LAKE PLACID The annual col-
lection of alligator eggs on Lake
Istokpoga was above average this year.
Collection groups gathered 2,456
eggs from 88 nests on the lake Friday.
One third of the groups total collection,
about 8,500 eggs, will be purchased by
farms in Highlands County.
Allen Register, president of Gatorama
in Palmdale, has been coordinating egg
collectionss for the state since 1994.
"We enjoy collecting at Lake
Istokpoga because we get good eggs and
they are usually easy to collect,"
Register said. "Today that wasn't the
case, but we did meet our quota."


Carl Nettle, a member of the group,
spent the day retrieving eggs from an
airboat.
"Real dry and dense vegetation are
causing the airboats to get stuck super
fast," Nettles, a veteran collector, said
after dropping off a clutch (eggs from
the same nest) of eggs. "These (airboats)
are more of a challenge than the
'gators."
In fact, even though aggressive moth-
er 'gators do present a danger, the col-
lectors said they have more problems
warding off fire ants arMdthhe summer
heat. ,
The collection group ended an annual
two-week statewide collection effort that
started July 7. Alligators nest once a year
during June and late July. After they are


laid, the eggs take about 60 days to
hatch.
The Lake Istokpoga collection will be
added to the other collections at
Register's holding facility in Palmdale.
Then, the total collection will be
divided equally among the 30 alligator
farmers in the state with permits to buy
the eggs.
State regulations only allow half of
the total number of nests at a site to be
collected. The group pays the Florida
Wildlife Commission $5 for each egg
collected. Farmers who purchase the
eggs pay $10 per egg to cover the state
fee and collection costs.
Arnold Brunell, a commission biolo-
gist, said evidence shows the annual col-
lection doesn't hurt the states alligator


population.
In the wild, there is a 2 percent chance
that eggs will hatch to reach adulthood,
in captivity it jumps to 85 percent.
Alligator egg collection was legalized
in 1988. The commission's alligator pro-
gram officers monitor the entire process.
Before collection crews arrived, they
surveyed the lakes for nests using Global
Positioning System technology.
Aerial photos of the lakes were taken
and GPS points marked each rest. On
collection day, Register's crews used the
points to find nests in marshes surround-
ing islands in the middle of the lake.
Register directed the airboat crews by
radio from a commission helicopter.
From the air, he had a clear view of the

Plaza to become Kenilworth Crossings


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING A new life is
coming to the old Towne
Square shopping plaza off
Southeast Lakeview Drive.
The facility, also known as
"the old Winn-Dixie plaza," has
been purchased by a Cape Coral
firm that plans a facelift, an
aggressive campaign for new
merchants and a new name. It


Staying cool


will be called Kenilworth
Crossings.
Spokeswoman Cheryl
Maymon said the preliminary
artist rendering is designed to'
play off the nearby Kenilworth
Lodge.
"We are just in the conceptu-
al stage you must understand,"
she emphasized, saying the
plaza is "a great space."
Their idea is to take the


charm of downtown Sebring
but with larger square footage.
"We're not going to try and
compete with U.S. 27 necessar-
ily. We want to have a mix of
unique shops and professional
offices," she said.
One of the biggest question
marks is what to do with the
former location of Winn-Dixie.
Maymon said they had been
talking with some specialty


supermarket chains, a large
retailer, had also talked about a
conversion into a
conference/meeting center or
perhaps what Maymon
described as "an interior mall."
"We'd like to make the front
windows into glassed-in display
cases people can walk behind,"
she said. "Inside we'd have a
courtyard and smaller shops
inside."


Since the closing of the
Winn-Dixie supermarket the
Towne Square had struggled,
achieving some success with
the rental of office space to
Gulfstream Gas during its con-
struction period.
However, Maymon looks for
a revival, something they have
had some experience with.

SEBRING For now, it
doesn't seem the weather
service will go private.
That's good news for emer-
gency management officials
in Highlands County. Ben
Henley, 911 communications
coordinator, can't really
imagine how the government
could collect taxes to pay pri-
vate companies for a system
the military, maritime indus-
try and average citizens
depend on for daily safety
information.
Henley likened privatizing
the system to paying the
Internal Revenue Service to
figure out his taxes.
On top of that, the weather
station installed at the coun-
ty's Emergency Operations
Center was done through fed-
eral funding out of the


National Weather Service
office in Ruskin, he said. He
wonders what would happen
to local emergency response
without such local programs.
The National Weather
Service is tied to multiple
aspects of the federal govern-
ment, Henley said. The
weather service provides
wind conditions in real time
for hazardous materials inci-
dents, as well as for Division
of Forestry controlled bums,
which can help prevent wild-
fire, if done regularly.
Weather radios and free
online weather information
have become essential to
Florida, hit last year by four
hurricanes, and once this year
by Hurricane Dennis.
In April, Sen. Rick
Santorum (R-Pa.) proposed

After London bombings, it's business as usual


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING While offi-
cials in London continue to
look for the perpetrators of the
most recent bombing attacks, it
appears those in Highlands
County who will be headed
across the Atlantic are uncon-
cerned for the most part about
their trip.
"I have a couple booked to
go to England on the 31st and
we have not received any calls
from people concerned about
it," Sandy Greenslade of Home
Town Travel said.
Greenslade said none of the
agents in her office had,
received any such calls.
"I know, because we would
have talked about it," she said.


There are standard instruc-
tions for travelers that are
issued to the people that
Greenslade books.
"We tell them to be aware of
their surroundings, but that goes
for anywhere people are going
to be traveling," Greenslade
said.
Marty Albritton of Young at
Heart Travel said as of Friday
she had not gotten anything
from any of her tour companies
or any of the people she had
booked for overseas trips.
"I think it might be because
the people I have booked are
going with a reputable tour
service and they have all of
their own transportation and
such," she said. "So therefore
there's a certain amount of


security in that."
There are two bed and break-
fasts in Avon Park. And like the
travel agencies, they haven't
noticed the slightest glitch from
either of the terrorist incidents
in London.
Stephen and Gloria
VanDerzee operate the Lake
Verona Lodge in Avon Park.
He said that while it appears
the British populace has been in
shock, it has not deterred them
from travel.
"They can't believe someone
would do that in the name of
religion. It's unbelievable," he
said.
They're expecting a booking
in two weeks time. VanDerzee
said he'd received no indication
there would be any change in


that schedule.
"The British people as a
whole know how to cope with
this kind of thing," he said.
VanDerzee was more amazed
at the lack of concern he sees
locally about situations that
might present problems.
It occurred while he was
shopping at a local discount
store.
"Over the speakers they
announced that somebody had
left a black suitcase at the foot
entrance, please collect it," he
said.
VanDerzee said the hairs on
the back of his neck stood up.
"They weren't concerned it
might have been anything other
than a suitcase. In England, if
you see an unattended bag you


immediately become suspi-
cious."
Pat and Wilson Vance run the
Fernaugh. Bed & Breakfast.
They are from Northern Ireland
and had experienced the phe-
nomenon during the most active
days of the Irish Republican
Army.
Pat Vance said one reason a
lot of people come from the
United Kingdom is due to the
rate of exchange. She said the
people who have booked stays
there have been unruffled by the
attacks.
"The British have that 'stiff
upper lip.' They came through
the IRA and the second world
war. I think it takes a lot to
make them nervous; they're
very stoic in that sense," she


said. "If people are going to
come for a holiday they are
going to come."
In fact, the Vances have con-
tinued to make an annual trek to
Ireland without hesitation.
Margaret Gleave, a former
English resident who now lives
in the Lake Placid area, said she
never has had any reservations
about traveling abroad.
"Back in the 1970s when
they were hijacking all those
planes I told my kids 'If they
take the plane on my way back
not to worry, I've had a good
time and I'm happy. But if they
do it on my way there I'm going
to be very, very angry,' she
said.

