Gas prices impact budgets, not service


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING So far, public
safety officials have said
increased gasoline prices may
impact their budgets, but will
not reduce their service.
Sebring Police Chief Tom
Dettman said with his city on
the brink of major residential
and commercial expansion, he
could not afford to reduce serv-
ice at all.
Still, Highlands.County resi-


dents may see the county and
municipalities shift funds
around to cover the increased
gasoline costs. Dettman, for
example, may use $2.85-$3 per
gallon as an estimated cost for
next year.
County department heads are
using $1.99 per gallon to budg-
et for next year, said Assistant
County Administrator Tom
Portz, If that estimate is off-
base, the county will have to


adjust. So far, no one has asked
for more money, Portz said.
That could change.
Emergency Medical Services
calls have increased 8-10 per-
cent each month over the num-
bers from last year, in addition
to having a higher diesel fuel
price. EMS Director Rick
Weigand budgeted $65,000 for
fuel costs this year, to cover
4,000 gallons per month for 16
vehicles. Only 10 run at a time.


He predicts he may spend as
much as $75,000-$80,000 by
Sept. 30, and will have to ask
for more money.
"We can't let it'affect deliv-
ery of service," Weigand said.
"We're getting a double wham-
my."
Prices stay up
According to the U.S.
Department of Energy, average
summer gasoline prices will
peak in May at $2.35, perhaps

Activists with the Washington Heights Concerned Citizen's Committee, (from left) James and Miranda Hampton and Mar3
Stephens, meet every other Thursday to find solutions to their neighborhoods problems.



Still a part of Sebring


* Street renaming insults MLK, see
page 2A.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Every other
Thursday night for the past year the
Washington Heights Concerned
Citizen's Committee has been meet-
ing to develop a plan of action.
Their goal is to spark a regenera-
tion for their corner of Sebring, or at
the least, spark an open discussion
which would lead to improvements
over time.
"Washington Heights has been
badly and sadly neglected for 0oo
long," said Miranda Hampton, a con-
jcerned citizen at last week's meeting.
i "Money has not trickled down to us.
Our neighborhood should not look
blighted like this. It's 'a part of
Sebring, too."
Committee members recognize


that area residents have to be part of
the solution, and' the committee is
eager to lead the battle.
What they need, however is help.
Especially in the area of code
enforcement.
For, example, Chairman Robert
Saffold, a retired art teacher, points to
the difficulties faced with getting
reluctant homeowners to make
repairs, improvements or simply
clean up. Often, he said, the only way
to get people to act, is throtigh the
enforcement of city codes.
This is further complicated by the
number of absented landlords who
own property in Washington Heights.
Too many of these landlords care only
about collecting rent. When their ten-
ants move, Saffold said, the landlords
think nothing of emptying old mat-
tiesses, refrigerators or junk out on
the street, where the piles of trash
may sit for weeks.


"If someone dumps trash, or what-
ever violation goes on down by the
Wauchula State Bank, he gets
stopped. We think it should be the
same on the other side of the tracks. If
you dump trash on Lemon Street you
should also be stopped."
"We know the problems,", added
Hampton. "The issues have gone on,
for years."
She was addressing an infrastruc-
ture that was inadequate from the.
beginning, and has only deteriorated
as the decades have passed. What few
sidewalks there are, are often cracked
and broken, and street lights are few
and far between.
Just a few weeks ago for example,
a woman pushing her baby in a
stroller after dark on Cemetery Road
was struck and sent to the hospital by
a driver who had failed to see her.

higher on the West Coast.
American drivers may use as
much as 9.33 million barrels of
oilper day this summer, up 1.8
percent from last year.
A higher number of vehicles,
increased miles traveled,
declining fuel efficiency in the
American vehicle fleet, and
reformulated summer blends to
reduce smog, and gasoline sup-
plies will be tight this year.

Sheriff forms


vision with


community
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING For weeks now Sheriff
Susan Bentoh and other officers of the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office 'have
been getting feedback and opinions from
members of the community about what areas
(i.e. drugs, gangs, robberies) need to be
focused on most by law enforcement.
Topics such as expanded service, visibili-
ty and information sharing on tip lines have
been discussed by about 40
members of the agency as
well as citizens in an
attempt to understand, how
to more efficiently prevent
crime.
Benton took the newest
step in establishing how the
HCSO would handle these .NT..
issuestas she presented a more concrete ver-
sion of the mission and vision statements of
the agency, as well as a set of %alues. to an
audience of about 20 in the basement of the
Highlands County Courthouse Fnday.
"What we are trying to do today is try to
define ourselves and define our agency,"
Benton said. "Not us as individuals with
individual traits, but the values that we hold
inherent in the organization."
Eighteen posters labeling "major issues"
and "values" lined the walls of the jury
assembly room as Dr. Jim Sewell, a retired
assistant commissioner of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, paced
across the floor as he helped Benton present
their main ideas in an attempt to "capture the
essence of the agency."
It was the second meeting in as many.
days, with most of the observers being rep-"
resentatives of certain neighborhood group.
like Glades Electric Co-op, Department of
Corrections and Health Services.
"We invited business folks, we invited
agricultural folks, we invited persons of dif-
ferent ethnic backgrounds so that we had the
input from the basis of their needs specifi-
cally to their groups," Benton said after the
assembly. "We wanted to get a broadbased
feedback of what the community really sees
of the sheriff's office and what they really
want us to be."

Catholics bid farewell to Pope John Paul II


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Before he
died, Pope John Paul II com-
posed a prayer, a blessing for all
people.
It told people of Jesus' love
that comforts hearts and gives
peace. It also asked people not
to be afraid, have hope and trust
in Jesus.
"Jesus, I trust in ydu. Have
pity on us and on the entire
world," recited Father Leo
Frechette, a retired priest assist-
ing Father Gerald Grogan, pas-
tor at Our Lady of Grace
Catholic Church in Avon Park.
As main celebrant at a Friday
morning Mass for the pope -


assisted by con-celebrant Father
John Belfield, also retired -
Frechette noted that the pope's
last word was "amen," as if to
say that his whole life had been
a prayer.
That "prayer" ended on the
afternoon of April 2 when the
84-year-old pontiff -died. The
funeral was Friday morning in
Rome, watched via satellite by
local parishioners.
Justine Devlin, who got up at
3 a.m. to watch the funeral, was
particularly moved by the fact
that the pope was taken out of
the large ornate Basilica of St.
Peter in the Vatican in a simple
wooden box and laid on the
ground, among the people. It


was humble W -1
and honored
everyday peo-




son on earth,"
she said. "He was, because of
technology, able to visit every
country and every religion. He
wanted us all to know we were
one family; (that) God created
us all to be brothers."
The event was particularly.
emotional for her, as she
believes it is for 1 billion other
Catholics.
"When a father dies, the child


in us cries," she said.
Four year's ago, her own
father died, which she found
particularly hard because she
felt protected while he was
alive. When the pope died, she
went through the same emo-
tions.
In 1977, she and her husband
Paul moved from Chicago to
start anew in Florida, the year
before Pope John Paul II was
installed.
During his time, she felt
comforted and protected by
him. She had gotten to be in his
presence four times in his life
- including on her 50th birth-
day, Oct. 23, 1988 and each


time she was "privileged to be
infected by his joy."
She believes Pope John Paul
II also had a mission to protect
the faith from the weakness of
man. When she saw him strug-
gle with his weaknesses, it gave
her courage and strength to tri-
umph over her own.
"When I didn't want to smile,
I saw hope in his face," she
said. "He was faithful to the
truth. (You) always speak truth
to your children, no matter how
hard it is for the child to listen."
The last time she went to
Rome October 2004 -
Devlin knew that would be the
last time she saw him.

Avon Park Housing Authority looks at apartment complex


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Housing Authority is look-
ing to expand, but it might be a
while.
Housing Authority Executive
Director Alice Oldham con-
firmed that the city's Housing
Authority is interested in pur-
chasing the Ridgedale
Apartments. But it will be a
while before it becomes clear
whether or not the buyout could
be accomplished.
"They've come to the end of
their 15-year contract, so cur-
rently are going through a
restructuring of the mortgage
and the whole financial pack-
age," Oldham said.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK on July 1,
Jim Fitch will be retiring from
his post as curator of the South
Florida Community College
Museum of Florida Art and
Culture.
His retirement is a healthy
sign that the museum, which
he was instrumental in nurtur-
ing to life, is well established
and poised to become a cultur-
al center of importance in the
region.
In the '90s, Fitch, who with
his wife Anne, owned and
operated the Kissimmee Valley
Gallery, began consulting with
a consortium of investors, the
Florida Master's Collection,
which was looking to collect
contemporary regional art.
Contemporary, Fitch said,
meant looking for living
artists. Regional meant looking
for artists with a connection
and commitment to a place, a
sense of history an d ,%
observation, as well as skill
- and technique.
The collection grew, and as
it did, the consortium decided
to avoid brick and mortar and
find a more creative way to


"Meanwhile, I'd heard it might
be for sale."
Oldham has been in a quest
to determine whether or not the
Housing Authority might be
able to get the 36-unit complex
on Fairview Terrace, which gets
the bulk of its revenue from
Housing and Urban
Development Section 8 fund-
ing.
However, she said it won't be
known until the end of June
whether or not the facility
might be available.
"I've been talking with their
Realtor down in Fort
Lauderdale and they don't even
have a price on it," she said.
When. a4 property that
receives its revenue from


display it. After extended dis-
cussion the consortium gifted a
nucleus collection to SFCC,
which provided the building to
house it.
"Dr. [Catherine] Cornelius,
who was president of SFCC at
the time, said to me, 'Here is a
building, now make it into a
museum," Fitch explained.
He did just that, and its
doors opened in December
2002. Fitch adds that the time
has come to bring in an admin-
istrator to take the museum to
the next step.
"The potential is incalcula-
ble," he said, sitting forward in
his seat, his excitement evi-
dent. "We have the finest col-
lection of contemporary
regional art in the state of
Florida, and a facility that is
focused and well tuned, pro-
cessing and presenting the
region in its art.
"For example, the Highway
Men Collection. We have over
.. (4 pamnungs and all the recog
nized -artists-are represented."
What thdt did for us, is that it
gave us a lot of visibility and
credibility, it was a key that
opened doors. It made people
conscious of the -value -


Section 8 funding comes to the
end of its contract, owners who
decide not to continue with the
program generally offer it to the
tenants.
If the tenants opt not to lur-
chase it, the building then is
offered to the local housing
authority.
"We're the second one that
has the choice in doing it,"
Oldham explained. "We'd like
to see those units stay available
at an affordable assisted rent."
It is Oldham's understanding
that the owner of the apartment
complex has sold other, tax
credit properties in the past
Under Section 8 funding,
rents are calculated in much the
same manner they are deter-


financial and artistic of
regional art.
"Go back 10 years when art
that was representational or
wasn't from New York, San
Francisco or Paris, was
laughed at. That's changing."
Fitch described the museum,
which focuses on history as
well as art, as a time capsule.
"If the future, people will be
able to go back to a recogniza-
ble point in time," he said.
"Regional art has a future," he
added. "They're transitional,
and valuable.
"Take the portraits that were
done during the American
Revolution. There was a mar-
ket for them and early sign
painters and such took advan-
tage of it. Many of these por-
traits were primitive, but now
the ones that survive are our
best window into that time.
They are worth millions now,
if you can find them.
"Well, six or seven or 10
generations down the road,
you're looking at it folks -`
this is our window. These
paintings will be extremely
valuable for future generations.
"History has proven it. The
trick is to pick the artists who


mined for public housing.
"They pay no more than 30
percent of adjusted gross
income," she said.
Actually, although the
Section 8 contracts run for 15
years, Oldham said this particu-
lar deal might have run longer.
However, just like the tenants
in the building, Oldham said
whether or not the building is
affordable for the Housing
Authority would dictate
whether or not the purchase
would be viable.
"Obviously we could manage
it but only if it's an afford-
able mortgage. If too much
money is owed on it or if there's
too much tax liability, we
wouldn't be able to do it," she


said.
Oldham said the Avon Park
operation is cash strapped.
Because it is such a small
authority it has never been able
to earn money on a large
Section 8 property the way big-
ger housing authorities have
done.

