Remains



identified as



missing man

Another person still missing
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
Investigators say bones discovered near Avon Park'now
have been positively identified as the remains of Lawrence
Davis.
Highlands County Sheriff's Detective John Chess went to
Bartow with Avon Park Detective Jason Lister Tuesday and
met with District 10 Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Nelson
where they made the positive identification.
According to a release by Avon Park Police Chief Frank
Mercurio, the determination was made based on bone features,
identifiable clothing and witness statements.
It was in November last year that youngsters playing along
the shore of Lake Damon found a skull partially buried in the
muck.
Later, the area was excavated by crime scene personnel and
additional remains were found as well as some clothing that
was similar to that Davis had worn on occasion.
It was Aug. 12, 2002, the 77-year-old Avon Park man
climbed aboard his trademark three-wheeled bicycle and left
the Verona Avenue residence where he had been staying. He
later disappeared.
He had lived at the home of Joe and Caretha Washington
since the late 1960s. She was one of the ones who had been
asked about clothes found near the remains at Lake Damon.
"The clothes look like the ones he wore," she said.
After he'd gone, Davis' absence was not noted right away.
He was gone for the greater part of the weekend because the
Washingtons believed he'd gone to the home of a family
friend.
"We thought he had gone to Mrs. Love's house," Caretha
Washington had said at the time. "We didn't think too much
about it until they said they hadn't seen him."
It was then an intensive search began including the activa-
tion of the "A Child is Missing" system. In all there were 1,100
telephone calls made in-a-grid area to see if anyone had seen
the missing man.
Following his disappearance, Avon Park police received
several reports of a man who residents thought might be Davis

Many chances available for


those in search of Easter eggs


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
Easter arrives this weekend and that means
egg hunts and there will be plenty of opportuni-
ties to go in search of the brightly colored orbs
all over Highlands County.
For the fourth consecutive year, officials of
the Sebring Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association will host its annual
Easter Egg Hunt.
That event will be from 9 a.m. to noon and
will feature games, music and dancing along
with the annual hunt.
"We're going to split it into segments," said
DMPA secretary Diana Hirsh, who has been
helping to organize the activities.
From 9- 9:30 a.m. will be fun and games for
the youngsters. Robby Viera and Tyler Hirsh


have signed on to handle the disc jockey duties
for the morning's festivities.
To start with there'll be dancing and music.
"They'll do the Chicken Dance, the Electric
Slide, the Bunny Hop and that new Cha-cha
Slide that is so popular," Hirsh said.
Beginning at 10 a.m. will be the Easter egg
hunt for those 4 years of age and younger, fol-
lowed by an egg hunt for ages 5-8 at 10:20 a.m.
In all, volunteers have stuffed 6,000 eggs for
the event.
Starting at 10:45 a.m. there will be prizes
available for everybody else.
"We call it our 9 to 99 division," she said.
Those presents will be given away by a num-
ber of different means. There will be a pinata

the week, or the time of the day.
Unfortunately, this hot line was phased out of
existence in 1995.
Child advocates in Hlig hlands County, however,
had enough faith in its usefulness to organize local
support and reinstate the hot line 18 months later.
Now called the We Care Hot Line, it is still free,
but administered locally, entirely funded by pri-


vate dollars.
Staffed with volunteers, the We Care Hot Line
has the staunch backing of the Children's Services
Council, even though over the last five years there
has been a downward trend in the number of teens
Suing the hotline.
For example, in 2000 there
were 274 calls made, but last year
only 162.

SEBRING Governor Jeb
Bush and his administration are
reorganizing the structure coun-
ties use in dealing with the state
on early education issues.
Traditionally each county
has had its own school readi-
ness (or early readiness) coali-
tion, which served as an avenue
of communication between the
state and the local school board,
and acted as a facilitator locally.
For example, the new Voluntary
Prekindergarten program will
be administered locally by the
coalitions.
Bush's goal is to reduce the
number of coalitions from the
present total of 67 to 30 or
fewer.
Some people support this
restructuring as an economic
and efficiency improvement,
but others say it weakens local
control.
One thing is certain, in order
to have fewer coalitions, coun-
ties will have to merge. The
state left the details of this
redistribution up to the coun-
ties, which were to work out
their own arrangements based
on state developed formulas.
Highlands County, after
research and negotiation,
entered into a merger agree-
ment with Osceola County, but
real differences have emerged
as the April 1 signing deadline
approaches.
While the problems a smaller


district has when dealing with a
larger district were expected
from the beginning, and there
were significant differences in
how the two counties deliver
their services, it wasn't until the
bylaws for the new merged
coalition were discussed that a
possibly deal breaking philo-
sophical conflict emerged.
The Highlands County coali-
tion wants specific bylaws
drawn up, which adhere to the
letter of the law. The Osceola
coalition prefers vague and
generic bylaws.
"I don't want to be involved
with vagueness." Doris Gentry,
chairwoman of the school
readiness coalition, said. "We
need to be very careful because
it's just a mess folks."
Kevin Roberts, director of
human services for Highlands
County and executive director
of the Children's Services
Council, voiced the coalition's
concerns. "It's a shame to see
the whole thing crumble over
the bylaws," he said. "But it's a
heads up that we have to be
careful because they want
stronger input. They're twice
our size and think we're hay
seeds. There are red flags, and it
concerns me."
The coalition voted unani-
mously to explore the possibili-
ty of breaking off the merger
agreement with Osceola and
joining with Charlotte and
DeSoto counties instead.

Methamphetamines


Residents, store clerks can help detect labs


By PHIL ATTINGER
Newfs-Sull
SEBRING Methamphetamine labs are toxic, haz-
ardous messes that require special handling by law
enforcement and a lot of taxpayer funds to clean up.
And more of them are showing up in Central Florida:
"mom and pop" labs that only cover a lull in the steady
supply from large West Coast or Mexico labs.
According to Drug Enforcement Administration
Public Information Office, Highlands County has the
highest incidence of methamphetamine in the five-
county area of Highlands, Indian River, Martin,
Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties. Okeechobee was
second, but statewide, Bay County in the Panhandle
has the highest number of meth labs.

Toxic labs
In 2001, the DEA cleaned up one lab in the five-
county; it was in Highlands County. In 2002, there was
two in the area. By 2003, there were 15, and by 2004,
there were 20.
In January 2004, the DEA cleaned up a lab on
Corvair Avenue in Sebring. The high volume of mate-
rials and how they were stored in Mason jars lead
the DEA to bring in a contracted hazardous materials
team.
The house sat near a day care two doors down on the
other side of the street. One neighbor had been over-
come by fumes while working on his lawn. Reportedly,
the lab operators were burning the waste materials in a
pit behind the house each night.
A meth lab can produce 10 pounds of waste for every
one pound of the drug produced. Lab operators will dis-
pose of the waste wherever they can. As lab operators
often use the drug themselves, they will get less cau-
tious about keeping the lab secret.

Sick users
Methamphetamine is one of the most addictive drugs
in use. It keeps people up for days on end one defen-
dant even claimed to be up for 46 days straight. After
only 24-48 hours without sleep, average people will
begin to hallucinate and commit serious acts of vio-
lence.

The chemicals in the drug are not "normal dietary
supplements," a DEA expert said. It literally corrodes
the body from the inside out. Doctors may not see the
full damage of these drugs for years, DEA experts said.
Many users have "meth mouth" their teeth falling
out from destroyed gums. Dental work alone on
inmates and prisoners costs taxpayers thousands of dol-
lars.

Costly cleanup
Hazardous waste from a lab costs the taxpayers
about $3,000 to clean up, which is about 10 percent of
what it would cost in the private sector without a gov-


progress

Depending on the method used,
the cooker may substitute lithium
batteries for the matchbooks and
anhydrous ammonia for the
iodine.
If people are seen purchasing
these items in bulk in one pur-
chase or subsequent purchases,
there is a possibility they could be
operating a meth lab.
Always call law enforcement to
inxesugate possible labs.


than would d be normal.
Dumping garbage in the woods or desened
roads is a crime by itself. It also could indicate a meth
lab, since people who have such labs would not want
the \waste products associated with them. This would
be especially true of muriatic acid bottles being
tossed b) someone who does not have a pool.
Anyone with information on methamphetamine
labs or distributors are urged to protect their environ-
ment, neighborhood, home and family by calling
anonymously to the sheriff's office at 402-7200 or
Cnme Stoppers at (800) 266-8477.

emrnment contract. Small labs those that produce only
a pound or less of the drug can cost $4,000-$ 10,000
to clean up, the DEA stated.
That cost is passed to the defendant as part of his or
her fine, but when the inmate begins paying it back
after a jail sentence, very little is helping defray the cost
of enforcement and cleanup.
The U.S. Attorney's office has taken a hard line on
prosecuting cases of crack cocaine or methampheta-
mine because they are very addictive and have a high
level of violence associated with them. Anyone even
associated with a meth lab may end up with federal
charges.


Everyone taken to hospital from U.S. 27 wreck


SEBRING At 12:52 p.m.
Wednesday, a 1992 Toyota crossed the
southbound lanes of U.S. 27 into the
path of a 2005 BMW.
The wreck sent both drivers and a pas-
senger in the Toyota to Florida Hospital
, in Seli,ng.., .; ,




Although the copy was cor-
rect, the headline in
Wednesday's News-Sun incor-
rectly identified Senator Bill
Nelson as a Congressman. The
News-Sun regrets this error.


Florida Highway Patrol reports that
Rajneesh S. Dorsey, 18, of Sebring, was
pulling out of Thunderbird Road in the
Toyota, heading for the median to head
north on U.S. 27. Meanwhile, Frances
Curtis, 50, of Sebring, was southbound
in the, Tli Tcane of the highway. Curtis'


BMW hit the Toyota in the left front
quarter, then crossed the northbound
lanes, coming to a rest on the far shoul-
der.
The Toyota spun around clockwise
and came to a rest in the center lane.
Curtis wasn't wearing a seat belt, but


Rajneesh Dorsey was, as was his passen-
ger, Rosalyn Dorsey, 40.
All three received serious injuries in
the wreck, according to FHP reports. All
three were treated and released.
FHP charged Rajneesh with violation
of the right of way.

