ZOLFO SPRINGS The
trailer factory was intact when
Custom Kraft employees left
Thursday, but an inferno
destroyed their workplace a
short time later.
Initially Hardee County units
responded around 5:30 p.m. to
the scene at 3966 U.S. 17
South. Firefighters from
Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee and
Polk counties were then called
out for mutual aid around 6
p.m. They came in more than
25 fire units.
The factory was vacant when
the fire began. Firefighters
entered the building where pos-
sible, but the fire grew rapidly,
feeding off the. partially con-
structed trailers and adhesives
stored inside the facility.

SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 8/NUMBER 41


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Fireworks are
as dangerous as they are beauti-
ful, which is why they are reg-
ulated.
The Bureau of Alcohol
Tobacco and Firearms and the
U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission are charged with
the oversight of the manufac-
ture, sale and use of fireworks
nationally.
Since restrictions were intro-
duced, the injury rate has
declined by 84 percent, but the
numbers are still sobering.
For example, the CPSC esti-
mates there were 9,600 emer-
gency room-treated injuries
associated with fireworks last
year; 6,600 of them occurring
between June 19 and July 19.
National standards are mini-
mums; states, counties and
municipalities may further
restrict the use of fireworks.
Seven states have banned
fireworks altogether, and
another seven allow only the
use of sparklers or novelties.
Florida is one of 37 states
that allow consumer fireworks
(formally known as Class C
fireworks). These may not con-
tain more than 50 milligrams of
explosive material (about one
16th the weight of a typical
aspirin).
Highlands County has no
special policies beyond those
the state has set.
The general rule of thumb
governing fireworks is simple
and boils down to a slogan: "If
it goes bang, or it moves," it's
illegal.
See BANG, page 7A


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Owner Judy Ray (left) and Gladys Mikelson, both of Sebring, are
offering buy one get one free and a chance to win free fireworks at
the TNT tent at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Sebring. Fireworks
sales have been disappointing due to bad weather conditions. 'All
we've had is rain, it's a bummer,' Ray said Wednesday afternoon.

Hell's Kitchen coming



to Jeni's on South Lake


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Many peo-
ple have seen the new restau-
rant-based reality show "Hell's
Kitchen" on the Fox Television
Network. Come the end of the
month, local diners will have an
opportunity to experience a
toned-down version at Jeni's on
South Lake.
"This will be an adult
evening," cautioned Jeni's chef
Malcolm Trott, noting that
viewer's warnings are flashed
onscreen periodically during
the television show.
He said although world-
renowned chef Gordon Ramsey
is "bleeped out nearly every
other word," his performance
would be a bit more tame, but
still "not for children."
Adapted from the wildly suc-
cessful British short-run series
of the same name, "Hell's
Kitchen" follows a dozen com-
peting chefs through the rigors
of food service.
Network press releases say
the show is designed to capture
"the fiery drama, intrigue and
high emotion as the restaurant's
opening night approaches."
"The show is for everybody
but most of us in the restaurant
business watch it religiously,"
said Trott. "It really is very
entertaining."
Ramsey, the star of the pro-
gram, has been voted Chef of
the Year in England nine years
in a row.
"He's from the old school.
He screams and yells and
swears and degrades people.
That's how he feels he gets the
most out of them by putting


them under a lot of pressure,"
Trott said.
That is a philosophy to which
Trott does not necessarily sub-
scribe.
He surmised that while some
of the program might be embel-
lished to pump up the ratings,
other situations actually have
happened to him during his
culinary career.
"The Chef's Association
really has changed that philoso-
phy. A lot of us believe that
those who scream in the kitchen
really don't have a lot of control
over what's going on," he said.
The set-up will be much the
same as the TV show, with a red
team and a blue team serving
color-coordinated tables.
The local contest will put
two of Jeni's top culinary arti-
sans head to head in competi-
tion. Amy Cochran, who at one
time was the executive chef at
. Zeno's, and Adam Proctor, a
certified chef and a graduate of
Johnson and Wales, will com-
pete.
Restaurant owner Jeni
Altman will be responsible to
split both the house and the
serving staff into red and blue
divisions.
"The customers will get a
card to fill out at the end of the
meal where they will rate both
their food and their service," he
explained. "The totals of those
scores will determine who wins
and who looses."
Trott said he planned to pre-
pare their version of the "Hell's
Kitchen" four-course menu
including appetizers such as
crab risotto, lobster spaghetti,
soup or salad. Entrees will


include Beef Wellington with
Tiramisu or Chocolate Lava
Cake for desert.
"We have enough experience
between our two chefs to pull it
off," Trott said.
Unlike the TV program,
which is based on the very pop-
ular format of "Survivor," the
winners of the competition at
Jeni's will not get their own
restaurant.
"The losing team will have
to clean the whole restaurant
while the winning team will be
able to sit down with me and
have a glass of Chateau Neuve
de Pap," Trott said.
Just like "Hell's Kitchen,"
the Jeni's, event will be aired on
Fox-TV, but on a bit more local
level.
"Charlie Belcher of WTVT-
13 is coming down with his
crew to cover it," Trott said.
From their Tampa studios,
Belcher confirmed the plans.
"It sounds like a neat thing.
We'll come down that Friday,"
he said.
Belcher said depending on
the news load that day, the crew
either would do a live shot from
the restaurant or save the tape
and broadcast it the following
Monday in connection with the
"Hell's Kitchen" season finale.
Patrons have, made reserva-
tions from as far away as
Orlando and Vero Beach to take
part in the event. It will be
staged on Friday and Saturday
evenings, July 29-30. Dinners
will be $39.95. Those who want
additional information may call
Jeni's on South Lake at 453-
0034.


By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Air Force Range timber
operation didn't see that much
damage from last year's first
two hurricanes. Then Jeanne
came to town.
When Hurricane Jeanne blew
through, she took out about
63,000 tons of trees and did
about $675,000 in damage on
her own. All three hurricanes
together did $750,000 in dam-
age to the timber plantations,
forester and timber operation
manager Kurt Olsen said.
Fortunately, they were able
to recover some of the losses by
clear-cutting any stands of trees
with more than 30 percent loss.
"There was more out there
than we could contend with,"
Olsen said.
Some stands would have to
come down anyway, Olsen said.
The range is clearing planta-
tions to make open grassland
for the Florida Grasshopper
Sparrow. Other stands have
been cleared in anticipation that
the U.S. Navy will have a live
ordnance range on the Air Force
range.
Olsen can't risk having
shrapnel from bombs embed-
ded in trees that are to be sold
for either lumber or mulch.
Olsen made the choice to
clear cut damaged areas rather
just harvest the dead trees for
many reasons. First, getting
trucks and equipment into the
stands to take just the damaged
trees could damage the live


trees, killing them. Leaving a
large number of dead trees in an
area could attract bugs, which
would infest and kill the live
trees.
Finally, cutting live wood
with the dead wood increased
the price loggers could get for
their loads. That increased their
incentive to help the range clear
the deadwood.
The hurricanes had put an
abundance of wood on the mar-
ket. Where loggers had been
getting as much as $5-$6 per
ton, they only got about $2 per
'ton, especially for dead trees.
Typically, Olsen said, four full-


grown (800-pound) trees make
one ton.
Prices are 30 percent down
on solid wood, he said, and as
much as 70 down for chip wood
and pulp.
People in Zolfo Springs, for
example, who only cut the
deadwood, got only one-fifth of
what they could have charged,
Olsen said.
This year, Olsen was able to
deliver nearly $35,000 to the
Highlands County commission,
thanks in part to the clear cut-
ting. Forestry, in total, brought
about $400,000 in revenue to
the range last year, he said.

