Rains clear for Sebring's 53rd Race Day


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It was a bright, clear
sunny day for the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring.
After Thursday's activities were all but
washed out by a daylong downpour, the
weather cleared Friday as fans made up for
lost time setting up their campsites and
preparing for the 53rd running of the
endurance classic.
As the track came alive on Race Day,
competitors from the American Le Mans
Series took practice laps around the 3.72-
mile circuit, bringing their racers to speed
in preparation for the 12-hour challenge.
Fans too were getting ready, firing up their
barbecue grills and stocking their coolers
for the daylong siege.
Meanwhile, at the front gate, the lines
started early as fans pressed to get into the
track. Many had to circumnavigate Madrid
Drive the detour set" up to compensate
for the failure to have Haywood Taylor
Boulevard finished in time for Race Week.
Flags fluttered in the gentle breeze as
hundreds of fans took advantage of the
American Le Mans Series' "open grid" pol-
icy where they could see the cars and driv-
ers up close and personal before the run-
ning of America's Premiere Endurance
Road Race.

\VAUCHUL -* Circuit Court
Judge Charles Curry did not
deliver a decision at Friday's sen-
tence mitigation hearing for Jean
Claude Meus.
That's a good sign, said Meus'
attorney Daniel F. Daly of


Tampa: "If a judge is going to
shoot you out of, the water, he'll
do it from the bench." .
Curry will issue a judgment
order after he has reviewed new
testimony. Daly asked Curry to
reduce Meus' two concurrent 15-
year sentences for vehicular
homicide to probation with com-
munity control.
Eventually, Daly would like
Meus' punishment transferred to

Father: 'She was lucky'
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Caroline Kiszivath is lucky to
be alive.
On Feb. 2, the 28-year-old Sebring native
was driving to classes at Valencia State
Community College in Orlando in a white
Nissan Pathfinder. She felt a sudden tail-end
vibration in the car and lost control.
The sport utility vehicle veered to the right,
ran over a curb and overturned.
It rolled between, two utility
poles and stopped short against
the guy wires, said her father,
Emrnest Kiszivath. .
She was thrown out either
through the sunroof or wind-
shield, and landed in soft
sandy soil that had just been KISZIVATH
turned up by construction
crews for a future Home Depot store.
She still'had faint vital signs. Paramedics got
her to Orlando Regional Medical Center within
17 minutes. She regained consciousness in the
hospital just long enough to give the chaplain a
phone number to call her family.
The good news
Among her cuts, bruises and sprains, her first
lumbar vertebrae was compressed, but she was
not paralyzed. She could move every finger and
toe, her father said.
It moved him to tears.
Paramedics and a hospital neurosurgeon
couldn't believe she was alive and coherent.
"She said, 'Dad, why does God still want
me?' her father said.

Caroline Kiszivath's Nissan Pathfinder has a
notch just behind the left rear doors (upper left)
where a guy wire caught the rolling SUV when
she wrecked on Feb. 2 in Orlando. When the car
stopped rolling, she flew out either the wind-
shield or the sunroof and landed in soft sand.
Her first lumbar vertebra was compressed, but
she isn't paralyzed.

The bad news
Before the wreck, Caroline had just received
word that she could attend the University of
Central Florida on a tennis scholarship.
Now, she wears a body brace and has been
prescribed physical therapy. She once took care
of herself, but now cannot drive, work, attend
classes or play tennis for several months. She
has had to relocate to Sebring, where she grad-
uated high school in 1995, to live with her par-
ents until she can function on her own.
Coming home
Her mother works at Highlands Regional
Medical Center. Her brother works at a bank

Town OKs

ordinances
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Town Council
unanimously approved sev-
eral ordinances Monday
night with little discussion.
The ordinances were as
follows:
Ordinance 2005-435
An amendment to the
town's sign ordinance
which specifies that mes-
sages on digital signs may
change once every five
minutes. This was the first
of two public hearings.
Ordinance 2005-436
The Flood Damage
Prevention Ordinance adds
Chapter 9 to the town's
land development code.
This is one step in the
process for the town to join
the National Flood
Insurance Program. The
ordinance was approved at
its second public hearing,
but not adopted.
Ordinance 2005-439
The ordinance deletes
Chapter 16 of the town
code, which appointed the
town council as the Local
Planning Agency. Said
town attorney Bert J.


Harris III, "We abandoned
that concept years ago.
This is a housecleaning
issue."
Ordinance 2005-450
- Another housecleaning
ordinance, it shuffled
around rules dealing with
government operations.

Lessons


learned


with pizza

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Papa Johns
manager Tim Burnette stood in
front of Bonnie Branca and
Patty Reutebuch's kindergarten
classes from Sun 'N Lake
Elementary School, and asked a
simple question, "Who wAnts to
make a pizza?"
Everybody did.
"This is a really cool field
trip," Reutebuch said with a
wide smile.
In kindergarten, students
learn about their immediate
community, which is why
monthly field trips are a part of
the normal curriculum. This
year, however, because of the
hurricane season's severe dis-
ruptions, it wasn't possible to
schedule that many.
However, Branca and
Reutebuch are doing their best
to get their students out. They
have already been to the
Children's Museum of
Highlands, will visit Highlands
Hammock State Park and
Florida Hospital before the end
of the year, and hope to take


felony charges relating to fail-
ure to file tax returns and pay
tax. If convicted, he faces up to
five years in prison and up to
$5,000 in fines, as well as pos-
sible repayment of stolen tax,
interest, penalty and, investiga-
tive costs. Varnum owned and
operated Central Homes of
Okeechobee Inc. at 807 N.E.
Park St., Okeechobee. The busi-
ness is no longer in operation.
According to Revenue


Department investigators,
Varnum routinely collected
sales tax from customers who
bought mobile homes at his
business. However, during var-
ious periods between March
2003 and June 2004, Varnum
failed to send in to the state all
of the sales taxes that he had
collected. Investigators found
that Vamum had illegally kept
$73,831.24 in tax money.
Under state law, sales tax is the


property of the state at the
moment of collection. DOR
staff repeatedly contacted
Vamum to help him come into
compliance with state tax law,
but he failed to meet his legal
obligations.
"To be fair, tax law must
apply uniformly to all business-
es," said Jim Zingale, executive
director of the -Revenue
Department."Tax cheats steal
money that the public pays to


support vital public services,
such as law enforcement and
education. They also steal a
competitive advantage over
honest businesspeople who pay
their taxes. The Department of
Revenue cannot and will not
allow this to occur."
If you have information
about tax theft, call the Florida
Department of Revenue investi-
gations office in West Palm
Beach at (561).640-2874.

The visit to Papa Johns is not
just about eating pizza. The stu-

Some home schoolers take FCAT


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Childrfn who
are home schooled have to have
their progress assessed every
year. Parents may chose from a
variety of tests, and the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test is ,one of those on the
accepted list.
The FCAT cannot be admin-
istered in the home, however,
so the department of curricu-
lum, at the school district, ful-
fills that function.
Parents had to sign their chil-


dren up for the test in January,
and then had to deliver their
children to the district iTfice,
where personnel administered
the FCAT.
This year 38 students, from
third to 11th grades, sat for the
series of tests. That is a number
that has been holding steady for
a number of-years now.
Other annual tests, such as
the SAT, are also acceptable, so
the FCAT numbers do not
reflect the number of children
being home schooled in
Highlands County.

to develop an understanding of

By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The town
of Lake Placid wants to work
more closely with the county on
issues that affect both govern-
ments.
Chief among them is devel-
opment. The council wants to
know what new construction
* may be coming just beyond the
town limits. The county wants
to stay abreast of similar activi-
ties in the town.
Regulations and code
enforcement are another issue
of concern for the council. For
example, it recently enacted a
new sign code -for its own two-
square-mile jurisdiction. The
county's less restrictive code
applies to those businesses just
outside of the town's borders.
Some councilmen expressed a
wish that the town and the
county could agree on a. single
code for the general Lake
Placid area.
In reality, municipalities and
county governments are man-
dated by Florida law to stay in
communication with each other
on issues that affect their mutu-
al interests, as Councilwoman
"Debra Worley pointed out.
"We do have an interlocal
agreement," Worley said. "We
have set out an interlocal area
that we're supposed to work
together. We have been remiss
in not sending the county what
we're doing. They want to
know."
Worley said she recently
spoke with the county's devel-


opment services director, Jim
Polatty, who expressed his will-
ingness to work more coopera-
tively with the town.
She suggested that the town
ask to give its impute on any
action the county might be tak-
ing in the several mile area sur-
rounding the town's borders.
. "Even if it's a non-issue,"
Worley said. "If we commented
on everything, then when our
comment wasn't there, they
would look for it. They would
come to us."
Town attorney Bert J. Harris
III said the interlocal agreement
would be useful in supporting
the town's wish that large com-
mercial retailers like Wal-
Mart or The Home Depot not
be allowed to build huge stores
on Lake Placid's doorstep.
Harris suggested that Local
Planning Agency Chairman
Hoz Compton should meet with
Polatty to discuss the logistics
of how the town and county
would work together. Compton
said he was willing to do that.
Worley suggested that town
clerk Arlene Tuck get the pro-
posals for development that the
county will be considering over
the next few months.
"We could see how to work
through it, and then we could
develop some kind of process,"
Worley said.
The council had the opportu-
nity to give the county its input
on one issue Monday ,a
request for a zoning change for
property "north of Roy -
Pendarvis Road.

Barry convicted of assault on LPPD officer


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In circuit court
Thursday, a jury convicted
Henry Brian Barry, 40, of Lake
Placid, of aggravated assault on
a law enforcement officer.


Mallows arrested

at Raceway for

drug possession
SEBRING Undercover
officers looming around the
Sebring International Raceway
Thursday arrested Christopher
Tyler Mallows of Chatham,
Mass., on charges stemming
from the sale of a cannabis
joint,
Mallows was charged with
possession of cannabis with
intent to distribute, possession
of paraphernalia and sale of
cannabis when he made an
exchange of the joint for $5.
According to arrest reports,
undercover officers confronted
Mallows and the defendant
removed the drug from his
right side pocket and placed
one cigarette into the officer's
hand.
After this, the officers identi-
fied themselves as working for
the Highland's County
Sheriff's Office Special
Operations Department and
placed the defendant into cus-
tody.
Mallows was revoked of his
Race ticket and warned not to
return tO the track or he would
be charged with trespassing.


