Caladium crop hit hard by hurricanes


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The ramifica-
tions of hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne continue to
raise their ugly heads months
after the big storms roared
through Highlands County.
Growers in Lake Placid are
reporting that a combination of
weather conditions has resulted
in what might be the worst cal-
adium crop in history. Some
estimates run as high as 50-80

percent.
It has been difficult to deter-
mine the extent of the damage
or where it has occurred
because of the erratic nature of
the devastation.
"We've been growing since
1965 and this is the worst we've
seen," Carolyn Phyphers of
Happiness Farms said.
She said it has been sporadic
with some of the 15 growers
suffering more damage than
others. The problem has been


the sporadic
nature of the
damage.
"I usually
have a handle
on it by now,"
Dot Bates of

said. "But you dig a certain
amount of bulbs out of one area

Reportedly, it began with the
drought that occurred in May
just after planting. That causes
at least some of the seed pieces
to dry out.
But the portions that survived
were coming along nicely until
mid-August when Hurricane
Charley swept through
Highlands County.
The caladium fields are wide
open and the winds tore the leaf
tops off the young tubers.


"The leaves turned black ang

Sebring High School


musician scales new heights


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News -Sun
AVON PARK Morgan Anderson,
a 16-year-old junior at Sebring High
School, knows how to make music.
She has been playing the flute for
seven years and spent last weekend in
Tampa, a member of the All State
Symphonic Band.
The band was composed of 134
musicians. There were 15 flutes and
one piccolo. More than 200 musicians
auditioned for the flute section alone.
Anderson, the daughter of Marcia
Ward and Rodney Anderson of Avon
Park, had to travel to Stuart last fall
where she made an audition tape. Every
musician had to record several scales,
two assigned exercise pieces, and sight
read a piece written especially for the
audition process.
Last November, Anderson got word
that she had been selected.
The All State program is the work of
the Florida Music Educators
Association. Students are selected for
three different groups, symphony band,
chorus or orchestra. The goal is to pro-
vide an opportunity for gifted young
musicians to work with equally talented
individuals under the direction of some
of the finest conductors in the field.
Michael Haithcock, of the University
of Michigan, conducted the symphony
band this year.
The works the students perform are
selected to be provocative and difficult,
providing a challenge to those who,
because of their unusual talent, aren't

often challenged at home.
The band gathered at the Tampa
Convention Center on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, rehearsing six hours a
day, preparing for a 45-minute concert
Saturday afternoon. But the concert is
only the end result, the hours of
rehearsal, and the chance to work
together, were the real prize.
This was the second time Anderson
has .been a part of an All State Band. As
an eighth-grader at Hill-Gustat Middle
School in Sebring, she had been chosen

Heartland Idol winner


heads to Big Apple


By PHIL ATTINGER

SEBRING Highlands County
could have another local daughter in
show business.
Heartland Idol Irosnelly "Nelly"
Guzman has decided to pursue a
singing career in New York City. She
leaves in June.
Guzman already has family there, all
except her parents and three younger
brothers. They all have been wondering
when she would come back since she
sang with the Sebring High School
choir at Carnegie Hall. At the time,
Guzman told choral teacher Sandra
White that she needed 30 tickets.
It wasn't always so easy to get
Guzman on stage, and it still isn't.
She's shy.
Shy beginning
The first solo Guzman sang was
"Frosty the Snowman" in fourth grade
in New York City. Guzman, who has
always had long black hair and an
infectious dimpled smile, wore a white
dress with black polka dots and sang
while the teacher strummed guitar.
The next year, she came to Sebring.
Her fifth-grade teacher asked if she
could call her Nelly, and the name
stuck.
She would not have tried out for
choir at Fred Wild Elementary School if
a new friend Tracy Pollard
Schuknecht hadn't offered to sing
with her during the audition. Guzman

Phone scammers on the job again in county


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The slang term
for it is "social engineering." It
is a scam where a caller tele-
phones a resident and convinces
him to give out information le
would not normally divulge -
such as bank account numbers,
routing numbers or Social
Security numbers.
Experts agree on the solu-
tion. Never, ever give out such
information over the telephone
- especially if you don't initi-
ate the call.
At least two Highlands
County residents have been
approached in the past week
with such a scenario but neither
took the bait.
George Wuertz received a
call from a man offering him a
discount drug card if he would
just give out his bank account


number.
"They promised me 50 per-
cent off all my drugs, even over
the counter," he said. "They
told me it was a $900 deal but
because I was a senior citizen it
would only cost $299."
But when Wuertz asked
where the company was. the
caller couldn't tell him. Wuertz
also had asked for an address, a
call back number or to get addi-
tional information but the
callers never answered his
questions.
"All they do is keep pushing
to get that bank account num-
ber," he said. "He said they
don't take money from people,
they take money from the
bank."
Emma. Gray's experience
was different but it was the
same.
"He was really mad by the

Homeless Coalition to perform survey Jan. 27


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Anyone who is
homeless in Highlands County,
especially from a named storm,
will be counted on Thursday,
Jan. 27.
The Highlands County
Coalition for the Homeless Inc.,
in a partnership with more than
105 community associations
and businesses, will take a
count of all Highlands County
residents who are either home-
less or have been displaced by
any of the hurricanes that hit the
county this year.
According to Penny
Phillippi, county housing coor-
dinator, the-'count will affect
how much funding the county
can get to assist these people
and target those areas that need
the most help. It's estimated
that relief efforts may continue
for the next three to five years,


and this count will help deter-
mine how much relief the coun-
ty will get.
Gingerlee Michellindo of the
Highlands County' American
Red Cross Service Center said
the county will have to use new
information because there are
no figures on how many people
were homeless over the course
of 2004, and how many more
people were displaced by the
hurricanes.
The county will have three
stationary sites for the homeless
to travel to and be counted with
packets available for people to
fill out. Walker Memorial
Seventh-Day Adventist Church
at 1701 Oleander Drive is the
site for Avon Park, but sites for
Sebring and Lake Placid have
not been identified yet.
Michellindo said that even
after organizing this survey


over the last'month and a half,
finding good places has been a
problem, as has finding volup-
. teers. The coalition estimated
needing about 800 volunteers to
handle this survey in one day.
At last count, Michellindo said,
there were 11.
She said Highlands County
had no long-term recovery
plans in place for hurricanes.
"(We) need to get that set
up," she said.
To receive further informa-
tion or to volunteer, contact
Michellindo at the Red Cross
center at 386-4440, Anthony
Lomonico of Lomonico
Contracting Inc. at 385-8133,
or either Herman Fellin or
Alexis Casillas at the Florida
Heartland Rural Consortia for
the Homeless at 402-6925 or

time I hung up," she said.
In her case, Gray said the
caller claimed to be with a secu-
rity agency that was changing
account numbers.
"He wanted me to get my
check book and bring it back to
the phone," she said. "He said
he was doing it in the name of
security they're doing every-
thing these days on the excuse
it's for security."
In both cases the caller
refused to give the residents a
call back number and in each
case told them they already had
been notified of the reason for
the call.
Highlands County Sheriff's
Crime Prevention -Specialist
Nell Frewin-Hayes said these
are scenarios that occur here
regularly.
She said that more than tele-
phone calls, she has been


receiving complaints about
realistic-looking e-mails telling
people that businesses are
updating their accounts and ask
for bank account numbers and
other sensitive information.
The most insidious part of
that problem is that the Internet
address appears to be correct.
"The first part of it is right,
with the name of the bank or
whatever. The key is the last
part of the address. That's what
routes the information some-
place else," she said. "That's
where the problems begin to
occur. That's where they get
your numbers."
The scams are already hitting
cellular phones. Frewin-Hayes
received a text message on her
cell phone directing her to a toll
free number where she was
asked for her banking informa-
tion by an automated service.


She said that while it did not
appear that elderly residents
were specifically targeted local-
ly, many older citizens might
not be as skeptical or might be
more susceptible to some of the
scammers bullying techniques.
"Many of the older folks are
more trusting, especially if the
callers sound authoritative."
Already there have been
reports of scams surrounding
supposed aid to the tsunami vic-
tims and there were similar
problems with bogus charities
in the wake of the terrorist
attacks on New York and
Washington on Sept. 11, 2001.
"You have to be careful.
People want to be generous and
they want to help out but the
key is they have to make the
call," she said. "And don't give
out these numbers unless you
initiate the call."

SEBRING Suppose there
was an election and nobody
came? That is what happened in
Sebring as three city council
members, the city clerk and
mayor all have been returned to
- office without opposition.
Qualifying closed Friday
with only the incumbents filing
their paperwork.
"We take it to mean that-the
citizens are pleased with the
way the city is being run and
they are happy with the coun-
cil," said Kathy Haley, who is
completing her third term as
city clerk, "I think we have an
awesome team."
Haley said the consistency of
leadership at city hall would be
important over the next three
years as some of the key depart-
ment heads in the city are
preparing to leave. .
Among those looking at
departing the city are longtime
City Administrator Bob
Hoffman and Public Works
Director George Fox.
Also returned to office was
Sebring Mayor George
Hensley.
Hensley has served the city
for better than 20 years.
Hensley was a councilman for
17 years and has been the
mayor since 1999.
Hensley, who is best known
for representing the Heacock
Insurance Agency, was instru-
mental in the city's largest sin-
gle annexation movement. He
said there were several things


he looked forward to over his
next three year term.
"We continue to try and look
at our annexation policy in the
surrounding areas of the city
and I think that we want to con-
tinue to work together with the
county and with the economic
development folks in bringing
business to the area," he said.
Councilman Jeff Carlson has
served three terms in office but
this is the first time he has gone
back in without a campaign.
Like others, he takes the lack of
opposition as a sign the citizens
are satisfied.
"I think we need to keep
doing what we have been
doing," he said.
Carlson said he looked
toward more growth and annex-
ation.
"They're finding us. There's
going to be a phenomenal
amount of growth over the next
three years and we'll try and
control it the best we can," he
said.
Incumbents Margie Rhoades
and Buddy Whitlock served
two terms each.
The council will meet
Tuesday night and look at a
couple of annexation requests
including the Wolfe Creek
Ranch and Joe Davis property.


A small crowd of Order of the Purple Heart members, including a
half-dozen not pictured, stand beside a memorial that took several
years of work to get installed at Veterans Beach in Sebring. Joe
Dionne, Veteran's Services Officer for Highlands County, said it
makes Veterans Beach mean something.

Red Cross winter fund-raisers gearing up


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The local
American Red Cross has just
finished its first charity golf
tournament, and is now gearing
up for the annual Red & White
Ball.
The golf tournament raised
$4,984 in cash and donations,
said Art Harriman, director of
the Highlands County
American Red Cross Service
Center. It drew 157 golfers and
14 sponsors to Spring Lake
Golf Resort last Saturday.
The tournament was origi-
nally scheduled for the, first
Saturday in November, but hur-
ricanes pushed that date back to
the second Saturday in January.
"Joe DeCerbo at Spring Lake
was fantastic," Harriman said.
The golf resort had a casino
night on New Year's Eve and


donated the proceeds to the: Red
Cross. The resort also served
breakfast and lunch during the
tournament, while volunteers
baked cookies and muffins for
the golfers.
Hole sponsors included
Smith Barney, Heacock
Insurance Group Inc., American
Service Title & Escrow Inc.,
Highlands Independent 'Bank,
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division, Frames and Images
Awards, Turner Furniture, JBD
Enterprises, Carlson
Accounting, and Mid-Florida
Credit Union. Jackson Hewitt
Tax Service and Mosaic Four
Corers Mine, in Polk County,
were $500 sponsors.
Stephenson-Nelson Funeral
Home & Crematory and Curves
fitness club in Sebring, north
Avon Park and Lake Placid,
were both $250-sponsors.


