Working moms find ways



to balance work and family


By SUSAN FOSTER
News-Sun
A recent, national survey by
CareerBuilder.com showed only 38 per-
cent of working moms would take less
pay in order to spend more time with their
children.
Had the survey been conducted in Highlands County
the results may have been much higher.
Highlands County's working mothers o er\k helmirg-
ly agreed they would d like to spend more time with their
children. Surprisingly they have found some innovative
ways to help with family expenses and still have quality)
time with their children.
Twenty years ago, Jeanette White, of Sebring, began
babysitting other children so she could stay at home
with her two daughters.
"My husband said I hid to make as much money
babysitting as I would if I worked outside our home. I
babysat for four children and made the same amount. It
was worth it to be with my kids."
When her youngest child began school, White went
back to college and received her degree in education.
Working for the school board allowed her to keep a sim-

County officials


offer answers to


Washington Heights


Ask residents to

get involved with

city, county

government
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Washington
Heights residents want better
code enforcement, street lights,
sidewalks and police patrol.
That's why County
Administrator Carl Cool, Code
Enforcement Officer Eddie
Conklin, Sebring City
Administrator Bob Hoffman
and Sebring Police Commander
Steve Carr joined a meeting
Thursday night of about 35
members of the Washington
Heights community in a small
house on Lemon Street.
"We want to make the com-
munity something to be proud
of," said Robert Saffold, who
moderated the meeting.
Code enforcement
County code enforcement is
complaint-driven, Cool said.


People must sign complaints to
get run-down homes, over-
grown lots and junked cars
removed.
Junk cars either don't run,
have an expired tag or are out-
side an enclosed structure,
Conklin said. If the county tows
it, owners must pay or face a
lien, he said.
Residents in the county can
schedule garbage haulers to
pick up large items or cut and
bundle yard waste by calling
Assessment Coordinator Treasa
Handley at 402-6500.
Inside the city limits, resi-
dents can call 471-5100 to
schedule a pickup, Hoffman
said. The solid waste depart-
ment does scheduled pickups
twice each month.
Sidewalks/lighting
John Jones III of Sebring,
among others, wants sidewalks
and lights improved for safety.
Cool said the county provides
labor if homeowners will pro-
vide concrete.
A city lighting plan would
upgrade bulbs and fixtures and

SUV slams into Sebring house


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A 26-year-old
Sebring woman was injured
and there was quite a bit of
property damage when a sport
utility vehicle ploughed into a
house shortly after 1 p.m.
Friday.
Neighbors gathered at the
scene to watch municipal safe-
ty service personnel work
around the big red Ford
Explorer, which had lodged in


the front room of a house at
548 Magnolia Ave.
The driver of the vehicle,
identified as Crystal Page, told
Sebring police she didn't
know what had happened,
telling officers she had
blacked out at the wheel.
Police said she was taken to
Highlands Regional Medical
Center. However, spokesper-
sons at the hospital said they
had no such person in their
records.


Many nearby residents said
they heard the crash as the
sport utility vehicle slammed
into the small, white, frame
home, including neighbor Pat
Keeley.
"I didn't know if Air Force
One was coming down or
what," she said.
Keeley, who lives just down
the street at the corner of
Magnolia Avenue and
Eucalyptus Street,, said acci-

It's decision'


time on


school tax
i
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun r j
SEBRING Highlands County voters mus)
make an important decision Tuesday --
whether they will agree to a half cent sales ta.,
increase, the first request for additional school
funds in 35 years, or whether they will reject
the School Board of Highlands County's,
request for additional capital funding.
The situation is stark, and 'School
Superintendent Wally Cox doesn't even want
to think about what will happen if the referen-
dum should fail.
"The time to plan for our children's future is
now," Cox said, as he went from civic group to
business group to homeowners associations
this past month, making more than 60 presen-
tations to educate the public about the district's
pressing needs.
Student enrollment is soaring.
All of the district's current space is being
used. In fact, 40 portables have been added
each of the last two years, with an expected 40
additional portables to be added next year.
SAfter two decades of flat growth, Highlands
County grew by 3.5 percent last year, or by
almost 400 new students. Using only a 2 per-
cent rate of growth (which is considered low),
the student population would increase from
12,000 now to 21,000 by 2025.
There are three sources of capital revenue
the school district uses to build and maintain
schools.
One is a local source, called the Loca
Capital Improvement Property Tax, or 2 milj
tax, which is levied annually to fund capital
improvements.
Then there are two state sources, the Publi
Education Capital Outlay and the Class Siz
Amendment Allocation.
The 2 mill tax generates approximately $6.9
million a year. Of that amount, $2 million is
used to make debt payments on the money bor-
rowed to complete classroom construction over
the last 15 years. The rest is used to pay for a
school bus replacement program, new technol-
ogy and classroom equipment, current school
maintenance, the replacement of air condition-'
ing systems and roofs when needed, and the
lease of portable classrooms.
The state, on the other hand, is no longer
providing money to build classrooms.

Driver, 80, dies from



injuries in April wreck


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING An 80-year-
old Gulf Breeze woman died
Friday morning from injuries
she sustained in a wreck in
April.
Patricia B. Martin died at
7:29 a.m. Friday after being
admitted into Tampa General
Hospital, complaining of severe
headaches.


At the time of the wreck, nei-
ther she nor the other driver,
Adam T. Zuzek, 22, of Sebring,
complained of any injuries,
according to Florida Highway
Patrol reports.
It wasn't until the days fol-
lowing the wreck that Martin
complained of headaches, FHP
reports said.
The wreck occurred at 5:44
p.m. April 25 on Memorial


Drive, about one mile north of
the Sebring Parkway.
Martin, driving a 2001
BMW, had slowed down to
make a right turn onto Brighton
Road. Zuzek, driving a 1990
Toyota, failed to slow down and
hit the rear of her car. Both driv-
ers were buckled up.
Zuzek was charged on April
25 with careless driving, reports
said.


Bullard: Be enthusiastic about God's love


By PHIL ATTINGER

SEBRING County
Commissioner Bob Bullard
said something happens to
Christians as they get older.
When the\ are kids in
church,te ale fr more edihu-
Siasti ati e4ge. to answetiha,

He figures this change comes
between elementary and middle

noon, children."
All people are called by God
to be children of God, Bullard
said, and to be just as eager for
the return of the risen savior,
Bullard said.
Favorites
On Thursday, he asked more
than 100 people at the Adopt-A-
Leader Prayer Luncheon at the
Sebring Civic Center for a show
of hands on who loves God.
Hands went up. He then asked
how many believed that they
were God's favorite. Not many
hands went up.
Bullard said he thought he
was God's favorite because he's
had a life of mind-boggling,
life-changing miracles that he
knows he didn't deserve.
However, the books of Acts and
Galatians in the Bible say that
God shows no partiality.
"Everyone can claim to be
his favorite," he said. "Such is
the inexplicable immenseness
of God's love."

Some team members
not OK with idea
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING When
Community Traffic Safety
Team members first heard the
idea of having the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office hire
their staff person, they didn't
like it.
They want to keep the cur-.
rent coordinator, Renee LaDue.
Team chairman Lake Placid
Police Chief Phil Williams said
some are hesitant about change,
especially since LaDue is great
to work with, passionate about
child passenger safety, and
facilitates meetings and events
well.
She also has a family to raise,
and her duties take away from
that time, he said.
For herself, LaDue said it's
hard to do everything that the
job requires on just the $10,000
the county-pays her to be coor-
dinator, especially since she has
to deduct self-employment tax
and funds for supplies. She
hopes that the new coordinator
would be a child-safety seat
technician, as she is.


"It could be a fabulous
opportunity for the team as long
as the team is still making its
own decisions," LaDue said. "I
just want what's best for the
team."
One proposal floating around
the county would take county's
$10,000 and add it to $12,000
in funding from court fines to
pay for an unfunded position in
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office: Crime Prevention
Specialist working for "safe
neighborhoods." This person
could pull double duty as the
traffic team coordinator.
Sheriff Susan Benton first
heard the idea from County
Commissioner Barbara Stewart.
Lisa McGehee, director of
research and planning for
Benton, also spoke with County
Engineer Ramon Gavarrete via
e-mail on the subject in
February.
Safe neighborhoods, the e-
mail said, could involve direct-
ing traffic flow to reduce crime
safe public parking areas, crime
reduction by environmental
design, and other enhance-
ments. Gavarrete replied on
Feb. 22 that he always believed
the liaison to the committee
should be law enforcement.


Still, he warned that anyone
who works in that position
would have all the responsibili-
ties of the current coordinator
and must be able to work with
the traffic team and Florida
Department of Transportation
representatives.
Benton said she likes the idea
of having a crime prevention
specialist who can perform
those tasks if asked. It would be
a win-win situation, she said,
but she really didn't plan to take
on more work.
Benton chaired the traffic
team in 1996 and 1997 and
wrote several grants, including
one for the county's bicycle
safety trailer. At that time, the
team had a program to forgive
child safety seat traffic citations
and give away a new child safe-
ty seat if parents would attend a
free child passenger safety
training seminar, Benton said.
Last month, traffic team
members asked Williams to
send a letter to the county com-
mission asking to keep using
the $10,000 the way it is now.
That's open to interpretation, he
said. A sheriff's office staff per-
son could handle the coordina-
tor's duties just as easily as a
civilian.

Man arrested

on warrant for

manslaughter
SEBRING Highlands
County sheriff's deputies are
holding a man who is wanted
in New Jersey on a homicide
charge.
Hector Lebron-Garcia, 40,
of Sebring, was discovered to
have an outstanding warrant
after deputies stopped him for
driving without headlights,
arrest reports said.
At 10:14 p.m. Friday, April
19, a deputy stopped a green
Ford pickup at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 27 and Grand
Prix Avenue. The deputy
learned the driver, Lebron-
Garcia, had a possible war-
rant in New Jersey, and asked
him about it. Lebron-Garcia
said he'd never been to New
Jersey.
A tattoo on his upper back
with the words, "Pardon
Madre Mia," confirmed his
identity on the scene, reports
said.
When asked if he would go
to the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office for a volun-
tary fingerprint test, he went.
While there, the deputy
contacted the state prosecu-
tor's office in Salem County,
N.J., and was able to confirm
Lebron-Garcia's identity.

the screen door.
After several requests,
Garbrecht finally allowed the
officer in through the rear
screen door. The officer asked
Deutsch to step outside so he
could speak with her husband
privately, and she said "no."
He then asked Garbrecht to
step outside so he could talk
with her wife alone, and he
said "no."
The officer asked Deutsch
to leave again, placing his
hand on her left shoulder to
escort her, at which point
Garbrecht punched the officer
in the right lower portion of
his back.
According to reports, the
officer. immediately turned

him to the ground."
While he tried to handcuff
Garbrecht and handcuff him,
Deutsch jumped on the offi-
cers back, hitting him, reports
said. After a few seconds,
another officer arrived and
was able to get Deutsch off

with bail set at $1,500.

Carney

charged with

three counts of

aggravated

assault
LAKE PLACID After a
local woman allegedly
charged at a neighbor's car
with hers on March 4, she has
been charged with three
counts of aggravated assault
with a motor vehicle.
Linda Jean Carney, 43, of
Lake Placid, also faces an
enhancement to those charges
since there was alleged preju-
dice by her during the inci-
dent.
Complaint
affidavits
state Carney
arrived at her
f home at 5:45
p.m., March
4, and began
yelling pro-
CARNEY fanities at a
neighbor, who is building a
house on the same street -
Persimmon Trail. Carney
allegedly yelled profanity at
the neighbor, making refer-
ences to her race, weight and
gender, and claimed she was
bringing down land values in
the neighborhood by moving
in.
The neighbor, her daughter
and her niece attempted to
leave the area by driving
southbound on Persimmon
Trail, but Carney drove her
car northbound down the
middle of the street, blocking
passage, reports said.
The neighbor honked her
horn at Carney, who allegedly
drove right up to the neigh-
bor's car, bumper-to-bumper,
and tried to push her back-
wards.
When that didn't work,
affidavits said, she backed up
about 25 feet and then
allegedly sped at the neigh-
bor's car. The neighbor had to
reverse quickly to avoid a
wreck.
Carney then parked on her
own property and went inside
her house before Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
arrived. Deputies tried to con-
tact her at her home, but
could not.
She was arrested under
warrants Thursday, May 5,
with no bond.

