Family escapes house fire



early Saturday morning


By JARRETT BAKER
News-Sun
SEBRING Battery-powered drills are handy, except
when believed to be the cause of a devastating house fire.
Lieutenant Brandon Ball of the State Fire Marshal's
office said the fire that destroyed Bob and Leslie Brewer's
home at 4113 Eiland Drive around 3 a.m. Saturday started
in the garage. He cited the cause of the fire as accidental.
The Brewer's son, Hunter, 23, was more specific, saying
he belie\ es a cordless-drill charger started the fire.
Bob Brewer i- the-Avon Park High School band director
and Leslie w works in the day care at Grace Brethren Church
in Sebrinm.


The family was in Lakeland Friday night for a rodeo and
went to bed about 45 minutes before the fire started. Along
with the Brewers, their children, Shea, 17, Morgan, 16, and
Paige, 14, their grandmother, Martha Stokes, and friends of
their children, Michael Moreno, 17, and Jesse Eller, 15,
were in the house when it caught fire. None of the occu-
pants could remember what alerted them to the blaze, but
everyone, including the guinea pig, escaped unscathed.
"The house was full of smoke," Moreno said.
"it was a hot fire," Morgan Brewer added.
Mhlreno dialed 911 on his cell phone around 3 a.rn:as he-"
escaped.

absconders


located

Six others still missing
from Highlands
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A month-long statewide
effort to locate people on Florida's sexual
offender and predator registry who disap-
peared has uncovered 537 in hiding, and
arrested 203 of them.
The remaining 334 were either dead,
deported, incarcerated, no longer living in
Florida, or found registered according to the
law. It was part of the statewide Sexual
Offender Apprehension Program focused on
locating sexual offenders and predators who
had fled to hide, arresting those who were
non-compliant, and verifying the where-
abouts of many others.
Highlands County had 10 people miss-
ing. Three moved to other states and a
fourth was found and arrested in Texas. The
other six still have warrants pending either
through the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement or the local probation and
parole board.
Among the local missing, officers found
Jeffrey Keith Adams in California, Keith
Baretis in New Hampshire and Mark Buhler
in Colorado. Detective Tom Ouverson,
along with other members of the sheriff's
office crime scene unit, a part of the crimi-
nal investigations division, work daily to
check on the whereabouts of local sexual
offenders or predators. This program helped
them find the ones who were missing.
"FDLE tracked them down for us. (The
three) were registered in other states. We
-weren't notified." Ouverson said.

Advanced academics proposal presented to board


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING A dedicated group of

parents, teachers, administration offi-
cials, and elementary school principals
gathered Tuesday afternoon to lobby
The School Board of Highlands County
for the new program of advanced aca-
demics, they hope will be instituted in
every county elementary school this fall.
The program's plan, two years in the
making, was presented by the three peo-
ple who have been most involved in the
project, although they made it clear they
were only three among many.


Diane Juve, a concerned parent who
has been a leader in the development of
the program, Diane Lethbridge, princi-
pal of Sun 'N Lake Elementary School,
and Dr. Richard Demeri, principal of
Cracker Trail Elementary School, all
spoke before the board, and were inter-
rupted by applause.
The plan was designed to be econom-
ical, its creators say, and it focuses on the
fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, but
includes provisions for all elementary
grades. It depends on the district assign-
ing an advanced academics resource
teacher to each elementary school. This


means the district would have to allocate
four and a half new teachers to the pro-
gram.
The teachers would be responsible for
identifying potential students, as well as
helping classroom teachers devise more
challenging curricula for the advanced
students in their classes, and they would
model and mentor as well.
Advanced academic teachers also
would provide additional projects and
curriculum enhancements in a resource
room setting, working with students
identified as advanced and grouped
accordingly.


The advanced academic teachers,
would therefore spend equal amounts of
time identifying students and enriching
their study.
The goal is to offer in-depth, complex
assignments, grown out of the school's
core curriculum, which better challenge
students, and develop higher order
thinking skills so they can compete with
students from larger districts.
All eight elementary principals are
enthusiastic about the program, and have
already made space at their schools to
accommodate it.

Humane

Society offers
reward for
stolen dogs
SEBRING Thefts of
dogs from the Humane
Society of Highlands
County shelter in Sebring
have prompted the non-
profit organization to offer
a reward for information
leading to the arrest and
conviction of the perpetra-
tors of the crimes.
In the past week,
"Elvis," a white male bull
terrier mix, and "Marlin ,.-a
young white and black pit
;bull temer/houndili'i'' "'
were stolen at night from
their cages in the Humane
Society compound.
The dogs are both affec-
tionate, friendly animals
and the Humane Society
fears that
they will
be used
as bait to
train pit
bulls for
illegal
fighting.
MARLIN "They
muzzle
the bait
dogs and
allow the
fighting
a- dogs to
.. attack
them. It's
*^ a horrible
ELVIS to think of
what might
be happening to these
sweet animals," said
Marvene McPhee, Humane
Society board president.
"Our first priority is to get
them back safe and
unharmed."
The sheriff's office and
the Humane Society have
established additional secu-
rity measures to help pre-
vent further break-ins.
Anyone with information
about the dogs is urged to
call the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office at 402-
7200.

SEBRING Tuesday
evening The School Board of
Highlands County hosted a
farewell celebration for 30
school district employees who
leave with a collective 692
years of experience between
them.
It was what Chairman Wally
Randall called a sad, happy
moment.
Some of the newly retired
teachers had plans for more of
the same.
"I'm not quite finished, I'm
subbing," Jacqueline Anderson
said. She just retired from
Woodlawn Elementary where
she taught for 20 years. In all,
she's spent 35 years in the
classroom.


Firewise


Ferdinand Stagg is another
retiree who has already come
out of retirement. No sooner did
he kick back into retirement last
January, then the driver short-
age pulled him back on the
road. Like Anderson, he's sub-
bing.
Many of the retirees had
plans to travel, and more than
one was heading to North
Carolina. "With all the other
Floridians," laughed Pat Noel,
an area supervisor in the trans-
portation department. She is
retiring after 18 years with the
school district.
SDorothy Howard, another
bus driver retiring after 18
years, loved her work, but knew
it was time to start to relax
when children she had driven to


community


school, were now becoming bus
drivers themselves.
Each retiree received an
engraved table clock, all the
better to laugh early in the
morning.
Those retiring and the
schools they are retiring from
are:
Avon Elementary School:
Sharon Smith (1973-2005);
Avon Park Middle School:
Robert Davidson (1972-2005)

Crutchfield sells 100 acres

at U.S. 27/State Road 66


By PHIL ATnNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The
Crutchfield family has sold 100
acres of grove land on the cor-
ner of U.S. 27 and State Road
66 to an out-of-county develop-
er.
The land sold May 13 for
$5.3 million to Merritt Realty
Inc. of Fort Pierce. The exact
plans for the property aren't
known yet, said Terri Lynn
Crutchfield .of TLC Realty of
Central Florida Inc., who repre-
sented the family in the sale.
Representatives for Ed
Merritt, the'buyer and develop-
er, told the News-Sun they
would announce their plans
within a week. Crutchfield said


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Bill Sayles, president of the Placid Lakes Home and Property Owners Association, discusses the
Firewise program at a general membership meeting in the town hall on Monday night. Placid
Lakes has been named a Firewise community by the state of Florida because of efforts made by
the community to prevent wildfires.



Public safety has maps of new


street names; public still waiting


By PHIL ATnNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING As street
names and address numbers
change all over Highlands
County, updated maps are still
on order.
911 Communications
Coordinator Ben Henley said
all of the county information on
changed names has been sent to
Rand McNally and the area
chambers of commerce.
Yahoo.com had 50 percent'\of
the streets a couple of months
ago, he said, but he's been told
Yahoo had a street name wrong.
MapQuest.com picked up on it,
too, he said.
Dan Andrews, executive
director of the Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce, said
their maps are being printed and
expected to be delivered in two
weeks.
Local organizations can
download the new street infor-
mation from the Highlands
County Web site or ask staff at
the Emergency Operations
Center for a CD-ROM. As for
handing out information proac-
tively, "we don't do that,"


Henley said.
It's a time and money ques-
tion, of course, but he would
not want to miss a map compa-
ny or local agency by accident.
Most public safety agencies,
however, already have map
books that cross-reference the
old and new streets. Each book
costs $21. Each page holds a
four-mile-square map. Some of
the newer books have maps
broken down to one square mile
for the municipalities. Those
will be ready by early June,.
Henley figures, just in time for
the hurricane season.
One of the main concerns
about the new street names was
the amount of time it would
take to educate emergency per-
sonnel on new street names.
Henley said most agencies have
the books now and are studying
them.
When the next hurricane hits
Highlands County, he said, the
county should be able to simply
hand over copies of the map
books to visiting agencies and
power companies. They can
find their way with those and
help from radio dispatchers and


all the new road signs.
When will all the new signs
be up? County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said all the county-
maintained road signs should
be up in two weeks. The county
commission just approved
redoing the signs on non-coun-
ty maintained roads and private
roads, such as those within
mobile home parks. That
should take another two or three
months, he said.
Henley's still finding some
streets with double names -
where residents have posted the
old name over, under or beside
the new street signs.


Friday she could not comment
yet on the final plans for.the
property. Right now, that corer
of the U.S. 27 and S.R. 66/U.S.
98 junction is the only one not
developed.
Local leasing will be handled
by her through TLC Realty.
National accounts would be
handled by Merritt. She was
still working with the buyer to
iron out details of the sale.
The corer 20 acres is zoned
commercial. Crutchfield said
the rest is zoned industrial, but
there is an application with
Highlands County Planning
Department to rezone the rest
commercial. That is one of the
remaining details, Crutchfield
said.

CHECKPOINTS


SEBRING Officers of the

be conducting a
Comprehensive Roadside
Safety Checkpoint Friday in
one of the following locations
within the city limits of.
Sebring:
State Road 17 near Towne
Square Shopping Center
Kenilworth Boulevard
near Orange Blossom Avenue.
U.S. 27 South north of
Highlands Avenue.
The purpose of this check-
point is not only to detect and
apprehend alcohol and drug
impaired drivers, but also to


increase the public awareness
of the driving under the influ-
ence problem, to use good judg-
ment and moderation when
planning to drive and to encour-
age persons who consume alco-
holic beverages to seek and
choose alternative methods of
transportation rather than driv-
ing themselves. In addition, the
Sebring Police Department also
will be enforcing state laws
governing the use of traffic
safety belts, child restraints and
driver license laws.

of the residence to a waiting
vehicle, and force her in it.
She was located Monday,
May 16, by the Lake Wales
Police Department on a misde-
meanor traffic offense warrant.
She told police Hawthorne
entered her house while she was
sleeping, then hit her in the
face, breaking her jaw. After
that, he forced her out of the
home into a waiting vehicle,
pulling her by her arm and hair.
She said she didn't contact
law enforcement because she
was afraid Hawthorne would


hurt her again. She was sched-
uled for surgery on her jaw
May 17, affidavits said.
While Lake Wales police
were talking with her,
Hawthorne called her cellular
phone. She didn't identify her-
self. Hawthorne apparently not
knowing who she was, alleged-
ly left a message for her not to
report him to police or he would
beat her again. Allegedly, he
would return to prison because
he was on house arrest.

