Library to close
in June, lending
library to open in
meantime
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK There's bad
news and good news for the
Avon Park Library.
The bad news is it will be
closing probably by June.
The good news is that when it
reopens it will be nearly twice
as big and with a lot of new fea-
tures.
"I just sent off the plans and
the specifications to the state
library board for their
approval," Highlands County
Library Director Mary Myers
said.
Once that hurdle has been
cleared, the project will be
ready to go out for bid. Myers
said the timeframe would carry


M Second in a two-part
series.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY.
News-Sun
AVON PARK Gang
members and many teens
look at gang life as glamorous
and trendy. This is one reason
gangs can be difficult to erad-
icate.
The situation, however, is
far from hopeless and there
,are things that can be done.
For one thing, law enforce-
ment authorities around the
country are taking gang activ-
ity more seriously. Some
police departments, like the
Palm Beach Sheriff's Office,
have created specialty forces


the pro.eci at leastinto the earl
spring before any ground
begins to move.
But those who patronize the
Avon Park Library still won't
be totally without service, even
though the main building will
be shut.
"We're partnering with South
Florida Community College to
move a small lending library
into the space that used to be
Metcalf Hardware there in the
Hotel Jacaranda building," she
said.
Myers said the temporary
location would have popular
materials, some of the library's
current collection, children's
books and some computers to
help bridge the gap.
"Plus, they'll be able to order
from any of the cooperative
libraries in the system and those
would be delivered to the store-
front," she said.
Myers lamented the plan is
one she wished she had put in
place when the Lake Placid


to focus on the problem.
Many are reaching out and
sharing information.
Police departments also are
becoming more sophisticated
in their approach to gangs,
and are learning how to
extract information.
For example, gang mem-
bers love to talk. They take
pride in being part of the
group, and want to brag
about it. Palm Beach County
discovered that officers wear-
ing plain clothes got much
better results than officers in
uniform, and that engaging in
dialogue got more results than
shouting.
See GANGS, page 7A


Libui' wa enlarged last year.
"We were closed to the pub-
lic for about five months. That's
a long time to go without
library service," she said.
The current plans call for a
4,900-square-foot addition to
the 6,200-square-foot building.
Myers said when the library
was first constructed, the build-
ing was designed to accommo-
date the addition.
Almost from the onset the
library has been ripe for
enlargement.
"We could have constructed
a larger library' but we built
what we had the funds for," she
said.
Nevertheless, at the time it
was a huge step from its former
location, the site of the
Highlands County Tax
Collector's Avon Park branch
* office.
"We were down there in the
old senior resources center,"
Myers said. That was real tiny
and real cluttered."


Plans for the additional space
call for an expanded children's
department, a meeting room
and a section dedicated to what
Myers called "a quiet reading
area."
"The reading area is going to
be really neat, there'll be a cof-
fee machine, a garden on each
side and big, overstuffed chairs.
It'll be a pleasant place just to
sit, read and relax," she said.
The new library also will
have a place where films can be
shown, which will be a natural
for librarian Don Brusha.
"We're going to have it set up
for real theater. You know Don
has those film festivals and this
will be just perfect," she said.
*In addition to theater seating
and a big screen, plans call for
the ability to have surround
sound.
Even with all the added
space, Myers said Highlands
County still does not meet state
standards for library facilities.
"Our current square footage


is .3 square feet per person and
the state standard is .6 so
we're about half, what the state
says we should be for a popula-
tion our size."
Myers estimated for the
county to reach that minimum
goal, it would cost in the neigh-
borhood of $3.5 million.
The county has a $725,000
budget for the Avon Park proj-
ect, which will be done with a
matching grant from the Florida
Department of State.
However, once the architect
fees, renovation of the current
building and new equipment
costs are added, Myers said she
might need some help.
-In the next few years there
will be additional funds avail-
able for counties that are part of
the Rural Economic
Development Initiative of
which Highlands is one.
Those dollars, Myers hopes,
will help bring the county clos-
er to state standards.

Many ways to



fight gangs

HIGHLANDS

in brief


Pedestrian

killed

Saturday
A 39-year-old Avon Park
man was killed Saturday
evening when he attempted
to cross State Road 64 and
was struck by an oncoming
vehicle.
Aurelio D. Ramos was
reportedly crossing the
road from south to north
when the right front por-
tion of a vehicle driven by
16-year-old Johnathan
Rousseau, of Avon Park,
collided with him.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report,
Ramos collided with the
vehicle's windshield, then
traveled off the roadway
and landed on the north
shoulder of S.R. 64.
Ramos died at the scene
from injuries sustained dur-
ing the accident. Charges
in the case are pending fur-
ther investigation.

Half-cent

sales tax vote

set for May 10
SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners
have set Tuesday, May 10,
for a special election on a
half-cent sales tax to sup-
port local education.
The tax is expected to
help the School Board of
Highlands County pay for
$50 million in capital
improvements, mostly to
build the new classrooms
N- required by the 2002
Olass size amendment.
S' S.fa.the, state has only
allocated $2.4 million.
Governor Jeb Bush has an
initiative to ease the
requirements of the class
size amendment, but it has
not been implemented yet.
The school board was
already committed to a
building program to pro-
vide adequate facilities for
their students and faculty.
The class size amendment '
has increased that need.

closing
SEBRING Highlands
County Parks and
Recreation Department has
announced the Windy Point
parking lot and boat ramp
on Highlands Lake Drive
will be closed for repairs_
effective immediately.
For information on boat
ramp closings, contact the

Authorities preparing




for wildfire season


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Wildfire sea-
son is just around the comer
and local forestry officials are
warning that this year could be
particularly bad.
Although the weekend rains
dropped the drought index
some 200 points, there still is
plenty of cause for concern.
"We're at about 304 right
now," Florida Division of
Forestry Forest Area Supervisor
Tim Elder said.
That is the number from the
Keetch-Byram Drought Index.
It's a mathematical system for
relating current and recent
weather conditions to potential
or expected fire behavior.
The most widely used
drought index system, it also is
one of the only methods specif-
ically developed to equate the
effects 6f drought with potential
fire activities.
Drought index numbers
ranging from 0-800 describe the
amount of moisture that is miss-
ing. A rating of zero defines the
point where there is no moisture
deficiency and 800 is the maxi-
mum drought possible.
The current 301 is an average
that ranges from as high as 480
to as low as 18.
"It's measured on a four kilo-
meter grid," Elder explained.
"Before last weekend's rain we
were up around 525. Our last
real rainfall was back on Jan.
14."


