Highlands County Fire Service crew members Luke Andrews (from left) and Ben Henley hoist Mike Jolin out of a hole
Friday afternoon with the help of Kelly Dupenthaller and Kelly Hinkle in Lake Placid. The Highlands County Haz-Mat
team was taking part in a three-day confine space rescue training exercise. According to Emergency Operations Director
Tim Eures, the team recently received a grant worth $200,000, which will be used to 'Raise the level of service,' through-

Raceway preparations in progress


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING As the hours tick
off, counting down to the Mobil 1 12,
Hours of Sebring, crews are using
every available moment to manida
repairs and preparations for the run-
ning of the endurance classic.
Probably the crown jewel for this,
year is the new and improved Club
Sebring. Six open pit boxes were
enclosed to make the addition. It now


is twice the size of the previous Club
Sebring.
While some of the area was used
to expand the existing theater-t pe
seating, the western end of the
expansion was left flat'so serving,
tables could be placed for easy
access.
"The seats have been upgraded -
now they rock. We put in some more
TVs so fans can watch live television
feed and timing and scoring monitors


and we put in an additional bathroom
for their convenience," Sebring
President and General Manager Tres
Stephenson said.
He called the prestigious suite
'"', ithnut qUe.Lion .the ultimate ticket
in American sports car racing."
Club Sebring has sold out every
year since it first was created in
1991. Stephenson answered the
question as to why it was expanded

Minimum



wage bills



working



through



Legislature

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING In November 2004, Florida
voters passed Amendment 5e,to the state
Constitution, providing for the minimum wage
to be raised to $6.15 an hour, then indexing
subsequent hikes to the rate of inflation.
The pay increase is supposed to take effect in
May. However, the provisions of the law have
yet to be determined.
For the most part, the Legislature will be left
to determine the parameters of how the amend-
ment will be enacted and what penalties will
apply to those who violate the law.
Two bills have been filed in the state Senate
to implement the initiative, while another has
been filed in the state House of
Representatives.
Florida Senator J.D. Alexander, whose dis-
trict includes Highlands County, filed one of
the bills, but it has not yet been referred to com-
mittee.
The second measure was filed by Anthony C.
Hill of Jacksonville.
The bill submitted by State Representative
David Simmons of Longwood has drawn the
ire of proponents of the amendment.
They contend that his bill caters to business
interests and undermines .enforcement of the
amendment.
Among other, thing's. the\ charge that
Simmons' bill would eliminate penalties for
employers if they pay employees the wages
they illegally x withheld \ within 15 da\ s.
,They believe Simmons' measure also would

Local Habitat focusing on need, not national issues


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Despite the
recent firing of Habitat for
Humanity founder Mill ard
Fuller by the organization's
executive committee in
Americus, Ga., the Highlands
County chapter will continue to
focus on needs here.
"We see a need here, obvi-
ously, or we wouldn't be in it in
the first place," Jane Breylinger,
executive director of Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity,
said.


The local affiliate is
autonomous and makes its own
decisions. It also raises its own
funds, since it doesn't receive
money, from the international
chapter. For those reasons,
Breylinger believes it will not
be affected by disruption at the
international office.
Habitat for Humanity has its
international headquarters in
Americas, Ga. On Jan. 31, the
executive committee voted to
remove its 70-year-old founder
following an accusation that he
sexually harassed a female


Old Scotty's store


becomes Do It Best
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Work crews are painting and remodeling
the former Scotty's Hardware in the Lake Placid Shopping
Center to prepare it for its projected reopening April 1 as the
Lake Placid Do It Best Hardware.
Tom Hall, vice president of operations for Lakepar LLC in
Orlando, said the same store manager, Robert Tillis, that was
there under Scotty's will continue with the new hardware store.
"We are very excited to be able to bring a newer, updated
and exciting hardware store business back to Lake Placid. We
did not want to open the doors of this new business without
taking the time to first remodel the store," Hall said.
Lakepar has also bought the former Scotty's Hardware in
Arcadia and will be opening a Do It Best Hardware in that city
as well.
"Customers can expect to find an extended product mix and
an improved in-stock position. We will be adding an expanded
line of lumber, plywood, and building materials. In addition,
we plan to strengthen our lawn and garden areas with a large
selection of plants and landscape items," Hall said.
Lakepar's operating philosophy is "to be your neighborhood

employee. The committee also
fired his wife, Linda, who had
helped run the organization
since its founding in 1970.
Supporters throughout the
giant non-profit have lobbied to
reinstate him, but the commit-
tee reaffirmed its decision on
Tuesday. The waves. of support
also brought forward people
who, after years of silence,
claim inside knowledge of prior
allegations of sexual miscon-
duct by Fuller, some. of it dating,
to before 1976.
His defenders are asking how


a non-profit organization that
describes itself as a Christian
ministry could dishonor a man
who gave away a fortune and
built a movement to help low-
income families buy decent
homes. Accusers want to know
how such an organization
devoted to improving the digni-
ty of all people could, for many
years, cover up allegations that
its leader was demeaning to
women on his staff.
Local mission
Breylinger hasn't seen such


things in her work with the
Fullers and doesn't know what
the truth is. She describes Fuller
as a visionary, who is still chal-
lenging her and others to elimi-
nate substandard housing in
Highlands County.
"It's up to the people in this
community to give and not let
the international office issue
affect their choice to donate,"
she said.
The local chapter can cover
all of its own administrative

SEBRING Good news is
on the employment front in
Highlands County and across--
the state: Florida has the lowest
seasonally adjusted unemploy-
ment rate in more than four
years.
In January, the latest month
for tracking" the job market,
there were 368,000 jobless
workers. The unemployment
rate was 4.3 percent, nearly a
full percentage point below the
national rate.
Highlands County also has
held its good job numbers. For
the first month of the year,
37,071 workers out of its
38,789-member workforce
were on the job. That number is


County Road 17, across from
Lake June Road.
On Tuesday, residents told
the county's planning and zon-
ing board that they didn't
receive proper notice of those
plans.
The board tabled the hearing
until April 12. In the meantime,
it is waiting for representatives
of Sebring Properties LLC to
give the proper notice or pro-
vide proof that they have
already done that.
Sebring Properties had the
property rezoned last year. It


down from 4.6 percent in
December 2004 and down from
4.7 percent a year ago.
The high numbers come in
spite of a low citrus crop this
year, due to grove damage from
the hurricanes that swept cen-
tral Florida last summer.
Neighboring counties also
have agriculturally driven
economies and they suffered
similar grove damage, and yet
they demonstrated good
January employment numbers.
Polk County's unemployment
rate was at 4.6 percent, DeSoto
County's was 4.8 percent; and
Hardee County reported 5.7
percent.
In fact, the state gained

cants allegedly did not notify all
the residents properly.

Gary Lower, the county's
zoning supervisor, said the
applicant had no proof that the
notices had been given correct-
ly. By Florida law, landowners
in such situations must tell ten-
ants within 30 days of the hear-
ings that they will have to move

spaces available for their
mobile homes.
Mobile home park tenants
may own the home, but not the
land. Most newer mobile home
parks will not accept older
mobiles homes, such as those in
Viking Village.

The applicants should also
notify anyone living within 500
feet of the property of the pro-
posed change and meet with
residents of the park to inform
them. There is n'o proof the
company did that, Lower said.


Florida keeps a relocation
trust fund that can help tenants
move. Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said one of
,the complaints he's received is
that some of the residents can't
get any information from the
company. These among other.
issues are expected to be
addressed at the next planning
and zoning meeting.

Attorneys for Sebring
Properties said Friday that the
owners have declined to com-

Crane safety school readies

Bowles for new business


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING While the
Sebring police were investigat-
ing a tragic crane accident that
claimed one man's life earlier
this week, another crane opera-
tor was in Orlando working on
his certification to operate that
kind of heavy machinery.
The class was offered by
North American Crane Bureau,
said Al Bowles, a former
Highlands County facilities
manager. He said he learned the
finer points of crane operation
by working the controls of a
boom truck for Riles Pump.
Now Bowles and Dennis
Riles plan to partner up to start
their own crane business.
"We'd like to do everything
from setting trusses to putting
air conditioners on the roofs of
buildings," Bowles said.
Now that Bowles has
achieved his certification, the
duo is looking for a proper
crane so they can begin their
new endeavor.
"We'd like to find something
around 40 tons with a 90-foot
boom," he said.
Bowles said at this time only
two other businesses offer
crane services in the county.
He said the instructors from
the crane institute had been
well qualified, boasting better
than 100 years of crane operat-
ing experience between them.
_-And; he said, the) covered \ir-


tually every aspect of the skill
during the five-day course. ,
"We learned about the limita-
tions of cranes, load charts,
ground signals and equipment
inspections," Bowles said.
But that's not all, Bowles got
some hands-on experience at
the controls of a "virtual crane."
He said the two-dimensional
nature of the machine posed a
bit of a problem at first but once
he got the hang of it even that
went pretty well.
"They can do anything with
that simulator, including throw-
ing in winds of 15 miles per
hour with 30 miles per hour
gusts," he said.
A physical and some seat
time are the only things that
stand in the way of Bowles get-
ting his final crane certification.
"You have to have a mini-
mum of 150 hours of seat time
for certification," he said. "I'm
already certified for the boom
truck because I have the hours
there. But I'll have to get 150
hours in the crane to be certi-
fied for it."
Currently, there are no
requirements for certification to
operate a crane. In fact, any-
body can get behind the .con-
trols and operate a crane
whether or not they have had
any formal instruction. .
However. Bowles predicted'
it.woni' be long before the kiod
of certification he recently
achieved ~Idl be mandatory.