Viking Village back to county


Other Lake

June properties

up for changes
By PHIL AT1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners will,
once again, get a chance to hear
about Viking Village from
Sebring Properties Inc.
On Tuesday, developer
Randy Herscovici will ask to
rezone the 2.65-acre parcel on
the east side of State Road 17,
just across from Lake June
Road, to replace the mobile
home park with condominiums.
The item was tabled April 26
when no one showed up to
speak for or against it.
Since then, Herscovici has
reportedly been working to
prove to County Attorney Ross
Macbeth that he complied with
statutes. Florida law requires
landowners to tell tenants about
the rezoning application within
30 days of the hearings, and
where there are spaces in the
county for their mobile homes.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said that's


questionable. The mobile
homes are so old, he said, they
may disintegrate if anyone tries
to move them. There may not
be a moving company willing
to move them. Also, mobile
home parks may not accept the
older homes.
In previous
S hearings, coun-
ty staff said the
applicant had
proof the
notices were
done correctly,
but had not
POLATTY seen the proof.
Commissioner
Bob Bullard, of Lake Placid,
spoke against rezoning based
only on the applicant's word.
Attorney Scott Laconi said
Friday the applicant does have
proof of the certified mailing.
He plans to bring the proof to
Tuesday's meeting, as well as a
copy of the report on suitable
mobile home sites in the area.
Grand Placid Resort
Another mobile home park
- a 2.45-acre parcel on the
north shore of Lake June at the
intersection of State Road 17
and Lake June Road won't
become a resort with condo-


miniums as it was originally
planned. Instead, Polatty said,
the owners Grand Placid
Resort Inc. and Kevin and
Marsha Powers, represented by
attorney Robert E. Livingston
- are asking to rezone it from
high-density residential to
medium-density residential for
single family houses.
Polatty said the owners are
going through the same proce-
dures as Sebring Properties to
notify residents and identify
available lots for mobile homes.
Bar expansion
Jaxson's, a bar and restaurant
on Lake June Road near Lake
Henry, has an application in to
expand the business.
The owners Phoenix Two
of Highlands Inc., represented
by attorney Bert Harris III -
wants to change zoning to
intensify use from medium-
density residential to commer-
cial. This would allow them to
expand the business and add a
smoking deck or patio, Polatty
said.
The planning and zoning
board approved the request, but
county staff is against it. Polatty
has cited concerns from the
neighbors about more intensive
use.

By DESIREE WINDHAM
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Six college
students and their professor
have come from Elmira
College, in Elmira, N.Y., to
unite with Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity in order
to aid in the elimination of sub-
standard housing.
During a six-week educa-
tional and developmental travel
experience, students participate
in cultural and service knowl-
edge development, a home
building domestic trip, and pre-
sentations to civic and school
groups throughout various
counties. Currently enrolled in
the Global Village Mission
course and working with
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity are Melissa Buckley,
Caitlin Howell, Sara Palmatier,
Bre Ann Pepper, Janet Powers
and Malorie Traiser.
Professor Alison M. Wolfe
designed the course agenda and
teaches the Habitat for
Humanity class. Thus, she
describes the course structure as
being one that encourages the
students to "Think outside the
box."
Elmira College also offers
their students the option of join-
ing a "Habitat Club," which
promotes the mission of Habitat
for Humanity and teaches mem-
bers how to best aid their com-
munity. Elmira College is
working in partnership with
Habitat for Humanity in order
to develop creative and
thoughtful servant leaders who
are both prepared as Habitat
volunteers and who wish to
continue to serve Habitat for
Humanity following gradua-
tion.
As a member of the Habitat
Club, Bre Ann Pepper said she
took the Global \l Ilage Mission
course because the members
hadn't "actually done building
and I thought this trip would be
a great opportunity to learn
how."
These Elmira College stu-
dents have also recently trav-
eled to Robbins, Tenn.,, and
Greenville, Miss., where they
participated on other Habitat
build sites.
On May 15, they arrived in
Sebring. They spent a week
here to help the local Habitat
for Humanity.
"We saved the best for last,"
Wolfe said.
By working in conjunction
with Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity, the Elmira stu-
dents engage in a two-fold
process that will include 1)
addressing community-based
issues and needs, and 2) devel-
oping leadership, problem-solv-
ing and practical skills related
to managing community serv-
ice projects.
Student Sara Palmatier said
"the culture" is her favorite part
of the experience during this
six-week travel course.
Pepper most enjoys "meeting
the families."
Student Melissa Buckley
said, "It's been interesting to
get to know the people who are
getting the homes."
The six students describe
their experiences as both educa-
tional and rewarding.
"This experience has offered
me a personal sense of accom-
plishment of doing something
that I wasn't so sure I could do.
It's a personal victory in some
ways," said Janet Powers.
"It's been a great experience
to learn about the different
methods to building a house,"
said Caitlin Howell.
Jane Breylinger, executive


director of Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity, said,
"These energetic young ladies
are a blessing to our ongoing
mission. They've are deter-
mined, have great attitude and

Virulent A-strain of canker could be here in Highlands


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The apparent
discovery of the Asian or A-
strain of citrus canker in a Polk
County nursery might have
more wide ranging effects than
first believed.
Including problems here in
Highlands County.
Canker is a citrus disease that


is harmless to humans but can
cause lesions on fruit and
foliage. It weakens trees and
can cause premature fruit drop-
page. This is said to be the first
such outbreak in Polk County
since 1916 when the disease
swept the state.
According to a memo from
the Florida Division of Plant
Industry, the disease was visual-


ACADEMICS
Continued from 1A
An important distinction was made by the
committee. By creating advanced academics
instead of a gifted only program, students who do
not test as gifted, but who show promise, could
be included in enrichment programs.
In the long term the committee felt a resource
teacher at the district level also would be neces-
sary, especially as the program grows into the
middle and high schools. But at the moment lead-
ers say they will be delighted to simply get one
resource teacher into each elementary school.
The committee did offer the district a compro-
mise, cutting the personnel allocation in half by
allotting one resource teacher to two schools, so


FIRE
Continued from 1A
Firefighters from Leisure
Lakes and DeSoto City volun-
teer fire departments were dis-
patched shortly thereafter.
Leisure Lakes Volunteer
Firefighter Jody Williams, who
was the first to respond, said the
flames were 20-25 feet high.
"By the time the engine
arrived, the (north-west) corner
had fallen in, and the house was
fully involved. We did the best
we could with everything
falling around us," he said.
The six firefighters who
responded fought for three


ly diagnosed during an inspec-
tion at the nursery last weekend.
Meanwhile state officials have
been performing laboratory
tests to confirm the belief.
There is a degree of good
news, in that most of the poten-
tially infected trees that went
from the 14-acre Ben Hill-
Griffin nursery went to Ben Hill
Griffin groves. However, those


each teacher would spend a half a day at each
school they were assigned. But that would mean
important components of the program could not
be instituted, and Juve, for one, is hoping the dis-
trict will embrace the whole plan, despite its need
for four and a half new teachers.
According to Juve, the new teachers would be
the only additional cost for the program, because
the committee has discovered a wide variety of
resource materials, which can be obtained at no
cost. This means the school district would not
have to budget for program supplies.
Board members do not vote at workshop meet-
ings, and other discussions on the advanced aca-
demic plan will be held before a vote is taken on
the issue. However, if head nods are any indica-
tion, the board appeared predisposed in favor of
the plan.

everything falling around us.'

hours to extinguish the flames.
A burned-out shell was all that
remained Saturday morning.
Ball said the fire caused at least
$90,000 $100,000 in damage.
Art Harriman, director of the
Highlands County Red Cross
Service Center, provided the
Brewers, who are staying with
family members, some food
and clothing. The family was
discussing a Saturday afternoon
shopping trip when they gath-
ered at their torched house.


Bob Brewer was visibly
exhausted Saturday morning,
because he and his family had
not slept since the fire started,
but said those interested in
helping can contact Grace
Brethren Church in Sebring at
385-3111. The Brewer family
are members of the church.
"It's just insane, you never
would have thought (that this
would happen)," Hunter
Brewer said. "We've lived here
16 years."

groves are not only in Polk but
also in Highlands and Hardee
counties.
DPI spokeswoman Denise
Feiber said there was a block of
about 5,600 trees that came
from the nursery and subse-
quently were used as replace-
ment trees, or re-sets.
"We have 345 that have
shown visual symptoms," she
said.
Feiber could not say if any of
those had been located yet in
Highlands County.
Officials of DPI are using
nursery records to determine
where both trees and budwood
have been sent in the past six
months: State officials also are
tracking where nursery workers
have gone.
Workers have been going
into the groves and looking at
the resets. If they show signs of
canker they are being pulled up
and destroyed immediately.
Feiber said DPI plans to fol-
low the 1,900-foot rule, mean-


ing that all trees within that
radius must be destroyed to
help prevent the spread of the
citrus disease. She estimated
Thursday that about 500 acres
would be affected by the find
but a lot of it would be deter-
mined on a "case by case"
basis.
"It's an ugly situation and it's
scary on a couple of fronts,"
Highlands County Citrus
Growers Association Executive
Director Ray Royce said when
contacted about the situation.
He said that because of the
isolation of the nursery and its
strict decontamination protocol,
the infection should have been
thwarted.
"If it got in there somehow,
it's scary that it got by in spite
of all of those safeguards," he
said.
Should the infection have
been spread by one or more of
the hurricanes, that again causes
different concerns.
"DPI has never demonstrated


ABSCONDERS
Continued from 1A
Besides finding the 537 missing Florida indi-
viduals, the program verified addresses for anoth-
er 739 sexual predators and offenders, and offi-
cers made 40 arrests on other charges.
Ouverson said officers in Texas found and
arrested Kevin Leroy Rice, 33, formerly of Lake
Placid. The warrant only allows extradition from
other jurisdictions within Florida, so Highlands
County can't have him sent back. He's legally
registered there, Ouverson said, so he's asked
Texas authorities to keep him there.
"If he comes back to Florida," Ouverson said,
"we'll arrest him."
Rice's case is the first time an absconder was
arrested on a local warrant, but couldn't be sent
back. Each case is different, Ouverson said.
The remaining county absconders, as listed on
the FDLE Florida sexual offender and predator
Web site wiww.floridasexoffender.net are
listed below:
Vincent Anthony Alegertti, also known as
Victor Ortiz, 41, a while male standing 5 feet, 8
inches with black hair and brown eyes and
weighing 150 pounds. His last address was in
Avon Park. His offense was a sexual battery or
threat with a deadly weapon.
fI Darryl Evans, 42, a black' male standing 6
feet tall, with black hair and brown eyes, weigh-
ing 205 pounds, was last listed in Avon Park. His


that canker moves any further
than 12-13 miles on the out-
side," Royce said. "If that came
100 miles from the east coast..."
Royce would not speculate
on how the infestation might
have occurred, saying that was
the province of the state offi-
cials who have been investigat-
ing the situation.
Feiber said early indications
showed that the spread of the
canker might have been caused
by equipment in the nursery.
Where the initial infection came
from is not yet known.
"It's still early in the game
for all of that to be determined,"
she said.
Apparently, the infection
might have initially been over-
looked, because some of the
trees also had some bacterial
leaf spotting, which is a much
milder problem suffered by cit-
rus trees.
Currently, the nursery is
being mapped, inventoried and
prepared for control action.


offense was sexual assault/battery.
Douglas Richard Evett, also known as Rich
Evett and Richard Douglas Evett Jr., 38, a white
male standing 5 feet, 8 inches with brown hair
and brown eyes, weighing 180 pounds, 'was last
listed in Avon Park. His offense was a lewd and
lascivious act on a child younger than age 16.
Marcus Hankerson, also known as Marcus
Duraine Hankerson, 34, a black male standing 5
feet, 6 inches, weighing 138 pounds, was last
listed in Sebring. His offense was a lewd and las-
civious act on a child under 16.
Herbert Howard Kirk, 56, a black male

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


It's all in the

wrist and the

welcome
A scene from one of my
favorite movies, "The Best
Years of Their Lives," came to
me the other day, as I was
working at Scoops Ice Cream
Parlor, Sebring, dishing out
delectables.
There's a scene where Dana
Andrews, in the movie a
World War II veteran, talks
about how his job as a soda
jerk before the war prepared
him for his war time duty -
dropping bombs.
He would take the ice cream
filled scoop, he said, or words
to that effect, and judging for
velocity, distance and payload,
would drop each scoop, dead
on target every time.
The former bombardier was
also, absolutely, positively sure
he would never, ever, be a
soda jerk again.
Bob Zylstra, owner and very
much operator, of Scoops,
would politely, and most
vociferously, disagree with the
character's disdain.
For Zylstra being a soda
jerk is more like being a
neighborhood's heart and soul.
He sees selling ice cream as
just the delicious pretext for
bringing people together, to
socialize and chat, and he
delights in providing folks a
chance to get know one anoth-
er. ,

loves being the center of atten-
tion his customer's attention,
that is, as he puts together ice
cream delights at Scoops Ice
Cream Parlor, 2175 U. S. N., in
the Central Plaza just south of
Home Depot.
He wants his place, which is
like a time capsule out of the
'50s, to be the place his neigh-
bors come to relax and social-
ize.
Starting out with a partner, he
now owns and operates the
business by himself. It means
his retirement has become very
busy.
Owning an ice cream parlor
was a dream Zylstra had for a
long time. He eased into it fol-
lowing a career with an office
furniture manufacturer, when
he retired in 1994.
Originally from Grand
Rapids, Mich., he began driving
a refreshment stand wagon all
over that state during the sum-
mer. Came winter and it was
natural to head for Florida, and
he began to winter here regular-
ly.
Selling ice cream out of a
truck was exciting at first, as he
explored new territory and
made new friends. Over time,
however, he discovered a
yearning for roots and a stable
home center. The idea of a
storefront took hold.
His dream is to grow his
business into a neighborhood
fixture, and to pass it along in
due time.
Scoops opened last July and
gained a core of regulars right
from the start.

