Deputies bring 'Harmony' to the streets


Part of larger effort to

reduce crime and

reach out to kids
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Starting at 10 a.m.
Monday, the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office will start up "Harmony in the
Streets," a summer youth program to
focus kids in the community on making
the right choices.
Sgt. Monica Sauls has about 50 par-
ticipants, 6-12 years old, to take a trailer
of sports equipment, healthy snacks and
other materials to the Star Center in
Highway Park. She -.along with school
resource officer deputies, a team from
the Florida Sheriff's Association and
several college students will run the
program.
She hopes to do a different neighbor-
hood each year and hopefully reach
every child in the county.
It's all part of a larger plan to bring
greater crime prevention into the schools
and neighborhoods. For example, four of
the Highlands County School District
deans and two assistant principals will
take school resource officer training
along with the officers from their
schools. It will help them work together
with the officers to prevent crime and
defuse situations on campus.
All told, Dan Coons with Lake Placid
High School, Coach Derrell Heckman
and Marie Wilson from Lake Placid
Middle School, Jim Howard with
Sebring High School, Rick Little from
Hill-Gustat Middle School, and Chief
Tealy Williams with the Junior Reserve
Officers' Training Corps will take the

The Salvation Army


branch nets state award


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING When the hurricanes
roared through Florida last year, mem-
bers of the Highlands County branch
of The Salvation Army had to scram-
ble to keep their probation operations
going.
Now, they have been honored with a
statewide award from Florida's
Salvation Army headquarters for their
efforts.
Local Salvation Army Director of
Probation Services Yvonne Fernsler
received the award at ceremonies in
Tampa earlier this month. The plaque
was presented by State Director of
Probation Offices Fred Hipp.
"We gave it to them for what they
went through during the hurricanes,"
he said. "Not only did they have to
relocate, but they supported the corps
and they worked our canteens too.
They just did a magnificent job. It
absolutely was service above and
beyond the call of duty."
It all began when the Kenilworth
offices of The Salvation Army was
rendered uninhabitable when it lost its


roof during the storms.
"We had just one day to move. We
had to be up and running the next day,"
Fernsler said.
The staff first made a move from the
Kenilworth Boulevard office to The
Salvation Army church home on
Ridgewood Drive.
"We lost a few things in the transi-
tion but not a lot of equipment,"
Fernsler said. "But we did have to dry
a few computers out."
A makeshift office was established
using file cabinets to create a waiting
area. Counselors had to work off the
top of folding tables.
Space was at a premium then, and
even the small church sanctuary was
pressed into service. It was being used
as a combination work area for
finance, administration and social
services all of which also had to be
relocated.
While they await their regulate
offices to be fixed S.A. Capt. Mary
Holmes found temporary lodging for
the probation services in the MacBeth
building at 224 S. Commerce Ave.,

Community advised to form corporation


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
the Washington Heights com-
munity heard plans Thursday
for their area similar to what
they heard in April, with one
exception: Form a community
corporation.
Pete Pollard, executive direc-
tor of the Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency, said
the city already has a $1.25 mil-
lion Community Development
Block Grant application in the
works at the Department of
Community Affairs for
streetscaping work in the city


portion of the community.
It has a good chance for
approval, Pollard said. It would
improve sidewalks, curbs, and
gutters in northeast Sebring,
including the city jurisdiction
side of Highlands Avenue, now
named Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard, between Grove
Avenue and Sheriff's Tower
Road. Also, it may improve
streets along Lemon Street
between Highlands Avenue and
the CSX railroad crossing, from
there along Pear Street to North
Ridgewood, and on North
Ridgewood Drive from the
Parkway to Helena Street.


According to Pollard, the city
should have an answer on it by
the end of July. It's rated third
out of five against other cities
for the grant funds.
To Pollard, people at the
Thursday's meeting at the Boys
& Girls Club of Highlands
County sounded like they not
only want to improve the area,
but they will. To get more fund-
ing and be taken more seriously
by statewide grant programs, he
recommends they form a neigh-
borhood community develop-
ment corporation.
"It shows a strong commit-
ment," he said, and opens the


area to funding sources for var-
ious activities."
Robert Saffold, of the Men of
Action community group, said
community members are work-
ing with attorney Andrew
Jackson, also al county com-
missioner, to complete articles
of incorporation.
In the meantime, however, he
hopes' the city has a plan to do
improvements in the area even
if the grant application isn't
approved.
"We can wait (for another
grant) if something is done peri-
odically," he said.
The sooner they can get start-


ed on getting a grant or city
help, the sooner they will have
the improvements they want, he
said. Pollard gave them infor-
mation they did not have
before, but they would like to
have it earlier.
Meanwhile, the community
will have a neighborhood
cleanup from June 6-10, Saffold
said. He hopes to get city assis-
tance with a truck and front-end
loaders, tools from Rebuilding
Together, and waived tipping
fees at the county landfill.

HIGHLANDS

in brief


Pipeline open
June 1

SEBRING -
Gulfstream Natural Gas
will begin full operations
Wednesday.
The pipeline will begin
pumping 350 million cubic
feet of natural gas per day
on Wednesday to the
Florida Power and Light
power plant in Martin
County.
Chris Stockton, commu-
nications director with the
Williams Company, said
the company has contracts
for 700 million cubic feet
of natural gas per day to
Florida Power and Light as
well as other customers.
The pipeline, he said, has
the capacity to deliver one
billion cubic feet of natural
gas per day to Florida.
In only three years of
operation, Stockton was
surprised to have its capac-
ity 70 percent sold.
The contract with
Florida Power and Light
depends on approval from
the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission,
Stockton said, but the com-
pany expects no problems
there.
The pipeline has been in
use since February, he said,
doing pumping tests to
make sure the entire sys-
tem was ready.
Road work
BARTOW On U.S.
17/State Road 35 in
DeSoto County, the Florida
Department of
Transportation has closed
the southbound lane just
- south of Arcadia, near the
Massachusetts Street inter-
section in Fort Ogden.
The closure is due to a
large depression in the
roadway caused by a
recent utility installation.
The northbound lane ,
remains open and flagging
crews are directing both
north and south bound traf-
fic through this lane.
Polk County 1-4 will not
be conducting construction
until after the Memorial
Day Weekend!

Chamber banquet celebrates business, learning


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Bouquets of
balloons, an ice dolphin and
live baby chicks were only
some of the decorations turning
the Quality Inn's Plantation
Ball Room into a feast for the
eye Thursday night.
The occasion was the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce's annual banquet.
The mood was festive and light,
the night topped off with
Kenilworth Lodge's manager
Don Elwell doing a manic turn
as auctioneer. Chamber mem-
bers were in a mood to laugh.
"It's been a wild year," said
President Mike Carter, as he
opened the evening.
And it ended with a wild ride,
as Alan Jay Wildstein chal-
lenged members to stand up, be
counted and pledge contribu-
tions to the chamber's scholar-
ship fund.
In a matter of minutes cham-
ber members raised $13,350,
which Wildstein, as he has done
in the past, will match.
The live auction that fol-
lowed added another $4,000 for
a total of $30,700.
The chamber has long been a
champion of education in
Highlands County. The out-
pouring of support, while the
largest amount anyone could
remember, was not new.
Two students were each
awarded a $3,000 scholarship
Thursday night.


Amanda Hall will be attend-
ing the University of Florida
where she wants to study public
relations and broadcast journal-
ism. She graduated with a grade
point average of 4.8, and was a
member of the Show Choir, the
honor society and the student
government. Out of school she
flew as Peter Pan in the Little
Highlands Theater production.
Hall, who was unable to
attend, gave special recognition
to Sandra White, choral director
at the high school.
Ryan Sands also received a
$3,000 scholarship. He is going
to South Florida Community
College, and then on to the
University of Central Florida
where he wants to study Web
design and math. He graduated
with a 4.2 GPA and plays alto
sax and electric guitar. He also
served as Sebring's drum major.
Sands recognized Daniel
Frankenberger, band director at
the high school, as the teacher
who gave him critical encour-
agement. "He told me I could
go out there and do it," he said.
Brand new high school grad-
uates weren't the only ones
honored, however.
In a presentation that caught
her totally by surprise, Judy
Harris, who has long coordinat-
ed the student of the month pro-
gram from which the two final-
ists are selected, was awarded a
scholarship of her own. Retired
from the business world, she
has returned to school and is


Alan Jay Wildstein led the chamber Thursday night in raising a total of $30,700 for future scholarships
in a matter of minutes. Judy Harris, who helps coordinate the student program and is a student in her
own right, was awarded a scholarship of her own.


studying at SFCC.
But the evening was as much
a celebration of recovery, as
anything else. Business hasn't
just survived last year's devas-
tating hurricane season, Carter
said, it's thriving.
Even the transition of cham-
ber leadership, as Allon Fish
retired and Dan Andrews took
over as executive director, has


Don Elwell, normally the mild mannered manager of the Kenilworth Lodge, sprang as if from a phone
booth to the front of the room, and wowed chamber members by being a superman of auctioneers.
That's Toni Copp, the chamber's finance manager, helping Elwell out.

worked out for the best. One
hundred and seventeen new
members enrolled during the
membership drive, bringing
total membership to 476.
"We're having a fantastic
spring," Carter said, "building a
lot of momentum."

Three chamber members
who helped create that momen-


turn were recognized Thursday
night as well.
Terry Earwood, with Skip
Barber, was named Volunteer of
the Year.
The Florida Hospital
Heartland Division was named
Business of the Year.
And Dr. Norman Stephens,
president of SFCC, was named
Director of the Year.

arship, but she was unable to attend.

Lorida dedicates new fire truck OBITUARIES


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING By all accounts, Don Fogle was
the spirit of the Lorida Volunteer Fire
Department.
Lorida volunteer firefighters couldn't think of
anyone more deserving of having a truck named
after him. On Saturday, they dedicated a new
first-out engine to Don Fogle, who died last year
after struggles with emphysema.
"He was very ambitious and a hard worker,"
said his wife, June. "He gave 100 percent and
expected 100 percent. All he did, he did whole-
heartedly."
This included writing donation letters and
grants to raise money for the rural fire depart-
ment, after his illness made him unable to do
physical work.
The Rev. Clyde Weaver, assistant pastor at
SpringLake United Methodist Church, blessed
the truck and asked people to remember the serv-
ice done for them, and give back.
Steve Hutchison, president of the Lorida Fire
District Board, said Fogle taught him'optimism
and responsibility. People in the 252-square-mile
Lorida Fire District should look forward to hav-
ing great service from their fire department and
should take responsibility to support it financial-
ly or as volunteers themselves.
"We want to see this become the vision Don
had," he said.
When the department started looking for a new
truck, they wanted a brush truck, said Lorida Fire
Chief Gerald Martin. Engine 23 was actually an
overstock at E-One fire apparatus company in
Ocala. It has a 1,000-gallon water tank and a
1,250 gallon-per-minute pump.
The company was willing to work with
Highlands County on the price and some incen-
tives. Ultimately, Lorida fire department got the
truck for $132,000, with tools and equipment,


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
On Saturday morning, the Rev. Clyde Weaver,
assistant pastor at SpringLake United Methodist
Church, (right) blesses Engine 23, and dedicates
the new first-out engine in the memory of Don
Fogle, a tireless worker for the Lorida Volunteer
Fire Department. Fogle's wife June (seated) cut
the ribbon to dedicate the truck. She said her hus-
band of seven years was dedicated to raising funds
for the department to improve fire service for the
district.

four self-contained breathing apparatus packs
and a deck gun. The county had to buy a genera-
tor and scene lights.
With a $90,000 down payment, the department
only had to finance $42,000 through the county.
Now the department has equipment for four sta-
tions, as soon as two of those stations get built in
SpringLake and at the Highlands County
Landfill, Martin said.
Lt. Shawn Graham said the money they saved
on the truck from the expected cost of $160,000
is nearly half the department's annual budget.
Trucks are spread around from Lorida, the land-
fill, SpringLake and Boondock Road.
Smaller departments, Graham said, have only
so many trucks.
"We have to do more with less," he said.

