Highlands Hammock



to celebrate Earth Day


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Rangers at
Highlands Hammock State Park are
finishing up preparations for
Saturday's annual Earth Day cele-
brations.
Ranger Dorothy Harris said there
will be a wide variety of activities
and exhibits including everything
from the very old to the very new.
"One new thing is that we'll have
the Time Travelers who will do a re-
enactment of pioneer life before
1840," she said.
The Friends of Highlands
Hammock, a support group for the
park, have paid for the north Florida
group to come in and demonstrate
how life was for the earliest settlers
of the Sunshine State.

Law Day

Award
Branham receives
Judge Kelly Award
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING This year's
Law Day Award recipient
for Highlands County has
been involved in making
life better for the youth in
the community for quite
some time.
Before she held an elect-
ed law enforcement posi-
tion, Sheriff Susan Benton
helped establish or worked
with the Children's
Advocacy Center, school
resource officer program,
See BENTON, page 7A


In addition to its encampment, the
group will offer a tomahawk throw
for those who want to try it, a black
powder demonstration as well as
some games that children might
have played during that time.
"They're also going to do some
'cooking on a Dutch oven over an
open campfire," she said.
One of the newest things at the
Saturday celebration will be a 14-
foot caterpillar slide.
"It has a rock climbing wall on
one side and a slide on the other,"
Harris said. "I can't wait to try it."
She intimated that she had been in
search of a bounce house for the
youngsters when she was made
aware of the newly acquired feature.
Between the community yard sale
and the arts and crafts show, Harris


said there would be at least 60 dif-
ferent vendors and tables.
There will be a lot of exhibits
including live snakes being put on
display by the Archbold Biological
Station, the fire prevention house
and Peace River Electric Co-opera-
tive's "Electric Junction" public
safety demonstration.
As in the past, Lakeside Stables
will be there with an assortment of
horses and ponies for rides through-
out much of the day.-...
A full schedule of musical per-
formances will be offered all day
ranging from the Highlands Brigade
bagpipe band to a performance by a
new group. Dubbed "Billy Needs a
Beard," the group is described as
"alternative folk."

Colby sues



to look at


hurricane


records
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County public safe-
ty expert Preston Colby has filed suit against a
number of county officials in search of records
having to do with decisions made during the trio
of hurricanes that swept through the area in
August and September of last year.
Named as defendants in the suit are the
Highlands County Board of County
Commission, Highlands County Administrator
Carl Cool, Highlands County Public
Information Officer Sarah Beth Hopton and
Highlands County Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichols.
Colby alleged extortion in I'
his attempt to get public
records having to do with deci-
sions made during hurricane
meetings.
"They demanded that I pay COLBY
in advance to research records
and there's no provision in the law for that,"
Colby contended.
He paid the $65.12 that was requested but he
still does not have the records he wants.
In his complaint, Colby alleged that for a
period of time beginning in August 2004, the
defendants, the board, Cool and Nichols had
directed various public employees under their
control to create and compile documents, in
connection with the "actions, meetings deci-.
sions and recommendations" of a "Hurricane

Highlands


gearing up


for this year's


hurricanes
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Wednesday morning,
Emergency Management Director Bill Nichols
gathered everyone he could at the Emergency
Operation Center for a pre-hurricane meeting.
Hurricane season doesn't start for another 10
weeks, but Nichols wants the county to be better
prepared this time than it was last year.
That's saying a lot. Craig Fugate, emergency
management director at the Department of
Community Affairs, Division of Emergency
Management, told an attorney for the Florida
Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental
Relations that the state should ask Highlands
County officials how to handle hurricanes at a
county level.
"He (Fugate) said he needed to pick up
Highlands County and move it somewhere else
to show them how it should be done," County
Administrator Carl Cool said.
Immediately after each hurricane, county
officials held debriefing sessions to discuss what
worked and what didn't and improve the disas-
ter response. By the time Hurricane Jeanne hit,
the county was more than ready.
One lesson was to put portable toilets inside
the shelters so people would not overwork the
facilities. The county improved emergency
response by requiring emergency operation per-
sonnel to plan for their families to evacuate or
seek shelter so they could focus on their tasks.
Nichols also had the EOC hotline activated 24
hours before the projected arrival of a storm to
help dispel rumors.
"I'm more comfortable with us being pre-
pared for a hurricane than we have ever been,"
Cool said.
Still, Nichols wants everyone in the county to
know they can't be stagnant: "We need to keep
improving."
On Wednesday, Nichols handed out a two and

its exemplary effort to
assist the school board
after being hit by three hur-
ricanes in six weeks during
the 2004 Hurricane Season.
"This is a great honor,"
said Tim Eures, director of
emergency operations.
"But it's an honor accepted
on behalf of an entire com-

New named United Way's top volunteer


Given new

chainsaw for

hurricane cleanup
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Steve New got
more at Wednesday's United
Way of Central Florida,
Highlands County annual meet-
ing than just the crystal trophy
cup 2004 Volunteer of the Year
award.
He also got a new 22-inch
gas-powered chainsaw from
John Bedwell, of Sebring
Outdoor Equipment, to replace
his father's saw. He wore the
saw out during last year's hurri-
cane season and later it was
stolen. New spent much of his
time last year helping people
clear trees and debris off their
homes and yards.
New, of Florida Hospital in
Lake Placid, has volunteered
with United Way for the last 10-
12 years. United Way volunteer
Doris Gentry said New is the
first to arrive at events and the
last to leave, whether he volun-
teers with Ridge Area Arc,
Habitat for Humanity or his
church.
He volunteered to chair the
county's short-term relief com-
mittee and then would volun-
teer his own time and energy to
make sure those needs were
met. When the short-term com-
mittee became the long-term
recovery committee, also called
Highlands Emergency
Recovery Operation, he volun-
teered to take part, again.
He was joined this year by
Benjamin Au yang, 11, of Avon
Park, who received an honor as
the 2004 Youth Volunteer of the
Year.

whether helping the Jaycees of local Humane Society chapters.

Executive Director Cheryl Sharp presents 2004 Volunteer of the
Year Steve New with a new 22-inch gas-powered chainsaw from
John Bedwell, Sebring Outdoor Equipment, to replace the one that
was worn out and stolen during last year's hurricane season. New
was honored as volunteer of the year at Wednesday's United Way of
Central Florida, Highlands County annual meeting.


In the aftermath of last year's
hurricanes, Au yang felt a
strong need to help children, so
he started "Operation Baby" to
collect baby goods for families
with very young children.
When outgoing executive direc-
tor Susie Bishop arrived at Park
Elementary School to collect
the donations, it barely fit into
the United Way van.
Right after that, Au yang
started "Operation Gratitude" to
thank people whose efforts are
usually overlooked or forgotten,
such as emergency workers,
school maintenance people and
case workers for the Federal


Emergency Management
Agency.
When the tsunami hit last
December, he held a penny
drive to help recovery efforts.
This year's 2004 Citizen of
the Year was Bob Immel, of
Sebring. Terry Worthington,
president of United Way of
Central Florida, said Immel has
volunteered to his community
wherever he lived in his 75 year
life. This included the Jaycees
and local humane society chap-
ters. He also served the
Highlands County United Way
chapter by serving as the loaned
executive for three years, and as

there's a quarter of the lights in

"We use the 1-800-228-8485
number to tell Progress Energy
if the lights are out," Sebring
City Clerk Kathy Haley said.
The deal the city has with the
energy giant is that the city pro-
vides the lights, while residents
pay the power bills to keep
them on at night.
Initially it had been suggest-
ed that city workers or police-
men might keep track of which
lights were operating and which
ones were not. However, that


notion was quickly discarded.

"You don't want to have an
officer out of his cruiser late at
night checking the numbers on
light poles," Whitlock com-
mented. "They have more
important things to do."

Instead, it was agreed that
citizens would be much more
aware of what was happening in
their individual neighborhoods
and were totally capable of
reporting. inoperable lights to

'a Highlands County report


Powell charged

with cocaine
possession
SEBRING At 2:30 a.m.
Tuesday, a Highlands County
sheriff's deputy was watching
the stop sign at School Street
and E.O. Douglas Street. He
saw a white Ford F150
approach the stop on School
Street at 20 mph, run the sign
and turn onto E.O. Douglas
Street.
He stopped the truck and as
he walked up, saw the driver
Anthony Powell, 49, of
Sebring sticking three
objects into his mouth. The
deputy called in the narcotics
K-9 unit while writing Powell
citations for running the stop
sign and not having his vehi-
cle registration.
When the K-9 unit arrived,
the deputy had Powell get out
of the truck while the dog
sniffed the truck and alerted
to narcotics. After searching
the truck, deputies found a
clear plastic Baggie contain-
ing cannabis next to the driv-
er in the crease of the bench
seat. They also found some
cannabis wrapped up in a
piece of notebook paper in
the driver's door panel.
There also was a piece of
rock cocaine in the cup holder
in the dashboard.
He was arrested and
charged with possession of
both cocaine and cannabis.
Bail was set at $1,500.

next several days, despite her
calling him several times to
start the job. She called again
on Nov. 3, 2004, because her
roof was leaking in heavy
rain. He arrived and used a
tarp from her garage to stop
the roof from leaking.
After then, she wasn't able
to get him to return and work
on her roof. She continued to
call him until reading a news-
paper report that he was not a
licensed contractor and there
were charges against him.
The whole incident took
place during the-state of
emergency declared by
Governor Jeb Bush during the
heavy 2004 hurricane season.
On Thursday, April 13,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies charged Vanscooter
with contracting without a
license during a state of emer-
gency and grand theft. Bail
was set at $2,000.

battery
SEBRING At 5:09 a.m.
Wednesday, April 13, police
arrived at Highlands Village
Assisted Living Facility on
U.S. 27 to investigate one res-
ident attacking another with a
rock wrapped up in a sock.
According to a witness,
Robert Bobby Lastinger, 75,.
of Sebring, approached a 65-
year-old man demanding he
return his radio. When the
man said he didn't have the
radio, Lastinger became more
aggressive.
The man tried to get away
from Lastinger, reports said,
but she allegedly continued to
approach him and attacked
him with the weapon, leaving
a Y-shaped cut in his fore-
head.
An employee attempted to
restrain Lastinger, so he
,allegedly turned on her and
hit her with the weapon.
That's when the 65-year-old
man tried to restrain
Lastinger.
Sebring police charged
Lastinger with aggravated
battery, with no bail set.

