Community Child Development


Center ready for prekindergarten


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK There are
only two Gold Seal prekinder-
garten programs in Highlands
County. One is the Redlands
Christian Migrant
Association's program, the
other is the Avon Park
Community Child
Development Center.
To become a Gold Seal
school a provider has to meet
standards which are signifi-,
cantly higher than those need-
ed for basic certification. For
example, they are already eli-
gible for the Voluntary
Prekindergarten program.
At the Community- Child
Development Center, the staff
use the "High Scope" curricu-
lum, which is research based
and backed by longitudinal
studies.
The program relies on activ-
ity centers, each of which
challenges a student in a dif-
ferent way.
The center's executive
director, Velma Jackson, who
has 24 years of early child-
hood education experience,
explained that children are
encouraged to plan their day's
activities with their teachers,
and to then discuss what they
did, and what happened as a
result.


Puzzles, table toys, art
materials are readily at hand,
and children are allowed to
make their own decisions,
within certain parameters.
Doors have been taken off
their hinges, so students can
move freely between rooms
and choose the center most
interesting to them,
There are many activity
centers: Music and movement,
table toys, science and math,
art, language, blocks and
housekeeping.
The curriculum is intention-
ally loose, designed to fit the.
child, rather than be forced on
him or her.
Teachers observe and


record the children's progress
and behavior on a regular
basis. The object, Jackson
said, is to notice when a child
isn't developing normally and
red flag problems early. The
richer the detail, the more use-
ful the information.
Jackson has some concerns
about the logistics of the pro-
gram, which she thinks is
highly needed.
If the students in the free
program are restricted to a
three hour day, she isn't sure
how much constructive work
can be squeezed into that
amount of time. After all, she
points out, just moving chil-

Madison Mosley dies


in St. Petersburg


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Many
longtime workers at South
Florida Community College
have joined residents of the
city of Avon Park in mourn-
ing the death of Dr. Madison
M. Mosley Jr.
Mosley, the former director.
of the SFCC Library and a
former Avon Park City
Councilman, died March 29
in St. Petersburg at the age of
55.
He was remembered by
former co-workers and stu-
dents alike as a hard worker.
"He was a wonderful man
and he made an impact on us
ail. He had a good nature and
a kind spirit," said Michelle
Roberts who was the dean of
applied sciences during
Mosley's tenure at the school.
Described by Roberts as


"very much an advocate of
the resource system," Mosley
also was in charge of the
library operation when it
moved from its former loca-
tion in Building A to the
media center where it resides
to this day.
"They had a very small col-
lection, like in a classroom,"
Roberts said. "'And the new
facility gave the students a lot
more access to the materials."
During his time as director
of the SFCC Library, Mosley
also carried positions in two
statewide library committees
and was a president of the
South Ridge Toastmasters
Club. He also sat on a
statewide planning council
for developmental disabili-
ties.

Prior to Pope John Paul, II's
death on Saturday afternoon,
Catholics across Highlands
County responded at Saturday
Mass.
There were m6re people than
usual at the morning services in
Our Lady of Grace Catholic
Church in Avon Park.
"I was there and the church
was half full, which is unusual
for a daily Mass," Justine
Devlin of Avon Park said.
While at the services, Devlin
said she was struck with the
idea that the pontiff was
instructing the church even in
his death.
"God seemed to say to rme
'Don't be sad for this man,
praise the Father for giving this
great gift to our world.'
Because that's how I feel. I feel
the pope was a great gift, espe-
cially for our time," she said.
Usually there is no Mass on
Saturday, however this was a
Mass for First Saturday which
traditionally is observed in the
church.
On Friday, there was no large
outpouring of local Catholics

Firefighters, city council clash over pension discussion


By BARRY FOSTER

AVON PARK It appears
one way or the other Avon Park
may someday be left without a
fire department.
International Association of
Fire Fighters Local 3132
President Warren West warned
city council members unless
they upped the ante and paid
firefighters more, many would
leave and go in search of green-
er pastures.
"We'll become a training
ground," he said. "We have a lot
'of young guys and they see that
they can make a lot more
money other places. If we keep
aying no to these guys -
they're going to leave."
On the other side of the coin,
lAvon Park Finance Officer
Renee Green said it might not
be long before the city could no
onger afford a fire department.

COKKt:U ION
. In the April 1 edition of the
News-Sun, a caption regarding
Michael Conner's brain dam-
age injuries from seizures was
correct. They happened 17
years ago this May.
i We apologize for any confu-
Sion this may have caused.


The issue came to light dur-
ing a discussion over suggested
changes in the firefighters' pen-
sion program.
Scott Christensen, who
serves as lawyer for the fire-
fighter's union's pension board,
presented a package that includ-
ed both updates and changes
that were ordered due to state
mandates.
He also outlined a plan where
both the firefighters and the city
would increase their contribu-
tion to the pension fund.
Christensen also suggested
the city increase the benefit
multiplier rate from 3 percent to
3.16 percent.
"That means instead of 3 per-
cent of their average salary,
they would get 3.16 percent for
each year they worked here
before their retirement," he
said. "That would be totally
funded by thecity."
Higher cost
If approved, pension board
officials said the city would be
looking at spending $45,000
more a year.
"It would go from $123,000
to $168,000 a year. That's not a
one-time thing, that's an annual
thing," said Patrick Donelan
from the firm of Foster &
Foster. "But the members are


going to put up $17,000 of
that."
At the meeting, union repre-
sentatives indicated this would
be the first time in 18 years that
they have asked for an increase.
Green disagreed with that
assessment. She pointed to fig-
ures that showed the city has
been increasing the amount it
contributes toward the retire-
ment fund.
"In 1999 the city put in 7.5
percent of their retirement. This
year it's 14.2 percent," she said.
"And this proposal would bump
the city's contribution up to
16.6 percent."
Furthermore, Green pointed
to a previous change from a
regular pension to a local law
pension that she maintained
was a great benefit to the fire
department.
"That costs the city about
$36,000," she said.
Additionally, Green pointed
out that the city is responsible
for making good any invest-
ment loss in the pension fund.
"Two years ago we had to
pay quite a bit during the Enron
and Worldcom situation," she
said. "It's part of the pension
program. They're going to have
their money in there whether
they make it or lose it in their


investment."
That differs from others, who
make money when the market
increases and loses it when Wall
Street takes a dive.
"I mean, if you and I have
money invested and the market
goes down, that's your prob-
lem," she, said.
Widespread problem
*Green said Avon Park is not
alone. In fact, there are a num-
ber of small cities that are hav-
ing problems keeping their fire
departments
functional due
to a lack of
funding.
"If we get to
K where we can-
S not afford to
s1 fund these pen-
GREEN sion plans, we
won't be able
to have a fire department," she
said.
Her experience has shown
that some communities are
reduced to deciding whether to
get rid of the fire or police
department and turning those
duties over to the county.
"When you have vehicles,
payroll, pensions and all that
stuff, it's tough," she said.
At least part of that money
could come from- the fire


assessment. However, Green
said although the assessment
amount is based on what has
been termed "a true 50 per-
cent," in reality it really only
covers about 35 percent of the
fire department budget.
That is due in large part to the
fact that churches, not for profit
and governmental entities do
not pay the assessment.
Lack of support
Moreover, council members
bristled about what they per-
ceived as a lack of support from
the department while they took
brickbats from local residents
and the clergy during the annu-
al discussion over the municipal
fire assessment.
"When we were here debat-
ing the fire assessment, we did-
n't have two rows of firefighters
here supporting us and that's
where their funds are coming
from," Councilman George
Hall told West.
"Oh, we'll be here next time
supporting it, I guarantee you
that," he responded.
Mayor Tom Macklin asked
why the pension program was
being discussed at the council
meeting.
"Shouldn't that be a collec-
tive bargaining issue?" he
asked. "I hear benefit, benefit,

SEBRING While every-
one agrees that computer sci-
ence has been more of a boon
than a bust for civilization, it
has sometimes had unexpected
consequences.
Community leaders and law
makers are wrestling with one
now.
At issue is the sale of alcohol
ov e Pthe Internet. $
LJitil the passage of the 18th
amendment, which established
Prohibition, the sale of spirits,
wine and beer was unregulated.
Over the course of decades,
suppliers came to control the
market, leaving retailers at their
-mercy.
Following the repeal of
Prohibition in 1933, a new three
tier system was instituted here
in Florida.
Instead of a free market
place, manufacturers sold only
to distributors and wholesalers
licensed by the state; and they
in turn sold only to state
licensed retailers.
Use of this system prevented
the unlawful sale of alcohol
through unregulated channels,
and forced distributors and
retailers to adhere to the law or
, risk losing their licenses.

With the advent of the ma
Internet, however, this dynamic full
shifted. For the first time since the
Prohibition a consumer could ver
buy alcohol directly from a ide
manufacturer.
The technical breakthrough as
came just as a wave of micro- ant
breweries splashed on scene. Hig

efforts, three bills, SB 480, SB stu
906 and HB 075, are now pend- has

Leaders in the field of educa- by

however, are strongly opposed* con
to these bills. They point out sho

benefit over and over. That's
what we sit down and negoti-
ate."
West said in the past that has
not been an item on the bargain-,
ing table inasmuch as some
firefighters participate in the
program while others do not.
"We have always left that off
to the side," he said. "We want
to negotiate other items, like
vacation time."
Because Florida is a right to
work state, there are some fire-
fighters who are not in the
union but still benefit from the
results of the negotiations.
The discussion ended when
Hall called for council members
to bring the matter up as part of
the city's annual budget discus-
sion.
"We're looking at a small
part of a big puzzle," he said.
"We need to include this in our
budgeting process. If this is
what they want, we need to plug
it in the budget and work back-
wards from there."
Councilman Doug Eason
called for the ordinance to come
back at the April 25 meeting.
"That'd be fine with me.
Something this important, it
would benefit everybody to
have a voice in it," Macklin
agreed.

charged with

SEBRING At 1 p.m.
Wednesday, March 23, an
undercover Highlands County
sheriff's deputy was driving
an unmarked vehicle through
the area of Martin Luther
King Boulevard (formerly
Highlands Avenue) and
Lemon Street with undercov-
er officers.
As they approached the
intersection, a man latei- iden-
tified as Dexter Cortez
Lippett, 40, of Sebring,
waved them over.
He approached the
deputy's door and negotiated
a sale of $40 in crack
cocaine. The transaction took
place within 1,000 feet of
Zion Hill Missionary Baptist
Church.
Fifteen minutes later,
Lippett was arrested and
charged with sale of cocaine
within 1,000 feet of a church
and possession of cocaine
with intent to sell.or distrib-
ute within 1,000 feet of a
church. Bail was set at

John Bell

charged with

third offense

retail theft
SEBRING Police inves-
tigated an alleged retail theft
at 8:49 a.m. Sunday, March
20, at Advance Auto Parts
Store near the Highlands
Avenue intersection. .
Allegedly, John James
Bell, 54, of Lake Placid,
entered the store and asked a
salesman for a pulley pump.
The salesman showed him an
Ampro PS Pump Pulley Kit,
priced $26.88, but Bell said
"that's too much."
The salesman turned away
from Bell and walked toward
the front register, and Bell
went to leave the store.
. However, he had his left arm
tucked underneath his jacket,
as if he had something con-
cealed beneath it, arrest
reports said.
The salesman followed
Bell outside the store and
confronted him. Bell said he
didn't have anything and did-
n't take-anything, but the
salesman asked a fellow
employee to see if the pump
was still on the shelf.
Bell took off running south
on U.S. 27. The other
employee confirmed that the
pump was missing and that
Bell was in the area of the
shelf when it disappeared.
A witness saw Bell running
. from the area and toss an
object into a white Highlands
County recycle container. The
pump was recovered from the
dumpster. It was pho-
tographed and returned to the
store.
Sebring police found Bell
walking near the Coffee Bean
restaurant and detained him.
Witnesses were brought to the
police department and they
identified Bell.
Bell was arrested on a
charge of retail theft and read.
his Miranda rights. He then
told police he dumped the
pump kit in the recycle bin,
but said he didn't take it from
the store.


Bell has been convicted
four times of theft, this
enhanced his charge to a
felony. Bail was set at $1,000.

Two teens

arrested for

stealing golf

cart in Sebring
SEBRING Tuesday
morning, police arrested two
young men for their part in
the theft of a Sun 'N Lake
maintenance golf cart.
According to arrest reports,
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office Sgt. Darin Hood found'
two Sebring teens joyriding
the Club Car down Lakeview
Drive around 5:47 a.m. and
decided to investigate. The
officer then stopped and
made contact with the boys
around Veteran's Beach and
asked them where they got
the Caryall 2 XRT utility cart.
Both boys stated they got it
from a friend. When their sto-
ries did not make sense, Hood
ran a background check. He
then became alerted that one
of the boys was on juvenile
probation and in violation of
the set curfew. That young
man was arrested and during
a statement, he and the other
boy admitted to stealing the
cart from the Country Club in
the middle of the night.
The cart, which was valued
at about $6,500, was discov-

theft with intent to perma-
nently or temporarily deprive
the victim of use.

