Officers keep track of predators


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Florida Legislators
have nearly passed the Jessica Lunsford
Act, which would keep sexual predators
imprisoned for life or have them under
24-hour electronic monitoring.
It came from outrage over the kidnap-
ping and killing of Jessica Lunsford, 9,
from the Gulf Coast, who was found
dead March 19. Another young girl from
the Gulf Coast, Sarah Michelle Lunde,
13, was found dead three weeks later.


Both girls were killed by older men,
both of them registered sex offenders but
one of them hadn't told police he had
moved.
The bill would mandate a 25-year to
life prison term for people convicted of
lewd and lascivious molestation of a
child under 12, and lifetime tracking by
radio or satellite system if they are
released.
"If this goes through, there'll be a lot
of people sitting in jail," said Detective
Tom Ouverson of the Highlands County


Sheriff's Office.
Highlands County has 91 registered
sexual offenders. The list if available at
the sheriff's office or on the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement Web
site, http://www3.fdle.state.fl.us/sexu-
alpredators/. Out of the 91 listed, five
are registered sexual predators under
supervision. About 10 of the 91 have
fled registration or probation, with war-
rants out for their arrest.
The sheriff's office is responsible, by
law, for notifying people, door-to-door of


sexual predators who are living in their
immediate area, Ouverson said.
However, deputies do not have to tell
people directly about nearby sexual
offenders.
The two categories differ greatly. In
the simplest terms, a sexual offender has
committed a lewd or lascivious act on
another person. Sexual predators, how-
ever, perform sexual acts on children or
adults by force.
Ouverson said sexual offenders aren't

SFCC ready to celebrate 40 years

AVON PARK
T he South Florida Community
College came to life July 7, 1965,
when the Florida Legislature estab-
lished a policy of placing quality
education within 50 miles of every Florida
resident, and authorized its establishment.
Forty years later, it just keeps on growing.
SFCC was designed to serve the tri-county
DeSoto and Hardee
counties, and has cam-
puses throughout the
Heartland.

Spitting


into the


wind
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Using dip,
chew or snuff is as smart as
spitting into the wind. The only
thing that's going to happen, is
the disgusting, stinking, sticky
mess is going to fly back in the
face of the spitter, gaining in
velocity.
Using spit tobacco leads to
all kinds of problems, and
sometimes very quickly. More
and more teenagers are being
diagnosed with oral problems
directly related to its use.
It shouldn't be a surprise.
Just because there is no smoke
involved, it doesn't mean dip-
ping or chewing are safe. They
are not. Tobacco is tobacco.
Health problems simply move
from the lungs to the mouth.
Ingredients found in spit
tobacco include polonium 210,
(which is nuclear waste),
formaldehyde, nicotine, cadi-
um (which is found in car bat-
teries) arsenic, benzene, and
lead.
That's the message relayed
by Avon Park Middle School
FFA members to hundreds of
young teens Friday at the
school.
Unfortunately, spit tobacco
is very addictive. Many experts
believe it is a harder habit to

SEBRING It was
Wednesday afternoon and
Christopher Goggins was on
his way to work at Wal-
Mart. He'd just left his
Hibiscus Avenue home and
was eastbound on DeSoto
Road.
That's when everything
changed. A 2002 Chevrolet
sport utility vehicle pulled
from Commerce, Center
Drive and into the path of
Goggins. He hit the vehicle
with his 1985 Honda broad-
side.
Goggins suffered serious
injuries and was taken to
Tampa General Hospital by
the Aeromed II helicopter.
He remains in critical con-
dition at the intensive care
unit there with head injuries
including bruising and
swelling of his brain.
Although he can breathe
on his own, the 29-year-old
Sebring man reportedly is
being kept on a respirator to
reduce the stress on his sys-
tem.
Family members said he
remains in a coma with fluid
on the brain that doctors
now are trying to drain. In
addition, Goggins suffered a
broken hip joint, a broken
leg, a broken ankle, a broken

The sole breadwinner for

worked both as a department
head and a remix stocker at

of Twisted Tattoos in down-

That leaves his wife with-
out revenue and four chil-

future.
"His wife Kristy is stay-

he's in the hospital," her
cousin Jennifer Williams
said.

Avon Park residents weigh

area strengths/weaknesses


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK As many as
70 people turned out at the
Avon Park Community Center
Wednesday evening to look at a
vision for the City of Charm.
They used the 20-point pro-
gram called "Clues to Rural
Community Survival" devel-
oped by a Nebraska-based
organization called the
Heartland Center for
Leadership Development.
There were several small
group tables with facilitators,
so each of them could work to
develop what they thought were
the area's primary' strengths and
weaknesses.
There also were several peo-
ple from outside the city who
offered to help with the process.
It began with individuals
determining the top three
strengths and weaknesses of
Avon Park. Those numbers then
were folded into a table consen-
sus, which then were put up on
lists developed by the entire
group.
Those lists then were put on
large sheets of paper on the
wall. Members of the group
were given sticky dots so they
then could give vote on their
opinion of the primary strength
and weakness.
The votes were counted and
the answers prioritized.
"We came up with four top-
ics to establish action commit-
tees on," said Avon Park
Chamber odf Commerce
Executive Director David
Greenslade, who was one of the
primary facilitators of the ses-
sion along with South Florida
Community College Vice
President Leanna Revell and
Highlands County Economic
Development Commission
Executive Director Louise
England.
The number one strength was
"A strong belief in, and support
of education."
The three weaknesses, in
order, were "An evidence of
community pride," "Quality of
business and community life"
and "A willingness to invest in
the future."
"We wanted to limit it to four
topics so we could address the
problems more aggressively,"


he said.
It appeared that most people
wanted to work on the weak-
nesses. There were 21 people
who signed up for the action
committee to work on commu-
dity pride, five who wanted to
address the quality of business
and community life and six
who were willing to work on
the willingness to invest in the
community.
Only four people wanted to*
work on the action committee
dealing with the strong belief
in, and support of education.
Greenslade is planning to set
inaugural meeting dates for the
action committees as well as a
special meeting of the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce
Executive Board.
"The chamber has agreed to
form the committees and come
up with an action plan for each
of these committees," he said.
"We don't want to wait, we
want to go over the results; of,.
the meeting and get started on
this. We have some momentum
started on this and we don't
want to let it slow down."
The project ig the result of a
$5,000 Community Defense
Grant through Enterprise
Florida. The program is
designed to assist communities
that have military bases.
England, who procured the
grant, said the allocation had
nothing to do with anything
happening at the Avon Park Air
Force Range.
"I've gotten many of these
over the years. They can be
used for marketing and studies
- there are a lot of different
things you can use them for,"
she said.
' England said most of the
money was used to print up fly-
ers, for the mailing, for newspa-
per advertisements and for the
used of the HCLD 20-point
program.
"I'm sure there are some dol-
lars left to get started on the
action committees," she said.
Greenslade was pleased in
terms of numbers of people and
the cross section of the commu-
nity who came to participate in
.the program.
He said there already are
plans to call the group back
together again in September.

COKKIU1 ION

In the April 22 edition of the
News-Sun, the narrative of a
wreck on Sebring Parkway was
reversed.
At 10 a.m. Thursday, Margot
Wellsted Kolke, 85, of Sebring,
driving a 2004 Dodge Neon,
decided to cross the Sebring
Parkway at Scenic Highway.
She hit the side of a 1996
Plymouth, driven by 41-year-
old Myrna Sonia Capalbo of
Sebring. The Plymouth over-
turned at least twice. Both cars
landed in the ditch on the east-
bound grass shoulder.
Capalbo told the News-Sun
that she had her seat belt off
when Florida Highway Patrol
arrived because she saw wisps
of smoke from her car and
wanted to get out.
As reported, Florida
Highway Patrol cited Kolke
with violation of the right of
way. Both were treated and
released at Florida Hospital in
Sebring.


He will start at Sun 'N Lake
on Monday.
Friday's meeting was the
first board of supervisors meet-
ing with Severn Trent as the
official staff.

Fire destroys mobile home


OBITUARIES


"- '2 ul A -- .
SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun
State Fire Marshal Mike Douglas investigates the remains of the James Blankenship residence. The
mobile home at 3233 Lagoon Lane, Sebring caught fire about 9:30 p.m. Friday. Neighbor Sonia
Sabatino said there was nobody home at the time of the blaze. Volunteers from both the West
Sebring and Highlands Lakes volunteer fire departments responded to the call. Douglas said his
preliminary investigation determined the fire was electrical in origin. Blankenship reportedly had
been doing extensive renovation to the property. The mobile home was declared a total loss.




Supervisors aim to ramp up



foreclosures in Sun 'N Lake


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING --One message
Sun 'N Lake Improvement
District staff took with them
from the board of supervisors
Friday was, "foreclose."
The district has spent the last
few years going from having a
severe shortage of assessment
funds to getting back in the
black. In fact, said Interim
General Manager Edward
Goscicki, who.is vice president
of Severn Trent Services Inc.,
the district budgeted about $1.5
million in revenue for this point
in the year, and has collected
around $2 million. This has put
the district up by $621,040, of
which $500,000 is in the gener-
.. fund thanks in partrto 'land-
sales.'
Now that the real estate mar-
ket is moving, supervisors want
people who are delinquent on
their assessments to sell the


properties they've held for
speculation, and/or pay up. If
not, they'll face foreclosure so
the district can transfer deeds to
National Recreational
Properties Inc., and get them
sold.
"This is a big opportunity for
the district," Board Chairman
Bob Schaeffer said.
Supervisor Bob Severino is
particularly anxious to move
forward on this. Even if a pend-
ing sale date is a day after a
foreclosure date, he wants the
properties foreclosed. He fig-
ures the good real estate market
has about two or three years left
before it levels off or drops.
"I want those dollars from
the people who are out there,"
he said; '"people waitirig'to cap-
italize on the real estate mar-
ket."
National Recreational
Properties Inc. initiates some
foreclosures, and will pay for

the foreclosing costs on those.
However, if foreclosures are
initiated by the district, then the
district must pay those costs.
The workload on the district.
staff, that of district attorney
John McClure and that of both
the property appraiser and tax
collector has increased dramati-
cally since the real estate mar-
ket began booming in Sun 'N
Lake.
That's part of the problem,
McClure said. It's hard to keep
up. After foreclosing for years
and getting a lot of lots trans-
ferred, he said there isstill plen-
ty to do. In addition to that, the
district must respond in a time-
ly manner to public records
requests. Even, though- Severn--
Trent, as a contracted agency,
may not fall under Florida
Sunshine Statutes, McClure
said the district and its staff and
records do, and phones are ring-
ing at the district town hall
-building for that information.
'Sun 'N Lake Director of
Development Mick Grosh said
that most of these requests are
people trying to get information
on as-of-yet unrecorded deeds.
Add to that a crowded judi-
cial docket, and the fact that
foreclosures often require judi-
cial hearings, and the process is
swamped right now, McClure -
said.
Severino doesn't think it will
go to a judge.
"(We've had) quite a few to
sign off their properties back to
us," he said.

