SEBRING An industrial
accident claimed a life
Tuesday afternoon at Park
Place Truss Inc.
As crane operator LaMar
Drake and his brother,
Willard Drake, both of
Sebring, were adjusting
cables around 4:30 p.m. they
didn't have the outriggers
deployed on the 30-ton crane.
Willard was the hooker for
the crane.
When they moved the
boom of the crane, the vehi-
cle tipped over on its left side.
pinning Willard Drake under-
neath. He died at the scene.
There were strong winds at
the time, which may have
been a factor in the accident.
Neighbors gathered along
Avocado Street in the waning
sunlight watching Sebring
police officers and firefight-
ers work alongside Highlands
County Emergency Medical
Service personnel in getting

The crews worked deliber-
ately as they investigated the
scene. Police detectives took
pictures from all angles,
including many shots of the
apparently fully-extended
boom, which now lays along
the ground.
At least a couple of the
onlookers said they had heard
the large bang when the
green, 10-wheeled crane went
over on its side but nobody
had seen exactly how the
accident occurred.
Reportedly, the workers
had been setting up the crane
,in preparation to move a
number of trusses today.
The company apparently
had just purchased the 30-ton
vehicle, which had arrived
from Chicago several weeks
ago.
It was the first serious acci-
dent to have occurred at the
company, which has been in

SEBRING Now that
county commissioners have
cleared the way to the ballot
box, the School Board of
Highlands County prepares to
launch a campaign in favor of a
1/2 cent increase in the sales
tax.
A vote on the referendum has
been set for Tuesday, May 10.
Don Bemis, former superin-
tendent of schools for the state
of Michigan and now a consult-
ant with A.G. Morgan, has been
advising the board pro bono.
He said the campaign would
have two parts.
"I would hope there will be
two kinds of campaigns." he
said. "One of information,
which will be the responsibility
of the school board, district and
schools, and which will let peo-
ple know what the problems
are, and how this tax can solve
.those problems.
"And an advocacy campaign
supporting passage, which
should be conducted by people
and groups outside the schools.
Bemis said it's important to
concentrate on grass roots
efforts by helping interested
people to organize themselves
appropriately. People need to be
registered to vote, and then
encouraged to turn out at the


polls.
"Obviously, the only reason'
you engage in this kind of cam-
paign is to win," he continued.
"But some Florida counties
have let this problem of popula-
tion movement and growth g"
out of hand. You are not in th~a
position here in Highland'
County, the school board andj
authorities have done a good
job of keeping up, but now i.s
the time to get ahead of thd
curve, which is the reason forI
the Tax."
The Board is facing short a
long term challenges. In
short run, should the class s
amendment remain in the fo
passed by voters in-2002, class
rooms will have to be built tod
replace the 127 portables cur-,
rently in use, and more added to'
maintain standards.
However, as Bemis pointed
out,. Highlands County is well
positioned.
"Lowered class size has been'
a focus of the board for many
years," board member Wendy1
Renfro said recently. "We have
always tried to keep the classes
as small as possible."
For that reason, the district is
already in compliance with the
looser requirements recently
proposed by Governor Jeb.

averages instead of hard, indi-
vidual figures. And even then,

Race shifts

traffic flow
SEBRING For the
purpose of traffic flow and
safety during Race Week,
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office will be
closing all of the streets
intersecting with Madrid,
which is the western edge
of the Spring Lake commu-
nity.
These roadways are
Cozumel, Hampshire,
Monserrat, Cortex, Castile
and South Access Road.
The closures will take
place starting Monday and
will go through Monday,
March 21. These closures
will help to eliminate
through traffic into and out
of the SpringLake neigh-
borhood, Sheriff Susan
Benton said.
From 7 a.m. to noon
Saturday, March 19, the
traffic will be one-way on
Madrid leading into the
raceway from U.S. 98.
There will be no changes
to Airport Road traffic
flow, therefore, it is recom-
mended to the businesses
in the area of the
airport/raceway to use
Airport Road for transit
needs.
If there are any ques-
tions, call Capt. Mark
Schrader or Capt. Booker
Johnson at the sheriff's
office, 402-7200.

'Conversation'
SEBRING Highlands
County Commissioner
Barbara Stewart will have
.-'her inaugural "Coffee and
Conversation" session at
7:30 a.m. today.
It will be held at the
Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce offices on Main
Street. In addition to talk-
ing about some of the com-
mission's upcoming proj-
ects and hearing concerns
from her constituents,
Stewart said she would
have a special guest speak-
er.
"I'm asking Mike
Eisenhart of Keep
Highlands County
Beautiful to come along
and talk about illegal
dumping," she said. "It
really is getting to be quite
a problem."
Stewart also wants to
use the opportunity to help
citizen initiatives in con-
nection with the upcoming
Great American Clean-up.
"If people are interested
in organizing activities, we
can help them with it," she
said.
Stewart was elected to
District 1 in November,
taking the seat vacated by
former Highlands County
Commissioner David
Flowers.


Cox takes his act out on the road


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Wally Cox,
school superintendent, faces a
daunting challenge: Selling the
Heartland on the need for an
additional half cent sales tax to
fund older school upgrades and
new school construction.
Monday night, encouraged
by a friendly audience at the
monthly District School
Advisory Council meeting, he
rehearsed his presentation.
"I've never been timed," he
said to laughter, as he began.
"Civic groups usually give me
about 15 or 20 minutes to talk,
and 'I want to leave time for
questioning."
What did he have to say?
School enrollment in
Highlands County is soaring.
Classrooms at every grade
level are crowded, and all avail-

Junior Idol

rescheduled

for March 31
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The cold and
wet weather of last Thursday
evening has postponed the
finale for the Junior Idol com-
petition.
Because of the ensuing
activities it will be a couple
weeks before the Junior Idol
and Teen Idol candidates get
their chance in the spotlight.
"Well, we were going to do it
this Thursday night, but this is
the week they give the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
tests at the schools," organizer
Diana Hirsch said. "Then next
week are the races and the
week after that is Spring Break
and a lot of kids are going out
of town."
The new operative date will
be March 31.
Hirsch said that postponing
the event for nearly a month
has proved to be a bit stressful
for the young competitors.
"Some of. the kids com-
plained that their nerves won't
carry them but I told them it
would give them a lot more
time to practice," she said.
Staged by the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association there
will be 19 hopefuls looking for
cash and prizes.
The finals will be run in very
much the same format as the
Heartland Idol contest, with
judges narrowing the 10 final-
ists to five and then from five to
the top one in each division. ,
There are two age categories,
those aged 13-17 and those 12
years old and younger.
The first prize will be a $200
savings bond. The junior divi-
sion winner also will receive a
$200 gift certificate from Wal-
Mart while the .teen idol will
get a $200 gift card from
Lakeshore Mall.
Hirsch said the shorter time
frame has made administration
of the junior contest a bit more
difficult. '
"This has been tough," said
Hirsch. "With the Idol we had
four try outs, with the Junior
Idol we only had two sessions."
Those wanting additional
information can call Hirsch at-
386-4417.


