Cinema 8 in Lakeshore Mall.
Some dressed up as their favorite "Star

sabers and "Star Wars" memorabilia, but
everyone came equipped with attention spans
long enough to sit through a two-hour, 26-
minute-long special-effects extravaganza.
Few seemed to leave disappointed as they
heaped praise on their last "Star Wars" blast. A
few expressed disbelief at witnessing the end
of a nearly 30-year cultural phenomenon,
one that began when "Star Wars: Episode IV:
A New Hope" barnstormed into theaters in
May 1977.
"'Star Wars" viewers who took in matinee

County plans to

repeat debris

removal method

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING If Highlands County had
seen only one hurricane in 2004, debris
removal would have been easy.
Yet with three storms, debris stayed on
the ground for months. The county
waived tipping fees to encourage private
citizens to carry their storm debris to the
county landfill, then used county road
crews to remove the rest from public
rights of way.
U.ing in-house labor keeps road crews
froni working on various road projects,
such as Airport Road. It also cost the
county funds that the Federal Emergency
Management Agency would not neces-
sarily pay back.
Costs
To date, the county has $3.3 million in
hurricane recovery costs approved eligi-
ble for FEMA reimbursement. The coun-
ty has gotten $1.2 million. Roughly 60
percent $1.98 million of the sub-
mitted costs were debris removal.
County Administrator Carl Cool said
some debris removal costs were from
clearing non-county maintained roads
and private roads. He did not have an
exact amount on Thursday of what wasn't
reimbursable.
However, Bruce Vanjaarsveld, supervi-
sor of the county road and bridge depart-
ment, estimated only one in 10 tons of
debris came from non-county maintained
and private roads.
The county got some help from the
Florida Department of Transportation
crews, Cool said.

ment did a remarkable job last year,"
Cool said. "If called (they) will do (it)

SEBRING Pat Taras has
resigned her position as execu-'
tive director of the Highlands
County Tourist Development
Council.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said Thursday that her
resignation letter gave no direct
reason. After he spoke with her,
she said she had to attend to
some family matters unrelated
to the job. She also said that the
transition from working in the
private to the public sector was
not progress-
ing as smooth-
ly as she had
hoped.
She said
Thursday
she'll be going
to the coast to
help family, TARAS
and still has a
home in Highlands County.
"I'm keeping my options
open," she said. "I wish them
well and hope they get some-
one who not only understands
tourism, but also governmental
(issues)."
She plans to stay available if
county staff needs someone to
advise them.
Her resignation will be
effective, two weeks. from
Wednesday. Last week, her job
%\as scheduled to be bid out by
the county as part of her six-
month temporary status.

SEBRING The
Highlands County
Abstinence Coalition
invites all fifth to 10th
graders to "Character It
Takes Courage!" Who do
you want to become?
You'll have a chance to
learn more about yourself
because big changes are on
the horizon! You'll also

peer pressure and how to
let the real you shine
through. There will be
skits, fun and a drawing
for door prizes.
Lunch and snacks will
be provided. The class will
be held from 8 a.m. to 3
p.m. Tuesday, June 14, at
Florida Hospital Heartland
conference rooms on Sun
'N Lake Boulevard. Call
386-6421 to pre-register.
The class session is
sponsored by the
Highlands County
Abstinence Coalition, a
collaborative effort by
Florida Hospital Parish
Nursing, Central Florida
Health Care Inc. and the
Highlands County Health
Department.
Stores reopen
SEBRING Two
Circle K stores closed dur-
ing last year's hurricanes
will be reopening this
weekend. The stores are at
the corner of U.S. 98 and
U.S. 27 and on Hammock

_ COKKtCIIONS
In a recent story about the
kickoff for the Highlands Art
League's Change for our
Children program, it was inad-
vertently omitted that the event
took place at the Sparta Road
home of Tim and Martile
Blackman.
The Sebring couple has host-
ed the event several times in
the past.
The correct phone number
for Peace River Refuge and
Ranch is (863) 735-0804. A
previous article had a different
phone number.
Also, the animals at the
refuge must always be in their
cages when tranquilized. That
was not made clear in the story.

A South Florida Community
College employee was incor-
rectly identified as Lyne
Gardner in a photo that ran in
the May 13 edition of the
News-Sun. Juanita Elmore, the
executive secretary in the
Criminal Justice Academy at
SFCC, is the woman's name.
In an article Sunday, describ-
ing early FCAT scores, the
passing grade for the Writing
A+ portion of the test was
incorrect. A student needs to
achieve a 3.5 proficiency level,
not a 3.0.
The News-Sun regrets any
confusion these errors might
have caused.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING If approved for
full funding, the county may be
able to repair 16-20 houses very
soon with a Community
Development Block Grant.
In addition, the county has
signed on a pledge of $30,000
to enter into the HOME
Investment Partnership
Consortia. The two moves
together should help the county
upgrade substandard housing
with repairs and build new low-
to moderate-income housing, as
well as partner with surround-
ing counties on development
projects.
When some homes qualify
for just repair and not replace-
ment, that will help the county
do more, said J. Corbett Alday
III, chief executive officer of
Meridian Community Services
'Group Inc. He and Housing
Coordinator Penny Phillippi put
together the grant applying for
$750,000 from the CDBG pro-
gram under the housing rehabil-
itation category through the
Department of Community
Affairs.
For the grant, the county will
pledge, to spend $350,000 in
State Housing Initiative
.Partnership, HOME Again and/
or hurricane relief funds as a
local match. Phillippi said
Highlands County is starting to


show a higher median income,
so she had to put in more of a
local match to qualify the coun-
ty for the grant.
Partnership
In the meantime, Highlands
County has agreed to join
forces with DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry and
Okeechobee counties to build
the HOME Investment
Partnership Consortium. Each
county will put in $30,000, but
can expect to get that money
back and more in grants and
loans.
Highlands County Housing
Department will be the lead
agency in the six 'counties,
according to the agreement.
At this point, Phillippi said,
members hope this will allow
the smaller counties to get big-
ger housing developments by
increasing the pool of funds
available to all of them.
Commissioner Bob Bullard,
noting that this is a new pro-
gram, and the only rural one of
its kind, recommended
Phillippi bring back an annual
report to mark progress.
He also wanted to make sure
the agreement notes exactly
how much of the pool
Highlands County will use for
administering the program.
Otherwise, the agreement
might get expensive in operat-
ing costs.

E-mail scam using fake U.S. postal money orders


County has not
seen scam yet
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING There's a new
Internet e-mail scam, one that
apparently hasn't hit in
Highlands County yet. But that
doesn't mean people won't run
into it.
Scam artists are now cou-
pling e-mail fraud with fake
U.S. Postal Service money
orders.
Basically, someone from out-
side the country befriends a per-
son in America through an
Internet chat room or dating site
pretending. to be an aid worker,
student, member of the military
or anyone else outside the coun-
try. This acquaintance then asks
the local to purchase something
for them and ship it, such as a
laptop computer.
:The scain artist then pays
their friend .with a fake U.S.
Postal Money Order, usually
sent overnight.
U.S. Postal Inspector Linda
Walker said there are not a lot
of good counterfeit money
orders, but neither ordinary

Dots hit by

'smash and

grab' burglary
SEBRING Dot's Coffee
House & Restaurant was
allegedly hit early Monday
morning by a "smash and grab"
burglar.
Allen Wilkerson, cook and
manager, said someone broke
the window and took the cash
register in the early morning
hours Monday.
The checkout counter stands
by the front entrance, adjacent
a plate glass window. When the
store was closed, the register
drawer was empty and left
open to show any burglars it
was empty.
Staff was able to get another
cash register and set up the
,store in time for breakfast.
Programming the cash register
was the difficult thing, said
wife, Tammy Wilkerson.
"We've been in business for
16 years," Allen Wilkerson
said. "This is the first time this
has happenedd"
They called Wal-Mart and
the nearby Bank of America
branch to see if any security
cameras picked up movement
at the time. No one was caught
on film, he said.

lia. Bail was set at $1,500.
Police arrived at 12:20 a.m.
Tuesday at a disturbance on
Sabal Palm Drive. The other
party handed them parapherna-
lia that belonged to Coggen.
According to arrest reports,
Coggen confessed to being the

people nor bank tellers would
know the difference.
What's worse, if it comes
back as fake, the local banks go
after the local victim.
"There's no one else to go
to," she said. The Postal Service
has no jurisdiction outside the
country.
Across the nation, the prob-
lem is rampant. It's gotten so
bad, Walker said, the Postal
Service immediately sends
counterfeit money orders to its
forensics lab in Memphis to
process for fingerprints and
other clues.
The Postal Inspection
Service only learns about an
estimated half of the cases of
counterfeiting. Walker hasn't
learned of any such scams in
Highlands County, but local
law enforcement does not
always deal with her office. If
victims report to police, they
should also call postal inspec-
tors, she said.
.Nell Freewin Hays, with the
crime prevention unit at the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, said no one has reported
any such scams to her office so
far.
"Always be alert to someone


who wants (you) to make a pur-
chase they should make for
themselves," Hays said. "It's
just not good business."
Walker said there are several
ways to spot a fake money
order.
When held to the light, a
watermark of Benjamin
Franklin is repeated from top to
bottom on the left side.
When held to the light, a
dark line (security thread) runs
from top to bottom with the
word "USPS" repeated in it.
There should be no discol-
oration. around the dollar
amounts, which might indicate
amounts were changed.
Domestic postal' money
orders may not exceed $1,000,
and international postal money
orders may not exceed $700..
If you have questions about
postal money orders or want to
report a scam, call the Tampa
area U.S. Postal Inspection
Service office at (813) 2'81-
5200 or the post office nearest
you.

