ATV dealer



wants to set



up countywide



riding area

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Unless they own a lot of land, or have a friend who
does, all-terrain vehicle riders don't have a lot of places to ride in
Highlands County.
That doesn't have to be, and Jeff Cowell of GHC Motorsports in
Lake Placid would like to help change that.
On Tuesday, he will go before the county commission to ask if the
county can tap into the title fees that the state collects and use those
to fund an ATV riding grea in Highlands County.
Such an area could give people a place to ride off-road, out of the
hair of residents and within the law. Cowell said most riders want to
and do obey traffic laws that say ATVs are not allowed on public
right of ways. Tickets for riding in the wrong place can be up to $77
for a first offense.
Funding fun
Cowell said that every ATV sold in Florida has to be titled, and a
portion of that $33.75 fee goes to support state-owned off-road vehi-
cle parks, such as Crooms Park in Brooksville 2,300-2,600 acres
that have been open since 1976.
Another funding source would be registration stickers. Cowell
said that an annual fee buys the rider a sticker that goes on the ATV.
Then the ATV is allowed to ride on a public park governed by that
state or local agency.
Cowell has hundreds of signatures on a petition asking the coun-
ty to look into creating such a park. He has spoken with Parks and
Recreation Director Vicki Pontius about the idea, and she recom-
mended him talking to the county commission.
Not much land
"The only problem (that) we run into is that any (place) that has:

New crew takes


over at Harder Hall


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The "new
crew" at Harder Hall got
together with their architects
for a meeting Thursday with
the representatives of JMS
Design, their architects.
"This is the first time we've
gotten together all at the same
time," new Project Manager
Kevin Taylor said.
Work on the historic hotel
has been going on for several
weeks, with Taylor estimating
the north wing could be ready
in as few as four to six weeks.
"We can't open it, because
we don't have the parking,"


he said.
Taylor said that part of the
project would be ready to go
to a punch list within a week.
The renovation apparently
is going along the same plans
proposed by former project
manager Gary Puckett, with
the first floor of the north
wing set to be offices and the
upper floors made into guest
rooms.
Those rooms also have
been painted and crown
molding installed.
"We'll have the guys to do
the tiling in the bathrooms in
the next couple of x eeks,'

Residents line up Friday at Avon Park Air Force Range to see a simulator that demonstrates fire sup-
pression aboard an aircraft.


Range hosts open house


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING- Hundreds of
residents turned out for an open
house at the Avon Park Air
Force Range Friday afternoon.
They had a chance to see
some of the equipment used at
the facility, meet some of the
people who run the sprawling
106,000-acre range and ask
questions about its operation.
Residents got to see electron-
ic targets up close and personal.
The sounds of automatic
weapons fire accentuated the
way the equipment operated as


pneumatic mannequins popped
up as possible targets for mili-
tary personnel honing their
craft.
Lt. Col. Stamp Walden gave
a briefing on both the history
and mission of the range not
once but twice.
He outlined the use of the
facility since it was first stood
up in 1941 to its current activi-
ties under the 18th Air Support
Operations Group.
Walden outlined the range's
new specialties, which include
both bombing and air training.
"We integrate and train like


we fight," he said, noting the
emphasis on interaction
between pilots and ground per-
sonnel.
Among the training exercises
are close air support, combat
search and rescue and special
operations training.
He referred to the range as a
"Snowbird Facility," telling
how just as tourists come to
Florida for the good weather,
there are units in the north that
fly over the Avon Park range
when their facilities up north

Gang activity being


recognized locally


* First of a two-part series.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Gangs have
always been with us from
the Hatfields and the
McCoys, to the Sharks and
the Jets, to the modern day
gangs with cryptic, menacing
names.
For the first time in at least
five years, there are signs of
gang activity here in
Highlands County.
"Right now we've identi-
fied a couple of gangs around
here," Bill West, dean at
Sebring High School, said in
an interview recently.
Modem day youth gangs


pose special problems for law
enforcement personnel and
educators.
In the first place, most
begin small, built around a
tight neighborhood clique.!
The members know each
other well and cling to a sense;
of belonging, so infiltration is
just about impossible.
' In the second place, most
gangs have become highly
organized and the larger ones
have become national in
scope. They are sophisticated
in their use of the Internet,
and can coordinate activity
around the country. Local
gangs are encouraged to fran-

NRPI to trade buildings, funds to Sun 'N Lake for lots


HIGHLANIIS




Utilities will

close window

SEBRING Residents
wanting to pay their
municipal water bills may
have a slight inconven-
ience next week when the
drive-up window is closed
at the Sebring Utilities
Department building, 321
N. Mango St.
"We'll be shutting it
down on Tuesday so we
can install a pneumatic
system like they have at
the banks," Utilities
Department Administrative
Coordinator Bob Boggus
said.
He said the installation
of the system would take
about three days to com-
plete.
"We'll re-open it on
Monday, March 7," he
said.
Boggus said the new
system would replace the
current drive-up window in
many ways.
"The tube will come
right here to the front
counter," he said. The cur-
rent out building will be
replaced by an audio-visual
screen.
Bogus said it would be a
safer system for the
employees while providing
the same services to the
'customer.

SEBRING Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring is apparently getting
a sweet deal from National
Recreation Properties Inc. for
its lots.
Mick Grosh, director of Land
Management and Development
for Sun 'N Lake, said NRPI is
basically helping the district
clear debt, get new facilities and
set aside land for various future
uses. The agreement, approved
this month by the board of
supervisors, should ensure that
the district stays solvent and has"
both the money and facilities to
continue growing with ,the
increasing population in
Highlands County.
The district has sold 6,043 of
its lots to NRPI. The company
will pay off $3.4 million owned
in taxes on those lots, and will
pay the district $500,000 into
the general fund on close of the
deal.
Transferred lots

sell off 500 lots per year to bona
fide purchasers someone


Sun 'N Lake looks at roads


Better Access
The Highlands County Engineering
Department is already redesigning the traffic
circle at Sun 'N Lake Boulevard and Ponce de
Leon Drive. As part of its deal with the Sun
'N Lake of Sebring Improvement District,
National Recreation Properties Inc. has
agreed to do a comprehensive traffic study
that will include another access road off U.S.
27 on the. strip of land between Tanglewood
and the-wastewater treatment plant.
This would put a second eastern entrance
either near or directly at the junction of U.S.
27 and Whisper Lake Boulevard.
C.R 635 corridor
Also, the Highlands Count, commnnission


who is planning to build will
increase to 1,000 lots per year.
This means an increase in tax
revenue of $252,5000 per year,
Grosh said.
As soon as water lines, sew-
ers and roads are in place, or as"
soon as the agreement is 10
years old, NRPI will transfer
the lots at 750 per year to bona
fide purchasers at market value.
If after the 10 years are up,


has lent its support to having Sun 'N Lake
make a deal with The Nature Conservancy to
create a road corridor through the western end
of the district.
The plan is to trade scrub habitat lots that
The Nature Conservancy wants for pine
woods that are less ecologically sensitive and
could be used for a north and south road
between Schumacher Road and Avon Park
Lakes.
For such a road to work, the once proposed
but defeated County Road 635 extension may
be revisited b\ count) planners and officials
from the Florida Department of
Tiansportaliion


NRPI fails to transfer 750 lots
in any calendar year, then the
company will pay application
and maintenance fees for lots it
failed to transfer. This deficit
will accumulate over the years.
Infrastructure
One of the biggest issues for
the district is infrastructure. As
part of its agreement with the
district, NRPI has agreed to


fund construction of all infra-
structure needed to develop the
lots it has purchased. This
includes roads, water, sewer
and utilities to the remaining
developable land.
The Candlelight Restaurant,
as it's known, will cease to be.
Plans are to bulldoze the build-
ing and replace it with a
"resort/town centre" mixed-use
facility. The district will pro-


vide the land and lease it to
NRPI.
NRPI will pay the golf
course debt up to $1 million for
the loan on Turtle Run Golf
Course and the $700,000 golf
course debt owed to the dis-
trict's general fund. The compa-
ny will also pay off $136,000 in
outstanding members loans.
In addition, NRPI will con-
struct a a new golf course club-
house or place up to $2 million
in escrow for it.
Part of the deal will reserve
40-60 acres for a future high
school site out on Schumacher
Road. Grosh said it's the next
step since the district already
houses a large elementary and
middle school.
NRPI will pay off a $330,000
loan owed for the district's util-
ity plant. However, the compa-
ny has agreed to design and
construct a new wastewater
treatment plant immediately,
costing approximately $12 mil-.
lion.
In addition, the company will
contribute $375,000 toward
constructing an effluent water
reuse program.

Officials meet to discuss



Sebring fire station situation


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A group of
principals including representa-
tives of the city of Sebring, the
Sebring Fire Department, the
Sebring Historic Preservation
Commission, officials from
engineering firm Chastain
Skillman, a staff member of the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency and a representa-
tive of CJW Associates the
insurance -adjuster for the city
- met Wednesday to discuss
the tottering tower atop the
Sebring Fire Department
Building on Mango Street and
what to do about it.
The spire, once used to hang
and dry hoses, was found last
year to be crumbling. Three
hurricanes later, it is in even
worse condition and could be in
danger of falling.
As a temporary fix, crews
from the fire department and
the public works division last
week spent a day wrapping the
tower with nylon straps in an


attempt to hold it in place for
the time being.
That came as a recommenda-
tion from Chastain Skillman
Senior Project Engineer/direc-
tor of Structural Engineering
Paul Racette. He again
reviewed and photographed the
hose tower on Feb. 9, accompa-
nied by other Chastain
Skillman officials, representa-
tives of the city and FEMA offi-
cials.
Racette also suggested that
pedestrian traffic be blocked off
as well as the west parking area
of the building.
In his report, Racette further
suggested that the building not
be used during any high wind
conditions.
"This precaution is to pre-
vent any public injury from the
potential full top section or
tower failure," the report reads.
However, local developer
and the chairman of the historic
preservation commission Gary
Puckett said the fix does not
take care of all the concerns.

SEBRING Highlands
County will soon be able to pull
federal housing funding in with
surrounding counties in hopes
of attracting-bigger developers.
County commissioners have
agreed to join a consortium
with as many as five other'cen-
tral Florida counties to have a
bigger pool of funds to draw
affordable housing developers.
Lynn Topel, executive direc-
tor of Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initia-
tive, said this could help the
county's economic develop-
ment. Highlands County has
trouble attracting large busi-
nesses and factpries,because the -
county doesn't have enough
housing for the employee base.
Louige England, executive
director for the Industrial
Development Authority/


Economic Development Com-
mission, said employers look at
levels of affordable housing
when deciding whether to
locate in an area.
If large businesses do decide
to locate in Highlands County,
Topel said, many employees
may have to go out of county to
find affordable housing. They
will end up spending money
elsewhere and pay taxes to
another local government.
Penny Phillippi, Highlands
County housing coordinator,
said it's very difficult for rural
counties in central Florida to
qualify for enough funding
from the Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment HOME Investment
Partnership funds to draw the
large dvef1opimnts that would _
.make an impact on the low-. to
moderate-income housing mar-
ket.

"The straps will keep the cor-
bels in place, but they do noth-
. ing to stabilize the rest of the
tower," he said.
As Puckett sees it, the
biggest problem is the dome
atop the spire. .
'That could come loose and
fall right down through the cen-
ter," he said.
He put at least part of the
blame for the situation on the
antennas which sit on top of the
dome.
"Every time the wind blows
it twists and that weakens the
tower," he said.

Fatal wreck

victims' sisters

support him
By PHIL ATT1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's about the
only chance he has left.
On Tuesday, Jean Claude
Meus of Sebring will go to the
Hardee County Courthouse in
front of Judge Charles B. Curry
to report for two concurrent 15-
year sentences for manslaugh-
ter, He hopes his new attorney
may be able to get that sentence
reduced.
It all stemmed from a traffic
accident on the night of May
.11,2001.

