SEBRING Highlands
County is no stranger to the
drug trade.
It is also no stranger to drug-
related deaths.
One such suspected death
was the recent case of Guy
Martin Jackson, 40, of Lake
Placid. Highlands County sher-


iff's deputies found his body on
Dec. 11, 2004, on a deserted
road in Leisure Lakes, left there
by an associate in whose house
he died overnight. Jackson had
allegedly been abusing drugs,
including crack, a form of
cocaine.
Cocaine is by far one of the
most popular and potent drugs.
A powerfully addictive stimu-
lant, according to the National
Institute on Drug Abuse, it
comes in a powdered,
hydrochloride salt form or in a
rock crystal. Regardless of how

suburban and urban areas.
Lt. Bobby Duncan with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office said it's on the rise local-
ly and is hard to track. People
who use the drug tend to be


extremely paranoid and stick
together.
Still, in the first nine months
of 2004, the latest numbers
available, the sheriff's office
Special Operations Unit seized
2,507 grams of methampheta-
mine from makers, traffickers,
dealers and users in controlled
purchases and search warrant
arrests. That total includes a
whopping one-month seizure of
2,284 grams in June 2004.
Duncan said there are more
and more labs, and they are get-
ting smaller. The components
would fit into a standard waste-
basket, and are very volatile.
They include anhydrous ammo-
nia, solvents, lithium batteries,

Avon Park residents mixed on range change,


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Avon Park residents,
those most likely to see the immediate
effect of the U.S. Navy plans for live
ordnance bombing, feel mixed emotions
about it.
They just want to hold Navy officials
to their word.
At Thursday's public hearing at the
Avon Park Community Center, several
people repeated their assertions that live
ordnance bombing at the Avon Park Air
Force Range would kill or injure endan-
gered species, damage the Kissimmee
River and Everglades through surface
runoff, and upset or poison the citrus and
cattle industry.
However, several speakers said they
understood the need for such training


and said they couldn't see where previ-
ous use of the range from 1941-92 had
caused any damage.
Billy Sebring said he had hunted there
* since he was 10 years old, well before
the base existed.
"With all the bombing, I've seen no
change in that land," he said. "I still hunt
the same way with the same type of
(dogs) and hunt the same animals. There
are less of them now, but there are also
more hunters."
Lou Brough recalled when the range
was purchased from farmers in the area
in 1941. He remembers many cattle dips
troughs for dipping cattle in arsenic
pesticide and saw many lead bombs
dropped on the range.
"We still have not heard of contami-
nation in the wells," he said.

He suggests drilling permanent moni-
tor wells at the range to catch any possi-
ble water table contamination.
Tony King, who has lived in
Highlands County all his life, said that
despite Navy plans to clean up after each
bombing exercise, there will be no way
it can all get cleaned up, especially since
a live bomb will penetrate 10 or more
feet into the water table when it
explodes. He warned that if a bomb goes
astray, it can't be undone.
"I believe in what they are doing," he
said, "but let them do it somewhere
else."

Crash victim

identified
LAKE PLACID -
Florida Highway Patrol
have identified the man
killed in a two-car crash
early Thursday morning on
State Road 70 about three-
tenths of a mile from
Placidview Drive.
Russell James Marco
Amato, 23, of Meadville,
Pa., died when his 2003
Hyundai crossed the center
line and ran head-on into
an oncoming semitrailer.
According to reports, the
truck caught fire and
burned, closing the high-
way down for several
hours.
The driver of the truck,
38-year-old Jose Ramos,
and his passengers, 27-
year-old Yaneisy Gonzalez
and 2-year-old Roger
Ramos, suffered only
minor injuries.
They were treated at
Florida Hospital Lake
Placid.
The accident brings to
nine the total of traffic-
related fatalities in
Highlands County this
year. That averages out to
one per week.
Last year, Highlands
County registered a total of
16 traffic-related deaths.

Emergency management gets


$200,000 for haz-mat team


Plans in place

to deal with

bad situations
By PHIL ATT1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County's Hazardous Materials
Team has received $200,000 in
grants from the Regional
Domestic Security Task Force.
With that money, the local
haz-mat team can buy equip-
ment up to the -standard of the
regional task force, which will
make Highlands County a state
asset. It shows how much of a
good job the local haz-mat team
has done in training, for poten-
tial situations, said Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichols.
Highlands County, which
already has interlocal agree-
ments with other counties,
could be called upon to aid
another county as the closest
haz-mat team. It may not
increase the number of times
the team gets called out,
Nichols said, but it will defi-
nitely improve the level of serv-
ice to Highlands County resi-
dents.
"Since we started (a haz-mat
team), we haven't had to call
Fort Myers or Polk County and
have them come here," Nichols
said.
Out of the grant funds,
$50,000 will buy a mass casual-
ty trailer for an emergency that
has several different, types of
injuries, such as an incident at
the race track. The remaining
$150,000 will buy specific haz-
mat team equipment, such as
chemical identification and

Emergency Management Director Bill Nichols points out the color-
coded table of contents on the county's hazardous material sites
manual. It's a key to finding information in a hurry on hazardous
materials sites in Highlands County with descriptions of what mate-
rials are in the county and how to handle them. Each emergency
vehicle carries a similar book and it has to be updated regularly.


monitoring equipment.
Training for worst
The haz-mat team- just fin-
ished rope training at the Avon
Park Fire Department tower.
The next step is "confined
space" training, which will
have team members crawling
through a section of pipe to res-
cue someone.
The last part is extrication.
Once that's done, the team will
be classified as a "special oper-
ations team," capable of light
technical rescue.
Planning for worst
Planning for each scenario is
hard because emergency
response would change with the
weather, or with the traffic pat-
terns at that time of day.
Nichols has 54 facilities with
hazardous chemicals, including
chlorine, sulfuric acid or muri-
atic acid. These are materials
that must be reported if stored
on site in sufficient amounts to
be a danger. By contrast, any
facility that does store a
"reportable quantity" of haz-
ardous material, even for just a
day, must report it.
An incident with such chem-
icals could force an evacuation,


but where and how far depends
on the wind speed and direction
and the amount of release. It
also depends on whether the
substance is lighter or heavier
than air or water. That affects
how it behaves.
Nichols keeps a large yellow
book with agency and emer-
gency response numbers and
each site listed with a photo-
graph, physical description,
material safety data sheets on
what's stored there, and a map
with a possible affected zone
marked off.
Nichols lists as many as 25
variables on what could hap-
pen, but within reason. The
book has to be small enough to
be portable in a fire engine or in
a staff vehicle. It's better than it
was, Nichols said.
"When I got here I had to sort
through 400-plus pages and
hope we could find (informa-
tion)," he said.
Many of the sites are water
treatment facilities (chlorine) or
entombed batteries for pumps
and relays (sulfuric acid).
Nichols said there are only
eight to 10 official hazardous
materials stored in the county.
They are just at a lot of sites.


located in a distressed rural
area, or those whose grant pro-
posals represent a significant
upgrade in employee skills.
The grants provide funding
to cover the expenses of
instructors, curriculum devel-
opment and textbooks or manu-
als, and are arrived at by formu-
la, which includes a company
match component. In
2003/2004 businesses were
required to pay a minimum of
50 percent of the requested
training cost.
Businesses are responsible
for all supporting paper work.

Youth academy scores high with inspectors OBITUARIES


American Correctional Association gives
the Avon Park Youth Academy a 98.9


out of a possible 100

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Once again
Avon Park Youth Academy
Director Pete Zeegers is a
happy man.
In the past, the academy has
'-rawn national attention and
won international awards for its
innovative programs.
This month, it scored just
short of perfect in an' accredita-
tion inspection by the American
Correctional Association.
Its preliminary score was
98.9 out of a possible 100.
Three years ago, it missed the
highest mark by a few points.
The final results could be
higher. The ACA measures
academies against 450 stan-
dards, and the Avon Park Youth
Academy only missed four.
Zeegers hopes to get a waiv-
er on two of those, noting that
the academy is constructed in a
\va\. that physically prevents
compliance.
"For example, under their
standards you're supposed to
'have one cell per resident," he
;explained. "Our guys share
'bedrooms in the homes where
'they are staying."
Whereas the Florida
(Department of Juvenile Justice
automatically reviews youth
academies each year, the Avon
Park Youth Academy invited
ithe ACA to inspect it once
every three years.
I "The ACA has been in exis-
itence for over 100 years,"
.eegers said. "To score this
Igh with this group is really
prestigiouss"
When the ACA made its ini-
itial inspection it 2002, it found

seven areas. Those were given
special attention.
"We got every one back we
missed last time, except those
physical plant issues," Zeegers
said.
A few others will be correct-
ed, Zeegers said, but that will
require construction.
"We can do it," he said.
"There's always room for
improvement."
Zeegers credited his staff
with gaining the high marks.
"They do a great job. We're
really lucky to have this caliber
of folks working here."
Now comes the tough part -
maintaining the status. Zeegers
already has plans for that -
doing more of the same.
Because the academy scored
the "deemed" status with the
state Department of Juvenile
Justice, its inspectors will con-
duct an annual quality assur-
ance review this year.
That, said Zeegers, will give
the academy breathing room
and the ability to launch some
new programs.
"We can focus on some sys-
tems that will give these kids a
long term benefit," he said.
Zeegers said the secret to the
academy's success has been
keeping the young men busy all
the time.
While the inspection was tak-
ing place, Zeegers said, two
crews of his boys were working
on projects in the community.
That gave auditors the opportu-
nity to see what the residents do
on a daily basis.
One group was working at
First Baptist Church in Avon
Park through the Home
Builders Institute. The entrepre-
neurial business group was at a
local Rotary Club working on
lawn maintenance. :
"The kids were really excited
about showing off their work
and showing off their programs.
"The best security is having a
good program," Zeegers said.
The accreditation procedure
will be finalized once Zeegers
has an interview before the
ACA board. That will happen in
Baltimore, Md., sometime in
the summer.
In the meantime, Zeegers has
his eye on teaching his young
charges new skills while beef-
ing up some existing programs.

