Action urged



to fight crank


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING
Methamphetamine, also known
as speed, crank or crystal, is a
growing problem in the United
States, and it threatens rural
America every bit as much as
urban areas.
Originally its use centered in
the western states, but that is
changing.
In fact, the threat is already
close .to home as Polk County is
currently considered the meth
capital of Florida.
Here in Highlands County
the problem is not yet as severe,
with the presence of meth labs
decreasing; but local agencies
are seeing an increase in the use
of the drug. Last year in the
county there were 38 metham-
phetamine related arrests.
Nationwide, there has been
an explosion of meth lab
seizures with 204 closed down
in 2004. That number is up
from 23 seized in 1999.
Members of the Children's


Services Council voted unani-
mously Wednesday morning to
join in the battle against
methamphetamine, especially
because it puts so many chil-
dren at risk.
"We don't have to have an
epidemic in Highlands County
to take action," said Kevin
Roberts, director of human
resources for Highlands
County, who also is the execu-
tive director of CSC.
Methamphetamine is manu-
factured from commonly found
household products and over-
the-counter medications, and
for that reason is a three-
pronged threat.
First is the danger it poses to
the body of the user. Meth use
can lead to addiction, psychotic
behavior and brain damage.
Second is the danger posed
by users whose behavior is rad-
ically changed by the drug.
Users typically become para-
noid and aggressive with vio-
lent outbursts, their focus

United Way



makes goal;



director quits

By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING There were mixed emotions during the United
Way of Highlands County advisory board meeting Wednesday
as the group celebrated surpassing its goal and then bid
farewell to executive director Susie Bishop who turned in her
resignation.
In one breath Bishop was elated to announce to the local
board, "We are going to pass our goal." The goal set last year
was $455,000. As of Jan. 25, a total of $468,459 had been
received with seven campaigns, four corporate gifts and other
donations to still be collected. Bishop projected that the total
will be more than $485,000.
"In October, I never ever would have
dreamed we would make goal," Bishop said.
"Because of the challenges faced in this coun-
ty from the devastation of the hurricanes, it
was predicted to be difficult. As always, the
citizens in Highlands County stepped up to the
challenge and saw the need to help our pro-
grams. We were fortunate that many of our
disaster programs were already in place when BISHOP
the hurricanes hit."
Bishop pointed out that the extra money raised in this year's
campaign will be greatly needed among several of the charities
receiving funding from United Way. The extra funds will help
some agencies replenish their food banks that were depleted
after the hurricanes.
In this past year, 10 new programs in Highlands County
were added to receive funding from- United Way. There are
now 34 human service programs being assisted and 22 agen-
cies. Some agencies have multiple programs being funded,
Bishop explained.
After making the announcement that Highlands County
reached its goal, Bishop took a deep breath and said, "I am
resigning my position as of Feb. 15 since I have accepted a
' -new position:-'7
She will be taking on the position of business development
coordinator for Glades Electric Cooperative, covering four
counties Highlands, Glades, Henry and Okeechobee. She
plans to still live in Sebring and eventually volunteer for
United Way.
"It's been a great experience," Bishop told her board mem-
bers about working with United Way. "I can't express how dif-
ficult the decision has been."
As she fought back tears she told the board, "Many people
were impacted and it's attributed to all of you. I'm very pas-
sionate about my work here and I will be a volunteer."
Bishop has been director of United Way in Highlands
County for five years. She has'been faced with increasing goals
and increasing needs in this county each year, but has always
risen to the top to meet each of these challenges.
In 1999 when Bishop started, the campaign grew from

SEBRING Last year more
than 60 hopefuls jammed the
Circle in historic downtown
Sebring in search of $1,000 and
the title of Heartland Idol.
Ultimately it was Highlands
Little Theatre's Nellie Guzman
who emerged as the winner.
Originally the event had been
designed for young adults.
However, over the course of the
event there were dozens of
youngsters who signed up to
compete. The interest level was
enough to get organizers think-
ing that they too might want to
have a competition they could
call their own.
Enter Junior Idol.
The first round of that event
is scheduled for Thursday, Feb.
3.
"There will be two age cate-
gories," said Diana Hirsch, who
envisioned and organized the
first event.
Age categories will run from
13-17 years of age and those
12-years-old and under.
While the original contest
involved two-minute snippets
of songs done acapella, Hirsch
said the Junior Idol contestants
would be permitted to have
musical accompaniment.
That will be provided by the
Okeechobee-based Western
Pleasure Karaoke. It's the same
operation that provided the
music for the Heartland Idol
finals.


In the inaugural contest,
some of the judges had noted
that youngsters had been intim-
idated singing without music.
Organizers then made the deci-
sion to allow the backup tracks.
"When they sign up, they
will be allowed to pick two
potential songs," Hirsch said.
"The Western Pleasure folks
have assured me that if I name
it, they probably have it."
In the Heartland Idol compe-
tition, sign-ups started slowly
but escalated as the contest pro-
'gressed.
"We had a lot of people sign
up the night of the show,"
Hirsch explained.
It will be the same for this
competition. Hirsch said she
will be accepting entries up
until 5:40 p.m. the evening of
the show.
For Junior Idol, there will
only be two preliminary rounds,
one on Feb. 3, the other on Feb.
17. The finals will be March 3.
"We'll pick five winners
from each age group each night,
then we'll have a total 6f 20
sing at the finals," Hirsch said.
The entry fee will be $10 for
the initial sign up, with a $5 fee
for those who did not make the
cut the first time and want to try
again.
That happened several times
during the Heartland Idol com-
petition, when contestants tried
their hand a second time after
hearing comments from the
judges.


A day to remember


This time there will be a new
master of ceremonies. Bill
Cross will be handling the
microphone.
"He was supposed to do it
last time but he got sick,"
Hirsch said.
Instead, Cross served as a
judge in the first go 'round.
"He'll do a great job," Hirsch


said. goodies. Alan Wildstein has information can

Lorida to be hoppin' with


annual Round-up Saturday


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's that time
again, when folks from all over
Highlands County will con-
verge on Lorida this Saturday
for the annual round-up.
"We're going crazy with this
thing. It's going to be bigger
than Hurricane Jeanne," said
Lorida Community Club Vice
President John Ames.
Planned this year is an
expanded parade, appearances
by local celebrities and mas-
cots, plus lots of food and enter-
tainment.
The day will begin with a
catfish tournament. That event
is sponsored by Lorida Bait &
Tackle, with fishing permitted
anywhere in Highlands County.
Prizes will be given to the
first, second and third place
winners in each of three cate-
gories. Sign-up will cost $20.
The announcements on the win-
ners is scheduled for noon at the
community center.
New Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton will make
an early morning appearance,
then serve as the grand marshal
of this year's parade. Ames said
not only will the route be
longer, he anticipated more par-
ticipants as well.
The units will line up at the
Church of the Brethren, then
proceed down through the
palms, past the Post Office then
winding up at the ballfield.
"That's where we'll put the


vehicles on display," he said.
At the end of the parade,
units from Veterans of Foreign
Wars will conduct a flag cere-
mony.
There will be plenty of food.
The fare will start early with a
pancake breakfast to be served
Saturday starting at 6 a.m. That
will be cooked up by members
of the Community Club.
"If they don't like pancakes
we'll have sausage and gravy
too," Ames said.
Lunch or brunch -
begins at 10 a.m. as the Lorida
Fire Department teams up with
the local Lions club for a barbe-
cue. ,
"They'll have hot dogs, rib
dinners, chicken barbecue and
cold drinks," he said. "At 11
a.m. we'll start serving the
Lorida Sundaes.
Those concoctions consist of
heaps of great northern beans
atop a slice of cornbread. An
onion topping is optional.
Also at noon, the WWOJ
radio team of John Meder and
Barry Foster will serve as
judges for the Great Cake Bake-
off.
Beginning at 1:30, the catfish
dinners will go on sale.
Proceeds from those meals will
go to help underwrite many of
the other Lorida community
events throughout the year.
Entertainment will be offered
throughout the day, beginning
at 9 a.m. with the Bluegrass
Travelers.


For the folks who have heard
a lot about the pending produc-
tion Florida! There will be a
sample performance of parts of
the planned play by members of
the Florida Heartland Heritage
Foundation at 11 a.m.
The entertainment will wind
up at 4:30 p.m. with more blue-
grass and old country tunes.
There also will be an old
fashioned cow camp. A unique
replica of an original cow
camp, there will be demonstra-
tions of whip popping, roping
and lye soap making.
"Pam McClelland will have
authentic vittles for the tasting
there," Ames said.
Throughout the day repre-
sentatives of the Highlands
County Soil and Water
Conservation District will have
pamphlets, Freddy the Gator
will be out with officials from
the South Florida Water
Management District and the
Division of Forestry will have
Smoky the Bear on hand to
meet and greet the youngsters.
Also planned is a Kids
Korner with face painting,
crafts and a bounce house.
"If that's not something for
everybody I don't know what
is," Ames said. "The best part is
that 99 percent of it is free.
There's no admission fee, no
charge for parking the only
thing you pay for is the food."
Those wanting additional
information on the fishing tour-
nament may call 412-9095.

