WHAT'S INSIDE


.41'ON P4RK
t the table of life. the West family was dished out extra
helpings this year. Yet the family tackled their "full plates"
as a team and persevered.
It wasn't long ago, as her family huddled around her Orlando hos-
pital bed, Lillie West of Avon Park was told her kidneys had failed
after a prolonged history of high blood pressure. On May 19, just a
year later, West received a kidney transplant. Vivian West-Hines, her
daughter, was the kidney donor.
As Lillie continues to heal, the family hopes to bring awareness to
the community about kidney transplantation.
Carol West, a medical records technician at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center, shares caregiving responsibilities with her
brother, Micheal West.
"In a small town like ours a lot of people aren't well informed
about transplants," Carol said. "We want to let the public know it
does work."
Carol thinks some people shy away from the procedure because of"
surgery fears. More importantly, she said most don'tknow the recipi-
ent's insurance company will cover the donor's hospital costs.
If surgery is the issue, Vivian said a microscopic procedure involv-.
ing small incisions was used for her surgery. After three days, Vivian"
was released from the hospital.
"Everyone asked if I was afraid, but I said no because it was so
thing I wanted to do and it needed to be done," Vivian' said. "My

One demographic that has
raiNed evebro(m, is \w hat it, do
about sexual ollenders and
predators.
Local activist Preston
Colby \realized there could be
a problem after a seminar he
attended in Charlotte County
with Avon Park City Manager
C.B. Shirey.
"We were driving through
Sarasota and we went past the
church where Carlie Brucia's
body was found and we got to
talking about it," Colby said.
The I1-year-old's body
was found on the property of
Central Church of Christ on
Proctor Road near Interstate
75 in Sarasota, about two
miles from the car wash
where she first was abducted.
Joseph Smith, 37, a former
mechanic and who had lived
in the Kensington Park neigh-
borhood of Sarasota, has been
charged in connection with
the crime. He is believed to be
the tattooed man, captured on
a car wash videotape, who
was observed leading Brucia
from the scene.

heard during a post hurricane

"'The\ were talking about

tei,.' he said "-That's hen I
thought to mNself. "What a
tjrget-rich envionment those
shelters could be for sexual

Calling it "a \olatile silua-
tion." Colbv said his major
concern was not the sexual
predators and offenders in

who might be migrating here
from other, coastal counties
as refugees.
"What worries me is the

he said.
"What are we COLBY
going to do

He has called upon local
officials to contact represen-
tatives of the Florida
Department of Corrections to
investigate the restrictions on
sexual offenders and preda-
tors.
In the meantime, he has
called on county commission-
ers to pass an ordinance disal-

Blood donors

needed now
Every three seconds
someone needs a live saving
blood transfusion.
That's 1,200 pints an hour,
over 28,000 units a day,
more than 10 million pints a
year.
One out of three people
will need blood in their life
time. Yet, less than 5 percent
of the population donates
blood. That means a small
amount of people insure that
blood is there for the many
that need it. But -with the
need for blood on the rise,
that means that new donors
are needed in our area each
day.
Donors can donate blood
with diabetes and high blood
pressure. Most medications
and conditions are OK.
Eligibility requirements
change often, so call 382-
4499 with questions.
Upcoming blood mobile
drives include:
E 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday, Florida Hospital

N 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Wednesday, Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce;

SEBRING The Heartland
Riders Association will be get-
ting a bit of a cash infusion to
help underwrite their second
annual Run to the Heartland,
thanks to some enthusiasts of
the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Craig Graybill Jr. of Graybill
Security has donated a box full
of vintage race items to HRA
that will be sold off either local-
ly or on eBay.
"Both my dad and my grand-
father collected it over the
years," he said. "They worked
out here."
HRA secretary Joyce Woods
works with Graybill Security at
the Sebring Regional Airport
and was soliciting the organiza-
tion as a sponsor for the Sept.
30 motorcycle gathering when
Graybill made the offer.
"I'd asked him if he would
like to be a sponsor and he said
'I'll tell you what, I have a
bunch of race memorabilia at
home. I'll go through it and
give the HRA some of it and
you can do whatever you want
to with it,' she said.
What Woods ended up with
was a total of 41 items includ-
ing vintage posters, programs,
tickets, stickers and other items
of interest.
"For instance, we have pro-


grams from 1957-68. We hje
old tickets there are a number ot
posters from the 1960s as well
as some brochures and stick-
ers," Woods said.
Woods has been making an
inventory of the material. At
least one collector has looked
over the memorabilia and gi\ en
her an estimate of what he
believed they were worth.
"We're going to try to get as
much out of it as we can and of
course all the money will go
toward running the second
annual Run to the Heartland,"
Woods said.
The value of the collection is
enhanced inasmuch as the hur-
ricanes that swept the racewaa
also damaged some of their
stock of Sebring memorabilia.
The pieces donated by
Graybill appear to be in almost
perfect condition, although
some of the posters are a bit
brittle due to their age.
The Run to the Heartland had'\
its debut last year with between
1,000 and 1,500 motorcycles
and motorcyclists from all over
Florida converging on Sebring
for the three day event.
The convention featured a
series of free bands, displays
vendors and motorcycle games
and instructions utilizing the
Circle and the spoke streets of
downtown Sebring.


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
Craig Graybill Jr. shows a vintage 12 Hours of Sebring program to Heartland Riders Association
Secretary Joyce Woods. Graybill donated a box full of the memorabilia to the HRA, which plans to put it
on eBay as a fund-raiser for the second annual Run to the Heartland.


Event organizers said they
had learned a lot from the inau-
gural event and are changes that
will make the second event
more pleasurable for motorcy-
clists and the community.
HRA President Lane
Bradford said last year's event
had suffered a number of set-
backs. Among them was the
scheduling. The event fell at the
end of three hurricanes which


pounded Highlands County
over the course of six weeks.
"Hopefully we won't have
that this year," he said.
Run to the Heartland is based,
on the Leesburg Bikefest and is
designed as an alternative to
larger gatherings such as
Daytona's Bike Week. Bradford
said if the Leesburg model
holds true, the participation for
the 2005 event could triple over


last year's numbers.
Bradford appeared at the last
Sebring City Council meeting
where he received unanimous
approval for the second annual
event including street closures
and limited open container
allowances during the event.
"They want us to come back
and show them our traffic plan
and we'll be glad to do that,"
Bradford said.


10th Judicial Circuit about to get a deeper bench


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING -Four new
judgeships are being allocated
to the state's 10th Judicial
Circuit. However, speculation
that at least one of the seats will
be allocated to Highlands
County may be premature.
Officials at the office of
Florida Governor Jeb Bush
have confirmed that he has
signed legislation creating four
new seats for the jurisdiction
that covers Highlands, Hardee
..and Polk counties. ....,
SHowetver, Ronald A. Hemng,
chief judge for the 10th Judicial
Circuit, said it would be up to
his office how and where those
seats will be allocated.
"The seats are :allocated by
the circuit, and it is up to the
chief judge to put them where
the most immediate needs are,"
Herring said.
The seats will be allocated itx-


pairs. Two of them will be
appointed this November, with
the remaining two to be allocat-
ed in January 2006.
"In November we are going
to have an additional felony
division here and an additional
family law section," Herring
said from his Polk County
office. "In January, one of the
judges will be doing first-
degree murder cases and Jimmy
Ryce cases."
Herring said there are 28
pending first-degree murder
cases in the district.
"We tried 18 cases last year,
and then we got 18 more filed.
It's difficult to gain any ground
on that," he said.
The other judge appointed in
January will conduct three days
of dependency hearings in Polk
County, plus a day each of
dependency hearings in
Highlands County.
Herring said he made the


determination based on statisti-
cal data provided to his office.
"Hopefully we'll get another
three seats next year," he said.
Actually, the circuit had been
approved for seven seats, but
the Florida Legislature funded
only four of the positions for
the upcoming fiscal year.
Herring said the circuit is
well equipped to fill the new
post to hear capital murder
cases.
"All of our felony judges are
what is called 'death quali-
fied,'" he said.
To obtain that certification,
judges must first be in the
felony division for at least six
months and also attend a special
course.
"Judge Susan Roberts is
going to handle those and she
actually is one of the instructors
in the death penalty classes they
have for judges," he said.
The 10th Judicial Circuit


Nominating Committee will be
charged with finding a number
of applicants and sending their
recommendations to Bush's
office for his final decision and
appointment.
"They'll first interview appli-
cants for the positions. They'll
then pick three to six of them
for each of the positions and
submit those to the governor's
office," Herring said. "He'll
then have 60 days to make the
appointments."
However, the committee has
not yet decided on exactly when
the. will start taking applica-
tions for the posts. Herring
reported he anticipated the


opening to happen "soon."
"For a position in November,
I'm sure they are going to want
to have names up in late August
or early September,". he said.
Whether or not Highlands
County Judge Peter Estrada will
apply remains to be seen. He
was non-committal when con-
tacted at his Highlands County
office.
"In our circuit, we have some
really good quality county
judges, and ... I'm sure a lot of
them willapply." Herring said.
In all,'.1here are 55 new
judgeships' being sprinkled
through various districts
throughout the Sunshine State.

