County doing


warrant study



on Scenic



Highway signal
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Right now, Highlands County officials are
working with Progress Energy to put overhead lighting on
Sebring Parkway at the 90-degree turn and the intersection with
Scenic Highway.
Whether or not Sebring Parkway will get a traffic signal at
Scenic Highway as well will have a lot to do with results of a
study.
County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete told members of the
Highlands County Community Traffic Safety Team Wednesday
that his office has a pretty good database in his office on crash-
es. He looked at the Parkway six months after it opened in
2002, and again at the three-year mark.
Right now, there is no signal. Ninety percent of crashes at the
two intersections in question take place during the day, when
visibility should be at its best.

Progress made in Snob


Hollow as new replaces old

SEBRING -Roseann
Kiefer is sunburned and sweat
soaked; exhausted and excited
all at once.
That's because the concrete
slab and first floor walls of her
new home are now in place,
going up where her lakefront,
World War II vintage house
once stood.
That house, at 1509 Crescent
Drive, had to be demolished
June 22 when it cracked and
sagged due to an unsound foun-
dation. Crescent Drive, known
as Snob Hollow, runs along
Lake Jackson.
Organic muck, dredged from
Lake Jackson, had been used as ,,
fill. Over the decades, it had
dried and compacted causing
the irreparable damage.
Kiefer's excitement extends
beyond the building's progress,
however, because she is replac-
ing retro with cutting edge.
The first floor of her home is
being built using insulating
concrete forms. The second
floor and third floor master bed-
room/bath will be prefabricated

SThe modular sections are tra-
ditional in their design; it's the ..
first floor construction that's

Sheriff asks for


speed study on


U.S. 27 to aid


enforcement
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Enforcing the speed limit on U.S. 27 can get
somewhat tricky through and around Sebring.
At points where the speed limit drops 5 mph, then drops
again in less than a mile stretch, it's hard for an officer to write
a ticket. Either the driver was disobeying the limit or merely
slowing down for it, said Deputy Sheriff J.P. Fane at
Wednesday's Community Traffic Safety Team meeting.
Florida highway speed limits get set using the premise that
85 percent of drivers travel at reasonably safe, comfortable
speeds for the roadway conditions, regardless of posted speed
limits. Speed limit signs are then set according to these the
"85th percentile."
Then, traffic enforcement is only catching those people who
pose a danger.
That's great, said Fane and Sheriff Susan Benton, however
the limits change too quickly in the commercial section of U.S.
27 between the Sebring Parkway and Schumacher Road and
the Highlands Avenue intersection.
Deputies don't have enough distance to set up and turn
around, Benton told Debra Stallings, with the Florida
Department of Transportation.
"We don't get the need for a 5 mph difference." Benton said.
"Why every quarter mile? Can you do some larger segments?"
The reason why the speed limits are where they are now,
County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete said, is because county
officials asked for a speed study in the past. It lowered the
speed limit on some sections and kept it at highway speed for
others.
Stallings said she could take the request back to the District
I office in Bartow, but it could make the speed limits higher in
places and significantly lower in others.
"That's why I tell people to he careful what they wish for,"
she said.

Avon Park to look at the issue of dual taxation


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK It was a
topic broached by the city of
Avon Park nearly a quarter cen-
tury ago. Now, it is coming up
again.
It is the issue of dual taxa-
tion.
Back in 1981, Avon Park
City council members wrote
Highlands County
Commissioners saying they had
identified county services
"which provided no real and
substantial benefit to residents
or property within the city of
Avon Park."
And because they were
financed with ad valorem and


other countywide revenue it
was the city's opinion that con-
stituted dual taxation.
In the end, county commis-
sioners agreed to provide the
city with some materials and in-
kind services to offset the mon-
eys in question.
Now Mayor Tom Macklin
wants to address the issue
again. It came up in a public
session earlier this month dur-
ing a daylong budget session.
"General fund revenues of
the county should not be used to
fund the sheriff's road patrol
because that is only a benefit to
the unincorporated areas of the
county," he said. "The cities
provide their own patrol servic-


es and we pay for those through
our own general fund revenue."
Macklin said residents of the
municipalities should not have
to pay for the patrols that occur
outside the city limits.
Instead, he would rather see
county commissioners enact a
municipal services taxing unit
to pay for that service a fee
that would be levied only on
those in the unincorporated
areas of the county.
The mayor has asked city
staff to draft a letter to that
effect and have it ready for
presentation at the next city
council meeting so that the
board might see it and have a
full discussion of the issue.


"We asked our staff to take
the 1981 resolution and make it
applicable to today's world," he
said.
Macklin pointed out that a
Florida Supreme Court ruling
which found a prohibition to
extend "facilities and services
which are of no real use" to res-
idents of a municipality is still
in effect and that Florida Statute
125.01 which provides proce-
dures for a municipality to peti-
tion the county commission
also is valid, paving the way for
a council action.
"They need to fund services
that only unincorporated areas
enjoy, not with general fund
revenue but with an MSTU or


something like it," he said.
That letter might represent
just the tip of the iceberg.
Macklin said there could be
other areas of county spending
that also might be addressed in
a similar fashion, such as the
county's code enforcement unit,
the planning and zoning opera-
tion and the building depart-
ment among others.
"They too, basically deal
with the unincorporated areas
of the county," he said.
Macklin was unsure as to
whether or not, those items
might also be included in the
pending letter as the issue has
not yet come before the city
council.


The issue came up in reverse
in Alachua County, where the
sheriff's office there wanted to
charge some of the smaller
municipalities that did not have
police departments for road
patrols in their areas.
At the time, Sheriff Steve
Oelrich pointed out his depart-
ment had handled 10,000 calls
in the city of Gainesville, which
has its own police department.
He noted that unincorporated
areas paid for the deputies that
were dispatched to the calls and
said it was "even more egre-
gious" when the city had no
police department of its own
and deputies were used for their
law enforcement needs.

Ford to sponsor second



Sport Aviation Expo


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The Southern
Ford Dealers have decided to
serve as name and title sponsor
for the U.S. Sport Aviation
Expo, Oct. 27-30.
Expo Chairman Bob Wood
said when he went to Bill Jarrett
of Bill Jarrett Ford-Mercury in
Avon Park to ask him to help
sponsor the event as he did last
year, Jarrett offered to get the
Southern Ford Dealers to be the
name sponsor.
After a short meeting with
them and Mike Willingham,
executive director of the
Sebring Airport Authority, it
was set. This is the second year
for the light sport aircraft expo-
sition at the Sebring Regional
Airport.
The expo is designed to pro-
mote light sport aviation, the
sport pilot certificate and to
contribute to the economic
development of our community.
"While the financial support
we have from this relationship
is quite important to us, of
equal importance is having a
relationship with such a profes-
sional organization," Wood
said.
Ford Motor Company had
involvement in aviation in the
early days as a manufacturer of
airplanes. Since then, the com-
pany has continued to be
involved, and, more recently by
major sponsorship of such
events as AirVenture, the
largest aviation event in the
United States, held each year at
Oshkosh, Wis.
Wood plans to go to that
event with a booth to lure more
exhibitors to the Sebring venue.

Right now, with such a success-
ful first year, the expo has 85
percent of its 75 spaces filled.
Companies with two spaces
last year have asked for four.
Typically, two sport aviation
craft can fit into.one exhibition
space; five can fit into two.
Some of the companies are
powered-parachutes. Some are
weight-shift craft. One, Wood
said, is an autogyro.
"It's larger than last year,"
Wood said. "We expect a bigger
crowd."
Learning lessons from last
year, event organizers have
reconfigured the space on the
tarmac to plut 14 more booths
up front, near the entrance.
The improved setup was out-
lined on the Internet, as well as
promoted at Lakeland's Sun 'N

Fun Fly-in. Once companies
saw the setup, several wanted to
upgrade to the front. They
include Air Creation, CGS
Aviation, Hansen Air Group,
Just Aircraft, Lockwood
Aviation, Orlando Sanford
Aircraft Sales, Titan Aircraft,
and Wicks Aircraft Supply.
Another improvement was
showers. Many exhibitors came
in recreational vehicles. Wood
has talked to officials at the
Sebring International Raceway
about possibly opening facili-
ties for them or helping get
rental showers, perhaps from
Anderson Rentals out of
Gainesville.
Also, Wood plans to have
handicapped parking on pave-
ment this year.

Stewart is confident Taylor
will make adjustments in
restoration plans accordingly.
He called it a mis-communica-
tion on both their parts.
"We definitely want to work
tightly with the preservation
committee and are going to,"
Perry said.
The confusion continued
about Harder Hall's qualifica-
tion for tax credit. Questions
were raised surrounding
whether part two of the tax
credit application was either not
filled out or not submitted.
Stewart said they will review


Town get


the status and hash out the pro-
cedure to correct it.
Then there were discrepan-
cies about what restorations
need to be done to qualify
Harder Hall as a historical site.
Some commissioners said it
was just the outside and certain
public areas. Others wanted the
majority of the hotel to retain its
authenticity.
"I want to see Harder Hall
restored to be Harder Hall,"
Puckett said. "I don't want it to
be a new hotel."
Commissioners discussed a
three-door entrance instead of


s FRDAP


one, moving the front desk to
the front of the lobby and the
banquet room.
Puckett felt the banquet room
was the biggest non-compliance
with the appropriateness certifi-
cate. He said the certificate did
not allow for any renovation to
that room, just restoration.
Taylor said his renovations
didn't include stripping out the
pecky cypress wood paneling.
Instead he covered what was
there, because he said pecky
cypress was expensive to
replace.


grants


to improve Lake June Park


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The town
of Lake Placid has received two
$200,000 grants through the
Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program, which is administered
by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
Division of Parks and
creationo.
The $400,000 isn't money in
* the hand, emphasized town
Public Works Director Jim
Fulton. It reflects the total
amount that the state will reim-
burse the town for the cost of
performing certain kinds of
work at Lake June Park.
"They don't give you
$400,000," Fulton said. "You
spend the money, and they
reimburse you afterwards."
Basically, Fulton explained,
when town applied for the
FRDAP grants, it asked to make
specific improvements to the
park such as bringing in new
playground equipment, build-
ing a fishing pier, constructing a
new concession area, renovat-
ing a restroom, and building a
new baseball field and soccer
field.
Now that the grant applica-
tions have been approved, the
town can go ahead with the
work. Once it demonstrates the
new facilities have been com-
pleted, it will be reimbursed for
the costs.
For example, the first grant,
called Grant V, gives the town


up to $135,000 to spend on
building a new baseball field, a.
soccer field, a playground and a
fishing pier. The remaining
$65,000 is to pay for a new
parking area, constructing a
new. concession stand or rest-
room, and renovating one exist-
ing restroom.
The second grant, called
Grant VI, will pay up to
S$125.000 for a ne%% T-ball fi L
'"a playground, a soccer field and
a handball court. It provides_-
another $75,000 for a new park-
ing area and a restroom or con-
cession stand.
The money set aside for the
new playground, for example,
will be used to expand the exist-
ing playground and bring in
new equipment.
"We're not going to be build-
ing playgrounds all over the


* Board Certified

* Board Certified
Geriatric Medic


park," Fulton said.
But if one element is com-
pleted below the cost specified
in the grant, the town will get
the flexibility of shuffling the
excess money to another job the
grant covers.
"The money's there to be
used, and it's there to be used
for recreation," Fulton said.
The first challenge is com-
pleting the preparatorN work,
such as clearing land 0to maki
,,way for the new playing fields.
That cost isn't covered by the
grant, but Fulton thinks the
town can get much of this done
with in-kind services, such as
the use of volunteer labor and
equipment on loan from the
county.
"We have the land to do a lot
of this on," Fulton said.
"However, the land is raw."

