wants its



own manager

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING After 90 days working with Severn Trent
Services Inc. and Bill Neron as general manager, the board of
supervisors at Sun 'N Lake of Sebring Improvement District
wants to have its own general manager.
At a meeting Wednesday, they said they aren't too happy
with the contract company's management of the district, citing
a lack of financial information and loss of staff over the last
three months, including the chief financial officer. Supervisor
Charles McHale said a few dedicated employees have held the
district together.
Severn Trent had proposed creating a "district administra-
tor" to work as liaison to the board of supervisors and contract
administrator for the Severn Trent agreement. Supervisors
turned that down, saying it was making the matter too compli-
cated. They preferred having their own general manager to
oversee the contract with the

company.
Edward Goscicki, vice-
president of Severn Trent
Services Inc., told the News-'
Sun that his company will
probably redefine Neron's
job as needed once a new
general manager is found,
but he would still be chief
executive on the company
side.
Over the last three months,
Severn Trent has worked to
upgrade the financial soft-
ware and filing systems,
rebuild'the financial history
of: the district, and manage
staff to have all of the servic-


es covered. It has cost less than the district would pay for doing
it in-house, he said, and-Severn Trent has set caps on some of
the costs.
Sull if the district wants its own general manager, Goscicki
said he is fine with that: "We can work either way."
Supervisor Larry Bertetto, said the district needs to give
Severn Trent more time to get things in order. He was always
the bad guy when he walked into a new job as manager,
whether he made changes or not, he said.
Residents said the contract gives Severn Trent far too much
control, handling district management, administration and
financial and records management. An amendment to the con-
tract would have had the company taking care of roads,
drainage, parks, recreation, fire service, security, and code
enforcement, but supervisors turned that down.
Some residents have said Severn Trent should be removed.
Bill Jackson, resident, likened the company to Superman "fly-

By PHIL ATTINGER

SEBRING One of the
biggest problems for disabled
people who can work and want
to work is getting there.
They may be employable,
but if they don't have a car, or
access to one, they won't get to
work. That's something to fix,
said Brian Braddock, area
supervisor for the employment
services division of Helping
People Succeed.
Robert Talley, a former
client who made news advocat-
ing for a transportation system,
is a "very capable guy,"
Braddock said. He agrees that
transportation is a top issue.
Transportation Disadvant-
aged services are available
locally each weekday from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., but not on nights
or weekends when some clients
have to work. Medical trips are
given priority, Braddock said.

Vocational education


grows up at SFCC


* First in a series on the 40th
anniversary of the opening of
South Florida Community
College.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Forty
years ago this July the Florida
legislature authorized the
establishment of South
Florida Community College.
Its first campus opened on
Main Street in 1966, in tem-
porary quarters, the result of a
united volunteer effort. The
school was fully accredited
by the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools in its
third year of operation.
In 1968, construction of
the present campus began,
with the school moving to it
in 1970.
Today, the campus com-
prises 228 acres and 30 build-
ings, including a 1,500-seat
auditorium and the Museum
of Art and Culture, as well as
.satellite campuses in DeSoto
and Hardee counties, which
provide all student services.
SFCC has grown into a
mid-sized college that annu-


ally serves approximately
19,000 students. It provides
traditional academic courses,
has developed some four-year
bachelor degree programs,
and even some master degree
programs.
From the beginning, how-
ever, SFCC was designated
the area's occupational
school, serving Highlands
and Hardee counties. DeSoto
County later joined the group.
The Department of Applied
Science and Technology,
which oversees all occupa-
tional programs, is now the
largest at the college.
It offers 68 different pro-
grams in 19 different areas in
the current catalog.
Part of this expansion is
due to a shift in educational
policy.
The state Legislature and
Department of Education
expect high schools to pro-
vide students with the aca-
demic basics, and community
colleges to provide the
advanced specialty skills
needed to make a decent liv-

Ohio's Sebring visits Sebring, Florida


Wish comes true

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It was a long
but fairly quick trip for Kristin
Sebring Keller Williams.
A distant relative of George
Sebring, the Alliance, Ohio,
resident traveled to Highlands
County to look up some of her
southern kin and to get a look at
the sister city of the town that
bears her family's name.
Williams rolled into Sebring.
late Tuesday morning. Her first
stop was the Sebring Historical
Society Archives where she met
with Jacquie Sebring Trevelyan
and looked at the family history.
"I believe this actually was
made by somebody in Ohio,"
Trevelyan said as the two
women rolled out the timeline
showing in family tree fashion
the descendants of town-
founder George Sebring.
Alliance, Ohio, where
Williams lives, is just a short
distance from Sebring's sister
city of Sebring, Ohio. She said
she had looked at the cemetery
there to find family names and
begin her research.
"It's all coming together,"
she said, tracing the thin blue
lines that led from one group of
circles to another. "You see the
names on the headstones but
you don't know where they
came from."
Williams' goal was to come
to Highlands County to see if
she could meet with some of
her relatives and find out more
about her lineage.
Town founder George
Sebring had eight children -
six boys and two girls. It was
determined that Williams is the
granddaughter of son Frank
Sebring, whose twin sister was
Eva Sebring.
She later married and became
Eva Sebring Norris and lived in
Sebring until her death. Her
daughter, Florence Jane Cope
McDonald, still lives in the
home..
Williams made an overnight
am) at the Historic Kenilworth
Lodge; the local hotel actually
was built by George Sebring in


1916.
"It was really neat to see all
of the old newspapers and
accounts they have hanging on
the walls there," she said. "It
was really something to stay in
a place like that built by your
great-great-grandfather."
The Ohio woman took time
out to visit the historic district
in Sebring but didn't get an
opportunity to stop by the world
famous Sebring International
Raceway.
"There comes a time that you
have to call a vacation a vaca-
tion," she said on her cell phone
as she left the area.
Williams decided to make the
quick jaunt from Kissimmee
after participating in the 2005
Power Tour, sponsored by Hot
Rod magazine.
"We started out in
Milwaukee and ended up in
Kissimmee, so it was over
1,500 miles," she said.
Williams and her friend
Holly Andereni made the trip in
a Dodge Daytona, stopping in
Springfield, Ill., Indianapolis,
Nashville, Tenn., Birmingham,

Ala., and Tallahassee before
winding up in Kissimmee.


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Jacquie Trevelyan and Kristin Sebring Keller Williams look through a family tree at the Sebring
Historical Society Archives Tuesday afternoon. Williams is from Alliance, Ohio, near Sebring, Ohio. She
came to the area to look for relatives of the Sebring family.


"We just wanted to see if we
could do it," Williams said.
More than 3,000 cars partici-


pated in this year's event, city well known for endurance
Williams said it was rather driving after completing an
ironic that she should visit a endurance drive of her own.

'Lucky' Dixon back on the job after motorcycle wreck


OBITUARIES


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING "I'm hopping
along," Avon Park boys tennis
coach Harvey L. "Lucky"
Dixon Jr. said Thursday after
running his motorcycle into the
side of a 1998 Ford SUV the
previous day.
About 2 p.m. Dixon, 57, was
riding southbound on Memorial
Drive, approaching Pompino
Drive when Misael Tellez-
Mejia, 20, of Avon Park,
attempted to turn left onto
Memorial Drive.
Dixon, of Sebring, said he
was on a curve and couldn't
stop. He locked up the wheels
on the 2002 Harley-Davidson
motorcycle, fishtailed and near-
ly missed the SUV, but it inched
forward just enough for him to
hit the front of it.
Fortunately, the crash bar
and front fork took most of the
force. Dixon was treated and
released from Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center, and
ended up with just a few stitch-
es and scrapes, including a few
on his elbow.
Thursday found him back at
work, teaching algebra at Avon
Park High School summer
school.
Florida Highway Patrol cited
Tellez-Mejia with violation of
the right of way. He was unin-
jured.

Rollover spares driver
Calvin E. Perry, 48, of
Miami, received minor injuries
when his 1996 Ford rolled over
Tuesday night on U.S. 27 at
County Road 731 in Venus.
A Florida Highway Patrol
report said he was driving
northbound in the inside lane of
on U.S. 27 at 8:55 p.m. when he
drifted left onto the median.
The Ford continued northbound
and overturned in the median.
Perry was wearing his seat
belt.

Veteran groups observe


Flag Day in
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On
Tuesday, a few strong-willed
patriotic individuals observed
Flag Day.
They went out into the medi-
an strip on U.S. 27 by the big
flag pole in Lake Placid and put
small flags in the grass and
waved the larger flags as the
traffic went by. Participants
enjoyed all the waves from the
cars and especially the big toots '
on the horn from the various
truckers as they rolled north
and south on the highway.
Most drivers appreciated the
efforts, which made those
standing in the heat feel really
proud and good. A few people
stopped and asked, "What is the


Lake Placid
occasion?" They were surprised
it was Flag Day.
Suzanne Krueger, one of the
participants, said they were dis-
appointed that the town mer-
chants did not show their patri-
otism by displaying their flags.
"Perhaps next year.
Sometimes people are afraid or
embarrassed, but hopefully not
ashamed, to show a little patri-
otism for their flag," she said.
The group consisted of Linda
Robinette, Pat Friske, Joan
Penn and Krueger from the
Veterans of Foreign War Ladies
Auxiliary and Virgil Terrybey,
Garland Smith and Thomas
Bochniak from the Lake Placid
Legion Post 25.