SFCC students honor faculty


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
faculty were honored for teach-
ing excellence during the
College's recent annual Awards
Day ceremony on the
Slighlands campus in Avon
Park.
Each year, students vote
among themselves to honor
professors and instructors who
exhibit exemplary qualities that
go beyond academic standards.
Students presented the 2004-
05 Outstanding Faculty Awards
to Bill Boyer, professor in auto
repair, and to Dr. Peter Carson,
professor in psychology.
Boyer joined SFCC part time
in 1972 and came on board full
time in 1976. Several times, he
has served as faculty council
president and president of the
SFCC chapter of the Florida
Association of Community
Colleges.
In 1999, he was the recipient
of the Faculty Incentive Awards
for facilitating partnerships
between the College and car
dealerships. He recently
received the 2004 President's
Award for Outstanding Faculty.
"I'm very appreciative of
these awards because I'm a year
or two away from my retire-'
ment and to get two awards in
one year is a great honor," said
Boyer. "It's the culmination of
my career."
Boyer earned an associate in
science degree in technical
management from SFCC and
50-60 hours of teacher training
from the University of South
Florida. He gained much of his
knowledge through a lifetime
of experience.
"My dad was an automobile
dealer in Miami," Boyer said. "I
worked in that auto dealership,
part time, from the time I was
13 years old. Then I got inter-
ested in the mechanics and
body repair aspect of it. I
worked there until I moved to
Avon Park in 1965 to be the
service manager of a VW deal-
ership. Then I opened my own

business in Avon Park and oper-
ated that until I went full time at
SFCC."
At SFCC, Dr. Carson also
serves as co-faculty advisor to
SFCC's Brain Bowl Team,
which went to the state tourna-
ment in 2004. Prior to joining
the faculty at SFCC in 1999, he
worked as a senior psychologist
at the Desoto Correctional
Institution.
Carson grew up in New York
City and received his bachelor
in arts degree in psychology
from Brooklyn College of the
City University of New York.
He earned a master of arts
degree and a doctorate from the


University of Mississippi and
completed his clinical psychol-
ogy internship at the University
of Tennessee in 1972.
Before moving to Florida in
1998, Carson worked for more
than 20 years as clinical direc-
tor at the Region I Mental
Health Center in Clarksdale,
Miss.
"I was surprised and thrilled
to be selected for the faculty
award," Carson said. "It is very
gratifying to be recognized by
one's students. I thoroughly
enjoy teaching at SFCC and
working with such a fine group
of students, faculty and staff."

receiving and 2004-05 Outstanding Faculty Award and the 2004 President's Award for Outstanding
Faculty is 'the culmination of my career.'

AVON PARK -The dental
program at, South Florida
Community College, in which
dental hygiene students master
skills while serving the public
in a dental clinic, has been
named Best Student Service by
the Florida Leader magazine,
in its 2005 "Best. of Florida
Schools" issue.
The Florida Leader, which is
published by Oxendine
Publishing, a company based in
Gainesville, recognizes and cel-
ebrates "the outstanding
achievements of Florida stu-
dents, educators and education-
al institutions."
Its annual "Best of" edition
"features the best of everything
from student governments and
campus newspapers to the best
cheerleaders, mascots, classes
and college towns".
SFCC was one of the 50
Florida community colleges
and public and private universi-
ties, whose student organiza-
tions, clubs and college media,
the magazine surveyed to arrive
at its winners.
The award winning dental


program was developed to pro-
vide local dentists with a reli-
able source of skilled labor.
There are really two pro-
grams; a two-year course for 12
dental hygiene students, and a
one year course for 12 dental
assistant students. Both classes
work in the 12-chair clinic that
overlooks Lake Glenada, where
supervised students clean teeth,
take X-rays, and apply sealants.
Students also act as recep-
tionists and book appointments.
There are small fees for the
work the students do. For
example, an adult teeth clean-
ing costs $20; a child's, $10.
"The clinics give the students
experience with patients. The
student performs the procedure,
then the instructor checks the
work. The patient isn't complet-
ed until the job is perfect,"
Rebecca Sroda, director of den-
tal education, said.
Then she smiled,
"Sometimes it takes more than
one visit," she added, "And
each visit is a three-hour
appointment, so although our
fees are reduced, you may pay
with your time."
The clinics are held at the

County adopts record budget, no complaints


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 Aug. 9,
1962.
A record county budget of
$1,136,934 was formally adopt-
ed by the county commissioners
Tuesday. No taxpayers were on
hand to complain, although
Tuesday was the date set for
complaints, if any.
The budget is up $115,202
over last year. Even so, there is
no increase in millage. The
extra money will be raised
through increase in valuations.
The levy will be 18 mills, as it
was last year
A part of Tuesday's meeting
time was given to a discussion
of ways and means of living
within the straitened circum-
stances until the end of the fis-
cal year. Some consideration
was given to the suggestion that
county road and bridge crew
work week be reduced from 50
to 40 hours per week.
Some of the commissioners
said they were reluctant to
make the reduction in hours -


and the resulting reduction in
salaries at that time. "Many
of the men are just getting back
from vacation," Commissioner
Carl McIntyre observed, "and
any cut in pay right now would
hit them pretty hard."
The commissioners agreed to
continue with present schedules
and review the road and bridge
fund balance again at the end of
August. Commission Chairman
Cecil Skipper indicated that he
believes that the 50-hour week
probably can be maintained if
other economies are carefully
practiced.
Need for more effective cir-
cuits in the court house -
another perennial problem -
came up for discussion
Tuesday. Robert Murphy served
as spokesman for the U.S.
Geological Survey staff and
asked permission to install an
air conditioner in the survey
office on the third floor of the
court house.
"We have had an air condi-
tioner sitting on the floor since
April," Murphy said. "We are
already running two air condi-
tioners off one circuit and we
know that is not good. Part of
the time we can't use one of the
conditioners because the circuit
breakers are cutting off."


Murphy explained that the
school board had had an addi-
tional line run from the base-
ment to the third floor, but had
not been able to arrange for
installation of an additional
conditioner. The commissioners
agreed to let the Geological
Survey change the wire to the
other side of the hall and "try
using it".
At the request of
Commissioner Eugene Hamlin
the board voted to contact the
State Road Department about
promised help on constructing a
bridge, on the Arbuckle Creek
road. Hamlin said the help had
been promised some time ago
and is badly needed now.
A letter from Highlands
Development Corporation was
tabled without action. J. D.
Beelei of Sebring, Chairman of


the new corporation, requested
the commissioners to consider
making a grant of $5,000 to the
budget of the organization.
Commissioner Ben McGee
said that specific plans for use
of the money seemed to be
lacking. He said the corporation
had mentioned funds for adver-
tising the county. In the letter
read Tuesday, Beeler said plans
for a campaign to establish a
county-wide mosquito district
.are being considered.

Pariente stresses need to protect


jury trials' 'sharing of power'


By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A girl once
told The Honorable Barbara J.
Pariente, chief justice of the
Florida Supreme Court, that her
mother decided whether people
are innocent or guilty.
Was she a judge, Pariente
asked: "No, a juror."
With all the criticism of
abuses from too many lawsuits,
judges soft on crime, sup-
pressed evidence, or huge dam-
age awards in trials, people in
America should remind them-
selves how fortunate they are
that they can have a trial by
jury, she said.
The judiciary is the only
branch of government that
shares its power directly with
the people, she said.-The nation
confirms its faith in the ability
of the people to decide what's
right or wrong. They are
"judges of the facts," she said.
Sadly, many people don't
seem to want to serve on juries.
They are called but don't show
up and sometimes it seems that
many young people are disen-
gaged from the system.
"I know from the marvelous
essays (written for Law Day)
that we have educated citizens
of tomorrow," she said.
Thomas Jefferson said, she
quoted, "If a nation expects to
be ignorant and free, they
expect what never was and
never will be."
Even an elementary student
who wrote a winning essay this
year said that the American
patriots who fought for inde-
pendence from Great Britain

were ready to lay down their
lives for those rights, including
the right to a trial by jury. A trial
by jury is the way people prefer
to be judged: By their neighbors
and not by their government
Florida's Constitution of
1838 guaranteed the right to
jury, but the greatest threat to
this right came in 1848 when
the legislature passed a law
authorizing judges to seize and
auction at public sale ships ply-
ing the Apalachicola River a
major cotton trade to pay off
the debts of owners. The law
made no provision for trial by
jury.
Under that law, a judge in
Franklin County seized a ship
called the Magnolia to pay the
debts of its owner, the Flint
River Steam Boat Company.
On appeal, Florida's first Chief
Justice Thomas Douglas force-
fully declared the law unconsti-
tutional because it violated the
right to trial by jury.