SEBRING A five-hour
safety checkpoint Friday night
on Lakeview Drive, netted
seven arrests for driving under
the influence and two for drug
possession.
Sebring police set up Friday
in the parking lot of Village
Square shopping plaza, the for-
mer Winn-Dixie supermarket.
At 10 p.m., they began stopping
cars on Lakeview Drive. Cones
closing off the center turn lane
and entrances, to the parking lot
directed drivers to stay driving
forward, until stopped by an
officer.
By 1 a.m. Saturday, police
had already arrested seven peo-
ple, five on DUI, two on drug
charges, and one for an out-
standing warrant. Sgt. Greg
Barlaug, who set up the check-
point, chose Friday night partly
for logistical reasons and
because it was starting the
Memorial Day weekend.
He chose Lakeview Drive
because Sebring Police
Department statistics show
more DUI arrests on that street
than any other in the city. When
asked why he didn't choose
U.S. 27, he said the department
would need twice the number of

said.
"Basically, we're letting peo-

Barlaug said, "and if you are
going to drink, designate a driv-

Eight officers worked the
scene, with another driving in

They stopped cars at the inter-
section of Lakeview Drive and
Chicago Avenue, asked for dri-

Trim work


Sebring police officers done writing


warnings, now it's parking tickets


By BARRY FOSTER
4, News-Sun
SEBRING For a couple of
r weeks, Sebring police officers
Sa have been writing warning tick-
ets to people who have parked
their cars illegally or improper-
ly in the city.
Now that's over.
"We started writing citations
on Monday, which was the end
of the two-week grace period,"
Sebring Police Commander
Steve Carr said.
He said there had been "pret-
ty good" compliance and
although there had not been a
"tremendous amount" of cita-
tions written, officers had start-
S-ed writing them.
"Some of the things that were
JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun easily identifiable like park-
Avon Park resident Ron Cherrier trims fascia to fit on his friend's Lake Avenue home in Avon ing the wrong way on the street
Park on Thursday. Cherrier said he was fixing damage that occurred during the hurricanes last on some of our main thorough-
fall. fares have cleared up to a
good degree," he said.



Avon Park summer recreation programs to start


Carr also pointed to parking
problems around the Highlands
County Courthouse, where
some motorists had been park-
ing too close to the intersec-
tions. He said that situation also
seemed to have abated to a
degree.
"It is crowded over there, but
people are just going to have to
walk a little further." he said.
"And we have had some people
who habitually park across
sidewalks.. That has been
addressed and they've stopped
doing it. So we've had a lot of
corrective action taken and it


seems to be working."
Carr said that to date there
had not been any angry calls.
"Most of the people who
have called in have just wanted
information," he said. "It has
been more questions than any-
thing else."
Carr said he believed that
now officers had started writing
actual traffic tickets, the prob-
lems may go away even more
quickly.
"Some people think the
warning is like a bluff. Some
people don't get it the first time,
but the majority do," he said.

AVON PARK Classes are
out at the Highlands County
public schools, and that means
it is time for the Avon Park
Recreation Department to host
its annual summer youth pro-
grams.
For the first time this year,
there actually will be two dif-
ferent programs.
As usual, there will be the
program for youths 6-12. That
is slated to beginning, on
Monday, June 6. Activities
again will include such things
as basketball, football, kickball.
floor hockey, tennis and soccer.
Also planned are board games
and arts and crafts.
This year, there also is a new
program to be offered for
youths aged 13-17. Activities
there will include basketball
tournaments, football games,
table tennis tournaments, ten-
nis, soccer and even swimming.
That will begin Tuesday.
BotI sessions wilt run through
-- -Ju, 29. C .. .
Jin the past we've had the
teenagers come in when we


took the kids to lunch so this
year we decided to offer them a
program as well," Avon Park
Parks and Recreation
Department directorr Tony
Anderson said.
The teen program will begin
mornings at 8 a.m. with the
children's program to begin a
hall hour later. The teen pro-
gram also will be over at 2 p.m.
while the children's program
will continue on until 4:30 p.m.
Anderson said that's because
he hopes to be able to shuffle
the programs around to make
room for everybody to share the
facilities.
"We're starting the program
for the teens a week early to try
and gel their schedule estab-
lished," he said.
Once *oth programs are
melded at the Memorial Field
site off East State Street,
Anderson said the idea would
be to put one program in one
section, while moving the other
to a different side.
"Both programs are going to
have d-'fo'wrk together. We don't
have a big facility." he said.
"For instance when the teens


are playing basketball, the
younger kids can do arts and
crafts. Then later when the
older kids go swimming, the
children can play floor hockey
or something."
Because of the large outdoor
green space and a capacity of
590 inside the recreation center
itself, Anderson believes he
could make the program work.
Even with the increased par-
ticipation, Anderson said he
would be running the program
without an increase in staff.
He said that was because he
did not expect to have a large
teen turnout, and the older kids
would be able to continue activ-
ities once they got started.
"Most of the teenagers don't
really want a structured pro-
grain," he said. "I think one
staff member and myself can
monitor that."
Anderson said he would be
getting some big help from
Avon Park Middle School
coach Earnest Perkins in the
new program.
S"He's a football coach from
the Miami area," Anderson
said. "He used to work in parks


and recreation down there and
he really has a lot of experience.
I'm looking forward to working
with him."
Both the teens and the chil-
dren will go together for the one
planned field trip. That is
scheduled for June 29 when the
group will go to Tropicana
Field in St. Petersburg to see the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays play the
Toronto Blue Jays.
"Right now we have one bus
scheduled, but we may end up
taking two, depending on how
many sign up," he said.
Lunch will be offered for
each of the programs, through
July 15. After the free lunch
program ends, participants will
be responsible for bringing their
own meals.
Fees for each of the programs
are the same. They are $25 a
week for each participant and
$15 a week for each additional
family member.
"That would include brother,
sister, stepbrother or stepsister,"
he said.
i For those who .want to sign
up, information is available by "
calling 452-4414.

Kids are cautious about


2005 hurricane prediction


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun Correspondent
"The thing that I remember
the most is waking up to water
falling through the roof hitting
my hand, then hearing a big
'boom' as a tree fell on my
mom's bedroom."
"The two memories I have of
the hurricanes is the damage,
and the sad tweeting of a bird
outside my window."
"I remember houses falling
down, trees falling on cars and
trucks, and broken windows."
Eight months since three hur-
ricanes raked Highlands
County, these memories from
three middle school students
will stay in their minds for a
long time, maybe a lifetime.
As the 2005 hurricane season
begins, adults might do well to
take suggestions from some of
their children who experienced
Charley, Frances and Jeanne.
Recently, Lake Placid
Middle School sixth-graders,
ages 11-13, shared their memo-
ries of missing living through
the howling storms, missing
days of school and dealing with
inconveniences in the after-
math.
Counselors have suggested


that children deal with these
experiences better if they write
about them. They benefit from
sharing their feelings with other
and expressing the terror they
felt.
Many youngsters learned
from last year's experience and
have many suggestions to offer:
"Get a lot of water, canned
goods, and get a generator and a
flashlight."
"Make a list of everything
you want to buy, plan where
you are going to stay, or where
you are going to go."
"Don't get hyper; help your
family with anything."
"Buy lots of flashlights and
candles."
"Block the windows, get
water, and put blankets around
the freezer to keep it cold!"
"Buy batteries, buy water,
and pray it won't hit you."
"Make a plan of what to do
and what to get."
"Gather all your precious
possessions."
"Get a generator, get plenty
of food, board up your windows
and wait."
Wrote one young girl, "I'm
going to remind my parents to
gather precious belongings, and


get the supplies ready and make
a room in a closet so we can
take cover, and review hurri-
cane/tornado rules, if they have
any. Hopefully, if a hurricane
does come, less people will
die."
Many said they would do
things differently this year.
"I would be helpful and take
care of my family."
"Be more comprehensive,
have a lot more patience, and
help other people in danger."
"Behave, do what parents ask
you to do, or help on anything
they say for you to do."
One student seemed unfazed
by it all and wrote: "I'm just
going to sleep while it hap-
pens."
Emergency management
officials and counselors suggest
that 'parents and teachers help
children understand how to
track hurricanes and prepare for
them.
And in answer to this survey
question, "What is the most
important thing you learned
from experiencing these hurri-
canes?" one pragmatic hurri-
cane observer wrote: "Buy
heavier things."

Sebring all ready for



its golden anniversary


Editor's note: The News-
Sun has been publishing
news about Highlands
County since 1927. As a
treat for our readers, we
have gone through our
archives and pulled some
stories from previous issues
that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Oct. 4, 1962.
With more than 50 people
directly involved and hundreds
of others with more "than just a
passing interest" in the event,
residents of Sebring are all set
to observe the 50th anniversary
of the founding of the city next
week, Monday through
Saturday.
A final meeting of the gener-
al anniversary committee
- Thursday night saw the draw-
ing together of ietwailed plan,
for the observance and indiqid:
ual group sessions all this week
are being used to put the final
touches to the week-long pro-
gram in which all local resi-
dents are urged to participate.
Highlights of the week's
activities will begin with the
public reception at the Tourist
Club Tuesday night, a boat and
water ski show Wednesday
afternoon, the union worship
service at the high school audi-
torium on Wednesday night and
street dance Thursday night.
Other program features will
be highlighted by the 50th
anniversary parade Friday
afternoon, an entertainment
program and fish fry at the fair-
grounds Friday evening and a
football game Friday night.
Dedication of a memorial
plaque to the founders of
Sebring, a gigantic fireworks
display and final dance will cli-
max the week's program here.
Particular emphasis is being
placed on participation by the
local residents, General
Chairman Allen Altvater said
this week. "This anniversary
observance is as much an affair
for our own citizens as it is for
the many people we're expect-
ing to join us in our celebra-


tion," the chairman pointed out.
Although their individual
group meetings will involve
only organizational matters, the
three Sebring service groups -
Lions Club, Kiwanis Club and
Rotary Club are planning to
gear their early-week meetings
to the anniversary theme and
will honor long time members
and visiting club members at
their respective luncheons._
_Tuesda night's .rec~eii.o .n
,the Touinris Club will bWe public
affair and everyone is urged to
attend. City Councilman Gene
Sebring will serve as master of


ceremonies for a brief pro-
gram and P. G. Gearing, one
of the city's old-timers, will
head a reception line to greet
both visitors and local resi-
dents.
Out of town visitors are
requested to register at the
Chamber of Commerce
office upon their arrival in
Sebring. They will be pre-
sented with a packet of
materials including letters of
welcome from Mayor J. D.
Hunt; Ernest Breed, president
of the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, and complimentary
tickets to the various events
scheduled throughout the week.
Plans for the boat and water
ski show have been completed
for Wednesday afternoon and
promises to be a "colorful spec-
, lfcle", a ic,-rdin.- to counmittee |