England: Highlands business


development takes time


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING While it may
seem Highlands County has
several businesses coming in at
once, getting them to come to
Highlands County was a long
process.
"It takes a long time to land
these projects," Louise
England, executive director of
the Economic Development
Commission.
E. Stone Inc. is building at
the Sebring Regional Airport.
Concrete Building Products
Inc. is on contract to build just
south of the Sebring
International Raceway and a
third company, M.I. Windows
& Doors, is in negotiations to
build in the Commerce Park at
the airport.
Amerikan plastic pot compa-
ny has built a facility in
Sebring. Cross Country
Automotive Services, also in
Sebring, has 270 employees
and would like to build a fifth
call center to go with the ones
in Sebring, Boston, Sault Sainte
Marie, Mich., and Tuscon, Ariz.
Lowe's Home Improvement
plans to build in Sebring, across
from Thunderbird Road and
The Home Depot.
E. Stone was a lead from
Enterprise Florida Inc. in
February 2005. The company
wanted to set up quickly and


found the industrial park at the
airport already had the infra-
structure it needed.
The company also could
receive a Qualified Industry
Tax Credit, because it was will-
ing to pay workers 115 percent
of the average wage in the
county.
Concrete Products was also a
lead from earlier this year, but
most companies take a year or
two of coaxing to come to
Highlands County.
"It's always a long process,"
England said. "It's rare to have
a company locate as soon as E.
Stone or Concrete Building
Products."
Usually, the economic devel-
opment office gets leads, then
puts together a package for
them, outlining the economic
incentives for locating to
Highlands County, and promot-
ing what the county has.
"We talk up the county,"
England said.
Once they can schedule a site
visit, they take company offi-
cials on a tour of the county to
look for an area with the zoning
and infrastructure the company
wants. If there is an existing
building, they will get to see
that, too.
Cross Country took 18
months before it located here,
in a vacant retail building.

from the Florida's Heartland
Rural Economic Development
Initiative, and was in six to
eight months of negotiations
before the hotel decided to
move here in March 2004.
Amerikan originally wanted
to locate in Miami when a lead
from local business started an
effort to get them here in late
2003, England said. Local cus-
tomers for the plastic pots were
able to convince company offi-
cials to locate in Highlands
County when they agreed to
come here in March 2004.
M.I. Windows and Doors
came about from a company
representative looking in all of
the rural heartland counties for
places to expand. It's move to

impossible without their contri-
bution.
Local painter Greg Foster
will oversee the job that should
only take one day.
Owen said the new design
hasn't been approved yet, but
will most likely resemble what
is currently painted there.
"It makes you proud to live
in a town like Lake Placid
where you have murals and the
community doesn't paint graffi-
ti over them," Owen said.


The overpass, owned by
South Central Florida Express
Railroad, was last painted 20
years ago because of graffiti
problems. Since, Owen said it
hasn't been an issue.
The railroad gave the cham-
ber permission to paint the
overpass a second time.
"In Lake Placid we take real
pride in how the town looks,"
Eileen May, chamber of com-
merce executive director, said.
"It's just time for a nice spruc-

"People really enjoy giving
recognition to others, and it's

June shows slight increase

in county's joblessness


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Last month's
unemployment picture was a
mixed bag for Highlands
County, according to figures
just released by the Florida
Agency for Workforce
Innovation.
Although joblessness
jumped 6/10ths of a percent -
from May's 3.4 percent to
June's 4.1 percent the figure
was significantly better than the
5.5 percent unemployment rate
reported in June 2004.
Highlands County's statistics
showed that 39,393 employees
out of the 41,081-member job
pool were working.
Construction was credited as
the main reason for the ongoing
improvement in the local unem-
ployment picture. Repairs from
the 2004 hurricanes are still
going on, just as new residential
and commercial construction is
going up.
Highlands, DeSoto and Polk
counties reported similar
trends, but Highlands' unem-
ployment -numbers were the
lowest in the state's Heartland.
Local figures were on par
with the state's overall results -
3.9 percent and lower than the
5 percent unemployment regis-
tered in June 2004.
Current unemployment is the
lowest it has been since
December 2000. It put Florida

states based on their rate of
employment growth.
The state's non-agricultural
employment expanded by 3
percent, adding 228,100 jobs.
Nationwide, the number of
agricultural jobs grew by 1.6
percent.
Professional and business
services remained the leading
super-sector in statewide
employment growth over the
past year.
Leisure and hospitality con-

with the bulk of new jobs com-

Commission hearing new



bulk land use changes

evening during the Tri-Chamber Mixer at Henscratch Farms in Lake Placid.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners will
have a mixed bag of requests to
change land use and zoning on
Tuesday.
These are brand new
requests. The county still has a
little less than 3,710 acres of
requests from last year still
unresolved with the
Department of Community
Affairs in Tallahassee. Another
934 acres have already been
transmitted for approval this
year.
This will simply add to that.
Commissioners will have to
decide whether or not the coun-
ty can absorb additional acres
of residents.
Many of the changes are in
Lake Placid, and most of them
increase residential density.
Only one request would change
agricultural use to commercial.
Many requests, such as one on
Lake Grassy, could work as in-
fill bridging the gap between
the town and other residential
developments.
"In-fill is what you want,"
said Bob Bullard, county com-
missioner from Lake Placid.
It puts development closer to
municipal services, and make it
easier to absorb into the town. It
could also make the town, very
quickly, into a city.
Bullard.has been meeting the
Town of Lake Placid Visioning
Group local officials and
concerned citizens who want to
plan their residential, commer-
cial, and utility development,
now, before the town grows
beyond its ability to provide


services.
Private land-use change
requests include:
Lost Lake Groves Inc.,
Pam Fentress, and Horace
Durrance want to change 350
acres on the south side of Lake
Placid, north of Placid View
Drive and west
of Lake Street,
from agricul-
tural use to
low-density
residential.
I Kahn
Citrus Inc.
BULLARD wants to
change 6.24 acres on the north-
east corner of the Sebring
Parkway and Scenic Highway
intersection from agricultural
use to commercial.
0 Lawrence Bruce Wells Sr.
and Cynthia Leigh Wells want
to change 37.52 acres on the
west shore of Lake Grassy from
agricultural use to high-density
residential.
0 E.M.W. Associates L.L.C.
wants to change 76 acres on the
west side of U.S. 27, a fourth-
mile south of the intersection
with Lake Josephine Drive,
from agricultural use to low-
density residential.
0 Sun 'N lake Enterprises
Inc. wants to change 154 acres
on the south side of Moon Glow
Avenue and east of Golfview
Drive in Sun 'N Lakes of Lake


Placid from agricultural use to
low-density residential.
E Wava Howard, Cindy
Wester, W.A. Williams,
Howard Godwin, and
Georgiann G. McClellan want
to change 127 acres on the east
shore of Lake Pioneer, west of
county Road 627. and south of
Shockley Road, from agricul-
tural use to high-density resi-
dential.
James E. and Amy G.
Campbell want to change 4.75
acres on the south side of
Thunderbird Road and east of
Camaro Street from agricultural
use to low-density residential.
Indigo Builders of Lake
Placid and Excavation Point
Inc. want to change 3.75 acres
in the south portion of the
Tomoka Heights subdivision
along Lake June Road from
public lands to medium-density
residential use.
Magnolia Properties Inc.
wants to change 7.46 acres on
the south side of Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard, just east of the inter-
section with Magnolia Street
from medium-density to high-
density residential use.

al use to high-density residen-
tial.

Maymon, a property manag-

said she believed so much in the
project, she became an investor

She said there are some of
the vendors at other malls she

Heather and her husband,

The pontoon boat ushered the

Each egg is marked with a
green line that indicates the top

ment must provide under inter-
national aviation accords.
According to news reports,
the legislation was criticized as

ees contributed to Santorum's

woman for the senator dis-
missed that assertion as being

retailers.
"Your demographics are get-
ting up near 100,000 so you're
going to see at least some of
that," she said. "There are big
changes when they hit the
50,000 mark and then again at
100,000."
Nevertheless, Maymon said
there were a number of more
neighborhood-oriented stores
and chains that would be drawn
to a center which is centrally
located yet not on the main
thoroughfare.
"There are a lot of tenants
that would much rather be in
more of a neighborhood strip
than they would be in a power
center," she said.
The potential traffic created


of the egg. This is because the
developing alligators are
attached to an air sac at the top
of the egg. If the sac is broken,
the alligator will die.
Heather layered the card-
board transporting boxes % itfl
the natural nesting material col-
lected and positioned each egg
on top.