Andrews arrested on domestic violence charge OBITUARIES


By PHIL ATFINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Early Fiidayv
morning, Charles Andrews, ol)
Sebring, was charged with
domestic violence battery, a
misdemeanor.
Andrews is a fire services
specialist who works with the
county's fire services anid ham-
ardous materials team through
the Emergency Opeiations
Center.
According to arrest repo ts.
Andrews was at home when
he and a 35-year-old female got
into an argument. In the midst
of the argument, lie allegedly
struck her across the face with
his open hand.
Reports also state that he was
the one who called 911. 1 le told
deputies he hit her while
attempting to leave the room
and terminate the argument.
The incident took place in
front of the woman's 7-year old


child.
Assistant County
Administrator Tom Poltz said
Friday that county officials still
need to review the nature of the
charges and check them against
the county's code of conduct to
cecommeiid appropriate disci-
plinary action. Until then,
Andrews has been placed oni
leave, using whatever vacation
days lie has available to him.
Portz said Andrews' punish-
menl may depend on the cir-
cumstances. Typically, if a per-
sonl is not in uniform or on duty,
it differs from being on duty.
At first appearance Friday,
Judge Peter Estrada ordered
$5,000 bond with a 12-week
anger management course as a
condition of that. He will not be
allowed to contact the victim
without her written permission.
Estrada ordered a pre-trial
release investigation and
assigned Andrews a public
defender, according to the Clerk


of the Courts criminal records
division. He also had (the State
Attorney's Office contact the
Department of Children and
Families because a child was
present.
Emergency Operations
Director Tim Eures called it an
"unfortunate situation." lie said
Andrews is "a key staff mem-
ber" and an "integral part of
our organization" who has been
with the county for years, first
as a volunteer, and now as paid
staff.
With or without him, the
county is still prepared to
respond to any situation, Eures
said. Until county administra-
tors review the charges, there is
no certainty on whether or not
Andrews will remain employed
with the county.
"We need to review the situ-
ation," Eures said.
Andrews was unavailable for
comment.

Sebring police officer Sean Bueford takes information from passenger Nicholas Jones of Sebring Friday
afternoon while emergency crews extricate injured parties from a car on the opposite side of U.S. 27. A

Drive/Alternate 27.

Cars hit head-on Friday at U.S. 27, Sebring Drive


Traffic reduced to
crawl on busy road
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A head-on col-
lision Friday 'afternoon sent
both cars careening to -opposite
sides of an intersection while
sending occupants of both cars
to separate hospitals.
Sebring police have not cited
anyone in the mishap, since no
third-party witnesses were
available to confirm or dispute
the drivers' accounts.
However, Sebring police
reports at 1:40 p.m., Everett
Johnson, 71, of Sebring,
attempted a left turn from the


southbound turn lane on U.S.
27 at Sebring Drive and
Alternate 27. He told police he
had a green arrow, but his black
Ford Taurus hit a northbound
green Chevrolet Cavalier head-
on.
Dixie Cooper, 19, of Sebring,
said she was going through a
yellow light when the Taurus
hit her Cavalier. The impact
sent her car curving to the right
toward the Circle K gasoline
station where it stopped pointed
the wrong direction in the right-
hand turn lane, pointing north.
The crash spun the Taurus,
sending it south across the
intersection toward Sebring
Drive and the Walgreen's park-
ing lot. It stopped on the shoul-


der, facing south.
Cooper and her passenger,
Nicholas Jones of Sebring,
were treated for injuries and
released from Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center.
Johnson and his wife. Laura,
61, were taken to Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
Sebring Fire Department's
Ladder 1 responded to the
scene, as did three units from
Highlands County Emergency
Medical Services, three officers
from Sebring Police
Department and one Highlands
County sheriff's deputy. The
wreck constricted southbound
traffic and traffic entering the
highway for at least an hour.

init the, ..Aests. 'Th tliie


KATHIY ROSE/News-Sun
Jim and Marg Badour were the lucky recipients of the 'News-Sun' hurricane readiness kit that was given'
away after last weekend's Hurricane Expo at Lakeshore Mall. Presenting the kit are Advertising
Director Tonya Squibb and Account Executive Jerel Eller. Squibb and Eller worked with Lakeshore Mall
Marketing Director Paul Loy to coordinate the expo.

Hurricane expo draws big response


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Heartland
Christian School's innovative
Middle School Etiquette pro-
grain has received national
recognition.
It has been selected an exem-
plary school program by The
Association of Christian
Schools International and is
highlighted, with other winning
programs, in the current edition
of Christian School Education.
The ACSI is an accrediting
institution for Christian schools
world wide.
"The program's objective is
to help students develop the
skills and manners necessary to
interact confidently, profession-
ally and in a Christian manner
in business and social settings,"
David Noel, the school's head-
master said. "The, students
begin the process with a nine
week course in the fifth grade,


and then they take an additional
nine week course each year
through the eighth grade. So
they receive the equivalent of a
year of training over a four-year
cycle.
"During the first two years,
the curriculum centers on social
etiquette. In the subsequent
years, it addresses business eti-
quette."
The courses are taught by
Debbie Cwalinski, and every
middle schooler attends, about
56 each year.
"Knowledge of basic man-
ners has very definite advan-
tages. It gives us a measure of
self-confidence," Cwalinski
said.
Students attend a formal
luncheon and host a formal ban-
quet to which their parents and
local community leaders are
invited.
Students must select and pre-
pare the meal, and select and


invite the guests. The dinner
banquet is tile course's final
exam.
The program, initiated by
Noel, is entering its fourth year.
It promises to be even mocr
exciting as eighth-graders build
on three years of learning.
"Several unexpected side
benefits have emerged from the
classes," Noel said. "The stu-
dents of Middle School
Etiquette have become the offi-
cial hosts and greeters at most
of the school functions that
involve outside guests. And for
the past two years, one of the
local churches has requested the
help of the etiquette classes for
its annual church banquets.
"The school has been pleased
to see the growth in these stu-
dents who are preparing to
serve their fellow human beings
in a godly manner and to lead
and interact confidently in both
social and business settings."


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Officials of the
News-Sun and Lakeshore Mall
are delighted with last week-
end's Hurricane Expo 2005.
"This was a good, positive
thing for the community,"
News-Sun Advertising Director
Tonya Squibb said. "There was
a continuous flow of people of
all ages."
The idea came out of a meet-
ing between Squibb, News-Sun
account executive Jerel Eller
and Lakeshore Mall Manager
Paul Loy. .
Even as the idea was being
put 'together Tropical Storm
Arlene was whirling around in
the Gulf of Mexico. Although it
landed in the Panhandle with
minor damage, the storm punc-
tuated the need to be prepared
for the upcoming hurricane sea-
son.
Loy said from his perspec-
tive the event was a huge suc-
cess.
"We had about a 14 percent
increase in traffic Saturday.
That's about 2,150 extra people
walking through the mall," he
said.
The crowd was steady all day
and, said Loy, they didn't have


to wait for the people to arrive.
"There was a crowd waiting
at the front door when I went to
unlock it Saturday morning at
10," he said. "They were two
and three people deep talking to
the vendors there at center court
about what they had to offer."
From the time the event was
created to the time it was pre-
sented was a matter of weeks.
Because of the short turnaround
time, there were not nearly as
many booths and displays as
organizers had hoped.
However, they say next year's
list is filling up quickly.
"All the vendors had a good
response and they were asking
when we were going to do it
again," Squibb said. "Just about
every one has signed up to be
there next year, and we have
received some promises from
others that they will be ready
for the 2006 expo."
Loy pointed to the n6n-com-
mercial exhibits and displays as
key to the success of the exhibi-
tion.
"The sheriff's office was
there talking with people about
what to do in case of a hurri-
cane," he said.
The expo came at the end of
the inaugural statewide promo-


tion to purchase selected hurri-
cane preparedness items tax
free. Loy said there were a
number of stores that were
affected.
"Sears, Kmart and Radio
Shack all had items that would
have qualified," he said.
But most of the vendors were
not businesses that had loca-
tions at the mall. Loy said it still
provided a wonderful opportu-
nity for them to come together
under the same roof.
The main prize was a hurri-
cane readiness package put
together by the Home Depot.
That was picked up by Jim and
Mary Badour. The couple kept
some of the items for them-
selves, but also shared some of
the goodies with their neigh-
bors at Hickory Ridge.
"We have a lady on each side
of us here and I gave them each
a flashlight and some batteries,"
he said.
Badour suffered through last.
year's hurricanes with the rest
of Highlands County, losing his
carport to the big winds.
"I was really interested in
hurricane shutters for the house
and 1 talked with a couple of
guys over there about it," he
said.


Nursery growers hold water workshop


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sunit
SEBRING Both the citrus
and cattle industry are being
impacted by what are known as
"best management practices."
Now that is being widened to
include the nursery industry as
well.
Highlands County Nursery
Growers Association President
Mike Waldron said that will
have a direct impact on a num-
ber of large, local businesses.
Waldron has scheduled Dr.
Tom Yeager for a seminar
Wednesday to address some of
the new requirements.
The session will be held from
8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the,
Hardee County Extension
Service office in Wauchula.
Yeager will be on the last leg
of a four-city tour explaining
the situation to growers
throughout the state.
Although the HCNGA has
about 42 members, Waldron
said the new information will
be important to a lot of those in
the area who grow their product
in containers.