Red & White Ball
The Red & White Ball is
now selling tickets. This year,
the Red Cross annual black tie
event will be at 6 p.m. Saturday,
Feb. 12, at the Lakeside
Playhouse on West Center
Avenue in Sebring. It will
include dinner catered by
Highlands Little Theatre -
dancing with music by
GrooVus, a silent auction in the
Thakkar Pavilion and cocktails
in the restored and renovated
Anthony's Lounge.
Tickets are $125 for a couple
or $65 for individuals. Tickets
are available at the Red Cross
service center at 1306 SE
Lakeview Drive in Sebring, or
by calling 386-4440.
Harriman said the ball will
feature a Red Cross signature'
French Champagne drink in a
cut crystal keepsake class for


$5. Highlands Little Theatre
will be selling a similar rum
drink. Both will use donated
spirits.
Harriman said businesses are
already calling to donate funds
or prizes for the silent auction.
One item is a motor scooter.
Sponsorships are still avail-
able at $1,000 for "Premier,"
$750 for "Red," and $500 for
"White." So far, Jackson-
Hewitt Tax Service, Great
Florida Insurance and an
anonymous individual have
signed on as "premier" spon-
sors. Stephenson-Nelson
Funeral Home & Crematory has
signed on as a "white" sponsor.

been -set at 500 feet from
churches or schools for any
business that sold alcoholic
beverages. That proved to be a
stumbling block for Jeni
Alterman and Malcolm Trott,
who are converting the old ice
cream shop on South Lake
Avenue into what they hope
will be the newest restaurant in
downtown Avon Park.
To be called
"Jeni's on
South Lake,"
Alterman and
Chef Malcolm
hope to make it
an upscale
place.
SHIREY While the
setbacks for
places that derive 51 percent of
their income for food will be
150 feet across the board, the
rules will be different for bars.
While they will be under the
same 150-foot restriction from
churches or residential areas,
the 500-foot barrier still will be
in place to separate them from
schools public or private.
"That rule is set by Florida
statute," Shirey said.
In their initial discussion,
Mayor Tom Macklin had point-
ed to churches locating in the
downtown area, which he said
threw a "1,000-foot circle"
around them for such business-


That was a problem that
could also have occurred along
U.S. 27.
He also noted that while bars
are prohibited from moving in
near a church, religious institu-
tions could easily locate near a
bar or tavern.
Under the new land develop-
ment regulations passed recent-
ly in Avon Park, churches now
may only locate in the city's
residentially zoned areas.
"We now require churches to
obtain an occupational license.
We're not charging them for it
- but it's a way so we can
track things and know where
they are," Shirey said. "So if
they wanted to locate in a com-
mercial area they would not be
approved because of zoning."
Shirey said there were a cou-
ple of churches currently still
operating inside the city's com-
mercial district, but once they
cease operations another church
will not be permitted to move
into those locations.
There were no speakers in
opposition to the proposal at'
Monday night's meeting and
Shirey had received no com-
ments at his office.
The second and final reading
of the measure is set for
Monday, Jan. 24.

SFCC Lifetime Learners begin second


decade of discovery, discussion, travel


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
For more than a decade.
Monday and Thursday morn-
ings have been set aside on the
calendars of active seniors for
the Lifetime Learners Institute
at South Florida Community
College.
Seasonal and year 'round res-
idents alike look forward to the
first Monday in November
when they can begin a new year
of lectures, discussions and dis-
covery
Before each class, friends
gather around the coffee pot,
greeting, laughing and catching
up on the latest news.
Newcomers are introduced and
welcomed into the group, many
of whom have participated
since the program began in
1995 on SFCC's campus in
SAvon Park.
Bill and Patricia Foxx,
Pennsylvania residents who
' winter in Avon Park, have been
members of Lifetime Learners
since shortly after it began.


"This is our favorite thing to
do in Florida." Pat Foxx said.
"Our friends up north ask us
why we go to the middle of
Florida. because we don't play
golf, or tennis, or do many of
the regular visitor things. I tell
them we go to school."
The Foxx's have most
enjoyed lectures about Florida
history, especially the series-on
Edward Bok and the Historic
Bok Sanctuary program, which
included a trip to Lake Wales.
"The lecturer came in cos-
tume and she told us so many
interesting things about the
Boks and about Florida in the
time period when they created
the sanctuary. It was fascinat-
ing," Foxx remembers.
Originally conceived as a
lecture series, the program has
changed and evolved over the
years to respond to the interests
and suggestions of its members.
Rebecca Rousch, coordinator of
community education at SFCC,
took over planning and con-
ducting Lifetime Learners three


years ago. Rousch describes her
role as an "idea broker."
"I look for speakers that
members would not have access
to any other way. Then I try to
bring together the people and
places that build on each topic.
I plan field
trips that relat-
ed to topics in
the lectures
that the mem-
bers find espe-
cially interest-
ing," Rousch 1
says. ROUSCH
One of the
most popular speakers last year
was Sebring architect Suzanne
Hunnicutt, who spoke on
Florida architecture from
Classic Cracker to Frank Lloyd
Wright. At the end of
Hunnicutt's mini-series, the
group took a day tour to Florida
Southern College in Lakeland,
which houses the world's
largest collection of buildings
designed by Wright. Few peo-
ple are even aware of Wright's
I'.


residency and impact on archi-
tecture in Florida.
This year, members will trav-
el to the Asolo Theater in
Sarasota to see "West End
Horror," a Sherlock Holmes
"whodunit." This will be fol-
lowed by a mini-series on mys-
tery writers from Poe to the
present.
Rousch admits that her initial
enthusiasm to expand the pro-
gram's scope and variety almost
overwhelmed her when she first
took over.
"When I came on board, I
was a newcomer to Florida,"
Rousch recalls. "I was.'wowed'
by the things I was looking at
from my northerner's point of
view. I wanted to bring a fresh
start, to change and update the
curriculum."
Rousch decided to depart
from the semester-long lecture
series because it was too rigid
to allow for variety. She wanted
to be free to take advantage of
interesting people who were not
available to teach an entire

greater depth.
After the first year, Rousch
designed a mini-series format,
With one speaker presenting
from two or four sessions on
their area of expertise. If the
group wants more, a speaker


will be invited to return.
"I am finding the mini-series
a good compromise between
the group's desire for in-depth
programming and the availabil-
ity of competent instructors
who have enough time and
material to hold their interest
for several weeks," Rousch
said.
The LLI schedule still
includes some dates throughout
the year for one-time speakers
such as Highlands County
Lakes Manager Clell Ford,
County Manager Carl Cool,
Sheriff Susan Benton and oth-
ers who have timely subjects of
interest to the group.
And then there are those busy
people whose work is so fasci-
nating that group members beg
to hear them again and again.
"They can't get enough of
Lisa Stoner from the Peace
River Refuge and Ranch.
Whenever I have an opening or
a cancellation in our schedule, I
call people like Lisa and ask if
they can spare a morning to talk
to us," Rousch says.
Members of LLI have
become idea brokers too. Pearl
and Ed Carter of Lake Placid
are among the many original
members of LLI who are still
active in the program. They
have also been members of
Highlands Little Theatre since
1982.
Pearl Carter came up with the
idea of combining the LLI
members with volunteers from
the Highlands Little Theatre to
provide a unique theatrical
learning experience. A commit-
tee of HLT members assisted
the LLI members in putting on
an excerpt production of "Out
of Order" a hilarious come-
dy based on the Neil Simon
classic "The Odd Couple".
From auditions to costumes
to stage makeup, the group
learned what it really takes to
put a production on the stage.
"I loved the idea because I
thought it would be interesting
for the seniors and good for the
theater," Pearl said. "I had done
some assistant direction, but
this was a chance for me to pro-
duce, to pull it all together."
For four weeks, group mem-
bers went through auditions,
rehearsals, makeup and stage
directions. Those who were hot
in the play helped assemble
props and prepare the set. After
the performance, everyone cel-
ebrated with a cast party.
Carter received a lot of
enthusiastic comments after the
experience. Several members
told her they had always wanted

project involving members of Lifetime Learners and Highlands Little Theatre.


to do this, but never had the
chance, according to Carter.
"I love doing things that have
a dual purpose," Carter said.
"Participation by HLT with
Lifetime Learners brought ben-
efits to the theater and the col-
lege."
Rousch is already looking to
the years ahead when the first
of the "Baby Boomers" will be
reaching retirement age. She


realizes that many of these peo-
ple may be working part time
long into their retirement age.
She foresees scheduling adjust-

Making do


Partners in Crisis host press conferences


SUMMER FERRANTE/News-Sun
A homemade street sign was put up at Old Pearl Street after Robert Carter, who lives on the
street, grew tired of the new street sign not being put up. The sign has been out since August, so
the homeowner made his own.


Public input sought on rule making

for Lake Okeechobee protection plan


Special to the News-Sun
The Lake Okeechobee Works
of the District program is a water
quality regulatory program man-
dated by the Florida Legislature
in 1989 and implemented by the
South Florida Water
Management District in the Lake
Okeechobee watershed.
With the passage of the Lake
Okeechobee Protection Act by
the legislature in 2000 and sub-
sequent adoption of the Lake
Okeechobee Protection Plan in
January, 2004, this program will
be amended to better support
the roles of the three lead agen-
cies SFWMD, -the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
to reduce duplication of effort.
Changes to this program will
happen through a process called
"rule making," which culminates
in adoption of a rule by the
SFWMD Governing .Board.