Opponents of the bill saw if
as a drastic restriction of free
information to the public, as
well as to airplane pilots and
farmers, who are among some 6
million people who each day
access weather service data on
the Web pages of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration.
Such pages have been used
by local media to track hurri-
canes still at sea and give
advance warning to Floridians
to make hurricane preparations.


by phase two of the Sebring
Parkway and the continual mar-
keting done by the Kenilworth
Lodge were other factors that
gave Maymon hope that new
life might be breathed into the
aging shopping center.
Maymon said she planned to
come to Sebring soon to again
look at the center and get a feel
for what the community would
like to see in the way of goods
and services.
"We'd love to get input from
the community on how *best to
utilize this center," she said.
Maymon may be reached at
the Cape Coral office of
Professional Realty Consultants
at (239) 242-1011, ext. 341.


In the evening, Register and
Hoho Brooks "candled" the
eggs to determine which were
fertile. Viewing one clutch at a
time inside a dark box, they
used a light to illuminate each
egg and check for consistent
color and bands. A band indi-
cates an embryo is in the egg.
"As much hard work as it is,
it's a thing people just like to
do," Register said, after finish-
ing Lake Istokpoga and the
yearly collection. "There are
people who take their vacations
to do this, and people constant-
ly volunteer to help."

WITH TUFFLEY
Chi ristopher Tuffley


Politely

talking trash
I was caught by surprise
when I drove into Highlands
County's solid waste manage-
ment site at 12700 Arbuckle
Creek Road in Sebring last
week.
The entrance road is pretty,
lined with pine trees which are
fronted by wide grassy swales.
The air was clean and sweet
smelling. Except for the con-
stant line of garbage trucks, I
could have been entering a
well-tended state park.
I had been told the site was
an example of-cutting edge
technology, a bio-reaQtor land-
fill, one of only seven or eight
in the country. Driving in, I
thought the stink had been
removed from the garbage.
I should have remembered
I'd been told to wear my
grungiest clothes and work
boots. In fact, I should have
gone out and bought a pair of
boots, instead of wearing my
gardening shoes.
Because beyond the beauti-
ful entrance, there is a scene
out of Dante's Inferno.
First is the heat.
Pass the trees, and there is
absolutely no shade. The sun
bakes down without mercy.
This is one job that requires a
good sun hat and gallons of
sunblock.
But that's not the worst of
it. It turns out that one of the
reactions occurring in a bio-
reactor landfill is heat.

The Beast demands respect


* This is the first of a two-part series on
the Highlands County Landfill. This
series will focus on who works at the
site. Next week, it will be aoout how the
site works.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Nei's-Siun
SEBRING The county's solid
waste management site, which opened in
the spring of 1996, at 12700 Arbuckle
Creek Road, is known as The Beast and
it is treated with respect.
"We're building a mountain," Dick
Gorman, its operations manager, said,
"and it's a living thing. You think The
Beast is quiet, but suddenly you have a
fire, or four inches of rain, and suddenly
The Beast has control of you."
The landfill is a bio-reactor, one of
only a handful in the country. It is per-
mitted and monitored by Florida's
Department of Environmental
Protection, and encompasses 990 acres,
40.of which are now in use. It has a life
expectancy of 150 years.
Despite its size, and the large volume
of garbage it processes, only 16 employ-
ees keep the place running.
One or two people are stationed at the
main gate in the scale house. They weigh
the incoming truck with its load, and
then weigh the empty truck on its way
out. The customer is charged for the dif-
ference in weight, at rates determined by
the type of material being dumped.
Tires, metal goods, construction mate-
rial and household waste all go to differ-
ent areas of the landfill. This is because
different materials break down at differ-
ent rates, and some are more toxic than
others.
Hazardous material is not allowed by
state statute.
"It behooves people to follow the
rules," Gorman said, because an improp-
erly mixed load can mean the customer
has to use the Class 1 site, which is the
mostt expensive.

This is a compactor. The machine weighs 86,000 pound and costs half a million dollars.
The county has two, and has to buy a new one every three years, because their life
expectancy is only six years. The metal wheels stand about five tall.


Loads are charged by the ton:
Construction debris costs $20; organic
yard waste costs $25; and Class I costs
$45 (that's where residential and com-
mercial waste and mixed loads go).
The people in the scale house generate
the computerized bill and keep in radio
contact with people in the field who are
called spotters. The spotters are notified
of each truck's description and where it
is being sent.
They then meet the truck and super-
vise the off-loading, double checking to
be sure the material being dumped
belongs where it is. They also direct traf-
fic, making sure there is a 15-foot gap
between dumping trucks.
Spotters help with maintenance
chores, like building fire roads or
mulching the dump sites.


Operators run the heavy equipment.
Bulldozers are used to spread the
garbage evenly, and compactors are used
to compress it.
An operator needs a commercial dri-
ver's license, Class A, with tanker and
hazardous waste endorsement. In addi-
tion, new operators are trained on site to
handle the equipment on the unique.sur-
face of the landfill. They must pass a
proficiency test. Experienced drivers do
the training and are the ones who deter-
mine who's ready to operate a machine.
Jennifer Willis, who manages the
office, and Sandra Giegerich, the recep-
tionist, are "the voices on the other end
of phone." They welcome calls for infor-
mation.
The landfill is pay as you go. Gorman
hopes to be credit card friendly within a


True Story is new to the landfill, having
worked there only a month and a half. He
used to ride bulls on the rodeo circuit.
Like the rodeo, he said, working at the
landfill wasn't a question of when you'd
get hurt, only how badly.
year, but at this time only cash or busi-
ness checks are accepted. Private
accounts can be arranged for regular
users.
Every load must have a protective tarp
completely covering it. There are no
exceptions. Even tires and heavy metal
have to be covered, because in the past
too much debris has bounced out of
trucks onto public roads.
For more customer information call
655-6438.
Employment opportunities are listed
through the county's department of
human resources. As of July 20, an
opening for a landfill operator/techni.-
cian I was listed on the county's job hot-
line. Starting pay for that position ranges
between $11.08 and $17.80 depending
on experience.

Grand Jury


A powerful investigative tool in the hands of the people


Swindlers are often charged
with criminal acts and prosecut-
ed as a direct result of a grand
jury indictment. Grand juries
are made of people just like
you. Therefore, it is worth your
while to know about them,
especially how they differ from
trial juries.
The major difference
between a grand jury and a trial
jury is that grand juries makes
accusations whereas trial juries
decide if a defendant is inno-
cent or guilty. In the simplest
terms, grand juries act as inves-
tigative bodies. They listen to
testimony, review evidence, and
if they believe someone should
be charged with a crime they
return an indictment.
Grand juries can be federal or
state and most are impaneled
for a set period of time, typical-
ly a week or more. Jurors are
randomly selected in a manner
similar to court juries. In fact,


grand jurors are often chosen
from the same group of citizens
who have been summoned for
regular jury duty.
Common legal protections
for people accused of a crime
found in the criminal courts are
not observed by grand juries.
For example, grand jury pro-
ceedings are held in secrecy and
the public and interested parties
are not privy to what goes on
behind closed doors. There is a
good reason for this secrecy.
The grand jury may find insuf-
ficient evidence to indict and
because the proceedings are
secret it shields those people
who are merely under investi-
gation. It also protects the iden-
tity of witnesses who might oth-
erwise be unwilling to speak. ,
Another difference is that
suspects do not have the right to
profess their innocence or to
present their version of the facts
unless asked to do so. In that


regard, grand juries
have a unique rela-
tionship with the
prosecutor. In theory
prosecutors act mere- I
ly as legal advisors to '
the grand jury. .
However, reality sug- --*
gests that the prose- 'i "
cutor's role is much CONS
more influential. For
example, grand juries OUT
hear only the wit-
nesses summoned by M
the prosecutor. Math
Because the grand
jury determines only
probable cause, the concept is
that there is no need to hear all
the evidence, or even conflict-
ing evidence. According to the
American Bar Association "it is
left to the good faith of the pros-
ecutor to present conflicting
evidence."
Because of the prosecutor's
unique relationship with the