Jorge Perez charged with



attempted murder with knife


By PHIL ArTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County sheriff's deputies have
charged Jorge Rivera Perez, 19,
of Sebring, with attempted sec-
ond-degree murder.
He is being held on no bond.
The incident allegedly hap-
pened at 10 p.m. Saturday, Jan.
22. A 35-year-old Hispanic
male was drinking beer with
several other Hispanics outside
their homes on Douglas Avenue
in Sebring.
The 35-year-old got in an
- argument with Perez, possibly
over the music being played. It
escalated into a fist fight, dur-
ing which Perez allegedly used
either a blade or broken bottle
to cut the other man. He left a 9-


inch-long and
2-inch-deep
cut on the left
side of the
man's throat,
beneath his
chip. The cut
took 15 inner
stitches and 23

outer stitches to close.
The victim also had a cut on
his back requiring two staples
to close, a cut on the right side
of his chest (six staples), a cut
on his right cheek (nine stitch-
es), a cut to his right ear (four
stitches), and a cut on his right
abdomen (two staples).
When questioned by
deputies, the victim described
'the night's events, including the


fight, but said he went home
afterward and fell asleep. He
said he was awakened at 6 a.m.
and told he was bleeding. His
work crew leader drove him to
the Highlands Regional
Medical Center, which is where
deputies found him.
The victim did not know
Perez at the time, but described
him.
When questioned, Perez told
deputies that when the man
complained about the music,
Perez asked him to leave. He:
denied using any kind of blade,
but later recanted, saying he
may have thrown a beer bottle
at the victim from three feet.
Deputies arrested him based
on the statements and injuries.

Driver gets hit, runs from scene


SEBRING After being hit
Monday on U.S. 27, one driver
took off and has yet to be iden-
tified by law enforcement.
The driver of the other car,
Marjorie W. Ayala, 26, of
Sebring, was transported to
Highlands Regional Medical

Polices County report

I Highlands County report


Brown charged

with stealing

livestock
AVON PARK On
Tuesday, Jan. 18, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
charged Joseph Lee Brown,
34, of Sebring, with warrants
of 11 counts of stealing live-
stock.
Bail was set at $11,000.
At 10:30 a.m., Jan. 11, a
neighbor of the Gene Brown
Ranch on State Road 66
allegedly saw a dark-colored
Dually pickup pulling a cattle
trailer out of a nearby gate at
a high rate of speed.
Reportedly, Joe Brown was
staying at the ranch.
When she told this to a
ranch employee, he thought it
sounded suspicious and called
the owner in California. No
cattle were scheduled to be
moved.
Another witness reported
asking Joe Brown who owned
the ranch and cattle, and he
said he did. She also saw him
talking with a Hispanic male
called "Bean" and a woman
called "Lowanda" about
needing money. Allegedly,
Joe Brown told them to take
cattle to Sebring and try to
sell them. That reportedly
didn't work and" they had to
take the cattle somewhere
else. Their rig was described
as a blue pickup pulling a
rusty brown trailer.
Deputies discovered that
the cattle had been taken to
D&S Cattle Company in
Zolfo Springs, where an
employee described doing
business that day on 11 head
of cattle with a similar female
and Hispanic male who had'
arrived in a blue pickup with
a rusty brown trailer. The


employee had bought the cat-
tle for $5,447.50.
On Jan. 18, deputies found
Joe Brown at a Seiple Road
address in Avon Park, and
arrested him under warrants.

When searching the Ford,
the officer found a burnt
cannabis cigarette in a ciga-
rette pack in the floor board

Baggies of cocaine. When the

was an open can of beer at
the feet of the passenger,
Edwardo Romero, 18, of

was his beer, Romero alleged-
ly said yes.
While he was arrested, he
attempted to turn away sever-
al times before he was finally
placed in the patrol car,
reports said.
He was charged with pos-
session of cocaine and pos-
session of alcohol by a minor,

with heroin

possession
SEBRING -At 11:33
p.m., Aug. 20, 2004, police
arrived at Wal-Mart to assist a
Highlands County sheriff's
deputy with a strange case.
Allegedly, a woman was
hopping around the parking
lot and scratching at her arms
and legs, saying bugs were
under her skin, crawling on
her, and crawling up her nose.
None were, reports said.
When asked if she used
any illegal drugs that night,
and she said she used cocaine
earlier in the night, and had
some in her purse in a plastic
bag. When the officer
searched her purse, and found
a Ziploc bag containing white
powder. They also found a
small yellow paper envelope
containing tan pills. She said
they were her husband's.

News-Sun
SEBRING Two drivers
were cited Saturday morning,
but no one got hurt when fog
shrouded the intersection at
U.S. 27 and U.S. 98.
Two separate wrecks took
place there at 8 a.m. in the
northbound lanes. The Florida
Highway Patrol dispatched two
troopers to make wreck reports.
Semitrailer sideswipe
At 8 a.m. Saturday, James H.
Pollard, 57, of Sebring, was
northbound in a 1989 Toyota on
U.S. 27, approaching the inter-
section at U.S. 98, and attempt-
ed to enter the right-hand turn
lane.
At that time, a Volvo semi-


trailer, driven by Alexis
Spinosa, 36, of Miami, was
approaching the intersection
and was able to see the other
traffic stopped there.
Spinosa swerved to the right
to avoid a wreck and hit the
right side of the Toyota.
Pollard was buckled in but
was treated for minor injuries at
Highlands Regional Medical
Center. Spinosa and an
unknown 20-year-old passenger
were also belted and uninjured.
FHP cited Spinosa for care-
less driving.
Car rear-ended
At 8 a.m. Saturday, a 2001
Ford pickup driven by Joseph
C. Stockenberg, 35, of Lake
Placid, was stopped for a red


light in the middle lane of U.S.
27 at the intersection with U.S.
98.
Daphne V. Warde, 83, of
Lake Placid was northbound in
a 1998 Dodge van in the middle
lane, didn't see the truck in
severe fog and ran in the back
of it.
She was wearing a seat belt
and was treated at Highlands
Regional Medical Center for
minor injuries. Both
Stockenberg and his passenger
- James F. Guinn, 48, of Lake
Placid were buckled in; nei-
ther had injuries.
FHP cited Warde with failure
to use due care in hazardous
conditions.

AVON PARK It was in
January 2003 Terry Heston
made the announcement that he
planned to convert the site of
the old Coca Cola plant on
Tulane Circle into a series of
resort cottages.
Almost two years to the day,
Heston is preparing to let out
the last of the five units. He did-
n't have to wait long to get
occupants.
"They filled up the second
they became available," said
Heston.
Even as he was showing off
what he has been able to
accomplish to date, workers
were putting the last touches on
the final cottage.
"The folks are supposed to
move in this weekend. They
said they plan to stay eight to 10
months while they have their
house built," he said.
The units are about 1,000
square feet each with a living
loom, dining area, bedroom,
den, kitchen and bath. They
also have a commanding view
of Lake Tulane.
"Isn't that just a great view?"
asked Heston as he gestured
across the sparkling blue water.
Although the cottages are
occupied, the detail work is not
yet nearly completed. Heston
said he planned to put a dock
out into the lake and would be
clearing out some of the vegeta-
tion in the area.
Also still to be done is the
covered picnic pavilion that is
being built on the site of the old
Coca Cola bottling plant.
"That's the original floor," he
said, pointing to the concrete
slab. "You can see there where
the walls used to be."
The plans for the pavilion are
to put in picnic tables and bar-
becue grills. Heston also has
been in negotiations with some

Joe and Betty Merrill are staying in one of the Coca Cola cottages

on the links.


local individuals to get some
original Coca Cola signs to use
on the front of the building to
carry the theme through.
"Look down here," he said,
gesturing through the center of
a giant stack of trusses. "You
see that big circle? That's where
the old coke bottle used to stand
arid that's where it will stand
again."
Once upon a time there was a
replica of a six-ounce bottle of
Coke that stood 25 feet tall and
eight feet around at the base.
Most people said it looked just
like the real thing.
* The bottling plant closed in
1969; seven years later both the
bottle and the plant burned to
the ground. '
The Coca Cola theme
already has been carried
through the decor of the cot-
tages to a certain extent but
Heston promised there would
be more.
In addition to the Coke
theme, Heston has suggested
one of the houses might have


some memorabilia and decora-
tion in honor of the St. Louis
Cardinals a team that at one
time held spring training in the
City of Charm.
Another possible decorating
theme would be to the railroads,
as the CSX freight line runs
along the edge of the property
and down the' eastefri shord of'
the lake.
"You can hardly hear the
trains when you're inside the
cottages," he said.
The construction took a great
deal longer and has cost pro-
gressively more due to the hur-
ricanes.
"It's amazing that we didn't
suffer more damage, but the
houses are shielded by the hill
there," Heston said as he point-
ed to the rest of the ridge, which
also is home to the road right of
way.
Nevertheless, the spot is
secluded on the dead end of
Tulane Circle.
"It's real quiet back here, it's
nice," he said.

jingle paying homage to the Visit and Shop in
Avon Park campaign. With playful lyrics,
sung to the tune of "It's A Small World After

minating in June, there will be a monthly
drawing for a prize. The grand prize, a 55
inch, high resolution television, will be
awarded to a lucky winner at the Chamber's
annual banquet June 2. The television was
donated by Babcock Home Furnishings at
607 U.S. 27 N.
Dates for the drawings have not yet been
set, but are expected to be at the end of each
month.
Entry forms can be found at businesses dis-

County overdrawn on first quarter thanks to hurricanes


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Tuesday,
county commissioners learned
the annual budget was a bit
overdrawn for the first quarter,
but that may only be from hur-


