VOLUME 24/NUMBER 3


-By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING While Friday was
Bobby Brown Day, the 6-year-old
boarded an Amtrak passenger train
Saturday and headed for
Pennsylvania where he will fulfill his
dream to ride on a train pulled by
Thomas the Tank Engine.
During a recent Sebring City
Council meeting, Mayor George
Hensley proclaimed June 10 as
Bobby Brown Day. Hensley and
Bobby's father, Steven Brown, vol-
unteer with Sebring Firemen Inc.
Steven Brown, who lives in Lake
Placid, is an attorney in Sebring.
The opportunity for Bobby to meet
Thomas the Tank Engine comes from
the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Bobby has or had -acute lym-
phocytic leukemia.
Bobby is in remission now, but the
youngster has battled the disease off
and on since he was first diagnosed at
the age of 14 months.
His mother, Mary Brown, saidit,
all began with a high fever while the
family was on vacation in Georgia.
"We were at our hunting camp
when he came down with it and we -
figured it was an ear infection. But
after a couple of days we knew that it
was more," she remembered.

SEBRING "Volunteers do the lion's share
of the work," said Bill Nichols, Highlands
County emergency management director, at
Thursday's local American Red Cross Volunteer
Recognition dinner.
At any given time, Nichols can call on Red
Cross volunteers for drinking water for his fire
crews, to help get aid for a family displaced by


The family returned to Highlands
County where their local physician
did some tests and determined it was
leukemia.
Within three days the family was at
All Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg and little Bobby was
undergoing treatment.
"They put a mediport in and began
administering chemo," she said.
The youngster underwent the ther-
apy for two and a half years, then
went into remission at age 4.
"Everything just worked beautiful-
ly and we thought 'OK, this is it,
-everything is going to be fine," Mary
Brown remembered.
She described the recovery as
"textbook." But eight months later
during a follow-up examination it
was discovered that the malady had
returned.
"It came back showing leukemic
cells in the central nervous system,"
she said.
The second time around :-as not a'
easy as the first. ....
"Ii t\ as bad, we had one crisis after
another. There were blood infections.
he had allergic reactions, there was
* just one thing after another. We were
glad to survive that," she said.
The easiest part of the episode was
the fact that there is only one protocol


for treating children with leukemia.
"It's nice because it takes the pres-
sure off you as a parent about making
decisions. There's just one protocol,"
she said.
Mary Brown said Bobby's fascina-
tion with Thomas the Tank Engine
actually began with her oldest son,
Chris.
"When he was a little boy, PBS
had this program called Shining Time
Station and it featured Thomas the
Tank Engine. So we started getting
him the metal trains. So when Bobby
came along, he kind of inherited it.
So, I guess you courd say that Chris
actually started it," she said.
Because he was in chemotherapy,
Mary Brown said she and her hus-
band had to look for things their 14-
month-old son could do inside, quiet-
ly that didn't expend a lot of energy
and Thomas fit the bill.
"Since that time it's mushroomed
at our household," she said. "His bed-
room is a combination of Thomas
and Plavymobile .
For those who, don't know,
.Thomas the Tank Engine is a charac-
-ter created by Reverend Wilbert
Awdry and first published in 1945. In
1984, a television series was made

Saturday afternoon at the Sebring Train Depot.

4-H students




lose projects



to canker

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It appears that citrus canker has hit more than
just local commercial growers some local youth have lost
their fair projects to efforts to corral the citrus disease.
"Our 4-H Youth Citrus Tree Project got trees from the
Hickoty Branch Nursery," Highlands County 4-H advisor
Gregg Hartt said.
Canker was found at the nursery late last month as part of the
Florida Division of Plant Industry's ongoing
investigation in search of the agricultural mal-
ady.
"We have been tracking down all of the
plants that had left that nursery," Florida
Division of Plant Industry spokeswoman
Denise Feiber explained.
Even though there has been no positive find
among their resets, the youngsters subsequent- HARTT
ly have surrendered their potted murcots for
destruction to help prevent the spread of the disease.
All 60 trees now have been retrieved and destroyed.
"We also surveyed citrus trees in the area where those proj-
ects were located but we found nothing to indicate that there
was any canker spread by them," Feiber said.
Hartt said he now is trying to revitalize the tree project.
Although many of the youngsters were disappointed by the
turn of events, early response to the question has been positive
with everyone interested in starting again.
'The kids will pick up their trees, take them home, repot and
get started all over again. We were only a month into the proj-
ect so there's still plenty of time," he said.
When they start over, the youngsters probably will not get
murcots but another variety, such as Valencia. Hartt said a large

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center
announced Friday that it has
purchased a new iE33 cardiac
ultrasound system.
The system is one of only
five in the state and is the latest
advancement in ultrasound
technology. The system gives
patients and their healthcare
providers a three-dimensional
image that allows them to view
the beating heart as if they were
holding it in their hands.
"HRMC is pleased to be able
to provide this cutting-edge
technology for our patients and
the community we serve," said
Linda Harrison, HRMC's chief
executive officer. "Our cardiol-
ogists are outstanding and they
are now among only a handful
of cardiologists in the state who
have this incredible diagnostic
tool right at their fingertips."
HRMC purchased the new
system for nearly $300,000. It
will make ultrasound exams at
the hospital much faster, help
patients and their physicians
better visualize and understand
their condition. It also will
enhance diagnostic capability,
thus reducing or eliminating the
need for more expensive, inva-
sive tests and procedures, pro-
vide clearer ultrasound images,
guide catheters in 3D space
without ionizing radiation
exposure, and assist with pre-
surgical planning.
The iE33 system delivers the
latest breakthroughs in diagnos-.
tic capability and live 3D Echo

imaging. Automated image
optimization technologies and
on-board 2D and 3D cardiac
measurement functions will
make for quicker, less costly
,diagnosis and treatment of heart
disease.
"Ultrasound imaging is
amazingly beneficial because it
is a relatively low cost and non-
invasive way to look inside the
body," said Carol Boies, direc-
tor of diagnostic imaging at
HRMC. "With the new system,
we are acquiring an extremely
high level of diagnostic infor-
mation and can provide answers
for our patients more quickly
and easily. Plus, results from
the ultrasound exam often
reduce the need for more inva-
sive procedures."
The new iE33 system will
also provide care for pediatrics
patients. The pediatric probe
provides advanced testing of
patients as young as two hours
old. The special pediatrics
probe cost nearly $10,000.
The hospital was thinking not
only of their patients and physi-
cians when they purchased the
new ultrasound system but also
their technicians. The new sys-
tem's workflow features are
designed to be more ergonomic.
and therefore reduce the daily
physical strain on ultrasound
technicians. The iE33 is
referred to as an "intelligent"
system because it is designed to
adapt to the sonographer's
exam needs, making their job
faster, easier, and less physical-
ly taxing.

Jean Pustis (from left) of Philips Medical Systems explains the specialized features of the new iE33 ultra-
sound system to Highlands Regional Medical Center physicians Dr. Joan Siracuse and Dr. Jennifer
Bennett.