Fires take homes on Navarre


Avenue and Duffer Road


City officials sworn in


By PHIL ATT1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Back-to-back
fires on Easter morning
destroyed two homes in
Sebring.
A fire call at 2:46 a.m. March
27 had fire crews rushing to
Sun 'N Lake of Sebring
Improvement District to fight a
fire at the home of Sase and
Homawattie Etwaru, 4618
Navarre Ave.
The Highlands County Red
Cross Service Center reports
that after the house burned, the
family lost groceries and cloth-
ing. A Disaster Action Team
member was able to provide the
family with what they needed.
Fire crews from West
Sebring Volunteer Fire
Department were on their way
to fight that fire when they got
word that Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring Fire Department had


arrived.
Their truck was then diverted
at 3 a.m. to 1501 Duffer Road
in Golf Hammock, to the home
of Joanne A. Foote. A house
there was fully involved, and
had been burning nearly two
hours before it was discovered.
Most neighbors were asleep.
Fortunately, the resident was
not home.
Scott. Mann, assistant fire
chief, said West Sebring fire-
fighters found flames and
smoke venting through the roof.
"The house was gone," he
said. "We kept the fire off the
other structures."
One nearby house was 40
yards away; another was only
20 yards. It was a hot fire in a
concrete block and stucco
house.
"Nothing inside was salvage-
able," Mann said.
The Red Cross was able to


help the homeowner with food
and clothing. Her pet cats also
escaped injury.
An investigator with the
State Fire Marshal's office has
not yet determined what caused
the blaze.
DeSoto City Volunteer Fire
Department and Sebring Fire
Department offered mutual aid.
Sebring crews brought their
aerial truck Ladder 1 to
help contain the flames.
Fire crews left the scene at
6:50 a.m. Sunday. They had the
fire out within an hour, but had
to make sure it was fully extin-
guished, then hold the scene for
the fire marshal.
Mann estimates, with having
to fill his department's tanker
twice, and DeSoto having to
bring a full tanker, the fire used
about 9,500 gallons of water.

Hurricane help available M

mNRAC: More conservation


for Highlands seniors


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The start of the
2005 hurricane season is just
around the corner and the aid to
help repair damage from last
year's trifecta of big storms
continues to come to the area.
The most recent installment
comes in the form of aid to sen-
ior citizens as part of the Older
Americans Act.
"They have earmarked a
large chunk of funding specifi-
cally for the seniors here in
Highlands County to make sure
that those kinds of repairs take
place," disaster assistance pro-
gram manager Laurie Murphy
said.
Specifically, that would be
$852,000 out of a $1.6 million
pool. Murphy said if there's
enough left over, there might.
- also be money available to help
with such things as reimburse-
ments of first deductibles.
To be eligible, an applicant
must be 60 years of age or
older, a resident of Highlands
County and must own or live in


the house in question.
"This is not for renters. It is
for a homeowner, or a caregiver
who has an elderly person liv-
ing with them," she said.
"All the funds must be
encumbered by Nov. 30 and
have to be spent shortly there-
after. There's not a lot of leeway
in this one," she said.
So far, Murphy has identified
more than 140 seniors in need
of home repairs and more are
expected.
"I'm coordinating with the
Highlands County Housing
Department and Highlands
Emergency Recovery

Operation the HERO
group," she said.
Murphy has been in the
throes of going to visit the sites
where aid bhas been requested.
Her goal is to get the 'funds to
the people in need and not to
duplicate efforts.
At that time she gets general
information on the problem,
then double checks with other
agencies to determine if they
would be addressing the prob-
lem.
"Sometimes they have some


funding that can do some things
that I can't do and sometimes I
can do things that they can't
do," she explained.
That requires some joint ses-
sions where the group goes over
the applications together and
find the best way to fix the
problems on a case by case
basis.
The projects will not be first
come, first served but rather
will be prioritized according to
need.
"We're addressing the most
critical damages to the living
structure first," she said.
The money is being routed
through the West Central
Florida Area Agency on Aging.
Murphy said the most impor-
tant thing is taking the first step.
"We're just asking people to
call us whether they heed
help themselves or if they are
aware of somebody else we
need to contact," she said.
People can either call the
NuHope Elder Care number in
Highlands County at 382-2134
or can call the Area Agency on
Aging's elder helpline toll-free
at 1-800-336-2226.


input needed on roadways


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Not only have
natural resources advisors
asked for more input on long
range transportation, they plan
to discuss it more regularly at
their own meeting.
At Wednesday's meeting, the
Natural Resources Advisory
Commission voted to ask for
more environmental input on
the county's long range trans-
portation plan. They'll also
form a subcommittee to address
the issue, headed up by NRAC
Chairman Curtis DeYoung,
Erin McCarta, Mike Sawyer,
and Dr. Hilary Swain of
Archbold Biological Station.
, Wednesday was the first time
NRAC had actually seen the
transportation future needs


map, which includes a western
bypass of the entire county.
Swain was disappointed that
the county didn't involve con-
servation in the process in the
first place.
The arbitrary bypass route on
the map runs through many
areas the state is trying to
acquire for conservation, she
said. Once lines get on a map,
they don't tend to come off, she
said.
Bypasses, in her opinion, are
"pro-sprawl," opening up areas
for development and making
land management difficult for
adjacent conservation areas.
She said limited access high-
ways, as this one is proposed to
be, encourage development at
the "nodes" junctions with
other major roadways.


DeYoung said the bypass
shows a need, but not the actual
location of a road. The true path
will change .when the Florida
Department of Transportation
does a planning, design and
engineering study.
"It must, by need, miss most
of the environmentally sensi-
tive lands," he said.
McCarta asked why the
county couldn't have an eastern
bypass and leave the western
lands alone. There are plans for
one, but it's pieced together out
of other roads through already
developed areas.
DeYoung said that it would
be longer, especially from run-
ning through already developed
areas, and wouldn't follow the
natural direction of U.S. 27
from southeast to northwest.

Hardee

Correctional

aids Habitat

By DESIREE WINDHAM
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING One of the cur-
rent Habitat for Humanity
house building sponsored by
Heartland National Bank is get-
ting a big helping hand.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity is thankful for
Warden Doug Watson of
Hardee Correctional Institution
and the strong Prison
Partnership Program, which has
been instrumental in the forma-
tion of building homes to allevi-
ate sub-standard housing.
Hardee Correctional Institution
has been successful in provid-
ing the labor to build 18 homes.
Thus, housing 18 families in
need of decent shelter and alle-
viating deplorable living condi-
tions. Through Habitat's Prison
Partnership Program, eligible
offenders have the opportunity
to volunteer to work with a
local Habitat affiliate.
Hardee Correctional
Institution is providing the
labor of its inmates to help this
community by putting up truss-
es and raising walls at two
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity work sites.
Volunteering with Habitat for
Humanity gives offenders the
opportunity to contribute to the
community during their incar-
ceration.
Through this program
offenders can develop academ-
ic, cognitive, vocational, deci-
sion-making, and interpersonal
skills.
For one week the inmates
will build walls, place trusses,
and pour concrete for Habitat
houses on Memorial Drive in
Sebring.
When one inmate was asked
how he felt about working out
in the hot sun and helping to
build a Habitat home, he
replied, "I feel good working
out here and helping people
out."
This is his first experience
with Habitat.
He enjoys laboring for
Habitat because, "I know my
time is going for 'good use' and
the time I am spending out here

Inmates and faculty from Hardee Correctional Institution have been implemental in helping Habitat for
Humanity of Highlands County with one of its current build projects.


is going to help someone in
need."
Hardee Correctional
Institution offers a Work Camp,
which is a way for the inmates
to provide their services to the
community Monday-Friday.
The inmates enjoy their time
spent as a participant in the
Hardee Work Camp because it
offers them an opportunity to
spend their time in a useful
manner.
"It's better than being in the
'pound' all day!" said one
inmate.
Another inmate wished he
"did this everyday!" If offered
an opportunity to. speak with
troubled teens this inmate
would tell them to "Take a dif-
ferent route; this isn't the place
to be. Get an education and try
to be successful in life."
Officer William Shields,
public work squad officer, has
been with the Department of
Corrections for 10 years. The
crew of seven inmates in which
Shields was supervising out on
Memorial Drive is under mini-
mum security and about to go
home soon.
Shields has worked for six
years as a public work squad
officer and has never had an
incident in which an inmate has
tried to escape. He said, "They
are just, like anybody else, if
they want to work they will and
if not, they won't."
Hardee Department of


Corrections offers inmates an
opportunity to learn new skills
and gain compassion for others
by offering an opportunity to
"give back" to their communi-
ties. Approximately 9 million
men, women and youth in the
United States are under correc-
tional supervision: 2 million
are incarcerated, and 7 million
are on probation or parole. An
average of 630,000 individuals
are released each year and
expected to be productive mem-
bers of the community.
"At Grafton Correctional
Facility, I was one of the first
offenders to volunteer with
Greater Cleveland Habitat for
Humanity. Our crew of five
began working on numerous
projects, including installing
heating and electrical systems,
hanging drywall, laying
cement, and framing.
"Through this experience, I
learned to be patient with others
and work as part of a team. The
experience helped me while I
was at Grafton and has assisted
me with my transition. Upon
my release, I applied to join
Habitat for Humanity
AmeriCorps. I now work with
and lead the affiliate's free-
world volunteers," said a for-
mer Grafton Correctional
Facility volunteer in
Cleveland.
Thus, prior statistics have
shown that in regards to "recidi-
vism" (falling back into prior


criminal habits), offering
inmates an opportunity to serve
others has a therapeutic compo-
nent that actually lowers the
risk of future crimes. By offer-
ing service to their community
they are also aiding themselves
in their own recovery process,
which begins with self worth.
By learning new skills and
obtaining a sense of achieve-
ment one begins to grow.
Eligible offender volunteers
work at the Habitat work site
under correctional supervision.
Others prefabricate housing
components or provide support
services to the affiliate while
working at the correctional
facility.
Hardee Correctional is teach-
ing "life skills" and "encourag-
ing" inmates to give back to the
communities in a positive man-
ner.
Shields said, "That's how
you learn to do something,
hands on."
Offenders' participation in
the Prison Partnership Program
is strictly voluntary. Offenders
do not face negative conse-
quences for choosing to not vol-
unteer; nor do they receive
credit or sentence reduction in
exchange for volunteering with
Habitat for Humanity.

Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity at 453-9695.


Seventh inning
'stretch' brings to

life absent punch

Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news about
Highlands County since 1927. As
a treat for our readers, we have
gone through our archives and
pulled some stories from previous
issues that we will
share on future
Sunday. Sit back .-."

From the Past of .
Aug. 8, 1935. fui

Seventh inning
stretching in the
grandstand was stretched into
all sorts of punch, rabbits' feet
and the like on the diamond
Thursday afternoon and before
it was over the Hillbillies had
climbed out from behind
Frostproof and raced off into a
lead that was never overcome.
The six-tally stretch was
enough to beat Frostproof's
four counters.
It was a weird game in a way
- but it found the middle of
the Avon Infield getting back to
a steady basis again, and the tail
end of the batting order packing
a punch, while Koneman,
moved up from the tail end,
crashed the single that scored
the two winning runs.
The Hillbillies fought an
uphill battle all the way and
outgamed their Canner compe-


tition for the margin to win.
Frostproof counted first in
the fourth when Pugh smote a
three bagger to left and raced
home on Gibbs' bunt that drew
Ends from the rubber.
Nice backing up by McFerrin
retrieved Dilley's wild heave in
the sixth after Milton was safe
on Martin's bobble and Pond
had singled to right. Milton
tried to score when the peg
went into the bush-
es, but McFerrin
/l. nailed him at the
'c plate.
SCI Pugh delivered a
two-ply rap,
though, to score
Pond.
Meanwhile a
double play had ruined a beau-
tiful opportunity in the first, for
the Hillbilles, and Young
seemed invincible the rest of
the way until that fatal seventh.
Tulk smote a single to left to
open the stretch and then Head
crashed through with a double.
Then came a trip of errors by
Gibbs, Pond and Young, on
rollers, as the Hillbillies can-
tered home. There was a whiff,
Dilley's sacrifice, McClendon's
error and Koneman's hit to
wind up the rally. Koneman
was caught stealing and
McFerrin popped. It was
enough.
Frostproof's two in the
eighth on errors by Martin and
Dilley and two Infield outs just
made the game interesting.

NRAC asks for look at


trees on power lines


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun '
SEBRING Trees under or
over power lines turned out to
be a major problem during last
year's hurricane season.
To prevent them falling on
lines or ripping up underground
cables again, citizens have
asked local government to
enact an ordinance.
A proposed ordinance .was
sent Wednesday to the Natural
Resources Advisory
Commission. Members there
would like to have the planning
and zoning commission to look
at making an ordinance, espe-
cially since that body sits in
judgment over land develop-
ment. .
A draft of the proposed ordi-
nance would prohibit .planting
trees directly under or within a
falling distance of power lines.
It would also protect buried
fiber optics and power lines as
well as sewer and water mains
from spreading root systems.
existing trees could tal where


they are.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
safety zone would have to
include the natural height of the
tree.
NRAC members thought the
ordinance wasn't detailed
enough, and needs to be
reviewed by the county attor-

SEBRING Students from
Heartland Christian School
have diligently been writing let-
ters to the soldiers in Sgt. Leon
Thomas' company for quite
some time.
Recently, Thomas returned
home on leave and visited the
students at Heartland Christian,
but also bearing pictures of the
men and women he serves with.
Many of the photos showed the
Army soldiers signing camel
packs or holding up t-shirts
from the school, all signs of
appreciation for the correspon-
dence they are getting from the
students.
Below is a collection of let-
ters that the first-grade class-
mates of Thomas' daughter,
Briah, have written to the sol-
diers. None of the spelling has
been corrected.

