SEBRING Roseann
Kiefer had her bathroom
remodeled last summer. The
work took weeks, because it
was done a little at a time.
Wednesday morning, that
bathroom was demolished in
less than two minutes when
SpringLake Services pulled
down the entire 1,800-square-
foot house in 22 minutes flat.
"I was sentimental when I
was trying to decide if I should
save the house or tear it down,"
Kiefer said. "As I found more


and more wrong with the house,
I was ready to get over with."
She said that half of every-
thing in her garage was rusted
because of the leaks and the
house smelled like dirt.
"I'm really excited about
having a new house. I'm really
glad that I have this piece of
property on Lake Jackson."
Kiefer admitted that without
the help of her brother, Daniei.
Kiefer, who is a contractor in
Michigan, she would still be sit-
ting on a piece of empty proper-
ty. He will be handling the con-
struction of her new home.


Driver arrested in


another alleged


street race incident


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It was another
case of street racing and
although there were no injuries
this time around, police have
filed charges against at least
one of the drivers.
Charged
with racing on
the street was a
man identified
as Mario
Tejada Solis of
SAvon Park.
Street racing
SOLIS charges against
the second driver, Hector Solis,
still are pending.
The men are believed to be
brothers, however, Sebring
police still are trying to sort out
exactly who the drivers were as
well as a number of different
issues.


According to Sebring Police
Patrolman Brian Livesay, it all
began Thursday as he was
parked in the parking lot of the
old Eckerd Drug store about
11:45 p.m. completing paper-
work,.
Livesay looked up to see a
pair of cars stopped at the traf-
fic light at the intersection of
U.S. 27 and the Sebring
Parkway a white Honda and
a gray Toyota.
As they waited for the light
to turn green, Livesay reported
he could hear the Honda
revving its engine "in an appar-
ent attempt to get the other
vehicle to race him."
That driver later was identi-
fied as Mario Tejada Solis.
When the light turned green,
the cars accelerated at a high
rate of speed and Livesay gave

known locally as Snob Hollow.
Kiefer has resided there for nine
years.
\4hen the city of Sebring was
founded, there was a high rise
of land where Lakeview Terrace
now is. From there the elevation
dropped down into Lake
Jackson, where the shoreline

was an extensive and nasty
smelling swamp.
According to records at the
Sebring Historical Society,
George Sebring had planned to
build a hotel on the high ground
and dredge out the swampy area
to add a boat basin and aquatic
garden.
Those plans never material-
ized. Instead, in the mid-1920s,
the lake was dredged and the
fill pumped to the Snob Hollow
area, as well as Edgewater Point
further north, to create building
lots, and the road that circled
the lake.


The Depression had slowed
development in Highlands
County, but with the outbreak
of World War II a boom
occurred,' as nearly 8,000 new
residents poured into the area,
following the opening of
Hendrick's Field.
The Army built houses up
and down Crescent Drive.
Only as it turns out, the
organic fill used to form the
foundations'of these houses has -
not held up over time. Other

Endangered bird found breeding on Lake


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
LORIDA The Florida
snail kite, a rare and endangered
bird that reached the brink of
extinction in this country in the
1960s, has recently been spot-
ted in trees around Lake
Istokpoga.
Wildlife biologists from the
University of Florida have been


conducting research throughout
South Florida in an attempt to
discover new nesting areas.
They spotted the birds this
spring and sent Global
Positioning System coordinates
to Florida's Department of
Environmental Protection to
verify the nesting sites.
David Demmi, an environ-
mental specialist with DEP's


Bartow office, located four
nests at Istokpoga and docu-
mented them in photographs.
"I had never seen a snail kite
until I went out on Istokpoga to
take the photos, and I have been
working on these lakes for 15
years," Demmi said. "We need-
ed to document the locations so
that people using the lake and
working in these areas would


avoid them."
Protecting the nesting birds is
critical to their survival,
because snail kites have the
highest rate of nest failures
amongst all birds, at 66 percent.
They usually construct their
nests in bulrush and cattail
communities, although some
will nest in scrub and trees such
as bald and pond cypress.


Istokpoga
In all instances, the nest will
be over water in order to protect
them from predators.
Demmi calls his firsthand
experience seeing the birds fly-
ing to and from their nests
"very impressive. I was so glad
to see them there."
The Florida snail kite is so

Hill in serious
condition after
hit by train

SEBRING Stan Hill
of Lorida is in serious con-
dition in Tampa General
Hospital after being hit by
a train Thursday night.
According to Highlands
County sheriff's deputies,
Hill and his 20-year-old
son were fishing from the
bridge over Istokpoga
Creek at about 7-7:10 p.m.
Thursday when a passenger
train arrived. The bridge
sits along U.S. 98 just
across from the Hickory
Hammock Wildlife
Management Area.
The son managed to get
away, but Hill was clipped
by the access ladder on the
front of the locomotive. He
was airlifted with injuries.

Applications

The Tenth Circuit
Judicial Nominating

The governor has direct-
ed that the commission

timber sales

SEBRING Highlands
County will receive
$34.687.65 from the Avon
Park Air Force Range on
Tuesday, its portion of the
net receipts of timber sales
from the range.
By military regulations,
the counties where bases
are located will receive 40
percent of the net receipts
from logging sales on those
bases.


Permanent or portable? Circle stage debated


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Longtime resi-
dent A.J. "Bucky" Kahn has
continued his call for a stage on
the Circle in downtown
Sebring.
When it came up at
Monday's city council meeting,
council members agreed that a
stage would be nice. However,
the overriding opinion was that
it should be portable, rather
than a fixed asset.
"Most of the people I talk to
like the idea, but they want to
see a portable stage," council-
woman Margie Rhoades said.
Councilman John Griffin
agreed, saying the idea that a
moveable stage would be some-
thing he could support.
The city has sought input
from both Jon Spiegel, who
does the annual Christmas dec-

Lake Placid


adds new d
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Four
merchants have been appointed
to the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce Board of Directors
after the meeting of the board
Thursday.
Appointed are James Colley,
Pam Karlson, Vicki Spires, and
Debbie Malloy-Thorpe.
Colley is a certified finan-
cial planner and registered
investment advisor
He and his family have lived
in Lake Placid since 1985. He is
a graduate of Clarkson
University in Potsdam, N.Y.,
where he received a bachelor of
j,cjince degree in electrical and
-rcqiput.et- engineering. He
S' be I t signing building
automation systems for Siebe
Environmental Controls and
.Honeywell.
As his career developed, it
evolved steadily to the financial
side of the business. With focus
on a specialization in financial
planning and advisory, he com-
pleted the certified financial
planner professional education
curriculum from the College for
Financial Planning in Colorado.
He has been with Colley
Financial Services for over
seven years. The family busi-
ness includes his wife Susan, a
certified public accountant, and
his mother Frances, an enrolled
agent and accredited tax advi-
sor.
N Karlson, a native
Floridian, has been practicing
law in Florida for 12 years and
will soon be relocating her
Lake Placid office to a new
building on Dal Hall Boulevard
in 2006. The focus of her prac-
tice is real estate transactions,
probates and estate planning.
She graduated as valedicto-
rian from Lake Placid High
School in 1989.
Her community involvement
includes membership in the
Zonta Club of Highlands
County and she is a director on
the United Way Advisory Board
for Highlands County. She is
married to ERA Broker Greg
Karlson and they have a son
Grant and are expecting a baby
girl in October.
Her parents are Richard and


orations on the Circle, as well
as the Downtown Merchants
and Professional Association.
Spiegel, who also is on the
Sebring Special Events
Committee, has backed the idea
of a portable structure.
"You have more versatility
with a portable stage," he said.
"I do a lot of traveling and I
have seen a lot of festivals, and
they use portable stages. With
modern technology, a lot of the
equipment is much smaller than
it used to be."
He also noted that using a
modular set up, stages can be
constructed in different sizes
depending on how many
squares are used.
Spiegel also recommended
that the stage be higher than
recommended.
"In order for people to be
seen it really needs to be up


about 48 inches," he said.
As a member of the special
events committee, Spiege) said
that group would be willing to
put forward $1,000 towards the'
purchase or construction of a
moveable facility.
Rob Viera, president of the
DMPA, said he planned to bring
the issue before members of
that group at their July 6 gener-
al meeting.
"I want to hear what the
DMPA members have to say,
but speaking as just one voice,
one member of the organiza-
tion, I have to say I'm in favor
of a portablestage," he said.
Like others, Viera pointed to
the ability of moving the facili-
ty to where it might be needed
as one of the major assets of
such a facility.
"There are a lot of people
who think that everything is on


the Circle. Having a portable
one would open doors for us to
put stages different places for
different events," he said.
At Tuesday night's council
meeting, Marty Roepstorff,
another longtime resident,
remembered when there was a
band shell down by the lake
where the Highlands Art
League's Artists' Village now
sits.
"If you had a portable stage,
you could move it down there
when you needed it," Griffin
said.
Kahn adamantly disagreed.
He said everybody he had
talked to about the idea wanted
to have a permanent structure
on the Circle.
"They have one at Firemen's
Field and every time they bring
it out and try to set it up, it does-


n't work," he said
Kahn, who has offered to pay
for the construction of the stage
said he would not finance it if it
was not permanent.
"If they want a portable one
they're going to have to pay for
it. Plus, where are they going to
store it and who's going to pay
for having it brought out and
put away every time somebody
wants to use it?" he asked.
He has suggested the con-
crete platform should be 17 feet
long, and placed in the section
of the Circle between North
Commerce Avenue and
Ridgewood Drive.
"We just need to get people
to call Margie Rhoades and
John Griffin and tell them they
want something permanent up
there and not temporary," Kahn
said.

Staffing
Special needs shelter staff
got worn out last year, working
long shifts without any relief.
The emergency management
regions and the state are putting
together a medical task force to
help supplement some of these
shelters. If one area is hit, and
others left alone, staff from the
unaffected areas will go relieve
those who were hit, Nichols
said.
Forecasts
There is new Internet-based
weather prediction software
available: WeatherBug. Nichols
believes it might help
Highlands County.
"It looked pretty good," he
said.
While there is nothing wrong
with the system the county
uses, Nichols would like to
keep the county on the latest
and b't technology available.

Police r

* Highlands County report


Loeb charged

with forged
check
SEBRING On Monday,
June 20, the owner of a 2002
Toyota reported someone had
broken into it on June 19 and
taken a Bank of America
checkbook with eight checks
in it.
The burglar also took three
gospel music compact disks.
On Tuesday, June 21,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies contacted a Sebring
woman who said Aaron
Bradley Loeb, 31, of Sebring,
had been by her house and
gave her a check from that
checkbook to pay a debt to
her. It was made out to him
for $200, and signed.
The Sebring woman
became suspicious, contacted
the account holder using the
phone number on the check,
and learned it had been
stolen. So, she too called the
sheriff's office.
When deputies met up with
Loeb Wednesday, June 22,
and questioned him, he
allegedly admitted to giving it
to the Sebring woman. He
was arrested and charged with
uttering a forged instrument
and petit theft, with bail set at
$1,250.

Hawthorne

charged with
aggravated

domestic

battery
LAKE PLACID On
June 21, a Lake Placid
woman went to the a
Compass Avenue address in
Lake Placid to pick up her
child.
While there, she and Issac
Lily Hawthorne, 24, of Lake
Placid, got into a fight. It
turned physical. Allegedly,
Hawthorne hit her in the face
With his hand, grabbed' her by.
her arms and neck, and hit her
abdomen and right leg with
the handle of a broom.
Arrest reports said the


woman is 10 weeks pregnant,
and Hawthorne knows it.
She grabbed her child and
tried to leave, but, according
to sheriff's office reports,
Hawthorne pushed her into a
wall. Her child was unhurt,
reports said.
As she ran out of the house
and was placing the child in
her car, Hawthorne allegedly
came out and pointed a 9mm
handgun at her, allegedly
threatening to kill her if she
called police.
She got in the front seat,
locked the doors and drove
off. Highlands County sher-
iff's deputies tried to find
Hawthorne, but were unable
to locate him right away.
They did find him, howev-
er, and charged him with
aggravated domestic battery
on a pregnant woman and
aggravated assault with a
firearm. No bond was set.