IMK Group merges with leading Tampa public relations firm


WINTER PARK Central
Florida public relations firm
The IMK Group Inc. has
merged with Tucker/Hall Inc.,
Tampa Bay's leading public
relations firm.
The combined firms will
become one of Florida's largest
public relations organizations,
bringing greater breadth of tal-
ent and resources to clients in
both markets and across
Florida.
Tucker/Hall president Bill


Carlson grew up in Sebring, and
is a 1985 Sebring High School
graduate.
"Orlando and Tampa Bay
have become closely linked
forming a political and econom-
ic powerhouse," Carlson said.
"We wanted to have a presence
on both ends of Florida's bell-
wether region. After looking for
nearly three years, Dori's firm
was a perfect match for us in
terms of culture and talent."
The IMK Group was formed

in 2002 and quickly grew to a

rate client base with strategic
communications, media and

has worked in the market for 24


years, most notably as vice
president of another public rela-
tions firm and prior as vice

fills with friends, and he
expects his employees to rec-
ognize and honor that fact.
At Scoops you're expected
to know your customers, and to
be aware of their tastes.
And you're expected to have
an artistic eye; to know how
important the presentation is.
Make it look pretty is one
cardinal rule.
Serve a generous portion is
another.
But here I'm a little embar-
rassed.
Imagine, me a man who has
always thought of himself as
generous to a fault, finding out
that every time I scooped a
cone, Zylstra told me to go
back and add more. I was
being stingy with the ice
cream. How bad is that?
And this happened every
time I scooped a cone, mind
you, not just the first time.
Even when I thought I was
being generous, I wasn't.
Now I will say in my own
defense that part of the prob-
lem was physical.
It turns out ice cream cones
are built up in layers, so
they're more like an onion than
a snow ball. The initial dig,
therefore, is important because
it forms the core around which
you add more and more.
I was told to fill in the cone,
then build the main scoop, put
it on top, and press it into
place.
But I wasn't getting that ini-
tial dig good and tight, so I got
air pockets. In the scoop it
looked like I had enough, but
when I transferred the ice
cream into the cone and tapped
it down, it would collapse in
on itself, and the serving would
turn out too small.
There was a downside to the
job.
Picture this I'd just built
the mother of all hot fudge
sundaes a spoon of hot


perfectly rounded, mouthwa-
tering scoop more. Then I had
dripped more hot fudge all
over the top, which pooled
along the rim. I'd sprinkled
crushed walnuts liberally, and
finished it off with a crown of
whipped cream, and a jauntily
cocked maraschino cherry.
That sundae was perfection
redux. Only I had to hand it
over to a customer.
Otherwise the job is pure
pleasure.
You do become the center of
attention, as customers watch
every step of the process. I
found a good soda jerk has to
have a sense of showmanship
and flair.

the work, trying to make up
my mind about what I should
taste.
For the record, the chocolate
chip mint was delicious, and
Zylstra's latest creation, an
Orange Tropical Frost (orange
sherbet blended with orange
juice) was to die for.
When tasting ice cream is

you know you've it made.

Ridge Area Arc celebrates annual accomplishments

Agency reflects

on past year with .UI f L
sincere emotion


By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING Emotions
filled the air as Ridge Area Arc
took time out Thursday night at
its annual meeting to celebrate
and recognize clients and vol
unteers who excelled through
out this past year.
There was more than one
occasion that night at the ban-
quet held in Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center,
when Ridge Area Arc
Executive Director Rhonda
Beckman's voice quivered
while she fought back the tears
trying to talk about the people
who impacted the clients served
at her agency. Her love and
compassion for her work was
contagious as other staff mem-
bers came forward to share sto-
ries of accomplishments made
by clients and found they too
were overwhelmed with emo-
tions.
'Susan Lawrence, a supported
living coach in the Arc
Community Services Program,
touched some hearts when she
told how one of her clients
saved a life. Sandra Harper, a
client living in her own apart-
ment in Avon Park, found an
elderly neighbor with her head
bleeding after an accident.
Harper called 911 immediately
for help and her swiftness saved
the woman's life.
Harper has been in Arc's

go out to eat or
attend parties.
Lawrence said even though
Harper has had to deal with
health issues, she manages to
always smile and keep a posi-
tive outlook on life.
For these reasons, Harper
was chosen the Community
Services Program Client of the
Year.
Carlita Hawkins, of Avon
Park, participates in the adult
day training program and
recently established her own
business by crushing aluminum
cans. She opened her own sav-
ings account to put her money
from her business into it so she
can attend a camp or go on a
vacation.
Because of her recent work
accomplishments, Hawkins was
chosen as the Adult Day
Training Client of the Year.
Hawkins stays involved in
her community through church
and neighborhood functions.
She is a member of Special
STARS and loves listening to
blues and gospel music.
Hawkins loves to go shopping
and eat at McDonald's.
Aaron Poller, winner of the
Adult Day Training Intensive
Client of the Year award, has
improved his communication
and self-help skills this past
year. He has been at Arc for the
past three years.

and has accomplished playing
the keyboard. He enjoys paint-
ing, bowling and shopping at
Wal-Mart where he likes to
push the cart.
Carol Snyder, a resident of
the Pleasant Street group home
in Avon Park, was all smiles
when they announced her name
as Residential Services Client
of the Year. Snyder is a self-
advocate and took a leadership
role by developing rules for her
group home. She has been asso-
ciated with Arc for 20 years.

tion time, as well as encourag-

Volunteer recognition
The clients were the focus,
but volunteers in the communi-
ty also were recognized.
Roxanne May of Avon Park
received the Volunteer of the
Year award. May is the presi-
dent of the Arc Parents Group
and serves on the board for the
Special STARS. In addition to
planning events and parties
with these two groups, May
coordinates activities at her sis-
ter-in-law's group home. She
volunteers countless hours in
the art class in the ADT pro-
gram.
The Sprint Community
Relations Team of Avon Park
was chosen as the Arc Hero
award winner. Currently, there
are seven members of the Avon
Park team. These employees
donate time and money for cho-
sen projects. For the past 15
years, the team has hosted a
Valentine's party and dance for
Arc. The team also participates
in the United Way Day of
Caring.

Kuhn started the horse program
in 1998 with a group of volun-
teers to provide a free riding
program for children and adults
with disabilities in the

All ready to take part in the Easter activities at Fred Wild
Elementary School are volunteers Robert 'Mr. Bob' and Carol
Conley, in this 2002 photo. 'Mr. Bob,' who died last year, was hon-
ored at a dedication ceremony May 18 at the school.


'Mr. Bob' remembered


at Fred Wild
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING If there's one
word that describes the late
Robert W. Conley as a youth
and as a senior citizen, that
word is "service."
Even before joining the ranks
of the U.S. Army in World War
II, Conley provided service to
his country by enrolling in the
Civilian Conservation Corps in
1939 during ,the Great
Depression. During his year in
the CCC, he worked in a tree
nursery, planted trees, fought
forest fires, performed roadside
beautification and clerked in a
forestry office.
Fifty-four years later, he
embarked on another service
career as a volunteer at Fred
Wild Elementary School, where
he worked faithfully every
Thursday from 1993-2004,
helping students mainly with
their reading and their math. He
passed away a year ago.
On Tuesday, faculty and stu-
dents fondly remembered "Mr.
Bob" as he was known at the
school at a dedication cere-
mony.
"He was an adorable and
: lovely person,,,school principal
Ruby Handley said. at the gath-
ering. "I didn't know he had a
last name for a long time. He
was always 'Mr. Bob' and he
came here because he wanted to
come."
"Mr. Bob" had also been
chosen as the Fred Wild
Volunteer of the Year in 1996.
Several of the teachers he


Elementary
had worked with over the years
were also on hand at the dedica-
tion, including Lu Brannon,
Janet Bollinger and Carol
Willard.
"I don't know if he loved the
children more or if the children
loved him more," Brannon said.
Bollinger said Mr. Bob had a
way "of finding the child who
needed special attention."
And Willard said that Mr. -
and Mrs. Bob both put
together books for the children
to read, adding that "Mrs. Bob"
- Carol Conley still carries
on as a volunteer at the school.
Joby Hostetler, 9, recalled
Mr. Bob helping him in kinder-.
garten. "He was a very good
guy," Joby said. "When we
were struggling with some-
thing, he'd come and help us
with it."
Another student, Minh
Nyguen, remembered how "Mr.
Bob" "used to make me laugh
all the time."
The high point of the dedica-
tion was the unveiling of a stat-
ue of a boy and girl, donated by
Carol Conley, to be placed in a
memorial garden in front of the
schooll this summer In her com-
ments to the children aitending
the dedication, she said, "As
you pass this little statue, I hope
you will say, 'Hi, Mr. Bob' -
and know he is still here in spir-
it."
Handley echoed that same
message when she said, "If
someone is not with us, they
live on in our hearts and in our
memories."