Three injured in two Lake Placid accidents on Friday afternoon


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -April Fool's Day was
no joke Friday, when three Lake Placid res-
idents were involved in two unrelated acci-
dents, both caused when drivers pulled
directly into oncoming traffic at intersec-
tions on U.S. 27.
The first collision occurred a few min-
utes before 3 p.m.
Elmer Hall, driving a 2002 Chevy van,
was heading south on U.S. 27, approaching
Vista Drive just south of Tomoka Heights,
when Valerie Kline, who was driving a
1992 Nissan truck and had been stopped at
the intersection, pulled into his path.
Although Hall swerved to his left and the

"He was very intelligent and
very easy 'to work with," said
Virginia Henderson who was
the Avon Park City Clerk dur-
ing Mosley's time on the coun-
cil. "He didn't get involved
with a lot of the controversy
that was going on then.
Doris Gentry served as the
mayor in Avon Park during the
time Mosley was a councilman.
"He was a hard worker and
made a wonderful contribution
to our community," she said.

chance to attend a number of
Masses conducted by the pope.
"At one of them, I was an
alter server and I had the privi-
lege to meet the pope face to
face," he said.
Gonzalez described it as an
incredible experience. Despite
the brevity of the encounter, the
Sebring priest said he was filled
simply with the power of the
pope's presence.

ing with Kline, striking her on the driver's
side of the car.
The impact, spun Hall's van counter
clockwise, and he came to rest in the paved
safety zone. Kline's truck was thrust across
the median and northbound traffic on U.S.
27, finally rolling to the east shoulder
before stopping.
Hall wasn't hurt in the accident, but
Kline sustained serious injuries and was
transported to Florida Hospital Lake Placid.
The second collision occurred just before
5 p.m. at the intersection of Lake June Road
and U.S. 27.

Noting that he was "not as
outspoken" as she was on the
council, Gentry described his
manner as "deliberative."
"He was always willing to
help in any project we had
going on," she said.
After his initial stint as a
councilman, Mosley made an
unsuccessful attempt to run for
the mayoral position after
Gentry vacated the post to run
for Highlands County
Commission.
In his 1988 campaign,
Mosley said then he sought the
post to bring stability to the
municipal government.

me and gave me a Rosary."
The Sebring priest agreed
with media representations
indicating the pope could well
be remembered as one of the
greatest men to ascend to the
papacy.
"Really, it's incredible his
accomplishments," he said. "In
the world that we live to have
that moral personality and lead-
ership it has been very impor-
tant for the whole world not
only for Catholics but for
everybody."

opportunity to meet the pope


Mosley had largely blamed his
fellow council members for the
controversy that had surround-
ed then-city manager David
Heacock.
The councilman described
his form of leadership as "par-
ticipatory," saying despite the
fact that leaders would make
the ultimate decision, the peo-
ple who might be most impact-
ed by a decision "should be giv-
ing input to the process."
Mosley, who had a doctorate
in library science from Florida
State, later left to pursue a law
degree at Stetson University.
After earning his law degree,
Mosley joined the staff at
Stetson University in 1993 as


when he visited Mexico City.
"Just a few months after he
was elected pope he went to
Mexico. That was his first trip
outside Rome," he said.
It was the response of the
people that Gonzalez said he
remembers as well as anything.
"There were millions and
millions of people on the
streets. It was the beginning of
what he did all his life frav-
eling to the different countries,"
he said.

Virginia Cullity did go to St.
James Catholic Church in Lake
Placid on Friday where she lit a
candle for the pope but she
was the only one in the sanctu-

Lighting a candle is nothing
special for Cullity who does it
regularly for family members
and for friends who "might
need a prayer."

Gonzalez said that there had

Catholic Church in memory of
the 84-year-old pontiff. St.
James Catholic Church has
planned a Rosary at 7 p.m.
Monday with a Mass to follow
at 7:30 p.m. A call was made to
the Avon Park church but no
one responded.
"He's prayed for at every sin-
gle Mass," Devlin said. "At the
petition part of the Mass, you
remember the Holy Father."
Not only is the pope remem-
bered at each Mass but so are
the bishops and archbishops.
Devlin said Pope John Paul
II had been particularly remem-
bered on Saturday due to his
"dignity in dying."
"He's showing us how to suf-
fer," she said prior to the pope's
death. "To me, we have lost the
word 'sacrifice,' especially here
in America. I think he's show-
ing us how to do that."
Cullity, who has been
through the succession of three
popes, said she could not
remember "anything special"
that was done locally before a
pope passed away.
In her experience, there has
not been the race to the church
when a pope's death is immi-
nent.
"I think it's partially because
.death is not something we're
supposed to worry -about too
much," she said. "The accent is
not on death, it is on the living."

structure to fit within the time

"The High Scope curriculum
is a sound and well balanced
program," Jackson said. "It is
well done and well written and
provides a sound foundation. I
believe in what I do. When you
don't force children, they can
learn anything."
There are currently 98 chil-
dren attending the center.


TIME
Continued from 1A
- Time while serving as a dele-
gate in Paris in 1784.
Around the turn of the 20th
century, London builder
William Willett advocated it
Daylight Saving Time to
Parliament, but the idea was
met with ridicule. Willett died
in 1915 without ever seeing an
extra minute of daylight.
It took a war to change
minds. In Great Britain, several
Acts of Parliament brought
about Daylight Saving Time in


1925.
The energy benefits became
more clear during World War I.
To .increase the. working day,
Britaini set its clocks on
"Double Summer Time" two
hours ahead during the summer
and one hour ahead during the
winter.'
The United States and other
European countries followed
suit. Congress enacted it on
March 19, 1918. Once the war
ended, Congress caved into
pressure from an unhappy con-
stituency and dropped it nation-
ally, although a few states and
some cities observed it volun-
tarily.


During World War II,
President Franklin Roosevelt
declared year-round Daylight
Saving Time more popularly
known as "War Time."
From 1945 to 1966, the fed-
eral government did not
enforce Daylight Saving Time
but allowed states and cities to
adopt. The result: Some areas
used it and some didn't, result-
ing in a confusing patchwork of
time zones. This confounded
bus and railway travelers and
threw regularly scheduled tele-
vision and radio broadcasts into
havoc.
Daylight Saving Time drew
renewed interest during the


energy crisis of the 1970s. On
Jan. 4, 1974, President Richard
Nixon signed the Emergency
Daylight Saving Time Energy
Conservation Act of 1973. For a
15-month, period, clocks were
set ahead by one hour.
In 1986, Daylight Saving
Time became a permanent prac-
tice under legislation enacted
by Congress. The legislation
"Daylight Saving Time in the
USA" set a uniform policy -
that it begins at 2 a.m. on the
first Sunday of April and ends
at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday in
October.

ed' from the current Florida
School Readiness' Performance
Standards for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-
olds; which were published in
2002.
Each provider, however, is
being given latitude in how
those standards are met, so it
would be wise for parents to
familiarize themselves with
some of the major educational
approaches, the better to match
their children to the program
best suited to their child's needs
aniid. styles of learning.
For example there are child
centered schools, likefthose in
the'Montessori system. or those
which are more tightly struc-
tured and teacher led. Some
schools are organized around a
particular faith. The varieties
are endless, but, experts agree,


some essentials are basic.
Every program should be
developmentally appropriate.
This means providers should
encourage hands-on experience
and experimentation.
For example, through sand
and water play, and building
with blocks, children learn
basic concepts about math and
science.
Providers should encourage
communication between the
students and teachers, getting
the children to talk about plan-
ning a project, or discussing an
outcome.
Classrooms should be well
stocked with a wide variety of
art materials, and the children
should be given ample opportu-
nity to use them.
Teachers should be ,able to
model behavior for the chil-
dren, and help them deal with
social conflicts as well as
engaging them in conversation.


Children need to be given
plenty of time and room to wig-
gle, skip and run.
They need lots of toys and
games that help develop fine
motor skills, like stringing
beads, Playdough and puzzles,
and learn how to button their
coats and pour liquid without
spilling.
It is important to find out
how a child's progress will be
tracked, and what kind of eval-
uation system the provider will
use.
Experts recommend parents
.visit a provider and spend time
watching the staff and children
interact, with the above stan-
dards in mind. It also is wise to
inquire about the provider's dis-
cipline policy, to be sure it is in
agreement with the parent's
philosophies.
At this time a list of
providers has not been
approved, and won't be ready


until the legislature and the
Departmentt,of Education finish
their work.
Some schools which already
have 4-year-old programs
haven't yet registered as
providers because they have
questions about the curricula.
Heartland Christian, for
example, is taking a wait and
see position, because it is faith
based and is unsure what the
state will demand or not allow.
Twenty four providers have
indicated an interest in joining
the program, but it is unclear if
all of them will be finally
approved.
In the meantime, parents are
urged to pre-register for
Voluntary Prekindergarten.
They can find paper application
forms at elementary schools
and even Wal-Mart. Parents
also may register online at
www.upkflorida.org.

TUFFiH IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Working on the

cutting edge

I like meat. At least occa-
sionally.
A good steak or a pork loin,
I can get into that.
I'd actually go so far as to
say I like meat enough to like
liver (as long as it's cooked
with onions and bacon).
What I don't like, however
(with apologies to butchers
everywhere), is working with
!raw meat.
I discovered this one mem-
orable afternoon years ago,
when I was still learning how
to cook. Home alone, I brave-
ly picked up a slab of calf's
liver to plop it into the pan. It
slide between my fingers and
hung between them, dripping
- I didn't want to know
what; it was slippery and
absolutely disgusting. I've
hated touching the stuff since.
It makes me feel like Hannibal
Leichter.
Even a firm, well marbled
porterhouse can turn me off.
It's got to do with the greasy
residue and the smell that gets
on your hands.
So while I like to eat meat,
I don't like to touch it.
Which is the reason I was
grateful when luck broke my
way on this Tuffin' It With
Tuffley at Hendrick's Grocery
& Meats at 202 E. Main St. in
Avon Park.
I owe it to my beard. Health
regulations prohibited me
from-being too close, to the

Butchers: Once




prime, now select


Jim Jurie, an Avon Park resident, makes a selection at the
Hendrick's meat counter. The store carries a full line of meat and
can custom butcher or trim.


Specialty meat products, like ox tails and cows feet, are fresh and
shipped frozen. These smoked turkey neck parts are used to flavor
beans or greens. Boning knives are kept razor sharp.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Sadly meat
cutting is a trade in the twilight.
Breakthroughs in technolo-
gies and transportation have led
to a centralized system where
cows are broken down into
component parts and shipped in
large cardboard boxes.
All a meat cutter does. any
more is slice off steaks or
chops; the main focus is now on
presentation and marketing.
Darrell Cobb, who manages
the meat section at Hendrick's
Grocery & Meats, regrets the
passing of an era, and is glad he
was a part of the old school.
As a trainee at Winn Dixie
years ago, he was taught how to
break down a cow (cutting it
into quarters ) just as the food
chain was deciding to switch to
the pre-cut system.
Meat cutting is learned on the
job Cobb explained, so people
coming into the field today are
at a disadvantage when so little
real meat cutting is done. As the
last generation of custom cut-
ters retires out of the profes-
sion, there won't be anyone left
with the knowledge to pass on.
Nowadays, Cobb said, chain
grocery stores are looking to
pay minimum wage for people
to take large boxes of meat and
repackage them into smaller
portions.
In some supermarkets, like
the one at Wal-Mart, he said,
even that has been done at a
central location so the meat
arrives already repackaged.
Which means, he added. that
it's already two to three days-
old by the time it arri.es it the

band saw. Darrell Cobb (standing in back) wraps the trays, then

store.
At Hendrick's they do things
the old fashioned way as much
as possible. Meat is custom cut,
and Cobb and his staff can han-
dle any request.
In fact, Cobb butchers
domestic hogs, and a lot of
game brought in by hunters as
well.
It's appropriate that Cobb
should be a throw back to
another era, because Hendrick's
Grocery & Meats is a throw
back as well.
The store was born as a
Texaco service station back in
the 1920s. It became Phillips
Grocery Store years later, and
Bob and Lillian Hendricks,
bought it in January of 1984.


At the time Hendricks was
quoted in the Avon Park Sun as
saying, "I think in a couple of
years that I would like to bring
in more meats and produce."
The Hendricks, with their son
Bobby, have been doing that
ever since.
In fact, Hendrick's has
become the kind of place where
a person can buy a hunting
license, a can of baked beans,
and a pair of socks. As well as
have a deer dressed. It's a true
general store.
Hendrick's Grocery & Meats
is at 202 E. Main St. It is open
from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.
The telephone number is 453-
3058.

