Veteran Highlands County school administrators Joyce McClelland (left) and Pat Landress will swap jobs in July.

District plans administrative changes


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Two veteran school
administrators trade positions the first
of July.
Joyce McClelland, coordinator of
elementary education and federal pro-
grams, takes the reins at Park
Elementariiy School, and Pat Landress,
Park's principal, assumes
McClelland's duties at the district
office.
McClelland brings 34 years of expe-
rience to her assignment. A graduate of
Hardee High School and South Florida
Community College, she has bachelor
and master degrees from the
University of South Florida.
She began teaching kindergarten at
Hopewell Elementary, became a
resource teacher there, then an assis-
tant principal. She also was principal
of Sun 'N Lake and later, Woodlawn
elementary schools, before moving to
the district office a year and a half ago.
NMcClelland is energized and excited
about her new challenge working
with flesh-and-blood children instead


Residents:


Ridgedale


Apartments


need repair
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Residents at the
Ridgedale Apartments are up in arms about
hurricane damage to their homes. It hasn't
been fixed and as far as they have been able
to tell, it won't be anytime soon.
However, calls to the South Carolina Firm
that manages the apartment complex indi-
cate that it might be a simple lack of com-
munication that has caused a lot of the frus-
tration.
"What it is, is the adjusters have been so
far behind. We just received the breakdown
on the losses on May 23. We are reviewing
that with a contractor and if everything jibes
we're ready to start repairs," said Dean
Walden, vice president of SHL Group, man-
agement agency for the Fairview Terrace
complex. "We're literally just weeks away
from getting started."
See RIDGEDALE, page 11A


of statistics, and transforming abstract
policies into concrete programs.
"I'm thrilled to be getting back to
the students and the school environ-
ment," McClelland said. "Getting back
to the front line, renewing old friend-
ships and getting to make new- ones,
with parents as well as teachers, and of
course, with students."
Landress, who has taught more than
25 years in Highlands County, has a
sophisticated understanding of federal
programs, having worked for years in
schools which qualified for many. She
is dedicated to the opposite challenge
- remembering the flesh and blood
children while working with statistics,
to help create abstract policy shaped by
real conditions.
This is not Landress' first time
working at the district level. Years ago
she wore three hats in one position, as
coordinator of bilingual education,
assistant principal and coordinator of a
special needs students' summer pro-
gram, and staffing specialist.
Landress also served as principal at
Hopewell Elementary (at the same


time McClelland was assistant princi-
pal) and later at Fred Wild Elementary.
"It's ironic," Landress said, "Twenty
five years ago I worked at the district-
office. Now I'm coming back to the
very same office and secretary. The
very same after 25 years." She paused
and added, "I will miss the children,
but I hate to find \ a s to help schools
like mine." '
As coordinator of elementary educa-
tion, Landress will help principals
develop a coordinated curriculum. In
addition, she will oversee federal pro-
grams like No Child Left Behind.
In another administrative change,
Foylen Bryant, coordinator of food
service, retired at the end of the school
year. John Dickl, who arrives here
from Seminole County, takes over as
food service coordinator June 6.
The only other administration
change comes as a result of population
growth. Sebring High School adds a
new assistant principal, for a total of
three.

Tentative agreement

reached Thursday

SEBRING The Highlands County
Educational Association and The School
Board of Highlands County reached a
tentative agreement Thursday on a con-
tract that included a salary and health
benefit package amounting to a 7.3 per-
cent increase.
"It went very well," John Rousch,
president of the
HCEA, said. -

the members of WALLY COX,

teams.
Cox wasn't surprised at the coopera-
tion. "It's been a tough year," he said,
"due to the stops and starts caused by the
hurricanes last year. We had staff and stu-
dents affected; some still aren't in their
homes. We had to adjust the schedule,
and teachers and students had to sacrifice.
"But in spite of it all, we still did well.
We even rose to the occasion, with vol-
unteers cutting down trees, or serving
food to the public, and doing many other
things.
"The hurricanes showed us our charac-
ter, so that is something to be proud of.
Some neat things occurred. And it's still
going on, like with these negotiations."

Avon Park Chamber celebrates year


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Some of
the warmest applause at the
Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce annual banquet
Thursday night, was reserved
for The Depot restaurant which
catered the event.
Back in business having sur-
vived hurricane damage and a
fire, The Depot symbolized the
year that just passed, and the
way people have triumphed
over physical adversity.
Thursday night, members
celebrated by wearing bright
tropical shirts, and tapping their
toes in time to the Beach Boys.
Outgoing president Jerry
Whidden listed the chamber's
successes the Christmas
parade, Christmas on Main
Street, the new street signs, the
Park & Shop in Avon Park cam-
paign, and the brand new wel-
come signs installed on U.S. 27.
Because of the hurricanes,
when it came to bestowing
awards, some people were
remembered for their work dur-
ing the height of the storms.
Chamber members rose for a
standing ovation as the
Community Service Award was
given to the Avon Park police
and fire departments, partly to
honor their combined response
to fires fought in the teeth of
two hurricanes.
Simmons Kitchen & Bath
was named Business of the
Year. David and Nancy
Simmons opened their custom
design business in 1985 in a
strip mall. They were the only
employees. Nineteen years
later, they employ 24, and the
business 'has a new home at
1503 N. Lake Drive with
12,000 square feet of space.
Bill Jarrett presented the
Citizen of the Year award to
Douglas Gentry.
Gentry was hailed for his
wholehearted commitment to
projects, even when he is
doubtful of their chance of suc-


Maureen and Clifton Pryce, with Bank of America, got into the
mood of the evening, kicking back and relaxing. Maureen is one of
the chamber's new directors.


cess. Jarrett said Gentry is often
doubtful so often in fact, that
when he disagrees with a plan,
his friends are pretty sure it will
work out just fine.
It's when Gentry thinks
something is a good idea,
Jarrett said, that his friends
worry it will fail.
"I vote no," Gentry said, as
he Accepted the award, then
quickly added, "Wow, this is all
right. Have a good night."
Five Junior Achievement
volunteers were honored for
their work this past year. They
were, Michelle Myers, Susie
Bishop, Joyce Adams, Tina
Gottus, Gabe Read and Dr.
Michael McLeod of South
Florida Community College.
These volunteers each taught a
class once a week, for 10
weeks, showing students how
to prepare resumes, handle
interviews, and otherwise pre-
pare for a professional career.
McLeod also has been
named Junior Achievement
Volunteer of the Year for
Highlands County.
George Hall, the chamber's
new president introduced the
new directors for 2005-2006.

The DepOt restaurandtreopens;


other tenants moving in next


By BARRY FOSTER:
News-Sun
AVON PARK With the
recent reopening of The Depot
restaurant comes word that the
owners of the property are plan-
ning future expansion on the
block.
John Devany and John Hill
have been working feverishly
to restore the adjoining store-
fronts for tenants.
Most people remember those
spaces as having been occupied
by Jimmy's Flowers and
McCarthy's Photography
Studio. However, when they re-
open there will be some new
occupants in the Cohen
Building and the spaces will be
reconfigured as well..
"Actually, we'll have three
storefronts in there and two of
them already have been rent-
ed," Hill said.
He said there also have been
some inquiries about the third
space.
The pair were able to create
the additional storefront by
splitting the Jimmy's Flowers
side in half. That provides a pair
of 1,500 square foot office


spaces.
"The side that's open has
1,500 square feet of floor space
with a 1,100-square-foot stor-
age loft," Hill said.
The other side eventually
will become home to the beauty
salon known as Today's
Images, The salon currently is
located on U.S. 27 South.
It was in the Jimmy's
Flowers side where a March
fire occurred. Hill said the blaze
was sparked by dehumidifiers
that overloaded the electrical
system as they worked to dry
out the hurricane-damaged
building.
'Going in on the other side, in
Betty McCarthy's former photo
studio will be the Avon Park
location of Horace Williams
Office Supply.
Justin Williams was excited
about the move. He said the
1,100 square foot floorplan
would provide a lot of addition-
al room' over the building they
currently occupy.
"If you go into our store now
it's pretty packed. This is going
to be twice as much room as we
have now," he said.


Even as the new occupants
plan their moves, Hill predicted
he and his partner still have
about two months worth of ren-
ovation to complete before the
building is ready.
Hill said still to go in are
trusses, drywall, acoustic ceil-
ing, flooring, new electrical and
plumbing plus the renovation of
the bathrooms to meet federal
Americans with Disabilities Act
requirements.
"We had to gut it all out after
the hurricanes and then the
fire," he said.
It began with the winds from
Hurricane Charley which loos-
ened the roof. It wound up with
Hurricane Jeanne which took
the roof.
In the interim, the Avon Park
entrepreneurs got a new roof
put on and it has withstood the
rigors of even the recent rain-
storms.
A mold company also has
come in and. abated that prob-
lem.
"They've been spraying and
cleaning. I'll tell you, it's look-
ing good and smelling better,"
he said.

Stabbing incident sends two to hospital


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A fight at the
Why Not Lounge early Friday
morning resulted in a trip to jail
for one man and a visit to the
hospital for two other people.
Arrested and charged with
aggravated battery and resisting
arrest was John Keith
Raulerson.
Witnesses said Raulerson got
into a fight at the bar with 31-
year-old Charles McSorley of
Avon Park.
According to a Sebring
police report, Raulerson had
been involved in one alterca-
tion, left the lounge on U.S. 27
South, then later returned.
McSorley reportedly told
Raulerson's girlfriend that she
should get the 22-year-old
Sebring man out of the lounge.
That advice reportedly was the
genesis of the fight.
McSorley suffered knife
wounds to his head, neck and
stomach several of which
required stitches. He was taken
to the emergency room at
Highlands Regional Medical
Center where he was treated for
his injuries and then released.

was Raulerson's girlfriend,
Maria Gonzales. She told offi-
cers she apparently had suffered
the injury to her arm trying to
break up the donnybrook
between her boyfriend and
McSorley.
She also was taken to HRMC
where she was treated and
released.
Officers later located
Raulerson at his home on State
Road 17. According to the affi-
davit, he battled with the patrol-
men who were attempting to
arrest him and bring him in.
As part of that fray, officers
had to use pepper spray on


Raulerson, who hit the cruiser's
back window with his head and
feet.
Investigators later found
bloody clothing at Raulerson's
apartment and recovered a
knife.
Raulerson was being held in
the Highlands County Jaitl-with-
out bond.