Engineer wants 10 new positions


to keep up with development


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING With so many
people coming to buy or build
property in Highlands County,
the Engineering Department is
running to keep up.
Development reviews for
driveway permits have kept the
engineers in County Engineer
Ramon Gavarrete's stable rac-
ing to review and approve or
deny driveway permits. It's
definitely a fallout from devel-
opment, he said.
"My schedule is (set) two to
three months in advance,"
Gavarrete said. That doesn't
include situations where he
needs to confer with landown-
ers or businesses with concerns


over a major road ,or facilities
project.
As a rule, he always has the
10-year capital improvement
plan projects coming up.
Discussions with the Florida
Department of Transportation
have added the long-range pri-
ority needs map for him to
review and revise for the future.
"If I'm doing (work) in-
house, I need more engineers. If
not, I need engineers to manage
the contractors."
Either way, he figures he
needs 10 new positions in next
year's budget. In total, they
would add about $600,000 to
his budget.
Gavarrete wants another
two-person survey crew-to help


out the two-person crew he has.
It won't keep him from having
to contract survey work, but it
may help him keep up with the
demand.
He wants a computer-assist-
ed design technician who can
help render maps of road proj-
ects, as they change frequently
on several projects. He would
like to add two traffic techni-
cians to do road signs and pave-
ment marking, along with a
third technician to work on sig-
nals and road lighting.
Four other positions would
be administrative, including an
assistant county engineer, a
plan reviewer, a driveway utili-
ty inspector and a public works
specialist.


Changes won't help against 2005 hurricanes


By PHIL ATlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Last year was
a budget-blower for public safe-
ty. Three hurricanes hitting the
county used up a lot of reserve
manpower, equipment and
money.
Emergency Operations
Director Tim Eures said during
last week's budget workshops
his department will have to
repair a lot of hurricane damage
- mostly from damaged com-
munications towers and equip-


ment.
If the same thing happens
this year, though, he won't be
able to do anything about it.
Last year's hurricanes hit right
during last year's budget
process, so there wasn't time to
make changes for fiscal year
2004-05. Any changes to the
2005-06 budget won't take
effect until Oct. 1 late in the
hurricane season and likely
not until after any major storms
have already hit.
"We plan on not having any


hurricanes," Eures joked last
Monday, but followed the joke
with a look that said Highlands
County may certainly see its
share of storms.
Training is one of Eures'
major costs. He wants more
funding to get and keep his fire-
fighters up to state standards.
Eures and the Highlands
County Hazardous Materials
Team have already finished a
five-point training on extrica-
tion and rescue from difficult
situations.

Friday. She believes part of that
may be disruption from last
year's hurricanes, coupled with
hard times for the families.
- "Hard times are what make
us stronger," she said.


While the sheriff's office
works closer with the schools,
the sheriff's crime prevention
unit will work closer with crim-
inal investigations to help con-
trol or eliminate substance
abuse in the school system.
Thanking the school resource
officers, crime prevention spe-
cialists and commanders who
work with her, Sauls said pre-


vention officer are the unsung
heroes of any department. It's
an "immeasurable difference"
people may not see for years,
she said, "but it will come back
100-fold."
On a table at a thank-you
luncheon, she had printed, "It's
better to build a better build
than to repair an adult."

JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Highlands County Hazardous Materials Team member Luke
Andrews uses a Sawzall to cut the 'A Post' of a Geo Metro dur-
ing the vehicle extraction module of light technical rescue team
training in Lake Placid on Wednesday. The training consists of
five modules including rope rescue, confined space rescue,
trench rescue, dealing with structure collapse and vehicle
extraction. The team is already an asset to the state as a haz-
mat unit. Once the training is complete, Emergency
Management Director Bill Nichols said, Highlands County's
Haz-Mat Team will become even more valuable to county resi-
dents and those of surrounding counties.


AWARD
Continued from 1A
Sebring.
The move from the church to
that location also was' accom-
plished in a single day.
How long repairs will take
and when will they be back in
their main office is anybody's
guess. Fernsler said there still is
mold and other issues that need
to be dealt with.
"What is so amazing about


all this is that while these indi-
viduals were suffering personal
losses, damage to their homes
and extreme stress, they contin-
ued to run the probation pro-
gram throughout the transi-
tion," Hipp said. "Even as all of
this was happening, corrections
employees were providing
much-needed assistance in the
disaster arena. They worked on
the canteens, often leaving
those in the office shorthand-
ed."

Groundskeepers

are now doing

construction
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING With all of the
construction and refurbishment
going on in Highlands
County's public parks and
some public buildings, county
groundskeepers have become
carpenters.
That will affect how the
county funds small in-house
construction projects, from ren-
ovating an office to refurbish-
ing public restrooms at a park.
At last week's budget work-
shops, Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius said she
needs to change how she pays
her staff.
She is asking for upgrades in
her department, specifically
extra funding to retain or
retrain her groundskeeping
staff with carpentry skills.
She's wants to bring in
money from the Transportation
Trust Fund to cover the carpen-
try costs. Out of her five-man
crew, three would get paid
under the general fund and the
other two will get relocated to
the Road and Bridge
Department. By splitting up the
crew, she told Rick Helms,
director of the Office of
Management and Budget, she
could get the work done and
bill other departments as need-
ed.
Helms said this may elimi-
nate some of the steps the
county has to take to reimburse
Parks and Recreation for work.


office had shown "a willingness
to work together in crisis,
improvise, find options and
implement solutions." He also
cited the office for adaptability,
dedication and innovation.
"They have demonstrated a
capacity to make the best of
even the most difficult circum-
stances," he said.
Their boss echoed those sen-
timents.
"The staff here, did an out-
standing job. They really
deserve this award," Fernsler
said.

TOFFIW IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

How times

have changed
Here's the good news I
wasn't allowed anywhere near
the drugs at the Lake Placid
Drug Company, where I spent
time last week learning about
being a pharmacist. This
means customers were kept
safe.
Here's the bad news it
also means I didn't get to
make a fool of myself.
(Although the fact that I con-
sider this bad news probably
means I've written one column
too many.)
Actually, I went into this
assignment thinking I already
knew all I needed to know
about the world of pharmacies.
As a college undergraduate
years and years (and years)
ago, I worked in an independ-
ent pharmacy, as a clerk and
delivery boy.
Guess what. Times change.
And brother, have pharma-
cies changed since the early
'70s when I was delivering
tetracycline capsules, and sell-
ing Flintstone vitamins.
Not only has a veritable
tsunami wave of new medica-
tions swept the world, but
computers have been intro-
duced. And with the computers
came software, all of which
have revolutionized the indus-
try.
'Everything is processed
over the Internet now. With
just a few key strokes, phar-
macists can visit a drug manu- .
facturer's Web site, and find

Lake Placid landmark still going strong


Lake Placid
Drug Company
has maintained
business for
80 years
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID For 80
years the Lake Placid Drug
Company has been a fixture in
town.
Founded in 1925 by Lee
Crews and his wife, Lillian, the
business received a Millennium
Award as the longest, continu-
ing business operation in Lake
Placid.
Originally located on Main
Street, it moved to its present
location, 224 Interlake Blvd., in
1955 when Crews' daughter
and son-in-law, Dee Dee and
Charles Stidham, joined the
business. Both are still very
active, she as business manager,
he as pharmacist. They were
joined in 1982 by their son
Dean, who also is a pharmacist.
When the Lake Placid Drug
Company first opened its doors
U.S. 27 was a slow moving
two-lane road, and Interlake
Boulevard was only paved from
Main Street to the high school
(now part of South Florida
Community College's campus).
The town was smaller and sur-
rounded by thick woods. All its
business was located on Main
Street.
Crews worked alone and
typed up prescription labels, o
a manual typewriter. "He was
the fastest typist with two fin-
gers you ever saw," his grand-
son, Dean Stidham said.
Prescriptions were filed in a
Tampa Nuggets cigar box, and

The Stidhams own and operate the Lake Placid Drug Company. Dean, and his parents, Dee Dee and
Charles Stidham (from left), carry on in the tradition of Dee Dee Stidham's father, Lee Crews, who start-
ed the family business in 1925.


accounts were kept straight
with a hand-cranked adding
machine.
The store had a lunch count-
er with a soda fountain, and it
served up hot, home cooked
meals at noon. Lillian Crews
baked the pies, sometimes as
many as 15 a day.
While the lunch service con-
tinued after the store moved to
its present location, it was dis-
continued in 1978.


Today the business relies on
computers, and the pharmacists
have to deal with multiple lev-
els of bureaucracy. It has taken
some of the fun out of the work.
And the work load has risen
tremendously. In the old days, a
busy day meant 20 to 25 pre-
scriptions had been filled. Now
its more like 400.
The number of medications
has increased exponentially as
well. Pharmacists now have to


spend hours simply keeping
current. Big sellers today are'
medications for cholesterol,
heart disease, stomach acid and
diabetes.
One thing most pharmacists
do not do today, that Crews did
all the time, is make up oint-
ments, capsules, and supposito-
ries fresh in the pharmacy. At
Lake Placid Drug Company,
however, "fe owners carry on
that tradition when it's needed.


Dean Stidham, who became a
pharmacist like his father and
grandfather before him, demon-
strates how medicine capsules
are made. It is rare for a phar-
macy to custom make such med-
ications today. The sorting
machine he is using automati-
cally organizes the empty cap-
sules and removes the caps. The
pharmacist then fills them, and
by manipulating the machine it
replaces the caps.

In that same tradition, the
store posts emergency numbers
on its doors, so even if it's
closed, a pharmacist can be
reached for help.
The profession requires a
bachelor of science degree at a
minimum, but Stidham sees
changes coming. More schools
are offering a doctor of pharma-
cy degree, and he believes that
will one day be the standard.
Pharmacists typically earn
$75,000 to $80,000 per year.
Lake Placid Drug Company
is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday, and from 8 a.m.
to 2 p.m. Saturday.
The telephone number is
465-2751.

LAKE PLACID A Lake
Placid resident has been chosen
as a winner in the Rack Room
Shoes Models Wanted competi-
tion, a special promotion that
gives everyday shoppers a
chance to appear in advertising
targeted to millions of con-
sumers in a 24-state region.
"I was interested in pursuing
modeling when I was younger,"
said Douglas Smith, 37, a phys-
ical therapy aid. "Rack Room's
Models Wanted contest sparked
that interest again and I decided
to enter."
Smith said he was shocked
when he received the call from
Rack Room to congratulate him
on winning and a bit apprehen-
sive about the opportunity.
"I had no idea of what to
expect from the photo shoot,"
Smith said. "It was an awesome
experience, and I learned so
much about modeling. It's great
that Rack Room is giving this
opportunity to its customers."
The regional shoe chain has
received more than 2,000
entries for its 2005 program,
nearly double from last year.