and attended World Harvest &
Restoration Church in Avon
Park.
Survivors include her moth-
er, Phyllis Cole of Avon Park;

Cremation arrangements are


n


from a counterfeit U.S. Postal
Money Order:

Postal customers
Be skeptical of anyone
asking you to wire money to an
overseas bank account or to
cash money orders or checks on
their behalf.
Know who you're dealing
with. Never give out personal
or financial information to any-
one you don't know.
Familiarize yourself with
postal money order security
features.
Never wire funds to any-
one unless you're sure the
money order or check they gave
you was cleared by your bank
and the funds released.
Business owners
Never accept money
orders or checks for more than
the selling price.
Never agree to wire funds
to a buyer. Legitimate buyers
won't pressure you to do so,
and you have limited recourse if
there's a problem.
Resist pressure to "act
now." If the buyer's offer is
good now, it will be good when
the check or money order
clears.

'~ Highlands County report


James Beasley

.charged with

battery, false
imprisonment
SEBRING James
Richard Beasley, 26, of
Sebring, has been charged-
under a warrant with false
imprisonment and domestic
battery. A blanket bond was
set at $15,000.
Beasley is accused of hold-
ing a 19-year-old woman
against her will on April 20
and battering her by grabbing
her by the hair, choking her,
and kicking her in the mouth
and right arm.
The couple was arguing at
the time, and Beasley was
reportedly trying to prevent
her from leaving.
He was charged April 26.


Man facing

SEBRING For alleged-
ly holding a cocked gun to
the head of a woman,


Reginald Renaldo Hadley, 44,
of Sebring, has been charged

County's spare goods up for grabs online


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County's surplus equipment
will be available through an
online auction.
On Tuesday county commis-
sioners approved a request to
contract with an online service
to sell county surplus in a style
similar to eBay.com. The coun-
ty will contract with GovDeals
(www.GovDeals.com), an
Internet auction service compa-
ny based in Montgomery, Ala.
Buyers will pick up items


from the county, ,eliminating
shipping costs.
Items will stay on the site for
10 days. Bids deemed too low
will be rejected.
Items must be declared sur-
plus by surplus, county general
services and purchasing direc-
tor Jed Secory said, and adver-
tised in local media.
By offering the items at any
time, the county will be able to
clear out surplus properly
faster, Secory added.
Technology and electronics
will be bundled into larger


blocks, he said. The longer they
sit in the warehouse, the more
obsolete they become.
He expects to see a 60-80
percent increase in the money
received because more people
can see and bid on the equip-
ment. That would more than
cover the $5 minimum fee the
site charges to sellers.
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson asked how staff would
.judge a fair bid. Secory said
he'd measure against similar
equipment for sale from other
local governments.


Legislative session ends with accomplishments, leaders say


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE With the

million to the voluntary Pre K

SEBRING The "Florida"
outdoor drama received
$35.000 in marketing funds
from the Tourist Development
Council Thursday to promote
its new amphitheater.
The money will he spent on
building public demand for the
theater before it opens in
October 2006, said Teresa
Stein, the consulting manager
for the Florida Heartland
Heritage Foundation Inc.
In other action, the TDC
rejected a request by the county
Traffic Operations for road
signs directing motorists to
Henscratch Farms. The vine-
yard is one of 13 certified vine-
yards and among 21 total vine-
yards in the state.
The -Florida Department of
Transportation will put up four
signs about the winery on U.S.
27 and State Road 66, County
Engineer Ramon Gavarrete
said.
The county wants to install
five or six signs at $125 each on
local roads for Henscratch
Farms and. two to four signs
directing people to the welcome
center at the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce,
Gavarrete said. Outside con-
tractors tend to bid $200-$225
per single-post sign.
TDC member Debra Worley
moved against helping with the
signs because it's a commercial
vineyard. TDC member Mark
Stewart said using roads signs
as ads would qualify other busi-
nesses for signs.
A similar request for the
Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce got tabled. TDC
members want to hear whether
the Lake Placid chamber has
funds to help put up signs.
The TDC welcome center in
Sebring will get FDOT signs on
both sides of it. TDC Executive
Director Pat Taras said the
office itself needs a larger live-
foot-square sign than just the
portion of the Tower Plaza sign.

Guide, Web site
After months of waiting on a
TDC visitor's guide, board
members voted to print one
without advertising from the
communities.
iMeanwhile. the TDC is wait-
ing feo a completed Web site


from Miles Media Group Inc.
of Sarasota. Taras said she has
been promised one by June I.

Outdoor drama
The Florida Heartland
Heritage Foundation is waiting
to hear about grant applications
for as much as $3 million from
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, $750,000 from the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development
Community Improveiment Fund
and $500.000 in a state Cultural
Facilities Grant.
Before approving the funds,
TDC members discussed
whether amphitheater shows
would be off-season. Stewart
said the October to April season
would have four "shoulder"
months outside of :he regular
January to March tourist sea-
son, so it would qualify.
Foundation representative
Anne Reynolds, said the
amphitheater would be open
year-round and include other
events for Florida writers, sto-
rytellers, archeology and histo-
ry, and local weddings and
graduations.


TDC Funds
As of May 9, the Tourist
Development Council had
$367,964 in available bal-
ance.
Year-to-date, the county
has spent $38,428 on per-
sonnel services for Executive
Director Pat Taras' salary and
benefits.
Other expenses include
(rounded to nearest dollar):
Communications
and freight; $2,541;
Contradtual servic-
es $9,497;

again this year."
Waived tipping fees for
storm debris, according to
Landfill Operations Manager
Dick Gorman, amounted to as
much as $531,916 in 'unpaid
loads from hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne. Of that,
$80,500 came from Charley,
$59,000 from Frances, and
$392,405 from Jeanne.
Compared prices
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols defends
using county crews to clear
debris, because of the expense.
Doing it in-house saved costs
that could have seriously hurt
the county budget, Nichols
said.
i If it's a declared emergency,
FEMA will reimburse usually
only 75 percent of the cost,
Nichols said. In 2004, FEMA
covered 90 percent and the state
covered 5 percent, but that was
rare, he said.
County staff estimated it
would have cost $6 million to


remove debris after Hurricane
Charley Nichols said. At 25
percent, the county would have
paid $1.5 million; at 5 percent,
$300,000.

"That's still a lot of money if
it's a declared disaster,"
Nichols said.
Delays
Whether or not county road
crews cleared debris, regular
road projects would have been
slowed or delayed'for other rea-
sons, such as
supply prob-
lems or fuel
shortages,
Nichols said.
Besides that,
regular county
emplo yees
NICHOLS staff the
Emergency
Operations Center and its func-
tions during a declared state of
emergency and must provide
critical services to the commu-
nity. Non-critical services are
put aside.
"It's a part of business, when
it comes to hurricanes,"
Nichols said.

said, quoting Ronald Reagan in
saying people just need to know
where to look.
"I know I'm looking at a
group of them now," Sarah
Hopton told deputies, police
officers and correctional offi-
cers assembled in the breeze
and shade on the tight lawn in
front of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office. Almost 200
people attended the event.
Each officer, she was sure,
knew they could die any day in
the line of duty. She was equal-
ly certain her father didn't wake
up on a hot July morning
expecting or wanting to die. He
just wanted to be a good dad,
husband and captain.
"You see, you aren't a hero
for what you do," she said;
"you're a hero for what you're
willing to do."
Hopton stood in to speak in
place of Lake County Deputy
Sheriff Bill Crotty, who fell ill
over the weekend. Crotty was
shot in February with two other
Lake County deputies while


investigating a domestic dis-
pute.
Last year, 154 law enforce-
ment officers died while on
duty, 12 of them in Florida -
the third highest number behind
Texas and California, Sheriff
Susan Benton told the crowd.
While the military protects
freedoms overseas, Benton
said, more than 800,000 police
officers protect freedoms state-
side. All of their families know
that each day brings unknown
dangers.
"Thank you for your sacri-
fice," she said.

