Navy predicts



low impact to



water table


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK The U.S.
Navy predicts that live ord-
nance bombing on the Avon
Park Air Force Range may
impact ground water, but not
much.
The Navy is proposing
doing live ordnance bombing
at the range with training
exercises from Navy Carrier
Strike Groups operating
either in the Atlantic Ocean
or the Gulf of Mexico.
Fleet Readiness Training
Programs take place about
three times a year, possibly as
often as six a year, depending
on the state of world politics.
That could mean 60-120 days
of operations each year,
depending on weather and
fire risks.


Local officials and citizens
are concerned about possible
environmental risks from
heavy metals and residues
leaching into the water table
through the soil, wetlands, or
getting into the Kissimmee
River.
The Navy needs that range
because the range at Vieques,
an island east of Puerto Rico,
has been closed after 60 years
of use.
Vieques
The Navy closed Vieques
range after April 19; 1999,
when two mis-aimed bombs
from a jet fighter killed a 35-
year-old security guard at an
observation post. As many as
150,000 people protested in
the streets of San Juan.
See NAVY, page 7A


Range still doing clean

up from World War II use


Range Restoration, Advisory
Board.
Paul Ebersbach, chief of
the Environmental Flight
Wing at the range, said the
process is moving much
faster now that researchers
have been able to bundle two
'or three siLe visits into one
funding request and had rep-
resentatives with the
Environmental Protection
Agency on hand to analyze
the data and verify it quicker.
That means quicker identi-
fication of "hot spots" spe-
cific locations thai need
cleanup, and funding to clean
up those areas.

AVON PARK -
Researchers with the U.S. Air
Force Environmental
Restoration Program are
dealing right now with help-
ing clean up landfills, storage
sites and other potentially
contaminated areas on the
range.
Mike Stevens, restoration
program manager, said there
is concern with contamina-
tion of the soil because, in
Florida, that usually means
contaminated ground water.
"Every base in Florida is
dealing with the same thing,"
he said Tuesday at a meeting
of the Avon Park Air Force

physics and math at South
Florida Community College,
she became a librarian at Fred
Wild Elementary School.
Nine years later she trans-
ferred to Sebring High School,
still a librarian but now called
a media specialist.

The computer age
In the '90s, with the advent
of personal computers, the
school district moved to wire
its campuses. "It was an idea
who's time had come," Smith
said. Everyone was behind it.
Smith was in the vanguard
of this evolution, writing the
grant that brought the first five
computers to Fred Wild. She
was equally excited by the
advent of television in the
classroom, and the creation of
television production classes.
Smith described the heady
optimism of the early'high tech
days. "We felt (the use of com-
puters) was going to be the
great leveling field, where chil-
dren from less advantaged
homes would get a head start,"
she said. "But in the long run, f

SHS culinary students in


training for competition


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING For the past three years, Pat
Hollenberg has been teaching culinary skills to
Sebring High School students. As part of their
learning experience they have competed in a
Florida Restaurant Association cook-off to
demonstrate what they've learned.
This year will be no exception.
"They will have one hour to prepare and
serve a gourmet meal," Hollenberg said.
To help fund the effort, a special dinner is
planned at Outback Steakhouse. For $10, diners
will get a nine-ounce sirloin cooked to order
with all the trimmings.
"Outback has been great; all of the money
will go into the program," she said. The meal
will not be cooked by the students, but they will
be the direct beneficiaries.
The goal is to sell all 150 tickets and raise
$1,500 for the trip to the state competition.
"That pays for hotel, food and the materials
to compete," she said.
The Sebring High School Culinary Program
came out of a visit by members of the Florida
Restaurant Association.
"Some of the FRA people were here as
guests and they told me 'You need to be part of
the Pro Start Program,' Hollenberg said.
So she and Louise Tompkins from Lake
Placid High School decided to become
involved. The teachers have been attending
annual classes at Johnson & Wales University
in Miami for a week each summer as part of
their continuing education.
"Avon Park just got on board this year so

now all of the schools are involved," she said.
Hollenberg has big plans for her students.
She has already conducted tours to the kitchens'
of Universal Studios and Disney. Her next
effort will be to try and arrange a meeting with
famous chef Emeril Lagasse.
, She said her students have shown a great deal
of expertise and inventiveness even though
they have not always been able to get the mate-
rials they've needed.

SEBRING Victoria Yuro,
a senior benefits advisor with
the U.S. Department of Labor's
Employee Benefits Security
Administration, was this
month's guest speaker at Avon
Park's Chamber of Commerce
breakfast, held at the Jacaranda
Hotel Thursday morning.
EBSA protects the integrity
of pension arid health plans,
and other employee benefits for
more than 150 million people.
As an advisor, Yuro, based in
Plantation, answers questions
over the phone, and goes on
out-reach tours. EBSA advisors
answer questions from employ-
ees about benefit plans and
what size companies have to
provide what kind of benefits.
It helps employers to under-
stand what benefits they need
to provide so they can comply
with the law.
At the federal level, EBSA
officials work to promote poli-
cies and regulations that
encourage the growth of
employment based benefits.
It also serves as a watchdog
agency, making sure employees
receive the benefits promised.

Hopton said. "Without long-
standing relationships, it's hard
to move up."
It's also hard to stay. Hopton
has moved eight times in the
last five years for her career. It
was easy to move with no
strong emotional attachments,
but a social network would give
people a reason to stay, she
said.
"People 'stay because they

SEBRING It appears that
yet another restaurant may soon
be moving into Highlands
County. Anew Roadhouse Grill
may s Mogo on an outparcel at
LakeslI Mall.
"It's ofn the piece of property
behind the new furniture store
and the mall," Lake shore Mall

Loy said he had seen plans
for the eatery but to date has no

confirmed that
the restaurant is on track.
"We're planning to open up
in the late summer or early
fall," she said.
Boyajian did not have the
exact square footage of. the
restaurant but she estimated
that when fully operational it
would seat 200-250 people.
The closest Roadhouse Grill
is in Lakeland. Boyajian said
this would be a franchise oper-
ation. It will be the first restau-
rant with which the company
has become involved.
"We thought this would be a
good investment because peo-

thought this would be a good
place for it," she said.

They were drawn to Sebring
because the Boyajian family
owns property on the shores of
Lake Istokpoga.
"We just love it up there. It's
an ideal location to open a fam-
ily restaurant," she said. "It's a

have to have qualified young
people to run them and support
others' needs.
"We want the brightest and
the best," she said. "Without

The Young Professionals'
kickoff event will start at 3 p.m.
Saturday a 'free barbecue

dogs, soft drinks, and a live

bership is directed at those 21-

Hopton said most people she
surveyed who are younger than
21 are still in school or working
their way up. By early to mid-
20s, most young professionals
have solidified their career
choices, even if they are still
working toward those goals.
Young Professionals can then
help them refine those choices
and make time for strong friend
and family connections.
The group will have social
events and professional semi-
nars throughout the year.
Seminars include such things as
financial planning, wellness,


spirituality, and making rela-
tionship and family time. Social
events include regular barbe-
cues, group theater or -sports
event trips and even an annual
nature event with camping, raft-
ing, cycling, hiking or other
outdoor activities.
Young Professionals, or
"YP," is an affiliate of the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, 385-8448. The
group will have monthly meet-
ings/mixers, hosting them at
different restaurants or clubs
throughout the year.

Wally Randall looks for continuity


as new school board chairman


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK In his sec-
ond term of office as a member
of the Highlands County school
board, Wally Randall is now its
chairman.
Looking ahead, he sees a
Time of continuation and con-
solidation.
"Everyone associated with
the school board of Highlands
County is committed to the
delivery of quality education to
every student we can reach," he
said. "It's a whole lot more of
an 'us,' than a 'we' and a
'they'."
Randall wants to focus on
five specific areas in addition to
continuing the general over all
improvement of local schools.
First, he is committed to con-
tinuing to improve the safety of
the schools. There are already
plans to increase lighting on
campuses, and to replace cur-
rent security camera systems
with high definition, color cam-
eras. These changes will begin
in the high schools, and will
eventually include all schools.
Second, he is committed to
continuing efforts to free guid-
ance counselors from some of
their collateral duties, so they
can spend more time advising
students.
For example, Randall points
out that too many students don't
know about many of the schol-
arships and stipends available
from local service organiza-
tions, which can make college
more affordable. Given more
time to advise students, guid-
ance counselors can be instru-
mental in helping a student ful-
fill a dream of a higher educa-
tion.
Randall and the school board
are absolutely committed to
continuing the rapid recovery
from the damage done by last
year's hurricanes. Much
progress has already occurred,
and where possible, improve-
ments have been made to
schools in the course of the
repairs.
For example, the interior of
the administration building at
Avon Park High School has
been redesigned to provide a
better work flow and more
space.
Randall's fourth goal is to
lead the board in seeking certi-
fication. Currently only Donna
Howerton has completed the
process, although the Rev.
Richard Norris is well along the
way.


"I think we get a lot accom-
plished," Randall said. "Each
board member brings strengths
to the table, and that's good," he
said. "The certification is not
because we need it, but because
we can work even more effec-
tively with it."
Randall's point is that in
dealing with state legislatures,
administration officials, and
federal agencies, the more
sophisticated the approach, and
the deeper the understanding of
the various processes, the more
effective a board can be. He
also feels that by going to work-
shops as a group, the board will
increase an
already colle-
gial working
atmosphere.
Finally, the
area Randall
most wants to
improve is the
area of work- RANDALL
ing conditions
for all school board personnel,
whether they work at the dis-
trict office, in classrooms, in
cafeterias, on buses or as sup-
port staff. "He pointed out that
much has already been done in
terms of lessening a teacher's
paper work load, and in explor-
ing ways to bring in more data
entry operators.
"The more time we can allow
a teacher to teach, the better off
the students will be," he said.
Randall also pointed out two
areas of looming challenge.
The first is building enough
classrooms- to meet the new
classroom mandates, and house
the ever increasing numbers of
new students moving into the
district.
"The class size amendment
created a greater demand with-
out stimulating the supply side.
I don't see the incentives," he.


explained.
He added that the problem
went beyond mortar and brick.
"You can build all the class-
rooms that money can buy, but
without enough teachers (and
support personnel) you have
nothing. We need to continue to
work with our legislatures for
more significant commitment.
"We'd do well to remember
(the late) Archie Summers' two
questions (Summers was a
county commissioner for many
years): How much is it going to
cost, and who is going to .pay
for it?"
Because the state is not pro-
viding incentives, it will be& up
to each county to find a wa 1to
finance the new building pro-
grams. Here in Highlands
County the board has 'already
agreed to ask for a half penny
tax increase, which will have a
sunset feature. "
In preparation, the board is,
conducting an exhaustive 4uidit
at each school and will develop
a highly specialized plan.
"When we go to the public
and they ask what the money is
going to buy, we'll be able to
tell them exactly. We will be
precise' and accurate to the
penny. The people have my per-
sonal word on that," Randall
said.
Randall grew up in Florida
and moved to Highlands
County in 1984. He is a gradu-
ate of the University of South
Florida and teaches the GED
program for the South Florida
Community College at its
Hardee campus.
He has always been' very
active in youth activities and
local government, serving three
terms as an Avon Park city
councilman. This is his second
term on the school board; he
intends to run for a third term.

