O'Connor's



retirement



comes as a



surprise
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
WASHINGTON Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman
on the Supreme Court and a swing vote on abortion as well as
other contentious issues, announced her retirement Friday.
The news caught some local attorneys by surprise.
Jim McCollum, a local attorney who has been deeply
involved in Pirsident George W. Bush's two political cam-
paigns, had high words of praise for the 75-year-old justice.
"I haven't always agreed with her but I've always-held her
in high regard," he said. "She was a leading example for
women in the law at a time when women just didn't go to law
school and proved her mettle. As a father of two daughters that
has always been important to me."
However, the retirement came as little surprise to attorney
Mike Disler, who serves as the Avon Park city attorney in addi-
tion to his private practice.
"I think that's been forthcoming for quite some time," Disler
said.
Attorney Andy Jackson noted that because of O'Connor's
history as a "swing vote," a decision on her replacement might
prove to be critical in future decisions.
"Depending on who gets the confirmation it could be very,
very important to the balance of the court," Jackson said.
"It has been a great privilege indeed to have served as a
member of the court for 24 terms," the justice wrote Bush in a
one-paragraph resignation letter. "I will leave itx ,ith enormous
respect for the integrity of the court and its role under our con-'
stitutional structure."
Little more than an hour later, Bush praised O'Connor as "a
discerning and conscientious judge and a public --servant of
complete integrity." He said he would recommend a replace-
ment who will "faithfully interpret" the laws,
All the local attorneys surveyed agreed that replacing
OConnor would be "a big job." However, none had a sugges-
tion for who they would like to see in her place.
County Attorney J. Ross Macbeth went to law school in the
District of Columbia and worked at the Justice department for
seven years.
Although he never argued a case before the high court,
Macbeth "helped frame" some issues that were argued there.
He said overall that any appointment to the Supreme Court
was an important one, but that a single appointment might not
make a significant change in the complexion of the court.
"These justices are not necessarily a bloc. It depends on the
issues they are considering," he said.
,,, O'Connor's announcement marked:the first retirement in 11
years on an aging court.

SEBRING What are the
repercussions of local and area
stormwater runoff on the coun-
ty's? That is a question that
soon could be answered with
engineering studies.
The cities of Avon Park and
Sebring both have voted to look
at the possibility of seeking
grants from the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District to help finance such an
investigation.
"The water management dis-
trict will pay for 75 percent of
the study," said Preston Colby
of Florida Public Safety, who
has handled grants for both
communities in the past.
If the studies are commis-
sioned, Colby said it would help
determine the boundaries of the
watersheds that impact various


A weekly task


lakes inside the cities limits.
Sebring currently has three
lakes within the city limits but
could add four more with the
finalization of pending annexa-
tions.
However, it is not only the
lakeside properties that affect
the water. All properties within
a given watershed may have an
effect on water quality.
"That's why it's important to
know where the watersheds
are," Colby said.
Through an interlocal agree-
ment and subsequent statutes,
the cities, would be able to
assess. properties outside the
city, for treatment of the water
they send into the city.
"The only way that can be
done is if the boundaries have
been determined," he said.
There is a standard format
approved by SWFWMD that


the selected engineering firm
would follow in making the
determinations.
Depending upon the amount
and content of the runoff, prop-
erty owners
could be
assessed a -
given amount
to help pay for -
. the treatment
of the respec- b
tive bodies of
water they COLBY
impact.
"The fees would be for con-
trolling and treating the
stormwater runoff," Colby said.
"You have to treat stormwater
runoff. You can't just dump it
into the lakes."
"There are a number of dif-
ferent ways of doing this," he
said, noting that .the results
would then help to determine


such things as rate structures,
billing and how much revenue
would be generated from the
watershed of any given lake.
One runoff question that
remains unanswered is what has
caused the oxidation problems
to the buoy chains that mark the
swimming areas' at the different
beaches on Lake Jackson.
While the chains at Veterans
Beach show virtually normal
wear, the chain links at
Crescent Beach had shrunk to
less than half their original
diameter.
Colby said such studies
would work hand in glove with
the watershed management
plan, which tells the city offi-
cials what they need, and in
turn, what it is going to cost.
"If we have science to sup-
port it, we are much better pos-
tured than if we have only


belief system's, supposition and
speculation," he said.
Although this is- new to
Highlands County, some larger
municipalities have been
imposing such impact fees for
years.
Colby also is serving as the
project manager for both the
watershed management plan
and the stormwater utility feasi-
bility study.
"We're trying to keep this
centralized so that one person
will be able to advise both gov-
ernment bodies as to what their
options are," he said.
And, said Colby, the choice
of management programs could
differ significantly between the
communities, depending upon
their needs.
"But we want them to know
what each other is doing," he
said.

Avon Park wants street



naming reim busement


-*tRRY-FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK -,The city of
Avon Park is looking' to
Highlands County commission-
ers for more than $30,000 for
the printing of street signs in the
wake of wholesale name
changes they now contend
might have been unnecessary.
"My understanding is that
there is a charge on our cellular
telephone bills that's required
by the Federal Communications
Commission to be paid to local
E-911 systems to make them
adequate. It's to cover the cost
of design, purchasing,
installing, testing and a whole
list of things which includes
in my opinion, what we did
changing our street names to
make this thing work," Avon
Park City Councilman George
Hall said.
Hall said he wanted to make
certain that if there was money
to be had for such expenditures,
the city of Avon Park would not
be left out.
"We just paid $32,000 for the
new street signs. That's just the
street renaming portion. It has
riothing to do with the hurri-
cane-related replacements," he
said.

SEBRING -, For the last
seven years, the Supervisor of
Elections Office on the second
floor of the Highlands County
Government Center has served
the county well.
Recently, it's gotten too
small.
"We need more room than
what we've got right now,' said
Supervisor of Elections Joe
Campbell on Friday.
His office is spread between
four locations: The government
center, a training center on
South Commerce. Avenue, a
warehouse which is full -
and extra storage in Avon Park.
He would like to have the
office, ballot inspection and
tabulation area, warehouse,
training center, and early voting
all in one place.
That would take about
16,000-20,000 square feet.
Campbell has actually suggest-
Se' using the old Winn-Dixie
Supermarket building on
'bakeview -Drive -i n-Sebrifng1
Early voting needs the parking.
Last year, he said, early voting
machines filled the government
center lobby, and parking is not
necessarily good there.
The elections office confer-
ence room must house the can-
vassing board, but it also holds
new electronic ballot counting


equipment and desktop com-
puters, members of the press,
elections office staff and the
duplication teams.
Last year, duplicators spent
hours duplicating ballots, espe-
cially the absentee ballots,
Campbell said.
On July 12, Campbell will go
before the county commission
to request a larger budget, cit-
ing changing elections laws, the
timing of the elections and
grants that hopefully will come
back to the county as revenue.
First, he underestimated his
budget by $14,000, since more
people came out for early vot-
ing last year than he expected.
They also requested early vot-
ing in Avon Park and Lake
Placid, so he'll need extra staff
and another $59,030 for early
voting machines.
He'll need an extra $25,607
to print ballots, since next
year's election has both a pri-
mary and a general election for
the governor, two county com-
missioners, three school board
members, two Flonda represen-
tatives and one U.S representa-
tive.
On top of that, Highlands
County must match 15 percent
of two $17,000 Elections
Education Grants, which pay to
train poll workers, educate the
public on using the equipment,
and increasing voter turnout.

Careless driving cause of three OBITUARIES


wrecks Thursday morning


By PHIL ATflNGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Florida
Highway Patrol cited a lack of
paying attention to driving in
two wrecks Thursday morning
and wet. road conditions for
another. Fortunately, no one
was seriously hurt.

County Road 621
At 7:18 a.m. Thursday, a
1988 Jeep was traveling east-
bound on County Road 621 in
Lake Placid, with a 1992 Ford
Ranger following behind it. The
driver of the Jeep Sesto
James Gavagni, 48, of Lake,
Placid had slowed down and
stopped to make a left turn
about 500 feet west of Bates
Road. Carolyn Kay Barfield,
18, of Lake Placid, driving
the Ford didn't see the Jeep
stop and ran directly into the
back of it.
Gavagni had no injuries, but
his front-seat passenger --
Marvin T. Underwood, 28, of


Lake Placid was taken to
Florida Hospital Lake Placid
and treated minor injuries, as
was Barfield.
Everyone was buckled in.
FHP cited Barfield with care-
less driving.

Wet curve
Ann Guglielmetti Krubsack,
72, of Lake Placid, lost control
of her car on a west curve and
hit a utility pole.
At 7:13 a.m., on C.R. 621,
just about 1,500 feet west of
Bates Road, Krubsack was
approaching a curve in her 2001
Saturn when, according to what
she told FHP, the vehicle started
to slide from puddles on the
roadway.
She lost control 'of the car
and slid off the north side of the
road into a utility pole. She was.
wearing a seat belt and had no
passengers in her car.
FHP reported she was trans-
ported to Florida Hospital. Lake
Placid, where she was treated


for minor injuries. FHP also
cited her for careless driving.

Holmes Avenue
Later that day at 11:50 a.m.,
in roughly the same area, a car
pulled out in front of another
one.
A 2000 Toyota, driven by
Marianne V. Reason, 66, of
Lake Placid, was southbound
on Holmes Avenue approaching
a private driveway at Danbar
Drive.
Just then, a 1995 Dodge,
driven by John R. Dressel, 56,
of Lake Placid, pulled onto
Holmes Avenue in front of the
Toyota, FHP reports said. The
Toyota hit the Dodge in the dri-
ver's side, then Reason lost
control and the vehicle over-
turned into a ditch on the west
side of the road.
Both were bucked in. Reason
was treated at Florida Hospital
Lake Placid for minor injuries.
Dressel was uninjured, but FHP
cited him for careless driving.

grew, feeding off flammable
substances and partially con-
structed trailers, and the fire-
fighters were forced to exit the
building until additional per-
sonnel arrived. Stations from
Highlands, DeSoto and Polk
counties answered the call for
mutual aid.
'The incident command sys-
tem worked exactly the way it
was supposed to," Hardee
County Emergency


Management Director Richard
Shepard said Friday.
The scene was cleared by 1
a.m. Friday, he said. However,
one unit stayed through the
night cooling hot spots.
Custom Kraft employed
approximately 70 people,
according to Ed Judy, manager
of Southeast Modular in
Wauchula.
"Theie's a possibility we
could use a few of (those peo-
ple)," Judy said, "(because) I'm
expanding my plant in a few
months. But in the mean time,
those people need a job."

Tourism Development Council director not yet named


By RACHEL PEACOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Interviews for
the director of the Highlands
County Tourism Development
Council left two top candidates
in neck-and-neck contention,
which has prolonged a decision
for who gets the title.
Carl Cool, administration
commissioner and interviewing
panel member, said he plans to
present his final recommenda-
tion at the county commission
meeting July 12.
1 A number-rating system was
used to score the four
Highlands County residents
applying for the position. Panel
members individually scored
the candidates and then com-
piled their numbers at the end
of the day.
The five-member panel was
made up of Cool, Human
Resources Director Fred
Carino, interim TDC director
Jim Brantley, TDC members
Christine Hatfield and Mark
Stewart.


