News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Most people will agree that a
sparkling clean lake, free of weeds and tus-
socks, is a igod thing. But even people who
do not live on or near a lake, who do not use a
lake for boating or fishing, are affected by the
condition of the lakes in this county.
"All of the lakes in Highlands County repre-
sent pieces of our infrastructure that we need
to maintain," said Clell Ford, Highlands
County Lakes Manager.
"If you do not look at the lakes from the
ecological standpoint, the birds, the fish and
other wildlife, you should realize what they
bring to the county in dollar value. A tremen-
dous number of dollars is generated for our
county by people visiting the lakes," Ford
added.
...When human activities create conditions
that cause invasive plants to flourish, people
must clean up after themselves to maintain a
healthy lake. The cost of such cleanup rises as
an area develops.
The state of Florida appropriates money
annually for invasive aquatic weed control in
the lakes throughout the state. Treatment costs
for removing these exotics are currently run-
ning about $2 million statewide and the

Do the economic benefits from Lake
Istokpoga's ecosystem justify the cost of con-
trolling these invasive plants?
The recently released results indicate a
resounding yes.

SEBRING This year's
law week celebrations will
offer people a way of avoiding
the legal battlefield surrounding
the Terri Schiavo case.
Sebring attorneys Robert
Livingston and Anthony
Ritenour will present a seminar
on living wills, also called
"advanced directives," as well
as the need to appoint a health
care surrogate and what it


means to have a "do not resus-
citate" order.
The session will be 5:30-6:30
p.m. Monday, April 11, in the
Sebring Public Library Meeting
Room. When asked if the meet-
ing room there would be large
enough, Livingston said it
might be worth having another
session at a larger venue.

Write it down
Livingston said terminology
can confuse people, so he and
Ritenour hope to clarify that. A
living will or advanced direc-
tive is a document that spells
out the patient's wishes for or
against artificial life support. A
health care surrogate is the per-
son charged with carrying out
that directive,

SIU to close doors


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK The
Highlands County Behavioral
Health Task Force voted Friday
to close the Substance
Intervention Unit it had con-
ceived and brought to life only
a year ago.
The unit, comprised of five
beds, opened in April of 2004.
It provided a safe place for
someone to sleep off a drunk or
a high.
Men and women had to be 18
or older and under the influence
at the time. They had to enter
voluntarily and under their own
steam and they couldn't have
medical problems, a criminal
record of sex or arson offenses,
or be violent.
The staff checked vital signs
and worked to determine if
alcoholism or addictions were
involved, and if they were,


what type of treatment would
be most useful. They also pro-
vided some counseling.
SIU was an emergency way
station; most people stayed an
average of three days. It was
intended to be an alternative to
going to jail, or having to travel
to Bartow to the detoxification
unit. It helped law enforcement
by keeping people out of the
system. By keeping people in
crisis close to home, it helped
them build support networks.
SIU had the support of local
law enforcement officials, some
of whom spoke up for it at the
Highlands County Community
Coalition's lunch for communi-
ty leaders March 9.
"It's a tremendous program,"
Avon Park Police Chief Frank
Mercurio said at the time.

ous burden on law enforce-

Fourth Annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Circle in downtown Sebring.

SEBRING It started late
last year when about half the flu
vaccine imported into the
United States was rejected due
to a manufacturing problem.
The shortage caused a panic
that there would not be enough
to go around.
By November, some people
were lining up outside of local
supermarkets as early as 5 a.m.
to make certain they got their
dose of the vaccine.
State health officials then set
strict parameters to make cer-
tain that those most susceptible
to complications from the flu
would get the shots. That subse-
quently sent some locals into a
rage because they, or one of
their loved ones certainly were
as needy, old and/or prone to
disease as anybody and should
be getting one of the shots.


Now, Highlands County
Health Department Director Dr.
Paula said they have reached
the other end of the scale. There
are more than 1,800 doses that
are sitting at the George
Boulevard facility waiting to be
administrated but virtually
nobody is interested in rolling
up their sleeves.
"We have 681 adult doses
and about 1,200 pediatric
doses," she said.
The vaccine shortage devel-
oped last fall when British reg-
ulators shut down shipments
from Chiron Corporation. The
company had made 48 million
flu doses that were slated to go
to the United States.
However, it was discovered
that some of the vaccine had
been contaminated and half the
batch was thrown out.
Because of the cutback, the

Creagan Dow

He's been a Pepper, loved
The Incredibles and now a for-
mer Sebring resident can be
seen on local television for the
AARP.
Sebring-bomrn Creagen Dow

featured in the new AARP
"Kitchen Sink" spot.
"Creagen can be seen stand-
ing with two other boys staring
at a house being torn down,"
said his mother Kate Dow from
the family's home in Los
Angeles, Calif.
The commercial began air-
ing March 21 on Network &
Cable stations. That joins the
Dr. Pepper commercial
Creagan currently appears in
called "Stacy's Mom." That
commercial; which has been
running in prime time on all
major networks catapulted
Creagen into the next category
of actors the Screen Actors
Guild. "
The 13-year-old's first
national commercial was
filmed in November 2003 when
he appeared in a Frito-Lay
commercial that has been aired
across the country.
It was in 1999 the youngster
appeared as the king as part of
the Children's Academy
Theater's Summer Workshop
production of
"Rumpelstiltskin."
He lived in Sebring until he
was 10 years old, attending
Faith Lutheran and Woodlawn
Elementary schools.
Later, Creagan took advan-
tage of acting opportunities in
nearby Orlando. Then, Creagen
told his family that he wanted
to hit the big time. So Creagen
and his parents, Lawrence and
Kate, picked up and went to the
west coast.
"We moled out her to Los
Angeles in January of 'last

The city then would be able

In other action, the council -

"It seems like everybody

themselves in their back pock-

The young Dow is moving
into his mid teens preparing
to celebrate his 14th birthday
on May 1. Still, he already has
been able to amass a fair
resume.
In May of 2004, he was
booked as the lead of Josh
Silverstein in the feature film
"Motherland." That same
month the former Sebring resi-
dent was in rehearsals for the
play "Oranges & Lemons"
where he played Edward V.
In December 2003, Creagan
spent a day in the pool filming
for the new Aqua Leisure pool
toy called, Aqua Polo. During
that same month he was in
"Paradise Walk," a theater pro-

search of more such work.
"He's been doing a lot of
auditioning," she said.
And it's not just for pilots.
She said the 13-year-old has
just finished reading for a part
in a feature film starring Billy
Bob Thornton called "Mr.

At 13, his mother said her
son now is making a transition
from kids roles to young teen

In the meantime, Creagen

SEBRING A green Honda
CRV collided with a silver
Toyota Camry at the intersec-

Josephine Drive at 2:57 p.m.
Friday.
The Honda, driven by Syed
Z. Naqvi, 37, of Sebring, hit the
Toyota, driven by Alice V.
Gray, 75, of Sebring, in the left
front quarter. It swerved to the
left and ended up in the median,
pointed across the northbound
lanes.
Gray was traveling east
across the southbound lanes of
U.S. 27 from Lake Josephine
Drive. Naqvi was traveling
south on U.S. 27 in the inside
lane. Gray failed to yield and
drove into the path of Naqvi.
The front end of Naqvi's vehi-
cle collided with the driver's


side of Gray's car.

Three charged with meth possession


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Local
police busted three men in three
separate cases Tuesday for hav-
ing methamphetamine.
All were Avon Park residents
stopped in a routine traffic stop.
Avon Park police stopped
James Beau Daniel Albritton,
20, as 12:12 a.m. on Tuesday,
March 22 at the intersection of
State Road 64 and Selph Road.
He was driving a 1996 Toyota
pickup with an obscured tem-
porary tag.
While alkitig to _Albritton,
the Avon Park police officer
- could -smell burnt cannabis
through the open drivers win-
dow.
When he asked about it,
Albritton said there were par-
tially burnt cannabis cigarettes
in the ash tray. Police had
Albritton and his passenger get
out of the car while they
searched it.
They found five partially-
smoked cannabis cigarettes in


the ash tray. They weighed 2
grams.
Police also found a Marlboro
cigarette box in the driver's
door map pocket. Inside that
box, they found seven small
plastic Baggies containing an
off-white crystal-like sub-
stance. It field-tested positive
for methamphetamine and
weighed 4 grams.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Albritton said
he purchased the "packaged'
methamphetamine and was
attempting to deliver it.
He was charged with posses-
sion of methamphetamine and
possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis. Bail was set
at $5,500.
One passenger, Derek Davon
Hinson, 32, agreed to be
searched. Police found a clear
blue plastic Baggie in his right
front pocket. It contained a
white powdery substance that
later field-tested positive of
methamphetamine and weighed
less than a gram.


Hinson was charged with
possession of methampheta-
mine, originally without bond.
His bail was ultimately set at
$15,000.
A second passenger, Michael
Keith Prevatt, 40, was not
wearing a seat belt when police
stopped them. When police
searched him, they found a
small plastic Baggie that con-
tained an off-white crystal sub-
stance under the rim of his
baseball cap.
Prevatt said the substance,
which field-tested positive' for
methamphetamine and '. eighed
about 1 gram, was not his.
Police also found two pipes -
glass and plastic in his back
pocket. They resembled the
types used to smoke metham-
phetamine. Residue in the pipes
also tested positive for the drug.
Prevatt was charged with
possession of methampheta-
mine and possession of drug
paraphernalia, with bail set at
$1,500.

Family, attorneys waiting for decision on Meus


, By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING So far, Circuit
Court Judge Charles Curry has
not issued a decision on
whether to reduce Jean Claude
Meus' sentence.
Family and friends of the 41-
year-old man went to a special
hearing Friday, March 18, to
decide whether Curry would
reduce Meus' sentence from
two concurrent 15-year prison
sentences to probation. Meus
was convicted in August 2003
of vehicular homicide in the
deaths of Nona Moore, 40, and
her daughter, Lindsey, 8, in a
May 2001 traffic crash.
Curry did not deliver a deci-
sion at the time. Meus' attorney
said that may be a good sign
since most judges that rule


against reduced sentences will
do so from the bench that day.
Meus' fiancee, Rebecca
Chenoweth, said Curry's deci-
sion must be delivered from
Bartow, but as of Thursday,
there was no word on any
change. Clerk of the courts
offices were closed Friday, both
in Bartow and Wauchula, where
Meus was tried, convicted and
sentenced.
"We're hoping no news is
good news. We're hoping he
will take his time," Chenoweth
said. "Surely, he will take the
family's wishes into considera-
tion."
Moore's sisters Dana
Christenson of Tampa, arid
Beth Jahna of Avon Park -
spoke in favor of a reduced sen-
tence on March 18, mainly


because they did not get to
speak at his original trial or sen-
tencing.
Meanwhile, Meus is waiting
in the Hardee County Jail.
Chenoweth said his blood pres-
sure acted up as a result of this,
but it's now under control with
medication. She's sure it's
related to stress.
"Jean Claude is doing as well
as can be expected,"
Chenoweth said. "He endures
well. It comes from where he
grew up. He's always adapted
really well."

