Gas prices



soar higher
By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
Gas prices are on the rise and hitting
Floridians where it hurts ... the wallet.
A recent surge in gas prices has many doing
some fuming of their own at the pumps.
Lisa Haley of Sebring finds the high gasoline
prices very disagreeable.
"It is just so disappointing," Haley said.
"This is really getting ridiculous."
Haley was just one of many waiting in line to
fill their gas tanks at the Citgo at Golfview
Drive in Sebring on Friday where the price of
regular gasoline was $2.41 per gallon.
The price at Citgo was one of the lowest in
town and had drawn quite a crowd.
By Saturday, however, the price per gallon at

Nichols: Watch the weather


Tropical waves,

storms still forming

in Atlantic

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichols is paying attention to
the weather.
Typically, August and
September bring an increase in
tropical activity off the coast of
Africa - the height of the hur-
ricane season, Nichols said.
"I don't think anyone's not
paying attention," he said.
Citing a database of storms
recorded from 1944-2000,
Nichols noted a total of 337
hurricanes. Of those, 95
occurred in August; 129 in
September.
"Those are historically the
busy months for hurricanes," he
said. "We are holding on,
because this is when we'll see
even more activity."
As of Friday morning,
Tropical Storm Irene was
approximately 875 miles east of
Florida in the southern Atlantic
Ocean, and heading northwest
at 15 mph with sustained winds
of 60 mph.


Vets can get

help with

discharge

papers

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Veterans who
lose or need copies of their dis-
charge papers can now get
access to them online.
The National Personnel
Records Center has a Web site
- vetrecs.archives.gov - to
help a veteran get copies of dis-
charge documents, also called
the DD Form 214, for employ-
ment purposes.
Veterans can go online to
request these documents.
Denise Williams, assistant vet-
erans services officer for
Highlands County, said the
information veterans fill out is
electronically sent to the St.
Louis, however, veterans do
still need to print out the form,
sign it and then fax or mail that
form to the St. Louis office at
NRPC Web; 9700 Page Ave.;
St. Louis, MO 63132-5100.
The records center needs a sig-
nature to complete the process.
Williams said this would be
especially helpful for anyone
without Internet access, a com-
puter printer or a fax machine.
Once the records center
receives the form, especially
with the electronic information
already sent, because it elimi-
nates mailroom processing
time. Also, the online system
will eliminate the need to ask
for additional information,
because the online form
already asks for all the infor-
mation the center needs.
Williams has known veter-
ans to get their records in as lit-
tle as three weeks. Usually, it
takes 3 months from the time
people mail it in, she said.
Family members of a
deceased .veteran - next of
kin, such as a spouse or child
- can also apply online to get
the records, but must also mail
in a signed copy of the form,
Williams said.
If veterans prefer, they can
fill out and either mail or fax
the forms from the local
Veterans Services Office.

Weather reports said the
storm was becoming more
impressive by building around
a center of circulation and
increasing in intensity. A
Hurricane Hunter plane was
going in Friday afternoon, so
Nichols expected to receive bet-
ter information over the week-
end.
According to the National
Hurricane Center, Irene was
expected to become a hurricane
by 2 a.m. Saturday. By 2 a.m.
today, Irene was expected to be
650 miles east of Jacksonville.
By Monday, she was expected
to increase in strength to 80-85
mph.
Nichols said the models
showed a trend of Irene going
to the right of previous tracks.
"(She) may not even make
landfall on the lower eastern
coast," he said. "It may be
Maine and Nova Scotia."
There are tropical waves near
the Gulf of Mexico, the
Caribbean Sea and in the
Atlantic Ocean, he said. As of
Friday:
* Tropical Wave 26 was at
the Yucatan Peninsula.
Thunderstorms were increas-
ing, with most of the activity
over land. It was moving west.


* Tropical Wave 27 is over
the Lower Antilles - the
Windward Islands in the area of
Barbados, Martinique and
Grenada. Thunderstorms were
increasing with slightly more
potential for development. It
was moving west into the lower
Caribbean, about four or five
days from the Gulf of Mexico.
It was expected to go to the
Yucatan.
* Tropical Wave 28 is out in
the middle of the Atlantic
Ocean between Africa and the
Windward Islands. It is show-
ing signs of organization,
Nichols reported, with a weak,
low-level circulation. It could
be a tropical depression over
the next few days. It was mov-
ing west-northwest, and still
four to five days of reaching the
windward islands.
Hurricane and meteorology
experts are saying we are in a
10- to 20-year cycle of busier
activity.
"You know my feeling on a
busy season," Nichols said. "
'If one hits Highlands County,
it's a busy season.' Busy or not,
we'll take the same precaution-
ary measures. It only takes one
storm, if it hits Highlands
County."