The incident dates back to
7:50 a.m. March 31, 2004. A
Lake Placid police officer was
working traffic control at the
school crossing at Lake Placid
Middle School when Barry
drove up and dropped off his
daughter.
As he was leaving, arrest
reports state he began yelling
obscenities and threatening a
group of youngsters. The offi-
cer told him to stop, but he then


starting yelling at the officer.
As he got back in his car, the
officer walked to the rear of it to
get the tag number. He then
cursed the officer again, reports
said, and threatened to run the
officer over.
He then started backing
toward the officer, and the offi-
cer jumped out of the way.
During the entire incident, par-
ents were dropping off their
kids at the school. Cars were


slowing and stopping to watch
what was going on, disrupting
the flow of traffic.
Barry was charged with
aggravated assault on a law
enforcement officer and disor-
derly conduct.

Fans share their opinions about Race


By JACK HARRIS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING "We want our
water back."
"I particularly like the sun-
set with the cars coming up from
Turn 7 with their lights on."
"Flooding. It runs like a
river here and one year we had
everything float away including
the canopy."
"Parking is horrendous."
"I kinda like all that
(Hendricks Field history) and
the sports cars."
"Let's leave success alone."
"Move the existing fence
back 10 feet and install another
fence so people can walk from
one area to another with ease."
"The accessibility. One tick-
et can get you most every place
S'"The facility definitely
needs more 55-gallon trash
cans."
All of the above are fans
expressing their views good,
bad and weird about watching
.the Race from various spots on
the 3.7-mile course.
Want to hear more? To begin,
here's a trio of race fans sharing
their views. The three have set
up near the Fangio Chicane
since 2001, but they used to view
the races by the paddock area
and the Hairpin.
'This is the best spot to get a
nice view of the area and the sun
doesn't beat down on you," said
Clayton Burch of Fort
Lauderdale.
And the best thing about this
area?
"I particularly like the sunset
with the cars coming up from
Turn 7 with their lights on."
The worst thing?
"Flooding. It runs like a river
here and one year we had every-
thing float away, including the
canopy," Burch said, recalling
the time they camped out in the
backs of their pickup trucks. He
also bemoaned about lack of gen-
eral parking.
The men once used tents but
now they rent a moving van,
bring in all their furniture, cook-
ing needs, wood for the rooftop
platform and PVC pipe for the
froning and canopy.
- I'It's a lot cheaper than renting
a Winnebago and you don't have
to worry about ruining it
because it's a moving truck."
Joining Burch are Buddy
Sewell and Drew "The Man"
Phillips. This is Phillips' second
year here and the fourth for
Sewell, who said that the best
thing for him is getting to see "all
the sports cars in the world. I'm
also a bit of a history freak, and
looking back at Hendricks Field
before 1952, knowing that the
Memphis Belle landed here .- I
kinda like all that and the sports
cars."
The Fangio group
This group of some 30 folks
has been coming to the Fangio.
Chicane area for 25 years, some
from Jacksonville, others from
Miami, still more from Orlando
and several from Georgia. When
asked about the race course,
Mike Brewer of Miami said,
"Let's leave success alone."
He quickly added that they
lost the water, which was avail-
able in the area through anti-
quated pipes that were in place
since Hendricks Field construc-
tion in 1941.
"Now, we have to' bring it in
barrels and use 12-volt pumps to
fill our reservoirs."
Trisha Gazboda of Bethlehem,


JACK HARRIS/News-Sun
Dan Santarsiero is flanked by the Austin brothers Paul and Rick, all
of Melbourne, at their soggy campsite at Turn 10.


Ga., emphasized the water woes:
"We want our water back," she
yelled.
Amid several large tents and
various vehicles for sleeping, the
gregarious party makes sure
they have enough goodies for
several days, even a croquet set
where they play between the
fence and their viewing area. ,
A fan from the 1960s
Debbie Allison, a 14-year-old
from White Springs in North
Florida, visited her aunt and
uncle, Ruth and Leon Tubbs of
Sebring, in 1965 and they went to
the Race.
"Aunt Ruth fixed fried chicken:
and baked a Coca-Cola chocolate
cake, and brought along an old
quilt. We, and one of my cousins,
saw the Race from several differ-
ent spots, and it was great."
When she graduated from
Jasper High School at 17, Debbie
moved to Sebring with her par-
ents, Ozella and Larry Allison -
and has been coming to the
races ever since.
She remembered in particular
the 1970 race in which an injured
Steve McQueen and Peter
Revsori were in a close finish
with Mario Andretti. Andretti
overtook Revson to win in one of
Sebring's closest victories.
"Vera and Ebert Cribbs,
another aunt and uncle of mine,
ran a business on Ridgewood
selling and repairing shoes -
The Shoe Box and McQueen
came in to have a special boot fit-


ted to protect his fractured ankle.
They got autographs and they
said he was very nice and thank-
ful."
Debbie married Kevin
Roberts 32 years ago and they
now live in Avon Park.
Another vivid memory of the
Race, she said, was in 1999. "Our
youngest daughter Amy was race
queen." (They have two other
daughters, Kati and Holli.)
Kevin and Debbie met in 1972.
"And we've attended every sin-
gle race since (except 1974 when
it was canceled because of the
national oil crisis)."
They watch the race from "an
ideal spot" just east of the
Chateau Elan.
One thing they don't like is
the amount of space allotted to
reserve parking.
'There are lots and lots of spe-
cial parking areas that are never
filled up," Debbie said.
Kevin added, "Parking is hor-
rendous. We paid $300 for a spot
for a camper but if you have cars,
there's no room for them. It
becomes a bottleneck."
He referred to their parking
spot. as "Chateau Hobo," a slam
at the partially filled area at the
expensive hotel at Turn 7.
Despite the cramped parking,
they like the experience of family
gatherings each year, even the
pre-race planning on who,s
bringing what for the several
days at the race course.

Joe Lowe, a Sebring native,
has been coming to the races as
long as he can remember. This
year's event was his 21st in suc-
cession, even counting last year's
race, which he watched on Speed
Channel from his wife's hospital
room with their 1-day-old son.
They had a birthday party for
him at Turn 13 Friday. Lowe
remembers his own childhood at
the race course: "My parents
would put us down for the
evening and I can remember see-
ing the race-car lights reflecting
off the walls of the camper."
Turn 13 the Tower Turn -
is his favorite spot. He and his
buddy, Shawn Nickell, also of
Sebring, set up using at least
three parking spots (at $300
each), and Nickell's old bus as
sleeping quarters and rooftop
viewing area.
They both said they like the
fact that people are free to wan-
der around most of the infield
and watch the Race from various
spots without intruding on. oth-
ers. However, they believe closer
access to the course could be
accomplished by double fencing.
"Move the existing fence back
10 feet and install another fence
so people can walk from one area
to another with ease."
Rainy days and racing
"We used to be NASCAR fans
but it got so expensive we can't
afford to go."
That's Paul Austin, of
Melbourne, talking about why
he and brother Rick and friend
Dan Santarsiero come to
Sebring.
"It's great. We can come here
for 80 bucks for four days worth
of camping."
The Austin brothers have
been sports-car fans for four
years but Santarsiero said his
first 12 Hours of Sebring was in
1986. They joked that, "Next
year, we'll have a Prevost bus,
depending on how we'll do on
the Lotto Saturday," a reference
to one of the top-of-the-line motor
homes.
The men were a bit damp from
the heavy rains Wednesday night
and Thursday, but they were not
complaining.
'We've been to a lot of race


tracks around the country,"
Santarsiero said, and "Rainy days
are part of road racing."
He added that one of the best
things about Sebring is its
"accessibility. One ticket can get
you most every place, but I wish
they had a tram system (con-
necting the Green Park to the
paddock and other areas). To
me, this is the best corner (Turn
10) to watch. You get speed up
from the Chicane and a lot of
passing at the corner, but we're
so far away from everything else.
It's like we'd have to pack a lunch
to go to the garages."
The trio, thinking of keeping
the place a bit neater, said, '"The
facility definitely needs more 55-
gallon trash cans."
Growing up
Tom Jones, not the singer, but
a retired businessman from
Dunedin, accompanied his
grandson, Tommy Files, 10, of
Eustis, as the youngster grabbed
an autograph Friday from Ian
Bass; a AJR Racing driver only 12
years older than Tommy.


Jones has been coming to the
12 Hours of Sebring since 1959
with the exception of four years
in the '60s, "It was not the place
to bring his little girls then."
He and wife Celia have been at
almost every turn on the old and
current course and have stayed
in everything from campers, pop-
ups, trucks to motor homes.
Jones, when he -was "young
and dumb" as he put it, used to
drink beer and participate in
famous "mud races" in Green
Park. He laughs now, and says,
"Now, I tell my grandkids don't
do as grandpa did."
He was kicked out of the
Hairpin area when it was modi-
fied in the late 1990s. Jones also
favored Turns 1 and 2 at one
time but now has his RV parked
facing the start-finish line.
Jones also fussed about vehi-
cles being allowed to park
behind the RV line, "Some peo-
ple can enter the reserved area
without passes, making it diffi-
cult to enter and leave the
assigned spots."

Getting ready


Air Force Association prepares to honor

math and science students, teachers


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Workers prepare the new Maserati MC 12, one of the stars of this year's GTI Division in the
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring. The long awaited entry challenged the likes of Aston Martin,
Corvette and Ferrari .in its division.