Race weekend sees 41 arrests on


drug, alcohol, and fight charges


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING By Sunday, the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office had seen as many as 41
arrests on various charges at the
Sebring International Raceway.
Overall, however, the sher-
iff's office had assisted in mov-
ing and policing 165,000 spec-
tators at this year's Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring four-day race
weekend 5,000 more than
last year, with few major inci-
dents at the Raceway. Sheriff
Susan Benton especially
thanked the community for its
cooperation, especially resi-
dents and businesses that were
affected by the traffic. Traffic
flowed well, with no serious
backups or wrecks.
The biggest number of
arrests were for possession of
marijuana, one of those being
sale of marijuana by Tyler
Mallows of Chatham, Mass.,
who allegedly sold a marijuana
joint to an undercover officer
for $5 last Thursday.
In the case of this and most
other arrests, alleged offenders
were not only arrested and
charged, but deputies seized
their race tickets as well. If they
returned to the Raceway, they
would be charged with trespass-
ing.
Four unnamed persons were
charged with affray fighting
- during the weekend. Two
others were taken into custody
for their own protection
because they were intoxicated.
Jovanie Cintron, 23, of West
Palm Beach, was charged with


battery. Three people were
charged Saturday with under-
age possession of alcohol,
including Jack Conners
Bumside, 18, and Troy Edward
Clemenz, 18, both of Vero
Beach, and an unidentified 17-
year-old.
William James Donahoe
III, 48, of Bartow, was charged
on Thursday with possession of
more than 20 grams of cannabis
and possession of drug para-
phernalia, with bail set at
$1,500.
At 9:03 p.m. Thursday,
undercover officers at the
Raceway saw Donahoe sitting
in the front of a motor home
smoking what appeared to be a
marijuana joint. They knocked
on the door and Donahoe
answered. They could smell the
odor of burnt marijuana.
They read him Miranda
warnings and searched him. He
had a small amount of marijua-
na in his left front pocket. He
told them he had more inside
the motorhome.
He took the detectives inside
and pointed to a black overnight
bag. One of the detectives
removed about 24.5 grams of
marijuana and found a blue
smoking pipe beside the seat
where Donahoe was sitting.
The owner of the motorhome
- Richard Jeffrey Wilkes, age
unknown also was searched
and officers found 4.5 grams of
marijuana and a pack of Job 1.0
rolling papers on him. He was
charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana and
of drug paraphernalia.


At 5:11 p.m. Friday, an
officer could smell burnt
cannabis coming from a nearby
vehicle, which had stopped for
traffic at the Raceway. The
smell got stronger as he
approached the passenger side
of the vehicle.
When he looked inside, he
could see partially burnt
cannabis, so both Thomas
Meador Barnett, 25, and Robert
B. Kelley, 25, both of Atlanta,
were removed and secured.
While the two were standing
outside, officers saw Kelley
remove a plastic bag from his
front waist and throw it to the
ground. He then began to kick it
away.
Officers retrieved it. It con-
tained four grams of cannabis.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Barnett said
he'd been smoking a cannabis
cigarette which was in the ash
tray.
Officers charged Kelley with
felony tampering with evi-
dence, and possession of less
than 20 grams of cannabis and
of drug paraphernalia, with bail
set at $2,000. Barnett was
charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of cannabis and
of drug paraphernalia. His bail
was $1,000.
Another man Carl Peter
Nystrom, 43, of West Palm
Beach was charged with
trespass after warning on
Sunday, after being kicked out
of the Raceway Saturday for
possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis.


Turner charged with concealed firearm


News-Sun
AVON PARK On Friday,
March 11, while patrolling, a
police officer saw Dejson L.
Turner, 18, walking along
Fourth Street.
As the officer passed, Turner
allegedly kept his gaze to the
ground and didn't allow his arm
to swing naturally. ,,Since his
shirt was baggy, the officer sus-
pected he might be concealing
something under it.
He stopped and talked to
Turner, who appeared to be
keeping his right side away
from the officer. When asked if
he had anything under his shirt,
Turner lifted his outer shirt and
said no. However, his under-
shirt had a bulge in it, near his
right waist, which looked like

times. He lost sight of him as he
ran around a residence. Turner

Cox talks about half-cent tax Lake Verona opening for
Easter weekend, but

If levy passes voters, it would give j I P YZ Tulane will remain closed


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
the newly formed Ivory Club
heard from Highlands County
Superintendent of Schools
Wally Cox Wednesday night
about the proposed half-cent
sales tax slated to go before vot-
ers in May.
School officials have pro-
posed the levy in an effort to
start construction of new class-
room facilities. Cox said the
proposal is not so much in
response to the recently passed
class size amendment to the
Florida Constitution, as it is a
planning mechanism for pro-
jected growth in the schools.
"We are using a 3.5 percent
figure," Cox said, "but I have
talked with local developers
who seem to think that is a very
conservative number."
The meeting was one of the
first. of 55 presentations Cox
said he has booked for the nine-
minute PowerPoint presenta-
tion with a subsequent question
and answer session.
In the initial presentation,
viewers are told that currently
the school system is serving
12,000 students. Of those,
2,600 are housed in temporary
classrooms called
portables. Over the next 20
years, it is predicted that those
numbers will double.
The board has proposed three
solutions passing a bond
issue, instituting impact fees or
instituting the half-cent sales
tax. Cox said none of the solu-
tions would provide all of the
needed funds. However, it is
believed that the sales tax
would come the closest.
In the question and answer
session, it was suggested that
the school board consider
achieving its goal through a
blended system, such as using
an impact fee on new construc-
tion in addition to the half-cent
sales tax. The idea was that new
construction would be the main
source of adding new students
in the system.


Cox pointed out that the pro-
posed half-cent sales tax would
have a shelf life of 20 years
before it would cease. He called
the consumer tax the "most
fair" way of raising money, not-
ing that the assessment would
be paid by anyone purchasing
goods in Highlands County.
He suggested the proposed
sales tax could raise as much as
$159 million over two decades.
The superintendent also,
pointed out that the money
would only be used for capital
needs, technology initiatives
and equipment for school oper-
ation.
Some members of the crowd
wondered aloud what effect the
additional half-cent tax would
have on commerce. They noted
that it would give Highlands the
highest tax rate in the immedi-
ate area.
There are 58 of the 67 coun-
ties that have an additional sales
tax -- including Highlands'
extra penny on the dollar sales
tax for infrastructure. Of those
58, 15 counties have sales tax
levies for school needs.
Cox displayed tentative plans
for how the money would be
spent. those included the con-
struction of new classrooms at
existing schools to maximize
student capacity and minimize
the use of portables. He also
foresaw the renovation of vari-
ous sites to expand cafeterias
and music and physical educa-
tion facilities.
.The money also could be
used to replace roofs and air
conditioning units and upgrade
classroom equipment for voca-
tional, fine arts and athletic pro-
grams.
Cox said this is the first time
since the bond issue of 1969
that the school board has pro-
posed such an initiative. He
touted the system's record of
school maintenance as one of
the reasons that the buildings
have lasted for so long.
"Some of our facilities are 50
years old but we have taken
care of them, and they will

the sales tax, Cox said that

measure was passed by voters.

AVON PARK It's good
news and bad news for Avon
Park lakes. Lake Verona will be
open in time for the Easter
weekend but Lake Tulane will
remain closed.
This week officials from the
Highlands County Health
Department released test fig-
ures showing that Lake Verona
was within satisfactory bacteri-
al levels for human contact.
"I had one of my guys go and
take down the no swimming
signs," said Avon Park
Recreation Director Tony
Anderson Thursday afternoon.
The lakes have been closed
since November due to high
levels of contaminants. Preston
Colby, who has been testing the


lakes for the city, attributes the
levels of contaminants to flocks
of seagulls that winter in the
area.
"They are the true snow-
birds," Colby said.
The seagull problem is only
with Lake Verona, which is
closed between November and
the end of March.
"It's such a problem, we just
close it rather than to continue
testing it," said Avon Park City
Manager C.B. Shirey.
Meanwhile, the bacterial
analysis taken by Colby on
Lake Tulane shows it still is not
within safe parameters. It will
remain closed until the bacteri-
al levels reach acceptable stan-
dards.

SEBRING A motorcy-
''11 l Fi "6i ;fas "fo' n' to
a pIa Genieral 'Hospital
" alet reeking Wedhesday
night on DeSoto Road.
Bruce W. Moltz, 45,;of
Sebring, reportedly ran off
the road on his 1990 Honda
to avoid a car that was back-
ing out of a driveway. No
charges have been filed. The
Florida Highway Patrol is
investigating the accident.

The accident occurred
shortly after 8 p.m. on
DeSoto Road, about 500
yards from the intersection
of Highlands Avenue. Police
reports said Phyllis E.
Angell, 71, of Sebring, was
backing out of a private
driveway in a 2001 Nissan
to head in the opposite
direction.
According to the investi-
gating trooper, a witness
said Angell never crossed
the center line and that
Moltz had room to maneu-
ver.
Moltz's wife was follow-
ing him in a car. After the
accident, she immediately
drove him to Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
He was later flown to
Tampa General Hospital,
where he was treated and
released.


The building was fully
involved in flames when fire-
fighting units arrived. The Avon
Park municipal department
received mutual aid from the
Highlands Lakes Volunteer Fire
Department.
Although firefighters were
able to quell the blaze within
minutes, the units remained on
scene for two more hours to
make certain the fire did not
rekindle.
The poolside cabana had
housed a sauna, bathroom and a


small storage area for pool sup-
plies.
It is believed the fire might
have been the result of an elec-
trical problem in the sauna.
There were no injuries in the
incident. The preliminary dam-
age estimate has been set at
$50,000 to the building and
$15,000 to the sauna.
Las Palmas, a gated adult
resort community, sets on 10
acres of property and is com-
posed of 96 two-bedroom solid
all-concrete villas.


Courthouse debuts multi-media podium


SEBRING The humble
podium has gotten an upgrade
at the Highlands County
Courthouse.
County Judge Peter Estrada
reported Thursday that attor-
neys wil receive training next
week on "a "new multi-niedia
podium for use in trials at the
new courthouse building.,
Members of the local bar asso-
ciation will get credit for con-
tinuing legal education credit
for the training.
Brian Franza, who oversees
and maintains courthouse tech-


nology, will train attorneys on
the equipment at 3 p.m.
Thursday in the jury assembly
room.
The podium itself was pur-
.chased out of proceeds from
court cost and fines payments.
It is capable o'f irunning DVDs,
plugging in to laptop comput-
ers, will display camera images
or even display an overhead
projection.
Estrada said the overhead
feature could be useful for
cases that involve X-ray photo-
graphs of a victim.

prizes awarded via raffles and
trivia contests.
"There are some things that
just don't fit in the eggs," Hirsh
said. "Plus there are a lot of
people who like to make a
morning of it."
In addition, members of Boy
Scout Troop 818 will be on the
grassy area next to Gecko's
serving up a pancake breakfast.
"This is a first for us," said
troop fund-raising chairwoman
Beverly Singley. "We've done
chicken barbecues in the past
but we decided to try our hand
at pancakes."
Those who want to purchase
a pancake breakfast also will
get sausages and juice for $3.
The money will be used to help
underwrite the troop's trip to
North Georgia where they will
go for a summer camp at Camp
Sidney Dew.
Photos by Mike, one of the
newest downtown merchants,
will be available to take pic-
tures of children with the Easter
Bunny.
Hirsh said she also planned
to have an open microphone
segment so attendees could hear
the vocal talents of the Junior
Heartland Idol contestants.
Their finals were wiped out by
inclement weather earlier this
month and postponed until a
week from Thursday.

