Elizabeth A. "Libbee" Combee feels
far more comfortable talking about
her son's battle against methamphet-
amine than her own.
She shares her story in hopes people can
learn from someone who has been there.
Combee runs a faith-based addiction
recovery program in Bartow called Mothers
Against Methamphetamine, part of Leland
Family Ministries.
A lot of people don't start using.meth
until they are in their 30s or 40s, Combee
said. It is done for the same reasons people
start smoking or drinking.
"You do it to escape something,"
Combee said. "Sin is sin, regardless of
what it is."
Some use it because their parents did,
Combee said, "just like my son."
Combee was born in 1963 in Gainesville.
Her parents divorced when she was 3. Her


mother moved her and her itwo siblings to
Mississippi. Three .e.iis later. unable to
care for them, she left them iat sitte
orphanage.
Combee has little memory of that time.
except how the orphanage seemed like a
jail.
"No one told me rn, life could be difter-

VOLUME 8/NUMBER 47


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - There still are
some blue roofs and pushed
over trees in Highlands County,
yet for some people it is diffi-
cult to believe that it was a year
ago that Hurricane Charley
roared through the area.
For many it was a wake-up
call and changed forever the
way most residents looked at
the way they would prepare and
respond to the big storms.
Highlands County
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols said final
estimates from the first of what
turned out to be three hurri-


Adding


canes was set at $25 million for
Highlands County.
After 'most projections that
Charley would come ashore
around Tampa, Charley made
landfall on Aug. 13, 2004, at
Charlotte Harbor in Charlotte
County as a Category 4 hurri-
cane.
It was the strongest hurricane
to strike the area since
Hurricane Donna in 1960, and
the strongest hurricane to strike
Florida since Hurricane Andrew
in 1992.
Despite warnings from long-
time residents who had lived
through the ravages of Donna,
many people went about their


day-to-day lives as Charley
headed toward landfall
ThIere were"not many "vho

In fact, even as the big storm
set its sights on the west coast
of Florida -there still were peo-
ple shopping in stores and trav-
eling around.
Meanwhile, county officials
were getting prepared. State,
county and municipal offices
were shut down, schools were
closed, even the garbage pickup
scheduled for that Friday were
put off as residents were cau-
tioned to clean up their yards.
Three shelters were opened,

" Man\ b us'inesse s released
their employees early that fate-

storm, which was scheduled to
arrive in Highlands County by
the late afternoon hours.
Even at noon there were dark
skies and blowing winds. The
intensity continued to grow
until by 5 p.m. the winds had
reached the level where emer-
gency ,service personnel would
no longer be dispatched
because it would be too danger-
ous for the vehicles to be on the,
road.
There were an estimated


1,000 people in the various
county shelters when the orders
were given to residents to "stay
put."
The Highlands County
Office of Emergency
Communications had no way of
measuring wind gusts because
their wind indicators had previ-
ously been taken out by a light-
ning strike. However, they esti-

county with sustained winds of

Estrada makes cut


for seat on 10th


Judicial Circuit


* By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Another
Highlands County resident
soon could be a sitting judge
on the 10th Judicial Circuit
along with judges David
Langford and Olin
Shinholser.
In a letter earlier this week,
10th Judicial Nominating
Commission Chairman G.
Gregory King informed
Highlands County Judge
Peter F. Estrada that he had
made the first cut to be con-
sidered for one of four avail-
able seats.
In all, eight of the 25 origi-
nal applicants made it to the
short list. Now it will be up to
Governor Jeb Bush to make
the appointments.
The Florida Legislature
actually created four new
judicial positions for the cir-
cuit which serves Highlands,
Hardee and Polk counties.
There will be two received


by November in the circuit
with two more to be received
in January.
Estrada was interviewed by
the eight-member nominating
commission Tuesday mom-
ing.
The judge said due to
restrictions, he could not

the interview.
He now
will go for a
second inter-
view. That
will be in
Tallahassee, ESTRADA
however,
Estrada said he was not cer-
tain when it might be held.
After the appointments are
made, it will be up to the
office of 10th Judicial Circuit
Chief Judge Ronald A.
Herring as to where the seats
would be allocated.

SEBRING - Auto
Tuners and bubble gum

Cruise on the Circle in
Downtown Sebring.
"We have a lot of folks

This time around,
Williams has invited a
number of "Tuners" to

The music starts at 5
p.m. with the cruise going
until about 9 p.m. For

Sun 'N Lake still without manager, supervisor


Board split on
replacing supervisor
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The board of
supervisors at Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring Improvement District
have two vacancies to fill, if
they can agree on people to fill
the slots.
The supervisors want to hire
their own general manager in
place of Bill Neron, the general
manager employed by Severn
Trent Services. They also need
to replace Supervisor Larry
Bertetto, who resigned from the
board at the beginning of
August.
On Wednesday, they nomi-
nated and voted on two candi-
dates for the vacant supervisor


position: John Clark, who
served on the board for eight
years, and Frank Guglielmi, a
Sun 'N Lake resident for the
last six years.
Supervisors Marvin Fischer
and Robert Severino favored
Clark. McHale and Chairman
Bob Schaeffer favored
Guglielmi. John Negley of
Florida Hospital, another for-
mer board member, was also
nominated, but is ineligible. He
no longer owns property in Sun
'N Lake.
Clark was willing to serve
again, and cited his engineering
and World War II U.S. Navy
service, as well having lived in
the district since 1977 as quali-
fications.
Guglielmi, a former engineer
with General Motors, considers
Sun 'N Lake to be one of the


most progressive communities
in Florida. He would like to
help resolve some of the dis-
trict's government issues, but
has reservations about serving,
calling the current board dis-
jointed.
"Whoever gets the appoint-
ment has his hands full,"
Guglielmi said.
Sun 'N Lake resident Rex
Bond said the property owners
should get to vote on the vacant
seat, since Bertetto was a popu-
larly-elected supervisor. John
K. McClure, district attorney,
said the charter allows the
remaining supervisors to fill the
slot themselves with nomina-
tions.
The charter states that, "If
any vacancy occurs in a seat
occupied by a supervisor elect-
ed by the qualified electors, the

Harder Hall ironing out



local and state approvals


.'t


By RACHEL PEACOCK
News-Sun
The Sebring Historic
Preservation Commission
found Harder Hall's certificate
of appropriateness outdated, but
its restoration on track for the
former 1920s hotel.
The current certificate was
issued over a year ago under the
same owner, Mark Shenker, but
by a different project manager,
commission member Gary
Puckett said. Therefore, the
board requested the current
developers, Pat and Kevin
Taylor, draw up a new certifi-
cate for their approval.
"It is an architectural review
to ensure the historic character
of the building is protected,"
Peter Pollard, executive direc-
tor of the Community
Redevelopment Agency, said.
The Taylors agreed and plan
to submit it, along with the
information still needed to
receive the 20 percent tax cred-
it from the state, to the board as
soon as possible.
"The same minor changes
being added to the COA (cer-
tificate) are being added to the
tax credit," Pat Taylor said.
The project is eligible for the
tax break because Harder Hall
is registered as a national his-
toric site. The.tax credit is used
as an incentive by the state to
maintain the historical integrity
of such buildings.
Kevin Taylor said there is no


deadline for the forms, but "the
faster the better."
To receive their tax credit,
the renovations must be found
in compliance with the federal
guidelines of the Secretary of
Interior Standard for Historic
Preservation.
If not turned in, they may be
doing work that isn't in compli-
ance with the state, which
would forfeit their substantial
tax credit.
. "This will be the largest proj-
ect of this type,
with tax credit,
the city of
Sebring has
ever seen," A
Pollard said,
adding he sus-
pects the
developers will PUCKETT
do everything
possible to comply.
Commissioner Mark Stewart
toured the hotel prior to the
meeting and reported his find-
ings to the preservation board.
"I saw nothing that stood out
as being against the wishes of
this board," Stewart said at the
meeting.
At the end of the meeting,
Pat Taylor took the rest of the
board on a tour of the hotel.
Wearing hard hats, they
inspected the partially complet-
ed renovations in the midst of
construction crews.
Going down the list of the
current certificate with Lorrie


Smith, board chairwoman, Pat
Taylor pointed out all of the
"conflicting" changes. The big
differences were the lobby
flooring, the three door front
entrance, the position of the
front desk and the demolition of
the boiler room in the south
wing.
In the hotel lobby, marble tile
will be laid over the original
flooring. The board approved
the three-door front entrance,
but the state said it wasn't in
compliance. Pat Taylor said
they are waiting for approval to
move ahead.
If the board approves the new
certificate, it plans to help
negotiate with the state in favor
of the entrance.
The board approved develop-
ets to knpck down the broiler
room and reconstruct a health
club and spa in its place. Pat
Taylor said he doesn't expect
that to be finished until after the
hotel is opened.
The project's goal of comple-
tion for the primary renova-
tions, according to Taylor, is
this February. But, he also
acknowledged the goal is
extremely optimistic.
Puckett resigned as a com-
missioner on the board due to a
conflict in interests. The board
is accepting resumes from
applicants wishing to fill the
vacancy.
Puckett is a former Harder
Hall project manager.


remaining members of the
board of supervisors shall,
within 45 days after the vacan-
cy occurs, appoint a person who
would be eligible to hold the
office to the unexpired term."
Rusty Carino, chairman of
the Coalition for Better
Government, a local watchdog
group, told the News-Sun he
would like to see the supervi-
sors bring in someone who will
review the contracts with
Severn Trent, and with National
Recreational Properties Inc. He
believes the district has given
away too much power in its
contracts.
As for the new manager,
supervisors have no nomina-
tions.
Criteria for hiring a new
manager, as developed by


McHale, included a degree in
business administration, public
administration, marketing,
engineering or related fields
from an accredited four-year
college or university.
McHale also suggested an
applicant have "considerable
experience" in an administra-
tive management position, an
understanding of real estate
marketing concepts, strong
leadership skills and willing-
ness to follow the board's lead.
Salary would range from
$75,000 to $83,000 per year.
McClure advised Schaeffer
to take a vote on the qualifica-
tions. Schaeffer rejected that
advice, saying the other super-
visors approve because they
had no comments on the quali-
fications.


County to require frontage

roads, but only as needed


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County's development regula-
tions call for frontage roads for
new developments on U.S. 27
and the Sebring Parkway.
However, county commis-
sioners decided Tuesday they
would rather set such roads up
only as needed, and not plan
them ahead of time.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said the county
requires big developments to
have frontage roads as part of
the concurrency requirement.
Any development that will
increase traffic on an adjacent
or nearby road will have to pay
for improvements to that road
to deal with that traffic, before
the county will issue a drive-
way permit.
Frontage roads will prevent
having a driveway every 200
feet on a major highway,
Gavarrete said.


This will happen during the
development review process,
before the county issues build-
ing and other permits.
Commissioners decided to take
this stance six or seven years
ago, said Commissioner Guy
Maxcy, and it seems to be
working fine right now.
Owners of smaller parcels
may not have to build frontage
roads - and lose half of their
property, Maxcy said. They
may have to connect with adja-
cent parking lots to create traf-
fic flow between businesses;
however.
"If it's done right, it works,"
Gavarrete said.
It makes good traffic sense,
he said, but if it's not required,
developers won't do it.
A broken-up frontage road is
not as effective, Gavarrete said.
The county can also use
"backage" roads - running
behind properties, Commis-
sioner Bob Bullard said.

Brown charged with burglary, grand theft


LAKE PLACID -
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies made an arrest last
week in a burglary case dating
back to the beginning of July.
They charged Taubreena Ann
Brown, 18, of Lake Placid,
under warrants for burglary of a
business and grand theft. Bail
was set at $2,000.
On July 5, Brown was work-
ing with another waitress at
Jaxson's Restaurant. Each one
had their own personal identifi-
cation code to open the register.
At some time during the night,
the second waitress was busy
and gave her code to Brown in
order to cash out some cus-
tomers.
At about 10 p.m. July 5, the
second waitress closed and
locked the back doors, leaving a
male employee inside to close


the front doors. Brown, who
had already left, returned, had
access to the keys, and was left
alone inside for a short time.
After that, everyone left.
The next day at 6 a.m., the
opening shift discovered no
money in the registers, which
normally have $200 in .cash for
the start of the day. There was
no sign of forced entry and all
doors were locked.
A computer audit showed
that the identification number
of the second waitress from the
night shift was used to open the
registers the night before, and
approximately $800 was
removed.
When questioned, that wait-
ress said she didn't return after
leaving and went straight home
to Sebring.