Highlands County presented a,
wreath, with assistance from'

By PHIL ATTINGER

the first named storm of the

Hurricane Adrian hit the west

is expected to reach Cuba by
the dawn hours on Sunday.
Highlands Court\
Emergency Management
,Director Bill Nichols said the
National Hurricane Center hjs
an error cone that puts
Hurricane Adrian near the
Florida Keys by Sunday.
"It could be a non-event, but
it's foolish not to watch .."
Nichols said.
The National Weather
Service tracked the storm at 2
p.m. Thursday with maximum
sustained winds of 75 mph and
higher gusts. Stronger winds
were expected over elevated
terrain.
Last night, the Category 1


hurricane hit the coast of El
Salvador, moving northeast at
about 9 mph, expected to
increase its forward speed.
,Hurricane force winds were
within 15 miles of the center
and tropical stQrm force winds
extended uLp o.70 miles.
Still, the National Weather
.Service issue a letter to
; Nichols, and other emergency
nianagement-'bffice's in Florida
saysng,. .y -"emphasize" that:
there' s inrtuall no chance"
.,;he gort~~will impact the Gulfl
of RlNlco.
"Theie\ e re so ,ut re it was not
,, going to impact the peninsula,
that ii made me orr)," Nichols
said.
When the storm crosses
Central America and reaches
the Gulf of Mexico, if it is still
hurricane or tropical storm
force, it will become an Atlantic
Ocean storm and change names
to "Arlene."


FORCE
Continued from 1A
Even though "Revenge'.' is
the first "Star Wars" filni to
receive a PG-13 rating instead:
of a PG, and one that even
Lucas has described as;
"Titanic" and a major tearjerk-
er, Spade wasn't rattled.
"I have seen all the mo\ ies."
she said. "The special effects
are great, and the story is great.
It compares to the first three. It
really wraps things up."
Ann Wood of Lake Placid
described "Revenge" as "a little
long" but with great special
effects.
"I've seen all the movies. It's
been a long time," Wood said.
"It's not as exciting as the first
one or some of the others, but
then we've seen a lot more of
them now."
Wood praised the film for
being somewhat family friendly
by avoiding profane language


TARAS
Continued from 1A
She was hired by the county
in November 2004 for a six-
month temporary position to
oversee use of the tourist tax
funds, -according to wishes of
the TDC. Previously, Taras had
done the same job for the
Convention and Visitors
Bureau, which disbanded last
year.
The county will advertise the
job to get a replacement, Cool
said. VisitFlorida has a month-
ly newsletter, and he expects to
get applicants through there.
Cool said the position is a
director's position. It must go
through routine hiring proce-
dure adertisement and
interviews before he sub-
mits an applicant to the county
commission for approval.
Once chosen, the executive
director will be a full-time
employee, with full benefits.
For now, Taras has passed
some of the.TDC projects over
to Cool. She will pass others on
to the TDC after she talks'to the
marketing committee on
Thursday.
The county has some tempo-
rary help for the Tourist


and blood-and-guts violence.
She said most of the action
came from the light-saber fight-
ing that kids today seemed to
enjoy.
While early attendance has
been good, the deluge is
expected today. Carmike
Cinema 8 is showing "Revenge
of the Sith" on four screens,
which will hopefully be enough
to open a seat for everyone.
That reflects better treatment
than the original "Star Wars"
got when 20th Century Fox
released it in fewer than 40 the-
aters, expecting it to flop.
"Revenge," on the other hand,
is going out with a bang, play-
ing on 3,661 screens across the
nation.
Even, so, some local fans
were not taking any chances
and were stopping by the the-
ater on Thursday to buy
advance tickets.
For show times, call the
hiovie hotline at 471-1179.


Development Council and the
tourism welcome center at
Water Tower Plaza in Sebring,
Cool said. That office will
remain open.

Special STARS smashes a win with tennis clinic


Eleven players get
first lesson in tennis
at Saturday clinic
* More photos are on page 14A
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
t was a typical Florida morning:
bright sun, blue skies, puffy white
clouds. And then the stars came
out.
Stars? Yes, but make that Sliecial
STARS as in Sports Training.And
Recreational Services which provides
sports and recreational training for all
people with disabilities in Highlands
County.
Special STARS Coordinator Cindy
Marshall maintains a board of directors,
which plans a variety of activities from
bowling to dances. And in May, the
group organized a tennis clinic to intro-
duce this sport..
The event, taking place May 11 at
the South Florida Community College
tennis courts, attracted 11 people and
most had never held a racquet before.
The group included Beth Blanchard,
Owen Barnhill, Shawn.Squires, Eva
Monk, all of Sebring; and Betty Jo
Burnett, Donna Addison, Dianne
Bigelow, Maria Concepcion, Carlitha
Hawkins and Sharon Carpenter, all
from Avon Park. Joby Hostetler,
nephew of Barnhill, participated for
fun.
Along with the 11 Special STARS
athletes, six senior citizens who,play
tennis volunteered to serve as coaches.
Coaches were Charles and Georgette
Craig and Donna Price, from
Reflections on Silver Lake in Avon
Park; Joe Young and Elaine Levey,
from Crystal Lake Club in Avon Park;.
and Stewart Hayner from Sun 'N Lake
in Sebring.
After Marshall showed the athletes
how to grip a racquet and how to han-
dle the basic tennis strokes, the 11 \ ere
divided into three groups with two


LARRY LEVEY/News-Sun
Betty Jo Burnett, of Avon Park, sharpens up her hand-eye coordination under the
watchful eye of her coach, Charles Craig (right) of Reflections on Silver Lake in Avon
Park. Waiting their turn are (from left) other Special STARS athletes, Donna Addison
of Avon Park and Owen Barnhill of Sebring. The event was a Special STARS tennis
clinic May 14 at South Florida Community College in Avon Park.


coaches per group. The players started
by bouncing the ball with their rac-
quets; and they practiced forehand and
backhand volleys, ground strokes and
serving, with the coaches offering one-
on-one instruction. The players then
competed in a variety of drills. For
example, how many times can you
bounce the ball in 30 seconds? How
many serves out of five land in the
service area?
It was hard to tell \\ hi had the better
time last Saturday, the players or the


coaches.
Perhaps Blanchard, one of the ath-
letes, summed up the feeling of her fel-
low-athletes by raising her racquet in
the air and exclaiming, with a whoop-

and-a-holler, "I'm learning!"
And Burnett, attending her first
Special STARS event, said that morn-
ing was "very wonderful. I had a lot of
fun. I hope we can do it again."-
Barnhill also enjoyed himself. "This
gives me somrnething to do. I like sport-
ing e enuts."


And Squires enjoyed the day for sev-
eral reasons. "This was good. It gives
us a chance to meet other people and to
participate in activities. And we get to
spend quality time with Cindy. She's a
good person. We wouldn't be here with-
out her. She's the glue for this organiza-
tion."
As for the volunteer coaches,
Georgette Craig was impressed with the
attitude of the athletes. "They were all
eager to learn and even though it was
hot, they didn't give up."
Hayner said, "It gives these folks the
opportunity to get out of their normal
routine. I'm pleased to be a part of it."
Further, he said, the event was "dog-
gone well organized."
Charles Craig liked "seeing the joy
they got out of being there. You feel
happy for them."
Elaine Levey enjoyed promoting ten-
nis and hoped some of the athletes will
keep on playing the game.
Young agreed the event was success-
ful. "Tennis is a difficult to learn if
you're new at it. But the players got
something out of it. Cindy did a good
job demonstrating the strokes."
For Price, the clinic "was better for
the instructors than for the players.
Why? Because we are doing something
for somebody else. That makes me feel
good."
,Points were awarded for successful
tries and scores were kept by the coach-
es. All players received a ribbon denot-
ing first, second, third or fourth place in
their skill level,
The idea behind the event, Marshall
said, was'to teach the basic strokes of
tennis and to find out if the athletes
would like to see tennis as a regular
Special STARS activity.
The answer was an unanimous "Yes"
by the group. So, tennis will remain on
the agenda. Marshall is now exploring
the idea of teaming up Special STARS
athletes with local seniors in a once-a-
week, one-month tennis league in the
upcoming ear.
For.information on Special STARS,
call Marshall at 452-6607.

reconcile and grow old
together, all lovingly to the

score that includes the stan-

Ivory Club hosts newest county commissioner


13A


RIF gets even funner


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Ivory
Club of Highlands County con-
tinued its effort to bring the
decision makers to the people
Wednesday evening as they
hosted Highlands Count) s
newest county commissioner,
Barbara Stewart.
She spoke for about 10 min-
utes touching briefly on the
issue of impact fees and how
she had followed her election
platform during her first six
months in office.
"Making doubly sure to be
prepared is the biggest chal-
lenge," she said. "And no mat-
ter how hard you work at it,
there are always things that sur-
prise you."


Stewart, who won the seat
vacated by former county com-
missioner David Flowers when
he stepped down to seek the
sheriff's post, did not come in
unprepared. She had attended
virtually all of the county com-
mission meetings and work-
shops for a year before the elec-
tion in an effort to get up to
speed on the issues.
That, coupled with her exist-
ing background in government
and work as a consultant to
local government, already had
given her a leg up.
"I have knowledge in hous-
ing, planning and many of the
related community develop-
ment issues," she said. "I can't
imagine people with no back-


ground coming in and starting
up."
Stewart said another problem
she'd had as a member of the
commission
was getting
people to
understand that
asking ques-
Stions did not
.- necessarily
) mean that she
STEWART was negative
on an issue, but
that she was looking for the
necessary information to make
.a proper decision.
"It seems like one question is
OK, two questions raise an eye-
brow but three or more and it
seems people think you're


opposed to whatever it is."
A big believer in the
"cost/benefit analysis" theory
of government, Stewart repeat-
ed her view that the commis-
sion should always be cautious
in spending taxpayers' money.
Among other committees she
is a liaison to, Stewart works
with the transportation safety
committee, the Heartland Water
Alliance, the community traffic
safety team and public safety
committees among others.
Stewart has answered a lot of
questions.
"The only thing I didn't like
is I had a call the other night at
1:30 in the morning," she said.
"They wanted to talk about get-
ting their road paved."

