SEBRING While the lat-

initial training, city officials in
Avon Park are wanting to start a
CERT team of their own.
The Highlands County


School Board.team received its
certification Monday.
"They took the final written
exam, they did a practical exer-
cise and everybody passed,"
Captain Preston Colby of
Florida Public Safety said.
It was Colby who first sug-
gested the development of such
teams to augment safety servic-
es in case of emergencies.
The school board CERT team

2005 Highlands



County Fair

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Local businesses and organizations will begin set-
ting up their displays at the Highlands County Fairgrounds today
in preparation for the 2005 edition of the Highlands County Fair.
The gates will open to the public at 5 p.m. Friday with exhibits,
displays and plenty of rides and entertainment.
Scheduled for shows Friday evening are the Master Hypnotist,
the Lloyd Mabrey Show, Rick K & The All Nighters a 1950s
style show band and the Kandu & Company magic show.
The $1.98 Beauty Contest, where men dress in women's cloth-
ing, is set for 7 p.m. in the Expo Pavilion. Saturday evening will
be the inaugural hot dog eating contest.
Reithoffer Shows will be handling the rides again this year.
They began assembling the myriad of thrill rides, children's
amusements, games and displays earlier this week.
The chickens and rabbits will be on display in the Sebring Ford
Small Animal Barn starting Friday evening. The hogs, steers and
heifers won't move into the new livestock barn until this weekendd'
Highlands County 4-H advisor Shareen Chiles said if registra-
tions are any indication of this year's participation, it appears this
year the numbers of competition livestock should run fairly true to
last year.
"We did lose a few animals due to the stress of the hurricanes,"
she said.
The latest numbers include 34 steers, 20 heifers and about 120
hogs that have been registered to compete. However, she said,
those numbers were expected to drop somewhat.
"I think we've lost a lot more animals this year compared to past
years. A lot of the families haven't had the time and energy to put
into the animals they have in the past because they're recovering
too," she said.
Chiles .said the problems came not only with the stress to the
animals, but also a priority shift with families who also had to
recover from the series of storms.
Also this year both the dairy heifer and lamb categories have
been discontinued at least for the time being. Whether or not
they might be reinstated in the future is in the hands of the junior
livestock committee.
The new livestock barn was completed just in time for the fair.
It is 4,000 square feet larger than the old L-shaped building and
moreover, it is modular. That means during fair week pens can be

third team to be organized in
Highlands County. The first
was organized through South
Florida Community College,
the second was the Avon Park
area of the school board and the
most recent crew is comprised
of school board employees in
the Sebring/Lake Placid area.
In all, there now are 50 mem-
bers between the two organiza-
tions who are trained to deal
with emergency situations in


the Highlands County school
system.
The team roster is a cross
section of different school
employees ranging from main-
tenance personnel, to teachers
to administrators.
"We designed it particularly
to deal with problems that
might arise at a school site,"
Bible said. "The teams would
go' to wherever the problem
would exist on a campus should


we have a natural disaster or
some kind of a major problem."
He said the second training
session went more smoothly
than the first.
"We certainly understood the
program a little bit better," he
said, noting that both groups
had been quick learners.
Bible said plans also call for
a third, smaller team, to be
trained for the district offices.

Two scarf-down contests set


for Highlands County Fair


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sin
SEBRING For the first
time in recent memory, there
will be not one but two different
opportunities for area residents
to demonstrate their eating
prowess.
The first one will be this
weekend when hopefuls can get
behind a table and show just
how many hot dogs they can
shovel down.
The second one will come
next week during the inaugural


Girl Scout Cookie eating con-
test.
The hot dog eating contest
will be in the Expo Pavilion on
Saturday night. Richard Martin
is the organizer for that event.
He said there would be opportu-
nities to sign up at 2, 4 and 6
p.m. Saturday with the actual
contest set for 8 p.m.
Only 15 entrants will be able
to try their gastronomic luck on
this inaugural go round. Martin
said no small children would be
permitted, and any potential


contestants under the age of 18
would have to provide parental
consent.
Organizers are providing
ample incentive to try.
"The prize money will be
$100 for first prize, $50 for sec-
ond place and $25 for third," he
said.
The contest will be loosely
based on the Nathan's
International Hot Dog Eating
Contest where contestants are

SEBRING Highlands County commission-
ers like the idea of strategic planning. They just
want some results first.
Strategic planning could help the county plan
for changes that haven't happened yet. County
Administrator Carl Cool said the county could
hire a consultant to help facilitate a strategic
planning session. Glades Electric Cooperative
may even offer to pay for that consultant, he
said, as an investment in the county.
"We need five enthusiastic people to do this,"
Commission Chairman Andrew Jackson said. "If
(there's) not whole-hearted enthusiastic support
for this, I'm not interested in going forward."
Highlands County has seen moderate but
steady growth in roads, real estate development,
and industry in the last decade. During
Tuesday's meeting, Commissioner Guy Maxcy
held up a 1956 phone directory that listed
Arcadia, Avon Park, Bowling Green, Fort
Meade, Indian Town, Lake Placid, Okeechobee.
Sebring, and Wauchula. It was less than a half-
inch thick, he said.
"We've seen a lot of growth. Who in their
right mind would have thought U.S. 27 would be
six lanes or that we'd have 100,000 people?" he
said Tuesday. "In another 15-20 years, this will

be unbelievable."
Commissioner Bob Bullard favors planning,
but county departments together have 52 plans,
all of which had consultants, but many of which
may not be implemented. Bullard didn't know
about many of them and had read even fewer.
Before spending tax money, Glades Electric
money, and time and energy, he wants county
commissioners to know what they want out of
the strategy and how they are going to use the
finished product. He has asked the other 66
Florida counties to send any information they
have on strategic plans and how effective it has
been for them.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart said she was
trained to have a personal strategic planning
focus and sometimes gets accused of being
mechanical in her thinking, but said strategic
plans can help the county find better ways of
doing things. Rather than depend on the success
or failure of other counties to judge the process,
she suggests learning from what they've done
and doing it better.
Maxcy said he thinks the county does a good'
job of planning, while Commissioner Edgar
Stokes agreed with Bullard.
Cool said while commissioners wait for pro-
posals from facilitators to run a planning session,

Six traffic deaths in
less than six weeks
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A red light
mishap Monday on U.S. 27 at
Sparrow Avenue has claimed
another life.
Aileen R. Larpenter, 66, of
Sebring, a front-seat passenger
in one of the cars, died from
injuries she received in the
wreck.
Florida Highway Patrol has
not filed any charges. Due to
circumstances, fault can't be
determined at this time. The
accident is still under investiga-
tion.
What happened
At 9:55 a.m. Monday, a
turquoise 1998 Mercury Grand
Marquis driven by Gail
Elizabeth Escobar, 36, of
Sebring, was on U.S. 27 in a left
turn lane for Sparrow Avenue.
The intersection has a green
arrow that turns to a green ball
when oncoming traffic has a
green light.
According to Lucy Thomas
of Sebring, in the turn lane
directly behind Escobar, the
light for through-traffic turned
yellow when Escobar turned.
Franklin Trenton Gordon, 32, of
Sebring, driving a Ford pickup
southbound in the center lane,
came through the intersection.
His truck, reading Gordon's
Drywall and Finishing, was
pulling a small work trailer.
The Ford slammed into the
Mercury's right side with its
front right corner, caved in both
passenger side doors and spun
the car counter-clockwise until
it faced south. The truck
swerved to the right, circled the
traffic signal pole and knocked


Highlandaires
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The
Highlandaires Big Band Inc.
begins playing at the Sebring
Civic Center on Lake Jackson
at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Subsequent dates include Feb.
24, March 10 and 31. The band
members and leader David
Naylor invite the public to join
us for an evening of both danc-
ing and listening pleasure at the
cost of a mere $5 a person.
This year the band will con-
clude its performances at 9:30
p.m. unless encores are request-
ed. Shortly thereafter, accord-
ing to trumpeter-band leader
David Naylor it's "time to drive
home safely and take your vita-
mins." Reservations and infor-
mation can be obtained by call-
ing Betty at 471-1086. Anyone
with standing reservations from
last season should contact Betty
promptly.
On Thursday when the band
is not playing for dances, the
musicians usually rehearse at 7
p.m. in the First Methodist
Church of Sebring. Interested
musicians, teenager to senior
adult, wishing to audition or sit
in during rehearsals may con-
tact musical conductor David
Naylor at 385-2884 or band
president Chuck White at 471-
2202 or 386-4332.
This season the band's saxo-
phone section returns intact. In
the center of the section sits
lead alto George Corwin, a for-
mer pupil of the great Hymie
Scherzer who played such won-
derful lead alto for both the


down a crosswalk signal post
before stopping in the northeast
corner of a Shell gasoline sta-
tion parking lot.
Jim Fuchs of Sebring, who
was inside the store for a cup of
coffee and a newspaper, heard
the bang, saw the truck spin into
the lot, knocking over the signal
post. He immediately called
911 on his cellular phone.
"I thought (the truck) would
come through the store," he
said.
Injuries
When help arrived, Gordon
was sitting on the tail edge of
his trailer, alongside Travis
Escobar, 9, of Sebring, who was
riding in the rear left passenger
of the car. He had gotten out of
the car, walked over and sat
down. Behind them sat a small
black pit bull puppy, possibly
Labrador mixed-breed dog
leashed up in the bed of the
trailer.
Sun 'N Lake of Sebring Fire
Department used the Jaws of
Life to rescue Anthony Escobar,
12, of Sebring, from the back
seat of the car. Highlands
County Emergency Medical
Services and members of the
West Sebring Volunteer Fire
Department removed Larpenter
from the front seat through the
driver's door and began trying
to revive her.
She died from her injuries at
10:48 a.m. at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center in
Sebring. Anthony Escobar was
airlifted to Tampa General
Hospital where he is listed in
fair condition.
.Gordon, Gail Escobar, and
Travis Escobar were all treated
and released at Florida
Hospital. The dog was unin-
jured and was picked up by a

Teacher missed
Pastor Tom Schankweiler of
Community Bible Church in
Avon Park said Larpenter, Gail
Escobar and Lucy Thomas all
were a great help to the church
before they began attending a
new church in Sebring recently.
Larpenter and Gail Escobar
both taught at Community
Christian Academy, which the
church ran during the 1990s.
Thomas and her husband got
involved in the church when
one of her children attended the
school.


