Washing hands is
still the best
protection
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Ever since the
1970s, medical professionals
have dealt with antibiotic-
resistant diseases.
For the most part, these
developed among patients
whose resistance was already
down, getting in through a sur-
gical wound, ventilator, or an
intravenous needle. In the last
two years, however, antibiotic-
resistant infections have taken
hold in otherwise healthy popu-
lations, such as athletic teams,
cheerleading squads, or prisons
with shared areas such as lock-
er rooms or showers or shared
items such as towels.
The culprit is staphylococcus


aureus, a bacteria commonly
found on the skin or in the nose
of healthy people, but one of
the most common causes of
infection in the United States.
Recently, methicillin-resist-
ant staph aureus or MRSA
- has caused trouble. It can be
carried on the skin or in the
nose without causing disease,
but it resists the antibiotics
commonly used to fight it.
Protection is available, and
it's the oldest treatment known:
Good hygiene and washing
hands thoroughly.
Meredith Lutz, director of
infection control/performance
improvement at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center, said hospitals have
always had handwashing proto-
cols and contact precautions to
protect patients from infection.
Florida Hospital has hand-sani-
tizing stations all over the hos-
pital. The antibacterial and


alcohol gel dispensers allow
people to take a water-free
wash anytime.
If a person gets an MRSA
infection out in the community,
it usually looks like a spider
bite. People treat it that way
until they know what it is.
Staph infections are treated
with antibiotics. The amount
and length of time depends on
the type of infection and the
extent of it, Lutz said. In any
case, patients must take all of
their antibiotics, even after they
feel better, because that's one
way that drug-resistant bacteria
have developed.
"The strongest bacteria sur-
vives," she said.
Bacteria may eventually
develop resistance to antibac-
terial soaps and cleaners, she
said, but ultimately, washing
them off is the first and best
way to combat them. To be

Renfro discusses challenges faced


* This is the second in a two-part series.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Among the challenges
facing the administrators, teachers, and
support personnel in Florida's public
schools are the mandates and standards
sent down to the local level from the fed-
eral and state governments.
These mandates and standards have


often been necessary, created to address
long term problems, but just as often
they can be difficult to implement, or
have unintended consequences.
Additionally, all too often, these man-
dates and standards are expensive to put
into place or attain, and all too often no
money is allotted by the requiring
agency, so the local community has to
bear the cost.


Special needs children
Wendy Renfro, school, board member
since 1994, illustrated the problem with
a specific example.
"People's perception of what educa-
tion is today it's been so long since
they were in a classroom, I don't really
think they grasp what the student body
looks like today," she said.
"Special needs kids are here. They.


Drury presents a number of facts.

vhich shows seven out of 10 cus-
omers who stop doing business
with a company do so because of
he way they were treated on the

He maintains that while 96 per-
cent of unhappy customers never

Better buildings

By PHIL ATTlNGER

SEBRING Better school
buildings with more room may
not merely mean better stu-
dents, it could mean better jobs
- for everyone.
That's why the Economic
Development Commission
Board of Directors voted
Wednesday morning not only to
support a proposed half-cent
sales tax for school capital
improvements, but to allow
EDC Executive Director Louise
England to speak in favor of the
measure at future meetings..

AVON PARK Plans are
going forward for an affordable
housing complex on Garrett
Road in Avon Park.
County commissioners have
approved The CED Companies
to seek tax-exempt bonds to
build at 104-unit development.
Named Garrett Cove, it would
sit across U.S. 27 from Wells
Motor Company on Garrett
Road, but be back away from
the highway frontage. The par-
cel lies just north of College
Drive and South Florida
Community College.
W. Scott Culp, executive
vice president of the company,
said they plan to build a two-
story (35-foot-tall) building
with a Cape Cod theme, a two-
to-one parking ratio, and two-,
three-, and four-bedroom apart-
7: ments available. ,
Culp said these'would be
full apartinepnt. with ajfull-,ize
bath, walk-in closets, ground-
floor entry and their own laun-
dry. The development would
have a pool, as well, and even
an after-school program with
paid staff, called "The Mouster
Club."
A minimum 77 units would
be rented as affordable rents.


The next public meeting on
the subject is a community
meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday at
the Sebring Civic Center,
behind the Sebring Public
Library off Lakeview Drive.
England said better schools
will improve the county's abili-
ty to attract companies that pay
higher salaries. They want a
good school system, she said,
because prospective employees
will ask about that. If the facili-
ties look poorly maintained,
crowded, or below academic
standard in any way, skilled
workers won't want to move
here and neither will the com-
panies that want to employ
them.
England is particularly
encouraged by the fact that
some of the tax funds could be


Culp estimates $456 a month
for one bedroom, $543 a month
for two, $623 for three, and
$681 for four.
Since the company is not a
non-profit, it will pay full real
estate' taxes, Culp said.
To build it will take $6.5 mil-
lion in bonds, issued through
the Polk County Housing
Finance Authority, on behalf of
Highlands County.
Since the Polk County
Housing Finance Authority
needed a resolution from the
county to-operate in Highlands
County and planned to meet
Tuesday night, county commis-
sioners had to approve a resolu-
tion Tuesday morning.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
said it looked like an "outstand-
ing project," adding that the
county needs to get more
aggressive on housing projects
and rental costs.
,-:Culp said th "county-shi

midst of the Hurricane Housing
Recovery Project, in which

SEBRING Residents in and near
SpringLake love having a Dollar General on U.S.
98.
John Ames of Lorida uses the discount store all
the time, but turning into the parking lot is a bit
difficult.
The store is a little more than seven miles from
U.S. 27, and it does not have its own left turn
lane. There isn't enough room for one. Instead,
it's yellow zebra stripes, which are not meant to
be used as a turn lane.
Ames visited the Community Traffic Safety
Team last Wednesday hoping to get some
answers. Debra Stallings with FDOT said she
would look at the situation, but that doesn't mean
there will be a turn lane.

used to
upgrade school
eq uipme n t,
especially
computer facil-
ities. That will
improve the
quality of the
workforce, she.


In order for FDOT to approve installing a traf-
fic control device, such as a traffic light, road
striping or turn lane, it has to be warranted. That
means the traffic volume in and out of the store
has to be high enough to show that the road
would be unsafe without the turn lane. .
Ames thinks it's warranted, based on the fact
that eastbound traffic is approaching SpringLake
at highway speed where the road widens for other
businesses and turn lanes beyond Dollar General.
There is not enough stacking room, he believes,.
for cars going into the Dollar General and poten-
tial for being hit from behind..
He is concerned that if FDOT studies the road
now, the numbers will be too low. If engineers
study the road in the fall, when winter visitors
return, it would give a better traffic count, he
said.

said, since good computer skills
are a must.
Jeff Mechlin, chairman of the
EDC board, has seen schools in
other counties that rely heavily
on portables: "They are not
attractive."
"Too many (schools) look
like a warehouse," said board
member Fred Jahna.
Aesthetics aside, Highlands
County Superintendent of
Schools Wally Cox told the
board Wednesday morning that


it's a lot cheap-
er in the long
run to build
permanent,
substantial
structures than
to rent porta-
COX bles.
Even after
spending as much as $250,000
to upgrade 80-year-old build-
ings with new cables, electric
lines and air systems, Cox said
it was a good bargain and the
buildings will serve for another
40-50 years.
Board member Wade
Taveniere said Cox may also
want to publicize the other
advantages of well-made school
buildings, such as their use as
hurricane shelters. Cox agreed,
especially since school cafete-


rias can provide not only shelter
space, but a built-in food serv-
ice facility and restrooms.
Sadly, he said, the bunker
style of architecture at Avon
Park and Sebring middle
schools doesn't qualify for shel-
ter by modern specifications.
Right now, 40 percent of
Cox's operating budget comes
from property taxes. Any
increase will put the county
over the maximum allowed by
state law. What's more, the state
can tell the school district how
to spend that money. A sale tax
has no such restrictions, and is
equally divided among the con-
sumers, Cox said.
.He hopes he can use that
money to stay ahead of student
population growth, which is
projected at 3.5 percent for the
next 20 years.

