training module in Sebring. According to Highlands County Emergency Management Director Bill
Nichols, the Haz-Mat team also was learning to move heavy concrete using leverage and a technique
known as shoring, which is taking an unsafe opening and reinforcing it. This is the fourth of five
modules that the team must complete before becoming a state-certified light technical rescue team.
The team has already completed rope rescue, confined space and trench rescue. The final will be a
vehicle extrication at the end of May.

SEBRING Highlands
County Fire Services and
Hazardous Materials Team got
a real workout Saturday as it
finished up its three-day build-
ing collapse training module.
The team had to simulate
going in through concrete
walls to look for survivors in a
"collapsed building." It's the
.fourth-of five ph.ses of urain-
ing b\ Safety Solutions Inc.
This phase started on
Thursday. The final training
will be vehicle extrication.
Fire Services Specialist
Charles Andrews said trainers
had them go in through an
exterior wall of the rear stor-
age building behind the old
Schwan Industries building on
Highlands Avenue just next
door to the former Central
Florida Glass & Mirror busi-
ness.
Since the county bought it
for right of way for the
Sebring Parkway, it made a
good training ground. Crews
had to break through concrete
black walls with air drills and

the holes with four-by-four

could enter the building.
Stan Sussina, instructor
with Safety Solutions Inc.,


said he and his fellow instruc-
tors packed the storage build-
ing with furniture and debris
to simulate an actual situation,
then they encased the debris
with "tunnels" of plywood to
prevent any natural light from
getting in. Trainees had to rely
on artificial light.
$ Sssina planned to fill the
tunnels ~ ith artificial smoke,
to simulate actual smoke and

and search and rescue teams
had trained in operating off a
tower, working a trench col-
lapse, working in a confined
space and handling a col-
lapsed building.
Andrews said the instruc-
tors, in addition to working for
Safety Solutions, are members
of the United Search and
Rescue Task Forces. They
have specialized equipment to
train local search and rescue
teams on looking for victims

in collapsed rubble, similar to
that of the World Trade Center
in 2001. .

raduating from South
Florida Community
College has become a
family affair for Nadine
Slaughter's family.
"When I was getting ready
to register my daughter,
Amber, at South Florida
Community College, I
thought I might give college a
try, too," Nadine Slaughter
said.
The 40-year-old resident of
Wauchula graduates
Wednesday from SFCC with
an associate in arts degree in
social work. Three of her
children will attend the com-
mencement ceremonies.
"I was married when I was
18," she said. "I had four
children, one right after the
other. My parents didn't go to
college, and I'm the only one
of my brothers and sisters to
graduate from college."
But a college education has
become a family affair. ,

daughter, Amber's, wedding.

Amber graduated from SFCC
last year, and Slaughter's son,
Frankie, graduated from
SFCC in December 2004.
"Frankie is working toward
a bachelor of science degree
in criminology at the
University of Florida,"
Nadine said. "He wants to be
an FBI agent."
Nadine' s daughters,
Savannah and Karrissa, attend
Hardee High School and are
taking dual enrollment classes
through SFCC.
"Savannah's graduating


from Hardee High School on
May 21, and she starts at
SFCC in fall 2005."
Nadine began her own col-
lege career in May 2002 and
faced some challenges.
While attending classes
full-time at SFCC, she went
through a divorce, worked
full-time at Wal-Mart, and
became a work study student.
But her diligence got her
through the tough times.
She was inducted into Phi
Theta Kappa, an honorary
society that recognizes the
academic achievement of
two-year college students and
provides opportunities for
growth and development in
leadership, service and fel-
lowship.
"It meant a lot, especially,
because Amber had been a
member," she said. "I thought
my chances were slim to
none. To get a letter that I'd
been inducted was great."

ence and her close relation-
ship to her children influ-
enced her interest in social

AVON PARK If
Highlands County wants quali-
fied workers, business and edu-
cation may need to work
together.
Educators also may have to
work harder with at-risk stu-
dents. At present, there is an
estimated 30 percent of stu-
dents who do not graduate with
their class.
That number frustrates Jim
Ladd of Sebring, who worked
'as a counselor for 10 years at
Lake Placid High School. At-
risk students need the most
help, he said.
Allie Ford, a senior at LPHS,
said students she's seen equate
future jobs to their life in
school.
"If the morale of the school
is low, then they think their job
will (stink)," she said..
Friday's three-hour round-
table session at South Florida
Community College sought to


forge connections between
business and education to solve
this problem. About 35 people
from education and local busi-
ness gathered to discuss the
issue at a roundtable session,
titled "Strengthening the
Connection,"' hosted by both
the Highlands County
Economic Development
Commission and the college.
Friday's session had students
involved fpr the first time to
give deeper insight into how
students can move smoothly
from the classroom to the work-
place.
Courtney Harris, a Sebring
High School senior, said stu-
dents need better understanding
for worlung in a particular field
before they will feel comfort-
able pursuing it, but that infor-
mation isn't available.

Highlands involved


in study on scams


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun.
SEBRING The Highlands
County Sheriff's Office is one
of a number of Florida law
enforcement agencies that has
offered to help with a Stetson
University study on crime and
the elderly.
It's part of a yearlong project
dealing with. elder consumer
fraud.
"We're looking at scams that
are targeted specifically at eld-
erly people," said 'Stetson
University. of Law Professor
Rebecca Morgan, who is con-
ducting the study.
Reportedly, it's the first of its
kind in thetUnited States. As
part of the program, Morgan
said there is a public education
element.
"We have people who are
going to different senior cen-
ters, churches and places like
that," she said. "They are giv-


ing speeches on how the scams
work and how they might be
able to protect themselves and
means to get help should they
be a Nicum." .
They also are educating pro-
fessionals such as law enforce-
ment andprosecutors on how to
build a. case against perpetra-
tors.
"Because we're a la'\ school,
we have that ability. For exam-
ple, we can train prosecutors in
how to deal with those who
might have, say, memory prob-
lems," Morgan said.
The other part of the program
is research, and that is where
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office comes in.
"Highlands County stepped
up to the plate right at the
beginning. They said 'We are
going to help you with this. We

Pet Pride

contest runs

through May
LAKE PLACID St.
Jude Children's Research
Hospital announced today
that Nancy Davis of Lake
Placid Feed & Western in
Lake Placid has agreed to
conduct a "Pet Pride" con-
test through May 31 to
benefit the hospital.
This event was devel-
oped by ALSAC/St. Jude
Children's Research
Hospital to offer the
nation's millions of proud
pet owners an opportunity
to help less fortunate chil-
dren afflicted with cancer
and other catastrophic dis-
eases.
The "Pet Pride" contest
heightens awareness and
raises funds to continue the
hospital's programs of
research, patient care and
education. Cancer remains
the leading disease killer of
America's children, St.
Jude Children's Research
Hospital its largest and
foremost adversary.
Thanks to similar fund-
raising efforts, over 20,000
children have been treated
at St. Jude Hospital since
1962. All costs of care
beyond those reimbursed
by insurance are covered
by us. Monies generated
play a critical role. The
research efforts of scien-
tists at the hospital have
produced new medications
and treatments and indis-
pensable to the saving of
young lives. With the
results of research freely
shared with hospitals, doc-
tors and investigators, chil-
dren treated for cancer are
often beneficiaries of St.
Jude's efforts.

Children's Advocacy Center Executive Director Jeff Roth signs an inter-agency agreement Friday after-
noon along with other key members of the county to show support for the center in Sebring.


Groups gather to renew vow


to Children's Advocacy Center


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Officers repre-
senting 17 different public serv-
ice agencies gathered at the
Children's Advocacy Center
Friday afternoon torenew their
commitment to the facility.
"The focal point of the advo-
cacy center is to coordinate and
collaborate between all the
agencies who are involved in
services to abused children,"
Highlands County Children's
Services Executive' Director
Jeff Roth said. "That includes
the investigative side, the pros-
ecution side, the treatment side
and so forth."
Representatives of those
groups came together and inked
a new agreement to support the
Children's Advocacy Center.
There were a lot of new faces
from the original assembly that
came together seven years ago.
"Everybody that signed the
original document. other than
Kevin ,Roberts,' .-,s dilfTeenit.
People have retired., beeto ilusi-
signed, been promoted or other-
wise moved on," Roth said.
Noting that April is Child
Abuse Prevention Month and
because the CAC is being reac-
credited for the first time since
its inception in 1998, Roth


decided this would be the per-
fect time to bring together all
the executive directors for that
purpose.
"We wanted to, make sure
that we all still are on the same
page, that we still have a com-
mitment to work together for
the best interest of the chil-
dren," he said.
And, said Roth, there are
plenty of new pages to be on.
S"The protocol that our agree-
ment refers to has grown expo-
nentially from the first docu-
ment we produced," hle said.
"We have really honed down in
detail the processes we use and
who is responsible for what."
That includes such things as
detailed a methodology on case
review, rules on how intake is
done, plus procedures for inter-
views and medical exams.
The accreditation will be per-
formed by the Washington-
based National Children's
Alliance.
Formerly known as the
National Network of Chilgren's
Advocacy Centers, it is a
nationwide not-for-profit mem-
bership organization whose
mission is to promote and sup-
port communities in providing
coordinated investigation and
response to .victims of severe


child abuse.
The group accredits all of the
CAC organizations throughout
the country.
Highlands County's CAC
first was accredited in 1999,
when the NCA was in its infan-
cy. Roth said the on-site visit
by an NCA delegation will be
sometime in August. But this
time, he said it would be vastly
different from the first. ,
. He suggested the standardi-
zation of the process is a good
thing' inasmuch as all the
Children's Advocacy Centers
nationwide now are measured
by the same set of rules.
That didn't mean any whole-
sale changes to the CAC's oper-
ation, but Roth said there have
been some modifications.
"We had to tweak some
things but we have been acting
pretty close to the manner of
best practices for the NCA, we
just didn't have the protocols
written down," he said. '
Now-they-have being commit-
ted to paper and officialf tlie
17 affected agencies sat down,
looked them over and agreed on
the plan.
"Now we have all the agen-
cies signed off on it and we're
ready for the site visit," Roth
said.

