SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 23/NUMBER 37


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING He thought
he had the flu but what
Ray Ostlund really had was a
problem caused by mold.
Medical officials say the
malady, commonly referred
to as "mold poisoning" can
cause constant irritation to the
bronchial tubes.
He reportedly picked up
the spores from the office of
his business Dual Neon,
which sustained significant
damage when the hurricanes
hit Highlands County.
Health officials said in
order for a formal diagnosis'
of mold infection, people
need to be seen by a pul-
monary specialist
One mold infection, blasto-
mycosis, is caused by inhal-
ing microscopic particles
known as spores that are pro-

SEBRING A very special
guest will be on hand for this
year's Law Day ceremonies.
Florida Supreme Court Chief
Justice Barbara J. Pariente has
confirmed she will be in Sebring
on April 21 to give the keynote
address.
Speaking on behalf of the Law
Day Coordinating Committee,
Janette Branham said the group
had made a conscious decision to
try and bring a Florida Supreme
Court Justice here for the event.
"We drafted a letter to Justice
Pariente back in November,
requesting her presence,"
Branham said. "Then later, Judge


duced by fungus.
The infection may be limit-
ed to the lungs but also may
involve the skin and/or bones.
In its most severe form, the
infection can spread through-
out the body and involve
many organ systems.
Experts say that once
inhaled, the spores can lodge
in the lungs and cause a local-
ized inflammation.
Fortunately, the disease
does not spread from one per-
son to another.
Like Ostlund, people may
believe they simply have a
cold.
In the early stages, symp-
toms may include a dry
cough, fever, heavy sweating,
fatigue, and a general feeling
of ill health.
If not corrected, the malady
can get much worse. Officials

David Langford tendedd a semi-
nar where she was and made con-
tact with her A.,id gave her a :ii
sonal invitation'..
This past week organizers
received the confirmation that she
would attend.
Pariente's appearance here
reportedly will mark the first time
a sitting Florida Supreme Court
Justice has visited Highlands
County.
"The law library is named after
Parker Lee McDonald and he
came for our very first Law Day,
but he was retired," Branham said.
Pariente was appointed as the
77th Justice of the Florida
Supreme Court in 1997.

SEBRING After Christmas, Highlands County
residents may have seen young motorcyclists riding
up and down neighborhood street.
Only these vehicles may have been mini-motorcy-
cles, also called "pocket bikes." At one-fifth the scale
of normal motorcycles around 47 inches long and
18 inches tall and small enough to carry under an
arm, they look just like their larger cousins, but are
powerful toys.
Gasoline powered models can travel between 35-
50, mph. European models may cost up to $3,000,
while electric or gasoline-powdered Asian-built mod-
els may cost $250. For about $275, a popular dis-
count retailer offers the electric Honda Minimoto
Maxii Bike. One of 2004's hottest gift items for kids
age 10-14, it's built to accommodate larger and older
children, has 13-inch pneumatic tires, a top speed of
10 mph, and runs on a 36-volt battery.
Consumer concern
Users should be aware, however, that the bikes
aren't allowed on public roads. According to
Consumer Reports and local law enforcement, the
bikes are too low to be seen and next to impossible to
handle safely.
"(The bikes) are so low you'd see a pedestrian
before them, or someone on a tricycle," said Avon
Park Police Officer Tamara Neale.
She said public right of ways are off limits to a
non-registered motor vehicle, such as a dirt bike, Go-
ped, all-terrain vehicle or pocket bike. Big problems

raphy, Pariente has worked to
improve methods for handling
cases involving families and chil-
dren in the courts.
She also served as both liaison
and then the chair of the Supreme
Court's Steering Committee on
Families and Children in the
Courts.
In that role, she met with family
court judges and staffs throughout
Florida's judicial circuits, promot-
ed judicial education on the uni-
fied family court and advocated
for improved case management,
case coordination, and non-adver-
sarial methods of resolving these
disputes.

With the day warming up nicely, crowds of people turned out to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of
the Lake Placid Country Fair Saturday. With craftsmen displaying their wares, lots of singers and
dancers, and food provided by local churches and service agencies, there was something to please every
taste.


FCAT primer

Parents can help students

prepare for the FCAT
* Test schedule, 7A ,
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING The three most important things par-'
ents can do to prepare their children for the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test: Ensure ,a good
night's sleep, provide a well-balanced breakfast, and
be on time.
While all tests for particular grade levels are given
on the same day, a school's administration may choose
when in the course of the day the test will be given. No
two schools, therefore, have exactly the same daily
schedule, but the tests are typically administered early
in the morning.
Becky Fleck is calm and optimistic. She is coordi-
nator of the department of management information
services, the district department that is responsible fpr
the administration of the FCAT.
"Really, we just want parents to encourage their
children to prepare well, to take the test seriously and
do their best, but not to be afraid of (the test)," she
said. "They have been well prepared for it."
Students have been working with sample books. of)
the FCAT Explorer site on the Internet, for e\jmple,
and those students who will be using a calculator dur-
ing the test have been working now with the make and
model to be distributed then.
"Taking the FCAT is not the ideal time to use a new
calculator for the first time," Fleck said. Having devel-
oped a familiarity with the testing materials, students
can remain calm and-do well.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Administering the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test to the students of
Highlands County, is as unwieldy a task as saying its
name.
In addition to the county's 15 schools, sites are set
up for individuals who are seeking FCAT certification,
but are not traditional students, are newly arrived in
the state, or who have special needs.
Test materials are delivered to the district offices of
the School Board of Highlands County, where they are
sorted out, registered, and distributed to the 18 test
sites around the county.
It is up to each individual school to secure its mate-
rials and administer the test. The school has some dis-
cretion in terms of planning the daily schedule, but it
is the state that sets the calendar. This year, the test was
delayed a week in response to the disruptions of the
hurricane season.
Each test kit is coded to the student using it, so the
data generated by the test can be put to use.
Once the test has been taken, the material has to be
sorted several times, beginning at the school where
material that does not count in the scoring of the test is
separated from the materials that will be scored.

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING More ques-
tions are being raised by local
activist Preston Colby over the
tabulation of votes in the last
general election.
In response, Highlands
County Supervisor of Elections
Joe Campbell apparently has
sought direction from Florida
Division of Elections Director
Dawn Roberts on a number of
issues raised by Colby.
Among other things
Campbell has asked who can be
in the tabulation room if it is
only being used for tabulation,
who can be in the room if it is
being used both for tabulation
and the inspection of ballots,
and how much can members of
the public intervene before they
may be removed.


Campbell also asked if the
room is only used for tabula-
tion, then would it be legal to
simply allow people to observe
the process through a window
or whether it was incumbent on
the supervisors' office to also
provide audio equipment so that
the public could hear the pro-
ceedings and ask questions.
Direction on the question of
who is and who is not permitted
to handle ballots also was
addressed in Campbell's letter.
He asked for direction on
everything from the duplication
of absentee ballots to simply
feeding ballots into a tabulating
machine.
Many of the questions arose
after an incident last November,
where Colb w jas ejected from a
room in Campbell's office,
which was being used both for


vote tabulation and the public
inspection of ballots.
In his letter to Roberts,
Campbell maintained that so
many questions had been asked
about the procedures that night
that a majority of the board
members voted to have him
removed.
Later, Colby had requested to
be able to hear what decisions
were being made, but the inter-
com system was inadequate.
He later was allowed back in
to the room.
Campbell said the dual use of
the room for both tabulation
and inspection had caused
many of the problems.
"In a public inspection of the
ballots, you have to let the pub-
lic in but yet, in the tabula-
tion room, representatives of
the two political parties are per-


Balloons instead of roses?


mitted to be in but I don't know
if the tabulating room is open to
the public," he said.
In short, Campbell said that
the problem is a logistical one,
exacerbated by a lack of space.
"If we need to move the pub-
lic inspection to a different
room, we may have to do that,"
he said. "It's something we
have to look at."
Campbell emphasized that he
did not request a formal opinion
on the questions form the divi-
sion of elections but only for
guidance on the matter.
It may be a while before the
answers are forthcoming,
Roberts reportedly has been in
Washington for meetings this
past week.
"The questions Mr. Colby
asks are good ones," Campbell
said.

Council sponsors
SEBRING The Heartland
Cultural Alliance and the
Florida Humanities Council are
sponsoring a Humanities Grant
Writing, workshop from 1-3
p.m. Friday, Feb. 25. at the Drs.
Thakkar pavilion at Highlands
Little Theatre.
The workshop is free and
open to members of all non-
profit organizations interested
in having a public humanities
program. Susan Lockwood,
FHC grants director, will dis-
cuss applying for grands, cur-
rent council initiatives, and
accessing free programs that
are available from the FHC


The answers might not be so
simple or inexpensive.
"A lot of supervisors of elec-
tions are buying old grocery
stores. When they get done they
have their warehouse, their
training center they have
everything in the same build-
ing," Campbell said.
The Highlands County
Canvassing Board last week
voted to seek an opinion from
the office of Florida Attorney
General Charlie Crist on
whether or not minutes from
previous canvassing boards
may be reconstituted from court
reporter transcripts and whether
the current board could approve
the minutes of meetings in
which they were not in atten-,

Campaign

begins to make

Sebring 'most

patriotic place'

News-Sun,
It is the personal goal of
Claude Presley to make
Sebring the "most patriotic
small city" in the United States,
and one house at a time he is
starting to make it happen.
"Whoever says you cannot.
love your god, your country,
your flag, did not know what
they were talking about,"
Presley said.
Out of his own patriotism,
Presley is offering free of
charge his services to install
flagpoles around the city. It
doesn't matter if it is in a busi-
ness yard or a residential yard
or if it's even a wall-mounted
pole. He'll do the work for the
sheer pleasure of seeing anoth-
er Old Glory fly proudly.
Poles, he said, can be bought
at Ace Hardware, Sam's Club
or from the Sebring Veterans of
Foreign Wars Post 4300. In
addition to the pole, Presley
said all he needs is two bags of
cement and the work can be
considered done.
Presley served in World War
II, Korea and Vietnam.
"My ambition is to install a
flag for every American citizen
killed in Iraq," he said. "There
is no higher honor than when a
man sacrifices his life for his
country. We have more individ-
ual freedom in America than
the rest of the world put togeth-
er. Let's enjoy it all and be
thankful for it we may not
have it forever."
Anyone wishing to take
advantage of Presley's offer
should call 385-0658.