Knotts charged

with hitting a
police officer
SEBRING At 7:43 a.m.
Wednesday, June 22, a
Sebring police officer went to
Brae Locke Apartments to
investigate a strange, person
standing in front of a school
bus, keeping it from moving.
The man, identified as
Bennie Cameron Knotts, 52,
of Sebring, refused to move
from in front of the bus after
two attempts to make him
move.
Knotts allegedly told the
officer not to touch him,
although he could touch the
officer. He then allegedly
poked the officer in the stom-
ach. After being told not to,
he said he could flick the offi-
cer, and flicked his badge.
The officer started to
restrain Knotts using chemi-
cal spray. Knotts bent down
to his knees and the officer
tried to handcuff him.
The officer told Knptt ;,to
stay down and not get up, but
Knotts tried to anyway. The
officer had to place Knotts in
a prone position with help
from another officer.
Knotts was treated and

Investigators

need help finding
owners
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Investigators
have found five more stolen
outboard motors, thanks to
information fromthe "car fish-
ing" group. .'o
These motors,, however, are
not from the Lake Bonnett
Campground.
Sheriff's Lt. John Chess is
asking anyone in the county
who may have noticed a miss-
ing outboard motor,, seen one
being removed, have informa-
tion about a missing motor in
their neighborhood, or have
purchased any major consumer
item hand-to-hand for cash in
recent weeks to contact
Detective Jeff Barcinas at the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office at 402-7200 or 402-
7250.
"If we don't hear from any-
one over the weekend, we could
have an open house," Chess
said. He would let people come
in to look at the stolen items to
identify them, or he would run
photographs in local newspa-
pers to see if people recognize
their stolen itemS.
Some of the owners may be
up north for the summer, he


released from Highlands
Regional Medical Center and
then taken to the Highlands
County Jail, where he was
charged with battery on a law
enforcement officer and
resisting an officer without
violence. Bail was set at "
$1,500.

Wacaster
charged with

aggravated
assault
SEBRING On
Wednesday, June 22, a 19-
year-old man found out
Kenneth R. Wacaster Jr., 21,
of Sebring, had allegedly
taken his camcorder and
pawned it to buy.drugs.
When he questioned
Wacaster about it, they began
wrestling in the room.
Wacaster said they could go
outside to settle it, so the 19-
year-old waited by the door
for Wacaster to get dressed.
While he waited, Wacaster
allegedly took out a pocket
knife, opened it and began
running toward the victim.
The victim ran away into
the front yard until Wacaster
stopped chasing him. He then
put the knife away.
The two men are related,
arrest reports said. Wacaster
was charged with domestic
violence aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon. Bond
was not set.


said.
The five young men arrested
Wednesday night Derrin
Davis, 20, Russell Eiland, 18,
Roderick Nash, 20, Matthew
Scheck, 20, and Lance Yunck,
17 have been unable to tell
investigators where the motors
came from.
Chess said the five allegedly
went out in separate groups
each night,: mixing partners,
running around neighborhoods
"car fishing" trying the locks
on car doors, trunk lids and
truck boxes to see if any were
open.
All except Yunck have been
charged with seven counts each
of burglary and grand theft, and
given $50,000 blanket bonds.
Yunck, contrary to previous
reports, has only single charges
each of burglary and grand
theft. The Lake Bonnet cases
involve stolen full-size motors,
trolling motors, fishing tackle,
and also golf carts, to transport
the other goods.
Among the rash of burglaries
reported in the last couple of
Weeks, Chess has been amazed
at the number of people who
didn't lock their cars, or the
neighbors who saw things
being taken, but didn't call to
report it until the next morning.
Stolen items in some cases have
included checkbooks, cellular
phones and laptop computers.

News-Sun
Within the last year alone,
several drug dealers and
weapons violators in Highlands
County have been prosecuted in
federal court, with most viola-
tions being large-scale traffick-
ing of crack cocaine, metham-
phetamine, or organized culti-
vation large amounts of mari-
juana.
These people were investi-
gated and arrested by the Multi-
Jurisdictional Task Force,
which continues to investigate
possession, sale and large scale
trafficking of narcotics. The
task force partnerships between
the Drug Enforcement
Administration; Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement; .Highlands,
Okeechobee and Glades
County sheriff's offices, and the
Avon Park, Lake Placid and
Sebring police departments has
helped identify violators whose
crimes rise to the level of feder-
al prosecution.
None of it would happen
without local support, though.
"Some of our most valuable
tips come from concerned citi-
zens," said Lt. Bobby Duncan
with the Highlands County'
Sheriff's Office. "They don't
like (seeing) the drugs in their
community."


Chess urges everyone in the
county to lock their car doors,
trunks and tool boxes at night,
as well as their homes and out-
buildings.

Stolen car not
connected
Chess said, contrary to earli-
er reports, that the stolen car
and stolen items recovered
Tuesday night in Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring Improvement
District were not connected to
the "car fishing."
It was connected, however,
to Aaron Bradley Loeb, 31, of
Sebring. He was arrested and
charged on Wednesday with
uttering a forged instrument and
petit theft in connection with a
stolen Bank of America check-
book.


Citizen support and partner-
ships help local law enforce-
ment get cases referred to the
U.S. Attorney. Some of the
most recent drug and weapons
cases now in federal court are:
Clifton Alexander, distri-
bution of crack cocaine;
John Henry Alexander,
distribution of crack cocaine;
Kevin Cheatwood, cultiva-
tion of marijuana;
Kenny King, distribution
of methamphetamine;
Ray King, distribution of
methamphetamine.
Corey Wayne Makris, dis-
tribution of methamphetamine;
M Lonnie Richard North,
possession of firearm by con-
victed felon;
Efrain Orduna and
Antonio Orduna, distribution of
crack cocaine;
Tiger Peoples, possession
of firearm by a convicted felon;
John Henry Pough, distri-
bution of crack cocaine;
Chauncey Donnell Strong,
distribution of crack cocaine;
and '
Zully Valdez, conspiracy
to distribute crack cocaine.
In each of these cases, the
defendants are likely to serve an
average of 10 years in federal
prison.

Highlands gets help replacing lost trees


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County's tree canopy got
severely reduced in last year's
three hurricanes. The Division
of Forestry may help put the
trees back.
On Tuesday, Mike Eisenhart
of Keep Highlands County
Beautiful, presented the county
commission with a grant agree-
ment, which it approved. A hur-
ricane relief grant from the
Florida Department 'of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services will assist local
landowners by helping pay to
replace lost trees.


These trees could always go
on public property, he said. This
is one of the first times a
Division of Forestry grant can
help restore trees on private
property.
Eisenhart said when people
apply to have trees replaced,
they can review a list of com-
mon tree species with instruc-
tion on how to care for the trees
to make sure they survive and
thrive.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart asked Eisenhart to
make sure people are told to
plant trees away from power
lines. Trees under or over
power lines were a major prob-


lem during last year's hurri-
canes.
There is no regulation right
now to prevent people planting
trees directly under or within
falling distance of power lines.
A draft ordinance has been
reviewed by the Natural
Resources Advisory
Commission and sent on to the
planning and zoning board. So
far, there has been no action on
it.
Allegedly, such an ordinance
could protect buried fiber optics
and power lines as well as water
and sewer mains from spread-,
ing root systems.


cific, they only would say the
horses were located in northern
and southeastern Polk.
Highlands County Health
Department Director Dr. Paula
Thaqi advised the public to
"remain diligent" in their per-
sonal mosquito protection
efforts.
These should include the "5
D's and 1 S" for prevention: '
Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood. For
many species, this is during the
dusk and dawn hours.
Dress Wear clothing
that covers all your skin.
DEET When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to mos-
quitoes, repellents containing
DEET are recommended. The
American Academy of


Pediatrics and other experts
suggest that it is acceptable to
apply repellent with low con-
centrations of DEET to infants
over 2 months old. It is not rec-
ommended to use on children
younger than 2 months old.
Infants should be kept
indoors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are present.
Always read the manufacturer's
directions carefully before you
put on a repellent.
Drainage Check your
home to rid it of standing water,
which is where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs. This includes
eaves and gutters, old tires,
empty plastic pots, boat tarps,
bird baths and plant trays.
Screens Make sure that
windows remain closed or are


sealed completely by screens at
night.
Thaqi said the Florida
Department of Health continues
to conduct statewide surveil-
lance for mosquito-borne ill-
nesses, including the West Nile
virus, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, St. Louis
Encephalitis, malaria and
dengue.

Avon Park council to have busy Monday session


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Historic
buildings, sexual predators,
code enforcement and new
development are among the
issues to be discussed by the
Avon Park City Council
Monday evening.
While Highlands County
commissioners look at prepar-
ing an ordinance to exclude
sexual offenders and sexual
predators from hurricane shel-
ters, the council will be consid-
er a companion measure.
The action fits with a plan
suggested by Preston Colby of
Florida Public Safety. He rec-
ommended that each of the
three municipalities adopt a
local ordinance that would pro-
hibit sexual offenders from
being housed with the general
population.
Colby has suggested that the
first violation of the ordinance
would be met with a charge of
trespassing. Subsequent viola-
tions would carry charges of
felony trespassing.
As of yet, no ordinance has
yet been crafted to deal with the
potential problem. City attorney
Mike Disler will be presenting
the council with language that
has come from a countywide
measure the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office wants the coun-
ty commission to endorse.
Disler wants to hear the
council's thoughts on adopting
a citywide ordinance to also


deal with the issue.
Sheriff Susan Benton sug-
gested to county commissioners
that sexual offenders could ride
out hurricafies in the lobby of
the county jail.

Other business
Representatives of the Avon
Park Historical Society will
address the council about desig-
nating the Episcopal Church of
the Redeemer as an historic
site.
"Right now we are trying to
make the oldest buildings in the
city historical sites," said his-
torical society President Jean
Jordan. "We want to get them
on the National Register of
Historic Places."
City Manager C.B. Shirey
will be presenting the council
with information about the ben-
efits of hiring a special master
to expedite code enforcement
cases more quickly than the
current approach of taking them
to court.
Among other things, the
council wants to know whether
the special master would have
to be an attorney.
In the past, council members
have expressed their unhappi-
ness at the tortoise-like pace it
has taken to resolve code viola-
tions.
Pamela Keil will update the
council about her efforts to
remove the Federal Emergency
Management Agency's trailers
from Avon Park. She is a hous-


ing coordinator who has been
working with FEMA and hurri-
canes victims who were forced
'out of damaged homes due to
last summer's hurricanes.
Keil said she hoped that task
would be accomplished by the
end of the month.
"Most of the people that were
renters have been relocated,"
she said.
Keil said she has been work-
ing to get additional funding for
repairs to some of the homes. In
the meantime, several displaced
residents have been moved out-
side the Avon Park city limits.
"We've put a couple families
in a mobile home park in
Sebring," Keil said. "The trav-
el trailers themselves also have
been moved out,"
As of Friday, about nine were
left inside the city limits.
Councilman George Hall
wants return to the issue of the
renaming of the city streets.
Hall said the switch to new
street names had cost the city
$30,000 in signs alone.
Conversations county commis-
sioners left him to conclude that
"they were as much in the dark
about this as we were."
In other action, the council
will look at preliminary plat
approval for the Grand Oaks at
Lake Damon and Twin Lakes
Pointe developments. They also
will also consider entering into
a collective bargaining agree-
ment with the Police
Benevolent Association.