FDACS has undertaken similar
"rule making" programs in the
years since the Lake
Okeechobee Protection Act was
passed into law. The rule making
effort extends over several
months and is designed to give
the public ample time to under-
stand the issues and provide
input.
A series of public meetings
will be held to inform the public
about this effort and to begin the
process of taking input from the
public about the proposed
changes to this program.
The meeting in Highlands
County will be 2-4 p.m.
Wednesday in the Highlands
County Extension Office
Conference Room 2, 4509
George Blvd., Sebring.
The regional regulatory pro-
gram, as defined in the 2004
Lake Okeechobee Protection
Plan, extends from the
Kissimmee Upper Chain of
Lakes south to the Everglades


aP
F a


Agricultural Area. Agricultural
landowners in these areas may
volunteer to work with FDACS to
establish nutrient management
plans and implement best man-
agement practices. FDACS staff
will coordinate with the SFWMD
to work out permitting details.
The scope of the district pro-
gram has expanded to identify
phosphorus source areas
through monitoring, assessing
changes in land use, evaluating
BMPs, and permitting in those
cases where landowners do not
wish to participate in the volun-
tary program through FDACS.
For more information about
this program or Lake
Okeechobee restoration efforts,
contact the SFWMD
Okeechobee Service Center at
800-2504200 or (863)462-5260.
The SFWMD Web site at
www.sfwmd.gov also has a
tremendous amount of informa-
tion concerning the Lake
Okeechobee Protection Plan. ;

showing need
Special to the News-Sun
Florida Partners in Crisis for
District 14 will host a press
conference Tuesday in
Highlands County to highlight
Partners in Crisis's response to
the community's mental health
and substance abuse service
needs.
The conference will be part
of a two-day media event fea-
turing speakers representing
law enforcement, the judicial
branch, and clinical staff. A
similar meeting will be held in
Polk County the following day.
In Florida, county jails are
the largest institutions housing
the mentally ill. Florida
Partners in Crisis is a statewide
coalition of stakeholders
including judges, law enforce-
m'ent, correctional officers,
prosecutors, public defenders,
hospital and mental health/sub-
stance abuse administrators and
mental health consumers and
their families. Their commit-
ment is to promote access to
quality services for the treat-


Boara cerriflea

for mental health services


ment and support of adults and
children facing the challenges
of mental illness and substance
abuse disorders.
Today, Florida's local jails
house more than 10,000 offend-
ers with mental illness, many of
whom are low level offenders.
It is the position of Partners in
Crisis that if better access to
mental health and substance
abuse services were available to
individuals in the community,
these individuals would not end
up involved in the criminal jus-
tice system.
In addition to the scheduled
speakers, there will also be rep-
resentatives from area services
for comments and questions
available.
The Honorable Judge David
Langford, Sheriff Susan Benton
and Dr. Arthur S. Patterson will
speak at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the
Highlands County Court House
Jury Holding Room, 430 S.
Commerce Ave.
Other individuals scheduled
to be at the event include:


Deputy Sheriff Jan Tosella-
Sanders, sheriff's office; Jeff
Roth, Children's Advocacy
Center; Glen Simpson, Florida
Hospital Heartland Division;
Bob Rihn, Tri County Human
Services Inc.; Bennie Ahlred,
Peace River Center; Charleen
"Charlie" Stroup, Marge
Brewster Center; Fran Frazier,
advocate; and Steve Boyer,
National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill.
Partners In Crisis urges the
citizens of District 14 to support
increased funding for services
for severely and persistently
mentally ill individuals. The
rewards will not only be a more
humane treatment of people
with mental illness and sub-
stance abuse issues, but a meas-
urable cost savings to the com-
munity in dollars, stress on law
enforcement and disruption to
the community.
For information about
Partners in Crisis, contact
Stroup at 385-5179 or Kathryn
Doddridge at 314-4357.

more remarkable, because stu-

typically selected by teachers to

ly tried to compensate by shoot-
ing out a spray of tiny leaves in
an effort to survive. But they
simply used up the remainder of
the bulb.
"We ended up with fewer
tubers in the ground than we
normally have and they were
much, much smaller," she said.
Phyphers added that the
weather conditions also put a
sort of "crust" over the ground,
which deprived the developing
bulbs of air.
"They just didn't grow. They
just sort of stopped at that
stage," she said.
There are three main sizes of
caladium bulbs jumbos,
number ones and number twos.
"The jumbo crop is almost
nonexistent," she said.
One bright spot is that appar-
ently enough of each of the dif-
ferent strains survived so as
none of the individual varieties
were lost.


Anderson competed head to
head with students throughout
the state, and made the All State
Band, which is a higher tier
group.
There are three age levels of
All State groups: Seventh and
eighth graders, ninth and 10th
graders, and llth and 12th
graders.
Surprisingly, Anderson is not
interested in a musical career.


"We thought we were going
to lose some of them because
some of our crops were under
water for more than a week. But
we saved our seed and our seed
seems to be healthy," she said.
It appears that the crop will
recover, inasmuch as growers
use smaller bulbs for seed and
the extreme conditions at the
end of 2004 resulted in much
smaller bulbs.
But that means that there will
not be as many bulbs for sale as
there have been in the past.
Some growers have had to turn
down orders or send them back
unfilled.
Some of the more popular
varieties simply won't be avail-
able.
"Especially the strap-leafs,
'we're keeping them back for
seed," Phyphers said.
It also means that the plant-
ing schedule has been cut back
in some of the varieties.
"In some instances we will
not be planting as many acres of
certain varieties as we would
like, because we just don't have

She got another application,


but didn't feel right about it.
She had wanted to be "Dr.

fear of going into music was not
having an education to fall back

She asked her mother, and
learned her parents moved to

the opportunities there, then
started their family. Her mother
asked, "What are your dreams?


Instead she intends to be a cir-
cus aerialist that is a trapeze

last four summers going to

In addition to making music

have to sell some of them."
Phyphers said the latest prob-
lem has been this week's rain. It
has kept workers out of the
fields and has pushed back the
harvest another couple of
weeks.
As for Happiness Farms,
Phyphers said that due to the
stunted crop this year they have
not hired the normal seasonal
workers.
However, there appears to be
light at the end of the tunnel.
Bates said that with a normal
growing year, the crop could
"bounce right back." Although
there might not be as many
bulbs as there has been in the
past, but the two or three years
previous to the storm have been
ample.
"I think we'll have enough
next year to satisfy our cus-
tomers," she said.
Bates was very specific in
saying that she did not speak for
the industry, however, Phyphers
and other growers have
expressed similar sentiments.


the building the clinic now uti-
lizes was built originally as a
medical facility so renovation
work was kept to a minimum.
"It's not as large as some of
our others but it is well done
and very convenient for the vet-

he said.
Ann Decker, aide to District

said to date she had not

It was Foley who was a driv-

Guzman tells them to work

Guzman slept on it. Now

Chamber roots for a



beautiful Lake Placid


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID
Beautifying a town can be dirty
work.
In briefing the members of
the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce last Wednesday,
Bert Harris III explained this is
not such a bad thing.
Harris is president of Keep
Lake Placid Beautiful, a non-
profit corporation owned and
directed by the chamber. It has
been in existence for approxi-
mately 15 years and its purpose
is to develop and maintain vari-
ous beautification projects
;iound town. It is a chapter of
Keep Florida Beautiful Inc.,
which is a state affiliate of Keep
America Beautiful Inc.
Its work is made possible by
grants from federal, state and
local governments, some dona-
tions, and the work of volun-
teers.
Keep Lake Placid Beautiful
began its work on Interlake
Boulevard in two phases of
plantings. Then a far more

ambitious project was under-
taken with the dressing of U.S.
27 from its intersection with
Lake Clay Drive in the north,
down to South Central Florida
Railroad track.
SThis year the organization
will be working along north
U.S. 27, picking up the earlier
work and finishing off improve-
ments up to Lake Blue, adding
curbs, gutters, irrigation and
trees. The emphasis will be on
native plantings, relying in
great part on oaks, pines and
cabbage palms.
In addition, the railroad over-
pass will be pressure cleaned
and repainted.
On its north side "Welcome
to Lake Placid" will be painted.
Discussion is still ongoing as to
what to paint on the south side.
Work also will be done along
the railroad right of way along
Main Street.
Harris warned that initially
the transformation on Main
Street will be shocking. Right
now that area is green due to
trash trees, such as the invasive


Brazilian pepper. In order to
bring lasting beauty, however,
those trees need to be removed
and higher quality, native
species planted instead.
The'shock will come from
the immediate loss of the over-
grown invaders, and the bare
look which will result until the
younger, new trees grow in. The
city will keep that area mowed.
Another phase if planned for
about a year from now. The
plan is to address west Interlake
Boulevard (what was known as
Deen Boulevard). The goal is to
create an 80 foot right of way
which will be lighted, planted
with oak trees, and maybe have
a bike path as well. The project
will run from Devane Circle
west to Lake June Point.
Harris emphasized that Keep
Lake Placid Beautiful receives
public money, and as a result its
books and meetings are open to
public. He welcomes participa-
tion, particularly volunteers,
"We still need help," Harris
said, "and we always need more

TUFFI' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Weeding

with an

X-acto knife
I was amazed when I had
barely been at Signs Now for
five minutes and Pam Zeiss,
its normally rational owner,
handed me an X-acto knife.
And not just an X-acto knife,
but one with a brand new
blade and super sharp pointed
tip. Of course I almost put my
eye out with it, but we'll get
to that in a minute.
The fact is, X-acto knives
are one of the most important
tools a sign maker uses.
This is because signs today
are created out of vinyl, which
comes in large rolls. One side
of the vinyl has a coating of
powerful adhesive and a back-
ing of waxed paper, just like
postage stamps. A roll is
placed in a machine called a
plotter which traces out the
letters or design by cutting
into the vinyl. The sign maker
then has to remove all the
background, or excess materi-
al from the wax paper back-
ing, leaving only the letters.or
design behind. This process is
called weeding.
Weeding can be relatively
easy if the letters are large, but
is quite challenging if the let-
ters are small.
Even more demanding is
cleaning out the inside of the
letter b, d, g, e, etcetera, or
removing large areas of excess
vinyl from around minuscule

A sign of the times


Computers used to
generate signs today
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Until about 15 years
ago, signs were painted by hand. Then
technology created a change and the
industry moved to computer generated
graphics and the use of vinyl material.
Today, a sign maker sits -at a desk,
manipulating a mouse, creating virtual
designs which become real when they
are transferred to a machine called a
plotter and are cut into sheets of vinyl.
The vinyl comes in 50 yard rolls and
is either 15 or 20 inches wide. Larger
signs are pieced together like jigsaw
puzzles, only with straight edges.
Pam Zeiss has been doing this work
for about 14 years. Before that she
worked for a newspaper as a graphic
artist.
"Car ads used to wear me out," she
said, "you had to fit a book's worth of
information into an inch of space."
She left the high pressure, short dead-
line life for sign making, and has never
looked back.
Last year, in partnership with Igy
Soler, she bought a Signs Now franchise
and has been her own boss ever since.
Her work space is dominated by the
computers and plotter machine on one
side of a large room. But half of the
space is taken up with a table 20 feet
long and about 5 feet wide. It is on this
table that the bulk of sign making is
done, that part called weeding, where
excess material is removed from the
vinyl sheets, leaving behind the words
and designs which are then transferred
onto a permanent surface.
There are two grades of vinyl used,
intermediate and premium. The interme-
diate is easier to work with, but doesn't
last long outdoors. Premium vinyl is dif-
ficult to work with, but is highly durable
and can last for years out in the weather.
Between the two, signs can be made
for any surface or situation. Banners,
magnetics, car or truck signage, bill-

boards, everything is done with vinyl.
Take the billboards for example. Now
instead of building solid surfaces and
pasting the signs onto to them, open
frames are built and the sign, a sheet of
vinyl, is attached to it. Zeiss said the sys-
tem works much better, the only draw-
back being when the sun backlights it
and you can see through to the other
side.
Mark Manley is the local billboard


specialist, mounting the large sheets
onto the wooden frames.
Making sure the designs on these
large sheets is arguably the most difficult
work for a sign maker. Big as the table
is, the volume of material that makes a
billboard display is so large it overflows
the table and has to be gathered and
draped. This means the work is done in
sections and measurements have to be
very exact (how many inches up from

Dawn Nowell, who has been doing this
kind of work for 10 years and is the pro-
duction manager at Signs Now, works on |i

background vinyl until only barbed wire
is left. The design will be applied to a i!

