WHAT'S INSIDE


Supreme

Court gives

life in prison

without parole
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On Thursday,
the Florida Supreme Court
overturned Donny Crook's
death sentence in favor of a life
sentence without parole.
Crook was convicted in 1998
for the 1996 first-degree murder
of Betty-Sue Spurlock, 59, co-


owner of the former Bull Pen
Bar in Avon Park. Four years
later, the Florida Supreme
Court, -in an unsigned 4-3 deci-
sion, said the trial judge did not
consider evidence that Crook
had brain damage.
. The case was sent back to
10th Judicial Circuit Court
Judge J. David Langford for
another hearing, but he upheld
the death sentence.
On Thursday, justices
reversed that ruling, giving
Crook life in prison without
parole. He will serve it in con-
junction with two other life sen-
tences he already has from the
same case.


Crook was convicted of first-
degree murder, robbery and
sexual battery. Evidence in
those cases is
i unchallenged.
The murder
t was committed
during a sexual
Batter y .
Spurlock was
s e x u a 1 1 y
CROOK assaulted with
a pool cue stick
with such force that the cue
stick penetrated the length of
her body and penetrated the
base of her skull, killing her.
She was unconscious, but
alive until that time.


Crook had locked the door of
the Bull Pen bar in Avon Park
before attempting to rob her. He
later told police he saw her
counting money and wanted to
steal it to purchase crack.
Crook reportedly stabbed her
four times in the neck, knocked
her down and stomped on her
face, leaving shoe imprints and
breaking facial bones.
Crook's mother and numer-
ous mental health professionals
have testified that he had brain
damage, which should ,be con-.
sidered in sentencing.
When the jury asked whether
a life sentence without parole
really meant "life," Langford


declined to answer the question,
according to the Florida
Supreme Court ruling.
The jury voted 7-5 to recom-
mend the death sentence for the
murder conviction.
Under appeal, Crook's
lawyers said the trial court
should have considered his
brain damage during sentenc-
ing, found that his intelligence
was borderline retarded, and
found that the death sentence
was too heavy a sentence in his
case.
Among the reasons for this,
the court cited severe physical
abuse of Crook at an early age.

SEBRING Highlands
County residents got their first
taste of Hurricane Dennis early
Saturday morning when one of
the outer bands ripped through
the area.
"We had a 50 mile per hour
gust measured shortly after 6
a.m.," said National Weather
Service Meteorologist Russell
Hlenes in Tampa.
The weather service had
issued a tornado warning
Saturday at 5 a.m. and had a
report indicating a tree had
downed some power lines 'in
Lake Placid.
Henes said between midnight
and 8 a.m. Saturday, Highlands
County had registered just over
an inch of rain.
There were some weather-
related incidents recorded dur-
ing the early morning hours
Saturday. John Martz of Glades
Electric Cooperative said there
had been a "a couple of


instances" where power lines
had been downed but they were
minor and crews repaired them
quickly.
Progress Energy Corporate
Communications Specialist
Sheri Jacobs said about 2,200
Lake Placid area customers
were without electricity for
about a half hour Saturday
about 8 a.m. when a tree was
blown into some power lines.
The Highlands County
Emergency Operations Center,
was activated Friday at a Level.
2 status with what EOC
Director Tim Eures termed a
"skeleton crew."
* With the passing of the storm
officials anticipated it would
drop to a Level 3 by Suhday
morning.
In preparation for the big
storm, county officials Friday
had activated the hurricane hot-
line at 385-1112 for those with
storm related questions or con-

Water from hurricane, may


still cause county problems


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING As Hurricane
Dennis churns through the
Gulf of Mexico, local officials
are keeping a weather eye on
the storm to see exactly what
effect it might have on
Highlands County.
One thing that is of concern
to Highlands County Lakes
Manager Clell Ford is exactly
how much water will fall here
and what that will do to the
lake levels.
"Depending how deep we
get stuck in those rain bands
and how long they hang
around, we could get three to
four inches of rain," he said.
Because there was not a
normal dry season this past
spring, Ford said that lake lev-
els were "not where they
should be for July," indicating
most lakes in the county were
abnormally high.
"There's not that much
capacity in many of the lakes,
particularly those with homes
fairly close to the shore," he
said.
Ford said more than that, he
expected there might be some
problems downstream as
excess water finds its way out
of the lakes and heads south.


"For example, I expect the,
water management people
will be releasing water out of
'Lake June and that's going to
cause some problems down-
stream, there's no question
about that," he said.
Worse than releasing the
water would be not releasing
it, Ford said.
It appears Lake Istokpoga'
is in relative-
ly' good "I
shape.
"The water
district has
done a splen-
did job in
getting that
lake down FORD
better than
any lake in the county," he
said.
Ford estimated there had
been as much as 2,000-3,000
cubic feet per second per day
since the first of June.
"That's an awful lot of
water," he said.
"Consequently, the lake is a
foot and a half below the spill-
way elevation."
Meanwhile, the spillway at
Little Lake Jackson continues
to overflow. Ford said that
was not a new situation.
"If the water hasn't been


going over, it has been very
close to going over since last
August. That's how much
water we've had. We didn't
really have that much of a dry
season," he said.
Ford reported that due to
the flood control structure, he
did not anticipate a problem.
He said the situation on
Lake Josephine was very sim-
ilar due to the spillway system
there.
"Although it is relatively
high, it's always that way and
the system is designed to han-
dle a lot of water coming in,"
he said.
As for the other lakes, Ford
said county crews had been
doing their best to make cer-
tain all of the water control
structures were clear of
debris. However, he called on
any citizen who sees any
blockages to notify the county
immediately.
In addition to the lakes,
there are plenty of rivers and
creeks around. Ford said some
of them also are pretty full.
"Josephine Creek and
Arbuckle Creek are running
well above normal," he said.
"In fact, I think Josephine
Creek has been running at

Sheriff,

police

looking at

centralized

dispatch

center
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Right now,
when someone calls 911, that
call goes to any of four agen-
cies, depending on where the
caller is or what kind of
phone is used.
That dispatcher has no idea
if another agency's officers
are nearby or can help.
Transferring information
takes time, and often, the
caller may have to repeat
information to the new
agency.
If county and municipal
agencies can agree to it, that
emergency call may go to
either the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office or the
Emergency Operations
Center, and get dispatched to
city departments from there.
Last week, Highlands
County law enforcement met
with county and municipal
officials to suggest consoli-
dating public safety dispatch-
ers.
Avon Park police, Sebring
police, the sheriff's office,
city and county fire depart-
ments and emergency med-
ical services all have separate
dispatchers or separate chan-
nels. Mutual aid can get ham-
pered by differences in radio
channels or equipment or not
using the same software on
in-car computers.
If it's all in one place, how-
ever, citizens could talk once
to the dispatch operator, who
would then call city or county
law enforcement, city or
county fire departments,
and/or an ambulance.
The system would have
every agency, on the: same
software :Police ,officers-
- 'could usq in,-a,'ji computers to
access the jail booking files,
without departments having
to pay software licensing fees
,to different vendors.
Meanwhile, the 911 opera-
tor would know where all of
the available resources are. If'
they need to call mutual aid,
it's done faster.
"I see less difficulty in
terms of mutual aid," Benton
said, "because (it's) all on the
same channel. Once the
request is made to assist,
that's mutual aid."
Right now, the sheriff's
office already dispatches for
Lake Placid Police
Department, and often called
them to back up deputies.
Cities have jurisdiction
inside their limits and the
sheriff's office has jurisdic-
tion throughout the county,
Benton said. Municipal
departments have no authori-
ty in the county unless
requested to help by the sher-
iff's office.
If just law enforcement
consolidates, it could save
$474,000 in the first year in
salaries, software licenses,
and the cost of housing and
maintaining the equipment.

Washington Heights residents give input to Sebring plan


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Whatever
improvements the Community
Redevelopment Agency makes
to downtown Sebring,
Washington Heights residents
want to be included.
They will be, said Pete
Pollard, executive director for
the Community Redevelopment
Agency. RMPK Group, of
Sarasota, has revised the rede-
velopment plan for the city,
which includes a neighborhood
plan for Washington Heights.
Only part of Washington
Heights is in the city, and only
part of that about one block
off Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard (formerly Highlands
Avenue) is. in the redevelop-
ment area, Pollard said.
Improvements include new


lighting and a $1.25 million
Community Development
Block Grant to improve side-
walks, curbs, and gutters in
northeast Sebring, specifically
Washington Heights and nearby
areas.
Pollard said that may be
approved, since the Department
of Community Affairs has
scheduled a site visit.
Once improvements are
made, Pollard said, other areas
will benefit. The city may
expand the redevelopment area
in the future.
In the meantime, the redevel-
opment agency will hold dis-
cussions with residents to get
them what they want. Tracy
Mullins, development consult-
ant with Michael Joachim &
Associates of Lakeland, is
working with the city to imple-


ment the redevelopment plan
update. He met with a small
group of residents Thursday
night.
Some residents want to bring
in a big retailer or fast food
restaurant, but Mullins said
they would need to work up to
that. First, residents must invest
in their area with a locally
owned grocery or clothing
store. Once it draws more peo-
ple, they can attract a bigger
store.
Some companies look at how
much individual households
earn, Mullins said. They also
consider the combined earnings
of an area when deciding
whether they have a market.-
"One successful business
brings others," he said. "You
have to create density."
That's one thing the down-


town area needs, Mullins said.
While implementing the rede-
velopment plan, he'll look at
other factors such as designing
codes to prevent "cookie-cut-
ter" communities or what he
called "McMansions." He also
believes in using crime preven-
tion by design a planning
perspective that designs public
areas to work- better as safe
communities.
Robert Saffold said the future
Sebring Parkway will cut off
the community from many of
the 9,000 vehicle trips that go
through the area each day,
including those to and from the
offices of The School Board of
Highlands County. To compen-
sate for this, he would like to
have a more direct connection
to the area other than East
Center Avenue.


Washington Heights resi-
dents also want a pedestrian
walkway over the Parkway, but
Mullins said those can be
extremely expensive. For
example, it can cost as much as
$1 million to make them com-
ply with the Americans with
Disabilities Act. They usually
get cut from such projects.
If the residents truly want
such a walkway, Mullins said,
he advised therh to apply slow
and steady pressure and persua-
sion. That works when protest
doesn't, he said.
Pollard has recommended
residents move aggressively to
incorporate as a not-for-profit
organization. It carries more
clout with the city council.
That process has started but
is not yet complete, according
to Saffold.


Organization
offering all-
expenses-paid trips
to Australia and
South Korea to
promote peace and
understanding
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Would you
like to go to Australia or South
Korea all expenses paid?
If the answer is yes,
Rotarians have a deal you
might not be able to pass uip.
Representatives of Rotary
District 6890 are looking for
team members to take the trips
as part of an exchange program.
The district encompasses
Highlands, Hardee
Hillsborough and Polk coun-
, ,ties, ;. ..- ,,;.. ;
t Rotary is putting together,
two teams of five members'
each, said Beverly Hunt, the
district's assistant governor and
its co-chairworman for the
Group Study Exchange pro-
gram.
The team leader will be a
Rotarian. The four other four
members will be people who
are not Rotarians and not relat-
ed to Rotarians.
The members must be
between the ages of 25-40 and
have held a job for at least two
years.
Those selected for the teams
will spend four weeks abroad.
They will live with Rotarians,
have what Hunt called "voca-
tional experiences" and take in
the local sights.
Hunt is hoping to place at
least one Highlands County res-
ident on each of the two teams.
One team be going to New
South Wales, Australia, in the
Wagga Wagga, Coolangatta and
Griffith area. It will leave
March 9.
The other team will leave
next April for the Pohang area
of South Korea.
"That actually is a vacation
destination for the South
Koreans," Hunt said. "It's a
very nice and historic area."


