SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners tabled
a request Tuesday to rezone
property in Lake Placid
because no one was there.
When county commission-
ers opened the hearing
Tuesday, neither the applicant
- Randy Herscovici nor
any of the residents were on
hand to make any statements
for or against rezoning -the
mobile home park for condo-
miniums.
Without people to present
the case, county commission-
ers tabled the matter indefi-
nitely until county attorney
Ross Macbeth learns what the
county can do and what the
applicant must do.

plans to rezone the park,
remove the mobile homes and
build' single family homes.
The site is 2.65 acres on
County Road 17, just across
the lake from Lake June
Road.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
developer was required to
give a six-month notice of
eviction to the residents, but
has not done this. By law, no
local agency or government
may approve rezoning that
would move people out of
mobile homes without first
making sure that other mobile

Recommendations on financ-
ing for the new sports com-
plex on Highlands Avenue
will go before the Highlands
County commission Tuesday.
A five-field adult softball
complex has been a priority
for the county's parks and
recreation department, and
recommended by the
Recreation and Parks
Advisory Committee. Two
weeks ago, acting on a
request from RPAC, Parks
and Recreation Director Vicki
Pontius cut the scope of the


home sites are available.
A study submitted by the
applicant states that there are
spaces available, Polatty said,
but most new parks won't
take old mobile homes. The
trailers in Viking Village are
old enough that movers don't
want to touch them, afraid
they will fall apart, he said.
The applicant stated that
Florida statutes had been
obeyed, but Polatty does not
have documented proof- of
this.
Comments
Commission Bob Bullard,
of Lake Placid, said he could-
n't approve a rezoning based
only on the word of an appli-
cant that the statutes were
met.
"We have to base these
(decisions) on findings of
fact," Bullard said. "The law
requires that we ascertain that
the notices were sent. The
burden of proof is on the
applicant."
Bullard said condomini-
ums would upgrade the prop-
erty, but the average age of
the mobile homes is such that
they can't relocate.
There must be a procedure
in law for relocating people in
older, "unmovable" mobile
homes. The law doesn't say
there must be spaces for
mobile homes, he said, but for

plan to get building costs
under $3 million.
By postponing some items,
such as playgrounds, batting
cages and lighting over the
added football fields, and by
using county crews and staff,
she got the cost down to $2.7
million.
She is proposing having the
county get that project and the
$1.2 million Windy Point
Park project under the same
loan, along with $600,000 in
grants.
Combined, the two projects
will cost the county $3.3 mil-
lion.

SEBRING The Lake
Placid business community is
holding, its head high these
days.
That's because two of its
own walked off with the two
awards given out at Tuesday's
kick-off breakfast for Business
Development Week, at Inn on
the Lakes and sponsored by the
Highlands Colunty Economic
Development Commission.
The traditional "Small

given by the EDC to a business
in operation for more than three
years and which exhibits
"exceptional community


involvement." This year's
award went to Lake Placid Feed
& Western Wear. Nancy Davis
accepted the award, given out
by EDC board member John
Harding, who also is the presi-
dent of Florida Hospital
Heartland.
In his remarks, Harding said
the owners "are a vital part of
the community." Members of
First Presbyterian Church of
Lake Placid, also are active in
the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce and the Lake Placid
Merchants Association.
And, Harding added, they
"are described as honest, kind,
hard-working people who treat
everyone fairly. What higher
praise could one ever want to
receive?

Americorps

volunteers

repair

hurricane

damage

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK For almost
two weeks a team of
Americorps volunteers has
been working to repair hurri-
cane damaged homes.
The 10-person team arrived
in town April 14 and has been
busy ever since replacing roof-
ing, working with Rebuilding
Together Highlands County.
Rebuilding Together volun-
teers help repair existing homes
for owners who are too poor to
do so, or are disabled.
Grateful residents threw a
welcome pot luck supper for the
Americorps volunteers at Lake
Denton Camp the.day after their
arrival, which was attended by
Avon Park Mayor Tom
Macklin, and County
Commissioners Barbara
Stewart and Earl Stokes.
The atmosphere at the newly
refurbished camp was warm
and joyful.
"Paul,. we salute you for
bringing them here," Stokes
said, after thanking the volun-
teers for their dedication.
"None of us is a one man
show," Paul Devlin, president
of Rebuilding Together, replied.
"It's just a wonderful night."
The team's members come
from all over the United States,
none is a Florida resident, and
one is visiting the state for the
first time.
Of the 10, three have just
graduated from high school, six
are college graduates and one is
taking a sabbatical from her
studies.
Americorps is a network of
service programs, some nation-
al, some local, which engage
more than 50,000 volunteers to
work with more than 2,100
public, private, and faith-based


Attendees are encouraged to
bring their own wine, beer, pic-
nic food or barbecue. The idea
is to relax under the stars, cook
out, and watch a'classic film
with friends and like-minded
young professionals.
Young Professionals member
Lynne Flannery set up the
arrangements with state park
officials. Few groups have had
such an event. Reportedly, Park
Manager Pete Anderson said he
would like to come, sit down
and see how such an event is
done. The park has wanted to
do something similar, but has
never gotten around to it.
Young Professionals member


Sarah Hopton said that once
people are in, they would need
to stay in since the park gate
closes on the way out.
As for the question of alco-
holic beverages and food,
Hopton said Young
Professionals was able to bring
its own, because this was not
being done near the Friendship
Lodge, the site of a regular fish
fry on Friday nights. The meet-
ing hall will offer shelter, air-
conditioning and a kitchen
facility.
Young Professionals is
directed at people 21-35 -
young professionals who have
solidified their career choices,

agencies throughout the coun-
try.
Designed with three branch-
es, Americorps provides
trained, dedicated people to
help non-profits accomplish
their goals.
The first branch is
Americorps State and National,
which grants funds to governor-
appointed state commissions,
which in turn, grant funds to
local nonprofits and agencies.
Of its budget, three quarters go
to the state commissions, the
remainder to national agencies,
for example, Habitat for
Humanity ahd the Boys and
Girls Clubs, which operate in
more than one state.
The second branch is
Americorps Vista, which has
been in existence for more than
40 years. Vista volunteers serve
a full year and live in the com-
munity they serve; in fiscal
2001, approximately 6,000
served in 1,200 programs
throughout the country.
The third branch, Americorps
National Civilian Community
Corps (NCCC), is a full time,
10 month program in which
teams of volunteers, based at a
regional campus, go out into
neighborhoods on six-week
project tours. The Retired
Senior Volunteer Program is
also a part of this branch.
The team working here is
part of the southeast region of


the National Civilian
Community Corps.
Headquartered in Charleston,
S.C., the members have tutored
in after-school programs in
Mississippi and Tennessee; they
will be here for another four
weeks, then return to South
Carolina where they will help
clear brush at a state park, and
set up the camping areas.
Americorps is open to all
U.S. citizens, nationals, or law-
ful permanent residents aged 17
or older (NCCC volunteers
have to be between 18 and, 24).
Members serve full or part time
for 10- or 12-month terms, and
receive a small cost-of-living
stipend.
Those volunteers who com-
plete a term of service receive
an education award, currently
set at $4,725 for. a year of full
time service rewards are pro-
portionally lessened for part
time service. An individual has
seven years in which to claim
the reward.

even if they are still working
toward those goals. Young
Professionals can then help
them refine those choices and
make time for strong friend and
family connections.
The group will have social
events and professional semi-
nars throughout the year.
Seminars will include such top-
ics as financial planning, well-
ness, spirituality, and balancing
work with relationship or fami-
ly time. Social events will
include regular barbecues,
group theater or sports event
trips and even an annual nature


event with .camping, rafting,

Canadian dies in Sunday crash


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK An Ontario,
Canada, man reportedly had a
heart attack before losing con-
trol of his motor home and
rolling it on U.S. 27 shortly
after 3 p.m. last Sunday.
Avon Park Police Chief
Frank Mercurio said the camper
was northbound on U.S. 27
when it went out of control,
drove up on. the curbing and
overturned near the intersection
of Hal McRae Boulevard.
The driver has been identi-
fied as 58-year-old Steven John
Balazs of Windsor, Ontario.
"He was in medical distress.
at the time and he expired
because of coronary problems,
so it is not considered a traffic.
fatality," Mercurio said.
Injured in the mishap was


Linda Balazs. The woman told
police she saw her husband
slump over the steering wheel.
Reportedly, she tried to take
over and drive the vehicle but
was not successful.
"His wife was in the motor
home with him. Evidently he
lost consciousness and she tried
to take control of the motor
home," Mercurio said.
Both the 40-foot Monaco
motor home and a 2004 Jeep
the couple had in tow were
heavily damaged in the crash.
She was taken to Tampa
General Hospital where she
was listed in stable.condition.
It is unclear whether Balazs
and his wife were local winter
residents or were simply pass-
ing through the area when the
incident occurred.

