2004 hurricanes

revealed more

changes needed
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
Thousands of homes leaked
during last year's four hurri-
canes because of problems in
how water drains from exterior
walls. That is a predicament
that some homebuilder's asso-
ciation officials say needs to be
addressed in the state's building
code.
During the hurricanes, water
leaked through small cracks in
the walls of stucco-covered
buildings, a normal occurrence
that usually doesn't cause seri-
ous problems.
But the enormous amounts of
rain generated by the August
and September storms over-
whelmed the walls' ability to
expel the penetrating water.
Local home inspector John
Leonard has seen it here in
Highlands County as well.
"Yeah, some of the leaks and
mold I have seen are a direct
result of this situation," said
Leonard, who owns and oper-
ates Cardinal Home Inspection.
The seepage occurred in
homes throughout Florida but
was a particular problem in
Central Florida, which was
hammered by three of the four
hurricanes.
"A lot of it was in gable ends
of houses," Leonard said.
That is the tapered, trapezoid
ends of the home. The treat-


ment of many of those during
the building process involved
the use of wire lath placed over
felt paper or some other, similar
material. Then, when the block
wall was stuccoed, it was coat-
ed all the way up to the soffit.
"What happens on the wire
lath as opposed to the block
portion of the wall is that
expansion and contraction takes
place. As a result, the stucco
gets a series of hairline cracks
in it," he said.
As paint deteriorates, the sit-
uation continues to worsen.
While under normal conditions
it might simply be undesirable,
when hurricane force winds are
combined with torrential rains.
"That blew rain right through
those cracks. The water then
went down into the block or in
the case of a frame dwelling
into the stud wall section of the
structure," he said.
Builders say it is normal for
water to leak through stucco-
clad exterior walls. Once in the
walls, the water is directed
downward by a water-resistant
barrier, such as tar paper, or the
water is absorbed, redistributed
in the wall and then eventually
released outside.
However, many homes were
unprepared for handling the
amount of water that came with
the hurricanes.
That has caused p.ol,'eI1
especially with moTi-
"If the mold problem is
prevalent enough or the folks
have a determining allergy to it,
the only fix is to strip the dry-

Holding balloons, surrounded by children who adore her, Diana Meneely is at home in Lee
Sizemore's second-grade class at Park Elementary School. She has been named School Volunteer of
the Year for Region 4, selected for the honor from hundreds of other volunteers.


Park Elementary proud of


its volunteer of the year


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Park Elementary School
was buzzing with excitement Friday morning.
Diana Meneely, who has volunteered there for
the last four years, has been chosen the
Outstanding School Volunteer in Region 4.
Florida is divided into five regions. Region 4
is made up of 15 counties including Collier,
Hernando, Hillsborough and Lee counties. This
means she was selected from among hundreds
of volunteers.
It also means she will be competing with the
winners from the other four regions- for the
honor of being named Florida's School
Volunteer of the Year.
Meneely, who is a customer service repre-
sentative at Highlands Independent Bank's
branch in Avon Park, volunteers in Lee


Sizemore's second grade every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday. She arrives at 7:30 a.m.
and spends her time tutoring, reading to stu-
dents, grading papers, or making phone calls,
doing anything that needs to be done.
Then, every Tuesday and Thursday she
spends her lunch hour as a volunteer in Miurine
Welch's fourth-grade class.
As if that weren't enough. she tutor:s -udents
after work.
"What captured the selection committee's
attention, I'm sure, was IIe Uict Iilhat Dian
could choose to sleep late, or use her lunch hour
to relax. Instead she prefers to come to school'
and work with our students," Principal Patricia
Landress said. "We are blessed to have her."

Klingensmiths' daughter handles security at inauguration


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID While most peo-
ple kept a close eye on the president on
their televisions during last week's inau-
guration festivities, James and Jane
Klingensmith were looking for their
daughter in the crowd.
Sarah Klingensmith (Lt. Col. United
States Air Force Reserves) whose par-
ents, James and Jane Klingensmith, 20-
year residents of Lake Placid, has taken
part in three presidential inaugurations
as part of the security team. The current
inauguration for President George W.
Bush involved her in the military gala,
"Saluting Those Who Served" on
Tuesday, "A Celebration of Freedom" on
the Ellipse on Wednesday, and the 55th


inaugural parade on
Thursday.
At Bush's first inau-
guration in 2001, she
served on the security
team at the military gala.
And in 1996-97, as a
major in the USAF, she
was on the Armed
Forces Inaugural
Committee for President
Bill Clinton's second I
inaugural.
"Sarah was a graduate
of Orlando High School, Lt. Col. Sarah ]
then attended UCF
ROTC (University of Central Florida
Reserve Officers' Training Corps), and
received her commission with the Air


Kl


Force, having served 17
years. After a tour in
Korea, her last active
duty was at the
Pentagon," said her
mother, Jane
Klingensmith.
"We're very proud of
her, but I was apprehen-
sive because it is so dan-
gerous," Jane said. "She
called us on her cell
phone and told us what
she was wearing and
ingensmith exactly where she was
located. We were watch-
ing the TV at the same time and when it
mentioned the Naval Memorial, we both
stared and said, 'Oh look, there she is.'


She was between the Miami police in
blue and the Georgia Highway Patrol in
their 'Smokey' hats."
Sarah is presently a Reservist with the
Defense Intelligence Agency. "This
event was well put together. People from
all over the country were brought togeth-
er to honor the president, whether the
voted for him or not. That was nice,"
Sarah said. "Every state had representa-
tion. The military gala was very moving.
It was all-inclusive. It touched every
branch of the military."
This culminating ceremony of honor
was served and protected by people cho-
sen especially for their trust and compe-
tence. Yet fundamentally, Sarah's still a
daughter, a parent, and a fellow citizen -
who's just doing her duty.

SEBRING A new star has
been launched in the Alan Jay
Automotive Network. The
Alan Jay Nissan dealership
soon will move into a new
building.
Crews have started moving
dirt for the new facility, which
is slated to go up on Howie
Road.
"It's going to be cool," said
Alan Wildstein, who owns and
operates the Alan Jay
Automotive Network.
The planning for the project
has been under way for better


than a year.
"We had to do some annexa-
tion, then some other things to
get permitting for the property,'4
he said.
Previously, the Nissan deal-
ership had been co-located with
the Alan Jay Toyota but now it
will have its own separate jnd
distinct facility.
"The Nissan dealership is so
hot right now, we decided it
was worth the commitment to a
totally new facility," he said.
Dubbed a "premier facility"
by Nissan, the signature build-
ing will have a number of

SEBRING Are you,
or do you know a former
Miss Highlands County?
Christie Spiegel is looking
for you.
"I'm looking to try to
create some history for
Miss Highlands County,"
said Spiegel, who has coor-
dinated both the Miss
Highlands and Junior Miss
Highlands County pag-
eants.
She has been digging
through the archives and
has found some of the win-
ners from the 1950s and
1960s. Spiegel's goal is to
find and subsequently
invite as many of the for-
mer winners as possible to
this year's event.
"The night of the pag-
eant, I'd like to have them
on stage," she said. "But I
would like them to call the
fair office so I know how
many of them are coming.
I'd also like to have sashes
made, like 'Miss Highlands
County 1957.'"
Spiegel said anyone with
information on the former
winners should call the
Highlands County Fair
offices at 382-2255 and ask
for Barbara.

SEBRING The communi-
ty center was packed Friday
afternoon as members of the
Sun 'N Lake Improvement
District board voted unani-
mously to begin negotiations
with Severn Trent Management
Services to take over the day to
day operations at the sprawling
housing development.
The Kissimmee-based
branch of the international com-
pany was picked from among
four finalists to assume the task.
Severn Trent may be best
known for its expertise in water,
wastewater and pipelines.
However, it also helps munici-
palities with their operations.
In fact, it has more than 180
different entities for which it
performs like functions, includ-
ing the city of Weston.
Representative Ed Goscicki
made the presentation for
Severn, explaining that under
its plan there would be a
phased-in approach.
If all goes as planned, the
group would take over Feb. 1.
Within 30-90 days most all of
the employees currently work-
ing for the district would


become Severn Trent employ-
ees.
Goscicki called the plan "an
extremely successful model."
He assured both the board
and the assembled residents that
the takeover would save them
in the neighborhood of
$275,000.
In any case, it would be well
below the amounts budgeted for
the fiscal year. The projected
management cost of $617,000
undercut the more than
$800,000 budgeted for that line
item and the proposed $1.7 mil-
lion for operating costs fell
below the $1.8 million budget-
ed by the district board.
While many of the residents
were full of questions, company
officials said a lot of the
answers would depend upon the
success of negotiations and fur-
ther study.
When pressed as to whether
the group would continue to
operate out of the town hall,
Goscicki said they had been
looking to centralize functions
with an "on site operation" but
also alluded to a "part-time dis-
trict management" calling a
full-time management post "not
cost effective."


Agents, deputies



question wrong



man at funeral


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Darrell and
Debra Davis say law enforce-
ment mishandled a contact
Wednesday at a funeral at
Progressive Church of God by
Faith in Avon Park.
At, about 3 p.m., after the
service, a man ahd woman
approached Darrell Davis as he
was getting in his truck. Debra,
on.the passenger's 'side, .didn't
know what was happening until
she walked around the front.
They were asking for his identi-
fication.
"I asked, "" '
'What is this? .
April Fool's
Day?' Darrell
Davis said, but
at that point he
saw a -U.S.
Marshal's DAVIS
badge on the
woman's belt and a Highlands
County Sheriff's Office patrol
car pull into the parking lot.
Knowing they were serious, he
reached into his back pocket for
his wallet.
Debra Davis said a
Highlands County sheriff's
deputy who had gotten out of a
nearby marked patrol car had
his gun drawn, while another
deputy standing nearby had
unsnapped his holster and had
his hand on his weapon. She
asked him why he wanted to
shoot her husband, and he
allegedly told her she needed to
move back.
Darrell Davis showed the
marshals his identification
while plain-clothes officers
walked up. One in a red cap
said, "This isn't the one," so
they handed back his identifica-
tion and left.
It was only later that he
learned they were looking for
Roy Anthony Graham, 39, a
fugitive convict whom sources
said would be at the funeral.
This confused Davis, who has
worked for the Avon Park


Sanitation Department for, 25
years, and doesn't think he
looks at all like Graham.
"I know they. (have) got to do
their job," Darrell Davis said,
"but they've got to do it the
right way."
Sheriff's Lt. Randy LaBelle,
the man in the red cap, said
marshals did everything they
could not to create a scene.
"To me, they showed great
restraint," he said. "I can under-
stand their (Davis') feelings. I
was in the vehicle with these
marshals."
LaBelle
came in on his
day off to
assist since
Graham was
originally his
case. Despite
claims that the
GRAHAM hearse was still
there, LaBelle
said federal agents waited until
the funeral procession had left
and the parking lot had cleared
to approach someone who, to
LaBelle, looked like a heavier
version of Graham.
Graham has a heavy
Jamaican accent. LaBelle didn't
know it wasn't him until he
heard Darrell Davis talk.
LaBelle "said he could not
have seen everything that hap-
pened, but said no one drew
weapons.
"I did not see that one time,"
LaBelle said. "When I walked
up, trailing the marshals, I
observed what was going on."
Debra Davis said her hus-
band normally leaves his identi-
fication in his truck and worries
what might have happened if he
had reached into his truck with
deputies on alert.
She has reported the case to
both Lester Roberts with the
local chapter of the National
Association for the
Advancement of Colored
People, as well as the Rainbow
Coalition in Chicago.

Sun 'N Lake Special Improvement District Board Chairman Dr.
Marvin Fischer talks with Severn Trent representative Ed Goscicki
following the group's presentation. Severn Trent is in negotiations
with the district to take over the day to day operations of the devel-
opment.