"I'd like to see us start build-,
ing our own furniture," Zeegers
said. "And I want to strengthen
our horticulture, our auto
mechanics, our auto detailing
shops and our graphics design."
Those are all skills Zeegers
would like to begin marketing
in the community especially
the graphic design class. He
said the boys can make business
cards and pamphlets at a good
price.
That income is the final step
in showing the young men that
their newfound skills can pay
off.
"It gets our kids that practi-
cal, financial-based vocational
experience," he said.
Each year, the graphics
department designs Christmas
cards that accompany the
Christmas cookies baked by the
academy's culinary department.
The gifts generally are dis-
tributed to local officials and
community leaders.

Park Youth Academ3. It is one of the perks received for being
named the academy's employee of the year.

Employee of the year

credits pastor for award
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Suer
SEBRING Tony Mallory has been named as the 2004
Employee of the year at the A\on Park Youth Academy an
achievement he credits to his pastor.
Mallory is the security dean in tie academy's education
department. He said his pastor, Bishop Major Callahan. and a
fellow worker were the reasons he chose his occupation.
Mallory had been working in the food service industry in
Tampa when this academy's security chief his longtime
friend Marvin Harris showed him around the academy.
"I was always good with kids." Mallory said. "I knew this
job was for me."
His boss, academy director Pete Zeegers, agrees "Tony
Mallory is a loyal and dependable person. He's on the ball, he's
intelligent and he's great with the kids."
As security dean, Mallory 'superises the movement and
activity of the residents inside the school It is his responsibili-
ty to make certain things run smoothly.
"That's what he does. With Mr. Mallory things move like
clockwork." Zeegers said. "He pro% ides great support to the
teachers, the staff and the kids."
Mallory credits his faith for his ability to connect with the
academy residents.
"Bishop Major Callahan has been my inspiration," he said.
"He has been my confidant and my friend. He changed my
life."
The employee of the year is chosen from the 12 previous
employees of the month. The academy's 140 staff members
vote for the recipient.
Mallory has been tapped for the honor several times, but this
is the first time he received it.
As part of the honor, Mallory % ill receive a trip to the theme
park of his choice, hotel accommodations and spending money.
Mallory said he still wasn't certain which he would choose.
"Wherever my son wants to go. that's where I'll take him," he
said %with a smile.
Mallory alreadyhas received a plaque for his office in cere-
monies last month.
Perhaps more lasting is the premier parking space that
Mallory will have for a year. It's in front of the administration
building marked "Staff of the year Mr. Mallory."

Habitat Home to be

dedicated Monday


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Another fami-
ly will get the keys to their
Habitat for Humanity Home at
a dedication service Monday.
The public is invited. It will
be at 5:30 p.m. at 114 White
Pine Drive.
Funding for the home was
made possible by donors who
wish to remain anonymous.
Their desire was to provide a
home for a deserving family in
memory of Lt. Col. George
Marion Boone Jr.
Boone entered the U.S. Army
Reserves in 1938 while still in
high school. In July 1948, he
entered the competitive tour
program, and in October 1949,
he was commissioned as a sec-
ond lieutenant.
In May 1.950, he became a
courier and junior duty officer
of the staff of General Omar
Bradley, Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Following this tour, he joined
the 3rd Infantry Regiment and
upon promotion to major,
became the executive officer of
the .1st Battalion, 3rd
Regimental Operations Officer


and commanded the 3rd
Battalion, 160th Infantry
Regiment.
Boone served as a professor
of military science at the
University of California, in
Santa Barbara. In 1965, he was
assigned to the Pentagon as
chief of the Emergency and
Contingency Planning Office of
the Chief of Information.
' A devout Catholic, Boone
attended Mass daily. He was a
third order Franciscan, a fourth
degree member of the Knights
of Columbus, a member of the
First Governor's Foot Guard in
Connecticut and a member of
the -local Military Officers
Association of America.
Boone was active in organi-
zationg that served people of all
age groups from high school
Reserve Officers Training
Corps program to American
war veterans.
He received numerous
awards, merits and badges dur-
ing his military service.

tion, call 453-9695. To make a

School board gets $6,000 from

sale of fruit on construction site


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Dec. 18,1969.
Highlands County School
Board has given approval to
preliminary plans for the sec-
ond phase of the construction at
Lake Placid Elementary
School.
Following a master plan
worked out before the school
was started, Architect Jim Heim
has drawn plans for additional
classrooms, library and admin-
istrative units needed to com-
plete the county's newest ele-
mentary school.
Heim estimated that the new
construction will cost $16 per
square foot for a total of


$384,000 if the entire unit is
built. The large group instruc-
tion area and some classrooms
are to be list alternates when
bids are asked.
At its December meeting the
school board formally accepted
the Lake Placid construction
completed this Fall.
Watson and Company, archi-
tects for the new high schools,
told the board plans are pro-'
gressing rapidly now and it may
be possible to ask for bids earli-
er than the July target date.
The board's fiscal advisor,
Wainwright and Ramsey, said
the outlook for selling the $4.5
million bond issue to finance
the buildings was improved by


the Legislature's raising the
bond interest ceiling to 7.5 per-
cent.
Other Business Mrs. Vera
Walker resigned as secretary in
the instructional office, and
Mrs. Peggy Andrews was
named as her successor.
Mrs. Grace E. Wade was
named para-professional at
Hopewell and Mrs. Helen Faye
Lindsey was named clerical
aide at Lake Placid Elementary.
Resignations were accepted
from three teachers: Eleanor
Thomas Nazaruk, Avon
Elementary; Larry Isbell at
Sebring High; Harriett Isbell at
Woodlawn. Mrs. Leon Garner
was named to replace Mrs.
Isbell.
Sale of grapefruit on the
Avon Park High School build-
ing site was approved. Eddie
Stephens had offered $1 per
box for approximately 6,000
boxes of fruit.

Friday morning, Michelle
Pasquino, manager of Lake
Placid Middle School's cafete-

fresh rolls for the day. She
already had a batch of cinna-

None of this was special, just

hydrogen peroxide and
ephedrine or pseudoephedrine
tablets.
Duncan said the ephedrine
drugs are absolutely essential to
the cooking process. That's
why consumer medications that
contain it like Sudafed -
are becoming more controlled.
Street methamphetamine -
"speed," "meth" or "chalk" -
is a rock-like substance either
snorted or injected. Metham-
phetamine hydrochloride -
"ice," "crystal," "glass" or
"tina" is clear chunky crys-

according to purity, geographic
region, source and availability.
Meth produces feelings of