Lightning takes out two


vehicles in Avon Park


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It was rain-,
ing, but not thundering
Wednesday afternoon when a
lightning bolt came down and
made havoc for Jim and Mary
Rice.
At about 4:45 p.m., Jim Rice
was working at his desk eight
feet away from the outside wall
of the house when a bolt of
lightning came down the side of
their house on Winthrop Street,
just three blocks off Lake
Avenue. It dug a hole 12 inches
Deep in their brick planter,
knocked out one of the bricks
and split another brick in the
wall of the house.
"It came right out of the


blue," Rice said. "It was rain-
ing, but there was no thunder."
The bolt blew out a section
of the irrigation pipe, hit the
pavement of their driveway and
attacked the electrical systems
in both of their cars a 2004
Chevrolet Silverado pickup and
a 2003 Dodge Caravan.
The damage to the house,
even including a blown fuse for
the washing machine, is proba-
bly still less than his $500
insurance deductible, Rice said.
However, the lightning bolt
blew fuses in the pickup,
messed up the. radio, airbag.

estimated repair is $3.,50iC) and

PHIL AITINGER/News-Sun
Forester Kurt Olsen with the Avon Park Air Force Range demon- -
strates why his office clear-cut some stands of trees with heavy hur-
ricane damage and left some with less damage alone. Dead trees left
over from Hurricane Jeanne attract boring insects that would infest
healthy trees. Rather than risk physical damage to healthy trees by
loggers taking only dead trees, he let them harvest whole stands, giv-
ing them a better overall quality wood to sell.

like that and you just came to
New York City?' she said.
When she went to the call
back, not only did she have to
sing, Guzman had to show her
dancing and improvisational
abilities as well.
She' said the program would
allow her to learn more about
dancing on an "learn as you
learn" basis.
"They pay me for my
rehearsals but they don't have
exclusive rights to me. I can do
other projects like commercials
if I want to," she said.
Guzman did her performance
for The Met's Casanova in the
apartment of composer Pablo
Zinge.r.
"Francisco came from Italy
to sing a show with the
Metropolitan Opera in Central
Park and while he was here, he
wanted me to sing for him to
basically assess whether I
should continue with my career
or if I should alter,my dreams,"


she said.
Casanova was very encour-
aging to the local girl, telling
Guzman that she "has the
voice" but needed work on her
Italian.
"I don't know the language
and my accent isn't very good,"
she said.
To remedy the situation,
Guzman is enrolling in a school
to learn Italian.
"I even bought one of those
"study at home' tapes so I can
get a head start on it," she said.
In the interim, Zinger has
asked the Sebring native to
attend a workshop to learn to
sing in Spanish.
"I'm going to that next
month," she said.
Even though she is fluent in
Spanish, Guzman said there are
different styles of music and
she has a lot to learn.
"Actually I've only learned
choral music singing in
Sebring," she said.

Sophomore's life is lesson in leadership

Teen attends HOBY
conference in Orlando
By RACHEL PEACOCK


in school and the community. qualified her
for regional recognion
Conner represented A\on Park High School
at the Hugh O'Bnan Youth Leadership program, or
HOBY. regional seminar in Orlando this June One
sophomore %ais selected from each high school in
Central Florida to attend.
"I learned the concept of ha% ing passion and per-
sistence to follow %our goals and become a leader,"
Conner said.
Around 140 sophomores participated in lectures
and listened to panels focused on developing stu-
dents into leaders at their homes, schools, work-
places and communities.
The seminar theme was "HOBY-opol," a spin off
the Monopoly board game. It used small group dis-
cussion as its main learning technique, and groups
%were named after Monopoly game pieces.
HOBY was started in 195S by actor Hugh
O'Brian. The program sent 22.000 selection packets
to public and private high schools in the United
States this year.
Conner was selected because she met the skill
requirements outlined in the HOBY selection packet,
which included community service and a charismatic
personality.
"You get more blessings from giving, and I hae a
blessed life." Conner said.
She volunteerss her time teaching dance for the
Family Christian Associaton of America's Anointed
Butterflies. The group is made up of about 15
dancers %\ho are 5-10 years old.
Conner also play s the key board and teaches a
praise dance group for the Vision Christian
Community Church congregation.
Conner said she is involved at school and in the
community because her parents, Alvin and Willette,
influenced her at an early age.
"Being a resource officer in the schools I notice a
lot of kids, who aren't troubled kids, get into trouble
because they aren't busy doing positive things," said
her father, Alvin Conner.
Next year, Conner will hold her second term as
vice president for the FCAA at the beginning of her

junior year. The FCAA is a teen leadership club
recently started at the high school.
Aside from being the club's vice president, Conner
also belongs to its Diamond Steppers, a rhy thruc
dance troupe, and Nubian Queens, an African dance
group.
Her athletic abilities aren't limited to dance.
Conner plays for the Red De\ ils \arsity girls' soft-
ball and basketball teams.
Academically. Conner is a member of the National
Honors Society and. has a 4.6-1 weighted grade-point
advantage.
Her list of accomplishments have proven her
leadership potential community, at school, on the
playing field and at church. She is still undecided
about what direction the future will take her, but she
is certain that she will succeed.
"(My parents) have always told me I can do all
things through Christ who strengthens me." Conner
said.

Walk off those extra pounds


Walk off those extra pounds
and put some spring in your
step.
It lowers your risk for cancer,
diabetes, heart disease and
stroke, boosts brain power and
helps people lose weight. With
warmer weather here, there is
no better time to.start walking.
TOPS Club Inc. (Take Off
Pounds Sensibly) members
know the best way to get
healthy is to-eat less and exer-
cise more. Walking may very
well be the easiest way to incor-
porate exercise into our busy
lives. TOPS Chapters all over
the United States and Canada
have developed walking pro-
grams and members report fab-
ulous losses.
Walking uses large muscle
groups that are essential for fit-
ness said Anne Ruelle, regis-
tered dietitian, diabetic educa-
tor and advisor to TOPS.


"Walking at speeds of four to
five miles per hour can burn
about 100 calories or more per
mile. And walking has the low-
est drop-out rate of almost all
other forms of exercise," Ruelle
said.
To lose weight, TOPS recom-
mends that members walk
17,000 steps each day 'and a
minimum of 10,000 steps per
day to maintain weight. Some
TOPS members incorporated
the following tips to make
walking more enjoyable:
Walk with a friend;
Listen to music or books
on tape;


If walking indoors on a
treadmill, read a book, watch
television or listen to music;
Daydream: Movement is
conducive to daydreaming.
Fantasizing and daydreaming
are important creative activi-
ties. Walking provides a great
opportunity to allow creative
juices to flow. Plan your next
vacation or imagine yourself in
a dream role. Have fun and
watch the time fly.
Successful weight manage-"
ment requires regular physical
activity. When the weather gets
warm, TOPS members get
moving.

Fireworks can take the sparkle from eyes this Fourth of July


Special to the News-Sun
It's hard to imagine but
you'll still hear the rumble of a
"quarter stick" in some parts of
Highlands County this July. As
in a quarter stick of dynamite.
Because of this, Prevent
Blindness America and Dr.
Newsom of Newsom Eye &
Laser Center are reminding the
public that June is National
Fireworks Safety Month, as an
awareness campaign geared to
make this Fourth of July fun
and safe for the entire family.
The effort will continue through


Independence Day.
According to the latest statis-
tics from the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Cofnmission
(CPSC) fireworks accounted
for approximately 9,300
injuries in 2003 with nearly 14
percent of those eye related.
These figures do not take into
account .those who were left
untreated, injuries that occur
anonymously to children and
bystanders in the backyards of
America. This is of great con-
cern for Newsom, a respected
eye care professional in the


Highlands County area.
"Every year, I see or hear
about those whose eyesight has
been greatly compromised or
lost due to carelessness when
handling fireworks. The con-
sensus among eye care profes-
sionals is not to play with fire
-' literally. Leave the fire
works to the festivals and fairs
in your area. They organize'and
plan the best displays and
charge little or nothing for you
to enjoy."
Newsom goes on to say that


people often believe they are
handling so called "safe" alter-
natives when they buy
sparklers, bottle rockets or other
less volatile pyrotechnics. He
says they are mistaken.
Sparklers are responsible for a
majority of the injuries to chil-
dren under five. They can burn
at 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit,
enough to rob a small child of
their eyesight. "Enough to melt
gold," warns Newsom.
Those who wish to use fire-
works with family and friends
are urged to wear eye protec-


Hurricane Necessities: Bottled



water, batteries and patience


tion. Safety goggles are readily
available at your nearby hard-
ware store. In many counties,
fireworks are heavily regulated
due to the Federal Hazardous


Substance Act or are illegal.
Check with your local law
enforcement agency regarding
laws and ordinances for fire-
work use.


Helpful tips about firework safety
1. Do not rub the eye. Rubbing the eye may increase bleed-
ing or make the injury worse.
2. Do not attempt to rinse out the eye. This can be even
more damaging than rubbing.
3. Do not apply pressure to the eye itself. Holding or tap-
ing a foam cup or the bottom of a juice carton to the eye are
just two tips. Protecting the eye from further contact with any
item, is the goal.
4. Do not stop for medicine! Over-the-counter pain reliev-
ers will not do much to relieve pain. Aspirin and ibuprofen
can thin the blood, increasing bleeding. Go to the emergency
room at once. This is more important than stopping for a pain
reliever.
5. Do not apply ointment. Ointment, which may not be
sterile, makes the area around the eye slippery and harder for
the doctor to examine.