He also was uncertain of
exactly what percentage of
workers might be retained in
the switchover, noting that
although the positions first
would be offered to current
employees, some would not
accept. He did promise a wage
and benefit package compara-


ble to their current status.
When the question of the
security operation and the fire
department came up, Goscicki
said that had not yet been con-
sidered.
As to the relationship
between the board and the man-
agement company, Board


Chairman Dr. Marvin Fischer
explained it would be much the
same as it has been in the past.
He said the board would con-
tinue to set policy and the com-
pany would carry it out.
However, the board might not
he as "hands on" as it had been
in the past.
"We have been active over
10-15 years. A management
company can do the day to day
work and the board won't have
to carry that out," he said.
This is not the only such
operation in Highlands County.
Severn Trent reportedly also
operates Spring Lake and
Goscicki alluded to another
branch of the organization that
has been doing pipeline work
on U.S. 27.
The move by the board met
with what Fischer referred to as
"reserved applause" from the
audience.
.The board instructed Interim
General Manager George
Puffenberger and attorney John
McClure to enter into negotia-
tions with the group and bring
them back on Jan. 28.
They sat down with company
representatives immediately
following Friday's session.

Next phase of widening U.S.



27 under way in Avon Park


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Work is under way for the
next phase of the widening of U.S. 27. This por-
tion stretches just 1.2 miles from State Road 64 to
Lake Isis Avenue.
Crews from Carolina Consulting Corporation
are doing the job, which includes resurfacing and
drainage improvements.
The two lanes in both directions are still open
and company officials said no lane closures are
expected.
"We've completed all of the milling of the
existing asphalt of the two northbound and two
southbound lanes," said Carolina Consulting
Project Manager Tom Pastore.
Crews now are removing the existing concrete
medians, islands and separators. They plan to
start the reconfiguration of those in about a week.
"We're going to-be putting back the new con-
crete traffic separators and changing the turn
lanes a bit," he said.
Pastore reported that managers have planned
the work so that traffic tie-ups will be kept to a
minimum.
"There were originally two northbound and
two southbound lanes. So what we've done is we
have pushed them to the outside where it used
to be a wide shoulder," he explained, "Now
there's no longer a wide shoulder and traffic is
running on' the two outside lanes so that we can
do our median work."
Work began on the $1.3 million phase in


December of 2004 and could be complete by late
March or early April.
To date, Pastore said that his crews had not run
into any unexpected glitches.
The biggest problem has been drivers rubber-
necking to see what is going on.
"We put out the variable message signs to let
people know in advance what is happening," he
said.
He said that underground digging has not been
a problem for this phase of the project.
"We-really didn't have too much underground
work to do. We had a small underground pipe
connection and a new drainage structure, but
that's about it," he said.
An upcoming widening and resurfacing proj-
ect will stretch up U.S. 27 from Lake Isis to Polk
County line. Currently, that project is in the right
of way process.
Construction dates for that have not been
scheduled yet. Officials of the Florida
Department of Transportation said it could be a
couple more years before construction work
begins on that project.
Meanwhile, officials of the Florida
Department of Transportation continue to seek
liquidated damages from Better Roads for work it
did on a separate phase of the widening project.
Department of Transportation officials said
they were in "the early stages" of litigation. But
don't expect a settlement any time soon. State
officials predict it could take as long as five years
to resolve the dispute.

Seven-vehicle collision caused by semi


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Seven vehicles were damaged, at least three people and traffic was tied up for more than an hour
on U. S. 27 around 5 p.m. Saturday. Florida Highway Patrol troopers said a southbound semi-
truck hit at least one of the cars, starting the chain reaction accident in front of Lakeshore Mall in
Sebring. The E&L Trucking semitrailer reportedly was on its way from Lake Wales to Clewiston
to pick up a load of orange juice. Workers at the J&M Outlet sales, a shoe vendor set up at the
intersection of U.S. 27 and Sparrow Avenue saw the crash. 'Trucks drive through here every day,
run the red lights and just lay on their horn,' said Jerry Ruiz. 'They act like they don't care.'
Troopers did not have any names, the conditions on any of the injured or what if any -
charges might be filed as of press time.

Avon Park poised to buy


Sebring Ridge Utilities


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The city of
Avon Park is in the final stages
of acquiring the Sebring Ridge
Utilities. Council members will
consider the formal authoriza-
tion of purchasing the water
system when they meet
Monday night in regular ses-
sion.
If council agrees on the final
approval, the closing is set to
take place Tuesday afternoon.
Council members gave City
Manager C.B. Shirey the go-
ahead to begin final negotia-
tions with the owners in
August, following a public
hearing on the matter.
.The city has been steadily
Advancing on the acquisition
since May 2004, when the own-
ers of the utility company
approached the city about buy-
ing out the 950-customer water
system.
Owners are asking $1.8 mil-
lion with a payment plan of
$500,000 down then $250,000
annually at four percent inter-
est.
The buy-out will serve two
purposes. First, it will permit
the city to loop its water system
down U.S. 27 to Valerie
Boulevard, then back north up
Memorial Drive.
Secondly, some council
members have expressed the
opinion that the move would
"draw a line in the sand"
between Avon Park and
Sebring.

City officials decided to
move ahead in earnest after
hearing a report from Chastain
Skillman consultant Paul
Bizier.
He reported that the revenues
of the system appeared to out-
distance the cost of operation,
despite what he referred to as
"very informal records keep-
ing."
Bizier also told council
members that the water compa-
ny's machinery and meters
were old but appeared to be
functioning well.
Shirey estimated, that
because the city already has
meter reading and other person-
nel that the city could realize as
much as $80,000 annually from
the system as it currently exists.
But there might be additional
revenue. Bizier pointed out that
there had not been a rate
increase in the operation for a
decade.
It also appears that more cus-
tomers are waiting in the wings.
Residents nearby the system
might be looking forward to the


Cq/

v i .'


city taking over the operation.
Shirey has advised the coun-
cil he already has been
approached about the expan-
sion of the lines into other
neighborhoods.
At one time the city of
Sebring had tried to negotiate
for a similar purchase of the
operation.
That deal reportedly was for
$1.75 million. However, own-
ers also wanted the city to pick
up their corporate taxes on the
sale. Sebring officials balked at
that proviso, noting that such an
agreement would have driven
the price in excess of $2.5 mil-
lion.
That, in fact, wasmnot the first
time Sebring had tHied to pur-
chase the Sebring Ridge
Utilities. More than a decade
ago, the city had been working
on a deal that would have netted
both the Sebring Ridge Utilities
as well as the sewer system of
the Fairmount Mobile Estates.
Those talks never came to
fruition.

SEBRING First, it was
members of the CART racing
series that held their "spring
training" at the Sebring
International Raceway. Now,
the American Le Mans Series
racing teams will have their
own version of Florida training
when the International Motor
Sports Association and the
raceway host a four-day open
testing session.
Teams will have the full run
of the 3.72-mile circuit Jan. 31-
Feb. 3 in what has come to be
known as the Wheels Down
Winter Test.
Three of the four reigning
ALMS championship teams
will highlight nine of the com-
petitors that will put more than
a dozen cars on the track during
the session, which begins a
week from Monday.
Also slated to take to the his-
toric circuit is the Aston Martin
team. The entry of the DBR9
has caused one of the biggest
auto racing buzzes since
Bentley raced at Sebring two
years ago. ,,
Aston Martin first raced at
Sebring in 1953, when Hall of
Fame driver Caroll Shelby
piloted a DB3.
Although the testing session


actually is designed to help
teams prepare for the Mobil 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring, fans
who want to get a pre-season
glimpse of the teams will be
permitted inside.
Admission to the sessions
will be $10 per day with the
proceeds to go to the tsunami
relief fund.
Viewing will be allowed
from the Midway general
admission area, which includes
the front straight, viewing
berms at turns 3-5, the Gurney
Bend and the famous Hairpin.
Spectators will not be
allowed in the Paddock or
Green Park and no overnight
camping will be permitted.
Signed up for the session are
Champion Racing, Miracle
Motorsports, ACEMCO
Motorsports, Aston-Martin,
Alex Job Racing, BAM! Racing
and Panoz Motorsports.
Champion, who has part-
nered up with AudiSport North
America, will field two teams
which boast a half dozen former
,12 Hour winners. Also coming
for the session is Sebring's
LMP2 defending champ
Miracle motorsports with a new
Courage C65.
ACEMCO's Saleen and the
Aston Martin DBR9 will repre-
sent some of Sebring's GTI


competitors.
In the GT2 division, the
Panoz Esperante will test
alongside the BAM! Racing
Porsche and Alex Job Racing,
Sebring's 2004 GT2 champ,
will bring a pair of Porsches as
well.
The track already has hosted
some individual testing ses-
sions for the likes of Corvette,
Dyson Racing, Konrad
Motorsports, Panoz
Motorsports and the ACEMCO
Saleen team over the past two
months.
"We look forward to having
the teams from the ALMS at
Sebring," said Tres Stephenson,
president and general manager
of Sebring International
Raceway. "The Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring continues to
grow each year and having this
series-wide testing session six
weeks before race time is a sign
of that growth. The test will be
beneficial to everyone
involved."
Gates will be open each day
at 8:30 am and close at 5:30
p.m.
Tickets and additional infor-
mation are available through.

Raceway at 655-1442.

recording artists known for
their expertise on a variety of
stringed instruments.

Grape growers and wine guild choose 2005 winning wines


Al and Dora
Tarabori host sixth
annual judging
By BOB WALKER
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Fine
wines and epicurean foods
were served at the sixth annual
wine judging competition
sponsored by the Highlands
County Grape Growers
Association and the Highlands
County Winemakers Guild.
Master chef Al Tarabori and
his wife, Dora, hosted the event
Jan. 15 at their home and vine-
yard in Lake Placid.
Since the association's
inception in 1997, the county's
hobbyist winemakers have
honed their skills in the fine art
of winemaking.
Competition was keen for
the coveted medals for the best
wines. The group has even
sprained a federal and state
licensed winery, as Henscratch
Vineyard and Winery of Lake
Placid became Florida's 13th
licensed winery last year.
A great deal of effort is taken
at the annual judging featuring
wines from last year's harvest
to insure that the identity of the
winemaker is unknown so that
the wines are judged only on
their own merits.
Wines were judged in three
classes:
Class 1 Red wine
made with at least 90 percent of
its juice from Florida grown
grapes: Gold Medal Richard
Harlow; Silver Medal Bob
Walker; and Bronze Medal Al
Tarabori.
Class 2 White wine
made with at least 90 percent of
its juice from Florida grown
grapes: Gold Medal Elli
Million; and Silver Medal -
Roger Giller tied with Dan
Young.
Class 3 Wine made
from juices other than Class 1
or Class 2: Gold Medal Don
Johnson tied with Joe Picior;
and Silver Medal John
Leonard.
The Best of Show medal was
won by Don Johnson for the
wine that received the greatest
number of points regardless of
class. He presented an excellent
white wine fermented from a
concentrate of apricot juice.
The wine was described as hav-
ing a delicate, fruity character
and a good bouquet with a
well-balanced distinctive apri-
cot flavor hinting of vanilla and
toasted oak.
As Highlands hobbyist wine-
makers have become more
skilled with the use of their
computers they are producing
labels for their bottles that rival
commercial labels seen on

raise money.


Recreation,
particularly a
radio-controlled
car racing track,
will top the agenda
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners plan to
have their first strategic plan-
ning session Feb. 1.
So far, Commissioner
Barbara Stewart has spoken
with Tommy Todd of Glades
Electric Cooperative to see if he
will facilitate the event.
Previously, Todd facilitated a
planning session for the
Highlands County Industrial
Development Authority and
Economic Development


Commission. Feb. 1 is his earli-
est available'date.
Some of the matters commis-
sioners may discuss include
land development, infrastruc-
ture needs, school and recre-
ation facilities, zoning plans,
protecting natural resources,
and both directing and promot-
ing industry.
Commissioners were con-
cerned most about recreation.
They approved moving a radio-
controlled car racing track from
DeSoto City to the Avon Park
area after changes in the neigh-
borhood put residents at odds
with the racers. Stewart said the
county should prioritize what
facilities it needs, where they
should go and how much assis-
tance they should receive either
in funding or in-kind services.
She also suggested placing


priority on some clubs over oth-
ers based on how many people
are members, how many partic-
ipants and spectators they serve
and how much economic
impact they have.
Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius said
Tuesday that just that week, she
had received requests for fund-
ing an all-terrain vehicle track,
a dog park, sidewalks in a rural
subdivision, and cross-country
running tracks as part of a pro-
posed softball facility.
Jack Richie, a resident in Sun
'N Lake of Lake Placid, said an
ATV park is needed. Highlands
County Sheriff's Deputies are
busy each weekend, he said,
running down ATV users to
ticket them and get them off the
road right-of-ways.