Avon Park council to get



FEMA trailer update


A lesson in parenting


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It has been
nearly six months since the city
council voted to permit the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency to temporarily
place disaster assistance trailers
inside the city limits.
Monday night Pamela Keil
of the state of Florida Division
of Emergency Management
will come before council to
give an update on the situation.
As many as 30 of the travel
trailers were set up in the city at
one time as accommodations
for people who had been dis-
placed because of damage to
their homes by hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne.
Council members initially
took a dim view of the situation
after they learned that the
FEMA trailers had been placed
in the city without the proper
municipal permits.
At the time, FEMA represen-
tative Jim Hampton told the
council that the trailers had
been installed "illegally but
with good intentions"
Before approving the place-
ment of the trailers for six
months council members
voiced concerns that the trailers
right become quasi-permanent
fixtures in the city, serving as a
disincentive for people to get
their primary residences fixed


quickly.
"I want to know about the
exit strategy. I want to know
what happens at the end,"
Councilman George Hall said.
"We already have a code
problem in this town," he told
the FEMA representatives.
Avon Park City Manager
C.B. Shirey said while he is
awaiting the official report, he
had understood that at least a
few of the trailers may already
have been removed.
Some of that progress may be
noted if and when city council
members begin a program of
Saturday morning constitution-
als.
That is a suggestion that will
be raised Monday evening by
Hall.
He remembered that during
the tenure of former council-
woman Justine Devlin, the
council took Saturday morning
walks through various portions
of the city to view both the
problems and the successes of
the city.
Hall looks at the project as a
potential tool so that city coun-
cil members could all "be on
the same page" when it comes
to code enforcement.
"It worked real well for the
council back then, and I think it
would be a good idea for us to
get out and do that now," he
said.


Hall said the walking tours
both would show community
spirit and dovetail with the most
recent effort on visioning and
action put together by the Avon
Park Chamber of Commerce.
At this point, Hall had no
specific place he wanted to
start. However, he did indicate
that ultimately he hoped the
council would be able to make
its way through the entire city.
"I think there are places in all
four sides of town that we could
walk and talk about," he said.
Council members also are
scheduled to hear from Avon
Park Fire Chief Terry Feickert
and Code Enforcement Officer
Donald Simmons. They're
.expected to talk about the possi-
bility of taking the enforcement
of code violations out of the
courts and turning them over to
a special master.
At their last session, the
council had asked for research
into that matter with an eye
toward prosecuting more cases
more quickly.
In other action, the council is
scheduled to hear the second
and final reading of an ordi-
nance that would allow for the
annexation of 24 acres off
North Gaster Road. That is
scheduled to be cut up into lots
and become a housing develop-
ment to be known as Twin
Lakes Pointe.

Helping students one at a time


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Take Stock
In Children is an innovative
public/private scholarship pro-
gram which was developed to
help worthy students who
might otherwise not be able to
afford a higher education.
Four year scholarships are
:given to low income students
who sign a contract while in the
sixth grade, pledging to main-
tain good grades and to remain
drug and crime free.
To help those students fulfill
their pledges, a volunteer men-
tor is assigned to each one. The
mentor meets with the student
once a week on school grounds
and provides moral support,
advise, and a sympathetic ear.
Because the mentor and the
student remain together until
the student graduates high
school, typically a six year
interval, strong bonds are built.
This year 17 local students
will be graduating out of the
program, all of them will be
attending college.
The program, which began
10 years ago in one Florida
county, is now established in all
67. The local office, in the
Jacaranda Hotel, handles stu-
dents in Highlands, Hardee and
DeSoto counties.
Approximately 10,000 stu-
dents statewide, have earned
four year scholarships in the
last 10 years.
Twenty four percent of
Florida's students are eligible
for the program because their
family income is below the fed-
Seral poverty level.
Eligible
students are

superintendents, sheriffs and
local officials.
Mike Weinstein, who is the
president of Take Stock In
FChildren, drove down from
Jacksonville to attend the cele-
bration honoring area mentors
Thursday night at the Jacaranda
Hotel.
Weinstein, who also led
Jacksonville's successful bid
for the Super Bowl, was
Pleased to go out of his way to
attend.
"I'm here by choice," he
said. "We've got to take more
community responsibility.
There will be no giant leaps
unless someone does some-
thing. The better the school
system, the better the commu-
nity.
"This is not a gift," he said.
"It's a protected investment.
The kids have to carry it
through six years. They earn it.
A child will work harder to
keep something. It's the men-
toring that makes the differ-
ence."
The state allocates four mil-
lion dollars a year to help pay
for the costs of running the pro-
gram, but all the money used to
buy scholarships, through
Florida's pre-paid tuition plan,
is raised privately.

you must vote in the precinct in which you live. Polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00
p.m. This is a Countywide Election, therefore all Polling Places will be open and all qualified regis-
tered Highlands County voters will be allowed to vote.

3) ADDRESS CHANGES: Check your address on your voter card. If the address has
been changed by the 911 system and you have not physically moved, you will still be able to vote
using the old address. We will enter all the new 911 address changes on the voter system after
this May 10th election and send you a new card at that time. If you have physically moved within
the county, you need to call our office and change your address as soon as possible because you
may have to vote in a different precinct. If you have moved into Highlands County from another
county or state and you are not yet registered, you will not be eligible to vote in this election.

4) POLLING LOCATIONS: B6 sure to check your voter card to see which precinct you live
in. Compare your precinct number on the voter card to the list of Polling Locations in this ad to
determine where your current polling place is located.

SPECIAL NOTE TO VOTERS IN PRECINCTS 15 & 15S: You will still vote at The
Restoration Center, 8475 Sparta Road in Sebring. This is located at the intersection of Sparta
Road and State Road 66. As you know, this Polling Place was changed from the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center to the Restoration Center before the November 2,,2004 General Election
due to Hurricane Relief efforts. You will continue voting at The Restoration Center for all sub-
sequent elections, unless you are otherwise notified.

5) ID REQUIRED: Florida Law now requires you to produce PICTURE AND SIGNATURE ID.
If you do not have this type of ID, you will be asked to sign an affidavit before you are allowed tp
vote.
If you have any questions, please call the Elections Office at (863) 402-6655 or email us at

FDOT holding regional forums


on long-range funding plan


By PHIL ATIINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Florida
Department of Transportation is
working on a plan to guide
spending of $100 billion on
Florida's transportation system
over the next 20 years.
What planners would like
right now is input from local
officials and citizens on what
they see as regional problems
for transportation in Florida. A
public forum from 2-5 p.m.
Tuesday at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center will
give local residents and offi-
cials a chance to do just that.
Other regional forums will
take place 5-8 p.m. Thursday at
the FDOT District 7 office,
11201 N. Malcolm McKinley
Drive, Tampa; and from 9 a.m.
to noon on Thursday, May 19,
at the FDOT Orlando Urban
Office, 133 Semoran Blvd.,
Orlando. For additional infor-
mation about the forums them-
selves, visit www.ftp2025.com.
Cindy Clemmons-Adente,
public information officer for


FDOT District 1 in Bartow, said
the 2025 Florida Transportation
Plan is a vision, mission and
goals plan. Rather than defining
lines on a map, it will outline
the rules that dictate where
those lines will go and how they
are built.
FDOT is outlining this plan
to respond to new trends and
challenges. Once the document
is finished, FDOT planners will
refer back to it to ensure they
are keeping with the plan. The
last time it was updated was in
2000, five years ago. A lot has
changed in those five years,
especially for Highlands
County.
Clemmons-Adente said State
Road 70 and State Road 80 are
two popular topics, especially
since last year's hurricane sea-
son, to help people evacuate
from the coasts. Commercial
truck traffic needs the roads
improved to help move goods
and materials between the
coasts or from distribution cen-
ters in Central Florida.
U.S. 27, she said, is in line


for a lot of funding to have six
lanes of traffic where most
areas only have four.
The Florida Turnpike is
studying whether or not to send
a spur through Highlands
County. The only problem
there, Clemmons-Adente said,
is that it cannot follow a state
highway too closely, or else it
will lose money from people
taking the free road.
Even if some concerns don't
get addressed, Gov. Jeb Bush
has a growth management plan
with $9.5 million for trans-
portation, education and water
management improvements,
Clemmons-Adente said. This is
funding outside the regular
FDOT work program. So far,
the recommended proposal for
transportation would give fund-
ing in a 75 percent to 25 percent
split for bridge maintenance,
transit programs and new major
starting projects.
That proposal may change by
Tuesday after legislators have
debated it further, Clemmons-
Adente said.


Health walks soon to be finished


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The establish-
ment of a number of health
walks in and around Sebring is
just around the corner.
All that remains at this time
is the posting of banners to let
people know the routes.
Three of the paths will wend
their way through Sebring and
bear local names. The fourth
will be an upgrade of the side-
walks and multi-use path that
surrounds Lake Jackson.
The effort has been more
than a year in the making, start-
ing with Amy Cober and Derek
Carlton of the Highlands
County Health Department.
"Amy actually got this start-
ed. It was part of her work plan
with the Women, Infants and
Children and the Closing the
Gap programs to get this start-
ed," Carlton said.
The three routes will vary in
length from one to three miles.
They all will begin and end at
Sebring's historic Circle. There
will be the Pine Street Trail, the
Tuscawilla Trail and the
Nancessowee Trail.
Carlton said the routes were
created to be mixed and
matched so that people could
walk very short or very long
distances.
"We have the one mile for


the people who say 'Hey this is
my New Year's resolution' or 'I
want to get into shape,' then as
they progress they can take a
different trail or combine the
trails so they can add to the dis-
tance," he said.
In fact, Carlton said they
could walk as many as six miles
by doing all of the paths.
While two of the paths have
names involving the streets, one
- Tuscawilla refers to a
park that once was located
where Sebring City Hall now
stands.
It is Carlton's division of the
health department, the chronic
disease health promotion and
education program, that actual-
ly will pay for banners for two
of the trails.
The three trails will not
involve any of the paths occu-
pied by the former health
walks. Those were done more
than a decade ago and bore the
names of cars, such as the
Porsche and Jaguar walks.
"We looked through histori-
cal records and nobody actually
could tell us where the routes
were, how long they were and
we were only able to find two
or three signs still posted," he
said.
Pete Pollard, executive direc-
tor of the Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency, said


he's just waiting to get with the
city's public works department
to put them up.
"We need to determine exact-
ly where they are going to go,"
he said.
Pollard is also awaiting some
information from the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association for the
back of one of the placards.
"They were supposed to give
me some information for one
side of the sign that would serve
as a directory of some sort," he
said.
A fourth path also is planned.
That one is scheduled to cir-
cumnavigate Lake Jackson, and
is being done through the Step
Up Florida Program.
That is an initiative by the
Florida Department of Hea)j,
which funds each count\
$1,000 to promote ph.i'cal
activity. Carlton said that
money is earmarked for the
Lake Jackson sidewalk project.
"We're going to do all 11
miles in half mile increments,"
Carlton said. "It's really nice,
with the water fountains and
everything, but there are .no
markings to tell people the dis-
tances."
That is only being held up by
the creation of signage. There's
no word when those markers
might be finished.

Transportation

Disadvantaged

may face more

deficits
By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Once again,
the transportation disadvan-
taged board is hitting a budget
crunch.
Increased fuel, insurance and
labor costs may force the local
coordinating board to cut trips
back to Medicaid-funded med-
ical necessity trips, as in 2001,
when the board got its last
funding increase.
Transportation Disadvan-
taged Coordinator Tim Banks
has reported that the systems
needs a 3 percent, across-the-
board funding increase to offset
costs.
"We've kept cost down to
the carrier," he said, "but we're
getting into the point where
we're losing money."
Labor is the biggest expense,
he said, including the minimum
wage increase. Gasoline prices
have gone up nearly 30 percent
in the last year, and as much as
doubled since 2001. The single
increase in funding in 2001 was
good then, but Banks said cost
increases have come out of that
increase, reducing the number
of trips.
Transportation disadvan-
taged local coordinating board
members wasted no time
Wednesday in giving Banks the
go-ahead to seek more funding.
Human Services Director
Kevin Roberts said he would
like to see the county doing
more outreach trying to
build a customer base of people
who can pay fares and help off-
set costs.
Marcia Staszko with the
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council said the
county should also ask people
to check the back of their vehi-
cle registration renewal form to
give $1 to fund the transporta-
tion disadvantaged program. It
goes directlyto the county, not
the Florida Transportation
Trust Fund; she said.
SThe"local board would need
to do good marketing, she said.
There's a lot of competition on
the back of the tag renewal for
people's dollars.

Eagle deaths investigated


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Federal
wildlife authorities are looking
into the deaths of a pair of
American bald eagles in
Highlands County.
Reportedly, the big birds ini-
tially were taken to Wrede's
Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
The facility off Payne Road is
well known for its work with
sick and injured animals.
"They were brought in about
10 days ago. One was a mature
eagle the other was what we
call a juvenile which can be
from a year to 3 years old," said
Dave Wrede, who runs the
wildlife rehabilitation center
with his wife Karen.
Wrede subsequently sent one
of the eagles to the National
Wildlife Health Center in
Madison, Wis., for additional
study. The other one was
ordered to be destro.ed.. '::.
However, officials at the cen-


ter in Wisconsin refused to talk
about the findings of their
autopsy. Instead, they referred
all questions to Special Agent
Bruce Corley of the United
States Fish and Wildlife
Service.
When contacted, Corley also
declined to talk about the inci-
dent or indicate when any infor-
mation would be available on
the case.
"It's an open investigation,"
he said.
Wrede revealed that when
he'd seen the eagles, both of the
birds appeared to have been
well-fed. He said both had
come from the area of the
Highlands County Landfill on
Arbuckle Creek Road.
He explained that the landfill
serves as a feeding ground for a
number of birds including vul-
tures and eagles.
"It's hard tp say what goes in
out::there, at the landfill;" he
said.. .. .