Dressel

charged with

meth
possession
AVON PARK When
police saw a couple of people
near a closed auto sales lot,
they stopped to investigate.
They ended up arresting
Kathleen Gray Dressel, 46, of
Sebring, for possession of
methamphetamine and pos-
session of drug paraphernalia.
Bail was set at $1,500.
At 4:30 p.m. Saturday, July
2, Avon Park police saw
Dressel and a friend of hers
walking out from behind a
used car lot on U.S. 27. The
business was closed.
Suspecting a possible bur-
glary, the officer investigated.
They said they had been to
visit the owner, but no one
answered the door or the
phone numbers they gave to
the officer.
The officer asked to search
them, and the two women
became irate, reports said.
When he told them it was for
illegal weapons or narcotics,
Dressel turned out her pock-
ets, but allegedly concealed a
folded piece of aluminum foil
in her hand.
, Allegedly, she tried to put
it in her purse without him
seeing it.
He placed her in hand
restraints, because she tried to
conceal the contents of her
purse, then retrieved the foil.
It had a burnt residue, reports

and inhaled methampheta-
mine.
In addition, she had several
other pieces of aluminum foil
in her purse, reports said, and
a small bag of an off-white
crystal substance that field-

phetamine.
The officer also found a
drinking straw with residue
on it, cigarette lighters, and a
small blue pill with the
inscription scratched off.

Serrano

charged with

buying cocaine
LAKE PLACID At 5:22
p.m. June 15, a 1999 Ford
truck drove up to an under-
cover officer posing as a
street-level drug dealer in
Highway Park.
The driver Ricardo
Serrano, 20, of Orlando -
allegedly approached and
bought a piece of crack for
$10.
Immediately after the pur-
chase, Highlands County
sheriff's deputies arrested
him, but did not recover the
crack, arrest reports said.
They did find less than a
gram of cannabis and a glass
smoking pipe commonly used
to smoke crack cocaine, arrest
reports said.
On Saturday, July 2,
Serrano was charged with
purchase of cocaine, posses-

After investigating, they
ended up making two drug

At 2:22 a.m. Wednesday,
July 13, Avon Park police
saw a blue Pontiac parked
behind a dumpster behind a
laundromat on North Prospect
Avenue. Parking spaces were
available in front of the build-

there had been burglaries in
the area recently, so the offi-

The officer pulled his

cer arrested her for public
consumption of alcohol.
While searching her purse,
the officer found a white tube
with a bowl shape on one end
and a black residue inside the
tube.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, she told the

her bedroom earlier that day,
and took it to throw it away.
She said she did not know
who it belonged to.
The residue field-tested
positive for methampheta-

News-Sun. Sunday, July 17, 2005 5A


And the 'F' goes ...


Council wants another look at


design, development ordinances


Two local teachers


Special to the News-Sun
The Endeavour Academy
partnered with Zero Gravity
Corporation to launch a new
program called Florida's Zero-
G Experience for Teachers.
Conducted by the Academy and
ZERO-G's Learning Labora-
tory, which secured additional
support from the Florida Space'
Grant Consortium, the program
is the first of its kind in the
nation to bring teachers into
weightless environments in
order to enhance rpath and sci-
ence curriculum development.
Under the program, 15
Florida teachers, including Hill-
Gustat Middle School's Cathy
Hardesty and Susan Harris, par-
ticipated in a 90- to 100-minute
flight aboard ZERO-G's G-
FORCE ONE aircraft, a spe-
cially modified Boeing 727, on
Saturday.
The pilot performed a series
of parabolic maneuvers that,
will take the aircraft between
24,000 and 34,000 feet in alti-
tude to achieve periods of
weightlessness. During these'
periods, a ZERO-G Learning,
Laboratory instructor helped
the teachers perform experi-
ments, which were videotaped,
enabling the teachers to use it as
a visual presentation tool when
they return to the classroom and
integrate their findings into the
curriculum. In all, the teachers
logged approximately 10 min-
utes of weightless time.
"Florida's Zero-G Experi-
ence for Teachers program rep-
resents the first flight of educa-
tors to fly with our company as
part of a curriculum-based
team," said Peter Diamand's,
founder and chief executive
officer of ZERO-G. "We are
thrilled to partner with The
Endeavour Academy to help.
give educators a once-in-a-life-
time opportunity that they will
be able to pass on to their stu-
dents and inspire within them a
new passion for science and
technology."
The inaugural flight of
Florida's Zero-G Experience
for Teachers was set for
Saturday, the anniversary of the
launch of Apollo 11, near Fort
Lauderdale at the ZERO-G
headquarters.
Teachers will prepared for
their mission by participating in


a pre-flight workshop front
June 25-26 at the NASA-
Kennedy Space Center's
Education Resource Center at
the Center for Space Education.
During the workshop, KSC
Education Resource Center per-
sonnel guided teachers through
ground training and helped
them study microgravity in
lunar and Martian environ-
ments. The teachers also wrote
curriculum and design their in-
flight experiments.
"Florida and the nation are at
a point in aerospace history
where the significance of teach-
ers demonstrating aerospace
concepts and the excitement
that science, technology, engi-
neering and mathematics can
provide to their students cannot
be overstated," said Michelle
Peters, director of The
Endeavour Academy. "Florida's
Zero-G Experience for
Teachers brings science and the
excitement of space to K-12
education. Participating teach-
efs-and their students will per-
' snally experience the science
a~W' teAhnology behind the
world of aerospace. We hope
this will spark students' desire
to embark on future careers
within the aerospace industry."
The academy assessed the
eflectiveness of the program by
examining how the teachers
creatively integrated the pro-
gram into their own classroom
studies, as well as the extent
they pass on their curriculum to
fellow educators. In addition,
participating teachers can con-
tact The Endeavour Academy
or the Microgravity workshop
instructors at any time follow-
ing their flight to receive addi-
tional guidance on how to inte-
grate their microgravity experi-
ence into curriculum.
"Since not every teacher will
get this unique opportunity to
study in a microgravity envi-
ronment, a big part of our goal
with Florida's Zero-G
Experience for Teachers is to
have teachers share their expe-
rience with their colleagues so
that we can reach more students
and make an even greater
impact on their science and
math studies," Peters said.
Teachers were selected by a
review committee based on
essays that described how they


soar high
would use the experience to
benefit students and other
teachers. The 15 teachers
selected to participate in the
launch of Florida's Zero-G
Experience for Teachers includ-
ed educators from elementary,
junior high and high schools
throughout Florida.
Florida's Zero-G Experience
for Teachers is being funded
through The Endeavour
Academy, which contributed
$66,000, as well as through
$12,500 grant from the Florida
Space Grant Consortium.
The academy is already
working on a second flight for
Florida teachers with ZERO-G.
The academy is a partner in a
$1.2 million Math Science
Partnership grant in southwest
Florida that will give 50 teach-
ers in this region the opportuni-
ty to experience the program
via a flight on Nov. 5.
"We are continually seeking
opportunities to partner with
other entities on grants that will
enable us to extend this unique:
form of teacher professional
development to even more edu-
cators throughout the state,"
Peters said.
The Florida's Zero-G
Experience for Teachers marks
the inauguration of The ZERO-
G Learning Laboratory, which
is the first and only private pro-
gram in the world that can bring
teachers and students into
microgravity. The company's
ZERO-G Learning Laboratory
works with organizations
nationwide to develop pro-
grams that incorporate weight-
less flights for educator and stu-
dents.


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Because
the Lake Placid Town Council
wants to hash out concerns it
has with two ordinances deal-
ing with development and
building design issues, it has
decided to review them again at
its Aug. 8 meeting rather than
take action on them Monday
night.
One of the ordinances. 2005
431, prohibits "big box" stores
from being constructed in the
town limits. The other, 2005-
463, sets architectural' design
standards for new construction.
Monday's review was the
second public hearing on the
ordinances. It would also have
been the final one if they had
they not been pushed back to
August.
Ordinance 2005-431 defines
a big box store as any building
in excess of 50,000 square feet
devoted to retail or commercial
use. It prohibits any store from
being larger than 100,000
square feet.
The purpose of the new code
is to prohibit large retailers -
like Wal-Mart from building
stores in town.
Zoning Director Jim LaRue
suggested the language created
a loophole for some big box
outlets, who could claim that
they were wholesalers and not
retailers.
Councilwoman Debra
Worley wanted to make the dis-
tinction between one large sin-
gle retail store and any large
building, such as those that
would be built in an industrial
park.

Food distribution

begins Monday
Highlands County Human
Services will begin its monthly
food distribution on Monday
for all eligible Highlands
County residents.
Items to be distributed are
salmon, green beans, peaches,
drid beans, pudding, peanut
butter, walnuts and juice. Food
will be distributed Monday
through Thursday from 8 a.m.
until 1 p.m. thru July 28, or
until the supply is exhausted.
Families may qualify based
on gross household income.
Additionally, anyone who is
eligible for public housing,
food stamps, Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families,
Supplemental Security Income,
or Medicaid is automatically
eligible.
Human Services is in the
Health Department Building,
7205 S. George Blvd., Sebring.


Councilman Jim Waller had
his own concerns. He didn't
want to discourage large shop-
ping centers like a Publix
Supermarket from building
in town. He thought the ordi-
nance should make provisions
for shopping plazas that typi-
cally consist of one large gro-
cery store and the multiple
small business spaces a devel
opment company is leasing.
Town Attorney Bert J. Harris
111 questioned whether prohibit-
ing big box stores would have
any tangible value for Lake
Placid, if the county chose to
allow them to be built just out-
side of the city limits.
Design standards
Ordinance 2005-463, the
town's new code for commer-
cial design standards, was
tabled due to an excess of
changes.
The code governs the appear-
ance of commercial buildings
by regulating everything from
the facade and roof to the exte-
rior color and the height of the


ceilings.
LaRue said the new ordi-
nance will complicate the
town's process of reviewing
site plans. In some cases, an
architect may need to look at
the plans and determine
whether a proposed new build-
ing would be consistent with
the code.
Iarrnis wanted to know who
would be responsible for mak-
ing suie the buildings were con-
structed according to the code.
He suggested using the county
building department for that
purpose, while LaRue said the
town's own code enforcement
officer could be trained to do
the job.
In any case, LaRue said
someone needed to make sure
the buildings were in compli-
ance before the county issued a
certificate of occupancy.
"By the time someone puts a
building together and they
haven't done something they
were supposed to do, you're in
a world of hurt," LaRue said.

Rick Whidden, a zoning con-

Losas, said 46 residents in the
area were sent letters asking
whether they approved or dis-
approved of the new business.
None responded, he said, lead-
ing him to 'conclude than none
objected to it.
"This is not a high volume
area," Whidden said. "This
would be a neighborhood
friendly business."
The council tabled a request
from Amanda Acosta to rezone
four vacant lots in Serenity
Village from R-2, or multi-fam-
ily residential, to C-2, or com-
mercial general. The lots are
grouped together at the comer
of Lake Rachard Drive and
Park Avenue and identified as
99 Lake Rachard Drive.
Zoning Director Jim LaRue
said the Local Planning Agency
denied Acosta's request
because it thought the commer-
cial general zoning would be
out-of-step with the residential
neighborhood. LPA members
were also concerned that Acosta
has no plans to develop the lots
\but wants to sell them as com-
mercial rather than residential
property.