There are other benefits as
well. In addition to DeSoto's
proximity, and a shared educa-

County could benefit from the
other counties' infrastructure.
For example, the coalition's

it could have access to

26th Annual Springtime on the
Mall Festival.
"The parade will be led by
Miss Avon Park Jenna Jackson
with both a boy and a girl Easter
Bunny," said8Scott King, who is
the minister of youth and edu-
cation for the church.
The assemblage of bicycles,
tricycles, wagons and other
vehicles will start from
Museum Avenue at 9 a.m. and
wind up at Donaldson Park.
"We're going to have con-
tests for both the best decorated
entry and the best Easter bon-
net," he said.
Once at the park, the young-
sters will have the opportunity
to participate in the hunt for
their share of an estimated
9,000 eggs.
Both the Easter egg hunt and
a children's carnival will get
started at 9:30 a.m. There will
be a number of different skill
games including the bean bag
toss and ring toss. There will be
a space walk and some popcorn
and cotton candy
That winds up at noon.

Easter in the vineyards
Henscratch Farms in Lake
Placid is best known for its pro-
duction of wines. Owner
Johanne Lauchman will have an
inaugural Easter egg hunt from
9-10:30 a.m. Saturday.
"We're expecting a big
crowd," Lauchman said. "The
admission is $2 per child. It's a
benefit for Manna Ministries."
There will be plenty to see
and do with an egg hunt, a pet-
ting zoo, face painting and even
an appearance by some of
Toby's Clowns.
"The Easter Bunny will be
here. He'll be arriving in a car-
riage," she said.

The Children's Services
Council, which oversees the hot
line, has established a market-
ing committee to explore new
ways to publicize the service.
They meet on a regular basis to
brainstorm ideas and are devel-
oping a plan of action.
This is why the council will
host a lunch for all 15 school
principals at the regularly
scheduled principal's meeting
to be held at the Children's
Advocacy Center later this
month, with-the Heartland Bank
picking up the tab.
"There is a vacuum of under-
standing," said Ruth Handley,
former school superintendent
and a member of the marketing
committee, because many of
the principals took office after
the original publicity for the hot

Sara Canali, of Sebring, visits with the Easter Bunny Wednesday
afternoon at Lakeshore Mall in Sebring. The Easter Bunny will be at
the mall from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Saturday.


The egg hunt will be broken
up by age groups, with each of
the different demographics
given their own set of rows.
"The kids from 5-7 will be
picking in the strawberry patch
and the other children will have
their designated rows through-
out the vineyards," she said.
The idea is to have an equal


line and are not aware of its
potential.
Sheriff Susan Benton, who as
a member attended the
Children's Services Council
meeting, suggested broadening
the marketing approach to
include other hot lines like the
Crime Stoppers Tip line; by
cooperating instead of compet-
ing, both could benefit more
people and each other.
"We need to encourage kids
to call in. Not just the ones who
are suffering," she said, "but the
ones in the know as well." She
pointed out that prevention and
intervention are a key to future
success.
In addition, Benton rose to
the committee's challenge and
will make a series of motiva-
tional speeches, including a
pitch for the hot line, at the
three high schools .

the Easter Bunny and will be
standing beside her parked boat
on Lake Josephine Drive near
the spillway.
"They can drive by and wave
to the bunny with their kids,"
she said.
At 3:15 p.m. Keany and her
husband, Donald, will put their
pontoon boat in the water and
begin the tour at the juncture of
Josephine Creek and Lake
Josephine.
The Keany's have decorated
their craft and have urged others
to do the same. However, it is
not a requirement.
She said it was all for fun.
"All my life I have been
super silly now I'm a super silly
senior," she said.
But it's not all silliness. As
part of her display, Keany car-
ries a sign that says "Jesus is the
reason for the season."
"We made it at 3 p.m. so that
everybody could attend their
morning church services and
then come out in the afternoon
and do this silly thing," she
said.
Because she has been doing
it for several years, the proces-
sional is becoming a tradition
and many people put lawn
chairs out by the side of the
lake, waiting for the Easter
Bunny to come by.
Keany may be contacted at
her home at at 655-1267.

Highway Park Bash
Highway Park Community
Leaders will have its fifth annu-

been shut down for these festiv-
ities taking place from 4-8 p.m.


Rescue dogs were brought in
from Miami but rainy condi-
tions at the time made the
search difficult.
Although he was not med-
ically diagnosed as suffering
from Alzheimer's disease,
Andrews was described as very
forgetful, even to the point of
being unable to identify family
members.
Andrews had been at the
Wal-Mart store with his grand-
son, Roy Davies. Davies and
his girlfriend had gone to the
store to exchange a stereo and
had taken the then 69-year-old
Andrews along.

Building houses that

make the grade
College students are working for
Highlands County Habitat for Humanity
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING
Rain couldn't stop 27 college students from framing a
Habitat for Humanity home Wednesday.
During spring break, the group came from Spring Hill
College in Mobile, Ala., and South Connecticut State University
in New Haven, Conn., to work in Highlands County.
Crystal Hite, a junior at Spring Hill, was on her first build. She
said she wanted to do something that would give her a sense of
accomplishment. Last year she watched
spring break fly by.
"I'd heard a lot about (Habitat for
Humanity), and I wanted to find some-
My. thing to do this spring break that would
end with something to show for it," Hite
said. "It's rewarding to meet the home
o owners and see the various stages of
construction, to watch a home' be built."
Laura Bowles, of South Connecticut,
agreed.
"I really like to meet the home own-
ers," she said. "It makes the experience
Spring Hill College really, really special especially when
student Crystal Hite you meet the kids who are going to
says that framing is move in."
the most rewarding Bowles has worked on many builds
part of building a over the years. "I love to frame," she
house. said.
Ann Agnew, of Spring Hill, has been
on three builds. "I like the feeling of accomplishment," she said.
"I like doing what we're doing today framing, putting the
hammer on the nail."
Colleen Bartholomew, another three-build veteran from Spring
Hill, said she had done some of everything. Wednesday found her
covered in dirt. "I like shoveling the best, as you can see, I like to
get dirty," she said.
The students arrived Saturday night. During the week they will
have worked at six of the 10 Habitat for Humanities sites now
under construction. In addition, six of the female students will
join the woman's build for a day.
The young people and their chaperons have framed a house
and its foundation, built two sheds, and put down tile and sod.
'They're very organized here," said Maureen Bergan, director
of .iiput- mini ti ic. at Spring Hill, a Catholic Jesuit school. "We
ha\ e not stood around with nothing to do."

Progress
Special to the News-Sun
ST. PETERSBURG -
Progress Energy Florida has
recently completed its three-
year Commitment to
Excellence plan, achieving the
major reliability and opera-
tional improvement objectives
as promised in February 2002
including:
Improved employee satis-
faction and OSHA injury rate;
Improved reliability by
more than 20 percent;
Improved JD Power resi-
dential customer satisfaction
ranking;
Increased electricity
reserve from 15 percent to 20
percent;
Reduced base rates 8 per-
cent.
Progress Energy was created
from the merger of Carolina
Power & Light and Florida
Power in November 2000. After
evaluating the former Florida
Power's strengths and opportu-
nities, Progress Energy Florida
Chief Executive Officer Bill
Habermeyer outlined an aggres-
sive three-year plan to measura-
bly improve customer satisfac-
tion, operational performance
and reliability, reduce prices,
and raise employee satisfaction
and safety performance the
Commitment to Excellence
plan.
At the time, Habermeyer
said, "Customer service is a pri-
ority on which we will focus
our efforts. We understand that
we are not where we need to be,
but our goal now is to increase
customer satisfaction to a much
higher level."
Throughout the three-year
effort, Progress Energy Florida
issued annual "report cards" to
customers in bills, community
meetings and other venues so
that customers were kept up to
date on the company's progress.


The star
Special to the News-Sun
Pioneers do not come from
only one country as is illustrat-
ed by today's story about an
immigrant from Hungary
named Bernard Fantus.
He was -born in 1874, did
well in school and wanted to go
into medicine. At 17, his family
moved to the United States
where his father, a printer,
bartered print work for admis-
sion to the University of Illinois
School of Medicine for his son.
Fantus worked in pharmacies
to help with expenses and
received his medical degree in
1899. By 1901, he was teaching
at his old school, specializing in
therapeutics and research
appropriate uses of drugs and
medications.
In later years he was nation-
ally famous and was considered
one of the nation's leading
experts in therapeutics and
pharmaceuticals, serving on
federal standardizing boards,
writing and editing 30 books
and publishing in medical jour-
nals.
One of his biggest frustra-
tions was seeing critically
injured patients die because
they needed blood but there was
no one to give it to them. He
had read about experiments in
Russia using cadaver blood, but
wasn't allowed to do this in the
United States. He and some col-
leagues set up a blood laborato-
ry to find ways of keeping
blood fresh and available for
needy patients.
He turned to experimenting
with dogs in 1935 and perfected
a system of preserving blood
for 10 days or longer with
refrigeration at 4 degrees centi-
grade when mixed with a solu-
tion of sodium citrate. He knew
it worked but couldn't get the
financial backing to support this
storing system at Chicago's
Cook County Hospital where he
worked.
Then in 1936, he saved a
woman's life and her husband


was so grateful he asked if there
was anything he could do for
the physician. The man was
shocked when Fantus said yes;
give me $500 to open a "blood
preservation laboratory."
Unable to raise that amount
in the depth of the depression,
the man went to 10 wealthy
men and got each to pledge $50
to implement the plan. Fantus
renamed his "laboratory" a
"blood bank" thinking the word
bank would more clearly con-
vey its function to the public
because it required blood
deposits before doctors could
make withdrawals for patient
use.
Once it opened, transfusions
skyrocketed. Before opening


Energy completes Commitment to Excellence plan


"We're proud to report that
we accomplished what we
promised and more,"
Habermeyer said.

Employee satisfaction and
safety
"Following the merger, we
knew there was a need to focus
on improving employee satis-
faction," Habermeyer said.,
"There is a direct correlation
between employee satisfaction
and better performance, which
then translates into more satis-
fied customers."
CTE called for efforts to
enhance job satisfaction by
increasing training, providing
new tools to employees, and
placing a greater emphasis on
workplace safety. As a result,
employee satisfaction as
measured by the company's
annual employee opinion sur-
vey has improved.
Safety was, and continues to
be, the company's top priority.
"Our injury rate was unac-
ceptable," said Habermeyer.
'How can you be a focused, sat-
isfied employee if you don't
think your management is com-
mitted to your safety?
Maintaining a safe workplace in
an industry where risks are
ever-present is not easy. But it's
something we are committed to
continually improve."
In 2001, Progress Energy
Florida's OSHA injury rate
ranked in the third quartile ver-
sus other Edison Electric
Institute utilities nationally.
Between 2001 and 2004, the
company's injury rate improved
more than 50 percent.