Fifth-graders
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The All Stars Program and
Lake Country Elementary fifth-graders are being
taught to follow their guiding stars as they make
important life decisions.
But astrology has nothing to do with the new
character-building school and community pro-
gram that is receiving support from students, par-
ents and school counselors.
The All Stars program is a new initiative that
has been used in the middle and elementary
schools for the past two years to encourage young
people to avoid risky behaviors such as substance
use, premarital sexual activity and violence.
Each of the four participants Anthony Spencer,
Michel Carter, Eric Ellerbee, Nathaniel Soto
made a public pledge to avoid drugs, alcohol,
tobacco, violence premature sexual activity and
other risky behaviors.
They sealed their pledges by donning All Star
rings brought by their parents. Each star on their
rings represents one of the healthy behaviors the
students have decided to maintain )n their lives.
As part of the All Stars program, the students
were videotaped making their private pledges to
avoid drugs, alcohol, tobacco, early sexual
behaviors. The video was shown at the third cel-
ebration ceremony on March 3.
The Hiway Park Black Businessmen have
made the commitment to fund the curriculum
materials to all fifth-graders in the Lake Placid
area. The program has worked very well with the
Florida Hospital Abstinence program held in the
summer at the Star Summer Program.

In a case that spans both
Lake Placid and Sebring,
Frieda Lynn Parker, 40, of
Sebring, was charged Tuesday
under warrants for four counts
of forgery.
It started in July 2004 when
an 89-year-old woman
answered an advertisement
from Parker offering homecare
service. Parker went to the
woman's address in Lake
Placid and presented herself as
a licensed homecare provider
operating her own homelier
business, A Third Hand
Homecare Service.
,The victim
hired Parker to
assist her with
day-to-day
duties such as .". '
driving her to .
the store; med-
ical appoint- PARKER
ments, shop-
ping and companionship.
She dismissed Parker, how-
ever, Nov. 26, 2004, in part
because Parker wanted to
attend nursing school.
However, the victim discovered
a diamond ring was lost or
missing from her home. She
also had received a phone call
from a gasoline station regard-
ing a $30 purchase of gasoline


that she didn't remember mak-
ing. Several checks were miss-
ing from her checkbook. It
turned out they had been forged
and cashed for a total of more
than $10,000.
While Parker is licensed as a
certified nursing assistant, she
got the license Jan. 13, 2005,
and wasn't licensed at the time
the elderly woman employed
her, according to complaint
affidavits. On Feb. 15, 2005,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies learned she does not
have an occupational license
from the Highlands County Tax
Collectors Office to operate a
homecare business. It,turns out
that, she filed a fictitious, name
with the Florida Department of
State, Division of Corporations
on Nov. 4, 2004, for A Third
Hand Homecare Services.
Deputies discovered that
Parker opened an account with
Heartland National Bank on
Dec. 1, 2004, using that busi-
ness name and one of the forged
checks $7,000 as the
starting deposit. Other checks
were written for $4,000, $1,000
and $200.
Parker was charged under
warrants for scheme to defraud,
four counts of forgery, four
counts of uttering a forgery,
three counts of grand theft and
one count of petit theft.

--- raffle picking up speed


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Jonathan Demiar, an eighth-grader at Walker Memorial Academy in Avon park, is headed to Orlando
and the 'Readers Digest' Word Power Challenge. He is one of only 100 students who will vie for the title
of state champion.


Avon Park eighth-grader


takes Word Power Challenge


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Which of the following four
words best completes this sentence: His specious
answers to the question were
A) difficult,
B) mediocre,
C) misleading, or
D) long.
That is a sample question from the "Reader's
Digest" Word Power Challenge, a national com-
petition designed for students from the fourth to
eighth grades.
The Word Power Challenge is structured like
the better known spelling and geography bees.
They all begin at the school, move to the state,
and then on to a national competition, narrowing
the field every step of the way.
To become a state champion, and thereby be
one of only 50 finalists out of the thousands who
compete, is a tremendous accomplishment.
For the second year in a row, Walker Memorial
Academy is sending a student to the state cham-
pionships, to be in Orlando this. Thursday.
Last year, Chris Tangunan represented the
school, this year it is Jonathan Demiar's turn.
Demiar's quest began last October when he
and 95 schoolmates took the first round multiple
choice test. The top five scorers in each grade
then competed in a second round which deter-
mined each grade's champion.
As eighth grade champion, Demiar joined the
other grade champions and took a third round test
at the school. Those answer sheets, however,
were forwarded to "Reader's Digest" where they
were scored along with all the other contestant's
in the state.
Only the top 100 scores in the state, are mov-
ing to the next level. Demiar is one of those 100.
Demiar faces quite a challenge. He and his fel-
low competitors will be divided into groups of 10


Demiar heads to


state competition
students each. Each group will be tested sepa-
rately, some questions everyone will have to
answer, some questions will be directed to indi-
viduals. Ultimately, one student in each group of
10 will advance to the afternoon final round, the
one that determines the state champion.
The 50 state champions will then -meet in
Orlando in April to compete for the title of
national champion.
That winner will receive a $25,000 scholar-
ship.
At first, Demiar was laid back about the chal-
lenge.
"I didn't really actually study for it early on,"
he said. "Then, later on, when I saw I might make
it, then I started studying."
It was hard at first, because he couldn't find a
useful method. He tried reading the dictionary,
but it wasn't until he found a "Word Power Quiz
Book,'" and found a Word Pos' er Web site, that he
got organized.
Sally Marlier, a fifth-grade teacher at Walker
Memorial Academy and coordinator of the
Challenge at the school, acts as his unofficial
coach and cheerleader.
Demiar is low key and seems relaxed even
though he admits to an occasional case of nerves.
When asked, he admits liking to read, and agrees
that reading probably helped his vocabulary. He's
enjoying "The House of the Scorpion" an adven-
ture, suspense story by Nancy Farmer at the
moment.
Word Power quizzes can be found at
www. rd.com/fun.
By the way, specious means C) misleading.

the art league's Yellow House.
Dubbed "A Motorsports
Retrospective," it features
images of Sebring as taken by
some of the best race photogra-
phers in the business.
In addition to the collection
of photos will be copies of his-

"We're really looking for-
ward to this," Schuessler said.
"We hope it is the beginning of
an annual event to be associated
with the Race."
As for the cars, the art league
has a pair to choose from. One
is a pedal powered Ferrari, the
other a motorized Corvette.
"We're offering them in dif-
ferent drawings because people
kept asking about one or the
other," Schuessler explained.
The bright yellow scale
Corvette C5.R features decals,
rear spoiler and racing sound
effects. It runs on a 12-volt


electrical system and has a two-
speed transmission for 2.5 mph
and 5 mph travel.
The other is an exact replica
of the famous 1952-1957
Ferrari F2 Racer and other
Grand Prix racers of that great
era. The pedal car is all steel
and over four feet long with a
lot of chrome chrome rims,
chrome steering wheel, chrome
kick-off spinners and a chrome
grill.
Tickets are $5 each or two
for $8. They can be purchased
at the Highlands Museum of the
Arts, Wauchula State Bank,
Highlands Independent Bank or
Chicanes Restaurant at the Inn
on the Lakes.
The Corvette is on display at
Chicanes while the Ferrari is at

Highlands County Community Coalition

gathers agencies into a network


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING There is nothing more danger-
ous than an idiot under the influence. And anyone
can be an idiot.
That was one point made by Jeffrey Roth,
director of the Children's Advocacy Center, when
he welcomed an audience of about 60 people to
the Highlands County Community Coalition
lunch Wednesday.
"We need to teach our children to be smarter
than we were," he said, as he outlined how seri-
ous the problem of alcohol abuse and drug addic-
tion has become.
Binge drinking is on the rise, he said. The epi-
demic affects everyone and needs everyone to
solve it.
Gathered in the audience were representatives
of most of the agencies and organizations that
deal with the problems and results of addiction -
from Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton to
members of Avon Park High School's chapter of
Students Against Destructive Decisions.
The HCCC was designed to provide network-
ing opportunities, allowing diverse agencies to
coordinate efforts, avoid redundancies, share
information, and brainstorm together.
The coalition has a concrete goal: To reduce
alcohol binge drinking by 5 percent by 2009.
Benton emphasized the importance of preven-
tion and intervention in solving the problem, and
sees the.need to strengthen the links between law
enforcement and service agencies,
"We isolate enforcement," Benton said, "and
they should be here."
Benton reminded the audience that this prob-
lem is national in scope and not new.


For example, the sheriff's office has already
studied the problem in depth, and has produced a
workbook that addresses some of the issues. It is
work that never stops.
A big reason why has to do with the people
who engage in risky behavior.
Benton described the dilemma by comparing
excessive drinking to smoking tobacco. The
smokers "know it will hurt them, but even so
their usage remains the same. It's like that with
alcohol, they know it can hurt, but they drink it
any way," she said.
This is why prevention can be a frustrating
business and why mental health agencies are
such an important component.
Benton would like to see a substance abuse
program instituted in the county jail, partly
because drug and alcohol, abuse affect every
aspect of life.
"Ninety percent of all thefts and burglaries are
committed by folks on drugs. They're stealing
your stuff to get high," Benton said, "and we for-
get that drugs cause domestic violence."
Then there are the mentally ill who wind up in
jail because there is no other place for them to go.
Benton regretted she didn't have more solu-
tions, but she was heartened by the community's
response. Ultimately, she pointed out, substance
abuse problems can only be solved by everyone
working together.
The HCCC, with its emphasis on education,
training and networking, is uniquely placed to be
of help to all agencies working with the problem
of substance abuse. Individuals or agencies who
would like to join in the effort to lower risky
behavior in Highlands County, especially among
teenagers, can call Laura Van Horn at 471-5662.