Big Band performs Thursday


Benny Goodman and Artie
Shaw orchestras.
Next to George sits tenor
player Bill Wolcott. Bill is
happy to return to the band as
he has just survived cataract
surgery on both eyes.
Chuck White provides solid
alto sax play as well but has not
yet given up his "day job" as
proprietor of Sebring's Cue
Time Billiards.
Tony Faro returns as the
band's lead tenor saxist and
soloist on such numbers as
"Polkadots and Moonbeams."
Last but not least is baritone
saxist "Okeechobee Joe"
Staedelin who has written
numerous charts for the
Highlandaires.
Returning on trumpet all the
way from Italy is Long Island,
N.Y.'s, own David Naylor.
Dave plays lead and a majority
of the solos.
Hailing from Winter Haven
is talented trumpeter Allan
Schwarb who lends his valu-
able experience to the ensem-
ble.
The trombone section is led
by entrepreneur Jim Pack, a for-
mer member of the United
States Air Force.
Also present in the section is
Avon Park's Al Loveless, the
last active charter member of
the band.
Mark Wold of Winter Haven
adds his considerable talent to
this group of "slip horns."
The rhythm section would
love to have a piano player
again. However, the band is


propulsed to new heights by
drummer Tom O'Brien and
bassist Stu Dubbs.
Guitarist Bruce Kirshner of
New York is scheduled to join
this section of the Empire State
in mid Fefary.
Perhap'he most popular
member of the Higrtiiafitres
and certainly the most attractive
is vocalist Ellie Faro.
The Highlandaires were
formed some 20-plus years ago
in 1982, with their first per-
formance in January for the fol-
lowing year. Throughout its
existence the band has
remained committed to its goal
of keeping the big band sound
alive and well in South Central
Florida.


Some turn lanes to improve, others studied


Highlands County Engineer
'Ramon Gavarrete is working
with the Florida Department of
Transportation to change at
least three U.S. 27 intersections
in Sebring. Plans are in place
for Vicki Drive, but Hammock
Road and Sparta Road are still
being studied. Right now,
Sparrow Avenue is not being
studied for changes.
Vicki Drive had a fatal
left-turn wreck on Halloween
night 2003. Since then, engi-
neers, law enforcement and cit-
izens have looked for a solu-
tion. The 2003 wreck was
blamed on poor visibility and
need for a more restrictive left-
turn traffic signal. FDOT has
refused to alter the signal.


Gavarrete said his department
will offset turn lanes at Vicki
Drive to be like those at Howey
Road, giving left-turning
motorists a better view of
oncoming traffic.
Hammock Road already
has a crossing as part of the
Hammock Road Trail project.
With 8,000 or more auto trips
per day, it could benefit from a
longer left-turn lane on U.S. 27.
Sparta Road has no pedes-
trian crossing yet. Motorists
entering northbound U.S. 27 at
Lakeview Drive sometimes
wait in the merging lane for
traffic to clear before crossing
three traffic lanes to reach the
Sparta Road turn lane.

Hall charged as unlicensed contractor during emergency


- By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK A man who
allegedly took money for roof-
ing services he never did has
been charged with a contracting
violation during a state of emer-
gency.
Ronnie Eugene Hall, 38, of
Sebring, has been charged with
grand theft and contracting
without a license during a state
of emergency. Bail has been set


at $2,000.''
Unlicensed contracting is a
misdemeanor, but doing so dur-
ing a state of emergency is a
felony, under Florida law.
Hurricane season is a prime
example of a time when such
practices take place. Florida
legislators passed protective
laws after Hurricane Andrew to
protect consumers from goug-
ing and other illegal business
practices during a storm's after-


math.
In this case, a 64-year-old
woman who lives on North
Lowell Road had extensive roof
damage from the 2004 hurri-
cane season. She got a business
card from Heartland
Contractors that named Hall, so
she contacted him and set up a
verbal contract to do roof
repairs.
She told Highlands County
sheriff's deputies that she need-


HALL
HALL


ed a' contract
and needed to.
know- if the
defendant had
a permit. He
told her he did
not make out
contracts, and
all she needed


from him was a handshake
because he was trustworthy.
Based on this, she assumed
he had a contractor's license for


the repairs. : ,
On Nov. 12, Hall gave her an
estimate of $11,133.72 for serv-
ice and materials and asked for
a down payment of $5,440.92.
She wrote him a personal
check, made payable to him. He
deposited that check the same
day into his account.
He was supposed to start the
job on Nov. 23, and get paid the
rest when he finished. He never
started, never tried to call her,


and never tried to return ter
money, according to arnst
reports.
A check with the Florila
Department of Business aid
Professional Regulatiois
showed that he wasn't even
licensed as a roofing contractor
in the state of Florida. He alo
doesn't have a Highiands
County Occupational License
as a subcontractor for roofing.

northbound shoulder, facing
east. Gervasi's car was on the
same shoulder, facing north.

Raymond Figueroa, 54, of
Avon Park. The drivers had
minor injuries. King and
Kresge were treated at
Highlands Regional Medical
Center. Gervasi was treated at
Florida Hospital in Lake
Placid.
King was cited for driving
with her lights off, violating
the right of way and having
no proof of insurance.

mated at $50, but damage to
the Mazda was estimated at
$2,000, and the Chrysler was

Social studies teachers at


work choosing new textbook


Stone drawing


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING -- Almost every
year the Highlands County
School District faces the
process of choosing new text-
books for a subject area. Two
years ago reading textbooks
were selected, last year math.
This year social studies text-
books are being reviewed.
The process is a complicated
one because the district strives
to choose textbooks that pro-
vide continuity from one grade
level to another. In addition, the
textbooks have to have read-
able, reliable information and
meet the Sunshine State
Standards. In today's techno-
logical world, textbooks, with
interactive aids like Web sites
and CD Roms are preferred.
The state's department of
education sets the parameters
of content and surveys the pub-
lisher's programs, weeding out
many offerings before local dis-
tricts begin to make their own
choices.
The Highlands County dis-
trict is committed to teacher
input and building a consensus
throughout the district. The


goal is to create a seamless cur-
riculum where one year's work
leads smoothly into the next,
while covering the full range
material.
"I thought it would be tough
because social studies teachers
love to debate," JoAnna
Cochlin, coordinator of second-
ary programs, said. "But, there
has been a great deal of consen-
sus."
To collect teacher input, the
district sent out a form that
social studies teachers were
encouraged to fill out as they
reviewed the textbooks offered.
Publishers sent representa-
tives to present the material and
explain the support programs.
Each book was rated on a
scale of zero to two on each of
26 qualities. For example,
teachers rate the books for cur-
rentness, pacing, rigor of study,
and organization.
Only teachers fill out these
forms, and the winning selec-
tion will be the one with the
most votes. In the event of a tie,
teacher representatives will
determine the final selection.
The deadline for filling in
these forms and returning them


to the district office is March 1.
This is because the books have
to be ordered by April I, so
teachers can have them in their
hands by the end of May, in
time to take home and study
over the summer.
The district and publisher
will conduct a three-day work-
shop during the summer to
review the textbooks and devel-
op lesson plans from it.
Publishers will typically hold
ongoing training and support
sessions throughout the school
year, so a publisher's support
program is one'of the criteria on
the final selection.
The typical curriculum for
Highlands County students is as
follows: K through fifth-grade
- an integrated social studies
approach, with the schools
retaining some flexibility;
sixth-grade world history;
seventh-grade world geogra-
phy; eighth grade U.S. histo-
ry; three credits are required in
high school (grades ninth
through 12) one in world
history, one in U. S. history, and
half a credit each in American
government and economics.


SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun
Finding beauty in the mist of a construction site was just part of the challenge Monday as students
taking lessons from Shirley Callis-Stone attempt to draw the Yellow House at the Highlands Art
League Village. A steam roller lurks in the background as Stone gives a few pointers to Kathleen
Laughter about her drawing. The parking lot at the Yellow House is currently under construction
but lessons continue as usual at the Highlands Art League.

