Uncommon Valor was


a Common Virtue


Saturday marks the

60th anniversary of the

invasion of Iwo Jima
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
t appeared as an insignificant speck in the vast Pacific,
but the battle to claim it was one of the most ferocious
and important of World War II.
Iwo Jima (Japanese for Sulfur Island) lies 750 miles
from Tokyo in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and is noth-
ing more than a pile of volcanic ash and rock, a mere two
miles wide and four miles long. At the southern end is the
546-foot high Mount Suribachi volcano, and the northern
part has hills with deep gulches. The soil is so porous that
there are no streams, and water is scarce. The 1,000 Japanese
civilians who operated the sulfur mines were removed before
the war began. Economically, it was of no great importance,
but as a tool for war, it was strategic.
By 1945, the Allied command sensed that the end was
near, but they needed to do more than retake the Japanese-
captured territories in the periphery. They had to strike at the
heart of the Japanese mainland. To accomplish that, they
needed air bases on islands closer to Japan. Iwo Jima was
first for that purpose, but they'd bombed it for months wjth
no success. The well-fortified tunnels on the island made it
impenetrable from the air. If Iwo Jima were to be taken, it
would have to be done the hard way.
On the morning of Feb. 19, 1945, the 4th and 5th Marine
Divisions invaded after a 72-hour bombardment.
"The boat landing was awful. We crawled off that ship,
and the coast was smashed with landing barges and floating
dead bodies what a meat grinder that was," 80-year-old
Olaf (Ole) Berg of Lake Placid said.
"I was a private in the Fourth Marine Division (artillery)
and stayed until the war was done. I never had a furlough,"
Berg said. "A Marine never leaves, kid. The motto Semper
Fi means always faithful."'
This would be the fourth amphibious assault in 18 months
that the Fourth Marine Division took part in. Although Berg

Projected

more than


double in


25 years

Retirees still biggest
age group
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County,
already mostly a retirement commu-
nity, could double its population in as
little as 20 yeais.
Estimates from' the Bureau of
Economic and Business Research,
said the county, which had 97,900
people in 2000, could have 204,300.
in 2030. About 40 percent of those
people would be 65 years or older.
The county could have as many as
137,300 by 2010, just five years from
now, and 167,200 by 2020. These
numbers include seasonal residents,
said Don Hanna with the Highlands
County Planning Department.
The numbers came out as part of
the Long Range Transportation Study
put together for the county by the
Florida Department of Transportation
and CH2M Hill, an engineering con-
sulting firm in Orlando. If the county
and FDOT could build all of the roads
engineers figure county residents will
need by 2030, it would cost $850 mil-
lion, in 2004 dollars.

Council to resort: Take down sign in 30 days


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A 50-
year-old sign for Lake Blue
Resort got a 30-day reprieve
Monday night, but that will not
likely spare it from being
removed.
Apparently, the sign is illegal
on several counts. It is an off-
premises sign, which the town
code forbids, it exceeds the


town's height restrictions, and it
is either on town right of'way or
another property owner's land.
Resort manager John
Rydecki was supposed to bring
a survey to the Lake Placid
'Town Council Monday night
and show who owned the prop-
erty where the site was posted.
However, Rydecki said
Germaine Surveying did not
have the survey completed in


Holiday Inn almost


ready, another


hotel rumored

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING As work finishes up on Highlands County's
newest hotel, word comes that another lodging facility might
soon be on the way.
"All I can tell you at this point is that they are looking at the
property on the corner of U.S. 27 and Tubbs Road," said
Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency Executive
Director Pete Pollard.
He gave the update at Tuesday night's Sebring City Council
meeting.
Some council members had indicated it might be a Mariott
Residence Inn, however, Pollard said to his knowledge a flag
for the hotel has not yet been determined. .
It is believed the hotel would stretch four stories into the air
and house as many as 80 rooms.
Reportedly, the closing on the property is set for the end of
this month.
Meanwhile, crews from KDL Construction are completing
work on the access road to the new Holiday Inn Express &
Suites on U.S. 27. The paving project is the last piece of the
puzzle to getting the hotel open.
"We cannot get the hotel inspected by Holiday Inn until that
road has been completed," said developer Raxit Shah.
See HOTEL, page 7A


time for the meeting and that a
title search would be required to
resolve the issue.
At the council's meeting in
January, Rydecki suggested that
the-sign might be on state right
of way. Since that time, repre-
sentatives of the Florida
Department of Transportation
found that not to be the case.
The sign is on property with-
in the town limits, although the


resort is not, and it is in front of
property owned by 'the
Yarbrough family. Their attor-
ney, Rob Livingston, said the
Yarbroughs are having difficul-
ty selling the property because
prospective buyers are taking
issue with the Lake Blue Resort ,
sign.
Town code enforcement offi-
cer Lanny Tolly said he meas-
ured the distance of the sign to


various points. He found that it
is four feet off the paved portion
of South Lakeview Road and
nine feet behind the utility pole
on U.S. 27. He said utility poles
are usually on the right of way
line.
"Without a survey specific to
the sign and where it is, no one
can say," Tolly said. "What we
can say is where it isn't. It

Jaycees want

more money
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Town Council
has been asked to chip in
more money for the annual
Fourth of July fireworks
show over Lake June.
The annual show .is
staged by the Lake Placid
Jaycees. The Jaycees try to
pay for the fireworks
\through donations, but has
been falling short of the
how's approximately
310,000 costs.
\ The council to budget
$2,500 for this year and
$5,000 in the future.


CORRECTIONS
In a business story that ran in
Wednesday's News-Sun, the
address and phone number for
Car-Medic .Center in Sebring
was incorrect. The business
relocated to 555 U.S. 27,
Sebring and the phone number
is 385-9898.

In the Wednesday edition of
the News-Sun, Jerry Edenfield
was mis-identified. He is the
grandfather of Alicia Martin of
Sebring, with whom he danced
at the annual American Red
Cross Red & White Ball.

In a graphic printed Sunday
in the News-Sun listing the
FCAT dates, there were a few
incorrect listings.
The correct testing schedule
is Test NRT Reading and Math
on March 9 for grades 6-8, 60
minutes each; on March 10,
elementary schools grades 3-5,
Test NRT Reading, and on
March 10 high schools grades,
9-10 Test NRT Reading and
Math, 60 minutes each; arid on
March 11, elementary schools
grades 3-5, Test NRT Math.
All other test dates in the
graphic were correct.
The News-Sun regrets these
errors.

SEBRING Because three
schools will be directly effected
by the second phase of the
Sebring Parkway project, board
members met with county offi-
cials Tuesday night for a work-
shop to coordinate planning and
identify possible problems.
Deputy Superintendent Jim
Bible greeted Carl Cool, county
administrator, and Ramon
Gavarette, project engineer,
with a gift wrapped selection of
sharpened pencils. This was
because there are some con-
cerns, and a sharp point will be
needed to resolve them.
The second phase of Sebring
Parkway will continue the high-
way across Ridgewood Drive
where it will replace Eucalyptus
Street, and run behind Sebring
Middle School, cross Lemon
Street and Center Avenue
before bending up to replace
Highlands Avenue where it will
run down into U.S. 27.
One of the problems involves
Fred Wild Elementary School,
which will lose 35 feet of its
property fronting what is now
Highlands Avenue. This means


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID In a rare
show of- contentiousness,
Councilman Bill Brantley
accused the town's code officer
of not doing his job and asked
when he would retire at
Monday's council meeting.
Code Enforcement Officer
Lanny Tolly was giving his
monthly report to the Lake
Placid Town Council when
Brantley presented him with
several pages of digital photos
he had taken off Main Street in
the area of Plumosa and
Washingtonia avenues.
Brantley said they represented
"more than 100" code viola-
: 'tionsin a fout-block area.
Brantley' 'asked 'whether
Tolly's approach to code
enforcement was proactive or
reactive. When Tolly firmly
said it was proactive, Brantley
questioned why he was not
doing his jbb. Tolly advised
Brantley to bring his concerns
to his office when he had them.
Brantley then asked whether
Tolly even drove around the
town looking for code viola-
tions. He said the ones he had
documented amounted to bro-
ken screens, storm debris~ that
had yet to be disposed of, and
grass growing up to three times
the height allowed by town
code,
"We shouldn't have to tell
you how to do your job,"
Brantley said.
"You shouldn't have to tell
me to do my job," Tolly
responded. "The mayor should
tell me to do my job."
As the heated exchange flew
back and forth between the two,
Councilman Jim Waller finally
interrupted it by rebuking
Brantley.
"Why do you have to keep
humiliating the man like this?"
Waller asked. "If you have a
problem, you should take it up
with him in his office, not in
this council meeting room
where everyone can see it on


the entrance to the school will
be rerouted to Youth Care Lane,
and the administration offices
will have to be relocated within
the campus, possibly in a new
building. The board felt it
would be wiser to redesign Fred
Wild before laying down roads.
Sebring Middle School will
also be impacted by the
changes, not because it fronts
.on the highway, but because of
the altered traffic patterns that
will significantly increase the
flow of traffic on Center
Avenue.
Board members expressed
strong reservations about that
increased traffic.
"This will be forcing traffic
onto one street, where before
(drivers) had options," board
member Wendy Renfro said.
"The main pick-up point is
already a major bottle neck at
school release time, it's going to
have to be adapted, and that will
cost money. We might have to
move it to the back and would
need to buy property to do
that."
Bible and county officials
agreed to visit the school at dis-
missal time to observe the situ-