CI IRIS TOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Darlene Phypers, Ag-Venture board member, presents Steve Handley with a Guy Labree painting as a
thank-you for his work on the Ag-Venture board. Handley served as a board member for five years, and
is still in charge of the barbecue beef steak dinner, which is served by the Cattleman's Association at Ag-
Venture every year.


Volunteers needed for Ag-Venture


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - It's seven
o'clock in the evening
Thursday, and people are gath-
ering at Darlene Phypers house
to plan for the sixth annual Ag-
Venture.
Ag-Venture is a public event,
privately founded and funded.
That is why the group of nine
women, all members of the Ag-
Venture board of directors, was
meeting.
Sitting around a dining room
table, with bowls of beef
goulash to one side and piles of
lists on the other, the ladies
tackled their chores.
They had their work cut out
for them.
Ag-Venture is an event open
to every third-grader in
Highlands County.
For three days, children
arrive at the Sebring fair-
grounds where they visit vari-
ous stations, each one different.
Mot' tell about agricultural
products.
For exainple, children can
learn about alligators, poultry
or beef; sugarcane, citrus or
dairy. There are 14 stations in
all. Each child visits seven.
In addition, every child
receives a T-shirt and cowboy
hat, and planted seedlings and
coloring books, among other
things to take home.
Plus the children all eat at the
site, sampling the various prod-
ucts.
For example, at the strawber-
ry station they make milk
shakes; at the poultry station
they have an omelet.
Planning has to begin early
to pull off this monumental
undertaking.
The shopping list alone is
more than a page long.
And that doesn't include the
provisions for the barbecue beef


dinner, served by the
Cattlemen's Association to pay-
ing adults on the night of the
opening day.
Then there is all the work to
be done; all the sorting, folding
and bagging. This year, there
are enough give-away materials
that a resource booth will be
open to teachers.
One woman, Barbara
Bullard, who is a member of the
board, wraps and bands each of
the 1,300 T-shirts.
In addition to the prep-work,
the Ag-Venture board had to
adjust to some changes.
Every year until last, Ag-
Venture had been held in
September, during the peak of
the hurricane season.
In 2004, the hurricane season
had been devastating.
Ag-Venture had to be
rescheduled into November at
the last minute. The costs in
worry and effort had been
tremendous.
As a result, the Ag-Venture
board decided to shift the event
permanently into November,
safely out of the hurricane sea-
son.
This year it will be held on
the first, second and third of
that month.
But rescheduling Ag-Venture
created an unexpected problem.
It turns out that citrus trees
bloom in November.
This is important because
while the trees are in bloom,
live bee hives are put in the
groves to pollinate the blos-
soms.
Children have been fed a
snack of peanut butter and
honey on a cracker at the Ag-
Venture's bee station ever since
the station first made its appear-
ance.
In September that had been
perfectly safe. But with live
hives nearby in November, that


honey attracted scout bees from
the groves, which reported back
to the hive sending out yet other
bees.
It made for an uncomfortable
number of insects.
Now, nothing bad happened,
Darlene Phypers, one of the
event's founders, said. But the
Ag-Venture board wanted to
make sure things stayed that
way. Which-is why, from now
on, children will make beeswax
candles at the bee station in
November.
The main focus of the board
at this moment is get out the
word that it takes a ton of vol-
unteers to bring Ag-Venture to
life.
Strong backs are needed to
help set up and decorate the
Saturday, Sunday and Monday
before - that's Oct. 29-31 -
and breakdown the stations the
last day - Thursday, Nov. 3,
after 1 p.m. And at least 120
volunteers are needed every day
of the event, to act as guides,
helpers or go-fers.
Every board member on
Thursday night had a story to
tell about a volunteer enjoying
Ag-Venture. Most come back
year after year.
There is something for
everyone to do, no matter one's
limitations, Phypers said. She
points out that the bonds built
with fellow volunteers during
Ag-Venture often last all year
long.
"Our volunteers don't have
to know a thing," Phypers said
recently. "The presenters do the
talking. The volunteers just
have to enjoy being with kids."
A volunteer can work the
entire event, a single day, or
even just part of one.
For more information call
Danielle Daum or Darlene
Phypers at 465-2313, or Judy
Bronson at 655-0123.


Avon Park council wary of dispatch consolidation plan


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - During a
Monday night discussion on the
topic, Avon Park city council
members neither seemed
enthused nor ready to close the
door on the idea of consolidat-
ing their police and fire dis-
patch operation with the county.
Avon Park City Manager
C.B. Shirey explained the situa-
tion as he had outlined it in his
agenda narrative. He noted
there currently are nine jobs in


the Avon Park Police
Department's dispatch unit that
could result in as much as a
$334,000 annual savings to the
city.
However, Shirey warned that
the council "may or may not"
realize all that saving. He
explained that communications
Sergeant Walt McLendon also
serves as the department's
information technology officer
- meaning he works on the
department's computers and
software.