Softball site scaled back,



ready for final design


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County may be able to save as
much as $2 million on the pro-
posed softball site in Sebring.
A site plan proposed to the
Recreation and Parks Advisory
Committee in February had an
estimate of $4.7 million for the
whole 52-acre project to be
built off Highlands Avenue.
RPAC members decided to
scale back the plan, to $2.5 mil-
lion.
Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius has been
able to defer some items, such
as the playgrounds, batting
cages and lighting over the
football fields, until later. That,
plus using county crews and


staff, allowed her to get the cost
down to $2.7 million, which
RPAC members accepted on
Thursday.
Pontius is already the project
manager on the Windy Point
Park project, so she will act as
project manager for the softball
site. The county could act as
general contractor. County
crews and equipment could do
the earth work. The county also
would build the picnic pavilion
and two-story concession stand,
but hire individual trades to do
the electrical work, plumbing,
and the heating and air-condi-
tioning.
Everything taken out will get
permitted in the footprint, she
said. That way, they can build it
later when funds come avail-


able.
The county was able to get
the two projects under the same
loan, and has $600,000 in
grants to help pay the $1.2 mil-
lion price tag for Windy Point
Park.
Combined, the two projects
will cost the county $3.3 mil-
lion.
Pontius will present the pro-
posed construction costs to the
county commission on May 3,
including an estimate of the
operating and maintenance
costs. She has had Chastain-
Skillman Inc. engineers on hold
to design the site plan until
RPAC had a recommendation
on what to build. She will work
with them this week to hammer
out the details.


Tuesday night vigil to




highlight child abuse


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING April is Child
Abuse Awareness Month and in
an effort to draw attention to the
problem a group of local and
area groups are getting together
to host a candlelight vigil on
the Circle.
If that sounds familiar, it
should. There was to have been
a vigil on the Circle earlier this
month, however, that was can-
celed due to inclement weather.
The program is being done
by the Highlands County
Children's Advocacy Center in
cooperation with Heartland for
Children and Devereux Kids.
This time it will be at 7 p.m.
Music is slated to be provid-
ed by the winners of the Junior
Heartland Idol contest. It will
be the first official appearance
by :the winners ,since' their


March 31 finals.
The vigil is the forerunner to
a program which is designed to
teach people how to successful-
ly, intervene when they see an
abusive situation out in public.
Jeff Roth, executive director
of the. Children's Advocacy
Center, said he hoped it would
be the kickoff of a campaign
that could get the instruction to
groups consisting of business
co-workers, civic clubs, church
groups or just interested citi-
zens who could meet as a
group.
Done through the auspices of
Heartland for Children and
Devereux Kids, the effort is
designed as a prevention pro-
gram.
"We call it help before harm.
We're really interested in get-
ting people to ,be more aware
and to watch out for children at


.-,. '"


all times," she said.
Interested people will be able
to sign up during the cere-
monies on the Circle.
As part of the program,
men\bers of the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Profesional Association will
be making a special presenta-
tion tu the Kinsley Cox fund.
That's\ part of the Children's
Service Foundation with pro-
ceeds ued to assist individuals
who ha(e children with life
threatening illnesses.
The D PA will be donating
$200 in \he name of Isabel
Reyes. Tie youngster, the
daughter cf a former DMPA
vice president, died last year of
a heart defect.
The morey was raised
through concession sales during'
Junior Heartlaid Idol competi-
tions. .

Ballet Magnificat! to dance


the tale of the prodigal son


Restoration Church of the Highlands
is modifying stage for Tuesday
night's single performance


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING After a two-
year absence, Ballet
Magnificat! is returning to
Restoration Church of the
Highlands on Tuesday evening
with an all-new ballet based on
the New Testament parable of
the prodigal son.
Rachel Moore, one of the
organizers of the event, said the
Ballet Magnificat! performed
"Deliver Us
the last time it was in town.
That ballet was based on the
soundtrack of "The Prince of
Egypt."
"The Journey of the Prodigal
Son" is an interpretive dance
that tells the story of an
ungrateful son who leaves horn
with an inheritance, only to
squander it and be welcomed
home again. The music will be
a blend of contemporary
Christian selections and origi-
nal music.
This ballet has been choreo-
graphed by Gary Voborsky, one
of the premier dancers in the
unit. One of the featured
dancers will be Ballet
Magnificat! co-founder Kathy
Thibodeaux, a silver medal


winner at the second USA
International Ballet
Competition.
Although there will be no
killing of the fatted calf, Moore
said some animals will be on
stage as part of the perform-
ance.
One again, Restoration is
making accommodations for
the ballet. For "The Prince of
Egypt," the church expanded its
stage, Moore said. It's doing
that again for "The Prodigal
Son."
A new surface will be laid
down, Moore explained. The
church has carpeting, but the
dancers use a special flooring
that prevents injuries to their
knees.
Moore said the church was
fortunate enough to land the
troupe when a date opened in
their schedule.
"We heard about it and called
right away," she said.
Founded in 1986 by Keith
and Kathy Thibodeaux, Ballet
Magnificat! has performed
throughout the United States
and all over the world. The
group of 14 dancers are as inter-
national as their itinerary. Their
venues have ranged from


Belgium to Singapore, and their
list of home countries is just as
impressive.
Moore remembers seeing the
ballet for the first time in
California.
"When our church grew to
the size where we could have
touring groups come in, I men-
tioned it and we went for it,"
said Moore, who is herself a
dancer and choreographer. "It
was kind of a dream of mine to
have them come here."
"Magnificat" is Latin for "to
magnify him," which expresses
the troupe's purpose to mag-
nify God through dance and
spread the good news of Jesus
Christ throughout the world.
The term comes from the first
chapter of Luke, known as
"Mary's Song," because it tells
of the occasion when Mary
learned she would become the
mother of the Messiah.
Doors will open at 6 p.m.
The ballet will begin at 7.
Fewer than 400 seats are avail-
able.
Tickets purchased in advance
are $12 per person or $10 per
person for groups of 10 or
more. At the door, admission
will be $15 per person and $8
for children ages 12 and under.
Restoration Church of the
Highlands is at the corner of
Sparta Road and State Road 66.

Farm Bureau sporting clays


tournament raises $14,000


By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Early esti-
mates find that fifth annual
CrackerShoot on April 9 raised
$6,000 more than last year.


According to Mason Smoak,
president of the Highlands
SCounty Farm Bureau's board of
directors, the sporting clays
b tournament took in about
$10,000 from the shooters and
$4,000 from a drawing. The
drawing prize was a Ruger red-
label 12-gauge over and under
shotgun.
Last year's CrackerShoot
raised $8,000 on the property of
John Payne of Sebring. This
year, the event was at Square
One Sporting Clays in Lake
Placid.
Smoak credits the communi-
ty and numerous sponsors for
making the event a success.
) In sporting clays tourna-
Qrs ments, the clay targets are


released in several different
ways to simulate hunting condi-
tions, Payne said.
Variety kept the course from
becoming boring. Course oper-
ators Daphne Waldron and her
son, Phillip Sudduth, changed
the stations around so shooters
didn't know what to expect.
There were 14 stations and a
total of 100 shots.
"Folks really enjoyed the
course and the new setup,"
Smoak said.
Chase Platt, of Fellsmere,
took the title out of 215 shoot-
ers. He made 96 out of 100
shots.
In addition to Chase, the Platt
family team consisted of his
father, Buddy Chase, his uncle,
Paul Chase, and friend Phil
Blevins. They took the lead
with 361 shots out of 400.
The winning ticket for the
shotgun was purchased by
Cameron "Bubb4" Dilley, 14,


of Avon Park. His family owns
Roland L. Dilley & Son Inc.
wholesale citrus nursery in
Avon Park.
Registration started at 7:30
a.m. and ran until 9:30 to
accommodate the large number
of competitors. Once the com-
petition\ended at 1:15 p.m., par-
ticipants were treated to a bar-
becue lunch, awards presenta-
tion and drawing.
Smoak said Farm Bureau
also gave a bent barrel award to
the worst shooter, but declined
to give that name or score.
Proceeds from the event sup-
port the Farm Bureau
Federation's various activities.
For example, it sponsors coun-
tywide youth programs, such as
4-H and Future Farmers of
America, sends agricultural
lobbyists to Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C., and supports
the annual Ag-Venture educa-
tional eerit

EDITOR'S NOTE: The
News-Sun has been publishing
news about Highlands County
since 1927 as a treat for our
readers. We have gone through
the archives and pulled stories
that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash from the Past of Sept. 30,
1938.

