Emergency Medical Services Supervisor Ray Culpepper (from left), Sebring Firefighter Bobby Border and
EMS Paramedic Jay Perez stabilize Reginald Fifield, of Avon Park, Wednesday morning after his boat
sunk in Lake Jackson near Don Jose Mexican Restaurant in Sebring.



Avon Park man survives


night in
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING When Dana
Anglin and his buddy Joe
Kirkman put in their borrowed
boat at Veterans Beach
Wednesday they were in search
of fish. Instead, they got an
adventure that may well have
sI '., an Avon.Park man's. life.
"We didn't know where to go,
so we were just riding, around
looking for a place to fish," he
said. "It was the first time we
had been fishing since we came
to Highlands County."
But when they stopped to
watch some ducks diving in the
water and the two men stopped
the outboard motor, in the
silence of the mid-morning they
heard a cry for help.
Anglin said they looked
around and saw 47-year-old
Reginald Fifield hanging on to a
small tip of the bow of a boat,
bobbing just above the water.
Fifield told officers he had gone
fishing the night before and
sometime during the early
morning hours it began to take


Lake Jackson


on water.
"He said he'd been in the
water since 2:00 in the morn-
ing," Anglin said. "He said he
was numb."
Anglin and Kirkman had been
unable to pull Fifield aboard
their craft but were able to get
him some immediate assistance.
"We got a life jacket on h..11
and a couple of cushions under
him," Anglin said.
The Kentucky man did not
have a cellular telephone, so he
told Fifield to hang on while he
went for help. He and Kirkman
then made their way across Lake
Jackson toward the Don Jose
Mexican Restaurant.
"We were on our way over
there to call 911 but on the way
we stopped another boat to see if
they had cell phone. They went
over there and got him out,"
Anglin said.
"We always hear about 'they
caught them yesterday or last
week' so we decided to try it,"
he said.
Fifield said he .and Kirkman
fished the rest of the day, but


Fifield was their biggest catch.
"We didn't get a bite the rest
of the day," he said. "Actually,
we would like to just catch a fish
and know that there actually are
some around here."
Anglin said Fifield didn't
speak much but did manage to
say he had yelled at other
watersr s but. they either didn't
hear- ?r passed by him.
Fifield reportedly was actual-
ly pulled into a boat by a man
identified as Norman Straunch,
however, attempts to contact
him were unsuccessful
In a brief interview with
Sebring police, Fifield told offi-
cers he had been out fishing
when the craft simply began to
take on water. Apparently, the
boat has not been recovered and
may well have gone to the bot-
tom of the lake.
Thursday afternoon Fifield
remained in Highlands Regional
Medical Center in good condi-
tion.

SEBRING For better than
two decades the Circle in
downtown Sebring has been the
hub of activities for the Roaring
'20s celebration and this
Saturday will be no exception.
Again this year, the
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association will
back up the event with its
monthly Second Saturday Nite
Cruise and a new political
group plans to have a Lincoln
Day Rally from 10 a.m. until 2
p.m. Saturday at the former
George W. Bush call center at
155 W. Center St.
Originally held to mark her-
itage week, the Roaring '20s
was moved to February to take
advantage of drier weather and
the yearly influx of winter resi-
dents and tourists.
Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency
Executive Director Pete Pollard
said this year looks to be a
bumper crop of vendors.


"We were up to 130 booths
the last time I looked," he said.
Even as the staff was mark-
ing off the street Thursday,
more requests for participation
were arriving at the CRA
offices.
Although the bulk of vendors
will be from different parts of
Florida, there were participants
coming from Georgia, Virginia,
Ohio and even from as far away
as Iowa.
Pollard stressed that all the
upscale arts and crafts being
sold at the festival are products
of the people who sell them.
"We don't allow resale
items," he said.
Generally, the vendors
around the Circle are familiar
faces. Many reportedly sign up
for their same spaces for the
next year while at the current
year's show.
As per usual, the food court
will be set up on Mango Street.
Music will be provided dur-
ing the morning hours by the

SEBRING Bill Crotty,
a former Highlands County
sheriff's deputy, left hospital
care Thursday night recover-
ing from a gunshot wound.
He and two other Lake
County sheriff's deputies
got shot while responding to
a domestic violence call
Tuesday in Paisley. Jason
Lee Wheeler, 29, allegedly
shot Crotty, Deputy Tom
McKane'and Deputy Wayne
Koester, who died from a
gunshot wound.
Law enforcement cap-
tured Wheeler after a day-
long manhunt in the Ocala
National Forest. He was
wounded in a gun battle with
officers and is in critical
condition at Orlando
Regional Medical Center,
according to Sgt. Christie
Mysinger, spokesperson for
the Lake County Sheriff's
Office.
Koester, 33, is survived
by a wife and two children.
He had been with the sher-
iff's office since last May,
served in the Florida
National Guard as a special-
ist stationed with DeLand-
based Battery B, 1st
Battalion, 265th Air Defense
Artillery, and had assisted in
last year's hurricane after-
math.
McKane was not serious-
ly wounded and was
released Wednesday. Crotty
.was to get out of the hospital
Thursday.
"He is doing very well,"
Mysinger said. "He is in
good spirits."
Crotty, 39, served with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office fromOct. 5, 1994, to
June 20, 2001, as a deputy
sheriff, both on patrol and as
a school resource officer-at
Sebring High School.
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton drove up to
visit him Wednesday night.
"He was very thankful he
was alive and surrounded by
his family," she said. In light


of the violent shoot-out and&
the loss of Koester, Benton
said communities need to be
"very prayerful not only for
soldiers, but for the alu'i.,
enforcement officers who ,g
out there every day."
Crotty's wife was among'
a team of nurses who treated
him. His brother is Orange
County Mayor Richard
Crotty. McKane's wife is a
dispatcher with the sheriff's:
office who helped direct
authorities to the scene,
The call
The incident began at 4
a.m. Wednesday when tlich
three deputies arrived it
Wheeler's home on a
domestic disturbance repo'ir
The dispute li.ipp'ned
Tuesday night. Wheeler's
girlfriend waited until he Fell
asleep, left the house and
called 911 at 8:15 a.m.
Wednesday.
The girlfriend reported
"her old man had lost it" and
said "if cops pull into that
driveway, there's going to be
a gun battle."
When the deputies began
securing the home as a crime
scene, Wheeler came from
out of the woods and fired 4
shotgun at Koester, hituin.g
him in the head. A fire light
ensued. McKane and Crotty'
were wounded before
Wheeler escaped, Mysingef
said.
The hunt
About 500 deputies, offi-
cers and K-9 units from 28
different law enforcement
agencies in helicopters,
ATVs, armored personnel
carriers and airboats -
searched the swamps and
hills of the Ocala National
Forest. They locked down
two nearby elementary
schools and blocked off area
roads during the search.
Mysinger said K-9 unit
led officers to Wheeler;
After another gun fight wittj
officers, he was captured at
about 5 p.m. in woods siN

Residents concerned


over Sebring rezoning


By PHIL ATTiNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Residents on
Summit Drive want to be sure
they won't get over-developed.
An application to rezone land
on Ben Eastman Road, north of
Summit Drive, from low-densi-
ty to high-density residential
has had some nearby residents
concerned. It would build a
gated community on 45 acres,
with 110-foot-deep lots either
60, 95, or 140 feet wide. Water
and sewer would come from the
city, at about 57,000 gallons per
day.
After Tuesday's zoning
board meeting, concerned citi-
zens met with the developer
and engineer on the project to
see if their concerns might be
addressed by altering the site
plan.
Density
George Loyacano on Summit
Drive said high-density zoning
could allow rental units border-
ing his property. While the ten-
ants may be nice people, they
wouldn't necessarily have an
investment in the property.
The application suggests the
developer could put in two to
seven units per acre. With as
many as 250 units per acre, and
a possible 2.3 persons (aver-
aged) per unit, the development
could add another 575 people to
the area.
Traffic
An increased number of peo-
ple could impact nearby roads
'- Lakeview Drive, 'Ben
Eastman Road, Florida Drive
and the Sebring Parkway -
with more traffic. At the inter-
section of the Parkway and Ben