AVON PARK While the
city council continues to strug-
gle with ways to speed the code
enforcement process, there
could be some answers on the
horizon.
Vice Mayor Sharon Schuler
brought the subject up yet again
at last Monday night's city
council meeting, noting that
"Evidence of Community
Pride" had been listed as one of
the top negatives at the recent
week's visioning session.
That was done as a joint ven-
ture of the Avon Park Chamber
of Commerce and the
Highlands County Economic
Development Commission.
"We're always discussing
this but their hands are tied,"
said Schuler, referring to
municipal employees who have
been trying-to enforce the city's
statutes.
Schuler said she wanted to
find a method that Avon Park
Code Enforcement Officer
Donald Simmons could work
with to get better results.
Council members held a dis-
cussion with Simmons, Fire
Chief Terry Feickert and Police
Chief Frank Mercurio in an
effort to determine what could
be done legally. That boiled
down to a discussion about the
city's right of entry versus a cit-
izen's right to privacy.
However, it became clear to
some council members that the
problem might not be so much
finding violations, but taking
care of the ones that currently
exist.
It was Councilman George
Hall who began asking what
could be done to speed the
enforcement effort once a vio-
lation had been determined.
The council instructed City
Manager C.B. Shirey to look
into the possibility of hiring a
special master to resolve code
enforcement infractions. The
idea would be to use that form


of arbitration to settle more
code enforcement cases more
quickly.
Shirey has been working on
the problem, first, by obtaining
a copy of a job description from
Port St. Lucie, which lays out
the duties and responsibilities
for such a post.
"They call it a special magis-
trate there," Shirey said. "A
magistrate has to be a member
in good standing of the Florida
Bar and their legal practice has
to be substantially in the area of
administrative government,
zoning or real estate law."
The idea would be to move
the hearings out of the county
court system and under the
jurisdiction of the city. In the
past, the code enforcement
effort has had no more than a
half day a month for the dozens
of pending infractions.
"The benefit of having a spe-
cial master or a special magis-
trate is when we have a notice.
to appear we can set how often
he needs to hear cases," Shirey
said.
That could run into money,
however, it might not have to
be paid by the city. The charge
for the hearings could be tacked
onto the overall assessment,
putting the cost onto the person
or entity cited for the violation.
Increasing the cost of the'
fines also was suggested as a
method to achieve code compli-
ance and another facet of the
task Shirey has been research-
ing.
"We're looking to see if this
falls under the same kind of
rules as the code enforcement
board uses where they actually
can set a daily fine or if it is
under the rules of the civil cita-
tion where the maximum fine is
$500," he said,
Shirey is preparing all the
information for a packet that is
scheduled to be ready in time to
be discussed again at the next
regular Avon Park city council
meeting, set for May 9.

Police t

V Highlands County report


Nolen charged

with illegal
contracting

duping an

emergency
LORIDA Between
September and October 2004,
during the hurricane season, a
65-year-old man suffered
damage to his roof and
unknowingly hired an unli-
censed contractor.
While having pool work
done at his house Oct. 18,
2004, the elderly man dis-
cussed the damage with
another contractor, who intro-
duced him to Christopher Ray
Nolen, 29, of Avon Park.
Nolen said he was taking
over his grandfather's roofing
business and was interested in
taking the job. He said he was
a licensed contractor, but
according to complaint affi-
davits, he wasn't, but provid-
ed a copy of a Highlands
County occupational license.
The man paid Nolen
$2,750, and started the job the
next day, Oct. 19. He did not
finish the job, however, and
as a result, the man suffered
more damage to his home.
The entire incident took
place during the state of
emergency imposed by Gov.
Jeb Bush, which makes con-
tracting without a license a
third-degree felony.
Nolen was charged under
warrants for two counts of
contracting without a license
during a state of emergency
and one count of grand theft.
Bail was set at $1,000.

Hernandez

charged with


deputies that Hernandez had
arrived at her house earlier
that day asking for the victim,
angry because he had been in
contact with his family. The
witness told Hernandez to

He returned at about 10
p.m. and got into the house
with a metal pipe. The wit-
ness said she told Hernandez
to leave, but he wouldn't, so
she called the victim and told
him she would come and get
him.
While she and the victim
were walking toward the car,
Hernandez allegedly
approached him and threat-
ened him. Reports state that
Hernandez cursed the man
and then pulled out a knife
and continued to walk toward
him. The man jumped in the
car, drove home and called
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office.
Deputies found him later
that night walking down the
street where the house was.
He fled on foot. A K-9 unit
tracked him and he was
arrested.

Action to follow vision in city


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK They began
with workshops, they then
made a presentation to the city
council, last week there was a
community wide visioning ses-
sion, now they plan to take
some action on their findings.
Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director
David Greenslade called a spe-
cial chamber board meeting for
Thursday in an effort to keep
things moving..
"We didn't want to wait until
our next regular board meeting.
We figure that we have some
momentum going and we didn't
want to lose it," he said.
At the special session, com-
mittee chairs were assigned and
a new slogan was created. He
termed it the next phase of tak-
ing the bull by the horns when it
comes to the development of
the City of Charm.
"Our new motto is 'Avon
Park Pride," Greenslade said.
But it's more than pride.
Greenslade explained the term
.also is an acronym.


"It stands for Preserve,
Restore, Invest, Develop and
Educate," he said.
At last week's visioning ses-
sion there were four of the 20
clues to rural community sur-
vival developed by the
.Heartland Leadership
Development that citizens in
attendance determined needed
to be worked on.
There were sign-up sheets
made available for those who
wanted to volunteer to serve on
action committees that would
work on strengthening of the
positive points and abating of
the negative ones.
"We have four action com-
mittees and we want each of the
committees to come up with
suggestions and ideas," he said.
Thursday, they assigned
committee chairmen to lead the
respective units in their mis-
sions.
Councilman George Hall
will head up the community
pride group.
The strong belief in and sup-
port- of education conlmittee
will be led by Jerry Whidden.


He is the chamber president this
year and works for Heartland
National Bank.
A committee for an emphasis
on quality in business and
emphasis on community life
will be chaired by Jeff Mechlin
of Sprint.
For the fourth committee,
Lisa Davis of River Greens
Golf Course will take the chair
for the group dealing with will-
ingness to invest in the future.
"The committee that George
Hall has is the largest with 20
members. We're going to split
that up into smaller, subcom-
mittees to work on specific
parts of their overall plan," he
said.
Greenslade said to keep the
process in motion, chairmen
have been asked to have organi-
zational meetings of their indi-
vidual groups within the next
two weeks.
"We're not going to tell them
their plans or how to attack it,
we just want to see them get
together to start the process," he
said.


Ordered to trim

records fees
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Preston Colby
got most of what he requested
Thursday in a lawsuit against
Highlands County.
He had sued the county to
view certain public records and
to keep the county from charg-
ing for those records in
advance.
Circuit Court Judge J. David
Langford said whatever may
have been the confusion, Colby
did not receive the records he
wanted, so the county should
make the original documents
available. Langford awarded
Colby court costs and legal fees
for the lawsuit and restricted the
county from charging anything
more than actual costs for
pulling and copying records.
Langford also would not
allow the county to include
employee benefits -, 30 per-
cent of the hourly wage in
the staff time to look up
records.
"I feel very vindicated,"
Colby said. "I am quite pleased
with the ruling."
Langford denied Colby's
request to remove Highlands
County Public Information
Officer Sarah Hopton from
office. She was named in the
lawsuit along with the county
commission, County
Administrator Carl Cool, and

Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols.
The lawsuit came out of a
pre-hurricane season meeting
on April 20 at the Emergency
Operations Center where Colby
learned about the "Hurricane
Executive Decision Group."
Assistant County Administrator
Tom Portz,
who testified
on behalf of
,^i the county
Thursday, said
h- that name was
a "poor choice
of words on
COLBY our part." The
group consist-
ed of heads of county depart-
ments and local organizations
that met last year for conference
calls with the Department of
Community Affairs, Division of
Emergency Management, on
approaching hurricanes.
They neither discussed the
calls nor made decisions as a
group, Portz said.
On April 20, Colby asked
Hopton for minutes from the
group. He wanted to see origi-
nals first, then get copies. He
later learned from Portz he
would have to pay a deposit
first on an estimated cost of
$65.12, based on four hours of
staff time at $16.28 per hour to
pull the records.


Colby called it extortion: A
charge of money not due,
before it's due or in excess of
what's due. When he told
Hopton that wasn't his request
and the charge was wrong, she
allegedly said, "If you don't
like it, sue me."
Hopton, not present at
Thursday's hearing, told the
News-Sun that she said charg-
ing for making copies was "the
answer I had for him, and if that
answer did not satisfy him, he
could take it up with the
courts."
Colby said he never had the
opportunity to view the original
documents. On April 22, he met
with Ross Macbeth, county
attorney, who had photocopies
of notes from the group meet-
ings and change from Colby's
original deposit for records.
Without viewing the originals,
Colby didn't know if these were
actual records.
Colby calls the county's pol-
icy of charging an hourly rate
for any request that takes more
than 15. minutes .is unconstitu-
tional. If he discovers that the
Hurricane Executive Decision
Group made decisions on what
to do during the hurricanes, he
wants them prevented from
meeting without giving proper
notice.

Classes offer tips on
everything from deck
building to creative
painting techniques
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Home Depot
has one of the best-kept secrets
in town.
Throughout the year it makes
certain associates, who are
experts in their fields, available
for demonstration classes,
which are free of charge to any-
one who wishes to attend.
While these classes are
sometimes replaced, there is a
core group of classes that run
more or less continuously. A
large display board by Home
Depot's main entrance lists the
month's classes, along with the
days and the times they are
'held.
-- For people who are organiza-
tionally challenged, there is a
class on organizing closets. For
gardeners, there are classes on
lawn maintenance and creating
outdoor living spaces.
Want to learn how to build a
deck? There is a. class that
shows how it's done.
Want to lay a ceramic tile
floor? There's a class for that,
too.
As well as one on "faux"
painting, which is comprised of
the techniques painters, use
when they create the illusion of
stone, for example, or marble


with the use of paint.
There is also a Kids
Workshop on the first Saturday
of every month at 9 a.m. All
children are welcome, and all
supplies are provided by Home
Depot. Each month, children
make a different item, things
like picture frames, pencil cad-
dies, or wheeled toys, which
they can take home.
Gerard Jones runs the
demonstrations on faux paint-
ing, but don't bother calling
him by his name. "I am not a
Jerry," he said with a grin. Call
him "G".
Whatever his name, he
shows the clueless, with humor
and skill, how to turn a flat sur-
face into a wall with depth and
texture.
Jones explained the need to
mix glaze with paint, and how
to choose a base color and
'accents. He demonstrated the
rag-on and rag-off technique,
color washing and how to work
with a sponge (that's a real
sponge, the sea animal not a
cleaning artificial one).
He described how a friend
had cut up cabbages and used
them to stamp paint on the wall.
He said it looked wonderful,
but had taken four or five cab-
bages to do one 8-by-12 foot
wall because the cabbages kept
falling apart.
His point was to be inven-
tive, and not to be scared. He
said the worst time is when
someone has begun, but can't
yet visualize the final result.