Central Florida Glass



preparing for move


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It has become
a kind of landmark along U.S.
27. Beginning as a simple clear-
ing just north of the new
Glisson's Animal Supply build-
ing, the metal skeleton of the
structure that soon will be the
new Central Florida Glass and
Mirror location is showing the
shape of things to come.
The company has been fixing
and installing glass at its current
shop on Highlands Aveilu,,- for
better than three dec?,.cs. IP
took on its current ownership
by Don and Maria Maddo
after the tragic death of the for
mer owner.
"It was Buck's glass at the
time and I was working there,"
Don Maddox said. "But then
Buck and Betty Gillilan were
killed in an airplane accident."
,At that time, the business had
been established in the commu-
nity for 17 years. -
Maddox bought the business
from the family estate in 1983,
then with his mom, his wife and
one other worker he built the
business into a firm' that. does
work all over the county with
some 20 employees.
"Over the years we deleted a
few services and added some
others," Maddox said. "We
expanded the commercial lines
and added some other things in
the residential market."
They decided to make the
move about four years ago after


learning that the business where
it now stands would be substan-
tially consumed by the expan-
sion of Highlands Avenue as
part of Phase II of the Sebring
Parkway.
"The county has been good
to us. They brought an engineer
in-to see if they could re-fit us
here on the lot but it just would-
n't work for us," he said.
So the county bought the
land and Maddox went looking
for a new location.
A combination of the hurn'i
canes, the permitting process
and engineering the site has put
him a year and a half behinai
scheduler In the meantime
Maddox leases his old property
while the new building is going
up.
"We're hoping to move in by
this summer, at least by J-uly,"
he said.
- The new facility will be ,a lot
larger, swelling from about
8,000 square feet to .16,900
square feet. However, said
Maddox, his operation won't be
using all of that space.
"About 7,000 square feet of
that we plan to lease," he said.
At this time, there aren't any
tenants signed for the addition-
al room but Maddox is willing
to accommodate anybody who
wanted.
"We've got it designed so it
would fit just about anybody
out there," he said.
There are four 1,875-square-
foot units as part of the plan


with provisions to feasibly
combine two of those if needed.
"We've put roll up doors in
the back in case there's a
plumbing or tile shop," he said.
But Maddox emphasized the
spaces could be everything
from doctor's offices to retail
stores.
"There's delivery access and
a substantial amount of park-
ing," he said.
As for the new Central
'lorida Glass portion of the
bi'ilding, Maddox said the floor
space would provide room fo-
expansion and the ability to la'
out fde work area for more effi
cien( y
"I've got some new equip-
ment that will make us a little
more productive and I think we
can get a little bit better organ-
ized." he said.
But it's the highway expo-
suie that is enticing the bust-i
nessman.
"To go from 10,000 cars a
day to 100,000 -- we're hoping
to increase business by 30 per-
cent," he said.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For the past 15
years, the local Air Force
Association and the School
Board of Highlands County's
office have sponsored a science
and math recognition program
honoring teachers and students
in the county's public schools
This year's science and
mathematics students and
teachers who have been desig-
nated as outstanding by their
school principals in the coun-
ty's 15 public schools will be
saluted and feted by the two
organizations on Saturday,
April 9, according to Kenneth
R. Beers, AFA chapter presi-
dent.
This 16th annual honors pro-
gram will be at the Agri-Civic
Center in Sebring, with lunch
starting at noon.
Each honoree will receive a
certificate attesting to their
award as well as a personal gift
from the Florida Highlands Air
Force Association chapter.
Beers said this event is part
of a continuing chapter program
to recognize and encourage
those individuals excelling in
these specific fields of study.
Last year, the event was held
in Avon Park and featured Dr.
Norman Stephens, president of
South Florida Community

Eddie Mae Henderson (second from left) was presented with the 'Community Service Award' from the

Group honors Henderson



for holiday generosity


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID More
than 25 years ago, Eddie Mae
Henderson invited relatives
friends and needy strangers to
her Christmas table to enjoy a
holiday dinner that many would
never have otherwise.
Her generosity reached more
and more people over the years
and made it necessary to move
to larger accommodations at
Stuart Park and eventually to
the Masonic Hall in Lake


Placid. There, a cadre of volun-
teers have joined her in prepar-
ing and serving Christmas din-
ners.
SThe 2004 Christmas dinner
found 650 people seated at her
"table" enjoying a bountiful
repast.
Henderson's unselfish efforts
to make the holiday more joy-
ous for the needy has drawn
many volunteers offering time
and money toward its success.
'Among them is Frank Hartzell,


prominent local grocer and
meat market owner as well as
caterer who prepares the
turkeys to be offered on the
menu.
Jeri McDonald, local Patriots
Chapter Regent and presiding
officer, started the process sev-
eral months ago to honor
Henderson with the NSDAR
"Community Service Award,"
which recognizes worthy local
people. The effort to do this,
though started locally, has to
eventually be recognized by the
national headquarters of the
NSDAR. The award consists of
a certificate and a lapel pin
acknowledging the work of the
recipient.
The presentation ceremony
took place at the New Life
Assembly Church with the help
of its pastor, the Rev W.C.
Holden, on March 13 before
Henderson's friends and neigh-
bors. The response from the
members of the congregation
on learning that one of their,

clearly indicated that all agreed
that she was a deserving recipi-

Cecil 'Bus' Kelver built a semi-truck out of Pepsi can products to give to his grandson, who drives a
truck for Pepsi. Now that it's completed, Kelver plans to deliver the truck to his grandson in
Alabama.

Kelver builds soda-powered semi,

By KATARA SIMMONS
News-Sun
AVON PARK Cecil
"Bus" Kelver, of Avon Park,
and his grandson have always
shared a passion for trucks.
"I used to own a wrecker
company and he [my grand-
son] was always fascinated
with the trucks," he said
Wednesday afternoon at his
home.
Kelver spent three months
building a semi truck entire-
ly out of Pepsi can products
and plans to give it to his
grandson, Chris Floerkey,
who is a truck driver for
Pepsi Co. in Alabama.
According to Kelver, he
used more than 800 cans and
a lot of trial and error to con-
struct the truck,
"It's seven and a half feet
long and about two feet high
and two feet wide," he said
proudly.
The entire truck was
made from aluminum cans
including the smoke stacks
and even a steering wheel
bearing his grandson's
'idh y :' *^ r't, _^_ f^, lT lii


name.
"I didn't drink a drop
either," he joked about his new
hobby.
He came up with the idea


after he saw a farm tractor
built from painted soda cans.
Kelver says he plans to
build another truck possibly
out of beer cans in the future.

Sebring's Industrial Park.
The unusual community of
interest that exists between the
City of Sebring and Cape
Canaveral, resulting from the
existence of the N.A.S.A. pro-
gram and the Automobile
Racing Club of Florida, was
firmly established on Monday,
March 25 and Tuesday, March
26, through an industrial pro-
motional conference held at the
Cape Colony Inn (partly owned
by the astronauts) in Cocoa
Beach, Fla.
The hastily conceived and
arranged conference resulted
because N.A.S.A. officials, par-
ticularly the' astronauts them-
selves, were' keenly interested
in the Sports Car Racing
Program and were in Sebring as
the guests of A.R.C.F., during
the Grand Prix endurance race
on March 23. In addition to
N.A.S.A. officials, astronauts
Allen Shepard and Gordon
Cooper were here. These offi-
cials suggested that they would
be glad to conduct an especially
arranged tour of Cape
Canaveral while the foreign vis-
itors, were still in this country
and area.

. PingPong


launched the preceding week by
a Delta rocket was on display
and was fully described and
explained. The tour took the.
visitors in and out of the block
house control rooms, onto the
launching pads and afforded
'close views of the tall gantrys
used in each rocket firing. Final
preparations were witnessed for
the firing of the Saturn rocket
which took place last Thursday
- the gantry for this launching
stood more than 30 feet high.
The party spent considerable
time in the Mercury control
center, and sat in the seats used
by the world's leading scientists
and astronomers during each
actual orbital shot from the
Cape.
Seventy air miles is not,far.
As many as two hours are
required for workmen to travel
by car to or from Cape


Park in 1963
Canaveral and their homes on
the mainland. Tremendous traf-
fic jams result when shifts of
workers are going on, while
others are coming off the jobs.
Limited causeways exist.
Employees may have to be
flown to and from nearby com-
munities to eliminate' serious
delays.
The relative lack of humidity
on the "Ridge" is a factor of
importance in the production of
many items used in space
exploration.
The special Sebring Chamber
of Commerce group was com-
posed of President Ernest M.
Breed, Executive Secretary
Forrest Lloyd, Directors Beeler,
Bond Clayton and Pillinger,
with special invited ambassa-
dors of good will,
Representative Morris Adams,
Stanley Davis, Kenneth Grady
and Gene Sebring.

RACE
Continued from 1A
As usual the Raceway
grounds were full of colorful
campsites and equally colorful
individuals. A group of dyed in
the wool fans of the 12-hour
classic were in attendance
throughout the Raceway.
"We must have 25 banners
around here that say
Sebringfans.com," said
Webmaster Zach Hoke.
Based out of Atlanta, Hoke
and his friends had come to the
Race from different parts of
Georgia and Tennessee.
Many community leaders
and local residents have had
their spaces for a long time.
Former Sebring Regional
Airport Manager Ed Jordon and
former Airport Facilities
Manager Duane Sumner have
combined with their neighbors
to occupy three spaces along
the side of the track.
"We just had a guy take over
this next space and now he's
part of the crew," Sumner said.
"He flew all the way in from
California and he still doesn't,
have his luggage."
The group has established a
presence ranging from elevated
seating to an overstuffed chair
where one guest sat reading
information about the track and
its competitors.
Highlands County Grape
Growers Association President
Kathy Giller and her husband,
Roger, watched the field roar by
sipping Noble wine from their
own vineyard.
"We put a special label on
our bottles in honor of each
year's race," she said, noting
the picture of the Corvette that
graces this year's bottle.

member Ellene Fields was
handing out samples of venison
at the "Chateau Hobo," while
Highlands County School
Board member Wally Randall
tended the grill.
"We've had this spot since
1988," she said. "There are a lot
of really nice people around this
area of the track."
As widely spaced as the
campsites were, each of the
inhabitants agreed on one thing.
Their spot was the best place to
watch the race.
While the cars roared around
the track in the warm tempera-
tures, fans toured the midway
looking at exotic cars, playing
games, eating a wide variety of
food and listening to rock 'n'
roll music.
Among the marquees with
their own display were Lotus,
Cadillac, Corvette and Audi. It
was a chance for people to have
an up close look at the con-
sumer versions of the cars and
to sit inside. The Cadillac
Performance Tour display
showed off the CTS-V, which
raced to a second place finished
in Friday's SCCA Pro SPEED
World Challenge GT race with
Andy Pilgrim at the wheel.
There were plenty of free
posters of the car as well.
Audi had its own enclosed
display area with both street
vehicles and representations of
the R8, which has dominated
the ALMS and the R6, which
led'many laps of the SPEED
GT series in 2004.