YMCA wants pool, but not sure when


By PHIL ATrlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Highlands County
Family YMCA has learned the local com-
munity wants a pool. Board members just
haven't decided when.
It could be as early as next spring or fall
- 2006 but there has been no definite
decision, said Mike Martino, YMCA exec-
utive director.
That question will be answered after they
know how big and how much money. Their
two options are an outdoor pool at roughly


$1 million to build, or an indoor pool for
about $2 million, Martino said.
On Monday, he and the YMCA board
met to review a feasibility study from
Yellow Brick Road consultants to see if the
community will support a swimming pool.
The good news is that people want it. The
bad news, or uncertain news, is not know-
ing the price.
Martino envisions an indoor complex
with a steel and glass structure and opening
roof. That could cost $1.5-2 million. An
outdoor pool with shade shelters would run


$700,000, to $1 million. Operations and
maintenance could run $100,000-$200,000
per year, he said, for the chemicals, heating
and cooling system, and the lifeguards.
"We're in the preliminary stages, but
moving forward on it,' he said.
YMCA will just have to raise the money,
he said.
Increasing membership is one way, and
the organization hasn't had too much trou-
ble there. Martino said 85 kids are in the
summer youth program, surpassing every-
one's expectations.

You're Invited to Come and
Experience The Power of Hope
This summer, we want to help people keep hope alive. Hope
is essential to each of us, because the power of hope helps us
through life's most difficult times.
When hope fails, lives suffer. John Maxwell says, "Hope is the
foundation of change. People must believe that things are going
to get better. Discouragement does not come in the absence of
things... but of hope."
This series will inspire you to look at life just a little bit differ-
ently... with a new hope. You won't want to miss it.

Helen Peck celebrates

100-year milestone


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
On Wednesday morning JCPenney Salon hair designer Clare Baird shows her niece, Nicole Brand, 13, of Sebring, the locks of hair she cut
away. Brand decided to grow her hair two years ago after her grandmother, Baird's mother, went through chemotherapy. Brand donated 10
inches of hair to Locks of Love. Baird will donate her ponytail on Sunday, the two-year anniversary of her mother's cancer operation.



Cancer survivor's kin honors her,


by donating hair to Locks of Love


By PHIL ATnNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Clare Baird
and Nicole Brand waited two
years to cut their hair in honor
of Clare's mother and Nicole's
grandmother, who has been
cancer-free all that time. This
week, they finally did.
Sunday will mark the second
anniversary of the date that Bea
Walsh of Sebring had surgery to
remove cancer from her breast.
On Wednesday, 13-year-old
Brand cut her hair and donated
the clippings to Locks of Love.
On Sunday, Baird, a hair stylist,
will do the same.
Locks of Love is a non-prof-
it organization that makes hair-
pieces for financially disadvan-
taged children who are suffer-
ing hair loss due to illness or
injury.
Walsh said she couldn't feel
the lump which was caught by a
routine mammogram. Without
that, she or her doctor might not
have caught t until it had pro-
gressed too far.
"If it wasn't for that," Walsh
said, "I probably wouldn't be
here."
Both branches of Walsh's
family had a history of cancer.
She urges all women to get
checked for the disease, and she
is willing to talk to others about
her experiences with cancer
treatment.


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
In a before picture, the daughters and granddaughter of Bea Walsh
of Sebring prepare to honor her cancer survival. Two of them made
donations this week to Locks of Love. Clare Baird (center) and
Nicole Brand (right) cut their hair this week. At left is Nicole's moth-
er, Kathy MacNeill.


For those suffering from can-
cer, Walsh recommended con-
tacting the American Cancer
Society at its Web site at
http://www.cancer.org or by
calling the local office at 382-
2828. She said getting a buddy
to talk to is one of the best ways
to fight the disease.
"Unless you've gone through


it, you don't know," she said.
"You can intellectualize, but
you can't feel it."
Growing out
In 2003, when Walsh antici-
pated that she would lose her
hair to chemotherapy, she went
to the JCPenney Salon, where
Baird works, to select a wig and
then match her hairstyle to it, so


that no one would know.
Baird offered to shave her,
own head to show her support
for her mother, but Walsh
wouldn't allow it. Baird decid-
ed to grow her hair instead.
While working at the hair
salon, Baird learned about
Locks of Love.
The organization accepts
donations fro men and women.
Baird said her postal carrier
recently grew his hair for Locks
of Love.
Grandma's wish ,
InAugvst,2003, Walsh began .
losing her hair while at a dance
conference for Brand, then 11.
"She wished she could give
me her hair," Walsh said. "I said
that wasn't possible, but she
could do it for someone else."
Brand, now 13, hadn't worn
her hair in a short style since
first grade. Even after having
her hair cut, it is shoulder-
length. Within two years, she
could cut it again for Locks of
Love, said her mother, Kathleen
MacNeill.
"This was a hard thing, espe-
cially for Nicole," Walsh said.
"It was a very big decision. I'm
very proud of her."
Baird normally likes her hair
really short, but endured two
years of tying it hair back, hav-
ing it weigh on the back of her
neck, and enduring the occa-
sional headache from ponytails
all for a worthy cause.


Guidelines for donating hair to Locks of Love


Since 1997, Locks of Love
has provided custom hair-
pieces to more than 800 chil-
dren.
It accepts hair from people
of all ages. Most donations
come from other children.

SERVING HT S


By RACHEL PEACOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Women of
First United Methodist Church
of Sebring turned out June 16 to
help Helen Peck celebrate her
100th birthday.
As part of the celebration,
Peck was presented with 100
Hershey's Kisses. A donation of
more than $100 was given to
the church's youth fund in her
honor.
Peck came to Sebring and
joined the Methodist church in
1937. She served as its youth
director for 20 years.
Peck's daughter, Betty
Brown McAnly attributed her
mother's long life to her health
conscious lifestyle. Exercise
and constant social activity was
a part of her regular routine.
For half a century, Peck
belong to a book club. She vol-
unteered at a local art museum,
was a member of the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce, and
took an active role in cancer
awareness campaigns.
When her health permitted,
Peck enjoyed traveling to the
western part of the country and
to Europe. She played golf,
watched baseball games,
played bridge and knitted.
After her husband died of a
heart attack before the age of
40, Peck came to Sebring with
her daughter, looking for work.
At that time, back in Tennessee,
"ladies" didn't work to survive.
The natural redhead was
determined to make it on her
own.
"She was unusual for the
time," McAnly said. "She
worked when women didn't"
After responding to a tip
from her twin sister Hazel, Peck
was hired as the legal secretary
for law firm of Kinsey and Ives.
In 1942, when one of the part-
ners entered the military, she
transferred to the circuit courts
clerk position. From there, she
served one year as county tax
collector after Colin DeShong
was removed from the position.
Peck ran for re-election in
1958 but lost by 72 votes to
W.H. Prescott.
Peck said the election came
at a busy time in her life. Her
daughter was graduating from
college and getting married two
days later, and Peck was build-
ing a new home.


McAnly said her mother
endured hardship with a. spirit
of optimism. After losing her
re-election bid, Peck went on to
co-own and operate South
Ridge Abstract and Title Co. in
1959. She retired in 1979 at age
74.
Peck never remarried, which
was not typical at that time.
McAnly recalled her mother
frequently saying: "Anyone
could get married by just
standing on the street comer
and saying, 'I want to get mar-
ried."' Instead, Peck enjoyed
her independent life.
Originally from Laddonia,
Mo., Peck earned a degree in
physical education from Hardin
College, an all-women's
school, in 1923. After teaching
for one year, she followed her
family to Miami.
McAnly said her mother
copied her sister's typing cre-
dentials to land her job in the
escrow department of the
Meyer-Kiser Bank.
'T asked her how she knew
lhe could type 60 'words a
minute," McAnly said. "She
just said, 'I knew if my sister
could do it, I could do it.'"
In 1929 Peck married Robert
Lee Peck. She began working
for him doing foreclosures for
$15 a week. After the econom-
ic bust in Miami, they returned
to his hometown in Springfield,
Tenn. in 1932.
For a short period of time,
Peck enjoyed the "easy life."
She gave birth to her daughter
and, for a short period of time,
didn't have to work.
McAnly has been caring for
her mother since 1999. Her hus-
band Bill McAnly remains in
Naples and travels to Sebring
on the weekends.
"When I left Sebring and
moved to Naples after college I
never had to worry if mother
was OK because she was
always busy, until just a few
years ago," McAnly said.
"That's why I'm happy to take
care of her now."
McAnly said her mother has
lived an interesting life and is
happy now. She loves Sebring
and won't agree to live any-
where else.
"The people of Sebring must
be the nicest in the world
because that's how she always
described them," McAnly said.