Too often, Jones lamented, peo-
ple will give up mid-job, and
just paint their work over with a
flat finish. They don't have the
confidence to see the job
through.
Have courage, he said, and
don't give up in mid-stream.
Better yet, come and see him,
so you can have fun through the
experience.

where they have a lot of real estate they can
transform and they don't have that
here," he said.
In Atlanta, Loy said, it might be a differ-
ent story. However, he said at this point
Sebring might not be at the bull's eye of
their concern.
There is some new development coming
to the mall. The Roadhouse Grill is sched-
uled to begin construction on one of the
mall outparcels later this summer.
A young woman's clothes shop, Linda
Forever, also is scheduled to move in at the
mall in the near future.
Loy also cited one of his stores that is
preparing for a renovation project.
"We're waiting for the final drawings to
come back on that one," he said.
As to other new, mainstream stores, Loy
said that kind of development is a long
process.
"I always say that if leasing a shopping
center was easy, everyone would do it," he
said.
At his previous job in Charleston, S.C.,
Loy said moving leases was a long and
sometimes cumbersome process.

"It takes months, even years sometimes,"
he said. "It's fairly easy to get a local per-
son to lease space because they know the
market. It's tougher when they don't live
there and can't see the potential."
Like many people, Loy is very much
aware of the commercial and residential
construction both planned and under way in
the area. However, communicating the bur-
geoning development is not necessarily an
easy task.
"Unfortunately, when I talk with a
national or regional retailer, they look at me
as trying to sell the best points of the area,
and they could be looking at national statis-
tics that may not have caught up with what
we see here every day."
One of the statistics that does not help is
the age demographic. Loy said of the 70
malls in the CBL chain, Highlands County
has the highest average age.
"There's nothing wrong with that, it's
just that a lot of national retailers that are
focusing on leasing space in mainstream
malls are shooting a little lower than what
our typical age is here," he said.

Heartland National helps Habitat


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Heartland
National Bank truly showed its
heart this past week by spend-
ing two days hammering out a
home for a Habitat for
Humanity family.
The Marilyn ,Evans family
will have a simple decent home
this fall thanks to Heartland
National, the first bank in the
county to completely sponsor a
Habitat for Humanity house,
which costs $39,000 to build.
The bank is contributing sweat
equity as well.
Heartland National Bank has
been in existence in this county
for five years. During the con-
struction, volunteers will come
from its branches on U.S. 27 in
Lake Placid and Avon Park,
along with the Sebring branch
at U.S. 27 And Howey Road.


The newest branch in Sun 'N
Lake will also join the fun of
getting out of the office for a
day and building a dream for a
family in need of a healthy
home.
Jim Belflower, executive
vice president of Heartland
National Bank, was asked why
they chose to do this project.
"This community has been
good to us and we are glad for
this small opportunity to give
back to the community and give
this family a better way of life,"
he said.
The workers from the bank
have included James Belflower,
executive vice president;
Andrew Bible, vice president
and commercial loan officer,
and Gene Polk, vice president
and Lake Placid office manag-
er. They spent the day erecting


interior walls and installing
dead wood, which makes the
house more stable before the
inspector comes.
Belflower enjoyed his day on
a Habitat site, even as his paper
work piled up at the office. He
said, "I enjoy the pleasant
change and enjoy working with
people who have their heart in
the right place. If you come out,
(to the 'work site) you will want
to become involved."
Call 453-9695 or the con-
struction manager Alan Ball at
443-0510 for a current work
schedule.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity salutes its volun-
teers and thanks Heartland
National Bank for this tremen-
dous gift to this community. To
check the progress, drive by
816 Memorial Drive in Sebring.


APCI helps with Habitat construction


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING 'As Highlands
County continues to experience
a population explosion,
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity presses forward by
building a trio of affordable
houses in Sebring.
The homes are on Memorial
Drive and all three are being


sponsored by area businesses.
All three companies will work
on their respective homes along
with other local volunteers
from the community.
Seven men from Avon Park
Correctional Institution are
completing the framing on the
last home in the trio. The super-
vising officer said, "The men
really enjoy the learning that
comes from a program like this.
Many don't have carpentry


experience but they are willing
to learn and they work hard."
Habitat for Humanity is
grateful for community partner-
ships such as these because!
many of the seasonal volunteers
have gone north but the need
for affordable housing remains.
If you have a free morning
and would like to learn more
about Habitat for Humanity
please call 453-9695.

SEBRING Members of
Chris Goggins' family remain
by his side at Tampa General
Hospital as he recovers from a
motorcycle accident.
In the meantime, activities of
Support continue for the 29-
year-old Sebring man here in
Highlands County.
"We just want to thank
everybody in the community
for everything they have done
for us," said Larry Goggins,
Chris Goggins father.
There has been monetary
support for Chris Goggins from
some local organizations.
Members of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office, where
Larry Goggins is a sergeant,
have contributed. Some of
Chris Goggins' co-workers at
the Wal-Mart also have been
doing some fund-raisers to
help.
There also have been some
individuals who have given to
the fund.
"Donations have been com-
ing in to the bank account that's
been set up for Chris," Larry
Goggins said.


An account in Christopher
Goggins name has been set up
at Highlands Independent Bank
for those who wish to con-
tribute.
An event that is still being
planned is a benefit motorcycle
run by the American Legion
Riders.
"He's former military and he
was riding a motorcycle," said
Florida National Guard Sgt.
John Vincent, who is a member
of that group.
The plan is to have a motor-
cycle run that would begin at
Wal-Mart at the intersection of
U.S. 27 and Schumacher Road,
then through Highlands and
perhaps some other counties,
then wind up back in downtown


Sebring as part of the monthly
Second Saturday Nite Cruise.
"We haven't firmed all the
plans up yet, but we'd like to
help this young man."' Vincent
said.
More important than the
money are the prayers that have
gone out in Christopher
Goggins' name.
Christopher Goggins was
injured on April 20 when his
1985 Honda motorcycle
slammed into the side of a sport
utility vehicle at the intersec-
tion of Desoto Road and
Commerce Center Drive.
"He's in a coma but he's sta-
ble," Larry Goggins said. "He's
moving his left hand a little bit
and that's giving us hope."

The gift my mother gave


me-peace of mind.













My mother has a beautiful home and friends in a community that she
loves but not a lot of income. Recently, she told me that she gifted her
house to the Ridge Area Arc Foundation through a Life Estate Gift
Annuity. It is very similar to a reverse mortgage in that it uses her
home to create income, but this way she can ensure she and Daddy
will always be remembered. I remember thinking not what a gift my
mother has given her community but rather what a gift my mother is
to her community.

Sebring schools win money from Kash N' Karry

Helps School Program to go to the school.


Don Strickland, manager of Kash N' Karry, (left) hands a check for
$2,761 to Christopher Doty, assistant principal at Sebring Middle
School, to go to the school.


SEBRING This school
year Cracker Trail Elementary
and Sebring Middle School
were the very fortunate recipi-
ents of proceeds from Kash N'
Karry's "Helps School
Program" which ran last year
from Sept. 4 through Dec. 4.
Kash N' Karry sponsors a
contest each year in which each
school in Highlands and other
counties may participate. The
store issues a special receipt for
each participating product pur-,
chased. These receipts were
collected by Julia Neweill, who
is the coordinator for Box Tops
for Education at each school,
during those dates and turned
into Kash N' Karry's main
office.
This year the store held a
contest to see which schools
collected and turned in the
most receipts. A bonus prize of
an extra $1,000 was awarded to
each of the top 20 schools. Out
of about 300 schools registered
in the state, according to Don
Strickland, Cracker Trail won
fifth place in the state with a
total of $2,820 and Sebring
Middle School came in 20th in
the state with a total of $1,761.
This was Sebring Middle
School's first year of participa-
tion in this program.
By coming in fifth and 20th
in the state, each school earned
an extra $1,000 bonus. This
brought the totals to $3,820 for
Cracker Trail and $2,761 for
Sebring Middle School.
This money is to be used to
purchase much needed equip-
ment for each school.

Jammin' at the

Country Jamboree
Students at Lake Country
Elementary School in Lake
Placid got a treat on Friday when
they gathered outside for the
Country Jamboree. Students
from each grade performed for
the school and participated in
games of skill, such as the fourth
graders (above) performing a line
dance to the song 'Wild, Wild
West' and the fifth graders (top
photo at right) treating the
student body to an alien
encounter while line dancing to
'Cotton-Eyed Joe.' The teachers
got into the action, too,
performing a line dance of their
own to the delight of students
Makeyla McGahee and Jorge
Montoya (bottom photo at right),
who clapped their hands and
stomped their feet to the music.
Teachers also staged a water
balloon-tossing contest (below)
in which each teacher had a
partner, and they threw water
- balloons back and forth. After
each toss, the teachers had to
take another step away from each
other with the goal being to not
break the balloon.