News-Sun, Sunday, March 27, 2005


LAKE
continued from 1A
idents to the area, bringing
many economic benefits.
At nearly 28,000 acres, Lake
Istokpoga contains 60 percent
of the public access lake sur-
face area in Highlands County
and is one of the best fishing
lakes in the state. Residents are
avid anglers and visitors travel
from'all over Florida and the
nation to fish here. About one
out of every two tourists to the
lake area comes from outside
Florida. For these reasons,
Istokpoga was selected for the
study.
In one year alone, 2001, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
spent $3 million to remove
1,300 acres of tussocks and
invasive plants from Lake
-Istokpoga. The lake is still
infected with about 2,694 acres
of hydrilla and small areas of
other exotics.
"There is an economic
impact on the local region
measured in terms of sales,
wages and jobs as well as
recreational benefits for lake
users when invasive aquatic
plants are kept to a minimum,"
Dr. Frederick W. Bell writes in
the final report. Bell, an econo-
mist at Florida State University
and Dr. Mark Bonn of FSU's
College of Business conducted
the study.
Bell was selected because he
has developed methods to
quantify to apply dollar val-
ues to natural resources such
as lakes and recreational uses
that are outside of the market
sector. He and his team have
conducted similar studies of
lakes in North Florida and
Alabama.
Measuring the economic
value of resources such as
clean water, fish, natural plants
and other wildlife is as slippery
as handling an Istokpoga large
moutfi bass. Yet the economic
contribution of Lake Istokpoga
to Highlands County had to be
- measured to balance this
against the cost of controlling
inyasiye aquatic weeds.
,In eh\ ironmental economics,
a .prding to Bell, benefits
i-mus.-include those flowing.
S- i4he.miiarket system and
-those flowing from a non-mar-
ket s stem. In a market s stem,
goods and services are bought
and sold in an organized mar-
ket such as oranges in
Highlands County.
"Up to this point, no one
kept statistics on sales generat-
ed by Lake Istokpoga. Detailed
economic data on lakes is as
important as sales from farms
in Florida," Bell writes in his
report.

Market value
Determining market value
was comparatively easy,
according to Bell. Random
users of boat ramps, docks,
beaches, marinas and fishing
camps at Lake Istokpoga were
questioned about the amount of
money they spent on lake use
activities. Users were asked to
provide detailed information
on their spending per day, such
as lodging, food and gas.
Responses were separated into
two groups: residents and visi-
tors.
This market spending by
users produced an estimate of
the economic impact on the
local economy through inidivid-
ual expenditures and the wages


and employment generated by
users of the lake ecosystem.

Non-market system
Bell explains that the
ecosystem of a lake generates
several different kinds of eco-
nomic activity. The non-market
economic system is the most
difficult for laymen to under-
stand.
Many natural resources have
no owner, or are commonly
owned through government
bodies. There are really no
prices to ration the demands
people make on the water they
use, the fish they catch, the
scenery they enjoy, or the air
they breathe.
The economics profession
has come up with a way to
estimate these intangible mar-
ket values even in the absence
of an organized market.
Economic researchers have
devised a concept called "use
value" or what someone would
be willing to pay for fish,
water, birds and even the sight-
ing of a manatee, all of which
people enjoy but do not pay for
in an open market.
Use value is a legal concept
used by the U.S. government;
federal agencies must balance
generated use value against
government spending.
Although not legally required
by the states, it is gaining
acceptance for justifying
expenditures such as control of
invasive aquatic weeds against
the use value of the lake.

Other kinds of
economic activity
Care and maintenance of a
lake the size of Istokpoga and
its surrounding areas create
another large portion of the
local economy. Activities such
as navigation and flood con-
trol, fish and wildlife conserva-
tion, soil and water conserva-
tion and invasive plant control
contribute dollars and jobs to
this economy each year.
Add to these the participa- .
tion of Highlands County in
larger state and national proj-
ects such as the Everglades
Restoration Project and the
activities of the water manage-
ment districts and the econom-
ic impact spirals into millions
of dollars annually. Dollar
_value of.these activities were
estimated using data from the
many agencies involved.
Agricultural use of the lake


is another important contribu-
tion. Agriculture supports
about one in every seven jobs
in the county. Surface water
drawn from Lake Istokpoga is
used to irrigate crops such as
citrus and sod farms and pro-
vide water for cattle and
calves. It is estimated that this
water supports over 6,000
acres of production generating
nearly $15 million of cash
receipts from a variety of prod-
ucts.
The final analysis translates
all of the information gathered
during the study into economic
resources that are "at risk" if
Lake Istokpoga is not main-
tained as a clean and weed-free
lake.
Considerable progress has
already been made during the
past decade. Less than 10 years
ago, Lake Istokpoga had
25,000 acres of hydrilla; only
about 10 percent of that still
exists.
"People could not use the
lake," Ford said. "When you
let exotics take over, you com-
pletely change the ecology.
You have to keep them in
check, or the lake will become
a marsh. If we don't control
the hydrilla, it will completely
shut down Lake Istokpoga."

Bottom line
From this study, a new
landscape has emerged, the
lake as an economic ecosys-
tem.
The research concluded that
many facets of the economy
are at risk from invasive aquat-
ic weeds, especially hydrilla, in
both the market and non-mar-
ket sectors of the economy.
"Successful hydrilla man-
agement in Lake Istokpoga
will sustain almost $40 million
per year in numerous "market
sales" and support about $.88
million in "non-market" recre-
ational value," according to the
final report.
These enormous figures
should be compared with costs
of invasive aquatic weed con-
trol and in developing strate-
gies to accommodate hydrilla
management."
Ford agreed: "Spending our
dollars to control these exotics
maintains our resources. This
study shows that Lake
Istokpoga and all of the lakes
in Highlands County are
truly a value to the communi-
ty."

Who uses Lake Istokpoga?


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Researchers
conducting the economic
impact study of Lake Istokpoga
conducted a total of 800 person-
al interviews at the lake over a
period of one year.
Because the number of resi-
dents and visitors in this area
fluctuates from season to sea-
son, surveys were conducted in
each of the four quarters
between July 1, 2003 through
June 30, 2004.
Survey teams interviewed
200 residents and visitors per
quarter, asking lake users for
detailed information about their
spending per day on lodging,
food and gas. Information was
gathered at Lake Istokpoga
Park, public boat ramps,
Mallards Fish Resort,
Henderson's Fish Camp and
Trails End Resort. People were
also asked to describe their
activities at the lake and to pro-
vide demographic information
such as age, income, place of
residence and length of stay.
Results indicated that Lake
Istokpoga is a force attracting
tourists to this area, as opposed
to being only used as a recre-
ational resource for local resi-
dents. About one out of every
two visitors to Lake Istokpoga
comes from outside the state of
Florida. About two out of every
three fishermen come from out-
side Highlands County. This is
indicative of a wide market area
for the lake.
Most tourists to Lake
Istokpoga combine their trip
with other activities, which is
typical of people visiting an
area for more than one day. Of
those surveyed during the first
quarter of 2004 the winter vis-
itors only about one third said
that Lake Istokpoga was their
primary destination.
Investigators concluded that
this puts visits to the lake at a
great risk, since most visitors
can either divert to other lakes
or substitute different activities
if the lake is choked with inva-
sive weeds.
Visitors were asked what
they do at the lake, giving them
choices of doing a multitude of


things, or just one activity.
Surprisingly, only 10 percent
said they came just to fish by
boat. When boat fishing was
combined with other recreation
activities, the number rose to a
little more than half 57 per-
cent. A total of 17.4 percent of
the lake users stated that they
were either solely or partially
involved in shore fishing.
A substantial number of visi-
tors, 28 percent, came just to
picnic and engage in other
activities around the lake. This
revealed that there are multiple
recreational interests at Lake
Istokpoga and these attract visi-
tors from outside Highlands
County.
Residents of Highlands
County were asked the same
questions as the tourists. As
might be expected, almost 93
percent of residents said Lake
Istokpoga was their primary
destination, which is hardly sur-
prising. But again, recreational
activities were as diverse for
residents as they were for visi-
tors.
Less than half came for boat
fishing or boat. fishing com-
bined with other activities.
Nearly 25 percent were shore
fishing, or combining shore
fishing with other activities.
Slightly more than one-half of
the residents owned their own
boat used on the lake; three-
quarters of the visitors brought


their own boats.
About one-third of the resi-
dents participated in picnicking
alone or in conjunction with
other activities. A lot of organi-
zations, homeowners associa-
tions and families host picnics
and events at the lake shore
which attract people to the area.
Just the presence of the lake is
an asset in itself.
It was estimated that visitors
to Lake Istokpoga from outside
Highlands County directly
spent $2.3 million while visit-
ing the lake, which created
$328,000 in wages and about
27 jobs during the 12 months of
the study. This created a "multi-
plier effect" of about 1.3 ($1.3
created for every dollar spent
by tourists because those who
receive tourist dollars also
spend). Taking this into
account, lake tourists were
responsible for about $3 million
in spending, $410 thousand in
wages and 32 jobs.
It was estimated that resi-
dents of Highlands County
spent $1.22 million while using
Lake Istokpoga during the
study period, creating $135,000
in wages and nearly 11 full- and
part-time jobs.
The total combined econom-
ic impact of visitors and local
residents was to stimulate $4.23
million in sales, about $535,500
in wages and almost 43 jobs in
the county.

Stamp drive for Ridge Area school bus starts


A'. ws-Sun
A drive to obtain a compact
ous to serve the children of the
Ridge Area Day School will
begin this week, Mrs. Samuel
A. King, president of the Ridge
Area Association for Retarded
Children said, in announcing
that Dr. T.M. Daniel, will serve
as general chairman of the
"Stamps for a Bus" Fund. The
public will not be asked for
money, but will be asked to
donate books of trading stamps.
Directors of the Association
have received the assurance of
the stamp companies that a
compact bus-type vehicle may
be secured for under 1,000
books of trading stamps.
Any stamp book given in this
area may be donated. Boxes
marked "Stamps for Ridge Area
School Bus Deposit Here"
will be placed in all supermar-


kets throughout the county.
Loose stamps will be gratefully
accepted as well.
The Student Councils of the
County High Schools have
offered their support in collect-
ing stamp books from families
of school students. Competition
between classes within the
schools and between schools in


the county is generating a real
contest. Student Council lead-
ers have aroused excitement in
the student bodies as "Stamps

DH FEMA publishes updated guide


on preparing for hurricanes

The Landsharks will be entertaining Ridge Area Arc's Kokomo fund-raiser Saturday, April 23, at the
Candlelight Restaurant in Sebring. They play the sounds of Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley.

Landsharks playing at



Arc's Kokomo fund-raiser


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For nearly 15
years the Landsharks band has
been widely known as the most
entertaining party band and
now they will fill Ridge Area
Arc's Kokomo fund-raiser
Saturday, April 23, with the
sounds of Jimmy Buffett and
other favorites like Bob Marley.
The band began in 1990
when front man Gary Roland
took a hiatus from his job in
New Jersey to travel and play
his music in Florida. While in
Florida, he founded the
Landsharks. Since then, the
Landsharks have performed for
millions of people all over the
world. For years the band has
traveled and played from Key
West to Diego Garcia, an island
in the middle of the Indian
Ocean that is home to a U.S.
Naval Refueling Base.
In 1998, the Landsharks were
performing at a concert in Key
West when Buffett made a sur-
prise visit and asked if he could
perform with the band. After
the performance he hired to be
the house band for his new
Margaritaville Cafe at


Universal Studios in Orlando
and had them as his opening act
at the grand opening of the
restaurant.
Buffett hails the Landsharks
as a "fun band." He said the
funny thing was the band knew
his songs better than he did. The
Landsharks have performed
with Buffett several times since
and they say they never know
where he will show up.
The band has performed with
some very impressive artists
like Patti LaBelle, Three Dog
Night, War, and the Beach
Boys. The Landsharks have
performed hundreds of shows
in Walt Disney, including the
Millennium New Year's Eve
Show. The band was selected
from thousands of entrants to be
the opening act for the Beach
Boys at the First Flight
Centennial Celebration in Kitty
Hawk, N.C. Most recently the
band played twice for the New
England Patriots organization
during its Super Bowl XXXIX
festivities, including the post
game party.
, The band can. also boast
about who they have performed


for; Microsoft founder Bill
Gates, Michael Eisner of Walt
Disney, Filmmaker George
Lucas and the prime minister of
Canada.
"We are excited to have the
Landsharks perform at Kokomo
this year," said Arc's Director
of Development Kathleen
Border. "We were looking for a
great beach band with a lot of
audience interaction and we
found it in this band. We got
lucky to book them because the
band's manager tells me they
have just finished work on their
new CD and will begin tour-
ing."
For more information about
Kokomo or to purchase tickets
call Border at 452-1295, ext.
106. Tickets are $50 and
include dinner, dessert, all you
can drink beverages and the
Landsharks concert. Seating is
limited so respond early.

it organization that provides
programs for people with devel-
opmental disabilities from-
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties.