Still, under the Florida con-
stitution, only free white males
could serve as jurors. This
stayed the same until a case in
1908, 60 years later, where
Florida Justice James B.
Whitfield stunned the Southern
states with an opinion outlaw-
ing the blanket exclusion of
African-American, men on
Florida juries.
"Every person being tried in
a court of justice," Whitfield
wrote, "is entitled to have a jury
selected and summoned with-
out illegal discrimination of any
character."
"We continue to have chal-
lenges to the right of a trial by
jury," Pariente said, whether it
be budget constraints or apathy
of those called to serve.
"Despite the criticism of the
jury system, we don't think of
giving that up," she said. "It's
the continuation of a practice
that started over 1,000 years
ago."

quit than smoking tobacco is.
Worse, a body adjusts to the
nicotine, developing a tolerance
to it, so over time a user has to
consume more and more, or use
stronger brands. It's called
addiction.
Sadly, despite its obvious
drawbacks the spitting, the
bad breath, the yellow teeth -
the use of spit tobacco is con-
sidered to be adult and cool.
Young people in particular


often point to sports heroes as
the reason they use.
In fact, 70 percent of major
league baseball players don't
use spit tobacco, and many of
the ones who do or did, are
speaking out against it, warning
others of the dangers.
Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt
Schilling has been particularly
active in publicizing his battle
to quit.
Peer pressure is a big prob-
lem. Tobacco has been an
accepted part of the culture fpr
so long it may be hard to break
the cycle.


And it starts early, For exam-
ple, some candy companies
market shredded bubble gum,
or gum tapes, in spit tobacco-
like cans. Beef jerky can also be
bought that way.
With one local 17-year-old
diagnosed with oral cancer and
a 14-year-old with gum dam-
age, both as a result of using
spit tobacco, experts and educa-
tors are hoping that as the dan-
gers of its use are brought to
light, more people will try to
quit, and many more will never
start.


Quick facts about spit tobacco
Dip and chew are not safe substitutes for smoking cigarettes.
E Adolescents who chew or dip are more likely to become cigarette smokers.
Spit tobacco contains 28 carcinogens.
Spit tobacco use in the United States is higher among young white males.
Nationally, an estimated 3.5 percent of adults are current spit tobacco users.
In 2001, the five largest tobacco manufacturers spent $236.7 million on spit tobacco
advertising and promotion (the industry calls its product smokeless tobacco).
Nationally, an estimated 6.7 percent of high school students currently use spit tobacco;
an estimated 3.7 percent of middle schoolers do.

His problems don't stop
there. Reportedly his insurance
with Wal-Mart will not go into
effect until October.
"Between this and his last
operation, they have depleted
all of their funds," Williams
said. "Any help that they can
get is going to be greatly appre-
ciated."
While family members stay
close at Tampa General, the


four children remain here in
Highlands County.
"They have a little girl who
turned I on the day of the acci-
dent," Williams said. "He has a
4-year-old son and they are in
the process of adopting two
children that were abandoned."'
Goggins' two children have
been staying with his in-laws,
while the other two have been
staying with his father's family.
In the interim, family mem-
bers say they have established

can live where they wish. Sexual predators, by
contrast, must have no unsupervised contact with
children or minors, and must live a certain dis-
tance from certain locations, as ordered by a
judge.

Wal-Mart manager Jeff
Johnson said the store employ-
ees have raised en excess of
$2,000 since the accident.
On Thursday, the store
employees had a strawberry
shortcake sale to help raise
additional money for their fall-
en co-worker.
"We just want to let the com-
munity know we appreciate
everything they've done
already," said Goggins' father
Larry. He has been at the hospi-
tal with his son since the acci-
dent occurred.


Detective Sgt. Rob Dilling of the Lake Placid
Police Department said there is a lot of gray area
depending on the circumstances. Every time he
deals with a sexual offender case, he checks the
"Criminal Jury Instructions Handbook," pub-
lished by Gould Publications. An 18-year-old boy
could have sex with a 16-year-old girl and be
charged as a sexual offender, Dilling said, but not
necessarily a sexual predator.
"Should he go a'way't"jai'forreet, locked tip
forever and never get out?'"Dilling'skked. '


FFA students pitch against spit tobacco


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Friday
afternoon the Commons at
Avon Park Middle School was
rocking as the members of FFA
put on a program warning about
the dangers of spit tobacco.
With powerful videos and
live action skits the students
explained the different diseases
spit tobacco causes, its social
drawbacks, and the toxic chem-
icals found in it.
Moving stories of young men
who had died as a direct result
of spit tobacco use, brought a
personal touch.
The FFA members are very
concerned about the issue. All
of them know at least someone
who is using, or thinking about
using. The group worries that
spit tobacco use is up. When the
opportunity came for the FFA to
do something, they were eager
to try.
In addition to the three per-
formances on Friday, the group

buildings, including the
Museum of Florida Art and

Academy, the auditorium and
the Panther Gymnasium.
Over the next four months,
to celebrate its birthday, the
News-Sun will take a close
look at all the different pro-
grams and divisions that form
the institution.
Like all community col-
leges, SFCC has an academic
program that provides the first
two years of a traditional, lib-
eral arts education. Its gradu-
ates usually go on to finish
their bachelor's degree at a
four-year institution.
The applied sciences and
technologies department is the
largest division of the college
and includes all the vocational
programs and professional cer-
tification courses.
For example, the nursing,
cosmetology, culinary arts,
computer science, law enforce-
rhent, ahndparamedic/emer-

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
FFA members at Avon Park Middle School wowed their audiences
Friday afternoon as they presented a program of videos, and skits to
warn about the dangers of using spit tobacco. Here are the deadly
characters: Nicotine, polonium 210, formaldehyde, cancer and
radioactive elements, all ingredients in chew and dip.

going on throughout the year.
"Once you start, that's the
end," Catherine Walker, an FFA
member, said of the habit.
"Don't start," said her fellow


grams are all within the divi-
sion.
SFCC is a primary source of
adult and continuing education
as well.
General Equivalency
Diploma and other alternate
high school equivalency cours-
es are available, and the col-
lege offers a wide variety of
life enhancing courses for local
residents that are non-credit.
For example, the college offers
a water exercise program that
is held in The Hotel Jacaranda
pool in Avon Park.
SFCC also runs a huge
English as a second language
program, and works with area
high schools to provide dual
enrollment opportunities for
advanced students.
It is a cultural center for the
community. Not only is the
Museum of Florida Art and
Culture a vibrant, growing
institution, but the college's
auditorium is often used by
service groups for fund-raising
concerts. It also hosts the
artists' series and the matinee
series, where music is brought
into the community. .
These concerts hIaVe become


actors, roaring in unison. "Dip
and chew, that's not for you!"

One of them smiled and
added, "write that in bold type."


so popular, two more events
have been added, the jazz
series and the chamber series.
Of course, the college has an
athletics program, and Panther
teams have developed loyal
followings. They offer men's
baseball and women's softball
and volleyball.
One of the most exciting of
the recent additions to the col-
lege's offerings is the partnered
approach it is taking to pro-
duce local elementary school
teachers. Today, a Highlands
County resident can obtain a
four-year degree in elementary
education from a school like
the University of South
Florida, without leaving the
county.
This means, student teachers
will intern locally, instead of in
Gainesville or Tampa, so local
principals have a better chance
of finding new talent close to
home.
All of this means that SFCC
is the most comprehensive
community college in Florida.
Which is why its new motto is:
"We've got it all where do.
you fit in?"

Land takes off in Highlands County


Realtors try to keep up with sales
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Real estate has taken off in Highlands County.
"They must have airplanes flying with signs saying, 'Buy in
Highlands County,' said Teresa Bock, a Realtor with
Coldwell Banker Highlands Properties.
"Anything and everything is moving in all over the state, and
in Highlands County not just from the north, but from the
coasts as well. What was a buyer's market only six or eight
months ago, is now a sellers market. Some sellers are getting
greedy with their prices, but if the price is right and the house
is in good condition, it will sell."
On Monday, April 18, there were 324 single family homes
listed for sale in Highlands County.
The properties ranged in price from a house selling for
$19,500 in Avon Park, to one in Lorida selling for $3,395,000.
There are nine properties worth over a million dollars current-
ly for sale.
"Property is selling so quickly," Bock explained, "it's hard,
because the prices are going up so quickly too.

Oasis Day Spa expands to pamper customers


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Business
has been so good for Oasis Day
Spa that its owner has had to
expand and add on more staff.
The newly expanded Oasis
Day Spa, 746 U.S. 27 North
(across from Badcock Home
Furnishings), has four new
treatment rooms furnished with
state-of-the-art equipment. One
room is for manicures and pedi-
cures; one for massages only;
one for facials; and the other is
for body treatments such as a
salt glow or mud treatments.
Chrissy Singletary, owner of
Oasis Day Spa, expanded from
her current location at 748 U.S.
27 to 746 in the same building
to make room for the new
rooms. She also added four
more employees, giving her a
total of six staff working at the
spa.
Singletary has lived in Avon
Park 13 years. "Originally I
became a respiratory therapist,
but decided that was not for me.
When a friend had permanent
makeup applied, I loved the
way it looked, so I had it done,
and thought it was a great con-
cept. I went to school in
Orlando six years ago and got
my state health license for per-
manent makeup, doing eye-
brows, eye liner, and lip liner. I
also travel to Sebring and


Winter Haven to apply perma-
nent makeup at various salons."
Singletary said.
Two and a half years ago she
purchased Oasis Day Spa and
became a licensed aesthetician,
feeling that this service would
go hand-in-hand with her other
offerings and interests. .
Facial treatments start at $50
and last 75 minutes. A moistur-
izing collagen facial plumps up
the skin, and an oxygen facial is
great for acne problems. Micro
-dermabrasions are $125 per
session. This exfoliation helps
to correct fine lines, skin dam-
age, large pores, or acne. Oasis
Day Spa staff also do chemical
peels for $50. Waxing of the
face and body also is offered.
"I analyze the client's skin to
see what might improve it,"
Singletary said.
Singletary graduated in the
top of her skin care class, and
she has judged regional and
national competitions. She is on
the board of directors for Ridge
Technical Center, Haines City,
where they teach skin care.
Both therapeutic and
Swedish massage is available at
Oasis Day Spa. For $60, the salt
glow exfoliation uses dead sea
salts mixed with oils, and then
the client is rubbed with hot
towels, followed by a half hour
massage with vitamin oils.
There's also a mud treatment,


using dead sea muds which de-
toxify skin, again finished up
with a massage and oil treat-
ment.
"We have a myriad of cus-
tomers. There's the young with
acne, people in their 30s who
are stressed and need to relax,
and older customers needing
therapeutic care. Male or
female, everyone wants
younger, fresher looking skin,"
Singletary said.
Special pedicures for diabet-
ics are available. Regular mani-
cures are $15. Pedicures run
$25 for the regular and $35 for
the spa specialty. Working from
the knee down, a mask is
applied, ending with a relaxing
massage. They can apply a vari-
ety of extracts such as milk and
honey, lavender, peppermint or
sea marine.
"These pedicures are unlike
any others. You relax on a
chaise lounge in a private room
with soft music and candles,"
Singletary said.
All Oasis Day Spa employ-
ees are certified and licensed in
their area of expertise. Call 452-
2639 for an appointment. Hours
are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday
through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. Saturday, with evening
sessions available by special
appointment.