Reliability
At the time of the merger, on
average the company's Florida
customers were without power
for more than 100 minutes
I .


annually. Progress Energy had
promised to decrease that num-
ber to no more than 80 minutes
by year-end 2004, and guaran-
teed its pledge through a $3
million commitment to the cus-
tomer if the company failed to
meet the outage reduction goal.
Progress Energy today filed
with the Florida Public Service
Commission, reporting the
company had reduced the aver-
age to 77 minutes in 2004, beat-
ing its goal by three minutes.
"Reaching our reliability
goal is a credit to the hard work
of all of our employees,"
Habermeyer said. "It's also
proof that if you invest strategi-
cally, and ensure your people
are in the right place with the
right tools, great things can hap-
pen."
Progress Energy invested
more than $100 million in new
facilities, replaced older equip-
ment, .established a new tree
pruning program, and invested
in new trucks, technology and
tools for linemen working in the
field. To shorten outages and
quicken response times, the
company moved crews closer to
customers through the addition
of new operation centers in
Longwood, Odena, Winter
Garden and Tarpon Springs,
and renovated other operation
centers throughout its 35-coun-
ty service territory. Additional
renovations are planned.

Customer service
In 1999, Florida Power's res-
idential customer satisfaction
was ranked 49 out of 70 utilities
nationally, and 16 out of 21 in
the south region of the U.S. In
JD Power's most recent study,
(the former Florida Power)
Progress Energy Florida ranks
18 out of 77 utilities nationally
and five out of 15 in the south
region making it a top-quartile


performer.
The company added 175 new
pay locations and 1,000 tele-
phone lines to its system to han-
dle emergencies such as those
experienced during the 2004
hurricane season. In 2004,
Progress Energy also opened a
new state-of-the-art customer
service center in Pinellas
County, which, along with the
company's Lake Mary center,
provides customers outstanding
service with local employees.
"The new center was critical
in our storm response during
2004," Habermeyer added.
"And it underscored our focus
by providing our customers
with more personal service
from employees who live right
here."
The company also placed an
emphasis on providing more
accurate estimates for cus-
tomers of when power outages
will be restored. Additionally,
customers now have new bill
payment and energy efficiency
options.

Generation
The CTE plan called for
increasing Progress Energy's
reserve of available electricity
from 15 percent to 20 percent,
which is vital in a high-growth
state such as Florida. This was
accomplished in 2003, when
Unit 2 at Progress Energy's
Hines Energy Complex in Polk
County began operating. The
company continues to maintain
its 20 percent reserve margin
and expects Hines Unit 3 to
begin operating in late 2005 and
Unit 4 in 2007. Progress Energy
also completed an upgrade to
the Crystal River Nuclear Plant,
and by 2007 the company will
have increased its total generat-
ing capability by approximately
19 percent.

Rates
Customer electricity bills are
divided into two primary por-
tions fuel costs and "base
rates." As evidenced by prices
at the gas pump, United States
fuel costs remain volatile. This
has impacted electric utility
prices, but by using a diverse
portfolio of fuels to generate
electricity, Progress Energy has
been able to manage rising fuel
prices as well as any utility in
the country.
The company has not
increased base rates since 1993.
As part of CTE it reduced base.
rates in 2002 by more than 8
percent, and added a new rev-
enue sharing feature for cus-
tomers. Because of the reduc-
tion, base rates are currently at
the same level as they were in
1983, and the company contin-
ues to provide millions annually
in revenue sharing to cus-
tomers.

What's next
"While we may be wrapping
up Commitment to Excellence,
there's more to come."


Habermeyer said. "Our efforts
over the past three years have
fostered a culture of excellence
that will continue in all of our
work and improvement plans
for the future. We certainly have
' more work ahead of us. We
need to improve our safety even
more, and will continue to
enhance customer service and
reliability. We won't rest until
our customers and employees
are satisfied with our perform-
ance."

Step-By-Step Dance Studio dancers receive


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Dani Brann-
Heier and Madison. Jackson,
both competition dance team
members of Step-By-Step
Dance Studio under the direc-
tion of Amy Sims, received
Scholarship awards at The
Urban Jamm Dance Convention
they attended in late January.
Urban Jamm is based out of
California, but travels the
United States bringing well-
known teachers/choreographers
from the Los Angeles and New
York area to teach dance stu-


dents the latest dance moves
and traditional technique. It is a
team requirement made by
Sims to attend at least one con-
vention a year and to audition
for a scholarship at these con-
ventions. In order to be chosen
for a scholarship, the girls must
perform a routine they were
taught at the convention in front
of the judges and the judges
choose a few girls out of
approximately 250 students,
who will receive the scholar-
ship. They are judged on tech-
nique, showmanship and execu-


"Words cannot express how
proud I am of these girls and all
the team members, for their
courage and drive to be the best
they can be," Sims said.
The scholarship will allow
these girls to attend the Urban
Jamm convention next year free
of charge.
"I think it is important to take
my students to these conven-
tions, because it gives them the
opportunity to learn from 'star'
choreographers, learn different
styles of dance, meet other


scholarships
dancers from all over and gives
them the chance to be inspired
or to inspire other dancers,
whether here at home or in
other places," Sims added.
All of the dance teams of
Step-By-Step Dance Studio will
begin their competition season
mid-March, traveling Central
Florida, to compete for titles,
taking group routines, as well
as solos and duets. The main
objective the dancers are taught
is to do their best but most of all
have fun and enjoy the experi-
ence of competition.


Scholarship winner, Madison Jackson, poses with Johnie Smith,
owner/director of Urban Jamm Dance Conventions and Courtesy photos
Choreographer to the Pop Stars. Dance Studio in California. Scholarship winner, Dani Brann-Heier, stands with Johnie Smith.

County loses old pine

in front of courthouse


News-Sun
SEBRING It's over three
stories tall and nine and a half
feet around, and it's coming
down.
Highlands County has lost
the old pine tree in front of the
courthouse in Sebring. Pine
beetles have gotten into the tree
and killed it, County
Administrator Carl Cool said
Tuesday.
Cool recalls old photographs
of the courthouse showing the
tree fully grown, which leaves
him to believe the tree has
stood there since before the
courthouse was built. Some of
the thicker limbs are between
one and two feet in diameter, he
said.
David Flowers, Highlands
County facilities manager, has
put out bids with tree surgeons
and hopes to have the tree
felled by' the end of the week.
The good news, Cool said, is


'Maybe
we
could
carve a
'gator or some-
thing.'
ANDREW JACKSON,
county commissioner
that the county has planted sev-
eral other trees on the lawn that
will help serve as shade for
county events when the pine
tree is gone.
Commission Chairman
Andrew Jackson thinks the.
county should consider having
something built or carved out of
the heart core of the old tree.
"Maybe we could carve a
'gator or something," he said.

SFWMD to

spend $750

million on

water

- quality

north of

Okeechobee
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County may get some help
with flood structures around
Lake Istokpoga from the South
Florida Water Management
District.
County Commissioner
Edgar Stokes reported Tuesday
that the water district plans to
spend $750 million on water
quality projects to the north of
Lake Okeechobee, and about
$1.5 billion on such projects to
the south of the lake.
He doesn't know what time
frame that will cover, but he
hopes that will include
improvements to the flood con-
trol at and south of Lake
Istokpoga. When the flood
control system filled up with
water during the 2004 hurri-
cane season, it left Lake
Istokpoga full of water when
Hurricane Jeanne arrived.
The winds
whipped up the
water and sent
it over it's
banks into the
side of County
Road 621.
STOKES Water washed
over the top of
the road and nearly washed the
road out as it ran down the
other side.
Stokes said restrictions
imposed to prevent erosion on
a cypress head further south in
the system meant that a struc-
ture on the Lake Istokpoga
Canal could not release more
than 800,000 gallons a minute.
Other structures are either
under repair or being replaced,
so the flood control system is
not working as well as it
should.
Stokes said that SFWMD
may look at other options with
C.R. 621, including installing
culverts to let water levels
down.

Let military do

combat training
Editor:
If the Defense Department
feels that the Avon Park
Bombing Range is needed to
ensure our training for our mili-
tary forces, then let them do
their job. I'm not a native
Floridian, but even before I
came here I knew there was a
bombing range in the area. I
could be a little bias, since I'm
a retired Marine, but I also
know that the military needs
training, it takes training to be
the best.
The Department of Defense
has come along way in the area
of protecting the environment
and I feel confident with the
environmental staff at the
bombing range. Don't get me
wrong, I think it is very impor-
tant that a strong monitoring
system be put in place to moni-
tor the affects of the environ-
ment in the area. But, let's give
our pilots and bomb riggers
their training so America can be
safe. Dropping sand bags does-
n't help train the military in
arming bombs. Give them our
support.

Politicians need

to stay out of

Schiavo affairs
Editor:
The Republican controlled
Congress has trumped state's
rights and family issues in vot-
ing to overturn Florida courts in
the Terri Schiavo case. The
GOP is trampling on the
Constitution and Congress has
descended into playing judge,
jury, doctor and God in this
conflict. Hypocrisy and diver-
sion sum up the latest GOP
invasion into family matters.
The irony of this incident is
that Bush, who executed more
men and women than any other
governor, rushed back to
Washington from his Crawford
ranch to save this woman.
There is more than meets the
eye here. The Terri Schiavo
tragedy is being used by
Republicans to forward their
anti-abortion agenda. Shame on
them.

Peace comes

within heart
Editor:
I think of how the govern-
ments, not only our country but
many others as well, continue
to talk about peace and freedom
almost makes me scratch my.
head and wonder where all the
sanity has gone to.
Jesus says "He has come not
to give peace, but rather divi-
sion" (Luke 12:51).
There is only one peace to be
found on this earth and that is in
man's heart. And that peace
passes all understanding. When
one comes to realize his lost
condition because of his sins
against the Lord God Almighty,
he must understand he must be


reconciled to bring about this
peace.
Christ went to the cross and
gave his life for the sins of
mankind throughout the entire
universe.
Easter is a symbol of a day of
rejoicing for those who love
and serve God never to be for-
gotten!
Friend, if you don't know the
Savior, then you have no
Easter!
God loves you so much,
don't let another Easter pass, it
could be your last here on this
earth, young or old.

Brain-dead

woman testifies
Editor:
In my many years of living, I
have seen some odd things. But
today, I believe I'm seeing
something that tops them all.
A brain-dead women is sub-
poenaed to appear and testify
before and to brain-dead con-
gressional (republican-con-
trolled) committee.
Makes no sense to me.
How about you?

People say 'no
thanks' to Bush
Editor:
Over the past couple of
weeks our great leader has been
pottering around the country on
his "Abandoning Social
Security Helps America" Tour,
and unfortunately his little jaunt
is already suffering from poor
attendance and cancellations.
The majority of Republicans in
-Alabama's congressional dele-
gation said "thanks but no
thanks" to an invitation to join
the president during his stop in
Montgomery, and Bush was
forced to cancel his trip to
Sarasota after even Rep.
Katherine Harris, (she a mem-
ber of the "perpetual Bush
brown nose class") decided that
having Bush stop by would be
more trouble than it was worth.
Meanwhile Republicans
were busy making excuses for
Bush, saying that he'd received
"bad advice" on the Social
Security issue, therefore putting
the blame squarely on the
shoulders of, um, someone else,
I guess.