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun correspondent
After nearly 40 years with
only minor hurricane side-
swipes along the way, in 2004,
four hurricanes struck the state.
The three that foraged for
things to destroy in Highlands
County also awoke to the reali-
ty of tropical weather a human
population that, something like
a modem-day Rip Van Winkle,
read with a yawn the annual
Hurricane Guide, and then went
back to the peaceful but
potentially deadly content-
ment of complacency.
If you know what you are
looking at, you can still seethe
destruction these atmospheric
behemoths left behind as they
panted and lumbered slowly on
their way. The summer 2005
sun will make the blue tarps
bluer, and shine on fallen, dying
trees in the woods, and some
tom and twisted signs. All of
these warnings portend what
may lie ahead.
Most people are familiar with
the hurricane prediction "cone"
that starts at the location of the
hurricane "eye" and spreads out
wider and wider as the path of
the storm becomes impossible
to predict with any certainty
beyond about 36 hours.
According to retired National
'Humcane Center Director Bob


Sheets, Hurricane Jeanne is a
good example of the inexact
science of meteorology.
Predicting where a storm will
go is something like standing
on the bank of a wide river and
trying to pick out where an
eddy or whirlpool will form.
* Jeanne turned northward
well out to sea on the Atlantic
and headed toward Bermuda,
no threat to the U.S. mainland,
certainly not Highlands County.
Teasing weathermen for about
two weeks, Jeanne circled near-
ly twice before taking aim at the
state's Atlantic seaboard, and
when she did, she rapidly
restored her earlier strength and
swept inland, her eye looking
down at Okeechobee and
Highlands counties.
There's a cone of prepara-
tion, too.
Most residents begin with
working electricity and abun-
.dant tap water, a refrigerator
filled with food, and those with
access to the Internet have myr-
iad sites to follow hurricane
updates. A link to many Web
sites, www.trsc.com/ref_hurri-
canes.html, is an example of
today's cutting-edge hurricane-
forecast technology. Of course,
with the 2005 hurricane fre-
quency predictions in near
agreement, ww'v-. nt's.au..'. 'i,
anrid hurricanie.atmos.colostate.


edu/Forecasts/2005/april2005,
are popular hits this time of
year.
If you have no generator, and
your house is still in tact, the
cone of provisions narrows as
the eye draws closer. Most of
the services most residents take
as routine begin to shut down as
the eye approaches, as wind
speeds reach beyond the hurri-
cane threshold of 74 mph.
Eventually, all that is left is
bottled water, batteries and
patience. Hurricanes last for
many hours, doing without rou-
tine services may last for days,
even weeks. Little by little, and
suddenly at times, Jeanne shut
down the lives of more than,
90,000 Highlands County resi-
dents.
In those hours and days that
follow the storm, the endearing
battery-operated transistor
radio may become your best
friend. During Jeanne, several
AM and FM radio stations
simulcast a Tampa TV station,
the only link to the outside
world offered to county resi-
dents.
The cone of services that was
so wide only hours earlier had
suddenly narrowed to a point at
the center of Jeanne's eye.
Now that most of us have
awakened from more ifhanbfour
decd d's. f6hi"compi 1cency, iTt


might do well for us to take
note of the animals around us
who made it through the storms
of 2004.
One of the more amazing
sights were the osprey nests
built on the top of utility poles.
On that Sunday morning Jeanne
was partying upon Central
Florida, the ospreys remained
nestled together more than 30
feet above the ground, up where
the wind was not broken by tall
trees.
"Prepare, be ready, and think
about what happens after the
storm passes" must be their
message this hurricane season,
each year, when- the powerful
sun shines directly over the
Tropic of Cancer, on June 21,
between Havana and Key West,
less than 200 miles from here.
Sheets explained that this is
something like putting a pan of
water directly over the flame;
given time, it begins to boil.
Weathermen say that it does-
n't help that "we are in a neutral
El Nino," when historic records
show more hurricanes form in
the Caribbean Sea and the west-
ern Atlantic.
Come to think of it, it might
also be a good idea to have a
big, clean pan on hand to boil
-water in, but onlyif you have a
hirl, 'tlLI, grill to dook it On.

Fire destroys

Lorida RV home
News-Sun
LORIDA No one was
injured, but a fire in the dawn
hours Wednesday destroyed a
recreational vehicle home and
two adjacent vehicles.
Eugene Burger, 73, escaped
a fire that started shortly before
4:43 a.m. Wednesday in a space
heater in the bathroom of his
1991 motor home. It was
parked under a metal carport,
flanked on both sides b.y a
semitrailer and a motor boat,
both of which also caught fire.
All three were destroyed
along with several other items,
including tools arid a motor
scooter, said Gene Walker,
investigator with the Bureau of
Fire and Arson Investigations,
Division of the State Fire
Marshall. He ruled the fire as
accidental. Total damage was
$175,000.
At 10:30 p.m. the night
before, lightning hit a power
pole about one street away, he
said. It caught fire and shut
down power to the area. That
may be related, Walker said.

SECTION C + FRIDAY, JULY 1, 2005


NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


Treat women

with respect
"Every violent behavior
has a victim and an abuser
and the vast majority of the
time the abuser is male," said
Jackson Katz, relationship
expert of Mentors in
Violence Prevention. He said
it is critical that we talk with
our sons about healthy rela-
tionship.
Katz said, "While young
women are capable of acting
cruelly or even using vio-
lence, the vast majority of
abuse in teen relationships is
perpetrated by young men. It
is not anti-male to say this ..
it is simply acknowledging
reality."
Many parents understand
the importance of talking
with their daughters about
learning how to stay safe. It
is the parents responsibility
to address the issue of treat-
ing others with respect with
our sons. A parent's conduct
is being modeled by their
children.
According to the
Department of Justice, more
than 90 percent of all rela-
tionship abuse victims are
female and most abusers are
male.
Society tells our boys in
order for them to be manly
they have to act tough, to
develop a manly disposition.
Boys are told to ignore pain,
and not to show emotions.
When boys are hugged by
their mothers, or are openly
affectionate with their moth-
ers, they are criticized as
being "a mama's boy." Yet a
different response is given
when it's the dad. But there
are dads who don't know
how to hug, and are unable
to do so. Anger is easier dis-
played than love.
There is a need for our
sons to be taught how a
wdman should be treated. By
his mother or a respected
family member. Of course,
there are women and girls
within our society who do
not know how to be treated,
due to the environment in
which they were raised.
There also are men who
don't know how to treat
females, because of the
behavioral qualities displayed
around them from birth.
Courtesy, gentleness, kind-
ness and love were never a
part of their upbringing.
They know how to intimi-
date, threaten, isolate and
cause pain. Therefore, it is
difficult for, them to know
how to treat the females in
their lives positively, when
they've had no model no
foundation on which to base
their behavior.
We need a few good citi-
zens. Are you willing to
invest a little bit of time to
mentor our youth in building
character? Or are you willing
to blend with society and
snicker when tragedy occurs
and play the blame game
when the son of a neighbor,
friend or family hurts anoth-
er? Show you care in a prac-
tical way by reaching out to
our youth. Let them know
that violent intimidating
behavior is not the answer.
Show our sons that there is
more to life than exhibiting
strength through violence.
Finally, the Liz Claibome
Foundation advises, if your
son confides. in you that he
has become violent in his
relationship, you need to sup-
port him as well. Let him
know that you love him, and
that you don't think he is ter-
rible person. Nevertheless, be
Firm in letting him know that
his behavior has to change.