Hunt said the main goal was
to send a team that would get a
variety of cultural and voca-
tional experiences.
"This past year we had a
group that had a public rela-
tions expert, a podiatrist and a
.governmental official like our
clerk of courts," she said.
Once the team is selected,
the Rotary club contacts the
host group and gives it informa-
tion about the team members so
that plans may be coordinated.
"That way they can find out
ways they are the same and
things that might be somewhat
different," she said.
Because a language barrier is
anticipated, Hunt said, Rotary
International provides some
,services, such as the teaching of
language and culture.
By accident, Rotary located a
person -from the Tampa area
who speaks fluent Korean and,
is willing to teach the
Americans.
The point of the trips is to
-promote the world peace.
"Part of Rotary's philosophy
is that there cannot be world
peace until there is understand-
ing and what better way to get
that, than to have one on one
experiences with host families
in individual countries," Hunt
said.
As part of the program, those
who take the trips would be
responsible for making presen-
tations to the Rotary clubs in
the host country. Once they
return, the participants also
would be asked to make subse-
quent presentations to the vari-
ous local clubs
Renee Bennett, of Avon
Park, went to the Finland sever-
al years ago as part of the pro-
gram.
"She was not a Rotarian at
the time, but has since joined
and now is the president of the
Avon Park Breakfast Rotary
Club," Hunt said.

Round two set for Historical Society and


By BARRY FOSTER ,
News-Sun
AVON PARK A wrestling
match between The Episcopal
Church of the Redeemer and
the Avon Park Historical
Society will enter round two
Tuesday night as both sides
present their cases this time
to the Avon Park Planning and
Zoning Board.
The historical society wants
the church declared an historic
structure. Church officials do
not.
The sides clashed before the
city council on June 27. Mayor
Tom Mackin referred the par-
ties to the Planning and Zoning


Board.
Under the city's land devel-
opment regulations, the
Planning and Zoning Board
must hear the issue first and
then make an opinion for the
council to consider. .
In June historical society
President Jean Jordan said the
group wants to save a number
of city buildings with historical
significance.
"We as a historical society
are trying to save all our histo-
ry," Jordan said.
The church's rector, Joyce
Helms, told the council that the
congregation had no plans to
tear down the building,,as it had


Episcopal church
been rumored.
"This is not under your juris-
diction," Holmes told the coun-
cil, referring to the naming of
the building as an historic site.
Located at 20 E. Pleasant St.,
the church has been described as
an "English Gothic wood and
stucco building with memorial
windows."
According to the centennial
history of Avon' Park, the lot
where the church sits was pur-
chased in 1894 for $1 from
John C. Brouygader, a native of
Wales who had returned to his
homeland.
The first rector, John
Frederick Porter, came in 1895.

Portable wheelchair brings first smile to 6-year-old's face


Mother had been
carrying around
partially paralyzed
girl until Children's
Advocacy Center
and others gave her
the gift of mobility
By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
The nearly blind 6-year old
clapped her hands and began to
smile as her mother placed her
in the folding wheelchair and
said, "It's yours, honey, this
chair is yours."
Tamara Creesong received
the wheelchair through the con-
certed efforts of certain com-
munity leaders. A.J. "Bucky"
Kahn, Norman Smith, Jeffrey
Roth and Kevin Roberts had
just completed assembling the
wheelchair in the Children's
Advocacy Center before
Tamara's mother, Olivia, gave it
to her.
Later, at the Lions Club
lunch, Lion President Norman
Smith said there wasn't a dry
-eye in the clubhouse when
Olivia told the group that it was
the first time she had seen her
daughter smile.
Smith and Kahn invited the
family to the Lions meeting so
that the club members could
meet the family that they were
helping.
The drama continued when
Vie Webster brought her former
husband's seeing-eye dog, Paris
into the meeting room. With
only peripheral vision, Tamara
noticed the dog, began clapping
her hands and reached out to pat
him on the head and smiled for
the second time.
This heart-warming series of
events began with a phone call
from Dot Lee to Kahn. She said
a friend's partially paralyzed

daughter needed a folding
wheelchair.
.Olivia Cresong had been car-
rying Tamara everywhere she
went because the girl's wheel-
chair was not portable. Kahn
responded immediately, "We
don't have any children's
wheelchairs at all, but I will see
what we can do."
Kahn contacted Highlands
County Human Services and
discussed the problem with
Mary Foy. She contacted Jeff
Roth, director of the Children's
Advocacy Center. This resulted
in the discouraging news that its


budget could not handle the
high price of more than $2,000.
Medicare wouldn't approve the
purchase either.
Not to be defeated, Kahn
searched the Internet and found
a child's folding chair for $500.
Roth agreed that the Children's
Advocacy Center's budget
could manage that and the chair
was ordered.
The men gathered to assem-
ble the chair and called the
Cresong family. Olivia brought

Police re

Ir Highlands County report


Couple charged

with cocaine

possession
AVON PARK When
police stopped a car June 28,
knowing the driver had a sus-
pended license, they appar-
ently also found drugs on him
and his passenger.
At 4:13 a.m. Tuesday, June
28, Avon Park police stopped
Joseph Carrube, 39, of Avon
Park, for being parked at a
business early in the morning.
Arrest reports said they rec-
ognized him as having a
revoked license, which dis-
patchers confirmed as having
been revoked in November
1995 for 10 years because of
a driving under the influence
charge.
Kimberly Ann
Musselwhite, 37, of Sebring,
was his passenger.
After arresting Carrube,
police searched his tan 1997
Chevrolet, and found a glass
tube in a cigarette pack under
the center arm rest. When
questioned, he allegedly said
the "crack stem" was his.
Reports said one end had a
rubber piece on it. The other
end was burned and had part
of a Brillo pad stuffed in it.
White residue on the inside of
the tube tested positive for
cocaine, arrest reports said.
Police also had asked
Musselwhite to empty her
pockets. She removed a ciga-
rette pack from her right shirt
pocket. It was open and the
officer saw it also contained a
glass tube with its end packed
with Brillo pad and burned.
She told police it was hers,
arrest reports said. White
residue on the inside of her
tube also tested positive for
cocaine.
Carrube was charged with
driving with a license sus-
pended habitual offender
- possession of cocaine and
possession of drug parapher-
nalia. Bail was set at $2,500.
Musselwhite was charged
with possession of both
cocaine and drug parapherna-
lia. Her bond was $1,500.

Williams

booked for

possession

of meth
AVON PARK Broken
tag lights were enough to get
a driver pulled over early
June 28.
After investigating,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies apparently discov-
ered the man had metham-
phetamine on him.
At 3:55 a.m. Tuesday, June
28, a deputy saw a blue
Dodge extended cab pickup
heading northbound at U.S.
27 and Allamanda Boulevard
without working tag lights.
The deputy stopped the truck
and talked with the driver,
John Thomas Williams, 42, of
Wauchula.
According to reports, he
was acting nervous, and told
the deputy he was driving
around after having problems
with his wife. When the


SEBI
863/38


deputy asked to search the
truck for illegal drugs,
Williams said there were no
illegal drugs in the truck, and
declined consent.
The deputy called in a K-9
Unit from Avon Park Police
Department. Prior to having
the dog sniff the truck,
Williams told the deputy that
people had smoked "weed" in
the truck in the past. The dog
alerted for drugs, and the
deputy searched the truck.
According to arrest reports,
he found a glass pipe under-
neath the back seat. It had a
white powdery residue on the
inside and a dollar bill stuffed
in one end, allegedly used as
a filter. The powder field-test-
ed positive for inethampheta-
mine, reports said.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Williams told
the deputy the pipe was not
his and probably belonged to
his girlfriend.
The deputy arrested him
for possession of metham-
phetamine and possession of
drug paraphernalia. Bail was
set at $1,500.

2005 prediction

off to good start
By RIC LIUENBERG
Neiws-Suil ncorre'spoflt' it
In Tamnpa, at an early-May
gathering of weathermen and
emergency management offi-
cials, hurricane predictor Dr.
William Gray said more than a
dozen tropical storms could
form this hurricane season,
seven of them could develop
into hurricanes.
The professor of atmospheric
research, who leads the
Tropical Meteorological Project
at Colorado State University,
went on to say that three of the
seven would be major storms
on the scale of Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne,
which ravaged southern and
central Florida.
This weekend, all eyes in
Florida have been on Hurricane
Dennis, a category 3 hurricane.
Dennis is the fourth named
storm of the season, and the
first deemed to be a major hur-
ricane.
According to one local
builder, as the 2005 hurricane
season opened in June, more
than 125,000 homes were still
covered in the now-familiar
blue tarp. Roofers are still try-


ing to repair and re-roof last
year's hurricane damage.
It didn't help that within a
few hours of Gray's May pre-
diction, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion's own 2005 prediction
agreed with Gray's.
The current study of atmos-
pheric conditions that produce
hurricanes has evolved far
beyond the Galveston, Texas,
weatherman who had only
empiric observations that night
in 1900, when more than 6,000
of Galveston Island's residents
drowned in a storm surge more
than 20 feet high.
Not until World War II radar
did weathermen have an elec-
tronic eye to see into the dis-
tance, even in the darkness.
Then, they had some distance
measured in time, time to warn
of an imminent storm. But it
wasn't until recently, when
oceanography and satellite
images gave weathermen a
view of weather, that now, peo-
ple have days to prepare for an
approaching storm.
Today, Galveston's residents
would have more than five
days' time to prepare.
The three 2004 hurricanes
swept away 27 Floridian lives,
and, as precious as each life is,
far, far fewer than the 1900

SEBRING Avon Park city
officials have announced they
are receiving $200,000 each for
renovations to Donaldson Park
and Memorial Field. But that
appears to be just the tip of the
iceberg for grants from the
Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program.
Officials from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection have revealed
Highlands County is in line for
in excess of $1.5 million for
more than a half dozen such
projects in and around Avon
Park, Lake Placid and Sebring.
Two of the projects will be in
the city of Sebring. On the list
are a skateboard park as well as
improvements to the Gabe
- White Field playground in
Highlands Homes. '
The town of Lake Placid
actually received two grants,
although both will be used in
the same place Lake June
Park. The town purchased addi-
tional acreage for the park sev-
eral years ago and plans to
expand its playing fields and
facilities.
One project each is planned
for the community of Sun 'N
Lake and unincorporated
Highlands County.
It was in 2003 following an
impassioned plea by a local
youth that Sebring City Council
members voted to spend
$50,000 for land across the
street from Charlie Brown Park
as a site for the skateboard
facility.
A FRDAP grant for $200,000


now has been given the green
light to facilitate development
of the proposed park to be
located on Hawthorne Avenue
including land acquisition, site
preparation and construction.
Another $200,000 has been
earmarked for the recently ded-
icated Gabe White Field. That
money is destined to underwrite
a number of improvements
including four new picnic
pavilions, similar to the ones at
Rotary Park plus playground
equipment and renovations to
the basketball court there.
The town of Lake Placid will
be getting a pair of $200,000
grants from the program. Both
will be used for Lake June Park.
Among the amenities on which
that money will be spent
include a baseball field, play-
ground, a soccer field. fishing
pier, handball court and park-
ing.
Program spokeswoman
Sarah Williams said that Lake
Placid was able to get the dual
grants by putting different parts
of the project under separate
grant requests.
Highlands County commis-
sioners will be getting $200,000
from the state through the pro-
gram for the planned new soft-
ball and sports complex to be
located near Sebring High
School.
Reportedly, the bottom line
on that project could run in
excess of $4.5 million when
completed. The FRDAP money
is set to go to the construction
of soccer fields, a playground,
softball field and restroom.
Sun' 'N Lake got the sniallest
amount from the program at