News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County sher-
-iff's deputies have been investigating a case
of Florida driver's licenses and other iden-
, tification obtained with false information.
They have charged Alvin Jerome
Hollinger, 31, of Orlando, with two counts
of unauthorized possession of a driver's
license, two counts of criminal use of per-
sonal identification information, two counts
of forgery on a traffic citation, and two
Orange County warrants.


Bond was set at $8,000 on all of the
charges except a violation of community
control warrant, which has no bond.
One of the false driver's licenses was
issued at 10:57.a.m. March 18, 2004, but
wasn't discovered as false until June 2004.
It had a citation issued to it when deputies
discovered it was false. They enlisted the
help of the Florida Highway Patrol Bureau
of Investigations to discover the alleged
forgery.
When they researched the Social


Security number, it was issued to another
man who lives in Orlando. Hollinger, when
he signed the fake license, committed per-.
jury and forgery, reports said.
Deputies also discovered Hollinger had
obtained a license at 1:25 p.m. May 25,
2001, from the Sebring Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles office.
Again, he allegedly used another man's
Social Security number, this time, a man
from Tennessee. Again, he signed the fake
license, swearing it -was true.

Future classic goes up in smoke


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING John Manus
had dreams for his car, a 1984
Oldsmobile Cutlass, a four-
door, Brougham edition, with
only 72,000 miles.
It had been in an accident and
Manus was expecting a settle-
ment payment sometime in the
next two weeks. He had
planned to put all the money
from the settlement into the car,
restoring it to classic status.
After all, the car was 21 years


old, just four shy of becoming
antique. Manus had plans.
Unfortunately, those plans
went. up in smoke Wednesday
morning.
He had started the engine for
the first time in a while and was
letting it idle, when suddenly it
cut off. Almost immediately
Manus smelled smoke.
He lifted the hood to see that
the engine was enveloped in
flames. At this point he called
911.
The West Sebring Volunteer


Fire Department, under the
command of assistant fire chief
Gene Trumble, arrived within
10 minutes of the call and had
the fire out within the next 20
minutes.

Because the car was located
near the house, and a propane
gas tank was nearby, there had
been. early concerns of an
explosion, however, the fire,
was brought so quickly under
control, those dangers were
avoided.

SEBRING They find joy
in helping others and are dedi-
cated to the cause of which they
believe in, rebuilding lives
through service.
For two weeks, 16 members
of the Family Motorcoach
Association, representing
Florida, Michigan, New Jersey
and Ohio, brave the hot sun,
worked tirelessly and assisted
in building Habitat for
Humanity homes in Highlands
County.
"What is life if you are not
helping someone or making a
difference?" said team leader
Nell Darlington. "Our willing-
ness to help has made us new
friends all over, somewhat like
an extended family ... we have
fun meeting others. We have
satisfaction seeing homeowners
finally realizing their dreams. It
is rewarding."
Nancy Engstom who along
with her husband Bob are from
Whippany, N.J., said being a
part of the team to build Habitat
homes has been a learning
process. "Initially, I couldn't
hammer a nail ... now I can lay
tile and paint. Being apart of the
team gave me the opportunity
to acquire new skills."
Rosemarie McLaughlin
along with her husband Bill of
Old Saybrook, Conn., said this


Habitat house is their 10th
build.
Rosemarie McLaughlin said
as retirees they wanted to use
their retirement in a positive
way by helping others.
"This project is so special to
us, especially when we see the
expressing of gratitude on the
face of those we help ... it is a
wonderfully exhilarating expe-
rience," she said.
A number of the FMA mem-
bers have been involved in the
construction of Habitat homes
for 15 years. Their work con-
sists of 10 six- to seven-hour
workdays, with weekends free.
Many of their members have
prior building experience.
However, each Habitat affiliate
provides an on-site construction


supervisor who is instrumental
in ensuring that plans and local
building codes are followed.
These dedicated team of vol-
unteers not only serve on
Habitat projects in the United
States, but also in Canada as
well. The volunteers who are
not compensated are responsi-
ble for their own personal tools,
work gloves and construction
tools. and work boots. They
also provide their own meals.
The association members are
supportive of Habitat for
Humanity.
To learn more about this
dynamic team of volunteers or
to become a part of their team,

www.fmca-hfh.com.

Robbery suspects plea 'not guilty'


Special to the News-Sun
Just as the "young guns,"
those drivers that are only in
their late teens and early 20's,
dominate the NASCAR races
these days, it is the kids that
dominate the Legends cars as
well.
One looks at Kurt Busch, the
current Nextel champion, and
his teenage brother, Kyle, and
wonders, how did they get to be
so good at such a young age?
The answer is because 6f years
of experience racing in series
- such as the Legends cars.
This weekend's two classes
of racers, Bandoleros and
Legends, will be mainly kids
who have to wait several years
before they will be old enough
to drive to the track. Just
because they are young does
not mean that they aren't good
nor that they do not have years
of experience.
Last year's Rotary Legends
Challenge winner Patrick
Conrad is a perfect example of'
the talent and experience on the
race track today.
Starting in Quarter Midgets,
then Go-Karts, followed by
Legends, he already had 10
years of racing experience


before he was 15 years of age
and the Rotary Legends cham-
pion.
Since winning the Florida
Pro Division Championship last
year, Conrad has moved on to a
Late Model Stock car and has
had an audition in a Roush
Racing Craftsman Truck and he
is only 16 years old.
One of the keys to this suc-
cess 'is the family support.
Walk through the pits week
after week and you will see
dads and sons working side by
side while mom runs errands
and keeps the team together.
Legends racing truly is a family
sport.
As for the Masters, the guys
over 40 years old, they general-
ly aren't leading the race, but
they have just as much fun driv-
ing the car deep into the comer
and trying to beat each other
and get a top 5 or top 10 finish.
For most of the Masters, it too
is a family outing.
Racing the Rotary Legends
Challenge Race this weekend
will be Jimmy Rodriguez who
frequently has his wife and kids
helping in the pits in between
races.
As the "young guns" run up


front, keep one eye on the races
further back in the field, as the
Masters race for a good finish
and remember it truly is a team
sport and the team is called
family.
The Rotary Legends
Challenge is Saturday and
Sunday. Qualifying starts at 6
p.m. Saturday with racing at 7.
Sunday the action gets started at
2 p.m..
Saturday come see some of
the cars that will be racing and
meet the drivers at Duffer's
Sports "Grill in Sebring and
Checkers Drive-In in Avon
Park.

Commissioners turn dirt


SEBRING At 2:30 p.m.
Tuesday, county commissioners
turned over the soil at Windy
Point boat ramp on Lake
Istokpoga for a new boating
and fishing park.
When finished, the 38-acre
site will have two 20-foot-wide
ramps with increased parking
for boaters and their trailers.
County commissioners hope
this will help accommodate
some of the fishing tourna-
ments that frequent Lake


Istokpoga. The county has con-
tracted with KDL Construction
Inc. to include parking spaces
for about 100 boats and vehi-
cles, restrooms, a picnic area,
fishing pond, vegetation buffers
and improved access to the
lake.
The total cost of the project
is $1.3 million. The county has
grants that will bring the coun-
ty cost down to $685,000.
Commissioners approved
$300,000 from recreation.


All four held-

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Four men
accused of the Jan. 7 Avon Park
SouthTrust Bank robbers pled
not guilty in felony circuit court
Monday.
Samuel Etheredge, 16,
Stepfone Vadle Buckle Jr., 16,
Ednol Antonio Hanna 1i, 17,

each been charged as a princi-
,p.l in an armed robbery with a
firearm (grand theft) and face
charges of burglary of a con-
veyance and grand theft of a
motor vehicle.


In addition to that, they carry
enhanced charges under
Florida's "10-20-Life" law,
except for Etheredge, who was
not placed in possession of a
gun.
the armed robbery charges
carry no bond. Each of the other
two felonies carry a bond of
$1,000 each. In court, shortly
after 8:30 a.m. Monday, they
pled not guilty, were offered the
services of the public defend-
er's office and denied bail by
Circuit Court Judge Olin
Shinholser.
So far, the defendants
haven't cooperated with inves-
tigators, said Assistant State
Attorney Joan Hughes. Any
statements are pending meet-


ings with their attorneys.
Each of the defendants have
been ordered to submit to DNA
and fingerprint tests. Until their
trials, they will be held in the
Highlands County Jail. They
have a status conference in late

Beach in Palm Beach County.
The other three hail from West
Palm Beach. The four men are

ing to reports by the Miami

Duffer's to host second HRA Pit Stop


Mighty fine cooking'


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING For the second
year in a row members of the
Heartland Riders Association
will host a pit stop for riders on
their way to Bike Week in
Daytona.
This year, the festivities will
be done in a new location, at
Duffer's Sports Grille, 6940
U.S. 27 North.
"We had a good first event
down at the American Legion
Hall in Lake Placid last year but
Duffer's is on the east side of
the road and that should make it
easier for the northbound riders
to get in and out," said HRA
President Lane Bradford.


He estimated there might
have been as many as 1,000 rid-
ers who stopped by their inau-
gural effort last year and said he
hoped for more this. time
around.
In addition to the burgers,
wings and pizza that will be
available for the hungry riders
on their way to the East coast,
Bradford has set up a battle of
the bands. At stake is a slot at
the upcoming Run to the
Heartland Sept. 30 to Oct. 1.
"The intent is to have the
bands that were interested in
playing then do a set or two at
this event," he said.
Among those set to perform.,
are Quickfire, Ed Barnaby and


Off the Cuff.
Bradford said the original
event drew mixed reviews for
some of the entertainment.
While some of the groups put
on a good show, the organizers
said they had been less than
pleased with some of the other
performers.