Eastman Road, there is no traf-
fic signal; only a two-way stop.
A traffic study is required
before the land can be devel-
oped. The application already
says that the impact could be as
many at 2,550 vehicle trips per
day.
There is also the possibility
that a fire entrance might be
requested on Summit Drive,
though the main entrance is
designated for Ben Eastman
Road at this time. Loyacano
and neighbor Bill Shelton said a
fire entrance on that road could
be used as a construction
entrance. Heavy trucks could
damage the pavement.
Drainage
Shelton believes the site
won't have enough retention
area. The corner of Ben
Eastman Road and Summit
Drive collects water, he said.
Putting more pavement on what
is now grove land could send
more water into his and other
neighbor's yards.
The property, according to
the application, slopes about
20-25 feet, from east to west,
but somewhat southwest,
toward the intersection. The
application states a drainage
study is required.
What's next
The Sebring City Council
could approve or deny rezoning
with or without a positive rec-
ommendation from the city
zoning board. The next meeting
for the city zoning board is
Tuesday, March 8. By then,
Loyacano hopes that meetings
with the developer and the
engiAeer will have ironed out
concerns.

SEBRING Many people
have heard about the Florida
Boys local barbecue team, but
this year it is the Woodhouse
Grill that is smoking the com-
petition on the Florida
Barbecue Association circuit.
"We just won the grand
champion in Wauchula last
weekend," team member
William Moore said.
The trio of local cookers
scored a first in pork, a first in
brisket and a third in ribs to top
33 other teams at the "Grillin'
& Chillin' on Main" event and
cement their first place in the
FBA rankings.
In fact, they have won three
of the last six contests in which
they have' competed:
SWoddhouse Grill'founder Mike
Leonardo still is contemplating
their new found success.
"It's so hard to do, even the
top teams may win five out of
30 in a year's time," he said.
Probably the team's most sat-
isfying win to date was their
success at the Central Fldrida
Barbecue Fest at Firemen's
Field this past January.
"We weren't expecting to
win the whole thing but we
were sure gunnin' for it," he
said.
It was part of a friendly.rival-
ry between them and the
Florida Boys. Leonardo said it
actually was Florida Boy mem-
ber and former organizer of the
local barbecue fest Jady Hill
that actually convinced him to
go into competition cooking.
Leonardo since 'has teamed
lip with former school chum
William .Moore and Jeff

RSVP looking for

The Retired Senior Volunteer
Program, which is sponsored by
Nu-Hope of Highlands County,
is looking for more volunteers in
Avon Park.
Mentor/tutors are needed for
schools. Aides in senior daycare,
senior arts and crafts, and meal
delivery are in great demand.
Persons who can help in the
library and with visitor informa-
tion are also wanted.

Heckard to form the team
known as Woodhouse Grill.
In addition to the recent
wins, capturing the Governor's
Cup at the Kansas City
Barbecue Society was yet
another big thrill for the trio.
"There were more than 50
teams from all over the country
- from as far away as like,
North Dakota," he said.
When the smoke cleared,
they had taken honors for best
brisket, ranked fifth in pork and
finished third overall.
That brought their point total
high enough to make
Woodhouse Grill the top team
from the Sunshine State in the
competition. That in turn was
good enough to win the
Governor's Cup.
Leonardo said that cooking
in the KCBS was not signifi-
cantly different from the FBA.
It's the level of competition.
. "The KCBS has been around
a whole lot longer than the
FBA, so there are 400 or more
teams that have been cooking
for like 20 years or better," he
said.
Leonardo .started the
Woodhouse Grill about three
years ago as a commercial ven-
ture. He started by purchasing
the trailer.


"We did the races and we did
Bike Week and other things,"
he said.
Overall, Leonardo said con-
sistency is his goal.
"We're just going to try and
keep, doing the same things we
have been doing until it stops
working for us," he said.
"We've got the hot seat now."
Leonardo attributed the suc-
cess of the team more to the
barbecue process than to any
kind of secret ingredient.
"Learning your grill is the
main thing," he said. "Know
where your hot spots and cold
spots are."
One ingredient that might be
running in short supply for the
team is their supply of wood.
Their lumber of choigris pignut:
hickory, but Leonard, said that
is running-in short supply.
"I think the hurricanes
knocked down about half the
hickory trees in the county," he
said. "I think we have every
tree service in the county look-
ing for them for us."
But despite their spate of suc-
cess, the team won't rest on
their laurels. They are set to
compete next weekend in
Winter Haven and will be cook-
ing again the week after that in
Okeechobee.

were airlifted to trauma centers
from a wreck at the intersection
of U.S. 27 and Lake Josephine

location are unknown.
At 1:27 p.m. Thursday,
Hedges tried to cross from Lake

Chevrolet Astro Van and was
hit broadside by a maroon
Mercury Sable. She spun and
rolled over, landing on the dri-

Ward, in the Sable, spun

broke up a staff meeting when
they heard the tires screeching

"I heard the squeal," Fillie
said, "then the van started flip-
ping."
The van rolled over three or
four times, tossing a German
shepherd-chow mixed-breed
dog from the back doors. Fillie
and Keckler ran out, collected
the dog and immediately ran it

backdrop of balloons for the

people want those," Hirsch
'said.

SEBRING While
Highlands County Supervisor
of Elections Joe Campbell
awaits a reply from the Florida
Division of Elections on a num-
ber of issues surrounding the
activities of the Highlands
County Canvassing Board dur-
ing last
November'.s -
general elec-
tion, questions
now have been
raised about at
least one mem-
ber's qualifica-
tions to have BULLARD
served on that
panel.
According to state statute,
the county canvassing board
must be composed of the super-
visor of elections, a county
court judge and the chairman of
the board of county commis-
sioners.
However, it was not then-
Highlands County Commission
Chairman David Flowers who
served in that capacity, it was
commissioner Bob Bullard.
According to state law, in the
event any member of the coun-
ty canvassing board is unable to
serve they can be replaced.
However, it is that method of
replacement that has been
called into question.
Florida state statues provide
that if county commission
chairman is unable to serve or is
disqualified, the board of coun-
ty commissioners is allowed to
appoint as a substitute member
one of its members "who is not
a candidate with opposition in
the election being canvassed
and who is not an active partic-
ipant in the campaign or candi-

opposition in the election being

According to the minutes of
their meeting, during the Oct.
21 Highlands County
Commission session, then-vice
chairman David Flowers indi-
cated to his fellow board mem-
bers that if and when he was
made chair-
man, he would
designate com-
missioner Bob
Bullard as his
replacement.
"I was in the
process of run-
FLOWERS ning a cam-
paign and
knew it would not be appropri-
ate for me to be a canvassing
board member," he said.
However, a search of the
minutes of subsequent commis-
sion meetings has not yet turned
up if or when the board took
any such action.
Flowers was disqualified
from serving on the canvassing
board during the September pri-
mary, as he was a Republican
candidate running for the office
of Highlands County sheriff.
However, he was not successful
in his bid and therefore became
eligible to serve on the canvass-
ing board for the general elec-
tion.
Flowers said that there was
comprehensive training that
would have had to have been

office for him to serve in that
capacity.
"I didn't have that training at
that time and Mr. Bullard did,"
he said.
Local activist Preston Colby
pointed out that the penalty for
officer assuming to act before
qualification may be found
guilty of a second degree mis-
demeanor.
Colby has been raising
numerous questions about the
way the canvassing board con-
ducted the count and who was
handling bal-
lots during the
evening's vote
tallying.?
He also h eas p
charged the
canvassing
board was
guilty of sun- COLBY
shine law vio-
lations during the evening.
Could the actions void the
election?
"I hope not," he responded.
In addition to direction from
the Florida Division of
Elections, the canvassing board
has asked for an opinion from
the office of Florida Attorney
General Charlie Crist on the