Company which, among other things,
makes barbed wire.

the bottom, or in from a side) to be sure'
the final design is properly placed and
even.
There are hazards with smaller signs
too. For example, on one job, Zeiss cre-
ated a real estate sign that was 4 feet by,
8 feet and two sided. She worked with
great care, each side balanced and per-
fect. Pleased she delivered the final
product, only to receive an immediate
phone call from the Realtor. One side of
the sign was right side up; the other,
upside down.
Zeiss and her production manager,
Dawn Nowell, can create just about any
sign with just about any design. Many
jobs can be done overnight, or even in a
day. Although right now there is a seri-
ous back log of work and longer waits as
a result of the hurricane season.
Immediately after every storm, Zeiss
made a windshield survey of the
Heartland area. She estimates as much as
80 percent of all signs went with the
wind. Since August, she and Nowell
have been working full out just to get
back on schedule. Zeiss' brother, John
Phillips, who owns John's Pool Service,.
often stops by in the afternoon to help:

Sign makers largely learn on the jolb
but there are in-service programs and an
individual can become certified in tech-
niques, or on machines.

This Year
I Give Thanks
For My Life!

By:
R. Donald
Tomasik


I wanted to write and let you
knowthat am eternally greatful
to you for saving my life! I saw an ad
for mobile ultra-sound tests a
year before actually signing up to be
tested. I just had a feeling that some-
thing was not right My wife kept
urging me to spend the $179 and get
checked for nothing else but the
peace of mind. Boy, am I glad I did,
it was found that I had a 51/2 centi-
meter aortic aneurysm. I was able to
take mytest resultsto my primary
care physician and be referred to a
specialist, who's first question
was' how do you know you
have an aneurysm? I showed him
my Healthfair ultrasound photos, and
hesmiled and said, 'those Healthfair
screenings probablysaved your life!'
That was in February 2003 and
after a successful surgery, I'm
happy to say I'm in good health in
2004 and indebted to Healthfair USA
for saving my life! Unfortunately our
friend Connie in Vermont didn't have
these inexpensive tests and died of a
ruptured aneurysm. We miss her and
hope to see Healthfair mobile units
all over the country someday. It really
Is necessary to have these tests since
Medicare wont pay for the prevent-
ative screenings and I couldn't afford
to pay the hospital price! Thanks from-
both Marge and I for your 7
Test Package, it was truly an invest-
ment in my health!

Stroke & Aneurysm Prevention Package


Cost of
Healthcare
I am a physician here in
Charleston, SC; a very
skeptical one at that. I have
been seeing your ads in the
newspaper of your cardiac
and vascular screenings, and
have to say I was the first to
shout "scam artist". I started
getting patients showing me
this ad and asking my
opinion. Instead of answering
them with my first thought, I
decided to check into your
organization myself and do
some research. With the cost
of healthcare these days I
was very concerned of the
legitimacy of your
organization. The first thing I
decided to do was make an
appointment for myself and
see it from the inside. I also
needed the help of others to
compose an even stronger
report of findings. I then
gathered 11 other family
members and colleagues to
do your studies. I scheduled
various appointments for all
of us throughout the month
of June. I gave everyone an
appointment time and asked
them to report back to me of
their experience and results.
So for 12 of us it was off to
the testing sites inside of a
bus in various parking lots.
My findings were very
Impressive! I think your
organization is an astounding
service to the public! It is so
nice to see people like you
make this service available to
the public. I commend you in
this service of screenings you
offer at this price, it seems
impossible to do this in
today's society of medical
expenses. The rising cost of
healthcare today makes
plenty suffer and the
conformities of today
managed care makes us all
susceptible to the realities of
our'scope of care. I am now
your best supporter and I will
happily refer you to all of my
patients, and commend you
accordingly in the
community!

bits of punctuation.
To make matters more diffi-
cult, the only visual guide you
have are the faint lines made
by the plotter as it cuts out the
pattern. Worse. some colors
make these faint lines almost
impossible to see in the best of
circumstances.
In my case, however, the
best of circumstances was out
the window before I began.
Being nearsighted and using
bifocals, I couldn't focus to see
the lines through my glasses. I
had to take them off and bend
down to within an inch or two
of the material to be able to see
the lines at all.
So there I was, totally con-
centrated, having just cut the
leg of an m free, ready to pull
the strip of excess vinyl up off
the paper, the knife still in my
hand. my nose an inch off the
table. I gripped the edge of the
strip of vinyl and started to
pull, bringing the knife right
up into my face, slicing an eye
lash in the process.
Only blind reflex saved me.
It jerked my head back as the
blur that was the blade cut
across my field of vision.
The stupid part was that I
did this another two times
before the day was over.
Still, I loved this job. There
was real satisfaction in.trans-
forming a sheet of solid color
into readable words, or artful
design.
It is detailed work, rhythmic
and soothing, but you do need
to be attentive and careful,
because it is very easy to make
mistakes.
Because the plotter cuts only
the vinyl and not the paper
backing, the cut letter will
sometimes not separate cleanly.
It comes up with the piece of
background material you're
trying to remove instead.
For example, on the first
sign I worked on, I pulled up a
hyphen and the number 8 by
accident, crumpling them into
the scrap vinyl before I real-
ized what I had done.
Fortunately Zeiss was under-
standing, "It's not brain sur-
gery," she said, "you didn't kill
anyone."
Then there was the other
humbling experience.
Once the vinyl has been
weeded, transfer tape is applied
over it. This tape, which comes
in rolls of various widths, has
adhesive on one side, like the
vinyl, only the adhesive is not
quite as sticky. This way when
you remove the backing paper
exposing the adhesive side of
the vinyl letters, they don't

although Zeiss, when she's hir-
ing, offers $7 to individuals

This is detail oriented work
that requires patience, creativi-
ty and a good eye. Much of the
.woik is indoors, but time is
spent outside as well. Wind is a
special problem, sand and dirt
are the worst enemies, and
nothing can be done in the rain.

move around. And once you've
applied the transfer tape with
the letters to the permanent
surface, the tape can be
removed leaving the lettering
behind.
Well, we were working on a
banner, and it came time to
pull off the backing paper for
the first time. Zeiss showed me
how to do it on one side of the
job. She just got a good grip on
the leading edge and with a
solid jerk snatched it clean -
with the same sharp motion
you would use if you were
yanking a tablecloth out from
under a fully set dinner table.
This should be easy, right?
No.
Even with all my might I
couldn't get more than a frac-
tion of an inch of the paper to
pull away. The harder I tried,
the harder it became, especially
after I started laughing.


Again Zeiss was understand-
ing, reminding me that she had
been doing this long enough to
have become an expert. Then
she showed me her biceps
which are healthy and condi-
tioned, unlike mine which are
scrawny and untoned. There's
nothing like being shown up
by a beautiful woman, espe-
cially if she can cream you in
arm wrestling.
I guess I'll just have to stick
to typing. At least there it's all
in the wrist.

AVON PARK Rick Rose
has sold cars in Highlands
County for 20 years.
"I've sold to lots of folks," he
said, but in all that time "no one
carried a quality car for under
$5,000."
That's what he wants to
change. Rick and wife, Bekki,
have opened Roses Auto Sales
in Avon Park. They opened on
Aug. 2, 2004, survived all the
hurricanes, and "still did great
business," Bekki said.
Rick Rose said his concept is
simple: Make a small amount of
profit by selling a high volume
of inexpensive dependable cars,
and make a good living.
"I have personally sold to
2,000 people (in this county),"
he said. "If you treat people
well, they'll come back."
Often, he saw people who
were looking for a good car for
less than $5,000, and couldn't
find it. Many customers were
winter residents who wanted an
inexpensive second car to park
at their Florida home for when
they visit.
He hopes to have a "super-
lot" of higher-end cars eventu-
ally. For now, he has three high-
er-end vehicles, but the rest of
the'stock costs $4,995 or less.
When Rick Rose brings a car
in, he has a mechanic next door
look it over and fix any prob-
lems. If he can't get it fixed, he
sells it wholesale to another
dealer rather than hand it to a
customer. It's better to fix it
before it leaves, he said.
"If you have standards and
treat people well," Rick Rose
said, "it works out well."
Rick Rose, originally of
Tuscaloosa, then Birmingham,
Ala., started selling cars in
November 1984 with Bill
Jarrett Ford in Avon Park, then
worked 12 years at Jim
Blackman Ford in Sebring and
the last two years with other
lots. Rick also has recruited
Rick LaFlam, previously of Jim
Blackman/Sebring Ford, as one

of his sales staff.
Bekki kose, originally of
Huntington, W.Va., has been in
Florida 20 years, first living in
Fort Lauderdale for 10 years
and then in Highlands County
for 10 years working for First
Union Bank as a loan specialist.
After she and Rick Rose had
built client lists with repeat cus-
tomers, they built a business
together.
"He's wanted to do this for so
long," Bekki Rose said. "We
finally sat down and decided to


do it."
Rick and Bekki Rose cele-
brated 10 years of marriage on
Aug. 19. They met through his
father who sang in the church
choir with Bekki in Fort
Lauderdale. They now have a
18-month-old daughter togeth-
er. Bekki said the new business
works out great with the baby,
since the hours allow her to be
flexible.

Cardinals invited to train in Avon Park


Editor's note: The News-
Sun has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Aug. 8, 1934.
President Ham Breadon, of
the St. Louis Cardinals, has
been invited to bring the
Cardinals back to Avon Park
next spring for their annual
training trip in the South.
Letters from the chamber of
commerce have been sent, fol-
lowing receipt by Gilbert
Freeman of a letter from Mr.
Breadon indicating that the
Cards are open to an offer for
the coming spring.
T.C. Hobbs and E.G. Todd,
who are to be in Louisville next
week, have been instructed to
go to St. Louis for a personal
interview with the Cardinal
prexy and urge his return to the
Ridge metropolis.
C.R. Head, chairman of the
baseball committee when the
Cards trained here last, has also
- written a personal letter to Mr.


Breadon, pointing out that
Sunday games can now be
scheduled, which should make
it unnecessary to require a guar-
antee.
The letter sent by Secretary
Norton Smith of the chamber of


... -



commerce follows:
"Dear Mr. Breadon: The
Ridge is becoming baseball
minded. Locally, we have a
strong association, a very good
team. This was the nucleus of
forming the Orange Belt
League, consisting of eight
towns, seven of which are play-
ing Sunday baseball, and the
eighth is taking measures to do
so.
"They are playing excellent
ball, with increased interest and
attendance shown as the season
advances. A week ago last
Sunday there was the largest
crowd at Cardinal Field ever
assembled there to witness a
ball game.
"We also have in training two


teams of Juniors for entry into
the Junior League of the
American Legion next year.
"We have followed the won-
derful success of the Cardinals
this year with enthusiasm, and
we are all rooting for you. We
certainly would like to have the
Cardinals come back and train
with us this coming season, but
owing to conditions with which
you are familiar, we will not be
able to make a financial guaran-
tee. We feel, however, from the
enthusiasm for baseball devel-
oped in this section, that a good
schedule, for games to be
played during the training sea-
son, would produce a very sat-
isfactory return'.
"We could promise to have
the grounds in excellent condi-
tion and an attractive rate at the
Hotel Jacaranda. Also the
enthusiastic support of the
entire community, and would
be willing to pledge the sale of
a reasonable number of season
tickets for games, in adjoining
towns, provided you saw fit to
finance in that way.
"If this is of interest to you,
we would be very glad to hear
from you in regard to the mat-
ter."

appreciation for donated items
and acts of service during
recent months to the residents at
Highlands Village in Sebring.
Neiman and his wife, Kulani,
a member of the womanis
Auxiliary Unit of the American
Legion, are active in the work
of the organizations. The
Highlands Village residents are
not the only beneficiaries of
these efforts. Last year's work
included the donations of about
2,000 toys and stuffed animals,
as well as activities for groups
of all ages.