But the dryness is just one
concern.
The hurricane force winds
that swept through Highlands
County last year left a lot of
trees, limbs and other vegeta-
tion on the ground. That has
dried and now has become what
is known as "ground fuel,"
which can create problems
should a fire get started.
"It won't make the fire
spread any faster but it will
burn more intensely," Elder
said.
He said the situation would
compound their efforts to sup-
press the flames because the
intensity of the fire would
inhibit the ability of forestry
agents to get in close to fight
the fire.
Although it is early in the
season, he said it was not too
soon to begin taking some
preparations in advance of the
fire season.
Because of the proliferation
of ground fuel., Elder said
instead of stepping up their
schedule of prescribed bums,
Division of Forestry workers
have been using mechanical
treatments. That means
employing rollerchoppers to
grind up the ground fuel and
create natural fire breaks.
"That way if a fire starts,
we'll have an easier time put-
ting it out," he said.
The idea is that a controlled
bum might simply be too much
for some of the trees damaged


during the hurricanes.
"Given that a lot of the trees
are under some stress from the
storms, we didn't want to add to
that by burning," he said.
Crews have been out in the
Leisure Lakes area already
employing the more tree-
friendly method of land man-
agement.
Elder cautioned local resi-
dents who plan to burn debris to
use caution and remember that
they need a burn permit for that
activity.
Whether or not burn permits
are issued is on a day-by-day
basis. Elder suggested that peo-
ple, especially those who live in
wooded areas, clear a 30-foot
area around their homes or out-
buildings.
Called the "defensible area,"
experts agree the area should be
kept clear of debris. It should
also be kept mowed and irrigat-
ed as much as possible.
That includes roofs and gut-
ters. They noted that such mate-
rials on roofs would present
good opportunities for sparks to
catch houses afire even if
flames were still a ways off.
"Downed vegetation can pre-
vent firefighter access to peo-
ple's property," Florida
Division of Forestry Mitigation
.Specialist Melissa Corwell said.
Those who need additional
information may call the
Division of Forestry at 655-
6407 or visit the Internet site at

All-terrain vehicle riders



to ask about SFWMD land


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING All-terrain
vehicle owners may have a
tough time finding a place to
ride.
Neither of the two water
management districts, the
Division of State Lands, nor the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission have
land available for off-road rid-
ing.
The agencies' land managers
actually don't want ATVs on
their lands, for a couple of rea-
sons. Poachers often use ATVs
as a quick means of getting in
and out of state lands, and most
of those lands were set aside to
conserve habitat and rare
species. Many of these endan-
gered species are small, easy-
to-kill plants.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said Tuesday that he got
one positive note from the
South Florida Water
Management District. Land
managers there don't like
ATVs, but they also don't like
horses, which they allow. An
equestrian club has a sanctioned
area to use and clean up under
an agreement with SFWMD.
Riders who use the sanctioned
area would have to go through
the club and follow its rules to
get access.
ATV riding might have a
higher liability, Cool said, but
SFWMD may be willing to
talk. Missie Barletto, lead inter-
governmental and outreach spe-
cialist for SFWMD, told ATV
riders Tuesday to be ready for a
long haul. It took the equestrian
club several years to get an


agreement with land managers.
Riders' petition
Jeff Cowell of GHC
Motorsports in Lake Placid has
gathered 300 signatures from
local ATV riders who support
having a public or private area
specifically for off-road riding.
He suggests using the off-road
vehicle fund from the nearly
40,000 ATVs and off-road
motorcycles sold and titled
each year to help fund such a
park.
He said Fort Meade has such
a place an old excavated area
with 200 acres of well-estab-
lished trails and a $20 fee per
person per visit. Since 1976, the
state has run 2,300-2,600 acres
called Crooms Park in
Brooksville, he said.
Scott Pearce of Sebring, a
recreational camping rider, said
Okeechobee has a monthly
event on 800 acres off State
Road 70 called "Mud, Sweat
and Gears." A private enterprise
like that would help, but not for
people who want to ride every
day.
Education
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said some ATV riders need to


be educated that they can't ride
their vehicles legally on a
county road right of way.
Theresa Williams of Highway
Park in Lake Placid, said young
adults ride recklessly in her area
without any idea how danger-
ous an ATV can be on paved
roads.
Mark Ross, of Sun 'N Lake
of Lake Placid, said a young
man riding recently on his
father's land with a group of
friends was told by a sheriff's
deputy to shut it down because
of a noise complaint. Ross said
young people would use a sanc-
tioned area if they had one.
Some people in his area don't
like ATVs, he said.
"One said flat out, 'I don't
like young people," Ross said.
Still, Pearce said any unsu-
pervised rider running down a
road with a loud exhaust pipe
frustrates him, "because that's
another knife wound."
Cowell said an after-market
muffler system costs $300-
$400. New machines have the
proper mufflers installed, but
dealers can't help what riders
do to their machines after they
leave the store.

Water use rules may
follow the county

By PHIL ATrNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County may still get out of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District this year.
However, most of the water
regulations won't go away,
according to a draft memoran-
dum of understanding between
SWFWMD and the South
Florida Water Management
District.
Governor Jeb Bush wants to
be assured that water resources,
both above ground and below,
will be equally protected
between the two districts What
that means, County
Administrator Carl Cool said, is
that Highlands County will still


have to abide by most of the
water permitting and use rules
from the Southern Water Use
Caution Area. SFWMD would
be required to adopt rules simi-
lar to the caution area rules for
the consolidated portion of
Highlands County.
"The SWUCA rules will
have to go with us," Cool said.
"That's the long and the short
of it."
As drafted, the memorandum
would last for 25 years.
County commissioners have
agreed to a workshop on the
matter Tuesday during their
regular meeting. Both water
management districts will have)
staff on hand to answer ques-t'
tions on the memorandum.
"There will be a lot of gi e
and take on this issue," Cool
said.