SN 1 Wild Artist Jewelry showcases


S..... jewelry, art and much more


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The business
name aptly describes what is
found, within. Adam Ray and
his partner, Clark Abbott,
recently opened Wild Artist
Jewelry to show off Abbott's
workmanship in handmade
jewelry.
Abbot has wrapped stones
and fossilized shark teeth in
precious metals, and used coral,
pearls, emeralds, and
Swarovski crystals in jewelry
designs.
Wild Artist is set up as an
intimate art gallery and is at 125
North Ridgewood Drive, just
one block off the downtown
Sebring Circle. Abbott has used
unique design and color for dra-
matic effect of displays.
Turkish brown, poker face,
spiced orange and flaming
sword are the four colors on the
walls, which accentuate their
art offerings.
Ray expresses his Wild Artist
creative side in music, not only
with an album in Hebrew, but
by producing Spanish and
gospel music. He is the music
director for Unity of Sebring.
At Wild Artist, Ray and
Abbott have concentrated on a
high turnover mix of classy
looking yet inexpensive, deco-
rative items they've culled from
their frequent buying trips so
there's always something new
on display to delight the senses.
In the African section, there
are masks and drums (a hit with
the local drumming communi-
ty), unusual items like arthro-
pod and trilobite fossils, and
cactus rain sticks that sound
like a pouring rainfall when
upturned.
The "living art" of a Siamese
Beta Fish swimming amidst a
water plant in a clear vase
would make a great gift for a
desk. Ponchos, sarongs, silk
scarves and fabrics start at $20.
There's cypress clocks, water-
colors, Mexican masks, some
furniture pieces, tables, lamps,
large-scale leather animals from
India, and stylish plaster

SEBRING It's important that the first

Smith brings her recent expertise from owner
Gary Mullings' other store in Lakeland.
However, her experience in the food and bever-
age business covers more than 30 years, ranging
from fine dining to a Key West resort.
"I want the first impression to be one of clean-
liness," Smith said, "and we're adding more
plants to create a homey atmosphere."
Blimpie is open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day,
except for Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Breakfast is served until 11 a.m. with sandwiches

meat because of facial hair; I
had to stand outside the cutting
area and couldn't participate.
What a swell rule. And I am
pleased to report that the peo-
ple at Hendrick's think so too.
Of course there was a draw-
back having to stand back I
couldn't experience the job.
Although this too may have
been a blessing in disguise.
They use a large and danger-
ous band saw. How big and
dangerous?
John Walton, who cuts meat
at Hendrick's, gestured at it
with his boning knife at one
point and said, "It's got no
conscience. It'll whack off a
finger or a hand before you
even know it's gone."
The blade is vertical and in
the open. I was glad to be
nowhere near it.
It's used to cut up fresh
frozen body parts, like tails,
necks and feet, into smaller
pieces that are used to flavor
soup or vegetables.
As you feed the whole neck
or tail into the saw, it gets
smaller and smaller of course,
so by the end your fingers are
dangerously close to the blade.
And remember that the cutting
isn't done at a leisurely pace,
it's rip, rip, rip, and zip, zip,
zip, with the saw cutting
through frozen bone as easily
as a warm knife slices
Spumoni ice cream.
In fact, I couldn't get a
photo of the saw in use
because Walton's hands were
moving so fast they were
always blurry.
"And I'm moving slow," he
said with a grin, when I com-


bohydrate counters for $5.19.
Known for their subs, the Blimpie menu lists
fresh-sliced, hot, and grilled subs in sizes of four,
six and 12 inches, priced from $3.29 to $7.29. In
addition, there are wraps, and their special Deli
Duo features a four-inch sub with soup and salad
for $2.99
Senior discounts and daily specials are offered,
and northerners more familiar with Green
Mountain Coffee can choose between six vari-
eties and cappuccino.
The Blimpie Blast, available through catering,
is a continuous sub in three- or six-foot sizes.
"The Blasts are of braided bread and we can be
creative with them, whether a client wants wheat,
garlic, or some specific ingredient," Smith said.
Requiring a 24-hour advance notice, their deli
platters are also a catering hit.

plained.
There are two sides in the
meat cutting area. If I had been
allowed to work, I would have
either been cutting, or on the
other side where I would have
wrapped, weighed and priced
the portions.
Darrell Cobb, who manages
the meat department, taught
me several things I didn't
know. For instance, cattle have
to be taken off grass for 90
days, and heavy fed before
they are slaughtered. This is so
they 'on"t have an unpleasant
flavor, anxd will have filled out.
He explained that the cost of
shipping the special feed into
Florida is prohibitively expen-
sive. So Florida beef are sold
at auctions here, then shipped
to Nebraska where they are
heavy fed for 90 days, then
slaughtered, and sent back.


More and more now, meat is
sent already broken down into
component cuts, so all most
meat cutters do is slice.
Presentation and sales are now
the focus of the occupation,
and both Cobb and Walton
regret it.
Fortunately, the old world
lives on at Hendrick's Grocery
& Meat. Even its meat cutting
area has a grandfather clause, it
is open to public view.
Which is a good thing,
because you get to see crafts-
men at work.

Tern's legacy

On Friday, Theresa Marie Schiavo, 41, passed away in
a Pinellas Park hospice, 13 days after having her feeding
tube removed.
Born Dec. 3, 1963, in Philadelphia, she was the oldest
of Robert and Mary Schindler's three children. She was
a shy, private, tender-hearted girl and, until the age of 18,
very overweight.
Under the supervision of a physician, Terri lost 100
pounds and, not long after, fell in love with a student she
met at the community college her future husband,
Michael Schiavo.
Two years after their .marriage in November 1984,
they moved to Florida. They got jobs he managed
restaurants, she worked in the office of the Prudential
Insurance Company. Her parents followed and some-
times helped them with expenses.
And Terri lost more weight trimming her figure to
110 pounds.
Three years later, unable to get pregnant, Terri became
a patient at a fertility clinic. She also developed an eat-
ing disorder. On Feb. 25, 1990, she had a heart attack due
to lack of potassium, a consequence of her bulimia. It
took several,minutes for paramedics to arrive long
enough for her brain to be permanently damaged for lack
of oxygen.
For a time Michael Schiavo and the Schindlers worked
together to give her the best of care. From 1990 through
1994, after a 2 1/2-month hospital stay, Terri was cared
for at four nursing homes. She spent a month of that time,
at home with the Schindlers before they decided that car-
ing for her was too strenuous, and she was taken back to
a nursing facility. In the fall of 1990, the same year
Michael Schiavo was legally appointed her guardian
without objection by the Schindlers, he took her to
California, where she had a thalamic stimulator implant-
ed in her brain in the hopes it would aid her recovery.
Throughout this time,

come. Then, Michael and his in-
laws had a falling out
DR. JAY WOLFSON over his decision not to
share it with them. That
year, the Schindlers petitioned the court to remove
Michael as Terri's legal guardian.
That simple action, in 1993, launched what would
become the most litigated right-to-die case in history. In
ended 12 years later, one day before Terri's death, when
the llth U.S. Circuit Court rejected the Schindlers'
appeal.
Through many days in court, the Schinidlers have said
Terri would have wanted to live on in her condition;
Michael Schiavo said she once told him she would not
have. Eventually, judges decided that Michael spoke for
Terri's wishes and the law was on his side.
Now, if dying was Terri's wish, she has gotten it.
Terri's tragic story spurred one positive outcome a
passionate interest in living wills and end-of-life direc-
tives. Perhaps more people will see the need to make
their end-of-life wishes known, in writing, and spare
their families the grief and animosity that has developed
among Terri's loved ones.
Undoubtedly, though, her true legacy will be decided
in years to come as Dr. Jay Wolfson, one of her
guardian ad litems, expressed eloquently in "A Report to
Governor Jeb Bush and the 6th Judicial Circuit in the
Matter of Theresa Marie Schiavo," dated Dec. 1, 2003.
"Sometimes good law is not enough, good medicine is
not enough, and all too often, good intentions do not suf-
fice. Sometimes the answer is in the process, not the pre-
sumed outcome. We must be left with hope that the right
thing will be done well.
"We are, each of us, standing in Theresa Marie
Schiavo's shoes. Each of us is profoundly affected by the
decisions that have and will be made in this case.
Advocates of privacy rights and death with dignity, and
advocates of right to life and rights of the disabled pro-
vide the compelling definitional parameters of this mat-
ter."
Two days after Terri Schiavo's death, those words are
prophetic. Terri, it could be said, now belongs to the
ages. As Wolfson said, the right to life and right to die
advocates defined Terri's life while she lived it. Now, in
death, Terri will undoubtedly become a symbol and a ral-


lying cry for both sides, these polar opposites.
Undoubtedly, the debate will continue but hopefully it
will lead to a meeting of the minds among people of this
nation on when it is OK and not OK to end a per-
son's life. The door for that is wide open.

brain has liquefied; x-rays

soul remain? In this country,
thousands of family members
have been allowed to die with
dignity. With machines gone,
all bodily functions cease.
This is the reason for living

Wills must be updated continu-
ally because state legislatures
"revise" the law. However, the
Schindlers state they would not

to keep Terri "alive" as long as
possible. This is sad and tragic.

'The minute you ask a question about a writer's life,

you're not dealing with the book.'
E.L. DOCTOROW, writer, 1985


LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware

Spring

cleaning,

what's that?
What do you think of when
you hear the words, "spring
cleaning?"
If you are a normal person,
you probably think of furniture
polish, vacuum cleaners, beat-
ing rugs, and making a house
the cleanest it will be all year.
Me, I am not a normal per-
son. So I think, "clean Spring?
I didn't know it was dirty!"
I'm not, saying I am the
world's worst housekeeper, but
the only way you'd see my
home in Better Homes and
Gardens is if they ran an article
on what not to do. Let's just say
that a compulsively clean per-
son would take one look at my
house and refuse to come back
without a Hazmat suit.
Take my office, for example.
You would think that a room
where I work and spend a lot of
time would have some organi-
zation to it. It does, in a certain
slovenly manner. But there are
some things that hamper my
feeble attempts to make order
from chaos.
For one thing, let's discuss
my computer keyboard. Any-
keyboard that lands on my desk
is in for a hard life. For one
thing, with the exception of my
laptop keyboard, I am forever
wearing some of the lettering
off a couple of the keys. On the
current one, if you don't know
your keyboard, you would have
trouble discerning the "e," "s,"
"a," and "n" keys.
One reason for this is that I
do eat and drink while I work
on the computer. I know, there
are those who will lecture me
on the dangers of such behav-
ior. Sometimes it's down to
either I eat at the computer or I
ddci'reat. Sometimes it's a mat-
ter of stoking my brain a -
reason I drink coffee Wilr d at
the computer.
Of course, this presents cer-
tain dangers. Part of this can be
blamed on our dog, Perky, who
has never met a food or drink
he didn't like. (This includes
frozen broccoli, but we'll dis-
cuss that another time). Once,
when I carelessly left my desk
unsupervised, Perky decided to
sample my coffee.
Unfortunately, since he isn't
built to drink out of a mug,
some of the coffee splashed
over the desk and the keyboard.
That keyboard sported coffee
stains until I retired it.
A friend of mine actually
cleaned out her keyboard once.
She found petrified cereal in
there. This is a scary thing to
contemplate.
Another complication on
keeping my office neat is the
exercise bike. Don and I, in a
burst of wanting to get fit,
bought an exercise bike. It sat
in its box for months while we
debated an important issue:
where would we set up the
bicycle?
After much debate, the bike
was given shelter in my office.
It sits in the middle of it, in
front of a spare computer mon-
itor and accuses me for not get-
ting on it enough. I know I
should, but I manage to mostly
ignore it since when I'm on my
computer my back is to it. But
it does make it hard to get any
organization done while it sits
there.
Arguably, my attitude about
housekeeping is a factor. My
attitude is there is too much
other stuff to do to take time to
engage in spring cleaning.
Summer, winter, or fall clean-
ing either for that matter.
I do try. Dishes do get
washed. Laundry gets done
before it gets bigger than me.
You can actually walk through


entire rooms without worrying
about stepping on something.
But if I were to sum up my
housekeeping motto in one sen-
tence, it would probably be
something like this: "A clean
house is a sign of a broken
computer."

no purpose if it does
not protect life. There
is no higher calling of
public officials or
deeper justification for
the rule of law than to
value and defend '0"
human life.
And with respect to
the law, death is differ- OP
ent. This principle is
rooted in our criminal LLOYD
treatment of those
who have been or may
be sentenced to capital punish-
ment
These principles together
should convince us that when in
doubt, government should
always error on the side of pro-
tecting life.
Despite what our courts ruled
and what the media would have
us believe, there is so much
doubt surrounding Terri
Schiavo's tragedy. The reason
why she has gained so much
attention where other similarly
injured individuals have not is
because of the shroud of doubt
around her wishes, her hus-
band's motives, her true medical
condition, and in motives of our
branches of government and
mainstream media.
First, to her wishes. If she-
truly wanted to go without suste-
nance in this situation, the
debate is moot. Her husband and
a friend insisted in court that
death is what she would have
wanted.
The timing of these averments
is suspect in its own right; how-
ever, of greater concern is that all
of her biological and spiritual
family believes she would have
fiercely defended her life.
Whom to believe?


