SEBRING Gulfstream
Natural Gas L.L.C. will start
adding to Highlands County
coffers right away.
The natural gas pipeline,
which has 40 miles buried in
the county, will add about $1
million per mile to the county
tax roll, said Property
Appraiser Raymond McIntyre.
His staff is still making an
assessment on the pipeline and
its stations, but so far, it looks
to be worth $40 million. The
county will use that number to
determine the amount


i~gi '-W'(- j ~s Lq;
a r" r '::':.~.... I~ ~ ;--~~k


Tangible property values for

Progress Energy Florida is $81.1,

for Sprint it is $45.6


Gulfstream pays in personal
tangible property tax to the
county commission, The
School Board of Highlands
County and the two water
management districts.
McIntyre is not sure how
long it will hold that value.
The pipe is stainless steel
wrapped in rubber and buried
underground. He's told the
pipe is meant to last 100 years,


so he'll have to figure out the
depreciation of that pipe over
the course of that time. It will
be $40 million or more for the
first year. Each year after-
wards, it will be worth less
money.
As tangible property values
go, the pipeline is still less
than those owned locally by
Progress Energy Florida, $81.1
million, or by Sprint, with


$45.6 million.
Other utilities and commu-
nications companies' tangible
property lists as follows:
Tampa Electric Company,
$25.8 million;
Glades Electric
Cooperative, $24.3 million;
Comcast Cable, $6.3 mil-
lion; and
Florida Power and Light,
$3.4 million.
These companies report a
lump sum on personal tangible
property, not the miles of con-
duit and cable, McIntyre said,
so he was not able to give a
cost per mile.

SEBRING Police are on
the lookout for 15-year-old
Taletha Barksdale. When last
seen, the Sebring High School
student was on her bicycle and
was with 14-year-old Nicole
Stickle.
Barksdale has been missing
since 5 p.m. Wednesday. Police
have issued an order to other
agencies to be on the lookout
for the girl, although she is not
listed as endangered and foul
play is not suspected.
When last seen, Barksdale
was wearing brown shorts, a
white tank top and a striped
bikini top.
Police reports indicate the
girl has gone missing in the
past.
Anybody with any informa-
tion is asked to call the Sebring
Police Department at 471-

Officials concerned
about road's effect
on HRMC
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Getting in and
out of Highlands Regional
Medical Center may get a lot
harder, or a lot easier, depend-
ing on how the county builds
Sebring Parkway Phase 2.
However, widening
Highlands Avenue into a
Parkway will require the county
to gain right of way from the
land the hospital sits on.
Health Management
Associates leases that property
from the Highlands County
Hospital Taxing District, the
entity that owns the land and
ran the hospital until about 20
years ago.
Gary McGehee, the modera-
tor of the HMA board, said
Naples-based HMA entered
into an agreement with the dis-
trict and has since made
improvements on the property,
including an outpatient clinic
on the west side of the building.
The clinic parking could get
removed by the Parkway,
according to the Sebring
Parkway plans, which include a
concrete median strip reaching
100 yards from the intersection
with U.S. 27, just to the north-
ern driveway of the new
Veteran's Clinic. It would


HIGHLANDS COUNTY ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
When Highlands County finishes building Sebring Parkway, Phase 2 as currently planned the four-lane road and center turn lane will
take away Highlands Regional Medical Center's staff and patient parking areas along Highlands Avenue and change the main entrance to
right-turn only. Red dashed lines on plans from the Highlands County Engineering Department show where the road right of way is now.
Yellow lines show how far out it will widen. Blue lines show where the traffic lanes will cross intersections and driveways. County Engineer
Ramon Gavarrete and Davis S. Wilkison, vice president of Wilson Miller engineering in Fort Myers, have agreed to work together on a mas-
ter plan for traffic flow in and out of the hospital. This may please the county; Health Management Associates, which operates the hospital,
and the Highlands County Hospital Taxing District, which owns the land and building.


change the hospital's main
entrance and some of the doc-
tor's facilities on the west side
of the road to right-turn only.
.County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said there will be a.
five-lane section beyond the
concrete median to allow traffic
to turn left into other driveways.
Even so, he met with Linda
Harrison, chief executive offi-


cer of Health Management
Associates, and David S.
Wilkison, vice president of
Wilson Miller, a planning
design and engineering firm out
of Fort Myers Thursday to talk
about coordinating the Parkway
with the hospital's master plan.
"They need improvements
anyway," Gavarrete said.
So far, he and Wilkison


haven't agreed 100 percent on a
new master plan with access
points, but Gavarrete said
Thursday was a "productive
meeting."
Harrison told the taxing dis-
trict board Thursday she wants
to create a task force to discuss
the Parkway and possible solu-
tions.
Board chairman Selvin


McGahee said the district has a
responsibility to the taxpayers
to maintain a safe facility. Bert
Harris III, attorney to the board,
said the Parkway's main pur-
pose is to move traffic safely.
"Since you (HMA) are about
to reconfigure parking," Harris
said, "I think the concerns are
manageable. This is about good

Schuessler steps down as art league's manager


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING After a little more than
a year as the administrative manager at
the Highlands Art League, Mary
Schuessler has decided to step down -
or perhaps, step over.
Although the Highlands Art League's
executive board accepted her resignation
at the Tuesday night meeting, Schuessler
said it would definitely not be the end of
the road for her and the organization.
"I've requested to stay on part time to
handle the newsletter and the accounting
for the art league," she said. "I truly
believe in the art league."
Schuessler's last day on the job as
administrative manager is scheduled to
be June 7.


"It was a hard decision," she said.
Although she was not there for the
opening of the Yellow House in the
Artists Village adjacent to the Allen
Altvater Cultural Complex, Schuessler
was responsible for many of the events
that have been held there.
"We did the Christmas party, the
'Accessories' show and the 'Motorsports
Retrospective' during the races," she
said. "We also had one of the most suc-
cessful student art shows we have ever
had."
Schuessler also was part of the newest
incarnation of the annual November
Highlands Art League's Fine Arts and
Crafts Show, which was titled the 12
Hours of Art and Community.
Among her achievements, Schuessler


pointed to a drive to recruit and train vol-
unteers.
"We were able to utilize their
strengths and skills," she said.
There has been an increase in the
membership ranks as well as those in the
Legacy Club.
Like her predecessor, Schuessler said
the workload was her biggest challenge.
There were many duties in addition to
managing the day-to-day operations of
the museum and the art league.
"That's why I'd like to stay on and
help in some of those areas," she said.
Schuessler plans to go back into
advertising and marketing by opening up
her own firm.
"I have clients who have requested
my services so I'm going to go back to


that and work part time at the art
league," she said.
Schuessler declined to name her cus-
tomers but did say some were local and
others were out of state. She said her
services would cover everything from
the electronic and print media to doing
trade shows.
In the meantime, Highlands Art
League President Marvin Kahn said he
would appoint a committee to determine
how the administrative manager's post
might be filled.
"I'm appointing a committee to look
at her proposal and consider any other
options we have, and make the best deci-
sion we can."
A date for that committee meeting has
not yet been set.

School board

gets special

recognition
SEBRING The
School Board of Highlands
County was recently noti-
fied by the chief executive
officer of the Council on
Accreditation and School
Improvement of the
Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools to
receive special recognition
as a school district that has
all eligible elementary,
middle and secondary
schools accredited. The
district is considered a
"2004-05" Super System
for Quality Schools and
was congratulated for its
"... schools' accreditation
accomplishments and con-
tinued success in providing
educational opportunities
for the young people it
serves."
For 2004-05, out of 521
school districts in the 11-
state region that qualified
I, this recognitpni 'lonida
- had 38 school districts that
qualified for this special
recognition. Highlands
County was one of 38.
Accreditation helps
schools improve teaching
and student learning
through a systematic
process of self-analysis in
terms of standards.

SEBRING While the city
of Avon Park continues to look
at the possibility of a special
master or magistrate to speed
that city's code enforcement
cases, the city of Sebring is
reorganizing their code enforce-
ment staff and moving them.
Council members have voted
to move code enforcement out
of the building department and
under the auspices of the
Sebring Police Department.
As part of the new arrange-
ment, code enforcement officer
Bob Baker will be moving to
the Sebring Police Department
and a new code enforcement
officer will be hired.
They will work directly
under Sebring Police
Commander Steve Carr.


Council members felt that
due to pending annexation, cou-
pled with the increase in build-
ing permits, the building
department already is swamped
with work.
Permitting Specialist Lane
Padelford will stay at Sebring
City Hall with Building Official
Jim Jacobs. Current code
enforcement officer Lee Tolar
will stay at the building depart-
ment as an assistant for Jacobs.
The code enforcement office
originally was designed as a
separate entity, however, it was
merged with the building
department several years ago.
The most current move came
at the behest of Sebring City
Councilman Buddy Whitlock
who apparently was looking for
a more aggressive code
enforcement activity.


"As Yogi Berra said, 'This is
like deja vi all over again,' "
Sebring Police Chief Tom,
Dettman told Sebring City
Council members in discussing
the realignment.
Dettman underwent a similar
process in the early 1990s when
he was the deputy chief of
police in charge of administra-
tion in Boynton Beach.
He said the move looks to be
nearly identical to the situation
there.
"The only difference is that
back then we did it almost all
on paper, now of course it is
almost all on computer," he
said. "My only concern is the
software transition program."
However, Dettman said that
is something that is being
ironed out by the city's infor-
mation technology specialist.


Dettman said moving the
operation under Carr is yet
another parallel.
"That's another thing that
was like Boynton Beach, I'm
now the chief but Commander
Carr has about the same posi-
tion I had back then," Dettman
said.
He said the initial, push
would be to eliminate as many
junk cars and overgrown lots as
possible.
Uniformed officers also will
continue to make reports to
code enforcement officers
about violations.
In fact, the code enforcement
department will get uniforms
and marked cars of their own.
"We're going to get them
shirts identifying them as code
enforcement officers nice
polo shirts like our summer uni-


forms," he said. "And we'll get
decals for their cars."

Dettman said the code
enforcement effort should have
benefits extending beyond the
cosmetic appearance of the city.
"The end result should be a
reduction in crime. You see,
criminals don't like to hang
around nice, neat areas," he
said. "You don't see a lot of
them hanging around on
Lakeview Drive and making
drug deals. They'd stick out like
a sore thumb."

Although the officers are
being moved to a new depart-
ment, the enforcement process
will not change. Those property
owners that have been cited will
go before the city's code
enforcement board for action.

JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
On Wednesday, the DeSoto City Volunteer Fire Department cordoned off a large area of the U.S. 98
Shell station parking lot in Sebring because it was covered in more than 100 gallons of diesel fuel. A bust-
ed drive shaft on an out-of-state semitrailer cut a fuel line and drained one of its side tanks. Some of the
fuel tracked onto U.S. 98, and the Department of Transportation was called to clean it up. Parking lot
cleanup, however, will fall to the driver's insurance and the owners of the store.

Sebring groups preparing for old-fashioned Fourth


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It is getting
down to crunch time for the
Sebring Jaycees and the We the
People for an Old-Fashioned
Fourth of July committee.
Representatives of the groups
met at the Yellow House at the
Artists Village Monday to begin
to firm up plans.
They set an agenda for pic-
nic-style games, food vendors
and entertainment, now they are
looking for clubs, groups and


organizations that might be
interested in sponsoring some
of the events or manning differ-
ent games as fund-raisers.
"I have just mailed out 30 let-
ters to different groups to see if
they would like to have some
kind of food concession," said
Sebring Mayor George
Hensley, who has agreed to
oversee that portion of the
event.
The plan is to have food, fun
and activities at and around the
Allen Altvater Cultural


Complex from 10 a.m. until 5
p.m. It would begin with a flag-
raising ceremony to be conduct-
ed by a local veterans group and
wind up with a Miss
Firecracker pageant that would
be held beginning around 5:30
p.m. on stage at the Highlands
Little Theatre's Lakeside
Playhouse.
Some of the events are
already mapped out. Among
other things, the Highlands Art
League will oversee a chalk art
event, the Young Professionals


will take care of the beauty pag-
eant, Highlands Little Theatre
will present its annual patriotic
revue and the Jaycees have
been out soliciting money for
the annual pyrotechnics display.
Organizers now are working
on finding groups interested in
administrating picnic-style
games such as sack races, three-
legged races or a tug of war.
Organizers also are arranging
for a dunk tank that could be a
money maker for a group will-
ing to staff it for the day.


George Henry, also known in
his disc jockey personae as "DJ
Geo," has agreed to host a
limbo contest and a hula hoop
contest. In addition to his own
"Party Machine," he has agreed
to take charge of other enter-
tainment for singers or groups
who might like to do a set or
two.
There was discussion about
contacting some of the previous
Heartland Idol and Junior Idol
contestants to perform during
the 'day as featured entertainers.


The idea is to try and involve
as much of the community as
possible in the event, which is
being designed to reflect an
"old-fashioned" Independence
Day by the shores of Lake
Jackson.

Those interested in working
with the games may call Patsy
Cross at 471-3480, food ven-
dors may call Hensley at 385-
5171 and folks who would like
to provide entertainment may
call Henry at 241-1447.

SEBRING Every day,
pickers get up at 3:30-4 a.m.
and ride out to the groves and
fields to harvest citrus and veg-
etables, said Jesus Aguirre of
Fascination Drive in Lake
Placid.
Every night, they get home at
roughly 7 p.m. By that time,
most businesses are closed in
Lake Placid. Without trans-
portation, they can't get into
town to buy groceries, either.
Many of them hire taxis, but
at a $7-$8 trip from Sun 'N

eats up much of what they've
earned.
"We pick fruits and vegeta-

"It would be nice to have these
kinds of facilities as a help to

Local grove, nursery show latest citrus canker finds


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING More of the
virulent Asian strain of citrus
canker may have been found in
Highlands County.
This time it is in the south
end of the county. One find was
at the Hickory Branch Nursery
in the Venus area, the other at
the Bloomberg grove south of
Lake Placid, which is owned by
Ben Hill Griffin.
The nursery is owned by
Florida's Natural Growers in
Lake Placid. They are the
nation's third largest citrus juice
processor.
There have been 66 positive
trees found at the nursery to
date. The infection appears to
be six to nine months old.
The nursery has more than a
quarter million young trees. It
mostly supplies growers in
southern Florida.
Figures compiled by the
Florida Division of Plant
Industry showed about 42,000
trees have gone from the nurs-
ery to 36 different entities -
some of which are in Highlands
County in the past six to nine
months.
The closest infection is at the
Southern Farms groves, which
is about 12 miles away.
Southern Farms has been
deeply troubled with the dis-
ease.


That operation covers about
5,800 acres and canker has been
found there on a recurring basis.
Owners already have pushed
over 50-100 acres of trees.
Just as there has only been
one positive tree found in the
Lake Letta grove near Avon
Park, at least one tree also
reportedly has been identified at
the BHG Bloomberg grove.
Highlands County Citrus
Growers Association Executive
Director Ray Royce spent much
of Thursday at the Citrus
Canker Technical Advisory
Committee Meeting, in Lake
Alfred.
He said it had not yet been
determined if all of the trees
that came out of the Hickory'
Branch Nursery will have to be
destroyed.
Royce reported that since
Aug. 12 of last year, it has been
determined that there, were
4,177 acres due to be destroyed
due to canker. As of May 20,
Royce said that process was
about two-thirds complete.
Before the Ben Hill Griffin
find, 594,086 trees were sched-
uled to have been removed due
to canker in Highlands County.
Royce said that one bright
spot is the fact that no dooryard
citrus citrus trees grown in
residential areas had been
located in Highlands County to
date.

Downtown Sebring Heritage
Day.
Sam Corson, organizer of the
celebration, said the events
would include face painting by
the Highlands Art League,
stamping. i, scrapbooking
Demonstrationss; by Jessica
Nunez from the Close to My
Heart shop and a free rock
climbing wall.
Also planned for the day are
guided walking tours of the
National Register Historic
District as well as the formal
dedication of the Hainz
Building by the Sebring
Historic Preservation
Commission.
"We're also going to have
the inaugural 'Downtown
Spelling Bee,' Corson said.
"That will be sponsored by the
Sebring Rotary with prizes of
more than $500 in U.S. savings
bonds."
Another game, dubbed the
"Downtown Jackpot," also will
be unveiled. That's a new
scratch off game sponsored by
the DMPA. Corson said thou-
sands of dollars in prizes will
be given away "while supplies
of the scratch off cards last."
As part of the program, par-
ticipants will be able to win
prizes from any of the partici-
pating shops and.restaurants.
"Every card can be filled out
and entered in the grand prize
drawing and no purchase neces-
sary," he said.
Highlands Art League mem-
bers also will be on hand for the
day's activities. They will be
assisting parents and guardians
to apply for scholarships avail-
able for Highlands Art League's
Summer Art Camp. That is
scheduled to begin June 13 and


will run through July 29.
"They will take a break for
the week of July 4," Corson
said.
The camp features classes on
sculpture, one-stroke painting,
clay and ceramics, furniture
painting, themed arts classes
with pets and drama work-
shops.
Art league members say they
hope to have 200 children par-
ticipate in the camp this sum-
mer.

Since Aug. 12, 2,177,351
trees were scheduled to be
destroyed statewide. That trans-
lates to 17,495 acres of groves.
"And that doesn't include the
most recent stuff or what's been
found on the coast," he said.
It's not over yet. Royce
revealed that there are 1,000
trees per day being removed
from Broward, Miami-Dade
and Palm Beach counties.
'They figure if they stay on
the same pace it will take them
until June 30 of next year to get
rid of what they need to," he
said.
Royce said that a canker edu-
cation and decontamination
summit is being planned for
Highlands County in early June.
No official date and time has
yet been set.
Florida Division of Plant
Industry spokeswoman Denise
Feiber said the canker discov-
ery comes at a bad time.
"It's the warm, wet weather
that is the most conducive to the
disease spreading and thriving
and we're entering that season,"
she said. "We were hoping to
get everything in those outlying

The disease had been con-
fined primarily to the Miami-
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach


county areas. However, due to
court battles, especially, with
homeowners, the eradication
process was slowed.

Junior Livestock Committee gets compliance letter


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Junior
Livestock Committee the
group that oversees the live-
stock competition at the annual
Highlands County Fair has
received a notice of an investi-
gation by the Bureau of
Compliance Monitoring of the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services.
The bureau is looking into a
report that the pesticide Triad II
Disinfectant Cleaner had been
used to treat hogs while they
were being weighed for a com-
petition/exhibit at the
Highlands County Fair.
According to the letter, it was
on Oct. 31 last year that Sarah
Childs and Michael Milicvuc
treated approximately 129 hogs
with the Triad H solution.
."The Triad II Disinfectant
Cleaner product label does not
contain directions for use'on

hogs or other livestock," said
Craig T. Bryant, environmental
manager of the pesticide com-
pliance section, in his letter to
the committee.
According to the letter, the
use was "inconsistent with its
label and unlawful under
Section 487.031 (10) of Florida
Statutes." He further cautioned
that violations of the law could
be subject to an administrative
action and fines of up to
$10,000.
However, it does not appear
that either of those options will
happen.
"That's considered a prior
violation," explained
Compliance Monitoring Bureau
Chief Dale Dubberly. "What
we'll end up doing. is re-
inspecting the livestock com-
mittee there as a follow up to
make sure they are in compli-
ance."


He said that means inspectors
from the state office will drop
by during next year's event to
make sure that the product is
not used again and that the
committee has found another
product that is registered.
"If we come back and deter-
mine they are not in compli-
ance, they will step the enforce-
ment action up," he said.
The May 12 letter will stay in
the committee's file for three
years. If they go without com-
mitting any other infractions, it
will be expunged from the
record.
He said this kind of infrac-
tion does not happen often.
Dubberly said the product
did not have a detrimental
effect either on the livestock or
the children that were showing
the animals.
According to the Johnson


Wax professional Web site,
Triad II is classified as a quater-
nary formula that cleans, disin-
fects and deodorizes hard, non-
porous environmental surfaces.
It is formulated for use in
hospitals, nursing homes,
schools, and other public facili-
ties.
The material data safety
sheet for the product indicates it
is classified as corrosive and
may cause permanent damage.
That includes irritation and
corrosive effects to the nose
throat and respiratory tracts if
inhaled, bums to mouth, throat
and stomach if ingested and
possible blindness if it gets into
a person's eyes.
The manufacturer also rec-
ommends that people who
come into direct contact with
the solution:flush the area arind
get medical attention.