In fact, Dine said it was the

To get firsthand experience,
Nadine became certified as a

six to 10 hours per week.
"I'm a voice for children in
the court system," she said. "I

said. "I thought if something
comes out of this project that
will benefit our citizens and
give our detectives more tools,
so I wanted to jump on the
bandwagon."
Dine said the bottom line is
that the study is trying to find
how much consumer fraud is
being conducted against seniors
across the entire state.
Moreover, Dine explained the
program will collect numbers
and demographics to better
define the problem.
"We want to know what
types of consumer fraud are
being perpetrated and in what
areas. We want to find out who
are the people who are commit-
ting the crimes? Are they local'?
Are they related? Are they care-
givers? Plus we want to deter-
mine what crimes are being
committed where," she said.
Once that information is
determined, it will make it easi-
er to judge what kinds of educa-
tional and preventative pro-
grams will be the most effec-
tive.

"If the parents aren't taking
care of themselves, they're not
taking care of their children,"
she said. She indicated that
through a court order, parents
may be sent to classes in par-
enting, anger management,
drug abuse, or sometimes for
random drug testing.
"When parents accomplish
those requirements, get a
steady job, have a place to live,
and can provide a good home
environment, then reunification
with the child is the next step,"
Nadine said. "Everything goes
through the courts. I'm
appointed to a case by the
court."
After graduation, Nadine
returns to SFCC to pick up
some business classes. "I also
want to get a degree in busi-
ness so I can start working at
any level." She plans to contin-
ue her education at the

"There is a very small niche

didn't know how to pick class-

to go to college because of my
ignorance."
"I would tell any prospective
student to just come in and ask
for help. Tell people at the colr
lege that you're new to this,
and don't be satisfied until you

How can education



and business connect?


"I believe they had a problem
with the travelers down there in
Highlands County not too long
ago," Morgan said.
Travelers, sometimes called
gypsies, come into an area and
offer to fix roofs or driveways
at bargain prices. They do
largely cosmetic work, which
generally falls apart after a few
weeks.
By that time they, and the
money. are gone.
Part of the effort will involve
looking through law enforce-
ment complaint and arrest
records.
"The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office actually is
helping us by telling us how
many reported scams there have
been as are all the law
enforcement agencies we are
affiliated with," she said.
And that is more than just
police departments.
"We're also working in con-
nection with state agencies like
the office of Florida Attorney
General Charlie Crist. They do
consumer related issues as
well," Morgan said.


work closer together.
Schools must:
Reach out to the at-ris k
students who are struggling and
lend guidance on developing
those students' skills;
Work harder with stu-
dents' parents, especially in
middle school, to begin map-
ping a career plan for each stu-
dent;
Enroll students in techni-
cal applied sciences classes at
SFCC, as well as academic
classes, to focus on training for
a vocation; and
Work closely with busi-


nesses to arrange schedules so
students can participate in
cooperative education.
Businesses must:
Connect better with high
school programs, including
internships and cooperative
education;
Adjust schedules to help
workers take full advantage of
education opportunities;
Continue to offer college
scholarships; and
Develop a customer serv-
ice model and share it with

TOmFFN9 IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

It's a

beginning;

not an end
My mother, Dixie Alexander
Engesser, was a pistol.
Married to a man who took
her on overseas adventures,
she first worked as a teacher in
New Jersey, and wound up her
career as the founder and
director of an English lan-
guage elementary school in
Caracas, Venezuela.
She was born in 1920, the
year American women voted
for the first time, and lived
through the depression and
World War II.
Shortly after the war, she
moved with my father to
Berlin. Shells of buildings still
stuck, skeleton-like into the
sky, and Americans could buy
crystal and bone china with
cartons of cigarettes.
Later, she protected her
three children through a white-
hot South American revolu-
tion, buried her husband much
too young, and saw her
beloved son die before he was
40.
All of this is to explain why,
in the spring of 2004, when
she was diagnosed with multi-
ple cancers at the ripe old age
of 83, and was told she was in
for the fight of her life, she
declared that no, this was it,
thank you very much she
was plum out of tussle. It was
time to make room for others.

? -It is your right to lose money,


. but not ripped off by a swindler


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Red's Fishing Tackle owner Don Norton uses a rod wrapping machine to build a custom fishing rod
recently in Avon Park.



Red's Fishing Tackle




reels in business


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The serious
angler will find everything at
Red's Fishing Tackle.
Owner Don Norton was vice
president of sales and market-
ing for Marriott Senior Living
Service for 20 years. Living in
Avon Park for nine years, he
noticed that this area was badly
in need of his type of business.
"I'd been a custom rod
builder for 30 years starting
out in my garage. I can wrap
them in your favorite colors;
place your name on it, or a date.
There can be a special message
or 'Happy Birthday,' even a
Bible verse. It makes a great
Father's Day gift," Norton said.
Norton offers rod, reel, and
electric motor repair. And there
are 10 types of live bait and
fresh and saltwater tackle. More
than 200 fishing rods, and 100
reels, both spinning and casting
are carried. He stocks the popu-
lar Boner brand rods and appar-
el. Also, there jre Shimano,
Berkley, Fenwick, Falcon, Abu-
Garcia and G. Loomis rods.
Yum, Falcon, Redneck,
Charlies, and Wave Tiki-worms
are stocked.


There's gear for crappie,
bass, bluegill, catfish and
striped bass, plus a good selec-
tion for saltwater fishermen
going after snook, redfish, sea
trout, and flounder.
"My wife, Lexie, has 35
years experience as a silk florist
and there's even a section for
her arrangements. We also carry
gifts for fisherman, like sun-
glasses and matching watches.".
He can even take fishermen
out on trips.
"I'm also a professional bass
fisherman and run a bass guide
service, sometimes going 50-60
miles, but mostly to Lake
Istokpoga and Lake Walk-N-
Water. For $250, I take two
people on a four-hour trip. Live
wild shiners are included (a $40
value,) sandwiches, soft drinks,
and all the gear you could pos-
sibly use. You only have to
show up. There's no need to
bring anything," Norton said.
. In the fall. at South Florida
Community College,; Norton
teaches "Fundamentals of
Fishing and Advanced. Bass
Fishing" for eight weeks at $56.
He also gives seminars on rod
building and fly tying for resi-
dents of various housing com-


munities.
"It's a natural, since I was in
the senior housing industry,"
Norton said.
For those who like to com-
pete, Norton offers contests.
"We offer a Big Bass Contest
each month for the biggest
catch getting a $25 gift certifi-
cate. For the year, the winner
gets a five-foot trophy, a $500
gift certificate, and a $300 cus-
tom rod. The entry fee is $10.
So far, monthly winners were:
January 12 pounds, February -
11 pounds, and March 10.10
pounds. I believe there are huge
.bass in this area which is a boon
for tourism," Norton said.
His family helps with the
business.
"My daughter Amy also
works here plus a new addition
to our family: Red, a six-pound
American bulldog. He's our
guard dog, although he's not
very threatening right now,"
Norton said..
Red's Fihing Tackle is at
1001 U.S. 27 South. It's open
from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday and 7 a.m. to 3
p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call
453-7337 for additional. infor-
mation.


There are no 100 percent
guarantees with any invest-
ment, only varying degrees of
risk. In America you have the
right to make bad investment
decisions. In fact, you can make
good decisions and earn thou-
sands or lose every cent you
own and no one will interfere.
However, you should never be
intentionally misled into mak-
ing a bad investment by some-
one who financially benefits
from your investment. That's
why state and federal securities
laws carry severe penalties,
including huge fines and/or jail
time for securities fraud.
Recognizing the red. flags of
fraud can minimize your
chances of being swindled.
First, don't be impressed or.
invest on impulse because
someone tells you they have
inside information. Instead, you
should be concerned because
there are laws against making
trades on insider information.
Remember the Martha Stewart
case? It was initially alleged
that Stewart used inside infor-
mation provided by her broker
to unload shares of ImClone
Systems stock just before
shares in the company tumbled.
Although she was eventually
convicted of a different crime, it
was insider trading allegations
that launched the investigation.
Be leery of investments that
provide unusually high rates of
return. Crooks usually offer
more than the going rate on
bank cds or the average return
on stocks and bonds. It is a ploy
to convince you to invest. They
believe you will be greedy and
fall for the "something for noth-
ing" ploy. Charles Ponzi, the
infamous 1920s swindler who
perfected the rob Peter to pay
Paul scheme commented on
this human tendency in his
autobiography.
"People gambled with me as
I thought they would. They
gave me ten dollars as a lark.
When they received 15 at the
end of 45 days, all sense of cau-
tion left them. They plunged in
for all they were northh They
brought their friends along. The
legion of my investors grew by
leaps and bounds. Each satis-
fied customer became a self-
appointed .salesman. It was their
combined salesmanship, and


not my own, that put
the thing. over. I
admit that I started a
small snow ball
down hill. But it
developed into an
avalanche by itself."
Here's another.

END

peace, she told us, she was
eager to go.
My sister and I knew she
had earned the right to make
that decision, no matter how
much we might regret it.
Worse, we knew it was the
right thing to do.
So we called Good Shepherd
Hospice.
Actually, we went to our
mother's primary care physi-
cian who wrote out a prescrip-
tion for hospice care. It's the
prescription which starts the
intake process, and the use of it
is a telling metaphor.
Hospice care is palliative.



HOSPICE
Continued from 13A
are covered by Medicare,
Medicaid, Tricare, and most
private insurers. Community
donations enable Good
Shepherd to provide services to
those without financial
resources.
McIntyre points out hospice
care is a calling, not a job, the
most important rewards are
spiritual.
Sadly there is a crying need
for nurses and social workers
with a hospice specialty. While
the work can be emotionally
draining, and requires special
certification, salaries reflect
those facts.
Good Shepherd Hospice has
scheduled a grief support group
to teach ways to deal with grief.
It will be from 10-11 a.m. every
Thursday from May 12 through
June 16 at Fountain Funeral
Home, 507 U. S. 27 N., Avon
Park. Registration is required.
The telephone number is 402-
1066.
Good Shepherd Hospice is at
4418 Sun 'N Lake Blvd.,
behind the new Florida
Hospital Cancer Center.
For more information call
402-1066.


That is, it eases and .soothes,
without trying to cure. It makes
a higher quality of life possi-
ble, right at a time when life is
most precious.
Whether the issue is pain
management, housekeeping,
insurance or fear, the hospice
team of caregivers helps
patients and their families cope
with the end-stage of illnesses
or chronic conditions.
Because of that, too many
people shun its help, looking
on hospice as an evil omen or
surrender. That's too bad,
because what I have learned
from personal experience is
that hospice is more of a
beginning than an end; but
what it marks the beginning of
life without a loved one.
This transition is painful, but
necessary and if done con-
sciously, and whole-heartedly,
it can create a rich store of
warm, wonderful, healing
memories. Memories which
will sooth in the future.