Archbold seeks repair funds


News-Sun
SEBRING After more
than 60 years in the Florida
scrub, Archbold Biological
Station may receive a shape up.
The independent, nonprofit
research facility has applied for
funds from the Division of
Historical Resources to repair
the roof and restore the main
buildings in the wake of last
year's hurricane season.
For 64 years, the station has
provided a campus for ecologi-
cal research in the buildings of
what once was the Red Hill


Estate of John Roebling Jr. His
son, Donald, donated the estate
on July 21, 1941, so that his
school-time friend Richard
Archbold could found a biolog-
ical field station.
Today, the station owns and
manages 5,193 acres of global-
ly significant natural preserve
in Lake Placid the 3,648-
acre Reserve adjacent to the
station and the 10,300-acre
MacArthur Agro-Ecology
Research Center at Buck Island
Ranch in Lake Placid.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER


SECTION B + SUNDAY, MAY 22, 2005


Reaching an

elevated plain
Hiking in the mountains is
an exhilarating challenge.
There have been times when
I wondered if the endless
climb would only lead to a
cliff's edge where we'd have-
to hang by our fingers. How
could there be anything else
up so high?
A few years ago, I thought
a one-mile hike in Colorado
would be a piece of cake
since I'd been walking four
miles each day in Florida.
We'd been;told it was a chal-
lenge, but with swaggering
self-assurance, I entered into
the climb. Less than half-
way, I fell off my high horse
of self-confidence. No one
had told me it was one mile
straight up.
We can be over-confident
in other areas, too. I recall
parading past warning signs
when we bought our first
house. The owner had devel-
oped his own alternative
heating system by attaching
pipes through the fireplaces
in the house. With a roaring
fire (as we saw when we vis-
ited), the pipes in all the
rooms kept the home toasty.
When we explained to
friends and family how we
would heat the house we
were about to buy, they
looked at us with raised eye-
brows and shaking heads.
Red flags that we ignored.
It had worked for the for-
mer owners, it would work
for us. But, we had a slight
problem. We couldn't get a
roaring fire going. In fact,
we could barely get a spark
lit. Finally tired of wearing
long underwear in the house
we called in a professional.
His assessment was less than
'hopeful.
When the electric heating
bills had us hanging with.
bare finger tips from the pin-
nacle of our financial moun-
tain, we sought the Lord in
prayer.
In his inimitable'way, God
led us to discover a natural
gas line across the road from
our house. Suddenly, instead
of hanging precariously, we
saw an elevated plain.
We stepped out and
inquired. Before we knew it,
a new gas heating system
was installed and we were
enjoying the satisfaction of
having arrived at a safe and
comfortable reward.
That day when we finally
reached the top of the .one-
mile hike, I saw why it was
called, "Hanging Lake." A
crystal clear lake and a vast
table land seemed to be
hanging in mid-air saying,
"welcome." Pristine beauty
took my breath away and
made ine feel as if I had
stepped into a work of art.
Our Creator had rewarded
our hard climb with a place
of safety, beauty and comfort
his masterpiece.
God warns us that when
we swagger with pride, we'll
fall. But, when he calls us to
"Come up here" as he did to
John in Revelation 4 (NIV)
and we depend on him to
lead the climb in our spiritu-
al journey with him he'll
lift us up to a place of beau-
ty we cannot even imagine.
Selah.

citrus to make



a profit





The packaging line is fully integrated with the adjacent processing
plant and storage facility, resulting in many operational efficiencies.
The company converted 25,000 square feet from a cold storage area
to the packaging operation,.which can produce 120 half-gallon car-
tons from not from concentrate orange juice per minute, including
'regular,' 'low-acid,' 'pulp-added' and 'calcium-added' NFC orange
juice.


This is the second of a two-part story
about the United States Sugar
Corporation. This story focuses on the
citrus industry in the company.


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
CLEWISTON
n addition to' processing sugar,
United States Sugar Corporation's
other principal business is citrus.
Southern Gardens Citrus began opera-
tions in 1994 with the first citrus pro-
cessing plant to be built in Florida in 25
years. The plant can now process more
than 140 million gallons of orange juice
annually.
During the October-to-June harvest
season, the citrus plant processes more
than 20 million boxes of oranges into the
popular natural strength, not-from-con-
centrate premium Florida orange juice
and orange juice concentrate. An indus-
try leader in fresh orange juice, Southern
Gardens now has 56 one-million-gallon
aseptic (100 percent bacteria free) stor-
age tanks.
Southern Gardens,-Groves is one of
the state's largest citrus groves with
32,000 acres and more than 3 million
orange trees. Being both a grower and
processor helps the company ensure the
quality of the fruit from the moment it is
picked, through its processing, and all
the way to its delivery to its customers

How o '; 2- juices is
pul
Jim Snively is vice president of grove
operations at Southern Gardens. He has
lived in Lake Placid. since 1988 and
enjoys the 50-mile drive to the plant.
,"It's no big deal. I've always done a
lot of driving in this business. It's just
part of it," Snively said.
Snively received his degree from
Florida State College in Lakeland in cit-
rus business.
"I've always grown oranges. My great
grandfather was a citrus farmer in the
1980s. My family was always involved.
It's in my blood. I love the challenge of
growing citrus. And it's fun," Snively
said.
Previously he was the area grove
manager for Consolidated Citrus.
"This is the same business, just a step
up for me. Now I oversee all grove oper-
ations from harvest through production..
I supervise 32,000 acres with three grove
managers, a harvest manager, a safety
manager, an environmental manager, a
research horticulturalist, and an equip-
ment coordinator," Snively said.
Oranges are delivered in trailers,
which are elevated so that the fruit can
be gently unloaded. They are washed to
remove dirt, leaves and twigs. After

leaves and twigs and an3 remaining
stems are mechanically removed.

removed, the fruit goes through the first
grading process to remove damaged
fruit.
Conveyors and bucket elevators then
carry the fruit into storage bins. Each bin
holds one trailer of fruit. On its way to
the bins, a required sample of fruit is
taken by the Florida Department of
Agriculture for testing to ensure
Florida's high quality standards are
maintained.
After the fruit passes state inspection
it is released from the bins by quality
control for final washing and grading,
where it's sorted by size as it enters one
of the three juice extractor lines.' The
extractor lines run 23 hours a day and
squeeze the juice out of 23,000 oranges
every minute, resulting in 650,000 gal-
lons of orange juice every day.
Snively said, the juice extractors sep-
arate the juice and pulp from the peel,
seeds and membrane. At the same time,
orange oil is squeezed from the peel. The
recovered orange oil is used in flavor-
ings and chemical applications. The
peel, seeds and membranes are conveyed
to the feed mill to be converted into cat-
tle feed.
The juice and pulp continue to the
juice finishers, where they're able to tai-
lor the juice's pulp content to customer
specifications. Pulp cells and pulp wash
are separated and recovered as by-prod-
ucts that are used in fruit beverages.
At this point, the juice processing
splits into production of natural strength
and concentrated orange juice. Not-
from-concentrate juice is pasteurized,
quickly heated to destroy bacteria and
then chilled to 32 degrees.
For concentrated orange juice, evapo-

ration units remove 85 percent of the
-watei Each- of the three units can
remove nearly 25,000 gallons of water
per hour, Snively explained. The essence
and aromas, major by-products, are
recovered in this step to be used in the
flavor and fragrance industries.
The concentrate moves through a
chilling process, where it is cooked to 34
degrees. By now the juice has been
reduced to one-sixth its former volume.
This concentrate is blended to the speci-
fications of each customer. Then it is fur-
ther chilled to less than 20 degrees and
transferred to tank farm storage.
In the concentrate tank farm, 5 million
gallons of concentrated orange juice are
stored in 200,000-gallon bulk tanks at a
constant temperature. In addition, the
tank farm can store cold pressed oil and
essence.
The NFC juice is stored in one of the
plant's 56 one-million-gallon indoor
tanks. Juice from both the NFC and con-
centrate tanks can be directly loaded into
tanker trucks for transportation to the
customers, Snively said.
Conveyors transfer whatever is
remaining after the juice, essences, oils
and pulp wash are recovered, to thefeed
mill. It is pressed and heated to remove
moisture in a large dryer. Waste heat
from the dryer is used to evaporate the
liquid removed in the presses. In this
process, Di'Limonene, a valuable, natu-
ral solvent, is recovered. Citrus molasses
is added to the dried pulp and peel to
make cattle feed.
Water from the plant's evaporation
units is recycled and treated, then used to
irrigate citrus groves, saving 500,000
gallons of water a day.
U.S. Sugar exemplifies efficiency,
self-sufficiency, and environmental
compatibility.


Jim Snively, vice president of groves at
Southern Gardens Citrus, uses a 10 per-
cent hand lens to inspect fruit for rust
mites, a common Florida pest that, if
found, can be damaging to citrus crops.

Tours are from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Monday through Friday, October
through March, with group rates avail-
able. The Sugarland Express is reserved
through the Clewiston Chamber of
Commerce (863) 983-7979. The tour
visits the sugar mill and refinery, and
includes lunch at the Clewiston Inn. In
addition, the bus goes to Southern
Gardens Citrus, where people can see
the outside of the structure and view the
fruit going into the plant. Since visitors
are not permitted inside the plant, a
video of the juice processing is shown.
Total cost is $27.50 per person.

ARTS & LEISURE


Good investment Clinton sees 'dark faces' while having heart sul


When it comes to money, libraries
return much more than they get


Money every-
one wants it, but
when it comes to
government, every-
one wants to know
where it's going and
what it's accom-
plishing.
The Florida
Library Association
has sent us some
eye-opening infor-
mation I'd like to
share with you.
About one-half of


LIBRARY

Carol)


our Highlands County Library
System budget (for Avon Park,
Lake Placid, and Sebring public
libraries) comes from state gov-
ernment in the form of State
Aid.
This money matches local
dollars spent on public
libraries. The more the county
government budgets for the
library system, the more money
comes from State Aid.
According to FLA's statis-
tics, "Florida's public libraries
return $6.54 to the economy for
every $1 invested from all
sources." So what do the
resources of the library do to
help? ,
"The economic impact of
libraries directly affects
Florida's citizens. Every 'dollar
invested in libraries results in
an additional $12.66 in wages
in Florida's economy. A $1 pub-
lic investment in libraries
results in a $9.08 increase in the
gross state product."
In today's much diminished
interest market, those kind of
returns are remarkable!
But libraries are much more
than economic boosters. We are
a "community anchor that
improves the quality" of city
and county life. People who
need information on business
opportunities, on higher educa-
tion institutions, on honing
skills and understanding how to
resolve situations, on medical
problems, or, home. improve-
ment challenges, all can come
to the library to find answers.
Ask someone who home
schools and they will tell you
that the library is an invaluable
resource for their children.
Books on history, geography,
math, reading skills, music, and
writing are readily available,
plus all kinds of vocabulary-
building stories, and just plain
fun videos and books.
Need help finding a science
project or a play that reinforces
confidence in a young person?
The library is the place to find
what you need, a treasure-filled
building with enough music,
movies, travel, history, crafts,
biographies, price guides, mag-
azines, audio books, large print,
and picture books to satisfy any


age, any interest.
_- Now in the unlikely
S event that you can't
find exactly what
you'd like on a sub-
ject, those free library
cards also entitle you
to ask for help
through Interlibrary
Loan. This service
LINES allows us to search the
equivalent of a nation-
yn wide on-line book cat-
alog and to request
what some other
library is holding.
Our libraries have weekly
children's programs for birth to
5-year-olds, and every summer
we offer two weeks of stories
and crafts for elementary-age
children. Our children's areas
are fun places to.browse and a
welcoming area for new readers
with picture books, I-Can-Read
books, CDs, videos, and pre-
teen books. (Where else could
you find a hoard of Nancy
Drew and Hardy Boys sto-
ries?).
Teenagers are really into
graphic novels and the Japanese
Manga books, and our shelves
are bursting with them. Teens
will find all types of reading
from romance to otherworld
tales. By the way, Manga books
are read in Japanese fashion,
from the back to the front. Look
for the YA labels for reading at
high school level with teen
interest themes.
Browsers, and "I'm just
waiting for..." people, will
really enjoy the daily newspa-
pers, the dozens of magazines
(including back issues), plus
the space to spread out the
paper and read to your heart's
content.
Comfortable chairs make
those minutes just fly by, or you
may want to take a closer look
at the this month's display at

By HILLEL ITALIE
AP National Writer
NEW YORK In the paper-
back edition of "My Life," for-
mer President Clinton acknowl-
edges that his memoir may have
been too long, recounts some
friendly faces from his book
tour and some odder ones sight-
ed under the influence of anes-
thesia as he underwent heart
surgery last September.
"At first I saw a series of
dark faces, like death masks,
flying toward me and being
crushed," writes Clinton, whose
book comes out May 31 in both
trade and mass market paper-
back. "Then I saw circles of
light with the faces of Hillary,
Chelsea, and others I cared
about flying toward me, then
away into a bright, sun-like
source."
When Clinton regained con-
sciousness after surgery, he
"waved to people, said I was all
right, and laughed." At least,
that's what his wife, Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, told
him. The former president him-
self doesn't remember.
"My Life" has sold just under


Adding more details, former president
expands paperback version of his
autobiography to 969 pages