Lake Placid's 'Bat Man' builds homes for bats


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID
intrigued by bats after reading
a magazine article describing
the famous bat colony that
lives under the Congress Avenue bridge
in Austin, Texas. More than 1.5 million
bats take flight at dusk each night from
March through October, attracting
hordes of tourist who gather to view the
greatest bat show on earth.
At first, the growing colony alarmed
residents who called for their eradica-
tion, but Bat Conservation International
intervened. The non-profit group pro-
tects bats and their habitats around the
world.
Members educated the residents of
Austin as to the gentle nature of bats
and their benefit to the farms of central
Texas. Primarily, they eat 10,000 to
30,000 pounds of insects each night.
Hofstetter began reading everything
he could find about bats. He learned
that bats are beneficial to the ecology.
He discovered that all of the supersti-
tions about bats are untrue. He joined
BCI and began receiving their newslet-
ters.
"Once you get to know bats, you
really like them," he declares. "They
are underdogs. I have a soft spot for
underdogs."
Time to invite the bats
In 1999, Hofstetter purchased a home
in Lake Placid on three acres nestled
among tall pines with palmetto and nat-
ural foliage. Two ponds back of the
house attract birds and wildlife but also
provide water for mosquitoes to breed.
Because he knew that bats feast on
mosquitoes, he decided his property
might be ideal for creating a bat habitat.
Working from a handbook and a
"general idea," Hofstetter built his first
bat house that year and erected it on an
18-foot pole well away from his house.
"You need to put it in a a place that
is safe for them to have babies," he
advises. "I caulked and painted it,
because it has to be water and air tight,
except for the vents."
Hofstetter then left for Key Largo,
where he worked as a chef for a private
club during the winter season. When he
returned to Lake Placid in the spring of
2000, he was delighted to discover that
bats were roosting in his new bat house.

Egyptian fruit bats housed in a colony at Peace River Refuge and Ranch in Zolfo
Springs. A mother bat can find and nurse her pup even in huge colonies where millions
of babies cluster up to 500 per square foot.


He pitched a hammock between two
trees nearby and enjoyed watching their
flights to and from the house at sunrise
and nightfall.
"I have been able to count as many
as 180 bats when they come out," he
says. "I can clearly see them against the
moon."
Hofstetter estimates that he now has
about 500 in his colony and he has
observed dozens of the young born
here. He now has a total of three bat
houses on his property and has a fourth
ready to raise this fall.
Building a bat house
According to research by Bat
Conservation International, of the 2,000
bat houses that hae been biiil in the
U.S. and monitored since 1992, one-
third of the houses have been occupied
the first year. Over time, participants
are achieving better than 80 percent
success.
Surprisingly, bats prefer a sunny
location. In "America's Neighborhood
Bats," Dr. Merlin Tuttle, founder and
science director of BCI, wrote that all
of the houses that failed to attract bats


were located on the trunks of shade
trees.
Tuttle also recommends that all bat
houses be mounted at least 10 feet
above ground; 15 to 25 feet is better.
Bats find houses on poles or buildings
twice as fast as those mounted on trees.
Carefully caulked and painted houses
are twice as successful as unpainted
houses. "Bats, like people, prefer homes
without drafts or leaks," Tuttle writes.
Hofstetter's Lake Placid residents are
Mexican free-tailed bats, among the
most abundant bats in North America.
These tiny bats have a body mass of
about half an ounce and are the smallest
molossid species (microbats) in the
United States. Their short, dense fur is
grayish-brov, n .ibo\L' aiid liglcer co'l-
ored below. While the bats in western
states migrate to and from Mexico, the
eastern populations do not migrate.
"The bat is the only mammal that can
fly," Hofstetter points out. "They fly in
the dark and never bump into any-
thing," he says.
"There have been experiments where
scientists have strung wires as fine as
human hairs throughout a cave and

Lake Placid holds a Mexican free-tailed
bat that fell out of one of his bat houses.
observed that the bats dodge them using
echo location," Hofstetter adds.
Echolocation provides the bat with a
unique sonar system, according to
National Geographic's Online
Magazine. As they hear their own
chirps bounce off objects, bats are able
to measure distances, dodge objects and
locate prey.
And their prey makes them one of
the most beneficial creatures to humans
and the world's ecosystems. Most bats
are nocturnal and eat insects. They are
nature's own "bug zappers" eating
nearly their weight in mosquitoes and
crop pests every night. Some species
eat fruit and a few are predators of
small vertebrates, but none attack
humans.
Although humans cannot hear bats
during their nocturnal flights because
they hunt prey by echolocation,
Hofstetter says that he can hear them
during the day.
"If I stand quietly under a bat house
and listen, I can hear them making soft,
mewing sounds. They sound like baby
kittens."
Kittens with wings
The analogy to kittens is a good one.
Bats are mammals; each mother has
only one pup per year. A mother bat can
find and nurse her pup even in huge
colonies where millions of babies clus-
ter at up to 500 per square foot.
Bats are clean animals that groom
their furs just like cats. They hunt at
night, as do felines in the wild. And if
you look closely at their furry little
faces with big eyes, they do bear a

Accident victim home with back injuries, FHP still seeking driver


News-Sun
SEBRING The Florida
Highway Patrol still hopes to
track down the driver in a May
16 wreck on U.S. 27.
Meanwhile, accident victim
17-year-old Amber Lee Fowler
of Frostproof has returned from
Tampa General Hospital. She is
walking, but wearing a back
brace, her parents said
Wednesday. Original FHP
reports had her last name mis-
spelled.


She told FHP the driver of
the vehicle she was in fled on
foot after the crash. The other
passenger 21-year-old
Jimmy R. Williams of
Frostproof told FHP that
Fowler was driving.
According to crash reports,
neither Fowler nor Williams
were wearing seat belts. When a
2005 Peterbilt semitrailer ran
into the back of the 1991
Oldsmobile she was in, the


impact propelled her through
the windshield, her family said.
The semitrailer driver 56-
year-old Harold W. Scherer of
Lake Hamilton was neither
injured nor cited. The
Oldsmobile pulled out of a pri-
vate drive at 11 p.m., May 16,
onto U.S. 27, about a mile south
of Lake Lillian Drive. Scherer's
semitrailer was in the outside
lane and couldn't stop in time,
FHP reports said.

BATS
Continued from 9A
faces with big eyes, they do
bear a resemblance to kittens.
Because some species appear
mouse-like from a distance,
many people think they are
rodents. Evolution studies show
that bats are more closely relat-
ed to primates than to rodents.
Bats pose little threat to
humans if people simply do not
handle them. They are gentle,
non-aggressive little creatures
who go out of their way to
avoid humans. Since most are
nocturnal, few people ever see a
bat unless it is in trouble.
It is a common misconcep-
tion that most bats are rabid.
Less than half of one percent of
bats contract rabies, no more
than many other animals. Like
others, they die quickly, but
unlike dogs, cats or raccoons,
rabid bats seldom become
aggressive.
"Never touch a downed bat,"
Hofstetter cautions. "If it is on
the ground, it may be sick. It
will not attack unless you grab
it, then its' only defense is to
bite."
Bats also die from other
causes; a large number from the
widespread use of pesticides
and deliberate efforts at exter-
mination from people who do
not understand their benefits.
More than half of the 44 U.S.
species of bats are endangered


'Bats are good
neighbors. They
don't bother
anyone, and they
are fun to watch.'
PETER HOFSTELLER
or in serious decline. Bats are
vulnerable to distinction partly
because they are the slowest
reproducing mammals on earth
for their size. Losses are occur-
ring at alarming rates world-
wide.
The most significant threats
to bat survival are persecution
by humans and loss of habitat.
Vandalism and disturbance of
roosting caves and careless use
of pesticides all seriously
threaten remaining populations.
Hofstetter believes that bats
are misunderstood creatures.
"Bats do only good things," he
declares.
'He points out that they are
natural control for insects. They
pollinate plants and disperse
seeds in the wild. Seeds
dropped by bats can account for
up to 95 percent of forest
regrowth on cleared land.
"Bats are good neighbors.
They don't bother anyone and
they are fun to watch. Building
a bat house is cheap and easy.
You help the bats and the bats
help you."

2004 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report


Spring Lake Improvement District
115 Spring Lake Boulevard
Sebring, Florida 33876-6143
(863) 655-1715

We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the excellent water and services we have delivered to
you over the past year. Our goal is and always has been to provide to you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water.
This report will be mailed to customers only upon request and is also available at the District Office, located at 115 Spring Lake Boulevard. This report is also posted on the
District's Website at www.slid-springlake.com.

Our water source is wells; our wells draw from the Floridan Aquifer. Chlorine is added for disinfection and Soda Ash and Zinc Polyphosphate are added for stabiliza-
tion.

The FDEP is in the process of conducting SWAs for all public water systems in FL. These assessments will identify and assess any potential sources of
contamination in the vicinity of your water supply. A SWA report for this system will be available at the DEP SWAPP web site: www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp
by July 1, 2005.

SIf you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact (Greg Gretz, Water Plant Manager at (863) 655-1715). We want our valued
customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second
Wednesday of every month at 3:30 p.m. at the Spring Lake District Office.

Spring Lake Improvement District routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water. According to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2004.

KEY TO TABLE

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the.MCLGs as feasible using the best
available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below, which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a
margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant, which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements, which a water system must follow.
Treatment Technique (TT): A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.
"ND": means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1): one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter: one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in'water.
N/A: Not applicable

SThe Sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface'of
the land or through the ground it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and in some cases, radioactive material and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of
animals or from human activity.
Contaminant's that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminant's, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminant's, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater dis-
charges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminant's, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can,
also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems. .
:(E) Radioactive contaminant's, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminant's in water provided by public water systems.
FDA regulations establish limits for contaminant's in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may
reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminant's. The presence of contaminant's does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health
risk. More information about contaminant's and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at
1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminant's in drinking water than the general population. Immune-compromised persons such as persons with cancer under-
going chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particular-
ly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the
risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminant's are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

TTHMs and Stage 1 Disinfectant/Disinfection By-Product (D/DBP) Parameters
For the following parameters monitored under stage 1 D/DBP regulations, the level detected is the highest annual average of the quarterly averages: Bromate,
Chloramines, Chlorine, Haloacetic Acids, and/or TTHM (MCL 80 ppb). Range of results is the range of results (lowest to highest) at the individual sampling sites.
For TTHMs monitored under rules adopted before stage 1 D/DBP rules (MCL = 1000 ppb), the level detected is the highest running annual average calculated


quarterly. The Range of Results is the rance of results (lowest to highest) at the individual sampling sites.

As you can see by the above table, our system had no violations. We're proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds all Federal and State Requirements. We
have learned through our monitoring and testing that some constituents have been detected. The EPA has determined that your water is SAFE at these levels.

We at Spring Lake Improvement District would like for you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided in this report, please feel free
to contact our office.