However, more than the
landfill, Wrede suspects that the
problem might have had some-
thing to do with misdirected
poisoning.
He indicated both the birds
had emitted a "strong, vile
odor" when they were picked
up.
Reportedly, there have been
indications some local ranchers
and dairymen may have been
setting bait for coyotes or feral
dogs that have been preying on
their livestock, all of which
could be related to the eagle
deaths.
"Both the coyotes and the
pack dogs will go after the

He had heard that one local
rancher had actually killed as

In order to send them to col-

White works for Boar's Head

Highlands County school dis-

Dorothy Harris of Sebring
can't change the amount of

able to manipulate her sched-

"The nice thing about my

so I decided to only work part
time," she said.
Balancing home, children
and work can seem over-
whelming. Elizabeth Havlock
is living evidence that even
under the best circumstances
mother's have a difficult time
keeping their priorities in
order.
Havlock works as the direc-
tor of religious education for
St. James Catholic Church in
Lake Placid, which allows her
to home school her four boys,
who range in age from 4-14
years of age.
Last week she and her hus-
band, Todd, went on a second
honeymoon.
"In 15 years we had never,
ever spent a night away from
the boys except to bring
home another baby," Havlock
said.
On the fourth morning of
their vacation she began to feel
a little guilty about being away
from her children. Havlock
prayed about the guilt and
afterwards she realized that in
achieving her goals of mother-
hood, she had neglected her
husband.
"Todd was getting the left-
overs and not just from the
fridge, the leftovers of me,"
she said.
At the opposite end of the
spectrum, there are times when
everything can go wrong and

"I'd bent over to pick up this

Jeannie Holloway is the
manager of Movie Gallery in
Sebring. She would love to
spend more time with her chil-
dren, but exceptional circum-
stances prevent her from losing
any time at work.
"I can't afford to work less
hours because I would lose my
insurance," she said.
Holloway's 14-year-old
daughter was born with a
genetic heart condition and has
already had open heart surgery.
SHer youngest son,10, has
undergone four surgeries for
polyps and may need to have
additional surgeries.
Although she may struggle
to pay medical bills, Holloway
will celebrate this Mother's
Day with unquestionable joy.
A year ago, she was diag-
nosed with cervical cancer and
only given six months to live.
Today she is.doing well and
doctors believe they were able
to remove all cancer.
Whenever someone asks
about her health, Holloway

statement --one that may
describe how many working

and husbands.

TAX
Continued from 1A
given local communities in the
past to fund new construction)
has dropped from over a million
dollars in 1995-96 to zero dol-
lars this year, and the projection
is for zero dollars next year.
The state's Classroom for
Kids Capital Outlay Program
went from $2 million in 2003-
04 to $390,000 this year,
nowhere near enough the
amount needed.
While the state did take in
more sales tax revenue this
year, and has increased its allo-
cations to school districts, that
money is dedicated to operating
costs only, and cannot be used
for capital purposes.
As to the question of impact
fees, Cox said that would first
have to be approved through the
county government, and would
be collected at the time building
permits were pulled. This
makes it a difficult, drawn out
process, which wouldn't come
close to providing the funds
needed in any case. It is esti-
mated the fees would produce
only about $1 million a year.
Almost as serious a draw-
back is the fact that because
impact fees generate so little,
over so long a period, they can-
not be bonded and the county
needs to raise $50 million in the
near term to fund current school
improvements.
Cox said increasing property
taxes is not a possibility. To
fund the projected construction
costs would take the property
tax above the 10 mill maximum
tax allowed under law. And
even if it didn't, the state can
mandate how some of those
property tax funds could be
spent, so some of the money
might not even get' to :the
schools.


my flowering trees but that was
about it," he said.
Possibly the biggest loss was
an antique desk that sat in the
living room.
"That was an heirloom," he
said.
Police used some of the
debris from the front of the
building to shore up the front


Lottery money also is of little
help to the needs in Highlands
County.
Fifty percent of lottery funds
are used to pay its prizes.
Thirty-nine percent of lottery
funds go to servicing the
requirements of earlier bond
issues and debt service as part
of the Classrooms First
Program.
Lottery administration costs
are taken out of the remaining
11 percent, and only then is the
remainder divided among the
67 counties.
This year, lottery proceeds
given to Highlands County
amounted to less than
$400,000, and that money had
to be used toward operating
expenses because the state has
lowered the amount of money
allocated out of general funds,
and made up the difference with
the lottery revenue.
Cox said that back in the
early 1990s the state's legisla-
ture realized it would not be
able to fund new construction,
so it passed a law allowing local
school boards to levy up to half
a cent sales tax surcharge
through a local referendum.
Fifty-eight of the 67 counties,
or 80 percent, are collecting
sales tax surcharges, although
not all use those funds on
schools.
The half cent surcharge is
estimated to raise $159 million
over the course, of its 20-year
run. This will cover the majori-
ty of future needs, and be
enough money to allow bond-
ing, which means the $50 mil-
lion needed in the short run
would be immediately avail-
able.
Also the tax would be shared
by everyone in Highlands
County, including visitors,
spreading the burden and low-
ering the' cost for individuals.'

income of $32,000 would be
paying slightly more than $3
extra a month.
Finally, the money generated
by the sales tax would be total-
ly under local control.
As to questions of guarantee-
ing the money is spent on
schools and not on some extrav-
agance, Cox said the school
board stands behind its reputa-
tion of having long been cau-
tious with taxpayer dollars. It
has already approved and
released a detailed, itemized list
of the capital projects to be
undertaken. These have been
budgeted carefully, each item
scrutinized for need.
The money will only be used
for the expansion and improve-
ment of older schools, and the
construction of five elementary
schools, one middle school and
one high school. This includes
an upgrade of all computers and
software and will provide net-
work servers where needed.
It also would be used to pro-
vide instructional classroom
equipment and furniture, band,
vocational and athletic equip-
ment, and office and custodial
equipment.
It will not be used for salaries
or benefits or any other general
operating costs.
If the referendum doesn't
pass Tuesday, Cox said all con-
struction projects would be in
jeopardy, and schools would
become overcrowded. Schools
might have to be cobbled
together using portables, and in
a worst case scenario, double
sessions, or a year-round school
schedule might be needed.
There would be a reduction
of extracurricular activities and
school programs, less mainte-
nance on overworked facilities,
and technology would become-
outdated.

TOFFiN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

A rewarding

job bringing

pleasure

Tuffin' It With Tuffley was-
n't so tough this week.
That's because I had the
pleasure of working with a
group of lovely women who
enjoy what they do, and what
they do brings smiles or
soothes tears. They all work
for Mike Cowan at one of his
four "Cindy" greeting card and
gift stores (and the Cardsmart
in the Southgate Plaza).
What I learned in the course
of a morning was how popular
greeting cards are. People buy
them by the handful, and some
customers are very organized.
Many make lists of coming
birthdays, anniversaries and
such, and come into the stores
at the first of the month to buy
that month's supply.
What this means is a large
part of the job is keeping the
cards and envelopes straight-
ened and in order.
"I'm a nitpicker when it
comes to my cards," Billie
Taps, the manager at
Cardsmart, said, as she showed
me the racks and demonstrated
how she wanted the cards
arranged.
"It's never, ever done," Taps
continued. "You straighten
them out 15,000 times a day,
over and over again."
I learned to put the
envelopes behind the .e d .

Selling cards, gifts to create memories

Mother's Day gift for Colt's mom.

SEBRING -- Mike Cowan owns
four stationary and gift stores in
Sebring: The Cardsmart store in
Southgate Plaza, next to Publix;
Cindy's Hallmark Store in the
Sebring Square Plaza, next to Winn-
Dixie; Cindy's Hallmark Store and
Cindy's Gifts & Engraving both in
Lakeshore Mall.
Cowan named the stores in honor
of his sister, Cindy. He opened his
first gift store in 1985 in Avon Park.
That store has since been closed.
The stores are staffed by a group
of wonderful, hard working ladies
who love what they do and laugh
while they're doing it.
They also think highly of Cowan.
"He's the best boss in the world,
and you can say I said that," said
Billie Taps, who manages the
Cindy's at the Southgate Plaza.
Over at the Sebring Square store,
Marlene Rafferty agreed. "That's
why he's so great," she said with a
smile, "he has all the women telling
him what to do."
In addition to providing a wide
selection of cards in all different
price ranges. Cowan's stores offer all
kinds of gift items, from inspira-
tional books, to collectibles like
Willow Tree and Precious Moments
figurines. Yankee candles are the run
away best seller, and there are
always the odd or unusual gifts to
choose from as well.
For instance, the stores all carry
fabric butterflies mounted on a rub-
ber band. Wind one up, and put it
inside a card. When the receiver
opens it, the butterfly flies out.
Cowan also has a thriving engrav-
ing business, which he operates out
of Cindy's Gifts & Engraving in the
mall. Besides plaques and trophies,
there is a full line of gifts, from pens
to license plates which. can all be
customized.
Cowan accepts applications for
employment year round, but going
into the slower summer months he

Store in Sebring.

isn't hiring, at the moment.
. When he does hire, he looks for
people who are outgoing and ener-
getic.
"Anyone can learn how to operate
a cash register," Cowan said. "But
some people are made for (isolated)
office work, and we need people
who can work with others."
In addition to a dedicated staff,
Cowan works to please his cus-
tomers by doing his homework and
keeping up with the latest trends or
breakthroughs. Four times a year he
travels to a huge gift show in
Atlanta, and he visits Chicago two
times a year for the same purpose.
This means he always has fresh
merchandise, as well as a stock of
old favorites, and he buys with his
clientele in mind. "We're an older
community," he pointed out, and he
keeps the needs of seniors in mind
when he makes his selections.
Working in a gift shop has definite
rewards, customers are often relaxed
and in a good mood, or if they are
stressed, can be comforted with help
in finding that perfect expression or
gift.
Repeat customers are the back-

band, Dan DeBono, is the bro-
ker, and they are both multi-
million dollar producers. They
were drawn to Lake Placid five
years ago by its small-town
atmosphere.
They still chuckle about a
small-town problem that
occurred when .they opened.
Somehow when their phone
i line was attached, the calls went
to the local jeweler instead. The'
repairmen came back and cut
the line and fixed it. But then
the jeweler had no phone line.

wards, so they don't get crum-
pled or creased.
Taps also showed me the
inventory card which is at the
back of each card bin. The card
is swiped into a computerized
system, and the information is
then transferred by telephone
to order new inventory.
As I straightened up the dis-
plays, and pulled the inventory
cards from the bins which were
empty, I discovered there is
some mystery involved in this
job. For example, you'll find
bins filled with cards but no
envelopes, or filled with
envelopes but with only a sin-
gle card.
And I discovered there are
cards for every occasion, kind
of relative, or type of friend.
Do you know a dog about to
have a birthday? There's a card
just for it.
Have a stepgreat-grandchild
about to graduate from high
school? There's a card just for
her.

The pay varies with experi-

Saturday. The telephone num-
bers are, respectively, 314-

in Lakeshore Mall, are open

business. We have a high-traffic
Web site, with a fishing report,
and news that's community ori-
ented," Dan DeBono said.
His background was in the
investment field, writing for
Merrill, Lynch, Chase, and
financial articles for newspa-
pers. "The best investment
advice on real estate," Dan
DeBono said, "is to buy what
you like and keep it. Then if
there's a bubble or a cycle dip,
you still have something you're
happy with. The Baby Boomers
are moving here, and there will
always be a need for housing.
For example out of 8,500 sites
at Placid Lakes, only 1,600 are
Presently built on. Most of
'what's "going on now is flip-'
ping, a get-rich-quick mentali-
ty. But this area is still destined
for growth, and all the projec-
tions show that."


Inspirational, heartfelt,
solemn, or silly, no matter the
message, there's plenty of
choice.
Which is why customer
service is the most important
component of working this
retail job.
I was taught to greet arriving
customers, but to give them
plenty of space if they only
wished to browse.
If customers only had a
vague idea of what they want-
ed, on the other hand, it would
be my job to make sugges-
tions.
Business was steady when I
was there, and Cindy's
Hallmark Shop in Lakeshore
Mall had put on an extra per-
son because of Mother's Day
shopping.
Christmas, of course, is by
far the busiest time of year,
followed by Valentine's Day,
but Mother's Day is close'
behind in third place.
It's with relief I can report
we men have shown some
improvement over the years.
While Taps had sighed in
affectionate frustration at how
we wait until it's almost too
late before buying,a card,


A longtime resident of Lake
Placid, C.B. Brewer read
meters for the water department
for years, familiarizing himself
with every nuance of the area.
"We plan on being here a
while and believe in treating
everyone right. We cover all of
Highlands County, and we only
charge 6 percent for lots and 4
percent commissions for homes
whether listing or selling.
That's lower than other
Realtors charge and therefore
more money is kept in the cus-
tomers' pockets, although we
offer the same quality service.
We believe in keeping costs
down, and keeping our feet on
the ground,", C.B. Brewer said.