SEBRING It's a whole
new world for the workers and
customers of the local branch of
Smith Barney.
Staff have moved out of their
old offices at 145 West Center
Street in downtown Sebring
and into their new facility at
611 U.S. 27 South.
"We've been negotiating for
a new office for some time,"
said Smith Barney Senior Vice
President-Investments Dale
Grubb.
The transition from the old
office to the new one was near-
ly seamless. The office workers
packed everything up last
Friday then spent Saturday and
Sunday getting into the new
location.
"We shut our systems down
last Friday at 4 p.m. when the'
market closed and we were up
and running Monday morning
at 8 a.m."
Nevertheless, Grubb said all
of the crew had been slowly
packing up over the course of
last week so that things would
be ready to go for the weekend
move.
The building was put up by
Dr. Steven Guelff.
"We're the mirror image of
his building," Grubb explained.
"He did the outside work and
Smith Barney did the inside so
it looks like one of their offices
in Miami or Palm Beach."
The staff remains the same,
with four financial advisors and
three assistants taking care of
the local clientele.
The crew will have a bit
more room in the new offices,
which Grubb estimated to be
about 15 percent larger than
their last location.
"We're 2,500 square feet
with about another 1,000 square
feet on the back," he said.
Grubb said the impetus for
the move was elbow room.
"When we opened we had
two brokers and a couple assis-
tants when we grew to seven
we just outgrew the space," he
said. "Plus, New York really
wanted to get us into a new
office. They've been pushing
for that since 1999."
One of their first tasks has
been learning how to operate
the office's new telephone sys-
tem.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Smith Barney has recently relocated to 611 U.S. 27 South in Sebring.
The staff includes Senior Vice President-Investments, Senior
Portfolio Manager and Director's Council Michael Fitch (from left);
Sales Assistant Karen Collette; Senior Vice President-Investments,
Senior Portfolio Management Director, Senior Consulting Group
Associate and Director's Council Dale Grubb; Registered Associate
Gloria Coffey; Vice President-Investments, Resident Manager and
Financial Planning Specialist Gregg Stupinski; Sales Assistant
Christine Parker and Financial Consultant, Financial Planning
Specialist Will Swaine.


"We're all getting used to it,"
he said. "We had a 20-year-old
system at the other place."
.The system was new when
the offices first opened there in
1983.
Grubb said that a new system
of computers and data banks is
on the way but for the foresee-
able future they'll be using their
current equipment.
"What happened is thai the
office was ready a little ahead
of schedule," he said. "The new
equipment should be here at the
end of April."
Smith Barney is a global,
full-service financial firm.
which provides brokerage,
investment banking and asset
management services to corpo-
rations, governments and indi-
viduals around the world.
Company officials say their
core services include sales,


research and trading for indi-
viduals and institutions, under-
writing, advisory and specialty
financing for corporations and
government entities, mutual
fund services, futures and asset
management.
Ranked as the nation's sec-
ond largest retail brokerage
firm, the company offers a full
range of investment products -
including stocks, bonds, mutual
funds, CDs, insurance and
annuities and services such as
advice on retirement planning,
asset allocation, portfolio man-
agement, college funding,
estate planning, trust services
(not available in all states), and
other services for affluent
investors.
The local office may be
reached at its new site at 382-

Four generations of the Simpson family have served in the military during times of war. Lance Cpl.
Doris Velpo 'Pete' Simpson (from left) served during World War II with the U.S. Marine Corps. His son,
retired 1st Sgt. David Simpson Sr., served 20 years with the Marines in Okinawa and Vietnam. Retired
Capt. Charles D. Simpson Jr., the third generation, was stationed in both Germany and Bosnia. Pfc.
Johnathan Ryan Simpson, the fourth generation, is now stationed in Hohenfels, Germany.


Simpson son deployed overseas

SEBRING The son of
Highlands County's former vet-
eran's services officer has been
deployed overseas.
Pfc. Johnathan Ryan
Simpson, who had just recently
enlisted with the U.S. Army,
has been deployed from Fort
Jackson, S.C., to Hohenfels,
Germany.
His father, retired Capt.
Charles D. Simpson Jr., served
in the Army for more than 20
years and was stationed in
Germany twice and Bosnia. He
was the Highlands County vet-
erans service officer for one and
a half years and now is the sen-
ior Army instructor for Lake
Wales Senior High School.
Charles Simpson Jr. said his
son didn't know -until about
eight months ago that he would
serve, although he always knew
it would be in the Army. It's
what he knew from Charles
_ Simpson's 20 years of service.
He reportedly liked the cama-


raderie but didn't like having to
move and uproot so often, or
seeing his father deployed.
Charles Simpson talked to
his son at 5 a.m. Friday, and is
having his son's Ford Ranger
shipped to him, along with
some papers he needs. Aside
from that, Johnathon Simpson
is doing well. He'll be in
Germany three years as a
wheeled vehicle mechanic
doing a lot of on-the-job train-
ing and then being sent to a
school for advanced individual
training.
As for whether his son might
be deployed to .war in the
Middle East, Charles Simpson
said there is "no telling."
Charles Simpson has another
son in the ROTC at the
University of Southern Florida
in Tampa.
When asked how it felt to
leave and serve, Johnathan
Simpson said, "It's a pleasure to
follow in my family's footsteps.
There is a lot of history in our
family who has served or serv-
ing now. In fact, my step-broth-
er, Pfc. Jason Tomblin, is in the
ROTC program at the


University of South Florida
right now. We owe a lot to our
parents, and we are proud to
serve."
In one more year, Jason
Tomblin will be 2nd Lt. Jason
Tomblin, his father said.
"1 can't be any prouder than I
am right now of both young
men," Charles 'Simpson said.
"In fact my grandfather, father,
my sons, and I all have given a
part of ourselves to defend our
country. There is no way I can
describe to you what it means
except to say I am honored and
so very, very proud."
Lance Cpl. Pete Simpson
served in the Marines during
World War II and was stationed
in Hawaii. He was in Hawaii
when a tsunami hit the island in
the 1940s, and still has his
Marine Corps uniform. His son,
retired 1st Sgt. David Simpson
served in the Marine Corps for
over 20 years and was stationed
in Okinawa and Vietnam. He
worked at Glade and Grove
Equipment Company before he,,
retired, but still helps out on
occasion.


Desegregation plan
first of next week
Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash From the Past of March
10, 1965.
George Douglass, school
supertendent, told the
Highlands County School
Board Tuesday night that
copies of the completed deseg-
regation plan will be sent home
with every student next week.
Along with the plans will be a
receipt that parents are asked to
sign, stating that they have
received a copy of the plan, and
these receipts are to be returned
to the teachers.
According to the plan, grades
seven through nine in the fall
term of 1966 and all grades by
the beginning of the 1967 term.
The county will be divided
into three geographic areas.
Each of the three areas will be
subdivided into school atten-
dance zones. The purpose for
the division will be to make
maximum use of existing facil-
ities.
The lines for the geographic
areas, as well as the lines for the
school attendance zones, will
be announced next week.
All students will attend the
schools in the geographic areas
in which they reside. The
enrollment in a school will
depend upon which of the three
options they will exercise.
Under Option One of the
plan, students will attend school
within their attendance zone.
Option Two will allow the
student to select another school
within the area if the grade level
is not provided within the stu-
dent's attendance zone.
Option Three allows the stu-
dent to attend the school they
are presently attending or
would have attended, prior to
the adoption of this plan.
If one of the above options
are not selected then it will be
assumed by the assignment
committee that Option Three
has been chosen by the student.
Options must be exercised,


on forms des-
ignated by the
board, during
the spring reg-
istration, April
15 through
April 30. Only
one bid was
received by
the board for
supplying a
typewriter bookkeeping
machine. The $10,130 bid was
submitted by the National Cash
Register Company, and accept-
ed by the board.
A 1955 International school
bus was sold by the board to the
highest bidder, Jones Auto
Exchange of Homestead for
$520, and sold a 1956 Allis
Chalmers tractor and mower to
M.L. Baker for $139.
In other actions the board
granted $25 per lunch room,
plus $30 car allowance for
lunch personnel to attend the
Florida School Service
Association meeting in April in
Hollywood Beach.
Accepted the request for
Mrs. DeRheata Lanier, librarian
at Avon Elementary School. for
a year's leave of absence due to
illness in her family.
Approved a year's leave of
absence for Zonelle Post Hardy,
librarian at the Woodlawn


Elementary, so

Health department to form medical reserve corps **


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING After dealing
with three hurricanes in a row
last year, Highlands County
Health Department workers had
begun to get a bit frazzled.
The greatest challenge any
county faces in planning for a
disaster is caring for ill, injured
and/or frightened people. So,
the health department plans to
organize a volunteer team
called the Reserve Medical
Corps.
"A lot of people said they
wanted to help. We said, 'We're
sorry, but we don't know what
to do with you,' said Robert
"Bob" Kosiba, Highlands
County Health Department
Regional Special Needs Shelter
Coordinator.
In a health crisis, the health
department needs volunteers,
Kosiba said. They do not need
to be medical personnel,


Volunteers will be trained to provide
assistance to the health department during
natural disasters, such as hurricanes


although that is a preference.
Kosiba said any volunteers who
can provide assistance during
disasters would be welcome.
Residents who want to vol-
unteer are invited to attend an
orientation program about the
newly organized team. If inter-
ested, they will receive special-
ized training to respond to
health and medical situations.
In effect, they will support the
established public health and
emergency medical response
system.
"The need for capable indi-
viduals goes beyond health care
to include those with organiza-
tional, fund development, infor-
mation technology, marketing,
communications, and office
management skills," Kosiba

said. "Anybody can be uti-
lized."
The decision to form a team
came out of discussions after
the 2004 hurricanes on how to
handle victims' needs and still
maintain a high level of service.
Extra help was the top sugges-
tion.
Kosiba doesn't know if other
states have the same program,
but Florida does, especially in
Collier, Lee, and the rest of the
counties served by the Region 6
Domestic Security Task Force.
The team could help reduce
damaging emotional and med-
ical effects of man-made and
natural disasters.
It can also create a frame-
work to match health care pro-
fessional's skills and interests

Race



exhibit

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING While the
Motorsports Retrospective
photo exhibition hangs at the
Yellow House in the adjacent
Artists Village, the Sebring
Library, in the Allen Altvater
Cultural Complex, has a race
exhibit of its own.
In fact, the library's display
is at the front entrance to the
building and is designed to give
people a sense of how the race
- and the cars have devel-
oped over the better than half
century it has been in existence.
"There's a lot of the model
cars and a lot of race memora-
bilia in there," Library Director
Mary Myers said.
The exhibit begins with a
shelf dedicated to Hendricks
Field. The idea is to demon-
strate how the roads of the air
terminal were employed to cre-
ate a race course.
The section provides a back-
drop for the viewer to lead them
into the rest of the display fea-
turing the Sebring 12-Hour race