"The iE33 system is getting
rave reviews by our sonogra-
phers for its intelligent,
ergonomic interface," Boies
said. "Because of the high vol-
ume of exams and physical
nature of their work, sonogra-
phers can be affected by repeti-
tive motion strain or injury.
This machine is designed to
lessen the physical strain on our
technicians."
The iE33 system features an
adjustable, articulating .flat
screen LCD monitor that can be


positioned so that it can be
viewed from almost any direc-
tion.
This allows patients the abil-
ity to see images during scan-
ning, as well. The system can be
operated by intelligent voice-
command when the sonograph-
er is in tight quarters or needs
both hands for scanning. A
highly moveable control panel
increases the sonographers'
flexibility to work around the
patient.
Ultrasound has become one


of the most popular diagnostic
methods among both patients
and physicians because it can
be used in the most delicate
conditions without side effects.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency
sound waves to produce mov-
ing images of the body's inter-
nal soft tissue structures. It pro-
vides a safe, fast and painless
means of diagnostic imaging on
an outpatient basis.

Homeowners to get recap on hurricane preparation


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING If anyone
missed the Hurricane Expo on
Saturday, they can still learn
basic information to get ready
for this year's hurricane season.
At Monday's meeting of the
Highlands County
Homeowners Association Inc.,
Highlands County Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichol. will review hurricane
preparations,., ,-iergenc) shel-
ters, and common sense meas-
ures to get ready for the hurri-
cane season.
Nichols said he plans to give
a brief overview of the 2004
hurricane season. Then, he'll
talk about how to get ready for
this year. Preparations include
checking expiration dates on
food and water, trimming trees,
installing shutters, choosing a
shelter or a destination and
route to evacuate.
Nichols will talk about what


people should do during a hurri-
cane watch, warning, when it
hits and after it has left.
Standing water can be a prob-
lem, he said, especially when it
conceals holes or downed
power lines. Snakes, insects and
animals may come into houses
seeking dry ground.
During recovery, people
should be wary of unscrupulous
contractors, he said. He will
make suggestions oilh hi to
make the insurance proceok ea'_-
ier, as well. As with 2004, the
county will have places to get
food, water and ice, and a disas-
ter recovery center, if needed.
Monday's session will work
out well for Nichols, since he
wasn't able to attend Saturday's
expo.

Early rainy season
Typically, Nichols said, a
hurricane season has storms
forming early and late in the
season in the Gulf of Mexico


and in the
Caribbean Sea.

IDA/EDC asks county

for $11,000 for business

development staff


Unnamed
industry looking
to move to
Sebring Regional
By PHIL ATflNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING This year's
economic development budget
will be much the same as last
year, with one exception.
Louise England, executive
director for the Industrial
Development Authority and
Economic Development
Commission is asking for
$11,000 to help hire a *director
for a Small Business
Development Center.
England said the county has
the money set aside for this, but
it is not a part of her budget.
Right now, the county has the
services of such a center
through the Small Business
Development Center of the
Heartland, England said. Bob
Raymond, a business coun-
selor, works out of the business
development center, which
serves Highlands County as
well as DeSoto and Hardee
counties. The center can help
with financing, marketing and
advertising new businesses, as
well as starting up a business
from scratch, England said.
Part of the difficulty in bring-
ing in new business is needing
vacant industrial land or good
enterprise zones, England told
county officials during budget
workshops this year. It's hard to
get new businesses to utilize
old buildings, especially old
retail store locations. The coun-
ty could use one of them as a
business incubator, but aside
from that, new land is needed.
"We would like to fill all our


buildings," England said. "We
like to attract higher skill jobs,
so we don't just target retail."
Right now, England is hop-
ing to help the county create
125 new jobs by Sept. 30, 2005.
That may be if 300 jobs are on
their; way to the Sebring
Regional Airport if a Window
and door manufacturer locates
there. Because the company is
asking for. confidentiality, nei-
ther England nor Sebring
Airport Authority Executive
Director Mike Willingham can
comment on it at this time.
The county also tries to work
with the Avon Park Airport to
create industry, England said.
While Avon Park has the zon-
ing, it does not have enough
land for major projects, espe-
cially since airport buildings
have a height limit.
Another major concern for
business development is train-
ing people on how to make
their businesses better. That's
something the county should
continue to explore, said

Sebring firefighters stand beside a house at 4707 Sixth St., Sebring
Saturday afternoon just shortly after it reportedly exploded from a
gas leak inside the house. The occupant, Bill Roberts, was taken to
Highlands Regional Medical Center with minor burns, Sebring
police officers said.


One man injured when


Sebring home explodes


By JARRETT BAKER
News-Sun
SEBRING A Sebring
home was rocked by gas short-
ly after 4 p.m. Saturday, caus-
ing the upper portion of the
northern wall to bow out about
three feet.
Reportedly, the occupant of
the home, Bill Roberts, was
knocked to the floor when leak-
ing gas exploded.
Sebring resident Jim Perrine
noticed smoke drifting from the
home shortly thereafter, as he
was dropping his friend. John
Sorrow, off on Seventh Streei.
Perrine, who has rescued
people before, sensed some-
thing was wrong and went to
investigate. He found Roberts
inside the house, dazed and
lying on the ground.
"(He was) half passed out, it
scorched his hair," Perrine said.
"He was pretty lucky."
Perrine noticed the sofa was
burning from the explosion as
he helped Roberts out the door.
When Sebring firefighters
arrived, they entered the house
and attacked the flames.


According to radio traffic, the
fire was not very large, but the
explosion caused structural
damage.
Amy Brown, who lives
across the street from Roberts,
heard the explosion.
"I knew something blew up.
It was one h--- of a noise," she
said.
Her friend Fred Folger, a
retired photographer, was
working in the yard several
blocks away.
"I didn't hear a thing,"
Folger said, "but I heard the
vehicles and worried about my
friend (Brown). The vehicles
were coming down her street."
Neighbors say Roberts, who
is a war veteran, has lived in the
small wood-framed house for
many years.
He was transported to
Highlands Regional Medical
Center with minor burns,
Sebring police officers on scene
said.
An investigator from the
State Fire Marshal's office was
enroute to the scene.


Motorcycle rider injured, cited with improper passing


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
OKEECHOBEE A motor-
cycle rider heading east Friday
on State Road 70 had a wreck
after allegedly attempting to
pass in a no-passing zone.
Timothy Mulloy, 42, of
University Park, was taken to
Saint Mary's Medical Center in
West Palm Beach. His condi-
tion is serious.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports state Mulloy was on a
2000 Indian motorcycle at
10:30 a.m. about 1.5 miles east
of County Road 721 in


Highlands County. He started
passing other traffic that was
heading east on a bridge, but
once he got past the bridge, he
was in a no-passing zone, FHP
reports said.
He failed to notice that a
1992 Ford pickup, driven by
Demetrio Garcia, 39, of
LaBelle, had slowed to make a
left turn into a dirt road, and ran
into the driver's side of the
truck. Mulloy got thrown off
and landed in a ditch. The
motorcycle landed on the dirt
road.
After investigation, FHP


cited Mulloy for passing in a
no-passing zone.
Garcia pulled his truck onto
the dirt road, also. He had no
injuries and neither did his two
passengers 25-year-old Saul
Zalarius Aloustin or 45-year-


old Santos Sevartran Lopes,
both of LaBelle. But one of his
passengers, 35-year-old Gavino
Medina of LaBelle, had minor
injuries. All were wearing seat
belts.

Committee joins Love Bug Jubilee


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Another
organization has signed on to be
part of the Inaugural Love Bug
Jubilee with the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association. The
event is designed as part of the
monthly-Second Saturday Nite
Cruise on Sept. 10.
The Sebring Special Events
Committee has signed on to be
part of the first ever such event.
Organizers report it actually
might be the first one any-
where.
An Internet search has not
located anything similar to
what is being planned by the
Sebring Downtown Merchants
and Professional Association.
There already are a number
of events planned for the
Jubilee or LBJ as it has been
tagged.