Placid Inc. is at 6 South Pine
Ave. Call 465-9455, or check

Marlene Rafferty, who could
be called the manager of the
Cindy's Hallmark Shop in
Sebring Square if she'd let
you, has seen a little improve-
ment.
"You all are doing a better
job," she said. "You're not
waiting totally until the last
minute anymore."
Well, maybe we haven't
shown that much improve-
ment, I'm told men buy more
"I'm sorry" cards than any
other.
Then again, there was the
doting husband who came into
Taps' store. She saw he was
stymied by the selection and
approached, asking him if he
was looking for a wife. "No, I
already have one," he replied
without missing a beat, and
then bought a card days before
it was due.

ing to keep up with the Avon

A senior citizen from Naples
was recently scammed outside
of a Publix in a fake lottery
ticket swindle. Lottery ticket
scams' are not new, they are a
derivative of the classic "pigeon
drop." The pigeon drop is an
example of a confidence game.
With a confidence game you
are persuaded to buy worthless
property. The expression con
man originated from these
types of frauds. There are three
parties involved in confidence
games, the con artist, an accom-
plice called a shill and the vic-
tim who is called a mark or
pigeon. The lottery ticket scam
works like this.
You are approached on the
street by someone who claims
to have won the lottery. The
swindler has the winning lot-
tery ticket in his hand and
shows it to you. The con man
(or woman) wants you to cash
in the ticket because they can't
for a variety of reasons. In
Florida there have been cases
where the swindler said he
couldn't cash in the ticket
because he didn't have proper
identification. In other situa-
tions the swindler indicated he
was an illegal alien and that's
why he couldn't redeem it.
While the two of you are
having a conversation the
accomplice shows up. The shill
apologizes for butting in and
explains that he overheard your
remarks and wants to help, for a
cut of the winnings. The
accomplice explains that he has
a friend who is a lawyer or
accountant who works nearby
and who has experience in this
area. The shill then suggests
that the money can be shared
three ways after it has been safe
guarded for a month or so.
At this point the con man
promises you and the accom-
plice part of the winnings if you
help him. You are convinced to
put up "good faith" money to
assure you won't run off with
the winning ticket. If you agree,
the crooks wait while you go
home or to your bank for the
money. The amount fronted is
usually hundreds .to thousands
of dollars. Once you hand over
the cash the con man and shill
disappear and you are stuck
with a worthless lottery ticket.
Right now you may be say-
ing to yourself that you would
never fall for a scam like this.
Unfortunately, scenarios like


INSURANCE FINAN


this play out regular-
ly in every state that
runs a lottery. Pigeon
drop perpetrators,
called travelers or
gypsies in law
enforcement circles,
are extremely mobile
and travel quickly '' "
from city to city and CONI
state to state. Along
the way they defraud OUTI
gullible people. In
Florida, these travel- M
ers show up more fre- Matt
quently during our
busy tourist season.
They make their way from the
top of the state around
Jacksonville, work their way
down to Miami, over to Marco
Island/Naples and then up the
west coast to large cities like
Tampa and St. Petersburg.
Victims of confidence
schemes rarely complain to the
police because they are too
embarrassed to report the
crime. As long as people are
willing to help others during a
time of need the scams will
continue to surface. To protect
yourself from lottery ticket con-
fidence games remember these
tips:
Never redeem a lottery
ticket for a stranger.

Editor's note: The News-Sun

about Highlands County since

Flash From the Past of

chise to install television
coaxial cable in Sebring,
"a promise to further
study the feasibility of
buildingg or creating a
Junior Olympic swim-
ming course at city pier on Lake
Jackson, discussions on paving,
curbing and gutter projects now
in progress in Sebring kept
members of the Sebring City
tCouncil well occupied during
'their Thursday night session in
-the council chambers.
SOn other matters, the council
'authorized pay raises for two
-city employees Police Chief
Lonnie Curl and Fire Chief G.
-T. Haywood and granted an
increased expense allowance
for N. B. Graybill, manager of
-Sebring Air Terminal.
The salaries of the police
'chief and fire chief were
increased $30 a month bringing
'the salaries of each to $5,460
-per year. The additional
expense allowance for Graybill
"was $25 per month bringing his
earnings to $5,400 per year.
Only council member not
present at the early meeting was
William Post. The council
called its Thursday night meet-
ing because several of the mem-
bers had planned trips out of
;town, which would have made
'the regular Tuesday night meet-
ing impractical.
SPlan Pool Study -
-Appearing before the council
,on the proposal to create a
Junior Olympic swimming
-course at city pier were Mrs.
:Smith Rudasill and -Mrs.
'George Dumont, who presented
Plans for the project which


would include six swim lanes in
an area 75x42 feet adjacent to
the pier.
Preliminary studies on the
project revealed costs of


approximately $2,300 and
would include the erection of
platforms at each of the "pool"
and dredging the course area to
a depth of four feet.
Also commenting briefly on
the value of the project to the
entire county was Ed Halcomb,

president of the Parent/Teacher
Association County Council,
who said he believed such a
project would be in line with
President Kennedy's request for
more physical fitness pro-
grams in America and
"would offer further recre-
ational facilities for all the
children of the county."
Council members prom-
ised to take the proposal
under advisement and fur-
ther studies will be made
to determine the feasibility
of the plan.
Call for Curbing Bids
In relation to the work
being done on Pine Street,
the council members voted
to call for bids for 3000-odd
feet of concrete curbing in addi-
tion to the paving work now in
progress.
Curbing estimates have been
offered the council from $1 to
$1.25 per foot for a 16-inch
(depth) curb.

Mold be gone


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
No they're not shaking the bats out of the belfry at the First
Baptist Church in Sebring, they're simply re-attaching the
refurbished steeple back onto the roof of the church. The roof
had been damaged during the hurricanes and developed mold.
Jimmy Knox, a supervisor for Mold Management,a company
based in Beaumont, Texas, was overseeing the work. He has
been in the Heartland since August, and it will be two or more
months before he'll be able to go home.


Dewberry wants art


camp in Highlands


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING She's known
to millions across the country
:as the originator and developer
of the one stroke painting tech-
.nique, now Donna Dewberry
would like to open an art camp
-for youth in Highlands County.
The problem is finding the
property.
S "We'd like to find 20-30
:acres that has 15 acres of use-
*able: .land,"; Dewberry said.
.:"We're really looking for kind
of a secluded area."
It was the death of her oldest
laughter that spurred the artist
2o look at opening a children's
art camp as a legacy.
SThe family has land in
peorgia but the Florida-based
Dewberry said that simply is
)oo far away to manage effec-
livel. Therefore, they're liqui-
dating that property and look-
ing to purchase acreage here.
SThe idea would be to start
'with a day camp for art, ulti-
nmately expanding into a full-
'fledged camping facility with a
,central pavilion and cabins
:where youngsters could spend
-the night.
S "We'd like to have arts, and
*some sports, for kids who don't
-normally have the opportunity
'to go in the woods and camp
rout," she said.
Initial plans call for the con-
-struction of a main building,
followed by a kitchen facility
*and large hall. Dewberry said in
-the meantime they might have
:some tented areas to use as
*shelters.
Once they find the land,
'Dewberry said construction of
-the camp would come easily.
"We're a 501c organization
,and we have some big, corpo-
-rate sponsors that have said
they would build the cabins,"
-she said. "Each one wants to
,build a different type of cabin
so they would be unique."
SThe notion is to make the
:camp free for underprivileged
I


kids, and Dewberry said there's
also sponsorship for bringing
the youngsters here.
"We have all kinds of com-
panies that would support the
kids getting here through fre-
quent flyer miles or other
avenues," she said. "Plus there
are a lot of kids here in Florida
we can work with."
Although Dewberry is best
known for her painting, she said
the camp could have many dif-
ferent kinds of art.
"We'd like to show them
many different kinds of things.
It could be music, it could be
whatever the group we have out
there might want," she said.
"I'm all about showing the kids
something they wouldn't nor-
mally have the opportunity to
have."
Just as with the building of
the camp and getting children
to and from the location,
Dewberry said she would not
be at a loss to get corporate
donations for the materials to
create everything from painting
and sculptures to music.
Dewberry said before she
passed away, her daughter
Maria had been studying to be a
social worker and that is what
inspired her.
"You know, youngsters get
the opportunity to be on sports
teams and such, but they don't
get a lot of opportunities to go
out to a camp in the wilderness
and study art," she said.
Because of her network of
accredited teachers, Dewberry
said her target would be to
bring youngsters from the inner
city out to the camp.
It was shortly after Maria
Dewberry's death that the
teachers came together at their
convention and started the
Maria Dewberry Children's
Foundation.

more about Dewberry can find

We vote 'yes' on


half-cent sales tax

On Tuesday voters will decide whether to raise the.
county's sales tax by one-half cent to fund improvements
to the infrastructure of public schools.
It's really that simple: If voters agree, the sales tax will
rise from 7 to 7 1/2 percent, and that extra half-penny
collected on every dollar will be earmarked for improve-
ments to the places where children learn and study.
Since tax hikes always raise the appropriate question -
What is government doing with our money? and bring
a typical reaction Wasting it as usual! we're going to
explain why we support this tax and why we hope the
voters will as well.
To start off, the state is no longer funding construction
and improvements to public schools as it used to not
even when those expansions are needed. Basically, the
Florida Legislature is telling counties that they have to
find ways to build their own schools.
The majority of the state's voters demanded more
schools when they passed the Class Size Amendment to
the Florida Constitution, which set a limit on the number
of students a class can contain. Those same voters should
not be surprised to find themselves faced with paying
more taxes to have what they want.
On top of that, most counties are struggling to accom-
modate a student population that gets bigger every year.
Here in Highlands County, enrollment grew by 3 1/2 per-
cent last year alone. During the 2004-05 school year,
12,000 students were enrolled in the county's public
schools, and projections indicate that in 20 years that
number will rise to 21,000.
Look around the county, and you'll see signs of the
demand for education. There are now 127 portable class-
rooms sitting on public school campuses 80 of those
added in the last two years. The school board hopes to
build seven new schools five elementary, one middle
and one high school.
Building classrooms alone won't be enough. Schools
will need "more" of every service they provide from
the dining to physical recreation to administration. More
computers and instructional classroom equipment will be
needed, More-,equipment will be required for vocational
prograns,e athletic programs and band.
In the past, the cost of funding public schools has
largely fallen to property owners through an annual tax
assessment. Today it's no wonder that many members of
the Highlands County Homeowners Association are
behind the sales tax hike. The cost of public schools
shouldn't be theirs alone to bear.
As The School Board of Highlands County has pro-
posed it, the additional tax will be paid only on the first
$5,000 of the cost of an item. For example, if a person
buys a new $20,000 car, they will pay the half-cent tax
on $5,000 and not the full amount of the purchase.
The half-cent tax is projected to raise $159 million in
20 years. After that, due to a sunset clause, the tax will
expire unless voters choose to re-enact it. By then, tax-
payers will have a chance to review whether it accom-
plished what they wanted it to and abolish it if they think
it didn't.
Some opponents argue that the school system should
simply trim its belt although we wonder how it can do
that and expand services at the same time. Some say they
contribute $1 to education every time they buy a lottery
ticket -when the truth is, they don't. Most Florida
Lottery revenues goes to paying off lottery winners and
promoting the lottery. In Highlands County, as a matter
of fact, a mere 3 percent of the public school budget
comes from the Florida Lottery.
We support the half-cent sales tax hike for three rea-
sons: The money will be earmarked for infrastructure and
equipment, it will apply to everyone who purchases
goods in Highlands County, and it will come with an
expiration date.
This seems like a fair and reasonable way for the pub-
lic to support public education. Residents of 58 of the
state's 67 counties must think so, too, because they have
already raised their sales taxes to pay for public schools.


Letters ,policy

Make sure to sign your letter and include your address and
phone number. Only your name and the city you live in will be
published, but we need to be able to get in touch with you for
.verification and in case there are any questions.
Please keep your letters to a maximum of 400 words. We have
to make room for everybody. Guest columns are preferred to be
around 800 words.
When your letter is signed, sealed and ready to be delivered,
write to 2227 U.S. 27 South, Sebring, FL 33870; drop it off at the
same address;'fax 385-1954; or e-mail editor@newssun.com.
To make sure the ,editorial pages aren't dominated by the same
writers, letters are limited to two per month and a guest column
can be submitted once every three months.
All items will run on a first-come basis as space permits,
although more timely ones could be moved up. Letters will be
edited for good taste, grammar, length and libel, although we try
to retain the overall flavor of the writer's style. Guest columns
are usually in a more prominent position and will be edited to a
higher standard.
We believe your viewpoints are just as important as any com-
munity leader or government official, so consider this a person-
al invitation to get your two cents in. The News-Sun has a long


history of encouraging public discussion through letters, guest
columns, and Reader's Response questionnaires. Providing this
forum for our readers is a pleasure, not an obligation.