"For instance, Jim believes
that one day both the South
Florida Water Management
District and the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District will require all nursery
growers regardless of size -
to have a water issuance per-
mit," he said.
Waldron emphasized that due
to the nature of the new provi-
sions, the planned Best
Management Practices work-
shop would be of benefit to all
growers.
"He's going to talk about
total maxinium daily load limi-
tations, something that even
cities have been warned about
by water experts.
"All water users will be
required to meet TMDL's for
the water leaving their proper-
ty," said Director of
Environmental Policy for the
Florida Nursery Growers
Association Jim Spratt.
Waldron said that growers
who sign up to participate in the
BMP program will receive "a
presumption of compliance"
with state water quality stan-


dards and also would be eligible
to receive cost/share dollars to
assist with the implementation
of high dollar practices.
"That would be things which
would not be feasible under
normal conditions so the state
would help foot the bill for
that," he said. "See then, if you
don't sign up, you're on your
own."
Waldron said Yeager has
developed a draft manual for
the BMP's concerning both
water quantity and quality.
Yeager has been holding -the
sessions in order to get grower
comments on the issue.
The importance of the issue
was punctuated by the fact that
increasing numbers of nursery
growers have been moving
from the coastal regions to the
interior portions of the state.
"There are a lot of the grow-
ers that are getting driven out
because of the high land prices
there," he said.
Those wanting more infoi
nation on the BMP workshop
may call Waldron at Hidden
Acres Nursery at 385-1325.

Federal Route


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Sept. 30, 1938.
Federal Highway Number
Nineteen will be the preferen-
tial highway of the state, mem-
bers of a local delegation stated
here Monday evening after
attending a meeting in Arcadia
called by Representative John
S. Burks, as member of the state
road
planning
commit-
tee of the
state leg-
islature, -
for the /
purpose
of hear-
i n g f
reports of f t
legisla-
tors and
other
county
officials
and citizens of DeSoto, Hardee,
Highlands, Glades and Hendry
counties.
Highlands county had by far
the largest delegation at the
meeting, nearly half of those
present at the meeting being
from Avon Park, Sebring,
DeSoto City, Lake Placid and
Venus.
Some of those attending the
meeting gave us their reason for
believing the proposed federal
highway will be listed first in
the state is because of its' mili-
tary importance and because,
under the set-up of federal aid,
it can be built with less expense
to the state than any other of the
proposed highways;, and
because it will serve all the peo-
ple in the state by relieving traf-
fic from coastal highways.
Representative Burks opened
the meeting, stating its purpose.
The state now has 9,000 miles
of state roads io maintain, many
- of which aie really communitym


roads; and if we keep following
the system of designating and
building state roads without a
systematic plan, in a few years
we will have twenty thousand
miles of roads and not have
funds to maintain them.
"It has got to where the coun-
ty that yells the loudest gets the
most," he said. "We must have
trunk highways which we will
designate as primary roads,
keep mileage down; and if we
can do this and agree on what
should be primary roads, we
can get fifty million dollars for
these roads soon."
He displayed a map prepared
by the state planning survey

ment

as a pri-
mar y
S, road. It
was evi-
dent by
his atti-
tude that
the ques-
tion of its
status as
a primary
road was already settled.
Ivey Futch of Lake Placid
spoke for the Highlands County
delegation which was headed
by Representative M. C.
Whitehurst.
Highlands, Glades and
Hendry counties all gave
Federal Route Nineteen as their
preference as a preferred high-
way, with Representative Joe
Peeples speaking for Glades
and Representative Elbert
Stewart speaking for Hendry
county.
Highlands County's propos-
als were:
Primary Route 19 from
Leesburg via Haines City, Avon
Park, Lake Placid, Moore

state road 25 and 26 to Miami.

Sparse interest in Avon Park 'Recreation Summit'


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK What if you
held a recreation summit and
nobody came'?
Actually, one representative
from organized sports came to
the Avon Park Recreation
Committee's Wednesday night
meeting but there weren't
enough actual committee mem-
bers there to constitute a quo-
rum.
"We had three of the mem-
bers show up," Avon Park Parks
and Recreation Director Tony
Anderson said. "Clay Gooch,
Al Hinson and Earnest Perkins
were there."
The notion was to have rep-


resentatives of southh baseball
youth softball and youth foot-
ball to come to an agreement
with the city on the care of the
existing municipal facilities.
"We wanted to get settled the
maintenance issues and who is
responsible for what." he said.
"But they didn't show up."
Because the recreation com-
mittee is a seven-member com-
mittee, that meant they could
take no action. Instead it
became a workshop session
where the committee members
discussed a number of issues.
Mostly the group talked
about the direction they would
like to see the city move in, in
terms of recreation. They also


discussed passive recreation
such as the First Street and
Lake Tulane play parks.
Avon Park City
Councilwoman Brenda Gray
said despite the lack of atten-
dance it was a good session.
"Everybody got a chance to
speak their piece as to what
, they thought," she said.
Gray said some of the discus-
sion centered around "hard feel-
ings" after Anderson ordered
unsafe equipment removed
from the First Street play-
ground.
Apparently, it was not wear
and tear on the equipment that
was the problem, it was vandal-
ism.


Anderson said he has ordered
some simple, heavy duty equip-
ment that may stand up better in
the future.
When it came to the facilities
for organized sports, some
members were adamant in call-
ing for the city to establish an
agreement as to cost and
responsibility sharing for main-
tenance of the ballfields.
All three members agreed
that the city could not continue
to pay the bills for all the main-
tenance they have been per-
forming on the recreational
complexes.
Anderson now plans to meet
with each organization individ-
ually to try and determine what


the sports organizations want
from the city, as well as what
the city is willing to do for the
facilities.
"We should have that ready
for the next recreation commit-
tee meeting on July 20," he
said. "Hopefully we'll have a
quorum for that one."
If and when those agree-
ments are approved by the
recreation committee, it will be
sent to the Avon Park City
Council.
Mayor Tom Macklin wanted
to have 'all of that ready-before


the city begins its budget hear-
ings.
Macklin said he would like to
see agreements based upon the
pact between the city, The
School Board of Highlands
County and the Diamond Club
for the maintenance of Head
Field.
"I think that's been very suc-
cessful. It's very specific as to
what. responsibilities are whose
and who pays for what. The
questions have been written out
of it and it works well," he said.

Fire fighters dish up for muscular dystrophy camp


Special to the News-Sun
SARASOTA Sebring
Fire Fighters Local 3210
attended summer camp on June
9 and prepared an evening meal
for children who are served by
the Muscular Dystrophy
Association.
During a week of June each
year, children ages 6-21 are
provided an unforgettable week
at MDA summer camp.
Campers say the week they
spend at summer camp, which
for local campers is Rotary's
Camp Florida in Brandon, is the
"best week of the year."
Fire fighters from throughout
the state participate in preparing
meals and activities for the
youngsters. Sebring fire fight-
ers have been a part of summer
camp since 1999 and prepare a
delicious meal the last night of
camp. Their specialty is barbe-
cue, having won the coveted
Silver Spatula award three out
of the past six years.
Campers rate the fire fighter
meals each year with a spirited
discussion and rating system.
During its recent "Fill The
Boot" drive for MDA in April,
Sebring fire fighters raised
$1,237 from area motorists who
put cash and change into the
boot, a the intersection of U.S.
27 and Sebring Parkway. This
money pays for two kids at

News-Sun, Sunday, June 19, 2005


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING For Cindy
Vickers of Sebring, it started
with a piece of palm tree.
In December, someone
dumped a palm tree stump on
the side of Arbuckle Creek
Road, she said. The heavy
stump difficult to lift into a*
truck.
She called the Highlands
County Road and Bridge
Department on Dec. 31, and
was told it would be collected
within a few days. She dragged
an old mattress to the road, hop-
ing to get that picked up, too.
Soon, other people began
dropping garbage there, riding
by or backing up trucks at
night. The pile grew to 8-10 feet
tall and 10 feet wide, which the
hauler couldn't handle, she
said.
Someone even left a leaking
gasoline can. She worried that a
careless motorist would flick a
cigarette at the pile and set fire
to the woods beside her home.
Response
Code enforcement posted
notices on the pile as illegal
dumping. On Feb. 28, "no
dumping" signs got posted, but
the junk was still there.
Vickers talked to Mike
Eisenhart, coordinator of Keep
Highlands County Beautiful,
and to April Hartseil, code
enforcement officer, who pho-
tographed the pile on May 6.
Ten days later, Vickers
learned it was still being
worked on. By June 14,
Eisenhart inspected the pile and
turned the matter over to Road


SHELTERS

Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton would like to see
a similar policy from Highlands
County commissioners.
"I'm recommending they
create an ordinance where it
will be a violation of county
ordinance for a registered sex
offender or predator to be at a
county-designated shelter," she
said.
- She wants that posted at each
shelter. Instead, Benton would
offer such offenders the oppor-
tunity to ride out the storm in
the lobby of the Highlands
County Jail.
Benton said that local sex
offenders under probation and
parole are required to have an

Garbage haulers will pick up

and a day to collect it. Reliable

Treasa Handley, Highlands

Large or steel appliances are

"I'm working with probation
and parole on that so that if they
cannot stay -with relatives or
friends during a hurricane, they
will have to stay at the
Highlands County Jail lobby,"
she said.
Benton has been, attending
The Florida Sheriffs Task Force
Emergency Operations
Workshop in Tallahassee,
where she was an instructor.
Other cities and counties in
Florida either have enacted or
are in the process of enacting
policies regarding sexual preda-
tors during hurricane condi-
tions.