Courses go from one extreme
to another. Some are complicat-

program, others are simpler,
like the environmental services

dents for custodial staff posi-

flexible and in close touch with

its occupational curriculum
viable and responsive.

in their chosen field, the college
reviews the course's content,
and takes a closer look at its
facilities. Sometimes courses
are put on vacation; or are
closed down all together.
On the other hand, when
community leaders express a
need for specialized training,
the college does its best to
respond.
For example, when the
Highlands County Dental
Association, contacted the col-
lege indicating a serious short-
age of dental hygienists and
assistants, a program was
developed, and the nursing pro-
gram grew in response to simi-
lar calls for help from the two.
area hospitals.
Options, opportunities
"People are different and
need options and opportuni-
ties," Brown said. Which is
why the college offers many
different degree and occupa-
tional license programs.
Students can study for an
Associate in Science degree or
an Associate in Applied Science
Degree, or college credit and
occupational programs. Some
apprenticeships are available
too.
The college also offers con-
tinuing education packages for
local businesses.
Courses are available in
accounting, agriculture, auto-
motive sciences, business and
secretarial skills, child care,
commercial air conditioning
and appliance repair, computer
science and electronics, con-
struction, cosmetology, dental
education, drafting and design,
education, hospitality, manu-


facturing, nursing, and public
services, which include law
enforcement and emergency
medical services.
"I see us going service,"
Brown said, "as service indus-
tries far outweigh manufactur-
ing in the area, which is a
retirement community. We
don't have a call for welding,
for example, and even our
drafting program limps along.
Changing technology
"Computer education has
become very important, howev-
er, because so many occupa-
tions rely on computers,
whether it's police or automo-
tive mechanics. In fact, because
of computers, mechanics are
actually more technicians these
days."
Changing technology is only
one factor effecting change.
Highlands County itself is
changing, as pressure on the cit-
rus industry from cheaper for-
eign imports, canker, and rising
land values may result in a--
movement away from an agri-
culture based economy.
For example, with a declin-
ing enrollment in the citrus pro-
gram, more emphasis is being
placed on ornamental horticul-
ture, which is increasing in pop-
ularity as families move into the
county and need landscapers for
their new homes.
What ever challenges face
the college in the coming years,
Brown is confident the struc-
tures are in place to be flexible
and responsive.
"We have to keep our ear to
the pavement," he said. "We
have to listen to what people
need."

Junior Joeys graduate from clown school


SEBRING
ive children graduated from the
Junior Joey Clown College on
June 10. ,
The Toby the Clown
Foundation stages the college to teach
youngsters how to become performing
clowns.
The new graduates are Daniel
"Munchie" Bradley, Patrick "Dum
Dum" Bradley, Zachary "Wuzzy"
McCray, Chris "Gator" Ziegler and
Amanda "Kool-Whip" Retherford. They
demonstrated their new skills by putting
on a skit for the adults in attendance. It
was followed by the pomp and circum-
stance of a graduation ceremony.
Cake was served to the new gradu-
ates.
Adult members of the Toby the
Clown Foundation helped organize the
program. Sponsors included Jim's Auto
Salvage and the Optimist Club of
Highlands County. The Shrine Club of
Highlands County provided the use of
its building for the educational program.
All of the Junior Joeys received
clown fits, wigs, socks and hats. They
were taught how to apply makeup, per-
form magic tricks and make balloon
sculptures.
Among the instructors were Al "Big
Al" Pelski, Shirley "Joy" Glenn, Fran
"Choo Choo" Yorio, Lolly "La-Lee"
Tharpe, Phyllis "Daffy Dill" Snyder and
Dennis "Bobber" Koranda.
Hal Keller was delighted to see the
children's skits and each and every jun-
ior clown in full costume. "I laughed
and laughed at all the clowns when they
did their skits. They were really good,"
he said.
Mike Retherford, brother to Amanda
"Kool-Whip" Retherford, was thrilled
to see her clown around. "I never knew
how talented my little sister is," he said.
"I see her in a whole new light. She is
poised and self-confident now."
Dawn Ziegler, mother of Chris
"Gator" Ziegler, and his brother were
on hand:for his graduation.

The wooden pieces are 10-

ca is painted as close to the
original colors as possible and
the building's history is printed
on the back.
The cost is $20 and they can
be purchased at the Sebring
Historical Society Archive and
other participating downtown
stores.
The Sebring School will be
the first replica in a continued
series.
Sebring Historical Society
President Wanda Whitehouse
and Dr. Robert Fritz coordinat-
ed the project. They hope the
fund-raiser will also promote
historic preservation and
awareness of Sebring's past
while attracting new members
to the historical society.
Other buildings that may be
featured in the future are the
Sebring Fire House, the


Courthouse, the former George
E. Sebring home, the Hotel
Sebring, the Kenilworth Lodge
and historic churches.
Hometown Designs in
Bowmansville, Pa., are creating
the replicas.
The Historical Society


Archive is on the lakeside of the
Sebring Library downtown and
is open from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. Monday-Friday.

irrigation system in Jerry and Elli Million's one-acre muscadine grape grove. This is a free serv-
ice provided by NRCS to agricultural producers and landowners. Uniformity and efficiency of
the irrigation system is tested specific to the crop. The recommendation for the Millions grove
was to switch from drip irrigation, which is commonly inefficient in Florida's sandy soils, to
microjet irrigation. For more information or to set up your free evaluation call 402-6545.

News-Sun, Friday, June 17, 2005


Prescription drug credit deadline approaching


Seniors must

enroll by June 30

Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE Seniors
and persons with disabilities
can still apply for the $450
Medicare prescription drug
credit, but time is running short
for those who want to receive
the full benefit. After June 30,
eligible seniors will still receive
a portion of the prescription
drug credit, but those who
apply before the deadline will
receive the full $450 credit for
2005.
The Medicare-approved drug
discount program, created in
2003 by the Medicare
Modernization Act, offers sen-
iors two immediate drug sav-
ings options. First, Medicare-
approved drug discount cards
are saving seniors an average of
20 percent off drug costs.
Second, Medicare beneficiaries
who meet lower income
requirements qualify for an
additional $450 credit to help
pay for prescriptions.
To be eligible for the $450
prescription drug credit,
Medicare beneficiaries must
have an individual household
income less than $12,919; a
married couple's household
income must be less than
$17,320. Assets are not counted
in determining eligibility.
Beneficiaries with Medicaid
outpatient drug coverage are
not eligible for the Medicare-


Approved prescription drug dis-
count card program.
Those who applied for a
Medicare-approved drug dis-
count card in 2004 received the
full $600 prescription drug
credit no matter what month
during the year they applied.
Any unused portion of the $600
credit from 2004 will carry over
into this year for individuals
who previously applied and
enrolled in a drug discount card
in 2004.
"For 2005, the credit is
reduced by $150 for every three
months that people delay
enrolling after Jan 1. For exam-


pie, a person who applies for
the credit between April 1 and
June 30 will receive a $450
credit, but those who apply on
or after July 1 will only receive
$300," said John Bayalis,
regional field coordinator for
Medicare Today.
Since June 2004, nearly 6
million people with Medicare
have enrolled in a drug discount
card and more than 1.7 million
have received the credit nation-
wide. The cards cover virtually
all of the top 100 drugs and typ-
ically more than 80 percent of
all prescription drugs.
Seniors and disabled adults


interested in applying for the
$450 drug credit should contact
Medicare directly at 1-800-
MEDICARE (800-633-4227)
or visit their web site for an
easy-to-use Medicare Card
Finder at http://www.medi
care.gov.

For information about recent
Medicare changes, including
new, free preventative health
screenings and Medicare Part D
prescription drug coverage
enrollment information, seniors
can contact local Medicare
Today representatives at 404-
885-9596, ext. 39.


Electrical safety tips for hurricane season


Special to the News-Sun
Hurricane season is id full
swing until the end of
November; are you prepared?,
With last year's destructive
and historic hurricane season,
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
hurricane forecasters predict
another above-normal hurri-
cane season with 12 to 15 trop-
ical storms, seven to nine of
which are likely to become hur-
ricanes, and three to five of
those become major hurricanes
with winds in excess of 110
mph.
Here are 10 electrical safety
tips from Mr. Electric to help
you weather the storm when
Mother Nature turns out the
lights:
N Turn off the main circuit
breaker before floodwater


enters your-home.
E If the water level has risen
above the electrical outlets in
your home, contact Mr. Electric
or another qualified electrician
before turning on your main cir-
cuit breaker or trying to restore
power.
Allow all appliances and
electronic equipment to dry
thoroughly for at least one
week, and have them checked
by a qualified repair technician
before using them.
E If the lights go out, unplug
all major appliances and set the
air conditioning thermostat to
the "off" position.
E Be cautious when power is
restored, as your appliances can
draw three to four times the
electrical current, increasing the
chances of a short-term electri-
cal overload and another power


outage.
Avoid low-hanging or fall-
en power lines' and report them
immediately.
If using a generator, use it
outside only. Do not connect it
to your home's electrical sys-
temn, as it's often against city
codes and could cause back-
feeding, possibly injuring an
electrical repair technician.
Plug individual appliances
into the generator using heavy-
duty, outdoor-related cords with
a wire gauge adequate for appli-
ance load.
Test the batteries in your
smoke and carbon monoxide
alarms to make sure they work.
Use flashlights instead of
candles. Unattended burning
candles increase the chance of
house fires.

