It's been nearly two years since Sue Feathers was murdered on May 21, 2003. Members of her family, including
daughter-in-law Missy, (from left) son David, husband Mel, son Dan and daughter-in-law Ginny, gathered Tuesday
in front of the Lake Placid location of Feathers' Dry Cleaning where the murder occurred. A news conference was
held,at the Highlands County Sheriff's Office earlier in the day and Sheriff Susan Benton pledged to continue the
investigation into Feathers' murder.

will be two years since Sue
Feathers of Sebring was murdered.

gaiurs are still lookirig for the
Her family and friends have

Cool issues hurricane warning

Administrator Carl Cool stopped
short. of telling county commis-
sioners that hurricanes will be as
bad this'year as last year.
However, with just two weeks to
go before the June 1 start of hurri-
cane season, he did say the weather
patterns are the same, and look to
stay that way.
After attending the governor's
hurricane conference in Tampa last
week, he learned that the Atlantic
Ocean temperature is the same now

as it was last year. Also, the high
pressure zone that makes hurri-
canes head west instead of north is
still there.
However, Florida is not the
same. The conference was attended
heavily by all 67' Florida counties,
most southeastern states and a cou-
ple of foreign countries. From
them, Cool learned how counties to
the southeast of Highlands County
are in poorer shape than they were
at this same time last year.
St. Lucie County still has.14,000
people in "FEMA villages" tem-
porary trailers while Charlotte

County still has thousands of blue
roofs and had to evacuate its emer-
gency operations center three times
during the storm, Cool said, once to
a sheriff's office hallway.
Highlands County still has
homes that will not be rebuilt in
time for this hurricane season.
Between coastal influx and local
needs, Cool said the county should
brace for additional shelter needs.
"We will enter this season better
prepared," he said.
Gasoline will present a problem
again, he said. With only four ports

SEBRING The state of
Florida is facing a critical
shortage of teachers.
Education Commissioner
John Winn has said it is a cri-
sis never seen before in
Florida education, and that
the state will need up to
30,000 new teachers by the
school year 2006-07.
Teachers of math and sci-
ence, particularly at the
advanced secondary level, are
in shortest supply, although
Vivianne Waldron, director of
human resources for the
Highlands County School
District, warns that teachers

of exceptional students are
also very hard to find.
"We're anticipating that
critical teacher shortage to
worsen in the coming years
due to the fact that our state is
turning out less than 30 per-
cent of the teachers needed in
the state," she said, "and we
anticipate more (teacher)
retirement and more students
coming in.
"So, while Highlands
County is not as desperate as
some of the much, much larg-
er districts, we do feel the
crunch. This is why we are
looking at alternative routes
to classroom teaching."

'Watchful eye'

best defense

to use against

sexual crime
SEBRING The best thing to know about sexu-
al predators and offenders is everything you can, law
enforcement officials said Tuesday.
'On Tuesday night, Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton hosted "Creating a Watchful Eye," a
seminar to inform parents, daycare providers, teach-'
ers and concerned citizens how sexual crimes are a
serious issue, to be dealt with in a proactive and pos-
itive way.
- Alan Moses, government analyst with the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, said Florida is
proactive on the sexual offender issue, with stringent
requirements on convicted offenders. The Public
Safety Information Act, passed on Oct. 1, 1993,
required records to be kept on sexual offenders.
Later, Megan's Law required-public notification of
sexual predators or offenders living in an area.
Detective Tom Ouverson with the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Crime Scene Investigations
unit, along with other deputies, knocks on doors
daily to inform residents of a nearby sexual offend-
er, or visits those on the offender list once or twice a
month to make sure their addresses are current.

Bear dies after

hit by vehicle

LAKE PLACID While agents of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission contin-
ue to look for the person that shot and killed a
Florida black bear, another of the species has died as
the result of an apparent traffic accident.
"It was struck along State Road 70 near the Bear's
*Den south of Lake Placid," FWC Agent Erica
Zimmermah said.
The bear, which weighed in at about 340 pounds
was taken to the Royce Ranch station for examina-
tion, but had to be euthanized.
"He was in pretty bad shape; it looked like he was
hit from behind. It probably broke both of his legs,"
she said. "He was dragging himself; he couldn't get
Zimmerman said the extent of the injuries, cou-
pled with the fact that the Florida Highway Patrol
had received no crash reports from overnight, led
her to believe the bear had been hit by a big truck.
"If it had been a regular car, it would have been
totaled it would have done some damage,"
Zimmerman said. "But to a semi, it could have hit
that bear and just kept right on going." -
The bear's age was not immediately determined,
however, Zimmerman said preliminary evidence

Pickard suspected the air
conditioning unit in the bed-
room started it.
Fire Investigator Fred Clarke
with the Bureau of Fire and
Arson Investigations, Division
of the State Fire Marshal,
blamed the outlet in the bed-
room where the air conditioner
was connected. Though acci-
dental, the fire was typical of
30- to 40-year-old vintage
camper trailers with wood
frame additions, renovated to
permanent residences, he said.
Often, people have not upgrad-

he passed on. She visited

of winters and decided to make
it permanent.

Jasmine Jones

returns home

SEBRING After a week-
long absence, Jasmine Jones is
home. Now, both relatives and
law enforcement officials are
attempting to determine why
the Sebring teenager left and.
exactly where she has been.
According to Sebring Police
Juvenile Officer Larry
Carmody, Jones showed up at
the Avon Park Police
Department early Tuesday
morning, claiming she had been
in the City of. Charm since her
disappearance May 8.
Avon Park officers subse-
quently took the teenager to the
Sebring Police Department and
turned her over to authorities
here. Carmody said that Jones
was not forthcoming with infor-'
mation about the situation in a
primary interview.
"She told me she had been
staying with a friend in Avon
Park the entire time," Carmody
said. "She said another eighth-
grader had threatened her and
her family."
However, Carmody said get-
ting details has been a chal-
Jones reportedly told
Carmody she thought it had
been a cousin of her friend that
had delivered her to the Avon
Park police on Tuesday morn-
The student's grandmother,
Janet Jones, said somebody had
called her Tuesday morning
asking if she wanted somebody
to bring her granddaughter
"I said 'yes,' but they asked
me if I could meet them half,
way which I couldn't because
my car is broke down," she
said, "So I just told them to take
her to the police station."
Jones said when she awoke
later that morning her grand-
daughter was home. However,
she didn't have a chance to
speak to her.,
'"She just put on her clothes
-and went to-school," she said.
At this point, there do not
appear to be any charges that
might be preferred in connec-
tion with the incident.
Noting recent high profile
cases of child abduction,
assault and death, Carmody
told the Hill-Gustat Middle