"We visited Mt. Vernon
where Washington himself
lived. Once inside the home, we
saw the tombs of George and
Martha Washington.
"We also went to the
Arlington National Cemetery
where John F. Kennedy was
buried with a single white
wooden cross. There were
white headstones that seemed
to go on forever.
"Seeing the eternal flame and
watching the changing of the
guards at the, Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier gave me
chills. Our timing was perfect
and a guard came out and spoke
to us, informing us about all of
the preparation and inspection
that took place when the guards
changed.
"On one of the days of our
six-day trip, we went to a mili-
tary parade at the Iwo Jima
Memorial. We also visited sev-
eral museums such as the
National History Museum, the
Spy Museum and the Air and
Space Museum. In addition to,
visiting museums and monu-
ments, we had two dances; one
was on a boat cruise on the
Potomac River.
"Curfew in our hotel was 11
p.m., but believe me, we didn't
need a curfew. We were going
from 5:30 in the morning until
10:30 each night. When we
returned to the hotel, we just
fell into bed.
As you can tell we did a lot
of great stuff while we were
there. It truly was a trip of a
lifetime. I would have never
had this experience if it wasn't
for Glades Electric.
"Visiting the monuments,
museums and government
buildings, as well as meeting
some of our elected officials
were a valuable learning experi-
ence. It was an experience of a
lifetime."

The LPA recommended that
Acosta seek a zoning change to
C-2-A, or residential office,
which would allow for a less
intensive commercial use than
C-2. For example, offices that
double as private residences can
be built in C-2-A. Shopping
centers can be built in C-2 but
not C-2-A.
Acosta arrived at the LPA
meeting after the agency had
ruled on her request, LaRue
said, but he discussed the deci-
sions and her options with her.
The council was inclined to
follow the LPA's recommenda-
tion by changing the zoning to
C-2-A rather than C-2.
However, Acosta also did not
attend the council's meeting,
and so the council members did
not know whether the less-
intensive zoning would be
acceptable to her.
Town Attorney Bert J. Harrn-is
III was reluctant to let the coun-
cil make the change .to C-2-A
zoning, since that was not what
Acosta requested in her applica-
tion for the zoning change.
LaRue agreed to contact
Acosta one more time and ask'
her to attend the council's next
meeting.

power in Weimar, Germany,
the show depicts the interlock-
ing stories of a cabaret singer,
a writer from America, and
the denizens of Berlin, all
caught up in the swirling
maelstrom of a changing soci-
ety. It's about people dancing
on the edge of a cliff and not
quite falling over.

police talked with a couple in a

both of Avon Park, and charged
them each with possession of

Out of eight crashes at the
Sebring Parkway and Scenic
Highway intersection, there
were no fatalities. Officially,
it's not a crash problem. Rick
Weigand, Emergency Medical
Services director, confirmed
that his office has not had very
many calls there.

them, and reinforcing wire run-
ning between them. They fit
together like giant, hollow
Legos.
While overly simplified, at
this stage in construction, the
house resembles a large ice
chest. Only hotter.
Despite openings where
doors and windows will go, and
no roof, the insulating proper-
ties of the walls already hold in
the heat. Large, industrial fans
had to be set up to make work
possible.
The company that makes the
product, guarantees at least a 33
percent savings in energy costs.
Kiefer's home has an insula-
tion rating of R-50 for the first
floor.
With the forms in place,
braced by lumber, electrical
conduit and water pipes are
threaded through, then concrete
is poured into the cavity. Once
that sets, the lumber bracing is
removed. The nine-foot high
wall that remains is rock solid,
resistant to 200 miles per hour
of wind sheer.
The work is a family, neigh-
borhood affair. Kiefer's brother,
Daniel, a home developer and


methamphetamine and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia.
Bail for each was set at
$1,500.
When police were talking to
the couple, they asked Selph if
they could search the car, and
he said yes, according to arrest
reports.
They found a clear plastic
tube in the center console, clos-


storms and hurricanes, instead
of traffic lights suspended on a
cable. That means putting up a
new signal will cost $100,000,
Gavarrete said.
The county maintains the
Parkway and Scenic Highway,
so capital improvements would
be the county's responsibility.
Several property owners in
the area have asked to rezone
from agriculture orange
groves to either residential,
or in some cases, commercial
development.
If a warrant analysis shows
the county needs a signal there,
Gavarrete would look at having
any developers in the area help-


general contractor, traveled
down from Michigan to oversee
construction. He brought his
wife, Melanie, and son, Nathan,
also a contractor, with him to
help with the work.
Kiefer's next door neighbor,
Terry Mendel, gave her access
to electricity after the tempo-
rary power pole was accidental-
ly knocked down, and supplies
the workers with cold drinks.
Kiefer's across-the-street
neighbor, Don Wright, of Don
Wright Construction, has kept
the group supplied with tools
and lent his hand as well.
Several other friends of the
family also have given many
hours of free labor.
"We're so grateful. We
couldn't have done it without
them," Kiefer said.
And everyone's been work-
ing hard. Once sand was
brought in to raise the elevation
and stabilize the foundation,
and the concrete pad was
poured, the first floor walls
Went up in a week's time. Last
Wednesday, the 2,000-pound I
beam, which will support the
upper floors, was lifted into
place.
The crew has been working
14-hour days because Kiefer's
brother, sister-in-law, and
nephew had taken time from


est to the driver's seat. It had a
burnt end with a hole burnt
through that end.
Residue inside the tube field-
tested positive for methamphet-
amine, reports said.

Selph couldn't, tell police
where the pipe came from.
When police searched
Howard, they found a clear


ing to share the cost. It's part of
a county requirement that
developers help pay for road
improvements their projects
create.
A lot of developers are get-
ting annexed into the Sebring
city limits, but Gavarrete said
the county works with the city,
so those requirements are usual-
ly part of the city requirements,
too.
Speed
Sheriff Susan Benton wants
to know if the varying speeds
on either side of the intersection
might contribute to wrecks
there. Westbound traffic has 55


their own work to help her out,
and needed to get back home.
They wanted to get the first
floor finished before they left.
By starting at 7:30 a.m. and
working until 9:30 p.m., they
met their goal in five days.
Kiefer, owner of Lampe &
Kiefer Hearing Aid Center in
Sebring, took time off work to
assist her family in the project.
"I just hope my customers will
bare with me in the next few
months," she said.
The project is moving along
rather quickly. "The women
have been the mules," Kiefer
said. They put up the bracing
and then tore it down, and did
most of the drilling, attaching
steel ties to the embedded fur-
ring strips. The ties will be used
to secure the outside vinyl sid-
ing, and the inside dry wall.
For now, work will pause for
about a month, until Kiefer's
family can return to finish it up.
The modular components will
be installed by the company
that made them, so that phase
will be easier on everyone.
Even given the pauses,
Kiefer said she should be able
to move in in time for
Thanksgiving.
If she does, it will be a very
thankful holiday season.

Eastbourid motorists have 45
mph until just east of Scenic
Highway.
One side is accelerating and
the other is decelerating.
Gavarrete said both speed
limits should change at
Covington Road west of the
intersection. It's possible the
signs got moved after being
knocked down by motorists or
mowers.
The road also makes a south-
ward jog at Covington Road.
Some motorists may find it dif-
ficult to see eastbound traffic or
judge its speed of because of
that curve.


Sebring off Lake Jackson-. The

This is one of the form sections
used to build Roseann Kiefer's
house on Crescent Drive in
Sebring off Lake Jackson. The
outer and inner wall are made
of Styrofoam and have metal
furring strips embedded in them
on each side. Once in place, with
electrical conduit and water
pipes threaded through, they
are filled with concrete. The fur-
ring strips are securely attached
to welded steel ties every 12
inches, which secures vinyl sid-
ing on the outside, and dry wall
on the inside.

roadway and overcorrected,


causing that vehicle to rotate in
a counterclockwise manner into
the oncoming lane directly in
the path of Haines. Haines col-
lided into the right side of the
car with the front of his van.
After impact, the car over-
turned and came to rest on its
left side. Haines' van stopped
on the east shoulder of
Memorial Drive.
Both drivers were wearing
their seat belts. Charges are
pending until further investiga-
tion.

Con artists, hustlers and
financial predators charm, lie,
and manipulate their way
through life.
To most people the word
psychopath brings up images
of characters like Hannibal
Lechter the caged murderer
played by Anthony Hopkins in
the movie "Silence of the
Lambs." However, white col-
lar crooks who sell phony
investments, pull loan scams,
or commit other devious finan-

same ant-social behaviors as
violent psychopathic criminals.
Here are some personality
traits of people with antisocial
personality disorders.
A psychopath or sociopath
is someone who manifests
aggressive, perverted, criminal
or amoral behavior without
empathy or remorse. While
criminal activity is not a nec-
essary requirement for the
diagnosis, psychopaths often
run into .egal difficulties
because of their disregard for
societal standards and the
rights of others. Many
sociopaths wind up in prison.

Binkee for Babies


Shipley 's


invention


B..> .
pacifies kids


and parents


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Donald R,
Shipley Jr. is an inventor with a
soft Carolina drawl who's hop-
ing his dream will come true.
Shipley is single and present-
ly lives in
Sebring. While
he awaits a
manufacturer
for his inven-
tion, he's roof- 1
ing the area's
buildings dam-
aged during
last year's hur-
ricanes.
"I was stay- .
ing with my
brother and sis-
ter-in-law who
have three SUEANNCA
young sons. I Donald R. Shipl
saw that it is of the Binkee pa
hard to keep up
with three
kids, making sure they're happy
whether you're in a car, in a
house, or outside. So I devel-
oped the Binkee. It's a pacifier

keeping them happy. It's never
dropped and remains clean. You
can hang it on the kid, or hook
it on the car seat ... on any-
thing, anywhere," Shipley said.
Although there are similar
pacifier patents, Shipley's is an
improvement
with the advan-
tage of not get-
ting lost.
"When a kid
is tired of nib-
bling a French
fry or a drink,
the pacifier is
right there,"
SShipley said.
S, "I'm 42 and
have been a
roofer for 20
years. When it's
PENTER/News-Sun slow time, I like
y Jr., inventor to tinker and
ifier. figure things
out. Friends call
me 'Mr.
McGiver.'"
This stems from the popular
television show where McGiver
inventively and constantly
adapted items to get himself out
of trouble. Shipley said he can

Donald Shipley of Sebring got his Binkee invention idea while visiting his brother, Todd, and family from
Rockhill, S.C. Todd stands with his family, (from left) infant son; Justin who is being held by his 9-year-
old son, Michael; mother, Carol; and Todd is holding his 2-year-old son, T.J. Todd's wife is Amanda.


often take an item and make
something else entirely differ-
ent from it. He's constantly
thinking of things others don't
when looking at ordinary
objects.
"Usually it's simple and right
in front of you," Shipley said.
Shipley paid attention and
listened to his brother and sis-
ter-in-law, noting that pacifiers
were constantly getting lost
among cushions in the house, or
getting dirty when dropped on
floors. But Shipley's invention
solves this problem.
"Now a child c:a ev.il, t:&V'-
it frdm his shirL and be ',t htied,


and no longer has a crying
tantrum for a pacifier," Shipley
said.
"I saw Invent-Tech on TV
and called. They liked my idea
and told me to get on it imme-
diately. And when they told me
the financial possibilities I
woke up, especially since I am
struggling ..First of all they

assisted me in getting a patent.
Right now we're trying to get
the word out there and they're
helping me to find a manufac-
turer," Shipley said.
Invent-Tech Inc. of Coral
Springs represents individual


inventors who have a great idea
but lack resources, experience,
or market connections to turn
that idea into a profitable prod-
uct. The first step of their staff
is to research and obtain a
patent. In this second phase, thel
staff works with each client to
ensure their invention is repre-
sented to its fullest, by contact-
ing media, manufacturers, dis-
tributors, marketing companies
and trade shows.

invention, call Invent-Tech Inc.