I now remember how I then
sat opposite my mother, as she
read in a pool of light by a
darkened window every night.
I can see her tilted head, the
book in her hands, and enjoy
the comfort of her presence.
But I can only do that, have
those precious minutes to
remember, because everything
else had already been done.
It was my sister, Gael
Engesser, who saw my mother
was properly fed, cleaned,
made comfortable and admin-
istered her medication.
Oh, I helped, but it was Gael
who ran the errands and signed
the papers and 6aked the pro-
tein-rich, just for Mom,
muffins. Even she, however,
couldn't have done what she
did all by herself.
Whatever we needed, hos-
pice got whether it was a
wheelchair, medication, or a
shoulder to cry on.
Not that I availed myself of
their services there are

many ways to grieve and it
turns out I'm in the "keep too
busy to think" category. I bare-

names; my sister can tell you
about their families.
We sometimes forget how
natural death is, it's happening
too soon or too violently, too
much of the time but a
peaceful passing at the end of
an eventful, successful life, is
something to be wished for and
wanted.
Hospice helps make that

AARP Florida introduces hurricane recovery video


Following one of the Most
active and devastating hurri-
cane seasons in Florida's histo-
ry, AARP Florida wants resi-
dents to know that it is deeply
concerned about the health,
safety and well being of older
Floridians.
Almost every county in the
state was impacted by hurri-
canes Bonnie, Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne. Many counties
will be struggling to get things
back to normal for the next few
years. AARP Florida has been
busy working to provide a posi-
tive impact upon those who
have been adversely affected
and are still recovering.
So AARP Florida is offering
"After the Storm," a disaster
recovery video for residents to
better prepare for storms in the
future and help them in the
aftermath with tips on safety,
basic subsistence, major home
repairs and reconstruction. This
video provides consumers with
information on how to contact
local and state authorities, relief
agencies and repair services.
With these issues in mind,
AARP is providing this con-
sumer video to help residents
with the resources and assis-
tance they may need, as well as
advice on how to protect them-
selves from unscrupulous indi-


viduals or businesses that may
attempt to take advantage.
The free video comes in VHS
and DVD format and is avail-
able at AARP Florida chapters,
senior centers and libraries
across the state. For more infor-
mation and locations where
"After the Storm" can be found,
visit AARP Florida's Web site
at www.aarp.org/fl,
AARP Florida also has
developed a special publication
related to disaster recovery
which provides important toll-
free numbers for information
and assistance on issues like
price gouging, insurance prob-
lems, senior services, consumer
problems and more. This publi-
cation.also provides fraud pre-
vention advice so that those
impacted don't become victims
of disaster related scams. This
publication can be accessed by
visiting the Web site listed
above or by calling the state
office toll-free telephone num-
ber at (866) 595-7678.
With more than .2.7 million
members in Florida -- and 36
million nationwide AARP is
a nonprofit nonpartisan mem-
bership organization that helps
people 50-plus have independ-
ence, choice and control in

Is it a case of

hypocrisy?
Editor:
It sounds hypocritical to me,
you can fight to take prayer out
of our schools.
You can fight to take "One
Nation Under God" out of our
pledge of allegiance,
You can fight to take the
"Ten Commandments" out of
our schools and government
buildings,
You can fight to take
"Christmas and all Nativity
Scenes" out of our buildings
and our lives,
You can fight to take "In
God We Trust" from our cur-
rency,
But you can't fight to help an
innocent man, Juan Claude
Meus, from being railroaded
into a 13-year prison sentence,
because of an accident, or is it
because he is black?
If this isn't hypocrisy, then
please explain to me, exactly
what is it?
Thank you, but I do not sup-
port hypocrites. I support jus-
tice.

More attitudes

than principles
Editor:
Liberals may think of them-
selves as people who believe in
certain principles but, if you
observe their actual behavior,
you are likely to discover that
most liberals, have a certain set


of attitudes, rather than princi-
ples.
Recent liberal denunciations
of federal intervention to over-
ride Florida law in the Terri
Schiavo case were made by the
same people who supported
recent federal intervention to
over-ride the laws of more than
a dozen states, when the
Supreme Court banned the exe-
cution of murderers who were
not yet 18 years old.
You can count on the same
liberals to cheer if the federal
courts over-ride both state laws
and referenda opposing gay
marriage. It is not the principle.
It is the attitude.

Beware of tax,

even quiet one
Editor:
"Growth does not pay for
itself.", is a truism that has
been ignored by our elected
and appointed decision makers
in these many years.
As a result, a new 1/2 per-
cent sales tax is being proposed
by our school administrator,
with the tacit approval of coun-
ty commissioners. In addition
to the 1/2 percent tax increase,
waiting "in-the-wings" is a tax
on electricity (a "utility" tax),
something that has been floated
softly across the radar screen of
dozing taxpayers. If you have
been following some of the
Tallahassee shenanigans lately,
you can smell a tax increase
coming down from our state
legislators, with the quiet OK


for the governor.
All taxpayers on fixed
incomes, especially those who
are "just making it" should
oppose further tax increases,
especially the one being pro-
posed, because for one, we
would be endorsing the
visionlesss" view of a school
administration who should
have lobbied for impact fees
years ago, instead of running
around as Chicken Little
screaming that the sky is
falling!
Impact fees are fees paid by
homes built after the fees go
into effect, homes built that
would not be subject to the fee.
There were 2,375 building per-
mits (single families) issued in
the period from 2001 up to and
including 2004. If a nominal
impact fee of $2,000 had been
in effect, $4,750,000 would
have been collected! That ain't
chicken feed!
There is no question that our
children need as good an edu-
cation as can be provided and
just because you don't agree
with a school administration
that chose to ignore all the
growth signals, does not make
you an uncaring citizen. On the
contrary, you care enough to
ask for alternatives to another
burdensome tax, depleting your
hard-earned nest egg.
Speaking of eggs; there is a
bird named "Cowbird". This
bird will remove eggs from a
small bird's nest, lay one of its
own in the nest, fly away and
the poor little bird is left to
hatch the large egg and feed
and take care of the hatching as

LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware


Rib-room

Animals do funny things
sometimes. Some of their
actions seem to be beyond our
feeble understanding. Occa-
sionally it seems contrary to
their continued survival.
Let's take Jazz for example.
Jazz, one of three iguanas that
live in my home, lives in
James' room, a hazardous envi-
ronment to be sure.
This lizard is totally depend-
ent on James for his food,
water, and heat. Also, com-
pared to Jazz, James is huge
and probably a lot stronger.
So given this situation, you
would think that Jazz would be
pathetically grateful that this
big human takes care of all his
(we think it's a he) needs. You
would think that somewhere in
that tiny brain it would occur to
him that were James to get
ticked off and boot his lizard
rear end out into the wild, Jazz
would be in some animal's
digestive tract before he real-
ized that chopped zucchini and
squash.did not exist in the wild.
Instead, Jazz has made it his
life's aim to try to kill James.
Anytime my son tries to pick
up the iguana, Jazz expresses
his outrage with teeth, claws
and tail. He has been known to
lunge at the front of the cage,
which makes feeding him a
minor adventure. The official
term for this is "aggressive."
The unofficial term is "trying to
bite the hand that feeds you."
Not smart.
Speaking of weird and detri-
mental animal behavior, I want
to bring the toads that live in a
pond in Hamburg, Germany, to
your attention.
These toads have picked up a
strange and for them, fatal ten-
dency it seems that at times
they suddenly and for no appar-
ent reason bloat up and
e.xplode. :-,
According to news reports;'
:.more .than 1,000 toads .have!
succumbed to this condition..
Scientists who have studied the
phenomena are baffled they
cannot find anything about the
toads or the pond water to
explain why they have sudden-
ly become little amphibian
bombs.
One scientist was quoted as
saying that "This phenomenon
really doesn't seem to have
appeared anywhere before."
One local environmentalist
likened it to a scene from a sci-
ence fiction movie. All anyone
can figure to do about the situ-
ation at the moment is to warn
people to stay away from the
pond.
So is this puzzling to anyone
else? Imean, one or two toads
exploding would be strange
enough, but you' could maybe
figure that some toad got a hold
of some soda and chugged it
down, and the bubbles in it
caused them to swell and pop.
(No, I don't have to prove that
I'm a columnist, not a scien-
tist. I don't have to deal with
reality if I don't want to).
But 1,000 toads? That's a lot
of Dr. Pepper.
I have also wondered if this
was something adolescent
toads were doing just to show
how cool they were to the other
adolescent toads. Of course it is
a stupid thing to do ("hey guys,
look how big I can blow up"
BOOM!) but a lot of what
teenagers do to impress each
other isn't genius material. I
can even imagine a mother frog
croaking to her young one, "If
all of your friends puffed up
and blew up, would you too?"
Perhaps these frogs are being
recruited by Osama Bin Laden,
who is running out of people as
we dismantle his terrorist net-
work. You have to be pretty
hard up to resort to frog
bombers.
We need someone to investi-


gate this carefully. Someone
who has made a career of deal-
ing with strange things which
explode for no apparent reason.
We need Dave Barry to come
out of retirement!
I'll contact him after I make
sure Jazz hasn't eaten James.

A look back at a

special man

Editor:
Ford W. Heacock Jr. built a
legacy of wisdom, honor, toler-
ance and fairness with his wife
Benni and passed it on to his
children, grandchildren,
nephews and nieces.
Ford was a politically con-
servative man, but matched
himself with a wife born and
bred from one of the most lib-
eral families in Sebring and in
that, they always struck a bal-
ance. In their home, discus-
sions were open and free, and
laughter was frequent.
The front door appeared to
be more of a revolving door as
the children grew up. There
was always room for one.more
at the dinner table, or at family
fun night or swapping stories
around the fireplace.
Holidays were a great occa-
sion. Ford, who had taught his
family to hunt, always "brought
home the bacon," be it a turkey
for Thanksgiving or a hog or
venison, snook or snapper, har-
vesting what Florida provided
in the wild. He, too, was a mas-
ter chef. The family always
knew to call Ford for the best
recipes.