At approximately 7:14 p.m.
Wednesday, May 25, Sebring
police stopped a 1991 maroon
Mercury at the intersection of
Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard and E.O. Douglas
Avenue in Sebring.
The officer had the driver
- 32-year-old Stephanie Kay
Jones, also known as
Stephanie Wooden, of
Sebring walk back to his
car to receive the citation. As
she was walking back to the
car, he asked if she had any-
thing in the car he should
know about. According to
arrest reports, she said no.
When he asked for permis-
sion to search the car, she
said yes, reports said.
The officer had the first
seat passenger step out, asked
for consent, searched the
front seat passenger and
found nothing. He then
excused the passenger.
In the car, the officer found
a black CD holder between
the two front seats. When he
opened it, a circular piece of
crack cocaine fell from inside
it.
She was charged with pos-
session of cocaine. No bond
was set.


VENUS A 43-year-old
man is in jail without bond after
allegedly brandishing a shotgun
at Highlands County sheriff's
deputies and holding a toddler
by the neck in front of him, as a
human shield.
At 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May
26, deputies arrived at the
Venus home of Jerry Hugh
Peoples to investigate child
neglect and abuse complaints,
substance abuse complaints
against the parents and to serve
two active felony warrants and
one misdemeanor warrant on
Peoples.
The children were two 17-
month-old babies, according to
complaint affidavits.
When deputies and officers
with the Department of
Children & Families walked up
to the door, they saw a child
through the plate glass door in a
crib, crying. They knocked and
heard Peoples say "wait a
minute." Deputies stationed


behind the house saw him try-
ing to leave by a rear window,
but he pulled back into the
house when he saw them.
.At that time,
officers came

He then retreated into the
rear bedroom and armed him-
self with a Winchester 12-
gauge shotgun, loaded with five
live shells, one in the chamber.
Over the course of the next 45
minutes, reports said, he
allegedly threatened deputies
while one of them, a certified
hostage negotiator, tried to per-
suade him to put down the gun
and the child.
At 4:20 p.m., Peoples said he

Red Cross says: Inventory valuables


SEBRING Natural disas-
ters can strike anywhere a fact
that particularly draws attention
as Floridians prepare to face
another hurricane season.
Protecting your property
becomes a priority. Toward that
end, it's important to conduct a
household inventory some-
thing you will need should you
have to file insurance claims in
the future.
The Red Cross offers this
advice:
Store important docu-
ments in a safe place. These can
include financial records, birth
certificates, marriage licenses,
wills, deeds, tax returns, insur-
ance policies and stock and
bond certificates.
Make a record of your
possessions. The best record is
by photographing or videotap-
ing your belongings and the
condition of your home. You


can also make an inventory list
in a notebook. Photograph each
item. Record model and serial
numbers. Include inexpensive
items, such as bath towels and
clothes, since their cost will add
up if you have to replace them.
Note the quality of the
items.
Photograph cars, boats
and recreational vehicles.
Get professional
appraisals of jewelry, col-
lectibles, artwork or other items
that are difficult to value.
Update the appraisals every two
to three years.
Update your inventory
list each year
The Red Cross says some
computer software programs
can hep with this task..

Brantley hired as interim


head of Tourist Development


Channel 17 preparing to



move out of Highlands


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING After more
than a decade of local television
in Highlands County, it appears
at least part of what was once a
local television operation may
soon be moving north.
But it is more than a move in
location, station officials reveal
it is also a shift in focus.
General Manager Gary
Hutchens said WHRT-TV chan-
nel 17 will be moving its stu-
dios out of Sebring and looking
more toward the central Florida
region.
First, will be the relocation of
the studios.
"We have options in
Kissimmee, Lake Wales, Tampa
as well as in Lakeland," he said.
He predicted the move could
happen as soon as in the next 30
days but no later than Aug. 1.
Although the station will be
licensed to the city of Sebring,
Hutchens plans to use cutting-
edge technology to make 'the
station available around the
globe through both broadband
broadcasting and the Internet.
"We're going to be one of the
very first television stations
anywhere in the world to be


broadcasting via wireless
broadband," he said.
That will include video
streaming on the Internet.
Hutchens plans are to expand
from Avon Park, Lake Placid
and Sebring to becoming a cen-
tral Florida television station.
"Once we fire it up, up there,
we will automatically be on 10
other cable systems in and
around the Kissimmee and
Windemere areas of Orlando,"
he said. "As well as other sys-
tems such as Comcast and
Brighthouse throughout the
central Florida area plus on
the Web."
Currently, the station only
produces two local programs,
and one has been put on hold.
There's "Focus on the
Heartland" and "My Italian
Kitchen." 7 '
"Focus on the Heartland is a
half-hour news magazine.
We've canceled it temporarily
until we get the move done,
then we'll bring it back," he
said.
Hutchens said the move also
will change the station to a
more sports-oriented theme.
"Primarily we'll be hunting
and fishing," he said. "We've


teamed up with the Outdoor
Channel."
When it returns, "Focus on
the Heartland" reportedly will
be more oriented to central
Florida in general.
"Basically, this is a Tampa
television station licensed to the
city of Sebring," Hutchens said.
"We're being able to expand
unconventionally with cut-
ting-edge technology."
He said that the station had
been forced to use the broad-
band and Internet, because it
could not increase the power.
"This is a Class A low-power
station, and the government is
swamped trying to handle the
full-power stations," he said.
Hutchens noted other than
the two programs previously
mientionried, .:'the stdtiotl hadn't
had any local prog:apaming
since he took over at the begin-
ning of the year.
"Honestly, this station has
never made any money and
we're not in business to lose
money," he said. "Those shows
generated no revenue and the
whole point of building any
kind of company is to build rev-
enue."


By BARRY FOSTER

SEBRING Highlands
County has wasted no time in
filling the slot left vacant with
the departure of former
Highlands County Tourist
Development Commission
Executive Director Pat Taras.
Jim Brantley has been hired
on a part-time basis while a per-
manent replacement for Taras is
located.
It has been somewhat of a
trial by fire for the tourism
industry veteran. He has inher-
ited a series of important proj-
ects including the development
of a marketing plan, a market-
ing survey and a Web site.
"Right now I'm over-
whelmed," he said. "There's
just a lot of work to do here."
Thursday morning he attend-
ed his first Tourist
Development Commission
meeting as the executive direc-
tor. As part of that meeting the
TDC board approved to recom-
mend to the county commission
two grants.
One was a $20,000 grant to
help underwrite the second
annual Run to the Heartland,
sponsored by the Heartland
Riders Association, and the
other is a $20,000 stipend for
the Sport Aviation Expo.
Brantley is looking for a cou-
ple of other cornerstones to
make the organization run more
smoothly, a firm to do a market-
ing survey and an advertising
company to take care of ad lay-
out and the like.
"You really need to get a
good marketing study done to
create a baseline. That is so you
can determine where you're at.
Then in a year you have an idea
of how well you've been able to
do with your project," he said.
The second entity is an
advertising company.
Developing a request for pro-
posal, advertising it, then giv-
ing firms 30 days to respond
Would mean that at the earliest,
he didn't expect much to be
accomplished before the end of
July.


"Really, it might not be until
August, then they have to go
through the interview and they
have to select somebody to rec-
ommend to the commission. Ift
they're approved then there'll
be a contract drawn up, so that's
probably going to be another
60-70 days. It'll be a while," he
said.
He said that while other
facets of the TDC were impor-
tant, getting the requests for
proposal done was "critical."
In the meantime, the new
Web site for the TDC was to
have gone online beginning
June 1. However, the old Web
site with outdated information
still is what is found as of
Thursday.
Brantley planned to contact
Miles Media, the organization
hired to do the work.
"I'm going to call them, find
out who is in charge and talk
with them about it," he said.
Brantley comes from Polk
County, where he created,
designed and developed both
the Central Florida Develop-
ment Council and Polk's
Tourist Development Council.
"In terms of the tourism and
sports side of it, I don't think
you could have picked anybody
better," said Mark Jackson,
director of tourism and sports
marketing for Polk County.
"One, he knows the area and
two, when it comes to putting


together effective programs that
produce results they made a
wise choice."
Jackson said on the tourism
side, Brantley was responsible
for creating the film initiative,
advertising and collateral pro-
grams as well as public rela-
tions initiatives.
Jackson pointed to the
sports-marketing initiative as
one of the highlights of
Brantley's work in Polk
County.
"He was the architect of it
and it's one of the most honored
in the state of Florida," he said.
"He is as responsible as any-
body in putting Polk County on
the tourism map."
It all came from Brantley's
groundwork, his doing what
Jackson termed "a very thor-
ough analysis" of the county's
tourism offerings.
"He then packaged that into a
very comprehensive tourism
and sports program." Jackson
said.
He also surmised that the
interim employment could bode
well for both counties.
"It opens the door for some
cooperative ventures. There are
some opportunities there to do
some joint ventures and joint
promotions," Jackson said.
According to Highlands
County Administrator Carl
Cool, Brantley is slated to fill
the slot for 60-90 days.

She was supposed to have

her head and almost knocked
her out. You might say she was
a sweeping success.