"The two top applicants
were, statistically, almost tied,"
Cool said.
Because panel members
couldn't choose, they asked
Cool to reinterview the top two
candidates. After, he was given
the final choice on whom to
recommend at the county com-
missioners meeting.
"Ratings on responses were
very close," Stewart said.
'There were strong points in
every person."
About 15 people submitted
applications for the position,
but Cool said over half of them
did not meet the job's minimum
requirements. He also said the
job was advertised throughout
the state and in newspapers.
' Gloria Rybinsky, administra-
tion assistant public informa-
tion officer, said according to
Florida Sunshine Laws, the
position was required to .be
open to the public.
Stewart said the best person
for the position is an entrepre-
neur who isn't afraid of making


UlUot thmwe 5ivtit


hard decisions and can work
well with government officials.
Job functions included creat-
ing and implementing a
Tourism Development
Marketing Plan for the county
that would draw visitors to stay
in the county overnight. This
would utilize the 2 percent
tourist, or "bed tax".
The TDC is a county agency
that oversees the disbursement
of the tourist tax. During the
interviewing process, candi-
dates voiced new ideas for
using the tax revenue to attract
tourism.
"Eco-tourism was a concept
'that came up," Stewart said.
"We have what it takes to be a
destination for birders, which is


a fast-growing segment of the
tourism industry."
Originally the county's
tourism development was han-
dled by the Convention and
Visitor's Bureau. As a private
organization, the CVB lobbied
for the "bed tax." When the
county enacted the tax, it also
created the TDC.
Pat Taras was originally
hired as director of the CVB.
Later, when it dissolved she
was hired on by the county as
director of the TDC.
Taras recently resigned after
holding the position for two
years, citing personal reasons.
Jim Brantley of Polk County
has been the interim director for
four weeks.

Horse lover retrains racehorses for slower pace


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
ZOLFO SPRINGS -
Thoroughbred racehorses hit
the world running. They don't
know anything else.
They start training at a year
and a half, coming out of their
stalls to run, exercise, gear up,
or be washed, groomed and
treated by a veterinarian. Their
careers last four years at the
most.
If they get injured or lose
their speed, their lives lose their
glamour, and they can end up in
a slaughterhouse.
That bothers a racehorse
trainer from Zolfo Springs, who
retrains retired racehorses for
second careers.
"We all deserve a second
chance in life," Sonny
Maribona said. .
Maribona's love of racehors-
es is in his genes. His father,
Edie, was the lead jockey at the
Tampa Bay Downs and worked
with Sam Siciliano, head of the
jockey's room.
Like racehorses, Maribona
started training young at the
age of 7. Bythe time he was 10,
he was ponying horses by lead-
ing them for exercise while rid-
ing another horse. By 13, he
was riding them for exercise,
and by 14 he was breezing them
- running them on the track to
test speed and endurance.
"I heard so many people who
said a thoroughbred is a hard
breed to handle," Maribona


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Thoroughbred 'Wall Street' shows no fear of a noisy blue tarp while lead around the corral by Sonny Maribona, equestrian trainer and
horse lover. Maribona said his first step to retrain a racehorse is desensitizing the animal to noises and sudden movements. One way is make
a horse walk around covered with a noisy plastic tarp.


said, but he knew they just
needed respect. "It broke my
heart to see them put down for
minor injuries."
About 15 years ago,
Maribona, a certified horse-
manship instructor, began
retraining horses to "get the
racetrack mentality out of


them," he said. He also started
teaching people how to handle
thoroughbreds.
"It takes patience," he urged.
For the last five years,
Maribona and his wife, Jerilyn,
a certified equestrian appraiser,
have rehabilitated horses at
Maribona Equestrian Farm Inc.


off South Hammock Road, west
of Highlands Hammock State
Park.
Most of the horses come
from compassionate owners
and trainers through Tampa Bay
Downs. Today, the Maribonas
are retraining eight former race-
horses.


"Racehorses, all they want is
loving and attention," Maribona
said. "They will do anything for
you if you can show them they
can trust you."
Within four months,
Maribona can teach racehorses
how to be horses again.
"Racehorses d6n't know


grass is food," Maribona said.
"They think it's just to run on."
All the while, he desensitizes
them to activities that are com-
mon off the racing track. For
example, racing thoroughbreds
can be spooked by sudden nois-
es or movements. Maribona
keeps the barnyard noisy and
gets horses used to having a hat
waved in their faces or wearing
a noisy blue tarp.
As old racing injuries heal,
he develops their strengths and
skills.
Whether as a jumping com-
petition horse, work horse, trail
rider, or a pet, he finds the horse
a new life. The horse's new
owners are required to pass his
handling course, or the horse
doesn't leave the farm paid
for or not.
New homes
Ron and Stacey Torelli of
Farmington, N..Y., appreciate
the effort Maribona puts into
rehabilitating racehorses. The
couple trains and races horses at
the Fingerlakes Racetrack.
Ron Torelli said it's difficult
to find trainers who Will take
their time with the horses. He
said Maribona has done a fine
job of finding buyers for the
horses Torelli has sent him.
"We want the horses to go to
good homes, if they can be
reconditioned," Torelli said.
"They will bring some joy to
everyone."

Center hires director of nursing


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING As a nurse and
administrator, Allison
Mulholland has traveled to
many parts of the United States
and around the world providing
patient care, including a stint in
Romania to start a nursing edu-
cation program. She now plans
to plant her feet firmly in
Highlands County as the direc-
tor of nursing at Highlands
Regional Medical Center.
The administrators at the
hospital found Mulholland
from a pool of applicants and

tude.
"Allison is an outstanding
individual who has exemplary
academic credentials and brings
many years of nursing leader-
ship as well as clinical nursing
experience with her," HRMC
Chief Executive Officer Linda

concern and compassion for her
patients is well matched to the
attributes of all the nursing staff
at Highlands Regional Medical
Center. We are very fortunate to

be an asset to our hospital, as
well as our entire community."

"Nursing practice provides
us with a platform that is rich in
history and inspires us with a
vision for the future as we move
into the ,21st century,"
Mulholland said. "HRMC nurs-
es have that vision and are
poised to do what it takes to be
the best."
Mulholland is an advocate
for nurses and affiliated health-
care providers. She likes to
point out that the healthcare
providers in tight-knit commu-
nities, like Highlands County,
become part of the community
family. To Mulholland accept-
ing a position is never about
just a job, but about falling in
love with the community that
you serve.
"We are honored as health-
care providers to be present at
the beginning of life and the
end of life and all the points in
between," Mulholland said.
Mulholland plans to settle in
to the community by first
searching for a place to live
where their extended family of
more than a dozen horses will
be comfortable as well. Allison
and her husband of more than
30 years, Joe, are looking to
purchase a home in the Sebring
area. The couple has been very
involved in showing, perform-
ance, reigning and working cow
horse events.

Outdoor drama hosts Shakespeare

lesson in dramatic techniques


Special to the News-Sun
"Summertime is the time for
Shakespeare," Arcadia drama teacher John
Schudel said as he opened a South Florida
Community College summer course at the
Florida Outdoor Drama site June 29.
"And we will focus on Shakespeare," he
continued, "using his plays and dramatic
techniques to study theatre this year."
The monith-long course, conducted this
year at the Lake Placid Center of SFCC and
at the outdoor drama site, is entering its third
year of. dramatic study sponsored by the
Governor's Summer Program for Gifted and
Talented Students.
Schudel, teacher at DeSoto High School
in Arcadia, has been the instructor for each
of the three "Summer Shakes" courses.
Under the direction of Lindsay Lynch,
SFCC adult education specialist, high
school students from Highlands, DeSoto
and Hardee counties have been chosen to
participate in the dual-enrollment program
for which they receive college credit. The
2005 course began June 20 and will end July
15.
During the course students will study all
forms of stage presentation, including stage
combat, sword-fighting, projection and act-


ing methods.
"There's no better way to study various
theatre techniques than through
Shakespeare's plays," Schudel said.
Students also visit live performances
around the state. On the agenda this year are
"Aida" in Daytona, "Cats" in Tampa, the
SAK Improvisational Company in Orlando
and the Shakespearean Festival at Anna
Maria Island, which is presenting "Much
Ado About Nothing."
Featured events are being conducted by
local actress and director Tammy Pollard, an
active participant in Highlands Little
Theater activities. A Shakespearean scholar,
Pollard will conduct a session on the come-
dies written by the great playwright. Stage
combat is being taught by Laura Wade,
drama director of Charlotte High School.
The group will meet at the outdoor drama
site two days each week and will present the
final project of the group, creative stagings
for the "witches scene" in "Hamlet,"
Thursday, July 14, on the grounds of the
outdoor drama Cracker Shack.
Performances will be open to a limited audi-
ence including parents, friends and families
of the students.

Fire victim sorting out options


By PHIL ATIHNGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK On May
16, a fire destroyed Janice
Pickard's trailer in Holiday
Ranch Mobile Home Park, and
she's still trying to clean up the
mess.
According to her daughter,
Sherri Branco, 38, of Avon
Park, United Way of Central
Florida is helping them.
"They said we need a front-
end loader and a dump truck,"
Branco said, to demolish and
remove the remains of the
burned trailer.
In the meantime, Pickard, 62,
has rented another lot in the
park and is trying to buy the
mobile home on it from the
owner. She was in the process
of buying her previous trailer
when it burned down.
One hardship for Pickard
was that she had to pay rent on
the first lot through May and
June. .
Branco expressed her grati-
tude to her mother's neighbors
and to her employer Publix
Supermarket for taking up a
collection and helping them
work with United Way.
June Barnett, the director of
Information and Referral in
Polk County's United Way
office, has been trying to find a
demolition and removal con-


tractor. She had received one
bid and was waiting on a sec-
ond.
Immediately after the fire,
the local American Red Cross
Service Center helped Pickard
with food and clothing. A Polk
County United Way partner
agency helped with one
month's rent on the mobile
home lots, Barnett said.
The ashes of Pickard's hus-
band, Len, were nearly lost in
the fire. The urn was broken,
but Pickard and Branco.
retrieved most of the ashes,
along with Pickard's pocket-
book with some important doc-
uments. It was insulated inside
a bureau and didn't burn.
The fire was caused by a
faulty electrical outlet in the
bedroom where the air condi-
tioner was connected, accord-
ing to Fire Investigator Fred
Clarke with the Bureau of Fire
and Arson Investigations,
Division of the State Fire
Marshal. He said the fire was
typical of electrical systems in
30-40 year old vintage camper
trailers that had been renovated
to permanent residences.
The United Way is accepting
donations on behalf of the fam-
ily. To make contributions, call
453-3401.

Power pole clipped


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Taylor Carson, 18, talks to a friend on her Nextel while looking at
the utility pole that fell in front of her home on Lakeview Drive
in Sebring on Thursday. 'I don't know what it was, but it sound-
ed like a big truck,' she said. Pat Sedlock, who was working in
the yard next to the Carson home, said a semi snagged the cable
TV trunk line, which dragged the pole down. Chad Cotsenmoyer,
the driver of the rig, was en route to Park Place Truss for a
delivery when the mishap occurred. No citations were issued.
Several homes were without power while crews from Progress
Energy replaced the pole and trunk lines.

Travel over Orange Blossom Trail shows a big increase


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.