News-Sun correspondent
PALMDALE
eff Harrod's packed a lot into his
40 years by being a bull rider, alli-
gator wrestler, snake handler, and
midwife to a Bengal tiger.
Harrod, who's half Cherokee,
was raised on a reservation in
Kentucky. Although his appearance
favors his Irish mother, his love of
nature and all things wild is pure
Cherokee.
Harrod, owner of Vanishing Species
Wildlife has res-
cued and loved i. '
exotic animals : [
since he was 8 .
years old. At age t
13 he received a
license for han-
dling exotic ani- '
mals. Now he
holds state and
federal licenses
because some of
his animals are
endangered.
"I found my
first skull and
started collecting
fossils as a kid. As
I got older, my dis-
coveries got big-
ger," Harrod said.
He'd accumulat-
ed boxes of skins
and fossils for
decades. After
working with the
Seminole tribe
doing shows, and
viewing their
exhibits, he real-
ized he had more Chewbacca the
artifacts than they cougar, or Florida
did. That's when panther, caresses
he got the idea for and hugs Jeff
his own museum. Harrod.
"This is my
legacy. If I die, it is here for future gen-
erations to see," Harrod said.
The indoor.museum contains Native
American artifacts and fossils from the
Peace River, Fisheating Creek and the
Withlocoochee River. There are
dinosaur bones from south of Lake
Okeechobee and the 'Holy Land' (near
the Broward County line.)
Approaching the museum, there's a
shaded picnic area with tables where a
family can hang out all day, and take
their time seeing everything. Water and
soda is available for sale. This is an
educational facility and most of these
animals have been rescued after being


viewing
abandoned, abused or living in unac-
ceptable conditions. Each one has a
story that Harrod delights iri sharing.
He lectures in schools with his outreach
program called "In-School Field Trip,"
where he brings an animal and tells all
about it, its species, and how it was res-
cued, etc.
Three birds greet people at the
entrance to the air-conditioned museum:
A Malaccan, a blue front Amazon and
an African gray.
"Someone had them about 15 years
as pets, then tired of them. Collectively,
they speak
About 300
words, often all
three jabbering
at once when
visitors enter,"
he said.
Of all the
exotics in
Harrod's
domain, the
birds, as
unthreatening
as they appear,
are the only,


The
lizards were found loose in the wild, as
were two pythons Harrod captured near
a rest stop in the Everglades. One was
more than 200 pounds and 18 feet, 2
inches long. Someone had tired of it as
a pet. The eastern diamondbaick rattler,
was found on his property, which was
overgrown when he bought it.
"The weeds were taller than the
fences'... perfect for snakes. I've been
clearing it in phases," Harrod said.
A Columbian boa was rescued from
someone's back yard. An albino
Burmese python is nine feet long and
weighs 85 pounds.
"I hatched it from an egg and now
it's 2 years old. Its mom was 17-foot
and the dad, 15-foot. Kids buy these
tarantulas and scorpions and then get
bitten or stung. Normally the venom
from these creatures isn't that toxic
unless you happen to be allergic, then
you could even die. These are not good
pets," Harrod said.
Harrod has had his share of snake
bites.
"I've been bitten by snakes five
times: twice by water moccasins, once
by a rattler and two'that I'm not sure of.
I spent 30 years with the Boy Scouts
Order of the Arrow (Native American
Dancing) and was dancing barefoot
when I was bitten once."
Motioning toward the huge diamond-
back named Sarah, he said, "that one
almost killed me." Pointing to a scar on
the inside of his left wrist, he said, "She
got me right there, injecting venom
directly into the large vein. Within 30


seconds 'I was unconscious," Harrod
said. If there hadn't been someone close
by witnessing the incident and sum-
moning medical attention, he no doubt
would have died.
The moccasins and rattlers have.
hematoxins, but coral snakes have neu-
rotoxins, which are the most dangerous.
"But you must be doing something very
wrong to be bitten by them, because
they're not aggressive and their fangs
are in the rear of their mouth," Harrod
said.
Vanishing Species Wildlife covers 10
acres. Originally this place was strictly
an alligator farm, raising them for their
meat and hides.
"I don't believe in killing anything. I
think you should only use what you
need to survive. Most people forget that
all of the animals were created first and
we're supposed to live in harmony with
them," Harrod said.
There's ducks, geese and swans on a
quiet pond. Tuikeys, goats, and other
farm animals graze quietly. Roaming
freely on the grounds are 32 peacocks.
There are tortoises (land turtles,) nine
different water turtles, and a 140-pound
alligator snapping turtle, which con-
stantly holds his mouth open and will
clamp down on anything passing'by.
Since his neckcan stretch an additional
six to seen inches, one music be careful
near him.
* Te most fascinating part of a visit to
Vanishing Species Wildlife is hearing
about individual animals, each of which
Harrod has given a name. There are
three cotta mundos. "It's a South
American animal, like a raccoon on
steroids. Someone smuggled this one
into the Miami airport in a briefcase.
They're not endangered, but you must
have permits to bring them into the
country," Harrod said'.
Harrod points out two alligators
lounging near a large pond (Elvis and
Priscilla are 14 foot long.) He then

'Bewitched' misses magic of classic TV show


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Maybe it's time to cast a spell over the
current tedious trend of turning old TV
shows into feature films.
The recycling and reinvention has gone
from "The Flintstones" and "The Adams
Family" to "Bewitched," which ran on
ABC from 1964-72. Elizabeth McGovern
was the witch Samantha, who marries a
mortal and wants to be a normal housewife,
but resorts to witchery when her human
wiles fail. It was akin to another hit of its
era "I Dream of Jeannie" which is being
turned into a feature film even as you read
this.
Like other made-from-TV movies,
"Bewitched" is proof of what gets lost in
the translation. Few tend to be able to
stretch a 30-minute concept into 90 minutes
ol entertainment.
The lurching, unfocused. script comes
from director Nora Ephron ("Sleepless in
Seattle," "You've Got Mail" and "Lucky
Numbers"), and her sister, Delia. They
relied on the stars to shine, and they didn't
give them much to work with.
But what stars they have Oscar winner
Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell,
Hollywood's hardest-working man.
They're a match made in commercial
movie heaven if only because usually they
.work opposite sides of the aisle. Kidman is
the darling of the artsy high-brow set;
Ferrell is the hero of the low-brow, beer-
drinking crowd. There ought to be some-
thing for everyone.
How much you enjoy "Bewitched" will
depend entirely on your passion for
Kidman or Ferrell. If you're their number
one fan meaning you'll sit through any-
thing they make, period then
,"Bewt ped" 'is ypur movie to sit through.
It' sile etherActor's best work. Kidman
professes to have studied McGovern for her
part as Isabel, -but her breathless, blonde
and dippy coquettishness puts her closer to
a smart Marilyn Monroe. Ferrell throws

'Bewitched.'


tantrums and soars on flights of egomanical
fancy, which would be more amusing if it
were not so familiar.
Kidman's Isabel has exactly the same life
experiences as TV's Samantha except that
she has a interfering father (Michael Caine)
instead of an interfering mother to reproach
her for abandoning witchcraft to become a
normal, boring human.
Having decided to give up a witch's lot
of wiggling her nose to get" whatever she
wants, Isabel literally bumps into Jack
Wyatt (Ferrell), a fallen star whose last
$100 million movie grossed $1.5 million
(OK, that was funny). For Isabel, it's kooky
love at first sight.
Since Jack's career is in shambles, he's
signed on to play Darren as in "nobody
remembers Darren" in a TV revival of
"Bewitched." He latches onto Isabel

Zombie series should be laid to rest


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
In 1968, George A. Romero took
$115,000, went to the farmhouses and
cemeteries of small-town Pennsylvania,
and shot a little zombie picture called
"Night of the Living Dead."
Looking like an extended black-and--
- white home .oyie, complete with chedsy"
acting and bad makeup, "Night of the
Living Dead" became an instant cult classic
that proved the appeal of no-budget horror
and set Romero on his career path.
As he followed it up with "Dawn of the
Dead" (1978), "Day of the Dead" (1985),
"Night of the Living" (2004), the budgets
,grew but the plots remained the same the
dead resurrected as brainless, soulless flesh
eaters who feed on the living, turning them
into zombies.
Now there's more. With "Land of the
Dead," Romero returns to the landscape
that set him among the princes of horror
cinema. But like the endless editions of
"Nightmare on Ehn Street" or "Friday the
13th," "'Land of the Dead"-proves the rule
on horror flicks: Making more doesn't
improve upon them.
With even less humanity than "Night of
the Living Dead," "Land of the Dead" is
visceral and primitive not only in its sub-
ject matter but in its ideas. It tries to have a
point some trivia about each person's
obligations to his fellow man and it tries
to exploit certain current events such as
President Bush's war on terrorism. On both
counts, it's as precociously juvenile as
watching a sixth-grade play.
In a riff on "Mad Max," "Land of the
Dead" takes place in a futuristic world
where the living have retreated behind the
walls of a city, and the living dead are left


with the remains of the world.
In the human'town, the rich enjoy gra-
cious, elegant living as always and
force the poor to do their dirty work. One
cleanup man is Cholo (John Leguizamo),
who ventures into undead territory each
night to scavenge for food, medicine and
high -pnced liquor.
Cholo's mercenary tactics are scorned by
Riley (Simon Baker) a true idealist, who
fights for what he knows to be right even if
he doesn't believe in it.. He wants to save
the citizens from being eaten by zombies
and used by Kaufman (Dennis Hopper), the
richest and most influential man in town.
Riley's real dream, though, is to go to some
faraway, isolated paradise, where he can
escape people altogether.
The biggest threat to the humans is that
the pathetic zombies are evolving in intelli-
gence and becoming smarter about break-
ing into the walled city. But when Kaufman
snubs Cholo, his most loyal lapdog, Cholo
steals a bomb and threatens to blow up the
city. It leads Kaufman to make pronounce-
ments like: "I will not negotiate with terror-
ists."
You have to wonder who are the. good
guys and the bad guys. As'a man done
wrong, the narcissistic Cholo is a gutsy,
sympathetic villain a big part of me want-
ed to see him launch that bomb. Riley is a
wishy-washy hero who pretends to save his
fellow city-dwellers, and who comes to pity
and respect the zombies how dumb is that
- once he finds a sure-fire way to escape
them.
There is little comic relief most of
"Land of the Dead" pontificates shallow
ideals and exploits gore but one character
stands out: Riley's best friend, the mutilat-
ed Charlie (Robert Joy), who finds a joke in