Camper knocked over in T-bone wreck


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A 94-year-old
driver, although transported to a
hospital Friday, appeared most-
ly OK after his camper gol
knocked over in a T-bone
wreck.
At about 10:33 a.m. Friday,
Herbert L. Dewitt of Sebring
attempted to cross the south-
bound lanes at the junction of
U.S. 27 and Whisper Lake
Boulevard.
When he did, he pulled into
the path of a southbound gray
Chevrolet Trailblazer, driven by
Wallace Crockatt, 70, of
Hancock, Mich. The sport utili-
ty vehicle hit the Toyota
Winnebago camper broadside.
The impact knocked the camper
over on the driver's side, shat-
tered the windshield and spilled
fuel on the pavement.
Firefighters from the West
Sebring and Sun 'N Lake vol-
unteer fire departments soaked
the area around the camper and
then covered the area with dry-
ing agent to contain the spill.
Both drivers appeared OK
after the wreck without visi-
.ble injuries or complaints of
,pain. Highlands County

:Art League to give digital


S, shutterbugs some assistance


Photos by BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING News-Sun
photographer Susan Foster will
be teaching a course on digital
photography at the Highlands
Art League.
The class will be both for
people who want to take better
pictures for their photo albums
as well as artists who may want
to take pictures as subjects of
later paintings.
In many cases, the camera
may be used in much the same
way as a painter uses a brush or
a sculptor uses a chisel to
achieve a work of art. Foster
said some of her course would
be dedicated to artists who want
to capture a scene so that they
can later translate it to canvas
by using oil paints, acrylics or
watercolors.
It might seem that artists
would be natural photogra-
phers. But Foster said in fact,
the principles that govern the
natural laws of photography are
almost the exact opposite of
those that govern the laws of
artistry and painting or draw-
ing.
For instance, while light is a
photographer's best friend -
artists many times rely on shad-
ow to apply depth and percep-
tion to their paintings.
One of the reasons the class
developed is due to the fact that
digital cameras are even more
dependent on light than film-
type cameras.
The workshop will begin
with a brief history of photogra-
phy.
"Teaching the principles of
photography is much easier if it
is done through the develop-
ment of the camera box the


lens, chemical plates and
color," Foster said. "But the
digital camera has brought pho-
tographers into a whole new
ball game."
The second part of the three-
phase workshop will deal with
the most abused and neglected
part of all equipment, namely
the owner's manual.
"There is a way to read any
manual, that will help almost
anyone to better understand its
purpose and instructions,"
Foster said. "However, most
people don't read their camera
manuals because they get lost in
the lingo."
She said the writers of cam-
era manuals apparently auto-
matically assume that the own-
ers know and understand such
terms as pixels, white balance,
depth of field, or 3X.
"There is a difference
between telephoto lens and the
zoom lens found on many digi-
tal cameras and a lot of people
don't know that," Foster said.
As an added bonus for pho-


tographers, Foster will include
a glossary of camera terms with
the session so that those who
take the course can later deci-
pher photographic instructions.
The final part of the work-
shop will deal with the camera's
ability to photograph different
types of light such as ambient,
artificial and flash or strobe
light.
This will be a hands-on
learning experience where pho-
tographers can take photos of
objects and landscape with dif-
ferent light qualities.
"We've had a lot of requests
for this class," Highlands Art
League Administrative
Manager Mary Schuessler said .
"People thought it would be a
great idea.
The class will be held from 9
a.m. to noon Thursday at the
Yellow House in the Highlands
Art League's Artists Village. It
is one of a number of different
instructional offered by the' art
league.

Kids flock


for chance


at Junior


Idol title
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING More that 100
people turned out on the Circle
in downtown Sebring to view
the debut of the Junior Idol
competition last Thursday
night.
Like last year's Heartland
Idol competition organized by
the Sebring Downtown
Merchants and Professional
Association and sponsored by
numerous organizations, there
were a few technical glitches,
which caused the program to
get started a bit late.
In all, there were 20 young-
sters in the two different age
groups that competed for the
first finalist slots.
"That was way up from the
first 'Idol," organizer Diana
Hirsch said.
There was backup music
provided for the contestants by
the Hardee County-based
Western 'Pleasure. But in an
effort to move the proceedings
along more quickly, songs still
were cut to about two minutes.
Having the recorded music is
one reason Hirsch has asked for
early registrations. Some of the
contestants brought their own
CD's with which to sing along.
Judges had words of encour-
agement overall for the young
participants. In the end, five
finalists were picked from each
of two age divisions.
In the junior category -
Bethany Music of Sebring, 10;
Asia Grace of Sebring, 8;
Madison Harris of Sebring, 10;
Micaela DeVane of Sebring, 8,
and Elizabeth Walker of
Sebring, 12 made the cut.
In the pre-teen category -
Brittany Turner of Avon Park,
15; Lauren Raulerson of
Wauchula, 15; Casey Laughlin
of Avon Park, 14; Deanna
Barrera of Sebring, 13, and
Summer Smith of Sebring, 15
were selected as finalists.
The second and final prelim-
inary round will be on
Thursday, Feb. 17.
"It's $10 for the initial sign
up. and $5 if they want to try
again, just like the Heartland
Idol contest," Hirsch said.
The finals will be held on
Thursday, March 3.

Master flower show judge prepares for program


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING
Flowers have been an
important cultural element
throughout the history of
mankind; as they have been
used to express feelings,
enhance surroundings, and to
commemorate rituals and
observances.
In keeping with the National
Garden Clubs Inc., mission
statement, .. to provide
education, resources, and
national networking opportuni-
ties for its members to promote
the love of gardening, floral
design, civic and environmen-
tal responsibility," the Sebring
Garden Club, which is a feder-
ated garden club and a member
of the Florida Federation of
Garden Clubs, is happy to
announce a Creative Floral
Arranging Program featuring
the talent of Liz Murken, of
Avon Park, on Thursday at the
Sebring Civic Center.
Murken, who has been
involved in floral arranging for
about 20 years, will be demon-
strating her talent and floral
design skills to the local com-
munity through this program.
She will not only display sev-
eral original designs, but will
demonstrate each, as well.
While many may not be
aware of the difference
between traditional floral
arranging, like that which is
done by florists, and the floral
designs done by garden club
members, such as Murken,
there is a big difference.
Traditional floral arrange-
ments consist mostly of plant
material, whereas Murken's
floral designs use very little
plant material.
"You start with a 'contain-
er,'" she explained, "and usual-
ly you incorporate dried
branches or something, like
metal, or any number of things.
No matter what you use to hold
your arrangement, it is a 'con-
tainer.' It's not a vase; it's a
'container."'
In this type of arrangement,
the components of the arrange-
meint are .cntical to the design;
and Murken is always on the
lookout for objects she can use
to add interest. Sometimes she

Liz Murken, of Avon Park, places an unusual branch into a unique
container, as she practices for her upcoming floral design program
to be at the Sebring Civic Center Thursday.


may find items outdoors, at
thrif; shops or rummage sales,
or on clearance in retail stores.
Occasionally, however, she has
to pay a pretty penny for a -
unique item to use. "Vendors
come to the conventions, espe-
cially the national convention,
and they will have unusual
containers, driftwood, branch-
es, or all sorts of things; and
there you may pay as much as
$10 for an unusual branch."
Murken collects things all
the time and most of the time
without really having any con-
crete idea in her mind of what
design it will be. used in. One
particular branch she had
picked up somewhere remained
unused for two years before
she "suddenly came up with:
the idea to use it in a certain
design" she was working on,


for which it was perfectly suit-
ed.
Not only does Murken cre-
ate floral designs, but she is
also a master flower show
judge as well. She has been
involved in the state fair in
Wisconsin, where she resides
during the summer, for about
10 years. Flower shows are dif-
ferent than programs, in that
they are judged and there are
certain regulations and criteria
which must be adhered to.
Murken said that "in judging a
show we look for the exact
same elements that art has been
judged by over the ages: bal-
ance, dominance, contrast,
rhythm, proportion, and scale.",
Over the course of years she
has participated in shows,
Murken has won "too many
ribbons to count," and has in


her portfolio photos of designs
that are amazingly diverse, all
of which are absolutely stun-
ning. Even an untrained eye
can appreciate the artistic talent
demonstrated in her works.
Initially, as she began
preparing for this upcoming
program, Murken had some
difficulty readily locating flax
leaves, which were a key ele-
ment for a few of the designs
she had been planning to
demonstrate. She had begun to
develop alternative plans when
she was relieved to find out
that Ridge Florist had located
some for her.
In addition to the program in
Sebring, Murken has been
asked to do programs for state
conventions in Washington and
Oregon, both of which will be
held in June of this year.
"I have never done anything
this big before," she said, "and
I'm developing a program
called, 'Jungle Fever.'"
In keeping with this theme,
she has been collecting items
which she plans to incorporate
into her designs.
"I found some dishes on sale
for 75 percent off called
'Jungle Beat,' and have also
found a tiger head carved out
of wood, and a snake made of
wood that is cut so that it can
wiggle."
Currently she is "just col-
lecting things," and said, "You
never know how you'll use it.
But you gotta have stuff."
Not only is she preparing for
the local program and the two
state programs, but two weeks
prior to the state conventions
she is in charge of center
pieces for about 1,000 people
and decorations for around the
hotel for the National Garden
Club Convention, which will
be held in Milwaukee this year.
Additionally, one week after
her program in Sebring, she
will be flying to Oklahoma
City for an instructors' sympo-
sium at which she will have to
give a 15-minute presentation
as a new instructor because last
year she was approved to teach
design in flower show schools.
"And here I sit in: lorida,"
she laughed.