Federal Highway 19 will be
the preferential highway of the
state, members of a local dele-
gation stated here Monday
evening after attending a meet-
ing in Arcadia called by
Representative John S. Burks as
member of the state road plan-
ning committee of the state leg-
islature, for the purpose of hear-
ing reports from legislators and
other county officials and citi-

zens of DeSoto, Hardee,
Highlands, Glades and Hendry
counties.
Highlands County had by far
the largest delegation at the
meeting, nearly half of those
present at the meeting being
from Avon Park, Sebring,
DeSoto City, Lake Placid and


&' ~Li


Venus.
Some of those attending the
meeting gave as their reason for
believing the proposed federal
highway will be listed first in
the state is because of its mili-
tary importance and because,
under the set-up of federal aid,
it can be built with less expense
to the state than any other of the
proposed highways; and
because it will serve all the peo-
ple in the state by relieving traf-
fic from coastal highways.
Representative Burks opened
the meeting, stating the pur-
pose. The state now has 9000
miles of state roads to maintain,
many of which are really com-
munity roads; and if we keep
following the system of desig-
nating and building state roads


without a systematic plan, in a
few years we will have twenty
thousands miles of roads and
not have funds to maintain
them.
"It has got to where the coun-
ty that yells the loudest gets the
most," He said. "We must have
trunk highways which we will
designate as primary roads,
keep mileage down; and if we
can do. this and agree on what
should be primary roads, we
can get fifty million dollars for
these roads soon."
He displayed a map prepared
by the state planning survey
department which showed road
nineteen as a primary road. It
was evident by .his attitude that
the question of its status as a
primary road was already set-
tled.
Ivey Futch of Lake Placid
spoke for the Highlands County
delegation which was headed
by Representative M.C.
Whitehurst.
Highlands, Glades and
Hendry countries all gave
Federal Route Nineteen as their
preference as a preferred high-
way.

"We have good procedures,
we followed .them to the 'T' and
everything worked well,"
HGMS Principal David
Robinson said following the
incident.
The incident occurred before
classes began when a sixth-
grader reportedly began show-
ing off the handgun to some of
the other students -at the school.
The youngsters immediately
informed school administrators.
"They were heroes, that's
how I have been referring to
them all day," Robinson said.
It was then that the standard
procedure kicked in.
The bell for the start of class-
es had just sounded and stu,
dents had moved inside when
Robinson received the report.
"It was then that I declared a
lockdown," Robinson said. "I

know it only took 15 minutes
because Channel One was still
playing."
Channel One is the video
news program that is prepared
and delivered by students at the
start of each school day.
It was new school resource
officer Brian Giguere 'who
affected the arrest. Thursday
was just his second day on the
job at Hill-Gustat, but he's not
new on the job.
"He was a DARE teacher in
Oklahoma. He's a good guy,
and we're glad to have him,"
Robinson said.
It also was Giguere who
talked with the youth and locat-
ed the loaded .357 handgun.
Robinson went room to room
announcing the "all clear" once
the incident was over and the
rest of the day went without a
hitch.
"It was done all before the
end of the first period. We never
missed a bell," Robinson said.
School officials were dis-
turbed that the young man was
able to carry the weapon from
home to the school aboard one
of the busses.
Highlands County Sheriff's
Sgt. Monica Sauls, who is over
all DARE officers in Highlands
County, said it was the first


firearms-related incident at
Hill-Gustat.
She said at no time were
there any threats made to use
the weapon, and that it had
remained in its holster.
"I just want to say it was
Sheriff [Susan] Benton who
saw there was a need to have a
resource officer in every middle
school and high school," Sauls
said. "Had she not done that,
Deputy Giguere would not have
been here."
Sauls said Giguere was well
qualified, saying he was a road
officer when working in
Oklahoma.
"He's a seasoned officer and
completely competent in han-
dling all law enforcement situa-
tions," she said.
The Sebring 12-year-old was
charged with possession of a
firearm on school grounds and
sent to Juvenile Detention
Center in Bartow.
"The parents were concerned
and extremely cooperative,"
Sauls said.
Reportedly, the handgun had
been stolen in a neighborhood
burglary. Authorities indicated
there could be 'charges forth-
coming in connection with that
incident.

SEBRING A system
designed to make child safety
seats easier to install may be
dangerous in some situations.
The LATCH system, which
stands for "lower anchors and
tethers for children," is
designed to make installing
child safety seats easier without
using the vehicle's seat belt sys-
tem.
It uses steel hoops installed
under and above the car seats so
the child safety seat can anchor
into the car. By September
2002, all new vehicles had to
have this hardware and all child
safety seats had to have two
lower attachments to attach to
the vehicle.
The only problem is the seal
belt that is no longer used.


According to the National
Safe Kids Campaign, two
young children have had unfor-
tunate experiences recently
with the unused safety belts
while seated and secured in a
child seat using the LATCH
system.
The children were allegedly
able to wrap the safety belts
around their necks and activate
the automatic locking retractor.
Renee LaDue, Community
Traffic Safety Team coordinator
and Florida state-certified child
safety seat technician, explains
the retractor is the spring-
loaded device that rolls up the
seat belt. It has two modes.
Emergency locking mode holds
it tight when it is grabbed sud-
denly, such as the force against
it in a wreck. The relracting
mode rolls it back out of the


way to keep it from acting like
debris in a wreck.
In both cases, the children
activated the automatic locking
retractor, which rolled the seat
belt up around their necks, and
made it impossible for them to
get lose.
One child suffocated, LaDue
said. The other was injured
while the car was in motion.
To avoid this problem, the
National Safe Kids Campaign
suggests parents and guardians
take precautions.
Do a "pinch" test. Place
the harness correctly on the
child, according to the manu-
facturer's instructions, and
tighten the harness so the adult
is unable to "pinch" any excess
webbing at the chest. This
should restrict a child of any
age from reaching the safety


belt.
Teach children that safety
belts are safety devices, not
toys.
Buckle the safety belt
behind the LATCH-secured
child safety seat, or use, the
safety belt to secure the child
safety seat and discontinue
LATCH use.
If people have trouble
installing their seats, LaDue
suggests they contact their local
police department for help.
Avon Park and Sebring police
departments have child seat fit-
ling stations with trained tech-
nicians. The Lake Placid town
hall has a fitting station, also.

Florida Hospital gets



ready for 'Cheer Factor'


Staff raising
money for
United Way
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING For the last
several weeks, Florida Hospital
employees have done some
interesting things to raise
money for the United Way of
Central Florida Highlands
County.
They have used the usual
methods of bake sales, T-shirt
sales and simple donations, but
one employee played guitar in
the lobby of the Sebring hospi-
tal for spare change. Other off-
beat fund-raisers included set-
ting tip a dunk tank, shaving a
nursing manager's head or sell-
ing tickets to go to an employ-
ee's home to pet a live, tame,
cougar.
Michelle Johnsdn, with
Florida Hospital public rela-
tions, said several area busi-
nesses have donated prizes for
chance drawings. All of the pro-
ceeds go to the local United
Way.
It's all very competitive, and
part of the annual "Cheer
Factor" competition. Starting in'
2003, Florida Hospital employ-
ees once a year would divide
into teams usually one direc-
tor and five employees and
compete to see who can raise
the most money.
After the fund-raising is
done, then comes the fun. The
teams compete in the style of
NBC's "Fear Factor," only with
tasks that are far less scary or
disgusting, at 2 p.m. Friday.
Teams have to complete hilari-
ous physical or mental chal-
lenges such as solving puz-
zles or answering difficult
questions to race forward to
the finish line.
The team that raises the most
money, Johnson said, gets to
start first. .Then, at 10 second
intervals, the other teams fol-
low. Usually, the last team gets
the most difficult tasks and

Continued from 1A
eyeballs to follow a flashlight
beam. That was the goal set for
that child.
"They were strapped to a
backboard, they had a feeding
tube, they were in diapers.
"I'm not saying that those
children should not be served in
some way. But when the federal
government passed the IDEA,
the Individuals with Disabilities
Education Act, in the legislation
itself, says it will be funded at
40 percent, which to me is inad-
equate. In fact, I believe last
year it was funded at 13 per-
cent. This year we're up to 18
percent, yet we're required to
provide services for this child
and I don't know if people real-
ize where that money comes
from," Renfro said, pausing for
emphasis.
"It comes from your pot -
your big pot.
"When you've got a child
with a feeding tube and diapers,
they need their very own para-
professional. You've got to pay
that para-professional, and not
only that, in the federal legisla-
tion it said you will have a
shower facility, you will have a
laundry facility, you Will have a
kitchen to take care of these
children.
"So it's not just a matter of
putting up classrooms and put-
ting in desks anymore.

No Child Left
Behind
"It was kind of funny,"
Renfro remembered, "I went to


a meeting with a group that was
pulled together when Governor
Jeb Bush got elected. He was,
talking a lot to his brother in
Texas, and his brother was
telling him how things were in
Texas. You know, how they
were able to do this and so
we were trying to study the dif-
ferences.
"One difference was there
were over 1,000 school districts
in the state of Texas. Every little
community is its own school
district. (Florida has 67 school
districts, one in each county.)
"And. There are no teachers'
unions. In the state of Florida
the right to unionize is in our
state constitution, so, you have
to negotiate a lot of things."
Beyond the differences in
population and system struc-
ture, Renfro pointed to the
inconsistency of testing materi-
als.
"If we used the same stan-
dards Texas uses to measure
adequate yearly progress," she
said, "all of our schools would
meet that.
"But because Florida has
such high standards, and high
bench marks, we've set the hur-
dle too high and it makes it
more challenging. So our num-
bers don't look so good, but
academically, it's there.
"We need accountability,"
she added. "Yes, we need to
measure our student population,
but if you're going to compare
us to other states, then make
sure we're using the same
instrument."