Florida Hospital describes cancer network


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring
Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers were brought up to date on
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center's expanding
cancer services Tuesday morn-
ing by Helen Roorda, of the
Florida Cancer.Center.
The hospital is now part of
the Florida Hospital Cancer
Institute network, a broad
organization including ... ,\cen
Florida Hospital campuses.
The network is one of the
largest radioactive seed implant
programs battling prostate can-
cer in the southeast, and is
ranked third in the nation based
on cancer discharges. Its goal is
to be the best.
Being a part of the network
means its doctors in Highlands
County have ready access to


some of the leading medical
men and women in the field
who serve on the national advi-
sory ooard.
One board member, for
example, is Larry Einhom, the
specialist in testicular cancer
who treated Lance Armstrong
and developed the highly effec-
tive treatment for that cancer.
In addition to national
experts, the network also
includes local doctors who are
specialists in the fikld ai-.. can
provide cutting edge technolo-
gy. Two new practices, that are
a part of this network, have just
opened near the hospital.
Drs. Amit Shah and Syed
Ahmed of Medical Oncology
are dedicated to diagnosing and
treating cancers and blood dis-
orders. They specialize in
chemotherapy, immunotherapy,
and hematology. They have


begun participating in clinical
trials and are well versed in
cancer-related pain control.
Dr. Neenad Shah (no relation
to Amit Shah) practices radia-
tion oncology using state-of-
the-art equipment, like 3D
external beam radiation therapy
or intensity modulated radiation
therapy, which deliver higher
doses while minimizing
involvement of healthy cells.
By being part of the network,
which has 10 sites throughout
the state, physicians have
access to treatment centers else-
where, which means patients
will be able to receive treat-
ments otherwise not available.
"The goal," said Dr. Neenad
Shah, who also spoke to cham-
ber members, "is to keep the
patient at home, with easy
access to the best of treat-
ments."

Teens testify to their faith


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING In front of
more than 330 people Friday
night, a group of young teens
stood up and gave testimony to
their faith in Jesus Christ at the
Youth for Christ annual ban-
quet.
Andrew Katsanis, executive
director of Youth for Christ,
said, "Romans 1 is our passion.
We are not ashamed of the
gospel. Youth For Christ of
Highlands County is passionate
about Jesus and'about sharing
Jesus with every teen in
Highlands County," he said.
Katsanis saved the best two
stories for last when Kayla
Jones and Ainsley Woods
spoke.
Jones, a student at Sebring
High School, told the full house
that she grew up in the church.
"I had the mentality that I
could be a Christian, but still do
bad stuff," she said behind
tears.
While in the seventh-grade,
Jones heard about Youth for
Christ's Campus Life ministry.
She started attending meetings.
"It pretty much saved my
life. I'm not sure where I'd be
going if it wasn't for them,
because they saved me," she
said.
The Youth for Christ campus
ministry is on every high school
and middle school in Highlands
County, as well as Heartland
Christian School.
Ainsley Woods, a senior at
Avon Park High School,
described the ministry as "a
blessing. I realize now what it's
like to be a woman of God."
Woods said the number of
students participating in the
campus ministry were not high
in Avon Park. "We struggled
and last summer I prayed hard,
that I not go out like.this," she


said.
Now, the Avon Park campus
sees about 30-40 students tak-
ing part in the weekly ministry.
"This ministry has shown me
how powerful God is and that
it's OK to be a Christian ... to be
passionately in love with the
one and only God. Without
Him, you're nothing. God is
powerful," she said.
Lauren Taylor, a seventh-
grader at Hill-Gustat Middle
School and a member of First
Baptist Church of Sebring, told
guests that the Campus Life
ministry "is amazing." She said
the ministry has helped her
improve her relationship with
Jesus.
Duane White, a Lake Placid
High School junior, said his
friends all know he is a
Christian.
"Some are OK with it and
have taken part in the Campus
Life ministry, others I'm still
working on," he said.
Katherine Whitaker, a stu-
dent at Avon Park Middle
School, said she used to be too
lazy to get up early for school,
but since taking part in the
Youth For Christ ministry on
her campus, she gets to school
on time.
"It has brought so many of
my friends into the Lord. I hope
we can continue to do this," she
said.
Ashley Thompson, a Lake
Placid High School student,
found that having the ministry
as part of her life was important
when she started high school.
"People are always challeng-
ing us, so this is amazing. Now
they know you are a Christian
and they support you. It helps
me to be the best girl in high
school that I can be. Girl Talk is
the most amazing thing in
school," she said.
Not only is there the Campus


CONTESTS
Continued from 1A
given 12 minutes to consume as many hot dogs as
they can. The national record stands at 53.5 in 12
minutes.
When it comes to the large scale devouring of
Girl Scout cookies, organizer Cindy Chambers
said interest has been keen, even though there
had not been a lot of publicity about it.
"I've had people ask me to put their names in
early but I told them 'I'm sorry, you'll just have
to show up early at the Girl Scout booth at the fair
and sign up,' she said.
There will be three age categories: 6-10 years
of age, 11-17 years old and 18 years and up.
As a matter of logistics, there will only be 10
people allowed in each age category.
"We have time limitations and we have to have
counters," she said.
Registration forms will be available starting
Friday evening when the fair opens.
"Those will be in the Girl Scout exhibit
booth," Chambers said.
There will be no charge to enter the contest and
prizes are being arranged for the quickest and
best cookie eaters.
The contest will be on the stage at the front of
the Independent Midway at the northernmost part
of the fairgrounds. It will be conducted between


Life ministry, but at Sebring
and Lake Placid middle and
high schools there is Girl Talk,
a program 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 program just for the
boys.
Katsanis said the ministry
sessions at the schools are com-
pletely led by students.
"It's the high school students
who are doing the ministering,
but you don't hear about them.
On the news you hear about the
drugs, crime and all that junk.
This is what you should be
hearing about," he said.
Two other teens Dustin
Woods and Casey Laughlin -
also participated in the
evening's program, each
singing a song they specifically
chose for the event.
The annual banquet gave stu-
dents an opportunity to tell how
the ministry has changed their
life, but also gave Katsanis a
chance to tell how the organiza-
tion has grown from three to
10 staff members in recent
years.
After the banquet, Christian
Music Association Female
Vocalist of the Year Ginny
Owens and Johnny Diaz per-
formed in concert.




PLANNING

he can certainly get department
heads together to have them all
working together.
"If we don't identify any
unfunded unmet future needs, it
would be a waste," Cool said,
"but I don't believe it would be
a mistake (to do)."


shows by the hypnotist.
Contestants will have one minute to eat as
many cookies as they can. A variety of different
cookies will be set out on a plate and contestants
must eat them.one at a time.
"Once it's in their mouth they have tp finish it
before they: shove another one in,".she said. "It's
going to be interesting to see the techniques."
Chambers decided on a tight time frame as a
safety measure.
"I really didn't want them to stuff themselves
and get sick. I know how they can do it because I
have seen my grandson do it," she said.
This is the first outing for the contest and
Chambers said it would be a learning experience
for future such games.
Chambers said it was an effort to make the
community more aware of Girl Scouts and Girl
Scout cookies. She said the idea had received a
warm response from fair authorities.
"It's actually a cooperative effort between the
Heart of Florida Girl Scouts and the Highlands
County Fair," she said.
When it comes to overall cookie supply,
Chambers has "just enough for the contest." That
translates into one case of each of the seven dif-
ferent varieties of cookies offered by the Girl
Scouts.
Both organizers said they looked to the con-
tests to provide a lot of entertainment for fair
goers.

West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department Captain Bobby Hicks (left) and Assistant Chief Mike
Deery were recognized Monday evening for rescuing Elijah Crivello-Frazier when he fell into his
grandparents swimming pool last year. Both men were-presented with a photo plaque inscribed
with the message, 'Because you were there, I'm still here.' Hicks also received a Highlands Hero
award presented by the 'News-Sun.' See next Friday's edition for the full story on the 2004
Highlands Heroes.


TEAM
Continued from 1A
The initial team, the SFCC
unit, has been the most active.
They already have been called
out a couple of times. The first
was during the search for a
missing person and the second
was during Hurricane Frances
where they helped to secure the
college campus.
"We've also been called to
standby on three other occa-
sions," said SFCC CERT Team
Coordinator Richard Morey
It was in July of 2003 that the
group of 21 SFCC employees
began building the very first
CERT team by doing team
building exercises at the
school's Criminal Justice
Center.
Like the other teams, the
SFCC team remains a general
purpose unit. Colby explained
that is the first phase of devel-
opment.
"All of the teams have to go
through an entry level, then
later they can start specializ-
ing," he said.
The teams can focus on any-
thing from structure collapse, to
large animal rescue to fire sup-
pression.
Reportedly, new Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton
may be looking to fold the
CERT teams into her office's
emergency response units.
In the past, the CERT teams
have had to wait for grant fund-
ing to begin their training.
However, Colby said with the
increased emphasis on home-
land security, the government
has been helping to underwrite
the effort.
He said the key is for those


people and entities interested to
act in "a timely manner."
"If they wait too long, it
could be a problem," he said.
Colby said that anybody

while at other times the pens
can be removed and the 90-foot
by 160-foot building may be
used for other events.
The building of the barn
began right after last year's fair.


Fair officials said they under-
took the project due to the ever
increasing participants in the
annual livestock show and sale.
In the old building, the maxi-
mum capacity was 107 hogs
and 48 bovine. The new struc-
ture will hold up to 152 hogs
and 70 bovine, plus, fair man-
ager Artie McIntyre said, the
pens will be more spacious.

Because of the new, more effi-

it will be easier for youngsters
who are showing their animals.