In keeping with the cruise
theme, about a half dozen VW
clubs have been invited to come
in and participate in the month-
ly cruise.
A couple of the central and
south Florida VW clubs already
have responded and have
expressed interest in the idea
and there do not appear to be
any conflicting events in the
region,"
Justin Williams, who is the
cruise organizer, also plans to
solicit local residents who own
Volkswagens to come into town
for the bug fest.
Sebring Special Events
Committee members John
Meder and Jon Spiegel have
agreed to sponsor the trophies
for the VW gathering. The cate-
gories have yet to be deter-
mined.

orated" vehicle. That would the

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Residents in
Washington Heights still want
something done about the
Sebring Parkway.
The Rev. Robert Walker
showed up at Wednesday's
Community Traffic Safety
Team meeting to ask why the
proposals for Sebring Parkway
Phase 2 must cut off
Washington Heights at the CSX
Transportation railroad crossing
on Highlands Avenue and force
residents to detour onto East
Center Avenue to reach the
Parkway.
"The Parkway plans will cut
off the line to the black commu-
nity," he said. "Nobody seems
to be listening."
Members of the Community
Traffic Safety Team said they
have not been asked for an
opinion whether the road would
be safe and workable near East
Center Avenue, but team coor-
dinator Renee LaDue said it's
not common practice for the
Highlands County Engineering
Department to consult the traf-
fic safety team.
They have asked engineers to
bring copies of the plans to their
July 13 action item meeting for
a presentation and a question-
.and-answer session on neigh-
borhood concerns.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said the plans have been
available to all agencies from
the beginning of designing. He


said the county must meet state
standards for safety.
Safe walking
Residents have said they
would like a pedestrian over-
pass for school children, going
to Sebring Middle School.
Walker said the neighborhood
has students needing a direct
pedestrian connection to
Sebring High School and Fred
Wild Elementary School, both
along the Parkway route.
He worries that people who
need to reach Highlands
Regional Medical Center in an
emergency will get delayed on
Center Avenue.

"That's going to be congest-
ed," he said. "It's a small, nar-
row street."
Residents raised the same
concerns as early as 2000, when
engineers were drawing up
early plans for the Parkway.
The issues resurfaced on May
5, 2005, at a community meet-


ing in Washington Heights.
Overpass
In May, James Aaron of
Sebring asked if Washington
Heights would have a pedestri-
an overpass over the four-lane
Sebring Parkway. Cool said
pedestrians, especially children,
tend to avoid overpasses and
cross on the ground.
According to plans,
Highlands Avenue renamed
Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard will turn left onto
Sheriff's Tower Road before
the CSX railway crossing. The
Parkway will also turn left,
closing the crossing to vehicles
and pedestrians.
Fences would funnel walkers
to a crossing and traffic signal
at East Center Avenue, which
will be similar to Kenilworth
Drive, Cool said. There are
plans to widen East Center
Avenue at the intersection.
County Engineer Ramon
*Gavarrete said Thursday that
overpass costs are "hefty" -

Radio-controlled racing gets


permanent home in Avon Park


50 years of being a Lion


By PHIL ATrINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING County com-
missioners have given a final
go-ahead to the DeSoto City
Off-Road Remote Control club
for a permanent home in Avon
Park.
Now known as The DC Club,
it will have its new track adja-
cent to the Highlands BMX
track at the old Avon Park
Landfill.
Keith Lockett, president of
the racing club, said the county
and club members have the race
track about 70 percent finished.
Recent heavy rains have held
up the work, but most Saturday
afternoons will find members
working and playing at the new
facility. He hopes they will have
it done within a month.
Lockett looks forward to
having the track be the "best
one in central Florida."
Long road
The club has spent the last
three years trying to construct a
park for racing gasoline and
electric-powered radio-con-
trolled cars.


About three years ago,
Lockett and other members
petitioned the county for a loca-
tion for a track. In April 2003,
the county granted right-of-
entry to a public park in DeSoto
City, and the group built a track.
It was far enough from resi-
dences not to raise complaints.
However, more development
brought in neighbors who did-
n't want to hear the small gaso-
line-powered cars racing on
weekends.
The club also did not have
the resources to gate and secure
the site, so it drew loitering and
parked cars.
Lockett said in January 2005
that his members stopped hold-
ing events because neighbors
would call in complaints when-
ever anyone was at the park.
Sights on new site
In January this year,
Assistant County Administrator
Tom Portz suggested letting the
club use the old Avon Park
landfill. On Jan. 18, the county
commission approved the use
of the Avon Park land and
$7,000 of staff time and


resources.
In total, the county has
donated 140 hours -of equip-
ment operator time and 150
yards of shell, but has only
spent $4,181 actual dollars,
according to Sarah Hopton,
county public information offi-
cer. The landfill department and
the parks and recreation depart-
ment have both played major
roles in moving and recon-
structing the site.
Buying a counter
Now the club will need to
raise the necessary funds to pur-
chase a $3,000 lap counter -
needed to make Saturday racing
a reality. With 15 paid mem-


bers, at $50 per member, they
will need a lot more to cover the
cost of the counter.
"We're looking for mem-
bers," Lockett said.
The club is also looking for
corporate sponsors to buy
advertising space around the
track.
Once they get a lap counter,
the club plans to hold week-
night practices and Saturday
morning races. Until then,
members are allowed to prac-
tice on their own during track
hours of operation: Monday
through Friday, 5-8 p.m., and
on weekends, 10 a.m. until 8
p.m.

HEROES
Continued from 1A

ored some of those volunteers
Thursday evening: "Some of
you have gone the extra mile
this year."
Verdelle Medlin, a 68-year
volunteer, received Volunteer
of the Year, also called the
"Norman Ward Award." She
came in the day after the storms
and has been there ever since,
Harriman said, even retiring
from her regular job to volun-
teer full-time.
"First you have to get up,"
Medlin joked.
Ann Reinwand received
Office Volunteer of the Year,
now called the "Dottie Pope
Award." Pope was Harriman's
right hand, even though they
sometimes didn't get along.
The Sunday after Hurricane
Charley, Pope had a massive
heart attack and passed away.
Reinwand couldn't replace her,
but succeeded her very well,
Harriman said.
Shirley O'Toole, Disaster
Volunteer of the Year, manned
the first shelter the Red Cross
opened last year, and kept
working at shelters through
Hurricane Jeanne. Harriman
said she even helped at the dis-
aster recovery trucks.
Glenn Fowler received the
Volunteer in Health and Safety
Award. He has taught practical-
ly all of Harriman's health and
safety classes over the last'
three months, freeing up
Harriman to do other work.
Red & White Ball
Harriman thanked Melanie
Boulay, Kathi Jahnke, Vanessa
Logsdon, Darin and Kathy
MacNeill, Denise Mariani and
Jennifer Westergom for organ-
izing the 2004 Red & White
Ball. Logsdon and Kathy
MacNeill will co-chair the ball
for 2005.
Harriman also thanked:
Laura Anderson for her
time and mone\ contributions,
i. Ernie and Suc-K. -l ,'of
Sebring for riding around with.
him after Hurricane Charley to
lielp-witb reco_ eryv:-
Gingerlee Mitchelllindo
for her work as office volun-
teer;
Lisa Thomas with Jackson
Hewitt Tax Service for raising
$1,500 for the local Red Cross;
Henry Voss, for -Walker
Memorial Seventh-day
Adventist Church, because it
opened as a shelter after
Hurricane Jeanne; and
The News-Sun and
Highlands Today newspapers
for getting out information on
hurricane preparation and relief
services.
At the end, Harriman's vol-
unteers thanked him by pre-
senting him with a plaque con-
taining satellite photos of hurri-
canes Charley,, Frances and
Jeanne. His direct supervisor,
Tom Costello, executive direc-
tor of the Highlands/Polk
American Red Cross Chapter,
said people can help Harriman
by bringing in more volunteers
to help him and raising more
funds locally, which will stay
with the local service center.