able space is in use.
That includes 127 portables,
80 of which have been added in
the last two years.
Assuming a two percent
yearly growth rate (last year the
rate was 3 1/2 percent), the cur-
rent student population of about
12,000 will almost double, to
more than 21,000, in the next
20 years.
At the same time, funding
streams are drying up, or being
redirected. For example, the
county has maxed out its certifi-
cates of participation, and is
having to spend $400,000 a
year to lease portable class-
rooms.
The problem is exacerbated
because the state is no longer
helping off-set capital construc-
tion costs with Public
Education Capital Outlay
funds, and has sharply cut back


its contributions towards class
size amendment costs. For
example, in 2003-04, the state
provided more than $2 million
for construction of new class-
rooms needed as a result of the
amendment, but this year has
only allocated $392,888.
In order to raise needed
funds, the school board only
had three options from which to.
choose, and two of them a
property tax bond issue and
impact fees would not raise
the amount of money needed.
This left the sales tax as the
only additional revenue choice.
It has been placed on the bal-
lot for a vote on Tuesday, May
10.
The money collected will be
used to remodel and upgrade
every school. The improve-
ments will include computers
and network/server systems, as


well as desks, chairs, reference
materials, band equipment, ath-
letic equipment, and vocational
equipment.
Seven new schools will also
be built: five elementary
schools, one middle school and
one high school.
The tax will be collected for
20 years, starting Jan. 1, 2006.
It is projected to raise $159 mil-
lion over 20 years.
The sales tax would only be
applied to those items currently
taxed, with a maximum of $25 a
purchase.
Including Highlands County,
58 of Florida's 67 counties- are
collecting additional sales sur-
taxes.
Cox is out to warn people of
what would happen if the tax
request fails.
All current projects would be


in jeopardy. The children's
learning environment would
deteriorate as schools became
more and more overcrowded.
Schools made up of only porta-
bles could be possible, also
double sessions or year-round
school.
Certainly, there would be a
reduction or elimination of
after-school programs and
extra-curricular activities, and
schools would be harder to
maintain as a result of over use.
The district would also fall
behind in technology education.
While Cox sounds a warning,
he is also optimistic. He is
counting on Heartland residents
to know how important it is to
provide "the youth of our coun-
ty a springboard to higher edu-
cation and productive careers
and good citizenship."

'It was scary,' remarked Austin Barnes, of New York, after the motor home he was driving smashed into an illegally parked tractor
trailer Friday afternoon in Avon Park. According to Barnes, he was traveling north on U.S. 27 in the right lane next to a truck in the
left lane and was unable to avoid hitting a large delivery truck parked near the roadway and the Olympic Restaurant. Barnes and
his cat Nightmare were heading back home to Syracuse when the incident occurred. Avon Park Police Officer J. Molina said a cita-
tion has been issued to the driver of the semitrailer, Mark Bast of Seffner, for improper parking. He reportedly was making a deliv-
ery to the Olympic Restaurant when the incident occurred.



Growth forces county to contract out survey


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Growth in
Highlands County has forced
county departments to contract
out some survey work.
County commissioners have
approved an agreement with
Chastain-Skillman Inc. to per-
form survey work on an as-
needed basis in the county. The
funds cannot exceed $25,000
for the year, will come out of
the established projects budget
and will not run more than
$3,000 per location.
With residential development
in the county and the county
engineering department survey
crew being tied up by. the
Airport Road improvement
project, the county needs help,
said County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete. Right now, his
department has one survey crew
- two field people doing


construction staking, with about
half of the time spent in the
office downloading information
into the computer systems. At
the same time, however, the
county has to perform driveway
inspections and other small
projects that need surveying
work.
The agreement with
Chastain-Skillman will allow
the county to finish major road
projects with in-house staff
while still meeting the needs for
smaller residential and com-
mercial construction work.
"I use it as a stop-gap for fast
surveys and fast engineering,"
Gavarrete said.
Curb work for the Airport
Road expansion will be done
this week, if it hasn't been com-
pleted already, Gavarrete said.
That should free up his survey
crew fairly soon.
Gavarrete said the county has


had applications for as many as parks and recreation depart-
30 or 40 to 100 driveway per- ment, \and facilities mainte-
mits each month, all of which nance -for survey work.-
need surveying and inspection The agreement will allow
work. He also has requests from any of these departments to
various county departments submit a purchase order for the
road and bridge department, work.

Hatchett

charged with

stealing tire

trailer
SEBRING At 1:13 p.m.,
Jan. 30, 2005, an employee of
Yarborough Tire & Service
drove by the business and
noticed a trailer full of used.
tires was missing. He called
the owner who called the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
While a deputy was taking
the initial report, he received
a call about a suspicious truck
pulling a trailer full of used
tires stuck in a ditch near
Peugeot Street and Porsche
Avenue. A caller had told dis-
patch that he tried to help the
driver and passenger free the
vehicle, but couldn't, so. he
gave the two a ride to Wal-
Mart in Sebring so they could
use the telephone.
A second deputy found the


1990 GMC Sierra pickup and
trailer and traced it to its.
owner, who said he'd lent it to
his girlfriend's son Justin
Dewayne Hatchett, 20, of
Avon Park at 7 a.m. that
day.
He had gotten a call from
Hatchett between 11-11:30
a.m. that his truck had been
stolen while they were at Wal-
Mart.
Then, a third deputy found
Hatchett walking down the
side of U.S. 27. He had an
active warrant, so deputies
arrested him. The next after-
noon, they asked him about
the truck. He said he bor-
rowed it on Jan. 30, and then
he and a friend stopped at
Yarborough Tire to look at
used tires on the tire rack for
the truck.
Allegedly, the friend sug-
gested and repeated that they
take the trailer. Hatchett said
even though he ignored the
statements, he finally com-
plied. Once the trailer was

Sebring chamber peeks



inside the raceway


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring
Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers were treated to an inside
look at Race Week Tuesday
morning, when Brad Kettler,
technical director for Champion
Racing, was guest speaker at
the monthly breakfast.
Kettler, who directs the Audi
race team, which has two cars
entered in thisyear's contest,
says that international racers
view the Sebring race as essen-
tial, especially when tuning up
fpor the grand daddy of all races,
the Les Mans in France.
- Kettler's race team usually
spends up to 225 days on the
road, preparing for and running
in races all over the world.
Home based in Pompano
Beach, the team has a core crew
of 16 technicians, but swells to
about 50 at the height of a race.
Those people all have to be
fed, so the company hires a
caterer who works out of a
mobile site at the track.
So far, the Audi team has put
12,000 kilometers on their cars
during eight days of testing the


track, which is infamous around
the world.
"We used to dread the day
we'd come down and be eaten
up by the track," Kettler said
with a rueful smile. "But now
we kind of enjoy it, and take it
for what it is. It tests you for
sure. To do well you have to be
brutally honest with yourself,
because it can beat your car to
pieces. That's partly the nature
of the old runway, and what
gives it its character.
"But you're going to learn
something new about (your car)
too. That's why the Europeans
hold it in such high regard, and
why it's such an important part
of their calendar.
"So we've gone from
loathing the track to enjoying
watching the newcomers try to
master it. After 50 or 100 laps,
they realize they're not quite in
the shape they thought they
were in. It's kind of good to see
that," he said with a wide smile.
Kettler has a $6 million
annual operating budget, which
does not cover, the cost of new
automobiles.
The logistics of a race are


mind boggling. In addition .to
the increased crew size, there
are the machines, tools and gear
to move. For Sebring, Audi will
have hauled more than 100,000
pounds of equipment in three or
four trucks.
Kettler was full of praise for
the Sebring race fan. As the
chamber applauded, he allowed
as how "the Sebring crowds are
the biggest, the most highly ani-
mated crowds I've ever seen.
There's a great air of participa-
tion. I've seen some pretty
amazing things in 20 years."
He contrasted the Sebring
crowds to those of Les Mans,
which, as a 24-hour race wears
people out to the frayed edge of
civility.
He told how the crew they
had to be sure every last tool
was locked up in the garage
before the Les Mans ended,
because the fans were then
allowed to sweep through the
paddock area, and they robbed
the place blind.
He was grateful that was not
the case in Sebring.