A lesson in safety


Farm Service extends application


closing date for aquaculture


- --- -( -diugu- : _lrm -_ _
SUMMER FERRANTE/News-Sun
Teaching about being a paramedic, Doug Pifer (left) and EMS Director Rick Weigand talk about
their job to the Leadership Highlands class Thursday at the county's Emergency Operations
Center. The class is a nine-month program that requires students to visit a part of Highlands
County once a month.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Farm
Service Agency has extended
the application closing date for
aquaculture in Florida from
Sept. 1, 2004, to Jan. 31.
Aquaculture is covered by
the Noninsured Crop
Assistance Program (NAP)
administered by FSA. This
extension has been authorized
based on the fact that producers
were either unable to travel to
the county office due to debris
left from hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, or the
county office was closed on or
around the initial Sept. 1 dead-
line.
This extension is only for the
Aquaculture 2005 crop year.
Producers may file an applica-
tion for coverage and pay the
applicable service fee up until
Jan. 31, however coverage will
not begin until 30 days after the
application for coverage and
applicable service fee are
received in the administrative
county office. Only those disas-


ters that occur after the begin-
ning of the coverage period will
be eligible for loss. Loss will be
determined based on the num-
ber of inventory present imme-
diately before and after the dis-
aster.
NAP covers 50 percent of the
producer's expected production
at a payment rate equal to 55
percent of the crop's average
market price. Benefits are limit-
ed to $100,000 per crop year for
each participant.
Since the 1995 crop year,
FSA has offered NAP assis-
tance for non-insurable crops
each time a widespread cata-
strophic loss occurred due to
damaging weather. Availability
of NAP benefits will be based
on producers' individual crop
losses, rather than on losses
occurring in a large area. These
guaranteed benefits, subject to a
minimal administrative fee, will
provide risk protection during
the time when crops are most
vulnerable and will be individu-
alized based on the farmer's


ability to produce the crop.
NAP covers all non-insur-
able, commercially grown
crops produced for food and
fiber, including honey, turfgrass
sod, Christmas trees, seed crops
and aquaculture. Crops in
Highlands County that would
be eligible for NAP include
cantaloupe, cucumber, greens,
and watermelon.
To be eligible for assistance,
applicants must pay a nonre-
fundable administrative fee of
$100 per crop, per county.
Fees are capped at $300 per
county not to exceed $900 for
farmers with interests in multi-
ple counties.
Applicants are encouraged to
provide prior years' production
data to FSA to establish a docu-
mented yield history for loss
calculations and payments. To
be eligible for NAP, a farmer
must have risk in producing the
crop and must comply with a
conservation plan. The appli-
cant's gross income cannot
exceed $2 million.


Florida's Blood Centers continues to run low on blood


Special to the News-Sun
Every two seconds, someone
in the United States needs
blood. That amounts to approx-
imately 38,000 pints of blood
every day in the United States.
Despite advances in modern
medicine, there is no substitute
for human blood. Healthy vol-
unteer blood donors are the
only source.
Not surprisingly, most
Americans know little and think


less about donating blood;
almost 20 percent of non-
donors cite "never thought
about it" as the main reason for
not giving. Few people realize
that blood has a shelf life of
only 42 days, or that U.S. adults
are allowed to give blood every
two months (or 56 days). About
60 percent of the U.S. popula-
tion is eligible to donate blood,
but only 5 percent do.
This low figure translates


into frequent shortages in the
blood supply. At times, hospi-
tals have to postpone or cancel
procedures because they are
short on blood. Regular dona-
tions help keep hospitals pre-
pared.
This is the reason for the
ongoing need to donate:.
An accident victim can use
anywhere from four to more
than 100 units, depending on
the injury.

Cancer patients need blood
and blood products on an ongo-
ing basis while they undergo
chemotherapy and or radiation.
Open heart surgery uses an
average of six pints of red blood
cells and six units of platelets.
Premature babies often use
blood once a day until they are
strong enough to go home.
Bone marrow transplants
can use an average of 120 units
of platelets and 20 units of red
blood cells.
Sickle cell anemia patients
with complications from the
disease receive blood transfu-
sions every month.
Orthopedic surgery can
use between two and eight
units.
What can you do? Giving
blood is simple. The entire
process from registration
through donation takes about an
hour. You can donate one pint
of blood every 56 days (or eight
weeks) .- ^ip to 'i\ times. a
O0(


year.
Give blood regularly. The
basic requirements to be eligi-
ble to give blood areas follows:
be 17 or older,
weigh at least 110 pounds,
be in good health (blood
pressure and diabetes are OK),
and
meet other donor require-
ments.
Organize a blood drive with
your church or organization.
Stop by the branch, it really
needs help. Collections this


month has not met the demand
of local hospitals.
When this happens, the blood
center must bring the blood in
from outside sources. January is
usually the best collection
month, but not this year.
Stop by the Florida's Blood
Centers Highlands from 8 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Friday or 11
a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. For
details, call 382-4499 or visit

'Can Good'


hunt helps


the needy
By LINDSEY MURPHY
News-Sun
AVON PARK As Scott
King, youth pastor at First
Baptist Church, said "Ready,
Set, Go!," about 50 students
rushed to the doors, making
their way out into the communi-
ty.
To many, it may just seem
like another Saturday night in
Highlands County, but to those
on a mission, it was something
more.
As a part of the youth week-
end, Jan. 15-16, sponsored by
the church, the students
involved were ready to make a
difference for those in need.
The mission was simple: Find
various items on a list that was
given to four different teams.
These teams were composed of
students whose ages range from
middle school to college.
Yet the items on the list were
a bit more complex than anyone
would have thought. Items such
as "a new blanket in wrapper,"
"32 rolls of unopened toilet
paper," and "an unopened tarp"
were a little harder to find than
the ordinary soup and vegetable
cans. But, despite it all, each
team came out a winning suc-
cess.
The "Can Good Scavenger
Hunt", as it is formally called,
is the brain-child of the new
community outreach intern
Jenny Wells.
After Wells moved into this
county in the middle of hurri-
cane season, she saw a definite
need for the outreach of church-
es.
Wells teamed up with the
Church Service Center, off of
Main Street in Avon Park, com-
monly referred to as the old fire
station, to reach the need of this
community.
After the' fall season of
October to December, there
were about 60 families that
were helped by the church, in
which many of these individu-
als received food and housing
items. However, there was such
an influx of people still coming
into the church seeking need,
the First Baptist Church felt like
it needed to do something more.
And that they certainly did.
With the help of neighbors,
friends and the community, the
group of students united togeth-
er to raise about $1,200 worth

SEBRING All three sta-
tionary sites for the Jan. 27
homelessness tally have been
established.
The Highlands County
Coalition for the Homeless
Inc., in a partnership with more
than 105 community associa-
tions and businesses, will take a
count on Thursday, Jan. 27, of
all Highlands County residents
who are either homeless or
have been. displaced by any of
the hurricanes that hit the coun-
ty this year.
To help census takers, the
coalition has picked three sta-
tionary sites where the home-
less may come to be counted:
In Avon Park, homeless

at 1410 W. Avon Blvd.
In Sebring, homeless may
go to the Wal-Mart parking lot
at 3525 U.S. 27 North.
In Lake Placid, homeless
may go to Manna Ministries at
416 Kent Ave.

LINDSEY MURPHY/News-Sun
Scott King of First Baptist Church in Avon Park looks over the

and collected by students in the area. The church raised about $1200
worth of items to help the community in need.


of canned goods and home sup-
plies.
King said, "The community
was so giving."
The articles collected will be
going to the Church Service
Center in the hopes of helping
those affected by flood, fire,
and the upcoming hurricane
season of 2005.


"It was amazing," Wells said
as she looked around the recre-
ation center filled with donated
items.

New Holiday Inn Express



is on track to go on line


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It was in
January 2003 when plans were
initially unveiled for a new
Holiday Inn Express & Suites
to be built on U.S. 27 just north
of the Sebring city limits.
On March 5, 2004, officials
gathered at the site to officially
break ground for the project.
Now it appears that the open-
ing of the hotel is just around
the corner.
"Our' goal is to be open in
time for the races," said Punit
Shah, who has overseen con-
struction for the Liberty Group
of Companies.
At this point it appears they
may well meet that deadline.
Shah said they are almost
ready for the final inspections
of the building and at the cur-
rent rate, they could have their
first guest in the house by Feb.
13.
Developer Raxit Shah has
been in Sebring for the past few
days making the final prepara-
tions for the start of business.
He said the biggest holdup at
this point is the fact that the
road to the hotel is not yet fin-

wall off the walls, dry it out and
spray it with an agent to destroy
it," he said.
The Florida Home Builders
Association and the Home
Builders Association of Metro
Orlando hired forensic engi-
neer Joseph Lstiburek to study
the problem.
In his report, Lstiburek
wrote. "A lot of these (construc-
tionf) practices may not have
been the greatest practices, but
they did the job until they were
overwhelmed."
IMany builders have refused
to fix the water-damaged
homes, claiming the\ ere the

hee. been unable to force


ished.
"We can't get the Holiday
Inn to come out and inspect the
work until the road is done," he
said.
Shah said the hold up seems
to be that the contractor is not
able to get the supplies of
asphalt he needs to do the work.
Shah's son Punit said it
seemed that the last few weeks
have been the most difficult.
Furniture, computers and
other equipment are being
installed in the building in
preparation for the ribbon cut-
ting.
The $4 million facility will
have 66 rooms and is. the first
project in Florida for Raxit
Shah, who has other such hold-
ings in Ohio, Michigan and
Tennessee.
Shah said the site just north
of the Whispering Pines mobile
home community was selected
following "extensive analysis,"
citing the local need and the
amount of traffic on U.S. 27.
"This is going to enhance
business in the community,"
Shah promised when the proj-
ect first was unveiled.
The structure, is a prototype


builders to fix the damage
because the causes of the water
seepage currently aren't cov-
ered by the state's building
code.
Homebuilders officials
would like to see a construction
based solution. To help deal
with large amounts of rain,
Lstiburek recommended that
ledges be added at the base of
masonry wall assemblies to
allow excessive water to drain
out the walls.
He also suggested a separa-
tion be required between a stuc-
co coating and interior water-
resistant barriers to allow a suf-
ficient drainage path and that
builders be allowed to construct
unvented roofs.
He also soi;ested specifica-
tions. rdin-s-iand Tlsung melh-

resistant barriers, such as house


for Holiday Inn the nation's
largest hotel chain with all
the amenities included in the
building.
"It will be the first hotel in
the area with the suites con-
cept," he said.
In fact there will be 15 suites,
with some of them to be
themed.
Shah said his facility will
feature 10-15 whirlpools, more
than any other hotel in the area.
Raxit Shah has been here
over the past few days, looking
to hire personnel to operate the
new facility.
"We have been very fortu-
nate in that regard. We should
have the general manager on
board by next week," he said.
There is a $700,000
Community Development
Block Grant which has helped
to underwrite the project. That
money was used to pay for
administration, engineering and
infrastructure.
The property also has been
annexed into the city of
Sebring.
This will be the fifth Holiday
Inn for Shah's Liberty Group of
Companies.


wraps and tar paper, and that
windows and doors be tested
for how they handle water. The
costs of implementing the rec-
ommendations should be mini-
mal, the associations said.
As to what can be done
remains to be seen. Both the
Florida Building Commission
and the state Legislature can
make changes to the building
code independently of each
other.
The home builder associa-
tions reportedly plan to encour-
age its members to implement
some of the recommendations
made in the report, even before
debate takes place on whether
they should be incorporated
into the staje buildi- de .