Travel over the Orange
Blossom Trail will be doubled
this winter A. C. Slaughter,
Orlando, president of the coop-
erative association which
advertises and promotes the
scenic highway, declared this
week as he visited Avon Park to
ask that the city double its
financial support of the organi-
zation.
Mr. Slaughter during a con-
ferehce with R. K Brown,
- newly elected president of the
chamber of commerce, pointed
out that directors of the associa-
tion had been so pleased with


their promotional .activities last
winter it has been decided to
double the program this year.
"We believe we have in the
Orange Blossom Trail one of
the nation's finest scenic high-
ways. Besides the natural beau-
ty of Florida and especially the
Ridge Section, we have four
beauty spots: Highlands
Hammock, Cypress Gardens,
Silver Springs and the Bok
Tower, that every Florida visi-
tor should see," Mr. Slaughter
said.
Last year, he continued, the
Trail Association was able to
substantially increase travel in


ana receive:

Central Florida by using 119
billboard poster in the southern
states, distributing 60,000
three-color folders and 50,000
strip maps. This year, it is
planned to increase the number
of posters, folders and maps
and begin advertising in metro-
politan newspapers.
"Avon Park and its citizens'
have always been among our
strongest supporters and we
believe you will carry forward
with us on this enlarged pro-
gram. Not only do we expect
contributions from your hotels,
filling stations and restaurants
as in the past but this year we
think that the individual mer-
chants should participate.
Everyone along the Trail bene-
fits from the increase in travel,"
Mr. Slaughter contended.
Mr. Brown'expressed his per-
sonal approval of the Trail's
directors' decision and
Thursday morning called a
number of the chamber of com-


am-7pm .

merce members in for an infor-
mal discussion of Mr.
Slaughter's request.
"I don't believe that Avon
Park with its limited advertising
funds, can make a better invest-
ment than by joining with the
score of other cities along the
Orange Blossom Trail in bring-
ing as much traffic as possible
into Central Florida and the
Ridge Section," Mr. Brown
explained.
0. C. Wilkes and J. S.
Francis also added their
endorsement of Trail activities
the former contending that an
increase in out-of-state traffic
along the highway this summer
was in part due to advertising of
the Trail last winter.
Sebring's Chamber of
Commerce on Wednesday
agreed to double its contribu-
tion t6othe Trail.

Kiwanis team up with Baptist


church to finish Coleman home


Courtesy photo
Staff and students at Academy at Youth Care Lane have been helping with the Habitat home of
DeNeather Hawthorne on Gardenia Street in Lake Placid.


Youth Academy lends a hand


Special to the News-Sun
Sebring Noon Kiwanis and
Lake Placid Baptist Church
spent a recent Saturday putting
the finishing touches on the
Coleman Family Habitat, for
Humanity home being spon-
sored by Bagwell Lumber
Company of Avon Park.
In spite of the fact that these
volunteers work full time at
other jobs in our community,
they got up early on a
Saturday and worked in the
heat and rain to help provide
shelter for a family in need.
Future homeowner Gussie
Coleman works to help other
disadvantaged clients at Ridge
Area Arc. She is a hard work-
er who wanted to provide a
decent place for her own chil-
dren.
The volunteers accom-
plished many tasks in a short
time with the help of Alan
Ball, Habitat's construction
manager. On the outside, vinyl
siding, soffit and fascia was


completed in spite of intermit-
tent rain. Finishing paint on
the inside was done by a team
of detail workers and the
house was made energy effi-
cient with the help of a crew
with caulk guns. In addition,
the floor was cleaned and pre-
pared for the tile.
One volunteer commented
that it was much more fun
building and painting on
someone else's house. And
working together in a group
makes it enjoyable.
Volunteers are what make
Habitat houses possible for the
less fortunate in the county.
Their dedication, free labor
and willingness to lend a hand
make the cost to build these
homes affordable to families
of low or very low income.
This is not a give away pro-
gram. Homeowners must pur-
chase the houses from Habitat
and the mortgage price is fig-
ured on the cost of building


material used in the house. No
interest is charged to the buyer
and the volunteer laborers
donate their valuable time.
. Homeowners also donate 400
hours labor to build other
habitat houses before theirs is
even started.
Homeownership provides a
family with security, stability
and provides our community
with first-time taxpayers who
take pride in what they have
worked for and are paying for.
Habitat for Humanity
thanks these weekend warriors
for their time and elbow
.grease. Lake Placid Baptist
Church and Sebring Noon
Kiwanis are putting their faith
into action as "Hope. Builders"
in the area.
Dedication of this and three
other houses on Memorial
Drive will begin at 10 a.m.
Saturday, Aug. 6.
To volunteer or donate con-
tact Habitat at 453-9695.


Special to the News-Sun
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity and the Academy
at Youth Care Lane have
teamed up and started construc-
tion on DeNeather Hawthorne's
new home on Gardenia Street in
Lake Placid.
There were a dozen or so
middle school and high school
students on site to lend ,their
manpower as they began put-
ting up the outside walls.
Laura Label, one teenager
busy swinging a hammer, said,
"I feel real good about what I'm
doing out here. It's nice to
know that somebody will live in
this house arid appreciate what
we did."
According to Rodney
Hollinger, student services
coordinator for The School
Board of Highlands County, the
Academy at Youth Care Lane is


operating its summer program
due to the generous sponsorship
provided by The Heartland
Workforce Investment Board
Inc.
The sole purpose of this
sponsorship is to fund programs
that benefit the youth in this
region. The response from the
teenagers has all been positive.
"The kids are really encour-
aged by the instruction they are
receiving from Alan,"
Hollinger said.
Alan Ball, who is the con-
struction manager at Habitat for
Humanity, is in turn encouraged
by the willingness of the
teenagers. He tells the group
each morning before they begin
work, "You are out here chang-
ing lives and when you com-
plete this summer program you
will know that you built a house


that changed someone's life.
That's what we do here at
Habitat for Humanity."
Also on hand was Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton to
lend her support to the program
and the involvement with
Habitat.
She was happy to see the'
teenagers hard work first hand
and encouraged them by say-
ing, "You are not only making a
difference for yourself, but
helping others be hopeful about
their future. You are part of
making Highlands County safer
just by building this home."
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity would like to
greatly express its thanks to The
Academy at Youth Care Lane,
director Darlene Dick and Judy
Beam, program assistant;, -fo6r,
this new partnership. .11

Sebring grad once worked as law clerk for O'Connor


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A former
Sebring High School graduate
had the occasion to serve with
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
for a year as a law clerk.
"I had the opportunity to
work with her during the
October '95 term," Julie
Bunting Ambrose said.
Ambrose had the opportunity
to work with the Supreme
Court's first woman justice on a


DISTRICT
Continued from 1A
Middle School and Sun 'N
Lake Elementary each have
one.
A few of the positions have
been held open despite some
waiting applicants, in the hopes
of finding higher qualified
teachers.
In June, Waldron and her
staff, aided by principals and
assistant principals, have
attended several in-state
recruiting efforts, held open
forums and sent out multiple
mailings. On May 26, more
than 30 applicants attended a
school board event here.
Another is planned for July 13.
Waldron and staff members
attended the Great Florida


daily basis. Like many who
have met the justice, Ambrose
described her as "gracious."
"She's incredibly smart, dili-
gent and thoughtful," Ambrose
said. "She is meticulously pre-
pared and takes her work very
seriously."
During her stint with
O'Connor, Ambrose worked on
a number of important cases,
including the finding that
allowed women to enroll at the
Virginia Military Institute.


Teach-In in Orlando where
2,400 prospective teachers were
in attendance. They conducted
preliminary interviews every 15
minutes. Ten possible hires
were culled from that event.
At least two new teachers
have been recruited from larger
counties, one from Miami-
Dade, and ,one from Osceola
County.
In order to apply for a teach-
ing position, an individual must
have a completed application
form on file with the depart-
ment of human resources. That
application must be current
within the last two years. Three
references are required.
Application forms can be
obtained in person at' The
School Board of Highlands
County, or online at www.high
lands.k-12.fl.us.


Ambrose moved from the
Fort Lauderdale area to Sebring
in her sophomore year, graduat-
ing in 1986.
She then went on to Rhodes
College in Memphis, and then
to law school at Vanderbilt
University, which was where
she got the opportunity to apply
for the law clerk's job in
O'Connor's office.
"I had a professor in law
school that had clerked for her
just a couple of years previous-

Several of the Boy Scouts from Troop 156 work together in a Wood Carving Merit Badge Class at the

ing that year," Ambrose said.
"She encouraged me to apply
and helped walk me through the
application process."
Ambrose had considered her-
self "a long shot," because
although Vinderbilt is a very
fine school, if was not an Ivy
League university.
She said it was "unbeliev-
able" when she got the call
telling her that she had landed
the post.
Ambrose said serving as a
law clerk for the high court was
challenging, especially because


SURPRISE
Continued from 1A
It came as a modest surprise,
particularly since Chief Justice
William Rehnquist has been the
subject of retirement rumors for
months. Rehnquist, 80 and ail-
ing with thyroid cancer, has
offered no hint as to his future
plans. ;
President Ronald Reagan
broke nearly 200 years of tradi-
tion when he tapped O'Connor
for the high court. Over time,
she evolved into a moderate
conservative, but more impor-
tantly, a majority maker.
She expressed her views
pungently at times. In a dissent
in a 5-4 ruling that let local gov-
ernments take personal proper-
ty to build malls and other busi-
nesses, she wrote that the
majority had unwisely handed
more power to the powerful.
"The specter of condemna-
tion hangs over all property,"
O'Connor wrote. "Nothing is to.
prevent the state from replacing
... any home with a shopping
mall, or any farm with a facto-
ry."
In fact, O'Connor had taken
an interest in former Florida
Representative Bert Harris Jr.'s
property rights bill and dis-
cussed it with him when Harris
and his family visited her at her
Washington D.C. office.
"She was very interested in
dad's property-rights bill,"-said-.
Bert Harris I;, town' attorney
for Lake Placid.


it was a busy term.
It involved everything from
reviewing petitions, helping the
justices prepare for cases and
then subsequently working on
the justices' opinions and even
working on speeches the jus-
tices would give for various
occasions.
"I'd say it was a demanding,
time consuming job but it was
absolutely exhilarating."
The fact that O'Connor was
the first woman on the Supreme
Court bench carried through to
her staff. Ambrose said that
over the years, O'Connor gave


The Harrises were in
Washington when Bert Harris'
III was sworn in to practice
before the Supreme Court.
The Lake Placid attorney
remembers O'Connor as being
"hospitable and kind."
"She stopped her business
and visited with the family.
That really was above and
beyond the cause of civility," he
said.

opportunities to a wide array of
minorities on her staff.
"I know she has a soft spot in
her heart for anyone who has
struggled against adversity,"
she said. "I think there was
some element of her own expe-
rience that carried through to
her hiring decisions at the
court."
Since leaving as a law clerk,'
Ambrose now works for Jones-
Day out of their Washington,
D.C. office. It is one of the
largest international law firms,
counting more than 250 of the
Fortune 500 among clients.

ination to the Senate in time for
a vote by the time the court

He said he and his administra-

makers, and said "the nation

tion debate.