INION
D JONES


We should believe
whoever is most cred-
ible. Michael Schiavo,
when it was legally
expedient to gain a
malpractice settle-
ment, did not testify
that she would want to
die. After all, a woman
in Terri's condition
makes a much more
sympathetic plaintiff
than a husband who
starved his wife to
death. Why testify to


the fact that her life will be sub-
sequently "mercifully ended"
when pain and suffering dam-
ages are being calculated?
Also to that end, it became
much more convenient for
Michael Schiavo to "let Terri die
in peace" only when he had start-
ed a relationship with another
woman, and had new children by
that woman. It was only then,
years after Terri fell ill, that he
remembered her desire to die -
and initiated legal action to
enforce it. There are many more
questions surrounding his char-
acter, too numerous to recount
here.
None such doubts surround
the motives of Terri Schiavo's
family.
There is still more doubt
about Terri's actual condition.
The media has laboriously per-
petuated the notion that Terri is
in a "persistent vegetative state,"
because the trial courts said so.
These are the same courts that
trusted Michael Schiavo's. word.
Here, they are trusting the word
of his doctors.
Terri laughs, cries and talks.
Her body performs every funda-
mental function except eat and
drink. She is not on a respirator

or any other devices that regu-
lates her fundamental processes.
She lives a life very different
from you and I, but not no less
valuable. Unlike her family,
Terri's husband has not been
buoyed by these signs of life. He
has not permitted her to rehabil-
itation for her condition for over
a decade.
America does not understand
her condition, either. The polls
would have you believe that the
majority of Americans want her
to die. These represent some of
the most biased polls of recent
history.
For instance, ABC News
prepped respondents by declar-
ing that her condition was "irre-


versible" and that she was "on
life support." The first is highly
contested, and the second is a.
flat-out lie. Perhaps Dan Rather
has signed on at ae new network.
Amidst these billowing clouds
of doubt, what firm law has the
judiciary applied? The legal pre-
sumption is that her husband, as
her legal caretaker, would have
to prove by "clear and convinc-
ing" evidence that he was carry-
ing out her wishes. This is where
our law failed its purpose and its
people.
The law is fine as it is and
that is the problem. It is the
jurisprudence exercised in apply-
ing the law that shocks the con-
science, yet there is seemingly

p no check on the courts.
By no measure was the
evidence clear and con-
vincing that Terri
desired death.
The only higher stan-
dard of evidence our law
employs is the "beyond
a reasonable doubt"
standard used in crimi-
nal cases. That is, juries
may not convict a man of
murder unless there is
no doubt in their mind
that he is guilty.
Terri was essentially
sentenced to death
$5 under a much lower
standard; and more
chilling, the standard
applied to her was
abused. Given the great
doubt permeating the
case, how did our courts
fail to treat death differ-
ently? This is why
Congress acted as it did.
Let us be clear:
Congress did not act
unconstitutionally. The
Constitution empowers
Congress, not the courts, to
establish and amend a jurisdic-
tional system for the federal
court system.
Furthermore, Congress cor-
rectly used habeas corpus ration-
ale to justify its action. Habeas is
used to ensure that the criminal-
ly accused can be brought before
another court when jurisdiction
or due process has been abused.
It's a mechanism by which feder-
al courts can review on the
facts of the case an abuse of
judicial discretion, where the
states otherwise would have sole
discretion.
Sound familiar?
Herein lays yet another dis-


turbing twist in Terri's case.
Congress directed the federal
court to review her case de novo,
meaning that no deference was
required to lower decisions. The
court was to hear the case anew.
It did not.
Just a day before Terri's
death, a federal court issued a
statement that talked only of sep-
aration of powers, not of life sus-
taining treatment. To Terri, the
court gaye Marbury v. Madison
where it should have instead
measured the merits.
The judiciary used Terri as a
grinding stone for its axe, which
it then used to chop away at leg-
islative authority to protect jus-
tice.
Not all of our government
shirked its responsibility to pro-
tect life.
Mel Martinez gave new mean-
ing to the term "constituent serv-
ice" by valiantly fighting for
Terri's life. The weight of
Congress would have gained no
inertia without his efforts.
Governor Bush did all he
could to save her life.
By contrast, our state senator
J.D. Alexander refused to save
her life.
While her life may have been
treated as cheap, there should be
a steep political price to pay.
The tragedy of Terri Schiavo's
death reveals what happens
when the law ceases to serve the
people, and we instead become
subservient to it. Her life meant
nothing to the courts. ,Let us now
determine what her death will
mean to our society.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
April 4, 1995: Stacy Tolar
and Dee Scott combined on
a three-hitter, and the
Sebring Lady Blue Streaks
played error-free defense to
back them up as Sebring
rolled to an 8-2 win over
Moore Haven. The Streaks
led 1-0 in the third when
Courtney Dixon's single to
left started a string of six
straight walks and one hit
batter that led to six runs
for Sebring.

Devils stay up late to beat Mulberry


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Winning ballclubs put
it together when it counts.
The Avon Park Red Devils have
excelled at doing just that, and came up
with their second consecutive one-run vic-
tory in District 10-3A play Friday night,
holding on to beat Mulberry 6-5.
"I said all along I really like this ball-
team," Avon Park head coach Mort
Jackson said. "They've got heart, they've
got grit, they're just a good group of
ballplayers. They're fun to be around."
Right-hander Michael Diaz (1-0) made
his first start and only his third appearance
on the mound, but hung tough, and despite
allowing five runs on 12 hits, went 6 2/3
innings to earn the win for Avon Park (8-
7, 4-1 in the district).
"I told Coach (Seth) Lambert, my
pitching coach, before the season that we
had a kid come up from basketball who
was going to be a special pitcher for us,"
Jackson said. "I had seen him all summer.

Streaks


stumble


vs. Rays
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring
jumped on Lemon Bay starter
Casey Hanrahan for a run in
the top of the first inning but
failed to score again during
what was the Blue Streaks'
first district loss of the season
Friday night, falling victim to
the Manta Rays' small ball, 3-
1, at Firemen's Field.
Charlie Peck delivered that
Lemon Bay only run with a
3 single to right,
scoring Chaz
r Abeln before
Sebring three unan-
swered runs by
Lemon Bay.
The Streaks,
who at one point won six of
seven, have now dropped four
of their last six and find them-
selves in a tie for first place in
the district with the also 3-1
Manta Rays.
"Some of us have got to just
step up," Sebring coach Hoppy
Rewis said. "We've got some
young kids and either you're
getting better or you're sitting
still and now we're sitting still.
Satchel Paige used to say 'If
you're sitting still, by God,


Coach Lambert had never seen him. He
believes now."
"He mixed his offspeed up real well
with his fastball," Mulberry head coach
Frank Yurchak observed. "He located the
ball real well and he put it in good spots."
Diaz was only taken down after a mis-
play of Mulberry No. 9 batter Phelan
Avon Park Gallegas' hit to right
allowed a run to score and
6 cut the Avon Park lead to
one in the seventh.
Mulberry Robert Lewis came on
5 with runners on first and
third to face Josh Thornton,
who had been 3-for-4, and
forced a fly ball that right fielder Lee
Albritton tracked down for the final out.
"He atoned for it; as long as he got that
one," Jackson said. "That was the one that
mattered."
A insurance run scored by Diaz on a
Mulberry (8-6, 2-3) error in the bottom of
the sixth proved significant as well, and, in
spite of a 3-for-4 night from Johnny


Sedlock, was the first Red Devil run since
the third inning.
"When we hit, we get them when we
need them," Jackson said. "There are
nights when we just don't hit. We either
hit and we get them when we need them,
or we don't hit at all, and that's kind of the
way the team's been."
The Panthers were nearly the opposite,
and in the third inning loaded the bases
with nobody out but never scored a run as
Diaz struck out three straight.
"He's just a tough kid," Jackson said of
his pitcher. "Nothing rattles him, he does-
n't get upset. He knows what he wants to
accomplish."
"I just go out there and don't even
worry about anything else that's going on
around, just try to throw strikes, and try
not to throw balls," said Diaz, who admit-
ted he surprised even himself with his per-
formance.
His counterpart, Mulberry starter

somebody passes you.'"
The visitors also stole seven
bases to make up for only one
extra-base hit, a Justin
Robinson triple in the second
inning to set up their first run
of the game, and plated their
three scores on an opposite
field single, a sacrifice fly and
a delayed steal of home.
"It's just they made us look
silly on a couple of plays and

Winners weather conditions

for 54 in United Way Classic
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The decision to give each golfer tak-
ing part in the United Way Golf Classic at River Greens
on Saturday a combination club umbrella and ball retriev-
er turned out to be tremendous foresight when the 28
four-person teams took to the course in a wind-driven
rain.
The weather dried up midway through the front nine,
although the wind remained throughout the round. That
didn't stop the winning team from shooting a sparkling
18-under 54, however.
The foursome of Stan Schoonover, Kerry Thompson,
Mike Rider and Dick Taylor carded 14 birdies,.two eagles
and a pair of pars for their winning score, which was one
stroke better than the team of Paul McCormac, Jim
Anderson, Russ Rudd and Terry Dray. Long-drive contest
winner Ryan Gault, joined Brian Bone, Peter Coughlin
and Charlie Little to take third in the championship flight
with 16-under.
The first flight was even closer, as a match of cards was
needed to decide the winner at 13-under. The team of
Dennis Dunn, Travis Dunn, Bev Dunn and Jennifer.
Martin won the flight by virtue of an eagle on No. 9, the


corn. I mean, you hit 11 rou-
tine fly balls, you're not going
to win many games."
Ryan Williams went 3-for-4
with a double while Kiko
Vazquez reached all four times
he came to the plate, going 2-
for-2 with two more walks to
lead the Streaks offensively.
The combination of
Vazquez and Abeln on the hill
was enough to hold Lemon
Bay to only four hits and two
earned runs, but the dearly
needed run support was absent.
Vazquez, Sebring's starter,
allowed two runs, striking out


five in three innings of work.,
"We (look at Kiko's night)
every time and see that he only
gave up one run, two runs. If
you give up two hits or two
runs on a pop up that should've
been caught and stuff like that,
it's tough."
Abeln, a sophomore reliev-
er, allowed one earned run and
inherited a 1-1 game with the
bases loaded and no outs in the
fourth. Despite allowing a
punch single to right to give
the visitors the lead, 2-1, Abeln

Herenden, Vince Stoddard, Cliff Steele and Ron Smith.
Third place in the first flight went to a three-man team
of physicians as Dr. Kye Pahk, Dr. Ramon Torres and Dr.

down.

Lady Panthers

upset another

state power
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK They might
not be giants, but the Lady
Panthers are sure turning into
giant killers.
Last weekend,,it was confer-
ence-leading Hillsborough,
ranked third in the state and
18th in the nation, th.r left the
South Florida Community
College campus with a black
eye after being swept in a dou-
bleheader. Thursday, it was
state No. 2 Seminole that the
Lady Panthers knocked down a
peg with another sweep.
"Anybody that's in the
(state) top 10, we seem to
beat," SFCC head coach Carlos
Falla said. "We have a tenden-
cy to knock off the big guys."
As usual, pitcher Christina
Morrow led the way for the
Panthers, pitching back-to-
back shutouts. Morrow had to
pitch her way out of several
jams for a 1-0 win in the first
game.
Morrow got some more good
defensive support in the second
game in addition to help from
an improved offense with 2-
for-3 performances from

Champs reclaim title

in Myrtice Durrance
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING The winners were familiar,
but the setting was new for the Myrtice
Durrance Memorial on Saturday.
Instead of its traditional home at Placid
Lakes, currently undergoing improvements,
the tournament shifted to The Country Club of
Sebring on Saturday, and former champions
Mike Starr, Mike Chapman, Ron Chapman
and Hary Gregor came away with the low
gross of 54.
"We started a little bit slow, but not bad,"
Mike Chapman said, having started the tour-
nament in rain and finished under clear skies.
"We actually started on some easy holes, so we
got birdies. If we'd have started on the tough
holes in the rain like that we might have had a
problem, but we started on the easy ones and
got birdies."
No strangers to the Durrance or other tour-

News-Sun, Sunday, April 3, 2005 3B



Bass may not be popular in Japan, but they will


be in next Sunday's tournament on Lake June


Japanese officials believe
largemouth bass are a threat to
ayu, chub, carp and other
native species in Japan. Bass
made their way to Japan in the
1920s when a Japanese busi-
nessman imported 400 of them
from California and put them
in Lake Ashinoko near Tokyo.
Other fishermen, enthralled
with the largemouth bass'
fierce fighting ability, intro-
duced the fish into other lakes
and ponds in that country.
They say a few even found
their way into the moat sur-
rounding the Imperial Palace in
Tokyo.
Bass fishing has never fit
very well with the stodgy
upper crust of society in Japan.
A high-ranking director of fish-
eries says that bass anglers are
bad-mannered and disrespect
the law. His denunciation
comes a little late when you
consider that there are more
than 3 million bass anglers in
Japan.
Last year, Shinichi Fukae
came to America and won the

Mulberry also had trouble

which held the without a hit and
gave them their only district

"That's what we keep harp-

Abeln encountered the same
type of situation in the very
next inning when Ashton Boyer

error and was followed by an
Alex Walker walk before both

steal. Then, with runners on
second and third, the Manta
Rays caught Sebring off guard
with a successful delayed steal
of home to go up 3-1.
Sebring attempted rallies in
the fifth and seventh innings,

reached base each time, but the
pair were left stranded, part of
nine runners left on base.