SEBRING With another-
hurricane season upon us, the
U.S. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency has pub-
lished an updated, in-depth
guide to citizen disaster pre-
paredness titled, "Are You
Ready?"
It is available to anyone look-
ing for a comprehensive infor-
mation source of what to do
before, during and after a disas-
ter strikes.
The guide provides a step-
by-step approach to disaster
preparedness. It walks the read-
er through information on how
to get informed about local
emergency plans, identifying
hazards that affect their area,
instructing them on how to
developing an emergency com-
munications plan and building a
disaster supplies kit.
Other guide topics are evacu-
ation, emergency public shel-
ters, animals in disaster and
information specific to people
with disabilities. The prepared-
ness facts are based on the most
reliable hazard awareness and
emergency education informa-
tion including advances in sci-,
entific knowledge, the most
accurate technical language and
the latest physical research on
what happens in disasters.
"Being prepared for disasters
is everyone's personal responsi-
bility and the "Are You
Ready?" guide can be a key tool
to enable families to protect
themselves against all hazards,"
said Bill Carwile, the FEMA
federal coordinating officer.
"We are making these publica-
tions available to the public at
all of our 21 Disaster Recovery
Centers."
To broaden the usage of the
publication, a facilitator guide
is available for those interested
in delivering the disaster pre-
paredness content or in a class-
room or small group setting.
The facilitator guide includes
training modules for adults and
school children. It also contains
a;,CD ROM tool-kit with
resources such as customizable


slides and hazard-specific fact
sheets.
The guide also can be us as a
study manual with credit
awarded for successful comple-
tion with a 75 percent score on
a final exam. Questions about
the exam should be directed to
http:/Av/ww.training.feina.gov/e
miweb/is or by calling (800)
238-3358. College credit for the
course is also being offered
through Frederick Community
College, Frederick, Md.
The 200-plus-page "Are You -
Ready?" guide is FEMA's pre-
mier, preparedness resource
catalog and is also available
from the FEMA Web site. Log

mation. They cover the follow-


ing citizen preparedness topics:
Preparing for disaster
Food and Water in an
Emergency
Preparedness for Disaster
for People with Disabilities and
Other Special Needs
Helping Children Cope
with Disaster.

tion of Florida's state agencies

Law Week to have several


events for county residents


How do you feel about Michael Schiavo's legal battle

to have his wife's feeding tube removed?


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County is gearing up
for the second year of Law Week seminars and
events.
County Court Judge Peter Estrada and the Law
Day Committee have scheduled visits to the
schools the next few weeks to talk to the students
about Law Day and essay and photography con-
tests to illustrate principles of law and how cer-
tain rights are protected by law.
One of the elementary schools is planning to
participating in the photography contest for the
first time. Contests are open to al schools, pub-
lic, private and homeschools. The photography
and posters will be displayed on the front win-
dows of the Government Center, 600 S.
Commerce Ave. This is the same location as last
year.
Deadline for contest entries is 5 p.m. Tuesday
at the Law Library at the courthouse.

Law Day
Highlands County will celebrate Law Day
early,' on April 21. An adult invitation-only
awards presentation with luncheon will take
place at the Sebring Civic Center 12-2:20 p.m.,
and a public community reception will take place
from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in Courtroom I B at the
Highlands County Courthouse.
Justice Barbara Pariente, chief justice of the
Florida Supreme Court, will speak for the Law
Day program from 3:45-5 p.m. at the Highlands
County Government Center. This is the first time
a sitting chief justice has visited Highlands


LAW
Continued from 1A
The best such documents,
Livingston said, follow the
statute exactly in regard to life
support for a person with a ter-
minal condition, end-stage con-
dition or a persistent vegetative
state. Some of the kits offered
by hospitals or available
through the Internet may not
match Florida statutes.
"It must match the statute,
because if push comes to shove,
it's going to the courts," he said.
Once a person is assigned as
a health care surrogate or to
have medical power of attorney,
that person must be able to
prove the patient's intentions.
- That's where the living will, or
.-- advanced directive, comes in.

Schiavo's case
Terri Schiavo's parents and
her husband disagree on her
true intentions. Her parents,
Mary and Bob Schindler, have
asked the U.S. Supreme Court
to order the reinsertion of


County.
Students, including two high school seniors
who worked with teen court, will receive awards.
The Avonaires from Avon Elementary School in
Avon Park will be singing. Cookies and punch
for the students will be donated by Highlands
Regional Medical Center.

Law Week seminars
During Law Week April 11-15 attorneys
will give free legal seminars.
A Living Wills seminar is from 5:30-6:30
p.m. Monday, April 11, in the Sebring Public
Library Meeting Room, and presented by Sebring
attorneys Robert Livingston and Anthony
Ritenour.
An Unmarried Parent's Rights seminar is
from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 12, also in
the Sebring Library. Local family law attorneys
Janette Branham of Avon Park and Alison Copley
of Sebring, will teach about Florida laws on
unmarried parent's rights, including custody, vis-
itation and child support.
Seminars are on a first come, first serve basis.
If the sessions become crowded, attorneys may
divide up the group and teach separately.
The Highlands County Bar Association and the
Justice Parker Lee McDonald Law Library a
Highlands County public library are sponsor-
ing the seminars, which are free and open to all.
For more information, call Nancy Thomas at the
Highlands County Law Library, 402-6621.

www.lawday.org on the Internet.


Schiavo's feeding tube, which
was removed March 18 with a
Florida judge's approval.
Schiavo, 41, began her
eighth day without a feeding
tube Saturday. Doctors predict
she could die within a week or
two. Her lawyers, however,
have said Schiavo may not sur-
vive the weekend.
Schiavo suffered brain dam-
age in 1990 when her heart
stopped tbriefly from a chemical
imbatafle, believed caused by
an e disorder. Court-
appointed doctors say she is in a
persistent vegetative state with
no hope of recovery. Her par-
ents argue that she could get
better and that she would never
have wanted to be cut off from
food and water. Schiavo's hus-
band, Michael, disagrees and, a
state judge has sided repeatedly
with him.'
The parents, who believe
their daughter could improve,
took their case back to the 11th
U.S. Cirtcuit Court of Appeals in
Atlanta the same court that
has ruled against them twice
this week and were denied.
Pinellas Circuit Judge


Doris Gentry leaves post at

Ridge Area Arc Foundation


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK After more
than a decade of service, Doris
Gentry recently stepped down
as chair of the Ridge Area Arc
Foundation Board of Trustees.
"There are some people you
just thank for their service and
move on," said incoming chair
Mary Swaine. "Doris is not one
of those people. We would not
be where we are today were it
not for Doris, hard work and
dedication."
Gentry was instrumental in
1993 when the dream of creat-
ing a Foundation that would
ensure that services were avail-
able for people with develop-
mental disabilities in our area
for generations finally came to
fruition.
The story of the Ridge Area
Arc is a wonderful example of a
grass-roots effort that shaped
the nation in its early years.
Ridge Area Arc was founded in
1957 by Franklyn and Mary
Ellen Ward, along with a group
of local parents who had chil-
dren with developmental dis-
abilities. The group was seek-
ing a non-institutional agency
that would allow their children
to grow and learn at their own
pace while teaching them the
skills necessary to be as inde-
pendent as possible. The
agency took care of an immedi-
ate crucial need in our commu-
nity, but its founders and early
supporters understood that in
order to perpetuate they would
need to rely less on the state for
funding and more on communi-
ty supporters.
In 1991, Arc received a gift
from the George H. Buck
Memorial Foundation and
agreed to use a large portion of
the gift to create an endowment
fund for the agency. Several
other gifts made to the Ridge
Area Arc were set aside for the


foundation including a contri-
bution from founder Mary
Ellen Ward, parents and sup-
porters Duane and Marilyn
Eldred and from the Elsie
Brooks, Irene Ferrin, and
Marguerite Grigsby estates.
Gentry and the foundation
trustees worked closely with
then Executiie Director
Kathleen Cowan and former
Development Director Debra
McCullough for two years to
develop bylaws and guidelines
for the agency and prepare the
necessary paperwork for the
Internal Revenue Service. The
foundaitrm received notifica-
lion A 1, 1993, that it had
qualiTed for tax exempt status
and opened the door for the
Foundation to offer tax benefits
to supporters.
"As a taxpayer I can appreci-
ate the quality of care that
Ridge Area Arc provides
through such a cost effective
meatns," .ttis said.

George Greer on Saturday
denied another attempt by Terri
Schiavo's parents to reconnect
her feeding tube, rejecting what
the couple's lawyer described
as their last chance to keep their
daughter alive.
The Schindlers still hope for
an unlikely intervention by
Gov. Jeb Bush, who has said he
has done everything in his
power to take custody of
Schiavo.
This whole disagreement is
the basis for the legal battle
because Schiavo never filed an
advanced directive, Livingston
said. It's not unusual for family
members to disagree.
"The patient should make the
call, not the family," he said..
Whatever that decision is,
people should get it in writing,

parents are forever."
Roger Maule, Sebring



"He just wants to get
rid of her. Who is show-
ing love, her husband or
her parents?"
Robert Padden,
Sebring




"I don't think he
should have her feeding
tube removed, he should
leave it up to her par-
ents. I am against it."
Jeanne Davis,
Gainesville, who was
visiting Sebring


"I don't think Michael Schiavo is trying
to be spiteful, but it's been 15 years and
Terri's condition has not improved. So, I
think he just wants to move on with his
life. Although if the new developments in
this case are true and she is in a con-
scious state where she can respond to her
surrounds then that changes things."
Jenny Curtis, Sebring

Waiting for a call


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Patricia Hill braids the hair of her daughter, Tamika, Friday while sitting at their Avon Park home. The
Hills patiently wait for the phone call that could save Tamika's life. She is now on the top of the waiting
list to get a liver transplant.


- APHS student


gets


placed


first on liver transplant list


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Tamika Hill, a freshman at
Avon Park High School, has been fighting for her
life battling sclerosis of the liver for the past two
years.
Only 16, she needs a liver transplant in order to
survive. Right now. she is maintaining her health
with medications so she will be eligible for that
transplant.
Her mother, Patricia Hill, a certified nurse's
aid, was let go by her last employer because she
had to spend so much time getting Tamika to doc-
tors' appointments and the hospital.
Despite their struggle, the Hills are celebrating
this Easter because they just received word that
Tamika has been moved to the top of the trans-
plant list, and any minute now they may get the
telephone call which could save her life.
Patricia has suitcases packed and ready, and
she never goes anywhere without her cell phone.
She has been told that most phone calls come in
the early morning, around 3 a.m. Then there will
be the four hour drive to Shands Hospital at the
University of Florida, Gainesville.
Tamika's disease first manifested itself in the
summer of 2002, when she became lethargic and
stopped playing as she used to. When she became
jaundiced, her mother, who worked at Florida


'I just pray that if a per-

Hospital in Lake Placid at the time, knew some-
thing was drastically wrong.
It took six months and an open biopsy of
Tamika's liver before a diagnosis could be made.
The Hills are very aware the news is bitter-
sweet their hope being born out of another's
sorrow. "I just pray," Patricia said, "that if a per-
son has to die, he has accepted God into his life."
Florida Hospital in Lake Placid has opened a
trust fund at the Mid-Florida Federal Credit
Union for Tamika where donations are being
accepted to offset the costs of travel, recovery
and medications. She is looking at a six-month
period of recovery.
An account at the Highlands County Blood
Bank also has been opened, and people are wel-
come to donate blood in her name.