Terrible wreck
Meus, a Haitian-born United
States resident, had arrived at
Six L Farms in Immokalee late
on May 10, 2001, to pick up a
load, but was too early to even
sign in. So he went to bed, and
signed in when he woke up at
11:30 a.m. May 11. Then he
went back to bed and woke up
later 4 p.m. to get his truck
loaded with tomatoes.
When he finished, he headed
north. He was westbound on
State Road 64 from Zolfo
Springs when he said a white
vehicle, possibly a truck, turned
onto S.R. 64 at the State Road
636 junction and cut him off.
He ran into the bushes on the
right side of the stop sign and
tried to get back onto the road.
That's when Nona Moore, 40,
came around a curve eastbound
with her three daughters in a
white van.
Meus swerved to avoid a
head-on wreck, but the sharp
move overturned his trailer,
which landed right on the van,
crushing it.
Meus said he called 911 and
tried to help as much as he
could. Emergency personnel
from two counties responded,
but Lindsey Moore, 8, and her
mother died. Ashley, now 16,
and Haley, now 10, survived.
"I cry every time I think
about the accident," Meus said.

talk regularly with Dana Christenson and her sister, Beth Jahna,
(not pictured), both of whom are trying to help the couple reduce
Meus' vehicular manslaughter sentence. A year and a half ago,
Meus, a truck driver, was sentenced to two concurrent 15-year
prison terms for a wreck that killed Christenson's and Jahna's sister
Nona Moore and Moore's daughter Lindsey, 8. Christenson and
Jahna don't feel his sentence is justified.


The trial
The case went to trial in
Wauchula. Meus' fiancee,
Rebecca Chenoweth, came
down from their home in
Knoxville, Tenn., and still visits
regularly since he cannot leave
the 10th Judicial Circuit.
Meus was convicted and sen-
tenced on Sept. 13, 2003, and it
wasn't until after then that
Meus and Chenoweth learned
Moore's two sisters Beth
Jahna of Avon Park and Dana
Christenson of Tampa did
not want him to go to jail. They
always believed it was an acci-
dent and that Meus did not
deserve jail time.
Christenson said her family's
strong ties to the community
may have played a hand in the
verdict.
"I think the jury made a deci-
sion based on what they thought
Nona (Moore) would have
wanted," Christenson said.
"This is not (it)."

Cases that don't go to trial,
however, usually end up with a

"Meus wanted his day in

Houchin said the investiga-

Carnahan


returns


from Iraq,


re-enlists

E Lions prepare boxes for
troops, 10A
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING After living
through mortar attacks and
working at three Iraqi detention
facilities, U.S. Army Spc.
Amanda Carnahan has taken on
another five years.
A dental assistant, she re-
enlisted in September for
retraining as a unit supply spe-
cialist.
"I got my fill of teeth," she
said.
Carnahan, who first enlisted
in August 2001, was deployed
in Iraq in January 2004. She
arrived back in the United
States at about 4:45 a.m., Jan.
15 for a one-month furlough.
"That was the happiest time,"
she said, "when we actually
landed. It's great to be back on
American ground. It was awe-
some."
She will be stationed at Fort
Campbell, Ky., not as warm as
her first choice, Fort Stewart,
Ga.
"Me and the cold don't get
along," she said. "I am definite-
ly a Florida girl."
Hot and cold
On the way to Iraq, her unit
landed in Germany and she had
to go outside to smoke. She
nearly changed her mind when
a blast of cold air hit her from
the doors.
Once she got to Iraq, the heat
didn't bother her as much as it

did other recruits, even with full
uniform. But at Abu Ghraib,
they couldn't even go outside to
use a Port-O-Let without battle
gear.
Once they reached Kuwait
soil, however, they could relax
and wear T-shirts.
Helping Iraqis
Carnahan said Iraq was when
she did the most dental work
treating both American soldiers
and civilians. -
She learned enough Arabic to
get through the daily work:
"Open," "close," "thank you,"
"you're welcome," "pain,"
"good," and "no good (bad)."
"So many times we'd help an
Iraqi prisoner," she said, "and
they would come up and thank
us because he's out of pain."
Army career
Carnahan originally wanted
to go into journalism, but has
learned she really likes the
army.
"This is the best thing I've
done since high school," she
said. "I love the Army."
She's travels to foreign coun-


tries for free, gets good health
benefits, and has life-long
friends.
In her tent in Iraq, Carnahan
displayed her American flag
and pictures from home. It was
her place to get away from it all.
She leaned a lot On her faith,
too.
"I prayed a lot more," she
said.
At Christmas, being away
from family, Carnahan got a
package from her folks, which
included a banner that read
"Merry Christmas, Amanda"
with photographs of everyone.
Otherwise, Christmas was mis-
erable: Rainy and cold.
Back to States
Back in Highlands County,
Carnahan enjoyed being able to
drive down a road and not
worry about anyone shooting at
,her.
Once when she and two oth-
ers were at Fort Bragg, they
heard a loud boom and hit the
deck. It was shelling practice.
After a year in Iraq, she and
her friends were a bit on edge.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING- A couple of
weeks ago, Florida Attorney
General Charlie Crist. discov-
ered a twist on the old
"Nigerian band scam" where
residents were mailed checks
for deposit. The end result was
that victim's bank information
ultimately could be revealed to
people who then would use the
numbers to clean out their
accounts.
Now, an Avon Park hotelier
has found yet another way the
no-goodniks are trying to bilk
people out of their hard earned
cash.
"They're using hotel rooms,"
said Steve Vanderzee of the
Lake Verona Lodge.
He said he became aware of
the new angle on the fraud
when he got a request to book
some rooms at his bed and
breakfast.
"It happened with a request
from our Internet site," he said.
"They said they wanted to book
two rooms for four people and
asked the price."
Vanderzee e-mailed them
back with all of the pertinent
information. They responded
by sending back a money order
for almost twice the amount.
That's when Vanderzee
became suspicious. However,


that was not the only red flag.
"I noticed that the stamps on
the letter were from Nigeria and
I thought 'ah-ha,' he said.
Vanderzee said the original
e-mail appeared to be from
Athens, Greece and the money
order looked very official but
the $5,000 amount was just too
much.
He took $he money order to
his, bank and had it checked out.
The end result the check was
a complete fraud.
Just like the checks being
sent to residents, if Vanderzee
had put the money into his
account, it would have bounced
and sent the business's banking
information to Nigeria and the
local hoteliers might have been
cleaned out.
Vanderzee immediately
called some friends in the area
to warn them about the possibil-
ity that they too could be given
the same approach.
"It looks very official and if
you weren't careful you could
easily have put it in your bank,"
he said.
Articles about the Nigerian
bank scam in the news had
alerted Vanderzee to the eventu-
ality the scam might be coming
around yet again.
"But this was a different
twist on it," he said.
The Lake Verona Lodge is


billed as "A family owned and
operated bed and -breakfast with
English tearoom."
The 1925-vintage home was
converted into a bed and break-
fast about four years ago.
Overlooking Lake Verona. It
has four large bedrooms for
rent. Vanderzee said they all
have a lake view, hardwood
floors, air conditioning and
color television.
Being English, England and
Europe were the targets for
their advertising. But the book-
ings came to a screeching halt
after the terrorist attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001, in New York
and Washington.
Vanderzee then shifted the
focus to the Uniited States with
heavy emphasis on the Internet.
He said their clientele has come
back slowly but surely.
"It's been hard work," he
said.
Lately, the weakness of the
dollar against the euro has
resulted in overseas tourists
arriving who are interested in
one thing shopping.
"They've been having won-
derful sprees," he said. "We had
two English people over here
and every day all they did was
shop. It was amazing. They lit-
erally came over with empty
suitcases and left with very full
ones. "

Hooked on Bush, local man takes First Family fishing


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRfNG It's one thing
to go fishing, it's quite another
to go fishing with a former
United States president and his
son who also just happens to
be the governor of Florida.
But that's what's happened to
Sebring's Craig Johnson. The
local advisor for Raymond
James Financial Services has
been one of the guides that took
former President George
Herbert Walker Bush and his
son Jeb fishing at Boca Grande
over the recent Christmas holi-
day.
In fact, this is the second year
he's done so.
"One of my good friends,
Phil O'Bannon has been guid-
ing the Bush family for about
12 years," Johnson said. "And
for the last two years he has
asked me to accompany him
and help guide them."
Johnson didn't give away
any secret fishing spots; he sim-
ply said they fish all over the
area.
"The weather more or less
dictates whether we fish the


north end, the south end or in
the bayou. It just depends where
the fish are," he said.
Being one of the owners of
Lake and Bay boats, Johnson
said the entourage used a num-
ber of the company's 20-foot
models, coincidentally named
the Boca Grande. That means
usually two people to a boat
with enough of the watercraft to
accommodate family members
as well as the cadre of secret
service personnel. '
While O'Bannon usually
took the senior Bush and his
son, Johnson guided other
members of the family or secret
service agents.
"I generally have taken
brother Neal.Bush or his sister
Doro," Johnson said.
On any one day, he said there
would be three to four guides
fishing with family members or
carrying the security force.
He gave an interesting
insight into the outing, explain-
ing that the family is very com-
petitive.
"Every time 'they fish they
have contests between the dif-
ferent boats," he said. "George


Sr. sets that up. He assigns the
teams and at the end of the day
they see who caught the most
and so forth."
While the group apparently
has not hooked anything spec-
tacular, Johnson said that they
have had a steady stream of
"nice redfish and nice snook."
Johnson revealed that this
year it was Doro Bush that had
the most luck on the water.
"She was catching a lot more
fish than her dad and Jeb. And
every time she'd catch one
she'd call to them and let them
know. Then when she'd throw
them back she'd make sure
there was a big splash to make
sure they knew she'd caught
another fish," he said.
He described the senior Bush
and his sons as "avid fisher-
men" and said that the 80-year-
old Bush also was an accom-
plished boater.
"He was proud to tell us that
he has a Fountain offshore boat
with three of the new Mercury
Verado engines and that he has
had it up to 70 miles per hour,"
Johnson said.
Despite the fact that the men

Governor Jeb Bush. Johnson has performed as a fishing guide for the Bush family for the past couple of
years.


have a lot to say on legislative
issues at the state and federal
level, Johnson said that the out-
ing is kept apolitical for the


am y-


most part.
"We will sometimes discuss
issues if we think there is some-
thing they need to be aware of,"
he said. "But generally they are
well aware of the issues."
At the end of the four days-
worth of outings, Johnson said
the Bush family takes time to
talk with a number of the peo-
ple that help them during their
stay and make provisions for
photo opportunities if they're


asked.
"They're very courteous and
real nice. They're very down to
earth people," he said. "They're
just great to be around.
Johnson is more than a hob-
byist fisherman. He and
O'Bannon team up to fish in the
ESPN Red Fish Cup circuit.
Out of 125 teams last year the
duo finished in the top 10 with
an eighth place ranking.

Driving for relief

On Jan. 22 at the Sebring International Raceway, the Porsche & BMW Ownei's Club (PBOC)
allowed the use of BMWs on the AutoCross Track to raise funds for Tsunami Relief. Each par-
ticipant paid $10 to drive five laps on the track. At the end of the day, the participant who had
driven the fastest lap won driving lessons at the PBOC. About $2,600 was raised and was then
presented to the Rotary Club of Highlands County, who will make sure it gets to Rotary Clubs in
the areas most impacted by the Tsunami. Those who participated in coordinating this fund-rais

TRIAD/S.A.L.T. Council renew efforts with

local law enforcement to fight crime


Special to the News-Sun
In 1998 the American
Association of Retired Persons,
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Department and the chiefs of
police in Avon Park, Lake
Placid- and Sebring joined
forces to fight crime against
senior citizens.
"This partnership addresses
crime issues that affect the
older citizens in the county and
enhances law enforcement's
services to mature persons-"
said Grace Owens, TRIAD /
S.A.L.T. chairman.
"You only have to listen to
the news on TV or read in the
local papers to see that there's a
need," Owens said.
The TRIAD / S.A.L.T.
Council will meet with Sheriff
Susan Benton, Sebring Police
Chief Tom Dettman, Lake
Placid Chief Phil Williams and
Avon Park Chief Frank
Mercurio at 10 a.m. Thursday,
March 3, in the county commis-
sioners chambers to re-new the
agreement. The public is invit-
ed and encouraged to attend this


important meeting. The agree-
ment outlines the groups mis-
sion to assist senior citizens in
crime prevention and education
to reduce the criminal victim-
ization of older citizens and

ELIZABETH WALKER/News-Sun
Restored Bus 2857 of Montgomery, Ala., Fame is now in Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. The
photograph and its story was printed on a 200'4 calendar, which was received by Bill Goad who restores
old automobiles in his Josephine shop. He removed the photo from the calendar and hung it in his shop.
It is now a part of the Black History Exhibit in the Sebring Historical Society Archives.