New federal law to


track sexual predators


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Congressman Mark Foley
explained new legislation on
the verge of becoming law to an
audience of business leaders
and local-elected officials who
had gathered at the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce to hear
him speak Wednesday morning.
"We trace library books in
this country better than we
track sexual predators," he said.
The new legislation requires
that sexual predators provide an
address prior to their release
from prison. They will then
have 72 hours to arrive at that
address and check in with local
police departments. If they fail
to report, they will be charged
with a federal crime, and be re-
incarcerated.
Monitoring bracelets will be
required for the entirety of their
probation. If they violate proba-
tion, -they will be required to
wear a monitoring bracelet' for
life.
Two face-to-face interviews
will be required every year.
For the first time, Social
Security numbers will be used
to track the whereabouts of sex-
ual predators should they go
missing.
In other words, if a predator
attempts to slip into another


state, they can be tracked down
through employment records.
There is also a provision for
the creation of a national data
base, which all law enforce-
ment agencies can access.

$115,280. The special improve-
ment district would like to see
recreational improvements
including horseshoe pits, reno-
vation of the multi-purpose
field, a playground, baseball
field, volleyball, basketball
court, fishing pier, landscaping
and fencing.
The state's budget this year
included a record $42 million to
expand and improve local parks
across the Sunshine State. That
is a 100 percent increase over
last year's budget.
"This funding allows local
governments to preserve and
protect Florida's natural areas
for families to enjoy," said
Governor Jeb Bush.


City to help with playground


News-Sun
SEBRING Washington
Heights residents are still won-
dering when they will get a
playground.
John Jones III said Thursday
he was upset to find Gabe
White Park and the skateboard
park were approved for funding
by the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program. Meanwhile, efforts to
get a new playground in the
community have stalled.
Pete Pollard, executive direc-
tor of the Community


Redevelopment Agency, said
Robert Saffold and the Rev.
Robert Walker had been look-
ing for a new site. The play-
ground at Mary Toney Park is
on land owned by CSX
Transportation.
The city will need a site it
owns or can buy before Pollard
can submit a grant for new
playground equipment.
As for Gabe White Park and
the skateboard park, those grant
applications, have been in the
works since last September.


Pollard said.
Mark Skipper Field in the
Highlands Homes area was also
submitted, Pollard said, hut the
city can only submit two grant
applications per year to the
recreation development pro
gram.
Hopefully, Pollard can gel
one of those grants closed out
- with all of the contracts
signed and the funds dedicated
to the project by thii
October. If so. then the cily c:,.
apply again.

nology, weather is measured
constantly from the lolfty edges
ofl he atmosphere to the land
and deep into the sea, \\lii,.
gives us plenty oF time tolu i,

However, it s beei a lon,
time since near record inumbei.el

Why are Floridiani, I lcil'

CSU )spokesmnia Brad
Bohlander explained thalt iun i-
cane seasons tend to till ii
cycles, something hlobg-tci
Florida residents believe.
"We believe that we uae in all
era of increased topical shlim
activity," Bohlander said. 11t
you look, at eight of the last 10
years, 1995 to 2004. those have
been the most active 10 consec-
utive hurricane years o,
record."
This trend is expected to con
tinue for another 10 yeats, and:
perhaps beyond.
It might not be time yet t.
board up, but it is lime to stlnl
monitoring the tropical weallihe
and prepare if, as NOAA
and Gray believe, we are in aii
active tropical storm cycle.

Canker found again in Highlands


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Another citrus
canker has been found in
Highlands County. This time
the bacterial disease was locat-
ed in the Lykes Brothers
Basinger Grove on U.S. 98 east
of Sebring.
The infestation, found July 1,
is said to involve 20-25 trees.
The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has temporarily
reassigned about 100 personnel
, from dooryard sentinel survey
duty to inspecting commercial
citrus in order to try and help
determine the magnitude of
canker spread across the com-
mercial citrus areas.
There were 41 new commer-
cial citrus canker control


actions positive grove finds
- in the month of June
statewide according to Division
of Plant Industry.
Canker was found in an
Okeechobee County grove
early last week, it also was
found in late June in the
Rainbow Grove on State Road
70 in DeSoto County and in a
Southern Gardens Grove near
LaBelle.
Meanwhile, the Highlands
County Property Appraisers
office has asked that growers
who have had properties affect-
ed by the recent canker out-
breaks to keep them up to date
as much as possible in order for
them to adjust the appraisals for
those parcels.


Slippin' and slidin'



















-


.





JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
First Baptist Church of Sebring youth group members Chase
Berish, Caleb McGee and Chris Grubb, all 14, (from top) enjoy
a slip and slide in Jay and Natalie Grubb's backyard in Sebring
on Wednesday. 'During the summer, we try to do something dif-
ferent,' Student Ministries Director Scott Sjoblom said. 'During
the school year, we don't really get to hang out (and have fun).'


If a grove is lost to canker,
the property appraiser will
value that property at $50 per
acre while that property is
vacant and unused due to quar-
antine restrictions with the
resulting taxes only being about
85 cents per acre.
It is very important that the
appraiser's office is notified in
a timely fashion in order to get
the appraisal schedule modi-
fied.
Growers may want to talk
with the appraiser's office
about schedule modification
also if being in a quarantine
zone will impact grove returns,
i.e. fresh fruit.
Those who need additional
information may contact Tom
Andrews at 402-6659.
The Highlands County Citrus
Growers Association Board of
Directors will be meeting with
officials from the appraiser's
office in early July to review
this year's appraisal schedules,
so if you have any questions or
concerns let us know.
Decontamination
Every grower should have a
rigid decontamination program
in place for each person and
piece of equipment that comes
in contact with his or her prop-
erties.
DPI staff feels that proper
decontamination protocol can
go a long way in ensuring that
individual growers do not con-
tract citrus canker and can help
alleviate the spread of the dis-
ease.
All vendors, harvesters, crew
contractors, etc. should be
required to provide their citrus
canker compliance agreement
to the grower and show that
they have proper decontamina-
tion protocols in place.
Growers are strongly encour-
aged to report any violations of
canker decontamination proto-
cols by fellow growers, caretak-
ers, fruit handlers, governmen-
tal entities, private contractors,
etc. to the Division of Plant
Industry's office in Avon Park,
314-5900, or to Richard
Gaskella or Connie Riherd at
the Division of Plant Industry in
Gainesville, (352) 372-3505.

Academy


grabs


awards at


DJJ confab

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It was a
year ago that the Avon Park
Youth Academy achieved the
highest status granted by the
American Corrections
Association after an exhaustive
examination.
Now, the youth facility has
brought back an armload full of
trophies after attending the
recent Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice's annual con-
vention held in Daytona Beach.
"It was a security confer-
ence," Academy Director Pete
Zeegers said.
The yearly get-together
involves training sessions, sem-
inars and speeches by digni-
taries, including DJJ Secretary
W.G. "Bill" Bankhead.
In all, there were four sepa-
rate awards or nominations'
directed at the youth academy.
They first received a special
recognition for "best practices."
"We got the 2005 Best
Practice award for the creation
and production of our vocation-
al programs," Zeegers said.
The academy is structured
around the idea of training the
young men who have been
assigned there in a trade or
craft. After their release they
subsequently are given help in
finding a job in that area.
The idea is to reduce recidi-
vism by providing the young
men with a skill they can apply
in the marketplace.
The academy also received
the Restorative Justice Award
for 2005.
"We were recognized for our
project refurbishing bicycles,"
Zeegers said.
The academy has received
about 75 bicycles that were
confiscated by the Avon Park
Police Department. The
unclaimed twp-wheelers were
turned over to the academy-with
- the young-mrrn'there repairing
and restoring them. Ultimately,
they will be given to underpriv-
ileged ,ouih.
"We had a number of part-
ners in the community that all
donated money for this proj-
ect," Zeegers said. "There was
Wells Motor Company, Long's
Air Conditioning, Sandy's
'Bicycle Shop and the
Highlands County Children's
Services Council."


Amerikan ready to move



dirt on plant pot project


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It's been more
than a year in the making. Now
officials from Amerikan are
getting ready to break ground
for its new 30,000-square-foot
production facility south of
Sebring.
The official ceremony will be
Monday afternoon with actual
construction work to follow
shortly thereafter.
The schedule calls for the
construction to be completed
and the plant ready for opera-
tion in just under four months.
"We hope to be in production
on the first of December,"
Amerikan plant manager Ron
Buckley said.
By the end of the year,
Buckley said the company
hoped to have about two dozen
people working at the plant,
which will manufacture blow-
molded nursery containers.
"We have been awarded a
Quick Response Training Grant
from the state of Florida to help


us with the training of the
staff," he said.
The plant will be manufac-
turing what officially are
termed blow-molded nursery
containers. They are better rec-
ognized as the black plastic
plant pots holding flowers and
other ornamentals at most nurs-
eries, home improvement or
discount stores.
This will be the first such
manufacturing operation under
the Amerikan name. It is a col-
laboration of Florikan, a
Sarasota-based manufacturer of
nursery products and ITML in
Ontario, Canada.
"The distributor used to buy
their pots from ITML and sell
them in Florida. So now the dis-
tributor and manufacturer got
together and decided to make
their own company and gener-
ate their own products so we
can save on transportation,"
Buckley said.
Reportedly, L. Cobb
Construction will be building
the single story plant. Amerikan


officials reportedly inked a con-
tract with the firm this past
Wednesday.
While construction of the
plant goes on, a rail spur will be
extended onto the site for both
the import of raw materials and
the export of the finished prod-
ucts.
It was in March of this year
the city of Sebring received a
$300,000 to finance the con-
struction of the rail spur that
will bring the South Central
Florida Railway into the indus-
trial park.
Just like many things in
Florida, Buckley said the onset
of last year's hurricanes had
slowed the project significantly.
However, it now appears that
all the principals in the project
are ready to commence with the
construction work.
The project will be going in
at an industrial park on U.S. 27
south of Highlands Regional
Medical Center.


E.A. DeLaney Sr., Man of the Year for 1962

Avon Park Youth Facility Assistant Facility Administrator Norma
Wynn shows off her certificate from the Florida Department of
Juvenile Justice. She was one of 20 staff members statewide to be
nominated for the department's Employee of the Year award.