REALTORS
Continued from 13A
way, that is often done several
times in a day), new fact sheets
for the tubes attached to the for
sale signs have to be run off
and distributed, e-mail has to
be answered and sent, and
phone calls made.
Then there are future events
to be planned for. For example,
Bock had a closing coming up
later in the week.
Now is the time, she said, to
prepare for it. "Because it's
more than just saying, 'Yup,
we're ready to close.'
"No matter how much you
- prepare, something always
copies up. In today's market
you have to keep checking
every day. I don't want to get
to a closing and have all hell
break loose. I use my planner
every day. I keep notes about
where I am in the process."
She smiled and added, "Real
estate can take over your life."
In addition to being organ-


ized, a Realtor needs to be a
psychologist.
"You're having to work
through a lot of other issues,
people let attitudes get in the
way," Bock said.
"I've had times when the
seller didn't like the buyer. I've
had to say, 'Do you want to
hold onto the house just
because you don't like him?"'
There was a time, for exam-
ple, when the seller was out of
town, and Bock went to check
on his property shortly before
the final inspection. Not only
had he allowed the yard to
grow over, in an attempt to halt
a leak, he had stuck a stick in a
leaky hose in the refrigerator.
The fix hadn't worked.
Water-was all overthe floor, -
and the prospective buyers
were due later that day.
Bock called her husband,
who came to the rescue, buy-
ing the less than $5 part. and
fixing the problem in plenty of
time to clean up.
Which only goes to show
that whatever rolls down hill,


often lands on the Realtor.
So what I learned is that
Realtors have to be able to
track several sales at once, in
addition to doing research and
data entry, soliciting listings,
preparing marketing cam-
paigns, showing houses,
arranging for lock boxes and
yard signs, handling paper-
work, holding hands, and
working the occasional house-
hold repair. Oh, and they have
to keep current on rulings,
laws, and zoning decisions,
and it doesn't hurt to under-
stand tax structures, all while
being on call 24/7.
It's kind of like juggling
knives while jumping on a
trampoline,.
So it turns out Realtors earn
those vacations to Aruba after
all.

Any business person who
has a job they wish to spotlight
in the Tuffin'It With Tuffley
feature, call 385-6155, ext.
528.

According to Carden, the procedure takes about one and a halfhours, removes dryness and gives legs
and feet a more youthful appearance. Gaines said, 'It's Wonderful.'

Canals are built

for a reason
Editor:
Florida is a state of canals.
We get rains and the water
through the canalization is
dumped into the ocean or gulf.
Each year there is a wet sea-
son, rivers overflow and the
small animals like baby pan-
thers, baby bears and deer
drown. Plus, the humans do not
have water when the dry season
comes.
There is plenty of wasteland
in Florida, let's use it for water
storage. Raise fish in the reser-
voirs, water management peo-
ple could double as it would
take a large staff to manage this
project if done in a correct
manner.
We have a wonderful land.
Let's take it forward.
Canals cannot be eliminated.
They were constructed for a
reason. Reservoirs would
recharge the aquifer and stop
the sink holes. Loss of pressure
in the aquifer is the cause of our
problems.

ab. d4low d


Michael A. Smith comes
across as a calm, reasonable
man in a brief interview with a
Kansas City, Mo., TV station.
Not the type to get arrested for
disorderly conduct.
But he was indeed arrested
and charged with disorderly
-" conduct on Tuesday night.
s According to the police, Smith
stood in a line of people wait-
ing for Jane Fonda to sign a
copy of her new book, "My
Life So Far," her autobiogra-
phy. When he .got to Fonda
after waiting 90 minutes, he
spat a mouthful of tobacco
juice in her face.
Smith later said he didn't
ake Golf normally chew tobacco but did
ke Golf so just to spit it at her. He
la State explained that Fonda spit on
him and other veterans for
ade by: years and was without remorse,
-Lov-Le even though he now has to go
Brady's, to court next month.
t, Bob's For those who don't remem-
in D's ber, Jane Fonda strongly
[elinski, opposed American involve-
a Cola, ment in the'Vietnam War. She
s Place visited Hanoi during the 'war
World, and was even photographed on
ific Tee a North Vietnamese anti-tank
-On the" gun. Recently she apologized
Pickett, for the photo, but has never
ken, Le said she regretted her stance on
Olympic the war.
Steak- For Smith, the apology was-
rborside n't enough. He views her as a
;r, Ridge traitor, and told The Kansas
Roserios City Star that "a lot of veterans
le Cafe, would love to do what I did."
ico Bell, He called his act "'a debt of
ty Salon honor."
No one who knows me
to thank would confuse me for an apol-
manager ogist for Jane Fonda. I think her
al John going over to enemy territory
le men's to encourage them and discour-
getting age our men in uniform was at
- Joyce the very least a thoughtless,
Shirley disgraceful act, and at worst
Helen treason. I grant she has a right
, Tom to her opinion about U.S. gov-
m, Barb ernment policy, but you don't
, Carol go undermining men and
staff of women getting shot at..%'hile
Serving their nation. ,./
rful pic- I also understand Smith's-
.obinson anger. Vietnam was a war that'
Pickett; wounded our country, and for
iade by some there is still pain. I am
ily; and young enough where the war
Renne isn't a strong memory for me,
d Bob but I know that no one wants to
yonewe serve their country and be
andrum greeted with spittle and insults
Sebring when they return.
Sebring The fact Smith was willing
to chew tobacco just for the
.' occasion (I don't understand
how anyone can chew it more
than once anyway) shows the
depth of feeling that those who
,were involved in that time
have. Anyone who thinks
Americans have gotten over
Vietnam need look no further
than last year's presidential
election, when the John Kerry's
and George W. Bush's service
records during that conflict
were examined, debated, and
criticized.
In spite of understanding all
that I cannot give Michael
Smith a pass on his behavior.
Spitting tobacco juice in a
woman's face isn't expressing
an opinion it is an assault. In
doing so Smith did not prove
that Fonda's opinions or -
actions were right or wrong. He
only proved he was capable of
the same low kind of behavior
SI people who should have known
! better subjected him and his
fellow soldiers to years ago.
Would it not have been bet-
ter, I wonder, for him to stand
in line and when he got to
speak to her politely congratu-
late her on her success? And
when she acknowledged that,
perhaps then to tell her he was
a vet and she was welcome for
his risking his life so that she
had the freedom to .express her
opinions, as wrong as they
might be, without fear of a gov-
- eimnent silencing or punishing
her? Would that not have said
far more than a mouthful of
tobacco juice?
I guess it's easy for me to
and say. I am not a Vietnam Vet.
Michael Smith shows that
for some of them, the wounds
aren't healed yet.

Sometimes you just need fun, and socks

However, a couple of
the young girls still
wanted to throw the
ball. They did better
than I ever did at


,l n *. -


On a recent week-
end, I learned the real
meaning of the word
fun: Throwing
around the football
with kids.
A group of my fel-
low Kiwanians and I
spent the morning
and afternoon of
April 16 having a REA
"Day of Fun" at the
Hansen House, a PHIL A
division of the "
Children's Home Society.
These kids come from poten-
tially abusive situations or bro-
ken homes and we wanted them
to have fun for a weekend when
the weather turned great for get-
ting outside.
Boy, did they enjoy it.
The first thing the kids want-
ed to do was use the a "bounce
house" an inflatable
screened in trampoline --pro-
vided by MidFlorida Credit
Union. We provided the other
games, food and fun.
Tom Milam flew kites with
them. Charles Hatfield showed
kids how to make a chip shot in
golf. April Adams brought a
croquet set and set up a few
games. I brought a football and
planned to organize a team.
Forget organization. We ran a
few plays, but they quickly
moved on to other things.

At noon, we had a hot dog
lunch, grilled by Wade
Taveniere and Deanna's hus-
band, Jerry, then went back out
for a second round.
Heavy afternoon breezes
made for great kite-flying. I fig-
ure we got those kites up at

until they got away from us. If
it hadn't been for the strings
catching under roof shingles or
in "kite-eating trees," some of
those tiny kites would still be
flying.

I didn't even mind climbing
all over the roof to get them
down. I found at least three
other footballs while I was up
there, and a missing shoe.
One thing I didn't find was
socks.
Wade Taveniere told me the
one thing the Hansen House
always needs is children's
socks and underwear.
Apparently, it's the one thing
kids don't have any extras of
when they arrive there, and the
one thing they will always take
home with them.
Wade and Kathy Taveniere
made the point to buy several
packages of the clothes for the
kids before arriving that morn-
ing. It really made the day.
I can't thank the workers
there enough for the good time.
I think I had as much fun as the
kids, and got some sun in the
process.
Still, I'm sure the workers
appreciated us taking the kids
off their hands for a while, and
-giving them something to do'.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
April 24, 1995: Eric
Delynko's curveball was the
key in his three-hit, 6-2 vic-
tory for Lake Placid over
Fort Meade. The Dragons
had eight hits of their own,
and took advantage of a
third-inning throwing error
that allowed three runs to
score.