In the letter to Neiman,
signed by Sheila Gilley, admin-
istrator of Highlands Village,
other donations were men-
tioned. She wrote:
"Highlands Village would
like to thank everyone at the
American Legion for all the
items that were donated by the
Legion. The residents enjoyed
the wonderful food that your
cooks at the Legion prepared
and the stuffed animals they
received. We would also like to
thank Mr. Ed Neiman for bring-
ing his dog Alii, in to visit with
our residents, as they enjoyed
that very much."
Neiman says the Highlands


Village hopes to hold a yard
sale next month. Volunteers are
needed to assist with this proj-
ect and many other projects.
Anyone wanting to volunteer in
any capacity in assisting others,
including Bingo, and entertain-
ment, may contact Chaplain
Neiman.
Letters may be addressed to
him at Box 2179, Lake Placid,
Florida 33862. Writers should
include name, address, tele-
phone number and hours avail-
able to serve.
All local veteran organiza-
tions are appreciative of volun-
teers as well and anyone inter-
ested may contact any of the
organizations officers.

Let the sheriff

do her job
Editor:
Way to go J.P. [Fane, News-
Sun, Jan. 12] however I must
add to your comments because
I can. Don't know why I have
become so loquacious, after
this I'll sign off. Maybe. I have
a unique view of the office.
I know of only two employ-
ees of whom have suffered
greatly and one of them was on
the stage during her inaugura-
tion. She and I talk candidly
and can do so because of sur-
vival! We both have trepida-
tion, however, that will pass.
Your job offer, was a leap of
faith, as all in her office will
be!
Yes, Mike, you were offered
a job as a deputy sheriff. An
honorable profession. For you
to be so young and have pride,
I must wonder, in order to have
pride in life, one must first earn
it.
I took part in this election
(the first in three sheriff transi-
tions). How many can say that?
Three sheriff's transitions. It
was a' heated race, things said
that should not have been, how-
ever the public of which a
deputy sheriff serves has spo-
ken!
One must not promote one-
self. It is entirely about the pub-
lic first and then the sheriff,
however once established, you
must honor that person. That is
truly what democracy is!
The selected sheriff does the
job as elected! One always
goes into public service hoping
to maintain a job. The rest is
earned. One must earn that with
every transition.
I can still claim loyalty to
Howard Godwin..
Honor, loyalty and duty are
the rent one pays for life. -
Bill Tillghman, successor to
Wyatt Earp.
SIn order to learn, one must
endure many emotions, get past
those emotions and finally
obtain wisdom.
I know some which have
obtained wisdom, however,
they may only be counted on
all of my digits.
I am wise, as I can stand afar
and see close. My shoe size is
9.5, and I haven't found anyone
to fill them and not looking.
I have been an EMT, civil
deputy, deputy sheriff, detec-
tive, patrol sergeant, patrol
lieutenant, Swat team instruc-
tor and commander, legal
intake advisor, watch com-
mander, academic instructor,
agriculture deputy, transporta-
tion officer and I'm sure I am
missing something somewhere.
I don't have pride. The pride is
in wearing the uniform, not in it
wearing you!
An honorable job and doing
it with honor is all one wishes
in life!
I also did my time in the bar-
rel, hope I did it well, became
satisfied and need a new chal-
lenge! You could have taken
that job, made a challenge of it
also. My time came from very
hard work as my elevator did
not rise to the top as fast as
yours!
I mention the above, only to
stress to the public, that Mike


Brown was offered a job and an
honorable one. Would he have
done the same? He must realize
that to be king is not always
what it seems....
Everyone deserves respect.
Has the public become more
dangerous? No, the ones wear-
ing the uniform have. It takes
little time to put the uniform on
and years for its appearance to
wear off. This is maturity. To be
not perceived as a police officer
but a peace officer. My many
years instructing at the acade-
my revealed this to me.
I am a small, frail person,
always have been, but I learned
very quickly that if you can't
walk it you don't talk it. Most
of my career was in an
unmarked vehicle without a
cage. When asked how I trans-
ported people, they ride up
front with me. And yes, rook-
ies, these were the dangerous
ones you all want to seek!
We have a new sheriff; she is
not a woman, she is a lady. I
patrolled Highlands County
with her husband (FHP) and
many times was proud to have
him there. I've known her for
three decades. Let her go
through her transition and do
the job.
Jerry Fennell

Thanks given

for the prayers
Editor:
The Runner family Nan,
Rachel and Ricky would
like to thank everyone who
helped Ricky through his brain
surgery by coming to see him,
calling and all the prayers they
sent to God to help him get
well.
They would also like to ask
you to please remember him in
your prayers to help fight the
cancer that the doctors said was
a losing battle.
Thank you and may God
bless you.

What more can the United
States do to help the tsunami
victims in Asia?

With the millions in dona-
tions of money and supplies,
they could send 10,000 skilled
workers from the United States
who lost those outsourcing jobs
to India, Sri Lanka and
Thailand.
They could help reconstruct
the homes, buildings and roads
destroyed by the tsunami.
This would be a terrific way
to help both types of victims.

Do you have a message for
Sheriff Susan Benton you
would like to share?

I really regret missing
Sheriff Benton's swearing in
ceremony at SFCC due to a
serious illness in the family. I
met her and Lt. Mike Brown
through their Operation
Positive C.H.A.N.C.E. pro-
gram for Kids at Risk as a
member of the Sebring
Optimist Club. She had devel-
oped a grant to help some of
our teens each summer who
might have been on the wrong
path in life.
The Optimists look forward
to working with her and the
sheriff's .department to contin-
ue serving the youth of our
community. The several pro-
grams already in place have
helped many kids develop solid
credentials toward viable citi-
zenship. The challenges facing
our youth today are more
intense and complicated than
ever before and it is even easier
to be led astray. The depart-
ment staff has been a signifi-
cant benefactor in reaching our
youth early and reducing crime
accordingly.
The sheriff's department is
not only our first line of
defense; it is a crucial factor in
protecting our youth.

Letter


'Free speech not only lives, it rocks.'
OPRAH WINFREY, television talk-show host, 1998


No matter what the hospital
does, I am willing to bet some
of their patients are still going
to find a way to fast food even
if their doctors donit like it. If
the patients are smart though,
they will hold off their cravings
until after the nurse has
weighed them.


Do you

want fries

with that?

I eat fast food. I like the con-
venience of driving up and get-
ting something to silence a
rumbling stomach. Now that
many of the fast food restau-
rants take credit cards it has
become even easier to just run
through a drive thru, whereas in
the past a lack of cash would
have deterred me.
I realize that by admitting
that I eat a number of meals
that. I have obtained through
drive thrus I am opening
myself up to lecturing and dis-
approval from the Food Police.
I can hear their footsteps now,
drawing ever closely as the
medical community joins them
in telling me I do not eat
healthy and I need to knock it
off and learn to love broccoli.
It doesn't help that my body
will not bur up the calories
fast enough to keep it off my
hips. Of course, when you sub-
mit yourself to the tender mer-
cies of the medical community,
one of the things they always
want to do is check your
weight. If it were up to me,
only God and I would know
what my weight was. However,
I am by nature one who tries to
get along with those around me
so when the nurse says get on
the scale I sigh, roll my eyes,
take off my shoes and get on
the scale.
Look, if they would make
baked chicken and steamed
broccoli taste like a Whopper
with cheese and fries, I promise
I would eat them more fre-
quently. It's not even that I
don't like baked chicken and
broccoli I just like
Whoppers and fries more. I do
like the salads and some of the
"healthy" stuff they are now
coming out with and I try to
indulge in those. It's just hard
when it is so easy to get the
tasty stuff.
There are things I do not
expect at a fast food restaurant.
I do not expect to get cloth nap-
kins. I do not expect filet
mignon. Finally, while I take
my kids to fast food restau-
rants, I certainly don't expect to
get any there.
Thesame cannot be said for
a woman who was in labor in
Missouri last weekend. She got
in the car with the child's
grandmother and started for the
nearest hospital, which was 15
minutes away. They soon real-
ized it was too late for the hos-
pital.
So, they pulled over at -
you know what's coming a
McDonald's restaurant and the
woman gave birth to a baby
boy under the golden arches.
No word on if the restaurant
gave her a value meal after that.
They did, however, include
the mother's name. Her name is
I am not kidding Ann
McDonald. No word on the
name of the baby, though some
people with what I consider to
be warped senses of humor
have suggested "Ronald."
I wonder what the Cleveland
Clinic would think of all this.
The Cleveland Clinic is a cen-
ter that is renowned for its
treatment of heart disease. Its
heart center performs thou-
sands of heart procedures.
The place is apparently large
enough to have a food court
with a number of restaurants.
One of the restaurants that has
a space there is a McDonalds.
Some of the doctors at the clin-
ic see that as a glaring contra-
diction, and there have been
noises about kicking the fast
food restaurant out. Both sides
are mum about most of the
details, citing ongoing negotia-
tions. But a spokesperson from
McDonalds did point out that
they had franchises in about 36
hospitals and no one else was
unhappy with them.

News-Sun, Sunday, December 16, 2005


Have you looked in the mirror lately?


Are you afraid to
look in the
mirror, because you
are afraid to confront
yourself, afraid that
you will not like
what you see, afraid
that you may not rec-
ognize the woman
staring back at you?
Do you cringe with
disgust every time
you see you?
Maybe your reluc-
tance to look at your-
self stems from the


POINT
PONI
PAULINE


choices you've made to neglect
yourself while focusing on all
the many distractions around
you. You fail to take care of
yourself because your commit-
ment to others overshadows
you. By neglecting you, you
have failed you miserably.
Everything in my life takes
precedence over me. It's
amazing, I polish the furniture,
I clean the windows, I mop and
then I shine the floors. Ooop's,
there is a spot ... I'd better clean
it. I do the dishes, I do the
laundry. I clean the mirror but
still I refuse to look at me in the
mirror. I scour the pots, pans
and baking tins, some of which
aren't mine.
Little Johnny, Michael and
Sarah, my spouse, extended
family members and friends
need me, so I can't find time for
me. There isn't enough time in
the day for me. And so I put me
on hold. Perhaps later, but later
,never comes.
So as I'm about to pass that
mirror, I glance away, afraid to
confront me, the woman in the
mirror.
I whine to myself complain-
ing, nobody loves me ... I'm
taken for granted at work, at
church, at school, my spouse,
my children, everyone around
me. I am drained, but I have to


go on. they need me.
I go shopping, oh
yes! I buy the best
product for Dick,
Tom, Harry and Jane
S .. ooop's I don't have
S", enough money left to
buy myself the 99
S cents fragrance. So 1
go home angry
S TO because I didn't have
the 99 cents to spend
DER on me.
How do you
AYA expect anyone to love
you when you're
tired, haggard, neglected look is
a testimony that you don't love
you.
Does the above illustration
reminds you of you? Well what
are you going to do about it'?
Girlfriend, wake up. No need to
sink in depression.
The fruit of the spirit is joy
and peace. Get balance and
change your lifestyle. Take
responsibility for what you've
become, reclaim what God has
ordained you to be. You have
been promised joy unspeakable
by God. So get rid of that diet of
"Pity Pop." Stop indulging in
the "Whine."
Instead, arrange your spirit
into a becoming demeanor as
you prepare for the next step.
"A cheerful heart is good medi-
cine, but a crushed spirit dries
up the bones." Proverbs 17:22
Here are a few ideas for start-
ing to take care of you: Buy
yourself some aromatheraphy
candles and oils. Note I said
yourself, not them. Indulge in
some bath and body personal
hygiene products. Buy yourself
a new outfit. Some gourmet tea,
gourmet coffee or hot chocolate
whatever delicacies you enjoy.
Excited? Get-up early, go to
your bathroom, light those fra-
grances, as you close the bath-
room door say "This is the day


that the Lord has made. I will
rejoice and be glad in it."
Inhale, and allow the power of
the Lord to rise upon you. Step
into that warm bath ... feel the
suds and fragrances envelop
you.
Now, wasn't that exhilarat-
ing?
Confront the woman in the
mirror, and begin to bless you.
Massage those body products
into your skin and bless you.
Reaffirm your commitment to
yourself and your creator by
saying, "I love me. I thank you
for loving me. Help me to
understand me. and love me
more."
Now, go sip that cup or two
of hot beverage. Ummph!
Doesn't that taste good? "She
who gets wisdom loves her own
soul, she who cherishes under-
standing prospers.: Proverb
19:8
These exercises are to be
done everyday. Find the time
for you. Eliminate some of the
clutters of life. Many of the
things we compel ourselves to
do aren't necessary.
I often tell my friends, "The
in-box will always be full ...
when you kick the bucket
tomorrow, there will always be
someone else to replace you."
Remember, always take
some time to enjoy you.