School student she had been
"I told her 'You're lucky you
didn't end up dead and in a
ditch. I have stacks of papers
about missing children on my
desk,' he said.
Carmody still had-a number
of interviews to do with princi-
pals in the case before it could
be put to rest.
The 14-year-old Jones had
been missing since Mother's
Her grandmother reported
the teen had asked if she could
go to a "block party" with a
friend. A young man picked her
up from her Lakeview Drive
residence and she had not heard
from her since.
Later, Jones' grandmother
said she contacted the boy her
granddaughter had said was
taking her to the event but he
told the grandmother he hadn't
gone and in fact knew nothing
about the party.
Jones said she had doubts
that any such party took place.
In fact, this is not the first
time the 14-year-old has been
gone for more than a day. Jones
said one time she had been out
for the entire weekend.
"She's always been back by
Sunday to go to school the next
day," she'd said.
Carmody attempted to reach
her via her cellular telephone
without success.
Officials of the Florida
Department of Children and
Families said that even though
the 14-year-old disappeared
without communication the
DCF would not necessarily
become involved in the case.
"If the child is in the DCF
system then we have a tracking
system to try and help find
them," said Taz Woodard from
-the DCF office in Tallahassee.
"But if it's just a child that is
living with the grandmother
and she runs periodically, even
if.law enforcement is involved,
it does not necessarily mean
that DCF enforcement gets
Woodard explained that her

different community wants and
needs," she said.
The program has been pretty
successful, Hayes said, adding
new ones each year. The crime
prevention unit will try to touch
base with various organizations
they haven't contacted recently,
she said.

One way they do that is with
a newsletter. Hayes said it pub-
lishes monthly during the regu-
lar season and twice during the
summer. The last newsletter
talked about managing a neigh-
borhood watch with fewer peo-'
ple, hurricane preparation and
general pool safety.
It also talked about crime
prevention tips for leaving
home during the summer. Some
tips include having a neighbor
park his or her car in your
driveway or setting their
garbage on the curb in front of
your house while you are gone.

Highlands County's Veterans
Services Office recently
helped a disabled veteran get
back home.
Zoltan "Jerry" Breuer, a 59-
year-old who uses a wheel-
chair, arrived on an Amtrak
train on May 3. He said he had
misplaced or been robbed of
$900 in traveling money, and
he couldn't find the man who
had supposedly invited him to
Florida for a visit.
When he contacted the
Sebring Police Department
and asked for help, dispatch-
ers called the Veterans
Services Office and spoke
with administrative assistant
Trish Freeland and volunteer
coordinator Harold Linville.
Linville took Breuer to
Amscot to get the $20 his
family had wired him, but his
car couldn't carry the wheel-
Linville said he offered to
leave it at the police station,
take Breuer home to stay with
him, and then return the next
morning. Breuer wouldn't
leave without it and chose to

The next day, they got in
contact with The Salvation
Army and found Breuer a
room at Magnolia Village.
Breuer stayed there while try-
ing to,locate his friend with
no luck.
"We checked on him every
day," Freeland said. "He
wanted to do the best with
what he had."
Unable to find the friend,
Breuer decided to go home.

AVON PARK City coun-
cil members in the City of
Charm have given disaster offi-
cials another 45 days to deal
with travel trailers provided to
people in Avon Park whose
homes were severely damaged
by the trio of hurricanes that
roared through Highlands
County last August and
At the height of the relief
effort as many as 30 such trail-
ers were set at various locations
inside the city limits. Some
were in lots, others were on pri-
vate property.
It is those trailers in residen-
tial areas that caused council
members the most consterna-
tion. There has been concern
the trailers might become a per-
manent part of the landscape.
State Housing Coordinator
for the Division of Emergency
Management Pamela Keil
talked to council members
about the situation at their May
9 meeting. While she was able
to elicit a time extension that
would permit the trailers anoth-
er 45 days on the ground, Keil
emphasized she already has
been working to relocate the
"What's going to happen is if
the people are waiting to get
back into a rental property and
the landlord has not fixed it,
we're going to recommend that
those trailers be moved outside
the city limits," she said.
However, exactly where that
might be still has not yet been
Determined. Keil's plans are to
meet with Federal Emergency
Management Agency represen-
tatives to go through their
options before making a deci-
"It could be a commercial
site that has travel trailers there;
it could be that we move them
to another city or another area,"
she said.
Staying in touch with the

people in the disaster relief pro-
grams is part of what Keil
referred to as an "ongoing
process." She said FEMA has a
re-certification team that has
contacted the residents on a
month to month basis.
"For instance, if somebody
says they are waiting for roof-
ing supplies and they're not
going to be here for 60 days, the
team members will go talk to

the roofing company or the con-
tractor that is doing the work
and get an estimation, then re-
certify the residents for the
appropriate amount of .time,"
she said.
Admitting there had been
"some problems" with the pro-
gram, Keil said that like other
emergency responders her
agency had learned some valu-
able lessons.

first year ACT was enacted, and
17 the next. This year 23 teach-

Janet Harris, who teaches at
Fred Wild Elementary School,
was in the first ACT class. This'
year she was chosen the
school's Teacher of the. Year.
"Janet is our poster child for the
ACT program," Waldron said

150 more this year.
"We're making an all out
effort to attend as many recruit-

Avoid investment disasters

When a consumer complains
about an investment one of the first
questions an investigator asks is,
"Did you receive a prospectus?"
The second question is, "Did you
read it?"
Unfortunately the answer to .
question one is yes and the answer
to number two is usually no. Many
investors simply rely on verbal
promises made by the securities CONI
seller. The fact is, a prospectus
should be filled with information to OUT
help you evaluate the investment. A
flimsy prospectus is a red flag. M
Over the years I have seen many MAT1
securities fraud investigations jeop-
ardized because the information in the
prospectus is different from what the investor
says he was told. Here's an example. You
invest in an unsecured promissory note paying
10 percent. The securities seller, typically
unlicensed to sell securities, says the invest-
ment is safe and guaranteed.
However, if you took the time to read the
prospectus you would see it contained a sig-
nificant disclaimer that said something like,
"this is a high risk investment with no guaran-
tee that the business venture will succeed or
that interest payments will continue ... etc.,
etc., etc." Huh? What happened to safe and
Here's another point. Most offering
brochures tell you about the business back-
grounds of organizers and key personnel. This
section should reveal positive and negative
facts. For example, wouldn't you want to
know if the president of the company has a
criminal history? Experience in the type of
business being proposed? Or, what if the
organizers were previously involved with
business ventures that failed?
If you don't read anything negative in the
prospectus, you should ask the tough ques-
tions. Better yet, do independent research.
Here are a few tips on what to look for when
reading a prospectus.
First, is the investment speculative? If yes,
does the investment meet your personal
investment objectives? You may be willing to
accept more risk for a higher than normal rate

