County loses a coaching legend


Former Avon Park coach
Joe Franza dies at 80
* A look back from the News-Sun photo
files, 6A
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK For more than 30
years, whether he was prowling the side-
lines at a football game or sitting behind
his desk as athletic director, Joe Franza
was the face and voice of Avon Park
sports.
So much so, in fact, that decades after


he retired, most of those who
knew him still called him
"Coach," or maybe even "Big
Daddy," rather than by his given
name.
Franza, who coached the Red
Devil football team longer than
anyone before or since and
played a huge role in the lives of FRAN
a generation of Avon Park and
Highlands County residents, died
Friday. He had just celebrated his 80th
birthday at a reunion with around 250 of
his. former players, fellow coaches and
friends.


He died while doing what he
loved the most bird hunting at
Sthe Avon Park Air Force
S Range- according to his son,
S1 Joe Franza Jr.
"His old' saying was he liked
to hunt first, fish second, play
golf third and pick guitars
S fourth," Joe Jr. said. "He was
Doing number one."
After serving with the Marines in the
Pacific in World War II, Coach Franza,
for whom the football field at Avon Park
High was named in 1991, attended


Erskine College ir


Roaring '20s


where he was a football and basketball
player and is now in the school's Hall of
Fame.
He came to Avon Park High School in
1949,and took over the football program
in 1952, which was the one year he also,
coached the baseball team. The Devils
went 0-8-1 in Franza's first season. but
that was far from an indication of things
to come.
From 1956-60, the Devils won lour
Ridge Conference titles in five %ears.
Franza would go on to, add three mor.-

Highlands Art League meets


for community 'think tank'


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A cross section
of Highlands County business,
government and education
leaders met Thursday with rep-
resentatives of the Highlands
Art League at Chicane's to talk
about art and youth.
The meeting of more than 30
people was designed as a "think


tank" to get community input as
to how to get youngsters more
involved with art.
Andrew Hughes of the
Wauchula State Bank, who will
take over as the event coordina-
tor for this year's art festival for
the art league, gave the bulk of
the presentation.
"We feel the momentum
building again," he said.


Students hear tales


of toiling for Christ

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Every year since its inception, the Heartland
Christian School has celebrated the missionaries in everyone's
midst by dedicating a special day to honor their work.
"(Missionary Day) is part of who we are," said Davil Noel,
headmaster of Heartland Christian School. "This is a day that is
special to us as we honor people who go out across the world to
spread the word. It is part of the Christian walk."
Heartland Christian School is a not-for-profit, non-denomina-
tional private school, which was brought to life when four sets of
parents mortgaged their homes to provide the capital to open it. It
currently has 216 students ranging from preschool to high school.
Missionary Day, which was Thursday, was partly designed to
educate the students about the vast varieties of mission experience,
and to highlight local ones.
Fifteen missionaries, many retired but some still active, arrived
at the school before the first bell to spend the day addressing class-
es of students. The students moved from presentation to presenta-
tion, while the missionaries stayed in one place.
This made for a logistical nightmare, but careful planning and
the student's cooperation, made the day a seamless success, culmi-

Hughes outlined the goals,
which involve using art to help
achieve everything from
increased abilities in science to
better reading, writing and
arithmetic.
"We want to create mutually
beneficial programs which use

said. "We want to partner with

committee has named a new

Lifelong Sebring resident
Dan Andrews will take over
the reins of the organization
as the new executive vice
president/chief executive offi-
cer.
The decision was given

executive board.

cially March 1, just in time

age that event for six years so
it won't be any problem," he
said.
In fact, Andrews believes
one of the major reasons he
was selected was his back-
ground in the community as
well as his ability to "hit the
ground running."
As chamber director,
Andrews will 'have a number
of duties to take care of dur-
ing the busy month of March.
In addition to the HSR
races, the chamber will be
staging the Grand Prix Ball in
cooperation with the Sebring
International Raceway
Museum and will have its
annual Ride the Racetrack
event on the Sunday before

Traffic team, Healthy Start out of safety seats


By PHIL ATTNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Right now,,
child passenger safety techni-
cians have no seats.
Maryanne Higgins and Millie
Martin, both with Highlands
County Healthy Start, said they
have asked The Florida
Department of Transportation
several times for seats to use at
child passenger safety seat
checks for the last six months,
and still have none. Martin said
the Highlands County Health
Department program has had to
borrow from other local pro-
grams for the past year.
Without those seats, she has
trouble helping low-income
families who arrive at seat fit-


ting events with old, recalled,
damaged or undersized seats for
their children who need them.
Without the seats, they face
citations for not having children
properly seated, or worse,
injury to the child in a wreck.
Timing
Part of the problem comes
from timing, said Renee LaDue,
Community Traffic Safety
Team coordinator. When grants
are awarded, the agency has to
collect the child safety seats
within a certain amount of time
or must wait until the next half
of the budget year. Healthy
Start had a grant for 300 seats
last year.
Higgins said the delivery of
the seats ran late because of


friction between the state and
the seat manufacturer, then the
hurricanes hit last August and
September. By then, a new fis-
cal year had started and she was
told she'd have to wait.
Sharing
She's been waiting and still
has no new seats. Sebring
Police Officer Larry Carmody,
a trained child passenger safety
technician, has supplied seats
with some from the Sebring
Police Department, but that has
only been a stop gap.
At Wednesday's Traffic
Safety Team meeting, Avon
Park Police Chief Frank
Mercurio pledged to share seats
at his office with Healthy Start.
Meanwhile, the team approved


spending $2,000 out of its
account to pay for 50 more
seats.
Higgins said that will proba-
bly last three months. She has a
backlog of people needing seats
for their kids. In addition, the
Traffic Safety Team will have a
safety seat check up from 10
a.m. until noon Saturday, Feb.
19, at the Redlands Christian
Migrant Association at 541 E.
Interlake Boulevard, Lake
Placid.
Some seats will probably be
given out there.
Playing
, One solution is the annual 12
Hole of Sebring Golf
Tournament, on Saturday,
March 12, the weekend before


the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring race. Held at the Spring
Lake Golf Resort, it's a regular
18-hole course where six holes'
scores get randomly eliminated.
Right now, LaDue is trying to
secure hole sponsors and prize
items to help the fund-raiser,
which raised $2,000 last year
for child safety seats, technician
training and educational sup-
plies.
Admission is $50 per person,
$30 for resort social members
and $20 for resort full members
and villa guests. Sign up is at
the Spring Lake Pro Shop at
100 Clubhouse Lane, or golfers
may call in their team at 655-
1276 or fax in their entry to
655-0008.

SEBRING For almost
four years Debra Elliott has
been the coordinator of the
Highlands County School
Board's Department of Human
Resources and Staff
Development. Feb. 1 she
stepped down from that post
and moved over to the
Heartland Education
Consortium where she will
serve in the same capacity.
SInstead of reporting to one
superintendent and one school
board, she will now be working
for the elected officials in six
counties Highlands, DeSoto,
Glades, Hardee, Hendry, and
Okeechobee.
By working together through
the HEC, these smaller counties
gain more funding and clout in
dealing with the state legisla-
ture and department of educa-


fingerprinting every school
board employee as the result of
a new mandate from Tallahas-
see, and in the next two to three
months, standards for school
principals will be changed, so
the district will have to adapt.
In addition to hiring new
employees, the department is
also responsible for staff devel-
opment, for instance, providing
leadership training of adminis-
tration personnel and conduct-
ing the three-hour new substi-
tute workshop.
Because of her varied educa-
tional experience, Elliott was
able to bring an in-depth practi-
cal view point to the job. This
was especially useful in devel-
oping programs as she under-
stood a school's needs from
.personal experience.

Toddler wanders into pool


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Early Thursday afternoon, a
beautiful, breezy, sunshiny day, 2-year-old Bo
Alverez slipped away from his home on
Lakeview Drive near Veteran's Beach, and
walked down to a neighbor's house two doors
away.
There, according to police, he got by an orange
temporary construction fence, probably through
a small gated opening which had been left open,
and into the pool area, where he ended up in the
water. He was found by Margaret Lype, a, neigh-
bor who had seen him wandering in her yard, lost
sight of him, had become worried and gone look-
ing.
Taken from the water he was unconscious and
unresponsive.
A crowd of 15 to 20 people from Veteran's
Beach had gathered at the pool side, as the cries
for help went out.

from New Orleans, were among the first

Emergency vehicles arrived and the child was
taken to Highlands Regional Hospital. His moth-

As pieced together, the tale is cautionary.
Alverez's baby sitter, Hermelinda Perez was

She returned to firid them gone, and immediately
began a search of the house and yard.
Convinced the children were in or immediate-

until a partially opened sliding glass door, and a

yards. It was then she saw Lype, two houses

Shearer

charged with

aggravated

assault
AVON PARK At 9:31
p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, Jason
Bradley Shearer, 26, of Avon
Park, arrived at the home of a
23-year-old woman he knows
and knocked on the door.
She refused to open the
door, so he allegedly broke
out the window next to the
door. She got scared and
opened the door.
According to an Avon Park
Police Department arrest
report, when he came in, he
started arguing with her. At
one point, he allegedly
grabbed a steak knife and
threatened to stab her if she
moved from the sofa. This
happened while the woman
was holding one of her chil-
dren and the other was sitting
next to her.
Avon Park police arrested
Shearer that night and
charged him with aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon
- domestic violence. No bail
was set.

Rosselle

charged with

contraband
SEBRING A Sebring
man who turned himself in to
authorities to serve a sentence
has gained extra charges from
bringing drugs into the
Highlands County Jail.
At 8:05 a.m. Thursday,
Feb. 10, Shaun Richard
Rosselle, 20, of Sebring,
arrived at the jail booking
area and was searched. He.
apparently had three pills hid-
den in his waistband. Using a
medical desk reference,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies identified the pills as
Alprazolam, a generic from
of Xanax.'Rosselle could not
give deputies a prescription
order for the pills;'and said he
got them from his mother and
friends.
Deputies charged him with
introducing contraband into a
county jail, possession of a
prescription drug without a
prescription, possession of
Alprazolam, with bail set at
$2,500. However, he is on no
bond for the sentence.