Jean Claude Meus put in jail Tuesday


*p PNL ATINGER
Newm-Su
SEBRING Despite a last-
minute effort by his new attor-
ney to have his sentence
reduced, Jean Claude Meus has
been put in jail Tuesday for
vehicular homicide.
Meus was remanded to cus-
tody and is in the Hardee
County Jail awaiting transporta-
tion to prison. His fiancee,
Rebecca Chenoweth, said no
date has been set on hearing
modification motion. There is a
status hearing March 15.
Trial Judge Charles B. Curry
was absent Tuesday, so Judge
William Bruce Smith heard the
request for modifying the sen-
tence. However, Smith refused
to alter Curry's sentencing deci-
sion, saying Curry, as the trial
judge, should decide on altering
sentence.
Meus was tried in August
2003, and convicted of two
counts of vehicular homicide in
the deaths of Nona Moore, 40,
and her daughter, Lindsey, 8.
He was sentenced on Sept. 13,
2003, to serve two concurrent
15-year sentences.
On the night of May 11,
2001, driving east on State
Road 64, he swerved his semi-
trailer to miss hitting Moore's
van head-on after allegedly
dodging another car at the S.R.
64 and State Road 636 junction.
His loaded trailer tipped over
and crushed Moore's van.


Moore's two other daughters
survived the wreck.
Since the trial, Moore's sis-
ters, Beth Jahna of Avon Park
and Dana Christenson of
Tampa, have come out in sup-
port of Meus, saying he doesn't
deserve a prison sentence for
what they see as an accident.
They were on hand Tuesday
with a petition of 200 names,
other family members and let-
ters signed by the surviving
girls, now 16 and 10.
Chenoweth hopes that Meus
won't be sent off to prison until
they have a chance for the mod-
ification hearing.
"I don't understand why he's
in jail," she said. "He's not a
criminal."
It's the third time she's seen
him incarcerated and believes
they may simply be following
procedures.
"We're not giving up," she
said.
Chenoweth said Meus
arrived at Six L Farms before
dawn May 11, 2001, with plen-
ty of time to get sleep before
heading off with a load of toma-
toes. Despite reports of Meus
being fatigued, she said Trooper
Owen Keane, traffic homicide
investigator with the Florida
Highway Patrol, never cited
that as a cause in the wreck and
made no notation of defective
equipment, a position the State
Attorney's Office disputes.
A post-wreck inspection


found a crack on the fifth wheel
(trailer hitch), but the trailer
didn't come loose from it dur-
ing the wreck, Chenoweth said.
She said Meus' rig had passed a
vehicle inspection in
Bordertown, N.J., two. days
prior to the wreck.
She said the appellate court


also gave no opinion in the
case, despite reports to the con-
trary.
As for reports of defense
attorney Rusty Franklin making
no mention of possible preju-
dice, Chenoweth said Franklin
asked for the entire jury to be
dismissed based on pre-trial

Amateur Radio


Hamfest 2005

set for Saturday
Special to the News-Sun
Amateur Radio Operators -
Hams and others interested
in Ham .Radio will want to
attend the annual Highlands
County Amateur Radio Club
Hamfest on Saturday at the
SHighlands County Agri-Civic
Center, 4505 George Blvd. in
Sebring.
Ham Radio gear, accessories
and electronics will be avail-
able for sale from vendors
coming from across Florida.
Door prizes will be drawn from
attendees each hour and exami-
nations will be available for
anyone interested in becoming
a "ham" or upgrading a current
Amateur Radio license.
Parking at the Agri-Civic
Center is free to visitors to the
Hamfest, and food and bever-
age service will be provided.
Hours of the Hamfest are 7
a.m. to 1 p.m. Admission is $5.
"Hamfests" are a unique
combination of flea market,
social event and educational
experience dating to the earliest
days of Ham Radio in the
1920's, when virtually all radio
equipment was built by the
Ham himself.
Amateurs from across a wide
area converged on a local Festt"
in search of buyers for parts
and equipment they brought
with them, ideas on new
designs and construction tech-
niques and parts and gear need-
ed to finish their own projects.
Today, with most equipment
coming from commercial man-
ufacturers, Hamfests still pro-
vide a major source of quality
pre-owned equipment for sale
in a setting where buyer and
seller can meet, haggle and bar-
gain on a one-to-one basis. A
valid license is needed to oper-
ate any transmitter on the
Amateur Radio frequencies.
New to this year's Hamfest
is the chance for newcomers to
the hobby to take the necessary
examinations at the Hamfest.
Sessions begin at 9 a.m.; exams
for all classes of Amateur
licenses will be available.
The annual Hamfest is the
single largest fund-raiser for
the Highlands County Amateur
Radio Club, which is made up
of Ham operators from across
the county and surrounding
area. In addition to maintain-
ing VHF "repeaters" providing.
communications for Hams in
this part of the state, the club
provides communications sup-
port for both emergencies like
the 2004 hurricanes and public-
service events throughout the
year.
For booth or table sales, con-
tact Bill Henderson at 385-
4192.

Of Deputies find 18-month-old

Sebring couple

News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County sheriff's deputies have
found an 18-month-old girl
concealed by her parents during
dependency hearings.
Deputies found the child on
Friday at the parents' home on
Selah Road, off Hammiock
Road, said Detective Melanie
Kelly, child abuse investigator
for the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office. The child's
maternal grandmother was car-
ing for her.
On Feb. 23, deputies jailed
the girl's parents David Ray
Smith, 36, and Trina Leann
Conley, 26 on charges of
concealing a child during a
dependency proceeding. Smith
had a $2 million bond and
Conley had a $1 million bond,
but County Judge Peter Estrada
has since revoked those bonds