KIDS PLAYING OUTSIDE

WITHOUT A CELL PHONE

OR LAWSUIT


AVON PARK - We survived even
though many mothers smoked and drank while
they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese
dressing and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after
that trauma, our baby cribs were covered uith bright
colored lead-based paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine b,:,tles,
doors or cabinets and when we rde our, btkes t\e
had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we tok
hitchhiking. As children, we would ride in cars with
no seat belts orairbags. Riding in the back oa pickup
on a warm day was always a spec ial treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and NOT
from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four
friends, flom onebottle and no oneactually died from
this. We ate cupcakes, bread and butter and drank
soda pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight
because WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!
We would leave home in the morning and play
all day, as long as %e were back when the streetlights
came on. Noone \vas able to reach us all day, and we
were OK We would spend hours building go cans
out of scraps of wood and then 6ide down the hill,
only to find out \we forgot the brakes. After running
into the bushes a few times, we learned to sole the
problem.
We had no Plastations, Nintendo's, X-boxes,
no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no
DVD) movies, no surnotnd sound, no cell phones, no
personal computer; no iltellet or interest I hat roitnm.
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found
them!
We fell out of tees, got cut, broke bones and teeth
and there were no lawsuits hr',m these accidents. We
made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate
worms and although we were told it would happen,
we did not put out many eves, nor did the wonnrms live
in us forever.
We iode bikes or walked to a friend' house and
knocked on the door or rang the bell or just walked
in and talked to them. Little League had tilNotmLs and
not ewet.one made the team. Those w\%ho didn't had
to learn to deal with disappoinunent, Imagine that.
This generation has produced some of the best
risk-takers, problem solves and imentois ever: The
past 50 years hawe seen an explosion of innovation
and new ideas. Congratulations if you are pan o that
remarkable generation.
One business that has stuived, been innovative
and successful through these years is Wels Dodle

Subsidized senior housing going up behind HRMC


By BARRY FOSTER

SEBRING - Many people
have been watching the large

Highlands Regional Medical
Center on U.S. 27.
Known as The Groves at

to be named in January would
be divided between Jimmy
Ryce cases and first degree
murder cases.
Herring said the 10th circuit

The facility will have 62 one-

Estrada, who formerly
worked for the office of State
Attorney Jerry Hill, applied for
the county judgeship in 2002,
when Shinholser was tapped for
a seat on the 10th Judicial
Circuit Court bench.
It was Estrada's first applica-
tion for a judgeship and he was
appointed.
As a circuit court judge,
Estrada would have jurisdiction
as far as civil matters above

"That would involve such
things as a suit involving per-

"I came to know God

said.
One night she was hiding in
her closet, reading the Bible
,and smoking meth all night

"I could not do it on my

She believes now that God

While the process continues,
Estrada said he has been busy

"I've been conducting first
appearances, took some pleas
and heard' some bond motions.
I've just been doing what they
elected me to do," he said.

radically intermittent or com-
pletely inoperable.
Highlands County was aided
by the Amateur Radio
Emergency Service, with mem-
bers being pressed into service
to provide local governmental
communications.
By Saturday morning, the
storm damage was described as
- ;-,,. ii


rate was not based only on
Highlands County's median,
but also ranged over other
counties in the immediate
region.
"That takes in other areas and
brings the numbers down,
which makes it more favorable
for seniors," Clark said. "They
can come in with less income
and gives a wider range of peo-
ple."
The project is being put
together by the Maryland-based
Osprey Property Company and
Regency Advisors
International, which have
extensive experience public and
private financing.
The Groves at Victoria Park
was awarded Federal Low
Income Housing Tax Credits to
help finance its construction.
The tax credit program started
in 1988 and allows entities to


the county's "newest tourist
attraction" with residents trav-
eling about to see what kind of
chaos the big storm had
wrought and determining where
they might obtain supplies.
There were trees uprooted
and fallen across roadways, and
some of the boats on Lake
Jackson had been pushed out of
the water and set upon the
shore.
While crews continued to
clear the rights of way, there
were residents who pulled out
their chainsaws and started to
do some clearing of their own.
Some supermarkets and
other stores opened up, allow-
ing residents to purchase dry
goods and ice as long as it was
available. Because they had no
electricity to run their cash reg-
isters, most of the retail transac-
tions were done on a cash basis.
Many of the gas stations also
remained closed. With no elec-
tricity there were no pumps to
get fuel out of the ground.
When some stations did get
generator power they were
greeted by long lines of hopeful
motorists looking to fill their
tanks.


buy and sell tax credits, which
pay for the costs to residents of
the project.
"Using this program, we've
been able to build nearly 1,000
senior housing units," Clark
said. "Those credits allow us to
greatly reduce the rent."
In the case of The Groves at
Victoria Park, the tax credits are
awarded by the state to Osprey
Properties, which then sells
them to third-party "syndica-
tors." They then turn around
and sell them to large corpora-
tions and others wanting tax
relief.
"The syndicators can sell the
credits to General Motors, for
instance, or whoever wants to
buy them," Clark said.
Overall, those who purchase
the credits will receive a dis-
count on the taxes they do pay.
For details, call 385-8460.


Home model generators were
also a big seller. The Home
Depot sold out quickly, with
other entrepreneurs bringing
them in by the trailer load for
residents eager to restore their
creature comforts.
In fact, local stores sold out
quickly of commodities such as
tarps, screens, bottled water and
propane.
Residents pulled out their
camping and picnic gear, with
some living out of their recre-
ational vehicles in the after-
math.
In an effort to control the
possibility of looting, local gov-
ernments enacted curfews to
keep people off the streets dur-
ing the nighttime hours.
Even as the cleanup contin-
ued, streams of electric compa-
ny and other personnel
streamed into the area to help
restore utility service. The con-
voys of trucks were quickly
dubbed "Charley's Angels."
There was one death attrib-
uted to Charley. A man that suf-
fered a heart attack due to heat-
related stress.

Estate sales turn a pastime into a business


Women find homes for
things other people
have left behind
By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun Correspondent
Two good friends have turned
their favorite pastime into a
thriving weekend business.
For years, Priscilla Michalak
and Jenny Gibbs spent their weekends
hunting for treasures at garage sales and
flea markets. Now they conduct estate
and moving sales for people who have
lost a loved one or are moving and feel
overwhelmed by the need to dispose of
an entire household full of furniture and
personal possessions.
Four years ago, an attorney who knew
of their interests asked if they would
coordinate an estate sale in Avon Park.
The family of the deceased lived up
north and had no one in Florida to dis-
pose of the property.
"It was a nice mobile home in a retire-
ment park," Michalak recalled. "The
neighbors were all elderly people and
everyone came to the sale. They took a
liking to us. Some of them brought us
things to eat and stayed with us all day.
We still remember this sale as being the
most fun."
Once they discovered how much they
enjoyed the selling part of the business,
they established B.C. & J. Services,
which stands for Butch, Cookie and
Jenny. "Butch" is Daniel Michalak,
Priscilla's husband. He helps the ladies
with heavy lifting, sorting and evaluat-
ing tools and some of the cleanup work.
"I always ask him to help clean up the
garage," Michalak admitted. "Cookie"
is her nickname.
In the beginning, most of their busi-
ness came from referrals from attorneys
who were settling estates.
"We both work with attorneys all day
long, so a lot of them know us,"
Michalak explained.
Michalak is the director of the Civil
Division at the Highlands County Clerk
of Courts in Sebring, where she has
worked for 19 years.


PATRICIA C. POND/News-Sun
Jenny Gibbs (left) and Priscilla 'Cookie' Michalak, share a laugh with James Bell of
Sebring at a recent moving sale in Avon Park. 'We enjoy this work because we meet so
many nice people,' Michalak said.


Gibbs is the office manager and legal
secretary for James W. Kelly, P.A., in
Avon Park, where she has worked for 18
years.
Both women reside in Sebring.
They now also receive requests for
their services from Realtors and many
people who know them through their
sales.
"When people come to one of our
sales, they like the way we set it up,"
Michalak said.
It takes at least one or two weekends
just to prepare for a sale, depending on
the size and condition of the house and
the amount of its contents.
"If the house needs cleaning, we clean
it. If the owner is still in the home, we
advise which items should be thrown
away before we set up the sale. When we
tell someone to lih,'' it away, we know
it is'junk. "And we don'i sell junk!"'
Michalak said emphatically.
All of the contents are organized in


groups: glassware, linens, kitchenware
and holiday decorations. Tables are
brought in to display small knickknacks
and set up with walking spaces that
allow customers to browse easily.
"We had one large estate sale that took
us four weekends just to gel ready. Then
we spent two more weekends - a total of
four days - just selling."
Gibbs remembers those six weekends
with pleasure. "It felt like I got to know
this lady through. her possessions. She
must have loved to square dance, we
found 50 square dance outfits. She had
beautiful wigs, make-up, false eyelash-
es, all kinds of glamorous things."
In the closet they found 300 pairs of
shoes and more than 300 dresses, all
with the tags still on.
"I asked the woman's sister, our
client, why so many clothes had never
been worn. She told me that this woman
had never had anything when she was
young, not even a decent pair of shoes.


When she married and she and her hus-
band eventually had money, she went
out and bought and bought. She just
wanted to have the things she never had
as a child. I never met her, but I could
tell from her things that she was a classy
lady," Gibbs said.
When it comes to pricing, Michalak
and Gibbs have had plenty of experience
both as shoppers and, now, as sales man-
agers. In addition, Gibbs literally grew
up in the business, as her father owns
and operates a large flea market in
Ashland, Ky., where she was born.
"Daddy is 76 years old and he still has
the flea market. He has 100 booths
inside and 100 booths outside. I've
known the business for a long time."
Michalak adds: "Our customers trust
us because we know what the market is.
We have developed a good following.
People know when they see our ad for a
B.C. & J. Services sale, we will have
quality things at a good price."
Both women agree that they enjoy
conducting the sales more for the people
than for the money.
"It's a very rewarding job because we
meet so many nice people. We see the
same people again and again and have
made many new friends," Michalak said.
She added that she always brings a
box of stuffed animals to each sale, so
that when little children come with their
parents, she can give them a toy. "It
makes it more fun for them."
"We enjoy this work," Gibbs said.
"We do it as much as a service as a busi-
ness. When people have lost a loved one,
it upsets them to go into the house and
go through all their things. We do it for
them and they really seem to appreciate
it."
B.C. & J. Services donates all unsold
merchandise to charities, if the heirs or
owners agree. The owner may designate
a favorite charity. If not, Michalak and
Gibbs will box up the items and call for
pickup. Charities in the Highlands
County area can contact B.C. & J.
Services if they would like to receive
donations.
For details, call Michalak at 382-1347
or Gibbs at 471-1582.