SFCC dental hygiene class passes national exam


AVON PARK Of the 13
students who recently graduat-
ed from South Florida
Community College's first den-
tal hygiene class this month,
100 percent passed the required
national examination.
"The American Dental
Association gives the exam to
all students graduating from
- dental hygiene schools across
the country on the very same
day," said Becky, Sroda, direc-
tor of dental education at
SFCC.
"The significance is that once
you pass the national board,
you can sit for the state board
and then become licensed," she
said. "You can graduate from a
program, but if you aren't
licensed, you can't practice as a
dental hygienist anywhere in
this country. So you have to


Chat with a

librarian

online at SFCC
Today, thanks to an exciting
new online reference service,
Ask a Librarian, professional
expertise is just a mouse click
away. Best of all, the service is
free to everyone in Florida.
Because of South Florida
Community College's Learning
Resources Center and more
than 80 other public, academic,
school and special libraries
around Florida, people can chat
with a librarian online, in real
time, from 10 a.m. to to 10 p.m.
Sunday through Friday and
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday.
Ask a Librarian uses unique
software that allows a person to
follow along on the Web with
the librarian so they can see
how and where the librarian
locates the information. The
chat session is totally interac-
tive, and there is no special
software to download. Once
their inquiry has been
answered, they can print it or e-
mail a transcript of the entire
session if they need to refer-
ence it again. During periods
that the online chat is not avail-
able, a person can e-mail a
question, and a librarian will
get back' to them via e-mail
during normal working hours.
To use Ask a Librarian, visit
www.southflorida.edu and click
on the Ask a Librarian link.
For more information about
Ask a Librarian or other free
programs and services avail-
able, call Lena Phelps-Ellerker,
director of SFCC Learning
Resources Center, at ext. 7303
at 453-6661, 465-5300, 773-
2252 or 494-7500.


take both exams. The national
board is a prerequisite for the
state board. It's an eight-hour
written exam that covers every
didactic course that the students
ever took for two years."
The exam administered by
the state of Florida, on the other
hand, is a practical exam.
Students can take the exam at
either the University of Florida
or at Nova Southeastern
University and are tested by,
cleaning a patient's teeth.


Sroda indicated that dental
hygiene students, generally, do
well on the national board.
"That, after all, is the goal. But
most schools set 'a goal of 80
percent pass rate. It's a difficult
test. The first part is multiple
choice, and the second part is
case-based. Students .are given
eight to ten cases." Students are
provided with a complete
assessment of a fictional
patient. They are given materi-
als, such as a dental chart, peri-

"This first dental hygiene
class has set a precedent,"
Sroda said. "We hope that every
class rises to its level. One hun-

SFCC began its dental
hygiene program in fall 2003.

Take caution driving during Florida's rainy season


Well, hurricane season 2005
is almost here that time of
year we all look forward to. I
thought with the rainy season
quickly approaching we could
examine those types of road
conditions and the equipment
we need to drive on them.
I know that you personally
don't litter, but what about your
car?
Did you realize that as you
are driving down the road either
your vehicle or one of the hun-
dreds around you is throwing
debris onto the road way? I'm
not talking about big chunks,
although we have seen those
vehicles that are throwing big
pieces. I'm talking about the
fine mists of oil, transmission
fluid, power steering fluid or
radiator fluid that may be
thrown on the roadway.
During the dry period these
fluids slowly but collectively
accumulate on the roadway.
When it begins to rain these flu-
ids make their way to the top of
the road. The combination of
fluids can make the roadway as
slick as a snow covered road (if
you don't know how slick that
is, ask a snowbird). Light rains
are the most dangerous as they
bring these fluids to the surface
but there isn't enough rain to
wash them off of the roadway.
You can't steer or brake a
vehicle, unless you have trac-
tion. Traction is friction
between the tires and the road.
There are some road conditions
that reduce traction and call for
lower speeds. It will take longer
to stop and it will be harder to
turn without skidding when the
road is slippery. Estimates are



Iv


U-q


dw w







-e


lhh -.~


that you will need almost twice
the distance to stop at the same
speed. So you must drive slow-
er to be able to stop in the same
distance as on a dry
road.
Now let's look at
some of the require-
ments of Florida
State Statutes (FSS).
The first thing you
may need is a wind-
shield. This is cov-
ered under FSS
316.2952, which HI
states that vehicles
operated in the state 0
of Florida are
required to have a J.P.
windshield in a fixed
and upright position, which is
equipped with safety glazing as
required by federal safety-glaz-
ing material standards, and is
required on every motor vehicle
that is oIperated on the public
highways, roads and streets,
except on a motorcycle or
implement of husbandry. It
goes into further detail and adds
in subparagraph (3) that you
also need to have a device for
cleaning rain, snow or other
moisture from the windshield,
which device shall be construct-
ed as to be controlled or operat-
ed by the driver of the vehicle.
Subparagraph (4) states every
windshield wiper upon a motor
vehicle shall be maintained in
good working order. These vio-
lations are considered non-
moving violations and the
penalty is $71.50.
You are also going to need to
be able to see in the rain and
just as importantly be seen.
Under FSS 316.220,


;H
TI
.i


Headlamps on motor vehicles.
(1) Every motor vehicle shall be
equipped with at least two
headlamps with at least one on
each side of the front
of the motor vehicle.
which headlamps
tg shall comply with the
requirements and
1 limitations set forth
S in this chapter, and
S shall show a white
light. An object,
material or covering
WAY that alters the head-
S lamp's light color
LINE may not be placed,
-displayed, installed,
7ANE affixed or applied
over a headlamp.
This also is a non-moving vio-
lation, $71.50.
When you need to use those
headlights is covered under FSS
316.217 (1) (a) At any time
from sunset to sunrise including
the twilight hours. Twilight
hours shall mean the time
between sunset and full night or
between full night and sunrise.
(b) During any rain, smoke or
fog. This is considered a mov-
ing violation costing $115.50
and three points on your dri-
ver's license.
If for any reason there is
something wrong with your
windshield (e.g. cracked or
obstructed), your windshield
wipers are inoperable or your
headlights are not functioning
properly you can also be cited
by an officer under FSS
316.610 "Safety of Vehicle
Inspection." This allows in sub-
paragraph (1) Any police offi-
cer may at any time, upon rea-


sonable cause to believe that a
vehicle is unsafe or not
equipped as required by law, or
that its equipment is not in
proper adjustment or repair,
require the driver of the vehicle
to stop and submit the vehicle
to an inspection and such test
with reference thereto as may
be appropriate.
You could at that point be
cited for each safety violation
that the officer observes. You
would then have the option to
be subjected to the non-moving
fine of $71.50 (by either not fix-
ing the violation, or fixing it
and not bringing the vehicle in
for an inspection to confirm that
it has been repaired).
Or you could fix the noted
discrepancy within 30 days and
have your fine reduced by hav-
ing a law enforcement officer
inspect the vehicle in question,
then signing the back of your
citation and delivering the cita-
tion to the Clerk of the Court,
Traffic Division, this would be
$4 to the agency inspecting the
vehicle and then $7.50 to the
clerk's office.
Next week we will cover
more of the issue of driving on
wet roads and the effects that
has on your driving abilities.
As always stay safe and
please rememberto drive care-
fully.

Don't judge a person


by the car they drive


We've all heard the
phrase "You can't
judge a book by its
cover" and yet I have
a tendency to do just
that.


JANEt
JARG
.Jnn6


I was watching a Den
minister on TV the
other evening and he
was mentioning when
he met his wife, she was driving
a beat up car, living in a run
down apartment and really a
mess. Now she is sitting behind
the pulpit supporting her
famous preacher husband (who
is a good, common-sense
preacher, unlike most).
While listening to this, I
wondered how many other
women are out there in that
same predicament? In their
hearts, they have a vision for a
better life, they're trying to
keep putting one foot in front of
the other, to do better, to down-
size, whatever it takes to stay
afloat in the sea of life.
Money, or lack thereof,
seems to be one of the major
problems they face. It isn't
because they don't work full-
time, or shop at Belk Lindsey's
weekly; they feel blessed to go
to Winn Dixie for food at times
and frequent the Dollar Store as
well.'But that is another article
in itself.


n


The message I
S want to put out there
LE S is we, as a society,
ION need to practice to
Snot judge people by
elle the car they drive (or
ison no car at all), or the
S clothes they wear,
etc. If they're work-
ing full time, that's a
good indication they have some
sense of self-respect, that they
are responsible, etc.
In the words of Martin
Luther King Jr., "I have a
dream!" God has given me, a
dream for a better tomorrow.
It's not easy sometimes to keep
on keeping on, but by the help
and grace of God I will see that
dream come to pass because He
promised and "God is not a
man that he should lie nor the
son of man that He should
repent..." Numbers 23:19.
And God's economy isn't
like man's economy.
So, women (and men alike,
as this challenge knows no gen-
der), keep the faith God gave
you. Keep pressing on and I'll
see you at the finish line.

Obligation met

How long is it acceptable for children to play on
unsafe equipment? Earlier this week, Avon Park
Recreation Director Tony Anderson ordered the play
structure to be pulled out at the First Street Playground.
At Monday night's Avon Park City Council meeting
Councilwoman Brenda Gray kept asking, "Where are
the little children going to play?"
We hope wherever they play it will not be on unsafe
equipment. Anderson described a big hole in the slide,
exposed concrete pieces under an elevated structure and
pieces that wobbled under use.
It is obvious that as unpopular as it was, Anderson
did the right thing by ordering the equipment removed
from the area.
It is also very apparent that it was not the little chil-
dren, for whom this equipment was designed, that have
caused the damage described by the city's director of
parks and recreation.
Most of this damage seems to have been caused by
unsupervised older children and young adults playing
on equipment that was never meant to hold that weight
nor stand up to the kind of stress to which it was sub-
jected.
Even more distressing is word that out and out van-
dalism has also been part and parcel of the damage to
the playground. It was neither little children nor stress
that removed a welded metal table top, broke out the
security light and the bathroom windows.
In our book, broken glass and little children do not
mix.
What happens next is up to the Avon Park City
Council and the leaders of the southside community.
Council members need to make some hard decisions as
to what kind of investment they are prepared to spend
tax money on, in an area that is so tough on the infra-
structure.
Community leaders need to consider what kind of
message is being sent not only to the city, but to the
small children of the area who without these recre-
Sational structures apparently have nowhere to play
and enjoy themselves.
It is fortunate that there is an upcoming recreational
summit planned to talk with organized teams about the
use of the city's ballfields. Perhaps it needs to be
expanded to discuss what kinds of recreation will be
provided for the very young iaidc'ow it will e main- ",
Stained. .
While the city has an obligation to its residents both
young and old for parks, they do not have the obligation
to throw good money after bad.







WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINION.

What should happen with Avon Park's
First Street Playground?