in light of the fact that law
enforcement received no help
from family while trying to find
the child. -
The Department of Children
and Families would prefer to
place the child with family, and
has asked family members to
apply. The unmarried couple
has a house in Islamorada in the
Florida Keys.
Allegedly, the girl suffers
from an ailment that led doctors
to believe she had been abused.
DCF began an investigation
into those allegations in the first
part of January.
On Jan. 21, an investigator
executed a verified shelter peti-
tion based on the number and
severity of abuse reports. He
told Conley over the phone
about a shelter hearing sched-
uled that day in front of Circuit
Court Judge J. David Langford,
but she said she was out of
state.
Smith arrived five minutes
after the hearing ended.
Langford had already executed
an order for placement in a
shelter and an order to take the


child into custody.
The investigator asked Smith
to tell him where the child was,
but Smith allegedly said, "No, I
won't be doing that," and left
the courthouse.
The couple told Circuit Court
Judge Olin Shinholser at the
Jan. 26 shelter review hearing
that the child was with relatives
in Tennessee. Shinholser
ordered them to provide DCF
with the relatives' physical
address. Smith said his attorney,
when he retained one, would
provide DCF with that informa-
tion.
Investigators later learned
the child had been seen with her ,
mother in the Sebring area on
Feb. 8.
On Wednesday, Feb. 9, Smith
and Conley appeared at the
arraignment hearing with local
attorney Janette Branham and
Magistrate Susan Barber-Flood
presiding. Barber-Flood told
the parents that they were in
violation of court orders. Smith
said he was aware of the court
orders but did not want the
child placed in a foster home.

program a powerful antidote


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK At Avon
Park Middle School a unique,
self-regulating student program
goes a long way in combating
gang activity, although it was
not designed to do so.
A special group of seventh-
and eighth-grade students
(sixth-graders are not eligible),
form a Youth Crime Watch and
patrol the campus before
school, between classes, and
directly after.
Their mission is to ensure the
smooth movement of students,
to h6lp them stay honest, and to
act as mediators during
moments of conflict. This does-
n't mean they put themselves
into harm's yay, but that they
help in the early stages of an


NAVY
Continued from 1A
primary recharge area for the
Florida aquifer.
"You could not find a site in
the U.S. with higher potential,
for environmental damage,"
Bullard said.
He quoted the Navy's envi-
ronmental impact statement
that said the explosives TNT
and RDX may leach into the
groundwater in concentrations
above the drinking standard,
and, that aluminum could
exceed the soil screening
benchmark. Bullard fears such
contaminants may find their
way into the Kissimmee River,
Lake Okeechobee and the
Everglades.
Still, according to that same
impact statement, such contam-
inants won't get into the drink-
ing water supply since the area
has no potable wells.
Mark Dussia, environmental
engineer with the Atlantic
Fleet, will be on hand at public
hearings this week to give more
technical answers on possible
soil and water contamination.
Public hearings are at 7 p.m.
today at the Sebring Civic
Center and at 7 p.m. Thursday
in the Avon Park Community
Center.
Conservation
Capt. Kelly Baragar, sta-
tioned with U.S. Fleet Forces
Command in Norfolk, Va., told
commissioners Tuesday that the
Navy is now a partner with The
Nature Conservancy and other
agencies to preserve habitat
outside their bases, as well as


altercation, defusing it before it
becomes a conflict. If the situa-
tion begins to escalate, they go
to a teacher for help.
In addition to patrols, the
group meets every other week
to go over methods or discuss
trends. They screen and vote on
new members, and review each
other's behavior. They have
high standards, and are very
aware of being an example.
Avon Park Police Officer
Angie Sanchez, school resource
officer, who along with In
School Suspension, instructor
Bennie Barrett founded and
advises the group, puffs with
pride when she talks about "her
kids."
She points out that the stu-
dents have to maintain at least a
C average (all have a B or bet-


Baragar said, modem indus-
try and the military don't han-
dle waste materials the same
way they have in the past 40
years.
"There have been draconian
changes in the way we handle
(contaminants)," he said.
Possible noise
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said she was concerned
abut the noise being more than
a nuisance, especially if some
of the larger 1,000- and 2,000-
pound bombs are used.
Baragar said the Navy is
looking at a site directly in the
middle of the Air Force range in
hopes it will produce the least
noise to nearby residents. He
also said Navy pilots are using
more 500-pound bombs than
1,000- or 2,000-pound bombs
to reduce collateral damage. It
also should reduce noise and
contaminants.
Other ranges
, Baragar said finding a site
for the Atlantic Fleet is near
impossible. Pinecastle Impact
Range in the Ocala National
Forest a special use permit
from the U.S. Forest Service-
is the only place on the East
Coast where the Navy can do
live impact training. It's rela-
tively small, he said.
Eglin Air Force Base in the
Panhandle also is available, but
a carrier group won't train in
the Gulf of Mexico during hur-
ricane season. It's too expen-
sive to build a new base, he
said.


ter), and no referrals are
allowed. The students also have
to be adept at diplomacy, and
have some understanding of
human behavior. They also
need a thick skin.
"We're not looking for the
'good' kids," Sanchez said.
"We're looking for kids who
have learned from their mis-
takes. Kids with a strong will,
who believe in a good cause
and their school, who are will-
ing to help make it safe and
happy."
Sanchez, Barrett and the stu-
dent patrol say incidents of
fighting are lower this year, and
more students are expressing an
interest in joining. Already the
group has grown from eight
members almost two years ago,
to 22 members now. Enough so
that each day a patrol of five or
six students is able to move
through the campus, keeping
the peace.
Sanchez added that a school
administration's support is
essential, and she thanked Dan
Johnson, Avon Park Middle
School's principal, for his help.
Currently no other school has
a crime watch, but Sanchez is
hoping graduates of the middle:
school program can bring it to
the high school, and that other
schools will follow suit.
She emphasizes that preven-
tion is the key to the program.

Youth Crime Watch members
don't have to be perfect, in fact
it helps if they have learned
from mistakes; by understand-
ing another person's point of
view, patrol members help
defuse conflicts, and by setting
an example they help maintain
the peace.
'Being a role model is diffi-
cult, but they learn fast who
their real friends are.
"You have to do your job,"
Daija Barrett, Youth Crime
Watch president, said. "Other
people may not go along, or get
upset, but you have to do your
job."
"You have to know how to
act," member Jerry Lee Wright
added.
"I used to be real loud,"
Gelisa Matthews laughingly
said. "Real, real, real loud. I had
a lot of silent lunches last year.
But this year is different."