COCAINE
Continued from 1A
cocaine is used or how fre-
quently, it can cause a heart
attack or stroke, resulting in
sudden death, the institute
reports.
According to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, during the first
six months of 2004, there were
820 deaths across the state
where autopsies' shou ed
- cocaine in the b'6y. Of those.
264 had cocaine ruled as the
cause of death.
Still, according to Special
Agent John King with the
Sebring FDLE office,
Highlands County is seeing
more prescription drug-related
deaths from mixing pain killers
Oxycontin or Darvocet -
with alcohol.
Often, people in Jackson's
age group late 30s to early
40s fit that profile, King
said.
In, Judicial District 10 -
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties 20 people who died
from January to June 2004 had
cocaine in their bodies. It was
ruled as the cause in five
deaths, and was the direct cause
twice in five cases where it was
the only drug present.
The Florida Medical
Examiner Association report
states that the three most com-
mon drugs found after death
were alcohol, benzodiazepines
such as Alprazolam and
Diazepam, and cocaine, in that
order. The drugs that caused the
most deaths were cocaine,
methadone, all benzodi-
azepines, oxycodone, Alpra-
zolam, alcohol, morphine and
hydrocodone.
Prescription drugs were
found more often than illicit
drugs. However, the medical
report stated that more prescrip-
tion drugs were being tracked.
Cocaine arrests
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Special
Operations Unit, during the first
nine months of 2004, seized
602 grams of powder cocaine
and 457 grams of crack. These
were mostly controlled pur-


ria lasting from two to 16 hours.
Bikers and truckers once used it
to stay awake on long journeys.
Users might engage in obses-
sive cleaning or tidying.
Duncan said he's seen them
take apart television sets piece
by piece just to have something
to do.
For many users, the biggest
effect is a sense of sexual liber-
ation, which can result in mad,
abandoned sexual activity for
hours, sometimes days on end.
Central Florida historically
has had a significant metham-
phetamine problem, spreading
out from Polk County. Most
local methamphetamine comes
from high-volume laboratories
in California, Mexico, and
southwestern states. Some
comes from local labs in single-
family homes, apartments,. stor-
age buildings, cars, and wooded
areas.
The cooking process pro-
duces lethal fumes that are very
explosive, Duncan said. Some


meth labs are discovered after a
freak house fire or explosion.
For that reason, law enforce-
ment usually brings in its own
hazardous materials teams. Tim
Eures, Highlands County's
emergency operations director,
said when his haz-mat team vis-
its a commercial site, materials
safety data sheets, list all chemi-
cals, which are clearly marked
where they are stored. Meth
labs could have various
unmarked chemicals mixed in
volatile amounts anywhere on
the premises.
Local producers will steal
'their production chemicals,
such as anhydrous ammonia, a
common liquid fertilizer and
highly corrosive and toxic sub-
-stance, taken from farms.
Producers tend to place it in
propane tanks, coolers, fire
extinguishers, and other con-
tainers that are not designed to
store it safely, leading to anoth-
er safety hazard, the DEA.
states.


Cocaine related deaths
In Judicial District 10, of those who died either direct-
ly or indirectly from cocaine use:
20 percent were 50 and older,
60 percent were ages 35-50, and
20 percent were ages 26-34.
In the state of Florida, of those who died either direct-
ly or indirectly from cocaine use:
1 percent were younger than 18,
12.5 percent were ages 18-25,
16.7 percent were ages 26-34,
51.9 percent were ages 35-50, and
, ... n17.8 percept were 50 and older. ..


chases and search Warrant
seizures that don't include those
made by road patrol deputies or
municipal police.
Sheriff's Capt. Mark
Schrader said road patrol
deputies make several drug
arrests from simple traffic stops
for minor violations. The same
holds true for Avon Park and.
Sebring police when a search of
a car reveals drugs either pack-
aged for sale or use. Drug users,
much like anyone else, prefer to
drive intor qn r-.o tr aPt their


supplies rather than go on foot,
Schrader said.
Sometimes, deputies and
officers arrest people from out
of county for drug possessions
or purchase. Schrader believes
they may only be visiting rather
than driving over from the
coasts. Drugs are too available
everywhere for people to drive
far to get them, he said.

Christopher Tuffley


Bowled over

by machines'
Go behind the scenes at
Kegel Bowling Center, 6800
U.S. 27 N., Sebring, and you
walk into another world filled
with whirring gears, robotic
arms, computer chips and a lit-
tle spit and baling wire; it's
part spaceship and part Erector
Set.
Two men, Charlie Young
and James Tucker, spend their
time keeping the automatic pin
setting machines there operat-
ing smoothly.
Sometimes the job is easy,
sometimes it's a challenge, it
all depends on the machines,
and Tucker, for one, is con-
vinced they think.
It never fails, he said, that
when he's ready and waiting
for trouble, everything runs
smoothly; but let him run.an
errand to the front desk and no
sooner than he's on the wrong
side of the door everything
will break loose, and he'll end
up having to run back to them.
I can vouch for that, it's
exactly what happened
Monday night when I spent the
evening following Tucker
around.
We had been hoping for at
least a little trouble, so I could
reset a pin,, or untangle a bowl-
ing:ball pile-up, but no, the
machines had happily labored
on.
Then, when Tucker was
asked to reset circuit breakers
in another part of the building,

Pin heads need not apply


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING -Maintaining
pin setting machines at a bowl-
ing alley requires skill, special-
ized knowledge and creativity.
The machines themselves,
are complicated and wonderful,
each part interacting with
another. No two are exactly the
same, because wear on the parts
leads to individuality.
Because Kegel Bowling
Center is a world leader in the
field of bowling, the mechanics
are encouraged to be creative in
other ways as well. Charlie
Young and James Tucker, the
two primary mechanics, are
always on the lookout to find
ways to make the machines
more efficient.
These days that often means
finding ways to computerize the
process.
Already Kegel machines can
report the number of their mal-
functions, as well as a game's
action. For example, lane 15
has gone 385 games without a
missing a pin.
Such reliability is the result
of mechanics who take their
work seriously. Take Tucker,
whose father, Al Tucker, has
worked for Kegel for decades.
When he was only 7 or 8, he
was already hanging around,
working with his dad, drilling
out components on older
machines.
Although he's 21, he knows
each machine by sound and rep-
utation, and starts his day
spending time observing them,
paying attention, to how the
belts are running, and the
hinges swinging. He has
learned what to look and listen
for, so trouble can be avoided
before it starts. -..-..... .
"E\ern thing.ha5 to be square

For Your Home Shopping



features it all in new mall


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING A little bit of
everything is inside the For
Your Home Shopping, a newly
opened shopping mall.
There are Debby's silk flow-
ers, Flip Flop fashions, and
Avon by Rosemary, where you
can pick up or place a special
order or buy directly off the
shelf. There's even JR's
Wireless World, offering a vari-
*ety of cell phone accessories.

.and we had-wended ourtway,
down a series of lorig.hallways,
just as we got to the last door,
we could hear a call for lane
four over the loud speaker, and
off Tucker went, at a full run,
with me puffing along behind.
By the time I caught up to
:him.he was already up on the
,cat walk, pin fork in hand,
:resetting the pin.
Which is another way of
saying that the night went
without incident, good for the
Pink Lady bowling league, but
i bad for a writer looking for
material.
On the other hand, watching
the machines at work was fas-
cinating.
A metal frame hangs over
the back end of the lane, hid-
den from public view. It's
called the table.
Hanging from the table is a
Rube Goldberg-like series of
wires and gizmos and clicking
things, some of which move,
some of which don't, but ill of
which exist to collect fallen
pins and replace them upright
*in the correct spot.
There are cups that look like
inverted shin guards and are
made of durable plastic, and
cells that are made of metal
with a retractable grip; beneath
them is a broom-like head.

. Wheels offers quality and best-
priced medical uniforms and
alterations. And aromatic fresh
arrangements are at Flowers
Unlimited.
The owner of this cozy shop-
ping mall, Margarita Munoz-
Ortiz, also sells dried fruit and
handmade leather animals, such
as tigers, giraffes and gorillas.
Presently in the works are plans
for paying electric, telephone
and cable bills here.
After the closing of the
Sebring Outlet Mall, these
friendly, helpful vendors relo-,
cated into this intimate, inviting


The bowler throws the ball.'
It rolls, spins, hurtles, or (heav-
en forbid) bounces down the
lane, where hits however many
pins, and is guided to the side.
,by curved metal back plates,,
where it is forced to a pickup
area. A belt, about four or five
inches wide, running a vertical
loop, using friction, grabs the
ball and pulls it up to a graded
track where gravity causes it to
roll toward the console at the
head of the lane.
At the same time, the broom
head sweeps the end of the
lane, pushing the fallen pins to
the rear onto a wide conveyor
belt which delivers them to a
catch basin at the foot of the
pin wheel.
The pin wheel, which is
housed in a casing, is a hollow
metal ring with the side cut
out. This ring spins at a high
revolution so when the pin is
swept back, it is forced into the
wheel which spins it up to the
top of the table. This is where
a series of narrow conveyor
belts carry it to the cup, which
feeds it to cell, which delivers
it to the lane.
The pin wheels'stand quite
tall, over five feet, and the
workings of the pin and ball
collection system are taller
than it, so you have to use cat-
walks to move around. These
are made of wood and steel
and are painted red for danger.
Walking over and around the


setting. The abundance of unex-
pected discoveries makes it
delightful just to meander
through and look.,
Hours of operation are 9 a.m.
to 6 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. The shopping mall is
at 1423 U.S. 27 North. For Your
Home Shopping is just .4 miles
north of Lakeshore Mall, next
to Pinch-A-Penny, and across
from the Comfort Lodge.
Access is at Sebring Hills'
entrance, then right to the strip
mall at the end.
For details, call 385-5466.