SIU
Continued from 1A
ment. SIU removes these peo-
ple from the jail."
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton pointed out the
intersection of social services
and police work.
"There are no solutions for
crime," she said, "the preven-
tion side is where it's at. There
are, two schools of thought,
'love 'em and hug 'em,' and
'trail, nail and jail.' What we
need is a blend, because a lot of
what we do is social work --
with people in crisis."
The Substance Intervention
Unit, which was part of the Tri-
County Human Services
umbrella, was designed with
this intersection in mind.


FLU
Continued from 1A
Highlands County Health
Department, following state
guidelines, began an aggressive
campaign to get the vaccine tqo
at-rsk residents and he people 2
who cared for them.
The list included the very
elderly, the very young and
their caregivers. Health depart-
ment workers actually went to
nursing homes and long term
car facilities to dispense the
vaccine assuring residents
that there would be enough to
go around as state and national
officials went in search of alter-
nate providers:
Telephone lines were
jammed as people jockeyed to
get at the front of the line for
the shots.
By Dec. 1, health department
officials were able to announce
the receipt of 4,800 additional
doses of flu vaccine which
were distributed to local physi-
cians.
Later, they announced that
the requirements to be eligible
for flu shots had been relaxed
to include more people.
It was in January that Thaqi
announced shots would be
available as part of a two day
clinic.
Now, despite the fact that flu
season is in full swing, there's
virtually no demand for the
stuff.
"If we give out four shots a
week now that's a lot,"
Thaqi said.


Unfortunately, in the year of
its operation SIU only served
93 people, far fewer than the
original estimate of 175.
Recently, when state dollars
for the program dried up, and
local money could not be found
because of the under usage, Tri-
County Human Services used
its own funds to keep the oper-
ation going.
The task force left open the


possibility of reactivating the
SIU in the future, but such
revamping depends on an
absolute assurance of matching
local dollars.
SIU was at 100 W. College
Drive, using facilities which
belong to the Florida Center for
Dual Disorders. That operation,
which is part of a statewide net-
work, is not affected by the
closing of SIU.

Twelfth prayer
breakfast sells
110 tickets
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Many people
may wonder what it was like to
walk alongside Jesus Christ.
At the 12th Annual Sebring
Noon Kiwanis Good Friday
Prayer Breakfast, keynote
speaker Richard Duerksen,
assistant vice president for mis-
sion development at Florida
Hospital in Orlando, let people
see it.
He made a speech Friday
morning as Nicodemus of the
Sanhedrin talking about writing
a book called "The Messiahs I
Have Known." The Sanhedrin
had to keep track of all possible
messiahs- people convinced it
was their purpose to be God's
representatives for others so
they would know when "the
one" had arrived. Many chil-
dren, especially those born near
Bethlehem, were named Jesus,
just in case.
Jesus of Nazareth was differ-
ent.
Instead of trying to attract
attention, this Jesus kept .to
back alleys where only the
poorest people lived, and where
pain was the greatest. He turned
his back on the Pharisees and
would tell stories to children,
cross-legged in the dust.
Nicodemus took notes, try-
ing to find out what Jesus was
about. Every time he tried to
talk to him though, people
would come to Jesus for help,
and away he went.
He finally got a chance in a


garden one night. Nicodemus
began to ask questions, but
Jesus stopped him, warning he
would never be in heaven
unless he is born again.
"That makes no sense,"
Nicodemus said, and started to
argue. Jesus stopped him.
"Nicodemus, you can't get to
heaven unless born by water
and the spirit."
Nicodemus
had seen Jesus
demand
Lazarus' tomb
be opened
when the man
had been
buried more
DUERKSEN than four days.
There stood
Lazarus, tightly bound, but
alive.
One Thursday night, some of
the high priests had arrested
Jesus and worked to get him
crucified. By the time
Nicodemus got involved, it was
too late. He watched Jesus walk
by with a cross.
"They were taking away my
savior, and I was doing nothing
to stop it," he said.
In his wake were beggars
looking for coins in the dust.
Nicodemus threw a few coins
to them and then realized Jesus
had said "take the best you have
and give it away," which was
what he was doing.
Joseph of Arimathaea had
asked Pontius Pilate for the
body, and asked Nicodemus to
help him embalm Jesus.
Nicodemus raced home, gath-
ered all his wealth and rushed
out to spend it all on purchase
myrrh, aloe, cinnamon and
other spices.
As Nicodemus ran through


Doctor impersonation in Avon Park wins


News-Sun
AVON PARK At 7:15 p.m.
Tuesday, March 22, a man called
the CVS Pharmacy and left a
P voice mail, pretending to be a
-local d6ortor requesting a pre-
scription tf Vicodin ES.
According to arrest reports,


he was actually Henry Ellis
Rimes, 24, of Sebring, asking to
have the prescription left in the
name of his wife.
When the pharmacy called the
real doctor, he said-the prescrip-
tion was false, arid 'the caller
should be arrested.


the streets with as much as 75-
100 pounds of spices and oils in
sacks on his back, Duerksen
wondered if people didn't think
Nicodemus looked like he'd
changed.
"He's not the same guy," he
said. "It's as if he's been born
again."
Each year, the Sebring Noon
Kiwanis hosts the breakfast on
Good Friday as a non-denomi-
national event to encourage the
joining of people to reaffirm
their belief in God and the res-
urrection of his son, Jesus
Christ.
This year, the event sold 110
tickets, although the event was
attended by about 75 percent of
those people. Florida Senator
J.D. Alexander was unable to
attend as scheduled, however
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton did attend and
gave the invocation. In her
prayer she recalled how Jesus
asked people to do two things:
Love God and love each other.
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center hosted the
breakfast. Creative Printing in
Sebring provided programs.
Harmony Three Jill
Jernigan, Becky McIntyre, and
Karen McFadden sang two
hymns after the introduction.
United States and Florida
colors for the event were posted
by the Highlands County Civil
Air Patrol Cadet Honor Guard,
comprised of Cadet Airman
Michael LaVo, Cadet Airman
Clarence Gochenour, Staff Sgt.
Elizabeth Sager and Cadet
Airman 1st Class Joseph
Rogers, and led by Honor
Guard Chaplain Lt. Col. Harold
Johnson.

pleted their investigations. When

If ever American ingenuity
comes up with a telephone that
can be surgically embedded in
one's ear, Gary Musselman,
owner and operator of
Musselman's Appliance & TV,
will probably be the first in line
to buy one.
In the relatively short time I
spent with him on Tuesday,
Musselman spent most of the
time answering calls, or mak-
ing them himself.
"That's the one thing you'll
find in your notes by the end of
the day," he said. "We answer
the phone at least 100 times a
day."
Then he was interrupted by a
telephone call (checking on a
stove price and yes it did come
with a hood).
Just as he was hanging up, a
couple walked in, return cus-
tomers, who were doing hurri-
cane damage replacement
shopping. I hung back eaves-
dropping as they explained
their needs a dishwasher
and an in-wall microwave
oven.
Musselman's phone rang
and he politely excused him-
self. I took advantage of the
break to get more details.

Appliance sales run hot and cold


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Gary Musselman has
no doubts about what makes a good
salesman.
"First and foremost is honesty," he
said. "Then you need product knowl-
edge and personality. Knowledge you
can teach but personality is up to the
individual."
Musselman should know, he has been
selling appliances for close to 30 years,
and for the last four has been operating
his own business, Musselman's
Appliance & TV, with his wife, Claudia.
It is a family establishment which has
already outgrown one site and moved to
another. Claudia's brother, Rick
Robbins, who Musselman hired away
from a career in supermarket manage-
ment, is Musselman's right-hand man.


'It's like a
friend
once told
me, 'If
you're
doing it
right -
you'll
grow.'
GARY MUSSELMAN


Together they
sell a full line of
household appli-
ances and televi-
sion sets.
Musselman
knows his inven-
tory down to the
last piece, and
can make his
way through the
tangled maze of
appliance manu-
facturers.
It turns out, for
instance, that
there are only
four companies
producing house-
hold appliances
in the United


States: General Electric, which makes
Hot Point; Whirlpool, which makes
Roper, Estate and Kitchen Aid; Maytag,
which makes Amana, Jenn-air, Admiral
and Magic Chef; and Electrolux, which
makes Frigidaire, Westinghouse, Tappan
and Gibson.
Musselman quickly ticked the names
off on his fingers. It isn't that hard to
learn the field, he said A company rep-


resentative taught him. commission because ne wants mte cus-
Photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Gary Musselman, owner of Musselman's Appliance & TV in Sebring talks with Helen
Schnepf, of Lake Placid. 'She was looking for headphones that could be used with a tel-
evision set.


"Take the book home and learn what
the top of the line items have, that way
you also know the upgrades. It's easier
to take away, than add," he said.
In other words, by starting at the top
and working down, a salesman can draw
a clearer picture of what each model
offers, and what people get for their
money.
Musselman explained that some com-
panies make different models identical-
ly, but not all do; there are real differ-
ences between many models, and a wide
price range. He added that load size isn't
the most important feature on a washer
or dryer, the number of speeds and heat
controls are.
Muswelman doesn't paN'\ alemen a


tomer's needs to be the focus, not the
pushing of one brand over another.
Business is brisk, however, with devel-
opers buying as well as individuals, so
even without commissions an experi-
enced salesman can make $35,000 a
year.
"We're real proud of what we do
here," he said. "It's like a friend once
told tme, 'If you're doing it right -
you'll grow.' "
Musselman's Appliance & TV is at
4230 U.S. 27 N. It is open from 9 a.m. to
6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Friday; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday;
and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. It is closed
Sunday. The telephone number is 386-

Terranovus.net provides



computer classes in new



Sebring learning center "


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Sue Ann
Barhite helps Terranovus.net
reach out in the community by
providing educational classes in
its new learning center.
"We recently opened our new
learning center, which is within
walking distance of the corpo-
rate office, and it has been a real
success," said Barhite, opera-
tions and training manager at
Terranovus.net. "This commu-
nity is important to us. That's
why we decided to offer educa-
tional classes. There was an
immediate and overwhelming
response for them."
These two-hour classes offer
computer basics; another class
covers Internet usage (with tips
on security, virus attacks and
spy ware); A third class covers
email usage, tips and tricks,
security and spam. These cours-
es are $20 for subscribers and
$25 for non-subscribers., The


majority of these students are
the elderly who need basic
knowledge for getting started.
Because they are usually the
most susceptible, that's why
teaching safety and security is
so critical today.
"We encourage students to e-
mail specific questions when
they register. When they arrive
in class, we give them a hand-
out of exactly how to do it.
After the course, we can e-mail
a step-by-step answer that they
can print out and follow,"
Barhite said. "I love doing this.
I feel like I'm in my element
helping people learn. I like to
see those light bulbs go on."
Because these introductory
classes were so successful,
Barhite will now be teaching
more advanced two-hour class-
es on programs such as Word,
Excel, Power Point and
QuickBooks. For $75 an hour,
companies can rent the room so
their staff can meet for custom-


designed education classes on
any specific program.
"We want to cater to what
this community wants," Barhite
said.
To sign up for classes, e-mail
at tlc@terranovus.net.
Barhite has degrees in com-
puter programming, network
administration, Microsoft com-
puting, business systems, plus
she's a certified teacher for non-
credit courses. In addition, she's
a Dell and Microsoft certified
technician. So if someone has a
computer, or problems with it,
she's the one to call.
Terranovus.net has now
added new repair service cover-
ing modems, tune-ups, system
updates, and removal of virus
and -spy ware from computers.
In addition, it has the only
Internet service provider in the
country in partnership with
McAfee that offers solutions for
Internet safety.