CASINO
Continued from 1A
heavy hors d'oeuvres. We'll
even have some Jambalya,"
Greenslade said.
For the thirsty, there also will
be a cash bar.
David Flowers will be pro-
viding the entertainment,
singing and playing a mix of
country and popular tunes.
At the end of the evening, the
lucky gamblers will be able to
cash in their chips for door
prize tickets.
Among the prizes to be given
out will be tickets to the upcom-
ing Avon Park Legends race,
rounds of golf, supertickets to
the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring and a trip to Sky
Mountain in Dillard, Ga.
Greenslade said as of
Wednesday, all the dealers and
prizes have been lined up for


ricane recovery.
Pam Cross, finance officer
with the clerk of the courts, said
the county has collected 43 per-
cent, more than one-third of its
annual revenue, based on unau-
dited numbers. About $22 mil-


the event.
Greenslade said there would
be plenty of opportunity for
folks to try their luck through-
out the evening. Folks will be
able to play games of blackjack,
Caribbean poker, roulette,
craps, and an "over/under"
table.
The machinery is owned and
operated by chamber members
and volunteers.
"We had them made a couple
of years ago, then we use them
every year," he said.
The event is a major fund-
raiser for the chamber and one
of the annual favorites of local
residents. The money made on
ticket sales are underwriting by
four sponsors.
"Sprint, Progress Energy,
The Storage Place and Designer
Top Shop have stepped. up to
help us with the operating
expenses," he said.
Although it is a fund-raiser


lion of that is from ad valorem
taxes, she said.
However, the county has
spent 27 percent of expected
expenses, almost one-third.
Cross said without the open
purchase orders for work that


for the chamber, Greenslade
said the organization had been
careful to make sure that is con-
ducted by the letter of the law.
This is the fifth casino night
in "the modem era." It was
done for a while in the past, was
discontinued for several years
then was resurrected in the late
1990s.
Greenslade emphasized that
the event is open to the public,
and people do not necessarily
have to be members of the
chamber to participate.
Tickets are available at
Highlands Independent Bank,
Heartland National Bank, at the
chamber office and at the door
for $25.
The fun will commence at 7
p.m. Saturday at the Avon Park
Community Center.
Those wanting additional
information may call the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce at
453-3350.


hasn't been done yet, that num-
ber would be more like 21 per-
cent.
Landfill
The landfill, despite giving a
lot of people free dumping after
the hurricanes, has taken in 44
percent of the year's revenue,
Cross said. That's $3.9 million.
Again, just like the overall gov-
ernment funds, the landfill has
spent 27 percent of it's expected
expenses $2.7 million but
has about $1 million of that in
open purchase orders.
Cross said that the landfill
waived about $485,000 in tip-
ping fees for storm debris com-


ing into the landfill.
Utilities
Placid Utilities has spent
$285,000 so far, which is 35
percent of the annual budget,
but Cross said that includes
$142,000 in open purchase
orders. So far, the utility has
pulled in $213,000 (32 percent
of budget) from connection
fees, meter setting charges, and
both water and sewer impact
fees.
Highway Park Utilities has
seen an increase in revenue, up
to $33,000, or 28 percent of the
annual budget, thanks to the
Lake Huntley water line exten-


sion project. Expenses are up to
$57,000 in the first three
months, but Cross said that's
from $37,000 in open purchase
orders.
EMS
For the first quarter of Fiscal
Year 2004, Emergency Medical
Services did a lot better than the
previous year. As of Dec. 31,
2004, EMS has sent out about
$500,000 in bills, with $70,000
in adjustments, and collected
$590,000. By December 2003,
the county had sent out bills of
$720,000, with $130,000 in
adjustments, and still had only
$590,000 collected.

will be stepping down. The board recognized both Bishop and Heintz during its regular meeting at the
Children's Advocacy Center in Sebring.


GOAL
Continued from 1A
$300,000 to close to $490,000
in 2004. Leadership givers,
people who donate $1,000 or
more annually, grew from nine
to the current 55 under Bishop's
reign. She also secured Alan
Wildstein to be an Alexis De
Tocqueville donor, a $10,000
personal contribution, for the
past three years. Sebring Ford
and Bill Jarrett Ford also had
been at that level for one year.
"Susie has increased and
exceeded ,goals every year,
added new programs and
increased the community's
awareness about United Way,"


CRANK
Continued from 1A
entirely given over to the drug;
they live to find a source and
experience the effects. Parents
on meth often abuse and neglect
their children.
Finally there is the danger to
the immediate neighbors of
those people who make
methamphetamine. The chemi-
cals used are toxic and unstable.
The release of noxious gases
and the threat of explosions are
very real.
The toxic by-products of the
manufacturing process also
pose a danger when they are
discarded into the community
carelessly. Making one pound
of the drug creates six pounds
of highly toxic waste.
First responders face a seri-
ous risk of contamination when
entering a site that has been
used as a lab. Firefighters also
face increased danger as some
of the chemicals in combination
ignite when in contact with
water.
Most methamphetamine is
produced in "super labs" which
process pounds of the drug at a
time. Many of these labs are in
Mexico or California.
Because the ingredients are
so available, however, "mom
and pop" labs have come into
being where only small
amounts are made, primarily
for home use.


said Kim Heintz, advisory
board chairperson. "Highlands
County has the most organized
advisory board under Susie's
helm as director."
The board presented Bishop
with flowers, a cake and a
plaque to show their apprecia-
tion for the hard work and ded-
ication she has given to the
United Way. Heintz was pre-
sented with a bouquet of flow-
ers since this was her last board
meeting as chairperson and a
member. Mary Birge will be the
new chairperson for 2005.
"She has worked tirelessly
for United Way and the com-
munity," Heintz said about
Bishop. "She will be missed
dearly by the board."


Mom and pop labs are small
enough to be carried in a suit-
case or ice chest, and have been
found in places as varied as iso-
lated cabins, motel bathrooms,
boats or kitchens.
This means the number of
children who have been found
at the site of meth labs has dra-
matically increased in recent
years. In 2001, approximately
35 percent of the children found
at lab sites tested positive for
toxic levels of chemicals in
their systems. These levels are a
result of contact in the environ-
ment, not drug use.
For this reason, and because
so many of these children are
badly neglected, the CSC will
be lobbying the Florida
Legislature to amend Florida
Statute 39.01, which defines
child abuse, to include the
phrase "children living in a
toxic environment."
The CSC also voted to help
develop a public awareness
campaign, and work at preven-
tion and early detection. It sup-
ports increased professional
training for social service, edu-
cation, and law enforcement
officials, and encourages col-
laboration and coordination
between service agencies.
Current efforts are still piece
meal in approach, with one
agency often unaware of anoth-
er's programs. This is changing,
however, and an effort is being
made to develop statewide pro-
tocols.


Bishop admitted she gained
so much from her job at United
Way. "I'm taking away all those
wonderful relationships I have
been able to develop with the
agencies, volunteers, the board
and the CEOs (chief executive
officers)." .,-
She reassured everyone that
United Way of Central Florida
is working hard to find her
replacement and she will assist
in that process.
'The future of United Way is
in good hands with a team of
dedicated volunteers and the'
strong support from the com-
munity as a whole. United Way
will continue to grow and meet
the needs of our citizens,"
Bishop said.'


CSC members also unani-
mously voted to explore the
possibility of opening a chapter
of "Mothers against Meth" here
in Highlands County, and to
look into the Drug Endangered
Children program, which origi-
nated in California as part of its
effort to fight the spread of the
drug.


ACCIDENTS
Continued from 1A
attempting to make a U-turn on Stryker Road
near the intersection of Valencia Road, when his
1998 Saturn was hit broadside by a 1996 Honda
driven by 19-year-old Fernando A. Schmidt of
Avon Park.
The report indicated Schmidt apparently saw
Girdler attempting to make the U-turn and
"applied his brakes in an aggressive manner."
The Honda began to skid and hit Girdler's
Saturn with its passenger side.
Schmidt and a passenger in his car, 20-year-old
Luis Zapata also of Avon Park, sustained minor
injuries. They were taken to Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center in Sebring.
Girdler expired at the scene. His body was
transported to the medical examiner's office in
Bartow.
His passenger, Juan Lopez, 50, of Avon Park,
sustained only minor injuries.


Reports indicate both drivers and passengers
were wearing their safety belts.
Traffic was tied up along Stryker Road for sev-
eral hours while troopers conducted their investi-,
gation.
As the crash scene on Stryker Road finally was
cleared, an Avon Park woman was seriously
injured as she walked along Olivia Drive.
Vickie Lynn Kerklin, 35, was walking near the
intersection of Olivia and West Gaffney Road
about 6:50 p.m. Wednesday.
A Florida Highway Patrol report said 20-year-
old Antonio Gervasie did not see Kerklin and
struck her with the front corner of his 1998
Lincoln.
Kerklin was airlifted to Lakeland Regional
Medical Center. Officials there refused to release
any informanon on the wDoman. however, Florida
High%\%a, Patrol reports indicated her injuries as
criticall." -
Gervasie nor any of his four passengers were
injured.
Charges are pending in all of three of these
accidents.