Commissioners balk at



offer from SWFWMD
IT


B Hillard: Triumph of politics
over science
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County commission-
ers simply do not want to change water districts
if they have to live with the same water use
restrictions.
On Tuesday, they voted to boot the draft agree-
ment between the county and the two water man-
agement districts. However, they will keep nego-
tiating for better terms.
Commissioner Bob Bullard was astounded,
but.not surprised that the draft agreement with the
Southwest Florida Water Management District
would keep the county under the Southern Water
Use Caution Area rules by having the South
Florida Water Management District adopt similar
rules.
"They knew we wouldn't (agree) when they
submitted this," he said. "They expect we will
accept this because of politics."
Both Commissioners Guy Maxcy and Edgar
Stokes thought the process had gotten far too
political.
"If we get out of the district, (SFWMD) won't
ruin the water resources," Stokes said. "This isn't
what we asked for or what we wanted."
There is no guarantee that if the county and
water districts agree on a memorandum of under-
standing that Governor Jeb Bush will approve it.
Without that, local. legislators won't want to,
waste their time introducing a bill to move the
county from one district to the other.
, Instead, county commissioners voted to work
on a better agreement with the water districts, ask
legislators to withdraw bills asking for the move,


and wait for the next election.
"Hopefully, we will get it when we get a new
'governor," Bullard said.
Steve Fruit, a Realtor from Lake Placid,
remarked after the workshop that even though
citrus growers and the county have fought for the
change, "development has a dog in this fight."
Part of the concern is cost or delays to get project
permits approved by both water districts.
Present citrus growers have water use permits
and won't be likely to plant new groves, said Ray
Royce, executive director of the Highlands
County Citrus Growers Association Inc. Future
water permits for public utilities or developments
are at stake, and must contend with the water use
caution area rules.
"It's offensive that SWFWMD thinks the only
ones concerned about the resource is them,"
Royce said.
He suggests that the district has the restrictions
now because it over-allocated ground water
resources in the past, and needs Highlands
County's ground water numbers to balance its
water management plan.
Dr. Hilary Swain, director of Archbold
Biological Station, suggested that. the county out-
line more than just water use rules in the memo-
randum of understanding, including such things
as monitoring wells, 40 years of study data, the
exact reasons for changing districts, and the
wealth of knowledge on Lake Wales Ridge
ecosystems.
Bullard said there is a transitional plan being
formed to deal with these issues. Swain warned
that both water management districts aren't any-
where near ready to deal with the change.


Avon Park man killed in vehicle accident


FROSTPROOF An Avon
Park man was killed and anoth-
er injured in a Polk County
accident.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports indicate 33-year-old
Wayne A. Smith was killed
when the pickup he was driving
hit the back of a Pontiac
SunBird just south of
Frostproof shortly after 6:30
p.m. Friday.


TAX
Continued from 1A
the district would have no trou-
ble meeting the stricter stan-
dards without raising taxes, if
the state was still contributing
towards the construction of new
schools.
However, slowly, over the
last three decades, the state has
paid for 'less and less of the
infrastructure, leaving an
increasing burden to the local
community.
For example, in 1995/96,
state sources, known as Public
Education Capital Outlay
(PECO), provided Highlands
County with $1,156,702 for
new construction. Last year it
provided $340,161. This year,
nothing.
This is one reason the prob-
lem has become unmanageable
in some of the larger counties,
and it's why the school board
and Superintendent Wally Cox
are asking for a tax increase.
The half-cent sales tax would
raise $159 million over the next
20 years; money that will' be
spent to upgrade every existing
school as well as construct five
elementary schools, one middle
school and one high school.


Smith reportedly was south-
bound on U:S. 27 and ran a red
light. Jose Garcia-Ponce of
Lumberton, S.C. pulled his car
into the intersection and
Smith's Ford F-150 hit the 1995
Pontiac in the right rear.
Smith's pickup then went out
of control, spun, then over-
turned. Both Smith and his pas-
senger, 34-year-old Ronald
Smith of Avon Park were eject-


ed from the truck.
Ronald Smith was taken to
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center in Sebring. He
was transported to West Palm
Beach. His condition was not
available as of press time.
Garcia-Ponce escaped injury
as did his passengers, 21-year-.
old Elfego Tellez and Julian
Tellez, 24.

Wally Cox, superintendent of schools, (left) and Mike Averyt, direc-
tor of business operations for the school district, rehearse their pres-
entation for a half-cent sales tax increase, before members of the
District School Advisory Council Monday night.


These major additions will
be needed to meet the long-term
challenge: An explosive growth
spurt.
For years Highlands County
experienced a growth rate of
less than one percent. Then,
beginning about five yeqrs ago,
that growth rate ticked up to,
about two and a half percent.

Last year the county grew by
three and a half percent; and
that growth contained a higher
portion of families with school
age children.
Put another way, in 1976 the
Highlands County school dis-
trict had 5,000 students; today it
has just more than 12,000; and.
that figure is expected to double
in the next 20 years.

reportedly traveled through the
roof damaging the three store-
fronts.
"We've owned that building
for 13 years, and other than the
hurricanes, we never have had
any problems, never have had a
claim," said one of The Depot's
owners John Hill.
He and co-owner John
Devaney have been working for
the past six months and were
just getting ready to reopen.
"We were going to open back
up April 1," he said.
Hill said it is not yet known
how much work will be
required to fix the building. He
said he was "devastated" that
the flames had wiped out a lot
of their work.
"We had all new ceilings,
new floors. We'd added 50 new
seats to the dining room. We'd
done a lot of things over there,"
he said.
Nevertheless, Hill said they
would "pick up the pieces" and
start again
Highlands' Lake Volunteer
Fire Department assisted Avon


Park Fire Department. Shortly
after arriving on the scene,
Highlands Lake VFD was
called out around 5:30 p.m. to
extinguish the flames in an
apartment house at 1425
Georgia St.
"It was a small, three-apart-
ment structure," said Highlands
Lake VFD Fire Chief Earl Gray.
He said the one apartment
appeared to be fully involved
when his units arrived at the
scene.
. The apartment, where Missy
Nelson and her two children
resided, was completely gutted.
"They lost everything," Gray
said.
Nelson and her children were
not home at the time of the fire.
Gray reported that there also
was some water and smoke
damage to an adjoining, vacant
apartment, with water damage
to a third unit.
"It seeped through the
walls," he said.
Reportedly, that resident has
since been relocated to another
unit.
Because the volunteers had
been assisting the Avon Park
firefighters; Gray said they
were able to respond quickly.


Highlands Lake volunteers-
received mutual aid from Sun,,
'N Lake volunteer firefighters.
American Red Cross officials
got lodging, food and clothing_
for Nelson and her children, age
2 years old and 4 months old.
"We got them a comfort kit,;
and teddy bears for the kids,"'
said American Red Cross
Service Center Director Art
Harriman with the Highlands.
County division.
Harriman said they would try
to get the family more perma-
nent accommodations by work-

There were no injuries in,

It's showtime at Captain i. .


Ron's Mercantile in Sebring .-
o ." "re lk e r


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Ronald Thomas is a business-
man and a showman.
Three years ago Thomas arrived from Dayton,
Ohio. Now he's relocated his Captain Ron's
Mercantile from the Sebring Outlet Mall to
Tower Square Plaza. This cozy store is chock-
ablock full of surprises: gift items, home decor,
celebrity and sports memorabilia marionettes
and, Sunny Puppets (the sole distributor in
Highland County.) (
"There are small hand puppets to start a grand-
kid out on for $20, or these $39-$49 big puppets
that appeal to the graduates of the Lake Placid
Clown School," Thomas said. "Also, ministries
love these because it gets the kids' attention. I
remember back in Dayton, our minister used a
puppet called Leroy. Not only children, but adults
always looked forward to Leroy's weekly mes-
sage."
Sports memorabilia includes autographed pho-
tos, signed jerseys, (Donovan McNabb's, for
example) miniature helmets, and cards. There are
signed baseballs, basketballs, footballs, and box-
ing gloves, plates, and bats. Michael Vich of the
Atlanta Falcons and Emmett Smith are both rep-,
resented. "New items arriving will be heavy on
the NASCAR theme," Thomas said. "All our
products are authenticated by PSA/DNA and
TRISTAR (the most noted and accepted prove-
nance in this specialty market.) That assures peo-

Some of the celebrity signature cards are of
classics like Dean Martin, Bob Hope and Roy
Rogers, but there are also today's hot stars like
Tom Hanks, Robin Williams or now-popular
Clint Howard, the originator of Winnie the Pooh.
"You name it, we have it, and if we don't, we
can get it," Thomas said.
There's also nautical and patriotic items, a full
line of beautiful birdhouses, and wall plaques.
"We can special order from our catalogs if it's not
in our inventory. We can even drop ship to their'
house," Thomas said. 7
Thomas loves his products and knowledgeably
explains features of each, and he obviously
enjoys satisfying his customers. He is jovial, per-
sonable, and a real showman, not only of his
products, but on the stage as well. Recently he's
played the part of the constable in the "Music
Man" with the Highlands Little Theatre in
Sebring. He also will be performing in the
upcoming "Barnum." Thomas grinned and said,
"I think I'll do a circus window: Lions, tigers,
bears."
Captain'Ron's Mercantile is open from 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. It is located
in the back portion of Tower Square'Plaza at
2926 Sparta Road. Call 449-1155 or 471-1984 or
check out his Web site at www.captronsmercan-
tile.com to see some of his gift line selections or
to make a specialty request. In the near future all
their offerings will be available online.