16 pin setting machines
reminded me of the engine
room of a ship, only louder,
which is saying something.
The clicking and whirring,
metal on rnetal sounds, create
constant background noise to
the periodic knocking of wood
on wood as pins tumble, fall,
and roll to the back. Only
knocking doesn't quite capture
the volume. Remember, we're
talking 16 bowling balls, and
160 flying pins every few min-
utes. Think loud.
These machines, I learned,
have to be taken seriously.
They can't kill you, but they
can leave you shy a finger, toe
or arm. The parts are precision
balanced and machined. All are
kept well lubricated, and some
move at tremendous rates of
speed; catch a stray strap or
chain in them and you'll be in
trouble before you can say the
word.
Fortunately, I was sternly
warned before hand, and
tucked every possible danger
away some things not even
I will do for a story.

oranges for Ward's Nursery in

crooks. Only thing is,
they are not fishing
for bass, they are fish-
ing for money.
"Phishing" is the
hottest Internet scam -
to come along. It is a
simple scam and most
deceiving in the man- CON
ner in which it is per- 0U
petrated. Identifi-
cation thieves copy
and paste the logos of M
your bank or credit MA
card company into
phony e-mails and send them to
you over the Internet.
The e-mail says they need to
verify your account information
or that your account has been
compromised. If you click on
the link posted in the e-mail you
are immediately directed to a
form you must complete. Fill
out the form and presto, your
ID and money will be stolen.
The crooks are hoping you
will provide the information
without investigating the source
of the e-mail. Unfortunately,
they are usually right.
People tend to provide the
information only to realize after
hitting the enter key that per-
haps they acted too hastily. The
fact is, banks 'and credit card
companies do not contact cus-
tomers via e-mail, phone or
mail to request or verify securi-
ty information about passwords
or personal identification num-
bers.
To give you an idea of what
to watch for, below is an exam-
ple of a fraudulent e-mail going
out to Fifth Third Bank cus-
tomers. Most phishing e-mails
are similar. Therefore, if you
see one like this in your in-box,
contact your bank or credit card
company post haste. Also, bear
in mind that a phishing e-mail


,'. may come disguised
.; as a note from your
electricity provider,
Cable company or
other service
providers you do
business with.
Therefore, be vigi-
lant with all unso-
licited e-mails.

A better SAT?
By JUSTIN POPE
AP Education Writer
Critics of the SATs say there's
more to intelligence than finding
grammar errors and solving
geometry problems or even,
this year, than showing you can
write an essay.
But how to measure those
other abilities? Robert
Sternberg, a Yale University psy-
chologist, believes he's devel-
oped a test that does just that.
The test, dubbed "The Rainbow
Project," evaluates creativity and
problem-solving rather than ana-
lytical skills. Instead of multiple
choice questions, it asks stu-
dents to write captions for car-
toons, outline how they would
solve a problem, or write stories
with unusual titles like "The
Octopus's Sneakers" or "35,381."
What most interests many
experts about Sternberg's early
experiments is that they appear
to predict 'students' freshman
GPA in college more' accurately
than SAT scores, and with a nar-
rower gap between ethnic and
socio-economic groups.
"If you're growing up in a
poor family, there's got to be
more emphasis on developing
creative and practical skills,"
Sternberg said.

We don't need
another Vieques
Editor:-
* The United States Navy
plans to destroy.Florida's fresh
water supply.
What was the full extent of
damage done on an 'iTsand east
of Puerto Rico, a bombing
range at Vieques?
The 'Navy closed Vieques .
Bombing Range because
150,000 people protested that
their health was damaged.
Scientists conducted studies
at Vieques Range and found
heavy metals in crabs, fish and
"people" of the island. Mercury
levels, for example, were high-
er than the Environmental
Protection Agency allows in 33
percent of those tested.
According to a report by
Smithsonian in January 2004,
the EPA has cited the Navy 102
times for water quality viola-
tions on Vieques. "
Will the people of Florida
have a say in this most serious
threat to their health and the
health of the industries that this
effects such as the cattle indus-
try, the citrus industry, the rice
and sugar industry and, of
course tourism? I have, serious
doubts that they will.
This will be shoved down
the throats of all Floridians
because the State Supreme
Court and the State Attorney
General will not protect the
people they are supposed to
protect, even though they took
an oath to do so.
I am sure the 150,000 people
who protested about the dam-
age to their health and property,
would rather this had not been
allowed to have happened in
the first place and that those in
political control who allowed
this to happen should be held
responsible. This is a problem
that need not have to happen,
just as our problem need not
happen.
The Navy has admitted one
type of high explosive residue
called RDX a carcinogen -


might leacl into the groundwa-
ter at levels high enough to
warrant clean-up, they also
admitted that aluminum,
chromium and nickel would
also leach.

by the Smithsonian in January
2004, where the Navy was
cited by the EPA 102 times for
water, quality. violations in
Vieques:
"The U.S. Navy predicts that
live ordnance bombing on the

will impact ground water."

Trim the trees
with more care
Editor:
I love Sebring. I graduated
from Sebring High School and
in retirement return several
times a year. I live in our fami-
ly home built by my grandpar-
ents in 1920. I love walking
from it to our wonderful
library, sitting at the pier and
watching the sunset.
We have so much to be
proud of in the appearance of
our town the original city
design, the cluster of civic and
theater buildings on the lake
and now the creative art vil-
lage. Sebring is one of the most
beautiful small cities in the
state.
But I dread being here in
February that's when the
tree hackers strike.
Last year they pruned all the
trees on Ridgewood into lol-
lipops. Now they are hacking
on. the crepe myrtles along
Lakeview Drive. They chop off
the tops making them into what
Florida Agriculture Department
call "hat racks." The ag depart-
ment says this is the worst
example of pruning small trees.
A picture of one plus pruning
tips for trees is in an easy-to-
read brochure available at this
year's county fair.
Why is it so hard to under-
stand that small trees are not
shrubs and that flowering
shrubs should not be
"trimmed" into geometric balls
and cubes like hedges? Just
because everyone has a power
tool to trim doesn't mean
everything needs a trimmed
shape. Each tree variety has a
natural growth shape it isn't
a rigid geometry.
The Circle is truly beautiful.
The mature trees, the newer

LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware

Who is

responsible?
It seems to me that one thing
our kids do so well is test our
cardiac fitness. Forget jogging,
bicycling, or the treadmill.
Teenagers are capable of acts
that will send your heart rate up
higher than those three activi-
ties combined.
Take, for example, the fact
that John is learning how to
drive. This means that an adult
has to be sitting next to him
when he gets behind the wheel.
I have been that adult on occa-
sion. One time, I had to be
reminded to breathe as mail-
boxes and street signs flashed
by us and looked very close.
Last weekend Don sat next
to our oldest while I sat in the
middle seat of oui van and tried
to distract myself by reading. It
was hard to do as John whizzed
around the empty parking lot
we had chosen, his reflexes
honed by countless hours of
video game playing. At one
point, my usually wise husband
suggested John try to parallel
park between a tree and a sign.
I had never seen Don grip a seat
quite so hard before as our son
maneuvered the car and gave
us visions of dented bumpers.
Now, as bad as this is, and as
frightening, it seems that
Orlando teens have found new
ways to frighten their parents.
They are engaging in a new
activity that has been called
"garage jumping."
According to a news story
that was forwarded to me by a
friend on the Internet, Orlando
youth have taken to leaping
from public parking garage to
public parking garage for the
thrill of it. Let me add that
these parking garages are 80
feet off the ground. The article
,cites the story of one teen who
tried the jump but fell six sto-
ne, and \%as knocked uncon-
scious.
His father was naturally
i:i".4set His son survived the fall
but of course was injured. .The
father has. expressed concern
about further injuries.
OK. Put yourself in the
father's shoes a minute. What
would you do if your teenager
was injured because he and his
friends were garage jumping?
Pick A, B, C, or D.
A) After I learned that my
child was going to be. all right,
I would ground him and other-
wise discipline him so he
would not do this again.
B) After I learned that my
child was going to be all right,
I would sit him down and
explain the dangers of garage
jumping so that he would not
do this again.
C) I would do a combination
of A and B.
D) I would sue the city of
Orlando and the owner of the
garage for not fencing off the
garages. so the kids can't jump
off them.
Guess what the family of this
teen is doing? If you picked
"D" you have a true under-
standing of why we are called a
litigious society.
Yes, the family is suing the
city of Orlando and the garage
owner for not doing enough to
stop the kids from their thrill
jumping. The logical conclu-
sion to that act is they think it is
the fault of the city and the
owner that their kids are engag-
ing in behavior that endangers
life and limb.
This bothers me. Did the
garage owner tell these kids it
was OK to jump? Did he take
them by the hand and push
them over the edge? Why is it
not the kid's responsibility to
use the brains God gave him
and understand that jumping
off a six-story edifice might not
be the best thing for your
health? What about the parent's
responsibility to teach said