On the other hand, for those wanting
mind-numbing zombie gore, Romero deliv-
ers the goods. Expect to see decapitations,
shootings, bloody, severed limbs, and a
zombie feeding feast, as well as a few
sights too grotesque to mention.
That seems to be Romero's forte -.leav-

It is our human
nature to do what we
enjoy first and post-
pone the unpleasant
tasks. In some
instances it may
make no difference
in what sequence we
do things. At other
times the order may
make all the differ-
ence in the world.
It may be more
pleasant to wash and
polish a new car than
to mow the lawn we
have mowed so


A MOMENT

WITH GOD

Rev. Richard
Fyffe


many times before. But if later
it begins to rain, it would have
been better to have mowed the
lawn first.
It may not matter whether
Tommy plays baseball or does
his homework first after school.
But if later he doesn't have
enough time to finish those
studies, the next day in the
classroom he will wish he had
completed his homework
before he picked up his glove to
play.
In God's plan of salvation
Christ's death had to be the
bases for any change ;brought
about in us. It could not be oth-
erwise, since "we were still sin-
ners."
We could not approach God


to sue for peace. The
searchlight of God's
holiness had exposed
the corruptness of our
lives. We had to admit
we had fallen far short
of his requirements.
His law justly con-
demned us.
On the other hand,
neither could the holy
God accept us, the
ungodly, until he had
dealt with our sin.
Forgiveness and
acceptance could not
come until atonement


had been made.
0 blessed and holy day when
God's love went into action!
Instead of abandoning us to die
in our sins, he decreed the death
of his own Son on our behalf.
When Jesus died on Calvary,
the innocent for the guilty,
God's justice was satisfied.
Our debt was marked "paid
in full." Christ absorbed the
sentence of condemnation that
had been passed on us. From
before the world's foundation
this was God's gracious plan for
us. The Apostle Paul puts it this
way, "God demonstrates his
own love for us in this: While
we were still sinners, Christ
died for us." (Romans 5:8)
"Don't tell me you love me!


Show me!" we sometimes say
to one another. In the words of
Paul the Holy Spirit is nudging
us, urging us to take God at his
word, but not blindly. The
gospel is more than a message
from God saying, "I love you."
The Scriptures present con-
crete proof of the depths of
God's love in the death of
Jesus Christ. By nature we are
afraid to meet our Maker. We
know what we deserve. But
once we have visited the cross
we are no longer afraid.
For there we see Christ, cru-
cified for us. And "we love him,
because he first love us and
gave himself for us." As God
showed his love for us through
the death of his Son, may we
now show our love for him
through the actions of our lives
as we live our lives in his name
and bring glory and honor to
him. May we always give
thanks for the evidence of
God's love and pray that our
love for him will never grow
cold.

Continued from 1C
shows where Priscilla laid eggs
near the tree in a two-foot nest
and has been packing it down.
Two 1-year-old Bengal tigers
named Cheech and Chong are
running and splashing in the
water. Their mother, Darlene, is
.8 years old. She weighs 450


pounds but is considered small
for the species. "I've had
Darlene since she was aban-
doned by her mom at 3 days
old. She's my show cat, and
even rides in my truck. We have
a bond," Harrod said.
There are two lions. that
weren't permitted, which
Harrod rescued and raised since
5 months old. Also, there's a
bobcat that was kept in.some-


one's house until it hurt the
owner. "Wild animals are not
good pets. I presently have 11
cats here, but will be bringing
50 additional large cats from
my other facility. I trust them
the best. Big cats are my pas-
sion. It is a precious experience
just to watch them run and
play," Harrod said.
A monkey named Grinch was
rescued as an abused pet.
Debbie the raccoon was a pet
that was given up because it got
too wild. A nocturnal porcupine
is asleep during the daytime
visit.
"My grandfather was a
Cherokee shaman who was said
to talk to animals. He died when
I was 5 or 6. My father was a
full Cherokee and my Mom was
Irish. My parents always
encouraged me with the ani-
mals. My dad used to rodeo
with the Seminoles down here,
and I did also. I rode bulls from
age 14-26, but I wasn't good
enough to make it into the big
time. I've had 13 concussions
and 100 broken bones. Today I
get that same adrenaline rush
with my animals," Harrod said.
He remembers his first time
coming down to Florida for a
week when he was 11 or 12.
"When I saw the Indians wres-
tle alligators, I said 'I want to
do that" and my father said 'no
you don't.' But I was hooked
and there was no turning back,"
Harrod said. He has lived his
life on the edge, but it has not
been done carelessly or with
reckless abandon. "The Indians
helped me and told .me things.
I'm closest to God when I'm
with my animals," Harrod said.


He doesn't claim to talk to
animals like his grandfather, but
there is definitely some kind of
communication ... a sixth
sense. "They give me uncondi-
tional love. And I always know
when something is wrong,"
Harrod said.

BEWITCHEDl
Continued from 2C I


"Bewitched" into his personal
promotional vehicle.
Like Samantha, Isabel
resorts to using her witch skills
to salvage the situations that are
beyond her human control,
while repeatedly vowing she'll
never do it again. Like Darren -
or rather the actors who played
him Jack is mortified to find
himself becoming less memo-
rable with every take.
Kidman and Ferrell are
entertaining individually, but
mixing them together is like
serving caviar with pork rinds.
They never connect and, what's
more, they never made me
believed they deserved to be in
the same movie, much less the
same movie relationship.
Extended cameos by Michael
Caine and Shirey Maclaine
goose up this show even though
these actors are mostly wasted.


The story is ponderous and
predictable, and prone to
repeating itself. That happens at
length when Isabel's dotty Aunt
Clare (Carole Shelley) casts a
huge spell over Jack, and Isabel
regrets it. We see what would
have happened .if magic had
steered the outcome, and what
happens with nature takes its
course. Both times, we end up
at the same place.
By the time Steve Carell
shows up as Uncle Arthur not
another witch .or another actor
playing a witch, but a character
from the original TV show -
"Bewitched" has disintegrated
into a jaw-dropping curiosity.
By then you will be rolling your
eyes, checking your watch, and
marveling at what some people
can. do to make a living these
days.

pening with a piece of the USA Patriot Act.
Two weeks ago, the House voted to delete a section of
the Patriot Act that permits the government to review
people's library records. Despite the decisive 41-vote
margin on Capitol Hill, the regulations are likely to stick
because the White House has vowed to veto legislation
that would strip this section of the law.
Those who support the House's position say the
reviewing of library borrowing records is an unneces-
sary intrusion into a person's private life. Those who
side with the Bush administration say it gives the gov-
ernment a necessary tool in keeping an eye on those
who might be up to no good.
Who's right? It's hard to tell because neither side has
made a convincing case based on solid evidence or
expert analysis.
After the Sept. 11 attacks, Congress hastily approved
the broad hodgepodge of anti-terrorismn laws without
much debate or scrutiny. At the time, the sense of
urgency was strong, and Congress was correct to vote
first, ask questions later.
Nearly four years later, the time for review is at hand.
A thorough, smart and dispassionate evaluation of the
entire Patriot Act is necessary to spot what works, to
offer additional provisions or regulations and to identify
those measures that unnecessarily intrude on rights with-
out strengthening the nation's security.
Americans are tolerant of privacy intrusions in the
defense of the homeland. Decisions on what Patriot Act
provisions should stay or go, however, must be based on
hard facts and the best advice available.