Grimsley

honored as

Legislator

of the Year
Special to the News-Sun
Heartland Home Health
Services Administrator Karen
McFadden recently attended
the annual state conference of
the Associated Home Health
Industries of Florida.
McFadden is a board mem-
ber for the association repre-
senting District VI which
includes Highlands, Hardee
and Polk counties.
The statewide association,
which represents all the
licensed home health agencies
in Florida, presented the
Legislator of the Year award to
Rep. Denise Grimsley for her
support during the recent leg-
islative session.
Grimsley was the House
sponsor for revisions to
Florida's home health licensure
law that strengthen consumer
protections. This legislation
creates effective enforcement
measures so home health
agency operators will have to
comply with patient-friendly
standards such as criminal
background checks on care-
givers, or face hefty fines.

Industries of Florida, presents Rep. Denise Grimsley with the
Legislator of the Year award from the AHHIF at the annual state
conference in Orlando.


Due to Grimsley's hard work
and consistent effort, the bill
passed the last day of session.
It is a major accomplishment to
pass one bill and association


officials believe Grimsley may
have set the record for bills
passed by a freshman legislator
with four successes.

Common sense


ensures safety

Nearly three weeks have passed since Natalee
Holloway went missing in Aruba.
Her family continues to wait for some word of the 18-
year-old, who, it seems, vanished without a trace while
celebrating her graduation on a senior class trip.
The situation is a parent's worst nightmare. It should
be a warning to other young adults, too.
High school graduation is that point in life when
teenagers really shake off the reigns of childhood as they
take one gigantic step into adulthood.
With an unshakable sense of their invincibility that
comes naturally to the young, they tell themselves noth-
ing bad will ever happen to them.
Perhaps that's what Natalee thought when, late at
night, she left her friends at a nightclub to party on the
beach with several teenage boys whom she barely knew.
Today, three of the teenagers are sitting in jail. Aruban
police have found numerous holes in their stories and
believe they know -more about Natalee's whereabouts
than they are admitting.
' With only one murder in the island country in the past
year, residents and tourists tend to feel perfectly safe in
Aruba. Natalee certainly must have felt safe, too so safe
that she felt free to leave the safety of her class pack and
take off with three strangers. But no place is perfectly
safe, and certain choices naturally lead to danger.
That's a lesson we hope this county's new crop of high
school graduates will keep in mind as they go off to col-
leges, careers and life's other adventures.
They, too, may find that it's irresistibly tempting to
party in bars until all hours of the morning and hook up
with strangers. They may want to trust people for many
reasons because their new "friend" is good-looking and
charming, because their new "friend" easily throws
money around or because they are flattered by the atten-
tion their new "friend" is giving them.
But taking off with strangers is never a good idea -
especially late at night, especially when the invitation
involves things like alcohol, drugs and sex. And it's not
smart to wander off alone and to leave the safety that
groups of friends can provide.
This isn't hysteria it's common sense. Being smart
can be the safeguard that, prevents a night of fun from
turning into tragedy.
We can only hope it's not too late for Natalee to learn
this, too.







WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINION.

What advice would you give to our
young people who have recently
graduated?

EDITORIALS/OPI N IONS


Bobo was an even bigger Elvis fan than myself


I don't recall when I first met
Bobo Hall. It was years ago
when I worked at the old Avon
Park Sun.
Bobo befriended my editor,
Jack Stroud, and would stop by
the office from time to time to
do business or just say hello.
Then I learned that she was
"the Elvis lady." She lived and
breathed the King of Rock 'N
Roll. I too was a fan and I
always thought I was a big fan
but when I got to know Bobo I
came to realize that she was a
bigger fan than I.
She had a cow one time that
had been named Elvis. Her
home was decorated in Elvis.
She had more pictures of him
than one can imagine. She
knew every Web site that dealt


New class will

meet equalizer

Editor:
It was with a certain amuse-
ment that I read in the New
York Times recently about the
mega-rich nosing out the mere-
ly rich in the traditional
enclaves of the super-wealthy,
such as Nantucket, the
Hamptons and Aspen.
The article mentioned one
hyper-wealthy man who
bought 15 acres of prime
waterfront property on
. Nantucket, tore down a most
beautiful house and built an
ugly, cold and modem 8,000
square-foot home. He bragged
to his neighbors that he only
spent 12 days a year at this res-
idence!
A funeral director/embalmer
with many years of experience,
once told me, he could tell the
hyper-rich folks that when they
are lying on his table, awaiting
embalming or cremation, there
is no difference between them
and the homeless man who
died under a pile of trash in
some back alley. Death is a
wonderful equalizer, is it not?
It is a sure cure for arrogance
and ugly, false pride.

Moving back

into Dark Ages
Editor:
Recently I read a letter pub-
lished wherein the writer stated
that the filibuster is "a hijack-
ing of the system of presiden-
tial appointments."
The filibuster, however, has
been used by both parties for a
variety of reasons. In the pres-
ent situation, republicans con-
trol all branches of the govern-
ment and the filibuster appears
to be the only mechanism
available to protect the public.
The writer conveniently failed
to mention the more than 200
nominees that had previously
been approved, with less than a
dozen of the most hardcore
nominees disputed.

Packing the judicial system
with judges who are most like-
ly to embrace the ultra-conser-
vative agenda of this adminis-
tration is an obvious republican
priority. Considering the far-
reaching effect on our society
of those appointed, a little care-
ful thought is definitely called
for!
In this same letter, the writer
also refers to the use of the term
"fundamentalist." By strict def-
inition a fundamentalist is "a
person who refuses to accept
any teaching which conflicts
with the literal interpretation of
the bible."
In more common usage, the
term "fundamentalist" is
applied to extremists of all reli-
gions the Taliban is one
example. Conservative
Christian and fundamentalist
groups helped elect Bush and
now expect the republicans to
advance their agenda.

She always asked about the

called and told me she was
bringing something to me on
her next trip to Sebring. She

should have kept it for herself,

When I was told about
Bobo's death I didn't recognize

leadership does not include
enacting laws based on religion
or personal religious beliefs.
This constraint is mandated by
the First Amendment and
affirmed by the Supreme. Court
in 1947.
Once before, religion domi-
nated the politics of the western
world. Any learning that con-
flicted with church canons was
not allowed to be taught or
practiced. Those who believed
differently were persecuted.
Culture and knowledge were at
a low ebb. Under this adminis-
tration, we are beginning to see
much of the same. This period
became known as the Dark
Ages and endured for approxi-
mately 600 years.

lady.
Her husband, Clay, never got
jealous of Bobo's infatuation
with Elvis. He just went along
with it.
I can only imagine how much
he will miss her. I know I'm
going to miss the conversations
we had about the one man who
we both loved to hear sing.
My prayers are with Clay and
their children. I'll miss you,
Bobo. E-loving you.

thank you to a couple who gave
us a wonderful gift recently.
In every life if you are lucky,
you get to meet people like
Clyde and Norma Jean
Scruggs.-Our congregation is- i
the process of building a new
church and the Scruggs have
made sure that there will be
music.
The Bible tells us to make a
joyful noise unto the Lord and
now that we have a new organ
donated by this lovely couple,
it will be joyous indeed. This
was a very expensive piece of
equipment but the dollar
amount can not begin to be as
much as the love of God
demonstrated by Clyde and
Norma Jean Scruggs. We will
think of you both every time
we have a service and play
beautiful music to the glory of
our Lord.
If you know these two peo-
ple, I am certain that you will
agree that they are truly ser-
vants of the Lord. We thank
you from the bottom of our
hearts.

The dates concerning his life
read: 1923 2001. Nineteen
twenty three, dash, Two thou-
sand one.
He died on Father's Day. If
he had a choice, he would have
chosen that day. It would have
been so like him to be sure I
wouldn't be alone.
Many family members,
including children and grand-
children, had come to visit, to,
share Father's Day with him. I
wanted to talk about that dash
and what he did between those
dates. I read a poem years ago
titled "That All Important
Dash." It referred to what one
does with their lives between
the dates of birth and death, that
makes the difference.