"There's going to be some
major improvement this year,"
he said. "People will have a
chance to vote on the bands
they like Saturday."
In addition to the food and
music, Bradford said there
would be a number of vendors
set up behind the sports grille
and a membership drive.


"We'll have a leather shop
there and some other things,"
he said. "I think the Wredes will
be there, with their eagle. That
was a big hit at the Circle last
year.

While the HRA volunteers
will be providing a service for
their two-wheeled friends,
Bradford said he hoped to use
the event to let people know
that they will be having their
motorcycle rally again this year
in downtown Sebring.

The pit stop is co-sponsored
by the HRA and Duffer's Sports
Grille from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday.


NAVY
Continued from 1A
Scientists conducted studies
at Vieques range and found
heavy metals in the crabs, fish,
and people of the island.
Mercury levels, for example,
werp,, higher than the
Environmental Protection
Agency allows, in 33 percent of
those tested.
According to a report by
Smithsonian in January 2004,
the EPA has cited the Navy 102
times for water quality viola-
tions on Vieques. The Navy dis-
putes these links and its own
study showed that explosives-
related pollutants could not
make their way to civilian areas


eight miles west of the island
bombing range.

Avon Park
Right now, the Navy is look-
ing at replacement bombing
sites at the Avon Park range.
One at the northern border is
called Fox-trot. One in the cen-
ter is called Alpha; at the south
edge is Echo.
Range Commander Lt. Col.
Franklin "Stamp" Walden said
the Air Force is cooperating
with the Navy to provide infor-
mation.
"Our job is to provide data
(to the Navy)," he said.
"They'll analyze it."

Water
The Navy's environmental
impact statement looked at how


much ground water damage
could happen in 10 years from
bombing, cannon fire and
small-arms fire on the range. It
said concentration for high
explosive residue would not
exceed standards for surface
water set by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.
One type of high explosive
residue called RDX a car-
cinogen might leach into the
groundwater at levels high
enough to warrant clean-up.
The Navy said there is no drink-
ing water standard for it,
though.
In a worst case scenario, nei-
ther aluminum, chromium, nor
nickel would leach at levels
higher than allowed, the Navy
said. Aluminum and chromium


might exceed benchmarks for
certain soil types, but the Navy
calls the benchmarks, conserva-
tive and suggests laboratory
models may not reflect what
actually happens in the field.
Since ground water at bombing
sites on the range is not listed or
used as potable, the Navy sus-
pects humans won't be affected
very much.
About 116-482 acres of wet-
lands on the base could be
impacted by displaced soil and
destruction of wetland habitats
when the Navy builds targets or
construct roads to and from the
specific bombing areas, the
impact statement said.

Some information for this
story came from "Smithsonian
Institution magazine.

Dr. Bill Jernigan gets a chance to sit down and sample some of
his handiwork at the annual rotary Spaghetti Dinner on
Wednesday night at the Highlands County Fairgrounds.
Jernigan said the Rotarians served several hundred dinners.


Navy hosts open house meetings


Next week the Navy is plan-
ning a pair of meetings to dis-
cuss their Environmental
Impact Study with area resi-
dents concerned about plans to
begin the use of live ordinance
at the Avon Park Air Force
Range.
As a precursor, there will be
an open house at the range
Friday from 1-3 p.m..


It will be held in Building 77
which will be in the back of the
range property, past the range
fire station on Kissimmee Road
and South Boulevard intersec-
tion
Navy representatives will be
on hand as well to answer ques-
tions and direct people to next
week's public hearings in Avon
"Park and Sebring.


SEASON
Continued from 1A
divider than a leveler. It didn't
take long for the more finan-
cially advantaged homes to
buy-personal computers for
their children, and today many
kids still enter high school
without having been exposed
to computers."
Smith was one of the many
people key to bringing the
Internet to Sebring High
School in the mid.'80s, .
She and her husband visited
30 schools throughout the
country to look at their pro-
grams and learn from their
experiences.
"The benefit to the student
has been outstanding. The
majority of teachers make use
of the information," she said.
"It still takes a teacher to lead
the student through the
process; how to make choices;
how to stay off the garbage.
The computer itself does not
teach. It is only a tool."

Unintended
consequences
Computers turned out to be
a two-way street. Not only did
they bring a world of informa-
tion to the students, they pro-
vided an avenue of information
from the classroom to school
administrations and parents as
well.
Again, there were unexpect-
ed consequences. Originally
thought to be a time saver for
teachers, computers have
added to their work load as
more and more information is
expected to be posted faster
and faster.
"The reality is that (the


computer) has become a bigger
burden on the teacher. 'Why
can't you tell us how many
pages a student has read?' they
want to know. It has really
added time instead of decreas-
ing it," Smith said.
Smith leaves the profession
still filled with hope about
young people, who read as
much now as ever before. But
she worries about her fellow
teachers who she says are feel-
ing more burdened with every
passing year.
"I'm really concerned about
the future of these people who
teach. There's such an empha-
sis on testing and scoring, it's
placed a tremendous pressure
on teachers and students." she
said. "There's a lot of burn out.
I wish technology could solve
the problems, but it can't solve
the human problems that exist.
I don't want to sound nega-
tive," she added, "there are
some wonderful kids in school
who have wonderful parents. I
feel good about the positive
things that have happened."

Teaching art as
self-expression
Peggy Hogarth graduated
from Drake University and
started teaching art in Fairfield,
Iowa, in 1966. She traveled
from school to school, some of
them tiny, working out of her
car and the occasional closet. "
She arrived in Sebring with
her husband, Richard who
also has just retired as the busi-
ness director of.the Avon Park
Correctional Institute, and
began teaching art at Sebring
High School in 1979.
Hogarth's eyes light up
when she talks about art.
"The field has grown


tremendously," she said, "and
there are hundreds of careers in
the field.
"Everything we purchase
was designed by someone,
including its packaging. Art is
a huge industry. For example,
every car is carved out of clay
(before it is put into produc-
tion). It's the artist, not the
engineer, who does that.
"More important is the
enrichment art brings to the
lives of students -- an aware-
ness making them more than
just spectators. They take what
isn't, and make what is.
"It's the only subject where
students are completely cre-
ative. A child who has never
been able to please a teacher,
can suddenly do something
right.
"They become more .alive to
the world visually. I hope I
have created problem solvers
and creative thinkers."
While a performing art cred-
it is required in high school,
she worries that art is some-
times neglected; only one ele-
mentary school has an art
teacher and only one middle
school.

Concerned about
the future
She also worries about her
fellow teachers. She has seen
changes in attitude rather than
in programs. "You see cycles,"
she said, and right now the
emphasis is on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test. "The focus is on training
for the FCAT. I see a lot of
teachers, who have so much
more to offer students, just
plugging away at those FCAT
skills.
"There is a strong tendency


from our county office, an
assumption, that there is a best
way of teaching. I hate to see
mandates that try to make
every teacher a square peg in a
square hole; that discourage
differences and teacher flexi-
bility. How can you encourage
a child to stay in school when
you don't give them things
they love to do?"
She counts herself fortunate
that the Sunshine State
tjandards in art are loose and
open to interpretation.
Hogarth is optimistic, how-
ever. "I have absolute faith in
the future," she said forcefully.
"I think we in this county still
have a very caring family unit
behind most of our students.
Parents still take an interest
and it shows in their children."
She paused and then smiled,
"I learned not to judge
teenagers by what they looked
like. I had a student with hair
down the middle of his back,
earrings to his shoulders, wear-
ing studded leather. He told me
there was a movie I should see.
I was expecting him to say an
action picture, but instead he
said "Steel Magnolias." It's not
about what they look like on
the outside. I'll always love
teenagers."
"My tenure at Sebring High
School has been wonderful; the
teachers are terrific. I'm not
leaving burned out or disgrun-
tled, (teaching) has been an
extreme pleasure for me. I
have to thank the community
for giving me some of the most
wonderful young people to
have passed through my life.
I'm leaving only because I can.
I've taught people how to paint
for years and years; I'm going
to do my own painting now."

the lead on using background
standards to measure relative
damage to the soil and environ-
ment. This, in turn, helps clear
sites off the cleanup list.
Walden said that move with-
in the EPA gets closed sites
reopened so the Air Force can
start using them again.
Otherwise, the sites are federal-


CULINARY
Continued from 1A
At last year's competition,
for instance, they picked a
design for an edible center-
piece. Hollenberg said com-
pared to the competition it was
not the fanciest, but its simplic-
ity caught the eye of the judges.
"I was listening to the chefs
and they said 'This is so perfect
for us, because we have to do
1,000 tables at a time and we
have to get those centerpieces
done in a hurry,' she said.
One of the chef/judges later
came and spoke to the class. He
arrived with an assortment of
fruits and vegetables to demon-
strate cutting and placing tech-
niques.
"It was so exciting to have a
chef from Universal Studios
here and by the end the kids
were busy practicing and cut-
ting," she said.
The culinary class is plan-
ning to hone their skills on
some of the high school educa-
tors by providing a faculty din-
ner next Thursday.
"This is both the culinary
class and the basic class," she


ly held unused vacant lots.
As landowner, the Air Force
has the responsibility to clean
up contaminated areas, said
Range Commander Lt. Col.
Franklin "Stamp" Walden.
Many of those areas date back
to World War II. Cleanup proj-
ects for fiscal year 2005 under
the restoration program, which
includes remedial design work,
remedial construction, or long-
term monitoring, adds up to $1
million.


said.
The idea will be to transform
the classroom into a facsimile
of a restaurant aboard a cruise
ship. Hollenberg said she was-
n't certain whether it would be
a set menu or a buffet.
"We did a buffet last time
which was nicer, because peo-
ple could try a little bit of
everything we made," she said.
The students will serve as the
maitre d', chefs, drink hostesses
- even dishwashers and dryers
for the event.
"They all have job titles,"
she said.
Hollenberg said as much as
anything it has been time con-
straints that have kept her from
doing a formal dinner.
"Teachers have 30-40 min-
utes. Otherwise we could do
salad bar, dinner and dessert,"
she said.
Some of Hollenberg's teach-
ing already is bearing fruit. One
of her former students, Sergio
Guadelupe got a job at
Chicanes in Sebring after grad-
uating from Johnson & Wales.
"There are some others that
have been accepted at other
culinary colleges as well," she
said.