New site
A new site that needs atten-
tion, according to Melodie
Knapp of Avon Park, is a pile of
wood chips dumped on a dirt
road, about 200 feet from
Riverdale Road between Avon
Park and Sebring.
Knapp believes she may
have seen the truck responsible
for dumping the chips. She saw
tree trimming truck stuck in the
soft sand road, backed up to the
pile, but didn't get enough
information to identify it.
She sees evidence of people
dumping out there all the time,
whether old washing machines
or animal remains left by
hunters. What bothers her most
is that part of the county is
being bought up by conserva-
tion agencies and groups as part
of. the Lake Wales Ridge
ecosystem, and should be pro-
tected.

Prevent dumping
Some illegal dumps can start
with as little as a single tire
dropped off on a back road or
uncollected storm debris,
Eisenhart said. To avoid this, he
said people need to work with
their waste hauler either
Florida Recycling Inc. or
Reliable Sanitation and set
up a day to collect large items
before they set it out.
"Don't just put it out,"
Eisenhart said. "Most every-
thing is available (for pick up).
Call first."
Otherwise, he said, people
will start using the spot as a
dump.


missioners unanimously voted
to create a policy banning the
county's 1,200 registered sex
offenders and predators from
the hurricane shelters there.
That was proposed by
Hillsborough County Sheriff
David McGee, who said preda-
tors should be able to "fend for
themselves."
In Seminole County, Sheriff
Don Eslinger proposed making
a separate shelter for sex
offenders.
In Jacksonville, officials,
have approved legislation
requiring sex offenders to- dis-
close their sex crimes to shelter
operators upon arrival.

mother gave me life and I
was willing to give that gift
back to her."
Carol said they can't imagine
why someone would not donate
a kidney to a family member
after their experience.
"If you don't meet the crite-
ria for a transplant that is under-
standable, but there are so many
people out there dying on dialy-
sis because no one in their fam-
ily will donate."
Proactive family
When the Wests discovered
Lillie needed a kidney, they
immediately took a proactive
role in the process.
At the time, Lillie's husband
Benjamin, a two-time Vietnam
veteran, was placed into hos-
pice care. Lillie was too con-
cerned about her husband to
take care of her health issue.
"We made a vow to pull
together as a team and we did
that," Carol said. "We wanted
to give Mom the piece of mind
in knowing everything on the
homefront was covered."
Carol took charge.
It is not uncommon for kid-
ney patients to have dialysis
every day for years on end, but
because of Carol's persistence
Lillie needed them less than a
year. Carol became the media-
tor between her mother and the
transplant organization
LifeLink in Tampa.
"We were concerned for
Mom and couldn't see the need
to wait with a live donor in
place," Carol said. "We pushed
for a date."
She also set up preoperative
clearance appointments and
faxed the multiple reports to
LifeLink. Lillie's case went
before LifeLinks' medical
review board, and it found she
was a good candidate for the
transplant.
Picking a donor
As soon as the Wests
received the news in the Florida
Hospital Orlando, shouts from
everyone in the room went out
to volunteer a kidney. Lillie
said the doctor was surprised
and told her she was very
blessed to have such a generous
and caring family.

Vivian and Carol were tested,
and both were an equal match.
Micheal, a correctional officer
in Avon Park, wasn't tested
because he is a member of the
Avon Park National Guard unit
scheduled to leave for Iraq later
this month.
The sisters took time to
weigh the pros and cons for
who should be the donor.
Vivian lives in Hampton, Va.,
but Carol is very active in the
community, has children and
cares for her mother and father.
In the end, Carol said Vivian
pulled rank and said she was
older, and she was going to be
the donor. Carol became the
backup in case anything went
wrong.
"We felt it was God's will
because everything fell into
place," Lillie said.
Vivian spent her vacation
going to preoperative doctor
appointments in March. Then
she took a three-month leave of
absence in May for the trans-
plant.
Transplant, recovery
The day before the trans-
plant, the West women piled
into their car for the all too
familiar trek to Tampa General
Hospital. The husbands,
Herbert Ashlock and Quintin
Hines, remained behind to look
after their father.
They describe the mood to be
more "festive" than apprehen-
sive. '
"It was like we were going
on vacation," Carol said. "We
sang and we laughed all the
way to Tampa."
Gloria Ashlock, the oldest
daughter gave her mother
encouragement. "I told her to
keep the faith and trust in God.
She is God's special angel and
He has a hand in everything."
The operation was a success.
"We prayed for a miracle and
that is what we got," Carol said.
Carol was back on the road a
short while later and arrived
just in time to see her son grad-
uate from high school.
The recovery turned out to be
longer then expected. Vivian
was discharged in three days,
but Lillie remained for three
weeks. The normal recovery
time for a recipient is one week.
During that time the family
split forces between'Lillie and
Benjamin, who was equally ill.

What The


b Doctor


Ordered


Longtime friends of the family
living in Tampa opened their
homes to the family to cut hotel
and food expenses.
"We played tag-team and lit-
erally passed each other on the
highways for three weeks,"
Carol said. "I don't want to see
Exit 5 for awhile!"
While Lillie was recovering,
Benjamin's condition began to
decline. The family decided to
bring their father to visit her.
Ironically, Lillie, was dis-
charged before they arrived and
was able to return to Avon Park
with her husband.
Benjamin's health has
improved now that they are
closer.
New life
Sometimes it can take as
long 'as a month before the
transplanted kidney begins to
function. Lillie's took three
weeks.
"They gave me that lil' kid-
ney, and it just fell-over and
wanted to go to sleep," Lillie
said. "The doctor told me to
give it time and be patient. It
took three weeks for that little
baby to crank up and start
working."
"But when they first put it in,
it lit up like a Christmas tree,"
Vivian said proudly.
"She likes to remind me of
that," Lillie said with a chuckle.
Instead of making three trips
a week for dialysis treatments,
Lillie will make two trips a
week to Tampa for blood tests
to adjust the medication until
she is cleared by the doctors.
"It makes me feel good not
having to get up and go to dial-
ysis," Lillie said. I feel more
like my self."
Every member of the West
family, even three of Lillie's
sisters one who is a kidney
transplant nurse took a spe-
cial role in Lillie's successful

Crashed in

more ways

than one
Tires screech. The smell of
burnt rubber hangs in the air,
followed by that sickening
sound of crumpling metal and
shattering glass.
Two cars have met as no
two cars should. Welcome to
life after the crash.
Only this week, that crash
was me, hitting the wall.
My problem was, having
written that lead on Tuesday,
quickly and easily, I then spent
Wednesday and Thursday star-
ring at the screen, unable, for
the life of me, to jump into the
narrative.
No matter how long I
stared, or. started a line, or
paced, or ground my teeth,
nothing was coming.
And this just doesn't make
sense because I spent time this
week at 64 West Collision
Repair, and I enjoyed every
minute I spent there.
Mike and Maria Colbert, the
owners, were open and wel-
coming. Their staff friendly,
knowledgeable and patient. I
learned a lot.
And I did a lot.
Gerry Boyce, senior body
man, had me help him re-
attach the hood of a car (we
each took a side of the hood
and lifting it up, used our
heads to support it as we
threaded in the bolts).

BODY REPAIR SPECIALIST


Miracle workers bring the dead back to life


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Mike and
Maria Colbert own 64 West
Collision Repair at 2215 State
Road 64. The business is strict-
ly a body shop, doing complete
paint and body repairs, includ-
ing custom and restoration
work on any model automobile
or truck and even golf carts.
It takes skill and education to
transform a wreck into a classic.
Gerry Boyce, senior body
repair specialist, is originally
from Ireland and received his
training there in a six-year
apprentice program. That
means the first year he worked
he had to prove he could follow
orders and spent most of his
time sweeping floors.
Rut after that. every year

brought more opportunity and
responsibility.
"I'm glad I was trained over
there," Boyce said. "It was very
thorough."
In the United States, training
is typically less structured and
varies from shop to shop,
although there are formal train-
ing programs. South Florida
Community College has one.
Training is recommended.
The work is one part science,
two parts art. It requires a per-
son with an obsession for per-
fection and an eye for detail.
It can be tedious. Sanding
has to be done over and over,
using increasingly finer grits of
sandpaper. And taping a car in
preparation for the paint booth
is a slow and careful process.
But the
rewards are huge.
For example,
an older Cadillac
had been clipped
from the side
when its driver
had nosed just a
tick too far into
'.traffic.
The driver's
front fender was
wrecked; the
frame and engine
shoved an inch or
so to the left.
Not too long
ago, a car in that.

cially an older
model, would be

loss.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Juan Hernandez applies clear coat to a replacement hood for a car damaged in a front end collision.
Hernandez has been working at 64 West Collision Repair for a year learning the trade. The trick, he
says, is to master a slow, even and sweeping stroke.


such disasters back from the
brink.
64 West has a Chief EZ liner
frame and a Kansas Jack laser
measuring system. A car is driv-
en up onto a rack and is
secured, becoming a part of the
machine. It sits between what
looks like two goal posts, one at
the front and one at the back.
Those posts each rotate 90
degrees, so in combination they
can pivot completely around a
vehicle.
Underneath is an articulated
arm with three pivot points,
which means it can be manipu-
lated in any direction under the


car.
At the end of the arm there's
a probe that looks like a thick
ball point pen. Its tip is placed
at various points under the
chassis, one after another. Specs
for the vehicle are typed into
the computer and, like magic, it
displays how out of true the
vehicle is, as well as the cor-
recting measurements.
The goal posts are adjusted to
the correct angles. Then chains,
attached to the goal posts, are
secured to the car, and the frame
is pulled back into place.
Once the Cadillac was
'straightened out, and the hood,


fender and other crumpled parts
replaced, the painters made it
perfect with a high gloss finish.
Turning. a junker into a show
piece means auto body work is
worth the effort. It's the best
kind of work because the fin-
ished product speaks for itself.
But be prepared for patience;
this job takes years to master.
64 West Collision Repair is at
2215 State Road 64, just west of
the Jet Center on the south side
of the road. It is open from 7:30
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday, The telephone number
is 453-5445.