Speak up

against violence

Editor:
The Majority Leader, Bill
Frist, recently said that,
"People of faith are all of the
same political point of view."
While it is true that the majori-
ty of Americans are "people of
faith," it is not true that they
share the same political or reli-
gious views. If it were true that
we were a nation of fundamen-
talists, the current administra-
tion would be enjoying an
increase in popularity, not a
decrease.
While our Christian funda-
mentalists were behind the
Supreme Court judges when
they put an end to the vote
counting in Florida, they now
consider them"to be worse than
terrorists their "sin" being
not voting the party line.
Branding them "infidels" they
have put them on their hit list
along with everyone who does-
n't see things their way.
Needlino th hbackin nof the.


the only way to bring about
what we all want and need
most of all -the Brotherhood
of Man. To support violence is
to allow the Masters of the Con
to prevail.

So few made a

bad decision
Editor:
I've read different points of
view regarding the defeat of the
half cent referendum.
The "No" votes did not kill
the referendum; apathy did!
Make no mistake, the nayss"
did drive the nails in its coffin.
But the negative vote repre-
sented only eight percent of
registered voters. In fact. onl]
12 percent took the' time to do
their civic duty even though the
poles were open for two weeks.
I commend each person who
voted but remain very disap-
pointed in the result.
What happened to the
remaining 52,000 voters, many

pepemodri UI UU-C LUU.I. 1 TlI.,


%\ ar. Bush has quickly begun to
distance himself from the
extremists. Where before he
had intimated that he was anx-
iously waiting for the rapture
himself, he is now reaching out
to the non-religious the 30
million voters who claim no
religious affiliation at all. He
now "believes" that, "If you
choose not to worship, you're
equally as patriotic as some-
body who does worship.''
By stressing fundamentalist
religious issues, such as abor-
tions, condoms and same sex
marriage, he is winning a few
orthodox Catholics to his side,
but losing the support of many
liberal Catholics those who
believe that religious "sins"
should not be made punishable
by the state, as it was in the
Dark Ages.
History repeats itself in good
ways as well as in bad ways.
Franklyn D. Roosevelt tried to
manipulate the Supreme Court
in order to save Social Security
- the conservatives wanting it
brought down before it even
got off the ground. He failed in
his attempt to restructure the
court, but the judges surprised
everyone by voting to uphold
Social Security.
Our conservative judges sur-
prised everyone when they
voted against restoring Teri
Schiavo's feeding tube. They
chose to trust the judgments of
her doctors rather than vote the
party line. They should be com-
mended for both their wisdom
and their courage, not shot
down.
The truth is, the majorities
all over the world are made up
of peace loving Christians,
Jews, Muslims, Pagans, and
Non-Believers. Speaking up
against the use of violence is

needed you to vote and give
voice to the silent majority.
I referred to voting as our
civic duty. In many regions of
the world, voting is but a dream
- an ideal worth sacrificing
everything to experience. We
only have to sacrifice a few
minutes in order to safeguard
this precious right.
Winston Churchill once
declared, "Never have so many
owed so much to so few."
On May 10 in Highlands
County, never have so few
decided so much for so many.
Next time, everyone vote!

Hard work was

not appreciated
Editor:
How would you reward a
loyal, hard-working employee?
More than six years ago my
mother and father-in-law
retired from their respected,
long-standing careers in upstate
New York and moved to
Florida. They were living in
Lake Placid for only a short
time before they started their
volunteer work at the Lake


Placid hospital. Soon after, they
joined the Lake Placid Elks and
volunteered and donated even
more of their time.
In January 2001, my mother-
in-law accepted the position of
office manager at a senior
home. After two years she wore
many more hats than "office
manager." She carried a beeper
24 hours a day, on call at all
times, took classes to learn how
to dispense medications and
provided personal care to the
residents. In 2003, my father-
in-law was also hired at the
facility as their maintenance
man. There were countless
times when we came to visit
and they would have to leave
due to a resident's air condi-
tioner breaking, the cook not
showing up, etc. They actually
had to go and prepare a meal(s)
for the residents.
Both my mother and father-
in-law took these jobs because
they are caring, loving and
compassionate people.
During the hurricanes in
2004, both of my in-laws left
their home and actually lived at
What was, left of the facility\ for
'three dis t6oen-ure ihe sa fei
and the- ell-being of the resi-
dents until arrangements for
their transfer could be made.
My father-in-law waded
through unsafe rooms in an
attempt to salvage the resi-
dents' belongings without
regard for his own safety.
The hurricanes shut down
the facility completely in
September 2004. My father-ii-
law went there frequently in his
own time to check on the reno-
vation status, pick up the mail
and ensure there were no signs
of vandalism. There was no
official date for the grand re-
opening.
My mother-in-law was given
the tentative return date of
August 2005, but my father-in-
law was expected to return to
work earlier as the maintenance
man. My mother-in-law took
another position because as
time went on there was no
guarantee that she would even
have a job at all in August
2005. My father-in-law totally
forgot about a staff meeting in
April before the re-opening of
the center. No one ever called
to inquire as to why he was not
at the meeting; instead he was
simply "let go."
The day prior to the grand
re-opening, my father-in-law
went to pick up his tools. As the
maintenance man, he often
brought in his own tools when'
needed. In the presence of
another employee who gave
him permission to find his tools
he discovered all of his tools
were gone. It is in question as
to whether they were stolen,
misplaced or just missing? He
told the employee he would
make a list of the missing items
for reimbursement and submit

A fun day

at Arc

I admit I am a little late in
talking about this, but a few
months ago several movie
stars, especially the brilliant
(sarcastic laughter) Lindsey
Lohan, were chastised by
organizations representing the
mentally handicap for calling
something "retarded."
Now, I would certainly agree
that the word has turned into
one with a cruel connotation.
The stories of cruelty from
those who are mentally chal-
lenged and have been taunted
with such big clubs as words
can be would make many of
us more than a little angry at
how pathetically humans can
treat each other.
But, a few weeks ago I got to
see another side of people who
are mentally challenged, a side
That should make "retarded" a
compliment. But, since we are
often a fairly ignorant organ-
ism, I doubt that it will ever
reach compliment status.
The side I got to see of the
mentally challenged happened
on a little running trackbehind
South Florida Community
College at the Ridge Area Arc
complex. On the track there
were great games like toilet
basketball, plastic putt-putt,
toss-the-bean-bag-into-the-
board-with-more-holes-than-
swiss-cheese,. bowling for
extreme cheaters and many
more such games.
Now. had almost any other
Group of American humans
been assembled there and told
that they were going to have a
great time for two hours, they
would have certainly laughed
at you before you forced them
at bayonet point to play some
one-on-one toilet basketball.
'But, this. was the great thing,
the clients from Arc were excit-
ed.
It wasn't that I-got-a-piece-
of-junk-gift-but-have-to-be-
nice excitement either; it was
good old fashion E to the X to
the C to the ITED.
Word dawg!
As the day went on and I
high-fived people, hugged
them or just smiled as someone
ran sprinting to the back of the
line screaming with joy after
hitting an alley-oop (I was
cheating my fanny off) three-
point toilet bowl basket from
way down town (15 inches
away), I noticed something.
What I saw were people who
were sincere to their core.
It seems so much of my time
is spent trying to figure out
people's motives, if they mean
what they say or if they are just
trying to get something out of
me. I am sure that at times even
the mentally challenged do
these things, but compared to
us non-challenged beings they
barely do them at all.
Yet, we cast these people off
thinking they have nothing to
offer. Please! What a joke.
Anyone who can teach sin-
cerity so well should be treas-
ured as an incredible resource
to society.
We should require arinoying-
ly stale and unloving people to
go and volunteer at places like
the Arc. A few times of being
bear hugged, kissed, tackled,
tickled and teased might just
show what they are missing by
not enjoying the sincerity that
life offers.
Maybe it is the normal that
really have some challenges.
Oh, and I sooo flushed in toi-
let basketball! (Que laugh of
pity for incredibly lame joke).

Andrews University. He is an

did not win at the Arc fun day,
his team did beat Executive
Editor Romona Washington's
team, which proves who is the
bigger cheater

it to new management and
left the property.
Just a day after he went to
reclaim what was his, a certi-
fied letter was delivered to their
home from an attorney's office
delivered to both my mother
and. father-in-law. The letter
from the attorney was a "No
Trespass Warning." My mother
and father-in-law are not
allowed to be on the property at
any time nor are they allowed
to contact the residents in per-
son or it will be considered a
violation of the order and
would result in their arrest.
I am very blessed to have
such loving and caring in-laws.
They are outstanding, well-
known, respected members of
the Lake Placid community.
They have donated countless
hours of time, energy and emo-
tion to this center.
I was so appalled by the let-
ter they received from the attor-
ney that I was compelled to
share their story. The facility
has lost two of their best
employees they will ever have.
My mother and father-in-law
will continue to give of them-
selves to the Lake Placid com-
munity and hold their heads up
high with pride and dignity
because of who they are and
\ hat they do. I cannot say the
same for the unethical behavior
of the owner and present man-
ager of the facility.

Pachyderms are

stolen
Editor:
Missing two large, gray, obe-


dient, housebroken elephants.
That's right. An elephant.
On or about the night of May
17 at Sebring Christian Church
someone absconded with our
two elephant cut outs that we
are using, to promote the
church's Vacation Bible School
this year. The dates and times
are May 29 through June 4.
They were attached to the
billboard that has been erected
in the parking lot to hold our
sign.
The elephants were made by
the church's youth and families
minister, Sam Wirick-Velez.
Both he and the senior minister,
Tod Schwingel, were some-
what amused to see that they
were missing.
"We never thought that
someone would do something
like this," Sam said. "If I had
known something like this
would happen, I would have
secured the elephants," Tod
said when asked for his
response to this situation.
If the person or persons who
made off with the pachyderms
meant it as a practical joke, we
are amused. If they took the
elephants for lawn decorations,
all they had to do was ask and I
would have made them a few.
If someone took them out of.
spite ... well, I don't know what
to think about that.
We would like our elephants
back. If they are returned to the
church, no questions will be
asked. As a matter of fact, who-
ever took them is more than
welcome to attend one of our
services anytime they want. We
hold no grudge.
I know that God sees what
we do on earth and knows all
about this. Does He care that
someone "stole" from the
church? Yes. Do I know that
God is forgiving? Yes. Do we
care for the person who did


this? Most certainly.
All we ask is that the person
who did this think about it and
do the right thing. For more
information, contact the church
office at 382-6676.