Low interest rates, sizzling



Florida real estate market

Businesses able to grow with SBA Loans


Moving over for Denny's


Small business owners in
Florida face a unique opportu-
nity today.
The rare combination of a
white-hot commercial real
estate market with historically
low interest rates for one of the
U.S. Small Business
Administration's most popular
loan programs is creating a
once-in-a-generation opportu-
nity for small business owners
to buy their own real estate or
industrial equipment.
Commercial real estate in
many of Florida's largest mar-
kets has never been hotter.
Developers throughout the state
are creating new office/ware-
house condos and build-to-suit
facilities that are a custom fit
for practically every type of
business.
However, when small busi-
ness owners go to banks and
other private-sector lenders for
financing, they often have diffi-
culties with the criteria and
down payment requirements for
standard commercial real estate
and equipment loans. As a
result, they make do with space
and machinery that does not
fully meet their needs, which
hinders their ability to reach
their fullest potential and
advance the Florida economy.
One of the SBA's largest and
most appealing financing
options for businesses is the
"504" loan program, which in
Florida is offered exclusively
by a handful of SBA Certified
Development Companies.
"These institutions work
with small business owners and
private-sector lenders to create
government-backed financing
packages at terms that are sig-
nificantly better than those that


are available through the pri-
vate sector alone," explained
Todd Kocourek of Florida First
Capital Finance Corporation,
the largest non-profit CDC in
the state. "The 504 loan pro-
gram offered through the state's
CDCs is extremely popular
because most small businesses
in Florida qualify, and the loans
are reserved exclusively for two
of the most common business
financing needs: real estate and
fixed assets, such as machinery
and equipment."
The 504 borrowers must be a
for-profit business in Florida
with a tangible net worth below
$7 million and average after-tax
profits below $2.5 million per
year for the previous two years.
Most types of businesses that
meet these criteria are able to
qualify, and most types of prop-
erties are eligible.
Aside from its low interest
rates, one of the 504 loan's
most appealing features for
small businesses is its require-
ment of only a 10 percent down
payment from the borrower.
Most conventional lenders typi-
cally require 20 percent or
more, which is often too large
of a sum for the business owner
to provide. 504 loans are typi-
cally combined with a standard
loan from a private lender for
50 percent of the total project
cost, along with the contribu-
tion of 10 percent from the bor-
rower. The CDC underwriting
the 504 portion provides the
remaining 40 percent at below-
market rates that are only avail-
able through the SBA.. The
loans are fixed-rate for 10- and
20- year terms.
The 504 loan interest rates
have fallen to 5.86 percent, a


15-month low (and the fourth
lowest rate in history), despite
the Federal Reserve Board's
recent raising of the federal
funds rate.
"Even though the Federal
Reserve Board has been
increasing the federal funds
rate, there are a variety of mar-
ket factors that have acted to
push down long- term interest
rates for SBA 504 loans,"
explained Kocourek, who goes
on to say that rates are set to
begin climbing.
"A recent study and econom-
ic indicators predict that the
rates will soon start to rise, so
business owners hoping to take
advantage of the window of
opportunity created by today's
historically low interest rates
and highly competitive com-
mercial real estate market
should strike while it is hot," he
concluded.
Florida First Capital Finance
Corporation is a non-profit
organization that promotes job
creation throughout Florida by
working with the SBA and pri-
vate-sector lenders to provide
financing to small businesses. It
lends to small businesses under
the SBA 504 loan program and
the state of Florida Recycling
Loan Program as well as other
small business assistance pro-
grams. Operating throughout
the state, Florida First Capital is
the second largest CDC on the
east coast.

A queasy stomach and the
urge to vomit are terribly
unpleasant. Fortunately, nausea
- with or without vomiting -
is often just the symptoms of a.
mild sickness.
According to the June issue
of "Mayo Clinic. Women's
HealthSource", nausea also can
indicate a number of illnesses,
some serious. They can include
gastrointestinal infections,
digestive disorders such as
ulcers, gallstones, bowel
obstruction; and central nerv-
ous system problems such as
meningitis or brain tumors.
If nausea or vomiting results
from a minor illness, the best
advise is to. rest and treat the
queasiness with clear liquids
and bland foods.
If nausea and vomiting last
for two or three days or prevent
you from keeping down liquids


Blood supplies running dangerously low


SEBRING Blood supplies
are dangerously low.
: A high number of car crashes
and other accidents has caused
local hospital units and emer-
gency rooms to use an alarming
amount of blood.
An immediate response is
needed. All blood types are in
short supply, but 0 negative,
the most widely used in emer-
gencies is extremely low.


Hospital emergencies can use
50 units of 0 negative blood for
one car accident victim.
j--The,,0 negative blood is in
very short supply nationwide,
and it is virtually impossible to
import blood into Central
Florida. Eligible donors are
needed immediately.
A person must be in good
health, weigh a minimum of
110 pounds, and be 17 years of


age or older. There is no upper
age limit for donors meeting all
other eligibility requirements'
Donations only take about 30 to
45 minutes and are a great ben-
efit to a person's health, includ-
ing a free cholesterol screening.
Even if a person does not
know their blood type or has
thought about giving, the
Florida's Blood Centers -
Highlands County needs all


types of donors.

threats of physical pain or pun-
ishment. They show no indica-
tions of fear when threatened
and have a total disregard for
the consequences of their
actions. Significant is the find-
ing that they have no con-
science. The world evolves
around the psychopath. All that
matters is his needs and wants.
Family, friends and acquain-
tances are often hurt physical-
ly, emotionally or financially
when dealing with a psy-
chopath.
Psychopaths are master
manipulators and extremely
good liars. One behavioral
expert, Dr. Robert D. Hare,
believes psychopaths are nei-
ther sociopaths nor psychotics
but instead are people who are
well aware of the difference
between right and wrong and
simply choose to ignore the
distinction. In his book,
"Without Conscience: The
Disturbing World of
Psychopaths Among Us," Hare
provides a checklist for recog-
nizing a psychopath. Not all


traits need to be present to be
diagnosed a psychopath but the
binding trait is a lack of con-
science. Prevalent psychopath-
ic behaviors include a glibness
and superficial charm,
grandiose sense of self worth, a
conning and manipulative
demeanor, a parasitic lifestyle,
lack of realistic long term
goals, lack of remorse or guilt,
irresponsive and impulsive
behavior, and being a patho-
logical liar.
Most of us have difficulty
recognizing psychopaths.
Research suggests they are not
the product of broken homes or
the shortfalls of a materialistic
society. They come from all
walks of life and there is little
evidence that their upbringing
created their behavior.
Psychopathic traits usually sur-
face at a very early age and are
believed to derive from biolog-
ical or genetic factors.
Psychologists suggest that
by the time that a psychopath
is in his late teens, the disorder
is permanent. A romantic rela-
tionship for a psychopath is an
opportunity to find a trusting
partner who believes their lies.
Psychopaths rarely stay in


long-term relationships
because everything about the
relationship is a game. They
gain your affection quickly,
fool you with words, and
intrigue you with grandiose
plans. They do the same thing
in their business dealings. They
don't play by the rules and lie
compulsively. One behavioral
expert describes them this way,
"psychopaths don't discrimi-
nate who it is they lie to or
cheat. There's no distinction
between friend, family and
sucker."
Sociopaths don't seek psy-
chological or psychiatric thera-
py or other kinds of help.
That's because they don't
believe they have psychologi-
cal or emotional problems. If
they are arrested for a crime,
they may be ordered to partici-
pate in therapy or counseling
but don't volunteer. It also is
suggested that they don't bene-
fit from therapy. Instead, a
therapist is just one more per-
son to con. A psychopath lies,
role plays and manipulates
until they believe the therapist
is convinced of his or her reha-
bilitation. Once that is accom-
plished they go back to their

deceptive ways and move on to

Now that you know how to
recognize a few of the most
common personality traits of a
sociopath, you should think
twice before writing a check
the next time a glib salesman
says, "What a deal I've got for
you!" He may be a sociopathic
white collar crook looking for
his next victim.

Know when to see doctor about nausea

Generators can cause death when not used correctly


Electrocution and
carbon monoxide
poisoning come
from misuse
News-Sun
SEBRING A South
Carolina lineman working in
Flomaton was electrocuted
Tuesday after he came into con-
tact with a powerline that had
been energized by an improper-
ly connected generator.
The man's death is a
reminder that generators not
installed correctly can send
electricity into power lines as
well as homes lines utility
workers believe are dead.
Generator sales have sky-
rocketed since the onset of the
2005 hurricane season, particu-
larly since last summer's hurri-
canes left stricken Floridians
without power for anywhere
from a few days to several
weeks.
While generators are conven-
ient and useful, they can create
hazards for homeowners and
utility workers. That's why it's
essential to read and follow the
operating instructions that come
with them.
If the generator is connected
to the house wiring, the home
must have a transfer switch
installed by a licensed electri-
cian.
' A transfer'switch connects
the house to the generator and
disconnects it from utility
power. This. prevents back-
feeding from energizing circuits

Back feed commonly occurs
when a generator is connected
directly to the electric panel or
circuit in a home. Electricity
fed into .the utility system dur-
ing an outage will go to the
transformer serving the house.
That can pose a serious, risk
to crews who may be working
in the area to restore power and
do not realize they are working
with an energized line.
Homeowners., and residents
face a danger as well.

monoxide, a colorless, odorless
gas that can be deadly.
Generators should be operat-
ed in a dry, well-ventilated area
outside the home, never inside
or in an enclosed space such as
an attached garage.
Inexpensive carbon monox-
ide detectors, similar to smoke
alarms, are available in home
improvement stores.
AfterHurricane Charley, the
Cape Coral Fire Department
conducted more than 400 safety
inspections of households in the
city using generators.


One-fourth of the homes con-
tained potentially dangerous
levels of carbon monoxide, and
10 people required treatment.
Within three days of
Hurricane Dennis making land-
fall near Pensacola, the Sacred
Heart Hospital's
Emergency/Trauma Center had
treated four cases of carbon
monoxide poisoning from gen-
erators.
Because carbon monoxide
has no odor, victims may never
realized they are being poi-
soned, especially if they are
sleeping.
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency's state
response team reported that an
84-year-old Pensacola man died
in his home from carbon
monoxide fumes, released by a
generator he was operating
indoors.
If you begin to feel nauseous
or dizzy while operating a gen-
erator, get fresh air immediate-
ly, FEMA advises. Poisoning
can quickly lead to death.
If the symptoms are serious,
seek immediate medical treat-
ment.
To avoid electrocution, plug
individual appliances into the
generator using heavy-duty,
outdoor-rated electrical cords
with a wire gauge adequate for
the appliance load. Do not oper-
ate more appliances and equip-
ment than the rating of the gen-
erator. This will overload and
damage the generator and cre-
ate a fire hazard.