Parks bus photo on display at museum


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun Correspondent
"Honey, why do you have
that picture of a bus hanging
here in your shop?," Carol
Goad asked her husband Bill.
Bill Goad restores old auto-
mobiles in his Lake Josephine
shop and uses suppliers from
around the. world.
"Oh, that's a very famous
bus! It is a photograph of Bus
2857, the bus that Rosa Parks
rode in Montgomery, Ala., in
1942, over 50 years ago! It was
on a January' 2004 calendar that
I received and I just thought it
was an interesting piece for the


wall."
Carol Goad's enthusiastic
response inspired her husband
to offer it for display in her
Black History exhibit in the
Sebring Historical Society
Archive.
Sources believe that the inci-
dent of Parks having refused to
give up her seat to a white pas-
senger was the catalyst of the
Civil Rights Movement. The
old bus was retired to a parking
lot where -it remained for years.
When it was discovered as an
important part of history it was
sold to the Henry Ford Museum
in Dearborn, Mich. It is coated


with approximately 27 gallons
of DCC paint and took 25 peo-
ple five months to restore it.
The bus was given a special
wax coating/ageing material
and a mix of Alabama red-clay
dirt was added to the wheels
and other parts. The destination
sign of bus 2857 reads
"Cleveland Avenue."
It now has its rightful place
in American history, both in
Dearborn and the Sebring
Historical Society Archives.
The Archive is open from 8:30
a.m. to noon Monday through
Friday and visitors are wel-
come.

Russian dentists coming to Sebring


Special to the News-Sun
The Sebring and Plant City
Rotary clubs are hosting a dele-
gation of 11 Russian dental
clinics professionals in the area
from April 15-May 1.
This is the fourth Russian
Delegation to be hosted in the
Sebring and Plant City area
since 1999. The delegation is
part of the Productivity
Enhancement Program admin-
istered by the non-profit, non-
governmental Center for
Citizen Initiatives. PEP is a
nationwide program that brings
Russian entrepreneurs and busi-
ness owners to the United
States for intensive industry-
specific business training and
cultural exchange. *
While in the area, the
Russian delegates will stay in
the homes of American volun-
teers and participate in a busi-
ness management training pro-
gram led by local dental servic-
es industry businesses and pro-
fessionals.
"Sebring and Plant City
Rotary clubs have done an out-
standing job arranging a com-
prehensive training schedule
for the Russian delegates," said
Heidi Hartman of CCI.

egates afforded me the opportu-

nity to learn about a different
legal system and reinforced my
confidence in our American
system of justice"? said John
Gardner, Brandon, business
host for the Russian Legal
Services Delegation of 2001.
The two-week training pro-
gram and home stays are gener-
ous contributions of time and
effort from members of the
Sebring and Plant City Rotary
clubs.
The training program aides
Russia's economy by providing
small and medium-sized busi-
nesses with the knowledge and
tools to operate efficiently. The
home stays and cultural pro-
gram are designed to increase
cross-cultural understanding
and build personal connections
between two countries that
were once adversaries.
Local volunteers are working
hard to plan fun and education-
al activities for the Russians
during their stay.
"We enjoyed it very much. I
especially enjoyed the conver-
sations around the dinner table
and the amount of history about
Russia that I learned," said
Kelly Norton, home host for the
Dental Clinics Delegation of


1999.
The Russian Dental Clinics
Delegation is one of more than
400 delegations PEP has
brought to the United States
since 1996.

Every delegation includes a
facilitator (group leader) and a
professional interpreter, who
assist in the transfer of knowl-
edge and ideas between the del-
egates and their American
hosts.
PEP is a program of shared
costs. The U.S. Department of
State, Bureau of Educational
and Cultural Affairs funds basic
operational expenses (50 per-
cent), Russian participants pay
approximately 15 percent, and
an impressive 35 percent of
PEP's cost is comprised of in-
kind contributions and pro-
bono services.
"PEP is a win-win for every-
one fi it brings much needed
training to the Russians, inter-
national connections to
American hosts and trainers,
and a revitalization of commu-
nity links within civic clubs and
American cities," said Sharon
Tennison, CCI founder and
president.

Commission will try to sell

race track bonds locally


Effects of storms still linger


After bonds were
withdrawn for lack
of bids, the board
considered selling
them locally
EDITOR'S NOTE: On Dec.
18, 1969, the News-Sun report-
ed on the county commission's
effort to issue $1 million worth
of track bonds.
Highlands County commis-
sioners are exploring the possi-
bility of local sale of the $1 mil-
lion race track bond issue with-
drawn from the market two
weeks ago.
Sale of the issue, backed by
state race track and jai lai taxes,
was canceled when the county's
fiscal agent failed to get any
bids. Since the cancellation on
December 2, the Legislature
has raised the ceiling on interest
to 7.5 percent.
The county commissioners,
at their meeting Tuesday said
they are reluctant to pay more
than the seven percent set in the
act authorizing the sale.
The board agreed to pursue
Chairman Jean Whitaker's sug-
gestion that all banks in the
county be contacted and
quizzed about possibilities of
finding local buyers for the
bonds.
County Attorney Hue E.
Nunnalee warned the board that
it must sell to a single purchas-
er or "be involved in a hope-
lessly complicated situation".
He added that if enough inter-
ested buyers contacted the fis-
cal agent, Goodbody and Co.,
the agent would probably buy
the bonds for re-sale.
When sold, the bond issue
will finance construction of
several new facilities; a bridge
on Skipper Road, second floor
for the courthouse annex, an
agri-civic center, road and
bridge facilities, county build-
ing at Venus and Avon Park.
Insurance Study In two
separate discussions Tuesday,
the board decided to study the


f4


feasibility of seeking bids for
the county's insurance. At pres-
ent the board has a contract
with Heacock Insurance
Agency Inc. and commissions
are divided among the general
insurance agencies of the coun-
ty.
Ford Heacock Jr. presented a
report on health and accident
insurance showing that for sev-
eral years claims have exceeded
premiums. He recommended
changes in the program, but the
commission countered with
naming a committee of employ-
ees to work out specifications
for a health and accident policy
on which bids will be sought.
Contribute Funds Alvin
Robbins, a representative of
* Land Services Inc., new owner
of Orange Blossom Estates,
attended the meeting Tuesday
and said his firm is willing to
contribute $10,000 or half the
cost of re-building the main
county road through the devel-
opment from Fifth Avenue to
State Road 66.
Commissioner Earl
Crutchfield proposed a com-
mission "work session" to work
out new plans for work on
county roads. Engineer-
Administrator Charles Morgan
said about $82,000 remains in
the road materials fund.
Estimated cost of engineering
and construction on Hicks Road


alone is more than $67,000.
After a lengthy discussion,
the board voted to build a fruit-
loading ramp on county proper-
ty adjacent to State Road 621.
The ramp had been requested
by Lake Henry Groves Inc., but
will serve a dozen or more
groves in the area and reduce
traffic hazards from large trucks
parked on the highway, the
commissioners said.
Canal Maintenance The
board turned thumbs down on a
request from Placid Lakes
Homeowners Association for
maintenance on canals there,
but the request evoked the
hottest debate of the meeting.
,Chairman Whitaker main-
tained that since construction of
the canal raises the tax assess-
ment on the adjoining lots, the
county should accept responsi-
bility for maintaining the water-
ways.
Commissioner Cecil Skipper
and Attorney Nunnalee backed
Administrator Morgan's stand
that canal maintenance is not
automatically county responsi-
bility. Morgan said mainte-
nance for other than drainage
may be illegal and Nunnalee
said maintenance does not go
hand-in-hand with assessment.
"A road in front of the house
increases the value, but that
does not make it a county
road," Nunnalee said.

Sebring Lions to send boxes to military in Iraq


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun Correspondent
Inspired by a visit from
young Anmanda Carnahan, den-
tal hygienist on leave from Iraq.
the Sebring Lions Club decided
to begin filling gift boxes
immediately for the service
men and women in Iraq.
Carnahan mentioned that
many of our soldiers in Iraq do
not receive packages from
home. When a package arrives
for a member of her team, the
team gathers for the opening
and its contents are shared.
A list of the items needed or
desired will be available soon
for mailing to individuals. A
few items that she mentioned
were body lotion, baby wipes,
AT&T phone cards, beef jerky
and other snacks. It takes from
10 days to two weeks for deliv-
ery from the United States to
Iraq. Even crisp cookies usually
remain intact if properly
packed.
When asked how reality in
Iraq compares with the news
aired in the United States,
Carnahan replied with much
vigor that the people are
becoming friendlier as they
learn about the States' purpose
there and see the improvements
in the schools and other facili-
ties.
"The stores are now func-
tioning with merchandise and
food available. At first, when
Iraq prisoners were brought to
the dental clinic they were very
agitated. When they were treat-
ed professionally with the same
care our soldiers were given,
they calmed down. Some would
become emotional and would
even hug us to show their
appreciation. They had not
expected such good treatment.
"This is happening in the
same building that received so
much bad publicity about the
reported abuse of prisoners."
Responding to questions
about supplies and equipment,
Carnahan said that at first, sup-
plies and equipment were slow
in arriving, but it is much better
now and promotions are steady.
Carnahan's six-member team
is part of the 60-member Unit
257 Medical Company of the
- 44th Medical Brigade. This is


ELIZABETH WALKER/News-Sun
Amanda Carnahan receives appreciation certificate from Lions president Norman Smith for her service
in Iraq and sharing that information with the Sebring Lion's Club. *


the only Airborne Dental
Company in the United States.
Her team serves approximately
seven sites located in the pris-
ons.
Carnahan graduated from
Lake Placid High School and
entered military service Aug.
22, 2001. She trained in Fort
Sam Houston, Texas, and
arrived in Iraq on Jan. 18, 2004.
She was stationed in Abu
Ghraib with living quarters in
an old warehouse in the prison
compound.
She has flown in several
types of helicopters, driven
huge trucks in convoys, lived in
the over-heated dusty desert
and to her surprise, saw palm
trees in Iraq. She has been in
seven European countries.
Carnahan received a
Commendation Medal for her
service and has been on leave in
Florida since Jan. 15. She will
report to Fort Bragg Feb. 23
then transfer to Fort Dee in
Virginia where she will receive
special supply training.
She enjoys military service
and has just signed on for five


more years.
In her free time she enjoys
reading, writing letters and
hanging out with friends.
Reading material is limited in
Iraq, but exchange books can be
found in the MWR (morale,
welfare and recreation room).
She experienced a pleasant
surprise recently when a superi-
or officer told her he had just
met a man from Lake Placid; he
turned out to be an old class-
mate from Lake Placid and they


enjoyed exchanging memories
of home.
Tearfully, young Carnahan
expressed her surprise at the
outpouring of appreciation for
her visit and her service as well
as that for the sacrifices of the
military personnel. She did not
expect such an overwhelming
welcome.
Carnahan is the daughter of
Deborah Carnahan, Highlands
County utilities coordinator and
inspector.

Continued from 1A

The four teenage bank rob-
bers who were recently appre-

In the third place, many
teenagers find the gangs glam-
orous, and their members
heroes. The desire to belong
and have status is a powerful
pull, and keeps many teens


loyal to the gang.
Finally the gangs are quick to
punish and intimidate, some-
times forcing membership
despite a person's other wishes.
In' other words, once in, it is
almost impossible to get out.
Gangs are perhaps most dan-
gerous when they have existed
long enough to graduate mem-
bers out of school and onto the
street. At that point a gang may
be so entrenched in a neighbor-
hood it becomes impossible to
defeat.
That is the fear down in Palm
Beach, where gang activity was
ignored for years until it took
over the county. The problem is


considered so dangerous a spe-
cial, 190-officer school police
force has been created, and a
training center to teach success-
ful anti-gang techniques is get-
ting under way in Boca Raton.
Kevin Kuschel, a gang spe-
cial intelligence officer with the
Palm Beach County School
Police, spends some of his time
warning others. "Don't make
our mistake," is his main mes-
sage.
Recently he was here in
Highlands County, where he
pointed out signs of activity to
local officials.
The sheriff's office has taken
notice as well, with Sheriff


Susan Benton concerned
enough to address school'
administrators and local law
enforcement officers.

Captain Mark Schrader, of
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, said that the problem is
not severe, but some signs and
symptoms, some red flags, have
been identified, which is why
the department is choosing to
start a multi-agency task force
to combat the problem before it


becomes overwhelming.
Superintendent Wally Cox
and administrators at the school
district are also paying atten-
tion, while the Highlands
County Community Coalition
and the Children's Services
Council are looking to see how
to best become involved.

Currently schools are not
talking to each other about this
problem, but some people think
it would be a good idea.