Jaxson's zoning coming back to county commission


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Tuesday,
county commissioners will
reconsider a zoning request
from a Lake Placid restaurant.
The owners of Jaxson's, 443
Lake June Road, have pur-
chased the property next to it.
Some residents have taken this
as a sign that the restaurant is
expanding.
In the past, attorney Bert
Harris III has assured county
commissioners that his client -
Phoenix Two of Highlands
County is not expanding the
restaurant. The corporation,
owned by Don and Connie
Davies, purchased the addition-
al square footage in order to


apply for more intense zoning
for the restaurant.
Harris hopes deed restric-
tions he devised will alleviate
the concerns county commis-
sioners have had about chang-
ing the zoning from B-2
. Commercial to B3-3
Commercial. That would make
it possible for the restaurant to
make sales on its back patio.
Commissioners have
expressed a willingness to vote
in favor of the zoning change if
the owners agree to certain con-
ditions.
One would be accepting deed
restrictions on the property. The
other would be to have a unity
of title between the restaurant
and the house the Davies own


next door.
Commissioners have also
asked for buffers between the
business and residences and no.
external amplification. They
want to review plans for light-
ing and parking as well as any
planned uses for the second
house.
On Friday, Harris said addi-
tional parking will be in front of
the second house. That would
be vacated if the Davies find
other land to use for parking.
Commissioners, especially
Commissioner Bob Bullard of
Lake Placid, wanted to be sure
the second house will not be
sold in the future. Harris
assured them it wouldn't.

SEBRING

Ruth Morris con-
verged on the
Kenilworth Lodge
June 18 for a family reunion.
A resident of Sebring since
1993, Morris now lives at the
Kenilworth Care and
Rehabilitation Center. She had
asked her 12 children and their
- families to visit her.
Ten of her children came to
Sebring, along-with grandchil-
dren, great-grandchildren and
great-grandchildren. Overall,
the gathering drew about 90 of
her descendants.
Two children were unable to
attend due to prior commit-
ments.
Morris' children range in age
from 51 to 69. Four of them
have produced fifth genera-
tions.
Morris and her husband,


Kenneth, raised their large fam-
ily in Watkins Glenn, a town in
the Finger Lakes Region of
New York. They moved to
Homestead in 1959.
After Mr. Morris had a stroke
in 1988, she moved to
Mansfield, Ohio, to be closer to
her twins. She did not like the
cold winters, though, and want-
ed to return to Florida.
In 1993,. her daughter and
son-in-law moved to Sebring
from Homestead and became
involved in operating the camp
store at Highlands Hammock
State Park. She arrived that year
to join them.
Over the years family mem-
bers have settled in many states
-- New York, Ohio, Indiana,
Maryland and North Carolina.
Five of the families live in
Florida.

ice provider is most patients

State hospital committee and C. of C. meeting


EDITOR'S NOTE: The
News-Sun has been publishing
news about Highlands County
since 1927 as a treat for our
readers. We have gone through
the archives and pulled stories
that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash from the Past of Sept. 30,
1938.
A combined meeting of the
state hospital committee and
members of the chamber of
commerce was held Thursday
evening at the Jacaranda Hotel.
With Walter Betts in the chair
reports were made on the
progress made towards securing
the state hospital branch here.
Mr. Betts stated a number of let-
ters had been received from
members of the legislature,
either giving their unqualified
support or expressing a favor-
able attitude.
D. G. Perry reported on the
trip made by himself and others
to Tallahassee and Jacksonville
to contact legislators. He stated
he understood that 20 sites had


been submitted but the one here
in Avon Park is the only one
with no strings attached and
would be given free to the state.
He added that much missionary
work is still to be done and con-
siderably more money will have
to be expended.
A. C. Slaughter, secretary of
the Orlando Chamber of
Commerce stated that Orlando
and Orange county is not seek-
ing the hospital, they have the
tuberculosis sanitarium and
pledged the full support of
Orange county behind the
efforts of Avon Park to secure
the institution and promised all
the help, possible.
Mr. Slaughter later spoke
briefly on the Orange Blossom


Trail Association and then, on
request, told something of the
workings of the Orlando cham-
ber of commerce. He said they
have a publicity and promotion
committee which plans ahead
on a long term basis. All the
business firms in the city are
interested and derive many ben-
efits from their membership.
A live city will have a live
chamber of commerce and in a
dead city the chamber of com-
merce will be dead, he said. A
good chamber of commerce
requires much hard work and
you cannot pass the buck to
your neighbor. The idea of a
good chamber of commerce
must be sold.
Speaking of conventions he
said that Orlando is seeking all
it can get as conventions in the
city benefits everyone and leave
thousands of dollars among the
merchants and business houses
and they in turn get it into cir-
culation.
The merchants are saved
considerable money each year,
he said, by the working of a

secret committee which passes
on all advertising schemes
offered by transients. Before
anyone is allowed to solicit they
have to be okayed by this com-
mittee through the chamber of
commerce. The merchants are
saved money in other ways and
a chamber of commerce can't
give business too much service,
he said.
In relation to tourists, the
chamber classifies and answers
a large number of letters and the
various businesses, hotels, real
estate men, etc., who might be
interested are notified.
Get behind the chamber of
commerce, Mr. Slaughtered
urged, put it over and it will
function for you. The dues are
investments and should not be
considered donations, he said.
He also stressed the necessity of
courtesy at all times to winter
visitors and suggested that
everyone who meets the public
should be taught this.

Mall to host special racing event staged by Coca-Cola


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The 2005
Coca-Cola Racing Family Tour
will be rolling in to Lakeshore
Mall on Wednesday.
"It's a special thing that
Coca-Cola put together and
they've been traveling the
country," mall manager Paul
Loy said.
There will be interactive


games, a radio-controlled car
demonstrations, photo opportu-
nities plus appearances by
Panoz Racing, the Sebring
International Raceway as well
as the Coca-Cola Harley
Davidson motorcycles.
"The Cub Scouts will run an
event for radio-controlled cars
in the old arcade. They'll also
be selling hot dogs and Cokes
out there," Highlands Coca-


Cola Cold Drink District Sales
Manager John Higgins said.
Beverly Singley, of Cub
Scout Pack 818 who will be
doing the cooking, said the
money will go to help the pack
purchase an equipment trailer
from their brother Boy Scoul
organization.
"We want to buy the trailer so
we can carry our camping gear
when we go to places like the


Flaming Arrow Reservation.
It's perfect for us but getting too
small for the Boy Scout troop,"
she explained. "Then the Boy
Scout troop can buy a bigger
equipment trailer to meet their
needs."
Panoz Racing instructor
Buzzy Roberts is slated to bring
out one of the Panoz GT cars
like the ones that run the series'
season opener as a support race


for the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring.
The games are contained in a
special trailer nicknamed the
"Pit Boss." Inside are a half
dozen 35-inch video screens.
Two people per screen can com-
pete in a virtual race on the
Sony Playstation version of
NASCAR Thunder. The motor-
cycles are customized eight-
foot long Harley-Davidson


Road Kings with sidecars
shaped like a Coke bottle.
Made by Craftsman
Industries, the sidecars double
as coolers for Coca-Cola.
"We won't be doing that at
the mall though," said
spokesman Josh Pate.. "We'll
use them for a photo op."
That means people will be
able to actually sit on the cus-
tomized bike.

jack it up, which cost approxi-
mately $4,000. And then she
needed to fix all the cracks and
the roof, as well as paint the
interior and attend to other
problems caused by the sinking
of the building. All for more


thousands of dollars.
Last November, when cracks
began reappearing and the back
door would no longer shut,
Kiefer had to send for the engi-
neers once again.
The news was bad.
Over time, the muck beneath
Kiefer's house had dried out
and then been resoaked, over
and over. When the muck dried,
during times of drought, it com-
pressed, causing the house to
sag.
With heavy rain, the
resoaked muck would raise and


the house shift back, adding
more stress. Then, last year's
hurricane season raised the
water table of the lake, which
hastened the process and
brought matters to a head.
More problems were discov-
ered at points where additions
had been built onto the house.
Some of the additions had been
intentionally constructed, in
order to match up to the parts
which had already sunk. There
was no way to make correc-
tions.
Kiefer was looking at having


to put in pins every three feet,
and pilings sunk to 30 feet, and
there was no guarantee they
would work. Just to have
anchoring pins and the pilings
put in place would have cost
$70,000 to do the entire home.
This would still cause more
cracking ifi the interior, which
would have brought the entire
figure to more than $100,000.
She struggled with the deci-
sion in the beginning. Her
mother had died a year ago, and
it was hard to let go of memo-
ries. But as she packed all of her
belongings from her home into


storage units, and the cracks
widened, it became easier to let
go.
"It's not too sad," said
Bonnie Kesselring, a friend of
Kiefer's who works with her at
Lampe & Kiefer Hearing Aid
Center in Sebring, where Kiefer
is the owner of the business.
"She's sick of the dirt and the
headaches, and looking forward
to the new."
Once the house is removed,
contractors will excavate, the
organic muck and remove it.
Then they'll bring in clean
sand, backfill the area, and


compact it for a new founda-
tion, having raised the grade by
two feet. This will cost $40,000.
Even though her home was
insured, her policy does not
cover anything underground,
such as muck. "It's like a pre-
existing condition, and insur-
ance doesn't cover it," Kiefer
said.
Kiefer plans to build a 2 1/2
story home totaling 4,000
square feet. The foundation
work will start July 8 and
Kiefer hopes to be in her new
home by the end of November.

named because it feeds almost exclusively on
apple snails. In the United States, it resides only
in peninsular Florida on flooded marshes, shal-,
low lakes and along freshwater courses the
habitat of apple snails. The semi-nomadic, sight-
feeding snail kite is one of the world's most spe-
cialized medium-sized raptors.
Historically, snail kites were found from the
Everglades to just southeast of Tallahassee, but
wetland drainage and development eliminated or
altered its shallow freshwater habitat. The species
was listed as endangered in 1967, when its num-
bers plunged to 20.
Because of its dependence on a single food
source, many factors affect the snail kite's ability
to survive. Apple snails commonly adhere to bul-
rush, cattail and pickerelweed stems where they
feed on algae. When these plants become
extremely dense, snail kites are unable to pene-
trate the thick mass to feed.
During drought conditions, apple snails bury in
mud bottoms and become dormant until favor-
able water levels return. The snail kites are then
forced to leave and try to find a more suitable.
area to feed. With development and wetland
drainage, these areas are rapidly diminishing.
Even natural seasonal changes can threaten
.'. -nesting success. During high or low water fluctu-
ation periods, nests constructed in bulrush and
cattails often collapse into the water for lack of
structural support.
If we clean it, they will come
Studies have shown that lake drawdowns and
habitat enhancement projects afford long-range
benefits for the snail kite, even though they may
disturb them in the short run. Lake drawdowns
have been proven to be beneficial for sediment
reduction, desirable plant life, gamefish abun-
dance, angler success rates and overall water
quality. /
Lake Istokpoga, 'designated a Fish
Management Area in 1998, has received much
attention, funding and work from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A multi-
million dollar habitat restoration project in 2001
included a drawdown, and cleanup and removal
of thousands of acres of tussocks and other inva-
sive plant species.
While the primary goal of the cleanup is to
improve spawning grounds for fish and increase
gamefish health and abundance, it appears that
reducing clogged vegetation helps all types of
wild birds. In the case of the snail kites, apple
snails flourish in the more widely dispersed
marsh vegetation.
Lucky observers who see a snail kite in action
will notice a bird resembling a small osprey fly-
ing over shallow marshes scattered with shrubs
and trees. When it spots a snail, it swoops down,
extends its legs into the water and briefly hovers
while it grasps the snail with its talons. While still
in flight, or after landing on a nearby perch, the
kite uses its thin, hooked bill to pull the snail

from its shell.
This narrow, down-curved bill has developed
through evolution for feeding on snails and little
else. It is never used for hunting and gathering;
the kite seizes its prey with its toes, just as the
osprey hooks fish with its talons.
Although the Florida snail kite population is
now estimated to number about 1,000, the bird is
still listed as endangered, because their popula-
tion fluctuates-so much due to habitat conditions.
It is illegal to disturb nesting birds in any way.
Even members of Florida's agencies who manage
and protect their habitat cannot approach a nest.
Demmi had to take his photos from a boat at long
range.
If you are on or near the lake and think you
may see a kite, look for a medium-sized bird of
prey with a distinctive white patch at the base of
the tail, ending in a dark band with a narrow
white edge. Males are uniformly dark gray;
females and juveniles are brownish 'with a
streaked breast and light eyebrow and cheek
patch.
If it is a Florida snail kite, keep your distance
and realize what a privilege it is to have such a
rare bird back in your midst.