Wildstein said he has an
aggressive construction plan
that could put sales and service
personnel in the building by late
summer.
"We're hoping for July or
possibly August," he said.
Originally, Wildstein pulled a
marketing coup when he dualed
the Nissan and Toyota franchis-
es together in one building.
"It's been good, it has given
the customer a chance to com-
pare but we came to realize that
a Nissan buyer is a Nissan
buyer and a Toyota customer is
really a Toyota customer," he
said.
The move will also make
space for Toyota's new Scion
brand at the existing
Toyota/Nissan facility on U.S.

"We'll take the former

Currently, crews are gutting
the Chrysler/Jeep/Kia store on
U.S. 27 south of Sebring and
are doing image construction. A
new facade, improvements and
remodeling currently is under-
way at the Chevrolet/Cadillac
store.
Wildstein said some of the
construction is the result of
damage caused by the hurri-
canes, while other parts of the
work already had been sched-
uled.
"The hurricanes actually
accelerated some of the things
we were going to do anyway,"
he said. "They pushed them up
on the front burner.
While improvements to the
buildings and the certification
and training of staff members
continues. At the end of the day,
said Wildstein, there was only
one goal.
"All I want to do is keep
focusing on taking care of the
customer and making our sales
and,service experience the best
they can be," he said. ,
The Alan Jay Automotive
Network currently consists of a

Kindergarten
kids can be very
demanding
Teaching kindergarten at
Lake Placid Elementary
School last Tuesday was the
most exhausting fun I've had
in a long time, also the most
demanding. Just sitting down
in those tiny chairs, or more to
the point, getting out of them
was a major challenge (my
knees popped so loud you
could hear them down the
hall).
Then there was the problem
of how to react when one little
boy, sweatshirt hood pulled
over his head, broke out in
heart rending sobs because I
hadn't called on him to write
the letter G on the board.
I have to confess, I'm a
softy. The sight of a child in
tears is enough to choke me
up. Fortunately, Sherri Henley,
the class' experienced teacher,
knew just how to handle the
situation. She didn't fuss, as I
was going to do, but let him
be. Sure enough, in no time at
all the storm had passed and
he was smiling again.
Then there were the songs
we sang keep in mind, they
shut the water off at my house
when I sing in the shower -
the morning song, the letter
song, and the vowel song.
Most embarrassing, it turned
out I wasn't up on my vowel
sounds and mixed up the I and
the E.
You can't be afraid to make
a fool of yourself in kinder-

Kindergarten:

The toughest job a

teacher will ever love
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Slunl
LAKE PLACID
teaching kindergarten requires stamina, skill and strategy.
The day starts at 7:30 a.m. and there's no stopping until 3
p.m.
A person will see teachers recording grades while eating lunch,
or writing grants, or making flash cards, or calling parents, or read-
ing articles on new techniques.
Even after school many teachers are still hard at work, taking
papers home to correct, or making plans for future lessons, or
thinking about how to help a child understand numbers.
Sherri Henley, a kindergarten teacher at Lake Placid Elementary
School, taught first grade for five years, took two years off when
she had a baby, and is now in her second year of teaching kinder-
garten. She said a person has to have eyes in the back of their head,
and that the best moments are when something clicks for a student.
She calls it an ..Ia" moment.
To be a kindergarten teacher a person has to be an expert on
child development and know how to talk about complex abstrac-
tions in simple concrete ways.
A person will need know how to use a computer, read graphs
and charts, understand assessments, and deal with difficult or
angry parents.
A person will need to know the rules for dozens of games, and
the words and tunes to hundreds of songs. A person will have to be
ready to explain where the rain comes from, or why people call a
goat a goat, or how a telephone works, or who fixes the holes in a
street.
A person will need to know when to be patient and when to
push; when to laugh and when to be stern; when children are real-
ly sick, and when they just don't want to go outside that day.
A person will need to know how to scavenge, adapt and create.
A person will have to be ready to do things over and over and
over; or be ready to take advantage of a brief, unexpected moment.
A person will have to be able to clean animal cages, sew buttons,
wipe runny noses and fix broken toys.
AXperson will have to be a professional, yet sit on the floor.
And a person can't take offense when a child tells them they
have yellow teeth. And a person can't laugh-when a child makes a
mistake except sometimes, so they will have to be wise enough
to know when it's OK.
A person can't be afraid to act silly or dance, or admit a mistake,
or lose hope that a child can learn, or be above asking for help.
In short, teaching kindergarten is as challenging, as complicat-
ed, as rewarding as work can get.
First time teachers earn a salary of $30,000 a year, providing
they have at least a bachelor's degree, professional certification,

This Year
I Give Thanks
For My Life!

By:
R. Donald
Tomasik


I wanted to write and let you
knowthat I am etemally 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 5 1/2 centi-
meter aortic aneurysm. I was ableto
take my test results to 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
he smiled and said, 'those Healthfair
screenings probably saved 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 overthe 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!


Echocardiogram

Ultrasound Test


Electrocardiogram

(EKG) Test



Hardening of the Arteries

(ASI) Test



ALL 3 TESTS

SEchocardiogram is a video ultrasound of the
heart. It may detect enlargement of the heart,
valve abnormalities, blood clots and tumors.



t EKG may detect ischemia, silent heart attack
and atrial fibrillation. EKG provides a picture
of the electrical activity of the heart.



SHardened arteries cause the heart to work
harder,which leadstovasculardisease.ASI test
shows the degree of hardening of arteries.



V These cardiac tests are painless and non-
invasive. Their combined cost is more than
$1,300 at most hospitals.


Stroke& Aneurysm Prevention Package

Stroke/Carotid Artery Many strokes are associated with blockage
Stro artid Artey in the carotid arteries that may be detect

UltrasoundTest with an ultrasound.


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!

Sebring musician turns into


director of his own studio A


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING From a middle school student
who became fascinated with the trombone to a
musician who spent 15 years performing with
bands, Rick Brown is making a go at a career he
feels suited for running his own recording stu-
dio.
Burn Studios can do "just about anything,"
Brown said, when it comes to recording music.
The studio has a full range of Digital Processing
System equipment and can record up to 128
tracks.
"Even if you're a karaoke singer, if you have
your own CD, anything that you want to do, you
can do it here," Brown said. "Even if you don't
have your own instruments, I have drums, gui-
tars, amps, basses, everything. Everything is self-
contained here to do about everything you'd want
to do with music."
The studio evolved out of his own interests.
After learning the trumpet as a teenager, Brown
taught himself how to play the drums, saxophone
and guitar.
"I basically fooled around with every instru-
ment I can get my hands on," he said.
Then, about five years ago, he started buying
recording equipment so that he could record him-
self and the bands he was performing with.
Once he got good at it, friends began suggest-
ing that he start recording music for a living.
"I recorded a few bands here and there, bought
some more equipment, bought a different build-
ing, and one thing led to another," Brown said.
"This is what I'm doing with my life now."
Primarily, Brown has been focusing on record-
ing music, although he wants to branch out into
scoring music and doing voice-overs for com-
mercials. He and a friend also are collaborating to
make hip-hop beats for rap singers.
"We're going to try to sell those and find rap-
persto come in and rap on them," Brown said.


KIDS
Continued from 13A
garten. By which I mean, you
have to be willing to act like a
child. For example, after read-
ing the story of "The Hungry
Goat," the children were rest-
less. "It's time for the wiggle
dance," Henley cried, and we
all bounced and wiggled with

much more advanced kinder-
garten is now, from 1986 whem
I taught it in New York City -
can still remember my first da;
on that job (I had taught ninth
and fifth grades before then). I
had picked up my students in
the assembly area, and
marched them up to our class-
room, everything under con-
trol. Then at the door I said,
"All right boys and girls, hang
up your coats and take a seat."
An hour later I was still try-
ing to restore order; one little
girl hysterical in a comer
because she didn't know how
to unbutton her coat.
Back then the children took

their colors, and by the end of


In the meantime, he's recorded local bands
such as Nar Shadda and A Written Death Wish as
well as One Dub Liners from Orlando and a band
from Tampa.
Brown charges a flat fee of $20 an hour for his
services and offers package deals that provide 20
hours for $300 or 40 hours for $600.
Because studio time can become expensive,
Brown advised musicians to be well prepared to
record. That can involve putting all new strings
on their instruments and drum heads on their
drums, and being able to play their pieces without
a hitch.
"The main thing I can't stress enough is for a
band to be tight," Brown said. "The studio is the
last place to come in and work things out,
because that runs into time and time runs into
money. You can't be in here trying to write music
in the studio."
The process begins by recording one track at a
time drums first, then bass, then vocals or
whatever the bands feel comfortable doing.
How much time the recording takes will
depend on the skills of the musicians and the abil-
ity for them to get through their track, Brown
said.
"I had a band come in here and do a four-song
demo in about eight hours," Brown said.
From there, the finished product should be
available in two to three days, Brown said.
"I put about four hours into each song when I
sit and mix a song down," he said. "It's a pretty
lengthy process."
Burn Studios also has a Web site at
http://iwww.burnstudios.coin. The site offers MP3
files of bands he has recorded, which Internet
users can download for free, as well as a sam-
pling of his hip-hop beats, a listing of the equip-
ment he works with and other information.
Burn Studios is at 3809 Wild Violet Ave. (for-
merly Violet) in'Lake Sebring Estates. For
details, call Brown at 385-8814.

Jacaranda is the Tree of Flowers


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash From the Past of Aug. 3,
1937.
With a girth of approximate-
ly 16 feet three feet above its
base and a height of about 60
feet, the towering jacaranda tree
in the yard of the Mann home
on Verona avenue, is one of the
tree wonders of this section of
the state. In fact, it is said by
many who have seen large
jacaranda trees to be the largest
they have seen anywhere in
Florida.
There was a large jacaranda
tree where the Jacaranda hotel
now stands, but residents who
remember it say it was not quite
so large as the tree at the home
of Claire Mann, on Mrs.
Harriett P. Smith's property.
This spring the jacaranda tree
was a mass of light blue
blooms, which might be seen
for a long distance, towering
above the surrounding trees in
that community. H. E. Coy, who


once owned the
property, states that
the jacaranda was
probably planted in
1890 or a year or so
previous to that time, P
and must be a least
41 years old. Not
even the jacaranda trees in
Highlands Hammock, noted for
its giant trees, compare with the
jacaranda tree on the Smith
property.
The jacaranda tree on the
King property east of Lake
Verona, may be seen from the
center of the city, looking east
out of the mall. It has received
the admiration of many visitors,
as well as town people.

In the front yard of the home
of Louis R. Evers, on East State
street, is a magnificent speci-
men of the jacaranda, much'
more shapely in form than the
tree on Mrs. Smith's property,
which has been damaged by
storm and fires, or the tree on
the King property, which was
injured by the hurricane. The


Evers jacaranda is
about 10 feet in cir-
cumference at the
I, base, is about 30
feet high and has a
spread of 60 feet or
more. Its branches
extend over the
front porch on one side and
partly across the road on the
other side. It covers nearly the
whole of the front yard. The
tree is peculiar in the fact that it
has profuse blooms in season
on the south side and scarcely
any bloom on the north side of
the tree. While its leaves bear
great resemblance to those of
the royal poinciana, the latter
has a deep crimson bloom and
is not related to the jacaranda.
In April and May the jacaran-
da is most beautiful with its
canopy of rich, blue panicles
and oval leaves. The trees in the
Mall and in some private
grounds are Jacaranda ovalifo-
lia. There is another variety of
the jacaranda in the Mall that
bears a bloom of deep blue,
which is a novelty here. It is


known as the Jacaranda cuspid-
folia. A resident of Avon Park,
while on a visit in Punta Gorda,
saw one of these trees in full
bloom at the home of Mrs.
Marian McAdow, whose place
is noted for its many rare and
beautiful plants and trees. A
result of seeing this tree was
that a similar one was pur-
chased for the Mall. The
Jacaranda cuspidfolia may be
seen in the Mall section just
south of the Seaboard station.