Off the Cuff plays for cancer benefit


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SEBRING
B y day one is an auto mechan-
ic, one installs screen enclo-
sures, one works in golf
course maintenance and the
other is a chef. By night they make up
Off The Cuff, one of Sebring's hottest
bands.
And on March 11, Off The Cuff will
be doing one of the gigs they love the
most helping bring awareness to the
American Cancer Society.
Some of the band members learned
to love music because of a parent's
involvement, one is schooled, the other
is self-taught. For the last three years,
the band has been making its love of
music work for different charities by
putting on fund-raising concerts. Of
course, the musicians also work their
regular gigs, like March 4 and 5, when
they play at The Why Not Lounge.
Ray "Speedy" Gonzalez, one of the
lead singers, described the band as a
"giving" band. "We do the gigs, but we
love an opportunity to help also," he
said.
The band recently helped raise
$116,000 for the American Cancer
Society in Polk County. They have also
played for non-paying groups that just
make the band feel good for doing a
good deed like Kids Night Out at
Fred Wild Elementary School and for
the residents of Crown Pointe.
Gonzalez grew up in Brooklyn and
moved to Sebring in 1994. His father
was a percussionist and once played
with Ricky Ricardo. His brother plays
in a band that opened recently for rock-
er John Fogerty.
In fact, it was Speedy's brother who
designed the band's logo a charac-
ture dressed in stripes and handcuffed.
"It means don't be a prisoner of your-
self. No hatred, no lies, just be your-
self," Ray Gonzalez said.
Flor Gonzalez, who is not related to
Ray Gonzalez, grew up in Chicago. He


moved to Sebring in 1999. He is anoth-
er of the lead singers in Off The Cuff
and is a self-taught bass player.
Gary "G-Dog" Gibbs moved to
Sebring in the 1970s from Monroe
County, La. He is a schooled drummer.
His father played in various bands, one
of them for Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Rounding out the band, Kevin Fisher
plays rhythm and lead guitar. Fisher, the
shy one, is self-taught and moved here
in 2000 from Oxford, England.
"We all have a lot of flavor. It's a
good combination," Ray Gonzalez said.
In the three years the band has been
together, they have played a wide vari-
ety of music Santana, Stevie Ray
Vaughan, Ozzy Osbourne, Lenny
Kravitz, Sugar Ray, Chuck Berry, 3
Doors Down, Deep Purple, Uncle
Kracker, Wild Cherry, Eric Clapton,
AC/DC, Los Lonely Boys, Bob Marley,
Shaggy, Led Zeppelin, Lynard Skynard
and Buddy Guy.
"We play a little bit of the old and lit-
tle bit of the new. We play a bit of
everything," Gonzalez said. "We are a
people's band. They used to call us the
party masters because we can play such
a variety. If you hear something you
don't like, by the time you turn around
to leave you'll hear something you will
like."
Most importantly, Gonzalez said the
band is proud of his patriotism. The
recently wrote a song, "Free," for the
troops.
"The troops are over there dying for
our freedom. I would gladly give my
life for any one of our troop members
over there for an 18-year-old over
there," said the veteran who served in
1979 when Iran took American
hostages.
The band does travel some on the
weekends, but is open for birthday par-
ties, anniversaries, geat-oeeihers jnid
charitable events. To book the band,
call 414-2040 or 214-6780.

Lead router being introduced by


Coldwell Banker Highlands Properties


Real estate

inquiries
answered quicker

SEBRING One of the
changing trends in the real
estate business has been the
increase in speed at which con-
sumers ate expecting informa-
tion to be provided about prop-
erties that are for sale.
Surveys conducted by the
National Association of
Realtors have demonstrated that
nearly 75 percent of today's


home buyers begin their search
for properties using the
Internet. However, nearly 50
percent of those inquiries go
unanswered for more than 48
hours. The solution to this
dilemma is being introduced in
the Highlands County market-
place by Coldwell Banker
Highlands Properties, a tech-
nology tool known as lead
router. It will enable consumers
who find properties that they
are interested in to make an
inquiry online and that inquiry
will be transmitted directly to a

More work should


equal more meetings

Slightly more than a decade ago, the Lake Placid Town
Council met three times a month at two regular meet-
ings and one workshop.
The council decided the workshop was not needed but
stuck with its two regular meetings. A little more than a
year ago, the council's work load inexplicably dimin-
ished. The first monthly council meeting rarely lasted
beyond a few hours, and frequently the second was can-
celed for lack of business to conduct. At that time, the
council decided to adopt a schedule of meeting once a
month.
In recent months, the council's work load has been
picking up. Meetings that begin at 5:30 in the afternoon
are running until 10 and later.
Most people would have a difficult time ending a
working day only to face another four to five hours of
work. That's a problem for the council members, too. As
the meetings drag into the night, council members com-
plain of being tired and show exasperation when trying
to concentrate on the issues before them.
That's understandable, and yet they were elected, and
are being paid to do the public's work. The public should
be able to have the confidence that the council's deci-
sions are being made thoughtfully and wisely, and not
haphazardly by tired people who are yearning to go
home.
The length of the meetings is a burden for the public,
too. Citizens who have only a few minutes of business to
conduct may find themselves waiting three hours or
more. For elderly people or business people who have
work the next day, that wait becomes a hardship.
When meetings become so long that they are a misery
for the council and the citizens they are serving, then the
solution is simple: It's time for the council to go back to
its former schedule of meeting twice a month.

Are credit cards

companies right
Editor:
Recently prosecutors in San
Francisco were investigating a
large bank for stealing from its
credit card customers. The
prosecutor was told that only
the U.S. Comptroller of the
Currency can prosecute nation-
al banks, the state has no juris-
diction. That is news to the
lawyers. All 50 state attorneys
general apparently disagree
with that claim. Does the Bush
administration favor state's
rights or not?
The Better Business Bureau
says that complaints about
credit card companies, which
are banks, have now topped all
other consumer complaints.
That ought to get someone's
attention. Since the comptroller
denies that state attorneys gen-
eral or county prosecutors can
prosecute a bank, you might
think the comptroller has some
prosecution planned,
Apparently not.
The Bush administration's
comptroller of the currency is
Julie Williams. She claims to
have resolved the matter the
San Francisco prosecutor was
concerned about to everyone's
satisfaction. The only purpose
of her claim that no state can
prosecute a bank is to make
sure that no bank is ever held
accountable for anything.
This information is on a
recently PBS "Frontline" pro-
gram with the harmless title
"History of the Credit Card." It
is available online at
www.pbs.org. wgbh/pages/front
line. We learn that the law puts
no upper limit on late fees,
which used to be as low as $5.
Historically, Americ'ans have
been protected by usury laws
but credit card companies have
evaded them by locating states
which have none.,
As "Frontline" points out,
most consumers have no idea
what federal agency is sup-
posed to protect them in deal-
ing with credit card companies.
They list five federal agencies
that might be involved. Why
not list the relevant agency on
credit card bills? Is someone
afraid that might work?

Never forget the

Iwo Jima battle
Editor:
This month there have been
many reports, articles and fea-
tures on TV and in print about
the Battle of Iwo Jima, which
-was 60 years ago this month,
including a very good, though
short, piece on NBC Nightly
News on Feb. 21.
One of the smallest pieces of'
land, a very small island of vol-
canic rock about 2 1/2 by 5 1/2
miles in the Pacific Ocean 660
miles south of Tokyo, Japan, it
was, also the most expensive
with about 6,000 Marines
killed in that battle.
Through the years, many


stories, a few movies and a few
songs have been written about
that major World War II battle.
One of the most recognizable
pictures to be found anywhere
is the great still picture of that
flag-raising by Joe Rosenthal, a
news photographer. Six men
(five Marines and one Navy
man) raised that flag. There
was a country song many years
ago which said, in part, "When
the Yanks raised the Stars and
Stripes on Iwo Jima Isle,
through the blood and tears
they won through. Bless the
heart of each Yankee there on
Iwo Jima Isle resting neathh a
blanket of blue."
Of the six men who raised
that flag, the Navy man and
two Marines came home. One
of the Marines, Sgt. Ira Hayes,
was a Pima Indian from
Arizona, who lived a very hard
life back home arid did not live
to be an old man. None of the
reports that I have seen or read
mentioned the fact that this
Marine was the subject of "The
Ballad 'df tM Hayes," a song,
written by one P. LaFarge and
was recorded on March 5,
1964, by the great Johnny
Cash. A lot of true history in
that ballad: "Call him drunken
Ira Hayes, he won't answer
anymore. Not the whiskey-
drinking Indian or 'the Marine
that went to war."
That battle in February 1945,
just like the Pearl Harbor attack
in December 1941 and the ter-
rorist attack on our own coun-
try in September 2001, must
never be forgotten.

Find the good

around us
Editor:
It seems to me many people
complain about many different
things, but I wanted to spread a
little positive attitude around.
I just spent 10 days in the
local Highlands Regional
Medical Center and let me tell
you, I couldn't have been in a
better place for the wonderful
recovery I experienced.
I had two great doctors, Dr.
Ike Lee and Dr. Bhatt, a lung
specialist. Then came all the
nursing staff, respiratory, x-ray,
emergency room and many
other deliartments too numer-
ous to mention. But a big thank
you from me to all of you folks
at the hospital. That certainly
includes the kitchen help and
food service. I do not have one
complaint on the food that was
served to me. There were times
I didn't eat but not because it
wasn't good, I wasn't hungry.
We all need to start finding
the good around us and -not
always the bad. All the staff
work very hard to keep the
patients happy and to get them
well. So let's all be more thank-
ful for the wonderful people we
come in contact with from day
to day.


Lions' Candy

"Our job as Lions, is to find

How does the idea of live
bombing at the Avon Park
Bomb range concern me?