Zeegers said the goal was to
have 30 bicycles restored and
ready by Thanksgiving. Those
then would be donated to the
Toys for Tots campaign.
But it isn't only youngsters
that could benefit from that pro-
gram. Zeegers said they also are
in search of some adult-sized
three-wheeled bikes that could
be refurbished and donated to
senior citizens that might not be
able to afford them.
"We already have a couple of
names for recipients of those
bikes," he said.
Yet 'another honorarium was
bestowed on the academy for
best use of volunteer programs.
That was for the partnership the
academy has developed with
the Youth for Christ program.
"They come out to our facili-
ty three days a week and the
kids can participate," he said.
Zeegers stressed it is purely a
voluntary program but nearly a
third of the 200 residents there
participated in one way or
another.
In addition to Bible study
and other programs, Youth for
Christ also donated a flagpole


and flag, which now sits at the
center of the residence area.
"We used it for the first time
last year for the 'Meet You at
the Pole' event where students
come to offer their individual
devotionals," Zeegers said.
Finally, Assistant Facility
Administrator Norma Wynn
was one of 20 staff members
statewide to be nominated for
the Department of Juvenile
Justice Employee of the Year.
Zeegers took the post last
year. He maintained Wynn's
nomination came as a direct
result of the academy achieving
deemed status.
"She was the accreditation
manager," Zeegers said. "She's
the one who made it happen.
Among her other duties,
Wynn does internal investiga-
tions for the academy.
While the academy is the
third largest program in the
state, it is the largest to have
achieved the deemed status.
Wynn works for Academy
Senior Deputy Carl Knighton.
He was nominated last year for
the honor.

National


Guardsmen,


families prepare


for deployment

By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It was early last month that
two Avon Park National Guardsmen shipped out
for the Middle East with the Plant City unit of the
National Guard's 3rd Battalion, 116th Field
Artillery Regiment.
At that time, Florida National Guard Lt. Col.
Matthew Hearon said the next wave would be
deployed "in 60-90 days."
That time now has come.
National Guard Captain Patrick Thompson is
slated to be in Avon Park Monday night to give
the city council updates on plans for the unit,
which is based at the armory on U.S. 27 just
south of the city limits.
"We've got our official orders and we're going
to Iraq," Thompson said.
The group will be deployed as a security force
in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Patrick
did not indicate exactly where in that country the
unit might be sent.
Before being deployed.to the Mideast, the
guardsmen will make .a,stop at Fort Dix, N.J.
There they will be training in military police tac-
tics and maneuvers.
"We're actually a field artillery unit but we
will be deployed as a security force," he said.
Thompson said he and a number of other com-
mand personnel would be going to Fort Dix first
for leadership training.
"We'll be leaving Sunday night for Fort Dix.
Our advance training will be about three weeks
then we'll come back and get the rest of the com-
pany," he said.
The schooling at Fort Dix will involve such
things as how to react to what are termed "IEDs"
or improvised explosive devices
Final deployment is set for mid-August.
It will be Bravo Battery that will be deployed
out of Avon Park. It will combine with the
Arcadia and Wauchula batteries to make a single
company.

Shelter operators can decide
whether to have them sent to a
shelter specific for sexual
offenders or to have them
restricted to one part of the gen-
eral shelter.
If they fail to comply, law
enforcement at the shelters
would be there to enforce the
ordinance. Currently, the coun-
ty has proposed using the visi-
tor lobby of the Highlands
County Jail, which faces
Orange Street in downtown
Sebring.

The Highlands County com-
mission meets at 9 a.m.
Tuesday, in the boardroom at

National Guard Sgt. Ronnie Bertka holds his 10-
month-old son Ronnie Bertka Jr. at the National
Guard Armory Saturday afternoon. Guardsmen
and their families met there for a socialization ses-
sion and to establish a Family Readiness Network.
The local guardsmen will be deployed for Iraq in
mid-August.

Saturday, guardsmen and their families, gath-
ered at the Avon Park National Guard Armory to
establish a support group.
Known as a- Family Readiness Network, the
group is designed to help out in case one of the
unit's family members should run into problems.
"We do fund-raisers and some other things so
that we have the means to be of assistance in case
one of them runs into a bit of hard times," said
Sgt. 1st Class Roy Cabalo who serves as the
Family Readiness Coordinator.
In that capacity, Cabalo serves as the go-
between for the unit commander and the presi-
dent of the readiness network.
He emphasized the organization extended to
all members of the guardsmen's families.
"This is not just for wives and girlfriends," he
said. "This is for moms, dads, brothers and sisters
- this is for all the family members."
Family members sat at long tables eating a
complimentary lunch.


cerns.
Operators handling the lines
said the calls had been mostly
informational in nature but that
there also had been a bit of
"hand holding" and calming
some of the callers as to the
potential severity of the weath-
er.
Highlands County Public
Information Officer Sarah Beth
Hopton said the center had
received a number of calls from
outside the county inquiring as
to the weather situation but that
was not all.
"We got one call with some-
body asking what the situation
was in the Ukraine," she said.
"We're really not the be all and
end all of information, it really
is just a hurricane hotline."
The hotline is slated to stay
active at least until 7 p.m.
today.
Although no public hurricane
shelters were opened for the
brush with Hurricane Dennis,
Hopton said she was aware of
five families who had come to
Highlands County to seek
refuge from the storm.
"We've had a number of calls
and have booked some rooms,"
said Christine Hatfield from Inn
on the Lakes.
Hatfield chalked up a num-
ber of calls to people who had
come to Highlands County and
stayed at her hotel when
Hurricane Andrew ravaged
south Florida.
Officials at the Kenilworth
Lodge said they had not seen
any refugees, but the inclement
weather apparently brought out
a record crowd for this week-
end's Christmas in July arts and-
crafts show.
Friday and Saturday, the
county distributed sandbags at
the Sheriff's Tower Road loca-
tion. However there weren't
many takers.

Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and
noon.
Highlands County

four residents to pick up the

"Contractors were instructed

He also failed kindergarten,
attended 10 schools before
dropping out of the eighth
grade, and began using drugs
by age 8.
As a result of these and other
factors, mental health experts
said he suffered from an
impulse control disorder and
organic brain disorder affecting


his frontal lobe. Experts said
these factors made him easily
physically aggressive at minor
frustrations, sensitive to the
.effects of alcohol, and prone to
hallucinations, which con-
tributed to his violent crime.
Despite the violent nature of
the crime, justices argued that
the trial court didn't consider
alcohol, emotional disturbance,
his ability to appreciate the
criminality of his conduct when
sentencing him.


Assistant State Attorney
Steve Houchin said Friday that
any further appeal would have
to come from the Florida attor-
ney general's office, but he did-
n't expect one. The Florida
Supreme Court had already sent
the case back to Langford once.
This time, the justices simply
reversed his decision.
Because of appeal deadlines,
the decision won't be final until
after 30 days.

History repeats itself when

Dennis hits United States
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
As Hurricane Dennis 2005 chums through the Gulf of
Mexico, not many people remember a storm by the same name
that wandered around in the Atlantic Ocean in 1995 before its
remnants came ashore in the Carolinas.
Over its three-week lifespan it reached Category 2 status with
top winds of 105 miles per hour. But it mainly was a threat to
shipping, finally making landfall at Moorehead City, N.C. as a
tropical storm.
Dennis 1999 originated in the Bahaman islands where it
came to life Aug. 23. It originated in an area which historical-
ly has created some terrible hurricanes.
Dennis was the third storm to develop that year in a span of
just a few days. Forecasters at the time also were closely moni-
toring hurricanes Bret and Cindy.
On the Aug. 26, 1999, Dennis became a hurricane and began
its ominous track to the northwest toward the Eastern seaboard
of the United States.
For the next lt' o days the Category 2 hurricane \ ith w inds of
105 mph paralleled the coastline. charging then receding from
the coast at a number of places
Hurricane Dennis looked to move inland near the border
bet een South and North Carolina but instead brushed the coast
and look off into the Atlantic.
However instead of accelerating into open waters Hurricane
Dennis 1499 proceeded to stall about 100 miles off of the coast.
Vacationers ,%ho had e% acated the .Ouierbanks of North
Carolina days earlier had to \ alt w while the big storm whirled in
place.
During the stall. Dennis 1999 gradually and continuously lost
strength. Eventually) Dennis graitatied back toward the North
Carolina coast %%here landfall finally occurred Sept. 4 as a
strong tropical storm.
W\de-pread rains pushed the water tables higher across the
state and set the table for the disastrous \,isit b\ Hurricane
Floyd. \lMich v.ould come just a few% weeks later.

Classified ads for loans,.mostly a


dead end for desperate borrowers


Last week I received a phone
call from a Naples resident who
was swindled out of $700 in an
advance fee loan fraud.
Advance fee loan frauds aren't
new. The problem is, they keep
popping up.
Most victims fall prey to a
misleading classified advertise-
ment in the local newspaper
that says money is available for
loans. The ads usually run
under the financial or personal
sections and say something like
this, "Cash loans for any pur-
pose, bad credit OK."
The people who place these
ads are not lenders, do not rep-
resent lenders and have no
intentions of giving, you a loan.
They know that if you are
responding to a classified.
advertisement then you are
probably desperate and unable
to get a funding through a con-
ventional lending source like a
bank.
The classified ad lists a toll
free number so you can apply
for the loan over the phone.
When you dial the number you
get an answering machine or a
"loan officer" who asks about
your needs. These unlicensed
loan brokers use fake names
and act sympathetic about your
financial hardship as they lure
you in.
You will be required to pro-
vide lots of personal informa-
tion. The ploy here is to make
you believe you are completing
a loan application. In reality, it
is more likely the information
will be used to steal your iden-
tity. At some point the broker
says he or she will call you back
after an underwriter or manager

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Van Hendrickson opens the lid of a jewelry box found in his store, Hollywood Galleries, in Sebring.


Hendrickson sells



reproduction antiques


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Van Hendrickson has been in
the antique reproduction business for 20 years,
specializing in paintings and-oriental-style fur-
nishings.
"I'm 70 and semi-retired," Hendrickson said.
After moving- to Sebring in December 2004, he
felt he needed something to do again. With his
expertise and love of the subject, it was an easy
decision to open Hollywood Galleries.
"I have lots of experience and I enjoy buying
and selling. My reproduction antiques ate from
China, Indonesia, Mexico, Spain, and Canada.
Although I like Oriental furnishings and paint-
ings best, I have bronzes, antique-style furniture
and accessories also. Plus, I not only sell, but will
buy antiques." Hendrickson said.
"Sebring is great because real estate is cheap-
er here. After selling and moving from the East
Coast, then buying a nice home here, you still
have cash in your pocket. And the taxes and
insurance are considerably less," Hendrickson
said.
The old-world style paintings are actually by
.modern painters, made to look antique and go
'well with those furnishings: "These are of good
'quality and the prices range from $100 to $1400
with elaborate gold frames to accentuate them,"
Hendrickson said.
On the floor, there's a Sirouk Persian runig that's


60 years old for $750, and a modem Kirman
(Iran), which is 20 years old for $900K "Rugs are
named for the different areas they come from.
Right now Romania is making good rugs. A lot
of the Christian rug makers from Iran went there
after that country's upheaval," Hendrickson said.
. The range of Hollywood Galleries' offerings
includes a large bronze mermaid for $1,800, an
angel reading a book (it looks bronze, but' is
made of a cheaper rosin) for $100. A large lion
for $350 is of fiberglass, as well as some whim-
sical pieces ranging from $75-$300.
"I can get anything a customer wants. I can
find anything. I'm presently in the process of
making up my own catalog showing all the pos-
sibilities. For instance, the $625 Chippendale
style cabinet comes with seven different styles of
chairs, and I can order any of them,"
Hendrickson said.
A large antique-style four-poster canopy bed
frame with crackle finish sells for $2,200. And a
handsome four-piece wicker set with intricately
carved swans on the edges is $1,800. But there
are items for every budget, like the bronze-look
kitty cat jewelry box for $20.
Hollywood Galleries is at 2403 North U.S. 27,
across from The Home Depot. For details, e-mail
cvh7777@aol.com or call 382-2714. Hours are
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday.