Kiszivath said she is getting

The bills


Drawing a steady business in
front of the ALMS gift shop
were the Pirelli girls, who were
autographing posters of them-
selves for a long line of -
mostly male fans. The
Sebring Raceway's gift shop
also was doing a brisk business
selling T-shirts and caps. Big
sellers were the Green Park T-
shirts and Mobil 1 caps.
The Spring Brake Party Zone
drew a crowd with attractions
including "The World's Tallest
Inflatable Slide," a paintball
challenge and Budweiser's True
Music Roadhouse.
As youngsters rocketed
down the very wet inflatable
slide, owner Dave Hagadom
kept a close watch.
"We don't allow any flip-
ping," he said as another
youngster made a head-first
plunge.
Hagadorn and his company,
Tampa Bay Bounce, has a per-
manent location at Clearwater
Beach but also has a full sched-
ule of special events.
A local group, Adrenaline
Dunes, allowed people to chal-
lenge each other in a paintball
showdown. People .could go in
on one-on-one matches or with
up to four on a side.
As the Race roared on,
Through You played on the
Budweiser Stage. The five-
piece ensemble cranked
through the set loud enough to
drown out even the high pow-
ered sports cars.
Fans that weren't grilling out
at their campsites had plenty of
choices for their lunch.
At the Big Brothers and Big
Sisters-staffed information
booth, workers said it had been
a sedate crowd with no serious
problems to report.


Caroline Kiszivath still has a
lease obligation where she was
living in Orlando.
That's not the worst of it.
Bills for care and medicine are
mounting.
Her family is hoping anyone
who can help, will donate to a
trust fund in her name at
SunTrust Bahk, Account No.
1000026282862.
Assistance would be greatly
appreciated, and prayers wel-t
comed, Ernest Kiszivath said.


Pioneers reminisce


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Every
year the Lake Placid Historical
Society selects a Pioneer Man
and Woman of the Year. In
order to qualify, an individual
has to have lived in Lake Placid
for 50 years.
This year's honorees have
spent almost all of their lives
right in town.
Julian Sapp was born there in
1934. He spent his earliest days
sleeping in a dresser drawer and
went on to graduate from high
school in 1952.
At the time all grades were
taught in one brick building on
Interlake Boulevard, which
now is part of the South Florida
Community College campus.
Emma Lura Payne Goulds,
Pioneer Woman of the Year,
was born in 1916 and moved to
Lake Placid with her family
when they homesteaded 160
acres of land in a government
program shortly after World
WarI .
A family had to live for five
years on the property, and need-

prison)."
Meus, a.truck driver, has lost
his driver's license, but can get
a job as a certified diesel
mechanic if on probation.
Chenoweth and Daly both said
Meus would be a hard worker
outside of prison. Daly suggest-
ed that Meus' only crime, if
any, was working too hard and
allegedly falling asleep at the
wheel.
On the night of May 11,
2001, Meus was headed east on
State Road 64 with a loaded
'truck. He said he dodged a car
at the S.R. 64 and State Road
636 junction; and had just got-
ten back onto the pavement
when he swerved his semitrail-
er to miss hitting a white van
head-on. Prosecutors said he
fell asleep.
The' loaded trailer tipped
- ~ er and crushed the van,
killing Nona Moore, 40, and her


ed to improve at least five
acres of the land in the five
years.
Goulds remembers
when Melvin Dewey and
his wife arrived in town
from Lake Placid, N.Y.,
and they began their make-
over of the town, including
renaming it Lake Placid.
Just out of high school,
Goulds worked for Mrs.
Dewey at the office for $1
a day.
Both Sapp and Goulds
remember a town without
paved roads, when children
could roam wide hunting
squirrels or raccoons, or
swim and fish in any of the
many lakes.
Sapp summed up the
pleasure of living in Lake
Placid by quoting an old
friend, Cecil Myer.
"I'd rather be in Lake
Placid in jail, than be any-
where else a free man,"
Sapp said as the standing
room only crowd at the
Woman's Club warmly
applauded .


daughter, Lindsey, 8. Moore's
two other daughters, Ashley,
now 16, and Haley, now 10,
survived.
Meus. was convicted in
August 2003 and sentenced in
September 2003. Nona Moore's
sisters Dana Christenson of.
Tampa and Beth Jahna of Avon
Park said they didn't know
about the trial until reading
about it in newspapers, and did-
n't get to speak at the sentenc-
ing hearing.
They believe their sister
would not have wanted Meus in
prison.
"(Meus') grief alone is more
punishment than anyone
deserves," Christenson said.
"How will his boy ever under-
stand that his father went to
prison because of this acci-
dent?"
Jahna, with whom the two
girls live, said probation would
be better.
"If he went to jail, I'd feel
worse,"' she said. "I'd feel hurt
again like another life is lost."

Grady Parrish, who volunteers at the
museum.


Her nieces wanted to come
and testify, but she didn't know
if that would be appropriate.
She did bring letters from the
children for Curry to read.
Meus' 12-year-old son Jonathan
attended Friday's hearing, as
did Chenoweth and her step-
father Ray Kane of Sebring.
Meus has lived with him while
working at Kash 'N Karry,
awaiting appeal.
Assistant State Attorney John
Kromholz understood the sis-
ters' sympathy, but can't
believe they didn't know about
the trial. Subpoenas were, sent
on May 21, 2003, especially to
Jahna, he said, but she didn't
recall that.
Jahnasaid she "should have
been more on top of things,"
but at the time, her family was
dealing with an unrelated cus-
tody fight with the girls' father
Darryl Moore. Because of the
estranged relationship with
him, he learned of the trial, but
they didn't.

TFFIN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Up close and

personal
Race week is filled with
engines and legends; flags and
chrome; people and beer.
This is Race week and I'm
on Airport Road headed for
Sebring International
Speedway. What can be better
than a reporter headed into the
biggest story Highlands
County has to offer, with an
all-access race ticket in his
pocket.
Wow!
Only this is Tuffin' It With
Tuffley, so there has to be a
catch right?
You betcha. Even with a
paddock parking pass stuck on
my windshield, I have to drive
by the Audis, CTIs and
Corvettes and pull up to a
portable toilet instead.
Then I roll up my sleeves
for work.
Because I'm here, in a tent
and aluminum city sprung out
of the grass, surrounded by
gleaming machines, to learn
about the care and feeding of
portable toilets.
So to speak.
Mid-Florida Portable
Toilets, owned and operated
by Lacy Copland, is providing
recreational vehicle waste
water pump outs and the stand
alone facilities for the Sebring
Raceway this past week.
Flushed with anticipation
(sorry), I'm along for a ride.
Everyone has felt the great
relief of finding a clean toilet

important pit stop

Mid-Florida Portable Toilets provides perhaps the most important pit stop at the Raceway.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING The people
who provide and service
portable toilets are the unsung
heroes behind the scenes at
concerts, sporting events and
construction sites.
After all, as Lacy Copland,
the owner and operator of Mid-
Florida Portable Toilets, points
out people have a bad percep-
tion of the business, they don't
like to think about it until they
have to, but then they demand
the best.
Take the Race week here in
Highlands County for example.
Mid-Florida has placed 150
portable toilets throughout the
Raceway. Each toilet holds 35
or 40 gallons of liquid, of which
f'ive gallons is deodorized clean
water to start. All of those toi-
lets will be serviced every day,
and many more than once. This
means way more than 4,500
gallons of waste is removed
daily.
At Mid-Florida the waste is
treated and converted into fer-
tilizer then sprayed onto a pas-
t re.
But Copland wants people to
know the story isn't about the
quantity produced, it's the qual-
iay of the product that's impor-
tant.
Portable toilets have come a
long way from the wooden
privy days, and the business is
tr ing to' organize into a,
licensed industry.


The first breakthrough came
during the 1970s when fiber-
glass became popular. It wasn't
ideal, however, because repairs
Were difficult, the sheds were
heavy and hard to manage and
they faded.
In the 1980s plastic started to
replace fiberglass and the
industry hasn't looked back.
For one thing plastic is easy to
replace. The sheds are made of
riveted components, if a piece
needs to be replaced it's simple,
and relatively inexpensive to
do.
Plastic has allowed for com-
fort additions as well.
Portable toilets can now be
rented with air conditioning,
flush toilets, and piped-in
music.' Mid-Florida even has a
mobile unit which combines a
men's and a women's room
with all the comforts of home.
Plastic is also easy to clean
and disinfect; and it's light. One
man can move a privy around
by himself.
Copland adds, however, that
no matter how new or acces-
sorized a toilet, if it isn't clean
it's useless. Service, he said, is
the key.
This is one reason he now
uses computer software to keep
track of his portables, and why
he is running four two-man
teams throughout Race week.

The trick is to keep a toilet
from, overflowing. Something
that isn't always easy to do on a

in a time of need, or suffered
terribly when they didn't.
And it's a huge job keeping
150 portable toilets serviced
over the expanse of the
Sebring Raceway. Copland is
running four trucks, just about
around the clock, every day.
I joined him and Phil
Cabrera as they made their
rounds Wednesday evening. In
addition to the stands of
portable toilets, we also
stopped when flagged down by
RV owners.
R The truck is divided, into two"
tanks; a waste watef:ta'hk thai
holds 1,600 gallons and a fresh
water tank that holds 400 gal-
lons.
We'd pull up to a set of
privies and Cabrera would set
out the vacuum hose, which
has a long anteater like nozzle
on the end. Wearing heavy rub-
ber gloves, he'd stick the noz-
zle deep into the toilet seat and
the contents of the holding
tank were sucked out into the
truck's tank.
Then I would scrub down
the inside of the privy with a
long handled scrub brush and
five gallons of sudsy, fresh
water. With the inside scrubbed
down, I'd pour the rest of the
bucket into the commode's
holding tank.


The inside of the privy
would then be hosed down, the
toilet paper checked, and we
were done.
What surprised me was that
it really wasn't that unpleasant.
I had planned on opening
this piece with a line like, "It
gave new meaning to 'eau
d'toilette.' But then it didn't
really smell that bad.
I had thought, "What if
some of this stuff splashes on
me?" But by the end of
evening, it seemed fairly safe
to me. With, every connection
fitting neatly into another, the
job, ironically, seemed to be no
muss or fuss.
SIn that I was wrong,
.Copland indicated that my first:
fear was justified. This is defi-
nitely a job with unusual haz-
ards.
It turns out, for example,
that RV connectors aren't'all
what they're cracked up to be.
Or at least they weren't a few
years ago when Copland
hooked up to one. Just as he
started the vacuum pump, the
connection fell apart and hun-
dreds of gallons of nasty liquid
sprayed our over the ground,
which happened to be concrete.
Did I mention it was pouring
rain at the time? Or that there
was a large audience? Which
thought it was funny? So one
of them video taped it?
.Fortunately for me, we got
the rain, but missed the disas-

Finally, this job, at least dur-
ing a major event like the 12
Hours of Sebring, is not laid
back.
With 150 portable toilets, all
of which have to be serviced
daily, and some more often
than that, and with countless
RV pump outs added on, the
trucks run almost non-stop.
The teams of two have to be
very quick; the pace is fast and
no nonsense.
As for me, as a sign of
respect I'll tip my hat, and
never, ever, tip a privy again.