National sex offender Web site


to make job easier for deputies


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Every day,
Detective Tom Ouverson with
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office Crime Scene
Investigations unit, along with
other deputies, deals with sexu-
al offenders.
He knocks on doors to
inform residents of a sexual
offender living nearby, or he
visits those on the offender list
once or twice a month to make
sure their current address is the
same one listed with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
That job may begin to get
easier. On July 28, the U.S.
Justice Department activated an
Internet site called National Sex
Offender Public Registry at
http://www.nsoprgov.
The Web site gives all states
and territories a new public
safety resource by sharing com-
prehensive public sex offender
information with citizens, for
free. With a single Internet
search, the site searches public
state and territory sex offender
registries to deliver matched
results based on a name, state,
county, city, or zip code.
States that already link to the
site are Arizona, Colorado,
Delaware, District of
Columbia, Florida, Hawaii,
Idaho, Illinois, Kansas,


Kentucky, Louisiana,
Maryland, Nebraska, New
Jersey, Nevada, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,
Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and
Wisconsin.
The remaining public sex
offender registries are expected
to be linked to the site within
six months.
One of the most immediate
effects of this new site is that
anyone, with a few clicks, can
get information on what sexual
predators live not only near
them but in other areas of the
country.
There are more than 500,000
registered sex offenders nation-
wide. The Justice Department
reports that the recidivism rate
for these offenders is high.
Officials at the Justice
Department should help citi-
zens identify sex offenders
beyond their own streets or
neighborhoods.
The other improvement is
making Ouverson job easier. He
and other deputies can get near-
ly instant information on any
sexual offender who moves into
the county or the state. It will
also save time, either identify-
ing sexual offenders or clearing
a person of that suspicion.
When deputies pick up a per-
son for failing to register as a
sexual offender, they have to
take photographs, fingerprints,


and personal information. All of
that is sent to another state 'or
county to verify the person's
identity, or the other law
enforcement agencies send that
information here. This Web site
will speed up that process,
Ouverson said.
Another benefit is that it cir-
cumvents differences in state
laws regarding sexual offend-
ers.
Before, when sexual offend-
ers visited or moved to another
state, they were'not always con-
sidered sexual offenders.
Florida's law for notification is
on anyone who has a conviction
or probation after October
1997. Connecticut's cutoff
point, for example, goes back
20 years, Ouverson said.
He uses Connecticut because
a person recently released from
sanctions in Florida moved to
Connecticut and found himself
right back under sanctions.
"You can get in trouble if you
don't know," Ouverson said.
Under the new rules, that
person's new status should be
honored in any of the other 49
states, Ouverson said. The same
would hold true if a registered
sexual offender moved to
Florida from Connecticut.
Florida authorities would be
obliged to recognize his or her
sexual offender status, even
though it would pre-date 1997.

'Le Tour d'Vineyards'


will take place Saturday


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Residents of
Highlands County can tour
area vineyards on Saturday as
members of the Highlands
County Grape Growers
Association host the fifth
annual "Le Tour
d'Vineyards."
This year's self-guided tour
will stop at six operations -
the Grape Arbor Vineyard,
Dan's Instant Vineyard, the
vineyards of Jerry and Ellie
Million, Cardinal Vineyards,
Henscratch Farms and The
Grapes of Kath.
For a time each operation
will be open to accept visitors
and show off their operations.
The leisurely affair will give
hosts more time to talk with
individuals about grape-grow-
ing techniques.
The tour will begin at 10
a.m. at the Grape Arbor
Vineyard, owned by Dan and
Ann Young, on Blueberry
Road in Sebring. They may be
contacted at 385-1466.
Dan's Instant Vineyard will
be the second tour stop at 11.
Owner Dan Dushane began
the vineyard by carefully
transplanting mature vines. As
a result, the vines began pro-
ducing fruit in a matter of
months instead of several
years. His number is 386-
0272.
Some of the county's oldest
vines can be seen at the home
of Jerry and Ellie Million,
starting at 11:30. Jerry Million
is widely credited as being one
of the founders of the
Highlands County Grape
Growers Association. He
brought some of his vines
from Putnam County. His
number is 382-4944.
Possibly the best-known
stop is Henscratch Farms, the
county's only licensed winery,
on Henscratch Road in Lake
Placid. Its tours begin at 12:30
p.m. For details, call 699-
2060.

Award-winning winemaker

on wine making throughout
the day. His number is 655-

arbor. Owners Kathy and
Roger Giller will show how an
attractive display of grapes
can also be functional.
Along with showing their
vineyards, some of .tihe owners
i:


have products to sell as well.
The Youngs and the
Leonards operate you-pick
operations. Henscratch Farms
wells grape products, wine,
produce and farm-fresh eggs,
and the Gillers sell grape
products and winemaking
equipment.

Highlands Little Theatre still


doing auditions for 'Hoodwinked'


SEBRING - Highlands
Little Theatre will be doing the
musical farce "Hoodwinked"
and auditions will be Aug. 13
and 15.
Audition times are 10 a.m. to
noon and 1-3 p.m. for Aug. 13
and 6 p.m. for Aug. 15.
Cast requirements include
three females, one between
ages 20 and 30, and two
between 30 and 60. Eight
males are also needed, four
between 20 and 30, and four
between 30 and 60.
"Hoodwinked" approaches
the Robin Hood legend through
a very different viewpoint as
Robin and his famous band
come face-to-face with some
very liberated women. When
the Sheriff of Nottingham and
his Henchmen capture Maid
Marian for the umpteenth time,
such plots and ploys as Tuck's
Confession Concession and a
strike by the Nottingham
Hangman's Local ensue. Here
is a show for all of those men

Youth Safety

Clinic scheduled

for Tuesday
SEBRING - Children, ages
kindergarten through teens, can
learn how to be safe at a Youth
Safety Clinic at 7 p.m. Tuesday,
at the Knights of Columbus
Hall, 900 U.S. 27 N. (across
from the Lakeshore Mall).
This is an opportunity for
children to learn what to do if
they are approached by some-
one older who wants to do
something unnatural to them.
This clinic will educate them
about how to avoid abuse, mis-
treatment and kidnapping. The
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office and Sebring Police
Department will teach the clin-
ic.
Parents are invited. Light
refreshments will be served.
This clinic is free.

Judge Roberts
records
scrutinized
Associated Press
WASHINGTON -
Supreme Court nominee John
Roberts advised then-high
court nominee Sandra Day
O'Connor in 1981 to stand
firm in her insistence not to
talk about specific court cases
like Roe v. Wade, saying it
could bring up impropriety
and possibly disqualification
issues later.Associated Press
Writer
In documents released by
the National Archives
Thursday, Roberts - then
special assistant to Attorney
General William French
Smith and assigned to help
O'Connor through her confir-
mation process - wrote
O'Connor to rebut a universi-
ty professor's memo.
The memo argued that sen-
ators can only determine a
nominee's views through ask-
ing specific questions about
specific cases. Answering
those questions would not put
a justice in danger of having
to be disqualified from hear-
ing future cases on that sub-
ject if it was made clear that
the nominee was not promis-
ing to vote one way or the
other, the memo said.
That theory should be
rejected, Roberts said.
"The suggestion that a sim-
ple understanding that no
promise is intended when a
nominee answers a specific
question will completely
remove the disqualification
question is absurd," Roberts
wrote to O'Connor in a Sept.
9 letter. "The appearance of
impropriety still remains."
- Roberts has been nominat-
ed by President Bush to
replace O'Connor on the
Supreme Court this fall, and
senators are jockeying over
whether he should answer
specific questions os on abortion,
affirmative action, school
prayer and capital punish-
Sment.
Following the advice she
heard, O'Connor refused to
talk to senators about specific
cases and was confirmed by
the Senate.

Boy sentenced
for strangling
8-year-old
Associated Press
CARROLLTON, Ga. - A
boy who strangled his neigh-
bor when he was 12 and she
was 8 was sentenced
Thursday to an indefinite stay
in a residential center to get
treatment for behavioral disor-
ders, depression and anger
management.
It will be up to center offi-
cials to decide how long to
keep the boy, Judge Daniel
Camp ruled. After the treat-
ment, the boy, now 14, will be
on probation for six months.
Amy Yates disappeared
after a bicycle ride in April
2004. Her body was found in
a gully five hours later. After
questioning residents of the
Twin Oaks Mobile Home
Park where Yates disappeared,
authorities arrested a 12-year-
old home-schooled neighbor
in her death.


Under Georgia law, thie boy
is in the juvenile court system.
The maximum jail time he
could have received was two
years, and lie's already spent
15 months behind bars. The
boy's case was adjudicated
last month before a trial and
his sentence to a residential
treatment center will allow
him to be kept under state
supervision longer.
Under the sentence, the
boy's is to undergo treatment
for up to a year, with the
allowance that center officials
could keep him longer if they
choose. The judge did not say
how much longer the center
could keep him


Ambulance
worker charged
with killing
co-worker
Associated Press
LEBANON, Va. - A for-
mer emergency medical work-
er who allegedly used a car-
diac defibrillator on a co-
worker, causing a deadly
shock, has been indicted on a
manslaughter charge.
Joshua Phillip Martin, 24,
is free on bond until his trial,
scheduled for Dec. 14. Martin
could face up to 20 years in
prison if convicted.
Prosecutors said Martin
used the device on Courtney
Hilton Rhoton on June 1.
placing it on her side and giv-
ing her an electric shock.
Defibrillators are used to
restart a patient's heart
through an electric current.
Rhoton died three days
later in a hospital. A prelimi-
nary autopsy report listed the
cause of death as electric
shock. ;
While Russell County
Commonwealth's Attorney
Michael Bush declined
Thursday to state the circum-
stances that led to Rhoton's"
death, he said "the very nature
of involuntary manslaughter is
the accidental killing of
another through negligence."
Bush said the two were not
on an emergency call at the
time.


Attorney General releases 'SafeSteps' booklet for kids


AVENTURA - Attorney
General Charlie Crist today
joined with Florida Marlin All-
Star Outfielder Miguel Cabrera
and Macy's Florida Vice-
Chairman David Scheiner to
release a comprehensive par-
ent's guide for protecting chil-
dren from predators.
The Attorney General and
Macy's teamed up to create the
booklet with the assistance of
the National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children.
Officially titled "SafeSteps to
Protect Florida's Children, A
Parent's Guide to Online
Safety, Child Abduction and
Runaway Issues" the guide was
provided through Macy's sup-
port. Macy's has further com-
mitted to continue to work with
Crist on promoting child safety
by making SafeSteps available
in all of its stores throughout
Florida. The booklet will also
be available online at the
Attorney General's Web site at
littr://miifloridaegal.coin.
SafeSteps covers a number of
important issues including tips
on children and computer use, a
glossary of terms used by chil-
dren on the Internet, and recom-
mendations for keeping chil-
dren safe from different types
of threats.
"Nothing is more important
than protecting our children,"
said Crist. "Florida is honored
that an outstanding corporate
citizen such as Macy's and a
role model such as Miguel
Cabrera have lent their prestige
and joined us in such an impor-
tant cause. They are outstanding
partners."


"Our children are Florida's
most precious resource and
everyone associated with
Macy's wants to do his and her
part as an advocate to ensure
their safety,' said David
Scheiner, vice chairman direc-
tor of Stores for Macy's
Florida. "We are proud to add
our name and our resources to
those of Attorney General Crist
and Miguel Cabrera as we work
together to achieve such an
important and worthwhile
goal."
Cabrera has demonstrated a
commitment to giving back to
the community and state where
he has become so successful.
This includes highlighting the
need to keep Florida's children
safe from predators.
"If I can help prevent even
one child from being harmed,
then it will feel better than any
play I can make on the baseball
field," said Cabrera. "1I know
that some of the kids look up to
me and I want to set a good
example for them. Hopefully,
by participating in raising the
awareness of these safety
issues, they will pay closer
attention."
The SafeSteps booklet is
another tool provided by Crist
in his ongoing effort to promote
child safety, particularly in lieu
of the horrific crimes which
have been perpetrated on
Florida's most vulnerable over
the recent past.
Throughout the past year the
Attorney General's office
worked closely with Florida's
largest school districts to put on
more than two dozen F,. f,.i


Columbus, Ohio-based compa-
ny. "That demands a continuing
evaluation of our business strat-
egy.
The decision applies to poli-
cies covering single-family
houses, condominiums, mobile
homes and boats. The company
will continue to sell auto poli-
cies in Florida.