Despite the fact that the
renters get government assis-
tance, the facility itself remains
on the tax rolls. That's a situa-
tion that could occur even if it
were to be acquired by the
housing authority.
"Actually, it's not a regular
tax-they pay but we wouldn't
be taking it off whatever roll
they're on," she said. "It would

will rise to the top. Those who
will capture our heritage."
The museum has permanent
exhibits that outline Florida
history, primarily in the Lake
Wales Ridge, including the
time before European explo-
ration. During the season,-trav-
eling exhibits arrive every six
or eight weeks, and reproduc-
tions of Christopher Still's
murals of Florida history -
the originals are in the Florida
House of Representatives -
are on permanent display.
This will be Fitch's second
attempt to retire. His first stab
at leisure came when he retired
from his art gallery. Then he
began the quest to make a
museum, so who knows what


this retirement will bring.
"Retirement is such a fore-
boding word," he said with a
laugh. "I'm not sure how we're
going to approach it, but it's
probably much to my wife's
delight. If she finds out what
our plans are by reading about
them in the paper, well ..." and
he stopped to laugh.
"At least she won't sur-
prised," he added, "she's put
up with a lot over the years.
She's my biggest joy and num-.
ber one volunteer." '
Fitch will do fre'Tance

not become public housing."
Oldham was less certain
whether or not the building
would be subject to the Avon
Park municipal fire assessment
- something the housing
authority does not pay.

Oldham became aware of the
situation as part of the Section 8
process.
"Under the rules, they have
to tell, me when it's up for
restructuring," she said.

Ultimately, her goal is to
keep the unit functioning for
affordable housing.
"We're turning down people
daily that can't afford anything
else," she said.



Circle K

gets rush on

mistaken

gas prices

News-Sun
SEBRING Last Monday
was a busy day for the Circle K
gasoline station on Jacklin
Avenue, off Hammock Road.
It may have been the low
prices.
Manager Tim Santangelo is
laughing about it now, but, it
wasn't so funny when a line of
motorists showed up to take
advantage of the discount that
the gasoline console was offer-
ing a dollar off the price.
Santangelo said the gas sta-
tion closed after Hurricane
Jeanne since everything was
soaked. It just reopened four
weeks ago. Almost everything
was replaced, except the gaso-
line console the computer
that runs the pumps.
It was running up prices
around $1.30 on all the three
.grgaes of fuel. As of Friday,
actual prices were $2.29 for 87
ociade' '$2.30 for 89 octane and
$2.31 for 93 octane.
He doesn't know how much
the store lost last Monday, but
said it wasn't as funny as when
he heard a similar story on a
local radio station.


Street renaming insults MLK


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING While resi-
dents of Washington Heights
have to contend with all kinds
of problems from crime to irre-
sponsible landlords, one issue
has hurt more than others.
Members of the Washington
Heights Concerned Citizen's
Committee were unanimous in
their disappointment and disap-
proval of renaming a portion of
Highlands Avenue after Martin
Luther King.
The committee has collected
140 signatures on a petition to
have the street name changed.
Members are upset because
they feel the street picked
insults King's memory, and that
his name is only used on that
part of the street located in the
historically black neighbor-
hood.

"This is not a color situa-
tion," committee chairman
Robert Saffold said. "It's about
an international hero, a Nobel
Prize winner, who should have
the respect of his community.
We shouldn't need to petition,
and any street with his name
should be a tribute.
"The issue isn't that he was
black he changed America,
the education system, the judi-
cial system. His name shouldn't
be on a street where people are
shot or arrested. Think of

way that runs to Polk County
named after him, Martin Luther
King was just as important."
When the 911 project began,
the committee had hoped to get
a major artery named in King's
honor. U. S. 27 had been men-
tioned, and Memorial Drive as
well.

Jeb Bush and other members
of the Florida Cabinet honored
Gibbs and nine other fire and

ters read his list of accom-
plishments, it surprised him.
"They had a longer list than
I can remember of what I've

Sebring police department


names employees of the year


Officer Timothy
Ritenour and
records clerk Rhetta
Moore are honored
for diligent, cheerful
service
SEBRING The Sebring
Police Department has honored
two of its own.
Sebring Police Chief Tom
Dettman introduced the 2004
Officer and Civilian Employee
of the year at the Tuesday
evening Sebring city council
meeting.
Officer Timothy Ritenour
was tapped, as Officer of the
Year, while Rhetta Moore was
selected as the Civilian
Employee of the Year.
"Ritenour was recognized by
his peers during 2004 for con-
sistently going the extra dis-
tance to ensure that both his co-
workers and the community he
serves receive his prompt atten-
tion in a sincere and empathetic
manner," Dettman said.
The chief 'also noted
Ritenour's dependability.
"During the past year Officer
Ritenour was assigned to the
Patrol Division. In that capacity


Officer Ritenour demonstrated
an unyielding sense of devotion
to duty, his co-workers, and the
citizens of the community,"
said the chief.
It was Ritenour's "can-do
attitude" that earned him this
year's honors.
"He readily accepts assign-
ments that are given him and
volunteers to take assignments
for his co-workers when the
need arises," Dettman said.
The chief noted that
Ritenour's supervisors and co-
workers have recognized him in
the past for demonstrating the
character qualities of courtesy,
diligence and generosity.
Moore, the other honoree, is
a records clerk. Born in
Cambridge Md., in 1952, she
grew up in Sebring and attend-
ed E. 0. Douglas School and
Sebring High School.
After spending three years
with Barnett Bank, she found a
job in the housekeeping depart-
ment at Highlands Regional
Medical Center. Soon she was
transferred to data processing.
After leaving Highlands
Regional, Moore entered the
food service industry as part of
the management staff for a
National Food Chain where she


worked for a time.
Following a two-year hiatus,
Moore felt the desire to return
to the work force and found
herself at the Sebring Police
Department. Her initial assign
ment was as a telecommunica-
tions dispatcher.
In her current position,
Moore is responsible for main-
taining records and reports,
transcribing taped statements,
answering phones, and taking
care of people who walk up to
the records window in need of a
report or a background check.
She is the mother of one
daughter and four grandchil-
dren that she enjoys spending
time with. Moore credited her
mother for helping her become
the strong person she is today.
Dettman said that, like
Ritenour, Moore displays many
of the department's character
qualities in her day-to-day
activities in records. ,
"She is a very dependable
and generous person," he said.
"In addition, she is diligent in
her efforts to make things work
'more smoothly in her depart-
ment."
Both received standing ova-
tions from the council and the
audience.

Water management district projects

may protect County Road 621


Amendment may
save Highlands
from cost DJJ shift
By PHIL ATFINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING While the
county is still lobbying for
transportation funds to repair
County Road 621, the South
Florida Water Management
District may be able to make
drainage improvements, on the
Lake Istokpoga canal system.
Those improvements could
allow the district to release
more water in the case of a 100-
year flood event, such as last
year's hurricane season.
Missie Barletto, an SFWMD
spokeswoman, said the
Kissimmee River restoration
project could pay to add a bay
onto the S68 control structure
on the south end of the lake. It
would replace the old wooden
G85 structure on Lake
Istokpoga Canal with a new 400
cubic feet per minute structure,
to be named S67.
Together, the two changes

could help the district release an
extra 1,200 cubic feet of water
per second. The projects may
begin this year.
Also, the district will look at
ways to store water in places
other than the lake, such as
canals. If the district can help
the county- to dredge sediment
from the lake bottom, then it
may both reduce phosphorus-
rich sediments in the lake and
improve navigation, Barletto
said.

Juvenile justice
. Highlands County may get a
reprieve from paying the
Department of Juvenile Justice
for detention facilities.
Last Tuesday, the Florida
House of Representatives
added an amendment to the bill
on DJJ funding that would
exempt counties which are con-
sidered "fiscally constrained."
That would include Highlands.
"We could avoid that bullet if
it passes," County
Administrator Carl Cool said.
Negotiations have been
going on between leaders in the


state House and Senate and the
Florida Association of
Counties..
Basically, the state has con-
cluded it doesn't need 67 deten-
tion facilities one in each
county. Instead, it will keep
employees at 26 regional facili-
ties.
Highlands, Hardee and Polk
counties, for example, are
served by the juvenile detention
center in Polk County.
The Legislature will reduce
the counties' state revenue shar-
ing funds to pay for them, Cool
said, but the statewide county
contribution would only be
about $45 million.

Convention center
Cool also said Highlands
County's legislators have not
been able to raise support for a
convention center and hurri-
cane shelter at Firemen's Field.
It's in the proposed budget for
the Florida Department of
Agriculture, but there's a strong
feeling Governor Jeb Bush will
veto that line item again, Cool
said.


Denyelfe Diddle and Janice Pantoja will be the 2006 Sebring Relay for Life entertainment women.