-: a.

of return. Carefully read the risks
section. If no risks are identified,
this is a red flag.
Is the investment listed on a rec-
S ognized stock exchange? Is it regis-
tered with the Securities and
Exchange Commission or state reg-
I ulators? Stock exchange listing
4 rules are demanding. While being
-... ; listed on an exchange is no guaran-
SUMER tee for success, at least you know
the company completed the very
REACH demanding red tape required by the
securities registration process.
ARK Here's a tough one for most peo-
IOSIAN pie. Are the shares offered at a fair
price and does the financial data
make sense? You may need to get help from a
financial expert if you can't figure this one
Do you understand the industry and does
the business plan make sense? If you don't
understand "how" the company will earn
money, then maybe you should reconsider
your decision to invest. Remember Charles
Ponzi and his investment scheme. Ponzi paid
outrageously high returns so no one would
investigate the veracity of his business plan,
buying and selling international postal reply
coupons. After his scheme collapsed Ponzi
boasted that investors were blinded by the
high rates of return he promised (50 percent in
45 days, 100 percent in 90 days). His business
plan made no sense, but nobody took the time
to evaluate it.
In closing, there are no guarantees that even
if you read and understand an investment
prospectus you will make money or that the
business will succeed. There are no risk free
investments, only investments with varying
degrees of risk. Do your homework and invest
cautiously. That way you will diminish your
chances of losing money or getting ripped off.

Don't leave home without

a house watching service

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Peace of
mind is priceless.
During last year's hurricanes,
worried seasonal parishioners
called First Baptist Church of
Avon Park, asking if there was
someone available who could
check their homes. After the
pastor mentioned the need sev-
eral times Jeril and Janice
Clenney decided it would be a
good retirement business for
them. So, they started The
Neighbor's House Watching
"We've lived here forever.
My husband graduated from

Avon Park High School in
1951, and we were citrus and
cattle farmers' for 48 years,"
Janice Clenney said. "After I
got my county and state license
and bonding, I went to the
chamber of commerce and sher-
iff's department who said they
were glad to have this kind of
business available. They felt it
was really needed."
Prices vary depending on
requirements whether you're
merely on a week's vacation, or
a part-time resident here ... and
the number of visits needed.
"Our service is very person-
alized. We can simply walk the
yard, checking for vandalism or

wind damage, making sure
everything is secure, or that the
lawn has been mowed. If we
have a key we can check inside
to be sure the freezer didn't stay
off after an electrical storm, or
check for leaky faucets, etc. We
don't do repairs. We call and
advise the client of anything
special to be taken care of,"
Janice Clenney said.
"It's just my husband and
myself, and the business is
restricted to Highlands County.
We have a sign on our car, so
neighbors know who we are,"
she said.

Week recognizes medical transcribers

SEBRING This week is rec-
ognized as National Medical
Transcription Week.
Tony Quails with
Transcriptions Solutions of
Sebring said the field of medical
transcription- is a little-under-
stood industry. He describes it as
communication between the
physician and the medical team.
All physicians give dictation, a
legal documentation of a
patient's medical visit. That infor-
mation is then transcribed into
written form so that other mem-
bers of the health care team can
read and understand it.
Quails said a medical tran-
scriber is more than a good typ-
ist. He or she must also need to
have .a good understanding of
medical terminology. They need
to understand what parts of the
body are being referred to
Because of the need to get the
most viable information into the
hands that need it.

Qualls explained the tran-
scriber also helps with the finan-
cial end of medical care because
doctors can't send out accurate
bills unless the care is detailed.
Transcriptions Solutions of
Sebring opened in 1998, and now
has 30 transcriptionists working

in Highlands County. The busi-
ness' clients include a hospital in
Illinois, and physicians in
Tennessee and across the state
of Florida.
For information on medical
transcriptionists visit www. aamt.

Good results come in

Highlands County school officials anxiously await
more results of the 2005 Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, but say they are pleased with what
they've seen thus far coming from the county's third-
graders, and rightfully so.
Of the county's eight elementary schools, the county
appears to be split down the middle: Four scored above
the state average in math results and four scored below.
Hopewell, a charter school, also scored below the state
Educators say it will take time to understand the pat-
terns and draw conclusions from the results. One of the
problems is that much of the results from the higher
grades had not come back in yet.
John Rousch, who teaches industrial technology at
Lake Placid High School and has just taken office as
president of the Highlands County Education
Association, was optimistic, saying "the returns on the
elementary schools show we're on the right track. The
test scores are improving."
And those scores improved in spite of a school year
marked by the disruptions of last year's hurricane season,
proving that our school children are as resilient as we had
According to the state Department of Education's Web
site, the FCAT is administered to students in grades 3
through 11, and contains two basic components:
Critereon-referenced tests (CRT), which measure select-
ed bench marks in mathematics, reading, science and
writing in the Sunshine State Standards; and norm-refer-
enced tests (NRT) in reading and mathematics, which
measure student performance against national norms.
The FCAT is primarily a longitudinal measuring
device, designed to track students from grade to grade,
the data helping to determine a student's course of
instruction depending on how he or she progresses or
While it is arguably the most important test a Florida
student will take, it is only one of many all of which
are meant to be seen in combination, so a complete and
detailed understanding of each student can be attained.
The FCAT, therefore, is not normally used as a snap-
shot except at those specific times, like the third grade,
when a single score, determines if a student passes on or
repeats a grade.
Students who.score in-CAT Achievement Levels 3, 4
- and 5 in reading or mathematics, are considered on grade
level, proficient or advanced. Students who score 3 and
above on FCAT writing have scored at or above a mini-
mally acceptable level.
Sixty-seven percent of Highlands Coonty third-graders
scored a 3 or better on the reading test, 66 percent scored
a 3 or better on the math test, and 81 percent- of
Highlands County fourth-graders scored a 3 or better on
the writing test.
Highlands County produced two perfect FCAT Writing
plus scores at the elementary level, both by students at
Sun 'N Lake Elementary School. Sun''N Lake also pro-
duced an average score of 334, 17 points higher than the
state average of 317.
What does this say for our elementary school children?
Not only are they trying hard to make better scores, but
they are learning more.
Other scores are yet to come in. Only those deciding
grade levels, third and 10th grades, have learned their
results. Other test scores will be forthcoming due to a
delay resulting from last year's hurricanes.
But, if the lowest grade level is any indication,
Highlands County should be right on track with most of
its schools and the scores coming from the students.
Kudos are due the teachers who had a tougher than
usual year to teach, and more importantly to the students-
who didn't let three storms stand in their way of learning.