Give it a chance
A crackdown on seven companies - including three
from South Florida - involved in e-mailing porno-
graphic images shows federal regulators are watching,
and are capable of enforcing rules on trafficking in X-
rated images.
The Federal Trade Commission has penalized the
firms for sending graphic e-mails without complying
with guidelines. Some of the companies involved have
already agreed to pay about $1.15 million to settle the
civil suits.
The companies ran afoul of the FTC when they failed
to follow rules governing the e-mailing of porn images
and photos. Government regulators say they believe chil-
dren witnessed some of the images, which were not
marked as "sexually explicit," did not list ways for peo-
ple to block them, and failed to include a postal address
as required by law.
Pornography has been a lucrative Internet business.
Porn purveyors were out of control with mass e-mail
spamming - sending unsolicited graphic and offensive
images - before federal rules put curbs in place.
The FTC's disciplinary actions follow a Supreme
Court ruling last year that voided misguided portions of
the Child Online Protection Act. Critics said the high
court's decision undermined efforts to keep pornography
away from children. But the FTC rules, and the teeth reg-
ulators have now put into them, show the government
can act without laws that could undermine free speech
rights.
It's not an easy balance, and stricter rules and penalties
might ultimately be necessary. But the FTC's actions
over the past year show the agency deserves a chance to
try its hand at regulating X-rated e-mails on the Internet.
The FTC charges should be a warning that the govern-
ment will penalize those who disregard the law.

Serving Highlands Count' since 1927


News-Sun correspondent
Larry Levey is someone I enjoy
just talking to.
We have had a number of
conversations over the years
that have helped me in one way
or another. Sometimes the help
comes in just having a good ear
to bend and sometimes it comes
through the conversation we
exchange.
And, yes, I have also learned
a lot from Larry.
He sent me this e-mail some
time ago and it was so thought-
provoking that it reminded me
of some of those conversations
we've had. I wanted to share it
with you with just a reminder
that it doesn't how matter how
much time you spend with a
friend, but the kind of time that
matters most.
"If you woke up this morning
with more health than illness,
you are more blessed than the
million who won't survive the
week.
"If you have never experi-
enced the danger of battle, the
loneliness of imprisonment, the
agony of torture or the pangs of
starvation, you are ahead of 20


ried and alive, you are very
rare, especially in the United
States.
"If you hold up your head
with a smile on your face and
are truly thankful, you are
blessed because the majority
can, but most do not.
"If you can hold someone's
hand, hug them or even touch
them on the shoulder, you are
blessed because you can offer
God's healing touch.
"If you can read this mes-
sage, you are more blessed than
over two billion people in the
world that cannot read anything
at all.
"You are so blessed in ways
you may never even know."
I do feel blessed, especially
when I think about my family
and friends.

Here's a cute one, also from
an e-mail:
"A sweet grandmother tele-
phoned Mount Sinai Hospital.
She timidly asked, 'is it possi-
ble to speak to someone who
can tell me how a patient is
doing?'
"The operator said 'I'll be

helps with day

Editor:
Saturday, Aug. 6, was truly a
momentous day for Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity.


We dedicated four houses that
morning, one in Avon Park
Lakes and the other three on
Memorial Drive.
Due to the location and pos-
sible traffic problems, we
requested assistance for traffic
control from the sheriff's
department for the Memorial


Drive location. Deputy Sheriff
Moore was assigned to help us.
Due to his presence, traffic
slowed to a respectable speed
and the possibility of an unfor-
tunate accident was greatly
reduced.
We would like to commend
the sheriff's department and, in


particular,
Moore, for
done.


Deputy Sheriff
a great job, well

Got the whole car to myself


A lot of people don't like to
travel alone.
I admit, it's a lot easier mak-
ing myself a peanut butter and
jelly sandwich when I can con-
centrate on driving and let
someone else do it.
Ever try to spread peanut but-
ter with your fingers?
My family frequently took
eight-hour trips to see our rela-
tives. Mom made the sandwich-
es. Dad looked for exit signs.
The dog drooled on our backs.
We kids argued over who got to
play what tape in the stereo
while wrestling with each other
for legroom
This summer, for the first
time ever, I drove two days to
the relatives - alone.
No fights over the CD player.
No stuff underfoot. No drooling
dogs.
Whole car to myself. I set the
cruise control, put one leg on
the dash and the other in the
passenger seat.
And electric windows.
Flying down the interstate at ...
uhm, uh ... the speed limit ...,
wind blowing through all four
windows and my favorite Led
Zeppelin CD cranking away.
Who says Zeppelin is dead?
It's "retro...."
You want retro? In college in
Alabama, I drove a 19-year-old
Volkswagen with a Boom-Box

drive to Tuscaloosa,
playing tag on
Interstate 20 with the

declared me "a brave

ATV's are not to be ridden on paved road ways


Whoever named
four wheelers All
Terrain Vehicles
(ATVs) should have
put an asterisk after
it.
Then they could
have explained that
when they were
designed, it was not
for them to be driven HIc
on regular road ways.
But alas they didn't HO
and the confusion
continues. J.P.
While ATVs can be "-
a great pleasure to
ride there seems to be a prob-
lem on exactly where you can
ride them.
Did you know that ATVs
were first made in Japan for
farmers? They were designed to
be used on the farm environ-
ment in Japan and were
extremely helpful in the rainy
season to give the farmer an
easy access vehicle to get to the
local market in town.
It didn't take the Japanese
long to realize that these vehi-
cles could be marketed to peo-
ple in the United States.
Well, let's dig into Florida
State Statutes (FSS) and see
what they state about ATVs.
The term "all-terrain vehicle"
means any motorized off-high-
way vehicle 50 inches or less in
width, having a dry weight of
900 pounds or less, designed to
travel on three or more low-
pressure tires, having a seat
designed to be straddled by the
operator and handlebars for
steering control, and intended
for use by a single operator with
no passenger. For the purposes
of this section, "all-terrain vehi-
cle" also includes any "two-
rider ATV" (this last sentence
was just added this year).
Like motorcycles there is a


T

i


requirement for cer-
tain persons to wear
head protection (hel-
mets) specifically;
"No person under 16
years of age shall
operate, ride or be
otherwise propelled
on an all-terrain
vehicle unless the
IWAY person wears a safety
helmet meeting
LINE United States
- Department of
FANE Transportation stan-
-- dards and eye protec-
tion."
This section is constantly
overlooked by riders, but it can
cost them $69.50. The one nice
thing is that it is considered a
non-moving violation so there
won't be any points assessed
against your driver's license for
this offense.
Since their introduction, ATV
popularity is growing by leaps
and bounds. And as they have
grown in numbers so has their
impact on accidents.
The last year of reported sta-
tistics provided by the state is
2003. In that year there were
490 reported crashes in the state
of Florida involving ATVs.
While that may be a small
number, understand that there
are different reporting require-
ments.
By statute the only crashes
on an ATV that must be report-
ed are "If a crash results in the
death of any person or in the
injury of any person which
results in treatment of the per-
son by a physician, the operator
of each all-terrain vehicle
involved in the crash shall give
notice of the crash."
So you can just imagine how
many crashes occurred that
weren't reported because they


didn't meet the standard for
reporting.
Of those reported crashes
there were 22 that resulted in
deaths. There were also 440
crashes that were listed as
injury crashes and 28 that had
property damage.
The U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission estimates
that ATV-related injuries in the
United States have doubled in a
recent five-year period and the
number of deaths also continue
to climb.
ATV injuries requiring an
emergency room visit increased
by more than 100 percent from
an estimated 52,800 in 1997 to
110,100 in 2001. In 2001, about
a third of these victims were
under 16 years old. In this same
period the estimated number of
ATV drivers increased 36 per-
cent, driving hours grew 50 per-
cent and the number of ATV's
increased 40 percent.
Commission staffers estimate
that there were 634 deaths asso-
ciated with ATVs in 2001. This
is up from 291 deaths in 1997.
So where can you ride your
ATVs? The FSS that deals with
ATVs states, "Except as provid-
ed in this section, an all-terrain
vehicle may not be operated
upon the public roads, streets,
or highways of this state, except
as otherwise permitted by the
managing. state or federal"
agency."
There are no places in
Highlands County that I am
aware of that have been desig-
nated for ATV usage. This has
caused a large problem as ATV
owners search out a place to
enjoy their machines.
In the state of Florida the
only designated public place is
the Withlacoochee State Forest
near Brooksville. Parts of Ocala


and Apalachicola national
forests and Big Cypress
National Preserve are open to
off-road vehicles. A fee may be
charged.
Since 2002, Florida has
required all-terrain vehicles to
be titled. The ATV title program
feeds a state fund to develop
new off-road vehicle parks.
Between June 2002 and
September 2004 approximately
$1.7 million had been collected
for that fund. Of that amount,
approximately $726,000 had
been designated for programs
including land acquisition,
maintenance and education by
the Division of Forestry.
If you are a rider some safety
tips to consider are:
* Children and young people
under the age of 16 should not
ride adult ATVs (with engines
bigger than 90 cubic centime-
ters).
* Take a hands-on safety
training course.
* Always wear a helmet
while on an ATV.
* Never drive an ATV on
paved roads.
* Never drive while under
the influence of drugs or alco-
hol.
* Never drive an ATV with a
passenger, and never ride as a
passenger.
Remember to drive carefully
and defensively.

Taylors bring Harder Hall update to record summer crowd


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - The Taylor
brothers, Kevin and Pat, held
the rapt attention of Sebring
Historical Society members
recently during lunch at the
Sebring Civic Center.
Kevin proudly recanted work
done in the north wing and 67
rooms almost ready for occu-
pancy. The new kitchen will be
between an upscale steak house
and a banquet room with a seat-
ing capacity of 275. Patrons
may enter the restaurant direct-
ly from the parking area rather
than entering through the lobby.
The Great Room restored to
its original colors will feature a
suspended mezzanine for enter-
tainment. and a friendly bar
under the stairwell near the
lounge area. The Great Room
will open onto the tiled patio
where breakfast may be
enjoyed with full view of Little
Lake Jackson.
The beachfront will be
restored and a larger and deeper
swimming pool will be
installed. Special lighting as
used in Dade County and The
Keys will manage the bug pop-
ulation. A spa and health club
will be available near the ban-
quet room.
The old tennis courts have
been removed, but plans call for
from four to six new ones.

ELIZABETH WALKER/News-Sun
Taylor brothers, Kevin (left) and Pat, set up displays at the Sebring Historical Society Meeting where
they were speaking recently. They discussed progress in the Harder Hall restoration and plans for its
future. The rendition shown in the photo of Harder Hall's Great Room is by designer Carlton Varney of
Dorothy Drapes & Co. in New York.


Designer Carlton Varney
from Dorothy Drapes & Co. of
New York, maintains the origi-
nal pastel tints of Harder Hall in
his renditions. Three of his
works completed the display
created by archivist Carol Goad
for the event.
The goal is to maintain the
facility's antique appearance


while providing modem con-
veniences including several air
conditioning units. Pat agreed
that completion by February
2006 will be tough, but that is
the projected opening date. Pat
added that he was familiar with
the stories of ghosts past and
confided that any straggler
ghosts were friendly, as they


had not seen any signs of mis-
chief since their arrival in
Sebring.
The brothers are eager to
receive stories and memories of
events in the hotel from citizens
and expect to be able to display
old photographs in selected
areas.