2.2 million copies in its 957-
page hardcover edition, and
interest apparently is strong for
the paperback. The trade paper-
back, which has the same
dimensions as hardcover, will
have a first printing of 300,000
- 50,000 copies more than
originally announced. The mass
market paperback, a cheaper,
pocket-sized edition, will have
two volumes, the first with a
printing of 600,000, the second
in late June at 575,000.
Much of the new material -
a 12-page afterword, and'a brief
preface summarizes
Clinton's recent activities, from
the building of his presidential
library in Little Rock, Ark., to
raising money for Tsunani vic-
tims. He also offers a quick
analysis of last year's presiden-
tial election, urging fellow
Democrats not to move "hard to
the left."
Clinton acknowledges com-
plaints about the book's length

and names a possible culprit,
his wife. He calls the senator's
memoirs, "Living History," a
"fine book" (he has called his
own book "pretty good") and
says that her success "added to
the pressure" for him to meet a
June 2004 deadline.
"Most people thought it was
too long a fair criticism.
Thomas Jefferson once said that
if he had had more time he
could have written shorter let-
ters," writes Clinton, whose
afterword helps rhake the trade
paperback even longer, 969
pages.
Many reviewers were bored
by "My Life." The Associated
Press likening it to being
trapped "in a small room with a
very gregarious man who
insists on reading his entire
appointment book, day by day,
beginning in 1946." Clinton
directly mentions only a favor-
able review, by novelist Larry
McMurtry, and otherwise pans

rgery last year
the press for caring more about
gossip: "The reviewers who
were interested in people, poli-
tics and government seemed to
like it better than those who
weren't."
He remembers a better recep-
tion on his promotional tour,
such as the young readers who
thought the book would "offer
guidance about how they, too,
could live their dreams." He
also notes those of "modest
means" who had purchased a
copy of the hardcover, which
has a suggested retail price of
$35.
"When I saw how many peo-
ple of modest means came to
the book signing, I worried
about my. long and heavy book
also being too expensive,"
writes Clinton, whose book has
a $17.95 suggested price in
trade paperback and $7.99 for
each of the mass market vol-
umes.
"I can't change the length,
but I hope the paperback edi-
tion, in reducing the weight and
cost, will make 'My, Life'
accessible to a new round of
readers."

Invasive silk oaks have become nuisance


Classified ads get results
385-6155 465-0426 452-1009


The Silk Oak (Grevillea pro-
teaceae) is a common tree in
Highlands County, but many
have never heard its name. It
grows to heights of 75 feet or
more and may have a trunk two
to three feet in circumference.
Like many of our more exot-
ic trees, it is native to Australia.
It can be killed by severe cold,
so it usually is only found in the
southern half of Florida,
California and Hawaii.
In fact Hawaii now counts it
as one of the most invasive
species that has invaded the
islands. It was imported to
Hawaii to be used as a timber
tree, as its wood is considered
desirable for furniture due to its
dark brown color.
Here in Florida, it usually
grows in the shape of a pyra-
mid. It may develop some
heavy horizontal limbs with a
thick trunk where it has ample
amounts of light, but may stay
quite slim when it is crowded.
It develops light, ferny, grey
green leaves that are silvery
underneath. It will have large
clusters of yellow flowers in the
spring.
A great quantity of leaves
will fall in the spring and sum-
mer, and create quite a litter
problem. Black, leathery seed


capsules follow the
flowering of the
plant. ,
Birds spread these
seeds, and volunteer
plants will appear
with great regularity.
The writer of this
article lives in the '
Pinecrest area of
Avon Park, and a GRO
large number of silk S
oaks exist in yards
and vacant property.
Like the ear tree, High
woman's tongue tree, County
and others we will Gard
mention in the
future, the greatest danger of
silk oaks is having one of them
fall on your property and the
cost of removal or clean-up
when they are mature.
If you would like to look at
some pictures of the silk oak
and most any other plant that
you have the genus and species
name of then do the following:
Go to Google or Yahoo
search engines, and type in
Florida Plant Atlas and hit
enter.

ated with the USF Botany
Department. Click on that site,

Spending days at the beach



Family enjoys camping out at Sebastian Inlet State Park


Sebastian Inlet is the premier
saltwater fishing location on
Florida's east coast, but that
statement barely scratches the
surface of describing the
incredible Sebastian Inlet State
Park. With two Atlantic Ocean
jetties, two completely different
beach experiences, and two
museums, this. park offers
something for everyone.
Sebastian Inlet was recently
rated one of the top 100 family
campgrounds in America, and
after staying there, I would
wholeheartedly agree. This
state park is just 34 years old,
and the facilities are in great
shape.
The campground contains 51
gravel-bottomed campsites,
with vegetation like sea grapes,
beach sunflowers, and gumbo
limbo trees providing the buffer
between sites. Adjacent to the
campsites, an area is noted for
future expansion to camping
cabins.
There is little shade at this
campground, and while the
ocean breeze was nearly contin-
uous and kept the insects at bay,
tent campers may want to pack
a fan to help keep cool.
All the campsites are within a
brief walk to the restrooms,
which we found to be clean.
Other convenient amenities
included washers and dryers,
dishwashing sinks, interpretive
kiosks with marine life identi-
fied, and our personal favorite -
the family restrooms.
Located next to both the men
and ladies' restrooms, these
completely accessible "family
restrooms" consisted of a large.
shower, sink, and toilet combi-
nation. It made showering off
after a day on the beach an
absolute breeze.
My daughter and I could both
shower and getdressed without
getting our clothes wet, or hav-
- ing to contend with the lack of
privacy found in most camp-
ground restrooms. The
adjustable showerhead was
great as she was able to adjust it
to the right height.
These facilities were a nice
bonus to our camping experi-
ence, which focused primarily
around the water.


Our first beach day
was spent on the
Atlantic Ocean beach'
area. You can either
drive to the beach
areas, or walk about
one-third mile from
the campground to
this beach via the
South Jetty. Parking
is ample, restrooms
are spacious and
clean, and board-
walks take you right
past showering facili-
ties to the beach.


REAL FLORIDA

Dorothy Harris
iim


The view of the water, the
expansive jetty and far-reaching
beach was enchanting. The
rolling blue-green waves
absolutely thrilled our daughter,
and the coarse tan and golden-
flecked sands were dazzling.
This sand was unlike any-
thing we've experienced at the
gulf. It resembles coarse raw
sugar, not the snowy-white
powder we were familiar with.
It also feels completely differ-
ent, and really needs to be expe-
rienced under the bright sun to
fully appreciate its sparkling
beauty.
The water was surprisingly
cool and refreshing simply
wonderful on these hot summer
days. While my husband and.
daughter were playing in the
waves, a large object sort of
slipped past behind them, with-
out their even noticing.
At first I thought it was a
huge mat of sea grass, but soon
it became clear that this was' a
large ocean creature. Despite
my animated gestures, they
both missed seeing the manatee
that swam just 10 feet behind
them.
Although disappointed to
have missed it, they both got to
see more manatees and dol-
phins from the jetty the next
day. Here multitudes of serious
fishermen arid women roii :heir
carts of fishing gear, aerated
bait tanks, and any number of
rods in the hopes of landing a
big one.
While Sebastian is noted for
snook, redfish, bluefish, and
Spanish mackerel, during our
brief visit to the jetty we saw.
folks catching mostly bait fish
with nets. My daughter actually


picked up several of
the small, shiny sil-
ver fish, although she
didn't much care for
their slimy feel.
More fishing
adventure was found
at the Sebastian
Fishing Museum
near the main camp-
ing area of the park.
Dedicated to
exhibiting the rich
history of the local
commercial fishing
industry, this interac-


tive museum was a delight to
walk through.
Lifelike displays of the late
1800s fish houses and fishing
industry made this story come
alive. My daughter was espe-
cially intrigued with the syn-
thetic ice in the exhibit displays.
More shells, T-shirts,
swimwear and gift items could
be found near the Atlantic side
at the Sebastian Inlet Eatery.
This concession stand and gift
shop offers a place to browse
for souvenirs while you are
waiting for your food to be pre-
pared. The menu offers a wide
variety of tasty items at
extremely reasonable prices.
Next door at the Sebastian
Inlet Bait and Tackle, you can
rent boogie boards, boats, or
even get a fishing license. You
can buy live or frozen bait, rods
and reels, and even get one
repaired if the one that got away
tore up your rod upon its
escape.
Here on this side of the inlet
a tidal lagoon offers a shallow
nearly waveless swimming
experience. Closer to the boul-
ders that shelter this lagoon,
many colorful fish swam in the
current.
We spent some time search-
ing for the tiny spider-like crabs
hidden in the fine, powdery
sands of this beach. Later we
enjoyed the dinosaur-themed
playground near the Indian
River lagoon, where boat ramps
and the picnic area are located.
Large, nicely equipped pavil-
ions and spacious restrooms
would make this oceanfront
spot known as Coconut Point

Teacher of the year .. .


is a class 'ACT' i i


By CHRISTOPHER TUFF
News-Sun


IEY
SEBRING


Some people become
teachers. Others are
born to teach.
Janet Harris, a third-
grade teacher at Fred Wild
Elementary School, was born
to her profession.
Even though she majored in
child development at Florida
State University, Harris drifted
into a career in journalism. She
was an editorial assistant for
the St. Petersburg Times and
Jacksonville's Florida Times-
Union, as well as for Florida's
Secretary of State before enter-
ing the world of education.
She left the workforce to
raise her children. She had a
dream of starting a large pre-
school center, but after her
own children started school,
she contented herself with sub-
stitute teaching until she began
to long for a classroom of her
own.
Because she had majored in
child development, Harris was
eligible for the school district's
inaugural class of the
Alternative Certified Teacher
program, an alternative way

The program is designed for
people without teacher train-
ing. Harris was assigned a
class, and while teaching it -
with the help of a mentoring
teacher. Throughout her first
year, on every other Saturday,

Consortium.
Among other things, Harris
learned about lesson planning,
classroom management, ethics
and the Sunshine State
Standards. The classes provid-
ed opportunities for her to
engage in discussions with the
visiting professors and her fel-
low students and to receive
advice from them.
Harris describe the experi-
ence as "a grueling 10
months." The training was
intense she said with six to
seven hours of instruction, plus
homework.
"But they had great guest
speakers. I really learned what
I needed to do," she said.
Her teacher-mentor,
Stephanie Davis, visited her
classroom two or three times a
week to observe and analyze
problems.
Today, Harris is relaxed but
all business. She coaxes
responses from the shy stu-
dents and welcomes contribu-
tions from the eager.
She's persnickety about
grammar and punctuation, and
as a result her students have
mastered some complicated
concepts,. ..---.- --. : ,e
For example, they can take


an incorrect, unpunctuated sen-
tence, and make it right.
There is structure and
rhythm in her classroom, and
her students aren't afraid to try.
Her colleagues recognize her
talent as well. This year, just
three years after completing
her ACT training, Harris was
named her school's teacher of
the year.
"Janet is our poster child for
the ACT program," said
Vivianne Waldron, coordinator
of human resources for The
School Board of Highlands
County.
Harris was surprised to be

although she had that goal for
herself at some time in her

One little girl had come to
her, thanking her for helping
her learn. She had done well
on her FCAT.
"I said to her, 'You did this
on your own. This (score) is a
reflection of how well you
did,'" Harris said, then added,
"Imagine, to say thank you at
Such a young age," and she .
beamed with pride.

What trumps the Constitution?