Winners are featured in news-
paper inserts, in-store promo-
tional materials and on the
Rack Room Web site.
"We created Models Wanted
because we believe that using
actual Rack Room customers
lends tremendous credibility to
our advertising messages about
value and selection," said Jan
Mauldin, director of marketing
for Rack Room Shoes. "From
the surge in responses this year,
we are obviously connecting
with our customers. Who

Women urged to
get enough
calcium
SEBRING Osteoporosis
affects an estimated 44 million
people in the United States,
according to the National
Osteoporosis Foundation.
In honor of National
Osteoporosis Awareness
Month, the staff at General
Nutrition Center of Sebring is
offering advice on how to get
enough calcium in your diet,
which has been identified as a
key component in reducing the
risk of heart disease.
Nearly 50 percent of women
and 25 percent of men over the
age of 50 will have an osteo-
porosis-related fracture in their
remaining lifetime, according
to the NOF Along with weight-
bearing exercise, NOF recom-
mends a diet rich in vitamin D
and calcium to help prevent this
bone-weakening disease.
"Ninety-nine percent of the
calcium in your body is found
in the bones and teeth where it
is an essential structural com-
ponent," said Rachel Jones,
nutritionist at GNC.
If your calcium intake is too
low to meet metabolic
demands, your body's control
mechanisms will pull calcium
out of your bones to maintain a
healthy supply and to keep your
cells functioning normally.
"In other words, the rest of
your body takes precedence
over your bones when it comes
to available calcium," Jones
said. "For this reason, inade-
quate calcium intake can lead to
a weakening of the bones over
time."
The National Academy of
Sciences recommends that
Americans consume between
500mg and 1,300mg of calcium
daily. Accord to the United
States Department of
Agriculture, all age groups fall
short on getting the calcium
they need each day. For exam-
ple, anyone over the age of 50
should ingest 1,200 milligrams
of calcium each day.
To get adequate amounts of
calcium, the USDA recom-
mends three servings of dairy
products per day. One dairy


serving includes:
Milk: 8 ounces (1 cup)
contains up to 300 milligrams
of calcium.
Cheese (natural e.g.
Cheddar, Mozzarella): 1 to 1.5
ounces (the size of a matchbox)
contains up to 300 milligrams
of calcium.
Yogurt: 8 ounces (1 cup)
contains up to 400 milligrams
of calcium.
"If you can't get enough cal-
cium through your diet, we
strongly recommend a nutri-
tional supplement," Jones said.
Equally critical to the
amount of calcium intake is the
absorption rate of that calcium
into the bones. Not all calcium
sources are created equal in
terms of absorption. If you are
taking a supplement, Jones
said, it is important to consider
the type of calcium being used.
The most common calcium
source in supplements include:
Calcium citrate malate:
Calcium citrate malate is one of
the most absorbable calciums
available. It is composed of cal-
cium and two organic fruit


acids, citric acid (from citrus
fruits) and malic acid (from
apples). This form has the high-
est absorption rate of all calci-
um sources at 40 percent.
Calcium carbonate:
Calcium carbonate is mined
from the earth and has been one
of the most commonly used
source of supplemental calci-
um. It is the most economic
form of calcium and is available
in a variety of tablets, capsules
and chewables. Calcium car-
bonate is about 26 percent
absorbable.
Calcium citrate: Calcium
citrate is a combination of calci-
um and citric acid. Because
stomach acids are needed for
calcium to be absorbed by the
body, citric acid (from fruits)
provides a citric acidic environ-
ment for improved calcium
absorption. Calcium citrate is
about 24 percent absorbable.

plement, visit GNC's Web site

out just about anything they
need to know about any med-
ication.
New drugs are reaching the
market so fast, the famous
Physician's Desk Reference,
published annually, is usually
out of date by the time it
reaches print. With the new
Web site information sources,
pharmacists can obtain the
most up-to-date information all
the time.
But computers are used for
more than just a source of
information. Most of the com-
munication between the phar-
macist, the drug manufacturer
and the insurance company is
now done over the Internet.
The differences brought
about by this new technology
pale in comparison, however,
to the changes brought about
by the insurance industry itself.
"It's a lot different than it
was 30 years ago," said Dean
Stidham, a third generation
pharmacist and a member of
the family-owned business.
"Now we're ruled by insurance

companies.
"Today very few people
walk in the door and pay cash
-certainly less than 15 per-
cent."
Insurance companies often
determine what medication a
doctor's patient may use by
disallowing certain brands,
classes or types of medications.
They also often set the prices
as well.
Insurance companies now
use Pharmacy Benefits
Management, or third party
organizations, to manage their
drug problems.
"It's hard to stomach,"
Stidham said. "They pretty
much control what your
income is. What they're getting
to is they pay you the net cost
of the drug, and add a small
fee (usually less than $2). So
really you have to do a volume
business."
There is one development
Stidham sees as a very positive
one. Pharmacists are doing
more counseling and educat-
ing, and they are often the
monitor of a patient's medica-
tions.
Doctors are frequently
pressed for time and can't


always answer patient's ques-
tions. Or a patient may be see-
ing more than one doctor for a
variety of ailments. It's the
pharmacists who help keep
track of it all. They can warn
doctors of dangerous drug
combinations, or explain to a
patient in detail how to take a
drug, or what to expect from
one.
Lake Placid Drug Company
has signed a contract with
Medicaid to do this kind of
monitoring of its high risk
patients. Stidham feels it will
be this kind of service which
will be the primary source of
income for pharmacists in the
future.
But he welcomes this
change for a reason he thinks
is more important it gets
back to the heart of the old
fashioned pharmacy, where the
pharmacist knew the people
who walked through the door,
and provided personalized
service.
For example, Stidham was
working out a formula to con-
vert a medication that is only
available as a capsule into a
suspension (or liquid) form.
He's doing this because the

patient, an infant with intestin-
al problems, can't swallow the
capsule.
Despite the obvious pleasure
Stidham gets from helping the
people who come to him, he
has second thoughts about the
course of his career. He is no
longer sure he would do it all
over again if he had the
chance.
"There's so much uncertain-
ty, it's more of a-struggle
today," he said. Then he smiled
and shrugged his shoulders,
"But that's the real world," he
added before leaving the
counter to look at a young
woman's rash and offer advise.

Beef Checkoff Program helps fund American Heart Association's Lean Beef Cook Booklet


Searching to add more healthy beef
meals to your diet? Here's a solution.
Florida beef producers, as a part of the
Beef Checkoff Program, have teamed
with the American Heart Association
to fund a heart-healthy recipe cook
booklet, "Fast & Flavorful Beef:
Heart-Healthy Recipes," that features
lean beef cuts, cooking tips and nutri-
tional information.
The AHA's "Six Simple Steps to
Good Nutrition" are included, as well
as tips on how to include beef as part
of a heart-healthy diet. The book also
provides useful information comparing
the fat-acid content of beef to that of
chicken, tuna, salmon and olive oil.
The development of the checkoff-
funded cook .booklet and additional
resource materials is coordinated on
- half of the Cattlemen's Beef Board
and state beef councils by the National
Cattlemen's Beef Association. The


NCBA serves as one of the Beef
Board's contractors for checkoff-fund-
ed programs.
"This booklet offers residents of
Florida healthier and more flavorful
choices," said Polly Golden, executive
director of the Florida Beef Council.
"The glossy recipe booklet features 14
easy and flavorful lean-beef recipes,
with full-color photos, that demon-
strate how lean beef can add nutrition-
al power to your diet."
Heart disease is the leading cause of
death affecting more than 70 million
men and women in the United States,
according to the AHA. So it's impor-
tant to follow a balanced diet and exer-
cise regularly to help keep our hearts
and bodies in shape but can a heart-
healthy diet taste good and include
foods we love?
The American Heart Association
says yes. You can easily be good to


your heart and enjoy lean beef as part
of a heart-healthy diet. Remember
these points:
There are 19 cuts of beef that
qualify as "lean", according to govern-
ment guidelines. Each cut has less than
10 grams of total fat and 4.5 grams or
less of saturated fat per 3-ounce serv-
ing (A 3-ounce serving is about the
size of an adult's fist or a computer
mouse.) For example, a 3-ounce top
round steak contains 4 grams of fat.
For more information about lean beef
and a lean list wallet card, visit
www.beefitswhatsfordinner com.
Half the fatty acids in beef are
monounsaturated fatty acids the
same heart-healthy kind found in olive
oil.
Short- and long-term research
studies show lean beef can be included
as part of a low-fat diet plan to lower
cholesterol levels.


Making heart-healthy meals with
lean beef can be simple. Some tips for
your kitchen include:
When you're selecting a lean beef
cut, look for the words "round" or
"loin" in the name, such as sirloin or
round tip.
Trim visible fat away from beef
before cooking.
Look for lean ground beef, which
is labeled as 91 percent lean or leaner.
This ground beef can have as few as 5
grams of total fat per 3-ounce serving.
N. Rinse ground beef with water to
reduce fat.
Use low-fat cooking methods,
such as grilling, broiling, roasting,
pan-broiling, stir-frying, (using a mini-
mal amount of oil) and braising. Less
tender cuts of lean beef should be mar-
inated in a tenderizing marinade such


as Italian
cooking.


dressing or salsa, before


Cook with fresh ingredients that
add flavor without extra fat, like lemon
juice, hot and sweet peppers, onion,
garlic, tomatoes and ginger.
This cook booklet is an excellent
way to remind consumers, health pro-
fessionals and media that lean beef can
play an important role in a heart-
healthy diet," Golden said.
Readers can get a copy (while sup-
plies last) by mailing a check in the
amount of $1 made payable to
National Cattlemen's Beef
Association, along with their mailing
address to: NCBA, Dept. AHA, P.O.
Box 670, Bloomingdale, Ill. 60108.
The Beef Checkoff Program was
established as part of the 1985 Farm
Bill. The checkoff assesses $1 per head
on the sale of live domestic' and
imported cattle, in addition to a com-
parable assessment on imported beef
and beef products.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


A place of

quiet rest
Memorial Day brings to
mind those who have sacri-
ficed their lives so that we
may live in freedom. It's
also a time to pay homage
to those who are in our
Armed Forces who live
with uncertainty and the
loyalty of duty ever on
guard for that call.
Military life is disruptive
as many have been experi-
encing these last few years.
But, when you speak to
them, they see it as their job
and are glad they can make
the sacrifice.
They still miss their fami-
lies and wish these were
peaceful times. Their sacri-
fices are real and the loneli-
ness intense at times. The
hunger for being in this land
of the free and the home of
the brave is palpable.
But because they are "the
brave," they go so that we
might stay in safety.
In the midst of flying bul-
lets, explosions or strategic
planning in war zones, is
there ever a place of quiet
where a soldier can go?
Compare it to our own
lives here on the home
front. We are busy some-
times to exhaustion and the
exclusion of quiet.
Stretched to our limit, we
fall down in bed at night
almost beyond the ability to
sleep from being over-tired.
On the other hand, we
live in a place of compara-
tive safety and should have
the ability to carve out
times that are conducive to
rest. But, somehow, we neg-
lect that most basic need.
S Whether a soldier ora
civilian, a place of quiet rest
can be found even if we
aren't sitting still or when
we finally do. That place is
not necessarily a location.
It's found in a relationship
to God through Jesus
Christ.
Quiet rest is found in
being still in the sense that
we yield ourselves, our
plans, our hopes and our
dreams our very life and
destiny to God. Then he
directs us to productive and
meaningful activity accom-
panied by soul-deep rest.
"Be still, and know that I
am God." (Psalm 46:10,
NIV)
"Trust in the Lord with
all your heart, and he will
make your paths straight."
When we rest in God, it
doesn't mean we are inac-
tive, but that we have
brought our will in harmony
with his will; our hearts are
filled with his love; our
imaginations are trans-
formed by his creativity;
and, our consciences are
clear before him.
Soldiers often tell about
indescribable calmness in
desperate situations. Have
we not experienced the
same ourselves unable to
explain why?
If we examine our hearts,
we'll find that soul-deep
rest comes when we have
released ourselves into
God's hands while also
acknowledging the sustain-
ing prayers of others.
I pray our military will
draw near to God's heart as
we on the home front do
likewise keeping them
uplifted in prayer. Then
we'll meet together in a
spiritual sense in that place
of quiet rest. Selah.