A couple of weeks ago I was
finishing my plans to attend the
Florida Press Association con-
ference in Key West.
I was excited. It was a week-
end away with the kids. We
haven't done a lot of traveling
alone so it was kind of an
adventure for us.
I had mapped out the hotel
where we were staying, and
mapped out the directions from
that hotel to the one where the
awards banquet was scheduled.
Duhhh! I never gave it much
thought that you can't get too
terribly lost in Key West.
Anyway, we took off after
several warnings from friends
to keep a close eye on the chil-
dren. In fact, the warnings were
so strong that I seriously con-
sidered not going.
I knew the trip to Key West
was a long one. I've done a lot
of driving through the years on
trips back home to Illinois, but
this was the first time I was
going this distance as the only
driver.
Leaving late on a Friday, we
decided to drive to Fort
Lauderdale and get a room
there. I got to the area that
Briana calls "Malfunction
Junction" and got on the wrong
junction.
I immediately knew I was
headed to Miami and, more
importantly, knew I didn't want
to go there.
I got off that nightmare of a
road and called a friend who
finally got me headed in the
right direction.
I don't like getting lost

don't like big cities, and I don't

how much was there, but I'm
guessing from the way .they
described it it was a nursery
worker's pay.
Of course, we talked about
that for a long time. Daniel was
pretty proud of himself. He's
such a lucky guy when it comes
to finding money. Another time
he found a $20 bill in a parking
lot. We couldn't find the right-
ful owner so he kept it.
Then the trip home proved
just as exciting ... at least to an
8-year-old boy.
Just before we got on Big
Pine Key, a big iguana came
running onto the road. I pulled
off the side of the road to watch
it while everyone behind us just
kept driving on. I guess it's not

so unusual down there, but we
were pretty impressed.
Then at Marathon, we saw a
big cigarette boat race. Daniel
was in awe. He thought those
boats going so fast were the
coolest thing.
We made it home after a very
long, trip in a short amount of
time, but I can say it wasn't the
longest trip in a short amount of
time that I've ever made.
I was the maid of honor in
my best friend's wedding and
we left on a Thursday night
after my last college class of the
day, drove to Illinois and was
back home Sunday. That trip
was made by my mom, another
friend and myself.
Another time, my dad and I
loaded up and drove to Fort
Knox to get my brother and
bring him home so he could say
goodbye to his daughter before
she returned to Germany with
her mother. Janine had been

I say leave the game rooms
open for those who want to
play. It's clean and there was no
drinking and smoking and I
could sit there with my friends
for hours and pass the time. I

understand' why the game
rooms were closed. They had
no problem letting them pay the
permit fees to open? I liked
going there on Saturday nights.
I could play and it's clean fun. I
think if they stay closed, you
should close bingo also. That's
gambling money away.
Quit being a pain and open
up our game rooms again.
Those who don't like it, stay
out!

America headed

backwards

Editor:
I thought that price gouging
was supposed to be illegal?. So,,
how can those beloved politl-
cians that you voted for,
Democratic and Republican,
who were hand picked for you
to vote for, who rolled over and
let the big oil corporations
increase their prices, justify
their betrayal of the people?
Or how about those honest,
beloved politicians that you
voted for, Democratic and
Republican, who were bought
off and banned the sale of
Canadian drugs from being
sold in America?
And how about those
beloved politicians who voted
for North America Free Trade
Agreement and allowed our
American industrial manufac-
turers to outsource American
industrial jobs to foreign coun-
tries?
Who did your elected politi-
cians represent, you, or the big
corporations, that allowed for-
eign laborers to take away your
jobs?
So now, who did you vote
for? Some well-known politi-
cian with half a dozen degrees,
who sold out America to some
foreign manufacturers, who
was hand picked for you to
vote for?
Then you have nothing to
gripe about, when America
goes into another "Great
Depression" with our $7.6 tril-
lion national debt and when
Social Security goes broke and
the loss of millions of
American industrial jobs, I
hope that you are satisfied.
You voters, both Democratic
and Republican, who did not
have enough intelligence to
think for yourselves; you voters
who voted for the well-known
politicians, who were picked
for you to vote for by the spe-
cial interest groups; you know
who you are, you who were
"brain-washed" into voting for
the well-known crooks.
I hope that you remember
this when we lose more and
more of our freedoms and
rights.
America is headed back-
wards towards a medieval
Europe with increasing taxes.
The people will not be able to
afford to own their homes.
The rich masters will own
everything while the people
will have no rights. They will
be peasants on the land, just
like medieval Europe, or
Communist Russia.
Think about that when you
vote for another tax increase or

Sebring is

family friendly

Editor:
Family friendly.
That is my new outlook on
Sebring.
Four years ago, when I
returned to live in Sebring,
after being out and about the
country for 35 years, I was sad-
dened that the downtown
resembled a ghost town com-
pared to Nwhat I had been. used
to as a youth.
Now I see so many towns
people, leadership, businesses,
community organizations and
churches have pulled together
to provide for not only the
retirement community, but the
families with children as well.
It does a heart good to see
children singing their hearts out
on the Circle, running in and
out of the many museums,
bookshops and parks nearby.
The law enforcement has
done such a fine job of keeping
people safe, while maintaining
the attitude of southern hospi-


u'w'i


tality. Mutual respect that will
be exhibited in the children and
families.
This is more than an
acknowledgement, this is a
thank you to all who have put
their hearts and talents into
making all of Sebring user-
friendly.

'Public Use' is

now 'Purpose'
Editor:
The moment the idea is
admitted into society that prop-
erty is not as sacred as the laws
of God, and that there is no
force of law, and public justice
to protect it, anarchy and tyran-
ny commence. Property must
be secured or liberty cannot
exist John Adams
Contrary to what most of us
believe, which is that the
Supreme Court maintains the
meaning of the U.S.
Constitution. It is most surpris-
ing how the vote on the
Supreme Court came down on
what is "Public Use."
The five justices on the
Supreme Court have changed
the meaning of "Public Use" to
"Public Purpose," meaning


that: Private owner A must sell
his property to private owner B
because private owner B will
pay more in taxes. I don't think
that this is what our Founding
Fathers meant when they used
the words "Public Use."
"Public Use" is designated for
a school, a. road, a park or a
cemetery. A big office complex
or a complex of condos is not
going to get a lot of "Public
Use."
Even if you do not want to
sell your property, a land devel-
oper can petition your city, or
county officials to re-zone your
property for them to be able to
build on it. They will get an
average of the properties like
yours that have sold within say
six months and write you out a
check for the average price, this
is called fair market value. If
the city or county officials deny.
the petition there will be a law-
suit against them by the land
developer. This new law puts.
even the land owned by people
of wealth in jeopardy.
But the thing that is most
disturbing to me I guess is that
the Supreme Court is saying
that our founding fathers did
not understand what they were
doing and didn't mean the lan-
guage that they used specifical-

nice combination and my friend
sensed that when he couldn't
immediately tell me what I
needed to do to get out of there.
It's probably a good thing that
all of this happened while my
kids were with me. At least they
kept me from going into a rag-

We finally found the hotel I
was looking for and had a very
peaceful night.
The rest of the trip posed no
problem for us. In fact, it was
quite exciting.
We stopped at a little store on
Krome Avenue to get some gas.
The kids went inside to pay and
get something to snack on and
to drink. After what I thought
was too long, I started in to
make sure they were OK and
here they came just talking up a
streak.

money laying on the floor and

Changes in the traffic laws take effect today


Every year at this
time the Florida State
legislators remind us
that they have been
busy:
They do so by
advising us of leg-
islative changes in
our laws and when
they take effect. I
will be dealing with
those issues that will
affect you while you
are motoring on the
roadways of this
state.