What started out to be a routine
day turned into an eventful one
upon the unexpected meeting of
our famous local author Capt.
D.E. Brady.
So with one of his auto-
graphed books in hand I left
Walker Memorial Hospital,
where he and his charming wife
reside, realizing that through
.his book, which he calls
Drifting Twigs I was taking
home with me a priceless com-
panion, a memento of an unfor-
gettable visit.
-Later as I read his bits of wit
and wisdom gathered together
in a life time of 80 colorful


years, I knew I had a storehouse
of stimulating ideas, as well as
bits of life to either ponder
upon, or more important, to
laugh at, along with the author.
Here are some Bradyisms
picked at random: "If you want
to be miserable, think about
yourself and what people think
of you." "Tact is what it takes to
say 'Hello kid' to a girl you
knew 50 years ago." "The poi-
son gas of peace time is a
forked tongued gossip." "About
the only farm movements
which will benefit the farmers
are those that start at daybreak
and end at sundown." "All trees
have limbs but the cypress
alone has 'knees'." "Now and
then you see a man driving
carefully and you know he has
his car paid for."
This 'n that: Welcome to our
town from Sebring, E.V. Adams
and family. Mr. Adams now has
the Jacaranda Standard Station.
Good luck for Tom Moore who
has opened a new electronics
shop on Main Street. If you

Too many cars


New Concerned Citizens



becomes a corporation


# JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
West Sebring volunteer firefighters push a 2004 Ford sports utility vehicle away from the intersec-
tion of Ferrari Drive and Le Mans Drive in Sebring on Friday morning. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, the sport utility vehicle, driven by Norman Elliott of Sebring, was heading west
on Ferrari Drive. A 2003 Chevrolet, driven by Carol Hodges of Sebring, was heading south on Le

SEBRING A group of
Washington Heights residents
met at the Boys & Girls Club in
Sebring to begin the creation of
a community organization that
will result in significant
progress for their neighbor-
hood.
Organizer Robert Saffold
said as many as two dozen peo-
ple turned up at the latest meet-
ing of the New Concerned
Citizens of Washington Heights
to meet with local attorney
Andrew Jackson and establish
the group as a corporation.
The move fit with a sugges-
tion by Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency
Executive 'Director Pete
Pollard.
"My recommendation was
that they form a not for profit
community development cor-
poration or neighborhood asso-
ciation, which would then make
them eligible for some funding
from different sources," said
Pollard. "If they're incorporat-
ed, they could qualify for the
Florida's Front Porch program
for instance."
That would allow them to
access funding to help them
implement their plan., Pollard
said he has volunteered to help
the group develop a template
once they get the necessary des-
ignation in place.
Some of that activity already
is on the drawing board. Pollard
last month submitted an appli-
cation for a $750,000
Community Development
Block Grant to use in a
streetscape program.


The city would also provide
$300,000 in matching funds as
part of that program.
If successful, it would
finance work on Highlands
Avenue from Sheriff's Tower
Road to Grove Avenue, Lemon
Street from Highlands Avenue
to Eucalyptus to tie into the
parkway, streetscape North
Ridgewood from the Parkway
to Helena Street in conjunction
with the high-

tion grant
received from
the Florida
Department of
Transportation,
work on Pear
Street from SAFFOLD
Hawthorne
Drive to Lemon Street plus
design and install a'landscaping
buffer along the Sebring
Parkway from Shontee Avenue
to North Ridgewood Drive.
"The preliminary scoring
looks pretty good for us, but we
won't know for certain at least
for another month," he said.
The city council also
approved a new street-lighting
project. Scheduled to go in are a
half-dozen new poles with
lights and the retrofitting of
nearly 130 new lights ranging
from 150 to 400 watts lights.
Saffold said the next step in
the ongoing effort would be a
communitywide cleanup.
"We are going to have a
clean up activity June 6-10.
We've done this in the past sev-
eral times," he said.
Over the past weeks, the

and talked with officials rang-
ing from Pollard to Sebring
Mayor. George Hensley,
Sebring Police Chief Tom
Dettman, Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton, and
County Administrator Carl
Cool, among others.
"Each one of those people
has something to do with the
improvement of our neighbor-
hood," he said.
Saffold said the effort is to
revitalize through a partnership
with local government.
"Many of our neighbors and
residents feel like things have
been neglected over here,"
Saffold said. "They want to do
some things to improve the way
we live and the way things hap-
pen over here."
He said that other places,
such as Avon Park, Lake Wales
and Bartow, have completely
revamped communities.
"They have grants that have
come thorough. They repaved
the streets and put new curbs
and sidewalks in up in Lake
Wales. They also put a commu-
nity center in," he said. "If other
communities can do it, we can
too."
The planned cleanup is the
third phase of a five-step pro-
gram. Next, they plan to go to
the Sebring City Council and
Highlands County Commission
meetings to give them an
update on their progress.
The next meeting of the
group is planned for this com-
ing Thursday at the Boys and
Girls Club, at the intersection of
Highlands and East Center
avenues. Saffold invited all
concerned citizens to attend.

TUFFIN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


They're not

just geeks

on Steroids
I ran smack into the com-
puter revolution this week,
when Paul Giroux, of
SnobHollow Designs, taught
me how to design a Web site.
Keep' in mind I am not on
the ramparts of this revolution.
I'm one of the old fogies, sit-
ting back under the shade tree.
We play dominoes we can
touch, proud to be out of the
virtual mainstream, and we
exchange witty patter, my BPC
(before. personal computers)
friends and I, as we look down
our noses at what we don't
understand.
"If you're going to write, it
should be with a pen on
paper," I say, or, "If God had
meant us to be plugged in,
we'd have been bom with
extension cords in our belly
buttons."
Never mind that I now write
almost exclusively on a key-
board, and know how to
Google. I am still of the old
school deeply suspicious
and wary.
And willfully ignorant.
Which made my morning with
Giroux very interesting, if
overwhelming. At times it was
like listening to someone
speak in a foreign language,
where only occasional words,
like Coke or Nike, make sense.

WEB MASTER




4t advances


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING In less
than a decade the Internet
has exploded in size and
scope. With this explosion
has came a myriad of
career opportunities to
develop, exploit, and serv-
ice the new technology.
Among the most glam-
orous is the role of Web
master, a profession
whose very name lends it
an aura of mystery and ,
power.
Web masters design
Web sites, and maintain
them. To do this they have
to keep on the cutting
edge.
The cutting edge in
Internet technology has
been honed by a surpris-
ing source. The adult
entertainment industry is
largely credited with forc-
ing most innovative, tech-
nical advances. This fact
is often downplayed
because of the content of
the material the industry
publishes, but historians
of the Internet have
noticed it and Gabriel
Pulido of Terranovus.Net
in Sebring confirms it,
"without a doubt."
This leadership in technolo-
gy began years ago when the
industry pioneered the shift,
from acetate film to video and
then to DVD.
On the Internet, the industry
invested in eleconferencing
and movie Atreaming, turning
abstract concepts into real
working sstems. These


Web master career as a
hobby. He was there at
the start of the Internet,
and as it grew so did his
4 business. He learned by a
process of trial and error.
i While it's still possible
to be self-taught, the field
has grown so fast, and
become so much more
complicated, such a lais-
sez-faire approach is no
longer recommended.
Especially as there is a
rich variety of training or
J degree programs from
which to choose.
S The field is highly
competitive, but poten-
tially lucrative. A basic,
one page Web site will
generally cost around
$300, larger sites can cost
thousands of dollars.
What Web masters earn,
therefore, is based largely
on their ability, energy
and drive.
Giroux said there are
many software packages
f now available that make
J the task of building a
'1 I Web site much easier.
V They all do the same sort
of thing, so choosing one
over another is just a mat-
ter of personal choice.
As is the choice of
hardware. Giroux is a devout
Macintosh fan, but he con-
cedes a Personal Computer has
its positive points. In fact, he
keeps a program called virtual
PC on his Mac so he can han-
dle any configuration.

Mobile emergency education center travels to SFCC


Professionals in Central Florida

participate in advanced training

Karen Crowe, Emergency Medicine Learning Center's clinical pro-
grams coordinator, establishes simulation parameters and monitors
trainees from the control room of the mobile simulation lab.


GEEKS
Continued from 13A
This is what I learned. The
Internet is like a highway with
outparcels along the side of the
road. Web sites are the store-
fronts placed on the outparcels,
and the host page is the store-
front's entrance. The host
page's title is the sign over the
front door, and it's the only
way a customer can find you.
Every entrance is identical
in size. "My home page is the
same size as CNN's," said
Giroux. He called the home
page a closet and explained a
site is built around it. "I can
build a two-room bungalow or
a 50-room mansion," Giroux
said, "it all depends on
money."
His main'points were -
one, a company can't afford to
not have a Web site.,,Two, it
doesn't have to be big. Three,,
it does, have to be findable.&.
Four, it has to be easy to use.
Think of your customer first
then think of your product, is
Giroux's, advise.
Company's rise and fall
based on return customers. A
Web site has to lure people
back. If it's complicated or
overly technical, if its pages
don't print well, or require
large amounts of ink to print,
all too often browsers won't
come back.
This is a bad thing because
there's a lot of competition on
the Internet.
How much competition is
there? In 1996, there were
approximately 650,000 Web
sites on the Internet. Currently,
there are more than 8 billion,
58 million Web sites on the
Internet worldwide. That's
more Web sites than people on
Earth. Well, more than 2 bil-
lion more. Giroux himself runs
more than eight.
"When we start a business,
we all say, 'They'll smash our
doors down,' Giroux said.
"Well, you have over 8 billion'
competitors. Good luck."
Signage therefore become
crucial. Signage being the tile
a company uses, the phrasethe
search engines index and
match to requests.


*If your business turns up
with hundreds of thousands, or
even just hundreds, of choices,
and your company isi't near
the top of the first page, you'll
lose most of the brovsers try-
ing to find you. The-:ey is to
get to the top.
Unfortunately, Gioux hasn't
worked out a foolprof method
to do that, although he has had
some success. He feels
longevity is a majoi compo-
nent, but key words are just as
important. Use on's that lead
the search engines to you, he
advised. For example, empha-
size your produce. in the title,
not your location, because
someone looking for a thing
isn't going to send time look-
ing at a place.
The actual business of creat-
ing the Web sie, moving the
mouse and entering data and
commands, istedious, detailed
and very stekby step.
There aremany new soft-
Stare package' which make the
work easie{all the time, baut
Giroux urns all potential Web
masters learn Hyper Text

AVON PARK A state-of-
the-art mobile emergency med-
icine education "facility"
recently visited South Florida
Community College for
advanced training of several
students from Central Florida
counties.
The arrival of the mobile
facility, belonging to the non-
profit Emergency Medicine
Learning Center, helmed by
instructor Karen Crowe, was
coordinated by SFCC's Steve
Ashworth, paramedic instruc-
tor. Ten professionals from sev-
eral Central Florida counties
have been participating in the
advanced training offered by
this facility the only one of its
kind in the country.
Crowe, who also drives the
45-foot behemoth, has an exten-
sive background as a certified
instructor in' many facets of
emergency medicine and disas-
ter response. The bus, which


which is the underlying source
. code.
The truth is, Giroux had
already programmed in a sam-
ple Web site (which he based
on the "Tuffin' It With Tuffley"
feature) before I arrived. This
is a good thing, because we'd
still be there if I had to do the
work. As it is, I only under-
stood half of what he said
when he explained speaking
slowly the work he had
done.
At least I now understand
that a Web master's duties only
begin with the creation of a
Web site. From architect to
interior decorator, to plumber,
electrician, correspondence
secretary and janitor, the good
Web master deals with it all.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley gets in over his head at
the Avon Park High School
pool working as a lifeguard as
long as the weather clears up.
Any business pe't on with a job
they would like to spotlight in
the "Tuffin'It With Tuffley"
feature, call 385-6155, ext.
528.


began its career as a tour bus for
the likes of Patti LaBelle and
Greg Allman, was purchased
through a grant awarded by the
state of Florida Department of
Health, Bureau of EMS.
The one-of-a kind interactive
education facility features real-
istic emergency room and
ambulance environments with
advanced training technology,
and two stations for instructors,
each with three flat screen
video display monitors. The
instructor can control and simu-
late a wide variety of medical
emergencies in real-time, using
three anatomically correct man-
nequins, equipped with an
impressive array of simulation
capabilities, including cardiac
rhythm variations, pulses,
breathing, and vocalizations.
Initially purchased for
$460,000 through state grant
funds, the additional costly
reconfiguring of the coach was,
donated by the sellers,
Entertainment Coaches of
America. The remainder of the
approximate $750,000 total
cost of the program was funded
by various donations and funds
from EMLC. On the road for
the first time in the spring,
SFCC is the third of six rural
Florida community colleges
mandated by state grant to
receive training visits from the
facility.