At this writing, it
seems Senate leaders
are nearing a "com-
promise" on the boil-
ing issue of judicial
filibustering by a
minority of Demo-
crats. Reports indi-
cate that Democrats
will approve five of
seven federal judges
they previously
opposed by threat of
filibuster, while
Republicans will not
amend Senate proce-


POLIO
NOTE

LOWELI


dural rules to prohibit judicial
filibustering.
Let me be clear at the outset:
the Senate has, since its incep-
tion, been a deliberative body
'that is at its very best when its
members find common ground
in the name of preserving, pro-
tecting and advancing the
Constitution while serving the
interests of the people.
The problem with this com-
promise, however, is that it
undermines the Constitution
and fails to ser'e the people,
. At best this rubber- stmpn- '! -
and at worst it seals inn.a\ -
that an obstructionist minority
can prevent the Senate from
carrying out its Constitutional
responsibility to give advice
and consent on the president's
federal judicial appointments.
The Senate makes its own
rules for how it operates inter-
nally. These rules are amended
frequently, as well they should
be. The Constitution sets forth
principles by which our nation
functions. This document is
amended in only the rarest of
circumstances (see, for exam-
ple, the end of the Civil War).
Senate procedural rules are to
the Constitution as spark plugs
are to an automobile engine.
Which should be discarded if
the whole machine sputters?
This fundamental truth is so
essential that it bears repeating:
Our Constitution is at the mercy
of a procedural tactic.
"Advice and consent" in that
house of the people is properly
manifested in exactly one way:
through a debate and vote on
the floor of the Senate. And yet
some Senators refused to allow
the whole Senate to carry out
that responsibility. This com-
promise means that the leader-
ship has missed an historic
opportunity to restore meaning
and force to the words of the
United States Constitution.
In truth, both parties are at
fault for the politicization of
this process. Both parties are
responsible for failing to get the


job done. What fili-
busters allow
Senators to do is hide
behind party solidari-
ty. It destroys incen-
tive to find a com-
S mon middle ground
. (particularly in a
closely divided
Senate as we have
TICAL today) and resolve
each nominee in a
EBOOK way that represents
the nation's will and
L BAKER the Constitution's
precepts.
These procedural rules allow
partisan politics to stymie the
will of the people, and to frus-
trate the purpose of the
Constitution. Eliminating the
judicial filibuster would have
freed the Senate of the burdens
of those politically charged pro-
cedural rules.
A minority of Senators
should not be able to use a fili-
buster to prevent a nominee
from getting a fair up-or-down
vote, when that nominee has
..-majority- support.- Majorities in
Sihe Senate, we shouldd remem-.
be(, represent majorities among
the public.
I understand that our
Constitution is inspired in its
protection of minority interests.
The will of the majority, no
matter how strong, may not
infringe on certain Consti-
tutional rights that are funda-
mental to our notions of a free
society. But to equate freedoms
of religion, speech and due
process with political judicial
filibustering is like comparing
Norman Rockwell's work to a
kindergartener's finger-paint-
ings. One is truly art; the other
is merely throwing color on
paper.and seeing what sticks.
What minority rights are at
stake? If the president nominat-
ed persons of truly reprehensi-
ble character and grossly inade-
quate qualification, then they
would pose a threat to our rights
through their action on the
bench. But that is not the case.
Perhaps the nominees are
conservative. Perhaps they
engage in the level of jurispru-
dence that shocks the con-
science of judicial activists -
that is, they apply the law as it
is, not how they believe it
should be. But these are insuffi-
cient reasons to oppose a nomi-
nee.
Or more, precisely, they do
not present a threat to a minori-
ty of Americans that need to
have their civil liberties protect-
ed. The only threatened minori-
ty is Senate Democrats, and


those are the stakes of a politi-
cal electoral process.
I have heard that the so-
called "nuclear" option would
have been a "radical" action by
the Senate. Setting aside for a
moment the fact that amending
Senate rules is not a radical
action, let us fairly consider
how the Democrats got their
way. They threatened to shut
down the whole Senate. In a
time of war against terrorism,
increasing energy costs, and a
growing public demand to
amend Social Security, they
would shut down the govern-
ment to protect their procedural
rule.
It wasn't enough to under-
mine the Constitution. No, it
was also necessary to cut off the
American peoples' nose in
order to spite the American peo-
ples' face.
Some expressed concern that
there would be no "check" on
the process of judicial appoint-
ments once the judicial fili-
buster is prohibited. I too agree
that a fundamental notion of our
democratic nation is a system of
:checks and balance
However, I believe protect-
ing a majority Senate vote
enhances accountability in our
government. When Senators are
compelled to cast their up or
down vote, the American peo-
ple are guaranteed to know
where their elected leaders
stand.
Then, come Election Day, the
greatest and most fundamental
check and balance in our gov-
ernment comes to bear. The
American people will vote, and
they'll do so knowing how each
Senator voted on these all-
important judicial nominees.
Republicans, too, will be
subject to the political process
if they truly appoint draconian
judges. The Democrats should
rejoice in such an event.
Perhaps it will be enough to
turn the tide back in their favor,
given their increasing loss of
seats in the Senate.
If the judicial filibuster
ended today, the American peo-
ple would henceforth manifest
our will in that representative
house without being beguiled
by its too common political and
procedural posturing. Unfor-
tunately, politics has again pre-
vailed.

LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


At home

with some

writers

OK, here's the scenario.
Take 13 writers, all of different
personalities, backgrounds, and
writing abilities. Put them all in
a 12-bedroom house for a
week. Add two award winning
editors to teach, guide and chal-
lenge the group. Toss in a best
selling author to advise and
chat with and make sure said
group doesn't destroy his
house. Don't forget to include a
cat that rules the house with
benign aloofness. What do you
have?
You have Oregon Coast
Short Story Workshop 2005,
where I spent more than a week
this month with fellow writers
in search of growing in our
craft.
Our hosts for this experience
were Dean Wesley Smith, best-
selling author, and his wife,
Kristine Kathryn Rusch, prolif-
ic award-winning author and an
award-winning editor. They
have done workshops like this
for several years now, opening
their doors to fledgling writers
from all over.
They don't let just anyone
in; as Dean reminded us, we
were guests in their home.
Those of us who attended had
to apply for a space in the
workshop. They wanted peo-
ple who were very motivated,
and who really wanted to take
their writing to the next step.
They were careful to warn us
before we even got to Oregon
this was not a vacation, this
was not a week long party. If
we came, we'd better be pre-
pared to work.
And work we did. Kris, with
her fellow teacher Gardner
Dozois .(another ,-aard-diin-
ning editor) didn't just sit there
and lecture -s the'yiboth
forced all of us to look deep
within ourselves. They were
not afraid to point out our
weaknesses as they went
through our manuscripts,
explaining to us why as editors
they would have accepted or
rejected something had it come
across their desk. They were
what we as writers need and
don't always get if we ask our
loved ones to critique our work
they were honest with us.
But even if we felt knocked
down, they were right there to
pick us up, dust us off, and give
us the vision and confidence
we needed. I know I
approached the workshop with
some concern what if I was-
n't cut out for this? Kris and
Gardner made it clear to me
that I was indeed cut out for
this, and that my dream of
growing as a writer was not
unattainable.
Of course, we managed to
have fun. Throw a bunch of
people together who play with
words and be prepared for the
jokes and puns to fly. Many of
the jokes cannot be repeated in
the column because a) they are
not the kind I would tell and b)
this is a family newspaper.
There were also clean jokes, so
I did get to laugh too.
One thing that impressed me
was how well we all got along
together. The 13 of us shared
two bathrooms and one large
kitchen. Given a lot of us were
strangers, you might think that
was a recipe for conflict. But it
never happened. In fact, we all
worked together to make sure
things ran smoothly.
No one whined about wait-
ing for the bathroom. Coffee
drinkers cheerfully took turns
making coffee. Everyone
pitched in to keep the kitchen
clean.
There is not a single person I
didn't feel friendship with that
week.

Filth has advantage over purity Picture lesson becomes a heritage lesson


Haggai 2:11-
13 (Says, in SNAPSHOTS OF
effect,:) When
that which is TRUTH
pure touches
that which is A. Kenneth Hannum
impure, the
impure is not
rendered pure; on the contrary, the pure is
defiled. (Circa: 520 B.C.)
Back in 1988, in the second of these
"Snapshots" I ever wrote, I used the
above passage to decry the manifestly
unfair advantage of filth over purity. I
talked about what happens to a beaker of
a chemically pure substance if one drop
of contaminant is introduced. It is then no
longer chemically pure.
On the other hand, a beaker full of a
contaminated substance cannot be ren-
dered pure even by the introduction of a
large amount of chemically pure material.
The combination willremain impure.
Similarly, if I walk across Mom's clean
floor with dirty shoes, the floor is now
dirty; but if I walk across a dirty floor
with clean shoes, both the shoes and the
floor end up dirty.
Face it: filth has the advantage over
purity!
In my first discussion of this topic, I
should have used this as a springboard to
drive home the vulnerability and irre-
trievability of purity short of supernat-
ural intervention. I speak not just of sexu-
al purity, that, of course, but of all forms
of purity. Once I depart from a simple
lifestyle of respect for righteousness,
truth and honesty and incorporate into my
doings evil thoughts, lying, cheating,
thievery or illicit sex: all or any of these
in small or large measure, that which was
pure is now contaminated. We contami-
nate early on. I recall telling my first
major lie at the age of about four.
It's interesting to compare the relative
contagion of the pure versus the filthy:
How "catching" is each? I submit that it's
a lot easier to "catch dirty" from someone
than it is to cause someone to "catch
clean." The underlying problem is that


none of us is squeakyclean. Scripture
says there is none righteous. So, when
someone only relatively cleaner than
another gets into a relationship with that
other, the superior power of dirt will tend
to flow toward equalization. "Good"
people have been frustrated, sometimes
ruined, by this, for ages.
Then, One came whose righteousness
and purity were so out of this world and
so infinitely powerful that He could
reverse the natural advantage and make
the filthiest catch His clean. He fearlessly
confronted the uncleanness in lepers,
corpses, a poor woman perpetually ostra-
cized, a crooked tax collector and they
caught clean. But I rather think that He
did these visible things to show that He
could also restore purity of soul to the
liar, the murderer, the thief the sexually
impure -to any who would trust in Him.
At last I see that the solution to this
problem is to first see to it that I have
"caught clean" from Him, then put Him
out front as the One I rely upon to help
others do so. Hopefully I may be useful as
an example but not as a cleansing agent.

"Photos, well I'll show
you some photos," bel- DABBLIN
lowed my grandpa after
glancing through my Danie
photography portfolios
from college.
"I've been meaning to show these
to you. They'll probably bore you,
but I you're going to see them any-
way." He left the room, and then
came back with a big cardboard box.
As he took off the lid to the box I
turned on critique mode in my head.
I had been in hours of photo cri-
tiques and now was my chance to
show my grandparents what great
insights about the world of photogra-
phy I had.
How were these pictures cropped?
Did it position the subject in such a
way so as to give it the. greatest
impact? What about the depth of
field, toning, framing and use of
shutter speed?
I had been in my ivory tower of
imagery and it was time that I
descend to show the masses how to
really take a picture.
Grandpa started pulling out fist-
fuls of pictures. Some were black
and white, some hand colored and a
few were genuine color photos.
There were lots of different sizes
and thicknesses. There were snap-
shots of old guys on tractors and
young guys holding babies, pudgy
women in ankle length dresses
standing under trees and little kids
doing what little kids do best, run-
ning around and tumbling down.
The pictures were all old, some
were still in very good shape, but
others had creases and tears, frayed
edges and fading tones. A few had
writing on the back telling who and
when, but the script was from a day
long before me when people prized
their handwriting and wrote letters.
Most of the pictures, however,
weren't what you would call "award
winning." In fact they probably
would have gotten a rousing bashing


IG DANIEL

l Bedell


in my classes for being
"too busy and cluttered."
The angles weren't excit-
ing and the contrast was
mediocre.