CRASHED
Continued from 1l1A
Jose Reyes, master painter,
and Juan Hernandez, an
apprentice, demonstrated their
painting techniques, and
Renaldo Rodriguez, the prep
man, taught me how to proper
ly sand an auto body (I work
on a back bumper by hand,
using increasingly finer grit
pa er until the surface felt like


silk. He taught me to use the
side of my palm because finger
tips leave impressions "The
arm gets tired huh?"
Hernandez had grinned. And it
did.).
But still nothing would
come.
I tell you this because it
occurred to me as I struggled,
that writing the column and
story are very much a part of
the Tuffin' It experience, albeit
a part best kept invisible.


Life, however, has a way of
intruding, and because I think
exhaustion has something to do
with this mess, in the interest
of full disclosure, I'll put the
week into context.
You see, I arrived at 64 West
Collision Repair, the day after
I'd nearly drowned myself at
the Avon Park High School
pool.
I was still so whipped, just
thinking about lifting the heavy
tools and apparatus scattered

about, not to mention the auto-
mobile parts, was enough to
make me sit down.
Fortunately, as I've said the
Colberts and their staff are
patient and understanding, so
instead of watching me suffer,
they invited me back after a
weekend of rest.
I had returned with more
strength. Although that left in a
hurry you try balancing a
hood on the side of your head.
It may be made of aluminum,
but trust me, it weighs more
than a soda can.
There was even something
to laugh about, because when
you said you create dust. So
much dust that the black shoes
I wore looked like Pat Boone's
white bucks when I left.
And then there was the
problem with sweat, which you
do in the heat as you apply
elbow grease to the car's sur-
face. I can tell you that sweat


and dust, when mixed, make
mud. And most of the mud
cakes'up on your arms because
that's where the sweat runs.
Then there's the painting
booth, which runs on propane
with a flame and reaches 171
degrees Fahrenheit (not with
people in it of course, but it's
still darn hot).
Go in there with your
muddy arms and they're baked
into adobe, so you crack at the
elbow and wrist. But you don't
care because the fumes in the
booth are enough to knock you
over, even with the respirator
on. And no, you don't get high,
you get a headache.
I learned that Unibody con-
struction keeps people safer
because the force of a collision
is directed over and under the
passenger compartment. And
that German cars don't have
usable cupholders, because you
need two hands to drive on the


no-speed-limit highways there.
And that six extra workers had
to be hired to handle the initial
rush of hurricane damaged
cars, which even now are still
showing up for repairs. And
that the record for returning
customers, was one winter resi-
dent who had his car in for
four different repairs in one
season.
This turned out to be an
interesting, challenging assign-
ment. One I was glad to have
had. But if you see a little
adobe man running down the
street, that's me I was too,
tired to shower.

Next week Christopher Tuffley
tries his hand at tattooing at
T.A.TS. Don't panic, he's tak-
ing an orange to practice on.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Hands-on

daddies
Our four grandchildren,
Walter, Christina, William
and Jonathon are distinctly
unique and precious. Every
grandparent could be writing
the same glowing words
about their grandchildren.
Our grandchildren may not
fully realize it now, but they
are very blessed to have the
parents they have. They are
the recipients of love, care,
protection and devotion from
moms and dads who value
their marriages, their faith
and the importance of being
there for their children.
But, today, I would like to
especially focus on the dads
since it is their day.
I know I speak for other
grandparents when I share the
joy of seeing my sons so
involved with their children.
I've witnessed many dads of
this generation doing like-
wise. They are hands-on dad-
dies.
These big, hulking guys
cuddle, feed, change, wash
and play with these little ones
entrusted to their care. I've
seen how they lovingly disci-
pline. I'm impressed with
their willingness to give their
wives some alone time while
they care for the children.
And, it's good to hear them
admit how incredibly con-
suming it is to take care of
small children for blocks of
time. After spending hours or
even days in that role them-
selves, my sons aren't afraid
to admit bhow much they
appreciate their wives.
Hands-on daddies gain the
admiration and respect of
their wives. These young
moms appreciate the help and
feel secure in parenting
together. But, I think, more
importantly, a wife is blessed
when she sees her tender
warrior in action with his
children.
Something happens inside
her heart that raises her
esteem of him. She's
enriched knowing that he
takes his role seriously and
she's happy for the bond that
develops because he's all
there.
Hands-on daddies are fol-
lowing the mandates of
Scripture when they take an
active role in their children's
lives; when they discipline
lovingly and fairly; and,
show their sons and daugh-
ters the heart of the Heavenly
Father.
"Fathers, don't exasperate
your children by coming
down hard on them. Take
them by the hand and lead
- them in the way of the
Master." (Ephesians 6: 4, The
Message)
I remember my husband
tumbling and wrestling with
our sons; biking; participat-
ing with them in getting hunt-
ing licenses; being present at
their games and shouting out
his encouragement; being
there to soothe physical or
emotional hurts and watching
the healing take place in his
strong arms.
But, recently, as I heard
him give a couple of greet-
ings to some acquaintances, I
heard his sons, voices echoed
in his words and tone of
voice. His influence is seen
in many ways, but I loved
how it showed up even in
these small distinctions.
Hands-on daddies will see
themselves one day in their
sons and daughters even as
their children grow up to be
uniquely who God created
them to be. Happy Father's
Day. Selah.

Alligators demand respect; rightfully dese rveit


S 1C 1,7!f h ,W(%, 10; -: 3 11.
-, some estimates, alligators and
people in Flnnda are 10 times more
likely to come into contact more
no%- than 35 sears ago. This figure
is based on population estimates that
indicate both the number of alliga-
tors and the number of humans have
more than tripled since 1970.
Staff at the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Consei vation Comnussion sa\ these impressi\ e
statistics bare %N witness to a need for increased pub-
lic awareness about alligator safety and behavior.
Though many people across the state have
learned that alligators awe usually not a problem
unless encouraged b\ humans, the animal's basic
behavior remains a mystery even to those who
live in close pro\imitl to this state's largest fresh-
water repule. Heie are some insights into alligator
behavior that can help people determine if they
should report an alligator as a nuisance to the
FWC.
People and alligators come in contact on a
daily basis, usually with no harmful effects to
either. Alligators are attracted to splashing at the
waters edge and noises made by lawn mowers,
sweed trimmers and airboat engines. However,
once the presence of a human is detected most
alligators ill not approach any closer. That's
because Florida alligators are generally timid and
avoid humans %whenever possible.
People should not report an alligator that is
simply sunning itself on a bank or swimming in a
lake, just doing what alligators do. If there's no
immediate danger from an alligator, the best thing
to do is leave it alone.
An important part of learning to live %with alli-
gators is recogrnzing that over time. these timid-
reptiles can become a senous threat to public
safety with the wrong kind of encouragement
from its human neighbors. Unfortunately, close
encounters with humans have a cumulative effect
on an alligator's behavior that is usually subtle
and always \er\ dangerous,
Trained biologists and staff at the FWC are
experts at recognizing the tell tale signs that indi-
cate a breakdown has started to occur in the
behave ior that protects people from alligator
attack. Liv ing in close proximity to a creature that
is exhibiting signs of nuisance behavior is not an
option. The situation needs to be dealt with by
professionals from the FWC before someone gets
hurt If you have any questions as to % whether an
alligator's behavior indicates aggres-
ston, call the experts at the FWC to

have them make a determination.
Alligators that are actively causing problems or
threatening public safety should be reported as
nuisances immediately. Call the FWC's new toll
free alligator hotline at (866) FWC-GATOR 1866-
392-4286') and file a nuisance complaint. If the
alligator is in a swimming pool, at a school bus
stop, under a car or in any place where people or
pets are likely to travel, report it to the FWC right.
away.
If the alligator is longer than four feet and
meets the FWC's criteria as a nuisance animal, it
is harvested for its meat and hide by a permitted
FWC trapper. Nuisance alligators larger than six
feet present the greatest hazard to humans and
pets. Smaller gators, four feet or less in length
pose little threat to people but they can dehver a
nasty bite that should be seen by a physician. The
bacteria in an alligator's mouth cause bite wounds
to become infected easily..