Some of the dispatchers addi-
tionally act as receptionists and
supervise such things as cus-
tody transfers and other such
functions.
The city manager told the
council it was staff's recom-
mendation that the "cons out-
weighed the pros at this time."
However, City Councilman
Doug Eason was not so sure.
"There are 334,000 reasons
to do this," he said. "I think
we're missing out on an oppor-


tunity here."
Eason said people could look
in the telephone directory if
they needed an administrative
line to the police department.
He then called on Avon Park
Fire Chief Terry Feickert for his
opinion.
"I'm neither strongly for nor


against this," he said. "Either
way, it won't affect us much."
Avon Park Mayor Tom
Macklin argued for the city to
keep its own dispatch, saying it
provided a level of service the
citizens have come to expect.
Council members took no
formal action.

#' Highlands County report


James Cooper
charged with
unlicensed
contracting
during
emergency
SEBRING - Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
picked up a local man last
week on an out-of-county
warrant for allegedly doing
unlicensed contracting during
a declared state of emergency.
James Allen Cooper, 45, of
Sebring, has been charged in
Manatee County, not only
with unlicensed contracting,
but also with scheme to
defraud and exploitation of
the elderly.
Deputies charged Cooper
while he was already in the
Highlands County Jail on
unrelated charges. His blanket
bond was set at $50,000.

Hankerson

charged with

failure to

register as

sexual offender
SEBRING - On March 8,
1994, Marcus Duraine
Hankerson, now 34, was con-
victed in Highlands County of
a sexual offense of lewd or
lascivious act upon a child
under age 16.
He is a black male, stand-
ing 5 feet 6 inches, with black
hair, brown eyes and weigh-


ing 138 pounds. He has a
faded tattoo on his right arm.
On April 5, 2005, when a
Highlands County sheriff's
deputy did an address verifi-
cation on Hankerson, he was
found not to be living at 558
Broad Street in Sebring. He
had moved on March 29,
2005.
On Wednesday, Aug. 3,
deputies found him and arrest-
ed him under warrants for
failure to register his change
of address as a sexual offend-
er. He is being held without
bond.

Wilkinson

charged with

meth possession
SEBRING- At 1 a.m.
Monday, Aug. 1, police
answered a call on a domestic
disturbance at Charlie Brown
Park. An officer arrived and
found a car parked across two'
spaces in the parking lot
there.
He spoke with the driver,
Brandy Eve Wilkinson, 23, of
Sebring, who was siting in the
car with two other women.
Wilkinson was speaking
quickly and making jerking
movements with her body,
reports said. The officer, who
had spoken to her before, had
never seen her act that way,
reports said.
Believing she had taken
illegal drugs, the officer asked
if there was anything in the
car he should know about.
She said no, and told him he
could search the car if he
wanted.
Another officer arrived and

searched the car while the
first officer spoke with
Wilkinson. Under the seat, the
second officer found a black
bag that contained 11 syringes
and a spoon containing a
white residue, which field-
tested positive for metham-
phetamine.
Wilkinson was arrested and
charged with possession of
methamphetamine and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia.
According to reports she had
an active felony probation. No
bond was set.

Holdman

charged with

stealing bicycle
SEBRING - A local man
was arrested and charged with
stealing a bicycle after he
rode it to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office on an
errand.
Carlos Jermaine Holden,
20, of Sebring, has.been
charged with grand theft, and
had bond rescinded on two
unrelated drug charges. New
bail was set at $11,000.
On Wednesday, Aug. 10, a
local woman found her blue,
26-inch Trek Navigator
Bicycle, worth $475, had been
taken from her driveway
sometime between 8 p.m.
Aug. 9 and 7:45 a.m. Aug. 10.
After she'd reported it
stolen, a Highlands County
sheriff's deputy walked out-
side of the sheriff's office in
Sebring and saw an identical
bicycle parked just outside the
front door. It had the same
model number, arrest reports
said.
The deputy went back into
the office and asked about the
rider of the bicycle. An
unknown black male, later
identified as Holden, had
gone to the central records


office. The deputy found him
standing at the corner of the
civil records office, talking
with sheriff's office employ-
ees.
When asked about the bicy-
cle, he said it was his. He
seemed surprised when tola it
was stolen, arrest reports said.
He then said it wasn't his, and
he found it on the corner of
the street at the Olds Grocery
Store. Allegedly, an old man
told him it didn't belong to
anybody.