Husband has

rights to make

decision
Editor:
By now just about everyone
in America is well aware of the
life story of Terri Schiavo. As
she lay for the past 15 years
brain damaged and in a vegeta-
tive state, her family and Terri's
legally wedded husband have
fought a continued legal battle
as to whether she should contin-
ue to be kept alive by the use of
a feeding tube inserted directly
into her stomach, or as her hus-
band insists the tube be


removed and his wife be
allowed to die.
Unfortunately the media
seems to have inflamed the bat-
tle by repeatedly showing a clip
of Terri sitting in a chair with
her eyes and mouth open and
her mother poking lovingly at
her daughter's hair. The clip is
four or five years old and cer-
tainly does not reflect the cur-
rent condition of this unfortu-
nate lady.
The media appears to have
further inflamed the public by
frequently stressing profoundly
"the doctors say if the tube is
not re-inserted Terri will die
within two weeks".
Apparently God Almighty
has no say in the matter
(according to them). I argue that
point by bringing to your atten-
tion Isaiah Chapter 59, verse 1:
"Behold, the Lord's hand is not
shortened that it cannot save,
neither is his ear heavy that it
cannot hear."
I wonder if we, as outsiders,
are in a position to say what is
best for Terri Schiavo?
When we consider the mar-
riage- vows as written in the
King James version of the Holy
Bible, it clearly states "And the
.two of them shall become as
one."
It seems indisputably accu-
rate that Terri's husband has the
"soul right" to speak in one
voice on his wife's behalf.
And now this corrupt gov-
ernment in Washington with
George W. Bush leading the
pack has injected themselves
into this personal and painful
family issue that is none of their
business, making it a political
agenda that benefits only them-
selves.
George W. Bush would love
to convince America and the
world that he is a "conservative
Christian" with high moral
standards who wants only to
protect Terri Schiavo's life.
If this case were not so sad, I
would say George is a joke.
His lies has led us into a
bloody quagmire in Iraq that
has cost the lives of 1,532
Americans and wounded more
than 11,000 of our people
besides killing and wounding
hundreds of thousands Iraqi
people and he would like us to
believe he has concerns for
Terri Schiavo's life! George W.
Bush is working on his image
for the history books.
Senator Tom Dulay finds the
suffering of Terri Schiavo a
comforting relief from the
"heat" he is taking for acquiring
large sums of money he had no
legal right to and Martha
Stewart lands in the slammer
for being a successful business
woman that told a lie! How
many men do you know who lie
so often in business they con-
vince themselves they are doing
America a favor and are pro-
tecting their constituents?
Senator Frist, a doctor who
apparently lost sight of the heal-
ing profession when he set his
cap for power and the lust of the
Presidency. Politics has taken
precedent over mercy in Terri
Schiavo case.
Now let's talk about the "end
time" of patients when tubes
and life support is discontinued.

SNAPSHOTS OF TRUTH

Kenneth Hannum


Real time

Hebrews 4:7 (NKJV) -
Again, He designates a certain
day, saying in David, "Today,"
after such a long time, as it has
been said, "Today, if you will
hear His voice, Do not harden
your hearts."

There have been times when
Marie and I have been watch-
ing something on TV, I feel an
impulse to rewind to check
something I missed or per-
haps fast forward through a
commercial, or maybe hit
"pause" to take a break. Then I
am reminded that we are
watching on real time, and
can't do that.
The advent of the tape, VCR
and DVD players in our gener-
ation have wrought a change in
our view of passing events. We
are having a problem distin-
guishing between, and reacting
realistically to, what is real but
fleeting and deserves our seri-
ous and immediate attention,
and what we can manipulate to
suit our fancy.
In principle, though, this is
not new. We could go all the
way back to Israel viewing the
Promised Land. Blocked by
fear and mistrust of God,
instead of moving righi in at
the appointed time, they want-
ed to hit "pause" and think
things over. When they were
finally rebuked of God for their
disobedience, they wanted to
hit "rewind" and have another
chance. Turns out they were
operating in real time and
couldn't do it. It cost them a
whole generation to get a new
opportunity; there was no "fast
forward."
The above passage in
Hebrews harks back to God's
displeasure with those
Israelites for not obediently
resting upon His promise, and
it warns us all to be sensitive to
His "Todays," realizing we are
operating in real time. There is
no "rewind" to go back and
make things as they were; there
is no "pause" to stop the march
of time; there is no "fast for-
ward" to get us over the prob-
lematic or rough spots. What
we have is Today. Today to
hear His voice and try to dis-
cern and act upon His real time
will for us.
Jesus said if we would fol-
low Him we must take up our
crosses daily. When you think
about it, it's all we need to be
concerned about, because it's
really all we can do anything
about. Not that we should not
anticipate and plan as intelli-
gently as possible, but how
often have we had to totally
rework those plans? But today
is what's before us. He says to
us as pertinently as He did to
the Psalmist and the writer of
Hebrews, 'Today, if you will
hear (My) voice, harden not
your hearts."
It may be for salvation, it
may be for some task or serv-
ice, it may be for some person-
al spiritual matter. But if He is
saying "Today," it could be our
only shot. Think about it!

LETTERS
Continued from 22A
In my many years of nursing
service I have worked in all
units of intensive care, nursing
homes, hospitals and in hospice
care.
For the media's benefit espe-
cially, I would like for you to
know the kind of care these
patients receive, so that we may
do away with the horror of suf-
fering, starving to death and all
other "stories" of what you
imagine the end time of life
entails.
Patients are washed, kept
warm and clean. They are
turned every one to two hours,
depending on the condition of
their bodies. They are propped
in a side line position or other
position of comfort.
They receive clear eye drops
frequently if their eyes are
opened for long periods of time.
Their mouths are swabbed
frequently usually with lemon
and glycerin. Their throats are
kept free of mucus and they are
medicated with a mild sedation
if necessary, according to the
doctor's discretion.
These patients usually sleep
their way out of this world and
into the next. They do not suffer
as those hysterical crowds
standing so piously and waving
their Bibles and insulting signs
would have us believe.,
I hope this will be comfort-
ing information. You can rest
assure this is uniform nursing
care applied in hospice nursing
throughout America.


A "saline cap" is inserted in
the patient's arm or other easily
accessed site where medicine
can be injected into the patient
when necessary.
Lastly, good advice is for all
of us to write out our "end-time
care" wishes, take a copy to the
bank, have it witnessed and
notarized. It is perfectly legal
and binding. Make several
copies to distribute to "key"
people who will see that your
desires are fulfilled.

How will IOUs
be repaid for
Social Security
Editor:
The column headline indi-
cates that Democrats are con-
cerned about Social Security
and well they should be. For
years Congress has been dip-
ping into the Social Security
trust fund and replacing it with
IOUs. Social Security funds
have been loaned to the budget
and replaced with IOUs that are
worthless but counted as part of
the Social Security trust fund.
Those borrowed funds have
been spent for everything from
welfare to State Department
foreign embassies.
The current Social Security
tax revenues this year will bring
in about $575 billion of which
$515 billion will be spent on
Social Security benefits. The
remainder of about $60 billion
will be loaned to the federal
government for more trust fund


worthless lOUs and spent on
federal government budget.
When the crunch comes, and
come it will, where will the
government get the money to
repay the IOUs? It never
intends to, but the people are
led to believe in the system.
The "pay-as-you-go" system
is a disaster waiting to happen.
Under the current system, taxes
will have to be increased by
about 50 percent or benefits cut
by 40 percent. A negative ratio
of return is not acceptable.
The present system is a drag
on the economy. It reduces
gross domestic product by
about 10 percent per year. Take
a good look at the social wel-
fare state in the majority of
European countries. The GNP
is dropping annually while
unemployment rises. A large
majority of foreign population
in European countries now live
"on the dole" while unemploy-
ment continues to rise.
We have seen the fall of com-
munism in the USSR and its
close relatives of Fascism and
Nazism as attempted in Italy
and Germany. Yet many in our
own country still believe in the
socialistic idea that the govern-
ment can do it best. That idea is
a proven failure and will contin-
ue to be. Individuals and fami-
lies must recognize their own
responsibilities to themselves
and to our heritage.
Dependence on the government
for all things is a road to failure.

Free camping can be found at


Sebring International Speedway


Here's the latest installment of
"What Stupid Thing did Phil do now?"
Yes, I jumped out of a plane,
wrecked my bicycle and my car, got
sick in a B-17, went "submarine surf-
ing," watched "Dude, Where's my
car?" and they even let me ride a
motorcycle and vote. -
This time,'I went camping: I slept in
my car. REAL
Typical "Can I get a place to sleep?"
roughing it for any race fan who does- Phil A
n't want to pay $789 bucks to sleep in
Wauchula'and wait five hours at the
gate.
I live downtown, but that's way too far from
the wild party at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring
- I hear someone got drunk this year.
The night before the big race, my friends and a
cooler of beer stood around the flag pole, then
went to Green Park to hear a band that wasn't
playing. So, we started singing Queen's
"Bohemian Rhapsody."
A little more beer, and we'd have nailed it.
After that, I asked to sleep on a friend's
camper floor. No room.
"Why don't you sleep in your car?"
It's in free parking, which also is "free camp-
ing." I drove home, grabbed my sleeping bag and
a change of clothes and came back.
By 2 a.m., I'd fixed up the passenger seat for a
nap and stepped out to get clothes from the trunk.
As I shut the trunk, the car door shut.
My keys were in the ignition, turned on so my
phone also inside sitting beside my wallet -
would recharge. I had a free calling card, hanging
on the beads in the rear view.
At the Highlands County sheriff's outpost and
at the gate, no one had a door opener.

"How about a locksmith?"
Thumbs direct me to a hand-lettered
cardboard sign with two numbers
scrawled on it. A young man in a yel-
low jacket lends me his phone.
The first number is voice mail. The
second number has life, but he said call
back in 15 minutes.
I wait, then call. He patches me
through to Jason who talks with me for
a few minutes, then said, "I'll be there
in 25 minutes."
More waiting at the gate, trading
lock-out stories with guards and ticket-
takers. The Polk County deputy got


locked out of his squad car, once, and now carries
extra keys in his shirt and his belt.
Jason arrives. We drives to my car, where he
pulls out an S-shaped heavy duty "coat hanger."
"I hope this works," he said. "I only have one
of these."
I hold a faint yellow light on the window while
he jams it into the window gap. Success. I grab
the keys and wallet and we drive back to the gate
for the ATM and his cash: $60.
He said he wouldn't have come out, but I
sounded sober, desperate and intelligent. Best
two out of three.
Raceway camping is still cheaper than a motel
room. I beat the lines, got four hours of sleep and
woke up to the sun bouncing off the side-view
mirror.
With a Twinkee and a Coke, I could have had
breakfast.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
March 24, 1995: Taylor
Wells gave up only six hits
and one earned run to lift
Lake Placid to its third
straight victory with a 7-2
win at Sebring. Dustin
Certain went 3-for-4 with
two RBI for the Dragons,
who put up five runs in the
second inning.