SEBRING At 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 10, a man went

and saw three men speaking
to a woman in a vulgar man-
ner.
He approached one of the
men, asking what was wrong,
and put his hand on his shoul-
der because he knew him.
The man pushed his hand off
his shoulder and began to hit
him in the face with a closed

Yacht club members



throw fete for Arc


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Members
of the Florida's Lake Country
Yacht Club will be mooring up
at Lake June Park Saturday
morning and will be giving
some area residents "joy rides."
They're not for everybody
though, it's the annual outing
for members of the Ridge Area
Arc.
"We do this every year, take
them on boat rides and throw a
picnic for them," said
Commodore Joe Oros of the
yacht club.
He sails an 18-foot Sun Ray
bowrider and will be one of at
least four members who will
captain his vessel around Lake
June throughout the day.
"There'll be a pontoon boat.
and several other power boats,"
Oros said. "I try and let each
one have a turn driving the boat
for a while."
Other members scheduled to-
bring out their watercraft for the
day are Ed Ellig, Charlie Beyer
and Walter Blackwell.
The group comes in during
the morning, then after the boat
rides around the lake, members
have a cookout.
This will be the fifth year for
the event and it's one to which


Arc clients look forward.
Gloria Holder of Arc has
overseen many of the outings.
She said although some of the
participants love the water,
there are others who aren't so
sure. Some, she said, loose their
trepidation once they're at the
lake.
"We had one girl who wasn't
going to go but she changed her
mind at the last minute," Holder
said. "She had a good time."
Usually there are about 50
Arc residents who come out for
the annual excursion and pic-
nic.
The event was the brainchild
of Sandy Matthews who had a
similar outing with another club
she belonged to.
"Our boat club in New York
used to do it for the nuns from
the area," she said. "So when I
came down here I said, let's
look for another worthy group
who'd enjoy it."
The Arc residents also love
the picnic and there's even
some dancing.
"We have a boom box and
we play music and they do
some dancing," she said.
The yacht club members pro-
vide the food and the manpow-
er to put on the picnic.
"Wauchula Bank gives us the


grill to use and Skip Keeton is
our chef, our grillmaster," she
said.
It's one of the many activities
the club has throughout the
year. Last month they had a
fund-raising fashion show, but
there are other events such as a
progressive dinner cruise, boat-
ing safety courses, a fishing
derby and the Commodore's
Ball.

"Last weekend we had a one
day trip and went through 14
lakes up in Winter Haven,"
Oros said.
They plan another outing on
May 13-15 when they will trav-
el to Fort Myers and cruise the
Intracoastal Waterway.

"We're going to go see the
Edison and Ford estates and
such," he said.
Oros said there are currently
more than 60 members of the
organization with boats of all
shapes and sizes.
"We have people with jet
skis, pontoon boats but you
don't even have to own a boat
to be a member," he said.
Those wising additional
information about Florida's
Lake Country Yacht Club can
call Oros at 471-6649.

there are just tables full of

left the windows nice and clear
so you'll be able to see the
beautiful views."
In addition to public school

well.

VFW to honor Viet Nam veterans


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's the 30th
anniversary of the end of the
war in Viet Nam.
Last week, Sebring Mayor
George Hensley signed a
proclamation to that effect.
Saturday, April 30, members of
VFW Post Sebring Memorial,
4300 will host a "recognize
Vietnam Veterans" event.
The observance is slated to
be held at VFW Memorial
4300's post home beginning at
11a.m.
"We're going to have a 21-
gun salute and Joseph Dionne
from our Highlands County
Veterans Service Office will be
the keynote speaker," said
Sandra Kicklighter, president of
Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post
4300, who organized the event.
Dionne is a sergeant major
with the United States Army
and ~a Viet Nam eraveteran.
- Although he served in


Southeast Asia, Dionne did not
actually serve in country during
the conflict. He said over the
course of his 30-plus years of
service, Dionne has served in
Panama, Grenada, the Gulf War
and Korea among other places.
Following the April 30 cere-
monies, there will be a free
luncheon served at the post at
2011 SE Lakeview Drive.
Bud Tullis is in charge of the
honor guard at the event.
. "We're going to have a 21-
gun salute in respect for our
fallen comrades that died in
Viet Nam," he said.
Tnllis also will he in ''-irge
of the luncheon. ih iuncii will
be served at no charge.
"It's all provided by VFW
Post 4300," he said.
The entree, chicken, is
scheduled to be donated by
Albertsons Food & Drug with
each of the VFW members
bringing in a covered dish....'


"We do not request any of
our Viet Nam veterans or guests
to bring in a covered dish," he
said. "That's handled by the
men's auxiliary, the ladies aux-
iliary and our members."
The Sebring event will be
one of hundreds that will be
held around that date by VFW,
Ladies' Auxiliary and Men's
Auxiliary members nationwide
and overseas as part of VFW's
Vietnam Veterans Recognition
week, May 1 7, this year.
"This is the first time it will
be done in conjunction with
Loyalty day," said Kicklighter.
"This is an excellent oppor-
tunity for the VFW to let our
community know that our
Vietnam veterans, continue to
serve our country and will con-
tinue to make the VFW the
nation's leading veterans organ-
ization." VFW Post 4300
Commander Charles DeVault
said.

Motorcyclists headed out EARTH
.. Continued from 1A


OR fad-find ing miss son


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's still six
months away but members of
the Heartland Riders
Association are getting ready
for their second annual Run to
the Heartland. The next step
will be this weekend when they
head north on a fact finding
mission. .
The group of emissaries from
the HRA plan to travel to
Leesburg for their ninth annual
Bikefest. It is that event on
which the Sebring gathering is
based.
Hundreds of motorcycle
enthusiasts turned out last
October for the inaugural event
in Sebring. Thousands show up
in Lake County.
Estimates put the 2004
Leesburg event at better than
75,000 participants who filled
local motels and hotels in the
area. Restaurants and local


businesses also benefitted from
the event.
The 2004 rally in Sebring
was muted to a degree, owing
to the still-fresh damage from
the trio of hurricanes that had
pounded the area over a six
week period. That, coupled
with the fact it was the HRA's
first year, brought attendance
somewhat short of the antici-
pated 5,000-10,000 cycles and
participants.
HRA President Lane
Bradford said there will be a
new company handling the ven-
dors this year. He is also trying
to make certain that the music
would be a bit different this
year, with fare that would
appeal to a wider group of peo-
ple.
The Heartland Riders
Association began in June 2003
with the expressed purpose of
creating a Highlands County
motorcycle gathering.


Those who want to get an up
close and personal view of the
park will have an opportunity
to take either a tram ride or a
hay ride through different
areas.
"The tram will run up around
the loop, while the hay ride will
go into the pine flatwoods off
of Tiger Branch which is
near the off road bicycle track,"
she said.
Harris said that there were
2,200 people in a six-hour peri-
od during last year's event and
she anticipated there would be
more this year.
The Earth Day celebration
will officially run from 8 a.m.
until 2 p.m. but there will be
free admission to the park all
day Saturday.
Those wishing more infor-
mation about the Earth Day
celebration may call Highlands
Hammock State Park at 386-
6094 or visit the Web site
www.floridastateparks. org.


BENTON
Continued from 1A
Drug Awarehess and Resistance
Education, multi-agency task
force, victim's advocate pro-
gram, Serious Habitual
Offender Comprehensive
Action Program, and the juve-
nile curfew directed patrol pro-
gram to prevent youth on pro-
batfion from getting ipto more
crime. .
"I should have known when
my secretary said Nancy
Thomas (event organizer) need-
ed a list of all the things I've
done for the last 20 years,"
Benton said.
She is most pleased that
when cooperation is needed in
Highlands County, agencies
come together in many ways.
"If we can work on mental
health and get a Baker Act cen-
ter, we'll be happy," she added.
Attorney Janette Branham
received the Judge Clifton M.
Kelly Award for "going above
and beyond the call of duty and
the scope of the job with regard
to children in the judicial sys-
tem." She has spent much time


working with the
"Consequences of Crime" pro-
gram and as an advisor to teen
court.
Branham said Kelly, even if
sick, would always want to
know how the Consequences of
Crime program was going.
"He was thrilled that we
would continue his program,"
she said.
The awards
were given at
S the annual Law
Day luncheon
at the Sebring
Civic Center.
This year's
BENTON luncheon was
in honor of
Circuit Judge Jesse Clayr
Barber, who served in the 10th
judicial circuit. When Circuit
Judge Olin Shinholser first took
the bench 15 years ago, he had
several cases left over from his
prosecutor docket. Barber came
down from Bartow to trade
places with Shinholser so he
wouldn't preside over the cases
he had prepared to argue.
Barber, born Aug. 13, 1923,
in Kentucky, died June 12,
2004, in Lake Wales. All three


HURRICANES
Continued from 1A
a half page list of concerns for
various county departments,
outside agencies, commercial
businesses and private citizens
to address.
He wants their responses
back in his hands in two weeks
to make sure everyone is on the
same page. Then he will incor-
porate their plans into the coun-
ty's comprehensive emergency
management plan.
Why not sooner?
When asked why he waited
until mid-April, less than two
months before the beginning of
the hurricane season, to talk
about the list of concerns,
Nichols said he didn't wait.