King has been a

true blessing

Editor:
We would like to personally
thank Dr. Samuel A. King for
all the wonderful time and
effort he has given to the Sun
Room Health Services Clinic
over the years.
Dr. King was the very first
volunteer doctor that we were
blessed with in 1992, when we
were given approval by the
Florida Board of Medicine to
begin operating the Health
Service Clinic.
Dr. King is one of the finest,
kindest, caring, loving and ded-
icated volunteers that has ever
graced our doors at the Sun
Room. Dr. King's mannerism
reflects on the patients and it is
because of his character that we
have helped so very many eld-
erly clients in this community
over the years.
God gave Dr. King a heart
that is rare to find in today's
medical world. He is not only a
doctor to many generations in a
family here in Highlands
County but their trusted friend.
He practices a holistic
approach that is hard to find
nowadays. We are thankful and
proud to have known such a
fine man all these years; he
gave of himself to the clinic
here at the Sun Room.
Without Dr. King, we would


have had an extremely slow
start up period with this unique
clinic for the elderly. That did
not happen. We have grown
from the beginning.
We truly never want to see
Dr. King leave the Sun Room
totally. Since he is on the board
of directors, we will still be
able to draw from his direction
and guidance.
We wish Dr Samuel A. King
and his wife, Patricia, the very
best in their retirement years.
Dick Swenson
Sebring

The writer is founder and chief
executive officer of Sun Room
Senior Center Inc. The letter
was also signed by Linda
Swenson, clinic manager and
volunteer clinic director, and
all the volunteers that have
served throughout the many
years.

Isn't it lovely?
Editor:
Isn't it lovely when someone
does something wonderful for
you unexpectedly? Especially
when that someone is a com-
plete stranger?
So this happened to me last
Sunday as I sat alone in a
crowded local restaurant. After
playing organ in church, I
always like to have Sunday
dinner out, dressed in my
Sunday best (which happens
only that one day each week)
and contemplate the service I
have just heard. It has also been
a family tradition to do this and
then visit my dear great-grand-
mother and hear my father talk
with her in Swedish many
years ago in Chicago.
So now I often eat alone on
Sunday, choosing a different
restaurant each week and there
I was last Sunday enjoying my


dinner, and also admiring the
people around me. A group of
20 came in and tables were
joined for them, six adults at
another table, then four pretty
high school girls next to me,
and across from me a young
handsome couple who were
new parents of a darling little
boy about a year old. He was so
well behaved and I stole a
glance or two as I admired his
lovely blue eyes peeking out
from under the brim of his little
white cap.
This little family came in
after me and left before me, so
then soon I was ready to leave
but no waiter had given me my
bill. So I arose and walked
toward the cashier and the man-
ager said "No, your dinner has
been paid for!"


I was shocked and asked,
"Who did this lovely thing?,"
and he said it was the couple
with the little blue-eyed boy!

So I went to my car and rode
home rejoicing in the love
expressed by these dear people,
strangers who saw a lonely
grandma admiring their little
son, yet no words were
exchanged! We may never meet
again, but perhaps when this lit-
tle boy grows older and if he
shows any interest in music,
that his parents might let him
become my piano pupil, and I
shall be delighted to share the
joys of music with him, as my
gift in return for that most spe-
cial Sunday dinner!

Predators seek

out elderly
They manipulate your
sense of trust in an effort to
"divide and conquer," plant-
ing seeds of doubt, which
leads to alienation from fam-
ily members and friends.
Who are they? They are
schemers and scammers of
the elderly.
Motivated by greed, pred-
ators of the elderly often
establish a trusted position
with the victim who
becomes reliant on them as
confidence increases. The
confidence of the elderly
person grows and develops
into dependence; so does the
manipulation of the
schemers.
Seeds of doubt begin to
grow and nurture with ideas
such as, "your children want
.to send you to a nursing
home," "I saw your daughter
at your bank withdrawing a
huge sum of money," "the
children think you are
incompetent," "your chil-
dren want to control all your
money," "you have worked
too long and hard for your
nest egg for them to take
control," and "allow me to
make a financially secure
investment which will reap
huge dividends." Suckered,
you take inventory of all this
scammer has told you and
you give up control of \ our
money. Gotcha!
The elderly within our
society fall victim to scam-
mers and schemers because
they grew up in an era of
trust where scammers and
schemers were fe\< and far
between. So innocent are the
elderly that a trusted voice a
good-looking person can
deceive the gray hair from
their heads.
According to a report in
Congress, "Financial and
Material Exploitation is dif-
ficult to quantify Onl 16
percent of all elder abuse
cases are reported Aftraid to
share the financial abuse, the
elderly have "a higher risk
of premature death."
When Congress mandated
the National Elder Abuse
incident study, i. \was
revealed that "30 percent of
all reported and substantiat-
ed elder abuse cases % ere
financial exploitation while
25 percent were physical
abuse." After neglect, the
prominent type of reported
elder abuse is financial.
Among the predators that
Congress discovered %ere:
home repairmen, travelers.
gypsies, telemarketers and
family members.
It has been estimated that
70 percent of our nanlon's
wealth is held by those 50
years old and above. Over
the next 10 years, there will
be $10 trillion in assets
invested by the elderly.
Those preying on the elderly
are associated with "Pirate,
Jean Lafitte, who robbed
ships and Jesse James who
robbed banks and trains".
An AARP survey revealed
that 85 percent of individu-
als 60 years old and older
want to stay in their homes
and live independently. As
the baby boomers become
an elderly population, socie-
ty must exercise vigilance in
protecting those who have
protected us during our vul-
nerable years.

her feelings on paper to win contest


By CINDY MARSHALL
Night/Weekend Editor
SEBRING Words seem to
flow onto paper with ease when
11-year-old Kathryn Gist
expresses herself.
The straight A student at
Lake Placid Elementary has
two awards under her belt
already for her writing ability.
She won the Elks essay contest
in March and most recently an
essay contest sponsored by Nu-
Hope of Highlands County
where fifth-grade students in
the county got to write about
their favorite older citizen. The
Nu-Hope contest was done in
recognition of "Older
Americans Month" in May.
For her efforts. Gist received
a plaque and a $60 cash prize
last Monday.
Gist, who will be advancing
to sixth grade at Lake Placid
Middle School next school
year, really has a compassion
for writing.
"I really .like just telling my
feelings,", she said about writ-
ing.
She admits that math is not
her favorite subject, but still

Gist said her future goal is to
be an editor, teacher or work in
the Congressional Library.
Gist chose W.J. Allison, who
is in his mid 60s, as her topic to
write about. Allison is a minis-

father's. She got to know
Allison when her family used to
live in Alabama three years ago.
She is the daughter of Bobby

who also have three other
daughters.
In reference to what stands

My Bishop: A Caring Man of


God
M) old bishop was a ver)
kind man. He died a few days
ago on March 26. Everyone was
sad, but my grandma misses
him the most. I chose him
because he is one of the kindest,
gentlest and the most caring
man I have ever known.
He was loving too. One time
a woman came to church and


went up to speak. Nobody knew
who she was. She said that God
came to her face to face and
talked to her. No one believed
her, then she almost started to
say something about a family in
church.. The Bishop walked up
and gently put his hand over the
microphone and said, "This
kind of stuff should be dis-
cussed in my office." She left
and church went on as usual.
That shows how lo ing, caring
and gentle mN bishop was.
Another time when the
church had game night. it got
very boring. So he asked his
wife to go to Wal-Mart. He
needed some powder sugar
doughnuts and some string.
When she came back he took
the string and tied it to the bas-
ketball hoop. Then he tied the
doughnuts to the string. We had
a new game! The person had to
have their hands behind their
back and tr. to get the dough-
nut. Everybody loved the game'
He's not onl\ loving and caring,
but he is fun too.
He died of cancer, but he also
died with a good heart and
man\ fnends. MNl family\ will
al\wa.s remember him as a
fnend and as a wonderful bish-
op. He taught us that we are all
God's children and deserve to
be treated kindly.

Beyond 'Star Wars,' movies are waiting to be seen


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
With the "Star Wars" blitz hitting the-
aters, you might not realize there are still
other movies to see, but this week brings a
few new flicks and older ones lingering on:
NEW THIS WEEK:
"The Longest Yard" In this remake of
the 1974 film, Adam Sandier plays a former
professional quarterback who gets sent to
prison and ends up leading the inmates in a
football game against the guards. Burt
Reynolds, who played the lead in the origi-
nal, is back as a supporting player, along
with comedian Chris Rock. Peter Segal
("50 First Dates") directs. Released by:
Paramount Pictures. Running time: 1 hour,
49 minutes. Rated: PG-13. Playing at

themselves with their animal instincts.

Schwimmer, Cedric the Entertainer and
Jada Pinkett Smith. Running time: 1 hour,
20 minutes. Rated: PG. Playing at Carmike
Cinema 8.
"Millions" A bag of money from a bank
robbery literally falls out of the sky and into
the laps of Damian and Anthony, two
British boys, who are grieving the death of
their money. But since the United Kingdom
is switching to the Euro in a week, the boys
figure they've got to spend it quick. Their
decisions mix fantasy with faith as an
assortment of saints show up to guide them.
and protect them from the bank robbers
who want the money back. Early buzz says
"Millions" is a worthy family film.
Released by: Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Running time: 1 hour, 38 minutes. Rated:
PG-13. Playing at Fairmount Cinema 6.
STILL PLAYING:
"Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" -

It's no day at the beach for the animals of 'Madagascar. Finding themselves cast out of the
Central Park Zoo, Marty Marty the Zebra (voice of Chris Rock), Alex the Lion (voice of Ben
Stiller), Gloria the Hippo (voice of Jada Pinkett-Smith) and Melman the Giraffe (voice of
David Schwimmer) have to adjust to the wild. Released by Dreamworks, the new animated
film is paying at Carmike Cinema 8.