ones taking the place of those
that have died and the flower
beds WOW, it really makes
Sebring special. The person
who planted the flower beds
did a wonderful job.
But who thought the azaleas
needed a crew cut? These
shrubs would now have four
times the blooms and truly be
spectacular if some thoughtless
person had noticed that they
were trimming out the flower
buds making a crew cut. Is it so
hard a concept to understand
that flowering trees and shrubs
have a natural form, a best time
to be pruned and should never
be "trimmed?"
I think "landscapers" who
trim rather than truly prune
don't know how to prune. They
only know how to cut grass and
therefore trim everything else
that grows into a tidy green
shape. The businesses that Milrt
them tell them to "make it
neat." Sounds like something
you would tell your child about
his/her room, but not a goal for
a beautiful crepe myrtle or an
azalea.
If the two banks on
Lakeview that hired, hackers
did business in Raleigh, the city
would fine them for their
efforts to be "neat." In other
cities, Plant Amnesty would
give them free but undesirable
publicity.
Hasn't anyone who hacks or
the businesses who hires hack-
ers ever seen the graceful
spreading crepe myrtle trees
growing to 30-40 feet high with
a profusion of flowers at the
top? They exist all over the
south and are truly memorable
landmarks in any town. In
Southern Mississippi, the gar-


den club ladies, who run tours
of the historic mansion homes,
would try to lynch any crepe
myrtle hackers.
I am a registered landscape
architect and my advice for the
city is to dig out all the rest of
the crepe myrtle trees on
Lakeview as they will be
stressed in a drought, perhaps
dying, have less flowers,
always look misshapen, give
visitors the impression we are
ignorant of basic horticulture
and continue to be made into
hat racks.
Simply, there aren't enough
hats in town for that.

In spite of Social Security,
high cost of medicine, national
debt, President Bush's war and
accidents on U.S. 27, we have a

exhilarating, toe-tapping and

It amazes me to see so many
young people with such talent.

attended, he would have given
them a standing ovation, as the

The program consisted of a
beautiful mixed chorus, chpre-

Light speed is where it's at


I am a college stu-
dent.
More specifically,
I am a male college
student. This scientif-
ic observation means
that I enjoy watching
football, eating pizza
and driving very fast
- light speed, in
fact.
By light speed, I
mean 32 miles per
hour.


Surely, you say, I can't be
serious. I am serious, and stop
calling me Shirley. Light travels
at 186,282 miles per second.
Thirty-two miles per hour is
roughly 2.8 million times slow-
er than the speed of light.
Unless science provides a way
for me to hurl my vehicle down
the highway at 186,282 miles
per second, I will never be able
to drive as fast as I want to.
Recent advancements have
been made in propelling vehi-
cles to the speed of light. I have
been told by sources "in the
know" that vehicles will be able
to travel this fast by the year
3066.
It's a good thing light speed
won't be available for 1,061
years because the speed limit on
U.S. 27 varies between 45 and
65 miles per hour, depending on
which 650-foot section you are
driving in. However, the aver-
age speed is slightly less than
40 miles per hour.
As long as I'm driving in
Highlands County, my dreams.
of getting anywhere in a short
amount of time vanish. Vehicles
move slower here. It could be


the gasoline. Then
again, it could be all
of the traffic lights.
But until I'm proven
otherwise, I'll stick
with the theory that
cars driven in
Highlands County
are equipped with an
18th century speed
control device set at
tortoise instead of
hare.
I can picture the


miniature people (by miniature,
I mean six inches tall) that work
22 hours a day on an assembly
line in some remote portion of
Siberia piecing together the
engines that are eventually
placed in our vehicles.
Based on a seven-character
labeling system the mini-people
must memorize before their
first day of work, they can tell
what nation, state and county
ofte of the engines they assem-
ble will be used in. One of these
codes, made of three letters and
four digits, is SLOOOOW. The
miniatures instantly recognize
this engine as one that will end
up in Highlands County.
After reading the code, the
highly skilled technician,'who
makes 26 cents an hour because
Siberia's labor laws are differ-
ent than America's, sets any
throttle control that starts with
"SL" and ends with "OW" to
tortoise.
(Note: According to the
International Miniature
Autoworkers Union, this partic-
ular combination is given to
engines that will be placed in
vehicles going to central

Emergency vehicles and
those of college males, howev-
er, never have the SLOW com-
bination I just mentioned. You
can imagine the annoyance
these drivers might have when
they want to travel at the speed
limit, or slightly above, and
traffic in all three lanes of U.S.
27 is flowing at a much slower
speed.
I like to think that if I had a
second life, or could Tuff It and
have someone else's job for a
day, I would be a race car driv-
er.
I would get paid millions of
dollars to drive really fast,
make a bunch of left-handed
turns, weave in and out of traf-
fic and spray cheap bottles of
champagne all over people I
don't know. Here's the best
part: I would get paid for this.
Unfortunately, I'm not a race
car driver. Nor do I think I will
ever be a race car driver. In fact,
the closest I've gotten to racing
is covering the 12 Hours of
Sebring for the News-Sun.
I'm a lowly college student
pretending to be a big time pho-
tojournalist. When I'm not on
Interstate 75 driving to or from
Gainesville, I will have to
accept driving slow when I
should be driving fast.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
March 6, 1995: Avon Park
senior Kenny Smith shot a
42 on the front 'nine at
Pinecrest to lead the Devils
to a 16-stroke victory over
DeSoto. Dusty Bagwell and
SBrian Eastham, with 48s,
and Kim Best's 49 meant
the four Red Devils whose
Scores counted all broke
50.
15 Years Ago
March 6, 1990: A grand
slam by pitcher Gabe White
highlighted Sebring's 14-0
rout of visiting DeSoto.
White also racked up nine
strikeouts while facing only
18 batters and allowing two
* hits.

A no-no for Kiko "


Sebring's Vazquez blanks Lehigh m


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING With pieces of Sebring's'
starting nine missing due to illness and
other various problems, Kiko Vazquez did
more than make up for it with a no-hitter
Friday night, striking out 14 Lehigh bat-
ters to propel the Streaks to a 9-0 win over
the Lightning at Firemen's Field.
It was the first Sebring no-hitter since
Bruce Beumel did it in April of 2003
against Lake Placid.
"I try to come out here and pitch and set
a good example," Vazquez said after the
game. "But the defense helped me out a
lot. I knew what was going on (he said
referring to the potential no-hitter), but I
was just trying to stay focused and win the
game."
"(Kiko) hit his spots better than he's
done all year long," Sebring head coach
Hoppy Rewis said. "And we should be
getting to that point. We've had three or
four good pitching performances and
(Lehigh) gave us a lot of extra outs and we


Ii

Missing from the Sebring lineup Friday
were center fielder Justin Tomlinson,
pitcher Rudy Levocz and left fielder
Dusty Campbell.

sickness and I worry that
we'll have more come next
week," Rewis said. "It
seems to be going through
the whole team, so hopeful-
ly it won't but who knows."
"We had a couple kids
out sick but I just tried to
come out here and do my
best," Vazquez said.
Meanwhile, Sebring's
hitters also made a state-


ment to the rest of the district with 10 hits,
including Ryan Williams' perfect 4-for-4
night with a double and two RBIs. The
Lightning were also charged with four
errors.
The Streaks (4-3, 1-0) have now scored
41 runs in their four wins and only six in

Litsch, Panthers pummel Palm



Beach to open conference slate

SFCC ace needs just 106 pitches to wrap up complete-game win


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK If you
squinted hard enough, it was-
n't difficult to imagine the
South Florida Community
College Panthers had Greg
Maddux on the mound for
them Friday night.
*Sophomore right-hander
Jesse Litsch showed the Palm
Beach hitters why he was
named the state pitcher of the
year last season with a very
Maddux-like outing in the
Southern Conference opener,
needing just 106 pitches and a
shade over two hours to wrap


up an 8-1 win at Panther
Field. I
"I felt really good out
there," Litsch said of his
six-hit, seven-strikeout
performance. "I had
good command of my
fastball, curveball, slid-
er, changeup; it was all
working for me today.
"We came out and
swung the bats well and
played good defense,

They gave me four runs in the
third and that's really all we
needed. We coasted from
there."
"He pitched ahead really


from the third inning on,
and when he's like that
he's as tough a competi-
tor as there is with the
ball in his hand," SFCC
head coach Rick Hitt
said of Litsch (3-3).
"I'm glad he's on our
side."
The only blemish on
Litsch's night was a
solo home run yielded


to Kevin Siebert who struck
out the other three times he
faced Litsch in the top of
the third.
"It kind of made me mad,"
Litsch, who was also 2-for-4 at


the plate, said of the homer.
"His first at bat, he didn't see a
fastball away and then he sees
it the next at bat and hits it over
the fence. It's all part of the
game. It's not a big deal."
Litsch then proceeded to
face just one batter over the
minimum for the next five
innings as the Panthers (19-10-
1) jumped on Palm Beach left-
hander Anthony Bradley four
runs in the bottom of the third
on RBI singles from Jimmy
Miles and DeWayne Bailey
and a two-out, two-strike dou-
ble to right by Brad Crone.