Bird watching tour is winding through Lake Placid


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID
The Lake Placid Mural Society
has a new project that may
bring bird watchers flocking to
Lake Placid.
At the beginning of January, 12-inch
and 24-inch metal disks began appear-
ing at businesses around the town.
More than 30 have been erected in the
last month, each one featuring a differ-
ent bird that is indigenous to the Lake
Placid area.
Harriet Porter said her husband, Bob,
came up with the idea. He thought it
would attract bird watchers while pro-
moting the town's businesses and
murals at the same time.
"This is strictly being done by the
Lake Placid Mural Society," Porter said.
"It's an original idea. It hasn't been
copied from any other town. I don't
know if anything like it has been done
before, but we've never seen it."
All of the bird signs are being paint-
ed by Jayne Ford. a professional artist
who is moving to Lake Placid. Many
passers-by may have noticed her about
four weeks ago while she repainted the
"Town of Murals" sign near the railroad
overpass on the north side of Lake
Placid.
Two long-time members of the
Audubon Society helped confirm which
birds could be considered indigenous.
So far, the mural society has a list of
more than 50 birds it wants to feature.
"We have about 30 of those up and
more are on the way," Porter said. The
mural society plans to add disks as the
project grows, which it may do for
some time. Porter said about 200
species of birds have been identified at
Buck Island Ranch alone, which is
south of Lake Placid near Venus.
The bird portraits are being placed
throughout the business district and can
currently be found along Interlake
Boulevard, Oak Street, Dal Hall
Boulevard and Main Street.
Among those birds being featured are
two species of woodpeckers, the crested
caracara, eagles, the red-tailed hawk,


SUMMER FERRANTE/News-Sun
Joe Bonett puts up a bird disk at Sassafras Used Books and Gourmet on Oak Avenue
in Lake Placid Wednesday afternoon. As part of a new project by the Lake Placid
Mural Society, the disks are appearing all over the downtown business district.


the eastern bluebird, the belted king-
fisher and the ruby-throated humming-
bird.
A great blue heron is at Curves on
Interlake Boulevard, while an osprey
has found a home at the Lake Placid
Police Station on Oak Street. Trinkets
and Treasures, on Main Street, is dis-
playing a wood duck. Miller's Central
Air, on Interlake Boulevard, has a
turkey. A cattle egret can be found at
Lake Placid Feed and Western Wear on
U.S. 27.
The only three-foot disk showing a
sandhill crane will be at the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce on Oak Street.
It will be on display when the chamber
reopens after its renovations are com-
plete.
Sponsorship costs are $100 for a 12-
inch bird disk and $200 for a 24-inch
disk. Sponsors can choose the bird they
want from a list of those still available.
Because the mural society is a non-
profit 501(c)3 corporation, donations


-I A


are tax deductible. All of the disks
become the property of the mural socie-
ty.
"There's such an enthusiasm for this
project that many of the merchants have.
purchased the birds for their buildings,"
Porter said. "Private sponsors are com-
ing forward, and we're contacting the
merchants to see who would allow us to
put a bird on their building."
The bird portraits are high quality,
being painted in the same ultraviolet
light-resistant paint used on the town's
murals, Porter said. The portraits then
receive two coats of vinyl ultraviolet
protection.
"They're protected like the murals
are," Porter said. "We'll take care of
them like we take care of our murals.
We'll make sure they stay in good
shape."
The project is meant to be education-
al as well as entertaining, .Porter said.,
The disks don't contain the names of
the birds or their sponsors. In the

Artist Jayne Ford paints a bird disk for
the Lake Placid Mural Society. Ford's
bird portraits are appearing all over
town as part of a new 'bird watching' '
tour the mural society is sponsoring.

future, the mural society hopes to print
a brochure giving the names of the
birds and the streets where they may be
found but not the exact location -
which will give walkers the challenge
of spotting them. Some are positioned
at eye level, but others can be found
under eaves and in trees, for example.
"People will have to walk along and
look for the birds, like they look for
hidden things in our murals," Porter
said.
The mural society is now making 8
1/2-inch by 11-inch framed portraits of
the birds, which will also contain their
names and give information about
them. Eventually, each merchant will
receive a portrait of the bird that is dis-
played at his or her business. That way,
people looking for information about
the bird can find it inside the store.
"We have several of them made,"
Porter said. "We don't have them all to
the merchants yet."
Porter added that the mural society
fared the hurricanes well with no
damage to its murals, trash containers
or metal clowns.
"We want to encourage people to
come down," Porter said. "Lake Placid
is in good shape now."
For sponsorship information, call
Harriet arid Bob Porter at 465-2394.

meet Saturday
Special to the News-Sun

War on Terrorism will be the
focus Saturday morning's Air

News-Sun, Friday, January 28, 2005


Cold temperatures increase fire danger


Special to the NewsL-Sun
The danger of several wild-
fires is increasing because olf
the colder weather, windy con-
ditions and the dry vegetation.
Although some rain is in the
immediate forecast, cooler tem-
peratures and dry air masses
quickly dry out vegetation
allowing it to easily ignite from
the smallest spark.
During this transitional peri-
od from wet summer weather to
dry winters, the native vegeta-
tion is entering a dormant stage.
Florida's extremely active hur-
ricane season has also produced
large amounts of dead vegeta-
tive debris that is lying on the
ground and curing. When com-
bined with recent frost kills,
these factors can contribute to
intense wildfires.
Fire activity is already
increasing in South/Central
Florida due to escaped yard
debris fires and road side starts


in dead grasses along road
shoulders. The Florida Division
of Forestry is urging everyone
to use caution with any outdoor
activities. The public needs to
be aware that outdoor burning
has been the cause of several
serious wildfires. There are
counties and cities in South
Florida where it is illegal to
burn without the proper per-
mits. The public that is unsure
of how to burn legally should
contact the local office of the
Florida Division of Forestry or
the local fire department.
Residents living in or near
areas close to flammable vege-
tation should make their homes
as safe as possible from the
threat of wildfires by following
FIREWISE guidelines.
Structures should be surround-
ed by a buffer zone extending at
least 30 feet. This area should
be free of highly flammable
vegetation and well maintained.


Leaves, pine needles and twigs
should be removed from roofs
and gutters. Flammable materi-

Graham still sought by marshals


U.S. Marshals are still seek-
ing Roy A. Graham, 39, on a
fugitive warrant for a convic-
tion of possession of cocaine
with intent to sell or distribute.
Graham is 6 feet tall, weighs
220 pounds, and has a gold
tooth, according to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Graham was arrested Oct.
27, 1998, according to records,
and turned over to the Drug


Enforcement Administration.
According to Sheriff's Lt.
Randy LaBelle, Graham
showed up for one day of his
trial, then bolted on a plane to
Jamaica, a fugitive on a convic-
tion of possession of cocaine
with intent to sell or distribute.
Recent tips have placed him
back in Highlands County.
Anyone with information
should call the U.S. Marshals
office at (772) 467-1723.

Barbershop groups saluting America


Chordiac Arrest, an award-winning
quartet that spoofs the medical
profession, will headline the show


AVON PARK

The Heartland
Harmonizers barber-
shop chorus and
Sounds of Sebring
quartet will stage a "Salute to
America" and 2 and 7 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 19, at the South
Community College
Auditorium.
The groups' third annual
show will feature patriotic
music.
The quartet Yours for a Song
will make an appearance at
this year's program, and the
Highlands Ridge Chorale will
join the Heartland
Harmonizers in a choral piece.
A special guest appearance
will come from Chordiac
Arrest, a finalist in the
International Barbershop
Harmony Society contest.
Unlike many of their com-
petitors, who perform in stylish
suits, Chordiac Arrest appears
in wrinkled surgical scrubs.
Lead singer Dick Johnson
believes they may have set an
all-time iccrid for the cheapest
costumes ever worn in compe-
tition by a top-five medalist
quartet.
"That was the main reason
we decided to choose doctors,"
Johnson said. "The little masks
don't cost much when we lose
one, either. We figure that's
why doctors are so rich -
they don't have to buy suits."
The four show no mercy as
they belt out numbers rewritten
to poke fun at the medical pro-
fession, such as "Oh, We Do
Make a Barrel of Money."
They sing "Forgive Me" when
tenor Marty Jahnel dies on the
operating table and then restart
his heart with jumper cables
while singing "Nothing Could
Be Fina than a Little Old
Angina In the Morning."
Audiences love the vaude-
villian comedy and barbershop
sound.
Bass singer Earl Meseth said
the members originally began
getting together to have fun at

contests and spoof serious con-
tenders.
"The quartet didn't really
expect to become serious con-
tenders," Meseth said. "Now
we're not sure who played a
joke on whom!"
Today, Chordiac Arrest per-
forms all over the country and
has shows booked three years
in advance. It has reached the
top 10 in international compe-
tition four times and was twice
named fifth-place medalists.
It has performed numerous
shows for the medical profes-
sion and received a warm wel-
come in Rochester, Minn.,
home of the Mayo Clinic.
Recently, the singers began
adding Delta Airlines pilots to
their hit list with songs like
"When It's Darkness on a
Delta" and "Flight Five-Oh-
Two, Where Are You?"
I In fact, Delta was so delight
it flew the quartet to Atlanta,
Ga., to sing for 250' of its exec-
utives.
Tickets are $12 in advance
and $15 at the door. They may
be purchased at Lake Placid
Drug Co. in Lake Placid, the
Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring
and the Jacaranda Hotel in
Avon Park or by calling 471-

"Salute to America" is spon-
sored by Florida Hospital

Freedom of

expression
Editor:
I am truly an advocate of
freedom of expression.
However, one has to wonder if
some of these writers are suf-
fering from memory loss.
Surely they know that the prob-
lems facing this nation didn't
all begin with this administra-
tion.
Some are contending to be
Christians, yet they call our
president a liar. Maybe they got
that title on the wrong person.
My Bible says one who does
this is in danger of hellfire.
They sing Al Gore's praises.
I'm thankful that there are
those who don't share these
views. The election is proof of
that. I don't believe anyone has
ever put forth more effort to
become president than John
Kerry did, but the people knew
that he didn't represent their
views of most Americans.
There are those of us who lift
up our leaders daily for God's
guidance in the decisions they
have to make, without which it
would be impossible to make
right decisions.
It would be of great value if
we would all ask for God's help
and dwell on the positive think-
ing on the good rather than
dwelling on the negative.
Hate and bitterness are truly
two of Satan's most effective
weapons. The ones who are
hurt the most are those who
allow Satan to use them in this
way. Think about it. I will keep
you in my prayers. May God
give each of you his divine
directions.