Commission will try to sell race track bonds locally


EDITOR'S NOTE: The
News-Sun has been publishing
news about Highlands County
since 1927 as a treat for our
readers. We have gone through
the archives and pulled stories
that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash from the Past of Dec. 18,
1969.

Highlands County
Commissioners are exploring
-'the possibility of local sale of"
ithe $1 millopn race track bond "'
issue withdrawn from the mar-
ket two weeks ago.
Sale of the issue, backed by
state race track and Jai Lai
taxes, was canceled when the
county's fiscal agent failed to
get any bids. Since the cancella-
tion on Dec. 2, the Legislature
has raised the ceiling on interest
to 7.5 percent.
The county commissioners,
at their meeting Tuesday, said
they are reluctant to pay more
than the seven percent set in the
act authorizing the sale.
The board agreed to pursue
Chairman Jean Whitaker's sug-
gestion that all banks in the
county be contacted and
quizzed about the possibilities
of finding local buyers for the
bonds.-
County Attorney Hue E.
Nunnallee warned the board
that it must sell to a single pur-
chaser or "be involved in a
hopelessly complicated situa-
tion." He added that if-enough
interested buyers contacted the


fiscal agent, Goodbody and
Co., the agent would probably
buy the bonds for re-sale.
When sold, the bond issue
will finance construction of
several new facilities, a bridge
at Skipper Road, second floor
for the courthouse annex, an


agriculture-civic center, road
and bridge facilities, county
buildings at Venus and Avon
Park.
Insurance Study In two
separate discussions Tuesday,
the board decided to study the
feasibility of seeking bids for
the county's insurance. At pres-
ent, the board has a contract
with Heacock Insurance Inc.
and commissions are divided
among the general insurance
agencies of the county.
Ford Heacock Jr. presented a
report on health and accident
insurance showing that for sev-
eral years claims have exceeded
premiums. He recommended
changes in the program, but the
commission countered with
naming a committee of employ-
ees to work out specifications
for a health and accident policy
on which bids will be sought.
Contribute Funds Alvin


Robbins, a representative of
Land Services, Inc., new own-
ers of Orange Blossom Estates,
attended the meeting Tuesday
and said his firm is willing to'
contribute $10,000 or half the
cost of re-building the main
county road through the devel-
opment from Fifth Avenue to
State Road 66.
Commissioner Earl
Crutchfield proposed a com-
mission "work session" to work
out new plans for work on
county roads. Engineer-
Administrator Charles WlIorgan
said about $82,000 remains in
the road materials fund.
Estimated cost of engineering
and construction on Hicks Road
alone is more than $67,000.
After a lengthy discussion,
the board voted to build a fruit-
loading ramp on county proper-
ty adjacent to State Road 621.
The ramp has been requested by
Lake Henry Groves, Inc., but
will serve a dozen or more
groves in the area and reduce
traffic hazards from large trucks
parked on the highway, the
commissioners said.
. Canal Maintenance The
board turned thumbs down on a
request from Placid Lakes
Homeowners Association for
maintenance on canals there,
but the request evoked the
hottest debate of the meeting.
Chairman Whitaker main-
tained that since construction of
the canal raises the tax assess-
ment on the adjoining lots, the
county should accept responsi-


ability for maintaining the water-
ways.
Commissioner Cecil Skipper
and Attorney Nunnallee backed
Administrator Morgan's stand
that canal maintenance is not
automatically county responsi-
bility. Morgan said maintenance
for other than drainage may be
illegal and Nunnallee said
maintenance does not go hand-
in-hand with assessment. "A
road in front of the house
Increases the house's value, but
that does not make it a county
road. Nunnallee said.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Embrace truth
When a witness in a
courtroom places his hand
upon the Bible and swears
to tell the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the
truth, "so help me God," it's
an oath and a promise. It
declares that what this per-
son is about to reveal is
trustworthy.
The fact that his hand
rests upon the Bible and not
some other book bears wit-
ness to where truth is found.
Truth for daily living.
But, people often rational-
ize the-truth and hurt them-
selves and others in the
process.
Topics such as child-rear-
ing, finances, marriage,
lifestyles, world views,
health issues and moral
absolutes are all covered in
that book of truth, the Bible.
Real answers are available
to solve the problems we
face. But, there is one step
that must be taken one
most people retreat from
rather than walk into pur-
posefully.
That is the step of faith
that requires our willingness
to turn away from harmful
practices. It is a deliberate
act of the will that exhibits
our sincere intention for
change. It is called repen-
tance in the Bible.
Repentance is: "A gen-
uine sorrow toward God on
account of sin and an
extreme dislike of sin, fol-
lowed by the actual forsak-
ing of it and humble surren-
der to the will and service of
God." (The Complete
Christian Dictionary for
Home and School)
Once this step has been
taken, we receive forgive-
ness from God and the prin-
- ciples for living described in
the Bible become clear.
We're able to see that God's
plan is for our good.
It is distressing to me that
so often when one seeks
counsel for their problems -
whether a wayward child,
financial bondage or health
issues they listen with
only one ear. They like hear-
ing that there is a solution.
But, they don't want to take
the responsibility of admit-
ting their way is wrong and
God's way is right.
Consequently, the problem
remains and intensifies.
Yes, the truth demands
action which often requires
sacrifice and discipline -
two words that aren't wel-
comed so easily. But, if the
person will see beyond the
present discomfort to the
future benefits, that person
is seeing with the eyes of
wisdom.
"My son, if you accept
my words and store up my
commands within you, turn-
ing your ear to wisdom and
applying your heart to
understanding then you will
understand the fear of the
Lord and find the knowl-
edge of God. For the Lord
gives wisdom, and from his
mouth come knowledge and
understanding. Then you
will understand what is right
and just and fair every
good path, for wisdom will
enter your heart, dnd knowl-
edge will be pleasant to your
soul. Discretion will protect
you, and understanding will
guard you." (Proverbs 2:1-
2; 5-5; 9-11, NIV)
To find the solution to
every dilemma, embrace
truth as found in the Bible
and the person of Jesus
Christ. Selah.

Florida Hospital

personnel serve from

their hearts
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Florida Hospital Heartland
Division volunteers agreed that it
was a first for them and for resi-
dents of Marcala, Honduras.
Residents of Marcala, Honduras and
the surrounding mountain villages had
never had anyone come to their country
to help them. Visitors had come before
and made promises, but hadn't kept
'them. Therefore, they greeted the
Florida Hospital team with veiled skep-
ticism and delighted hope for their clin-
ic and their people.
But when Dr. Allen Skipper, chief of
surgery at Florida Hospital Heartland,
and his wife, Ginny, a registered nurse,


along with John Harding, president and
chief executive officer of Florida
Hospital, his daughter, Stefanie
Harding, trip coordinator, and David
Ottati, administrator for the Lake Placid
and Wauchula hospitals, set out on a
five-day fact-finding trip to Honduras
in November, 2004 they made a
promise they would keep and returned
with a team of 23 volunteers May 22-
29, 2005.
"Honduras seemed the neediest,"
Allen Skipper said. "It is one of the
poorest countries in South America."
When they evaluated the needs of
Marcala and the mountain villages, they
knew anything they could do would
help. In fact, there were absolutely no
similarities to the way things are done
here except that they practiced medi-
cine on humans.
"All of our illusions vanished very
quickly," he said.
Florida Hospital Heartland Division
provided tons of medical supplies

equipment.


which were loaded onto two 26-foot U-
Hauls packed by Florida Hospital vol-
unteer staff. They were then placed in a
steel shipping container for the trip to
Honduras.
"It is a miracle and an answer to
prayer that every item that had been
inventoried was there when we arrived.
Not one item was missing," John
Harding said with gratitude.

Skepticism turns to joy
The focus of the mission was to
refurbish a small maternity clinic dedi-
cated to' the care of women and children
- but which treats any other emergen,-
cies. Within this focus, the team treated
patients generally and surgically; visited
the mountain areas for treatment and
education purposes; ana, did a lot of
construction..


A huge amount of health care is pro-
vided through the nurses in Marcala. So
the Florida Hospital doctors and nurses
spent time training the Honduran nurses
and doctors doing in-service days as
well. For example, they practiced how
to suture skin by making sutures on
table cloths.
There was so much to do. Since this
was a first for both sides, no one really
knew what was going to happen. So,
they got up each morning and started
with the obvious needs.
The people at the small clinic could
hardly believe their eyes when this
team of 23 began doing plumbing, tile
.laying, scrubbing, sanding and painting
bassinettes, restoring examining tables,
scrubbing tile, painting, making cur-
tains (on sewing machines brought
See MISSION, page 7C


Igniting hope by fulfilling a promise


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
,whole community of people in
Marcala, Honduras, responded
to the loving and giving hearts
of 23 unselfish Florida
Hospital Heartland volunteers. These
doctors, nurses and other staff took time
out of their busy schedules and con-
tributed their own funds to pay for the
trip even bringing extra things to give
to the children.
But, it was one child, one adult, one
mother, one teenager, at a time who felt
the compassionate, expert care of doc-
tors and nurses such as they'd never
experienced before. Consequently, hope
is alive. Their faces tell the story.

Stories, upon stories
Imagine a mother giving birth and
the only way you discover a baby has
been born is when the baby's cry is
heard. That is exactly what the team
experienced.\They were there for the
first baby bom in the newly restored
clinic.
Working in another area of the clinic
open to the "birthing room," they sud-
denly heard the cry of a newborn. How
could this be? There had been no outcry
from the pregnant mother in the throws
of labor.
They were told to their amazement
- how for years in this subsistence
farming community, women had babies
at home. Husbands had to get up early
to farm, so the women learned to
endure the labor silently. Even at the
clinic, they stoically do the same.
The cost to have a baby delivered is
$2.50. But, most families can't even
afford that. The cost for one suture is
$3. These charges are mostly over-
looked and no one is ever turned away.
Then imagine this precious newborn
baby wrapped in what amounts to
swaddling clothes being placed in a
dirty, rusty bassinette with a cracked
vinyl pad. Paige Skipper, 17, almost
single-handedly took it upon herself to
sand off the rust and paint all the
bassinettes. Then new covers were
made for the mattresses. Newborn
babies are now cradled in gleaming
white bassinettes as they sleep on the
soft pastel mattress coverings.


Dr. Allen Skipper (in back) and Dr. Percival Tamayo (left), both of Sebring, help a little
boy get a stick out of his lip while the child's dad keeps the boy calm.


New areas of service
Dr. Percival Tamayo, who practices
internal medicine in Sebring, usually
treats adult patients. But, on this trip, he
frequently cared for children. It was
frustrating to work within the limits of
minimal antibiotics from local pharma-
cies and over-the-counter pain relief
products. However, even that pales in
comparison to one particular case he
will never forget.
A father had been working in the
fields with a machete all day and came
home exhausted only to find his son
had fallen out of a tree. He had impaled
himself with a branch through his face.
The father physically carried his son
down the mountain to the clinic.
When Tamayo came to look at him,
the 7-year-old boy's mouth was open.
At first glance, the doctor thought he
might be there for a toothache. But
when he got closer and looked inside
his mouth, a branch was poking through
to the inside. Tamayo got right to work


as the anguished father held his breath.
Tamayo provided the treatment and
with just local anesthesia, Dr. Allen
Skipper, a surgeon from Sebring, did
the surgery. The stick was removed and
the child's face repaired and the little
boy never batted an eye.
This was an intense situation. But,
other needy cases included children
with horrible skin rashes around their
mouths and down their chins. The
mothers explained that this infection
showed up after the hurricane had come
through. With limited sanitation, infec-
tion spreads rapidly. The doctors and
nurses helped many of these afflicted
children.