Clean carpet, upholstery


with Ultrasteam Carpet


One of Highlands
County's newest busi-
nesses is owned and
operated by a recent "i
transplant from Ohio.
Mike Jarrett owns
and operates
Ultrasteam Carpet
Cleaning. He has
been cleaning carpets
and upholstery for
close to three
decades, and has been
self-employed for
almost 20 years.
Jarreit is never one
to sit behind a desk.
He prefers to be out in
the field working. He Ultrastean
thinks that's the way cleaning.
it will always be,
whether he runs a single truck out-
fit, or a large fleet.
In fact, Jarrett also has a call-
forwarding system so each call to
his business is answered whether
he is in the shop of not.
He takes pride in speaking to
people in person.
Jarrett had been vacationing


m also specializes in upholstery

here since 1990, visiting his folks
who had retired in the area.
Like with so many other people,
Jarrett picked up stakes and relo-
cated to Florida permanently after
one bitter winter too many, opting
for the warmer climate, and the
slower pace of Highlands County.
Jarrett arrived knowing exactly


%what he was going to do.
"You can only be an expert in so
many things," he said recently. "I
stick with what I know."
What Jarrett knows is how to
clean carpeting and upholstery.
He can clean some hard surfaces
too. like tile and grout,. stone or
linoleum, but fabric is his special-
ty.
"Experience on the job is the big
thing, and I've got the experience,
and I'm on every job."
It takes Jarrelt around an hour to
clean an average five-area home
(a living room/dinning room, two
bedrooms and a hallway). "We
hardly interrupt your day," he
said, and later stated his prices are
very competitive.
Ulcrasteam brings its own water
and power source, so there is no
need for electricity or water at a
work site.
The telephone number is 471-
3300. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday through Friday, and
8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday.

While John Meek (center) looks on, his wife, Bernice, shakes hands with President George W. Bush.
The Sebring couple were invited to meet the President on Sept. 30, 2004, when he stopped in Lake
Wales to tour a hurricane-damaged orange grove owned by Marty McKenna. Meek, who served in
the U.S. Navy during World War II, had been battling the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to
receive benefits to which he was entitled but had been denied most of his life. Last year, with the
President's intervention, Meek was approved to receive the benefits.

Don't play Russian roulette with health


I Healt beat


This is part one of a two-part
series.
We have all heard about the
drug industry and its daily tur-
moil of defending itself from
the onslaught of the public, the
medical world, and the
press/television. It makes little
sense to add my or anyone
else's opinion on what to do.
The Vioxx's, along' with the
Cox 2 Inhibitors which I wrote
about a month ago will proba-
bly be back in the doctor's
offices soon, and we have to ask
ourselves, why? When the med-
ical world becomes so, political
that we feel forsaken, that we
are almost helpless in being
medically treated, we feel lost,
and then we have major med-
ical problems in our beautiful
country.
There are so many drugs that
are not even fully tested we
have learned. 'The Food and
Drug Administration, at times
we are told, looks the other way
and allows them to be injected,
swallowed, and absorbed into
our bodies. Yes, at the cost of
being physically and emotion-
ally affected. We value, our-
selves as very special h u0.a1,
_ beings and willing to accept at
times mistakes, even stupid
ones in all areas of our lives
where we are hurt by these
errors. However there comes a
time where we must say, no
more.
When we allow ourselves to
be controlled by the dictates of
a medical system, we must
understand that we have the
control of our personal health in
that we are "partners" with our
doctors. This is so, because we
own our bodies and minds and
should have the strength to
speak out, question a decision
related to our personal selves.
We. are owned when we let the
doctor at times, "play" God.
There is only one God, yet in
our lack of knowledge of the
medical world we allow our-
selves to be victimized when
we do not have to be. Many
medical personnel are dedicat-
ed to their profession, work at
times tirelessly to "be there" for
their patients, yet we criticize
them for not helping us, over
drugging us, and seem indiffer-
ent to our needs.
I have heard that dedicated
doctors are told by their patients
to give them a "quick fix," and
get on with it, so that their doc-
tor who is anxious to be of serv-
ice, gives in to their wishes. My
own medical doctor, brother of
40 plus years practice., is asked
by his patients, against his deci-
sions, to be treated in a healthy
manner, to change his methods
and give antidepressants that
are really uncalled for at that
time. Many psychiatrists treat
their patients without the use of
drugs. Preferring the successful
ways he has experienced, it
becomes quite frustrating to see
of late this controlling attitude
by the patient.

New youth program
sets open house
AVON PARK The Mid-
Florida Center is hosting an
open house and barbecue for
The Starting Point Youth
Program from 5-7 p.m.
Tuesday at 100 East Ernest
Sims St.
Hear about a new program in
this community for youth with
substance-related problems or
concerns. Participants receive a
free meal consisting of barbe-
cued pulled pork, baked beans,
chips and soft drinks.


It seems to me that
when we need med-
ical help, it would be ,
most important to
read up on the condi-
tion, come prepared to
the doctor's office
with notes that he can
share with his practi- Ni
tioner, and if rebutted
or controlled, we have W[
option to go else-
where. I hear too often JO
that whatever "Doc"
says is good enough Ra
for me, yet many peo- "
ple today know how
important a more natural
approach might be better.
Trained in a conventional man-
ner, is becomes a bit difficult
for medical people to change
the way they treat their patient.
What is and more important
than ever, is to try to "open up",
to what is actually happening in
the medical world. Today there
are close to 40 universities
training medical students,
Integrative Medicine and
Harvard, Columbia, Tulane,
Southern California, University
of California Los Angeles, and
Duke, are a few of the more
prestigious medical schools.
Antibiotics, according to the
medical reports coming out,
have less impact on the ill, yet
many patients are clamoring for
them. There are newer natural
approaches to treat people and
quite effectively. I believe that
God did not want human
beings, (his children) to swal.-
low or take in some form,
drugs. How interesting that so
many drugs are part herbal. Our
forefathers, and theirs, and way
down the line for over thou-
sands of years, survived many
illnesses with the use of herbs.
Most men know that saw pal-