Planning

session held


I Group brings etiquette


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
The Sebring Library has a display case full of race memorabilia
during the month of March.


itself.
The highlight of the display
would be the colors generated
by the 80-plus 1/43 scale
Sebring race cars.
The racers are displayed in
chronological sequence to
allow the viewer to note the
progress of race cars that have
competed at the famous
Sebring circuit from 1955
through 2003.
Previously, these displays
have been 'reserved' for either
the Sebring Ridge or Sebring
Raceway museums.
"I started collecting them
when I moved to Sebring. I
thought it would be easier than
collecting the big ones," said
Ron Johnson, who owns the
scale replicas.
He said that he has had prob-
lems finding the cars, especially
models from the early 1970s to
the 1990s.
"There's a gap from about
1975 to 1990," he said.
Also on display are some of


the playing boards from
Sebring games that were manu-
facturing about the 12-Hour
race.
Library officials said they
hoped the display would allow
both Sebring citizens and visi-
tors to become more familiar
with one of Sebring's greater
institutions.
Carolyn Hesselink also pre-
pared a number of boards that
tie the exhibit into the library
itself through the use of books.
Myers said a lot of the
library's collection of racing
memorabilia has been given to
the Sebring Historical Society,
although they do have "The
Sebring Story," a book written
by original race promoter Alec
Ulmann.
The library is open from 9:30
a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and
Tuesday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. Wednesday through
Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 12
p.m. Saturday and closed
Sunday.


Special to the News-Sun
The National League of
Junior Cotillions a program
of etiquette, character education
and social dance training for
middle and junior high school
students has announced
plans to expand its program in
Florida to include Highlands
County.
Anne Colvin Winters, NLJC
national director said, "We will
be selecting a director for a
local chapter who will receive
complete training and an exclu-
sive territory for expansion."
The organization currently
has active chapters in Charlotte,
Indian River, Orange, Pinellas,
Santa Rosa, Tampa, Volusia and
other communities in Florida.
Laurie Coventry Payne,
director of the NLJC Charlotte
area chapter, said, "This pro-
gram is making a positive
impact on students in our area
and we are delighted to know
that more young people will
have the opportunity for this
vital training."
In today's competitive and
ever changing society, and the
growing trend of the lack of
courtesy and respect in the
schools NLJC is dedicated to
making tools available to regain
a sense of honor, dignity and
respect in the young people.
The purpose of the National
League of Junior Cotillions'
program is to give students
instruction and practice in the
courtesies that make life more
pleasant for them and those
around them. Students actively
learn courtesies through a cre-
ative method employing role-
playing, skits and games.
Standard ballroom and line


dancing is taught using nation-
ally approved top 40 music.
In addition to the usual cour-
tesies connected with dancing,
etiquette and character instruc-
tion are also provided regarding
the following: honor, respect,
ethics, sportsmanship, acknow-
ledgments of gifts, behavior at
cultural and civic events, corre-
spondence, interaction in
groups, introductions, paying
and receiving compliments,
receiving lines, table manners,
instructional dinners, telephone
courtesy and many other area of
social conduct.

for Sebring

Fourth of July
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun '.
SEBRING The 2005
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring is ..
not yet in the books and already
some local residents are turning y,.
their attention to plans for ,-
Independence Day festivities in .
Sebring. .
A group of community lead-
ers met at the Oak Room in the
Country Club of Sebring earlier
this week to discuss the devel-
opment of a "Hometown
Fourth of July" celebration at
the Allen Altvater Cultural
Complex.
Chaired by Highlands Art
League Director of Children's
Charity Patsy Cross, the group
agreed they wanted to build
upon the base created over the
past few years by the Sebring
Jaycees.
The most daunting task will
be the raising of the funds for
the annual pyrotechnics.
"We need to get about
$15,000," said Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association
President Rob Viera, who has
worked with the Jaycees in the
past to coordinate the event.
Suggestions for events that
might be staged as part of the ,.
day's worth of Independence
Day activities include the
revival of the Wild & Wacky,
Rafting Regatta, resurrecting
the Miss Firecracker beauty
pageant and perhaps arranging
for a cross-Lake Jackson swim.
The rafting regatta was
staged in the 1990s by WCAC
Radio. It involved local clubs,
groups and organizations put- k "
ting together novelty watercraft
for competition.
"Actually, the point was just
trying to finish," Viera said.
Sara Hopton of the Young
Professionals pointed to the
possibility of sponsoring the
Miss Firecracker pageant,
which apparently has not beenI
held since the 1920s.
The idea also would be to
invite local clubs and charitableEye
groups to handle concessions
for the day's worth of activity
as fund-raisers for themselves.
"What we're looking for is a
community wide event that will
involve the greater Sebring
area," Cross said.
Groups represented at the
organizational session included
the Highlands Art League, the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, the Sebring His-
torical Society, the city of
Sebring, the Sebring Com-
munity Redevelopment Ag-
ency, the Downtown Sebring
Merchants and Professional
Association and the newly
organized Young Professionals.
The group plans to meet
again on March 24 to further

develop the scope of activities.

NRAC may review road plans


to protect future conservation


Wants county to plan
conservation
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Natural
resource advisors may want the
Florida Department of
Transportation to rethink its 30-
year plan for Highlands County.
At Wednesday's meeting of
the Natural Resources Advisory
Commission, Hilary Swain,
director of Archbold Biological
Station in Venus, said she was
"perturbed," particularly by
plans for a U.S. 27 bypass on
the west side of the county,
which FDOT developed with
the county.
Swain said that much of the
land in that area is high quality
scrub that conservationists
would like to preserve.
She suggested that NRAC
review those road plans at next
month's meeting, and see if
members can come up with
alternatives.


Conservation regularly col-
lides with development and
infrastructure improvements. At
present, 25 percent of the coun-
ty's total land area is under con-
servation. Developing empty
lots or managing conservation
lands could get even harder.
Swain said if the county doesn't
begin to identify sites that
should be preserved, those sites
will be owned, developed, or in
the way of roads in the near
future.
NRAC members spent the
better part of the two-hour
meeting discussing how the
county's conservation trust
fund could help The Nature
Conservancy finish purchasing
lots and parcels in the county.
Right now, the county funds
hired help for The Nature
Conservancy, which then pur-
chases the sites for the state.
Either the trust fund could
help purchase small parcels that
the county can afford or be
leveraged for grants to buy big


parcels and numerous lot of lots
to complete large conservation
areas. Development Services
Director Jim Polatty suggested
NRAC should be deciding
which sites need to be con-
served, rather than how to pay
for them. Swain said that
NRAC members could ask if
the county is willing to jump in
and help pay for sites.
Swain said the county can
get the best "conservation value
for our buck" by completing
conservation areas because it
helps create more manageable
and sustainable habitats.
However, NRAC can't recom-
mend buying large sites,
because the trust fund isn't
large enough.
County Commissioner Edgar
Stokes said the county needs to
get small parcels and the areas
in-between the large parcels.
The state and county can't man-
age those large areas until the
smaller areas are bought.

BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Gwen Tondee, Tres Stephenson and Sharon Keiber have a chat in the newly expanded Cub Sebring. The
larger hospitality suite is just one of the amenities featured at this year's Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.

with a single word -
"demand."
He explained that the Club
Sebring tickets provide more
than just a commanding view of
the raceway. The amenities
include admission all four days,
beverage service, reserved pad-
dock parking, and catered
meals Saturday.
Meanwhile, crews have
been, and continue to be, busy
repairing and revamping the
track's facilities for the fans hnd
the competitors
"We have had to rebuild pret--
ty much 90 percent of all of our
billboards as well as three quar-
ters of our bridges," he said.
That work has been nearly
completed with only the ban-
ners now to be hung. In addi-
tion to the repairs, Stephenson
said there have been two new
billboards added.

for no enforcement authority
- eliminating, employees'
rights to challenge illegal
behavior in court.
Simmons has countered that
his measure is a "fair and equi-
table" implementation of the
constitutional amendment.
"Many people are dema-
goguing about it," Simmons
said. "They're acting like it
does not implement the $6.15
minimum wage which is a
gross misrepresentation."
The part of Simmons' meas-
ure that has drawn the most
controversy is the good faith
exemption.
"That exists in the 'Portal to
Portal Act' in the Fair Labor
Standards Act. That says an
employer that has acted ih good
faith and has made a mistake,
should not be penalized," he
said. "The constitutional
amendment itself says we
should follow the Fair Labor
Standards Act."
Simmons' bill passed the
House judiciary committee and
was modified to some degree.
Simmons said he still must
talk with Speaker of the Florida
House Alan Bense to find out if
it has yet been referred to any
other committee.
"I think it will be on its way
to the floor of the House and I
think it will fare very well," he
said.
In order for the implement-
ing bill to become law,. the
Florida House and Senate will
have to pass identical meas-
ures. The bill then would go to
Governor Jeb Bush for his sig-
nature.