Without God,

all is left behind

First I'd like to express my
thanks to all the true conserva-
tive people who voted no to the
sales tax scamp. It's good to
know there are still fine
Americans out there who know
that building more school
buildings isn't the problem.
Our educational system in this
nation is totally destroyed.
When God, Bible reading
and prayer was removed from
our classroom by the govern-
ment, it has been a downhill
run ever since.
All common sense along
with moral instruction are a
thing of the past. It is impossi-
ble to do anything right without
the acknowledgment of God's
The school system is filled
with godless teachers pushing
humanism, atheism and on and
on. Much of the curriculum is
useless and without purpose!
Without God there isn't any
constructive discipline. The
sincere, honest teacher can't
even perform their work like
they want to. .
As it is with politics, our
government is a failure. And
unless the good American peo-
ple stand up and take this
nation back then look for total
You have a president and
even our governor saying "No
child left behind." I say without
God, all is left behind. In fact,
without Him all life is vanity.

Gillis speaks

little of the facts
Youi guest columnist, Dale
Gillis, in May 8 issue of the
Sunday newspaper, egregiously
discredits himself as a factual
columnist. His opening lead
statement states Quote, "Now
that the media has made the
Roman Catholic Church the
official religion of the United
States -, etc., etc."
How in the world does he
come to that totally biased con-
,clusion? His sweeping general-
izations suggesting that it isn't
possible to name a hundred
sects combined that get the
press coverage the Roman
Catholic Church receives,
omits reason and rationale.
Mr. Gillis, by omission of his
nearly 30-year record, has the
audacity to challenge with
impunity the Saintly record of
our exceptionally gifted Pope
John Paul II, our future "Saint
and Pope the Great." For
starters, no other religion (all
combined) or secular world
leaders over the past 100 years
have achieved, accomplished
and touched the hearts, minds
and souls of our world popula-
The world media, Mr. Gillis,
had no choice but to provide

24/7 coverage to our world
class incomparable Pope John
Paul II, the Vicar of Jesus
Christ here. on earth. I suggest
that you and all who may sub-
scribe to your persuasion read
the Feb. 11 issue of the Time
magazine, hardly a religious
mouthpiece, to learn from
whence the present Pope
Benedict XVI and all of his
predecessors since Jesus Christ
named St. Peter the first earthly
heard of "the Church" in AD
Mr. Gillis' opinions, to we
Catholics, negative anti Papal
Roman Catholic rhetoric is
couched in personal bias, not
supported by facts, such as,
"The press always refers--,"
"this is a man of learning?,"
"has a rather negative attitude,"
"he leans closer to pacifism
than any other Pope," "in
Benedict we can expect another
American bashing pacifist
Mr. Gillis' column piece is
replete with negative innuendo,
phrases and words that border
on hate journalism. His essay is
totally void of a single one of
thousands of Pope John Paul's
world class achievements. He
.didn' offer whyworld leaders
from every nation on earth and
religious persuasion and the
billions who witness via the
secular media and our world
class E T N 24/7 Catholic net-
work founded by Mother
Angelica, chose to attend
and/or witness Pope John Paul
II's funeral.
History, I predict, without
reservation, that Mr. Gillis'
essay mantra will pass on into
oblivion and that which he
chooses to slander will be ever

Each year around this time,
students hear what is common-
ly referred to as a graduation
It can range anywhere from a
pre-school graduation, to a high
school graduation, or even a
college-level ceremony. Yet,
the one thing they all have in
common is this: They are inspi-
Well, my dear friends, this is
dedicated to anyone who has
ever graduated or plans on
graduating. This "graduating
status" can be from school, pur-
suing a better life, or dedicating
your life to something positive.
Believe it or not, Disney
movies can provide much
inspiration in the characters
that are used to entertain our
young. Through Walt Disney's
characters, I believe that he
shed some light upon what peo-
ple should aspire to be.
As many young people pre-
pare to make the transition
from their comfort zone of
home to a new location, I
believe it is important to keep
in mind some important words
from a much loved character,
Winnie the Pooh. He said, "If
there ever comes a day when
we can't be together, keep me
in your heart. I'll stay there for-
Although you might be leav-
ing your friends, family and
hometown, the memories that
you have made will never leave
you. Hold ihe values and
beliefs that have been instilled
.in~-,;you, dear, because the real
-werd can-be rough.
;A' jingle from mThe-fungle
Book" has captivated audi-
ences for years now. Though
most do not know all of the
words to "The Bear Necess-
ities," the meaning behind the
music is the focus point.
The simple, "bear" necessi-
ties are all that we need in our
lives when you think about it.
Our lives, our family (or those
close to you), and your belief in
the Man Above is what should
be on your priority list. When
those things are met, it is easy
to distinguish between wants
and true needs.
I am quite positive that you
have heard "If you can not say
anything nice, do not.say any-
thing at all" spill at one time or
another in your life. Well, guess
where it came from? If you said
Bambi's mom in the classic
movie "Bambi," then you are
absolutely correct.
When we think about that
saying deeper, it certainly rings
the bell of truth. How often do
we open our mouths and say
hurtful words? Unfortunately it
happens too many times in our
daily lives. Sometimes it is bet-
ter to grin and bear it, for it will
save the harsh words that
would have been spoken.
And then there is "Peter
Pan," for Disney movies cannot
be discussed without this in it.
The timeless truth about
remaining a child at heart is an
element that I believe every-
one, despite their age, should
honor. When a person takes
that moment to view life
through a child's eyes, the
world seems less complex, and
then the vibrant beauty of this
world can shine through. It can
be as simple as standing in awe
at the mid-summer's night sky
that can put that childhood
wonder back into your life.
One of the most inspiring
quotes is from Walt Disney
himself. He simply said, "All
of our dreams can come true if
we have the courage to pursue
You might want to read that
over again, for it has mighty
strong words. The courage to
pursue your dreams is what I
wish for each one of you, no
matter your age of "graduating