Politicians are

scam artists
Editor:
America's largest group of
"scam artists" our "politicians"
from the president on down.
It's pay back time to all those
special interest groups who
elected those who will control
government for the next four
years.
At the top of the list are the
top one percent of America's
population who will benefit
from the misuse of Social
Security tax revenues to fund
the administration's "perma-
nent tax cut," for mostly
wealthy Americans. Also $2
trillion for "Wall Street."
Already last year's tax cut has
cost us dearly, squandering
$1.3 trillion in resources.
(Scaling back just two-fifths
of the tax cut would provide the
resources to restore solvency to
Social Security, as it would
completely eliminate the pro-
jected 75-year deficit.)
The Bush administration and
those who support them,
including big business, power-
ful special interests and


AT RANDOM

idrs" Making
riders" ai


sw


wealthy campaign contributors
have been laying the ground-
work for months to gain
acceptance for making perma-
nent the tax cut for the top one
percent.
The administration's perma-
nent tax cut is a very real and
dangerous threat, as many in
Congress are supportive of this
proposal that could undermine
Social Security.
High on the list has to be the
Iraq war, which was promoted
.by those elected the past four
years, as well as the five super
rich news media, of which the
cost is beyond the scope of rea-
son, which could collapse our
entire system of government.
High on the list is the
American "Tort System" where
the legislation to destroy it was
written by Haliburton, the com-
pany that received the "secret"
bid to rebuild Iraq even before
the war started, costing the
American public untold tril-
lions of tax dollars, not includ-
ing the millions of deaths and
broken families worldwide.
This company, with its control
it has over the U.S. Senate, is
trying to destroy the rights of
millions of Americans' day in
court.
The belief by the past three
Republican administrations
stating that we have "too much
government" trying to do away
with regulations and doing
nothing to enforce the regula-
tions we already have on the
books; leading to the huge sav-
ings and loans scandal,'under
Reagan and Bush Sr., the huge
bank loans to Sudat and its
huge scandal under George
Bush Sr., loans made against
Congress' advice.
But worst of all the huge loss
of millions of Americans' pri-
vate pensions, their health ben-
efits and their death benefits,
all for the "lack of regulation
enforcement."
And the final huge cost to
America was not "enforcing
the regulation on immigration,"
allowing Americans to be
invaded by foreign powers,
mostly Mexico, this falls on the
shoulders of both the
Republican and Democratic
parties.
These are just a few of the
"scams," against 'the American
public by those who have taken
oaths to protect the American
public.
The best government
"money" can buy and usually
does.

Rice is qualified

for the job

Editor:
As I watched the Condoleeza
Rice hearings recently, I was
appalled by the rude and nasty
remarks made by Barbara
Boxer. As I expected though,
Rice, with her excellent
demeanor and character put her


in her place.
Liberals just do not get it.
Rice is truly one of the finest
women to serve this country.
All one has to do is look at her
amazing background and see
what she has accomplished.
She indeed is an extremely
qualified candidate to fill this
important position.
I can not help but realize that
many of the minority popula-
tion everywhere in this country
of ours will look at people like
Boxer and realize what little
the Democrat Party has done
for them over the past several
decades. The recent election is
testimony to the changing atti-
tude of many minority voters.

Bush bunch is

doing harm

Editor:
I picked up something on my
computer saying that Bush is a
dictator he thought was OK, so
he wants to be a dictator.
The only, thing different
between Hitler and Bush is that
Hitler killed the Jews and Bush
is killing our kids for his war,
not ours. I would not believe a
thing that he says anymore
because I don't believe that he
knows what truth is.
That woman that he is put-
ting in for Powell is going to be
nothing but a puppet for Bush.
I do not know where he's going
to get the money for all he
plans to do. I guess he wants to
cut us older people out of
Social Security and Medicare.
But he will not increase the
taxes on his rich buddies, but
he will increase on the poorer
people.
To me the whole Bush bunch
has done more harm to this
country than most of the presi-
dents we have had. Clinton's
private life was his life even if
he did lie about it. At least we
were not in debt with him. We
would have been better off with
him still in office even with his
private life that was wrong.
When are all of you people
going to wake up and see that
this country has gone to hell
and it will never be able to get
back on the rights of all the
people instead of just the rich?
I am 85 so I do not have too
many more years to worry
about it.
The trouble with this country
is it seems that people do not
want to get involved. This is
our country, not the president's.
Come on let's get involved
and let the president know that
we do not approve of his way
of doing.

Expre sio s o re- pec


'From a comparative perspective, the United States

is unusual if not unique in the lack of restraints on

freedom of expression. It is also unusual in the

range and effectiveness of the methods employed to

restrain freedom of thought.'


NOAM CHOMSKY, linguist, political writer, 1986


me graae
I am not going to apologize
for taking up a few lines to brag
once again about my
children.
This week across the county,
schools recognized students for
good grades and good behavior
during the past quarter.
My daughter, Briana,
received the Thakkar Award at
Avon Park Middle School.
What an honor!
Dr. Vinod Thakkar sponsors
this award to recognize the stu-
dents who excel in leadership,
service, scholarship, and char-
acter. Each quarter, another stu-
dent is chosen.
Briana has often admired the
choice made for the Thakkar
Award and had no idea this
time around she was the chosen
one.
Somehow she manages a 4.0
GPA, plays flute in the concert
band and piano in the jazz
band, is a member of the year-
book staff and National Honor
Society and still manages to
deal with her little brother (I
had one so I know what that's
like). Sometimes she just
amazes me.
Then Daniel was named to
the third-grade honor roll at
Avon Elementary School. He
doesn't make the straight As
that his sister does, but he did
bring two of his Bs from last
quarter up to As this quarter, so
yes, I am equally proud of him.
Yes, I'm bragging, but I
think I have something to brag
about. I'm just not sure where
they get their smarts and tal-
ents.
n
The roads have been a bit
treacherous this past week. I
learned to respect the full moon
years ago when my dad was a
police officer in Illinois.
He pointed out one time to
my mom that when the full
moon is out, there seems to be
a lot of accidents.
I watch the moon and as it
begins to fill out, I start paying
even more attention to the driv-
ers around me.
And it's not just the
motorists that seem to become
more dangerous. There are also
more fires as my ex-husband
has noted.
He once said that a full moon
brings out the worst in people
and I have to agree.
While a full moon .is very
beautiful to look at, I have a lot
of respect for it and just bring
my guard up a little more on all
fronts.
Be careful out there, the
moon is still pretty full.
Besides, we've had a lot of
nasty fog on recent mornings.
n


It's the first of the year and
for my family that means we
will soon be having friends and
family from the north come
down for a visit.
My aunt and uncle are
expected in this weekend.
Hopefully they'll have a good
visit. The last couple of times
they have been down their vis-
its have been cut short or
they've had to deal with fender
benders on their way home.
I always look forward to
their visits. They have eight
children and those children all
have children and even some of
those children now have chil-
dren, so there is always plenty
to hear about.
Uncle Rex is a good story
teller anyway.
Family is so important to us
so I always love the first part of
the year. A new beginning and
visits are just around the corer.