There was often music and
theatrics in the air at the
Heacock home. Ford, himself,
passing the art of storytelling
and practical jokes on to his
progeny. Music and dance grew
from that.
There was a gracious hospi-
tality with Ford and Benni as
they hosted dinners for Boy
Scouts, church functions,
bridge games, family reunions,
business dinners, receptions
and holiday gatherings.
Ford was a father who pro-
vided every skill he had and
could provide, to assure his
children an education and a
strong work ethic. Each worked
alongside him in his office
growing up and some still
remain at the agency, carrying
on with the drive, fairness and
gentility that he was so well
known for.
Ford's strength in the com-
munity was known by his deci-
sive actions. Ford's strength in
his family was known by his
love, expressed in a quiet, gen-
tle manner.
We are a blessed people;
who have known Ford and
been a part of his life.

Several help in

hurricane drill

Editor:
Highlands Regional Medical
Center recently staged a very
successful hurricane prepared-
ness drill at the Sebring
Regional Airport. The drill is
performed at least once a year
by the hospital to ensure that
we are trained in the event we
need to fly patients in or out.


While the drill is routine, it
does take a collaborative effort
by many individuals and agen-
cies and we would like to thank
several people for their part.
We would like to thank
HRMC's highly trained staff
including Jennifer Forde,
Sherry Maiel, Tammy
Darthard, Annie Haynes, Fazia
Khan, Vicki DeRenzis, Monica
Lang, Shirley Bristol, Mark
Sager, Clarice Fuentes, Nagi
Dorsey, Yvonne Hensley, Dan
Dianand, Debbie Canning, Joe
Grant, Gene Fontaine, John
Hicks, Greg Sutton, and
Michelle Moore.
The hurricane drill would
also not have been possible
without the assistance of the
Sebring Regional Airport,
Highlands County EMS, North
Carolina Air National Guard,
Monroe County EMS,
Fisherman's Hospital, Kim
Bassett and the Lower Keys
Medical Center and the Key
West Rescue.
Thank you again to all of
these individuals for continuing
to help us train to better serve
our patients in their time of
need.

Avon Park Youth Academy


gets full ACA accreditation


Administrative thanks


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It's official,
the Avon Park Youth Academy
has achieved accreditation from
the American Corrections
Association.
Although they passed their
preliminary inspection earlier
this year the final word came
just last week in Boston when
Academy superintendent Pete
Zeegers finished the final inter-
view with the board.
"You have to go in front of
the American Correctional
Association's Executive
Committee and they ask you
about your program," Zeegers
said. "They want to see that you
know what you're doing."
In presenting the award,
Chairman of the Commission
on the Accreditation for
Corrections Robert Garvey and
President of the American
Correctional Association
Gwendolyn Chunn comple-
mented Zeegers and his staff for
the "professional level of oper-
ation and their success in com-
pleting the accreditation
process."
"They made comments like,


it was the most innovative pro-
gram that they'd heard of," he
said. "They'd heard our name
but they weren't familiar with
the details of our program."
In its February review, the
academy pulled 98.9 out of 100
possible points, missing only
four of the potential 450 stan-
dards for which they were grad-
ed.
Work has started on two of
the three standards that were
missed and plans are being
made to correct a third.
"We need to construct some
sort of pavilion for outdoor
recreation during inclement
weather," Zeegers said.
Plans are to use the residents
of the facility to do that con-
struction.
Another deficiency has been
the lack of dental care for the
residents. That is something for
which Zeegers has both short-
term and long-term solutions.
"We have the mobile dental
health care unit coming out here
every two weeks in connection
with the folks over at Central
Florida Health Care," he said.
However, for the long term,
Zeegers wants to see an office

He said constructing the
office facility would be the next
step. He already has some of
the material to put inside.
"Dr. Ronald Owen donated
literally thousands of dollars
worth of equipment to us. I
mean there's an X-ray machine,
a chair, desks, cabinets and a lot
of machinery," he said.
Zeegers said the accredita-
tion process is a good one, com-
pelling the academy to look at
its shortcomings and then to
make the necessary adjust-
ments.
"Really, it's the kids that ben-
efit in the long run; it helps us
to strengthen ourselves," he
said. -
Because it passed the accred-
itation, Zeegers said inspectors
will not be out again for anoth-
er two years and 10 months.
Because of that Zeegers said
it would allow the academy to
look at launching some new
programs, including the addi-
tion of some skill programs.

Blue tarps being phased out


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID It's bad
news for homeowners with hur-
ricane damaged roofs that have
not yet been repaired; or who
have discovered that what
appeared to be minor storm
damage, has become serious.
FEMA will no longer pay to
have a roof blue tarped, nor will
insurance companies unless
a company is in a dispute with a
homeowner, and there has been
a delay in the money settle-
ment. Otherwise, if a tarp has
shredded, or its 'fasteners come
loose, it will be up to the home-
owner to bear the expense of

replacement, which will typi-
cally cost $300 to $500, if, that
is, a roofer can be found willing
to take the time to put a tarp on.
Russell Hinkle, general man-
ager of Spiegle Roofing in Lake
*Placid, advises homeowners to


either file a claim with their
insurance company, or seek out
a loan, or some kind of assis-
tance, and get the roof fixed or
replaced. He points out any-
thing else is only delaying the
inevitable.
"If you have damage to your
roof, it's important to call your
insurance company," he said.
"You have 12 months from the
date of the last hurricane to ini-
tiate a claim, it's not too late.
And it doesn't matter how old
your roof was," he added, "The
age plays in the favor of the
owner sometimes. Make a com-
prehensive claim, it won't
count against you. Insurance
companies can't raise their pre-
miums by individual, only by
area.
"And keep in mind, that
(newer) rain damage may be a
continuation of, the first claim
for lost shingles."


The Highlands Emergency
Recovery Operation, a non-
profit group, made up of repre-
sentatives from 18 'different
social service agencies and gov-
ernment organizations, has
been formed to help local resi-
dents deal with hurricane relat-
ed damage, including emotional
distress.
HERO has an office at 501 S.
Commerce Ave., with nine
employees on staff ready to
help a homeowner find a reli-
able roofer, or obtain a loan or
assistance.
HERO is open from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Its telephone number is 402-
6941.
Spiegle Roofing is at 3 Lykes
Road, just off U.S. 27. It is open
8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 12
p.m. Saturday. The telephone
number is 402-0080.

Hancock Citrus tops Elks


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Two big innings are
better than one.
That's what Hancock Citrus proved
Saturday morning, using a seven-run
second frame and an eight-run third to
pull away from the Elks, who scored
seven runs in the bottom of the second,
and remain unbeaten with an 18-9 win.
Hancock Citrus (7-0) held a slim 3-2
lead heading into the bottom of the sec-
ond before opening the game up. Lauren
Eures got things going when she walked
with one out and came all the way
around the score following a wild pitch
and a throwing error. After walks by
Dino Lower and Erin McGlinchy and
Heather McIntyre's infield single, win-
ning pitcher Amanda Grimaldo ripped a
low liner up the middle and legged out a
two-run double.
Lauren Welborn capped the rally with


a two-run single to center, putting
Hancock Citrus up 10-2.
But the Elks (1-3-2) rallied in the top
of the third on seven walks, a wild pitch
and Kiara Mora's liner past the third
baseman that drove in two runs. Carly
Hoffner forced in a run when she
reached on an error and Kaylee
Woodcock, Taryn O'Bannon, Alexis
Myers and Allison Hoffner all walked in
runs before the inning ended due to the
maximum 11 batters coming to the plate,
making it a 10-9 game.
Hancock Citrus responded with eight
runs in the bottom of the inning to open
up a big lead before the game ended
under the league's time limit. Tiffanie
Rushing, Eures and Crystal Grimaldo all
walked to load the bases and McGlinchy
followed with another walk to force in
the first run of the inning. McIntyre fol-
lowed with a two-run single to left and
Brittany Whittington cracked a three-run

Hancock reached on an error and later
scored on another error to make it 18-9.
The Elks took a 1-0 lead in the first
when Carlee Hill walked and scored
when Mora's fly ball to center found the
turf.
Hancock Citrus came back with three


runs in the bottom of the first when
McGlinchy walked and later stole home
and Amanda Grimaldo hit a run-scoring
triple to deep center and scored on a wild
pitch, but Carlie Alexander walked and

Duke fans

16 in win


for Big T

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKE PLACID Perhaps
Buddy Duke should get sick
more often.
Despite suffering from a
fever for most' of the day, the
big left-hander for undefeated
Big T Tireman of Avon Park (3-
0) racked up a very healthy 16
strikeouts in the process of
throwing a two-hitter Friday
night in a Dixie Boys game at
,the Lake June Complex in an
11-1 win over Dragon Drywall.
Duke was overpowering
almost the entire game, but at
no time was he more impres-
sive than in the fourth and fifth
innings. While in the process of
striking out eight batters in a
row, Duke needed just nine
pitches to retire the side in-the
fourth and only 10 in the fifth.
"I have two different fast-
balls, and when one isn't work-
ing I use the other one," Duke
said. "Both of them were work-
ing and my curveball was
working all night."
Logan Smith singled for
Dragon Drywall (1-4) in the
bottom of the first to drive in
Shane Stayer, tying the game
after Big T's Joel Cuencas sin-
gled in the top of the first and
stole his way around to score.
But Duke shut down the
Dragon Drywall bats after that,
not allowing another hit until

FORT MYERS Despite some ques-
tionable umpiring, Sebring took third-
ranked Riverdale down to the wire Friday
night in the District 14-4A championship
game before the Lady Raiders scratched
out a run in the seventh inning to win 2-1.
Both teams advance to the regional
playoffs, with Sebring traveling to
Bradenton Bayshore (15-8) on Thursday,
and Riverdale hosting Palmetto. Bayshore
(15-8) won the District 13 title with an 8-
1 victory over the Tigers on Friday.
The game was deadlocked in a 1-1,
pitchers' duel heading into the bottom half'
of the seventh inning when Riverdale sen-
ior Alli Halverson reached
Rv l base on a bunt single.
2 Halverson broke for second
and came sliding into the
Sebring bag and the field umpire
1 called her safe despite the
fact that Sebring catcher
Chastity Godfrey had the
ball waiting in the glove of shortstop
Kristin Salinder.
It appeared that Salinder applied the tag
in plenty of time, but the official awarded
Halverson the base.
Meagan Mossholder then scooped up a
grounder, checked Halverson at second
and threw to Priya Patel at first base for
the first out of the inning before freshman
Courtney Carter, hitting in the No. 8 spot,
delivered a solid single to left field to
drive in Halverson to end the game.
There were a, few tears spilling from
Sebring's dugout after the game, but for
the most part the players and coaches
know now that they can play with any-
body.