25 Years Ago
March 25, 1980: David
Sisemore gave up a three-
run homer to Lake Placid
third baseman Jeff Howell,
and then settled down,
striking out 10 and walking
only two in a complete-
game 5-3 victory for Avon
Park. The Red Devils need-
ed only five hits for their
five runs.

A double doubleheader at SFCC


Litsch has huge

day to lead sweep

by baseball team
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Jesse Litsch had
enough production in the first game of
Tuesday's doubleheader for the whole
afternoon, and then some.
The South Florida Community College
sophomore hit for the cycle and threw a
two-hitter on the mound in a 12-2 win
against Madison (Wis.) Area Tech, then
reached base all three times at bat in the
second game, a 4-1 SFCC win.
"It was a pretty good day for me, I
guess," said Litsch, who hit for his first
cycle on any level. "I'd never done it
before, and I really wanted to, and it felt
good."
The University of Alabama signee
tripled in the first, homered in the second,
doubled in the fourth and singled in the
fifth against the nation's 12th-ranked team
in NJCAA Division II.
"I'm sure it's been done (at SFCC)
before, but it's awful nice to see it done
right here," SFCC head coach Rick Hitt
said.
Litsch's 4-for-4 first game was just part
of a 17-hit attack, also highlighted by
multi-hit games from Brad Crone, Josh
Welkes, Jeff De La Concha and DeWayne
Bailey.
"We haven't done that in a while,"
Litsch said of the offensive outburst.
"That was big; we needed that."
Yet with Litsch (4-5) on the mound, the
Panthers (25-15-1) could have gotten by
with much less.
"I threw the ball well today," he said. "I
struggled throwing first-pitch strikes, but
everyone has their days like that."
Dusty McGee (3-2) also worked
through some difficulty as he scattered
seven hits and gave up an unearned run in
the third, but walked only one in 6'/
innings for the win.
"Dusty McGee battled like crazy for us
after giving up the early run, and (David
Kellerberg) closed the door there at the
end," Hitt said. "We've pitched really well

as of late."
Hitt looked back e\ en to last weekend's
losses at Miami-Dade as the genesis of a
streak of strong, pitching performances
that reaped a 5-3 win at state 1N6. 8
Seminole Wednesday and the sweep
Thursday. The key, Hitt said, is for the
bats to follow suit.
"If we can get our hitters to really fig-


ure it out here down the stretch, all the
time, who knows?" he said.
The Panther offense broke through in
the fifth-against Madison starter Danny
Plens (1-1) in the second game. Down 1-
0, SFCC loaded the bases, and tied the
game when Litsch grounded to the short-

Morrow records 23 strikeouts

as softball Panthers split pair


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
McHenry College catcher Michelle Powers tags out Kayley Duke of
SFCC for the final out of Thursday's first game.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK When
you have a pitcher having the
kind of day that Christina
Morrow was having for South
Florida Community College
on Thursday, you need to take
full advantage of it.
The Lady Panthers didn't,
however, splitting a double-
header with McHenry
College out of Illinois despite
the fact that Morrow stuck
out 23 batters, scattered five
hits, walked only one and
allowed no earned runs in
pitching back-to-back com-
plete games.
McHenry, which was play-
ing just its third and fourth
games of the season before
going back to Illinois to wait
two weeks until the start of
their regular schedule, got
good outings from both of its
pitchers holding the
Panthers to seven hits over
the two games.
But Falla said it was more
his team's approach at the


plate that held the offense in
check than anything the two
pitchers did in the Panthers'
2-0 loss in the first game and
1-0 win in the second.
In the first game, Morrow
had 14 strikeouts and was
perfect through four innings
before two hits and two errors
led to two unearned runs in
the fifth.
McHenry's Megan Osness
only struck out one, but kept
SFCC (9-15) from threaten-
ing until the last inning.
The Panthers loaded the
bases with no outs on singles
by Kayley Duke and Dana
Buccelli and a walk, but
failed to score as Duke was
thrown out at the plate trying
to score on Courtney
Wallace's fly ball to center for
the final out.
Falla was visibly frustrated
at his offense's failure to give
Morrow some support.
"She had, what, 14 strike-
outs and we lose? On two

Field of 50 set to tackle 24 Hours of Le Mans in June


Special.to the News-Sun
LE MANS, France The final
choice of the field for the 73rd Le
Mans 24 Hours has been made. The
overall quality of the 50 entries
selected for the race June 18-19 will
ensure a fierce battle for outright vic-
tory, and the struggle for first place in
each category will be no less intense.
The 73rd Le Mans 24 Hours looks
like it will be a very open race to
which extra spice will be added by
the presence of some newcomers.
The 50 cars selected are divided up
as follows: 28 cars in the Le Mans
Prototype Category split evenly with
14 in LMP1 and 14 in LMP2, plus 22
in the Le Mans Grand Touring
Category with 10 cars in LM GTI
and 12 in LM GT2.


In addition to the Champion Audis
- which finished one-two in the 12
Hours of Sebring on Saturday and
the French "Blue" Audi running
under the Team Oreca colors, the new
Dome-Mugen entered by the Jim
Gainer International team will be
making its Sarthe debut. It will not be
the only Japanese re esentative as
one of the two Rol Untre Racing
Dallaras is powered y a Nissan

Senior Softball

L.P. Marine upsets Central Security


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Lake Placid Marine (9-9),
the hottest team in the Lake Placid Senior
Softball Association, upset Central Security 22-
18 on Monday forcing the Securitymen into a do-
or-die situation this coming Monday against
Seminole Tire (13-5). A win will clinch the 2005
championship for the Tiremen.
Emery Graves and Gene Cole paced the
Mariners with four hits each. Manager Stu Giem
pitched the complete-game victory and chipped
in with three hits of his own. Jim Lauzon and Jim
Radcliffe each hit roundtrippers for Central
Security (12-6).
Eighty-seven-year-old league patriarch Dale
Noe had a field day for Advanced Mobilehome
Systems (8-11) against Yates Insurance (4-15),
banging out four hits to lead AMS to a 22-12 vic-
tory. Buck Gadd homered for AMS.


In Wednesday action, Seminole Tire set up
their big matchup with Central by defeating
AMS, 23-15. The 'Noles rallied from early 8-1
and 13-6 deficits for the win. Dick Harmick
notched his 14th pitching win of the season and
aided his own cause with three hits.
Billy Thompson had four hits, while six other
'Nole hitters had three hits each including Jim
Morgan (two doubles), Glenn Minnick (double
and triple), Howard Carney (double and triple)
and Lucky Lespier (triple). John Miller had four
hits and Ed Engler three hits to pace AMS.
Also on Wednesday, Lake Placid Marine
defeated Yates Insurance, 18-8. Recent Filipino
returnee Roger Erlich had four hits for the
Mariners. Doug Hammond also banged out four
hits, including two triples, for the Mariners, while
Bob Fox added three hits for the victors.

LE MANS
Continued from 1B
and his name is well represent-
ed in LMP2 with no fewer than
seven C65 prototypes (a total of
nine cars in all for the French
constructor). It will be interest-
ing to compare the performanc-
es of the different engines and
tires, which vary from one
Courage to another.
In addition to the C65, win-
ner of its class in the Le Mans
Endurance Series in 2004 and
more recently in the 12 Hours
of Sebring, the presence of the
new Lolas and the Luchini as
well as evolutions from WR
and Pilbeam has led to an
increase in both quality and


quantity in the LMP2 Category.
In GTI, the major attraction
of the 2005 Le Mans 24 Hours
is the return of Aston Martin
(outright winner in 1959. and
absent since 1989). The British
manufacturer's season got off
to an excellent start with a cate-
gory victory in the Sebring 12
Hours on Corvette's home terri-
tory. The American make is the
current Le Mans GT1 titlehold-
er and will be out for revenge in
the Sarthe with its new C6-R.
In addition to the above-
mentioned makes other presti-
gious entries include no fewer
than five Ferraris four 550
Maranellos and one 575 GTC
- entered by teams that are
accustomed to the topmost step
of the podium. A Saleen S7R,


another American GT, com-
pletes the GTI field.
Finally, the LM GT2
Category is more varied than in
the past with a couple of Ferrari
360 Modenas, a TVR and the
comeback of the Dutch GT, the
Spyker C8 in Spyder form, plus
the arrival of the new Panoz
Esperante. They will be up
against a formidable armada of
Porsches, which is currently the
make to beat in this category.
In addition to the 50 entries,
the Selection Committee has
also drawn up a reserve list of
eight cars. It will remain valid
for withdrawals announced up
to May 27, which will then be
replaced by the reserves in their
numerical order whatever the
category.

errors? It's unforgivable," Falla
said. "Just lack of focus, lack of
whatever, I don't know. I don't
know what they're doing."
One thing Falla did know
was that his hitters kept trying
to pull the ball when Osness
was working the outside half of
the plate with her pitches,
which weren't nearly the veloc-
ity that the Panthers see just
about every other game.
"The girl's throwing slow
and they're trying to hit home
runs and nobody on this team's
a home run hitter," Falla said.
"We've got a right fielder play-
ing two steps off the (infield)
and we never hit the ball to
right field. Unless we learn that
and they realize it in their
brains, we're going to continue
to struggle with the bat."
The offense didn't get much
better in the second game,
although Wallace singled in the
first and scored on a single up
the middle from Ashley
Congdon to stake Morrow to a
1-0 lead that she held the rest of
the game as she struck out nine
and didn't walk a batter until
the final inning hef 14th of
the day.
Morrow, a freshman right-
hander who has had to shoulder
the majority of the pitching
duties after the Panthers' other
pitchers were all lost for the
season for various reasons,
struck out all 10 of the
McHenry players at least once
in the two games.
It was the kind of perform-
ance her coach has come to
expect this season, the first for
the softball program at SFCC.
"Every day with her it's the
same," Falla said. "I know what
I'm getting every day with her.
She's outstanding in the circle.
No complaints. How can you
complain when somebody's
averaging eight, nine strikeouts
per game?"
Falla said Morrow is ranked
,eighth in the state in just about
every statistical category.