"I know you just want to get
out of here," Brantley told
Waller, and went on with his
complaints.
Brantley received three com-
plaints about code enforcement
in the past three weeks.
"Everyone talks about it, but
I'm the only'one who says any-
thing about it," Brantley said.
During the exchange, Tolly
told the council he intended to
retire in November. He advised
the council to begin looking for
a replacement in July and hire
them in September.
Because Tolly will be receiv-
ing Social Security during those
months, his pay will decrease
accordingg. Tolly' suggested
that savings niighT offset the
cost of having two code
enforcement officers for two
months, and the new officer
would benefit from training.


ation and conduct a car count,
although Cool indicated that
while the car count would rise,
he felt that the increased num-
ber of lanes and the signal light
which would be added, would
take care of the problem.
Sebring High School is not
only effected by the Parkway's
expansion, but also by the coun-
ty's plans for. an extensive
recreation center, which is pro-
posed for the area just north of
the school's campus.
Current plans call for con-
structing a tournament quality
center with five softball dia-
monds, a football field with
bleachers and lights, two soccer
fields and one field large
enough to accommodate three
teams practicing at the same
time. These fields will be
designed for maximum use,
adaptable for adult and youth
play.
Additional fields and tennis
courts are planned for the
school campus, which is sepa-
rated from the county project by
railroad tracks.
Parking lots at the school will
be reconfigured, and new ones,


added for easier access to the
Parkway. Signal lights will be
added at Commerce Street.
Bus access will be provided
by a new access road created
from the northern entrance to
the Children's Services Center,
which will then swing around
and over to the school. The
buses, staff and seniors would
exit the campus via Commerce
Avenue. Other student, parking
would be shifted to an expand-
ed parking lot on the south east
end of the school, and the
entrance moved a little further
east on Kenilworth Avenue.
The board felt these moves
were a'good'plan, but had.con-
cerns about the future, especial-
ly because of the unprecedented
growth in student population,
which means the high school
will have to add classrooms and
expand the cafeteria in the
future.
Board member Donna
Howerton said there is a grow-
ing interest in vocational educa-
tion and that due to a lack of
sites, a vocational center might
have to' be built at Sebring High
School.


The problem is space, which
is already cramped.
"We need to be able to add a
minimum of three additional
classroom buildings," board
member J. Ned Hancock said.
"It's a good plan, don't get me
wrong, but we need to plan
ahead, we don't want to put
roads in, only to pull them out
to build classes."
One possibility would be to
construct a pedestrian bridge
over the railroad tracks, so the
high school could use the coun-
ty play fields, thereby saving
the area where school fields are
planned in addition.
The board recognized the
need for a recreational center,
especially one that can draw
tournaments to the county, but
insisted that a hard look be
taken at the entire picture to
avoid duplication of effort and
future costly corrections.
Cool agreed it was important
to look ahead, while the board
agreed it was important to work
cooperatively.
The work with sharpened
pencils goes on.

Hartman charged with 28 forgeries of daughter's checks


By PHIL ATiTNGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On Wednesday, Feb.
16, Highlands County sheriff's deputies
charged David Eugene Hartman, 44, of
Sebring, with grand theft, 28 counts of for-
gery and 28 counts of uttering a forged
instrument.
He allegedly stole the checks from his
daughter. He lived with her in Lake Placid
throughout 2004, and during that time,
some of the checks came up missing. She
didn't think anything ,of it until Jan. 4,
2005, when she found money missing from


her account.
That's when she learned the missing
checks had been forged. Her signature on
the checks looked to her like her father's
handwriting.
All the checks were passed at Jayvee
Stores, two locations that Hartman fre-
quented. One of them is in Sebring; the
other in Lake Placid.
All of the checks were made out to David
Hartman, but the odd check was' made out
to Jayvee. All of .the checks were passed
between Nov. 18, .2004, and Jan. 4, 2005.
Amounts ranged from $30-$52, with the


exception of one check for $70 and another
for $160. The total value of the checks was
$1,168.
Sheriff's deputies contacted the owner of
the two stores and he said Hartman is a reg-
ular customer. He also said that Hartman
was the one bringing in the checks drawn
on the daughter's account, telling the owner
that he was doing work for the daughter and
that checks were payment for, that work. ,
The owner of the stores said he had also
authorized his employees to cash the
checks, as well.

West Sebring Volunteer firefighters discuss a one-car accident
Thursday evening while they await a tow truck to take the vehicle
driven by Pamela Forman of Sebring from the scene.

Driver buckles up in time for crash


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A Sebring
woman who was trying to fas-
ten her seat belt reportedly lost
control of her car, rolled it and
hit the side of a house Thursday
evening.
Pamela Forman, 35, told
troopers she was southbound on
Memorial Drive and had
reached down to click her seat
belt into the holder. However,
the action pulled the wheel to
the right and she went off the
side of road.
. Troopers said she over cor-
rected, spun around then rolled
the car up an embankment and
into the screen room on the
back of the duplex.
Apparently she was able to
get the belt fastened just before
the accident occurred.
Rita Murphy was on her way
back home from the store about
4:30 p.m. Thursday. As she
traveled southward on
Memorial Drive, she saw a
Highlands County Sheriff's
cruiser with lights blazing come
by her.
When Murphy approached
her turnoff, she again saw the
cruiser with a deputy standing
at the intersection of Memorial


and Valerie drives.
"I thought the accident was
there at the crossroads," she
said.
It was then she spotted
Forman's Pontiac Grand Prix
GT upside down and resting
against her screen room.
Neighbors gathered to watch
as the West Sebring Volunteer
Fire Department worked with
Highlands County Emergency
Management personnel to
,extract the young driver from
the car.
Forman was taken to Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center where she was treated
and released.
It was in September that
Murphy first moved into the
duplex next to the busy inter-
section.
"There are a lot of accidents
that happen there," she said -
gesturing to the crossroads.-
"And they really come flying
around that curve."
The vehicle miraculously
just missed a pine tree stump
next to the building.
"I had a refrigerator out on
the back porch there and that
was hit," she said.
Charges in the incident are
pending further investigation.


SEBRING Volunteers
from the' Highlands Park Fire
Department were called out
during the pre-dawn hours
Wednesday to extinguish a fire
at a home on Pershing Avenue.
Reportedly, the Royce Ellis
home was fully involved in
flames when units arrived on
the scene. The father and son
living in the manufactured
home escaped without injury.
No dollar damage estimate is
yet available.
Units from the Sun 'N Lake


South, Lake Placid and Placid
Lakes volunteer fire depart-
ments gave mutual aid in fight-
ing the fire.
An electrical problem is sus-
pected, but State Fire Marshal
Investigator Brandon Ball is
looking into the cause of the
fire.

Avon Park looks to organize CERT team


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK- Just as the
latest Community Emergency
Response Team received its
certification, the city of Avon
Park is looking at starting yet
another one.
Councilman Doug Eason
asked that the item be placed on
Monday night's agenda so it
could be discussed by all of the
city officials.
"I think it's an idea worth
exploring," said Capt. Preston
Colby of Florida Public Safety.
It was he and then-Avon Park
Fire Inspector Charles
Anderson who started the first
such team better than two years
ago at South Florida
Community College.
Colby has helped with all of
the CERT teams to date.
"People are going to help
people in the event of a disas-
ter," Colby said. "The best
thing to do is to give them train-
ing, uncommon sense and
equipment."
Calling the CERT teams a.
"force multiplier," Colby point-
ed out that the out of pocket
expenses for the city probably
would be nothing, inasmuch as
the federal government has seen
the value of such training and
has provided funding through
the department of homeland
security.
"I suggest we begin by ask-
ing people in the community if
they are interested," Colby said,
noting that he would take care
of the organization, funding
sources and training.
He recommended as a first
step, that he meet with Avon
Park City Manager C.B. Shirey
and selected staff members to
discuss the how, when and

Council approves

three site plans

News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Town Council
approved site plans for three
new or expanding businesses
Monday night.
The Michael A. Brochetti
Funeral Home was approved to
be constructed on lots four and
five in Placid Plaza.
Council members took issue
with the 24 planned parking
places. They feared that num-
ber would be insufficient to
accommodate funerals and
viewings.
The number of spaces
exceed the requirements of
town code. Therefore, council
could not reject the site plan for
insufficient parking.
The second site plan was for
Gregory and Pamela Karlson.
They want to construct residen-
tial office space on 3.72 acres
at Hillcrest Street and Dal Hal
Boulevard. He sells real estate,
and she is. an attorney.
The final site plan was for
Finishing Touches, which sells
draperies and window treat-
ments. It wants to construct a
2,000-square-foot building at
the corner of Hillcrest and
Georgia streets. For that quarter
acre, the council also approved
a small scale amendment to the
town's comprehensive plan,
changing the land use from
low- to medium-density resi-
dential to commercial general.


where of a CERT team organi-
zation. Colby said he would use
the models of the SFCC and
Highlands County School
Board teams as the template for
the team put together through
the city of Avon Park.
The certification of the sec-
ond school board CERT team
earlier this month made it the
third such team to be organized
in Highlands County.
It brought to 50 the number
of school system members who
now are trained to deal with
emergency situations mostly
in the Highlands County school -
system.
In addition, Colby has sug-
gested that numerous different
organizations including both
local hospital develop CERT
teams that in time could take on
specialties to help during the
time of natural disasters or
man-made accidents.
Colby said there is a great
deal of misconception 'about
CERT teams and what they can
- and cannot -do.
The Citizen Corps web site


explains that the CERT pro-
gram helps to train people to be
better prepared to respond to
emergency situations in their
communities.
When emergencies happen,
CERT members can give criti-
cal support to first responders,
provide immediate assistance to
victims, and organize sponta-
neous volunteers at a disaster
site. CERT members can also
help with non-emergency proj-
ects that help improve the safe-
of the community.
CERT training includes dis-
Aster preparedness, disaster fire
suppression, basic disaster
medical operations, and light
search and rescue operations.
Over the next two years,
Citizen Corps officials said
their aim is to double the num-
ber of participants, with over
400,000 individuals completing
the 20 plus hours of training.
In fact, Train-the-Trainer ses-
sions will be held in all' 50
states pluhis the United States'
territories over the next year to
expand the program.