Law Day activities begin


this week in Highlands


By BARRY FOSTER
fews-Sun
. SEBRING Even with the
looming onset of the 2005 hur-
ricane season, help continues to
flow into Highlands County in
an effort to mend broken hous-
es and broken lives left in the
wake of last year's hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne.
"We have a dozen members
of the Americorps coming in to
fielp us," said Ryan Haines of
the Heartland Emergency
Recovery Operation.
The group of volunteers will
be coming out of North
Carolina and primarily will be
doing root repani
S"There ill be some of them
that will be'doing some drywall
too,' Haines said.
And that's not all, another
group of the World Changers
will be arriving in mid-June
with a similar mission in mind.
"I think it's up to 248 for the
number of volunteers that will
be here for that week," Haines
said.
Those volunteers actually are
going to a faith camp that dis-
perses them all over the coun-
try. -


But they're not the first.
Haines said there has been a
steady stream of those willing
to help the victims of the bad
weather even though months
have passed.
"They come in from all over.
We've gotten volunteers in
from North Carolina, from
Indiana and Kentucky," he
said.
At last report, Haines said
HERO crews have done differ-
ing kinds of work on about 300
homes throughout the county.
"That's not all roofs, we've
only done about 76 roofs but
there are other needs too," he
said., .
Haines also has been receiv-
ing financial help including a
recent donation of $25,000 to
further the effort.
"They just handed me the
check and said that there were
two stipulations one, that it
was anonymous and two that it
goes to help families with chil-
dren," he said.
To that end, Haines said the
money would be targeted to
things such as beds, clothing
and formula.
"We'll probably use gift cer-


AmeriCorp is coming. this week


Special to the News-Sun
Paul Devlin, president of
Rebuilding Together Highlands
County Inc., said the 'Gold One
Team' of AmeriCorp will be
coming Wednesday to help
rehab homes.
AmeriCorp is a national
organization of volunteers who
sign up for a year to do commu-
nity service in American com-
munities. They have as their
mission "to develop leaders and
strengthen communities


through team-based national
community service."
Rebuilding Together
Highlands County, Inc. is part
of a national group that is the
nation's largest volunteer
organization preserving and
revitalizing low-income houses
and communities. Devlin says
the two organizations are a
"perfect fit."
The Gold One Team will be
in the county for six weeks.


tificates for those," he said.
The HERO organization
came together this past January
out of a meeting of the
Highlands County Unmet
Needs Committee.
"I told them that I could
serve as the project manager for
the group and at least help get it
off the ground," Haines said.
Since that time, the long term
recovery operation has been
able to combine money from a
number of different sources
including donations .from the
United Methodist Church, the
United Way and Neighbors for
Neighbors, which is tied in with,
the Church Woold L SL-l V inC ,I
organization to doWa,.wide array
of work.
"We tied that in with a com-
munity development block
grant, and money from the state
housing initiative partnership,"
he said.
The work is being done by a
combination of volunteers and
paid contractors.
"We're kind of a clearing
house because not only do we
do the material things, we're
also trying to meet the spiritual
and emotional needs," he said.
"Once they call in we try to
determine what kind of help
they need."

SEBRING Law Day is
coming a little early to
blighlands County. Although
the official observance will be
on May 1, there will be a num-
ber of events locally this week
to help people know their rights
and responsibilities in the
American system of jurispru-
dence.
The theme this year will be
The American Jury: We the
People in Action.
The first session is scheduled
to be on Florida living wills and
advance directives. Attorneys
Anthony Rittenour and Bob
Livingston will present that one
at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the
Sebring Civic Center.
"In light of recent events in
the Terri Schaivo case a lot of
people will be interested in
that," Estrada said.


At the second seminar, at
5:30 p.m. Tuesday, there will be
a seminar on unmarried parents
rights. That will be conducted
by attorneys Janette Branham
and Allison Copley. That will
cover such things as custody,
visitation and child support.
That seminar will be at the
Sebring Public Library.
There also will be a couple of
events on Thursday, April 21,
for Law Day. One will be an
invitation only luncheon with
the Highlands County Bar
Association and at an assembly
for local school children at the
Highlands County Government
Center.
4 From 2:30-3:30 p.m. that day
there will be a community
reception at the Highlands
County Courthouse. That will
be held in courtroom 1-B.
The Law Day program is set
to commence at 3:45. That's


where the youngsters get their
awards from an essay and
poster contest.

co-sponsoring their eighth annual Bill of Rights

contest will help seven young women demon-

rent issues and the U.S. Constitution, develop
their leadership skills and attend college."
"James Madison, George Mason, and dozens
of American leaders and justices since their day
have ensured Americans are protected by the Bill
of Rights," Grimsley said. "By sharing with
women lawmakers across America the stories and
legacies of these champions of liberty, young
women can have a real impact. This essay con-


test is an opportunity for young women to win a
college scholarship while making their voices
heard on the meaning of the Bill of Rights."
The essay must be postmarked by Monday,
June 13, 2005, and received by NFWL no later

Tasty lunch, big ideas


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Dr. Richard Demeri, principal of Cracker Trail Elementary
School, prepares to enjoy lunch at the Children's Advocacy
Center Thursday afternoon. District principals joined with com-
munity leaders, including County Commissioner Bob Bullard.
Sebring Mayor George Hensley and Sheriff Susan Benton, to
discuss issues concerning today's young people. Top on the list
was how to get more teens to use the confidential help hotline.
Heartland National Bank sponsored the event, providing the

Liberty Christian Academy

finds new home in Sebring


By.CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Liberty
Christian Academy, which lost
its home in Avon Park during
last year's hurricanes, has
found a new place to put down
roots.
Beginning with the next
school year, the academy will
be opening new doors at 318 S.
Commerce Ave., in the educa-
tional wing of Sebring Church
of the Nazarene.
Liberty Christian Academy
has a kindergarten through 12th
grade program, and uses the A
BEKA Book curriculum. A


BEKA provides a Christian
program with a traditional
approach. Students study with
DVDs and a facilitator.
Liberty Christian is accredit-
ed, with the Association of
Christian Schools International.
Because the academy is
moving from Avon Park to
Sebring, it has openings for the
next school year. Some new
enrolling students may qualify
for Florida Pride Scholarships,
but applications will only be
accepted through April 30.
Forms are available online at
www.floridapride.org. ..
For details call 452-0241.


Like kids?

Think bus
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING In response to
an increasingly serious short-
age of school bus drivers, the
school board voted Tuesday
night to temporarily waive the
basic employment requirement
of a high school or General
Educational Development
diploma.
Drivers would now be given
two years to earn a GED as
long as they show fluency with
language and numbers at the
time they are hired.
While this waiver is tempo-
rary, instituted to address an
immediate need, Roy Wright,
transportation coordinator,
indicated it would likely be
made permanent.
While a diploma is important
because school bus drivers are
a part of the educational sys-
tem, there are many people
who would be wonderful driv-
ers, but lack that one credential.
Wright emphasized that no
other requirements were being
waived.
All drivers must have a valid
Florida Commercial Driver's
License, Class B with passen-
ger endorsement. They must
pass a physical examination,
and complete an extensive 40-
hour training course where they
will demonstrate their ability to
read, write reports and do basic
arithmetic.
At the same time candidates
are taught to handle the special-
equipment needed to transport
handicapped students, learn
how to work with students with
disabilities, and good discipline
techniques.
Drivers must have the phys-
ical ability to inspect a bus
completely, operate all the
service doors, open and close
all the windows, implement
emergency evacuation proce-
dures, and clear a criminal his-
tory records check, and drug
screening.
The work day is typically
four and a half hours long, and
the pay is $10.69 an hour. The
district teaches a prep class for
the exam.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
A special memorial Mass for Pope John Paul II took place Friday evening at St. Catherine Catholic
Church in Sebring. The service included hymns, prayers, a reading from the writings of Pope John Paul
II: 'Love the Crucified of March 24, 1979,' and reflections on the life of the pope.


VISION
Continued from 1A
Those audience members
were given the chance, and
commended with applause, to
make general comments for
improving the mission and,
vision statements. Most com-
ments were simply made to fix
any grammatical errors or prob-
lems with sentence structure.
According -to the posters, cit-
izens are most concerned about
violent crimes, substance
abuse, traffic safety (crashes up
34 percent), and the partnership
between police and citizens.
Joining the community and law
enforcement is a task for any
sheriff's office and the rough


draft of the vision statement
acknowledges that, saying in
part, "Our vision is a safer
Highlands County where citi-
zens and law enforcement are
joined together."
When asked why she used
citizens before law enforce-
ment. Benton answered, "If you
go back all the way to the
Constitution, all of our power
and authority comes from we
the people. So really what we
even do today, that power and
authority was given to us by the
people."
Sewell then stressed the
importance of values in the
agency, saying, "How we fol-
low up truly defines our values
or can make them irrelevant."
The three main values in play


are integrity, quality service and
professionalism.
"I hope that when our staff
leaves their home or leaves
their business that those are the
things they recall, 'Man, that
deputy did a great job. He was
very professional, the service
was great and what a great per-
son,' Benton added.
"We want to make our policy
our practice. Sometimes we
will say 'I'm not going to do it
that way this week' and then
our policies aren't our practice
anymore and we can't defend
ourselves in court. That's where
professionalism comes in."
That, among other. things,
will define how the HCSO will
be perceived by the public.

gallon tanks in Sebring, and
four other 10,000 tanks, two of

Many local public safety
departments get gasoline from
the county, at slightly lower
prices.
The April 4 purchase con-
tained 23,500 gallons of diesel
fuel at $2.12 per gallonn and
20,500 6f 8X octane unleaded

Saving gas
If there's a shortfall, Sheriff
Susan Benton plans to use
internal budget amendments or
contingency funds rather than
ask .for more funds from the
county. Avon Park Police Chief
Frank Mercurio has asked his
officers to shut their cars off
when sitting and still filling out
reports or working on laptop
computers. Lake Placid Police
,Chief Phil Williams has found
laptops won't recharge in his
cars without the engines run-
ning, so that's impacting fuel
use.
Dettman may do what he did
in Palm Beach County, where
officers get out of the cars for
10-15 minutes each hour and
patrol on foot, both to save
gasoline and improve commu-
nity relations. His department
also has four bicycles, which
work well for him in the down-
town areas.
Williams said his department
uses bicycles; too, but only for
special events. They aren't
practical in Lake Placid for
patrol, he said.

Benton said. ,

SEBRING It was in 1999
that Heartland National Bank
began operations in Highlands
County. On Wednesday they
hope to open their newest
branch.
The preliminary plan is to
open up a storefront operation
in front of Sun 'N Lake. It will
be located on the access road
that parallels U.S. 27.
"Robert Palmer split his old
building into two professional
offices and we've built a branch
in the south part," said
Heartland National Bank
President Jim Clinard.
He said the local financial
institution had picked the area
specifically because of the
growth patterns in and around
Sun 'N Lake.
"There's a lot of residential
and business growth in that area
and we think there's a need for
a commercial bank and we
can service them very well," he
said.
Meanwhile, Clinard said the
long range plan is to construct a
new, stand alone full service
building. That will be located
on the access road midway
between Frames & Images and


PART
Continued from 1A
"We need sidewalks along all
the major streets for our kids to
be safe, but senior citizens need
them too," another member
John Jones III said.
Saffold is quick to point out
that he senses a subtle change
for the better in the community,
and a greater interest in prob-
lem solving.
Mayor George Hensley has
visited, and some improve-
ments were made, when the
committee invited him to a
meeting. And Sheriff Susan
Benton has kept in touch.
"We're very, very happy .with
Susan Benton," Saffold said.
"She needs time to implement


her plans. We hope her involve-
ment will draw in the Sebring
chief of police. The police
should be in the area where the
trouble is. Our mothers should
feel as safe walking here as
when they're walking down-
town."
But for all his optimism,
Saffold has doubts; he has had
to fight for too long just to be
heard. People in power would
show'up, he said, only to disap-
pear and never be seen again,
and more than once, the citizens
of Washington Heights were
promised attention from one
person or another, only to have
them never show up in the first
place.
"What we're doing is not
personal," Saffold said. "It's
about the community. I love


Sebring, but some things need
to change. I know we can do
-better."
The committee wants
Washington Heights to be apart
of the next county budget, and
plans to draw up a list of sug-
gestions that it will present to
the county commission as soon
as possible.
"We've done what we could
- inviting people who would-
n't come to us. Now we're
going to have to go to them,"
Saffold said.
In the meantime, the
Washington Heights Concerned
Citizen's Committee will con-
tinue to meet and work to find
creative solutions. What they're
hoping for is a bridge -of coop-
eration and communication.