AN, RIC


But Murken
isn't ruffled. She
is looking for-
ward to all of the
events she will be
participating in"
and said of the
art, "I thoroughly
enjoy doing the
designs and it is
very relaxing to
me."
The program in
Sebring will
begin at 1 p.m.
Thursday at the
Sebring Civic
Center and will
consist of demon-
strations of
Murken's designs
followed by
refreshments.
Anyone interested
in purchasing tick-
ets can call 402-
1493 or 471-192.
Tickets will also
be available at the
door.


Liz Murken poses beside a table she has
arranged. The floral arrangement seen in this
setting is a traditional design made just for fun
using yellow roses she found on clearance at
Wal-mart. Typically, her work is less tradition-
al, containing less plant material and more
objects of interest. This lovely arrangement uses
a candle holder she picked up at a thrift shop as
its container. Murken often finds items to use in
her arrangements at thrift shops or on clear-
ance; and she is always on the lookout for inter-
esting items to use in her creative designs.

This Year
I Give Thanks
For My Life!

By:
R. Donald
Tomasik


I wanted to write and let you
know that I am eternally greatful
to you for saving my life! I saw an ad
for mobile ultra-sound tests a
year before actually signing up to be -
tested. I just had a feeling that some-
thing was not right. My wife kept
urging me to spend the $179 a nd 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 able to
take my test reslltsto my primary
care physician and be referred to a
specialist, who's first question
was' how do you know you
have an aneurysm?' I showed him
my Healthfair ultrasound photos, and
hesmiled and said, 'those Healthfair
screenings 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 over the country someday. It really
is necessary to have these tests since
Medicare wont pay for the prevent-
ative screenings and I couldn't afford
to pay the hospital price! Thanks from-
both Marge and I for your 7
Test Package, it was truly an invest-
ment in my health!

Stroke & Aneurysm Prevention Package


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!

League announces


winners in art show


ELIZABETH WALKER/News-Sun
The Black American Heritage Flag, designed and patented by
Melvin Charles and Gleason Jackson in 1967, is on exhibit at the
Sebring Ridge Museum this month.

Sebring Ridge Museum

hosts Black History exhibit


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The Black
American Heritage Flag,
designed and patented by
Melvin Charles and Gleason
Jackson in 1967, is being dis-
played as a part of the Black
History Exhibit in Sebring.
The exhibit is in the Sebring
Ridge Museum at 121 N.
Ridgewood Drive, which
reopens from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday and will continue to be
open Tuesdays through
Saturday.
The wreath of figs represent
peace, prosperity and everlast-
ing life; the blunt sword repre-


sents defense, authority and
power; the color black, pride in
pigmentation and race; the
color red, blood shed for free-
dom, justice and human dignity.
With much ceremony, the
flag was first unfurled in
Newark, N.J., in 1968.
More interest and acceptance
of the flag are being created as
it unfurls across the country.
Besides the history of the
Black American Heritage Flag,
loose-leaf notebooks of local
Black Heritage Hall of Fame
and Black Heritage Tales, Trails
and Treasures are shown with
other scenes of Black Heritage.


Keep Highlands Beautiful volunteers

part of campaign to tackle eyesores


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Keep
Highlands County Beautiful
Inc. volunteers will improve the
quality of life as they clean up
litter-strewn areas and fix up
and beautify eyesores during
Keep America Beautiful's
Great American Cleanup, the
nation's largest annual commu-
nity improvement program,
March 1 through May 31.
Volunteers are encouraged to
roll up their sleeves and support
clean communities. To volun-"
teer, call 655-6477.
"The 20th anniversary of our
Great American Cleanup marks
,a milestone for creating and
maintaining clean communities
as volunteers rally together this
spring to eliminate litter, graffi-
ti and blight that plague local
environments. Through their
hands-on commitment and pos-
itive behaviors, volunteers are
providing the solution to sus-
taining a healthy quality of life
for everyone," G.. Raymond
Empson, president of Keep
America Beautiful, said.
National nonprofit Keep
America Beautiful is celebrat-
ing the 20th anniversary of its
signature program, the Great
American Cleanup. For two
decades, millions of Great
American Cleanup volunteers
haven taken action to dramati-
cally improve tens of thousands


of communities so they are
safer to play in, live in and
enjoy.
In 2005, the Great American
Cleanup is expected to involve
more than 2.3 million people
volunteering more than 7 mil-
lion hours to clean, beautify and
improve 15,000 communities
during 30,000 events from
coast to coast in all 50 states.
Activities will include beautify-
ing parks and recreation areas,
cleaning seashores and water-
ways, handling recycling col-
lections, picking up litter, plant-
ing trees and flowers, and con-
ducting educational programs
and litter-free events.
Last year 2.3 million Great
American Cleanup volunteers
collected 150 million pounds of
litter and debris; planted 5 mil-
lion flowers and bulbs; cleaned
6,500 miles of rivers, lakes and
shorelines; and collected 1.2
million tires for recycling. In
fact, one tire can attract 10,000
mosquitoes, which can increase
the threat of West Nile Virus.
Collecting and removing tires
from communities can reduce
this threat.
In addition, a recent Keep
America Beautiful survey
revealed that 89 percent of
community leaders reporting
Great American Cleanup results
indicated that their volunteers
felt safer in their communities.


Special to the News-Sun
On Jan. 29, the Lake Placid
Art League sponsored the 18th
annual Art Show and Sale at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Several thousand visitors
enjoyed the 60 artists and
craftsmen who exhibited their
work.
Admission was free for
viewers who became eligible
for the more than $2,000 worth
of door prizes, which were
awarded every 30 minutes.
Vendors provided bye prizes
along with merchants in the
Highlands County' area. In
addition, $1,200 worth of Lake
Placid Art League art works
including paintings, sculpture,
jewelry, hand-painted china and
photographer were donated by
members for a raffle.
Prizes were delivered to the
winners on Sunday after they
provided their addresses when
called on Sunday except for Mr.
Sbiegay who drove to the cen-
ter to pick up the Loftus sculp-
ture.
J. Dickinson said she had
tried last year to win a piece of
china, did not win, so she tried
again this year. We are pleased
that her willingness to try again
awarded her the beautiful rose
arrangement on china.
So Kohan had lost much of
his art because of the hurri-
canes, so his win of the Barbara
Wade watercolor will begin his
new collection.
Congratulations to each raf-
fle prize winner and thank you
to everyone who contributed to
the raffle.
The artists and craftspeople
who worked so diligently to set
up their booths and arrange
their art provided the show with
quality work to be judged and
sold. After so many hurricanes,
they were resilient to work hard
to create their work for sale.
Some artists from years past
were not able to participate this
year because all their work had
been destroyed, but they prom-
ised to return next year.
Cathy Futral and Mary
Gebhart very capably judged
the show in the fine' arts and
crafts categories. The following
were the winners this year: Best


of Show, Harold Griner; Parrish
Award, Alice Hansen; first
place awards, Cody Coltharp,
Jan Fetters and Max and
Antonio Leimer, Lewellyn
Rinald, and Chuck Thomas;
second place, Willa Campbell,
Bill and Lori Gregory, John
Harris, Greg Jones and William
Underwood; third place, Jack
Cathers, Dexter Daniels, Bud
Kelch, Ted and Hillary Klass,
and Bill Spilker; honorable
mention, Grace Canada, Fay
Gaines, Len Jones, Janet
Ochsenhirt, and D. Burleigh
Phillips.
The Lake Placid Senior High
School art students exhibited
their art and competed for cash
prizes and ribbons. The follow-
ing awards were presented:
Best of Show, Alyse Archard;
first place, David Dehart and
Jessica Fuentez; second place,

Church Service

Center honors

volunteers
Special to the News-Sun
They dined on steak and deli-
cious homemade desserts at
First Presbyterian Church in
Avon Park.
"They" are the volunteers of
the Avon Park Church Service
Center. Forty-three volunteers
and spouses were recognized
for their commitment to serve
the "least of these" in our com-
munity. They give of their time
and talent to provide food,
clothes, medicine, household
items and utility assistance to
low income folks living in our
town.
This year they braved the
hurricanes, which meant mov-
ing twice to a temporary facili-
ty and renovating the interior of
the old police station in Avon
Park. With smiling .faces they
served victims of burnt out
houses and migrant workers
with no fruit to pick, who still
needed food and diapers for
their children.
This Christian organization
and its volunteers provide the
day to day services to those in
need on behalf of the local
churches. While some of the
churches donate food and finan-
cial support, it is the volunteers
of Church Service Center who
are the hands of Christ in this
community.
Thanks were sent to the city

center with a facility to operate
out of.