Our four children were
blessed with a good father.
George took his place as head
of the home seriously and he
worked hard to provide for the
family. He didn't allow any
guests to use foul language in


our home and showed by exam-
ple the value of living a life
with good morals and commit-
ment to God.
He played with the children
and taught them to love the out-
doors. As they grew he made


sure they were good swimmers
before showing them the joys of
boating, fishing and water ski-
ing. Living in Florida, camping
was another outdoor activity we
enjoyed.
When our eldest son was
ready, his father taught him the
sport of hunting. They enjoyed
their times together and pride in
bringing home food for the
table.
When our family is together,
we enjoy exchanging sweet
memories of that all important
dash, lived so well by their
father.

'Covering the White House is not really a glamorous assignment.

Information flow is very limited. ...This, of course, cuts both ways.

The less information we get, the more likely we are to overreact to any

dribs and drabs. I think more information and more access is always

better for all sides.'

Florida law requires everyone to Move Over


A little this, a little that


You may wonder why our
Community Traffic Safety
Team has decided to remind
people of the Florida Statute
commonly referred to as the
Move Over Act.
Current figures on law
enforcement officers killed in
the line of duty are showing an
alarming trend. More officers
are dying from automobile
related deaths than by shoot-
ings.
According to preliminary
figures released by the National
Law Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund and the
Concerns of Police Survivors,
51 officers were killed in auto-
mobile accidents in 2004.
When you add to those numbers
the officers killed in motorcycle
accidents, 9, and then those
who were struck and killed
while outside their vehicles, 12,
you get a shocking 72. There
were 57 officers killed by
shootings.
When tracking these num-
bers over the past 30 years, this
troubling trend becomes even
more apparent.
While shooting deaths have
declined by 36 percent over the
past three decades, the number
of officers killed in vehicle
accidents during that same peri-
od has risen by 40 percent.
Between 1975 and 1984, there
were 339 officers killed in auto
accidents, compared to 476
who died by the same means in
the most recent 10-year period
(1995-2004).
This year isn't looking much
better.
So far there have been 60
officers killed in the line of duty
in 2005. Of those, 20 have been
killed in vehicle related inci-
dents.
This is the very reason that
the Florida State Legislators
enacted FSS 316.126, to try and


p r o t e c t
those brave
souls that
work on
our high-
by-waysnd
each and
every day,
protecting
HIGHWAY us and
keeping us
HOTLINE safe.
---- This
J.P. FANE S ta tute
requires
everyone,
whether you are on foot or in a
vehicle of your own, to yield
the right of way to authorized
emergency vehicles.
So what are authorized emer-
gency vehicles by this statute?
They are vehicles of the fire
department (fire patrol), police
vehicles, and such ambulances
and emergency vehicles of
municipal departments, public
service corporations operated
by private corporations, the
Department of Environmental
Protection, the Department of
Health, and the Department of
Transportation as are designat-
ed or authorized by their
respective department or the
chief of police of an incorporat-
ed city or any sheriff of any of
the various counties. This
statute does not cover members
of volunteer fire departments
driving their personal vehicles
while responding to their
respective fire departments.
This statute requires that
when an emergency vehicle
approaches and they are using
either their siren and lights or
just their emergency lights, you
shall yield the right of way to
that vehicle by immediately
pulling parallel to the closest
edge of the roadway or to clear
the intersection and you shall


stop and remain in position
until the emergency vehicle has
passed or you are directed oth-
erwise by law enforcement offi-
cers.
Now for the key points
brought about two years ago by
the Move Over Act and the
most recent addition of this last
year "wreckers."
If the authorized emergency
vehicle is parked and is using
any visual signals (lights) or if a
wrecker displaying amber rotat-
ing or flashing lights is per-
forming a recovery or loading
on the roadside, the driver of
every other vehicle, as soon as
it is safe:
Shall vacate the lane clos-
est to the emergency vehicle
(move out of the lane next to
the emergency vehicle) or
wrecker when driving on an
interstate highway or other
highway with two or more lanes
traveling in the direction of the
emergency vehicle or wrecker,
except when otherwise directed
by a law enforcement officer.
Shall slow to a speed that
is 20 miles per hour less than
the posted speed limit when the
posted speed limit is 25 miles
per hour or greater; or travel at
5 miles per hour when the post-
ed speed limit is 20 miles per
hour or less, when driving on a
two-lane road, except when
otherwise directed by a law
enforcement officer.
While this statue tells the
operators of all vehicles what
they must do, it also includes
instructions for the drivers of
the emergency vehicle. They
have the duty to drive with due
regard for the safety of all per-
sons using the highway.
A violation of this statute is a
moving violation costing
$115.50 and three points on
your license. If you are a pedes-
trian and violate this statute it is


$43.50.
During the week of June 19-
25 the Florida Highway Patrol,
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Sebring Police
Department, Avon Park Police
Department as well as the Lake
Placid Police Department, will
be focusing on this violation to
help educate the public to its
existence. On Tuesday and
Thursday, a task force com-
prised of members of all of the
above listed agencies will be
working on U.S. 27 citing driv-
ers for not complying with this
statute.
So with this new knowledge,
let's remember to work together
and help to protect our protec-
tors.
Be aware of your surround-
ings while you drive. If you see
an authorized emergency vehi-
cle on the side of the road, slow
down, move over and stay safe.

Deputy J.P. Fane is with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office. If you have a traffic-
related question you would like
to ask Deputy Fane, e-mail it to
his attention at editor@news-
sun.com, or mail it to the News-
Sun, 2227 U.S. 27 South,
Sebring, FL 33870 and your
questions will be forwarded to
him.

Letters policy

Make sure to sign your let-
ter and include your address
and phone number.
Keep your letters to a max-
imum of 400 words.
When your letter is signed,
sealed and ready to be deliv-
ered, write to 2227 U.S. 27
South, Sebring, FL 33870;
drop it off at the same
address; fax 385-1954; or e-
mail editor@newssun.com.


Well the verdict is
in. Michael Jackson JANE
is innocent on all
charges. JAR
I guess we'll never
really know the truth Janelle
as we were not there -
when whatever hap-
pened, happened. But Michael
knows the truth, the boys (how-
ever many there are) know the
truth and God knows the truth.
If he's truly guilty, he'll
answer to God in the end. I
hope for his sake, it isn't true.
God is good, but he's also holy
and just.

Are you folks ready for the
hurricanes? They're coming as
sure as I live and breathe. No, I
am not ready, but I will get
ready as soon as I can. Probably
before the next one heads our
way.

It's been busy in the news'
room despite the slow summer
season. Stories are always in
the making I guess in everyday
life.
As you've seen in
Wednesday's paper (June 15),
some folks have won awards
from the Florida Press
Association.
Congratulations to you guys.

For your information, there's
only 182 days and counting left
(from June 15 to Dee. 24) to get
your Christmas (less for
Hanukkah and Kwaanza) shop-
ping done, so get busy.
Yes, the winter holiday sea-
son (particularly Christmas) is
my favorite time of year.
Romona really appreciates
knowing how many days she
has left to shop (actually, it's
rather annoying to her when I
tell her, Ha Ha!).

er's opinion ques-
iEr'S tions: "What are your
plans for the sum-
ON mer?", I had to
-- chuckle and reply,
ennison "Getting prepared for
-- the hurricanes."
I'd rather go away
for the summer and not have to
go through it all. But most of us
feel that way, so I guess we'll
just have to hang tough togeth-
er and go through.
That seems to be how it is in
our walk with the Lord at times;
it's seldom the mountain-top
experiences. Mostly it's the
mundane, everyday activities
and once in awhile a hurricane
blows through to remind us
what really matters in life and
how nice the mundane seasons
can be in comparison.
I guess it reveals where our
gratitude level is; the things we
take for granted like family
time as opposed to *watching
TV and playing video games,
etc.; good ol' water, electricity
so we can see at night, real food
instead of canned foods and
other things.
So I'm wishing a Happy
Hurricane Season to everyone,
may we get through and fare
better this year than we did last
year. Hoping and praying the
ones who got hit the hardest last
year will not get hit at all this
year. They need a break for
sure.
Happy Trails to you until we
meet again.