Day charged

with crack,

battery
SEBRING When
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies stopped a young
woman and warned her about
not having a light on her


bicycle, they ended up arrest-
ing her on drug charges and
violation of probation.
In the midst of the arrest,
she struggled, and deputies
charged her with battery on
an officer.
Just before 4 a.m.
Wednesday, Feb. 9, deputies
stopped Car Maria Day, 19,
of Sebring, at the corer of
Highlander Road and DeSoto
Road in Sebring. She was
allegedly riding a bicycle on a
public right of way without a
light.
After deputies gave her
back her identification card,
they asked if she had any-
thing on:her person that she
shouldn't have, such as drugs
or weapons. She said, "No,"
but gave consent for them to
search her.
In her left, front pants
pocket, inside a white plastic
contact lens case, they found
an off-white rock-like sub-
stance.
After they found it, she
allegedly became combative
and attempted to hit them.
She resisted arrest by kicking
both of the deputies, arrest
reports said, as well as
scratching one and biting the
other on the hand.
The deputies did get
scratched and one had bite
marks. To subdue her, they
used one-second bursts of
chemical spray in her face,
twice. Emergency Medical
Services responded and
decontaminated her. She
refused.further treatment.
The suspected crack
cocaine field-tested positive,
reports said.
Day was charged with pos-
session of crack cocaine,
resisting an officer with vio-
lence, and two counts of bat-
Stery on a law enforcement
officer. Bail was set at
$4,000, but she also had three
violations of a 36-month pro-
bation, that began on Feb. 3,
2005, in regard to a case of
forgery and criminal use of
personal identification iinfo6
nation.

Blocker

charged with

burglaries
SEBRING A man
charged last month with
seven burglaries in Lake
Placid is now facing charges
in two more burglaries.
Quinton Donnell Blocker,
21, of Lake Placid, has been
charged with two counts each
of burglary and grand theft in
connection with the Nov. 19
burglaries of the El Rincon
Store and the Dollar Store in
Lake Placid. Bail has been set
at $4,000.
At approximately 3 a.m.,
Nov. 19, a Lake Placid police


DowdV~7iiitI/eXo '
2605 Banveiew St. Sebriiiq, FL 33870
863-385-1546


officer went to investigate a
burglar alarm at the El
Rincon Store in Lake Placid.
The front door had been bust-
ed out. The burglars had
stolen the cash register and
broken several of the shelves
in the store.
A video-tape surveillance
system at a neighboring store
recorded two black males
walking toward the store with
a piece of white cloth materi-
al. Later, in a video tape from
the El Rincon Store, the two
were seen wearing the materi-
al over their heads in an
attempt at disguising them-
selves.
The video showed the front
door being busted out and
both of them inside the store,
as well as one of them carry-
ing the cash register out of
the store.
During the investigation,
the officer discovered that the
Dollar Store next door also
had been burglarized. The
burglars had searched for
valuables, but had only taken
socks.
On Nov. 30, the officer
questioned Blocker while he
was being arrested on other
burglary charges. He took the
officer to a wooded location
and showed him the cash reg-
ister. He said he was there at
the burglaries with two other
suspects, but didn't go inside.
Later, he said he did go inside
the Dollar Store when he said
the other two were in the
store too long.

Centers plea for
blood donations
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Join Florida's
Blood Centers- Highlands and
Cohan Radio group for the
annual RU MY TYPE blood
drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Valentine's Day, Monday, at
the branch, 6550 U.S. 27.
The first 50 donors will
receive a rose from Sebring
Florist. All donors will be reg-
istered to win a $25 Lakeshore
Mall gift certificate as well as
register for the donor of the
month. There will be random
drawings throughout the day
from Bill Jarrett Ford,
Terranovus, Avon Park Noon
Rotary Legends Challenge,
Highlands County Fair
Association, Sebring Ford and
Dr. Geldart and Cooper at Care
Now.
Supplies of 0- and A- blood
types have fallen critically low.
Blood supplies must be replen-
ished immediately to avert any
shortages at local hospitals.
Due to higher usages at local
medical facilities and lower
than expected donor participa-
tion, the "critical appeal" for
volunteer blood donors issued
last week has been reissued and
will remain in effect until sup-
plies are replenished.
"Reserve inventories have
fallen to levels not seen since
the Christmas holidays and
there is an immediate need for
donors having blood types of
0- and A-. Unless supplies are
replenished immediately, hos-
pitals in the area could quickly
face shortages," stated Deah
Spires, donor development
coordinator for Florida's Blood
Centers Highlands County
Division.
This time of year the blood
center normally has a wonder-
ful turnout of donors, but this
year has been different. The
blood center was down the
month of January by 400
donors from 2003.
"The fact is, blood centers
throughout our region ... and
nationally as well are facing
the same potential shortages..
We can normally seek help
from our counter-parts in other ,
locations, but because the need
is so wide spread; the only way
to prevent shortages here in our
community is by getting more
donors involved.
Unfortunately, supplies have
been so low for so long our
appeals have not garnered nor-
mal response. Simply put -
without blood donors ... hospi-
tals can't operate!"
To donate blood, you must
be in good health, weigh a min-
imum of 110 pounds, and be 17
years of age or older. There is
no upper age limit for donors
meeting all other eligibility
requirements. As a benefit to
the donor, a mini health check,
which includes evaluations of
blood pressure, iron level and
cholesterol, is performed to
help the donor maintain his or
her good health.


Now, if she said she wanted

an engagement truck

you wouldn't hesitate

Well, to her, it sort of is! She goes all over town
with it, shows it off to her friends, hauls stuff
with it ...! And it's a lot cheaper than a truck!

A look back at a legend we'll miss you Coach Franza


FRANZA
Continued from 1A
district titles and take the Devils
to the state championship game
in 1966, but he said the high-
light of his career came in 1956
.when he was chosen by coaches
from around the state to lead the
South Florida All-Star Team.
The South lost to the North,
18-12, at the University of
Florida, but Franza still looked
back on the experience with
fond memories.
"Even though we lost, it was
still great," he said in 1999. "To
be selected by the other coaches
felt like you've accomplished a
lot. To have your peers select
you for that kind of honor is
some kind of feeling."
He retired from coaching in
1972 with a 133-71-9 record,
becoming dean of students at
APHS a year later and retired
from education in 1980 after 31
years, but later won a spot on
the school board and served two
terms.
In his retirement, Franza
jumped fully into the things he
loved: hunting, fishing, golfing,
woodcarving and music. He
didn't start playing the guitar
until just before his retirement,
but picked it up well enough to
play with the Highlands County
Bluegrass Band for close to a
decade.
"He got to where he could
play a little bit and he sure
enjoyed it," Joe Jr. said.
"Anything he got into he went
full blast. He'd get into (wood)
carving, he'd have to go get all
the right carving tools and when
he got into playing guitar, he
had to go get two or three gui-
tars. He couldn't settle for one."
Music wasn't the only thing
in which Franza was a late
bloomer. He also turned out to
be pretty good at golf, -and in
April of last year shot a best-
ever round of 74 at the age
of 79.
"It was just one of those days
that don't happen very often,
and then you're disappointed
the next time you play because
you don't do the same thing,"
he said al the time. "Itjust felt
like that club was a part of me.
I didn't hit any bad shots to get
me in trouble."
As a result of all of his years
in athletics and education,
Franza influenced countless
lives, and a lot of those he
touched came back to see him
at the celebration of his 80th
birthday on Jan. 29.
Joe Jr. said his father had
been in the hospital with heart
problems shortly before the
party and his main concern was
recovering in time to make it to
the event.
"I told him, 'Dad, we can call
off the party and have it in a few
weeks when you start feeling
better,' and he said, 'No, we're
not calling the party off. I'll be

there.'
"And he was. He enjoyed it
greatly. That was real special to
him."
One of the people at the party
was Ronnie Jackson, who said
he learned a lot from Franza in
the early years of what turned
out to be a Hall-of-Fame coach-
ing career with the Avon Park
baseball program.
"My first few years up here
.he told me hetaught-me all he
knew and he told me I was a
pretty fast learner because I
taught him a few things, too,"
Jackson said. "It was a great
honor to work under him. He
was a great mentor to me. The
few years he was here while I
was here, he let me coach and
gave me advice and kind of let
me go on my own, but he cer-
tainly helped me in my coach-
ing career."
The huge turnout at his birth-
day party wasn't a surprise to
Jackson.
"That was an indication of
the kind of person he was, the
tribute they paid to him and
how all the players thought of
him as more of a father figure.
To all of the kids and coaches,

"A tempest in a teapot" is the
way Judge Sewlyn Ives charac-
terized the discussion of the
special liquor law for
Highlands county. Making no
apologies for having drawn up
a "suggested form" for the bill,


'. 7 ..-7

Judge Ives stated that he did so
by request. Judge Ives and
Sheriff Schumacher both stated
that there was no intention of
prosecuting "pint bottle cases,"
but that an effort was made to
get a law that would allow law
enforcement officers to search
for liquor, where they had rea-
son to believe that quantities of
liquor were being stored for
sale.
Sheriff Schumacher pointed
out the fact that until the repeal
of prohibition, the county had
been under a law prohibiting
the possession of liquor, but in
no case had he ever arrested
anybody for possessing a small
quantity for their own use, and
had no idea of doing so now.
"I have been criticized for
not stopping the sale of liquor
by bootleggers in the county,"
he said. "Under present laws it
is no violation to possess any
quantity of liquor in this coun-
ty. If I saw a truck load going
down the street, I would be
powerless to stop it. I can make
arrests only when I or my
deputies see the actual sale of
the liquor. This evidence is
hard to get. I am not trying to
dictate, but the people of this
county have voted for a dry
county, and I expect to main-
tain respect for 'the law. If the
majority of the people want a
wet county, that is for them to
say by their vote at the polls.
Until such time, I have no
choice in the matter, but to
enforce the law to the best of
my ability," he said.

SEBRING The H-ighlands
County Grape Growers
Association will get together
Monday evening at Homer's
Restaurant at the Sebring
Square Shopping Plaza, but
group members are hoping a lot
of non-members will show up
as well.
They are looking for new
people interested in becoming a
grape grower, wine maker or
both.
Bob Paulish, president of the
Florida Grape Growers
Association, has been invited to
be the keynote speaker for the
event.
"We're trying to make the
public aware that Florida does
grow grapes and we make
excellent wine," Paulish said.
He spoke in between ses-
sions of the winemaking com-
petition at the Florida State Fair
in Tampa.
Among other things, Paulish
will cover the ins and outs of
grape growing and harvesting.
including information on finan-
cial support from the state to
begin a vineyard, how to create
a vineyard, associated costs,
what it takes to maintain a vine-
yard, harvesting and pruning.
"It will be a talk for those
interested in getting into grapes
from a business to a hobbyist
viewpoint," Jerry Million said.