The list was actually com-
piled right after the storms
when local agencies and county
departments were asked for
feedback.
"A lot of it was addressed
right after the hurricanes in
time for the next (one)," he
said.
Nichols also said the county,
like everyone else, has been
dealing with internal recovery,
infrastructure repairs and reim-
bursements from the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency.. He would have pre-
ferred a full year to revamp the
county's responses,"but that
time has been condensed to the
bare minimum because of
recovery.
"We're still helping people,"
Nichols said.


RECORDS
Continued from 1A
Executive Decision Group."
Colby has a g(kd for the
- notices of the meeting, minutes
associated with the sessions,
notes, sign-in sheets and deci-
sions made during the meet-
ings.
The complaint alleges Colby
had asked both Nichols' assis-
tant Julie Tubbs and Hopton for
the opportunity to review the
records but later was informed
via a fax that he first would
have (o pay to see the docu-
ments
"Please be advised that all
storm information -is contained
in several file boxes, and your
records request requires consid-
erable...' research," wrote
Highlands County Assistant
County Administrator Tom
Portz in his missive. "The board
has adopted a policy for
research that requires the
requestor put down a deposit
before the research is conduct-
ed."
Portz estimated the request
would take approximately four
hours of staff time at a cost of
$16.28 per hour.
However, Colby said he
could find no precedent for that.
Instead, he found just the oppo-
site.
"The supreme court said that
a public officer that demands a
sum of money not due, in


excess of what is due or before
it's due commits the crime of
extortion," he said.
Colby maintained that
whether or not the group was a
sunshine committee was irrele-
vant.
"Bill Nichols has said they
kept records and if they keep
records, even if they're not a
group that has to give public
notice whatever records they
have are public records," he
said.
Colby talked about the situa-
tion with Attorney for the
Board of County
Commissioners Ross MacBeth
on Wednesday.
He waited until Thursday
afternoon to gi\e the county the
four hturs it had charged him to
get the records.
Colby said county' officials
had distributed information
about the Hurricane. Executive
Decision Group.
"They gave us a detailed
description about this group,
what they do and who is on it,"
Colby said.
During Wednesday's meet-
ing of the Highlands County
Emergency Office of
Communications Hurricane
Preparedness group, Colby
talked with Nichols about giv-
ing notice about ihe meetings
and was told they had kept
notes of the sessions
Reportedly, at press time,
MacBeth had not accepted
service of the action.

Art students spruce up apes' quarters


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
WAUCHULA The Wauchula
Center for Great Apes has gotten new
interior decoration thanks to Highlands
County resident Mara Yeates-Trumbo
and her students.
Trumbo is a certified instructor for
the one-stroke painting method. She
and a team of art students put their
knowledge to work in the Baby Apes
wing of the sanctuary.
Donna Dewberry, the creator of the
one-stroke painting technique, was on
hand to cut the ribbon on April 16.
"They decorated one of the night
houses we have here," said Patti
Ragan, the director of the center.
The center recently received several
apes that have been retired from televi-
sion work. Houses are in the process of
being constructed for them.
"We've taken in some orangutans
and some chimpanzees," Ragan said.
"They painted some jungle scenes and
so forth. They're quite lovely really. It
helps enhance the environment for the
apes living at the sanctuary."
Described by Ragan as calming and
comfortable, the scene is an assembly
of banana trees, palm trees and flowers.
"The apes know what they're looking
at. They visualize the pictures," she
said.
The night house, a single room facili-

ents the painting that was awarded
through a silent auction.
ty for smaller apes, was painted by the
women. The artists plan to come back
to decorate two more night houses that
are under construction.
"The houses are built next to the out-
door habitat and are extremely strong.
They're designed to give them shelter
during the storms and they're heated in
cold weather," she said.
New residents include an orangutan
who most recently was a recurring
character in the NBC daytime drama
"Passions."
"He's retired, and he's here now,"
said Ragan, who is adamantly opposed
to the use of apes as television actors.
"They're only used when they're
babies, and we would really like to edu-
cate the public to understand that in
order to use them on television and in
entertainment they are pulled from their
mothers when they are infants. They
should still be with their mothers for
the next five years."
The Center for Great Apes is located
in Hardee County and is not open to the
public. Ragan said her mission was to
try to keep these primates out of road-
side zoos or biomedical labs and
instead provide them with sanctuary
care.
It operates through donations and-
volunteer efforts.

Discovery Camp

beats, summer

boredom
SEBRING Have some fun
this summer in the Children's
Museum of the Highlands new

The Children's Museum
offers a wonderful way to fight
summer boredom, have hands
on fun and maybe even -
learn. Discovery Camp is a fan-
tastic way to pass the summer
days with a variety of arts and
crafts, games, puzzles all cen-
tered around one weekly theme.
The daily visit to the Children's
Museum to play with all of the
wonderful exhibits is just an
added bonus. Each camp is
taught by a Highlands County
teacher and is open to children
who have finished kindergarten
up through children who have
finished fifth grade.
The camp runs from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m., each day for a full week.
Early drop off and late pick up
will be available for an extra
fee. This is the seventh year of
camp and the first year in its
very own camp building.
Access to the camp classroom
will be from the alley behind
the museum. There will be a
worker there to direct families.
Sessions to be offered this


summer include the following:

teacher Liz Sisson Do you
wait to go where the "wild
things" are? Join this week for

Area fire


marshals


work on


Habitat


roofs
By DESIREE WINDHAM
Special to the News-Sun
What do fire marshals do on
their leisure days?
Usually when someone takes
vacation time off work they
spend leisure time with family
and friends, travel or utilize
that time to benefit themselves
in some fashion. On April 13,
six individuals from the Bartow
and Tampa field office of State
Fire Marshals Bureau of Fire
and Arsons Investigation and
four fire marshals from the
Avon Park Fire Department uti-
lized their vacation days as a
labor of goodwill.
Eric Saccasyn who works in
the Tampa field office was
eager to take the long commute
to help families in need and be
a participant with his comrades.
"This gives us a chance to
work with the guys," Saccasyn
stated.
Lieutenant Brandon Ball
from the Bartow field office
helped to organize his fellow
firefighters work day and pro-
vide support and details regard-
ing the build schedule. Thus,
these dedicated fire marshals
completed two roofs on Habitat
homes located on Memorial
Drive in Sebring.
Accompanying the Bartow
field office was office manager
Lucy Milligan who added to
the team spirit by stating, "The
idea we're helping someone
else is why we are all here. It's
amazing what can be done as a
team. We call ourselves 'Team
Bartow.'"
Those involved are
Lieutenant Brandon Ball,
Bartow field office; James
Pirson, Bartow field office;
Kevin Shireman, Bartow field
- office; Fred Clarke, Bartow
field office; Lucy Mulligan,
Bartow field office; and Eric
Saccasyn, Tampa field office.
The firefighters in Avon Park
who helped are Captain James
Loughan; Robert Remick, fire-
fighter/emergency medical
technician; a; and Craig Robert
Marans, firefighter/EMT.

What do you think about a
new Wal-Mart coming to
Avon Park?

I, personally, am not in favor.
They have already affected pre-
vious businesses here and cer-
tainly no new ones would


spring up with as much compe-
tition. I tend to side with the
"little man" who is trying to
make a living and I personally
think Wal-Mart has ruined a
number of "small businesses."

Don't use pulpit

for any politics
Editor:
According to legend, Rip
Van Winkle slept 20 years.
Could this possibly be the case
with "Separation of Church and
State?" Has meaning and pur-
pose of "Separation of Church
and State" been abolished in
America?
Case in point: A Sunday
morning worship service being
televised out of Columbus,
Ohio.
The pastor/preacher in the
meeting was delivering the ser-
mon with all the vim and vigor
he could muster. Sad to say he
presented only one scripture
verse as biblical reference. The
remainder of the one hour ser-
mon was what I considered a
vicious attack on our govern-
ment.
The more I heard, the more I
resented his sermon. In greater
part, he harshly criticized sev-
eral past presidents. He focused
primarily on the government's
failure in the area of poverty
and Social Security. As he
sweat- and yelled,, his. efforts
seemed to be as short lived as a
vapor.
Considering the lack of sup-
portive enthusiasm on the part
of the congregation it was
almost obvious they did not
approve of what was happen-
ing. In a church where the norm
is usually an immediate emo-
tional response of approval, the
response in this meeting was
more like a funeral service.
What the reader has read
thus far is merely a prelude to
the. case at point. What would
ordinarily have been a sermon
focusing strictly on the scrip-
tures was really political innu-
endo. In fact, it was an inten-
tional message of advocating
support of certain political fig-
ures.
The pastor/preacher was
using the entire message as a
means of promotion.. He was
taking on the appearance of a
political advocate rather than
the pastor of a church. He was
pleading with the congregation
to join him in a plan to change
the total structure of our gov-
ernment.
His first appeal was for the
contribution of $40 to support
the cause. Before the meeting
ended he appealed to his listen-
ers to buy his book "Silent No
More".
I have not read the book but
I will assume that it was in sup-
port of all he presented in the
sermon of April 17. In a final
commercial video byte was the
appeal to any and all viewers to
put all their support behind the
present administration.
Need I write any more. I feel
I have presented my case.
In closing I might add, the
pulpits in our churches were
intended solely for the purpose
of presenting the Bible. In no
way were they intended for
political innuendoes or advoca-
cy. Any and all pastors should
know that the tax exempt status
granted to religious establish-
ments is at risk when the pulpit
is used for promoting politics
rather than conveying the bibli-


cal teachings. They are treading
on thin ice.
Some of the darkest days of
humanity existed when church
and state were bed fellows in
government. We are in an era
when the "Separation of
Church and State" is facing a
challenge. May those in author-
ity awaken to the alarm.
Bill Williams