Our terrorist enemies have
chosen to strap explosives to
their bodies and commit sui-
cide to murder women and
children.
They hijack our airliners and
fly them into buildings to kill
thousands of innocent
Americans.
They kidnap Americans and
cut their heads off.
They are plotting to use
chemical, biological, and
nuclear weapons to kill mil-
lions of innocent Americans.
These people are ruthless
killers dedicated to.the destruc-
tion of our country and our way
of life. We need well trained
airmen to defend us and take
the fight to our enemy.
I read in the News-Sun that
people who have purchased
land near an active bombing
range that existed decades
before, they purchased their
property have had their win-
dows rattled. Duh ... what a
surprise!
Then I read that the use of
the .bombing range may stop
our northern guests from com-
ing. Have you driven on'U.S.
27 or tried to park at Wal-Mart
lately?
I read that the use of the
bombing range could stop the
rush to mimic Broward County
envisioned by the developers
and fast buck artists. Baloney!
While I am not a self-pro-
claimed real estate expert and
ex-mayor from Ohio, I, have
been, a Florida 'resident for
more than 50 years and have
seen the cost of real estate dou-
ble locally in less than 10.years.
Then, of course, there are
those concerned about a 2,000
pounder coming through their
bedroom window. Military air-
craft have been flying missions
around here for more than 50
years without a major incident
to civilians, although it is possi-
- ble.
No one is asking the citizens
of Highlands County to pick up
a rifle and defend their coun-
try.
Our military is asking to
increase the use of the Avon
Park range, mostly in Polk
County, to train our airmen
(OUR Air Force and Navy) to
defend us. I doubt that they
really have to ask; they are try-
ing to be good neighbors. We
should roll out the red carpet
and welcome them.
Every time I see an F-16 or
F-18 headed towards the range
I look up, smile and wish I
were up there with them.
Every time I hear a sonic
boom or the distant sound of an.
afterburner kicking in, I smile
because that is the sound of
freedom. However, freedom is
not free it has a cost.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
Feb. 24, 1995: Avon Park
used a three-run seventh-
inning rally to beat Hardee
in the Early Bird
Tournament championship.

15 Years Ago
Feb. 24, 1990: After win-
ning the Early Bird
Tournament the week
before, Avon Park survived
a 12-inning title-game clash
with host Sebting in the
Haycock Equitable.
Invitational Tournament.
Gabe White struck out 14 in
11 innings of work for the
Blue Streaks, but the Red.
Devils took advantage of his
departure in the 12th, scor-
ing the winning run on a

Class 1A State Wrestling Finals


Germaine only Blue Streak still standing

McCreary, McGovern both eliminated on first day ...


By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKELAND There's no substitute for first-
hand experience. Just ask Blake Germaine.
Sebring's 145-pound senior almost lost to
David Deaton of Panama City-Bay in the first
round of last year's state finals, nearly getting
pinned twice before rallying in the final period .to
win on the way to a runner-up finish at 140
pounds.
When the two met again Thursday in the open-
ing round of this year's state finals at the
Lakeland Center, there wasn't nearly as much
drama as Germaine controlled the match from the
start for an 11-5 victory.
Wrestling Deaton last year was a big help this
time around, Germaine said.
"I knew exactly what he was trying to do from
the bottom and I didn't let him get it," he said.
"As soon as I got in a little bit of trouble, I let him
go and got back up on my feet. I didn't want to
risk getting turned from the bottom."
Deaton gave Germaine three points by mistak-
ing a whistle on a nearby mat for one from his
match's referee. The first time it happened,
Deaton got up and walked back to the center of


the mat, allowing Germaine to get a takedown
and two points to help him build a 7-2 lead after
two periods.
"He thought it was another whistle and he
stopped," Germaine said. "The.ref said, 'Keep
going,' and I was like, 'OK, his back's turned, but
I'm going to keep going.' Oh well, it's a free
takedown."
Deaton managed to get the match to 7-4 before
Germaine scored two takedowns late in the final
period to seal the win. Germaine (45-2) will face
Marvin Johnson (43-3) of Zephyrhills a 5-4
winner over Jehud Presume of Fort Lauderdale-
Cardinal Gibbons in the quarterfinals this
morning. A win would put Germaine into a tie for
the season victories record that Joe Stump set last
season.
It was a short state meet for the other two
Sebring seniors who qualified, as both Dillon
McGovern and Brian McCreary lost two matches
on Thursday.
McGovern's opening match against Carlos
Friger of Miami-Archbishop Carrol in the 160-
pound bracket ended strangely when McGovern

Class 4A Boys Basketball State Playoffs



Spartans stop Streaks


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING After three
quarters of momentum swings,
St. Petersburg Lakewood final-
ly kept the Blue Streaks from
rallying.
After watching leads of 8-0
and 22-10 dwindle to a 37-36
advantage late in the third
quarter, the. No. 4 Spartans
n.,.scored the lit eight, points ,of
;' the period'afid role'thfit run to
a 56-45 win at No. 8 Sebring in
the first round of the Class 4A
playoffs.
"I think right before half we
had an 11-point lead and felt
comfortable with that, and we
look up and we're coming into
halftime up by four,"
Lakewood head coach Dan
Wright said. "And the game
kind of stayed that way until,
we made that switch with
(Sean) Morrison
kewood on their big guy,
and the game
5 kind of changed
Sebring a little bit after
M5 that"
4 While the
Spartans (28-2)
had held Sebring's starting
frontline, all' seniors, to three
total points midway through
the third quarter, foul trouble
persuaded Wright to try the 6-
foot-3 senior Morrison down
low, and the move paid off.
"We switched Morrison to
their post men on the inside,
which allowed for him to actu-
ally rebound the ball and start
our fast break," he said. "Once
we did that I think we scored
three consecutive times and
went up by nine."
Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris lamented his
team's inability to deliver to
posts Kevin Dixon and Joseph
Aaron against the Lakewood
press.
"If we could have estab-
lished that, we could have
done a lot of what we wanted
to do," he said. "We just didn't

get (Kevin) the 'ball. Joe, we
just didn't get Joe the ball.
They were applying a lot of
pressure, so it was up to our
guards to try and penetrate and
get a dish-out or something."
Nonetheless, the coach


praised the effort of his 22-6
club which at one point won
11 straight this season and
in particular its seniors. One of
those upperclassmen, Greg
Perry, was the focal point of
the Sebring attack for most of


the game, and scored all of his
game-high 16 points'in the first
three quarters.
"Greg does a heck of a job
for us," Harris said. "He's been

Remember


the Tigers

High school sports in
Highlands County these days
means Avon Park, Sebring,
Lake Placid and private
schools Walker Memorial
Academy and Heartland
Christian.
One other name deserves
mention with these schools -
the Tigers of E.O. Douglas
High School in Sebring. In the
segregated days of our county,
E.O. Douglas was the high
school for African-American
students.
The Tigers had some great
baseball teams. They won a
state championship and they
had a future major league all-
star in Harold (Hal) McRae.
Of course, they also played
football and basketball. One
athlete on those teams was
Frank Lyons, Avon Park High
School dean of students.
Lyons said he has spoken to
some classes this month as
part of Black History Month.
"For our seniors, this (segre-
gation) was more than 20
years before they were born.
They find it hard to believe
that at that time the town had
just two races, black and
white," he said. "Today we
also have Asian-Americans
and Latin-Americans.
"Kids usually ask 'Were you
mad or upset about how things
were?'
"That is just the way it was.
You had no alternative."

Maserati to run 12 Hours

Maserati will again grace the track at this year's Mobil 1 12 Hours
of Sebring. The MC 12s will be fielded by AF Corse with support
from Risi Competizione. The cars will run in the GT1 division with
Aston Martin, Corvette, Ferrari and Saleen.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's the rumor
that has been causing specula-
tion throughout the sportscar
world for months, now it is con-
firmed the Italian trident will
be racing at historic Sebring
International Raceway in
March.
Officials of the International
Motor Sports Association have
announced they have invited
Maserati to enter the MC 12 in
the American Le Mans Series.


It will debut at the Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring, and company
officials report they plan to
field the car for the full ALMS
schedule.
The last time a Maserati won
at Sebring was in 1957, when
world champion Juan Fangio
drove it to victory. In fact,
Maserati is the only foreign
make to win both the Sebring
12 Hours and the Indianapolis
500.
The entry of the Maserati in
the GTI division with the Aston


Martin, Corvette, Ferrari anc
Saleen may make the Sebring
challenge one of the most excit-
ing in recent years.
The addition of the Maserati
does not come without some
controversy. Under current
rules, cars that wish to run in
the ALMS must be homogulat-
ed that is a process by which
a race car is derived from the
street version of the model

Cole's big bat paves way to big victory


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Gene
Cole, the power hitting short-
stop for Lake Placid Marine, is
quite familiar with roundtrip-
pers. Twice a week he makes
the 300-mile roundtrip drive to
his job as a captain with the
Miami-Dade Fire Department.
On Monday, Cole smashed
two roundtrippers on the ball-
field to help power Lake Placid
Marine (5-7) to a 20-16 win
over Advanced Mobilehome
Systems (5-7).

Quigg and Glenn Minnick
homered.
For Lake Placid Marine it
was 'their fifth win in the last

Cole's job never ends. When
he is not at the fire station, he
applies his EMS knowledge to
patching up injured players at
the Lake June Ballpark in Lake
Placid.
Meanwhile, Central Security
(9-3) rode the hot pitching arm


of crafty George Quay into sole
possession of first place with a
19-12 victory over Seminole