Most difficult
For Renfro, the most difficult
part of a school board member's


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County School Board member Wendy Renfro works from
home Thursday afternoon in Sebring.


job is drawing school boundary
lines within the district.
Students go to the school within
their boundary.
These shifts of boundary
lines are another result of feder-
al legislation, and are required
so that all schools will maintain
a socio-economic balance. If
districts don't comply, the gov-
ernment will come in and direct
the necessary changes.
"Some of our lines are kind
of weird," Renfro said. "We get


a small group over there by the
school board office and trans-
port them to Cracker Trail.
"Once in a while we have to
move the line a little bit to shift
students. You're talking about
uprooting a family from one
school to another and we don't
do it on a whim," she said and
laughed.

Teachers face
challenges
"The classroom is really


challenging today, more so than
years ago. Until we are able to
really bump up our salaries, my
concern is getting good quality
teachers, and then having the
classrooms to put them in.
"I can talk about the good old
days, how when someone acted
out and the teacher went by and
rapped you with a yardstick,
you didn't do that anymore.
And if you went home, you
were in more hot water at home
than you were at school. It's not
that way now.
"Parents will stand up and
they will defend their child and
fight which you want a par-
ent to stand behind their child,
but also a parent can't just have
a blind eye when their child is
challenging."

Paperwork
Paperwork demands by the
district and state have added to
teacher's work load, but local
administrators are looking for
solutions, and legislators in
Tallahassee have proposed a
special committee to look into
the issue statewide. It is to be
made of nine members, three of
them teachers to be nominated
by the commissioner of educa-
tion.
Highlands County officials
have already submitted a
teacher's name in nomination
for that committee.

Optimistic
Renfro is pleased with the
progress Highlands County has
made.
Not too long ago, the board
reorganized the district's orga-
nizational chart. In one major


shift, A director of curriculum
was created, with a coordinator
of elementary programs and a
coordinator of secondary pro-
grams, instead of a director of
elementary and a director of
secondary. Now there is one
person responsible for the entire
kindergarten through 12th
grade educational system.
In one of her first projects,
Dr. Anne Lindsay, director of
curriculum, researched and
chose an intensive reading pro-
gram which has been intro-
duced into the elementary
schools.
"(Dr. Lindsay) spent many,
many hours looking for some-
thing that was tangible, that we
could measure. That was when
we came with the intensive
reading program, and we're
starting right at the elementary
level.
"You hear people talk about
remediation classes, well, we're
hoping over time as the ele-
mentary students move up,
we'll need fewer .and fewer
remediation classes.
"I think over all, Highlands
County does a fairly good job
we have a lot of room for
improvement when it comes to
advanced students but I'm
proud.
"Probably the most reward-
ing thing I get to do, is partici-
pate in graduation. When we
get to sit on stage, and shake
every single graduate's hand,
it's just you know, it gives
you goose bumps."


Division of Forestry CD-ROM teaches wildfire prevention


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Anything you
ever wanted to know about
wildfires in Florida is now on a
disk.
The Florida Division of
Forestry has a CD-ROM with
information on how to protect
your home from wildfire,
including anything you ever
wanted to know about Florida's
fire-based ecology.
- It's all in one package, said
Tim Elder, with the Division of
Forestry office in Sebring. He


has one CD-ROM to give the
presentation, and another to
hand out to individual residents.
After presenting the program to
the Highlands County
Homeowners Association, he
gave out more than 35 individ-
ual disks of information.
Each disk contains interac-
tive programs to help residents
recognize such problems as
overgrown vegetation or nar-
row roads and driveways, that
make fire more likely or makes
fighting that fire more haz-
ardous.


He hopes to have seminars
with individual homeowner
associations to making their
communities "fire wise."
"This is definitely a leap for
us," he said.
In fact, it is such a leap that
California and other western
states have tried to apply the
program to their situations.
"Fire is fire wherever you
go," Elder said.
The disks give residents
information on simple things
they can do, such as keeping the
roof and gutter clean and keep-


ing plants cut back. When wild-
fire approaches, flames don't
have to reach the house if flying
sparks land on a patch of leaves
in the rain gutter or on pine nee-
dles on the roof.
"They can see how it affects
their fire (insurance) rating and
identify the dangers," Elder
said.
He hopes to delve further
into fire ecology with residents,
especially those who are new
either -to Highlands County or
to Florida.
Florida has a 12-month wild-


fire season, because as little as
two weeks without rain at any
time can bring about forest
fires. Usually it's worst in
February when killing freezes
leave brush and grass dry and
ready to burn. The most active
time is December through June,
but the largest number of wild-
fires happen in April and May.
This year, there's another
factor: Dead and uprooted trees
from last year's hurricanes
adding even more fuel. Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is asking


Floridians to be careful with
outdoor fires because those
uprooted trees could make
wildfires worse for years to
come.
Whatever left over debris
people have could also add to
the flames. Bronson has asked
residents to use the lighter
organic material for mulch and
then have the rest either picked
up or haul it to a landfill.
For more information,,call
the Division of Forestry at 655-
6407.

effective, Lutz said to wash with soap, water and
friction. Soap breaks down the oils on your hands
and releases the dirt and germs. Water rises germs
away and friction removes the germs and oils
from the skin.
To demonstrate good hygiene to students, Lutz
puts glow-in-the-dark powder on pens and hands


them to school children. It shows how easily bac-
teria can spread. After they wash their hands, it
shows where they missed, usually the tops of the
thumbs, in-between fingers, under jewelry and
watches, and around the wrists.
After washing, Lutz warns people to dry hands
thoroughly and not to touch the faucet handle
with clean hands, Lutz said. Use a paper towel to
grab the faucet handle and shut it off.

the morning and the afternoon groups rather
small. A good working group is 30 per session,"
he said.
The program actually was slated to run in the
month of February. However, it was pushed back
to April due to Andrews move into the executive
directors-post.


Drury researches and writes his own material.
Since beginning his professional speaking career
in 1985 with the Zig Ziglar Corporation, he
reportedly has given more than 1,000 seminars.
There will be two identical seminars. The first
will be from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and the second will
be from 1-4 p.m. The registration fee is $79 per
person. Those wanting to sign up or needing
more information may call the chamber at 385-

TUFFI, IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


We did it


her way

In the six months of writing
the Tuffin' It With Tuffley fea-
ture, I have spent more time in
beauty salons than I did in the
entire 54 years that went
before.
I mean way more time -
like 100 percent more time.
Not only that, I've spent
enough time in beauty salons
during the last six months, to
have learned basic beauty par-
lor etiquette. For example:
Never take pictures of women
in rollers.
While I sometimes feel
awkward, I have always felt
welcomedin these places of
business, which are often the
communications center of a
neighborhood and crackle with
energy.
Women welcome the odd lot
man into their midst with the
same affectionate smile a dog
owner gives her dearly loved,
but hard to housebreak, pet.
There's a wariness in their
gaze at times, especially if
there are glass shelves with
rows of bottles anywhere near
the exit.
Still, women truly appreci-
ate a man's courage in just
stepping through the door,
which ranks with holding a
wife's hand bag while shop-
ping.
Being generous, women
give you points for trying.