On the Sebring road at the
turn toward Lake Jackson may
be seen two symmetrically
beautiful jacarandas, but they
do not surpass in beauty the one
tree at the Evers home.

The Mall has a row of young
jacaranda trees, a mile in
length, some of which were in
bloom this year. When full
grown these trees will show a
mass of blue blooms towering
above other trees in the Mall,
and will be a vision for the
tourist long to be remembered.


Thousands prepare for

It all needs a
closer look
Editor:
The recent "guest column"
(Gabriel Read, News-Sun, Jan.
19) took me back to my college
days in the '30s when Orwell's
"1984" was required reading in
every college and university in
America. This was also the era
of guest speakers promoting
new philosophies and of com-
munist so-called "witch-
hunts." All followed by "Brave
New World."
From there we have seen the
rise of existentialism, which is
now rampant in elite universi-
ties and the leading philosophy
of the majority of educators as
a result of their experience in
today's teacher training institu-
tions. Existentialism began as a
philosophy influenced by the
writings of Soren Kierkegaard,
which set the stage and exerted
a lasting influence on society
by denying all forms of organ-
ized religion. It became the
basis of the current philosophy
of "now."
It. denies all authority,
accepts no blame, gives no
excuses, and has no responsi-
bility. This philosophy is now
exhibited by much of the popu-
lation. It is found in teenage
pregnancies, divorce courts, the
media, the judicial system and
our politics. It is rampant in our
educational system from the
ultra-liberal professors in Ivy
League and West Coast univer-
sities as copied throughout
teacher training colleges and
reflected in our public schools.
When we have our great uni-
versities such as Harvard
reserving a "chair" for Noam
Chomsky, who apologized for
the genocide of the Kmer
Rouge and compares Castro's
Cuba favorably to the United
States yet is the world's most
cited author and scholar, and
the University of
Massachusetts naming its
library after W. E. B. Dubois
who preferred Nazi Germany
and Imperial Japan to the
United States and finally
renounced his U. S. citizenship,
we should take a closer look at
what comes out of those insti-
tutions.
As a member of the "greatest
generation" it is disturbing to
see the direction of this philos-
ophy. It is to be hoped that
morality and responsibility will
regain what has been lost in the
post-VietNam and current civil
rights activist era.
I doubt very seriously that
the current trend in our United
States will result in fascism.
However the enemy of fascism
is socialism and we are moving
ever closer to socialism as
practiced in our European
friends (?).
The problem is not that Big
Business will take over and
become "Big Brother" but that
socialism will become "Big
Brother" and dole out our daily
bread to the point we have no
personal ambition or pride and


wait for our daily hand-out
from the government.

Benson will be
missed by many
Editor:
We will miss him.
Sebring, Highlands County
and mankind has lost a great
man.
I have known Bro. Joe
Benson for many, many years. I
have never known him to be
anything but a caring, compas-
sionate human being.
It was because of him,
through his testimony of God's
goodness and grace that I, after
many years of running from
God's call to preach, surren-
dered to preach.
I watched his life and head
his from the heart words and
knew that he "walked with
Jesus."
His dedication to visit the
hospitals (everyday), visiting
shut-in people, is nearly impos-
sible to duplicate.
There have been some great
folks who have lived and
served, but none greater than
Rev. Joe Benson. I hope I can
serve and-live like him.
We will miss him.-

Athletes give
back to school
Editor:
Jesse Ewing and Tyson
Kahler finished in second place
in the women's and men's 5K,
(Gala 5K) respectively, held at
Florida Hospital in November.
With the second place finish-
es, a prize of $100 was award-
ed to each runner but according
to Florida High School
(FHSAA) they were not
allowed to accept the money


because it would jeopardize
their amateur status.
Both Jesse and Tyson agreed
to donate the money to Walker
Memorial to purchase new run-
ning shorts for the track and
cross country teams. We
received the check from
Florida Hospital last Friday.
We are proud to have these
two fine athletes and young
people at our school!

'News-Sun'
does great job
Editor:
Hats off to you and your
wonderful family at the News-
Sun!
You all did such an amazing
job on the articles in the Senior
Scene for the Sun Room Senior
Center Inc. Thank you from our
heart for this endeavor. We also
want to thank your family there
at the News-Sun including
Cindy Marshall (night/week-
end editor and Senior Scene
coordinator) and Larry Levey
(correspondent and Senior
Scene writer) for their out-
standing work. Larry was so
adamant to get all the facts cor-
rect so that the information was
accurate. His work on the arti-
cles was excellent.
The articles provided our
community with knowledge of
our services and we have
received many calls from
prospective patients and also a
call from a retired physician
who would like to volunteer
some of his time to our clinic.
As you can see, your work is
producing such wonderful
fruit.
Again, thank you for your
support of the Sun Room
Senior Center, Inc.
Deborah J. McCoy

cians tattoo every special inter-
est that they work for on their
foreheads. If we threaten to do it
with very sharp needles, maybe
they will think twice before they
cater to too many of them.


Not too long ago, Don and I
were strolling in a mall out of
town, window-shopping and
chatting. In our wanderings, we
came across one of those glass
boxes that sometimes contain a
map of the mall but more often
displays some sort of advertis-
ing. I have noticed the chance of
one of these boxes containing
the mall directory goes down
the more badly I need to find the
directory.
Anyway, this particular case
had an ad that showed a heroic
looking guy or gal (I can't
remember which) swinging into
some sort of action. On the bot-
tom of the ad appeared the word-
"SKECHERS."
"What is that?" Don asked.
"I've seen that in our mall too. Is
it a movie?"
I didn't think so. As we
walked past the case we puzzled
over what exactly was being
advertised. This week I made a
trip to Lakeshore Mall and
examined the ad closely. It final-
ly occurred to me after studying
the ad that it was selling a brand
of shoe. I still wasn't totally sure
about my guess, so I looked up
the strange name on the
Internet and sure enough, it's a
shoe.
Now I am a columnist, not an
advertiser, but it seems to me if
you make the customer work as
hard as I did to figure out what
you are advertising there is
something wrong with your
method.
It's not enough that advertis-
ing exists almost everywhere
you go these days. Now a young
man named Andrew Fletcher
wants to auction off his forehead
as ad space for 30 days. He says
he wants the money for college.
Last I heard he had gotten an
offer for $30,000.
As I think about it, what can
you advertise on a forehead?
Most people's foreheads aren't
that big. I'm assuming the ad
will be large enough to see with-
out getting into Fletcher's per-
sonal space, but what can they
put there, maybe one word? I
wonder if the "SKECHERS" peo-
ple are in the running (pun
intended) for this space?
Actually, I could tolerate
someone using their forehead
for advertising since if I don't
want to see it I just don't look at
them. The same cannot be said
of the increasing practice of put-
ting ads before movies thpse
days.
You know what I'm talking.
about. You get into the theatre,
settle down, prepare to relax -
and there you sit, a captive audi-
ence while some company
relentlessly flashes their product
in your face. Because you are
captive, I suspect they don't
worry too much about the quali-
ty of these ads, because in my
humble opinion some of them
are very bad.
That's why a news story out of
Connecticut got my attention. A
state representative wants to
have legislation that will require
movie theatres in the state to
post the actual start time of the
film. He says not knowing the
real time takes away freedom of
choice.
The legislation is tempting to
me, since I really do hate the
ads. I have vowed not to buy cer-
tain products because the ads I
have seen for them at the movies
are so bad I don't want to
encourage them. Since I am not
a fan of big government, howev-
er, I figure I have to look for
another solution.
Ill tell you one place I would
love to see advertising:
Congress. Just imagine this.
Senator So-and-So gets up and
makes an impassioned speech
for something like making the
lima bean our national veg-
etable. On a screen visible to the
public there would be a list of
every special interest that paid
for that speech, such as The
Lima Bean Growers of America.
That way they get some adver-
tising, and we know who's buy-
ing our politicians.
Or maybe we should take
Fletcher's idea and have.politi-











We are the world's most compassionate nation How second terms fail


Not long after the
terrible Asian tsuna-
mi, some started
wondering: might
America's generosity
win the world's
approval?
Don't they see?
We're Americans!
Americans wish
good for mankind, POLI
and labor in its name. NOTI
We give generously.
From offering plates,
t__ LoWELL
corporate coffers,
and personal bank
accounts has come more than
$200 million, and growing
daily. Our government has pro-
vided an additional $350 mil-
lion. That donation will
increase too.
We're not war mongerers,
oil hungry, or hateful of other
faiths. We relish our role as the
world's most compassionate
nation. Now is our chance to
prove it! Can't they see our
goodness and love us for it?
Won't this aid curb the grow-
ing anti-American sentiment?
These are tempting ambi-
tions, indeed. I have my doubts
first about how realistic they
are, but more importantly how
important they are in the
grander scheme of world'
events and morality.
Let's identify the situation
for what it is: The Muslim
world suffered the worst of this
tsunami. The Muslim world
harbors sentiment toward
America that ranges from mis-
trust to outright hatred.
Therefore, many thought that
this was President Bush's
chance to prove to the world
that they should love us and
that he doesn't hate Muslims
after all.

First, I wonder if
they can literally
hear about what
America and the
S Western world is
doing to ease their
suffering and
restore their lives.
Their media is
less than eager to
TICAL report American
good deeds. One
BOOK report alleged that
the United States
*BAKER tested a nuclear
weapon in the
Indian Ocean, causing the
earthquake that caused the
tsunami. If they are going to
report that we caused it, why
even bother to report that we
are trying to fix it?
Does the Muslim world
know how moved the rest of
the world is at their plight? Do
they know that our churches
are compelled to raise money
that will help rebuild their
mosques? I don't think their
media will ever provide a fair
portrait of what we will do for
their suffering people.
Media bias aside, can they
even know? Our state was just
shelled by four major hurri-
canes, the damage from which
pales .in comparison to that in
Asia. How interested were
you in the affairs of far-off
countries when you were with-
out power, or shelter, or even
much hope?
Of course we rightly hope
that acts of kindness will touch
lives and shatter prejudices.
Our men and women in uni-
form are serving with distinc-
tion in the ravaged areas. It
will do the world some good to
see that our helicopters are
used more often to bring relief


than military action. I do
believe such testimony can
change hearts. So too can the
many people of faith who have
traveled there and serve with
their own hands.
But two more fundamental
errors pervade our hope that
they will like us because of our
aid. First, gifts should not
come attached with such
expectations. We call them
gifts for a reason. Second,
America has done quite
enough to have earned the
respect of the world prior to
this catastrophe. This is not the
first time America has provid-
ed compassionate leadership
and aid, nor will it be the last.
Many of us have been
taught since we were young
that when we give, we should
not let the left hand know what
the right is doing. There is
virtue in giving freely and lov-
ing unconditionally. Our busi-
ness is alleviating suffering.
Appreciation is their business
alone. To even talk about aid in
terms of what it might get us,
as much of the media has done,
violates the sanctity of gen-
erosity.
So for once, let's not politi-
cize this. Let's not give a
moment of thought to how our
policy in Iraq can be affected
by the money we raise for
Indonesia. Let's not worry
about how much other nations
are giving, or not giving. Let's
just give.
There are so many reasons
to give. At this writing,
Indonesia has issued a report
that it alone may have suffered
210,000 casualties, which
would put the world total at
272,000. One report realisti-
cally estimates that 100,000


more may die due to malaria
alone.
So many zeros make it hard
to compute, don't they? Can
we even fathom a disaster that
could possibly claim more
than 100 times more lives than
our own most horrifying expe-
rience on September 11?
Of course comparing those
events is tenuous. One is a
force of nature, the other an act
of murder. But grief is a con-
stant, as is rehabilitation from
such trauma.
Or if you prefer, imagine if
the entire population of
Highlands County was no
more. Then multiply it times
three.
How can an isolated village
in Indonesia that lost more
than 90 percent of its women
(and nearly 80 percent of its
men) ever recover? How can
'they rebuild on the shores of
seas that once provided their
way of life, but now surely
only represent death?
These people don't need a
politically motivated handout.
They are victims in need of
love. I don't care which God
they worship or what they
think of our Western culture.
The Lord so many of us
believe in says that the world
will know us by our love. It's
time to love our neighbors like
we'd like to be loved our-
selves, even if these neighbors
happen to live half a. world
away.