Trust rewarded
Skipper was amazed at how trusting
the people were. There was no operat-
ing room. Yet he performed many sur-
geries in primitive, make-shift condi-
tions with only raw light directed on the
patient. He even offered his services by


traveling to La'Paz where there is an
operating room.
He told how his wife, Ginny, daugh-
ter, Paige, and Melanie Wagner Bassetti
traveled into the mountains to see the
families there. One family had two little
girls about 4 and 7 years of age. The
girls had various needs and the nurses
encouraged the mother to let them take
the children down the mountain to the
clinic.
But before the mother entrusted them
to the volunteers, she brought her girls
into the hut and in the best way she
knew how "fixed" their hair and
placed a bright article of clothing over
the .other shabby clothes in an effort to
make them presentable.
"The picture they made was both
cute and tragic," said John Harding,
president and chief executive officer of
Florida Hospital and the trip coordina-
tor.
The girls eagerly climbed into the
vehicle to take their first ride ever.
Another first for the girls was "warm
rain" coming down on them in the form
of a shower.
After washing them, treating their
ailments and teaching them about den-
tal hygiene and giving them tooth paste
and tooth brushes, the girls were treated
to new clothes and shoes purchased at
the local market (much of it donated
from the United States).
"The girls were very quiet," Ginny
Skipper said.
They had never had shoes and loved
the Mary Jane's. But, shortly after get-
ting back to their hut, they kicked their
shoes off and went back to their usual
barefoot style.

One room school
Imagine a tiny room with one teacher
and children ranging in age from
kindergarten through sixth grade sit-
ting around tables to learn. Imagine that
to get there, the teacher rides a bus to
the base of the mountain and then hikes
up the mountain to the school.
Two nurses did educational programs
helping the children to understand
about cleanliness and oral hygiene. The
children were excited and eager to par-
ticipate. So when asked who had,
washed their hands, they all raised their

Spies hide behind a cloak of normalcy


When a violent
crime takes place it a
community, why is it
that neighbors usual-
ly say, "They seemed
like nice people" or
"I can't believe I was
living next door to
them all this time and
didn't know."
How much do you
know about your
neighbors, co-work-
ers and friends?
Perhaps you'll feel


differently about others when
you read about the hidden lives
all around us.
Your eyes will be opened by
William Queen's book, "Under
and Alone: The True Story of
the Undercover Agent Who
Infiltrated America's Most
Violent Outlaw Motorcycle
Gang." Some of the indictments
and sentencing of the Hell's
Angels Gang members was
done in the courtrooms of
Tampa a bit too close to
home. Can you imagine the
nerve it took to assume another
identity for several years, espe-
cially when the group you're
now a part of is noted for intim-
idation and brutality?
The clandestine activities of


governments have
always been a reality.
Delve into the hair-
raising, secretive
world of spying with
these titles: "The
Catcher Was a Spy:
The Mysterious Life
of Moe Berg," "The
Double-Cross
System in the War of
1939 to 1945,"
"Every Spy a Prince:
The Complete
History of Israel's


Intelligence e
Community," "Charlie Wilson's
War: The Extraordinary Story
of the Largest Covert Operation
in History," "Spies for the Blue
and Gray," "A Man Called
Intrepid: The Secret War," "The
Saboteurs: The Nazi Raid on
America," "'C': The Secret Life
of Sir Stewart Graham
Menzies," "Spymaster to
Winston Churchill," or "The
Winking Fox: Twenty-two
Years in Military Intelligence."
There has always been a war
on terror, but we have not real-
ized how great a role spies have
played in keeping the peace and
allowing us to live in relative
safety. Reserve these titles and
see for yourself: "Cloak and
Gown: Scholars in the Secret


War, 1939-1961," "The Secret
Man: An American Warrior's
Uncensored Story," "For the
President's Eyes Only: Secret
Intelligence and the American
Presidency From Washington to
Bush," "Covert OPS: The CIA's
Secret War in Laos,"
"Sisterhood of Spies: The
Women of the OSS,"
"Cassidy's Run: The Secret Spy
War Over Nerve Gas,"
"Donovan, America's Master
Spy," "The Secret Service: The
Hidden History of an Enigmatic
Agency," "Cast No Shadow:
The Life of the American Spy
Who Changed the Course of
World War II."
"Eichmann In My Hands" is
the story of how Israel's Secret
Service found and captured a
war criminal. Anthony C.
Brown, who worked for the
Secret Service in World War II,
wrote "Bodyguard of Lies."
The biography of Victor
Ostrovsky, "By Way of
Deception," details his nerve-
wracking career in the
Intelligence Service of Israel.
You might want to check out
"Case by Case: a U.S. Army
Counterintelligence Agent in
World War II."
So how do you get to be a
member of this invisible safety


net? It's unlikely you'll ever be
allowed to attend Camp X, the
special training school for the
British and Canadian Secret
Service. Don't think we don't
need help, though. You'll
understand why as you read
"America's Secret War: Inside
the Hidden Worldwide Struggle
Between America and Its
Enemies." It hasn't been so
long ago that the prestigious
Federal Bureau of Investigation
was humiliated to find a spy
among themselves. You'll know
the whole story when you read
"The Bureau and the Mole: The
Unmasking of Robert Philip
Hanssen, the Most Dangerous
Double Agent in FBI History."
It's time for some comic
relief! Our thanks to the mem-
bers of Toby's Clown School
for their mementos displayed at
Sebring Public Library in July.

Florida's unique landscape was formed over billions of years


Florida has a unique karst
landscape that is found only in a
few places around the world.
Florida's unique geologic fea-
tures were formed over millions
of years. Erosion of the under-
lying limestone bedrock
formed:
Complex networks of
interconnected caverns and
caves. (Visit Florida Caverns
State Park in Marianna.)
Drainage basins, which
determines direction of water
flow across land.
Disappearing rivers. (Visit
OLeno State Park.)
Flowing springs, like the
many in Central Florida.
Collapsing sinkholes, still
happening today!
S Circular lakes, like the
many right here in Highlands
County.
- E Subsurface aquifers,
which provide irrigation and
drinking water.
A great place to visit to see
Florida's underlying limestone
is Suwannee Springs. The
springs have steep limestone
walls and natural limestone
bridges. To see pictures and


descriptions of Florida Springs
visit the Web page at
http://www.flmnh.ufl. edu/spring
sofflorida/.
Florida's geologic history
can be dated back to over 40
million years ago. At that time
the land was at the bottom of
the ocean.
Today's Florida peninsula is
the emergent portion of a tec-
tonic platform called the
Florida Plateau. Carbonate sed-
iments were formed (corals and
other marine life) on the rela-
tively shallow plateau, and
these fossils created the lime-
stone bedrock.
The dissolution of the lime-
stone bedrock formed this
state's karst terrain. Limestone
-.composed of calcium carbon-
ate which is only slightly solu-
ble in pure water, but easily dis-
solved by carbonic acid.
Surface water becomes an
acidic carbonic solution (pH 5)
when the water comes into con-
tact with decaying organic mat-
ter. Over time the solution per-
colated down through weak
spots, pores, or cracks in the
limestone bedrock and moved


through the aquifer as
groundwater.
The moving water
further chemically

draping mosquito
netting over strollers

You should also
avoid peak hours -
from dusk to dawn -
when mosquitoes are
most active.
Mosquitoes are
attracted to carbon

Yes... you can fight

Mosquitoes are
scary suckers. They .
not only deliver itchy
bites, they can carry

West Nile Virus.

Protect yourself by covering
up. Don't leave skin exposed.
Dress in light-colored long-

lightweight long sleeved cloth-

tightly bound to the fibers in the

An inspirational thought

S"' "And David inquired of God,
saying, Shall thour deliver then
into mine hand.? A-Ind the Lord
said unto him', Go up; for I will
^ deliver them initb thine hand. So
they camie rp to Baal-perasiIni;
and Dave smote them tke
Then David said, God h J
^broken in upon mine enemiesha
mine hand like the breaking of waters: therefore
they called the name of that place Baal-perasim."
(I Chronicles 14-: 10- 11)
We all can agree thatil there are areas of our life
where wie need a breakthrough. In thle above
scripture reading, we see where David inquired of
the Lord i'when He was in trouble. David did not
trust his own wisdom. The Lord told David to go
up, He would deliver them into his hand. Many
time we sit around i, ing on the Lord to
breakthrough for us v/tOiit really realizing that
we are a breakthrorili-_I&Moking for a place to
happen. We see here f e 1 as David obeyed
the command of the tifVhe got the victory. As
David did, we must tep out in fIith and
realize God is the Al f the breach and thei
. battle is not ours butl encouraged.

Jan Denise

leading

workshop on

relationships
LAKE PLACID -
Syndicated columnist Jan
Denise will lead a workshop on
"Pushing Fear
Out of Your
Relationships
to Get the
Love You
Want" on
Saturday, July
23, at 1122
DENISE Jonquil St.
Den i s e
gives advice on developing bet-
ter relationships in her weekly
column, "Inside
Relationships," which runs in
the News-Sun on Wednesdays.
Denise believes that fear is
the number one source of ten-
sion and anger, defensiveness
and blame. She plans to tell her
audience how to identify fear
before it wrecks havoc on-their
relationships.
"There is nothing to fear, but
until you have looked squarely
at what you are afraid of, you
still feel the fear," Denise said.
"And there is no fear in the love
you want!"
The retreat will run from 11
a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch will be
from 12:30-2 p.m. Those
attending should bring their
own lunch.
Cost is $35 per person, or
$30 per person for groups of
two.
Make reservations at the
Web site http://www.naked
relationships.corn or by calling
(386) 441-8117
"The only way to feel truly
happy and loved is to be your
authentic self," said Susan
Jeffers, author of "Feel the Fear
and Do It Anyway" and
"Opening Our Hearts to Men.
"Jan makes it easy to under-
stand what that looks like with
a romantic partner. Her
columns add a wonderful new
understanding to the lives of
her readers."
Norman M. Brown, co-
author of "Love and Intimate
Relationships," said, "Jan has a
- gift for understanding the many
fields of psychology and deliv-
ering her results in a way that is
entertaining and easy to
remember."

dirty hands at once. Lice checks
were performed as well.
The doctors and nurses
observed the primitive
"kitchen" area outside the
school where local moms come
and prepare a lunch of corn tor-
tillas, beans and a little soup -
probably the best meal the child
will cat all day. Then the chil-
dren eat outside.

Aha! Moment
Several of the Florida
Hospital volunteers were in a
truck. As they came around a
bend, they saw a woman carry-
ing a basket of food on her head
to take down the mountain to
her family.
For Jamie Bateman, Florida
Hospital development officer,
this was one of her "Aha"
moments. First of all, this
woman was 76-years-old and
the average life expectancy for
these people are mid-30s. A lot
of people die because they are
malnourished.
"This lady said that she
believes in God and prays every
day," Bateman said. "She felt
completely blessed because


School kids from Honduras participate in a classroom activity in a mountain school room.