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


It's on the tip of her finger

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun 4
SEBRING When Vicki Musselman was 18 years old, she had
a secure job in a grocery store, which she left for the chance to
work with Vonda Simpson, an experienced manicurist who was
willing to teach her the craft, and give her a start.
It was the best decision Musselman ever made, although it took
her mother several years to believe it.
That was 17 years ago, and Musselman is now a seasoned pro-
fessional; the kind of skilled craftsman who can grind off a cuticle
using an electric motor, and talk to a visitor at the same time, and
make it look easy.
She takes great pride in her work, which produces hands with
evenly finished, well-shaped tips, the nails protected with an
acrylic coat, and decorated with a spectrum of colors with names
$., like "Suzie Sells Sushi by the Seashore" and "Kabuki Queen."
Actually the business has a serious side. The acrylic process
contains several steps, and involves layers of chemicals which in
the wrong combination can be rendered useless, or worse, harmful.
Powerful solvents also can cause damage, she warns, so be sure
approved products are used.
-" Musselman stressed it's wise to find a manicurist who has expe-
rience, which she concedes is one reason it's hard to break into the
& field today.
"I was really lucky when I broke in," she said. "There wasn't
much competition and I had the advantage of an experienced men-
A tor who shared her clientele.
"I don't know how (Simpson) knew (what she knew), but I'm
glad she taught me."
Musselman went on to explain there are two ways to start out as
a nail technician: Work on commission for an established shop; or
V rent booth space in a shop.
-When workitig on commission, the manicurist pays the owner a
S percentage, but the owner provides the supplies and equipment,
A, and can set the manicurist's hours.
%..-7' When renting booth space, the manicurist is an independent
a-~. agent and simply pays rent (currently about $80 to $85 a month),
but has to provide her own supplies and equipment.
Typically, a quality manicure takes an hour. Prices for them vary
and Musselman warns that you get what you pay for. She charges
$10 for a manicure, and $21 for an acrylic fill-in. She was booked
Stthrough the week.
"Be prepared to be poor for a least a year," Musselman said.
"Until you build up a clientele, a lot of it is sitting and waiting."
Like all true craftsmen, Musselman has a style and standards. "If
you want a beach on your nails, I'm not your person. I like normal
nails," she laughed. "The ideal customer is the one who takes as
much pride in her hands as I do in my work."
CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun Musselman works at Today's Creations in the Sebring Square
Vicki Musselman applies polish on a client's nails. It's the next to the last layer in a complicated process, Mall (next door to Dot's Restaurant) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday

WAY
Continued from 11A
Which meant Vicki
Musselman was not going to
let me anywhere near her
clients' hands, when I visited
with her this week at Today's
Creations in Sebring Square.
Musselman is a perfection-
ist, who takes pride in her
work. The idea of me trying to
remove cuticles using the elec-
tric drill she uses was out of
the question, and she wasn't
too keen on my applying
acrylic either, but we'll get to
that in a minute.
Instead, she was willing to
show me step by step, just
why it would be over her dead
body I should ever touch a
nail.
One look at the drill and I
agreed.
And there also was the
chemistry involved; the acrylic
comes in a powder form and
has to be mixed with a liquid
before being applied. There is
little room for error, for acrylic
that doesn't properly adhere to
the nail can lift and create a.
gap. If water gets into the gap
it can lead to mold or discol-
oration. A nail technician has
to know what she (or he) is
doing.
Musselman does, and is a
strict taskmaster in the bar-
gain. For one thing she brooks
no fools, and will do your
nails her way. "I've been
doing this long enough," she
said laughing, "that I can do
what I want. If I don't like it,
you ain't getting it."
Her clients adore her.
At one point, as I was scrib-
bling away, I heard her say,
"Now what are you doing?
Here I am fixing the comer,
and you're not looking."
Paying attention, I saw she
was repairing a tear in the cor-
ner of a nail, filling in the gap
while applying a protective
coat of acrylic which she
would later sand down and
shape. It worked like bondo on
a car, only it wasn't gray.
In fact, the whole process
,roughly resembles the way an
automotive body is restored.
The idea is to create a clean
- surface and then build, with
layers of primers, acrylic, seal-
ers and paint, a shield which
hardens and coats the nail or
car.
There was a definite odor,
by the way, although
Musselman and two of her
clients claimed they didn't
really notice. It was the sol-
vent she used, it smelled like
acetone and took me back to
the fourth grade when I went
on a flying fortress kick and
built 10 models in two months.
I liked the smell, but maybe
there's a good reason you
don't find it much any more,
and Musselman mentioned she
often uses a mask.
This is another occupation
that is highly competitive, hard
to break into, and risky as a
business. A person needs to
have skill and knowledge to do
'it well, and the time to build a
following.

Tanning Ect. provides


darker skin tones


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Office
manager Shannon Van Hyning
is a honey-colored walking bill-
board for Tanning Etc.
It is newly opened and con-
veniently located on the circle
in Lake Placid at 206 West
Interlake Blvd.
"Most men and women find
it is relaxing. They stop in after
work for 10 minutes in the lay-
down bed. It's so very peaceful
and quiet, although some peo-
ple like music piped in," Van
Hyning said.
A single session is $7, or $35
for 10 sessions, and $50 for a
month of unlimited usage.
Teenagers to seniors use the
services, and the number of ses-
sions depends on the individ-
ual. Some people tan more
quickly than others and some
prefer a deeper tone, which
takes a little longer.' Just before
summer, some women like to
have a nice even color so that
they get a head start to prevent
burning under the more direct
rays of the sun. Others just want
to look great in their swimwear.


A month before prom is a pop-
ular time for the glow of a tan,
or if someone wants to be rid of
their tan lines for a special
occasion, they can lay nude in
the tanning beds and get a nice
overall color.
"We like to keep our cus-
tomers happy," Van Hyning
said. "Often customers carry
the tanning lotions in their car,
and over time they lose poten-
cy, so we added a storage area
for them. The next time they
come in for a tanning session
their lotion is here waiting for
them."
The equipment is state-of-
the-art: two stand-up beds by
Sun Dome and two lay-down
beds by Super Elites. In addi-
tion, the business sells tanning
lotion brands such as Designer
Skin, Matahari, Swedish
Beauty, Emerald Bay, Splash
and Boutique. Also offered are
moisturizers, swimsuits and
summer wear.
Hours are from 9 a.m. to 8
p.m. Monday through Friday
and 9.a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Walk-ins are welcome, or call
465-9977 for an appointment or
gift certificate.

SR Kidney patients benefit



from new clinic in town


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Highlands
County's newest clinic, the
American Renal Associates -
Highlands Dialysis Center,
offers a big advantage for kid-
ney patients.
Normally a kidney patient
consults a nephrologist first, but
when the kidneys no longer
function adequately, dialysis is
recommended. Patients usually
come from the hospital and are
referred to the clinic on an out-
patient basis, where they spend
three to four hours on the dialy-
sis machine three days a week.
In the future, it will be able to
accommodate as many as 11
patients beginning at 6:30 a.m.
When those are finished, the
machines are cleaned and reset
for another 11.
Patients are from Avon Park,
Lake Placid, Sebring, and some
as far away as Wauchula. They
have a choice of Sebring or
Lakeland. However, those
needing county transportation
are required to be taken to the
closest facility.
Patients are mostly 40 to 50
years old, although they've
treated a 2-year-old.
"It's not uncommon to stay
on dialysis for 20 years,"
Mickey Le Blanc, manager of
the clinic said. "If people get
the entire treatment and take
their medications, they can live
a long time." Another option is
to be referred to the transplant
center in Miami, Orlando or
Tampa.
This office is brand new,
opened by the American Renal
Clinic of Tampa. The two med-
ical directors are Dr. Fernando
Abanilla and Dr. Ernesto
Pinzon, while Le Blanc is a reg-
istered nurse who has worked in
dialysis for 20 years.
"You get to know all the
patients for man\ year.," Le
Blanc said. "The patient-care
technicians hook up and moni-
tor patients and I help them as

needed, and also with lab
work."
"Our company is independ-
ently owned and the fifth
largest dialysis provider in the
nation. "We are patient-oriented
and focused on their care and
outcome," Le Blanc said.
Highlands Dialysis Center is
a new Medicare certified outpa-
tient treatment facility.
The American Renal


Associates Highlands
Dialysis Center is at 4245 Sun
'N Lake Blvd. (across from
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center). Hours are
presently 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday, Wednesday and
Friday, but will soon be
expanding to every day exclud-
ing Sunday to accommodate
patients. Call 382-9443 for

Enforce what is
on the books
Editor:
There have been many let-
ters to the editor about county
and city code enforcement.
There are codes established but
it appears no enforcement of
those codes.
Here in Avon Park Lakes one
can find tractor trailers parked
in driveways and all along the
road every night. There are
those that have broken lawn
tractors, non running trucks,
aluminum junk pieces laying
their yards along with old cut
up wood waiting for the next
hurricane to blow them into
their neighbor's homes.
One home on our street has


several pallets piled over six
feet high in their lawn. It is
time to enforce the codes that
are on the books.
One letter stated one man's
junk is another man's treasure
but, when that junk becomes a
missile hazard during high
winds or lowers the value of all
the homes in that area it is time
to clean up the treasure. Is this
not why we have the codes in
the first place?
We pay taxes to pay for code
enforcement and if there are
not enough code enforcement
officers then let's raise the
taxes and hire them before the
next hurricane. One way to do
this would be to change the
homestead exemption act such
that only full-time Florida resi-
dents are eligible for this bene-


fit. -
The man who is the worst
offender on our street came to
my house and told me if I did
not like it, I could move; how-
ever, I am not going anywhere
and I will continue to fight until
we get enforcement of the
codes that are on the books.

LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware

Cat fight
When I was growing up, we
had a cat. He was a real alley
cat (we found him in a
Brooklyn alley). He was black,
so we called him Inky.
Inky was a typical tomr cat.
He roamed all over the neigh-
borhood. He got into fights
with other cats. Once he broke
his leg. Mom had a shelf in the
refrigerator that was reserved
for medications to treat Inky's
war wounds.
I'm pretty sure he had a col-
lar. He was not the most social
of beings, unless you were my
brother, whom he loved above
all other humans.
I bring all this up not just to
give you another pet story, but
to present my -credentials for
knowing something about cats.
This gives me some authority
to discuss Wisconsin voters
recently approving a proposal
that could declare stray cats fair
game for hunters.
Let's get to the details here.'
The proposal, if approved by
the Wisconsin Legislature,
would designate "feral" cats as
a nuisance, the same as skunks.
Such cats could be shot by
hunters that possessed a small
game license.
What is a "feral cat" you
ask? As far as I can make out
from the articles I read, a' cat
could be defined in this manner
if it wasn't wearing a collar and
acting in an "unfriendly" man-
ner.
OK, this is a dangerous defi-
nition in my book. Come on,
how many friendly cats do you
know? By their very nature cats
are not exactly warm and
social. There's a saying -
"dogs come when called; cats
leave messages."
Now I am sure the -above
paragraph is heating the tem-
pers of cat lovers throughout
Highlands County, who can't
wait to get a hold of me and tell
me how their cats are loving
and affectionate. Look, no
offense, but your cat is acting
out of character. Most cats treat
the human race -as if it is some
great privilege to share the
world with us.
Given this, I am concerned
about designating a cat a nui-
sance if it is acting "unfriend-
ly." What is unfriendly? Not
coming when called? Arching
its back? Treating you like a
lower life form?
Proponents of the measure
argue there are too many stray
cats and they are killing song-
birds. The originator of the
measure, firefighter Mark
Smith, got tired of finding cat
prints around his birdfeeder
and. thus the fur (or is it feath-
ers?) started to fly. Those
opposing this agree there are
too many strays, but advocate
trapping and neutering the
strays before releasing them or
finding homes for them.
OK, I like songbirds as much
as the next person. Also, I think
I need to say I have nothing
against hunters. But this is silly.
What's going to happen if
someone hunting comes across
Granny's tabby that slipped out
of its collar? Cats are not good
at staying in their own yards.
I also happen to agree that
there are probably too many
strays. I find it appalling that
there are people who will take
an animal that has lived in their
home and dump them on the
side of the road. It is unkind
and cruel. For a number of
them it is probably tantamount
to a death sentence. If you take
on a pet, understand you have
made an unwritten contract
with a living thing, and kicking
it out of its home without giv-

Letting go to make way for school


I made that call
today, the one that
mothers of pre-school
aged children make
every year to find out
about registering for
kindergarten for the
next school year.
It is a ritual, one


GRANI
Wisi
Dia
Thibo


with very mixed emotions.
Pride for the children, concern
about how they will feel about
the "big school" and sadness
over how fast they are growing
up.
For those of us who are rais-
ing either grandchildren or kin
children, it is also a time of his-
tory repeating itself. Thirty one
years ago I was registering my
first born into kindergarten, two
years later it was his sister that
was being registered. Now I am
finding myself doing this all
over again.
Looking ahead I see Cub
Scouts, Boy Scouts, t-ball,
Little League, football, first
dates, proms and graduations
for a long time to come. None
of that scares me, and I am
looking forward to watching
these two little boys grow into
young men with the same hopes
and dreams that all young
mothers have.
One difference is that I have
been there before. I am not as
young as I was 31 years ago
although the boys keep me
young at heart. I have more
experience now then I did way
back when.
Will I be the oldest
"Mommy" in the class? Maybe,
but then again, maybe not. With
the rise of children being raised
and adopted by their grandpar-
ents, there could be an older
mommy then me.


Another difference
y for many of those that
DMA S are now raising
DOM grandchildren is that
they are like me,
ne doing it alone and on
deau a very limited
- income. Either
through retirement or
disability, there are no longer
the weekly or biweekly pay-
checks. It is all down to a
monthly income that you get at
the beginning of the month and
is long gone by the second
week of the month. You learn to
make do and so do the children.
After listening to many sto-
ties of what others are going
through in protecting these
innocent children, I count my
blessings. Many are still deal-
ing with the biological parents
that call them "child stealers.".
Many are dealing with the legal
hassles that are often a part of
the process.
Sadly, it is often their retire-
ment savings that are being
used to protect the children
while the biological parents'
fees are paid for by the state.
Another difference would be
physical limitations. I have
them but know many much
worse off then I am.
No, we may not. be able to
run -like a 25-year-old parent
can, but we work around our
limitations to care for these
children. We have learned what
we can and cannot do, and the
children have learned that too.
When I read .or hear about
children that have been kid-
napped by their drug addicted
parents) and told that they
would rather be seen dead than
living with their grandparents, I
cry. To hear about another child


that has been sexually or physi-
cally abused by their biological
parents makes me angry and
sad. To know that these events
occur daily throughout the
United States makes it hard to
sleep at night.
My young sons have always
had the same home. They do
not suffer from the nightmares
that many children being raised
by grandparents do. They have
not seen the horrors that many
of these children have seen.
They have had fairly stable
young lives because I was able
to step in when they were very
young.
They have both a Daddy and
a Mommy that love them, the
way all children should have.
The only difference is that I am
also Daddy's mother.
The older of the two boys
does recall some of the chaos
that went on for awhile. The
younger of the two does not, so
that does show that nine months
in the life of a child does make
a difference,with the input they
receive from outward sources.
With the rising numbers of us
that have stepped in to protect
our grandchildren and kin chil-
dren, I fear that at some point in
the future we will be the major-
ity rather then a minority. More
and more grandmas will be
either picking up children at
school that are either in their
custody or that they have adopt-
ed.
My young sons do not know
me as Grandma. I am their
"Mommy" in their hearts and
on their birth certificates and
look at strangers odd when they
hear "your grandma." I am
Mommy.
Will our raising these chil-


- again
dren benefit the future? I truly
feel that the world will be a bet-
ter place because we are raising
them.
These children are learning
lessons that seem to have been
forgotten about over the years.
They are learning that you can-
not have everything you see and
how to make do on a limited
budget. They are learning that
physical limitations are there
for some and that they need to
be respected, but that also, you
can do what you set out to do
despite limitations.
Sadly, they are also learning
firsthand what drugs, alcohol,
and wrong choices can do to an
entire family. Many of the teens
I have spoken with that have
seen the chaos that these things
cause have already chosen to
stay away from them. With that
insight already, I think they can.

Letter is full of
'hogwash'
Editor:
The recent letter by Gabriel
Read is so full of hogwash it is
almost too distorted to respond
to.
In his diatribe against
Republicans in general and the
Bushs in particular, he has
blamed the Republicans for just
about everything.
He states in his letter that the
Congress in 1981 decimated
the Social Security fund that is
responsible for the projected
shortfall. He omits that in 1965
Lyndon Johnson with the
approval of a Democratic
Congress transferred the Social
Security fund to the general
fund in order to pay for his
"Great Society."
And his and Robert
McNamara's War, sometimes
referred to as the Vietnam War.
These two moves by a
Democratic controlled
Congress and a Democratic
president (arguably, until
Carter, the worst president in
American history) created a
whole generation of welfare
recipients and cost the U.S.
58,000 U.S. uniformed service-
men's lives. It took a
Republican president, Richard
Nixon, and a Republican
Congress to successfully get us
out of this nightmare.
Ronald Reagan and a
Republican Congress passed
the welfare reform bill, which
placed people in job training
and to be productive citizens.
But it's not over yet, there
are still Democrats in Congress
that are trying to get the wel-
fare reform bill repealed; after


all, most Americans on welfare
are Democrats and that equals
votes.

Ball's lesson in
driving is right
Editor:
In response to Charlie Ball
on right and left turns, I have
been driving 56 years and was
taught in school turning in
lanes the way Charlie says.
There are several places that
are bad.
1. Tomoka Boulevard, going
or coming into hospital.
2. Getting into McDonald's
in Lake Placid.
They are the two worst ones.

Consequences
can happen
Editor:
I've been reading various
opinions on the Terri Schiavo
case.
Though I'm not very well
versed legally and have no
comment from that angle, I
can't understand how anyone
could force his will at the
expense of another's life. God
gives life and also takes it and
doesn't need anyone's help
doing it. When we take matters
into our own hands, we can
expect consequences. He is still
in control. I certainly wouldn't
want to be in Mr. Schiavo's
place. May God have mercy on
him; I fear he just might need
it.