mer canvassing board meetings

Jim Weed turns over Heartland Youth Football after 18 years


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Exect'lir Editor
SEBRING
Jim Weed is finally doing what his wife asked
him to do 19 years ago. He is no longer going to
be actively involved in youth football.
"We moved to Sebring in 1986, and I had
always been involved up north in all different kinds of
sports, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts. Everything the kids
got involved in, I got involved in. When we moved
here, my wife asked me to promise her that I wouldn't
get involved." Weed said.
Last month Weed turned over the reigns of the
Heartland Youth Football League, which he formed
with a few other men in the late 1980s. Mark Every of
Fort Meade is the new president.
Shortly after moving to Sebring, Weed watched his
nephew practice football in the second year of what
was then called Highlands Youth Football. He noticed
that.the coaches needed more help, so he volunteered.
And saw things he thought could be done differently.
By the end of the year, he asked the league presi-
dent if he planned to go another year. "He-didn't. 1
told him I would like to, so basically when I got in
there I through it all out and started over. The only
thing I kept was the uniforms," Weed said.
Only three of the former league members stayed on
with Weed.
That first year he ordered more than $18,000 in,
football equipment to start the league again. He want-
ed eight teams to play, up for the two in Avon Park
and two in Sebring that had previously been playing.
The equipment arrived in June and with no place to
store it, it landed at the Weed's home.
Eight teams, making up the Midget and PeeWee
divisions, played that first year. A board of four men
oversaw the association, and the school district
allowed the teams to use their fields for games.
That first year, games were played in Avon Park
and Sebring, and the concession stand traveled with
the games.
Two years later, a Pop Warner official from
Clewiston talked with Weed about joining the Pop
Warner association. Three months later, the board
decided to make the movie.
Within two years, the association had grown.
Playoffs were held with teams coming from as far
away as Jupiter.
The playoffs were short lived. It was too hard to
balance out the weights and ages of the players. "We
tried to get it all in line, but it became such a battle,"
Weed said.
No longer were the teams playing just from
Highlands County. With Hardee County, Arcadia,


ROMONA WASHINGTON/News-Sun
Jim Weed (far right) was recognized for his 18 years of service to the Heartland District Pop Warner Youth Football
program during the First Team All-Heartland Scholar Athlete Awards Banquet on Saturday. Making the presenta-
tion were district board members (from left) scholastic coordinator Mark Every, second vice president/cheer coordi-'
nator Lorri Lammie, secretary Phyllis Beach and first vice president Vreen Crawford. Every was named the new
president of the association.


Frostproof, and for a short time, Okeechobee, playing
in the association, the name was officially changed to
Heartland Youth Football League. Fort Meade joined
a year later.
Although Okeechobee and Arcadia are no longer
part of the league and Frostproof dropped out last
year, the league has continued to grow.
For the past several years, 30 teams have been
active in the association with more than 1,000 kids
taking part in the football oi cheer side of Pop Warner.
Mark Every, the association's new president,
brought the scholastic involvement of Pop Warner
when he joined the association six years ago.
"It was something I wanted to do, but I was already
spread so thin. Mark came in and was willing to do
the administration part of scholastics" Weed said.
Last month, Every and his committee put together a
banquet to honor several students who have kept their
academic scores high, been involved in their commu-
nity and still played football or cheered for a team.
Weed said the biggest highlight of the past 18 years
has been to see the athletes work toward the scholastic
recognition.
"Every once in a while you'll get a trhnks fromn a


parent or a coach for your involvement in`keeping the
league organized, but the most rewarding part of this
has been being out there on Saturdays and watching
the kids play, knowing you had a part in it.
"The kids enjoy it and are getting something out of
it. It's more than just a sport, they are preparing for
life. That always meant more to me than anything,"
Weed said.
As for the future of the league, Weed is more than
willing to turn it over to Every.
"I think he will be able to take it to that next level
that I always wanted to. He can grow it bigger while
maintaining that same discipline," he said, adding that
he couldn't have done anything without the entire
board. "Everyone has worked really hard. They are
there for the kids, not for themselves."
Weed hopes Every and the board will be able to get
the league involved at the state level and host more
state events in Highlands County.
"But, in order to do that it's going to take more than
the board. It's going to take the entire community," he
said. "This is not baseball. Each football team repre-
sents 30-40 kids, so it would be a big deal that would
need the xhhole coinmuniti's involvement."

Prekindergarten

program

pre-applications

accepted now
Special to the News-Sun
More details are becoming
available about the voluntary
prekindergarten program
(VPK) that will be offered to
eligible Highlands County chil-
dren beginning in the fall of
2005. Pre-applications are now
being accepted by the School
Readiness Coalition of
Highlands County for the pro-
gram.
Pre-applications can be com-
pleted by going to the following
Web site and clicking on the
link for PARENT Pre-
Application: www.upkflorida.or
g. Pre-applications submitted
through the Web site are auto-
matically forwarded to the 'local
School Readiness Coalition for
further processing.
Pre-application forms may
be picked up at the information
desk at the Highlands County
School Board district office
(426 School St., Sebring) or at
local branches of the Highlands
County Library (Avon Park,
Sebring, and Lake Placid
offices). A pre-application form
can also be mailed to interested
parents who call the coalition
office and request one.
Completed pre-applications
should be mailed to the coali-
tion office. (P.O. Box 313,
Sebring, FL 33871) or faxed to
402-1724.
It is important for parents to
understand that completion of a
VPK pre-application does not
formally register their child for
the VPK program, and is only
the first step of that process.
The complete process for for-
mal enrollment of a child for


Pre-K


providers


needed
Special to the News-Sun
As more details become
available about Florida's new
voluntary prekindergarten pro-
gram (VPK) potential
providers are beginning to con-
sider whether they want to offer
the program in their centers and
schools.
Highlands County will have
a great demand for pre-k class-
rooms, and will need the
involvement of quality private
childcare providers and non-
public schools to successfully
implement VPK in our county.
The option to be a private
pre-k provider for either the
school-year (540 instructional
hour) or summer (300 instruc-
tional hour) program is avail-
able to childcare centers, non-
public schools, faith-based cen-
ters and schools, and family.
childcare homes who meet spe-
cific criteria. Private centers
and childcare homes must be
licensed by DCF. They must
also be accredited by specified
agencies, hold Gold Seal status,
or meet local eligibility criteria
established by the School
Readiness Coalition which are
still under development.
Public school districts are
required by law to offer the
summer VPK program, and
must accept every child who
wants to enroll in the summer
program. Public schools have
the option of whether or not to
offer the school-year VPK pro-
gram. The Highlands County
school district does not plan to
offer the school-year program.
Individual VPK providers
determine how to schedule the
instructional hours for their
pre-k program, and are being
encouraged to use creativity
when designing their programs.
A remaining unanswered
question of concern to potential
pre-k providers is the amount
they will be reimbursed to pro-


vide VPK. The stipend for
each VPK child will be deter-
mined by the Florida legisla-
ture when they meet in regular
session this spring.

how to become a VPK provider
call the coalition's executive
director, Colleen Rafatti, at
385-3672, ext. 234.


the VPK program is:
Step 1: Complete and submit
the pre-application now.
Step 2: Later this spring,
complete a formal application
and submit it to the Early
Learning (School Readiness)
Coalition. The coalition will
automatically notify families
who completed the pre-applica-
tion when the formal applica-
tion is available.
Step 3: Submit the formal
application, with proof of the
child's age, to the coalition. To
be eligible, a child must be a
Florida resident and be 4 years
old by Sept. 1.