7-



SUMER
REACH

*ark
hosian


grand jury some peo-
ple, including many
defense attorneys,
believe grand juries
are simply rubber
stamps for the prose-
cutor. Opponents feel
grand juries should
be abolished because
they "trample" a per-
son's due process
rights.
Due process under
the 5th Amendment
of the U.S.
Constitution means,
"no person shall ... be


deprived of life, liberty or prop-
erty without due process of
law." The 14th Amendment also
says "...No state shall deprive
any person of life, liberty or
property without due process of
law..." The fact is, research
studies reveal that grand juries
do indict more often than not.
On a historical note, grand


juries emerged in English law in
1176 during a political struggle
between King Henry II, the
church and noblemen. In the
United States, grand juries were
established after the American
revolution and were incorporat-
ed into the 5th Amendment.
In addition to protecting citi-
zens rights as mentioned above,
the 5th Amendment also says,
"no person shall be held to
answer for a capital, or other-
wise infamous crime, unless on
a presentment or indictment of
a grand jury." In today's termi-
nology, "otherwise infamous
crime" means a felony.
Although grand juries are
controversial they play an
important role in today's crimi-
nal justice system. Grand juries
have been used effectively as a
tool to fight crime ever since
the birth.of our nation. I suspect
they will continue to serve that
role for a long time to come.

tory of grand juries and how
they work consider visiting the

Law, www.iiudayvon.edu/>. Type

TRASH
Continued from 13A
Decomposing garbage gener-
ates tremendous BTUs. The
ground (and I use that term
loosely) is hot, so I baked from
above and below, and felt like
a sticky, toasted marshmallow
by the time I left.
Then there is the gross of
vultures. They skulk along the
sides of the dumping site, or
hop across its littered surface.
They move slowly, without
fear, looking for lunch.
And finally there was the
stench. Up close, the pile of
rotting mess smells like what it
is.
Still, the landfill is a fasci-
nating place and the people
who work there were not only
open and informative, they
were enthusiastic and proud of
what they do although True
Story, who works as a spotter
at the site, did admit it's better
- to.ask about pride and enthusi-
- asm at the start of the work
day, then at the end of it.
That's because the work is
dirty and dangerous.
I had hoped to be able to
operate a bulldozer or com-
pactor compactors are huge
machines weighing 86,000
pounds, costing about half a
million dollars a piece but
that turned out to be impossi-
ble. Not only does the county
have strict rules against non-
county employees operating
machines, running heavy mov-
ing equipment over trash is
vastly different from running
them over dirt.
When you think about it, it
makes perfect sense.
Residential' and commercial
garbage mostly arrives in plas-
tic bags. These create a surface
that is very slippery and
extremely dangerous. An ama-
teur with zero heavy equip-
ment experience is an accident
waiting to happen; even expe-
rienced construction workers
have to relearn how to drive.
I was, however, allowed to
go up onto the landfill, to get a
closer look.
This is what I saw.
The garbage is unloaded into
large piles, which are knocked


down by bulldozers and com-
pressed by the compactors.
Mulch, which is made from
grounded up yard waste, is lay-
ered on top for stability and
water absorption. It turns the
area a rich, dark brown.
Walking on the surface is
like walking on a bowl of
chocolate pudding the kind
of pudding that's-cooked, so it
has a skin on the surface. My
shoes sank into the muck with-
out quite breaking through.
When the dozers and com-
pactors rumbled by, the surface
under my feet shook like a
bowl of pudding would do. It
was very disconcerting.
The surface was covered
with flies. I mean a layer of
buzzing flies, so thick they
were like a living blanket. I
was told I was lucky there was
a breeze blowing which kept
them out of the air. On still
days, they can become unbear-
able.
I had to be alert and cautious
the entire time I was out there.
Thad to watch where I was
putting my feet nails, nee-
dles, broken glass, strands of
wire and disgusting clumps of


who-knows-what kind of glop
are everywhere. I also had to
pay attention to the constant
line of commercial garbage
trucks and private pick-ups
which backed in, tipped their
loads and moved out at a rate
Tom Lawrence, who works the
scale at the landfill's entrance,
recently calculated at one at
every 4.8 minutes.
These trucks are on a tight
schedule; the drivers are
focused on getting in and out.
My job was to stay out of
their way, which wasn't always
easy when my choice was get-
ting run over or stepping into a
pile of liquefied potato salad.
Maybe it was the sun, but at
times being run over seemed
the preferable choice.
As it was, I survived; my
shoes did not. They went out in
the trash that very night, and
are now a part of what they
once walked on.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Birds of a

feather
I watched the large bird
soaring in the sky. As the
wind currents carried him
higher, I wondered if he
might be an eagle or an
osprey.
Upon closer inspection,
my husband noticed the
absence of white on his head
or body. What appeared so
beautiful at a distance was
probably a common turkey
buzzard.
Things aren't always as
they appear to be. Most
birds wouldn't survive in the
altitudes that eagles were
designed to live in.
It's good to ask ourselves
if we are flying with the
buzzards or the eagles.
Where have-we been
designed to fly?
According to the Bible,
we should soar like the
eagle.
"But those who wait on
the Lord shall renew their
strength; they sfiall mount
up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be
weary. They shall walk and
not faint." (Isaiah 40: 31,
NKJV)
Have you ever watched a
buzzard descend to the
ground? His landing and
'movements are clumsy. The
shape of his body in no way
resembles the dignified form
of the eagle.
Sometimes we may
appear like were soaring.
effortlessly. But if onlookers
could get close enough,
they,d see that our troubles
and distresses are dragging
us down. Like the buzzards
awkward, ungraceful move-
ments we're clumsily try-
- ing to carry our load alone.
God wants those who love
him to have an attitude of
faith that expectantly awaits
him. Then we can fly higher
and rise above our troubles -
blessed by his rest that'
descends upon our spirits
and renews us. When we
wait on him, we can soar
like eagles just as he promis-
es.
Years ago, in the early
days of having been a single-
mom, "flying high" took
much effort. Though most
onlookers saw my smiling
face, those closest to me
knew I wasn't soaring with
the eagles.
Then God impressed upon
my heart that I was his
daughter, the child of the
King. I sensed that my new
situation would be a proving
ground of my faith. I wanted
to. please my heavenly
Father and be trustworthy.
This attitude of faith and
belonging helped me rise
above my circumstances and
know God's rest and sustain-
ing power. Suddenly, I could
soar.
Unlike the buzzard, when
the eagle descends, his grace
in flight and poise in landing
is a wonder to behold. The
air of magnificent control
and power is ever present.
Isn't that what the fruit of
the Spirit produces in believ-
ers: joy, peace, longsuffer-
ing, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and
self-control? He wants us to
have his poise as we inhabit
this earth, no matter our cir-
cumstances.
Which birds of a feather
are we associating with?
Let's stay in the realm we
were created for.
Are those eagle feathers I
see? Selah.

Sandra Fankhauser with
Caramel. a female named for
the color of her fur.


'- loci


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
.-. ... he Fankhauser home is all about
animals. Visitors are greeted at the
front door by four large dogs in a
blur of jumping, licking and tail
wagging. Their owners, Dick and
Sandra Fankhauser, hurry to the res-
cue with smiles of welcome.
In the side yard, curious alpacas begin to
cluster along the fence, stretching their long
graceful necks to see what is happening, their
huge liquid eyes peer out from under bouffant
pompadours of golden, white and brown fur.