Awards are

rewarding
No question, working for
Impact Awards and
Promotions in Avon Park can
be a lot of fun.
Part of that is the nature of
the business. Everyone is
happy to receive an award or
trophy.
While the pleasure of mak-
ing trophies has stayed the
same, the art of making tro-
phies has changed dramatically
over the years.
When I first arrived, I was
caught by surprise.
I had expected to find elec-
tric drills with itty, bitty drill
bits. I thought metal dust
motes would dance in light
beams, and a sound, hopefully
not too like a dentist drill,
would fill the air.
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Today, engraving is high
tech; done with heat, pressure,
specially treated metals, and
laser beams. There are no drill
bits of any size, no metal dust,
and only a soft whirring sound
made some of the time. It is
very 21st century.
Good thing Doug
Singletary, owner and operator
of Impact, once worked for
NASA as a satellite communi-

Trophy maker



wins big with



business


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Doug
Singletary was born and raised
in Avon Park, graduating from
the high school in 1984.
The U.S. Army took him
away for a while, and he stayed
away a little longer working for
NASA and American Tobacco,
but he's been back home for
years now, and doesn't look to
roam further.
One reason he's content, is
his business, Impact Awards
and Promotions. He formed his
business in 2003 when he
bought the original Impact
Awards from its founder, Linda
Carter, and merged it with a
business he had already estab-
lished, Adventures in
Advertising.
"How many jobs can you
have where you make people
happy?" asked Singletary. "I
get to be creative, and knowing
that a kid is going to get a tro-
phy for playing basketball, or a
retiring teacher will get a
plaque and know that they'll
be missed well, it's good to
be a part of that."
The awards side of business
produces customized trophies
and plaques, while the promo-
tional side of the business pro-
vides personalized items for
companies to give away; things
like insulated mugs, golf tow-
els, key chains, pens or even
higher ticket items, like clocks,
desk sets or leather jotters.
The promotional challenge,


In a sign of how the technology
of the trophy business has
changed, acrylic awards are
now the most popular.

Singletary explained is to
match the right item with the
right company for the right
event at the right price.
For example, stress relief
balls would be a perfect give-
away for a mental health
agency looking to promote its
services, but would send a
wrong message if handed out to
a room full of bankers.
By merging the trophy and
award business with the promo-
tional he can service an entire
spectrum of needs.
Seventy percent of his busi-
ness is done e'ier 1'ihe Internet,
and involves large companies.

AWARDS
Continued from 13A
with the mouse.
I did get to see some of the
machines at work, however,
and modem technology still
amazes me.
For example, Singletary was
working on a plaque, which
called for a large plate to be
engraved with several lines of
text.
First, he sat at the computer
and created a cyber version of
what he wanted, then he
played with different fonts
(letter styles) and arranged and
rearranged the words to find
the best balance.
When he was satisfied with
the look, he placed a blank
metal plate, made of a brass
alloy with a special coating,
into the laser engraver.
The engraver, which is like
a printer only it writes on
metal or plastic, is a large open
box with the engraving mecha-
nism running across the top.
Like an old fashioned type-
writer carriage, it moves back
and forth, programmed by the
computer.
The computer fires the
engraver every time there is
supposed to be a point of text,
activating the laser beam,
which has been deflected by a
series of mirrors, through a
lens, which directs it to the
material to be engraved.
While the laser beam is run
sideways back and forth across
the plate, the entire mechanism
also moves down it, so when
you look into the box and
watch the process, you see
words emerge into being, from
the top down, kind of like the
Cheshire Cat in "Alice in
Wonderland," only in reverse.
It doesn't take long, only a
few minutes.
Then the plate is attached to
the trophy or plaque, some-
times using screws, sometimes
using two sided tape that is
made expressly for awards.
There is another space age
machine, which uses a com-
pletely different kind of
process, called sublimation.' Ift
can make one color; or full -
color identification tags, for
instance.
Again, all the designing is
done on a computer, and
instructions sent to a second
machine, in this case, a normal
printer which has been modi-
fied to work with special ink
and paper, and is the size of a
small toaster oven.
It produces a backwards
image on the paper which is
cut to fit an epoxy base, that
will be the actual ID tag.
The printed paper is placed
face down on the base, and
both are put into another
machine that is sort of like a
Cuban sandwich press, only it
applies a heck of a lot more
pressure, and is usually set at
400 degrees Fahrenheit.
The heat turns the special
ink into a gas, which perme-
ates the epoxy, and becomes
permanent as they cool. Then
a fastener is attached to the
back.
While I watched, Singletary
made over a half dozen ID
tags for the Daughters of
American Revolution, in well
less than a half an hour. The
miracles of modern science.
In the flush of racing excite-
ment, Christopher Tuffley will
be working with Mid-Florida
Septic next week. Any business
person who has a job they
would like to spotlight in the
Tuffin'It With Tuffley feature,
call 385-6155, ext. 528.


Hannum, Crean join


Coldwell Banker


Both women

are longtime

residents of

Highlands
Coldwell Banker Highlands
Properties has announced that
Realtor Marie Hannum has
recently joined its north office
as a sales associate, specializ-
ing in real estate sales through-
out Highlands County and
Suzanna Harvill Crean joined
the team of Realtors.
Hannum's family has resided
in Sebring for more than 50
years. Her knowledge of the
county and commitment to her
customers' needs will make
their real estate experience a
pleasant one.
Hannum was a top producing
Realtor at the Northern Virginia
Association of Realtors, win-
ning several top sales awards
for the Greater Metropolitan
Washington, D.C. Broker
Council before she came home
to Sebring to live and work in
this community.
"We are honored to have
Marie join our team of profes-
sionals," said broker/owner Jim
Otterman. "She looks forward
to bringing her skills to the buy-

But, Singletary remembers his
roots and is happy to work with
anyone, no matter how small
the order.
He also takes great pride in
being able to produce just about
any request in house.
With five computers, and an
array of highly expensive, high-
ly technical equipment, he can
work in metal, plastic or acrylic
with ease, allowing only a three
or four day turn around for
most orders.
The "work requires -a great
deal of specialized knowledge,
and an artist's eye.
Singletary compared the
work to that done by graphic
artists who work in advertising.
The design is done on a com-
puter, which then transmits
instructions to the machines
which do the engraving. Almost
nothing is done by hand any


ers and sellers in Highlands
County."
Crean has lived in Highlands
County most of her life and has
been a familiar face around the
county as the Sebring outside
plant engineer for Sprint for
many years. She is a graduate
of Florida State University and
worked for NASA as a techni-
cal writer, editor and illustrator
before joining Sprint.
Crean brings an extensive
knowledge of properties and
real estate development
throughout Highlands County
to her position with Coldwell
Banker Highlands Properties
and is committed to making
each of her customers' real
estate experience a pleasant
one. She will be greeting cus-
tomers at the firm's newest
office at 6223 U.S. 27 North at
the entrance to Sun 'N Lakes
(next to Subway).
"We are pleased to have
Suzanna join our team,"
Otterman said, "1 know that she
will provide excellent service to
her customers."
Contact Hannum at 402-1110
or marie.hannum@coldwell-
banker:com and visit coldwell-

more, although, rarely there are
plaques with text burned direct-
ly into the wood.
"I love that smell," said
Singletary, "especially when
it's cherry wood."
It takes a long time to learn
the graphics package, so work-
ing in the field requires a great
deal of experience or training.
"It's not like McDonald's
where you can learn the job in
two or three weeks," Singletary
said. "It's not rocket science,
but there's a lot of little things
you have to know, and it can be
very expensive when you make
an error." .. ...... ..
That means good help can be
hard to find, so the job typical-
ly pays well, around $12 an
hour to start, with experienced
talent commanding much more.

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Mike Sawyer adjusts his camera in his newly opened studio, Mike Sawyer Photography in downtown
Sebring.


Retired firefighter sparks


up a photography business


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Mike Sawyer has been focused
since the age of 8.
He's enjoyed his camera hobby so much, that
after 31 years with the Florida Division of
Forestry, he's now opened a photography studio.
"I love it," Sawyer said. "If I hadn't tried this, I
know I'd always wish I had."
Sawyer has learned to keep his cool when tak-
ing photographs of children.
"I enjoy people. I especially love children and
all their differences. Capturing the spirit of their
personality at a magic moment is what it's all
about," Sawyer said. "But when working with
kids sometimes you have to be calm and collect-
ed. I guess firefighting served me well. Because
if you get excited, you're in trouble."
Sawyer has been screened by the department
of Children and Family Services, which means he
is approved to be around kids. "That's an impor-
tant feature that insures children's safety,"
Sawyer said, pulling out an album showing a
variety of child dancers in costumes, showing
each one's personality plus the action ... some-,
times ballet's slow graceful movements, tap
dancers, or high-energy aerobics.
"Once in a while a person comes in and wants
an ex-spouse removed from a photo. Of course I
do that, but I much prefer removing other dis-
tractions like poles an wires from background


shots," Sawyer said. "I also shoot passports,
advertisements or business card photos."
Weddings are an essential ingredient, whether
in the studio or out. And Sawyer's wedding pack-
age is priced at $600.
"One portrait shoot that was fun was of a
young girl with her surfboard. We went down by
the pier to be able to shoot a water background,"
Sawyer said. "You don't often see someone car-
rying a surfboard in Sebring. That was fun."
The photography studio is located in the his-
toric Buckeye Building, which suffered extensive
hurricane damage and required remodeling.
"There's a new wood floor, paint, and ceiling. It
was lots of work. I wanted to create a Victorian-
style atmosphere in keeping with the building's
style," Sawyer said.
"It's just me and my son working here. He's
still in school, but he's my right and left hand,"
Sawyer said. Although Sawyer grew up during
the older-style cameras and darkroom era, and
enjoyed that, today he has the most up-to-the-
minute digital cameras and equipment. "It's
amazing how things have changed. A person can
come in for a shoot, and as I'm photographing,
they can see it there on the TV," Sawyer said.
"And I can correct anything right then."
Mike Sawyer Photography is at 112 North
Ridgewood Drive, just off the Circle. He's open
frotn 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday
nad by appointment. Call 385-9991 for details.