"House of Wax" A group of college
kids stumbles on an eerie town, where all of
the residents are made of wax. You can bet
the barn that a whole lot of screaming will
go on and a few dead bodies will show up
before the young detectives get to the bot-
tom of this. Stars Elisha Cuthbert, Chad
Michael Murray and Paris Hilton. Released
by: Warner Bros. Running time: 1 hour, 27
minutes. Rated: R. Playing at Carmike
Cinema 8.
"The Interpreter" Nicole Kidman is a
United Nations interpreter who thinks she
has overheard a plot to assassinate an
African dictator coming to speak to the
assembly. Sean Penn is the Secret Service
agent who suspects she is lying. A cat-and-
mouse game ensues between them as the
assassination day draws closer. Solid per-
formances and a peek inside the U.N. out-
weigh the hoary plot. Released by:
Universal Pictures. Running time: 2 hours,
8 minutes. Rated: PG-13. Playing at
Fairmourt Cinema 6.
"Kicking and Screaming" This Will
Ferrell comedy imagines what would have
happened in Buddy the Elf had been raised
by a soccer dad instead of Santa Claus.
Ferrell's Phil Weston, another super-dufus,


coaches a losing little league soccer team in
order to settle the score with his competi-
tive dad (Robert Duvall). Mike Ditka, play-
ing himself, and two gifted young soccer
players save the day. An average good time.
Released by: Universal Pictures. Running
time: 1 hour, 36 minutes. Rated: PG.
Playing at Carmike Cinema 8.
"Monster-in-Law" Jane Fonda and
Jennifer Lopez square off in this comedy
about a discarded talk show diva (Fonda)

wants to wed. Released by: New Line
Cinema. Running time: 1 hour, 35 minutes.
Rated: PG-13. Playing at Fairmount
Cinema 6.
"Sahara" A Confederate treasure and a
mysterious ebola-like plague form the
intrigue in this upbeat if formulaic adven-
ture. Matthew McConaughey is a natural fit
as Dirk Pitt, the swaggering hero of Clive
Cussler's novels. Also stars Steve Zahn (the
comic relief) and Penelope Cruz (the love
interest). A family-friendly film with some
action violence but no profanity or sexual
situations. Released by: Paramount
Pictures. Running time: 2 hours, 7 minutes.
Rated: PG-13. Playing at Fairmount
Cinema 6.

Even today, God speaks through his Word 'Rambling Road Trip' begins June 13
SEBRING Youngsters open to all children who are
w;U -riutrul e u thp I T ..tpfl 115, 1111ta.15rtun through


"Sure! You
Christians quote from
the Bible. But the
Bible was written by
men. And men can
make mistakes."
That is what the
unbeliever says. With
that kind of reasoning
the unbeliever tries to
shake the Christian's
faith and tries to
make the Bible look
like an unreliable
book.
But in the Gospel
of St. John we hear


Jesus himself contradict this
mistaken human opinion. There
he says, "The Counselor, the
Holy Spirit, whom the Father
will send in my name, will
teach you all things and will
remind you of everything I have
said to you." (John 14:26)
We all know how quickly
people can forget what hap-
pened. We all know how quick-
ly people can get the facts and


the details mixed up.
If the apostles had
been left to them-
selves, they also
would have misrep-
resented many of the
things that Jesus said
and did.
If the disciples had
been left on their
own, they would
have gotten the facts
and details mixed up.
Their writings and
their teachings would
have been filled with
all sorts of contradic-


tions.
But God did not permit this
to happen. Jesus did not let
them wander off on their own.
But it happened to them as he
said: "The Holy Spirit will
remind you of everything I have
said to you."
The Holy Spirit caused the
New Testament writers to
remember exactly what Jesus
had spoken and exactly what


Jesus had done. The words
which they spoke and wrote
were given by inspiration God
the Holy Spirit. Therefore we
have the assurance that the
Bible is an accurate record of
the Savior's words and deeds. It
is the truth.
Therefore let us not idly sit
back and hope that God will
somehow appear to us or direct-
ly inform us of his will. If we
want to hear God speak and be
assured that it is truly God, and
not the devil, speaking, we must
go to his Word, the Bible.
For that is where Jesus comes
to us and makes himself known
to us. We can hear and read the
Bible with the confidence that
Jesus himself is standing before
us and instructing us.
When the Bible reveals our
sinfulness and our need for a
Savior, Jesus is speaking. When
the Bible tells us that "God so
loved the world that he gave his
only-begotten Son,' Jesus him-
self is offering us his comfort.


Let us then be eager to hear and
to read the words of that sacred
Book.
Always allow the Holy Spirit
to guide you in your under-
standing and in the knowledge
that God has placed in your
hands.
Let it be your guide to the
peace and understanding that
your Savior desires you to have.
He came that you may be
brought back into a right rela-
tionship with God and receive
the grace that he has provided
through his suffering and death
on the cross.
Open your hearts and minds
to his word and receive the joy
of eternal life. Be eager to hear,
to learn and to believe.

ELDERLY
Continued from 1C
woman suffering from
Alzheimer's disease, was
robbed of more than $1 million
in financial schemes. Three
men were indicted in the
Schenectady County court on
15-count indictment.


In the indictment, the men
are said to have drained the
woman's bank accounts, liqui-
dated her stocks and bonds,
using the proceeds for their own
benefits, overcharged her for
labor and materials and con-
vinced her to sign a power of
attorney giving them full con-
trol of her assets.
Before the woman's death,
her net worth was $1.2 million.


When she died, she was finan-
cially depleted.
If you are a victim of fraud,
don't hesitate to contact your
local police department or the
attorney general in your state of
residence.

Methodist pastor Dean Brown retires after 40 years of ministry


SEBRING Pastor Dean
Brown has retired after 40 years
of ministry, with 20 of those
spent at St. John United
Methodist Church.
He delivered his final sermon
at the church May 14 with for-
mer members and many of his
friends in attendance.
In March a retirement dinner
honored Brown and his wife,
Carol. The $4,500 raised from
the dinner was donated to the
building of a Habitat for


Humanity home. The couple
has been actively involved with
Habitat over the years.
During his tenure at the
church, Brown was known for
offering his guidance, prayers
and help to anyone in need. He
shared his congregation's chal-
lenges, joys and sadness, and
encouraged members to follow
their dreams and use their abili-
ties in service to the church and
community.
Along with preaching, he fre-


quently ministered through his
musical talents.
The Browns are moving to
Lakeland. They plan to spend
retirement golfing, doing yard
work and traveling.
Assistant Pastor Jack Corn
will take over the pastoral
duties of the church until new
pastor Ron DeGenaro Jr. arrives
from Tampa in June.
Alberto Marquez is leading
the church's Hispanic services.


AMERICAN
Continued from 1C
els. My favorite older American is Una Tomlinson-Clarke. She
is the first African-American woman to be elected into the office of
New York City Council.
I admire Ms. Clarke who often refers to me as her grandson, for
her dedication to early childhood education. She has passed legis-
lation to improve educational standards in New York. Her love for
children is displayed in her actions and by the way she speaks to us
with words of encouragement.
She also worked with organizations to offer scholarships to high
school children with a G.P.A. (grade point average) of 3.0 or high-
er. So far many students who could not afford to attend college
have received the scholarship.
Ms. Clarke was appointed to head the economic development
program in Brooklyn by the governor of New York, George Pataki.
This program helps to fund businesses. She also received the Ellis
Island Medal of Honor.
Ms. Clarke is 67 years old and is married to Leslie Clarke Sr.
They have two children, Leslie Jr. and Yvette. Yvette, following in
her mother's footsteps, is now a New York City Council woman
herself. Leslie is employed at ABC (American Broadcasting
Company).
In conclusion, Ms. Clarke, a former teacher, is nurturing, kind
and generous. She told me that she grew up poor and that being
poor is not a crime, stealing and making wrong choices that cause
harm to others is a crime. When I lived in New York I used to visit
her often. She would say to me, "Come here son. You have a very


PLACES to


bright future ahead of you, don't ever allow anyone to discourage
you." I can still hear her saying those words when I feel discour-
aged.


Honorable Mention
Dana Barajas Gibney
Lake Placid Elementary
I know older Americans that have had good and bad experiences
throughout their lives, but one that I look up to is Mrs. Rock: She
is a member of my church and community.
As a member of my church I see Mrs. Rock every Sunday but
that's not the only place I see her. The reason is she helps out all
over the community. She lends a hand to anyone that needs it. She
always seems to have a smile on her face. She tells stories about
helping out. Some are sad. Some are happy, but they always seem
to catch my attention.
Mrs. Rock has children that have grown and have children of
their own. But she still thinks of the Sunday school students as her
children. She believes in us and wants us to be good kids. She treats
all of us equally. I know everyone who has met Mrs. Rock will
agree that she is friendly, lovable and caring.
Mrs. Rock has taught me many things. She taught me that it
doesn't matter how old you are, you can make a difference. She
also taught me to never give up and to try to have fun and be a kid
as long as you can. When Mrs. Rock speaks from her heart her
words are always true.
Mrs. Rock is a great person that doesn't let her age stop her from
having fun and being the wonderful person she is and that's why I
think of her as my favorite Older American.

cation of this notice to request the opportunity

ed, it will be held Thursday, June 30, 2005, at
5:45 p.m. Any person desiring to attend such
a hearing is requested to call the Superintend-
ent's office to verify whether such hearing has
been requested. The purpose and effect of the
proposed rule is as follows: (1) Changes to
kindergarten report card ensuring grades are
given in all subjects required by law; (2) Clari-
fication of requirements to earn promotion
from each grade to the next; (3) Further clari-
fication regarding amount and type of reme-
diation that must be provided to students who
are not on grade level or are not proficient on
FCAT; (4) Clarification on the requirements for

vation or international trade and/or alternative
approaches to the regulatory objective either

menting and enforcing the proposed rule or

Crosson wraps up



undefeated season


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
AVON PARK-Kasey Martin and
Amber Tindell combined to pitch Travis
Crosson Tree Service past Jolly's Lawn
Service 15-6 on Thursday night at Lucy
Derkman Complex, completing an
undefeated season with a record of 12-0
in the 12-and-under league.
"These girls jelled as a team,"
Crosson coach Joe Pugliese said. "There
were no superstars. They were all team-
mates. They came to every practice and
every game. They even showed up when
they were sick."
Jolly's posted a 1-0 lead in the top of
the first when Britney Scranton stole
home, but Crosson answered quickly in
the bottom of the inning when Tindell
led off with a single and scored on an
error to tie the score and Katelynn
Rogers drew a walked and later stole


home.
Martin singled but was forced out at
second on Brekayla Engish's ground
ball, but Lindsey Walker and later
scored as did Caitlyn Johnson for a 5-1
lead.
Jolly's closed the gap in the second.
Cheyenne Mills walked and later scored
on a steal. Shelby Arledge and Morgan
Toole walked and Scranton drove a solid
single to drive in both for a score of 5-4.
Crosson rallied for six runs in the bot-
tom of the second. Tindell singled to
start the inning and Rogers followed
with a walk. Martin singled to drive in
Tindell before English walked to load
the bases and Wedemier was hit by a
pitch, scoring Rogers.
Zakia Hard and Caitlynn Benton
reached base on a walk and a fielder's
choice, respectively, and both scored by