Alpacas? These are cold cli-
mate animals from the high
Andes mountains in South
America. What are they doing
in Florida?
In the summer of 2002, the
Fankhausers fell in love with
alpacas while traveling to visit
relatives in Ohio. They had
seen a television show about
alpacas and being animal
lovers, were intrigued. So they
visited several alpacas farms
during their trip and heard
"nothing but good words about
alpacas," according to Sandra.
"We were hooked."
The Fankhausers purchased
two pregnant females from
Magical Farms Inc. in Ohio
before returning home.
Magical Farms kept the ani-
mals until their babies -
called crias were born, then
rebred them.
While they were awaiting
the arrival of mothers and
crias, the Fankhausers built a
barn and completed fencing on
the 10-acre property of Airport
Road. Shortly before Christmas
in 2002, the four alpacas were
delivered to their new home,
one of only two alpaca farms
in Central Florida.
"There are 50 alpaca farms
throughout Florida now,"
according to Sandra, "but most
of them are north of here."
They are part of a growing
alpaca industry in the state and
surprisingly, the alpacas have
had little problem adapting to
the warmer climate.
The alpacas are sheered
once a year for their fleece and
yield about 5-10 pounds per
animal. "We sheer them the
end of April or beginning of
May, so they don't have heavy
fur throughout the hot summer
months,' Sandra said.
The alpacas have shade trees
in their enclosures, with chil-


dren's wading pools under-
neath. Every day, their owners
hose them off and fill their
pools where several animals
crowd in to stand together in


the water. They also provide
huge fans in the outdoor enclo-
sure and in the barn.
Alpacas have very strong
herding instincts and need the
companionship of other
alpacas to thrive. The Alpaca
O(. ners and Breeders
Association recommends that
o% ners provide each alpaca
%. ith a companion of the
same gender. The
F.nkhausers now have 18
alpacas on their 10 acres.
The animals are gentle and
gregarious, grouping them-
selves together in little clus-
ters of four or five.
Although Sunshine
Alpacas is a business,
the Fankhausers treat their
S alpacas as pets. They are
breeding their animals to
sell and have had six new
crias born since starting
their farm.
The first alpacas were
imported into the United
States in 1984, to a farm in
Oregon. The success of this
experiment motivated other
farmers to begin importing
and breeding the gentle ani-
nais. When these early
breeders began to recognize
the potential for establishing
an alpaca industry in the
United States, they asked
Congress to recognize alpaca
farms as a business and allow
the same tax breaks that were
given to other new businesses.
The legislation was approved
and United States breeders
now can have up to $100,000
per year in tax write-offs to
establish their herds.
"This business is a great tax
deduction," Dick said.
The breeders need it because
establishing a herd is not
cheap. A pregnant female costs
$20,000; non-pregnant females
cost about $12,000 to $15,000.
The Fankhausers paid $30,000
for their champion male breed-
er, Omega, but some champion
male sires have sold for as
much as $250,000.
"When people ask me the
difference between an alpaca
and a llama, I tell them price,"
Dick laughed. "You can buy a
llama for about $1,000. But a
llama is a pack animal. Its' fur
is rougher."

Sandra Fankhauser nuzzles and talks to one of her males in the
barn at Sunshine Alpacas. The males are kept in separate enclosures
until they are selected for breeding to specific females.


Dick Fankhauser holds a roll of 'roving' slightly twisted strands of
textile fibers just produced on his roving machine. Roving must be
spun to produce yarn, the final step in the process.


The main difference between
the alpaca and its larger cousin
is the quality of the fleece.
Both are members of the camel
family, but alpaca fleece is
finer than llama fur and is used
primarily for clothing. It is two
times warmer than cashmere
and four times more expensive.
Alpaca yarns are used to make
high-end clothing items such
as sweaters, scarves and mit-
tens, which are prized for their


warmth and softness.
Before alpacas were intro-
duced into this country, the
United States was importing
40,000 tons of fleece annually
from Peru. Farms have been
multiplying throughout the
country to the point where
United States breeders now
supply about one-third of the
fleece to the clothing industry.

The gulf sturgeon
(A c i o e n se r
oxvrhynchus desotoi)
is an interesting fish.
At first glance, it is
easy to recognize the
gulf sturgeon's primi-
tive origins. Instead
of fish scales, the
sturgeon have skin
embedded with
armored plates called
scutes or modified
scales, a long snout
and a vacuum-like
mouth. Another inter-
esting feature is their
catfish-like whiskers,
called barbels, that


assist them in feeding on small,
bottom-dwelling invertebrates.
These fish can grow to 5-6
-feet in length, weigh hundreds
of pounds and live more than 60
years. Females spawn once they
reach the age of 8-12. The
largest documented sturgeon
was caught in 1936 and
weighed 503 pounds.
Gulf sturgeon is a subspecies
of Atlantic sturgeon, which can
also be found in Florida's
coastal waters. The gulf stur-
geon used to be common in the
Gulf Coast estuaries and in sev-
eral major river systems along
coastal Florida, Alabama, and
Louisiana.
Near the turn of the century,
over-fishing and damming
rivers for hydroelectric power
caused a drastic decline in stur-
geon populations. Today, only
the Suwannee River supports
an intact breeding population of


gulf sturgeon, esti-
mated at around
8,000.
' % The gulf sturgeon
is listed as threatened
i under the
n 'i Endangered Species
Act.
Sturgeons are
andromous, which
NS means they are a salt-
THE water species that
THE returns to fresh water
SHED for breeding. Adult
sturgeon will return
Donze to their birthplaces to
- mate and spawn in
areas that provide
shallow water with a
bottom substrate of mixed
sands and gravel.
After spawning, the adults
will return to the estuary sys-
tems along the coast. This
migration can begin in late win-
ter and reach its peak in May
with a secondary peak in
October. These migrations
seem to be triggered by water
temperature. Young sturgeon
will remain in fresh water for
up to six years before they
migrate to salt water.
During these summer months
on the Suwannee River, you
might catch a glimpse of the
gulf sturgeon. They are famous
for jumping. Imagine the splash
of a 6-foot, 200-pound stur-
geon! Scientists have counted
more than 1,000 jumps from
various sturgeon in a single
day!
Commercial harvesting has
been banned in Florida,


Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama. Research on the gulf
sturgeon and its habitat is look-
ing at how to preserve a species
that is threatened by the loss of
habitat, barriers to spawning
grounds and poor water quality.
Gulf sturgeon have been exper-
imentally reared to study their
life history and to possibly rein-
troduce them into the wild.
There are many good reasons
to preserve the gulf sturgeon.
The ancestry of this unique fish
dates back 200 million years.
These fish are an excellent indi-
cator of the health of aquatic
systems. Some fishery experts
say the species will have eco-
nomic potential like caviar
-once populations have recov-
ered. Sturgeons, like sharks,
have no history of cancers and
also may provide some impor-
tant medical information to
combat this disease.
At this time, the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service is working
to prevent further reductions in
the existing wild populations
and establish larger population
levels that would allow the
species to be removed from the
threatened list. The hope is that
the populations of these fish
could someday become self-
sustaining and withstand fish-
ing pressure in each river sys-
tem.

An inspirational thought

SProverbs 16:9, (NKJV) "A
S man's heart plans his way, but
the Lord directs his steps."
Proverbs 3:5-6, (NKJV), "Trust
I in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own
understandings; In all your
ways acknowledge Him, and iHe
shall direct your paths" We may
have made plans that are not directed by the Lord.
So, what are we to do? Take a little time to think.
Did I acknowledge the Lord about these plans? The
dictionary tells us this plan means to think out
beforehand how something is to be made or done.
It also means to have in mind as a purpose or
intend. Now look at the word direct. It means to
manage, guide, or control. Knowing the meaning
of those two words in the above scripture, how will
you handle your plans being redirected b tlhe

Fur that is sold raw and
unspun currently sells for $64
per pound.
Last year Fankhausers took
their business to the next level
by investing $40,000 to set up
fleece processing equipment in
their large garage. "This is the
only processing facility in the
United States," Dick said. "The
only other one is in Lima,
Peru."
He picks up a fluffy pile of
fur awaiting processing in his
shop and explained: "It's easy
to work with. We just wash it in
the washing machine and let it
air dry you can't put it in a
dryer.
"Sometimes we have to wash
it two or three times, though,"
Sandra added. "We have a big
problem with sand here."
The processed fleece is sold
in spools of roving, slightly
twisted strands of textile fibers.
Roving is purchased by hand
spinners who make their own
yarn. The Fankhausers see yarn
as their most important product
in the future and plan to buy
their own spinner. Currently,
they send their roving out to be
spun for customers who want
yarn.
Dick and Sandra Fankhauser
met in high school and have

more than 30 years in Fort
Lauderdale, they retired from

president of the Humane
Society of Highlands County.
Sandra is a volunteer for
Heartland Horses &
Handicapped, where she is in
charge of exercising clients on
the horses. She also conducts
pet therapy for the elderly with
their big, friendly dogs.
Dick said that he had to give
up his volunteer work to focus
on caring for the alpacas and
building the business.
"But they are easy to care


for," he added. "They are gen-
tle, sweet and very lovable."
The Fankhausers welcome
visitors and will gladly show
their herd to interested people.
They love to talk about alpacas

responsibilities of maintaining
healthy animals.