Youth academy

deserves accolades

The Avon Park Youth Academy has something to brag
about: It recently received a nearly perfect rating from
the American Correctional Association.
The score, a 98.9 out of a possible 100, speaks to the
academy's commitment to excellence.
So does the fact that it came from the ACA, which
evaluates correctional facilities when it is invited to. The
fact that the youth academy didn't have to subject itself
to the review but it did is a sign that director Pete
Zeegers and his staff take quality seriously.
Troubled youth are often seen as "the problem" in this
country by people who don't seem to know "the solu-
tion." Although the academy exists to incarcerate juve-
nile offenders, it strives to be more than a detention cen-
ter. That's one of the reasons for its high rating.
It's true that teens will commit crimes because they
haven't had the education or training to apply their ener-
gies to positive endeavors. The academy gives its teens
options it trains them in graphic design, cooking, hor-
ticulture, auto mechanics, auto detailing and more. It
helps young people develop skills they can be proud of.
It's also true that some teens commit crimes because of
youthful naivety. They want money fast or they think
crime is exciting until they find themselves behind bars,
waiting to make that first appearance before a judge. This
is when they begin to discover the places their bad choic-
es are going to take them.
Part of the youth academy program is to reverse that
trend by showing teens where good choices lead. Good
behavior gets rewarded, a tactic that can be as useful in
turning criminals around as punishment. Business train-
ing programs operate like businesses, so that the teens
can see how labor translates into money. Community
service projects teach them the value of being good citi-
zens of fitting in instead of hanging out.
In the long run, the academy saves money. The Federal
Bureau of Prisons says the cost to incarcerate an inmate
is $22,000 per year. And according to Reclaiming
Futures, a non-profit group that operates pilot programs
for youth offenders, a teen who drops out of high school
pnd becomes involved in drugs and crime can cost soci-
pty up to $2.3 million over the course of his or her life-
time.-
By comparison, the value of a productive citizen is
immeasurable. We commend the academy for trying to
build them one child at a time.

'If the Bill of Rights had intended an exception to
the freedom of speech in order to combat this
malign proclivity of the officeholder to agree with
those who agree with him, and to speak more with
his supporters than his opponents, it would surely
have said so.'


ANTONIN SCALIA, U.S. Supreme Court justice, 2003


SA warrior

now rests
I met June about six or seven
years ago when she and her
husband Ed first moved to the
area and became members of
our congregation. June was a
marvelous lady, upbeat, with a
sense of humor and a lovely
I singing voice.
Those who saw her on the
street or about her day probably
did not guess that she was
engaged in a long battle with
cancer. For 18 years June
fought the disease, undergoing
surgery and treatments. She
was able to keep a bright side
through most of it, cheerful and
refusing to feel sorry for her-
self. She was active in the work
of the church and our Ladies
Bible Class.
June was a singer. I loved lis-
tening to her as we sang during
services. She often sang tenor,
and did so beautifully. She once
told me I had a good alto voice,
but I could never sing as easily
as she could. Let me put it this
way: I sing. June was a singer.
June was a good friend to
me. I remember being upset
about something that had hap-
pened one day and calling her
on my cell phone. She comfort-
ed me as I sat in my car sobbing
in'a Wal-Mart parking lot
She could make this wonder-
ful chocolate dessert. Knowing
my love for chocolate, she once
made one of these things just
for me. It was huge, a delicious
layered dessert in a glass trifle
bowl. It took me several days
with the help of my family to
eat it all, and I enjoyed every
bite.
When I announced in our
Ladies Bible Class that I was
going through problems with
my siblings, June made a point
of-sharinglthe problems she had
gone through with her sibling
and encouraged me that, in the
J end, it had turned out well.
This was while she was dealing
with her last fight with disease.
Even though she was going
through so much in her own
life, her heart had room to
embrace my cares and reach
out to me.
June's last fight was a hard
one fluid in her lungs made
breathing difficult and cancer
weakened her. While she was
in the hospital for treatment,
her husband Ed passed away
without warning. We mourned
his loss, and I knew it would be
harder for June to fight. She
had long been ready to go
home; she had waited out of
love for Ed.
Early last week this brave
warrior laid down her burden
and went home to' rest. The
tears I cry are not for her I
know she is so much happier
now. I cry for my fellow broth-
ers and sisters in Christ, June's
daughter, who has lost both
father and mother in so short a
time, and a lot for myself.
June taught me that bad
things did not have to mean
you had a bad attitude. You
could look outside yourself and
the things that tried to drag you
down and see sunshine. You
could be going through the
worst time of your life, but you
could lay aside your sorrow
and reach out to someone who
was hurting.
June also helped me to put
my problems in perspective
when they threatened to make
me crazy. If she could make
lemonade out of the lemons her
health handed her, what made
me think I couldn't when my
problems were so small in
comparison?
Somehow I imagine June
entering Heaven with a smile
on her lips and a song pouring
out. While my world is a little
darker with her loss, surely
Heaven will be a little brighter
with her presence.
Rest well, dear June. You


have undoubtedly earned it.
May I remember your bright
outlook when things look dark.

Schock treatment

Hardee's Drew Schock no-hits Avon Park at Head Field


By SCOWT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK There's not a much
better way to pick up your first win of
the season than thrio\ ine a no-hitter at
one of the most historic high school
fields in the-state against one of the
most successful programs in history .
That's just what Hardee left-hander
Drew Schock did Friday night, domi-
nating the Avon Park Red Devils at
Charles R. Head Field to lead the
Wildcats to a 5-0 win in the District 10-
3A opener for both teams.
It was the first no-hitter thrown


against Avon Park, which has eight
state championships and over 1,000
wins, since Sebring's Jerry Heston -
also a lefty did it at Firemen's Field
in 1975.
It also may have been tdie tiri time
the Deilsk \%ere ever n0o-hit-at Head
Field, a place where Babe Ruth once
played.
Schock, a senior, allowed only two
Devils on base, both on walks. The
first came in the third inning and the
second was with two outs in the sev-
enth, but Schock promptly picked him
off to end the game.

This Sunday, Team ADT

scheduled to
appear today
on "Wind

Lehto, the
2004 ALMS

won the 12

a BMW V12
LMR.
With teammates Marco
Werner and Tom Kristensen,
Lehto is looking to achieve
his second Sebring victory
and to give Team ADT
Champion Racing their first
Sebring victory this year.


"I was going to pick him off any-
way," Schock said of the walk, which
he claimed wasn't caused by being
nervous as he closed in on his first
career no-hitter ..
"' I knew I had (a no-hitter), but I did-
n't pa\ attenuon to Ii." he said. adding
that most of his pitches were right on
the money. "My fastball was hanging
up a little bit, but other than that
(everything was working)."
Calvin Brutus is considered the ace
of the Hardee (3-3 overall) pitching

Lake Placid


extends win


streak to 7
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID All of those
innings spent in relief are finally coming
in handy.
Lake Placid's Brandon Bierman, who
totaled the second most innings for the
Dragons last year coming out of the
bullpen, made sure the Dragons would
get away with their closest win of the sea-
son, tossing a three-hit shutout and strik-
ing out five in a 1-0 district win over
Mulberry Friday night.
"Brandon did a great job for us
tonight," head coach Dan Coomes said. "I
wouldn't be surprised if he comes up to
me ready to pitch next game. He's got a
rubber arm and when he's throwing well,
his fastball has a lot of
movement and he's hard to Lake Placid
hit." 1
To date, Lake Placid's
best baseball season came Mulberry
in 1960 when the Dragons 0U
went 9-3. After starting 7-0,
however, the green-and-
white are on pace to shatter that record
and now stand on top of District 10-3A at
2-0.
"We're just not making those mistakes
that set up big innings," Coomes said.
"We're not giving up the six- and seven-
run innings that we used to, and that's
been the difference."
Mulberry did, however, create the
potential for that one big inning in the
fourth when Josh Siebneler led off with a
one-hopper to the right-field fence for a
triple. But when Geo Blanco followed
with a shallow fly ball to right, Alex
Delgado nailed Siebneler at home for a
double pla\.
lMulberry continued to rjll in that
inning, loading the bases on a hit and two
walks. Bierman settled down, however,
striking out the next batter he saw and the
Panthers never reached base again.
Lake Placid's only run came prior to
that, in the bottom of the first inning.

Tickets sales for 12
Hours at record pace
Gates open at 7 a.m.
Wednesday for the 53rd run-
ning of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring, America's premier
sports car endurance race.
"With a world class field
highlighted by an incredible
entry in the GTI category, its
not surprising tickets sales are
nearly 10 percent ahead of last
year's record attendance,"
Sebring President and General
Manager Tres Stephenson said.
Hundreds of fans are already
lined up at the front gates for
the opening of the track. The 12
Hours of Sebring starts at 10:45
am on Saturday, culminating
four days of racing action on
the legendary 3.7-mile Sebring
circuit.
"There are so many big sto-
ries this year," added
Stephenson. "The debut of
Aston Martin and Maserati,
Frank Biela trying to become
the first four-time winner, the
rivalry between Audi and the
Dyson Lolas ... it is going to be
a great show."
As America's most fan-
friendly motorsports facility,


Sebring offers unique attrac-
tions, varied entertainment, and
opportunities to get up close
and personal with the cars and
stars of the ALMS.
Gallery of Legends pays
tribute to Jaguar's 1955
12 Hours of Sebring win
British car manufacturers
have a storied history at
Sebring International Raceway.
Jaguar, MG, Aston Martin,
Triumph, Austin-Healey and
Bentley are among those that
have challenged the famous
Sebring circuit over the past
five decades.
Perhaps the famous of these
manufacturers is Jaguar, which
won the Sebring 12-hour clas-
sic 50 years ago, the first and
only victory by Jaguar at
America's premier, sports car
race. To celebrate the anniver-
sary, several historic Jaguars
will be on display at Sebring's
Gallery of Legends in the pad-
dock during RaceWeek.
A former Briggs
Cunningham D-type Jaguar and
the Group 44 Jaguar XJR-7
prototype are among several
historic Jaguars that will be on
display throughout the Sebring
event.
The legacy of great British
manufacturers continues this
year at Sebring as Aston Martin
returns to racing, making its
competition debut of the new
DB9, just one of several new
cars debuting at Sebrings.