Scam artists are


always on the prowl

An old English proverb says: "A fool and his money
are soon parted."
Some scam artists are banking on that whether they
use the mail, the phone or the Internet.
A few weeks ago, emboldened crooks tried to sucker
Florida's attorney general, Charlie Crist. More recently,
an Avon Park. hotel owner was a target of a similar scam.,
In both cases, the perpetrators sent checks and encour-
.aged the recipients to cash them. Steve Vanderzee, owner
of the Lake Verona Lodge, received a cashier's check to
cover a reservation that was double the cost he would
have charged. It made him suspicious.
Upon checking with a bank, Vanderzee found out the
check was fake. If he had tried to cash it, it would have
bounced and the scam artists could have received enough
information about his bank account to clean him out.
Internet users must also watch for scams. EBay, for
example, has established its own Security Center to edu-
cate its customers about fraud. This is because-the auc-
tion giant has been plagued by scam artists who send
spoof e-mlails to warn eBay users that their account is
about to be canceled.
The e-mails say that the only remedy is for them to
provide certain kinds of personal .information their
birth dates, Social Security numbers, bank account num-
bers and.credit card numbers.
This is everything a scam artist needs to steal their
identity. EBay, by the way, requires none of this infor-
mation for customers to.do business at its Web site.
In another familiar scam, Internet crooks send e-mails
claiming that the recipient has won the lottery in another
country. They have to contact the office and exchange
personal information or make a deposit in order to
collect their winnings. Of course, they never do.
Smart citizens must be vigilant about protecting their
private financial information from those who would mis-
,.use it. Some tips on how to do that come from the
4Federal Trade Commission.
For starters, don't give out personal information on the
phone, through the mail or on the Internet unless you are
-sure of who you are dealing with.
Even if you think you do, check twice or look for sus-
_ picious tip-offs. Vanderzee thought the cashier's check
S- ight be fraudulent because it came from Nigeria. And
:the eBay spoof e-mails are filled with typographical
errors a standard tip-off that the e-mail didn't come
!from a legitimate company.
If you are sending mail that may contain sensitive
information, the FTC recommends depositing it at a local
post office or collection box rather than leaving it in an
unsecured .mailbox.
Tear up or shred documents that contain information
you want to protect. These can include credit card
receipts, insurance forms, copies of credit applications,
physician statements, checks and bank statements, and
expired credit cards.
Don't carry your Social Security and health insurance
cards. Leave them at home in a safe place. Give out those
numbers only when absolutely necessary.
Be cautious when responding to promotions. Identity
thieves may create phony, promotional offers to get you
to give them your personal information.
Remember that banks and legitimate businesses will
never call .and ask you to verify information like your
Social Security number or credit card number.
Legitimate banks already have that information they
got it when you opened your account.
Of course, the best test for recognizing any scam, as
safety experts would agree: If it sounds too good to be
true, it is.




WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINION.
How do you protect yourself from scheming

Gangs attract
young children
Editor:
A child's point of view of
prison is not a deterrent.
Prison is a place where you
hang out with friends like your-
self. You are allowed to be
inappropriate with your lan-
guage and if you are a little vio-
lent, who cares? Nearly every-
one there is.
You have your own bed,
three meals a day, clean
clothes, medical and dental
care. You can actually have a
job, finish high school, go to
college all free of charge.
For fun you have TV,
Internet access, video games,
lift weights, play football and
basketball. If you're a girl,
hang out and do each other's
hair and nails and listen to any
kind of music you want.
Grown-ups tell you what to
do anyway. And there are
already cameras in the school.
So it wouldn't be that much dif-
ferent.
If you make friends with the
right people, you can smoke
cigarettes and. do drugs. Then,
when you get out you have all'
of these friends who will help
set you up, support you like
family.
This is, a child's point of
view, but it is very real to these
children. That is why gangs are
having such an impact in their
lives.
Can responsible adults inter-
cede? That is the challenge.

Editor:
If Terri Schiavo is released



A trip w
Recently, I went to
Last Chance Ranch,
a place for troubled
teens.
No! I wasn't there
as a resident. I went
on a "site visit" with
United Way of
Central Florida.
I also visited
Hansen House, a res- YOUl
idential living facility
for neglected and I
abused children, and
the Legal Aid BEN.
Society, a group of Au
attorneys that repre-
sent low income people in abu-
sive relationships.
You might be wondering
why I went to these places?
I am among a team of people
that includes students and
adults who are on the United
Way Investment Committee.
Our committee helps to provide
money for these agencies.
While at Last Chance I met a
lot of people, but I would like to
share with you a conversation
that I had with an individual.
Before talking to me he
asked me my age. When I told
him how old I was he said that
at my age he was on the street


from her feeding tube, how will
the event be looked at, say,
tomorrow, in six months, or a
year from now.
Schiavo is a woman who is
not a criminal. She has done
nothing wrong, and she is alive.
Can some people dare have
the nerve and gall to justly say
they believe that she would
rather be dead?
Just recently, we read about
the comatose woman who
spoke for the first time in 20
years. This miracle brought a
'daughter back to caring par-
ents.
Another story ,detailed two
teenagers giving a baby up for
adoption. Years later, they
found each other again, married
and found their 16-year-old
child.
These stories and many
more, are not random. They are
wonderful stories that man had
no control over.
Schiavo's parents love her.
Many people pray for her and
her parents daily.
There is a bigger picture
here. It involves more faith,
more love and a higher calling
than the assumed power of
men.
This indeed is truly a very
sad story for Schiavo and for
our society.

chore that was. It is amazing as
to the amount of trash and kind
of stuff that is thrown on our
roadsides.
We left the park at 8 a.m.
with gloves,, large plastic bags,
and grabbers (just in case) and
did both sides of the road. We
went from 621 to Ivy Drive on
Highlands Lake Drive, which
made it approximately four
miles.
We go out twice a year and
clean up. We also do lakes in
the area twice a year. The lake
cleanup always involves more
"stuff" that is collected. It is
really an eye opener as to the
"stuff' that we pick up that the
"nice" people who use our
lakes leave behind them for us
to pick up and haul away. We
pick up beer bottles, cans, old
tires, bags of trash, plastic bot-
tles, old clothes, children's toys
and just "stuff." We usually end
up with a large Dumpster full
of the stuff.
The Airboat members do a
lot of community service in the
area. We enjoy helping out the
community and appreciate all
the folk that help us by not lit-
tering the areas.
The cleanup crew that came
out on Sunday was Chuck
Krueger, Don Canne, Joe
Bonett, Dave Boyer, Suzanne
Krueger, Joe Gartley, Ted Clay,
Angel Bonett, Willard
Campbell, Joan Boyer,
Rosemarie Beringer, Angela
Akes and Willa Keene.
It was a beautiful sunny day
and enjoyed by all. Later that
day we all enjoyed a great bar-
becue at the park.
So. until the next cleanup in
the fall, keep it clean. Thank
you all.

MURPHY'S LAW
Lindsey N. 4lurphy


oy in

offering

Now, this is something that
s been laid upon my heart
avily the last month or so.-I
uld like to warn you that it
es take a little time to fully
asp, but once you have the
derstanding in mind, your
will seem a bit more mean-
;ful.
What I am talking about is
joy in suffering, a huge
ymoron, I know. But, give
some time and bear with
el.


Joy ... is the

idea of knowing

there is

something

beyond what

you are ...


Joy is something completely
different than happiness. It is
the idea of knowing there is
something beyond what you
are, and holding onto faith for
the future. However, happiness
is just holding onto the present,
the materialistic aspect.
Now that our bases are cov-
ered, I feel like this past month
has truly confirmed my mean-
ing in this bizarre concept.
Through a seemingly endless

battle: with being sick, I have
come out of it with a smile on
my face and a glimmer to my
eyes.
The glimmer is coming from
knowing I am looking into a
joy that is beyond anything else
I have ever known. It is the joy
of really seeing that this world
is not my home, for I am only
passing through it (Philippians
3:20).
Perhaps each one of us goes
through trials to understand
that what we have on this earth
will pass quickly by, but what
we have in Heaven is there for
eternity.
That is where the real joy
comes from. And honestly,
there were many times this past
month that my smile was not
on my face. I was not happy
because I did not feel good.
Maybe pouting and being
grouchy is a better term for it.
Despite how it might be
described, I knew that I had one
thing I still called my own. It is
the power to have joy living
within me.
"There are always good
things that come from bad" is a
saying that my mom has
always said to me since I was
small. It has taken a long time
for me to catch onto this, but
for a little insight it is very
true. I have never been so
grateful to be able to just walk
around and see the morning
light than recently. I guess
being sick will do that to you.
I,would like to send a thanks
out to the many people who
have been there by my side.
And a special thanks to Dr.
Gonzalez, who seemed to calm
my nerves and fix my wounds.
Not even to mention his won-
derful staff who got me laugh-
ing, and kept it that way.
So, as we are preparing to
conclude this season of Lent, I
would like to encourage any-
one who just seems to be sick,
upset or plain out hurting. For,
after all, this is not your home
there is something better
waiting for you. And, the best
part is, it will keep that. little
light of yours aglow. The light
will be shining with joy for the
rest of the world.