25 Years Ago
April 25, 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.

Hancock Citrus hammers

out another big victory


Have won three
games by 43 runs
By SCOWT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING The Hanock
Citrus express kept on rolling
Friday night.
After opening the season
with two wins by a combined
score of 40-9, Hancock extend-
ed its streak of domination with
a 14-2 win over Sertoma at
Max Long Recreational
Complex in a game that ended
after four innings due to both
the mercy rule and the 75-
minute time limit under the
rules of the league, which
switched from Dixie to ISA this
year.
Hancock actually trailed 1-0
against the young Sertoma team
after Megan Darr walked to
lead off the game and later


scored, but it didn't take long
for the home team to take the
lead. Winning pitcher Haley
Pack tied the game with a run-
scoring double in the bottom of
the first and a two-run double
from Brittany Whittington fol-
lowed by an RBI single by Erin
McGlinchy made it 4-1.
Sertoma starting pitcher
Katlyn Ostrander, who was
playing despite three fractured
ribs and a bruised sternum she
suffered in a collision in a trav-
el ball game, made it 4-2 in the
top of the third when she blast-
ed a triple to deep left field to
drive in Darr.
Hancock Citrus broke out the
long ball, too, in the bottom of
the inning to take control of the
game.
Lauren Welborn led off with
a single and Dino Lower drove
her in with a triple down the

Avon Park stays on

top of District 10-3A

with five-inning rout

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
FROSTPROOF The Red Devils
were ready this time around.
After rallying to beat Frit-,proo'f by only
onermun in Avon Park-6iN March 29, the
Red Devils turned up the heat on the road
Friday and run-ruled the Bulldogs 13-2 in
five innings.
"I don't want to take anything away
from Frostproof, because they played us
great that day. They did a good job. But we
took them lightly," Avon Park head coach
Mort Jackson said of the earlier matchup.
"It makes a difference when the kids come
to play, and they come prepared, and they
know that they have to play instead of
Avon Park coming to put their hat on
1 3 the field."
Avon Park (12-10, 8-2 in
the district) kept its hat in
Frostproof the ring for the No. 1 seed in
2 the upcoming District 10-3A
tournament at Lake Placid.
Since Hardee beat Mulberry
9-4 on Friday, both teams finished with
identical district records, and the clubs
will decide the top spot via tiebreakers.
With postseason positioning in mind,
the Devils took control with four runs in
the third inning Friday, and broke open a
5-2 game in the fifth with eight runs in
support of Michael Diaz (2-1), who struck
out nine in the complete-game, two-hit
victory.
"Mike's just a complete ballplayer,"
Jackson said. "When he pitches like that,
he's tough to beat."
Diaz also went 2-for-4 with four RBIs
at the plate, including a bases-clearing
double in the third, while Taiwan Perry
went 3-for-4 and added a lunging catch in
right field to end the Frostproof third.
"We're coming around," Jackson said.
"I said at the beginning this was going to

be a learning year, and at the end of the
year they'd be ready to go, and I think
they're ready. I think we've grown to the
point where they've grown up and they
know what it takes to win."
The Bulldogs (3-16, 0-12), conversely,
are learning through the school of hard
knocks. Yet head coach Pat Garrett is
.unbowed.
"We've had an opportunity to beat
everybody in the district," he said.
"Nobody in the in the district is a domi-
nant force that can just go out and beat
you."
Garrett is so enamored with the way his

See DEVILS, Page 3B


,team has battled that he said he admires
them even more than his 23-win 2000
team that was one run from the state final
four. He compares this year's Bulldogs to
a team a friend coached at Lakeland
Kathleen a few years ago that went win-
less in the regular season and won its dis-
-trict tournament.
"It's kind of eerie, the similarities," he

LAKE PLACID Delaney Fence
reclaimed the top spot in Lake Placid's
five-team Dixie Youth Majors league
with a 14-7 victory over Perry Ranch
Friday night at the Lake June Ball Fields.
In the other game on Field 1, Beef
O'Brady's had their two-game win
streak snapped when Lake Placid Marine
won 8-4 to notch their first win of the
season through the first five games.
Delaney Fence (4-1-1 overall)
bounced back from Tuesday night's 4-2
loss to Beef O'Brady's (2-3), taking a 3-
0 lead in the top of the first inning
against the Perry Ranch team. Benny
Aguilar and Joshua Montero walked and
David Bunton was hit by a pitch and big
Colby Delaney rifled a two-run double
to left field to put Delaney Fence on top
for good.

College Softball

Pasco win ends


SFCC's season
By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK It was out of their
hands, and it didn't turn out like they
hoped.
The South Florida Community College
Panthers needed Hillsborough to beat
Pasco-Hernando in the completion of a
suspended game on Saturday in order to
stay alive for a spot in the postseason.
Unfortunately, Pasco pulled out a 2-1 win,
knocking SFCC out of contention and
ending the Panthers' first-ever softball sea-
son.
Today's scheduled doubleheader
against St. Petersburg at Panther Field will
not be played, since it has no bearing on
the Suncoast Conference standings.
"By Pasco winning that put them at 12
(conference) wins and 12 losses, which
eliminates us because the best we could
have been was 11-13," SFCC coach Carlos
Falla said, adding that Pasco's win also
eliminated Polk from the playoffs. A
Hillsborough win and an SFCC sweep

Baseball third

undefeated JV

team for SHS
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING -- Florida
Marlins outfielder Miguel
Cabrera almost won the MVP
award in the 2002 All-Star
Weekend Futures game. He
went 2-for-2 in the World
Team's only win to date against
Team USA since the event's
inception in 1998.
One year later, he ripped a
rookie record four home runs
and 12 RBIs in the postseason
during the Marlins' champi-
onship run against the Yankees.
Just about everyone saw it
coming after his great cam-
paign in the minors, reinforcing
the fact that half the fun of suc-
cess is saying you were there
from the beginning.
Just as important as the end
result is the journey taken to
get there.
That applies in Sebring, too,
as varsity coaches will appar-
ently have a lot to look forward
to in the coming years after
watching three junior varsity
teams finish undefeated in
2005.
The baseball program
became the third last Friday
when Jim Ritter's squad com-
piled a 16-0-1 record, scoring
at least 10 runs in 11 of their 17
games.
Fitting, given that before the
start of the baseball season in
February, two JV sports pro-
grams at Sebring already had
undefeated seasons to their
names (girls basketball at 20-0
and boys football at 7-0).
It seems to be going around.
"They got better as the sea-
son went on," Ritter said. "I
don't think I've ever had a team

in the bottom of the first and scored on
Mark Greenauer's booming triple to the
gap in left-center field. Greenauer and
Dustin Whitmire, who doubled in the
fourth, were the only two Perry Ranch
hitters to have success against Delaney
starting right-hander Gio Rosario.
Delaney Fence, on the other hand,
continued to score runs on three Perry
Ranch pitchers. Greenauer came on in
relief to pitch a perfect fifth inning, but
the damage had already been done.
Rosario doubled with one out in the
second and scored on an error to raise
Delaney's lead to 4-1. Head coach Fred
Delaney's boys blew the game wide
open with a six-run third inning. Colby
Delaney ripped his second RBI double
of the game in the third to finish 2-for-2,
and Rosario (2-for-3) delivered a bases-
loaded triple to put his team up 10-1.
Delaney Fence tacked on four more

scored to raise the count to 14-1.
Perry Ranch rallied after Rosarioleft the
mound after two innings for Lazaro. Five
walks, two hit batsmen and a double by
Whitmire plated Myers, Greenauer, Lott,
Nathan Stanley and Bradley Perry to close
the deficit to 14-7.
Colby Delaney came on in relief to put
out the fire in the fourth, striking out the
cleanup hitter to end the rally. Delaney,
already having pitched a no-hitter this sea-
son, struck out two of the three batters he
faced in the fifth inning to end the game.

Lake Placid Marine got a superb pitch-
ing performance from Kirk Veley, played
solid defensively and blew the game wide
open in the top of the fourth inning with a
four-run rally.
The game was tied at 3-3 heading into
the fourth inning. Lake Placid Marine got
three bases on balls to set the table and left-
handed Tommy Bertoniere crushed a clutch
two-run single to the fence in right field to
put Lake Placid Marine up 7-3. Beef
O'Brady's came unglued defensively and
never was able to string together a rally
against Veley.
"I was a little nervous in the beginning of
the game, but then I just relied on my fast-
ball and it was working for me," Veley said
after the game. "It feels good to get our first
win of the season."
Veley went the distance for Lake Placid
Marine, giving up four runs on nine hits.
The right-hander also struck out nine bat-
ters and walked only three.

that finished like they finished.
Five games left in the season is
when they started to peak and
just carried on through the rest
of the season."
Ritter's team ended their
schedule with an emphatic 19-0
win over rival Avon Park, quite
a way to go out for the coach,
who said this would be his last
year spent in the dugout after a
pair of two-year terms 'at
Sebring.
"We were on the upswing
and they ran into us and our
guys we just ready to go,"
Ritter said about the meeting.
"You always want to beat Avon
Park, and you don't want to
beat somebody like that cause
they're a bunch of good kids on
that team, but we were just on
fire.
"I was really nervous for that
game. It just feels awful good it
being the last game that I'll ever
coach."
The closest the Streaks came
to a loss was when umpires
called a 4-4 tie against
Auburndale because of a time-
limit rule.
"Up until that point in the
season, we had not made multi-
ple errors in one inning and we
made five in one inning," Ritter
said. "Cory (Ritter) was pitch-
ing probably his best game of
the season and we made five
errors and it just happens. I
think there were several games
that we were just a little blas6
and that was one of them. We