In fact, the lot already has
been cleared and the process is
under way.
"We're going through the
environmental work and the
permitting right now," he said.
Clinard estimated it would be
a year to 18 months before the
new bank would be ready to be
occupied.
In the meantime, workers are
finishing up the new storefront
operation with a goal of a
Wednesday opening.
"Monday we're hoping to
start putting in the desks and
hooking up the computer sys-
tems," he said. "Then by
Tuesday morning we should
have a pretty nice looking
office."
Clinard said the ability to
open four branches in a six
years comes as the direct result
of support from the community.
"They have been good to us,
we've grown and people 'have
supported us and we're excited
about it," he said.
Although it will be what is
known as a "soft opening,"
Clinard hinted that there might
be some opening specials avail-
able for customers.


"We will have some incen-
tives, like on our certificates of
deposit we'll pay a quarter per-
cent over normal and on our
loans we'll charge a quarter
percent less," he said.
Described as "an independ-
ent, community bank,
Heartland National Bank was
opened Sept. 7, 1999 with
offices in Sebring, Lake Placid
and Avon Park.
Clinard said the bank's suc-
cess is hinged on the belief that
a locally managed bank could
be a tremendous asset to the
Highlands County community.
"We just feel like that in
Heartland National Bank's
world we're just very customer
service oriented and people
have come to enjoy that," he
said.
He also pointed to Heartland
National staff, noting that -as
an aggregate they have over
200 years combined experi-
ence.
The bank has a full line of
services ranging from standard
loans, savings and checking
accounts for residential and
business customers to the busi-
ness express where bankers will
pick up Sebring area deposits
daily or on a scheduled basis.

TOFFIN IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Soaring through

bi-plane

maintenance
There's something special
about small airports, and Avon
Park's is no exception.
Maybe it's the wide open
flat of the terrain, the burnt
umber of winter grass stretch-
ing out to a horizon where the
vast blue sky dips to merge
into a wavering line. Maybe
- it's the sound of the engines,
or the wind whipped silence
that follows the noise.
Maybe it's, the surprise I felt
when I drove down a road and
realized it was actually the
,runway.
Whatever it is, the place is
special.
So you have to understand
that it was even more exciting
pulling up to Walt Pierce's
hanger, and seeing his bi-plane
O1' Smokey standing proudly
in the shade. Kind of like step-
ping back into another era. I
expected to see Clark Gable
and Carole Lombard step out
of the shadows and clamor
aboard.
Regretfully, I didn't get to
fly.
This was a disappointment
because Pierce's Stearman bi-
plane has an open, cockpit, and
I have it on good authority that
riding in it, skimminig over the
open range of the county, is a
wonderful, never to be forgot-
ten experience.
Actually, the engine of the
plane was in-pieces and the
scheduled activity for that day

AVON PARK Walt Pierce has got
the bug. The flying bug that is.
From his earliest days, when he lived
near an old airplane graveyard and spent
his best time playing in the plane
remains, Pierce has been pulled to the
sky.
Sitting in classroom at age 16, he
looked out into a beautiful day, left the
building at lunch and never went back.
He considered himself a failure as a stu-
dent and couldn't focus on studies.
Instead he headed out to the airport
convinced it was there he could get his
life on track. He took a job as gofer for a
crop dusting service, used the money to
buy flying lessons, worked his way into
a career as a barnstorming pilot, and
w hle hi \ ,,'lenlooked down sincethen,
he'r ne\ cr looked back.


For more than 30 years, Pierce has
traveled to air shows all over the conti-
nental United States, performing acro-
batic routines only 500 feet away of his
audience. He has traveled up to 2,000
miles in a week in his Stearman bi-plan.e,
which has a 450 horse power Pratt &
Whitney engine and travels at 100 miles
an hour.
That's important because Pierce flies
his plane to wherever he is going to per-
form. This means organizations that hire
his services also have to pay for the trip
out and back.
Pierce acknowledges that the mileage
fees are killing the business, just doing
his routine uses a gallon of fuel a minute,
at a cost of $3.50 a minute. "It's a
shame." Pierce said. "but oil companies

Walt Pierce has been flying high for most of his life. He performs acrobatic routines in
a 65-year-old bi-plane at air shows, sometimes with wing walker Melissa Hawks along
for the ride.


the Highlands County area. Pierce has
been one of them for more than 30 years.
He arrived here from Texas, having lived
in California and.New Mexico. He was
20 years old at the time, drawn to Florida
because he was a pilot, and pilots who
want to make a living flying have to live
where it's done year round.
But barnstorming is a tough living and
usually needs to be augmented. Pierce
tried teaching flying, but he disliked it.
He used to crop dust, but that's no longer
done here. Instead, he works part time at
the Jet Center to help keep his beloved
plane off the ground.
Thie-Stearman, which he -calIs 01'
Smokey, is the love of his life. He has


restored it back to it's original condition
as much as possible, changing out plas-
tic for leather and finding period gauges.
For some routines, Melissa Hawks,
who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, joins
him as a wing walker. Wing walkers are
those, probably seriously deranged, indi-
viduals who stand on the wing of a plane
while it spins in the sky.
Women, Pierce said, make the best,
wing walkers because they are small,
have a longer attention span than men,
and are not driven by testosterone or too
much adrenaline.
Pierce can be reached by telephone at
(866) 450-1930. He has a Web site at.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Licensed esthetician Glenda Herron performs a skin care technique known as microderm abrasion on
Dianne Susdorf's face recently at Jeanette's Beauty Salon in Sebring.


Glenda Herron Skin Care relocates


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Glenda Herron
Skin Care relocated from Dr.
Ike Lee's Medical Building to
inside Jeanette's Salon at 6217
U.S. 27 North, just south of Sun
'N Lake Boulevard.
Herron offers European-style
facials, which start at $40.
They're not only relaxing, but
also deep cleansing.
"It's nice to treat yourself
special with a facial or to give a
gift certificate to a loved one to
be pampered," Herron said.
Generally the facials cleanse,
scrub, exfoliate, and steam.
Then unique masks for a per-


son's specific skin type are
applied. Later a person is mas-
saged with creams and serums
to restore their skin which
tones, lifts, revitalizes and
moisturizes, making it healthier
and glowing.
Herron also offers micro-der-
mabrasion, which is a non-inva-
sive, non-surgical procedure
using a highly controlled spray
of fine crystals to remove the
outer layer of skin and reveal a
younger, tighter, and more radi-
ant skin underneath.
"It's the ultimate facial. Of
course when people undergo a
series of treatments, they get


greater results," Herron said. "It
decreases fine lines, sun dam-
age, age spots and acne scars.
This skin-freshening technique
helps repair the effects of aging
and the beating we take from
the sun. It helps you look and
feel younger."
Jeanette's Salon is full serv-
ice, offering manicures, pedi-
cures, complete hair services,
waxing and massage (by
appointment.)
Glenda Herron's Skin Care is
by appointment only and can be
scheduled by calling her direct-
ly at 381-7078 or the salon at
386-5126.


Convicted swindler sheds light


on various investment scams

Investigators from my office recent-
ly attended a training seminar in which
a convicted swindler was a guest
speaker. This person was a stockbroker
who went to prison for pulling a Ponzi.
scheme. Here's how he did it along
with some lessons to be learned.
First, Mr. Swindler dreamed up a .
unique business concept, cryogenically
freezing blood to be stored for later CONS
medical uses by the donor. To appear Ouri
legitimate Mr. Swindler purchased a
shell company incorporated a few M
years earlier. The shell had a stock Math
trading symbol but no assets. Its name _
and symbol were its only value. This
gave the impressions that the company was
around longer than it actually was.
To raise capital Mr. Swindler sold nine month
promissory notes. He chose nine month notes to
take advantage of loopholes in the state and fed-
eral securities laws. He relied upon an exemption.
from registration to avoid regulatory scrutiny and
red tape. To entice investors he offered higher
than average rates of return op the promissory
notes. The notes were unsecured and risky.
Investors believed they were insured and safe.
He assured investors the business would be
successful and profitable. In retrospect he
acknowledges the business was "designed to fail"
because it was impossible to make profits in nine
months, the period of time in which the promis-
sory notes would come due. He relied on funds
from investors to make interest payments to other
investors, the tell-tale sign of a classic Ponzi
scheme.
Mr. Swindler also needed a sales force because
"no one can spend all their time on the phone."
He hired "rogue" insurance agents who did no
due diligence and were persuaded by large com-
mission checks. The insurance agents raised mil-
lions. Most victims were senior citizens con-
vinced to roll over their annuity investments into
the venture.
In total, less than ten consumers actually
signed up to have their blood cryogenically pre-
served. The business was a bust. The Florida
"laboratory" closed down and the media publi-
cized its demise! Soon, investigations were com-

was working on it. So, I got to
help clean an oil screen.
Not that cleaning the oil
screen was boring, it wasn't.
But you have to admit it does-
_ n't quite haye the panache ..
soaring through the air does.
In any case, there we were,
the only people in sight, servic-
ing Pierce's 65-year-old air-
plane, out in a hanger at the
back of the airport.
The Stearman has a radial
engine, which means the cylin-
ders form a circle, called the
power pack. The energy creat-
ed by the power pack is trans-
ferred to the propeller in its
center.
Behind the power pack, is a
circle of supporting tubing and
wires, including the plug to the
oil reserve. The oil passes
through a cylindrical screen
which is designed to trap metal
filings..
It turns out that those filings,
some hard to see, some larger,
are important clues to engine
wear.
Radial engines are hard on
component parts, wear is
inevitable. It's how the wear is
occurring, and at what rate, and
with which part, that guides the
maintenance schedule.
Pierce was checking the oil
screen in other words, to see
about the condition of his
engine.
So. The propeller is the
plane's foremost point, and the


power pack is directly behind
the propeller. Directly behind
the power pack, that is a cowl
which is fastened down with
four large and six small screws
(the cowl is a hinged cover,
which is curved to fit the
plane's form. When released it
folds up, like a car's hood).
The, screws,,by the way, are
attached to the plane's fuselage
and are spring loaded, so when
I loosened them they popped


up, but stayed in place.
With the cowl removed,
Pierce mounted a light so we
could see what we were doing.
Space is at a premium, with
no knuckle room at all.
Which was one reason I was
slow in cutting through a safety
wire which acted as back up
security) foruhe oil drain's.plug.
Using wire cutterCsI had to
thread the tool around, behind
and over snaking hoses, wires

menced into the business and the
promissory note program. Mr.
) Swindler was exposed and eventually
plead guilty to criminal charges.. He
received over three years in prison, did
his time'and was released.
,. Although Mr. Swindler was ordered
to pay restitution, the reality is that he
will never earn enough money in his
UMER lifetime to pay back investors. Here are
EACH some lessons learned and a few obser-
vations.
rk Today, "the Internet is the new sales
sian force" said Mr. Swindler. You receive
Sf all kinds of bogus investment opportu-
nities in your e-mail. To combat this,
you should buy anti-spamming software and
ignore investment come-ons.
Investors in his operation were told the invest-
ment was risk free. If they read the offering
prospectus (those who received it) they would
have learned they could lose all their money if the
business wasn't successful. He also said, accu-
rately so, that most investors didn't read the
prospectus and took the promises of sales people
on face value. Receiving higher than average
returns assured the prospectus would not be read.
Investors were also told the promissory notes
were independently insured. Not so. In reality,
Mr. Swindler owned the off-shore insurance
company. A little investigating would have
revealed the insurance company wasn't licensed
to do business in the U.S.
Another red flag was that other states issued
cease and desist orders (C&Ds) against Mr.
Swindler and his business. These public docu-
ments were available to anyone who asked for
them.
The message in this story? Do your research
before investing. Remember, that there are no risk
free investments, only investments with varying-
degrees of risk. Finally, if a deal sounds too good
to be true then it probably is.