.Million is one of the resi-
dents who originally organized
the HCGGA in 1997.
Paulish, formerly a computer
programming expert, has been
growing grapes for the past
eight years. Currently he has 10
acres of wine grapes, which are
mechanically harvested with
his own machine.
"I grow the Nobles and the
Carlos but other people in the
state grow hybrid bunch
grapes," he said.
The harvester can pick 20
tons of grapes in a seven hour
work day. Presently, he sells his
grapes mainly to Lakeridge
Winery in Clermont.
Paulish is hoping that
Highlands will gain additional
muscadine grape acreage that
then could be harvested on a
contract basis.
There already are several
grape growing operations in
Highlands County including
The Grapes of Kath owned by
Kathy and Roger Giller,

Wednesday:


No fueling: Skip breakfast at


Food is the fuel that keeps people going
from minute to minute. So, as everyone
would expect, eating habits have a major
impact on energy levels.
It all starts with breakfast. Experts say
that skipping breakfast shortchanges a per-
son's body. After all, a person would have
just gone six or more hours without food, so
their reserves are low.
Without breakfast, their performance in
the morning will suffer, whether they are
off to work, caring for children or doing
chores. Skipping breakfast also makes it
harder to avoid overeating during a mid-
morning break or at lunch.
Below, some common objections .to
Breakfast and ways to overcome them.


"It's so hectic during the morning at our
house. I never have time."
Get things ready the night before. Set
the table. Set out whatever you'll need to
prepare the meal, like a small saucepan for
oatmeal.
Get up 15 minutes earlier so you're
not so rushed.
"Everybody wants something different.
It's a big chore."
Decide on one offering per day and
stick to it. Anybody who wants a variation
has to make his/her own.
Vary the menus each day so it doesn't
get boring. You could make a batch of oat-
meal one day and serve cold cereal the next.
"I'm'not hungry early in the day."

Start with something light like a nutri-

marmalade.
Your body will gradually adjust to
having an early meal. Give yourself time to
adapt.
Extend breakfast by taking along a
portion of it (such as a carton of yogurt or
piece of fruit) to eat an hour or so later.

He referred to art as "a
growth industry," telling the
crowd there are a myriad of
opportunities for all sectors of
the community to get involved
with the project.
Jim Bible, deputy superin-
tendent of the Highlands
County Schools, gave an update
on the far reaching curriculum
in the arts currently available at
different facilities.
He said although the empha-
sis on the arts generally comes
at the middle and high school
levels, some elementary facili-
ties have art as an emphasis as
well.
Bible discussed the fine arts
and performing arts that are
available, noting the music
classes both in choral and
instrument-based music.
"Art education is alive and
well in all of our schools,"
Bible said.
He told art league members
that from the school system's
vantage point providing a
venue wher&sfUdeits could dtW
play their talents could be orne
of the most useful cooperative
efforts between the art league
and the schools.

SEBRING The rumor has

year. It involves purported
plans by retail giant Wal-Mart
to build.a brand new facility off
U.S. 27 somewhere near the
intersection of U.S. 98 and
State Road 66.
Whether it is a larger Wal-
Mart store or a Wal-Mart distri-
bution center and exactly what
would happen to the current
retail outlet depends on who is
telling the story.
However, Wal-Mart officials
say it's all news to them.
"Currently we have no spe-

going to do anything," said

it's very possible that if there

The rumor has been almost
as widespread, although not as
longstanding, as the notion that
the Six Flags amusement park

looking to buy land off U.S. 98

Among the retirees were Ian
and June Hay. Hay served for
13 years in Nigeria, but by the
time of his retirement was the
director of SIM.
He spoke to the students in
the Gbagyi language while his
wife translated what he said
into English. He spoke as if
addressing a congregation of
Nigerians, telling the story of a
man tasting sugar for the first
time, and how being a mission-
ary was to bring a taste of
Christ to those who had never
heard of him.
Del and Lois Voth also spoke
to the students. They too served
in Nigeria, he as an accountant,
she as a housemother and host-
ess, working with new arrivals
in one post, and as the manager
of the mission's conference

retired, but manage the SIM's

down the road, but as of right
now we do not have any plans
to construct anything in
Sebring," Brewer said.
He said that Sebring, like any
other growth area in the county,
is constantly being re-evaluat-
ed.
"I'm sure there are people
there who would like for us to
do that," he said. "But we
absolutely do not have anything
approved to do anything in
Sebring/Highlands and even if
we did it would take years."

The average life span in
Africa is 52 years, so while she
remembered much of the lan-

knew people she'd known, it
was rare to meet someone from

was an emotional moment.

TOFFIAN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
ChristopherTuffley

Rub a dub dub -
there's a Pacifica
in that tub
I enjoyed detailing cars at
Wells Motor Co., even though
my feet got wet, and by the
time I got home my toes
looked like prunes and felt like
cracked rubber.
It was fun working with
Tom Welsh, head detailer
though, and he taught me a lot.
I got immediate satisfaction
when I stood back, after three
hours, and surveyed the results
of my hard labor. I had helped
prepare a brand new Pacifica
for customer inspection. That
car shimmered and shone; in
fact, for the very first time
(I'm the kind of guy who
thinks of his car as mere trans-
portation), I saw a car as sexy,
and an object to be desired.
More about that in a minute.
The job, it turns out, is
made for picky perfectionists.
Welsh uses a 14-step process
to guarantee it. This meant I
was working a series of shorter
tasks: Wetting, cleaning, dry-
ing, protecting.
The job has a rhythm that
made time go by in a pleasant.
way, and working on a basical-
ly clean car, my work was
actually easy, even though the
Pacifica is tall, and the roof is
hard to reach.
Of course, the job also has a
pace. And if the truth were
told, taking three hours to
detail one car would not put
me on the short list for a call

Working hard to



get a great finish


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Tom Walsh, head
detailer at Wells Motor Co., finds that
the first impression he makes on cus-
tomers is a lasting one.
'I love this job," Welsh said. "I love it.
No two days are exactly the. same.
Seeing a car for the first time is like
meeting a person for the first time, it's a
first impression a $30,000 first impres-
sion. I have a lot of responsibility; I have
to be sure nothing is wrong. And I get to
drive $80,000 Dodge Vipers. I wouldn't
trade it for anything."
Welsh's day begins as he plans ahead.
He needs to know if new cars are to be
delivered by carrier, if there are any cars
to picked up by customers that day, or if
there are used car trade-ins which might
require extra work to prepare. He has to
check on the cars in the lot on a regular
basis, and pressure clean them once a
week, and he cleans, all loaners 'nd


demonstration models.
When cars arrive from the manufac-
turer he has to sign for them, and then
has to thoroughly inspect each one,
checking for dents, dings, chipping and
tears in the seats. This is very important,
*as the dealer only has 24 hours to find
and report any damage done en route.
After that, the manufacturer is no longer
liable, and the dealer assumes the cost of
repair or replacement.
Vehicles which arrive from the manu-
facturer are far from clean. Dust, mud,
salt grit from the north, and bird drop-
pings are common. This means every
new car not only goes through several
rigorous inspections, but is cleaned
inside and out as well.
Welsh uses a 14-step process, which
includes several cleaning steps and
much rinsing, but also the application of
something called Magic Clay, a product
Welsh called his secretingredient.
Magic Clay looks and feels like a stiff

form of Play Dough, and handles about
the same. Spray Body Shine (a light wax
product) on a small area, and wipe it
with the clay bar. It removes all the
infinitesimal sand and dust, and the out-
come is amazing; the difference between
silk and muslin.
Welsh truly loves cars and treats a
used Neon with the same respect he
treats a new Chrysler Cross Fire.
He'll lay on the roof of; a Dodge Ram
4x4 when it's the only way he can reach
to clean it, and spend an afternoon pick-
ing dog hair out of a carpet.
"You do % ha.t ou have to do to get it
clean," he said.


Recently, he and his coworker,
Ulysses Taylor, faced a challenge of
preparing cars, which had been buffeted
by the recent blizzards, and arrived very
dirty. Then there was the day when 26
cars arrived all at once.
"When it gets busy, it's busy." Welsh
said, but he's not complaining.
Like many occupations, detailing
pays more for experience, and starting
wages usually begin with the minimum
wage.
Wells Motor Co. is at 1600 U.S. 27 S.,
Avon Park. The telephone number is
453-6644.

The Pier Group enjoys selling hometown atmosphere


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Broker-owner
Bob D'Arinzo opened for busi-
ness in 1999 in Lake Worth.
Now six years and 30 agents
later, he's opened a branch
office in historic Sebring, 122
South Commerce Ave.
"He bought a home on Lake
Istokpoga in 2000, and spent
weekends enjoying everything
Highlands County has to offer
'from fishing to festivals,' "
said his office coordinator
Eileen Vinsand.
'"This building was once a
home, and a restaurant. Bob has
completely renovated it. It's a

two golden retrievers, two black
lab-great Dane mix, a pit bull
mix, and then there's a yellow
dog which has a purple tongue.
Obviously we bought a house
out in the country," she said.
The other agents are Marie
MacDonnell and Lisa Bond -
who are dedicated to accom-
plishing their customers' home-
buying goals and establishing
long-term relationships. They
listen to your needs and desires
in order to find your dream
home; or they'll get your home
sold for top dollar and in a time-
ly manner. And if a person's
moving to this area, they collect
the information you need in
order to make the transition as
smooth as possible.
"We're growing quicker than
anticipated," Vinsand said.
"And of course we all believe in

back, if I were doing this for a
living. In fact, Welsh has
detailed as many as 19 cars in
a day (that's two in an hour).
After an hour I was still vacu-
uming, and hadn't even gotten
one wet.
I'm not knocking myself,
because there's a lot more to
detailing than I had ever
guessed.
In the first place, it's well
named. Detailing is an occupa-
tion of ... well ... details.
For example, I knew this
was a job for obsessive com-
pulsives (I fit right in), when
Welsh handed me a toothbrush
saying, "This may be our most
important tool," and pointed to
the wheel rims.
"Detailing isn't hard," he
went on, "but you have to be
methodical. Have a list, and go
with it. Don't miss anything."
Detailing is another of those
jobs that requires physical.

community involvement. We're
ambassadors to the chamber of
commerce and members of the
board of Realtors."
Agent Lisa Bond is the proud
mother of Miss Highland
County. "I've been here four
years now, having grown up in
Miami. I remember the first
Time we visited and walked

joints like mine). I had to drag
hoses around, which were large
and heavy. I had to do a lot of
scrubbing with long handled,
soft bristled brushes, which
required a fair amount of mus-
cle. I spent all my time on my
feet, constantly moving, reach-
ing high, bending low, and of
course there was a lot of hand
rubbing, which left my shoul-
der sore (Welsh doesn't use a
powered buffer, too much dan-
ger of damaging the paint).
Back to a car's sensual
pleasures.
New paints and clear coating
products produce a surface
which, with elbow grease, can
become as soft and smooth as
the back of a woman's neck;
feeling it, I had a hard time
pulling my hand away, and like
Narsissus, was mesmerized by
my reflection. There isn't a
more flattering mirror, then a
properly prepared $30,000 sur-
face. What a terrific finish (if
You'll pardon the pun) at the
end of the day.