Why punish

those trying?

Editor:
I have a question about one
of our government agencies. It
is the Child Support Agency
and my question is, "What's
Sron g with this picture ?" .,
Here ik the scenario Ni\
\ile and I are grandparent's
who are raising our grandchil-
dren. We have them (grandchil-
dren) because they (parents)
are not together and neither one
can take care of them (each has
a separate reason why). We
have had the children since the
baby was 3 weeks old and
she'll be 2 in July.
The father, our son, has been
paying child support since we
were given custody, with a few
lapses here and there because
of unemployment and home-
lessness. When he has paid, he
has always overpaid by $20. He
is now behind around $700
over an approximate two-year
span. He knows this and is
attempting to pay.
He was just recently
employed about a month ago.
At this time he told the Child
Support Agency he would
resume paying the ordered sup-
port plus $20 to catch up on
arrearage. Recently he didn't
make enough to pay the total
amount promised, but he did
send in the ordered support
amount. This put him sending
$20 less than what he prom-
ised. He received a letter from
the agency today stating he was
short $99 over the ordered
amount and they were going to
pursue enforcement and possi-
ble legal action.
Here's the problem: He
negated sending $20 not $99;
he is attempting to pay, but they
want to punish him, (it's kind
of hard to send $XX plus $20
extra when your paycheck was
only enough to pay the ordered
amount, but he still took the
incentive to pay what he
could).
(At the sending of this letter,
my son's situation has been
resolved, but I still want others
to be aware of a situation they
might encounter in the future.)
The second half of this prob-
lem is the mother hasn't paid a
dime, or helped out with dia-
pers or anything, since the day


that is part of it too.
Is it having a sister
around who knows
every single button
you have, knows just
how to push them,
and then knows just
how to look patheti-
cally sweet and inno-
cent when your par-
ents come back after
she has done her
worst on you? Yes, I
guess that is it too.
Is it being able to
borrow your dad's


we took custody of the babies
and she is currently $8,000 in
arrears. The funny'thing is, the
Child Support Agency hasn't
done "anything," enforcement
or otherwise to her. They say
they send her letters and that
she responds and is under
enforcement now, but I haven't
.-received any support from her.
I don't kno\\. man be if there-
are others out there who are
being punished for doing their
best, maybe they can help shine
some light on this backwards
way of enforcing child support
cases and maybe some of the
dead-beat parents can be pur-
sued instead of the parents who
are actually trying. Again,
"Why do they go after the par-
ents trying and not do anything
to the dead-beat parents"?

Many help art

league's success

Editor:
What a wonderful Student
Art Show we have just con-
cluded along'with a superb
annual general meeting.
At our 2005 Student Art
Show we had 146 student
artists displaying their cre-
ations with a record amount of
over $2,000 in prize monies
that we were able to award.
Such wonderful talent these
young people exhibit! A spe-
cial thanks to Peggy Miller and
her committee for organizing
our show!
Kudos to Sunny Fuller for
her organization of the best
annual general meeting we
have had to date! This year's
event was a more informal time
of old-fashioned "meeting and
greeting" and was very well
attended. Highlands County
Commissioner Bob Bullard
was present to dedicate our
Legacy Tiles at our ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony. Mother Nature
showed her presence with a bit
of wind and a few sprinkles but
the weather held off for our
evening of enjoyment at the
Museum and the Village
Courtyard.
The business side of the
annual general meeting was the
election of our Highlands art


car and running it to nearly
,empty and then leaving it in the
driveway for him to fill up
while you look sheepish and
give him a hug while telling
him how great it is to be home?
Of course not, I would never,
ever stoop to something as low
and immature as that. After all,.
I just got back from college; I
have become a man.
I now pay to get my laundry
done, none of this (Emooch off

Leter


I remember that I slept very
little the week before I got mar-
ried.
To state that I was nervous
would not even begin to
describe it. I had spent the last
several months planning a wed-
ding long distance (I was living
in Kansas but Don and I were
getting married in Tampa). I
was a month shy of 25, and felt
younger than that. There was a
lot of stuff still to be done.
I loved Don, and knew he
loved me. Still, marriage was a
big step. We were both entering
unknown territory here. You
can read and talk to married
people to try to get clues but it
was still new and maybe just a
little scary.
I wasn't scared enough to
call it all off, though. History
will show that the marriage
took place as scheduled, almost
without a hitch (someone mis-
placed the rice and there was a
mad dash to get some to send
us off with) and after 22 years
we still love each other and
don't regret going through with
it.
I tell you all this to explain
that in a small way I can under-
stand what might have motivat-
ed Jennifer Wilbanks to pull a
vanishing act four days before
her wedding. Her disappear-
ance made headlines for a few
days as police searched for her
and questioned her fiance.
When she turned up in New
Mexico, she first claimed she
had been kidnapped, then
admitted she had just made a
run for it.
"Understand" does not mean
"excuse," however. OK, she's
a grown woman. We live in a
free society where she can
legally travel anywhere in the
country she pleases. She is not
legally obligated to tell anyone
where she's going.
Even so, there are moral
obligations that were ignored
here. I can understand her not
wanting to talk to the groom-
to-be; telling your fiance that
you might not want to go
through with marrying him is a
tough message to deliver. But
nothing prevented her from
calling her mom, for example,
and saying something to the
effect of "I'm OK, I just need
to get my head together, and I'll
be in touch." Granted, her mom
might have then tried to play 20
questions with her,, but the
Duluth police would not have
conducted a search for her and
her family and friends would
not have been worried sick.
As I type this, the county dis-
trict attorney is thinking about
filing charges against
Wilbanks, who was supposed
to make some kind of statement
later this week. A lot of people
in Duluth, while glad nothing
sinister happened to the run-
away bride, are mad at her for
pulling this in the first place.
So what should be done to
Wilbanks? I understand people
being mad and all that, and I'm
all for holding people responsi-
ble for their actions. However,
it seems to me that jailing her is
a little bit over the top, given
she is hardly a danger to herself
or others.
Yes, let her suffer some con-
sequences for her behavior -
no doubt she is doing so
already. I am sure her parents
have given her an earful. Her
fiance surely had some words
for her. And the community has
made their feelings pretty plain.
Some have suggested that
she reimburse the city for the
costs in searching for her. I like
this idea. Her parents had post-
ed a $100,000 reward for infor-
mation leading to her being
found why not donate that to
the Duluth cops in gratitude?
Give Wilbanks some communi-
ty service to pay back the coun-
ty for caring about her, search-
ing for her and praying for her.
But with all that, wish her
well. Jennifer Wilbanks is not
the first person to consider run-
ning from a stressful situation.
Unfortunately, she wasn't
strong enough to say no to the
impulse.

DANIEL
Continued from 22A
Jose! Yeah that is right, I
pay for the laundry, ladies,
to "do it myself."
I am now all grown. I
have learned how to cook
nearly any prepackaged
meal using only a
microwave, toaster and
iron.
I have learned exactly
how to lie in a bed at night
so as to get at least two
months of use out of a sin-
gle set of sheets.
I have learned the art of
finding the skinniest girls in
a cafeteria line and giving
them the privilege of buy-
ing food for me on their
meal card so as to not waste
any of my parents hard
earned money.
I have learned the art of
bi-weekly rotations when
borrowing cars from people
so as to not wear out your
welcome.
But, most importantly, I,
Daniel Bedell, using the
new found mental capacity
given me by a liberal arts
college education, have
learned that matching socks
are way overrated and if
you turn them inside out
you can use them for at
least another three days.


It may amaze some of
you that with all these tal-
ents, skills and potential
that I have not been able to
find a girlfriend at college.
But you would be wrong if
you thought that was
because I can't get one, it is
simply because my stan-
dards are obviously way too
high. Sometimes this can be
annoying, but it is some-
thing I am learning to live
with.
I must admit though, it is
tough to find the right kind
of girl. A girl who will play
sports with you while talk-
ing about the meaning of
life, a girl who will go on
long walks while talking
about the meaning of life, a
girl who will wrestle with
you after talking about the
meaning of life, a girl who
will still talk to you after
you give her a noogie, bit
her, and put your shirt over
her head after you ate a box
of 100 percent fruit popsi-
cles in under 10 minutes.
Women like that are rare
indeed. Sometimes, in
moments of self doubt and
depression, I wonder if they
exist at all.
Are there girls out there
who can switch from a
sweaty tennis game to the
meaning of life, to deep.
investigation of the humor
properties of Pinky and the


Brain, to cutting me orange
slices and then passionately
kissing my pulp covered
lips? Mind you, they have
to be dang good at the ten-
nis thing, can't have all that
"let-them-win" sissy junk.
So, are there any females
out there like that, ones who
aren't named Helga and are
in the Russian military?
Honestly, I am not sure, and
I am not totally sure if
wanting that makes me as
shallow as the Alabama
gene pool. Am I aiming
high or just living in a male
la la land?
See, these questions are
hard. I want a woman who
can help me figure them
out. And I promise in the
mean time I will keep her
lips laughing and her fridge
full of 100 percent fruit
juice popsicles, the ones
with little chunks of fruit
that melt in your mouth and
hint at perhaps what heaven
will be like.

Whether we were ready for
him or not, Daniel Bedell
has returned home from
college for the summer. He
was a News-Sun corre-
spondent and columnist
prior to his departure for
college, and picks up his
writing for the News-Sun
while he is home on summer
break.

Another anti-American pope


Now that the media has
made the Roman Catholic GU
Church the official religion GUEST
of the United States, it
Dale
might be wise to look at Dal
the last pope's legacy. It
isn't possible to name a hundred
sects combined that get the press
coverage that the Roman Catholic
Church receives.
In 1999, Dr. Joaquin Vals of the
Vatican Press Office called NATO's
bombing of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi
military "aggression." So what is
NATO supposed to do? In
Yugoslavia, Pope John Paul con-
demned ethnic cleansing but also
repeatedly condemned NATO
bombing intended to stop genocide.
These facts are mentioned by Drew
Christiansen, a Jesuit, in America
magazine for May 15, 1999.
The press always refers to John
Paul as a man of great learning. Yet
on Yugoslavia he offered nothing
but condemnation for everyone,
peacekeepers included, without
nuances. This is a man of learning?
He falls into the typical pacifistic
errors, claiming that negotiation is a
magic wand that solves problems.
In reality, the only negotiation that
works is backed by the threat of
force.
John Paul had a rather negative
attitude toward NATO and one of
its key members, the United States.
He leaned closer to pacifism than
any other previous Pope. He denied
that he was a pacifist in 1991, when
he opposed the first Persian Gulf
War.
Nonviolence led to the fall of
communism, John Paul told us. It
didn't occur to him that commu-
nism fell because excessive control
is resented. As an economic system,
communism was inflexible, sup-
pressed innovation and wasted
resources propping up failed enter-


C
,6


prises. Christiansen
explains that the pope
IOLUMN viewed the secular world
order as gripped by a "cul-
Gillis ture of death." He warned
that violence gives "the
illusion of fighting evil." Further,
he believed that those who "accept
suffering" are the ones who know
how to properly resist evil.
What are we to make of this?
John Paul seems to claim that those
who suffer are above logic; that
they alone know what to do. He
probably saw himself as one who
accepted suffering, after being shot.
This is dangerous, self-centered and
unrealistic thinking.
Official Catholicism is a bit con-
fused on the whole question of
democracy. The New Advent
Catholic Encyclopedia says that
"Christian Democracy" goes back
to the time of Constantine when
clergy set up orphanages and nurs-
ing homes. They prefer to define
democracy as charity. In other
words, the Catholic Encyclopedia
hasn't got a clue what democracy is.
The same article tells us that
"Christian Democracy" can never
favor monarchy or republics or any
form of government. Even today,
Catholicism refuses to say that
democracy is better than absolute
monarchy.
Opposition to capital punishment
is basically a form of pacifism. John
Paul's opposition to capital punish-
ment must be understood in this
light.
Thomas Aquinas is not only a
saint but a posthumous doctor ofthe
church, an honor handed out much
more rarely. Aquinas is called the
angelic doctor and his writings sup-
port the use of the death penalty in
at least six places.
What does the Bible say? When
David was on his deathbed, he


charged Solomon to deal with Joab
on the account of the murders of
Abner and Amasa. In the case of
Abner, Joab killed him for having
killed Joab's brother in battle while
the two were on different sides. In
the case of Amasa, Joab was deImot-
ed and killed his replacement. For
one of the two killings, Joab had a
better reason than most murderers.
Yet David condemns Joab, saying
that he shed "blood in peacetime as
if in battle." (1 Kings 2:5-6).
Solomon says that Joab killed two
men who "were better men and
more upright than he." (1 Kings
2:30). Solomon's position is that the
bad cannot be allowed to kill the
good, society cannot afford it.
Fearing execution, Joab lays his
hands on the horns of the altar in the
Temple. Unimpressed by this resort
to religion, Solomon orders that he
be struck down at the spot. (1 Kings
2:29-35). The Old Testament tells
us that a man cannot live an irreli-
gious life, killing his fellows and'
then invoke God's protection at the
last moment. Nothing in the New.
Testament changes this.
There are 48 execution com-
mands in the Old Testament besides
the verses just referred to.
If suffering confers special sta-
tus, the pope's pain is no greater
than some of the things that hap-
-pened to King David.
John Paul's vehement objection
to capital punishment puts him in
opposition to all previous popes, St.
Thomas Aquinas and the Bible
itself. In Benedict XVI we can
expect another America-bashing
pacifist pope, one with no answers
to the world's difficulties.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
May 9, 2000: On the
strength of two home runs
by starting pitcher Brett
Cimorelli, state Class 4A
No. 2 Zephyrhills ended
Sebring's run with a 6-3
victory in the South Region
II championship game.
Sebring drew first blood
against the nation's ninth-
ranked team on Mike
Ritter's two-run single in
the second inning, but fell
behind in the third.
10 Years Ago
May 9, 1995: Avon Park
knocked a season-high four
home runs versus defend-
ing state champ Palmetto to
earn a 9-3 sub-region victo-
ry and avenge a loss to the
same Tigers the year
before. Nate Vanderpool
had two of the blasts, while
Nate Perry and Doug
Lemler had the others.