J.P. FAN

HIGHWAY
HOTLINE
"" "" "


Much has been said over the
years concerning, the use of
seatbelts. As I have pointed out
in the past, the use of seatbelts
has not been what is called a
primary offense. That means
that an officer couldn't stop you
just because he sees that you
aren't wearing your seatbelt.
There had to be some other rea-
son for the stop.
Well,_that is changing slight-
ly, as of today. It is now a pri-
mary offense if the driver or a
passenger is under the age of 18
and not wearing their seatbelt.
The use of your turn signal
has changed for two different
statutes. One is when you go to
pass (overtake) another
motorist, you will now be
required to indicate this with
your turn signal. The second
one requires that you use a turn
signal to indicate that you are in
the process of changing lanes.
There is some extremely
good news for those of you that
aren't impressed by the accom-
plishments made in the car
stereo field.
The statute dealing with the
operation of radios or other
mechanical soundmaking
devices or instruments in vehi-
cles has reduced the distance
that you may hear, those
devices. It, has been reduced


from 100 feet to 25
feet, that is slightly
over two lanes of
S U.S. 27. -
For those motorcy-
clist enthusiasts, the
requirements for
motorcycle handle-
bars has been rede-
fined. The statute pre-
E viously read, "No
person shall operate
Y any motorcycle with
handlebars more than
15 inches in height


above that portion of the seat
occupied by the operator."
It will now read, "No person
shall operate any motorcycle
with handlebars or with hand-
grips that are higher than the
top of the shoulders of the per-
son operating the motorcycle
while properly seated upon the
motorcycle."
If you are into lowering your
vehicle you might want to
watch out for a new section that
has been added concerning train
crossings. It is now illegal to
stop on a railroad crossing or to
drive through a crossing with-
out having sufficient undercar-
riage clearance. This is going to
be a moving violation.
While you are traveling on
the major highways of the state
where the posted speed limit is
70 mph the new minimum
speed limit has been raised to
50 mph, this replaces the old
minimum limit of 40 mph.
Laser pointers have contitp-
ued to make the news since they
were invented. While they are
an extremely handy tool if you
are teaching (or just want to
point at something) they can
just as easily get you into trou-
ble out in the streets.
Under a new statute it is a
felony of the third degree if you
"willfully shine, point or focus
the beam of the laser lighting


FF;


device on an individual operat-
ing a motor vehicle, vessel or
aircraft." If you commit the
same act and someone is
injured it elevates the criminal
act to a felony of the second
degree, also effective today.
As to racing on highways, as
in one of our more recent tragic
traffic crashes. Starting Oct. 1,
violations of this type will now
be a misdemeanor of the first
degree. It will also allow for the
impounding of any vehicle used
for this activity for a period of
10 business days.
For this violation a convic-
tion means a determination of
guilty that is the result of a plea
or trial, regardless of whether
adjudication is withheld.
And to further their point
they added that any vehicle
used in violation of this section
within five years after a previ-
ous conviction may be seized
and forfeited as provided by the
Florida Contraband Forfeiture
Act.
The fine for failing to stop at
a traffic signal is increased to
$125 (the final cost for this
county is to be determined)
regardless of whether the cita-
tion is written for traffic control
device or for a traffic control
signal device.
If you obtain two convictions
for this violation within a 12-
month period ,you will be
required to attend a driver
improvement course to main-'
tain you driving privileges. If
you fail to complete the course
within 90 days your driver's
license will be suspended. This
new change has also increased
the amount of points accessed
against your driver's license
from three to four.
Some issues with driver
licenses have been updated. If
you are ordered to comply for
genetic testing (DNA) and fail

to comply, your driver's license
and vehicle registration may be
suspended as of Jan. 1, 2006. If
your license is suspended for
failure to pay child support, it
will now take $47.50 to get it
reinstated, as of today.
While you are at the driver's
license office to get your identi-
fication card remember that
regardless of any religious
beliefs you will be required to
have a full-face photograph.
One last point for those of
you who enjoy our great local
restaurants. If you purchase a
bottle of wine and do not con-
sume it on the premises you
may take it with you. Like any
government action it isn't that
easy.
. First the restaurant must
reseal the bottle; it must then be
placed in a bag or container that
can be easily seen if it has been
tampered with, as well as hav-
ing a dated receipt for the wine
and a full course meal. To trans-
port it, you must place it in a
locked glove compartment,
locked trunk or area behind the
last upright chair if not
equipped with a trunk.
And finally, if you are a
retired from the U.S. Army
Reserves you are now eligible
to apply for an Army Reserve
license plate. And if you really.
enjoyed you time in the Army
Reserve and started collecting
former Military Vehicles. Your
vehicle is now eligible for a
permanent license plate.
Realizing that it may be
extremely difficult to attach the
license plate to some military
type vehicles you can just carry
the plate, and paper work with
you.

Florida Environmental Institute wins Leadership Florida award


Special to the News-Sun
The parent organization of
Florida Environmental
Institute, a provider of services
to troubled youth, has won the
2005 Leadership Florida
Statewide Community Award.
"This award exemplifies the
types of quality programs that
we utilize to provide services to
youths in our care," said
Secretary Anthony J. Schembri
of Florida's Department of
Juvenile Justice. "We congratu-
late our partner for this award."
"The purpose of the
Statewide Community Award is


to recognize an organization or
company which has reached
across our valued differences to
develop a keen sense of com-
mon purpose and a more pro-
found sense of loyalty to
Florida," noted Wendy
Abberger, president of
Leadership Florida. "This
award has been created to pro-
mote a heightened sense of
appreciation for the possibilities
available when Floridians work
together as a single statewide
community."
Florida Environmental
Institute is The Last Chance


Ranch's statewide organization.
The Last Chance Ranch oper-
ates in Venus.
Since 1976, AMI (parent
organization of Florida
Environmental Institution) has
made a significant contribution
to Florida, bringing together
thousands of people from many
walks of life to help more than
25,000 adjudicated children
meet responsibilities, obtain
employable skills, increase self-
confidence and further their
education.
In order to affect change,

Haywood Taylor Boulevard is open


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Juan Nunez, of Center Line Road Striping in Bradenton, reaches down to light the gas heater on a
vat of tar Tuesday afternoon used to adhere raised pavement markers to asphalt. Striping is part
of the final phase of the widening of Haywood Taylor Boulevard in Sebring, which opened to
motorists at noon on Monday. 'We're trying to get it lit up for tonight,' Highlands County Traffic
Operations Supervisor Eddie Cardona said Tuesday.


brings together divergent seg-
ments of the community to
achieve a common goal, giving
direction and values to at-risk
teens. To do this, Florida
Environmental Institute has
formed a board that works
together to tap into their com-
bined strengths and resources to
help the institute.
The Florida Environmental
Institute board members and
staff mentor the kids, give them
religious direction, supervise
them for community service
activities, oversee the financial
stability of each school and
raise private funds. They work
to send FEI graduates to college
or vocational school upon serv-
ing their time, because they
don't want to see the kids fall
back into their old habits. They
work with staff to change per-
ceptions in the community that
adjudicated kids are bad and
should be locked away.
For Florida Environmental
Institute, the child isn't bad ...
they just made bad choices. 'As
a result, although the national
average for re-arrest among
juveniles is at 59 percent, only
an average of 28 percent of
AMI's kids are re-arrested,
making AMI a national, leader
for rehabilitating adjudicated
kids.
"There is a lot of new
research nationally which indi-
cates that youth who have been
in trouble can be diverted from
a life of crime if they have the
right mentors and access to the
right programs," Florida
Environmental Institute's Board
Chair The Honorable Judge
Gladstone said. "The impact of
programs like this is that it not
only puts a youth on the right
track for a productive life, it
also saves the taxpayers money


by keeping the youths from
ending up in adult prisons."
O.B. Stander, president and
chief executive officer of AMI,
accepted the award on behalf of
the 29 schools in Florida.
"We have over 350 board
members and 800 staff mem-
bers in Florida, working within
their communities for the kids
who. need it most," Stander
said. "This award is. for them
and the fact that they come
together and give so much of
themselves for kids that others
may ignore.".

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
July 1, 1995: Mike White
hadn't pitched in more than
a month, but when pressed
into duty for Avon Park's
Sedlock & Heston con-
struction, he excelled, scat-
tering six hits over six
innings for an 8-1 Strong
Team championship game
win over the Sebring Lions.
With the score already 3-0
in the fourth inning, John
Paul Heston blasted a grand
slam to left-center to blow it
open.

25 Years Ago
July 1, 1980: An ejection
forced Highlands County
Bank to forfeit its Big
League youth game against
Lake Placid's First National
Bank. Highlands was lead-
ing 6-2 after an inning and a
half when the incident
occurred, turning the game
into a 7-0 First National win.