Capalbo glad to be home


News-Sun
SEBRING Myrna Sonia
Capalbo, 41, is glad to be home
from the hospital, but she may,
have to return soon.
When her car was hit and
rolled at 10 a.m. April 21, at the
intersection of Sebring
Parkway and Scenic Highway,
both air bags went off and her
seatbelt held her. She still
received injuries that kept her at
Florida Hospital in Sebring
until 1 p.m. April 25.


Capalbo had 70 stitches in
her head and face, a shattered
tibia and a broken. ankle, and
other internal injuries, she said
Monday. She will have to return
within two weeks for recon-.
structive surgery.

The other driver, Margot,
Wellsted Kolke, 85, was report-
edly .treated and released the
same day as the wreck. She was
cited with violation of the right
of way.

for a golf tournament and according to Nu-Hope's Executive Director Sandy Foster, they were able
to raise an additional $860 by selling tickets for it. Nu-Hope provides a variety of services for
needy elderly residents in Highlands County.



Heacock Insurance Group



mourns over loss of owner


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Ford
Walker Heacock Jr.,
76, a local pioneer
and former owner and chief
financial officer of Heacock
Insurance Group in Sebring,
died April 25, 2005, in
Lakeland.
Born Aug. 9, 1928, in
Sebring, Heacock graduated
from Sebring High School in
1946.
He enlisted in the United
States Army Air Corps from
1946-48, rising to the rank of
master sergeant.
Following his military serv-
ice, Heacock returned to
Florida and enrolled at the
- University of Florida,
Gainesville. He graduated with
honors with a bachelor of arts
degree in business administra-
tion.
He graduated with honors in
just three years and was a mem-
ber of Beta Cappa Sigma frater-
nity.
Following a brief stint with
American Telephone and
Telegraph, Heacock joined the
family insurance company as
part-owner with his father.
Established in 1922,
Heacock Insurance was estab-
lished by Austin Heacock short-
ly after he relocated his family
in Sebring from Alliance, Ohio.
It was in 1963 that Sebring
Mayor George Hensley joined.
the organization. The company
was incorporated in 1966 and
that is when Hensley bought out
the elder Heacock becoming
co-owners with Ford Heacock
Jr.
"We represented a lot of dif-
ferent companies over the
years," Hensley said. "But
we've been in the property,
casualty and life business for all
its 83 years."
He credited a good mix of
personalities for the firm's
steady growth in the communi-
ty. -
"He (Ford Heacock Jr.) was
the financial guru," Hensley
said. "We always used to kid
because he would do every-
thing with a No. 2 lead pencil
even into the days of com-
puters."
Hensley said it was Heacock
who would get the final word at
board meetings.
"After we'd debate the issue
at hand we'd say 'Ford, what do
you think?' and he'd tell us


what we needed to do," he said.
Like his father and his grand-
father before him, Heacock not
only thrived in the insurance
trade, but was active in the Boy
Scouts of America and the
Sebring Rotary Club, where he
was a Paul Harris Fellow.
He worked for decades with
the Gulf Ridge Council of the
Boy Scouts where he was dis-
trict chairman and vice presi-
dent. Heacock was a member of
the National Council and was
presented the District Award of
Merit.
H e
received the
Silver Beaver,
which is the
highest award
given to adults
in scouting.
The council
HEACOCK also bestowed
a 'Distinguished Citizen' award
on him in 1997 for his work in
the scout's sustained member-
ship drive," Hensley said.
"Both he and his dad were
active' in scouting. It was a pri-
mary focus in their interest in
developing character in youth.
They felt that scouting was the
way to do that."
Again like his father, the
younger Heacock was a mem-
ber of the Sebring Firemen Inc.
and served as administrative
secretary for the 12 Hours of
Sebring from 1958-1964 and
was co-chairman of the 12
Hours in 1966.
His dad was heavily involved
in the development of the sports
car endurance classic and also
had served as chairman of the
event for several years.
Heacock also was a member
of the board of directors on the
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
Heacock did his share of
community service,. including a
term on the Sebring City
Council.
"He served in 1957-58 and
actually was the first member of
the council to have been born in
Sebring," Hensley said.
In addition to being an insur-
ance giant of the area, Heacock
was a member of the board of
directors of the First National
Bank of Sebring. That later
merged with the First Union
Bank.
Known as a man of few
words, Hensley said little but
rather was a man of action.
"During the gas crisis back in


the 1970s he started riding his
horse to work," Hensley said. "I
think he made it in the paper for
that."
Although he didn't speak
much on some topics, Hensley
said conversely he could have
quite a lot to discuss on topics
in which he was interested -
especially finance.
"The girls used to say that if
you wanted to leave. by 5
o'clock, you better not ask Ford
Jr. to explain anything after 3
p.m.," he said.
In his later years, Heacock
was a consultant to the Board of
Highlands County
Commissioners on its property
and casualty insurance as well
as an actuarial advisor on the
employee benefit plans.
In the mold of his father and
grandfather, Ford Heacock Jr.
was an avid hunter, fisherman
and outdoorsman.
It was Austin and Zua
Heacock who played key roles
during the 1920s in the estab-
lishment of the First United
Methodist Church where both
Ford Heacock Sr. and Ford
Heacock Jr. were lifelong mem-
bers. And it is there that servic-
es will be held for him.
Ford Heacock Jr. is survived
by his wife, Benni of Sebring;
children, Ford W. III of
Lakeland, and Austin M., Mary
Beth, Jason G., and Kimberly,
all of Sebring; brother, Travis of
Sebring; sister, Nancy Hensley,
of Sebring, grandchildren,
Stacey P., Ford W. IV, Justin R.,
Sara E., Shannon L. Smith and
Benjamin H.; and great-grand-

Larry Turner, Sr.
April 28, 1945 October 5,2004
He wasn't a hero
Known by the world
But a hero he was
To his little girl.
My daddy was God
Who knew all things
And better than Santa
With the gifts he'd bring.
I knew his voice
Before I could speak
And loved it when
He would sing me to sleep.
He changed my diapers
And sat up all night
When my body was weak
And I'd put up a fight.
He taught us life's lessons
Of right from wrong
And instilled in us values
That we might be strong.
And so through the years
Like a hero he stood
Working to give
All that he could.
His presence was important
And we loved to see him smile
For no one in the world
Could emulate his style.
And so dear Dad
My best memory to recall
Is the gift of your presence
The greatest gift of all.
Mary West-


SI miss you and love you i
so much, daddy.
Your baby girl,

SEBRING Once again,
riders who want to help the
handicapped can hop in the sad-
dle.
On Saturday, May 7, the
Florida Cracker Trail
Association and the Putnarn
Ranch will host the third annual
Spring Ride-A-Thon. The horse
riding and weekend camping
event raises funds for the
Heartland Horses and
Handicapped program.
This year, Horses and
Handicapped is raising money
to help complete a new facility
on College Drive, behind South
Florida Community College in
Avon Park, and pay for the care
of the horses in the program.
Julie Hinote with the Florida
Cracker Trail Association said,
as in the past, it's a bring-your-
own-horse event, always held
on the first full weekend in
May. In its first year, the ride
raised $7,000, Hinote said. Last
year, it raised $10,000, with no
out-of-pocket expenses. All of
the funds went to the program.
Word of mouth may make
this year even more successful,


Hinote predicted.
Riding packets are available
at area feed stores, including
event sponsors Glisson Animal
Supply, Hardee Ranch Supply
and Lake Placid Feed &
Western Wear. They may also
be downloaded from
http://wwi.crackertrail.org or
requested by calling 655-0553.
A $45 fee covers registration,
then the riders are asked to go
out and get sponsors. All horses
will have to have a negative
Coggins test for Equine
Infectious Anemia.
A few riders are coming inat
2 p.m. Friday, May 6, to camp
overnight at the Putnam Ranch,
once known as the Old El
Claire Ranch, at 8290 Martin
Lane in Zolfo Springs. The
ranch owners will feed them
that night.
For the main ride, riders will
gather at 10 a.m. the next day at
the ranch. Riders will lunch on
their own, then a three-hour
guided ride will begin at 1 p.m.
There's a lot of nice land-
scape for people to ride, Hinote
said.
Heartland Horses and


Handicapped will handle dinner
on Saturday night; Country beef
stew, cornbread, salad, white
bread and dessert. Awards will
be made that night for the junior
and senior rider, based on
pledges collected and turned in
at the time of registration.
All checks must be payable
to Heartland Horses and
Handicapped. Pledges must be
collected and delivered by May
30.
Dinner will include door
prizes and an auction for flags
'to be flown at the White House.
Hinote expects those flags to
be popular. Similar auctions
have brought as much as $350-
$400 for the flags. The buyer
can request a flag be flown over
the White House on a certain
day in honor of an occasion or
person. After the flag flies, the
owner will receive it along with
a certificate authenticating that
it flew on the requested day.
After dinner, the Green River
Band, of Okeechobee, will play
for a dance. The group is volun-
teering its services for the night.
To get to the ranch from the
south end of the county, take
State Road 66 to Parnell Road,
head north for three miles and
turn left on Martin Lane. From
the north, take State Road 64 to
Parnell Road, head south for six
miles and turn right on Martin
Lane.