ministry of Church Service
Center. The volunteers put in
more than 7,000 hours in 2004,
gave more than 137,000 pounds
in food for over 4,800 families.
This years-' volunteer who


put in the most hours is Bill
Stephenson. He volunteers as
the full-time director, and is a
man of mission with a heart for
God.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Sebring
Rotary Club annual Spaghetti
Dinner began in 1964. The first
year's profit was about $600
and went to improve Teen
Town, which is now Highlands
Little Theatre. Since 1978 the
.profits have been $169,939.52.
Louis Alsmeyer became gen-
eral chairman in 1965 and con-
tinued in that position until the
late '70s. There were about 800
hungry mouths served in 1965
and now the club serves in
excess of 2,400 meals.
Wednesday, Feb. 23, will be
the 42nd time that the club
serves up the delicious meal.
There are still a number of
members who are faithfully
serving as head of the original
committees: Ernie Breed and
Ed Koch, spaghetti; Jack Ingle,
serving; and George Hensley
and Ford Heacock, drinks.
Bill Jernigan began in 1965
on the sauce committee under
Jimmy Maxcy and started help-
ing his father-in-law, Louis
Alsmeyer, as the assistant gen-
eral chairman, later taking on
more responsibilities as
Alsmeyer's health began to fail.
When Larry Jernigan joined
his father, Bill, in his veterinary
practice and in Sebring Rotary
Club in 1982 he continued the
family tradition and functioned
as assistant chairman as well as
now the sauce committee chair-
man.
The spaghetti committee
under Ernie Breed, Ed Koch
and Kim McKay boils water in
two 55-gallon drums and cooks
spaghetti and green beans with
ham in numerous 10- to 20-gal-
lon pots beginning at 8 a.m. and
cooks all day. They. cook 400
pounds dry weight of spaghetti,
cool it down for storage and
then reheat as it is served from
4:30-7:30 p.m.
The meat sauce committee
starts at 8 a.m., cooks 700
pounds of lean meat in 14 50-
pound batches along with more
than 100 gallons of tomato
products and all other condi-
ments.
Cooking is done in the
kitchen building and the new
outbuilding barbecue kitchen
just behind the kitchen at the
main Fairgrounds entrance near


the water tower.
About 24 cases of green
beans are flavored with smoked
-ham hocks and chopped fresh
onions. Added to the dinner
plate are also coleslaw, rolls,
butter and cookies at serving
time.
There are four serving lines
of Rotarians, with two at the
entrance to the building allow-
ing the "eat-in" customers to go


right in to the tables, set up
inside.
There are about 1,800 "take-
outs" and 700 "eat-ins" dinners
served.
Both middle school bands
help sell tickets and the stage
bands play a concert during the
dinner. This is a fund raiser for
these bands. Sebring Rotary
Club has supported school
bands since 1926.

Youth for Christ


growing in number


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING Two years ago,
Youth for Christ of Highlands
County was reaching 200-300
stiidents.
Andrew Katsanis, executive
director of the local group, was
proud to announce to 330-plus
guests attending the annual ban-
quet that the organization is now
reaching almost 1,000 students
in its ministry.
"Since August, 36 students
have given their hearts to Jesus
Christ," he said.
Even Katsanis' staff has
grown from three to 10.
The Youth for Christ campus
ministry is on every high school
and middle school in Highlands
County, as well as Heartland
Christian School.
Not only is there the Campus
Life ministry, but at Sebring and


Lake Placid middle and high
schools there is Girl Talk, a pro-
gram where girls get together
and have lunch on campus and
just talk. And this year, .Reid
Thayer has added Dude Stuff at
Lake Placid High School, a pro-
gram just for the boys.
Youth for Christ also puts on
Saturday Night Fever funnights.
The annual Back to School Bash
was canceled this year because
of the hurricanes, but is being
replaced by Resonate, a full day
youth conference at South
Florida Community College on
Saturday, May 14. Katsanis
expects 1,000-1,500 students to
attend. The theme for Resonate
is "I Am Not Ashamed."
A number of students spoke
before the crowd and gave testi-
mony to how Youth for Christ
has helped them. See those sto-
ries in Wednesday's News-Sun.

ATVs becoming a bigger problem for rural Florida


By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING. All terrain
vehicles have been both recre-
ational and utilitarian transport
in rural Florida for many years.
The problem comes in when
people use the off-road vehicles
at what's known as the urban
interface: Where the wilderness
and development meet.
ATVs are' not allowed on
road right-of-ways, which
includes not only the pavement,
but also the shoulder, drainage
ditches and retention ponds,
and even adjacent hiking and

can come from youngsters
operating the bikes unsuper-
vised or without safety equip-
ment.
Recently, Neale saw a 12-
year-old boy on a mini-motor-
cycle in the bicycle lane of
Lakewood Road near Sebring.
He looked behind himself for
traffic and nearly swerved in
front of a car. Cyclists can have
this kind of accident, but Neale
believes it's more likely with a
mini-motorcycle because con-
trols were "down by his feet."


bicycle trails.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office had already
answered 50 ATV complaints as
of Jan. 16. Complaints can be
from riders using private or'
public land, off or on roads.
Lt. Randy LaBelle of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office said the problem of
ATVs riding on roads is getting
to be an even bigger problem
each week, especially in largely
rural developments like Leisure
Lakes, Orange Blossom Estates
and Avon Park Estates.
Many of the roads in those


Lt. Randy LaBelle of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office reported that, so far, his
squad has only had to give ver-
bal warnings to keep such riders
off road right-of-ways.
'Bad Bet'
Consumer Reports, on Dec.
4, 2004, called pocket bikes a
"bad bet" after testing two gas-
powered and two electric bikes
on paved private property.
Testers said the bikes are too
low to be seen and loud enough
to damage riders' hearing, and
had insufficient brakes, poor
handling, and sluggish throttles.
Gas-powered bikes traveling 20


areas sport parallel sand tracks
on both shoulders where peo-
ple, rather than hauling ATVs to
private riding sites, ride them
down the shoulders of the road.
Law enforcement has also
reported seeing ATV riders in
Orange Blossom Estates racing
on a graded shell road, even
racing while doing "wheelies,"
which prevents them from see-
ing where they are going.
It has gotten to be such a
problem that people would like
'the county to consider estab-
lishing an off-road ATV park
sometime in the future.


mph took 20-30 feet to stop.
Electric models going 7-14
mph stopped in 4-15 feet. The
faster testers rode, the less sta-
ble the bikes felt. Riders had to
concentrate to hold a straight
course. At slower speeds,
testers said tight turns were
impossible since handlebar and
brake levers hit the bikes' plas-
tic housing. Testers did not rec-
ommend off-road use.

TOFFIN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

It's not quite

walking on air
My plan, as my alarm went
off at 5 a.m. last Wednesday,
was to work until about noon
with a Stewart Construction
Company roofing crew, and
then go into the newsroom and
write up a couple of stories.
Was I an optimist. Not to
mention ignorant.
By the time I got to the
newsroom some where around
1 p.m., after five hours work-
ing on a roof, I ached all over
- but especially in my legs,
back and arms. My feet hurt, I
had broken blisters on both
hands, and a headache, About
the only part of my body that
wasn't screaming, was my hair
- and that was sweat soaked.
I couldn't lift a pencil, never
mind think. I crawled home
and into a hot tub, where I
promptly fell asleep.
It wasn't the ladders that did
me in. Stewart takes justified
pride in its safety codes and
methods of working. The lad-
ders were more than long
enough and sturdy, getting on
and off the roof wasn't a prob-
lem.
Walking on the shingle grit
was.
It's bad enough when the
shingles are still attached to
the roof, then they are only
slippery. It's like walking on
ice, at an acute angle, eight
feet or more above ground.
After the shingles are
removed, however, while the
tarpaperis being ripped off;

Roofers face perils every day


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Roofing is considered to be one of the
most dangerous jobs there is. Roofers face perils as
deadly as fishermen do.
Workers' compensation figures bluntly tell the story.
For every $100 of payroll, an employer has to pay $57
in workers' compensation tax. That's over and above
Other payroll deductions, such as unemployment.
"It's very expensive to have roofers on the job," said
Mark Stewart, owner and operator of Stewart
Construction.
Roofers are therefore carefully screened, and an
experienced one can make excellent money. Even indi-
viduals new to the trade can make $8 an hour.
..."It's .hard,.hard work,"..Stew.arlt -:id "There jcii't
too many. old roofei '. it'sha :i, tLn-,cr man's game."
Roofs are built in layerA and the components need to


be especially secured in Florida, where even ordinary
storms can drive rain sideways. The key is to create a
wind resistant envelope which protects the interior of
the building.
One type of roof typically starts with a plywood
deck. On top of that felt, or tarpaper, is rolled out and
nailed down. Shingles are then laid out on top of that
and nailed down too, after being sealed with roofing
cement.
Stewart Construction adheres to the stiffer codes
found in the coastal counties. Their roofers use six nails
a shingle, for example, and nail down the felt in a dia-
mond pattern every 18 inches.
"Roofing is the most demanding trade in the con-
struction business, maybe excepting masonry work,"
A II. C T.1'..01, .1 cL." le.idet ft'i. St w .i.rt i Con nilt i.,i l.
said recent, "'I' a ; \CIe dangerous job
It's also a trade that is largely learned by doing.