Continued from 1A
But however important the
role of the police, the first line
of defense against gangs has
always been parents.
Experts plead that it is
important to pay attention and
to ask questions; to know where
teenagers are going and who
they are spending time with. If
a child avoids talking about his
or her friends, ask about them.

the other cheek," interrupts
Wright, and Matthews laughs in
agreement. She then adds seri-
ously that she has gained more
insight and developed more
patience.
"(Being a patrolman) has
changed a lot of members,"
Barrett says.
The Crime Watch meets
every other week, to review and
train. Discussions are frank and
open.
For example, recently a
member was asked to resign.
"Our job is to prevent trouble,"
Wright said, "and she was insti-
gating it."
The group has been at work
for almost two years now, and
members report a change in
attitude toward them.
"There's more respect,"
Barrett said. "Kids who were in
trouble in the past are shaping
up. They control themselves a
little more. Sure some kids are
frequent fliers, but not a big
variety. You see the same faces,


It also is important to set lim-
its and make consequences
clear. It is equally important to
follow through. Experts recom-
mend setting curfews, for
example, when children are
staying out too late-at night, but
be sure to enact it.
Next to parents, teachers and
school administrators are in an
ideal position to recognize
warning signs.
At Sebring High School, the
administration tries to make the
faculty aware of the warning


over and over,"
"Like a revolving door,"
Wright said.
"But most kids," Barrett,
adds, "truly see they want this."
When asked if anyone had
something special to say,
Christal Facey came right to the.
point. "We need donations," she
said, explaining that she and the
other patrolmen no longer have
walkie-talkie .radios to use on
their rounds, as the radios they
did have needed batteries to
operate and were prohibitively
expensive.
However, the group receives
no funding and is therefore
dependent on the community
for help.
In addition to radios, the
group hopes to send a team to
the national convention of
Youth Crime Watch America
every year.
Anyone interested in donat-
ing to the Youth Crime Watch
should call Officer Angie
Sanchez at 471-4333.


signs which graffiti is gang
related, and what other kinds of
territory markers are in use.
No matter if it's the parent
who intercedes, or the school,
the best defense against gangs
is prevention. By working
together, experts say, trouble
can be prevented.
Already, Highlands County
education and law enforcement
officials have met.to discuss the
problem, and the sheriff's office
is putting a multi-agency task
force together.

Marino's Pizza and Subs


a features Italian classics


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Stephanie Granata of Sebring says the few times she's eaten at Marino's Pizza and Subs in Sebring, she
loves the pizza best. Waitress Sandy Brakefield serves the pizza hot from the oven.

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Looking for
some tasty calzone? How about
some zesty stromboli? Marino's
is the place.
Marino's Pizza and Subs,
2310 U.S. 27 North, opened
October 2004 in the Northgate
Plaza, across from Home Depot
(in the Old Peddler's Mall).
Closed on Mondays, it is
open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Tuesday through Thursday and
from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday
through Sunday. It offers a
lunch menu featuring the
immensely popular hot and
cold subs, calzones and strom-
boli priced from $5.95 to $7.25.
A wide variety of pizzas also
are offered: Small for $5.75,
medium at $8.25, and a large
16-inch pizza runs $9.75.
The owner, Marino Santana


said, "We do lots of takeout
with the subs and pizzas. In
fact, we are now looking for a
driver and also night servers for
our evening dinner hours." The
dining area is attractive and
clean, with an intimate setting.
The full dinner menu starts at
3 p.m. featuring all the Italian
classics, like linguine, ziti,
lasagna, ravioli, fettuccine and
parmigianas. Plus there are
favorites like chicken caccia-
tore, veal picatta, cannelloni
and shrimp scampi at reason-
able prices. Marino's also
serves appetizers, desserts, beer
and wine by glass or carafe.
"I've been in the business for
15 years, having recently come


from New Jersey," Marino said.
"We came down here checking
out various towns in which to
start a restaurant, and also to get
away from the cold weather up
north. We love it here, and we
aren't going back."
Marino keeps his customers
returning.
"I serve the best calzone,
stromboli, and Sicilian pizza in
town. People try our New York-
style pizza once and keep com-
ing back," Marino said. "And
that's a real compliment, since
most of our business is by word
of mouth.
Call Marino's Pizza and Subs
at 402-0042 for take out or
delivery.

Director passes torch

The United Way of Central Florida has a new director
- Becky Sharp.
She has big shoes to fill. Outgoing director Susie
Bishop served the agency for five years and presided
over increasingly successful campaigns that raised
money for local needs.
When Bishop came aboard in 1999, her fund-raising
goal was about $300,000. This year, her goal was to raise
$455,000. In January, she expected to surpass that by
$30,000.
Under Bishop's tenure, leadership givers those who
donate $1,000 or more a year grew from nine to 55.
Sharp has impressive credentials as well. A Highlands
County native, she has a bachelor's degree in organiza-
tional management. She ran a catering business for 20
years and then spent 12 years rising through the ranks of
the Highlands County school system from payroll
clerk at Avon Elementary School to human resources.
Highlands County residents are generous people,
something Bishop noted when she announced her resig-
nation. The United Way serves a vital function by chan-
neling that willingness to give to a wide range of organ-
izations that serve diverse needs.
Today, local United Way donations are passed on to 22
agencies that operate 32 human service programs.
Among those are food banks, confidential adoption serv-
ices and programs that enhance the quality of life for
people with mental disabilities.
,For the last five years, Bishop has been the face of the
United Way at the News-Sun and around the county. She
brought much credit to the United Way as she performed
her duties with integrity, personality and class. Now it's
up to a new director to continue that legacy.
We look forward to getting to know Sharp, just as we
send our best wishes to Bishop as she takes on her next
assignment as the business development coordinator
for Glades Electric Cooperative.