Step 4: Select a VPK
provider. The coalition will pro-
vide families a list of approved
Highlands County VPK
providers. Parents who-would
like their child to participate in
VPK at a private provider site
must' contact that provider
directly, and obtain the
provider's permission to enroll
the child. (Private providers
may have a limited number of
VPK student openings avail-
able.) If a parent's choice is to
enroll a child in the summer
public school program they will
work with the coalition directly
to enroll. (All eligible children
who apply for the summer pub-
lic school program will be
accepted.)
Step 5: Parents notify the
Early Learning (School
Readiness) Coalition of their
VPK provider choice. The
coalition will then formally reg-
ister the child for the program.
In 2002 Florida voters passed
a constitutional amendment to
create the voluntary prekinder-
garten (VPK) program.
Legislation approved in special
session last December, and
signed into law by Governor


Jeb Bush in January 2005, pro-
vided the framework for imple-
mentation of the program.
The program, which is free to
all Florida families, will pro-
vide 4-year-old's an opportuni-
ty to learn and practice the
skills they will need to be suc-
cessful in kindergarten and
throughout life. Emphasis will
be placed on development of
early literacy, which is essential
to learning to read.
Two program options will be
offered to parents locally: a
school-year long program total-
ing 540 hours of instruction
beginning in the fall of 2005,
and a summer program totaling
300 hours of instruction begin-
ning in the summer of 2006.
In Highlands County, select-
ed public schools will offer
only the summer VPK program,
beginning in 2006. It is not yet
known what private providers
or private schools will offer the
school-year or summer VPK
programs in Highlands County.
The School Readiness
Coalition (which will soon be
changing its name to the Early
Learning Coalition) is working
with childcare providers and
representatives of public and
private schools who may be
interested in delivering the
VPK program.
A special informational
meeting is planned for potential
VPK providers at 1 p.m.
Tuesday, Feb. 22, at the coali-
tion's office, located at the
Heartland Career Connection
One-Stop Center (2730 US 27
North, Sebring).
Parents or providers who
need more information about
the VPK program are requested
to contact the coalition's execu-
tive director, Colleen Rafatti, at
385-3672, ext. 234.

Advocates in the Big Apple


Governor proposes to reform

Medicaid, cut Medically Needy


SCourtesy photo
On a recent trip to New York City, Mary Rose Heston, along
with her family parents Terry and Michelle and brothers,
John Paul and Charles displays a Ridge Area Arc hurri-
cane shirt in front of the National Broadcasting Company
building. The Hestons took the Arc hurricane t-shirts in
hopes of calling some attention to the recent hurricanes that
hit Florida and to advocate for the Ridge Area Arc on the
'Today Show.' The group did not meet the 'Today Show'
hosts but left shirts for Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Ann Curry
and Al Roker.


By DEE BIRD
Special to the News-Sun
If you are a Medicaid,
Medical Needy or Healthy Kids
recipient, due to low income or
due to disability (physical
health and mental health), the
Legislature is going to have
public hearings around the state
on the Medicaid reform issue
and those who are lobbying the
reform are trying to get those
who are on the program to
come and testify.
The first hearing is today
in Tampa.
The governor wants to limit
benefits and allow HMO's and
other providers to determine
how long one can get services
and what benefits one can get.
He also wants to budget a pre-
mium for each beneficiary,
break it up into three cate-
gories: basic benefits; enhanced
benefits and catastrophic bene-
fits, and base the premium
on health status. If one is con-
sidered high risk, one will pay a
larger premium.
A person who gets these ben-
efits would only be able to get
access to his or her enhanced
benefits if they comply with a
"health regime" or disease
management plan developed by
a doctor and the HMO. If the
person follows the plan he or
she would get access to the rest
of the premium for purchase of
something like eye glasses, or
hearing aides, or the person
might choose to save it up for
the purchase of private health
insurance if one gets a job ...
this is the plan.
Many recipients have a lot of
concerns about this, but need
people who are directly affect-
ed to share what they think.


The Florida Senite anii
House are conducting i join
public hearing on Medicaid
reform in Tampa. The purpose
of the hearing is to gather infor-
mation from providers ;ald
IMedicaid recipients who may
be affected by changes to
Florida's Medicaid program.
The hearing is from 1-4 p.m.
today at University of South
Florida Gibbons Aluimni
Center, located near the main
entrance at Fowler Avenue and
Collins Boulevard.
A $3 visitor-parking pass is
required to park on campus for
the public hearing. There is a
parking service building at this
entrance where a pass can he
purchased.
For additional information
on the public hearings visit the
Web site at www.n./ilorida-

w.laspx?id=55 or call Steve
Lesky, Tampa Bay Heallhcare
Collaborative, at (727) 204-
9895 or e-mail him at
tbhc@earthlink.net.
Make your voice count. If
you are unable to attend the
public hearing on Friday. but.
still would like to voice your
concern, you may write, call
and e-mail your local legisla-
tors and Senators before Friday.
Faxes can also be sent to
385-8344 and those concerns
will be forwarded to the proper
parties.

ument is notarized; also make

SHighlands, Glades and Henry
Counties would begin.
Eventually, restoration will
take in all of the Kissimmee
River Drainage Basin including
more than one million acres of
land with an estimated $11 mil-
Slion being spent on the program
during the 10- to 12-year pro-
gram lifetime. The South
Florida Water Management
SDistrict Works of the District
Rule will be implemented as a
regulatory tool for landowner
that chooses not to participate
in the program.
FDACS will team up with
"Natural Resources Conserv-
-,ation Service to develop Best
1Management Practices conser-
:vation plans for landowners to
'comply with water quality reg-
ulations set by the Department
of Environmental Protection
. for the Lake Okeechobee
Restoration Act and the Florida
IWatershed Restoration Act.
Participating agricultural land-
owners can qualify for up to a
75 percent cost-share reim-
bursement, 50 percent from
NRCS and 25 percent from
FDACS.
The participation in this pro-
gram will put landowners into
presumption of compliance
with state water quality stan-
dards from the Department of
Environmental Protection.
FDACS will make initial
contact with the landowner for
this program. The first focus of
the program will be cow/calf
operations because of the total
acreage involved. All agricul-
tural land uses will be covered
Before the end of the program.
SMost of the conservation plans
will be written by technical
Service providers and reviewed
Sby NRCS.
A landowner that chooses
Snot to take part in the program
Swill be responsible for monitor-
ing water quality on their land.

Sports Editor -


When driving, arrive alive

Years ago, Florida had a slogan aimed at promoting
safe driving and curbing traffic fatalities: "Arrive Alive."
The pointed slogan expressed the most important goal
of traveling down the road. It might be time to revive it.
In January of this year, 264 motorists didn't arrive
alive in Florida, according to the Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. This was the high-
est number of traffic deaths for any month since January
1999. Since the new year began, six people have died on
Highlands County roads, and accidents causing serious
injuries occur almost daily.
This month the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
released a study revealing that automobile accidents
cause 40,000 deaths a year in the United States. The
institute compared that to a commercial jetliner crashing
every day and killing everyone aboard.
Rushed holiday travel and alcohol were cited as being
the largest contributors to fatal accidents. But institute
spokesman Charles Farmer blamed accidents on this:
Most drivers think their skills are superior. In other
words, everyone else may be a bad driver, but they are
invincible.
The grim reality is that when moving vehicles become
lethal weapons, no one is immune. It only takes a split
second of carelessness to cause an accident and end a
life.
That's why all drivers would do well to remind them-
selves of the responsibilities of operating a car and be
vigilant about practicing safety measures. Such as:
Always wear your seat belt anc insist that your pas-
sengers buckle up.
Observe speed limits and decrease your speed when
rain, fog and darkness diminish visibility and your abili-
ty to control your car. Take the time to get where you
need to go.
Don't run stop signs and red lights. Remember that
a yellow caution light means you should prepare to stop.
Don't drink or use drugs and drive. Know whether
prescription drugs you take can impair your reflexes abil-
ity to drive.
Don't talk on cell phones and drive. A recent study
found that young people respond with the reflexes of an
elderly person' when they're driving and talking on the
phone.
Don't drive distracted. Turn off the radio and stop
the conversations if they keep you from paying attention
_ to your driving and what's going on around you.
Use turn signals when turning and changing lanes.
S- Don't drive aggressively, fight traffic or zig-zag in
and out of lanes.
Don't succumb to road rage. Getting angry with
other drivers can cause you to drive aggressively and risk
accidents.
Use extra caution when driving at night, on holi-
days and during rush hours the times when most fatal
car accidents occur. Stay off the roads if you don't have
to be on them.
Watch for pedestrians, especially at night.
Educate your children about driving safety. Young
people ages 16-24 die in car crashes more often than any
other group.
And when you're behind the wheel of a car, remind
yourself that your goal is to arrive at your destination
alive. In the end, that's the only thing that matters.