Tie congressional salaries


to the minimum wage


sn-


"Copyrighted Material

Did you know that raising the
minimum wage was a demand of the 0
March on Washington for Jobs and
Freedom where the Rev. Martin
Holi
Luther King Jr. gave his "Dream"
speech? King, A. Philip Randolph
and other leaders of the 1963 March on
Washington demanded "a national minimum
wage act that will give all Americans a
decent standard of living."
They didn't dream that four decades later,
the value of the minimum wage would go
down as the cost of housing, food, health
care and other necessities went up. They did-
n't dream that four decades later, 36 million
Americans would be below the official
poverty line below a decent standard of
living. They didn't dream that four decades
later, the black poverty rate would still be
triple that of whites.
At the time of the March 1963, minimum
wage was $7.80 an hour, adjusting for infla-
tion in 2004 dollars. Today's minimum wage
is far lower just $5.15 an hour. In "Where
Do We Go From Here?" King wrote, "There
is nothing but a lack of social vision to pre-
vent us from paying an adequate wage to
every American citizen whether he be a hos-
pital worker, laundry worker, maid, or day
laborer."
The minimum wage reached its peak
value in 1968, the year King was assassinat-
ed. Today's $5.15 minimum wage is 41 per-
cent less than 1968's inflation-adjusted min-
imum wage of $8.78. Full-time, year-round
minimum wage workers made $18,262 in
1968, adjusting for inflation. Today's full-
time minimum wage workers make just
$10,712 a year. The minimum wage sets the
wage floor. As the floor sinks, millions of
workers find themselves with wages above
the minimum, but not above the poverty
level.
"Business Week" observed last year in a
cover story on the working poor, "Today
more than 28 million people, about a quarter
of the workforce between the ages of 18 and
64, earn less than $9.04 an hour, which
translates into a full-time salary of $18,800 a
year the income that marks the federal


Pi
ly
iY


poverty line for a family of four."
ON ne out of three black workers
NI earns less than $9.04 an hour -
- barely above the value of the min-
Skr imum wage of 1968.
Certainly, King didn't dream
that four decades after the March on
Washington, the U.S. Conference of Mayors
would find in its annual "Hunger and
Homelessness Survey" that 17 percent of the
homeless were employed, as were 34 per-
cent of adults requesting emergency food
assistance.
The last minimum wage increases in
1996-97 were followed by rising incomes
and falling poverty and unemployment
nationwide. We need another boost to the
minimum wage, and the economy. Most
Americans believe a job should keep you out
of poverty, not keep you in it. Most
Americans want to raise the minimum wage
significantly.
Yet, Congress has had seven pay raises
since 1997, when the minimum wage
increased to $5.15, while approving none
since then for minimum wage workers. This
month, congressional pay rose to $162,100 -
way up from $133,600 in 1997. That cumu-
lative pay hike is more than the total earn-
ings of two minimum wage workers.
At the time of the 1963 March on
Washington, members of Congress earned
nine times the pay of minimum wage work-
ers. Now, they earn 15 times as much. To
reverse that growing gap, Congress should
tie their pay raises to raises in the minimum
wage.
Georgia Congressman John Lewis, a
leader of the March on Washington, has said
if King were alive, "he would be in the fore-
front of reminding the government that its
first concern should be the basic needs of its
citizens not just black Americans but all
Americans for food, shelter, health care,
education, jobs, livable incomes and the
opportunity to realize their full potential."

Streaks


shut out


in final

By CHUCKMYRON
Sports Writer
FORT MYERS Lemon
Bay may have won its second
straight District 14-4A champi-
onship Thursday night, but
Sebring won a measure of
respect.
The Lady Blue Streaks gave
up two.goals, but that was the
lowest total given up in three
games against the Manta Rays
this season and head coach
Steve Ashley was pleased with
his team's progress in a 2-0
defeat at
Lemon Bay Riverdale High
S school.
S "They 've
Sebring come together,"
S Ashley said.
"We're a young
Up Next team, actually,
Open playoffs overall with our
on the road starters. We've
Thursday come a long
way."
The goals that. Sebring (14-
5) did allow both came from
outside the penalty box as
Shawona Rocklein took an
assist from Ashley Moore and
deflected off the left post in the
12th minute and Ashley
Osbourne fed Lisa Carroll for
the insurance goal in the 73rd
minute.
"They were long blasts,"
Ashley said. "They could go
either way. They could be
struck and end up over the goal
line or they could be struck and
end up in the goal."

News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK Seven
months, two weeks, six days
and counting. At last, the wait-
ing and anticipation will finally
come to a close today for the
South Florida Community
College Panthers.'
At the start of the 2004 sea-
son, the Panthers had to prove
the previous eight-win season
was just a fluke. This year, they
must prove last spring's 38-win
campaign wasn't.
And so, true to form, simple
curiosity peaks the interest and
begs the question: Just how
good are the 2005 SFCC
Panthers?
Seems like head.coach Rick
Hitt can't avoid that type of
question these days. It's
inescapable after posting the
best record of his five-year
career, finishing ranked sixth in
the state and earning a trip to
the state tournament. And in the
coming weeks,- fans will won-
der whether this year's product
is new-and-improved, or just
new.
Hitt's answer is always the


same.
"Obviously you learn from
every year that you play -,the
good years, the bad years, the
average years, so to speak," Hitt
said. "You learn a little bit, I
think, from every team. I keep
learning.. I think I will forever
until I finish this and when I
stop learning, I should probably
do something else. But it's one
of those things where the
coaching is exactly the same as
it was last year.
"It's obvious that, you know,
we are excited to build upon
last year's year with some of
the things we were able to
accomplish but by the same
token, this is this year's club
and we're going to go with it
that way."
Some of the players are a lit-
tle more eager to perform well.
"It's always good to come
back after a positive year
because we have something
more to look forward to,"
Panther's third basemen/pitcher
Jesse Litsch said. "You want to
go out there and have a good
year and do better than last
year, maybe go to state, maybe

Mulberry knocks out Lake Placid


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK A strong finish couldn't
overcome a slow start for the Lake Placid Lady
Dragons Thursday night.
The Dragons allowed three goals to the
Mulberry Panthers in the first half of their
District 10-3A semifinal match at Joe Franza
Stadium and, despite a late surge that had the
Panthers sweating, saw their season come to an
end with a 4-2 defeat.
"I wish they had played with the same inten-
sity at the beginning of the game as they did at
the end of the game," Lake Placid coach
Elizabeth Sottile said after her team lost in the
district semifinals for the second year in a row.
"Like the refs said and the other team said, we
outplayed them and we outshot them. It was
just a matter of we didn't connect with the ball


in the goal."
The Dragons (10-9) had ample opportunities
to score, but couldn't get on the board until the
final 10 minutes of the game and by then it was
almost too late.
Still, Lake Placid came dan-
Mulberry gerously close to making it a one-
goal game when Cindy Andrade
was taken down in the penalty
Lake Placid box with seven minutes remain-
2 ing, but Mulberry goalkeeper
Jessica Cotterill blocked the shot
and most of the Dragons' chance
at a miracle comeback.
The rest of that chance at a miracle disap-
peared just minutes later when Emberly
Mihlfead got a shot at an open net and put it

go to the World Series."
"I'm looking forward to it,"
infielder Trey Cleveland of
Sebring said. "We have more of
a team concept, playing as a
team and just looking to have a
good season. Of course (there's
urgency). I mean, who doesn't
want to go (to the World
Series)? I'm looking forward to
it and hopefully we make it that
far."
Probably the best part of a
community college team is the
fact that players can afford to
have a short memory. None of
the members of this year's ros-
ter were part of the 2003 deba-
cle. Thirteen were on last year's
crew.
"We've got all the pieces,"
freshman catcher Charles
Heston of Avon Park said.
"We've just got to put them
together. We've got the No. 1
pitcher in the state (Litsch)
coming back. Hopefully he'll
have another good year and
some other people will step up,
too."
Litsch was the state Pitcher

Speck fishing

still slow on

Istokpoga
This past Saturday, Patti and
Terry Trimble caught seven
bass while fishing out of
Henderson's Fish Camp on
Lake Istokpoga where Terry is
the manager of the camp and
the tackle shop. They topped '"'.
their stringer off with a 5: '''
pounder after spending four to
five hours on the lake. What
bass they managed to catch
were taken by flipping plastic
lizards in and around the pen-
cil weeds.
It seems the bass are a little
lethargic right now due to the
cold temperature of the water.
And how about that wind in
the last few days? It has made
for rough going out on the
water and that has kept a lot of
the guys off the lakes.
According to Janice Albin
down at Trails End Fishing
Resort, the fishing there has
been a little slow, but The
American
Bass
Anglers
held a
tourna-
ment on
Istokpoga
last week- ,
end. They -
had a -
three-bass OUTDOORS
limit, and
Janice said Lloyd Jones
the winner,
Buddy
McDuffie, brought three bass
to the scales that totaled 27
pounds. The largest one topped
12 pounds. Now, that's the
kind of guy I want to go
fishing' with.
I was talking to Phil
Ormsby, a crappie enthusiast,
who lives in the DeSoto
Mobile Home Park. Phil, like
several other fishermen living
there, hasn't been out on the
water much this past week.
The park had a lot of dam-
age due to the hurricanes and
the folks there are just now
beginning to get materials for
the necessary repair work.
Between that and visits to his
doctor, he is waiting for the
weather and the water to warm
up. Sounds like a good idea,
Phil.
Robert Windham gave me
the lowdown on crappie fish-
ing. Rob fishes at night. He is
catching specks while the fel-
lows fishing during the day-
light hours are having trouble
even finding fish. He has his
boat rigged with lights espe-
cially for night fishing. I think
he fishes out of Neiberts'
Fishing Resort.

County Senior Softball action on Thursday.
Winning pitcher was Chuck Detore, whor also
had six hits, including three doubles. Juan

tributed three doubles for Alan Jay.

On Tuesday, the Amvets nipped Alan Jay, 25-

potential double play. The strategy backfired,
when the winning run scored on a walk.

four hits, Tom McNally had three hit, one an
out-of-the-park home run, and Gary Luziano,

Leading the way for the Securitymen (6-0)
were Cal Bready and Gary Van with four hits

shot over the left-field fence in the fourth
inning, was the big blow for Central. AMS (3-
3) was paced by Pete Ilg with five hits, Don
Thomas, Don Cunningham, and Victor
Rodriguez had four hits each and Eli Rivera
smashed a home run in the losing effort.
In another tight contest on Wednesday, Yates
Insurance (2-4) bested Seminole Tire, 16-15, as

defense to score three runs in the bottom of the
ninth. Ray Hensley tallied the winning run after

victory. Bob Sheets had a double, triple, and
home run for Yates. Glenn Minnick and Charlie

tively passive at the plate with the exception of

bles.