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Sue Ann Barhite shows a Power Point presentation in the Terranovus.net learning center


"We actually had a price
reduction on our Internet serv-
ice, loweritig 13 percent on
dial-up and DSL services,
which we passed directly to our
customers. We're always look-
ing for ways to improve, offer
more services, and fill more


needs in this community. We
want to be the best," Barhite
said.
Terranovus.net offers
Internet access at affordable
prices to residential and com-
mercial accounts. Its friendly
and free technical support is
available 24/7. For sign-up,


repairs, or billing questions, the
corporate office is at 4325 Sun
'N Lake Blvd., Suite 101. Its
hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday and
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

the kitchen.
Diana Quillen went to inves-
tigate, and when she opened the
microwave, .which was
,installed in the wall above the
stove and vented to the outside,
water poured out soaking her,
literally filling her shoes.
Ironically, because they only
had a leak and so many others
had no roofs at all, repairs to the
vent were delayed for months,
so the kitchen was twice more
inundated when Frances and
Jeanne barreled through.
To make a long story medi-
um sized, mold and mildew set
in, so the Quillens had to have
their kitchen gutted, down to
the' studs, with the dry wall
bagged and hauled away, and
the cabinets burned.
For five weeks their kitchen
had been balanced on a card
table in the garage, and they
had two to three weeks to go.
They chose a ventless
microwave.
But I learned something else
from this tale.
When Musselman returned
and the Quillens expressed an
interest in a Maytag dishwash-
er, he explained that Maytag
owned Amana, and Amana
dishwashers were manufac-
tured in the same factory, by the.
same design, to same qualifica-
tions as the Maytag machines.
Only the front and logo were


different; and the price the
Amana costs $80 less.
The Quillens made their
selection and the phone rang.
When he was done (freezers
only come in white) he grinned,
"You'll like this next phone call
I have to make, I have to bite
somebody."
It turned out a collection
agency Musselman fired was
harassing a customer who had
paid his bill. He spent more
time on hold with them than he
did in conversation, but he got
the problem solved.
Then the telephone rang (an
ice maker needed repair).
As he hung up a customer
approached him, "I got a ques-
tion," she said.
"I got an answer," he replied.
Her husband was a former
GE employee, did they get a
discount? That would be up to
corporate office, they would
have to call GE.
Then Musselman got back on
the phone calling Frigidaire
looking for an overdue order of
washers and dryers. "Now they
say they'll be another two
weeks," he said as he hung up
in disgust.
And the telephone rang
again.

Barnstormers take flight in

ness person who has a job they

SEBRING The new Quizno's sub
store in the Southgate Shopping Center
boasts 1,200 square feet and will seat 19
customers when it opens April 1.
It's located in the shopping center
between Apple A Day health food store and
Hometown Travel, and is what's known as
a "today" store.
Franchise owner Eric Eisnaugle is busy
getting the new store up and running and
hiring people. The "today" label not only
means a new store, but the offering of new
products. Having lived in Sebring since


1980, he brought the first Quizno's to
Highlands County two years ago. To build
on that established success, Eisnaugle felt
this new location would reach an entirely
different customer since there's six miles
and Lake Jackson between them.
"We're different from other sub places in
that we have hot Toasty subs," Eisnaugle
said.
His first store is at 4141 U.S. 27 North.
The prices range from $3.99 for a small
sub to $5.49 for a regular and a large sub
goes for $7.79. Plus there's a flatbread sub
for $4.79.
The Toasty subs include Philly cheese


steak and a black angus steak is served on a
rosemary parmesan bread with mozzarella,
cheddar, mushrooms, sauted onions, honey
bourbon mustard and zesty grilled sauce.
Reasonably priced fresh soups and sal-
ads are available, as are desserts and drinks.
In addition there are Kidz meals and Toasty
combos that come with a drink.
Quizno's is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9
p.m. every day and they also cater party
platters, dessert trays, and box. lunches, of
subs, salads or soups. '

Schiavo's plight



stresses need for



living wills

The Terri Schiavo case has dominated the news and
most private conversations this week.
Everyone has an opinion of what should be done -
whether it is more humane to let the severely brain-dam-
aged woman continue to receive medical care or to let her
die by denying her the treatment specifically, a feeding
tube that would prolong her life.
In 1990, Terri suffered a heart attack that deprived her of
oxygen. Neurologists say it has left her in a persistent veg-
etative state. For the past seven years, her case has lum-
bered through the judicial system because her family can-
not agree on what her wishes would have been under the
circumstances.
Terri's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, have cam-
paigned to keep her alive. Her husband, Michael Schiavo,
has fought to remove any artificial type of life support that
would continue her life. He has maintained she once told
him she would not have wanted to live under those cir-
cumstances.
Regardless of whichever side we are personally inclined
to support, the fact is that no one knows Terri's wishes. She
never made out a living will or expressed her thoughts in
writing on the subject.
Had she done so, her desires would have been made
clear under the circumstances, but her failure to do that
does not make her unique. Few people, particularly the
young, have living wills or end-of-life directives. Terri's
case emphasizes the need for them.
According to the Florida Bar Association, Chapter 765
of the Florida Statutes give every competent adult the right
to make decisions about his or her health. They can refuse
or deny medical treatment or procedures that would pro-
long their lives when they have no hope of recovering from
a terminal condition. Under current state law, life-prolong-
ing treatment includes administering food and water in a
case of a hopeless terminal condition.
A living will is the place for each person to express his
. or her wishes, says the Florida Bari but it must follow cer-
tain standards to be considered legal. It must be signed by
you and two people who are not related to you. If you do
not have the ability to write, for whatever reason, you may
designate a person to sign a living will on your behalf.
Living wills made in other states are recognized in
Florida, providing they comply with its laws.
When making a living will, it's important to designate a
surrogate a person who will make decisions about the
health care you will receive should you become incapaci-
tated.
Even then, living wills are useless if no one knows about
them. Give a copy of your living will to your doctor or to
file it with your medical records. Let your family know
what decisions you have made.
Living will forms can be found in Chapter 765.303 of
the Florida Statutes and on the Internet by using any search
engine. A good place to start is at the Florida Bar's Web
site, www.flabar.org, which has free living will forms and
more information about this topic.
Most people may never need a living will, but it is nev-
ertheless good insurance. It provides the peace of mind that
your wishes will be known in the event of a catastrophe
and relieve other people of the burden of making decisions
for you.





WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINION.
How do you feel about Michael
Schiavo's legal battle to have his wife's
feeding tube removed?

Children and
Youth Month set
Editor:
The American Legion will
observe Children and Youth
Month during April,
Commander Richard Francis of
Avon Park Post 69 is proud to
announce. Participating with
Post 69 in this observance will
be the members of the
American Legion Auxiliary, the
Forty & Eight and the Sons of
American Legion.
The observance here in Avon
Park will be once of many
throughout the nation as some
15,000 Legion posts and nearly
14,000 auxiliary units plan spe-
cial events to emphasize the
Legion's continuing concern
for the well-being of the coun-
try's children and youth.
For more than 75 years, the
American Legion and its affili-
ated organizations have donated
countless hours of volunteer
effort and millions of dollars in
support of programs and activi-
ties for the benefit of ,children
and-youth. Commander.Francis-
reported. Since the beginning of
these programs in 1926, the
American Legion and its affili-
ates have reported expenditures
of over one half billion dollars.
The national theme of the
American Legion's Children
and Youth Month is "Children
... Our Most Precious National
Resource." Over the years, the
Legion has developed many
programs to serve the youth of
this nation. By providing a solid
foundation and adequate oppor-
tunities for children to realize
their future, we are helping to
ensure our own.
Commander Francis listed
three major areas of concern to
which the American Legion is
focusing its attention on a
national basis: Child health,
child safety and family preser-
vation.
Locally, the American
Legion and the American
Legion Auxiliary as well as our
Forty & Eight affiliate have
made meaningful contributions
to the well-being of the children
and youth of Highlands County
and Avon Park through such
programs and endeavors as:
Reserve Officers' Training
Corps awards, certificates and
medals, scholarships for nurs-
ing training, programs in
schools to educate the children
on our flag, history and veter-
ans and what they all mean. The
post has for many years had an
, angel tree for children's gifts,
put on special parties and pro-
grams at the children's home,
help purchase carpet for the
children's home and painted
bedrooms. Bonds and awards
te given out each year for pro-
grams and work achievements
in the grade school and junior
high and Halloween and drug
safety brochures and programs
have been made available. The
post also had a wonderful
Veteran's Day program and
have flag disposal programs for
the Girl Scouts and community
to partake in. Working together


we have always looked to our
future through the eyes of the
children of our community.

Fight to save
Terri Schiavo
Editor:
I urge everyone to join in the
fight to save Terri's life. We are
entering dangerous legal
ground if we allow the courts or
anyone else to judge someone's
right to live or the quality of
his/her life. That is opening the
door for anyone who is deemed
disabled or unwanted a burden
and at danger of being put to
death. Criminals on death row
get more humane treatment
than Terri Schindler Schiavo.
How can America turn their
backs on this woman. A disabil-
ity does not deserve death. We
can not legally treat our own
animals this way, so why are we
allowing this to a human being?

Watch out for
beef, dairy
Editor:
Last week's Congressional
hearing on the use of steroids in


major league baseball called
public attention to an epidemic
of substance abuse by more
than 500,000 young American
athletes.
Anabolic steroids, such as
testosterone, progesterone,
estradiol, zeranol, and other
growth hormones, promote
muscle growth and strength.
However, prolonged use has
been implicated in breast,
prostate, and testicular cancer,
heart disease, sexual and repro-
ductive disorders, immunodefi-
ciencies, and liver damage, as
well as abnormal growth and
premature sexual development
in young girls.
Tragically, all American con-
sumers of beef and most milk
drinkers are exposed to these
hazards. Growth hormones are
administered to 90 percent of
United States and Canadian
beef cattle and 25 percent of
dairy cows to promote weight
gain and milk production.
Consequently, the European
Union has banned imports of
United States and Canadian
beef since 1989, sparking a
nasty trade war.' -- I I.
American consumers who
are not into anabolic steroids
will be well advised to stay
away from beef and dairy prod-
ucts.