History Lesson
20 Years Ago
April 19, 1985: After older
brother Thomas struck out
16 in a one-hit victory over
Mulberry, Anthony Gordon
threw a no-hitter in Avon
Park's 2-0 regular-season-
ending win against DeSoto.
The younger Gordon struck
out seven and walked five
as he lifted the Red Devils
to their eighth straight vic-
tory.

25 Years Ago
April 18, 1980: Glen
Scarpa's sacrifice fly to cen-
ter frove home Doug
Hehriquez with the winning
run in the 11th inning to
give SFJC a 5-4 victory over
St. Petersburg at Head
Field. Reliever Steve
Piermatteo scattered nine
hits over the last six innings
to earn the win.

in Diamond Club event


News-Sun
AVON PARK A low round
can come from anywhere on the
course.
The first flight team of Travis
Dunn and Dan Pelfrey proved that
correct Saturday, trumping all
championship flight golfers with a
10-under 62 at River Greens in the
11th annual Edwin Carter Memorial
Diamond Club Golf Classic.
"We played good team golf. I was
surprised that we had the lowest
score," said Dunn, a former Avon
Park Red Devil golfer. "We just
played good all around. We had
some good drives and some good
iron play."
Dunn, who plays the course
weekly, said he and Pelfrey played


off of each other's solid perform-
ance in the two-man scramble.
"My partner had me in good
shape where I could hit driver on a
lot of holes I normally wouldn't,"
he said.
Three teams got together for a
match of cards to determine the
championship flight winner, and
with a better score on the fourth

Devils polish off Streaks


Senior lead way as

Avon Park completes

season sweep of rivals
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Senior night at Avon
Park could not have been sweeter.
Senior third baseman Meghann Jackson
threw across the diamond to classmate
Jenna Kniffen for the final out in a 6-2 win
on Friday that. gave senior pitcher
Katherine Landress a personal two-game
sweep of the Lady Blue Streaks this year,
"That's why we wanted her to pitch
Avon Park tonight," Avon Park head
6 coach Mike Cobb said. "She
held up her end of it."
Sebring The fourth senior on the
2 Lady Red Devils (12-6)
2 came through, too, as
Annesly Wood's 2-for-3
night was trumped only by the 3-for-4
effort from left-fielder Julie Lamb.
"Julie found out she likes hitting high-
est on the team," Cobb said of his leadoff
hitter, who entered batting in the .330s and
was the team's leader in RBIs. "She's
decided she wants to stay there."
Lamb and Wood, along with Heather
Barnes, came together to ignite the Avon
Park offense in the third inning. With the
game tied 1-1, the trio came up with con-
secutive singles, and all scored to put the
Devils up for good.
"If you don't go up there swinging,
you're not going to do very well," said
Cobb, who preaches an aggressive

approach at the plate. "They're swinging
the bats."
The Avon Park success came at the
expense of Sebring pitcher Maggie
Statler, who nonetheless hung, in for a
complete game.
"She pitched good enough to win,"
Sebring head coach Lee Tolar said. "We
just couldn't get the hits she needed."
Yet, the Streaks (9-12) threatened to
:rally in the fifth, and after Landress (4-3)
allowed a double to Kayla Dunn and an
RBI single to Chastity Godfrey, Amanda
Tindell was brought in the circle, and the


junior gave up three hits but no runs in 22/
innings of relief.
"We got a good showing tonight from
both of them," Cobb said of his pitchers.
"Using both pitchers has been the plan
pretty much every since Katherine got in
shape."
The pair's ability to escape from jams
frustrated Sebring, which left eight run-
ners on base and had multi-hit nights from
four players.

Tough loss for Panthers

News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID The Green
Dragons baseball team did not play well
defensively during the latest cold front
to blow into the Heartland. Head coach
Dan Coomes can only hope it
was the last cold front of the sea- Har
son, and that his players will start
making the plays down the
stretch as the season heats up. Lake f
Coach Steve Rewis had his
Hardee Wildcats on a mission
and they clawed and snarled
their way to a 10-2 win on a cold and
windy night Friday at Roger
Scarborough Memorial Field. Left-
handed starting pitcher Drew Schock
struck out 11 Green Dragons against
just one walk over the first four innings
of the game to get the victory. Lake
Placid (9-11 overall) got just four hits
off of Schock and one earned run.


Senior starter Steven Levine and the
Green Dragons were hanging tough
with the 'Cats through the first three
innings, but as has become a trend with
Lake Placid since opening the season 7-
0, a "bad inning" found a way to bite
them and extinguish their flame.
eet Brandon Bierman opened the
bottom of the second inning with a
single to right field, stole second
Placid and scored on Alex Delgado's
clutch two-out single to center
field to put Lake Placid on top 1-0.
Delgado was the only Green
Dragon to figure out Schock, getting
two of the four Dragon hits off the
southpaw and finishing the game 3-for-
3 after rifling a one-out single to right
off reliever Will Krause in the seventh.
The Wildcats came back to tie the
game when Aaron Himrod (3-for-4) led

By SCOIT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK If Friday
night is any indication, there's
no telling what could happen in
the District 10-3A tournament
that starts April 25 in
Frostproof.
The first-place Avon Park
Red Devils came into the game
against No. 3 DeSoto eyeing a
stretch run that could have
clinched the top seed for the
tourney. They left needing to
win their last two district
games to assure themselves of
at least a No. 2 seed after the
Bulldogs,took a 5-2 win.
The Devils (10-9 overall, 6-2
in the district) are locked in a
battle with Hardee for the top
spot, although the regular-sea-
son title is really just for brag-
ging rights since the top two
teams get the all-important
first-round bye.
But DeSoto's DeSoto
win proved that
even those top 5
two seeds will Avon Park
not have easy
sailing into the 2
championship
game.
"We feel like all the teams in
the district can come out and

DeSoto coach Whit Cornell
said. "Hopefully, during district
week, we'll peak."
The Bulldogs (12-6, 6-3)
seem to be peaking already,
winning their seventh straight

in the season that included all
three of their district losses, one
of them to0 the Devils.
"We had one bad week,"
Cornell said, adding that his
team is learning how to win.

lose."
The Devils, on the other
hand, may have been distracted
by Saturday night's prom, but
head coach Mort Jackson said
that wasn't the reason for the
loss.
"Not to make excuses, but
this is a baseball coach's worst

News-Sun
WINTER HAVEN The second stop on the
American Le Mans Series circuit takes to the,
track today with the Sportsbook.com Grand Prix
of Atlanta.
A team that comes close to qualifying as "local
boys" will be easy to spot as the Polk County-
based Miracle Motorsports will once again carry
an on-board camera.
The JeanRichard Watches sponsored Courage
C65 took the checkers in. the LMP2 division at
last month's running of the Mobil I 12 Hours of
Sebring.
Today's race (1 p.m., CBS) will run on the
2.54-mile, 12-turn Road Atlanta course which
has played host to at least one major professional
sports car event every year since 1970, including
Can-Am, IMSA GT and, more recently, the
ALMS.
Miracle will have some new competition this
time around, as a pair of LMP2 teams which did
not compete at Sebring will debut at Atlanta.
Both also plan to race at other ALMS events this
year.
The Mazda-powered No. 8 B-K Motorsports


Courage will be driven by James Bach of
Saukville, Wis., and Guy Cosmo of West Palm
Beach.
The No. 19 van der Steur Racing Lola B2K/40
AER will be driven by brothers Gunnar and Erik
van der Steur, along with Ben Devlin.
The former is a rookie ALMS team, while the
latter has previously competed in the series, three
times in 2004.
Fans in Georgia also will have a chance to see
the Maserati MC12 factory GT1 team with driv-
ers Andrea Bertolini and Fabrizio DeSimone.
Maserati finished ninth overall and fifth in
class in its maiden ALMS run at Sebring.
The MC12 will have 30 kilograms of ballast
added for the Atlanta race. The FIA GT Bureau
has decided to add 10 kilograms, and IMSA will
add 20 more kilograms for a total weight of 1,130

. Still, the Blue Streaks trailed
only 4-2 going into the bottom
of the sixth, when Avon Park
used a sacrifice fly from
Shantavia Conner and a Julie
Lamb RBI single to pick up two
more runs and some breathing
room.
"The runs that we gave up in


the sixth were big," Tolar said.
"My hat's off to Avon Park."
The loss was a major blow to
Sebring's hopes of overcoming
Lemon Bay for second place in
District 14-4A, since the teams
are deadlocked and the
tiebreaker is overall record, but
Tolar knows the true do-or-die
time is in postseason.

get it done."