appears to be on our road right
of way, not the state's."
While Rydecki begged the
council to let him keep the sign
and Councilman Bill Brantley
called it a landmark, Livingston
said the sign needed to go.
"This is a situation where we
need to do what is right to
follow the rules and follow the
law," Livingston said. "My
clients, the Yarbroughs, are
being hurt by this. Either it's on
the city right of way or its on
the Yarbroughs' property."
Councilwoman Debra


Worley said the council had an
obligation to act on behalf of its
taxpayers, the Yarbroughs, and
enforce its laws in its town lim-
its. Eventually, Councilmen Jim
Waller, Charles Wilson and
Brantley sided with her.
"I don't think we have a
choice," Waller told Rydecki.
"There's no gray area. There's
nothing lining up in your
favor."
Brantley said the sign was in
the right of way, too tall and off
premise.
"I think it has historical
value. I think it should stay, but
I don't see any possible way we
can allow it," Brantley said.
Wilson said the problem was


that if the council allowed the
sign, it would have to give all
businesses the same considera-
tion.
"It's pretty clear it's not on
one person's property, it's on
our property," Wilson said. "It's
a slippery slope. If we let one
person do it, we have to let
everyone do it."
The council voted unani-
mously to give Rydecki 30 days
to take down the sign or give
them a compelling reason as to
why it should not be removed.
Although Rydecki at first said
he wouldn't take the sign down
even in 30 days, he later relent-
ed and said he would remove it
if he had to.

Ashore, the amphtracs found
volcanic ash and cinders poor
going, and the terraces of
Mount Suribachi insurmount-
able. Tremendous mortar fire
rained from the mouths of their
cleverly constructed tunnels.
Iwo Jima had to be taken yard
by yard, fighting up bare slopes
against a seasoned, strongly
entrenched enemy.
Soldiers were unfortunately
familiar with the obedient,
fanatical and fatalistic code of
bushido, which required
Japanese soldiers to fight to the
death, as the Emperor demand-
ed. Believing surrender meant
disgrace they preferred sui-
cide to capture. This would be
like lifting the lid on Hell.
In the end, out of the entire
Japanese garrison, of 20,000
men on Iwo Jima, only 216
were taken alive, while 30 per-
cent of the American landing
force became casualties.
Almost 7,000 Americans
were killed in action at Iwo
Jima, with more than 20,000
casualties. Almost one-third of
all Marines killed in action in
World War II were killed on
Iwo Jima, making it the battle
with the highest number of
casualties in Marine Corps his-
tory. Twenty-seven
Congressional Medals of Honor
were awarded more than kere
awarded to Marines and--Na\\~
in any other battle in this coun-
try's history.
By then the Allies had per-
fected the technique of
amphibious warfare, which
involved air, land and sea forces
working as a team. And they
knew capturing Iwo Jima was
instrumental to ending the war.
Before the Marines landed;
Japanese fighter planes
attacked American bombers
from there. But afterward, U.S.
fighter planes would use the
airstrips to protect their
bombers flying from Saipan
and Tinian to Japan. And crip-
pled B29 bombers returning
from raids on Japan used it for
emergency landings.

Highest bidder

gets town's plant
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID By tak-
ing advantage of an open bid-
ding process, the town of Lake
Placid's utilities director man-
aged to raise bids for the town's
old wastewater treatment plant
by $20,000.
In his report to the Lake
Placid Town Council Monday
night, Freeman said
Christopher Clark and
Frederick Bowen submitted
bids of $50,000 and $51,250,
respectively. Since the spread
between them was small,
Freeman asked the bidders if
they would be interested in
sweetening the pot.
Clark won the bid with
$71,000.


holes. It was incredibly hot and
smelled horribly of sulphur.
The Japanese continuously
fired their cannons; strafing a
path across this way, then back
again. As each strike passed,
you'd count, and then breathe;
surprised it missed you. We
lived on cigarettes and water,"
Berg said, taking a long final
drag on his cigarette, crushing
it, and then lighting another as
he continued. "We secured the
island. We took it for the air
corps so they could bomb
Japan."
"I was a telephone lineman.
My job was to hook 'em up. I
crawled along by the airstrip
with a reel of wire and then it
ran out while shots peppered
toward me," Berg said. "That
was the fastest splice I ever
made. It was my job, to get that
phone in. Luckily, I was just out
of range of those shots, and I
sure made the dirt fly as I got
out of there."
The 28th Regiment, 5th
Division, was ordered to cap-
ture Mount Suribachi. They
reached the base of the moun-
tain on the afternoon of Feb. 21,
and by nightfall the next day
had almost completely sur-
rounded it. On the morning of
Feb. 23, Marines of Company
E, 2nd Battalion, started the tor-
tuous climb up the rough terrain
to the top. At about 10:30 a.m.,
the sight of a small American
flag flying atop Suribachi
thrilled men all over the island.

slopes were clear of enemy.
resistance, a second, larger flag
was raised by five Marines and
a Navy hospital corpsman: Sgt.
Michael Strank, Cpl. Harlon H.
Block, Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley,
Pfc. Rene A. Gagnoh, Pfc. Ira
Hayes, and PhM.2/c John H.


Bradley, USN.
"When that flag went up,
there wasn't a dry eye on the
island," Berg said.
News-photographer Joe
Rosenthal caught the raising of
the afternoon flag in an inspir-
ing Pulitzer-Prize-winning pho-
tograph. When the picture was
later released, sculptor Felix W.
de Weldon, then on duty with
the U.S. Navy, was so moved
that, he constructed a scale
model and later a life-size
model. Gagnon, Hayes, and
Bradley, the three survivors of
* the flag raising (the others were
killed before the battle was
over) posed for the sculptor.
After Iwo Jima, Okinawa
was the next to fall. But at the
height of the battle, President
Theodore Roosevelt suddenly
died. His successor, unknown
Harry S. Truman, quickly made
a decision: The grim reaping
scythe of atomic bombs on
Aug. 6 at Hiroshima and Aug. 9
on Nagasaki ended the war.
Unconditional surrender fol-
lowed on Aug. 14.

He said he has the staff for
the new hotel on board and will
be ready-to go as soon as the
access road is finished.
Crews began paving on the
road earlier this week.
Ken LaGrow of KDL said
one of the major hold-ups has
been the inability to get asphalt
to do the job.
"We've been held up since
Christmas waiting for asphalt,"
LaGrow said.
He explained that the
MacAsphalt plant has been shut
down since that time, apparent-
ly with a conveyor belt prob-

rest of county services would

responding costs.

kind of upside down."

been making a customized mix
for themselves that has not been
available for sales to others.
"They're making that for a
project they're doing," LaGrow
said.
He said there was asphalt
available outside the county at
MacAsphalt's Winter Haven
facility, but it was the trans-
portation of the material that
presented a problem.
"We've had cold weather,"
he said. "That's an hour drive.
By the time we would have got-
ten it here, it would have been
too cool. "
As LaGrow explained it, the
asphalt must be kept at a tem-
perature no cooler than 275
degrees. If it is not kept at the
proper temperature, the asphalt
loses its integrity.
In fact, it was the cooler tem-


and older, said Kevin Roberts,
director of Highlands County
Human Services. The county
receives funds from the Elder
Americans Act and the Florida
Department of Elder Affairs
through county government and
private non-profit agencies.
The West Central Florida
Area Agency on Aging cov-
ering Highlands, Hardee,
Hillsborough, Manatee, and
Polk counties makes an
assessment on' what's needed.
Roberts, in his experience, said
the county will need to look at

from putting the asphalt down
last week.
They were able t6 get it just
last week and began construct-
ing the access road the final
piece of the construction ear-
lier this week.
LaGrow said his crews
would be finished by Feb. 23.
Hotel project manager Punit
Shah earlier said he hoped to

for the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring.

transportation will have to
improve to help those who can
no longer drive.
"I've been in this business 13
years," Roberts said, "and I've
never seen a community so giv-
ing to people in need. I've got a
feeling we will continue to do
just that."
Hanna said the bureau statis-
tics have historically underesti-
mated the county's population.
It may be because the reports
were based on building permits
or another variable. Either way,
his planners took numbers the
bureau ga're as a middle esti-
mate and a high estimate and -
split the difference.

Women still hammering for Habitat


'It's a great way to see the country
and meet nice people.'
KATHY FOWLER
Habitat for Humanity Care-a-vanner


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK
F or weeks now the hammers have been pounding
and the saws whirring as a dedicated group of
women volunteers build a house for Gloria Bryant
and her family. The house is one of six current
Highlands County Habitat for Humanity projects under
way. It should be completed in April.
The women work every Thursday and Saturday, from 8
a.m. to 2 p.m.
Volunteers are needed for the project to remain on sched-
ule. Women do not need to have building experience in
order to make a contribution. Men are welcome to pass
nails or pour water, but the work is entirely in feminine
hands.
A special group of volunteers were in evidence on the
work site Saturday.
Known as Care-a-vanners, they travel the country for
Habitat for Humanity and work where volunteers are hard
to come by or on projects that require extra help.
Patty Carney and Linda Mercer drove down from Cape
Cod, Mass., to lend a hand. Kathy Fowler and her husband,
Bob, came from Melbourne.
Many of the Care-a-vanners are retired, and some spend
the year helping at different sites. Most work three projects
a year.
"It's a great way to see the country and meet nice people,
really nice people" Kathy Fowler said.
Habitat is celebrating another success this month.
Saturday marked the third anniversary of the Habitat Home
Supply Store, 137 S. Commerce Ave. During its anniver-
sary week Feb. 19-25 the store will have specials
every day. It offers free pickups for large donations such as
building supplies, furniture and appliances.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. Saturday. The number is 385-7111.
Highlands County Habitat for Humanity's business office
is at 825 W. Main St. in Avon Park; 453-9695.