Admission to the celebration

Prior to the fireworks, the
Highlands County Community
Concert band is scheduled to
perform a brief concert and a
moving performance, of "The
Star-spangled Banner", sung by
one of the finalists of the
Heartland Idol competition.
Several food and beverage


vendors already have commit-
ted to participating in the event,
but more are needed.
Additionally, organizers
report that local bands and
music ensembles wishing to
perform are welcome to sign up
as there are some slots avail-
able.
Those interested in either
selling food or performing at
this year's 4th of July festival
should contact the Greater
Sebring Chamber of Commerce

The chamber also will have
additional information on the

warned 'move over"


who does not move over, they
will then chase that person.
Lake Placid Police Chief Phil
Williams said any tickets will
be at the officers' discretion.
The enforcement is tentative-
ly scheduled for June 21 and
23, but those dates may change.
Florida Highway Patrol Sgt.
Wesley Daum said the busiest
part of the highway in
Highlands County is between
Sebring and Lake Placid.
"We have to'dodge cars," he
said. "Some (drivers) have driv-
.en off the road and struck
(troopers). It's a nationwide
problem "
"Law enforcement aencieis
plan on having one officer from
each municipal department, and
one from the Florida Highway


tial area of Highlands County.
He wanted to make certain any
homeowner does not bring any
infected leaves into the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center's office.
"It's very important that if a
homeowner suspects canker
that they don't bring me a leaf
in here," he said.
Instead, they should either
call the extension office or the
Avon Park Canker Eradication
Program.
Although he has not seen any
positive trees yet, Hartt said he
thought such a find is
"inevitable."


Patrol. Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton is decid-
ing whether to commit two offi-
cers to the project, one of whom
would act as coordinator.
Avon Park Police
Commander John Robinson
said it would be easier to handle
this enforcement on U.S. 27,
something Benton preferred for
office' safety.
Ever since July 1, 2002,
Florida motorists have been
required to move over one lane
from the lane closest to the
emergency vehicle or wrecker
when driving on an interstate
highl'b~a or other h.4lay with -
two or more lanes on that side
of the road, as required under
Florida Statutes 316.126.


Canker causes lesions on the
leaves, bark and fruit on the
trees. Hart described leaf
lesions as brown, watery spots.
"They are pretty uniform as
being round; they're not oblong
or jagged," he said. "The edges
are kind of wetted, with a
water-soaked area round the
lesion."
Basically, if the tree looks
like it has the measles, a call is
in order.
Whether that call is to the
Highlands County Extension
office or the Avon Park Canker
eradication program, it will be
state personnel who respond.

TOFFIN IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Dying to be

a lifeguard
Crawling on my stomach in
heavy firefighting gear was a
challenge. Heaving garbage
cans was tough, and roofing
wiped me out but it took
lifeguarding to almost kill me.
How ironic is that?
You see, every lifeguard at
the Avon Park High School
pool starts their day with a 500
yard swim, which has to be
done in less than 10 minutes.
That's 20 laps if you're count-
ing.
And they don't just swim
regular laps, these young
(because they have to be to
survive) first responders swim
with all kinds of difficult con-
ditions.
For example, they have to
swim some laps with their fists
closed, or their heads above
water (a delightfully deceptive
adventure in sadism they call
the "Tarzan" stroke. It requires
tremendous upper body
strength). Or they use the dol-
phin stroke, which means the
swimmer dives and touches
the bottom with each breath,
undulating down the lap. The
deeper the water, the harder it
is to hold your breath.
So picture this. I arrive at
the Avon Park High School
pool at 8 a.m.
Before they do anything
else, the lifeguards swim their
required 500 yards.
Well, of course, I was there
for the experience, so I get in

LIFEGUARDING


A job that's one part glamour, 10 parts grit


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Lifeguards
are glamorous, but they're often
in water over their heads.
Which is another way of say-
ing it takes effort and commit-
ment to become one.
That's because when emer-
gencies occur, the rescue is
complicated and often danger-
ous. Someone who is drowning
can have three to five times
their usual strength, and be in a
panic, thrashing about.
Lifeguarding is not for the
timid.
Or the out of shape. To be
able to handle the physical
aspects of the job, a lifeguard
has to be fit.
At Avon Park High School
swimming pool, Marsha May,
who is head of the summer pro-
gram and the new APHS, girl's
swimming coach, and Lindsay
Hickman, head lifeguard, run a
tight ship. Everyone swims 500
yards in under 10 minutes every
day.
But lifeguards need more
than toned muscle, each has to
complete a 50-hour American
Red Cross lifesaving course as
well. It is currently given only
once a year.
The course includes instruc-
tion in cardiopulmonary resus-
citation and first aid, as well as
intensive, in-water rescue train-
ing.
Then, because they are hired
by the school board to protect
people at school pools, the life-
guards have to be drug
screened, and fingerprinted by
the district.
Lifeguards have to be con-
stantly alert. During open pool
hours, they are responsible for.
up to 165 people at a time.
Maintaining a safe pool area is
their primary responsibility. It's


better to not need a rescue, than
carry one out.
Many lifeguards also train
with the Red Cross to become
swimming instructors and all
three high school pools in
Highlands County offer sum-
mer programs.
Christie Flowers and
Samantha Gornto, who both
graduated from Avon Park this
year, and. Jim Wood, who is
going into his junior year, assist
May in giving swimming les-
sons.
This work requires great
patience as many young chil-
dren are wary of water, or are


swimmers become comfortable,
so they can have fun and learn.
For example, one of the exer-
cises has toddlers jumping into
the water, caught by an instruc-
tor. Of course it's largely fun,
but it also makes children safer.
Should they fall into the water
accidentally, they'll be familiar
with the sensation, and know
how to recover.
"They're miracle workers,"
Larita Roth said of May and her
crew. Her children, Rori, 3, and
Noah, 2, are taking lessons.
"(The children) wouldn't go
near a pool, and now they're
splashing."

China native dishes up


authentic food at China One


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Sam Zhao, a native of China,
brings the real taste of Chinese cooking to
Highlands County.
He is the owner of the newly opened China
One Restaurant.
This place is sparkling clean and customers
can choose to eat in the private dining room -
which is great for small parties or birthdays or
they can order take out or request special cater-
ing.
Chicken chow mein, boneless spare ribs,
General Tso's chicken, and the sesame chicken
are the most popular favorites of the $4.50
lunchtime specials. These come with pork-fried
rice and a choice of wonton, egg drop or hot and
sour soup.
There are a wide variety of offerings and items
can be ordered in small or large portions, depend-
ing on the customer's appetite. The special com-
bination plates start at $6.25. There's even a
healthy dish menu containing lots of choices,
which are served with special diet sauce.
"We like the Sebring area. The air is clean, the


lakes are relaxing, and the people are so civilized.
Our food is done in a different way, a different
style. And we're especially known for our sauces,
which everyone says are tastier. I hope anyone
liking Chinese food will try us for a most pleas-
ant surprise," Zhao said.
The chef's specialties range in price from
$7.95 to $9.95. There's the Happy Family choice,
with an exotic combination of lobster, shrimp,
beef, chicken, roast pork and mixed vegetables in
a brown sauce. Or there's the beef and shrimp
Hunan style; orange chicken or beef; and
Mongolian style triple delight to name a few.
"A lot of people work nearby or do shopping
and eat here. Then there are others who call for
takeout as they get off work and head home,"
cashier Steven Chen said.
China One is at 3218 U.S. 27 South, in the
Kash N' Karry shopping plaza. It is open seven
days a week. The hours are from 11 a.m. to 10
p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 10:30
p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 12-10 p.m.
Sunday. For more details or to place a takeout
order, call 314-8889.