Presidential second
terms usually end in fail- MORI
ure. Since 1900, only
Teddy Roosevelt could MO
boast of a second term .
that was as good or better Dick
than his first.
Woodrow Wilson lost
Congress, and then couldn't bring
America into the League of
Nations. FDR, whose third term
was a success, failed to pass any-
thing in his second after he alien-
ated Congress by trying to pack
the Supreme Court and purge
recalcitrant Democrats. Harry
Truman's popularity plunged
over Korea, as Lyndon Johnson's
did over Vietnam. Ike had two
recessions and a hospitalization.
Richard Nixon resigned. Ronald
Reagan had Iran-Contra, and Bill
Clinton was impeached.
The reasons for second-term
failure are pretty much the same:
Presidents generally do what they
are good at in their first four
years, then spend their second
term responding to the agendas
imposed upon them by events.
Plus, re-election itself tends to
encourage a spirit of hubris -
even as top staff typically depart
in search of lucrative jobs, leav-
ing second stringers in charge.
But President Bush has gotten
off to 'a very good start in the
weeks since Election Day.
Palestine is lurching toward
peace. North Korea seems likely
to return to six-power talks. Iraq
will hold an election, with turnout
likely exceeding our own.
Ukraine has opted for democracy.
And the tsunami has kindled a
global spirit of cooperation and
unity unlike anything since 9/11.
But Bush has clearly signaled
that he will not devote the next
four years as he has the past
three exclusively to fighting


the War on Terror. While
FROM not planning to let up
the pressure on our ene-
IRIS mies. he plans to tackle
the two most difficult
lorris tasks in American poli-
- tics: Social Security and
income-tax reform.
Only Reagan succeeded in the lat-
ter: nobody has ever done both.
President Bush's hope of suc-
cess in these daunting challenges
depends on an absence of airo-
gance and hubris and a willing-
ness to recognize the limits of
power.
Bush won't pull off Social
Security reform if he bases his
plan only on privatization and
claims that simply letting individ-
uals invest a portion of their tax
payments will solve the system's
problems. Americans won't buy
it, and Bush will be accused of
borrowing his way into disaster if
he diverts Social Security rev-
enues without any offset in cuts.
But what benefit cuts would be
sufficiently acceptable to a wary
public? Here, I believe, the
answer is to link retirement age to
life expectancy. As we begin to
live regularly into our 90s, the age
to which we are expected to work
should be raised. The government
should be willing to subsidize
retirement, not an entire second
life.
In moving toward a flat tax to
replace, the current graduated
income tax, Bush has to take care
to preserve the deductions on
which today's system is based.
But if the flat tax is a voluntary
option, allowing people either to
pay it and claim no offsets or to
itemize and pay under the old tax
rules, the legislation will likely go
down easily.
Nobody said the job was easy.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Jan. 21, 2000: New Lake
Placid baseball coach Jason
Murray quit before con-
ducting his first practice
with the Dragons. Murray,
who was hired in August of
1999, left to take a college
job in South Carolina. Josh
Zahller, who was supposed
to be Murray's assistant,
was later named head
coach.

15 Years Ago
Jan. 22, 1990: Tom Smith
scored a career-high 43
points to help Avon Park
overcome 11 successful 3-
point shots by Haines City
six of them from Richie
Linder for an 87-82 vic-
tory.

'Small things' cost


Red Devils in defeat
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The Hardee Wildcats seem to have
District 10-3A pretty much figured out.
Friday night's 51-49 win at Avon Park put the Wildcats'
overall record at just 10-8, but gave them a sparkling 5-1
mark against district foes, putting them in good position
for a high seed in the district tournament.
"No matter what the situation is, district
Hardee games are always tough," Hardee coach
1 Vance Dickey said. "We're just glad to get
this one. That was a wild game. We're just
Avon Park happy to get out of here with a win."
9 A While the Wildcats left happy, the Devils
49 were left wondering what might have been if
Up Next they had been able to cut out just a few of the
At Mulberry many mistakes they made throughout the
on Tuesday night, like the seven turnovers in 10 posses-
sions in the second quarter that allowed
Hardee to take a big lead and the bad inbound pass in the
final minute that led to Weston Palmer making one of two
free throws with 25 seconds left to put the Wildcats up by
their final margin of victory.
"We really gave a good effort tonight and I'm really
pleased with that, but we've got to limit our mistakes,"
Avon Park coach Eric Zwayer said. "I told them that if

Mulberry soars

past Lake Placid
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID Lake Placid head
coach Steve Young could see it coming.
Young has regarded Mulberry as the class
of District 10-3A all year long, and when the
visiting Panthers jumped out to an early 10-
2 lead, the Green Dragons
could do little to respond in a Mulberry
78-53 loss. 7R
"We didn't get off to a real
good start. We struggled from Lake Placid
the very beginning," Young 5
said. "You do that against a 3
team that's first in the district, Up Next
you're in for a long night." At Frostproof
The Panthers (7-8, 5-1 in onTuesday
the district) put on an acrobat-
ic show, as Antwan Harris took to the air for
three dazzling dunks while juniors Josh
Dontone and Tim London sliced through the
Green Dragon defenders.
"They have good speed. They're very
athletic," Young said. "They're not really

A grand finale for Streaks


Sebring stuns unbeaten Frostproof in regular-season capper


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Coming into
Friday night's match with pre-
viously unbeaten Frostproof,
Sebring head coach Steve
Ashley was just hoping his
team would play well and gain
some momentum for- next
week's district tournament.
There certainly was no way
he could have anticipated just
how well the Blue Streaks

would play, especially
,the acrobatic saves by
freshman goalkeeper
Rebekah Secory, which
ultimately helped Sebring
hold on to stun
Frostproof, 2-1.
"I think if we, had to
give out a MVP award
for this game, it would be
her," Ashley said of
Secory. "Some of the


things you see out of her are
tremendous. She plays like she
has more experience than a
freshman. I'm happy she's just
a freshman."
Secory, who made a half-
dozen remarkable saves to rob
the Bulldogs of what appeared
to be sure goals, admitted after
the match that she did in fact
have some added incentive to
play well.
"Jessica's really been a big
inspiration for me, so I didn't


Senate head,

Marlins chief

trade gaffes
So when a National League
team plays host to the Marlins
this year, can they be con-
demned for harboring terror-
ists?
Apparently, according to
state Senate President Tom
Lee, a Republican from
,Brandon, they can be. In
response to an effort by
Marlins President David
Samson to receive $60 million
in state funding for a new sta-
dium, Lee made some rather
direct comments to the
Associated Press.
"I thought that we already
appropriated money to help


want her to lose her last home
game," Secory said, referring to
standout senior defender Jessica
Bloemsma.
All the scoring happened in
the first half and Sebring's
defenre ,laved rt,'peatei
Bulldog charges and scoring
opportunities in the second half
to end the regular season posi-
tively.
Julie Reyes opened the scor-
ing when freshman Samantha
Mitchell fed her the ball
ng in front of the Frostproof
0 goal. Reyes, a junior,
s headed the ball into the
roof goal from well inside the
penalty area to put the
a Streaks up 1-0 during the
ext eighth minute of play.
dale Eighth-grader Holly
ict on Kinchen answered for
Frostproof 12 minutes
later to tie the match, but
Secory and the Streaks defense
stiffened and turned everything
else away.
Catalina Diaz dribbled the
ball up the middle and fired a
rocket shot by Frostproof goal-
keeper Sierra Pedraza for the
match-winning goal with 9:14
left in the first half.
The Lady Bulldogs, who
came into the match 17-0, near-
ly scored on a direct kick in the
waning moments of the first
half.


DILLON McGOVERN/News-Siun
Blue Streak senior Jessica Bloemsma goes all out to clear the ball from the Sebring zone Friday night.


Whatever Ashley and assis-
tant coach Paul Brown said to
the Streaks during halftime
seemed to make them come out
even more stubborn and aggres-
sive for the final 40 minutes.
Sebring's offense didn't have
many scoring opportunities in


the second half, but the defense
kept coming up with match-
winning saves. Secory made a
diving save with 32 minutes
remaining and defenders Kim
Stewart, Brittany Fields and
sweeper Rachel Ashley helped
preserve the win.


Frostproof had yet another
golden scoring opportunity go
awry when Secory made a sen-
sational save on a header off of
a corner kick during the 59th
minute. Rachel Ashley, yet

Special to the News-Sun
Highlands Independent Bank avenged its
only loss of the season by winning a see-saw
battle over Miller Heating, 14-11 in Thursday's
Sebring Seniors Softball League at Lake June
Park. Tom Walsh led the Heaters with a 3-for-4
day. Contributing three hits for the Bank were
Ed Carroll, Bob Brooks and Bob Weiss. The
winning pitcher was Dick Harmic and the clos-
er, Jerry Kaplan, got the save.
At DeSoto Field, the Silent Salesmen defeat-
ed Discount Aluminum, 21-6. The Salesmen
were not as offensively overpowering as the
Discounters were defensively inept. Grounders
and fly balls that should have been routine outs
were bobbled by the Discount fielders. For the
Salesmen, a triple by Jerry Johnston was the
only extra-base hit. Ken Crandall led Discount
Aluminum with three hits and several key stops
at the hot corner. John Schmidt and Paul


Stephenson contributed two hits apiece.
At Lincoln Heights Field, the Yanks
squeezed out a 15-13 victory over the
Buttonwood Bay Rebels. The Yanks were
paced by the stellar defensive play of Doug
Hammond in left field, who handled seven put-
outs. Offensively, Dorian Quigg, Hammond,
Bill Wilkes and Art Kurtz were all 3 for 4. The
Rebs also had several timely hits from Tony
Cristo and Jack Grosso (both 4 for 5) and con-
tributing three hits each were Jerry Mattis,
Moose Morrissetes, Rollie Carlson and Bud
Scott, who hit a double.

overly tall, but they have a lot of speed and ath-

the hole."
It's the ability to penetrate that separates
Mulberry from Hardee, the other top 10-3A
school that handed Lake Placid (10-7, 2-4) a 69-
66 loss on Tuesday.
"Hardee was much the same way, but they did-
n't have kids the ball to hole so much," Young
said. "They had two or three real good spot-up
shooters. We can defend that pretty well with our
zone, but people that slash and have those hard
kids that take it right down inside, that's tough to
defend."
Young added that the foul trouble resulting
from all the Mulberry attacks to the basket served
merely to further hamstring his team.
"There aren't a whole lot of positives when
you get beat by 25," he said.

y with 14, to score in double figures for Lake
st Placid, and held both starting Green Dragon posts
a- to a combined 12, benefiting the up-and-down
ie game favored even by Mulberry's tallest player,
is the 6-foot-5 Harris.
"He's more of a slasher-type guard than a post
k player," Mulberry head coach Chris Jesse said of
S the senior, who finished with 13. "He's starting to
play well."
S Harris' improved play has coincided with the
return of London, who's missed most of the year
- with a shoulder injury from football, and
o, Dontone, who matched London with a game-high
d 18 points.
Is "He's really starting to play well now," Jesse
said of Dontone, whom he said had struggled ear-
le lier in the season. "The kid's got some talent."
.d "They were playing pretty loose, and shot the
ball real well," Young said of Mulberry. "They've

been playing a lot better the last few games."
Though he believes his team still has a long
climb in front of it, Jesse believes early season
games against brutal competition, including two
matchups with Class 5A No. 7 Lake Region, are
now paying dividends.
"Even though we lost some games, I think it
made us a better team, and I think we're starting
to benefit from our schedule right now," he said.
The better the Panthers play, the more prophet-
ic Young looks.
"I said at the beginning of the year I thought
Mulberry would be the toughest team in the dis-
trict," he said. "A lot of people didn't believe me,
but I think right now they might be."