2004
By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
Just about the time planning
was completed for the
Highlands Heroes event sched-
uled for the courthouse lawn,
Hurricane Charley decided to
pay Highlands County a visit.
He was followed by
Hurricane Frances and finally
Hurricane Jeanne.
By then, public safety offi-
cials were too involved with
clean up efforts either of their
community or their personal
property.
Then, once things started get-
ting to where they felt normal
again, the elections and holi-
days were here.
But, the News-Sun was not
about to let these events,
whether planned or not, keep
from honoring these men who
our readers nominated and
judges selected as our 2004
Highlands Heroes.
The purpose of this award is
to honor the heroes of
Highlands County working as
paid employees and volunteers
in public service. They work for
the county's police depart-
ments, sheriff's office, fire
departments, Emergency
Medical Services, emergency
operations, and forestry. The
nominations were also opened
to include Florida Highway
Patrol, AeroMed, Avon Park
Correctional Institute and
Florida Fish and Game, though
no one from these agencies was
nominated this year.
For the first time, the News-
Sun also opened the nomina-
tions to also include a resident


Highla
of Highlands County who has
performed a heroic act.
Criteria for the nomination
was that the person resides in
Highlands County and works as
a paid employee or volunteer in
one of the above mentioned
public service field. Past nomi-
nees for the award can be
renominated.
Nominations were made .by
peers as well as members of the
general public.
Judges, who did not include
News-Sun employees, base
their decisions on the nominee's
work history and community
involvement. The decisions of
the judges is final.
Each honoree received a
beautiful plaque with their
name inscribed, as well as
"admired for your achieve-
ments, noble qualities and con-
sidered a model citizen in
Highlands County. Thanks from
those you serve and protect."
The Highlands Heroes for
2004 are:
County Law Enforcement
Hero Tom Ouverson is a crime
scene technician at Highlands
County Sheriff's Office, but his
love of community takes him
far outside of the office and
away from the crime scene.
Ouverson is also on call for
major crime, scenes even with-
in the limits of the county's-
three cities.
He also finds time to coach
Little League and has devoted
much of his off-duty time to our
youth.
The person who nominated
Ouverson said, "This leadership
role can never have a price tag


nds Heroes are honored


placed on it."
IN Kimberly Ward, a 911 dis-
patcher, was named the
Emergency Operations Hero.
The person nominating her
said, "911 dispatchers are
unsung heroes who provide a
critical link between persons
needing emergency services
and responding agencies that
provide these emergency serv-
ices."
Ward is a model dispatcher
with Highlands County. In her
14 years of employment, she
has received numerous
Wellness awards for attendance
and a Merit Award for outstand-
ing performance. She has taken
numerous continuing education
classes and often provides on-
the-job training to newly hired
dispatchers.
"She exemplifies dispatching
as it should be done," her nom-
ination read.
Richard Gavagni, the
Professional Fire Service Hero
for 2004, has been a member of
the Highlands Park Volunteer
Fire Department for more than
20 years. His call to duty was so
strong that he went back to
school in his 40s so that he
might become a certified EMT,
then a firefighter and most
recently, a hazardous materials
technician.
He is the only state certified
haz-mat technician in
Highlands County and one of
only 82 in the state.
He volunteered to help with
the North Florida Firestorm in
1998 and helped the city of
Arcadia get a start on its recov-
ery after Hurricane Charley.

Tom Ouverson (center) was named County Law Enforcement Hero for 2004. When not working as a
crime scene technician, Ouverson also finds time to coach and mentor youth in the Sebring Dixie Youth
Baseball league. Presenting the award were Sheriff Susan Benton and 'News-Sun' Publisher Ralph Bush.


After volunteering for a
number of years, Lee Andrus
joined Highlands County
Emergency Medical Services as
his chosen career.
He is dedicated to providing
the best possible care on each
and every call. He works hard at
maintaining and increasing his
job knowledge and consistently
works 25-30 extra shifts and/or
special assignments each year.
Andrus has also served a
number of years for the Glades
Electric Co-Op board.
His nomination form read,


"In times of individual or com-
munity need, Lee is the first to
show up to contribute his time,
money or whatever is needed."
Lee Andrus is the Emergency
Medical Services Hero.
E Thomas H. Bellamy was
named the first citizen
Highlands Hero. The person
nominating Bellamy said, "He
gives 100 percent to his job, his
community and the people of
Highlands County."
He and the Progress Energy
crew went in at midnight after
Hurricane Charley hit, dodging


a lot of debris and down power
lines to do what they could to
begin power restoration to
Highlands County residents. '
Bellamy is also a cancer sur-
vivor, having had cancer five
times. He has lost some of his
hearing and lost half of a lung,
but he continues to do what he
loves work as a Progress
Energy crew member.
N Capt. Bobby Hicks has put
his life on the line to save the
life of others many times in his

Four Avon Park police officers were named Municipal Law Enforcement Heroes. There for the presenta-
tion were (from left) City Manager C.B. Shirey, honorees Officer Steve Worley, Detective Jason Lister,
Officer Mike Huften, Sgt. Greg Warner and Chief Frank Mercurio.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun


Sebring Police
Chief Tom
Dettman (left)
presents Sean
Beuford the
Municipal Civilian
Law Enforcement
Hero honor.
Beuford started
work this week as a
sworn officer for
the city of Sebring.


HEROES
Continued from 12A
seven years in the volunteer fire
service.
One of those lives he helped
save was that.of a little boy,
Elijah Crivello-Frazier, who fell
in his grandparents' pool and
was not breathing when he
arrived. Hicks took over giving
the child CPR for a civilian and
helped bring that little lifeless
boy back to life.
"He has demonstrated deter-
mination, sincerity and avail-
ability that make him a true
leader in the community," his
nomination read. Hicks is the
Volunteer Fire Sesvice Hero for
2004.
Sean Beuford was a dis-
patcher for Sebring Police
Department when he rushed
into the home of Jon and
Marsha Bush in May 2004 to
carry Marsha Bush from the
burning house.
Marsha Bush had been
asleep and awoke when she
heard Beuford's knock but went
back to bed after opening and
*losing the door again.
Beuford went into the house,
thinking only of saving Marsha
Bush from the burning struc-
ture.
Beuford started work this
week as a certified police offi-
cer, now patrolling the streets of
Sebring. He received the honor
of being named Municipal
Civilian Law Enforcement
Hero for 2004.
At a time when most
everyone else in Highlands
County was safe and secure as
Hurricane Charley came barrel-
ing through, Sgt. Greg Warner,
Detective Jason Lister and offi-


cers Mike Huften and Steve
Worley were out following a
lead from a TV newsperson that
one of Avon Park's businesses
was being looted.
Flying debris, pelting rain
and heavy wind gusts were not
enough to keep these officers
from making three arrests that
day and keeping one business
safe.
These four Avon Park police
officers were named the 2004
Municipal Law Enforcement
Heroes.
Area Supervisor Tim Elder
was named to receive the
Division of Forestry. Hero'
award.
Elder was quick to respond
in the wake of the hurricanes ...
and not just in Highlands
County. He also responded to
St. Lucie County within hours
after the storms passed to help


distribute water, food and ice.
He also heads West when duty
calls to manage fire fighting air-
craft as he has done for the past
20 years.
He has supervised and imple-
mented a wildfire fuel reduction
program that substantially
exceeded expectations of man-
agement. These practices
affected more than 2,000 acres
in Highlands County for either
prescribed bums or mechanical
treatment.
The Highlands Heroes award
and its ceremony was originally
established in September 2002
by the News-Sun and county
government staff to remember
the victims of the terrorist
attacks on this nation on Sept.
11, 2001, and to take time to
honor our own public safety
officials.

SEBRING With laptops
lined up neatly. one per cus-
tomer, District School
Advisory Council members
became guinea pigs at the
DSAC meeting Feb. 7.
Their challenge was to use
the new software developed by
the district to encourage
parental feed back on the new
Parent Guide.
Presented by Anne Lindsay,
director of curriculum, and
developed by Darrell Layfield,
district resource technology
teacher, the on-line survey is
designed to be user friendly;
simple, quick and efficient.
The goal of the survey is to
provide feedback to the district
as to the usefulness and read-
ability of the Parent Guide.
When implemented, the sur-
vey will be available on-line
through links at each school's
Web site, or the district's Web


site. but Lindsay and Layt
wanted to test run it first, wl
is where the DSAC mem
were put to use. Their resp(
was overwhelming positive
It is expected that the sur
will be up and running so
time in early March; sch(
will notify parents of its av
ability through their scho
newsletters.
Copies of the Parent Gi
will be distributed through
schools, but will also be av
able for download front
school's Web site. Convers
hard copies of the survey
be available at schools for
ents without access to
Internet.
After reading the pare
guide, log onto the site and
out the survey. It consists
simple yes or no questions
has space for suggestions
general comments.
Parental responses
strongly encouraged.