LIFEGUARD

the water and start swimming too.
Now on the one hand, I've always loved the
water, and know my way around it.
But on the other hand, I haven't done any real
swimming for years.
It turns out I'm not quite the swimmer I used
to be.
For example, by the time I had completed my
first lap, having swum full out, using what in
my day was called the Australian Crawl -
although I wasn't actually going all that fast
because everyone else managed at least two laps
to my one I knew without a doubt there was
no way I could crawl back.
Or, more accurately, if I crawled back it
would be on my hands and knees up on the con-
crete.
I chose a face saving alternative and breast
stroked my way, old lady like, back and even
then had to rest.
After that, I only managed another four laps
(two of them show off my backstrokes) before
having to call it quits.
Here's the danger of exercising in water. It's
refreshing, and you don't sweat. So it's easy to
over do.
And, brother, I overdid it.
By the time I got out of the water, after about
10 minutes of exercise, my arms hung like wet
noodles, my hands and knees shook, and I
gasped for air.
In fact, most of today's column and story are
based on memory, not notes, because I had trou-
ble holding the pen, never mind writing with it.
I'm not kidding.
When I got home at 2 p.m., I crashed for a
two hour nap. Later that same night, I was back
in bed asleep by 9, and still dragged the day
after. I don't think I've ever been so tired.
What floored me was the energy of the life-
guard crew.
They didn't just lap me over and over and
over they went on to teach two hours of les-
sons, and then executed an hour of rescue drills.
Drills where they were diving, lifting, pulling
and pushing in water over their heads. I did-
n't even see them breath hard, which is a good
thing, because that was just the first half of their
day.
There was a second exercise we did. It sounds
easy, but guess again. The object is to tread
water for two minutes while holding a 10 pound
brick of hard rubber. You have to hold it up high
under your chin, and if your chin hits the water,
you have to start all over again.
I was advised to tilt back and look at the sky.
So I did, but not for long.

t.--

It taking a look at these instruments of torture,
only the kickboard (left) is user friendly. The hand
paddles (right) require tremendous upper body
strength to push through the water. The official
diving brick (center) weighs 10 pounds and is used
in a two minute floating, pass or drown, exercise.

Soon I was having to kick harder and harder.
My chin didn't just touch the surface, it plowed
under so I was spouting like a hump-backed
whale, spending more and more energy just
staying afloat, driving myself deeper into the
pool because of my violent leg action.
Just a few feet away, Marsha May, the new
swimming coach at the school and head of the
summer swim program, bobbed serenely in
place, barely moving, keeping her hair dry.
Meanwhile, I'm starting to cheat, holding the
brick with only one hand and flapping the water
frantically with the other. Thirty seconds go by,
then 40 and 45. It seems an hour has passed.
Then, to my horror, "One more minute,"
someone calls out.
One minute more? have to give in and splash
to the side.
But here's a lesson for life.
Like an idiot, at the end, I clung to that brick
even when I couldn't hold it up and it had begun
to pull me under. So remember, if you're ever
holding onto to something that's sinking let
go.

particular attention being made
to installment sales of lots. The
inquiry resulted in the passage
of the Florida Installment Land
Sales Act and the establishment
of the Florida Installment Land


Sales Board. The _
board established
guidelines and
requirements for _
developers to abide
by when selling lots
to out-of-state buy-
ers.
Florida's new
guidelines required
developers to pro- CON

ances that lot buyers -
would receive mar-
ketable title to land. It also
demanded that buyers be
assured promised land improve-
ments would be completed. By
1964, all developers were
required to provide the FILSB
and prospective buyers with a
detailed property report
describing the land under con-
sideration.
Today land developers must
abide by state and federal laws
and there are severe penalties if
they fail to do so. However, the
rules and regulations don't
specifically cover private lot
sales by individuals.
This means you are on your
own if you buy a lot in a private
deal. It is your responsibility to
thoroughly investigate the prop-

erty. Like buying a
car, you should "kick
the tires and take a
S. test drive" before
T writing a check.
For example, you
should visit the prop-
erty. Drive to it and
k walk on it. If the lot is
in Florida go during
SUMER the summer rainy sea-
REACH son and see how
much water is
ark retained. Is the prop-
hosian erty truly a slice of
- Florida paradise or a
mosquito ridden lot in
a murky swamp? How close is
the lot really to those "beautiful,
sun baked beaches" the promot-
er told you about?
Even if the land passes your
visual inspection there are other
important considerations. Can
you build on it? Are there deed
restrictions? Is the land as valu-
able as you thought? What are
the property taxes? How much
are adjacent lots selling for?
Are there roads leading to the
lot? Who owns and maintains
them? Can you get electricity,
city sewer, water?
Legal issues also will arise.
Buying land typically involves
a property appraisal, mortgage,
deed, escrowed funds and other
legal issues that can become


sticky or confusing. That's
where a good attorney or real
estate expert comes' in. A pro-'
fessional can assure that the
deal goes smoothly.
Finally, as a closing remark, I
strongly suggest that you don't
buy a lot or any other parcel of
land over the Internet. While
Florida hucksters solicit out-of-
state buyers, there are plenty of
hucksters soliciting Floridians
to buy property in destinations
like Costa Rica, Arkansas,
North Carolina and other exot-
ic locations that sound appeal-
ing when you are searching for
your own .little piece of para-
dise.

Red Cross recognizes local citizens, volunteers


Three recognized
for providing
emergency help
By PHIL AT!1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The local
American Red Cross recog-
nized three people Thursday for
stopping and rendering emer-
gency help when it was needed.
One case was on the road.
Another was'at the Highlands
County Courthouse.
Each one received a certifi-
cate of "Exemplary Personal
Action."
In February, Emily
Williamson, her husband Scott,
and their friend Dave Laws
were traveling in Lake Wales
when they saw an overturned
truck on U.S. 27. Emily and
Dave jumped right out while
Scott waited by the car to run
them a first aid kit, if needed.
"We always stop at wrecks,"
Emily Williamson said.
A lady in the truck had been
thrown out. Emily Williamson
immediately held the woman's
head and neck still, while Laws
took her information and Scott
Williamson called 911 on their
cellular phone. He brought the
phone to his wife, but she had
to hold the call several times tb
keep the woman from moving.
When Emergency Medical
Services arrived, she then
helped them set up a landing
zone for LifeFlight helicopter.
The punch line to the story is
that Emily Williamson was
wearing a cervical neck brace
collar while doing all of this.
She had dislocated her neck the
week before, had gone to the
emergency room and was flown
to Tampa General Hospital for

when they saw an overturned truck on U.S. 27. She and Laws
rushed to help. Emily held the driver's neck still while waiting for
Emergency Medical Services. Coincidentally, she was wearing a cer-
vical neck brace herself from an injury the previous week. She and
Laws were recognized Thursday by the local American Red Cross
Service Center for 'Exemplary Personal Action.'