SPECKS
Continued from 1B
We had a full moon on Tuesday, and if the
water hadn't cooled down so much, the speck
fishing would have been much better during the
day. But Rob says that the full moon is not good
for the night fisherman. He thinks that by
tonight, the night fishing will be much better.
The sun will sink just a little after 6 p.m. and the
moon will rise about 9:20 p.m. He tells me that
those three hours of darkness should be a good
time to fill your stringer with crappies.
Hopefully, the wind will not be a factor by then.
Make n6te of this and try to get out there.
You may have guessed that my favorite fish-
ing spot is Lake Istokpoga. I live very close to
this big, beautiful, 28,000-acre lake. I have
fished most of the lakes in Highlands county
along with several bass catching trips on the
Kissimmee River and Arbuckle Creek. The
anglers living here are really blessed with the
best fishing waters anywhere in our country.

Carlos Hernandez and sopho-
more first basemen Tim
Graeser and Brad Crone.
"We have a couple of scenar-
ios at.second base," Hitt said.
"We're looking at Carlos
Hernandez, who is returning
from last year's team. He's,a
guy who spot played for us and
did a good job. He's a guy with
game experience in the confer-
ence.
"And then we have Barry
Padgett, a freshman, and Trey
Cleveland, who is actually in
his second year but is a fresh-
man in terms of playing based
on some unfortunate scenarios-
for him. So we have a few guys
we feel comfortable at second
base with who will probably get
some time."
For some of the freshman
like Heston, this is a learning
process, and there's not better
time than now to have one.
"Learning process, yes. Yes it
is," Heston said. "And a mental
process, I guess you would call
it. You've got to be able to be at
a certain place at a certain time,


do certain things, and just be
more organized.
"I think we've got a bunch of
confidence," he added. "I mean,
if we just go out there and
everyone does their job, we'll
win games."
SFCC kicks off its campaign
today at Lake City another
state tournament qualifier from
last season today, the start of
a four road games in five days
to open the season.
"From what I've heard, Lake
City is a real good team, a lot of
draft picks," Beumel said. "But
I don't know. With Litsch on
the mound, and the way we've
been playing and practicing I
think we have a good shot
against them."
"I told the players several
times I don't think it's any
secret, it's relatively easy to get
your players up for the first
game because they're excited
about it," Hitt said. "I think it's
easy to prepare for the first
game, but.what we try to do is
not only prepare for the first
one in the last three and a half
weeks, but prepare for the other
55 as well."
No question about it.

Moore was nonetheless satis-
fied with his second straight
district title.
"I'm glad it wasn't one in a
row, obviously," he said. "I
don't think it was one of our
better games."
The top-seeded Manta Rays
(15-9) charged out strong, get-
ting off eight shots in the first
27 minutes including
Rockline's goal and did pot
allow Sebring its first shot until
the 33rd minute.
"We came out, I think, a little
conservative in the first half,"
Ashley said. "That was to be
expected. We knew we were
trying to contain them."
In the latter stages of the first
half, and for most of the second
half, Sebring largely played
even with Lemon Bay. Moore
said the reason his team fell off
from its hot start was because
of poor positioning by the mid-
fielders.
"I think our center-mids sort
of disappeared," he said. "It
wasn't due to lack of effort, but
you can't lose a midfield play-
er."
Ashley said he thought
Moore might have been getting


anxious.
"I can't read the team or the
coach, but he seemed to be
starting to get a little antsy,
maybe a little frustrated,
because we seemed to be shut-
ting down a lot of their rushes
up front," Ashley said.
One change Moore made in
the second half may have
helped keep Sebring from
cracking the scoreboard.
"(With) about 20 minutes left
in the game we switched. We
had been playing a 3-4-3 and
we switched to the 4-4-2. Not
that we're looking to get more
defensive, but that's what we
pretty much played all year."
While Moore may not have
seen his team's best effort
Thursday night, he didn't need
it.
"I'm actually happy it was a
nice tight game like this," he
said, pointing to next week's
state playoff game against the
loser of the District 13 final
between St. Petersburg
Lakewood and Seminole
Osceola.
"I think that would be the last
thing I would have wanted,
them going into next week's
game with big heads."
Sebring will play at the win-
ner of that game Thursday
night.

Jack Wagner is a fishing guide who also likes
to fish at night. Living on a canal leading into
the big lake, he can be on the lake within a few
minutes. Jack likes to take parties crappie fish-
ing in his large comfortable pontoon boat. While
he does fish during the day, he prefers night
fishing.
He tells me that night fishing produces more
specks and much larger specks. Right now, the
crappies are on the'nest up in the pads and
weeds. Most catches now are male fish. The
larger females will be coming off the nest soon
and they will be hungry, thereby making them a
lot easier to catch.
If you are inclined to savor a crappie dinner,
you might give Jack a call. I don't think he will
mind if I give you his phone number, 655-5852.
I also hope to go fishing with Jack. When the
specks get off the beds and the big females are
minnow hunting, I want to be there on Lake
Istokpoga.

Peace River

needs help

with donations
The phone rings and a
frantic caller at the other
end of the phone responds
hysterically, "Help me! He's
going to kill me ... I have
nowhere to stay ... I have no
money ... He has drained
the gas from my car ... I
have nothing. Can someone
help me ... anyone ... help
me?" This call is typical.of
the many crisis calls fielded
at the Peace River Safe
House.
Nearly 400 women and
children received secured
accommodations from the
Peace River's temporary
residential program known
as the Safe House. When
these women and children
flee their abusers in the
middle of night, Peace
River is the only agency
that will accommodate them
free of charge, while pro-
viding basic necessities.
Currently, the Safe House
is in need of toiletries which
includes but not limited to,
bar soaps, deodorants, hand
and body lotion, wash
cloths, bath towels, new
underwear for adults and
children and socks. All the
supplies given to the clients
who seek refuge at the Safe
House must be new.
Nothing is recycled.
In an effort to further
upgrade the security system,
an appeal also is being
made for a donated "securi-
ty camera system and inter-
com." Prepaid phone cards,
prepaid cards for gasoline,
and prepaid store cards also
,are on the Safe House=wish
- list.
Peace River is a non-
profit agency, therefore
funds given is taxed
deductible. To donate items,
call the Safe House at 386-
1167.
Remember, every 15
minutes a woman is beaten
in this country. Domestic
violence is a plague, which

Club perpetuates age old art of china painting in community


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
T he Lake Placid China Painters
Club has been carrying on the
art of china painting since its
inception in 1974, when it
was founded by Bertha Webb.
The club is part of the World
Organization of China Painters. The
corporate headquarters is in Oklahoma
City, Okla., where it was founded in
1967, by Pauline A. Slayer, whose pas-
sion for the art motivated her to spread
the love of china painting to others
throughout the world. The non-profit
organization is dedicated to the appreci-
ation and enrichment of the fine art of
painting on porcelain. Currently, the
organization has approximately 7,000
members from around the world and 21
of them are members of the Lake Placid
branch.
Members of the Lake Placid club are
anticipating the state convention in St.
.Petersburg this weekend, where,
according to club president Margaret
Nipper, people come from all over the
world to learn from other painters and
share their enthusiasm with other mem-
bers of the organization.
Every month the club has guest
teachers of the art of china painting
come to their meeting to teach a lesson.
This month that teacher was a china
painter from Lakeland, Helen Cork.
Through these monthly demonstrations,
members learn new techniques and
improve their skills.
Nipper has been a member of the
local organization since around 1990.


Marie Ailor shades in a leaf on her trillium flower. Trillium flowers come in parts of
three and in some cases are an endangered plant.


"At that time," she said that there
were several ladies at her Lake Placid
church, St. Francis Episcopal Church,
who were members of the club and she
and another friend decided to go and try
it out. "Marie Anderson, founder of the
Lake Placid Library, was my teacher at
the time and she was one of the original
charter members of the organization.


She's a lovely person and was into
everything," Nipper shared. Since that
time 15 years ago, Nipper has contin-
ued to remain a member of the club and
said that she "thoroughly enjoys it."
In addition to the monthly lessons,
the club also has a class for children,
which is held at the Caladium Arts and
Crafts Cooperative in Lake Placid. The


class was originally started by Mary
Lou Krog, who has since died. She was
very well regarded, however, and rib-
bons are awarded in her honor at the
annual Lake Placid Arts and Crafts
Country Fair. Her picture also is fea-
tured on a mural of a country fair, one
of many murals throughout the town of
Lake Placid. The children's class Krog
began is now taught by china painting
artist, Chris Phillips.
, China painting is a fine art and is an
in'. ol d process which u.iiull requires
multiple firings of each piece in a kiln.
Firings are done between stages of
painting to permanently bind the paint
to the porcelain. According to informa-
tion found at
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/3543/in
dex.html, the art dates back to 1400 AD
and was begun by Chinese artists dur-
ing the Ming Dynasty. Though it had
grown in popularity and quality chi-
naware was in high demand, it wasn't
until 1769 that fine white china was
actually produced in the United States.
Since that time, however, chinaware has
continued to be produced and has
remained popular.
It is through organizations such as
the Lake Placid China Painting Club
that the art of painting porcelain has
continued to thrive and to grow. With
such dedication to this age old art, there
is no doubt that it will be handed down
from generation to generation for all of
time.
Members of the Lake Placid China
Painting Club will once again be dis-
playing their wares at the annual Lake
Placid Arts and Crafts Country Fair.
This year's fair will be Feb. 5-6.
Anyone interested in more informa-
tion about the club or membership can
call 465-2256.