America under

siege at home

Editor:
America's greatest danger:
the United States Congress.
We have a congress com-
posed of two parties, both who
are promoting "open borders,"
the invasion of our nation by
foreign powers.
How can we as citizens stand
by silently and let this happen?
We cannot wait until the next
election to purge "our" con-
gress of those who promote
criminals in our midst.
The people must demand
that those who aid and abet
those illegals entering our
Country resign or step down
from their positions.
We are a nation of laws that
are not being enforced.
The lack of enforcement can
only lead to a complete col-
lapse of our system. The sellout
of the "American worker," by
Congress to the corporations
and to other world govern-
ments cannot stand. Great
social unrest as happened in the
Soviet Union, which caused its
collapse, will most certainly
happen in the United States if
left unchecked.
Those in high political office
who are taking payoffs from
those industries that gain huge
government contracts at the
expense of the American work-
er, causing lower wages, less
health care and could cause
a financial collapse.
The move to make those ille-
gals, "legal voters" at the
expense of the American work-
ing class is a very serious and
dangerous situation. If
Congress gets its way, all of our
infrastructure is in danger. The
health of our nation is at-risk
for the many diseases, leprosy,
tuberculosis to name a couple,
are being brought into the
country; our financial institu-
tions, every system we have
will be at the breaking point.
The invasion by so many
millions of people will affect
the lives of all Americans, both
in health, in finances and yes in
their very security. How could
the American people have lost
control of the government?
Every senator and congress-
man or public official who pro-
motes this invasion of these
foreign illegal criminals are
just as guilty as the illegal
criminals who are invading the
United States.
The Americans who stand by
silent and mute are also just as
guilty of the crime of invasion.
Every corporation, organiza-
tion, individual, labor union
who gives aid and comfort to
illegals are committing a crime
against the American people.
These people are not immi-


grants in any sense of the word,
these people are criminals who
are invading our nation.
May God be with us in this
fight for survival as a nation.
Gerald Rudolph Ford In
an attempt to restore the confi-
dence of America following the
crushing blows of Watergate,
Ford spoke these words after
taking the oath of office on
Aug. 9, 1974 "...our long
national nightmare is over. Our
Constitution works. Our great
republic is a government of
laws and not of men. Here the
people rule ... As we bind up
the internal wounds of
Watergate, more painful and
more poisonous than those of
foreign wars, let us restore the
Golden Rule to our political
process and let brotherly love
purge our hearts of suspicion
and hate. "Our long national
nightmare is not over".
Cleveland's first inaugural
address on March 4, 1885,
called for close scrutiny of gov-
ernment officials. "Your every
voter, as sure as your chief
magistrate, under the same high
sanction, though in a different
sphere, exercises a public trust
....Eyery. citizen owes to .th*e
country a vigilant watch and
close scr-utiny of its public ser-
vants and a fair and reasonable
estimate of their fidelity and
usefulness. Thus is the people's
will impressed upon the whole
framework of our civil polity."
Billie E. Jewett

This world is

simply wicked
Editor:
First, let me say this; today,
April 17, God has blessed me
with 85 years of life, good
health for my years and the
desire to reach out and touch
the lives of others in a good and
positive way.
He has blessed me with
strength in character to defend
and fight for what I believe is
fair and just for all.
My faith in Jesus Christ has
sustained me in the days of sor-
row, losses, yes and in the days
of unspoken injustices. I know
what it is to hurt and that per-
haps is the reason for an inner
drive to want to take care of
and protect others.
We are living in a world of
wickedness, persecution of
women and children, the weak
and frail, anyone who cannot
fight off their tormentors. Filth
and violence has become the
entertainment of choice. Babies
and small children receive their
first exposure to education on
the boob-tube school of "Shoot
'em dead Jackson." When they
get to middle school and high
school, they already excel in
the art of violence.
Computers expose children
to chat rooms, temptations to
connect with the mob,
pedophiles and murderers.
Computers provide easy
access to drugs and rip offs.
And guess what? Our enemies
benefit from our weaknesses,
faults and frailties. Our ene-
mies know us better than we
know ourselves!

A cowboy's

look at life
After reading last week's
column about life in the '50s
through '80s and my thoughts
on how my children's lives
would be different had they
grown up in the country like I
did, someone else in the com-
munity must have also been
thinking of a more relaxed way
of life.

most likely originated with an
anonymous source, as does
most stuff from the Internet.
It's suggestions are to the point
and often comical.
Here are those tips for a
more relaxed way of life.
Your fences need to be
horse high, pig tight and bull
strong.
Life ain't about how fast
you run, or how high you
climb, but how well you
bounce.
Keep skunks and bankers
and lawyers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you
plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is consider-
ably faster than a John Deere
tractor.
Words that soak into your
ears are whispered ... not
yelled.
Meanness don't jest hap-
pen overnight.
S Forgive your enemies. It
messes up their heads.
Do not comer something
that you know is" meaner than
you.
It don't take a very big
- person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel
word.
Every path has a few pud-
dles.
When you wallow with
pigs, expect to get dirty. ,
The best sermons are
lived, not preached.
Most of the stuff people
worry about ain't never gonna
happen anyway
Don't judge folks by their
relatives.
Remember that silence is
sometimes the best answer.
Live a good, honorable
life. Then when you get older
and think back, you'll enjoy it a
second time.
Don't interfere with some-
thin' that ain't botherin' you
none.
Timing has a lot to do with
the outcome of a rain dance.
The easiest way to eat
crow is while it's still warm,
,'cause the colder it gets, the
harder it is to swaller.
If'you find yourself in a
hole, the first thing to do is stop
diggin'.
It don't take a genius to
spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
Sometimes you get, and
sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker
you'll probably ever have to
deal with watches you shave
his face in the mirror every
momin'.
If you get to thinking'
you're a person of some influ-
ence, try orderin' somebody
else's dog around.
Always drink upstream
from the herd.
Good judgment comes
from experience, and a lotta
that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin' the cat outta the
bag is a whole lot easier than
putting' it back in.

The end of school is drawing
near. High schools have had
their proms, not they are get-
ting ready for Grad Nite..
The only thing I have to deal
with right now is helping my
daughter figure out what class-
es to take next year in high
school.

LETTERS
Continued from 18A
We are putting out way, way
too much information and
soaking up the kind of knowl-
edge and temptations that will
send us trucking down the road
of disaster to destruction.
Again, I need to say this to
you because it cannot be said
too often; we are fast approach-
ing the day of Christ's return.
People who are of the world
will snicker at my words and
shrug it off. That's to be expect-
ed and that is their choice.
Those who are in tune with
God's Word and will, quite
likely will pause and check
their "spiritual homestead".
The death and destruction
going on in Iraq (Babylon) will
not become the shining star of
democracy George Bush would
have us believe, nor will it
make him a "famous war presi-
dent".
I remind you of the accuracy
of the prophet Isaiah, more
accurate than the media of
today's according to the King
James version of the Holy
Bible, chapter 13, verse 6.
"Howl ye, for the day of the
Lord is at hand. It shall come as
destruction from the
Almighty." Vs. 13, God goes
on to say "Therefore I will
shake the heavens, and the
earth shall remove out of her
place in the wrath of the Lord
of hosts," (the people that are
there from other countries).
"And in the day of his fierce
anger. And it shall be as the
chased roe and as sheep that no
man taketh up."
Vs. 15: "Everyone that is
found shall be thrust through
and everyone that is joined
unto them (coalition) shall fall
by the sword."
Vs. 19: And Babylon (Iraq)
the glory of the kingdoms, the


beauty of the Chaldees' (Iraqis)
excellence shall be as when
God overthrew. Sodom and
Gomorrah."
Vs. 20: "It shall never be
inhabited. Neither shall it be
dwelt in from generation to
generation. Neither shall the
Arabian pitch tent there.
Neither shall the shepherd
make their fold there."
"Does this mean nuclear?"
Now let's talk about this new
pope that is being elected.
According to my under-
standing, this new pope will
profit from the popularity of
John Paul II in putting forth his
own agenda. As I understand it,
his reign will not be a long one.
The pope that comes after
him will be a.Roman Jew.
The Israelites will respect
him because he is a Jew. He
will win approval, but that
approval will not last long.
Then comes wickedness such
as the world has never seen.
Because of God's mercy and
compassion, he will shorten the
days, otherwise his elect
(believers) would not be able to
stand it. After that the Lord will
come in all his glory! What a
wonderful day that will be!
I appeal to everyone to not
only "write your living will"
with your chosen health care
surrogates, but while you are at
it, take a look at your spiritual
house.
Believe me, folks, time is
running out!

Center wants to

build memorial

Editor:
"The Forgotten War"
103,284 wounded, 54,264
never came home and a total of
six million served in this area...
that 1,000 are dying every day


... The Korean War.
Korean War Veterans
National Museum & Library
National Communications
Centers, P.O. Box 96307,
Washington D. C. 20090-6307
is asking for help in building a
memorial to the Korean War
veterans. Your donation is tax
deductible contribution.
They are in the groundbreak-
ing phase hoping for Aug. 27
and any Floridian who wishes
a copy of official registration
and financial information
maybe obtained from the
Division of Consumer Services
by calling toll free within the
state, 1-800-435-7352
It was sad to hear that after
all these years Congress fails to
honor those who served our
country in the Korean War, and
it does not contribute to see the
memory of these service men
and women for future genera-
tions to know of their giving up
their time and life helping to
keep the world free.
Let's hope we see the names
of our Florida elected officials
in Washington D.C. contribut-
ing to this great effort. And it
certainly would be nice to see

every elected official in
Tallahassee also contributing to
this great cause.