Keeping a
watchful eye on
government
Editor:
This letter is being written to
explain further because of a let-
ter of complaint on my letter
regarding Medicare.
In case you did not know, all
of these outsources that handle
any money from out of the fed-
eral government are under fed-
eral government contracts.
And the federal government
agency that contracted that par-
ticular outsource is responsible
for seeing the contractor carries
out their duties according to the
laws governing that contract.
The audits that were made on
these contracts where the $21.7
million in fraud was not found
by audits from the federal gov-
ernment agency looking out for
the contract but audits from the
"Citizens Against Government
Waste."
CAGW has been around for
years begging Congress to care
about the taxpayers money and
it was the Bush Administration
that said improper payments a
top priority and that is not only
in Medicare, but also all gov-
ernment contracts.
I worked in 1973 for four
months under government con-
tract ... and I worked in the
auditing department of the
company that got the contract. I
was one of the 16 employees
who worked under that contract
to blow the whistle ... 16 sepa-
rate investigations ... millions

Death by


starvation
Let me warn you right off.
This is not a funny or happy
column this week. I gave
thought about writing in such a
vein, but I can't work up to it. If
you don't want to read a rant,
you might want to switch to the
funnies this week. I'll probably
be back to my weird self next
week.
The reason I have such a
problem this week? It can be
summed up in a name you have
probably heard a lot by now:
Terri Schiavo.
As I type at the moment, this
woman is being starved to
death with the blessing of the
courts, her husband, and appar-
ently a lot of Americans. Last I
heard the parents are trying yet
again to get a court to reinsert
their daughter's feeding tube so
that the case can be reviewed
again. To be honest, given the
trend I have seen, I am not that
hopeful of their chances.
It is possible that by the time
this column appears Terri will
be dead. She will have gone
without nourishment for over a
,week. Each day that passes
lessens her chances of survival.
The case raises troubling
issues about the role of govern-
ment, life and death, and how
much power a spouse should
have in the absence of a living
will. If anything good has come
of it, people now understand
the importance of living wills.
Had Terri left some record of
her wishes, this case would
probably not have the publicity
it does.
I have tried to see this from
the view of those who think
this woman should be starved
to death. I have listened to their
arguments. I have even tried to
give Michael Schiavo the bene-
fit of the doubt. Call me imper-
fect, but I can't quite do it. -
I admit that a lot of my opin-
ion of this case is based on the
fact that Michael Schiavo does
not strike me as credible. His
alleged behavior and the fact
that he has already moved on
with a new family raises ques-
tions in my mind to his motiva-
tion and whose interests he is
most representing Terri's or
his own. Is he truly carrying out
his wife's wishes? Or is he
operating on what is conven-
ient for him?
Does this mean that Terri's
parents are paragons of virtue?
Frankly, I don't know her par-
ents. I have an easier time
understanding their point of
view though what parent can't
feel some empathy for them?
Their daughter is dying before
their eyes and they are unable
to do anything. How could they
be anything else but grief-
stricken?
Why does this story trouble
me so much? I think it is
because we are treating a
human being in a way we
wouldn't treat an animal. If we
starved someone on Death
Row, we would be accused of
cruel and unusual punishment.
I keep hearing on the news how
peaceful death by starvation is -
if it's such a humane way to kill
someone, why don't we allow
people to treat unwanted pets
that way? Why isn't it an
option in those states that
employ the death penalty?
This is not turning off a
machine that causes her heart
to beat or her lungs to inflate.
This is a denial of a basic need
food and water. This is not
allowing God to work this is
actively ending a life. No, we
are not putting a pillow over
her face. We are not giving her
a lethal injection. This is mur-
der by omission not doing
something that should be done.
I fear for us as a people if we

Some say that by removing

Now choose life, so that you

that you may love the Lord

and hold fast to him."'
(Deuteronomy 30: 19-20a,
NIV)
It all harkens back to how we
regard life. Is it precious a
sacred gift and trust given to us
by our Creator? If we believe it
is, then we must leave the time
of death to the One who holds
each of our life's breath in his

outcome?
I found out when blowing the

by your elected officials in your

Let's g
America was developed by
the railroads. Before the rail-
roads came into existence, the
only way across country was by
horseback or on a horse drawn
wagon. Now that we have air-
planes and the interstate high-
way system, the railroads are an
obsolete form of transportation,
right?
Wrong! As has been proven
in many other countries, the
railroads can provide fast serv-
ice while using less fuel than
any other mode of land trans-
portation. In these days where
we are being held hostage by
the demands of OPEC, the
amount of fuel used is impor-
tant.
As to speed, while the rail-
roads are mostly held to a 79
mph speed restriction, they can
still provide service equal to or
better than airlines in the under
200 mile trip range. How is this
possible? Trains, in almost all
cases, leave from and arrive
downtown where you don't
have the delay of the time
involved in getting to and from
the airport. Add the time for this
transportation, plus- waiting


into an area to help employ peo-
ple.
I did not investigate all over
the United States, just in a six-
county area under government
contract getting money from the
federal government, because it
was a depressed area.
People came to me with the
evidence after they took it to
their Congressmen and I would
write to the elected officials and
tell them, you had concerned
citizens giving proof of wrong
doing in government money
under contracts coming into the
our depressed area, and you
would not lift a finger, well I


will. I had a knack when getting
it out into the open I would
write one letter and send to 15
different people in various gov-
ernment agencies that dealt
with what I had been given.
The reason, it never went in
file 13.
As I listed on all the letters,
every place the letter was sent
to the governor of my state, the
president of United States, all
of my representative and sena-
tors and in case you do not
know every agency has its own
investigative powers, received
the original letter.
I do know government, I


spent 20 years finding out about
our government and spending
my husband's hard earned
money and in that time I got a
lot of information from theses
same government employees
who I was to be criticizing, as
they would have lost their job if
it was ever found out.
Wake up and smell the roses.
I think the letter was written
because President George Bush
was given credit. If it wasn't,
the letter would have congratu-
lations thanking God there is a
CAGW watching out for the
taxpayers money.

Years ago, you
could travel almost
anywhere in the
country by train. Look at
Amtrak's route map. You will
find many major cities with no
train service. Amtrak is strug-
gling to survive while being
underfunded by our govern-
ment. They have reduced the
number of trains between cities,
lowering the frequency to once
a day or less in many parts of
the country. This lack of fre-
quency has reduced the number
of potential riders, wanting to
go on their schedule, not
Amtrak's .
If the train uses less fuel, then
why does a train ticket cost the
same or more than an airplane
ticket? Blame this on a system
of government giveaways. The
railroads had to build the track
and stations, and after that they
are taxed on the property.

Airplanes arrive at a
terminal built and
NIST maintained with your
taxes. The airline has
Koster to pay a user fee for
- space in the terminal
and for the use of the
runway. These
charges do not cover the
expenses, so the rest is paid for
by the government. Who con-
trols the airspace? Traffic con-
trollers, again paid for by the
government.
Amtrak has tried for 34 years
to provide good service, but
compared to the time before
Amtrak, when the railroads pro-
vided the service, Amtrak has
failed miserably. If properly
funded, we probably could have
really good passenger train
service. You may have noticed
that many countries have far
better train service than we
have here in the United States.
They provide faster, quieter
trains with more frequent serv-
ice.
There is another solution.
Give the passenger service back


to the railroads with one impor-
tant change. Reduce the taxes to
the railroad proportional to the
number of passenger miles trav-
eled. This could encourage
more frequent service, to attract
passengers back from other
modes of transportation. This
would also allow the railroad to
reduce fares, to take advantage
of the fuel saving that rail trans-
portation offers.
Why should the government
give up this revenue? First of
all, to reduce the need for new
and bigger airports. Second, to
provide an alternate form of
transportation to those who can-
not fly, possibly due.to health
reasons. Third, in smaller areas
which do not have airports, to
provide basic transportation
without having to drive
between cities and towns. This
could reduce the need for addi-
tional highways and the cost of
construction.

Last-inning double propels


Hardee to win over Sebring

Hardee's Robby Abbott dives safely into third base Friday night at
Firemen's Field.


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING By the seventh
inning, just about everyone in
the park was resigned to the fact
that they were going to see an
extra-inning affair Friday night'
at Firemen's Field.
Hardee and Sebring had
swung their own set of blows
inning by inning, twice tying
the game, all leading to the 5-5
score in the final inning.
Robbie Abbott's base-clear-
ing double changed all that,
however, propelling Hardee to a
8-5 win over Sebring. It was
Abbott's second bases-loaded
double of the evening, all part


of a 2-for-3, five RBI night.
Hardee head coach Steve
Rewis has now won both meet-
ings against his father's Sebring
team, dating back to their 5-4
preseason win, despite the
Wildcats leaving 14 runners on
base Friday night
"We're pretty comfortable in
the fact that we know them and
they know us," Hardee's Rewis
said about Sebring. "They look
at us and say 'Play your best
ball' and we look at them and
say 'Hey, play your best ball.'
"But I think we're catching
up to them. The first couple
times we beat them, I was
thinking they were a lot better


After a disappointing draft day last year, Avon Park's Matt Mercurio is
hoping an extra year at Florida Southern will make his pro career




Worth the wait


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor

Much longer than he was hoping. ,
After completing his third stellar season as an
infielder for the Florida Southern College
Moccasins, Mercurio had been told by people who
would know that he would not last past the 10th round
in Major League Baseball's amateur draft, and he was
expecting a phone call pretty early on the first day.
The first 10 rounds came ... and went with no
phone call
It wasn't tiniil the I9th round th.atl Merclirio. j ( ilr-
'"ii A^h',Mi-AThCouThiF'v~iivtwo- t~ime X0-rTe ,
selection while pla ing tor the Avon Park Red3e ie\is,
was finally taken by the Baltimore Orioles, not nearly
high enough to keep him from returning to Lakeland
for his senior year.
Now, as he enters the home stretch of his final col-
legiate season, Mercurio can look back on that draft
day and think maybe the phone remaining silent for so
long was a sign he was meant to spend one more year
in college, and that the patience he's shown is going
to pay off in a big way.
"I'm having a great time, enjoying the group of
guys we have and making another run at the national
title," Mercurio said. "I'm going to graduate in the
spring and that was one of the deciding factors after I
had the opportunity to sign with the Orioles'in the
19th round. I decided it was best to stick it out one
more year and graduate and make another run for the
national championship with these guys."
In fact, the whole four-year college experience has
been a worthwhile one for Mercurio, who entered the
weekend third on the team in average (.340) and tied
for first in both RBIs (25) and home runs (five), as the
Moccasins (22-4) try to regain the No. 1 ranking they
lost last week.
"The only way you get better is by playing, and I
know that I could have made the jump from high
school to the pros, but it's going to be a lot easier to
go into pro ball this next year," he said.
Mercurio has put together a superb resume at
Florida Southern, the kind that should translate into a
lot of interest on draft day. He's currently second all-

WAIT
Continued from 1B
for the Moccasins, a decision that has provided
him with some opportunities he wouldn't have
had if he had gone straight to the pros.
"I got to go to the Cape Cod League and play
there, and I wouldn't have been able to do that if
I'd signed right out of high school," he said. "I
met a great girl that I'm still dating and just a lot
of things have happened that if I would have
signed out of high school wouldn't have hap-
pened, so I definitely think I made the right
choice and things are going to work out."
Despite the disappointment of last year's draft
day, the 19th-round selection still represented a
doubling of Mercurio's draft status thanks to his
three years of college experience, which include
a trip to the Division II World Series as a fresh-
man and appearances in the region finals each of
the last two seasons.
Mercurio's success in college should translate
into a higher pick and the kind of signing bonus
he's been looking for, and he freely admits that
if he'd been drafted high right out of high
school, he would have jumped at the chance to
fulfill his lifelong goal of being a pro baseball
player.
But he also said that he'd likely advise a
younger player who was drafted in the late
rounds to take the college route if possible.
"The majority of the time, the round tells you
the kind of money you're going to get. There are
exceptions. There's been guys that have been
drafted late that have gotten a lot of money, and
if I had gotten the money right out of high
school, then there would have been no question.
"But the average guy getting drafted in (a
low) round and they're going to give you the
slop money, then (college is) no question. You
can increase your value as a player, which I
have, and you get an education."
While one college degree, much less three,
opens plenty of doors in the real world,
Mercurio is hoping it's a long time before he has
to worry about putting his to use.
"First off, I don't see myself not making it to
the big leagues," he said. "That's something I've
wanted and been working for my whole life, so
I don't see myself not making it there."
Looking back on last year's draft, Mercurio
has taken the attitude that maybe it was just
meant to be that he stayed at Florida Southern.
Maybe the Mocs will make it back to the World
Series this year and win their ninth national
championship. Maybe there was a reason that he

career is over.

went back to finish up those three degrees.
Or, maybe the extra year of college play will
be the difference that gets him to the place he's
been dreaming of his entire life the major
leagues.
"That's what I try to take out of it," he said.
"At first, I was disappointed because I had high-
er expectations than that, but at the same time, I
took it as a positive thing. I know I've definitely
improved as a player.
"I'm working hard every day to get better as a
baseball player and I know things are going to
work out the way that they're supposed to."
With the resume he's put together at Florida
Southern, it will be no surprise if the phone
rings fairly early this June 7, and his patience
and hard work are rewarded.

pitch with one out to start the
inning and Brutus and Aaron

bases. Abbott quickly unloaded
them with a two-run double to
center and Nick Benevides

base throwing error to put
Sebring on top 2-0.