Moving on
There are however, instances where the public
can misinterpret an alligator's actions as aggres-
sive when in fact those actions indicate quite the
opposite. Here is an example; During the spnng
and summer, alligators sometimes need to move
great distances over land to meet their survival
needs and they show up in unusual places. Places
that are high and dry are just temporarN resting
spots and if left alone, the animal will usually
move on in search of more suitable habitat.
However, without the comfort of their traditional
watery escape routes. these landlocked alligators
will frequently resort to defensive hissing
and snapping as a warning to stay clear.
While the sound of a hissing alligator.
can be very unner- ing, it's not the
gators that w arn you about their pres-
ence that are the problem. it's the
ones that don't.
Alligators located at the
waters edge may

''- ," '' .


act quite differently from those that are land-
locked travelers. Alligators should retreat into the
water at the approach of humans. If the alligator
lets a person get very close without somedefev-
sive action on its part. it needs to be reported.

Stay safe
Here are some basic guidelines from FWVC
experts \\ho will help people stay on safe tennis
with alligators.
Don't feed or entice alligators. Inform others
that feeding alligators is against state law.
Alligators lose their natural fear of people when
they associate people with food. Feeding alliga-
tors creates a danger for e eryone.
Don't feed any wildlife in or near the water.
Those people who feed any r) pe of creature livhy-
ing near the waters edge, or anglers who throw
fish scraps into the water, are playing with fire.
Although this is not intentionally feeding alliga-
tors, it creates a situation where the .ai O.g see
these events and begiri to associate people as a
food source. Further, alligators do not make dis-
tinctions between the chef, the waiter, the food or
w ho is being served. Dispose of fish scraps or
other potential alligator foodstuffs properly.
Don't let pets swim or run along the shore-
line of waters known to contain large alligators.
Alligators are attracted to dogs probably because
they are about the same size as an alligator's nat-
ural pre\.
Don't swim or allow pets to swim in areas
with emergent vegetation (plants growing up out
of the water). Alligators favor this type of habitat.
Swim in designated areas only.
Don't swim, walk dogs or small children, at
night or at dusk, along the shoreline of waters
that are known to contain large alligators. Large
alligators feed most actively during the evening
hours. It is illegal to water-ski after dark in
Florida.
Don't try to remove alligators from their nat-
ural habitat or try to keep one as a pit. It is strict-
ly against the law to do so. Alligator do not
become tame in captivity and handling even small
.ones may result in bites. Instead. enjoy
watching and photographing alligators
from a distance. -: l

ARTS & LEISURE


Books shed light on some of nature's engrossing mysteries


I can't remember my parent's
phone number, but I can
remember that a dragonfly has
six legs but can't walk.
Strange, isn't it? Our world
has many curious and unex-
plained facts, documented; yet
not understood.
Many have tried to make
sense of all this and our
libraries offer up their explana-
tions to you. It's worth the drive
to your library to check out
"Why Moths Hate Thomas
Edison and Other Urgent
Inquiries Into the Odd Nature of
Nature."
Just like potato chips, one
just isn't enough, so we've got
more to solve or try to solve
those questions that wake you
up at 3 a.m. Take home
"Strange Stories, Amazing
Facts: Stories That are Bizarre,


Unusual, Odd,
Astonishing, and
Often Incredible" or
"Charles Berlitz's
World of the Odd & 1'9
the Awesome," docu-
mented discoveries
that confound science
and astound the sens-
es.
Robert Ripley LIBRA
made a career of
finding incredible, Cai
hard-to-believe peo- Hes
pie and things and his
legacy continues with
the 2004 publication of
"Ripley's Believe It or Not."
There are so many things we
don't understand that they fill
more than a few books, so take
home "Unexplained! Strange
Sightings, Incredible
Occurrences & Puzzling


RY
rol
se


Ph y s i c a l
Phenomena a,"
"Amazing Mysteries
of the World,"
"Unsolved Mysteries
of the Past" or the
video "Amazing
Earth: The
Catastrophic Past."
One Florida chil-
LINES dren's author has
written a number of
lyn books to help explain
link nature's mysteries.
- Patricia Armentrout's
Lights in the Sky"
explains what often is seen as
unexplainable. In "Ocean
Currents" she examines the
great movement of water called
ocean currents and how they
affect our weather, while
"Caves" shows us the strange
underworld of rock and water,


mysterious, sometimes bat-
filled caverns of darkness and
wonder.
But what about finding
answers to those 3 a.m.
thoughts that plague us? Look
no further than "How Does
Aspirin Find a Headache?: An
Imponderable Book." Let no
one stop you from digging into
our whimsical illustrated book
of weird facts and tidbits, called
"How to Hold a Crocodile,"
filled with mathematical formu-
las, natures oddities, even giv-
ing instructions- on how to teach
a bear to dance (this is a must
read).
Our state is much more than
the playground of a round-eared
rodent. Get the facts in "Florida
Curiosities: Quirky Characters,
Roadside Oddities & Other
Offbeat Stuff." Maybe seeing


isn't believing, or is it? You'll
find out in "Can You Believe
Your Eyes?: Over 250 Illusions
and Other Visual Oddities."
So you're a history lover,
and/or a sports fan from way
back...you aren't left out either.
Check out "Civil War
Curiosities: Strange Stories,"
"Oddities, Events, and
Coincidences," "Military
History's Top 10 Lists: Great
Commanders, Improbable
Victories, Unlikely Heroes, and
Other Martial Oddities" or
"Baseball Oddities: Bizarre
Plays and Other Funny Stuff."
Embrace the reality of the
unexplainable in "It's Raining
Frogs and Fishes: Four Seasons
of Natural Phenomena and
Oddities of the Sky," "Bizarre
Beasts and Other Oddities of
Nature" or our favorite book,


"Oh Yuck! The Encyclopedia of
Everything Nasty."
Grade-schoolers will revel in
learning all kinds of unbeliev-
able, gross things about our
own bodies, such as eye gunk,
body lint, and snot. Just to add
to the disgusting (but fascinat-
ing) facts, this compendium
includes maggots, rats, slugs
and cockroaches!!
Perhaps some things should
remain a mystery.

istrative secretary of the

ALLIGATORS
Continued from 1C
Do fence your waterfront property.
Appropriate fencing helps protect family and pets
against incursions by alligators.

Alligator knowledge
Alligators are cold-blooded reptiles whose
metabolic rate increases or decreases as the water
and air temperatures around them change. During
cooler months alligators are generally lethargic
and don't move around much. By the beginning
of April when the weather starts to warm, alliga-
tors become active, feeding more, looking for
v new territories and mating. This period of high
activity may extend into October in the southern
parts of the state.
During the peak months for alligator activity,
the FWC's Lakeland regional office will receive
on average, 100 nuisance alligator complaints a
day or about 6,000 complaints a year.
In 2004, the FWC's Lakeland regional office,
which services a 12-county area in Southwest
Florida stretching from Brooksville to Fort
Myers, received 6,296 nuisance alligator com-
plaints (a 12 percent increase over 2003). There
were 2,441 alligators harvested by permitted nui-
sance trappers in the Southwest Region last year
(about the same as in 2003).
Statewide, in 2004, there were 18,048 com-
plaints received (an increase of 5 percent over
2003), resulting in the harvest of 7,331 alligators


(an increase of 8.5 percent over 2003). Since the
nuisance alligator program began 25 years ago,
the FWC has received 290,358 complaints result-
ing in 120,347 alligators being harvested
statewide by permitted trappers.
Since 1948, there have been 15 recorded
attacks on humans that have been fatal, including
two last year in Lee County. There have been 327
non-fatal alligator attacks documented by the
FWC, many as a result of people who tried to
capture or handle an alligator. Divers hired to
retrieve balls from golf. course ponds have been
involved in 24 of the 327 non-fatal encounters.
Despite the reptile's reputation, alligators can
and do coexist in close proximity to people with-
out causing problems. All it takes is a little under-
standing of the alligator's needs and habits to
ensure a healthy coexistence.
Alligators play a vital role in the ecology of the
state's wetlands and are an important part of
Florida's heritage. It is against the law to feed,
harass, molest, and attempt to move or kill alliga-
tors. Violators should be reported by calling the
FWC's 24-hour, Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888)
404-3922. Callers may remain anonymous and
may be eligible for a reward.