Scoutt guidelines can greatly reduce the chances
of a disappearance in the wilderness.
"I've taken kids .on many long-term trips, and
we always make sure they have certain wilder-
ness skills," Roth said. "The Boy Scouts have all
kinds of safety training and guides in safety."
Bo) Scouts in Troop 156 must have completed
training in basic camping skills, compass and
map skills and orientation. Roth, an avid hiker
himself, helps teach some of the skills to the
troop. ,.
In addition, the Boy Scouts must go on two
short preparator hikes before an extended, stren-
uous trip.
Da' id Colman, Troop 156 scoutmaster, said
the troop has a strict buddy system.
"You can't go anywhere without a buddy,"
Colman said. "We insist they take a whistle and
their personal gear includes a first aid kit."
If ;a Boy Scout does get separated from his


"buddy," Colman Warns them to "stay put, we'll
find you."
In Hawkins' case, Roth said it is not customary
for Cub Scouts to go on overnight hiking trips.
"The kid (Hawkins) that got lost was a Cub
Scout," Roth said. "A kid that age normally does-
n't camp because he wouldn't have gone through
any of the normal training yet."
He also said Cub Scout activities aren't based
on the outdoors as much as Boy Scouts. The only
Cub Scout camps he authorizes are short family
trips, in which the child is accompanied by a par-
ent, or day trips.
In Sanburg's case, Colman said a swimming
requirement is not mandatory for hiking trips. To
complete the requirement a scout must swim a
total of 100 yards 75 freestyle and 25 back-
stroke. The scout also must float on his back for
one minute.
:At the Robert W. Woodruff Scott Reservation,
Troop 156 went on two high adventure trips,
which included white Water rafting and horse-
back riding. They enjoyed lots of swimming and
learned archery skills, leather works and metal
works,

Firework


magic
This week I betrayed my
dog.
I worked with Stan
Williams, a lifelong fireworks
hobbyist and member of the
Florida Pyrotechnics Art
Guild. We built an aerial shell
designed to dazzle with a
sparkling display, and plenty
of pop.
It's the pop that drives my
dog crazy. ,Come the Fourth of
July she hides in the bathtub, a
quivering, panting, neurotic
mess. Thank goodness she'll
never figure out I added to her
misery this year.
Williams is licensed by the
Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco
and Firearms. He and his shop
are inspected every year. Even
so, he can't set off his fire-
works where or whenever he
wants using fireworks
requires a special permit and
insurance.
Walking into his workshop,
which is neat and well organ-
ized, is like walking into the
laboratory of a medieval
alchemist. Containers of exoti-
cally named chemicals and
substances are carefully stored
and stacked, all neatly labeled.
Tools, some familiar, others
obscure and.otherworldly,
hang'from hooks. There is an
air of mystery about the place,
and magic as well.
The real magic is how
Williams can take ordinary
things like cardboard, wrap-

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
The Hopper family works well together. Miriam Hooper hands figures to Kacee Hooper, who's on the
phone, while Bryan Hooper faxes a quote.


Family keeps All Florida Enterprises

and H&L Construction running


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID While owner Kacee
Hopper keeps All' Florida Enterprises running,
her husband, Matt Livingood, operates H&L
Construction.
"It's a family affair, really," Hopper said.
Originally her parents, Miriam and Bryan
Hopper, owned a steel fabricating company and
Kacee was their secretary. Now they and her
brother assist her. All Florida Enterprises sells
steel buildings and Kacee's husband, Matt
Livingood, is the owner of H & L Construction,
which erects them.
"We've put up buildings for several years,
mostly repeat customers. They trust us to give
them what they need and we offer personal serv-
ice. We've put in buildings ranging in use from
commercial warehouses, ranchers' barns, to even
a small building behind a home. Construction
usually takes about three months. Of course dif-
ferent buildings are used for various applications,
but all are of top quality. We have five people
handling sales, and prices range from $6,000-
$100,000,"' Kacee Hopper said.
Livingood's been constructing steel buildings
for 13 years, but started H&L Construction in
2002.
"Prices have gone up. As of two years ago
there was a 40 percent jump in steel prices. My
family is very knowledgeable and helpful to our
business. People want someone with common
sense when you sit face to face. Of course there
are lots of steel building manufacturers on the
Internet ... if someone wants to do it himself.
This is a competitive market, but we're special-
ized as steel erectors," Kacee Hopper said.
Kacee Hopper has lived in Lake Placid all her
life and went to Lake Placid High School. She
got into this type of business by helping her par-
ents run their fabrication plant. Her business has
grown mostly from word of mouth and customers
have been impressed with the quality of the prod-
uct.
"It'g cheaper than concrete block, and is more
expandable in the future if you want to make
changes to it. And it lasts as long or longer. All of
our steel buildings meet 'or even exceed the
Florida building code," Kacee Hooper said.
"Some customers want them beefed up even
more for hurricanes. Flying debris is always a
problem, but structurally, these always do great.
Hurricane Charley got those that were 10-20

Works crews with H&L Construction put up mini
storage buildings up on Lake Josephine Road.

years old and blew them flat. But those were built
to the old codes. The ones we construct now can
withstand winds 110-146 mph. We customize
steel buildings and can do anything."
Locally, the company has got mini storage
buildings going up on Lake Josephine Road at the
present time, and it has put together the gymnasi-
um behind the First Assembly of God in Lake
Placid.
"We've worked as far away as the Bahamas,
constructing a steel building for a lobster pro-
cessing plant on Andros Island where we made a
lot of friends," Hopper said.
The offices of All Florida Enterprises and
H&L Construction are at 1198 County Road 621
East (just two miles east of U.S. 27,) in Suite 3.

sky.
But magic is how it's going
to stay.
Not that Williams kept
secrets he patiently
described every step of the
process. But it turns out the
process is complex, involving
many steps, trying to describe
them turned out to be long
winded and boring. Kind of
like talking about golf.
Making fireworks is tedious.
For obvious reasons you have
to be slow, deliberate and care-
ful. Then there are pauses in
between steps while glue dries,
or things settle. In actual
hands-on time, it might take 20
minutes to put a shell together,
but take two or three days to
complete.
I used a tool that looks like a
rolling pin with only one han-
dle. It's used to make the
heavy paper cylinder which
forms the body of the shell by
rolling the paper on it, then
taping it. You have to be exact
and line the edges up precisely.
In a later step, another layer of
glue soaked paper is applied
over that.
I helped finish off the top,
by threading a fuse through a
circular piece of 1/8 inch card-
board with a hole punched in
the middle and inserting it into
the paper cylinder.
It sits down an inch or so,
and the excess paper is cut into
strips, folded and glued down
onto the cardboard top. Then a
second circular piece is thread-
ed onto the fuse and glued to
hold it in place.
The shell then had to dry.
Here's what I learned while
waiting.
The shell is filled with black
powder and stars. The powder
provides the detonation which
bursts the stars, producing.the
dazzling light displays.
Stars look like small marsh-
mallows which have burned to
a crisp in a fire without melt-
ing. They're hard as rocks, and
made of compressed black
powder and metal dust. The
heat from the powder sets the
metal dust burning (we're talk-
ing hundreds of degrees of heat
here, depending on the metal).
So actually what you see in the
sky is glowing metal. Titanium
bums white, copper blue,
strontium red there are
dozens of possibilities.
Black powder, the staple in
fireworks manufacturing, is
relatively mild. It bums quick-
ly in the open, but doesn't det-


A finished firework. The fuse sticks out of the top will be unfolded
before being being lit. The darker main body holds black powder
and 'stars' (small brickettes of black powder and metal dust, which
produce the sparkling displays). The smaller, lighter colored portion
underneath holds the powder. which will lift the shell into the air.


onate. The key is confinement.
For example, Williams
poured a tablespoon of black
powder onto an outdoor metal
stand and set a propane torch
to it. There was a poof sound
and a puff of smoke, but no
explosion. In other words, the
powder just burned.
Take that black powder,
however, pack it into an
enclosed shell so it's confined,
add a fuse to detonate it, and
the powder gains an explosive
wallop. Sprinkle stars in with
the powder, and when it.
explodes they do, flinging the
glowing metal into parabolas
and arcs.
I learned that the men and

the shrapnel can travel through

body parts you'll wish they


are a breed apart, addicted to
their craft.
"Watch it,".Williams said
after he'd demonstrated the
black powder, and the pleas-
antly acrid smell of burnt pow-
der hung in the air. "Once you
smell the smoke you'll never
be free."
I know 6ne dog who dis-
agrees.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Stand firm,

don't fall
If you don't stand for
something, you'll fall for
anything.
That saying is not unfamil-
iar; yet, many fall for the
"anything" of situational
ethics. These loosely formed
"values" invite a person to
decide what is right or wrong
according to their own opin-
ions.
However, without moral
absolutes, the foundation is a
crumbling and shifting mass
causing confusion and mis-
trust. Arising from that shaky
foundation are the myths
people believe about our
national history.
On a recent-trip north, we
took the by-pass around
Washington, DC. Though I'd
been there before, I wished
we could have visited again.
Instead, like an eager child, I
searched the horizon for a
glimpse of that special city.
When the Washington
Monument and the Capitol
building came into view in
the distance, my breath
caught in my throat.
Thinking of what this great
city represents, I realized a
tour of it is a must a history
lesson we shouldn't neglect.
Displayed everywhere is the
evidence of our faith in God.
It will dispel the myths and
reconfirm the truth. It takes
only the heart of a child to
see the truth.
When our nation was only
a dream in the minds of our
forefathers, they counted the
cost of freedom and willingly
committed to paying for it.
They staked all their worldly
goods and their honor to
make it a reality. They
declared their independence
from an earthly power while
standing firm in their
dependence upon God.
Placing their feet squarely
upon the Rock, they made
decisions based upon convic-
tions that arose from the
moral absolutes they
embraced in the Bible.
As Patrick Henry, Patriot
and Founding Father of our
country, is credited with say-
ing:
"It cannot be emphasized
too strongly or too often that
this great nation was founded
not by religionists, but by
Christians; not on religions,
but on the Gospel of Jesus
Christ."
Listen to still another
voice, that of James
Madison, fourth President of
the United States,
"We have staked the whole
of all 6ur political institutions
upon the capacity of mankind
for self-government, upon the
capacity of each and all of us
to govern ourselves, to con-
trol ourselves, to sustain our-
selves according to the Ten
Commandments of God."
With these moral absolutes
as our very fiber and founda-
tion, God has blessed
America. But, the fallout
from ignoring these princi-
ples cannot be ignored. God's
Word warns us not to be
tempted into the sinful
actions that often accompany
rationalizing away moral
absolutes.
S "Therefore let him who
thinks he stands take heed
lest he fall." (I Corinthians
10: 12, NKJV)
Amidst our Fourth of July
celebrations, let's reclaim our
national heritage with a pas-
sion; not just patriotism for
the sake of flag-waving, but
for the deeper meanings that
accompany our patriotic
symbols.
Stand firm and you won't
fall. Selah.

Memorials mark history
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
WASHINGTON D.C.
W hen America declared its independence from Great
Britain on July 4, 1776, it took more than a piece of
parchment to turn that declaration into a reality.
Over the decades, it has taken the service and sacrifice of gen-
erations of American men and women. The price of independ-
ence, the price of freedom, has been the blood of those
Americans.
And we need to remember that price. And nowhere in this
country except Washington D.C. can you find such vivid
reminders of that price.
And as the Fourth of July approaches, this seems like a fitting
time to share with you some of the images of those reminders.
You may be aware of many of the war-related memorials
throughout Washington. You may not know of a new exhibit at
the National Museum of American History. Aptly titled, "The
Price of Freedom Americans at War," the exhibit is made up of
four related displays thattell the-stories of the War of
Independence, the Ci il War, World War II and Vietnam. As a
brochure points out, "This exhibition examines how wars have -
shaped the nation's history arid transformed American society." '
The latest of the Washington war memorials is the World War
II Memorial, which opened in April 2004. Among other impres-

'Florida oasis'

remains 'an

unintentional secret'

By LARRY LEVEY'
News-Sun correspondent
WASHINGTON D.C. Anyone traveling to
this nation's Capitol can find a touch of Florida
sunshine in the Florida House.
It's also known as Florida's Embassy. And
anyone from Florida can stop in to rest, have a
glass of Florida orange juice, get information and
directions. People also can have a meeting or a
reception.
According to Sarah Schwimmer, Florida
House coordinator, 10,000-plus folks visit the
site each year.
Many visitors are Florida school children,
eager to meet their senators and representatives.
Vacationing families also stop in for restaurant
and lodging information or to ask for help in
touring some of Washington's attractions. And
many Florida business persons, state legislators,
Washington dignitaries also meet at Florida
House for a variety of events. "We usually put on

one or two events a week," Schwimmer said.
The Victorian-style house was built in 1891
for $3,000. Qver the years, it has had a number of
owners; but by 1972 the house had fallen on hard
times. The second floor had caved in and the
homeless were living in the basement.