Sedlock, Devils



silence Thunder


BY JOHN RITrER
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK Avon Park
exceeded its season runs total in
one game Thursday night.
Scoring five runs on six hits
was plenty enough to pick up
the first win of the season for
the Devils, dropping the Lake
Region Thunder 5-1 at Head
Field in the second round of the
Bill Jarrett Ford Early Bird
Tournament.
"We got more runs and more
hits in this one game than we
did in all the others," head
coach Mort Jackson joked,
referring to Tuesday's opener
and two preseason games. "It's
just what I've been preaching to
these guys: Play good defense
and get good pitching and you
don't have to be a great hitting
team. You just gotta put things
together and do what your sup-
posed to do, and that's what
makes the difference."
Sophomore left-hander
Johnny Sedlock produced with-
out a doubt the best pitching
performance of the tournament
so far, going all seven innings,
striking out 11 while walking
none.
"I'm going to tell you, when
Johnny pitches or Robert
(Lewis) pitches, we're gonna
have a chance," Jackson added.
"And it helps out, no doubt. We
play better defense, don't make
as many mistakes and there's no
question that it helps."
After falling behind 1-0 in
the second inning, Avon Park
finally got things rolling in the
fifth. Luke Sedlock started
things off with a one out double
and then came in to score when
Lee Albritton reached on an
error.
One inning later, Devarius
Strange came around to score
his first of two runs when he led

and specifications.
"The Maserati does not com-
pletely comply with the
Automobile Club de l'Quest
requirements, and as such, has
not yet been homologated for
competition under ACO regula-
tions," said IMSA Chief
Operating Offices Tim Mayer.
"IMSA will bear the final
responsibility to regulate the
performance of the car in the
interest of ALMS competition,
such that the race car operates
within the accepted perform-
ance envelope of cars within
the GT' category."
The Maserati MC 12 is
longer than the road version of
the car, which was allowed to
participate in the European FIA
GT Championship last year
after amalgamation of the rules.
Until the rules questions are
resolved, Maserati will be per,
mitted to race, but not to score
championship points, but it will
not keep them off the podium if
they finish in the top three.
The car will be fielded by RF
Corse and will be supported by
longtime Sebring favorite Risi
Competizione. A second car

basically pinned himself in the
third period.
McGovern (25-8) was trail-
ing 7-0 when he got into what
seemed to be a good position on
Friger, but things quickly
changed as McGovern turned a
little too far backward, getting
his own shoulders on the mat
and the referee signaled a pin
despite the fact Friger didn't
have control of McGovernm.
"I had him in a tilt and I
looked up at his shoulders and
he was posted up on his head,
so I was thinking maybe I could
scoot back and flatten out his
shoulders and I guess I flat-
tened out my shoulders and the
ref called pin," McGovern said.
"I was hearing him count


off with a booted grounder and
was followed by a Lewis single
to left. Two batters later, Matt
Devlin chased home Billy
Dobson with a bases-loaded
walk.
Avon Park's final two runs
came in the top of the seventh
when Strange ripped a triple to
center and scampered home on
a Johnny Sedlock single.
Jackson then decided to impro-
vise with a suicide squeeze with
the bases loaded, scoring
Sedlock on a Lewis bunt.
With tonight's showdown
against Sebring on the horizon,
Jackson agreed there was no
better time for a win.
"It was a confidence thing,"
Jackson said. "They've been
beaten three times in a row and
it really doesn't matter that you
play everybody cause you're
still getting beat. And, you
know, this was huge. This will
be huge for us, give us a little
confidence going into the
biggest rival game of the year
for us tonight and just looking
forward to it.
"It wasn't .stellar, it wasn't
the greatest thing I've ever
seen. But compared to the pre-
vious three that I've seen that
was awesome."

Sebastian River 2 *
Sebring 0
Rudy Levocz probably
shouldn't play the lottery any-
time soon.
Only a one-hit shutout could
outshine the junior right-hander
Thursday night after he went
seven strong innings for
Sebring, striking out two and
allowing just two runs.
But as luck would have it,
Sebastian River's Chad Smith
did throw a one-hit shutout in
the second part of the Early
Bird double-header in a 2-0 win


in the season.
The introduction of the
Maserati has been termed "a
major coup" for the ALMS.
"We expect that our fans,
competitors and event promot-
ers will greatly benefit from the
inclusion of this extremely
exciting and competitive new
ALMS race car entry," said
ALMS President 'and CEO
Scott Atherton.
Officials from Maserati were
equally pleased.
"Maserati Corse is pleased to
have the opportunity to display
our car in front of audiences in
North America. This is the most
important sales market for
Maserati, so this development
is very important for our sales
and marketing efforts as well,"
said Claudio Berro, Maserati
Corse director.
Sebring International
Raceway President Tres
Stephenson was all smiles at
the Maserati news.
"We're excited all right, this
just adds to the overall quality
of the field it's going to be
one heck of a race," he said.
As to the entry list,
Stephenson said he is getting
updates daily.
"That's our number one
request 'Where's the entry
list?' he said.

heard him slap the floor. I guess
that's the way it goes some-
times."
iMcGovern fell to Lecanto's
Mike Musto, 8-4, in the first
round of the wrestlebacks
Thursday night.
McCreary (135 pounds) said
it wasn't nerves that got him in
trouble as he was pinned Andy
Milburn of Green Cove
Springs-Clay in the first round.
"I don't think I was nervous
at all, I just think I was a little
unprepared for the guy,"
McCreary (29-11) said. "I did-
n't get in my stance or any-
thing. I didn't have time to
react. He was just a lot more
prepared than I was."
McCreary fell to T.J. Strunk
of North Palm Beach-Benjamin

Johnny Sedlock struck out 11 and walked none in a complete-game
win for Avon Park in the Early Bird Tournament on Thursday.


over Sebring.
"We told Rudy we're looking
for a starting pitcher, you know,
and we found one tonight,"
head coach Hoppy Rewis. "We
played great defense, we just
, (were) not putting the ball in
play tonight."
"I was just thinking, 'Keep
doing the same things, don't let
them score any runs,' Levocz
said. "We just needed to score
some and I know we've got the
team to do it. I pitched as good
as I can, (Smith) just pitched
better than I did."
Sebring's only hit came in
the bottom of the sixth inning
when Kiko Vazquez ripped a
fastball into center field for a
triple.
Sebastian River had already
gotten on the board by that time
with a run in the top of the


fourth. Evan Cook led off with
his second walk of the night and
was driven in by an Aaron
Kirtley single.
Kirtley scored his team's sec-
ond run in the seventh, trotting
home from first on a long dou-
ble to center field by Ben
Scharfschwardt.
Sebring's best chance to plate
a few runs came in the bottom
of the fifth when Chris Welborn
reached on a fielder's choice
and J. C. Shoop walked with
two outs.
However, a popout ended the
inning and kept Sebring off the
board.
"I was happy (with the game
overall)," Levocz said. "I was
trying to get back at them for
last year when they 10-runned
us. We've got a squad though
look-out for us this year."

TIGERS
Continued from 1B
Lyons said he never even
played pick-up games with
white kids in the area.
"My senior year was the
first time I talked with white
kids," he said. "There was
basically no interaction. When
it got dark, you were on your
side of town and they were on
their side.
"At the movie theater, the
whites were downstairs and the
blacks were in the balcony.
Unless your parent worked for
a white family, you were not
around whites at all."
When asked to recall basket-
ball games at E.O. Douglass,
Lyons emphasized that the big
sports were football and base-
, ball. Basketball was "some-
thing to play between those
two sports."
The Tigers played other
black schools from Lake
Wales, Palmetto and Sarasota,
according to Lyons, who
remembered one standout
player from Lake Wales.
"Stephen Hawkins played
for Lake Wales and that was
before it was against the rules
to dunk in the warm-ups of a
high school game. He dunked
with two balls, one in each
hand. We looked and thought
'Oh, my God!'
"That intimidated every-
body. He went on to play at
Florida A&M University."
Lyons also attended A&M
on a baseball scholarship. He
was a pitcher for the Tigers.

big for me all year long."
Wright believed his team
wore Perry down', and that was
the reason he went quiet in the
fourth quarter. Yet the
Lakewood coach pointed, to
reserve guard A.C. Wilson, who
scored 10, as a thorn in his side
in the second half.
Fortunately for Wright, he
had his own bench step up.
"Mike Buckins'came in and
did a tremendous job for us,"
Wright said. "We had foul trou-
ble early. We had to play some
guys a lot of minutes that we
normally don't play."
Only Morrison, with 12, had
more than Buckins' 10. Yet
'


"We only had 11 players,
but we beat a lot of teams. I
was a sophomore (McRae's)
senior year. We had Al Hinson
and Sonny Austin. We won
state that year."
One figure that Tigers
remember is Coach Blanding.
He coached both the Tigers'
football and baseball teams.
Players remember the interest
he took in his athletes.
"Coach was almost like a
parent," Lyons said. "He had a
specific time that you were
supposed to be in and if he saw
you out or heard you were out
after that time, there were con-
sequences. There was a price
to pay."
The price helped yield some
strong teams from a small
school. Lyons estimated that
his school had around 400 stu-
dents. He remembers that 67.
graduated with his class in
1965.
In the fall of that year, a
small group of students from
E.O. Douglas went to Avon
Park High School and integra-
tion began. Lyons' younger
brother was among them.
Fortunately, brave people
and time changed the customs
of Highlands County and the.
South. It is easy to forget those
days as our youth play together
now.
A great athletic tradition'
from E.O. Douglas deserves to
be remembered and so.do the.
courageous people that led us
to a better way.

John Bedell is a sports writer for
the News-Sun.


Wright is far from satisfied with
his team's play of late.
"We've lost that little sayvy,
that little spunk that we have,"
he said. "I felt that we didn't
really play that well.
"Unfortunately, or fortunate-
ly, the program has reached a.
stage where, for us, it's win
region or you had an unsuccess-
ful season, which is really
unfair to the program and the
kids. But that's the expectation
that the community has."
Nonetheless, Wright's team
completed a trifecta of playoff
eliminations for Sebring at the
hand of Lakewood in the last 20
days. The Streaks' boys and
girls soccer teams also saw
their seasons end against the
Spartans.