Being the director of the
inaugural Spring Fling at
Highlands Little Theatre made
me think of other organiza-
tions I've been a part of and
the impact they have had on
lly personal history.
When it appears that I've
hit a brick wall in searching
for an individual, I consider
their specific interests and
affiliations. Just as I'm a mem-
ber of Highlands Little Theatre
and other organizations, your
lost ancestor may be affiliated
with an organization that has a
directory in which you can
locate that membership.
Books are available at your
library that give the contact
information of associations.
Many organizations have
directories that are published
on a regular basis. These may
have the members' names,
addresses, telephone numbers,
pictures, and all kinds of
things that help identify a
member of your family.
Best sources are profession-
al, business and trade associa-
tions, non-profit organizations,
Chambers of Commerce, char-
ity and community institutions,
grant and estate foundations,
social and service clubs, edu-
cational associations (alumni
directories and high school
annuals), or medical and den-
tal schools and associations'
directories.
Search anything that
requires licensing or certifica-
tion. Working cosmetologists,
nursing staff and fishermen all
must be licensed by the state.
This information may be avail-
Sable to you for research.

_ ... More support needed


Drugs or goals: The choice is yours


The consequences
of drug abuse of
any kind of abuse -
extends much farther
than, say, one's liver.
They extend out-
ward, past the physi-
cal boundary of one's
body, and reverberate
in the lives of one's
family and friends.
Furthermore, the con-
sequences of drug
abuse also ripple out-
ward in time. A per-
son's lethal choice to
abuse drugs today


CHRIS
LEVERIDGE

SEBRING HIGH
SCHOOL


may have consequences months
and years from now, conse-


quences that a person
could never antici-
pate.
It's not a sure
thing, of course.
Abusing drugs does
not guarantee that
your life will end up
in shambles, but it
certainly does
increase the chances.
Studies show that
drug abuse is often
associated with a
number of unsavory
long-term conse-
quences like academ-


ic failure, arrest, unplanned
pregnancy, violent crime,


unemployment and homeless-
ness, according to the 1996
National Survey of American
Attitudes and Substance Abuse:
Columbia University.
It would be safe to say that
most, if not all, of your peers
would not aspire to any of
these consequences. Indeed,
most people would probably
like to avoid homelessness, a
criminal record, or an
unplanned pregnancy. Despite
the lameness of an occasional
class, many people would,
given a choice, prefer to do well
in school.
Sadly, some teens and even
younger kids may feel power-


less to succeed in school, find a
steady job, or even keep them-
selves free from physical harm.
They may live amid poverty or
violence and see no permanent
escape.
In circumstances such as
these, one might ask, why
shouldn't someone abuse
drugs? What could someone
have to lose?
This raises one of the many
complexities of the drug prob-

While the consequences of

A later start
y-. A *--3 _:


might help
By ARIEL VUTO
Sebring High School
"Beep ... Beep ... Beep ..." is
the dreadful sound of my alarm
clock, forced to ring though my
sleeping ears every waking
morning. Next comes that
awful question, the one that
finds its way through the minds
of every sleep-deprived high
school student. "Do I have to
go to school today?"
The answer is no, nobody
has to go to school, which is
why so many people choose to
skip.
Now imagine this example:
It is no longer 6 o'clock in
the morning, it is now 7 and
school does not start at 8, but
rather at 9 and ends at 4 p.m.
not 3.
Can you picture the differ-'
ence on the attendance records?
How about an increase?
One of the many reasons stu-
dents choose not to come to
school is because it starts so
early in the morning.
As a high school student
myself, I understand why it is
so hard to come to school early
in the morning. During winter
months, I cannot bear to get out
of my bed covers into the cold
atmosphere day, not to mention
all the sleep I am missing out
on. Thus, I, along with many
others, choose every now and
then to oversleep. My teachers
are always complaining that
their students do not get
enough sleep. Well, guess
what, it is the school's fault.
"Quit sleeping in class!" is a
common statement that I often
hear. Do you think that extra
hour of sleep would have
helped that boy sitting next to
you in class with his head on
the desk? You bet it would
have.
The athletic students at our
school sometimes get home at
9 p.m. or later after a game.
Add up the extra hour to eat
and shower before bed. It is
now 11 and they have to get up
at 6 a.m. That is seven hours of
sleep, and a growing teen
requires eight to nine hours.
To conclude the point of my
story, school should start at 9
a.m. and end at 4 p.m. The
attendance records would make
a dramatic increase, along with
the attitudes and presence of
students in their classrooms.





0I



for various
By JENNA PONTIUS
Sebring High School
How would you like it if you
scored 15 points at a basketball
game and no one was there to
cheer you on except a couple of
parents and a few students?
The sports at Sebring High
School (and many other
schools) are definitely lacking
school spirit. Football is over
but most students fail to realize
there are still other sports going
on.
Our boys varsity basketball
team has won almost all of their
games, but there are no
announcements of their victo-
ries. Football gets so much
recognition that when a differ-
ent season of sports rolls
around, no one really notices
because they don't get as much
attention.
Our girls junior varsity bas-
ketball finished with a 20-0
record and hardly any people
even know of their remarkable
feat.
"I think that the basketball
team should have a pep rally,
that way the dance team has a
chance to show our competition
routine to the whole student
body; and since the varsity
team has done so well I think
that we should show our sup-
port for them," dancer Shannon
Gillilan said.
Basketball isn't the only
sport that doesn't get a lot of
fans. Let's not forget about the
soccer teams. They work very
hard running around for a cou-
ple hours so they can get better
and when they score that win-
ning goal there is hardly anyone
in the stands to cheer for them.
I have talked to a lot of peo-
ple from different generations
and they said that when they
went to school their Friday


Your Hlonet
385-8


sports
nights usually consisted of
going to a game to cheer for
their peers. They still did the
whole party scene like the kids
these days (because that has
been going on for a long time)
but they would go to a game
before they went off to do their
thing.
When a team wins it is a big
deal to them, especially if it is a
special game like districts or
championships, but they can't
celebrate their happiness with
the rest of the school if no one
really cares about it. There is no
one at school to say "oh, great
game on Saturday night" or
"that was a good goal you
made." If more people were
into the sports, I believe the
team would actually do better at
the sport.
No matter where you are
there is always going to be peo-
ple saying "our school is better
than yours" and what better
way to express that than if our
school was really better then
someone else's in everything.
Our school rival is Avon
Park. We always want to be bet-.
ter than Avon Park in football.
Well, why don't we want to be
better than them in basketball
or track too? We should be able
to walk up to them and say that
our school is better then theirs
without having to say in one
particular sport. We should be
the best in every sport.
I am happy to announce that
I went to the basketball game
Friday night and there were
quite a few people in the stands.
Our school had to give away
free tickets to the students just
to have them there, but they
were and they cheered so much
for our team that they came
back from loosing at first and
won the game.


Beauty is more

Although the fishermen find their way down to the locks on Istokpoga, the infrastructure could use
extra attention after the fish are caught and the fishermen are gone.


Istokpoga locks could be better


By JOHN PECK
Sebring High School
The locks on the south end of
the infamous Lake Istokpoga
on County Road 621 are a great
spot to catch some big fish
when the water is running out.
Many people from around
the community go and fill up
their coolers with a variety of
fish swimming amongst the
swirling waters. This is a great


resource to that end of town, so
I was thinking, why don't we
clean it up some?
If you have ever seen that
place after the flurry of people
have-gone back home, the scene
is tragically skewed with trash
everywhere, and clumps of
fishing line lying dangerously
in trees and on the ground.
I am not saying it should be
scrubbed down with bleach but


having someone pick u
trash won't hurt it any. A
think a good idea is to I
some picnic tables and a
room, not too much but
thing.

We'll see what happen
the fish are probably go.

open and when the loci
open go get yourself somr


High schools need a 'school store


By JENNA PONTIUS
Sebring High School
Have you ever had a teacher
ask you on Monday to get some
materials for Wednesday? For
people without cars, this could
be a very big inconvenience.
If you have parents that work
until 7 or.8 at night, they won't
want to come home and then
bring you all the way back out
to the store.
In middle school we used to
have something called a
"school store" where you could
get all the materials you need
for class from pencils to note-
books to paper. They sold
everything at a very reasonable
price, so for the students who
didn't have money to spend on
all the school supplies they
needed, they could still have
everything just like the rest of
the kids in class.


They even have a store like
this at many colleges that sell
things you might need that you
don't have time to go and get.
Having a store at school
would be very beneficial for
many reasons. First of all, if it is
the beginning of the year and
your teachers tell you every-
thing you need to get, then you
would have more of a chance to
get them on time if it's right
there.
If you have a class all year,
then by the time you have fold-
er-check your folder might not
be in the greatest shape like
when you got it, Most teachers
don't want messy old folders
that they have a harder time
holding together than even
grading it.
Wouldn't it be nice if you
could go buy a new folder that
you could transfer all your work


into right there on camp
save your teacher the trou


going through the class's fold-
ers and finding pieces of yours
everywhere?
This.wouldn't be a very prof-
itable event money-wise
because the money the school
gets from this would probably
be used to stock back up, but it
would be a good idea because
everyone would have what they
need without any excuses of not
being able to go to the store or
the supplies being too expen-
sive.