New group forms for people


with head and neck injuries


First meeting will be
Monday, May 16, at
Lake Placid Health
Care Center
By BARRY FOSTER-
News-Sun
SEBRING Most people
know Deanna Piretti as the
originator and the driving force
behind the Handicapped
Americans Love of Life
Organization.
- Now, she"'s involved in start-
ing a new program for people
with head, neck and spinal cord
injuries.
"We're doing this in affilia-
tion with Marjorie O'Meara.
She's works with* Social
Services at the Lake Placid
Health Care Center," Piretti
said.
Piretti said O'Meara has
been spearheading the effort
locally.
"I told her that HALLO is
looking for more educational
groups to start," Piretti said.
O'Meara said the new group
will provide people who have
suffered those kinds of injuries
with an opportunity to meet,
socialize and learn.
"The plan is to give them an
opportunity to meet with their
peers and provide some activi-
ties and give them information
that will help them to better
cope with what they're going
through," she said.
That information, including
data on new adaptive devices,
would also be available to care-
givers.
"We want to help people
improve their quality of life and
help them manage their disabil-
ities," she said.
The abundance of traffic


accidents and other mishaps led
O'Meara to the notion that there
would be numerous individuals
who would be interested in such
a program. Piretti said she too
knows some people who could
benefit from it.
"I think they could benefit
not only from the art activity
but to socialize with people in
the same situation," she said.
"The need is already here. This
is a chance for us to provide a
service in that regard."
The first meeting is. sched-
uled for-Monday, May 16, in
the conference room of the
Lake Placid Health Care
Center.
"We're going to do it in the
evening because we want the
caregivers to come," Piretti
said. "If we have a big enough
turnout, we'll move it to the
dining room."
Both Piretti and O'Meara,
have been trying to contact peo-
ple who would be interested in
the program, especially the
young.
"I know of a couple of people
whose children were involved
in such. accidents, and there
really hasn't been anything in
the community," O'Meara said.
"To go through a head injury
and have the trauma of being
different from your peers is a
tremendously difficult thing."
The first session will be
largely organizational.
O'Meara said her goal is to try
to ascertain who wants the pro-
gram and how it fits with what
can be provided.
"Basically, we're going to
throw some questions out there
and ask them what their needs
are and what they want from
us," O'Meara said.


Later on, she said they hoped
to have a separate group where
they could provide information,
support and resources to care-
givers.
Much of the information will
come from the Christopher
Reeves Foundation.
"We can do that while those
with head and spinal cord
injuries have a chance to inter-
act and socialize," O'Meara
said. "We'd like to have some
parties and other activities that
would help them enjoy them-
selves."

Special to the News-Sun
The National Association of

the Avon Park and Sebring Post
Offices, will be collecting
canned goods and other non-
perishable foods (soups, rice,
cereals, juice, etc.) on Saturday,
May 14.


Last year's food drive
brought in an estimated 60,000
pounds of food in Sebring,
Avon Park and the surrounding
areas. And nationwide a record
70.9 million pounds of food
went to feed the hungry because
of this one-dj\ e' ent. Since the
"Stamp Out Hunger" f-ood dn\ e

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Redlands
Christian Migrant Association,
which provides education and
child-development services to
6,000 children of farm workers
and rural, low-income families
throughout Florida, recently
honored 90 employees who
obtained professional creden-
tials and college degrees.
"Because so many of our
teachers and staff members
themselves are former farm
workers, their, commitment to
RCMA's mission is uncondi-
tional," RCMA Executive
Director Barbara Mainster said.
"Their dedication to the chil-
dren is reflected in their hard


work not only at RCMA but
after hours in pursuing these
professional development cre-
dentials and college degrees."
Mainster noted that 76 per-
cent of RCMA's centers are
accredited by the National
Association for the Education
of Young Children. "Meeting
high national standards is possi-
ble because we have dedicated
staff who go the extra mile
every day," Mainster said.
Among those honored at the
recognition ceremony at
Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring
were:
52 teachers who received
their national child develop-
ment associate credential.


Friends open account


to help fire victim


News-Sun
Friends and co-workers of
James Blankenship have
opened a bank account to help
the Sebring man get back on his
feet after his Lagoon Lane
mobile home was destroyed by
fire late Friday night.
Reportedly Blankenship was
at a meeting at the time of the
blaze and had been doing
extensive renovation to the
mobile home and surrounding
grounds.
Fire marshal Michael
Douglas said his preliminary
investigation indicated the
blaze was electrical in origin.
The mobile home was declared
a total loss.
Owners of JLJ Drywall,
where Blankenship is a finisher,
have established a fund to help
him get back on his feet.
"He lost everything, so he
needs clothing, furnishings but
most of all he needs a place to
live," said Theresa Jordan, vice
president of the firm.

The account has been set up
at Highlands Independent Bank
under Blankenship's name.
Those who wish to offer other
kinds of assistance may call
214-5838.


24 staff members who
received their family develop-
ment credential.
Two employees who
received their infant/toddler
development certification.
Seven employees who
received their associate
degrees.
Two employees who
received their bachelor of arts
degrees.
Three employees who
received their master's degree
"RCMA is very proud of our
staff, their special talents and
uniqueness," Mainster said.
"RCMA is privileged to have
these 90 professionals and
many others like them working
with our children and families."
Founded 40 years ago in the
Miami-Dade County farming
area known as the Redland,
RCMA is a non-profit, non-sec-
tarian organization funded by
local, state and federal grants,
as well as the generosity of
businesses and individuals.
Although RCMA serves more
than 6,000 children in 20
Florida counties, another 2,000
children are on waiting lists.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Ina Perry (right), who built the Highlands Village assisted living center in Sebring and still keeps
it close to her heart, donated an electric piano for the resident's pleasure. Sean Fielder, at the key-
board and the owner of Music Makers, was an equal partner in the gift. Not only did he deliver
the piano Thursday night, he stayed and played while residents like Laverne Seaman danced.

AWARDS
Continued from 1A
Start-Up award
This also was the first time
the EDC presented an award for
the "Start-Up Business of the
Year."
Harding said the EDC "want-
ed to recognize new businesses
that have demonstrated innova-
tive ideas, outstanding service
and community involvement."
Companies less than three years
old can be nominated for the
award.
Accepting the "Start-Up"
award were Jeanne and Mark
Fortier of Home and Office
Essentials in Lake Placid.
Harding said this business
received "an impressive seven
nominations" that contained
such words of praise as "great
personal service, community
leader, and you always experi-
ence a good feeling when you
enter the store."
Like Karl and Nancy Davis,
the Fortiers are members of
First Presbyterian Church of
Lake Placid, Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce and the
Lake Placid Merchants
Association. And, Harding
added, "This will be the third
year they have sponsored the
Lake Placid Administrative
Luncheon."
The two keynote speakers at
- the breakfast, introduced by
* Louise England, EDC execu-
tive director, were Melvin
Philpot and Maxwell Wright,
- both senior energy efficiency
program specialists for
Progress Energy. The two spoke
on how energy efficient pro-
grams can help businesses
- increase their profits.
At the end of the program,
John Shoop, EDC vice chair-
S man and president of Highlands
Independent Bank, presented
retiring board member and local
businessman Ed Vowels with a

plaque honoring his years of
service.
Welcoming the attendees to
the breakfast was Wade
Taveniere, EDC past president,


with Eileen May, executive
director, of the .Greater Lake
Placid Chamber of Commerce,
offering the invocation and the
Pledge of Allegiance


SUNTRUST
Continued from 1A
_ facial description; The robber's
method of operation, though
common, did not match any
other open investigations.
During the early parts of the
investigation, Police Sgt.
Decarius Jones stood guard
with Police Chief Tom Dettman
around a beige four-door
Honda Accord. The absent
driver had pulled out of a park-
ing space on the north end of
the parking lot and left the car
sitting in gear in the traffic
path.
While Dettman helped
search the store, a Highlands
County Sheriff's Office K-9
Deputy Kris Ahler led his dog
on a circuit of the outside of the
building. Then, the dog was
allowed in the car for a fresh
scent. Shortly after that, the
dog led a track to a storm water
spillway in the retention pond
on the north end of the lot.
Ahler crawled into the pipe
with his weapon drawn, but did
not find anyone.
Anyone with information on
this case should call the
Sebring Police Department at
471-5107.