Nighttime the right time for unbeaten Heartland National


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Publix shortstop Kevin Welborn can't quite make a diving catch Friday night
in Avon Park.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK It was like the difference
between night and day.
When the sun was still in the sky, Publix
held leads of 3-0 and 4-3, but once it was
dark, Heartland National Bank took control
for a 13-7 victory in a battle of unbeatens
Friday in Dixie Boys action at Avon Park.
"At the beginning of the game they just
stand around and expected the game to come
to them," Heartland head coach Kevin
McIntyre said. "They just think they're
going to win when they walk on the field.
They found out today they have to partici-
pate in the game to be successful."
Heartland (5-0) turned the game around
with three runs in the third, four in the fourth
and six in the fifth and a solid outing in relief
from Chad Marley (1-0), who gave up two
earned runs on three hits in 3 2/3 innings for


the win.
McIntyre also credited starting pitcher
Evan Danzey, whose first outing was marred
by two errors that helped Publix (3-1) score
three second-inning runs.
"What I told Evan was, he pitched good
enough to win the game, if they'd have
played defense in the first two innings,"
McIntyre said. "So he suffered through their
struggles. Chad came in, and everybody set-
tled down and played a good game behind
him, so he did good."
Danzey was able to do some damage at
the plate, going 2-for-4 as one of three
Heartland players to wind up with multi-hit
games. Leadoff man Terrell Conner went 3-
for-5, and Marley was 2-for-3 with two
RBIs, one of which came on a bunt hit that
brought home the first Heartland run of the
game.

STREAKS
Continued from IB
"I'm real proud of that,"
head coach Lee Tolar said of
Sebring's effort.
"You look at that infield and
there's four sophomores and
one freshman. We took it to
'em. I'm proud of Kendall
(Carson), she pitched very well
and we got really good defen-
sive play from Kristin
(Salinder), Jean (Gose), Priya
(Patel), Jessica (Cooley) and
Jeanna (Haines).
"We also got good offensive
play from Jessica Cooley (2 for
3), Kristin and Kendall.
"I'm so proud ... these girls
have nothing to hang their
heads about. Riverdale played
well and did what they had to
do in the end. They played like
the No. 3 team in the state."
Before all the seventh-inning
heroics took place for the Lady
Raiders, the drama-filled game
was filled with exciting plays,
potent hitting and power pitch-
ing.
Riverdale (24-3 overall) took
the early lead when Holly
McChesney walked with one
out and scored to put her team
up 1-0 on a single by Melinda
Jones.
Sebring (12-14) was able to
stay in the game because of
Carson's pitching and strong
team defensive play and
evened the score in the top of
the fourth.
Cooley opened the action
with a double up the middle
and scored standing up when
Salinder lined a double over the
center fielder's head.
Jones, Riverdale's only play-
er with more than one hit, dou-
bled off Sebring freshman third
baseman Kayla Dunn and
moved to third on Heather
Roszell's sacrifice bunt in the
fourth.
Dunn had no chance at the
sharply-hit line drive that car-
omed off her and into foul terri-
tory along the fence in left
field. Carson then struck out
the next two batters to end the
threat.
""Carison went the distaifce for
the Blue Streaks, giving up
both runs on five hits while
striking out eight Raiders.
Sebring also squandered a
golden scoring opportunity in
the top of the fifth when Carson
led off with a double to left
field. Chelsea Vickers laid
down a perfect sacrifice bunt to
move Carson into scoring posi-
tion at third, but Raiders' right-
hander Samantha Price got a
strikeout for the second out and
Haines flew out deep to right
field to end the half inning.
Price, a junior, got the pitch-
ing victory, giving up one run
on five hits and three strike-.
outs.

Yet Kevin McIntyre turned to

was extinguished with 1 1/3

Now, with first place firmly
in Heartland's grip, the coach is
seeing his team's talent all
come together.
"We had eight players return

good .players come in this
year," McIntyre said. "We're
sitting pretty good this year."

Greed gets fresh look


Image isn't everything. It's
the only thing.
Nothing short of a motto
that is the forced philosophical
mutation of Vince Lombardi
and Andre Agassi could prop-
erly put in perspective the
madness that is sports culture
today, particularly when it
comes to the symbols it uses to
represent itself.
Logos nowadays aren't
time-honored insignias that
have stood the test of time, nor
are they simply graphic repre-
sentations of whatever nick-
name a team has chosen for
itself. Sports emblems are first
and foremost big business, and
the market is dummies like us.
The University of Tennessee
recently unveiled a host of new
"secondary" logos, six of them
to be exact (a link to the
release unveiling the new
logos can be found at http://
utsports.collegesports.com).
Surely, none of them will help
the Vols learn how to beat a
Steve Spurrier-coached foot-
ball team, but if UT can't reach
the pinnacle of college foot-
ball, they can at least reach the
heights of consultant-jammed
foolishness.
The school hired not one but
two design firms, which only
seems fair, since coming up
with six different variations
using the color orange, the
words "Tennessee Volunteers"
and a drawing of Smokey the
dog seems like an awfully tax-
ing amount of work for just
one group of illustrators.
Yet whatever work these
firms are doing must be noble
indeed. Heaven forbid a school
be caught with outdated sec-
ondary logos, as administrators
feared, or, horror of horrors,
not have any at all.
The six symbols, three for
the men's teams and three for
the women's, replace an old
Smokey mark, a logo that
incorporates Davy Crockett,
and a star design. Going
nowhere, of course, are the pri-
mary.T logos for both the
men's and -nomen's teams,
unless, of'course, the new, ,
.'cOmpeiinti e; Smokey decides


TIME OUT
Chuck Myron


he wants to chew on one of
them.
The university "fully
explored Smokey as part of the
Tennessee tradition," as it said
in its release, and so in addi-
tion to the "competitive"
Smokey, a snarling, and per-
haps rabid, depiction of the
hound, there is also, as the
school calls it, "dignified"
Smokey, who looks kind of
like "competitive" Smokey on
proper medication.
Then there's youth Smokey,
who looks innocent enough,
but he's sticking his tongue
out, which is no doubt sup-
posed to be pointed in the
direction of none other than
Spurrier himself. Remember,
kids, it's the soft, quiet logos
you have to watch out for.
After all, there are no doubt
plenty of youths in Tennessee
who are going to want the new
"youth" Smokey on their back-
packs, T-shirts, cups, and any
other merchandise that can be
overpriced with a stamped-on
logo.
No matter how much, or
how formally, flaks babble on
about updating an image,
Smokey, in all his different
poses, is really more about
updating a bank statement.
But don't tell that to anyone
willing to shell out $34.99 for
that new "competitive
Smokey" polo shirt, for sale
now at www. VolMall.com. You
wouldn't want the person feel-
ing as pass as Davy Crockett,
would you?

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Focus on lovely
I've heard tell of how a
concert pianist searched for
one face amidst the capacity
crowd at Carnegie Hall.
When he saw his elderly,
boyhood teacher in the bal-
cony, he smiled, bowed and
sat down at the piano.
A palpable hush came'
over the hall.
The pianist began to play
and thrilled the audience
with his performance.
At the last note, the audi-
ence rose as one to its feet
shouting, "Bravo!" He
bowed and smiled and was
ready to play an encore
when he chanced to look up
in the balcony where his
teacher was sitting.
It didn't matter that hun-
dreds had stood in acclaim.
The one he wanted to please
most had not stood with the
others. The pianist was
crushed.
Though wounded, he
played the encore like the
professional he was.
Perhaps you've experi-
enced something like this in
your life. I know I have.
Your expectations are high,
but come crashing down
quickly when someone dis-
appoints you. Try as you
might, it doesn't matter how
many others care and
applaud. The absence or crit-
icism of one is more con-
spicuous than the attendance
and acclaim of all the others.
Having "been there, done
that," two truths have
become gentle, guiding
lights to handling disap-
pointment before it. sets in.
First, we need to play,
sing, dance, entertain or
whatever it is we do to
please God. with-ourtalents.-
Pleasing him never.di4ap- !
- points and brings his reward.
Secondly, if we look to
what we have and not what
we lack, the inroad of disap-
pointment will be cheated.
Focus on the hundreds who
stood, not the one who did-
n't; on thelO who came, not
the 20 who didn't.
In this way, those who
come will not be cheated of
our best performance or hos-
pitality because of a poor
attitude. They deserve every
bit of our best if even only
one guest. This is your
divine appointment that God
has orchestrated.
Look for the pearl in
every situation. The Apostle
Paul gives us these words of
encouragement.
"Finally, brothers, whaev-r
er is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right,, whatever
is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable if
anything is excellent or
praiseworthy think about
such things, and the God of
peace will be with you."
(Philippians 4: 9, NIV)
The pianist's hopes were
certainly understandable, but
misplaced tarnishing the
celebration surrounding him.
It may even be that the eld-
erly teacher had reason why
he could not physically
stand. It was the "Master
Teacher" the pianist needed
to satisfy.
When God's servant,
Stephen, was martyred, he
looked up to heaven just
before he died. There he saw
Jesus, standing at the right
hand of God. Jesus Christ is
the audience of One whom
we need to please. It is his
greeting of "well done" that
matters most.
Think on the lovely.
Selah.