Brito charged

with habitual

license violation
LAKE PLACID - Jesus
Macedo Brito, 34, of Lake
Placid, failed to register his
motor vehicle, so Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
stopped him.
They also discovered he
didn't have a valid driver's
license, so they arrested him.
He was charged with failure
to register a motor vehicle and
driving with a license sus-
pended, with knowledge. Bail
was set at $1,250.
Deputies stopped his car at
6:41 a.m. Wednesday, July 27,
on the corner of Main Street
and Belleview Street in Lake
Placid. His vehicle tag had
expired on May 18, 2005, but
a check with computer
records found the car did not
have a tag assigned to it.
What's more, he said he
didn't have a driver's license
because it was suspended for
a driving under the influence
charge. Computer records
showed it was actually
revoked for 60 months - five
years - on July 6, 2000, for
being a habitual traffic offend-
er.

Veterans Beach bust


nets two on sex charges


News-Sun
SEBRING - Sebring police
report they have made two
more arrests in connection with
an undercover officer at the
Veterans Beach recreational
complex.
The two men were picked up
Thursday afternoon. According
to the arrest report, one man,
identified as 70-year-old Peter
T. Van-Gessel went into the
bathroom and appeared to be
engaged in a lewd act.
The Sebring man then car-
ried on a conversation with the
undercover officer for a time.
The man reportedly asked the
officer to expose himself
"because cops cannot do that."
The officer left but Van
Gessel and another man report-
edly stayed inside the concrete
bathroom facility. The officer


then looked through the win-
dow and reportedly saw Van-
Gessel engaged in a lewd act.
He was arrested and charged
with committing lewdness and
exposure.
Later, an Avon Park man was
charged with committing lewd-
ness and exposure after an
encounter with the undercover
lawman.
According to the police
reports, the officer observed 60-
year-old Albert Ray Mitchell
engaged in a lewd act. Mitchell
allegedly used a specific term
when asked what he wanted
and exposed himself to the offi-
cer.
Both were booked into the
Highlands County Jail.
Mitchell was released on $750
bond, Van-Gessel was released
under $2,500 bond.

Gray said there were several
containers of gasoline inside the
shed at the time of the fire.
However, it appears the cans
were made of plastic and melt-
ed due to, the intense heat of the
blaze. Because the conflifers
gave way, there were no explo-
sions but the petroleum helped
to fuel the flames which contin-
ued for some time.
Although it was the thunder-
storm that apparently caused
the fire, the continuous rain also
helped to contain the fire and


keep it from spreading to the

home, which is a group home

ers during the incident.
No dollar damage estimate to
the shed or its contents were
available.

News-Sun, Sunday, August 14, 2005


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Kami Elliott (left), from the accounts payable department at Highlands Regional Medical Center,
catches sandbags from Linda Harrison, CEO of Health Management Associates and chief admin-
istrator at the hospital. Hospital staff set up a 'Hurricane Charley Party' to celebrate a year since
the storm hit the state. The luncheon party paid homage to lockdown gatherings in the board-
room during the storms with movies playing for staff members' kids. This time, the room had
plastic sandbags, Popsicle-stick houses with blue roofs, 'anti-hurricane hot dogs,' popcorn and
cookies, floor fans blowing gusts up to 1 mph, and disaster movies: 'Twister' and 'The Perfect
Storm.'


Citizens passing petition to reform redistricting


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Every 10
years, the Florida Legislature
can redraw the voting state leg-
islative and congressional dis-
trict boundaries.
Normally, these changes
reflect changes in population.
Some are concerned the
changes may be for political
reasons.
Ingrid Utech of Sebring
spoke Monday with members
of the Highlands County
Homeowners Association Inc.
on behalf of the Committee for
Fair Elections. The Tampa-
based, nonpartisan state politi-
cal committee, headed up by
political watchdog group
Common Cause Florida, advo-
cates creating districts in
Florida without political agen-
das.


During the 2004 election,
Utech said, none of Florida's
incumbents in the Legislature
or the U.S. Congressional dele-
gation were defeated.
Furthermore, she said, most of
the state legislative races had
only one major party candidate.
Florida was the second least
competitive state behind
Arkansas, she said, despite the
state having an even split
between Republican and
Democratic party voters.
Rather than let the
Legislature redraw districts, the
committee would like to see a
15-member independent redis-
tricting commission. The presi-
dent of the State Senate and the
speaker of the State' House of
Representatives would each
select three members. The
majority party in the State
House and State Senate would


each select three members.
Finally, the Chief Justice of
the Florida Supreme Court
would select three.
A second provision would
ensure the districts are compact,
use existing political and geo-
graphic boundaries, preserve
communities of interest, are not
drawn to favor politicians or
their parties, and are competi-
tive in practice.
A third provision would
require the state to finish the
redistricting process in time for
the 2008 election.
To get these provisions,
Utech and others need to get
750,000 people to sign the three
separate petition provisions in
order to send them to
Tallahassee by Dec. 31.