"There are a lot of secrets," Taylor explained.
"You'll never find a book with (every fact) in it.
Roofing is regional, because the weather is so different
everywhere, and building codes too. If a roofer tells
you they know everything beware. There's always
something new, or a more efficient way. We're always
learning. You need to watch (roofers at work). Make
sure they're doing it right." she added.
Taylor is unusual. She is, to her knowledge, the only
woman working at roofing in Highlands County.
Like most roofers she finds the best satisfaction is
when she's completed a job and is standing back with
the homeowner, watching their excitement.
"Driving by later," she added, "I love looking up and
saying, 'I did that.' "

Music runs through Fielder's veins

Sean Fielder feels nothing c

Fielder, of Music Makers
Sebring Square Plaza has be
making music for a long tin
"I'm a fourth generation mu
maker, and the third generate,
living here in Sebring," Se
said. "In 1935, my grandpa
ents owned a radio-music stc
in the old Sebring hotel, and n
parents and I lived in an apa

this business."

with heavy tools at down to

The primary tool has many
names. Joel Kaarlela who,
along with Angel Taylor, is the

blade at the bottom, angled to
slide parallel to the floor, with
a serrated leading edge
designed to fit under nail
heads. Then you push down oi
the handle, which also is a
lever, and the nails pop out.
It's actually fun to use,
because you have enough
leverage to pop almost any nai
and that's very satisfying. But
you have to dig into the shin-
gles and tar paper, and you
have to apply force. So what
happens is, you get so into
using the tool, you don't notice
how much energy you've used
until your muscles begin to
hurt, and of course by then it's
way too late. You're already
facing major pain, and the job
isn't even half done yet.

came to helping nail down the

way I can offer bargains to my
customers."
With no commissioned sales-
men, Fielder claimed to offer
20-25 percent lower prices than
elsewhere. "For example, at the
low end of getting started, a
new keyboard costs $300 with
10 lessons and a beginner's
book included," he said. "That's
a good deal, since lessons nor-
mally cost $15 per session."
Fielder creates his own
arrangements of anything -he
hears, for instance, like Dorsey
or Milleroand demonstrates
how you can do it too. Fielder's
enthusiasm is infectious as he
energetically and playfully
demonstrates the features of
different instruments. He's a
one-man-band a Music Man.
"Often people think they
need an organ repaired, but it's
usually just an operational
problem," Fielder said. "They
can't understand the complicat-
ed manuals, and get frustrated
trying to make it sound right.
For a $30 in-home lesson, I
show them how to operate it,
and how to create special
effects, tones, etc.
"Organs always appeal to the
retiree, and after I show them
how to get the most fun out of
their instrument and easy ways
to play the music they love,
they really get excited about it

News-Sun
SEBRING Christian
Country Music's "New Artist of
the Year" and Sebring's very
own Tommy Brandt will enter-
tain guests of Thursday's Palms
Auxiliary annual dinner.
The Palms Auxiliary was
formed in 1970 to enhance the
lives of older adults residing at
the Palms. In more recent years
their purpose is to assist those
residents who have outlived
their financial means.
Due to Medicare cut backs,
the recent focus has been for
benevolence and special needs
such as financial aid for dental,
medications, hearing aids, eye-
glasses, and grooming needs.
Brandt has offered to lend his
hand by providing entertain-
ment at Thursday's dinner.
-Seating is limited and reserva-
- tions are required.


Brandt was raised in a home
where his mother taught him
from a young age that his musi-
cal talents and gift of entertain-
ing was purely sent from God.
Brandt began singing gospel
music in 1998. He has a humor-
ous "old school" type of
demeanor that keeps him on the
same level with his audience,
allowing them to relax and feel
the presence of the Lord at his
concerts.
He has two released to
Christian radio and both went to
number one on the Christian
Country Charts. "No Turning
Back" and "Till You Start
Walking" have the upbeat
sounds of today's mainstream
country with Christian family
values.
Brandt has shared the stage
with Del Way, The Fox
Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys,


Clifton Jansky, Dotti Rambo,
Laverne Tripps, Mike
SHammock, Branded and Josh
Turner to name a few. He has
live concert videos that air on
several networks including
GMT and GAC.
Most recently, Brandt was
nominated for Top Male
Vocalist and Top New Artists
for 2004 by the Christian
Country Music Association and
was honored to receive the
"New Artist of the Year" award.
Brandt and his wife Michelle
have two children. The family
has been on the road full time
serving the Lord since
November 2003.
The dinner will be in The
Palms of Sebring Dining Room,
725 S. Pine St. For ticket infor-
matioh call 385-016T.

Remember to

voice opinion
Editor:
"Brightening human lives is
not wasted government, it is
government at its very best."
These words by the late
Senator and Congressman
Claude Denson Pepper ring so
true today. American has and
continues to be he most gener-
ous nation in the world.
Legislative bodies are cur-
rently meeting throughout
America and will be making
decisions that will affect mil-
lions. Your input is vitally
important. Our agenda should
focus on protecting: the
unborn, the elderly, and the
infirm. Unless we help them,
who will?
Please contact your lawmak-
ers on every level to:
1. stop abortion everywhere;
2. not allow privatization of
Social Security, Medicare or
Medicaid;
3. work to establish a univer-
sal health care insurance pro-
gram for all Americans;
4. support increases in the
minimum wage.
Remember that your opinion
is important and together we
can make a difference.

Do not exempt

gun industry
Editor:
Police wearing bullet proof
vests are an American phenom-
enon. Other countries don't
have that much problem with
their police being shot, but then
they have gun control. Armored
vests are specifically designed
to protect police from hand-
guns, from handgun fire at
close range. In Florida most
police generally wear lighter
armor than police in cooler cli-
mates, because it is so hot.
According to the Bureau of
Justice Statistics, 57 percent of
police officers and 53 percent
of sheriff's deputies belonged
to departments that require
them to wear protective armor,
in 2000. Protecting police from
gunfire is no simple matter.
Even if the bullet fails to pene-
trate a vest, the impact may.
cause severe bruising, which
can be fatal.
At a gun show in Orlando in
2003, Smith & Wesson
unveiled a new .50 caliber
handgun. The power of this
new gun severely challenges
the notion that our police will
be able to wear enough armor
to protect themselves. To grasp
the danger, consider that the
old .357 Magnum delivered
bullets with a muzzle energy of
500 ft/lb. Smith & Wesson's
new .50 handgun fires bullets
with a muzzle energy of 2,600
ft/lb., more than five times as


much.
The .50 caliber S&W hand-
gun even has more kinetic
energy at 15 feet than a 7.62
NATO rifle does at 50 feet,
more than three times the dis-
tance. I don't see how civilian
ownership of weapons like this
is going to do anything but
spawn more violence.
To make matters worse, it
has been reported that the same
gun sometimes fire two bullets
instead of one, a clear safety
defect. Unlike automobiles, no
agency has the authority to
recall defective guns.
Republicans in Congress have
repeatedly tried to make the
gun industry immune from
lawsuits. Defects like the one
just mentioned are clear evi-
dence that this would be unjust.

Au yang says it

as it really is

Editor:
Pauline Au Yang, writer for
the News- (Jan? 1)') article,
"Thailand's ,child^sex trade,"
showed aside of President
Bush that CBS, NBC, or any
other liberal news station
would not want you citizens of
the United States to know
about.
President Bush in his address
to the United Nations in 2003
"asked that countries pass laws
against their citizens traveling
abroad to engage in 'under-
ground brutality' of sex traf-
ficking and warn tourist of the
-humanitarian crisis."
Congress has since passed
the Protect Act of the Child
Sex-tourism Provision and
Americans have been arrested
in foreign countries under this
law, which can bring 30 years
in prison for their actions.
This inhumane treatment
was soon uncovered not only in
Thailand but other countries
where that tsunami under the
sea earthquake took so many
lives.
And those many Americans
that hate President George
Bush do they know the com-
passion of our President Bush
for young children around the
world being used by those lib-
eral-thinking Americans visit-
ing foreign countries and the
theory that what one does in
their personal life is no ones
business.
It took the lives 'of many
people who died in the tsunami
to bring out into the open the
tragedy of the appetites of for-
eign visitors taking advantage
6f the lack of Christian beliefs
in these countries.
We can thank God for a
newspaper like the News-Sun
having a columnist such as
Pauline Au Yang under the title
"Points to Ponder" printing her
article and how many people
read it and did not read the arti-

Presley is doing

patriotic job
Editor:
A few weeks ago a friend of
mine called and said "I have a
man I want you to meet." He
went on to say this man told
him of a dream or a plan he
had. He said Claude wanted to
have Sebring to be known for
more than racing. He wanted
Sebring to become the most
patriotic city in all of Florida.
He (Claude) told my friend that
in order to do that, he would
install, free of charge, flagpoles
for anyone who bought a flag-
pole and called him.
My friend came to Sebring's
VFW Post 4300, obtained one
of our flagpoles and then called
Claude and me to install it.
When I first met Claude
Presley, I knew I was in the
company of a unique individ-
ual. Claude, who is 80 years of
age and has some physical lim-
itations, does not let that inter-
fere with his goal of seeing
Sebring become the most patri-
otic city in Florida. He is a vet-,
eran of both World War II and
Korea and one can see his eyes
mist over when he talks of his
love of his flag and country. He
has no guilt when using the
words God, flag and country in
the same sentence, and won-
ders aloud why would try to
remove the word God when it
is associated with our flag and
our nation.
Claude's desire now is to see
a new flagpole go up for every
one of our heroes killed in Iraq.
That number at this time in
about 1400. Claude says he is

Letters


I am the parent of two
teenage boys. I remind my
readers of this to emphasize the
fact I do have some experience
with how shocking that genera-
tion can be.
The music alone is enough to
curl your hair. Yours anyway
my hair consistently resists
curling.
Sometimes however I do
find myself stunned by some-
thing concerning the high-
schoolers of our day. The latest
shock was a news story I got
from several different sources.
The title from one Web page
summed it up: "First
Amendment No Big Deal,
Students Say."
Apparently, a study spon-
sored by the John S. and James
L. Knight Foundation and con-
ducted by researchers from the
University of Connecticut,
many high school students
have views about the First
Amendment that are at the very
least disturbing.
Think I'm exaggerating?
According to the article, stu-
dents who were made aware of
the exact text of the First
Amendment, many of them -
over one in three thought it
went too far in the rights it
guarantees. Half thought that
newspapers should not be
allowed to publish their stories
without government approval.
Seventeen percent of those who
had taken courses that dealt
with the media or the First
Amendment said that people
should not be allowed to
express unpopular views.
When those students who had
not taken such courses were
polled that number jumped to
32 percent.
Some people have looked at
this and tried to place blame. I
have heard conservative talk
radio held responsible because
they bash the media so much.
Rush Limbaugh blamed poor
Teaching of the Constitution, as.
did others.
This story was disturbing to
me for a couple of reasons. As
the parent of teenagers, I worry
that I have not instilled the
truth about the freedoms we
enjoy in this country to them.
As a \writer, I enjoy a place to
share my thoughts, feelings,
and jokes thanks to the First
Amendment. Yet many of those
who will one day take up the
reins of running the show seem
to lack basic understanding of a
basic freedom.
I understand the temptation
to silence those who don't
agree with you. I wonder what
I would ever say to Michael
Moore if I ever met him. I find
his views regarding the country
that has been a part of his suc-
cess to be ungrateful and
wrong. In my opinion, calling
"Fahrenheit 9/11" a documen-
tary is like calling my coluinn a
front page news story.
However and this is
important Michael Moore is
blessed in this country to say
those things and produce that
piece of film. Do I like it? Not
particularly. But he probably
doesn't like the things I've said
in this column, for example.
The other great thing is just
because he and I have the right
to express our views neither of
us can be forced to listen to the
other. So I don't have to see his
* so-called documentary, he
doesn't have to read my col-
umn, and everybody's happy.
We need to be leery of taking
away freedoms granted by our
Constitution. Freedom of
speech is admittedly a mixed
bag granting it means there
is a risk someone is going to
say something that will offend
someone. We need to remem-
ber that if we deny this freedom
to others, we risk losing it our-
selves if they ever come to
power.
In closing, let me add 45
words to this column. They are
the words of the First
Amendment. Read them, and
be thankful for the rights we
are given in this country not
all in the world are so blessed.