New Web site helps



tobacco chewers quit


Special to the News-Sun
The key to success in quit-
ting chewing tobacco is to cre-
ate a quit plan that includes
planning for tough situations
dealing with withdrawals and
getting support from others.
Chewers and dippers can
now create their own effective
quit plans at the ChewFree.com
Web site. Sponsored by the
National Cancer Institute,
ChewFree.com is a free, self-
help quitting program offered
as a part of a research study by
Oregon Research Institute.
"Many people mistakenly
believe that they can quit with
willpower alone," said Dr. Herb
Severson of Oregon Research
Institute, the project director.
"Our research has shown, how-
ever, that chewers and dippers
can be most successful if they
take the time to make a plan.
ChewFree.com provides those
interested in quitting with the
tools they need."
More than 6 million
Americans use smokeless
tobacco products regularly,
contributing to as many as
9,000 United States cancer
deaths each year. ,
The ChewFree.com quitting
program addresses the special
difficulties faced by chew and
snuff users, who have fewer
quitting resources than do
smokers All participants will
have access to a Web site con-
taining information and quitting
resources that have already
helped thousands of chewers to
quit. Participants are asked to
complete research and ques-
tionnaires online to help evalu-
ate the program.
For more "information, or to
enroll in the quitting program,
log on to www.chewfree.com.
Smokeless tobacco use is
widespread, especially among
young men.
S More than 5 percent of


American males use snuff or
chew products daily.,
In Florida, more than
145,000 people are regular
smokeless users.
Smokeless tobacco use leads
to oral cancer, other cancers and
heart disease.
The U.S. Surgeon General
has concluded that smokeless
tobacco can cause oral cancer
and can lead to nicotine addic-
tion.
More than three-quarters
of daily users have non-cancer-
ous and pre-cancerous lesions
in their mouths.
Smokeless use has been
linked to cancers of the esopha-
gus, larynx and stomach and is
a risk factor for cardiovascular
disease.


Smokeless tobacco is addic-
tive and as difficult to quit as
smoking.
Chewers and dippers have
similar, or even higher, levels of
nicotine in their bloodstreams
than smokers who smoke a
pack of cigarettes or more per
day.
Withdrawal from regular
smokeless tobacco use results,
in the same withdrawal symp-
toms and discomfort observed
in heavy cigarette smokers
attempting to quit.
Many smokeless users
want to 'quit, but few resources
exist to help them.

information are available upon

asked for 5 percent of
that amount, $500.
The swindler asks
you to mail a money
order to a post office
box outside of Florida -
or wire money via ,.
Western Union. Money
orders are requested
because they are as pC
good as cash and diffi-
cult to trace. If the fraud O|
involves a business
loan, the scam may go
on for much longer MI
while the swindler
keeps you on the hook.
With business loans the wait-
ing period can vary from sever-
al months to a year or more.
While waiting for the loan you
are frequently asked to provide
more information about your
business or finances. This is a
stalling tactic. Requesting more
information gives the impres-
sion that your loan application
is being processed and will be
funded. Often, even when you
provide the requested informa-
tion, you are told that the data is
incorrect or insufficient. That
gives the crooks more time to
work the scam.
After a while most victims of
business loan frauds grow tired
of waiting and become serious-
ly concerned. That is when you
realize you have been defraud-
ed. By then, the loan broker's
phone is disconnected, the
office is closed and the broker
is nowhere to found.
Another caveat. Don't think

that because a clas-
sified ad is running
in .the newspaper
that the newspaper
has checked its
credibility. In fact,
most newspapers
don't check adver-
.' tisements for truth-
fulness. Turn to the
R classified section
H of newspapers or
magazines and you
will likely find
n some form of dis-
claimer saying it is
your responsibility


to investigate before doing
business with the person or
business that placed the ad.
The above information is
important to remember because
fraudulent ads regularly appear
in newspapers. The phone num-
bers and sales pitches may be
different but they all lead to the
same dead end. You respond,
you send money, you are ripped
off.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Enjoy the

dance
The adult student dancers
listened with rapt attention
to their instructors. They
were in a circle and looked
with awe upon the team
demonstrating the moves of
the dance they were about to
learn.
I Some may have felt
inhibited by the instructors,
graceful movements, won-
dering if they would ever be
able to call themselves
dancers. Yet, they were there
willing to learn and step
out of their comfort zones.
One compelling lesson
was for each to know his
role in the dance. The male
partner learned to lead while
there female followed. If both
led or followed, they'd col-
lide. As the male led, he
guided his partner around
the floor with ease.
Consequently, with their
steps in sync, she displayed
the beauty of the movements
in the dance.
I enjoy dancing with my
husband. We do pretty well
together though a few les-
sons would be fun and help
smooth out the rough spots.
Whenever we trip each other
up, it's usually when I
ignore his cues and try to
take the lead. The move-
ments become stilted and
uncomfortable. Sometimes I
don't realize I'm doing it.
But, intentional or not, the
flow of the dance is inter-
rupted.
Some time ago, my
cousin sent me some
thoughts on dancing with
God. You might wonder
how such a thing is possible.
I learned that it's all in hov
- you look at the word, "guid-
ance."
This "dance" lesson
begins with taking apart the
word guidance. The last five
letters in the word obviously
spell, "dance." But, observ-
ing the other letters spells
out a fresh meaning.
The first letter, "G" can
represent God. The letters
"u" and "i" immediately fol-
low. From that dissection of
the word, the thoughts flow
to this conclusion: "God,
you, and I dance."
The lesson is not a diffi-
cult one. But, nevertheless,
invites our attention.
Let God lead in the dance
of life. In fact, let him
instruct. He will take you
through every circumstance
and season of life with the
flow and rhythm of the per-
fect Leader. Your life will
exhibit the beauty that
comes from willingly sur-
rendering and paying'atten-'
tion to the One who guides
your steps in the music of
life.
Sometimes we may find it
difficult to follow. The steps
God wants us to take may
seem puzzling at times. We
must depend totally on him
as he moves us out of our
comfort zones. Buit, if we
step out and try to lead, our
clumsy attempts will result
in delaying the intended pur-
pose. It's important to know
our role in the dance.
God sees the destination
of each step we take. It's so
much better to let him lead.
"I will instruct you and
teach you in the way you
should go; I will guide you
with My eye." (Psalm 32: 8,
NKJV)
What better "G-u-i-
dance" could we ask for?
Enjoy the dance. Selah

National Wildlife Federation


recognizes Harrell's backyard


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
W ith our building boom, the Julia butterfly
is being decimated. And their loss is a
warning sign that the environment is out
of balance.
"First, I started out with a small butter-
fly garden on ooe side of the.house," Bobbie Harrell
said. But last November, she turned her entire proper-
ty into a butterfly sanctuary. And now the National
Wildlife Federation has certified her propertyas a
Backyard Wildlife Habitat.
"I've always liked butterflies and Betty Podmore
with our Butterfly Friends group talked about saving
the Julia butterflies. Podmore also has a certified habi-
tat and she helped me create mine, offering books and
advice," Harrell said. '
The buiterfly de elops through a process called
. metamorphosis,-which means trunxformiaion or
change in shape. There are four stages.
'Eggs are laid on plants by the adult female but-
terfly. These are host plants like milkweed, passion
vines, dill, parsley, pipe vines, and acacia," Harrell
said. These plants will then become the food for the
caterpillars which will emerge in three days.
The job of the caterpillar is to eat. Its skin will

screened flight cage.


split and shed about four or five times. They will
grow 100 times their size during this stage.
After eating for 10-14 days, it will then spin di
cocoon and attach itself to a place to rest. It forms a
chrysalis and goes into
a type of hibernation
with changes going on
inside that are not visi-
ble. This stage can last
from a few weeks -to a
month.
i Finally the butter-
fly emerges. The adult
lifespan can range from Zt
a few weeks to several *t
months depending on hItI
the species of butterfly.

haven to protect them
from lizards, frogs, spi- Julia butterflies mate in a flight
ders, and wasps, to
name a few predators.,
The protection is necessary to rejuvenate the dwin-
dling species. Butterflies lay hundreds of eggs, but in
the wild only about 1 percent survives.
Lush pockets of flowers, shrubbery and trees hug
and invitingly meander Harrell's yard. It is a serene
and quiet place, with a relaxing fountain gurgling in
the background. Blooming flowers in bright colors
attract your attention as well as the butterflies. Their
sweet aromas can momentarily hypnotize, luring you
to sit in a nearby swing, close your eyes, and inhale
their sultry fragrances, while the surrounding sensitiv-
ity of various green plants envelops and calms ypu.
In a larger screened flight cage, some Julia butter-
flies flit and flitter on blooms, greedily eating the nec-
tar of penta, lantana, detropha, and passion' vine.
Butterflies have only a short lifespan, but can increase
their longevity if they modify their nectar diet. Some
plants such as the Mexican flame vine can increase
their life span. Harrell points out a pupa on the pas-
sion vine incamata that will develop into a gulf fritil-
lary. She points to several
which are visible outside
the cage in search of nectar.

ties.
"It took a few weeks after I sent
$15 to NWF, plus five photos, a
layout and measurements, with the
number and types.of plants repre- -
sented. I also think that being a
certified habitat would be a
Realtor's selling point," Harrell
said.