News-Sun Correspondent
was a hint of magic in the air
:.,' .Monday night at the Lake June
SBall Fields as Colby Delaney
tossed a perfect game and ent
3-for-3 at the plate including
the game-winning double to
highlight Delaney Fence's 9-0
thumping of Beef O'Brady's.
To say that Delaney was
dominating while throwing his
second no-hitter of the season
is something on an understate-
ment as the big 12-year-old
struck out 13 of 15 Beef
O'Brady's batters and handled
the only two balls put in play
one a popup and the other a
grounder to him for the final
out of the game at first base.
He struck out the first 11 bat-
ters he faced and provided all
the run support he would need
Sin the top half of the first
S "I'm just really proud of my
teammates," Delaney said after
the game. "They played a good
game. This feels good to me,
whoop-de-do; but really we
just wanted to play well as a
"In the last inning I was
thinking about the no-hitter and
the perfect game. I was just try-
ing to throw strikes and not to
think too much. My curveball
was my best pitch tonight. I
didn't want to use it too much,
but it was my strikeout pitch."
To the Beef O'Brady's hit-
ters, regardless of which pitch
Delaney threw, it was difficult
to get a bat on the ball.
"It was really tough and he
pitches really fast and starts
mixing speeds," said Beef
O'Brady's third baseman Scott
Cantwell of facing Delaney on
Monday. "He throws many
curveballs. They (curveballs)
look like they're going to hit
you and then they go right over
the plate."
Benny Aguilar was hit by a
pitch to open the game and J.B.
Tejan walked. Both runners
advanced into scoring position
on Josh Montero's groundout
to first base. Hitting in the No.
5 spot, Delaney drilled a two-
run double to the fence in left-
center field off Beef O'Brady's
starting pitcher Phillip "Pike"
Cloninger. Two more walks
and RBI singles by Gio Rosario
and Cody Tiner staked Delaney
Fence to a 5-0 lead.
Aguilar and Tejan both
walked and scored in the sec-
ond inning. Delaney hit his sec-
ond straight double and the
lead ballooned to 7-0.

12th Sertoma Tour tees off June 5

Sports Editor
SEBRING The Sertoma Junior Golf
Tour opens June 5 with the adult-child tour-
nament at SpringLake, and Tour founder
Tom McClurg is looking for the 12th year of
the tour to be "bigger and better" than ever.
"We'll have probably from 70 to 80 (kids)
for each event and we'll have a couple of big
events where we hope to have more,"
McClurg said.
The benefits of the Sertoma Tour have
been apparent at the high school level, par-
ticularly in Sebring, where the Lady Blue
Streaks have made it to state the last six
years in a row and the boys are also a peren-
nial power. This year, four Sebring golfers
signed college scholarships Cody
Brownell (Southern Virginia), Matt Cornuet
(St. Leo), Jocelyn Dunn (Embry-Riddle) and
Amanda Myers (Flagler) and McClurg
said the Tour played a part in their success.
"It just shows how far we've come," he

All-Star knocks off unbeaten

Highlands Independent, 7-6

Sports Editor ,
SEBRING Nicki Helms turned an
intentional walk into a game-winning single
and lifted her All-Star Car Sales team to a 7-
6 upset of undefeated Highlands Independent
Bank Tuesday night in 16-and-under youth
softball action Tuesday night at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
Helms' big hit came in the first inning of a
Texas tiebreaker, which starts every half-
inning with a runner on second. In the bottom
of the sixth inning on Monday, that was
Alexis Willey, who advanced to third when
Molly Blackman's sacrifice bunt was bob-
After Blackman stole second, Highlands
Independent pitcher Chelsea Vickers tried to
give Helms a free pass to load the bases, but
Helms had other ideas, smacking one deep

into the right-field gap to force in Willey with
the winner.
"I think (Vickers) let one stray too far
(inside)," All-Star head coach Scott Albritton
said. "I'm awfully proud of the girls."
Highlands Independent, which came into
the game 4-0 and with two wins over All-Star
(2-3), took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first on
singles by Vickers, Sam Lower and Tammy
Przychocki and Hannah Shoop's RBI ground-
out. Priya Patel's leadoff triple and Willey's
single in the second made it 3-1 before back-
to-back doubles by Shoop and Tammy
Przychocki in the top of the third put
Highlands Independent up 4-1.
All-Star tied the game with three runs in
the bottom of the third on just one hit -

said. "To me, that's what it's all about, teach-
ing kids good sportsmanship and getting
them a chance to play golf at the next level."
The Tour is currently producing the next
crop of high school stars, and McClurg said
the opportunity to play in a competitive
atmosphere is just what young golfers need
to improve their games.
"This is a chance for the kids that aren't as
good to improve themselves. They're all
going to get in there and play their matches
and play against tough kids. All the sports
these days are pretty much year-round and
you've got to keep a club in your hands 10 or
11 months a year if you want to do anything.
That's what it takes.
"For the older kids, it gets their games
sharp because we end in July and the high
school season starts in August.
"Experience is what it's all about. The
more you play, the better you'll get."
Cost for the adult-child is $60 per team,

from his home aAin.a St. ;
'Petersburg. "Hopefully, it
works really well for me and as
soon as possible."
Litsch, who was the 2004
Athletic Asso-
ciation pitcher
of the year,
was picked by
the Blue Jays
in the 24th LITSCH
round of last,,
year's draft as a draft-and-fol-
low pick, a rule that allows
clubs to keep exclusive signing
rights to a drafted junior col-
lege player until a week before
the next draft. The year before
that, he was a 37th round draft-
and-follow pick of the
Colorado Rockies.
And while he had a great
college career with the
Panthers, and likely would also
have had a good career at
Alabama, the chance to go pro
and the money the Blue Jays
offered was just too good to
pass up.