HCCC plans for the future


By LAURA COURSON- SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - On
Wednesday the Highlands
County Community Coalition
for Substance Abuse Reduction
held its monthly meeting to dis-
cuss their current and future
goals.
The HCCC provides drug
abuse prevention services
through programs geared
towards at-risk populations.
The agenda at Wednesday's
meeting highlighted the future
priorities of the group.
The HCCC'S core goals over
the next year include continu-
ing to network with other
organizations, expanding mem-
bership, spreading their mes-
sage through community pre-
sentations and sustaining organ-
ization by formalizing proce-


dures.
The HCCC is also consider-
ing the addition of a paid coor-
dinator, pending the approval of
grants they have applied for.
The organization is seeking
tax exempt status through the
Internal Revenue Service under
Internal Revenue Code section
501c3.
Amid the talk of future goals
more immediate concerns were
also voiced.
Chairperson Laura Van Horn,
having recently attended a Drug
Endangered Children presenta-
tion, spoke of her concerns
about methamphetamine.
"They call it the walk away
drug," said Van Horn, "because
once people are on it they walk
away from everything."
Methamphetamine can cause
violent behavior, delusions,


paranoia, anxiety and a variety
of other conditions.
The organization is currently
working on plans for presenta-
tions depicting the dangers of
methamphetamine.
Guest speaker Laura Corbin,
of the Florida Tobacco
Prevention and Control
Program, encouraged the inclu-
sion of tobacco prevention in
the HCCC's coming efforts.
"Tobacco is still the number
one, most addictive drug out
there," Corbin said.
Corbin also believes that
youth involvement is key to
spreading the message.
"The youth can help by
teaching us how to get the mes-
sage to their peers," she said.
"They can also help spread the
message themselves."

Senior Center needs help


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - A haven for
senior citizens may soon be
forced to close its doors.
The Sun Room Senior Center
has been suffering a decline in
funding due to the decrease in
the sale of trash bags, its top
fund-raiser.
The loss of income has
already caused cutbacks that
founder Dick Swenson hopes
will be temporary, but he fears
more cuts may be coming if
operating funds do not increase.
"We have already closed the
social hall and stopped serving
lunch to those who regularly
just show up during the week."
Swenson said.


The center sells trash bags (to
businesses and private citizens
in order to cover the costs of its
daily operations.
"We depend on those trash
hag sales," said Swenson. "I tell
everyone thai if Giirl Scouts can
sell cookies, we should hbe able
to sell trash bags."
He noted that if the center
returned to selling 400 boxes a
month, it would be doing well.
Since it was founded in 1989.
the Sun Room Senior Center
has helped many seniors deal
not only with day-to-day prob-
lems but also with serious
health-related issues such as
Alzheimer's disease.
Approximately 300 seniors
depend on the center's clinic,


while 50-70 people regularly
show up to socialize or enjoy a
meal.
Swenson worries not only
about the future of the center
but about the future of those it
serves.
"We are still serving our mis-
sion meals on Wednesdays and
Friday, and our meals to shut-
ins on Fridays," said Swenson.
"We will keep those going as
long as we possibly can."
Community support, he said,
could turn things around.
"We would like for everyone
to keep us in their prayers so we
can keep our services open,"
said Swenson.
To purchase trash bags, call
385-4071.


Program sign-up deadline nears


By SHARON JONES

LAKE PLACID - The Lake
Placid Town Council had seven
ordinances and one resolution
to consider at its meeting last
week.
Two ordinances were
approved during their first pub-
lic hearing. One new ordinance
was tabled. Four more were
adopted during their second
public hearing, and the resolu-
tion was approved at what was
its first and only hearing.
Ordinance 2005-471 rezones
four lots at the corner of Lake
Rachard Drive and Park Avenue
from R-2 (Multi-Family
Residential) to C-2A
(Professional Commercial).
The owner, Amanda Acosta,
had asked for a general conm-
mercial zoning of C-2, but the
town's Local Planning Agency
thought that was too intensive
for the Serenity Village proper-
ty, and in July the council
agree.d .... .
Acosta wat' not preeni in
July, but she did attend the
meeting Monday and told the
council she would be satisfied
with C-2A, which allows
offices and limited retail uses.