SLEEP






APNE


can lead to


major health


issues if


untreated

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
leep apnea affects more than
12 million Americans,
according to the National
Institute of Health.
Males overweight and
over the age of 40, are most
commonly afflicted, but it can strike
anyone at any age, even children.
The Greek word "apnea" literally
means "without breath." There are three
types: obstrucmte, central, and mixed.
These are disti n-
guished only bN the
cause, but the result
is the same.
Untreated, sleep
apnea causes high
blood pressure and
cardiovascular dis-
ease, memory prob-
lems, weight gain,
impotency and
headaches. It also
may be responsible
for job impairment and motor vehicle
crashes.
According to the American Sleep
Apnea Association, those suffering
from sleep apnea stop breathing repeat-
edly during their sleep. sometimes hun-
dreds of times during the night and
often for a minute or longer, with sig-
nificant consequences. Obstructive
sleep apnea is the most common and is
caused by a blockage of the airw ay.
Typically the soft tissue in the rear of
the throat collapses and closes the air
passage, repeatedly forcing long pauses
in the respiratorN pattern dunng sleep.
People with thick necks are especial-
ly prone to this. Reggie White, the foot-
ball player had it. When a person lays
down, the neck is flattened and it is
more difficult to breathe.
In central sleep apnea, the airway is
not blocked, but the brain fails to signal
the muscles that control breathing. With
this type, medication helps.
Mixed apnea is a combination of
central plus blockage of the airway.
With each of these, the brain briefly
arouses people in order for them to
resume breathing,,which results in an
extremely fragmented and poor quality
of sleep. And the condition worsens
with age and weight. Fortunately, it can
be diagnosed and treated.

Hospital's Heartland Medical Center's

rapher.

"We have three rooms with full-size
beds, a private bath, and a satellite tele-
vision -just like a motel room," Freeze
said. "The initial night is for the diag-
nosis, where they are hooked to leads to
the computer for a polysonogram."
While they sleep, the computer
records an EEG (brain patterns,) an
EKG (heart patterns), REM (rapid eye
movement,) and breathing effort and
resistance. Even their oxygen levels are
recorded. Freeze reviews the lines from
the test, scoring and noting the respira-
tory events. This report is then forward-


breathing sometimes for seconds and
'up to a minute or more. Then the per-
son gasps for breath and the bed partner
may notice and be startled. We receive
referrals from family physicians, pul-
monologists (lungs) and neurologists
(nervous system,)" Tucker said.
Sleep apnea affects all types of peo-
ple from children to the very old,
although it's usually men and people
who are overweight. Tonsils and ade-
noids can cause it. Cardiologists make
most of the referrals because this strains
the heart.


After the contacts are adhered to a patient's head, neck, chest.
finger and legs, they are plugged into a "Brain Box.' which
sends the data collected to a computer monitored by the sleep
technician. The process of wiring a patient for study takes
about 15 minutes.

ed to the doctor for review.
"Our patients are evenly split
between men and women, although
sleep apnea is more prominent with
men. We conduct these tests six nights a
week, usually from 8:30 p.m. to 6 or 7
a.m. And a minimum six-hour record-
ing is required," Freeze said.

News-Sun correspondent
You are invited to this fabulous reception where an
array of cocktails beverages and deliciously scrump-
tious assortment of hors d'oeuvres deck the buffet.
Your eyes pop at the choices, and you salivate in antic-
ipation. Please! Please! mind your manners.
Ooops did you double dip with your carrot stick or
buffalo wings? That's a no no. Double dipping spreads
germs.
For those of you who complain that the cocktail plate
is too small, and can't help but pile your tasty treats sky
high. The rule is small servings. You can go back for
seconds, thirds, even fourths if you like. Which do you
think is more appropriate the mountain-stacked plate,
or returning for extra helpings?
So there is top-shelve liquor, and with your salary,
you are unable to afford to splurge on such high-end
alcoholic beverages. Remember two drinks are the
maximum. If your are hungry, stressed or sleep
deprived, eat before consuming any alcohol. Besides
alcohol and sleep deprivation are a deadly combination.

If you know that alcoholic beverages affects your
behavior, practice moderation, especially at business

used to be cumbersome, but today, it
fits right into the nose," Tucker said.
Janelle Dennison, 39, is a news clerk
with the News-Sun, who noticed she
was running out of energy, tired all the
time, and felt a pressure on her chest.
"It was difficult to even get dressed.
After being in the hospital for a week
they discovered I only had 57 percent
of the normal amount of oxygen in my
body. I was depleted," Dennison said.
"They did the sleep study test at
Highlands Regional Medical Center,
then I spent the night hearing g the
CPAP I immediately felt more rested. I
used to toss and turn and couldn't sleep
all night. I \as falling asleep at work,

falling asleep at the %wheel. I'm feeling
so much better. It take- about a month
to get used to it. Wearing the face mask
is initially aw kward. plusbeing careful
it doesn't come off, but this is part of
my life now and for the rest of my
life," Dennison said.
Kelly McGee, 42, is a funeral assis-
tant at Morris Funeral Chapel in
Sebring who was diagnosed with sleep
apnea.
"I'm a member of the Florida Boys'
Championship Cooking Team. Jady Hill

You are invited to someone's home for a party. You
enter the bathroom and after responding to nature's
call, you've decided to snoop. You peer behind the
shower curtain. You look beneath the bathroom sink,
still curious you open the medicine cabinet ... check the
label on the medication. Wait a minute what are you
looking for, are you a detective? That behavior is an
invasion of privacy. You asked to use the bathroom, not
to go on an adventure or play detective. Control your
inquisitive impulses to snoop.
Until next time, be the best you that you can be.

ARTS & LEISURE


Libraries promote the


adventure of reading


Summer workshop


As Lemony
Snicket would say,
'Read everything,
just in case.'
Have you ever inched closer
to a car at a stoplight just so you
could read their bumper stick-
er? My most recent favorite
said, "My other vehicle is my
mind." Now that's one to mull
over.
I'm wondering if that quip
was the brainchild of a librari-
an. Thinking back on some of
the catchy phrases the
American Library Association
has used to promote libraries,
the theme of using one's mind
to go places has reoccurred in
many variations.
When the movie "E.T.: The
Extra Terrestrial" was at its
height of popularity, we were
giving out reading certificates
that proclaimed a child was "an
extraterrestrial reader." When
the Alaskan sled dog races
became big news, our posters
said, "Join the IditaREAD!"
Mike Thaler's book "The
Librarian from the Black
Lagoon," inspired the themes
"Reading is a Monster-ous
Adventure!" and "Read if You
Know What's Good for You!".
Construction work is all
around us whenever we travel
and we were ready for it with
our themes of "YIELD to a
good book," "STOP and Read,"
"Read Limit 55 books per
week" and "CAUTION readers
at work".
The Lewis and Clark
Bicentennial celebration in
2003 had us dreaming up
"Discover New Trails at the
Library" and "Every Book is a
New Frontier." Airplane enthu-

siasts were invited
along for the ride
with our theme "Take
Flight! READ." We
even invited kids to
"Track Down a Good
Book" at Camp
Read-a-Lot.
Our themes and
cute quips are
designed to encour- LIBRAR
age all ages to think
of their public library Car
as a place to begin Hes.
their own personal -
travel adventure.
Whether your interest is in
marine life, comic book heroes,
the arts, crossword puzzles,
poetry, pop culture, recipes,
crafts, world travel, wildlife,
aircraft or photography, you can
find books, videos, DVDs, and
audio books to enlighten and
entertain you, all for free.
With the cost of the average
hardback book pushing $26,
large print books commonly
costing $30, and CD books
often running between $80 and
$125 each, the library's collec-
tion, freely circulated to all res-
idents 'of our four county
Heartland Library Cooperative
area, becomes a real bargain.
Add into the mix the services
of trained librarians to help find
the answers to those elusive
questions, copy machines, and
Internet connections, and you
have a package of services that
isn't available anywhere else
(for free!).
Are there obligations with
the use of library services? Of
course there are, because the
residents in our four-county
area library cooperative want to
know that the holdings of the
libraries are being shared and
returned in good condition for

the next curious
mind to discover and
enjoy.
Our libraries have
programs for young
children, and com-
puter training for
adults, lapsits for
parents and babies,
meeting rooms and
movies such as
the Avon Park's
Saturday showing
which continues year
around. This is one


place where you can
sit and read to your heart's con-
tent, download books or e-mail
the kids.
Where else can you find the
secrets of speed cleaning, rais-
ing bees, recognizing poisonous
snakes, researching a medical
condition, improving your math
abilities or finding the right
reading for that program you
are planning? Needing a special
dish or menu, wondering about
tattooing, or the rating on a
washing machine? Your jour-
ney of discovery begins at your
library.
As Lemony Snicket, author
of the juvenile books, "A Series
of Unfortunate Events," would
say, "Read Everything Just
In Case".
We'll be closed Saturday and
Monday for Memorial Day. See
you Tuesday!

istrative secretary of the

No sooner was school out for the summer, then 220 kindergarten through fifth grade teachers gath-
ered at Sun 'N Lake Elementary School for a cooperative'learning workshop. This exercise had teams
holding hands in a circle, charged with the task of keeping a balloon in the air. In a classroom it helps
drain off excess energy, and gets students to work together.


Sebring store stocking Native American drums, jewelry


SEBRING For a limited
time, Chief Walking Bear is
showing his line of handmade
Native American drums and
beaded jewelry at Wild Artist
Jewelry, 125 N. Ridgewood,
Drive.
Chief Walking Bear is
Cherokee and Blackfoot. He
belongs to the Sacred Land
tribe in Zolfo Springs. His
home and wood working shop
are in Lake Placid.


The drums come in all sizes
from hand-held to three feet in
diameter. Each is handmade
from cedar, cherry or poplar
wood and is perfectly circular.
The drums are true Native
American creations, made only
from wood and animal skin and
with no metal parts.
Most are two sided and can
be played from both ends using
Walking Bear's handmade
wood and leather mallets. Some


of the leather surfaces show a
hand painted "Cocapelli"
design.
The largest drum on display
in the store is big enough to
double as a large coffee table.
The drum is three feet wide and
hangs suspended from natural
rope on its multifunctional
base.
A wide range of his jewelry
is also available.

Mimosa trees have their virtues


The Mimosa or
silk tree (Albizia
julibrissin) is a
cousin of two trees
we have discussed in
recent columns the
ear tree and the
woman's tongue tree.
It's also a legume,
but it does not grow
to the height of its
cousins and is more
of an open-canopy
tree. Consequently
the Mimosa is much
less likely to be a
danger to your home
or property during a
storm.