Florida House becomes a 'safe house'


The Korea War Veterans Me orial features these troops on patrol.
The memorial honors the 22 intions that supported the war effort.


By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
WASHINGTON D.C. -
Listen in as Sarah Schwimmer,
coordinator of Florida House,
tells what happened on Sept.
11, 2001, after the plane
crashed into the Pentagon. She
was not working there at the
time but other staff members
have shared their stories with
her.


"Washington was shut down.
You could not get in to or out of
the city. All buildings around
Florida House were shut down
- so there were a lot of people
with no place to go.
"But Florida House
remained open, and it became a
'safe house' for Senator Bob
Graham and Senator Bill
Nelson and their staffs. Both
senators were having staff


meetings when the plane hit.
"Many other people came
inside that day. It was open to
anybody. CNN asked to be able
to film from the roof.
"You could see the smoke
rising, from the Pentagon in
back of the Capitol.
"But no one had to stay over
as the Metro System opened up
in the afternoon."


Male chauvinism transformed into gallantry


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?.
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

By JAN MEROP
- News-Sun correspondent
Don believed that men and women
were designed to fulfill certain roles. He
was on target; but, unfortunately, he
could carry it a bit too far.
He tended to box himself in with tra-
dition and ingrained traits from his
Italian/American heritage. New ideas
brought about by change threatened him.
Don's mother had always been at
home and his father was the provider. He
determined to emulate these admirable
traits in his own-marriage.
Ann enjoyed keeping a home and did-
n't mind acquiescing to his ways -
though it had crossed her mind to work
until children came along. But, Don
wouldn't hear of it. She'd stay home.
He'd put food on the table.


Along the way, he
began adopting some
male chauvinist atti-
tudes. Certain jobs
were Ann's,- never for
Don to get his hands
into. And other chores
remained his alone.
Children came a
few years later and the
routine was set: Wife,
mom and children


UIb


with their responsibili-
ties; dad with his.
This arrangement worked amicably
for their family. The imbalance in Don's
thinking would show up some time later.
. Ann's full-time homemaker status
continued for 18 years. Then an unex-
pected move and the need for her to
work full-time ushered in unwelcome
changes.
Don still didn't want her to work, but
he knew it had become necessary.
Unconsciously, he expected the routine
at home to remain the same.
Ann put in a full day at the office, pre-
pared dinner and then threw in some
laundry. Another night, she tried to catch
up on other chores. Saturday she contin-
ued cleaning until it was done. She want-
ed desperately to keep her home the way
she always had. Then she'd crawl into
bed exhausted.
But it wasn't long until she realized
she couldn't keep this up.
Short-tempered by exhaustion, she'd


snap at the kids and
Don. At last, she con-
fessed her need for
help looking to Don
for understanding. It
didn't come as quickly
as it should have.
"You're so
ingrained in your
ways," she com-
plained, "that you
can't see how much
you're expecting of


me."
"But, I'm tired', too, after a long day.
Then you want me to do women's
work?"
Fortunately, even though tempers
flared a bit, quiet descended and Don felt
convicted. He began to see their home as
the place they all came back to.
If his wife was going to contribute to
the financial well-being of their house-
hold, then she couldn't be expected to
handle all the duties of the house alone.
He saw how sharing home responsibili-
ties was a way to protect, care for and
rescue his wife. Balance returned.
He became her knight in shining
armor (which he polished himself, by the
way). He led the charge in gathering the
children and laying out their responsibil-
ities Together they decided which
chor" Don could best accomplish for
her.
Now (though he' teasingly complains
about his "chores"), he takes one night in


ani-up time
'Be careful that traditional patterns
,.,ahd beliefs don't blind you to truth
and grace. Change will come. Handle
frgile moments with prayer.
Sit-up and take notice
-'Hs 'your spouse's temperament
.hanged? Is she less affectionate
,because she can't bear one more
.detmnd upon her? Know her, protect
her-prove your love.

Curl-up together
Bask'in the energy left for one
other because the load of responsi-
ability is being shared both inside and
outside the home for both spouses.

Soul fitness
"Husbands ought to love their
..wives as their own bodies. He who
Sloves his wife loves himself- no one
-*ever bhited his own body, but he feeds
and cares for it, just as Christ does
the church and the wife must
respect her husband." (Ephesians 5:
29 & 33b, NIV)

the week and faithfully does his part.
His male. chauvinism has turned to
gallantry not weakening his masculin-
ity, but enhancing the protector and
defender in him. That's an attractive
combination.

An encouraging word brightens the day


As the soloist
sang "You Raise Me
Up" by Josh Groban,
I could almost feel
the excitement of the
crowd around me.
It was another
joyous celebration of
the completion of
work required for a
nursing degree from

Community College,
and well-wishers
were there from all

parts of the country.
Graduation, whether from
kindergarten, high school, col-
lege, or trade school, is a huge
step in a person's life.
We attended our first grand-
child's high school graduation
and open house. During our
stay, we went to a number of
her classmate's open houses
and quickly realized that every-
one appreciates those words of
encouragement that kept the
students in class and on track
for the duration.
Having spent hours in the
kitchen preparing food for our
graduate's open house, I appre-


ciated the work that
-, went into the celebra-
tions we enjoyed
around the town.
Cleaning and decorat-
ing the garages, mak-
ing a 60-mile round
trip to get balloons
and paper products,
putting together photo
LINES albums and videos,
cooking the food, say-
:nkn ing "great job" and
! "thank you," just did-
n't seem enough. All
the families, including in-laws
and out-laws, basked in the out-
pouring of encouragement and
love from their community.
Perhaps it's been a long time
since someone congratulated
you or spoke admiringly of
something you've done. Just
this morning, one of my neigh-
bors saw me cutting roses and
stopped to tell me how much
she enjoyed our yard. I caught
myself smiling all the way to
work.
You can't help but smile if
you read Eric Carle's "The Very
Clumsy Click Beetle" to your
children or grandchildren. What


a difference encouragement can
make in the life of a youngster.
If you have a teenager in
your family, take a look at
"Taste-Berries for Teens:
Inspirational Short Stories and
Encouragement on Life, Love,
Friendship, and Tough Issues."
Read for yourself "The Magic
of Encouragement: Nurturing
Your Child's Self-Esteem" or
"The New Strong-Willed Child:
Birth Through Adolescence" by
Dr. James Dobson.
You'll enjoy Dobson's wis-
dom, and his books could
change the course of your fami-
ly life: "38 Values to Live By,"
"Emotions, Can You Trust
Them?," "The Journey Home:

good as the original movies, but
"Body Heat" proves to be the
exception. This 1981 rendition'
of Billy Wilder's "Double

tale of a ne'er-do-well attorney
who catches the eye of a stun-
ning woman. Fascinated with
her, he agrees to help her kill
her rich husband so they can
enjoy a life of ease and steamy
sex, but things don't work out
exactly has he has planned.
William Hurt and Kathleen
Turner reprise the roles made
famous by Fred MacMurray
and Barbara Stanwyck. "Body
Heat" was Lawrence Kasdan's
directorial debut. Running
time: 1 hour, 53 minutes. Rated:

Romans 12:1-2, "I beseech you
therefore, brethren, by the
-: ... mercies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice,

wi which is your reasonab..,
service. Ad be not conformed

your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable and perfect, will of God."

In the above scripture, here's a message from Paul,
that believers present their bodies a living sacrifice,
meaning they should use their bodies to serve and
obey God. Acceptable unto God, meaning He is
well pleased with us. How are we presenting our
bodies to Himn? Is He 'W11 pleased? The word

Ten years or so ago, I noticed that my hearing was slipping so I decided to give
hearing aids a try and bought myself two one for each ear. They helped me
to hear things I was missing. Trouble was I heard everything. Sometimes when:
we went dancing, crowds or music seemed so loud, I had trouble hearing my
wife's voice. She had to shout at me so I could understand her. I started to turn
my hearing aids off in crowded situations.


Then I heard about new hearing aids that could quiet background noise, and
let me hear the person I'm talking to. I called my hearing specialist and asked--
him about this. He said Starkey Laboratories has this new technology called POit

Squirrels keep busy during the day 4i : I p fd d


They're so good at
escaping predators
that they don't
have to slink
around at night

Second in a series
Last week we began a discus-
sion of squirrels and the prob-
lems they cause for home own-
ers and gardeners.
Except for flying squirrels,
all members of the squirrel fam-
ily are diurnal that means,
they're active during the day..
This is rare among wild mam-
mals. And it's fortunate for
backyard naturalists because it
makes squirrels easy to watch.
You have to wonder: Why
are squirrels active during the
day, when most other mammals
are nocturnal? A good guess
would be that squirrels are so
good at escaping predators that
they don't have to slink around
at night.
Although they live in trees,
squirrels come to the ground to
bury and retrieve food. In the
fall, you can often see them dig-
ging small holes, called cashes,
into which they deposit food,
especially nuts and acornm.
Throughout the winter, when
food is scarce, squirrels will
return to the ground and dig up


their treasures. Since
many of their nuts
and acorns are never
retrieved, they sprout
into trees in the
spring. Thus, squir-
rels provide one
important benefit to
the ecosystem: They
are nature's tree
planters.
On the downside,
though,,squirrels can
be troublesome to
homeowners. Of the
myriad of problems
they can cause, most
fall into these three

categories:
Chewing
Squirrels will chew on many
things, even if they are not edi-
bile. It can be impossible or
impractical to eliminate the
source of their chewing.
For example, if squirrels are
attacking your potted plants,
you may be able to move the
plant beyond their reach. If they
are gnawing on pipe or tubing,
it may be possible to make the
pipes less appealing to squirrels
by covering them with a soft
material.
Squirrels will chew exten-
sively on landscape plants. This
problem can be difficult to
solve, because short of
replacing the plant with another


species there are
few ways to make it
less attractive to
squirrels.
4 Female wax myr-
tles, for example,
attract squirrels in
late fall when their
branches are full of
fruit. Squirrels may
gnaw off the branch-
es and then eat the
fruit. This does not
really hurt the shrub,
3 but it ruins its appear-
ter ance for several
3 months.


Next week we will


talk more about the problems
squirrels cause and some tech-

Sunny Serafino's 'Secrets' is ready for readers


Fifth novel in five years for author

By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING
The word is out: Sunny Serafino has a new novel -
"Secrets."
It's the fifth novel in five years for a former resident
of the Villages of Highlands Ridge, who still
returns to this area from time to time for book signing and
writing seminars. It reflects a passion for writing that she
found the time to flame after her children were raised and
she retired in 1994.
"I wanted to be a writer all my life, I just never had the
time to do it," Serafino said from her home in Stuart.
For a time, Serafino wrote newspaper columns as a way
of boosting her confidence and practicing her writing skills.
She enjoyed success in that venue; still, fiction called.
"I really wanted to write fiction," Serafino said. "I love to
read fiction, and I love to write fiction."
Mystery and intrigue runs through her plots. Her heroines
are independent women facing a challenge and on the way
to discovering unexpected romance.
Her new book, "Secrets," fits that mold. The main char-
acter, Eve Marshall, is a Washington, D.C., business woman
who inherits a large sum of money upon her mother's sud-
den death. Since her mother was not a woman of wealth,
Eve is driven to find out where the money came from a
journey that leads her to find out that her mother had a secret
life she knew nothing about.
"I write about courageous women and family situations
because I believe they are two compelling and ever-current
subjects of interest," Serafino said. "Each book is a separate
and complete novel, and all include a delicate love story,
although I don't write anything explicit."
With "Secrets" Serafino experimented with writing in the
present tense, instead of the past. It worked out well for her.
"I read a book written the same way, and I enjoyed it,"
Serafino said. "I thought it was something I could work
with. It seems to have done well, because it's getting really
good reviews."
Now Serafino is putting the finishing touches on a sixth
novel "Beyond Innocence." She is also working out the
details of a seventh book, which will be something she has
never done before a sequel.