Can't trust the

government

Editor:
Defying any concept of truth
or logic is the absurd assertion
by the White House talking
head that a recent article in
Newsweek had damaged
America's reputation and
standing in the world. This
goes way beyond the pot call-
ing the kettle black!
What dignity and respect
America managed to retain
after the "farce of 2000" was
summarily flushed down this
aptly described toilet upon the
invasion of Iraq. Orchestrated
by our own would-by dictator,
Attila the Texan, and his band
of crusaders, lies, half-truths
and misinformation were used
to justify this unprecedented
aggression. This was, unfortu-
nately, only one step in the neo-
conservative republican blue
print for the future: the "Project
for the New American
Century."
Newsweek reportedly used
an "anonymous reliable gov-
ernment source" for their a..
'cle the same type of "anony-
mous reliable government
source" utilized, by the Bush
administration to spread propa-
ganda and misinformation to
the public. There appears to be
a moral here. Obviously you
can't trust what this- govern-
ment says.
C.E. Willson
Sebring

Visit the schools

and then decide
Editor:
I take exception to Russell
Willsey's letter that appeared in
the May 18 edition.
Mr. Willsey, I am a teacher at
Sebring High School and I for
one resent being called godless,
and I have never "pushed"
humanism, atheism, etc. In my
nine years of teaching here in
Highlands County I have met
many very good teachers, and
not a single one had red scales
and a bifurcated tail. Some of
my colleagues are very reli-
gious and some are not, either
way I have never heard of a sin-
gle teacher "pushing" any reli-
gious doctrine.
I put three children through
public school here and not once
in all those years did the ques-
tion of a teacher "pushing" any
ideology ever arise.
You stated that "much of the
curriculum is useless and with-
out purpose." Well, let's look at
the requirements to graduate
from a public high school in
Florida:' four years of English,
three years of social, studies,
three years of math, three years
of science, one credit of physi-
cal education, one credit of art
(fine or practical), and nine
elective credits. Hmm, so far I
haven't listed anything that
seems useless. Do we offer
electives that are a bit frivo-
lous? I suppose so, if the last
time you were in school was
during the Hoover administra-
tion.


Students require more than
reading, writing and arithmetic
in order to be at least a little
prepared for adult life. They
need to. be exposed to things
like keyboarding (typing, in our
day), parenting, cooking, and
other vocational type courses.
The last time I looked at our
course offerings I did not see
any courses titled, atheism,
humanism, or devil worship-
ing.
Mr. Willsey, you state that
our government is a failure. As
both a veteran and teacher, I
strongly take.objection to that
statement. While I may not
agree with all decisions made
by our lawmakers, I am proud
to teach our community's youth
about our government's history,
the timelessness of our
Constitution, and the rights our
government affords its citizens
- including the right for you
to make such unsupported and
uninformed statements. I am
also grateful that our country
has grown and evolved
throughout its existence.
Our experience in
Afghanistan has shown us the
danger of a government con-
trolled by religious zealots who
would remain philosophically
in the 17th century where
women were relegated to being
property of men, .people of
color were segregated away
from "good" folk, and anything
different was considered
"witchcraft" and must be
destroyed.
I hope that I am being too
sensitive to your remarks.
Perhaps you were speaking in
generalities. Unfortunately, I
am afraid that you are being all
too serious.
Mr. Willsey, I invite you to
come to Sebring High School,
visit some classrooms, and see
how "useless" we are.
I am one of many teachers
using portable classrooms, and
they are not by any means the
same as a classroom in a build-
ing. Come to my classroom
during a thunderstorm and then
leave when the bell rings. You,
along with the students, will be


soaking wet when you get to
your next class. Oh well, you'll
dry out, unless you happen to
be standing on the aluminum
ramp when lightning strikes!
Well, hopefully you have insur-
ance.
Tornado watch? Quick, leave
the portable and run through
Sthe storm into a real. building!
Have an emergency in the
classroom and need to summon
help quickly? Portables don't
have "panic buttons" like real
classrooms do, so while the
emergency is happening some-
one has to pick up the phone
and call the front office. With
luck, the phone won't be busy
and someone will get all the
way across campus in time to
help.
People who criticize others
should take a minute to exam-
ine themselves before casting
aspersions on others, no one is

POINTS TO PONDER

Pauline Au yang


Delinquent

fathers

Blended families, step-fami-
lies, alternatives families, dis-
mantled families experts
agree that 50 percent of all
first-time marriages ends in
divorce. Additionally, 60 per-
cent of all second marriages
also ends in divorce. 1.5 mil-
lion children suffer from the
consequences of a broken
home.
Whether it's divorce, separa-
tion or annulment, parents must
never forget their responsibili-
ties to their children. Seldom is
this matter addressed amicably.
This is due to the hurt, anger
and bitterness that follows.
The case of he said ... she
said ... he did ... she did ... they
did is featured prominently. "I
did" is left out of the picture.
There is no remorse for the
pain caused, only hurled blame.
Child support becomes a big
issue. The father who claims to
love the child/children refuses
or is reluctant to voluntarily
give child support. It is there-
fore left up to the court of law
to decide for that parent how
much money the child must
receive.

that woman is no good ... I
can't allow her to spend my

would rather quit his job rather

Fathers have a financial
responsibility to support their
children. What good is an
empty expression of love
to their child/children, yet
through spite and malice they
choose not to give. Fathers
have to get past the ugliness
that caused the breakdown in
their relationship.
Children don't need a father
who shows up on special occa-
sions or celebrations ... show-
ing up is nothing but a mere
distraction to the child and a
self gratification to the father.
Children need to feel
loved, be loved and celebrated,
not to be used as an object of
hostility.

News-Sun, Friday, May 20, 2005 17A


time to 'Click It or Ticket' across the state


The statewide
effort to have drivers
buckle up is coming.
"Click it or Ticket"
is May 23 to June 5. I
This is a statewide
effort that is conduct-
ed simultaneously by
the Florida Highway
Patrol, all sheriff's
offices as well as the HIG
police agencies
through out the state. HO
During this time
frame you may be DEPUT
pulled over for any
minor violation and
likely end up with a ticket for
not wearing your seat belt. So
you should ask yourself, is it
worth $71.50 to not wear your
seat belt?
You also have to wonder,
why does the state go to such
great lengths in an effort to have
people wear their seat belts?
Well, there are a lot of reasons.
Here are just a few of the rea-
sons to wear your seat belt.
According to the Safety Belt
Use Fact Sheet, in 1998 there
were 2,889 traffic fatalities and
more than 241,000 injuries in
motor vehicle crashes on
Florida highways. Over 59 per-
cent of drivers who were fatally
injured were not using available
restraint systems.
Estimates show that if
Florida had a primary enforce-
ment safety belt law, 200 lives
would be saved and 6,134
injuries prevented the first year.
This represents $385.1 million
in potential savings to taxpay-
ers.
According to a 1999 Florida
survey (source: 1999
Observational Survey of Safety


H

rT
TY


Belt and Child
Restraint Use in
Florida), use of child
safety restraint :sys-
tems ranged from a
low of 45.3 percent in
Marion County, to a
high of 83.7 percent
in Volusia County.
Traffic-related
WAY injuries are the lead-
ing cause of death for
.INE children and young
adults ages 6 to 27.
j.p. Research also shows
that minority youth
are at an even greater
risk because they are less likely
to be buckled up.
In Florida, the highest safety
belt usage was observed in
women and men over 60 years
of age, and the lowest use rates
were found in men driving light
trucks, vans and cars.
Businesses pay the price at a
cost of $22,000 per on-the-job
crash, and $110,000 per injury
due .to lost productivity and
higher insurance and medical
costs.
The "top 10" Florida coun-
ties with the highest number of
motor vehicle fatalities are
Dade, Broward, Hillsborough.
Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas,
Polk, Duval and Volusia.
Between 1975 and 2000,
safety belts prevented 135,000
fatalities and 3.8 million
injuries, saving $585 billion in
medical and other costs. If all
vehicle occupants had used
safety belts during that period,
nearly 315,000 deaths and 5.2
million injuries could have been
prevented and $913 billion
in costs saved. (National
Highway Traffic Safety