People aren't out to take advan-
tage' of them. The area has a
friendly, great sense of commu-
nity and of course those wide-
open spaces," Bond said.
"I like that people smile and
ask to assist if you need help,"
Vinsand said. "When I first
arrived, I was lost, and kept cir-
cling 'round and 'round, not

trade-in, and I don't want to
know what that could have
been like. Well all right, here's
a hint think wet animal hair,
territorial cats and hot sun.
Think baked-in aroma, and
ground-in dirt. Think of hard
work, never mind hours, think
days.
Speaking of days, the story's
disaster was not provided by
me, but occurred when a 55
gallon plastic barrel's bottom
fell out as it was being rolled
onto the tailgate of the delivery
truck. In less time than it takes
to tell, all 55 gallons of all-pur-
pose, very slick cleaner had
poured out the back, in a spec-
tacular, iridescent waterfall.
Of course the morning did-
n't pass without my getting
somewhat confused at least
once. At one point I was happi-
ly squirting the car's surface
with stuff out of a spray bottle,
thinking I was working with
Body Shine.
Wrong. Body Shine is pink,
what I was spraying was blue.
"That's window cleaner." said


knowing how to get out of here.
I finally stopped at the chamber
and Sherri pointed out where I
was on the map and helped
calm me down. That really
meant a lot to me."
Bond and Vinsand both agree
that no one wants to live in a
concrete jungle. And they espe-
cially appreciate that the county
commissioners feel that every-
one must all work together in


Welsh, politely not rolling his
eyes.
"Have I hurt the finish?" I
asked, wondering how I was
going to swing the payments if
I'd just bought myself a brand
new Pacifica, or how I'd tell
my publisher the News-Sun
had.
But I got lucky.
"Don't worry, it doesn't
hurt," Welsh said. "Of course,
it doesn't help either," he
added with a grin.
SI just had to do the work all
over again. Tick tock, tick
tock.

LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid Middle School students
returned Feb. 1 from a research
field trip to the Florida
Aquarium in Tampa.
Seventh-graders and a select
few eight-grade agriculture stu-
dents were able to visit the
aquarium courtesy of a grant
from Southwest Florida Water
Management District. The grant
paid for the admission for the
students and a live broadcast of

Bob Paulish set

to speak to

grape growers
SEBRING Bob Paulish,
president of the statewide
Florida Grape Growers
Association, will be the speak-
er at the Thursday meeting of
the Highlands County Grape
Growers.
The meeting will be at
Homer's Smorgasbord at 6
p.m. and those eating at
Homer's will dine at 5 p.m.
Paulish has 10 acres of wine
grapes, which are mechanically
harvested with his own
machine. The harvester can
,pick 20 tons of grapes in a
seven-hour work day.
Presently, he sells his grapes
mainly to Lakeridge Winery in
Clermont. Paulish is hoping
Highlands will have more mus-
cadine grape acreage, which his
machine can harvest on a con-
tract basis.
At the meeting, Paulish will
cover the full gamut of grape
growing and harvesting includ-
ing information on financial
support from the state to begin
a vineyard; how to create a
vineyard and the costs; what it
takes to maintain a vineyard,
harvesting, pruning, etc. It will

years ago I made the decision to change professions. At
that time I researched what was needed to be a Professional Realtor. I
acquired my registered appraiser's license, my mortgage broker's license
and real estate license. These are all important areas of knowledge

I am a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Course, in which I received the Highest Award for Achievement. I
just completed my 3-year term as a Director on the Lake Placid Board of Realtors in Lake Placid, and I am
continuing to actively participate in Board functions that benefit our community. I was invited to join
the Leaders in the prestigious "Leadership of Highlands County Program," in which I graduated in May

sales. I finished in the Top 5 Realtors for Lake Placid. I was the recipient of the Humanitarian Award for
2004, and I was also honored as a nominee for Realtor of the Year.
In my nine years of experience in Real Estate, I have found an understanding of the business and I have
also gotten to know so many of the wonderful people of Highlands County. As a realtor, I have helped
many clients to sell their property or find the home of their dreams. If you are interested in buying or

Dinner helps Palms residents


By KATARA SIMMONS
News-Sun
A large crowd attended this
year's annual Palms Auxiliary
Benevolent/Benefit Dinner.
Thursday evening in Sebring.
"Country Hearts"
was this year's
theme and accord-
ing to the Palms
Marko"ing Director
Janice Roberts,
"The dinner was
oversold. We sold
more tickets than
seats, but were able
to make room for
everyone."
Roberts said the
dinner fund-raiser


has been held for
more than 10 years
and each year it
grows larger. She
thinks of the event
as "A gift of love."
The event took
place to help benefit
The Palms of


op EMU


dentures, hearing aids, eye
glasses and more.
Roberts said this year's large
turn out "makes me feel like the
outside community has a tender
heart for older adults."

Entertain-ment was

The Palms
Auxiliary relies on
the public to volun-

money to support
their non-profit
organization. The

match whatever
ticket sales brought
in for the event.

Super rich and

media in charge

Editor:
The most dangerous thing
that can happen to any nation is
the brain washing by the news
media.
In any war the first thing that
the military has to control is the
news media in its own country
as well as those they are trying
to control in foreign nations.
Case in point: In World War
II, the news media made propa-
ganda films to build up hate
against the Japanese, Germans,
and Italians, which were shown
to the general public and our
young men and women in uni-
form. Many of the hate crimes
were true; many more were
false. The old saying is if you
tell a lie long enough, people
will believe the lie.
Soldiers of every nation are
indoctrinated to kill their ene-
mies by brainwashing. Then
... after.thewar they, are debrieed_
not to kill; in some cases the
debriefing not to kill does not
work and they become a men-
ace to society.
Case in point: The Iraqi war,
where we invaded another's
nation. Based on lies by the
Bush administration and pro-
moted by the news media,
causing the deaths of many of
our young men and women, as
well as many thousands of Iraq
citizens.
The war against Iraq was not
enough for the Bush adminis-
tration, he now has declared
economic war on working
class America. His policies and
those of his father have
destroyed the private pensions,
health care and death benefits
of millions of Americans. He is
now promoting to do away
with 150 programs that he has
not yet disclosed. What he has
disclosed is to give a perma-
nent tax break to the super rich.
The money will be borrowed
from the Social Security Trust
Fund, the very fund he claims
he is trying to save.
The five super rich news
-nedias that stand to receive
many millions from the tax
breaks will promote these lies
365 days a year.
The news media feeds on the
most heinous crimes of war or
peace.
The super rich stand to gain
a windfall if the Social Security
Trust Fund is privatized.
The super rich controlled
news media in these United
States is the most serious threat
to a "Free America."
"The only security of all is in
a free press ... No government
ought to be without censors:
and where the press is free no
one ever will," Thomas
Jefferson.
It is my belief that the last
election process was flawed by
the press being controlled by
the super rich, who had much
to gain by the flawed tax pro-
gram, promoted by the Bush
administration. This flawed tax
system and Bush's other flawed
policies that reward the rich


and punish the working class,
could very well collapse the
financial system of the United
States.
You must remember Bush
Sr. and Bush Jr. have already
destroyed private pensions,
health care, death benefits of
millions of Americans by their
policies and now they are try-
ing to privatize Social Security.
Why would yet another pri-
vatizing policy work? Ask your
mothers and fathers who
worked in the steel mills, Enron
and millions of other American
factories that lost their private
pensions, many even lost their
401ks.
"A sucker is born every sec-
ond, and two to take him or
her."
Don't be scammed by this
administration or by the super
rich controlled press.
Billie E. Jewett
Sebring

True character

is apparent

Editor:
Since the election, the
Democrats have been commit-
ting political suicide. It began
with their vitriolic treatment of
Condoleeza Rice during her
Senate confirmation hearings.
An intelligent, dedicated public
servant with impeccable char-
acter who has proven herself to
be a fine national security
adviser, does not deserve this
kind of treatment.
Shortly thereafter, Ted
Kennedy gave a speech on the
war in Iraq at John Hopkins
School of International Studies.
In this diatribe, he stated'that
the' United States military is
part of the problem, not part of
the solution; that President
Bush misled the nation and led
us into a quagmire; that the
Iraqi elections would probably
lead to greater alienation,
greater escalation and greater
death; that our troops are fan-
ning the flames of conflict; and
that Bush's Iraq policy is a cat-
astrophic failure.
These are but a few of the
comments an errant misleader
of our nation had the gall to
make while we are at war.
These comments do nothing
more than embolden our enemy
and crush the morale of our
brave troops..
Finally, when Bush brought
up the subject of Social
Security during his State of the
Union address, the Democrats
groaned, mumbled and even
yelled. out. This most rude,
childlike, disrespectful behav-
ior has never before occurred
during a State of the Union
address.
The world was able to see
firsthand their true character.
Attacks on honorable leaders
and disrespectful outbursts are
certainly not the ways to win
back the hearts and minds of
the American people.

A story about

Iwo Jima

Editor:
On Feb. 19, 1945, the U.S.
'Marines landed on Iwo Jima -
five days later on the 23rd the
U.S. Marines raised the
American flag on Mt.
Suribachi. James Bradley told
this story about his dad who is
on the statue of the Iwo Jima
memorial.
"There were six 'boys' who
raised the American flag. The
first boy putting the pole in the
ground is Harlan Block. Harlan
was an all state-football player.
Harlan died holding parts of his
own body in his hands. I am
repeating this not to gross you
out but to tell you that there are
generals who stand before this
statue and talk about the glory
of the war. What they are not
saying is that most of the boys
in Iwo Jima were 17, 18 and 19
years old.
"The next boy is Rene
Gagnon from New Hampshire.
If Rene took off his helmet you
would see a picture in the web-
bing of his girlfriend. "Boys"
won the battle of Iwo Jima, not
old men.
"The next guy is Sergeant
Mike Stank. They did call him
the 'old man' because he was
already 24 and he would say
'do as I say and I'll get you
home to your moms.'
"The last guy on his side was
Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from
Arizona. Ira walked off Iwo
Jima. He went to the White
House with his-dad. President
Truman said 'you are a hero.'
He 'replied, "How can I be a
hero when 250 of my buddies
hit the island and only 27 of us
walked off alive.'
"Ira Hayes died face down in
the dirt at age of 32.
"The next guy was Frank
Sously from Hilltop, Ky. He
was a fun-loving hillbilly boy
doing simple pranks. Frank
died at Iwo Jima at the age of
19. The story goes that his
mother's screams were heard
into the night a quarter-mile
away.
"The next guy was John
Bradley from Antigo, Wis., my
dad who was a medic -
who helped over 200 'boys' on
that island. I will always
remember my dad stating to me
'Son, I want you to remember
that the heroes of Iwo Jima are
the boys who did not come
back did not come back.'"
So that's the story of six
boys three who died on Iwo
Jima and three who came back
as national lieroes. Over 7,000
died in the worst battle in the
history of the Marine Corps.
We need to remember that
God created this vast world for
us to live in, freely, but at a
great sacrifice. Let us never
forget the Revolutionary War to
the wars of today. Thank God
and God Bless America.