Sebring High School
h School Girls running around doing
some last minute touchups on their
makeup and hair, practicing
walking in their heels, and giv-
ing each other encouraging
words is what you will see
Ip the backstage right before a beauty
lso, I pageant.
put up In Highlands County one of
bath- the most important beauty pag-
some- eants for high school girls is the
Junior Miss Pageant.
This year the Junior Miss
ns but Pageant is going to be held on
ing to Feb. 15 at the Highlands
r ears County Fairgrounds. The girls
ks are participating in the pageant are
e fish. judged on how well their inter-
view is, on their sportswear and
on their appearance on stage in
their formal wear.
e Some might think that the
girls don't get along very well
is and since they are all competing for
ble of the same thing, but Ashley


Boyce, who placed first runner-
up last year, said, "We are all
really close and have a lot fun
together."
Last year's winner, Katlyn
Hammertree, had some advice
for the girls who are competing
this year.
"You should just have fun
and make friends, it's not all
about your looks. A lot of it has
to do with how you carry your-
self on stage, and you need to
have a good personality."
If you win Junior Miss it
doesn't just stop there, you
have to make at least 12 appear-
ances a year, you can compete
in other pageants, and of course
you have to be present at the
next year's Junior Miss pageant
to cheer on the new girls.
So if you're interested in
beauty pageants, or just want to
help support the girls who are
competing, you should come
out and cheer them on to help.

Batter up

It isn't quite like they had planned, but Sebring Dixie
Youth Baseball officials are happy with the outcome.
Last summer's hurricanes have hastened the replace-
ment of yet another set of batting cages these at Max
Long Recreational Complex.
County commissioners last week approved a request
to have the batting cages at the complex replaced. The
cages were destroyed by last season's hurricanes and
normal wear and tear.
When finished, the new cages will provide Sebring
and county youth with yet another place for batting prac-
tice. A year ago, county commissioners agreed to help
the town of Lake Placid replace batting cages at Lake
June Park.
There is no doubt that baseball is a favorite sport of
this county's youth and many of them use those cages for
recreation and sports training. In July, the Sebring Dixie
Youth Baseball Association has a state championship
that draws about 18 teams of 14-year-olds 13 players
each.
For many children, involvement in organized sports is
their only way of staying off the streets.
Although located inside the city limits, the batting
...... a aren't covered by the city's insurance, according to
.. iid parks advisory committee member and
Sebring city councilwoman Margie Rhoades.
RPAC recommended in January 'hat the county fund
one-third of the project's $60,000 cost. The other two
thirds will come from the Federal Emergency
Management Agency and in-kind services and cash from
the Dixie Youth Association.
The county and city will prepare an interlocal agree-
ment to maintain the batting cages as part of the Max
Long Recreation Complex.
Another sign of the city and county working well
together, understanding that they need to do what is pos-
sible to provide a safe place for the county's youth to go.


Readers' respoinses


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

There is nothing that can be
done as is.
But we have five elected
county commissioners who
should take steps to take away
DOT's controlling authority of
our county.
To me, these people are a
complete failure in not only
road control but many other
projects. Intelligence has far
exceeded common sense.
These people are servants of
the taxpayer.
Our sheriff and city police
are more than qualified to man-
ager qur roads. Our elected
commissioners know how to
correct the problem. Let's let
them know.
Russell Willsey
Sebring

First and foremost the speed
limit from U.S. 98 and U.S. 27
to the other side (north) of Avon
Park should be 45 mph or
lower, rigidly enforced.
Second, there should be no
trucks allowed in the allowed in
the inside (ieft) or the so-called
passing lane or where a passing
lane exists. Trucks should
remain in the right hand or mid-
dle lane.


Lee Roberts
Sebring

I am not clear on just what
the long range comprehensive
plan is in Highlands County. It
was known long before I came
here that U.S. 27 has a traffic
problem. A truck by-pass has
been discussed and dissected a
number of times in the past
eight years. The new by-pass
would reduce the traffic prob-
lem considerably.
Another solution would be
alternate streets east and' west
of U.S. 27 running the length of
the county from the north coun-
ty line to U.S. 98 and State
Road 66. State Road 635 has
been discussed also, but noth-
ing came of it. The county


attorney proposed a service
road from:'Sebring to. Lake
Placid, but nothing came of
that. County Road 317 and
State Road 17 to the east of
U.S. 27 is a route trucks could
use, but that would impact the
traffic in downtown Sebring.
Thus, a truck by-pass and at
least one through street east and
west of U.S. 27 would alleviate
the congestion. In addition,
strict enforcement of speeding
and lane changing regulations
would increase .safety. The lat-
est case of the driver from Fort
Lauderdale, who sped up the
highway and weaved in and out
of traffic before totaling anoth-
er car and hers, is enough evi-
dence to warrant such enforce-
ment, if not the five fatalities
already for. January.
Fortunately,. she did not kill
anyone.
The fines and penalties could
pay for this enforcement for at
least six months. Speed kills.
Recklessness does, too. Why
aren't the suggestions noted
above already in the five-year
comprehensive plan?

Should the city of Sebring
put more time and effort into
saving Harder Hall?


Yes, the city of Sebring
should do whatever needs to be
done to save Harder Hall.
When you drive along 27,
you don't need a sign to tell you
you're in Sebring. You've got
the big, beautiful, pink Harder
Hall to let you know. It's our
history. It sparks the imagina-
tion to visualize another era.
Not every old building
should be saved,m but there are
some that speak volumes. It's
inconceivable to think that New
York City almost tore down
Grand Central Station. Thank
goodness they didn't.
Harder Hall is one of those
special places worth saving.

Rights being

taken away

Editor:
Just wondering if everyone
who voted for G. Bush are still
happy about that, but they
thought he was going to get us
out of Iraq. Well, that's not
going to happen because they
haven't tried to figure out
where the insurgents are get-
ting all the bombs and ammo
they are using to fight us with.
The bad guy who took the
blame for 9/11 (bin Laden),
now why don't they go after
him and get this over this?
Now Bush wants to mess
with Social Security. I sure am
glad I'm over 55, because we
are all going to be in the hurts if
he gets away with this.
Our rights are slowly being
taken from us. First, seat belts
to saye lives. Second, prce,,qf
cigarettes so everyone who"
smokes can't afford themTihis
also to save lives, but who
stops all these bars that stay
open.until 1 or 2 a.m. so you
can drink yourself silly, get in a
car and drive and kill innocent
people and the law can't stop
them all.
So why quit smoking and
wearing seat belts to save lives,
because if Bush gets his way
with Social Security we'll all
be in the poor house or on wel-
fare, if he don't take that away.
All ex-presidents should give
up half their pay. All Congress
get their pay cut in half. They
are all too rich anyway and
overpaid.

Questions still

need answers
Editor:
President Bush will go to
war to save the peace around
the world, and at home he
wants to save Social Security.
The war in Iraq is not conclud-
ed, but he encourages people in
other countries to urge democ-
racy upon their rulers, promis-
ing to "stand by them."
Does that mean more war to
save the peace? I trust he will
not repeat President
Eisenhower's response to
Czechoslovakia in '58, or
President Bush I's to the Shiites
in '91. Our military is already
extended; recruitment has fall-
en off with the ",irtual draft" of
troops whose time of service
expired six, 12, 18 months ago,
but still serving.
At home, President Bush
pushes hard to "save Social
Security." Congress has already
borrowed from the trust fund
($10-$15 trillion IOUs).
Question: Who is going to
manage the new individual pri-
vate accounts? The same
accountants and financiers who
ripped off the economy for $7


trillion? ... the CEOs and exec-
utives who laid off millions of
workers to enhance their own
profits and bonuses, by out-
sourcing? ... those who got out
of the market "in time," but
prevented their employees
from doing same? ... who made
pensions, 401Ks and health
care benefits worthless? Can
the American people trust this
privileged group/ They will get
their money ($1-2 trillion) up
front, but the IPAs will have to.
wait 30-plus years, if the stock
market does not repeat 2001.
Social Security is a pension
fund, plus an insurance fund for
dependents of those who pay
into Social Security, are
injured, disabled or deceased,
serving retirees and dependents
(55 million).
Why is President Bush so
determined to give Wall Street
$1-2 trillion of the people's
money to manage these IPAs?
'We have an $8 trillioni'national
debt, thanks to Presidents
Reagan, Bush I and Bush II. At
one time the concept of debt
was an anathema to conserva-
tives. Maintaining and living
within a budget was a tenet of
faith. Yet, for 25 years, Big
Business has succeeded in get-
ting consumers enmeshed in
personal debt ($7 trillion).
It is quite acceptable to buy a
home with mortgage, the
biggest investment most fami-
lies will make. But today, just
about everything is paid for
with a credit card, with little
thought of the 5 percent to 25
percent interest. One current
scam is the "combine all debt
accounts into one" industry.
The hapless consumer is
sucked into even greater debt
by nefarious vultures through
"small print," while Congress
looks the other way.
There is nothing wrong with
people wanting IPAs, if they
pay to manage them. What is
wrong is one privileged group
profiting from such accounts.
Special interests have already
received $2 trillion in one form
or another in the last four years,
while ordinary people have had
to do with less. Example: That
a worker got a $500 tax rebate
while the very rich got a
$100,000 tax rebate is a sad
commentary, considering that
$50 was easily wiped out by
high gas prices.
Please, don't mess with
Social Security.