Rotary gets first win while Firemen turn away challenge


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Upsets were brewing Friday night at
Max Long Recreational Complex, and while the
Firemen managed to turn away a challenge from one
winless team, Bayview wasn't so lucky.
Rotary used a gutsy pitching performance from
Steven Dunn and got the winning run from T.J.
McGlinchy in the top of the seventh inning to shock
Bayview, 6-5, while the Firemen scored seven runs in
the fifth inning to pull away from Highlands Today for
a 17-7 win in Dixie Youth Majors action.
"We needed that one," Rotary coach Pat Hargaden
said after his team got its first win after five straight
losses to open the season. "The Rotary curse is over."
Hargaden said his team played with a lot of energy,
but none more than Dunn, who worked all seven
innings and struck out nine, including the final out of
the game with the tying run on third.
"He came to me before the game and said 'I want
this game. Don't pull me,' Hargaden said. "So we
gave it to him."
Rotary opened the game with a two-run first when
Anthony Hargaden singled to drive in Eric Dunn and
then later scored on a wild pitch, but Bayview (3-3)
got a run back in the bottom of the first on a Ryan
McNew double and Danny Ware's RBI groundout.


Steven Dunn and Bayview starter Ware who
struck out eight in four innings kept the score there
until the fourth inning, when Donovan White walked
and later scored on a wild pitch to put Rotary up by
two before Bayview came storming back with four
runs in the bottom of the inning.
Ware doubled and later stole home, Josh Gomez
reached on a fielder's choice and scored on Alex
Griffin's bases-loaded walk and Ricky Rivera's
grounder turned into a two-run error to make it 5-3.
Zach Maloyed walked and scored on an error in the
fifth and Hargaden's single to right with one out in the
top of the sixth drove in Eric Dunn with the tying run
for Rotary.
McGlinchy put Rotary in the lead by drawing a
leadoff walk in the seventh and working his way
around on three wild pitches, the final one with two
outs.
Firemen 17
Highlands Today 7
Highlands Today put up a fight, but the Firemen,
locked in a three-way battle for first place with the
Lions and the Elks, weie up to the task thanks to big
nights from Jesse Baker and James Heston.

Blue Streaks

winners in Blue

Streak Classic
By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK It was only
fitting that Cody Brownell,
Matt Cornuet, Jocelyn Dunn
and Amanda Myers won the
22nd annual Blue Streak
Classic Saturday. After all, all
four of them were Blue Streak
golfers last season.
The foursome, playing
together as a scramble team for
the first time, scorched the
Highlands Ridge-North course
for a 19-under 53 that, with
minus 10 percent of their team
handicap (2.6), netted a 50.4
for a one-stroke win in the first
flight.
"We had a great day. We
were just all coming through
with great shots at the right
time," Cornuet said. "We
parred our first hole and we
never looked back after that.
"It's the first time we've
played with the girls in a
scramble. Usually, it's four
guys. They gave us a big
advantage off the tee that
helped us out all day."
Mike Shawver, Art Jones,
Lamon Money and Jim Spath
came in second in the first
flight with 51.4 (54 gross), fol-
lowed by Larry Bush, John
Dean, John Snyder and Aaron
Snyder with 51.9 (57).
The second-lowest score of
the 32 teams in the tournament
actually came from the second
flight winners, as Steve Swan,
Pete Dillon, Steve Guelff and
Mike Lamp carded a 58 with a
7.2 handicap for a net 50.8.
Dave Cunningham, Charlie
Wright, Ted Boehme and
Randy Proctor took second
with 51.9 (59) and the team of
Pat Dell, Page Lewis, Joan
Lewis and Eric Trees was third
with 52.2 (5.8).

Streaks top

Lemon Bay

to win 14-4A

championship
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Hoppy Rewis
turns into a different person in
May.
Instead of long outfield
speeches to his team after the
game or directing his attention
towards another baseball-relat-
ed problem, the fifth-year
coach usually spends most
playoff wins circling the field,
hunting down friends or rela-
tives.
Friday night was no differ-
ent, after Rewis' Sebring Blue
Streaks beat Lemon Bay 3-1 to
win the District 14-4A champi-
onship at Firemen's Field.
Maybe it's easy to enjoy a 6-1
district tournament record over
the past two years.
"They're all important but
this one is definitely very spe-
cial because we've got four
seniors and a bunch of sopho-
mores and some freshman and
juniors," Rewis said. "A lot of
great ones and the others, a lot
of hard workers." "
In between passes Friday
night, Rewis had enough time
to rave about Rudy Levocz, his
junior pitcher who delivered a
complete-game win
"It seems like it's every year
somebody steps up, it really
does, and tonight it was Rudy,"
Rewis said. "If you win this
district, someone's got to step
up real big. We got a great
effort out of Rudy and he did a

great job throwing strikes and
we made the plays when we
had to. He was the most
focused I've seen him all year
long."
"I felt real good tonight and
my team played behind me,"
said Levocz, who struck out
five. "Coach asked me before
the game to give my heart and
I did and they gave me their
hearts, too."
Sebring (19-8) will now
host the Class 4A playoff
opener Tuesday at 7 p.m.
against Bradeiton Bayshore,
the District 13-4A runner-up
after a 4-3 loss to Bradenton
Southeast on Friday.
Kiko Vazquez, who was
intentionally walked twice on
the night, ripped a fourth
inning homer to put Sebring
ahead 3-0. His ninth homer of

DEVILS
Continued from 1B
Hill took a no-hitter into the
sixth against Hardee to lift the
third-seeded Bulldogs (18-8)
into the title game with a 4-0
win, the Devils (15-12) cut
loose on three other pitchers
with five multi-hit performanc-
es and an eight-run fourth.
"They hit balls that found
holes. They put the ball in play,
and they found holes, and that's
high school baseball," DeSoto
head coach Whit Cornell said.
"When they find holes and we
don't, it generally doesn't work
out good for us."
No. 9 hitter Devaris Strange
and cleanup man Taiwan Perry
both went 3-for-3 to lead the
way, while Robert Lewis,
Michael Diaz and Johnny
Sedlock had two hits apiece.
Chavious Gordon had only one
hit, but it was a three-run dou-
ble that put the Devils up 10-0
in the fourth.
That support was more than
enough for Billy Dobson-(5-3),
who turned in what Jackson
called the team's second-best
pitching performance of the
year despite surrendering con-
secutive singles to start the
game.
"Billy Dobson has got more
heart and guts than most teams
do, and he's one kid," Jackson
said. "When Billy's on as a
pitcher, and when he's tough,
and when he's playing in the
field, he's the same way.
"He never backs down, he
never shies away from any-
thing, and that's why he pitched
today."
Dobson retired the next nine
in a row after the inauspicious
start, and allowed the only
DeSoto runs in the fifth, after
his team was already up 11-0,
and after he had waited through
the eight-run fourth.
Perry singled home the
championship-clinching run in
the bottom of the fifth, and
Jackson celebrated the school's
34th district trophy with one of
his favorite Red Devil teams,
which begins the playoffs
Tuesday at home against
Tampa Robinson (16-10).
"This team is the tepamthat's
peaking at the right time, and
we're coming together' at, the
right time," the coach said.
Avon Park 3
Mulberry 2
No matter how many times
you roll the dice, Avon Park
always came out one better
than Mulberry.
The Red Devils posted their
third one-run victory over the
Panthers of the season 3-2
Friday night in the District 10-
3A semifinals at Lake Placid,
and wrapped up their 13th
playoff berth in 14 years.
"They've got a good ball-
club," Avon Park head coach
Mort Jackson said. "It's been a
battle all year, and that's our
third one-run game with them,
and we're just fortunate we
came out on the victory side
every time."
Johnny Sedlock had plenty
to do with keeping the Devils
(14-12) in the win column,
pitching a complete-game four-
hitter in which he allowed no
earned runs and struck out
eight.
"That's Johnny. He's 8-1
now, and he's pitched like that
every time," Jackson said. "The
only time he didn't was when
his arm was a little tender, and
that's when he got his only loss.
Other than that, Johnny is just a
bulldog."
Catcher Luke Sedlock,
Johnny's cousin, delivered a
two-out, two-RBI double in the
fourth to erase, a 1-0 Mulberry
lead, and two batters later, Lee
Albritton's infield single scored
Robert Lewis with what proved
to be the winning run.
Josh Thorton (5-5), who
absorbed his fourth one-run
loss on the mound, scored
Mulberry's second run on an
outfield error in the fifth, but


the Panthers (15-11) never got
another runner in scoring posi-
tion.

Travers and Chris Myers. won
the third flight with a 54.0 (64),

Kyle Jackson of Avon Park draws a bead on a pitch Friday at
Max Long Recreational Complex. Jackson's team, Heartland

in the Highlands County Dixie Boys league. Shevas Hicks had 11

Campbell home with a ground-

Vazquez then followed up
with a tater to center field in the
next inning to give Sebring the
3-0 lead before Lemon Bay
scratched out what would be
their first and final run in the
sixth on a Ryan Brew RBI sin-
gle to left.
Levocz then got a groundout
to end the inning and sat down
the Manta Rays in order, finish-
ing with a strikeout to end the


game in what he hopes won't be
the three most important outs of
his career.
"Hopefully not, hopefully
not. I've got more to come," he
said.-"But I was just thinking-
'three more outs,' that's it."
"I think this is the most
improved year (of any team),"
Rewis said. "We always seem
to start out slow and we use the
first two (preseason) tourna-
ments to start out a little bit.
"It's been a grinding year.
Our kids aren't any different
than anybody else, we've had
hurricanes and stuff and every-
body's that way. But it's been a
grinding year, it really has."


Report: Nash will be NBA's MVP


The Associated Press
Steve Nash of the Phoenix
Suns has .won the NBA's Most
Valuable Player award, sources
told The Associated Press on
Friday.
The award will be announced
today, and the league office has
been silent regarding any
details of the announcement.
Two sources close to Nash,
speaking on condition of


anonymity, said they had been
notified that the Canadian star
had won. .
Nash becomes only the fifth
guard in league history to win
the award, joining Bob Cousy,
Oscar Robertson, Magic
Johnson, Allen Iverson and
Michael Jordan. The 31-year-
old joined the Suns last summer
as a free agent after six seasons
with the Dallas M'adverickK.'