Legislating

fashion
One of The Learning
Channel shows I tune into from
time to time is "What Not To
Wear."
In this show, two people take
someone whom they deem to
be fashion impaired and after
trashing their current clothes
and even tossing some of them
into a trash can show them how
to buy the right clothes for their
body. The show is a lot more
entertaining than it sounds
here, but I only have so many
words to describe it.
Sometimes I think I could be
a poster child for the show. I
am not the most fashion savvy
person on the planet. Part of
this is due to the fact I work at
home, and Perky the dog really
doesn't have a lot of opinions
about my clothing choices. For
example, he has never told me
my blue fuzzy slippers don't go
with my jeans and t-shirt,
though I bet the pair on "What
Not To Wear" would have plen-
ty to say about that.
Now when I go out to be
seen by the general public, I do
try to make myself a little more
presentable. Sometimes even
that gets sabotaged if I decide
to go through a drive-thru.
Some foods have a tendency to
leak, and it's almost a guaran-
tee that if I'm going some-
where people will see me that a
Sblob of ketchup or a squirt of
taco sauce will decorate my
blouse.
Over the past couple of
weeks I got daring and bought
not one, but two white blouses.
While blouses and I have sad
and short histories and it is a
leap of faith to have two of
them in my closet. If history
repeats itself, they will be fit
only for wearing in the house
behind closed doors in two
months.
There are some things I will
not wear, no matter what fash-
ion dictates. For example, you
will not ever see me in stiletto
heels, no matter how many
times people tell me they will
make me look taller and slim-
mer. For one thing, I have this
thing about pain.. For another,
stiletto heels may make you
look great but if they render
you incapable of walking they
have a limitedpurpose.
Then there is that odd piece
of underwear that is called a.
thong. I have seen these things
and I honestly do not know
how a woman can wear the
thing and be anything close to
comfortable. Some of my lady
friends and I recently discussed
this and we all agreed that it
was something better left
unworn. Besides, if your pants
slipped, think of what would
show!
This brings me to a news
story sent to me by a good
friend who often sends interest-
ing stuff to my inbox. This
news story is about Virginia's
House of Delegates which
passed a bill Tuesday that
authorized fining people $50 if
they displayed their underpants
in a "lewd or indecent manner."
I am not kidding. The bill
was opposed by Delegate
Lionell Sprull Senior, who
called the bill an attack on
young blacks and would punish
their parents. The bill's spon-
sor, Delegate Algie T. Howell,
had said that people were
offended by exposed under-
wear. The bill now goes- to
Virginia's Senate.
Iam not sure this is a race
problem, because I have seen
white young people whose
pants were baggy. My oldest
son John often has baggy pants,
but it's not because he is trying
to make a fashion statement.
It's because he is a toothpick
and pants that are long enough
to cover his legs are often
roomy in the waist.
I'm not sure we should be
telling people what they can or
can't wear. Maybe it would be


(D'


ILetter


better to nominate these fash-
ion impaired youth for the TV
program "What Not To Wear."
Or put together a fund to buy
belts for these kids droopy
drawers. Think about it: the
sight you save may be your
own.

What is the destiny of the GOP


The choice before
the Republican Party
is clear: Does it wish
to be like the New
York Yankees, or the
New England
Patriots?
The Yankees erect-
ed a baseball dynasty
from 1996 to 2000,
and the NFL's Patriots POI
are in the midst of one
now. The Republican NT0
Party, it seems, has
also won contest after LOW'I
contest in recent
years. What we learn by exam-
ining all three, however, is that
there is a right and wrong way
to enjoy and extend success.
The 1994 Contract with
America did the unthinkable for
Republicans it gave them
control of Congress. With only
brief exception in the Senate,
Democrats dominated the peo-
ple's chambers for decades.
Political scientists insisted that
sheer demographics prohibited
the GOP from ever being the
majority party.
They were wrong, and the
rest is history. While their land-
slide majorities were eroded in
the subsequent elections in the
90s, Republicans remained in
control of both houses. Then
George W. Bush won against a
virtual incumbent during peace-
ful and prosperous times, which
was another unthinkable
thought.
Democrats rested assured,
though, because convention
held that the party of the sitting
President always loses
Congressional seats in the first
midterm election after he is
elected.
Bush propelled a GOP
Congressional gain in 2002.


LITICAL
TEBOOK
LL BAKER

Twelve


Then came 2004.
A perceived unpopu-
lar war and lacklus-
ter economy plagued
an allegedly intellec-
tually inferior
incumbent. Yet Bush
won, and the GOP
Cong ressional
advantage increased
still further.
Upon review, this
election was much
more definitive than
a simple 60.000
votes in Ohio.
million more


Americans voted for Bush in
2004 than 2000. Eighty-one
percent of counties voted for
Bush. If that doesn't impress
you because many counties are
rural, consider that 97 of the
1'00 fastest growing counties
also voted for four more years.
Sounds a bit like a political
dynasty, does it not?
When the Yankees were win-
ning World Series after World
Series. they did it with home-
grown talen-.. Heroes like
Bernie Williams, Paul O'Neil,
and Andy Petite started their
careers with the team, played
with heart, and re-established
the Yanks as the pride of the
Majors.
Then somehow the club lost
sight of what it meant to be a
Yankee. and what exactly made
them successful in the first
place. They replaced one home-
town hero after another with
high 'priced free agent merce-
naries. They coveted what the
other teams had, when all they
needed was right where it had
always been in Yankee stadi-
um.
They haven't won a World
Series since, even though they


field All-Stars at eight of nine
positions.
The New England Patriots
just won a third Super Bowl in
the last four years. They work
as a team, swallow their pride,
play for less money, and stick to
the fundamentals that have
established their excellence.
When one player decides he is
bigger than the team, he's given
his walking papers.
I go to such length about
sports because as a fan of the
GOP, I see Republicans acting
much more like Yankees than
Patriots.
We eye attractive free agent,
future presidential candidates
like Rudy Giuliani or even
Arnold Schwarzenegger -
assuming we can get the league
to change its rules for the latter.
An important lesson of 2004 is
that the conservative base still
wins elections. The exact wrong
turn to take now is to the left.
1 see a party flirting with a
new fiscal game plan. It even
seems as if the Democrats have
stolen a page or two from the
playbook. They are the party
talking about a balanced budget
and responsible spending.
The Republican Party has
forgotten its homegrown talents
of opposing excess government
programs and curbing waste,
fraud, and abuse. Calloused by
growing victory, they've grown
too comfortable with their com-
mittee assignments and too
bloated with pork spending.
Government feels like home to
far too many of them. The GOP
is at its best, and truest to its
purpose, when government
feels very foreign.
I understand that we have
added a prescription drug bene-
fit to Medicare, given the


dynasty?
American people needed tax
relief, and are waging a war on
terrorism. It's not the fact that
the budget is unbalanced that
bothers me it's that
Republicans are reluctant to
curb that problem where possi-
ble. A balanced budget is a
wonderful thing, but the actual
goal should be to pursue small-
er government.
President Bush has proposed
cuts to more than 150 wasteful,
outdated, or redundant pro-
grams. That is encouraging
news given a first term record
that was less hostile to spending
than Republicans past.
Unfortunately, Republicans in
Congress are already digging in
to protect their turf. Perhaps
this will be the year that the
president'holds his own party's
feet to the fire, but that remains
to be seen.
Republicans are the winning
team here in Florida, too.
Programs like a multi-million
dollar chiropractic school at
Florida State University get
through because legislators are
too comfortable, while other
budget needs go unmet. The
university didn't ask for it, nor
was there student demand.
Where is the fiscal restraint?
If the principle behind suc-
cess is lost in the spoils of vic-
tory, then a crippling combina-
tion of complacency and arro-
gance will emerge.
True, every dynasty from the
Ming to the Yanks and eventu-
ally even the Patriots will crum-
ble. The question before the
Republicans is do they real-
ly want to do themselves in this
early?

rally past

AVON PARK Brad Crone
did more to help out his team
than previously thought.
Before the first
baseman/designated hitter belt-
ed a game-winning, two-run
homer in the bottom of the
ninth Wednesday against Polk
Community College, South
Florida Community College
had scored exactly six runs in
17'A innings.
After that blast, SFCC plat-
ed 22 in the next 162, innings,
10 of them coming Friday night
in a 10-6 win over Broward
Community College at Panther
Field.
"It's one of those things
where, I think, the game the
other night against Polk was
kind of our first time we (came
back). We learned something a
little bit more about ourselves
then, and learned a little bit
more about ourselves tonight,"
SFCC head coach Rick Hitt
said after Friday's win.
The day before, SFCC put up
10 runs in another blowout win
against the Webber "B" squad.
SFCC only needed one big
inning Friday night to gain the
lead for good.
SO After the'
10 Vikings jumped
out to a 4-1 lead
Broward in the second
inning on three
W singles, ,. three
\sjlk. and u dou-
-b4, the Panthers rallied for
seven runs, batting around in
the bottom of the third.
"That was a good sign," Hitt
said. "We saw the ball well that
inning, we made good moves
on pitches and did a good job
with it."
Dwayne Bailey started the
inning with a single and was
followed by a long double from
third baseman Jesse Litsch.
After a strikeout, Tim Graeser
reached first on a dropped third
strike to score Bailey and
Marcos Causey then laced a
double to chase home Litsch.
SFCC continued the inning
when Josh Welkes walked and
Mike Yates followed with a
bases-loaded double to score
Graeser and Causey for a 5-4
deficit.
Sacrifice flies from Bailey
and Litsch and a single by
Jimmy Miles made it 7-5.
SFCC's lead continued to
grow in the sixth off reliever
David Beasley when Crone
walked and moved to third on
muffed grounder. Welkes then
made it a 9-6 game with an RBI
single.
The Panthers evaded the
final jam they encountered in
the top of the seventh when
reliever Andrew Clark was
called on with runners on first
and second with one out. Two
strikeouts later, SFCC exited
the inning unscathed.
Dan Wolicki tossed 3'/
innings in relief to pick up the
win and Clark's five strikeouts
in 2% innings was good for the
save.