REQUEST
Continued from 1A
"mobile home owners."
Polatty said that the Florida
Mobile Home Trust pays a
nominal amount to help move a
mobile home. Residents who
met recently with the landown-
ers were offered a nominal
amount $1,000 for their
homes, but that was not enough
to buy or rent a new residence.
History
Sebring Properties had the
property rezoned last year. The
Highlands County Planning
and Zoning Board recommend-
ed rezoning July 12, 2004, and
the county commission
approved it July 27, 2004. The
applicants, allegedly, did not
notify all the residents properly,
as residents told the planning
and zoning board March 8.
That board tabled its hearing
until April 12. The applicant's
lawyer's testified that night that
notice had been given, so the
planning and zoning board
again recommended the matter
for approval, 6-1, with John
Bock dissenting.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring Signs & Promotions artist Garrett Purkey applies a wrap recently to the exterior of a van for
Sebring Florist Inc.




Get vehicles wrapped




up in advertisement


By KATARA SIMMONS
News-Sun
SEBRING For both busi-
ness or pleasure, Sebring Signs
& Promotions is offering a new
way to catch people's attention.
"We are offering a new fea-
ture for this area," owner Linda.
Riggs said. "It's called a wrap,"
which are vinyl films that cover
vehicles with just about any
imaginable advertisement or
design.
According to Riggs, this
form of mobile outdoor adver-
tising seems to be popping up in
every major city in the United
States and is now available
- locally.
The concept is simple,
instead of using billboards in a
fixed location and relying on


'We can do just

windows or

entire vehicles.'

LINDA RIGGS, owner

people to pass by them, the sign
instead, is "wrapped" around a
vehicle and is then driven
around town to promote itself.
Sebring Signs & Promotions
now has the technology to
design, produce and apply large
format full color graphics to the
exterior of cars, trucks and
vans.
"We can do just windows or
entire vehicles," Riggs empha-
sized. "We have clipart or can


do custom orders. We have our
own artist who can draw ideas
and make them happen."
The wraps not only look
impressive, but they also pro-
tect the vehicle's paint from
harmful ultraviolet rays and
from oxidizing. They last about
four years, can go through car
washes arid can be removed
without damaging the exterior.

AVON PARK The.
National Marrow Donor
Program, which has an age
limit for the registry from 18-60
years old, is a way everyone
can help save a life.
A person can get on the
National Marrow Donor
Program via Florida's Blood
Centers- Highlands, or May 4 at
Avon Park Chevy from 11 a.m.
to 3 p.m. This will be a blood
and bone marrow drive with the
bloodmobile at the site.
The first successful bone
marrow transplant in 1968
charted a new course for the
treatment of leukemia, a plastic
anemia and many other life-
threatening blood diseases.
Rigorous treatment using
chemotherapy and/or radiation
kills of cancerous cells, but also
kills off the bone marrow,
which contains stem cells. It is
the stem cells within the trans-
planted bone marrow that allow
these patients to grow healthy
new immune systems, without
this, they would certainly die.
What is the stem cell? Stem


cells are the cells transplant
patience need to make healthy
new marrow. They are imma-
ture cells that can develop into
any of the cells present in the
blood stream: red blood cells,
white blood cells and platelets.
Stem cells usually live in the
marrow. The marrow is where a
person's blood cells are born,
and then released into the body.
When someone has a life threat-
ening blood disease, things in
their bone marrow start going
crazy, they may over produce
too much of one blood cell, thus
resulting in leukemia.
Many patients who cannot
find a match within their own
family receive marrow trans-
plants from volunteer donors.
Currently more than 1,400
patients receive transplants
throughout the year. Sadly,
more than 30,000 children and
adults in the United States are
diagnosed with diseases for
which a stem cell transplant can
be a cure. Only 30 percent will
find a matched donor in their
family, the other 70 percent


must search for an unrelated
donor.
The odds for finding a match

vary widely, depending on the
rarity of the donor's tissue type.
The registry is always look for
volunteers to join the list. There
is a great need of minority
donors to help the many minor-
ity patients searching the reg-
istry.
There is a cost involved in
joining the registry, but if a per-
son donates blood at the same
time, the $75 fee is waived. If a
person can't donate blood, get
someone to donate blood for
them and the fee is waived as
well.
Visit www.marrow.org for
more information.
For more details, call
Florida's Blood Centers Donor
Development Coordinator
Deah Spires at 382-4499 or stop
by 6550 U.S. 27 N., Sebring to
donate. Hours of operation are
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and
Friday; and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Thursday.

Good Shepherd Hospice names

Mcintyre as new site director


Woodcarvers give to HALLO


SEBRING Good
Shepherd Hospice announces
the naming of Becky McIntyre,
registered nurse, as site director
for Highlands and Hardee coun-
ties
McIntyre is replacing
Johhsie McAlister who trans-
ferred to the Good Shepherd
office in Auburndale. After sev-
eral years as a nurse in doctor's
offices, intensive care units, and
home-health supervision and
business development,
McIntyre assumed her new
duties earlier this year.
"I came to Good Shepherd
Hospice with a purpose,"
McIntyre said, inspired by Rick
Warren's "A Purpose-Driven
Life." "I believe it's my job to


Becky McIntyre

purposefully affect people's
lives. I know the people in this
area, and I want to help ease
their end-of-life concerns."
McIntyre was born in Avon
Park as a third-generation


Highlands County native. She
earned her bachelor's degree in
organizational management
from Warner Southern College
and began her nursing career in
1981. She is married to
Raymond McIntyre, the
Highlands County Property
Appraiser. They have two chil-
dren, Garrett, 17, who attends
Sebring High School, and
Heather, 12, who attends
Sebring Middle School.
Good Shepherd Hospice is a
not-for-profit, accredited organ-
ization that provides patient and
family care in Highlands,
Hardee and Polk counties for
those coping with the last 12
months of a life-limiting illness.

A special bus driver


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Marlene Walton (from left), Deanne Jacobs and Brandy Landers, students at Lake Placid Middle
School, wrote letters of thank you to school bus driver Larry Wall, which they read at a recent
school board meeting. Wall, a substitute driver, was able to take evasive action when a truck,
involved in an accident at U. S. 27 and Main Street in Lake Placid, overturned repeatedly, endan-
gering the school bus.

SEBRING It appears that
most of the winter residents,
snowbirds and tourists have left
Highlands County for yet
another year.
But members of the Sebring

During May through August,

S.Stress ... How much

a can a kid handle?


The influence on teenagers of our generation


By TIFFANY KRUCKER
Sebring High School
Influence is a pretty powerful
word these days.
The influence that our gener-
ation's teenagers are put under
is overwhelming. You have to
look like this, talk like that,
wear this or wear that, you're
not cool if you don't do this,
and if you don't listen to this
music then you can't hang out
with us.
It's unbelievable the things
that teenagers are faced with in
today's world.
Teens are put under so much
pressure to fit in, then when
they do, they come home and
have to face what their parents


Teenage


drivers also


feel pinch


of higher


gas prices

By ARIEL VUTO
Sebring High School
Gasoline prices are no joke,
especially when the most com-
monly heard reference to gas is
the word "increase."
April 10's
edition of
the News-
Sun report-
ed that gas
might
increase up
to $3 per
gallon. Can
you imagine
what the gasoline prices could
range from within the next few
years? I'd rather not even think
about it.
FloridaStateGasPrices. corn
is a free Web site that is work-
ing to lower the prices of gaso-
line. According to them, the top
expensive gas station was
Chevron. Some of the lower-
priced gas stations were listed:
Circle K, Citgo, Amoco, and
RaceTrac.
The price of gasoline has an
even harsher impact on teenage
drivers.
Why?
Well; the majority of them
go to school rather than spend
their daytime hours at work.
"I feel that the increases of
gasoline prices are ridiculous. I
receive $80 every other week
from my mom and that is still,
not enough," Sebring High jun-
ior Jenna Pontius said. "The
government was wrong. They
really don't know what is bene-
ficial to us."
The increase of gasoline is
getting higher and higher.
There are a lot of groups out
there that are starting to form in
order to help take a stand and
voice their opinion in lowering
prices.
FloridaStateGasPrices.comr
for example, is only one Web
site with online petitions asking
viewers to sign.


think of their new friends.
Even though you think that
your parents don't know any-
thing and that they don't know
what you're going through, sur-
prise, they do know what. you
are going through and they have
probably been through it them-
selves. Yes, they were kids once
too.
True, they probably weren't
faced with as many of the
things that you are faced with,
but they have the experience
and they know what to do.
Parents are one of tne many
influences on your lives, and
hopefully they are a good influ-
ence.
One Of the biggest influences


these days is the media. If a
celebrity is wearing this, then
you have to wear it too, just so
you can fit in with that certain
crowd. Well, in my opinion, if
you have to dress a certain way,
or talk a certain way just to
hang out with the 'popular
crowd' then they're not worth
the trouble!
It's a shame that with all the
"different crowds" going
around, people still judge you
and put you in a "certain
crowd."
Friends are also a really big
influence on the things that you
do.
For example, if friends are
doing something that you nor-


mally don't do, then when you
see them and they say that "it is
cool" so, of course, you will do
it. If a really good friend says
that you need to do this or wear
that, then perhaps they're not
really your friends. Friends
have a big say in your life and
the things you do.