Sexual predators
lurking in
Highlands
The national sex offender
registry has more than half a
million on the list, nearly
100 of these registered sex
offenders reside in Highlands
County. Six of whom are
women living in the commu-
nities of Avon Park, Sebring,
Lake Placid and Lorida.
They have been found guilty
of offenses from lewd, las-
civious acts, sexual battery,
to molestation on a minor.
Among them are some
considered as "predators" by
the Florida Departrhent of
Law Enforcement one of
whom is a female. A number
of the perpetrators are listed
as under community control
or supervised. In addition,
they are those who are listed
as having absconded proba-
tion.
Florida's laws states that
"a sexual predator must
maintain registration with the
department for the duration
of his or her life, unless the
sexual predator has received
a full pardon or has had a
conviction set aside in a post
conviction proceeding for
any offense that met the sex-
ual predator designation."
The law also prohibits sex-
ual offenders from establish-
ing residence in another state
or jurisdiction before report-
ing to the authorities. A sexu-
al offender who fails to noti-
fy authorities of his/her
intention to change address
will be imprisoned.
FDLE states that once the
sheriff or police department
is notified of a sexual offend-
.er intent to live withn'a
community, 48 hoctis after
they receive the notification,
"the sheriff of the
county chief of police of the
municipality where the sexu-
al predator temporarily or
permanently resides shall
notify each licensed day care
center, elementary school,
middle school and high
school within a 1-mile radius
of the temporary or perma-
nent residence of the sexual
predator."
Legislative findings:
"Repeat sexual offenders,
sexual offenders who use
physical violence, and sexual
offenders who prey on chil-
dren are sexual predators
who present an extreme
threat to the public safety.
Sexual offenders are
extremely likely to use vio-
lence and to repeat their
offenses and most sexual
offenders commit many
offenses, have many more
victims than are ever report-
ed, and are prosecuted for
only a fraction of their
crimes. This makes the cost
of sexual offender victimiza-
tion to society at lafge while
incalculable, Clearly exorbi-
tant."
In the wake of the recent
abduction and subsequent
murder of 9-year-old Jessica
Lunsford by a registered sex
offender John Couey, many
are trying to come up with
ways in which the where-
abouts of these offenders can
be more controlled/moni-
tored. Some are suggesting
that laws be past where
offenders would be forced to
wear ankle bracelets
Following the reported
confession of John Couey
and the discovery of little
Jessica's body, Jessica's
father, Mark Lunsford
through tears said, "She is
home now ... and it's over ...
I need support to change
things."

outraged about these sexual

Old-fashioned circus coming to Highlands Little Theatre


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING
T night the circus comes to town.
"Barnum: The Musical" is kicking off its
three-week run at Highlands Little
Theatre.
Through music and comedy, the show follows
,' etrh, htfew.f Plfinftfa alrB arnune-- '
S-l-del ri ed nLst- or! ~hrt o humbu"
S Z no anamt, \ 4ther.Bailey to- pr.uce "The
Greatest Show on Earth."
In 1981, with Michael Crawford in the lead,
the Michael Stewart-Cy Coleman production
worked its magic on Broadway. Director Kathy
MacNeill was urged to do the show by her hus-
band, Darin, who performed it in high school.
"I got a copy of it," MacNeill said. "I enjoyed
it, but the music sold me on it It's wonderful and
uplifting."
Although five of the six leading roles went to
adults, the supporting cast is filled with children and
teenagers, who learned to be tumblers, jugglers and
aerialists. One girl taught herself how to juggle for the
show, MacNeill said, while two more learned to twirl
batons.
Morgan Anderson, who had been to circus camp,
came onboard as an aerialist and trained other per-
formers, including MacNeill's daughter, Nicole Brand.
And despite setbacks among the cast, preparations
for the show marched on.
"There have been three or four surgeries, one death
in the family, little things that happened," MacNeill
said. "No matter what happened, this has been the
most family-like cast I have ever worked with. I
would work with this crew again anytime."
The Barnums
The principals P.T. Barnum and his wife, Charity
are being played by Chris Hayes and Deanna
Pollard.
Hayes has a musical background, but "Barnum" is
Pollard's first singing role. MacNeill said she chose
them when they auditioned together, singing a key
duet from show how, "The Colors of My Life."
"We really work well together," Pollard said of her
rapport with Hayes. "We have a lot of fun together.
.We joke. We tease. Basically, I decided I'm going to
treat him like my husband. I think I get on his nerves
once in awhile."
Both. actors agreed that the Barnums had an inter-
esting relationship being polar opposites who
remained devoted despite their differences of opinion
on every aspect of life.
"It's definitely multi-faceted," Hayes said. "The
interaction between Barnum and his wife is the part
the audience will really enjoy. Barnum lives in a
dreamland, and Charity brings him back to reality."
Pollard said the couple had a modem marriage to
some extent. Charity is known to speak her mind and

yet she supports her husband's goals.
"She lets him do anything he wants, but not without
hearing her opinion first," Pollard said. "You have to
let people follow their dreams, but yet as a partner in


that marriage you have the right to say whatever
S L.i you want to have."
i "aheir duet "I Like Your Style" has become
h4 of Pollard's favorite numbers. It expresses
the nature of their relationship that their love -
for each other balances their differences.
Supporting cast
The other famous women in Barnum's life -
Joice Heth and Jenny Lind are brought to life
by Toni Ford and Jill Lockhart, respectively.
Ford, who also appears as a blues singer and
member of the chorus, said she is finally using her
natural singing voice. A contralto, she frequently gets
high soprano parts.
"I've been singing in the upper stratosphere forever,
and now I can sing in my own range," Ford said. "It's
wonderful."
Lockhart said Lind's role presented her with a dou-
ble challenge. It's her first singing part and in her big
number "Love Makes Fools of Us All" part of the
lyrics are in Swedish.
Cameron Reck, who plays General Tom Thumb,
feels the exhilaration of stepping first role after
appearing in the choruses of "Oliver!," "Joseph and
the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and "The Music
Man."
"It was a kid's part that I could get," Reck said.
"I've been waiting for a good part to come along."
In his upbeat solo number, "Bigger Isn't Better,"
Tom Thumb expresses his pride in being unique.
Playing the ringmaster is Clell Ford. MacNeill said
he brought energy to an impish role. He gives his take
on the pivotal moments in Barnum's life irreverent-
ly, as though he were announcing a circus act.

Designing teens create set for 'Barnum'


By SHARON JONES

SEBRING -
When it came to
bringing the circus
to the Highlands
Little Theatre, two
13-year-old boys
rose to the task.
The set design

Cameron Reck and
Chris Friend, oho.
incidentally. are
also part of the
cast. Cameron Reck, who plays
The fit came nat- General Tom Thumb, is one of
rally. Reck likes to two 13-year-old art designers for
draw. Friend likes 'Barnum: The Musical'
to paint. And direc-
tor Kathy MacNeill was forced to turn to the cast for
help when the set designers she had planned use to
became unavailable.
"I asked the east if they could help," MacNeill said.
"Cameron and Chris came through."
The experience opened up another world of oppor-
tunity for the boys, who ha'e each acted in three pre-
vious shows. They were kept doubly busy as they
worked on the sets and prepared for their parts at the
same time.
"It's not usually the kids who get to do something
like this," Reck explained. "They have people come in


and do it."
Friend said Reck
drew the set
designs, while he
helped with the
painting. Other cast
members and vol-
unteers helped with
construction, paint-
ing and decorating
the sets,
"I like to paint. I
can't draw. That's
not one of my spe-
cialities," Friend
Chris Friend, 13, who appears said. "I like desig.r-
here-in the chorus of "Barnum: ing. I like usingthe
The Musical,' also helped different colors,
Cameron Reck design the sets. not just the grays
and greens that the
sets usually have. I like the bright colors."
Friend incorporated his memories of his one trip to
the circus in the design. Their set has several back-
drops including the train that takes Barnum's circus
on its first trip throughout the eastern United States.
They) even painted the stairs leading up to the stage-
for the first time ever in bold circus colors.
Both boys said they were happy with the results.
"There's minor, detailed things that need to be
done, but all in all it's really good," Friend said a
week before the show was scheduled to open. "It's an
awesome set."

DIVERSIONS



'Ice Princess' is a meltdown for Disney


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
If there's anything girls like after
horses it would have to be dancing, and
add to that figure skating.
Walt Disney's new "Ice Princess" tries to
capitalize on the popularity of this sport,
and this sparkly film could have been a big
draw for general audiences as well as fami-
lies. Instead, it skates on thin ice.
Part movie, part music video, "Ice
Princess" gets double B's for bland and
boring.
The first problem is the script, which
doesn't have an original bone in its body.
The second is the leading actress, Michelle
Trachtenburg a decent skater whose act-
ing talents are too slight to carry this film.
Trachtenburg plays the ice princess,
Casey, an awkward high school physics
nerd who skates for recreation. To qualify
for a college scholarship, she embarks on a
science project that leads her to discover
the aerodynamic formula for turning per-
fect axles.
In the process, Casey is smitten with
competitive figure skating, and faced with a
dilemma Is she going to live out her
dream by sticking with the sport or get the
Harvard education her mother (Joan Cusak)
wants for her?
The story unfolds with all of the expect-
ed problems and solutions. When there's
nothing to do or say, on comes the skating
scenes and more vacuous pop music.


'ICE PRINCESS'

Director: Tim Fywell
Writers: Hadley Davis and Meg Cabot
Cast: Michelle Trachtenberg (Casey), Kim
Cattrall (Tina), Joan Cusak (Joan), Hayden
Panettiere (Gen) and Trevor Blumas (Teddy)
Released by: Buena Vista Pictures (2005)
Running time: 1 hour, 32 minutes
Rated: G
Now playing: Carmike Cinema 8 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

The characters are unlikeable and
extreme. Casey's competition, the popular
figure skaters, are snobby, and every sports
parent is an obsessive nut who drives their
daughters to succeed. The skating rink
coach, Tina (Kim Cattrall), is an ice queen
herself, given to undermining Casey as
often as she helps her.
Naturally, Casey is bright and persistent,
and she has her own ice prince waiting in
the wings, a guy who secretly roots for her
success while he waits to hook up with her.
Carelessly made, "Ice Princess" has
scenes that don't make sense like
Casey's mother complaining that if she had
gone to college she could have made some-
thing of herself, then later rushing off to
teach an English literature class.,
And it subscribes to the notion that con-
frontation is good for the soul. Everyone in


this film eventually gets read the riot act at
least once. As the film winds to a close,
these moments of truth rapidly pile up until
you may start wishing that some of the
ladies would keep their gripes to them-
selves.
The superficiality of the production can't
hide Disney's real goal adding
Trachtenberg to its growing fold of movie-
girl Mousketeers. It fails.
First Anne Hathaway got "discovered" in
the "The Princess Diaries" series, and soon
Lindsay Lohan will be out in what could be
Disney's biggest hit of the year, "Herbie:
Fully Loaded."
Hathaway has an everygirl's real, clutzy
charm and a huge singing voice, while the
willowy red-headed Lohan has confidence,
poise and knack for comedy. But
Trachtenberg doesn't possess the acting
skills of either of these girls, even if she did
have a supporting role in TV's "Buffy the
Vampire Slayer." Cute but vapid, she has a
habit of looking confused and bouncing
nervously whenever she delivers a line.
The skating is adequate. Most of the
actresses are convincing as Olympic
wannabes the middle-ranked skaters
who are better than average but will never
make it to the top. The one find is 13-year-
old Kirsten Olson, a real-life figure skater
from Savage, Minn., and the only girl in
"Ice Princess" who sparkles with personal-
ity and showmanship.