Mitsubishi Eclipse seeks 'attainable exotic' status for 2006


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
.Mitsubishi officials know there are
way more people who lust after
exotic sport coupes than can afford
them. So as they developed the
new, fourth-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse for
2006, they kept thinking about creating an
"attainable exotic," especially as they fit a new,
powerful V6 under the hood.
The best-selling import sport coupe in the
country over the past 15 years, the Eclipse now
rides on a new, more rigid platform and is
restyled with a sophisticated, expressive look.
Its also slightly roomier than its predecessor
and has more safety equipment but remains a
front-wheel-drive car.
Starting manufacturers suggested retail price,
including destination charge, for the 2006
Eclipse is $19,994. This is for a four-cylinder
model and might spur shoppers to compare the
new Eclipse to lower-priced coupes such as the
2005 Acura RSX, which has a starting MSRP,
including destination charge of $20,845 and the
2005 Hyundai Tiburon, which starts at $16,594.
But the 2006 Eclipse GT with 263-horsepow-
er, 3.8-liter, single overhead cam V6 and start-
ing price of $24,294 has a potent 260 foot-
pounds of torque at 4,500 rpm that compares
with the 260 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm found in
a manual-transmission, V6-powered Infiniti G35
coupe that starts at $33,960.
The Eclipse V6 clearly outclasses the 172-
horsepower and 181 foot-pounds at 3,800 rpm
of the uplevel Hyundai Tiburon with 2.7-liter
V6.
In the test Eclipse GT with six-speed manual,
I had to really focus on how I touched the gas
pedal. Throttle tip-in was sensitive. Starting up
from stop signs in my neighborhood, for exam-
ple, Id sometimes find my head pressing back
into the head restraint as power came on quickly
even as I depressed the accelerator lightly.
The Eclipse GT also eagerly raced to highway
speeds while I was still on highway entrance
ramps, and I found myself needing to watch my
speeds carefully.
But fuel economy isnt the greatest in this V6
coupe, where the government rating is 18 miles


Mitsubishi Motors
The 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse


to a gallon in the city and 27 mpg on highways.
The base, 2.4-liter four cylinder in the new
Eclipse that produces 162 horsepower and 162
foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm does a bit
better. Its rating is 23/30 mpg for a model with
five-speed manual transmission. Automatic
transmissions also are available for the Eclipse.
But Acuras RSX, which comes only with a 2-
liter four cylinder that tops out at 210 horses and
143 foot-pounds of torque at 7,000 rpm, has
higher fuel economy ratings.
Note that the RSX as well as the Tiburon are
lighter weight than the Eclipse, which put on a
considerable 200 to 300 pounds over its prede-
cessor and now weighs more than 3,300 pounds.
This is heavier than a Mitsubishi Outlander
sport utility vehicle with four-cylinder engine
and two-wheel drive.
In contrast to some earlier Eclipses, styling
now is clean and uncluttered. This allows the


shapely body, with a rear end that's reminiscent
of a Porsche, to be the focal point and exude a
sophisticated and sexy look, rather than a cheap
look. I especially appreciated the tastefully inte-
grated rear spoiler. And taillamps now are
bright, light-emitting diode units.
The car is 3.1 inches longer, nearly 2 inches
taller and 3.3 inches wider than the 2005 model.
This makes for fractionally more front-seat
legroom and headroom - to 42.8 and 38.5
inches, respectively - as well as nearly 2 inch-
es increased shoulder room in front. But back-
seat legroom of 29.2 inches and headroom of
34.6 inches is less than what was in last years
Eclipse.
Indeed, even with a front seat positioned to
give me OK legroom in back, I did not like sit-
ting in the rear. My head brushed the rear hatch-
back glass, and the large, sloping rear pillar
positioned a hard plastic coat hanger hook next


to my face.
Cargo volume in the Eclipse declined, too,
from 16.9 to 15.7 cubic feet, and there is high
liftover to get items over the rear bumper.
Like any exotic, the Eclipse sits low to the
ground. How low? While in the front passenger
seat, for example, I found myself looking up at
riders in a passing Hyundai Accent small sedan,
which is hardly a tall-riding car. And with the
Eclipse drivers seat adjusted up as high as it
would go, someone my size - 5 feet 4 - can
still be stuck peering over the Eclipse wind-
shield wipers.
But the Eclipse GTs stick-to-the-pavement
handling and lack of body roll sensations made
for a fun ride. Be ready to feel road vibrations
and some bumps nearly all time and hear engine
tunes every time the accelerator goes down.
Theres noticeable road noise, too, with the
optional, large 18-inch tires.
Both trim levels - GS and GT - come stan-
dard with air conditioning, key fob entry,
AM/FM stereo with CD player and MP3 play-
back, antilock brakes with electronic brake force
distribution and six airbags that include front
seat side-mounted airbags and first-ever curtain
airbags.
Note, though, that leather seats can only be
added to the top, GT model. The GT also is the
only Eclipse with traction control.
The Eclipse uses the same front-wheel-drive
platform of the Mitsubishi Galant family sedan.
A lot of reinforcing across the floorpan and
bracing under the dashboard and between the
rear wheels give the Eclipse a much tighter and
better constructed feel than ever before. For
example, officials said the cars bending rigidity
has been improved by a whopping 119 percent.
Too bad, though, that the metal brace between
the rear wheel wells intrudes on the rear cargo
space and makes it difficult to slide items around
back there.
The sporty front bucket seats felt comfortable.
The new Eclipse went on sale in late May as
an early 2006 model and has already been the
subject of two recalls - one of which was seri-
ous enough to require the new cars to be parked
until they were checked, and, if necessary,
repaired.

Enough is


enough
"They should carry him to
the Town Square and pub-
licly pump the same number
of bullets in him as he did
her," said one irate 72-year-
old caller in reference to the
death of Avon Park attorney
Janette Banham who was
allegedly murdered by her
husband, Michael.
"He should be placed in
the general population with
all the inmates who he had
incarcerated and allowed to
be tortured, while suffering a
slow painful demise," said
another caller.
"He doesn't deserve to be
protected ... he needs to
spend the remainder of his
life in fear, regardless of the
out come of the trial,"
another caller said.
"Why didn't he just empty
the remaining bullets on
himself? Coward! Now tax-
payers will have to foot his
bill as he waits for a court
appearance, trial and subse-
quent sentencing," claimed a
caller.
As tragic as his action is,
we cannot stoop to his level
of savagery, but allow the
law to deal with him appro-
priately. No matter what the
sentencing will be, not
everyone will be satisfied
with the results. Remember
we cannot foster hatred and
advocate violence. If we do,
then we are allowing him to
silently manipulate us to be
bitter and angry from behind
prison walls.
Regardless of the brutali-
ty, Michael was once a sweet
lovable baby who had ador-
ing adults who love him. His
childhood pranks may have
been regarded as "child's
play." Many may have
observed his behavior, but
ignored it claiming, "It's
none of my business."
How about the adults in
his life, what kind of influ-
ence did they have on him?
How did they relate to
females in his life?
As Michael grew older,
his violent outburst may
have been ignored ... blamed
on stress or work related
incidents. Society may never
know what caused him to
become a vicious killing
machine.
Like Michael, there are
many more adults and chil-
dren who are following the.
path of their parents and
other role models in becom-
ing wife beaters, child
abusers, child molesters and
murderers.
Unfortunately, there will
be more Janettes who are
savagely slaughtered. More
victims will be blamed for
their untimely demise. More
families will be left to
mourn. More children will
become orphans, or they
themselves may become
abuser when they reach
adulthood.
Our community is seeking
bold members, politicians,
doctors, nurses and business-
es, who will speak, up. If you
remain silent about this epi-
demic, it means that you are
in agreement with the vio-
lence affecting our families.
Is anyone out there? Is
anyone out there bold
enough. Is anyone out there
with guts to stand up and
shout enough is enough?
Save our women. Save our
men. Save our children. Save
our families. The life you
save may be your own, your
daughters, your mother, your
sister, aunt, uncle, brother or
son. Our families need unity
and love.

Sally Bowles (Martile Blackman) flirts
with a smitten Clifford Bradshaw (Chris
Hayes) when they meet in 'Cabaret.'


'Wilkommen!

Bienvenue!

Welcome!'

to Highlands

Little Theatre's

new production

By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
SEBRING
n the realm of American musicals,
what could be more sensational and
enduring than "Cabaret"?
As many theater critics have pointed
out, the show hasn't lost its luster or its
ability to shock, even today, nearly 40
years after it debuted on Broadway.
When the smokey lyrics of Fred Ebb
combine with the haunting music of
John Kander and the brazen sexuality of
nightclub dancers, "Cabaret" becomes a
theater-going experience that electrifies,
titillates and startles at the same time.
Melanie Boulay would agree. The
longtime Highlands Little Theatre
actress and director has teamed up with
actress and choreographer Jennifer
Westergom to bring "Cabaret" to
Sebring.
"'Cabaret' really pushes the limits of
what we do here at Highlands Little
Theatre," Boulay said, adding that
everything from the costumes to the
lighting to the complicated dance num-
bers were aimed to do justice to the
show's legendary reputation.
While many think of "Cabaret" as the
career-defining showpiece for Liza
Minnelli and Joel Grey, who played the
leads on Broadway and a 1972 feature
film, Boulay has her own emotional
attachment to the musical.
In November 1987, when Highlands
Little Theatre staged "Cabaret" for the
first time, the then 13-year-old Melanie
Angus hitched up her stockings and fas-
tened her garter belt to become Fraulein
Fritzie, one of the headlining attractions
at Berlin's notorious night spot, the Kit
Kat Club.
"It was the funniest show I have ever
done," Boulay recalled. "I loved the
music and everything about it."

Anything goes
"Cabaret" hearkens back to Berlin in
1931 - at the height of the Jazz Age -
where the denizens of the Kit Kat Club
emerge nightly for free-flowing booze
and casual, unlimited sexual adventure.
The carefree esprit of young Germans
at the time reflected the psychology of a

New generation of 'Dukes' revives hillbilly comedy


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy has described
the redneck philosophy as "a glorious lack
of sophistication." Nowhere could that be
more evident than in the new theatrical ver-
sion of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
There are two groups of people, I think -
those who fondly remember the TV show
on which the new movie is based and those
who would like to forget it. For Duke-
lovers, it was mindless, slapstick entertain-
ment. For Duke-haters, it was just plain stu-
pid.
The show ran from 1979-85 on CBS and
famously starred two "good ole boy"
cousins from Hazzard County, Ga., who ran
their Uncle Jesse's moonshine, tormented
bumpkin sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane and
thwarted the underhanded' schemes of the
county's unofficial powerbroker, Boss
Hogg.
The trademarks were the Dukes' racing
chariot - a bright orange 1969 Dodge
Charger called the General Lee, which had
a horn that trumpeted the first 12 notes of
"Dixie" - and cousin Daisy's precariously
skimpy shorts.
In concept, the new Warner Bros. movie
revives the Dukes and their rowdy hillbilly
style, while giving the characters a modem
makeover. The new Dukes bring to mind
the old ones - to some degree - but they've
put their own spin on the characters and the
story. Rougher around the edges and less
sophisticated than the original, it's as if the
new "Dukes" has been reimagined by Larry
the Cable Guy.
In one of those strange twists, it's still
illegal for the Dukes to sell Uncle Jesse's
homebrewed moonshine in Hazzard
County, even though Daisy can serve every
brand of beer - from Miller Light to

Heineken - at the Boar's Nest. I guess there
has to be some reason to keep the Dukes on
the wrong side of the law.
The story is pure "Hazzardous" material.
While running moonshine, Bo (Seann
William Smith) and Luke (Johnny
Knoxville) uncover a plot by Boss Hogg
(Burt Reynolds) to take over Hazzard
County in an ultimate showdown that
revolves around an annual road race.
Since the new "Dukes" has good and bad
points, it's hard to know whether it will lose
friends or make new ones. In the last week,
Internet Movie Data Base voters have given
it an average score of 4.3 out of 10, so the
future for this series is not promising.