"Second Chance" \ill finish the stlor olf to popular
characters, George and Pait. that ,i s begun in "Echoe."
a novel that won the 2004 Ro.al Palm Lnertr\
Award for the state of Florida Readers urged
her to tell them how their I ies w\ere going
to turn out, Serafino said
"I'm not a big fan of01
sequels, but sometimes if
there's something
left to expand on, I
think that's a good
idea," Serafino said. ,,
A noted speaker.
Serafino frequently\ "
addresses Florida ., ,
women's groups on the
topics she writes about.
such as dysfunctional fami-
lies, domestic violence, fami-
ly history and even writing a. a
career. She has been a guest
speaker at South Florida
Community College',
Lifetime LearnerN, '--
Institute.
"I always encourage
writers to seek out other
writers. I think you get
a lot of other feedback
and help," Serafino
said.
That practice proved "
helpful to her in the
beginningof her career.
and today she still
belongs to numerous'
writing groups.
" "I attempt to give
back to the art that has captured my heart," Serafino said.

Copies of "Secrets" and all of Serafino's novels are avail-
able through the Web site: http://www.authorsden.com/sun-
riyserafino. She can be reached by e-mail through the Wt 1
site or by writing to her 1225 N.W. 21st Street, Suite 1711.

includes a wall with 4,000 gold
stars, representing the more
than 400,000 Americans killed
during the war.
The Vietnam Memorial is
noted for its wall listing the
more than 58,000 Americans
who died in that war. It's the
most visited memorial in
Washington. Visitors often
leave such items as photos,
flowers and medals. One story
has it that the friends of one of
those killed in Vietnam banded
together and left a motorcycle
at the base of the memorial,
under the name of their friend.
A second sculpture pays trib-
ute to the 265,000 American
women who served during
Vietnam.
The Marine Corps Memorial

of the flag-raising on Mount

Chiles, had a vision of a Florida
Embassy in Washington so
with her own money and dona-
tions from some of her Florida
friends, she purchased the prop-
erty for $120,000. In 1973, after
an extreme make-over, the
house became Florida House -
a home-away-from-home for
visiting Floridians.
Florida House is non-parti-
.san and is supported solely .by
private contributions. It is not
funded by the taxpayers. As
Schwimmer said, "We've exist-
ed for 30-plus years without tax
dollars."


Florida is the only state that
can boast such an "embassy.",
But, as, one writer states,
Florida House remains "an
unintentional secret" to many
Floridians.
The address is 1 Second St.
NE, just east of the Capitol and
directly behind the Supreme
Court. Look out one window on
the first floor and there, through
the trees,'is the Capitol dome,
with a drawing of the window
and that view serving as the
logo of Florida House.
For more information, call
Florida House at (202) 546-

Police issue DUIs in some strange places


Since I don't drink alcohol,
one cannot blame my occasion-
al weaving on the road to a DUI
(driving under the influence).
No, those few times (very
few times, Mr. Police Officer)
that such a thing has occurred I
have been trying to grab some-
thing, often my cell phone,
which decides to adhere itself to
my purse strap when it's ringing
lest I actually get to talk to
someone before my voicemail
kicks in.
When we think of DUI, we
tend to equate it with those on
the highways and byways. We
think of people behind the
wheels of cars. However, we
are going off the road and deal-
ing with DUI's in places you
wouldn't expect, such as, for
example, an ice skating rink.
Now, my experience with ice
skating consists mainly of
watching all three "Mighty
Ducks" movies. Yes, I admit
when I was young and foolish
and living up north I actually
laced up a pair of ice skates a
couple of times and tried my
luck. What I learned in those
times is that ice is a very hard


and cold surface to fall
on. I also learned I have
no sense of balance,
especially when being
asked to balance myself
on two thin blades.


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


But I never worried about a
drunk driver on the ice skating
rink. The same cannot be said in
Newark, N.J., where police
arrested a man for being drunk
while driving a Zamboni
machine on the ice.
For those of you like me who
don't use the word "Zamboni"
in everyday conversation, this
refers to a machine that
"grooms" the ice I guess it
smoothes it out, untangles it,
picks nits out of it, stuff like
that. It weighs in at-four tons.
Well, apparently an employ-
ee at the sports arena called
police to report the driver of the
Zamboni was speeding and
nearly crashing into the boards.
When the cops arrived, they
tested the driver and found that
his blood alcohol level was at
0.12 percent, high enough to be
considered legally drunk.
The man has lost his
Zamboni driving privileges.


They don't mess/
around with drunk
Zamboni drivers in
Newark.
Now, lest you feel
safe here in


Highlands County, where nary
a Zamboni machine is to be
found, let's move on to another
place to watch out for drunken
drivers: 'the grocery store.
Grocery stores are already
not the calmest places to be in.
You have to deal with defective
shopping carts, people who
manage to park their shopping
carts in just the exact spot in the
aisle to keep you from passing
them, not to mention the people
who cannot count and manhan-
dle their cart into the "10 item
or less" checkout line. But now,
there is the specter of the drunk-
en driver to contend with.
In this case, the drunken
driver was operating an electric
powered shopping cart. You
have seen these parked in front
of the grocery store they are
for people who for one reason
or another have difficulty walk-
ing around in the store but they-


still want to shop.
I actually got to drive one a
couple of times while recover-
ing from injuring my foot in a
car accident. They are kind of
fun to ride, once you get the
controls figured out.
Apparently the 27-year-old
who got into one of these decid-
ed to make his own kind of fun.
Police in Devil's Lake, N.D.,
were called after someone
noticed the gentleman was run-
ning his cart into people, appar-
ently on purpose.
No one was hurt, and there
will be a hearing on July 19 on -
the man's disorderly conduct
charge.
I want to say for the record I
don't remember running into
anyone while I was operating
an electric shopping cart. And if
I did, it wasn't on purpose: I
was probably trying to answer
my cell phone.

Confusion in 4

DNA thoughts U


Editor:
Bill Dailey's letter of June
22 makes it clear that he should
look up spontaneous generation
in an encyclopedia before com-
menting on evolution. Dailey
apparently thinks that Charles
Darwin believes that frogs and
mosquitoes grew in puddles
without ancestors. Actually, an-
experiment by Francesco Redi
cast serious doubt on sponta-
neous generation as early as
1668. Charles Darwin officially
proposed his theory of evolu-
tion in 1858.
Dailey says that DNA estab-
lishes human beings to be
unique. Apparently he is,
unaware that chimpanzee DNA
shows about 98 percent corre-
lation to human DNA, a
remarkable degree of similari-
ty. ,
Similar confusion is dis-
played on the subject of dating,
fossils. Dailey seems to believe
that fossil beings either are or
should be dated by how far
from the surface they are
found. In reality, long buried
dinosaur bones are sometimes
washed into rivers and streams
by erosion. Science has far
more sophisticated means of
dating bones.'
A human skull was found in
a cave in Petralona, Greece, in
1960. Using brown calcite that
encrusted the fossil, G.J.
Hennig of the University of
West Cologne dated the skull
using electron spin resonance.
The age of the skull came out to
200,000 years, about 30 times
the age creationists claim for
the age ofthe earth. As far as I
know, no creationist has ever
heard of electron spin reso-
nance, let alone has 'an answer
for it.
Dailey says that there is no
example of "species to species
change." This common cre-
ationist claim is false. I have
mailed him some information
giving numerous examples of
new species coming about
through natural processes or by
experiment. Many of these are
plants and flies, but they are
new species.

Staff should

grow slowly
Editor:
I didn't make it to the last
city council meeting, but I did
catch some of it on TV and I
wanted to make a few com-
ments.
I think it's great that we
think of new positions, but as
we 'always talk about growth
management, let's ensure that
we increase city staff as the city
limits grow.
I do know we annexed some
property lately, but it hasn't
been that much, plus some of
the property won't be devel-
oped for a couple of years, so
the increase in property taxes
and services will be minimal
for a couple of years. I like a lot
of what I heard the other night,


" "Copyrighted Material A


f

I
> ^ *


but as the city balances the
budget (which could include
adding personnel) it needs to be
balanced with no property
taxes increase.
I don't think the mill rate
needs to go down, but it
shouldn't go up unless we see
an emergency situation. '
I congratulate Sarah Adelt
for her educational accomplish-
ments and it might be a' good
idea to have an assistant city
manager, but the city isn't real-
ly big enough for an assistant
city manager.
But, having said that, if we
have an assistant city manager
position, this position should
take over responsibilities of the
project manager, or have the
project manager work part
time. The assistant city manag-
er would move into the project
manager's office.
It's obvious that if Sarah
becomes the assistant city man-
ager, then the city manager is
going to hire another secretary,
or a move internal will happen,
but the bottom line is a new
position will occur.
The city definitely needs a
full-time building official.
Besides taking care of permit-
ting, this person is critical to
proper code enforcement. I still
don't see any need for addition-
al clerical support' for code
enforcement. The present fire
chief's secretary .should handle
this.
I've always said if code
enforcement is part of the fire.
department then the secretary
there should handle the clerical
tasks. With the size of our fire
department, I can't believe the
secretary's work load is that
heavy?
I heard the city planner posi-
tion mentioned again during
the council meeting. Based on
our city's present size, I don't
think the city needs this posi-


tion yet, especially if ypu end
up with a full-time city manag-
er and assistant city manager.
Technical help can be out-
sourced to consultants as
required.
People probably think my
comments aren't worth much,
but I think it's important that
the city stay within the budget
and only raise taxes if we have
emergency situations.

Avon Park

4th must always

have fireworks
Editor:
Good afternoon. The fire-
works display will, begin at
9:15 p.m. over Donaldson Park.
Prior to the show, there will be
hamburgers, hot dogs, cold
drinks, pizza, popcorn, and
snowcones for sale. Main
Street will be closed to traffic at
7 p.m. to allow ample area to
bring lawn chairs and find a
good seat.
All these events occur, as
usual, on the 4th of July.
Remember, a 4th of July
without fireworks is like a.
birthday cake without candles.

State meeting

was wonderful

Editor:
On June 16 the members of
Veterans of Foreign Wars and
Ladies Auxiliary left for the
75th State Convention that we
held at the Hyatt in
Jacksonville for the next four
days, which consisted of meet-
ings and of course a patriotic
parade that was led by the dis-
trict commanders and district
presidents for the rally.


Seeing that this is the 75th
anniversary of the VFW -
Diamond Jubilee, which hap-
pens- to be the world's greatest
combat veterans organization,
and Florida being the seventh

Some history of
the Fourth
Editor:
Summertime is here with the
smell of the barbecue, holiday
crowds at events, family pic-
nics and gathering of friends. It
is America's annual birthday
party and everyone is invited.
School children in America
learn the basic history of the
events of the 4th of July but the
details of monumental occasion
in American history, somehow,
has fallen through the cracks.
The actual series of events
for this celebration took longer
than one single day. The origi-
nal resolution was introduced
by Richard Henry Lee of
Virginia on June 7, 1776, and
called for the Continental
Congress to declare the United
States free from British rule.
Three days later a committee
headed by Thomas Jefferson
was appointed to prepare an
appropriate writing for this
occasion.
The document that we know
now as the Declaration of
Independence.was adopted by
Congress on July 4. The docu-
ment was finally signed by all
in 1781.
Nevertheless, July 4 was the
day singled out to mark the
event of the United States
establishing itself as a nation.
The feeling about the sancti-
ty of America's Independence
day was best expressed by a
quotation from the Virginia
Gazette on July 18, 1977.
"Thus may the 4th of July, that
glorious and ever memorable
day, be celebrated through
America by the sons of free-
dom from age to age till time
shall be no more."