chase, calling on other law
enforcement agencies.
He caught the cars again on
U.S. 27 at the intersection of
Sun 'N Lake Boulevard.
"I pulled behind the white
Honda," Livesay wrote in his
narrative. "The driver of the
vehicle, Tejada, began to pull
from the far left lane to the far
right lane yielding to me."
However, the gray Toyota,
driven by Hector Solis, contin-
ued north on U.S. 27 for a time,
finally pulling in to the parking
lot of the Kegel Bowling
Center. He then drove back out
onto the highway, went through
a turnaround on U.S. 27 and
pulled into the parking lot of the
doctors' complex across the
street frdm Kegel where a
Highlands County sheriff's
deputy made a traffic stop.
When Livesay asked Mario
Tejada Solis for his driver
license and registration, he
advised the Sebring man he was
being stopped for racing on the
highway.
"He spontaneously uttered
that he should not have done
that," Livesay wrote.
Mario Tejada Solis then told
Livesay he did not have a
Florida driver license, only one
from his native country of Peru.
But the 20-year-old Sebring
man didn't have that license
with him either.
He also reportedly told the
officer his name was Mario R.
Solis. But when Livesay
checked the information
through dispatch, he was told
no license was shown for that
name.
A search of Tejada's car also
uncovered a small brown iden-
tification holder. Livesay said
although the alien registration
card had a picture that appeared
to be Tejada, the name on the
card was Mario Rivas. The offi-
cer also uncovered what he
deemed to be a false Social
Security card in the Rivas
name.
Later, Livesay found a wallet
with a couple of Visa credit
cards, one in the name of Mary
Winter the other in the name of


Donald Aubrey. Tejada said the
wallet was not his.
Tejada was charged both
with street racing and having no
valid driver license. He was
booked into the Highlands
County Jail where he was
released on $500 bond.
It was last Sunday when a
street racing incident ended in
tragedy after one of the partici-
pants hit the railroad crossing
on State Road 17 just north of
the Sebring city limits and lost


control of his car.
Killed were 20-year-old
Daniel Mercado and his. 19-
year-old girlfriend Irenesse
Mercado.
The driver in the second car
involved in that incident, 19-
year-old Luis Alexander
Zapata, has been charged with
two counts of vehicular homi-
cide and a single count of rac-
ing on the highway.
He remains free on $2,500
bond.

TOFFIN9 IT
WITH TUFFLEY


Christopher Tuffley


Getting


the point
This week, I did no heavy
lifting, or long distance run-
ning, but by the end of the
assignment I was soaked
through with sweat and a nerv-
ous wreck.
That's because I actually
drew a tattoo on another per-
son's arm using permanent
ink and a very sharp needle.
Wesley Pate, who is a tattoo
artist at T.A.T.S. in Lakeshore
Mall, bravely (kindly, foolish-
ly, masochistically) offered up
his arm for me'to practice on,
while T.A.T.S. owner, a tattoo
artist in his own right, Eric
Labadie, supervised.
I have to say that giving a
tattoo is a whole lot easier than
getting a tattoo.
Not that I have firsthand
knowledge this is one body
that's going out of this world
the same way it came into it,
free of billboards, advertising
or even fine art. But I didn't
feel a thing, except anxious,
when I worked, while there
were a couple of times Pate
tensed up.
Of course there also was the
time he bellowed, "Ow," in a
voice that could be heard
down in the Sears Automotive
Center, causing me to jump in
alarm and nearly tattoo a line
up his arm.' But he was only
kidding that time, to the
delight of a handful of onlook-
ers.

Pizzano's serves various



speciality pizzas, grinderz


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Sebring residents Andrew and Jane Crivello (from left) enjoy lunch at Pizzano's with Nancy Searer and
Douglas Crivello. "This is our first time here, and it has our winning vote," Douglas Crivello said.


POINT
Continued from 13A
I hadn't expected to tattoo a
living person when I got this
assignment, by the way. I
thought I'd be working on an
orange, or rawhide chew toy or
something meant to resemble
real skin, so I was shocked
when Labadie pulled out a
razor and shaved Pate's arm
just above the wrist, pointing
out the area to me.
Within an elaborate, larger
design, there was a blank spot,
with a small capital letter B
near the bottom.
It turns out Pate had been
planning to add a design to the
space which also would cover
the letter, and Labadie had
talked him into letting me do
the honors.
Lucky me. Lucky him.
Once the arm is shaved and
cleaned, the design is either
drawn freehand, using felt-tip
markers, or a stencil is trans-
posed onto thermal paper and
applied directly to the skin.
Then Labadie showed me
how to load a sterilized, dis-
posable needle into the tattoo


machine. It's not too different
from loading a shell into a
shotgun.
The machine itself, looks
like a miniature Rube Goldberg
machine with wires and coils
all interconnecting, and is
based on an electric engraving
pen invented by Thomas
Edison.
The business end, the end
with the needle, looks like a
thick steel ball point pen and is
about an inch in diameter and
about four to five inches long.
It is connected to a power pack
providing electrical current in
the same way points did on
automobiles before fuel injec-
tion. This means there is oscil-
lating current which rapidly,
and repeatedly, drives the nee-
dle in and out of the skin, typi-
cally 50 to 3,000 times a
minute.
The needle slides in and out
of a hollow tube, which is
filled regularly with ink, just
like an old fashioned quill pen.
The ink then rides the needle
into the skin. The ink is poured
into small containers, and what'
is not used is thrown away.
. The machine operates with a
foot pedal, leaving the tattoo


artist's hands free for work.
The customer sits, with feet
up when possible, and the artist
uses a wheeled stool, to get up
close.
The body part has to be
gripped firmly, with the skin
drawn tight. Then you apply
the needle.
Outlines are done first, then
dark colors added, and finally
the lighter colors added for
highlight.
I worked only in black,
because Pate had chosen a trib-
al design.
I was told to start at the out-
side corners and work always
toward the middle and in the
same direction.
A lot of ink is released, and
in seconds, you can no longer
see the outline. Paper towels
and green soap are used to
keep the area wiped off. So
you work a bit, pause, wipe,
and work some more.
I found the outline easier to
do than the fill-in work, which
surprised me. That was
because the fill-in work is done
by making small circles, over
and over, like filling in a color-
ing book.
But that means you have to

News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Value, taste,
and service: That's Pizzano's
promise.
Sam Marhi may be new to
the area, but not to the pizza
business. For 15 years he's
owned pizza parlors in Detroit.
In Florida, there's Lake Wales
and now Sebring, where he
plans to set the standard.
"I have plenty of experience
and all our doughs and sauces
are made from scratch. Nothing
is pre-made. Everything is done
in-house. That's what sets us
apart," Marhi said.
At Pizzano's, you can dine
in, carry out, or call for a deliv-
ery. There are 15 toppings, five


press down with firm, but gen-
tle, pressure and the skin
moves underneath the needle,
which is a little creepy.
One problem I had was not
pressing down hard enough.
That may not sound too bad,
but it meant the ink wasn't get-
ting into the skin, so when I
wiped the excess away, the
result was nonexistent, or too
light.
Trust me, if you want to be a
success as a tattoo artist, it's
best to get it right on the first
pass. Repeatedly going over
the same ground not only
hurts, it damages the skin and
can lead to scarring. You'll
never get repeat customers.
In fact, neither Pate nor
Labadie seemed.to think I had
a future in the field, although I

Highlands unemployment




rate takes another drop


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
Highlands County's unemployment rate
just keeps shrinking.
The latest numbers released by the
Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation,
Labor market statistics show a 3.4 percent
unemployment rate for the month of May.
That is better than the 4.2 percent in May
2004 and the 3.6 percent joblessness regis-
tered in April of this year. The report con-
tinues to show the actual numbers of people
employed in the labor force continues to
increase as well.
In May of last year there were 35,524
members of the 37,093 workforce on the
job, that swelled to 40,111 out of 41,512
last month.
The 3.4 percent joblessness is the best in
the Heartland of Florida and also ranks as
the lowest ever recorded in Highlands
County.
The figures also undercut both the
statewide and national unemployment aver-


ages.
The unemployment numbers come at a
time where there are continuing reports of
business expansions and new startups in the
county. Officials of Focus of Tampa are
preparing to hire staff for the new Arby's
restaurant to open in Avon Park.
That has been remodeled from a former
Hardee's restaurant location on U.S. 27
near the intersection of State Road 64.
Owners had hoped to have it open during
June but were delayed by construction
issues.
Also ready to break ground is the new
Denny's to be located adjacent to the
Holiday Inn Express on U.S. 27 in Sebring.
Officials of ZMC also plan to start work
next month on the Residence Inn,
Highlands County's newest hotel.
Under construction near the intersection
of U.S. 27 and Shumacher Road is the
newest Highlands County location of
Walgreen Drug Store.
Florida's statewide unemployment aver-


age was good, coming in under the nation-
al average while the Sunshine State led the
top 10 states in the rate of employment
growth.
In fact, last month's 4.0 statewide job-
lessness rate was the lowest experienced by
Florida since February 2001. Statistics
show the 349,000 Floridians out of work is
the lowest number since September 2001.
Professional and business services con-
tinued to lead the super sectors in employ-
ment growth over the year adding more
than 57,000 jobs. Education and health
services posted the next greatest job gains
along with trade, transportation and utili-
ties.
Employment in the leisure and hospitali-
ty industry continued to exhibit solid, over-
the-year job growth. Officials report
employment in that sector has shown such
.increases since June 2002. Accommodation
and food services accounted for most of the
job gains.

Promises, all of them, should be kept


I gave a lot of
thought about whether
or not I should devote
this week's column to
some final thoughts
about the aftermath of


LAURA'S LOOK
Laura Ware


Terri Schiavo's death.
I considered that some peo-
ple might be tired of the tale. I
also wondered if the kindest
thing would be to leave the
family in peace.
There has been an over-
whelming amount of press
about Terri, even after her
untimely death. Why add to it?
But the more I thought about
it, the more I was compelled to
pen a last thought or two as the
story winds if not to a close,
perhaps to a new chapter.
Sadly, I do not see a future of
peace or closure for the
Schindlers, Terri's parents, or
her husband, Michael. These
people are so far apart they
make the Republican and
Democratic parties look like
blood brothers.
It is Michael's actions I wish
to speak of today. Specifically,
the words he had inscribed Terri's grave marker. He marks



Great service at

her date she "departed
this Earth" as Feb. 25,
1990 the day she
suffered brain damage.
He puts the date she
died of dehydration,


March 31, 2005, as the day she
was "at peace." To top things
off, he has added one additional
sentence to the marker: "I kept
my promise."
Choosing a grave marker can
be an emotional decision. I
know this. It is something that
you and fellow loved ones will
look at when they come to visit
and pay their respects. Even so,
I would think that a man who
was apparently so prepared for
this would have given some
consideration to others besides
himself.
Let's take the two dates for
starters. Schiavo says Terri
"departed this Earth" the day
she suffered whatever it was
that caused her brain damage.
In other words, as far as he is
concerned, she really died that
day.
What of his claims in court
that he needed the money from
the malpractice suit to care for


his disabled wife? What of the
touching story the media has
put out that he went into nurs-
ing so he would be better pre-
pared to care for her? ,If she
were dead, why all that? Or is it
more convenient now for him to
think that if she died in 1990, he
did not orchestrate her death in
2005?
Maybe all this also makes the
second statement real to him. "I
kept my promise." He claims
that Terri wanted to die if she
were in this condition. Few
people came forward to support
his claim, and other people said
that Terri felt the opposite way.
Can you keep a promise you
never made?
But OK, let's give Schiavo
the benefit of,the doubt for a
few minutes. Apparently he
takes great pride in keeping a
promise to his wife, given he's
had it carved into her grave
marker for people to see in
years to come. But if it was so
important for him to keep his
promises, why did he not keep
all of them?
Which promises do I speak
of? The ones you hear in almost


every wedding ceremony. You
know, "For better, for worse, in
'sickness and in health." You
know. Those promises.
Those promises seem to have
been forgotten as he took up
with another woman, fathering
a child with her. Marriage
vows? What marriage vows?
"Laura," you may be asking
me, "What, did you really
expect him to remain without
female companionship all these
years?"
Why, yes, that is what I
expected. After all, keeping a
promise to his wife is such a big
deal to him. Why does one
promise count more than the
others?
If he were going to be honest,
he would have inscribed on the
marker, "I kept the promises I
wanted to keep."
Yes, it sounds less noble. But
it is far more accurate.