Administration, Economic
Impact of Crashes, 2002)
In 2000, the deaths and seri-
ous injuries prevented by safety
belts resulted in savings of $50
billion in medical care, lost pro-
ductivity and other injury-relat-
ed costs. (NHTSA, Economic
Impact of Crashes, 2002)
Motor vehicle crashes in
2000 cost a total of $230.6 bil-
lion, an amount equal to 2.3
percent of the gross domestic
product, or $820 for every per-
son living in the United States.
(NHTSA, Economic Impact of
Crashes, 2002)
In 2000, the economic cost to
society was more than $977,000
for each crash fatality and an
average of $1.1 million for each
critically injured person.
(NHTSA, Economic Impact of
Crashes, 2002)
The general public pays near-
ly three-quarters of all crash
costs, primarily through insur-
ance premiums, taxes, delays,
and lost productivity. (NHTSA,
Economic Impact of Crashes.
2002)
With those facts in mind,
here are the final reasons to
wear your safety belt. Florida
State Statues (FSS) requires
that the operator of the vehicle
be restrained by a.safety belt, as
well as others in the vehicles.
So let examine these statues a
little closer.
As you may have noticed I
mentioned that you are being
pulled over for something other
than the seat belt violation.
This is because to date seat belt
violations are not a primary
offense and you can't be pulled
over just for that reason. Please
keep in mind that there are liter-


ally hundreds of reasons (viola-
tions) that you can be pulled
over for. Once on the side of the
road the officer can always give
you a warning for the primary
reason for the stop and issue
you a citation for the seat belt
violation instead.
Let's look at the violations in
more detail because as you may
have guessed there is more than
one statue to cover this issue.
The driver is required by FSS
316.614 (4) (b) to be restrained
by a safety belt (seat belt).
There is a large federal regula-
tion that covers exactly what a
safety belt is, let it be said for
sake of brevity that a factory
installed belt is covered by the
regulation.
Subparagraph (5) of the same
statue says that it is unlawful
for any person 18 years age or
older to be a passenger in the
front seat of a motor vehicle
unless such a person is
restrained by a safety belt when
the vehicle is in motion. These
are non-moving violations cost-
ing $71.50 and no points
against your license and you,
the passenger, receive this cita-
tion.
Passengers under the age of
18 sitting in the vehicle are cov-
ered by FSS 316.614 (4) (a),
this means sitting anywhere in
the vehicle, they must also be
restrained. The driver of the
vehicle is cited when the pas-
sengers are less than 18 years of
age.
Child restraint requirements
are covered under FSS 316.61.3
(1) (a) and states that if the child
is under the age of 5 years of
age or younger, they shall be
provided protection by using a


crash-tested, federally approved
child restraint device. As you go
shopping just look at the boxes
the seats come in or the stick-
ers/labels on the child restraint
devices to see that they meet
federal requirements.
The statue further states that
for children aged through 3
years, such a restraint device
must be a separate carrier or an
integrated child seat. For chil-
dren aged 4 through 5 years, a
separate carrier, an integrated
child seat or a seat belt may be
used. For this section 613 it is a
primary offense and is consid-
ered a moving violation that
costs $115.50 plus three points
on your driver's license.
When you place your child
seat in your vehicle please con-
sider air bags. Children are
safest in the middle of the rear
seat, middle seat for vans/sport
utility vehicles.
It is suggested that if you
want to put the child in the front
do so only if there is a method
to deactivate the passenger air
bag. It is also recommended
that children under the age of


12 not sit in the front passenger
seat because of air bag deploy-
ment concerns.
If you own a pickup truck
you might want to know about
FSS 316.614 (6) (b) which
advises you that the number of
front seat passengers of a pick-
up truck required to wear a
safety belt pursuant to this sec-
tion shall not exceed the num-
ber of safety belts which were
installed in the front seat of
such pickup truck by the manu-
facturer.
I personally am not aware of
any pickups that were manufac-
tured with more than three safe-
ty belts. So keep in mind that if
the officer sees the front or your
truck loaded with passengers,
he is already aware that you are
in violation.
So once again, drive safely
and enjoy your time on the
roadways of Highlands County.

County plans June 1 hurricane seminar


By GARY MIKULECKY
Special to the News-Sun
Are you ready for hurricane
season?
According to Coralie Carson,
Associated Press writer, "Most
residents along the East and
Gulf coasts don't plan to take
even simple steps to protect
themselves and their homes
from hurricanes, despite the
devastation caused by five hur-
ricanes that struck the United
States last year, according to a
new poll." That should alarm
everybody.
When you, your friends and
neighbors aren't prepared for an
emergency it means that some-
body else will be coming to the
rescue. In Highlands County
the government services, utili-
ties and concerned citizens did
a fantastic job of taking care of,
everyone's needs.
Highlands had emergency
shelters prepared ahead of time.
Emergency management had
distribution of ice, water and
food available two to three days
after the hurricanes.
Their burden can be light-
ened next time if everyone pre-
pares. Everyone needs to have
water, food and other supplies
available in their homes for a
minimum of three days. A two
weeks supply is even wiser. The
reason for the three-day mini-
mum is that is how long it could
take to get a large scale emer-
gency, relief effort to be estab-
lished.
Order medications ahead of


time. Have a supply on hand
that will last for several weeks
or longer if possible. If medica-
tions need to be refrigerated,
plan to provide an alternative
such as a cooler with ice.
To prepare your home you
,should anchor, brace, cover and
strap. Anchor, make sure you.
home has a wall-to-foundation
anchoring system. Bring any-
thing inside from your yard that
could be wind blown. Ask your
neighbors to do the same. Brace
garage doors and tracks.
Approximately 80 percent of
residential hurricane wind dam-
age starts with wind entering
through garage doors. Cover all
windows and doors, especially
patio doors, with impact-resist-
ant shutters. Properly caulk all
windows and doors. Strap down
any free-standing fixtures in
your yard.
These, are just a' few
reminders and you will be see-
ing and hearing a lot more in
the months ahead.
If you were in Central
Florida during Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, you
'have made preparations for four
hurricanes. Remember the long
lines at the hardware and food
stores? Get your supplies now.
Are you ready for the next
hurricane? The Atlantic
Hurricane Season is officially
June 1 to Nov. 30. In prepara-
tion for the hurricane season the
National Hurricane Center is
helping to sponsor National
Hurricane Preparedness Week,


which ends Saturday. You can
visit its Web site at
www.nhc.noaa.gov/HAW2/eng-
lish/intro.shtml. It has informa-
tion on hurricane history, haz-
ards, forecasting, preparation
and actions to take.
The "Are You Ready? An In-
Depth Guide to Citizen
Preparedness" has been written
by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency to help
the citizens of this nation learn
how to protect themselves and
their families against all types
of hazards. There is no charge
to take the course online. It can
be used as a reference source or
as a step-by-step manual. The
focus of the content is on how
to develop, practice, and main-
tain emergency ,plans that
reflect what must be done
before, during, and after a dis-
aster to protect people and their
property. Also included is infor-
mation on how to assemble a
disaster supplies kit that con-
tains the food, water, and other
supplies in sufficient quantity
for individuals and their fami-
lies to survive.
There are real benefits to
being prepared, such as the fol-
lowing:
N Being prepared can reduce
fear, anxiety and losses that
accompany disasters.
Communities, families and
individuals should know what
to do in the event of a fire and
where to seek shelter during a
hurricane or tornado. They
should be ready to evacuate


their homes and take refuge in i L L l L* Ii
public shelters and know how
to care for their basic medical |r^& i !t
needs.
People also can reduce the
impact of disasters (flood a -
proofing, elevating a home or'
moving a home out of harm's I
way, and securing items that t
could shake loose in an earth-
quake) and sometimes avoid the ..
danger completely. It is located

SEBRING A problem for
people who either live near or
work on Broadway Street in
Sebring Hills is parking.
Citizens have complained to
the county commission about
too many people parking along
Broadway Street, the frontage
road between the subdivision
and U.S. 27. In clear weather,
vendors often set up a flea mar-
ket atmosphere that creates traf-
fic snarls, especially on the
south end of 'the street at
Sparrow Avenue near the north


entrance to Lakeshore Mall.
County commissioners said
Tuesday that they would not
post "no parking" signs.
However, they will try to get
the Florida Department of
Transportation to help improve
parking along Broadway Street,
and enforce along with state
and local law enforcement -
the rules against parking on the
right of way.
The vendors bringing in traf-
fic are illegal, Commissioner
Edgar Stokes said, but that's not
the biggest problem.
Since the Department of


Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles has closed its Lake
Placid office, everyone in the
county must go to Sebring to
get their licenses renewed. The
building on Broadway Street is
small with very little paved
parking. Most visitors park
along the road.
Stokes said it would be good
for DHSMV to either reopen
the Lake Placid station or find a
place with better parking for the
Sebring office.
County staff will also
research the matter further.,