SEBRING During the

York City preparing for his
trumpet lesson with renowned'
.trumpet player William
Vacchiano.
Aguila and Vacchiano
became connected through
Ruth Still Aguila's private
teacher and Vacchiano's former
student. Vacchiano taught Still
at Julliard School and played


for the New York Philharmonic
Orchestra.
"I wanted David to meet Mr.
Vacchiano, who I consider to be
a living legend," Still said.
Aguila admitted to being
nervous about meeting a musi-
ciani of Vacchiano's stature.
"It was an experience of a
lifetime," Aguila said. "I was
thrilled and honored to be in the
presence of such an extraordi-
nary musician."

Thank you, Jim Weed

This month Jim Weed retired from his volunteer posi-
tion as the head of the Heartland Youth Football League.
When he became involved in the league 18 years ago,
the Highlands Youth Football league was only two years
old. Under his direction, the fledgling county-wide foot-
ball league grew to take in youth football teams from
four counties and became affiliated with Pop Warner
Football.
Today, the league has 30 teams that represent more
than 1,000 youth athletes.
After 18 years, Weed has earned the right to step aside.
His successor, Mark Every of Fort Meade, has vowed to
continue Weed's desire that the league emphasizes edu-
cation as well as sports.
Weed's legacy is positive proof of what can be accom-
plished with vision and drive. Volunteers make a differ-
ence every day, frequently without acknowledgment or
thanks, but with the satisfaction of seeing others benefit
from the work they do.
And we are grateful. That's why we can't let Jim Weed
slip away quietly without saying: Thank you for caring
about kids and making a difference in Highlands County.


'Jeni's' a special

dining treat
Editor:
Rarely do we have the
opportunity to enjoy the level
of dining you will experience at
"Jeni's on South Lake." We had
that privilege this past Friday
evening and want to share
some of our observations.
First, you have to admire a
couple who would come to a
small town, especially one that
has suffered greatly from three
hurricanes, and sink their
money and muscle into restor-
ing a store front at 3 S. Lake
Ave.
Secondly. \ou rate a restau-
r nt on threle-4 's -ervice,
f_ tieirs- is Etr3opean or grand;
food, theirs is delicious and
presented like art; and ambi-
ence, theirs is just casual
enough with a touch of ele-
gance.
And finally if you set
your heart on all of the above
and the price isn't right the
evening falls short. You will
not have that worry at "Jeni's."
They have positioned their
prices just right low enough
to get you there and just
enough to serve you the quality
they demand.,
We sat at Chef. Malcolm's
table six of us and spent
the evening sampling creations
such as spinach stuffed arti-
choke hearts, deviled eggs
topped with caviar and slices of
stuffed chicken breast swim-
ming in creamy gorgonzola
sauce until we said, "No
more!"
All of this and an extensive
wine list that will help you
enjoy every morsel.
Mark your calendars now,


give them a call at 453-0034
and make a reservation for a
delightful evening.
After all, the Avon Park
chamber has blanketed our city
with signs and posters inviting
you to "Visit and Shop in Avon
Park." Look no farther.
Gourmet has come to our city
and you will not be disappoint-

Go to Cue Time

for a good time
Editor:
For those of you looking for
a great place to spend some
time, there is a billiards room
here in Sebring.
It is owned by Chuck White
and he runs one of the best pool
halls around. We have visited
several but none match the
quality of Cue Time Billiards.
He cleans the pool balls after
every use and has the tables
vacuumed every night. His
pool sticks are straight and in
excellent condition. That is by
no accident either.
We actually saw Chuck, the
owner, going around and
checking out all of these sticks
and throwing away what was
bent. The atmosphere is pleas-
ant and family-oriented too. We
have seen throughout the year
many families enjoying them-
selves for a few hours at the
pool hall.
If you want to have an enjoy-
able evening for family or even
a date,' you should check out
Cue Time Billiards. We did and
have enjoyed being' patrons
there ever since.

FCAT is too

high a stake test
Editor:
An open letter to the Florida
Senate Education Committee,
Education Appropriation
Committee and House
Education Commitee members:
Although I believe in hold-
ing schools accountable for
successfully educating our chil-
dren, I also believe that you as
a legislator must be held
accountable for what your laws
regarding the FCAT are doing
to our schools and our children.
This test is based on unrea-
sonable and an unattainable
number of Sunshine State
Standards per grade and should
not be the one and only test
used to measure our children's
progress. By making the FCAT
such a high stakes test, you
must accept responsibility for
the "real life" effects of this
decision.
You are putting our students
under such mental stress that
many become physically ill
before and after administration
of the test. Third-grade students
(age 8) are told from the first
day of school that if they don't
pass this one rest they will fail
the grade just a little pres-
sure, huh?
Students spend the first six
months of the school year
being taught to the test and the
last three months worrying
about whether or not they
passed it and will go on to
fourth grade, or in .other cases
graduate from high school.
Schools are altering their cur-
riculum in order to "teach to
the FCAT," often leaving out
basic concepts because "there
isn't time to teach them" until
after this test.
Since you have chosen to
make this such a high stakes
test, maybe you should also
consider establishing funding
to .care for the effects of the
mental and physical stress that
you are creating ini our chil-
dren. Good teachers are run-
ning from "C" and "D"
schools, so where does that
leave our children?
As a parent and a voter, I
expect you to understand and
take responsibility for the
chaos you are creating.
Reasonable standards and mul-
tiple tools for holding schools
accountable would be the com-
mon sense approach. Do you
still have it?
Look at you; it must have
worked for your education did-
n't it?
Perhaps voters should create


an FCAT requirement for legis-
lators in order for them to keep
their jobs every year.
Governor Bush can't be re-
elected, what about you?

Nations don't

like invaders
Editor:
The part of the budget that
Bush does nrot want to talk
about, the cost of the Iraqi war
and Social Security.
Will Iraq form a democracy
after all the loss of life on both
sides. and the huge amount of
American tax dollars? No.
Iraq will go the way of Iran.
No nation likes an invader.
They do,, jltlike, Americans.
-Willt we WBte'the-tax-drain;,
$80 billioA. Again, a perma-
nent tax cut for the top 1 per-
cent.
Are we "short-changing" the
American taxpayer?
Iraq has the second largest
oil reserve in the world. Let
Iraq pay for its own military
and its own reconstruction.
America's infrastructure is
falling apart in all of the states.
Our infrastructures are in
shambles all across America.
The American taxpayer
should demand that America's
infrastructure be a first priority
"our" tax dollars and not a for-
eign interest, worldwide.
George Bush's budget reads
like a comic book.
Without jobs for Americans,
there can be no taxes.
President William McKinley
was staunch when tariffs were
at issue. In a speech in Boston
on Feb. 9, 1888, he insisted:
"Every yard of cloth import-
ed here makes a demand for
one yard less of American fab-
ric. Let England take care of
herself. Let France look after
her own interest. Let Germany
take care of her own people but
in God's name let Americans
look after America."

Stunned at

repeated slurs
Editor:
I recently moved here (about
10 month ago) and have been
received by wonderful, friendly
neighbors and very warm local
folks.
Last night I had the privilege
of performing in a band for the
"Red and White Ball" held at
the Lakeside Playhouse. It was
a very enjoyable night up


until after the Ball.
Our bass player invited me
for a beer at the bar. Once we
sat up at the bar, our order was
taken and then an elderly man
walked up as if he was
announcing to the clientele that
there was a "black guy" and an
"Asian" at the bar. We were
both a bit surprised at his
remarks. But he went on and
said it again we have a
"black guy" and an "Asian" at
the bar and a "queer" behind
the bar (referring to a young
male bartender), all the while
shaking his head in apparent
disgust.
He didn't stop and went on,
but now using racial slurs
(which I shall not bother to
repeat). It was then we walked
out, pretty much stunned at the
whole "incident," On the way
otit," a" ptfo'n stopped us' andi
essentially apologized for this
man's behavior, telling us that
he was a "bitter" man.
I highly doubt that the staff
and management would con-
done this kind of behavior.
However, I was left with the
impression that, at least to the
local patrons, they knew about
him. It is clear to me that this
man needs retraining in an
awareness in multi-culture
diversity.
In this 21st century we are
truly a "global neighborhood,"
I can only feel saddened by the
fact that after serving proudly
for my country to protect free-
dom and the rights we enjoy,
that there are those who take it
for granted, much less to sim-
ply respect one another.

The men

in my life

I am not sure which my son
is most worried about the
FCAT coming up or his first
game Saturday against a real
pitcher.
As a third-grader, Daniel
will be taking the FCAT for the
first time. He has been talking
about it and talking it, getting
on the Web site that his teacher
has told him about to practice,
and still manages to tell me on
almost a daily basis, "Momma,
I'm scared about the FCAT."
I try to reassure him that it
will be OK. All he has to do is
make sure he takes his time to
read the directions and ques-
tions thoroughly, and to answer
the best he can. Not just to look
and assume he knows what the
question is asking and then
guess at an answer.
As for baseball, I just tell
him to think of the pitcher as
only a classmate. Afterall, he's
going to be about the same age
as Daniel or they wouldn't be
in the same league.
Besides, Daniel has been
playing baseball for four years
now. He started with T-ball,
then moved up to the pitching
machine. I don't know about all
of the pitching machines, but I
know one that his team used
from time to time last year was
nothing to brag about. I think I
could have done a better job
getting out there and pitching
to the'boys.
Anyway, he's been enjo\ ing.
'practice and it is good e\ercise
Now if I can just ease those"`-
fears.