pension really works

Veterans, let's talk about pensions.
If you qualify, the Veterans Administration
will pay you money you have earned for serv-
ing our nation. If you are a spouse of a
deceased veteran, you may also qualify.
So how do you know if you are qualified?
First, let's look at what a pension is.
A VA pension is a VA program to provide a
level of established financial support to
wartime veterans or their widows, based on
financial need. If you follow the chart below
you will see the maximum amount the VA says
you should be getting each year.
So let's take a look at the chart. (Note:
These dollar amounts are from 2003.)
Veteran $10,162
Veteran with one dependent $13,309


VETERANS
AFFAIRS
DAVE SIMPSON


Veteran house bound $12,419
Veteran house bound with one dependent $15,566
Veteran needing aid and attendance $16,955
Veteran needing aid, attendance with one dependent $20,099
Note: If you are in need of aid and attendance or home bound,
make an appointment to go see the veterans services office. No
matter how much money you make.
The chart shows several categories a veteran can be considered
as. For example: If you are a veteran needing aid and attendance,
the VA says you should make no less than $16,955. If you need aid
and attendance and have a dependent, then you should make no
less than $20,099. If you are a veteran with one dependent you
should make no less than $13,309.
How does this work? First, you must add all income received;
then subtract all medical expenses; get your total, and if you bring
in less than the amount on the chart above then you are eligible for
a pension.
For example: Mr. Jones is a World War II veteran. He is married
so he has one dependent. His Social Security check each month is
$500. His wife's Social Security check is $450 a month. He gets a
small pension from XYZ Company of $250 a month. This equals
$1,200 a month in income. He and his wife paid $350 a month on
medications. They paid $50 a month on health insurance. So
together they paid $400 a month on medical care. Take the $1,200
they made (income) and subtract $400 they spent (medical care)
and you get $800. This $800 is what you use to calculate your pen-
sion from the VA. So you look at the chart and see a veteran with
one dependent should have $13,309 income annually or $1,109
monthly. Mr. and Mrs. Jones have $800. So we take $1,109 and
subtract $800. Mr. and Mrs. Jones could receive a check for about
$309 a month from the VA.
This is a little confusing I know. Remember this: If you are
close to the above amount or you have high medical bills that you
pay out of pocket, you should see the veteran services office. Call
for an appointment, please.
It is the DAV's goal to help veterans get the benefits we fought
for serving our country.
The numbers to the Highlands County Veteran Services Office
are: Sebring 402-6623, Avon Park 453-7538, ext. 6623, or Lake
Placid 465-2464, ext. 6623. God bless each of you and God bless
this great nation.

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations will conduct an
accreditation survey of Highlands Regional Medical Center on July 20-22, 2005.
The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with
nationally established Joint Commission standards.The survey results will be used to
determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded
the organization.
Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality and safety-of-care issues and
the safety of the environment in which care is provided.Anyone believing that he or
she has pertinent and valid information about such matters may request a public infor-
mation interview with the Joint Commission's field representatives at the time of the
survey. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance
to the accreditation process. Requests for a public information interview must be made
in writing and should be sent to the Joint Commission no later than five working days
before the survey begins.The request must also indicate the nature of the information
to be provided at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to:

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

A word to

the wise
"A word to the wise is
sufficient." I heard this
proverb from my parents
often when I was growing
up. Sometimes the words
and meaning blurred togeth-
er, but eventually, they hit
home mostly through
example.
My mom adjusted to my
father's changing work
schedule. During the week
of his afternoon shift, we
had a hot meal as a family at
lunch time. When he worked
other shifts, different adjust-
ments came into play.
When he couldn't accom-
pany us to certain functions,
we complained and com-
pared our family to those
whose dad was along. Mom
explained that she missed
him, too. But, this was the
work God had supplied.
Then she'd tell me,
"Someday when you get
married, don't compare
yourself with other wives.
You come alongside your
husband in his work and
accept it as part of your mar-
riage."
As I grew in my under-
standing, I came to appreci-
ate the value inherent in the
adage, "A word to the wise
is sufficient." So what then
is wisdom and who is this
"wise" one who needs only
to hear the truth once?
Wisdom can be described
as knowing.how to take
knowledge and apply it prac-
tically, responsibly and pro-
ductively. It is applying
truth.
I saw how my Mom
responded to my Dad's work
schedule as a blessing with
all of its inconveniences -
and made our home function
around it. Our whole family
grew in acceptance, respect
and grace.
The one who is wise
makes decisions in light of
the future, not just the pres-
ent. He watches how others
choose, listens to sound
teaching and then takes steps
to walk in a similar way for
an outcome that blesses.
Another look at the word
"wisdom" in Hebrew reveals
a "hearing heart." When
one's heart is open to hear-
ing truth, that person com-
prehends the meaning and
takes action.
"Then you will understand
what is right and just and
fair every good path. For
wisdom will enter your
heart, and knowledge will be
pleasant to your soul.
Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard
you." (Proverbs 2: 9-11,
NIV)
So when one hears the
word of wisdom and gains
understanding, receiving and
responding, he is wise and
that word is enough.
God wants us to be wise.
In James 1:5 we're told that
if we lack wisdom we should
ask God and he will give it
generously. In James 3: 17,
we recognize godly wisdom
because it is pure, peace-lov-
ing, considerate, submissive,
full of mercy and good fruit,
impartial and sincere.
And, isn't it interesting,
that when Ken and I mar-
ried, I did have to adjust to a
work schedule that didn't
give my husband every
weekend off. Sometimes I
had to attend Saturday func-
tions alone or creatively
work family times around an
unpredictable calendar.
Scripture and mom's
words ring true "A word to


the wise is sufficient." Selah.

Too many


people just


walk away

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
Abandoned cars are a
problem even in
Highlands County.
Inevitably time
and miles take their
toll until it's no longer practi-
cal to make repairs. The
accepted practice is to trade
them in, or head for the junk-
yard. But an increasing number
of people simply park their
broken vehicles at the side of
the road ... and walk away.
Assistant Law Enforcement
Bureau Commander J.P. Fane
(an 11-year veteran with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office) said "sometimes aban-
doned cars are reported and
sometimes a deputy just spots
them on routine patrol." Either
way, they follow specific pro-
cedures. First the vehicle iden-
tification number is checked to
be sure no crime has been
committed using the car, and
that it is not stolen.
"Whether it's a piece of junk
or a newer car, we do a cursory
check and place a red tag on it
with a date and time. The
Florida State Statute says
(obstructing traffic on a right
of way) they have.48 hours to
get this car off the roadway or
it will be towed at the owner's
expense," Fane said.
If the car is stolen or was
involved in a crime, the agency
with jurisdiction is contacted.
Once it's towed in, it's
processed for evidence, and the
people involved are located.
Any items found in the car are
checked in as evidence and
then returned to the rightful
owner.
"I make no judgment as to
people's situations. Sometimes
they're trying to do a repair
and then everything just goes
downhill. If it is not a crime
scene, but simply abandoned,
then one of the five towing
companies we use is stuck with
all the procedures required by
our state," Fane said.

Contrary to popular belief,
towing abandoned cars is not a
profitable business. The laws
which are designed to protect
the vehicle owner provides no
compensation for the towing
company other than the little
they can sell cars for after a
drawn-out process.

the business for 30 years.
"The highway patrol, sher-
iff's office and city police use
about five of us towing compa-
nies on a rotation basis. We all
have a saying: 'I wonder how
much this one is going to cost
us.' The car's usually on the
side of the road and it's a haz-
ard. Just think ... as you're
driving along, you don't expect
an abandoned car to be sitting
there. Sometimes they're par-
tially on the road and people
have to swerve to miss them,"


Celentano said.
According to the 2002 law,
specific steps must be fol-
lowed.
"With diesel fuel at $2.35, I
cringe when we get a call at
night or on the weekend,
because I then have to pay a
driver overtime. Depending on
the distance, the minimum
towing charge is $85.
Sometimes it's dumped out by
the Kissimmee River on 98.
That's how far we have to go.

ARTS & LEISURE



In books, distance is measured by learning and adventure


I'm glad we never switched
to the metric system. Our lan-
guage would be so much poor-
er. It wouldn't sound the same
to say that person talks a kilo-
meter a minute, or a miss is as
good as a kilometer. No, I like
the word "mile," and so do
many authors whose books are
available for your education
and entertainment in our
Heartland Library Cooperative
libraries.
Children will enjoy the Tony
Johnston picture book of his
boyhood memories of the
excitement of having a train
pull into the town of
Jacksonville, Texas. This true
train tale is called "How Many
Miles to Jacksonville?"
Older elementary school stu-
dents will take to the engaging


story by Thelma
Wyss called "Ten .?
Miles from '
Winnemucca." A
confused teenager .S A
thinks he can resolve
his feelings about his
mom's remarriage by 4
taking his Jeep and
his savings and driv-
ing until his money
runs out. Martin ends LIBRAl
up in a small town in -
Idaho, eventually los- Ca
ing his Jeep but find- Hes
ing out, "no matter
where I found myself.
I would always be just ten miles
from Winnemucca in my heart."
Travel fiction buffs should
check off the Robert Randisi
Miles Jacoby series, including
"Hard Look." In that book, bar
owner and private investigator


Miles Jacoby jour-
Pi_; neys to Florida to
A locate a bodybuilder
wife. He discovers
S she is involved in
. much more than
bodybuilding.
There are many
ways to travel, and
.,' the most elementary
RY LINES one is explored in
- Amby Burfoot's
rolyn "The Principles of
'selink Running: Practical
-- Lessons from my
First 100,000 Miles."
This guide is practical, inspira-
tional, and philosophical, and it
offers insights into all aspects of
running, including diet,
injuries, weather, mental prepa-
ration and marathons.
Progress in travel meant let-


ting someone or something else
do the work, as described in
Carrie Strahom's "Fifteen
Thousand Miles by Stage: A
Woman's Unique Experience
During 30 Years of Path
Finding and Pioneering from
the Missouri to the Pacific and
from Alaska to Mexico."
You might go a bit faster and
pay a lot less if you were on a
boat. N. H. Bishop's journey
taken in 1875 is called "Four
Months in a Sneak-Box: A Boat
Voyage of 2600 Miles Down
the Ohio and Mississippi
Rivers, and Along the Gulf of
Mexico."
"One Horse, One Hundred
Miles, One Day: The Story of
the Tevis Cup Endurance Ride"
details the mountainous terrain
and portrays the spirit of the
competitors and the travail that


the riders endured not to men-
tion the horses!
Kayakers rejoice! Kira Salak
has written "The Cruelest
Journey: 600 Miles to
Timbuktu." Salak followed the
200-year-old trail of Scottish
explorer Mungo Park, who
attempted to paddle down the
Niger River to Timbuktu.
Salak's trip was a bit different
as she used an inflatable kayak,
but it was no less hair-raising!
Travel to another continent in
"A Hundred Miles of Bad
Road: An Armored Cavalryman
in Vietnam, 1967-68" by part-
Cherokee Army volunteer
Dwight Birdwell. This one-time
teenager hellion was assigned
to a tank unit north of Saigon
and eventually was caught in
the Tet Offensive of 1968. The
"Publisher's Weekly" review


says, "Reflecting on his
wartime experiences and their
aftermath, Birdwell, who
became a lawyer, and, for a
time, Chief Justice of the
Cherokee Nation, says: 'When I
die, if there's anyone around
who remembers me, the only
thing I want them to say is that
I was a soldier.'"