'Hostage' drags out a cartoon scenario


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Bruce Willis is the new Mr. Incredible.
In an obvious attempt to resurrect his
lucrative "Die Hard": series, "Hostage"
finds the action actor back in the fray.
Bent on rescuing two sets of captive fam-
ilies one of them his own he braves
bullets, fire, bad guys, power-hungry cops
and heartless villais:-- everything except
demons from hell, which would have not
damaged this movie's credibility if they had
popped up through the floorboards and
brought "Constantine" with them.
Only a cartoon character could take such
a beating and come out unscathed. Then
again, as "Hostage" seems to prove, action
movie heroes are cartoon characters with-
out the paint jobs.
The set up is unoriginal but not bad. Jeff
Talley (Willis) a Los Angeles hostage nego-
tiator, withstands a grueling standoff with a
deranged gunman only to see the victims
get slaughtered. One is a boy he promised
to save.
To the dismay of his own self-centered
daughter, who happens to be Willis' real-
life firstborn, Rumer, Jeff literally heads for
the hills to peaceful Bristol Camino,
where "no crime" days are a matter of pol-
icy.
We know immediately there's no escape
for Jeff. Like all superheroes, he has prob-
lems balancing his day job with his domes-
tic responsibilities, which means his family
life is falling apart and he'll soon have to
make a big, courageous sacrifice to get
them back in his comer.


That moment comes when three trashy
teens rob a convenience store and go hunt-
ing for a get-away car. They try to steal one
from a rich family but then get trapped in
the house, where they find trash bags full of
$100 bills and no way of escape.
Enter Talley to reluctantly save the day.
But then some mysterious kidnappers
snatch his family because they want him to
retrieve a CD that is important to them. Of
course it's in the house where the hostage
situation is unfolding.
This is where the story becomes a joke
- big time by mixing a random hostage
situation with one that would take extensive
planning to pull off. And it's never ade-
quately explained why the second set of
bad guys just can't want for the siege at the
home to be resolved before they quietly
complete their business.
All of the characters come to represent
the stereotypes of the action-hero movies.
Two of the teen criminals are in over their
heads (think "Dog Day Afternoon"), while
the third is a psychopathic dope-smoking
sicko who has warped intentions for his
teenage girl hostage. The other hostage-tak-
ers represent the monied crime element that
seems to have spare armored vehicles and
helicopters sitting around in their garages.
Just as grating is Talley another emo-
tionally aloof lump who wins back his
estranged family by expressing his passion
for them in a single feat of bravery.
As "Hostage" drags on, the danger
increases along with the explosions. This
stuff can be done well it was in Robert
Rodrigues' campy "Once Upon a Time in


'HOSTAGE'

Director: Florent Siri
Writer: Doug Richardson; based on the
novel by Robert Crais
Cast: Bruce Willis (Jeff Talley), Kevin
Pollack (Walter Smith), Michelle Horn
(Jennifer Smith), Ben Foster (Mars),
Jonathan Tucker (Dennis), Marshall Allman
(Kevin), Serena Scott Thomas (Jane Talley)
and Rumer Willis (Amanda Talley)
Released by: Miramax Films (2005)
Running time: 1 hour, 57 minutes
Rated: R for strong graphic violence, lan-
guage and some drug use
Now playing: Carmike Cinema 8 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

Mexico" but "Hostage" has no sense
humor. The fact that it thinks it's a serious
crime story magnifies how ridiculous it is.
Willis is his regular self still a capti-
vating actor, even though in "Hostage" he
reverts to some of the physical ticks that
tend to dog his performances and that he
once seemed to have overcome. The rest of
the cast fades, except for young Jimmy
Bennett who plays one of the hostages,
Tommy. Once he starts battling his captors
in his own fashion, he becomes the movie's
most watchable character.
When the movie ends, though, audiences
are likely to feel some empathy with the
hostages and be happy their ordeal is also
over.

Spring is here with Easter in tow.
Its miracles are awakening and the
stirring of unseen forces like the breath
of God is recreating ne\x life on earth
No beauty ever touches the earth 1j
fairer than springtime, and no promise
ever touches the human ear more glori-
ous than the triumph of life over death
and the anticipation of happiness for-
ever.
May joy rise from the depths of
every grief and move the lips of praise
in the memory of the hope that springs
eternal in every human breast. May
every sleeping hope waken to the feel
of Christ walking in the garden of each
heart.
Give bright smiles and kindliness,
the helping hand, the loving thought,
the friendly word of praise. Give
encouraging words to some lonely soul
going through dark and stormy days.

Easter reminds us that Jesus is the son of God


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING "Barnum: The
Musical" spans 30 years in the
life of showman PT. Barnum -
from the creation of his first
sideshow act to his partnership
with James Bailey.
Born in Bethel;, Conn., on July
5, 1810, Barnum held odd jobs
before he found his calling -
marketing sensational
sideshows that featured attrac-
tions too bizarre to be believed.
His first conquest was Joice
Heath, a slave, who he bought
and marketed as the 160-year-old
nursemaid of George
Washington the oldest woman
in the world.
When Heth died, she was
found to be in her 80s. By then,
Barnum's had earned a solid rep-
utation for being a skillful pro-
moter of oddities and scams -
and a fortune..
Toni Ford, who plays Heth,
sympathized with her character's
plight.
"I like character parts, and
Joice is a character to the Nth
degree," Ford said. "She was an
entertainer. And Barnum had
some good arguments to make
sure she did what he wanted her
to do: 'That sidewalk looks hard,
and you don't want to sleep there
tonight'"
Barnum went on to buy
Scudder's American Museum in
New York in 1841, where he con-

chased a week before opening,
some remain available, espe-
cially during this Easter week-
end.
MacNeill pointed out that
fish and vegetarian meals are
available for those who don't
prefer prime rib. Those meals
should be requested when pur-
chasing tickets.
During show nights, Toby's
Clowns will be entertaining
and making balloon animals
before the curtain, rises an
extra touch that will add a cir-
cus-like atmosphere to the pro-
duction. And "Barnum" is
sponsored by the News-Sun.
All in all, "Barnum" should
reflect the circus promoter's
sense of style by bringing
together a show that the whole
fainily can enjoy and, for a few
hours, recreating the magic of
"The Greatest Show on Earth."


solidated his collection of
strange historical artifacts like
strands of hair reputed to have
come from the head of
Pocahontas as well as "freaks"
such as Chen and Eng, conjoined
twins from Thailand, and the
Feejee Mermaid, who later
proved, unsurprisingly, to be a
hoax.
The occasion, captured in
"The Museum Song," gives
Chris Hayes a chance to shine as
Barnum.
"He has just opened the muse-
um, and he's describing all the
attractions that he has," Hayes
said. "It's a very fast song. It's
fun to sing."
Eventually, Barnum added
exotic animals to his menagerie
and toured the world. Among his
most profitable attractions:
Jumbo the elephant and
acclaimed Swedish opera singer
Jenny Lind.
But his most famous headlin-
ing star anid one who made him
rich in Europe alone was
General Tom Thumb. In
"Barnum," he's played by 13-
year-old Cameron Reck.
Through the play and his own
research, Reck discovered that
his character was not a general
or a dwarf and that his real
name was not Tom Thumb. He
was, in actuality, a normal boy


I il mlu I I~


who weighed 9 pounds at birth
but only grew to 25 inches in
height
"He didn't look like a dwarf.
He was perfectly proportioned,"
Reck said. "He had a great atti-
tude about his height, and never
let anything get to him. He was a
small giant, and he had a big
impact on a lot of people."
In 1871 Barnum created what
he called "The Greatest Show on
Earth." This production blended
circus entertainment, such as
clowns, trapeze artists, high wire
acts and wild animals, with his
own "museum of freaks" an
assortment of dwarfs, giants and
bearded women.
In 1881, Barnum's circus
merged with the Hutchison and
Bailey Circus. Innovators to the
end, Barnum and his new part-
ner, James Bailey, developed the
three-ring circus expanding
on the European tradition of a
single ring.
Barnum died on April 7, 1891,
at the age of 80. Bailey, survived
him by 16 years, and upon his
death the Barnum and Bailey
Circus was sold to the Ringling
Brothers.
Remnants of the Barnum cir-
cus can be seen today at the
Circus Museum, part of the John
and Mabel Ringling Museum of
Art in Sarasota.

Describing the
events of this day,
Matthew wrote:
"And when Jesus had rP.
cried out again in a
loud voice, he gave
up his spirit. At that |
moment the curtain
of the temple was
torn in two from top
to bottom. The earth A M
shook and the rocks
split. The tombs WITH
broke open and the
bodies of many holy Rev. I
people who had died Ft
were raised to life.
When the centurion
and those with him who were
guarding Jesus saw the earth-
quake and all that had hap-
pened, they were terrified, and
exclaimed, 'Surely he was the
Son of God!'"(Matthew 27:50-
52, 54)
Many events took place dur-
ing the days leading up to this
day we call "Good Friday."
Although they were observed
by many, many people refused
to see Jesus as he really was.
They viewed him as an inno-
cent victim, a foolish imposter,
a powerless boaster, and even
as a proud blasphemer. During
his life Jesus gave people the
freedom to see him as they
chose. In death, however, he
offered no such option. Those
who were there to witness
Jesus' last moment in this world
and his passing in triumph to
the next-Gentiles all-couldn't
escape the conclusion voiced
by their centurion: "Surely he
was the Son of God!" (Matthew
27:54)
When Jesus saw that he had
done all his Father had asked of

Joint Good Friday

him, he willingly
gave up his life with
a shout of victory.
The world around
him responded to the
awful truth that the
Son of God was
dead. The earth trem-
bled and shook at the
news. The curtain
that had long separat-
ed the holy of holies
from the holy place
in the temple was
torn in two, signify-
ing that we now have
direct access to the
throne of our heaven-


ly Father. Saints walked out of
their tombs into Jerusalem,
proving that Jesus' death had
given final victory over death
once and for all.
All these strange and unnatu-
ral events were witnessed by
the Roman centurion and his
detachment of troops. They had
been through the thick dark-
ness; they had seen Jesus for-
giving his enemies; they had
witnessed Jesus caring for his
loved ones from the cross. Then
they felt the earth move under


their feet, as they saw Jesus
yield his spirit back to his
Father. Having been an eye wit-
ness to the power of God mani-
fested in this man Jesus, the
Gentile centurion spoke words
of faith: "Surely he was the Son
of God!"
Those of us who know the
rest of the story rejoice that the
Roman centurion was one of
the few who truly saw Jesus as
he was. Even death could not
conquer the Son of God, as the
empty tomb on Easter morning
proved.
How do you see Jesus? God
willing, you see through the
shame and humiliation, the
weakness and suffering to
behold him as he really is, the
victorious Son of God! A
blessed Easter to everyone and
may the peace of our resurrect-
ed Savior be and abide with you
unto eternity.