Kuschel warns that gangs can
not be defeated, they must be
won over. And the best way to
do that is to have sound intelli-
gence. The more law enforce-
ment and educators talk among
themselves, and the more infor-
mation they share, the better the
chances for success.

Part two looks at some suc-
cessful anti-gang methods, and
a student program at APMS
which is making a difference.

Taylor said.
As part of the process,
builders have knocked out win-
dows in the second floor and
replaced them with French
doors that will open onto a
small .balcony.
Taylor pointed out that the
work that has been performed
to date has all been paid for by
developer Mfarc Shenker.
The work is supposed to be
inspected by Sebring Building
Official Jim Jacobs. However,
he has not been to work for the
past week and it may be a while
before he is on the job again.
"He was out on Monday
because he didn't feel good,
then he went to the hospital on
Tuesday," Sebring City Clerk
Kathy Haley said.
Currently he is in Florida
Hospital Orlando.
Haley said the city of Sebring
will hire Hank Eures in the
interim. Eures currently does
building official duties for the

that much land is environmen-
tally sensitive," Pontius said.
The state of Florida has run
into this problem, and with 25
percent of the total land area of
the county including that on
the Avon Park Air Force Range
marked as conservation or
- environmentally sensitive,


city of Avon Park.
Haley said the plan is to hire
him for about 20 hours per
week until Jacobs can return to
his duties.
"Mr. Eures works in the
mornings in Avon Park," Haley
said. We're going to have him
come in and do building inspec-
tions here in Sebring in the
afternoons."
The matter is scheduled to
come up before the, Sebring
City Council at its meeting
Tuesday night.
Avon Park and Sebring
already have an interlocal
agreement where the two cities
help each other in various ways.
Under the proposed agreement,
the city of Sebring would pay
Eures on the same scale as his
Avon Park salary.
Haley said Eures would have
plenty to do once he takes over.
"We're gettirig a half sheet of
inspections per day that need to
be done," she said.
Reportedly, Jacobs has been
out to look at work at the hotel
in the past but building depart-
ment officials said to date there


building such a park is going to
be difficult. It would have to be
a ranch or grove that has been
largely undisturbed for state
agencies to sign off on the idea.

Still, Pontius said a lot of
people would use the park
rather than face a fine for riding
in the wrong area, Cowell
agrees. He believes the county
could attract thousands of peo-


has been no official inspection
of the property.
Although there appears to
have been a great deal of work
done on the hotel, both the for-
mer project manager and the
former contractor have charged
that it was unlicensed work that
they contend was not all done to
code.
Puckett believes that workers
painted over mold. He also
pointed out that the French
doors were installed improperly
and had to be removed and rein-
stalled at Jacobs' instruction.
Taylor said that they are in
final negotiations with the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs to get those
state officials to sign off on a
$5.2 million United States
Department of Housing and
Urban Development Section
108 loan.
"We're asking for clarifica-
tion on some things," Taylor
said.
However, a call to the DCA
to find out the status of those
negotiations was not returned
by press time.

he's sold 1,500 ATVs. about an

are not usable.
In addition to the bombing
ranges there are landing zones
for helicopters as well as para-
chute drop tones.
There also is an auxiliary air-
field, a small arms range and
obstacle course. Walden also
showed photographs of targets
that resembled a surface to- air
missile site, a mock airstrip and
a mock urban village.
"The pilots come in and we
place targets in the urban vil-
lage so they can practice hitting
them without causing collateral
damage," he said.
V'lden 'revealed that the
Avon Park range was the last


stop for many pilots before they
are deployed to Iraq and
Afghanistan.
But there are many civilian
uses for the range. Wildlife
Biologist John Bridges talked
about the outdoor recreation
activities including hunting,
fishing, camping and hiking.
"We have 82,000 acres that
are open to the public," he said.
Bridges showed photos of
the three campgrounds that are
on site, the three different lakes
as well as the Kissimmee River
that are available for fishing.
He also talked about the 11
miles of the Florida National
Scenic Trail that run through
the range, which is perfect for
hiking.
"Encroachment around the
range has run a lot of animals in


here," he said. "We have nine
threatened or endangered ani-
mals and two threatened or
endangered plants."
Bridges took the time to
solicit for volunteers for the
public programs, while Walden
revealed that the field support
services was in search of local
vendors to do many different
types of jobs at the range.
Also addressing the crowd
were new Avon Park
Correctional Institution Warden
Don Davis as well as the direc-
tor of the Avon Park Youth
Academy, Pete Zeegers.
"We need to do this more
often," Walden said looking at
the crowd. "We're always glad
to have events like this if there's
an interest.

WITH TUFFLEY

Ch ristopher Tuffley,


Beauties and

the beast
My admiration for women
knows no bounds. I had no
idea they suffered so much for
beauty.
Not that guys can't take
pain hey, we can wince
with the best of them. But for
us, pain has to have a purpose,
like catching the winning
touchdown while running on a
broken ankle. Most of us don't'
think in terms of suffering for
smoother skin. It's a guy thing.
Now don't get me wrong,
most of what goes on at the
Back in Touch Day Spa &
Apothecary is soothing and
stress relieving. There is soft
and relaxing music, dimmed
lights and flickering candles,
hot towels and rose petals.
Aroma therapy wafts in the air
and the technicians are gentle.
The atmosphere is tranquil and
romantic.
But look out, because while
the staff at Back in Touch
wants you to leave refreshed,
they also want you to leave
improved, and we all know
whfit that means.
Take facials, for example,
they'll kill you, or at least con-
vince you you're better off
dead. Let me explain.
I got to the spa in the late
morning, and after learning
about the business and going
on a tour of the spa, I started
to work bringing water to
newly arrived customers and
helping fold a load of laundry

See BEAST, page 16A


Laid back, but working hard


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Melissa Quails
had been a client at the Back in
Touch Day Spa & Apothecary
for some time. In fact, she liked
the place enough that she often
recommended it to her friends.
"It was an affordable indul-
gence," she said recently.
. Quails and her husband,
Tony, who also own and operate
a medical transcription service,
were looking to broaden their
business interests when Quails
heard the owner of her favorite
place was relocating and had
the spa up for sale. She acted
immediately, and the rest is his-
tory.
Qualls and her staff are in
business to make people feel


and look better. Everyone who
works there has specialized
training of one kind or another.
The certifications are needed
because the spa offers a full
range of skin and body treat-
ments.
There are several varieties of
massage available, for example,
from the de-stressor to the deep
tissue to the hot stone, and the
massage therapist must be
licensed.
A esthetician (skin specialist)
is available for facials, which
are sometimes about more than
beauty. Teenagers suffering
acne,, for example, have been
helped with the process, which
cleans, defoliates and re-
hydrates skin.
In addition to cosmetology


school, an esthetician requires
another nine weeks of instruc-
tion.
Manicures and pedicures are
available too, as are specialized
treatments for cellulite and the
perfect airbrush tan. All require
special training or licensing.
A skilled technician can
make a nice living in the field.
Experienced massage therapists
can make $40,000 a year, and
estheticians $30,000.
Of course it takes more than
technical skill for a spa to be
successful there is a great
deal of cleaning up to do, and a
staff has to be attentive and in
touch, often when in a rush.
At Back in Touch, the staff
work to know their clients, the
vast majority of which are


women, but men are beginning
to come in more often.
"If you don't have the time or
the money to take a vacation,"
Quails said, "you can come in
here for an hour and really
relax." Then she grinned, "And
the couple's massage is a great
date night for married folk
looking to do something differ-
ent."


Back in Touch offers pack-
ages as well as single treat-
ments, takes credit cards, and
requires appointments. It is
open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tuesday through Thursday; 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday; and 8
a.m. to 2.p.m. Saturday. It is at
2533 U. S. 27 S. The telephone
number is 402-0711.

Coldwell Banker Highlands Properties earns ranking


Coldwell Banker Highlands
Properties is celebrating the
recent announcement that
Coldwell Banker Real Estate
Corporation has earned the
ranking for "Highest Overall
Satisfaction For Repeat Home
Buyers Among National Full
Service Real Estate Firms from
J.D. Power and Associates.
The J.D. Power and
Associates 2004 Home
Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Study
found that the Coldwell Banker
brand ranked higher than other
national real estate brands in
"goodwill" and "broker rela-


tions" among repeat home buy-
ers. J.D. Power and Associates
conducts quality and customer
satisfaction studies across a
variety of industries including
real estate.
"This is a great designation
and proof that our sales associ-
ates strive for excellence," said
Jim Otterman, broker/owner at
Coldwell Banker Highlands
Properties. "Buying and selling
a home can be both complicated
and stressful for people. Our
sales associates go the extra
mile to support their clients dur-
ing the process."


"We are honored to be recog-
nized by J.D. Power and
Associates for the highest
ranked customer satisfaction
with repeat homebuyers," said
Jim Gillespie, president and
chief executive officer of
Coldwell Banker Real Estate
Corporation. "It speaks vol-
umes that consumers continue
to have positive experiences
with Coldwell Banker. We are
proud of the professionalism
and hard work of the System's
sales associates who play an
integral role in this top rank-
ing."


Conducted during April and
May 2004, the J.D. Power and
Associates 2004 Home
Buyer/Seller Satisfaction Study
evaluated the top five national
real estate brands and identified
key factors of customer satis-
faction in the home buying or
selling process. Results are
based on responses from 4,977
home buyers and sellers.

Lake Placid, Sebring and just

Lakes). The staff can be
reached at 465-1234, 382-3157

BEAST
continued from 13A
non-stop on busy ones).
I learned how to air brush a
tan onto human skin, and then
I shadowed esthetician (skin
specialist) Maria Fabela as she
did a facial on Joyce Edwards,
a loyal customer of many
years.
At that point the spa's
owner, Melissa Quails came to
me and explained that if I were
a true new employee, I would
be expected to use every serv-
ice offered so I could under-
stand what each entailed, and
be able describe it to my cus-
tomers. Usually, Quails said,
new hires begin with a facial.
Well, OK, this is Tuffin' It
With Tuffley after all, and how
tough can getting a facial be?
Cucumbers on the eyes can't
be all bad, can they? So, I said


I'd do it.
I should have remembered
that Edwards, in the course of
her facial, had pointed to the
tool Fabela was using to
remove blemishes and said,
"This is her instrument of tor-
ture."
I should have guessed that
Fabela's angelic face hid the
mind of a drill instructor. A
very serious minded, highly
motivated drill instructor,
whose sole goal in life was to
clear my face of every black-
head.
"A facial is good for relax-
ation," Fabela said, "but the
point is also to have clean
skin."
First she applied a cleanser,
then steam, then an exfoliant
(dead skin remover), then a
mask with anti-bacterial prop-
erties and a toner.
Somewhere in there, Fabela
began to work with her metal


tool, and that's when the pain
began as she removed every
blemish in sight, and maybe a
freckle or two as well.
Fortunately, the technicians
at the Back in Touch Day Spa,
are not sadists. When they
remove a blackhead, or hot
wax away unwanted hair, they
are not interested in inflicting
pain, (and you know pain is on
the way when the technician
asks, "ready?" before she
yanks the wax).
No, the technicians don't
want to hurt anyone. It's just
that they know the cold hard
truth: Beauty doesn't come
easily, and they want everyone
to leave looking their best. If
that entails a little ... discom-
fort, well, that's a price most
women understand.
It's also why every Back in
Touch facial concludes with a
mini-massage of the shoulders,
neck, face and hands.


By the time I got up off the
table, I was so mellowed I'd
forgotten that only a few min-
utes earlier I had wanted to die.
And bless me if I didn't.look
better when I snuck a peek at
myself in the mirror the next
morning.
My skin really was clearer.
And I have to admit, it also felt
softer, kind of like a new car
with a satin finish after a per-
fect detailing job. Which I
guess makes it a kind of a guy
thing after all.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley will be bowled over as
he works at the Kegel Bowling
Center Any business person
who has a job they would to
spotlight in the Tuffin'It With

Animal rights irate over


Kraft's road
Associated Press
TRENTON, N.J. Animal
rights activists are disgusted by'
a new candy from Kraft Foods
Inc. that's shaped like critters
run over by cars complete
with tire treads.
The fruity-flavored Trolli
Road Kill Gummi Candy in
shapes of partly flattened
snakes, chickens and squirrels
- fosters cruelty toward ani-
mals, according to the New
Jersey Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals.
"It sends the wrong message
to children, that it's OK to harm
animals. And that's the wrong
message, especially from a so-
called wholesome corporation
like Kraft," said society


kill candy
spokesman Matthew Stanton.
The society is considering
petition drives, boycotts and
letter-writing campaigns to get
the candy pulled from the mar-
ket, Stanton said.
After receiving a complaint
from the NJSPCA Wednesday,
Kraft officials pulled an ani-
mated advertisement from
Trolli's Web site that featured
car headlights and animals. No
other decisions on changes
have been made, said Kraft
spokesman Larry Baumann.
"If you look across the
Gummi category we certainly
have many products that are
offbeat, and that's what we
were doing in this case,"
Baumann said. "We didn't
mean to offend anyone."