Continued from 1B

Then we store it and are
allowed to charge $20 per day.
But most people never claim
their car, so we don't get paid,"
Celentano said. "We're
required to immediately send a
certified letter to the last regis-
tered owner. I also have to run
an ad in the paper for two
weeks, making sure we did
everything possible to notify
the' owner. When we place a
lien on a car, the owner is
required, to pay the bill before
he can register an other vehicle.
When most of them discover
there is a lien, they just put their
next car's title in another fami-
ly member's name so they don't
have to pay us. Finally, it costs
us $35 to get a destruction title
from the state. So after we've
towed it arid stored it for the
required 36 days, and run a
two-week ad, we get $50 for it
at the salvage yard. We never
get paid for 75 percent of the
abandoned cars we tow."
Celentano explained that the
car owners who abandoned
their vehicles are well aware of
the laws, and if not he makes
sure he informs them.
"This morning I got one with
Maine tags, so I can't even lien
it. The engine gave out. It's
junk. Most cars are stripped of
all their belongings and worth-
less when they get to us. I'm a
compassionate person, but most
of these people just don't care.
And over the years it has gotten
worse. If there's not a plate on
the car, which is the norm ...
you'll never see the owners.
These people know the drill.
When I send the certified letter,
I automatically enclose the lien
law," Celentano said.

Nothing left
Another assumption is that
there are a lot of interesting
items found in these orphan
cars, but that is rarely true and
certainly nothing of value is
ever left.


Beverly Ragland, the owner
of Ducks Towing, said, "They
generally don't have insurance,
and surprisingly, most don't
even possess a driver's license
when we ask for identification.
If you're a normal, decent per-
son, you know what tow fees
are. But these people make a
decision: 'I'll just leave it on
the road, so it won't cost me.'
The only time we ever get paid
is if the car is from a 'buy here,
pay here' place like Chaney's
Used Cars or Sebring Motor
Sales. People will drive a car
for four or five weeks and when
it breaks down, they just aban-
don it. They are angry that they
still owe money and usually
beat the windows out, thinking
they'll tear the car up first
before'it goes back to the deal-
er," Ragland said.
Bob .Vonvroski at Artistic
Towing in Sebring said, "They
junk their cars, take the motor
out, and take anything of value.
This is how they choose to
make their problems go away.
We're lucky if even 10 percent
are worth anything. Usually all
that's in them is food wrappers,
trash, and needles."
Vonvroski said he got one car
that was burned up. "The owner
had killed someone in Tampa.
They chased him down here,
where he abandoned the car in
the woods and then took off."
He echoed comments made
from other owners of towing
companies by saying these peo-
ple drive with a suspended
license or no license at all.
"They just do not care. Oh, they
scream and holler, but they
never take responsibility. It's
always someone else's fault.
Come on, what normal person
would look you in the eye and
say they 'lost' their car for a
week? Would you claim to have
loaned your car to a friend on
drugs? People have said 'I left
$1,000 in cash under the front
seat ... you switched tires on
me.' They all try different sto-
ries," Vonvroski said.
According to Towing
Magazine, 75,000 cars were


towed in just one month in
Philadelphia. In Sebring, each
of the five towing companies
probably tow at least 100 aban-
doned vehicles a year.
"Sometimes code enforce-
ment calls because people
skipped and left a car at an
apartment, even at the welfare
office, or they wrecked a car,"
Vonvroski said. "No one ever
wants to pay. Most of these
people don't work. Granted,
some have had bad luck. But
they're not the typical ones."

Final resting place
The final resting place of
abandoned vehicles (if no one
claims them from the towing
company) is a salvage yard.
Arnold Belcher at Jim's Auto
Salvage of Sebring typically
only pays $50 for an abandoned
car.
"It's been stripped before we
ever get it ... and we've never
found any dead bodies. We do
check for toxic items, like
propane cylinders, for example.
We crush these junk cars here
and then they go to Trademark,
a company located at the Port of
Tampa where a shredder then'
makes them into fist-sized
pieces. From their conveyor it's
put on a barge and goes to
Texas where it is melted and
recycled .into rebar and then
ironically returns to Florida for
our booming construction busi-
ness," Belcher said.
Jim's Auto Salvage crushes
80-100 cars per day when it is
necessary to thin out cars from
the salvage yard. Normally a
car is placed in the crusher with
its top open so that other loose
material, like appliances, can
then be stacked inside. Then
another car is added to the top
of that pile, making it like a
sandwich. This makes a bundle
of pressed cars. There are four
bundles on a load, and Jim's
Auto Salvage ships 300 loads a
year to Tampa.

AFI recognizes movie lines for being an enduring part of culture


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
When Gary Cooper turned down the
role of Rhett Butler in "Gone with the
Wind," could have have imagined that
he would be letting Clark Gable recite
the most famous line in movie history?
During a three-hour CBS special
Tuesday night, the American Film
Institute announced the top 100 movie
quotes of the last 100 years. The top
line, picked by a jury of 1,500 movie
artists, critics and historians: "Frankly,
my dear, I don't give a damn."
The AFI compiles lots of "100 best
lists" as a way of pointing out movies
that have made a significant impact on
the culture and are especially worthy
of preserving.

Test your knowledge of
great movie lines
Here's a quiz to challenge film
lovers. Quotes are below. Name the
movie in which they were spoken. If
you can also name the actor who
spoke them and the year of release,
feel free to tell your friends how smart
you are. (You can find the answers at
the end of the quiz, or you can go to
the AFI's Web site at
http://www.afi.com to read all of 100
lines on the list.

1. "What we've got here is a fail-
ure to communicate."
2. "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready
for my close-up."


It's new "100 Best Movie Quotes"
list is no exception. As the AFI points
out, movie dialogue is quoted and
requoted as it makes its way into the
national lexicon and become an endur-
ing part of American culture.
That's why all of the movies came
from American films. They were
released before Jan. 1, 2004, and were
all 60 minutes or longer the typical
length of a feature film.
Who hasn't heard the top most
quotable lines spoken outside a movie
theater?
From "The Godfather," the sec-
ond-ranked quote: "I'm going to make
him an offer he can't refuse."
Number three, from "On the
Waterfront": "You don't understand! I
could been a contender. I could've

3. "I'm mad as nell. and I'm not
going to take it anymore!"
4. "Show me the money!"
5. "I'm walking here! I'm walking
here!"
6. "You can't handle the truth!"
7. "I'll have what she's having."
8. "Badges? We ain't got no
badges! We don't need no badges! I
don't have to show you any stinking
badges!"
9. "We rob banks."
10.'Oh. Jerry, don't let's ask for
the moon. We have the stars."
11."A boy's best friend is his moth-.
er."
12."Well, here's another nice mess
you've gotten me into."
13."Say 'hello' to my little friend."


been somebody, instead of a bum,
which is what I am."
"Toto, I've got a feeling we're
not in Kansas anymore," the fourth-
ranked quote from "The Wizard of
Oz."
And number five, one of the
famous lines of all time: "Here's look-
ing at you, kid" from "Casablanca."
As a matter of trivia, the oldest
quote to make the list (number 71)
comes from the first piece of dialogue
ever heard in a feature film "Wait a
minute, wait a minute. You ain't heard
nothing' yet." It was spoken by Al
Jolson in "The Jazz Singer" (1927).
And the most recent quote? "My
precious!" The character: Gollum. The
movie: "The Lord of the Rings: The
Two Towers" (2002).

14."Gentlemen, you can't fight in
here! This is the War Room!"
15."Mothier of mercy, is this the
end of Rico?"
16."I have always depended on the
kindness of strangers."
17."Listen to them. Children of the
night. What music they make."
18."Sawyer, you're going out a
youngster, but you've got to come
back a star!"
19,"My mother thanks you. My
father thanks you. And I thank you."
20."I'm king of the world!"
Answers
1. "Cool Hand Luke.' Paul
Newman. 1967 (1ith)
2. "Sunset Boulevard." Gloria


What's the AFI?
The nonprofit American Film Institute was established in 1967 by the
National Endowment for the Arts. It preserves and catalogs American film and
television, provides grades to novice and experienced filmmakers, and increas-
es an understanding of film as art. AFI's headquarters are in the John F.
Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. It has an archives
of films at the Library of Congress and various museums. The Web site is at
http://www.afi.com.


The most quotable actor was
Humphrey Bogart, who had 10 quotes
on the original ballot of about 400
lines. Al Pacino and the Marx Brothers
were second with six each, while Tom
Hanks, Robert De Niro, Jimmy
Stewart, Woody Allen and Jack
Nicholson all made the list five times.
Billy Wilder was the writer with the
most quotes with 13 on the ballot.
Francis Ford Coppola had nine lines

Swanson. 1950. 117th)
3. "Network." Peter Finch. 1976.
(19th)
4. "Jerry Maguire." Cuba Gooding
Jr. 1996. (25thi
5. "Midnight Cowboy." Dustin
Hoffman. 1969. (27thl
6. "A Few Good Men." Jacl-
Nicholson. 1992. 129thi
7. "When Harry Met Sall\." Estelle

10."Now, Voyager." Bette Davis.
1942. i46th)
11."Psycno." Anthony Perkins.
1960. 156thi


for voters to decide on, seven coming
from "The Godfather" series." The
third most-quoted scriptwriter was
Woody Allen.
The best year for movies was 1939.
The ballot had 19 movies lines from
that year.
Reading the list of great lines is
enough to make you want to see some
of these movies all over again or for
the first time. I think that's the real
point of it.

Hardy. 1933. 160th)

Understanding Florida's most widely seen rodent


First in a series
The Highlands County Master
Gardeners office has received several
inquiries about squirrels and how to
control the problems they cause.
At the Extension Services Web page
of the University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agriculture Sciences, I
found much information about them.
Of the 94 species of wild mammals
that are native to Florida, none are
more frequently encountered than
squirrels. They belong to the most suc-
cessful and widespread order in the
world rodents.
One of the main differences between
squirrels and most rodents is that squir-
rels have a large bushy tail. They also
have well-developed jaw muscles and
chisel-like front teeth that can chew
through just about anything.
In Florida, a female squirrel usually
produces two litters of two to four off-
spring each year. The first arrives in
January or February, the second in
mid-summer.


Young squirrels mature
slowly for rodents and are
on their own in about two
months.
Most of Florida's species
nest in trees. This nest
becomes the center of the
adult squirrel's activities.
Most squirrels are active
during the day, which makes
their activities quite notice-
able to use. They rely on


GROWING
SF~ASON


their keen senses to detect
danger when it is still some
distance away and then they Co t
make a quick escape. Garo
Squirrels basically are
vegetarians. They eat a wide
variety of plants but mostly prefer
fruits and nuts. In the fall, they are
especially attracted to oaks, hickories
and pecans. But for all their love of
fruits and nuts, tree squirrels also will
eat the eggs and young of nesting birds
and certain types of insects.
Florida is home to three species of
tree squirrels gray, fox and flying


lands
I Master
deners


squirrel and one species
of ground squirrel, the east-
ern chipmunk. Although
they share many of' the same
characteristics, each one is
unique.


Gray squirrel
The adorable gray squirrel
is one of the most common-
ly seen mammals throughout
Flofida. These medium -sized.
squirrels weigh about one
pound and are about 15 inches
long, half of that being the
tail.


As their name suggests,
their fur is predominantly gray in color
and has rust-colored hairs scattered
throughout the coat. It is not uncom-
mon, however, to see blonde or black
gray squirrels.
Under natural conditions, gray
squirrels are most abundant in hard-
wood or mixed hardwood and pine
forests. They are common in urban


areas though, because they are not
fussy about their habitat. They do quite
well in residential areas where only a
few large trees are present.
Oaks are especially attractive to
them, and they can supplement this
food by using bird feeders and gar-
dens.

Fox squirrel
Florida's fox squirrel popular gener-
ally has not fared well. Although these
squirrels occur statewide, several races
have declined drastically.