The Streaks finally tied the
game when the first two batters,
of the fifth came in to score.
Ryan Williams reached with a
walk and a muffed double play
put Chris Welborn on. Two bat-
ters later, Ryan Williams scam-
pered home on a passed ball
and a bases-loaded walk to Colt
Williams plated pinch runner
Blake Sanders.
That score held true until
Abbott arrived to the plate with
the bases juiced with two outs.
Earlier in the inning, A.C.
Wilson gunned down a poten-
tial Hardee score ohi a relay fol-
lowing a Shumard double to the
wall.
But the Wildcats loaded the
bases with two ensuing walks
and Abbot's smash brought in
Shumard, Brutus and Himrod.

PANTHERS
Continued from 1B
"It's pretty swollen, but not
swollen enough to (stop) the
round-tripper," Hitt said.
Marcos Causey went 2-for-2
and Dwayne Bailey 3-for-3 in
the opener, while Jesse Litsch
continued his torrid pace, going
3-for-4 with a home run and
two doubles after hitting for the
cycle Thursday.
Rafael Sierra had a three-run
homer and an RBI double for
the only multi-hit performance
in the capper, which began
when Morton starter Carlos
Ayala (0-1) walked the first five
batters to spark a seven-run first
inning.
The key for his batters, Hitt
said, is the ability to alter their
approach to fit whatever type of
arm is thrown their way.
"One of things we didn't do


well at Miami-Dade was make
adjustments on their guys," the
coach said, referring to two
losses in which SFCC scored a
total of two runs last week.
"One of things we did well the
last three days was make adjust-
ments.
"We saw every different kind
of guy the last three days ... we
saw left-handed soft guys, we
saw right-handed soft guys, we
saw guys who couldn't throw
any strikes, we saw pretty good
velocity arms from Seminole,
and we saw guys with a good
breaking ball (Thursday)."
Hitt also liked what he saw
from his pitchers Friday,
including second game starter
Chris Mester (4-1), who gave
up a run and three hits in four
innings to get the win, and
reliever Bruce Beumel, who
struck out all three batters he
faced:


Though Polk did not sparkle,
giving up four earned runs and
eight hits in five innings, his
warmup was disrupted by the
late arrival of Morton (0-8),
which delayed the start time by
about 15 minutes.
More pressing, though, is the
imminent resumption of
Southern Conference play, set
for Tuesday against at home
against Indian River (17-12, 2-
4).
"We're hoping our guys real-
ize what's at stake here in the
next 13 games," said Hitt, set
on- improving his team's 2-5
conference mark. "There's a ton
of stuff up for grabs, and we're
right in the thick of playing for
all that stuff.
"If it means that much to
them, and it means enough to
them, and they give their best
effort everyday, we'll have a
shot."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Let the Son

shine through
My parents have. both
experienced the gradual film
of cataracts obscuring their
vision.
"It blinds you," said my
mom, as I inquired about
what it's like.
The lens of the eye
becomes opaque and doesn't
allow the light to pass
through.
For a short time after
Christ's resurrection from the
dead, the disciples had
cataracts covering the eyes of
their souls and spirits. They
listened in disbelief to the
reports of the women, who
had found the tomb empty;
and, had heard the declara-
tion of the angel.
"Why do you look for the
living among the dead? He is
not here; he has risen!
Remember how he told you,
while he was still with you in
Galilee: 'The Son of Man
must be delivered into the
hands of sinful men, be cru-
cified and on the third day be
raised again.'"
They even went and
checked for themselves. Still
they shook their heads in a
mixture of disbelief and
wondering. They couldn't
seem to throw offthe shroud
under which they had been
mourning.
What obscures our vision
from seeing the risen Lord?
Is it the filmy covering of
self-sufficiency? Is it the
haze of good works, believ-
ing if we do enough good
deeds we are sure to get into
heaven? Or is our memory
cloudy and vague concerning
the gospel we learned long
ago, but didn't take to heart?
It's amazing how the grad-
ual progres-ion of "cataracts"
of the soul will eventually
blind us to the truth. But, it's
not an incurable condition.
My parents listened to the
doctor's diagnosis and took it
to heart, both agreeing to
have the necessary surgery to
remove the film and have
new lenses implanted. It took
faith and a desire to see
clearly not remaining hin-
dered by the effects of the
condition. Consequently, as
a result of their decision, the
light could shine through
once again and they received
new vision.
It's much the same spiritu-
ally. We must agree with the
Great Physician's diagnosis
that the disease of sin is only
curable through the remedy
prescribed in Scripture:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and you will,be
saved." (Acts 16: 31,
NKJV)
This belief comes as a
result of acknowledging that
we are sinners and need a
Savior. God provided His
Son to bear that sin in our
place. When we receive
Christ, he indwells us by his
Spirit and gives us the right
to become his children.
By faith, we're born again
and the cloud that blinded
our spiritual eyes from the
truth is removed. We have
new vision.
That's what Easter Sunday
is all about. It's the day we
celebrate our Lord's resurrec-
tion a miraculous feat he
accomplished so that we, like
the blind man, can say, "One
thing I know: that though I
was blind, now I see." (John
9: 25b, NKJV)
Taking the gospel message
to heart removes the blind-
ers. At last, the Son can shine
through. Selah.

S hat the
wind of
SK God
started,
the Breath of God is continu-
ing with a gentle whisper
revival.
Despite the seeming handi-
cap of First Baptist Church's
fellowship hall having been
destroyed by the winds of
Hurricane Jeanne, the student
ministry continues to thrive.
Even though the youth are
forced to meet outside in the
parking lot.
Cars whiz by. The wind
blows down the screen on
which the slides are flashed.
Birds twitter. Airplanes fly
overhead. And the occasional
street person will join the
group.
Still, student ministry direc-
tor Scott Sjoblom is able to
capture the attention of these
young people, whose hearts are
on fire for Jesus Christ.
At 6 p.m. every Wednesday,
middle and high school stu-
dents begin to trickle in. The
boys play basketball, while the
girls giggle and chatter.
"Bring them in! Bring them
in! Bring them in! Bring them
in!" chimed Sjoblom as he cor-
rals the youth, scattered in the
parking lot. Inclement weather
that day required them to meet
in the cramped quarters of the
youth room that can't contain
everyone. However, since it
was week of the 12 Hours of
Sebring Race, fewer than the

"The last thing I need is to /
be under tornado watch with

joked.
After prayer and announce-
ments the praise-and-worship
guitar duo played songs with
such lyrics as "There must be"
more than this 0 Breath of
God, come breathe within" and
"I will lift my voice." Earnest
faces with eyes closed sent
songs of prayer to God. Some
smiled. Some were serious.
Then the screen with the

"Isn'it fun to be back at the

Scott Sjoblom and his students look forward to the completion of
the 750-capacity Family Life and Outreach Center.
The target date for finishing is late April or early May. They
tried meeting in the Sebring Middle School Commons, but the
band needed the area for practice.
Some of the students said they liked meeting outside. 'It's more
fun," said Logan Dambeck, 12, of Sebring Middle School. "Inside
it's more cramped."
Matthew Year agreed. '"There's more breathing room (outside)."
Mariana Tolosa, 14 of Hill-Gustat Middle School also said she
preferred the great outdoors. "It feels good to be outside. It feels
peaceful."
Alli Zeegers. 14, of Hill-Gustat agreed. "It makes you feel clos-

Receptionists leave a lasting impression


* News-Sun correspondent Pauline Au Yang provides eti-
quette tips for readers on the last Sunday of each month in
the Lifestyle section.
By PAULINE AU YANG
News-Sun correspondent
A receptionist, sometimes referred to as an informa-
tion manager, is the official greeter of any organization.
This personlis the first person a client comes in contact
with. A receptionist has tremendous power and can
build or destroy a company merely by the attitudes dis-
played toward clients and staff.
A receptionist must give respect, and be treated
respectfully by other co-workers regardless of the posi-
tion he or she holds within that organization. Having
knowledge and practice of etiquette is of importance
because in numerous situations, a second chance may
not be possible. It takes five seconds to make a good
first impression.
One expert said, "Most behavior perceived as disre-
spectful, discourteous or abrasive is unintentional and
could have been avoided by practicing good manners
or etiquette."
Being a receptionist is an important task, this indi-
vidual has to have a consistent demeanor. It's their job
to strive to make the people around them feel comfort-
able and valued ... not intimidated. The job of the
receptionist is multi-faceted, they have to be poised,
polished, polite and professional.
A receptionist is not merely the individual who


Servi

Up


answers the phone, gives direction and makes appoint-
ments, they are an integral part of the foundation of any
organization. Such individuals must realize that what-
ever they do is a reflection of the company or organi-
zation they represents.

Here are some etiquette pointers for human resource
people.
How many times have you applied for an advertised
vacant position, knowing full well that you meet the
required qualification yet received no acknowledg-
ment? How many times have you gone on interviews
and told that you will hear from the human resources
department within a couple of days and did not? Do


you find the department's negligent to be unprofes-
sional?
The negligence of the department to respond as
promised shows a lack of credibility on the part of the,
company/organization. The human resources depart-
ment does not have to have multiple employees. Forg
small company that department could be a drawer. TM
head of the department also could recruit the assistance,
of other members of staff to assist in responding to cor7
respondence. Teamwork does not necessarily mean,
title, but the success of a company.
In responding to the applicant or interviewee, i
simply a letter which states: "Thanks for your applied
tion for the position advertised. The position has beetf
filled. Your application will be kept on file, we wilt
notify you should a similar position becomes avai
able."