Streaks send all 9 to regional


Finish second in
District 9-1A meet

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKELAND With just
nine wrestlers, Sebring Blue
Streaks knew they faced an
uphill battle in the quest for
their fifth straight district
championship. They almost
made it to the top of that hill.
In the end, however, Lake
Wales' superior numbers
proved to be too much as the
Highlanders finished 23 points
ahead of the Streaks (179-156)
in the District 9-1A meet at
McKeel Academy of
Technology Friday afternoon.
While they didn't bring
home the big trophy, the
Streaks did accomplish their
second goal of advancing all
nine, wrestlers six of them
as district champions to the
Region 3-1A tournament set
for Friday and Saturday at
South Florida Community
College in Avon Park.
"We would have liked to
have won it, but we knew
going in it was going to be
awful hard with nine guys.
Second's not too bad," Sebring
coach Dave Cunningham said.
"We had nine guys and we had
eight guys in the finals. We just

Sebring had a five-point
lead heading into the champi-
onship and consolation final
matches, but the Highlanders
simply had too many wrestlers


still alive.
"We would have had to win
every match and they would
have had to lose some of those
wrestlebacks," Cunningham
said. "We lost two matches that
we would have liked to have
been able to win, but we had


eight in the finals and six

Lady Streaks have high expectations


SCOTT DRESSEUNews-Sun
Maggie Statler will handle the bulk of
the pitching duties for the Lady Blue
Streaks this season.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING Last year's surprise is
this year's expectation.
Sebring (13-12 in 2004) shocked the
rest of District 14-4A with the tourna-
ment title last year, but with seven
starters returning, opponents will have an
eye on the Lady Blue Streaks all year
long.
"We feel real good about this year
coming up. We're excited about getting
the season started," head coach Lee Tolar
said. "Everybody's working good.
They're working hard. They're hIsilinII .
and we don't have any slackers."


Senior pitcher Maggie Statler must be
especially diligent if all goes according
to plan. Tolar-expects to send her out for
the vast majority of the innings, with
only the slight possibility that freshman
Julianne Lind could mature into a second
option by the end of the season.
RIl -i.'e's a very disciplined athlete,"
Tolar said. "She's a good student, a good
person, and I think she can handle the
role."
The right-hander doesn't tax her arm
by relying on her heater.
"She's not an overpowering pitcher,
but she's pretty good with location,"
Tolar said. "She has a dropball, a fastball


and a changeup, and a curveball."
The chief weapon of the defense
behind her is speed, Tolar said, while
Statler's offensive support will come in
variety of ways.
"We run a multiple offense," Tolar
said. "We don't try and stick to one thing.
If something's not .. lkin, we try to
stick to something else.
"We've got the talent. We've got girls
who can hit for power. We've got girls
who are quick, and can use the short
game."

Bass tourney

planned on

Lake June

If you are a serious bass
fisherman and looking for a
little competition, you will
want to mark this down on
your calendar. Several local
and county businesses, includ-
ing the News-Sun, are spon-
soring the Eighth Annual Lake
Placid Chamber of Commerce
Bass Tournament that will be
held this year on beautiful
Lake June.
The tournament is sched-
uled for Sunday, April 10, and
those interested can pick up
entry forms at Lake Placid
Marine and also Central
Florida Yamaha in Lake
Placid. This is a team tourna-
ment and the field will be lim-
ited to the first fifty boats.
Entree fee is $60 per team. An
additional $20 will give the
team a chance at the prize for
largest bass of the day.
Possession will be limited
to five fish. The competition
will start at safe light and
weigh-in will take place in
Lake June Park at 2:30 p.m.
There will be one payback for
every five boats. Last year, 43
boats competed.
The tournament is being
coordinated by Norman Lee, a
professional fisherman. If you
have any questions about the
tourney, you can call him at
the Lake Placid Marina at
465-2335.
Covering 3,500 acres, Lake
June is the second largest lake
in Highlands County. Lying
just west of U.S. 27 in the
Lake Placid area, the lake was
earlier known as Lake Steams,
but its official name is Lake
June-in-Winter. Over time,
locals have dropped part of
the name and it is commonly
called Lake June.
The depth of the lake runs
to about 40 feet. Various types
of vegeta-
tionin
and

this very
pretty
lake sup-
ply the
cover
necessary
OUTDOORS for good
bass and
LLOYD JONES panfish
-produc-
tion.
Many large bass have been
taken from its waters over the
years.
I am far from being a pro
fisherman, but I have caught
largemouths up to 10 pounds
in Lake June. I recently gave a
grandson a mounted bass I
caught while fishing Lake
June nearly 10 years ago. He
couldn't bear to see a 10-
pound mounted bass tossed
away.
I will keep you posted on
any updatesfor this tourna-
ment, which should prove to
be an exceptionally good one.
On another note, fibbing
when telling about the big one
that got away is just a way of
life among most fishermen,
but a fellow up in Lake
County went a little too far.
While participating in a
Lake County bass fishing
tournament, the winning
angler, who we will call John
to save him any more embar-
rassment, caught an 8-pound,
6-ounce bass and threw it into
the live well of his boat. He
submitted it for judging more
than six hours later.
While tournament officials
didn't question the entry at the
scene, the director said it
looked pale and flaccid and,
unlike most freshly dead
catches, was stiff from rigor
mortis. The fish also looked
too fat for its length. Later, the
director gutted the bass in his
kitchen and found three 8-
ounce weights in its stomach.
That must have been a hun-


gry bass to stomach all that
lead.
Well, it seems that after
nearly two years, John admit-
ted he was guilty of stuffing
the bass. He was sentenced to
nine months of court supervi-
sion,-during which time he
was to stay clear of all fishing
contests. He was also stripped
of his $1,915.20 prize, which
was almost enough to cover
his $2,000 bail.

Streaks undefeated,

Devils lost twice

BY JOHN RrrTER
News-Sun Correspondent
In most cases, it's not too
hard to accept that a year on
junior varsity would go unno-
ticed and almost disregarded.
Most of the time, those
involved are resigned to the fact
early on that one more step up
is where the publicity is. But
every so often there comes one
very good team whose play
demands the attention they
never get. This basketball sea-
son, two Highlands County jun-
ior varsity teams with only
two losses between them -
slipped under the radar.
Avon Park's boys finished
16-2 after a loss to powerful
Pendleton Academy on
Thursday, while Sebring's girls,
who posted a 66-0 shutout
against Riverdale this year,
went 20-0 this season.
"Absolutely, this is the best
team I've ever coached,"
Sebring coach Terry Quarles
said. "We've got excellent
guards and very tall post play-
ers, especially for a JV team.
Normally, I would have one or
the other that are above average
and could play on varsity, and
this year I'm fortunate."
She then grinned and added,
"My team could play on varsi-
ty."
Avon Park coach Levon
Stukes said he also had a talent-
ed group.
"These guys, they put their
focus on what we want them to
do in practice. When we get
into the game we try to teach
them that the key to winning is
playing your game and not
worrying about what the refs
call."
"Last year I had a small but
quick team," Stukes said. "But
this year we changed up and
had size and quickness, so,
yeah, I thought we could do the
same things if not better."
During the 12th game,
Stukes faced a problem when
his leading scorer was removed
from the team due to grade
problems. The Devils then won
by 15.
Stukes, who has been the
coach of the JV Devils on and
off, for four years, said for his
squad the hardest task, other
than Thursday's game against
Pendleton, came during the
15th game in the form of
Haines City, the other team that
beat them. The Devils had

merchant and a contact hitter
from both sides of the plate.
New left fielder Jeanna Hanes,
who joins Statler as one of two
seniors on the team, provides a
similar threat to Gose in the No.
2 hole.
Freshman switch-hitter
Kayla Dunn takes over at third
base and is set to bat third,
while sophomore Jessica
Cooley will use her strong arm
behind the plate and powerful
bat in the cleanup hole.
Fellow sophomore Kristen
Salinder will hit behind Cooley,


already beaten the Hornets, 72-
51, in the third game of the sea-
son, but traveling north turned
out to be a different story.
"They were a lot bigger than
we were," Stukes pointed out.
"Even though we are larger this
year, they were also large. So
the second time we played
them, they got right on us."
The Lady Streaks' toughest
test came a lot earlier.
When the season-opener at
Avon Park arrived for Sebring ,
only five of Quarles' players
had seen a basketball game.
"The toughest game was
against Avon Park," said
Quarles, who nearly retired at
the conclusion of the 2003-04
season but. was persuaded to
return by varsity coach Robert
Sampson. "We beat them by
three points. We were all new.
Two of my players, that was the
very first time they had even
seen a basketball game. They
didn't know to check in. I
mean, we didn't even know the
rules. We were still learning
that the line is out of bounds, so
to get out of the first game in
Avon Park's gym with a win
was something else."
The highlight of Sebring's
season wasn't much of a deci-
sion for Quarles. Shutting out a
team during basketball season
is good.
"That was a good one
because varsity had a shutout
the week before against
DeSoto. And they all said that
doesn't happen in basketball
and then we turned around and
we had one, too. So that really
made it special for these peo-
ple."
A handful of players of both
squads have filled varsity roles
after their great seasons.
"Last season I sent up quite a
few of my guys. This year, I'll
be able to send up at least half,"
Stukes said. "That's usually a
goal of mine at the beginning of
the season."
Both coaches agreed that this
year was probably their finest
hour, whether anyone knew it
or not.
"They've got a lot of drive,"
Stukes said of his team. "We
don't give up. These guys
sucked it up and do what it
takes to win."
"What makes it so special is
out of 10 girls, five of them
have played basketball before,"
Quarles said. "One had seen a
basketball game and three oth-
ers had never seen a basketball
game at all. I kept saying,
'Trust me, we'll be all right.' "


and returns as an defensive
anchor at short.
SReceiving Salinder's throws
at first will be a new first base-
man, sophomore Priya Patel,
whom Tolar noted for her
scrappiness.
Second base will be the
domain of switch-hitting junior
varsity promotion Lacie White,
as well as defensive-minded
utility player Chastity Godfrey.
A number of players, includ-
ing Chelsea Vickers, Chelsie
Davis and Kendall Carson,
could see action in right field.
"It'll be on a rotating basis,"
Tolar said. "We haven't got any
solidified personnel there yet."