Devils, Dragons wrap up spring tonight


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
Spring football is all about learning.
For the Avon Park Red Devils, this
spring has been about learning a new
defense and a new dimension to their
offense. For the Lake Placid Green
Dragons, it has been about learning a
new attitude, particularly on defense.
Both the Devils and Dragons will
wrap up their spring workouts tonight
with games Lake Placid hosting
Okeechobee at 7 p.m. and Avon Park
hosting Crescent City at 7:30 p.m. The
Sebring Blue Streaks' spring game is
Saturday at 7 p.m. in Mulberry.
Lake Placid coach Shaw Maddox said
that the Dragons have had a good spring
session and that the fruits of his players'
labors since he took over a year ago are
starting to show.
S"The kids have been in a real weight
program for a year. We're much more


athletic and the attitudes are a lot better,"
he said. "It's a completely different atti-
tude than what I inherited when I came
here. Now, these are my young'uns.
They're not somebody else's by-prod-
uct. They've been with me for a year and
they know what I want and understand
what I want.
"I've raised their expectations, now
we've just got to raise the expectations
of the community and get folks expect-
ing us to win because that's what we
expect to do."
Defense has been the key word this
spring, Maddox said, after the Dragons
struggled last fall.
"We have stressed defense and being
physical the whole spring. We've only
run offense three days so we expect to be
a little ragged on offense (tonight), but
we expect tobe much, much improved
on defense."'
Maddox spent three days observing


practices at Lownds County High
School in Valdosta, Ga., learning how
coach Randy McPherson runs his
defense, and he and his assistants have
been busy transferring that knowledge to
the players.
"We're expecting to be much better
on defense and much more aggressive,"
Maddox said. "Randy was the head
coach at Madison (County) and won
state three out of four years and went to
Lownds County and won the 6A'state
championship in Georgia, so he's a pret-
ty good football coach."
In Avon Park, coach T.C. Cousins'
Red Devils have installed a new defense
- switching from a 4-3 to a 3-5 and
added a tight end to their spread offense.
"The kids have worked hard and got-
ten better, so (the spring) has been good
for us," Cousins said. "We have every-
thing in: We're about ready to go. We
just want to go out and play well and see

Anderson will .someday look
back at this week's Florida
Athletic Coaches Association
All-Star game and laugh.
After all, the senior from
Seffner-Armwood probably
turned himself into a first-
round- pick in under seven
seconds. .
:'He'll look upon his beefier
stash of money remember
how convenient at time it was
to run a 6.1 in the 60-yard
dash.
"I still don't think the
scouts believe it," said Dave
Fore, a scout for the
Southwest Florida summer
ball team, after Anderson's
performance in the 60-yard
dash. "I mean, the kid comes
out here and runs a 6.1 (sec-


onds) and a scout for the
Rockies said he had never
seen it before."
Fore has been attending the
All-Star Classic for seven
years, recruiting Sebring
players like Jay Belflower
and Ronnie Handley, and said
that even he was surprised.
Due to stopwatch differen-
ti!ls, Anderson's time ranged
. from aas ..low-,as 6.08, and&
: peaked at 6.2 flat.
His eye-popping perform-
ance barely edged Fort
Meade's Andrew McCutchen,
whose time of 6.24 was more
,anticipated than any other on
the field. McCutchen was a
preseason All-American with
the Miners, and followed up
with a .709 batting average
with 16 home runs and 42

SEBRING Meet Ryan
Williams and Kiko Vazquez.
Two seniors whose star-
dom at Sebring could, and did
at times, make others oppos-
ing them look witless.
Not that you probably
haven't already, but it would
behoove you to introduce
yourself while their availabil-
ity lasts. Soon the pair will be
loaded with time trials and
measurements in preparation
for the pro baseball draft.
That's the plan anyway.
Well-crafted r6sumes com-
piled over the past few years
would indicate such attention
is on its way.


Vazquez walked 41 times
during the regular season and
still managed to lead Sebring
with a career-high nine home
runs, while Williams hit six
homers and led the team in
batting average (.380) and
runs (29).
They consider themselves
best of friends, and their long
history together supports it.
The duo has received
national and statewide scout-
ing attention thanks to their
performance on (and off) the
field, and have managed to
find a way to stay together,
both signing full rides with

AVON PARK As it turns out, their eight-run
first inning would not have been enough.
Yet luckily for the Cardinals, they didn't stop
scoring, and tacked on one run in the second,
three in the third and three in the fifth to hold off
the Orioles 15-9 in Avon Park Dixie Youth
Majors action on Thursday.
Lane Crosson led the way, going 3-for-3 with
a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored. He was the

Youth Softball

Firemen come back to beat Big John's


By DANIEL BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Sometimes rules can help you.
Sometimes, however, they can just be annoy-
ing.
Big John's Garage (playing with only eight
players) found that out in a 12-5 loss to the
Sebring Firemen (playing with 13 players) in
youth softball action Thursday evening at the
Max Long Recreation Complex.
Big John's was looking for its first win and,
through the top of the third, it was looking as if
they might have -a chance at getting rid of that
goose egg as they were tied 5-5.
Unfortunately for Big John's, league rules
allow a pitcher to only pitch three innings in a
game, which forced them to pull their starting
pitcher and ended up taking away any chance of
winning as the Firemen (12-3) took full advan-
tage, drawing 11 walks in the last two innings.
The game started well for both teams. Big
John's Laura Tenneson drew a walk and then
stole home. Peyton Todd singled and then stole
honie as well. Kaylen Fort then came up and'
whacked an inside-the-park homer to give her
team a 3-0 lead.
Kelsey Tucker wasn't about to see her team
go down, though, as she hit an inside-the-park
grand slam that brought in Kaylee Tuck, Jaye
Whitehead and Madison Rose. Lexie Freeland
was then automatically scored after being
walked and then left. on base after her team
went through eight hitters, a new league rule,
putting the Firemen up 5-3.
In the top of the third inning Raven Crawford
led off with a single and then was brought home
on a Kaylen Fort triple to left-center field that
tied the game up for Big John's.
The bottom of the third saw the Firemen
draw five walks as Madison Rose and Emily
Rose started the inning off on walks and then
scored stealing home and on an error, respec-
tively. Shaylan Beatty got on base after an error
and was followed by Lindsey Lovett and Katie
Andrews, who both walked.
They were again left on base when the max-
imum number of hitters had come to the plate
and automatically scored, putting the Firemen
ahead 10-5 and the fourth was much of the
same for the Firemen.
Hancock Citrus 8
Sertoma 7
It was a barn-burner as league-leading
Hancock Citrus took on Sertoma on Thursday.
Katlyn Ostrander of Sertoma hit a grand slam
in the bottom of the fourth inning to.bring in
Megan Darr, Brittanie Augustine and Ashley
Bailey, edging Sertoma to within one run, but
time ran out on and they couldn't get any clos-
er in an 8-7 Hancock win.
The win put Hancock at 14-1 on the year
while Sertoma fell to 3-8-1.

Madison Rose of the Firemen winds up for a
pitch on Thursday.


In the first inning, Hancock's Crystal
Grimaldo and Dino Lower both walked and
scored on an Amanda Grimaldo double.
Grimaldo then scored when Erin McGlinchey
hit another double. Sertoma picked away at
Hancock's lead when Darr walked and.then
stole home in the bottom of the first.
Hancock racked up five runs to jump to an 8-
1 lead in the third. Crystal Grimaldo drew a
walk and then scored when Haley Pack singled.
Pack scored on a triple by Amanda Grimaldo,
who scored off of a Lauren Welborn single.
McGlinchey then singled to bring in Welborn
and finally McGlinchey herself was walked
home.
Bailey drew a walk in the fourth for Sertoma
and then stole home to make the score 8-2 and,
in the fifth, Kaylena Rogers started off the
inning by walking to get on, and then walked
home before Ostrander hit her big grand slam
Pack finished with five strikeouts and five
walks while only allowing one hit for Hancock.

STREAKS
Continued from 1B
Florida.
It's fitting, given the fact
they spent virtually their entire
baseball lives together, starting
in Dixie Youth as teammates.
Both were selected to this
weekend's FACA All-Star
game at Firemen's Field, join-
ing the who's who list of elite
Florida high school baseball
players.
"I feel like I've been doing
pretty good. There's a lot of tal-
ent out here," Williams said
Thursday. "It's just mostly get-
ting to know everyone out here.
It's fun seeing how you place
yourself with everybody."
"A lot of these kids I already
know. Most of them I've
played with in AAU and stuff,"
Vazquez said. "This is the same
game, just better competition,
just gotta step it up."
"(Kiko) plays with like 19
teams over the summer, so he
already knows everybody,"
Williams added.
They plan on rooming
together at Central Florida, but
to the naked eye, however, it
seems hard to believe the two
are anything alike.
On the outside, Vazquez's 6-
foot-3, 230-pound frame 'is
hard to miss. The 200-pound
Williams, on the other hand, is
sometimes too quiet to be
noticed, even in a small crowd.
Soft-spoken and often heard
giving credit to his teammates
after a win, the shortstop is usu-
ally explains the victory was a
direct product of having fun
while playing the game.
At the beginning of the year,
the meaty first baseman was
elected 11th best at his position
nationwide and the 133rd rated
prospect overall, according to
teamonebaseball.com.
Consecutive six-home run
seasons are getting Williams up
there, too.
At the foot of Vazquez's cor-
ner locker in theSebring's field
house are about 15 assorted
bats at his disposal, as if he has
an answer for any pitch.
Williams usually needs just
one.
They agree on a lot of things,
though, including what they
- consider to be the best moment
during high school: playing
along side their younger broth-
ers on varsity. Both had the
privilege this year when
Williams' brother, Colt, was
Sebring's starting second base-
man and Vazquez's .kin, Tony,
started at third base when Chaz
Abeln was on the mound.
And to tie everything up
with a neat little bow, Williams
and Vazquez were called upon
to race side-by-side when it
came time for the 60-yard dash
Thursday in front of the scouts.
Williams finished at 6.8 while
Vazquez timed at 7.4.
"I thought the numbers
would be faster," Vazquez
said.
"It was fun," Williams said.
"I'd rather go against each
other than someone else."
Ofcourse, Vazquez agrees.