'March of the Penguins' finds fascinating story in nature


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
"March of the Penguins" is one of those
rare documentaries that begs for a docu-
mentary of its own.
Directed by Luc Jacquet and distributed
by National Geographic, "March of the
Penguins" was filmed in Anarctica over
about six months.
Over the course of 90 minutes, narrator
Morgan Freeman explains how the emperor
penguins continue the cycle of life in one of
the world's harshest environments. Yet
some of the. most compelling footage
- comes at the end credits as the French film
crew mixes with their docile subjects.
Even though we hear Freeman constant-
ly reminding us that basically every day
-every moment -is a struggle for these
awkward water birds, it's hard to get
worked up over the suspense of whether
they are going to live or die. Let's face it, if
these plucky little penguins have managed
to thrive in the worst climate on earth for
who knows how many millions of years,
you can believe they'll make it to the end of
this documentary.
The penguins may have adapted to tem-
peratures that range from 50 degrees below
zero - on a sunny day - to minus-100 in the
throes of winter, but what about the poor
camera crew that filmed them hovering on
slabs of ice for months on end? This is a
movie that begs to be released on DVD
along with a "Making Of" featurette. ,
Not that "March of the Penguins" lacks
its own natural drama. Apart from taking us
a remote, forbidding locations - which we
get to experience in the comfort of a cli-
mate-controlled movie theater - this docu-
mentary insprires a new appreciation for
one of nature's most remarkable creatures.
The "march" of the title refers to the
emperor penguins' annual trek from their
ocean feeding ground to their inland breed-
ing ground 70 miles away. On virtually the

same day, with uncanny instinct, the pen-
guins hop out of the sea and start waddling
toward the place where they were born.
The amazing thing is - they travel
together and walk single file on their stub-
by flippers. It's worth the price of admis-
sion just to see one solid line of penguins -
hundreds, perhaps even thousands - bob-
bing along the horizon.
The march is only the beginning of the
trials and tribulations of mating season.
Once the penguins reach their final destina-
tion - off to their massive penguin conven-
tion - they have to find exactly the right
mate, produce their single egg for the year,


'MARCH OF THE PENGUINS'

Director: Luc Jacquet
Writers: Jordan Roberts and Michel Fessler
Narrator: Morgan Freeman
Released by: National Geographic and
Bonne Pioche
Running time: 1 hour, 24 minutes
Rated: G
Now Playing: Fairmount Cinema 6, 3750

and hopefully see their offspring hatch and
survive. This means going without food for
two to four months and making that 70-
mile trip several more times to find food.
The emperor penguins give the impres-
sion of being extremely cute and cuddly,
and they prove to be able survivors, even
though their physical design is as comical
as it is dignified.
One drawback of the documentary is that
the filmmakers go overboard in their
attempts to humanize their penguins sub-
jects and fill them with emotion - some-
thing biologists will vehemently argue that
animals do not possess.
While "March of the Penguins" plays to
the heartbreak of certain tragic moments -
like the mournful cries of a mother penguin
whose egg cracks on the ice - it doesn't
dwell on the nature's cruelty to the animal
world. At the end, the attachment between
doting parents and offspring is broken casu-
ally when the adults dive into the ocean one
day and leave the juveniles behind - never
to look for them again.
Fortunately, though, the filmmakers'
heavy-handed message doesn't detract
from the true miracle of this movie - con-
juring amazement for how the circle of life
continues among the unlikeliest of God's
creatures at what is truly the end of the
world.


Mom's surprise for daughter is hard for husband to bear


Dear Abby: A few years ago, I lost a
treasured stuffed animal from my child-
hood. I told my husband about it, and how
sad it made me.
Being the caring, thoughtful person he is,
he went on eBay to see if he could find one
like it. He thought he had located it, but
wanted to be absolutely sure, so he sent my
mom the link. She informed him it wasn't
the same bear and convinced him not to buy
it, but still he told me about it.
The next time we went to visit my moth-
er, she said she had a "surprise" for me. As
we were packing to go home, she presented
the surprise: The same teddy bear my hus-
band had shown her. He was very upset, but
did not confront her.
My husband has also mentioned that he
feels my mother doesn't like him. Would it
be OK to ask her why she bought the bear
after talking him out of it? If so, how would
you suggest mentioning it without sounding
accusatory? - Upset in Columbus, Ohio
Dear Upset: Stop worrying about sound-
ing accusatory, and just ask her why she did
it. Maybe she wanted to be a "hero." Maybe
she felt the need to upstage your husband.
Whatever the reason, she should explain
herself. She owes your husband an apology.
Dear Abby: I am 10 and go to an ele-
mentary school where there is zero toler-
ance for bullying, teasing, fighting, etc. I
have extremely low vision and have to wear
glasses, but nobody made fun of me. (I'm


the only one in class who wears
glasses.)
A friend of my mom's son is
starting first grade this coming
year. His vision is lower than
mine, and he has to wear very
thick glasses. They are so thick
the other kids might consider
him a "nerd."
How can I comfort him? He is
already sad. Do you think the
kids will make fun of him? -

Dear Kid With Glasses:


DEAR ABBY

Jeanne Phillips


Support your friend by making a
point of "being there" for him if he needs to
talk, and if he's feeling bad about himself,
reassure him by reminding him of his good
points. However, because your school has
zero tolerance for students abusing each
other, the boy may not encounter the prob-
lems you fear he will.
One way to ensure tolerance and under-
standing would be for the teacher to prepare
her students by explaining to them the dis-
ability their classmate is dealing with.
When I was in grammar school, a deaf girl
joined my class. Once her condition was
understood by the other students, she was
readily accepted.
Dear Abby: My neighbor, who has been
divorced for about a year and a half, has a
day job. Her ex-husband is unemployed
and lives just down the street. While my
neighbor is at work and her two teenage


sons are away, her ex goes into
her house, sometimes for an hour
or more. (He has access to their
children's house keys.) At certain
times of the month, I see him dig-
ging through her trash can at the
end of the driveway.
I am sure she has no idea of
what is going on at her house
while she is at work. Knowing
his bad behavior in the past,
should I let my neighbor know
what her ex-husband is doing? -

Dear Dilemma: I am remind-
ed of the profound saying, "All that is nec-
essary for evil to happen is for good men to
remain silent." What are you waiting for?
Speak up!

Maranatha Baptist Church selects interim pastor


SEBRING - Maranatha
Baptist Church of Sebring has
called the Rev. Cliff Owens to
be its interim pastor as of Sept.
1.
Owens and his wife, Ruth,
are well known to the church.
They have been winter resi-
dents of Maranatha Village


since retiring from 48 years of College, now Cornerstrone
full-time ministry in December University, and Grand Rapids
1998. Baptist Seminary. He served
Mr. Owens has taught the churches in Michigan and
adult Sunday school, and Mrs. Florida.
Owens has sung in the church Owens was a chaplain in the


choir.
In 1963, Owens graduated
from Grand Rapids Baptist


U.S. Army for 28 years and
achieved the rank of colonel He
saw combat duty with the 5th


Infantry Division and Combat
Engineers during the Vietnam
War.
Currently, Ownes is a mem-
ber of Interpas, a group of
retired pastors who minister in
churches without pastors.


Words reflect the state of minds and souls


In Matthew 12:
34-37, Jesus tells the
Pharisees, "You
brood of snakes!
How could evil men
like you speak what
is good and right?
For whatever is in
your heart deter-
mines what you say.
A good person pro-
duces good words
from a good heart,
and an evil person
produces evil words
from an evil heart.
And I tell you this
that you must give


an account on judgment day of
every idle word you speak. The
words you say now reflect your


fate then; either you
will be justified by
them or you will be
condemned."
Jesus is telling us
that "Every idle word"
will either justify you
or condemn you.
Words are very pow-
erful. When we hear
FOR people speaking we
immediately form an
ST opinion of them, not
only by their appear-
tnable ance but also by their
words?
Sometimes we form
a negative opinion
based on appearance and then
when we hear that person speak
and realize we were mistaken,


or we do the opposite and form
a positive opinion of someone
and then hear the trash and vul-
garity that comes out of their
mouth and we can't believe
what we are hearing.
This is what Jesus is talking
about. The Pharisees, claiming
to be upstanding men, were
judging people on what is right
and wrong, but their actions and
especially their words tell what
is really in their heart, and they
had no right to judge others.
We all have spoken words we
wished we could take back and
obviously we cannot be perfect
like Jesus, but we can practice
self-control and choose our
words carefully.
Just as the eyes are the windows


to our soul, our words are the
window to our heart. The holi-
day season can be very stressful
and even more so this year try-
ing to recover from the devasta-
tion, the wrong words can cer-
tainly come out in stressful
times.
Pray that God will ease your
burdens, calm your soul and
that your heart will be pure. You
will not have to worry about the
words that you speak if you ask
for this guidance in everything
you do.

Barry Schnable Jr is a sergeant
with the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office and a member
of Peace Officers for Christ

CHRIS

Barry Sch
Jr.































Warner Bros.
Bo (Johnny Knoxville) and Luke Duke (Seann William Smith) take
the General Lee out for a spin in 'The Dukes of Hazzard.'


'DUKES'
Continued from 2C
It has the same reckless,
rebel-rousing spirit, and the
story plays like an extended
version of one of the old TV
shows. It has a few moments of
mindless fun - and more than a
few of unbridled stupidity.
Some of the better parts
come from the gentle spoofing
of the Dukes redneck ways in
the modern area. For example,
when they take a trip to the big
city - Atlanta - their General
Lee, with a Confederate flag
painted on the top, draws hilar-
iously mixed reactions.
Though not annoying, Seann
William Scott and Johnny
Knoxville are slight immita-
tions of John Schneider and
Tom Wopat. The Duke. boys
seem younger, randier and


dumber than the originals, but
surprisingly that suits their
characters. Jessica Simpson
replaces Barbara Bach as Daisy
Duke. She got the legs - and
more - but whenever she opens
her mouth, her unho'neyed
Southern sounds like her
tongue is tripping around
barbed wire.
Country music star Willie
Nelson fades into the small r6le
of Uncle Jesse - that's surpris-
ing - and the serious, menacing
M.C. Gainey strikes the wrong
chords as Rosco. One casting
delight is Burt Reynolds, who
deliciously polished take on the
Boss Hogg character brings
him full circle. In his young
"Cannonball Run" and
"Smokey and the Bandit" days,
Reynolds' built his career
around playing good ole boys
who thumbed their noses at
variations of Boss Hogg.

Biopic portrays Pope John Paul II's struggle with Nazis, Communists


Associated Press
NEW YORK - It doesn't
match the impact of
"Schindler's List" or "The
Pianist" - and what portrayals
of the Nazi era reach such
Academy Award-winning
heights'?
But the Hallmark Channel's
must-see presentation on Pope
John Paul II's life carries a spe-
cial double whammy all its
own. Poland's young pontiff-to-
be and his colleagues are liber-
ated from the unspeakable ter-
ror of Nazism only to be sub-
jected to the mirthless tyranny
of communism.
These twin oppressions are
given equal time in the four-
hour biopic, "A Man Who
Became Pope" (8 p.m. EDT
Monday, repeated 9 a.m. Aug.
21).
A showbiz cliche says it's far
harder to hold an audience with
virtue than with vice, which
underscores the achievement of
Poland's Piotr Adamczyk, who
heads the international cast. He
portrays Karol Wojtyla as good-
guy son, student, friend to Jews,
actor, playwright, poet, forced
quarry laborer, secret seminari-
an, pastor, professor, bishop and
finally cardinal of historic
Cracow.
Adamczyk is never less than
interesting, and sometimes
compelling.
Since we're dealing here


with not only a priest but a
pope, it's understandable that
tastefulness replaces TV's cus-
tomary titillation in the depic-
tion of Wojtyla's relationship
with actress Hania, played by
the striking Malgorzata Bela.
Though many popes have been
products of cloistered back-
grounds, Wojtyla was a young
man of the world, involved in
secular university life and
underground theater.
"A Man" features legions of
extras, handsome locations
around Cracow and Vatican
City and music that seems
inspired by the "Schindler's"
score of John Williams. CBS
can only pray that its forthcom-
ing John Paul miniseries meas-
ures up.
The movie's subtly inspira-
tional message: The worst of
death and horror can never van-
quish faith, hope, charity and
simple human decency. The
assurance of a Catholic mentor
to Wojtyla turns out to be true:
"We will win with love, not guns.
The Nazis will disappear. Evil
devours itself."
Later, as university students
cope with communism, also des-
tined to vanish eventually,
Wojtyla advises: "Man is in the
middle between God and noth-
ingness and he must choose."
Hallmark timed the show for
the week that Benedict is
returning home to Germany. In
addition, the first showing falls


on the feast of Mary's
Assumption, when Roman
Catholics are obliged to attend
Mass.
The impressive script was by
director Giacomo Battiato and
Carmelo Pennisi, based on the
2002 book "Stories of Karol:
The Unknown Life of John Paul


II" by GianFranco
Svidercoschi.
John Paul fans will be disap-
pointed that the story ends the
night he's elected pope. But be
not afraid, as the pope would
say: The producers reportedly
plan to treat his eventful pontif-
icate in a follow-up film.