Copland is complaining, in fact
he loves hot, sunny days.
What he's less thrilled about,
however, are those people who
think tipping over a privy is a
hysterical prank. "Vandalism is
a big, big problem," he said.
"Everybody .thinks it's funny
until they have to clean it up.
Down in Lake Placid, kids

whole family to enjoy! Presenting, in the center ring, the razzle-dazzle
master of humbug, P T Barnum (played by Chris Hayes) and his
beautiful, practical and pragmatic wife Chairy (played by Deanna Pollard),
along with the marvelous ring master (played by Toni Ford), our pint-sized
giant Tom Thumb (played by Cameron Reck), and last but not least, The
Swedish Nightingale Jenny Lind (played by Jill Lockhart). Joining them in

criminating taste are show-
cased throughout.
For 15 years Terri decorated
model homes. Now her flair is
available to the general public
in her new store, where unique
and varied choices are within.
Terri welcomes other designers
to use her new retail space as a
resource, especially the sepa-
rate design center in the back
with a wide array of catalogs,
swatch books, etc.

rator, and her client, Gloria

selves comfortable. in the
design room.
"We're redecorating my
home. I love this place. It is so
pretty in here, and there's so
many great ideas," Gloria
Davis said.
Each room is tastefully deco-
rated not only with furniture
and accessories, but with lots of
wonderful gift ideas: luxurious
Arthur Court Design items,
candles, bookends, frames,
unique, apparel, watches, and
tote bags that can be mono-
grammed. There's a sink
installed in a handsome vanity
for a distinctive look: Various
window treatment examples set
a mood in each room. There are
pillows, porcelain, figures, area
rugs, hats, tables, chairs, trays,
ottomans, silk plants, desks,
lamps, candlesticks, clocks,
feminine T-shirts, and decora-
tive plates to peruse, as you
meander along the hardwood
floors of this elegant, relaxed-
style home.
Terri's Terrace is open 10
a.m, to 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and closed Sundays.

Put litterers to
work cleaning
Editor:
We have been reading with
great interest the articles about
the littering problem in the
area. It seems to be getting
worse.
A few weeks ago, on our
way to work, we noticed a
group of what appeared to be
retirees diligently cleaning up
the trash ,along our new
Parkway. When we drove home
it was so nice and clean!
However, it was soon "back to
normal," unfortunately.
We have had numerous dis-
cussions about it, and we came
up with what we thought was a
terrific idea for the punishment
of litterers.
Instead of fining them,
which would only hurt their
pocketbook, require them to
pick up litter every day for a set
period of time. Let the punish-
ment fit the crime.
If they have to pick it up for
a week or so, it will imprint the


lesson upon their minds, along
with teaching about the annoy-
ance of having to clean up after
the thoughtless! If they repeat,
which possibly would be
unlikely, theft add a fine to a
longer clean up "sentence," but
always leave the work aspect in
it.

Use sand to fill

test ordnances
Editor:
Has anyone asked the Air
. Force why they think they need
to drop live ordnance at the
Sebring bombing range?
A 100-pound bomb, or a
500-pound bomb, or a 2,000-
pound bomb all are falling
at the same trajectory whether
they are filled with sand or an
explosive charge.
A real bomb makes a lot of
noise, pollutes the ground, kills
birds, animals and people, if
one goes astray through errors.
And is much more costly to me
and you to make.

who write the stories
they read.
Well, we have a lively crew.
They all stay busy finding sto-

mention the phone calls as well
to confirm information. They
aim to get the facts straight and
are here to serve Highlands

Assumption is not in their

be sensitive to the people who
give them the facts, etc. and
seek to tell the whole story,
both sides, to be fair to all sides.

SEBRING Friday was a good night
for the Vazquez boys, at least at the, plate.
Older brother Kiko, a senior who strug-
gled in three-plus innings on the mound, hit
a bases-loaded single to tie the game in the
sixth and Tony, a freshman, followed that
hit with a three-run double to
Sebring right-center to cap Sebring's

Notebook
Record attendance at
Race once again
It's getting to the point that it
will be a bigger story if the
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring
doesn't set an attendance
record.
Raceway President and
General Manager Tres
Stephenson said Saturday
morning that ticket sales for the
53rd running of the Race will
set a new high when all is said
and done.
"Last year, we recorded just a
little over 162,000 over the four
days, and we're definitely going
to do better than that," he said.
Considering the construction
just outside the Raceway, which
had raised fears of a massive
traffic jam, the backup outside
the gates wasn't nearly as bad
as anticipated, even with the
huge number of cars flowing
through the main gate.
"We've got a helicopter in the
sky right now seeing where all
the pockets are where we can
park them if we have to,"
Stephenson said. "W, don't
want to, but:we ma have to.end.
up parking them o*he outside
and shuttling them in. They're
pretty backed up out there right
now.
"We did have a good early
arrival, so most of the campers
and weekenders are in."
Stephenson wouldn't be sur-
prised if next year's Race sets
another attendance record.
"It's bigger every year," he
said. "We've just got to find a
place to put them all."

the game, was Sebring's lone hit.
But the tide quickly turned after Colt

"We've lost a couple like that this year

High School Softball


Riverdale shuts out


Lady Blue Streaks


By JEFF CANTWELL
Neiws-Sun C respondentt
SEBRING Riverdale's
Raiders caught Sebring's soft-
ball team in a serious spring
break mode Friday night and
ran away with a 9-0 district win
on just five hits.
Sebring hindered its chances
with several costly errors that
enabled Riverdale to blow .the
game open on a chilly night.
The Raiders improved to 9-1
overall and 5-0 in district play,
while the Lady Streaks fell to 5-
5 and 3-2.
Blue Streaks head coach Lee
Tolar kept waiting for the offen-
sive explosion that never mate-
rialized.
"We didn't show up to play
tonight, bottom line," Tolar
said. "Spring break ... we'll get
in a few practices and hopeful-
ly we'll come back the.end of
March and then run the table."
- Holly McChesney coaxed a
one-out walk in the top of the
first inning and later scored on
Meaghan Massholder's bases
loaded walk to put the Raiders
on top 1-0. Senior pitcher
Maggie Statler got out of the
jam with her second strikeout
of the inning to strand three
base runners, but Sebrirg was
never -able to string together a
rally against Raider right-han-
der Samantha Price.
Riverdale tacked on two


insurance runs in the top of the
fourth after Massholder led off
with a booming triple to
straightaway center field. Cody
Windham walked with. one out
and Massholder came home on
a Sebring error. Windham stole
home when the Streaks mistak-
enly thought there were three
outs instead of two and started
to leave the field.
A one-out double by Price
(2-for-3) and two more Sebring
errors raised the lead to 7-0.


Riverdale


Sebring

0,


Riverdale ended
the scoring with
two more runs in
the top of the sev-
enth. Massholder
and Courtney
Carter opened the
top of the inning


with walks, advanced to scor-
ing position on a wild pitch and
scored on consecutive ground-
outs to second base by
,'Windham and .Kerra Pike.
Sebring made a little noise in
the bottom of the seventh when
Kristin Salinder led off with a
single, Priya Patel legged out an
infield single with two outs and
Kendall Carson walked for the
third straight time to load the
bases.
But Price delivered a key
strikeout to end the game. Price
finished with 11 strikeouts
against three walks and three
hits.

DEVILS
Continued from 1B
Dressel singled and scored on an error in
the second, a Johnny Sedlock double
opened the door to a five-hit, two-error
nightmare third for Lake Placid (7-2, 2-2 in
District 10-3A), which included a dropped
pop-up, a balk to score a run and a poor
'decision to throw across the diamond on a
grounder to first.
"That's out of context of anything we
ever talk about," Coomes said.
"We made those plays out of panic, not
out of what we've learned, but out of panic,
and you only panic when you're afraid."
Conversely, Avon Park starting pitcher
Billy Dobson (1-1) grew less hesitant by
the out in a five-inning, four-hit, one-
unearned-run outing that Red Devil head
coach Mort Jackson called his best of the
season.
"That's how we've expected him to pitch
all along," Jackson said. "He got a lot of
confidence, and as he went on he got better
and better and better."
Jackson was glad to see Dobson right
himself after taking lumps from fierce com-
petition like Class 4A Sebastian River,
which dealt the right-hander his loss 10-1 in
the Early Bird Tournament.
"He's seen some quality teams so it was
nice to see him come out and have the win
that he had," Jackson said. "That's the sen-
ior leadership that we've been looking for.
We needed that."
After Dobson departed, though, the door

was opened for the Dragons, who scored
two runs against reliever Scott Green on an
error and doubles by Scott Blanchette and
Alex Delgado.
"We had some key hits and we had some
good things happen. We also made some
stupid mistakes late in the game," Jackson
said.
"We played really well until I made a few
substitutions and we made some stupid
errors." '
Yet while Green walked the first two bat-
ters and loaded the bases in the seventh, he
- allowed the rally to go no farther.
"Not to take anything away from Mort.

He's got those kids believing they can go
out and play, and they're doing a good job,"
Coomes said. "They come out, you heard
them in the dugout, they were ready to go.
We have loaded bases (and) we don't have
but maybe one or two guys standing up in
the dugout."
The Devils (5-3, 2-1), indeed, took full
advantage of their chances against both
Brandon Bierman (3-1) and reliever Eddie
Peifer.
"At this juncture you take them how you
can get them," Jackson said. "If errors are
the way you can get them then we'll take
them."

Halfway through the 53rd running of the
Race, there were few surprises regarding
the top three cars. The No. 1 Audi, skir-
mishing with the No. 2 car all day long,
held a slim 6.151-'second lead. Both the
Audis were gradually pulling away from
the No. 16 Lola, which was down a lap to
the Audis but was still poised for a move
during the final six hours.
Five GTI cars held positions four
through eight. The Nos. 4 and. 3 sister cars
were within shouting distance, running
fourth and fifth respectively, overall. A
scant 3.6 seconds separated the sweet-
sounding yellow Corvettes, but the duo was
down eight laps to the leading Audis. The
No. 57 Aston Martin was running third in

laps down in class. Rounding out third in
class and 14th overall was the No. 43
Porsche 911 shared by Tony Burgess, Mike
Rockenfeller and Martin Jensen.
Thirty-eight cars took the green flag at
10:46 a.m. Saturday, under near-perfect
conditions for drivers and Race fans alike.