Middle school

all-stars put

on a show
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING The future of Heartland high
school basketball was on display Friday night.
The top players from Avon Park, Lake Placid
and Hardee middle schools swept their counter-
parts from Sebring, Hill-Gustat and DeSoto in
both boys and girls action in the first Allstate
"Good Hands" Middle School Basketball All-
Star Game at Sebring High School.
The core players from the Red Devils and
Lady Red Devils, both of whom went unbeaten,
lifted their respective teams to a 58-38 victory in
the boys game and a 36-31 win in the girls con-
test.
"It's real easy,"' Hardee head coach Carl
Coleman said of coaching the Avon Park players.
"You just tell them 'There's the hole, put it in.'
They're natural."
'They didn't complain or anything if I took
them out. They were really just nice girls to have
on the team," said Hardee girls head coach Amy
Whilden, who got to coach the top Lady Red
Devils. "And they understood what I was telling
them, which was even better."
While Lake Placid's Avery Young led all scor-
ers in the boys game with 14 points, athletic Red
Devil Virgil Cooper took home MVP honors with
his 13-point effort. Avon Park's Beonca Godfrey,
who scored nine and gave her team the lead for
good on a 3-pointer with 2:45 to go, was the girls
MVP.
"She surprised me, because she did not stand
out as much when they played us, and tonight,
she just made clutch shots," Whilden said. "She
is just a really good player."
While the girls game was in doubt until the last
minute, the Avon Park-Lake Placid-Hardee boys
never trailed after jumping out to an 18-4 lead.
"That team will be real good for a few years,"
Coleman said of Avon Park. "They will be a team
to be reckoned with, that's for sure."
Game organizer John Snyder, the boys head
coach at Hill-Gustat, agrees that the Red Devils
could soon join the elite.
'They're going to have a run at the state cham-
'i pion'hip in about two years, beyond a reasonable
doubt," he said.
Snyder also tipped his hat to the girls program,
and deemed Friday's event a success. Roughly
$400 was raised for Asian tsunami relief efforts,
and participants relished the opportunity for a
showcase, Snyder said.
"They were just unbelievably happy playing,"
he said. "The coaches had a tremendous time."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Loves me,

loves me not
We were young girls sit-
ting in a field of daisies
plucking off petals as we
chanted, "Loves me, loves
me not!" Two cousins with
dreamy, romantic inklings
just beginning to bud, we
romanticized Valentine's
Day each longing for her
very own Prince Charming.
Though it was a silly pas-
time that brought delight or
sadness depending on the
petals of the flower, the
"loves me, loves me not"
part can have validity if put
to the right test, the right
standard.
Too often, we really don't
know what love is. We take
our cues from romantic
books, Hollywood movies
and our own feelings. Then
when it falls apart, we are
left holding the empty rem-
nant of what we thought was.
love.
Love is all too often por-
trayed at the physical level
of intimacy which if prop-
erly defined isn't love, but
lust. Neither is it intimacy.
Intimacy is born of rela-
tionship not the unveiling
and abuse of that which
should have been held pre-
cious. True love is not self-
ish, it's giving and caring
about the other person's well
being above one's own.
This is not to say that
there isn't a physical com-
ponent to love. But it is
meant to be the last of the
ribbons untied in the beauti-
ful anticipation of a loving
relationship within marriage.
Such love needs to have
its beginnings in God, in
c lf- icsp it and self-control.
Onl then will it flourish,
grow and last. Only then
will it know the ultimate ful-
fillment God designed it to
have in the first place.
In relationship to God, we
belong to him and desire to
become who he has created
us to be. In living out that
essence in every aspect of
our, being, we please God
and embrace self-respect.
Consequently, self-control
follows and creates confi-
dence as we live lives of
purpose and meaning not
obsessed with physical rela-
tionships.
Therefore, we get to
know the members of the
opposite sex as acquaintanc-
es, then friends, as well as
brothers and sisters of like
faith. We observe their inter-
action with other people in
groups, their families and
with ourselves. We watch
for similar interests and
aspirations. This process of
relational intimacy then
reveals when a connection is
made that will lead to a
deeper relationship.
In 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8,
we see what love is.
"Love is patient, love is
kind. It does not envy, it
does not boast, it is not
proud. It is not rude, it is not
self-seeking, it is not easily
angered, it keeps no record
of wrongs. Love does not
delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth. It always pro-
tects, always trusts, always
hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."
Loves me, loves me not?
We don't need to sit in a
field of daisies picking off
petals for the answer.
Measure love by the Bible's
time-tested standard to know
true love and not be fooled
by what love isn't. Selah.

Lake Placid couple witnesses God's work


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID "It was powerful to see
God working right there among couples," said
Mary Rucker.
She was speaking of the profound impact "
Rekindling the Romance a one-day event in
Tampa put on by Family Life of Campus
Crusade for Christ had on her and her hus-
band, Richard.
It made them think about some of the strug-
gles their marriage had been through in the early
years contentions from the outside that affect-
ed them within their home life. She empathized
with the couples who obviously were grappling
with issues that had robbed them of the romance
they first knew.
If she was moved by what she was witness-
ing, she was even more profoundly impacted by
what she sensed was happening within Richard
and herself. This one-day event was truly rekin-
dling the romance in their marriage even more
than "Weekend to Remember" had previously.
"I suppose it was a combination of both


events. But we found this one to be more
intense and powerful. We discovered an ability
to become more vulnerable and open with each
other more so than ever before in our 25 years
of marriage," Mary. said.
During the conference, the challenging, funny
and inspirational speakers motivated something
within them to want to follow through on what
they were learning.
"God has taken us to a deeper level in com-
municating and with intimacy," Mary said.
One way in which their marriage is different
is taking prayer more seriously.
"We pray with each other and more consis-
tently than before," she said.
Throughout the conference, certain acts of
renewal and reconciliation; as well as opportuni-
ties to covenant ,with one another in the areas of
prayer and appreciation had great bearing on
what would take place at home. And as the les-
sons settled into patterns within their own home,
they became restless to share what they'd

"life" has a way of getting in
the way of a romantic marriage.
They want to help couples rem-
edy that. Through sessions such
as Restoring Romance; First,
Love; Reclaiming Intimacy;
Pursuing Oneness; and; Going
the Distance; couples will learn
to incorporate Biblical princi-
pals that will put them on the
road to rekindling the romance
in their own marriages.

A heart for couples
Richard and Mary Rucker of


Lake Placid had attended
Family Life's "Weekend to
Remember" retreat. They
enjoyed the time to get to know
each other better and explore
new ways to deepen their love
and commitment.
So, when the invitation for
the one-day event, Rekindling
the Romance, came in the mail,
they immediately jumped at the
chance to attend. But, this time,
they invited other couples to
come along.
As much as the Ruckers had
enjoyed the weekend event,
somehow this one-day confer-
ence impacted them even more
significantly.
"We were blown away by the
power and anointing on this
event," Mary-said.
They.couldn't get away from
the nudging that they were sup-
posed to do more with this
experience. So, they got togeth-
er with the other couples who
had been with them empty
nesters and/or retirees with
visibly solid marriages.
"We had a dessert fellowship
to get to know each other better
and discover the different gifts
we each brought to the table,"
Mary said.
They prayerfully considered
what God might have them to
do with this new found energy
and excitement for bolstering
marriages.
The result was a candlelight
dinner at the church for this
group and their pastor. They
knew God was calling them to
bring Rekindling the Romance
to the church and they explored
how God would have them par-
ticipate.
They put together a vision
statement and follow-up plan.
When they approached the eld-
ers of the church, they whole-
heartedly gave their approval.
Once the event is over, follow-

The way to a man's heart is meatloaf?


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Jim's birthday was just around the
corner. Sue and he hadn't known each
other very long. But, they could sense
that this relationship was going some-
where serious.
Sue wanted to do something special
for Jim for his birthday and decided to
cook his favorite meal.
"So what's your favorite dinner?" she
asked.
'Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and
corn," he, said, smiling.
'Meatloaf?! I want to make you some-


thing special. Meatloaf
is so, so ordinary," she
sputtered.
He tried to convince
her that it didn't matter
to him that it was ordi-
nary. It was his
favorite. But Sue
promised him some-
thing more delectable

Warm-up time
They say that the way to a man's heart
is through, his stomach. Canng about
what he likes rather than criticizing his
choices satisfies not only his physical
hunger, but his emotional well-being and
ego.

Sit-up and'take notice
Putting aside our own preferences
isn't easy. We like to think our ideas are
the best ones. But when we willingly see
through our spouse's eyes, the new per-
spective nudges us to please him. The
result? Mutual contentment.

Curl-up together
Different backgrounds can create dis-
cord. What has been a favorite meal or
pastime in one partner's family may be
all together different in the home where
your spouse grew up. So, snuggle
together, honor one another's prefer-
ences and enjoy the harmony.

'vain conceit, but in humility consider

you :.shtild look -not only to your own
inffetSrs, but to the interests of others."

W 6 9"l Books recount black
w __ __ contributions, firsts
and hidden heritage
This month, as we continue
to remember the achievements
of African-Americans, your
libraries have many books to
open your eyes and give you
something to mull over.
Knowing more about our
heritage means you will better
understand your neighbors and
your fellow workers, so take
i home some thought-provoking
titles such as: "Created Equal:
The Lives and Ideas of Black
American Innovators," "Black
Profiles in Courage," "Black
Legacy: America's Hidden
Heritage," "Dark Salvation:
The Story of Methodism as it
Developed Among Blacks in
America," "Before the
Mayflower: A History of Black
America," "'Black Firsts: 2000
Years of Extraordinary
Achievements," "Army Life in
a Black Regiment," "Black
Women in White America" and


"Afro-bets Book of Black
Heroes From A-Z."