Karen Adler

and

Judith Fertig


"BBQ Queens" appears
every other Wednesday
exclusively in the News-Sun
Lifestyle section.


Karen Adler, author and
instructor, is the
president/owner of Pig Out
Publications Inc., which has
published more than 200
books on barbecue and
grilling. She has appeared on
televised cooking demonstra-
tions. She also teaches classes
Throughout the country and spe-
cializes in outdoor cooking.


Judith Fertig, writer and cook-
book author, specializes in
Midwestern cuisine, and is inter-
nationally published, as well as a

regular featured columnist for the Kansas City Star.


The BBQ Queens just wrote and published the "BBQ Queens-Big
Book of Barbecue" (Harvard Common Press). This cookbook, which
became available in April, brings a distinctively female perspective
to the art of barbecue. The BBQ Queens take a fresh look at their
power of outdoor cooking, harnessing it to create practical, deli-
cious meals with a relaxed attitude.
The "BBQ Queens Fish & Shellfish Grilled & Smoked" (Harvard
Common Press, 2002) offers 300 recipes for grilled, planked, and
smoked fish and seafood.


Both cookbooks, and others, are available at bookstores
everywhere. For more details about the BBQ Queens, visit their
Web site at www.bbqqueens.com.

Pick irreversiblee' with great care


There is a way that
seems right to a man,
But its end is the way
of death. Proverbs
14:12 (NKJV)
If I were asked
what I felt was the
best advice a geezer
such as I could give to

a young person it would. be:
"Pick your irreversibles with
great care!"
It would be great if we could
live a life keeping all options
open, but this is not possible.
We are confronted in life with
two kinds of decisions:
reversible and irreversible.
If I begin a course of study
and then find it is not a good
career decision for me, I can
back it out and head in another
direction. If I buy a car and
decide I don't like it I can trade
it in on something different. If I
marry a girl and produce chil-
dren (and nowadays the order
may be the opposite), I have
created a situation that is irre-
versible. Oh, we could divorce,
but we could never get back to
our original uncompl'icated
lives.
I read of a lovely young girl
who was constantly being chid-
ed by her peers for her virginity,
in these enlightened times. Her
response was, "Look, I can


A look at Social

Security's fall

Editor:
It is amazing how logical
Dick Morris' rationale is for
Americans to make their own
individual choices concerning
their Social Security benefits. If
they could choose early on how
their individual private
accounts were formulated, they
would benefit from that choice.
Mr. Morris had pointed out
the plight of the Social Security
Fund; however, he neglected to
clarify how the fund became a
crisis andignored that tens of
millions of Americans did
choose their retirement pro-
grams.,
First, Congress had decimat-
ed the Social Security Fund by
spending surplus funds. If that
surplus since 1981 had
remained in the Social Security
Fund, there would be $20 tril-
lion in the fund.
Second, Congress passed
laws in the '50s/'60s so people
who worked 20-40 years would
be vested in pensions.
Previously, workers had put in
20-40 years, but received no,
pension because they were laid
off three to six months, hired
again, but lost eligibility.
Today, workers are vested after
five years.
Third, Congress protected
workers and enacted legislation
to establish chosen programs
whereby workers could gain
benefits in place of salary rais-


become like you are
HOTS OF anytime I want to; but
you can never again
UTH become like I am."
-. In my time I have.
rnneth said, "I do," to two
inum wonderful women. In
-- each case, I knew up
front it was an irre-
versible decision and in each
case it was a good one. The
present divorce rate shows that
in many cases it's a bad one.
True, future problems cannot
always be foreseen, but
upstream thought and prayer
might have helped.
For many, not all, that first
drink turns out to be the gate-
way to a life of alcoholism.
Also, here in Florida, where
all public buildings are smoke-
free I often see people sitting
out in the cold and rain "enjoy-
ing" a cigarette. When they
took the first one they didn't
realize that for them it was a
bad irreversible. They're
hooked on one of the most
addictive drugs we have.
If you ask them, they'll tell
you, "I can quit whenever I
want to." Few manage it.
When I still had working legs
I used to deliver Meals on
Wheels. One place we served
was the home of a retired Army
nurse, a woman of some past


es, pensions, health care, insur-
ance, etc. ("individual private
accounts") for future retire-
ment. These funds went swim-
mingly well until President
Reagan allowed corporate
executives to reduce them.
Fourth, Junk Bonds/corpo-
rate takeovers. Pension
Reserve Funds paid for those
Junk Bonds.
Fifth, in 2001, Wall Street
ripped off the economy and 100
million people to the tune of $7
trillion: loss of jobs, pensions,
health care, 401Ks, stocks,
insurance, etc.
,Sixth, Congress starting with
President Reagan, allowed cor-
porations to outsource millions
of jobs offshore and subsidized
that transfer with taxpayer
funds. Not only that, it allowed
these corporations to take their
"profits" offshore to avoid
taxes (Social Security) and still
compete for government con-
tracts without penalty. Offshore
corporations always underbid
mainland U.S. corporations.
Seventh, to add insult to
injury, Congress and President
Bush have allowed, corpora-
tions to eliminate more pension
funds, disenfranchising those
"guaranteed benefits" from
decades past, eliminating those
"chosen retirement programs"
30 to 50 years in the making.
It would be most useful if
Mr. Morris and President Bush
presented this entire history
concerning Social Security and
retirement programs.

distinction. On the door was a
sign saying,"Oxygen in use."
Inside lay a wreck of a woman
with a cannula in her nose,
smoking a cigarette!. Shortly
after that, when we arrived, she
was gone and her brother was
clearing out her effects.
Today, tragically for so many
of the young, that first experi-
ment with dope, "Just to see
what it's like," turns out to be
the end of a useful life. What
can one do, what can one say, to
stop them.
All I can say to them is be
very careful with your irre-
versibles!

So if you see a wife or mom
giving the car a faraway look,
you might think about giving
her a short break from the rou-

feel better, but you will find
she's a lot easier to live with.
And if she wants a book to

LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


Running


away
I've been doing a bunch of
reading lately. Of course, peo-
,ple who know me are probably
scratching their heads and ask-
ing what is new about that? So
allow me to elaborate.
I am slated to attend a
writer's workshop in May. As a
condition of being accepted
into the workshop, I had to
agree to absorbing seven books
from a reading list. Since the
focus of the workshop is short
stories, it should come as no
surprise to anyone that I am
reading bunches of short sto-
ries.
For the most part, this is a lot
of fun for me. It's like telling a
chocoholic to chow down on
their Easter candy. Any time
people think I'm wasting time
with my nose in a book, I can
justify myself by saying that
it's assigned reading. Not all of
it has been great there are
some of these stories so far that
I frankly had to force myself to
finish and look forward to
make scathing remarks about
come workshop time but
over all it has been a pleasant
task.
As I was plowing through
numerous types of stories, I
read one in which a woman,
who was fed up with a good
part of her life, simply left it
behind. Drove away and did
not willingly look back (she
wound up having to look back,
but that's not my point at the
moment), She changed her last
name, dipped into her savings
and started life over again in a
new place, with new people.
I ponder that for a bit. Now
don't get me wrong: I like my
life very much thank you and
would no sooner walk away
from it permanently than I
would sprout wings and fly.
But honesty compels me to
admit there are times that run-
ning away from home- seems
mighty tempting.
You probab y know the
times of which I speak, espe-
cially if you are a mom. Days
when you 'wonder if you
dropped dead who would load
the dishwasher, let the dog out,
or fold the laundry. Days when
it occurs to you that no matter
how many times you clean the
house it will get messy again.
Days when the sibling rivalry
gets to a point you want to
donate the kids to your favorite
charity (or would that be your
unfavorite charity?). Days
when you are just tired of the
whole routine you are in.
So you think about hopping
in your car and heading some-
place else preferably some-
place that has room service.
You dream of lazy days by the
water, no one arguing about
who gets the .front seat, no
responsibilities. You might
even go as far as to head for the
car.
But you know you can't.
There's the kids to pick up and
wash to do and dinner to fix
and that person you promised
to call. Our sense of responsi-
bility rears up and checks us
before we give in to our
destructive impulses.
So we make substitutions.
We send out for pizza. We rent
a movie. We play video games.
Maybe we grab a book and sit
in a corner at a restaurant. We
ask everyone to leave us alone,
just for an afternoon. Or we call
a girlfriend and cry on each
others shoulders. More often
than not, these tactics appease
that part of us that want to head
off into the sunset, and we are
ready to tackle life anew.
You see, in the end, most of
us don't really want to leave -
we just want to rest, a time to
think of ourselves instead of
others, a time to recharge bat-
teries that have been depleted
with filling needs. A time of

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
April 11, 1995: With the
championship of Heartland
Conference tennis coming
down to one final doubles
match, Lake Placid's Bart
Hatton smashed a forehand
winner to earn victory for
himself and Robbie Keefe
against Sebring's Tony
Block and Erik McGuire 6-3,
2-6, 6-1.

20 Years Ago
April 11, 1985: A two-run
homer by Byron Chapman,
a bases-loaded triple by
Steve. Holt and a Jason
Roulette double were the
only three hits for Lake
Placid in a 14-8 loss to
Okeechobee. The 14 hits
Lake Placid gave up came
on the heels of an Andy
Tuck two-hitter against
Moore Haven just 48 hours
earlier.