DIVERSIONS


Big production disguises 'Phantom's' small plot


By SHARON JONES
Nwcts-Sun
Somehow, the big screen magnifies the
deficiencies of Andrew Lloyd Webber's
sensational musical, "The Phantom of the
Opera."
Director Joel Schumacher fills his
"Phantom' with all of Lloyd Webber trade-
marks big costumes, big sets and big
musical numbers. Perhaps on the stage, the
massive production and the energy of live
performance masks the creaky plot and
cardboard characters. On screen, it's a bore
- an overwrought, outdated Freudian exer-
cise in virtuous love versus dark desire, an
over-sexed movie in which there's no sex at
all.
This adaptation of Gaston Leroux's
famous 19th century novel centers around
the curious goings-on at the fictional Opera
Populaire. There, Christine, a young, beau-
tiful and pure-hearted ingenue, becomes the
obsession of a mysterious phantom. He vis-
its her at night, teaches her to sing and lures
her to his dark, underground lair with
seductive songs that promise never-ending
physical pleasure.
Friends think the phantom is a "fantasy"
that Christine has made up in one famous
number, even she sings of him being
"inside her mind." He proves to be too real
when he gets in the way of her upcoming
marriage to Raoul an attractive viscount
who offers her a life of safety, security,
devotion and, very likely, never-ending
boredom. When Raoul finds out the phan-
tom is menacing his beloved, his brusque
solution hunt it down and shoot it -
reveals his simple, unconflicted mind.
So what's a nice girl to do when she's
caught between a mysterious and virile fan-


'THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA'
Director: Joel Schumacher
Writers: Andrew Lloyd Webber; based on
the novel by Gaston Leroux
Cast: Gerard Butler (The Phantom), Emmy
Rossum (Christine), Patrick Wilson (Raoul),
Miranda Richardson (Madame Giry) and
Minnie Driver (Carlotta)
Released by: Warner Bros. (2004)
Running time: 2 hours, 23 minutes
Rated: PG-13 for brief, violent images
Now playing: Carmike Cinema 8 at
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

tasy lover and bland but proper prospective
husband? In "Phantom," she spends two-
and-a-half hours vacillating back and forth
between her choices pledging her undy-
ing love to Raoul but swooning at the phan-
tom's feet every time lusty songs pour out
of his mouth.
Eventually, Christine discovers that the
phantom is not only a sexual beast he's a
monster in his actions as well as his looks.
Conveniently, this revelation comes just in
the nick of time saving the heroine from
his clutches and giving her a reason to
revile him instead of reviling herself for
losing all self-control whenever she comes
into his presence.
Like the stage musical, the movie ver-
sion benefits from a sleight of hand for a
time that comes from sets and costumes
rich enough in detail to earn "Phantom" an
Oscar nomination for artistic design. But
after about 90 minutes, when the trio of
lovers are still danging around in circles,
the lovely presentation starts cracking at the


seems and there's still nearly an hour to
go.
In "The Phantom of the Opera," the sub-
stantial virtuous characters are dull and the
inconsequential, nasty characters are lively.
Patrick Wilson and Emmy Rossum, both
trained singers, wilt in their roles as the
shallow conventional lovers, who seem to
have nothing better to do than pine for each
other. On the other hand, Scottish actor
Gerard Butler (the star of "Dracula 2000")
is charismatic probably because his con-
flicted, angry phantom is the movie's only
interesting role. Minnie Driver, the actress
turned pop singer, is a comic diversion as
she plays a self-absorbed Italian diva with
gusto and spunk.
Addingto the tediousness is the music.
Once the characters launch into song, many
of the words become indecipherable.
"Masquerade," one of the most famous
numbers, is noticeably infected with this
problem, but the solos suffer as well.
As the production wears on, it works
itself into a lather and into a grand finale
that is as ridiculous as it is overstaged. Even
the odd and ironic final shot suggests that
the nice guy finally realizes, over the course
of a lifetime, that he wasn't the love of his
wife's life.
The saving grace is the knowledge that
movie tickets are a fraction of the cost of
the live theater performance. And movie
prices are about what it's worth to take a
gander at "The Phantom of the Opera."

By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
A racehorse of a different stripe takes to
the screen in "Racing Stripes."
In this new Warner Bros. kids' picture, a
talking zebra becomes a racetrack sensa-
tion. While this gimmicky adventure has
talking animals and a wild premise, the
characters are shallow, the plot is thin and
the dialogue is simplistic. It's PG rated, due
to the suggested violence and some mild
potty humor, but its intelligence quotient
should get a D for dumb.
"Racing Stripes" has two attractions -
the novelty of a talking, racing zebra and
hugely famous actors in the voice parts.
-Warner Bros. seems to be doing everything
it can to draw adult audiences by promoting
the voice stars Dustin Hoffman! Whoopi
Goldberg! Jeff Foxworthy! Joe Pantoliano!
- but if you fall for it, you will be sorry.
The trite, tiring story involves a zebra
who wants to be a race horse and a teenage
girl who wants to be a jockey. The zebra
has to contend with thoroughbreds who
think he's a kooky little critter, and the girl
has to convince her dad (Bruce


Greenwood) a trainer who quit when his
wife was killed by a horse that she needs
to follow her dreams.
Most of the film is ridiculous, but it isn't
the part you'd expect watching chicken
and goats move their lips like people as
they give big speeches about having the
heart to go for your dreams. The ridiculous
part and the most oddly fascinating is
seeing the little zebra waddle around with a
a large teenager on his back. If Hayden
Panettiere didn't have her feet in the stir-
rups, I think they'd be dragging on the
ground.
Even when this zebra is running by him-
self, he doesn't seem especially fast. You'd
think that if computer animation can make
mosquitoes roll around in horse poop, it
could light a fire under a live animal who's
being celebrated for his speed.
"Racing Stripes" has the appeal and
intelligence of a Saturday morning cartoon,
and it makes and hour and a half drag on for
an eternity. It has more than its share of vul-
gar humor, which detracts from any of the
small pleasures it might offer. If you must
see it to satisfy your kids underscore

Believers in Christ are God's children


Who is a true child of God?
Jesus once said, "Who is my
mother, and who are my broth-
ers? Pointing to his disciples, he
said, 'Here are my mother and
my brothers. For whoever does
the will of my Father in heaven
is my brother and sister and
mother.'" (Matthew 48-49)
Here we see whom God's Son
calls his brother. Jesus has
clearly given this designation to
his disciples.
And what makes a person a
disciple of Christ? The life of
any disciple would show us.
But to see it most clearly, let's
look at one in particular.
His story takes us back to our
Lord's crucifixion on Calvary,
A crowd of people had gathered
about Jesus there, jeering him,
mocking him deriding him. And
the Scriptures tell us, "In the
same way the robbers who were
crucified with him also heaped
insults on him" (Matthew
27:44). But during the course of
that day, a miraculous change
took place in one of those
thieves.
This thief had until then
rejected both the Scriptures and
Christ. But now, as the last
fleeting minutes of his criminal
life were slipping away, as he
watched with increasing won-
der the perfect submission with
which this Jesus of Nazareth


placed himself at '-
death's disposal and '
heard his pious
words-God's Holy
Spirit, gained a :
foothold in his stony
heart. Soon he real-
ized what was hap- '
opening on the cross
next to his: There, as
the Scriptures had A M
foretold, was the sin-
less Servant of God, WITH
suffering silently for
transgressions he had Rev. 1
c o m m i t t e d !
Believing this, the
dying thief became a
disciple of Christ.
All around him the mocking
and jeering still continued, but
this man no longer joined in.
Instead, when his fellow crimi-
nal derided Christ again, he
rebuked him sharply, at the
same time making a penitent
confession of his own sins and
unworthiness. Then, in humble,
childlike faith, he turned to
Jesus and pleaded, "Lord,
remember me when you come
into your kingdom." And Jesus
answered, "Today you will be
with me in paradise!"
What caused Christ to
acknowledge this dying crimi-
nal as a disciple and a brother?
Certainly not his works, for the
thief had lived a life of utter sin-
fulness. Rather, it was his faith.
Faith had grasped the free for-

giveness of sins
which Christ had
come to bestow upon
all men.
Yes, faith and faith
alone. For to all who
receive him he gave
the power to become
the "sons of God,"
that is, to all who
believe in his name.
Even today Jesus
points to believers
and says, "Behold,
these are my brothers
and sisters!" Through
faith in him, your sins
are forgiven and you


are assured a place in the eter-
nal kingdom of God in heaven.
Jesus died for the sins of all
people on that cross.
Now you can have this same
forgiveness when you believe
in him and all that he has done
for you. As Paul said to the jail-
er at Philippi when he asked
what he must do to be saved,
Paul replied, "Believe in the
Lord Jesus, and you will be
saved." (Acts 16:31) Now is the
time for you to take the words
of Jesus to heart as when he
said to Thomas, "Stop doubting
and believe." (John 20:27)