Valentine's greetings
In "The Valentine Box,"
Maud Hart Lovelace writes the
juvenile story of a small black
girl, new to the community,
who makes friends via the
classroom Valentine box.
Do you remember getting or
giving valentines? I can remem-
ber the box we had in our sec-
ond-grade room, and the excite-
ment of crafting and receiving
those mostly handmade cards.
It's still fun tO make cards but
we now can send them via the
Internet, as well as the post
office, or hand-delivery.
Stores are filled with boxes
of chocolate and other heart-
shaped goodies. According to
"Hearts, Cupids and Red Roses:
The Story of Valentine
Symbols," candy was not origi-
nally what was given. Since
Valentine's Day began in
Europe, and hunger was ever-


young and old. The
Victorian Age, 1837-
1901, was the golden
age of Valentines,
with elaborate
envelopes and color-
ful, often several
paged or foldout
cards. Get some ideas
for yourself in "How
Do I Love Thee?: A
Romantic Gift of
Love."

present in the ancient world,
children often banded together
on Valentine's Day to sing from
house to house in the hopes of
getting Valentine buns with cur-
rants in them.
The book says, "In some
English villages, people gave
Valentine buns to their godchil-
dren on the Sunday before and
the Sunday after the holiday.
The buns were sometimes given
to old people as well."
Expressing romantic
thoughts has been part of the
Valentine celebration from the
start. The oldest known written
valentine is dated 1477 and was
sent from a lady to a gentleman
addressed as "well beloved
Valentine." Since the 1600s the
English and later the Americans
have celebrated this special day
and continue.to observe it with
cards, parties, and decorations.
Comic and sentimental cards
have been written to lovers, the
sick, those who serve others
(postmen, milkmen, bakers,
schoolteachers), and friends


"My valentine I
pray that thou wilt be
not for a day, but for
eternity." Charles
Noel Douglas in
" A m e r i c a
Celebrates."
"Nesting birds,
mischievous- cupids,
graceful flowers and
heart shapes, lace
and ribbons the


Valentine symbols
form a kind of endless true-love
knot." From "Hearts, Cupids,
and Red Roses."

Carolyn Hesselink is the adminis-
trative secretary of the Highlands
County Library System. Library
cards are always free. For infor-
mation, call 452-3803 in Avon

Identifying wildflowers that grow in Central Florida


This week we continue our
discussion of Florida's wild-
flowers.
Yellow pitcher plant
The tall, bright yellow pitch-
er plant (Sarrcenia flava) grows
primarily in open bogs and
savannahs.
Several varieties of this plant
have been named according to
picture coloration and slight
differences in size and shape.
The flowers are large, yellow
and have a musky odor. The
scent can be strong in dense
stands.
In Florida the flowering can
start as early as the last week in
February and continue into late
March.

Pygmy fringe tree
Pgymy fring tree
(Chionanthus pygmaeus) is a
shrubby relative of the more
northerly fringe tree. Restricted
to scrub vegetation of the Lake


Wales Ridge, is becoming rare
because of development and is
listed as endangered.
Pgymy fringe trees grow in
scrub, sandhill and xeric ham-
mocks. Usually, they are under
10 feet tall and may form thick-
ets with evergreen scrub oaks
and shrubs.
Small, fragrant, white flow-
ers appear in clusters in the
spring, but the pygmy fringe
tree may be identified by its
leathery, yellow-green leaves in
the summer and its knobby
twigs in the winter.
Pickerelweed
Pickerel week (Pontederia
cordata) is an aquatic or marsh
perennial with a cluster of erect
arrowhead-shaped leaves basal
clump.
The leaves are four to eight.
inches across, shiny greep and
thick-spongy, standing up to
three feet tall on fleshy petioles.

clusters appear in midsummer.
These are followed by attractive
green pods that open to release
silky "parachutes" to drift away
on autumn winds.
Butterfly weed is unique

among milkweeds in that the
sap is not milky and the leaves
are not opposite. Many flowers
have an inner whorl of petals,
called the corolla, and an outer
whorl of sepals, called the
,calyx. These are the showy, col-
orful part of a typical flower.
The milkweeds are special:
they have a third whorl above
the corolla called the corona.
The butterfly weed is a perenni-
al that will come up year after
year in the same place without
crowing its neighbors.

Beth Lail is artist of the month


LAKE PLACID Stained
glass. quills, crochet rugs,
painting on gourds, candles,
clay pieces and homemade
soups these are just some of
the country crafts practiced by
Beth Lail, the Caladium Arts
and Crafts Co-operative's artist
of the month Ior February.
Born in Winston Salem,
N.C., Lail inherited a love for
crafts from her mother.
Homemade soaps are one of
her favorite creations. She
makes them using natural
ingredients such as oatmeal,
calendula flowers known for
their softening agents, olive oil,
palm and palm kernel oils,
cocoa butter, coconut oil and
shea butter.


LAIL

Once the soaps are made and
cut by hand, they dry for four to
six weeks before'they are ready
to use. Lail wraps them in net-
ting which serves as a wash-
cloth when using the soap.


Lail also makes caladium
leaf earrings by painting on
paper. Many hours are involved
in each pair, and no two are
alike. She paints candles with
zebra and giraffe themes and
leopard faces.
Recently she started making
blue jean purses from recycled
jeans used new printed fabric
for the linings.
Lail has been a member of
the co-op for about three years.
She likes being a member

artistic abilities with personal
handmade items.

7 Underestimating
SOurselves
I ,', Occasionally, we may be faced
' with a; task we fecl is
,.. impossible for us to performnl
We may believe that we do not
S ... have enough time or skill to
S..handle the job, and in such
situations, we are usually
defeated before we even try. However, we should keep in
mind that it is performing life's difficult tasks that really help
to make us grow.Although most of us have necessary simple
tasks to perform, we.usually learn very little or nothing at all
by doing them. It is only when we are challenged with a job
that takes all of our ability, either mentally or physically, that
we become a stronger and more effective person. Always
underestimating ourselves, and having the mindset of not
ever trying to perform difficult tasks combine, often
unwittingly, to form a negative attitude that will only help to
defeat our character.The personal success that we attain
from performing and/or completing tasks that truly
challenge us will be reflected in our greater enjoyment of
life. In fact, we may surprise ourselves by learning that our
ability is indeed up to the challenge of performing these so-
called impossible jobs, and when we perform well. we are
doing exactly what our Heavenly Father expects of us: to be
the best that we can be.

learned with others.
"We wanted to bring this
extraordinary gift of perspec-
tive we had received to other
couples," Mary said.
Consequently, the Ruckers
and the other couples who
attended the conference, are
sponsoring the one-day event,
Rekindling the Romance, at
their home church, The First
Presbyterian Church of Lake
Placid, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
March 12.
The Ruckers see the effects

rehearses at 7:15 p.m. the same
day in Room 34.
Sue Lewis is directing the
chorus, and June Zweidinger is
directing the orchestra.

that busy lifestyles, stress,
careers, lack of communication,
financial struggles and exhaus-
tion can have on families.
Mary is a Christian counselor
at the church and is available
for all types of counseling
including grief, marriage and
whatever the need may be.
Richard is the assistant princi-
pal at Avon Park Middle School
and an elder at First
Presbyterian of Lake Placid.
Richard and Mary are avid
readers and enjoy pursuing, this
pastime together. And they
especially love traveling and
discovering new places.


p.m. Sunday, March 6, at the
SFCC Auditorium.
Other works being per-
formed that night will be
Albinoni's "Adagio in E
Minor," Handel's "Organ
Concerto No. 2," "Bach's "Joy
of Man's Desiring" and
"Pavane" by M. Ravel.
Donations will be accepted at
the door.


"But, it.doesn't matter what
we are doing, really," she said.
"We just love being and doing
'whatever' together. We are
each other's best friend."
The Ruckers have had this
type of relationship throughout
their marriage, but since
Rekindling the Romance, it has
definitely heightened.
They hope to help couples
develop an intimate friendship
and not let "life" get in the way
of a romantic marriage.
"We want to inspire them to
rekindle the embers into a flame
once again."


SPARK
Continued from 1C

up to help couples mature and
grow in their marriages and
romance will include:
V Home Builders Bible
studies designed for small
groups (four to five couples).
Couples will meet every other
week for the study. On the alter-
nate week they will have a date
night to discuss whatever topic
they're working on; such as,
communication and learning to
really hear one another; or,
busyness and how that affects
marriages.
V Mentorship where older
couples who have been married
a while and walked the paths
that younger couples are now
traveling can develop friend-
ships. Consequently, couples
will learn they're not alone in
their struggles and be encour-
aged to know that when God is
in their marriage it can succeed.
V Preaching from the pulpit
about what God has to say
about marriage.
t Marriage and financial
counseling available through
the church.
Since space is limited to 150
couples, it is advisable to act
soon. Couples need to make
arrangements for their children
as childcare is not provided. A


registration form can be down-
loaded from the church's Web
site: httlp://www.fpclp.com. Or
brochures can be picked up at
Emmanuel Bible Book Shop in

Travelogue sails to Rio



aboard the Queen Mary 2


Documentary
records the maiden
voyage of the
largest ship in the
world
SEBRING The Kiwanis
Club of Sebring invites the
community to go "Sailing
Down to Rio on the Queen
Mary 2" at the showing of the
next documentary in its Travel
and Adventure Film Series.
The film can be viewed at 5
p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 22, in the
Sebring Civic Center. Sponsors
are Ridge Area Arc,
Stephenson-Nelson Funeral
Home and the News-Sun.
The Cunard Line launched
the Queen Mary in 1934. The
largest ship of its kind in its day,
it set a new standard for ocean
liners.
In 2004, Cunard launched its
fourth Queen the Queen
Mary 2. At the time, she was the
longest, tallest and widest
ocean liner in the world.
To commemorate that
launch, Cunard sent the Queen
Mary 2 to Rio de Janiero in
Brazil for the annual Carnival,
the largest party on earth. That
trip was recorded by Doug
Jones, one of the foremost pro-
ducers of travel films in
America.
In February, the Queen Mary
2 embarked from Fort
Lauderdale with 2,500 passen-
gers aboard and sailed to Brazil.
Nine days and nearly 7,000
miles later, it reached the fabled

The Queen Mary 2, flagship of the Cunard Line, prepares to set sail
from Fort Lauderdale enroute to Rio de Janeiro for Carnival. Her
maiden voyage is captured in 'Sailing Down to Rio on the Queen
Mary 2.'


"City of the River of January."
The voyage duplicates the
trip of the S.S. Normandy in
1938. At that time the French
Line flagship sailed from New
York on its one and only cruise.
The Normandy was packed
with rich and famous revelers.
The Queen Mary 2 repeats
the experience with the additiofi
of one modern comfort air
conditioning. And while the
Normandy passengers took
quick dips in a tiny onboard
pool, passengers aboard the
Queen Mary 2 enjoyed a float-
ing spa operated by the famed
Canyon Ranch.
The destination, Rio, is situ-
ated in one of the most beautiful
bays in the world. During


Carnival, colorful Samba
parades, long white beaches
and beautiful sunbathers add to
the excitement of the trip.
Jones developed a passion
for producing travel films on
ocean liners when he sailed
around the world on the Queen
Elizabeth 2.
"When Cunard announced
that they were building the new
Queen Mary 2 and that its first
major cruise would be to Rio
for Carnival, I thought to
myself 'I have to be on board
for that!," Jones said.
Tickets are $7 at the door.
Seats are reserved for season
ticket holders. For details, call
Grace Owens at 273-1421.