Post preparing

for big auction
Editor:
Plans for the 10th annual
fund-raiser auction to be hosted
by American Legion Post 69 in
Avon Park are proceeding on
schedule.
The event will be held in the
post auditorium at 1301 W. Bell
St. on Saturday, March 5, at 1
p.m. sharp. Post Commander
Dick Francis has decided to
open the doors for viewing at
10 a.m. rather than noon as pre-
viously announced. This will
allow early viewers time to
contact friends or neighbors
about items on which the latter
would wish to bid.
As in the nine previous
annual auctions, internationally
known auctioneer Tom Kelly,
from Calgary, Alberta, will be
on hand to donate his talented
service. Likewise, all other
work involving the auction is
voluntary so that all proceeds
go directly to Post 69. The auc-
tion is a prime source of rev-
enue on which the post relies to
provide, important services to,
areatveteransaiiad their families,
as well as contributing toVari-
ous charities and causes within
Highlands County.
A number of area businesses
have already contributed valu-
able items or gift certificates
and owners have promised to
do so before auction day. We
thank them all sincerely, and a
list of all businesses participat-
ing will be published after the
auction. We also extend sincere
thanks to members of the post
and of the community who
have already donated items.
We will continue accepting
new or good used items. Due to
limited storage, it would be
very helpful if such items could
be brought to the post the after-
noon of Friday, March 4, or the
morning of Saturday, March 5
between 8 and 10 a.m. If this is
not possible, please contact
Jack or Anne Kelly at 452-2477
any day before noon.
For fun, for bargains, and for
Legion Post 69, please join us
March 5 and bring your friends.
Refreshments and lunch will be
available on the premises.

How decisions

are justified?

Editor:
Do I misunderstand the dif-
ference in purpose between
business and government?
I was taught that government
was set up to serve the people,
particularly its citizens. The
United States government was
established "of the people, for
the people, and by the people"
according to historical data.
I was also taught that busi-
ness was established to serve
the owner and' stockholders,
while providing either a service


or product, which is purchased
by the public.
How do you rationalize and
then justify government deci-
sions that affect the citizens
whose programs are being cut,
that it is being done because it
is not good business?

Where is help

when needed?
Editor:
I have been a taker of your
newspaper for several years
Sand I have written several arti-
cles in your paper. I have been
very unsatisfied with the gov-
ernment on several different
things. My biggest beef now is
that no one will do anything
towards helping me in getting
something done for my half-
sister that is in a home in Ocala
now.
The story starts last fall
when we went to Philadelphia,
Tenn. My half-sister was in a
home up there because she had
Lou Gehrig's disease. She
".could not move or talk. They
used an alphabet card to talk
with her. Then after we left she
quit eating, so I e-mailed seven
days a week and talked to her
like an army sergeant and she
went back to eating.
Everything was going well
until her husband had a heart
attack and they could not
revive him. Her nephew had
power of attorney at that' time.
Then her son canceled every-
thing and took over.
He has her in a home in
Ocala now. He has made a set-
tlement without her consent.
He does not care about any-
thing, just what he can get out
of the deal.
I have been working for
more than four months to get
equipment to where she can
talk, but her son will not give
the permission for her to have
it. He knows that if she can talk
there will be a great many
changes, and he will no longer
be in charge. I have contacted
Elder Abuse and some other
places but none of them will do
anything to help her.
This country will bust their
butts to help the other coun-
tries, but when it comes to their
own people, it comes to hell
with them. I still try to have a
positive mind and believe that
there is someone out there who
will help her to where she can
talk.
Her brother has worked with
her fingers and hands and have
them where they will move.
That is another thing, why can't
there be someone to give her
therapy?
If there is anyone out there
that knows someone who can
help Margaret please let me
know. Thank you.

What happened

to 'Bracero?'
Editor:
I was talking to Bill the other
day about illegal aliens. I said
"Bill, we have to have them to
pick the fruit ana tend to our
crops, things most folks do not
like to do."
Bill said, "Well in most
respects 1 agree with you on
what you said, but how long do
you think the average person
wants to keep a job like that?
As soon as they can, they want
to move up to some kind of a
job that takes a little more skill
and pays better, and I do not
blame them for that, not for a
country minute. However,
when they get this better job,
then they are interfering with
the people that were born here
or came here as legal immi-
grants and are having a hard
time finding employment.
"As I said before, almost all
of us had parents or grandpar-
ents that came from a foreign
country. Not a dar thing
wrong with that. But by gosh,
they came with visas and pass-
ports. They did not slip through
the back door. Sure we need
people to thin lettuce, pick fruit
and many other chores that are
seasonal, but what in the sam
punch ever happened to 'The
Bracero Program.'
"It was a system that allowed
people to come here legally to
work for certain periods of time
in our agriculture and then
return to the country that they
came from. I believe the first
time they came was for six
months and depending on
necessity, the workers could
obtain a six-month extension.
Folks came back and worked
for the same employer year
after year and the employer
was required to maintain a
decent place for them to live
and to pay the going wage.
"I know that there were iso-
lated incidents where employ-
ers did not fulfill that obliga-
tion to the workers, but, that is
when the government should
step in and make sure that they
do. There is absolutely nothing
wrong with having folks from
other countries give us a hand
with the crops but let's do it
legally. We have plenty of our
own small legal problems, let's
not import them."

REAL LIFE

Phil Attinger


Am I ready

to go from

Dude to

Dad?

Lately, I've had people call
me, "Sir." I'm not a "sir." If
anything, I'm "dude."
In college, everyone was
"dude." It didn't matter if a guy
actually surfed or even went
outdoors. He was "dude."
(Women were "babe," but
only the ones you knew ,well.)
Among my friends, there are
no more dudes. They're all
dads.
A lot of them married right
after graduation like I did.
Some stayed working singles,
then hit 29 and got married. By
the time my marriage broke up,
the "dudes" were gone.
It's weird. I arrived at the
News-Sun, one of two married
guys in a newsroom full of sin-
gles. Five years later, I'm
divorced and all my friends are
married with kids. When I
asked about football night, they
were usually at home or at a
school'function.
I used to reboot on the week-
ends with my cousin in
Matlacha (rhymes with, "Have
a great day"). Randy lived with
a fisherman, beside a bait shop,
on the water, with his own fish-
ing boat moored out back.
Now Randy's a dad.
Beautiful wife and daughter.
Inland suburban home. SUV in
the driveway. Morning com-
mute over the causeway.,
The boat's in the back yard
and will see water when he fin-
ishes working on it.
Over the last couple of years,
I've tried to recover.my "dude-
ness." I jumped out of a plane
(with a parachute ...). I rode a
motorcycle (in a parking lot). I
flew in a B-17 (threw up). Took
photos from an ultralight (care-
fully). I hiked and dove with
scuba gear (out of breath, both
times).
I even wore a kilt in
December in San Francisco.
That's brave.
Truth is, I don't need "dude-
ness" anymore. I'd like to work
toward "dad-ness." I've got a
3-year-old cousin and a 2-year-
old nephew. When Dad was my
age (Where's the soap box?),
he had three kids and one on
order.
We have a Home Depot in
town and a Lowe's on the way.
I'm starting to want a wife,
mortgage payments and wood
shop to build that outdoor deck.
Once or twice, I helped pick up
kids from school. It was fun,
but I couldn't carry more than
one in the cab of a truck.
I weht looking at cars recent-
ly and God, help me I
looked at sedans, wagons and
SUVs. Everyone from Jeep to
Ford and Volkswagen to
Porsche has an off-road family
car for the guy who can't
decide: Dude or dad? Dad or
dude?
Maybe, "du-dad...."
Dodge doesn't make it any
easier selling a Hemi-powered
station wagon lugging a load of
lumber and sprinting ,past
Ferraris on two-lane blacktop.
Or Chevy, with the Avalanche
pickup and its fold down back
wall to make a bigger cargo
bed.
I could get a crew-cab four-
by-four truck. I could haul kids,
mountain bikes and fishing
gear, and could still be a
"weekend dude ...."
At least it could look cool
picking up kids from school.