Hideous hitchhiker becomes household haunt


Living in Florida
it's nothing unusual
to' be driving and
notice that a lizard
has hitched a ride.
You may see one
inside your vehicle,
which is never fun,
but mostly they seem
to enjoy riding on the
windshield wipers.
Generally, the best
way to deal with this
situation is simply to


turn on the wipers and fling
them off of the wiper blade.
I can't say exactly.how often
I've encountered this scenario
in my years of residing in the
sunshine state; but I know that
it's been often enough that the
novelty of it has worn off.
Recently, however, I encoun-
tered a hitchhiker of a different
sort.
Returning from Tampa where
I had gone to search for a living
room suit, my 20-year-old son
and I were cruising down 1-4 at
about 70 mph towing a large U-
haul trailer after dark. He was
behind the wheel.
Something caught my eye
through the windshield. It
looked to be a branch or vine of
some kind. Upon closer exami-
nation I came to the startling
realization that it was nothing
as harmless as a piece of plant
material. I was staring at the
underside of a snake.
. It pays to think before you
speak; a lesson I've learned
many times in my life and yet
sometimes fail to recall when it
is most critical to do so. Had I
done so before opening my big
mouth at that particular
moment, I wouldn't be walking
around my home day and night


in fear and trepida-
tion as I have been
for the past 48 hours.
"Anthony, look!" I
stupidly exclaimed.
"There's a snake
climbing up the
S windshield!"
"Oh, cool!" he
replied, right before
'ED announcing, "It's a
corn snake!
LOCK Awesome! I'm gonna
get him!"
"No!" I screamed emphati-


cally, as he began abruptly
slowing and moving toward the
left shoulder of the busy inter-
state.
"Do not get that thing!" I
shouted. It was futile, however,
as he was'continuing to slow
down.
"At least, if you're bound to
get it, don't do it here. Go to an
exit and pull off to a safe
place," I pleaded.
But by then we were careen-
ing off the road and onto the
shoulder where we came to a
moderately abrupt stop just
before he bailed out and bound-
ed to the front of the vehicle.
Knowing it was too late to try
to stop this insidious capture, I
figured I better make quick
work finding something in
which to place the slithering
creature in order to prevent my
son jumping into the vehicle
and tossing it to me to hold on
the way home.
I fortunately had a plastic
container filled, with change
which I immediately began
dumping into a tissue box. I had
no sooner emptied the container
when Anthony came climbing
back inside with the two-foot
long beast in hand.

He placed it in, put the lid on,
and continued the journey
home. By the time we had
arrived at the house, the snake
had been appropriately given
the name "Hood-ini."
"Fine," I thought to myself.
"Who cares? He'll keep it in his
room and I won't ever be both-
ered by it."
But, the following evening
he came home with an aquari-
um with a lid that had plenty of
gaps in it, and even one big hole
through which I insisted Hood-
ini could escape.
"He can't climb up that
glass," the kids all agreed.
"Look," I argued, "I saw that
snake climbing a windshield
going 70 mph on the interstate.
Don't tell me that Hood-ini
can't climb this one foot high
piece of glass!"
Needless to say, I lost the bat-
tle; and the aquarium, lid and
all, became the "permanent"
habitat for the snake.

"Permanent" is actually a
misnomer, however, because by
morning the snake was nowhere
to be found. The only thing we
are relatively certain about is
that Hood-ini is somewhere
inside our house and most like-
ly hidden under or in something
warm and cozy.
This doesn't make me feel
very comfortable in my home, I
don't mind telling you. Most of
the time I am on the alert, eyes
wide open, and always exercis-
ing caution when moving about
or opening anything.

It occurred to me that no
space is off limits or out of the
realm of possible hiding places
for Hood-ini. I check my purse

What more can be done to
make Highlands County's
roadways safe?

Create a by-pass for trucks.
Add traffic lights along U.S. 27
to better control speed which,
hopefully, would decrease
number of accidents. And pro-
vide for safe access onto U.S.

Should FEMA be held
accountable for the decisions


made in Miami-Dade?

Absolutely. Large sums of
money should never be turned
over to anyone to give out so
freely without better guidelines
for who needs it, and there
should be accountability for
both those who received money
and who gave it out.
FEMA should be held
accountable along with the ones
who accepted what they were
not entitled to receive.

before digging in it; turn back
my covers and search them
thoroughly before climbing into
bed; look carefully into my cup-
boards before searching for a
pot or pan; check inside my
pots and pans before using
them; look in my shoes before
inserting my feet; and on and
on.

Last night I woke up to go to
the bathroom and in my groggy
state of mind, I stood up and felt
around on my night table for
my cup. I was standing on
something but I didn't think
much of it since I was still more
than half asleep.
But all of a sudden it hit me
simultaneously that the object I
was standing on felt thin, cylin-
der shaped, long, and cold, and
that there was a snake on the
loose. I jumped and ran for the
light switch across the room. It
had only been my shoelace!
To make matters worse, I
also have laryngitis and can't
talk much louder than a whis-
per! If I come head to head with
this horrible creature I won't
even be able to call out for help!
The odds of me being the one
to run into it aren't so bad I
reckon. After all, there are six
people living in the house.
Maybe I won't be the one who
needs a voice with which to
scream.
I suppose that every story
needs a moral. With that in
mind, I would say that the
moral of this story is, "A snake
on the hood is better than a
Hood-ini in the house!"

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Apparently, depth is
overrated.
At least that's the lesson that the
DeSoto Bulldogs are teaching teams down
the stretch this season. The latest to learn
the hard way was the Avon Park Red
Devils as the Bulldogs, who have just five
players on the roster, outplayed the Devils
down the stretch for a 61-56 win.
It was the fourth win in six games with
the minimum number of players for coach
David Oness' Bulldogs, a feat that even
Avon Park coach Eric Zwayer admits is
impressive.
"I thought DeSoto did a really good job
of going to the glass and playing hard and
being more aggressive than we were,"
DeSt Zwayer said.
6 1 "I think our guys looked
over and saw five guys and
6 said, 'We'll just run them to
Avon Park death,' but they're in good
56 shape, they played hard and
*56 played together as a team.
Up Next They wore us down when it
Red Devils at should have been the other
Sebring on way around."
Tuesday Early on, it looked like
the Devils would run the
Bulldogs down as Devaris Strange scored
the first six points of the game on break-
away layups. But DeSoto answered with
11 straight points to close out the quarter.
"We got an early jump right away, but
we didn't carry the momentum like we
should've," Zwayer said. "We got too
complacent after we came out with a 6-0
lead."
Oness said his team's ability to rally
with a limited roster is a credit to his play-
ers' work ethic.
"It's a real testament to those kids," he
said. "They've done everything that
we've asked. They're the ones that did it
all year long and we got rid of the ones
that didn't and the ones that couldn't cut
it. These are the ones that hung in, and it's
really paying off for us."
"We've gone through the same thing,"


SCOTT DRESSEUNews-Sun
Avon Park's Bo Comadore, who led the Devils with 21 points, flies into the lane for a
layup Friday night against DeSoto.


Zwayer said. "We don't have five players;
we have nine, but-we started with 15."
With the night that Sheldon Shine had
against the Devils, the Bulldogs (9-13
overall, 6-4 in District 10-3A) didn't seem


to need any more players.
The sophomore star had a season-high
34 points, getting 13 of them in the fourth

Streaks rip Lemon Bay to

clinch top seed in district


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
A.C. Wilson launches a jump shot for Sebring
Friday night.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING The streak is gone,
but the Streaks aren't going any-
where.
Sebring's string of 11 consecutive
wins ended at Lehigh on Tuesday, but
before a raucous home crowd Friday,
the Blue Streaks rallied from an early
11-point deficit to clinch the regular
season District 14-4A championship
with a 69-48 win over Lemon Bay.
"We showed just what we should
be showing at this time of year, that
through adversity, we still can over-
come, and get back and pull off a
great win," Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris said.
Lemon Bay (12-9, 5-3 in the dis-


trict) shooting guard Brett Ittersagen,
one of 14-4A's top scorers and 3-point
threats, exploded for 13 points in the

first quarter, but the
Streaks (17-5, 7-1) held
him to only four more
the rest of the way, and
held the Manta Rays to
1-for-12 shooting in the
third quarter.
"We made some
adjustments at halftime.
We weren't getting
back on defense,"
Harris said. "They were


getting a lot of sprint-outs, fast break
layups the first half, and we were not
getting back."