Mulberry hurler Josh
Thorton, who only gave up
three hits himself, loaded the
bases with three walks to P.J.
Milisci, Brandon Bierman and
Brent Bierman.
Thorton then fired one about
50 feet, the ball skipping away
for a wild pitch to allow Milisci
to trot home.
"Our aggressiveness on the
bases really got us the run,"
Coomes said. "We love to run
and you could tell they were
prepared to hold us on, and you


can't really run when they're
getting (the pitch) home in
under a second."
Milisci would walk again in
the third inning and capture
Lake Placid's only stolen base,
but was left 90 feet away from
home plate when a strikeout
ended the inning.
"We didn't swing the bats
well tonight and I don't know
what happened," Coomes said
of his team's three-hit perform-
ance. "I don't know if it was
because we weren't seeing the
ball well or what, but I guess
we're going to have nights like
that."

staff, but Friday night he did his
part as a designated hitter -
ba g for Schock by lining
ai solo home run to left in the
first inning and then following
Bryant Shumard's single with a
run-scoring double deep to
right-center to drive in Hardee's
first two runs.
Brutus picked up his third
RBI with a single in the fourth,
shortly after Michael Mahoney
had made it 4-0 with a two-run
home run to left-center.
That hitting performance
would have been the highlight
of just about any other game,
but Schock stole the show
Friday night.
"I've never been no-hit in
high school as a coach," Avon
Park head coach Mort Jackson
said. "That's a new experience
for me."
Scott Green threw three
innings of scoreless relief for
Avon Park (3-3), pitching his
way out of a bases-loaded jam
in the sixth in the only highlight
for the home team, but the
Devils couldn't find a way to
get to Schock.
He struck out 11 and retired
14 in a row during one stretch
- nine of them on strikeouts -
and kept the Devils, who also
made four errors, from getting
anything even close to a hit.
"He did a great job," Jackson
said. "You've got to take your

but, hey, I'm not taking any-
thing away from him. We
couldn't do nothing with him.
He made us look bad. They've
got a good team. I've said all
along they had.
"They've got a good left-
handed pitcher, too."
Hardee coach Steve Rewis
said Schock didn't pitch much
last season, but has turned into
a solid No. 2 starter this year.
"He's stepped up into our
Friday night guy this year and
turned into a pretty nice compli-
ment for Calvin," Rewis said.
"Drew seemed to be in con-


trol all night. His breaking ball
was outstanding. I've seen his
fastball better a couple times,
but I've never seen his breaking
ball that sharp.
"Drew's worked hard in the
last year to get to this point. It's
good to see it pay off."
Rewis said anytime you can
get a win in Avon Park is a good
night, and to get a no-hitter to
boot was more than could be
expected.
"We knew coming in Drew
was going to do the job," he
said. "We just didn't know it
was going to be that good of a
job."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Trust, prayer

and wonder
A week from now, spring
begins.
I love springtime with its
new chartreuse buds poking
out of tree branches. I'm
amazed by tiny plants push-
ing through the soil so
frail, yet hopeful. And I'm
energized by the nesting
activities of the birds.
Springtime means life and
hope an awakening from
winter dormancy. In Florida,
we have green and colorful
plants year round. However,
there is a noticeable differ-
ence in the lushness of the
landscape when spring
arrives punctuated by
mowers revving up to keep
pace with fast growing
grass.
Flowers that are only
meant for warmer tempera-
tures are ready to smile at us
from empty spots in flower
beds; while flowering bush-
es burst forth with more
blooms. The season changes
here maybe more subtle,
but they are still visible.
Sometimes the seasons of
our lives bring changes that
are as drastic as the vibran-
cy of fall or the starkness of
winter's long months in the
north. Other times, like the
south, life's seasons just
seem to flow into one anoth-
er. It's the ebb and flow of
nature.
I see this in the realiza-
tion of the word, "faith."
Last year, I sensed the Lord
giving my husband, Ken,
and me the watchword of
faith for the year. And look-
ing back on 2004, faith was
indeed tried and tested.
This year much like
springtinie' freshniiess that
~ is rooted in the stability of
God a trinity of hope is
budding from faith: trust,
prayer and wonder.
Faith isn't stagnant, but
ever putting forth new
shoots to help us grow
stronger in our dependence
on God, who is our suffi-
ciency and our supplier; to
encourage us to learn to lis-
ten and speak his language;
and to never stop marveling
at the One who loves us so
much.
As this year is unfolding,
I'm trying to depend more
on God than my own ideas.
I don't mean that I don't
think and plan. God certain-
ly expects me to be respon-
sible and creative. But I'm
trying not to run ahead; to
be more sensitive to his
leading. That's not always
easy, but it is possible.
Then I'm noticing that
dependence on God requires
me to pray more and be in
his Word so that I can rec-
ognize when he is speaking
to me. If I don't do that, I
easily drown out his voice
with my activity.
And, finally, when
dependence and prayer are
nurtured, I, find myself in
awe and wonder of how real
God is in every area of my
life: the concerns, the plans,
the hopes and the dreams.
As he unfolds his plans for
us, we can't help but
respond with the Psalmist,
"The Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our
eyes." (Psalm 118: 23, NIV)
Each day is truly a gift
from God to rejoice in and
be glad. When surrendered
to him each morning in
trust, prayer and wonder, a
garden of blessings awaits.
Selah.

Cruising down


Spectacular
Yangtze River
Cruise to change
with opening of
New Dam
U.This is the second story in a
two-part series.

By PATRICIA POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING

two of her eight
years in China on
the Yangtze River,
working as a
cruise director for Victoria
Cruises. She lived on board
several of its 13 popular luxury
ships, which traveled constant-
ly between Chong qing and
Shanghai.
The Yangtze River is the
third longest river in the world,
after the Nile and the Amazon,
winding 3,900 miles from west
to east through 10 provinces in
China. It supports a third of the
country's people and fertilizes
its vast land. It's fertile alluvial
plains produce great amounts
of rice, wheat, cotton, tobacco
and silk. Approximately 350
million people inhabit the
region of the Yangtze.
Chong qing, where Wilkes
lived, is a popular tourist desti-
nation because it is located in
the spectacular mountain area
on the upper reaches of the
river. The city is the start or
end point for most river cruis-
es.
This region contains the
most scenic features of the
cruise, with imposing mountain
ranges, unbroken ravines, wild
rapids and picturesque land-
scapes.
Along this 130-mile stretch,
the river passes through the
world-famous Three Gorges.
In the Qutang Gorge, the
river is less than 400 feet wide,
with sheer cliffs on either side.
In the Wu Gorge, mountains
rise to a height of 1,600 to
3,300 feet. The Xiling Gorge is
known for its sky high walls,
often shrouded in mists and the
swift and swirling water
beneath them.
In Xiling Gorge, China's
largest engineering project
since the Great Wall the
Three Gorges Dam is under
way. This dam, which will be
the largest in the world, is
being built to control flooding
and provide enough hydroelec-
tricity to power most of central
and eastern China.
Construction began in 1995
and is scheduled for comple-
tion in 2009. The dam will
measure about 600 feet and
will be 1.5 miles wide.
Avon Park residents Duane
and Norma Franz witnessed
the changes taking place in the

RIVER


PATRICIA POND/News-Sun
Norma Franz (left) and Duane Franz, of Avon Park, admire a Mah Jong game with Chinese characters brought back from China by Dawn
Wilkes of Sebring (center). The Franz'slhave traveled to China twice. Their second trip was plannedlspecifically to take the Yangtze Riser
cruise to see the Three Gorges before the area is flooded b. a new dam in 2009.


Three Gorges area when they
took this cruise in 2000. The
Franz's thought the cruise was
"great" and Duane was
impressed with the scope of the
project.
"We could see the steps of
the canal where ships will pass
through locks when the gorge
is flooded," Duane said.
"When we looked up on the
walls of the gorge, we could
see where. the water levels will
be, 'way overhead.' "
The couple had visited
China in 1996, but did not take
the cruise on that trip.
I "When we heard about the
dam project, we decided we
wanted to see the Three Gorges
before the area was flooded.
We returned just to take the
Yangtze River cruise," Norma
explained.
. The Franz's also took a
small boat tour into channels
leading off the river, to get a
close-up look at the three
gorges.
"The experience was very


different," Norma said. "We
went through deep canyons
where the banks were very
high."
The Franz's also noted that
the Chinese government is
already building villages to
move the people above the
water line once the valley is
flooded.
The couple enjoyed the daily
stops in different ports along
the Yangtze; sightseeing, shop-
ping and sampling Chinese
food. Their favorite food was
the little Chinese dumplings
with different fillings in them.
t'You see the way people
live in their little villages along
the river. It makes you wonder
if the people in these villages
even understand what is really
happening," Norma said quiet-
ly.
The different port stops and
the ever-changing scenery
along the Yangtze also capti-
vated Wilkes throughout her
two years of cruising.
"The thing I loved most


about it was being in a differ-
ent city every day. It was excit-
ing always changing and yet
familiar." She explained that as
she got to know the cities
along the river, she found her
favorite restaurants, shops and
places to visit. She made many
friends from the ship's staff
and the different tour leaders.
She still stays in touch with
some of those who live in
Chong qing.
And if things got a bit too
routine, "new passengers
would freshen everything up
and make it different again,"
Wilkes remembered. She loved
being able to meet so many
different people and to intro-
duce them to the wonders of
China.
While Wilkes said her posi-
tion was "one of the best pay-
ing jobs in China," she put in
long days preparing and direct-
ing entertainment for the pas-
sengers, who were mostly
American and British tourists.
A typical day began at 6 a.m.


and ended about 11 p.m.
"I got two days off per
cruise, which lasted 19 days,"
she said. 'I had one free day in
Shanghai and one in Chong
qing."
Like the Franz's and many
others who have been thrilled
with the scenery in China's
Three Gorges area, Wilkes
wondered about the changes
that the completion of the dam
will have on the region and its
people. The dramatic height of
the cliffs will be lost when the
water rises, but the Yangtze's
many tributaries will become
more accessible. These inner
regions will be developed and
visitors will be able to enjoy
similar scenery on the smaller
rivers.
"People will still be able to
cruise, but the views will be
different. We don't know yet
what effects all the changes
will have, whether it will be
better for the area or not. But if
anyone can pull it off, the
Chinese can," Wilkes said.