Taking a look at

the 'long haul'
Editor:
Lately the head lobbyist-in-
chief has been parading across
our country spending untold
millions of taxpayer dollars in
the process all aglow with his
plan to hand over a large por-
tion of our Social Security
money to the bankers and
financial institutions in return
for their august management


expertise. His favorite expres-
sion-of-the-moment is "in it
for the long haul." Let's humor
him and look at the "long
haul."
The depression of 1819 -
largely a result of easy credit
extended by bankers to land
speculators. Hundreds of state
banks closed.
The depression of 1837 -
most economists agreed was'
again a result of too much cred-
it extended by bankers to spec-
ulators in land, canals and rail-
roads. More than 600 banks
failed.
The depression of 1873 set
off by "unsound investment
schemes" and speculation in
railroad construction. Several
major banks failed. The New
York Stock Exchange closed
for 10 days when the prices of
securities collapsed. This
depression lasted until 1879.
The great depression of
1929 1920's prosperity was
built on easy credit. Millions of
Americans lost their life sav-
ings. Across the country small
investors were wiped out.
Many brokerage firms col-
lapsed and many banks failed.
The republican Hoover admin-
istration established the
Reconstruction Finance
Corporation on Jan 22, 1932, to
provide loans to business, but
Hoover opposed giving money
to the poor and unemployed.
F.D. Roosevelt was inaugu-
rated on March 4, 1933, pro-
claiming "our greatest task is to
put people to work." He further
stated "there must be strict
supervision of all banking and
credits and investments; there
must be an end to speculation
with other peoples money." On
March 6, 1833, every U.S.
bank was ordered closed. On
March 9, 1933, congress
passed new laws to protect
depositors and allow the banks
to reopen.


These are but some of the
depressions and recessions our
country has suffered through.
You might remember the reces-
sions of the early '50s, or the
early '70s, or the early '80s or
maybe the latest one in the
early 2000s.
Social Security was estab-
lished Aug 14, 1935.
Is this "long haul" enough?

Not happy with.

sales tax idea

Editor:
From April. 17 edition:
"Renfro discusses challenges
faced, by schools:
"SEBRING Among the
challenges facing the adminis-
trators, teachers, and support
personnel in Florida's public
schools are the mandates and
standards sent down to the
local level from the federal and
state governments.
"These mandates and stan-
dards have often been neces-
sary, created to address long
.term problems, but just as often
they can be difficult to imple-
ment, or have unintended con-
sequences.
"Additionally, all too often,
these mandates and standards
are expensive to put into place
or attain, and all too often no
money is allotted by the requir-
ing agency, so the local com-
munity has to bear the cost.
More."

Did you notice that adminis-
trators are listed first in the pri-
orities? When we went to
school the teachers were the
most important. Perhaps it's
time! that the school board re-
examines their priorities, cuts
down on the administration
people and returns to basics.


That would also eliminate the
need for additional taxes. I am
not happy or "OK" with the
new sales tax proposal.

Leadership Highlands tours local media


By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING Leadership
Highlands Class of 2005 toured
various aspects of the media
industry offered in Highlands
County Thursday.
The News-Sun was one of
those stops where members of
the class were able to see the
actual production of a newspa-
per, literally from the front door
where they were greeted, to the
back where a special section
featuring the graduates was
printed and pulled off the press
for them to take home.
There are 21 members finish-
ing this year's class. According
to Leadership Highlands
Executive Committee
Chairman Gregg Stupinski, the
group can only enroll 25 people
in the class and if a member
misses more than two classes
they can't graduate. Ever since
Leadership Highlands was
introduced in Highlands County
in 2000, there are more than
enough applications for the
class and some have to get
turned away. He did add that the
selection committee tries to
make sure and choose leaders
from all three cities to get a
good cross-section of the coun-
ty.
The class starts with an
overnight retreat in September
and meets every month for one
full day. In addition to media,
the group learns about govern-
ment, law enforcement and the
county, agriculture, social serv-
ices, arts and tourism and devel-
opment.
Stupinski, a 2001 graduate,
said the purpose of Leadership
Highlands is to "cultivate the
current and future leaders in the
community."
The class was very beneficial
to Stupinski whose career most-
ly focused on the financial
industry. He is the resident
manager and financial planner
at Smith Barney in Sebring.
"The first thing I learned was
more about the community and
the county as a whole. I learned
about all the different aspects of
agriculture and even govern-
ment," he said. "I got good con-

tacts in the business and kept in
touch with a large majority of
them."
Leadership Highlands, a pro-
gram sponsored by all three
chambers, provides advanced
leadership training to existing
and emerging community lead-
ers, said Sebring Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
Dan Andrews. He joins Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director David
Greenslade and Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Eileen May
as members who sit on the
Leadership Highlands board of
directors. Jeannie Snively
serves as the administrator of
Leadership Highlands. John
Barben is vice chairman of the
executive committee.
A steering committee, con-
sisting of two graduating mem-
bers of each class, evaluate the
previous program and make
recommendations for changes
to the executive committee,
explained Andrews.
The last class will be May 19,
but the graduation ceremony
will take place May 21.
Stupinski said this year's class
chose to move the graduation
ceremony to a Saturday so
many of their families could
attend.

5 Years Ago
April 21, 2000: Behind nine
innings on the mound and a
2-for-5 performance at the
plate for Chris Waters,
SFCC rallied from a 6-2
deficit to beat Polk 8-6 in
the season finale. The
Panthers ended their first
season since 1992 with a
24-30 record.

25 Years Ago
April 22, 1980: Jerry Jones
tripled and doubled as one
of five Red Devils to have
multi-hit games as Avon
Park 'crushed DeSoto 15-1.
Jim Marcum went five
innings to earn the win,
which was his team's third
over the Bulldogs that year.

NORTH PORT Andrew Altvater has
already been to the prom. He'll gladly skip it this
year to go to state.
The Lake Placid High School senior was one
of two Highlands County athletes to qualify for
the Class 2A FHSAA Finals in two events in
Thursday's Region 3-2A meet at North Port High
School, placing third in the 1,600 meters and
fourth in the 800 to earn his first trip to state.
Avon Park sophomore Alexandria Ware made
it to state in both the hurdling events, finishing
third in the 100-meter high hurdles and the 300
intermediate hurdles to make it to state, which is
in Coral Springs April 30.
"I was so happy to finally get my dream to go
to state," Altvater said. "I've been working for
this for four years."
Altvater had a time of 4 minutes, 33.07 sec-
onds in the 1,600 trimming almost eight sec-
onds off his district meet time and then had to
turn it on late in the 800 to break away from the
pack entering the home stretch.
"I thought, 'I've got to sprint' because they
were flying," Altvater said of his kick, which net-
ted a 2:00.96 finish. "The competition definitely


helped push my times down."
"When we saw him kick and get out of the
pack, we knew he had it with 200 meters to go,"
Allen Altvater, Andrew's father, said.
Lake Placid head coach Sharla Elliott said
Altvater has been focused on making state all
season.
"This is his senior year and he knows it's his
chance," she said. "Our distance coach, Scott
Morgan, has been a big help, but Andrew is very
self-motivated."
Ware turned in personal bests in both of her
events, running the 100 in 16.28 seconds and the
300 in 50.28.
"Focusing was the key," Ware said. "Basically,
you have to compete with the best to get better
and you have to focus to get better."
Two other Red Devils also qualified. Junior
Nellie Rushing placed fourth .in the 400 meters
with a personal best of 1:01.07 to earn her second
trip to state and Rafael Johnson was fourth in the
high jump with a 6-foot effort.
"Coming around the goalposts in the final turn
I was fifth and I decided it was time to turn on the
switch," Rushing said. "I passed Lake Wales and

All four reached base on

Dusty Campbell also added

stepped it up here in the last

"A good feeling,"
Vazquez said about the
night.
"It's perfect. It's just how
I wanted it to end," added
Williams, who will join

SEBRING Defense is
usually the key to victory in
sports, and softball is no
exception.
Sebring played error-free
ball and scored the winning
run when visiting Hardee
committed its third error in the
bottom of the eighth alone,
allowing the Lady Streaks to
come away with a wild 6-5
extra-inning win on Thursday
night.
"That's the kind of game we
need going into districts,"
Sebring head coach Lee Tolar
said. "That'll give them some


character right there."

Haynes was able to come all

Maddox: TV

show would be

'great thing'
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID Whether
or not the ESPN cameras are
rolling, Shaw Maddox will still
be running the show.
The Lake Placid head foot-
ball coach reiterated that he
will remain in full control of
the football program if the
Green Dragons become the .
subject of a documentary series:--,,-
to be aired on ESPN this fall.'..
"There's all kinds of rumors -
out there," Maddox said. "I've
had people call me and tell me
how sorry they are I'm getting
replaced. I said, 'Well, me too,
because nobody bothered to tell
me.'"
Representatives from Actual
Reality Pictures, the production
company putting together the
series for ESPN, met with
Maddox and other Lake Placid
officials a couple of weeks ago,
and helped to clear misconcep-
tions about the project.
"I had some early concerns
when they first started talking
about NFL people coming in
and' trying to help coach, and
that kind of stuff, because those
folks haven't been here for the
20,000 jump-
ropes a day,"
Maddox said.
"These guys
have been
working their
tails off since
football was
over last year. MADDOX
They need to
be the ones to get the recogni-
tion for all the hard work they
put in in the offseason."
Yet if producers select Lake
Placid from a pool of 10 semi-
finalists nationwide, Maddox
will be on board.
"After we met with them and
talked to them, the way they
laid things out, and they were
talking, I think it would be a
great fhing for our school and
our community, 'especially for
our kids, because they'd always
have it to look back on," he
said.
The show, entitled "Bound
for Glory," is to follow a down-
trodden high school football
program as it attempts to build
a winner, and will bring in Pro
Football Hall-of-Famer Dick
Butkus, among others, to help
not only the football team but
the school as a whole.
"My understanding is they
provide some assistance in sev-
eral areas, and the one area that
would tie in really good is
some help with equipment or
infrastructure needs down
there," Highlands County
Superintendent of Schools
Wally Cox said.