We got up Wednesday morn-
ing and had low water pressure.
I checked to make sure I didn't
have any major leaks anywhere
and to make sure the outside
spigots had not been turned on
and left on. Then I checked the
pump to make sure it hadn't
burned up.
When I was pretty sure I had
checked everything I needed to,
I hurried the kids off to school
and put a phone call into my
dad for some advice.
He told me a couple of
things to try and assured me all
would be fine until I got home
after work.
Well, his suggestions didn't
work for me ... but- then I only
had about five minutes before I
had to hurry off to a football
meeting, then had baseball
practice, ... you know the rou-
tine.
When I finally got home
about 9 p.m. Wednesday night,
Dad met me at the house and
within five minutes he had
found the ant that had crossed
my problem, and fixed my
garage door opener.
Aren't Dad's wonderful for
more than just making 'us feel
loved and safe, no matter how
old we are? I know I don't
make a very good "man of the
house," so with my dad living
just across the lake from me, he
makes the next best thing.
*
I hadn't thought about it
until now, maybe that's why
my brother lives in Mulberry.
He doesn't want to have to deal
with my little crisises that I
can't seen to take care of.
Hmmmmmm.

Avon Park lost a good man
last week with the passing of
Joe Franza. I'll always remem-
ber the big man who could take
a young man and turn him into
an awesome high school foot-
ball player, one who would for-
ever love him as a mentor.
Coach Franza was an awe-
some man with a huge heart.
He always had our respect and
our love.

Too many children are 'at risk'


Hate crimes are not going


away


Along the halls and
corridors, in the
classrooms and cafe-
terias of our schools,
walk some unhappy,
unloved troubled
children.
These are the chil-
dren we label as
being dysfunctional
and in need of coun- Poll
selling and or medica- Po
tion ... or positive
parental guidance PAULINP
While this is true,
regardless of how
much counseling that
child receives, if all is not right
at home with momma, if all is
not right with dad ... if all is not
right between momma and the
man who is just passing
through, no amount of counsel-
ing is going to a help that child.
It is therefore necessary for the
entire family to receive coun-
seling.
Many of those children
arrive at school tormented, after
sleepless nights because
momma got a pounding from
dad or live-in boyfriend.
The only place that is sup-
pose to be safe for them is

school.
There are those
students who arrive
T with a chip on their
shoulder, and advice
from parents that "if
anyone hits you, bust
them up." But what
f happens if no one hit
that child, yet that
IS TO child chooses to hit
DER someone ... whether
it is another student
or a teacher, what
Au YANG
should the conse-
quences be?
Trust me, these
children are also aware of the
repercussions and conse-
quences for the injured teacher,
should the teacher react. It takes
a tremendous amount of emo-
tional energy to not react to a
physical assault of any kind.
The child, regardless" of how
old he or she may be, who
assaults a teacher needs to face
disciplinary measures. There
should be no excuses for such
extreme behavior.
I applaud the teachers or any-
one who works with students,
for their patience, their dedica-
tion and their desire to continue


to give support, to continue to
teach, their desire to love
the unlovely, the ones who in
anger smear the walls of the
bathroom with feces with no
regards for fellow students and
staff.
According to a survey car-
ried out by the non-profit
research group, Public Agenda,
82 percent of teachers and 74
percent of parents blame par-
ents failure to teach their kids
discipline. Fifty-eight percent
of teachers nationwide blame
parents who challenge school
discipline decisions.
Whether it's poor discipline
at home or lack of discipline, a
break down in moral or a spiri-
tual decline within the family
structure, our children who are
referred to as "at risk" need
spiritual guidance, strong lead-
ership and love so that they will
be "children with promise."

democracy, the Civil Rights Act
of 1964 and the Voting Rights
Act of 1965.
Yet, in recent weeks several
policy studies and news stories
have underscored how far from
the promised land of equal
opportunity American society
remains.
For example, statistics com-
piled by the FBI indicate that
racial bigotry was the cause of
more than half of the nearly
7,500 hate crimes reported to
the agency in 2003, and that the
2,500 acts of bigotry against
African Americans were far
greater than the number against
any other racial group.
The year's totals, which 'were
slightly above 2002 figures, are
largely comprised of acts of
intimidation, vandalism and
destruction of property. But
they also include a total of 14
murders, more than 2,700

dents of arson,
The federal docu-
ments show that
crimes categorized as
anti-Islamic remained
at about the same level


as in 2002: 149, although some
question whether these crimes
are significantly under-report-
ed. By far, most of the hate
crimes motivated by religious
bias were against Jews: the 927
incidents were about the same
as in 2002.
Spokesmen for civil rights
groups said the figures show a
need for stronger federal laws
against hate crimes as well as
increased Justice Department
assistance to local law enforce-
ment agencies to prosecute such
crimes.
Such legislation passed both
houses of Congress last year but
was tabled when differences in
the House and Senate versions
couldn't be reconciled.
That need takes on greater
urgency when one considers
that the Southern Poverty Law
Center, a respected monitor of
acts of bigotry and extremist
groups and individuals, con-
tends the federal statistics sub-
stantially under-report tie reali-
ty.
Noting that because several
states have weak hate-crime
laws (some don't recognize bias
against sexual orientation as a
'basis for a hate crime) and the
reporting done to the FBI by
local police departments is
entirely voluntary (less than 20
percent of the nation's 11,900
departments do so), the center
estimates the real annual num-
ber of hate crimes is about
50,000 nearly seven times
the federal estimate.
Thus, it's even more alarm-


ing to read that a recent study
by Syracuse University con-
cluded from its review of
Justice Department data that
federal court actions against
violations of civil rights laws
have fallen significantly since
1999 to less than 2,000 -
even as the total number of
complaints has held steady at
about 12,000 a year.
But it's not only government
inaction that causes concern:
Some seem to feel that issues of
race and a commitment to toler-
ance and inclusion now can be
pushed lower on the public
agenda.
Certainly, the most bizarre
example of this was the aston-
ishing vote in November of a.
majority of Alabama's white
electorate to keep language in
the state's constitution mandat-
ing segregated schools "for
white and colored children"
along with language referring to'
the poll taxes that in the era of
segregation were used to disen- -
franchise blacks.
This mean-spirited and
pathetic clinging to the now-.
unused remnants of the anti-
democratic regime of the Old.
South-some of which still litter
several other southern state
constitutions too contrasts
even more sharply to the vision
for America that the Civil
Rights Movement of the 1950s -
and 1960s advocated: one in
which the meaning of such-
words and phrases as freedom
and justice and the pursuit of
happiness are not limited to one
class of Americans but aie a liv-
ing reality that applies to all.

first and second quarters to
establish a commanding lead
and cruised into Saturday's 7

a 57-22 victory.
"We were more focused on

Blue Streaks facing


tough road to state


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Things get a
lot tougher from here on out
for the Sebring Blue Streaks.
All nine Sebring wrestlers
advanced out of the district
meet last week, with eight of
the Streaks making it to their
weight class finals. That kind
of success probably won't be
duplicated in the Region 3-1 A
meet that opens at noon today
at South Florida Community
College.
"We've got nine guys in the


region and I'd say we can get
anywhere between one and
five (to state)," Sebring coach
Dave Cunningham said.
"We've got four guys on the
bubble that have pretty good
draws. If they wrestle well,
they can get there. You never
know, it just depends on who
shows up to wrestle that day."

about as sure of a bet to finish
in the top four and make it to
state as you can get is senior

Senior Softball


Quay pitches Central


Security to 7-4 win


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID World
War II Navy veteran George
Quay spent 38 years delivering
milk in the Philadelphia area
before retiring to Florida.
Retired? Not according to his
teammates on Central Security
(7-3). They will tell you he is
still delivering for them today
in the Lake Placid Senior
Softball Association.
On Monday, Quay pitched
his seventh win and eighth
complete game of the season as
Central Security topped Lake
Placid Marine, 7-4. Quay con-
sistently kept the Mariner hit-
ters off-stride with a baffling
array of inside and outside cor-
ner pitches. The four runs by
L.P. Marine (3-7) was the low-
est total in the league in over
three years.
Yates Insurance (3-8)
dropped two gut-wrenching 10-
inning games. On Monday, they
were one out from victory
against Advanced Mobilehome
Systems (5-6) when Roger
Soriano lined his fourth hit of
the game to plate Pete Ilg and
tie the game in the ninth. AMS
went on to score four more in
the tenth to sink Yates, 16-13.
Ed Engler, Max Hehn, Don
Cunningham and Roger Miller
had key run-scoring hits in the
10th frame. Harvey Jones and
Jim Hensley homered for Yates.
On Wednesday, Gene Cole's
fifth hit of the game, a titanic
blast of Ruthian proportions
over the left-field fence in the
10th inning, proved to be the
winning margin as Lake Placid
Marine bested Yates, 24-18.
Chuck Detore also had five hits
for the Mariners, while Bob
Fox added four more hits. L.P.
Marine apparently regained the
hitting touch that Quay took
from them just two days before.
Also on Wednesday, first-
place Seminole Tire (8-2) rolled
past AMS, 25-13. Leading the
onslaught for the .'Noles was
Glenn Minnick with five hits,
including a double, two triples,
and a home run. Dorin Quigg,
Billy Thompson, Harland
Newby and Dick Harmick all
chipped in with three hits
apiece, while Charlie Bishop
added a round-tripper. Eli
Rivera paced AMS with two
home runs, including a grand
slam.

pumped up. Our team feeds off
of them," Higgins said. "They
just do a great job of handling
the pressure. They kept their
composure tonight, and they
knocked down shots and made
free throws.
"It's hard to believe that
they're only sophomores."
When Lake Placid (20-3) got
within seven on three separate
occasions late in the fourth
quarter, the Messinas were sent
to the line for a trio of one-and-
ones and sunk all six free
throws.
"We're making 50 free
throws in practice each day, and
it's definitely helped in clutch
situations," Higgins said.
Still, the Jaguars were forced
into those spots by a persistent,
rough-and-tumble Lake Placid
effort.
"I'm proud of that. It was just
a little too late though," LeGree
said. "Our press is still work-
ing. You'll see it again next
year."
The Lady Dragons used their

Continued from 1B
Acrobatic 6-foot senior
Weston Brooks was dominant
against Riverdale (5-20), scor-
ing a game-high 16 points,
including a rousing third-quar-
ter dunk. Brooks converted a
three-point play on the Streaks'
next possession to push the lead
past 35 points, causing officials
to go with a running clock by
rule.