off the top of the third with a
single and scored after desig-
nated hitter Calvin Brutus
reached on the first of six Lake
Placid errors. Hardee blew the
game wide open in the top .of
the fourth inning, with five,
unearned runs on four hits and
two Lake Placid errors. Weston
Palmer (2-for-5, 3 runs) had a
RBI single and Brutus drove in
another run with a bad hop
double off of Lake Placid third
baseman Bierman to boost the
lead to 6-1.
W.T. Redding's RBI double
down the right-field line off
reliever Bierman was the big
shot in Hardee's three-run sixth
to bulge the lead to 9-1. Levine
walked in the sixth and later
scored on a balk to close to 9-2,
but Palmer singled up the mid-
dle with one out the seventh
and scored on Lake Placid's
final error to end game scoring.
Levine gave up one earned
run in four innings of work.
The Wildcats got eight hits off
of Levine, but it was the defen-
sive play by the Dragons that
hurt them the most. P.J. Milisci,
who made several running
catches in center field, came on
in relief to pitch a perfect fifth
inning, striking out two.

ballgames, we're still one or
two. If we handle our business,
it really doesn't make a differ-
ence."
The main problem the Devils
had, Jackson said, was issuing
walks, as starter Michael Diaz
struggled with his control. He
put seven Bulldogs on base in
four innings of work and also
threw two run-scoring wild
pitches, which allowed the
Bulldogs to get away with mak-
ing six errors in the game.
"The bottom line is, when
you're facing a. pretty good
team you can't give them free
bases," Jackson said. "That's
the difference in the ball game."
DeSoto pitcher Trey Hill hit
the first pitch of the game down
the right-field line for a triple
and scored on a wild pitch, and
four walks in the inning gave
the Bulldogs another run. A
Daniel Price single in the third
set the stage for the third run,
also on a wild pitch, but the

business, it really
doesn 't make a

Bulldogs got the strangest run
of the night in the top of the
fourth, with the bases loaded
after a dropped pop-up and two
walks.
A pitch to Price was low and
bounced off catcher Luke
Sedlock's mask and into his
chest protector, by rule moving
the runners ahead one base and
scoring Caden Cross to make it
4-0. Jonathan Jones put DeSoto
up 5-0 in the top of the seventh
with a home run against a stiff
wind blowing in from left field.


"He came in to play
defense," Comell said of Jones.
"I told him if it was the right
situation, he could stay in to hit
and he took advantage of it."
The Devils tried to rally in
the bottom of the seventh, scor-
ing two runs on and error and
singles by Chavious Gordon,
Devaris Strange and Diaz, but
Hill (5-1) struck out the final
two batters of the night giv-
ing him, 10 against no walks -
to end the game.
"When you don't have to
field the ball, it's a lot easier to
play," Cornell said.
"When I look back now, I
could have squeezed on at least
three separate occasions, and if
it worked, got three runs and
that was a tie ballgame at the
end, but when you're down 4-0,
you're looking for a big
inning," Jackson said.
"If we could have just come
through in any one of the other
innings and gotten a hit and got
a couple of runs, we could have
made that real interesting."
The most interesting part of
the season, however, could still
be yet to come.

have six people ready to go.

NET goes to prison
When inmates complete the
Bible correspondence courses
with Little Lambs, they are
always asking for something
else to study. Now, the Salas
will be able to offer graduates
of their correspondence courses
the opportunity to take NTI's
NET studies as well (without
the benefit of CEUs).
"We will make this available
to those whom we feel would
benefit from it; graduates who
have spent at least 1 1/2 years
with us," John said.

To sum up
Through this cluster training,
Little Lambs Inc. is being
entrusted with the NET
Training Institute's mission:
"To raise the standard of
spiritual clinical practical
care provided by people of faith
to hurting people by offering
specialized training in counsel-
ing, ministry, addiction,. pre-
vention, program development
and recovery support services."
Little Lambs is ready to lead
the charge in Highlands County
for a new front line in God's
army of compassion.
Enroll now
Class will begin as early as
May.
Call the Little Lambs office
at 471-2626 or visit its Web
site: www.littlelambsinc.org for
more information.
Though this is a self-study
course, the group times will
also include some multi-media
presentations where profession-
als will speak and teach. But
the Cluster Study Program is
designed to be led by an experi-
enced facilitator (the Salas in
this case) while the educational
content is contained in the text-
books and the self-study
guides.

I Corinthians 1:20 -29, *'For

the weak things of the world to put to shame
the things which are mighty; and the base
things of the world and the things which are
despised God has chosen, and the things which
are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
that no flesh should igloy in His presence.".
Here if you notice, Gods plan of Salvation
does not conform toh world's priorities. Our
salvation is more v than all the wealth
and success pursue J he world. God uses
what is considered h;h in this world to
reveal His truth, so e alone will receive
the glory. The last ys, no flesh should

Noxious chinaberry trees produce beautiful blooms but should be avoided


Chinaberry (Melia
azedarach) is a native tree
throughout Asia, including
India, China and Taiwan. In
Florida and much of the United
States, it has become well
established as a noxious exotic
species.
It is a plant you should get to
know and, in the opinion of the
Florida Exotic Plant Council,
avoid if possible.
This fast-growing tree can
reach a height of 50 feet or
more. This means that if you
have one near your home or in
your yard, storms can can blqw
them over and you may be


seeking the services
of a tree removal
company or home
repair service. You
could end up spend-
ing hard-earned dol-
lars on a tree that
clutters your yard
and presents a danger
few recognize.
The danger is real
- all parts of the
chinaberry trees are
poisonous. Eating a
few berries can cause
severe nausea and
even death. In one
case, a tourist visiting

Because chinaber-

should be taught
never to eat any part of
them and that

Home makeovers don't require money when imagination is engaged


It seemed like a normal
request, a letter to "Decorating
Sense" asking the television
show to put some color in a pre-
teen girl's room.
What the TV crew found
when they arrived was a home
decorated entirely in black,
white and gray. When the cam-
era showed the girl's room, it
looked like the reception had
changed back to the days of
black and white. The crew dec-
orated that room in shades of
hot to pale pink.
Mom's reason for her deco-
rating scheme was that she was
"afraid of color," so she opted
for a beautiful home that was a
symphony of black and white.
Like any tune played over and
over, it got to be boring.
How about the home decorat-
ing show that tried to find the
worst kitchen in the country.
Turns out it found one covered
in red-flocked wallpaper not
just the walls, but the
microwave, the range hood, and
every cupboard surface! That


was really taking wallpapering
too far!
You can imagine the difficul-
ty of cleaning anything in that
kitchen especially with the
red shag rug underfoot.
I'm sure your house doesn't
bear any resemblance to the
above mentioned, but it might
need a updating a change of
color, perhaps, or new appli-
ances.
Before you exercise your
muscles by painting, wallpaper-
ing, or moving furniture, why
not exercise your library card?
The Heartland Library
Cooperative libraries have
dozens of books on changing
the looks of your home. It does-
n't matter whether you have a
house trailer, a duplex, a single
family home, or a luxury man-
sion, decorating should reflect
your interests and be a place of
comfort and calm.
Reserve a few titles, do some
measuring, sample paint colors,
and look at drawings to save
yourself time, work and costly


mistakes. Start with
"The Reader's
Digest Complete
Book of Home
Decorating,"
"Creative Window
Treatments: Forty-
five Styles Shown
Step-by-Step,"
"Shell Chic: The
Ultimate Guide to
Decorating Your
Home with Sea
Shells," Rachel
Ashwell's "Shabby
Chic Treasure


LIBRARY LINES

Carolyn
Hesselink


Hunting and Decorating
Guide," "Low Sew Window
Treatments," "Decorating With
Paint and Wallcovering,"
"Contemporary Decorating,"
"Country Style," "Flea Market
Finds: Before and After,"
"Creative Living. -Room
Decorating," "South Florida
Home Book: A Complete
Hands-on-Design Sourcebook,"
"Debbie Travis' Decorating
Solutions: More than 65 Paint
and Plaster Finishes for Every
Room in Your House,"


"Creative Kitchen
Decorating" and
"Home Decorating
With Fabric: More
Than 80 Great
Projects from
Cushions to
Comforters.
By searching our
library's on-line cata-
log using the term
"home decorating,"
you can find many
other titles that might
be just what you
need.


Let's say that you don't have
much money to spend on deco-
rating, no matter how much it
may need it. The program
"Design Remix" uses a three-
person crew and a maximum of
$50 to spruce up a home. I've
discovered that rearranging
your furniture, repainting old,
scarred furniture, and pulling
items from different parts of the
house to "remix" them in a new
way can be the answer.
If that's the case, check out
the perfect book, "Use What


You Have Decorating:
Transform Your Home in One
Hour with Ten Simple Design
Principles." Naturally, it may
take more than an hour to read
the book, but it's better for you
and your house than ai' hour
watching reruns. What better
way to greet spring than by
using your newly acquired dec-
orating sense!