I say just do what you want
(within reason) and don't do
what other people tell you to do,
except for your parents. Listen
to your personal code of ethics
you've been developing since
birth. Just be yourself and peo-
ple will like you for that,
instead of being something that
you're not.


A part-time job,
sure, nearly everyone
has one. But, how
much can kids handle
between their jobs
making them come
home at 10 o'clock or
12 o'clock at night
and then having to do
their homework?
Parents say you
need to earn your
own money, to learn
the true value of a
dollar, but what you


TINA KF

SEBRING
SCHC
-


really need at age 16
is sleep!
Teens today mostly have
jobs, and many of those jobs
don't let you come home until
11 p.m. Some might say that
kids need to be taught "respon-
sibility," but they don't need to
learn it that way. Even though
they're young, and they really
need the job, they still have to
concentrate on their school
work.
"It is a fact that teens need to
get at least nine hours of sleep a
night. The three hours of sleep
that they're not getting may not
seem like a big deal now, but it
actually is," said Pamela from
Child Development.com.
When kids don't get enough
sleep, it reflects on their aca-
demic work as well. How?
When kids don't sleep, they
get tired, then they have to go to
school. They aren't going to do


their work because
they're too tired. So
instead of getting
that nice A, they get
an F. And when they
come home from
work, the last thing
on their mind is, "Oh
no, I didn't do my
homework, let me
RUCKER get out of my ever so
- comfortable position
HIGH and do that so I don't
OOL get a bad grade." On
- the other hand, if
you're not feeling
well, you might actually say
that ... and do it!
Then your parents come into
the picture and tell you that you
need to get more involved with
your school, and you're proba-
bly thinking that if you get any-
more involved with the school,
you might as well live there.
Let's face it, no kid is going
to want to go to sleep at an early
bedtime. They're going to want
to stay up later and go out with
their friends. As kids get older,
they are given more independ-
ence and freedom, along with
that trusty old responsibility.
When they get that freedom, it
gives them more incentive to go
out and stay out all hours of the
night, without getting any
sleep!
So, the point is, stay home,
get sleep, do your homework,
and be a kid!

Chris Leveridge and the 'remarkable woman' in his life, Louise Kinsey Holdman.


A remarkable woman


By CHRIS LEVERIDGE
Sebring High School
A trustworthy friend, a dedi-
cated member, a loving moth-
er/grandmother, a wise woman
of God, and an active caregiver
all characterize Louise Kinsey
Holdman as a sincere, down-to-
earth woman.
in life. many people don't
often get a chance to meet such
a remarkable woman as her.
Those who have had the pleas-
ure of getting to know Mrs.
Louise consider her a blessing.
This remarkable woman is
the loyal mother of six children,
42 grandchildren, 80 great-
grandchildren, and seven great-
great-grandchildren. She has
been a citizen of Sebring for
more than 60 years.
She and her mother moved to
Sebring when she was just 4
years old. She formerly attend-
ed E.O. Douglass as a youth.
She enjoys fishing, attending
church services, and hosting


dinner parties.
She recently organized a din-
ner party for some of her good
friends. The dinner consisted of
an appetizing garden salad,
fresh fried fish, scrumptious
hush puppies, and delicious
potato salad. She is widely
known for her buttery home-
made biscuits.
Her .hobbies include sewing
colorful handkerchiefs for the
women of local churches and
putting together difficult puz-
zles.
"I enjoy putting puzzles
together because it is fun and
relaxes my mind," she said.
Furthermore, she visits ill
friends and relatives in the hos-
pital. She is a faithful member
of the mother board and food
committee at her church,
Bountiful Blessings Church of
God. She is also a steadfast
member of the church's silver
bells group ( a group for female
senior citizens).


In addition, she is a musical
woman. She is the grandmother
of the legendary singing group
"The Holdman Grands." The
group consists of a host of her
grandchildren, great-grandchil-
dren, and great-great-grandchil-
dren.
"They have been singing all
of their lives,"' said Mae
McGowan, a close friend of the
family.
One of Louise Holdman's
favorite songs is "Steal Away."
In this great woman lies a
determined mind to see her
friends and relatives be success-
ful in whatever they embark on,
a mind to live right in the sight
of God, and a mind of humani-
tarianism.
She is one who shows kind-
ness and receives it as an imper-
ative reward.
She is held up by her strong
will. She continues to divinely
move and motivate many peo-
ple young and old.

Rumors and gossip seem to
be the core of the high school
world. You can't go a day with-
out hearing about
how "so and so is 91 p
this or that."
"People gossip in of ru
high school in order
to make themselves are a
feel better," said g
Ariel Vuto, a sopho-
more at Sebring
High School. "They find it fun
to talk with friends about what
other people have done."
This trend is especially true
with girls. According to an
internet poll done by Teen
People, 91 percent of rumors
are about girls.
"Girls gossip because they
want to get back at someone,"
said Noelle Johnson, a sopho-
more at Sebring High School.


An interest in
By SAMANTHA HORNICK
Sebring High School
Psychology is a career that I
am considering for college
degree after graduation from
high school. It certainly seems
like a highly interesting career
choice with many options to
specialize in.
Psychologists study process-
es of the mind and behavior of
humans. According to the
American Psychological
Association, psychologists are
concerned with two kinds of
relationships: one between
brain function and behavior,
and the other between the envi-
ronment and behavior.
Psychologists do research, and
diagnose and treat patients for
their illnesses.
A few of the special fields of
psychology include: clinical
psychology in which patients

"Girls don't usually fight so
they have to get back at the per-
son emotionally rather then
physically."
Rumors do have a range to
them. Some are
recent more hurtful than
others, but all have
mors consequences when
spread.
bout Seventy-three
is. percent of the peo-
ple polled at Teen
People reported
they had been the subject of
rumors. Of those, 29 percent
said it made them angry, while
19 percent said it had no effect
on them at all. One percent said
that it got so bad they had to
change schools.
There's a saying that goes
great minds talk of ideas, while
small minds talk of others. If
this is true, then high school is
filled with peanut size minds.

psychology

gists study human develop-
ment; health psychologists help
with illnesses and health issues;
and school psychologists focus
on relationships and their effect
on behavior.
The starting point begins
with a bachelor's degree in psy-
chology. Most of the specialties
require a master's degree or
doctoral degree. Most psychol-
ogists work in educational
fields or in health-related serv-
ices. Almost half own private
practices.
Since there are so many spe-
cialties, the salaries vary wide-
ly. The middle range of salary is
up to around $50,000, accord-
ing to the U.S. Department of
Labor. Top-level positions can
accumulate a salary to more
than $100,000 a year.
The psychology field is
growing, and I possibly want to
be a part of it. The field of psy-
chology seems to be unique,
exciting and rewarding.


Now is the time to

plan for their future.

recipient, if they qualify.
The power wheelchairs are
provided to those who can no
longer walk nor self-propel a
mfinual wheelchair and who
meet the additional guidelines
of the program. No deposit is
required.
If the patient's need is for
use in the home, call for more
information to see if they
qualify. Call toll-free at (800)
246-6010.
The Senior Wheels USA
Program's main purpose and
goal is to develop public
awareness that there are assis-
tance options that allow senior
citizens (as well as the perma-
nently disabled) to remain
independent in their own
homes. Without this aware-
ness and assistance, the fami-
ly may prematurely choose a
nursing home or make an
unnecessary retail purchase on
power mobility equipment.
If the patient does not meet
all the requirements of the
program, they may still be
able to get help through the
donation program. This is
made available when people
call wanting to donate their
power wheelchairs that are no
longer needed.

Newsom implants
SEBRING Dr. T. Hunter Newsom claims to
be first again in Central Florida to offer new tech-
nology in eye surgery.
The new Verisyse lens is the first of its kind to
receive Food and Drug Administration approval.
It is suitable for the reduction or elimination of
nearsightedness in adults with myopia (difficulty
seeing distance) ranging from -5.0 to -20.0
diopters and in patients 21 and over.
"I feel honored to introduce this innovative
treatment to this area," Newsom said "and look
forward to being able to offer my patients a solu-'
tion for those who had little hope of better vision
before."
Newsom was one of the first physicians in the


lens for myopia
United States to implant the lens and was
involved in the initial research in 2000.
.Approximately 3 million people, or 5-10 per-
cent of the population are too nearsighted to have
Lasik and are candidates for this procedure. This
unique, patented lens design was introduced in.
Europe more. than 17 years ago and has been
safely implanted in more than 150,000 eyes
worldwide.
To find out more about the Verisyse lens and
Newsom, call 385-1544 or visit the Web site at
www.newsomeye.com. Newsom Eye & Laser
Center is at 3205 Physicians Way (off Highlands
Avenue) and it is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.