Rahal named

Grand Marshal

for 12 Hours
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bobby Rahal
will serve as Grand Marshal for
the 53rd running of the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring March 16-
19 at historic Sebring
International Raceway.
A recent inductee into the
Sebring Sports Car Racing Hall
of Fame, Rahal's motorsports
career covers a wide range of
accomplishments, including
wins at both Sebring and the
Indy 500.
"For me, Sebring was really
the most important victory of
my career, and that is no way a
knock against Indy. It's just that
growing up, Sebring was so
important to our family. My
parents first took me to Sebring
in 1958, and my dad drove
there in 1969, '70 and '71.
Sebring always meant so much
to me, and winning there was
really an emotional experi-
ence."
As a college freshman in
1972, Rahal headed for Sebring
during spring break and volun-
teered to work on a pit crew for
a car co-driven by Milt-Minter.
Just four years later, he made
his 'first Sebring start, driving a
Chevrolet Monza with Jim
Trueman.
In 1982, teamed in a
Chevrolet March with Trueman
and Mauricio DeNarvaez,
Rahal won the pole position
and then drove to a second-
place finish, despite losing
third and fifth gear early in the
Race.
"That was an incredibly
tough race," Rahal said. "We
just kept going and nearly won
it."
In 1986, while practicing in a
new BMW prototype, he expe-
rienced one of the worst ciash-
es of his career. After the rear
bodywork and wing flew off
during qualifying, the car
flipped several times in the air
and was destroyed.
"It just suddenly snapped
loose and then it got real quiet.
Someone said I got about 30
feet in the air. I wasn't hurt,
other than getting a mouthful of
sand," joked Rahal.
Fortunes changed dramati-
cally the following year. Rahal
co-drove a Porsche 962 with
Jochen Mass to victory after a
thrilling duel with Al Holbert's
Porsche, adding his name to the
list of legendary drivers who
have won America's greatest
sports car race.

Robinson (0-2) and reliever
Christopher Rutland.
The aggressive attack left
plenty of breathing room for
Milisci (3-0), who struck out
five and gave up only one hit in
three innings, and Bair, who
was making a scheduled relief
appearance to try and work
himself back into shape from
basketball and a minor shoul-
der injury.
"He just kept battling. I
admire a kid who'll go out
there and battle when he's not
feeling good, and still give you
three innings," Coomes said of
Bair, who allowed four hits and
two runs but struck out three.
"That's all you can ask of a kid,
when had's not feeling good to
still go out there and give you
what he has."
Milisci may have given a lit-
tle too much, Coomes said,
observing that the senior didn't
pace himself like he would if
he wasn't scheduled to pitch
only limited innings. Still, the
coach liked the way Milisci
was able to use his breaking
balls to jam the Sonrise batters.
The senior, who has account-
ed for all but one of the team's
wins on the mound so far, said
Coomes' baseball acumen is
the reason he and the rest of the
Dragons already have half the
team's 2004 win total.
"He's made a'big differ-
ence," said Milisci, a fourth-
year varsity player. "He came
in three years ago and he's
changed the program around."
Coomes. believes improved
morale and camaraderie
amongst the Dragons is the
answer.
"Chemistry makes a big dif-
ference," he said.
Regardless of the root of the
success, the true test Lake
Placid begins with the district
opener Tuesday at home
against Frostproof. Yet Coomes
does not discount the early-sea-
son results.
"We're the smallest team in
Highlands County," he noted.
"When we play a school that
has only 300 or 400 students,
we're only 400 more-than they
are."

6th Annual Car Show Offers Unique Features


SATURDAY, MARCH 12TH,
WELLS DODGE CHRYSLER
IS HOSTING IT'S 6TH
ANNUAL CAR SHOW FROM
9AM 2PM.
AVON PARK-
Six years ago when
Wells Dodge Chrysler
relocated to their new
store on US 27 between
Avon Park and Sebring,
the management team
showcased the new
facility with a car
show. Since that first
year the event has
grown and has featured
several Chrysler
concept cars as well
as the Harry Hyde/
Bobby Isaac winged
Dodge Daytona stock
car. Because of the
annual date, one week
before the 12 Hours of
Sebring, the dealership
has been able to
arrange for these show
cars. Negotiations
with DaimlerChrysler
for a new 2006 Dodge
Charger continues but
has not been finalized
at press time.
One unique exhibit
this year is RC racing
on a clay track. RC,
remote control, racing
is becoming extremely
popular throughout the
nation. Both gas and
electric cars reaching
speeds of 100 miles
per hour compete on
miniature motorcross
tracks with twists,
turns and jumps. Over
30 yards of clay have
been brought in and
turned into an exciting
track and several
central Florida race
teams will be racing
throughout the day.
Included in the
anticipated 100 exhibit
automobiles are several
racecars from various
forms of racing as well
as an "SRT" corral.
SRT is Chrysler's
performance division
and the letters stand
for STREET RACE
TECHNOLOGY.


Check out the SRT-6
super-charged Chrysler
Crossfire, the SRT-4
Dodge Neon, the fastest
car under $21,000, and


the SRT-10 Dodge Ram
with a Viper V10 engine
and transmission.
Door Prizes including
12 Hours of Sebring race
tickets and a "Ride Around
the Race Track" complete
with your professional
driver's commentary, will
be awarded.


Additional entries for
the car show are welcome
and there are NO ENTRY
FEES. Vehicles of all
makes, 1975 or older, are
welcome. Show hours
are 9 to 2 on Saturday,
March 12th, 2005. For

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Tied in knots
What ties your stomach
in knots? That question
transported me back to a
time when I had experi-
enced that unwelcome feel-
ing.
Shock waves had washed
over me as the reality sunk
in that my marriage was
over. The unbelievable,
unexpected breech of trust
had left me confused, bro-
ken and uncertain about the
future. Worst of all, my
innocent baby boy would be
part of this trauma.
The close cousins of guilt
and shame clung tenacious-
ly to my fragile self-esteem.
How could I face my par-
ents and tell them that my
marriage had failed?
My stomach was tied in
knots. Would it ever relax
again?
Life often confronts us
with unexpected and stom-
ach-gnarling experiences;
sickness, death, financial
distress, loss of a job.
But we also naturally
react when a loved one
faces a traumatic situation.
Our stomachs twist with
their pain. Such is how my
parents felt the day I made
my unhappy announcement.
Worry for their young
daughter and grandson sure-
ly had its place, but I see
now it was more. It was
compassion.
"Jesus had compassion
on them and healed their
,sick." (Matthew 14: 14,
NIV)
I have learned that the
depth of the word "compas-
sion" actually denotes one's
stomach being tied in knots.
When Jesus looked at the
multitudes of people who
had brought their sick to
. him, his stomach was liter-
ally tied in knots. He physi-
cally ached with and for
those in need.
Such a down-to-earth
explanation of compassion
gives us a more intimate
sense of the deep' way our
Savior cares. We can identi-
fy with a knotted stomach.
It makes sense to us.
No wonder I found com-
fort and relief by leaning on
the Lord. He knew just how
I was feeling and felt it with'
me.
I can only imagine how
our Lord, who is personally
acquainted with grief and
suffering, must ache for the
agony of the survivors and
lost of the tsunami disaster.
Not a sparrow falls without
his notice.
In my personal turmoil, I
discovered that as I centered
my faith in God, hope for
the future returned. I real-
ized how much he loved me
and, in spite of failure, still
had a plan for my life. No
matter that trust with anoth-
er person had been broken,
God was trustworthy. Little
by little, my stomach
unknotted, tension eased
and rest returned.
So when our stomachs
are in knots over personal
circumstances or world situ-
ations like the tsunami, we
can concentrate on compas-
sion not fear and be
moved to healing actions
and ultimate rest. Selah.

just finished a five-week Artist in Residence at
Hardee County Association for Retarded
Citizens that brought smiles to everyone's
faces.
"Some had a smile on their face all the
time," said Hardee ARC Director Mike
McCoy. "It was incredible. They got to try var-
ious instruments. Fred (Leavitt) encouraged
them to try new things."
Leavitt, founder, manager and, player with

students Betty McCarthy and
Chris McConnell will be fea-
tured in an exhibit called,
"Master Copies by Betty
McCarthy and Chris
McConnell," at SFCC's
Learning Resources Center
now through the end of March.
"No two artists work alike,
and that's the beauty of watch-
ing these two," said Cathy
Futral, SFCC professor of art.
"They're two different person-
alities, using different tech-
niques."
Both students are enrolled in
the independent study course,
"Media Exploration," in which
they set their own goals at the
beginning of the semester.
According to Futral, "The goal
is to create a body of work
based on various painters from
whom they can learn, to go
beyond the appreciation level
and expand their technical abil-
ities. They copy a work of art,
mimicking the style and
approach and, in many cases,
it's the same size as the origi-
nal."
McCarthy has been a profes-
sional photographer since 1964
and dabbled in painting
throughout the years. "When I
went into photography, I really
wanted to go into art," she said.
"I really liked art, but I didn't
think I could make any money
with it." .
For Futral's class, McCarthy
chose to reproduce works by

more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
"Why am I sane-?" asked Gloria as she
looks back on her family upbringing.
She shakes her head over the many
pretzel-like loops she's traveled to get
where she is today.
"I'll never forget when I found out I
was adopted a bomb my grandmother
dropped in my lap the week before my
wedding. Everyone knew about it but
me."
Still, Gloria had to pry the truth from
reluctant sources.
Then she recalls the unconventional
way she met her mate, Gene; he a shoe
salesman, she a model searching for
shoes.