"It doesn't have to be a garden of this size. It could
be small, and in a comer. Look ... on that tree there's
a huge, dark female tiger swallowtail. That's why it's
worthwhile," Podmore said.
"At first the neighbors thought I was crazy for turn-
ing my entire yard into a butterfly sanctuary, but now
they love all the greenery, the inviting colors and
shapes. They've said that for years there were no but-
terflies, but now we all have them to enjoy," Harrell
said.
The four-year-old Butterfly Friends group meets at
1:30 p.m. the second Tuesday each month in a friend's
house. Podmore can be reached at 385-2605.
"Half of our members are from Lake Placid, and

ARTS & LEISURE



New books inspire interest and expand knowledge


Browsing the new book
shelves isn't for the indecisive.
You will end up taking home
too many books!
I had problems myself, and
finally had to call it quits when
my armload got too big, but
there are so many great titles
out there!
Take Kevin Telles Roberts'
book, "Munchies." Roberts
says his book has no-fear
recipes for the cuisine-
impaired.. Now here is a man
after my own heart, as evi-
denced by his introduction to
the desserts chapter:
"All the so-called food
experts (like mothers and nutri-
tionists and those who plan
school lunches) say you should
eat dessert only as the final
course of a meal. That's just
stupid. They are completely out
of touch. I like to eat dessert


depending on the mood I'm in."
You gotta love him!
Pull those old furniture
pieces out of the shed. Keep an
eye out at flea markets and
garage sales for dirty, castoff
wood furniture, and then use the
techniques you've seen demon-
strated in our idea book, "Flea
Market Furniture Makeovers."
Anyone willing to try decora-
tive painting can refurbish a.
home, make wonderful and last-
ing gifts, maybe even make
money on eBay!
How about trying a mosaic
tabletop, painting a plain lamp
and shade, or even repainting an
old brass lamp? Do you an
upholstered chair in good con-
dition, except it's stained or
faded? Why not try painting a
design onto the chair fabric?
A plain occasional table can
be repainted and a design added


using transfer paper.
Add a new drawer
pull, and it's a whole :"
new piece of furni-
ture. How about
decoupaging photo-
copies or digital
prints onto a folding .
screen (clip art
frames, motifs, and
borders are provid- LIIBRA
ed).
Thinking of old 'Ca
things, think super- Hes
natural and check out _
Jeff Belanger's "The
World's Most Haunted Places."
Did you know the White House
is considered to be haunted?
Boarding houses and hotels are
natural places for a haunting
tale, but what about the Andrew
Bayne Memorial Library in
Pittsburgh, Pa.?.
For really lonely spots, turn


^-



RY
ro
ses


to the haunting pic-
tures of "Lighthouses
of the South." Some
remain in use, but
there are those still
standing that have
known no human
habitation for
decades. Enjoy histo-
ry and beauty, stories
LINES of snakes and storms,
keepers in skirts, and
lyn lighthouses as pris-
>link ons and military tar-
- gets.
Speaking of mili-
tary targets, "when a hijacked
jetliner slammed into the
Pentagon on 9-11, LTC Brian
Birdwell was standing directly
in its path." Read the story of a
family's triumph of love and
faith in "Refined by Fire."
Birdwell's burns were signifi-
cant and extreme measures


were needed to save his life.
While Birdwell needed
expert attention, most of us
have tried to treat ourselves for
a minor burn, sunburn, cuts,
slivers, colds, sprains, or other
small ailments. You'll learn a
thing or two if you read
"Country Folk Medicine."
Books that may change your
future plans entirely: "Money
Mistakes You Can't Afford to
Make," "95 Mistakes Job
Seekers Make... and How to
Avoid Them," "A Will Is Not
Enough in Florida" and also by
the same author, "Guiding
Those Left Behind in Florida."
Finally, if you spend several
hours every week (or every
day) on your computer, a book
that may make a huge differ-
ence in how fast your computer
runs is on Sebring Library's
new books shelves.


Jeff Duntemann tries to reach
-out to all of us who use comput-
ers but don't know enough
about them in his very readable
book "Debunking Your Email,
Spam, and Viruses."
Duntemann says he wrote the
book for "anyone who is
annoyed by the torrent of spam
they receive and wants to stop
it, all users of e-mail, or anyone
who has had problems with
viruses, spyware, worms, or
other destructive malware."

istrative secretary of the

Your blood type may determine how blood is used

Type 0
Type 0 is the Universal Donor, meaning anybody can use your blood. Blood is needed for trauma
and emergency patients who need blood immediately and can't wait to be typed. Be an emergency
room lifesaver by donating every eight weeks.

Type A
Type A is the second most common blood type, and much of it goes to trauma patients. Your
blood is most valuable when donating platelets that are given to cancer patients undergoing
chemotherapy. Platelet donors can give every .two weeks;

Type B
Type B is a somewhat rare and often needed blood type. It is used to treat trauma patients and
children with sickle cell anemia.

TypeAB
Type AB is the universal plasma donor. Blood is most valuable when giving plasma because it
can be given to patients with any blood type. Plasma is most commonly used for burn patients,
patients requiring massive transfusions and patients with bleeding disorders. Provide someone a
lifeline! Plasma donors should donate every four weeks.

From the Florida Blood Centers: hrtp:,'.'wvww floridablooccenters.org

Removing squirrels is best



way to deal with nuisance


Third in a series
Last week we discussed
problems that home owners
encounter with squirrels. This
week, we'll talk about how to
solve some of them.
One of the biggest problems
is squirrels taking up residence
in the attic or elsewhere in the
house.
Squirrels usually come into
the attic or crawl space when an
entry point to the outside is not
repaired, either through neglect
or by failing to notice it. They
take advantage of broken
screens and roof tiles and gaps
between the roof and a wall.
Once a squirrel sets up
housekeeping, it's difficult to
persuade it to leave.
Experience says it is best ti
catch the squirrel. with a live
animal trap and then repair the
entry point.
If you attempt to chase out
the squirrel and then fix the
hole, it will almost always chew
its way back in causing more
damage than before.

Digging.
Squirrels dig to bury and
retrieve their food, and occa--
sionally they cause a nuisance
by digging up potted plants in
the late spring or digging in the
yard.


Repellents and
other methods rarely
stop the behavior.
More times than not,
the potted plants
have to be removed
from the squirrel's
reach.
Squirrels are also
good at removing
bulbs and trans-
planting them to
other places where
they think they
would look good.

Chewing
Home owners fre-
quently attempt to

SEASON

Highlands

Gardeners


solve squirrel-chewing prob-
lems by using repellents, but
they tend to be ineffective.
Visual repellents, such as owl
or snake decoys, are quickly
accepted by squirrels for what
they really are and then
ignored. Odor repellents, like
mothballs, rarely make an
impact. Taste repellents are the
only exception.
Trapping squirrels
In most cases, squirrel prob-
lems are best solved by trapping
the animal and moving it to
another location.
This requires two permits
from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation


Commission one to
trap the animal and
one to relocate it.
Trapping squirrels
often is easy, but there
are a few points that
must be considered.
One is the location.
Place traps in the
squirrel's line of travel
and where they can be
easily monitored.
The other is bait. Use
some type of food that
the squirrels is currently
eating or something he
will find irresistible.
Whole peanuts are a


good choice.

HABITAT
Continued from 1B
half from Sebring, so we car
pool. We even had one lady
from Avon Park," Podmore
said.
"For people who are just
starting out and want to create


a butterfly garden, Butterfly
Friends is a big help. We swap
plants and problems. There's a
constant need for plants to be
replaced, because of growth, or
squirrels that dig them out. We
are all much more, informed
and careful about spraying pes-
ticides on our lawns because it
will kill the butterflies. Not all


caterpillars are bad, and we
wish people would learn more
about them. Although their nat-
ural food sources are being
destroyed in the name of
growth, Butterfly Friends is
dedicated to attracting and
keeping butterflies, especially
the Julia.

Snakes are harmless when left alone


adW i -

Florida is full of wildlife and
that includes snakes. Luckily,
most snakes in Florida are non-
poisonous. Only six species out
of 45 are venomous the cop-
perhead, timber rattlesnake,
pigmy rattlesnake, eastern dia-
mondback, cottonmouth and
coral snake.
These snakes can be grouped
into two categories pit vipers
and Elapid. Pit vipers are rat-
tlesnakes, cottonmouths and
copperheads; the Elapid is the
coral snake.
Pit vipers get their name
because of the small "pit"
between the eye and the nostril.
It detects head and helps the
snakes sense prey at night.
These snakes deliver venom
through two fangs. They retract
when the snake is resting but
spring into biting position rap-
idly.
Coral snakes have small
mouths and short teeth, which
means they cannot deliver
venom as readily as pit vipers.
The bites of all of these ven-
omous snakes can be effective-
ly treated with antivenin.
Leave snakes alone
If you find a snake and you
don't know whether it is ven-
omous, leave it alone. Snakes
are not aggressive and will flee
from humans, unless they are
cornered. Occasionally, you
might encounter a snake that is
reluctant to leave a comfortable.
spot if it is basking in the sun to
keep warm.
On the rare occasion that you
do encounter a 'venomous
snake, follow simple safety
rules. When outdoors, be aware
of the places snakes hide, and


carry a flashlight at
night. Minimize
areas around your
house that serve as
hiding spots for
snakes.
If you are con-
fronted by a ven-
omous snake, back
away slowly. Do not
attempt to remove,
molest or kill the
snake as most bites
occur from unneces-
sary handling. Most
people that I know
who were bitten by a
snake were trying to
capture it to show
others.


NEV
FROM
WATER
Jennifer


Should you be bitten by a
venomous snake, do not panic.
An accelerated heart rate speeds
up the flow of blood and allows
the venom to travel faster
through the body.
Contrary to what has been
taught in the past, do not cut the
bite or try to suck the venom
out with your mouth. Also, do
not use a tourniquet. This cuts
blood flow completely and may
result in loss of the affected
limb. Don't apply cold or hot
packs either.
What should you do?
Remain calm and wash the bite
with soap and water.
Immobilize the limb by apply-
ing a split to the bitten
appendage and hold it below
the heart: Then get to the emer-
gency room as soon as possible.
If you are unable to 'reach
medical care within 30 minutes,
wrap a bandage two to four
inches above the bite to slow
the flow of venom without cut-
ting off blood flow from the

vein to the artery. A
good rule of thumb is
to make the band
loose enough that a
finger can slip under
i t.
A suction device
may be placed over
the bite to help draw
venom out of the
VS wound without mak-
ing cuts. Suction
THE instruments often are
ISHED included in commer-
cial snakebite kits.
Donze Though poisonous
S snakes can be dan-
gerous, snake venom
has a positive side.
According to the February 2002
issue of the Journal of
Evaluation in Clinical Practice,
ancrod, a product derived from
venom, could provide signifi-
cant benefits in treating stroke.
Proposals to use snake venom
to treat neuromuscular disor-
ders such as multiple .clerosis
have not reached the clinical
trial stage.
The most important thing to
remember when it comes to
snakes poisonous and non-
poisonous is that they are all
beneficial to the environment
and should be respected.
You can learn more about the
snakes of Florida by picking up
some of the free pamphlets
available at our office in the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center. If you have questions,
call us at 402-6545.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
July 10, 2000: Kiko
Vazquez threw a five-hitter
and went 5-for-5 with eight
RBIs to fuel Sebring's 25-4
rout of Avon Park in the 13-
year-olds' District 8 cham-
pionship game. .The day
before, Ryan Williams had
gone 3-for-3 to lead
Sebring to a 19-7 victory,
also over Avon Park.

10 Years Ago
July 10, 1995: Chris
Gordon struck out 16 in a
one-hit, 7-3 victory for
Avon Park's AAA all-stars in
Heartland Tournament
action. The only
Okeechobee single pushed
home two runners who had
walked in the third, and
another walk led to the third
run in the sixth.

playing at third, shortstop and center field
during his career. And for the first time,
the righty even saw time on the mound,
starting in seven games, striking out 25
bauers in 37 1/3 innings.
"Hle-had some-huge games pitching for

Dobson converted on all eight of his
steal attempts while scoring 16 times and
driving in 10 runs.
Taiwan Perry
Outfielder, Avon Park
The second of two Highlands County
players to hit over .400, Perry was the one
player Jackson said he never worried
about at the plate. Perry carried the Avon
Park offense on his shoulders, hitting .448
while leading the Devils in nearly every
category.
"I knew he could hit," Jackson said.
"All his uncles, brothers, all the Perrys
could hit. Coming into the season, I wasn't
too concerned with him. When runners
were in scoring position he was our man."
His family genes were definitely passed
down. Perry ripped one of two Avon Park
home runs, driving in 17 runs with a .627
slugging percentage and also threw out
nine runners from left field.
Johnny Sedlock
Pitcher, Avon Park
Sedlock became Avon Park's bona fide
ace early on. The lefty's 1.92 ERA led and
carried the team and he threw two shutouts
and four complete games throughout the
course of a sophomore season in which he
had to battle an injury to his pitching arm.
He was one of two players to start every
game of the season along with cousin,
Luke, who was his catcher.
"Very smart. Very intelligent pitcher,"

Jackson said. "And he was a pitcher, not a
thrower. I've had a lot of throwers,-but he
-was a pitcher. He did a really great job for
us."
Brandon Bierman
Pitcher, Lake Placid
One of Lake Placid's most reliable
pitchers, head coach Dan Coomes trusted
Bierman every time he handled the ball.
"There was never a time that he didn't
come to play," Coomes said of the senior.
"I've had him for three years and every

Special to the News-Sun
PORT ST. LUCIE It was almost a
clean sweep for Highlands County at the
Buick Scramble South Florida PGA
Sectional Championship on Thursday.
A team from Harder Hall Country
Club secured the net division crown
while Marathon's Sombrero Country
Club captured the gross division cham-
pionship in a sudden-death playoff over
a team from Sebring Golf Club to
advance to the Buick Scramble National
Championships in Orlando, Oct. 13-16.