E-mail friends

are wonderful

Editor:
You have letters coming into
your paper to be printed. Some
praising our United States and
some cursing our United States
and other matters important to
that person.
The printed word use to be


'If you choose to work in TV news, you have to have thick skin. This

isn't 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show' anymore. It's more like

'Survivor'.'

ANGELA DAVIS, anchor, KSTP-TV, Minneapolis/St. Paul, 2004


the criteria for all of us to read,
and decide for ourself what we
want to believe.
But today something has
replaced the 'newspaper and
magazines for putting words
out into the world that you will
never see in any newspaper or
over any television news sta-
tion. That is the e-mail friends.
I sent to my e-mail friends
messages that I am a believer
of Jesus Christ as they have
sent me the message that they
also believe in the Lord Jesus
Christ and no one can interfere
with our messages.
I send on to 15 other people
and when they receive it they
send on to many other e-mail
friends and then those send on
to others, which when added up
can be in the millions and mil-
lions of e-mail friends.
It does not matter if the
whole world does not agree
with us, we e-mail friends gath-
ered in the -millions and mil-
lions are spreading the word of
Jesus Christ.
Amazing as it seems these
same e-mail friends sent mes-
sages of love of our nation and
of our flag, do not believe in
abortions and praise our troops
for fighting so other people can
have the freedoms we have in
the United States and want to
share those freedoms with the
whole world.
When adding up all these e-
mail friends, how can we be
defeated by any enemy.
The evening news may bring
nothing bit gloom regarding
our nation and portray to the
world those who oppose our
God, our country as being in
the majority. Politicians can
come over television and try to
make the rest of the world think
that the people in United States
believe the way the politicians
believe, who do not follow the
teaching of Christ, but we e-
mail friends know what we
believe and do not mind send-
ing it through the air waves day
after day.

MURPHY LAW

Lindsey N. Murphy


A small

sacrifice

With the season of Easter
quickly drawing upon us, I am
here to encourage you to take a
little action and give up some-
thing.
Ever since I was a small child,
beginning on Ash Wednesday,
our family would give up some-
thing that we hold dear. At
times, we would also try to work
on a character trait to better our
lives.
For a main example, my
mother has always given up
what she calls "her treat to her-
self," chocolate, while my broth-
er one year gave up his sweet
tooth for ice cream. I can still
remember the year that I decid-
ed to give up "arguing with my
brother and sister;" boy was that
ever hard at the age of 8.
Either way, each realized that
through their small sacrifices
that they made daily, they
remembered what this season
was truly meant for.
Now, I have been contemplat-
ing again and again what I would
be giving up for the next 40 days.
This year, I wanted to make it
something special, something
that would really make me think
each day.
At first I thought I would go
along with my mom and give up
sweets. But then I began to
think, "I really do not have a
sweet-tooth that gets me into
trouble." I jokingly said that I
would give up "fighting with my
siblings," but my parents said "It
must be something real this
time, Lindsey."
Sitting here, writing this
paper, I am sipping on a Coke.
And the famous light bulb came
over my head; I will give up all
caffeinated sodas.
I understand this might be a
bit of a challenge for me, being
that caffeine tends to get me
through those days that I have a
limited amount of sleep (thanks
to being a college student ...).
Not to mention, I have a special
treat to myself, the vanilla-cokes
from The Pit-Stop. However, in
all honesty, this is nothing com-
pared to what Christ did for all of
God's children.
So, as I have made my final
soda run at 11:59 p.m. on
Tuesday, I know that I will be
more focused into what this sea-
son of Lent truly means to the
world. I encourage ya'll to either
give up something in your life, or
try to improve yourself for the
next 40 days.

Many help Arc

Mardi Gras

Editor:
SIt is so refreshing to me to
live in a small town.
I come from South Florida
where most people do not even
know their neighbors much less
the local firefighters and law
enforcement. Here in
Highlands County it never
ceases to amaze me the things
that people will do if I simply
ask.
Last month the staff and
clients at Ridge Area Arc start-
ed to talk about Mardi Gras and
how much fun it would be to
have a party. Our clients made
traditional masks and the staff
began planning for food and
decorations.
Our excitement grew as the
Mardi Gras party day neared
and somebody said it would be
just great to also have a parade.
I was charged with getting
vehicles for our parade and
people willing to join in the
celebration. I thought that this
was going to be a difficult task,


but one call to Sheriff Susan
Benton and Deputy J.P. Fane
volunteered to ride his motor-
cycle in our parade. Highlands
Lake firefighters Mike Jolin
and Danielle Johns were just as
willing and eager to spend
some time with us. The final
and gracious act came when
Florida National Guard Sgt.
Michael Shirey and Private
First Class Steven Goff said
they would be happy to drive
Army vehicles down Baltimore
Road during their lunch hour
on a Friday.
Imagine that. We even had
people volunteering to toss
beads. A special thank you also
goes out to Johneen Shirey and
Cheryl Longabaugh for their
assistance walking in the cold
to toss beads.
What a great group of people
we live with in our small but
great Highlands County.
Thanks again everyone for a
wonderful Ridge Area Arc
Mardi Gras Parade.

Old problems require new solutions


As it turns out, the
only substantive
thing Democrats
were offering young
people in the last
election were Bruce
Springsteen and 'i
REM concerts.
Unfortunately, even
those offerings were
10 or 20 years out of POLI
date. NOTE
From my genera-
tion's perspective, LOWELL
they are doing more
of the same with
Social Security reform. The
Democratic leadership seems
content to offer only tired old
gimmicks, not innovative solu-
tions.
This may sound as familiar as
Springsteen's "Born in the
USA," but Kennedy, Kerry and
crew want to raise taxes in order
to cover for government's poor
planning.
You might recognize this plan
of attack. It's also their solution
for balancing the budget,
reforming Medicare, improving
education, paying for our war on
terror, and the list goes on.
They've employed it since the
New Deal, when it worked.
They exploited it during the
Great Society, when it proved
crippling. And they've defended
it through the Reagan revolution
and beyond, even though it has
proved faulty.
True, there is wisdom in danc-
ing with the girl who brung ya.
However, the Democrats have
worn out this gal's dancing
shoes. It's time for government
to embrace new ideas for new
reforms, because modern society
presents very new challenges.
This should not be a polariz-


I

B


ing issue, but it seems
those opposed to the
President's Retire-
ment Savings Account
plan are determined to
set old against young,
and party against party.
All polling reveals
the same trend. The
younger you are, the
ICAL more likely you are to
OOHK favor having the option
to invest part of your
BAKER payroll taxes. Folks
already' on Social
Security have been
lead to believe that this plan cuts
their current benefits, so the
strong majority is understand-
ably opposed. Middle aged
Americans are in the middle of
the opinion spectrum.
I'll say bluntly what the pres-
ident said tactfully in the State of
the Union, and I mean this with
all due respect to those already
receiving benefits.
This isn't about you. You
have dutifully paid your money
into the system, and you're not
in danger of losing those bene-
fits. That's a simple fact.
President Bush is also on the
cusp of retirement, although not
as near to it as some of his oppo-
nents hoped. He knows this
reform isn't about him, either.
It's about his daughters' genera-
tion, who will also dutifully pay
into the system but will see not a
penny of it unless dynamic
change is enacted.
I've recently become a con-
tributor to Social Security, and
to be honest I'm not entirely sure
I believe it's a good deal.
As I understand it, the govern-
ment will take a healthy chunk
of my salary before I ever touch
it. Years later, the government


will give back that money if I
live long enough to qualify. But
the rate of return, as exposed by
the Heritage Foundation, is near-
ly always poor. It's hard to feel
good about sending a dollar to
Washington today, and getting
less than that dollar's potential
yield back years down the road.
It feels downright frightening
to send many dollars over a life-
time, and never see a penny of it
when I really need it.
While Social Security's inef-
ficiency is disconcerting, I agree
with the rationale behind Social
Security. FDR's vision was as
compassionate as it was neces-
sary to meet the needs of a
changing society.
Compassion and necessity
should again breed invention.
Present times require another
revolution in the provision of
social services.
We must take advantage of
the marvel of our American
economy in order to secure our
financial future. This has been
called a "risky scheme."
Certainly the market has its
ups and downs, but the history
of our American economy
shows a steady upward trend -
and one that will outperform the
conservative Treasury bonds
that fuel the Social Security trust
fund.
I've heard stories about when
candy bars cost a nickel and a
gallon of gas was a quarter. By
the time I retire, the memory of
a Dow that stood around 10,000
will be equally distant.
All my generation asks is that
we have a fighting chance. All
we ask is that we can use a little
bit of our own money to grow
our own opportunity. Govern-
ment should encourage us to


own a stake in our future. It
should trust us to spend our
money better than it can.
We also hope that if we so
choose, we can leave our sav-
ings account to our own chil-
dren. After all, that is what this
initiative is all about. It's about
providing for the next genera-
tion. Embrace this reform for us
today, and I promise we'll
bestow such generosity upon our
own kids. That's the American
way.
We don't mind the govern-
ment closely monitoring how we
invest that money in fact, we
welcome it. 1 have no desire to
throw my retirement savings at
the next Enron.
I have every desire to place
them in conservative investment
funds that are guaranteed win-
ners, and I trust my government
to help me do exactly that. I
hope my government can trust
me as much as I do it.
Raising payroll taxes isn't the
answer. We need more workers
paying into the system, not less.
Why discourage businesses
from hiring?
If we concede that we are
hamstrung by a has-been tech-
nique like raising taxes, we'll be
sure to fall victim to it again the
next time Social Security is
threatened.
If this reform is indeed a risk,
it's a risk dependent upon the
ability of the American people to
pursue a better future for our-
selves. That's as safe a wager as
our government can make.