Week recognizes
student services

Editor:
In recognition of National
Student Services Week, I
would like to applaud The
School Board of Highlands
County Student Services Team.
This group of professionals
include school guidance coun-
selors, psychologists, social
workers, health resource RN
and Safe and Drug Free schools
resource teacher. The team's
support staff also includes a
court liaison and two
home/school liaisons.
These staff members are
dedicated individuals working
together to meet the needs of
our students. Students need


em o 000


tial assistance and they are
doing it well.
Also, a special thank you to
Janice Walker, of Heartland
National Bank, for the 'gener-
ous donation that allowed us to
treat everyone to a complimen-
tary lunch at a regularly sched-

To all of you thanks for all
you do.

Why does the idea of live
bombings at the Avon Park
Air Force Range concern
you?

It is ironic that with the fer-
vor of supporting our troops in
Iraq, there are complaints about
the bombing operation training
at the Air Force Range.
It is essential that new strate-
gies and techniques be devel-
oped to meet the challenge of
terrorist attacks on military and
civilian targets alike.
Since the Navy had to leave
Puerto Rico, the AF Range


facility was the most feasible
one available .for this mission.
One would think that the incon-
venience of noise a few days a
.week could be tolerated if this
training would help save some
lives and bring this war to a
conclusion sooner. A bomb
falling outside the perimeter
would be a rarity, as the opera-
tions are closely monitored.
As far as the environmental
concern, the public is not aware
that this area has been environ-'
mentally impacted since 1900.
One of the missions of the
AF Range management is the


cleanup of a number of sites
existing long before the Air
Force took over this range. In
fact, the most serious environ-
mental conditions were left
behind by civilian enterprises
from cattle, farming and indus-
trial operations.
The AF Range command has
been quite conscientious about
its impact on the surrounding
areas of Highlands and Polk
counties and have taken what-
ever precautions available to be
a good neighbor.

'Even bad books are books and therefore sacred.'


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEl
Sports Editor


It is a given that not every-
one in this country supports
what we are doing in Iraq.
There is nothing wrong with
disagreeing with each other.
But it is one thing to write. the
leaders of our nation, letters to
the editors of our papers, or
even a column, criticizing our
Iraqi policy. It is quite another
thing to write a man or woman
who has left home and family
to defend our nation and take
potshots at him or her while
calling it support.
This teacher and the parents
of these students have failed to
educate the young people in
their charge in these basic prin-
ciples. They have eqiiated free-
dom of expression with the
right to be rude. While under
the freedoms we enjoy one can
send poison pen letters to our
men and women overseas that
does not mean one should.
As I researched this column,
I came across an e-mail address
of Pfc. Jacob's sister. With her
-. .permission, I am posting two
""addresses you can use to send
-truly supportive letters and e-
mails to this young man. If you
have e-mail send it to
GIfather@yahoo.com. Those
who prefer snail mailcan use
the following address: PFC
Jacobs c/o Christine Engallena,
.P.O. Box 1067, Jackson, NJ
''08527.
Let's help show the sixth-
graders who presumably wrote


GLINTER GRASS, German writer, 1959 to support the troops how it is
done.


LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware

Wrong writing
Soldiers like to get letters
.from home. They also seem to
enjoy letters from munchkins
in the school system. So When
Pfc. Rob Jacobs of New Jersey
was asked for his address by a
teacher who wanted his stu-
dents to send the soldier "let-
ters of support," he seemed
happy to give it.
Pfc. Jacobs isn't so happy
about that at the moment,
according to his dad, Rob
Jacobs Sr. Apparently, while
the 21 letters for the most part
said something to the effect that
they supported the troops,
many of them were also includ-
ed swipes at the troops, the war
in Iraq, and President Bush.
One student wrote that she
believed that Jacobs' was
"being forced to kill innoGent -
people." Another student
accused soldiers of "destroying
holy places like mosques." Yet
another child predicted that
with Bush's re-election, "only
50 or 100 [soldiers] will sur-
vive."
One of the ironies of the sit-
uation is that Jacobs is current-
ly stationed in Korea, not Iraq.
It is possible he will be
assigned to Iraq in the near
future, but at the moment he is
far from that battlefield.
The teacher of these chil-
dren, Alex Kunhardt, assigned
the letters as part of a social
studies assignment. In a cover
letter, that was sent with the
missives, he wrote that while
the students came from a vari-
ety of backgrounds, they all
supported the American sol-
dier.
It is perhaps understandable
that Pfc. Jacobs is having a
problem believing that. His
father is outraged and has been
quite vocal about his opinion ;
about the situation. He wants
assurances from the school
board that supervises this par-
ticular Brooklyn junior high
school that this incident will
not be repeated.
The leacher in the middle'of
this -story- had ,not made any
public comment as I type this
column. The city's department
of education plans to send Pfc.
Jacobs a letter of apology. The
school's principal, Xavier
Costello, issued the following
statement: "While we would
never censor anything that our
children write, we sincerely
apologize for forwarding letters
that were in any way inappro-
priate to Pfc. Jacobs. This.
assignment was not intended to
be insensitive, but to be sup-
portive of the men and women
in service to our nation."
OK. Anyone who khows me
knows I am a big fan of the
First Amendment. I am not for
censoring views that oppose
my own. Fortunately, this is not
a question of censorship. It is a
question of courtesy, appropri-
ateness, and directing your
complaints to the right people.

Indiana group marks 50


years of Sebring picnics


'A taste of home'
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING You see it in
the papers all the time: Folks
from some up-north city or
county or state getting together
here in Highlands County dur-
ing the winter for a day. Our
central Florida location makes
it an ideal meeting location.
Perhaps the prize as grand-
daddy of all these geographic
get-togethers should go to the
folks from Steuben County,
Ind., in the northeast part of the
state (Angola is the county
seat). That's because on Feb.
14, they celebrated their 50th
anniversary of what they call
"The Steuben County Florida
Picnic."
That's 50 percent as in a half-
century of singing "Back Home
Again in Indiana," of bringing
in dishes of down-home
Indiana cooking, of handshakes
and hugs, of memories, of find-
ing long lost friends. Fifty -
count 'em 50!
These picnics were first held
at Highlands Hammock State
Park and some 20 or 25 years
ago the location was changed to
the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center. Katherine and
Gerald Miller, originally from
Angola but now living in Avon
Park, recalled attending several
of those park picnics.
"We met in an open pavilion,
with no closed sides.
Sometimes it was windy, rainy
and cold."
At this year's picnic, 158
folks showed up, somewhat less
than last year but it included
about three dozen first-timers.
Most came from outside of
Highlands County, but a dozen
or so either live or winter with-
in the county.
Maggie Vaughn, a full-time
Sebring resident since 1995,
said she's been attending these
picnics "every year for 20
.:_years. I like seeing old friends
and this year I've seen more


LARRY LEVEY/News-Sun
Gerald and Katherine Miller, former residents of Angola, Ind., but
living in Avon Park since 1981, recall attending the Steuben County
picnics when they were held at Highlands Hammock State Park. In
more recent years, the yearly get-togethers have been held at the
Agri-Civic Center, although next year the group will meet at
Homer's.


people I know than I've seen in
years, although the crowd is
down. Likely because of the
hurricanes, a lot of people did-
n't come back."
One man she reminisced
with this year had been her
neighbor many years ago. "We
used to play together as kids."
Serving on the planning
committee for the picnic were
Ron and Barb Rose, who winter
at Sebring Falls.
"We've been coming to the
picnics for 12-15 years," Barb
said. "We like seeing people we
haven't seen since last summer.
It's like a taste of home."
Ed and Peg White, who live
17 miles from Angola across
the state line in Michigan,
spend theif winters 'at


Buttonwood Bay. They've been
attending these annual picnics
for 10 years now. Why? "To eat
some of. that Steuben County
food," Peg said.
In an ironic twist, the new
chairman for next year is
Richard Baker. His parents,
R.A. and Frances Baker, were
among the Steuben County res-
idents wintering in Florida who
first started the picnics 50 years
ago.
"They lived somewhere on
Lake Jackson," he said.
Next year's picnic will be
held Feb. 14 but it won't be
a picnic. The group voted to
hold the affair in a different
location: Homer's. Which
means, of course, no more of
that "Steuben County food!"

Sebring's Germaine wins state championship


By JEFF CANTWELL and
SCOTT DRESSEL
News-Sun
LAKELAND Through all
,the ups and downs and bumps
and bruises of Blake
Germaine's stellar wrestling
career at Sebring, it wasn't until
the final winter when he finally
realized his dream of winning a
state championship. After plac-
ing second last year, anything
but a championship has been
way out of Germaine's thinking
in this, his senior year.
For the second straight night,
Germaine (48-2) needed over-
time this time only one to
beat Suwanee's Lee Laxton 3-1
in the 145-pound championship
match at the Lakeland Center
Saturday night. Germaine
scored the winning two points
on a takedown with 32 seconds
remaining in overtime.
Germaine was already com-
paring the experiences
moments after the match.

Streaks hold


off Devils in


Early Bird

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK It wasn't pretty, but the
Blue Streaks will take it.
Sebring lost an early 3-0 lead, but held
off a fervent challenge from Avon Park for
a 5-4 win Saturday and third place in the
Jarrett Ford Early Bird Tournament at Head
Field.
"A win up here is always tough," Sebring
head coach Hoppy Rewis said. "They know
each other so well; both of us can-do things
Sebring against other people we can't
s do against each other."
5 Nonetheless, Dusty
Campbell was able to send
Avon Park out a two-run homer in the
.first en route to a 3-for-3
4 afternoon, and second base-
man Colt Williams leaped to
snag Luke Sedlock's liner, ending the
game.
"At the end of the game there, three inch-
es and it's tied again," Avon P4rk head
coach Mort Jackson said.
Still, Jackson was pleased that his team
had tied it twice before, taking advantage of
two Sebring errors for three runs in the sec-
ond and third, and using Garrett Duke's
leadoff walk to set up a confrontation
between reliever Chaz Abeln and pinch hit-
ter Devaris Strange in the sixth.


"This feels a lot better than
last year," he said. "I waited
until he got tired. I just hoped I
wouldn't get tired before him. I
can't believe I won."
Germaine also set the school
record for most wins in a sea-
son, breaking Joe Stump's 2004
record by two, but said that was
nothing without a title to go
along with it.
"That doesn't compare to
winning a state championship,"
he said. "That was my goal.
After last year, I just wanted to
win state. After regionals, I had
doubts, but that changed."
Both wrestlers skirmished
through the first period with
neither gaining an advantage as
the period ended in a scoreless
tie. Germaine scored an escape
midway through the second
period to go up 1-0 and held
that lead until Laxton got an .
escape to tie things up with 28
seconds left in the third period


to force overtime.
Germaine scored the winning
takedown with an aggressive
move on Laxton, taking a shot
and grabbing Laxton's legs and
taking him to the mat to end the
match.
Sebring coach Dave
Cunningham was a bundle of
nerves, even after the match.
"He makes me nervous,, that
boy," Cunningham said.
"Double overtime in the semis
and now this. He had a great
year with an awesome record.
He had a fluke loss at regional,
but that got him refocused."
Germaine is the first Blue
Streak to make it to two cham-
pionship matches in a row since
Todd Yohman in 1994-95 and
the first champion since Charles
Carrero in 1997. Carrero was
on hand Saturday to witness
Germaine's title. His title is
Sebring's 11th individual
crown.