God had sent his people to help
her down the mountain."
They had offered her a ride
and she gingerly stepped up and
hung on smiling tooth to
tooth, literally (one tooth on
each side of her mouth) all the
. way down the mountain.

Meant to be there
Stefanie Harding, trip coordi-
nator, shook her head in amaze-
ment. With her inventory list in


hand for all the supplies
shipped out ahead of time,
every item could be accounted
for.
"Everything had made it,"
she said. "I knew we were
meant to be here. It is almost
impossible for this to happen,"
she said in wonder.
The supplies went through
customs untouched, unopened
waiting under lock and key for
the people from Maircala to pick
them up.

"This was an


answer to


prayer. It's just unheard of,"
Harding said.

Quilting classes
With all the construction,
plumbing and medical care
going on, there was also a
sewing bee. Betty Bullock, an
accomplished quilter, thought
to bring along quilting supplies.
There, in the local Adventist
prayer room, she taught quilt-
ing.


Deeply impacted
The 23 volunteers returned
exhausted. They had never
packed so much caring and
physical work into such a short
period of time. It has taken a
couple of weeks to recuperate
fully.
However, they were deeply
impacted by the needs they saw
and the gratefulness of the peo-
ple with whom they interacted.
There is so much more they
wish they could have done; but,
they are gratified knowing they
had a part in making a differ-
ence in the lives of a small
group of people they had never
met before realizing, that as
the Bible says, they had served
the Lord Jesus Christ through
ministering to them.
"I tell you the truth, whatever
you did for one of the least of
these brothers of mine, you did
for me." (Matthew 25:40, NIV)
Whenever the people of
Marcala and the mountain vil-
lages go into the clean, remod-
eled clinic and recall the flurry
of activity that took place there
in just seven days time, their
hearts will be warmed by those
who promised and fulfilled that
promise in love

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
July 17, 1995: It was a big
day for two local teams in
the opening round of the
Dixie Youth Majors district
tournament in Okeechobee.
Avon Park hit six home
runs to account for 13 runs
in a 14-2 rout of Sebring
American, getting a three-
run and a solo shot from
John Paul Heston, a solo
homer and a two-run blast
from Will Jackson, a two-
run bomb by Johnny
Harrison and a grand slam
from Keith Haywood.,
Meanwhile on an adjacent
field, Sebring National's
Cor'y Dixon and Paul
Stefanic were combining on
a no-hitter in a 22-0, four-
inning rout of Port St.
Lucie. Both pitchers struck
out five and Sebring scored
13 runs in the bottom of the
second to blow the game
open. Ryan Knowles was 2-
for-4 with three RBIs and
three runs scored and
Richie Cormier was 2-for-2
with three runs scored to
pace the Sebring offense.

25 Years Ago
July 18, 1980: Tommy
Lovett pitched a one-hitter
and drove in the winning
run as Sebring American
beat Highlands City 2-0 in
the Dixie Youth Majors dis-
trict 'tournament. Lovett
struck out 12 and hit a RBI
double in the sixth inning to
break up a scoreless tie.
Leon Williams drove in
Lovett with a single for
Sebring's other run.

SEBRING Josh Chavis
struck out 10 batters while Gus
Williams finished 2-for-4 with
two RBIs to propel Sebring into
the winners' bracket of the
Dixie Boys 13-year old state
tournament at Max Long
Recreational Complex with a 6-
1 roll over Okeechobee, the
lowest combined score of any
game on the first day after a
wave of blowouts swept
through Saturday morning.
Chavis had one strikeout
every inning, only allowing
four baserunners throughout the
game.
He saved the best for last, sit-
ting down the final three batters
of the game on strikes to seal
the win, finishing up what was
the only complete-game per-
formance in the first round. The
blue and white now face Spring

today.
Sebring took the lead when

But Sebring's battle to stay
on top started early when
Okeechobee countered the one-
run first with at score of its own
in the bottom half of the open-
ing inning when leadoff batter
Jimmy Hadden walked to open
the inning. Two batters later, a


swinging bunt was overthrown
into right field, allowing
Hadden to score uncontested
from first. But Sebring caught a
break when the relay throw
caught the Okeechobee batter
stretching for third.
Chavis then ended the inning
with a groundout to stop any
further damage. Niether team
brought more than four batters


to the plate in the following two
innings until Williams came to
the plate again, singling to cen-
ter to start the inning. That's
when Mike Smith ripped what
was the game winning hit, a
long double to the left-center
fence to put Sebring on top 2-1.
One inning later, Sebring
stretched its lead after loading

to highlight Sumter County's'
11-2 win over Oak Griner in the
opening game of the Dixie

disaster in the fourth inning, Bartow scored
two runs in the top of the sixth to knock off
Lake Placid, 4-2, in the Dixie Youth Majors

Lake Placid will play at 3 p.m. today

Bartow was clinging to a 2-1 lead when
Lake Placid loaded the bases with one out in
the fourth. But Pike Cloninger rolled a sin-

Jeffery Person, who was advancing from
second, for the final out to kill the rally.
Tyler Howe walked and scored on an
error off the bat of Dustin Kincaid in the top
of the sixth to make it 3-1. R.J. Martin then
lined a single to plate Kincaid for a three-

Highlands County Ryder Cup

Young guns rule amateur qualifying


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING Youth is
served in amateur golf.
While the field of 29 finish-
ers on, Saturday at the
Highlands County Ryder Cup
amateur qualifying event
ranged in age from 16-65, low
scores tended to correspond
with low ages, and no one shot
better than 20-year-old first-
time participant Matt Scheck's
1-over-par 73.
"I look forward to beating the
pros," said Scheck, a rising jun-
ior on the Flagler College team
that finished ninth in the nation
in NAIA Division I last year.
Amateur team mainstay
Steve Hall qualified again with
a 75 on the Highlands Ridge
North Course Saturday, and
said the infusion of younger tal-
ent has changed the face of the
amateur team since he served as
captain in 1995.
"A lot of this is a credit to
Tom McClurg," Hall said,
referring to the founder of the
Sertoma junior tour. "He's real-
ly brought up some good talent
with these kids."
Scheck, who eagled 18, is a
Sertoma product, as is Matt
Cornuet, who qualified with a
74 Saturday, a year after he was
denied entry in last year's qual-
ifying event because he was too
young.
No such limit was in place
this year to stop 16-year-old
Jessica Williams, who shot an
83, missing the cut by just two
strokes.
Yet 65-year-old Jim Casey
made sure more experienced
players were not entirely held
down, and as the oldest player
on the course shot an 80, good
enough to qualify.
Others earning spots on the
team were Ryan Magnuson
(74), Keith Foster (75), Ryan
Gault (76), Rene Brown (77),
Melissa Doorlag (77), Frank


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Rick Hass chips onto the 18th green at Highlands Ridge North on
Saturday during Highlands County Ryder Cup amateur team quali-
fying. Haas made the squad by shooting an 80, one stroke better
than the cut.


Guglielmi (77), Dan Eslinger
(80), Rick Hass (80), Keith
Baker (81) and Mike Marlette
(81).
Scores were kept high as
officials tried to make the
course play as long as possible.
"This golf course is a bear
from those back tees," Hall
said.
Since the Highlands County
Amateur Championship, which
usually decides the captains,
was postponed by rain, Doorlag


was elected captain, and Hall
co-captain by the team mem-
bers after play finished on
Saturday. The pair will try to
lead the amateurs to a third
straight victory over club pros
next weekend, again at
Highlands Ridge North.
The last two Ryder Cups
have come down to the final
hole.
"It's been competitive every
year, from the time we started,"
Hall said.

Plastic lizards can attract big bass


For a while, the plastic
lizard lost its popularity with
bass anglers, but it is once
again a favorite with many
who know of its versatility. It
has been used more as a pitch-
ing or flipping lure and even
the pros know it is one of the
best plastic baits when rigged
Carolina style.
To Carolina rig a lizard, start
at the nose, run the hook com-
pletely through the head, hid-
ing the eye, and bury the point
in the belly, making it weed-
less. Use a smaller hook to
keep from weighting down
your bait. Using a bullet sinker
and an 18- to 36-inch leader
should let the lizard perform as
wanted. If the rig doesn't seem
to work as expected, redo the
rig. It is not easy to get it right
the first time. It took several
attempts before I was satisfied
with the way my rigging
worked.
If fishing grass beds or other-
types of heavy cover, a lighter
sinker will work through the
cover without the hangups you
would encounter with a heavier
one. Also, a shorter leader will
allow for a better sense of feel.
A Texas rig will allow the
bait to stir the silt or sand on
the bottom, arousing the
curiosity of a bass. The lizard
has more body than a worm
and will usually attract larger
bass. A small lizard worked in
and around underwater stumps
and other rough cover is effec-
tive and especially so on bass
beds in the spring.

OUTDOORS
Lloyd Jones

Lizards are not aquatic crea-
tures. The only animal resem-
bling a lizard that does live in
the water is the water dog.
Adult salamanders, which are
land creatures, lay their eggs in
the water. The larvae from
these eggs grow into lizard-
type creatures that some of us
folks call waterdogs. They
have four legs, external gills
and a fin like tail.
They will live for months in
shallow water, eating insects
and gradually losing their gills
and turning into adult salaman-
ders. Without gills and no
longer able to breathe under-
water, they are forced to the
land. Once there, they survive
in dark, moist areas near the
shore. Early spring brings a
repeat of the reproduction
cycle.
Bass are predators in their
own realm and this goodly
supply of salamanders and
waterdogs provide easy meals
for the fish in most lakes and
streams across America. The


Devil Rays top Toronto, 6-5


Associated Press
TORONTO Carl
Crawford homered and drove in
three runs in his new spot in the
order, and the Tampa Bay Devil
Rays held on for a 6-5 victory
over the Toronto Blue Jays on
Saturday.
Manager Lou Piniella decid-
ed Friday to drop Crawford
from the leadoff spot to second.
Joey Gathright went 3-for-5 as
the leadoff hitter.
Aubrey Huff also homered
for the last-place Devil Rays,
who have won two of three


since the All-Star break but just
three of their last 15 overall.
Former Blue Jay Mark
Hendrickson (4-6) won for the
first time since June 23, a span
of five starts. Hendrickson
allowed five runs four
earned on seven hits in 5 1-3
innings. The 6-foot-9 left-han-
der walked three and struck out
three.
Danys Baez pitched the ninth
for his 15th save in 21 chances.
Alex Rios hit a career-high
three doubles for the Blue Jays,
who have lost fo office.


plastic lizard is a close imita-
tion of the salamander and
some are even dressed to imi-
tate the waterdog.
Why do bass seem to just
clobber lizards? Some anglers
insist that waterdogs and sala-
manders eat bass eggs and the
bass have an inborn hatred of
them. That may be true,
because I have always had
good results using plastic
lizards. While casting early one
summer morning on Lake
Jackson, I went through a
package of tlO. I don't recall
how many bass I brought to
the boat, but I had opened a
second pack before my fishing
partner decided to call it a day.
On another occasion, fish-
ing with the same partner, I
used up the remainder of the
second package, leaving me
with the torn-up remnants of a
few. My partner took the man-
gled lizards, some with miss-
ing legs and some without
heads and proceeded to catch
even more bass, so I can attest
to the plastic lizard's ability to
attract bass.
As for size, I prefer the four-
to six-inch baits. I like the
darker-colored in lizards, even
black, brown or deep purple.
They seemed to work best for
me. I hope you carry a supply
of them in your tackle box and
have the good luck that I
enjoyed while using them.