Sebring League
In Tuesday's Sebring Seniors
Softball League action at
DeSoto Field, Highlands
Independent Bank prevailed in
the second extra inning for a
14-9 win over the Silent
Salesmen.
The Bank, defending league
champs, could ill afford another
loss if it wishes to successfully
defend its title. The Salesmen
never led during the contest, but
hung tough in order to tie the
game at 9-9 at the end of regu-
lation play. A big five-run
inning in the top of the 10th
forged the Banker's victory.
Garnering three hits each for
the Salesmen were Syd Collins,
Jerry Johnson and manager
Max Glenn. Hitting for extra
bases were Harley Smith (two
doubles), Johnston (double)
and John Huntley (double).
Contributing two hits each were
Marv Knutilla, Smith, Bob
Flack, Huntley and Dick Harris.
For the Bank, Dick Harmic was
the winning pitcher and deliv-
ered a key bases-loaded triple
in the top of the 10th inning.
At Lincoln Heights Field,
Discount Aluminum took the
Yanks down to the wire before
falling, 16-15. For the Yanks,
leading the way with four hits
apiece were Doran Quigg,
Surge Prieto and Ross
Anderson. Adding three hits
each were Don Thomas and
Rudy Pribble. Anderson hit for
extra bases with a double.
At Lake June Field, a third
very closely played league
game resulted in an 18-16 win
for Miller Heating over the
Buttonwood Bay Rebels.
Getting four hits for Millers
was Ralph Gow and adding
three hits each were Bob
Hensley, Billy Thompson,
Howard Carney and Rod
Palmer. Hitting homers were
Jim Hensley, Glen Minnick and
Carney and the winning pitcher
was Stu Geim. For the Rebs,
Jerry Mattis and manager Stan
Turl had four hits. Contributing
three hits each were Tony
Caristo, Jack Grosso and Les
Reib and hitting for extra bases
were Mattis (double), Turl
(three doubles), Caristo (dou-
ble) and Moose Morrissette
(two triples). Bud Scott, Bill
Skonieczny and Don Matthews
were all 2 for 3.


trademark press, forcing 15
turnovers, and a 37-26 edge on
the boards to try to claw back in
the game.
"That's all we talked about
the last couple of days, is
rebounding and taking care of
the ball. We had quite a bit of
turnovers, but if we could have
capitalized on a lot of the shots
we had, putting, them back up,
we could be heading to Boca
Raton or somewhere next
week."
Post Carletta Robinson was
as much of a factor as she's
been all season, scoring 15
points and grabbing eight
rebounds.
Fellow senior Rose Charles
scrapped for 11 of her 15 in the
second half.
"With 50 points on the board,
and the shots weren't falling for
us; just imagine if they were
falling for us, what we would
have had," LeGree said.
The experience was not in
vain, however.
"I think under pressure, it
taught the freshmen some-
thing," LeGree said. "They'll
be ready next year.
Guaranteed."


"He's an athletic kid," Harris
said of Brooks.
Senior guard Greg Perry and
junior forward Luke Birge each
finished with seven points,
while sophomore Brandon
Diaz-Ascani hit on three pretty
jump shots for six points in the
fourth quarter during mop-up
time.
Senior center Kevin Dixon,
added five points while senior
Joseph Aaron and sophomore
A.C. Wilson both had four.

walks in the second game gave Indian River more
than enough help.
"We're to the point where we can't afford to
make mistakes and we made several in the sec-
ond game and it cost us," Falla said.
Indian River (12-6) scored three runs two of
them unearned off Congdon before Morrow
came back onto the field with no outs in the sec-
ond. After Morrow walked two and balked in a
run, Indian River got a three-run double from
Kelsey Zorc to take a commanding 6-0 lead.
Morrow got back in control after that, although
Indian River got three unearned runs in the top of
the sixth, and Falla said the freshman right-han-
der will need time to adjust to her increased work
load.
"Christina's got to get used to throwing a
seven-inning game and then coming back in two
or three innings and being ready to throw again
and that's going to take a little time to develop.
We don't have a choice. We're going to play with
the people we've got, and have fun doing it."

For her part, Morrow believes she's ready for
the challenge.
"I hope so," she said. "All I can do is do my
best and we'll see what happens."
Falla is hoping third baseman Cassandra Green
can return from a thumb injury soon, which
would free up Leslie Brewer to try her hand at
pitching.
"We're going to continue to work with the rest
of them," Falla said. "Ashley, from what we saw
the first day, had the best location and control so
we went with her."
Megan Medley, who worked three hitless
innings to close out the opener, threw a two-hit-
ter for Indian River in the nightcap, giving up a
first-inning single to Congdon and then retiring
13 straight before Morrow doubled to right to
lead off the bottom of the sixth.
Falla said the Panthers helped Medley out by
continually trying to pull outside pitches, hitting
just two balls to the right side of the defense in
the second game.

she did in the back half of the first game and we
got a little over-aggressive."

Domestic violence
can affect anyone
Domestic violence infil-
trates the rich, poor, the
good, bad and ugly, the polit-
ically correct and politically
incorrect, the religious and
the worldly. This plagued
affects every imaginable
relationship. U.S.
Department of Justice reports
one-third of women mur-
dered in this country between
1992-1999, were killed by
husbands, ex-husbands or
boyfriends.
Here are a few examples
of prominent marriages that
went violently sour resulting
into monstrous scandal:
The Rev Glen
Summerford, Holiness
Church preacher, is currently
serving 99 years in prison for
trying to murder his wife,
Darlene, by forcing her hand
into a basket of dangerous
rattlesnakes. The 1992 Texas
case was dubbed the
"Serpent and the Spirit." A
number of books have been
written about this case.
Rabbi Fred Neulander,
prominent religious leader of
the largest synagogue in New
Jersey, was sentenced to life
in prison for the murder of
his wife of 28 years. Leonard
Jenoff and Paul Daniels con-
fessed to the murder, while
stating that they were hired
by the rabbi to do the ghastly
deed. The two also were sen-
tenced to 23-years in prison.
In 1997, millionaire
Allen Blackhorne received a
45-year sentence for the mur-
der of his ex-wife, Sheila, 35.
Her body, which had several
gunshot wounds and a slit
throat, was discovered by the
couple's 13-year-old daugh-
ter while their 2-year-old
quadruplets crawled in her
blood, unaware of what had
happened.
Millionaire Dr. Richard
Sharpe, a prominent derma-
tologist from Boston, con-
fessed to killing his wife,
Karen, and plead insanity. It
was revealed that Richard
Sharpe who murdered his
wife, July 14, 2000, was a
crossdresser who took hor-
mones to develop breast and
even stole his wife's birth
control pills to supplement
himself.
Former Sheriff
Lieutenant Roy Kipp, of
Florida, received a life sen-
tence for murdering his
estranged, wife, Sandra, May
20, 2000. It was revealed in
court that on that fateful day,
he broke into Sandra's apart-
ment and shot and killed her.
In 1996, as Louanne
Scaggs sat playing her baby
grand piano, her husband,
Roger, a beloved church
leader, smashed her to death
with a metal pipe. The dead
woman also was a prominent
leader at the First
Evangelical Free Church of
Austin. Roger Scaggs was
having an affair, but
appeared to have a wonderful
and loving marriage. He is
serving life in prison.
High profile Tacoma,
Wash. Police Chief Davis
Brame killed his wife and
then himself, on April 26,
2003.
The daughter of former
State Senator Jim Lander
was beaten to death in her
car, June 12, 1994. Vickie
Lander Beckham, who was
36 at the time of her death,
was killed by Richard

"God kept telling me to 'Feed my

sheep,' and that's what we've

been doing."