turnovers turned a 16-10 Avon
Park lead into a 27-18 Hardee
advantage with two minutes left
in the half.
"That was a bad point for
us," Zwayer said. "We had
three guys in foul trouble, three
important guys. I thought the
other guys did a good job of
stepping up and playing hard
and I thought all of our guys
played well. I just think that if
we'd limit mistakes, we'd have
a lot better ball club.
"The effort was there and we
were prepared to play. The
small things are what killed us
tonight."
The Devils got back into the
game with two layups from
Peter Ymer and a 3-pointer by
Devaris Strange, who led the all
scorers with 19 points, to trail
30-25 at the half.
Avon Park closed the third
quarter strong, also, with center
Patrick Menzies back on the
floor. Hardee led 42-31 before
Menzies hit a pair of jump shots
and Strange canned another trey
to make it 40-38 for the last
points of the period with 2:11

the Department of Homeland
Security, not Home Plate
Security. Learn to tell the dif-
ference.
I've written a lot of harsh
words about people seeking
public stadium funding in print
over the years, including in
right here in this space. I may
have tossed around a "fat cat,"
or even a "rapscallion" or two,
but I don't think I ever used
"terrorist."
It's a shame Lee sullied an
important and necessary senti-
ment with a ridiculously poor
choice of words, especially
because Samson himself had
demonstrated a poor choice of
words when going after the
funds in the first place.
According to the same AP
report, Samson cited fan "dis-
comfort" as one of the reasons


the new stadium must include
a retractable roof.
You know, I cover a lot of
games outdoors, and I just
despise windy weather. How
about a dome for every sports
facility in Highlands County?
But then there are also those
really nice days I always look
forward to, and I'd hate to
waste one of those inside.
Shouldn't the state cough up
the extra dough to make these
roofs convertible'?
Yet I also feel a bit of "dis-
comfort" about children using
out-of-date textbooks and
attending dilapidated school
buildings. And maybe I would
feel better if a few bucks went
toward ensuring elections in
the state don't become a
national embarrassment again
anytime soon.
It would feel like a cool
shower on a hot day if maybe,
instead of a retractable roof


over a baseball stadium in
Miami, soldiers overseas actu-
ally had some armor to protect
them in case they meet up with
any real terrorists.
Perhaps Samson is being a
9-11 reactionary himself, capi-
talizing on the collective
American desire for comfort
foods, comfort television and,
it seems, comfort stadiums.
Call it multimillion-dollar nest-
ing.
So maybe in a few years, we
can all get together a busload
of underprivileged public
schoolchildren, drive a few
hours south and huddle in the
climate-controlled comfort of
the nearest outpost of tyranny.
Or fly out to see the Las Vegas
Marlins and place bets on
whether it will be Samson or
Lee making the next ridiculous
public statement.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Gather around

the table
My Mom's nine brothers
and sisters and my Dad's two
brothers and a sister meant
lots of aunts, uncles and
cousins to nurture me.
We enjoyed frequent fami--
ly gatherings with those who
lived nearby. However, when
family functions brought rel-
atives from near and far, we
couldn't fit around the same
table.
Wall-to-wall tables filled
living rooms and dining
rooms. Then, whether in the
kitchen or off to the side,
another table was set up. You
guessed right! It was the
kids, table where all the chil-
dren sat together.
We had fun; yet, there was
a part of us that didn't want
to sit at the kids, table. We
longed to be part of the fes-
tivities going on around the
big table the grown-up's
table.
Eventually, that day came
- our "right of passage" so to
speak. At last, we graduated
to the adult table.
Being part of a family and
sharing meals together signi-
fies welcome, love and
acceptance. It's that place
where we share the goodness
of nourishing food and fami-
ly life. We hear about each
other's day and talk over
things that concern us as a
family.
Meal time has always been
an important part of our fam-
ily's life. But it began with
preparations in the kitchen
long before we sat down. As
the aromas of simmering
foods drifted through the
house, noses twitched and
frequent visits to the kitchen
followed.
"Is it almost time to eat?"
they'd chorus, tasting a tidbit
or lifting a lid for closer
inspection.
Once around the table,
we'd pray and thank God for
the food and dig in. Most
times a leisurely pace could
be set and we'd visit laugh-
ing and joking or covering
serious topics of concern.
Quite often spiritual matters
came up. The comfortable
atmosphere around the table
set the tone. The fellowship
continued as everyone
pitched in with clean-up, kib-
itzing with one another.
When activities interfered
with dinner time, we gath-
ered later for doughnuts and
milk. It was too important to
miss.
Sorrowfully, much of that
camaraderie in families is
lost in today's busy society.
Mealtimes aren't a priority
and much more than good
food is lost.
Gathering, preparing and
serving food occupied a huge
chunk of time in Bible days.
We see Jesus frequently
around the table with loved
ones. It was here intimate
fellowship, warmth and
acceptance opened the door
to discuss spiritual matters.
Even a "picnic" for 5,000
illustrates how Jesus cared
for physical needs while
meeting spiritual needs at the
same time.
As God's children, we
have the privilege of feasting
at the "table" of his Word.
And when Christ returns, a
"right of passage" will be
experienced for believers as
we're invited to have supper
at his table.
"Blessed are those who are
invited to the wedding sup-
per of the Lamb!"

Health Ministry Team
Just what is a Health Ministry Team? Like its
name suggests, one person doesn't do this alone.
Many hands accomplish much within a church
congregation.
It generally starts with a parish nurse, a
licensed registered nurse who is called to inte-
grate the skill of nursing, the principles of well-
ness and the art of spiritual care within the con-
gregation. If an RN is not available, the Florida
Hospital Community Outreach Department acts
as a back up for lay health ministers.
Lay health ministers members of the congre-
gation who share the passion and vision of whole
person health come alongside the parish nurse
and help facilitate meaningful whole-person
Health programs. They work together with the
leadership and members of the congregations to

the age continuum, in order to begin and sustain a

SEBRING The Parish
Nursing program at Florida

Center thrives on volunteers .
"Volunteers are the heart of
this minister said Pamela
Schlarf, registered nurse and
Parish Nursing coordinator of
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center "I can't even
imagine where we would be
without them. I am in awe of
what theN ha'e accomplished.
It is a work of God."
Present. there are 90 parish
nurses. 48S la\ health ministers
and 113 parish nurse volun-
teers The\ participate not onl\
in their churches, but in com-
munitN events such as the
Noah's Fall'Festival in October.

festi\als and various health
fairs from mobile home parks
to the Red Hat Society\
During the hurricanes the

shelter staffing at individual
churches and the Red Cross.
Some coordinated food and
clothmg banks and assisted in
clean-up efforts logging in
5,000 hours or more.
The\ range in age from their
20s to 80s and include both
men and women.
Volunteers are continualll


needed to help in the office,
alongside parish nurses to start
church programs, as teachers,
and organizers. 1
"The push for 2005 is well-.
ness programs and we hope'
more people will aspire to \ol-.
unteer," Schlarf said.
She referred to the nation"
wide epidemic of obesity ii
children. Schlarf said that for.
the first time, babies born in
2000 will have a lower life
expectancy than their parents
because of lifestyle. obesity,
poor nutrition and lack of exer-
cise.
Plans for 2005 include:
Start "8 Weeks to Wellness"
course in congregations:

Seek additional grant fund-
ing to expand program and mis-
sion of Florida Hospital

Continue all that has been
ongoing in 2004.
These are admirable goals
and, God willing, they will be
reached with the help of volun-
teers who have the vision of
\whole person health.
"When people respond to
God's love and learn to care for
themselves and others the jour-
ney to wholeness begins."

Healthy Ministry Institute prepares volunteers


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The mission of the
Health Ministry Institute is to equip
members of a church congregation to
become lay health ministers. These lay
ministers facilitate health programs
which inform, motivate and minister to
the whole person.
For example, they learn to organize
health fairs and do follow-ups. They set
up health programs for the church that
uniquely fit its own congregation. A
church program may consist of classes
on nutrition and healthy cooking, exer-
cise classes and teaching the skill of how
to shop.


Financial debt wears on the emotions
and mind and affects the body. A class
on good stewardship, on how to main-
tain a checkbook or get out of debt all
of these qualify in whole person health.
"When a person learns to put God first
and know he is not in control," he is on
the road to a healthier lifestyle,"
explained Pamela Schlarf, registered
nurse and Parish Nursing coordinator of
Florida Hospital Heartland Medical
Center. "Every program and -instruction
is biblically based."
Lay health ministers may assist in
blood pressure checks. They can be
companions to the lonely, assist in get-
ting people to doctor appointments or go


with them to the emergency room.
"Lay health ministers become advo-
cates for the patient," Schlarf said.
The Health Ministry Institute focuses
on "equipping the saints" to carry forth
God's healing message of whole person
health.
Lay health ministers learn disease pre-
vention through utilization of biblical
principles and sound community health
standards. This naturally leads to the
goal of the program to establish and sus-
tain a health ministry within a congrega-
tion. Through the knowledge and skills
these volunteers gain, they become more
confident in working with congregation
and become an extra pair of hands for


the parish nurse.
If a congregation has an registered
nurse, he/she can become the parish
nurse over the program. If not, the lay
health ministers can coordinate the pro-
gram and promote wellness with the
backup of Florida Hospital Community
Outreach Department.
Together or separately, the parish
nurse and lay health minister assist the
pastor(s) in helping individual members
with health concerns. How do they do
this?
Schlarf explained it like this.
"A person may express that headaches
have been continually bothersome. The

ARTS & LEISURE



Presidents connected through January births and deaths


For all trivia lovers, do you
know how many of our presi-
dents were born or died in
January? Read "John Tyler.
10th President of the United
States" to learn more about the
man who served from 1841 to
1845 and died Jan. 18, 1862.
Born Jan. 7, 1800, this man
served in our country's highest
office from 1850 to 1853 and
our libraries have one biogra-
phy on him: "Millard Fillmore,
13th President of the United
States."
"First Lady: The Life of
Lucy Webb Hayes" tells the
story of the wife of the presi-
dent who served from 1877 to
1881. "Rutherford B. Hayes,
19th President of the United
States" gives another account of


his life and world, which ended
with his death Jan. 17, 1893.
Elected to serve from 1897 to
1901. William McKinley's life
spanned the change of cen-
turies. A video history of the
world he helped to change is
titled, "The Presidents of a
National Struggle: 1829-1901."
Born Jan. 29, 1843, his life is
outlined in "William McKinley,
25th President of the United
States."
Serving from 1901 to- 1909,
Theodore Roosevelt was the
first U.S. president of the 20th
century. This self-made man's
childhood is revealed in "The
Boyhood Diary of Theodore
Roosevelt, 1869-1870." See
him from a woman's perspec-


tive in "Alice and
Edith: The Two
Wives of Theodore
Roosevelt." Known
for his boldness and
courage, as described
in "Carry a Big Stick:
The Uncommon
Heroism of Theodore
Roosevelt," he is
even better known as
namesake of the
comfort of many a
child, the teddy bear.
He died Jan. 6, 1919.
There aren't any

perhaps


because our 30th president,
Calvin Coolidge, wasn't known
for his warmth and personality.
Find out more in "Coolidge: An


American Enigma."
Serving from 1923 to
1929, he headed the
S. country's helm in the
hectic days of the
f l a p p e r s ,
S "Prohibition, and the
S Stock Market Crash."
First Lady Grace
Coolidge is portrayed
Y LINES in our book "Grace
Coolidge and Her
olyn Era." Coolidge died
link in the middle of the
Depression years,
Jan. 5, 1933.
The architect of the New
Deal, Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, was born Jan. 30,
1882. He became our 32nd
president and served from 1933


until his death in office in 1945.
Shelves of books have been
written about this charismatic
man, but some of our choices
are: "The Age of Roosevelt,"
"Character Above All: 10
Presidents from FDR to George
Bush," and "Eleanor and
Franklin."
Our 36th president. Lyndon
Baines Johnson, was in office
from 1963 to 1969, dying Jan.
22, 1973. Watch our videos
"Lone Star Rising" or "LBJ"
and take home "For the
President's Eyes Only."
Johnson's successor, Richard
Milhous Nixon, our 37th presi-
dent, was born Jan. 9, 1913.
His accomplishments and low
points are thoroughly discussed


in "Kennedy and Nixon,"
"Breach of Faith: The Fall of
Richard Nixon" and "Courage
and Hesitation." Nixon was a
thoughtful writer whose many
hooks are still in print. You
may want to check out "1999:
Victory Without War."