and dengue to man, encephalitis
to man and horses, and heart-
worms to dogs.
One of the easiest ways to
reduce the number of mosqui-
toes in your back yard is to
"uninvite" them. Here are a few
defensive strategies that will
help keep these unwanted
insects from making them,
selves at home. %
Eliminate breeding
grounds. Mosquitoes lay eggs
in stagnant water, so make it a
high priority to get rid of theses
breeding grounds. Check items
that collect water, such as flow-
erpots, buckets, gutters, tarps,
tires and kiddy pools. Empty
standing water and store water


collectors in a dry
sheltered location.
Low spots in the
lawn that puddle can
also be mosquito
breeding grounds.
Fill in these areas
with soil.
Change water
in birdbaths twice a
week
Keep gutters
clean and debris free
Inspect win-
dow screens.
Mosquitoes can enter
your home through


almost any opening, be it a bro-
ken window or a crack below a
door. Keep the insects at bay by
making sure your screens fit
well, and fix damaged ones
immediately. A favorite place
for mosquitoes to congregate is
in the coolness of a garage.
Shut the doors to keep them
out.
M Yellow light. Light your
deck, patio or porch with yel-
low "bug lights." They don't
attract nearly the number of
mosquitoes as incandescent
lights. Also, because mosqui-
toes are relatively weak fliers,
setting a large oscillating fan on
the deck or patio may make it
difficult for them to get to you.


Invite predators. When
combined with other control
methods, the introduction of
mosquito eaters may keep pop-
ulations under control. Bats,
dragonflies and goldfish feast
on mosquitoes. To welcome
them to your yard, put up bat
houses, or add fathead minnows
or mosquito fish.
No doubt about it, humans
are outnumbered by mosquitoes
on a warm summer night. But,
armed with this knowledge for
keeping them away, you now
have a fighting chance.
Facts are, mosquitoes will
never be eliminated from our
lives. They've been around for
170 million years!

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
July 24, 2000: Wisley
Correa scored two runs and
made two diving catches
playing with a broken col-
larbone as the Sebring 14-
year-olds bounced back
from a loss to Bartow earli-
er in the day with an 8-6
win over Southport at the
state tournament in
Marianna.

10 Years Ago
July 25, 1995: Sebring's
Eric Vause went 2-for-4
with 2 RBIs and relief pitch-
er Charlie Lanier got out of
an- inherited bases-loaded
jam in the fifth to lead
Sebring to an 8-4 win over
Myrtle Grove in the Dixie
Pre-Majors state tourney in
Avon Park. Pedro Montanez
added a two-run single for
Sebring to key a four-run
first inning.

25 Years Ago
July 25, 1980: Avon Park
racked up 13 hits while
pitcher Ricky Johnson was
allowing just three in a 12-1
win over Bartow to win the
Big League District 4 cham-
pionship in Wauchula.
Johnson had three hits in
the game to raise his aver-
age for the tourney to .700,
while Jim Marcum and
Dennis Barefield added two
hits apiece and Dave
Roberts hit a home run as
Avon Park advanced to the
Section III tournament.

11th Highlands County Ryder Cup



First day ends all square

Pros, amateurs tied 6-6 heading

into today's 12 singles matches


/ *--.-17 .:, .. ....

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Pro team member Val Patarini gets out of a bunker next to the No.
13 green during Saturday's opening round of the Highlands County
Ryder Cup at Highlands Ridge North.


By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK After all
was said and done, everyone
could have just taken a day
off.
The amateur and pro teams
each won three matches in
both the morning best ball
play and the afternoon alter-
nate shot format to end up in a
6-6 tie heading into today's
final round of the 11th
Highlands County Ryder Cup
at Highlands Ridge North.
And if history repeats
itself, today could feature a
fantastic finish.
Last year's matches at Sun
'N Lake were also tied 6-6
heading into Sunday's singles
matches, and things weren't
decided until the final shot of
the final match on the course,
with the amateurs taking a 12
1/2-11 1/2 win to win the Cup
for the eighth time in 10 tries.
The amateurs also won by
that same score in 2003, the
last time the matches were
held at Highlands Ridge
North, but on that occasion
they had to turn away a furi-


ous rally by the pros, who
trailed 8-4 heading into the
final day. The amateur win
that year got the Cup back
after two years in pro hands
following a win in 2001 and a
tie the next year.
. On Saturday, only two
matches one each in the
morning and afternoon -
made it to the final hole as
lopsided scores were the
story.
In the afternoon action, the
amateurs got wins from Steve
Hall and Keith Foster, who
made quick work of John
Dean and Bill Newman with a
6 and 5 win; Matt Scheck and
Rene Brown, 4 and 3 winners
over Mike Sayer and John
Vicker; and Mike Marlette
and Ryan Gault, who closed
out Joel Walkup and John
Phillips early with a 5 and 4
win.
The pros countered with
Scott Todd and Val Patarini
cruising to a 6 and 5 win over
Rick Haas and Dan Eslinger
and the team of Fran
Deschane and Jason Laman

Detroit Brown-

out more than

meets the eye
There has to be more to this.
For all we heard from Larry
Brown about how poor his
health has been, and how he
wouldn't coach anyone but the
Detroit Pistons next season,
the fact that his introduction as
the new head coach of the
New York Knicks seems
imminent means something
egregious and unforeseen must
have gone down between
Brown and Pistons manage-
ment.
It just wouldn't make sense
otherwise.
To truly understand the cir-
cumstances, you have to
understand the principals
involved. Unusual reasoning
behind coaching changes is
nothing new in sports, where
job security and loyalty often
take a backseat to vapid
axioms about "shaking things
up" and letting players "hear a
new voice" from the sideline.
Yet if a pink slip is
inevitable for coaches, then
Brown has made a career out
of beating teams to the punch.
He is more well-known as a
vagabond than he is as.the
only man ever to win both an
NCAA and NBA champi-
onship, and the notion that he
might have been on the way
out during the playoffs this
year should have been met
with a yawn.
It would be out of character
for Pistons President Joe
Dumars to treat such specula-
tion otherwise. When he
played for the team, Dumars
was the ice to the Bad Boys'
fire, the quiet guy in the corner
who never said much but knew
exactly what he was doing,
coming away the 1989 Finals
MVP and a reputation as one
of the game's finest defenders.
Dumars had to know that
Brown might do something
like talk to the Cavs about
becoming their president,
which for some reason set the
basketball world abuzz this

endurance there It is kind of
funny that if itn
wasn't for one crazy postal worker,
well, former postal worker, hardly any
Americans would know diddly about
the toughest test of strength and
endurance there is in world of sport. ,
I didn't even realize how amazingly


tough it is until I looked up some
stats. For instance, did you know that
in the three weeks of the Tour (minus
two rest days) those who complete the
race will have traveled 2,241 miles. It
is only 2,227 miles from Avon Park to
Los Angeles. It takes our family a
week to drive out there, but these guys
are biking it in three.
The fastest average speed for the
whole race was 25 mph by Lance
Armstrong in 1999. Now that is
incredible, but I think it is hard for
Floridians to grasp just how amazing
it is, because in the race they have to
go over what are called mountains.
I know, I know, what are those? I
had to get an atlas out to see, too, but
they are like what we call hills, those
little rises in the orange groves, but
way bigger! Twenty-five mph for three
weeks all the way to California, going
over mountains, is nuts.
Also in 1999, Mario Cipollini aver-
See NEW, Page 3D