No investor is immune to the market's ups and
downs. In return for the possibility of reward, you
generally have to accept some risk... right?
While variable annuities can eliminate risk or
market volatility, they can provide lifetime
income options, death benefits to protect
your beneficiaries and living benefits to
protect you.
To learn more about the protection
features variable annuities offer to

OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE is hereby given that the School Board
of Highlans8 County is developing an Rule
2.82, Repoting-Child Abuse.The Bdiard ill
disciuss/aplJrove future plans to develop ihe
rule 'at a -regular meeting of tne Board on -

this notice, a rule development workshop will
be noticed in a local newspaper. The request
must be submitted to Wally Cox, Superintend-
ent, 426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870.
The purpose and effect of the proposed new
rule is to set forth guidelines for lReporting
Child Abuse in accordance with requirements
set forth in recent Florida legislation. A sum-
mary of the proposed rule or amendment is as
follows: Definitions: Child Abuse any wilful
or threatened act that results in any physical,
mental or sexual injury or harm that causes,
or is likely to cause the child's physical, men-
tal, or emotional health to be significantly im-
paired. Abuse of a child includes acts or omis-
sions. Corporal discipline of a child by a pa-
rent or legal custodian for disciplinary purpos-
es does not in itself constitute abuse when it
does not result in harm to the child. Abandon-
ment a situation in which the parent or legal
custodian of a child, or in absence of the pa-
rent or legal-custodian, the caregiver respon-
sible for the child's welfare, while being able,
makes no provision for the child's support
and makes no effort to communicate with the
child, which situation is sufficient to evince a
willful rejection of parental obligations. Ne-
glect occurs when a child is deprived of or is
allowed to be deprived of, necessary food,
clothing, shelter or medical treatment or a
child is permitted to live in an environment
when such deprivation or environment causes
the child's physical, mental, or emotional
health to be significantly impaired. The fore-
going circumstances shall not be considered
neglect if caused primarily by financial inabili-
ty, unless actual services for relief have been
offered and rejected. A parent or legal custodi-
an legitimately practicing religious beliefs in
accordance with a recognized church or reli-
gious organization who thereby does not pro-
vide specific medical treatment for a child
shall not, for that reason alone, be considered
a negligent parent or legal custodian. The
School Board prohibits any action or omission
constituting child abuse, neglect, or abandon-
ment by any of its employees, agents, volun-
teers, or by other persons affiliated in any way
with the School District. Further, all employ-
ees, agents, and volunteers of the School Dis-
trict must comply with Florida law requiring
reporting of child abuse, neglect, or abandon-
ment. Florida Statute requires that any person,
including school teachers or other school offi-
cial or personnel, who knows, or has reasona-
ble cause to suspect, that a child is abused,
abandoned, or neglected by a parent, legal
custodian, caregiver, or other person respon-
sible for the child's welfare, shall report such
knowledge or suspicion to the Department of
Children and Family Services. Each report of
known or suspected child abuse, abandon-
ment or neglect shall be made immediately to
the Department of Children and Family Serv-
ices' abuse hotline, on the single statewide
toll-free telephone number. The teacher or
staff member may also contact the principal, a
school designee, district office or support per-
son to let them know the case has been re-
ported, and for their own documentation and
protection file a District County Schools Inci-
dent Referral Report. School teachers or oth-
er school official or personnel will be required
to provide their names to hotline staff, but
such names shall be held confidential. The
extent of confidentiality of the reporter's
name, with respect to the Department's re-
cords, is governed by Florida Statute. If a
complaint is made against a School District
Employee, Volunteer or Agent or other per-
sonal affiliated with the School District which,
if true, would constitute child abuse, neglect
or abandonment by that person, that com-
plaint shall be immediately forwarded to the
Superintendent. The Superintendent shall for-
ward the complaint'to the Department of Chil-
dren and Family Services for Investigation as

The one regret is troubling in a troubled life


By the time you
read this, Robert Lee LAURA
McConnell will proba-
bly be dead, executed
by lethal injection in Laur
Reno, Nevada. While
anything is possible when it
comes to Death Row,
McConnell has not filed any
appeals or motions to delay his
death, scheduled to take place
on June 9. He seems quite ready
to die. This is not what I find
disturbing.
McConnell, 33, is being exe-
cuted for shooting a man nine
or 10 times in August 2002.
The crime took place in a home
the victim shared with an ex-
girlfriend of McConnell. After
he killed the man, McConnell
waited for the woman to come
home. He then raped her and
forced her to drive him to
California. While I find this dis-
turbing in the way I find most
violent crime disturbing, this is
also not what is causing this
story to trouble me.
What is really causing me
pause is an interview that


'S LOOK
a Ware


McConnell gave early
last week. Apparently
he told the Reno
Gazette-Journal that
he had only one regret
on what could be the


last week of his life: that he
didn't kill his ex-girlfriend
when he had the chance.
He had apparently planned to
kill her but had second thoughts
when he had her in his clutches.
He said that he wouldn't let his
feelings get in the way if he
could go back. He would tor-
ture her, then kill her. She
would not get away as she did
in California.
It is this statement and atti-
tude that has caused this story
to haunt me. I find myself turn-
ing it over in my head, wonder-
ing how a human being could
come to the place that
McConnell is apparently in as
he awaits his death.
1 keep going back to a line
from the song "My Way:"
"Regrets. I've had a few." Here
is a guy who knows he is prob-
ably going to die. He has a


chance to reflect on the 33 years
he has spent on the planet. What
does he come up with?
Does he express regret that
he took the life of a young man?.
Regret at the nightmare he put a
woman he claimed to love
through? The grief his victim's
parents and family probably
feel still, does that give him
pause? The pain of his own
family, having to deal with what
he did and that he is going to
pay for it with his life, does it
occur to him to express sorrow
for that?
None of that. He only is sorry
that he didn't do worse, and
perhaps that in' not doing so he
got caught.
Perhaps my naivete is show-
ing. Maybe this is not an
uncommon attitude among
murderers. McConnell's actions
show a man who is concerned
only with himself in 2001 he
was arrested on suspicion of
violating a temporary protec-
tion order his ex-girlfriend had
in place. Later he was fired


from his job, and in his eyes the
loss of his job wasn't his fault,
it was his ex and her boyfriend
who were to blame. Certainly
not the attitude of someone who
thinks of others ahead of him-
self.
I believe he is going to face
another judgment after he dies.
One that will examine his
whole life. One that will exam-
ine his heart. And there perhaps
he will find he regrets a whole
lot more than not taking anoth-
er life. By then though, any
regrets will come too late for
him to change what he has done
to others.
I hope before he lay on a
table in Reno with an IV in his
arm waiting to die he did find a
way to change his heart. Not
just for those left behind for
his eternity.

What do you think about
the identity of 'Deep Throat,'
a national secret until this
week, being revealed?


'College presidents, provosts and deans act as if

they have discovered a constitutional right for

students not to be offended.'
NAT HENTOFF, columnist, author, 2003


I'm glad his identity has been
given out. I believe he compro-
mised the nation as a rat. He
should have talked to President
Nixon first. Who did he think he
was? The president? He was the
second man in the FBI. Where
was this man's loyalty? Not to his
country or the president.