Keep 'Big Bad

Wolf' away

from grandma
Who is protecting grandma
from the "Big Bad Wolf?" Or
did you even realize that
grandma needed protection
due to her display of inde-
pendence? Each year approx-
imately 550,000 cases of
elder abuse.- whether it is
sexually, financially, physi-
cally or mentally occurs in
the United States.
Described as the 'hidden
victim," by the Florida
Council Against of Sexual
Violence. "Elder victims of
sexual assault are often hid-
den in society, often unde-
tected and only detected
when another crime is being
investigated," according to
FCASV. About 18 percent of
women who are raped each
year are 60 years or older,
but studies also estimate that
only 30 percent of seniors
who are victims of forcible
rape, report the crime.
When the elderly fall prey
to crime, they are ashamed,
bewildered and scared. They
remain silent because they
are unable to comprehend the
episode of the assault.
Responding to the need for
law enforcement to be
trained in the detection and
response of-elder sexual
assault, the Violence Against
Women Office of the U.S.
Department of Justice
Awareness and Florida
Coalition Against Sexual
Violence, will be using a
grant "to develop a pilot
training for law enforcement
officers on elder sexual
assault." This pilot program
is earmarked for Tampa and
Lake City areas; and coordi-
nated by Apple services of
the Crisis Center of Tampa
Bay, North Central Florida
Sexual Assault Center in
Lake City.
This training program,
which is geared toward law
enforcement, can be modi-
fied to be used in sexual vio-
lence workshops/seminars.
This curriculum includes
training, participant guides
and PowerPoint presenta-
tions.
Befriend and betray is an
elaborate scheme to defraud
unsuspecting elderly.
Sometime ago, an elderly
woman in Deer Lodge
Montana was befriended and
betrayed by two elders in the
church in which she was a
member. Secretly the two
elders, Darryl Willis, 64, and
Dale Erikson, 54, conspired
and sold Una Anderson's
multimillion property valued
at $5.3 million for $4 mil-
lion. They were sentenced to
25 years in prison.
The justice department
reports that $2.5 billion in
property crime is committed
against the elderly each year.
Property crime accounts for
nine out of 10 acts of crime
committed against the elderly
each year. Grandma needs
protection from the "Big Bad
Wolves."
Many seniors within our
society are so trusting, a
pleasant smile and a soft
voice can be so bewitching to
those who chose to remain
independent. Standing in
Wal-Mart recently, I was
asked to hold the pocketbook
of an elderly woman. I
politely denied her request,
but not before telling her
why. At work, while execut-
ing a transaction, I was asked
by an elderly woman to fill
out and sign a blank check. I
refused and explained the
legal ramification that could
occur. Without my knowl-
edge, stood another client

"I'm a mid-Victorian," Sherman said.
"I just don't like what's happening to

too much. People have lost their sense
of decency, and I hope that cycle will

"He's very proper ... meticulous, in

Sherman loves reading about histori-

of knowledge, especially about invest-

function. He's a great reader of books,
magazines, anything," Brightstine said.
Sherman possesses a remarkable net-

'Batman Begins' salvages sagging series


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
With "Batman Begins," that fascinating
young director Christopher Nolan has sal-
vaged the Batman series and created one of
the most interesting films of the year so far.
From the ashes of several dubious
Batman flicks like "Batman Returns,"
"Batman Forever" and "Batman and
Robin" rises a sparkling new hero. Dark,
conflicted, and stripped free of camp, he is
the legendary character Bob Kane created
for Marvel Comics, and he comes with a
rich emotional texture and a commanding
physical presence.
In "Batman Begins," Nolan seriously
gets down to the business of explaining
how the orphaned billionaire Bruce Wayne
became Gotham City's Dark Knight.
Fleshing out the familiar tale, he makes the
legend fresh again as he explains how
Bruce developed his trademarks: The Bat
Cowl, the Bat Cave, the Batmobile and the
Bat Sign. You will even discover the
answer to one compelling mystery why
this crime-fighter chose to take on the iden-
tify of a bat.
What makes this new "Batman" spell-
binding, though, is Nolan's determination
to make Bruce someone you can care about.
He's still driven by guilt and vengeance -
no surprise there but he has to learn how
to channel his fear and energy while he
develops his own moral code: One that jus-
tifies labeling him as a justice-seeking hero
and not a vigilante.
While the plot moves quickly, the emo-
tional momentum of the story builds to a
deeply satisfying conclusion as Bruce, the
mere mortal, evolves into his true self:
Batman. In the end, as his love interest
points out, Bruce Wayne, the fun-loving
playboy and rich businessman, is the mask
this hero has created to conceal the person

In one brilliant touch, Nolan cast his film

except Michael Caine and perhaps Liam
Neeson could be considered A-list
celebrity movie stars. Instead of entertain-

'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' have marriage meltdown


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
There's a scene in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"
when Brad Pitt warns onscreen wife
Angelina Jolie about the consequences of
going to war with him.
Says the dashing Mr. Smith: "I'm begin-
ning to care less and less about what hap-
pens to you."
Ditto for this dazzling couple as they
work through their marital strife in a "War
of the Roses" scenario that isn't campy
enough to pass as comedy or serious
- enough to pass as drama. As the minutes
tick by, the Smiths, for all their chiseled,
dewy sex appeal, are easy to care less and
less about.
As dueling assassins, the Smiths are as
perfect as the actors who play them slick-
ly Hollywood commercial and thoroughly
phony. One great escape finds them hiding
among a store full of mannequins. It seems
like the perfect disguise. Who could tell the
difference?
From all the pre-release buzz, you'd
think Pitt and Jolie were the hottest cou-
pling since Slim Pickens rode a missile in
"Dr. Strangelove." What hype. There's no
heat here, just tiresome, oppressive humid-
ity.
They do make you pine for couples who
really had chemistry like Michael
Douglas and Kathleen Turner in
"Romancing the Stone" or, for that matter,
"The War of the Roses." They could fight
and flirt and still have intelligent conversa-
tions.
That's the biggest problem with "Mr. &
Mrs. Smith" it's dumb. Director Doug
Liman ("The Bourne Identity") didn't have
much of a story to work with, so he created
endless, improbable scenes of action gun-
play, flying bullets, car chases and explo-
sions and let the special effects guys and
stunt men do all the work.
The plot is about as rich as the trailer


'MR. & MRS. SMITH'

Director: Doug Liman
Writer: Simon Kinberg
Cast: Brad Pitt (John Smith), Angelina Jolie
(Jane Smith), Vince Vaughn (Eddie), Adam
Brody (Benjamin), and Kerry Washington
(Jasmine)
Released by: 20th Century Fox
Running time: 2 hours
Rated: PG-13 for sequences of violence,
intense action, sexual content and brief
strong language
Now Playing: Fairmount Cinema 6, 3750
U.S. 27 North, Sebring; 385-9980

suggests: John and Jane Smith that's Pitt
and Jolie are top-gun married assassins
who, unbeknownst to each other, work on
opposite sides of the street.
When they fall into each other's lives,
they strike up a fire-breathing romance that
leads to marriage. Within a few years,
they've become so bored with each other
that they start seeing a shrink to rekindle
the spark.. ,
That's a waste of money, apparently,
since random adventure and wanton
killings are the spice of their married life.
The shooting spree starts after both of
them get hired to take out the same target
and botch each other's jobs. Believing that
another assassin has identified them, they
each get gung-ho about making sure their
rival takes his secrets to the grave.
Keeping that mystery and deception siz-
zling as long as possible would have been
interesting and fun, but it takes only a small
amount of time for John and Jane to get the
picture. By then, the thrill of "Mr. and Mrs.
Smith" is gone.
What's left is watching them try to kill
each other, which they do with dispassion-
ate gusto and only a little compassion or


'Can't live with 'em, can't shoot 'em': As
rival assassins, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
work out their marital issues in 'Mr. & Mrs.
Smith.'

sentimentality for the person they've been
wedded to for half a decade.
At that point, you may definitely believe
that this marriage cannot be saved and
probably shouldn't. But can you believe
this couple is in really danger of parting on
any terms?
The answer is a given no. So for a
movie that is built on the premise of a mar-
ried couple discovering surprising secrets
about each other, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" turns
out to be fatally predictable at every turn.
The violence is troubling, too. It's
excessive and cartoonish, to some degree,
and yet so many people seem to get killed
for no other purpose than entertaining the
Smiths. You want to believe their victims
are the "bad" guys, but watching these cal-
lous, superficial heroes leaves that in doubt.
Either way, live or die, marry or divorce,
the Smiths are hard to care about and so
is this movie.