I talked her out of leaving
this time (my theory is if she
and her family are going to
move from Georgia they can
jolly well move to Highlands
County so we could see each
other more often) then went to
the Drudge Report, which con-
tained the latest outrage.
In case you missed this
United Press International
story, let me sum it up for you.
There is a man named Morgan
Reynolds, who (according' to
the article) was a member of
President Bush's first adminis-
tration, serving in the
Department of Labor.
Reynolds, currently a professor
emeritus at Texans A & M
University and a former direc-
tor of the Criminal Justice
Center at the National Center
for Policy Analysis in Austin,
claims the official report of
what caused the World Trade


9/11 is "bogus."
He apparently believes the
towers fell as a result of a con-
trolled demolition. In other
words, someone used explo-
sives in the towers to bring
them down. In other words, our
government had a hand in what
happened that day.
No wonder my friend was
ticked.
The story does not say that
Reynolds possesses any struc-
tural engineering degrees nor
did UPI quote anyone who did
possess such degrees as, agree-
ing with this particular theory.
After reading the story, I had
two thoughts: Either the man
had an axe to grind with the
Bush administration, or he's
writing a book.
Of course, some people will
latch onto this theory and with-
out any further evidence pro-
claim that it is true. These are
I


There are several terms I use
to describe people who think
like this, such as a couple of
sandwiches short of a picnic,
couple of tacos short of a
combo plate, the elevator does-
n't go to the top floor. Maybe
you can think of others, but I
think you get my drift.
I know I run the risk of being
told I'm mean to question the
mental abilities of people who
are willing to take this sort of
trash as gospel truth, but let's
face it; believing such stuff
without any substantial evi-
dence to fall back on isn't
exactly reasonable. A lot of
times, believing this stuff says
far more about the believers
than it does on anyone else.
When I think over both Bill
Clinton and George W. Bush's
presidential stints, I am amazed
at the conspiracy theories and


e
ie
r-
t-
s,
er
ir


opponents tell it, both men are
the Anti-Christ out to destroy
the United States (or their wives
are, but that's another column).
Don't get me wrong I
have major disagreements with
Bill Clinton's views and George
Bush isn't a perfect president.
But there is a difference
between debating policy differ-
ences and attacking people.
Some are forgetting that in the
heat of battle.
Though if conspiracy theo-
rists are really that disgusted
with how the country is being
run, they could always find
another place to live. My friend
in Georgia says New Zealand is
nice.

dent and a contributing colum-

An agenda of
destruction
Editor:
The saying goes "Always
watch what you wish for," you
just might not get what you
want.
The U.S. House of
Representatives with Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi is the
leader of the pack to make
President Bush set a deadline
for getting out of Iraq.
Before those in favor of this
cheer and praise her, think
twice ...
According to the Communist
Party USA during the 2004
election they bragged they had
60 U.S. House ,, of
Representatives under their
thumb ... Check the list of
House members that voted on
this issue and ask yourself the
question, which of those are the
60 under the Communist Party
USA thumb.
The Communist Party USA
wants the United States out of
Iraq, that is why they supported
John Kerry for president.
The Communist Party USA
has already 64 percent.of what
they want by our laws being
passed favoring their agenda ...
abortion, homosexuality, votes
by felons, favor of sexual activ-
ity of young children and any
thing that has to do with our
Christian beliefs. And I will
add the one thing that they need
to do is for the United States to
do away with corporations,
which is the capitalism of our
great country and from some
letters there, are those who are
in complete agreement with the
Communist Vision.
And they hate George Bush,
our president, and our method
of government. Democracy.
The following is what you
get when you favor anything

that minority leader Nancy
Pelosi wants:
"In an ABC interview on
May 1, Mrs. Pelosi dismissed
questions about travel of
Democrats telling interviewer
George Stephanopoulos, 'Do
not fall into a Republican trap
for equating technicalities on
reporting, timing of reporting
with out upholding an ethical
standard of the House.' "
In other words, forget about
the many Democrats that did
exactly what Tom Delay did. It
turns out that more Democrats
were guilty of this same crime


they blame Tom Delay and
want his head on the chopping
block, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi
office personnel, also blamed
for this crime, is suppose to be
forgotten.
If anyone thinks this type of
thinking from our elected offi-
cials is good for our country
forget it. The Communist Party
USA love it ... and is sitting
back and watching all of us to
destroy our own democracy.
They are now in fear of the
Communist Party taking over
the India democracy.


A point of fact, for those who
find so much fault with
President Bush, and believe
everything they are told to add
to their hatred ... In a few years,
President Bush will no longer
be president and believe me, the
Communist Party USA is sit-
ting in the wings just waiting to
see who the next president is
and hoping the voters pick the
right one to further along their
agenda to destroy this great
country we have ... the best in
the world.

10 Years Ago
June 19, 1995: Three
Firemen pitchers combined
for a one-hitter in a 7-0
shutout of Home Savings in
the first round of the
Sebring Dixie Youth Majors
city tournament. Ryan
Knowles pitched the first
two innings, James
Yohman the middle two,
and Richie Cormier the final
two. Brannon Sparks got
the only hit for Home
Savings, a roller past short-
stop in the fourth inning.

25 Years Ago
June 19, 1980: After rip-
ping Lake Wales 19-2 earli-
er in the District 4 East Area
tournament, the Avon Park
9- and 10-year-old All-Stars
edged the same Lake Wales
team 4-3 to win the tourna-
ment title. Second baseman
Woody Wood tripled in the
first and drove in what
proved to be the winning
run on a two-run double in
the second inning.

AP National knocks off Lake Placid


Avon Park American falls to

Clewiston 'A' on last-out single


By CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
CLEWISTON Colton
Brock, Billy Rogers and Caleb
Reeves combined to start Avon
Park National off right in the
Dixie Youth AAA (ages 9-10)
District 8 tournament.
The three pitchers worked
two innings each and held the
Lake Placid bats in check, scat-
tering eight hits and giving up
only three runs as the Avon Park
offense took its cue from
Rogers to come up with a 6-3
victory in Saturday's first
round.
Rogers drove in half of his
team's runs on a single, a dou-
ble and a fielder's choice and
didn't allow a hit while pitching
both the third and fourth
innings. His RBI double in the
first inning launched Avon
Park's quick jump to a 3-0 lead.
Skylar Bello drew a walk
with the bases loaded in the bot-
tom of the second to up the lead
to 4-0 and then after Mark
Devlin, Brock and Reeves came
up with three consecutive sin-
gles in the third inning, Rogers
drove in the fifth run on a field-


er's choice.
Lake Placid finally got on the
board in the fifth inning when
consecutive infield singles by
Tyler Bertoniere and Alex
Miller set up Cole Russell's
two-run single. ,
Avon Park National respond-
ed quickly in the bottom of the
fifth when Devlin singled and
Rogers drove him in with his
triple.
Lake Placid struck again for
a run in the top of the sixth on a
Bertoniere RBI groundout that
allowed Morgan Lott to score
and make, it 6-3, but Reeves
closed out the game without let-
ting Lake Placid get any closer.
Brock had three strikeouts
for Avon Park, while Rogers
had one. For Lake Placid,
starter Tyler Carr fanned four,
Lott struck out two and Rufino
Guterez struck out one as each
worked two innings.
Avon Park National will face
Sebring National, which drew a
first-round bye, today at 2 p.m.,
while Lake Placid will face
Avon Park American at the
same time. Sebring American's
game against Belle Glade was

Hours of practice have added


up to success for Jesse Baker


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING
Before he outhits you, he'll
outwork you.
Jesse Baker gained plen-
ty of notice around the
Sebring Dixie Youth Majors league
this summer with 10 home runs in
his team's 18 games, but it was tens
of thousands of practice balls that
helped him grow into the city's best
12-year-old slugger.
"He and his dad have just been
working hard for many years," said
Ryan Leaphart, Baker's coach on the
Firemen. They come out and hit
bucket after bucket of balls. I think
it's just flat-out hard work.
Obviously there's talent there, but
they just hit ball after ball after ball.
I wish I could take some credit for
it, but I wouldn't even begin to."
"He's worked hard the last couple
of years to get to where he's at,"
said Jesse's father, Rex.
Two years ago, when Leaphart
drafted Jesse as a 10-year-old for the
Majors, a league for 11- and 12-
year-olds, Jesse went homer-less for
the year. The next season he hit
seven, and this year he made it into
double digits, in part, he believes,
because he's finally competing
against a good percentage of
younger players.


"We've worked on his bat speed a
lot, and he lifted weights last sum-
mer," Rex said. "We spent two
months just on light weight training,
strength training, and it's helped him
a lot with his bat speed, so he's hit
the ball a little bit harder this year."
Yet coming off his breakthrough
year in 2004, Jesse wasn't expecting
too many of the league's pitchers to
give him much to hit. Instead, he
drew only four walks and wound up

'He can go as far

as he wants to.'
Firemen coach RYAN LEAPHART

driving in 38 runs as he batted .638.
"He would swing at anything and
still hit that high," Leaphart said.
"The only thing I worked with him a
lot on was pitch selection. If he
could just hit strikes, he could hit
probably .700 or .800 at this level."
Though such outlandish averages
would likely be confined to youth
leagues, Leaphart said, he nonethe-
less believes Jesse can be successful
in high school, college or beyond,
precisely the goal Jesse has laid out
for himself since kindergarten.
"I'd like to make the Major
Leagues and set a name for myself,"


he said.
He is already on the cusp of going
farther than his father ever went.
Rex said his sport growing up was
football, and that he quit baseball at
the age of 14. Later, though, Rex
picked up baseball again during a
four-year stint in the Navy, and it
was then that he picked up the drills
that he uses daily with his son.
"We do a lot of tracking and tim-
ing drills, which is like a soft toss,"
Rex said.
"Everybody knows about it.
They're out there before the game,"
Leaphart said. "Even if we had (bat-
ting practice), they'd be out there
before BP taking their own BP. He
just loves to swing the bat."
Jesse said he'll spend five to six
hours a day on baseball in the sum-
mertime, if he doesn't have a game.
If he does, the entire day is struc-
tured around getting ready to play.
"He actually drags me down
here," Rex said. "I don't have to
force him to come down and play."
Indeed, Jesse needs little coaxing.
"He's an amazing kid," Leaphart
said. "In three years I never heard
him saying anything but 'Yes, sir' or
'No, sir.'