Woman scarred

from violence
The bullet fired from a 44
caliber handgun traveled at a
downward diagonal, obliter-
ated her right eye, blown her
nose off, torn through the
roof of her mouth, demol-
ished most of her teeth,
ripped through her left cheek
and lodged in her shoulder.
Where once was a beautiful
bone structure was now a
blooded dark hole. This is
what happen to the face of
Carolyn Brown.
This reads like something
out of Hollywood doesn't it'?
But it's not. This is a true
story of what a happened to a
woman in a vicious domestic
violence relationship. I first
learn about Carolyn while
watching "The Insider," tele-
vision program. No one
could have designed such a
hideous mask. Unfortunately
it wasn't a mask but the face
of a woman. Curious to learn
more about Carolyn, I went
on line and here is what I
learn:
On October 2003,
Carolyn, who was living
with her mother in Waco,
Texas, at the time of her
injury was shot by her ex-
boyfriend, Terrence
"Popeye" Kelly, who had
just been released from
prison. On that fateful day,
Carolyn was on -the phone
talking when Kelly stormed
into her bedroom demanding
to know who was on the
phone with her. After he
yanked the phone from the
wall, her, mother who was
somewhere else in the house
heard the commotion, rushed
to her daughter's aid. Kelly
shot her in the stomach and
killed her.
Next Kelly, like a maniac
held the 44 caliber to
Carolyn's right temple and
fired,, ripping her skin and
splattered her flesh and blood
all over the room. She said
that as he held the gun to her
face she said, "I prayed ask-
ing the Lord for help." When
the police arrived they saw
the women laying motion-
less. In a report, a police
officer who came to scene
thought the worsen were
dead and was walking passed
the lifeless looking body of
Carolyn. She said God gave
her the v. ill to reach out and
grabbed the ankle of the offi-
cer to let him know t[ji she
was Ii'.i e She ,.kj r, -hed to
the hospital.
Carolyn's recovery is a
long slow process, an uphill
struggle. Terribly disfigured,
and dubbed the "face of
courage," she spent six
months in the hospital, and
was unable to speak for two
months. The reconstructive
surgeons will be grafting
skin from her back onto her
face. Bones from one of her
legs will be used in the
reconstruction of her,new
nose. Because Carolyn's
mouth is, missing she's
unable to eat, she is fed
through a tube which is
placed in her belly. A trachea
tube is what assists, her to
breathe. A mask is used to
cover the porthole in her
face.
Today, Carolyn who faces
an uphill struggle to having
normal facial features, has
volunteered to be pho-
tographed before surgery so
that her face can be used for
a domestic violence public
service advertisement. She is
such an inspiration. She said,
"People look at me and think
they would have wanted to
die, they wouldn't have
wanted to live in the condi-
tion that I am in."

SEBRING Th

but in some cases she
a coincidence cov
happens that car- S
ries so much significance as to
seem more like fate, destiny, or
even divine intervention. .Am
This was the case when place
Linda McCone, of Sebring, just w
happened to be driving down a AnlU
road and noticed, for the very
first time, a small sign on the
corner of a fence surrounding
the yard of 93-year-old Sue
Dennis, of Sebring.
"Spreads, Quilts, and Curting
For Sale," the makeshift sign
read.
"I just noticed it and decided
to go in. That's when I met Ms.
Dennis," McCone stated.
Upon entering the home,
McCone saw, draped across a
couch in the living room, two U.-
stunning pine cone quilts which
had been handmade by Dennis;
and the obsession began.
"I saw those quilts laying
there and my eyeballs just
popped right out," McCone
recalled.
"I just fell in love with
them," McCone said. Initially,
she bought one; then she
bought a second. "I was plan-
ning to turn around and sell
them," she. explained. "But
when I got them home I just
couldn't do it."
Her friend, Betty Ford-Smith,
of Sebring, played a part in the Betty
decision not to sell. After Courkint
McCone showed them to her, stress,
she said that she wouldn't let project
her sell them. She told McCone
to not event think about it.
"That's true," stated
McCone. Since that time, both
women have grown apprecia-
tion and admiration of both the
quilt maker and the quilts.
McCone questioned Dennis
about the type of quilt and then
did research on the Internet. "I
found out that these quilts were
first made by African American
slaves and are a big part of our
heritage," McCone stated.
While many people have
never seen or even heard about
them, the pine cone quilt (also
known as the pine burr quilt or
cuckleburr quilt because of the
way in which the triangular
folds of fabric are pieced
together and placed so that a
pattern develops that resembles
the appearance of a pine cone
when viewed from above), was

of the state of Alabama in: 1997.
After seeing the quilts, Ford-
Smith was just dying to learn
how to make them. "She just
kept hounding me about it until
I said, 'OK, Betty,' and took her
to meet Ms. Dennis; and now
she's making her own,"
McCone said. Initially, McCone
didn't want to introduce her to
Dennis because, as she put it,
"This was my treasure.".
But she has no regrets and is
proud of the quilt her friend has
almost completed after nearly
two months of painstaking Linda
work. front.
"I believe that I will make make
one too, one day," McCone ture.
said. "I have the quilts, love the
quilts, and love Ms. Dennis; but
I just don't have the desire to make one
right now like Betty does. But I'm sure
that it is in my destiny and when the
time is right I will."

since that day, McCone has visited Dennis often and has become the proi
ner of a quilt which carries tremendous cultural significance to her .4fri
erican heritage. The pine cone quilt is so named because of the way thai

erican culture and can be traced back to the days of slavery. It is not un
inon for such a quilt to take as much as six months to make.

Dennis learned how to make these works of art as a young girl by watching her grandmother
them. Since then she has carried on the tradition which is deeply rooted in African American


The work involved in making one of
these spectacular quilts is mind bog-
gling. "When I first started," Ford-
Smith said, "people told me it would
take six months. And it would if you


don't pick it up every day. My goal is
to be, done with it by the end of ,
February.'Y
Wanting Dennis to "have a hand in it
too;" Ford-Smith had Dennis "put a


row in" her quilt.
If new material is used in. a
ni of quilt of this kind, the cost can
easily exceed $300. Dennis uses
Iw as fabric found at thrift shops,
dis- however, to keep the cost down.
ent. The weight of a pine cone
ud quilt is incredible; so much so
can that McCone has learned that
I when she sleeps under it she can
only do so if she lies flat on her
cone back. "I slept on my side under
In it at first and I swear it gave me
coIn- bursitis in my shoulder because
it was so heavy."
Though the quilts are incredi-
w bly beautiful, they are utilitarian
as well and can keep a body
warm on even the coldest of
nights. Dennis reminisced about
a time when a pine cone quilt
served her well, "I remember
once when I was in Brooklyn
and we was bound in the house
during a snow storm and we
couldn't even see a crack for 18
weeks and I slept under one to
keep warm."
Both McCone and Ford-Smith
feel that the people in the city of
Sebring should recognize
Dennis for what she's doing in
continuing the pine cone quilt-
ing tradition of their ancestors.
"Somebody has to continue this
and not let it die out," the ladies
agreed.
While Dennis has lived in
Sebring since 1970, when she
came to the area to visit a cousin
IT and wound up, as she explained
it, getting "mixed up with
Robert Dennis," who later
[ews-Sun became her husband. Many peo-
ands ple, even in her immediate
n neighborhood, have no idea
am-
ing about the talent she embodies or
the heritage her work preserves.
In all her years residing in
Sebring, Dennis said, "I ain't
y heard tell of nobody else makes
them and I been here since
S 1970."
When asked whether or not
Dennis recognized the talent and
n the value of her quilting, she
'said that she does. Quilts such as
hers can easily sell for more
than'$ 1,500. Currently, there is
one listed on Ebay, purported to
Shave been made by a blind
woman by the name of Sally
Brooks sometime between 1900
and 1920. The bidding for this
work of art is set to begin at
$25,000.
In addition to the blessing
gained by McCone and Ford-
Smith (as well as another com-
munity-minded friend, Adamma
Ibeawuchi of Sebring, who like-
wise shares an interest in both
Dennis and her quilts), in
becoming acquainted with
Dennis, the ladies feel honored
to be able to lend themselves to
Dennis as well. "Meeting Ms.
Dennis gives her more people to
come around and, help her," said
Ford-Smith. "We can all only
hope that we can be as strong
and independent as she is when
we are older. But," she contin-
ued, "as they saying goes; 'It
takes a whole community ...;'
and sometimes it does take a
group of people."
Though Dennis' fingers are
--i calloused and worn from all her
ndsin years of pushing and pulling
needles and thread, she will con-
cul- tinue to do so for as long as she
is able, sewing bedspreads,
quilts, curtains, clothes, and
"everything somebody might
need." Anyone interested in learning
more about Dennis' quilts or her other
handiwork can contact McCone at 385-

Keanu Reeves battles his demons in 'Constantine'


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
You might say, he's back.
Keanu Reeves, that is, saving the Earth
from demons who want to confiscate men's
immortal souls, along with their real estate
and their women.
Based on the comic book series
"Hellblazer," "Constantine" has Reeves
playing the title character, John Constantine
- a solitary chain-smoking man in black
who does God's dirty work in the shadowy
places that good folks dare not dream
about. Having once committed an unpar-
donable sin that will guarantee him a one-
way ticket to hell someday, he is God's
methodical servant, and yet he doesn't
believe the Big Boss will ever give him
credit for devoting his life to kicking
Satan's butt. Think of him as the Exorcist
with a rotten attitude.
Constantine's battleground is not defined
as any particular city or place, but its style
is decrepit metropolitan that is equal parts
Mexican and American. One can only
assume it's California.
When "Constantine" begins, the mythi-
cal Spear of Destiny has gone missing, but
not for long a homeless man discovers it
in a hole under a bridge. This vital artifact
will play predominantly in the war between
heaven and hell God, apparently, is care-
less about where he leaves his things but
it will take so long to find out why the spear
matters that you may lose track of it your-
self before the movie gets back to it.
In the meantime, Constantine gets a
break from casting demons out of Mexican
girls to concentrate on other urgent matters.


'CONSTANTINE'

Director: Francis Lawrence
Writer: Kevin Brodbin and Frank Cappello;
based on the comic books by Jamie Delano
and Garth Ennis
Cast: Keanu Reeves (Constantine), Rachel
Weisz (Angela/Isabel), Shia LeBeouf
(Chas), Djimon Honsou (Midnite), Tilda
Swinton (Gabriel), Gavin Rossdale
(Balthazar) and Peter Stormare (Satan)
Released by: Warner Bros. (2005)
Running time: 2 hours, 1 minute
Rated: R for violence and demonic images
Now Playing: Carmike Cinema 8 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

One is that he's dying of lung cancer -
thanks to the chain-smoking habit that
makes him look so cool. The other is that
the balance between heaven and hell has
been altered, and demons are expanding
their turf.
Since God has seen fit to smite
Constantine with a fatal disease, he doesn't
care to go on one last demon-bashing spree.
But then a pretty detective Angela (Rachel
Weisz) sucks him back in when she begs
him to prove that her insane twin did not
commit suicide and therefore should not be
denied a Catholic funeral.
As should be expected, "Constantine" is
sometimes grotesque, especially when the
demons take on their true forms, and its
brief depictions of hell are disturbing
enough to give Mel Gibson an idea for his
next movie. Mercifully, the action moves


on quickly once the gory images have given
their visceral jolt.
Though melancholy in its tone,
"Constantine" relieves the gloominess with
deadpan humor for which Reeves is a
natural and its silly pseudo-Catholic the-
ology gives familiar symbols and sacra-
ments a wacky mythology of their own.
You will learn all about the Spear of
Destiny, which empowers humans but
causes cattle to drop dead at the sight of it,
and the 17th chapter of "Corinthians,"
which only exists in a Bible in hell a let-
ter St. Paul apparently scribbled to those
Corinthians who didn't make it to the
pearly gates. Then there's the tool
Constantine uses to beat up demons when
crosses, holy water and Latin incantations
lose their effect: The sacred brass knuckles.
Even though Keanu Reeves was born to
play parts like Constantine, the supporting
cast jazzes it up since most are excellent but
largely unknown actors. Among them is
Rachel Weisz, who brings style to a part
that is beneath her; Shia LeBeouf, as
Constantine's sometimes apprentice;
Djimon Honsou, as the soulful, suspicious
Midnight who aids Constantine sporadical-
ly; art film actress Tilda Swinton as the
angel Gabriel; and Peter Stormare, as a
prancing, effeminate Satan.
At nearly two hours, "Constantine" out-'
wears its welcome, and the shoot-'em-up
fallout with Satan is bombastic. Most of
"Constantine" doesn't make sense, either,
but that doesn't make it unendurable, espe-
cially if you're in the mood for the ridicu-
lous.