Germaine got to the finals by
winning his second rematch of
the state tournament. After
beating David .Deaton of
Panama City-Bay in the first
round for the second year in a
row, Germaine had to wrestle
Victor Porter of Crawfordville-
Wakulla in the semifinals
Friday night in a repeat of last
year's semifinal.
In 2004, Germaine got a 4-2
victory to make it to the finals
and Friday's match was even
closer. Both wrestlers could
only manage one escape apiece
in regulation, sending the match
to overtime tied 1-1. It was still
tied after the first overtime,
leading to a 30-second, winner-
take-all second overtime.
By virtue of scoring the first
point of the match, Porter got to
pick his starting position and
chose down. Germaine had to
hold his advantage for the 30
See NONE, Page 3B


Strange kept fouling off deliveries until,
on the eighth pitch of the at-bat, he stroked
a base hit into left-center field and scored
Duke to make it 4-4.
"I like my team," Jackson said. We've
got a good young bunch; I started five
sophomores again today. I like what I see.
They've got a lot of fight and a lot of heart.
I'm very encouraged."
Yet Abeln was not through, laying down
a sacrifice that let a hustling Ryan
Williams, who had led off with a walk, go
from first to third. From there, Williams
came home with the winning run on a Tony
Vazquez sacrifice fly, and Abeln (1-0) shut
the door in the seventh for the win.
"We haven't been able to get him much "


time at pitcher," Rewis said of Abeln, who
gave up four hits and a run in three innings
of work. "We worked him at catcher all
spring, so he's thrown a little bit, but he
hasn't had the work out there on the mound
that he should have."
Abeln followed Kiko Vazquez, who gave
up only two hits and didn't allow an earned
run, but was haunted by his defense.
"They're not going to hit Kiko," Rewis
said. "It's almost like he's snakebitten. If
something can happen ... it seems like it
always happens when he's pitching."
In contrast, the Red Devils never com-
mitted an error, allowing Robert Lewis (0-

go to 3-0
BY JOHN RITTER

LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid continued to roll as
Highlands County's only
unbeaten baseball team
with its second mercy rule
win of the year Friday
night.
The Dragons (3-0) scored
in every inning, routing
Lakeland Christian 14-1 in
five innings, moving their
season run total to 39 in
three games.
"If you can get off to a
good start a lot of times just

formance.
"That's in

fident about themselves and

"Well, we're trying to get
some things accomplished
with our hitting," Coomes
said. "And we're starting to
make some progress and
that's the big thing."
P.J. Milisci picked up the
win throwing four innings,
allowing only four base
runners while striking out
two.
"P.J. pitched (last)

Dragons

expecting

good season
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID Most
of Dragons are new, but
head coach Dan Coomes
believes they can be
improved, too.
Just two starters are back
from last year's 8-20 team,
but Coomes, familiar with
most of the new players
from varsity backup roles or
junior varsity duty, believes
his team can make a leap.
"I think we should win
15-20 ballgames this year,"
he said. "If our kids come
out and play the way we're
supposed to, I see no reason
we won't compete for the
district, and there's no rea-
son we can't win a district."
Still, the Green Dragons
must scrap. .
"I think we'll be a type of
team that has to manufac-
ture some runs, has to play
good defense, and our
pitching has to throw
strikes," he said. "It's a typ-
ical high school team. We
don't have a lot of power,
but we run the bases pretty
well."

Istokpoga

yielding big

bass, specks

The
folks down
at Hender-
son's Fish
7Camp are
still bring-
ing in
S good
stringers
of crap-
OUTDOORS pies.
Catches of
LLOYD JONES 10 to 15
-have been
quite com-
mon this past week. The earli-
er cold snap had slowed the
fishing, but anglers are catch-
ing more and larger specks
now that the water is warmer.
Bass fishing has improved
with catches of 5- to 8-
pounders showing up in live
wells of those fishing early in
the day and later in the after-
noon. Betty Hill, who helps
out around the camp when
needed, tells me that Terry
Trimble, who spends a lot of
time working at the camp,
caught a 10-pound, 2-ounce
largemouth this past week.
Maybe the cool weather we
had got the best of Terry. I
hear that he is in the hospital
with pneumonia. It seems it
started out as a cold and got
progressively worse. I'm sorry
and wish him a speedy recov-
ery. Terry has caught some
awfully large bass out of Lake
Istokpoga including one that
weighed in at 12 pounds, 2
ounces. That's a mighty big
bass. So Terry, hurry up, get
well, get back out on the lake
and show us how it's done.
I was at the camp on
Tuesday and would have liked
to have met the owner of
Henderson's Fish Camp, but
Mabel Henderson was enjoy-
ing the day out on the lake
with a brother who is visiting
from the northern climes.
Maybe next time.
Istokpoga has produced
some trophy bass this month.
Jim Witt, who is a guest from
up north, landed a 10-pound,
12-ounce largemouth on Feb.
19 and, not to be outdone,
Mike Herron, also a guest at
the camp, caught a 10-pound,
2-ounce bass on the same day.
Speck fishermen are also
bringing in a lot of their
favorite quarry while fishing
out of Trails End Fishing
Resort on Cowhouse Road on
the east side of Lake
Istokpoga. Gary Albin, the
owner of the resort, says that
while night fishing has been
more productive, those fishing
during the day are catching
larger fish.
The bass fishing also picked
up last week with several fish
in the 6- to 8-pound range
being caught. Most of those
caught were taken on plastic
worms and crawfish with one
better than 10 pounds reported
last Saturday. The bass.are also
hitting on spinner baits. The
most popular right now is the
Okeechobee Special. You can
get this lure with different col-
ored skirts, but the bass have
been particularly fond of those
with white skirts.
I met Gary Albin and his
pretty wife, Janice, just a few
weeks ago. Coming from
Illinois, they purchased Trail's
End several months ago and
are very happy to be in the
land of sunshine.
For you fellows who like to
participate in local bass tour-
naments, you'd better hurry
and get your entry form for the
Eighth Annual Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce bass
tournament to be held April
10; on Lake June.
Entry forms are available at
either lake Placid Marine or
Central Florida Yamaha in
Lake Placid. This is a team
tournament and entries, will be
limited to the first 50 boats


entered. It will cost each team
$60. An additional $20 will
put a team in the competition
for largest bass of the day.
Boats will launch at safe light
with weigh-in at 2:30 p.m..
When you are on the lake,
remember to wear that life
jacket and if you happen to
bring in a big old bass, you
can call me at 655-1920. I
would love to hear about it.
Maybe you can even match
Terry's 12-pounder.

Panthers defend

their home turf
The South Florida Community
College Panthers had a good couple of
days at home Friday and Saturday.
Tim Graeser (above) got one of his
team's 35 hits in this at bat against
Clearwater Christian College on
Saturday as the Panthers (18-9-1)
rolled to a five-inning, 21-1 win in the
first game and a 17-3 rout in game
two. Friday night, SFCC got a two-
out, two-run single from Marcos
Causey to beat Lake-Sumter, 4-3. Also
on Friday, Christina Morrow (right)
threw a two-hitter as the Lady
Panthers handled Miami-Dade 6-1 at
Panther Field to improve to 6-8 on the
season. SFCC will have another big
day on Monday when the U.S. Army
Drill Team puts on a show at 5:30
p.m., prior to the first pitch of the
baseball game against Florida
Southern.

added. "He only threw 48 or 52 pitches, I think it
was, so he did really good. Tonight he came out
and I told him, 'Just take your time, don't try to
over throw it or anything,' and he threw strikes
and kept them off balance and that was the big
thing."
Lake Placid also took advantage of eight wild
pitches and three errors by the Vikings and stole
five bases.
"When you've got a pitcher who's not throw-
ing a lot of strikes, that's the hardest thing,"
Coomes said. "You end up swinging at bad stuff
and popping it up and beating it into the ground,
but we did a pretty good job."
That offense gave Milisci all the support he
needed in the first inning after leadoff batter
Steven Levine was hit by a pitch and advanced to
third on a wild pickoff attempt. Turetsky then
drove him home with a single and, after loading

not overpowering, has enough
arms that can throw strikes.
"They all throw 80, or a little
bit harder than that. Nobody's
going to blow anybody away hll
the time," Coomes said.
"They're going to throw strikes,
mix the pitches up, and go from
there."
P.J. Milisci started and won
the opener against Sonrise
Christian on Tuesday, and he'll
be counted on to anchor the
staff.
"He's played varsity for four
years, and he brings a lot of
composure to the mound,"
Coomes said.
He'll be splitting the starts in
the early going with last year's
returning relief ace, Brandon
Bierman.
"Bierman has just unbeliev-
able movement on the ball,"
Coomes said. "He's the most
unhittable person we have
when he's on."
Brandon Bair and Eddie
Peifer, two players just off of
the basketball team, will com-
prise the early bullpen, along
with Steven Levine, when he
fully recovers from an injury.
The pitchers will be flanked
by plenty of speed in the field
and on the basepaths, as wit-
nessed by a nine stolen-base
effort on Tuesday, and center
fielder Brandon Turetsky's 20
steals in 20 attempts last year.
Yet the batting order is an array
of different approaches.
Levine, a News-Sun All-
Highlands County utilityman
last year, has the most powerful
stick, and is in the lineup to DH
until healthy enough to catch.
Left fielder Brent Bierman,
Brandon's brother, has shown a
powerful stroke and an uncanny
knack for getting on base.
"I. don't know what it is,"
Coomes said. "He just has an
ability to get on base, whether
it's (getting) hit by a pitch, or
people making errors when he
hits it. It's just weird."

the bases, Josh McKee made it 2-0 with a sacri-
fice fly.
Lake Placid then put two more runs on the
board in the second frame to go up 4-0. Delgado
ripped a one-out double to start things off and
was followed by another Turetsky RBI single.
Turetsky then took second on a stolen base and
Milisci chased him home when a grounder was
overthrown to first.
The Dragons biggest chunk of runs came in the
fourth, cycling through two Viking relievers for
five hits and six runs. Eddie Piefer provided the
first blow with a long triple and scored on a wild
pickoff throw from home. McKcc then singled
and was followed by a Ryan Smallwood walk
and a two-run double from Delgado made it 11-0
and chased reliever Mark Livesay in favor of
Josh Nicholson.
He didn't fare much better and Levine quickly
doubled to score Delgado. Brandon Bierman and
Piefer drove home two more runs before a fly-out
ended the inning


Milisci, one of the two
returning starters, provides a
clutch bat capable of driving
Bierman and others home.
"Milisci hits well with peo-
ple on base," Coomes said,
pointing to his 5-for-5 effort in
the team's final
l preseason
game. "He's
come on and
done a good
job."
SThe bottom
of the order is
COOMES stocked with
speed.
"That lets us run a little bit at
the bottom of the lineup,"
Coomes said. "They're capable
of bunting and playing a little
different ballgame."
Right fielder Alex Delgado
fits that bill, along with second
baseman Josh McKee, who
moved over from shortstop to
allow Milisci to play there


when he's not pitching.
Brandon Bierman will man
third when not on the mound,
while Bair and Scott Blanchette
will split first base. Josh Myers
holds down the catching posi-
tion until Levine fully recovers.
Reserves include basketball
point guard Eddie Peifer in the
outfield and Ryan Smallwood
and Omar DeJesus in the
infield. Yet with just 13 perma-
nent varsity players and one of
the smallest enrollments in the
district to draw upon, the
Dragons must get the most out
of every body they have.
"One player can make a huge
difference," Coomes said. "A
player that gets hurt or some-
thing like that can make a huge
difference in our size school."
"With guys just getting out
here from basketball, and trying
to get healthy, that holds us up a
little bit. But that's where we're
at."

"If we can do that, we're

He didn't get away.
Germaine knew he could
hold Porter for the final 30 sec-
onds.
"When it was -single over-
time, I knew that as long as I
didn't give up a takedown, I'd
be all right because I'd rode
him out for a minute and a half
already (in the second period),
so I figured 30 more seconds, I
could do it," he said.
"I think that's the first time
I've ever been in overtime. It
was exciting and it was fun, but
if I didn't win, it wouldn't have
been too fun."
.Facing Porter who ended
up third last season wasn't
much help this time around,


were Reib (triple) and Rollie

what our lineup is, but we'll get
it worked out here pretty quick,
and we'll start going forward
hopefully then," he said.
The tournament champi-
onship went to Lake Region,
which edged second-place
Sebastian River 1-0 earlier on
Saturday. Williams, Campbell,
and Kiko and Tony Vazquez
were all-tournament honorees
for the Streaks, while Billy
Dobson and Most Outstanding
Pitcher Johnny Sedlock made it
from the Devils.


Germaine said.
"He was a lot tougher. I think
it made it a lot worse, wrestling
him last year, because he knew
what I was going to do. Just like
last year, he kept locking me up
on the head and I couldn't get
out of the tie-up."
Cunningham said Porter's
strategy to tie Germaine up and
prevent Germaine from getting
his takedown shot in almost
worked.
"It was a little bit more excit-
ing than we wanted," he said.
The fact the match was close
came as no surprise since both
wrestlers took almost the same
path to the semifinals.
Germaine won his opener by
six points and Porter by eight,
then Germaine dominated
Marvin Johnson of Zephyrhills
in the quarterfinals with a 20-4
technical fall while Porter got a
15-0 technical fall against
Crystal River's Joe Bertine.