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

While ha\ inyg.breakfast.in. a
- loeal .restaurant in Avon Park a
- few years ago, I struck up a
conversation with one of the
long-time local people who was


telling me some history of the
town. He said during World
War II a plane dropped bombs
on the very building we were
in. Luckily they were non-
explosive, being used for prac-
tice bombing out at the Range

A need for live ordnance training


As do all of us in Highlands
County, I too share the concern
about live ammunition being


used at the Avon Park
Air Force Range.
Environmental
damage will occur
and some income
from timbering oper-
ation will be lost.
More importantly, I
have heard the ques-
tion from many peo-
ple, "Why do they
need to use live
ammunition when
there is risk for an'
accident?"


S ,



COMM
ANDREW


I asked the same question of
our Florida Defense Alliance
partner, Louise England, who is
also executive director of the
Economic Development
Commission. She asked Wayne
Nelms, defense coordinator for
the Governor's Office. Mr.
Nelms gave us an opportunity
to go ask the question of those
who know best, the men and
women who serve aboard the
Aircraft Carrier John E
Kennedy:
We were privileged to join'
the carrier during an over-night
training mission similar to what
will be flown with the Avon
Park Air Force Range as the
destination. The Kennedy has
just returned from a six-month
deployment in the Arabian Gulf
where they provided air support
and ground cover for the
Fallujah offensive. You can
read more about that on the
Kennedy's Web page www.nol.
n a v y m i / h o m e
pages/cv67/.
After a tour of the ship, we
were invited to meet with Rear
Admiral Barry McCullough,
commander, John F Kennedy
Strike Group, for a mission
briefing. He told us about the
importance of Florida's military
bases and how they all work


1984 predictions

seem on target

Editor:
Have you ever noticed that
every time that we get involved
in one war or another, 'our
nation goes deeper and deeper
in debt, prices go higher and
higher, and we lose more and
more of our Constitutional
rights and freedoms.
Our corrupt Supreme Court
purposely misinterprets our
Constitution, to take away
more and more of our rights
and freedoms.
While all of the time, the
poor get poorer and poorer,
while the rich get richer and
richer.
Is this a carefully planned
plot by our corrupt govern-
ment, to turn America into
another socialist, dictatorship,
police states and a one world
government?
George Orwell's "1984" pre-
diction seems to be right on tar-
get. The American people had
better wake up and get their
heads out of the sand, before
we get beyond the point of no
return.
Don H. Streeter

It's all location,


together to provide training and
support for the different branch-
es of the military. Military
iJ bases are embedded
in our state and con-
tribute approximate-
ly $40 billion annual-
ly to our economy.
L-\ .. A d m i r a 1
McCullough empha-
-i,. sized the importance
of the Avon Park
ENTARY Range to the Navy
and said that without
JACKSON it their training capa-
- ability would be
severely reduced and
put the Navy's presence in
Florida at risk.
Next, we had an opportunity
to talk with the Carrier Air
Wing Commander Capt.. Mark
Guadignini. He told us more
about the recent deployment in
the Arabian Gulf and the
Kennedy's role in the Fallujah
offensive. One of the points he
made was that although the Air
-Force is what everyone thinks
of when an air offensive is men-
tioned, it was the Navy that
flew the most sorties over
Fallujah.
At the end of his briefing, I
had the opportunity to ask the
questiofi that is on the minds of
many Highlands County citi-
zens. Why do they need to use
live ammunition?
Captain Guadignini said that
it's not the air crews that need
the training. It doesn't matter to
them whether the bombs they
drop are live or inert. They are
made to weigh the same and
leave the aircraft in the same
way.
He said it is the ordnance
crews that arm the weapons and
load them on the aircraft that
need the training. They need to
know how to wire them, fuse
them and load them and they
need to know whether the pro-
cedure was done correctly. The


I'm sorry that the Bombing
Range dropping bombs brings
back bad memories. You state
that you are a Real Estate
Broker. I bought in Lake Placid
15 years ago and I used the old'
real estate saying that when
buying real estate you looked
for location, location and loca-
tion.
With that said, did you not
know that there was a bombing
range six miles north and a 2.4-
mile race track in your back
yard that makes more noise
than a bombing range will and
an airport in your back yard. It
seems to me that if all these
items bother you that you did
not use location, location and
location as all of these items
have been there for up to 70
years.
Mr. Pitman, there is a bomb
dropped within 100 feet of our
service men and women every
day from 30,000 feet that is
saving hundreds if not thou-


only way for them to be sure is
to go through the procedure to
its conclusion on target.
Later, as Ms. England was
being debriefed by Mr. Nelms,
she reported our conversation
with the captain. Mr. Nelms
said that in 1991 while he was
serving as squadron command-
er, the crew of an A6 was killed
because the bombs it was carry-
ing were improperly fused and
deteriorated too close to the air-
craft. The ordnance crew had
not had an opportunity to train
with live ammunition.

My first thought was, could
there be anything more devas-
tating than this? Two young
pilots are lost, families are in
mourning, a young ordnance
crew must live with this mis-
take for the rest of their lives
and an aircraft is destroyed.
My second thought was,
well, yes there could be.
Suppose because live ordnance
training had not taken place, an
entire air wing had their bombs
fused in this way. Suppose they
had been sent to a strategic tar-
get of vital importance ... say
air cover for the Fallujah offen-
sive.

The thought is horrifying,
isn't it?
Thomas Jefferson' said that,
"The price of freedom is eternal
. vigilance." Having a prepared
military is a part of that vigi-
lance and part of that being pre-
pared is continual training,
sometimes with live ordnance.
Terrorism is alive and well
and the world is not a peaceful
place. Although I still don't like
the idea of live ordnance at the
Avon Park Range, I now under-
stand the need.

of the Highlands County Board
of County Commission.


sands of our soldiers. It is called
pin point bombing.
If the bombing range practice
saves one American life the
practice is worth it. Those folks
who built the road to the range
knew it was there and that it
was an active bombing range.
That is the place where they
practice dropping bombs.
I'm speaking of Bob Bullard
- I was surprised that he was
more concerned with the event
title, hunting, fishing and the
range birds and other animals
than he is for the lives of our
service personnel.
We have firing ranges for our
law enforcement personnel so
they can hit a target when
required. The bombing range is
for the same purpose that
167,000 acres belong to the
government. So let them use the
range in peace.
Mr. Pitman, I feel confident
that all the "snowbirds," includ-