The best time of my life


It was our 13th day
aboard the U.S.S.
General Blatchford.
The war in Europe
was over and we
were headed back to
the States on delay en
route to the South
Pacific. A distur-
bance ... a commo-
tion happened on
board. All about me,
GIs were running to
the top deck by the
hundreds!
Of course, I ran up

there too! There, ahead of us, as
the bow of the ship went up and
down, could be seen on the hori-
zon, a faint gray outline with
points rising from it. As we
moved closer, that outline
became more defined. I could
barely make it out.
"It is!" I hollered. "It is!" Then
everybody let out their startling
expressions like: "It's New York!
It's New York!"
As we moved closer, we could
see a lot of activity in the harbor.
The nearer we got, the clearer the
outline of the Empire State and
the Chrysler buildings became. It
was the familiar Manhattan sky-
line.
All around us were all kinds of
water craft ... large and small. We
knew that there would be a wel-
coming committee awaiting us,
but we never imagined anything
near what we were seeing. Then
it dawned upon us: The Ninety-
fifth, our outfit was the first con-
tingent to return home, on a
delay en route to the South
Pacific. The first as a unit!
Tug boats were circling
around us. Fire boats aiming
their hoses in every direction.


Spraying water in
steady streams. Horns,
whistles and sirens
screaming, including
those of our ship and
others in the harbor. The
noise was deafening.
People in small boats
streaming up and down
New York Harbor.
Cheering! Screaming!
The deck of our ship
was crammed full of
GIs trying to peer over
the heads of guys in
front of them ... wanting


to see what was out there!
As long as I live, I'll never for-
get that day. Two tug boats
steered our ship through the har-
bor and alongside the dock to a
standstill. Throughout all of that,
the crowd continued with their
hollering and screaming.
We were ordered to get our
gear and form ranks. It sure did
not take long for us to do that ...
believe me!
Our Company was lucky. We
would be the first to disembark:
The gang-plank was set in place
and if we thought the noise was
loud before, we had a surprise
coming. The instant the first GI
stepped on that gang-plank, all
hell broke loose! The screaming
increased a thousand-fold.
We saw trucks waiting on the
dock for us as soon as we could
get ashore, but getting to them
was another matter ... entirely.
The crowd was being restrained
at a roped off area. As we went
down the gangway, they broke
loose! Girls ran out and
embraced every GI they could
get their hands on. Kisses flowed
like wine! What an ovation!
The process of loading the


truck proved to be very slow.
M.P.s and policemen alike had
all they could do to control the
* crowd. As soon as the lead truck
was loaded, it moved out. Then
another one moved into its place.
But trying to load onto those
trucks was a slight problem. The
'crowd consisted mostly of girls
that had broken forward and
began hugging and kissing every
G.I. they could get their hands
on! Most were smiling and yet,
there were some that were cry-
ing. I'll bet I was hugged and
kissed by at least 25-30 girls
before I made it to a truck.
After I climbed onto the rear
of it, I looked back and the one,
same girl that had been kissing
me the most was hugging anoth-
er G.I. As we pulled away, I
looked up at the General
Blatchford. There were yet,
many G.I.s aboard and I .knew
that those activities would be
going on ... for some time.
There must have been enough
tears shed that day to overflow
the Hudson River ... or a barrel
anyway.
Yes, I would consider that as
one of the best times in my life. I
say one of, because there is still
another one. A more important
time that I can never forget.
It was Memorial Day and I
had re-enlisted. However I was
having medical problems. I was
cooped up in the hospital at Fort
George G. Meade, Md., because
one of my war wounds was giv-
ing me trouble. A group of young
ladies from Glen Burnie had
come to visit all the G.I. patients.
When they came into our
room, they spread out toward all
the patients. One of them, a real
pretty blonde, came to my bed


and spoke with me. It had been
the first time after joining that
group that she experienced such
a visit.
We spoke for such a long time,
it seemed, before they left.
However, they came back the
next day and I was fascinated
that, when one of the other girls
walked over to my bed, the girl
that had visited me the day
before asked that she be there
instead.
We talked again for a long
time. I learned that her name was
Dorothy Brown and that she
would turn 17 in a few short
days. And it was funny that my
birthday was two days after hers
and I would turn 20.
I was released from the hospi-
tal on her birthday and had no
problem getting a pass as it hap-
pened to be on a Sunday. I bor-
rowed my commanding officer's
convertible (although he was my
commanding officer, we were the
best of friends) and drove to
Glen Burnie and of course, locat-
ed Dorothy's living address. I
wanted to be there on her birth-
day. I met her parents then. They
were nice folks.
We saw each other often dur-
ing that short time and fell madly
in love with each other ... to the
point where we wanted to get
married. We did, exactly six
weeks after we met. Yes, that was
the other best time of my life and
we have had a wonderful rela-
tionship ever since. In a few
short weeks we will be celebrat-
ing our 59th wedding anniver-
sary.

Love of a veteran was

start of Father's Day
A daughter's love for her father, a
Civil War veteran, made it possible for
us to celebrate Father's Day in America.
Sonora Dodd got the inspiration of
having a special day for fathers as a trib-
ute to her father, William Smart, while .
listening to a Mother's Day sermon in
1903.
Smart, a Civil War veteran, lived in
Spokane, Wash. He lost his wife during
childbirth of their sixth child. Widowed POINTS TO
and alone, Mr. Smart managed to bury
his wife, raised an infant and five other PONDER
children by himself.
When Sonora became an adult she PAULINE Au YANG
realized the dedication shown, the love
and selflessness her father, a single parent, had given her and
her five siblings. She thought him worthy of honor.
Sonora wrote in a journal that it was her father who made
all the parental decisions and sacrifices with courage. She
decided to celebrate her father with a special tribute in June,
the month her father was born.
The first Father's Day celebration was June 19, 1910, in
Spokane. Then in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge voiced
his support of a national Father's Day.
President Lyndon Johnson proclaimed Father's Day to be
a national holiday on the third Sunday of June in 1966.
Father's Day was signed into law in 1972 by President
Nixon.
Speaking about fathers, some famous people said, "I
watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work
15 and 16 hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the
bottom of his feet. A man who came here uneducated, alone,
unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to
know about a father, and worked hard by the simple elo-
quence of his example." Mario Cuomo, former governor of
New York.
"Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices
call his father." Lydia Child.
"My father is father of all people, and he lives in heaven.
I may not see him, but I feel his presence." Desiree
Williams, age 10.
Father's Day is the fifth most popular card sending holiday
with an estimated $95 million in card sales. Cards are being
sent not just to fathers, but husbands, grandfathers, uncles,
sons, sons-in-law and pastors.