Many common traditions
today have their roots in the
celebration of the early years.
Today we celebrate a huge
birthday bash complete with'
fireworks,- parades, music and
the firing of cannons. It is a fun
and inspiring way to get into a
patriotic mood.
During the month of July,
independent holidays are cele-
brated in America and France
and the Bahamas with lively
parades and music. In recent
years, a great celebration is
done in the states that border
Canada. Example: Detroit and
Windsor, Ontario, Canada
overlooking the Detroit River.
What a wonderful display of
fireworks and celebrating
atmosphere that is displayed
there.
Who is Uncle Sam? A cultur-
al icon of the early republic.
While no one actually is sure
of his origin, Uncle Sam has
been with us since the early
1800s. He actually had two
beginnings. The name "Uncle
Sam" appears to belong to a
man (Sam Wilson) who slaugh-
tered meat for the United States
Army., His shipping crates car-
ried the stamp "U.S." which
someone jokingly said stood
for Uncle Sam and this nick-
name came to symbolize the
federal government.
While Sam Wilson was not
the inspiration for the image, as
he was a clean shaven man, a
cartoonist started drawing him
with a beard and he started
drawing the star spangled red-
white-and-blue suited symbol
of American identity.
No matter what Uncle Sam's
roots may be, he has become a
symbol recognized throughout
the world of American strength

So we say thanks to our fore-
fathers and foremother for the
freedom to vote, gripe, live,
complain, elect, party, choose,
march, pray, speak and worship
as we please. Our beautiful
America leads the way in free-
dom of rights and liberty.
The following is a quote
from a friend. (Author Veva
Lewis)
"America, the Beautiful ...
You've felt the wheels of
progress all across your prairie
breast,
"You've blazed a path of
glory from your east coast to
your west.
"You've welcomed every
stranger who has stepped upon
your shore,
"You've aided those less for-
tunate for 200 years or more.
"You've seen the prairie
schooner fade into the western
sun,
"You've felt the steel of rail-
ways strung across you 'by the
ton,
"Then the ribbons of your
highways have unrolled from
shore to shore,
"To transport and feed your
children for 200 years, or more.
"You've sent your own to
succor the oppressed of other
lands
"And to the ones in trouble,
you've extended open hands,
"You've acknowledged God
above you as- your pilot and
your oar,
"And you've prospered by
His blessings these 200 years,
or more.
"May the children of your
future cast their lot on
Freedom's side,
"May they keep the
Constitution that has stood
against the tide.
"Of bad times and of rebel-
lions which have knocked upon
your door
"Then this country will pro-
tect them for 200 years, once
more."
May we always be a thankful
people to live in this great
nation which still remains free.
Happy birthday, USA, and may
God bless you.

Why are they

illegal now?

Editor:
Has anyone thought the clos-
ing of the arcades at this time
might have something to do
with the legalized gambling bill
that -will be coming up for a
vote again in the future?
What a way to get us senior
citizens to vote for the bill, so
we can have our arcades back.
Devious, isn't it? How could
these arcades get a license to
operate if it was illegal? Put
your thinking caps on and ask
yourself why this came up now
and why it is suddenly illegal.
Legalized gambling was
voted out when it came up the
last time. What would the peo-
ple wanting it legalized do to
make sure it passed? Whose
pockets would they fill and
what would they do to make
sure it passed this time?
I wonder if they closed all
the arcades throughout the
state? There should be a way to
check and:find out.
Take away the innocent
arcades thus leaving the senior
citizens without a place to pass
the time having innocent fun.
Just another way of our gov-
ernment in action. Sell them a
license to open for business
then go in and close it down.
Did they give the money back
to the businesses for what they
paid for licensing?
There has to be a reason for
why this came up now after
They have been operating for a
long, time. Sorry, but the way
my mind works, this seems to
be a perfectly reasonable expla-
nation. If there is any other I


nist, that freedom should only
be expressed with the views of
a conservative Republican.
If we submit to this "logic,"
we move closer and closer to
dictatorship in the United
States.
I have some concern that this
man is lauded, not because of
his repetitious and tiresome
battering of all who are not in
agreement with his extremely
slanted thinking, but because
he is the son of past United
States President Ronald
Reagan.
It is unfortunate that he has
inherited little of his father's
diplomacy, charisma and man-
ner of expression.
It is easy to be blatantly crit-
ical of an opposing opinion
when you are on the side of the
majority.
In childhood, we called that
bullying.
I encourage a fair exchange
of ideas, but his opinions are
unearthing nothing new, neither
are they encouraging nor sug-
gesting solution as his column
takes up valuable inches of
news space.
What is the point?

Lake Placid wins

By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Folks will be
talking about Saturday after-
noon's Dixie Youth Majors
District 8 championship game
between Sebring American and
Lake Placid for many years.
That's because it took eight
innings 'to decide the outcome
between these two highly tal-
ented teams. When it counted
most in the top of the eighth
inning with the game even at 4


apiece, Lake Placid got a RBI
double from Colby Delaney to
drive in Brody Carr for what
proved to be just enough for the
5-4 win.
Sebring American and
Sebring National will meet
Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Max Long

mine the district's other berth in
the state tournament.

Avon Park freshman Julie Lamb tops

youthful All-County softball team


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
' Youth was served up with'a
spoonful of sugar in Highlands
County softball this season.
Freshmen and sophomores
dominate the 2005 News-Sun
All-Highlands County Softball
Team, and they're led by Avon
Park catcher and Player of the
Year Julie Lamb, a freshman
whom Lady Red Devils head
coach Mike Cobb noted for her
congeniality as well as her on-
field prowess.
"She had a great year. She*
hit the ball all year for us," he
said. "She's just an outstanding
player who does what you ask,
and never gives you any trou-
ble."
Lamb sizzled at the plate,
compiling a .451 batting aver-
age, and was just as valuable
behind the plate, Cobb said.
"The pitchers liked her," he
said. "She was able to get
along with everybody. Julie is
just one of those kids who is
the sweetest kid you can meet.
"She just does what's asked
and does her.job well. I can't
say enough good about her.
She's just a very good kid,
works real hard and really
strives to be the best. That's
kind of what we were looking
for."
Now, Cobb is looking for
even more.
"She's playing a lot of travel


ball right now, and hitting a lot
of home runs, so we look for
her to be greatly improved next
year," he said.
Here is the rest of the All-
County team:

Heather Barnes
Avon Park
Lamb's classmate figures to
be a fixture at shortstop for
several years after batting .352
with 18 RBIs in her team's 21
games this year.
"The two of them were pret-
ty tough," Cobb said of Lamb
and Barnes together. "To see
two of them in the first three
batters that's not any pitch-
er's dream to see them come
up."
Even alone, Barnes, who
had her share of success in the
county Dixie Boys league as
well this spring, is an intimi-
dating threat in any lineup.
"She's going to be an awe-
some player."

Jessica Cormier
Avon Park
The sophomore second base-
man was third on the team with
a .323 batting average and sec-.
ond with 17 RBIs, and brought
another dimension to the plate.
"Where she really showed
her best this year is she was
able to go opposite field,"


Cobb said. "A lot of girl' had
problems going opposite field
with the bat. Having that
inside-out swing, she v. a able
to place the ball where he
wanted.

Meghann Jackson
Avon Park
An anchor at third
base, the senior bat-
ted .274 and drove in '
12 runs.
"She's just rock-
solid at third. It
takes a lot of guts to
stay in there as
close as we make
them play," Cobb
said. "She's going
to be hard to
replace. Third
base is a
hard
position .-P
to play."
Yet Cobb commended her
most for the leadership she and
classmate Annesly Wood
showed for the young Lady
Devils.
"As far as leadership goes,
they really were there for us all
year," he said.

Katherine Landress
Avon Park
Pressed into a larger role
while regular starter Amanda


.-








Tmndell
bailed j rist
injur., the senior
e\celed, racking up a 1.96
ERA jnd a 5-4 record.
"'She did a good job stepping
up all year, not just when
Amanda was hurt," Cobb said.
"Using two pitchers is always
more effective, and she stepped
up this year and did her job.
She had a good year, and right
there at the end, her bat came
alive."

Amanda Tindell
Avon Park
Tindell won nine games on
the mound, with a 1.47 ERA,
despite a painful wrist injury
that affected her ability to grip
pitches. .,


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Sebring's Jocelyn Dunn, 18, chips out of the sand onto the 7th green at the
Bagwell Junior Golf Tournament at River Greens on Friday morning.


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK For years Aaron Snyder
loved to keep hole no. 8 at River Greens in
the back of his noggin.
In fact, "Aaron said he hated hole No. 8
and that he always goes out of bounds,"
Suzie Gentry said.
"It's too narrow," Snyder explained.
Now it's the hole he'll never forget.
Despite the best shot of the round, Snyder
still finds himself out of the pack with a
two-day score of 160, 22 strokes behind
overall leader Patrick Lamb of Lake Wales
whose low-round of 66 topped all others
after two rounds of the Bagwell Junior
Tournament at River Greens. His six-under
day was the best round of his young career.
.Lamb finished second behind Cody
Brownell in last years Bagwell Tournament
but finds himself with a comfortable four-
shot lead of 138 heading into today's final
round.
"I feel like i'm in great position," Lamb
said. "I've got to keep on with what I'm
doing. I played a little smarter (Saturday)
and birdied the holes I didn't yesterday.
"This has been pretty good last couple
years i've played good here."
"Patrick really set himself up in good

"Her
tnkeouts
would have
been a lot
heavier," Cobb said. "She had
a lot more per game in the first
part of the season."
Nonetheless, the junior con-
trol artist had a nearly 5-to-i
strikeouts-to-walks ratio.
"She was able to move the
ball where we needed it, and
didn't lose her composure and
didn't walk a lot. She was a
battler, and she hit the ball as
well."

position," course owner Lisa Davis said.
Brownell's second day score of 68 pro-
pelled him into second place.
Yet while most players were bouncing
around the fairway, hoping to par No. 8 or
settle for bogey during the first round Friday
morning, Snyder, a Sel5ring High School
sophomore, decided to simply pull out his
driver and wax his ball and hope for the best
because of his recent struggles with the
hole. It seemed like his best option.
"He said he was going to take his driver
and rip it and that's what he did," Gentry
added.
The result initiated him into an elite
group with Happy Gilmore when his a 260-
yard drive ripped through the fairway and
on to the green for a hole-in-one on his self-
proclaimed worst hole, aceing the par-4.
Gentry was among a group of spectators
ahead of Snyder's group and was standing
near the green when she saw it bounce on
the fringe and then roll in.
"It just rolled right up by the pin and then
lodged between the pin and the side of the
cup," said Gentry. "And then the wind blew
a little bit and that ball just fell inside the
cup and we all started hollering out.
"We were jumping out of the cart and

CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Sebring National baserunner Michael Grimaldo slides underneath Sebring American third baseman
Buddy Mays as the ball eluded him Friday night.