Panthers beat Broward on last swing


Graeser delivers game-winning hit in 9th


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK This time, the ninth-
inning comeback belonged to the
Panthers.
After being one out from victory in a
loss to Indian River on Wednesday,
SFCC was one out from defeat Friday
when the Panthers rallied for four hits
and two runs in a 7-6 triumph against
visiting Southern Conference foe
Broward.
"We've missed a few opportunities in
ballgames like this the last week or week
and a half," SFCC head coach Rick Hitt
said. "Going into the ninth, if we could
keep it to one run, I just felt like they
weren't going to be denied, and by God,
they weren't."
After Seahawks reliever Bret Cannon
(2-2) struck out the first two batters in
the ninth, Jimmy Miles and Brad Crone
struck for hits to set up Jesse Litsch, who-
singled home the tying run, and Tim
Graeser, who delivered the game-win-
ning single into right on an 0-2 pitch.
"It was huge for Brad and for Jesse to
get on like that and for Jimmy to score,
because once you're tied, you've got all
kinds of momentum (and) you've got
nothing to lose," Graeser said. "I kind of
tried to do too much on the first couple
of pitches, but when I got the two strikes
I just wanted to make contact some-
where, and I was glad I was able to do


Graeser helped make a winner of
reliever David Kellerberg (3-1), who
shut down the Seahawks (26-13, 9-6 in
the conference) after they had rallied
against starter Andy Polk. Marcos
Batista topped off his 3-for-4 evening
with a two-run single to center that gave
Broward a 6-5 lead in the eighth.
"I'd been running it in there all night
and having success, and I made a bad
pitch at a bad time and he hit it, so (my)
hat's off to him," Polk said.
"It was one of those scenarios where

he still had good stuff, and
he'd done a good job
against Batista all night,
and I thought the matchup
was in our favor," Hitt
said. "Our guy made a
nitch, their guv made a


swing, andthat's the way baseball is."
Still, Hitt was pleased with Polk and
the rest of the Panthers (30-19-1, 5-9) for
simply doing what it takes to win.
"It was a good ball game, to be honest
with you," he said. Polkie battled for us,
and the hitters swung the bat."
Miles, who hit a two-run homer in the
first, and Crone both went 3-for-5, while
Litsch was 2-for-5 with a home run that
hit the scoreboard in the fifth. While the
heaviest hit belonged to Broward's
Justin Ferreira, who hit a towering blast
to left in the second, the long-ball dis-
play was a mere backdrop to a series of
unusual and disputed calls.


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
SFCC's Josh Welkes dives into third base as Broward's Nick Roxby awaits the throw
on Friday.


SFCC had a run taken off the board
after it was ruled Trey Cleveland swung
on a third strike that wound up going to
the backstop and appeared to have
scored Josh Welkes from third, while


Broward head coach Bob Deutschman
was prompted to file a protest after an
earlier obstruction call.

10-3A victory

FROSTPROOF Call it
reverse psychology.
Lake Placid coach Dan
Coomes put his Dragons
through less batting practice
heading into Friday night's
District 10-3A game at
Frostproof, and his hitters
responded with four doubles
among their eight hits for a 6-
2 win.
Coomes said the Dragons,
who improved to 9-8 overall,
and 3-4 in the district, have

been having bet-
ter workouts the
past few days,
which translated
into Friday's
improved per-
formance at the


plate.
"We've been having better
practices and I believe that
helped us a little bit," Coomes
said. "We've been working
real hard in practice ... and
we've actually cut down on
our batting practice. I just told
them we've got to start seeing
the ball. Tonight, we saw the
ball better. We didn't chase a
lot of pitches out of the strike
zone and I was happy about
that."
Coomes was also happy
with the aggressiveness the
Dragons showed on defense
despite making three errors.

was we made a couple of
errors where we were trying to
make plays," he said. "It's not
like we were sitting back on
balls when we ,made those
mistakes. We were trying to
make plays. That is different
than we've done in the last
three or four weeks."
Steven Levine had two of
the Dragons' doubles in back-
to-back ,plate appearances,
driving in runs both times as
Lake, Placid put together two-
run rallies in the second, third


and fourth innings.
After two errors and two
wild pitches allowed Josh
McKee and Josh Myers to
score in the second, Levine
followed Ryan Smallwood's
bunt single with a drive into
left-center for his first double
and a 3-0 lead. Levine then
scored on a bad throw follow-
ing his steal of third.
Myers singled and scored
on P.J. Milisci's double down
the right-field line, and Levine
drove in Milisci one out later


with a double to right to make
it 6-0.
The extra-base hits gave
starting right-hander Eddie
Peifer plenty of cushion to
work with, which proved to be
a good thing when he ran into
trouble with his control after
holding the Bulldogs (1-12) to
just one baserunner over the
first three innings.

Bo knows

how to make

a good denial
Not since Sonny Bono
appeared in one of his Nike
commercials has the legend of
Bo Jackson been so egregious-
ly encroached upon.
Jackson, who 15 years ago
was probably as popular and
recognizable any athlete in the
country, re-emerged from rela-
tive obscurity this week to
vehemently deny steroid use
alleged in a story appearing in
a California newspaper that is
now the subject in a defama-
tion lawsuit filed by the former
two-sport star.
If only Mark McGwire
could have been half as forth-
coming.
"I wouldn't know what a
steroid looked like if you put it
in an enema and shoved it up
my nose," Jackson was quoted
as saying Wednesday in the
Daily Herald, a newspaper that
covers suburban Chicago,
where the suit was filed.
The publication at the center
of the controversy, the Inland
Valley Daily Bulletin based in

Special to the News-Sun
BRASELTON, Ga. -
American Le Mans Series
(ALMS) and Hollywood fans
know Patrick Dempsey from
the 1980s movie "Can't Buy
Me Love," his Emmy-nominat-
ed stint on the hit show "Will
and Grace" as well as his per-
formance in the blockbuster hit
"Sweet Home Alabama" among
many acting performances. In
addition, Dempsey is starring in
a new television show on ABC
with "Grey's Anatomy."
What many do not realize is
that the actor has caught racing
L fever. While growing up,
Dempsey learned to love racing
by following the example of his'
Father and watching the biggest
racing events whenever they
were televised.
On rare occasions, he had the
chance to attend the actual
events that he and his father
found so compelling. Launched
into the acting world, his pas-
sion for racing was finally
rekindled by his wife.
"She told me to get up off the
couch and start doing some rac-
ing," Dempsey said. "So I start-
ed out at the Skip Barber three-
day competition as a result of a
d s Christmas present. That opened
ders the gates because I found the
experience to be so much fun
and as a result, something I
wanted to pursue."
Dempsey was .at the right
S- place at the right time when he
- traveled to Atlanta for a charity
*. event. Among the distinguished
guests were Don Panoz,
founder of the ALMS, and his
son Dan, President of Panoz
Auto Development. Dempsey
soon found himself getting the
"Panoz Experience" by touring
the many Panoz organizations
just north of Atlanta. This led to
his purchase of a Panoz


'It's our goal to please

the racers, the fans and

have myself as an actor

.... challenged as well. It's

also a great excuse to go racing.'

PATRICK DEMPSEY


Esperante and entry in the
Panoz Racing School.
"That whole experience real-
ly launched me onto the fast
track of doing some racing,".
Dempsey commented. "I start-
ed getting hard core into racing
last year and decided that I
wanted to continue it as a seri-
ous hobby.
"It's a great way to relax and
just sort of detox from the
Hollywood scene. The com-
radery and the people that I
have met especially around the
American Le Mans Series have
made racing even more satisfy-
ing."
The actor is making plans for
a motion' picture based on the
ALMS. He is currently in the
process of finalizing a script
about a journeyman racer over-
coming the politics of racing,
the aspects of preparing the car
properly, the realities of having
teammates and the added drama
of a long distance marriage.
"We are working on a script
based in and around the
American Le Mans Series and
we are really close to finishing
it,"' Dempsey said. "I am trying
to give it a well-rounded feel as
well as portraying the racing
world as accurately as possible.
It is going to be a nice mixture
of both.
"What we are trying to go for


here is all of the great things
that "Le Mans" was about when
Steve McQueen made that
movie. In our talks with Danny
Panoz, we are going to use the
Panoz Esperante as the feature
car in the movie. It's our goal to
please the racers, the fans and
have myself as an actor chal-
lenged as well.
"It's also a great excuse to go
racing."
Dempsey has found out that
you don't have to look far in
order to find an excuse to go
racing. His experiences with the
Panoz family and the ALMS
have certainly sparked the
desire to continue. Who knows,
the actor may end up on the
track with the drivers of the
ALMS, competing in the
world-class sports car racing
series.
"I would like to race and be
competitive," said Dempsey. "I
think that if I can do that then I
will be satisfied. You know it's
an addiction, certainly. Once
you start, you have to get that
fix which is to go racing. I
would like to keep going and be
part of a team and develop my
skills as a race driver. I have
tremendous respect for what
these drivers are doing and I
want to earn my way."

BO
Continued from 1B
Ontario, Calif., appears to have
the kind of credibility that
would make Jose Canseco
believable by comparison, par-
ticularly given the revelation of
videotape evidence.
The California paper cov-
ered an address by a dietary
expert named Ellen Coleman,
who provided Jackson's
lawyer, Dan Beiderman, with a
tape of her speech at The Sport
Clinic in Riverside, Calif.
According to Coleman and
the Jackson camp, at no time
does she say "Bo Jackson lost
his hip because of anabolic -
abuse," which is a quote attrib-
uted to her in the 10th para-
graph of the Bulletin's story.
Suddenly, a buried lead is
the least of the paper's worries.
Strangely enough, Jim


Mohr, who was listed as a staff
writer at the time he wrote the
Jackson story, has since been
elevated to Bulletin sports edi-
tor. Yet he, the newspaper, its
parent company, and three
other staffers have been named
in the suit.
Steve Lambert, editor of
both the Bulletin and The Sun
of San Bernardino, Calif., said
the newspaper was "still inves-
tigating the situation."
Yet the statement Coleman
is alleged to have made is so
off-base, given that we all saw
the tackle that injured
Jackson's hip while he was
playing for the Raiders against
Cincinnati in a 1991 playoff
game, that any editor should
have red-flagged the report and
given the story a further look
before it was published.
Jackson is right not only to
challIfte'What appears to be a


vicious fabrication but also to
take the opportunity to clarify,
in no uncertain terms, that he
never took steroids.
"I've got nothing to hide,"
Jackson said in an Associated
Press story. "If anyone wants
to check into my medical past,
go get blood tests, go check up
on those blood tests and see if
there was any anabolic steroids
in it. You're more than wel-
come."
The court of public opinion
has strung up Mark McGwire
for dodging the issue in last
month's Congressional hearing
on steroids, and Jackson was
smart enough to learn from it.
In issuing a pointed, no-
holds-barred denial, he proved
Bo Knows Media better than
the media itself.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER


Jan Merop

Ever been this

way before?
I remember when the
inclination to adapt some of
my columns for a book went
from a seed thought to a
maturing root taking hold in
my heart.
As excited as I felt about
the prospect, fear of the
unknown wound its uninvit-
ed tendrils into the garden of
my heart like weeds trying
to choke out what would
eventually grow and blos-
som.
Self-publishing took me
down a road that I had never
been before. It became an
overgrown forest in my mind
as I tried to understand the
lingo of the industry. I recall
that one night I cried out to
God and said, "I can't do
this."
His answer surprised me.
"Yep!"
And suddenly, I realized
that I needn't worry. God
had been preparing me for
this moment. I may not have
been this way before, but
since God was directing me,
he would go before me. My
job was simply to follow.
Those memories resur-
faced recently as I read about
how Joshua led the Israelites
into the promised land after
Moses died. He must have
wondered how he could ever
fill such big sandals.
But his preparation for this
moment had been ongoing.
God quickly reassured
Joshua,
"Be strong and coura-
geous. Do not be terrified; do
not be discouraged, for the
Lord your God will be with
you wherever you go."
(Joshua 1: 9, NIV)
God had made his
-- d%%dlling place among the
people of Israel in the ark of.
the covenant. When it was
time to go into the unknown,
God instructed Joshua to
have the priests carry the ark
of the covenant ahead of
them. They were to leave
enough space between them-
selves and the ark so that
they could follow it.
"Then you will know
which way to go, since you
have never been this way
before." (Joshua 3: 4, NIV)
In preparation, the people
were to consecrate them-
selves to the Lord set
themselves apart for his pur-
pose.
As I look back upon some
of the twists and turns of
learning about self-publish-
ing; and, discerning when
other opportunities were
crowding me and taking my
focus off the task at hand,
two questions come to mind.
Do I leave God enough
room to lead when I know
he's directing me patiently
waiting so that I can follow
into places I've not been
before? Do I consecrate
myself for his purpose?
When I didn't leave him
enough room, I felt crowded
and experienced unrest.
When I returned to his rest,
he showed me the way to go
evei though I'd never been
that way before.
Now that the book, "Pause
& Consider," is published;
once again, I have not passed
this way before and am
walking by faith, trusting
S him to lead. But, I'm mar-
veling at how God brought
that tiny seed thought to
fruition.
Ever been this way
before? When facing untried
paths, let's give the Lord the
necessary room to go before
us so that we can truly fol-
low. Selah.

Women d raw to


'Here I am again Lord' Ladies


Retreat coming to Lake Placid


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
f you feel like you're going
round and round the same moun-
tain having a heart for God,
but unable to live for him then
you can identify with the theme
of this ladies retreat, "Here I am again
Lord." '
Sherry White Ministries is coming to
the Lake Placid Conference Center May
13-15. White will present a getaway
that will help women draw closer to'
God and live a victorious Christian life.
She recently appeared on Christian
Television Network where Arthelene
Rippy of the "Homekeepers" show
interviewed her about her ministry and
this particular conference.
"I want to teach women to lift up
their heads and eyes spiritually and
focus on the awesome power of God,"
White said.
This will be done in several ways. A
comedy team of women the Deen
Sisters will open the morning and
evening sessions.
"After a side-splitting time of laugh-
ter, we will enter a time of worship
through the anointed ministries of
Jessie Rogers Goodman and Christi
Cole," White said.
Goodman, from Lakeland, has trav-
eled abroad and was one of the worship
leaders of the Brownsville revival. She
is a young girl with a powerful ministry
and will be there with her band on
Friday night.
Cole is from Tallahassee. She has
periodically appeared on television and
is getting ready to go national.
After worship will come a time of
teaching from God's Word followed by
prayer.
"I believe that this will be a divine
appointment for many women," White
said, "and there will be special times of
prayer for th6se who desire it."

Sherry White's journey
A local Wauchula/Avon Park resi-
dent, White has been singing gospel
music since she was 18 years old. She
sang at every fair, festival, church,
funerals and weddings wherever and
whenever the opportunity presented
itself.
Then, after experiencing a divorce,
she moved to Nashville, Tenn. where
she worked in Christian TV. She even
got signed to an'independent record
label and took her music and speaking
ministry throughout the Southeast at
various churches.
After four years in Christian televi-
sion, God made it abundantly clear to
her to walk away from it and go into
full-time evangelism.
"Now I go into prisons and drug
rehabilitation centers. Once a week on
Thursday evenings, I hold services for
at-risk young ladies 12 to 18-years-old
who are locked away for 10 months."
White shares her story, God's Word
and the absolute hope that is found in
God.
In her book, "A Life Worth Living,"


Sherry White introduces her new book,
'A Life Worth Living,' to-a local
audience.

(available locally at Blessings Christian
Book Stores or on White's Web site:
www.swministries.com), White recounts
in detail the deep hurts and abuses she
suffered in her life's journey, which
included divorce and single parenting
for 11 years.
"I feel that the call of my life is to
share what a messed-up person I was
and how God delivered me. God is no
respecter of persons and I'm eager to
share about his power to-heal and trans-
form lives."
She remarried in 2001 and now, she
and her husband, Mark, share in min-
istry. He lived most of his adult hfe as
an alcoholic and together they Teach
out to those who are hurung. Mark
steps behind the scenes running sound,
etc. when she steps out and ministers to
women.
"There is no issue too deep for God.
He will make the crooked path
straight," White said.

Unlocking strongholds
White knows what it is to keeping
going around the same ole mountain
over and over. She has lived it and she
watches women sitting in the church
pews trying to do it on their own. Their
hearts are in the right places, but they
aren't able to put it together practically.
"I want to teach women how to break
through to speak to that mountain in
their lives instead of going around it
again and again. Instead of feeling worn
and depressed.
"There is as much divorce in the'
church as in the world. There are as
many people on anti-depressants in the
church as outside. This shouldn't be.
Not when we have the answer," White
said, with enthusiasm ringing in her
voice.
Through the ladies retreat, White
wants to teach women how to apply
biblical principals to their everyday sit-
uations that will help them overcome.
Providing that answer has become a

burning passion for her. She wants to
reach out, especially to women. Thus,
the retreat.

The birth of a ladies retreat
While White's heart was on fire to
develop a special time for women to
come away from distractions and rou-
tines and focus solely on the Lord, she
drove by'a sign that caught her atten-
tion.
The Lake Placid Conference Center
magnetically pulled her to investigate
and when she drove by, "I just knew
that I knew I should do this."


Consequently, she made plans with
the conference center, which will pro-
vide six country-style meals and two
nights of conference-style lodging,
Simply put, the lodging is in bunk beds
with six to 12 women per room. Every
effort will be made to accommodate the
needs of older ladies who will be given
the lower bunks.
"We have to bring our own linens -
sheets, pillows, towels, washcloth and
soap," White said.
But the secluded atmosphere on Lake
Placid and the fun of rooming with
friends will make up for any lack of -
hotel-like accommodations.
White urges ladies to make their
plans early so that they can room with :,
friends, have special needs met and
receive their confirmation letters in
plenty of time for the retreat. :|
Some ladies have asked if they can
come and go since they live nearby. Bu
White discourages this. I !
"The whole purpose of the retreat is
to break away from the distractioris of
our regular responsibilities. We want
the ladies to come and be saturated by
God's Word and power. Leaving and
coming back will water down the
impact." 4
Staying also will provide the ladies
time for rest, sitting on the dock by the
lake or taking relaxing walks on the
conference property. It's also an oppor-
tunity to bond with other women.
As White said, "If you are tired of
going around the same ole mountain,
this retreat is for you."


Mark White runs the sound equipment for his wife during her presentations.

Getting 'bogged' down in the history of books


So, who can remember their
Latin? Tell me what the word
"liber" means.
What is really interesting is
that Latin word can mean both
"free" or "book." I think it
describes a library to a "T";
after all, your library has lots of
books, and library cards are
free.
National Library Week is
April 10-16, and what better
time is there to come down to
your local library? Whether
you live in Okeechobee,
Hardee, DeSoto, or Highlands
counties, there is a free lending
library near you.
Your Heartland Library
Cooperative was formed to
allow residents of all four coun-
ties to freely borrow from each
of the six libraries using the
same library card, and to have
on-line access to a virtual card
catalog and to their own patron
record. Our Heartland courier
travels between the libraries
five days a week, just to hurry
your reserved items right to
your local library.
Nowadays, books come in
many forms. You may find
your favorite author on a CD, in
large print, regular print, cas-
sette tape, or on the Internet in
the form of an electronic book
or "E-book."
These formats are. easier to


read than the first
books, which were
written on clay
tablets or birch bark.
The ancient
Mesopotamians had
access to one library,
in which, before its
destruction, had
amassed some
30,000 clay tablets
- and, no, you
weren't allowed to
check anything out!
I don't believe


LIBRARY
Caro
Hesse
""


Thomas Jefferson
could have imagined that his
personal library, given to the
U.S. Government as a national
library, would grow into the
world's largest library, now
known as the Library of
Congress. This library has, at
last count, some 128 million
items in it!
We can thank the Danish for
having used their birch tree
bark to'write on so commonly,
that they coined their word for
birch tree, ""bog," to refer to
their writing. From their root
word came the Old English
word "boc", which we now use
for our writings, only we say
"book".
Librarian Melville Dewey
invented the Dewey Decimal
System in 1876 to help classify
materials and, therefore, more


easily locate them on
07 Ar the shelves. In
Dewey's day, no one
S* went to the shelves to
choose the books
, y they wanted, instead,
the librarian or
library clerk went
back to the shelves
and pulled the item
LINES for the patron.
Most libraries had
)lyn large reading rooms
link where people spent
"-- long hours studying
the bobks. Libraries were
mainly for adults and had little
or no -materials for children.
Dewey's system is still in use
today, and we still refer to the
numbers or letters assigned to
the individual books as "call
numbers," because that is
where the book will be found
on the shelf.
Do you know the 10 main
categories? They are: 000
General Knowledge; 100
Philosophy and Psychology;
200 Religion; 300 Social
Studies; 400 Languages; 500
Math and Science; 600
Medicine and Technology; 700
Arts and Recreation; 800
Literature, and 900 Geography
and History.
Translated into common
examples, the Dewey System


would have a book on the
-basics of first aid in the 600s, a
book on how to paint and draw
in the 700s, a book, CD or cas-
sette on learning Spanish in the
400s, a video on Algebra in the
500s. No matter which collec-
tiori you are in, whether it is in
the children's area, the videos,
the DVDs, the talking books or
non-fiction books, the Dewey
Decimal System of categorizing
remains exactly the same.
So...look for encyclopedias in
the 031s (General Knowledge),
and find your favorite movie in
the 791.43s. (Arts and
Recreation).
This year's Library Week
theme is "The Library: Where
Imaginations Grow."
We thank Betty Pate for her
teddy display, asking you to
"Please Bear'With Us."

istrative secretary of the

Tall, brittle ear trees not well suited to Florida


The ear tree
(Enterolobium cyclo- .
carpum), which ...
comes from the fami-
ly Fabaceae, is one of
the giant plants of the
tropics and the
national tree of Costa
Rica.
If you ever see one
of its seed pods, you G, RO
will know why it car-
ries this name. In SE
1969 Professor John
D. Watkins penned High
the following words County
in his long-standing Gart
text that can still be -"
- purchased today entitled
Florida Landscape Plants..
"As a single specimen on a
campus, in a City Park or botan-
ical garden, an ear-tree might be
wanted for its interesting pods,
but this monstrous legume is
too large for home-ground
plantings and is not recom-
mended for city lots. The brit-
tle wood breaks in strong

of 2004. Today, as you travel

around Highlands
and other counties,
you can see many of
these giant plants
still littering the
landscapes of our
area.
These trees can
reach heights of 75
or more feet and up
to 8 feet in diameter.
A tree of this size can
destroy a small home
if it falls on top of it.
Even if a home is
not damaged, the cost
of cleaning up one of
these monsters can be


astronomical, and most of the
citizens of Highlands County
would not want to be responsi-
ble for such a cost.
In South and Central
America and in the Caribbean
the pods of these plants are fed
to cattle and other grazing ani-
mals, and humans as well. As a
legume, these pods have a
bean-like protein content, but in
the United States better food
can be raised for animals and
humans without the hazards
that come with the brittle nature


of ear trees.
In Florida's early days, peo-
ple were looking fbr quick
shade and lots of it, as there
were no air conditioners or even
electricity for fans. Today pro-
fessors from the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences caution
against certain plants.
Dr. Allen W. Marrow has
written the following in an
paper that you can read by
inserting the botanical name of
the plant covered by this article
in the search portion of EDIS,
the Web site for the IFAS and
the Universityu of Florida
College of Agriculture.
This writer thinks that his
professor of 50 years ago, Dr.
Dr. John Watkins, would agree
with Marrow's statement:
"Additionally the following
species can be invasive under
certain conditions: Ear tree
(Enterolobium cyclocarpum)
precaution should be exercised
in its use."