Memories brought back


I have written
many articles these
past I1 or 12 years.
Enough to fill at least
two scrapbooks of
those I had pub-
lished. Many of those
were created for a
topic given us at the
Ridge Area Writers
Group of which I was
a member.
I write this one for
the sole purpose of
giving my heartfelt
thanks to my doctor


'

who is, of course, my urologist:
Dr. Kevin K. Lee. I do this not
only for the medical blessing he
did for me a few years back but
because of the thing he did
recently that got to the heart of
me.
For those who may not know
it, Dr. Lee was in the Navy dur-
ing the Korean War and when-
ever I go to his office for my
scheduled visits he tells his
nurses and his receptionists that
I am his "Army buddy." Of
course I always add to that
statement by saying that he is
my "Navy buddy." I know that
he gets a kick out of that.
A few weeks ago I received a
telephone call from his recep-
tionist telling me that Dr. Lee
brought a couple of books to the
office for me to pick up. Books
that he wanted me to read,
describing segments of our


country's military
actions during World
War II.
One, the epic
account of the war's
greatest rescue mis-
sion of the prisoners
held by the Japanese
three years after the
battle of Bataan; The
prisoners that had
been in the Death
March: The book is
entitled "Ghost
Soldiers" by
Hampton Sides. It is


a great war story and unforget-
table.
The other book, entitled
"Brothers In Arms" about a
black tank outfit, really got to
me as I read it. I realized that
we, that is, my outfit and of
course myself, were involved in
some of those incidents with
that outfit. We were with the
Third Army under the com-
mand of General George S.
Patton.
Those tanks would lead the
way for us during many battles.
Though there were many casu-
alties, wounded and dying dur-
ing those battles, it would have
been a whole lot worse without
the help of those tanks. Many of
them were wounded and killed
also. The author, Kareem Abdul
Jabbar, mentions my outfit fre-
quently in different segments of
the story. That's when I really


dug down to the heart of that
book.
Most of those segments were
during the Battle of the Bulge.
Especially some places when
we fought side by side. Places
like Saarlautern, Bastogne,
Malm'edy and then to Belgium,
Luxembourg, Holland and, of
course, crossing the Rhine
River.
While reading that book, I
came to places that caused my
eyes to well in tears, bringing
back to me the names of bud-
dies of mine that were wounded
and sent back for medical treat-
ment. Whether they all made it
or not, I don't know. Then there
were those that were killed right
there and then.
Memories. It makes me think
about the old adage: "Lest we
forget". Sometimes I want to,
though I know that I shouldn't.
I sit there, trying to shake
those memories from iny mind,
but I can't, so I would put the
book down for a spell or even
for a day or two. Eventually, I
got to read it all and cannot
fully begin to thank Dr. Lee for
this thing he has done for me.
Yes, I think a lot about Dr.
Lee. He is my doctor, but most
of all, my friend.

Late run allows

Lady Dragons to

knock off Devils
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKE PLACID There's something to
be said for a fast start. There's also some-
thing to be said for a fast finish.
Unfortunately for Avon Park, the Lake
Placid Lady Dragons had both Friday night.
The Lady Dragons closed the first quar-
ter strong to take control of the game, then
went on a back-breaking 9-0 run in the
fourth quarter after the Lady Devils had ral-
lied to within striking distance, pulling
away for a 46-35 victory in a key District
10-3A showdown.
It was revenge for the Dragons (10-2
,overall, 5-1 in the district) after the Devils

handed them a 52-44 defeat
in Avon Park Dec. 7. In that
game, pdint guard Shantavia
Conner scored 20 points for
the Devils. Friday night, the
Dragons were determined not
to let that happen again, using
a swarming pressure defense


to disrupt the Avon Park offense.
"They did what I asked, they maintained
(Conner)," Lake Placid coach Shonda
LeGree said. "She only had one (point). We
take her out, that leaves everybody else to
beat us."
Senior guard Rose Charles was all over
the place for the Dragons, blocking shots,
making steals and grabbing rebounds on
both ends of the court to go along with 12
points, tied for game-high with teammate-
Whitney Lee.
"If she'd learn to quit worrying about
scoring, because every night you're not Rose Cha
going to be on," LeGree said of Charles. Friday ni
"(Tonight) the defense was on, the passing
was on. She did all right."

Pair of hat tricks highlight

of Lady Dragons' victory

LAKE PLACID Cindy Andrade stole the show
with five goals for Lake Placid in an 8-0 win at Avon
Park on Monday. When the two teams met again Friday
night in Lake Placid, she shared the wealth.
Andrade had a hat trick, giving her eight goals in the
two games against the Devils, but Ashley
Lake Placid Hurm equaled that three-goal total, lead-
ing the Dragons to a 7-1 win and keeping

Elizabeth Sottile said of her two stars.
"That's what they're up there for. I expect


them to do that every game, so they did what I expect-
ed them to do."
Even though the result may have been similar, the
Lady Devils did show some marked improvement from
the first meeting of the week, putting more pressure on
the Lake Placid goal and breaking up the shutout with
a 30-yard shot from Mary Rose Heston late in the sec-

Defense leads

Devils to only

win of night
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK The best
way to answer a team's second
9-0 run of the game is to hold
them without a point the rest of
the game.
Avon Park did just that
Friday, holding Lake Placid
scoreless over the last 6:17 to
secure a key home 43-39 victo-
ry in District 10-3A play.
"I'm really pleased with our
defense. It's been that way all
year," Avon Park head coach
SEric Zwayer said. "It's some-
thing we've real-
ly worked on Avon Park
hard in practice, 4
and our kids have
done a good job Lake Placid
defensively, but
you've got to be
able to score,
too."
While Devaris Strange pro-
vided much of the offensive
punch from the outside, with a
game-high 17 points for the
Red Devils (4-7, 2-2 in the dis-
trict), foul trouble kept Pat
Menzies from carrying his
dominant inside play from the
first half over to the second.
."He's really our catalyst
inside. He gets things going
u defensively and offensively,"
Zwayei said of the junior, who
S scored eight of hiis 10 points in
the first half. "It's very impor-
tant to keep him out of foul
ne trouble. I think he realizes it's
important. We had to keep him

Vazquez scores four goals

to lead Lake Placid rout
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK It was a good night to be Edgar
Vazquez. Really a good night to be anyone wearing
green as the Lake Placid Dragons ran way with an 8-1
victory over Avon Park Friday night.
Vazquez had four goals on the night, keeping the
Devils winless on the season.
"The first half we came out real hard Lake Placid
and in the second half they scored a few
goals and we had our heads down and the
penalties kept coming and coming," said Avon Park
Avon Park forward Derek Gorman.
Four to be exact. And Lake Placid was
on the receiving end of three penalty
kicks within 20 feet of Avon Park goalkeeper Austin
Maddox.
"We just started slacking on the (defense)," Gorman
said. "I mean, they would come in and our goalie would
come out too soon and just stuff like that."
"It was really important to us because we had about
a month off," Lake Placid head coach Josh Virkler

Blue Streaks lash Lightning


By JEFF CANTWELL

SEBRING The Blue

tamed the Lehigh Lightning
and Sebring rolled to a convinc-

night.
The Lightning game flashed

the threat into harmless heat

sparked by steals and rebounds.
Senior forward Weston

points and brought the large
crowd to its feet for an ovation
after driving hard to the goal for


a slam dunk that put Sebring up
66-28 with 58 seconds left in

because of that. Obviously, they
went on that run then."
Still, Lake Placid (9-5. 2-2)
wasn't able to take advantage of
Avon Park's over-agression,
making only nine of 19 free
throws.
"Free throws let us down,"
Lake Placid head coach Steve
Young said. "To me that's the
difference in that score."
Yet the Red Devils made sure
the numbers from the floor
were just as paltry, as after
Yurrie Robinson scored the last
of his team-leading 16 points to
put the Green Dragons on top
39-37 with 6:17 to go,. Lake
Placid missed its final seven
field goals.
"Definitely, we had a good
defensive effort. We held them
to 39 points. I preach if we can
hold a team to 10 points per
quarter or less, we're playing
pretty good defense."
Young, too, was pleased with
his team's defensive effort,
which helped it stick around.
"I just went in and congratu-
lated the kids," the coach said.
"They could have melted down
a number times during the
course of the game, and they
just battled back and battled
back and battled back."
"They played zone the whole
game, and I think it kind of
threw us off," Zwayer said. "It
was a change-up for us. It
slowed the game down a lot.
We were looking to push the
ball and we weren't able to
push too much. I'm just glad we
were able to stick in there, and
even when the tide seemed to
turn, we were able to come out
with a victory."
Avon Park led by as many as
13 before the first run, which
bridged halftime, and seven
before the second Lake Placid
surge at the end of the third
quarter and start of the fourth.
"Our guys are really starting
to buy into playing through
adversity," Zwayer said. "I
think even when times got a lit-
tle bad and they were making

shots and we weren't, we still
guarded, which is our biggest
part of our game is to guard,
and play defense. That's some-
thing that can be constant. And
we stayed constant guarding the
whole night."
Menzies returned in the
fourth quarter to help the Red
Devils ice the Green Dragon
offense, and erased the short-
lived Lake Placid lead with a
pair of free throws.
"He's going to be there pret-
ty much every night," Zwayer
said of his center. I really tried
to get him to step up to the next
level, and I think he's making
positive steps to get there."

said. "And to come back and win decisively I
think will give us a little bit of confidence going
into the later part of the season."
Lake Placid's offensive pressure was apparent
early when they swamped Maddox with four
shots on goal in the first 15 minutes. Avon Park's
Carlos Bosque rifled off one shot in that time, but
Maddox and Lake Placid goalkeeper Eulsi
Ambrasio, in turn, deflected each of the early
shots.
The Dragons (5-3-4) pressure finally broke
through, however, with a Vazquez goal to put the
score 1-0.
By then a more physical game took form and
as the minutes melted away, two players were
given warnings for foul play.
Moments later, Avon Park's Lee Albritton and
Ambrasio collided inside the goal box chasing
after a loose ball, leaving Ambrasio injured on
the turf.
The call went in favor of Albritton, giving the
sophomore a free kick 15 feet away. That penalty

Outback. I think I'll ride for this
one though," he said.
Perry opened game scoring
with a 3-pointer from the side,
but Lehigh led briefly a couple
of times before Sebring edged
to a 12-11 lead at the first horn.
Nitz hit a goal to open the sec-
ond period and Sebring never
trailed from that point.
Kevin Dixon and Nitz both
scored four points in the second
quarter to help the Streaks pull
away to lead 27-18 at halftime.
Sebring kept pouring it on in
the second half as Joe Aaron
bagged a short jump shot to
open the scoring. The Streaks
later embarked on a staggering
8-0 run after Brooks drove the
baseline for a layup.
Brooks closed out the run
with a touch shot driving to the
basket and Perry and Dixon
added goals to bulge the lead to
37-22. Luke Birge bagged a 3-
pointer just ahead of the buzzer
to open up a 44-27 lead heading
into the final period.

helped Strange get open for his
three treys.
"He's a good shooter, and he
knows when to take shots,"
Zwayer said of the 5-foot-9
guard. "He's going to be out
there shooting a lot, and he
knows he's got to make a lot of
those shots."
Strange's ability to deliver
helped Avon Park pull even
with Lake Placid in the 10-3A
standings.
"Lake Placid, they've been
playing well of late, and I think
we're starting to come around,"
Zwayer said.
"It's definitely an important
game, a district game. It's dou-
bly important."