'They got better

as the season

went on. I don't

think I've ever

had a team that

finished like

they finished.'
SHS coach JIM RITTER

just kind of fell asleep a little bit
for one inning, and it woke us
up the rest of the year, though."
Still, no one had an answer
for the Sebring. The Streaks
were outscoring their oppo-
nents at a furious pace, nearly
five-to-one, and pumping up
the team before the game
became useless.
"We built up a few games
before the season knowing
what teams were going to be
tough and the kids, they knew
when it was time to play ball
and we didn't have to get them
ready. They just took the field
and they played."
Most of the team had already
played under Ritter at one point
in their lives during Dixie
Youth years or AAU ball.
"I think playing with all
these kids all these years made
the job a little easier," Ritter
said. "Instead of teaching the
kids fundamentals we just sort
of tried to find the roles they
needed to play."
So, they came into the season


with a lot to look forward to and
left with a lot to look back on,
highlighted by the final game
against the Devils.
"Halfway through the season
I think pretty much we realized
they were a lot better than I
thought they would be as a
team." Ritter said.
Sebring collected 13 hits that
game, none more important
than Goins' first, an opposite
field grand slam about 330 feet
to essentially end the game in
the first inning.
"We started off with a triple
and when J.R. hit that thing, it
was over," Ritter said
Nick Maloyed then followed
with his second inside-the-park
home run of the year in the sec-
ond inning.
"Once a year you might see
that and he did it twice," Ritter
said. "That just shows what a
remarkable athlete he is. When
I saw the look on his face com-
ing around third, there was no
way I was going to hold him.
Either he was going to get
thrown out at home or he was
going to score."
. Ryan McClelland pitched
that game, tossing five score-
less innings and allowing only
two base runners to pick up the
win. That kind of pitching dom-
inance was everyday life for
Sebring, which allowed just
over two runs a game to lead
the county.
But the top seven batters will
be juniors and ineligible to play
JV ball next. year, meaning
whoever will at the helm of
next year's team will no doubt
have his work cut out for him.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Visually

enhanced
Recently I met a blind
woman at a writer's confer-
ence. Her enthusiasm, faith,
courage and accomplish-
ments along with her
delightful sense of humor -
assure me that her visual
impairment has not affected
her spiritual sight. She walks
in God's grace.
Meeting her reminded me
of a time about 20 years ago.
I was in church with my
family when suddenly my
vision changed.
I blinked and rubbed my
eyes. But, I could only see
bits and pieces of my pastor.
As he gestured with his arm,
I saw it disconnected from
his shoulder. To me, he
appeared disjointed.
I looked at my husband
and, to my dismay; I could
only see segments of his pre-
cious features. My vision
improved when we got
home, but I had a nasty
headache. After a short
sleep, everything was fine.
I've since learned that this
condition is an ocular
migraine and nothing to be
alarmed about. But, at the
time, it was most alarming.
It happens infrequently and,
after a brief nap, my normal
.sight returns.
However, what if you
aren't home and can't slip
under the covers to take a
nap? In glancing at my jour-
nal, I was reminded of just
such a time.
We had been practicing,
for months to present a con-
cert at our church along with
a book signing of my new
"Pause & Consider" book.
That night; we reluctantly
had to tell the audience that
due to an error in printing,
we didn't have books.
But, by God's grace, we
determined to praise him in
song and trust him with the
outcome of the delay. As we
sat waiting to be introduced,
an ocular migraine began.
"Oh no!" I said to Ken.
"What's the matter?" he
asked.
"I'm having one of those
episodes with my eyes."
Within seconds of that
statement, we approached
the platform and the first
song began. The program on
the music stand now
appeared in broken sections
before my eyes.
The audience was in
"pieces" along with my
singing partner. The special
lighting cast an even brighter
glow around the edges of.
this phenomenon of sight.
Every word spoken or sung
hung on a prayer for help.
As we went from one
song to another, the condi-
tion persisted and worsened
draining my physical and
emotional energy from me.
But, the Lord held me in
his everlasting arms and I
felt such a measure of com-
fort and peace that it helped
me persevere. My physical
sight was diminished, but my
spiritual sight was enhanced
as the verse came to mind,
"My grace is sufficient for
you, for my power is made
perfect in weakness." (2
Corinthians 12: 9, NIV)
About two-thirds into the
program, I felt the migraine
release and my normal
vision return. As I clung to
Christ's sufficiency, I had
experienced a new dimen-
sion of his grace.
Perhaps, because of this
experience, I can in some
miniscule way more aptly
appreciate my fellow
writer's rest in God's grace.
She most definitely is visual-
ly enhanced. Selah.

Back in the beginning
"Originally in 1974, the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office ran the ambulance
service. Their first vehicle was a Chevy
Suburban that an individual had renovated
in his back yard under an oak tree. A stick-
er on it proudly proclaimed, 'radio dis-
patched and oxygen equipped.' Back then,
the men served sheriff's summons and car-

tried a revolver, in addition to making med-
ical calls. At certain times of the night, the
hospital door was locked. However, these
EMTs had a key to enter, then called the
doctor and waited for his arrival," said
Byrd, who works at the EMS station in
Sebring.
Byrd said in 1975, the state dictated that
emergency transportation vehicles were
required to have a patient compartment of
specific size, with minimum equipment
and manned by personnel with a certain
training level. This made the program
more expensive, so EMS was transferred
from the sheriff's office to the county on
Oct. 1, 1975. More men were hired and
standards were raised.
"In the beginning, the philosophy was
strictly 'load and go.' Their first aid kit
was about the size of a shoebox, and the
old-timers joked that their decision-mak-
ing was confined to either large Band-Aid
or small Band-Aid. But it has always been
a physically demanding job picking up
heavy people," Still said.
According to Ward who works at the
EMS station in Sebring, after Sept. 11,
2001, EMTs are now trained for terrorist
possibilities. The same is true for haz-
ardous materials. They are prepared for
safety concerns and know how to protect
the public. They are alert to anything sus-
picious or unusual.
When the novel technology of cell
phones started, it helped and simultaneous
ly caused some difficulty.
"At the time there was a bumper sticker
that read, 'If in doubt, call 911.' Of course
people called in anything unusual, and
sometimes it was merely a person with a
flat on the side of the road," Culpepper
said.
Still said in the beginning there was
only basic life support. Then in 1984,
advanced life support was added, which
required paramedic training for a year. As
time and requirements progressed, more
money was needed. In 1985, EMTs asked
for donations from the community for

A look at


the men


behind


the scenes

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun w rrupundeInt
Ten men have been dedicat-
ed in ser\ ing Highlands Count>
Emergency Medical Services
for the past 30 years. Here is a
look at each of these indisidu-
als and their personal expen-
ences working in the line of
public service:

Lee Andrus
Lee Andrus. who works at
the Lake Placid station, origi-
nally worked 10 \ears for
Count> Road and Bridge
Department then transferred to
EMNIS.
"Each day is
different. You
never know
%hit it will
bring. Most of
our calls are
for an injury
from falling or
shortness of ANDRUS
breath (car-
diac. emphysema or lung prob-
lems). It's never bonng. I like
to come to %ork," Andrus said.
And he has the second most
accumulated sick leave of
4,400 hours to prove it. Andrus
believes he must provide the
best possible care on each and
every call, and was recently
awarded the 2004 Highlands
Heroes Award given by the
Nte s-Sun.
"'I'm a commercial fisher-
.man. (freshwater catfish and--
turtles)" Andrus said.
Married 33 years, he said
when he retires maybe he'd
like a booth in an antique mall.
"1 love to collect antiques. I
have antiques from my family,
flea markets, and yard sales.
But I ha'e to cut back when it
gets too cluttered or I hear it
from the complaint depart-
ment." Andrus said.
"The best part of the job is
being thanked for helping ..
Seven something small. Usually
People are so stressed during
the trauma that we never hear a
good vword,'" Andrus said. "But
it means so much when some-
one calls or stops by and sim-
ply says thanks."

Mickey Byrd
Mickey Byrd, who works at
the Sebring station, moved to
Highlands County at the age of
4. He started Feb. 3. 1974. with
EMS and worked the same
ambulance (A-2) for 25 years.
hMy ex-
brother-in-law
worked for
EMS and hied
with us then.
He vas one of
the originals,
the Dirty
Dozen (the 12 BYRD
who started in Dec. 31, 1972).
He'd come home and relate
details and it got my interest,"
Byrd said.
"I like contact with people
and love the interaction, trying
to help when people are hurt,
even to cheer them up 'and put
them at ease. Of course driving
fast with the sirens screaming
gets the adrenaline high. You
go to a scene and someone's
blood sugar is 30 and they're
not able to talk. You put in an
IV with a high concentrate of
sugar and in 10-15 minutes,
he's alert and talking. The fam-
ily thinks you're a miracle
worker because it's such a dra-
matic change," Byrd said.
'There are inherent dangers,
of course. But you minimize
them and put them in the back


of your mind. Afterward you
think, 'that was sort of hairy,'
although you were pumped at
the time. There's never any
rhyme or reason, just all of a
sudden, the bell goes off and it
gets real busy. When retired I'd
like to play tennis every day,
ride an ambulance and fish on

Volunteers come in every


shape, size and occupation a
Of .


One of those pleas-
ant surprises in life is
finding that last
year's flowers have
gone to seed and a
new generation is
blooming in the gar-
den. Those new vol-
unteer plants add
color without costing
me a cent or requiring
any work.
Farmers aren't
always too happy
about "volunteers"

LIBRARY LINES

appear here and there in a field
of barley or wheat, but flower
gardeners will nearly always
welcome surprises.
Volunteers are those who
give freely of their time and
energy. Many of our greatest
efforts have run on the backs of
those who wanted to be
involved. Civil War history
books record that men (and
boys) joined both sides to sup-
port what they believed in.
Read "The Army Memoirs of
Lucius W. Barber, Company
'D,' 15th Illinois Volunteer
Infantry," "The Citizen-sol-
dier," or "Memoirs of a
Volunteer."
President Theodore
Roosevelt's part in the Spanish-
American War of 1.898 is well
documented. That this war was
also fought by volunteers is
spelled out in two of many
titles: "Teddy Roosevelt at San
Juan" and "The Boys of '98:
Theodore Roosevelt and the
Rough Riders."
Every war has outstanding
leaders who are volunteers,
such as Claire Chennault. who,


after retiring from
the U.S. Army Air
Corps, volunteered
as an advisor to
Chiang Kai-Shek and
led both Chinese and
American air troops
against Japan during
World War II. Read
about his adventures
in "Claire Chennault:
Flying Tiger."
Volunteers have
always been the
backbone of those
community-based


organizations such as the Red
Cross, volunteer fire depart-
ments, and many church out-
reaches. Sometimes volunteers
didn't know they were going to
be involved, as in "Exit Row,"
the true story of an emergency
volunteer, a miraculous sur-
vivor and the crash of Flight
965.
Animal rescuers can tell
many stories that are wet and
wild, especially those in the
book "Rescuing Baby Whales,"
which documents volunteer
efforts to save beached whales.
Let's wade right in and find
out what you and I can do as
volunteers. Check out the book
"What Would We Do Without
You?," a guide to volunteer
activities for kids; or how about
"Golden Opportunities: A
Volunteer Guide for Americans
Over 50," "Volunteering: 101
Ways You Can Improve the
World and Your Life."
Browse through "When
Evening Comes: The Education
of a Hospice Volunteer,"
"Helping Hands: How Families
Can Reach Out to Their