Marvelous creation inspires awe of God


How do we know
who this magnificent
Creator-God is? That,
is revealed to us only
in the Bible.
The Apostle Paul writes,
"Oh, the depth of the riches of
the wisdom and knowledge of
God! How unsearchable his
judgments, and his paths
beyond tracing out! Who has
known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?
Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay him? For
from him and through him and
to him are all things. To him be
glory forever! Amen. (Romans
11:33-36)
"Oh" is just a little word. It
doesn't identify or describe
anything. It's the simple, emo-
tional answer to something that
fills us with awe. Considering
the greatness and glory of God,
Paul marvels and says, "Oh, the
depth of the riches of the wis-
dom and knowledge of God!"
Scientific technology, with
its horizontal views of God's
creation, can rob us of this rev-
erential awe. A beautiful sunset
no longer inspires a poem, but
rather a meteorological expla-
nation. A field of ripening corn
prompts a discussion of chemi-


cal fertilizers instead
of a prayer of thanks-
giving. Thoughts
about kilowatts drain
all the wonder out of
Niagara Falls. And
talk about "Light
years" beclouds the
glory of a starry
night. It is certainly
commendable to
examine the creation
through a scope.
The danger, how-
ever, lies in man,
who naturally
inclines to brag about
what he has discov-

Fyffe


ered, rather than to glorify the
God who made it all in the first
place. "The heavens declare the
glory of God; the skies pro-
claim the work of his hands."
(Psalm 19:1)
But how do we know who
this magnificent Creator-God
is? That is revealed to us only in
the Bible. There he discloses
the fact that he is a triune God
- the Father, who has made us
and all things; the Son, who has
redeemed us from our sins; and
the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies
us (makes us holy).
But we cannot know the true
God, nor can we worship him,
if the Bible is nothing more
than another book on our shelf,


or if our church atten-
dance has become a
mere habit, a
thoughtless routine.
Worship is more than
attending a service.
Praise is more than a
memorized liturgy
and formalized
prayers.
Scripture itself
teaches us how to
worship our God. In
the words at the
beginning Paul
shouts a doxology.
And so should we. If


we listen to God's word, how
can we escape feeling his power
and love? How can we forget
the majesty of his being and his
work?
Let us thank God for what he
has done for us. Let us praise
him because he is God, yes, our
God in Jesus Christ. Oh, the
majesty of his work! Oh, the
depth of his wisdom and love!
Oh, give thanks unto the Lord!

Church offering summer series on 'Hope'


SEBRING Highlands
Community Church offering a
summer series on "Hope."
The series will explore hope
as one of the three essential
components of all relationships.
The job of a leader, a spouse, a
parent, or a friend is to keep
hope alive.
When hope fails, lives suffer.
Author John Maxwell says
"Hope is the foundation of
change. People must believe
that things are going to get bet-
ter. Discouragement does not
come in the absence of
things...but of hope."
Programs will be as follows:
E June 19 "Seeing the


Clear Picture: Keys to
Communication"
June 26 "Real Time
Player: The Power of Being
Real"
July 3 "High Speed
Connection: The Power of
Staying Connected"

'BATMAN'
Continued from 2C
ing with outrageous villains -
think Jack Nicholson as The
Joker, Arnold Schwartznegger
as Mr. Freeze, or Uma Thurman
as Poison Ivy "Batman" has
rock-solid actors in every part.
Talent here replaces the broad
comic over-hype.
These non-celebrities take
something away from
"Batman," too -,the baggage of
preconceived notions audiences
tend to have of celebrity movie
stars. They make their charac-
ters their own.
Bruce Wayne/Batman, for
example, is played by Christian
Bale, a former child actor with a
prestigious series of non-com-
mercial movies under his belt
- Steven Spielberg's "Empire


of the Sun," "Little Women"
and "Captain Correlli's
Mandolin," to name a few.
Mostly known, of late, for
dropping 60 pounds for the dark
psychological thriller, "The
Machinist" (2004), Bale has
beefed up for his role as
Batman. He delivers on two
counts the handsome, chis-
eled physique associated with
Bruce Wayne and the emotional
weight "Batman Begins" places
on him.
The Waynes' loyal butler,
Alfred, becomes Bruce's father
figure, and who could be a bet-
ter choice than Michael Caine.
The other important man in
Bruce's life Lucius Fox, an
inventor relegated to the base-
ment at Wayne Enterprises is
the graceful Morgan Freeman.
The villains are multi-lay-
ered all connected, each one


worse than the next are the
mobster Carmine Falcone
(Oscar-nominated British actor
Tom Wilkinson), Dr. Jonathan
"The Scarecrow" Crane (Cillian
Murphy, once considered for
the leading role); and Ra's Al
Ghul, who may or may not be
Liam Neeson. Rutger Hauer is
Earle, the head of Wayne
Enterprises, who puts profits
ahead of the company's moral
obligations.
Among the straight-arrows
are Rachel Dawes. (Katie
Holmes) as Bruce's childhood
friend and potential love inter-
est, who becomes a passionate
assistant district attorney. Gary
Oldman plays Jim Gordon -
Gotham City's the crime-weary
street cop who will become
Gotham's police commissioner.
The beginning finds Bruce in
a Tibetan prison having been


wandering the world in a state
of moral bewilderment. He's
recruited into the Path of the
League of Shadows, Ra's Al
Ghul's mystical cult, and
trained to be a fighter. But Al
Ghul's idea of justice is differ-
ent from Bruce's and they part
company for a while.
Upon returning to Gotham,
Bruce gradually carves out his
own identity. Resolving his
own moral dilemmas are as
much of the process as develop-
ing his unique Batman skills.
The first 10 minutes or so is
slow going, and the final con-
frontation becomes a confusing
blast of pyrotechnics. In
between, though, is a captivat-
ing and thoughtful film a rev-
elation, filled with great charac-
ters, great ideas and lines worth
remembering. Can we please
have some more?

Keeping his cool

Lake Placid's Edgar Vasquez leads All-

County team after a 15-goal senior season


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
.t A lot of times, it's
all in your head.
For Lake Placid
senior Edgar
Vasquez, finding the right
frame of mind was the key
for himself and for the play-
ers around him, who fed off
the energy of his 15-goal sea-
son in 2004-05, one that net-
ted him News-Sun Highlands
County Player of the Year hon-
ors.
"He was a very hard worker, and
he had a very cool head, and he did a
lot to kind of tame his own temper
over the last year, so that he could
be one of our smarter players," Lake
Placid head coach Josh Virkler said of his
center-mid fielder. "I thought he really
calmed do%% n and became a smart player
that he hasn't been before."
The first-year coach said Vasquez was
a leader w ho made the players around
him better, and when necessary, took
games over all by himself.
',k "He would go and get a
goal, if we needed it
Badlyy" Virkler said.
'. "He'd make it up out
'of thin air, some-
times."

Captures 7-and-6 victory in finals


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK This
Rocky is no underdog.
The 13-year-old rising
eighth-grader at Hill-Gustat
Middle School smoked his
way to a 7-and-6 victory over
Brenton McClenithan in the
finals of the 17- and 18-year-
old bracket in the Bill Jarrett
Match Play event Thursday at
River Greens.
"I thought I was going to
come in top three, but I didn't
know I was going to come in
first," said Khara, who cap-
tured the 13- and 14-year-old
title when he was 11.
"Yesterday and today (were
two) of my better rounds."
Khara's accurate midrange
game helped him top a field
full of golfers older than him,
including Brad Ellis, who fin-
ished third.
"My driving was doing OK,
but the best part, of my game


was my iron shots," said
Khara, "I hit most of them five
feet and in."
Embry-Riddle signee
Jocelyn Dunn defended her
championship in the girls
bracket, beating Amanda
Blocker 4-and-3 in the final.
"I was three up for most of
the hund, and then towards
the end we just kept halving
the holes, so it just stayed at
three-up pretty much," Dunn
said, "and then the last two
holes I finally got back up."
Despite wins over Blocker
and third-place finisher
Heather Brownell, Dunn
remained critical of her own
play.
"I started out playing fairly
well. Towards the end, I kind
of lost my putting stroke, I
think," she said. "It kind of
made the round a little bit
longer.. J had quite a few three
putts."

Middle age brings about change


I cannot hide from it any
longer. All the signs are there.
My mother-in-law gave me
a pair of pants for my birth-
day. They are nice navy blue
slacks, but the waist includes
a little 3-inch elastic band on
each side. It offers just
enough give for that extra
helping of mashed potatoes or
another trip to the buffet line.
There is a pair of reading
glasses right next to the book
on- my nightstand. I fuss about
the electric bill and I think I
have after-shave older than
my teen-aged daughter.
I am middle-aged. There I
said it.
Most of the time I do not
need to say it. You see, .1 have
a middle-aged body too.
I remember a year or so
ago, I was dropping off a
cross-country team member at
home. On the way, we passed
a middle-aged guy on a bicy-
cle.
He was riding without a
shirt.