Albrittonwonverted his shot.
Avon Park wouldn't score again.
Lake Placid added another Vazquez goal on a
penalty kick and went into the break with a 2-1
lead and a lot more to prove.
"I think we got a little bit out of our game in
the first half because a couple of calls were
against us," said Virkler. "Whether or not they
should have I don't know, but we kind of pan-
icked a little bit. But we were able to work of it
and come out in the second half.
An explosion of six goals in the final frame did
just that.
Vazquez hammered in his third score of the
night in the 35th minute on an indirect kick from
30 feet out and Carlos Chavarrin banked in a
David Moore pass from the corer in the 33rd
minute. Goals by Qracio Molina and Nestor
Barragan then closed things out.
"I liked the fact that in the second half that we
adapted to what Avon Park was doing," Virkler
said. "They were faster, getting pressure on them,
getting bodies on the ball. We were able to play
quicker, make quick decisions and move the ball
around to make them chase us."

RUN

3-2), Hipps said, wasn't the
pressure defense. It was the
failure to convert from the
numerous free-throw line that
aggressiveness created for the
Devils, who shot jut 15-of-31
from the charity stripe.
"That would have put us in
the game," Hipps said. "We
have to work on that. We work
on that constantly in practice.
I've got to find some way
where these girls can learn how
to shoot free throws properly."
It would have been worse for
the Devils if they hadn't hit a
mini hot streak from the line in
the third quarter.
The Dragons led 12-5 after
,the first quarter, and an 8-0 run
in the second quarter opened
the lead to 24-12 at intermis-
sion, but Avon Park climbed
back into contention by hitting
8 of 11 foul shots in the third
quarter to trail 30-22 heading
into the final period.
Kysi Wooden who, along
with Tacoria Jones, led Avon
Park with nine points hit a
put-back in the opening minute

Devils would get.

evaporate.
Miller Heating trailed 21-15 as they came in

ble first loss of the young season, the Heaters bats

The Dragons (8-7-0 overall,

four quick goals.
"Whenever we play teams

always want to play all the

Lopez shot. Lopez didn't need
any help the next time, using an
Avon Park defender to bank in a

minutes later to make it 5-0.
Just two minutes after Lopez

the net off a rebound of her own
shot, then closed out her hat
trick six minutes later on a
breakaway started by a nice
pass from Jennifer Dehart.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Perpetual

feeders
A few months ago, I
noticed some tiny birds sit-
ting on the tiny perches at our
newest cylinder-shaped feed-
er. In the past, I've only seen
them briefly during winter
months. 'Usually they leave;
but, this time they stayed. I
believe they're yellow finch-
es wearing their winter coats.
So, I bought a finch feeder
and hung it near our pond. It
was the best money I've ever
spent. Now, more than 15
finches enjoy the feeder and
bird bath right near our
screened porch.
I've noticed that these tiny
winged creatures are perpetu-
al feeders. It's rare indeed to
see the feeder without our
feathered friends. And.the air
is gently graced by their quiet
songs.
I love having my meals on
the screened porch accompa-
nied by these little birds.
They flutter and dance in the
air finding a perch and enjoy-
ing the meal. And though a
sudden movement may cause
instinctive flight, they're
soon back, comfortable with
our company. Their presence
got me to thinking.
Am I a perpetual feeder at
God's abundant table? Am I
hungry to know him? Do I
feast on his Word, drink in
his wisdom and know the sat-
isfaction of his Spirit filling
me?
Besides times of actually
sitting down and reading the
Bible, going to church and
Bible studies, what other
ways might I be a perpetual
feeder like these tiny birds
inspire?
At first, the feeder only
- had a few birds. But, it was-
n't long till they had spread
the word about their nourish-
ing find.
So, too, telling others
about God will keep me ever
before the One who feeds me
because I can't be poured
out unless God fills me.
The birds flutter and dance
in the purpose they've been
created for. They don't try
soaring like eagles or climb-
ing trees like squirrels -
falling and frustrating their
instinctive call.
So, too, I must sita on
course with what God has
called me to do. Sometimes
it's easy to be pulled in other
directions eager to meet
legitimate needs. But, if I.
dance to the tune that is play-
ing specifically for me, I'll
fulfill my purpose.
Sometimes watching them
contentedly feed and sing
reminds me that even just
lifting a song of praise and
meditating on its truth will
bring contentment of soul.
Giving thanks and enjoying
God's creation are all means
of perpetually feeding.
In these ways, I keep God
ever before me and give him
firstplacein my life.
Knowing he loves Ine, cares
for me and has created me for
his purposes brings rest and
assurance.
"Keep me safe, O God, for
in you I take refuge. I said to
the Lord, 'You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no
good thing.' I have set the
Lord always before me:
Because he is at my right
hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore, my heart is glad
and my tongue rejoices; my
body also will rest secure."
(Psalm 16: 1-2, 8-9, NIV)
Perpetually feed on God
and be satisfied. Selah.

Warren spends



majority of 100 years



giving to others


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING


n Jan. 5, Lola Cooper
Warren, of Sun 'N Lal
having been born a ce
ry ago, had a big reasc
celebrate.
It is a good thing that they make
individual number-shaped candles,
because blowing out 100 can-
dles at once Iwoulld be a
challenge for anN one .t
any age.
What she wished
as she blew out
her candles is /
between her and '-
God; but if
anyone is ..--
deserving of ': :-
having their
wishes grant- "
ed, Warren '"
certainly is.
Born in a
log cabin in
Georgia 100
years ago,
Warren has
experienced
things in her
life-that most
people now li\ig in
can only read
about and imagine.
She was one 01of
dozen children born to
Dr. Charlie Coopelr nd
Julia Redding Cooper;
and can remember the Warrei
days when electricity was days in
scarce, cars were not


ke,
ntu-
on to

Alaban


around; travel was accom-
plished on foot, horse, or via horse-
drawn carriage (for those fortunate
enough to have such a luxury), and ris-
ing at 3 a.m. was required to complete
the chores necessary for survival. These
were the days of "early to bed and early
to rise;" and that was the way of
Warren's earlier life. There were cows
to be milked, animals to be tended to,
and food to be prepared, among other
things.
One time, Warren recalled, "I went


Lola Warren, of Sun 'N Lake, wears her
'Joseph coat' of many colors while she
holds an adorable hen in a basket. These
items were both handmade by her. She
has sewn countless such items and gener-
ously given them to others during the
course of her 100 years on this earth.
Warren is a very talented woman and has
used her many talents to bless others, a
reflection of her kind and generous heart.


down to milk the cow on a Sunday
evening and the cow kicked me; and
the bucket went onto my head. It was
half full of milk. My mama looked at
me and said 'What happened to you?' "
Telling the story made her smile, as she
envisioned that day so long ago.
Warren has fond memories of her
father, the only doctor in the area at the
time. "People would come to the door
asking for his help all the time.
S He made house calls and I
rode wslth him sometimes
in a buggy pulled by a
mule v hen he would
.. .... go and see
patients."
Doctors back
then did a lot of
Sbartering for
sern ices; and
Warren's dad
S was no excep-
:, lion.
According to
her. he would
trade his serv-
Sices for "pretty
much every-
thing."
Recalling
memories of her
childhood and her
father' work,
Warren laughed as
,. she recounted a time
%hen a man came to the
house seeking help.
"An old black man came
Courtesy photo to my daddy and says, 'Mr.
younger Cooper, my wife's sick. I
na. want you to come over and
see what's the matter with
her.' My daddy got in the
buggy and went over there and told the
old man to put a hot poultice (a mixture
of cornmeal and chopped onions) on
her chest. The next morning the man
came and said, 'Mr. Cooper, my wife
ain't no better.' Papa said, 'Did you put
the poultice on her chest?' And the man
says, 'We don't have a chest; but I put
it on the trunk.'"
One of her earliest memories is the
sinking of the Titanic. That was a huge
tragedy and was reported in newspapers
everywhere. "It was awful," she said.
She also remembers living through
World War I and World War II (she had
family members serving in both), the
Depression, and many other significant
and life-changing historical events
throughout her life.
When Warren was 22 years old, she
married her husband, Preston, and start-
ed her own family. Giving birth to her

two daughters and one son was, she
reminisced, "the happiest time of my
life. I loved my children."
While Warren's life was filled with
many happy moments, of which she is
grateful, one can't live that long with-
out experiencing pain of heart.
Unfortunately, Warren has witnessed
the passing of nearly all of her family,
including not only her parents and her
siblings, but also her two daughters.
Currently her son, the only remaining
member of her immediate family, is
very ill on the other side of the conti-
nent where he lives in California. With
her health being as good as it is, she
likely will survive him as well.
What she wants now, she said, is "to
just go home." Perhaps that was her
birthday wish as she blew out her can-
dles. While she is blessed to be of
sound mind and passes her time reading
all sorts of books (and, until recently,
playing the piano, quilting, and sewing
as well), and is in excellent health, she
misses all those she has loved and cared
for in her life who have gone on before
her. Currently she has been "adopted"
into a family and, though not biologi-
cally related, is surrounded by people
who love her and have embraced her as
their own.
Joe Schwalenberg, of Sun 'N Lake,
was married to Warren's oldest daugh-
ter, Dapheine, for 25 years; and now,
through he and his new wife, Betty,
Warren has been welcomed into the
home of Joe's mother, Ruth Robinson,
also of Sun 'N Lake. This has been a
win-win situation, as Warren has a
place to stay with people who love her;

Warren.


and the family has the privilege of hav-
ing another "grandmother."
"I grew up with my ex-wife; and so I
always knew Lola as 'Grandma,' "
Schwalenberg said. He described
Warren as a person "who always did
everything for everyone. She was
always cheery and happy and never
expected anything from anyone else.
She was independent; had a good sense
of humor; and took care of herself and
others; but always appreciated anything
anyone did for her." He continued, say-
ing, "She always made the most out of
any circumstance." These characteris-
tics, he said, "make it easy to want to
help her."
"You want to believe that people who
take care of others, will one day be
taken care of by others when they need
it," he stated. "And she did that."
She not only cared for others in her
personal life, but also in her profession
as a nurse for many years, during which,
time she worked at a nursing home.
"She never owned a car her whole
life," Schwalenberg said, "and she
walked everywhere she needed to go.
When she worked as a nurse she
walked at least five miles a day."
Walking so much is what he and
Robinson attribute to her long and
healthy life.
Schwalenberg further recalled
Warren telling stories about her time in
Georgia, where she lived close to the
railroad tracks.
"Hobos traveling the tracks would
often come around and she wouldn't let
them in; but she would make food and,
with her shotgun in hand, go out and
put it on the table outside. Then she'd
go back in and watch them come and
eat it."
This act of kindness exemplifies both
her ability to take care of herself and
her compassionate and generous spirit
toward others.
Warren couldn't think of any "secret
to living so long;" but said that she has
learned some important lessons
throughout her many years on this
earth.
"I've learned to read the Bible; to tell
the truth; to treat people right and good;:
and to appreciate everything you get," I
she shared.
And those are the things she has
done, and continues to do to the degree
she is able at this stage of her life. She
has given of herself through sharing
with others her time, treasures, and tal-
ents, and doing so without complaint;
an example for everyone, regardless of
age.