This open and airy plant is
very attractive and has tiny pink
colored flowers that are
arranged in compound clusters
about five to six inches across.
They are said to look like fluffy
silk powder puffs, hence the
name silk tree.
The flowers have a sweet
scent and in mid-summer
attract honey bees, and proba-
bly butterflies and humming
birds, although my sources did
not state this as a fact. The seed
pod of the Mimosa is usually


four to eight inches in
length and approxi-
mately, one and a
half inches wide.
The Mimosa has
has a leaf that is typi-
cal among legumes
about one foot in
length, are both alter-
nate and twice com-
pound with a feath-
ery type of appearance.
The leaves fold up
at night, thus conserv-
ing moisture and mak-
ing this plant very
drought tolerant.
Something that can be


very helpful in the sandy soils
of Highlands County. They pre-
fer full sun but will grow in par-
tial shade.
One disadvantage to the
Mimosa is its susceptibility to a
fungal disease than tends to kill
older trees from time to time. It
is also on the Florida Exotic
Plant Council's list of potential-
ly invasive plants,
In Highlands County, the
Mimosa does not appear to be a
threat as there are many more of
its cousins the ear tree and
woman's tongue tree than

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
(File No. El 0238833-002) to U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, to continue backfilling portions
of the C-38 Canal as part of environmental re-
storation of the Kissimmee River ecosystem.
This project includes construction works as-
sociated with back-filling 10,000 feet of the C-
38 canal at the lower portion of Pool B (Reach
4). This includes the filling of approximately
64 acres of the canal to create a shallow
marsh in its place, construction of project ac-
cess and canal crossings, the excavation of a
new river channel through an existing spoil
mound to establish a connection to the histor-
ic river upstream of the backfill, and the re-
moval of three existing navigable sheet pile
weirs within Reach 4 of the C-38 Canal.
The project is located in Pool B of the Low-
er Kissimmee basin along the C-38 canal,
within Class III waters, Townships 33 and 34
South, Ranges 31 and 32 East, in Highlands
and Okeechobee Counties. A portion of the
work (west of the C-38) will be performed
from the spoil area east of the Avon Park
Bombing Range. The remainder of the work
will be to the east and south of the Avon Park
Bombing Range. The main access to the site
will be from Micco Bluff Road (east side of C-
38). Secondary access will be provided
through Avon Park Bombing Range but will
not be available once the gap is finalized in the
northern part of the Avon Park Bombing
Range spoil mound.
The application is available for public in-
spection during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ex-
cept legal holidays, at the Florida Department
of EnvironmentalProtection, Southeast District
Office, 400 North Congress Avenue, Suite
200, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.
The Department will issue the permit with
attached conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action may peti-
tion for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the
Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose sub-
stantial interests are affected by the Depart-
ment's action may also request an extension
of time to file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an extension of
time. Requests for extension of time must be
filed with the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time shall toll
the running of th time period for filing a peti-
tion until the request is acted upon. If a re-
quest is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the deadline was the
result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
the outcome of the administrative process
have the right to petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Intervention will be permitted on-

rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.
In accordance with rule 62-
110.106(3)(a)(1), F.A.C., petitions for an ad-
ministrative hearing by the applicant must be
filed within 14 days of receipt of this written
notice. Petitions filed by any persons other
than the applicant, and other than those enti-
tled to written notice under section 120.60(3)
of the Florida Statutes must be filed within 14
days of publication of the notice or within 14
days of receipt of the written notice, whichev-
er occurs first. Under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes, however, any person who
has asked the Department for notice of
agency
action may file a petition within 14 days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number
of the petitioner; the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the
pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests are or will be af-
fected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petition-
er received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi-
fication of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
that the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wishes the agency to take with re-
spect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not-dispute the materi-
al facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.
Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of
the Florida Statutes, a petition for administra-
tive hearing must be dismissed by the agency
if the petition does not substantially comply
with the above requirements or is untimely
filed.
Mediation is not available in this proceed-
ing.
This intent to issue constitutes an order of
the Department. Subject to the provisions of
paragraph 120.68(7)(a) of the Florida Stat-
utes, which may require a remand for an ad-
ministrative hearing, the applicant has the
right to seek judicial review of the order under
section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the
filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of
the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with
the Clerk of the Department in the Office of
General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida,
32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice
of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing
i r, wirr ith appropriate district court of ap-_
o pl. 1 r nO rie .:f appeal must be filed within
i y. iJrcirlr,- date when the order is filed.

At about 1:05 this
afternoon more than
200 sixth-graders and
the other about 400 9
mixed seventh- and
eighth-graders, most
scrambling onto the
waiting buses for the
ride home, the final
ride home of the hur-
ricane-ridden 2004- WRI
2005 school year.
This last day of Cf
school, Lake Placid -
Middle School RIc LiL
eighth-grade students
staged the school's first-ever
food fight. In a scene out of a
Hollywood movie, even the
principal and the vice principal
got food in their hair.
The menu was very gooey,
cheesy pizza, tossed (pardon
the pun) salad, and sticky,
syrupy peach desert.
Well, the first word of this
messy malaise came to me
when my sixth period history
students arrived at class. A
spokesperson for the grinning
group said that they were jeal-
ous of the eighth-graders. "We
wanted to have a food fight, but
we couldn't get it started."
As something out of "Ferris
Bueller's Day Off," the food
fight sent a message to all the
adults on the campus: "We
would rather have fun than go
to school."
It was pretty grim afterward.
Out of patience, our first-
term principal a doctor of
education, veteran social stud-


these men and women had one
thing ih common "the love
and loyalty to this country
called the United States of
America."

On June 14, which is 16 days
from now, we will be celebrat-
ing Flag Day, when Congress
adopted a resolution proposed
by John Adams (who became
our second president) for a new
flag. "Thirteen stars, which will
be white on a blue field repre-
senting a new constellation."
George Washington said, "we
take" the stars from heaven, the
red from our mother country
(Britain) separating it by white
stripes, thus showing that we
have separated from her and
the white stripes shall go down
to prosperity representing liber-
ty.

The concept of the pause for
the Pledge of Allegiance is for
all Americans everywhere to
pause for a moment on June 14,
Flag Day, at 7 p.m. EDT to say


ies teacher, and for-
mer superintendent of
two school districts
Derrel remarked
as he left the school
just after the school
buses left, "I'm going
to smell real good
about 10 o'clock
tonight." The depar-
ER'S ture of the buses
ended what had been
MP a lock down of more
than 60 minutes fol-
ENBERG lowing the cafeteria
incident. The dean of
students had his list and com-
pared it with the principal's,
and then the names of the
offending students echoed
through the campus as each one
of the food fight instigators
were called to the dean's office
to account for their aberrant
behavior. They were taken to
the cafeteria where they were
handed mops and told to clean
the place.
And then, at 1:05, they came
screaming out of the class-
rooms, pouring out, headed for
the buses. I heard their screams
of joy, brought my hands up to
cup my mouth and yelled,
"Your joy is only exceeded by
ours!"
From somewhere in the
stampede appeared a short,
dark-haired, dark-eyed girl, my
very best and brightest student,
Brandi, who offered an embrace
and then threw her arms around
me and whispered in that eter-
nal and wonderful moment,

Lesson on our

patriotic days

Editor:
Decoration Day (Memorial
Day) was started by the Grand
Army of the Republic (GAR)
who placed flowers on the
graves of the Civil War dead.
A tribute at the first national
"Memorial Day" in 1868 by
then General James A. Garfield
(who later was our 20th presi-
dent of the United States), he
said, "They summed up and
perfected by one supreme act,
the highest virtue of men and
citizens, for love of country
they accepted death and thus
resolved all doubts and made
immortal their patriotism and
virtue."
The nation mourns the loss
of all who died since 1775
which has a tally of more than
7,000,000, a lot of these are
men and women who remain
anonymous except to their fam-
ilies who loved them. All of


viders"


the 31 words. This simple cere-
mony is recognized by
Congress as part of the
National Flag Day ceremonies
(Public Law 99-54).
As you attend one or more
celebrations by the many veter-
ans organizations this
Memorial Day and they play
Taps, think of all that have
given their lives so we can be
free, but freedom is not free.
"Day is done gone the sun
"From the lake, from the hill
"From the sky
"All is well, safely rest, God
is nigh
"Thanks and praise for our
days
neathh the sky
"As we go, this we know,
God is nigh."
Above are the words to Taps.
God Bless America.
Betty Lou Nagy
Sebring

The writer is president of
Ladies Auxiliary Veterans of
Foreign Wars, District 23.

'Americans cherish the liberty to speak out and

sometimes go into fuming convulsions when they

see it exercised by people with whom they do not

agree.'
A. BARTON HINKLE, columnist, Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch, 2003


"Thank you, Mr. L. Have a
great summer!"
"Thank you, Brandi," I said
and hugged her. As we parted, I
said, "Did you learn anything
about history?"
She smiled as she always
has, a quick nod with a definite
sincerity, and over her shoulder
said, "Yes, I did."
Then, she was off again and
got lost in the merging boarding
traffic as the drivers turned on
their buses, and the faint smell
of diesel exhaust came by on
the southwest breeze.
It was over.
Finally.
The August and September
hurricanes seemed to make this
school year last a very long
time; last year seems a long,
long time ago.
If you are a teacher, you
might spend more wakened
hours with their children than
do many parents.
Aside from the more than
two dozen federal and state
non-academic programs, most
of them unfunded mandates
schools must try to accomplish,
teachers are also expected to
teach the principles of proper
social conduct, which helps to
ensure that our civilization will
not turn into the kind of anarchy
today's food fight demonstrat-
ed.

with joy the screams of freedom
we heard as the stampeding
herd headed home for the sum--
mer.
Because the public school
system is open to anyone, the
variety of individuals in our
classrooms is a microcosm of
our local society, a variety so
individual that the human
beings who are called to teach
these individuals quickly learn
that leaving no child behind
also requires stretching out
ahead of the Brandi's, who are
curious about life and eager to
learn.
Teachers are multi-faceted
and capable of multi-tasking,
on a moment's notice, and par-
ents to all these precious, indi-
vidual children.
So, what kept me facing this
hegemony every school day?
One statement that has summed
my belief since I first heard it,
years ago: The mind is a terrible
thing to waste.
I can only hope that as the
students cleaned up the cafete-
ria mess, at least one of them
might have learned that person-
al character is also a terrible
thing to waste.

My favorite

movie list

It's the beginning of the
summer movie season now..-
Yes, I have already seen "Star
Wars: Revenge of the Sith' -
4twice. '
Recently Dr: Joy Brown did -
an hour on favorite movies.
That got me to thinking -
what are my favorite movies of
all time? Here, in no particular
order, are some of the movies I
can watch again and again, and
why I think they are the best of
the best:
"It's a Wonderful Life:"
This may be my favorite of all
time. A story that teaches that
everyone's life has worth, and
even small deeds can count in a
big way. And what's not to like
about Jimmy Stewart's per-
formance?
"To Kill a Mockingbird:"
One time a movie adaptation of
a book works well. Gregory
Peck personifies Atticus Finch.
The courtroom scenes alone are
worth the price of admission.
"Star Wars: A New Hope:"
Yeah, there have been five
additional movies and the fran-
chise made George Lucas a
wealthy man, but none of the
sequels or prequels can match
the wonder and awe the first
one evoked. I feel sorry for
anyone who has just experi-
enced it on TV this one can't
be fully appreciated on any-
thing less than a big screen.
"Lord of the Rings:" All
three movies: Peter Jackson
managed to sooth the fears of
Tolkein fans and made a trilogy
worthy of the written word.
Yeah, there are things I might
have done differently, but
Jackson's vision was so spot on
that when I read the books I
will always see Legolas,
Aragorn and Frodo as they
appeared in the film.
"Titanic:" Leonardo
DiCaprio was hardly Oscar
material in this film but the
romance touched a chord. I
have always been interested in
the history of the doomed ship,
and Cameron's attention to
detail showed. Now where is
the DVD with director com-
mentary?