Park resident, is a sophomore at

Grandparents group joins statewide fight against child abuse, neglect


In meeting the needs and
concerns of the grandchildren
or kin children that we are rais-
ing in Highlands County we
have been given the opportunity
to protect your grandchildren
and/or kin children by working
closely with Heartland for
Children and Devereux Kids.
The numbers rise daily in this
county due to the
abuse or neglect of
these children by the GRAN
biological parents due WIS
to divorce, death,
drugs and mental ill- Di
ness. We are grandpar- Thib
ents and kin who have
stepped forward and
taken on the joy, along with its
burdens, of raising these chil-
dren.
April is Child Abuse
Prevention Month and we plan
to work with these agencies to
prevent child abuse.
Locally there is a case where
the biological parents have been
incarcerated for withholding a
small child from Child
Protection Services, known as
DCF or the Department of
Children and Families.
I am sad that the grandmoth-
er of this child apparently
thought more of the parents
then the health and safety of the
child. For every act or deed we
do there is a consequence and I
am glad to see that those
involved with this case have
made the consequence a reality
for the parents of that child.
A child needs to be protected
and sadly, often they need pro-
tection from their own parents.
Child abuse of any type is
appalling. We hear of it on the
television and read about it in
the newspapers. To the majority
of us, the thought of abusing a
child physically, sexually or
emotionally is something that is


unfathomable. Sadly, to some
children it has become an
everyday occurrence.
You may see that over-
stressed parent in the local store
yelling or even slapping a child.
We have no idea what happens
to that child that is just being a
child when they get home out of
the public eye. The ones that
can talk are so scared
to that it takes the
IDMA S watchful eye of some-
SDOM one who cares to see
the marks or actions
the abuse has caused to
ane
odeau make a difference.
For the infants and
toddlers, it has to be
even worse. Imagine being a
helpless infant or toddler that's
last view of life is of being
slammed into a wall by some-
one that they perceived as
someone that loved and cared
for them.
I have been attending meet-
ings where both Heartland for
Children and Devereux Kids
have been working on ways to
stop the abuse in the tri-county
area of District 14.
Heartland for Children is the
lead agency for community
based care (formerly called pri-
vatization). They are charged
with taking over most of the
family services duties of the
'Department of Children and
Families. They contract out
with local agencies to provide
services to children and fami-
lies within the system. But, they
also need non-contracted
resources and providers in the
communities to round out the
full range of services and meet
the needs of families in the tri-
' county area.
Our group has been asked to
help.
During the past year, 155,100
children were victims of child


abuse and neglect in Florida,
and some of these children are
those in your neighborhoods,
schools, churches and even-
those that you see but for a
moment in the store with an
overstressed parent.
Some of this abuse and neg-
lect can. be stopped easily by
intervention. Intervention does
not automatically mean that a
child or children will be
removed from their parents.
Part of the prevention aspect of
child abuse is to help the par-
ents of the children overcome
some of the stress in their lives
that could result in child abuse.
If we can help the parents
through a very stressful situa-
tion they are going through by
either helping them to learn
coping skills, parenting skills or
even helping them through
another stressor, we just may
prevent a situation where a
child or children have to be
removed due to neglect or
abuse.
Devereux Kids was founded
specifically to engage parents
and residents in training, rela-
tionship building and skill
development to increase the
safety and well being of chil-
dren and families in their own
neighborhoods.
In 2003, Heartland for
Children contracted with
Devereux Kids to provide
abuse/neglect prevention train-
ing, and to assist in bringing
advocacy and resource develop-
ment services to communities
throughout Highlands, Hardee
and Polk counties. At this point
I am working closely not only
with Heartland for Children and
Devereux Kids but also with the
Florida Kinship Center, part of
the University of Florida's
School of Social Work.
In dealing with Heartland for


Children and Devereux Kids, I
have found that they do want to
make a difference in children's
lives and in those who are car-
ing for them, whether it be the
parent, a kinship caregiver, or a
grandparent.
They are there when I have a
question from a grandparent
that needs answering. They are
there when I have a family that
is in crisis and just needs some
input on the situation that is
happening within their home.
As a voluntary advocate for
the children that are being
raised by their grandparents or


other kin family members, I
have found that working with
the system that protects the
children is far more conducive
then working against the help
they give.
I still have items available for
those that have found them-
selves parenting again
overnight.
Right now a main goal is to
get an accessible storage unit
for the items. Future plans are
for a Free Store for those grand-
parents and kinship caregivers
in need of infant or children's
items.


There will be a meeting/get-
together in March but the date
has not been set as of this writ-
ing but I will let you know as
soon as the date is set.
If you are raising a grand-
child or kin child or know
someone that is and needs sup-
port, please call me at 382-
3511. You can also reach me at
mazdagrandma @yahoo.com.

SUPPORTS THE
LINK BETWEEN
SUBLUXATIONS AND
CHILDREN'S HEALTH


iL JB PROBLEMS
Dr. Griffin
Spinal misalignments, or subluxations. can contribute to the
onset of health problems in children, according to a study published in
the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research.
Researchers compiled data from 650 children over a five-year
period. All of the children were examined and cared for by six doctors
in Canada, pediatric certified by the International Chiropractic
Pediatric Association.
The doctors looked at the relationship between spinal misalign-
ments scoliosis. spinal degeneration and common childhood health
complaints such as bed-wetting, growing pains and colic.
According to Dr. Ogi Ressel. spinal misalignments are the
"seeds of future disease processes." and should be corrected as soon as
possible.
Spinal misalignments interfere with the nervous system. They
impair the body's ability to function normally. Misalignments can occur
early in life, even during the birthing process.
The body adapts to misalignments and the abnormal functions
become the norm. This contributes to the onset of spinal distortions,
spinal degeneration and the generalized state of unwellness that is often
seen in children.
"This study provides further evidence of what has been proposed
by other researchers both within and outside Chiropractic these slight
alterations of spinal alignment and motion have far-reaching health
consequences for our children," said Dr. Matthew McCoy,
JVSR editor.
This was the second-largest study of children under ,
Chiropractic care that has ever been conducted, noted
McCoy.

Sizzling start continues as Dragons win again


Rip Frostproof to

improve to 6-0

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID So far, so good.
Lake Placid and starting pitcher P.J.
Milisci continued their unbeaten start to
the 2005 baseball season, dismissing
visiting Frostproof 9-1 Tuesday night to
move to 6-0.
"He's been throwing strikes, and
we're making plays," Lake Placid head
coach Dan Coomes said after Milisci as
he three-hit the Bulldogs for his fourth
victory.
Milisci mixed a sharp breaking ball


with an effective fastball, striking out
five while walking four.
"We had him start to throw (his curve-
ball) harder, and it's making a big differ-
ence, because they're swinging, and the
ball's in the dirt, and they're swinging
and missing, and then when he has to
throw it for a strike, he throws it for a
strike," Coomes added.
On top of Milisci's performance, the
defense was error-free.
"Our defense isn't giving away 10
runs a game like we used to do,"
Coomes said. "We're not doing that.
We're making plays."
A balanced offensive attack once
more led the Dragons, highlighted by
Steven Levine's two-run homer in the
second and Brent Bierman's scorching


RBI-double in the sixth.
"(Levine) hit the ball good. We had
some wind tonight helping us, but he hit
that pretty good," Coomes said. "The
one that really got hit was Bierman's.
That ball was stung, it just
Lake Placid didn't get up far enough."
What Coomes wants his
^9 team to improve upon is
Frostproof staying aggressive
throughout the game.
"We hit some good
balls tonight, but there in
the middle (of the game), that disturbed
me, because we just kind of stood there,
and we watched a bunch of pitches, and
we weren't aggressive, and that's the
type of thing we've been talking about
we don't want to happen," he said.