Flying squirrel
The southern flying squirrel weighs
only about two ounces and measures
just nine inches long with a three- to
four-inch tail.
Their eyes and ears are large and
noticeable. Their fur is dense and soft,
the upper body color being light brown
and the belly white.
Flying' squirrels get their name
because of their ability to glide for dis-
tances of 150 feet. They do this by


climbing high in a tree and leaping
with their legs outstretched. This
stretches the skin membrane along
their sides and allows them to glide to
another tree.
Flying squirrels move poorly on the
ground and rarely do so. Unlike other
Florida squirrels, flying squirrels are
rarely active during the day.
Next week I will continue dis-
cussing some of the problems home
owners encounter with squirrels and
how to solve them.

If you have a plant that you would like
for one of the Master Gardeners to
write about or if you have gardening
-questions, call 402-6540 or visit the
Master Gardeners office in the
Highlands County Agri-Civic Center.

HOMELESS
Continued from 1B
got a job, and then another girl shows
up, saying she's his wife too and her
name is Susan also," Karl said. "Some
people that come in look normal. Some
look very low class. They're dressed
poorly, with unruly hair, and bad
hygiene. And if they were crack
addicts, they'd sell their mom for a fix.
They're the best liars."
Arnold Belcher at Jim's Auto
Salvage of Sebring testified that some
people actually reside in their vehicles.
"We know some that live in their


car, selling cans to us to make a little
money. You glance inside and see piles
of clothes, even paperwork on their
dash. These people usually go to a
back street in a section of town to sleep
for the night. They're not transients.
They are people who live right here in
Sebring. But they've crossed a line.
They can and have worked in the past.
Some are on drugs or are drunks, of
course. A few are veterans who are
emotionally mixed up. I know one guy
who lives under a box in the woods. He
and the ones who live in their cars rely
on others to survive. Places like New
Testament Mission fills their need for
food, clothes, a bed, and money,"


Belcher said.
Karl has heard various circum-
stances that have caused people to be
homeless.
"Usually they are poor or have phys-
ical and mental problems. Maybe the
breadwinner had a heart attack. If they
have -kids, there's no savings, and
they're strapped, which pushes them
into a homeless circumstance. Last
year's storms especially blew their
lives apart," Karl said.
Penny Phillipi at Housing of
Highlands County said, "If it's a fami-
ly with children and they're living in a
car, they usually keep quiet about it so
the Department of Children & Families


won't take their kids. They're knowl-
edgeable and cautious. Some people
just can't make a deposit, plus the first
and last month's rent. Of the ones we
see, 19 percent work full time, and 17
,percent work part time. There's a real
lack of low-income housing in this
area."
Phillipi also has noticed an increase
of homeless people because of the past
hurricane season.
"Last year's hurricanes displaced
250 families who moved to Orlando,
450 who moved out of the state, and
357 who are temporarily in trailers and
only have months left to get out of
those. But the storms made it OK to be


homeless and come to us for help.
These are desperate people. We do bur
best, but the resources are strained to
the limit," Phillipi said.
. She added, "We've even seen an
increase of teenagers who've been
kicked out by their parents. Sometimes
a woman gets beat up, and the car is
her only place to go."
When a person walks away from a
car, it's often the last perceived vestige
of independence. The act of abandon-
ment represents a loss of self-respect
and responsibility. These cars are not
only remnants of shattered, lives, but
are symbolic of deeper problems that
remain unsolved in our community.

after you have returned home.
This place is Rainbowut six
Springs State Park, near Ocala,
named for the brilliant bluish-
colored spring waters of the
Rainbow River. Interestingly,
the state park and campgrounds
are in separate locations. The
park and the campground are
physically one mile apart,
although the drive is about six
miles.
Once privately owned, the
campground is now part of the
Florida Park Service. It has a
small visitor's center, moder and
restrooms, and a heated swim-
ming pool. The entry station
offers grocery items, souvenirs,
snacks, ice and ice cream bars.
Campsites include water and
electric hookups, and some
have sewer connections. There
is an upper and lower section
with restrooms on both sides.
The upper area is a converted
grassy field and is close to the
pool, laundry facilities, play-
ground and visitor's center. The
lower section is mostly a dirt
base, under trees and close to
the river.
All amenities are within a
short walk to camping areas.
Future plans to revamp sites
with vegetation barriers will
improve on the lack of privacy,
but this isn't really a problem
since the. river will swallow
most of your daylight hours.

Where: 3 miles north of Dunnellon on the east side of U.S. 41.
The campground is on S.W. 180th Avenue Road, two miles north
of County Road 484 and two miles south of State Road 40.

base of the camping area, which
hugs the edge of the river. Bring
your own gear or rent theirs.
There is a small fishing and
swimming area, with concrete
steps to help the hesitant enter
the icy water.
Cool blue ride
Our vacation began with a
45-minute paddle, suitable even
for a novice, up the wide, crys-
tal clear river to the headspring.
The Rainbow River spawns
from a spring that gushes an
average of 462 million gallons a
day.
The water is breathtaking in
view and temperature. At a cool
70-odd degrees, it will chill and
thrill you at the same time!
A word of caution:
Disposable containers such as
plastic drink bottles, food wrap-
pers and plastic bags are not
allowed on the river. Bring
appropriate containers for your
food and beverages and any
medications you take with you.
While paddling, you'll see
beautiful homes on one side of
the river and "the real Florida"
on the other. There is gently
waving vegetation and a lime-
stone bottom. Where vegetation


is lacking, the water is a shock-
ing side of aqua.
We saw anhingas, several
species of turtles and river
otters and heard that a small
gator was swimming down-
stream. The numbing coolness
of the water made us wonder,
and we never did see him. Local
teens jumping out of treetops
into the deep pools of the river
assured us that at night the
Rainbow was full of gators.
Historic state park
When you arrive at the head-
springs, the river swells to twice
its size. Paddle in and dock your
canoe so you can visit the state
park.
Once a popular privately
owned attraction dating back to
the 1930s, it is now state pro-
tected. Winding, historic brick-
paved paths, garden-like vege-
tation, and cascading waterfalls
reminded us of a more moun-
tainous version of Cypress
Gardens in Winter Haven.
The gift shop has souvenirs,
guidebooks and children's
items. The snack bar offers
heat-and-eat sandwiches, pizza,
snacks, ice cream, cold drinks
and more. Both are staffed by


the Friends of
Springs, a Citize
Organization.

Lifeguards were on duty the
weekend we visited, but I'd rec-
Sommend that you bring or pur-
chase these upon arriving at the
park. Inflatable float devices are
not permitted, so leave those
blow-up items at home.
Soon we paddled back down

ing. Getting into the water

warmer air temperatures or a
psychological adjustment, I

the walkways. Deep shade and
bright green ferns are acces-

tals.
A large, grassy hillside is per-
fect for picnickers basking in
the sun after an invigorating
swim. The large sky-blue head-
spring-pool appears to be just a
few feet deep.
Upon further inspection, or
should I say, immersion, we
realized that it was at least six
feet deep. Due to the depth and
cold temperatures, we quickly
decided that the reasonably
priced "fun noodles" flotation
devices at the gift shop would
be a good purchase.
Our daughter is an accom-
plished swimmer and insisted
that she didn't need one but the
cold water quickly fatigued her.
The noodles helped keep our
numbed bodies afloat as we
made our way back to the entry


where the river bottom plum-
mets, you can see perfectly
clear to depths of 20 feet or so.
Here and. there, rocky caves
gush even colder water.
Once our daughter was too
chilled to snorkel anymore, we
headed back to the campground
for a swim in the pool. When
the pool closed at 7 p.m., we
grilled steaks and enjoyed din-
ner by firelight.
As darkness fell, the wooded
edge of. the campground
became lit by perhaps millions
of blinking green lights. The
fireflies stayed close to the tree
line, but we caught few in ajar.
All too soon, it was time to let
them go and get back on the
road to home.

10 Years Ago
June 26, 1995: Ryan
Knowles doubled with the
bases loaded in the top of
the sixth to drive in the
Sebring Firemen's only two
runs in a 2-1 victory over
Okeechobee National in a
"Strong Team" Dixie Youth
Majors tournament in
Sebring. Knowles, Richie
Cormier and Trey Cleveland
combined to one-hit their
opponent, which pushed its
only run across in the first.

25 Years Ago
June 26, 1980: John Tolar
threw a one-hitter as Avon
Paint and Body wrapped up
the Avon Park Senior
League championship with
a 5-0 win over Avon Citrus
Bank. Tolar struck out
seven and walked five while
Duane Young and Pokey

DixieYouth Majors Baseball District 8Tournament

Jackson fans 13 to lead AP past Sebring National


BY JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
CLEWISTON Coach
Greg Jackson was hoping for a
few more hits, but he wasn't
complaining after his Avon
Park team beat Sebring
National 3-1 behind the domi-
nating pitching of his son, Ty, in
the first round of the Dixie
Youth Majors District 8 tourna-
ment on Saturday.
Ty Jackson struck out 13 and
scattered four hits, and Avon
Park got all the runs it would


need in the bottom of the third
inning to advance to today's 6
p.m. game against either
Okeechobee American or
Clewiston. Lake Placid's game
against Belle Glade was not
complete at press time on
Saturday. The winner of that
game will face Sebring
American, which drew a first-
round bye, today at 4 p.m.
The game was tied at 1-1
when Lacy' Turner and
Katelynn Stoll singled to lead
off the third for Avon Park.


Both were snuffed out on field-
er's. choices off the bats of
Avierre Conner and Greg
Gentry, but that kept the inning
alive long enough for Matthew
Rivera, who one-hopped the
fence in the right-center field
for a double to drive in Conner
and Favianette Cotte for a 3-1
lead.
Sebring elected to intention-
ally walk Jackson and load the
bases, but the rally was cut
short when Gentry was thrown
out attempting to score on a


wild pitch.
Avon Park already had all the
runs it would need, however,
with Jackson in control on the
mound.
"My fastball was working
really good and so was my
curveball," Jackson said. "I was
hitting my target really good
today. This win feels pretty
good because the rest of the
way will be downhill. It's good
to get the first game out of the

Sebring American prevails in dramatic showdown to win district title


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING It wasn't a matter of out-
playing the crosstown rival, but outlasting
them.
Sebring American had the last at-bat
Friday, and Austin Hedrick hit a bouncing
ball into left center field for the game-win-
ning single, delivering the ultimate heroics
in a 14-13 seven-inning thriller against
Sebring National for the championship of
the Dixie Youth AAA District 8 tourna-
ment.
"I can't say enough about the heart that
these guys have. Both teams. Not just one
team," American coach Kelly Payne said.
"But I've got some guys playing on my
team who are willing to fight the whole


game."
Originally set for Clewiston but moved
instead to Max Long Recreational
Complex, Friday's championship was the
third meeting between the two teams, the
second in as many nights and the second
decided by only one run. Both teams quali-
fy for the state tournament that begins July
16 in Okeechobee, and they could meet
again there next month.
"Our goal was to win the district, but at
least we're going to state," National coach
Tommy Lovett said.
Yet the early returns indicated National
would cruise to the district title. American
trailed 4-0 before it sent its first batter to the
plate, 11-6 in the middle of the fifth, 12-9
going into the bottom of the sixth, and


never led until Johnny Vega crossed the
plate with the winning run.
"It seems like three or four to nothing in
the first two innings is the key," Payne said.
"We've got to be behind by 4-0. It's killing
me. I'm having heart failure."
Still, three-run innings in the first and
third left the game tied heading into the top
of the fifth inning, when National delivered
what appeared to be a knockout blow.
Singles by Wade Faircloth and Jared Lang
keyed an 11-batter, five-run inning.
After T.J. McGlinchey's walk forced in
Justin Acevedo with the National's llth
run, eventual winning pitcher Jake Bryan
was brought in to relieve, and retired the

Hot shots steal show


in Jarrett Invitational


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Steve Hall (left) gets a high five from Bud Wester after Hall made a
double eagle on No. 18 at River Greens during the Jarrett
Invitational on Saturday.