In this county, I often hear
the same thing over and over,
"There is just nothing to do!"
I laugh at these people,
because most of the time you
must have an open mind when
you are entering the weekends
here in the "High-C."
I could probably say that I
have been there and done that
when it comes to many of the
activities that this area has to
offer. It can range from camp-
ing out in the Scrubs, to going
out to dinner all dressed up
with your friends.
However, I will make it easy
for you this weekend. You do
not have to poke and pry to find
out what to do; you might not
even have to brain-storm with
your crew this week.
There is actually a ton of fun
things that you are able to get
your hands on this coming
weekend. Oh, the good times
you will have.
First off, if you are looking
to support a wonderful cause
that is not only children friend-
ly, but also is adult oriented, I
have something for you. It is a
cause that is near and dear to
my heart AmericanCancer
Society Relay For Life. It is an
18-hour event that not only cel-
ebrates the life of those who
have fought cancer and won,
but also in memory of those
who have endured the battle.
Starting at 5 p.m. on Friday
at Firemen's Field in Sebring,
Relay kicks off with a big bang.
I would like to encourage
everyone to come on out and
get involved. If it is just for the
exercise, the track is offered all
night long. If it is to get the kids
out of the house there is a
good amount of games going
on. Or maybe you would just
like to come out and socialize; I1
bet that you will see many peo-
ple that you know.
This event lasts all night
until noon on Saturday. There
is no charge to get in, and there
is plenty of food to go around.
And did I mention it is' family-
friendly?
Now, on the exact opposite
end of the spectrum is Ms.
Leap Year brought about by
Avon Park High School. If you
get a kick out of seeing high
school male seniors being
dressed up like females, then
this is surly the show for you.
To see these cross-dressing
young men on stage strutting
their stuff, be sure to be at the
Avon Park Middle School audi-
torium at 7 p.m. There will be a
$3 admission fee with all of the
proceeds benefiting Avon Park
High School Project
Graduation. There is a guaran-
tee that humor will be present
at this event.
I hope that I do not hear,
"there is just nothing to do" this
week, because that is definitely
not the story now. Not only are
these two events going to be a
great time, but they also sup-
port great causes.

a bombing range there. You
know it on the map, a large area

Mr. Pitman, I spent 20 years
in active duty Air Force. Three
plus years in a fighter bombing
unit in Europe, Africa,
England, Tripoli, North Africa
and France where there was
live ammunition used in all
these places and no one was
hurt. These folks who lived
close by were happy for us as
we had liberated them from
Germany's Hitler.
Mr. Pitman, your comment

its 100-plus miles per hour gust
of winds passed through the
area, I was pretty concerned
about my "little house on the
prairie," as I call it. When
phone service was restored, I
called the Sebring Police
1 Department and was told to call
a the sheriff's department. They
were considerate, but very busy
A understandably, with emer-
gency problems.
I then called a gentleman
who lives in the area who I met
d a few years ago and he helped
me out before on one occasion.
When I talked to him about the
storm, he said that he had been
very busy at his house, cleaning
up due to a large hole in his
roof.
When I asked if he thought
he could get to look at my
home in the near future, he said
he had already been there one
night to check for damage and
by flashlight (no power on) he
could see shingles in the yard
h and knew 1 had water leaking
through the roof. He also had
gotten in touch with FEMA and
had a blue roof put on.
It was a tremendous relief
for me to know it was taken
care of. I would like you all to
know that this kind, thoughtful,
courteous, unselfish Christian
gentleman living among you
year round with his lovely wife
and children is Robert Strenth.
I can't thank him enough for
this kind deed, and it's nice to
know we still have a few good
people left in this world.

Accepting the generosity of others


Are you among _
many who are skep-
tic of compliments,
skeptic of love, skep-
tic of the generosity
of others?
Are you always .
questioning the-
motives of others
who bestow honor on
you, whether pub- POIN
licly or privately?
Can you accept PO
kindness with grace?
In life we are PAULINE
rewarded for good
deeds ... for volunteerism, for
community services, excellence
on the job, for academic per-
formance and good behavior.
Whatever the reward is, many
of us are reluctant to accept
praise and recognition, and
when we do, it is with some
reservation. We tend to be
afraid of what others will say.
Some experts believe that
our mistrust in the generosity of
others has to do with the way
we were raised. (No one gave to
you without wanting something
in return.)
Biblical scholars says it is
our pride that is causing us to
question or decline the good-
ness of well-thinking, genuine
people. Others think that when
we open up ourselves to accept
kindness from others we
become vulnerable, we feel
we've lost control, and as
humans we feel the need to
have control over a situation or
circumstance. We feel as if we

owe the donor. We
feel defeated, or that
it is a display of
weakness. We want
to have the upper
hand at all times.
Jesus accepted
gifts. Mary, sister of
Martha, gave Jesus
an extravagant gift by
giving him a massage
with her expensive
bottle of perfume as a
gesture of love. This
gesture bothered
some close to him,


which included Judas. Jesus
also receive the gift of five
loaves and two fish from a boy.
This he blessed and shared with
thousands.
We too have been given
awards or sizeable contribu-
tions to be shared with our
organizations, churches,
schools or other agencies. Jesus
lead by example.
I am also guilty of question-
ing the generosity of others. I
learned at an early age that
when the opposite sex gave
gifts, they wanted something in
return. That people gave out of
pity. I didn'twant anyone giv-
ing me things out of pity, so I
developed that spirit of doubt.
I didn't mind giving, but had
problems receiving.
Recently, my door bell rang
and there stood my friend and
her husband with bags of gro-
ceries. I .reminded myself to
accept the kindness of others
with grace.


An article written by
Christina Schofield in the NIV
Bible Student manual states:
"When we refuse to let others
help us, in a way we are deny-
ing them the chance to love us
because service- is the act of
love. Our pride and independ-
ence stand like roadblocks
between us and nurturing rela-
tionships with lifelong friends."
The next time you consider
letting pride keep you from
receiving help you so badly
need from a person who is
eager to help others, ask your-
self these questions.
M Why is it easier to help
others with a problem they may.
have than to accept their help
when a need arises in my life?
How -is pride detrimental.
to real friendship?
How can I be more hum-
ble?
M What blessing will come
when I let someone help me?
In the coming days, let go of
any inhibitions that are keeping
you from accepting the gifts of
love and friendship offered to
you so generously by those who
care about you, including God.
You will be blessed.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Feb. 29, 2000: Avon Park
scored seven runs in the
first inning on the way to a
24-4 rout at Lake Placid.
Allison Kelly was 5 for 5
and Josette Kniffen hit a
two-run, out-of-the-park
homer for the Lady Red
Devils.