It is disturbing to hear of the
plight of Lake Okeechobee,
our state's largest bass-produc-
ing lake, due to last year's hur-
ricanes. The lake had its share
of troubles before the hurri-
canes, but their onslaught
churned up the heavy layer of
pollution from the bottom that
in turn gave the water a dark
coffee color.
This is not good news for
the water supply of nearby
communities. The multi-billion
dollar Everglades Restoration
is also in jeopardy, not to men-
tion the threat to fish and
plants that make the big lake
their home.
According to some, the lake
will undergo a worsening
change as the summer comes,
Today, few bass fishermen are
venturing out on the ailing
lake. At Pahokee, Mayor J.P.
Sasser said the lake will.turn
green and slimy, much like a
science fiction movie, and then
no one will want to go boating
on the lake.
The hurricanes pounded the
lake with a total of five and a
half feet of rain. This added
depth and the muck spread
throughout the lake, shutting
out the sunlight the plants
growing from the bottom need
in order to help keep the pol-
luted bottom in place.
There is a dire need to
release some of Okeechobee's
excess water, but those who
manage the lake say there is no
place to put the water. The hur-
ricane season starts anew in
just a few weeks and with pos-
sibly heavy rains, little
improvement is anticipated
until next spring.
State lawmakers are
attempting to set aside an extra
$25 million to assist Lake
Okeechobee in its efforts to
rebound from the past hurri-
canes. Pahokee's economy
went into a slow tailspin years
ago and, along with other com-
munities in the area, has never
really recovered. Most of the

hunters can go on big game
hunting expeditions at taxpay-
ers' expense. How do they do
it? They donate their trophies
to non-profit organizations as
charitable gifts.
These mounted heads and
skins are often appraised at far
more than their market value
and the Wyobraska museum at
Gering, Neb., has been more
than willing to accept them.
The museum's curator said that
the value of donations grew to
more than $5 million in 2004,
even though display rooms
were overflowing. A
menagerie of 800 stuffed ani-
mals in a rail car behind the
museum arrived just last year.
What makes charitable giv-
ing so popular with hunters is
that their trophies are being
appraised at top dollar, often
using a donor-friendly "cost of
replacement" method that esti-
mates how much the hunter
would have to pay to take the
same quarry again. When the
museum sends these donated
trophies to an auction house to
be sold, they average bringing
only about 10 percent of the
amount the hunter was allowed
to write off his taxes.
James Merrigan, president
of the Wyobraska Museum
board of directors, said his
museum sold mounts with an
appraised value of $4.2 million
for about $67,000, according
to its 2003 tax report. He also
says the system needs to be
reviewed.
It is this kind of abuse that
turns the public against chari-
table giving. Too often, the tro-
phies hunted are endangered
animals illegally brought into
this country. It is time to put a
stop to this shady action that
profits well-to-do hunters at
the expense of honest taxpay-
ers and defenseless wild ani-
mals.

small family farms sold out to
large sugar companies and due
to their mechanized harvesting,
workers lost their jobs and the
economy never recovered.
Hopefully, the hurricane
season will be much kinder to
the lake and the surrounding
area this year and for years to
come. Given time and a respite
from the weather, maybe
Okeechobee's 730 square
miles can once again be the
premier bass fishing lake it
once was.
ME.
I lived for a short time in the
great Northwest and during
that time I did a little big-game
hunting. I never really
acquired the skills of those
hunters that we see today on
television. They make baffling
long-range shots with very
expensive equipment and bring
down great trophy animals. I
wasn't so lucky.
In a way, I am glad that I
didn't detract from the popula-
tion of the big game in either
the Wenatchee Mountains or
the Cascade Range. As I relat-
ed in an earlier column, a large
bull elk so charmed me with
his wild beauty that I lowered
my rifle and passed up the
chance to hang his huge rack
on my wall.
Now I read that so-called
sportsmen are traveling all
over the globe in pursuit of '
big-game animals and turning
their trophy mounts into
income tax write-offs. Wealthy

Dixie Youth Baseball o


Delaney racks up 17



strikeouts in one-hitter I


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID Right-hander Colby
Delaney was about as dominant as can be against
Lake Placid Marine from the mound Friday
night, striking out 17 batters and giving up just
one hit to push Delaney Fence to a 5-0 victory.
Delaney has a blistering fastball that reaches
speeds of 76 mph, and he mixed his velocity and
hit his spots to near perfection at the Lake June
Ball Fields Friday. Considering there are only a
possible 18 outs in a game, striking out 17 was a
huge feat and not many Delaney Fence players
got to touch the ball, except for Delaney and
catcher Gio Rosario.
Delaney Fence, the second-place team in the
five-team league, scored the winning run in the
bottom of the second inning. Cannon Bobo
walked and scored on an error off the bat of
Delaney. Two stolen bases, the final one home
plate, put Delaney Fence on top 2-0.
Though they didn't get a lot of hits themselves,
Delaney Fence got three extra-base hits and a sin-
gle at opportune times. Benny Aguilar tripled and
scored on an error in the third to make it 3-0, and
Delaney doubled and stole home in the fourth to
raise the score to 4-0. Cody Tiner, who singled in
the second, reached base on an error in the fifth
inning and scored on another error.
Jacob Underwood pitched the first three
innings for Lake Placid Marine, giving up three
unearned runs on one hit, an error and two walks.
Dylan Hayes broke up Delaney's no-hit bid when
he led off the top of the sixth inning with a single
to shallow right field. Delaney, who already has
one no-hitter this season, responded by striking
out the side after walking Underwood. Kirk
Veley pitched the fourth and fifth innings for
Lake Placid Marine, giving up two runs on two
hits (doubles).
Miller Central Air 12
Beef O'Brady's 7
Beef O'Brady's staged a strong comeback to
tie the game 6-6 in the bottom of the fourth
inning, but first place Miller Central Air tacked
on a six-run fifth inning to cruise to a 12-7 victo-
ry Friday night.
With the scored tied 6-6, Rufino Gutierrez led
off the top of the fifth inning with a single off
reliever Adrian Mireles. Eric Guterez singled fol-
lowing two strikeouts. Ricky Miller, Brody Carr,
Dillon Callahan and Patrick Conklin followed
with singles to raise the lead to 12-6. Gutierrez
finished 3-for,4 with two runs and an RBI.
Callahan, the-winning pitcher, went 3-for-4 with
two RBIs and two runs scored, and Carr was 3-
for-3 with a pair of RBIs and runs himself.
Callahan, a right-hander, scattered six hits over
the six-inning game to get the impressive victory.
"My fastball was my best pitch," Callahan said
after the game. "It took a while for me to get
warmed up, but by the last inning I was feeling
really good." Callahan struck out nine batters and
walked three to notch the complete-game win.
Miller Central Air jumped out to a 4-0 lead in
the top of the first inning. Ricky Miller and


JEFF CANTWELL/News-Sun
Colby Delaney fanned 17 batters out of 18 pos-
sible outs Friday night.

Brody Carr drew walks off starter Phillip "Pike"
Cloninger and Callahan drove both runners home
with a triple down the right-field line. Wade
Bowlin, who went 2-for-3, delivered a RBI single
to right field with one out to drive in Callahan.
Gutierrez also singled and scored off reliever
Clayton Mason.
Beef O'Brady's came storming back to close
the deficit to 4-3. Mireles and Mason both sin-
gled with one out and scored on a booming triple
by Cloninger. Scott Cantwell drove in Cloninger
with a grounder to first base. Carr singled to open
the second and scored on Bowlin's second single.
Guterez walked and scored on Carr's single in the
third to raise the lead to 6-3.
Once again Beef O'Brady's answered the call
and scored three runs to tie the game. Cantwell
and Edwin "E.J." Velazquez Jr. both singled to
.right field with one out, and Robert Komasa
walked. Cantwell's lead drew an overthrow
throw to third, and he scored while the runner
advanced. Velazquez and Komasa also stole
home on wild pitches to tie the game at 6.
The wheels then fell off of the Beef O'Brady's
wagon and Miller's Central Air took full advan-
tage. Cloninger, who has two home runs this sea-
son, doubled to open the bottom of the sixth, and
used his speed to steal third and home to finish
off the scoring.
Cloninger had Beef's only multi-hit game,
going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI.
For Miller's, which outhit the home team 15-6,
Ricky Miller and Bowlin added two hits apiece.


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Steven Dunn pitched all seven innings, in Rotary's win Friday.

Jonathan Knight went 2-for-
3 with a double, a triple and a
pair of RBIs and Dane Maddox

the Firemen offense.

runs in the second inning on
singles by Zach Osha and
Garrett Aul, added a Tyler
Shingle RBI single in the third.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

The give and take
of a mom's heart
A mother's calling is per-
manent; even if loss has been
part of the journey. She's
always tuned in. The calling
cycles and changes yet it's
constant.
As moms, we cherish the
memories of when our chil-
dren saw us as the center of
their world. We loved, nur-
tured and protected them -
teaching them all we knew.
We tucked them in at night;
held them when they cried.
We took them by the hand
and went to church, library
hour and the park.
Gradually, they shook
loose from our grip. Before
we knew it, we left them at
college, waved goodbye as
they boarded a bus with their
military buddies, or wiped at
an escaping tear when they
said their marriage vows.
Yet, our calling had
demanded exactly this that
we raise godly citizens to
fulfill their purpose, inde-
pendent of us and capable of
contributing to society.
It's always been about
holding on tightly only to
let go liberally. A difficult
thing for the nurturing spirit
God has given moms espe-
cially if we've had to let
them go to heaven.
My "daughter-in-love,"
Heather, once gave me a
poem that spoke of the giv-
ing nature of mom alongside
the aspect of what mom
took.
It reminded me that as a
Mom, when I took them by
the hand and taught them;
when I took my hands and
gently gave them a tender
push along the way; when I
took them with me to.chtirch
and directed them toward
-their.Creator; when I took
the time to pray I gave in
the best way a mom could.
As I watch our children
parenting, it's gratifying to
see that they are practicing
the "give and take" of par-
enting. It's the way in which
children thrive and become
all God has created them to
be.
I guess it's true that once
we become moms, we wear
our hearts on the outside for
the rest of our lives. When
our children are grown, the
job description shifts and we
wait in the wings, available
on a different level; or, to
help another along the way.
Most importantly, we need
to pray for our children and
grandchildren as long as we
have breath. We can continue
"taking" them to our
Heavenly Father knowing he
loves them even more than
we do. And as we do so,
we're reminded, "Train a
child in the way he should
go, and when he is old he
will not turn from it."
(Proverbs 22: 6, NIV)
"Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with
all your soul and with all
your strength. These com-
mandments are to be upon
your hearts. Impress them on
your children."
(Deuteronomy 6: 5 & 7a,
NIV) *
Give, them your all; but,
"take" them to the cross of
Jesus and teach them to love
him above all. Selah.

Pamela and Keith Schlarf open themusic box that holds moments
of their son, Joshua, who only lived a couple of hours after his birth.
The hat in Keith's hand demonstrates the tiny size of their infant
son while the music of an Irish lullaby gently plays.



A mustard




seed of hope

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
he blue balloon drifted toward the sun as it wel-
Scomed a new day.
The beach was quiet. Only two souls stirred at
this hour intimately joined in love for one another,
God and their precious son, Joshua.
It had been one year since his birth and his death.
The time had come to bring closure. So the couple arrived at the
pre-dawn hour, spread out a blanket and prepared a parting cere-
mony.
Nestled between them was a beautiful wooden music box that
pla. ed a simple Irish lullaby. But the box also held a sealed gold
container shaped like a Bible which kept safe the remains of
their bdby son.
Careful the mother took out the gold container and removed
the tiny plastic bag filled with his ashes. Tearfully, she tied it to
the balloon. Then she put a tiny tear in the bag. As the balloon
left on its journey, the ashes caressed the ocean waters and
mom and dad tossed a single rose into its foamy waves.

Love expressed
Every Near since then. Keith and Pamela Schlarf go to the
beach on Joshua's birthday adding one rose each year. They hate
tossed seven roses into the sea in memory of their son. A -on they
loved and spoke to while he was still in her \\omb. A son the)
held and loved for t\o brief hours before he'died.
"\Very early in the pregnancy. before there was e\en a hint of
problems. I had turned in the Bible to Joshua 1:9. I didn't realize
then that it would become the cornerstone of my pregnancy\ and
inspire our son's name." Pamela shared.
The \erse reads. "Have I not commanded \ou? Be strong and
courageous. Do not be temfied: do not be discouraged, for the
Lord .our God will be with you \wherever you go." INI V
There was nothing simple about the pregnancy discovering
along the \~ay that their child had a condition that was incompati-
ble with life. The birth itself \would be premature and breech. But,
when he was born, she heard him sigh as he took his first breath.
Their "linle soldier" valiantly had survived.
Not knowing if she would deliver him alive, it made her own
heart flutter \ ith excitement and she knew she had done the
right thing in giving him life, no matter how brief it would be.
Tnsomy 13. a birth defect of the chromosomes, left Joshua
with a severe cleft palette and lip, intestines that developed out-
side his body, and a heart that was too small to pump blood
throughout his body But. Keith and Pam looked into the bluest
eyes and brushed their lips and face against the downy softness
of his blonde hair. This child knew he w\as loved.
Gently rocking him, Pamela sang him an Irish lullaby while
she held his uny body wrapped snugly in a soft blanket. She
kissed him and told him she loved him. And then, she repeated
Psalm 23, 'The Lord is My Shepherd."
"We held him, sang to him and as he took his last breath. we
were there for him and all he knew as love," Pamela said, tears
streaming down her face.
'" held him like that for hours until the nurse convinced Keith
to take him from my arms and put him in a little bassinet. Then,
not too long after, she brought him back to me dressed in a white
hat and gown prepared for burial and told me to hold him one
last time for a linle while; and, she stayed with me."

A heart for life
Pamela is the parish nurse coordinator for Florida Hospital,
Heartland. She trains la. people to care for the whole person -
body, mind and spirit.
"This position is the heart of who I am. It enables me to put
together my medical experience with my spirituality," she said.
But she has another passion, as well.
As a board member of the Orange Blossom Pregnancy Center
in Avon Park, she shares her story to help the community under-
stand the preciousness of life.
"We need to be good stewards of what God has given us,
because no one is a mistake."
The doctors continually tried to convince Pamela to abort, but
she would still have to deliver the child. To accomplish this, they
would have inserted a needle through her \womb.
"They would pierce Joshua's heart with potassium and kill him
and then induce labor so I could give birth instead of letting the
natural order of things take place. Meanwhile, as they suggested
this, he was moving inside me."