Alex Job cars fall short in quest for



5th straight GT2 class win at Sebring


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Sophomore Chaz Abein retired 12 of the 13 batters he faced in relief
to pick up the win for Sebring on Friday.


RALLY
Continued from 1B
and Brian Henshaw in the
fourth made it 4-1 and brought
on freshman Abeln in relief.
Abeln was masterful, retiring
12 of the 13 he faced and the
last 10 in a row to pick up the
win in relief and lift Sebring to
6-4 overall and 3-0 in the dis-
trict.
"1 \Vas struggling up on the


mound," Kiko said. "I couldn't
locate my pitches. I felt good,
but I couldn't locate. Chaz
helped me. He came up big.
The whole team came up big."
The contribution of Abeln,
Tony Vazquez and sophomore
J.C. Shoop behind the plate was
no surprise to Rewis.
"They've been doing that all
year long," he said. "The young
kids are stepping up and that's
what they've got to do."


By JACK HARRIS
Special to The News-Sun
SEBRING Two orange
stickers on the press box race
progress board told the story,
each saying "retired."
It was a first for Alex Job, but
not a record he ever wanted to
experience. Both of his
Porsches failed to finish the 53
running of the 12 Hours of
Sebring, one a gearbox failure,
the other a blown engine. In his
racing career anywhere, includ-
ing 15 years at Sebring, Job has
never lost both cars the same
race.
Brian Cunningham, grandson
of the famed Briggs
Cunningham, was in the No. 24
Porsche when the gearbox fal-
tered. "The third gear stripped,
we don't know why, but we
came in and they rebuilt the


entire box and went back out."
It took! about two hours.
Cunningham said he
believed that third and fourth
gears were inverted, "and
besides being uncomfortable to
drive, it cost stress on the gear-
box and we lost fifth and sixth
gear."
He .added that the gear could
have been fixed but it would
have put more stress on the pit
crew and car. "If you don't
drive a minimum of seven
hours, you don't get points for
the race."
Job was more circumspect
about the gear problem but also
said iil wouldn't be worth the
effort to attempt a second
repair. "We have a problem
with the box. These are sequen-
tial gears and you flat-shift


them along with an electronic
control system. It could be the
electronics, I don't know.
"We have to find out before
Atlanta," the next stop on the
American Le Mans Series
schedule, the Grand Prix of
Atlanta on April 17.
The No. 24 car outlasted its
companion Porsche, finally
stopping after running just short
of five hours.
Job said he didn't know
exactly what happened to the
No. 23 engine. The car retired
just under three'hours into the
race. "It just blew. We won't'
know until we get it off the race
course," Job said
AJR Racing was aiming for a
fifth straight GT2 class victory
in the 12 Hours, but the failures
were a bitter disappointment for


Job and his team. The No. 24
car was privately financed, and
he has said it was "difficult get-
ting the funds for that car
because of Porsche cutting back
to only car this season."
Job's team won Sebring in
1999, came back in 2000 with
only one car and it did not fin-
ish. Since then, AJR Racing has
dominated Sebring's GT2 class
and is the defending champion
of the ALMS.
Cunningham said he was
delighted to have the opportuni-
ty to drive for Job.
"I've been wanting to drive
for Alex for a long time, ever
since I lost the championship in
'99 to Alex when I was in a
BMW. When he called a couple
of weeks ago, I jumped at the
opportunity."

Cunningham adds another

win to SPEED Touring record


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Raceway
came alive with competition
Friday morning as cars from the
popular SCCA Pro Racing
Speed World Challenge series
took on the historic 3.72-mile
road course.
Starting the day was the tour-
ing car series, the smaller of the
two divisions with engine dis-
placements up to 2.8 liters.
At the end of the 50-minute
sprint, it was SPEED all-time
career win leader Peter
Cunningham in his No. 42
ASPEC/RealTime Racing
Acura TSX who took the
checkered flag.
Cunningham credited his win
with his strategy of saving his
tires for the second half of the
race.
"I wasn't sure it was working
because those guys kept pulling
away from me and maintaining
a pretty good gap," he said.
One of "those guys" was
Randy Pobst, who led much of
the opening affair until his No.


73 MazdaSpeed/Tri-Point
Mazda lost power shortly after
loosing his exhaust assembly on
the bumpy airport circuit.
Defending SPEED touring
car champion Bill Auberlen -
a former 12 Hours winner -
missed his bid at winning three
consecutive Sebring events,
pulling in second, just a shade
under four' seconds behind
Cunningham. He said that

field to tinlsh third. Altenberg

a few laps under my belt and
just started passing people," he
said.
One of those people was Nic.
Jonsson, whom Altenberg
passed his Tecmark Autosport
BMW 325i on the final turn of
the last lap to get the podium
position. The move also earned
Altenberg the GS610 Harder,
Longer Braking Award.
"I got the inside on Nic,"
Altenberg said. "I could see his
tires were going away."
Kleinubing, who also was
able to keep racing after the ini-
tial turnaround, was in con-


tention until a problem with a
sensor forced him to make a pit
stop. Nevertheless, the
RealTime Racing' driver
grabbed the UrbanRacer.com
Award for turning the record
fastest lap at 2:21.936 around
the circuit.
All of the top four finishers
broke the existing track lap
record, with Cunningham's
2:22.338 (93.580 inph) leading,
the way.
For those who missed the
race, it will be rebroadcast on

Archer rules from start in SPEED GT


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The SCCA Pro
Racing Speed World Challenge
GT race Friday was the herald
of things to come, with big, fast,
production based vehicles run-
ning the Sebring International
Raceway in their season opener.
A quick hole shot for Tommy
Archer catapulted his No. 1
c3controls/3-R Racing Dodge
Viper from a standing start to
the front of .the field and he
never looked back.
In fact, nobody ever serious-
ly challenged Archer's bright
blue-and-yellow Viper for the
lead in the 50-minute sprint
around Sebring's storied, 17-
turn circuit.
"To me, the key was the
start," Archer said. "If I could
get Wolf (Henzler) at the start
and not have to be faster than
him in the corners then I could
control the race."
It was Henzler who held the
pole position in the No. 55
Farnsbacher Loles Motorsports
Porsche 911. It was a post he
held for approximately five sec-
onds as Archer shot off the line

World Challenge GT race Friday.


from the series"' trademark
standing start and beat him into
Turn 1.
Archer's race control was
enhanced as competitors diced
behind him for position.
"Those guys made my job
easier because they we're fight-
inq back there," he said. "That
allowed me to save the tires,


which was good because I was
sliding around there at the end."
Andy Pilgrim, who showed
one of the most spectacular runs
of the SPEED GT season last
year with his drive through the
field in the Cadillac CTS-V,
made another eye-popping pass
Friday afternoon carrying the
shiny black No. 8 from fourth to


second place. That move earned
Pilgrim both a podium finish
and the B&M Oil Coolers' Cool
Move of the Race award.
"It was a timing thing,"
Pilgrim said, accepting the
check. "We had scuffed tires
and that made a huge differ-
ence,"
Scotsman Robin Lidell
reeled off a series of impressive
laps in his AXA Financial/Pfaff
Porsche 911 and ran to a third-
place finish. He said it took him
a while to acclimate himself
and his ride to the track. But
things worked out as he took
the blue No. 66 from a 12th
place spot to third in the field
by the time te checkers flew.
"The car really bogged down
at the start," he said. "Coming
back I had. a few hair moments
and the car has some,marks on
it now, but nothing too bad."
Those wanting to see the
highlights of the race may view
it on SPEED television on
March 27 at 2 p.m. following
the rebroadcast of the Touring
car division competition held
Friday morning on the Sebring
circuit.

"We have proven numerous
tinies that we can build a win-
ning chassis."
He indicated there will be par-
allel programs, one .for open-
cockpit cars the other for a
closed-cockpit version.
"The closed design features
less drag while the open cockpit
will have a lower center of grav-
ity and more ballast to shift.
On Friday, Sportsbook.com

Matos motors to win



in Star Mazda race


By JACK HARRIS
Special to 77Te News-Sun
SEBRING Raphael Matos
worked his plan to perfection to
win the first of the season Star
Mazda Series race on Friday at
Sebring International Raceway.
"I wanted to. get a really good
start, and did, and took it from
there," he said after the 45-minute
race held under clear skies.
"It's terrific. The car was han-
dling well, the tires were fine.
Everything was perfect," Matos
said.He completed 20 laps in a time
of 40:41:935.
Matos started on the pole and
never lost the lead.
Matt Jaskol was second with a
40:46.948 time, and Graham Rahal,
son of Bobby Rahal, was third in
40:56.131.
Jaskol tried to keep up with
Matos early, but said, "we opened it
a little bit but fell back at the begin-
ning. There was some blocking."
Rahal laughed as he said it was
"the best start I've ever had."
He hasn't had much experience,
being a 16-year-old, just squeezing
in the Star Mazda series thanks to
his .birthday last Jan. 24.
"The car ran well and it's shock-
ing and amazing to me to finish
third," he said.
MEN
In another Friday support race,
Jeff Courtney got off to an early
lead but held on in the late stages to
claim first place in the GT class of
the Panoz Racing Series, also a 45-
minute event.
"I just tried to run smooth, just in
case because I saw could see him
coming," Courtney said, referring
to second-place finisher Barry
Ellis. Andrew Charbonneau was
third.
Michael Worrell finished first in
GTS by default after the other class
entry completed only nine laps.

moment at the start of Friday's race
when he slid through Turn 1.