Fiin inment1 l or trivi al ] 'Over 55' stipulation is tough for some

I believe it was that
great American FROM
philosopher Yogi
Berra who once said D
"You can see a lot just
by observing." Ken H
Well, I have been
observing for more than eight
decades, and I want to share
one of the most useful observa-
tions I have made.
Here it is: The people who
seem to lead the most fulfilling
and fruitful lives have learned
to distinguish between the fun-
damental and the trivial and to
react differently depending
upon into which category the
issue at hand falls. Conceding
that some people make changes
for very basic and important
reasons, I am convinced that a
significant percentage of the
church hoppers, job hoppers,
yes, and even marriage hoppers
do so for trivial reasons.
The person who notices early
on that there is no perfect
church, marriage or job, and
that one takes such relation-
ships on balance has the best
shot at leading a stable and
rewarding life: not only that,
but also of bringing a measure
of stability to those in his or her
orbit.
I would leave a job if I felt
the company philosophy was

1a,


basically unethical or
(EN'S if I believed it was
being managed in such
N a way that it could not
succeed and I was in
nnuuni no position to effect a
change. I would not
leave if the boss said, "Do it
this way," and I would rather do
it that way, and either would
work, even though I felt my
way was better. The boss
needs to be the boss.
I would leave any church I
felt was doctrinally unsound; if
the focus of the
preaching/teaching was not
Bible-centered; if it had no mis-
sions or youth programs; if the
leadership was unloving,
unspiritual or immoral. Not if I
had a problem with some
aspects of the music or order of
service, physical arrangements,
parking, decor, etc. If any such
could be brought more into line
with my preferences I might
make suggestions, but I would
not leave a church over it.
Every pastor has his own con-
ception as to the image he
wants his church to project. He
deserves some latitude.
I would consider leaving a
marriage if my wife demon-
strated or professed an ongoing
illicit affair with another, or
with others, and refused to be


restored, or if she threatened
my life. I would not leave her
because she is a neatnik and I a
messy or vice versa, or becausL
we do not completely share
each others' interests. Such
things can either be worked out
or lovingly accommodated.
Really, who cares if the cap is
left off the toothpaste?

At the outset I allowed that
some people do leave churches,
marriages, jobs for very sub-
stantial reasons. The thing that
earmarks the hoppers is the
characteristic of going from
church-to-church-to-church;
marriage-to-marriage-to mar-
riage; job-to-job, etc., looking
for a perfection that can never
be found this side of heaven.
Happiness will elude them and
in most cases they will not be
very useful.

What it all seems to boil
down to in this imperfect world
is learning to make a distinction
between the true deal breakers
and the "minor rubs," as C.S.
Lewis puts it. Those who can't
are condemned to a frustrated
life of.hopping.

With the rising num-
her of grandparent- GRAN
headed households in
the United States, a WIS
concern has been
brought up that may Di
affect many, especially Thib
in Florida. -
That concern is
housing for those that overnight
find themselves raising either
their grandchildren or kin chil-
dren due to death of the biolog-
ical parents, divorce, incarcera-
tion of one or more of the par-
ents due to drugs, domestic vio-
lence, mental illness or child
neglect and/or abuse. It can
happen to you or to your neigh-
bor.
Our community is filled with
"over 55" communities. Many
come to our area to get away
from the cold and snow up
north and keep the local econo-
my spiraling upwards. They
come to their winter homes to
enjoy their retirement.
There are also many that are
year round residents in the
"over 55" communities.
Whether it be manufactured.
housing or gated communities,
they have invested a lot of
money into these retirement
homes.
In the 19 largest counties in
the state of Florida there are
435 "over 55" manufactured
housing communities contain-
ing 134,772 home sites.
Highlands County is one of the
counties counted with 14 "over
55" manufactured housing
communities with a total of
4,411 home sites. In May of
2004 there was a 95 percent
Occupancy rate in these homes.
These numbers do not include
gated communities.
If you are someone who lives
in an "over 55" community and

grandchildren or kin-
ship caregiver
overnight, you may
find yourself searching
for another home
quickly. You do not
want the children in
foster care but they
cannot live with you in


your home because of the "over
55" stipulation. Not only is
your life in a turmoil because
you are checking into legalities
to protect the children, buying
their necessary needs and
checking into school needs, but
you are also trying to find a
place to live.
The latest figures for Florida
of 371,000 children living with
either their grandparents or kin-
ship caregivers and 2,000 chil-
dren in Highlands County is a
misnomer because the numbers
rise daily and those figures are
months old. The housing situa-
tion is 'a major issue, not only
due to age restrictions but to the
size of your home. That guest
bedroom for visitors may not be
sufficient for even two children.
There is a GrandFamilies
House in Boston. With the col-
laboration of three different
agencies this project resulted in
26 family-sizedapartments plus
a unit for a live-in manager.
This involved total reconstruc-
tion and expansion of a dilapi-
dated nursing home but these
GrandFamilies now have a
home that not only fits the
needs of the grandparents but
also those of the children with
legal aide experts and coun-
selors and emotional support.
This innovative project was
brought to life by (BAC-YOU),
Boston Aging Concerns-Young
and Old United, the Women's
Institute for Housing and
Economic Development, and

actively adapted public funding.
This project is hoped to be a
model for other communities
for affordable living for those
grandparents that find them-
selves parenting again.
A study done in the research
and planning of this project
showed that parenting grand-
parents showed significant
health prQblems added to the
problem of very low incomes.
All surveyed spoke of the isola-
tion they felt raising the chil-
dren because they lack the sup-
ports parents typically rely on.
As the local support group
here continues to grow in mem-
bers because the numbers of
children being raised by their
grandparents or kin families
continues to grow, I wanted to
educate our "over 55" residents
that this indeed can happen to
you.
The next meeting/get togeth-
er of the local support group
will be Saturday, Feb. 19, in.
Avon Park. The time has been
set for 12-3 p.m. and food will
be served. Children are always
welcome as it gives them the
companionship of other chil-
dren being raised in similar.
home situations.
If you have found yourself
parenting your grandchildren or
kin children please join us for
the support and information
that is available at all the meet-
ings.
You can reach me at 382-
3511 or e-mail me at mazda-
grandma@yahoo.com for
address and directions to the
meeting or just someone to talk
to that does understand what
you are going through.

Volunteers R.

come from

Indiana to

help build

Habitat home .


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The enthusi-
asm and compassion are over-
whelming as volunteers from
First United Methodist Church
in Hagerstown, Ind., travel for
two days to arrive at their desti-
nation in Sebring.
They traveled all this way to
help assist in building one of
the Habitat for Humanity
homes for Desiree Windham.
The group encountered two ice
storms on their way to Florida.
The first one hit them in south-
ern Indiana. But, that didn't
stop these volunteers from ful-
filling their mission to help oth-
ers. Then, before arriving in
Florida they were hit with yet
another ice storm in Atlanta.
One of the volunteers, Betty
Hoover, said, "We do a lot of
things for unfortunate people."
Hoover also helped to volun-
teer in the Highlands County
Habitat office with putting
together the newsletters.

volunteers from First United Methodist Church group are Ron and Cathy Graham, Jim and Sharon
Howell, Ron and Silvia Hoover, Mike and Pat Maddy, Marcia Miller, Linda Ford, David Dilley, Bill
Waltz and Betty Hoover.