The Harder Hall team of pro John
Vickers and amateurs Ken Poe Jr., Roger
Wright, Pat Dell and Laura Poe fired a
15-under-par 57 at the PGA Golf Club to
win the net division championship by
one stroke.
In the gross division, the Sebring Golf
Club family foursome of Rick, Harold,
Scott and Richard Hitt teamed with pro
Wheeler Smith to shoot a 14-under in
regulation and tie with the Sombrero
team of pro Clint Clement and amateurs
Chuck Moorman, Larry Thomas, Karen


Carter and Brian Botsford.
The Sombrero team birdied the sec-
ond playoff hole to win the title. The
Harder Hall and Sombrero teams will
compete against 212 teams at the nation-

Firemen golf

tourney will

use 2 courses

for 6th outing
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING One course
is not enough.
As it becomes one of the
most popular golf events in
Highlands County, the
Sixth Annual, Sebring
Firemen Memorial Golf
Tournament, presented by
AXA Advisors, will require
the use of both the Sebring
Golf Club and Harder Hall
courses this year.
According to Tommy
Lovett Sr., event chairman,
over 200 golfers have par-
ticipated in the last three
years, and, "When you try
to put that many people on
one golf course, it creates a
burden."
While the four-man
scramble, set for a shotgun
start at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 6,
now has two locations, the
singular focus remains the
same.
"People know what
Sebring Firemen stands
for," Lovett said.
"Everything that we bring
in, in some way, shape or
form, it goes right back to
the kids and our communi-
ty, and we've been doing
that for 70-plus years."
Last year, $20,000 was
raised for the Firemen's
various benefactors in
youth athletics, Lovett
said.
"A lot of guys throughout
the years have always been
driven with a desire to help
young people, and the way
we help our young people is

had already been delayed a
month due to weather-relat-
ed issues, will now have to
wait almost another two
months.
Set for Saturday. and
today at Harder Hall, the
tourney was postponed until
Sept. 3-4 due to Hurricane
Dennis.
The delay will have an
effect on the Highlands
County Ryder Cup matches
at Highlands Ridge North,
since the captain and co-
captain of the amateur team
are usually the Open and
Senior division winners of
the County Amateur.
Instead, the top 14 finish-
ers instead of 12 in
the amateur team qualifying
for the Ryder Cup set for
Saturday at Highlands
Ridge North will make the
team, Harder Hall pro John
Phillips said Saturday.
Those players will then
vote on who will be the
team leaders for the Ryder
Cup matches against the
pros July 23-24.

trying to provide them extra
dollars to give them things that
the school system can't give
them, or things that the local
leagues can't give them,"
Lovett said, "and the Firemen,
with our many things that we do
throughout the year, is a way
for us to provide them with bet-
ter equipment, better facilities,
etc."

game he comes out hard and
tries to play as hard as he can.
And he does the same thing in
practice as he does in games.
He's just a hard-nosed kid."
Bierman put up a'4-2 record,
striking out 18 over the course
of the season with an ERA dip-
ping to 2.86.
Alex Delgado
Outfielder, Lake Placid
A breakout year for Delgado
led to a red-hot start for the
Green Dragons in 2005. The-
junior had by far his best year
and helped carry his team to an
early 7-0 record, the best in the
history of the program. His
.356 batting average was a
direct byproduct of a few
adjustments in mechanics,
Coomes said.
"He's another guy that we
changed his hitting,;' he said:
"What we 'did was' wejput him
- on the program and he'just' -
took off from day one hitting
the ball and hitting the ball. He
has some pop and he'll drive
the ball."
Delgado also ripped through
the basepaths when he got on,
stealing nine bases and scoring
13 runs.
Steven Levine
Catcher, Lake Placid
A gritty catcher and team
MVP, Levine shined in virtual-
ly every point of the game,
blowing away all others in
Highlands County with a .479
batting average, which wasn't
surprising after he led the team
in hitting as a freshman two
years ago.
Now a junior, Levine led his
team in almost every statistical
category on the charts.
Seventeen of his 34 hits were .
doubles, all part of 24 runs
scored and 23 RBIs.
"None of his hits were easy
singles, either," Coomes said.
"He hit the ball hard every
time and maybe a half a dozen

He was no slouch behind the
plate either, compiling a field-
ing percentage of 99.
P.J. Milisci
Outfield/Pitcher, Lake Placid
Starting the season 4-0 on
the mound for the Dragons,
Milisci was Lake Placid's
MVP during the first half of
the season.
"Without him, we wouldn't
have gotten off to that good of
a start. And faced the toughest
teams. He faced their best stuff
and pitched great," Coomes
said.
Always somewhere in the
heart of the Dragon lineup,
Milisci stole 16 bases in his
senior season at Lake Placid,
banging out 29 hits, seven of
them doubles while hitting
.377.
"There's a lot that doesn't
get into stats that he did for
us," Coomes said. "He
deserved MVP. He played that
hard."
Eddie Peifer
Outfielder, Lake Placid
The Green Dragons' all-
around most athletic and versa-
tile player, according to
Coomes, Peifer had "a year
better than any year he's had.

every position' during the year.
"Probably, athletically, he
was the most athletic kid we
had," Coomes said. "Eddie
could steal bases; he was a
smart base runner.
"I could put him at shortstop
when I wanted, he could play
an outfield position and cover
it well. He could play any of
those positions and he was a
good, solid, fundamental play-
er. And I don't think there was
a single ball that he took a bad
angle on."
Chaz Abeln
Pitcher, Sebring
Named Sebring's Pitcher of
the Year for the second straight
season by head coach Hoppy
Rewis, the most common term
to describe Abeln's run as
Sebring's closer was lights-out.
"He's just been the most
consistent one we've had,"
Rewis raved about the sopho-
more. "He comes through
every time we have to have it.
I don't know if ice water in his
veins is the right thing, but
he'll go in there with the bases
loaded and it doesn't seem to
bother him."
. The righty was the blue and
white's go-to guy in relief for
the second year in a row, strik-
ing out 51 batters while walk-
ing only 14. Abeln led the team
in saves (five) and despite only
one appearance as a starter,
managed to eat up 47 1/3
innings, good for second-best
on the squad.
Rudy Levocz
Pitcher, Sebring
In his second start of the
season, at a time when pitching
was the biggest question for
the Streaks, Levocz answered
by tossing a complete game,
allowing two runs to Sebastian
River, the previous year's
champion of the Bill Jarrett
Early Bird Tournament in Avon
Park.
The tall, fastball-laden
hurler kept the pace, leading
Sebring to a team-high seven
wins while eating up 54 1/3
innings, the biggest chunk of
any pitcher.
"He's always pitched well
and he looked good the sum-
mer before," Rewis said. "He's
got a great arm and he lead us
in wins and towards the end of
the season he won some really
big games."
Opposing hitters where 28-

Some bass anglers have
been doing great on Lake
Istokpoga. I know I talk a lot
about Istokpoga, but I see a lot
of good-sized bass coming out
of the big lake.
I had a short visit with
Mabel Henderson. who owns
Henderson's Fish Camp on the
southwest side of the lake, on
Wednesday, and she told me
that the bluegill and shellcrack-
er fishing has been good, with
anglers bringing in large num-
bers of both. Also there have
been some large bass caught in
recent weeks by folks launch-
ing boats at the camp.
One 7-year-old youngster
caught a bass weighing more
than 7

worm. He

"" from

.. along his
father,
OUTDOORS Chris
__ Eastham,
Lloyd Jones and his
grandfa-
ther.
Neither his father or grandfa-
ther could top his catch.
Another bass angler, Gene
Manchette, was tossing a spin-
nerbait when a largemouth
bass decided it was just too
tempting. Gene's bass tipped
the scales at 12 pounds, 2
ounces. If I were Gene, I
would mount that spinnerbait.
Terry Trimble caught an
even larger bass while living at
the camp. Terry's prize bass
weighed in at 12 pounds, 7
ounces. That may be shy of a
record but, golly, that is a lot
of bass. Terry has been ill for a
while and, after an extended
stay in the hospital, had to
move away from the camp
because the dampness near the
lake was detrimental to his
health. Hope you are feeling
better, Terry.
This is a great time for those
spinnerbaits and top-water


ing only 15 runs throughout
the course of the season. .....
Levocz also carried Sebring on
his shoulder during the District
14-4A championship, tossing a
complete-game gem, allowing
one run to beat Lemon Bay in
Sebring's final win of the sea-
son.
Charlie Peck
Outfielder, Sebring
After spot-starting early in
the season, the sophomore
southpaw burst onto the scene
as Sebring's most consistent
left-handed hitter, driving
home the first runs of tfie game
four times during what was his
first year suited up with the
varsity. He placed fourth on the
team in batting average (.313),
hits (21) and RBIs (15).
"He works so hard as an
outfielder," Rewis said. "And
we're not completely sure we
have hir in the right position,
yet, ut lve knew he could hit
and we had to put him in the
lineup. Most of the kids onr the
(All-County) list, they're the
ones that come early andstay
late. Charlie just works so hard
and he'll stay at the fiell for-
ever."
I Colt Williams
Infielder, Sebring
One of three Sebring sopho-
mores to make the All-County
tean, Colt won the right to
play/ along side his older broth-
er, Ryan, by winning a position
battle at second base when the
season opened. He never
looked back, tying Vazquez for
second on the team in hits (27)
with four doubles and 14 RBIs.
"He had a great year for us,"
said Rewis. "He's just a great
athlete. He's gonna make some
plays that you can't believe
and he can do things with his
body that you just can't teach."
The righty was also the only
Streak other than Abeln to pick
up a save for Sebring in '05,
and closed the door in the
District 14-4A semifinals,
striking out two of three in the
seventh inning to beat Palmetto
Ridge and guarantee a spot in
the state playoffs.

lures. Of course, that plastic
worm is good anytime.
Chuggin' baits such as the
Chug Bug should be really
effective along with a popper
like the Pop R. Just throw
either of these baits to a likely
spot and let it lie there quietly
until the rings disappear, then
twitch it a couple of times,
causing it to chug or pop. You
should continue to twitch it as
you reel it slowly back to the
boat.
With this kind of fishing,
you see all the action as the
bass rises up and smashes your
bait. For just a minute, your
blood pressure zooms up and
you feel your heart pounding
like a race horse. It's a great
feeling, though it leaves you
panting as though you had run
a 100-yard dash.
ON.
Are, you ready for this, fel-
lows? It sounds as if the
women are about to shake up
the bass tournament trail. The
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
says that of the nearly 29 mil-
lion freshwater anglers in
America, 26 percent are
women. It is rather hard to
fathom that one out of four


bass anglers are female, but we
now have a women's profes-
sional bass anglers' group.
Starting in 2006, BASS will
launch a Women's Bassmaster
Tour to coincide with five
CITGO Bassmaster Tours. In
the five-event series, the
women will fish separately -
but in nearby waters and the
final-round weigh-ins on the
women's tour will be held on
the same stage as the men's
tour events. The tour will cul-
minate in the Women's
Bassmaster Championship in
February of 2007.
A preview event is sched-
uled for this October. Don
Rucks, general manager of
BASS, said the women's tour
will provide an outlet for the
many women anglers who
dream of fishing competitively.
I am anxious to see how this
turns out. A women's tour has
been tried before a couple
of times, in fact but both
fell apart due to a lack of spon-
sors. I really hope they succeed
with this latest effort.