Avon Park's Esquilin signs with Webber


BY CHUCK MYRON

Fishing

Plastic worm

goes back a

long way
If you could only take one
bait when you went bass fish-
ing, what would you choose?
Would it be a top-water plug, a
shallow-running bait or maybe
a spinnerbait? Or would it be a
plastic worm? You would be in
good company if you chose
the worm because it has won
.more bass tournaments than
any other bait since B.A.S.S.
began holding such tourna-
ments back in 1967.
The plastic worm is a bait
that can be fished in any depth
of water, can be worked in and
through the heaviest cover and
at any speed necessary to pro-
voke a strike. They come in
hundreds of colors, giving
them the charm to coax a bass
through clear, murky or even
tannic-stained waters.
It may surprise you that the
first plastic worm type bait
was patented in 1877. But it
was a stiff rubber product that.
didn't rely catch on, Ih b. -a
nearly 75 )ears later ihait tLhe
first plastic worm was market-
ed.
In the years following
World War II, a very enthusi-
astic angler by the name of
Nick Creme began experi-
menting with different mix-
tures of
vinyls.
Working
from his
home in
Ohio,
6.eCreme
made
some
l molds of
OUTDOORS live night
crawlers.
Lloyd Jones He melted
the vinyl .
in cooking
pots on the kitchen stove and
then carried the pots to the
basement workshop where he
poured it into his original
molds.
He decided to enhance his
home-produced worms by
adding cheese and ground up
dried night crawlers. Nick's
Wiggle Worm was first avail-
able in 1951 and became an
almost instant success. The
demand exceeded production.
The original Wiggle Worm is
still available under the name
Scoundrel.
Creme moved his operation
to Tyler, Texas in the 1960s.
During this era, a lot of entre-
preneurs were attempting to
make all kinds of baits using
plastics, but it took a bass fish-
erman from Lake Eufaula,
Ala., named Tom Mann, to
really improve on the plastic
worm in 1967.
Tom made a new, softer
type of bait he called the Jelly
Worm. His new worm com-
bined scent and translucent
colors that blended right into
the plastic. Tom had something
new and very desirable as
anglers all over the country
stocked their tackle boxes with
his creation.
The Curly Tail worm came
along in the early 1970s. The
Mister Twister company start-
ed producing a worm with a
curled tail and its action in the
water proved to be what
anglers wanted.
Soon, many different sizes
and styles of plastic worms
were bursting onto the market.

and that exposure led her to signing
Friday to play for the Warriors.
"We're looking for girls that we can
develop. We've got a lot of nice things
said about her attitude," current Webber
head coach Sam Gjurich said. "We feel
winning is in the person. She's got that
will. We'll bring her along to the top of,
her ability."


Esquilin said that along with the abili-
ty to continue to play, the school's sports
management program and the fact that
it's close to home played into her deci-
sion. That fits right in with Gjurich's
desire to reach out to local talent.
"What we're also trying to do is devel-
op more of a relationship with the local

Hoops players


Shonee their skI z


in Lake Placid


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID The
"starz" of tomorrow are learn-
ing their "skilz" today.
Hoopskilz Academy, a
series of basketball clinics in
Lake Placid run by former
high school coach Mike Lee,
has just completed its eighth
annual boys summer camp
and is gearing up for the com-
panion' girls camp later this
month.
"The purpose of the whole
thing is to teach them how to
play basketball and to teach
them the fundamentals of bas-
ketball and to do that in a lot
of different ways with a lot of
different drills and activities,"
said Lee, who melds a variety
of drills and activities into an
upbeat atmosphere.
"Along with the skills that
we're teaching them we're
also trying to talk to ,them
about competing and compet-
ing the right way," Lee added.
"It's OK to play hard, if's OK
not to like to lose, but if
somebody beats you, then
they deserve that respect."


The Hoopskilz Academy
summer camps are open to all
children age 9-15, regardless
of basketball aptitude. That
gives Lee and his assistants
the challenge of working with
kids who don't yet know how
to shoot at the same time as
they grooms polished athletes
who have been playing for
years.
"We will split up in groups
and try to tailor what we teach
them to the skill level that
they're at," he said.
In addition, there are fit-
ness drills and speakers that
address the entire camp at
once. This past week, Lee has
brought in track athlete
Christie Bobo to conduct
agility drills, and during the
girls camp he will welcome
University of Central Florida
assistant athletic director Gert
Garman.
Still, campers won't have
much chance to simply be
passive listeners, as Lee
makes sure the pace is fast.

CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Avon Park's Yini Esquilin (seated) signed Friday to continue her tennis career at Webber International
University. Pictured, standing from left, are Webber head coach Sam Gjurich, Avon Park athletic direc-
tor Mort Jackson, her father Mario Esquilin, her mother Nilda Esquilin and her grandmother, also
named Nilda Esquilin.

community," he said. "She's got
good academics, and then with
the tennis, her work ethic, that's
what we're looking for."
"I'd like to get better, learn
more things, be more competi-
tive and meet new people,"
Esquilin said.
Gjurich said he'll be working
with her on placement of


serves, depth of shots and accu-
racy, and wants to see her get
after the ball.
"Personally, I like girls that
are aggressive, that aren't afraid
to go the net, things like that,"
he said.
Esquilin also knows when to
let the shot develop.
"I understand that's one of
her good attributes, that she is
patient and will wait for the
opportunities, and we'll try to
teach her the opportunities," he


said.
Yet the key to picking up
style and technique, Gjurich
emphasized, is the willingness
to learn it.
"My personal thing is, I want
girls who want to win, but I
don't evaluate them that way,"
he said. I evaluate them on
coming to practice on time,
working while they're at prac-
tice, and.. a good attitude.
Winning will take care of itself
then."

WORM
Continued from 1E
Before long, it seemed everybody was making
their own version of plastic worms. There were
fire-tail worms, scented worms and worms with
sparkles. It seemed there was no end to what
they could do with the plastic worm. There are
now at least 75 to 100 makers of this popular
lure.
Anglers have come up with many different
ways to fish the worm. The Texas rig was
maybe one of the earliest and, along with the
Carolina rig, is popular all over the country.
Successful anglers everywhere use either or both
of these rigs.
One idea that started in Japan is called drop
shooting. Unlike the Texas or Carolina rig, drop
shooting lets the bait hover just above the weeds
or other cover. When bass are suspended over a
bare bottom, the lure can be adjusted to the
height at which the bass are located.
Drop shooting can work anytime of the year.
If an angler is new to drop shooting, summer is
the best time to learn something about it. Clear-


Out of the pool


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Robert Romero, who'll enter Lake Placid Middle School as a
sixth grader in the fall, takes a breather from swim lessons con-
ducted by the Safe and Smart Summer School Program at the
Lake Placid High School pool. The grant-funded course, going
on now through June 17, is geared toward helping sixth-
through eighth-graders.


water lakes with deeper waters such as Lake
Jackson, Lake Placid or Lake June would be
ideal for first attempts with this method. A depth
finder is needed to locate suspended bass.
First, tie a 1/16- to 1/4-ounce weight onto a
minimum 8- to 10-pound line. Move up the line
the same distance the bass are above the bottom
and tie on a small, short-shank No. 2 or No. 4
bait-holder style hook with a Palomar knot. This
knot will allow for adjusting the depth of the
bait. Be sure the hook has the point side up.
Dropping the line to the bottom, the bait
should be right at the depth of the fish. Keep the
lure at this,depth by keeping very little tension
on the line. The sinker needs to rest on the bot-
tom. This rig keeps the lure right in front of the
bass. You can shake the line or even jig it up
and down to give the bait a little action.
At times it is a lot like using a jigging spoon.
Your bait is swimming above the bottom right
with the bass you are after. This is a great new
method that can be used anytime before, during
or after the spawn.

HOOPS

kids that we have, you don't
want to have them sitting for
too long," Lee said. "So we
always try to have different
activities, and we switch activi-
ties every 20 minutes or so,
usually, just to keep them
focused and keep them where
they're balanced in different
ways."
The turnout for the boys
camp was 46 kids, an ideal
number to maintain that quick
rhythm, Lee said. It also fits the
amount of T-shirts, equipment
and other prizes given away in
camp contests and competi-
tions.
"It's a lot of fun. We've
made some good friendships
and they spend a lot of time
laughing, and make some great
memories," Lee said, "and on
top of that they're playing bas-
ketball and being active and
learning."
The girls camp will run from
8 a.m.-4 p.m. June 20-24. The
cost is $65.