Baker, Knight deliver

home runs to lead way

in 8-4 victory Thursday
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING The Firemen used a four-
run fourth inning to break open a tie game

and relief pitcher Jesse Baker made the lead
stand up for an 8-4 win over Bayview on
Thursday.
The scort~was tied. a( 4-4 '\ie' Baker ,.
relieved starter Evan Lewis with two run-
ners on and no outs in the top of the fourth.
Baker proceeded to retire the next three bat-
ters to get out of the jam, and sat dow n the
next five in a row to boot, striking out a
pair, to keep Bayview from scoring again.
Meanwhile, 'the Firemen offense put
together a four-run fourth to take the lead.
Lewis started the rally by reaching on an
error and Justin Acevedo followed w th a
walk to set up. consecutive RBI singles
from Baker and Jonathan Knight to make It
6-4. Jacob Hensley plated Baker with a
groundout and Knight scored after being
caught in a rundown between third and
home to put the Firemen ahead by four.
The Firemen started off the game on a
high note, getting a run-scoring double
from Baker and a Knight's third home run
of the season, a solo shot to dead center, for
a 2-0 lead.
But Bayview came right back with four
runs -in the top of the third. Derek
McKenzie was hit by a pitch and scored on
Aaron Hart's double for the first run arid
Hart scored to tie the game when Danny
Ware reached on an error.
Josh Gomez's sacrifice bunt drove in
Ware to give Bayview the lead and Ricky
Rivera extended that lead by a run with a
run-scoring double to drive in Kyle
Yarbrough.
One swing of Baker's bat got the
Firemen back to even, however. One out

Brearnna Tate puts the ball in play and reaches on an error for
Great Fruit Company on Thursday.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING It doesn't mat-
ter how you score your runs,
only that you score them.
The Great Fruit Company
took advantage of 16 errors and
pounded out 17 hits of its own
to roll up a 22-5 victory over
All-Star Car Sales in a 16-and-
under game Thursday at Max
Long Recreational Complex.
Aspen Kuhn and Somer
Smith had three hits apiece and
Jamie Hershkowitz had a dou-
ble, triple and four RBIs to pace
the Great Fruit attack. Hannah
Shoop kept All-Star at bay in
the circle, giving up only six
hits and three earned runs while
striking out six for the win.
Great Fruit grabbed control


quickly, scoring three runs
without the benefit of a hit in
the top of the first to pull in
front. All-Star responded when
Nicki Helms, who was 3-for-3,
led off the bottom of the first
with a double and came home
on two errors. Ricki Albritton
walked and Priscilla Adams
drove her in with a single to
make it 3-2.
Great Fruit widened its lead
in the top of the third, this time
using singles by Camiel White,
Sam Mitchell and Smith to go
up 6-3. A Hershkowitz double
in the fourth and an Aspen
Kuhn bunt single in the fifth
were the centerpieces of two
more three-run innings that put
Great Fruit up 12-4 after six.

All that was missing
were Jimmy Fallon and
Drew Barrymore.
Parallels to the Western
Hemisphere sport of base-
ball aren't exactly what you
expect at the European
Champions League final,
but when I tuned into
Wednesday's game in
Istanbul, I couldn't help but
note the similarities.
The score was 3-0 AC
Milan at the time I hap-
pened by ESPN2. I had
stopped the clicker merely
to listen to color commen-
tator Tommy Smyth's
delightful Irish brogue for a
few minutes, which is wild-
ly entertaining even if he's
describing a trip to the post
office.
In October, I watched
Game 4 of the ALCS,
which the Yankees led 3-0,
simply because I wanted to
watch one more baseball
game with my best friend
before I moved to Florida. I
had no real interest in that
game after all, who was
coming back from down 3-
0? -just as I felt less than
' compelled to watch a
Blowout soccer match.
Aiid whe-Liverpool
keeper Jerzy ludek made a
brilliant .ia\e ,n a free kick
to keep his team from
falling further behind, I met
it with the same yawn that I
gave Dave Roberts' stolen
base in Game 4.
I'll admit the notion of a
comeback did pop into my
head when Steven Gerrard
scored the first Liverpool
goal, but it was so far-
fetched and laughable as
the notion that an extra-
inning win for the Red Sox
that night in October was a
portend of something
unprecedented and amaz-
ing.
After all, as Smyth
pointed out, only once had
a team come back from
even one goal down to win
a Champions League final.
And before last October, no
one had so much as even
forced a Game 7 after trail-
ing 3-0 in a postseason
baseball series, much less
win it.

on May 2, but it was quickly
apparent on Wednesday that
things were going to be differ-
ent this time around. Hoffner
struck out the side in each of the
first two innings, allowing just
one Elk to reach base, while the
Lions tallied five runs in the
same span to take control.
After Matthew Grubb sin-
gled and scored on a Johnny
Vega walk in the first, Phillip
Gilroy singled to drive in Josh
Heflin in the second to make it
2-0. An error allowed Gilroy to
score and Grubb's two-out sin-
gle kept the inning alive for
Hoffner, who smoked the first
pitch he saw well over the cen-
ter-field fence to make it a 5-0
game.
Two errors and Matt
Wilkerson's RBI double put the
Lions up 7-0 after three innings
before Seth Abeln reached on a
dropped pop-up and worked his
way around to score on a stolen
base and two wild pitches to


give the Elks (8-4) their first
run.
Tori Pringle walked and later
scored on a wild pitch in the top
of the fifth to make it 7-2, but
the Lions responded with back-
to-back RBI singles from
Heflin and Austin Blanco in the
bottom of the inning.
Hoffner had accounted for 14
of the first 15 outs himself with
13 strikeouts and a grounder
back to the mound, but Abeln
broke up his no-hit bid by lead-
ing off the top of the sixth with
a solid double to right-center.
Kyle Cunningham's
grounder then hit Abeln
between second and third, giv-
ing Cunningham a single but
also giving the Elks an out, and
Hoffner followed with two
strikeouts to end the game in
style.
Sertoma 5
Rotary 3
It ended as a wet one
Wednesday as Sertoma beat
Rotary 5-3 in four innings
before the game was'officially
called because of rain and light-
ening that had hovered around
Max Long Recreational
Complex for close to half an
hour.
The game started off close as
Rotary started off with two runs
when Eric Dunn was hit by a
pitch to get on base and then


FRUIT

S Yet the Great Fruitbats ignit-
ed in earnest in the seventh,
when 10 runs came home on
seven hits. Shoop supported her
effort on the mound with a two-
O run single, while Chastity
Godfrey got both of her hits,
both singles, in the final inning.
Katie Bullard walked and
)came home on an error for All-

scored on a hit by Steven Dunn,
while Michael Grimaldo got on
base with a fielder's choice and
then scored on a T.J.
McGlinchey single.
In the bottom of the frame
Sertoma came right back with
runs from Wyatt Johnson and
C.J. Payne. Johnson singled to
get on base and then was driven
in by a Jake Bryan single and
Payne drew a walk and then a
Colton Driggers double brought
him home.
With the score tied at two,
Sertoma came up big in the bot-
tom of the second inning.
Johnson got things started again
with a single and Payne walked
to get on base. Buddy Mays
then came up to the plate and
blasted a double into center
field to bring in the two men on
base. Then Mays stole his way
home to put his team up 5-2.
Rotary was able to get one
last score in the top of the third
inning when McGlinchey sin-
gled to get on base and then was
able to sprint home after a wild
pitch.
Rotary challenged in the top
of the third when they had men
on first and second. Steven
Dunn then hit a blooper to left,
but Mays streaked in and made
a fantastic catch and then had
the wherewithal to throw out
the man on second who had


Star's third-inning run, and
Alexis Willey singled and
scored an All-Star run in the
fifth. Sandra Flores, who
relieved Helms on the mound,
walked and scored in the sev-
enth for the team's fifth run.
Yet Godfrey scored five runs
by herself for Great Fruit.
Shoop scored four, and
Brearnna Tate pulled off a rare
feat, scoring four times without
the benefit of a hit.

ball would drop to get the
double play and keep his team
on top.
The win put Sertoma at 5-7
on the season while Rotary
dropped to 3-7.

Lions 17
Sertoma 3
The Lions pounced on
Sertoma with 14 runs in the top
of the fourth inning to blow
open a 3-3 game on the way to
a 17-3 rout.
Corbin Hoffner and Matthew
Grubb both had three hits and
drove in four runs in the big
inning for the Lions, while
Taylor Townsend, Garrett
Lewis and Johnny Vega each
had two hits and Alex Rosa,
Matt Wilkerson and Josh Heflin
each had one hit.
Grubb got the win after com-
ing on in relief of Austin Blanco
in the top of the third with the
score tied and striking out the
side.

MYRON
Continued from 1E
But when Vladimir Smicer
followed with another goal two
minutes later, I rushed to start
compiling the similarities. The
idea that another red-clad team
could pull off an upset against
the longest of odds was just
too tempting.
As was the thought of
Gerrard, the Liverpool captain
on the verge of free agency,
just like Pedro Martinez. Jamie
Carragher, who seemed des-
tined to go off on a stretcher
just seconds before making a
game-saving defensive play,
could be Liverpool's Curt
Schilling.
Even the cities from which
the teams hail are equally
interesting. Boston has a long
history of sporting mysticism,
from the snakebitten Red Sox
to legendary Celtics to the
dynastic Patriots. Liverpool,
perhaps the least likely of
British hubs to produce cultur-
al icons, sprang forth with the
greatest of them all The
Beatles.
But Xabi Alonso's goal at
the 60-minute mark ensured
that win or lose, the members
of the 2005 Liverpool club had

11-4.
Cheyenne Mills scored
another for Jolly's after being
hit by a pitch.
Reigly Miller walked and
later scored on an error to cut
the lead to 11-6.
Crosson added four more
runs in the third on walks and
an RBI single by English.
The 15-6 lead held as Martin
pitched a scoreless fourth
inning, despite a leadoff single

forever assured their place in
the town's tapestry alongside
Lennon, McCartney et al. To
merely come back to tie was
an achievement unto itself.
To come back all the way
would be downright Red Sox-
ian. Yet when the game came
down to a penalty shootout,
there was Dave Roberts, er,
Dudek, rather, making the
game-winning save.
Out came the trophy, carted
onto the field by a woman in
an ornate dress that made her
look like a giant lobster at
Mardi Gras. It was then that I
felt my only pang of regret that
afternoon, because I realized
that not only had the Farrelly
brothers missed out on casting
Smyth in "Fever Pitch," but
they had blown a sure costume
design Oscar as Well.
Not to mention the fact AC
Milan has a player named
Kaka. The world is left only to
imagine what the makers of
"There's Something About
Mary" could have done if they
had the cameras rolling on
him.
Oh well. There's always the
next time something impossi-
ble happens.

Genice Carr had a pair of sin-
gles and Carr recorded four

a single for the Elks and so did