Celebrating
As part of my
heritage, I get to
participate and cel-
ebrate two her-
itages, which is a
gift from my par-
ents. My mother
was born in
Jamaica and my
dad was born in
Canton, China, YOU'
which makes me I
bi-racial. ID
In New York, at
this time of the
Au
year, my grandma, A
Fo Lai, would be
making preparations to cele-
brate Chinese New Year. This
Chinese lunar year, which
begins today, is the "Year of
the Rooster."
The Chinese calendar
names each of the 12 years
after an animal. Grandma Fo
Lai said the reason this hap-
pened was because when
Buddha was leaving earth he
called all the animals to say
goodbye and only 12 came to
visit. So, Buddha named the
years after each animal in the
order they came.
Last year was the year of
the monkey.
Grandma Fo Lai would
travel by train to China Town
to pick up fresh vegetables,
fruits, spices, cakes, cookies
and an assortment of Chinese
foods. I enjoy the dim sum,
steamed shrimp dumplings,
tofu, roast duck in her special
sauce and those special
deserts. There is also this spe-
cial drink, which is a blend of
ice tea, milk, and tapioca
balls. We usually drink it with
a straw. It is sooo good.
On Chinese New Year there
is lots of excitement in China


a heritage
Town. Tissue
lanterns are used to
decorate the streets,
and Chinese char-
acters, dressed as
V, dragons, dance
along Canal Street
3 to music played by
Chinese marching
bands. Floats, acro-
THFUL bats and fire crack-
CIC ers pop all around

For dinner
Grandma Fo Lai set
the dining table
with lots of deli-


cious food. It make my mouth
water just thinking about her
delicious cooking.
All the family members
meet at her house for this spe-
cial feast. This includes Uncle
Frank and his wife Mary, their
children who are my cousins,
Frank, Gregory and Nicholas.
My uncles Peter and Billy, my
dad, mom, myself and some
family friends.
The best part of the whole
event is this all the unmar-
ried family members each
receive a red Chinese enve-
lope Hongg boa's) with
money. I had fun counting my
loot.
Guess what? Although I1
now live in Florida, Grandma
Fo Lai, my uncles and my
dad, still send me my red
envelope. Isn't that cool?

Sebring surges past Devils


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING For a while, it
looked like another Sebring-
Avon Park game would be,
well, another Sebring-Avon
Park game, coming down to the
wire with six ties and seven
lead changes in the first three
quarters.
But the difference in the
fourth quarter was night and
day, with free throw shooting
making a big difference as the
17th-ranked Blue Streaks took
the final meeting of the season
62-55 Tuesday evening.
"We hit some big free-
throws," Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris said. "Some
ones that bailed us out there but
we've been in a couple close
games and had to come from
behind so to come back tonight
and win this one says a lot


about our team. We know not to
panic even when we're down
two points with two minutes
left. That shows us that we're
learning. We are in situations

where we know
how to win and it
helps to be in
those situations
before."
Sebring shot
61 percent from
the line overall
and their final 11
points came off
foul shots. Six
came from senior
Weston Brooks


who dropped a team-high 14
points and Kevin Dixon was
close behind with 12 points and
seven rebounds.
But Avon Park jumped to a
14-9 lead early after hitting four
3-pointers in a row. Luis


Lebron hit two 3-pointers to go
up 8-4 and center Pat Menzies
followed with another trey.
Lebron then sank his third ball
from the land of plenty to make
it a five-point margin. Devaris
Strange hit another from behind
the arc to start the second quar-
ter.
Sebring rallied, however,
with two points from Dixon and
'Greg Perry and another four
from sophomore Kyle Hoffner
to make it 19-19. A Weston
Brooks alley-oop layup then
gave the Streaks the lead they
would hold for the rest of the
half.
'Joe Aaron hit two ensuing
free throws and Blake Sanders
nailed a 3-pointer from the cor-
ner to go into halftime with a
30-23 advantage.

Home isn't




so sweet for




Panthers


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK On the
Lady Panthers' big day, it just
wasn't their day.
A nightmare seventh inning
against Santa Fe turned a 2-1
lead into a 4-2 loss for South
Florida Community College
in the first-ever game at
Panther Field, and darkness
halted a rally in the second
game of the doubleheader that
left the Lady Panthers with a
5-4 defeat.
"It's tough when you give
two ballgames away," South
Florida head coach Carlos
Falla said. "We have to be
better at scoring more runs,
and then holding off people,
and then not throwing balls
around: And that's going to
come with us maturing as a
team."
After Santa .Fe (5-2) had
scored three runs in the top of
the nightcap's sixth inning,
South Florida (2-5) answered
with a three-run inning of its
own. Yet the umpires, Falla
and Santa Fe head coach
Chris Aher then came to the
mutual-decision that without
stadium lights, another inning
could not be played.
"By the time we would
have gotten up (to bat), it
probably would have been too
dark," Falla said. "This is a
non-conference game. I hate
to lose it, but as far as values
of games go, it's not a high-
value game right now. It's just
more of a learning experi-
ence."
Indeed, the Panthers, with
only two sophomores on the
roster, have plenty of learning

"We have one inning where
we have a function problem. I
guess, for lack of a better
term," Falla said. "We have
that one bad inning and have
to work through that. That's
the difference between an
average team, a good team
and a great team."
The first "function prob-
lem" came in the top of the
seventh in the opener.

Basketball


Double dose of perfection at APMS


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The Avon Park
Middle School Red Devils were equal-
opportunity bullies this basketball season.
Boys or girls, it didn't matter. When you
faced the Devils, you were in trouble.
Using teamwork, hard work and plain
old athletic ability, the Devils set a new
standard for Heartland middle school
sports, with both teams going 11-0 and
making APMS the first school ever to
have both its boys and girls teams finish
undefeated.
Coming on the heels of an undefeated
season by the football team, the success of
the basketball program means the future


looks pretty bright for the high school ath-
letic programs.
"At the beginning of the season, we
challenged both teams because we felt
both the boys and girls had the opportuni-
ty to go undefeated," said Alvin Conner,
who, along with Lee Elder coached both
teams with assistance from Rodney Cole.
"They're real coachable, that's one of
the most important things. We enjoyed
coaching them. We had most of them as
seventh graders, and we saw them mature
from last year to this year. We saw them
grow up. That was real pleasing to see,
and then to be successful as well.
"Coach Elder, coach Cole and I worked
hard and the kids worked even harder."


That hard work paid off in a big way.
The boys never even came close to losing,
averaging 50 points per game to their
opponents' 17.8, while the girls won their
games by an average score of 31.2 to 15.
Only once in the 22 games the teams
played was there a real, scare, and that
came when the girls played Sebring the
first time and escaped with a 22-19 win.
Other than that game, the closest any team
came to the Lady Devils was Sebring the
second time with an II-point margin.
"Sebring was quite a challenge for us
because they beat us last year in two close
games," Elder said.

Streaks


steal win


in district
By ALEX ACKEMANN
Special to the News-Sun
LEHIGH ACRES -
Sebring failed to take advan-
tage of Lehigh's charity on
Tuesday night, resorting to
theft instead to come away with
a win in its District 14-4A girls
basketball tournament quarter-
final game.
The Blue Streaks missed 16
of 31 free throws,:but used a
full-court pressure defense to
come up with an abundance of
steals and post a 46-34 victory.
The win earned Sebring a spot
in Thursday's semifinal round,
where they'll face No. 1-seed
Palmetto Ridge at 6 p.m.
"We didn't shoot that well
from the free-throw line, and
that's gonna come back and
haunt you on some nights,"
Sebring coach Robert Sampson
said. "Tonight it didn't, but
eventually it'will."
Misfires from the charity
stripe failed to hurt the Steaks
(16-8) because
their stifling Sebring
defense was 4
inflicting plenty
of damage Lehigh
against the 34
Lightning off- 34I
ense. Up Next
Lehigh (5-17) Semifinal vs.
suffered through Palmetto Ridge
a rash of on Thursday
turnovers, and
rarely had an opportunity to run
their usual offensive sets.
Sebring won by a single point
the last time the two teams
faced off on Jan. 14. This time,
the Streaks defense made their
victory look easy.
"We came out and we
pressed tonight we've never
done that before against them,"
Sampson said. "I think it forced
a few turnovers. We didn't cap-
italize on it in the beginning of
the game, but then we finally
got some shots off of it. It was
the biggest difference."
Struggling to score early, the
Streaks dropped into an 8-4
deficit after the first quarter.
Senior forward Nicole
Dickerson provided a spark,
scoring all nine of her points in
the second quarter. Combined
with six points from junior
guard Shakinah Crumity and
two each from sophomore
Kristen Kilmer and sophomore
Jalessa Richardson, the scoring
surge pushed Sebring to a 23-
16 halftime lead.
"We came out to win we
had our focus," said Crumity,
who finished with a game-high
16 points. "We're trying to go
all the way."
After a plodding .third quar-
ter in which it increased its lead
by a single point, Sebring took