Journeys of a Green Park rookie


I had a feeling it was going
to escalate, and it did.
Upon my first-ever visit,
Green Park seemed oddly ,
chilled out as I was wandering
around about noon, but shortly
before a 1:30 p.m. rendezvous
with my editor at the press
box, I had the feeling the
natives were getting restless.
I was granted the chance to TIME
go back out there, and I took ", -
full advantage. Or at least as CHUCKI
much advantage I could take .
and still be conscious to write this column.
Upon my return, I went back to a spot
that had seemed the center of the rather
subdued midday party, and spotted some-'
one who resembled a guy who frequented-a
lot of frat parties at my college. True to my
Suspicions, he admitted he'd been drinking"
since 8 a.m.
His current project involved the tool that-
is to frat parties, and apparently Green
Park, what the wrench is to pit row: the
beer bong.
It appeared at first that he was merely
using it in exchange for a show from ,
women passing by in the backs of pickup
trucks, but it turned out he also had the
noble goal of getting everyone in Green
Park sufficiently hammered. And I was
next.
Frat boy told he had a whole keg back at
his camp, while his Australian friend
waved the bong in front of my face. ,
"Oh, come on, mate, you're in Sebring!"
the Aussie pleaded.
After they gave up on me, he next tried
it on a pair of cops who just happened to
drive by. They both smiled and gave the
same "Aw shucks, I would, but I'm work-
ing" response that I did.
OK. So this was the Green Park every-
one's been telling me about.
Yet perhaps like the drivers in the 12
Hours itself, it seems the people in Green
Park have to pace themselves. Frat Boy
was laid back and chatting with friends
when I passed him on my way out around
3 p.m., and though he contended everyone
was merely hung over before 1 o'clock, it
seemed more like people were intentionally
taking it easy.
This was by no means the case in any of
my previous racing experiences, most of
which have been of the NASCAR variety


EOUT

MYRON


at Bristol Motor Speedway in
my native Tennessee. The fans,
like the cars there, know two
speeds: all out and crashed out.
While when given the choice
I would choose full-speed-ahead
party gear, a walk around Green
Park when the action takes a pit
stop has an odd charm to it. You
can admire the fans perched
atop their RV, lounging on what
looked to be their living room
couch, and ponder why on earth
anyone would name a blow-up


doll Edith.
Yet even the sound, which on the interior
of Green Park was far quieter than I
remember it being from the stands in
Bristol, was subdued. I only relented to
putting in my ear plugs when I crossed the
,foot bridge over to the infield.
When I got there, I arrived at what was
touted as the world's tallest inflatable
waterslide (a claim no doubt clouded by
the suspicion it took waterslide growth hor-
mone) at the same time as a crew from the
SPEED Channel. There were two attractive
girls having a go while the cameras rolled,
and'I was almost certain they would disap-
pear when the TV people did.
They didn't, and kept climbing up and
sliding down while onlookers staked out
spots along the landing area. God bless the
strange but growing popularity of inflatable
structures at crowded events.
Back in Green Park, I happened upon
bright yellow fliers that appeared to have
been strategically littered on the grounds,
advertising a Web site selling videos that
depicted "drunken mayhem" and an
"infield held hostage" at the "Mud Pit" of
1993.
It's always nice to be reminded that, for
now at least, the FCC has jurisdiction only
over broadcast television. But I do think
the Treasury Department should take
notice. In about 20 years, mark my words,
beads will mean everything, if they don't
already do. The dollar, the yen and the euro
don't stand a chance.
Then, in 2025, I can again take my walk
in Green Park, and this time be greeted not
with a sign that reads "Picture with Edith
$1," but "Picture with Ethel 20
beads."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Searching for

light in the fog
As my husband, Ken,
drove through the soupy
fog early in the morning on
the way to work, I dreaded
the thought that in a few
.minutes I'd be driving
through it alone.
Fog doesn't seem to
affect my husband the way
it does me. So I asked him
to pray for me on my drive
home.
Once on my own, I kept
to the roads where I knew
there would be light from
other cars and traffic lights.
For the most part, this
helped a lot, though the vis-
ibility was quite limited. I
imagined how a ship tossed
in a storm at sea must feel;
at last, the beacon from a
lighthouse shines and beck-
ons it to safety.
After making a few
stops, I finally headed for
home. But, going the rest
of the distance meant I'd
leave the comfort of the
traffic lights behind. I was
the first car going in that
direction and none were
approaching in the opposite
lane. Wrapped in an even
lower, misty cloud cover, I
took a deep breath.
As the vapor thickened
around me, I prayed, "Lord,
please help me to follow
the yellow lines in the road
,and know where to turn."
Just ahead, I saw the
headlights of a car in the
opposite lane and the defi-
nite curve of the lines alert-
ed me to my turning lane.
Several more headlights
strategically illumined the
way for me and I safely
made my turn. But I much
-prefer those-uhmarred,
cloudless da s
As I think of Palm
Sunday, I imagine how
clear things music hae
appeared to the disciples on
that day of celebration.
They felt a measure of
security in he adulation of
the crowd as the people
hailed the Lord.
"Hosanna! Blessed is he
who comes in the name of
the Lord! Blessed is the
coming kingdom of our
father David! Hosanna in
the highest!" (Mark 11: 9 &
10, NIV)
It's like the security we
feel on a clear day when
yellow lines and traffic
lights are well-defined
instead of being obscured
by fog.
But Jesus had been
warning them of the
impending doom that
would come. He had been
telling them that he must
suffer and die to accom-
plish all that had been writ-
ten in the Scriptures about
him.,
When Good Friday came
and Jesus was betrayed and
put to death, the disciples
were eclipsed by a fog that
draped them like a shroud
and cast a pall over their
hopes.
The. gfoped along, try-
ing to find their way in the
shadows of uncertainty and
bewilderment. He was the
Messiah. the\ knew that.
Then, why did he suffer and

DADDY'S





SURPRISE


Sergeant returns


home to meet


students who touched


a lot of soldiers' lives


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Whoever said that
"big things come in
small packages"
knew' what they
were talking about; because
Linda Henley's class of first
graders, at Heartland Christian
School, can testify to that.
Henley's class had a special
visitor Thursday afternoon
when Sgt. Leon Thomas took a
leave from Iraq to come to the
school where his daughter,
Briah, attends and surprised her
and her classmates.
. Briah, one of Henley's stu-
dents, moved back to her home-
town of Sebring from Fort
Drum, N.Y., last July after her
father was deployed to Iraq to
serve his tour of duty for the
U.S. Army. It was very difficult
for Briah to hear the news that
her father was going overseas.
She had never been apart from
him for so long before, .and her
reldtiohship with her fathei has
always been very close.
Briah's mother, Sebrena, said
of the experience, "We lived on
a military base and we know
that when the uniform' changes
from the green to the khaki that
a deployment is coming up.
Briah saw our neighbors change
to that and it was hard for her.
She asked me a lot of questions
arid said, 'My daddy's not
'gonna have to go,' and I said
'Well, we're at a deployable
base and there's a possibility he
might have to go, I just don't
know when.'" Only two months
later her father came home with
deployment papers and the
dreaded news that he would be
leaving.
Leon's, wife gave him the
task of explaining to his daugh-
ter what was going to happen.
Sebrena said her husband told
her, "Sometimes other countries
need support and we're going
over there to help them."
According to Sebrena, "she
knew all about Sept. 11 and the
bad guys, B.in Laden and
Hussein," and asked if her
daddy was going over there to
get them. Sebrena said her hus-
band explained to her, "Daddy's


going over there to get them so
they can't hurt anybody else."
Before moving to Sebring,
Sebrena said of Briah, "She
used to cry a lot because she
missed him and she knew what
was going on." But after the
school year ended her mother
took her 'to Florida to be with
family and friends.
Since arriving here things
have been much easier for her,
not just because she has her
cousins, aunts, uncles and
friends around, but also because
of a very special teacher and
exceptional classmates at
Heartland Christian School.
"She's gained a lot of friends
and she really loves her school.
People have just reached out
and all the love and support has
helped her a lot," Sebrena said.
Not only has Briah received a
lot of support but, thanks to her
teacher and school, so have an
entire platoon of American sol-
diers.
Brian s teacher, Henley,
'\hose father was a veteran,
approached Sebrena last August
with the idea of having her class
write to Briah's father. It was
then that Sebrena informed her
of the many other men in her
husband's company who were
single and weren't receiving as
much correspondence as they
could use. That was the begin-
ning of what would become a
massive effort that would
impact many men in ways that
can't even be put into words.
Initially the class began col-
lecting items to send over for
Christmas, which they sent,
along with cards they had made.
But what began in that small
class quickly caught on and
became a schpolwide effort.
They are still collecting items at
the office.

An impact
The impact on the soldiers
has been phenomenal. Leon
told of the day he first learned
of the extent of the support they'
were receiving in a letter he
addressed to the students,
teachers, faculty and parents of
the students at Heartland
Christian writing, "One. of the
soldiers stated to me that he had

United States Arm. Sergeant Leon Thomas and his wife, Sebrena, surprise their daughter, Briah, 7, dur-
ing school Thursda3 afternoon at Heartland Christian School in Sebring. Thomas is currently stationed
in Iraq and hasn't seen his daughter in nine months.


received a letter from one of the.
students at my daughter's
school. I was shocked, but you
never know what these soldiers
are up to. Later on that day
another soldier came to me and
mentioned the same thing and it
kept going and going like the
Energizei bunny rabbit. I final-
ly became con inced that they
were, no joking, receiving let-
ters from the kind folks back
home. I don't think that Kobe
Bryant or Arnold Palmer gets
this much fan mail."
The following excerpts from
that letter further exemplify the
impact this small school and
young children have made in
the lives of Leon and the men of
his platoon:
"It has really brought tears to
my heart and an overwhelming
appreciation for my community
and the great folks who live in
it. Who woLld ever have
thought that such a small home
grown to become such! a pleasant and


well known place stretched all
the way to the sands of Iraq.
"Through your letters, shar-
ing of experiences, and care,
you have really become part of
these great soldiers. I tell you
they really, really, really,. really
times 2 million and more,
appreciate all that you are doing
to make this stay not as bad as it
'really is. You have spread your
wings and landed on the other
side of the map. Your notoriety
has come to be known to some
distant strangers fighting to pre-
serve and' spread freedom and
democracy for all mankind who
now can say we are strangers no
more.
"It really touched me to hear
my wife speak of all of the folks
that know her, or Briah, I
should say, or strangers who
just approach her in public and
express their concerns and tell
her that they have me and all the
soldiers in their prayers and
wish all of us a safe and speedy
return. That makes us all feel so
special, awesome, and proud. I
thought of it, how many folks


walk up to Tiger Woods and
say, 'Hey, Tiger, got you in my
prayers.' How many folks walk
up to Donald Trump and. say,
'Hey Donald, got you in my
prayers man.' How many walk
up to the president and say,
'Hey Georgy, got you in my
prayers dude.' Even your moms
and pops, how many of you
walk up to them and say, 'Hey
mom and pop, got ya'll in my
prayers?'"
The letter these excerpts
came from was loaded with
quotable quotes and filled with
heartfelt sentiment and emo-
tion. But, when asked in person
what impact this school and its
students have had on the men
they have been supporting, the
reply was profound and deep.
"We have hydration packs
that we use over here called
camel packs. These are like
backpacks with water in them
and they have a tube that you
can put directly into your mouth
and drink from. It's very hot