Framing makes

the difference
The print by G. Harvey,
"Charity The Gift of Love"
displayed in my living room,
depicts a rainy street scene
set in the era of horse drawn
buggies and early motor cars.
It features a child presenting
a flower bouquet to a woman
sitting alone.
The print had been stored
away for several years and,
at last, we brought it to a
framer. We selected a frame
and matting that pulled the
colors and textures from the
picture.
When we hung it on the
wall, we were astounded.
The framing had made the
picture come alive. The street
looked wetter and the percep-
tion of depth made us feel we
could step into the scene.
The artwork was already
beautiful. The framing had
intensified and enriched it.
Recently, my husband
learned this about photogra-
phy. It's not necessarily the
camera that makes the differ-
ence, but how you frame the
picture. Not a picture frame,
but the mental frame you put
around your subject before
snapping the picture.
Looking through the
viewfinder, the photographer
must eliminate thar which
will detract and adjust that
which will enhance the pic-
ture. Remove debris and clut-
ter. Move the subject right or
left for emphasis and atten-
tion. What is your perspec-
tive? Do you want to capture
an expression, an action or
background scenery? It may
take several photo shots from
varying distances or with dif-
ferent lenses to discover
what's best for the perspec-
tive you had in mind.
Some years ago, I stood
looking over a peaceful lake
where a striking Japanese
maple dipped gracefully over
the lake and dripped in fall
colors. I didn't want to move
from the spot and lose that
perspective, so I asked my
husband to bring the camera
to me.
"What do you want to
take?" he asked. "Tell me.
I'll take it for you."
"No." I said. "I need to
take this picture from right
here, at my height, the way
I'm seeing it."
I didn't know why I felt
that way. But, he brought me
the camera and, though I did-
n't know about, framing,
that's what I did as I looked
through the viewfinder.
When the photo was devel-
oped, it was exactly as I had
remembered it.
I often thought that if I
could paint, I'd paint that
picture. But, looking through
his own "viewfinder," God
had seen what I'd need'for a
project that was still years
away. Today, it is the cover
of my new "Pause &
Consider" book.
Let's "frame" life with
God's perspective emphasiz-
ing his will and purposes;
removing the debris that clut-
ters the landscape; capturing
the essence of his viewpoint;
and, being willing to change
lenses or try new.ways to get
his work done.
"Open my eyes that I may
see wonderful things in your
law. Turn my eyes away
from worthless things. The
commands of the Lord are
radiant, giving light to the
eyes." (Psalm 119: 18 and
37; Psalm 19:8b, NIV)
With this perspective,
"framing life" will become
most natural to us. Selah.

The Forever Young
Dancers and crew per-

erally 'dancing their

for seven years.

By PAT RICCOBONO
News-Sun correspondent
Although it may seem late to buy a 2005 calendar,
who cares, if it's a keeper.
The "almost nude" calendar, produced by a group
of senior citizens of the male persuasion, features 12
of them in provocative, but fun poses appropriate to
the seasons. Mr. December, Richard Jansen, 69, a
retired art teacher, is almost wearing a Santa Claus
costume, with poinsettias artfully arranged below
where his belt buckle should be.
Mr. February, Fred Clausen, the oldest of the bunch
at age 75, makes a fetching Valentine with a large red
heart covering his midsection. Clausen is the origina-
tor of the group, having taken the idea
from a male strip bar in St. Pete
Beach. The place was a huge hit with
women of all ages. Clausen asked
himself, "Why can't old guys do
this?" He recruited from his retired
friends and men at his gym. He hired
a choreographer and a costumer and
MacDONALD began booking gigs in the St.
Petersburg area.
As the idea of the "Naughty Florida Boys" caught
on, men from other areas joined in the fun, like Bob
MacDonald, part-time resident of Sebring and a
retired Pentagon electronics engineer.
"My five kids know I do this and they think it's
great that we can raise money for the homeless."
MacDonald is not one of the eight dancers that "dance
their pants off for charity," he writes publicity and
maintains the Web site.
He did pose as Mr. July in the calendar, "But, I'm
dressed in a bikini, by the pool," he said, reassur-
ingly.
.He serves as the informal public relations person
and contact for public appearances. He and others of
the group have been on the Jenny Jones show, the
Tampa Bay 13 show, the Fox News show, Channels 9
and 10 and in USA Today as well as all the Tampa
Bay newspapers.
As the idea of the calendar took form, Clausen
recruited his friend, Marty Condon, a graphic designer
in the St. Petersburg area, who donated his time and
talent to the project.


Courtesy photo
Some of the Naughty Florida Boys appear with feature reporter Kathy Fountain on Channel 13 in Tampa. Those sit-,'
ting with Fountain are (from left), Bob MacDonald (Mr. July), Richard Casey (Mr. November) and Fred Clausen
(Mr. February).


"Most of the photos were shot in my home or at the
pool" Condon said, "except for Mr. November,
(Casey) who got naked at the beach and posed with
the 1958 Austin Healey."
Dick Casey, now 70, got involved with the Forever
Young Dancers for the fun of it and a chance to help
others.
Although quantities are limited, the calendar is still
available by sending a check or money order for $10
to: Forever Young Dancers Calendar, 5000 Gulf Blvd.,
Suite 103,'St. Pete Beach, FL 33706.
Known as the Forever Young Dancers, their show is
popular at retirement centers, women's clubs, The


Farmers Market and this year they will perform at the
Senior Fest, to be Thursday, April 7 at the Coliseum in
St. Petersburg. Don't miss this opportunity for some
rare fun.
All funds earned by the dancers goes directly to
charities that support the homeless shelters, battered
women' shelters and food banks, providing blankets,
shoes and socks to those less fortunate. Since they
formed seven years ago, they have raised almost
$10,000 and so far the calendar sales have almost
doubled that amount.

dancers.com.


Keep things organized for special events


* News-Sun correspondent Pauline Au Yang provides
etiquette tips for readers on the last Sunday of each
month in the Lifestyle section.


By PAULINE AUYANG
News-Sun correspondent
No matter who you are or what organization you
belong to, when it comes to hosting special events, if
the right people who are knowledgeable in events plan-
ning are not involved, there can be some embarrass-
merit. Here are a few guidelines to help you plan that
perfect event.
First you need to form a special event committee
(not a whole bunch of people)
Designate an events coordinator. (This individual
arrives early and stays late, making sure glasses are
spotless, centerpieces and other decorations are as
ordered, and that items not belonging to the caterers are
removed.
Outline specific goals for the event and create an
event planning file.
*. Determine date, time, reserve space, schedule
event with caterer and compile guest list.
To avoid overbooking, the event coordinator
should make a final count at least one week before the
scheduled event. Incomplete list of guest can cause
problems. Finalize appropriate seating, most tables
seats 10 or 12 persons. Finalize food and beverage
quantity. A poorly organized event is a reflection of the
organizers involved.


Serving'









Pauline Au Yang
L-

Seating
When hosting an awards event, honorees and a guest
must be seated close to the podium, never in the back
of a room. This avoids a lengthy break in the program,
and avoids going beyond the allotted time, especially if
the venue has a specific time limit.
Invitees, if your invitation says RSVP ("Respondez
il' plait") This is French and means "please respond"
whether or not you will be attending on the specified
date. It is rude to ignore an invitation.

Weddings
If you and a guest are invited to a wedding, it does-
n't mean you respond for two, yet bring your granny
and all the siblings. When the wedding is a catered


affair, bride and groom pays for each plate served. I
was told about this individual who was an uninvited
guest at a wedding, but gave a check for a substantial
amount of money. However, when the check was
deposited, it bounced like a basketball, causing the cou-
ple to pay $35 to the bank.

Attire
Men, if the event says black tie, it doesn't mean jeans
and sneakers. It doesn't mean timberland and boxers-
exposed attire. It means a tuxedo. Formal attire means
a suit, preferable a dark colored suit. At no time should
a hat or cap be worn at the event. Hair should be nice-
ly groomed. Ladies, corsages should be placed on the
left of your dress. Pocketbooks and evening bags
should not be placed on the table, instead it should be
placed beneath your chair. Fingernails of both men and
women should be nicely manicured. Fingernails with
dirt embedded beneath is disgusting.

ARTS & LEISURE


Libraries know what's bugging you


I'm in the middle of a series
of Sunday School lessons for
my second-graders that involve
using insects.
Never far from a fly swatter
myself, I still can appreciate the
mind-boggling variety of
insects on our planet. Like me,
most children are fascinated
and repelled by insects, so it's
an attention-getter each week as
we look at pictures and discov-
er facts about various bugs.
One fact that is amazing:
Scientists say that all of the
world's insects weigh more
than all of the world's animals!
Speaking of insects, what do
you know about beetles? Can
you name at least two? I can
think of the June bug, a large
beetle that is attracted to light
and tends to fly into windows at
night. And how about the dar-
ling ladybug? Most of us don't
lump this dainty creature in
with all the big beetles, even
though it is a member of the
family.
Read all about it in
"Ladybugs" or check out
"Spotted Beetles: Ladybugs in
Your Backyard."
Some fun videos to view
are," "Amazing Beasts,"
"Animal Acrobats" and the
ever-popular "Really Gross
Bug Stuff." Enjoy the incredi-
ble diversity of the beetle fami-
ly in "The Beetle Alphabet
Book," "Beastly Bugs,"
"American Beetles," "The Very
Clumsy Click Beetle," "Insects
in Armor: A Beetle Book,"
"Nature's Clean-up Crew,"
"The Burying Beetles,"
"Identifying Bugs and Beetles,"
"The Magic School Bus
Explores the World of Bugs," or
"Life in a Tree," which exam-


ines some of the tiny
creatures that make
their homes in trees. tA -
I found some great
closeup pictures of
bugs, including the
praying mantis.. You
can understand why
they are called the
gardener's friend by
reading "Who is in LIBRARV
the Garden?," -
"Praying Mantises," Car
"Monster Bugs" and Hess
"Mantises," or by -
watching the video
"The Deadly Mantis."
We even have a CD kids will
love: "Songs About Insects,
Bugs and Squiggly Things."
Faster than a speeding mos-
quito, able to hover like a heli-
copter, the dragonfly invented
the concept of fast food. It can
munch while flying, and while
it may buzz past your head, it
doesn't attack humans. Learn
more in "Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!,"
"Florida Insects: Their Habits
and Control," "Dragonfly" or
"Sir Small and the Dragonfly." .
You can't study bugs without
including ants. Even Solomon
included a bug gem in the book
of Proverbs in the Bible ("Go to
the ant," thou sluggard!").
Your libraries have a lot of
information on their "antics,"
so come in and reserve or check
out these great titles, "The
Magic School Bus Gets Ants in
its Pants," "Outwitting Ants:
101 Truly Ingenious Methods
and Proven Techniques ... "
"Fire Ants," "Insects Do the
Strangest Things," Deadly
Ants," "The Beginning
Knowledge Book of Ants,"
"Animals That Eat Nectar and


Honey," "Ant
Cities," "Animal
M Marvels," "Ants at
Work," "How an
Insect Society is
Organized" or my
favorite "Oh Yuck!:
Encyclopedia of
Everything Nasty."
I'm not the only
I LINES one to enjoy my
flowers and plants,
olyn some unknown crit-
elink ters spend their time
-- chewing huge holes
in the leaves, and
then disappearing when I'm
looking for the culprits.
Bees, however, announce

Rocco. Running time: 2 hours.

confinement for three years,
and upon his release he murders
another prisoner. Christian
Slater plays an jqtrney who
takes on the U.S. penal system
in defense of his client.