Apparently, five weeks of
batting practice did the Sebring
14-year-old Dixie Boys All-
Stars a lot of good.
The host team hit the ball
early and often against Holmes
County in Saturday's first-
round game at Max Long
Recreational Complex led
by a 4-for-4 day from Cody
Higgins to roll to a 13-7 vic-
tory.
Sebring didn't have to play in
the district tournament, getting
an automatic spot at state as the
host team. The long weeks of
practice after practice paid divi-
dends on Saturday.
"For five weeks, we had to
wait, had to wait, had to wait,"
head coach Paul Sebring said.
"You just never know if I
worked them too hard or too


long. They're only 14, and
we've got parents that think I'm
a slave driver, but we're in
shape. We were out there (prac-
ticing) at 3 o'clock, and it
showed.
"I'm proud of them. It's hot
and the boys played well and
showed me that they were real-
ly ready. I had a question, but
not anymore: We're ready."
After going up 2-0 on singles
by Caleb McGee (2-for-2),

Rousch talks about teaching


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING John Rousch,
president of the Highlands
County Education Association,
speaks his mind.
Ask him what's at stake in
education today and he
responds, "The future of our
country.
"If we don't have an educa-
tional system that can deliver
people with the skills needed to
be successful, who can deal
with technology, we're going
nowhere."
Ask him what the teacher
union's role is and he lights up
with excitement.
"We have an opportunity to
really get involved." he said. "I
get so excited thinking about
what we can do as an associa-
tion to help our new teachers
become even better at what they
do."
Rousch is not a starry-eyed
optimist. He understands the
challenges faced by administra-
tors and teachers alike today.
Recruitment and retention of
teachers becomes more difficult
every year, for a variety of com-
plex reasons.
But Rousch believes in possi-
bility, and takes comfort in the
working atmosphere here in
Highlands County.
"We are so fortunate to have
the administration with Wally
Cox, (superintendent of
schools), and Jim Bible,
(deputy superintendent), and
others who genuinely care to do
the right thing," he said. "There
are no hidden agendas. It's
what's best for the students of
Highlands County, and let's do
-this together to. find a way to


make good things happen.
"I think all the planets and
stars have lined up in the right
direction. I'm really excited
about that."
He points to the recent con-
tract negotiations between the
union and the school board.
"It was the smoothest, quick-
est negotiation I've ever been
involved with. I was able to
give the school board negotiator
a list of all the issues before we
got to the table so it wasn't a
matter of reacting, it was being
proactive how are we going
to make things better."
Rousch pointed to three
major areas of concern:
Protecting teacher planning
time, retaining new teachers,
and providing services to spe-
cial needs students.
Regarding teacher planning
time Rousch said that the feder-
al and state governments, and
the school district, keep adding
to the list of things a classroom
teacher has to do, without mak-
ing compensating adjustments.
"With all the testing and all
the assessments and all the indi-
vidualized academic instruction
plans, they start to take away
the actual teaching time.
"The teacher protects the.
teaching time by doing what
they're supposed to be doing (in
the classroom). So when does
the other stuff get done? It gets
done on the teacher's time, on
weekends.
"People don't really under-
stand how much it takes to be a
teacher. They think we get in
there at eight in the morning
and leave at three. They don't
sW" the hours before school, the
four or five hours at night to get


ready for the next dlay. And the
summers we're doing training.
We're going to professional
workshops, doing what's neces-
sary to get us caught tip and
keep abreast," Rousch said.
As a result of the negotia-
tions, a joint Work Load
Committee has been formed. It
provides a formal structure to
research and analyze the impact
of new mandates on teachers.
"We're just taking lime out to
look at these things as they're
asked of us. Can we really do it
without sacrificing something
else. That's a change in the par-
adigm."
Regarding the loss of new
teachers, Rousch said many are
simply overwhelmed in their


first year.
"If you look at the statistics,
a review was done a few years
ago, within the first year or so
about 30 to 36 percent of new
teachers leave the profession.
Within five years 40 to 46 per-
cent of new teachers leave the
profession. Why?
"Well, in some ways the bub-
ble bursts. If you don't have a
very strong support system
within your school district,
you're going to lose 'them, and
we have a hard enough time
getting people to come here (in
the first place)."
This is why Rousch is
pleased that Cox asked

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
John Rousch was recently elected president of the Highlands County
Education Association, the teacher's union. He has been the union's
chief negotiator for the past two years, and teaches industrial tech-
nology at Lake Placid High School.


Union president



born to teach


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING John Rousch,
president of the Highlands
County Education Association,
has always been a teacher. For
the last eight years, 'he has
taught industrial technology at
Lake Placid High School.
He began the Green Dragon
Chair Company, a student-run
business building and selling
Adirondack chairs.
Trained in industrial educa-
tion, he graduated from Trenton
State College in 1971, and
earned a master's degree in out-
door education from Indiana
University.
As a college student he
taught in the Outward Bound
organization, and later worked
for years with the National Park
Service'.s youth programs.
As the youth program coor-
dinator at Mount Rainier
National Park, he explained,
"My crews would rebuild


buildings and build trails and
do everything in the park."
He has also taught adult edu-
cation with the Dale Carnegie
organization and the University
.of Wisconsin's extension serv-
ices.
He is an eloquent man who
sits quietly as he speaks. He has
the large, square hands of a
builder of things.
"I've had a wonderful career,
I really have. I'm very fortu-
nate," he said.
"What am I up to (with this
union)? Well, it's my chance,
and my responsibility now, to
help some people get to where
they want to go.
"That's my job as union pres-
ident. It's not to have a title, or
be anointed something. It's to
help people into the organiza-
tion, and help them to grow as a
professional. To get them
involved in things they didn't
have a chance to be involved in

Make it a point to brighten someone else's day


I get a lot of e-mails.
Some of it is the spam

mouse pointer heads
for the "delete" button. I'm also
on a few mailing lists, some done
by friends, who send me funny
and thoughtful things they come
across in that information clutter
we call the Internet.
Some e-mails get deleted
because I do make at least an
effort to keep my e-mail box
cleaned out. Some get shoved in
different folders with imagina-
tive names like, "Kept Stuff," and
"Column Fodder." I go through
those folders now and again,
especially if I'm having one of
those weeks of sitting down in
front of a blank screen, deadline
on the horizon and no clue of
what I'm going to write about.
One that caught my attention
is called "FIVE (5) lessons to
make you think about the way
we treat people." It is way too
long for the column. But the first


lesson is one that
made me think, so I'd
like to share it with
you. It goes as follows:
"1 First Important
Lesson Cleaning


Lady.
During my second month of
college, our professor gave us a
pop quiz.I was a conscientious
student and had breezed
through the questions until I
read the last one:
"What is the first name of the
woman who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of
joke. I had seen the cleaning
woman several times. She was
tall, dark-haired and in her 50s,
but how would I know her name?
I handed in my paper, leaving
the last question blank. Just
before class ended, one student
asked if the last question would
count toward our quiz grade.
"Absolutely," said the profes-
sor. "In your careers, you will
meet many people. All are signif-
icant. They deserve your atten-
tion and care, even if all you do is


smile and say "hello".
I've never forgotten that les-
son. I also learned her name was
Dorothy."
I find myself thinking about
that story today. Especially the
part about all the people we meet
being significant.
Most days we come across a
lot of people in a series of fleeting
moments. The young man who
hands you your meal through
the drive-thru window. The
woman at the checkout counter
who rings up your purchases.
The receptionist who takes your
name and invites you to sit and
wait to see the doctor.
If we are honest, we have to
admit that we take these small
times of contact lightly. That gal
at the deli counter may have cut
your meat every time you've
gone up to the counter. Do you
know her name? Do you treat the
person behind the cash register
rudely without considering that
they might be having a bad day
too?
Do you even make eye contact


with the people you come across
during your day, or do you go
about with your head down, lost
in your own little world?
I am guilty of some of this.
Friends will say to me, "I saw you
at the store, but you didn't see
me." Sometimes I let my
thoughts take over and I run
around on autopilot. But it is
rude. So I promise to try to come
out of my fog and be a little more
aware of my fellow humans run-
ning around this planet with me.
Also, realize this: If all people
are significant, that means you
are significant too. So next time
.you are out and about, remem-
ber this, lift up your head and
smile at your fellow humans.
Since you are significant, they
will hopefully smile back. And
maybe you'll find that your day is
a tiny bit brighter for it.

TEACHING
Continued from 1E
of human resources, to review
and overhaul the mentor
teacher/ peer teacher program.
He hopes the mentor pro-
gram can include all new teach-
ers to the district, not just those
new to teaching.
"You take a look at the num-
ber of people we have at the
higher levels of our salary
schedule and with master's
degrees. We have a lot of
skilled people in this district,
that's where we'll draw (men-
tors) from.
"We're looking at probably
two to three steps of (mentor)
training.
"The first one is building a
relationship and understanding
what that new teacher is going
to have to know in that first six
to eight weeks of school.
"Let's say I'm your mentor.
It's not only sitting down with a


check list of things you need to
know about, and where to get
information. I've got to develop
a relationship with you so you
trust me.
"Then you move into coach-
ing. Rather than my saying,
'Well, you screwed that up,' I
ask questions 'How do you
think that went? Is there any-
thing you might have done dif-
ferently?' I have to model what
I expect you to do."
Mentors will be paid a
stipend; the amount yet to be
negotiated.
Rousch thinks it's an impor-
tant investment. "You can pay
now, or you can pay later. What
does it cost to go out and get a
new teacher if someone leaves?
All those costs of training and
replacement, compared to
spending a little more money up
front, and having a mentor do a
good job so that a person is suc-
cessful and stays."
Regarding exceptional stu-
dent education Rousch pointed


to two problem areas getting
qualified teachers and finding
the funding to support the spe-
cial programs.
"We have such a high
demand for these types of serv-
ices in our district, and limited
resources. You have some stu-
dents who need almost one-on-
one care, and by law we're
required to provide those serv-
ices. It's not that we don't want
to, it's just a matter of how do
we fit it into the existing struc-
ture and find the financial sup-
port. It's a very complicated
issue.
"We want to get all the stake-
holders together this year and
look at the issue on a regular
basis and try to get ahead and
be proactive. I think that will
make a big difference in peo-
ple's attitudes."

In part two, Rousch talks about
classroom management and
setting priorities.

before, and to help them to get

Six years service




Roger Farver (right)
assistant state coordina-
tor for the AARP Driver
Safety Program in
Highlands and Glades
counties, presents a cer-
tificate of appreciation to
Roland Lee of Avon Park
for his six years of contin-
uous service as an
instructor at the recent
spring workshop. Being
an instructor is a volun-
teer position. Instructors
teach a minimum of four
classes and participate in
two workshops each year.


to his life.
He hopes to pass along his
own lessons.
"I have my bad days, just like
anybody else," he said, "but I
don't worry about the little
stuff. I don't let it bother me. I
just let it go.
"I hope somewhere along the
line mentors can help our new
people understand that."
It is the desire to communi-
cate that sort of wisdom that


makes someone a teacher, he
said.
"Because, let's face it, people
get into teaching because they
have a passion, they have a
desire to make things better.
They don't get into it for the
money, that's for sure. If you
can tune into that passion, but
realize it's important to take of
yourself, then you're going to
be okay."