Travelogue journeys through the Alps


SEBRING The Kiwanis
Club of Sebring will present its
fifth program in its Travel and
Adventure Film Series
Tuesday, March 8, in the
Sebring Civic Center.
"The Alps" is narrated by
James T. Tompkins and spon-
sored by Florida Hospital
Heartland Division.
Mountains emerge from the
Mediterranean Sea near the
"Riveria of Flowers" to form
the backbone of Europe. )From
the gardens of Provence to the
height of Zugspitze, linking
the castles of Bavaria to Italy's
Lake Country, Europe's Alps
span the countries of Monaco,
France, Italy, Switzerland,
Liechtenstein, Germany,
Austria and Slovenia.
' After stopping in Monaco,
the movie wanders through
Grassee, takes a peak a
Provence from the Citadel of
Sisterone and observes locals
performing music in the streets
of Bellinzona, a part of the
Lake Country of Italy and
Switzerland.
Swiss chocolate and Italian
gelatto will be shown before
the film moves on to the palaz-
zos and promenades of Lago
Maggiore and Lago Coma and
explores the cobblestone shop-
ping streets of Bellagio.
After studying ancient pet-
roglyphs at the Val Camonica,
the film takes in the tasty mar-
kets of Bolzano. Climbing into
the Dolomites, it hikes through
the pastures of the highest
plateau in Europe.
Riding the strada delle
Dolomiti to Cortina of
Ampezzo leads to a traditional
celebration. Down the Rhine
to Liechtenstein, the trave-
logue journeys through the sto-,

and Adventure Film Series will discover the Alps.


rybook lands of this small
country.
Crafts wait to be discovered
in Switzerland. The film catch-
es up to the shy chamois and
the regal ibex. Vertical walls
and waterfalls drain the gla-
ciers of the Jungfrau masif,
and the highest railway station
in Europe stretches above the
snowline.
The film travels through
alpine passes in cog trains and
trams and hikes through the
Zermatt and the Matterhorn.
Europe's largest national
park will be explored in
Austria, where the
Grossgloc k ner
Hochalpenstrasse rises to
Austria's highest peak.
Viewers can take in the waters
at some "bad" spas and peek
into an underground salt mind.
In the Salzkammergut,
youngsters demonstrate the


meaning of gemutlichkeit,
before the film moves on to
Salzburg, the birthplace of
classical music.
From there the film hops
across the border to Bavaria,
known for its beer, and then
heads to Neuschwanstein,
King Ludwig's fairy-tale cas-
tle. Even in summer, winter
sports take place high on
Germany's Zugspitze's peak.
The film will visit Lake
Bled, in Slovenia, and enjoy
the alpenglow of Lake Bohinj
at the eastern reach of the
Alps.
Mont Blanc towers above
all other Alps, inviting
climbers and hang-gliders, bal-
loonists and biplanes to dis-
cover its rock walls and glacier
valleys.
The most famous Alp, the
Matterhorn, rises not far away,
its snow melting into the sce-


nic Valle d' Aosta in Italy and
the Rhone Valley in
Switzerland: Alpine river pass-
es castles and cliffs, monaster-
ies and mineral springs.
Railways and trams climb
even the highest peaks for
spectacular views. In the val-
leys, church bells call the
faithful, while castles rise sen-
tinels at mountain passes.
Tunnels burrow beneath the
ancient cities, bringing salt to
the surface and tourists to their
train stations. Twisting high-
ways tangle tongues with
names like Grossglockner,
Hochalpenstrasse and
LaStrade delle dolomiti.
French, Italian, Swiss,
Bavarian, Austrian and
Slovenian cultures spread out
over these Alpine territories.
Even Liechtenstein adds its
own flavor to the region.
"Imagine a child yodeling near
the birthplaces of classical
composers," Tompkins says,
"or wonder at signs of ancient
civilization."
Although not an experi-
enced climber, Tompkins.
donned 30 pounds of camera
and other gear to experience
the Alps first-hand, bringing
back colorful footage to share
with his audiences.
"There is a common friend-
liness within the diversity of
Alpine people," he said.
Although adventure film-
making is hard work,
Tompkins found that in Italy's
beautiful Lake Country, it's
"doice far niente' it's 'sweet
to do nothing'."
Tickets are $7 at the door.
Seats are reserved for season
ticket holders. For details, call
Grace Owens at 273-1421.

'Meekness' means learning how to be like Jesus

Pastor Cecil Hess will dedicate the Sebring Church of the
Brethren's newly remodeled sanctuary Sunday morning.

Sebring Church of the Brethren
to dedicate remodeled sanctuary


SEBRING On Sunday
the church will have a cele-
bration to mark the renova-
tion of its sanctuary and the
addition of a new three manu-
al organ and sound system.
During the morning wor-
ship service, recognition will
be given to individuals and
firms who contributed to the
rebuilding process. The pas-
tor, Dr. Cecil Hess, will speak
on "Let the Walls Come
Tumbling Down!" Under the
leadership of Bea Kiehner
Sprankle, the Temple Choir
will sing "Shout to the Lord."
Estelle Whitmer will present a
version of "I Believe," which
she composed.
At 5:30 p.m., a church
birthday party will be in the
fellowship hall. This will cel-
ebrate all members of the
congregation who have 89th
birthdays and the birthdays of
all those present. NLight will


present music.
All offerings for the day
will be earmarked for the cost
of the renovation project.
The extensive remodeling
project began last summer
after the church was damaged
by the hurricanes and by
mold.
The ceiling and insulation
was removed in the 500-seat
sanctuary. The dark-colored
wood was replaced with yel-
low pine. The cupola area was
reinforced with new win-
dows, and fans were installed
to improve air circulation.
A contractor was employed
to complete the work, and a
number of members volun-
teered to paint, clean, move
pews and perform other jobs.
David and Craig Whitmer
provided on-site supervision.
An all-church picnic will
be Saturday, March 5, at The
Palms Estates in Lorida.

yffe


angry for a justifiable
cause.
The word "meek,"
meaning "weak,"
would hardly be an
appropriate descrip-
tion of John the
Baptist, or of the
Savior when he
denounced the reli-
gious leaders of his
people for leading
them astray, or of the
Apostle Paul, whose
firey darts were
aimed directly at
those who attacked


In the Sermon on R
the Mount, Jesus
says: "Blessed are the
meek, for they will 1
inherit the earth."
(Matthew 5:5)
Meekness must not .s
be confused with
weakness. It is unfor-
tunate that the
English word "meek" A M
has acquired a milk-
and-much connota- WITI
tion, suggesting a Rev.
weak and cowardly Re.
person, a person who
is afraid to fight for
what he believes in.
In our day to be labeled as "a
meek little man" is a title that
no one wants.
But true meekness, in the
scriptural sense of the term, is
not weakness. Rather, accord-
ing to Scripture, there are times
when God calls us to speak out
sharply. He wants us to defend
the rights of others, to speak the
truth boldly, yes, even to be


self an example of kindness
and long-suffering.
We, as his disciples, are
called to be like him. The Lord
is well award of how this world
thinks and operates, and he
seeks to instill his contrasting
spirit of true meekness and gen-
tleness in us. It is his will that,
prompted by the Holy Spirit,
we might fight against the flesh
and its selfish desires, which
prompt men to push and crowd
their way over other men on the
abominable "road to success."
Our flesh insists that if we
don't fight back, using fire to
fight fire or employing every
dirty trick that has been used
against us, we will be trampled
in the dust by all the heavy
heels around us. But the Lord
says that not the hard-hearted
and the heavy-handed, but the
meek will inherit the earth. In
spite of popular opinion, it is
not force which determines who
will ultimately receive the ben-


efits of God's creation. Quite
the contrary! It is the meek who
will possess a remarkable inher-
itance, a new heaven and a new
earth.
As disciples of our Lord
Jesus Christ we will want to
cleanse ourselves of all jeal-
ousy, remove from our hearts
all ill will and bitterness. We
must learn to be patient, gentle
and kind to all people. We need
to hold before us the example of
Jesus who did all things for us
so that we might have forgive-
ness, salvation and eternal life
with him. We are to commit all
our cares into his gracious
hands for he has promised that
he will be with us and he will
deliver all that he has promised.

tor with New Life Evangelical
Lutheran Church, 3725
Hammock Road, Sebring. He
can be reached at 385-2293 or

Rather, the meek are those
who realize how small they are
in comparison with the
almighty God, who commit
their way to the Lord and trust
in him, who suffer personal
wrongs patiently, confident that
he will vindicate them. The

eye to the black eye and the
bruises on our friends and fam-
ily members. Our comments
are, it's none of my business, if
she wanted to get out of the
relationship she could. She has
no ambition, that's why she
stays. But, how dare you stay in
your comfort zone and be criti-
cal of the struggles. It's not
until your beloved daughter,
mother or sister have been
caught up in the vicious cycle
that you will make the decision
to intervene.
Thank you to the citizens of
this great nation who has
stepped up to the call to reach
out, whether it is through con-
tribution in cash or kind, volun-
teering, speaking up, reaching
out, being an advocate, your
involvement is appreciated by
your remarkable service.
You can reach a crisis coun-
selor anywhere in the country

are available 24 hours -and are
fluent in multiple languages.