Little goat's sad demise leaves lasting impression


I noticed the man at the small
animal auction before he ever
spoke.
He was over six feet tall, with
a kind face and eyes. We stood
at the side of the pen holding
the goats that my husband and I
had brought for the sale, and I
sensed the questions coming
before he ever asked them.
His first question brought
back a memory that I had long
buried and would have just as
soon not dug up.
"I have a little dwarf nanny
that I bought at auction, and she
seems to be pregnant. How can
I tell for sure?" He asked.
I instantly thought of Sammy,
a solid black nanny that had
come in a herd of dwarf goats
that we had purchased years
before. Even for a dwarf, she
was tiny. Her bleat was weak
and airy, leaving her sounding
more like a hungry cat than a
goat.
I was very protective of
Sammy. The other goats chased
her out of the feed so I rook to


feeding her off by her-
self. She was pregnant FARM
when we got her.
Within two months her C..
udder filled with milk
and I made it my per-
sonal project to keep an eye on
her.
Despite my attentions, she
still managed to hide herself in
the pasture when the time came,
and it was only by luck that I
found her when she went into
labor.
She appeared to have been
working at her task for a long
time. She was clearly exhaust-
ed; lying on her side, no longer
putting any real effort into try-
ing to expel the kid.
I got down on my knees and
I coaxed and I encouraged and I
did everything I could think to
do to help her, but she simply
lay there, her breath coming and
going in great gasps. I soon
found out why.
It appeared that little Sammy
had been bred by a standard
goat or had been bred far too


m


young. Upon examina-
TALES tion, I found that the
head of the kid was far
ouser too large for her to
use_ have any hope of being
able to pass it.
Furthermore, the kid was stilf-
born, or had died at some point
in the birth process.
I was home alone, so it was
just Sammy and I, faced with
this horrendous set of circum-
stances. I was miles away from
any help, with no transportation
and this goat was suffering. I
had no idea what to do, but I
knew that I couldn't just leave
her like this. I paced for a few
minutes, gazing at her helpless-
ly.
With a heavy sigh, Sammy
lay her head on the grass, rolled
her eyes up to me and gave me
my answer. She had given up.
She and I both knew that it was
no use, but it was her obvious
resignation that spurred me into
action.
I went into the house and got
the pistol.


I'm the only one in my fami-
ly who doesn't hunt. There's a
reason for that. While I advo-
cate hunting and enjoy benefit-
ing from it, I simply do not have
the heart of a hunter.
Consequently, I am in no way
even an adequate shot.
I fired the pistol into the
ground to familiarize myself
with the kick of the weapon,
and then I crossed the pasture,
placed the barrel of the gun
between Sammy's horns,
squeezed my eyes shut... and
then squeezed the trigger.
The explosion took my
breath. I laid the gun down on
the grass and walked away, not
looking back. I was angry with
myself for not knowing what to
do to help this goat. I felt igno-
rAnt and useless, and I felt that
Sammy had paid the price for
my ignorance.
Before I knew what was hap-
pening, I-was relating the tale of
Sammy to the man with the
kind eyes. I watched as the


kindness ebbed away to be
replaced with worry and con-
cern. I had to let him know what
he may be facing by buying a
young dwarf nanny goat with
no idea of her history or back-
ground. I had to, and I only
wish someone had done it for
me. Maybe I would have taken
Sammy to a vet before it was
too late.
I saw the man with the kind
eyes at the auction again a few
weeks later, and inquired after
his goat. Whether we liked it or
not, we had bonded to a degree,
and we now shared something
in common; the worry over his
little goat.
"Nothing yet." He informed
me, and I breathed a sigh of
relief.
Several more weeks passed
until I saw him again. I walked
right up to him and without pre-
amble...
"Well?"
"She's great!" He smiled, and
we both relaxed. "She had two


kids, no trouble at all."
He went on to describe the
blessed event and I sighed with
relief. It appeared that his little
nanny had been bred properly,
and I was eternally grateful that
everything went off without a
hitch for him.
It was not my intention to
worry this man with the kind
eyes, only to warn him to
prepare him just in case. I
can only imagine what it must
have been like for him as he
waited for his little goat to bring
forth her kids.
I felt bad about that, but had I
known what was coming with
Sammy I would have been bet-
ter prepared and maybe I would
have found a way to prevent the
memory that haunts me now -
the memory of the little black
goat that looked to me for help I
was not able to provide.

Sheriff to speak at MOAA's monthly meeting


SEBRING Last
November, Susan Benton was
elected Highlands County sher-
iff in a landslide.
Bucking the overwhelming
trend of local voters toward
Republican candidates, Benton
was the only Democrat elected
to county office. There was no
doubt that voters of both parties
contributed to her victory over
her male Republican opponent.
Benton will be the speaker at
the Military Officers
Association of America's
monthly meeting on Saturday,
April 16, at the Sebring Sun 'N
Lake Golf and Country Club.
The U.S. Army Junior ROTC
Color Guard from DeSoto High
School will open the meeting at
noon with the presentation of


the Colors.
"We are indeed pleased that
Sheriff Benton accepted our
invitation to speak to our
group," said chapter president
Peter B. Injasoulian, a retired
U.S. Army Reserve brigadier
general.
A native of Miami, Benton
graduated from Pace High
School and chose a career in
law enforcement early in life.
She earned a bachelor's'
degree from St. Thomas
University, a master's degree in
public administration from Troy
State University and 'certified
public administration from
Florida State University. She
has numerous certificates in
advanced and specialized law
enforcement training.


Prior to joining the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Department in 1979,. Benton
was physical education teacher
and police officer in the Dade
County schools.

Are you at risk for kidney disease? Chrysler showing latest models


Disease has
symptoms, but only
a doctor's test can
give positive proof
By DR. MACKENZIE WALSER
Special to the News-Sun
Are you one of the millions
of people who have unrecog-
nized kidney disease? It's worth
finding out, because if the dis-
ease progresses, you may wind
up on dialysis, which can be
extremely disabling and a life-
long process unless you can
get a transplant.
Initially, the main symptoms
of kidney disease are fatigue,
loss of appetite, itching, and
muscle cramps. Later, the
symptoms progress to include
nausea and vomiting. By this
time, you're in the later stages
of the disease when about three-
quarters of kidney function has
been lost. So you can't recog-
nize kidney disease by the
symptoms alone.
There are two simple tests to
check for kidney disease. A rou-
tine blood test can detect
impaired kidney function. Your
doctor probably performs a rou-
tine blood chemistry test once a
year or so. You can also test
yourself. In either case, that test
includes a measurement of cre-
atinine, a substance that is pro-
duced continuously by the
body, especially in muscle, and
is excreted by the kidneys.
When kidney function
decreases, there is a higher
level of creatinine in the blood
that can be readily detected.


The upper limit of normal crea-
tinine concentration in the
blood serum is about 1.5 mil-
ligrams per 100 milliliters.
When creatinine concentra-
tion is higher than 1.5 mil-
ligrams per 100 milliliters of
serum, kidney function must be
reduced.
The more kidney function is
impaired, the higher serum cre-
atinine concentration becomes.
The average serum creatinine
concentration at which dialysis
becomes necessary for survival
is about 7 milligrams per 100
milliliters, corresponding to
about 1/10 of kidney function
remaining. Some people start
dialysis much earlier for
example, they might start dialy-
sis at a creatinine level as low
as 3 mg per deciliter, though
this is probably not necessary.
Along with routinely having
your blood tested, you can easi-
ly test for urine protein. Paper
strips for this purpose can be
purchased at any pharmacy.
Simply hold one of the strips
in your urinary stream and see
if it changes color (the label
will give further details, includ-
ing how to determine if there is
glucose in your urine which is a
sign of diabetes). But if this test
does show urinary protein, you
need not conclude that you have
kidney failure.
The first thing to do if you
get a positive reading is to
repeat the test. If a positive
result still appears, you may
have kidney disease, but you
may instead have one of the


other conditions that can make
protein appear in the urine even
.though kidney function is nor-
mal.
The most common cause of
such a result is fever, but there
are other causes, too. If protein
continues to appear in your
urine, see your doctor. He or
she will find out whether you
have chronic kidney disease. If
you don't have protein in your
urine, you almost certainly
don't have kidney disease.
If your kidney function is
reduced, it's critical to know if
the disease is progressing, This
requires repeated creatinine
measurements over a period of
at least several months. If your
creatinine concentration,
though elevated, does not rise
further, you may never develop
kidney failure and may never
require dialysis. If the disease is
progressing, controlling your
blood pressure and reducing
your dietary protein can help
slow the progression. ,
Occasionally, people who
have elevated creatinine con-
centrations go on for decades
without progression, and may
have no symptoms at all, pro-
viding that their kidney func-
tion is not too severely
impaired.
Don't take a chance with
your kidneys-the stakes are too
high. Get tested today.

Disease," by Mackenzie Walser
(of Hoboken, N.J.) with Betsy
Thorpe, John Wiley & Sons.


at school's annual spring fling


Each test drive
earns a donation to
Avon Elementary's
Parent-Teacher
Organization
AVON PARK "Drive for
Kids," a national program fund-
ed by Chrysler, is coming to
Avon Elementary School.
Drive for the Kids is a fund-
raiser for the school and an
opportunity for adults to inspect
the latest Chrysler minivans


and family vehicles.
Avon Elementary's Parent-
Teacher Organization said the
Chrysler models will be at the
school from 5-8 p.m. Friday
during its annual spring carni-
val.
Chrysler representatives will
be on hand to answer questions
about the vehicles. Those who
wish can test drive the vehicles
with a Chrysler representative.
For every adult who drives a
Chrysler and completes a short
questionnaire, Chrysler will


donate $5 to the Avont'
Elementary PTO.
For example, if a husband,