Is the Tour de France the toughest
sporting event of all? Daniel, try not to
get caught up in the hype.
Yes, the tour is an amazing event
and yes, Lance Armstrong has now
become a media darling. He has a
rock-star girlfriend after ending the
marriage with the woman that saw him
through his battle with cancer. Is it
enough to impress a middle-aged guy
like me? Nah.
Keep this in mind: there are contact
sports and non-contact sports. '
Bicycling is a non-contact sport. Js
there risk of' injury? Yes. The crashes
slhopwn in sports highlights couldtiahke
a NASCAR fan cringe.
On the other hand, is anyone out to
knock Lance on his tail as he com-
petes? Imagine yourself lined up at
tailback staring across the line of
scrimmage into the eyes of Ray Lewis,
or better yet Mike Singletary, or best
of all Dick Butkus.
Can you picture Butkus pulling on a
skin-tight yellow jersey and kissing


two spokesmodels at a post-game cere-
mony? It would make your skin crawl.
Remember the Steelers' Jack Lambert
without his teeth? How much would
they have to pay a model to get near

Vicker and Patarini before
Cornuet and Guglielmi won the
final hole of their match against

victory to send things into the
afternoon even at 3-3.
Today's play begins at 8 a.m.
and will feature 12 one-on-one

first team to get to 12 1/2 points
will win the Cup, but the ama-

I can anticipate your next
argument. "I'm talking about
major sports events, not the
Backwoods Blood Blister
Run." Boxing may be the
toughest major sporting event.
It is a challenge to your
endurance and your ability to
endure pain.
Mention "boxing" to guys
your age and they think of
Mike Tyson and all the non-
sense that name brings. Old-
school guys like myself can
remember the first Frazier-Ali
fight in 1971. Two undefeated
fighters went 15 rounds.
Frazier knocked down Ali in
the final round and won the

what about 19 consecutive
days of basketball? Each team
would have to have a roster of
50 guys, and none of this Larry
Brown seven-man rotation
garbage that's right, Darko
would get to play!
The fact that the Tour still
doesn't get a ton of coverage
in America doesn't take away
from it being the toughest
thing an athlete can do. Lance
Armstrong has done a great
job promoting the sport, and it
still has a lot of room for
growth.
But hey, it has come a long
way already: approximately
219,621 miles since its debut.


The thing that sticks with
me the most are the photos of
Frazier after the fight. The bat-
tered face sure did not look
like a winner. Take another
look at Lance and think about
him going 15 rounds with any-
body.
Lance rides a bike very, very
well. He has 21 stages to ride
and, hey Daniel, nine of those
are flat, like Avon Park to Lake
Placid. So it is not all moun-
tains.
How long is Lance actually
on that bike each day?
According to my calculations,
he rides four to five hours per
day. Difficult yes, but the
toughest?
Lastly, in honor of old
school thinkers everywhere, I
will not call an event with the
participants wearing those
skin-tight shorts the toughest
event in sports.

Remembering the perils of rabbit hunting


I love living here in south
central Florida, especially the
mild, mild winters. Where I
grew up, the winters were cold
- sometimes extremely cold
- but I still liked being out-
doors as much as possible. In
the winter, I wanted to rabbit
hunt and was overjoyed when I
got my first shotgun. I was a
teenager and my father finally
decided that I was responsible
enough to handle a firearm
safely.
The shotgun wasn't new. It
wasn't fancy, either.
It was an old single-
barrel, single-shot 12
gauge. The barrel
didn't lock down
real tight and I didn't
realize that could be
dangerous. The shot- *"
gun cost $2, and I
could have gotten a
new one for $6. OUTI
I put that old shot-
gun to good use that Lloyd
winter. No rabbit
was safe when I was
in the woods. I used minimum
loads because I didn't trust the
loose locking barrel. Even
then, it would occasionally spit
fire out of the breech.
A younger brother wanted to
accompany me rabbit hunting
but had no gun, so I borrowed
a .22 rifle and let him use my
shotgun. While hunting on a
neighbor's farm, my dog
chased a rabbit across a fence
onto an adjoining farm. The
lady who owned the adjoining
farm was anti-social. She had
often made it plain that she
wanted nothing to do with
neighbors and no one should
venture onto her farm.
Brother and I decided that
since her house was over on
the other side of a large field,


DETROIT
Continued from 1D
spring, just as he should have
expected Brown would talk to
someone, somewhere about
another coaching job.
Apparently, though, when `
Brown and'Knicks president
Isiah Thomas met, one of two
people in the Pistons front
office blew a fuse.
Owner Bill Davidson, who
also owns the Tampa Bay
Lightning, has a history with
this sort of move, and you
don't have to go far back to
find it.
Two years ago, the Pistons
were coached by Rick Carlisle,
who had become regarded as
perhaps the best young coach
in the league after leading a
resurrection of the franchise
and putting together back-to-
back 50-win seasons. But he
didn't win the affection of
Davidson. So he was offed,
scooped up by Indiana, and
Brown was brought to Detroit.
Either Davidson became
equally irked by Brown, or
there is a significant rift
between what once was the
greatest backcourt in Pistons
history.
In the '80s and '90s,
Thomas was the embodiment
of Detroit sports. Period. Not
only did his gutty play and
resilient willpower define the
first Pistons team to break vise
grip of the Celtics and Lakers
and win a championship, but
his gregarious personality and
radiant smile also made him

we would jump the fence and
try for the rabbit.
What I didn't know was that
my brother had put a high-
powered shell in my old shot-
gun he was using.
The dog brought the rabbit
around close to where we wait-
ed and my brother let go with a
blast from the shotgun and fell
backward. I looked over at him
and his face was bloody. As I
ran to him I could hear the
land owner screaming at us. I
ignored her ratings as I
checked my brother's
condition. He
jumped up and said,
"Let's get outta
here," and we did.
As soon as we and
the dog cleared the
fence, we sat down
to see about his
wound. The old shot-
MORS gun had blown out a
piece of brass from
Jones the shell and nearly
_- severed his right eye-
brow. We finally got
the bleeding stopped while the
irate woman across the fence
kept up a tirade of profanity in
our direction. When we were
well away from her fence and
farm, we could still hear her
verbal spoutings.
Luckily, my brother suffered
no serious injury and I made
sure no heavy loads were ever
put in that gun again.
Incidentally, she kept the
rabbit that my brother killed.

Here is something I just
learned while reading a hunt-
ing magazine. I really didn't
know that sandhill crane hunt-
ing is a common practice in
some states in the central part
of our country. The Federal ,
Migratory Bird Office says


the most recognizable sports
figure from the Motor City.
All the while, Dumars toiled
in relative anonymity, never
quite making the spectacular
plays but playing at an All-Star
level, and defending Michael
Jordan better than anyone else
in the league, an effort which
lifted the Pistons past the Bulls


LLOYD JONES/News-Sun
Hunting sandhill cranes has become a popular sport in other parts
of the country, but is illegal in Florida.


hunting permits for sandhill
cranes shows a steady increase
in the last 10 years in the cen-
tral flyway.
Texas hunters represent
almost 50 percent of the total.
Crane hunting is also becom-
ing popular in New Mexico,
Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas,
Oklahoma, South Dakota and
Wisconsin. Sandhill cranes are
not classified as waterfowl,
making the use of lead shot
legal.
As one writer says, it's a
good thing because most shots
are very long since sandhills
fly high and most cranes don't
survive the fall from their lofty
altitude after being shot.
This is evidently, a new sport
that has become available to
hunters and some of them say
sandhills offer a new chal-

Sandhill crane hunting just
doesn't appeal to me. With a
target that big, I don't see how
you could miss with a 12

As for dining quality, I think
I'll stick to chicken and turkey.
Hunting these large beautiful

by the state of Florida several
years ago and they remain so
today.