The first fireworks of Independence Day


You probably slept
through the first fire- LAW
works on Indepen-
dence Day. Laur
No, I'm not talking
about those people who
will take any opportunity,
including Groundhog's Day,
Christmas, or Friday to set off
fireworks. These people are not
that concerned about it actually
being July 4th before they imi-
tate the rocket's red glare a
number of them live around
here.
I'm talking about NASA's
experiment, which involved
crashing an 830-pound probe
into a comet with the imagina-
tive name of Comet Tempel 1.
It just so happened that the
crash took place at 1:52 a.m.
EDT on July 4th -
Independence Day.
I watched a video a friend of
mine, a space buff, had linked
to on his blog. The video looks
quite impressive, even though it
is in black and white and has no
sound effects. As fireworks, it
would disappoint people who
like pretty colors and big
booms.


Editor:
While reading "letters to the
editor" in the Friday (July 8)
edition I almost lost my break-
fast.
I usually read them while
having my second cup of cof-
fee.
How anyone can carry as
much hate and venom for our
government and our country is
beyond me. There are probably
very few terrorists or terror
cells in Highlands County but
we surely have veterans, cur-
rent service people in Iraq or
Afghanistan, our local National
Guard and many who support
* our efforts against terror. .'
'The.war in Afghanisan and
Iraq is the continuation of a
conflict that began years ago
(much of it during the Clinton
era) with the first bombing of
the "Tower" in 1993, the
"Cole" bombing, the bombing
of the barracks in Lebanon and
Saudi Arabia and Thursday's
attacks in London.
The vitriolic attack in
Friday's paper gives hope to
the anarchists and those who
would destroy our democracy
here in the United States.
Without denigrating the
News-Sun, it is hoped such
muck will never get out of
Highlands County but those
who support such views would
be welcome in Havana. Could
we start a donation for air fare
to Cuba?

For the NASA peo-
S LOOK ple, it was awesome.
An article on the Web
Ware site www.space.com
W quotes a NASA work-
er as saying, "I can't
believe they're paying us to
have this much fun!" The
impact has given NASA people
a huge amount of data to play
with, and the article left me
with the impression that these
people were happier than a
bookworm in a bookstore with
unlimited funds.
So how do non-NASA peo-
ple look at this historical
moment? I may not be the best
person to ask, since I am a card-
carrying geek. Granted, I'm
talking about my library card,
but nevertheless I am close
enough to an interested party
that I probably could be called a
semi-NASA person.
As far as the average
American, my thought is that
their opinion is that they have
no opinion. They probably
don't care. This is especially
true of Florida and gulf coast
Americans, who are too busy
looking nervously out in the


oceans where Tropical Storm
Dennis is deciding where to
spend his weekend to look up
into the sky at a comet.
However, the impact did get
the attention of someone in the
world. Someone who respond-
ed in a way that we in this coun-
try find all too common when
something happens they
filed a lawsuit. I hasten to add
that this person does not live in
the United States, though it is
understandable that you would
think that at first.
No, the person filing this suit
is a Russian astrologer. Read
that carefully: This is not an
astronomer, someone who stud-
ies the heavens for science.
This lady is an astrologer, one
who studies the heavens and
then writes general, open-to-
interpretation "predictions" that
could apply to not only you, but
your pet.
According to an Associated
Press story the astrologer,
Marina Bai, has filed a lawsuit
in Moscow claiming that
NASA's crashing a probe into a
comet has ruined "the natural
balance of forces in the uni-


verse." She seeks damages of
$300 million, which by an
amazing coincidence is about
how much the project cost. Bai
claims that she has gone
through "moral sufferings" and
also apparently told a newspa-
per that the experiment
"deformed her horoscope."
You probably think I made
the previous paragraph up.
Trust me I'm good, but not
that good.
There will be a hearing in
Moscow at the end of the month
about the case. You have to
wonder how it will go. I would
be worried if the case was being
heard in say, California, where
the courts can and do make the
most outrageous decisions.
Moscow has perhaps not
descended to that level yet.
Just keep your ears open. I
suspect we'll learn of the case
being heard in court by the
deafening sound of Russian
laughter.

summertime and leave their
pets behind to fend for them-
selves, which usually means
they will succumb to disease,
starvation, get hit by cars, etc.
When this problem gets
brought up to the county com-
mission, their answer is to send
Animal Control out to trap as
many cats as possible.
However, extermination strate-
gies are often counter-produc-
tive as the felines that evade the
traps will quickly breed to fill
in the gap.
Last year Animal Control
euthanized 1,125 cats and kit-
tens and adopted out only three.
Even those heartbreaking num-
bers do not accurately reflect
the increasing number of stray
cats in Sebring, which has
grown astronomically in the
past two years.
We at Heartland Cat Rescue
are operating at full capacity, as
is the Humane Society and are
turning people away every day.
The only reasonable solution
is to stop the cycle by having
our county commission rein-
state the .-county's low-income
spay/neuter program for those
who cannot afford to have their
pets fixed.
They should also enact
responsible pet owner laws
requiring dogs and cats to be
spayed or neutered by six
months of age and make it ille-
gal to abandon animals in the
county. We should demand that
our law enforcement officers
and especially our judges
aggressively enforce these laws
with stiff fines and actual jail
sentences for offenders.
To quote a famous saying,
"The greatness of a nation and
its, moral progress can be
judged by the way its animals
are treated."

The latest slap in the face
from France. The following is
Standard Operating Procedure
for (a department store), a
"French owned corporation."
1. American veterans do not
meet store criteria for dona-
tions. A store refused to donate
for a remembrance ceremony
for the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial Wall.
2. A query to store U.S.-cor-
porate headquarters regarding
this store's policy resulted in a
like response. Veterans do not
meet our standards to receive
donations.
3. Stores will not allow
Salvation Army bell ringers to
work in front of their stores.
4. Stores will not ally United
States Marines to collect "Toys
For Tots" at any of their stores.
5. Stores do not allow fami-
lies of employees, who were
called up for active military
service, to continue their fami-
ly insurance coverage while
said employees performed mil-
itary duty.
Stores, however, do donate
to the following worthy causes:
the arts, social action groups
and gay and lesbian causes.
Where would France be today
if it were not for American WW
II veterans? If stores will not
support American military
causes, then as an ex-military
family, why should we pur-
chase goods at the stores?
Guess where all that profit
from the stores go? Yep! Right
over to France. I will say only

mystery
Girl Iwanna Impress: "So what
do you want to do?"
Daniel: "I have no clue. I just
picked it as a major because I was
looking at Bulletin one night and
realized I had a minor in it already
and I still wanted to take more
classes in it so, I figured why not?"
Girl Iwanna Impress: "Oh. Well,
I guess that is cool.
"Well, I have to go study for my
intro to volleyball class, see ya!"
Here is the great news though, it
doesn't matter!
Really, knowing what you want
to do right away in college, or a
year in, or two years in, or at all
isn't going to make or break you.
Look at it like this, you are still
young, hopefully you have no kids,
no one depending on you, basically
you can do whatever you want,
decide you don't want it and then
try something else.
Life right now is a big mystery!
But, here is the secret: A lot of life
will always be a mystery.
This is one of the best times of
life! All roads are open to us and
they are all mysterious.
Sure, that doesn't mean it is easy.
Every age in life has its challenges
and being young is no antidote to all
problems, but it is a time when it is
perfectly fine to be clueless and
content in that cluelessness.
Save all that major stressing for
when you have 10 kids, are getting
fat, have three car payments, a
house payments, credit card bills
and life has lost all mystery because
you know exactly what the next day
at work holds. Until then, enjoy
being young and lost.
Oh, and by the way, welcome to
the club, there is juice and crackers
in the back and nap time is at 3.

The journey's reason, Part 1


I am a traveler.
I am not a frequent
traveler (not by modern
standards), mainly
because I can't afford to
be.
I am a traveler --ti"
nonetheless and while it W e
might be presumptuous
of me to believe that my
travels are of any interest T1.
to you, I pray you will
humor me.
My tales, you see, might not enlighten or
even educate you, but perhaps they might
occasionally amuse you. That, I think,
could be worth a minute or two of your
valuable time.
Perhaps we should begin with a reason,
for all journeys must begin with purpose;
without a purpose, one is not traveling, but
merely wandering. Not that there is any-
thing wrong with that. But in this particular
case, the reason of my first travels was
simple: I wished to leave my motherland.
My land, which I think deserves at least
a whole paragraph, is a small island some
90 miles south of .Florida shaped roughly
like a sleeping alligator. Once upon a time,
Spanish "conquistadors" who thought they
had discovered it, named it "Juana". The
name did not stick, for obvious reason and
so today it is known by the indigenous
name, Cuba. Lucky break, I'd say,. for
smoking a Juanito Cigar would probably
not sound quite as cool and sophisticated.
If you know anything about Cuba, you
already know the reason of my hasty
departure. If you don't know anything
about Cuba, I'm afraid you will not learn
much today. You see, although I spent the
first eight years of my life in Cuba, I can't
really say that anything terribly exciting
happened in that time. However, for the
sake of background-giving, I will go over a
few basics.
When I was a child, we lived in what
was essentially a glorified walk-in closet.
We didn't have our own house. We didn't
even have our own apartment. We actually
had the behind side of the bottom floor of


/


Someone else's house
with a lovely view of
their backyard and the
7 railroad tracks right
7 behind the property.
The entire place con-
sisted of one bedroom, a
small bathroom and an
tf even smaller kitchen. I
e believe we had a refriger-
ator, which was a luxury
Ari Salgueiro even if it was older than
most buildings in Florida.
We also had a black and white television
set with our choice of two channels; and
that was the premium package. Of course,
when the presidentt" was speaking, both
channels showed the exact same thing. If
we were lucky, we could choose between
two different camera angles of his face.
Such was the quality of our program-
ming that my favorite TV spot was govern-
ment propaganda advertisement which fea-
tured a few precious frames of the movie
Superman (yes, the original one).
Sometimes I would run to my cousin's
house so I could see it in full color in the
two-and-a.-half-inch screen TV Such were
the ways of our entertainment.
Perhaps I have digressed, but if you will
humor me again next month, I shall return
with the conclusion of my purpose and the
beginning of my journey. Until then, I
thank you for your priceless attention.