SEBRING Opening up a
flood-control structure on the
south end of Lake Istokpoga
may keep the area from flood-
ing.
Of course, last year's hurri-
canes showed it depends on
which way the wind is blowing.
Heavy wind surges from
Hurricane Jeanne sent water
upstream, hitting flood-control
structures and overflowing.
The same was true when
winds reversed. Lake Istokpoga
has two structures: One on the
south end and one on Lake
Istokpoga Canal, connecting it
to the Kissimmee River. The
one on the south side of the lake
- S-68 was shut during
Jeanne.
Water overflowed and
washed County Road 621, said
County Administrator Carl
Cool. The road could have
washed out, stranding residents,
and could have wrecked the
food chain.
SFWMD answer
Bob Howard, director of
operations for the South Florida


Water Management District,
said four hurricanes in one sea-
son revealed any and all flaws
in the flood control system.
Right now, SFWMD staff are
reviewing options, including
putting an extra "barrel" or
gate on the south-end struc-
ture. That would allow the
water district to release another
800 cubic feet per second from
the lake during an emergency.
That may not be enough,
though. Ever since the Army
Corps of Engineers restored the
Kissimmee River flood plain,
the river bed is now higher than
Lake Istokpoga, and water
could flow backward into the
lake if the gate on Lake
Istokpoga Canal were opened.
Right now, that structure -
G-85 doesn't function. The
canal isn't large enough to
allow more than 400 cubic feet
of water per second. Still, if that
structure overflows with the S-
68 control structure as the only
one to manage flooding, the
river could run more water into
the lake than SFWMD could let
out.
Cool wants the water district


included in the county's hurri-
cane management plan to see
what the county and district can
do together to prevent flooding.
Howard said SFWMD has
been working hard since Aug.
15, 2004, but hasn't finished
evaluations of what changes
they can make.
Weird surges
When Hurricane Jeanne first
arrived, the Kissimmee River
basin saw 30 inches of rain in
just two or three days. That
wreaked havoc all over the sys-
tem.
"We were shutting structures
to prevent water from running
back upstream," Howard said.
Thanks to wind surges, the
north end of Lake Okeechobee
had an elevation of eight feet
above sea level. The south end
was up to 21 feet. When winds
shifted, elevation on the north
ran up to 23 feet.
Turbulence in the water
stirred up sediments, so nutrient
and contaminant levels are "off
the scale" right now, Howard
said. Full dihitlnUn, with normal
rainfall, may take 10 years for
the 400,000-acre lake.


New radio equipment should help EOC


News-Sun
SEBRING. Highlands
County is completing a four-
year project to install new radio
equipment.
Hopefully, the new system
will improve communication in
the field with better clarity and
better reception.
Ben Henley, 911 communi-
cations coordinator, said the
new UHF radios should give
the county a lot more channels


than the VHF radios they have.
All of the public safety agencies
will be on the same frequency
band, so they will be able to
work together better in the
field.
The project is being funded
with $2.8 million in the coun-
ty's capital improvement plan.
It will include mobile data sys-
tems, so local law municipal
enforcement will be able to run
vehicle tags in the field and


gather more information at traf-
fic stops before they actually
talk to the driver.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office wants a sepa-
rate system, based on a different
technology, for in-car laptop
computers.
In the midst of the upgrade,
however, Henley is still doing
repairs to the county's radio
system, thanks to last year's
hurricanes.

ROMONA WASHINGTON

Moving forward

It's been a longtime coming, but Avon Park's commu-
nity leaders are taking some steps forward to improve the
city's image.
As many as 70 people gathered last week to look at a
vision for the City of Charm. They used the 20-point
program called "Clues to Rural Community Survival"
developed by a Nebraska-based organization called the
Heartland Center for Leadership Development.
The number one strength of the city as determined by
the crowd was "A strong belief in, and support of educa-
tion."
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."
Community pride had an overwhelming number of
votes for weakness.
There were 21 people who signed up for the action
committee to work on community pride, five who want-
ed to address the quality of business and community life
arid six who were willing to work on the willingness to
invest in the community.
Only four people wanted to work on the action com-
mittee dealing with the strong belief in, and support of
education.
The Avon Park Chamber of Commerce has agreed to
form the committees and come up with an action plan for,
each one. The chamber's executive board is meeting.
Thursday to begin putting those committees in place.
The project is the result of a $5,000 Community
Defense Grant through Enterprise Florida. The program
is designed to assist communities that have military
bases.
Greenslade was pleased in terms of numbers of people
and the cross section of the community who came to par-
ticipate in the program.
There already are plans to call the group back together
again in September to review the progress' that had been
made by each .of the committees.
Good things.are happening in Avon Park.
Wal-Mart's arrival may be met with some opposition,
but no one can deny that its arrival will eventually mean
additional growth to the city's highway business district.
With this group of people who are helping set a vision
for the city, Avon Park's future is brighter than it has been.
in a long time.







WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINION.
In what ways does Avon Park suffer
from community pride?

in the midst and said to them,
"Peace be with you." (NKJV)

There are some hymns we
sing, e.g. "I Surrender All," and
"I Would Be like Jesus," where.
most of us might do better to
hang our heads and be quiet. I
know that I am still a long way
from surrendering all, God help
me to do better! And as for
being like Jesus, I think a stark
example of where we differ
relates to what our victorious
Lord did on the day of His res-
urrection.
In His place, upon majesti-.
cally emerging from the tomb, I
would have made a bee-line for

Accept the pope

in His faith
Editor:
To those Catholics (and oth-
ers) who are disappointed with
the selection of traditionally
conservative Cardinal Joseph
Ratzinger in becoming our new
pope; know that the Holy Spirit
inspired the Cardinals during
their conclave to elect a new
pope with the appropriate reli-
gious attitude desired by our
Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore realize, Jesus did
not 'Wonder who the Cardinals
are going to elect to be his next
pope?' because our Savior pre-
viously knew (and had already
selected) exactly who would be
His next pope, the eminent
vicar of Christ on earth.
So if you don't like His
choice for pope ... it's Jesus our
Lord you have to blame -- not
the Cardinals!
However, it is definitely not
wise to be an anti-Christ.
Therefore, accept in faith His
choice. Amen.

A vote in favor

of school tax
Editor:
We would like to express our
strong support for the
Highlands County Public
School District's half cent sales
tax initiative. The school
board's blueprint for use of the
sales tax funds is detailed and
specific and will enable our
school district to plan wisely as
-Highlands County grows.
High quality schools are
important for everyone in our
county, not just for families
with school age children.
Seniors are also relocated to
our area in large numbers,


Joining up with my
cowering disciples
oTS OF would have been the
TH second thing on my
- agenda.
neth But, what does He
do? He first reveals
- Himself and comforts
a grieving woman,
who loved Him with all her
heart. Then, He appears to his
sequestered, puzzled and
defeated disciples to show them
that they're not losers but win-
ners; and somewhere along the
line he comes up alongside of a.
couple sadly trudging back to
Emmaus (and I am convinced
they were husband and wife:
Cleopas and Mary), to both
give them the definitive dis-
course on Old Testament
prophecy, and finally amaze
and cheer their hearts by reveal-
ing His identity.
I think the issue here is the
conflict between unproductive
vindication and mission priori-
ty. I find no place in Scripture
where the risen Christ ever
bothered to play the nah-nah-
nanah-nah game to which I, at


increasing the demand for high
qualityprofessionals and serv-
ice businesses in our area.
Many of these professionals
have a family and will choose
to settle in other areas of
Florida if we do not maintain
our school facilities and contin-'
ue -to improve educational
opportunities in Highlands
County.
Superintendent Wally Cox
has promised accountability for
the funds raised from the half
cent sales tax. This is not a
promise that we take 'lightly.
The District School Advisory
Committee, which consists of
parents from every public
school in the county as well as
representatives from the
administration and district
offices, will closely monitor the
progress of projects funded by
sales tax revenues. The sales
tax fund will only be used for
facilities construction and
improvements that are urgently
needed as our county's school
age population increases.
Highlands County has
reached an important cross-
roads in its growth and eco-
nomic development. A high
quality public education system
will benefit everyone in
Highlands County and will be
the key element in attracting
successful businesses and pro-
fessionals to our area.
Please vote YES for the half
cent education sales tax for
Highlands County schools.