Lehigh handles Sebring in final


By ALEX ACKEMANN
Special to the News-Sun
LEHIGH ACRES The magic that
carried Sebring to the District 14-4A
championship game was noticeably
absent Friday night at James Adams
Memorial Stadium.
Seventy-two hours after their
momentous shootout victory over
Lemon Bay in the semifinal round of the
tournament, the Blue Streaks suffered a
4-0 shellacking at the hands of host and
top seed Lehigh Senior High in the title
tilt.
As a result, Sebring (7-10-3) will hit
the road to take on District 13-4A cham-
pion St. Petersburg-Lakewood (10-3-2)
in a Region 4-4A quarterfinal at 7 p.m.
on Thursday.


"We didn't play the game that we win
with," said fourth-year coach. Sebring
Tim Boulay. "Sometimes when you get

to this level, some players
think they need to carry
the team on their shoul-
ders, and our team doesn't
work well that way. We
win as a team and lose as
a team."
Lehigh (14-4-3), which
tied Sebring 0-0 in
December but never lost a
district game, left little
doubt that they were


deserving champions. Speedy senior
Lightning forward Yoimar Avila burst
through the Streaks' defense and sent a
shot past sophomore goalkeeper Carl


Belcher 24 minutes in.
Lehigh went up by two goals 11 min-
utes later on a penalty kick by junior
Richard Simmons after another
Lightning striker was taken down in the
box.
"Lehigh has excellent passing,"
Sebring junior sweeper Paul Ashley
said. "They're a good team. We just
came up short."
Lehigh added two goals in the second
half, and dominated time of possession
with crisp passes that frustrated Sebring
players into a string of yellow cards.
Defensively, Ashley played an
aggressive game, and sophomore Sam
Klatt prevented a fifth Lightning goal,

nine points down to snap Avon
Park's five-game winning
streak.
Avon Park (8-11, 5-5)'led 50-
41 before 3-pointers from
Darren Blackmon and Jarred
Allen keyed an 8-0 DeSoto run
that made it a one-point game.
The Devils then pulled back
out to a 56-51 lead before Shine
took over, giving the Bulldogs
the lead by himself with some
help from Avon Park fouls, con-
verting a four-point play fol-
lowed by a three-point play to
make it 58-56 for DeSoto with
1:20 left.
The Bulldogs led 59-56
when the Devils made a crucial
mistake when Strange lost the
handle on the ball while going
up for a potential game-tying 3-
pointer, leading to a Shine
layup with 18 seconds left to
make it a five-point game.
DeSoto had fouls to give, and

"They did nothing to get us
off our game. We got in foul
trouble," Lemon Bay head
coach Tom Catanzarite said.
"My three best kids had three
fouls at halftime."
The foul problems continued
in the second half, and with the
Rays' best big men on the
bench, Sebring took control of
the glass.
"That's what we told them
we wanted to do, we wanted to
control the boards," Harris said.
"And we've got guys, in Kevin
(Dixon) and Weston (Brooks)
and Joe (Aaron), who should be
able to control the boards no
matter who we play. That's a lot
of power under there."
Dixon, in particular, broke
out in the fourth quarter, scor-
ing 12 of his game-high 18
points and grabbing the bulk of
his team-high nine rebounds.
"He plays a big part of our
offense, and I ride him hard,
and I ride him because I know
what he's capable of doing,"
Harris said. "And he had a big
fourth quarter, a very big fourth
quarter. And that was big for us.
That was very big for us."

the Devils could get a shot off.
The 3-point try missed and


Greg Perry surged in the sec-
ond half as well to match the 15
points he had in Sebring's first
win against Lemon Bay this
season, and Weston Brooks
added 11 while shutting down
Ittersagen on the defensive end.
"I demanded Weston not let
him get a shot off, and if he got
a shot off, Weston was coming
out of the game," Harris said
with a smile. "I do that with
Weston because he's so athletic,
he looks for challenges. He gets
bored if he doesn't have a chal-

Brooks answered the bell,
and in so doing was a micro-
cosm of his team on Friday,
which had to win or risk finish-
ing in a three-way tie with
Lemon Bay and Lehigh.
"So I stressed to them, if you
want to. be the No. 1 seed,
you've got to take care of busi-

and did that," Harris said.
"After winning. 11 straight, you
kind of get accustomed to win-

loss, it's like a shell shock to
you. It was very quiet on the
way back that night. I didn't
have to say anything. They
knew how important this was,
and they stepped up."


DeSoto rebounded the ball and
ran out the clock.
Bo Comadore finished with
21 points for the Devils and

Senior Jorge Ortega and freshman Danny
Grimaldo tried to get the Streaks' offense going,
but Lehigh's defense was up to their challenges
and Lightning midfielders regularly recovered
quickly to provide help.


The title was the second in three seasons for
Lehigh, which will host District 13-4A runner-up
Bradenton-Southeast (12-6-1) in their regional
game.
Bus trouble caused Sebring to arrive just
before the scheduled 7 p.m. start at Lehigh. The
Streaks had to shorten their warm-up routine as a
result, but that wasn't the reason for their defeat.
"We just didn't play- like we know how to
play," Belcher said. "Our heads weren't in it
tonight. They were a better team."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jun MAleroii

Still lighting

up my life
Like a sunheam dances
across a room creating
designs on the welcoming
walls, he decorated my life
with light-hearted laughter,
music, tenderness and
charm.
He came unexpectedly
after years of praying, hop-
ing and yielding.
In spite pf the rough times
of enduring a divorce and
the .. .,i|lll ii.', i1 W new role
of head of household and
single parent, those seven
years had been good years,
too.
I learned to depend on
God in ways I never had
dreamed would be necessary.
I developed my relationship
with my heavenly Father and
longed to be the daughter he
wanted me to be. The Lord
helped me develop as a per-
son and encouraged me to
sing and reach out to other
single moms.
The precious gift of my
son filled my world with joy
and companionship. I loved
sharing my faith with him
and teaching him everything
I knew.
We loved every season
and jumped into the snow of
winter, the puddles of spring
rain, the splash of ocean
waves and the crunch of fall
leaves. Life was good.
But, admittedly, I longed
for that adult companion that
would be my soul mate in
life; and, the right man to be
head of our home and to be
daddy to my son. I continu-
ally prayed that if God had
someone for me, I would
just know it.
That may sound a bit
flighty. But, actually it was
steeped in a deep faith that
God would provide the
knowing. And, he did.
During times of uncertain-
ty and longing, it's vital to
turn td God and not away
from him. When we go our
own way, dangers lurking in
ever corner seek to trip us
up.
But when we walk with
God, he guides us away
from those prowling threats.
With our eyes fixed on him,
we walk securely knowing
his plans are best.
'For I know the plans I
have for you,' declares the
Lord, 'plans to prosper you
and not to harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future.'
"(Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
Persistent prayer helps
develop our relationship with
God and build character.
Then, in God's perfect tim-
ing, we're ready to receive
his answer and to handle it
as the gift it is.
By the time God intro-
duced my soul mate to me, I
was ready to receive IKen as
God's provision for me -
even adding two more sons
as a bonus. All the puzzle
pieces came together: Our
values, love of music and
singing, desire to serve God
as a couple and family, and
so much more.
Though I had taken a few
wrong turns along the road,
God had been faithful and I
knew that this was the man I
had prayed for all my life.
"Then you will call upon
me and come and pray to
me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek me and find
me when you seek me with
all your heart." (Jeremiah
29: 12 & 13, NIV)
And, to this day, Ken's
still lighting up my life.
Happy 23rd anniversary!
Selah.

Jennifer is committed to her goal of 'performing
Appalachian music with the integrity it
deserves," and, given her true, clear soprano
voice, natural stage presence and sensitive
accompaniment style on her dulcimer or guitar,
she has no problem beguiling audiences the
world over; leaving them to wonder how a
concert offolk music could please the ear like
usually only good chamber music can.

ARTS & LEISURE


Authors, musicians, actors leave mark on black history


We're celebrating our
nation's rich heritage during
Black History Month by high-
lighting people and titles you
may not yet have taken home.
National Medal of Arts recip-
ient Judith Jamison was part of
the famous dance group headed
by Alvin Ailey. As one of the
stars of The Alvin Ailey
American Dance Theatre, she
traveled the world presenting
African-American life in dance.
She is now the group's artistic
director and her autobiography
Dancing Spirit is available at
our libraries.
Pulitzer Prize winning play-
wright August Wilson has been
writing since his teens. His
plays about African-American
life and culture are partially
represented in our collection of
three "Fences: A Play," "Joe
Turner's Come and Gone," and
"The Piano Lesson," available
on video and DVD. Wilson is
one of America's best-known
playwrights.
If you've seen the Whoopi
Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey
award-winning film, "The
Color Purple," you've been
introduced to the genius of
Georgia-born Alice Walker.


Writing about the
struggles of black
women to overcome
oppression through
faith, self-worth,
family, and commu-
nity,
Alice's talents are
displayed in poetry,
short stories, and
essays. We own a
number of her titles:
"Absolute Truth in
the Goodness of the
Earth: New Poems,"


LIBRARY LINES

Carolyn
Hesselink


"Living by the Word:
Selected Writings, 1973-1987,"
"By the Light of My Father's
Smile" (in print and audio cas-
sette), "The Color Purple" (in
large print, video and DVD),
"Anything We Love Can be
Saved: A Writer's Activism,"
and "Her Blue Body Everything
We Know: Earthling Poems,
1965-1990 Complete."
The Children's Defense
Fund, the brainchild of Marian
Wright Edelman, has raised bil-
lions of dollars to help impover-
ished children and their fami-
lies. As a civil rights movement
lawyer, Edelman worked in the
South, then moved to
Washington, D.C., where she


began the Children's
Defense Fund.
In 2002, Edelman
was presented the
Presidential Medal of
Freedom, our nation's
highest civilian
award. Books we
own authored by her
are "Families in Peril:
An Agenda for Social
Change," "Lanterns:
A Memoir of
Mentors" and "The
Measure of our


Success: A Letter to
My Children and Yours."
It would be hard to find the
person who did not like Bill
Cosby. This soft-spoken come-
dian and educator has touched
millions with his books
"Childhood," "Fatherhood,"
"Love and Marriage," "Time
Flies" and "I am What I
Ate...and I'm Frightened! We
also have these titles: "Bill
Cosby, Himself" (video);
"Congratulations! Now
What?," "Cosbyology: Essays
and Observations From the
Doctor of Comedy," and "Bill
Cosby is a Very Funny Fellow"
(CD). Cosby has been the recip-
ient of the Presidential Medal of


Freedom.
Musician, record producer,
songwriter Quincy Jones has
used his talents in many areas,
including the organizing of the
2004 "We Are the Future" con-
cert which raised funds for chil-
dren in Afghanistan, Ethiopia,
and other war-ravaged coun-
tries. He produced the all-time
best-selling record "Thriller"
for Michael Jackson, and also
the song that helped raise mil-
lions for Africans dying of
hunger, "We Are the World."
He provided the music to
"Roots," which we have on
DVD, and he was a music pro-
ducer for "The Color Purple."
Enjoy his music on our CD
"Quincy Jones."