INTERNET
Continued from 13A
Ontario, Canada, Giroux spent
14 years in the naval branch of
Canadian Armed Forces, and
another 14 years with the
Canadian Postal Service.
It was only after his retire-
ment and his arrival here, that
he began to explore the
Internet seriously, turning his
hobby into a business.

Fireworks can take sparkle from eyes


It's hard to imagine but you'll still hear
the rumbling of a "quarter stick" in some
parts of Highlands County this July. As in a
quarter stick of dynamite.
Because of this, Prevent Blindness
America and Dr. T. Hunter Newsom of
Newsom Eye & Laser Center are reminding
the public that June is National Fireworks
Safety Month, an awareness campaign
geared to making this Fourth of July fun
and safe for the entire family. The effort
will continue through Independence Day.
According to the latest statistics from the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission fireworks accounted for
approximately 9,300 injuries in 2003 with
nearly 14 percent of those eye-related.
These figures do not take into account those
who were left untreated, injuries that occur
anonymously to children and bystanders in
the back yards of America. This is of great
concern to Newsom, a respected eye care
professional in the Highlands County area..
"Every year, I see or hear about those
whose eyesight. has been greatly compro-
mised or lost due to carelessness when han-


Helpfid tips abou
1. Do not rub the eye. Rubbing the eye
ma\ increase bleeding or make the injury
worse.
2. Do not attempt to rinse out the eye.
This can be even more damaging than rub-
bing
3. Do not apply pressure to the eye
itself. Holding or taping a Foam cup or the
bottom of a juice carton to the eye are just
two tips. Protecting the eye from further

dling fireworks. The consensus among eye
care professionals is not to play with fire -
literally. Leave the fireworks to the festivals
and fairs in the area. They organize and
plan the best displays and charge little or
nothing for people to enjoy."
Newsom goes on to say that people often
believe they are handling so called "safe"
alternatives when they buy sparklers, bottle
rockets, or other less volatile pyrotechnics.
He said they are mistaken.
"Sparklers are responsible for a majority
of the injuries to children under 5. They can


t firework safety
contact %kith any item, is the goal.
4. Do not stop for medicine Over-the-
counter pain relievers will not do much to
relve pain. Aspirmn and ibuprofen can thin
the blood, increasing bleeding. Go to the
emergency room at once this is more
important than stopping for a pain reliever.
5. Do not apply ointment. Ointment.
which may not be sterile, makes the area
around the eye slippery and harder for the
doctor to examine.

burn at 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, enough to
rob a small child of their eyesight. Enough
to melt gold," warned Newsom.
Those who wish to use fireworks with
family and friends are urged to wear eye
protection. Safety goggles are readily avail-
able at a nearby hardware store. In many
counties, fireworks are heavily regulated
due to the Federal Hazardous Substance
Act or are illegal.
Newsom Eye & Laser Center offers a
wide range of eye care services. For
appointments, call 385-1544.

This is the third Habitat for

Along with painting, the
work group cut and placed
vinyl siding on their sponsored
house and two other Habitat
homes being built on the same
road. :
"Spending time on a Habitat
home feels good," Jarrett said.
'"It's hard work, but it's hard
work that you enjoy."
The home is being built for
the Dor family. The couple has
two children.
The Dons have put in more
than 400 hours of sweat equity
and have been waiting for their
home for more than two years.

Just call me 'Barney' and pass the ammo


Barney Fyffe was the nerv-
ous deputy on "The Andy
Griffith Show" whose sheriff
made him keep his gun
unloaded and gave him only
one bullet.
He had to keep it in his pock-
et.
Well, I've tried my hand at
firearms. At the risk of making
myself a target for burglars, I
might as well not ever own a
loaded gun: Easier just to club
them with it.
Last month I joined my
friends at a Saturday barbecue.
Everything was great until we
got ready to play horseshoes
under an old live oak. I got sev-
eral ringers around the lower
branches and very nearly
rang the necks of spectators.
Smart ones stood 10 yards off
to my left, away from my
throwing hand.
After I lost that game 20-1,
my friend got out his clay
pigeons and shotgun and invit-
- ed me for some target practice


over his lake.
Now, the last time I
fired a shotgun was ...
never.
My dad has an
antique double-barrel
.12-gauge duck
hunter we never got
to look at. My oldest
brother had a .22-cal-
iber deer rifle as a
teenager. I could just
about hit a tin can at
five feet.


REAL LIFE
PHIL ATTIGER


Five years ago, I took part in
the Jimmy Whitehouse Turkey
Shoot and managed to close the
chamber guard on my thumb.
Two years ago, I finally took a
gun safety course using the
range's .38-caliber revolver.
Note: Never cock the ham-
mer back after you aim the gun.
My finger immediately hit the
trigger, the gun kicked and hit
the target clip the clip hold-
ing the paper target.
My target fluttered to the
. floor. I had to wait for everyone


to cease fire and
watch me while the
instructor reset my
target and explained
that I was merely a
first-class moron.
So, my friend
actually loaded his
own shotgun and
handed it to me along
with a dozen shells
for my pocket.
OK ... Your funer-


He released a clay pigeon
and I took a shot.
Boom! Whiff. Nothing.
I took another: "Pull!"
Boom! Whiff.
Another: "Pull!" Boom!
Whiff.
Even the ducks in the water
were laughing at me. The clay
pigeons would have laughed,
too, if they could.
I tried aiming from the side,
the back, under them.
Everything except standing
right over one. Pull Boom -


Whiff. I couldn't get a hit.
After about 52 whiffs, I fig-
ured two last shots wouldn't
hurt.
I guess I'd finally got the
hang of it because I plugged
one on the first try Success!
So I took one last shot, sure
I'd make it.
"Pull!" Boom! Whiff.
Whether horseshoes, pistols
or shotguns, don't ask me to hit
a target. I've had better luck
throwing footballs and
Frisbees, but like clay pigeons,
you can't reuse them after you
shoot them.
The lesson: If you want to go
hunting, and I come along, give
me a pocket full of shells and
make me guard the beer with an
unloaded shotgun.
I'll just club the next duck
that laughs at me.

Food that goes may not be worth chasing

moving, or food that is "in." To
be honest, I'm not sure what
food is "in" right now for
me, any occasion. calls for
chocolate.
What I am going to discuss is
food that is moving more or less
under its own power. For exam-
ple, let's talk about rolling
cheese.
Me, I like my cheese on top
of a hamburger, or stuffed in an
omelet, or if I'm taking it
straight, bite-sized Swiss
cheese chunks will do for a
snack.
But according to a news story
from the Associated Press, there
is a yearly tradition in
Gloucestershire (a place west of
London, which is a city in
England) that involves rolling
an eight-pound cheese down a
hill so people can chase it 640
feet.
There is a thought that the


Prosecute them

for war crimes
Editor:
Although I back our troops
100 percent, we should not
have invaded Iraq in the first
place.
Those religious fanatics have
been fighting among them-
selves for power and control of
that region for more than 4,000
years.
Although we may give them
a taste of democracy for a short
time, as soon as we pull our
troops out of that area, they will
go right back to fighting
amongst themselves again.
So at the cost of hundreds of
billions of dollars of taxpa ers'
money and loss of more than
1,600 young American lives
and thousands of wounded and
maimed, it will all have been a
deliberate waste.
Our mainstream news
media, which was a deliberate
propaganda machine used to
get the people's support, the
Central Intelligence Agency,
the president and our politi-
cians who lied and got us
involved in this "No Win" war,
all should be prosecuted for
war crimes, as well as all who
profited from this war.
The C.I.A., the president and
those who invented the lies, the
arms manufacturers, the big oil
corporations, the bankers and
the politicians, who backed
those lies, should all be prose-
cuted.
Maybe this will send a mes-
sage, that we don't get involved
in wars unless we are personal-


tradition is based on
some heathen festival to
welcome spring. I'm
wondering what other
traditions come from
this, and if any of them

I'm not talking
about food you can
eat while you are


not eat it.
Excuse me?
If I'm going to go to the trou-
ble of breaking a bone while
chasing my cheese, you'd better
believe I would plan on eating
it. It would owe me.
In addition to the three sus-
pected broken bones, 18 people
were treated for bruises and
abrasions. Given there were
four cheese rolling races, that's
not a bad ratio, I guess. But
when you can buy cheese at a
store, why risk it?
There is no record of any of
the cheeses being charged with
any crime for rolling down the
hill. The same cannot be said
for a chicken in California that
was ticketed for I am not
kidding impeding traffic.
According. to a story on
cnn.com, the chicken got off the
hook (I'm really tempted to say
"out of the fryer") when its
owners' attorney argued that it
was domesticated, and thus
exempt from the laws banning
livestock from the highways.
The chicken's owners, Linc
and Helena Moore, claim they


really got the ticket because
they had complained that local
officials weren't doing enough
to curb off the road vehicle
drivers. The authorities deny
this.
I just find it amazing that
someone would deny a chicken
the right to cross a road. Think
about it: How many jokes
would be untold if chickens
weren't allowed to cross the
road? OK, granted some of
them are quite lame, but even
lame jokes have people that
laugh at them.
Meanwhile, the only time I
want to chase my food is if I
lose control of my shopping
cart in the parking lot. Even
then I will probably enlist my
sons to chase the cart, because
they will probably be the ones
pushing it in the first place and
they run faster than I do.
At least chocolate doesn't
run away from me.