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
ost times, pregnancy is
happy news. But, there are
times when that news isn't
as welcome because it's
an unplanned, crisis pregnancy. That's where
Orange Blossom Pregnancy Care Centers comes
in and provides a haven of hope.
Carolyn Trucano, director of Orange Blossom
Pregnancy Care Centers, came to Avon Park in
November 2004.-Previously, she had served five
years with Life Choice Care Center in Inverness.
"We are here for birth-moms before, during
and after birth; as well as after adoption or even
abortion," Trucano said. "We offer free and con-
fidential support and assistance in the months
encompassing crisis pregnancies."
Located at 1200 West Avon Blvd., Suite 202,
in the Larson Medical Center (adjacent to the old
Walker Memorial Hospital on U.S. 27), Orange
Blossom is the result of a vision to assist young
women who are confused and wondering what to
do next. They are there to say, "You don't have
face this time alone."

Vision and promise
Dr. Ron Holley, former director for Missions
of the Orange Blossom Baptist Association saw
his vision for a pregnancy center fulfilled in April
2003. With some funds from Orange Blossom
Baptist Association, he, several area pastors and
lay people set out to provide a haven of hope for
young women in crisis pregnancies.
Mary Beth Ford was the initial director who
"did a mountain of things to get the ministry up
and going," Trucano said.
When she resigned, there was an interim direc-
tor for five months. Trucano took her place and
continues the work with women and f:mnilie- In
July 2004, a'satellite center opened in Wauchula
at 421 South 10th Ave., just north of Southside
Baptist Church.
"Then two weeks later, Hurricane Charley
blew through and collapsed our roof. We hardly
had a chance to get the word out," Trucano said.
Now the facility is renovated and may possibly
reopen in June.
"Unfortunately, Hardee County is number one
in the state for teen pregnancies. It's important
that we get that center operational."

Services offered
Orange Blossom Pregnancy Care Centers
extends loving, compassionate and practical help
in the form of pregnancy tests; maternity and
baby items; video tapes explaining the stages of
pregnancy, how the baby is developing and how
to have a healthy pregnancy; and, counseling.
If a young woman is not sure what she wants
to do, she's given literature to take home.
"Most of our clients opt to carry their babies to
full-term and become single parents," Trucano
said. "We are looking forward to expanding our
services to include child development and parent-
ing skills for those who keep their babies."
On the other hand, a few place them in adop-
tive homes. Orange Blossom puts them in touch
with adoption agencies to help make an adoption
plan.
"To be a birth mom, consider the options early
and then choose an adoption plan requires a spe-
cial selflessness a degree of emotional and even
spiritual maturity," Trucano said. "The birth-
mom's decision is not without pain since a bond-
~ -~ _...._____


ing has taken place in the nine.months, even if
she never holds her baby."
Whether needing emotional support to be a
single mom, or grieving the loss of the child she
places for adoption, emotions take a little longer
catching up to the knowledge that one has made
the right choice. In every stage, Orange Blossom
offers that additional support.
"For those who choose abortion, we extend the
opportunity to come back later for post-abortion
counseling, even if many years have gone by."
Other services include:
Abstinence education Trucano has been
invited to Sebring High School's Life
Management Classes.
Intervention Programs that promote the
sanctity of human life.
Forgiveness Through post-abortion sup-
port groups and counseling; one-on-one counsel-
ing over a period of time to help with unresolved
issues; such as, anger and low self-esteem.
Reconciliation Family relationships,
including parenting. If the birth-mom and dad
decide to marry, sound counseling and training is
given for realistic expectations followed by refer-
ral to a local pastor for pre-marital counseling.

Volunteers needed
The next available training program for volun-
teer counselors will be led by Kathleen Hiers,
director of Sanctity of Human Life from the
Florida Baptist Children's Home. It will be a 16-
hour course taking place from 5:30-9 p.m.
Thursday and Friday, June 2 and 3; and from 8:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 4. The training
for volunteers will be held at First Baptist
Church, Avon Park. A light supper will be pro-
vided each night, as well as a continental break-
fast and a light lunch Saturday. For details call
Trucano at the Care Center, 453-0307.
.-Potential .volunteers for both, the Avon Park
and the Wauchula centers should contact the avon
Park center, immediately to complete a volunteer
application and reserve training materials by 5
p.m. Wednesday, May 11. There is a $15 fee for
training materials.
"We recommend all volunteers go through the
training, even if they won't be doing one-on-one
counseling. It helps them understand what goes
on and gives them a better overview of the pro-
gram," Trucano said.
Volunteers are also needed for clerical, tele-
phoning, accounting and taking care of the baby
room donations so they are kept organized and
clean.

Authors find ways to

pay tribute to 'Mom'


of Oz


Editors and
authors struggle to
find titles for their
stories that will catch
someone's interest,
elicit a memory and
cause a person to buy
that book or see that
movie.
Catherine
Cookson succeeded
with her book "The
Invisible Cord." It
made me think of my
mother and all the

Hesselink


memories that lovingly tie up
my heart and life with hers.
There are many great titles
about the trials and triumphs of
having children and raising
them, so let me recommend
some that may strike a chord
with you.
One is "Her Own Rules" by
Barbara Taylor Bradford.
Janette Oke's "A Prairie
Legacy" series includes "A
Quiet Strength," "Searching
Heart," "The Tender Years" and
"Like Gold Refined." Melody
H. Stevenson has written about
pioneer and Indian women in
"The Life Stone of Singing
Bird." More historical fiction
comes from Joan Aiken in
"Lady Catherine's Necklace."
Amy Tan writes about the
relationship between Chinese-
American mothers and daugh-
ters in books such as "The Joy
Luck Club" and "The Kitchen
God's Wife."
Other recommended titles
are "The Keepsake" by Kirsty
Gunn, "The Jewels of Tessa
Kent" by Judith Krantz;
"Inventing Memory" by Erica
Jong; "Floating in My Mother's
Palm" by Ursula Hegi;
"Beaming Sonny Home" by
Cathie Pelletier; "The Bay of
Angels" by Anita Brooker;.
"The Curing Season" by Leslie
Wells; "The Estuary" by
Georgia Savage; and "Fault
Lines by Anne Rivers Siddons.
You'll learn a lot about the
ups and downs of family rela-
tionships in our fiction section,
but why confine yourself to that
area? Get a chilling look at the
other side of motherhood when
you read Ann Rule's non-fic-
tion "Bitter Harvest: A

Mother's Murder" by
the Peter Maas.
After all that
you'll definitely need
a pick-me-upper, so
browse through
"Chicken Soup for
the Mother's Soul"
or "Are We Having
Fun Yet?: The 16
Secrets of Happy
Parenting." Maybe
you or someone you
love needs to read
"The Electric


Woman: Hope for
Tired Mothers, Lovers, and
Others." Families with pre-
teens or teens can greatly bene-
fit from these titles:
"Everything You Need to Know
About Teen Motherhood";
"Keep Talking: A Mother-
Daughter Guide to the Preteen
Years," "Trust Me, Mom -
Everyone Else is Going!: The
New Rules for Mother
Adolescent Girls," "Cool
Communication," "Between
Mother & Daughter: A
Teenager and Her Mom Share
the Secrets of a Strong
Relationship."
I like the juvenile book "Ask
Me What My Mother Does,"
which describes the jobs of 17
working mothers.
For all of our moms,
Nicholas Gordon's poem
"Before I Was Myself, You
Made Me, Me" just seems so
right:
"Before I was myself you
made me, me, with love and
patience, discipline and tears,
then bit by bit stepped back to
set me free.
"And being good and wise,
you gracefully as dancers when
the last sweet cadence nears, bit
by bit stepped back to set me
free.
"For love inspires learning
naturally: the mind assents to
what the heart reveres.
"And so it was through love
you made me, me by slowly.
stepping back to set me free,"
Carolyn Hesselink i the ddmin-
istrative secretary of the
Highlands County Library
System. Library cards are
always free. For information,

Actress meets with Pakistani prime minister


Associated Press
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -
Angelina Jolie met Pakistan's
prime minister in Islamabad to
thank him for hosting Afghan
refugees.
Her visit with Prime Minister
Shaukat Aziz on Wednesday
came two days after a census
showed that more than 3 million
Afghans were living in Pakistan.
Millions of Afghans have fled to
Pakistan to escape wars and


poverty since 1979, when Soviet
troops invaded Afghanistan.
Jolie, who is a U.N. goodwill
ambassador, will ineet Afghan
refugees during her three-dy
stay, officials said.
She accepted an invitation
from Aziz to be the keynote
speaker at a donors conference
to raise funds for Afghah
refugees that will be hosted by
Pakistan later this year.

Mistletoe is an interesting plant


Parasitic Christmas
plant wraps its
roots around
unsuspecting hosts
M Part one in a series
Mistletoe is a parasite that
grows on the branches or trunk
of a tree and sends out roots,
which penetrate the host and
absorb the nutrients.
Mistletoe is capable of grow-
ing independently since, like
other plants, it is able to pro-
duce food by means if photo-
synthesis. Nevertheless, it is
usually found growing as a par-
asitic plant.
Mistletoe is identified by its
green stems with thick leaves
that are nearly oval in shape.
Plants often develop a roundish
form up to 2 feet or more in
diameter. The small, sticky,
whitish berries are produced
from October to December.
Evergreen clumps of mistletoe
are readily observed on decidu-
ous trees in winter when leaves
are off the trees.
The common name of mistle-
toe is derived from the old
belief that the plant was propa-
gated from bird droppings. The
birds feed on and digest the
pulp of the berries, excreting
the living seeds that stick tight-
ly to any branch on which they
land.
In most cases, the initial
infestation occurs on larger or
older trees because birds prefer


to perch in the tops of taller
trees. A heavy buildup of
mistletoe often occurs within an
infested tree because birds are
attracted to the berries and may
spend a good deal of time feed-
ing on them.
In addition, seeds may fall
from mistletoe plants in the
upper parts of the tree, creating
new infestations on the lower
branches.
After the mistletoe seed ger-
minates, it grows through the
bark and into the tree's water-
conducting tissues, where root-
like structures called haustoria
develop. The haustoria gradual-
ly extend up and down within
the branch as the mistletoe
grows.
Initially, the parasitic plant
grows slowly; it may take years
before the plant blooms and
produces seed. Broadleaf
mistletoes have succulent stems
that become woody at the base.
Old, mature mistletoe plants
may be several feet in diameter,
and on some host species, large
swollen areas develop on the
infected branches where the
mistletoe penetrates. If the visi-
ble portion of the mistletoe is
removed, new plants often
resprout from the haustoria.
.Damage is caused to the
broad leaf mistletoe by absorb-
ing both water and mineral
nutrients from its host tree.
Healthy trees can tolerate a few
mistletoe branch infections, but
individual branches may be


weakened or some-
times killed, especial-
ly if they are stressed
by other problems
such as drought or
disease.
The ideal method
of controlling or pre-
venting mistletoe is to
plant trees believed to
be resistant or moder-
ately resistant to
mistletoe. Where
many new trees are
being planted, control
mistletoe in any sur-
rounding infected
trees to reduce the
infection of new
trees.
For treatment of.

existing


trees it is important to remove
mistletoe before it produces
seed and .spread to other limbs
or trees. Mechanical control
through pruning is the most
effective method for removal..
Mistletoe berries are very
poisonous so make sure young
children or pets do not eat the
berries if you pse the plant as


decoration. Birds
seem to eat the
berries without any
ill effect.
Next week I will
continue discussing
controlling mistletoe
as well as some
myths about this
plant.

SEED
Continued from 1C
And if she had succumbed to
their insistence, their baby
would have known incredible
pain and cruelty from those
who were supposed' to protect
him. Joshua had been entrusted
to the care of his parents and
they took that trust seriously.
He would have missed out on
the safety of her womb; the
love and acceptance of his par-
ents; and the experience of
- being held, sung to and prayed
over hearing God's Word as
he slipped from this life to the
next,, in God's time.
She quoted to him, "When I
was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes
saw my unformed body. All the
days ordained for me were writ-
ten in your book before one of
them came to be." (Psalm
139:16, NIV)
And, incredibly, his life's
purpose would have been abort-
ed in the process.
The Schlarfs don't pretend to
understand all of God's ways.
But, they believe God gave
them a chance to really know
themselves and choose life -


even when their minds could
not wrap around the enormity
of the painful, confusing situa-
tion.
God used Pamela's pregnan-
cy and Joshua's brief life to
open Keith's heart to a saving
knowledge of God in Christ.
Joshua fulfilled his purpose
because his parents chose life.
They know he is perfectly
whole in God's presence and
that they will see him again
some day.
While Pamela was in labor, a'
dear friend came and placed a
bracelet in her hand which she
treasures to this day. The
bracelet has a charm that
encloses a mustard seed.
"That mustard seed reminds
me of the hope that is present in
even the gloomiest of circum-
stances. A hope that no matter
how tiny when given to God -
will grow and produce fruit."
For the Schlarfs, the pain
they endured and have poured
out for the benefit of others is
that fruit if it brings hope and
purpose to even one person.
"God brought us to our knees
to bring us up again," Pamela
said.