"I was ready to go. It was what
I wanted and I was just hoping
to get the opportunity.
"They're going to start me
out at extended spring training,
and I'll be there for three or
four weeks. It's right here in
my home town. Then they'll

Litsch was drafted as a pitch-
er, according to SFCC head
coach Rick Hitt, who said he'
has what it takes to make it to
the big leagues.
"He',s got pro ball-type stuff
and he's got a lot of intangibles
that a lot of players don't have
like work ethic and the desire
to win," Hitt said.
Litsch went 6-7 for the
Panthers this season, a record
that Hitt said is not nearly
indicative of the way he
pitched. The right-hander had
110 strikeouts and just 20
walks in 110 1/3 innings on the
mound, finishing with a 2.62
ERA. He was also pretty good
with the bat, hitting .338 with
seven home runs and 47 RBIs,
giving him another option if the
pitching career doesn't work
"I'm just real happy for that
guy," Hitt said. "He's worked
extremely hard at his craft and

something he's always

The Big T batters took their
cue, and, after Torres walked
and Kevin Allong beat out an
RBI infield single, rolled up the
four runs necessary to invoke
the 10-run rule so quickly, no
one on the field took notice, and
the game continued.
Officially, though, Emanuel
Vasquez's two-run double gave
Big T a 13-3 advantage and
closed out the contest.
"A bunch of my boys stepped
up tonight that hadn't been

Barnes said. "They got them

Kevin Kirkman, who went 3-

Sebring's Bryan to play for Webber

Sports Writer,
SEBRING Unlike North Dakota-bound
teammate Dion Williams, Sebring linebacker
Andrew Bryan isn't going far away to play col-
lege football.
Instead, Bryan will make the shortest possible
jump to college football from Highlands County
after signing a National Letter of Intent on
Monday to play for Webber International in
Babson Park.
"It's close to home, but it's not too close,"
Bryan said.
The all-county linebacker, who moonlighted at
safety enough to earn the team's award for best
defensive back last year, has the passion and the
acumen to be successful wherever he goes,
Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin said.

to steal third went behind the
bag, allowing him to score.
Acevedo, meanwhile, came all
the way around to score, too, as
Big T committed two more
errors on the play. Falis then
singled and scored on a wild
pitch to cap the rally.

Cody Higgins and Josh
Chavis combined on a one-hit

Wash waxed Alan Jay 9-0 on
Higgins worked three perfect
innings to open the game, strik-
ing out seven of the nine batters
he faced, and Chavis followed
with four innings that were
almost as good, allowing just a
fourth-inning single to Dylan
Sanders and two walks while
striking out seven.
Colton Statler went 3-for-4
with a double, two runs scored
and three RBIs to pace the
Lakeshore (10-2) offense.

Insulation used a monster rally
in the sixth inning to break
open a 5-5 tie and go on to a 18-

Avon Park had kept the game
close, but control problems
plagued the team late as West
Coast scored seven runs in the
sixth and six runs in the sev-
Jessey Dombrowski racked
up 17 strikeouts for West Coast
and scattered just three hits.
Teammates Riley McKenna
and Jimmy Goins each had a

B.J. Spires, and Takovem
Miller had hits for Avon Park.

Camiel White then walked and
Jamie Herskovitch followed
with an RBI triple. Stephanie
Venero drove home
Herskovitch on an RBI ground-
out, and Great Fruit scored the
rest of its second-inning runs
with two out.
Mercedes Weed walked, Sam
Mitchell reached on an error,
and both were knocked in by
back-to-back RBI singles from
Somer Smith and Aspen Kuhn.
Carson (2-2) and Godfrey
reached base by error, and
Brianna Tate walked before
White drove home the final run
of the inning on a triple that
found the gap in left-center.
White followed with a two-
RBI single in the fourth.
Jessica Cooley, who hit a
shot right back at the box for an
infield single in the first, and
Carli Watt, who drove home
two runs on a single, had the
Coca-Cola (0-3) hits.

"He's extremely physical," Hamlin said. "He
loves the game, and he plays it like he loves it."
Hamlin believes Bryan, a standout since his
days in Pop Warner, is well-equipped to handle
the complicated schemes and extra preparation in
the college game.
"Being a heady player comes from loving the
game," Hamlin said. "He's going to be able to
pick up those things, I think, a lot faster than
Bryan led the county in tackles last year with
40, and also chipped in 34 assists. He's expected
to fit in at linebacker in Webber's 3-5 scheme,
one that's headed by defensive coordinator Kelly
Scott, a key figure in Bryan's recruitment.
"He's a very convincing man," Bryan said of

Mercure rallies to top Jolly

News-Sun Correspondent
Enterprise Inc. and Jolly Lawn
Service had a scoring fest
Monday at the Lucy Derkman
Softball Complex as Mercure
was able to run away with a 17-
14 win in a 12-and-under soft-
ball game.
The win put Mercure at 6-4
on the year, while Jolly dropped
to 4-6.
As the coaches tried to keep
their teams from knowing the
score so they would keep play-
ing hard, the girls racked up
tons of runs, starting with Jolly
in the first inning when Britney
Scranton, Paizley Whidden,
Cheyenne Mills and Sarah
Hunnicutt all scored to put Jolly
up 4-0.
The lead didn't last long as
Mercure came up in the bottom
of the first inning and scored
five runs. Erin Dowdal led the
onslaught and was followed
home by Jade Moree, Dallas
Carlisle, Maura Hopkins and
Tykeria Tyson.
Scranton led the way for
Mercure again, scoring in the
top of the second inning.
Following Scranton's lead
Whidden, Cheyenne Mills,
Amber Harris and Morgan
Whitbeck all scored to give
Jolly a 10-4 lead.
Jolly had its best defensive
effort in the bottom of the sec-
ond, holding Mercure to just
two runs from Kaycee Mercure
and Moree.
Scranton again started the
scoring in the top of the third,
and she was followed by runs
from Whidden, Mills and

"It's $5 (per event) for kids 6
to 8 years old, $7 for 9-12 and
$12 for 13 and over. We've
only raised (the price) once in
12 years, so I think it's proba-
bly the most reasonably priced
tour in the state," he said.

The Firemen (7-3) had a 2-1
lead heading into the bottom of
the third before Sertoma (3-6)

grounder allowed Johnson to
score and tie the game.
SBuddy Mays followed with

Sertoma starter Brad Torres
struck out the side in the top of
the fourth and added two more
strikeouts, bringing his total to
seven, in the fifth before having
to leave the mound with a sore
arm after Evan Lewis walked
and scored on a wild pitch to
make it 4-3. Mays came on in
relief and got a pop-up to end
the inning with a runner in scor-
ing position, then pitched his
way out of a bases-loaded jam