'CABARET' 'WANT TOGo?'


Continued from 1C
at the time reflected the psy-
chology of a generation that
was emerging from the fallout
of their country's defeat in
World War I - every family
punctured by loss of loved ones
and economic instability.
While the decadent, fun-lov-
ing Germans partied away.
Adolph Hitler and the Nazi
Party steadily rose to power.
Tales of that era were cap-
tured in the novel "Goodbye to
Berlin" by Christopher
Isherwood, which John Van
Druten turned into the play
called "I Am a Camera." Once
Kander and Ebb's music and
lyrics were added, along with
Bob Fosse's choreography, the
new vehicle became "Cabaret."
With its blunt and disturbing
portrayal of "anything goes"
sexuality against the backdrop
of political turmoil and Hitler's
ascension, "Cabaret" is a cau-
tionary tale. Here, the creepy,
androgynous Emcee lures
morally blind fun-seekers to the
carefree delights of the Kit Kat
Club while the world melts
around them.
"It's not the typical musical
where everything ends happi-
ly," Boulay said. "It's harder to
do a show where everyone
doesn't have a happy ending."
Unhappy endings
The unhappiest of all endings
comes for the Kit Kat's star
chanteuse, Sally Bowles, a
hard-edged goodtime girl who
bums the candle at both ends.
Sally captures the eye of a
struggling American writer,
Cliff, who wants to marry her
and take her back to the United


What: 'Cabaret'
Where: Highlands Little Theatre, Sebring
When: Opened Wednesday and runs through Sunday, Aug. 28
Show times: Dinner shows are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturdays.
Sunday matinees start at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday shows are at 8
p.m.
Tickets: $33 for dinner shows, $18 for dessert matinees, and
$12 for Wednesday shows
For ticket information: Call the box office at 382-2525
Sponsor: Tim and Martile Blackman and family


States. Domesticity is just not
Sally's style.
Another tragic affair devel-
ops between Cliff's landlady,
Fraulein Schneider, and one of
her tenants, Herr Scholtz. The
purer love they find in the
autumn of their lives goes
unfulfilled because she is
German and he is Jewish.
Eventually, Hitler's iron-fist-
ed reign ends the party for all of
the cabaret performers.
"There's a heavy understory
underneath all the glitz and glit-
ter of what was real life back
then," Boulay said. "That's
what makes it interesting."
Glitz and glitter
Because this very adult show
has a tragic bent, Boulay and
Westergom have worked hard
to make sure the glitz and glitter
is indeed dazzling.
The Emcee makes a different
entry in every scene, Boulay
explained. He glides down the
cabaret's elegant lighted stair-
case, swings onto, the stage or
pops up from trap doors in the
floor.
The Kit Kat Club girls have
rigorously choreographed
dance routines and racy cos-
tumes of boustierres, stockings
and layers of frilly pants. From
time to time, they leave the


stage to flirt with the audience -
as true cabaret singers would.
They learned a different style of
acting - reserved and mordant
instead of cheerfully bright,
Boulay said.
Even the lighting, designed
by Thor Knutson, adds drama
and pizzazz.
"We wanted the lights to
speak for the show and add
mystique to it and to contribute
to the mood," Boulay said. "For
that to work, you really have to
do it right."
The cast
Headlining "Cabaret" is
Martile Blackman, as the
doomed heroine Sally Bowles.
It's a role that won her a best
actress Zenon Award for the
theater's 1987 production - and
one she, a Kit Kat girl, took
over back then when the lead
became ill and dropped out in
the middle of the run.
"I think she wanted to come
back and get it right," Boulay
said.
Blackman once saw her idol,
Minnelli, in person, and was
bowled over by her.
"I was star struck,"
Blackman said. "The opportu-
nity to take this role and
rehearse it has been a dream
come true."


Martile Blackman, as Sally Bowles, belts out 'Don't Tell Mama' in Highlands Little Theatre's production
of 'Cabaret.' The show opened Wednesday and will run through Sunday, Aug. 28, at the community the-
ater in Sebring's Allen C. Altvater Cultural Center.


Chris Hayes plays Clifford,
the American writer who falls
in love with Sally.
Phil Attinger is Ernst, a
German with shady connec-
tions, who introduces Clifford
to the seedy world of the
cabaret. Art Harriman is Max,
the cabaret owner and Sally's
temporary love interest.
The middle-aged lovers,


Fraulein Schneider and Herr
Scholtz, are Kristin Taylor and
Pete Pollard, while Lorraine
Byron is the happy-go-lucky
prostitute, Fraulein Kost.
And the pivotal part of the
Emcee goes to newcomer
Dustin Martz, who has per-
formed extensively in produc-
tions at Restoration Church of
the Highlands.


"He's amazing," Boulay said.
Boulay said ticket sales have
been phenomenal, although
some seats remain available.
The show opened Wednesday
and will continue playing on
Wednesday, Fridays,
Saturday and Sundays through
Aug. 28.
"It's going to knock your
socks off," Boulay said.

August 13, 2000: Amateurs
won three, of the last four
matches at Golf Hammock
to take a 13-11 victory over
the pros-to run their record
to 6-0 in the Highlands
County Ryder Cup. The
pros led by one point fol-
lowing the best ball match-
es on the first day, their first
lead ever in the event, but
the amateurs stormed back
in the afternoon to take the
lead, then closed strong on
the second day to break a
10-10 tie.

Bone hopes to put local knowledge to good use



course of Highlands Ridge North today


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - Brian Bone
is hoping there really is no
place like home.
The 2000 Sebring High
School graduate gets his first
chance to play as a professional
on his home course of
Highlands Ridge North today
when the Moonlight Tour
makes a visit, and Bone can
think of no better place to
record his fourth win of the sea-
son.
"I'm definitely looking for-
ward to it," he said. "This is my
home course. I've played it a lot
and always thought it was a
great track and I'm kind of
excited to get some other guys
down here to give them a
chance to play here and see how
they like it."
Today's Moonlight event will
serve as a qualifier for a NEXT
Tour event on Saturday, with
anyone shooting 78 or lower on


Friday earning a spot in
Saturday's event. Bone said the
cut usually isn't so high in the
Moonlight events, but
Highlands Ridge North's 76.1
course rating (qualifying is set
within two strokes of the course
rating) means anything under
par will be a superb outing.
In fact, Bone said that he
.thinks the North course is the
best the Moonlight Tour will
have played on this year.
"A par round out here from
the black tees is a good score,"
he said. "Anything in the 60s
has a good chance of winning
either day. This course tests
every part of your game and it's
in phenomenal shape 365 days
a year."
Bone said the field should be
a good one, with players capa-
ble of posting solid scores over
the 7,234-yard layout.
"There's a lot of good players
on the tour. There's a lot of guys
that can play. I think most of the

guys that will be coming down
here are going to be some of the
better players because they're
willing to travel to play."
Whether any of those players
can post a score down in the 60s


will depend on how tournament
officials set the course up, Bone
said.
"They could definitely set it
up to where nobody would
break par, but I don't think

after spending most
of his life dreaming
of being a profes-
sional baseball
player, Sebring's Richie
Cormier spent a lot of time
this summer wondering if that
dream was ever going to come
true.
A standout career as an
infielder and a catcher at
South Florida Community
College and Embry-Riddle
University wasn't enough to
get the former Blue Streak star
drafted.
Then, after signing with the
Lincoln (Neb.) Saltdogs of the
independent Northern League
on June 28, Cormier was
released just over a week later
after appearing in just one
game as a designated hitter.
But Cormier's dream did
come true over the weekend
when he was signed by the
Milwaukee Brewers and
assigned to the West Virginia
Power of the Class A South
Atlantic League.
"When I didn't get drafted,
I was like, 'Where do I go
from here?' Then after I got
released, I thought maybe it
wasn't meant to be, but then I
got that phone call," Cormier
said Thursday morning,
adding that he had just been
officially added to the Power
roster and hadn't yet had a
chance to play. "I didn't worry
about it. I just put it in God's
hands."
The Brewers were actually
in the mix back when he
signed with Lincoln, but the


Cormier
said. That's
why he was
somewhat
surprised
when Embry-Riddle coach
Greg Guilliams called him on
Saturday.
"He just asked me if I iill
wanted to sign it ah the
Brewers)," Cormier sid "Il
said, 'Oh, yeah. Definiel..'
"I went (to Nebraska i for a
week and half and then I \ a:s

Saturday and I ,ame out here.
I was surprised."

NASCAR weathering free-agent free-for-all

Contract flaps involving Busch, McMurray just a sign of the times


By JENNA FRYER
Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - When Jamie
McMurray signed a contract to drive for Roush
Racing in 2007, it put his current team in an awk-
ward position.
McMurray is signed with Chip Ganassi Racing
through next season, and the team has no inten-
tion of letting him leave before then. But in the
five weeks since announcing his intent, the
Ganassi team has been scrutinized and criticized
for holding McMurray to his original contract.
In a shocking case of what goes around, comes


around, Roush now finds himself in the same
uncomfortable position: Defending Nextel Cup
champion Kurt Busch said Tuesday he is leaving
for Penske Racing South in 2007, and he wants
out of his contract next year to speed up the
move.
With the tables turned on Roush, outsiders are
getting a clearer picture of NASCAR's cutthroat
free agent signing process.

Streaks vow

not to repeat

'04 collapse
By CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING - Plenty has
changed since last year, but
the lingering pain from the
2004 district 1t...ut nlment
has not subsided for the
Lady Blue Streaks who
remain.
Six seniors departed the
squad that went 8-0 in the
district last year before a
shocking upset loss to
Lehigh kept them from the
playoffs, but six others and
head coach Venessa Sinness
are back to try to make bet-
ter memories in a new dis-
trict.
"For the six that are com-
ing back, it's kind of like a,
'That will not happen
again,' kind of thing,"
Sinness said.
Though Sebring has
plenty of holes to fill in
around the returnees,
Sinness has kept her expec-
tations high.
"A lot of people think it's
a rebuilding year, but it's
not," she said. "The juniors
coming up this year are
amazing. They worked very
hard this summer. Even
though they haven't played
at the varsity level, they're
very competitive."
The Streaks don't have
quite as much height at the
net as they did last year, but
outside of some minor com-
pensation for that, Sinness
will continue to run the
same, defense-oriented sys-
tem.
"That means we have to
serve-receive and pass the
ball really well, but if we
can do that and run a quick-
er offense, we'll have just
as good a team," she said.
"We have enough tall girls
to put in the front row that if
we block well, it'll definite-
ly help us in the long run."
In control of what will be
a slightly more up-tempo
attack is senior setter
Lindsay Espaillat, one of
three returning starters.
"She'll bring a lot to the
team, leadership-wise,"
Sinness said. "She knows
how to run the offense very
well. She did it all last year.
So she'll be pretty much my
quarterback."
Another returning starter,
Katlin Hamlin. will provide
stability as a middle hitter.
"She was on the court
last year a lot, so she's defi-
nitely a big asset," Sinness
said.

ater the weedeater will run over
you," said Felix Sabates, a co-
owner of McMurray's car at
Ganassi.
With no union or policing
organization, there is very little
car owners can do to prevent
the competition from trying to
lure its drivers away. There is
usually some sort of gentle-
men's agreement that prohibits
teams from talking to drivers
- under contract. And if the con-
versations do occur, it is typi-
cally with permission from the
rival owner.
So when Roush swooped in
and signed McMurray more
than a year before his current
contract expired, many
NASCAR insiders viewed it as
a:' sneaky back-room deal.
McMurray and Roush have
declined to discuss the specifics
of their negotiations, and
Ganassi has refrained from
voicing his opinion.
But the practice is becoming
increasingly common. With
several high-profile rides open-
ing up next season, teams are
desperate to secure replacement
drivers. And for the first time in
years, it's a sellers market.
Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte
both recently stepped down
from full-time racing, and Mark
Martin and Rusty Wallace have
both said this season will be
their last. It's created a driver
shortage with just a handful of
top name talent out there.
With much of the available
talent already under contract,
car owners are scrambling to
grab what's left.
"I think it is as tough as its
ever been with drivers," said
Richie Gilmore, vice president
of Dale Earnhardt Inc. "Right
now the market is really tough.
I think you look at before, a