. "That is scary!" the 14-
year-old said.
He was dead right. Back at
14 and 15 I feared looking
like that in 30 years.
Somehow those fears fade
away. Maybe they melt away
smoothly like the second bowl
of ice cream or maybe you
just can't hear them over the
crunching of chips.
My athletic days are look-
ing farther and farther away. I
have to squint to see them.
They are getting as small as
the print in the phone book.
It is time for my mid-life
crisis but I haven,t budgeted
for it. So I cannot walk out to
the driveway and jump into a
red sports car. I don't even
have a pick-up. I had threat-
ened to buy a 'monster truck
and my teenage daughter
quickly vowed not to be seen
it. Should I vow not be seen
in a minivan?
, This middle-aged thing
even affects me as a sports
fan. I just cannot stay up and


watch some of these late
games. The NBA finals, the
NCAA championship game
and the World Series all seem
to be part of a conspiracy to
crown team champions after
11 p.m. Maybe that explains
why my dad watches golf.
When I think of attending a
major sporting event, time is.
now a consideration. If I drive
to Orlando to see the Magic,
I'll get home at such-and-such
and I need to get up at this.
Pretty soon I decide not to go.
Twenty-five years ago, my
only thought was who is play-
ing. I drove an hour and a half
and sat behind a pole in Tiger
Stadium to watch Mark
Fidrych pitch during his rook-
ie year. It didn't matter. I had
a great time.
I will hear people talking
about driving to see the
Dolphins play or long trips for
NASCAR races. I just cannot
fathom it. I'm just too sensi-
ble.
As a middle-aged guy, you

have a tendency to root for
the old guys, too. I hated
Michael Jordan with the
Bulls. As a Detroit Pistons
fan, he was the archenemy.
Yet as a has-been with the
Wizards, I liked him. I think it
was only because I could say,
"I'm not that much older than
him."
To a degree, it even affects
you as you watch sports on
TV. None of the ads are for
people over 40. No one
believes that a 47-year old
man will buy a different brand
of car based on a TV commer-
cial. Now, a 24-year-old with

Park, against whom he scored five goals in
a single game this season.
Yet he had plenty of company in the scor-
ing column for the attacking Green
Dragons,' who placed four others on the All-
County Team.

Trevor Murphy
Avon Park
The Red Devils struggled through a win-
less season, but the senior fullback was a
sterling bright spot and scored three goals.
"Trevor was quite eager to learn and
improve at his position all season," Avon
Park head coach Izzy Torres said of the
four-year varsity starter.

Jose Centeno
Lake Placid
The senior outside midfielder filled the
offensive lanes for the aggressive Dragon*
offense all year, and racked up five goals.
Virkler was taken most by his speed, and
said Centeno is one of the fastest he's seen.

Carlos Molina
Lake Placid
The senior forward scored six goals and
had a team-high six assists in his role as ini-
tiator for the Dragon offense.
"He was what we call a holding forward,"
Virkler said. "He receives the ball almost
like a target for the other players as he goes
forward, and then he sets up the guys who
are running on around him."

Le Mans
News-Sun
Weather proved to be a less
than cooperative culprit with
rain, often heavy at times,
soaking the 8.4 mile high-speed
circuit at La Sarthe as prepara-
tions continue for this week-
end's 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Panoz Motor Sports, which
had the second fastest GT2
time in last week's practice ses-
sion, had its goals set on a pole
qualifying time, but backed off
because of weather and
mechanical issues.
"Conditions just weren't
right for us to make that type of
run," Team Manager Ed Triolo
said to ALMS officials.
To qualify in the world's old-
est and longest endurance race,
all three drivers on a team must
do at least three laps during the
"designated" darkness period,
which begins at 10 p.m.
In addition, all drivers have
to do a time within 110 percent
of the fastest time in their class
or 125 percent of the average
lap times of the three fastest
overall calls, or risk being sent
to the back of the grid.
Each of the four classes at
the 24 Hours of Le Mans have

qualifying, the American Le
Mans Series fared best in the

,two times. Defending class
champion Intersport Racing

(4:11.719) of the night while
Miracle Motorsports were
slightly more than a second off
that pace.
In the top prototype class of
LMP1, Champion Audi's two
teams recorded the second and
fifth fastest times of the night.
Champion's No. 2 Audi R8
team of Frank Biela, Emanuele
Pirro and Allan McNish were
less than a second (4:02.027)
behind the top team from
Pescarolo Sport (4:01.197),

COOL
Continued from 1D
He scored both goals in
one of Lake Placid's two late
rallies against Mulberry this
year.
"The fact that he could also
shoot with either foot was a
huge advantage," Virkler
said.

Oracio Molina
Lake Placid
Lake Placid's keeper had
six shutouts and made over
100 saves while acting as one
of the team's more vocal
leaders.
"I expect him to be one of
our leaders next year, because
he has been since he was a
sophomore," Virkler said.

Nick Petrovich
Lake Placid
The senior sweeper was a
rock for Lake Placid on
defense, and his coach
believes he will probably
miss him more than any other
player next year.
"The other guys have to
know that if the ball gets
played behind them, (he's)
there to clean it up. And he
had that in spades," Virkler
said. "He's fast, strong, an
incredible tackler one-on-one,
so when we got into kind of
uncomfortable situations he
always seemed to be the one
to bail us out.

Carl Belcher
Sebring
The sophomore stepped in
at keeper in the middle of the.
season and overachieved,
stopping 83 percent of the
217 shots he faced in 18
games.
"Carl single-handedly
made us go to the next
round," Sebring head coach
Tim Boulay said, pointing to
the two shots he stopped in a
district tournament shootout
victory against Lemon Bay.
"It was him stepping up and
doing a tremendous job. I
really can't say enough about
Carl."

Josh Dobbins
Sebring
The junior was the primary
offensive force for the play-
off-bound Blue Streaks, lead-
ing the team in both goals,
with 10, and assists, with six.
"There's really not a whole
lot more you can ask from
Josh," Boulay said. "He had
some ups and down this year,
which affected the team, but
overall he was a performer."

Daniel Grimaldo
Sebring
As a freshman, Grimaldo
wasn't asked to take many
shots, but he converted nearly
half (five) of his 12 shots on
goal.
. "He (became) a much more
aggressive player, and he uti-
lized the physicalness to his
advantage whereas before, he
didn't know how to do that,"
Boulay said. "So he changed
his style of play to fit that
new varsity role, and he obvi-
ously did well with it. His
next few years, he's going to
be tremendous."

Jorge Ortega
Sebring
A senior co-captain, Ortega
finished second, right behind
Josh Dobbins, with nine goals
and five assists.
"I've dealt with him for
four years now, and he's
adjusted his game tremen-
dously throughout the four
years," Boulay said, pointing
out he's made an adjustment
not only to the English lan-
guage but the American style
of soccer. "His whole entire
game had to be adjusted."

Chris Weldon
Sebring
Sebring head coach Tim


Boulay mentioned the
junior's name first when talk-
ing about defenders.
"He worked well with
everybody back there,"
Boulay said. "He helped pick
out some of the holes. (He is)
a good communicator, and
just a really good head for the
game in the backfield."

Lee Albritton, Avon Park;
Kyle Williams, Avon Park;

Continued from 1D
sixth consecutive Le Mans win
and record seventh overall.
The Grand Touring classes
showed considerable strength
among teams that have run in
the ALMS.
In GT1, the Aston Martin
team of David Brabham,
Darren Turner and Stephane
Sarrazin winners in their
inaugural run at the Mobil 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring in
March posted the second
fastest time (4:22.600).
Corvette Racing's two entries
of Oliver Gavin, Olivier
Beretta, Jan Magnussen and
Ron Fellows, Johnny
O'Connell, Max Papis were
eight and ninth, respectively.
Fellows, O'Connell and
Papis are the defending Le
Mans GT1 champions.
ALMS teams appear to be
I'-


very strong, in GT2. While
Panoz Motor Sports bounced
back from its earlier difficulties
for the fourth best time
(4:32.904) of the night, Alex
Job Racing/BAM! with Leo
Hindery, Mike Rockenfeller
and Marc Lieb drove their
Porsche to the third fastest time
(4:32.235).
The Petersen/White
Lightening Porsche had the
fifth best lap (4:33.107) but all
were around seven seconds
behind GT2 leader Raymon
Narac in his No. 76 Porsche
911 GT3 RSR.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans
can be seen live on the SPEED
Channel, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Saturday and concluding on

tion.

BEDELL
Continued from ID
a fresh credit history is a dif-
ferent story.
Any 44-year-old man knows
that when he goes in the bath-
room to shave it will not have
the same effect on his wife
that it has on the women in the
shaving commercials.
Some of these frightening
aspects of middle age I have to
accept.
Scary things like college
tuition are going to be there.
Other things of middle-age we
can glory in. Yes I do remem-
ber when ice cubes came in
metal trays with a little lever
to pop them out. Yes, I do
remember when baseball cards
were five cents for a pack of
five cards. I do remember
when people believed the pres-
ident. (In the post-Nixon and
post-Clinton era, that is a bi-
partisan joke.)
On the other hand, you just
have to fight some things. My
middle-aged body and my
middle-aged stomach need to
be fought. I wish someone else
could do it but it has to be me.
I haven,t totally decided my
strategy yet. I got on my 21-
year-old son's exercise ball the
other day to try some sit-ups.
The first six went fine until my
weight shifted, and I nearly
crashed the TV as a human
tsunami.
I know it will take more
exercise than walking the dog
or sorting screws and nails in
the garage. I work up a sweat
mowing the lawn, but that
isn't enough either. I do a little
jogging but not enough to lose
the weight.
So I am determined to fight
this thing. So if you see me in
the grocery store, I will be the
one in the produce aisle. I'll
do my best to steer clear of the
chips and the ice cream sec-
tion.
For those of you sports fans
fighting the same battle, you
can do it.
We will prevail. Pass the
salad and the low fat dressing.