Escrima is a

good alternative
Editor:
Senior tennis and softball
players, do you ever miss the
sound of the "thunk" as the ball
hits the bat or racket? Or the
feel of the vibrations as you
make a solid hit? Joints can't
handle the stress of the quick


movement anymore?
Well, I have found a terrific
alternative. It's called Escrima.
No it is not a medical condi-
tion. It is a Filipino Martial Art
using short rattan or wood
sticks.
In training in Escrima, one
can increase strength, flexibili-
ty, push your limit in cross-
brain training and enjoy the
rhythm and movement of
dance.
Francis Piza is a
Grandmaster of Escrima from
the Philippines. He instructs a
very diverse group ranging
from teens to those who now
qualify for senior discounts. He
cajoles, encourages and keeps-
students smiling as they work


off pounds and frustration.
It's a fairly new sport in
Sebring, but I thought one
worth investigating.

There were people who actu-

people who participated in the

News-Sun, Sunday, June 5, 2005 3



All the love in the world cannot always solve the problem


Watching Prime Time on and very far between. In fact, I
ABC Thursday night I felt sad- am unsure if there are any at all
ness and happiness, in all of Highlands
Although happy GRANDMA WISDOM County. That leaves
that nationwide the burden of men-
coverage was given Diane Thibodeau tal health care for
to the "Lost Diane these children to the
Generation" I was local mental health


saddened that the show seemed
to focus on life in the ghetto
more so then the needs of the
children.
I for one was saddened to see
a child with a grandmother who
refused to hug a little boy so in
need of affection. The majority
of grandparents raising their
grandchildren do it out of love
for the grandchildren, not from
the fact that it is "expected of
them."
Sometimes a child is better
off being adopted by a loving
family than raised by someone
who is doing it only out of a
sense that they are "expected"
to.
How sad for that child and
the others like him who will
need mental health care to over-
come the problems they
encountered during their child-
hood. That young boy will suf-
fer not only because his biolog-
ical parents could not or would
not raise him but also from
being emotionally deprived of
the human need for love.
There is an overabundance of
love in my home for my young
sons and in the homes of the
other grandparents I know who
are raising their grandchildren.
With all these children there
is a strong chance that they will
need mental health counseling
at some point, no matter how
loving the home is. The prob-
lem is getting it for them.
The majority of children we
are raising are covered by
Medicaid. Medicaid approved
mental health clinicians are few


center.
That in itself can be a major
problem as not everyone is
trained to work with the chil-
dren who go through the trau-
mas these children go through.
Many are born drug addicted,
have suffered severe emotional,
physical and sometimes sexual
abuse at the hands of those that
brought them into the world.
Not just your normal behavioral
issues.
Many of these children have
experienced things that are
tucked away in their minds that
a small trigger can bring the
vividness of the horror back.
I found out personally how
hard it is to get mental health
care. for your child if they are
not under a private insurance
plan.
My one young son has mem-
ories of things that his biologi-
cal mother did to him. I allow
him to speak about them to me
without making an issue of
them but it hurts to hear him tell
me what happened to him when
I was not around.
Since I am one that believes
that "Help Before Harm" is the
best way to handle any situation
with a young child, I sought
help for him.
Since the abuse my son
relates happened at an age of
approximately 18 months old
and he is now 4, I was told that
there is no way that he could
remember back to that age. I
was also told that he is not men-
tally ill and does not require
medication.


No, this child of mine is not
mentally ill and does not
require medication! That is not
what I was seeking. What he
needs is someone capable of
drawing out his memories, let-
ting him talk about them, and
relieving his mind that he was
not at fault for what happened.
I was asking for help for him
before he started in the public
school system to stop any
behavioral issues he may have
at school and was told "Well, if
he has problems at school they
will call us."
Wrong answer to give to this
mommy. Why should I wait for
a problem to arise when it can
be taken care of beforehand. He
just needs to talk to someone
about his anger at his biological


mother for hurting him.
I have vivid recollection of
my parents fighting and baby
bottles being thrown. Those
bottles belonged to my brother
who is 16 months my junior.
Imagine the recall of children
who have been neglected and
abused in various methods then
taken from the abuse, spend a
few nights in foster care and
then given to grandma to raise.
They have fears, anger and
other unseen emotions running
through their minds and no one
to help them understand any of
it.
My son will get the help he
needs in dealing with the emo-
tions going on in his mind of
why his biological mother held


his head under the water. When
he started telling me about this
it was very hard to keep my
anger at his biological mother
hidden, but I did. It hurts to
know that he went through
something that I could not pro-
tect him from.
Just the fact that this popped
out of his mouth when I asked
him one day why he was acting
so angry makes me wonder how
many other children have hid-
den anger and are not getting
help.
I often write about the strug-
gles that grandparents raising
their grandchildren go through
to raise them in a healthy and
loving environment with the
lack of finances and moral sup-
port. This is another very big


issue for the grandparents since
most of these children have
emotional damage.
All the love in the world can-
not take away the horrors these
children remember.
Just the fact that their biolog-
ical parents could not or would
not raise them is an issue within
itself. It is not a "why me?"
with them, it is "I must not be
good enough to have a mommy
and daddy to love me."
Oh, to be in a fairy tale where
a magic wand can be used to
take all these children's prob-
lems away ... I wish. But this is
real life and this is reality.
These children need to
receive the proper mental health
therapy for their emotional bag-


gage in order for them to turn
into well-rounded adults in the
future. The children are not
only the future of the United
States but of Highlands County
itself. Do we dare let them
down?
Somehow we have to provide
these children with the correct
mental health care as soon as
problems are seen and the child
is vocal enough to be able to
talk about them. Labeling a
child Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder and put-
ting them on medication when
there are behavior problems is
not always the correct thing to
do. Anger within a child for
things that have occurred to
them in the past can and will
come out in various forms of
behaviors.
The director of the local
mental health center and I
spoke a couple weeks ago. I
was told to expect a call from
someone that would be able to
help my son. I have never
received a call back.
Although covered by state
health insurance only usable at
the local mental health center,
my son will get the help he
needs even if I have to pay for
private therapy. He may not be
important to the local mental
health center, but he and his
brother are important to me.
When you stop and think
about the grandparents them-
selves who are raising grand-
children, the emotional turmoil
is already high. They are raising
a second generation of children
very unexpectedly.
It comes with doubts and
fears. Add to that emotionally
damaged children not getting
the help they need and you have
tensions mounting. In my opin-
ion, mental health is just as, if
not more, important than physi-


cal health. Emotions can wreak
havoc on your physical body so
we need to care about our entire
beings.
How to take care of this
problem with the mental health
issues is something I am not
sure of.
Can more private therapists
be allowed under the Medicaid
payment system so that the bur-
den of the amount of children
does not fall on an already over-
burdened mental health center?
Or, can the mental health center
be restructured to meet the
needs of those with emotional
baggage more effectively? Can
we as a people help these chil-
dren before any more emotional
harm befalls them?
I continue to offer support to
those in this area raising grand-
children or kin children. We do
have monthly meetings that,
effective in June, will fall on the
third Saturday of each month.
These gatherings include a meal
together with information and
support given and the chance
for the children to get together
also. Much of the information I
supply is given to me by the
Florida Kinship Center of
University of South Florida's
School of Social Work for
which I am very appreciative.
I also have many items avail-
able to those raising these chil-
dren who are in need of cloth-
ing, toys, and miscellaneous
articles.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
June 3, 1995: Skylar Sack
and reliever Johnny
Harrison combined to no-
hit Bill Jarrett Ford in a 5-1
win for Bagwell Lumber in
Avon Park Dixie Youth
action.
Sack struck out eight
through four innings, and
gave his team all the
offense it needed with a
three-run homer in the bot-
tom of the first.

25 Years Ago
June 5, 1980: Curtis Taylor
pitched a no-hitter for
Kopta and Bennett, but
three walks, an error and a
wild pitch allowed two runs
in the second inning,
enough for Avon Citrus
Bank and pitcher Tim
Devlin, who threw a one-
hitter, to win 2-0 in Avon
Park senior league action.
The only hit of the game
was a second-inning single
by Lawrence Spry.

2005 News-Sun
Player of the Year
Rose Charles


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
W hen the lights got brighter, so
L did the play of Rose Charles.
The senior guard took over
the Lake Placid team lead in
scoring two-thirds of the way through the sea-
son, and then pumped in a season-high 28
points in the district title game to lead the Lady
Green Dragons to the championship and seal
up the honor of News-Sun Highlands County
Player of the Year.
"She realized, I think, within herself, the
teams we would be playing would be focused
on her, and that allowed other kids, such as
f April (Hale), such as Whitney (Lee), to step
up when she did," said Shonda LeGree, the
Lake Placid head coach who also earned coach
of the year honors.
The selection to the News-Sun All-
County team is the fourth for Charles,
who this year averaged 13 points,
5.5 steals, 5.1 rebounds and 4.8
assists per game.
"Games she wasn't on
a offensively, she was on
defensive-wise,"
LeGree added.
tTwo other Lady


Dragons, seniors April Hale and Carletta Robinson, mape the
All-County team after helping Lake Placid go 20-2 before a
first-round playoff exit against the Tampa Academy of the
Holy Names.
Here is the rest of the All-County team:
Jenna Kniffen
Avon Park
Avon Park's senior post was an anchor underneath, and her
experience, as well as her team-leading 9.4 points per game,
were keys to a playoff season for the Lady Red Devils.
"Over the years she has grown, and this year she has been
dominating," Avon Park head coach Christie Hipps said.
"She was a major asset for the team this year. I hate for her
to go, and I know everybody has to leave here, but she's
going to be missed a lot."
Kysi Wooden
Avon Park
The sophomore forward took advantage of her first full
season on varsity, and was second on the team in scoring
with nine points a game, while also contributing an average
of 2.6 rebounds.
"Kysi was more or less the go-getter," Hipps said. When
she's underneath, she's going to try to put it back in there and
give it her best to do the job. Overall, she improved this year,
very much, because she had more playing time to get the
experience."