Duck not impressed with


egg-counting attempt


There is nothing quite as
daunting as a female duck
hatching out a clutch of eggs.
I'm sure of that after an incident
that occurred five years ago, I
am cured of having any desire
to approach a so-called "sitting
duck" ever again.
I bought a funny-looking lit-
tle duck back in 1999. She was
my first hen, and I was proud of
her. The owner explained that
she was a Muscovey duck. I
was so enamored of this new
duck and in such a hurry to get
her home, that when I intro-
duced her to the family I had to
admit that I didn't know what
kind of duck she was.
"But her name is Miss
Scovey."
Miss Scovey wasn't anything
like the drakes we had. We had
two Pekins great big white
ducks. Where they weren't
white, they were orange. They
looked just like any duck I'd
ever seen in childhood story
books.
Miss Scovey, however, had
black and white feathers and a
series of tiny knots that extend-
ed up almost between her eyes.
Compared to the drakes, she
was odd looking but seemed
friendly enough.
A good three months later I
discovered Miss Scovey had
gone missing and went to
search for her. I found her in an
old milk crate that sat on top of
an upturned water barrel back
by the shed.
Now, my experience with
and knowledge of the habits of
ducks was limited. So when she
craned her neck, pasted both
beady eyes on me, opened her
big red, knot-infested beak and
hissed at me like an angry pan-
ther, I don't mind telling you
that my blood ran a little cold.
I knew what she was doing.
She was protecting a nest. What
I didn't know was how many
eggs she was sitting on. Today I
can't explain why I had to know
howimany eggs were under that
duck, but I did.
So began the battle.


I was determined to
satisfy my curiosity.
The least confronta-
tional way was to sit
her out. Eventually she
had to come off that
nest for food and


FARM


water. When she did, I planned'
to be ready.
So I sat and I watched, and I
walked and I watched, and I
watched her watching me
watching her but to no avail.
She just would not leave that
nest. I thought maybe I could
coax her off, by tossing some
feed on the ground in front of
her.
It didn't work.
By the second or third day I
reached the end of my rope, so I
'thought I could just slip up
behind her and slide my hand
under her and count those eggs
with my fingers. The trick was
to do it in such a way as to pre-
vent another one of those hiss-
ing sessions that shook me up. I
didn't know what came after
the neck craning, beady eye
pasting and hissing...and I did-
n't want to know.
So it was with the utmost
care and stealth that I crept up
behind Miss Scovey as she sat
on her nest staring straight
ahead and not any wiser at all to
the fact that I was slowly but
surely closing in on her.
Mere inches from my goal I
stepped on a twig and her head
snapped up her neck stiff as a
ruler and as I watched in horror,
her head slowly began to turn
until it was literally backwards
on top of her neck. I waited for
the hissing... steeling myself
against it, but surprisingly
enough it didn't come.
It was then that I learned that
Miss Scovey had an even more
powerful tool at her disposal
There was a soft sound, like
that of a gentle breeze ruffling
through the leaves on a tree,
and then I was hit with a stream


of the most vile,
TALES ungodly concoction
known to mankind.
- Miss Scovey had used
4louser her ultimate defense
and it couldn't have
been more effective it
if had been acid.
She jettisoned duck waste
matter onto my person with all
the precision of an ace pilot in a
B-57 bomber. Now it was my
turn to do some neck craning
and hissing. That came first.
Then with no regard to the fact
that I was' outside and it was
broad daylight, I streaked
across the yard, abandoning my
t-shirt in my wake-and headed
for the nearest shower.
I think it was about a week
before I felt clean again, and a
little more than that before Miss
Scovey stood one day, stretched
her wings, and waddled down
off her nest, never to return to
it.
When I found the courage to
approach the nest I found a
dozen questionable looking
eggs of various unhealthy
shades of gray and knew imme-
diately that they were all duds,
and very likely potential stink
bombs to be disposed of
dressed in nothing less than full
haz-mat gear complete with a
gas mask.
Apparently Miss Scovey had
realized that she was wasting
her time, as the required wait-
ing period had come and gone
and nothing had happened.
All the excitement over those
eggs and the determination to
learn how- many little ducklings
I could expect had all been for
nothing. Miss Scovey had had
her revenge by sending me on
"wild duck chase" and drove
home to me the old saying that
"one should never count their
eggs before they're hatched".
And where it concerned Miss
Scovey, double that. With feel-
ing.

Yard care affects neighborhood and the waterways beyond it


T h e

~ Office has
GROWING published a
SEASON handbook on
how Florida
Highlands neighbor-
Highlands hood yards
County Master hood yards
Gardeners connect with
-e waterways. I
will share
some of the information from
the handbook with you.
Our yards and neighborhoods
are pathways to our waterways.
The decisions we make, from


developing a home site to
improving and maintaining our
property, will determine the
future of our treasured water
resources. Nature knows no
property lines.
A rainstorm can wash bare
soil, landscape debris, gas, oil,
fertilizers or pesticides from
one yard to another. A butterfly
attracted to one person's wild-
flowers can flit across a proper-
ty line and be poisoned in
another landscape. Landscapes
don't just connect people to the
outdoors they also connect
one person's property to the
next, forming neighborhoods.
Ultimately, yards and neighbor-
hood are connected to water
resources.
That final connection may be
immediate in a waterfront com-


Master Gardeners seminar to discuss
gardening in Highlands County
SEBRING The public is invited to the Highlands
County Master Gardeners' annual spring seminar from
8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, March 4, at the county's
extension office, 4509 George Blvd.

on "Florida Yards and Neighborhoods."
Other subjects will cover vegetable gardening, caladi-
ums, orchids, and irrigation.


munity, or gradual, through the
flow of storm drains, ditches,
streams, rivers or groundwater.
It may surprise you to know
that your yard is the first line of
defense for Florida's fragile
environment. The health of
Florida's estuaries, rivers, lake
and aquifers depends in part on
how you landscape and main-


tain your yard. You don't even
have to live on the water to
make a big difference.
Rain falls on yards, roads and
parking lots, and can wash into-
waterways, carrying pollutants
including fertilizers, pesticides,
soil and petroleum products.
Improperly applied fertilizers
and pesticides from residential


areas are serious threat to the
health of Florida's waters.
Storm water run-off is a
cause for concern. When runoff
contains nitrogen and phospho-
rus from fertilizers, algae
blooms can become so abun-
dant that natural vegetation is
smothered, oxygen is depleted
and fish may die as a result.
The same nutrients responsi-
ble for lush growth and colorful
blooms can cause invasive
weeds to flourish changing
Florida's natural plant commu-
nities perhaps most alarming
toxic substances such as com-
mon household pesticides and
fertilizers are entering our water
supply.
Not only do these poisons
damage aquatic life, they are
harmful to humans as well.
Interest is growing in landscap-


ing with native and suitable
non-native trees, shrubs and
ground covers. Homeowners
are choosing plants that blend
beauty with environmental ben-
efits.
People are selecting safer
alternatives to chemicals used
indoors and out. Best of all,
many of these benefits to the
environment also save time and
money while enhancing our
unique Florida lifestyle.
Next week we will continue
with the serious problems of
pollution, water shortages and
disappearing habitats.

News-Sun
SEBRING For the third
year in a row, the News-Sun and
Highlands Little Theatre are co-
sponsoring an essay contest for
seventh graders.
This year's contest theme
comes from the production
"Barnum: The Musical," which
will open Friday, March 25,
under the direction of Kathy
MacNeill.
Since the show sets to music
the highlights of the circus


showman's life, the essay con-
test asks students to apply a
concept from one song to their
own lives.
The song, "Brick by Brick,"
explains P.T. Barnum's philoso-
phy of business that great
accomplishments come one
step at a time. The contest asks
seventh-graders to answer the
question: "What would you like
to accomplish one brick at a
time?"
Once they have clearly stated


their goal, then they should
explain how they would accom-
plish it.
Essays are limited to 100
words.
The contest is open to public,
private and home-schooled stu-
dents. Essays must arrive at the
News-Sun's business office,
2227 U.S. 27 South, by 5 p.m.
Thursday, March 17. Winners
will be announced Friday,
March 18.
The winner will receive a


Some facts about P.T. Barnum


Through music, "Barnum:
The Musical" tells the story of
P.T. Barnum, the famous circus
owner.
Phinneus Taylor (P.T.)
Barnum was born July 5, 1810,
in Bethel, Conn., the oldest of
five children. When he was 15,
his father died, and he began a
long line of odd jobs selling
everything from fruit and
chocolate to lottery tickets and
writing for a weekly newspaper
that he started.
None of those careers lasted
long. Barnum, a showman at
heart, began his own traveling
show. His first attraction was
Joice Heth, a blind African
American slave who Barnum
put on display. He promoted her
as being the 161-year-old for-
mer nurse of George
Washington, but after her death
an autopsy estimated that she
was no more than 80.
This incident marked what
would become Barnum's most
notorious quality: He was a
skillful marketer of oddities
and, frequently, scams.
Barnum got a taste of circus
life when he joined the Aaron
Turner Traveling Circus. Not
long after traveling up and

would become known as 'The
Greatest Show on Earth.'
down the Mississippi River in
an old paddle-wheeler. But the
country slumped into an eco-
nomic depression, 'and
Barnum's circus went bankrupt.
Settling in New York in
1841, he purchased Scudder's
American Museum renamed it
Barnum's American Museum,
and operated it until 1868. It
became a big moneymaker for
showcasing strange attractions
'- such as the Cardiff Giant, a
dwarf he billed as General Tom
Thumb, the Feejee Mermaid
(later confirmed to be a hoax),


and Chen and Eng, conjoined
twins from Siam. (now
Thailand). Over the years, he
continued to tour Europe and
America with his menagerie,
adding Jumbo the elephant. In
one of his most famous and
profitable promotions, he per-
suaded Swedish opera singer
Jenny Lind to sing for him for
150 nights at the rate of $1,000
per night.
In 1855, Barnum retired from
show business. Barnum's
American Museum closed in
1868, after in burned down for
a third time. In 1871 Barnum
returned to circus-style enter-
tainment by going on the road
with what he called "The
Greatest Show on Earth." This.
production blended circus
entertainment, such as clowns
and, wild animals, with his own
"museum of freaks*" an assort-
ment of dwarfs, giants, bearded
womi1n and so forth.
In 1881, Barnum's circus
merged with the Hutchison and
Bailey Circus and became
Barnum and Bailey. Barnum
died on April 7, 1891, at the age
of 80. Bailey survived him by
16 years, and upon his death the
circus was sold to the Ringling
Brothers.


$25 gift certificate. The top 20
essays will be published in the
News-Sun.
Ten students will be invited
to the premiere of "Barnum:
The Musical!" on Wednesday,
March 23. Those will be decid-
ed in a drawing.

'One Brick
at a Time'
(Partial lyrics from
"Barnum: The Musical")
The Lord gave each and
every one
The spunk to do what can't
be done:
The brawn, the brain, the
courage and the heart,
The strength to bend the
strongest bar,
The will to reach the
farthest star.
t's just the case of learning
how to start
To build a tower up so high
to a cloud.
You'll aim to build it one tiny
brick at a time.
Bucks multiply till the bum's
a banker.
Just begin with a thin silver
dime.
That empty field, it can yield
Miles and miles of flowers
You don't need no magic
powers
Just to seed and showers
From the floor to the skies
you can soar
If you're wise enough to
climb

K \ Psalm 1:1-13, "Blessed is the
man that wialketh not in the

Ior sitteth in tie seal of the

And he shall be like a tree

to success in life is found In the Word of God. So
many people look everywhere for success only to find
disappointment. There's really only one way to be
truly successful in life, qn at's God's way. loshua
1:8 says, "This book iv shall not depart out
of thy mouth; but thou meditate therein day and
night, that thou inaves e to do according to all
that is written therein; | n thou shalt make thy

temporal, but God's t't mianaent. Let tils day be

way. Be encouraged'

Jennifer Lopez confirms that

she married Marc Anthony


Associated Press
NEW YORK Jennifer
Lopez has confirmed that she
and Marc Anthony are husband
and wife.
"Yes, we're married," Lopez
tells People magazine, on news-
stands Friday. "I mean, come on,
everyone knows. It's not a
secret."
It was the first public acknowl-
edgment of her union with the
salsa singer.
The couple performed a duet
at the Feb. 13 Grammy Awards
show. Lopez says she was ailing
from swollen glands and a sore
throat during the performance,
which caused her to cancel a
London trip to promote the
British release of her film "Shall


We Dance?"
Though the trip cancellation
prompted some speculation of
pregnancy, Lopez says she's "not
on a timetable" to have a baby.
Now, the 34-year-old says,
she's entered "phase two": a less
public, a "little bit suburban" life
with Anthony and a far cry
from her "Bennifer" days with
former fiance Ben Affleck. Lopez
counts the high-profile romance
as a learning experience.
"I take responsibility for the
fact that I didn't make adjust-
ments," she says. "Now I'm a lit-
tie more careful. I travel in a cer-
tain way. I leave at a certain time.
I learned."
Lopez's new album, "Rebirth,"
will be released Tuesday.