'Tale of the Allergist's Wife' now on Highlands Little Theatre stage


Midway into the
first act of Charles
Busch's "The Tale
of the Allergist's
Wife," Marjorie, the
book-writing wife i
of the title, exclaims .
"Plato and Helen
Keller were my
major characters."
That piece of dia- ON S
logue, fusing a
Greek philosopher Roy R
with a talented and -
blind woman, was a
telling glimpse into Marjorie's
allergic and susceptible psyche.
Marjorie, energetically
played by Deborah E. Parker, is
the wife of Dr. Ira Taub, a New
York allergist, smoothly por-
trayed by Wayne Lambright.
Maijorie fills her day with visits
to museums, lectures, and psy-
choanalysis; Ira fuels his day
with more and more charity
cases; both of them seek wis-
dom, truth and understanding.
The couple are visited daily
by Marjorie's widowed mother,
Frieda, a feisty relic whose life
orbits around her digestive
problems; she is indelibly ren-
dered by Kristin Taylor.
The play opens the comfort-
able Taub apartment with


IT,
Rie


Marjorie prostrate on
S the sofa, over the
recent death of her
analyst. The Iraqi
doorman, Mohammed
(versatile Chris Hayes
in a small but key part)
is on a stepladder
working on the dining
room chandelier when
AGE he inadvertently turns
on the light. Marjorie's
edy scream would make
Dracula shiver.
As fate would have
it, the doorbell rings and in
walks Lee Green, a long-lost
childhood friend and glamorous
name dropper, beautifully per-
petrated by Tammie Pollard.
She instantly gets Marjorie into
an upright and mobile position.
For awhile Marjorie's life is
filled with Lee's presence and
vitality, which lifts her gloom to
reveal 1he pleasures of the city
that she once enjoyed. That is,
until she begins to have suspi-
cions about her friend's
motives. Then the curtain
descends on Act I to give the
audience an opportunity to
speculate on the outcome.
Contrasted with the spirited
act one, the second act was a
disappointment. The actors

were good, but the script was
faulty. The inscrutable Lee
leads the Taubs into unchartered
waters and- after---a- stormy--
evening, 'the play and the char-
acters,- experience a muddledd


denouement.
As confused as the ending
was, Parker's Marjorie, dis-
played a heroic sense of despair
anid exasperation. When she
observed that "Everything


today seems so trifling," this
dilettante could not be dis-
missed as being completely
superficial.
Director Pete P'.'Il.id's pro-
duction staff included Art


Harriman and Lindsay Lynch as
assistant directors, Jeffery
Lynch as stage manager and co-
producer with Lindsay Lynch.
The chic wardrobe was
designed by Lisa Thomas and
Helen Curcio. The lighting
design was by Thor Knutson.
Jonathan Jahnke was the light-
ing technician, and George
Symonds the sound technician.
Set decoration was done by
Peter Pollard, Tammie Pollard
and Karen Brawwer. Patty
Young was in charge of props,
and the set construction was
done by the cast and crew with
help from Lou Vekasy, Ken
Hall, Scott Fassole, Larry
Wollangk, Richard Shepard,
Michelle Shepard, Jennifer
Reed, Deanna Pollard, Jerry
Pollard, Fred Horman,
Christopher Friend and Ken
Cross. The stage crew included
Lindsay Lynch, Betty Adler,
Mac Byron, Chris Hayes, and
Heather Boyce.
The play is sponsored by
Jackson Hewitt Tax Service and
will continue through Sunday,
Jan. 30.

MINISTRY
Continued from 1C
Health Ministry Team looks
past that person's symptoms to
what may be the root cause.
They gently probe with suit-
able questions about what may
be going on in that person's life.
Have they recently lost a
spouse? Are there job concerns?
Has depression gotten a
foothold?"
By getting beyond the symp-
tom, the whole person is helped
to recover. In this way, the
parish nurse is able to make
referrals and recommendations.
A person may come to realize
that his symptom is a spiritually
related matter and, at last, seek
the pastor's counsel.

Optimal health
Sometimes people look at
getting in shape, eating right
and having good health as a
destination they need to reach.
The Parish Nursing Community
Outreach Program says differ-
ently.
"Optimal health is not a des-
tination, but a journey a jour-
ney of health and wholeness."
The lifestyle advocated is
practical and reliable because
healthcare organizations are
partnering with faith-based con-
- gregations to care for the whole


person. It's easy to get off track
in this journey; consequently,
it's good to have the assistance
of people of like-faith who care.
Jesus said, "I am come that
they might have life, and that
they might have it more abun-
dantly." (John 10:10, KJV)
Prayer
The Parish Nursing program
is keenly aware of the role of
prayer and encourages care
givers to make this a part of
their overall wellness program.
"Is anyone among you sick?
Let him call for the elders of the
church, and let them pray over
him, anointing him with oil in
the name of the Lord pray for
one another, that you may be
healed." (James 5: 14 & 16b,
NKJV)
Prayer plays a major role in
wellness. It's even making the
news of late; but, it's not news
to people of faith in the God of
the Bible. Prayer releases anxi-
ety, nourishes faith and lifts up
the faint of heart which is
healthy for body, mind and
soul.
"Most importantly," Schlarf
said, "prayer allows each per-
son to communicate with God
who is the ultimate Healer."

hospitals as places to go when
they are ill or injured and they

Community College's Museum of Florida Art and Culture through Feb. 4. MOFAC is at the Avon Park
campus.


SFCC's MOFAC showcases 'Ten

Women in Art' while its auditorium

gallery features Thursday Girls'


AVON PARK Two art
exhibits featuring the work of
women artists are being shown
at South Florida Community
College.
The SFCC Museum of
Florida Art and Culture is host-
ing the show "Ten Women in
Art" through Feb. 4.
Through Feb. 7, an exhibit
by a group of local women
artists who call themselves
"Thursday Girls" will be on dis-
play in the SFCC Auditorium.
It can be viewed during the
auditorium's regular hours.
Art work in the show "Ten
Women in Art" comes from a
group of highly professional
Florida artists including Becky
Beerensson, Nancy Dillen,
-Lydia Friedland, Carol Garutti,
Chris Adams Johnson, Susan
Martin, Beth Meggs, Ellen
Pavlakos, Lynn Spencer and
Glenda Taylor.
Among the art on display


will be the eloquent dry brush
renditions of Florida's rich
plant life in Berrensson's
"Yucca, Yucca." Martin's
"Driving Nature," is an oil and
metal work of art that brings to
mind southwestern Native
American pottery art. Spencer
has contributed her drawing
and drypoint series, "Animal,
Vegetable, Mineral," and
Friedland is showing her whim-
sical mixed media sculptures,
"Living Along a Fault Line."
All of the artists live in
Brevard County. They have
been working together for more
than 20 years and are commit-
ted to using their exhibitions to
educate the public and promote
diversity in women's arts.
MOFAC is housed at the
South Florida Community
College campus. It was estab-
lished to provide an exhibition
venue for contemporary Florida
regional art and to preserve


Florida's history and heritage
through art.
The museum is also a reposi-
tory for the collection of the
Kissimmee Valley
Archeological and Historical
Conservancy.
The museum is open to the
public from 12:30-4:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Thursdays and
Friday, and one hour before
each performance in the SFCC
Artist Series.
Group tours can be arranged
by appointment. Call 784-7240

AVON PARK -
Backwoods music and side-
splitting humor .will fill the
South Florida Community
College Auditorium Tuesday
when The River Rats are the
guests of the SFCC Matinee
Series.
Coming from Arkansas,
The River Rats are composed
of Comer "Moon" Mullins,

music spans blues, swing, rag-
time, ballads and classic pop
tunes.

Back 40!"

An inspirational thought

It is so good to walk in 'lie Iitor o/ the Lord. If you want
continual favor, stay obedient to His word. Are your prayers
hindered? Could you be walking in unforgiveness? Look with
me ini the scripture and see what the word of God has to
57ay about allfoiit cness.

Psalms 66:1 18 saYs. "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the
Lord \\'/il nor hicar In this verse we notice aano0g the
things that can block our prayer is ongoing sin. And that
sin is unforgiveness.

Mark 11:25 says, "And whenever you stand praying, if you
have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father

Attracting birds with ornamental plants


Birds can be an important
aspect of your backyard envi-
ronment. The bird population in
your yard can be increased with


GROlWINII


the proper
selection
a n d
arrange-
ment of
ornamental
trees and
shrubs.
A habitat
should pro-
vide food,


"v""'" cover, nest-
SEASON ing areas and
water. Many
Highlands ornamental
County Master plants can
Gardeners satisfy more
than one
habitat
requirement. For instance,
multi-stem plants that form a
dense canopy will satisfy the
needs for nesting and cover.
The food source should be
supplied, as much as possible,
by the trees and shrubs. To
maximize the natural food
source, select plants that will be
a food source year-round.
Using native to your locale
will help ensure that appropri-
ate fruits and berries are avail-
able for the birds. If the land-
scape does not supply food dur-
ing certain periods, you can
supplement-with commercial
bird seed. The seedsthat appeal
to the majority of birds are sun-
flower, ?roso millet, and peanut
kernels. :.. ,
Birds require protection fiom
inclement' i.e-her and natural
predators. This is. wh\ multi-
stem plants that form a dense
canopy are preferred. The dense
canopy also provides an ideal
environment for nesting.
Since birds require shelter
year-round, the yard should
have a mix of deciduous and
evergreen plants. Evergreen
plants include broadleaf ever-
greens, such as holly, and
conifers, such as red cedar.
Several references suggest that
at least 25 percent of.the trees
and shrubs should be evergreen.
Fresh water is also necessary


to maintain your bird popula-
tion. The water source should
be shallow (no more than 2- to
3-inches deep) and replaced on
a regular basis. Running water,
such as a shallow fountain or
elevated bird bath, is the ideal
source. The water source
* should be elevated or in the
Middle of an open area to mini-
mize predation by cats 'and
other animals.
To make your yard more suit-
able for birds, conduct an
inventory of your trees and
shrubs. From this list, deter-
mine the mix of evergreen and
deciduous trees, look at the


time of fruiting and identify
seasons without food supply.
Ensure that adequate cover and
nesting habitat is provided.
If you have few evergreen
trees and shrubs and have little
room additional plants, select
plants that are classified as
evergreen and are small sized at
maturity. These plants include
red cedar. nandina. viburnum,
pyracantha, Japanese yew,


Avail


holly, and wax myrtle.
If you need a food source for
the spring hut have limited yard
area available an excellent solu-
tion is to plant hawthorn, espe-
cially mayhaws.
Compiled by Ed Ayen, a Master
Gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.

Eduard Klassen to perform concerts of Paraguyan harp music


Paraguyan harpist Eduard
Klassen will be presenting two
concerts in Highlands County.
Klassen will be at Sebring's
Maranatha Baptist Church at 7
p.m. Friday, Jan. 28. The church
is one-half mile east of
Highlands Avenue on Arbuckle
Creek Road.
At 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29,
Klassen will give a concert at


the Avon Park
Holiness Camp
Tabernacle on
U.S. 27 North
at Lake Isis
Avenue. The
concert is
sponsored by KLASSEN
Oaks Village in
conjunction with the Avon Park
Holiness Camp meeting.


At the age of 7, while living
in the jungles of Paraguay,
Klassen heard music through
radio broadcasts from HCJG in
Ecuador. Music became a vital
part of his life. He has present-
ed more than 3,000 music con-
certs in 20 counties since
embracing Christianity.
His concert will include a
variety of Christian harp music


from South America, North
America and Europe as well as
his personal testimony and sto-
ries of God's work in his life.
Klassen has a unique sense of
humor that blends with lively
music to present the gospel
music.
The public is invited to both
concerts.