Hopkins' ace topped by
Hall's double eagle
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The real
question in the first round of the
19th annual Bill Jarrett Ford
Invitational at River Greens on
Saturday wasn't who had the
best round. It was who had the
best shot.
For a while, it seemed Mark
Hopkins' hole-in-one on the
12th hole would be the swing of
the day. That was until Steve
Hall, who was playing two
groups ahead of Hopkins,


closed out an incredible back
nine with a double eagle on the
par-5 finishing hole to vault
into the lead of the 102-player
tournament.
Hall, who won the tourna-
ment nine years ago, birdied the
ninth hole to make the turn in 2-
over 37. He then made birdies
on the next three holes, a pair of
pars, two more birdies, a par
and the double eagle for an 8-
under 29 on the back to finish
the day at 6-under 66 and with a
one-shot lead heading into
today's final round.

Athletes show

best way to

handle defeat
For every story we read
about an athlete popping
off and losing his temper,
it's hard to realize how
much composure these true
sportsmen really show.
I'm a Detroit Pistons
fan, and I'm stinging a lit-
tle bit right now from
Game 7. I'm by no means
a diehard, but toward the
bitter end Thursday night, I
found myself having to
take a few quiet moments
of reflection while silently
rooting for Tim Duncan or
Manu Ginobili to trip over
something.
As I dealt with the final-
ity and the realization that I
won't be buying any com-
memorative T-shirt-and-
DVD packages this sum-
mer, I assuaged myself not
only with realization that I
saved about $75,'but also
with the thought that these
Pistons, like most every
runner-up every year, exit-
ed the stage with grace and
without incident.
If I were, say, competing
directly against another
writer for what coisid-
ered the be-all and end-all
of my profession, and the
other guy just barely beat
me, I'm not sure I would
go down without a fight.
Perhaps it would involve
fists, or maybe just an out-
stretched leg at the right
moment. You want to keep
your opponent guessing.
Now I've never, ever hit
anyone, but I've never put
a lifetime of dedication and
toil on the line for perhaps
one single shot at the Holy
Grail of my profession,
either. There have been
plenty of job interviews
and writing contests, but
nothing like the mano-a-
mano that defines sports.
I'm particularly
impressed when I see a
youth team bow out in
style. I've seen a lot of
heartbreaking losses and a
lot of tears, but I've never
seen anybody deliver a
cheap shot during the
awards ceremony, which, if
you think about it, is
remarkable considering the
emotional volatility of 13-
year-olds.
At least younger kids
don't have to deal with a
barrage of reporters in their
locker room after they lose.
It's never any writer's
favorite assignment, partic-
ularly because it means
going up to an athlete who
is much larger, much
stronger, and now much
angrier than you're really
ever going to be, and trying
to get him to give me a
good quote.
Honestly, if I had to give
a press conference after I
lost Game 7, and I some-
how got there without get-
ting ejected for becoming
the first player in league
history to deliver two fla-
grant fouls in less than a
second, I think it might go
something like this:
"OK, first of all, (exple-
tive) (expletive) (exple-
tive). Second, did you
know Robert Horry is a
gutless cheater? Well, he is.
How else could a guy who
hasn't averaged as much as
nine points a game since
1996 do what he does in
the playoffs? He cheats.
And stinks, too.

Big bass boat not a necessity


If you are like me, you don't have one of
those big, pretty fishing' boats. And I also know
how.much you envy that fellow who does.
Every time one of them whizzes by me on the
lake, I stop everything and just stare in apprecia-
tion of all that beauty.
I have never owned more than a 14-foot alu-
minum boat, although when I was a whole lot
younger I built a wooden runabout from a store-
bought kit. It had a deck and two padded,
bench-type seats with high, comfortable backs.
With a 40-horse outboard, it was great for
Sunday afternoon cruising.
When I tried to fish from it, though, I found it
to be very uncomfortable, awkward and
unhandy. Everything seemed to be in the way.
The seats were in the wrong place, the steering
wheel was a nuisance and my fishing rods and
tackle box were always where they shouldn't be.
I soon got rid of that boat. I sold for the first
offer I got.
This 14-foot aluminum
boat is a perfect fit for me.
Thanks to invitations from
friends, I have fished a myr-
iad of times from a big bass
boat and really enjoyed the
convenience, but I didn't
catch any more bass while
doing so.
OUTDOORS I have to say, a well-man-
aged bass boat can put
Lloyd Jones everything at your finger-
tips. With a place for every-
thing and everything in its
place, you can be comfortable while fishing.
Thanks to all the fellows who have invited me
aboard their beautiful boats. I always had a great
time.
U..
The one thing that I have always wanted to do
was fish a big time-totrnament (even from the
back of the boat) with a famous professional
bass angler. He might show me a trick or two
that I haven't used and I'd like that. It wouldn't
really matter if I caught anything or not. I'd just
enjoy chance to spend the day with one who
would undoubtedly know more than I about bass
fishing.
I think I have caught more than my share of
big bass from my old aluminum boat. I used to
watch a lot of the fishing shows on TV and I
miss hearing Roland Martin's famous saying,
"Son, that's what it's all about."
I loved watching Roland. He seldom threw a
lure without catching something. He must have
known where every bass hung out in Lake
Okeechobee. He didn't hoist up any little 'uns,
either. He didn't seem to mess with anything
under 7 or 8 pounds.
On one Sunday afternoon show, he was fish-
ing Okeechobee and got into some pretty heavy
cover. The water wasn't too deep, so he decided
to get out and wade. I think Roland is a very


Courtesy photo
Five-year-old Ashton Crunkelton caught a 6-
pound, 24-inch bass and a 2'/2-pound, 23/2-inch
pickerel on live bait recently while visiting his
grandparents, Lee and Sheri Andrus of Lake
Placid.

smart man. Anybody who can make such a good
living from bass fishing is smart. Or maybe
lucky.
Anyway, when he stepped out into the water,
it was up to his chest. That didn't seem to bother
him in the least. If I recollect, Lake Okeechobee
is running over with alligators. Big alligators.
The man is a lot braver than I would ever be.
Roland had a tow line attached from his boat
to his belt as he waded through the cattails and
reeds. He caught a few real good bass before
one almost jerked the rod from his grasp. He
had the rod high over his head as he fought to
bring the bass in. He turned a couple of circles '
in doing so.
Finally, grabbing the monster that must have
weighed at least 11 pounds, he broke out that
familiar grin and said, "Son, that's what it's all
about." Well, about that time the bass lunged,
Roland lost his grip and the bass was floudering
in his arms. It was an unforgettable sight to see
as Roland floundered and struggled to recapture
his prize.
For a bit, he had the bass up in his arms and
as it flopped away, Roland was splashing around
up to his chin in the water trying to corral the
fish. I had never seen Roland look so dejected
and disheveled as he watched the bass disappear
in the murky water. But like one famous bass
angler says, "Son, that's what it's all about."

SCOTT DRESSELNe'ws-Sun
Cody Brownell misses an eagle putt on No. 16 at River Greens on
Saturday.


SHOTS
Continued from ID
"That's the best nine holes
I've ever seen," commented
Bud Wester, who played in the
same group with Hall.
It was the best nine holes
Hall had ever seen, too, beating
his personal best of 30.
"I got some good breaks,"
Hall said of his finish. "I made
a good birdie on No. 9 to get
back to 2-over and then just got
on a roll."
Even with the roll he was on,
Hall couldn't have imagined
that his second shot on the 18th
hole a 7-wood from 210
yards out would hit in front
of the green, roll up and drop
into the cup for his second
career double eagle.
"I just wanted to hit it up to
the front of the green and let it
scoot up to the flag," he said. "I


nutted it dead solid perfect. It
never left the flag. It just kept
getting closer and closer and
then it went out of sight."
Hall's fantastic finish left
him one stroke ahead of 2003
champion Cody Brownell and
three ahead of Hopkins, the
1995 winner.
Mike Marlette is fourth with
71, followed by Gary Bagwell
with 72, Russ Trombley and
Wester tied for sixth at 73 and
Jim Casey with 74. Defending
champ and four-time winner
Eddie Freeland is tied with
Jimmy Tsakalos for ninth with
75 and Marc Devany (2000
winner), Brian Hendrickson,
Brian Jarrett, David Simms and
Jerry Wagner are all tied at 76.
Hopkins didn't seem to mind
that his second career ace was
trumped by Hall.
"That's all right," he said.
"He's going to pay the bar tab."


MYRON

"You know what? I don't
really care, either. I don't. Fine
me, Mr. Stem. Fine me for
(expletive) (expletive) (exple-
tive). I got $60 million. I could
curse until next week and not
rdn out of money.
"I'm all right, though. I'll
just go home and see my wife.
And I hope those guys on San
Antonio realize she's a model.
Especially Tony Parker. My
wife would never be
'Desperate' enough to hang
around him!"
So kudos to the Pistons for
having more class than their
fans, and kudos to all the ath-
letes who know how to win as
well as lose.
And let this be a warning to
anyone who wants to go up
against me for a Pulitzer Prize.

way and get rid of the chill
bumps."
Avon Park struck first when
Gentry led off with a bunt sin-
gle in the bottom of the first,
stole second and scored on
Drew Reeves' two-out single to
center to make it 1-0.
Sebring answered immedi-
ately in the top of the second as
Seth Abeln doubled to left-cen-
ter with one out and scored eas-
ily when Tyler Stanaback
copied him with a double to
nearly the same spot. Jackson
then struck out the next batter
and Stanaback was tagged out
attempting to score on a single
by Anthony Hargaden, ending
the inning.
Jackson retired the next 12
batters he faced 10 by
strikeout to keep Sebring
National from getting another
baserunner the rest of the way.
Matt Randall was the starter
for Sebring, giving up one run
on two hits and striking out
two. He was followed by Jesse
Baker, who worked the next
two innings and gave up two
runs on four hits, and then Toby
Solebello closed out the game
with a perfect fifth, striking out
two.

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
The Sebring American All-Stars show off their district championship trophies Friday night.


BEAUTY
Continued from 1D
last two batters of the inning in
order as if to signal the sea
change about to take place.
"Jake Bryan is a clutch play-
er," Payne said. "Nothing both-
ers him. He doesn't get shook
up, and he delivers, just like the
rest of them."
Ryan McNew led off the bot-
tom of the fifth with a single,
and Cody Cleveland hit a single
up the middle to cap a three-run
answer by the Americans. Jared
*Lang's infield single and Torri
Pringle's RBI walk stretched
the National lead to 12-9 in the
top of the sixth, but that merely
set the stage for American dra-
matics.
The first two American bat-
ters were sent down in order in
the bottom of the sixth, but C.J.
Payne kept his team alive with a
single to right. Bryan followed
with a ground-rule double. An
error then allowed Garrett


Martinez on and both Payne
and Bryan in, and another mis-
cue allowed Martinez in to tie
the game 12-12 and force extra
innings.
"We felt like we really had
the better team. Unfortunately,
we couldn't throw and catch a
couple times tonight, which
cost us, obviously," Lovett said.
"I thought we had the game
won, but that happens. These
kids are 9 and 10 years old."
In the seventh, National
staged a two-out rally of its own
after Faircloth was hit by a
pitch. Jared Lang laced a single
down the right field line, and
Acevedo did the same down the
left field line to put his team on
top 13-12.
Bryan struck out the next bat-
ter to assure National had the
slimmest lead possible, and
Wyatt Johnson was hit by a
pitch to lead off the bottom of
the seventh. McNew singled
again, and Vega tied the game
with a single to right-center.
The Americans had one out'


and runners on second and third
when Lovett decided to inten-
tionally walk Bryan, who
already had a pair of doubles on
the night.
"I knew Jake's been hitting
the ball the whole tournament,"
Lovett said. "He's probably got
seven or eight doubles. He's
just crushing the ball, so I didn't
want him to beat us."
The move paid off when
National got the second out on a
force at home, but Hedrick
came up next, and delivered the
final blow.
"Whether it had been Austin,
or Jacob Hamilton, or Ryan
McNew, or whoever, I would
have expected no less out of
any of my ballplayers," Payne
said. "I hate to just mention just
a few names. That's not right.
"I love each and every one of
them. I love them all, they're
like my kids," Payne added.
"I've got commitment. I've got
a whole sideline full of parents
and fans who are the most won-
derful people."