Pshhhh, Grandpa this
is photographic garbage.
But, of course, I didn't say that. In
fact, I couldn't get much in at all, not
about the poor choice of angles,
tone, cropping or busyness. I could-
n't get anything in because my
grandparents were going on and on
talking about this aunt and that uncle
and cousin so and so. That was about
the time I decided to stop trying to
critique and just listen.
My grandparents were sifting
through these stacks of pictures,
squinting at them, adjusting their
glasses and then arguing over names,
dates and places.
"That was my old man with his
second car," my grandpa would say.
"What are you talking about? You
guys never had a Chevy then!" said
Grandma.
"That's no Chevy."
"I know a Chevy when I see it,
Jack."
"I worked at a Chevy plant, I think
I would know the difference."
"You worked there for two weeks,
maybe if you could have stuck it out
we would have a nice pension now
like Al Bailey."
Somewhere in between the argu-
ing emerged a sort of history lesson
and the strange thing was that it was
my history. The story of my people
of my clan, my line, my heritage
was sitting there in a cardboard
box. It was a family of farmers, gas
station owners, grocers, house
wives, carpenters, car workers and
much more than I could keep track.
A steady stream of stories came
pouring out of my grandparents. But
now the stories were pictures too.
The names and places that I had
heard them talk about so many times
before began to materialize. It was


an odd feeling, like a novel coming
to life. The idea of all those people
from my grandparents dinner stories
being real flesh and blood was surre-
al. I had heard of these people so
often as we sat around the old wood-
en dining room table in our squeaky
chairs as Grandpa spewed forth
these stories in between bites of
steak and sauerkraut -which
always seemed to find a way to stick
to his face but, they had never
seemed much more than stories.
Slowly it began to sink in that this
was all that was left of most of these
people. All the years, all the work,
all the joy and all the pain they had
put into life had been melted down
to this box of pictures and tapestry of
stories.
I felt my grandparents were trying
to pass on the memories of these
people for me to keep alive. But, it
seemed so much, too much and my
mind wandered away from their
voices as I tried to wrap my mind
around the thought that the faces in
these pictures contained my genes
- they contained me.
We put so much into our lives and
1 think most people hope that things
will be changed because of our exis-
tence. I am sure the people in the box
had the same dreams, hopes and
fears, and it was sobering to think
that in 100 years that could be me in
a scrapbook, box or on a CD.
I think this is where I am sup-
posed to leave you with some deep
thought, challenge you to be remem-
bered or something. But, maybe that
stuff is too often said and not often
done.
Keep your pictures out of the
light, some place cool and when you
take them, for goodness sake don't
cut off their heads. Uncle Bob, get in
closer I can't see you. Jack, put your
hand down. Luna, sit. Now, every-
one say cheese!

cost $25 to attend. A meal is
included in the registration fee.
Pre-registration is required and
may be done by contacting cer-
tified instructor Raymond
Mitchell at (863) 781-3658. .
Refuse To Be A Victim semiL:
nars teach methods to diavdoid
dangerous situations and pre-
vent criminal confrontations.
Experts agree that the most
important factor in surviving a
criminal attack is to have an
overall safety strategy before
you need it. Seminar topics
address personal safety issues
as well as home, automobile,
phone, technological, travel and
personal security. Seminar par-
ticipants are presented with a
variety of common-sense crime
prevention and personal safety
strategies and devices they may
integrate into their daily lives.
Firearm instruction is not
included.
Refuse To Be A Victim was
developed by the women of the
NRA in 1993 in response to
requests from women nation-
wide for crime prevention sem-
inars. In 1997, the program
became co-ed. Since that time,
it has reached tens of thousands
of women and men who have
benefited from the program's
life-saving message. With more
than 2,000 instructors nation-
wide, seminars have been pre-
sented in 49 states and the
District of Columbia.
Many law enforcement and
,crime prevention departments
have had officers certified by


NRA to conduct seminars.
Many other organizations
endorse it. Patrick Harris, exec-
utive director of the VCPA, said
"This course is a valuable tool
that helps crime prevention
officers show people how they
can control their crime risks at
home, work and while travel-
ing, by removing the opportuni-
ties that lead to crime."
"I am especially pleased,"
said Stephanie Henson, NRA
women's programs manager,


"that this seminar has been
underwritten by a grant from
The NRA Foundation Inc. This
will allow numerous men and
women to receive first class
instruction for a very low cost."

SEBRING Saturday afternoon's finale of
the 27th annual Florida Athletic Coaches
Association Baseball All-Star Classic at
Firemen's Field was a perfect representation of
the way the tournament was played out.
A quick spurt of runs by both teams tied the
game 1-1 after the second inning, and then a
complete deficiency of any offense kept it that
way until Dale Brannon's one-out single to cen-
ter field in the bottom of the 10th inning finally
broke the tie to give the West the championship,
2-1.
After Saturday's first game ended in a tie, the
championship game between the North and West
teams looked eerily similar when both squads put
a run on the board early in the game.


The North team's Matt Spath of Flagler Palm
Coast, who went 6-for-7 overall and won team
MVP honors, singled and scored on a Jimmy
Marshall single to center to open the scoring.
The West answered with a run of its own in the
bottom of the second when Clayton Pisani dou-
bled with one out and scored on a Dale Slimick
single.
Fans had to wait eight innings to see any more
scoring when Brannon's drive ended the game.
South 4
East 4
The East scored four unanswered runs in the
sixth inning to recover from a 4-0 defecit and pre-
vent their second loss of the tournament in

Devils romp


over Raiders
By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK --Call it a confidence
builder.
The Avon Park Red Devils will carry a
head of steam into the summer after jump-
ing all over an injury-depleted Crescent
City team in Friday night's spring game at
Joe Franza Stadium, scoring 34 points on
379 yards of offense in the first half and
coasting to a 40-0 win.
The Raiders, who made
AvonPark the Class 2B playoffs last
40 season, were down nine
-'40 starters including three
Crescent City All-State picks from last
O year due to everything
from juunriesj.ihe flu and
.heat ebhalti6n and dressed
just 20 players. Most of the damage was
on the offensive line, where the Raiders
started three freshmen and two sopho-
mores, only one of which had any varsity
experience.
Avon Park coach T.C. Cousins said he
wasn't going to let the Raiders' troubles
take away from his team's pleasing per-
formance.
"We play with people hurt and we're
going to play teams with people hurt," he
said. "We'll tell them they beat a pretty

fourth inning, Beef O'Brady's
reliever Adrian Mireles ended
Perry Ranch's sixth-inning

strikeout to preserve the 11-9

Mireles came on in relief for

briefly after the first inning,
batting around in the fourth and
tallying seven runs on four hits.
Cloninger started the decisive
rally with a double to center

Scott Cantwell drove

Miller an example of what's right with sports


There are so many things wrong in
sports. Whining athletes, steroids, racism,
claims of racism, money, scandal, and on
and on. We know it is there and we have
to hear about it all the time.
But if you watched the Pistons playing
against the Pacers Thusday night, you had
a chance to see all that is right with sports.
There was a tall, skinny 39-year-old with
glistening eyes, waving while patting his
heart as an arena full of fans, teammates,
coaches and the opposition stood and
applauded. They applauded for Reggie


Miller, a guy who has been the epitome of
what is good in sports.
I first got into basketball in the early
1990s when Miller was in his prime, nail-
ing impossible 3-pointers against the
Knicks while Spike Lee looked on in
orange-garbed horror. We set up a basket
in my driveway and I fell in love with the
game.
Our TV faced a big window that looked
out on our carport and driveway. On
Sunday, I would turn on the NBA on
NBC and warm up while they warmed up.


Then I would press my nose to the screen
window and watch from the carport while
dribbling. As soon as the commercials
came on I would run to the driveway and
try to do all the moves I had seen, com-
plete with commentary.
Daniel spins on Ewing, pump-fakes and
lays it up and in! Oh my, he's having a
fantastic game! They just can't stop him!
Then I would run back when I heard the
John Tesh theme song and press my nose
back to the screen to watch again.

Sunrise Rotary tourney
set for Highlands Ridge
SEBRING The 16th
Annual Smith Bamey/Sebring
Sunrise Rotary Golf
Tournament will be held
Saturday, June 4, at Highlands
Ridge North.
The tournament is two-man
best-ball and will begin with an
8 a.m. shotgun start with a gour-
met lunch to follow at

Local qualifying event
for Buick Scramble set
SEBRING Last year's
Buick Scramble qualifying at
Highlands Ridge North was
the biggest in the state. This
year, Tom McClurg is hoping
to set a new record.
Teaming with John Phillips
at Harder Hall, McClurg, the
head pro across the street at
Sebring Muncipal Golf Course,
is looking to send as many as
six local teams to the sectional
qualifying. To do that, both
Municipal and Harder Hall
will host local qualifiers on
Saturday, June 11.
Every seven teams in the
local event means another spot
in the sectional tournament, so
a full field at both courses
would mean a half-dozen local
teams advancing.
Cost is $65 per player for
the tournament, and each
golfer will get a shirt, one
dozen golf balls and a lunch
provided by sponsor Alan Jay
Buick. The rewards get even
better for teams that qualify for
the sectional and national
events.
Each player on the team
must have a certified handicap.

Use Texas rig as storms approach


JEFF CANTWELL/News-Sun
Perry Ranch catcher Nathan Stanley eyes a baserunner after tagging out Robert Komasa of Beef
O'Brady's on Friday.


RALLIES
Continued from 1D
Myers struck out the next
two batters to end the rally, but
his Perry Ranch team trailed
10-6.
Cloninger singled to open the
fifth, stole his way to third and
scored on Robert Komasa's
grounder to the pitcher to raise
the lead to 11-6.
Then things got really inter-
esting.
Greenauer (3-for-3) opened
the top of the sixth with a single
and scored on a single by
Morgan Lott before Ian Munro
walked and Rob Langford's
clutch two-out single ended
game scoring. Mireles fanned
the next batter and Beef
O'Brady's didn't have to bat in


CLASSIC
Continued from 1D
Saturday's first game. Instead,
the game ended in a draw
despite Chris Dominguez's
moon-shot home run, which
was the only homer of the
weekend.
The East scored four runs for
the second consecutive game
and brought no more than four
batters to the plate in nine of the
10 innings. The only exception
was their explosive sixth frame
that tied the game. Cody Neer
led of with his first hit of the
tournament to right and was fol-
lowed b a Sean Gleason single.
After Sebring's Ryan Williams
was called upon to pinch run,
both players came-in to score
when team MVP J.T. Wise of
Apopka doubled to the wall.
Williams came into the game
later in the inning as a hitter and
was beaned with the bases
loaded to make it 4-3 before
Shane Ynclan walked with the
bases still swollen, scoring
Wise to end the scoring.
West 9
East 4
Ryan Williams and Kiko
Vazquez both walked during
Friday's second game. And they
did it together.
In front of a still crowd at
Firemen's Field during the mid-
die of the ninth inning, both
Sebring High School seniors
were presented their diplomas
after making the decision to
skip graduation in favor of par-
ticipating in the event. That
was the highlight of the night
for the East team, however, in a
9-4 loss to the West.
Friday night was the final
high school game for Hardee
All-Star Calvin Brutus, who
skipped Saturday's game to
attend graduation. Brutus
tossed three innings, striking


the bottom half of the inning.
After getting six walks in the
top of the second inning and
Dustin Whitmire's single and a
Beef O'Brady's error, Perry
Ranch held a 4-1 lead.
Velazquez singled and came
home on Komasa's double to
right field to close to 4-2.
Komasa was later nailed
attempting to score, as Perry
Ranch catcher Nathan Stanley
blocked the plate and got the
tag down in time for the second
out in the second inning.
Parmalee, who doubled and
scored on an error off the bat of
Cloninger in the first inning to
make it a 1-0 Beef lead, walked
and scored on a single by
Mireles in the third to close to
4-3.
Stanley opened the top of the
fourth with a hot smash to the


fence in the left-center field gap
for a standup double, Myers
singled and both scored on two
consecutive errors by Beef
O'Brady's. Mireles went on to
strike out the side to end the
threat with Perry Ranch up 6-3.
Greenauer, who struck out five
batters over the first three
innings, was moved to first base
and Beef O'Brady's responded
by batting around.
Mireles picked up the victory
in relief, giving up five runs
(one earned run) on six hits
while striking out nine. For the
winners, Parmalee, Cloninger
and Velazquez each had two
hits. For Perry Ranch, Myers
and Greenauer both had three
hits apiece. Whitmire finished
2-for-4, though the hardest shot
of the game was Stanley's two-
bagger in the fourth.