ARTS & LEISURE



March brings out interest Dvoraks to demonstrate ballroom


It was a lot of fun
painting faces at the
county fair on
Valentine's Day.
Hearts, flowering
hearts, joined hearts,
even bicolor hearts,
were all part of the
repertoire of red and
pink designs, with an
occasional blue one
by request.
March's designa-
tion as National Craft
Month gives us a


chance to be more creative.
With so many crafts- to
choose from and so many books
to get you started, you'll never
be bored! Turn off that televi-
sion or computer and come to
your libraries. Start by looking
for easy crafts that will soon
have you coming back for
more, finding out you have,
more abilities than you thought,
and helping you create some
memorable gifs for friends and
family, i
Perhaps one of the least
expensive and most readily
available craft projects begins
with flour, salt and water.
Doughcraft projects require no
special tools or skills and are a
great choice when the grand-
children come t6 visit.
Check out the Linda Rogers'
book 55 "Counry Doughcraft
Designs" and yo 'll learn what
a lot of fun it is to make fruit,
leaves, animals, wreaths of all
sizes, and wai decorations,
including plaques of the four
seasons, a harvest plaque, even
little hats. (RPd Hat Society


ladies, take note!)
Pardon me while I
cool my burned fin-
gers. I knew it was
going to be risky tak-
ing home "Wild With
a Glue Gun." This
isn't your regular
craft book, as it advo-
cates forming a craft
LINES group (because
women who do
lyn things with their
?link hands have more fun
- and live longer). The
book lists gift ideas,
what to put in a portable art
box, and 65 charming craft
projects that would be fun to do
even if you don't have a group
around you.
Enlarge your vision of what
crafts are by browsing through
our book "Photo Art & Craft."
Here's a plethora of ways to use
photography as a craft.
Adhere travel or garden pic-
tures to wood blocks or coaster
tiles. Make a photo label for a
bottle or a box used for a spe-
cial occasion, or make a photo
quilt. Use your computer to
manipulate photos for your
very own note cards, or label
drawers with photos. You can
even make a wooden pull toy
from an enlarged photo of 'your
pet.
This book is filled with
imagination and practical appli-
cations for using your photo-
graphs, such as making a game
board, magnetic paper dolls, or
dusting off your old slides and
making them into a -lamp and
matching shade!
"Better Homes and Gardens


Country Stenciling" introduces
you to the art of making place
mats, and decorating wood
plates, jewelry boxes, table run-
ners, picnic baskets, wooden
cutouts, even customizing a lap
desk.
Here's a cheap but fun proj-
ect check out the Clive
Stevens book "Paper Craft
School" and learn about curl-
ing, crumpling, folding, tearing,
scoring, embossing, cutting,
piercing, and coloring. I'll bet
you didn't know there were so
many ways to make things out
of paper!
So what can you make with
these techniques? You'll find
out how to make pop-ups (won-
derful table decorations), create
scenes that change using sliding
mechanisms (this is all paper,
you realize), origami paper
folding of boxes and bags for
special gifts, have the pattern
for making your own
envelopes, discover paper
weaving for frames, book-
marks, book covers, greeting
cards or baskets. Don't forget
our old school favorite papi-
er mache.
Got grandbabies? "The Stick
It, Stitch It and Stuff It
Toybook" is a treasure of quick-
to-do soft toys with personality.

SEBRING Jerry and
Nikki Dvorak will be perform-
ing ballroom dancing at the
Sebring Civic Center at 7 p.m.,
Friday, March 25.
The Highlands Social Dance
Club invited the Dvoraks to
demonstrate ballroom dancing
and promote it locally.
The Dvoraks have been ball-
room dancing for about 12
years. They started dancing in a
social situation but developed
the desire to dance competi-
tively and began taking private
lessons with an eye toward
competing in all categories.
When Jerry developed
arthritis in his hips, they took
an eight-month break and then
returned to the international
standard style of discipline,
which was least aggravating to
the hips.
Nikki had knee surgery in
October, and they've been
working on basic figures and
technique while recuperating.
They feel going back to the
basics has improved all their
choreography and technique.
The Dvoraks love to perform
in exhibitions and shows and
compete about once a month in
pre-championship and champi-
onship level competitions.
They recently won the pre-
championship at the Royal
Palm U.S. Amateur Ballroom
Dance Association and placed
in the finals for the champi-
onship.
Their next competition will
be the 2005 Derby City
Regional in Louisville, Ky.,
the Baton Rouge Regional and
Nationals later this summer.
Admission is $5 for mem-
bers of the Highlands Social
Dance Club and $6 for non-
members. Soft drinks and ice
will be sold. Those attending
may bring their 'own refresh-
ments.

An inspirational thought
^ 'Romans 5:6-8, "For when
we ivwere still without
strength, in due time Christ
T.died for the ungodly. For
-. m^,scarce,' for a righteous Inn
will one die; yet perhaps 'f
a good inaII someone WO
even dare to die, But God
demonstrates His oivwn love toward us, in that
while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
In this scripture Paul explains the nature of
God's love. The word of God says He loved us
even when we were still without strength and
ungodly. God loved us so much according to
verse eight, hlie sent His son to die for us. As
the song writer wrote the words, "Oh what a
love." God's love cd6 be compared to the
love of anyone else. 7e.s us just the way
we are, but vet, He Ivesglis too much to leave
us the way we are. Be etouraged!

I L .... I I


Heartland Christian School Headmaster David Noel greets Sgt. Leon Thomas upon his arrival at the
school. Thomas came to the school directly from the airport still dressed in fatigues.


SURPRISE
Continued from 1C
and dry and these packs -are the
most necessary things. The let-
ters and things sent to us from
these kids are like water for the
soul," Leon explained.

He elaborated, stating,
"Some care packages you
receive on a one time basis; but
these kids have kept it going. It
is really emotional for me,
because these are kids who felt
what we were going through.
Kids haven't had anything
placed in their minds and they
express themselves, in inno-
cence. What they say they real-
ly mean. They're not scripted
by our culture to say anything
just because it's the 'right thing
to say.'"


Coming home
Leon was recently granted a
two-week leave and immediate-
ly called his wife. The phone
call came to Sebrena from her
husband with the news that he
was on his way home.
Sebrena and faculty mem-
bers at Briah's school pulled off
perhaps the most emotional sur-
prise of all times by keeping
Leon's return a secret and
arranging for him to arrive at
the school Thursday in uniform
to see his daughter for the first
time in nine months, and meet
the students who have been so
loving and generous for so
many months.
Briah, who has missed her
daddy every day for so long and
prayed for him every time she
prayed a mealtime blessing and
every night when she went to
bed, was shocked at his arrival.'


"We went in the cafeteria and
when we were .getting ready to
take a picture my dad walked
in. I was really surprised," she
stated. "It took me a minute to
recognize who it was; then I
went and jumped up on his
neck. We had made Easter cards
for the soldiers and gave them
to him and he said he would
take them to them."
She is now looking forward
'to spending two weeks with one
of her most favorite people in
the world, her daddy, of whom
she says she is very proud.
While she admitted that she
will be sad to see him go back
again, she knows that he will be
coming back soon; and this
reunion will, no doubt, go a
long way toward easing the hol-
low in her heart during the last
leg of her courageous and patri-
otic daddy's tour.

The nine principles of a Florida yard


.. H a v e
you ever
purchased
a plant that
looked
great at the
nursery,
... only to
.. L have it die
-K 'once you
GROWING plant it?
You can
SEASON avoid this
heartbreak'-
Highlands ing scenario
County Master by putting
Gardeners the right
i-- plant in the
right place, that is, by matching
the plant to the site conditions.
Drought tolerant plants
should be used on elevated dry
spots, windy areas, exposed
areas, planting on berms, and
along the unshaded southern or
western walls of buildings.
Plant in groups according to
their water, fertilizer and main-
tenance needs. Separate lawn
from landscape beds.
Plant selection is the fun part
of landscaping. Florida's cli-
mate supports countless vari-
eties of plants. The plants you
select determine the level of
maintenance required and also
how long your landscape will
last.
Watering efficiently
Homeowners in many parts
of Florida are becoming accus-
tomed to water restrictions that
limit irrigation to certain days
and times. Of course we don't
need to worry about that at the
present time.
Over-watering depletes our
water supply, often makes
plants prone to pest, and adds to
stormwater runoff which pol-
lutes our water system.
By choosi'ig and operating a
watering system correctly, you
can reduce water bills, insect
and disease problems, and
maintenance requirements. The
more you water the faster your
lawn and weeds grow and the
more it needs to be mowed.
Add mulch
A layer of mulch around
trees, shrubs, planted beds and
on any exposed soil area can
provide many benefits.
Mulches can replace turf or
ground covers in areas that are
difficult to mow, irrigate or oth-
erwise maintain.
Mulch moderates soil tem-
perature: it keeps soils warmer
in the winter and cooler in the
summer. Maintain a total depth
of two to three inches.
Recycle yard waste
Yard waste generated by

Cowboys for Christ
chapter meeting
Thursday in Venus
PALMDALE Cowboys
for Christ and Lasso Ministries
will meet Thursday at the
Venus Club on County Road
731 off Clubhouse Road.
A program of food and fel-
lowship will begin at 6 p.m.
Gospel music and a message
will be delivered at 7.
The public is welcome.


landscape maintenance activi-
ties such as mowing, pruning,
or raking can be returned to the
soil, recycling valuable nutri-
ents. Composting or mulching
with yard wastes helps reduce
the amount of solid waste to be
hauled away.
Fertilize appropriately
Fertilizers are generally used
to achieve a specific goal: more
larger bloom, faster growth,
greener leaves or more fruit. If
one of these is your goal, you
basically have three choices:
using composted organic mate-
rial, applying packaged fertiliz-
er or apply a specific mineral
such as iron.
Control pests reponsibly
The environment and the
increasing resistance of pest to
chemical have forced home-
owners to reconsider practices
they once took for granted.
Most people don't realize that,
in general, nature takes pretty
good care of itself. Healthy
plants can usually fend off pest
attacks, while predatory insects
and birds may keep undesirable
insects under control.