The clerks eyed her
as she came through
the door one saying,
"I bet you can't get a
date with her."
"I bet I can," Gene
said.
Gene strode over to -
help her with her shoe '
selection, charming
her with his "gift of
gab." Before she knew mphic y: FREo KO
it, she had accepted his invitation for a
date.
After a whirlwind few weeks, he
popped the question. Surprising herself,
she said, "Yes!"
Not much of a courtship. Yet, from the
start, Gene helped her process the new
things being revealed about her family -
which sometime later, even included an
unknown brother.
The circuitous route continued in mar-
riage as Gene's creativity and desire to
try new things influenced their direction.
Thankfully, Gloria was at ease with this,
trusting this husband who was so open -
a vivid contrast to her family's tight-
lipped evasiveness that prevented lives
from being mended.
Gene helped Gloria not to sweat the
small stuff and take the challenges of life
in stride. They had fun together, letting
laughter bring healing. Gene's gregari-
ous personality drew out the quieter

Gloria. Three children
were born and life
moved along.
Both had religious
beliefs, but disagreed
on how to express
their faith in God.
Gloria's practice was
liturgical and reflected
her formal upbringing.
Gene's faith was
relaxed, like his home


life. Interestingly, an unexpected turn in
the road led to the off-ramp that would
give them access to a mutual faith.
Itching for a change, Gene accepted a
sales position in a foreign country with
Gloria's approval. Once settled, his fam-
ily would follow.
It didn't take long to discover that the
plan was not working out as expected.
Gene gave up the job and flew home.
But, God was directing their paths.
With the promise of a new job, they
headed for Florida where he would put
to use his gifts of music and talk at a
radio station.
They found a church where they
learned that their faith was not just a reli-
gious experience, but a relationship with
God through Jesus Christ. On that foun-
dation, they began to rebuild their lives
together.
"That's where we found God," Gloria
and Gene agreed.


Warm-up time
If you had a short courtship a" j

iell before marriage, a learnit

And so, she asked, "Why am I sane'"
"It's because of faith in God, laughter,
love and transparency in my relations'
with Gene. No secrets."
They know the joy of accepting each
other and whatever life brings their way.

ARTS & LEISURE


Rediscover the past during Florida Heritage Month


We often think that
our local news is of .
no interest to anyone
outside of our area,
but in our shrinking
world, local news
stories can travel far
and wide.
Take the example
of the Fort Basinger
schoolhouse, built in LIBRAR'
Highlands County in -
the early 1900s. It Can
came to the attention Hess
of the South Florida -"
Water Management
District and Florida's Division
of Historical Resources.
While some might think the
old clapboard building was just
another abandoned shell, those'
who understand the importance
of preserving history knew oth-
erwise. The schoolhouse* was
relocated to the nearby Edna
Pearce Lockett Estate where it
will eventually be restored.
While this was interesting
local news, I didn't realize that
the editors of Florida Monthly
magazine would also want to
feature it, with pictures of mov-
ing day, courtesy of SFWMD.
You'll enjoy "School Days
Along the Kissimmee" in the


v LINES
olyn
elink


February edition of
Florida Monthly.
You can learn more
about the building's
new site from the
Sebring Historical
Society. It recently
received a number of
documents on Edna
Pearce Lockett,
which it is still pro-
cessing.
Another surprise
in the February edi-
tion is "Florida's
Historic Firehouses"


with numerous photos. While
Jacksonville and Tampa had
volunteer fire departments as
early as the 1860s, Miami did-
n't organize until 1899.
The state's Division of
Historical Resources has a
Florida Master .Site File that
lists 58 historic firehouses.
Three firehouses, including the
1930s Coral Gables police and
fire station, are included in the
National Register of Historic
Places. According to the article,
the firehouse in Sebring is eligi-
ble for this registry.
The Lakeland firehouse is
also in the historic site file, but
guess where Floridp's oldest


firehouse is located? In Bartow!
The historic Sebring fire sta-
tion is at the corner of Lemon
and Mango streets, a block off
of North Ridgewood Drive.
For those of you who enjoy
day trips, check out Florida
Monthly's article on "Exploring
Hendry County History." It
spotlights The Clewiston
Museum, the Labelle Heritage
Museum, and the Captain
Francis A. Hendry House in
Labelle.
In the section titled
"Romantic Dining," the Central
Florida section features two
Sebring restaurants the
Candlelight Restaurant and
Lounge and the Twin Oaks Tea
Room. Since Florida strawber-
ries are still in season, you'll
probably want to treat yourself
to a strawberry dessert.
Plant City calls itself the win-
ter strawberry capital of the
world, and Florida Monthly is
happy to further its reputation
by featuring a strawberry and
peach cobbler recipe, plus one
called "stuffed strawberries
with homemade vanilla whip
cream."
Florida's historical places
and pioneers will be highlighted


March 15 through April 15 dur-
ing the second annual Florida
Heritage Month. The theme
this year is "A Celebration of
Florida's Spirit."
This is a great time to visit
the Historical Societies of Avon
Park, Lake Placid, and Sebring.
Or, if you'd rather read at home,
visit your libraries and browse
for titles on the Sebring
International Raceway, historic
homes, and the history of our
county.
The Sebring display cases
will feature raceway memora-
bilia during March, thanks to
racing fan Ron Johnson.
Whether you're interested in
the church history, the civic his-
tory, or the agricultural history
of our state, there's information
and some surprising facts to be
discovered during Florida
Heritage Month.

Carolyn Hesselink is the admin-
istrative secretary of the
Highlands County Library
System. Library cards are
always free. For information,

Jokaroha performing praise and


worship music at 'Music in the Park'


On Saturday, the
Friends of Highlands
Hammock State Park
will host another
"Music in the Park"
concert.
Jokaroha will be
the featured per-
former. It plays con-
temporary Christian
praise. and worship
music.
The group's
unusual name was


REAL Fl

Dorothy
n


formed from the first
two letters, of each band mem-
ber's name. Jordan Terrell and
Katie Havery, both, 15, sing and
play keyboard, bass and guitar.
The drummer is 13-year-old
Rodney Havery.
Harry Havery, father of Katie
and Rodney, plays the guitar
and sings.
While their young ages may
lead you to believe otherwise,
each of these students has much
experience in performing.
Jordan and Katie are both
freshmen at Sebring High
School and are involved in the
music ministry at Bible
Fellowship Church and the high
school chorus program. They
have also performed for Youth
for Christ's Campus Life pro-
gram.
Rodney, a seventh grader at
Sebring Middle School, is the


youngest of the
group. He is in his
school's band and is
the drummer for
Bible Fellowship
Church's Praise
Team. He is active in
sports, like his older
sister Katie, who
competes on the high
LORIDA school track. and
swim teams.
Harris Harry, -the self-
described mature
member of the group,
is well known in our area for his
musical talent. He has per-
formed at the park before as
part of the California Toe Jam
Band. He is currently the.music
'director at Bible Fellowship
Church and certainly seems to
have passed his musical talent
onto his children. Even the
youngest member of his family,
9-year-old Harrison, is studying
the piano.
Harry and wife, Dawn,
helped form the group in
September 2001. Originally
named the Polekatz, its first
performance was at the "See
You At the Pole" youth rally at
Sebring Middle School.
The band has come a. long
way in just a few short years,
changing its instrumentation
and its name. It currently play
weekly for Bible Fellowship's


~A4dadM~ C*,~t


Youth Program, Campus Life
and various community-orient-
ed events around the holidays.
Bitt don't think this music is
just for the teens. While the
music will be contemporary in
nature, with a nice mix of up-
tempo praise-type songs, they
will also perform gentler; wor-
ship-type songs.
Says Harry, "What a beauti-
ful place the hammock will be
to sing to our Creator. After all,
we'll be surrounded by his glo-
rious creation!"
I couldn't have said it better
myself. So plan on bringing
your teens, preteens and ele-
mentary-aged children to expe-
rience music with its timeless
message. It will especially be
fun for the younger ones to see
that the performers on stage
might just be kids they already
know from school, sports, or
other activities. ,
Bring your lawn chairs or
blankets, a flashlight, and
maybe a jacket, since the last
few concerts have had chilly
weather.
You can purchase dinner,
snacks and drinks at the
Hammock Inn, or bring your
own picnic, basket.