The mid-game letdown may be in part
because of the team's unfamiliarity with
the kind of 5-0 lead against Frostproof
starter Jimmy Moser like they held after
two innings Tuesday.
"You've got to remember where
we've been. Winning is something new
for these guys," Coomes said of his
team, which is coming off an eight-win
2004. "I'm not saying that this makes the
season it doesn't. Because every
game we play we've got to come out and
play. We let down a little bit in the mid-
dle of the game, and that's part of our
mystique."
Yet the Dragons' baseball IQ contin-
ues to improve.
"They're listening. They're trying to

Avon Park edges Sebring

Strong pitching, second-inning rally fuel win over rivals


BY JOHN RITrER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Avon Park snapped a
five-game skid against its cross-county
rival Tuesday night, snapping off six hits
against two Streak pitchers in a huge 3-2
win over Sebring at Firemen's Field.
Sophomore lefty Johnny Sedlock
picked up the win, striking out nine in
five innings of work while seniors Billy
Dobson and Robert Lewis provided the
relief in the final two frames to seal the
victory. Combined, the Avon Park hurlers
stranded 11 Sebring runners on base.
Head coach Mort Jackson explained
the reason for the change in pitchers was
Sedlock reached the 100-pitch count.
"That's the first time I got to pitch
what I consider our ace, our number two
starter and our number three starter,"
head coach Mort Jackson said. "We had
two seniors do a great job coming up in a


tough situation and pitched in the sixth
and the seventh (innings) and I'm really
proud of those guys.
"It was a whirl of a game and you can't
say enough about them. If you get that
kind of pitching, you've got to win so
Avon Park we're really happy with
Avon Park that."
3 Avon Park's only blip
came in the fifth, when
Sebring Sebring's Ryan Williams
drilled a two-run homer to
2m center.
Avon Park (3-2) also
scored all of its three runs in the second
inning -after Sedlock escaped a bases-
loaded jam.
Three consecutive hits led off the
inning for the Devils, starting with a
Lewis single. He then came in to score
from first when Taiwan Perry ripped a
double into left-center field.


Luke Sedlock then traded places with
Perry, driving one to nearly the identical
spot to go up 3-0. Then, with Sedlock one
second, a dropped fly ball in center field
allowed him to scamper home easily.
Luke Sedlock was 2-for-3 with a double,
a run scored and an RBI.
Sebring finally answered that burst in
the fifth frame when Williams smashed a
his third homer of the season to also
bring in brother Colt Williams, who
walked.
The Streaks kept things running later
in the inning, loading the bases on three
walks, but Sedlock shut down the rally,
escaping his second bases-loaded scare
with a strikeout.
Sebring only threatened again in the
seventh with a one-out walk and single.
However, Lewis struck out the next bat-
ter and popped up the ensuing to close
the game.


Devils hold off

Tigers to avoid

Monday blues
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Avon Park
found a cure for a case of the
Monday.
The Red Devils had little artis-
tic success Monday night, but
used grit and alert defense to over-
come sluggishness for a 3-2 victo-
ry visiting Clewiston.
"That's why we play one
Monday game all year. I hate
Monday games," Avon Park head.
coach Mort Jackson said. "I hate
Monday work-wise, I hate
Monday baseball-wise, but hope-
Sfully, tha'll be our-last Monday
baseball-wise."
Yet Jackson hopes the game is
the first of many won by Taiwan
Perry (1-0), a con- Avon Park
verted position play-
er who took the
mound for his first w
high school start and Clewiston
allowed only one
unearned run in four 2
innings of work.
"He did a decent job," Jackson
said. "He's got a good arm. The
ball really moves well."
Perry is the protdg6 of first-year
pitching coach Seth Lambert, the
all-time wins leader at Warner
Southern College.
"He's really enthusiastic about
him," Jackson said of Lambert's
attitude toward Perry. "He likes
him, and really thinks that he
could have a bright future on the
mound."
Lambert, who was at a class,
missed the game Monday but had
already scheduled for Perry to be
taken down for Scott Green in the
fifth, and though Green allowed a
runner in scoring position each of
the three innings he threw, he gave
up only one run and earned his
first save of the year.
"Scott came in and at times
looked great and at times, whoa,
he'd give a coach a heart attack,"

job. He ended up doing what he
needed to do to win the game."
After escaping a fifth-inning
jam, Green threw 10 straight
balls to start the sixth. But the
failure of a Clewiston batter to
get down a bunt left lead runner

strike out the final batter of the
inning.


The right-hander hit the first
batter of the seventh and
allowed him to come around to
score, but struck out the., last

"That was huge for him.
Down the road he'll know that
he has that capability," Jackson
said. "Scott can be our ace
reliever."

Coomes said. "They sit over
here and make charts on coach-

here it is, this is what the pitch
is when he does this,' or 'When

AVON PARK The Avon
Park Founders Garden Club
will have its annual plant sale
Saturday on the Avon Park
Mall.
Many yards lost plants to last
summer's hurricanes, the club
has noted, and the sale will
offer a good opportunity to


replace them.
Nursery-grown plants will
include plumbago, three types
of viburnum, shefflera, several
colors of lantana, red diplade-
nia, star jasmine, confederate
jasmine, liriope and red foun-
tain grass.
Caladium bulbs will be avail-


able in fancy and dwarf vari-
eties. Prices will be higher than
previous years due to a small
crop.
Member-grown plants and
arrangements of bromeliads
will be available as well.
The sale will begin at 9 a.m.
and run until 1 p.m.

Spring

Spring Break is
finally here!
This long anticipat-
ed break brings fun,
relaxation, and most
of all a break from
school. Spring Break
is said to be the most
.awaited break of all.
If you are not sure
-what to do, prepare to Ci
,be enlightened, and
make your Spring LEVI
.Break officially
unforgettable. SEBRIN
While on Spring Sc
IBreak the possibili-
*ties are unlimited.
The most desirable thing to do
is take a vacation. If possible,
-take a vacation out of your
.home state. It gives you a
'chance to see different sur-
ioundings and meet new peo-
ple.
: If you are financially unable,
you may want to take a trip to
Wakulla Springs. This Florida
state park offers cr. '. lear



Adoption is

a win-win for

- Hil involved
By SHANNON GILLILANi
Sebring High School
Adoption is a win-win situa-
tion. It "is a legal process that
creates a new, permanent par-
ent-child relationship where
one did not exist before,"
according to Nancy Ashe from
the Adoption Information Web
$ite.
The parents end up with a
child they had been waiting to
love, and the child becomes
part of a family.
There are children all over
The world, even here in the
United States, who do not have
a normal or traditional family to
come home to. There are chil-
ldren who do not have parents or
Guardians to love and care for
.them.
These children need love and
nurturingg to grow and prosper.
-They deserve that chance just as
jnuch as any other child, but
they were not born into the right
family or with the right condi-
lions.
None of these circumstances
are their fault and there is noth-
ing that they can do on their
own to change them.
If you were abandoned,
wouldn't you be thankful to
someone.who adopted you and
raised you as their own child?
For example, the number of
orphaned children in China is
constantly growing. According
.to the National Data Analysis
System's November 2003
report, there are estimated to be
.65 million children in Asia
without an "available caregiv-
er." These children are, most of
the time, small girls.