"All of the talent out here is

In the fourth, Jarviel Hart

sliced in half.
Yet the Cardinals (6-3),
sparked by an RBI double from

Crosson later scored on a

East team, and is the first coach
from the Heartland area to be
elected to the position since
1983 (Avon Park's Ronnie
Jackson) after a successful sea-
son with the Wildcats. Most of
the voting for that specific posi-
tion comes from the east coast
area and Rewis said he was a
little surprised to hear he had
been picked, but satisfied that
coaches are starting to take
notice to the progress his pro-
gram is making.
"It's more of a representation
of this area than just an individ-
ual honor," he said. "The fact
that the coaches from this area
are the ones that nominate is
nice and they recognize the
progress (Hardee) is making."-

Eight consecutive Brave bat-
ters reached base and scored in

job, Rewis will head coach of
the East team next year as part
of a two-year process the FACA
uses to get the coaches accom-
modated to All-Star procedures.
"So far, the biggest excite-
ment is seeing people I played
for in high school and college,"
Rewis said. "The men that I
played for that pretty much
molded the way I coach and the
way I played. It's good to shake
their hand and thank them and
hopefully make them proud."

Gunnar Westergom's two-out,
two-strike single was followed
by a wild pitch and an error in
the top of the sixth to put the
tying run on third for the Elks.
But Westergom was nailed at
the plate for the final out trying
to score on another wild pitch.
The Elks (8-3) opened the
game with a 3-0 lead after Kyle
Cunningham's two-run triple
and a wild pitch that scored
Cunningham, but the Firemen
came roaring right back with
seven runs in the bottom of the
inning.
Lewis, who led off the inning
with a double, later hit a two-
run single to key the inning,
which saw Firemen No. 3 hitter
Kyler Hodge intentionally
walked twice.
The Elks scored two runs
without a hit in the top of the
second to pull to within 7-5,
then added four runs on
Westergom's RBI double, a
run-scoring groundout by Justin
Long and a two-run error for a

answered with three runs in the
bottom of the inning, getting
RBIs from Justin Acevedo and
Dane Maddox, to retake the
lead 10-9, only to have
Cunningham double and score
on Alex Baldridge's sacrifice
fly in the top of the fourth to
make it 10-10.
Five hits by the Firemen -
including RBI doubles from

Corbin Hoffner threw a
three-hit shutout and gave him-
self all the run support he

homer as the Lions stayed in
first place with a 4-0 win over
Bayview on Tuesday.
The game was scoreless after
four innings as Hoffner and
Aaron Hart had a pitchers' duel,
but a Matthew Grubb single in
the top of the fifth set the stage
for Hoffner's blast into the
parking lot for a 2-0 lead.
Johnny Vega reached on an

singled home Basulto to give
the Lions two insurance runs in

Elderly placed

on 'sucker list'
As our society ages, many
will fall victim to numerous
scams where their names will
be placed on the "sucker list"
or placed in the "recovery
rooms" visited by "Nortay
Consultants" with offers of
help from Fraudulent Action
Network or offered protec-
tion from Senior Citizens
Against Telemarketers or get
a call from Helping Elderly
Live Protected. If you
receive any of these calls,
run like a bat out of hell and
report the matter to the
Attorney General in your
state of residence.
They are all individuals
with bogus corporations.
aimed at defrauding and
abusing unsuspecting elderly
with massive schemes.
Sucker list The
names, addresses, phone
numbers, how much many of
you lost as a "suckered elder-
ly" appears on this list.
"Sucker lists" are bought and
sold by heartless conniving
individuals masquerading as
legitimate business.
Recovery rooms -
This is no hospital. Never
enterthis room. This a
scheme where telemarketers
call you on the phone offer-
ing sympathy while making
reference to a victim's latest
fraud, falsely offering to
recover the lost money if the
victim donates a fee of 10-20
percent of the money they
had lost to a specific cause.
Nortay consultants are
merely telemarketers making
false promises under the pre-
tense that they are advocates
who had acquired informa-
ion on the crime committed
against the elderly victim.
These victims are advised
that for a down payment fee
of 20 percent of the money
lost they will recover the lost
cash. One report stated that
$481,868 from more than
100 victims were swindled.
H.E.L.P., which is a
phony law company, calls
victims promising to help
recover money, or luxury
cars they have won in a
sweepstakes, while telling
the victims to send prepay- ,
ment of up to $2,000. If
skepticism is suspected, the
phone number of the Better
Business Bureau is given.
This is not the Better
Business Bureau, but a
phony, a mere computer, pro-
grammed to fool unsuspect-
ing victims, The name of a
fake lawyer also is given.

defrauded previously,
informing them that they are
collaborating with govern-

This is the first of a two-part
story about the United States
'Sugar Corporation. This story,
focuses on the sugar industry of
the company, while in Sunday's
issue will be about the citrus
aspect of the business.
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
CLEWISTON United
States Sugar Corporation is one
of America's premier privately
held agribusiness companies.
With state-of the art technol-
ogy for both sugar refining and
Citrus processing, U.S. Sugar
practices the most efficient and
progressive farming techniques
available in the world, while
meeting the highest standards
for worker safety, food quality
and. environmental protection.
The company is headquartered
in Clewiston, .and farms
196,000 acres in Hendry,
Glades and Palm Beach coun-
ties,.
"With over 2,100 employees,
U.S. Sugar is the country's
largest producer of sugar cane
and cane sugar,'and is one of
Florida's major producers of
oranges and orange juice prod-
ucts. -It also owns a short line
Railroadd" Judy Sanchez, direc-
tor:of corporate communication
said.
C.S. Mott founded U.S.
Sugar in 1931. He was then one
of the principal shareholders of


General Motors. Today, sub-
stantially all of the company is
owned by its employees and
charitable foundations created
by heirs of the original owners.
Employees are the largest
shareholder group through an
Employee Stock Ownership
Plan, and the company ranks
among the top 50 refineries
capable of producing more than
600,000 tons of refined sugar
products annually.
The company operates two
mills with the capacity to grind
up to 45,000 tons of sugar cane
each day during the six-month
harvest season. One mill, the
SClewiston Sugar House is the
largest sugar cane processing
facility in the United States.
In October 1998, U.S. Sugar
Officially opened its Clewiston
refinery, the first new cane
sugar refinery to be built in the
United States in more than 25
years. Adjacent to U.S. Sugar's
Clewiston mill, this facility is
the first fully integrated cane
sugar refinery in the country,
with a capacity of 2,100 tons
per day. Refining operations
include the production, packag-
ing, and warehousing of a wide
spectrum of sugar products -
from small retail bags to rail-
cars of refined sugar and
tankers of liquid sugar.
The refinery is powered by
natural, renewable power -
electricity and steam generated


at the raw mill from bagasse
(dried cane fiber remaining
from the milling process.)

How sugar is made
Sanchez said sugar cane is a
giant grass with a 12-15 month
growing season, yielding three
to four successive crops before.
it has to be replanted.
Mechanical harvesters cut the
stalks into foot-long lengths and
harvest it.
In the fields, the cane is
transferred to nearby rail cars,
which transport the cane to the
mills. Each railcar full of sugar
cane weighs approximately 40
tons. The cars are hydraulically
tilted and opened on one side,
dumping the cane onto the con-
neying system. About 1,100
cars are unloaded every 24
houor atthe t\%o mill;
The cane is sent,to a series of
mills where it is crushed and the
juice extracted. The spgar cane
juice, which has a pH of
approximately 5.5, is treated
with lime and heated to the
boiling point. The main purpose
of liming is to neutralize the
acidity and to prevent inversion
of sucrose.
The combined effect of heat
and lime is the formation of a
heavy precipitate of complex
composition. The separation of
this precipitate from the clear
juice is accomplished by con-
tinuous decantation in large
tanks called clarifiers.
The clarified juice contains
about 85 percent water. Most of
this water is removed in steam-
heated multiple effect evapora-
tors operating under a vacuum.
The product from the evapora-
tion station is a high-density
fluid called syrup.
The crystallization of sucrose
(sugar) out of syrup or molasses
is carried out in large vessels
operated under a vacuum,
called vacuum pans. The first
step in sugar boiling is seeding.
The mixture of sugar crystals
and syrup or molasses is called
massecuite. Sugar boiling is a
complex art that requires an
individual with unique skills
and experience.
The crystallization process is
continued in the crystallizers
where the massecuite is cured
by slow cooling and stirring for


A sugar mill employee checks the sugar crystals as the sucrose
bonds to them.