Crooked Lake is where the big


bass are being taken these days


I am sure every bass fisher-
man in the state of Florida has
heard of Lake Walk-in-Water
in Frostproof and its reputation
for producing an abundance of
large bass; The fishing there
has been a little slow lately, but
some fellows are still catching
respectable-sized bass. The
fishing is good on the lake,
although the larger bass are not
actually jumping in the boat.
This 7,500-acre lake has
beds of hydrilla throughout,
making excellent habitat for
the big bass that are plentiful
there.
Probably not as many large'
bass are being caught now as
there were a few years ago, but
anglers still have a better
chance of taking a trophy from
Walk-in-Water than most other
lakes.
A catch of 10 or more bass
in the 3- to 6-pound range is
not unusual. Top-water lures,

spinnerbaits and jerkbaits
along with live wild shiners are
taking the better fish. The size
of bass being taken is good,
but the numbers are a little
less.
There is another lake in
close proximity that is actually
hotter right now for big bass
action. Crooked Lake, south of
Lake Wales, seems to be the
place to catch a trophy bass

suddenly the finish line was right in front of me.
My goal at state is to bust a 59 (seconds)."
Avon Park girls coach Germaine Wilson was
proud of his two qualifiers.
"We knew we had to come to this meet and do
better than we did last year," he said. "All week,
we just stressed top four and the girls just stayed
very focused in practice."
Jorge Gonzalez of Avon Park just missed a trip
to state in the pole vault, coming up one inch
short in a tiebreaker, and the Devils' 4x100 relay


these days. Access to the lake
is on State Road 17, according
to my informants.
In the past few weeks, there
have been some really large
bass taken from Crooked Lake.
Several weighed over 15
pounds and one reportedly
topped 18 pounds.
If you are craving to catch a
monster bass, now is the time
and Crooked Lake is the place.
The larger bass are being taken
on live wild shiners.
For live shiners, stop in and
see Ron at the Fisherman's
Candy Store east of U.S. 27 on
State Road 60, across from
Wal-Mart. Just remember that
they are closed on Sundays.
If you get a chance to go, I
hope you get a wall-hanger,

ate a picture for this column.

team was also fifth.
"I was pleased with our boys overall," Avon
Park coach Chet Brojek said. "We just have one
going to state, but we had a couple of fifth-place
finished and a sixth place.
"This is like our state meet used to be when we
were in a smaller classification. It is tough to get
to state from this regional. We won nine meets in
a row this year, including district. I would have
liked to have seen three seniors Jorge
Gonzales, Michael Taylor and Joe Watt go to
state because they worked hard this season."

Dixie days


Albom's punishment doesn't fit his crime


7s- -..


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Caleb Hawkey (left) makes a leaping catch in center field for R.J. Gators in a Dixie Youth Majors
(ages 11-12) game and Zachary Stoll hits a ground ball for Avon Park Moose Lodge in a Dixie Boys

locker room, exercise facilities, team uniforms
and more will be made over," but Cox said
specifics were not discussed when he met with
producers.
"That was not disclosed, and I'm not sure if the
producers even knew that answer, anyway," he
said.
Regardless, Cox has seen nothing but positives
in a project that "would be definitely a first time
for us in this area."
"If we are selected, there's a detailed contract
that the school board, myself and our school
board attorney would, have to approve, but noth-
ing in the interview or the visit came to mind of
any concern," he said.
One thing that's sure not to be signed over,
though, is Maddox's control.
"One of the things I told them was I was not
going to give up control of personnel decisions
and game-time decisions," he said. "I'm comfort-
able enough. I've won enough that I'm comfort-
able with what I'm doing and what we're trying


to do, and we're on track to get where we need to
be."
Maddox has indeed had plenty of success in
the past, having won two state titles, most recent-
ly at Taylor County in 1997, where he inherited
players who had gone winless at both the middle
school and junior varsity levels. Yet he isn't con-
cemed that the show would be a distraction, and
is instead pleased with the enthusiasm it's gener-
ating.
"It's got the kids talking about football right
here at the beginning of spring football, which is
good for us, and its got some excitement in the
school," he said. "There's already some excite-
ment because we know we're going to be much
better in football. We might not be great but
we're going to be a heck of a lot better."
Even if "Bound for Glory" decides not to come
to Lake Placid, the Green Dragons are still going
places, Maddox said.
"It would be a lot of fun to have those people
around, but we don't want to get so excited so
that if it doesn't happen, everybody thinks we're
going to go. in the toilet," he said. "That's not
going to happen."


In a way, I guess it's karmic
justice.
Detroit Free Press columnist
Mitch Albom became more
rich and famous than in his
wildest dreams when his book,
"Tuesdays with Morrie,"
became a rousing, cross-demo-
graphic success in the 1990s.
Though already prominent as a
sports columnist, Albom was
transformed into a world-
famous, A-list celebrity.
Now, with the same swift-
ness and passion with which he
was exalted, Albom is being
assailed seemingly without end
for a minor, routine error.
It has been over two weeks
since it was revealed Albom
presupposed, in writing, that
two former Michigan State
basketball players would be at
the Final Four when it turned
out they had a last-minute
change of plans. It has been
almost as long since he issued
an apology filled with harsh
rebuke of his own inattention
to detail, along with a promise
it won't happen again.
Yet for some reason, the
righteousness brigade won't
put this non-issue to bed.
The Free Press put Albom
on paid leave while it is inves-
tigating the matter, but one
hopes he's not receiving the
same upbraiding behind closed
doors that the fabricator of the
recent Bo Jackson story
appears to deserve.
Nor should Albom be sub-
jected to the scathing and
aghast commentary that's
spewing from outside his


TIME OUT

Chuck Myron


paper.
The Philadelphia Inquirer's
Don Steinberg went so far as
to write that Albom's peccadil-
lo was "as much a blow to the
credibility of sportswriting as
steroids have been to the credi-
bility of baseball."
Editor and Publisher dis-
patched a reporter at this
week's annual gathering of the
American Society of
Newspaper Editors to ask the
various journalistic gatekeepers
if the Free Press should dump
Albom. While only one editor
said he would fire him without
question, the prevailing tenor
seemed to be that Albom is
getting what he deserves.
Perhaps most symbolic was
an item in the USA Today, with
the dire question of a headline,
"Will Albom's woes taint jour-
nalism?" and an accompanying
caption that read "Mitch
Albom: Put fiction in the
newspaper."
In the file photo, Albom is
standing in front of a promo-
tional backdrop for the TV


movie version of his "Morrie"
follow-up, "The Five People
You Meet in Heaven," with his
typical sheepish grin, and you
half-expect him to speak up
and say "Wait a second! How
did I get in this mess?"
It's true this would never
have happened if Albom hadn't
made a mistake. Whenever
inaccuries make it into print, it
is regrettable, and sometimes
they can cause serious damage
to people and their reputations.
But, in this case, with the
sticking point surrounding the
simple question of whether two
men attended a basketball
game or not, there is nothing
approaching such gravitas.
Even Mateen Cleaves, one
of the players alleged to have
sat in the stands, has said he's
sorry Albom has come under
such fire.
While others believe that
Albom's indiscretion is a sign
that others are just as capri-
cious when it comes to the
important facts they gather,
those of us who know Albom's
work can safely make the
assumption that he would have
subjected his copy to more
scrutiny if there were truly
pressing issues at hand.
But there weren't.
Instead, Albom simply gave
a miniscule particular the the
tiny bit of time and attention it
warranted, and then moved on
with his life. I suggest the rest
of us do the same.

loss.

inning of the last game against
them and they got a few good,
lucky hits," Welborn said. "But

The Seahawks (31-14), who

against Palm Beach on
Thursday, put together a three-
hit, two-run inning against
SFCC starter Andy Polk in the
fourth, and a leadoff walk in the
fifth ended Polk's day and
brought on Colin Marshall in
relief. Marshall was chased by
two doubles in the seventh that

"We needed about five or six
innings out of him and he did a
great job," Rewis said of his
pitcher.
Vazquez's homer on a fast-
ball away led to a two-hit,
three-run run inning gave
Welborn all the support he
would need.
"I was thinking fastball and
he came at me with a fastball,"
Vazquez said of his homer.
"The outfielder kept running
and I though he was going to
catch it."
The very next inning the
Streaks worked Hornet pitcher
Darris Maze to load the bases
with no outs. Vazquez ripped
another single to bring up
Williams, who was 3-for-3 on
the night.
One pitch later, Sebring
grabbed a 7-0 lead when the
shortstop drilled the Streaks'
12th home run of the season to
the football field.
"I was just trying to have fun,
not do to much",the senior said
of the at-bat. "One of the last

really ready to go there, but I
thought our hitters got some
pitches to hit that they missed
today.
"That's a pretty dadgum
good club over there," Hitt said
of Broward. "They have been
all year. They've got pitching,
they've got offense, they can
play defense, they do it all."
Hitt said it would be hard to
bid farewell to the 13 sopho-
mores, who complied 71 wins,
two straight playoff appear-
ances and a trip to the state
tournament in their two sea-
sons.
"They set a lot of precedents
at this school. They'll be a
tough group to say goodbye to,
but we've got to welcome back
the freshmen that will return to
this program next year as soph-
omores and welcome in the new
class and get ready.
"There's no rest for the
weary. It's one of those things
where you've just got to get
ready for next year."


the last nights out here."
After the Hornets countered
with a run in the third, Sebring
answered with a set of runs in
the fourth to go up 10-1.
Abeln drove in two of the
three scores when his bunt was
thrown into right field, resulting
in a three-base error. He would
then come in on a wild pitch
before Welborn's single to right
ended the game.
"(Welborn) and Dusty have
really hit the ball well lately and
it really doesn't surprise me,"
said Rewis.
Two days earlier, the Streaks
locked up the top seed in the
district, sweeping the season
series against Riverdale with a
4-2 win. Sebring now will host
the district tournament and get a
first round bye.
"Feels really good to get that
first round bye," said Welborn.
"Get a day off, see if we can
win the championship."
"It helps out our pitching a
lot," said Williams. "And it
helps us out that we don't have
to play a lot of games, we just
have a couple."