Communities," "The Prison
Minister's Handbook:
Volunteer Ministry to the
Forgotten Christian" and
"Volunteer Vacations: Short-
Term Adveritures that Will
Benefit You and Others."
It's still true when you
want something done, ask a
busy person. Find out how they
do it in "How You Can Help:
An Easy Guide to Doing Good
Deeds In Your Everyday Life."
Now if you find yourself
heading up a committee or
group of volunteers, we have
help, too, with "The Volunteer
Management Handbook" and
"Volunteer Recruitment and
Membership Development
Book." There's food for
thought in "The Halo Effect:
How Volunteering Can Lead to
a More Fulfilling Life And a
Better Career."
One of our favorite stories is
"Aldo Ice Cream." Nine-year-
old Aldo discovers the pleasure
of doing volunteer work to help
the older citizens of his commu-
nity and the satisfaction of earn-
ing his first money on his own
for unselfish reasons.
Hats off to all our faithful,
diligent, and cheerful library
volunteers!

istrative secretary of the

Lake Placid Chamber to pick administrative professional of the year


LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid Chamber of Commerce
will honor administrative pro-
fessionals at its annual lunch-
eon and fashion show at noon
Wednesday at First Baptist
Church of Lake Placid.
The emcee will be Ruth
LaGrow.
Home and Office Essentials
is sponsoring the luncheon for


the third year in a row.
Owner Jeanne Fortier
thought office supplies and
administrative professionals
naturally went together when
she agreed to sponsor the lunch-
eon three years ago and at a
time when her business was
only a month old. She still
thinks that's true today.
"It's a great program,"


Fortier said. "We're happy to be
able to support it."
In fact, Fortier will be giving
the winner a special gift a new
office chair.
Prizes will also be distributed
to the runners-up.
The fashion show will fea-
ture apparel from Lake Placid
Feed and Western Wear, Loie's
Boutique and Tropical Island


Wear.
Each year candidates are
nominated by business people
- usually their employers. A
committee decides the finalists.
Luncheon tickets are $15 per
person and can be purchased at
the Lake Placid Chamber, 18 N.
Oak Ave. The public is wel-
come. For details, call 465-

thought


I Corinthians .:26-29. "For
Voi see Y'our calling.
Sa 'brethren, that not mnily wise
.. According to the flesh, not
:Gmany mighty, ,not many
noble, are called. But God
l -h as chosen the foolish things
------- of the world to put to shame-
the wise, and God has chosen
the weak things of the world to put to shame
the things which are miglity: 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 IInothing theIC things that are,
that no fles/i should glory in His presence."
Here if you notice. God's plan of Salvation
does not conform to the world's priorities. Our
salvation is more valuable than all t'e wealth
and success pursued by. the world. God uses
what is considered foolish in this world to
reveal His truth, so that He alone will receive
the glory. The last verse says, no fleshi should
glory in His presence. Be Encouraged!

Showy geraniums can be grown all year in South Central Florida


Geraniums are popular for
their wide range of brilliant
flower color and attractive
leaves. They can be grown as
bedding plants and in contain-
crs on decks and patios. in
hanging baskets or in window
boxes.
Here in South Central
Florida. geraniums will grow
year around if kept properly. I
have one that has been growing
in a pot on the front step IlrI
about two years.
There is great variation in the
leaves, flowers and growth
habits of geraniums. They vary
in height from 6 inches to sev-
eral feet, depending on the cul-
tivar and the care given to the
plants.
Geraniums need at least four
hours a day of direct sunlight in
order to flourish and flower


w ell. In hot areas, it may be best
to give the plants a few hours ot
shade midday.
You can plant geraniums out-
doors. Make sure to water them
abundantly and continue to
water regularly, allowing the
soil to dry out between water-
ing. Never let the plants to wilt
or the leaves will turn yellow
and drop off.
Keep water off the foliage
because moist foliage favors the
development of disease. Mulch
the bed to maintain moisture
levels and keep the soil cooler
in summer.
Soil for geraniums should be
well drained. Geraniums
respond well to fertilizer and
are stunted and yellowed if not
provided enough nitrogen.
Fertilize new flower beds with
one pound of 10-20-10 fertilizer


or the eqfuixvalent per
100 sqLuaic feet.
Geraniums usually
require additional
fertilizer during the
growing season
eery. lout to six
weeks.
Remove dead
flowers from the
plant to prolong
flowering. Pinch to
encourage well-
branched, full plants.
When growing
geraniums in con-
tainers, choose large
pots to hold enough

soil for a good root system, and.
to contain enough water to pre-
vent wilting. Repot into larger
containers if they grow so large
that they wilt frequently. Select
containers with adequate


drainage holes, plant
in a well-drained soil
imix and do not allow
pots to sit in water.
Common gerani-
ums are actually
members of the genus
Pelargonium, while
"true" geraniums
include native wild-
flowers and herba-
ceous perennials. Major
types of geraniums
grown by home garden-
ers are common garden
geraniums or zonal
geraniums.
These geraniums.


often have distinct leaf mark-
ings. There are fancy-leafed
selections with tri-colored
leaves, silver leaves and leaves
with white markings. Flower
colors are usually pink, red,

salmon or white. Connion and
zonal geraniums are either
seed-grown oi cutting-grown.
Geraniums from seed are
mainly available in single-flow-
ered form only. Flowers tend to
shatter, an advantage because
you don't need to pick off dead
blooms. The Multibloom series
flowers very early and has
deeply zoned leaves on all
plants. They produce up to 15
flower heads per plant at one
time, virtually hiding the
foliage, in vibrant colors of
pinks, reds, lavender and white.
Most geraniums root easily
from stem cuttings, and many
cultivars must be propagated
this way to maintain flower
and/or leaf color, shape, and
scent. Lollipop is orange.
Gypsy and Melody are pink.
Melody Red and Sincerely
Yours are red. Lucille is coral.
Lotus is white. Mrs. Hemy Cox
is a striking zonal geranium
with pink flowers that are
upstaged by the dramatic yel-
low, deep red and green varie-
gation of its leaves,
Ivy-leafed geraniums are
trailing in habit with ivy-like
leaves and are grown in hang-
ing basket, and window boxes.
Ivy geraniums should not be
treated the same as common
zonal geraniums. They prefer
moderate temperatures. When
the temperatures are above 85
degrees hang the plant in a loca-
tion that receives morning sun
and afternoon shade.
Scented-leafed geraniums are
prized for their aromatic leaves.
Most do not have showy flow-
ers. Scents include lemon, rose,


peppermint, nutmeg and others,
The leaves are used for pot-
pourris, preserves, desserts,
punches, vinegars, teas and
sachets. Some common scented
species are:
Rose geranium
(Pelargonium graveolens) has
hairy deep green leaves that are
divided and toothed, with a del-
icate spicy rose scent.
Lemon geranium (P.
crispum) grows to a height of 2
feet, with small, stiff, curly
leaves and lilac pink flowers. Its
fresh leaves give a pleasant
lemon fragrance.
Apple geranium (P. odor-
atissimum) has trailing stems
with small, soft, gray green
leaves with a sweet apple scent
and delicate white flowers.
Peppermint geranium (P.
tomentosum) has large heart
shaped wooly leaves with a
strong mint scent.
The mosquito geranium
smells like citron and is adver-
tised as a natural mosquito
repellent. This has not been
proven.

honors volunteers at appreciation banquet


AVON PARK Walker
Memorial Seventh-day
Adventist Church held a ban-
quet on April 17 for the 130
volunteers who prepare and
deliver meals to homebound
people each Wednesday.
Before the meal was served,
Ruby Ewing gave a short pro-
gram. Eben Aguirre, the
church's associate pastor, gave
the opening prayer and Ewing
read "Come Apart and Rest
Awhile" from the book "Desire
of Ages."
Hannah Eppel presented gifts
to Julianna Solace, 11, the
youngest volunteer, and Grace
Rutt, 99, the oldest volunteer.
Many of the 35-40 recipients
of the delivered meals have lit-
tle contact with the outside
world and look forward to
short visits from the person who
brings them a fresh, hot meal
each week.
The meal recipients also
receive a sermon tape, a church
bulletin, a lesson guide and a
prayer.
While the program is mainly
for the homebound, approxi-
mately 40 come to the fellow-
ship hall each week to eat there
and fellowship with friends.
Food is supplied and served
by church members with help
from Georgia Jones, director of
Walker Church Community
Service Center, and Joyce Pifer
of the church's parish nursing

Friends hold barbecue in Roebuck's memory


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID An April
16 barbecue at the Royal Palm
Bowling Center was exactly the
kind Hector Roebuck, 33,
would have loved.
He died last week in an elec-
trocution accident while cutting
trees in Lake Placid. The
Sebring man made so many
friends in his life that a barbe-
cue in his memory served more
than 100 people and raised as
much as $3,200 in donations.
"We was just very open and
very accepting of others despite
whatever faults they may have
had," said his sister, Sharon
Brown, of Lake Placid.
After their father died 20
years ago, Roebuck assumed


the role and looked after his
older sister, his mother Mirta,
and his younger twin brothers
Javitz and Klarence. He found
whatever ways he could to
make his mother happy. He
even walked his sister down the
aisle at her wedding 13 years
ago. When they cried, so did he.
"He was very empathetic,"
Brown said, adding, "He
always reached out to people.
It's very easy to forget our
friends. He sought people out."
The day was sad because he
wasn't there, Brown said, espe-
cially because it was the type of
event he would have attended.
Vicky Spires of Highlands
Independent Bank in Lake
Placid, had known Roebuck
since she was 3 and he was 1.


She said he was a listening per-
son. "He never had anything
bad to say about anyone."
Every volunteer wore a pho-
tograph of Roebuck, as provid-
ed by Tracy Royer, a family
friend. People donated time,
food or effort to make the bar-
becue a success. Among the
chefs were Spires' husband Jeff,
James Behrman, Joe Casanova,
Marc Cram, Wayne Epps, and
Dwight Keaton. The bowling
alley donated money and
allowed them to set up inside
the building, collect donations
and serve the bowlers.
Spires also acknowledged
Lupita Grocery, Pat's Barbecue,
Sysco Food Service Inc. for
sponsoring the event.