I.u ,,,,


As a painter with a national rep-
utation, she has been accepted
into a number of prestigious
juried exhibitions including The
Allied Artists of America and
the Oil' Painters of America.
She was a finalist in two "Artist
Magazine" competitions. She is
represented in galleries across.
the country.
Barter's-paintings depict her
fascination with light and
atmosphere.
"I am constantly striving to
capture depth and dimension,"
Barter said. "Working from life,
whether it's from flowers or a
model, is exhilarating and ever-
changing."
Barter became interesting in
drawing and painting in high
school when a friend invited her
to paint Christmas scenes on
ANIL


watercolor paper and note
cards. Her interest continued
through college, where she took
every art history class offered
as well as numerous watercolor
and drawing classes. She
attended Parson's School of
Design in New York City and
earned a degree in journalism
from the University of Central
Florida.
While working in commer-
cial art, Barter stumbled onto an
oil painting workshop by Gregg
Kreutz.
"Seeing what he could do
with minimal brush strokes -
such rich darks and glowing
lights, such depths it was
overwhelming. Oil painting
became my consuming pas-
sion," Barter said.
: Barter continues to study


I


with Kreutz, the author of
"Solving Problems for Oil
Painters," and has studied under
the guidance of Barbara Tiffany
at the Maitland Art Center. She
has made a number of treks to
Taos, N.M., to study with mas-
ter painters David Leffel and
Sherrie McGraw.
Barter's work is a part of the
permanent collection of The
Gulf Coast Museum of Art and
has been seen in the Oil
Painters of America National
Exhibit, the Festival of the
Masters, the Winter Park Art
Show, the Three by Three Show
at the Maitland Art. Center and
the Arts Festival of Atlanta, Ga.

Kevin and Cindy Spencer will have more then tricks up their sleeves
when they bring their nationally fahfous illusionist show to the
South Florida Community College Auditorium. The Spencers will be
performing feats of magic at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.


Illusionists making


magic at SFCC


AVON PARK Master
magicians Kevin and Cindy
Spencer will be bringing the art
of illusion to the South Florida
Community College
Auditorium for a single per-
forniance on Thursday.
The Spencers have been
compared to David
Cooperfield, Harry Blackstone
Jr. and the late Doug Henning.
They have spent more than a
decade defining the art of illu-
sion by infusing, magic with
movement and cloaking it in
music and physical expression.
In January 2003, the
Spencers made magic and
sports history when they "van-
ished" the Stanley Cup for the
National Hockey League as a
kickoff to' the NHL All-Star
Weekend, in Fort Lauderdale.
They made the cup reappear,
along with Hockey Hall of
Fame legend Larry Robinson.
With one of the largest tour-
ing illusion companies in the
nation, the Spencers transport


more than 12 tons of state-of-
the-art illusions and special
effects from city to city.
Their high-tech stage show
features dazzling special
effects, puzzling feats of leg-
erdemain, cutting-edge illu-
sions and side-splitting come-
dy. They, combine scenery,
music, lighting, special effects,
audience interaction and illu-
sions to produce a powerful
theatrical experience for the
entire family.
The Spencers have been
named Performing. Arts
Entertainers of the year six
times, sharing the title with
only one other magician,
Copperfield, and holding the
title longer than any other per-

,Te show will begin at 7:30
p.m. in the SFCC Auditorium.
Tickets are $24, $22 and $20.
To purchase tickets, call the
SFCC Box Office at 453-6661
from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
weekdays.


You are invited to enjoy the
beautiful wild fields to learn
more about them and most of
all to treat them with respect.

Goldenrod'
Goldenrod is a handsome
perennial plant, about two feet
tall with numerous small golden
yellow flowers. Goldenrod is
found in woodland and flowers
from mid to late summer.
Goldenrod is perhaps the first
plant to think of for upper respi-
ratory catarrh, whether acute or
chronic. It may be used in com-
bination with other herbs in the
treatment of influenza. It is also
used in flower arrangement.

Wild phlox
Wild phlox, or Phlox drum-
mondii, is a native of Texas and
near by states is now so wildy
and well-established in Florida
that it is one off our most abun-
dant spring wild flowers. It
occurs in many colors and
shades and is prominent along
roadside.
In spring Phlox displays
showy, five-lobed tubular flow-
ers that can be white, red,
magenta, lavender, or pink and
usually have a lighter-colored
"eye" in the center. The flowers
are about one inch in diameter


and, like the leaves
and stems, covered
with glandular
"hairs."
Meadow beauty
Meadow beauty, or
Rhexia alifanus, has
several species in the
states. Most are pink
or white flowered
and bloom from late
spring into flat woods,
bogs and roadside
ditches.


GROWING SEASON

Highlands County
Master Gardeners


About a dozen species of
meadow-beauty are native to
Florida. It blooms from spring
through summer.
Royal palm
Royal palm is known as
Roystoonea regia, and the name
says it all! This is truly an aris-
tocrat of the plant kingdom, this
palm makes a memorable
impression wherever it is
grown. Massive and symmetri-
cal with a smoothly sculpted
trunk this palm looks almost
artificial, like a denizen of an
idealized Disney landscape. But
it is real and lends a distinctive
air to parkways and boulevards
all over South Florida.
The Cuban royal palm
(Roystonea regia) is the species
most often encountered. Its

eight inch long
leaflets are
arranged in
rows along the
10' length of
bright green
pinnate leaves.
The Florida
royal palm is
similar to the
Cuban except
that the trunk is a
simple column
that lacks the


Cuban's curvaceous figure.
Both have smooth light gray
trunks that look as if they had
been cast from concrete. Both
produce a large three-foot to
four-foot inflorescence on
which both male and female


flowers are borne.
The Florida royal palm is
native to the cypress swamps of
south Florida, but it is disap-
pearing from the wild.
The beautiful royal is readily
available in areas where it can
be grown. With a little care this
palm will reward with fast
growth that is rare for a palm.
The royal palm is not partic-
ular about soil, but likes bright
sunny conditions.
Next week I will continue
with the yellow pitcher plant.

Anna R. Coley, is a Master
Gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.

An inspirational thought

A &IN '. I Corinthians 1:20-29, "For
Y'ou see S'our calling, bretlIrecI.
that not many wise according
S- to the flesh, not many mighty,
T I^ not many noble, are called.
S| aa But God has chosen the
foolish things of the world to.
put to shame the wise, and -
God has chosen the weak things of the world to
put to shame the things which are mighty; and
the base things of the world and the things
wvhicli are despised God has chosen, and tlhe
things vwhiclh are not, to bring to nothing the
things that arc, that no flesh should glory in
His presence." Here if you notice, God's plan of
Salvation does not conform to the world's
priorities. Our salvatioA is ,ore valuable than
all the wealth and stuccss .pursued by the world.
God uses what is colsIdered foolish in this
world to reveal His triiith, so that He alone will
receive the glory. Th.lieist verse says. no flesh
should glory in His presence. Be Encouraged!

Chuck Ullman, David Naylor and Doug Andrews (from left) are three of the members of Emanon. [Da% i,
Collister, who plays bass, is not pictured.


Emanon improvising jazz for concert series


The local jazz
group Emanon will
be appearing at the
"Music in the Park"
concert Saturday,
Feb. 12, at Highlands
Hammock State Park.
This one is the per-
fect date night for the
Valentine weekend,
so all you guys, take REAL
note. It's a simple, -
inexpensive and Doroth
memorable way to
celebrate. Call a
babysitter, pack a picnic basket
or treat her to dinner at the
Hammock Inn. The kick back,
relax and enjoy the great jazz
tunes.
Emanon consists of David
Naylor, Doug Andrews, Davis
Collister and Chuck Ullman.
Together, they bring nearly a
century of performing experi-
ence to the stage. Each musi-
cian has a long and unique per-
formance history. All have
played locally and throughout
the United States and even
abroad. Interestingly, Emanon
doesn't spend time in practice
but improvises at each perform-
ance. Improvisation is the heart
of their music.
All the men say that it is fun
to be a part of a group where the
performers are top-notch and
- it's even better for those who


F

hy


get to enjoy their
musical talents.
S-. "We just love to
play and especially
to play jazz," said
Collister, the bass
player.
"The jazz music
1 that Emanon plays is
not only fun, but also
LORIDA listener friendly,"
added Andrews.
Harris Ullman said, "It's
-the improvisation
that makes our music
so special. We feed off each
other as we are inspired by what
the other is doing."
Their performance offers the
community an opportunity to
experience something out of the
ordinary, uncommon and spon-
taneous. The relaxing, fun
forum gives the musicians the
opportunity to show what they
can do and be completely cre-
ative.
Ullman remarked that cre-
ativity is his favorite thing
about this group.
"Our individuality is
expressed through our music,
then reflected within the
group," he says. "If you are
tired of the same old thing and
want to experience something
new in Highlands County, come
hear tu pl.N."