An assignment leads to a lesson on Brooklyn


A few short years
ago, when attending a
meeting at the Ridge
Area Writers Group,
we were asked to
write an article about
an unusual town
name.
"Unusual town
name?'" I thought.
"Why not direct my
energies toward the
subject of my birth-
place: Brooklyn,
N.Y. ?"
I would dare to


think that the name of Brooklyn
would be as unusual as any.
After I left the meeting, I
walked directly to the main por-
tion of the library and began the
hunt for whatever information I
would need. Going from one
aisle to the next, I picked up a
small handful of books that
seemed to hold the materials I
would need to bring my story
"to life," so to speak. I brought
the books home with me, but it
wasn't until a few days later
that I started reading the ones
that I hoped would capture my
interest.
It had taken me a while to go
through most of them before
realizing that they weren't
doing for me what I had expect-
ed. I had just sat the third book
down in front of me and was
beginning to get slightly dis-
gusted when I peered at the last
one on the desk before me. "Oh,
what the heck," I thought, "I'll
check this one out and then take
them all back to the library."
I opened the front cover and
there it was! The information I.
needed!
With that book before me, I
sat in front of my computer and
began making notes from the


texts, the whys,
wherefores and loca-
tions of the unusual
town name where I
was born. I also took
the time to make
copies of the maps
shown.
Most of what I
learned that day
came from the works
of Walt Whitman
who wrote what
Brooklyn, N.Y., was
all about. I empha-
size the word


"learned" because I consider
Walt Whitman to be not only an
author but a teacher as well.
He certainly would have to
be if he can grab the attention of
people like me who have "done
it all and seen it all" and at my
age, learn something I didn't
know about my birthplace.
Brooklyn. The word itself
has no definite meaning except
to alert the listener or reader of
the rough and tough area where
most people who reside there
speak a dialect all their own and
"moider" the English language,
so to speak. This has been so for
a very long time and I believe
their speech to have an inept
beauty of its own and
unmatched anywhere in this
country.
For example, I am sure you
have heard the expression "I'm
from toidy-toid street an' toid
Aven. The foider down you go,
the tougher it gets, an' I'm from
all the way down!" Enough said
for its language.
I discovered more about
Brooklyn in those two short
weeks than was ever taught in
school. I learned that Peter
MiDuit, the then governor of
New Netherlands, later to

become known as New York,
bought the whole of Manhattan
Island from the Aborigines
(Indians) for the price of 60
Guilders or $24. This 1 knew.
He later bought a small tract of
land comprising of Bedford,
Flatbush and Jamaica for the
price of 100 Guilders, half a ton
(A large cask or fermenting vat)
of strong beer, three long-bar-
reled guns with powder and
lead proportionately and four
costs. That happened about
1625.
Breukelen was the name
given by the Dutch and was
spelled as such. The word
Brooklyn as we know it came
by way of phonetics. The
spelling was easier, I guess.
Another bit of history not
taught us in school was the
famous battle of New York,
which was fought at Flatbush?
Yes I said Flatbush ... during the
Revolutionary War.
Guess what? We lost that
one!
Our good father George
Washington retreated from the
battle and left the victory to
General Howe.
Most people believe that the
south had a corner on slavery in
this country. Think again!
During the Revolutionary era,
we had black slaves in
Breukelen, believe it or not and
most Brooklyn was pro-slavery.
Another interesting piece of
history I came upon is known as
the Atrocities of New York.
This was done by the British,
right there at the water's edge of
Brooklyn in the vicinity of
Sands Street (named for the
sandy beaches there at the
time).
There were at least four ships
anchored there with American


prisoners aboard. Those prison-
ers were military and civilians
combined. That was in 1776-
79.
They died of disease, pesti-
lence, mistreatment and starva-
tion. Hlow many died? Only
12,000!
1 lie bodies were thrown on
the beach with just a sliver of
sand to cover them. This hap-
pened at Wallabout. The site
where my imom1 used to take me
along to do her shopping at the
market ... long since built there.
Years later, because there
were so many bones showing
up on the beach and children
were known to be playing with
skulls found there, the city of
New York dug up all the bones
and reburied them on a site not
to6 far from where they died.
Yes, I learned a lot about
Brooklyn in those few weeks as
1 browsed through books, news-
papers and texts.
I learned something else too!
It was about the site where all
the skeletal bones were
reburied. The land was filled
over the graves where atop of
them exists today, the Brooklyn
Navy Yard ... just six to eight
blocks from where I was born
and raised.

Center is a good

place to live

Editor:
On April 13, an incident
occurred at the Highlands
Village Assisted Living Facility
between two of our residents.
The Sebring Police Department
was called in as a pre-caution-
ary measure. Once the city
police arrived, both residents
should have been taken to the
hospital for evaluation.
Unfortunately, one of the
two residents was arrested and
charged resulting in causing
more problems, especially for
the one resident. That resident
suffers from the disease called
dementia and has difficulty in
making the correct decisions
some of the time.
Highlands Village is an
assisted living facility, it is not
a nursing home. Most of our
residents can do things for
themselves but some have great
difficulty with decisions. Our
caretakers are individuals who
monitor the residents closely
and help them when help is
needed.
Your paper printed an article
giving details to an incident
without having all of the neces-
sary facts. Your article's incom-
plete story made Highlands
Village out to be a dangerous
facility to place a loved'one.

We hope to inform the public
with your help that our facility
is a sale place for loved ones to
be placed. We hope to clear up
any misunderstanding about
Highlands Village; the facility
is a safe location with caring
employees.
At this time we have been
working with Lt. Crum of the
Sebring Police Department and
Florida's Assistant State
Attorney Steve Houchin. We
have worked together to bring
Mr. Lastinger home. We are
also working on a plan to
attempt to prevent this type of
thing from occurring again.
This means working with the
Continuum of Care (CoC), the
Highlands Emergency Recov-
ery Operation (H.E.R.O.) pro-
grams and any other groups
whose primary function is pre-
vention,be it health care, hous-
ing or assisted living.
We are engaged in seeking
out all preventive options that
become available in our com-
munity to help us here at
Highlands Village to do the
best job we can.

Heartland National lends support


By DESIREE WINDHAM
Special to the News-Sun
Heartland National Bank is
sponsoring a Habitat home for
the Evans family. The building
site at 816 Memorial Drive is
moving along rapidly thanks to
the diligence and dedication of
various volunteers.
Heartland National Bank has
not only raised the necessary
funds to build the Evans Habitat
for Humanity home, but has lit-
erally raised their hands as well
in order to aid in the build
process. By encouraging their
employees to participate,
Heartland National has provided
an enjoyable work atmosphere in
which their employees benefit
from the rewards of serving oth-
ers.
"I think it's great the bank
allows us to help. I'd like to do
this every week," said customer
service representative Jamee
Cook. Cook is 20 years old and
has volunteered her time with
various non-profit organizations
throughout the community,
Habitat for Humanity and Relay
for Life to name a few.
Cook enjoys helping others,
"It gives you a sense of pride
knowing you're helping other
people who need it. You never
know what could happen in your
own life. One day this could be
me and I hope that others would
want to help."
Working alongside Heartland
National employees was Habitat
for Humanity prospective home-
owner Annette Cooper and her
17-year-old daughter Olga.
Cooper is half way through her
400 sweat equity hours that are
required prior to the building of
a Habitat home. She began her
hours this past October and
plans to complete them as soon
as possible. She hopes to be fin-
ished with her hours by July.
"Dedication is one of the many
aspects that enable Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity to
succeed. Habitat's success is
made known on the smile of a

child's face and the joy of a fami-
ly who will grow and prosper in a
home built with love," she said.
Highlands County is fortunate
in the sense that local businesses
and volunteers offer their sup-
port to improve lives and condi-
tions throughout their communi-
ty.
Heartland National Bank and
their employees are a few of
those who put their words into


action.
"I really appreciate how this is
a Christian organization, that
makes it a really positive atmos-
phere," said Cook.

Being a girl isn't the only thing that makes Heather Barnes stand out

from the crowd in the Highlands County Dixie Boys Baseball league


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK
I t's not simply doing what
she does that makes her
noteworthy. It's that she
does it exceedingly well.
Heather Barnes is not the
only girl playing in the
Highlands County Dixie Boys
league. But she is the only one
to hit a grand slam, the only
'.one to have turned an inten-
tional walk into a game-% in--
ning hit, and the on) one 'to
lead the county in high school
varsity softball batting at one
point this season.
"It doesn't surprise me a bit
when I read that," Avon Park
head softball coach Mike Cobb
said.
"She's played enough base-
ball in her life. She takes a
good rip at the ball, every
time."
The 14-year-old is no
stranger to success among


boys, having made the all-star
team in the 11-and-12-year-old
division. This year, though,
she's taken it up a notch. She
exceeded even her own expec-
tations in her first season of
high school softball, hitting
.352 and leading the team in
doubles, triples and RBIs.
"She led our team (in bat-
ting) for several games," Cobb
said of his starting shortstop.
"She-was a heaNy himer most.
of the year."
"I was really surprised.
Whenever he told me I had the
highest batting average in
Highlands County, I was like
'Oh my gosh, I'm only a fresh-
man,'" she said.
But the surprises didn't end
there. She hadn't planned on
playing youth baseball this
summer until her dad, Ronnie,.
needed a catcher for the Dixie
Boys team he would be coach-
ing.