Fan hit by bat at

Marlins game has

ruptured spleen
Associated Press
MIAMI - A fan was hospi-
talized in intensive care
Thursday, two days after she
was hit by Shawn Green's fly-
ing bat during a game between
the Arizona Diamondbacks and
Florida Marlins.
Karen Wellmeyer, 37, of
Boca Raton, suffered a rup-
tured spleen during Tuesday
night's game and was in serious
but stable condition at Jackson
Memorial Hospital, her hus-
band, John Wellmeyer, told The
Associated Press on Thursday.
John Wellmeyer said his
wife was expected to recover,
but added that doctors were
hoping to avoid surgery.
"Every time I go in there to
see her, she looks better," he
said. "Right now, it's wait and
see."


driver would have to win Busch
championships or contend for
them before you were brought
up.
"I think now you have to take
a chance and it works out or it
doesn't."
Gilmore admitted last week-
end to speaking to 2003 series
champion Matt Kenseth about
driving one of DEI's cars. But
with one year left on his con-
tract with Roush, Kenseth
declined to make an early deal
that would have teamed him
with Dale.Earnhardt Jr. ......
"He has always been on
DEI's short list. He was one of
(Dale Earnhardt's) favorite
drivers, and if we could ever get
Matt, he would probably be our
first choice for a teammate for
Junior," Gilmore said. "But he
indicated to us he was going to
try to work something out
where he is."
With Kenseth out of the pic-
ture, it leaves DEI with just a
handful of options to fill the
No. 15 Chevrolet being vacated
by Michael Waltrip.
Off the list is Ryan Newman,
who said last weekend he had,
reached a new deal to remain at
Penske. His contract extension
comes three months after a
newspaper report said Newman
was spotted leaving a meeting
with all five of Roush's Nextel
Cup drivers, with the implica-
tion that the team was trying to
woo him to join their stable.
Kasey Kahne was taken off
the market when Ray
Evernham announced a long-
term contract extension last
weekend. And Casey Mears,


while denying he had been
approached by Penske and DEI,
said he was trying to work out a
deal to stay with Ganassi.
Waltrip and Sterling Marlin
are among the drivers who are
looking for work, but neither
fits the current casting require-
ments. Teams now want young,
marketable drivers and are
overlooking on-track success to
get them.
Consider: The battle for
McMurray is a fight for a driv-
er with just one Nextel Cup vic-
tory - and that came in 2002
when he was driving as an
injury replacement for Marlin.
And Mears was pursued by top
teams despite having never won
at any of NASCAR's levels.
Marlin, meanwhile, has two
Daytona 500 titles among his
10 career victories but has
seemingly been shut out of cur-
rent negotiations. Same goes
for Ward Burton, another for-
mer Daytona 500 winner who
has sat out this entire season,
unable to land a ride.
Neither of them should both-
er applying for the open ride at
DEI. In a sign of the times,
Gilmore laid out his criteria for
the open seat by saying any
applicant must be under 30
years old and able to get along
with Earnhardt Jr. and Martin
Truex Jr., two of NASCAR's
most eligible bachelors.
"Junior wants to be the oldest
driver at DEI. That's kind of
one of the things he wants,"
Gilmore said. "I think the main
thing we're looking for is a
good teammate for Junior and
Martin."

"The draft is such a strange animal; so many
things happen with so many different guys, so I
wasn't surprised. I was a little disappointed for
him because I know how bad he wanted ... the
opportunity to be a pro player. We talked a few
times after the draft ... and you could tell he was
still itching and hoping something was going to
work out, and finally it has. That's a great thing
for him."
Now that he's in the minors, Hitt thinks
Cormier's work ethic and tenacity will serve
him well.
"He's, a grinder, a tough guy, a hard-nosed


player and he's been that way his whole life,"
Hitt said. "He'll work other guys to death,
which is a credit to him."
Another thing that could help Cormier's
career is his versatility. He played both catcher
and in the infield for SFCC and Embry-Riddle.
"He can make the transition to middle infield
and play second base and he's got enough arm
strength to play third base," Hitt said. "He may
have an opportunity to bounce around defen-
sively until he really finds his niche in profes-
sional baseball. You can play one position in
high school, another one in college and may end
up in another position in pro ball.
"I'm hoping he stickF, for an awful long
time."

The Lady Blue Streaks have been through a lot of change, but the
presence of junior Katlin Hamlin (right) in the middle will provide
Sebring with needed stability. Still, younger players like sophomore
Rachel Ashley (above) figure to see plenty of time on the court this
year.


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
Junior Brittany Bullock also
brings experience to the middle,
but she must reach back to 2003
when she started as a freshman
before missing last year with a
torn ACL.
"She's definitely won back
her middle position," Sinness
said. "She jumps well. Her knee
has recuperated very well."
The medical attention is now
focused on Sarah Roberts, who
is recovering from a shoulder
injury and may not be ready for
the start of the season. Yet
Sinness believes she'll be 100
percent by mid-September, and
hopes to pencil the left-hander
in the starting lineup from then
on.
"Utilizing her on the right
side, I think that she'll be a big


asset," Sinness said.
Junior Jessica Cooley will
see plenty of playing time early
in Roberts' absence, Sinness
said, and will get the chance to
showcase her power and jump-
ing ability. Classmate Caity
Smith, too, should see plenty of
time on both the left and right
sides.
Senior Clarice Tuazon will
hold down the libero position,
just as she did last season, pro-
viding key serve-receiving abil-
ity.
"She's really agile," Sinness
said. "She reads well. She's
quick."
Sophomore Rachel Ashley,
who saw time as a freshman last
year, will be in the mix as a
middle hitter, and junior utility
player Selma Younes can be
called upon when the team
needs a crucial block, Sinness

again for Gators


said.
The Lady Streaks will also
have sophomore Whitney Lee,
a transfer from Lake Placid who
will fit in on the left side.
"She's just an athlete,"
Sinness said. "She just does it
all right, just because she's ath-
letic."
Though there will be plenty
such new faces to go against a
number of daunting district


foes, including perennial state
power Sarasota Booker, Sinness
is embracing the unknown.
"It's a challenge that we
need," she said of the revamped
district. "We don't know what
to expect, so we just go in play-
ing our best not knowing who
they are.
"That's a good thing. That
happened to us two years ago
and we won the district."


By MARK LONG
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Gavin
Dickey has spent his entire
Florida career bouncing
around, so this is nothing new.
The junior from Tallahassee
has played quarterback, run-
ning back and receiver for the
Gators. He also has split time
between the football and base-
ball programs, even starting 59
games in the outfield last sea-
son.
Now, Florida's new coaching
staff has him on the move
again, working primarily at
receiver during fall practice.
This time, though, the change
might be permanent.
"Honestly, I'm more com-
fortable at quarterback because
I've done it my whole life,"
Dickey said Thursday. "But
receiver is fun. I'm up for the
challenge and anywhere I can
help the team out, I'm willing
to do it."
Coach Urban Meyer made
the move primarily because he
needed more receivers to effec-
tively run the spread offense.
Chad Jackson, Andre Caldwell,
Dallas Baker and Jemalle
Cornelius are the team's only
experienced receivers, although
tight end Tate Casey also is
being used in spread forma-
tions.
"We have a real problem at
receiver," Meyer said. "We
have four that can play. I'm not
a math major, but when you're
playing five wide sometimes,
you're going to have a little
void there. Gavin Dickey's the
next best athlete and he's a guy
that handles the ball well."
'Dickey handled the ball plen-
ty during his first two seasons,
although most of it came in
practice and in mop-up duty.


He played in four games in
2003, completing 6 of 8 passes
for 71 yards with a touchdown
and an interception. He even
started one game at receiver,
but didn't have a catch.
His lone reception came last
season, when he caught a 4-
yard pass against Georgia late
in the year. He played in six
games and was 5-of-7 passing
for 56 yards. He also lined up in
the backfield against South
Carolina and ran once for 3
yards.
Nonetheless, Dickey's pri-
mary position has always been
quarterback.
He hasn't thrown enough
passes to qualify for the record
books, but his pass efficiency
rating (165.8) and his comple-
tion percentage (73.3) are high-
er than the school records held
by Danny Wuerffel (163.6) and
Wayne Peace (61.6).
The coaching staff hopes he
can be equally effective at
receiver.
"He has a good feel for the
game," offensive coordinator
and quarterbacks coach Dan
Mullen said. "By playing the
quarterback position, he under-
stands coverages and where
people are going to be on the
defensive side of the ball.
"What he has to get used to is
the fundamentals of it: how to
get in and out of routes, how to
turn around, how to catch the
ball, focus, the eyes. I don't
think he has an issue of what to
do. It's just how to do it. That's
the part that's going to take
time for him at the receiver
position."
Dickey still could move back
to quarterback, but it likely will
depend on the progress of
freshmen Josh Portis and
Cornelius Ingram.

Palmeiro returns, but doesn't say much


By DAVID GINSBURG
Associated Press
BALTIMORE - There was no apology, no
mention of the s-word.
Rafael Palmeiro returned from a 10-day sus-
pension Thursday eager to play baseball for the
Baltimore Orioles, yet unwilling to discuss the
positive test for steroids that tarnished his name,
perhaps forever.
"I want to say that I'm happy to be back. I'm
anxious to get back on the field and playing the
game that I love very much," he said. "It's been a
tough time for me and my family over the last
couple of weeks, and at this time I've been
instructed by my attorneys not to comment on the
situation. The time will come soon, hopefully,
that I can explain my situation."
Palmeiro was not in the Orioles' starting line-
up for Thursday's game against the Devil Rays.
Palmeiro was suspended by Major League
Baseball on 'Aug. 1 for failing a drug test.
Information on the case has been forwarded to
Congress; for that reason, he will not address his
situation.
He did, however, position himself in the
Baltimore dugout in front dozens of cameras,
reporters and microphones to talk about his feel-
ings and to speculate how he might be received
by the home fans.
Palmeiro has said he has no idea how steroids
got into his body, and promised to fully reveal his

some spots on the greens that
are fair positions, but are real
tough."
No matter where the. pins
are, Bone thinks local knowl-
edge could help him and Lake
Placid's Scott Todd today. Then
again, playing at home could
also be a handicap.
"I definitely think it's going
to help more than it's going to
hurt, but a lot of times it's hard-
er to play on your home course
than it is to go play somewhere
else," Bone said. "You almost
put a little more pressure on
yourself to do real well because
you have that home-field
advantage. It works both
ways."
Tee times will begin at 9 a.m.
on both days, and the public is
invited to come watch the
action. Spectators won't be
allowed to follow the players
around the course, but will be
able to watch from the club-
house overlooking the 18th
green or at other locations near
roads.

side of the story after the Congressional investi-
gation is complete.
"Congress is going over all the stuff right now
and I am just going to wait on that situation to be
over with," he said. "I'm just taking it one day at
a time."
Major League Baseball has told the House
Government Reform Committee that it will turn
over documents related to Palmeiro's case Friday.
"We'll begin reviewing them immediately. It's
hard to say how long that review will take,
because we don't know what's coming at us. We
don't know how many documents, how detailed
they'll be, what questions might arise," said Dave
Marin, spokesman for committee chairman Tom
Davis, R-Va.
"I don't imagine this taking weeks. The chair-
man should have a conclusion sometime early
next week," he said.
At Davis' request, Palmeiro authorized base-
ball to turn over information about his failed drug
test. Davis wants to investigate whether the play-
er might have committed perjury when he testi-
fied under oath to Congress that he hadn't used
steroids.
Palmeiro's agent, Arn Tellem, said Wednesday
that the star first baseman would not address his
case for now.
"It would not be appropriate to comment while
the House Committee on Government Reform is
doing its work," Tellem said.