Season is sure to be full of surprises


Well, we made it.
Opening Day is today, and it
appears that despite the cata-
clysm that was the Boston Red
Sox actually winning the
World Series, and after nearly
five months of the clear and
the cream cooking in the hot
stove, there will indeed be
baseball again.
Here's a look at just what
might happen.
Today: After enduring the
choke for all ages and watch-
ing the hated Red Sox win the
-Series, Yankee fans will turn.
An odd feeling of pessimism
will descend on Yankee stadi-
um, and the hand-wringing
will only intensify after an
ominous 20-4 Boston win to
start the season.
Tuesday: Despite an 8-3 vic-
tory over the Dodgers without
the "injured" Barry Bonds,
controversy swirls around the
veteran Giants after bottles of
Geritol are found in several of
the lockers at SBC Park.
April 13: The Nationals
complete a three-game sweep
of Atlanta and take over first
place in the NL East. While
shocking, the baseball world is
slightly less surprised than
Frank Robinson is when he
finds Joe Gibbs asleep in his
RFK Stadium office.
May 12: With the Yankees
in last place, 11 '/2 games behind
the Red Sox, George
Steinbrenner cans manager Joe
Torre. The Boss claims his
baseball people advised him to
hire someone who can help the
team get access to better
steroids, and names Victor
Conte the new manager.
May 25: The upstart Tigers
climb into a tie for first with
the Indians in the AL Central.
Story is under-reported, since
even the Baseball Tonight crew
can't name five players for
either team.
June 14: Bonds returns to
Giants lineup and is taken
down for a pinch-runner after
receiving an intentional walk


TIME OUT
Chuck Myron

in the ninth. After the game an
angry Bonds, son in tow,
storms into manager's office
and berates Felipe Alou for
"hurting his family."
July 5: Jason Giambi, bat-
ting .343 with 39 homers, is
roundly hailed as the AL first-
half MVP, but suspicions arise
when his cap bursts apart dur-
ing game with Orioles.
July 12: All-Star game
somehow again winds up in
tie, and commissioner Bud
Selig declares home-field
advantage in the World Series
will go to whichever league
has the least players suspended
for steroid violations.
Aug. 6: Major League
Baseball steroid testers seen
going into SBC Park.
Aug. 7: Bonds calls retire-
ment press conference, and
deflects all questions to his
son, so the media "can see who
they're really hurting."
Aug. 23: Devil Rays home
attendance reaches coveted
1,000 mark for the year when a
confused tourist, dizzy from
the heat, wanders into
Tropicana Field.
Sept. 9: With the Yankees
again in a tailspin and Giambi
on the disabled list with
encephalitis and acute back
acne, Steinbrenner fires Conte
and names the late Billy
Martin manager.
Sept. 10: After he fails to
rise from the dead to make it to
the game, Steinbrenner fires
Martin and appoints himself as


manager. In fit of rage after 9-8
loss to Toronto, Steinbrenner
fires himself.
Sept. 11: Selig steps into
assuage Yankee situation, and
appoints Frank Robinson the
new Yankees manager. Joe
Gibbs takes over in
Washington and attempts to
conquer a third sport.
Sept. 28: Baseball
announces moribund Devil
Rays will be relocated to
Montreal to boost attendance.
Oct. 3: Tigers defeat Indians
6-5 in one-game playoff for
AL Central title, yet the ESPN
telecast of the game draws
lower ratings than dogs playing
poker on ESPN2.
Oct. 11: Before Giants'
NLCS with Cardinals, a
slimmed-down Barry Bonds
unretires and, despite not hit-
ting a single home run in the
seven-game epic, steals 16
bases to earn MVP honors.
After the series, Tony La Russa
said he still doesn't believe
Bonds ever took steroids.
Oct. 19: Riding a wave of
momentum after Robinson
skippers them to a wild-card,
the Yankees enter Fenway Park
for Game 7 of the ALCS, and
are one out away from the pen-
nant. A bouncing ball to third
base eludes Alex Rodriguez,
however, and the Red Sox rally
to win. Fox cameras in Nev
York bar show depict wincing
and simultaneous groan of
"Here we go again."
Oct. 27: Bonds steals 14
bases in six-game series
against the Red Sox to again
earn postseason MVP honors
as he leads the Giants to victo-
ry for his first World Series
title.'A relaxed, happy-go-
lucky Bonds deflects praise to
his teammates after the game,
and claims to have found
"inner peace" by replacing
'roid rage with "some flaxseed
oil I got from Ricky Williams."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Judgment

and mercy
The brink of a new jour-
ney. Exciting and terrifying.
After only a year in our new
home, God was unmistak-
ably moving us out to more
affordable pastures.
The purchase of our
house had brought us too
close to our financial edge.
When property taxes dou-
bled, we caved. And our
quest began.
We broadened our search
from New Jersey into neigh-
boring Pennsylvania, find-
ing a quaint, old farm house
in the countryside. My hus-
band made inquiries for a
transfer. Our house went up
for sale.
The transfer came
through along with a two-
hour commute one way.
When the New Jersey house
didn't sell,-we wondered if
we'd heard God correctly.
Or was his "no" only prepa-
ration for a better "yes?"
Recently, while studying
about Moses, I received
fresh insight. I read how
Moses had dealt with a
"stiff-necked" people for
years after God miraculous-
ly had delivered them from
slavery in Egypt. They
plagued Moses night and
day with their complaints.
Continually, he went before
God for the people.
When they cried for
water in the wilderness,
God told Moses to speak to
the rock and it would spew
forth fresh water. Moses
was so frustrated and angry
with the people, that instead
of showing obedience and
honor to God'% word, he hit
'the r(Kc'wice."' '
Interestingly, God stiff"
provided the water. But
Moses disobedience cost
him the privilege of going
into the Promised Land.
I hurt for Moses. But I
learned that even God's
chosen servant was held
accountable for his actions.
Then another thought
emerged.
God took Moses high up
on the mountain to view the
Promised Land. He com-
missioned Joshua to lead the
people whom God proph-
esied would still rebel
against him. Then when
Moses died, God himself
buried him.
I wondered if in God's
judgment of Moses, anger
he had also extended him
grace and mercy by releas-
ing him from the tiresome
responsibility of a rebellious
people. Instead, Moses rest-
ed in God's bosom a far
greater "promised land"
than any earthly location.
We knew that God had
prompted us to sell our one-
year old house. But, we
should have proceeded more
cautiously and given him a
chance to direct us. While
anticipating the fulfillment
of God's plan, the long,
winter commute could have
been avoided.
However, God's "no" was
still heaped with mercy and
grace. He kept Ken safe in
his commute. He taught us
many lessons of patience,
listening for God's voice
and his timing; and, how
much more conservative he
wanted us to be with our
finances.
At last, our direction was
turned to Florida where
becoming debt-free would
be achieved more quickly.
God mercifully spared us
from more financial
heartache by leading us to a
"promised land" that
restored my ailing hus-

'What do you know about cement?'


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Gene's creativity thrust him into
unusual opportunities. His short atten-
tion span shrunk further after serving in
Vietnam translating into various
careers and locations.
"I'm blessed that Gloria lets me do
my own thing and rolls along beside
me."
"I knew Gene would always provide
for us, so I didn't worry about him stay-
ing in one place for the long haul."
When he brought home a new idea,
they discussed ideas openly. Then she'd
say "Whatever," but with approval. She
knew her man and he needed to be able
to "do his own thing."
He and Gloria had been married about
15 years and had three children when a


friend shared about an
opportunity in Saudi
Arabia. It would
involve sales and
Gene's ears perked up.
He knew he could
sell knee pads to a
camel. He loved
adventure. What did
he have to lose?
Intriguing. That's what
it was. And the whole
family could experi-
ence a foreign culture.
Gloria picked up on


c b-y:REDOEHLER S
graphic by: FRED KOEHLERINEWSSUN


his excitement and agreed he should
give it a try. When he told her that he
would be selling cement, her only ques-
tion was, "What do you know about
cement?"
Indeed, Gene thought. What do I
know about cement?
But he wouldn't let a little thing like
that stand in the way. He consulted with
people in the industry; then, armed with
his newly acquired knowledge, proceed-
ed to put together the necessary docu-
ments, get passports and pack.
Gene would fly there first, get settled
and send for Gloria and the kids in a few
weeks. However, things didn't progress
exactly as they were supposed to.
The wife 6f the man who introduced
the opportunity to Gene opened her
home to Gloria and her children while
they waited on word from Gene.
In spite of his limited cement knowl-


edge, Gene was highly
successful. His
employers loved him;
but, they continually
put off having his fam-
ily join him.
Meanwhile,
Gloria's sense of
humor stretched thin-
ner than a rubber band
ready to snap. Delays
caused both families to
get on each others


nerves.
When the question
about Gene's family was waved aside
one more time by his superiors, he
hopped a flight back to the States.
Though Gloria had been eager to experi-
ence a foreign culture with Gene, she
happily acquiesced. Being together was
what mattered.
When they look back on the uncon-
ventional way he earned a living and
provided for his family, they tilt their
heads back and laugh.
"We've had so much fun in the things
that we've experienced together," Gene
said.
Fun. It's framed their marriage, actu-
ally. They know how to laugh at them-
selves; to tease and banter back and forth
and cradle life's events with a sense of
mirth. It keeps them buoyant.
So, who needs to know anything
about cement?


Warm-up time
You crawl into bed waiting for
your spouse. He gets in bed with-
out turning off the light. He says
it's your turn. You say it's his.
Then he playfully asks you to
pick a number from 1-10. You
say, "three." He says wrong and
you get out of bed and turn off the
light.

Sit-up and take notice
What just happened here? Why
did you get up and give in? But,
immediately you laugh, glad that
playfulness has won out instead
of arguing the point.

Curl-up together
Coming alongside your mate
as his completee" may mean giv-
ing into his playful ways even if
he really could have turned off
the light on his way to bed.
Accommodating grace allows
you to fall asleep in each other's
arms with a smile on your face.

ARTS & LEISURE


Sick days are for the birds French films dominate library's April film.series


Where was I? I
was home, sick.
Nearly everyone
enjoys being at home,
but no one wants to
be sick. There was a
silver lining in my
enforced inactivity.
So many of us live at
a pace that used to be
a joke -warp speed
- that we miss out
on what is right under
our noses.
I laid back in the
recliner in the sun-


room and realized that I hadn't
been home on a weekday morn-
ing for a long time. Just to show
me what I'd been missing, a
pair of red-headed woodpeck-
ers flew in and began working
over the bark on a large pine.
Then a swirl of huge wings
announced the arrival of a
pileated woodpecker, searching
for grubs at the base of another
pine. I felt for the pine as
chunks of bark went flying.
The pleated woodpecker is
one big bird! Its head is red and
crested and its body is black
with white striping on the neck
and under the wings. It dwarfed
the red-headed woodpeckers,
but they weren't spooked by the
presence of a bird three times
their size.
Naturally, I had to find a
library book that would tell me
all about this bird. "The Book
of North American Birds" says
that the pileated woodpecker is
now the largest North American
woodpecker. The main differ-
ence between the pileated and
the equally large ivory-billed is
that the latter has a creamy
white bill.
The ivory-billed woodpecker
was a Southern bird but is con-
sidered to be all but extinct
because it ate mainly "flat-
headed borers that live beneath
the bark of dead or dying trees.
In all likelihood, today's small-
er, better-managed forests could
not sustain even a token popula-
tion of ivory-bills." It seems
that the pileated woodpecker
isn't so choosy about its diet.
Any bird that enjoys ants is sure.
to find a good meal.
"The Book of North
American Birds" continues:
"Pileateds still need large tracts
of woodland, but they have
adapted well to younger trees."


Pileated woodpeck-
ers range over much
of the northwest and
all of the eastern
United States.
Maturing to the size
of a newborn baby
(16-19 inches),
Florida's law con-
cerning preservation
of cypress trees has
probably been a great
help, as they make
big excavations in
trees for their nests.
The Arthur Howell


book "Florida Bird Life" says,
"(B)irds are perhaps most
numerous in hammocks or
swamps, where there is an
abundance of decaying trees.
We found a number of pairs
breeding in cypress trees along
the borders of Lake Istokpoga."
This is the right time to look
for their nests, as they breed
from March to May. Howell
calls them "a decidedly useful
species. It never injures farm
crops but feeds but feeds entirely in the
forests, rendering good service
there in, the destruction of
wood-boring beetles".
For those of you who like to
wander on the trails of
Highlands Hammock State
Park, this is an ideal nesting
area with acres of rotten
stumps, cypress, pine, black
gum, oak and cabbage palmet-
to. Howell notes "the birds are
very fond of palmetto berries.
Getting up with the sun on
Easter Sunday became a time
for reflection on the Creator's
gifts to us. The ferns and new
growth on our hurricane-dam-
aged trees are beginning to soft-
en the landscape, and the birds
and other wildlife seem unaf-
fected by last summer's havoc.
What better time to reflect on
the meaning of life and the
bounty of beauty that surrounds
us, waiting for us to slow down
and watch the unfolding of the
intricate pattern of life and
death in our own back yards.,


Shows begin at noon
Saturday at Avon
Park Public Library
AVON PARK French
movies will be featured at the
April film series hosted by the
Avon Park Public Library, 100
N. Museum Ave.
Films begin at noon on
Saturday. The schedule is as
follows:
On Saturday, "Cyrano de
Bergerac" (1990) will be
shown. Based on the play by
Edmond Rostand, the story is
one of a swashbuckling cavalier
and hopeless romantic bur-
dened with an enormous nose.
He loves Roxanne, but she is
taken with Christian, another
soldier in Cyrano's regiment.
Cyrano expresses his love for
Roxanne through Christian,
causing her to fall in love with
him instead. Gerard Depardieu


was nominated for an Oscar for
his performance as Cyrano.
Jean-Paul Rappeneau's direc-
tion is ltsh and magnificent.
Running time: 2 hours, 17 min-
utes. Rated: PG. In French with
English subtitles.
Krzysztof Kieslowski's sem-
inal 1990s trilogy, examining
the symbolic meaning of the
colors of the French flag, will
begin April 9 and continue on
April 14 and 23.
The first in the series, "Blue"
(1993), focuses on a young
woman who is devastated by an
accident which kills her com-
poser husband and daughter.
She retreats into sorrow, but her
husband's affairs continue to
bring her out of her shell. This,
perhaps, is the liberty alluded to
by the blue in the French flag.
Running time: 1 hour, 38 min-
utes. Rated: R for nudity, sex
and language. In French with
English subtitles.