Field.


out five.
The West offense was hot
basically every inning and start-
ed with a set of runs to go up 3-
0. Armwood's speedy R.J.
Anderson reached on an infield
single to start the game and,
after a John Matulia walk,
Anderson came in to score
when Casey Karppe got his
only hit of the game. Kyle Mills
followed up with a two-run sin-
gle.
Mills finished the day as the
top hitter, going 3-for-3 with 3
RBI.
The third hit came in sixth
frame on a single to score
Shawn Kell from second.
Carlos Armstrong followed up
with an RBI triple.
George Jenkins outfielder
Will Cherry also tripled and
scored in the seventh for the
East to make it 9-4, scoring on a
Corey Bevis sacrifice ground-
out.
North 4
South 3
It only took the North squad
one inning to score two runs
Friday afternoon. It took them


10 more to do it again.
But one inning short of the
game being decided on a coin-
flip, Eric Thomas finally scored
the fourth run for his team for a
4-3 win to bring a conclusion to
the three-and-a-half hour, 11-
inning marathon against the
South in the first game on
Friday.
Thomas was given the right
to start on second base when the
inning opened as part of the
FACA rules when handling
extra-inning affairs, and scored
relatively easily when a
grounder to short resulted in a
throwing error.
The senior from Gainesville-
Buchholz also picked up the
win in relief, taking the ball in
the eighth inning after the com-
bination of Drew Jackson,
Glenn Desposito, Shane Funk
and Jimmy Marshall scattered
eight hits over seven innings,
striking out 11 batters to put
Thomas in good position for the
save.But with the score 3-2 in
the final inning of regulation,
Hialeah's Luis Exposito tied the
game with a sacrifice fly to
score Chris Dominguez.


If you have lived here very long, you know
how wicked our summertime thunderstorms can
be. During the hot and sticky days when you are
bass fishing on your favorite lake and the skies
begin to look threatening, it is probably a good
idea to head for shore.
And while I like to think that I am really safe-
ty minded, I sometimes fail to follow my own
advice.
Usually, just ahead of threatening weather, the
bass will start feeding. I don't know what turns
them on ahead of a storm, but some say they
need to gorge themselves in case of prolonged
bad weather. When those swirls the tell-tale
signs of feeding bass begin appearing on the
surface, I am tempted to stay just a little longer.
I know I should get off the
lake, but I like top-water
fishing and the bass seem
willing. They are much
more likely to hit surface
baits now.
This is a good time to go
to a larger bait to entice the
big bass that sometimes lurk
just below the ones breaking
OUTDOORS the surface. Throw a large
Rapala or Zara Spook into
Lloyd Jones the feeding area and work it
with a lot of splash to coax
the larger fish to the surface.
Most any noisy top-water bait will work. A shal-
low runner worked just a couple of feet deep
can put that bigger bass in your livewell.
But don't get too engrossed in watching those
swirls and forget about the weather. Get off the
lake before that thunderstorm moves in.
Getting back to good weather, I like worm
fishing, and fishing early mornings around the
cattails and bullrushes can be a lot of fun.
Plastic worms are undoubtedly the top bass lure
and have been so for more than two decades. As
the morning wears on and the bass move to
deeper water, the worm is still the best bet for
filling a stringer.
I sometimes wonder why a bass will hit a
plastic worm. It resembles a night crawler, but
night crawlers live on land and not in the fish's


LLOYD JONES/News-Sun
An example of the Texas Rig with a bullet sinker
pegged to the worm head.

domain. How did he develop such a liking for
an imitation night crawler?
There are several ways to fish a plastic worm.
The Texas rig and Carolina rig are equally pro-
ductive. It depends on the depth you are fishing
and the cover present. With the Texas rig, you
can keep the worm on the.bottom, retrieving it
slowly or bouncing it along.
Use 8- to 10-pound line in deep, clear water
and go as high as 20-pound line in dense cover
to prevent line breakage. The new Spider Wire
lines are great for this type of worming. Pegging
a bullet sinker at the head of the worm will keep
the sinker from slipping. Some fellows allow the
sinker to slide up and down the line, giving the
worm better action.
On some days a slow retrieve works best and
other days the bass tend to hit a faster retrieve.
Whichever works, remember to watch for the hit
as the worm is falling when using the bottom-
bumping method. At other times, you will have
to let the worm lie on the bottom for several
seconds before starting to raise and lower you
rod, hopping the worm along the bottom.
We'll discuss the Carolina rig in another col-
umn. The Carolina rig allows the worm to float
high off the bottom. It too, will catch a lot of
bass when used in the right place at the right
time.
Here's wishing you a good day fishing. Play
it safe and watch out for bad weather. Don't let
it catch you out on the water.

News-Sun, Sunday, May 22, 2005


MILLER
Continued from 1D
My dad was from Michigan,
so I was required to hate the
Bulls. But since the Pistons
were past their glory, I decided
to be a Pacers fan.
Daniel brings the ball up
the court, passes to Smits on
the low block, Reggie curls
around, Smits out to Reggie,
Daniel cuts down the lane,
Reggie to Daniel, score!
I remember running around
like crazy, yelling for my dad
to come see when Reggie
made eight points in like nine
seconds to beat the Knicks in a
playoff game. It is still proba-
bly the most fantastic come-
back I had ever seen.
And back outside I ran.
Mark Jackson at the top of
the key, finds Rose on the
wing, Rose into Smits, Smits
turns and fires, misses, Dale
Davis gets the rebound goes
up, misses, Antonio Davis with
another try ... No! Bedell
grabs and jams it home! You
just can't say enough about his
heart, Bill!
Reggie to me was the ulti-
mate, though. He was skinny,
like me. He never gave up,
like me. He could hit threes
while falling sideways ... not
like me, but I was working on
it. He seemed to always be a
good sportsman, sometimes
like me.
But, best of all, he was
funny and he had the coolest
sweatbands! He had two big
ones on his wrists and then lit-
tle finger sweat bands.
I couldn't find the finger
ones in the store, but I found
the big, long wrist ones and
bought them and expected my
3-point shooting to take off
from there. It never did.
To fix the fact that my
friends and I were all still
midgets, we took my mini
hoop from when I was even
more of a midget and bungeed
it about six or seven feet up-on
a tree next to the driveway.
That way we could post up,
tomahawk dunk and hit the
Reggie three.
Bedell guarded tightly by
Starks, he rolls around a pick
from Davis, he's open on the
wing ... Nothing but net!
Bedell wins the game!
Watching Miller pour in 27
points on Thursday, it felt like
the magic of those days was
back.
Sure, maybe that is pathetic,
but that is what sports are.
There really is just leather and
metal, pigskin and grass, wood
and a ball, but somehow, it
also has some magic, bor out
of the excitement and sweat
and kept stored in the land of
memories and stories to be '
shared with total strangers and
old friends.
Reggie Miller is what is
good in sports and seeing him
leave is sad. But thanks so
much, Reggie, for the memo-
ries, the excitement and for
showing why sports are worth
coming back to.
Reggie to Bedell, four sec-
onds, Bedell back to Reggie,
three seconds, Reggie pump
fakes against Starks, two sec-
onds, Reggie elevates, one sec-
ond, lets it fly from the right
corner.. Swish! I can't believe
it! It's all over, ladies and gen-
tlemen! It's all over! Reggie
has done it again!

Daniel Bedell is a News-Sun cor-
respondent.

DEVILS
Continued from ID
The Devils marched 70 yards to open the
game, scoring on a 30-yard pass from Hill to Bo
Comadore, and a Kaneef Caldwell 21-yard run
early in the second quarter polished off a 93-yard
drive and made it 14-0.
The defense got into the scoring act when
Rafael Johnson and Leroy Sanders spun Crescent
City quarterback Louis Haines around in the mid-
dle of a pass, sending the ball sailing 30 yards
back into the end zone where Alex Caldwell
picked it up for the easiest touchdown of the
night and a 21-0 lead.
Scoring runs of 11 yards from Lee Albritton
and 20 yards from T.J. Gordon sent the Devils
into halftime with a 34-point lead, and English
capped the night with a 10-yard scamper to the
end zone in the fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, the Raiders could get nothing
going, even in the second half against the Red
Devils' junior varsity defense, finishing with
minus-20 total yards as the Devils had their way
at the line of scrimmage.
Crescent City managed just two first downs -
one on a penalty and never drove the ball past
their own 41 despite starting every drive after a
Devil score at the 30-yard line.
"I'm thrilled with our defense," Cousins said.
"They did a great job. Offensively, we did what
we wanted to do. We scored points, we threw the
ball well and we ran the ball well. The young kids
came in an played hard and scored and kept them
scoreless.
"It was pleasing to watch, that's for sure."

take anything away from Lake
Placid."
The Brahmans top two quar-
terbacks are away playing in
the state baseball tournament,
and though Virgil Barrett con-
nected on five of nine pass
attempts, their offense had
problems.
"That's a huge defensive
line, and probably one of the
better ones we'll face, as far as
what I've seen," Dresser said.
"I was just hoping we could get
through those little linebackers,
but we couldn't. (Maddox) is
doing a good job."
Defensive coordinator Jason
Holden's unit gave up only 103
total yards, and its only major
lapse came on a broken play in
the third quarter, when Barrett
scooped up a fumble and threw,
to Jarenn Smith for a 27-yard
touchdown on third-and-23.
"We had more hitting tonight
than we had all last year,"
Maddox said. "And that's
because for the last four weeks
we've hit, anywhere from 25
minutes to 45 minutes a day,
just tackling stations, rotating,
working on hitting."
In contrast, the Green
Dragons have only worked on
offense for four days, but even
so, they were able to mount a
41-yard scoring drive in the
second quarter, one that was
capped by a 10-yard touchdown
strike from Quay Crenshaw to
fullback Brent Bierman, and
the Alfredo Lopez kick put the
Dragons on top 7-0.
Bierman, who broke out with
a 235-yard rushing game
against Moore Haven last sea-
son, led the Dragons in rushing
again Friday with 47 yards on
11 carries, most of which came


in the first half.
"Brent is a step quicker, and
a little grittier than anybody
else we've had, even last year,"
Maddox said. "The problem
with Brent is we've got to get
him in shape and keep him
healthy. He's had some shoul-
der problems, he's had ankle
problems, but we've got to get
him into enough shape that we
can keep him in the game all
the time."
Maddox, however, will look
to starting tailback Rashaad
Brown, a rising soiiphimore
who had 34 yards on 10 carries
Friday, as his meal ticket.
"You'll be hearing his name
a lot. He'll either be my pay-
check or my pink slip,"
Maddox said. "I think he'll be a
paycheck. I think he's one we'll
see play on Saturday later on."
He was handed the ball by
two quarterbacks, Crenshaw
and George Rasmussen, before
Conlin Veley came in with a
host of younger players in the
fourth quarter who helped set
up Lopez for a 34-yard field
goal with 2:04 to go.
"Quay understands he and
George can do different
things," Maddox said, stopping
short of naming a starter, and
adding that Veley, too, could be
in the mix.
Crenshaw's touchdown was
the only completed pass of the
night for the run-oriented
Dragons, who racked up 135
yards on 42 carries.
Yet Maddox will see to it that
the effort will be put forth to
correct uch mistakes this sum-
mer.
"The price of playing foot-
ball has gone up substantially in
the last year," he said, having
made spring football an invita-
tion-only affair. "Now all of a
sudden, it's an honor to play
football."