Planning and planting your Florida yard


Classified ads get results


Many of Florida's resources
are particularly susceptible to
pollution because of the state's
unique geology and climate.
Floridians obtain most of their
drinking water from the ground.
Ground water supplies often
lie near the surface and are cov-
ered by porous limestone and
sandy soils that allow water to
infiltrate rapidly.
Dissolved chemical reach
ground water through a process
called leaching. These impuri-
ties affect the quality of our
drinking water.

Creating your Florida
yard
A Florida yard is an approach
that recognize that the home
landscape is part of a larger nat-
ural system. Creating a Florida
yard does not necessarily mean
creating a "wild" looking yard,
but it does mean creating a,
landscape that is more of an
asset to nature than a liability.
If installed and maintained
properly; a Florida yard will be
attractive, environmentally sus-


tainable, and protect
natural resources.
Whether you are
designing on a shoe-
string budget or hir-
ing a professional
landscape architect,
understanding a few
basic concepts can
help you make envi-
ronmentally appro-
priate decisions and
avoid trouble later.

Plan first, plant
last
The secret to being
satisfied with your

landscape design is to follow a
logical planning process.
Follow the steps outlined below
to develop your own landscape
plan.
1. Decide why you want to
landscape. Appropriate land-
scaping protects the environ-
ment by stabilizing the soil,
preventing erosion, filtering
pollutants and reducing harmful .
runoff. Environmental protec-
tion should be considered dur-


ing each step of the
landscaping process.
2. Determine
how you will use
your property.
Perhaps you need a
play are for children,
or like to give out
door parties. Maybe
you want to have a
vegetable garden or
enjoy a waterfront
view. Maybe you don't
want to spend much
time in your yard; you
just want to enjoy
looking at it without
time consuming or


costly maintenance.
3. Analyze the existing site
and consider your limitations.
Take a walk around your prop-
erty and make note of any spe-
cial conditions that make your
yard unique.
Does your site require plants
that tolerant of cold, wind, full
sun, shade, drought, occasional
flooding, or salt spray? Do you
know your soil's pH? Have a
soil sample tested at the coun-


ty's extension office,4509
George Blvd. in Sebring.
Observe landscaping features
of surrounding properties, like
shade trees that cast a shadow
on your yard. This is a good
time to find out if a neighbor
will share property lines to
enhance planting for privacy or
wildlife.
4. Prepare a land-use plan.
Draw your house, and the
location of existing trees and
shrubbery to be retained.
Include septic tank, under-
ground utilities, sprinkler sys-
tems. Sketch where various
activities will take place. Is
there a vista you want to
enhance with plants that attract
birds or butterflies?
Part three will continue next
week.

Donna Dewberry coming for charity luncheon


News-Sun
SEBRING Donna
Dewberry, the creator of the
one-stroke method of painting,
will appear at a charity lunch-
eon for the Maria Dewberry
Children's Foundation at 1 p.m.
Saturday, April 16, at the
Quality Inn and Suites
Conference Center.
The fund-raiser is being
sponsored by Nana's F'prizes,
the booth owned by certified
one-stroke painting instructor
Judy Nicewicz at the Alligator
Antique Mall.
Tickets are available for $25
each. They can be purchased
from Nicewicz at the mall or by
calling her at 273-1339.
Dewberry will give a demon-


WANT TO Go?
What: Maria Dewberry Children's Foundation charity luncheon with
guest Donna Dewberry
When: 1 p.m. Saturday, April 16
Where: Quality Inn and Suites Conference Center in Sebring
Sponsored by: Nana's F'prizes in Sebring's Alligator Mall
Ticket.Information: Cost is $25 per person. Purchase tickets at
Nana's F'prises in Sebring's Alligator Mall or by call Judy Nicewicz
at 273-1339 ,


station. Door prizes will be
awarded, and a silent auction
will be held.
Usually, Dewberry attends
the annual B.E.E. Painting and
Crafting Expo in Orlando held
in July in Orlando. Nicewicz
said she wanted to bring the


popular artist to Sebring for
those who couldn't attend, the
Orlando exhibit.
Maria Dewberry was the
daughter of Donna Dewberry
and her husband, Marc. When
she passed away in May 2002 at
the age of 22, they started the


Maria Dewberry Children's
Foundation to honor her memo-
ry and her love of children.
Among its accomplishments,
the foundation has donated
$1,500 so that a preschool class
could make its own butterfly
garden, and given $500 to the
city of Winter Park for its youth
summer camp. It helped the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints stage a Christmas
* carnival for 75 underprivileged
children, and has taught paint-
ing classes for children.
For information about the
charity, visit the Web site at
http://www.mdchildrensfounda-
tion.org. For details about one-
stroke painting, visit

Continued from 1C
was really dark. Because I have
trouble with my colors, I can
cover up my mistakes easier
using oils. When I mix colors, I
have to go with stronger colors
than someone else might. I'd'
have trouble painting a pastel-
type painting."
McCarthy said that painting
skin tones are particularly diffi-
cult for her. "Cathy (Futral)
may say, 'There's too much
green under the eyes,' so I have
to adjust it and ask her again. If
I do a shadow, I only see the
light and dark. I don't see three
shades, so I have to work at it. I
have to achieve it by whatever
means I can. It's a challenge,
and it's fun."
McConnell was an oncolo-


gist for 24 years and pursued
music after his retirement in
2000. "I wanted to be a musi-
cian all my life," he said. "I
took music classes and guitar
classes, but I found that I was
tone deaf. So I came over to the
SFCC Art Department. I'd
never painted anything until I
got here."
"When Chris draws on can-
vas, he never uses any grids,"
Futral said. "He senses the
space."
McConnell's artist talent
may be in the blood. His father
taught art at what is now St.
Petersburg College and his
mother taught art in the local
school system.
"Drawing and charcoals are
my best but I want to learn
painting," he said. "I set out to
do four reproductions of master
works, to study the technique.


The paintings that I'm repro-
ducing were done in oil, but I
wanted to reproduce them in
acrylics to learn about both
media. All the paintings are in
the original size."
McConnell created four
copies of master works. by
Vincent Van Gogh; Edward
Hopper; N.C. Wythe, the father
of Andrew Wythe; and Jean-
Honor6 Fragonard, a French
Rococo-Era painter. "I tried to
pick more difficult paintings as
I went along and picked differ-
ent styles and -from different
periods. If you choose only four
Picassos, you learn about
(Pablo) Picasso. But I wanted to
learn about colors ,and color
mixture. In preparation, I did a
lot of study in color and color
matching."

SThe Imprint Of

The Creator


-UVHRS- Many thinkers, both secular and
GOD religious, have remarked upon the
fact that the belief in God (or gods)
and in some kind of afterlife, seems
to be present in virtually every
culture known to us, both past and
present. Secular thinkers, like Freud,
consider these religious ideas to be a
kind of universal illusion. But,
religious thinkers have always been
more inclined to see this as a kind of imprint of the Creator
upon the creature; the brushstrokes of the divine artist, if
not his signature. Indeed, it would be a cruel cosmic joke
theory if the idea of eternity were implanted,in us but
signified nothing more than an illusion. Fortunately, the
cruel cosmic joke theory has a serious logical flaw.That is,
if there is a cosmic joke being played on us, there must be
someone playing the joke, and the existence of a cosmic
prankster effectively negates the idea that God (or eternity)
is illusory. We are made in God's image, and we see this
both in the idea of eternity within us, and also m our acts
of loving kindness.

He has made everything beautiful in its time; also He has'
put eternity into man's mind, yet so that he cannot find
out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

"They were very accepting of
the program," McCoy said of
his clients. "Some danced and
some played the instruments."
Leavitt offered various
drums and instruments to shake
such as maracas and tam-
bourines. .. .
- McCoy pointed out that the
program even benefited those
individuals he serves who are
hearing impaired. "They can
feel the vibrations."
McCoy was impressed with
how his clients stayed on task.
"They were enthusiastic, no
doubt," he said. "They were"
constantly with it from the time


the activity started to the end."
The transition from the first
session to the last was unbeliev-
able McCoy said. At fir t, his
clients would nof stop beating
.on the drums when Leavitt
instructed them to stop. At the
last session, McCoy noticed
they learned rhythm, how to
drum softer and louder and
most importantly followed
instructions from the leader.
The program was funded by
a VSA grant. VSA arts is an
international organization that
promotes the creative power in
people with disabilities. VSA
Arts of Florida is an affiliate
headquartered at the University
of South Florida.
Leavitt, who now lives in
Sebring, introduced his pro-


gram that uses percussion
instruments to bring the joy ol
making music to people with
disabilities last year for the pro-
foundly handicapped at
Wauchula Elementary School.
The program offers a natural
and fun way for the participants
to learn how to play a musical
instrument. They learn to count
and structure rhN hins, start and
Itop together, music dynamics
and word games.
"The program has proven to
be effective in teaching a broad
range of mental disabilities,
including Alzheimer's and
dementia, while lifting the spir-
it of participants," Leavitt said.
The Primal Connection is an
ethnically diverse, world