Next will be "White" (1994),
which refers to the band in the
French flag that stands for
equality. In this film, a marital
strain develops between a
Polish hair stylist and his
French wife, due in part to his
inability to consummate their
marriage. She divorces him,
and he returns to Poland under
the most bizarre conditions. He
plots his revenge to make her
suffer equally. Running time: 1
hour, 32 minutes. Rated: R for
some sexuality and language. In
French with English subtitles.
The final Kieslowski film
will be "Red" (1994), referring
to the stripe in the French flag
that stands for fraternity. A con-
nection develops from shared
revelations between a depressed
model and a retired judge who
has acquired a taste for
voyeurism, played by the
acclaimed Jean-Louis
Trintignant.


The plot turns into a com-
pelling mystery with an unex-
pected conclusion. Running
time: 1 hour, 39 minutes. Rated:
R for a brief but strong sex
scene. In French with English
subtitles.
On April 30, the film will be
"The Closet" (2001), directed
by Francis Veber. Gerard
Depardieu plays an office bully
who harasses a weak co-work-
er, played by Daniel Auteuil.
Rumor circulates that Auteuil is
to be fired and that he is gay -
and thus the firing should be
carefully done to avoid accusa-
tions of discrimination.
Running time: 1 hour, 25 min-
utes. Rated: R for a scene of
sexuality. In French with
English subtitles.
For details, call the library at
452-3803.


Enjoy spring activities at Highlands Hammock


Spring is on the 5
way, and with it, lots s .
for your family to --
enjoy at the park.
Hey, mom and dad:
Why not plan evening
picnics and playtime
at the park?
The family can
relax and enjoy an REAL
evening meal, out-
doors or at the Dorot]
Hammock Inn. The
kids can play on the
playground or throw a
football.
After dinner, stroll some of
the trails that you haven't visit-
ed lately. Do you remember the
giant tree on the Big Oak Trail?
It's the one that's over 36 feet
around, and just over 1,000


F

hy


years old. Or how
about the oak you
can stand inside of
on the Hickory
Trail? Of course my
favorite trail, the
F e r n
Garden/Memorial
Trail is always a
FLORIDA great place to look
for frogs, water
y Harris snakes and alligators
-- in the evening.
As the days last
longer, our staff
begins preparations for our
annual Earth Day celebration.
From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday,
April 23, you'll find activities
for your family to enjoy. One of
them is our big community yard
sale.


Since the weather is nice
now, I'll bet you are ready to
clean out your garage, attic or
shed. Having yard sales at
home can be inconvenient -
think of the 6 a.m. early birds!
Some neighborhoods discour-
age it, and no one likes people
parking in their yard. We have
the solution!
Why not start organizing
your stuff and plan to join us on
Earth Day? Spaces will be
available for a $10 donation,
which will support park
improvement projects. Not only
will you be supporting the park,
getting rid of unneeded items
and raising some money for you
or your favorite charity, you'll
be able to do it during our
annual Earth Day Festival, so it


will be fun too!
For more information, call
Dorothy Harris at 634-7695 .
We hope that you'll join us to
"reduce, reuse, and recycle" all
that stuff that you no longer
need. After all, "one person's
trash just might be another's
treasure," and I'm sure you will
treasure the family memories of
this fun-filled, nature-focused
day.

ice specialist at Highlands

'Brick by Brick'



Seventh-graders explain their goals and how they expect to

achieve them in third annual essay contest


Football star
My goal is to become a football player or a
lawyer. This is my goal because I want to sup-
port my family, my mom and dad, and I want
my family to be able to enjoy life. My first
step is to get good grades and get into college.
I also need to change my behavior and ways,-
including staying focused and staying away
from drugs. I know if I do this things, my fam-
ily will be proud of me and support me
because they can look back and say, "That
Boy Achieved His Goals."
Ryan Commodore
Lake Placid Middle School

Healing others
What would you like to accomplish "One
Brick at a Time"? I would like to be a doctor.
That is what I would like to accomplish "One
Brick at a Time."
To be able to make my goal come true, I
would need to make sure my grades are very
high. Then I would need to finish school.
While I would be trying to accomplish that, I
would have to save up my money to go to col-
lege.
Imagine having to study all of those years.
That is a long time. But I know it will be worth
it.
Norma Salgado
Lake Placid Middle School

Rodeo champ
Do you have a goal in life? I do, and it is to
make the National Finals Rodeo. Only the best
of the best make it to the NFR. I want to make
it in calf roping. In calf roping you have to
give the calf a head start out of a shoot, and
you try to rope him and tie him in the fastest
time. It is a very competitive sport and is a lot
of hard work but is definitely a goal I aim to
achieve. So I had better get to work.
Slade Bronson
Lake Placid Christian School

Future scholar
My goal is to go to high school and be a
very good student. I. want to qualify for the
Bright Futures Program. In order for me to
make it, I must have a 4.0 grade point average
and I have to keep it throughout my high
school education. This program will help me
pay for college. But first, I want to make it
through middle school with straight A's and
have a good reputation. I encourage everyone
to try to make this their goal, because it is very
important to have a good education.
Korey Cooke
Lake Placid Christian School

Healing pets
My goal in life is to go through high school
and college with good grades and become a
vet. I chose to be a vet because I love animals,
and I've wanted to be a vet since I was 5. I
know I'll have to spend seven or eight years in
college, but it will be worth it. Since I got the
channel "Animal Planet," I've been longing to
be a vet. I watch it all the time, and it shows
operations, just so I can get use to it.
Hopefully, I'll get all A's and B's when I get to
college. If I don't, I'll be very disappointed in
myself. Being a vet is my life goal.
Chelsey Corder
Lake Placid Christian School

International soccer star
My goal in life is to be a professional soc-
cer player and play on a U.S. team or go play
in Europe on one of their teams over there. I
plan to practice my shooting and dribbling
first by playing with my brother or dad at the
soccer field. Then I will practice my passing
and maybe some trick moves if I can do them.
And if none of those things work, then I will
get a personal trainer to help me out. Now you
know what my goal in life is.
Robert Greene
Lake Placid Christian School

Designing woman
My biggest goal is to be a house designer. I
will accomplish this by working hard in math,
studying every day and night, and working on
all the little things. This has been a goal for
five years. One day, I will work in a big house
and make it look gorgeous. When I am older,
I'll be a fantastic designer. What I will do is fix
old and brokendown houses and decorate
them. It will be profitable but affordable


P.T. Barnum,
the circus
promoter whose
created 'The
Greatest Show
on Earth,' is
the subject of
'Barnum: The
Musical.'











F or the third year in a row, the Newvs-Sun and Highlands Little Theatre
sponsored an essay contest centered around a theatrical production.
This year's show was based on the song "Brick by Brick" from "Barnum:
The Musical."
All seventh-graders were invited to participate in the contest, which
asked them to explain in about 100 %words one goal they hoped to accom-
plish in their lives and what steps would they take to do that.
A $25 check is going to the winner of the contest. Tara Henderson. Ten
finalists and their guests were invited to the premiere staging of "Barnum"
at Highlands Little Theatre.
The top three winners are being published below.


Underwater adventure
Firsi place
My goal in life is to be a marine biologist. I love to study and work with
marine life. I will work hard to get good grades and try to get scholarships
into great colleges. I will practice scuba diving and get used to life under-
water. Then once I get into a college with a good marine biology section
and graduate. I %%ill be fulfilling my lifelong dream of a marine biologist
"one brick at a time."
Tara Henderson
Lake Placid Middle School


Fighting fires
Second place
I hale always wanted to be a firefighter because many of m) family
members haie been firefighters. Firefighters get to drive big trucks. but
more importantly the) get to save people's homes and lives. I will need to
do mn best and finish high school. Then. I will go to firefighters' school
and learn how to be a good firefighter. That should not be hard for me
because I am fast and very strong. When my goal is accomplished. I will
be able to help people and make mv community a better place to live.
Shelby Gavagni
Lake Placid Middle School

Public safety
Third place
I want to be a police officer hen I grow up just like my dad. In order to
achieve mv goals. I have to make the right decisions. For example, to not
get into trouble and get good grades in school. I also have to attend college.
Then on top of that I need to attend a police academy for approximately
four months if day school or in night school for 11 months. Then I need to
look for a job in police work after graduation.
Kaelyn Fort
Lake Placid Christian School


homes. I can't want to graduate at an Orlando
college nd work on my dream job!
Dakota Keys
Lake Placid Christian School

Checking work twice
My goal in life is to go through the rest of
middle school with straight A's. First you need
to pay attention in class and do your home-
work. Next you need to follow the text. Last
you need to either double check your work or
do the work twice. To reach my goal I need to
do all of what I just said.
Matt Nichols
Lake Placid Christian School

Being a good student
Accomplish a goal could be challenging,


complicated or stressful. My goal at this time
is to excel in my schoolwork.
To accomplish this goal, I first need to do
well in all my class work and homework. The
second step to complete this would be to pay
attention and listen to all my teachers. The
third and final step is my reading more to
expand my knowledge and vocabulary.
So far my goal is being accomplished
because I am doing my best to be an "A" stu-
dent.
Emmanuel Pinillos
Lake Placid Christian School

Saving animals
My goal in life is to become a vet. I wish to
go to Cornell University, study hard and grad-
uate with all A's. By working hard all through
high school and trying to win scholarships, I


can fulfill this. I want to own my own clinic. I
know many people become very attached to
their dying pets, and I wish to have a chapel in
my clinic to help them. I also want to find
cures for death causing diseases in animals. I
love animals and wish to help them. Overall, I
want to be the best Christian vet I can.
Priscilla Restagno
Lake Placid Christian School

Good grades
Have you ever had a goal that you've tried
to accomplish? Well, I have and it wasn't that
easy. My goal was to get better grades, and
especially in math. I've learned my lesson. If
you don't study or pay attention in class, you
get a bad grade. Trust me ... it happens.
I've been trying to accomplish my goal by
actually studying, and it works! It can really
help you achieve and succeed! Good grades
are something I need right now because I want
to get into a good college. I will continue to
get good grades and continue achieving my
goal.
Kirstie Stein
Lake Placid Christian School

Religious legacy
Most people say they want to get a dirtbike,
be a doctor or any other job. For me I want to
accomplish one thing. I want to leave a legacy
as an outstanding Christian. With God's help
step-by-step brick by brick, I have to learn to
love everyone and share with them that God
loves them too!
Throughout my life my goal is to leave a
legacy for God learning how to always depend
on him and to not worry. By taking it one brick
at a time and always keeping God first, I can
leave a legacy!
Ansley Stewart
Lake Placid Christian School

Playing soccer
My dream is to be a professional soccer
player in England when I grow up. In order for
me to do this, I am going to practice different
moves, harder shots and other drills in my
yard. I will go on to play soccer in high school
and then also in college to perfect my skills. I
would like to play here in America for a year
or two and finally go on to play for a team in
England. This is how I plan to fulfill my
dream.
Kyle Thompson
Lake Placid Christian School

Straight A student
My goal is a fairly simple one. It is to get to
the end of my seventh grade year with all A's.
To achieve my goal, I will work hard on my
daily work at school and my homework at
home. Also I will try to continue to study hard
and try to do my best on every test and quiz in
class.
I have been doing well on achieving my
goal so far this year because I have all A's so
far and have been working very diligently.
I enjoy doing well, and will continue to do
my best.
Tyler Valentine
Lake Placid Christian School

Sailing around
the world
Some day I want to sail around the world
with my dad in a sailboat. I will get there step
by step by practicing sailing. I am not a good
sailor now, but Dad will teach me how to sail
because he is a great sailor. I want to be just
like him. We will someday sail around the
world in a boat large enough to handle rough
seas. With a lot of hard work and confidence,
I can do this.
Ben Viox
Lake Placid Christian School

What I want to do when I grow up is to be
a lawyer. How am I going to get there is to
start out by studying a lot of English and what-
ever else I need to know. I will go to college
and get a law degree. I will study hard and do
all of my homework. Anything that I can do to
keep my grades up, I will do! So, what I am
trying to say is that I am willing to do anything
to achieve my goal.