on the wind
The sounds of the hurri-
cane winds that tore through
our neighborhoods and
homes last year are not
quickly forgotten.
My husband, Ken, and I
huddled together in the
"safe" corer we had pre-
pared in our house.
Ferocious winds beat one
side of the house causing
rain to slither under the win-
dows and sills of two rooms.
A creaking, tearing sound
on the roof made us think of
a giant claw hammer yank-
ing out nails and spitting
them into the wind. It was
wild to be sure. Like every-
one else, we were happy
when the wind passed and
quiet descended.
Yet, in only a few hours,
we were praying for even
the slightest breeze to dis-
rupt the hot, humid, still air.
I love the way Jesus
spoke about the wind in
relation to our spiritual
rebirth. Nicodemus, a
Pharisee, who came in
secret to see Jesus, declared
that he knew Jesus was from
God how could he do the
works of God otherwise?
Jesus affirms Nicodemus,
statement and says that any
person wanting to see the
kingdom of God must be
born again. Nicodemus
scratches his head in confu-
sion while Jesus patiently
explains to this learned
scholar what it is like to be
born of the Spirit of God.
And he uses the wind to
make his point.
"The wind blows wherev-
er it pleases. You hear its
sound, but you cannot tell
where it comes from or
where it is going. So it is
with everyone born of the
Spirit." (John 3: 8, NIV)
In other words, as The
Message puts it, "the invisi-
ble moving the visible."
Think of the effects of
comfortable breezes on the
landscape. Tree limbs sway,
leaves move gracefully,
flower heads bob and the
lake waters ripple. We may
not be able to locate the ori-
gin of the wind, but we are
caressed by its coming and a
song seems to be sung.
When we put our trust in
Jesus Christ, we are born
again of the Holy Spirit
whose indwelling, invisible
presence moves within us.
The results are visible in
how we think, speak and
Recently, a friend pointed
out that the screens on my
porch slowed down the
impact of the wind from
completely reaching my
wind chimes. Since wind
passes through the screens, I
hadn't considered them as
But when we hung the
chimes from corner eaves
outside, the difference was
incredible. Now as the
breezes blow, they are set
into motion and musical
whispers travel on the wind.
It makes me wonder what
"screens" may reduce the
impact of the Holy Spirit
blowing through my life.
Does fear, preferences or
impatience minimize the
Holy Spirit's true music?
I want to be sensitive to
step outside the box of these
"screens" so the whispers of
the wind of the Spirit may
blow through me to bless
others. Selah.

lag Day observed Tuesday

June 14, 1777, is when the American flag was born,
a to action taken by the Continental Congress on that

That first flag consisted of 13 stars and 13 stripes, with
stars and stripes representing the 13 original colonies
nted a year earlier by the Declaration of Independence.
But Flag Day to celebrate America's flag was not
born until 1885. That's when a schoolteacher organized a
program in Fredonia, Wis., to celebrate the 108th birthday
of the official adoption of the flag by Congress.
In 1889, another schoolteacher in New York City organ-
ized a similar program for his school, an idea later adopted
ythe New York State Board of Education.
The idea was catching fire. In the 1890s, in Philadelphia,
w York state and Chicago, celebrations were held on
pe 14 to honor the birth of the flag.
So, after three decades of these local and state celebra-
uins, Flag Day was officially established by a proclama-
tion of President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. But it was not
until Aug. 3, 1949, that President Harry S. Truman signed
an Act of Congress making June 14 of each year National
Flag Day.

This is the first photograph of the Star-Spangled Banner,
taken at the Boston Navy Yard in 1873.

yews-Sun correspondents
c Everyone grew up believing Betsy Ross made the first
'American flag, right?
SWell, it's probably fiction.
Marilyn Zoidis, senior curator of the Star-Spangled
Banner Project at the National Museum of American
History, said that while Betsy Ross was a Philadelphia flag-
er, "There is no documentation that she made the first
It was a family story told in the 1870s. We don't know
o made the first flag, nor do we know where it is or what
looked like."
According to the Web site wwm.us flag.org, the Betsy
ss story first surfaced in 1870, when one of her grandsons
talked about it at a meeting of the Historical Society of
Pennsylvania. This meeting took place 94 years after the flag
was supposedly made. So far, as Zoidis stated, no historian
has been able to verify the grandson's claims.
|As the Web page concludes. "In the days of Betsy Ross,
did not have the benefit of a frenetic press corps to wit-
ss, probe and record the events of the day. Careful histori-
do not accept legend and neither should we."

The poem that eventually became the

Even lost causes can bloom

I brought home a
pair of gardening
gloves and a packet
of morning glory
seeds as my table
favors from a ladies'
The gloves were
used immediately
but the seeds
required some
thought. Where

Realizing that the

back porch columns were bare,
I grabbed an empty plastic pot,
filled it with good earth, soaked
my seeds overnight as suggest-
ed, and set the now planted pot
at the base of the column.
What a disappointment to
find that the same pot had been
overturned the next morning.
What animal was responsible -
a feral cat? A raccoon? An
Since worrying about it was a
lost cause, I scooped up the
loose dirt, set the pot upright,
gave it some water and hoped
for the best. Just this week I
looked out my window, and saw
that those abused seeds had
sprouted after all.
Two plants were coming up
outside the planter and four
were rapidly growing in the
planter. Now I'm hopeful that
the nighttime culprit will leave
them alone and let them twine
up the column and produce
those heavenly blue flowers.
Growing up can be- haz-
ardous to your health! Just like
these plants, people often have
accidents and unexpected
upheavals in their lives. The

theme of maturing or
growing up is a com-

Donald Pfarrer's book "The

of courage and cowardice, as
marines find out what they real-

Undoubtedly, the best known
song from the musical "I Do!, I
Do!," which opened at HLT,s
Lakeside Playhouse last Friday
night, is "My Cup Runneth
Over With Love." The verse of
the poignant ballad, made
famous by singer Ed Ames, is a
miniature summary of the
play's narrative. Like the song,
the play starts with the "morn-
ing" of the marriage of Agnes
and Michael in Act One and,
quite predictably, ends with Act
Two in the "evening" of their
union, some 50 years later
when they have both turned
much older and wiser.
,-q jiThere are only two actors in
i this unique. ,musical play,'
Melanie Bdulay ,and Jerry
Pollard, who play Agnes and
Michael. Both are well-known
actors at Highlands Little
Theatre and experienced and
talented enough to be able to
carry the burden of maintaining
an audience's interest and atten-
tion for two and a half hours as
their roller coaster of a marriage
takes its spectators for a excep-
tional ride.
The two Zenon winners
explore the ups and downs of
domestic life with imagination
and flair. Jerry Pollard is able to
produce enough empathy to
make Michael's self-important
persona more human than it
probably merits, and Melanie
Boulay's Agnes charms despite
her character's affinity for tears
and a baffling blend of passive

The newlyweds

teenagers, problems, '

kids, the marriage of Roy I

Does it surprise you to learn
that the flag seen in that
"dawn's early light" still exists?
It did us.
Where is it?
The flag, which has been in
the hands of the Smithsonian
Institution since 1907, resides
in a laboratory at the National
Museum of American History.
Since 1996, experts have been
working on what's called The
Star-Spangled Banner
Preservation Project.