FCAA Steppers come home winners


By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
AVON PARK The South Florida
Community College Reach Out Program
and Family Christian Association of
America recently attended the Fourth
Annual Taco Bell/Dunedin High School
Steppin Up Step-off Extravaganza in
Dunedin for competition.
The groups took approximately 50


students and 12 parents. The FCAA
Diamond Steppers high school team and
the FCAA Sista Steppers middle school
team entered the competition in Dunedin
for the first time. The high school com-
petition included 12 teams throughout
Florida and the middle school category
included about eight teams throughout
Florida.
While competing at Dunedin, the


middle school placed first and advanced
to the finals at the Sixth Annual African
American Heritage Celebration in Largo
the same weekend.
The FCAA Sista Steppers middle
school team won the competition for its
category at Largo. The teams' message
of stepping against violence, sex and
drugs won the hearts of the crowd of
about 800.


Also, the FCAA Diamond Steppers
performed at South Florida Community
College when the college commemorat-
ed Black History Month recently by
tracing the inheritance of African-
American history through speech, food,
song and dance. The program was spon-
sored by the College Reach Out Program
and SFCC's African-American
Association.

ARTS & LEISURE


Once you've planned

the layout of your

yard, planting and

care become a snap


You are probably
wondering why I am
doing this series on
Florida Yards and
Neighborhood pro-
grams.
In discussions
with people who
come into the
Master Gardeners'
office I find that a
lot of them have
never given any
thought to what the
fertilizers, pesticides
and other things we
us in our gardens

and yards can do to our water-
ways, wildlife and the beauti-
ful butterflies. I personally
found it informative. I hope
you do too.
Last week we discussed
preparing a land-use plan.
Today we will talk about mak-
ing a landscape plan and carry-
ing it out.
Once you have made your
land-use sketch, add the land-
scape plan. Determine the type
of plants you want in different
locations. Draw where you
want trees, shrubs, ground
cover and flowering plants.
Remember to keep plants at
least four feet from buildings
to allow for growth and to
make house maintenance easi-
er.
To aid in selecting particular
species, note the ultimate plant
height you desire in each area.
Group plants according to
their water needs so irrigation
can be applied more efficiently
and plants will be healthier.
Incorporate the irrigation
plan, if one is desired. In-
ground irrigation systems are
not necessary in every land-
scape, particularly if drought
resistant plants are used. While
the plants are becoming estab-
lished in the yard, a temporary
watering system is convenient
and usually warrants the effort.
Select plants and other land-
scape materials. Remember to
consider maintenance require-
ments, the limitations of your
site and wildlife value when
selecting plants.
Implement your plan. Buy
quality plants. Keep in mind
that proper planting techniques
are important in establishing
healthy plants. Allow enough
space for each plant to grow to
maturity.
Maintain your new land-
scaping. This includes proper
irrigating, fertilizing, compost-
ing, pruning, mowing,
mulching and integrated pest

management.
The more thor-
ough you are with
planning, the less
you will have to
worry about mainte-
nance.
Remember, to
water efficiently,
fertilize appropri-
ately and control
yard pests responsi-
bly. These are all part
of the the Florida
Neighborhood Yards
concept of protecting
our environment


through proper landscape
maintenance.
. Last of all, enjoy your land-
scaping! Photograph the evo-
lution of your Florida yard and
share the pictures, let us learn
from your experience share
your knowledge with others.
We in the Master
Gardener's Office would love
to hear of your success with
your Florida Yard. Visit our
office at 4509 George Blvd. in
Sebring.
Next week's column will
conclude this series by dis-
cussing the nine principles of

An inspirational thought
K Galatians 5:7 read in the KJV,
''te did run ivell; who did hinder
you that ye should not obey the
truth?" Now look at that same
scripture in the NCV bible, it
reads, "You were running a good
race. Who stopped youl from
following the true wtay?" The
assignment given to you from the
Lord to do, only you can do it. Now let me ask you a
few questions. Who stopped your from fulfilling your
assignment? Who got in your way? No one or
nothing is big or bad enough to stop you from an
assignment the Lord has placed on your life.
'Whatever your assi.gntmient may be. voi got to e\ant
it bad enough t go after it. Don't let an' tiling stop
'oiu. The decision to make a difference and goo on is
yours. \our level of determinqfion determines hoiw' far
you go. There are times-you will have to use the
process of elimination. Life may sometimes inv'oli't a
detour, if that's you're caisejust change direction and
keep going. Keep in mind Psaln4S-:Ill. "For the Lord
God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and
glory: no good thing with he withLhold from them that
Walk upright." Stay in thi4, rra and know thle outcome
is worth the trip. Be enbmo Ced! \,

Travelogue cruises Europe's great rivers


SEBRING "Cruising Europe's Great
Rivers" will be shown at 5 p.m. Thursday at
the Sebring Civic Center. This is the sixth
travel documentary in the Kiwanis Club of
Sebring's Travel and Adventure Film
Series.
The narrator, Clint Denn, has had a var-
ied career in photography, acting, travel and
writing. This trip took him 14 days to com-
plete, and he traveled aboard a luxurious
yacht.
For 2,000 years the waterways of Europe
have historically been the byways of com-
merce and trade routes, the sources of rich-
es, and the seats of power where crossroads
were established.
Featured in the travelogue is the
Amadeus Cruise route, which traverses
three great rivers across five countries.
The adventure begins in the Dutch city of
Amsterdam with its great port, unique
architecture, 16th Century churches and
merchant houses.
The cruise travels southward, down the
north-flowing Rhine River, where every
picturesque bend, hamlet and castle has a
story to be told. On the Rhine.River are

Cologne, Koblenz, Rudesheim and the
Rhine River Gorge.
Along the Main River are Miltenberg,
Wertheim and Werzburg, "Pearl of the
Romantic Road." At the Main-Danube
Canal is enchanting Bamberg. After
descending through the canal's stair-step
locks, Denn captures Bavarian folk music
at Berching and Regensburg, a historical
medieval city. Salzberg is the city of "The
'Sound of Music."
Denn then continues along the Danube to
Melk, with its Benedictine abbey and to
purnstein, with the castle prison of Richard
the Lion Heart. Vienna is the "City of


Music." Bratislava is the pride of Slovakia.
After serving in the U.S. Navy, Denn
became a senior aquatic specialist and chief
diving officer for Los Angeles County. He
is an award-winning cinematographer for
his work above and below the water.
As an underwater motion picture and still
photo consultant in Hollywood, he is an
authority on all aspects of underwater
work. He has designed specialized equip-
ment and has caught, caged and film
sharks. In one adventure, he rode a record
42-foot-long whale shark.
His many talents have cast him as dive
master, boat master, actor, water cine-
matographer has brought recognition from
many sources. Denn has blended these tal-
ents and years of diversified experience
with love of travel and his avid interest in
people and their cultures.
Tickets are $7 at the door. Reserved seat-
ing is available for ticket holders. For

Author's first book is study of 'Spiritual Gifts'


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING
A bout a year ago,
Sebring author
Timothy K.
Williams published
his first book, "The Spiritual
Gifts: Part 1" through Xulon
Press.
The comprehensive 419-
page study manual explains the
spiritual gifts as defined by
Christian teachings. It tells peo-
ple how to recognize and devel-
op the spiritual gifts God
intends for them to have.
Williams said the book came
from "a vision and an inspira-
tion" that he received while
attending Regent University
Divinity School in Virginia
Beach, Va. Later, he developed
a study manual on the topic for
The Lord's Sentinel Fellowship
in Lake Placid, a ministry
founded and operated by the
Rev. Juanita Folsom.
Being convinced that many
books on spiritual gifts were
shallow or too brief, Williams
sat down to write his own.
"1 felt it was a calling of
God," Williams said.
Williams believes that a
majority of Christians are not
going forth in their ministries
today or being adequately
equipped to develop their true
calling in God.
That observation came from
his own experience. After earn-
ing a bachelor's degree in
chemistry from Florida State
University, Williams changed
gears by earning a master's
degree in theology at Regent
University and then being
steered toward teaching.
"The book came from my
own personal experience of not
really seeing myself and then

What: Book signing by Timothy
K. Williams, author of 'The
Spiritual Gifts, Part 1'

feeling God's calling for me to
be a teacher. It has taken me
awhile to see that."
Williams said he wants peo-
ple to know that spiritual gifts
are not given according to indi-
vidual abilities.
"We can't look to our person-
alities to know which gifts we
will receive," he said. "Spiritual
gifts are not given according to
who we are in the flesh but who
we are in the Spirit."
He also believes that some
kinds of spiritual gifts, which
theologians call the ascension
gifts, are bestowed on women
as well as men. Some denomi-
nations believe that these types
of gifts being evangelists,
prophets, pastors and teachers
- are the exclusive property of
men.
Williams believes that it is
important for Christians to ful-
fill their calling and destiny in
God. That comes from obedi-
ence from being faithfully
committed to doing what God
has called each person to do.
"The Spiritual Gifts" consists
of 12 chapters, beginning with
an explanation of "The Spiritual
Gifts" in chapter one. After that,
readers have the basis for
understanding the other chap-
ters in the book and do not need
to read them in any particular
order, Williams said.
Chapters deal with such top-
ics as "The Importance of


The



SPIRITUAL





GIFTS


Cover art
Timothy K. William's 'The Spiritual Gifts: Part 1' is a comprehen-
sive study of the spiritual gifts from a Christian perspective.


Studying the Spiritual Gifts,"
"The Ascension Gifts of
Christ," "The Functional Gifts
of God" and "Discovering Your
Spiritual Gifts." Chapters also
cover the roles of teachers, pas-
tors, evangelists, prophets,
apostles and those called to
serve.
Each chapter is divided into
brief subsections and includes
detailed references from the
Bible and other sources as well
as explanations of the Greek
meaning of certain well-known
biblical terms.
Now, along with marketing


his book, Williams is putting
together study materials for his
home church, Living Waters
Church of God. He is also in
discussions to make a video
series based on the book.
Copies of "The Spiritual
Gifts" can be purchased at
Blessings Christian Stores in
Sebring for $20 each and on the
Internet at http://www.xulon-
press.com.
Williams will be signing
copies at Blessings Christian
Stores, 2151 U.S. 27 North,
from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday,
March 26.