40 Years Ago
Feb. 27, 1965: Andy Sapp
and future mayor Dal Hall
led Lake Placid to the Group
13, Class C basketball
championship. Hall scored
15 points in a 65-22 romp
over Lithia-Pinecrest and
Sapp poured in 29 in a 68-
36 win over Sarasota-
Cardinal Mooney.

It might be the most difficult

Germaine did it Saturday

Wrestling not the
Wrestlemania kind, the kind
the kids in the state finals were

the purest sport there is and it's
definitely the oldest. It's not
hard at all to picture a couple -
of guys drawing a circle in the
dirt and facing off to see who
had to clean out the cave that
night.
And wrestling is also one of
the most difficult sports, which
is why winning a state champi-

the South Florida Community

hits and struck out 13 times,
failing to capitalize on a
strong performance from
freshman left-hander Jordan
Roberts, who had 13 strike-

shoes you have on is of no
consequence. It's all about
style, technique and, most
importantly of all, who wants it
the most.
Likewise, in most .other
sports there is some room for
error. Slip coming out of the
batter's box or get a bad snap
from the center, and there is
opportunity to recover.
Not true in wrestling. It
doesn't matter if a wrestler has
been using his opponent to
clean the mat for the entire
match, one little slip anrd he
can be on his back with the
match over before he knows
what hit him.
Think about it. You're lead-
ing in the late stages of a state
championship match. The thing
you've been working toward
for most of your life is within


your grasp ... and \ou slip on a
drop of sweat. Within three
seconds, the thrill of victory
and agony of defeat switch
places and you're looking at a
silver medal, wondering what
went wrong.
Overtime makes that pres-
sure exponentially more
intense. Germaine had to deal
with that in both the semifinals
and finals and found a way to
win both times.
Wrestling is also the most
humbling of competitions. Go
to the state finals and you'll
see more big, strapping guys
crying thanan where else on
the face of the earth.

year in a row, the Sebring
International Raceway will
play host to the Red Bull
Driver Search Semifinals
The event will be staged in
September and will be the last
event in the series to be held
in the United States.
Up to 20 drivers made up
of run off winners coupled
with a cadre of so-called
"scouted drivers" will be
evaluated. Just like last year
they will pilot two liter Skip
Barber Formula Dodge race
cars.
A team of European racing
experts led by Program
Director Danny Sullivan will
preside over the event and
select the 2005 Finalists.
Sullivan, a former Sebring
competitor, also was a


Formula 1 driver for Tyrrell-
Ford, the 1985 Indy 500 win-
ner and 1988 CART IndyCar
Champion. The search will
begin with a month of open
qualifying starting'April 1.
There are 60 indoor and
outdoor karting facilities
across the country that are
scheduled to hold a competi-
tion to find the three fastest
drivers to progress to the 2005
runoffs. Drivers aged 13-17
years are eligible to partici-

SEBRING The Sebring-
Avon Park Council 5441 of the

Middle School on Saturday
with 53 boys and girls ages 10-
14 competing from Venice, Fort
Myers, Bradenton, North Port,
Sarasota, Punta Gorda, Port
Charlotte, Cape Coral and
Sebring.
Kate Alivoat was the 10-
year-old girls champion joined
by Kevin Muller, the 10-year-
old boy. Eleven-year-old
Ashley Mashay won the girls
section and the 11-year-old boy

in the girls and boys bracket
were Kori Zarzutski and Cody
Hoffner. The girls 13 year old
division was closely contested
and required a playoff eventual-
ly won by Kyela Faett. Patrick
Barabas won the boys bracket.
The 14-year-old girls winner
was Katie Houser and Bobby
Carr won the boys division.
District Deputy Donald
Sliwicki said that these
Regional Championships will
now compete in the State Finals
in Kissimmee on Saturday,
March 12. During April, the
Supreme Council will deter-
mine the International
Champions based on the best
scores during the State compe-
tition.


Hitt was surprised his club got
on the board.
After Roberts faced the first
batter in the top of the 10th
before leaving the mound due
to pitch count concerns, Florida
Southern got three hits off
reliever Colin Marshall (3-1) to
plate the go-ahead run and the
Panthers couldn't break out of
their slump in the bottom of the
inning.
* "Our hitters were non-exis-
tent, non-competitive," Hitt
said. "We scattered five hits and
Trey Cleveland got two of
them, so the other eight guys in
the order got three."

attend the runoffs. Five karters
from each run off will earn a
place in 2005 semifinal to be
held at Sebring.
In past events, the judges
spent a lot of time out on the
track watching the competitors
handle the machines.
"They watched how they
went through the corners, how
they are on the throttle and
gearbox basically how they
were with the car," Sullivan
said.
But that wasn't all the judges
looked at, Sullivan said. There
were a lot of off-track moments
where judges had a chance to
interact with the blue-shirted
hopefuls.
"They wanted to see what
they had in here," Sullivan said,
tapping on his chest. "We
looked for 'the wanrit-to.' "

achieved remarkable success
during their season in Europe

"At the Finals, my judging
panel will be looking for the

The Red Bull Driver Search
program aims to discover and

Making five a



day fun.


Getting children to eat their fruits and vegetables every day
can be a challenge, especially with busy schedules and
sports activities. Here are some helpful tips for making five
servings a day more fun for kids.

* Send healthy, easy snacks for before and after
practice, like bananas, carrot sticks and dried fruits.

* Add flavor with low fat dips like salad dressings for veg-
gies and caramel or chocolate sauce for fruits.

* Try grapes sliced in a salad or frozen as a cool treat.

* Add fruits to cereal or yogurt for breakfast.











In all great meals the main ingredient is Publix.