APMS
Continued from 1B
"We were kind of happy to
reverse the trend this year. We
look forward to playing them
because it's always good com-
petition."
The boys never even had to
sweat one out, as a 19-point win
over Hill-Gustat was the closest
game of their season. In fact,
the best competition the boys
got was when they played each
other in practice.
"We had some pretty intense
practice games," Elder said.
"That's the best thing I cao say
about this group is that they
compete and practice harder
than any group of kids I've
been around in 13 years.
"They just hate to lose. It
doesn't matter if it's a practice,
a game or whatever. They just
go at it."
Both groups bought into the
team concept, Elder said, and
that attitude, along with a good
work ethic both on the court
and in the classroom was what
led to the unprecedented suc-
cess.
"We had four returning
starters on the boys and four
returning starters on the girls,
so we knew coming into this
year that we would be pretty
successful," Elder said.
"It was a magical season all
around because this was the
first year that we didn't lose
anybody to grades on both the
boys and the girls and then we
finished undefeated on top of
that with both teams."
Of course, all-around athletic
ability has a lot to do with win-
ning, too, and the Devils had
plenty of that on both teams.
"This is a very unusual group
of athletes where we have size,
speed and shooters," Conner
said.. "We did not have ,any
weaknesses on our teams.
"If they stay together and
continue to work hard and
improve at the next level, they
will have a shot of going to a
place I left before retiring from
the varsity job.
"It's a long way down the
line, but they have the potential
to do that."
That place Conner was talk-

ing about is the Lakeland
Center, home of the high school
state championships, which is
where Conner hopes this group
.of Devils will end up in three or
four years with a shot at anoth-
er double dose of history.


"This is a very, very special
group of young men and young
ladies and they're going to be
successful when they leave here
and go on to high school,"
Conner said.
"We're just glad we had a


part to play in it. With me being
a former varsity basketball
coach, it was just really good
for me to have a part in the
development of the players that
will go on up to the high school
and be successful."

If Blake Germaine
loses at the state
wrestling tourna-
ment, it won't be
from lack of effort or
desire.
Like his older
cousin, Dustin
Germaine, Blake fin-
ished second at state
last year, but he
hopes to break the
curse and take first
place and finish what
his cousin started.
Dustin, a 1998


KRISTEN
KILMER

SEBRING HIGH


graduate and two-time state
medalist, was undefeated head-
ing into the state semifinal and
drew the top-seeded wrestler,
then-unbeaten Ryan Thorson.
Dustin won in dramatic
fashion in overtime and that
should have been the champi-
onship. Unfortunately, Dustin
lost a close decision in the
final against someone he'd
beaten before.
Now it's up to Blake, who
has a record of 32-1, holds the
single-season school record for
takedowns (121) and reversals
(38), and is the No. 1-ranked
Class IA wrestler in the state
in his weight class heading
into the District 9-1A meet at
McKeel Academy in Lakeland
on Friday, the first step on
what Blake hopes is the road
to the state championship.
"He is the favorite to win
(state)," said head coach Dave
Cunningham.
Former wrestling coach
Wayne Stapleford agreed, say-
ing Blake "has a legitimate
shot at winning."
Blake believes that practic-
ing hard every day, running
and just staying in shape are
what makes him such a good
wrestler and will hopefully win
him a state title.
Blake has targeted mat
wrestling as a weakness that


needs improvement.
"I did stink at that
last year, but I've
been working all
summer long," he
said. "Before, I felt I
could wrestle on my
feet and not on the
mat. Now I can
wrestle on the mat,
too."
Blake took first
place in his weight
class at the Spiegel
Invitational Jan. 8.
He is dedicated to


this sport. He wrestles with
heart and is determined.
Nothing that he can control
will stop him from reaching
his goals. Blake knows what
he wants and his ready smile
quickly disappears when he
hits the mat.
"Just to be called a state
champion and get my picture
on the wall (in the gym)," are
what he said he uses for moti-
vation this year. "Just thinking
about last year, losing. I don't
want everybody to see me get
beat."
Blake is also an excellent
team leader, according to his
peers and coaches.
"He is the best wrestler and
everybody looks up to him,"
said Shaanan Spiegel.
"He is their captain,"
Stapleford, a Hall of Fame
wrestling coach, added. "He is
the best wrestler on the team
and his teammates look up to
him to win. All intact, this
means he is the leader."
Blake is only 17, but he
knows that when he is done
with college he wants to
become a wrestling coach. We
can only hope that he takes his
wrestling skills to the next
level.

Kristen Kilmer is a student at
Sebring High School.

Consecutive errors had put the
No. 7 and No. 9 batters for
Santa Fe on base, and they
scored when Emily
Montgomery followed up on
her third-inning home run to
left-center field with a triple to
straightaway center.
"I was really focused,"
Montgomery said. "I was, like,
we have to win this ballgame."
Montgomery, who recorded
the first-ever Panther Field out
when she was retired in the'first
inning, went 4-for-6 with four
RBIs the rest of the day.
"She was hot," Ahem said.
"She can do it all."
The fourth perfect inning of
relief by Rachael Foster (1-0)
then sealed the game for Santa
Fe in the bottom of the seventh.
"She's got good poise and
good control. She's got a good
'riseball," Ahern said of Foster.
"She just came back off of sur-
gery on her elbow, so we're try-
ing to work her in innings
where she can do us a lot of
good and get some good time
on the mound for herself."
Her performance obscured
that of South Florida starter
Christina Morrow (1-2), who
allowed just one earned run
with no walks while going the


distance in the opener.
"The kid is outstanding.
Everytime I put the ball in her
hands, she's outstanding," Falla
said. "Today, you all didn't see
the best Christina. She didn't
have her best stuff. Her best
stuff, she shuts them down. She
shut everybody down she threw
against this weekend."
Morrow, nor game two

biggest growing-up process that
we have to do, is learn to make
on-field adjustments."
The Panthers must learn to
adapt to injury, as well. Already

control for good in the fourth. Crumity scored six
in the period and sophomore Nikela Sullivan
added five, including a back-breaking 3-pointer
that pushed the lead to 10 points with less than
six minutes left.
"It feels great," Dickerson said of the win. "I
didn't want my season to end tonight."
Sampson said his team will need to do better in
all facets of the game on Thursday if it hopes to
upset the Bears (18-6) and sophomore point
guard Jamie Navarro, who averages 26.2 points
per game. Sebring lost twice to Palmetto Ridge
during the season by a combined score of 135-62.
"They're beatable. They're not perfect," he
said. "We'll come in here and give it our best
shot."

AVON PARK Walker Memorial broke

School.


hand, and shortstop Rachel
Holloway in the second game
with a knee injury.
"We've got everybody hurt,"
Falla said.
Still, the most pressing mal-
adies may be mental and not
physical.
"In high school, they can get
by doing stuff, and in college,
they feel that they can still do it,
and get by, and they can't,"
Falla said.
"You're not going to win
making four errors. You're just
not."
Yet like the team, the season
is very young.
"We played a very good team
close twice. We came back in
the last inning. If it hadn't had
been for darkness, who knows,
we might have had a chance,"
Falla said. "We'll get by, and
we'll get better as time goes
on."
Several dignitaries threw out
ceremonial first pitches in
recognition of their support of
the program: Joyce Adams,
Don Appelquist, Bob Bullard,
Carl Cool, Andrew Jackson,
Guy Maxcy, Leana Revell, Bill
Shaffer, C.B. Shirey, John
Shoop, Norman Stephens,

Alan Jay Wildstein and Mike

Christian, which beat Sonrise Christian 56-4 on
Tuesday, will face Evangel Christian in the early
game at 5:30. Evangel beat Vanguard 91-8 in
Tuesday's other quarterfinal.
Senior Hanilyn Teope led Walker with 15
points, while freshman teammate Kristen Castillo
added II points, including a trio of 3-pointers.
Morgan Aley led the Crimson Hawks with 10
points.
"The turning point was when we picked up our
defensive pressure in the third quarter," Walker
coach William Farmer said. "We got some easy
baskets and what was a close game became a nice
lead for us. I would be remiss if I didn't mention
Kristen. We set up a play for her at the end of the
third quarter and she hit a 3-pointer to give us a
10-point lead."
Walker has lost twice to All-Saints this season.
The Saints have suffered only one loss in'the dis-
trict.
"We have to take better care of the ball against
All-Saints," Farmer said. "We have to play better
defense on (Lindsey) McClelland. She scored 57
points in our two games."

Continued from 1B
That's when Avon Park's
halftime snacks kicked in and
the Devils went on a 17-8 run
in the third period. Bo.
Comadore scored four of his
team-high 15 points to start the
quarter, leading his squad for
the second game in a row.
Another four by Comadore
made it 38-36 and a Gerrard
Coleman layup tied the game
before a Greg Perry putback
closed the quarter out with the
Streaks ahead 42-40.
Brooks scored 10 points in
the final frame, part of a 20-15
Sebring run. The Streaks' only
three field goals of the period
came in the first two minutes.
"We want to take some
momentum going into dis-
tricts,". Harris said. "The
biggest thing is to get prepared
for the districts and win a state
playoff championship. That's
what we've been doing and we
wanted to come in a win to get
some momentum."

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.

of strong odor.

the time of purchase.

* Shrimp may be.frozen up to one month, but never
refreeze previously frozen uncooked shrimp.

* Upon your request, the Publix Seafood