Champs returning to


defend Bagwell titles


Brownell, Thompson
set to take on solid
. field in 3-day event
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK It's not
hard to pick the favorites for
the 36th annual Bagwell
Junior Tournament, which
opens its three-round compe-
tition at River Greens today,
since last year's winners are
both back to defend their
titles.
What is hard to predict is
which of the other golfers are
going to give boys winner
Cody Brownell and girls
champ Alexis Thompson the
biggest challenge.
"It will be a good battle on
the boys side," River Greens
pro Jason Beatty said
Thursday. "On the girls side,
there's not a lot of golfers, but
they're good players."
The Bagwell, which is the
area's longest running junior
tournament, starts with 8 a.m.
tee times from No. 1 today
and Saturday and will be
flighted prior to Sunday's


final round.
Beatty said around 60
golfers have signed up, not a
bad number considering
another big junior tournament
is also being held this week-
end at Mission Inn in Howey
in the Hills.
The girls may have the
most interesting battle, since
Thompson is all of 10 years
old and will be once again
squaring off against older
girls, like Sebring's Jocelyn
Dunn, 18, who finished a dis-
tant second (13 strokes) last
year after Thompson shot
rounds of 81-76-78.
Thompson, who is an
exception to the tourney's
normal 12-year-old age limit,
may have had more of a chal-
lenge if early leader Heather
Burgner hadn't been disquali-
fied after hitting from outside,
the teebox in the second
round.
Thompson, who is from
Coral Springs, already has an
impressive resume which
includes multiple wins at the
U.S. Kids World
See CHAMPS, Page 4E


News-Sun file
Ten-year-old Alexis Thompson, shown here during last year's
tournament, is back to defend her title against the older players
in this year's Bagwell Tournament.

Sebring American pitcher Matt Grubb sets himself to throw to first base for an out on a grounder in
front of the mound as catcher Taylor Townsend backs him up on the play during Wednesday's game
against Clewiston.

Dixie Youth Majors Baseball District 8 Tournament


Sebring American tops



Clewiston in 8th inning


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
CLEWISTON Host 'team
Clewiston was able to tie the
game at 2-2 in the top of the
sixth inning on an error, but
Sebring American hung around
and pulled out'a 3-2 victory in
eight innings with a little small
ball and a payback error in
,Wednesdayv night's \inner's
bracket game of the Dixie
Youth Majors (ages 11-12)
District 8 Tournament.
The game began on Tuesday,
but was rained out after an
inning, with Sebring clinging to
a 2-1 lead.
The loss knocked Clewiston
(2-1) into the loser's bracket to
take on Lake Placid (2-1)
Thursday, and unbeaten
Sebring Afierican (3-0) faced
their Sebring National (2-1)
cousins in Thursday's other
semifinal game. The games
were delayed by rain and were
not complete at press time.
Buddy Mays led off the bot-
tom half of the eighth inning
Wednesday with a single to
right field, advanced to second


on Aaron Hart's sacrifice bunt
and scored with the winning run
on an error at shortstop off the
bat of catcher Taylor Townsend.
Mays came dashing home on
the play to keep Sebring
American as the only unbeaten
team in the tournament.
"Awesome!" was how head
coach Bob Hoffner described
the conclusion to the excling
game. "Our goal was to just get
the guys in scoring position.
Usually that doesn't work.
We've scored five runs in two
games;. we just play good
defense. Offense brings crowds,
defense wifis championships."
Sebring American played
strong defensively and got solid
pitching out of three hurlers,
but also managed to get its four
hits when it counted most.
Clewiston started J.J.
Rodriguez, and the strong right-
hander pitched the first seven
-innings, but was much more
effective with his nasty curve-
ball on Wednesday than he was
the night before in the rain.
On Tuesday, J.T. Florah (2
for 3, two runs) was hit by a


pitch to open the game and
came around to score on a
series of passed balls and wild
pitches. to put Clewiston on top
1-0. Sebring came right back
and grabbed a 2-1 lead when
Corbin Hoffner was hit by a
pitch with two outs to set the
table. Cleanup hitter Daniel
Ware delivered a triple to center
field off of Rodriguez that just
missed being a home run when
the center fielder knocked the
ball back onto the field just
before it sailed into souvenir
land. Hoffner scored on Ware's
blast to tie the' game, and
Garrett Lewis delivered a clutch
RBI single to plate Ware for a
2-1 lead Sebring held until the
sixth inning the next day.
Leadoff hitter Florah dou-
bled down the left-field line
with-one out in the top of the
sixth. Andre Rios then ground-
ed to shortstop and Florah
broke for third when Hoffner
threw out Rios at first base.
Sebring's first baseman over-
threw Mays at' third base and

Does money make the sports world go 'round?


Daniel Bedell says that money can't buy wins


I just get so tired of you adults lec-
turing us about it. It isn't a magic
potion, you know.
When it comes to sports, you
whine about it, too. According to so
many losing coaches and teams, it is
the schools with the money that win.
The schools struggling to

lose.
Come on! Have you been
watching the Yankees; Red
Wings, Lakers and Raiders?
Money can not buy wins!
Sure, money helps. It helps
get nicer equipment, better
facilities and maybe even
better training, but heart, NEW
talent and desire make play-
ers great. Dani
I have run and played -
basketball against some
very rich schools and, sure, they had
some good players, but they had some
really bad ones, too. They were like
everyone else.
Too often, this money excuse is no
more than a crutch. We can't win and
we look for something to blame it on.
We don't want to say that more and


fel I


more kids are lazy. I don't know how
many kids I have heard complain about
P.E. classes and how they have to run a
whole mile!
Oh, please, no not a mile. That
might, dare I say, get them in some
resemblance of good shape.
If you want to point a fin-
ger, point it there. Call it
plain old laziness. Parents
want their kids to be ;star
players but don't want to tell
them turn off the TV and eat
some carrot sticks instead of
deep-fried Twinkies.
Money can never, ever
buy heart. Money can never
iHOOL buy true desire. The desire
that keeps going when
Bedell everything in your body ;
,- screams for you to stop.
Money can't buy team
chemistry. And finally, although popu-
lar opinion may say otherwise, money
can't buy talent.
How old your uniforms are does not
affect how much you practice: How
nice your field is does not dictate how

See NEW, Page 4E


.... but his father, John, says it makes a difference


D aniel, you are young and.
idealistic. Unfortunately,
like many young people,
you are also uninformed.
Money can work magic. Obviously,
it makes a huge difference in profes-
sional sports and it makes just as
much difference in high
school sports. It should not
be that way, but it is.
By the way, I have been
watching a little of the
Yankees and others. Now
maybe in your short mnemo-
ry, .the Yankees have not
won a championship. Just
so you know, they've won
26, and it all started when OLD S
they bought a left-handed
pitcher/outfielder from John
Boston named Ruth. -
Ask any coach or athletic
director about the role money plays in
sports.
Right now, high school basketball
teams are-going to camps across the
state. Some of the camps can cost as
much as $300 per player. At those
camps, their team will play as many
as 10-12 games. Go to two or three


camps and the team plays as many
games in the summer as they do in
their regular season.
Now you tell me how teams without
those resources are supposed to com-
pete against that. Maybe you have a
couple players on your team that prac-
tice every day. They may be
very good, but that team
with the big, expensive
summer program certainly
has an edge.
S"Your view might make
more sense in sports that are
more individual like cross
country and track. Those
sports do not require big
HOOL budget and heart can over-
come a lot in those sports.
edell When it comes to team
- sports, it is a different story.
Think about baseball, soft-
ball and football. Think about the time
and effort it takes to build up those
skills. Money for camps, weight-train-
ing' facilities and other equipment can
help push teams over the top.
Money does not have to be a dirty

fans come out and buy season
tickets does not control how
much you practice.
All that is up to the players
- and unfortunately these
days, also'the parents and
what they want to put into the


game.
Jordan, Mays, Montana,
these guys made their names
into legends and do you think
they did it because their little
league or high school had
more money to blow on sports
than others? Please! They
worked their butts off. They
wanted it and they were
extremely talented. Period.

Can the money buy champi-

Montana. You have a point
with Willie Mays. He came up
the hard way. Before he was
playing with the New York
Giants, he was playing in the
*Negro Leagues with the
Birmingham Barons.
But Michael Jordan and Joe
Montana just help to prove my
point. One went to North
Carolina and the other went to
Notre Dame. How much
money did those two athletic
programs have compared to
the competition?
I agree with your comments
about heart and desire, but
money is also part of that
equation. Daniel, it is easy to
scoff at money, until you need
it.


the first two innings for
Sebring, giving up one run on
one hit. Hoffner pitched the
third and fourth innings, scat-
tering one hit and striking out
two before switching positions
with Grubb at shortstop.
Rodriguez surrendered two
runs on three hits over his
seven-inning stint (legal only in
an extra inning game). Living
on his breaking ball, the stocky
right-hander struck out 10 bat-
ters and walked two. Thomas
picked up the loss, pitching the
bottom of the eighth inning.

"I look for Cody to do well
again," Beatty said. "I think
he'll be real confident because
he had two good, solid rounds
last weekend. We'll have the

then medium and then short one
day, so he'll have a good
chance to win again, I think.