9�


The council then approved the
ordinance during its first of two
public hearings.
Ordinance 2005-477, also
approved by the council at its
first public hearing, was what
Town Clerk Arlene Tuck called
a "clean-up ordinance." It basi-
cally makes the policies and
procedures for obtaining an
occupational license conform to
Florida Statutes.
The following ordinances
were adopted:
* Ordinance 2005-431,
also known as the "Big Box"
ordinance, limits the size of
commercial buildings inside the
town limits. The purpose is to
keep out large commercial
retailers, such as Wal-Mart.
* Ordinance 2005-463
sets architectural design stan-
dards for commercial buildings
in the town.
* Ordinance 2005-464
establishes additional setback
standards for certain kinds of
residential developments.
The town requires the front
of homes to be at least 25 feet
from a street. However, in res-
idential developments that use
new urban design standards,
those homes can now be set


Old Paintings

Estate Jewelry

Pocket Watches


back 12 feet from a private
street - but only if the-develop-
er provides a community space,
such as a park, that would be at
least 25 percent of the total size
of all of the lots.
* Ordinance 2005-472
makes distinctions between
yard widths, buildings heights
and setbacks for buildings in C-
2 (Limited Commercial) and C-
2A (Professional Commercial)
districts.
The council approved a reso-
lution vacating 0.26 acres of
property, which will revert to a
residential community that
Amone Consulting is develop-
ing around Lake Rachard.
In a related matter, the coun-
cil tabled a discussion on
Ordinance 2005-474, which
created a large scale compre-
hensive plan amendment for
Shore Club on Lake Sirena.
That community, also being
developed, by Arnone
Consulting, will have a total of
230 dwelling units on 72 acres
around the northwest shoreline
of Lake Sirena.
The council plans to recon-
sider the ordinance at its
September meeting.

now attending college in Orlando, was audience choice winner
along with Miss Congeniality. This was Lake Placid's second year
bringing home audience choice winner. Sierra Stayer was the

EDITOR'S NOTE: The
News-Sun has been publishing
news about Highlands County
since 1927 as a treat for our
readers. We have gone through
the archives and pulled stories
that we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy this
Flash from the Past of Jan. 13,
1965 ...

"The Sebring High School is
the only Highlands County high
school that is fully accredited,"
School Superintendent George
Douglass told the Board
Members Tuesday night.
He went on to say "that cer-
tain newspapers had misrepre-
sented the fact for the Lake
Placid school had been placed
on the "advised list" and the
Avon Park High School had
been "warned" by the Southern
Association on Accreditation of
High Schools.
Douglass went on to say that
according to the Association's
report Lake Placid had two
teachers teaching out of their
fields and two teachers with no
planning period as they were
teaching six periods a day. The
Association recommends that a
teacher teach only five periods
a day, thus leaving one period,
for the teacher to use as a plan-
ning period.
The Avon Park High School
has been "warned" for three
things: lack of a full time guid-
ance counselor (only three peri-
ods a day are being given as
guidance periods now); three
teachers are teaching out of
their field and two pupil periods
are overloaded.
Douglass reminded the
Board that Duval County
ignored the warned classifica-
tion they received and their
schools were discredited.
He explained the three classi-
fications - schools are either
fully accredited or they are first
advised, then warned.
He told the Board that no
action was necessary at this


timei.ie would make a com-
plete survey and then make his
recommendation to the Board
for correcting these deficien-
cies.
The next accreditation check
of county schools will be made
in April 1965, said Douglass.

Villas of Pine Key

ready to start building


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Trinity
Construction workers are ready
to start on the city's newest sub-
division called The Villas of
Pine Key. All they need is a
driveway permit to get the con-
struction vehicles in an out, said
the developer, Mike Secor.
As of Friday, Secor said he
wasn't certain where the bottle-
neck occurred, but the permit
has not yet been issued.
"Right now we're kind of
coming in using the alley
behind the Sebring Square
shopping plaza to get to my
trailer here, but I'm not going to
take concrete trucks and lumber
trucks through that parking
lot," he said.
The gate community has
been in the planning stage for
more than a year. It will have 59
single-story homes in the Key
West style, with a recreation
building and a pool. Buyers
have been at the homes in the
$10 million project both as year
round residences and winter
retreats.
"We've got half the project
sold out and we haven't even
advertised yet," Secor said.
Secor reported that the cus-
tomer base has been half local
residents and half out-of-town-
ers.
"I've been monitoring that
specifically," he said. "We're
just at the point now where
we're starting to write contracts
and it seems to be holding at


just about half and half."
Local developer Gary
Puckett worked with Secor on
the preliminary site plan during
the early going. The two also
worked together on the ReMax
Plaza, which also features the
Key West theme.
"Everybody likes this Key
West style, and it's functional.
That office complex went
through three hurricanes and
never lost a screw," Puckett
said. "There were no leaks, we
didn't lose a roof panel, not a
piece of siding - nothing."
Because it is behind the
Sebring Square shopping plaza,
Secor noted the new homes
would be within walking dis-
tance of shopping and restau-
rants. Its proximity to the inter-
section of the Sebring Parkway
and U.S. 27 also would put res-
idents within a short traveling
distance to movies, medical
complexes and recreational
facilities.
Unlike the neighboring Lake
Jackson Heights, the new sub-
division will be inside the
Sebring city limits. Secor said a
homeowners association would
be developed to ensure ongoing
maintenance at the community.
For details, call 386-5004 or
visit the office at 320 Sebring
Square.