LETTERS
Continued from 22A
rest of the world, it is not easy
to take a position that would
appear to be in opposition to
our schools.
However, before accepting
the need to increase our sales
tax from 7 percent to 7 1/2 per-
cent, orie should ask: what
about the huge bonanza in tax
revenue the county will receive
from the increased valuation
the property tax assessor will
place on new and recently sold
homes in Highlands County?
Where will that money go?
It's no secret that the value
of homes in Highlands County
has increased two- and three-
fold in recent times, especially
this year and last. The house I
purchased in 1990 for $90,000
with taxes of $700 had seen its
taxes raised by $1,400 to
$2,100 in 2003 on. a tax assess-
ment of $125,000. In 2004 I
sold this house for $300,000,
which will probably raise its
taxes to about $5,000 for a tax
increase of another $2,900.
What a bonanza!
Where will that money go?
Have we heard any talk about a
decrease in millage rates?
Already, the residents of
Highlands County voted upon
themselves one of the highest
sales tax rates in Florida when
they voted for the-extra 1 per-
cent county discretionary tax
on top of the 6 percent state tax
for a total of 7 percent. If we
vote for another half percent on
that we will then be at 7 1/2 tax
on most of our purchases. Only
four out of Florida's 67 coun-
ties have a sales tax that high.
Consider, too, that according
to a recent report in Investor's
Business Daily quoting the
American Petroleum Institute
that Florida is the fourth high-
est in federal and state taxes in
the nation on gasoline and that
doesn't even count the extra
penny Highlands County gas
tax that we voted upon our-
selves. Just by driving across
the state line into Georgia, the
federal and state tax on gaso-
line drops by 12 cents per gal-
lon.
When we voted for the
- Florida Lottery we were told


this would take care of most of
the needs of our educational
system. What happened to that
concept?

Our school system is not a
sacred cow. On March 30,
NBC TV news reported on its
"Fleecing of America" segment
how the superintendent of
schools in Long Island, N.Y.,
was charged with stealing
$11.2 million from the school
system and sharing it with 29
others in his administration.
They further reported that sim-
ilar charges had been made
against school systems in
Missouri, Colorado and
Michigan.

I am not suggesting that con-
ditions such as these exist .in
Highlands County. I am calling
attention to these events to
point out that our school sys-
tem, its administrators and its'
employees are not sacred and
should be held in the same
standard of credibility as any
other tax supported entity. We
should not cast our vote to
increase taxes on ourselves
merely because the schools are
attached to it.

Your vote, however, is
sacred. And you should treat it
as such. And shouldn't you ask:
Why is it that we are only told
about more people creating
more cost? Doesn't the existing
7 percent tax paid on more
sales from more people also
create more tax revenue? And
don't the higher prices on
everything create more dollars
for our governing bodies than.
lower prices did? And why is
the Florida Lotto giving less
money to the school. system
than we were told it would
when we voted for it?

Already there are those in
government .starting to talk
about changing the 50-cent tax
per gallon of gas we pay in fed-
eral, state and county taxes to a
percentage rate rather than the
existing fixed rate per gallon so
that higher gas prices will have
us paying more in taxes the
way the sales tax does.

A tribute to the

many mothers
Editor:
A mother is someone to shel-
ter and guide us, to love us
whatever we do, with a warm
understanding, patience and
wonderful gentleness too. How
tenderly she watches over. us
children and soothes our child-
ish fears. She is full of forgive-
ness for any mistake, big or
small.
She can utter a word of com-
passion and make all of our
cares go away. Not. until we
become adults do we really
begin to appreciate who mother
really is. Mothers are really
special people.
Is your mother living today?
If so, you are lucky, so try and
show her how wonderful she
really is on Mother's Day.. Just
tell her you love her and give
her a big hug. You will never
know how much this will mean
to her.
If you are like me and your
mother has gone to a better
place, be thankful for the good
and kind memories you.have of
her. You might even thank your
dad as he chose that great lady
to be your mom.
Mother's Day started on the
second Sunday of May in 1907
and has been celebrated that
day ever since.
On this day, the wearing of
carnations is a tradition. Red is
to wear for a living mother and
white for the mothers who are
no longer with us. Lots of chil-
dren honor their mothers this
day with gifts, but if you really
want to give her something
special and especially from
you, give her some hugs and
kisses.
So let us be very thankful for
the blessings we receive daily
and remember to honor mother
everyday, not only on Mother's
Day. She is the only mother
you will ever have so appreci-
ate her while she is still with
you. May you be 'blessed with
the influence of a mother's
love, which still remains with
us today and may we honor and
cherish, the true and precious
things in life.
God bless and keep our
mothers safe wherever they


may be.
Here is wishing all the moth-
ers who read this a Happy
Mother's Day.

Options good

for citizens
Editor:
What do I think about Wal-
Mart coming to Avon Park? I
applaud Avon Park for allow-
ing options for their citizens.
As has been said, competition
is good for everyone. It might
even save some lives of those
who must travel on our sui-
cide highway.
When we moved to Lake
Placid 20 years ago, Wal-Mart
was at the southern end of
Sebring. Then Wal-Mart
moved to the most northern end
of Sebring, further for Lake
Placid residents to travel on the
highway I mentioned above.
But presently the Sebring store
and its parking lot is extremely
crowded, and since the location
is only a few miles from Avon
Park it seems it would make
more sense for them to move to
Lake Placid.
"Horrors! I can already
hear the powers that be in Lake
Placid exclaiming.
Our lovely Lake Placid is
too good for all that! They've
already chased away a
Walgreens even though the
murals were to be saved. And
what do we have there now on
one of our busiest comers? A
brand new empty building that
was a gas station, closed to
make room for the Walgreens
that our local businesses man-
aged to keep out.
For that matter, we could use
a little competition on the gaso-
line. I keep hearing how the
national average price for self
serve regular gasoline is $2.24
and for two or three weeks, the
price at Lake Placid Gate, not
Sebring Gate has been $2.35,
even, after prices were coming
down in the Sebring.

The realtors and builders
must be ecstatic over the
.droves of people moving in,
particularly with the rising
prices. The money is piling into


the area, and their wallets are
getting thicker and thicker. But,
when will they wake up to the
fact that people want services
and shopping? In my opinion,
they can't have it both ways,
but I bet.they keep trying.
Yes, I do appreciate the fact
that they did have the foresight
to plan the frontage roads we
have in Lake Placid and that
they do want to keep Lake
Placid beautiful. But hopefully,
Lake Placid will be needing
more frontage roads.
Aside from all that, and
although I wish it weren't so,
sooner or later a traffic light
will need to be installed at the
comer of Lake June Road and
Route 27.

Smith shut down the Devils from
that point on and the Bulldogs Avon
pulled out a 6-5 win. I
The Devils end their season at 1
14-7, while the Bulldogs (16-7),
who knocked out Lake Placid with an
11-1 win on Monday, advance to
Thursday's final against either DeSoto
or Mulberry.
Despite the loss, Avon Park coach
Mike Cobb was glad to see his team


fight back from its shaky start and get
back into the game.
"They didn't roll over and die," Cobb
said. "We didn't play our best game. We
seemed to have the jitters and couldn't
handle the ball and couldn't cover our
bases and couldn't do a lot of things in
roof the field. They held on and played
a decent game, but it wasn't us; it
wasn't our game."
The Devils stumbled out of the
Park gate as the Bulldogs opened the
game with four runs on four hits, a
walk, a wild pitch and an error,
then added another run in the top
of the fourth.
Smith seemingly had things under
control, allowing just one hit and strik-
ing out six through the first four innings,
but the fifth inning was a different story.

Firemen no-hit



Elks in 12-2 win


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING Evan Lewis
and Jesse Baker will always
have a memory they can share.
The two of them combined to
no-hit the previously unbeaten
Elks on Monday night, giving
the Firemen a 12-2 five-inning
win in Sebring Dixie Youth
Majors action.
"I didn't want to take (Lewis)
out, but we've got another
game Thursday," Firemen man-
ager Ryan Leaphart said of his
decision to go with Baker in the
fifth.
"We've got to get some work
in for the other guy, and (Lewis)
did walk a couple."
Lewis (1-1) did walk the


bases full in the fourth, and both
of the Elks' runs scored on a
subsequent error. Yet for most
of the evening he was on,
recording nine of his 12 outs by
strikeout.
"When Evan's throwing
strikes, he's tough to hit,"
Leaphart said.
Baker then showed off his
ability to fan batters by striking
out the side in the fifth, and the
Firemen (3-1) turned to their
able offense to run-rule the Elks
(3-1) in the bottom of the
inning.
"That's what I said was prob-
ably our strong point was
before the year. We're going to
score some runs," Leaphart
said. "The only game we lost


we scored one run. The next
three, we scored over 30
(total)."
The Firemen broke the game
open early, when Jonathan
Knight brought home Lewis
and James Heston on a three-
run homer to left. Jacob
Hensley added a single and
Justin Acevedo brought him
home with a two-RBI hit that
capped the six-run Firemen
first.
Hensley singled again in the
second to bring in Baker with
another run, and then Baker
turned around and smashed a
two-run homer just to the right
of dead center in the third.
Heston delivered another
two-run single in the fourth,


while Knight's leadoff double
in the fifth set the stage for
three straight walks, the last of
which, to Dane Maddox, forced
in the game-ending run.
Yet Leaphart walked away
with respect for the Elks, who
have turned around their team
after a winless expansion cam-
paign last year.
"That's a scrappy team.
That's not normal for them, to
get 10-run-ruled," he said. "I
wouldn't expect that next time
out from them."
Gunnar Westergom, who
entered batting 6-for-7, and
Seth Abeln both walked and
chugged home on the fourth-
inning bases-loaded error that
scored the Elk runs.