Four Sebring men made their annual trip to compete in the horseshoe competition at the Sugar Fest
in Clewiston Saturday, but only two came back winners. The doubles team (from left) Haywood
Sanders and Hubert Holdman won first place while Stanley Holdman and Adam Wallace got
bumped out of the contest. Sanders said the tournament was organized differently this year by mak-
ing the top players 'knock heads' in the beginning.

game-tying sacrifice fly set the
stage for Gose's chopper.
"There's a difference
between being close and under-
standing what it takes to win,
and it shows," Hardee head
coach Donnie Carver said.
"Kim Ward didn't give up an
earned run tonight. They got six
runs, all on errors."
Ward, a South Florida
Community College signee,
battled despite knowing her
grandfather was near death after
a severe stroke.
"She's had a tough go of it
this season," Carver said. "To
come out and give heart like
that, it says the world about her.
(Head coach) Carlos (Falla) is
getting a good player at SFCC."
While Carver was disap-
pointed the team could not
deliver the win for Ward, he
hated, too, to see the Wildcats'
finest hitting night of the season
go for naught.
"That's the.best we've hit the
ball all season," he said. "We

only struck out twice. Usually
we average about 13 a game."
Carver was impressed that it
came against Carson (5-5), who
allowed only three hits in the
first six innings before giving
up three in the seventh and two
in the eighth, while emerging
with a complete game win.
"Kendall did a great job on
the mound," Tolar said. "She
just got rattled there in the sev-
enth."
Yet her defense, which
turned a pair of double plays,
was there to back her up. Tolar
pointed to the play of Jessica
Cooley, who was converted
from catcher to second baseman
three-quarters of the way
through the season, as key.


"Jessica had a really great
night defensively," he said-. "I
can't ask for more than what
she did."
Carver believes if he can see
such adjustments from the
Wildcats, his team can win the
District 10-3A tournament as a
No. 5 seed.
"We've got a chance to win
districts," he said. "I hope the
girls believe in themselves."
Tolar just wants to see his
team hit more consistently as it
enters the District 14-4A post-
season, but the Streaks dis-
played an ability to come
through in the clutch Thursday.
"I'd have liked to have hit the
ball better than we did, but we
hit it when we had to," he said.

Lurking

for prey
My cat lurked in the
shrubs watching her prey -
the unsuspecting lizards and
birds. Quietly she laid wait-
ing to pounce when her prey
was unaware about the dan-
gers surrounding them. As I
watch my cat, I think of the
sexual molesters and
pedophiles.
With evil intentions and
uncontrolled sexual impulses,
they lurk in our neighbor-
hoods, parks, playgrounds,
supermarkets, malls and
shopping centers, places of
worship and in the vicinity of
our schools. And just like my
cat and other animals of prey,
the sexual predator is laying
in wait to pounce on unsus-
pecting children. The preda-
tor sneaks into the homes of
unsuspecting adults robbing
their children of their inno-
cence, their mental health
and even their lives.
Recently, my son and I
came face to face with a reg-
istered sex-offender, at a
church we were visiting.
While I know that people can
change and become good
with God's guidance, and
that he was not a threat in
that public arena, still his
presence with all the children
.in attendance made me feel
uncomfortable. Surely, law
enforcement officers told him
to stay away from places
children frequent.
A mother of two came to
the News-Sun with her con-
cerns and revealed that a sex-
ual predator who lives in
close proximity of a Sebring
school has been seen hanging
_ out after school has been
released and watching the
students on their way home.
This mother went on to say
that she had an uneasy feel-
ing knowing that he was
lurking close by, especially
after school.
A respected member of the
community revealed to me
that she was in her car and
had stopped at a traffic light,
when she happened to look
in the car next to hers, and
there sat an individual mas-
turbating. She said that she
was shocked, but at the same
time relieved that her chil-
dren were not traveling with
her.
These felons have placed
parents in a state of panic-
fear. Recently, I learned
about the troubles of a moth-
er who is a professional
career woman, whose hus-
band works at night. She is
so fearful for her children's
safety that she had placed
additional beds in her bed-
room so that they can all
sleep together. This mother is
traumatized by what has been
happening in recent months,
and more so since Jessica
Lunsford's kidnapping and
subsequent murder. Not only
are the families of victims
traumatized but also parents
with no ties to the victims of
these horrendous crimes.
Sheriff Jeff Daisy along
with Mark Lunsford,
Jessica's father, went to
Tallahassee to push for
tougher laws against sexual
predators, and tougher laws
for those who harbor sex
offenders illegally.
The two are seeking to
have the "Jessica's Law"
passed. If this law is passed,
funding would be available
for Global Positioning
Satellite tracking, where seri-
ous offenders would face
lifelong monitoring. They
also are calling for tougher
penalties for those who are
found guilty of harboring

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


POW survives German torture


School honors his

accomplishments
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
eorge Sekel of Sebring was inducted into
Sthe Meadowbrook, Ohio High School Hall
of Fame April 23.
The purpose is to recognize and honor those
who through their performance and achievements
reflect credit on the school. Also, it is to inspire
present-day students to establish goals for their
futures, and rise to high levels of achievement.
"I know George personally and he is truly a
compassionate, good person, always looking for
the best in everyone with whom he associates. He
is definitely deserving of the honor,"
Meadowbrook High School Principal Charles E.
Chippi said.
& Sekel was born and raised in Buffalo, Ohio,
attending Buffalo High School, which was later
consolidated with others to form Meadowbrook.
"My family was poor. But my goal was to
make something of myself. I'd sit in study hall
and look at magazines from different institutes
and focused on Muskingham College. Our French
class went there to see a French play. 'Boy,
would I like to be in that play,' I thought. And
eventually, I was," Sekel-said.
At Muskingham College in New Concord,
Ohio (astronaut John Glenn graduated one year
earlier) Sekel worked with the groundskeeper,
mowing and trimming to pay for tuition. In
December 1942, of his freshman year, he enlisted
in the Army Reserves and was selected for Army
Specialist Training Program similar to today's
Reserve Officers' Training Corps. He only fin-
ished his second semester before being called up
in May 1943, not completing his last three years
until after the war.

Off to war
In January 1944, Sekel landed at Anzio, Italy.
He was a private in the 179th Infantry, 45th
Regiment. Overrun by the Germans, in February
Sekel was taken prisoner.
"It can't be described. Our company was sur-
rounded. My commanding officer told me 'it's no
use' and we put down our arms and surrendered,"
SSekel said.
The prisoners of war were marched out of
Anzio, leaving behind the dead and frozen. It was
a demoralizing no-man's land and American
planes strafed them several times, mistaking the
columns of POWs for Germans.
"The bullets zinged along the bank as they
came straight at us, but when they winged, and
were able to recognize us as Americans and stop
firing," Sekel said.
Marched all the way to Rome, the prisoners
were taken to a movie studio. \ which v. as like a
large barn. The floor was covered with striw -and


excrement. Men were crammed a\ all-to- -
wall ... many of them sick and
wounded. 4
"You could barely .
move. There were \
hundreds of us, and
when I asked about my
commanding officer, I
was told he'd escaped. \
Something clicked. I had
to get out, and I dedicated .
the rest of my time to escape \
and sabotage their war effort. \
That became my mantra ind I
was pretty successful in little
ways," Sekel said. \
Later they were taken to a
barbed wire camp and it was the
first time Sekel ate a cat. \
"It was delicious. The German \
commandant had a German shepherd \
we wanted, but we never caught it. I
quickly developed the mentality of a
predator in order to surn i\ e." Sekel said.
For six months his family) recei ed
cables first saying he was missing in
action and then dead. He'd become a non-
person. There was no record of Sekel, but
that wasn't unusual. He was only one of thou-
sands of the numerous nationalities interred in the
Laterina, Italy camp.

Trying to escape
"My first escape was a silly idea. We'd traded
to be in a barracks close to the fence. We decided
a first wave of men would throw themselves
across the fence as a bridge and the rest would
climb over them. A few got out. But they were
killed and brought back and shown to us as an
example," Sekel said.
The next escape plan was to dig a tunnel -
from the end of the barracks to the fence was
approximately 100 yards, and on the other side
was a stream. There was an air raid gully behind
the barracks, which the prisoners were continu-
ously cleaning out, so they filled their pant legs
and pockets with dirt from the tunnel and scat-
tered it in the gully. Only large enough to crawl


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
George Sekel peruses his POW certificate with pho-
tos on his coffee table at his Sebring home. It says:
'Notice: American POW #15360427 George Sekel
on 4/3/44 became prisoner of war. No pocket money
has been given him until now.'


him in a hole on the parade grounds and kept him
in it two weeks. We crawled out at night and
brought him food. And he lived," Sekel said.
Finally, in a German POW camp at Moosburg
(north of Munich) they were registered. At Stalag
7A there were thousands of men.
"We were bad off, but there was a separate sec-
tion of the camp for the Russians. And they did-
n't get anything," Sekel said.
Escape was a constant plan. He faked sickness
in an attempt to be repatriated, and was sent to
the hospital.
"I ate cellophane because it shows up as a scar
on your stomach. We had all kinds of tricks.
While I was in the hospital two weeks, I organ-
ized a basketball game against the French who
worked in the hospital as orderlies. I'd egg them
on: 'Us sick Americans can beat you.' I played
my heart out in that game, then ran back to my
bed and covered myself with the blanket. When
the doctors came to check me and lifted the blan-
ket, the steam actually rose in that cold room.
They diagnosed me with fever, and the next thing
I knew I was operated on. Much later in life
when my gallbladder was removed, it was dis-
covered the Germans had removed my appen-
dix," Sekel said.
At Moosburg, Sekel worked on a hof (an
estate) doing farm work with German villagers.
In September and October, they harvested wheat
with a thrashing machine, and he sabotaged it
with rocks, but only stopped it temporarily. He
also cut wood, which was given to various fami-
lies living on this estate.
Toward the end, he was sent to Hammerstein
2B in north central Pomerania. Since this was
near Danzig Poland, they were more hesitant
about escape because it meant going to Russia.
However, plans continued.
"Out of 12 Americans, three of us were plot-
ting actively and the others were sympathetic.
But there was always the fear that someone might
report you," Sekel said.
Afraid to.speak openly, they used hand signals.
In December 1944, they could hear the guns on
the Russian front as their captors and villagers,
readied for evacuation. But it was the POWs