supervising principal and assis-
tant principal Guy Garnett last
week to discuss the vandalism
of the school property.
The board agreed that a
tougher policy had to be adopt-
ed. The defacing of school
property has become a very
serious -matter. Several of the
high schools have been Color-
created and it becomes an
expensive project, as a sand
blasting job is needed to re-do
the schools when smeared with
paint.
The Board recommended
that a policy be prepared calling
for a mandatory 10-day suspen-
sion.

FEMA shows it has a sense of

humor with request of Bluebirds


News-Sun
SEBRING - Patricia Lloyd
brought a little bit of humor into
the tragedies of last year's three
hurricanes when she "wrote" a
letter to the Federal Emergency
Management Association on
behalf of "Mr. and Mrs. Eastern
Bluebird."
The Bluebirds, Lloyd said,
lost part of the roof on their
birdhouse, which is located on
Lloyd's A Lane property.
On behalf of the "family,"
she wrote a letter apologizing
for the delay in asking for
"assistance."
Through Lloyd, the
Bluebirds relayed that the roof
was lost during Hurricane
Charley, which came across
Central Florida one year ago
this weekend.
"Our neighbor was kind
enough to put on a blue roof,
but it really annoys us. Is there
any way you can help," the let-
ter from Lloyd read.
Well, the Bluebirds' request
was humorous enough that
Michael B. Hirsch, individual
assistance branch chief for the
FEMA Recovery Division,
decided to join in the fun.
In a letter dated June 7 from
Hirsch, he thanks Lloyd for for-
warding the letter from the
Bluebirds. But the news was
not all good.
FEMA denied any assistance.
Hirsch wrote, "In the after-
math of a federally declared
disaster, FEMA's Individuals
and Households Program pro-
vides assistance to people in the
United States of its territories

from FEMA.


whose property has been dam-
aged or destroyed. In order to
be considered for any form of
IHP assistance, the affected
home must be the primary resi-
dence, the home must be locat-
ed within the declared disaster
area, and the applicant must be
a United States citizen, a non-
citizen national, or a qualified


Lake Placid man wrecks ATV


News-Sun
SEBRING - Dewey James
Locke, 40, of Lake Placid, was
doing well Friday following an
all-terrain vehicle wreck.
He apparently wrecked an
ATV on Bridle Path at roughly
10:35 p.m. Thursday, according
to radio traffic. However,
Florida Highway Patrol reports
put the wreck at 11:11 p.m.
_ Locke was" approaching the


Derby Lane intersection on the
ATV.
When witnesses found
Locke, he was off the ATV,
lying on the roadway. FHP does
not know why the wreck
occurred, but charges are pend-
ing in the case.
He was treated overnight at
Tampa General Hospital and
released at about 11 a.m.
Friday.'


alien.
"Unfortunately, it appears
that the Bluebirds are not eligi-
ble for FEMA assistance. While
they may be indigenous to the
United States, their citizenship
is under question as citizenship
can only be held by humans.
Furthermore, while I am sure
they enjoy their home, it must
be their primary residence and
occupies at the time of a disas-
ter. There is speculation that the
Bluebirds were not actually
occupying your home at the
time of the disasters."
He extended his best wishes
through Lloyd for a speedy
recovery to the Bluebird family.
Lloyd said she enjoyed the
exchange with Hirsch. She is
glad to see that Hirsch appar-
ently found humor in the situa-
tion as well.

Sebring airport picked to --



host new flight school


By RACHEL PEACOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING - - The Sebring
Airport Authority is leasing
land for a flight school that will
provide 30 new jobs and train
around 1,000 students in avia-
tion per year.
The project development
lease for the Aviation Education
Foundation Inc. to build a
novice flight academy was
approved by the airport board
this week. The project, estimat-
ed to cost $4 million, will begin
breaking ground in October
during the Sebring U.S. Sport
Pilot Expo.
"This is a great facility for
Sebring," Mike Willingham,
executive director of the air-
port, said. "It will bring in lots
of people to Sebring who
haven't been before and hope-
fully create some spin-off (for.
the town)."
The program plans to attract
teen-aged youth, adults, fami-
lies and groups from around the
world for short-term stays at the
live-in facility.