Veteran Cardinals too


much for rookie Orioles


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Lane Crosson hits a run-scoring single for the Cardinals on Monday.


By SCOWT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK So much
for the welcome wagon.
The Ladwig Land Clearing
Orioles were rather rudely ush-
ered into the Avon Park Dixie
Youth Majors (ages 11-12)
league Monday night by the
Crosson Tree Service
Cardinals, who racked up 14
hits on the way to a 16-3 win at
Durrah Martin Complex.
It was the first ever games
for the Orioles, an expansion
team just added to the league.
The Cardinals, on the other
hand, had a lot of the same
players on last year's roster, and
the difference showed.


However, it was the Orioles
who drew first blood, scoring
two runs in the top of the first
when Jarviel Hart reached on a
fielder's choice and scored on a
wild pitch and Favianette Cotte
walked and scored when she
stole third and the throw went
into left field.
But the Cardinals greeted the
Orioles defense with consecu-
tive singles from Gregory
Gentry, Wes Kisela, Drew
Reeves and Lane Crosson, and
trouble in the outfield allowed
those first;three to score. Kisela
didn't stop running, in fact,
coming all the way around to

later stole home after advancing to third
on Jessica Cormier's infield single.

weight class and a third by
Alex Caldwell in the 139-
pound division to finish
eighth as a team in the Class
lA state championships at
the O'Connell Center in.
Gainesville on Saturday.
"There's 109 teams in
our lA division," Avon Park
head coach Don Hickman
said. "That's not bad at all.
And four of the teams from
the top 15 were from our
district."
One of those teams from
Avon Park's district was
state champion Bartow,
while Fort Meade finished
ninth and Lake Wales 14th.
No individual was more
dominant than Arsenio
Ivory of second-place
Blountstown, who won the
169-pound class by 95
pounds. Given that no one
could compete with Ivory,
Sanders was pleased to best
all the others.
"I was real happy with
that," Hickman said of
Sanders' effort, which net-
ted a 595-pound combined
score. "He's all proud and
walking around with his
medal today, which he
should be."
Caldwell's class was just
the opposite, as Brooksville
Hernando's Anthony
Roberts finished just 10
pounds in front of runner-
up Todd Sims from Bartow,
who in turn was 10 pounds
ahead of Caldwell.
"He's proud, too,"
Hickman said of Caldwell,
whose total of 505 at state
was a school record for that
weight class. "He's wearing
his medal today, too."
Justin Wilson finished
11th in the 154-pound class,
and Jason Roman was 16th
amongst 129-pounders, a
class in which Sebring's Joe
Forest, the only other
Highlands County lifter in
Gainesville, finished eighth.
Another Red Devil had a
shot at placing, but 119-
pounder John Medina
couldn't make weight.
"I really don't know what
happened," Hickman said.
"It's one of those cases
where he made weight all
year, and he was a pound

The fifth batter in the lineup,
Brandon Gunn, also reached
base and scored later in the
inning to give the Cardinals,
who sent all nine batters to the
plate in the inning, a 4-2 lead.
After Gentry struck out the
side in the top of the second, the
Cardinals tacked on four more
runs in similar fashion to the
first inning except this time, the
first five batters got hits. Gentry
led off with a single and, once
again, Kisela never stopped
running when his single up the
middle got to the fence, making
it 6-2.
After a single by Reeves and
a double from Crosson, Gunn
smoked a triple to deep center
field to drive in two runs for an
8-2 lead as the Cardinals sent
nine batters to the plate once
again.
- The Orioles got one of those
runs back in the top of the third
when Cole Jones reached on an
error and scored when Cotte

first ever hit and RBI. Cotte

Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE The Florida Senior
Games State Championships 2004 Athletes
of the Year, Harry Carothers of Pinellas
Park and Lillian Webb of Sebring, will be
honored today at the Florida Department of
Elder Affairs Ambassadors for Aging Day
in Tallahassee. The duo earned their
awards at the 2004 Florida Senior Games
State Championships held December 4-12
in The Villages.
Carothers, 61, lit up the scoreboard at the
basketball competition while Webb, 90,
was a dual-sport athlete competing in bowl-
ing and field events at the track and field
competition. They were selected among
2,983 athletes, a record number of partici-
pants in the 13-year history of The Games.
Webb totaled five gold medals winning
gold in three bowling events (singles,
women's doubles and mixed doubles) and
the shot put and discus events of the track
and field competition.
She averaged a 157 score in three games
to win the 90-plus singles bowling gold
medal with a three-game total of 472. She

m W pM-


won the women's doubles with Evelyn
Gooding, also of Sebring, and mixed dou-
bles with Palmetto's Carl Laubach.
Webb holds women's shot put records in
the 80-84, 85-89 and 90-94 age groups. Her
record throw of 13 feet, 5 inches in the 90-
94 age group, set in 2004, is six inches bet-
ter than her 85-89 age group record of 12-
feet-ll set in 2001.
At the 2004 Florida Senior Games State
Championships, Carothers won three gold
medals in all three basketball shooting
events in the 60-64 age group and was a
member of the gold medal winning
Clearwater Aces 60-plus basketball team.
In three games en route to the 2004 Florida
Senior Games State Championships gold
medal, Carothers averaged 41.6 points per
game for the Aces.
With their gold medal-winning perform-
ances, both Carothers and Webb qualified
for the 2005 National Senior Games to be
held June 3-18 in Pittsburgh, Penn.

fly ball was dropped due to a
collision in the outfield, tying
the game at 5-5.
Then Smith proceeded to
pull the magic carpet out from
under the Lady Devils' feet,
striking out the next two batters
to get out of the inning, and
then retiring the next six in a
row three on strikeouts to
finish with 11 to keep Avon
Park from scoring another run.
"It seemed like we were
swinging for the fence or
swinging for something," Cobb
said. "We weren't doing what
we should have."
Frostproof leadoff batter
Yahtea Benton used her speed
to score the game-winning run
for the Bulldogs in the top of
the sixth. She bunted for her
third single of the game, went
to third on a steal and an error
and scored on Brittani Thomas'
groundout.
"We had a good year," Cobb
said, calling his Devils a tough
team. "They came from behind,
but tonight we fell a little short.
They had a good season.
Overall, this was a very good
team, a well-mannered team
and I was proud of them."


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
LeRoy Sanders had a 595-pound total to finish second in his weight
,class at the state meet in Gainesville.

some reason he weighed in the
next day a pound and a half
over, and he just couldn't lose
it."
Hickman hated to see'
Medina, the team's lone senior;
go out without getting his
chance at state.
"It would have moved us up;
because he would have finished
third," the coach said. "It's a
shame. I just was upset for
him."
Nonetheless, Hickman is
optimistic about next year, and
is pleased with the way his
team responded to adversity
this year, "especially the way
we had to start the year off;
because we were lifting on the
stage, and out in the hall, and
everywhere we could because
we didn't have our weight
room," he said, citing the hurri4
cane damage.

was number two in teen births
10 years ago. It is now 12th and
moving downward. Smoking
and alcohol are down with chil-
dren engaging in both at an
older age. The incidence of
drugs has been reduced also.
This program followed the
one originated by Governor
Lawton Chiles, who successful-
ly sued the tobacco industry and
won $11 billion to aid those vic-
timized by tobacco products.
The Students Working Against
Tobacco ads helped to reduce
smoking by middle school stu-

appropriated.
The workshop was most
instructive and organized.

Keep Shrimp



Fresh

Delicious and easy to prepare, shrimp is a traditional
Florida favorite. Many Publix stores offer both fresh
and frozen varieties, so keep these pointers in mind
when handling and storing shrimp at home.

Thawed or fresh shrimp should be firm and free
of strong odor.

Shrimp may be refrigerated up to two days from
the time of purchase.

Shrimp may be frozen up to one month, but never
refreeze previously frozen uncooked shrimp.

Upon your request, the Publix Seafood
department will gladly steam or devein your
shrimp.










Where shopping is a pleasure.