This group really looked
familiar with the building
process and seemed to know
what they were doing. One of
the volunteers, Sharon Howell,
said that First United Methodist


Church has work camps in
Richmond, Ind., where they
help to build homes as well as
building sites on Indian reser-
vations.
When asked if their group


plans to tour the Central Florida
area while they're down Howell
smiled and said, "No, we're
here to work. But, if we do have
time after work we might try to
.see the area."

nachelle Mejias
can hold up plenty
of weight, and by
Saturday, she may
be able to hoist a state cham-
pionship trophy as well.
The sophomore
weightlifter is making a
return trip to the state tourna-
ment in Deland on Saturday,
and has her eyes on deliver-
ing the first state champi-
onship for Avon Park.
"I'm excited," Avon Park
head coach Don Hickman
said. "I think Anachelle defi-
nitely has the best chance of
placing in the state, and I
think she could break the
state record and win it."
Her 190-pound bench press
at sectionals was 25 pounds
better than the high mark set
in her 183-pound class at last
year's event state event, the
first year the championships
were sanctioned by the
FHSAA.
"I did not believe I was
able to do it," Mejias said of
her performance at districts,
in which she. coupled the 190-
pound bench with an 140-
pound clean-and-jerk.
Mejias already owns every
school record, surpassing the
achievements of her sister,
Danna Mejias, and cousins
Ireneese Mercardo and
Solirene Mercardo, all of
whom lifted at Avon Park
before her.
"She was always coming
to watch them when she was
a little girl, and then she got
into it when she got here, and
said, 'I'm going to be a lifter,
too,' and she sure was,"
Hickman said. "She's stepped
up and taken over."
"I thought it was interest-
ing. It was there, and they
had fun, and that's what I like
about being in a sport,"

night.
Sebring, which lost 70-34
the last time the teams met,
.trailed by two and had a chance
to tie the game in the final sec-
onds, but Shakinah Crumity's
driving layup missed and the
Streaks were forced to foul
with 2.9 seconds left.
A successful free throw' on
the other end made it a three-
point game, and a desperation
shot failed at the buzzer to end
Sebring's season.
"We played our best game of
the season and we lost,"
Sebring coach Robert Sampson
said. "It's hard to say it that
way, but it's true.
"We played them tough. A
lot tougher than we played
them at home. We almost
pulled it off."
Palmetto Ridge led by three
at halftime, and expanded that
to an eight-point lead heading
into the final quarter before the
Streaks' rally.
Crumity led Sebring with 18
points.

Lakewood rallies to


knock out Sebring


BY JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
ST. PETERSBURG -
Lakewood High School was
able to overcome an early 2-1
deficit and Vanduelis
Tablotulos' controversial penal-
ty kick late in the first half pro-
vided the Spartans with what
proved to be the winning goal
in a 6-3 win over Sebring in the
first round of the Class 4A state
playoffs on Thursday.
Sebring had cleared the ball,
but the official whistled a hand
ball several seconds after the
play to give Tablotulos his
penalty shot, which barely beat


Sebring sophomore goalkeeper
Carl Belcher to the right for the
go-ahead score.
The Spartans (11-3-2) out-
shot the Streaks 17-4 in the
game and scored two quick
goals during the first 12 min-
utes of the second half to put
the match away.
Sebring co-captain Josh
Dobbins was not pleased with
the outcome or making any
excuses.
"I'm ashamed," he said. "I
just wanted one more (game)."
After the penalty kick,
Carlos Pineros scored an unas-

5th straight title not out

of question for Streaks


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Lady Red Devils (from left) Marcia Gooden, Anachelle Mejias and
Amanda Scali will be lifting in the state championship meet on
Saturday. Mejias, a favorite to win a state title, is sitting on 340
pounds of weights, her season-best total in the bench press and
clean-and-jerk.


Mejias said. "I like to be in a
sport where I can have fun,
and not only compete against
others but compete against
myself, and reach out for my
own goals."
Still, Mejias said her team-
mates play an integral role on
an Avon Park squad Hickman
said is marked by unity.
"It's the environment. The
environment I'm in, I think it
helps me do better because I
put a smile on people's
faces," she said. "It's for the
people you work with. To me


that's a big factor, because if
you're in an environment
that's not really good, how
can you get to your best, real-
ly?"
That drive pervades the
team, Hickman said.
"Anachelle and almost this
whole group of girls have
really learned to push them-
selves, because they have to
in this sport," Hickman said.
"I can say so much, but they
have to be able to have that

SEBRING The Blue
Streak wrestling team has built
quite a name for itself over the
years because of all their suc-
cess, but a ton of adversity this
season has made Sebring's
quest for a fifth straight district
championship a difficult task at
best. Nothing, of course, is
impossible, and co-captains
Blake Germaine and Dillon
McGovern are not conceding
anything when the bout begins
this afternoon.
First-year head coach Dave
Cunningham has lost three
wrestlers to injury and two for
grades, leaving him with only
nine wrestlers instead of 14 for
today's district tournament at
McKeel Academy in Lakeland.
Sebring's main concern will be
the Lake Wales Highlanders,
despite the fact that
Cunningham's Streaks beat
them last weekend with just


nine wrestlers.
Germaine, state runner-up in
2004 in his weight class, is con-
fident that he and the other
eight wrestlers will advance to
the regional tournament, but he
knows the Streaks may need
some help this weekend from
some other schools if they are
to beat the Highlanders.
"We only have nine guys,"
Germaine said Thursday. "We
know we might have a chance
of winning district, but we'll
have to have some help from
like Mulberry and Bartow to
beat Lake Wales. All of our nine
guys have a shot at winning dis-
trict."'
Coach Cunningham likes the
way his Streaks are wrestling
right now, but his main goal is
getting as many of his athletes
qualified for regional and state.
Here's how the first-year
Sebring head coach describes

SEBRING The Sebring

country's largest Porsche Club

The meet is co-hosted by the

Porsche clubs and is one of the
largest single gatherings of
Porsche automobiles in the
United States.
Registrar Nick Hrycaj said
that as of this week about 265

Pauline Au yang

Hip hop

influences kids
A little girl went to a
sleep-over at the home of her
aunt when she knelt to pray,
with her tiny hands clasped
she said. "Dear God, if you
can hear me, please stop my
daddy from hitting my
mommy. I am scared."
Her aunt, who is her
father's sister was in another
room and heard the prayers
of her 7-year-old niece. The
aunt confronted her brother
the following day. Although,
he admitted hitting his wife,
he played the blame game
and assigned himself as vic-
tim, yet he was the one who
had inflicted the blows.
The perpetrator of this
deed is a member of the hip
hop world. A world that our
children immortalized. This
is an industry where many of
our young people look for
role models. The reason they
choose these role modes is
because there'is difficulty
finding genuine role models
within their families or with-
in their communities, so they
look beyond the periphery of
their environment for some-
one to emulate.
A recent domesticvio-
lence summit, sponsored by
the Institute on Domestic
Violence in the African
American Community was
in Queens, N.Y., to examine
"how hip hop is affecting
attitudes toward women and
violence."
"Hip hop has a great
potential to educate the pub-
lic and set a positive exam-
ple," said IDVAAC
Executive Director Oliver
Williams. Chic Smith,
founder and vice president
of Urban Think Tank; said,
"By not stopping domestic
violence, you're sanctioning
it."
"You don't fight fire with
fire. You don't be the vio-
lence you are seeking to
destroy. You don't do it with
fists, with your mouth, or
with your attitude. I believe
in the possibility of transfor-
mation. Don't give up on
anyone. Challenge our broth-
ers t6 do better," said Asha
Bandele,-domestic violence
survivor arid editor-at-large
of "Essence Magazine."
Tylon Washington, of
Black Waxx record label,
said It was the responsibility
of the hip hop to "remind
artists about their influence
as role model, and educate
them about promoting posi-
tive, respectful, relationships
between men and women,"
he added.
In a national survey con-
ducted by End-abuse, it was
revealed that 50 percent of
men who assaulted their
wives, also frequently abuse
their children. While it also
showed that domestic vio-
lence, child abuse, and youth
violence are connected and
that there was urgent need
for our nation to implement
strategies and programs that
will prevent and address it.
As a service to the com-
munity, the News-Sun is
doing it best to increase pub-
lic awareness about domestic
violence and to provide
information and support
toward the education and
eradication of this problem.
Domestic violence is a
crime, if you are in immedi-
ate danger dial 911. to find a
shelter in your area, call the
national domestic violence
hotline at 800-799-SAFE.
Residents of Highlands
County can call the Peace
River Safe House at 386-.