SEBRING
S bring High School
will battle abusive
dating with litera-
ture and awareness
this fall.
Sebring High will be one
of only 10 schools in the
nation and the only
school in the state to par-
ticipate in Liz Claiborne's
"Love is Not Abuse" pro-
gram.
"We wanted a diverse
group of schools to test the
program, from rural to
urban areas, to get a better
idea of how the curriculum
plays out to all students,"
said Jane Randall, commu-
nication director at Liz
Claiborne Inc.
Liz Claiborne Inc. spon-
sored a survey by Teenage
Research Unlimited. It
found 73 percent of teens
reported physical violence
in dating is a serious issue.
The same survey stated
57 percent of American
teens know friends who
have experienced physical,
sexual or verbal abuse.
"Dating abuse is very


common on the high school
level and even younger then
that," said Susan Accorsi,
Sebring High health teacher.
"I eagerly said I would par-
ticipate."
Accorsi teaches a life
management class in which
the topic of dating abuse is.
always addressed. She was
contacted by an educational
development company out
of Newton, Mass., and
asked to pilot the program.
The curriculum for "Love
Is Not Abuse" is geared
toward ninth- and 10th-
grade students. Instead of a
traditional format, the pro-
gram uses excerpts from
poetry, short stories, screen-
plays and theatrical plays.
Curriculum
The Education Center, a
private not-for-profit organ-
ization, is developing the
three-lesson curriculum for
the pilot schools. Blaber
said feedback on the pro-
gram will be requested from
the pilot schools.
Their input will be used
to revise the program. She
said by spring, it will avail-
able for all schools that


choose to use, it's free of
charge, on the Liz
Claibome Web site.
The Web site described
the program as "a special
blend of literature and
health education, and will
draw on the motivating
power of literature to help
teenagers build effective
strategies for dealing with
relationship violence and
abuse."
Liz Claiborne Inc.
Liz Claiborne Inc. has
been fighting domestic
abuse against women since
1991. The company's work
started as an effort to give
something back to the
women that purchase its
products.
Recently, Randall said
the company changed its
plan of attack. In an effort
to break the cycle of abuse
as close to its genesis as
possible, it decided to
research abuse in teen rela-
tionships.
The high statistics uncov-
ered pointed to a growing
epidemic among teens that
had largely been ignored
until now.

Supreme Court. If confirmed,
Roberts would replace Sandra
Day O'Connor, who announced
her retirement not too long'ago.
There were two reasons for
the double take. One, I had
heard all day that the person
who was probably going to be
nominated was a woman; and
there is no way I can look at a
name like John and think you
are talking about a gal.
Something incredible
occurred with this announce-
ment Washington managed to
keep a secret for longer than a
nanosecond.
Secondly, it so happens that I
know a man named John
Roberts. He is a wise man, and
does have strong opinions on
certain matters (some of them
having to do with the proper
preparation of popcorn use

World comes to

a halt on axis

Editor:
I am assuming America and
the world awakened this morn-
ing to a new sense of security.
Now that we have developed
a new branch of our armed
services, there is hope for vic-
tory in the middle east.
The once smoldering embers
of a feared defeat has burst
forth into a might thrust of
courage and power, cushioned
by the fluttering of the newly
created Petticoat Brigade. They
now surge forward to soften the
image of George W. Bush and
pave the way to cast this presi-
dent in a light of compassion
and tenderness.
However, the pookiand the ,,,
suffering of Africa wo.'
receive a gift of mondeyrorm
America for the sick and starv-
ing because Bush fears the
leaders of Africa will steal the
gifts. Instead, he has been gen-
erous and kind to send his wife
and two daughters (at taxpay-
ers' expense) to sympathize
with those starving who groan
in agony, those dying of HIV
and AIDS, those whom we
Americans sent diluted medi-
cines to in the past.
A softly spoken word, a ten-
der pat on those whose lives are
slowly ebbing away in pain and
neglect will help to see our
president in a softer, gentler
light.
Condoleezza Rice, our
Secretary of State, a newer
member to have joined the
ranks of the Petticoat Brigade
now charges boldly forward
with her halo of a mushroom


I must admit, I did
a double take when I
learned that President
Bush was nominating
a judge named John
Roberts to the


ence and you are in
0K big trouble). But he
LOOK was never, to my
r knowledge, a judge.
Ware Plus he lives here in
Highlands County,
and Judge Roberts works in
DC, which anyone would admit
is a long commute.
Now that there is an actual
judge nominated for the
Supreme Court, you might
think that people are reacting in
a calm and dignified manner, as
befitting the job. You might
also think that I secretly hate
chocolate and only pretend to
love it, and you'd be just as cor-
rect.
It has been less than 24 hours
since the announcement was
made and already things are
getting quite entertaining.
People are saying all kinds of
things that political junkies like

me find entertaining. One of my
favorites has been from Senator
Ted Kennedy, who intoned that
it was important to know whose
"side" Judge Roberts was on.
Side? The judge was to take
sides? This admittedly caused


now begin
You are dutifully hauled into
court and stand before a judge.
The judge considers your case,
and decides that since people
are allowed to drive on the left
side of the road under certain
international laws, you should
be too, case dismissed.
Doesn't that seem like a silly
way to decide American law?
Yet some people are quite con-
tent to let Supreme Court jus-
tices use exactly this kind of.
reasoning when it comes to
deciding whether or not some-
thing is constitutional. Maybe.
I'm terribly old-fashioned, but
shouldn't the Supreme Court, in
determining, if something is.
constitutional, use something
like the Constitution?
Let's keep these thoughts in
mind as we consider who might
next sit on the court. As the
hearings begin, the first bag of
popcorn is on me.

sweet smiles and a pleading call

love and mercy for all Islam, a

Still some in politics who are not afflicted

selves, and pray
and seek My face, and turn
from their wicked ways, then
will I hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sin and heal
their land."
I was struck by a piece sent
to me recently by a friend, Ken
Boa; struck by its timeliness -
or timelessness although writ-
ten over a century ago by a man
named Alexander Tyler.
"A democracy cannot exist as
a permanent form of govern-
ment. It can only exist until the
voters discover that they can
vote themselves money from
the public treasury. From that
moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates


promising the most
N'S DEN (public) money,
with the result that
lannum a democracy
always collapses
over loose fiscal
policy followed by a dictator-
ship.
"The average age of the
world's great civilizations has
been 200 years. These nations
have progressed through the
following sequence: from
bondage to spiritual faith, from
spiritual faith to great courage,
from courage to liberty, from
liberty to abundance, from
abundance to selfishness, from
selfishness to complacency,
from complacency to apathy,
from apathy to dependence,
from dependence back to
bondage."
Ancient Israel was no excep-
tion to this principle. They kept


straying from their faith, falling
into bondage, despairing over
the resulting suffering, appeal-
ing to God, being bailed out
(see above) and repeating the
cycle.
As I think of the course of
this great land of ours I wonder
if we can be perceptive enough
and resolute enough to be the
exception. Not, I think, the way
we are going. We are choking
on entitlements.
It seems to me that the germs
of decline began their infection
as men, already secure in their
own private capacities, who had
entered public service as a
patriotic duty, usually consider-
ing it a temporary contribution,
were gradually replaced by pro-
fessionals. In short, when
statesmen were supplanted by
politicians.
Politics can still be an honor-


'Many Americans do not support making our

schools laboratories of freedom and expression.

That's why we have so many schools that teach

about citizenship and freedom in an atmosphere of

repression.'

able profession, but as a form of.
livelihood and a vehicle of
influence it is potentially con-
fronted with a most powerful'
conflict of interest: the per-.
ceived need to place whatever"
is necessary to remain in office
ahead of the public good and
thus succumbing to the Siren
song of career over duty.
Happily, there are still some in
politics not so afflicted.
For those of us not in poli-
tics, our duty lies in avoiding
lodging selfish demands to
tempt those in office to act
against better judgment, living
Christ and praying to our God
for this dear land.

my eyebrows to crawl up into
my hair line because I thought
judges were not supposed to
take sides. I thought they were
supposed to listen to both sides
of a case impartially and then
make a decision based on the
Constitution and what it says.
There is only one side for a
Supreme Court Justice the
side of the Constitution.
Of course, I type this well
aware that some Supreme Court
Justices have felt the need to
consult other sources than the
Constitution to decide what is
Constitutional. That sounds like
an oxymoron as I type it, but it
is true. For those who have no
problem with the concept, let
me give you a ridiculous exam-
ple on why relying on, for
example, international law to
determine whether something is
or is not constitutional is, to put
it mildly, idiotic.
Let's say that you take it into
your head to drive on the left
side of U.S. 27 instead of the
right side (I know some of you
have done this anyway, I've