SCENES
Continued from 1C
weekends. I'd probably volun-
teer at a hospital and nursing
homes, and do some traveling.
But frankly, I can't imagine
being without my buddies. I
love the thrill and satisfaction
of this job. I've gained so much
more from this job and commu-
nity than I've ever given."

Paul Church
Paul Church, who works at
the Sebring station, was born
and raised in Avon Park. He
worked part time in high school
at Stephenson Funeral Home,
now known as Stephenson-
Nelson Funeral Home. "They
had a private ambulance and I
got a taste for it and decided I
could handle it," Church said.
S "After retire-
S ment I plan to
fish, spend
in time with my
family and con-
tinue involve-
ment with my
church. The
CHURCH reality is that I
may have to get part-time work
in order to have health insur-
ance covering my family,"
Church said.
"If it's a busy 24 hours, you
are fatigued and it takes a good
two days to recover. At one time

equipment, prompting busi-
nessmen and individuals to
open their wallets. The EMTs
had long since fulfilled their
end of the bargain. From 1975-
1985 they worked 48 hours on
and 48 hours off. In December
of that year however, extra
people were hired and working
hours changed to 24 hours on
and 48 hours off.

What the future holds
In the future, it seems every-
one will be busier and there
will be new challenges. There
will always be a need for more
training, necessitating time to
go back to classes, and they
will learn to do more for the
patient. The helicopter service
was added because at times it
is essential that a patient be-.
moved to a level-one trauma
center when transportation by
ambulance isn't quick enough,
said Williams, who works in
the EMS station in Sebring.
Because the Highlands
County population is mostly
retired individuals with a pro-
jection for even more growth
in the future, the EMS's needs
and demands will grow accord-
ingly.
"It's already obvious in the
overflow at doctors' offices
and emergency rooms.
Unfortunately that's where one
abuse occurs that arouses a
unanimous complaint. Some
people call 911 for minor prob-
lems, like a cold or flu. They
see it as a way to bypass the
waiting room. It doesn't work
like that. Emergency room
nurses prioritize needs when
EMTs bring in patients. There
are only seven EMS ambu-
lances in the county and they
handle 14,000 calls a year. In
the winter with seasonal visi-
tors, they are even stretched
thinner," Culpepper said.
"Abusing the system can make
a difference of critical EMS
response for someone with a


I did have a second job, because
with a family, sometimes you
have to bite the bullet. We've
learned the tricks of the trade
and it saves our backs. We've
probably all had injuries, but
I've avoided any serious ones,"
Church said..
"As for replacements, the
new paramedics are trained bet-
ter. We were guinea pigs in that
first class. There's better equip-
ment, training and personnel
now. The young ones have book
learning, and will gain experi-
ence in the field. But all us vet-
erans recognize signs and
symptoms and respond faster.
It's fun to team up with the
oldies," Church said.

Ray Culpepper
Ray Culpepper, who works at
the Sebring station, was born
and raised in Avon Park. He
started with EMS under the
sheriff's office Oct. 1, 1974.
S "I sort of
backed into it,
then realized I
enjoyed it. My
brother-in-law

"I like to help others. It's

true emergency. No one is sug-
gesting not calling, of course,
because no one can be sure
what could be serious. But'
when a crash occurs, there is
no question that time is criti-
cal."
Weigand said EMTs are
often required to wake from a
deep sleep, jump up, and
become quickly alert. Dealing
with critical situations is not
for everyone. When that bell
sounds, the EMT doesn't know
if it will be someone they
know and love, someone with
a mere cold, or a patient who
will die. Operators always try
to get them as much informa-
tion as possible before going to
a scene. Law enforcement and
firefighter reinforcements also
are a reassurance.
Today more documentation
and paperwork is required
because of government and
also potential liability suits.
Some EMTs have been shot at,
attacked with a knife, even
thrown out a window, and of
course they risk exposure to
disease. They're on their toes
in every situation. They face
real dangers like AIDS and
hepatitis. But they are always
mindful of blood and bodily
fluids and take extra precau-
tions by wearing gloves when
on the scene. The worst fear is
taking something home to their
family, said Ezell, who works
at the EMS station in Avon


intriguing, even if it's a bad
scene. And in the end you know
you did everything you could to
help and that's a lot of fulfill-
ment," Culpepper said.
He feels the new job slots
will create a little gap, but new
blood is always beneficial. Plus,
in Highlands County there's a
large core group ready to fill
these vacancies.
"When I come off duty at 7
a.m., I wind down and go four-
wheeling in my Jeep in the
woods. Around the house I have
work to do, and I'm active in
the First Christian Church in
Avon Park. About eight years
ago I quit my part-time job, to
better relax and recuperate on
my days off. I feel like I'm paid
to be here 24 hours. And what-
ever comes up, I want to do my
best," Culpepper said.

Eddie Ezell
Eddie Ezell, who works at
the Avon Park station, was born
and raised in Avon Park and
went to South
Florida
Community
College on a
baseball schol-
arship. He
started March
S 1, 1975, and

hours in sick leave (the most)
accumulated.

Park.
Church said the recent Terri
Schiavo case made people
aware of the need for a living
will. EMS only honors do not
resuscitate orders. Usually the
terminally ill have it hanging
over their bed at home. If not,
and the patient's terminal, they
ask the family or friend. The
EMT's job is to save lives and
they automatically work the
first round of drugs and
attempt resuscitation. If the
patient doesn't respond, the
emergency room doctor advis-
es them, checking the patient's
records before proceeding with
the next step in protocol.
Future trends say EMS will
be more like a traveling clinic.
Already there are improved
monitors for cardiac resuscita-
tion with a 12-lead EKG rather
than the present 3-lead EKG.
There also will be thrombolitic
therapy for heart attacks, said
Rihner, who works at the EMS
station in Avon Park.
To a. man, their satisfaction
is derived from making a dif-
ference in a situation. Maybe
not saving a life, but in the
case of cardiac arrest, for
example, intervening with a
procedure that prevents a situa-
tion from quickly becoming
critical, They all admit they
like the adrenaline rush ... the
constant and changing experi-
ences, but most of all, they're
dedicated to helping people.

the family and I missed a day,"
Ezell said. "They know if I
don't show up, I am really
sick."
To unwind on his days off, he
has a lawn cutting service.
"Some people can sleep easily,
but I can't ... so I cut yards.
Getting hot and tired at the end
of the day takes care of any
built-up tensions for me," Ezell
said.
"My oldest son graduated
college and is married, but my,
youngest is still in college. I'd
like to stay on a little longer,
then go bass fishing," Ezell
said.

Mike Rihner'
Mike Rihner, who works at
the Avon Park station, was born
in Avon Park. He worked with
County Road and Bridge then
transferred to EMS in 1982.
"We have
good young
ones coming
up. They're
terrific. They
use common
/ sense, and
that's the most
RIHNER important thing
... especially dealing with the
basics. We've dealt with the
speed and quantity of changes
in servicing a patient, but paper-
work and reports sometimes
don't get done until the evening
if we're especially busy. I'm
more careful now than I was in
my 20s, grabbing and snatching
things up because I was strong.
We have men my age who can
still bench press 300 pounds,
but I often hear them grunting.
It affects you over time and you
start feeling it," Rihner said.

Franklin Still
Franklin Still, who works at
the Lake Placid station, is origi-
nally from Alabama. He
received his electrical degree
and went to Atlanta, but got
tired of the wall-to-wall con-
crete. ,

helping people. In the back of
the ambulance unit we can do
what they do in the hospital.
Some hate change, but they've
all been good. Originally we
had to do mouth-to-mouth. But
the EOA (esophageal obturator
airway), which breathes for
them, was a major step for-
ward," Still said.
"I'm quiet," Still said in his
southern Alabama accent.
"When I'm on the radio, people
always kid me and my drawl.
But that's me."

Jimmy Ward
Jimmy Ward, who works at
the Sebring station, moved from
Tennessee to Sebring in the
third grade. He will have 29
years of service this May. Ward
completed the first paramedic
program.
"I see that

But if there's a wreck, and
whenever the Jaws of Life
needs to be used, I personally
respond. If it sounds bad, extra
hands are always needed to

always there to coordinate with
the fire department," Ward said.
"This job has lots of stress
and time away from your fami-

Ward said.

new equipment, even updating

now, a difference in whether
people live or die.
"In the beginning, we only
had bandages, splints and oxy-
gen to offer. But I've always
tried to be sure everything is
done right. This job is especial-
ly upsetting when babies are
hurt or if you know the people
involved. Having lived here this
long, that happens," Ward said.

the Sebring station, was born
and raised in Sebring. He grad-
uated high school and joined
EMS June 1976, starting as an
EMT then a paramedic, shift
supervisor, and was promoted
to director in July 1985.
"Cardiac
and auto acci-
dents are the
S number one
calls. You see
bad things, the
worst situa-
nWEI yAND tions. You have
to be physical-
ly and mentally capable of han-
dling the extremes. People find
out quickly if they are not cut
out for this. Dealing with criti-
cal situations is not for every-
one. If you have a family, it is
especially rough missing a
baseball game or holiday, but
the job is 24/7 and 365 days a
year. So people have to adapt,"
Weigand said.
"I like the camaraderie. I like
these characters. They have to
be diverse to deal with each dif-
ferent situation. I knew Ray
Culpepper from high school. To
me he was an experienced vet-
eran who taught me the ropes
and made things easier,"
Weigand said.

Ray Williams
Ray Williams, who works at
the Sebring station, was born
and raised in Sebring. October
2004 marked his 30 years with
EMS and he will retire this
April. He has a lawn mainte-
nance service to run, and some
property in Georgia he'd like to
develop. He's also a big
NASCAR fan and wants to
catch some races.
"It's funny,
but as a kid I
Swas scared of
a fire trucks and
n uI emergency
vehicles. EMS
\ used to be just

rWELIAMS first aid. I
WILLIAMS enjoy ALS
because that care really makes a
difference. All these new meth-
ods accomplish a higher level
of treatment and make a differ-
ence in saving lives. Sure there
are times of stress and frustra-
tion, but I like the camaraderie
of all the people at work. My
first partner was Rick Weigand.
I know I'll miss the crews and
the office people," Williams
said.