Smith-Barney/Rotary tourney


Hutchenson, Farthing

win with 5-under 67
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING When Peter Coughlin
stood up among the other 96 participants
and announced that he had won one of
the 40-something door prizes during the
raffle section of the 16th annual Smith-
Bamey/Sebring Sunrise Rotary golf tour-
nament banquet on Saturday, the memo-
ries came racing back.
"Hey, remember what we did last year
to Pete?" one man at the assembly said to
Dale Grubb, director of the tournament
for each of the past 16 years. Across the
lunch table his ear-to-ear smile broke
once again only to add, "That was so
funny, and boy was he mad."
Everyone around the table, joined his
laugh about what happened a year ago.
When hosting a golf tournament for a
decade and a half, it's almost necessary to
keep things interesting, practical jokes
included. And Coughlin, owner of the
Cohan Radio Group, found that out after
declaring he would give $2,000 of his
own money to anyone who hit a hole-in-
one during last year's Rotary tournament,
then held at Sun 'N Lake. He had done it
in the past, but the odds were so slim that
no one had achieved the feat.
During the round Grubb and partner
Bill Boyd jumped on the opportunity and
decided they would fix that whether
someone had successfully dropped one in
or not setting up a tournament-wide
practical joke on Coughlin.
The pair fabricated a story that partici-
pant Gary Boardman had in fact sunk his
tee shot on a par-3 and got tournament
volunteers and officials to vouch for
them. After creating a buzz in the club-
house that the story was true, newspaper

Like Shaq, NBA should help out its pioneers


Shaquille O'Neal is no saint, but he
did come up with a nice idea.
Assuredly, the cost of a funeral for
George Mikan will not be so, great as to
render Shaq as scrapped for cash as the
Mikans are. Considering it's not like
Shaq has to pay for a meal in any
Miami restaurants anyway, it's not like
he's going to go hungry.
Still, the Heat center's magnanimous
gesture toward the man who more or
less defined the center position in the
NBA should not go unpraised.
Of course, when he made the offer to
pay for the funeral on national televi-
sion, during an on-court interview sec-
onds after Miami's Game 5 victory
against Detroit, he knew the deed would

Chuck Myron


not go unrecog-
nized, but nitpicking
over whether Shaq
was grandstanding
misses the point.
It's heartening to
see the pampered
professional athlete
of today make any
kind of outreach,
even more so to a
man without whom
the younger athlete
would never have
attained such suc-


cess and excess.
It's just as unusually satisfying to see
a player who understands the history of


the game, and who develops relation-
ships with his professional forebears, as
Shaq had done in his now well-publi-
cized conversations with Mikan.
During the course of their talks,
Mikan no doubt related to Shaq the dif-
ferent realities of the NBA in the 1940s
and '50s. There weren't million-dollar
contracts, and when a Pistons fan came
after you, there was no pity.
"When we played in Fort Wayne, Ind.,
they had this runway you came out of
when you came on the court," Mikan told
the Chicago Sun-Times about visits to the
former home of the Pistons franchise.

Experience with live bait goes way back

Continued from 1C
reporters and other officials
gathered around the stage of the
banquet, snapping pictures as
Boardman and Coughlin shook
hands. As the banquet began to
disassemble, Grubb then told
the audience that the story was
simply that, a story, and that
Boardman finished the hole like
anyone else.
Coughlin was visibly upset.
"He was so mad that he
wouldn't even talk to me until
January (six months later),"
said Grubb.
This year, the location for the
two-player best ball event shift-
ed to Highlands Ridge North
and Boardman took third place
in the second flight with team-
mate Lars Byland, shooting a 1-
over 73. But by a match of
cards, Mike Carter and Decker
Todd took" second the second
flight and Dana Harris and
- Danny Buchanan won the flight
with a round of 70.
In the championship flight,
Craig Hutchenson and Tom
Farthing's 5-under 67 was good
enough for first and also served
as the low round for the day.
Just behind the pair was a 70
shot by Vince Liles and Randy

April Hale
Lake Placid
After making the jump from
junior varsity last year, the sen-
ior guard averaged 11.1 points
a game and dished out 3.1
assists. Yet LeGree said her
quickness led to nights when
she scored as many as 18
points on layups alone.
"She's got to be the fastest
point guard in the county," the
coach said.
Carletta Robinson
Lake Placid
The senior center saved her
best for games against county
rivals and postseason oppo-
nents, but still wound up aver-
aging 10.4 rebounds and 5.4
points over the entire season.
"Defensive-wise she'd crash
the boards, and then her num-
bers, point-wise, were always
up considerably, especially
from the free-throw line,"


Proctor.
One shot back was Bud
Wester and Don Sisemore with
a71.
The first flight was also taken
by three strokes when John
Donahue and teammate Bob
Parker's 70 was good enough to
fight off Rick Proverb and
James Lizotte, who finished
second. Sebring High School
graduate Matt Cornuet and his
former coach Wayne Stapleford
rounded out the flight with a 74.
Dr. Patel and Kim Schlosser
managed to hold on to first
place in the third flight with a
75, only one stroke ahead of
Eric Sevigny and Craig
Landress. Terry Little and part-
ner Ron Wilson held on to take
third place with an 82 on the
day.
Finally, the round of 75 by
Ben Taylor and Toby Taylor
was all that was needed to grab
the top spot in the fourth flight,
fp.jtqwed closely by Gary 4einz
and Dave Cox; who, finished
with a 76. Gary Dressel and
Logan Dressel teamed up to
take third with a 79 overall.
Closest to the pin on hole No.
13 was grabbed by Mike
Shawver, and No. 6 it was Dan
Harris.
The longest drive on hole
No. 14 was whacked by Wester


LeGree said. "She played real
aggressively down low when
we played the rival teams."
Shakinah Crumity
Sebring
Crumity was Sebring head
coach Robert Sampson's only
returning starter this season,
but the versatile junior
responded with a multi-faceted
game he could plug in at both
guard and both forward posi-,
tions.
"Just her athletic ability.
alone made the difference,"
Sampson said of Crumity, who
had averages of 12.5 points,
8.2 rebounds, 6.6 assists and
four steals. "She was key on
defense a lot of times, too."
Maryam Younes
Sebring
Senior small forward
Maryam Younes put up 7.2
points and five rebounds a

ular starter, but came up with
her most impressive numbers

the people in the stands.
"As you came out, one lady in particular we
called her Ma Collins had a saddlebag. And
she wouldhit you with that thing, hit you hard
with her purse."
The medicine, physical therapists and piles of
cash that are around these days to salve such
wounds weren't there when Mikan played on
rock-hard floors like the one at the Minneapolis
Armory, which he said ruined his knees.
In return, Mikan received a monthly pension
check of $1,000 after he retired, his son told the
Associated Press. This was hardly enough to
cover expenses, and his son added that most of
Mikan's awards and memorabilia had been sold
off.
And remember, Mikan played back when they
didn't give out trophies for Western Conference
championships.

The entire day went off with-

flict with Mother Nature.
"It's amazing," clubhouse
pro Debbie McNall said about
the weather. "I woke up at 4:30
this morning and it was still
raining, but we came out and
we knew as long as it wasn't
lightning we would still play.
These guys are golfers and they
know that we would still play as
long as there was no lightning."
McNall said that despite the
torrential rain in days past, the
course was in beautiful shape
and puddles were few and far
between.
"We had to use walk mowers
to cut the grass instead of the,
riding mowers. Other than that
the guys are on top of the
course. Yesterday we had about
80 people golfing while it was
raining and there were no pud-
dles." .
"The charities we support we
raise about $15,000 for them.
We give to Potter's House, local
charities and also Healthy Kids,

Grubb said about the proceeds.
"We give out 100 percent of the
proceeds over 12 months and
we've got about 112 hole spon-

"She anticipated the ball really

Walker Academy
The county's leading scorer
this year wiht 16 points per
game finished off a decorated
career at Walker Academy as
the school's all-time scoring
champ with 1,025 points, and
holds the records for most field
goals, 3-pointers and free
throws made as well..
"There's virtually nothing in
the scoring side that she does-
n't hold right now," Walker
head coach Bill Farmer said.
"Pound-for-pound I'd put her
up against anyone in the coun-
ty."

ment to provide pension benefits for those who
played before 1965.
Perhaps this is the opportunity for others to
follow Shaq's lead, and give back to their fore-
bears. The NBA Players Association should pick
up where Mikan left off, and insist that the NBA
help those who helped establish the league.
Older NBA veterans who are in failing health,
like Mikan, who lost a leg to diabetes in 2000 and
had been going through kidney dialysis three
times a week before he died, deserve a piece of
the same pie they first put in the oven years ago.
Even for those players who can't bear to act in
any way that is not in their self-interest, there is
benefit. In the wake of Mikan's death, there
would be no greater banner to wave in the court
of public opinion than the very cause he champi-
oned. As much as sports labor disputes are based
on public relations, this would give the players a
distinct advantage.
Then, perhaps, after the next generation of
players is blessed with a sweetheart labor deal,
they can all give thanks to Shaq, whose gesture of
kindness started it all.