The flag now lays flat on a
platform behind a 50-foot long
floor-to-ceiling glass wall. The
lab is open to visitors.
Two of the early tasks
involved removing the approxi-
mately 1.7 million stitches that
attached the linen backing to
the flag, and removing harmful
materials from the surface of
the flag with non-abrasive cos-
hietic sponges.
A handout from the
Smithsonian reports the conser-
vators, wearing surgical scrubs
and using special tools, worked
at times on the flag on their
stomachs from a 32-foot wide
moveable gantry, or platform,

suspended four inches above
the flag.
Once the project is complet-
ed, the flag will be displayed in
a new Star-Spangled Banner
gallery, expected to open in
2007. In the meantime, visitors
can view the flag in the preser-
vation lab.
The flag, which originally
measured 30 feet by 42 feet,
now measures 30 feet by 34
feet, thanks to wear and tear
and the cutting off of pieces of
the flag for souvenirs. Of the
original 15 stars, 14 remain.
The 15th has been missing
since before 1873.

defend the fort, including hoist-
ing an emblem so big "the
British would have no trouble
seeing it from a distance."
Armistead contracted with a
Baltimore flag-maker, Mary
Young Pickersgill, to stitch a
flag 30 feet by 42 feet from 400
yards of wool bunting, with. 15
stars, measuring two feet from
point to point, and eight red and
seven white stripes, each two
feet wide. It weighed 50 pounds
and cost $405.90.
"Whose broad stripes and
bright stars, thro, the perilous
Francis Scott Key viewed the
bombardment, which started at
7 a.m. on Sept. 13, 1814, from

the deck of a British ship. What
was this American doing there?
Key was a lawyer and ama-
teur poet and was helping to
secure the release of an
American physician imprisoned
on one of the British warships.
Under a flag of truce, Key
sailed from Washington to
Baltimore and was able to
board the warship. The English
agreed to release the doctor but
because the battle was about to
begin, no one was allowed to
"O'er the ramparts we
watched, were so gallantly
So Key became a witness to
the "Battle of Baltimore." The
bombardment lasted for 25
hours, with some 1,500 bomb-
shells fired at the fort. Some of
the bombs had faulty fuses

which caused them to explode
before reaching their target. The
British also fired the new
Congreve rockets that gave off
wobbly arcs of red flame across
the sky.
"And the rockets, red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro, the night
that our flag was still there."
At "dawn's early light" on
Sept. 14, 1814, Key looked out
- and there was the flag. It's not
clear if that was the flag that
actually flew over the fort dur-
ing the bombardment. Some
historians suggest that a 17-foot
by 25-foot storm flag had flown
over the fort during the rain,
with the larger flag hoisted that
"0 say, does that star-span-
gled banner yet wave
,O'er the land of the free and

the home of the brave?"
Key felt so inspired by this
sight he started to write a poem
on the back of a letter he had
carried with him. Later, at a
Baltimore hotel, he finished the
poem, now made up of not one
but four verses. It was later pub-
lished under the title, "Defence
of Fort M'Henry." It soon
became a song, with the tune
taken from an English song
called "To Anacreon in
Heaven." One historian reports,
"In October (1814) a Baltimore
actor sang Key's new song in a
public performance, calling it,
"The Star-Spangled Banner."
In 1931, Congress made the
song the national anthem,
although it had already been
adopted as such by the Army
and Navy.

Find wildlife by learning about the places they call home

It has been a busy spring
filled with many field trips here
in the hammock. Most local
schools and many from the sur-
rounding communities have
brought their students to
explore the wonders of the
hammock with a ranger guide.
Students have taken walks, tram
rides and have learned more
about "the Real Florida."
Wildlife is always the popu-
lar topic, but this year's ques-
tions seemed to focus on habi-
tats and home ranges. The kids
wanted to know how the
rangers knew where to find the
animals. It's not a special gift,
rather it's the result of daily
All wildlife has specific habi-
tat requirements the factors
they need for survival. These
can include den or nesting

places, food sources, water,
some room to roam, and of
course, others of their species.
Students seemed interested to
know how the park had
changed since last summer's
hurricanes, and how the wildlife
was doing in spite of it all.
Some areas of the park have.
changed, but there is enough
natural space that some of'the
animals simply moved around.
All species have territories or
"home ranges" within their
habitats. Simply put, these are
the places within a habitat that a
species visits. As they travel
around within a habitat, they
create their territory.
Think of this territory like the
rooms of a house. Some areas
are for sleeping, others for eat-
ing, some for hunting and so
forth. Territories must provide

all the basic necessi- -
ties for survival.
When animals
leave their territories
due to predators or
loss of food, they
expose themselves to
starvation and other
predators. Simply
put, for many RAL I
wildlife species, it's
best to stay home. Doroth
This is the secret
of that extra-sensory
ranger skill finding
the animals. We observe
wildlife in the park every day.
We notice the patterns that
emerge in their movements.
After a while, we find ourselves
waiting in expectation for cer-
tain species to show up in cer-
tain areas.
By observing carefully, we

Spanish bayonet is hardy but requires delicate handling

The Spanish bayonet, or
Yucca aloifolio, is a very attrac-
tive plant if you like a tropical
look, but unless you can be a
full-time gardener who doesn't
mind working with his plant, be
forewarned: It is going to stab
you at some point, and the
wound is going to hurt.
I have been wounded by this
plant on numerous occasions.
To the credit of this plant, it did
keep some of the young men in
my neighborhood from bother-
ing my daughter during her
teenage years. They were
removed some years ago, how-
ever, and I do not intend to
replant them.

Spanish bayonet is native to
Florida and easy to raise. It will
grow from cuttings or from
sprouts around the base. It toler-
ates drought and is a favorite
along beaches and dunes. It will
grow in some of the poorest of
sands, such as Highlands
County's sugar sand or ball-
bearing sand technically
known as Archbold sand by the
soil scientists of Florida, as it is
one of the most abundant soils
on the property of Archbold
Biological Station near Venus.
The Spanish bayonet has
handsome flowers that are
white and somewhat cup like.
These flowers appear in the

springtime are held
erect by a plant part
called a panicle or
stalk. According to
the late Dr. John
Watkins, professor
emeritus of the
University of
Florida's horticulture
department, the petals
are edible.
This hardy plant
will grow well in full
sun or in the shade. It
can serve as a formi-
dable barrier to any
area that you would
not want intruders to
enter, and is used as