Break is finally here

water for swimming,
3,000 acres of
unblemished forests,
clean picnic tables to
enjoy a meal, more
than 180 species of
birds, glass-bottom
riverboat tours, and a
place for you to rest
and get a good
night's sleep.
Wakulla Springs is
an excellent site for
kayaking and canoe-
ing. Nature trails
located along the
park drive provide
access to an array of


plant and wildlife communities.
This is all at your convenience.
Admission is just $3.25.
Prices for lodging and boat
rides are additional.
Moreover, to make this
year's Spring Break even more
unforgettable you can simply
stay with a trusted relative or
friend. This gets you out of your
-Iousc and gives you :t ch ce to


bond with your selected relative
or friend. While there listen to
your favorite bands, go to a
local theatre, shop till you drop
in a large shopping center, or.
even prank call a few of your
buddies.
If you plan to stay with them
as a 'means of relaxation, I
strongly advice you not to if
they have loud aggravating sib-
lings,. Your grandmother or
grandfather's house may be the
better decision to make if that is
the situation. Their house is
most likely quieter and more
opportune for rest and rehabili-
tation.

Furthermore, I strongly
advise you to go see a concert
of your favorite music artistss.
If you decide to indulge in a
musical concert, get your
money's worth. Don't just sit
there and listen. Get up, scream
your head off, jump for joy, and
clap with enthusiasm. Be lively
while you have the opportunity.

Shannon Gillilan holds Sydney Lieske, 4, who was adopted from
China in 2001. She functions like a normal 4-year-old and is
adorable. This story has a very happy ending.


This report also states that
the country has a population
control policy that limits each
family to only one child. This
policy creates abandonment
problems because the families
want to keep the boys to do the
work and carry on their family
name and they sometimes leave
their baby girl somewhere, such
as a marketplace. Most of these
children are raised in orphan-
ages and do not receive the
proper amounts of attention and
care that are needed.
According to the Adopt A
Child Web site, the most com-
mon effects of abandonment on
a child are size, growth rate,


and developmental delays.
However, these effects of aban-
donment can vanish and the
child can "flourish" once adopt-
ed into a family.
Could wou imagine what
these children would be like or
where they would be if they
were never found where they
were left or no one had ever,
adopted them from the orphan-
age?
The adoption process is
sometimes long and tedious,
but in the end it is well worth it
for all of those involved.
Always remember, adoption is
an option.


After all, this is the only
Spring Break of this year and it
is what you make of it. I believe
that if you invest in an activity,
such as the pre-stated, you will
be overwhelmingly satisfied
and rejuvenated for future invi-
tations of fun.

Spring Break is finally here..
Whatever your decision, have
fun. Despite what the scenario
emphasizes.

You may choose to hang with
friends, travel out of town, have
a cookout, or spend quality time
with yourself.
This' 2004-2005 Spring
Break is full of endless possibil-
ities. Stay safe and make this
Spring Break an unforgettable
occasion.

Understanding

bipolar disorder
By NOELLE JOHNSON
Sebring High School
What is bipolar disorder?
Bipolar disorder is a disorder in
a person's brain that causes the
person to have different
changes in their ability to func-
tion in everyday life. ,
According to mhsource.com,
one percent to two percent of
the population in the United
States has this disorder.
Statistics show that more than
two million American adults
are bipolar. Bipolar disorder
can also be described as manic-
depressive illness.
How do you know if you are
bipolar? There are points of ups
and downs known as episodes
of depression. Some signs of
bipolar are:
Not being able to concen-
trate.
Aggressive behavior.
Denial that anything is
wrong.
Since bipolar disorder can
cause depression, most people
with this disorder can become
suicidal. Upon being suicidal,
people who are bipolar can
have psychotic moments.
There are two stages of bipo-
lar: Bipolar 1 and Bipolar 2.
Bipolar 1 is the state of mania
with different stages of depres-
sion, some worse than others.
These stages can be known as
mixed stages. Bipolar 2 is
recurring episodes of depres-
sion.
Bipolar disorder can happen
to anyone, whoever you may
be. According to Neuroscience
for Kids, many famous people
were believed to be bipolar.
People like Abraham .Lincoln,
Theodore Roosevelt, Beet-
hoven and Jean-Claude Van
Damme.
Living with bipolar disorder
doesn't have to be a hassle.
There are treatments that can
help you go through everyday
life like a normal person.


By NOELLE JOHNSON
Sebring High School
Do you really know your
friends? Do they talk about you
behind your back? Or do they
lie to you all the time?
I believe that having a best
friend means they respect you
and are always truthful to your
friendship.
Sometimes you might have
something good happen to you,
and they become jealous and
make up a story to overcome
yours. In a sense that kind of
makes you angry, but in anoth-
er way it makes you want to
feel pity for them, because they
had to lie to try to be better than
you.
In most friendship relation-
ships, teens have more than one
best friend, but there 'is only
really going to be one friend
you can truly depend on. That
friend is straight forward and
respectful of you. This relation-
ship can make friends trust each
other as a whole.
Now, a so-called friend that
says they're your "friend," but
then they turn around and talk
about you in a hateful way, is
not much of a friend at all.
"In a friend, I look for trust
and respect," said Chris


Leveridge, a student at Sebring
High School. "I don't like when
a friend tries to act like their
better than everyone else."
Now, if you are being truth-
ful to yourselves you. all know
you have a friend like that. You
may not realize it yet, but one
day you should be prepared for
any event with a friend that
might come along.
Ever since that first day of
kindergarten, kids have made
friends at each grade they went
through. Come to think of .it,
many kids end up dating their
best friends who may be the
opposite sex.
Most people say when you
enter your teen years, your
friendships start to become a
little more complicated. In a
weird way it actually starts as
you progress in age. Starting
from when you were like 5 to
your older years now.
How many times have you
heard from a friend, "Oh I'm
sorry, I made a mistake?" There
are no mistakes; there are stuff
you do and stuff you don't do.
Sometimes you have to just
stop and think about what your
friendship really means to
them.


Vending machines with


snacks would be nice


How many of you
have had that embar-
rassing rumble in
your stomach, growl-
ing and aching from,
hungriness, while sit-
ting in a quiet class-
room?
I am sure the
majority of you have.,
,Unfortunately, the
only thing you can do
about that growling is
suffer through it. .
The solution to


ARIEL

SEBRIN6
SCH


hungriness during school time
could be vending machines
with snacks in them.
Sebring High
School makes a 'Teache
lot of money
through the vending
v e n d'i n g
machines that machine(
carry Coca
Cola products. I food ...
can think of at
least 12 can't w
machines the
school possess- TAT
es. However, if
the school car-
ried vending machines with
snacks for those morning or
afternoon munchies, Sebring
High would definitely increase
its profits.
I have a blocked math class,
and it is right before lunch.
Sometimes, everybody who
wants to have a cookie because
they. are hungry gives one per-
son a quarter. Quite often, there
will be 15 cookies to be pur-
chased and that one person goes
to the cafeteria before the sec-
ond half of the blocked class,
during the break. That is almost
$4 just for our class per day.


There are a lot of
other blocked classes
that do that, too.
When you do the
math, it can add up to
a lot of money. If the
school had ending
machines with food
like that, the school
would make even
VUTO more money. ,
Can you picture it:
G HIGH Honeybuns, cup-
QO- cakes, chips, cook-
ies, Skittles,
M&M's, etc., to munch on dur-
ing the day. It would unques-
tionably brighten up the atti-

tudes of stu-

"We need
vending
machines
because they
would be con-
venient for us
students;
sometimes we
just want a


NNA GONZALEZ, cheap snack,"
Sebring High
School
Sophomore Tatiana Gonzalez
said. "Teachers have a vending
machine with, food in their
teachers' lounges, so why can't
we?"
I really hope that someone
out there, reading my article, is
receiving a huge influence right
this very second to help the
school out.
Vending machines with
snacks in them could really be a
great, positive thing for Sebring
High. Students, as well as the
school and its income, could get
great benefits just from snack
machines.