a period of 36 hours. This
process increases the recovery
of sucrose from the molasses.
Sanchez explained, the next
step in sugar manufacturing is
the initial separation of sugar
crystals from molasses. This is
accomplished by centrifugal
force in batch or continuous
machines called centrifugals.
Basically, a centrifugal consists
of a drum covered with a fine
screen rotating at high speed
(1,200 rpms) on its vertical
axis. The molasses is forced
through the screen producing a
pre-refined sugar stock.
In the refinery, liquefied
sugar is forced through granular
carbon filters that remove the
amber. The sugar liquid then
moves through triple effect
evaporators that remove water,
creating a mixture that is 76
percent solid.
Next, the sugar is piped to
pressure filters where any
remaining impurities are
removed. Then the sugar moves
into vacuum pans for crystal-
lization. When the crystals
reach the desired size, they are
dropped into centrifugals.
The centrifugals separate the
crystals from any remaining liq-
uid. The slightly damp crystals
are moved to the dryer. The


dryer is a moving bed of sugar
and air in which the sugar is cir-
culated over baffles and dried.
A series of portholes allow the
waves of sugar to be viewed as
they move through the dryer.
Bucket elevators-transfer the
sugar to conditioning silos,
where it is further dried in con-
ditioned, dehumidified air for
24 hours, Sanchez said. Then
it's transferred to a screening
tower, a series of graduated
screens that separate the sugar
into various sizes of granules,
tailored to each customer's
specifications.,
Next it's stored in bins,
according to crystal size and
transferred by screw conveyors
to bulk shipping or the packag-
ing area, Bulk sugar is loaded
into 200,000-pound, sanitized,
food-grade railroad cars for
transport to food processing
companies who make candy
bars, cakes, cereals, etc.
In the packaging area,
machines package the sugar in
two-, four-, five-, or 10-pound
bags for consumers and in 25-,
50- and 100-pound bags for

Christ takes sting out of our goodbyes


When someone lifts his
hands it can be a sad thing. It
can mean he is saying goodbye.
Many a family sadly remem-
bers the raised hand of their
proud son or daughter, as they
went off to serve his nation in
war, never to return. Family and
friends feel sadness as they
watch the raised hands of a mis-
sionary and his family heading
to another part of the world to
serve their Lord. Grandma and
Grandpa realize sadly that they
may never see that missionary
family's hands raised to say
hello again. Goodbyes, in what-
ever form they take, are sad.
Note the unique farewell of
Jesus. "While he was blessing
them, he left them and was
taken up into heaven." (Luke
24:51) Our Savior raised his
hands as he ascended into heav-
en, but those hands were not
raised to wave goodbye. Those
hands were raised to continue
his blessing. Christ's blessing
on. us did not cease when he
began to ascend. It did not
cease when he was seated at the
Father's right hand. Christ's
blessing on us will never cease.
While other leave and leave us
lonely, Christ leaves and leaves
us blessed. Here's why.
First of all, Christ's ascen-
sion must never be considered
as his departure. Jesus did not
ascend to leave us. He has
ascended to fill everything in

I YrU I r r U


every way. Christ
will be with us
always. He will ,nce, l
leave us. or fo.iske r .
us. Christ doet n .ot
live physical], on
earth now, but he
does much more. He
lives in us and
guides, encourages
and rules us through A M
his Word.
Don't worry, for WIT
you will never see
Jesus raise his hands Rev.
and wave goodbye to
you. That will never
happen, because he
loves you too much. Than can
never happen because he is too
powerful to let it happen.
Ascension is no farewell, for
nothing will be able to separate
us from the love of Christ.
If we continue to read the
Gospel of Luke we find that the
disciples returned to Jerusalem
with great joy. Where did this
joy come from?,
Some of this jby must have
Been joy for Jesus. Those nail
holes are scars hdw. The cross
is in the pist. The suffering is
over. The battle is won. Christ
humbled himself even to the
point of dying on the cross for
our sins. He became sin for us.
But now all thatIis over. Now as
he ascends to the right hand of
God he will be'given a name


-HGoD

Richard
yffee


above every name.
Notice though that
their joy for him did
not take the forin of a
"way to go," but a
way of life. They did-
n't just cheer for him:
they worshiped him.
This joy they felt is a
unique joy of the
Christian-the joy of
salvation. Christ has
won our forgiveness.
Christ is preparing a
place for us in heav-
en.
In fact, Christ has


taken the sting out of
many of our goodbyes. Let's go
back again to the beginning of
our devotion. The family that
lost a son in war will see him
again, for he had the same
Savior as they. Grandma and
Grandpa will not see that mis-
sionary family in time, but they
will enjoy them for all eternity.
Jesus Christ did not wave good-
bye as he ascended. He went to
prepare place for us. He takes
the sting out of all our Christian
goodbyes.

tor with New Life Evangelical
Lutheran Church, 3725
Hammock Road, Sebring. He

most insidious of all white col-

today's modern high tech con-

'Kicking and Screaming' kicks


off summer's kids' sports movies


'Kicking' is bolstered by
bona-fide star Robert
Duvall, by Mike Ditka's
mercurial presence and
by Will Farrell's wide-
eyed goofiness
By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
"Kicking and Screaming" is the movie
that dares to imagine what might have hap-
pened if Buddy the Elf had been raised by a
soccer dad instead of Santa Claus.
Will Ferrell returns to the family-friend-
ly genre as an athletically challenged super-
dufus with a heart of gold and a competitive
father who thinks of himself as the big
wheeler at the monster truck rally.
At' an early age, Phil (Ferrell), a clumsy
kid, gets thrust into sports to please Buck
(Robert Duvall), the king of sporting goods
outlets. Even though Phil has no aptitude
for manly contests, he's not bitter OK,
he's a little bitter but mainly he's the pup
who wants papa dog's approval.
That never happens because Buck com-
petes with his son in every arena. When
Phil gets engaged to a pretty college co-ed,
Buck brings home a sexier young wife.
When Phil becomes a father to a son, so
does Buck.
As the boys grow, the rivalry between
Phil and Buck spirals out of control. Buck,
a little league soccer coach to his second
son Bucky, trades grandson Sam to the
Tigers the soccer equivalent of the Bad
News Bears and Phil throws himself into
thankless job of being the team coach.
It's supposed to be an opportunity for
Phil and Buck to work out their dysfunc-
tional relationship and for Phil and Sam
have some father-son bonding time as they
turn a inept band of losers into a hot com-
modity.
Phil has little more to offer than enthusi-
asm he knows nothing about soccer so
he looks for help in the one man who hates
his father more than he does: Buck's next-
door neighbor, football coaching legend
Mike Ditka. The older gents have their own
rivalry going over who's going to be the
big dog of the neighborhood and Ditka is
eager to squash Buck like a bug.
You can't say "Kicking and Screaming"
is an original concept, since this summer
- will see half as many kids' sports pictures

The Tigers get soccer tips from Phil (Will Ferrell) and Mike Ditka in 'Kicking and
Screaming.'


as the entire "Star Wars" saga. On July 1
Martin Lawrence comes to theaters in
"Rebound," about a hot-headed major
league basketball coach who gets bumped
down to junior varsity, and on July 22 Billy
Bob Thornton takes a swing at the most
famous kids' baseball movies of all time in
a remake of "The Bad News Bears."
Incidentally, whether "Rebound" and
"Bears" find an audience will to some
degree depend on "Kicking and
Screaming." If viewers like it, they may go
.back for more, and if they don't they may
skip the other two altogether.
The outlook is not promising. "Kicking"
is bolstered by bona-fide star Duvall, by
Ditka's mercurial presence and by Farrell's
wide-eyed goofiness, although his trade-
mark shtick is wearing thin.
The Tigers are an unextraordinary pack,
and few distinguish themselves or get the
chance to. You might even have trouble
keeping track of Phil's son Sam if
"Kicking" didn't keep reminding you.they
were related.
The sports action is so-so until two
young Italians bring their phenomenal
skills into play. Francesco Liotti and
Alessandro Ruggiero are the one bright
spot in this mundane movie fascinating
players and likable actors. Quite honestly,
this movie could,have used more real kid
charm and less of Farrell's fake child-like
enthusiasm.


'KICKING AND SCREAMING'
Director: Jesse Dyland
Writers: Leo, Benvenuti, Steve Rudnick and
Jim Miller
Cast: Will Ferrell (Phil), Robert Duvall
(Buck), Mike Ditka (as himself), Kate Walsh
(Barbara), Dylan McLaughlin (Sam),
Francesco Liotti (Gian Piero) and Alessandro
Ruggiero (Massimo)
Released by: Universal Pictures (2005)
Running time: 1 hour, 36 minutes
Rated: PG for thematic elements, language
and some crude humor
Now Playing: Carmike Cinema 8 in
Lakeshore Mall, Sebring; 471-1179

The message is a bit dicey. Some charac-
ters eventually kiss and make up and you
know who they are going to be but the
Tigers and the audience never learn much
from the experience.
That makes "Kicking and Screaming"
much like a real-life little league game. You
will enjoy it if you happen to know and
love some of the players, but it's a lot to
endure.