SHARON JONES/News-Sun


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
ith the ever
W increasing
and press-
ing
demands
put on teachers today, it is
becoming more and more
difficult to provide one-on-
one time to students who
need it. This being the
case, teachers could sure
use a little help from vol-
unteers.
The Retired Senior
Volunteer Program, in col-
laboration with the
Optimist Club of Sebring
and the School Board of Sun 'N Lal
Highlands County, offers of volunte
much diffe
the perfect solution to this
dilemma through their
mentor/tutor project, which
provides seniors an oppor-
tunity to support teachers R
by offering their assistance
in the classrooms. While
there are many seniors cur-
rently participating in this
grand effort, there is, "
nonetheless, a need for "
more.
RSVP members who
sign up as volunteers for the mentor-
ing program are always well received
and valued by teachers and students
alike.
Carolyn Gilliam, of Sebring, knows
firsthand what a challenge teachers
face in providing for the educational
needs of their students, having herself
been a school teacher for 26 years
prior to her retirement seven years
ago. Teaching children is, by nature, a
demanding and challenging task; but
Gilliam said that today's teachers have
it harder than ever.
"They have so many demands put
on them by tighter regulations that bog
them down with paperwork and
accountability; and they desperately
need people to come in and help with
the work load in order to provide a
more quality education for each
child," Gilliam said.
Though she claims to be "retired,"
Gilliam still stays as busy as ever, and
still in the field of education. She is anr
RSVP member and goes to Sun 'N
Lake Elementary School every day
during the school year to work as a
volunteer mentor/tutor. As if that
weren't enough, she then brings her
grandson and another student home
With her in the afternoon where she
works with them until 5:30 or 6 p.m.
She had already been working as a
volunteer at Sun 'N Lake Elementary
School since her grandson started
kindergarten, when she heard about
the mentor/tutor program.
"I became interested in RSVP when
I heard that they check on people who
are home alone. When I looked into
that I found out about the tutoring,"
she said.
Since then she has been participat-
ing in the effort for the past three
years as an RSVP member.
Of her motivation, Gilliam stated, "I
miss teaching; I love working with
children; and I love seeing children be
more successful in their daily school
life." She continued, saying, "Seeing a
child's grades improve, like the first
time they get a 100 percent on a
spelling test, or being able to hear a
child recite the whole alphabet for the
first time, or getting their first reading
book is just awesome and rewarding."
Gilliam couldn't stress the value of
this program enough. "It is such a joy
to see a child actually achieve; and
with so many working families, many
parents have a hard time finding one-
on-one time with their children. All
children need an opportunity to have
someone to share with and to care
about them one-on-one." She especial-

ly enjoys it when she is working with
a student and can witness the moment
when they understand what they are
being taught. "It's like you can almost
see the light bulb go off when-they've
got it,' she said.
Gilliam likes to live by a motto she
picked up from her mother, "It's better
to wear out than to rust out." She said
that, in working as a mentor, "Senior
citizens can find a brand new need for
their lives."
RSVP member, Nancy Gill, of Lake
Placid, who has been with the mentor
program for three to four years now,
became involved because of her strong
belief in the importance of reading.
"I get excited about reading to chil-
dren," Gill said. "Reading is very
essential to learn because it is the
basis for everything else you do in
life."
Gill's daughter, to whom she read
often as a little girl, was partly respon-
sible for Gill becoming a volunteer
mentor.
"My daughter grew up and went to


college at Penn State and went to
work in Washington D.C. and she is
very much into the Everybody Wins


lives


f' pro'rinI up there, which.is
S a reading mentor program;
and that helped spur me on
Ai to do this."
Gill had already been
thinking about volunteer-
ing anyway because she
had learned about the men-
tor program through Nu-
Hope of Highlands County.
She had been sewing items
to donate to the Redland
Christian Migrant .
Association's learning cen-,
ters.
Gill said that she has
been really fortunate in her
life so far, and that to "give
1;, something worthwhile is a
great way to give back to
the community." She also
stated that the schools are
always in need, and that
"they are so happy when
you call to say that you are
wanting to volunteer as a
mentor." Not only are the
teachers happy about get-
NewsSun ting the assistance, but
hand how Gills experience has been
that "the children always
come to me smiling when I
open the classroom door to
S take them to the library to
work with them." She nor-
mally works one day a
week for an hour, spending
30 minutes with each of
two students.
r Something Gill also
pointed out is that "you
never know what you may
do or say that you're
unaware of that may make
a big difference or impression. It's a
good feeling when a person comes to
you later and says something about a
positive impact you had on their life."
Like the others, RSVP volunteer,
Dorothy Quist of Avon Park, retired
teacher of 27 years, finds it very
rewarding to work with children. "I
just love kids," she said. Quist serves
children at Fred Wild Elementary
School in Sebring usually once a week
for four hours and has been volunteer-
ing as a mentor/tutor for five or six
years.
"There's a lot of satisfaction in
working with children. Those kids hug
me when they see me. They know it's
helping them and they really appreci-
ate it," she said.
While it is impossible to know the
exact impact your efforts will have in
the life of a child in terms of their
future, Quist prays that "my work with
the children gives them a greater
opportunity for success."
Quist believes that every teacher
should have a volunteer; but knows
that "that doesn't happen." One of the
reasons she thinks people may hesitate
to volunteer is because they are afraid
of the commitment. But, Quist said
that the teachers are very grateful for
the help and Are flexible. "I can go
when I want," she stated.
Anyone interested in volunteering
for this worthy cause can contact
Kathleen Mills Montgomery at Nu-
Hope, 382-2134, Ext. 315; Laura Van
Horn at the Highlands County School
Board, 471-5662; or Gabe Read at the
Sebring Optimist Club, 453-2859.

Do right in the


eyes of everyone


"Be careful to do
what is right in the
eyes of everybody,"
writes the apostle
Paul in Romans
12:17.
If a man is dishon-
est in filling out his
income tax form, he
runs the risk of pay-
ing a fine. If a busi-
nessman is dishonest
and defrauds one of
his customers, he
may end up with no
customers at all. If
the news media dis-


- B1,






A MOMENT
WITH GOD
Rev. Richard
Fyffe
->


covers that a politician has been
dishonest, he stands to lose the
public trust and to retreat from
office in disgrace.
Even in the opinion of the
children of this world, honesty
seems to be the "best policy" -
as long as it remains profitable.
But if God were suddenly to
remove the governmental
method of checks and balances
which he ordained for our sin-
sick world, who could estimate
the deluge of dishonesty, decep-
tion, theft, fraud, and plunder
that would break forth!
The "law of the land" and the
natural law of God put a muzzle
on natural man and, as much as
possible, let him search his own
heart and count the temptations
that are haunting him there. In
most cases, only the threat of
retaliation (here or hereafter)
keeps envy from turning into
murder, keeps lust from becom-
ing adultery, and keeps greed
from growing into dishonesty.
Yet even if a man is outward-
ly able to live up to his bill-
board reputation as "Honest
Harry" or "Honest John." it
does not mean that God is ready
to give him a badge of honor.
The written law reveals that
God will judge the heart. In
other words, if a man is cov-


etous, or merely
desires to be dishon-
est, he can expect
God's wrath and
anger. On the Last
Day, God will expose
and judge him as a
liar and a thief.
Dear God, we
might say, who then
will escape the wrath
of God? Fall all men
are weak and sinful.
We may not carry
them out but we all
must admit that we
have thoughts that we


would be ashamed of if they
were exposed to the world. But
God has had mercy on us all; he
sent his Son into the world to
save sinners like you and me,
even to redeem the thief who
was executed on the cross next
to him. Jesus bore the punish-
ment for our sins so that we
might be freed from sin to
become the servants of right-
eousness.
We have the same forgive-
ness that belonged to the thief
on the cross, but with a much
greater opportunity to live out
the rest.of our lives according
to the words of the apostle Paul
that I quoted at the beginning.
With the help of the Holy Spirit
we should strive to glorify God
by setting a Christian example,
out of love for him who loved
us first. We should set the
example so that others may see
that we are Christians and have
the love of Christ our Savior for
all the world. So, let us "be
careful to do what is right in the
eyes of everybody."