"I knew she could do it. I'm
trying to hide it from her soft-
ball coaches, because they
don't like her playing baseball,
but I kind of just had to have
her," Rornie said.
Yet even he wasn't expect-
ing what happened May 12,
when their Big T Tireman team
was tied 2-2 with Western Auto
in the bottom of the seventh
.and final inning. Having dou-
:bled and scored a run in the
t sixth, Heather drew the first
two balls of what would have
been the-first intentional walk
of her life.
Then, when the third pitch
wandered close enough to the
strike zone, Heather followed
her instinct, and Ronnie's
instruction, swinging and
knocking the ball into right
field to score her twin brother,
Heath, with the game-winner.
But she wasn't done. Four
days later, against Publix, she


blasted a 3-2 pitch over the
left-center field fence for a
grand slam, just the second
baseball home run of her life.
"When she hit that home
run, everybody was talking,"
Heath said.
Indeed, Heather has drawn
plenty of attention in the last
few weeks, and she hasn't
shied from the spotlight.
"It's really cool. I like get-
ting all the attention," shesaid.
"I'm kind of an attenuon hog. I
just hope you don't get tired of
hearing about me all the time."
The hoopla surrounding her
exploits has. added fuel to the
fire of her sibling rivalry with
Heath, but though he admits it
bothers him "a little bit" that
she's been the one in the spot-
light, the two remain as close
as ever.
"I feel bad sometimes
because they do pick on him a

don't know what it is about
the underdog, the little guy,
the kid who never seems to
be given a chance that
makes the hair stand up
and salute on my neck, but
whatever it is, I love it.
And there is a wee little
man I've seen lately who
has reminded me why I
love the little guy, and why
sports keeps me coming
back.
I have seen Gregory
Gentry around my neigh-
borhood in Avon Park for
several years now. When
he moved in I noticed he
played with kids a lot older
than him, or so I thought,
until I found out he just
looked younger than them.
Greg was one of those
kids who seemed to always
be playing something and,
at 4-foot-6, he looked way
outmatched in everything
he did.
Covering baseball this
summer, I have been able
to watch him playing for
the Cardinals a few times.
As a sports writer, I know I
am not supposed to have
favorites, but I must admit
it can be hard not to with
kids like Gentry.
He is just one of those
players who seems to be
more heart than body, and
makes you wish there were
some magic beans you
could give him so he
would grow big and tall,
because it would be amaz-
ing to see that kind of drive
in someone twice his size.
But then again, I think
being big would take away
the magic of watching him.
Greg reminds me a lot of
another guy I loved to
watch play a few years
ago, Kirk Taylor. Now, I
never got to watch him
play football, which I have
heard was equally impres-
sive, but I did get to watch
a good number of his bas-
ketball games for the Red
Devils, and one in particu-
lar stands out.
I believe Avon Park was
two games away from get-
ting to the Final Four of
the state tournament.
Taylor was a senior and
Avon Park was playing at
home. The team they were
matched up against had a
center who was at the very
least 6-foot-6 and built like
a Clydesdale. With his
short blonde hair and
square face, he looked like
Drago from "Rocky IV."
Taylor, on the other hand,
stood a mighty 5-4, spent
most of the game with a big

And then I talk a lot of junk to them ... I talk junk all the time.'






















June qualifying events
set for Buick Scramble
SEBRING Last year's
Buick Scramble qualifying at
Highlands Ridge North was the
biggest in the state. This year,
Tom McClurg is hoping to set a
new record.
Teaming with John Phillips at
Harder Hall, McClurg, the head
pro across the street at Sebring
Muncipal Golf Course, is look-
ing to send as many as six local
teams to the sectional qualify-
ing. To do that, both Municipal
and Harder Hall will host local
qualifiers on Saturday, June 11.
Every seven teams in the
local event means another spot
in the sectional tournament, so a
full field at both courses would
mean a half-dozen local teams
advancing.
Cost is $65 per player for the
tournament, and each golfer will
get a shirt, one dozen golf balls
and a lunch provided by sponsor
Alan Jay Buick. The rewards
get even better for teams that
qualify for the sectional and
national events.
Each player on the team must
have a certified handicap. For
more information, contact
Sebring Muncipal at 385-0889
or Harder Hall at 382-0500.

lot," Heather said of people
who taunt her brother because
of her success. "But he seems
like he likes playing with me,
because ... if I get mad, he'll be
there to try to get me un-mad,
and if he gets mad I'll talk to
him, and we just always support
each other."
Heather herself said she has-
n't received nearly as much
flack from the boys she plays
with as she gets from the girls.
She is, however, quick with a
comeback for anyone who tries
to needle her.
"I just tell them I do it because
I need competition," she said of
playing boys baseball.
Heather said she actually
enjoys the back-and-forth with
boys.
"It's fun playing baseball,
because it is fun when I beat
them," she said. "And then I
talk a lot of junk to them. I go to
school with a lot of them. I talk
junk all the time."
Heather, though, has been
talked out of playing baseball
beyond this year.
"I asked my dad if I could
play JV (baseball) this year, and
then one of the teachers at the
school said something about
softball for girls," she said.
"They didn't tell me I wasn't
allowed to. It's just she made a
comment that baseball was
boys and softball was for girls,
and that's why they made (soft-
ball).
"So I was just like, I'm not
even going to worry about it ...
I knew I'd be starting on varsi-
ty, so I was like, I'll just stick
with softball."
Heather has a promising
future in the sport, having
already been contacted by
coaches from South Florida
Community College and
Florida Southern University.
This summer, she'll be going to
a pair of college showcases, and
will be playing in Alabama,
South Carolina and Tallahassee
with the Tampa Wildcats travel-
ing team.
"Division I would not be out
of the question," Cobb said of
her college prospects. "(It's) not
- just her hitting. She's got an

arm that just, for a girl, is unre-
al, and she's got a good glove."
"I want to go to college and
play softball," Heather said. "I
just don't know what college I
want to go to."
"I just want to see her get an
education out of it," Ronnie
said. "That's the biggest thing,
an education. It really doesn't
matter where she goes to me.
As long as she gets an educa-
tion out of it, goes to a good
school, that's the main goal.
That's what all this is for, edu-
cation."
For tips on the finer points of
softball and baseball, however,
she need only look across the
dinner table.
The day Heather hit her
grand slam was the 25th
anniversary of Ronnie's two-
run triple in Avon Park's state
championship game victory
over Jacksonville Bolles.
Heather's grandfather, Jim
Prevatt, was on Avon Park's
unbeaten 1955 state champi-
onship team and played profes-
sionally for about three years in
the Chicago Cubs system.
It's not just bats and gloves.


Heather's older sister, Dana, is
captain of the APHS cheerlead-
ers, following in the footsteps
of mother, Kelly, who was an
Avon Park cheerleader in the
1980s:
Heather herself lettered in
cross country and swimming in
addition to softball this year.
"Both sides of her family are
athletic," Ronnie said.. "Both
sides played ball football,
baseball, everything all
through the years, and it just
rolls downhill."
The weight of being a student
athlete weighs on Heather, who.,
said the hardest part of her life
is barely having the time to con-
duct it.
"I don't really have a lot of
teenage time, I guess you'd call
it," she said. "I don't get to
hang out as much because in the
summer I'm. always playing
ball, I'm always practicing."
Yet if she keeps it up, she
could well be destined for the
rewards of greatness.
"If she stays at it like she's
doing, and stays on the pace
that she's doing, she will go
very far," Cobb said.

Taylor was a very good
streak shooter who loved
launching the 3-pointer, and
you would think that someone
his size would have been con-
.tent with that. But no, Taylor
seemed to love to rebound.
In this game I remember dis-
tinctly sitting on the stage under
the basket and watching (sever-
al times) Drago go up to bring
down a rebound, only to have
little Kirk come up from under
him, ram his hand up Drago's
chest and rip the ball away and
run out the 3-point line to
launch another bomb before
anyone knew what had hap-
pened.
It was fantastic.
Little guys make me glad to
watch sports. It's guys like
Greg and Kirk who make me
want to come out and ignore the

what makes sports great: the
chance for the underdog to
shine, the chance for the little
guy to show that he is only little

to see that size doesn't have to

Thanks, all you little guys
out there playing. You keep me

PERRY
Continued from 1E
"He does a lot of things well
on the floor and gets his team
ready to play. They were
(ready) this year, all year
long."
Here is the rest of the 2005
News-Sun All-Highlands
County Boys Basketball Team:
Patrick Menzies
Avon Park
Menzies, a 6-6 junior, led
the county in rebounding with
11 per game and in blocked
shots with 3.5 per game,
adding 10.5 points and 1.5
steals per contest.
"His jumping ability and his
timing on blocking shots is a
big asset for us," Zwayer said.
"He's able to be a presence
defensively inside, which keys.
us offensively and defensively.
He's really important for us
overall."
Devaris Strange
Avon Park
The county's leading scorer
at 14.5 points per game,
Strange, a 5-10 junior, could
score from just about any-
where for the Devils and also
had four rebounds, two steals
and three assists per game.
"He's a really good athlete
and he can shoot the ball from
anywhere on the floor,"
Zwayer said. "He's able to.
slash really well and he actual-
ly defends well. He makes an
effort at guarding, which is a
big plus for us."
Jovanni Shuler
Lake Placid
The versatile Shuler, a 6-4
junior, was the Dragons' most
valuable player this season
after turning in 10 points, four
rebounds, 2.16 assists and 2.64
steals per game.
"He did a lot of things for
us," Lake Placid coach Steve
Young said. "He did a great
job handling the ball, which is
what we needed a lot. He had a
number of assists and rebound-


ed well all year."
Jan Valk
Lake Placid
Yet another junior, Valk
gave the Dragons a solid pres--
ence under the basket with a
team-high 12 points per game,?
but it was his rebounding that
really made the difference as
Valk used his 6-5 frame to pull
down 7.9 boards per game,
getting 87 offensive rebounds.
"He was Mr. Inside," Young
said. "Down low, we had a
couple of kids down there, but
he was the best. He got banged
on a lot and we expected a lot.
out of him and he gave us a
lot, as far as rebounding. He -
got a lot of stick-backs."
Weston Brooks
Sebring
Brooks got a lot of attention
for his offensive abilities -
particularly his dunks but it
was his defensive play that
drew the praise of his coach.
"He was a heck of a defen-
sive plaN er.' Harris said.
"Anybody wanted to stop
defensively, that's who he
guarded."
The 6-2 senior averaged
8.92 points and 3.15 rebounds
for the Streaks.
Kevin Dixon
Sebring
Another big man under the
basket this season, Dixon put
his 6-5, 275-pound body to
work for the Streaks to the
tune of a team-high 9.96 points
and 5.28 rebounds per game,
shooting 63 percent from the
floor in the process.
"A big presence under the
basket," Harris said. "Hard to
get around and hard to stop
when he's going up. (At) 275
pounds, he was bigger than
most everybody we pla. ed."

NBA Playoffs

Shaq not the only Heat player battling health woes


By TIM REYNOLDS
4ssociatda PrI-s
MIAMII Shaquille
O'Neal isn't the only Miami
Heat player with health con-
cerns these dass.
While O'Neal's bruised
right thigh has been a source of
daily concern for several
weeks, he's just one of mans
Heat plaNers spending as much
- or perhaps more time in
the training room than on the
practice floor.
Three starters O'Neal.
Damon Jones and Udonis
Haslem -- and reserve for-
ward Christian Laettner all
were unable to practice on
Friday.
Miami coach Stan Van
Gundy said he expects every-
one on the playoff roster to be
available today, when the Heat
visit Detroit for Game 3 of the
Eastern Conference finals.
"We've been all season with
guys out of practice and in and
out of the lineup," Heat guard
Dwyane Wade said. "We want
guys to get healthy, so we
don't worry about it."
O'Neal's thigh limits his
mobility, although he's aver-
aged 33 minutes, 18.5 points
and 7.5 rebounds in the series
with Detroit. Jones has an
injured heel that won't get sig-
nificantly better until the off-
season. Haslem has a dislocat-
ed finger on his left hand and
Laettner has battled foot prob-


lems for much of the season.
And e'en though they're
banged up, the injured Heat
players have come through
wilh some solid numbers so far
in these playoffs.
Jones had a big bounceback
effort in Game 2 against


Detroit. shooting 5-for-7 from
the field, 2-for-3 from 3-point
range and finishing with 14
points, seven rebounds. four
assists and one turnover in 32
minutes.
Haslem had seven rebounds
in 25 minutes and Laettner -


who drew Van Gundy's wrath
after struggling in Game 1
against Detroit got plenty of
praise after scoring four
points, grabbing three
rebounds and playing some
solid defense in 12 minutes of
Game 2.