I think that most would
agree that golden shiners catch
more trophy-size largemouth
bass in Florida than any other
type bait thrown at them. I
have never caught a trophy
largemouth using a shiner for
bait, though I have caught bass
in the 8- and 9-pound range
using shiners.
When I was a youngster, I
sometimes caught bass using
live bait, but that was way
back when I waded the creeks
with my pant legs rolled up,
catching minnows with a
homemade seine. I remember
one summer I didn't have a
minnow bucket, so I carried an
old water bucket. Yes, it was
ungainly and heavy, but I only
filled it about one-third full of
water.
When I had what I thought
was enough assorted minnows;
including horny-nose chubs, I
would light out for the Lone
Star Cement plant. They had
constructed three large ponds
several years before my time
and they harbored a lot of
largemouth bass.
They had no trespassing
signs posted everywhere, but I
ignored them and sort of
sneaked through the wooded
area around the larger pond on
the far side from the main
plant. I was pretty well hidden
in the brush as I rigged my
pole for fishing.
I had a short cane pole with
a black fishing line attached. I
can't remember how or where
I got the line, because I sure
couldn't have bought it. I used
a floater, sometimes whittling
one before I left home. I would

put a minnow on the hook with
a small lead shot a few inches
ahead of it.
Sometimes I hooked the
minnow through the tail and
sometimes through the lips. It -
seemed to stay on longer
hooked through the tail, though
the bass didn't care much
which way it was hooked and
seemed to take it equally either
way.
I always had a piece of
strong line for a stringer, and I
would tie it to a heavy, green
willow switch and push it into
the soft bank to hold my catch.
Some days, I didn't need to
have bothered with the stringer
as the bass had evidently eaten
breakfast before I got there, but
other days I would catch bass
weighing up to as much as 4
pounds. Of course, I caught
many more small bass than
large ones. I can't remember
that we had any size limits on
bass .back then.
It always ruined the day to
see a fellow coming around the
pond from the direction of the
plant. I knew I had been spot-
ted, so I'd quickly roll up my


line, gather my stringer and my
minnows and disappear into
the brush.
Often, if it had been a good
day, I trekked on home with
my home-made tackle and
stringer of bass. And some-
times, when my stringer was
empty, I hid in the woods until
the interloper gave up and
went back to work. I was just a
kid and I always felt good
when I had outfoxed the guy
who was sent to run me out.
Oh, I was caught by surprise
a few times and the guy was
never very friendly about it. He
was usually swearing at me all
the way to the railroad, which
was their property line. That
didn't deter me. The bass were
so much fun to catch and so
good at supper time that I
would be back in a couple of
days and, if I wasn't careful,
we would do it all over again.
If those ponds had not had
such a good supply of large-
mouth bass, I wouldn't have
learned much about the fish
and would probably never have
been a bass angler. I am cer-
tainly not a professional, but
bass fishing has brought me
much enjoyment over the years
and when I see anything bear-
ing the Lone Star name, it sure
brings back fond memories of
wading bare foot with rolled
up pant legs, chasing those
horny-nose chubs and getting
chased in turn.
It was sure a lot of fun being
a kid back then.

Henin-Hardenne crushes Pierce to win French Open


Associated Press
PARIS Grand Slam, indeed!
Justine Henin-Hardenne slammed Mary Pierce
grandly in the French Open final on Saturday,
reducing the Frenchwoman to tears and an apol-
ogy to fans after the most lopsided title match at
Roland Garros in 17 years.
Henin-Hardenne couldn't have played much
better, or Pierce much worse, than they did in a 6-
1, 6-1 drubbing that gave the Belgian her second
Frepch championship and fourth major trophy
just months after she returned to tennis from a
long layoff caused by an energy-draining'blood
virus and a knee injury.


"It's a lot of emotion for me," a smiling Henin-
Hardenne said in French as she accepted the same
ornate Suzanne Lenglen Cup she won in 2003,
along with a check for just over $1 million. "I
lived through very difficult moments last year.
This fills me with happiness."
Bedridden at times during her seven-month
absence from the game untit starting her come-
back in March; and bothered'by a back injury the
past two weeks, Henin-Hardenne looked the pic-
ture of health in a masterful performance on a
breezy, occasionally drizzly afternoon at Roland
Garros.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

A graduate's

first choice
Another graduating class
has left behind those forma-
tive, preparatory years and
is taking their first steps
into the future. Many choic-
es call to them.
Some grads are heading
for college; others, voca-
tional training.
Entrepreneurs are pursuing
their dream of starting busi-
nesses of their own. Still
others may be on their way
to military training.
It takes courage to leave
the familiar and move into
the unknown. Hopefully,
they are building on a
strong foundation.
Parents, too, must adjust.
Suddenly, the cords that still
bind their children to them
are stretched further so they
can test their wings; be
challenged in their personal
faith and stand on their own
two feet.
Parents will still,be there
for them. But, this passage
into independence stretches
mom and dad along with
the graduating senior.
I have gotten to know a
fine young man who has
only been out of high
school a couple of years. He
pursued the dream of own-
ing a lawn care business.
He faithfully does our lawn,
manages those who work
for him, plus takes care of
the business aspects. He's
honest and dependable.
But, his dreams haven't
ended because he has
achieved this measure of
success. Now he looks for-
ward to one day attending
firefighter school so that he
can have more involvement
in the community ah a vol-
unteer. I applaud him for his
vision and the purpose he is
pursuing. ,
It's a blessing to see him
worship each Sunday in our
church. He has made a
choice that affects the pres-
ent, future and eternity.
He is a young man of
faith.
Of all the choices that
face our young people
today, the choice of faith is
the most important. If they
don't make God their first
choice in life, somewhere
along the line they'll be
compelled to turn to him as
their last resort. He will still
be there. But, oh how much
they'll miss; how much pain
can be avoided if they will
chose God first and let him
lead.
When a young person
puts God first, he's not
alone in the challenges and
decisions of life.
"Trust in the Lord with
all your heart and lean not
on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowl-
edge him, and he will make
your path straight."
(Proverbs 3: 5 & 6, NIV)
He knows that God has
him here for a purpose and
has wired him a certain
way. Therefore, he lets him
direct his steps.
"For I know the plans I
have for you," declares the
Lord, "plans to prosper you
and not to harm you, plans
to give you hope and a
future." (Jeremiah 29: 11,
NIV)
As our graduates look to
the future and the choices
that beckon, I hope they
will make God their first
choice. Selah.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Ann loved keeping her home.
Growing up and sharing small quarters
with siblings had taught her the art of
organization, tidiness and order.
Consequently, she brought this posi-
tive trait into her marriage. Whether liv-
ing in a small apartment or in a more
spacious home, every cubby hole reflect-
ed her neatness.
In turn, Don had taken on his mother's
perfectionist traits. So he appreciated
Ann's white glove approach to house-
keeping. However, there was one place


they differed.
She was sentimental
and enjoyed saving
things. He was impul-
sive and quick to .
throw things away.
This caused several
disruptive moments
between them. His '
impulsiveness didn't
only affect sentimental
things, but practical graphicby:FREDKOI
items as well.
"What happened to our folding
chairs?" she questioned one day as she
planned for the company arriving for
Christmas.
"I threw them away," he replied,
unashamedly.
"Threw them away? How could you?"
"We haven't used them in umpteen
years. So I figured they weren't impor-
tant," he yelled back in self-defense.
"You could have at least asked before
throwing them away," she said angrily.
Unfortunately, her anger only stirred
up his defenses. He remained defiant,
even though some guilt lay buried under
the surface as he scrambled to the
neighbors to borrow some chairs.
Over the years, these instances added
up and came to verbal blows that put a


Audibel
Foundation and
Audibel Hearing
Services give
away hearing
aids during
mission trip

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING
M ost people think
yelling children,
rumbling traf-
fic, or chirping
insects is part of a normal life.
They may even complain about
it.
This spring, some people in
Cozumel and Costa Caya,
Mexico; Belize city, Belize;
and San Juan, Puerto Rico, got
to hear those sounds for the
first time, and were thankful.
John Hoglund with H.&M.
Hearing in Fort Myers, his
wife, Pat Hoglund and Mike
Arpasi of Audibel Hearing
Services in Sebring took a
three-week mission trip with


wedge between them.
The wedge was
uncomfortable full
of angles that prodded
-L and poked. But, it was-
n't until Don inadver-
tently discarded a tool
of his own some-
thing he needed and
had to pay the price to
buy again that he
LER/NEWSSUN knew how his wife
really felt.
Contritely, he approached her.
"Ann," he said in all genuineness,
"I'm sorry for all the times I threw away
something you considered important."
She just looked at him. What was this
all about?
Then he explained how he 'ad tossed
out an expensive tool and would have to
stretch their budget to buy it again.
It would have been the perfect time to
get angry again or laugh out loud just for
the satisfaction of it. But Ann knew what
it- had cost Don to "fess-up."
Instead, she hugged him. His pride
had taken a beating, but the wedge
between them was gone replaced by
the comforting cushion of apology and
forgiveness.

So the


may hear

The smiles on kid's faces make it all worth it to technicians who took
part in the Audibel Foundation's mission to Latin America this
spring. One girl's expression is as profound as her hearing loss as
Pat Hoglund of Tampa adjusts the fit of her left hearing aid.


the Audibel Foundation. It
ended a month ago, but in all,
555 adults and children in vari-
ous countries received hearing
aids and instructions on main-
taining them.'
John Hoglund usually works
with geriatric people. Many
were pediatric kids with
profound loss including a
whole boatload from an
orphanage, some of them aban-
doned because of their hearing
loss. From each hearing aid he,
his wife and Arpasi sells, a
portion goes to the foundation.
Pat Hoglund said each techni-
cian also makes a $2,500 dona-
tion to support the 30-60 mis-
sion trips each year on all con-
tinents. This trip inspired her to
take part next year, for as long
as she can.
"When (people) can't hear,"
Pat Hoglund said, "they are
completely disconnected from
the world."
People with old hearing aids
shoved in a drawer can donate
them to help a child in a for-
eign country. It changes lives.
John Hoglund said when chil-
dren receive a hearing aid, they
go from extremely withdrawn
to outgoing, and finally can
talk with family and friends.

Time barrier
They had to do it all in one
day, Arpasi said. Royal
Caribbean Cruise Lines donat-
ed its Explorer of the Seas
cruise ship and staff to provide
transportation, guides and cus-
toms clearance. Technicians
hauled what they needed on
foot nine blocks on Cozumel
Island, off Mexico's Yucatan
Peninsula, including heavy


Juan Diego Castro gestures t !'his left ear as (from left) Pat Hoglund, Mike Arpasi and John Hoglund fit
him with hearing aids as part of the Audibel Foundations mission this spring to Latin America. All told,
285 patients were helped in a clinic at a hotel on Cozumel Island, Mexico, and the mission gave hearing
aids to 555 people in Belize, Mexico and Puerto Rico.


iron Red Wing grinder and
buffing wheel, to a hotel where
the foundation arranged a one-
day clinic. People waited
patiently, after traveling as
much as six or eight hours for
an over-the-ear hearing aid.


Sound barrier
Children, ages 2-10 years
old, had profound hearing loss.
John Hoglund said it often
comes from using quinine to
treat fever. The drug also kills
hearing One xoung boy's
hearing loss was so bad he had
to have a pocket-mounted
hearing aid with double ear-
phones.
One single mom, a nurse,
said she couldn't hear well,
and was missing doctors'
instructions. Getting her a
hearing aid saved both her job
and perhaps someone else's
life, Arpasi said. Even an 80-
90 year old woman descended
from Mayan royalty sat stoical-
ly while the Hoglunds fit her
with a hearing aid.