Playoffs needed

in both Buick

Scramble events
BY JOHN RITfER
News-Sun
SEBRING After being postponed for
seven days due to heavy rains that flooded
both the Harder Hall and Sebring Golf Club
courses, the world's largest amateur tourna-
ment finally got to resume Saturday.
And it was only fitting that after the delays,
both courses would need sudden-death play-
offs to decide the survivors of the Buick
Scramble presented by Alan Jay.
The Harder Hall course had planned on
sending three teams to the next round of sec-
tionals in Port St. Lucie, one team with the
lowest gross score and two teams with the
lowest two net scores. But after two teams on
the Harder Hall course were tied at the end of
the day for second lowest net score of 57, both
were forced to battle it out again on hole No.
1. And with a one shot handicap on that first
playoff hole, the team of Paul McCormac, Jim
Cercy, Linda Therrian and Joe Craigo knocked
off William Dremm, Mike Parker, Dick
Robinson and Butler Smith for the final spot.
"We both had to chip it on cause we were
both short and we both made the putts but we
had a stroke and they didn't," Therrian said.
Prior to that, Pat Dell, Roger Wright, Ken
Poe Jr. and Laura Poe shot the lowest net score
on either course with a circuit of 55 to take a
spot.

BUICK
Continued from 3D
"We were just fortunate that
we hung in there," Dell said. "It
got down to the last two holes
and I was not hitting good and I
was 'afraid of going out of
bounds so I went the other way
and I pulled it into the woods
both times so we had to play out
of the woods. Fortunately, bne
of us hit it onto the fringe on the
green so we could save par; oth-
erwise we would've been los-
ing strokes."
After the round, Dell and the
rest of his team took some time
to rave about the play of the
only female in the group.
"Laura 'Poe was our 'A' play-
er," he added. "On hole No. 2,
she hit it to the fringe of the
green on her drive and we put it
in for an eagle two and I think
everyone should've heard us
scream. That definitely was a
highlight. She carried us."
David Draught, Jerry Doyle,
Ken Ross and Joan Denstorff
also teamed up to win a spot
with the low gross score, shoot-
ing an 11-under 61.
On the other side of
Golfview Drive, three teams
were forced to hit the links
again in a playoff at Sebring
Golf Club to determine which'
teams would advance to the
next round after four teams in
all floated in with a 12-under 60
on the day, all tying for a low
gross round.
The only team that was
excused from the extracurricu-
lar activity was the Hitt family
- Rick, Harold, Scott and
Richard when their handicap
of 3 gave then a low net score
of 57 and an automatic berth
into the July 7 sectional tourna-
ment.
Three holes were needed to
decide who would join them.
Eddie Freeland, Mark
Palmer, and Tres Stephenson
and Kevin Robinson won the
playoff with three consecutive
birdies.
"All three teams birdied the
first and the second and then
(on the par 3) Tres Stephenson
knocked it up there tight on No.
3 and Doc Robinson made the
birdie tnd the\ ropn it,'" club
pro Tom MNcClurg said about

the hole.
If any of the teams qualify
after the event in Port St. Lucie,
the next step will be the nation-
al championship at Disney
where the winner will be
awarded a trophy personally by
Tiger Woods. All of the teams
have a shot of advancing, said
McClurg.
"Either one of the two teams
I've got can play well.. Like I
said, it's a toss-up between the
Hitts, (who have) a great team
that can flat out hit the ball, and
Eddie's got a good strong team.


"(The tourney) is great for
our course. Two years ago, I
qualified for the national cham-
pionship so it's a lot of fun. A
lot of excitement and you know
just a great tournament and
Alan Jay, you can't say enough
about him, he bought shirts and
everything. And both of our
superintendents did a great job
of getting our course ready after
all that rain and I think we did
the right things and we ended
up getting more teams.
"All in all I think it was a
very successful event."


The artificial bass baits we
use today are made to look as
much like their natural prey as
possible and manufacturers
attempt to put a lifelike action
into their creations. This was
not true of very early artificial
baits. Some makers tried to
imitate minnows and small fish
successfully, but a lot of the
early baits were grotesque.
A lure made in England was
probably the first bass plug
introduced in America some-
time around 1810 and it did
resemble a minnow. It had a
body made of silk with a metal
head and metal fins on each
side. Sporting barbed hooks, it
was called the Phantom
Minnow.
At the beginning of the 20th
century, James Heddon whit-
tled a few wooden plugs for
his own use and some for
friends. Among the firstwas a
three-inch frog that is now
extremely rare and valuable.
These early plugs brought
about the founding of the
Heddon Company in 1901.
The Shakespeare Company
also formed about that time
and started making wooden
baits, one called the
Revolution and one called the
Bucktail Spinner. The company
said the Revolution bait was so
called because it revolutionized
fishing in the area where it was
developed and that it filled
good stringers while all other
kind of bait failed.
Around 1920, a Detroit
company produced a glass tube
in which you could place a live
minnow. This contraption had


OUTDOORS

Lloyd Jones

four treble hooks and a perfo-
rated cap on the tube, allowing
the water to circulate, which
the maker said would keep the
minnow alive all day. You
know if that had worked, there
would be no need to carry a
minnow bucket.
The Winchester Bait &
Manufacturing Company of
Winchester, Ind., made plugs
for a short time. The four-inch
Diving Dandy had glass eyes
and was very well crafted. It
was also made in a jointed
model. Little is known about
this company as they only
made a dozen or so different
baits and ceased production
about 1935. The rare Diving
Dandy is valued at close to
$200 today.
Some of those old baits real-
ly look ridiculous and comical.
The Hayes Bait Co., also of
Indiana, made a wooden plug
called The Go-Getter. This
strange-looking, dumpy little
plug had replaceable hooks and
painted eyes. It was made in
1927 and evidently all were
painted white.

Continued from 1B
in Clewiston starting Saturday, deflects the
praise to those around him.
"I'd like to give credit to all my coaches and
teammates from years before, for teaching me
and giving me courage to keep going," he said.
"He always did what we ask of him,"
Leaphart said. "He had to catch a lot last year,
which is not his first position. He had to pitch a
lot this year, and play shortstop, which aren't his
first positions, and he never said a word, just
went and did it."
When called to the mound, Baker didn't


Thousands of baits have
been produced through the
years and I am amused at some
of the names chosen for many
of them. How did the Dickens
Bait Company come up with a
name like the Liar Convertible
Minnow? And for really funny
names, try the Goofy Gus, the
Pull Me Slow, the Bassy
Gettum or the Leapin' Lena.
Others like the Kazoo
Wobble Tail, Barnacle Bill, Sea
Witch and the Under-Taker
would make any fisherman
laugh. The names are funny,
but to an antique fishing tackle
collector, they are a prize.
Most of these are very rare,
having been lost or destroyed
over the years.
My all-time favorite plug
was the River Runt made by
the Heddon Company. Sixty
years ago, it. was the best bass
catching plug in my tackle
box. I especially liked the
black-and-white shore minnow
color scheme. There was noth-
ing funny or weird about this
little plug because I caught a
lot of largemouth bass using it.
I want to thank Bill Rhine
for a very nice e-mail note. Bill
lives at a mobile home park on
Dinner Lake, so he doesn't
have far to go for good bass
fishing. I have taken several
big bass from Dinner Lake.
I enjoy hearing from read-
ers. You can e-mail me your
comments or personal stories
and pictures.

merely do serviceable work, either. Early in the
season, he combined with Evan Lewis on a no-
hitter, and tossed the Firemen's only complete
game of the year in the city tournament victory
that sent them to the finals.
Yet despite his success, he prefers playing his
natural corner infield positions, along with
catching. Ultimately, it will be his bat, and his
desire, that will take him as far as he'll go.
Leaphart, for one, doesn't believe that ride is
going to end any time soon.
"When I played, I knew kids who were awe-
some at 12, and they sort of peaked out, but I
don't think that's going to be the case with
him," he said. "He can go as far as he wants to."

loss on Saturday.

Continued from 1D
home on a misplay of Michael
Rhoden's drive into center field
and scored another in the third
when Jedil Torres drew a bases-
loaded walk to force home
Alfred Brown.
Otherwise, Crawford was
dominant, striking out nine. He
also contributed one of the
Clewiston runs when he walked
and scored on a wild pitch in
the first.
His opponent on the mound,
Tyrone Perry Jr., was the hard-
luck loser, giving up only four
hits all singles and strik-'
ing out seven in his own com-
plete-game performance.
The first Clewiston hit, a
blooper by Aaron Wade in the
third, proved costly for Avon
Park as a pair of walks loaded
the bases for Brock Ramer, the
last batter in the order, who was


hit by a pitch to receive a
painful RBI that tied the game
at 2-2.
Perry got out of another jam
in the fifth when he induced a
pair of fielder's choices and
struck out the final batter after
surrendering two walks to
begin the frame.
.Hart led off the top of the
sixth with a walk for Avon Park
and advanced to second on a
wild pitch, but aside from
Rhoden being hit by a pitch,
Crawford got out of the inning
without further damage.
Sammy Rios then led off the
bottom of the sixth with a solid
single to right and stole second,
advancing to third when the
throw bounced into center field.
Perry induced a pop-up to first
and got a strikeout to come to
the verge of forcing the game
into extra innings before he hit
Zachary Thomas and brought
the hero Perera to the plate.