Travelogue shows 'America



- From Sea to Shining Sea'


SEBRING The Kiwanis
Club of Sebring's 2005 trave-
logue film series will continue
Tuesday, Jan. 25, with a show-
ing of "America From Sea to
Shining Sea."
The program begins at 5 p.m.
at the Sebring Civic Center. It is
sponsored by E.O. Koch
Construction Company and
Heartland Title Insurance
Agency Company.
The film covers Cape May,
N.J., to San Simeon Beach,
Calif. Whaler's chants are heard
in Barnegat Bay and Mystic
Seaport, Conn., and Gloucester,
Mass., is featured because it is
the setting of Rudyard Kipling's
"Captains Courageous."
In New York, Washington
Irving is remembered at Sleepy
Hollow, and Lowell Thomas
tells about rival softball games
with President Franklin D.
Roosevelt's team at Hyde Park.
From the splendor of frozen
Niagara Falls to hot coffee and
pie at famous Rosie's Diner, the
film travels south to join the
kayaker at Nantabala near
Bryson, N.C.
Following Daniel Boone's
Wilderness Road, the film paus-
es at Cumberland Falls and
Appomattox Court House, in
Virginia, to recall the ending of
the Civil War.
In Memphis, Tenn., ladies of
fashion display gowns from the
Victorian Age of Innocence,
and Elvis Presley's ghost greets
tourists at Graceland Estates.
A stop in Florida's subtropi-
cal.Everglades finds alligators
cruising the pond while swamp
birds dry their wings. Air bug-
gies skim the surface through
tall saw grass. At Daytona
Beach, it's Bike Week in early
April. Bikers of all ages ride on
the hard packed sand. Pelicans
wait for a handout at a fish
cleaning station.
"Mlile Zero" near the White
House in Washington, D.C.,
marks the beginning of the trek
west and the annual blooming
of the cherry trees.

The lighthouse is a navigator's beacon at the mouth of Delaware Bay
in Cape May Point, N.J.. Built by Major General George Meade in
1859, it continues to operate today as a lighthouse as historical
museum. The lighthouse is one of the landmarks featured in
'America From Sea to Shining Sea.' The documentary will be
shown by the Kiwanis Club of Sebring at 5 p.m. Tuesday at the
Sebring Civic Center.


auction and a look at the
Percheron plow horses who
work the farms of Lancaster
County.
The bridges of Madison
County, Iowa, are romantic
American icons that Charles
Dickens called "barns over
rivers". Six are still standing in
the vicinity of Winterset, the
birthplace American actor, John
Wayne. The film pauses to
watch cowboys competing in a
rodeo before moving on to
catch a sign of longhorns on the
Dog Iron Ranch in Oolegah,
Okla., the birthplace of country
philosopher Will Rogers.


Sunrise over the Grand
Canyon raises the curtain on
our visit to America's spectacu-
lar natural wonder. As many as
five million visitors per year
peer into the gorge, which was
carved over a period of five
million years by the Colorado
River. The steam train conduc-
tor explains the south rim. A
park ranger tells us to be careful
near the edge, while Trail Bbss,
Ron Clayton, briefs the "tudes"
to "drink your water" during the
Tennessee mule ride down
Bright Angel Trail.
From layers of rock in the
canyon to piles of snow on a


mountain pass we see a mam-
moth snow blower keeping the
continental Divide over
Monarch Pass. We pause at the
Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado
Springs, Colorado. The garden
of the gods displays rock for-
mations that challenges the
imagination. Then we take a
wintertime drive up Pike's
Peak, a piece of cake until the
pavement turns to sand over
snow and ice. But not to worry,
it is well-maintained and open
only to the 11,000-foot eleva-
tion. The winter view from here
is well worth the drive.
Landing at Salt Lake City,
we observe cloud formations
evolving into a spectacular sun-
set at the Great Salt Lake. The
setting is transformed into a
biblical mirage as. costumed
players make a Sunday school
video. Jules Verne wrote "Five
Weeks in a Balloon" before he
wrote "Around the World in 80
Days". Today he would be
equally thrilled to see hot air
balloons drifting over the vine-
yards of Napa Valley, Calif. We
celebrate the bounty of the har-
vest with a gourmet dinner on
the Napa Valley Wine Train.
Luther Burbank's garden is
Santa Rose, Calif., is the setting
for rare trees and flowers. The
Shasta Daisy, Elephant Garlic
and thorn less cactus are a few
of his creations. Here, too, three
American giants met in 1915 to
celebrate the opening of the
Panama Canal. Burbank, the
gardener; Henry Ford, who put
us on wheels; and Thomas
Edison who invented the light
bulb and the kinetoscope, a bet-
ter film projector.
We watch the making of a
Hollywood movie and then
move to the Pacific Coastline at
San Simeon Bay to see the new
sport of kite surfing almost
like being tethered and pulled
by an aero-plane for the grand
finale.
America was never more
thrilling and more beautiful!

film series, contact Grace
Owens at 273-1421.

Ornamental cabbage and kale

adds decoration to garden


Flowering cabbage
and kale are ornamen-
tal versions of the edi-
ble varieties. They _.
have been hybridized H
and selected for their
ornamental features
including bright
foliage and compact
growth.
Growing best in GRO
cool weather, the
seeds are sown in the SEIA
early summer. In late
summer and early fall, High
when the plants are County
several months old, Gard
transplant them into
the garden. As the
weather cools, the purple, pink
or white colors of the leaves
become pronounced. The plants
tolerate cold weather, and in
mild winters can look attractive
until spring.
Ornamental cabbage and
kale are grown for their colorful
and decorative foliage. They
develop large rosettes of gray-
green foliage, richly variegated
with cream, white, pink, rose,
rose-red and purple.
Ornamental kale leaves are
frilly edged and sometimes
deeply lobed. Those of orna-
mental cabbage usually are ruf-
fled but don't form a tight head.
The plants have unlimited
use in the landscape. They are
attractive in borders or can be
very effective groups of three,
five or more. They can be plant-
ed in containers for the deck or
patio and for window boxes.
Plants should be set about
12-15 inches apart for best dis-
play. The ornamental cabbage
and kale usually grow 8-18
inches high and 12 inches or
more across.
Some authorities indicate
that the leaves can be eaten,


4





WING
ISON

lands
Master
deners


cooked or raw, but
there is disagreement.
Some say they could
cause vomiting and
diarrhea if eaten raw
and in quantity by
small children. The
roots are most danger-
ous and should not be
eaten.
Kale is attacked by
the same pest that
plague cabbage, broc-
coli and other related
vegetables. If the
leaves are to be eaten,
use the proper pesti-
cides and by all means
follow the directions


on the label.
Plant in full sun for the best
color, and keep plants watered
during dry weather. Although
fairly tolerant of dry soil, young
plants will not grow to full size
without plenty of water. When
given adequate water, sun, and
fertilizer, small transplants
grow quickly.
If the weather turns warm
after they are in the ground,
cabbage and kale may grow
upward from the base and their
normally short, hidden stems
may grow too long. When this
happens, the rosettes seem to be
sitting atop tiny "trunks." If this
occurs, dig them up and replant
deeper, right up to the base of
the rosettes, so that their stems
are buried.
The bright rosettes of orna-
mental cabbage and kale should
be attractive through the winter
unless the temperature regular-
ly dips into the teens.

Moscow Philharmonic performing concert Monday

90 musicians will fill the stage
of the South Florida
Community College
Auditorium when the Moscow
Philharmonic Orchestra per-
forms a concert of the music of
Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff
at 7:30 p.m. Monday.
Considered one of the
world's premiere musical


ensembles, the Moscow
Philharmonic was formed in
1951 under the direction of Yuri
Simonov.
It has won acclaim world-
wide for its opulent sound and
impassioned interpretations of
classical and contemporary
Russian repertoire, and the
works by Mahler and The
Second Viennese School, Aaron


Copland, Leonard Bernstein
and George Gershwin, and a
body of avant-garde and new
music.
Many of the Philharmonic's
more than 100 recordings have
won awards. It has collaborated
with notable musicians such as
Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel,
Krzysztof Penderecki, Van
Cliburn, Nikolai Petrov, Maxim


Venegerov and Yefim
Bronfman.
The Philharmonic is on its
I Ith tour of the United States.
The performance is co-spon-
sored by Mary Ellen Ward and
Highlands Independent Bank.

Jo Ann Castle returning to SFCC Matinee Series


Pianist found
fame at young
age on Lawrence
Welk Show
AVON PARK Jo Ann
Castle, a popular member of the
Lawrence Welk Orchestra, will
bring her versatile musical tal-
ents to the South Florida
Community College Matinee
Series.
The show starts at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday in the SFCC.
Auditorium.
Introduced to show business
at the age of 12, Castle's piano
style has become a combination
of the veracity of Jerry Lee


Lewis and the flamboyance of
Liberace.
TV Guide says, "Jo Ann
Castle doesn't just tickle the
ivories, she hammers them as if
she is building the piano instead
of playing it."
Castle came to Welk's atten-
tion when she was 19. On her
20th birthday, she appeared
with his orchestra for the first
time.
For the next 10 years, Castle
pounded through hundreds of
shows and corny tunes. She left
the show in 1970.
By the start of the 1990s,
Castle was booking shows a
year in advance. In 1994, at the
invitation of Lawrence Welk Jr.,
Castle became a headliner at the


Lawrence Welk Champagne
Theatre in Branson, Mo. Since
2001, she has kept a busy
schedule of solo and duo
appearances and in 2002 she
hosted a PBS special on
Liberace.
She has a star on the
Arkansas Walk of Fame in Hot
Springs.
Castle's performance is co-':
sponsored by Wachovia Bank
and Trust, Tim and Martile
Blackman and Captain D's
Seafood.
A limited number of tickets
will be available the day of the
show. For ticket information,
contact the SFCC Box Office
from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. week-
days at Ext. 7178, 453-6661.