DIVERSIONS


Past and present favorites come home on DVD


BySHARONJONES
News-Sun
To escape the spring movie doldrums,
look no further than DVD.
The blockbusters of fall and winter 2004
are marching into video stores over the next
few weeks along with several must-see
art classics that never made it out of the big
cities in their theatrical release.
For example, this week alone, you can
see Zhang Yimou's epic martial arts
romance, "House of the Flying Daggers,"
or watch John Travolta play a failed mid-
dle-aged writer in "A Love Song for Bobby
Long."
Not everything is for the intelligencia.
Vin Diesel's "XXX" is coming out again on
DVD ratcheted up with new features. If
your in the mood for classic camp, you can
catch Errol Flynn in the 1935 version of
"Captain Blood."
Here's a sampling of what's in store:

becomes wrongfully enslaved and upon his
escape turns to piracy. Olivia de Havilland
is the woman he desires. Released by:
Warner Bros. Running time: 1 hour, 39
minutes. Not rated.
"Meet the Fockers" Once should
have been enough for this saga about mis-
matched blended families. In the sequel to
"Meet the Parents," Greg Focker, (Ben
Stiller) and Pam Byrnes (Teri Polo) endure
more pre-marital embarrassment when their
families are introduced to each other. More
dizzying, raunchy silliness ensues. Also

version of the film, 85 bloopers and deleted
-scenes, and a mini-documentary about

ened by his family friendly turn in "The
Pacifier," they can revisit him in one of his
earlier star-making roles. Diesel plays an
extreme sports athlete who is called upon to
handle a dirty job for the government. As a
reluctant super-spy, he gets the big guns,
the fast cars and, of course, the girls.

tary by director Rob Cohen, several fea-
turettes, and Hatebreed's music video "I
Will be Heard." Released by: Columbia

"I tell you the
truth, the man who
does not enter the
sheep pen by the
gate, but climbs in by
some other way, is a
thief and a robber.
The man who enters
by the gate is the
shepherd of his
sheep." (John 10:1,2)
Who are Christ's
sheep? Jesus tells us
how to recognize
them by giving us
this description: "My
sheep listen to my
voice; I know them,


i false shepherds.
Jesus points out a
truth that applies to
shepherds in the
fields as well as to
spiritual shepherds.
True shepherds use
the gate to the sheep
pen. Thieves and rob-
bers enter some other
MENT way. True shepherds
S come to Christ's
GOD sheep in his name.
They come as
chard Christ's ambassa-
fe dors, bringing only.
the message of his
word. This is what
Jesus means when he says, "I
am the gate for the sheep."
The words of Christ feed and
nourish Christ's sheep. Only
Christ's word can direct
Christians along the path he
wants them to follow through
life. Only Christ's word can
give the necessary warnings
against false and dangerous
paths. True shepherds will show
that they are such by coming as
faithful ambassadors of Christ,
who is the gate for the sheep.
Does your pastor meet these
requirements? Does he pro-
claim to you the whole counsel
of God, no more and no less?

and they follow me. I give them
eternal life." This is a picture to
which Christian people and
their pastors will give special
attention. What is a good
barometer of a Christian's
health? What is it that
Christians and their pastors
should be most concerned
about? "My sheep listen to my
voice;...they follow me." That
sums it all up.
The word pastor means shep-
herd. Pastors are Christ's under-
shepherds. In these words
addressed to certain Pharisees
who were not true shepherds,
Christ speaks about true and


Then praise the Savior for pro-
viding so faithfully to you.
Not all shepherds are true
shepherds. Some may claim to
be and sincerely desire to be
true shepherds, but they really
are not, because they them-
selves have been misled. So
they are not faithful to God's
word in everything they teach.
They may not recognize the
gospel of Christ in word and
sacrament as the only means of
grace, the only means whereby
sinners may be brought to faith
and nourished in their faith.
They try to build Christ's king-
dom with human means and
methods. Beware of false shep-
herds! Christ says they are
thieves and robbers. Do not let
anyone rob you of your salva-
tion, no matter how sincere they
are, if they are not proclaiming
the whole gospel of Jesus Christ
our crucified and risen Lord and
Savior!

walk," Sekel said.
From December of 1944
until March of 1945, they
walked 30-50 kilometers every
day.
"We stayed in barns, (over
there they are part of the house.)
And survival was still our only
thought. You couldn't break
ranks or you would be shot,"
Sekel said.
Near Hanover, Sekel and two
others broke out of the barn
they were sleeping in. They
stayed in the woods for 10-15
days, traveling only at night.
But finally, the SS recaptured
them. Normally they would
have been shot on the spot.
There was a new edict from
Adolph Hitler that prisoners of
10 or less shouldn't be taken.
The Germans couldn't handle
the increasing number of
POWs. Sekel pleaded and
negotiated that they were old
prisoners, and had been on
work details.
One of his fellow escapees
was Blackie; a Hispanic from
Colorado who had been wound-
ed in the hip and it had not
healed.
"On the long march he kept
falling back and I stuck with
him and held him up.
Surprisingly, the guard didn't
punish us for lagging. My other
escapee was a Hispanic named
Pedro. When we stumbled on
those SS, I thought 'this is it.'
They argued over us. The one in
charge said he would take us
back and our blood would be on
the commandant. (This was
near Hanover, Germany.) We
were marched away. That was
my lowest point. Two guards
escorted us. I could hear them
behind us fingering their guns.
The dust would jump up with
each plodding step I took. I was
sure we'd be executed. As we
walked past a cemetery, one
guard said, 'now you're going
to join your president.' That
was the first I heard of
Roosevelt's death," Sekel said.
A shot rang, out, and Sekel
felt his back and thought,
"that's not so bad." He didn't
feel an pain. Actually, it hadn't
hit himinThe guard had fired a
warning shot at a man standing

ahead alongside the road. He
yelled "stop" at this man, who
was a Polish prisoner, a trusty
heading back to a farm. His
papers were carefully checked.
That scene is still vivid in
Sekel's mind.

Final escape
When they attempted their
final escape, two days later they
met up with American troops.
Entering the army Sekel
weighed 140-150 pounds, but
by the time he was reunited, he
was down to 85 pounds.
Sekel .was an innocent
Midwestern youth, blessed with
a mixture of courage and igno-
rance. He thought of his family
and home in Buffalo, and that
always sustained him.
"We'd all fantasize about
what our first meal would be
when the ordeal was over. Mine
would be pancakes, eggs,
bacon, sausage, home fries ...
the whole works," Sekel said.
"We never did get enough to
eat, just komisbrot (sawdust
bread.) That's what the German
army got, but our loaf had to be
shared by five or six of us. I
always carried a chunk of it in
my pocket. I'd reach in and feel
it. It was a little piece, really,
and it became dirty, picking up
debris from my pocket. When I
was given more bread, I'd eat
that first piece and put another
in its place," Sekel said.
It gave him hope, and each
time he touched it, he felt
assured that he would survive.

Back at homn '
.Spkel was discharged in
November of 1945 and returned


to the United States. He re-
entered Muskingham College,
but his goals had changed.
"Another veteran was in the
dean's office who'd decided
he'd been through too much
and was giving up college. But
I talked him out of leaving.
Much later he thanked me for
persuading him to stay.
Actually I'd felt the same. In
reality, I was convincing myself
as well," Sekel said.
At Muskingham he was
involved in -band, sang in the
choir, was president of Pi
Gamma U, president of
International Relations, lettered
in baseball, involved in a social
club and was inducted into
0000, which was their highest
honor. They only picked one
senior and one professor and
two juniors to maintain the
club. I was tapped and inducted
out of 1,200 people. It was a
prestigious honor," Sekel said.
As a senior, he saw a "Life
Magazine" feature about the
Berlin airlift. Something
clicked.
He decided to go back to
Germany. Receiving his teach-
ing certificate for French, histo-
ry and physical education, he
was offered a job in
Youngstown, Ohio.
"But I'd set my eye on going
back to Germany. I went to
Washington, D.C. and applied
to every government service
sending people to Germany,"
Sekel said. He took the written
and oral Civil Service test, and
'was accepted for t\[o pos,
-Hungary anti Gerrriany. '. 4
In.. 1948, he. was st 't to
Regensburg (north of Munich,)


Germany, with the military
government, which later
became the diplomatic service.
At a 1954 New Year's party, he
met and subsequently married
his beloved Delores.
"She was from Pomerania;
her family lived just outside of
where I had been a prisoner. My
mother-in-law always said: 'my
son, my son. If I'd known you
were there, with my bare hands
I would have got you,' Sekel
said. "I had worked farm detail,
shoulder to shoulder with the
Germans. I learned something
.. a view from both sides."
Sekel spent 30 years in the
Department of State with
Consulates of Germany,
Turkey, Egypt, and India,
speaking eight languages. After
retirement, he was commander
of the ex-POW group for the
Shenandoah Valley District of
Virginia.
Eventually Sekel and his
wife decided to go somewhere
warmer. In 1990, they came to
Sebring, then returned the next
year and bought a home.
"In the '50s I went back to
see the Moosburg POW camp.
There was a man drying herring
at those remaining barracks and
he stated that four to five fami-
lies had actually lived in there. I
told him 200 of us had lived in
there," Sekel said.
It's estimated that 1,100
World War II veterans are dying
every single day. Their legacy
of courage and valor embodies
the American spirit and is a trib-
ute to American heritage. Sekel