Pauline Au yang has been an etiquette advisor for
Faith Pentecostal Youth Enrichment program, Visio*s

Blackaestetics Institute and YDC 2001 and has

Books appeal to women who wear many hats


When I was growing up, a
woman never went anyplace
special without a hat. There was
a hat or two for church, a hat for
going downtown, a new hat for
weddings and Easter, and the
obligatory navy or black hat for
funerals. Putting on your hat
meant you were fully prepared
for the occasion.
Working at Sebring Library
has meant acquiring a closet
full of hats there's my recep-
tionist hat, my bookkeeper's
hat, my telephone hat, my
delivery hat, my hard hat for
opening and toting all those
boxes of, library materials and
supplies, my hurricane feeding
line hat, and even my speaker's
hat. Once in a while, I have to
go hat in hand to ask for help,
especially when my computer is
telling me "human error again".
I'm told that the Red Hat
Society was formed to give
women a group in which to
confidently express themselves
and have fun. That being so,
then any member of a Red Hat
Society would feel right at
home in our Heartland Library
Cooperative libraries in
Highlands, DeSoto; Hardee and

Confidence is assured when


you acquire a library
card because it opens
the doors to so many
interesting and fun
areas of life.
What types of
books would a red hat
woman find informa-
tive and most helpful
at our libraries? I
liked these titles: LIBRAI
"Prevention's -
Ultimate Guide to Ca\
Women's Health and Hes
Wellness," the -
Christiane Northrup
book "Women's Bodies,
Women's Wisdom" and the
Bonnie Rubin book "Fifty on
Fifty: Wisdom, Inspiration and
Reflections on Women's Lives
Well Lived." How about check-
ing out "Age Erasers for
Women: Actions You Can Take
Right Now to Look Younger
and Feel Great."
Here's a problem you'd prob-
ably keep under your hat -
"The Truth About Women's
Hair Loss." One title no
thoughtful woman should leave
on our shelves is the Julie
Calligaro book "Arranging
Your Financial and Legal
Affairs: A Step by Step Guide
to Getting Your Affairs in


Order."
.- Author M. C.
Beaton has surely
woman with her
Agatha Raisin mys-
b tery series. A retired
public relations exec-
9 utive, Agatha is
ready for some
v LINES romance and excite-
ment in her life. The
>lyn problem is, Agatha
link has moved to a typi-
-- cal small English vil-
lage and her city atti-
tudes and drive aren't what the
locals are used to. You'll laugh
out loud at her sometimes
impetuous, always let-me-fix-it
personality and the trouble it
gets her into, when you check
out the series Agatha Raisin and
"The Potted Gardener," "The
Vicious Vet" or "The Quiche of
Death."
I'm an Elizabeth Peters fan.
She's given us a Victorian red
hat woman in her Egyptian
series, spiked with romance,
mystery archaeology and a dol-
lop of sly humor. Starring the
indomitable Amelia Peabody
and her family's inevitable
involvements with stolen treas-
ure, criminals, fallen women,


and unwashed locals, the series
always includes the background
machinations of the elusive
Master Criminal Sethos. The
Peters books are authentic as to
the Victorian Age and the role
the British played in the archae-
ological discoveries in Egypt,
but there's only one Amelia
Peabody. You will fall in love
with her.
Carol Ann O'Marie is a nun,
retired from elementary school
teaching, a co-founder of a
homeless women's shelter, and
a mystery writer. This modem-
day red hat woman has written
seven Sister Mary Helen mys-
teries so far, and all her book
royalties go to Miss O'Marie's
Catholic order for charitable
work.
People aren't the only mad
hatters. We even have "The Cat
in the Hat."

Florida yards conserve rainfall, attract wildlife


In recent weeks, we have
been discussing the Florida
Yard program and the nine prin-
ciples for making a Florida
yard.
Last week, we stopped with
number six. Today, we will con-
tinue, starting with number
seven reducing storm water
runoff.
One of the basic concepts of
a Florida Yard is that yards soak
up rain. Rainfall is an excellent
source of water for your land-
scape, and reducing runoff will
protect waterways.
If the roof of your home has
rain gutters, make sure the
downspouts are aimed at a
porous surface so the water can
soak into the soil. For these
areas, be sure to choose plants
that can adapt to having more
water, and be sure water doesn't
collect next to buildings.
Rain barrels and cisterns are
ancient technologies, but they
are making a comeback because
water shortages are prompting
homeowners to use the rain that
falls on their property. Large,


plastic rain barrels
are available at home
and garden stores. -
Attract wildlife to
your yard. Florida
has the third most I:
diverse wildlife pop-
ulation of any state in
the nation. But rapid
growth of human
populations is replac- GCR
ing native wildlife
habitat with urban SF
development.
A Florida yard High
provides a habitat for County
wildlife by increas- Gar
ing biodiversity and
creating landscaped islands and
natural vegetative corridors that
connect bordering properties.
Animals use these corridors to
travel from one natural area to
another, benefiting wildlife on a
larger, neighborhood scale.
Food should be provided in
the form of plants that bear
seed, fruit, foliage or flowers
that you are willing to have
consumed by birds, caterpillars
and butterflies. The sound of

running water will
attract wildlife to
;'" your yard.
Birds are attracted
to planted areas that
include a tree canopy,
smaller understory
., trees and shrubs, and
grasses or flowers,
particularly those that
ING are allowed to go to
seed on occasion.
ON Caterpillars are the
- larval form of butter-
inds flies and moths. Each
Master. species of butterfly
ners lays its eggs on a pre-
"- ferred species of plant.
This also means managing
your pets. Pets that harass
wildlife will frustrate any
efforts you make toward attract-
ing it. This is especially true for
house cats allowed to roam in
the back yard.
Finally, protect the water-
front. Waterfront property own-
ers have firsthand knowledge of
the special contributions that

lagoons add to our quality of

GOD
Continued from 1C
And I don't mean to scare
you ladies, but there have been
rodents spotted running along
the cords."
That week the students were
wrapping up the final week for
the 40 Days of Purpose cam-
paign that uses the bestselling
book by Rick Warren, "The
Purpose Driven Life."
"We realize that along this
journey that we were made for a
mission. That you and I were
called to be active in this
world," Sjoblom said.
The focus that week was on
evangelism. "Evangelism is
sharing with someone the Good
News of Jesus," Sjoblom said.
He told the Bible story of the
woman who, at the table of a
Pharisee, anointed Jesus with
expensive perfume and kissed
and wiped his feet with her hair.
The Pharisees and disciples
were indignant over such an
extravagant display of love.
Sometimes when people
serve God it won't make sense
to others. It also requires a
degree of humility, Sjoblom
said.
"When you are willing to sell
yourself out to Jesus, it (how
others perceive you) doesn't
matter."
Sjoblom also told the story of
the woman who shared the
gospel with the man who terror-
ized Atlanta recently. She had
just finished the 38th chapter of
the "Purpose Driven Life."
She didn't call 911. She
called upon the Lord, Sjoblom
said. "This dude kicked in her
door and she told him about
Jesus. She told him about Jesus
and amazing things happened.
"The biggest thing we can do
is to show Jesus to people who
are unlovable."
The youth director explained
the reason for evangelism. "I
was struck by something (the
Rev. Dr.) Jim Henry said, 'If
you had the cure for cancer
would you keep it to yourself?'
Yet, many of you have been
coming for years and you
haven't shared your faith with
others."
Sjoblom continued, "There
are 7,500 middle school and

so many things that make
you lose your focus," said
Jessie Tomblin, 14, also of Hill-
Gustat.

he prays for no rain on

tions, it's worked. The first time
was during the Florida

High school students attend services at First Baptist Church in Sebring.


high school students in
Highlands County. My goal (in
the fall of this year) is to reach
every teenager. HP + CC = MI.
High Potency Plus Close
Contact Equals Maximum
Impact."
The campaign is called
Outbreak 7,500. The goal is, by
the end of the next school year,
for every middle and high
school student to hear the
gospel message through their
friends. And the gospel mes-
sage is this: That Jesus loves us
so much he hung on a cross for
our sins and was resurrected on
Easter.
"I think overnight God is
going to double the size of this
youth group. And it's going to
happen, because you (already)
have been doing it."

Shared vision
The students shared what
they thought about the impact
of revival, meeting outside and
Sjoblom's vision.
Samantha Moore, 16, of
Sebring High School said the


dance would be low anyway.
"Scott's fabulous at the youth
level because he really relates
to the kids," said John Snyder,
one of the parents who helps.
"You have the jocks and you
have the bookworms and they
watch out for each other,
because they're all in the same
boat."
Snyder also praised the sen-
ior pastor for his encourage-
ment of the youth program. "It
takes a pastor to lead a program
and Dr. Henry is really for the
kids."
Sjoblom added, "The good


fulfilling the goals of Outbreak
7,500 is doable, "Definitely. It's
like a chain. If we get our
friends, they'll get their friends
and they'll get their friends."
It's already started, said
Morgan Taylor, 17, also of
SHS. She added she and other
teenagers sense the wind of
revival among young people,
not only in Sebring First Baptist
but in youth groups across
Highlands County. "I think it's
awesome to see. Because our
youth group and other youth
groups have grown, not only in
numbers, but in maturity."
At First Baptist of Sebring at
least 16 baptisms have or will
occur among the students.
Today on Easter the Rev. Dr.
James Henry will baptize at
least seven of them.
Sjoblom said, "About a year-
and-a-half ago, we (youth min-
isters and Youth for Christ in
Highlands County) have been
feeling the wind of revival
among the youth. We're finally
beginning to, see some of the
work the Lord has been doing


thing I've learned is that, work-
ing with students, is that they're
flexible. We've been able to
keep the ship from sinking. In
fact we've added to the num-
bers."

in the last five years."
Often in churches it's an "us
vs. them" mentality. However
at First Baptist, a broad range of
ages is reaching out to one
another. Retired missionaries
and senior adults pray for the
students. As for those who help
out with the students, their ages
range from 18 to their 50s.
"I don't think our church
looks at the students as the
future of the church, but the
church itself. It's 1 Timothy
4:12," where Paul tells the
young pastor to -lead by exam-
ple and not let his congregation
look down upon him because of
his youthfulness.

So do blessings.

Three Dog Night will be playing some of its classic hits, like 'Try a Little Tenderness' and 'Joy to the World' at a benefit concert at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 25, at the South Florida Community College Auditorium in Avon Park. Proceeds from the fund-raiser will be used to make
improvements to the auditorium.


Three Dog Night giving benefit concert in June


This Easter, why not give someone
special the gift of perspective a
heavenly approach to everyday living -
through Jan Merop's book, Pause... &
Consider, Keeping in step with life
while in tune with heaven ~ Selah?

Tickets go on sale Monday for

performance by classic rock band


AVON PARK "Joy to the
World," "Try A Little
Tenderness," and "Mama Told
Me (Not to Come)" are only
three of the 21 hit single records
and 12 consecutive gold albums
the pop band, Three Dog Night,
scored from 1969-75.
The band is coming to the
South Florida Community
College Auditorium for a bene-
fit concert at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, June 25.


"This performance has been
scheduled to provide a special
fund that will be designated for
SFCC Auditorium improve-
ments and renovation," said
Doug Andrews, dean of
Cultural Programs.
According to Andrews, the
two most urgent needs for the
auditorium are the expansion of
the lobby area and increasing
the fly space above the stage.
Increasing the fly space would


accommodate the height of
scenery for larger musical pro-
duction, which requires raising
the roof.
"The other thing that this
concert will accomplish is pro-
vide the community with an
opportunity to see a group or
performer who wouldn't nor-
mally be presented as part of
our artist, matinee, chamber or
jazz series," said Andrews.
Sponsorships are available.
For a donation of $1,000, spon-
sors receive four tickets, pro-
gram recognition, and an invita-
tion to a reception. To sponsor


the Three Dog Night concert,
call Andrews at 784-7177.
Tickets will go on sale to the
general public on Monday.
Tickets prices are $20, $25,
$30, and $35.
"We hope to draw people
from surrounding communities,
not only the tri-county district
that we serve, but from the
Three Dog Night fan base from
outside our service district,"
said Andrews.
For tickets, call the SFCC
Box Office on weekdays from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 453-
6661, ext. 7178.