Speech barrier
Patients couldn't hear tech-
nicians or speak with them to
adjust hearing aids for fit and
volume if they could. With
children, usually, the teams
would pop their mouths, snap
fingers or clap hands to test a
hearing aid. Spanish inter-
preters helped, but even then,
young children had speech
problems only years of practice
with hearing will help.
"(We) take it for granted,"
Arpasi said. "They don't have
much of a future until we can
do something about that."


Warm-up time
Self can be a daunting force. When
"self' rears its ugly head, be careful
to see it as a red flag of warning.
Stop. Reevaluate your next move in
light of "us" not "me."

Sit-up and take notice
Take those few steps from the
basement, attic or garage to where
your spouse is. Take her hand and
bring her to the object of your con-
cern. Give her the.opportunity to say
"yea" or "nay." If more discussion is
needed, wait don't act.

Curl-up together
Communication builds bridges of
understanding and keeps pride at bay.
It does wonders for transforming a
splitting wedge into one that holds
the door open to forgiveness.

Soul fitness
"Do nothing out of selfish ambi-
tion or vain conceit, but in humility
consider others better than your-
selves. Each of you should look not
only to your own interests, but also to
the interests of others." (Philippians
2: 3& 4, NIV)


Pat and John Hoglund fit an elderly woman descended from Mayan
royalty with hearing aids during the Audibel Foundation mission
this spring to Latin America.


Discarding pride can be costly, but worth it

Royalty gets a holiday a


June 6 and 13 are
holidays I'm not sure
how to celebrate.
What do you do to
properly acknowl-
edge the Queen of
England's birthday in
New Zealand and
Australia? I would
think you would
hang the British flag LIBRAR
and maybe: have
some fireworks, Ca
much like our Fourth Hes
of July celebrations. -
You might invite
your friends over for a cup'of
tea and a scone. There might
even be a special program on
the telly.
Perhaps I need to read up on
all this in "The Complete Idiot's
Guide to British Royalty." If
that's two insulting to your
intelligence, then how about
"Don't Know Much About the
Kings and queens of
England?"
Library books are here for
the inquiring reader to find out
the scoop on women of the
monarchy, including women
who lived long before the
British crowned their first
queen. You will enlightened
by "Leap of Faitlh Memoirs of
an Unexpected Life,"
"Maharanis: The extraordinary
Tale of Four ,Indan Queens,"
"The Forgotten Monarchy of
Scotland," "Nt fertiti: An
Archaeological: Biography" or
"Cleopatra: Histories, Dreams
and Distortions."I
Take a trip through time with
"Seven Sovereig Queens" or
"A Book of Fadous Queens."
English queens Oe well repre-


IY LINES

sented on our shelves
with books as varied
as their personalities.
Try "Anne Boleyn,"
"Catherine: The
Queen," "Elizabeth
of York: The Mother
of Henry VIII,"
"Elizabeth and Mary,
Cousins, Rivals,
Queens," "The
Reluctant Queen:
The Story of Anne of
York," "The Children
of Henry VIII" and
"Queen Eleanor,


Independent Spirit of the
Medieval World."
More recent English history
would include "Queen Victoria
and 19th Century England,"
"Queen Mary, 1867-1953,"
"Behind Palace Doors:
Marriage and Divorce in the
House of Windsor," and
"Behind the Mask: The life of
Queen Elizabeth."
Much more is available in
books that include the kings of
England, and we have some of
the years of the annual pictorial
book series called "The Royal
Year."
If you wear or collect jewel-
ry or just want to spend time
admiring precious metals and
gems, check out "The Jewels of
Queen Elizabeth II." We also
have a book on the jewelry col-
lection of Elizabeth Taylor, but
being a movie queen is a bit dif-
ferent and doesn't seem to rate
a mention on our calendars.
Perhaps you weren't aware
that .our state of Hawaii once
was a royal domain. Find out
the tale in "The Betrayal of
Lilinokalani, Last Queen of


Hawaii."
I still haven't gotten rid of
the queen of a particularly
active ant colony, despite my
efforts at poisoning her.
Perhaps I should read more
closely those history books and
find out how they did it! Or
maybe I should just accept the
fact that every termite, bee, and
ant colony needs a queen to sur-
vive and the subjects will pro-
tect her at the cost of their lives.
I'll have to be much more dili-
gent, more cunning, in order to
polish off the ant kingdom that
currently lives inside my walls.
Queens are an important part
of our lives, whether we know
it or not. Examine a set of cards
and you'll find a queen. Collect
antique furniture, and you'll see
Queen Anne style. Drive a
country road and there in the
ditch will be growing Queen
Anne's Lace. Talk to a truss
company, and they'll tell you
that one of the two vertical tie
posts in a roof truss is called a
queen post.
In chess, the queen is the
most powerful piece, and the
area of Seville, Spain, grows a
special queen olive. Australia
even named one of its regions
Queensland, so we might as
well face it....queens will
always be with us.

Anglo-Saxon royalty were martyrs, Crusaders and religious men


A few face's about Anglo-Saxon kings and
queens:
Egbert King of Wessex was the first of the
Saxon kings, reigning from 802 to 839.
Edward the Martyr was only 12 when he
became the kingof Saxony in 975. Three years
later, he was murdered on the orders of his step-
mother. Buried without royal ceremony, he
gained fame an'rong religious pilgrims who
Tecounted that ml'acles were being performed at
his tomb.
The Saxon' king Edward the Confessor
(1042-1066) established Westminster Abby.
Today his bonesremain in the shrine behind the
high abby.
William 11' also known as William the
Conquerer. rul~i England from 1087 to 1100.
After a long carter of defending his kingdom mil-
Itarily, he was filled in a hunting accident.
King CanUte, king of the Danes from 1016-
1035, encouraged the spread of Christianity
throughout his kingdom. His religious devotion
was recognized when he was invited to attend
the coronatior of a new pope in 1027.
Richard II. also known as Richard the
Llonheart. rued from 1189-1199. He spent only
a few months of his reign in England, however;
the rest oPthe time. he was chasing military
adventure, Particularly in the Crusades in the
Holy Lands- While he was out of the country, his
corrupt younger brother, John, took charge. They


became prominent fictional figures in the leg-
endary tale "Robin Hood."
The Scottish king Robert Bruce (1306-29)
had a difficult time keeping his rivals at bay.
While hiding from his enemies in a hut, legend
has it that he was inspired by the sight of a spi-
der, who was spinning her web and failed to
reach a beam six times. Bruce wagered that if ,
she reached trie beam on the seventh try, he
would continue defending his crown. She did -
and he did.
Henry VIII is one of the most famous and
controversial English kings for executing his
political opponents including several of his six
wives, being excommunicated from the Catholic
Church and establishing the Church of England.
He reigned from 1509-47.
During his reign from 1760-1820, George
III suffered from dementia, derangement and
blindness. Some attributed his mental illness to
his despair over having lost a long and costly war
to keep England's 13 rebellious American
colonies from breaking their ties with their moth-
erland and forming their own country.
Elizabeth II, the reigning British queen, has
had to contend with a threat that her pre-
cedessors did not attacks from an increasingly
intrusive press.
Shakespeare often wrote about royalty in
plays such as "Richard II," the two-parter "Henry
IV." "Henry V" and "Hamlet."

time we can all say we have wondered if God will


ever finish or complex
life. We may get sta
seem to complete. Th
that is not how God P

Heart of Highlands

entertains prospective

members at guest night


AVON PARK The
Heart of Highlands Show
Chorus of Sweet Adelines
entertained 27 prospective
members at its annual guest
night on May 26.
In keeping with the
evening's Hawaiian theme,
members wore Hawaiian out-
fits, and each guest receive a
lei as she arrived.
Director Joy Loomis wel-
comed those in attendance.
She explained the history of
barbershop music and the
four divisions of singers -
bass, baritones, leads and'
tenors. Together, their voices
capture what has become
known as barbershop harmo-


Loomis asked guests to
gather around the piano and
sing a selection to determine
which four-part musical tone
they could sing. Guests then,
took part in singing along
with the chorus.
Hawaiian foods were
served. Geri McQueen and
Barbara Kelleher were in
charge of food.
Presently, the chorus has
37 members. It hopes to
expand its membership to 50
or more.
Meetings are from 7-10
p.m. on Thursdays at the
Rotary Club in Avon Park.
For details, call Jeanne
Parzygnat at 699-0743 or
441-1207.

Pollen plagues allergy sufferers in spring and summer


Millions of Americans suffer from sneez-
ing, coughing, itching, runny noses, and
watering eyes when the pollen starts to fly.
Each spring, summer and fall tiny parti-
cles of pollen are released from trees,
weeds, and grasses. The pollen hitches
rides on currents of air, but instead of
reaching other plants to fertilize it makes
unscheduled detours into people's noses
and throats.
At these sites, the pollen can trigger the
allergic reaction. In fact, pollen is the most
widespread cause of allergies and it is the
most difficult to avoid.
When people are allergic to foods, drugs
or animals, they can usually avoid them to
a great extent. The only way to avoid pollen
is by staying indoors when the pollen count
is high, and even that may not help. There
is just no easy way to avoid windbourne
pollen.
What is pollen?
Plants produce the microscopic round or
oval grains called pollen in order to repro-
duce.
In some species, the plant uses the pollen
from its own flowers to fertilize itself and
produce seeds. Other types of plants rely on
cross-pollination that is, in order to pro-
duce seeds, the plant must receive pollen
from another plant of the same species.
Insects do this job for certain flowering


plants, while other plants rely on
wind to transport pollen.
Pollen allergies are most com-
monly caused by plain-looking
plants that do not produce showy
flowers, such as trees, grass and
weeds.


Pollen allergy symptoms '
Pollen is one of many particles
that becomes suspended in the GRO
air we breath. It can often be dif-
ficult to tell the difference SEJ
between the symptoms of an -
allergic reaction and a cold. High
When you inhale pollen, it County
acts as an irritant and causes Garc
mast cells in your nasal passages -
to release chemicals. This can result in
inflammation and increased mucous secre-

If your symptoms worsen during certain
seasons such as spring when trees are pol-
linating or summer when grass and weeds
are pollinating you may have a pollen
allergy.
Some symptoms of a pollen allergy are
congestion, sneezing, itching and irritated
throat, hoarseness, loss of voice, runny
nose, itchy nose, itchy and watery eyes,
swollen and red eyelids, fatigue, and dark
circles under the eyes which is caused by
increased blood flow near the sinuses.