News-Sun correspondent
W whether bingo, beano or lo giuoco the game can
be traced back to 1530 when it was played every
Saturday in Italy.
From Italy it was introduced to France in the
1770s, where it was called "le lotto" and played
by wealthy men. The Germans also played a version in the
1800s. They used it as a child's game to teach students math,
spelling and history. The name is thought to have come from the
usage of dried beans to place on the cards.
When the game reached North America in 1929 it was known
as "beano." It was first played here at a carnival in Atlanta. A toy
salesman, Edwin S. Lowe, from New York overheard a player
yell "bingo" instead of beano. With the help of a professor from
Columbia University he increased the number of bingo cards. By
1930, they had invented 6,000 different bingo cards.
A Catholic priest from Pennsylvania increased its popularity
when he began using the game as a fund-raiser for its church. By
1930, an estimated 10,000 games were being played weekly and
today more than $90 million are spent on bingo each week in
North America, according to Mary Bellis, the author of
"Inventors, the History of Bingo."
Bingo is a big draw in Highlands County. One reason might be
because the county is one that ranks as having nearly the highest
percentage of senior citizens in the state of Florida, and in 2005
possibly the most. No doubt bingo's popularity is increased by
the prizes, the camaraderie, access to spacious rooms, food, park-
ing and friendly atmospheres. It also helps to know that the
money spent will be used to improve the life of others.
In Highlands County, there are more than 25 different sites for
bingo games. Players can find at least one site open for business
anytime during the week. Players at a site might amount to any
number from 20-150 or more per event.

Turning pain into promise, death into life


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment,' consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Keith's and Pamela's seemingly irra-
tional decision to cash in their 401K, buy
a motor home and travel the country for
six months, made perfect sense to them.
Keith had been in a motorcycle acci-
dent that caused head injuries requiring a
year of rehabilitation. Insurance ran out,
savings depleted and they lost their
home.
But that year, prior to the accident,
they also had experienced a devastating
pregnancy and the death of their little
son, Joshua. They felt like they were
drowning in a flood of emotions. Time
away would be their life preserver.
Hiking the Grand Canyon and diving
in the Keys was fun and therapeutic.
But, during this time they built on a per-


sonal, pivotal -choice
that ushered in heal-
ing, growth, purpose
while nurturing devot-
ed, marital love.
They had only been
married a few months
when Pamela discov-
ered she was pregnant.
Their children from
previous marriages
were grown. They
welcomed this surprise

pregnancy with joy.
At 41 and with Pamela's history of six
miscarriages in years past, the doctors
requested testing for abnormalities.
Knowing she'd never abort a child,
Pamela refused the test.
But a journey of personal testing for
the couple began. The pregnancy was
difficult. Each checkup instilled fear and
the warning to abort.
Waves of confusion threatened to
overwhelm until the baby moved within
her.
"I can't abort our baby who's moving
inside me," she cried out to Keith.
Keith supported her whole heartedly.
Even though they knew Joshua had been
diagnosed with Trisomy 13 a serious
birth defect of the chromosomes that is
incompatible with life; that he'd be still-
born or die shortly after birth they
finally convinced the doctors to stop
suggesting abortion.
Together he and Pamela turned to


God. And though they
didn't understand -
and Keith was not yet
firm in his faith -
somehow that simple
turning was pivotal.
Joshua "their little
soldier" fighting for
life, drew them closer
to the Lord. Keith saw
God in a new way; dis-
covering there was a
purpose for everything


and that the Lord's intents serve the
greater purpose.
Joshua was born prematurely and
lived only a couple of hours in his par-
ent's arms. That's when Keith was struck
as never before with God giving up his
own Son.
Keith knew he had to be true to God.
Keith's highly intelligent, Type A, driv-
en personality began to mellow. Then
only months after Joshua's death, while
riding his motorcycle to work, he was T-
boned by a car that ran a light.
Yes. Keith and Pamela questioned
God. Why would he allow their child to
be conceived, only to be deformed and
die? Why this accident?
But the glue of a growing faith was
stronger than their questions. God's
overall purpose was greater. Joshua's
brief life had drawn Keith to eternal life.
Each year on Joshua's birthday, they
celebrate that life and turn pain into
promise and death into life.

Dick and Jane, you
may be happy to know that they
were given a new lease on life
in 2000 with the release of "The
Storybook Treasury of Dick and
Jane and Friends."
"Storybook Treasury" is a
compilation of the primary
reader series "We Look and
See" (1940), "We Come and
Go" (1947) and "We Look and
Play" (1956).
The main characters are Dick
and Jane, their baby sister Sally,
their cat Puff and their dog
Spot.
The reprinting proved to be
so popular that Grosset &
Dunlap issued a second compi-
lation in 2004, "The World of
Dick and Jane and Friends." It


included "Guess
Who" (1951) and
"The New We Come
and Go" and "The
New We Look and
See" (1950).
./ /Mother and Father
were only occasional-
ly upset by the antics
of their beautifully
LINES dressed children.
Most of the prob-
lyn lems, as I remember,
?link came from baby Sally
-- and, naturally, Spot
and Puff, but even the
worst situations only elicited a
dismayed "Oh! Oh!"
No bizarre outfits, no bad
language, no run-down housing
yes, the world of Dick and
Jane was pretty, orderly, gentle
and well mannered. It was an
idyllic picture of a middle class
family who lived in the town of
Perfect. How we wished WE
lived there.
That's one reason libraries
are such a great place to visit -
because in stories we can visu-
alize perfection, whether it's a
perfect moment of joy, a perfect
sunset, the perfect scent of
Grandma's perfume, or the per-
fect sound of summer crickets.
You can relive some perfect


memories when you check out
the new photography state-by-
state series "24/7," issued by
DK Publishing.
The series came from its
best-selling books, "A Day in
the Life of America" and
"America 24/7."
Rick Smolan and David
Elliot Cohen created the "Day
in the Life" series. The new
series features all of the 50
states, and each one has its own
volume.
.The pages are filled with
photographs by amateur and
professional photographers, and
short explanations of each
photo. The photos were shot in
towns all over the state and are
organized into subject cate-
gories such as "Health and
Home," "Reasons to Believe,"
"Hard at Work," "At Play" and
"Our Town."
Even if you think you know
your home state, you'll discov-
er whole lot of diversity of peo-
ple, places and things you did-
n't know existed. Once you've
spent time with these books,
you'll know your home state -
and many others a lot better.
Each picture book begins
with a state lover writing about
his or her home state. Maybe
this is the state of Perfect turn


the pages and find out for your-
self.
At the Sebring Public
Library, we're working toward
perfect ourselves. The Sebring
Library is now offering

An inspirational thought

The following verses in the 461h,
chapter of Psalm give us words of
encouragement to remind us that God
is a place of security when all else is
insecure. He also gives us protection,
a % assurance, and comfort. Now lets take
a look at Psalm 46:1-7 and It
B 10. "God is our refuge and S..W
very present help in trouble. .ik
S'will not we fear, though the e
removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst
of the sea: Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
though the mountain shake withithe swelling thereof. There
is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of
God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God
is in the midst of her; she shall nt be moved: God shall help
her, and that right early. The L of host is with us; the God
of Jacob is our refuge. Be s i know that I am God: I will
be exalted among the heat ill be exalted in the earth."
We can have confidence in st of distress. How can we
handle a stressful situation iswer to that question is to
cease fighting against the Fi and instead to be at rest.
Your next question may can I rest in a stressful
situation? The above scrip s the Lord is a present help
in trouble. It also says be know that I am God. To
every situation we face, w e to find an answer in the
word of God. Apply God' to your situation and you
will be less stressful. Be E d!

Sebring High School students reviving Italian style of comedy


Everyone's a
swindler in
'Bamboozled'
By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Four hundred years ago
actors traveled the Italian coun-
tryside, setting up outdoor
stages and improvising fanciful
plays that they embellished
with juggling, acrobatics and
other amusements in a style
known as "commedia del-
I'arte."
On three dates next week, a
familiar cast of commedia char-
acters otherwise known as the
acting and directing students of
Kaerdi Arthur-McGovern will
be making mischief and may-
hem at Sebring High School's
Smith Center.
Artecchino, the harlequin,
Brighella, his smarter friend,
Pantalone, the miserly old man,


Columbina, the flirtatious and
desirable young woman, and
other stock commedia charac-
ters will be swindling and out-
smarting each other in Michael
E. Brill's modern commedia
play, "Bamboozled."
The play was first presented
in 1999 by Arthur-McGovern's
students, who call themselves
"The Wash Pin Players." The
theater teacher decided to
restage it this year partly
because she developed a pen-
chant for commedia dell'arte
while earning her degree in the-
ater, partly because her son
Dillon, a directing student of
hers, wanted to play the clown-
ish leading role.
The story line revolves
around the beautiful and con-
niving Columbina. Pantalone,
an irascible old man, wants to
marry her and has the money to
pay the stiff price her aunts are

his astonishing physique.
Complicating matters are
Artecchino, the harlequin, and

the residents out of their
money, although Brighella
secretly expects to relieve
Artecchino of his share of the
pickings.

Arthur-McGovern. "It's good
for all ages."

Woman's tongue tree is best avoided


Like its cousin, the
ear tree, the woman's -,
tongue tree (Albizia
lebbeck) is all over
Highlands County
and the surrounding
communities.
Instead of having
an ear-shaped seed-
pod, this tree has -
bean-like seedpods. GRO
Supposedly, when
the seadpods dry out SU
and the wind blows,
they make quite a rat- High
tling noise, which is County
how it came by its Gard
name "woman's -
tongue" years ago.
These trees grow to a height
of 50 feet and can become 3-4
feet in circumference at the
base of the trunk. Again, like
the ear tree, the woman's
tongue tree can become a night-

1


mare for a home
owner when it has to
be removed.
As it is a legume, it
creates.its own nitro-
gen from the atmos-
phere and is basically
a self fertilizing
plant.
If you would like
to see an ear tree and
a woman's tongue tree,
go north on U.S. 27
past Bank of America
in Sebring and turn
east on West Townsend
Street. You will see a
number of ear trees on


the north side of the street.
When you reach the end of
the block, turn right onto Anoka
Avenue and proceed to a curve
that turns back to the east. At
that curve, look for the tree with
the bean like pods it's a


woman's tongue tree.
If you have either of these
trees on your property, it would
be a wise move to remove them
or have them removed by pro-
fessionals.