Some plants suit some gardeners, but not others


Ponder is defined
by Webster's
Dictionary as "to
weigh in the mind or
to think about and
reflect on." Plants to
Ponder, or PTP, will
he a series of articles
about plants that you
may want to serious-
ly think about before
you plant them or
allow them to grow
on your land.
Often we need to
remove small unde-
sirable plants before
they get started and

become big undesirable plants.
As we do this as home owners,
we can accomplish the work
ourselves when they are young
and small. Once they become
large, we may have to hire a
professional to accomplish this
task for safety sake and to get
the trash such as limbs and


stumps hauled to a
proper disposal loca-
tion.
It goes without
saying that paying
someone to remove
them will be more
costly than doing the
job ourselves. We
always need to con-
sider safety, but our
pocketbooks may be
much better off if we
do a little work on our
own when plants are
small and manageable.
Some plants may
have negative charac-


teristics for some home owners
but be welcome by others. As
an example, a friend and fellow
Master Gardner welcomes just
about any type of palm to his
property in Lake Placid. He has
roughly five acres and loves
palms of all types. Huge vari-
eties like the Bismarck, Royal


and Washingtonia are welcome
in his oversized yard.
Like many of you, this writer
has less than three-quarters of
an acre. Any of those palms, in
a mature state, would be too
large for my yard.
Another Palm my friend is
glad to have in his yard is the
Phoenix reclinata or Senegal
date palm. I owned one of these
for a number of years but would
not accept one as a gift today
even with a cash bonus. They
are very difficult to deal with
unless you like being stuck with
thorns that are as sharp as a nee-
dle. These thorns have inflicted
too many wounds on me to ever
want one again.
The Reclinata palm is one of
the most beautiful of the land-
scape palms. Many landscape
architects and landscape
designers favor it, as it is great
in landscaping of large estates,
and institutions like South


Florida Community College. It
will also be often found in the
property of palm aficionados,
but for the majority of home-
owners in our area forewarned
is forearmed.
If you have a plant that you
would like to see covered in this
column for a certain reason
please call the Master Gardner
Office at 402-6540 and leave a
message for Plants to Ponder.
You can also send e-mail to

Kutcher says the concept for his
new movie, "Guess Who," start-

"The idea really came from
when I was spending time with

"Guess Who," which debuted

An inspirational thought

J leremiah 18:1-ot. "The word which
came to Jeremiah from the Lord,
saving, Arise, and go down to the
potter's house. and there I will cause
thee to hearf tI' Iw'ords. Then I went
fdo'wn to the potter's house, and
behold, he wrought a work on the,
wheels. And the vessel that he made'
of clay was marred In the hand'-of
the potter: so he made it again
another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 0 house
of Israel, cannot I do with you: as this potter? Saith the
Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye
in mine hand, 0 house of Israel." In Jeremiah 18th
chapter, God instructed Jeremiah to go down to the
potter's house because there was something He wanted
him to see. Now, even tho hat God showed him was
concerning the Nation we can apply it to our
individual lives. There ree key figures in this
passage of scripture: Th (Jesus), The Clay (Us),
The wheels circumstancec or the process). As clay,
the Potter (Jesus) has se chosen us, but some of
us are stuck on the whe [fe. this is not your final
destination, only a part process to get you to your
purpose. The process i for a season. Remain
focused on the purpose, process. Be Encouraged!

Bernie Mac is a version of

"In certain places in the
United States I really think that
people aren't just looking at peo-
ple as people," says Kutcher. "So
I did this movie with the hope of
changing people's minds."
In the magazine's style of
entertainers conversing with
each other, Kutcher was inter-
viewed by Brad Pitt. Pitt, no
stranger to tabloid gossip him-
self, didn't much press Kutcher
on rumors that his girlfriend,

Young director hits mark with 'A Tale of Two Pizzas'


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
When he was only 12,
Vincent Sassone knew he want-
ed to make movies.
Following in the steps of
Steven Spielberg, he lugged a
camera around his neighbor-
hood and made home movies,
coaxing family members in the
leading roles.
In his early adult years, after
earning a bachelor's degree in
fine arts from Catholic
University in Washington, D.C.,
Sassone worked in wrote, took
acting jobs in New York City
and Los Angeles, and worked
on his own stage productions.
He also completed a short
film "Italian Lessons." Only
36 minutes long, it told the sim-
ple story of a young window
who teaches the "language of
love" to a high school boy so
that he can score with girls. He
falls for her instead until a
suitor from Italy turns the duo
into a triangle.
The acclaimed short film
played on Northwest Airlines.
Sassone wanted to make a fea-
ture version and when that
fell through he turned to anoth-
er script he had stashed away,
"A Tale of Two Pizzas."
Completed in 2003, the
"high-carb romantic comedy -
inspired by "Romeo and Juliet"
- is making its rounds on the
festival circuit and getting "two
thumbs up" from audiences.
During its debut at the 2003
Northampton Film Festival,
Sassone got his first indication
that he had hit the'jackpot as he
was heading to the theater
where it was being shown.
"I walked around the corner
with my dad, and the line to the


theater was wrapped around the
corner. We filled 500-seat the-
ater. We were their highest
grossing film in the 10-year his-
tory of the festival."
"Two Pizzas" went on to get
the audience choice award for
best comedy at the Sarasota
Film Festival in 2004. It was
shown at the JVC American
Filmmaker's Showcase at the
2003 Cannes Film Festival. It
tied for audience favorite at the
Food in Film Festival in
California, headlined the 2004
Daytona Beach Film Festival,
and then crossed an ocean to
help inaugurate the
Cimameriche Film Festival in
Liguria, Italy.
The corporate representatives
of N&S Cinemas, which owns
Fairmount Cinema 6, saw the
film in Daytona Beach and
started booking it in its theaters.
It opened at the Fairmount on
Friday, giving local audiences
the rare opportunity to see an
independent film on the big
screen ahead of the rest of the
country and before it goes to
video.
Sassone explained the grow-
ing popularity of "Two Pizzas"
by saying pizza and movies just
seem to go together.
Of course, a sprinkling of
romance never hurt, either.
In "Two Pizzas," a 20-year
feud has been going on between
to rival pizzerias one owned
by Vito Rossi (Vinnie Pastore);
the other by Frank Bianco
(Frank Vincent).
"One has good crust, the
other has good sauce," Sassone
said of the rivalry.
When a secret recipe is stolen
from one of the pizza shops, the
pizza makers declare war on


each other. Yet secretly their
son and daughter are finding
ways to make peace.
A casting coupe brought
Vinnie Pastore and Frank
Vincent into the leading roles.
Sassone said his casting direc-
tor, Rob Decina, slipped the
script to Pastore, the actor who
became a recognizable face for
playing the wiseguy Big Pussy
Bonpensiero on the HBO hit
TV show "The Sopranos" from
1999-2000. Pastore shared an
agent with Vincent, his friend
and another "Soprano" star. He
signed on next.
Sassone recalled meeting his
prospective leads over lunch.
"I wasn't interviewing them.
They were interviewing me," he
recalled. "All they wanted to
know was: Who are you? Are
you going to make me look
good? Am I in the right hands?
Because ultimately, as a direc-
tor, it is what I'm going to do
with them."
Pastore was particularly
looking for a film "that didn't
have a gun in it," Sassone said.
That had been the concept of
"Two Pizzas" from beginning.
"We talked about this film
has having no guns, no car
chases, no drugs, just high-carb
Italian family romance,"
Sassone said.
Once he won over his leading
men, Patti D'Arbanville of the
TV show "Third Watch" and
Angela Pietropinto of "Another
World" came aboard as the
wives of the story Margie
Bianco and Beverly Rossi.
Robin Paul is the Rossi daugh-
ter, Angela, while Conor Dubin
is Tony Bianco.
Peter Fish wrote the score.

'A Tale of Two Pizzas' opened Friday at Fairmount Cinema 6 in Sebring. The independent film has been
receiving rave reviews from audiences who have seen in at film festivals since it was released in 2003.


Freddy Cole, brother of Nat
King Cole, sings on the sound-
track.
Five animated pieces were
created by Jeff Drew, an artist
from Albuquerque, N.M.
"I honestly wanted to do
something a little different,"
Sassone said. "When you're
working on a small budget, it's
time to take chance because you
can."
In the film, doodling is the
lovesick Tony's way of express-
ing himself, and through anima-


tion his scribbles take on a life
of its own.
The rest of the film was shot
in on the streets and in the
pizza parlors of Yonkers.
"Where I was born and
raised," Sassone confirmed.
"We used a lot of the locations
that I was familiar with while I
was growing up. A lot of the
color in the film comes from
people I knew, my family knew,
the pizzerias that we used, my
family has been going to for
years. I wanted to put Yonkers


on film and also Italians the
way I see them."
Ironically, in the circular ebb
of life, just as "Italian Lessons"
led Sassone into making "Two
Pizzas," "Two Pizzas" is lead-
ing back to "Italian Lessons."
As things are shaping up, it will
be Sassone's next feature film,
and he hopes shooting will
begin later this year.

Highlands Little


Theatre sets audition


dates for 'Cabaret'


Courtesy photo
The congregation at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 4348
Schumacher Road, in Sebring, recently received the gift of a
steeple. Crews from Innovative Brick and Stone of Sebring and
L.A. Hart Equipment Co. joined forces with the congregation to
erect a steeple on top of a 15-foot concrete tower at the church.
The building itself was not built to hold the weight of such a
large steeple, according to Pastor Jim Weed. In 1955, the steeple
was placed atop of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Lakeland, but
when the church relocated a couple of years ago the building was
sold to a business, which had no need for the steeple. It was later
given to the Sebring church.


Co-directors
looking for nine
women and 10
men for a variety
of parts

SEBRING The revo-
lutionary reinvention of Kander
and Ebb's hit musical
"Cabaret" brings to life the
seedy glamour of the legendary
Kit Kat Club.
The show begins on the eve
of Adolph Hitler's rise to power
in Weimar, Germany, and
depicts the interlocking stories
of a cabaret singer, an
American writer and the
denizens of Berlin, all caught
up in the swirling maelstrom of
a changing society.
"Cabaret" will come to life
on the Highlands Little Theatre
stage in August as the fifth
show in its 2004-05 season.
Co-directors Melanie Boulay
and Jennifer Westergom have
scheduled auditions.
An open audition for cast
members will be at 5:45 p.m.
Thursday, April 14. Attendance
is required for all actors. Those
who are unable to attend should
call one of the directors.
A choreography rehearsal for
girls audtioning for the leading
role of Sally Bowles or for one


of the Kit Kat performers. It
will be from 9 a.m. to noon
Saturday, April 16. Girls must
attend in dance attire and shoes
appropriate for dancing. Come
warmed up and ready to dance.
Men auditioning for the
Emcee will have a choreogra-
phy rehearsal from 1-3 p.m.
Saturday, April 16. Come in
comfortable clothes.
An audition night for every-
one interested in any part will
be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 19.
Auditions will be at 6 p.m.
Thursday, April 21, for the
characters of Sally, Cliff,
Frauline Schneider, Herr
Schultz, Ernst and Frauline
Kost.
Performance auditions will
take place at 6 p.m. Friday,
April 22. Vocal and physical
warm-ups will begin at 9 a.m.
An audition schedule, pro-
posed rehearsal schedule and
description of each part will be
posted at the theater. There are
nine women's parts and 10
men's part. All sing to some
extent.
There are no extras or chorus
parts in this show.

News-Sun, Sunday


SHARON JONES/News-Sun
Chris Hayes, as P.T. Barnum, gets his circus show on the road in 'Barnum: The Music.' It will be playing
at Highlands Little Theatre in Sebring through Sunday, April 10.


'Barnum' brings in the clowns


With the opening g
of "Barnum: The
Musical" on March
25, Highlands Little .,
Theatre presented its
140th main stage
production. The cir-
cus musical was an
excellent choice to
commemorate the "
L a k e s i d e ONSi
Playhouse's mile-
stone for the play is Roy R
an exuberant and -
joyful celebration of
"show biz."
Capable Christopher Hayes
portrayed Phineas Taylor
Barnum, and Deanna Pollard
played his stage wife, Charity
Barnum, his supportive yet
decidedly independent help-
mate.
Clell Ford was the
Ringmaster, a crucial part nec-
essary to forward the narrative
of the play and introduce new
characters as they appeared on
stage.
The historical Barnum was
convinced that there was a
"sucker born every minute,"
and to take advantage of his
motto he exhibited unusual peo-
ple and marvels to satisfy
gullible curiosity and profit
from this inquisitiveness. The
HLT audience was treated to a
peek of Joice Heath, the "oldest
women in the world" who
claimed to be the nurse of
George Washington. This won-
der was played by multi-talent-
ed Toni Ford, who in the second
act is reincarnated into a blues

cussionist, Paige Bach was the

The costume design was exe-
cuted by Bea Walsh, her seam-
stresses were Helen Curcio,
June Gates, Nancy Gill,
Barbara Fleming, and Toni
Ford. The wardrobe assistants
were Barbara Sylvester, Edna
Wilson, Ben Turner, and Robert
Martin; make-up was done by
Clare Baird and Lois Brown
and Janet Waldron was the
stage manager.
The set design was by Kathy
MacNeill and Tom Walsh, who
was also the construction coor-
dinator. Set art was done by
Cameron Redk, Christopher
Friend and Kathy MacNeill.
The lobby art was painted- by
Holly Elliott. The set construc-

Another sensation was "The
Swedish Nightingale" Jenny
Lind who was delightfully pre-
sented by 16-year-old Jill
Lockhart. She was also respon-
sible for co-choreographing the
show with Heather Boyce.
However well known those
two phenomenons were, the
most sensational crowd pleaser
the arsenal was Tom Thumb,
played by Cameron Reck who
breaks into song to explain that
"Bigger Isn't Better."
The list of principal charac-
ters of the play included the
aerialists Nicole Brand and
Lydia Ford who were schooled
by fellow aerialist Morgan