TITLE
Continued from 1E
onship like this ever before, still
had to get three outs against a
very strong Sebring team.
Pitching his second inning of
relief, right-hander Edwin
"E.J." Velazquez got two infield
groundouts, the second one
requiring a key stretch from
first baseman T6mmy
Bertoniere. Then No. 3 hitter
Corbin Hoffner drew a walk
bringing up Daniel Ware,
who'd driven four runs in the
morning game against Sebring
National. Ware grounded a hot
shot to shortstop, but Carr was
there for the scoop and he ran to
second and forced out Hoffner
to end the game.
Head coach Mark Callahan
was momentarily speechless
after the game, but then could-
n't stop talking about how well
his players did in the game and
the tournament.
"This is an awesome win for
Lake Placid," Callahan said.
"The -kidsdid every: bit..of ik '
- They have a lot of heart. We
were down (3-0 until fifth
inning) and we came back. That
was a good team."
Mark Greenauer, who was 3
for 4 with a run, said the win
feels great and they won it with
teamwork.
Sebring scored three runs in
the bottom of the first when
Matt Grubb hit a two-run homer
and Hoffner reached on an error
and scored. Lake Placid came
back with three runs in the top
of the fifth. Greenauer set the
table with a leadoff single and
Dylan Weber-Callahan drove in
a run with a single. Pike
Cloninger also delivered the big
blast, a RBI single that scored
Weber-Callahan and Geo
Rosario (walked) to tie the
game at 3-3.
Bertoniere, who was 2-2,
doubled to open the sixth and
scored on an error to raise the
lead to 4-3. Sebring came back
with a Hoffner double with one
out in the bottom of the sixth
and scored on Ware's blast sin-
gle to right field.
Velazquez picked up the
win in two innings of relief
work. Carr worked 5 1/3
innings, striking out 10 and
scattering four hits and 1
unearned run. Delaney came in
an put out a fire with two big
strikeouts in the bottom of the
sixth to retire the side.
Lake Placid outhit Sebring
10'-4 for the game.
Grubb picked up the loss in
relief, going three solid innings
and giving up one run on four
hits.
Sebring American 10
Sebring National 6
.Trailing 5-4 late ifi the game
Saturday morning at Max Long
Recreation Complex, Sebring
-American scored three run
bursts in the top of the fifth and
sixth innings to advance to the 2
p.m. District 8 championship
game with Lake Placid.
Matt Grubb and Corbin
Hoffner walked with one out in
the top of the fifth to. set the
table and cleanup hitter Daniel
Ware delivered a two RBI sin-
gle to center field off Evan
Lewis to stake American to a 6-
5 lead. Ware, who was 2 for 4 at
the plate with four RBIs and
two runs, scored with the win-
ning run on an error off the bat
of Garrett -Lewis to 'raise the
lead to 7-5.


National got a run back in the
bottom of the fifth when
Gunnar Westergom legged out
an infield single with two out
and scored when Seth Abeln
rifled a triple to the gap in left-
center. Abeln's blast chased
weary winning pitcher Hoffner
for Grubb, who coaxed a
ground ball out to end the
threat. Grubb also earned the
save after retiring all four hit-
ters he faced in order and was
productive at- the plate, going 2
for 2 with two RBI and three
runs. Hoffner pitched the first
42/3 innings and struck out five
to get the win. .
American came right back
with three more runs in the top
of the sixth to put the game
away. Three straight walks by
two National pitchers set the
table and Hoffner-delivered a
two-run single to center field to
plate Taylor Townsend and
Felix Basulto. Grubb, who also
walked, scored on an error to
end game scoring.
Grubb came in and retired
Sebring National in order in the
bottom of the sixth to preserve
the victory.
National scored three runs in
the second inning to take an
early 3-0 lead. Tyler Stanaback
doubled and scored on Anthony
Hazgaden's base hit. Nathan
Greene also walked and scored.
American answered with four
runs in the top of the fourth.
Grubb and Hoffner pounded
RBI singles and Ware added a
two-run single and scored on a
fielder's choice by Garrett
Lewis to take a 4-3 lead.
But Sebring National came
back with two runs in the fourth
to take a 5-4 lead. Abeln singled
and came home on Matt
Randall's base hit. Michael
Grimaldo added a 'RBI single
and Gunnar Westergom added a
RBI single and two other runs
scored on an error.

Sebring National 8
Sebring American 5
A comeback simply wasn't in
the cards.
While it seemed that Sebring
American was on its way to
erasing an 8-0 deficit when five
straight batters reached and
scored in the fifth, Sebring
National pitcher Toby Solebello
righted himself and turned back
the rally for an 8-5 win Friday
night at Max Long Recreational
Complex.
"He's our guy, and in a must-
win game, you've got to go
with him," National head coach
Ryan Leaphart said of
Solebello. "We gave up. five
runs. He made a bad pitch to
Mr. Ware, and we had a little
shaky defense, but we're going
to win or lose with Toby."
The game had started in
Clewiston Friday afternoon, but
heavy rains forced it to be sus-
pended in the first inning and
resumed in the evening at
Sebring. Yet it wasn't until the
third-inning departure of
Corbin Hoffner, limited by
pitcher-use rules to two innings,
that National truly started on its
way to victory.
A leadoff walk to Michael
Grimaldo, who scored on an
error, and a Nathan Greene dou-
ble down the right-field line set
the stage for Seth Abeln's two-
run double to left-center, which
plated Kyle Cunningham and
James Heston. Matt Randall
then reached on an error and
stole home to bring in the last
run of a six-run third.


"We did have the big hits
when we did get those runners
on base, and you can't do any-
thing without baserunners,"
Leaphart said. "Baserunners get
the ball in play. Make kids this
age make plays. Sometimes
they don't, sometimes they do."
Randall was a key figure
again in the fourth, when
National added two key insur-
ance runs on his single up the
middle.
Yet with an 8-0 lead and
Toby Solebello holding
American hitless through 4 1/3
innings, National seemed to
need little help. Matthew Grubb
then singled to center for the
Americans' first hit, and after
Corbin Hoffner reached on an
error, Daniel Ware blasted a
three-run homer over the right-
field fence to revive the compe-
tition.
Garrett Lewis then beat out
an infield hit,.and Buddy Mays
reached on an error before Brad
Torres doubled to right for what
turned out to be the final
American hit.
Solebello hit a batter' and
walked another in the sixth, but
didn't allow a hit or a run in the
inning as he finished off the
victory, striking out eight as he
went the distance. He helped
himself out at the plate as well,
with a pair of hits, while Seth
Abeln led the way, going 3-for-
3.
Lake Placid 6
Clewiston 3
CLEWISTON Lake
Placid got its third victorious
complete-game pitching per-
formance Friday morning, and
needed just three hits to beat
Clewiston 6-3 and advance to
the championship series against
one or both of the Sebring
teams at the Dixie Youth
Majors District 8 tournament.
The game got started
Thursday night, but was sus-
pended by rain, along with the
Sebring National-Sebring
American semifinal that was to
have followed. The tournament
reconvened early Friday, and
Lake Placid took care of what it
started the day before.
On Thursday, Brody Carr
reached on a fielder's choice for
the second out in the top of the
first inning. Mark Greenauer
was Lake Placid's first base
runner when he was hit by a
pitch. Cleanup hitter Colby
Delaney then stepped into the
batter's box and was hit hard on
the elbow by the ball delivered
from starting right-hander Matt
Davis.
Then, in a bizarre turn, the
home plate umpire called "no
pitch's because he wasn't ready.
Regardless, Delaney was upset
and responded with a two-run
homer that cleared the fence,
the complex's exterior barrier; a
tree or two and came to rest
near the road.
Clewiston learned the hard
way not to make the big guy
mad and intentionally walked
him the next two times he visit-
ed the plate. Delaney's home
run was his second of the tour-
nament, and he also had two
complete-game pitching victo-
ries, one a no-hitter on opening
day June 25, and the other to
KO Avon Park on Tuesday.
Against Clewiston, yet
another Lake Placid hurler
stepped into .the limelight, as
right-hander Dylan Weber-
Callahan went the distance and
surrendered just one earned run
on four hits.

The sophomore led the Blue

The sophomore settled in

batting .321 with a team-high

"Kristen hit the ball pretty
good this year," Tolar said.
"She's only going to get better,
like Jessica (Cooley).
"The middle infield this year
was pretty tight. It was at times
tight as a drum. They're proba-

Jeanna Haynes
Sebring
As a senior, Haynes was
valuable at the plate with a
.311 average, and was able to
cover plenty of ground in the
outfield.
"There's no answer for
speed, and she's got a lot of

leadership as well. "She was
real quick, had a big glove, and
her offensive game's good.
She's really good getting down

The freshman batted .288,


tied for second on the team
with four extra-base hits, and
drove in seven runs while tak-

Lady 'Streaks.
"It takes a lot courage to
play that position, and she did

said. "We've got her three

With two shutouts, 67 strike-

"Kendall's capable of doing

Bass in full bloom of summer


We are well into summer
with temperatures in the upper
90s and our usual loud and
noisy thunderstorms are filling
up the lakes and pushing
streams out of their normal
banks.
While the abundance of
water in our lakes doesn't make
for better fishing, this is a gr6at
time for topwater baits.
Shad and other baitfish are
active at this time coming to the
top, often chased there by bass
below them. Watching for the
disturbance, they create, you'll
know exactly where to toss that
Zara Spook.

think the
Spook is
a good
choice, or
maybe the

Rapala,
i there are
OUTDOORS many other
OU S baits that
Lloyd Jones can be just
as effec-
tive. You'll
want a splasher, or even a chug-
ger; it's all up to you and what
your experience has let you be
confident in using. You may
have to experiment a little to
find the right bait. Keep your
topwater baits handy for quick
changing and fast action, which
this sometimes calls for.
When confronted ith. this
situation, use a quicker retrieve
- bass seem to prefer it now.
Stopping your retrieve to allow
the bait to sit for a bit will
sometimes trigger a big bass
into smacking your bait. Take
your time, stop your bait. Two
or even three times can really
get a big bass interested.
Another thing to consider- for
this kind of topwater fishing is
the line you are using. It can
make a difference in how your
bait works. I am not a salesman

Lake.


or booster of any line manufac-
turer, but I would use Berkley's
Fireline. This line floats well,
whereas regular monofilament
has a tendency to sink and pull
down the nose of your bait.
Monofilament can destroy
the action of your bait, causing
it to nose under rather than
splash or work the way that you
want it to do.. Your lures will
work the way they were intend-
ed with the Fireline, making
less work for you, and will help
in putting more bass into your
livewell.
Topwater bassin' is usually
better early in the morning or
later in the afternoon, but don't
write off that time between
11a.m. and 4 p.m. It is not a
major feeding time and you are
not going to catch a lot of bass.
But if you enjoy being out there
and don't mind the sun and the
heat of midday, you can still
find good fish willing to strike.
That big bass will be hanging
out near some submerged brush
or a weed patch just waiting
with a growling, hungry stom-
ach. Any bass you tempt into a
strike now will be a real quality


fish. The fish that you catch in
the middle of the day is going
to be bigger than average.
We know the more success-
ful times are early morning or
late afternoon, so if you are
using a diving crank bait or
worm, always keep a topwater
lure tied on and close at hand,
even in the middle of the day.
When you are on the lake
and clouds drift in, be alert and
keep an eye on the horizon.
This is our season for heavy
thunderstorms, and things can
get quite nasty in a hurry, espe-
cially out on the water. But
there is a benefit in a cloudy
day: It can extend your topwa-
ter bait casting time tremen-
dously. In fact, a surface lure
can be productive throughout
the day under cloudy and over-
cast conditions.
If and when the sun does
come out, don't give up on sur-
face lures. Occasionally toss
one; you may be pleasantly sur-
prised and take home a real tro-
phy.