Manna Ministries just keeps giving


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
," hen Thelma Becker, of Lake
SPlacid, felt called upon by God to
/ launch Manna Ministries 10 years
ago, she had no idea how much it
would grow over the years or how many people's
lives would be helped through the outreach.
"I got the vision to do this in 1994," Becker said.
"God kept telling me to 'Feed my sheep,' and that's
what we've been doing."
Manna Ministries is an ecumenical outreach that
has helped countless people in myriad ways and con-
tinues to do so.
"Basically, we are the clearinghouse for all of the
needs in the community," Becker explained. But the
effectiveness of the ministry wouldn't be possible
without the 40 volunteers coming in once a week,
working three to four hours each. There are 10 men
who come in (two per shift) and do heavy work and
pack bags of food and 30 women who do the other
work, such as signing people in at the desk and mak-
ing a file for them; getting food ready, and adding
meat, bread, or miscellaneous items; bagging clothes;
and folding and hanging clothes for display.
When people come to Manna Ministries for help
they are often surprised by what all they can get.
Becker said that if needed they are allowed 40-50
pounds of food per family, as well as blankets, towels,
kitchen items, and 20 or more articles of clothing
depending upon the need.
It is the policy of Manna Ministries to never turn
anyone away regardless of race, creed, or color. "We
try to get an ID of some kind if we can, but we don't
turn anyone down."
People come steadily through its doors every day
during the open hours, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday
through Friday.
"The person who comes for the first time is amazed
because they can't believe we give so much and don't
ask for anything in return." Becker stated. "But God
supplies all our needs. The word says, 'Give and it
shall be given unto you.' "
As Manna Ministries has given, it truly has
received as well. In addition to the house, there are
three sheds for storage which are full most of the
time. Becker regrets that sometimes they have to turn
things down, but said, "The house is small; but we get
a lot done here with such great help. We always have
a dream that we might find a bigger facility. We know
it is such a good ministry that if we had a little more
room we could do even more than we are now."
The assistance Manna Ministries offers is not only
that of providing food, clothing, and other essentials,
but it also does a lot of counseling, advising, and
offering referrals. Additionally, Becker stated, "We
also pray with people and help people with electric
and sometimes rent."
During and following the hurricanes this past sea-
son, Becker said that there were a lot of people who
needed help with their rent. "We paid over $3,000 in
rent. People would ask us for help and we would tell
them we'd pay a certain amount of it if they could
come up with the rest; and they usually could."
Becker, who has lived here for 25 years, knows a
lot of people she can call on to get help for someone
in need.
"Right now," she said, "we have someone helping a
person get their car back in working order; and recent-
ly I called on a lady to send over to a young mother's
home to see what she needed. She had rags in one
window and boards on another because of hurricane
damage and had two children and no heat; but we
were able to get her windows replaced."
One thing that Becker really tries to do is encour-
age men to get out and work for a living. "I'm always.
after the young men who come in here to go to work.
We help them two or three times; but then I tell them
they have to work," she explained.
She told of one man in particular who touched her
heart. "I have one little guy who came up behind me
one day and put his arms around me and said, 'Miss


Thelma, you're gonna be so happy. I now have a job,
thanks to you.' Becker said that he still comes in
from time to time and says, "I'm still working. I don't
need your help," and that he feels good about himself
because he's come a long way.
In addition to the regular day. to day busyness of
helping people, each year at Christmas time Manna
Ministries holds a toy drive Becker refers to as "toys
galore," and every summer they have a school supply
drive to raise supplies for needy students for all four
schools in Lake Placid, from elementary to high
school. This past Christmas Becker said they "really
had a generous out-pouring of donations."
All donations, whether monetary or otherwise, are
given away to people in need. -

'Hitch' brings romance back to the movies


By SHARON JONES
Neu's-Su?)
In an era when love in the movies means
never having to take the time to learn your
partner's name, "Hitch" is a breath of fresh
air.
In Will Smith's first comic outing since
"The Fresh Prince of Bell-Air," love is in the
air, and it's shockingly old-fashioned. It puts
courtship at the heart of romance, and it has
the idea that couples are supposed to find
creative ways to attract each other's atten-
tion. This has the interesting effect of fan-
ning the flames of desire while the daters
decide whether they have enough in com-
mon to take the next drastic step get mar-
ried.
"Hitch" amounts to a collection of dynam-
ic scenes linked together by a weak plot, and
Will Smith is the strongest character in an
ensemble cast rather than the star. But
"Hitch" has electric moments, when charac-
ters connect over witty dialogue and the awk-
ward but charming blunders dating seems to
bring.
Smith's Alex Hitchens is a dating doctor
who coaches men in the art of wooing
women. He teaches men how to dress and
present themselves, and he gives them
advise such as: When a woman talks they
should do things like, oh, listen to her, and
then keep up their end of the conversation
instead of staring at certain attractive body
parts. And he is flatly uninterested in facili-
tating one-night stands for men who view
women as late-night snacks. He may even


'HITCH'
Director: Andy Tennant
Writer: Kevin Bisch
Cast: Will Smith (Hitch), Eva Mendes (Sara),
Kevin James (Albert), Amber Valletta
(Allegra), Julie Ann Emery (Casey) and
Michael Rappaport (Ben)
Released by: Columbia Pictures (2005)
Running time: 1 hour, 55 minutes
Rated: PG-13 for language and some strong
sexual references
Now Playing: Carmike Cinema 6 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

stage acts of chivalry or heroism that will
make the guy get noticed by the girl he
wants.
In a cute scene that sets up the story, an
average-looking actor has a beating heart for
the diva of their play. So when Hitch con-
spires to lure away her dog, where does the
lady find him? In the arms of the actor she
overlooked who appears to have risked life
and limb to rescue her beloved pooch from
traffic. A window of opportunity opens, and
love blooms.
Soon Hitch is met with two challenges of
his own. A chubby junior accountant Albert
Brenniman (Kevin James of "The King of
Queens") wants to win the heart of a beauti-
ful and wealthy heiress, Allegra Cole (Amber
Valletta), who is impossibly out of his league.
And then Hitch falls for a woman of his own,


Sara Melas (Eva Mendes), a prickly gossip
reporter who has given up on men.
The Albert-Allegra courtship becomes
essential to the movie, particularly since it
winningly plays against stereotypes. Albert
becomes an Everyman the nice guy who
doesn't look like Brad Pitt but who may be
worth his weight in gold. At the same time,
the blonde, willowy and fashionable Allegra
proves that she is not a snobbish ice goddess
but a sweet, down-to-earth and insecure
woman who is capable of responding to the
finer qualities in a man.
While everything appears to be going
right for Albert and Allegra, everything is
going wrong for Hitch. The smooth operator
may know all the right moves, but when he
tries to practice them they go all wrong.
The characters start off being familiar
stereotypes, but thanks to the cast they
evolve into likable people. As Hitch, Smith is
a more sophisticated version of his street-
cool but goofy Fresh Prince, and yet as a big
movie star he doesn't try to overwhelm
every scene with his presence. Mendes, a
hard-working actress who seems to be in
three or four movies a year, may find "Hitch"
to be her breakout role. The second-tier
players, James and Valletta, generate sparks
in their own right.
"Hitch" has its down time sometimes,
it's like riding a train that slows down
between connections. Overall, though, this
gentle, feel-good has its head and its heart in
the right place.

LORIDA -The Rockingham
Male Chorus of Shenandoah
Valley, Va., will perform at 7
p.m. Monday at Lorida Church
of the Brethren.
The volunteer 40-voice cho-
rus was organized 39 years ago
by Dr. Nelson Huffman. It has
given more than 1,100 pro-


grams throughout the eastern
United States. It has four active
charter members.
Since 1987, the director has
been David MacMillan, a gradu-
ate of The Shenandoah
Conservatory. His wife, Kathy,
is the accompanist.
Members have a strong


sense of fellowship, togcther-
ness and ministry for the lord.
The purpose of the chorus is to
inspire and share a living mes-
sage in song.
Everyone is welcome.
Admission is free, but an offer-
ing will be taken to benefit the
chorus.


Parable illustrates God's grace and generosity


In the the Gospel of
Matthew, Jesus tells
the parable of the
workers in the vine-
yard.
A vineyard owner
went out at various
times of the day and
hires laborers to work
his vineyard. To the
first hired he agreed
to pay them a denar-
ius for the day's work.
This was the normal
pay for a day's labor.
To each of the others
that he hired at vari-
ous times during the


A MOMENT

WITH GOD

Rev. Richard
Fyffe


day, he promised to pay them
what was right, including those
hired to work only an hour.
When it came time to pay, the
landowner paid each worker the
same: One denarius. Those
hired at the beginning of the day
complained that they had
worked harder than the rest and
deserved more pay even though
they had received their agreed-
upon wage.
It is not at all strange that the
laborers in the parable were
astonished by their wages. Yet
there was no reason for anyone
to challenge the landowner's
right to pay what he wished.
His vineyard was his own, as
was the money with which he
paid his workers. "Don't I have
the right to do what I want with
my own money? Or are you


envious because I am
generous?" (Matthew
20:15)
Jesus began this
parable with the
statement, "For the
kingdom of heaven is
like the landowner."
He is comparing the
landowner to God
and we see God's
ways and thoughts
are higher than ours
as the heavens are
higher than the earth.
We simply cannot
comprehend them all.


So man is quick to
question God's ways when
afflictions come. "It just isn't
fair," he cries. On the other
hand, he may challenge God's
right to show mercy to someone
who in his opinion deserves
punishment. Perhaps it is some-
one who after a life of open sin
has suddenly fled to the arms of
the Savior; or it may be the
weak Christian who is forever
stumbling and returning for
Christ's forgiveness; or it may
even be someone whose man-
ner, speech and dress do not
seem in harmony with the
social climate of the congrega-
tion.
But we are also sinners. Are
we in a position to question
God's grace? We always ought
to remember that it is that same
grace on which our salvation


depends. We can demand jus-
tice of God and be very sure we
will get it. But, before we do,
let us remember what we really
deserve because of our sins, and
what his exacting justice would
have in store for us. The wages
of sin is death.
But thanks be to God that he
has taught us to confess with
the Apostle, "By the grace of
God I am what I am" (1
Corinthians 15:10), to say with
Jacob, "I am unworthy of all the
kindness and faithfulness you
have shown your servant"
(Genesis 32:10).
Question God's grace?
Where, then, is the spirit of
Christ, who ate with publicans
and sinners? Where is the spirit
of those who rejoiced over the
one lost sheep that was found?
Surely God's grace is never to
be questioned, but ever to be
glorified, by our lips and by our
way of life. May we never com-
plain that those who come late
receive the same grace from the
hand of God that we received,
but let us rejoice that they have
come to know the free and full
forgiveness offered by faith in
Jesus Christ!