"Their mission is to provide
youth and teens an aviation-
related experience to instill the
love of flight and instill a desire
to make aviation or aerospace
their vocation in the future,"
Willingham said after the board
made their final decision.
Fifteen new and type certi-
fied Cuberafters' "taildagger"
inspired Sport Cub or Top Cub
aircraft will be used for
instruction.
"It seems that your airport
will be just the right fit for the
'Primary Flight Academy' loca-
tion our foundation has been
seeking," James C. Ray,
founder of the foundation,
wrote to Willingham in a letter
that include an "executive sum-
mary," which illustrated the
project's specific plan and
goals.
The lease expires after 30
years with the option of two
additional 10-year leases after-
ward. Ray said the decision to
go ahead will be finalized when
he meets with his board.


The foundation has back-
ground in awarding grants and
scholarships to aviation educa-
tion for youth.
Creating a Primary Flight
Academy has been a long-term
goal of the foundation.
Recently, it has been observing
ideal airports, within the state,
to place a facility. The Winter
Haven airport was initially con-
sidered, but Ray said Sebring
was more "accommodating."
The foundation plans to rent
its facility to CubAir Flight
Academy, another organization
started by Ray. Charles Larsen,
recent director of training at
Experimental Aircraft
Association in Oshkosh, Wis.,
will be the academy's chief
executive officer. The director
of training will be Dean Vogel,
a U.S. Air Force Academy grad-
uate and F15 pilot for 12 years.
Willingham said the con-
struction of the facility was
fast-tracked and should be com-
pleted in about nine months
after breaking ground.


Commissioners consider contracting Brantley for TDC


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - On, Tuesday,
Highlands County commission-
ers will discuss whether or not
to sign a contract with Brantley
Consulting Group Inc. to run
tourism development for the
county.
A draft agreement would
have Jim Brantley, currently the
interim tourism director, take
over as a contractor on a perma-
nent basis. Brantley has consid-
erable experience in tourism
development at the local,

a local museum, they call me or
one of my competitors. We go
in and disassemble the plane for
them and load it on the trucks,"
he said.
As in this case, Mosley fol-
lowed the craft to its destination
and unloaded, it.
All Sunshine Crane operator
Paul Marx painstakingly
unloaded the large pieces one
by one as workers first set down
the pair of engines, then stacked
the wings and finally placed the
fuselage on the ground in front
of the Florida Aircraft Services
hangar where it will be stored.
Marx told co-workers the last
piece - the body of the vintage
1943 Aerotaxi - showed
75,000 pounds on his computer
weight readout. Some of that
weight is due to the fact that
parts of the aircraft used in
reassembly were stored inside
until needed.
The crews plan to return to
the Avon Park airport on
Monday to partially reassemble
the craft so it may be moved
about more easily.
"We're going to put the fuse-
lage back on the center section,
which will put it back on its
own landing gear so its
mobile," Mosley said.
The plane has a long and sto-
ried history, arriving in Key
West in the spring of 2003 after
being hijacked.
It was on March 19, 2003,
the Cuban DC-3 departed the
Isle of Youth bound for Havana
with 31 passengers and six crew
members aboard. About 11
miles from Havana, using
knives and an aircraft hatchet,
the six commandeered the plane
and had it diverted to Key West.


regional and state level.
After the county commission
revised the job qualifications
for tourism director, with an
emphasis on direct experience
as well as education, Assistant
County Administrator Tom
Portz learned that Brantley was
interested in taking on the job
as a contractor.
The job had not yet been
advertised, so Portz had staff
hold off on publishing the
vacancy until Brantley and
County Administrator Carl
Cool could discuss the matter.


The craft then sat on the tar-
mac at Key West International
Airport for better than a year.
Finally, in June of last year it
was sold at auction to a
Colorado pilot.
A Miami-Dade judge ordered
the auction, with proceeds
going to Ana Margarita
Martinez, a Miami woman who
won a $27 million judgment
against the Cuban government.
The plane has been unable to
fly due to Federal Aviation
Administration restrictions on
its Cuban certification because
its log books were missing.
The plane did have a brief
excursion during its time at the
Key West airport. Officials
there said when Hurricane


Since then, they have drawn up
a draft contract.
The contract, as yet, does not
specify a charge for Brantley's
services.
The county first got directly
involved with tourism develop-
ment when the Convention and
Visitors Bureau asked to estab-
lish a 2 percent surcharge on
short-term lodging to help fund
tourism promotion in the coun-
ty. Shortly after voters passed a
referendum on the tax, the CVB
hired Pat Taras as the tourism
director.


Dennis swept through the area
it broke loose from its tie downs
and was blown down the run-
way.
The Aerotaxi with the identi-
fication number CU-T1192 was
born in January 1942 and
shipped to the Royal Air Force
in India. It served for about 30
years in that capacity. Then in
1972 it was reconfigured as an
airliner and flew the skies over
Canada.
It later was sold to a Cuban
concern and used there until it
was hijacked in 2003.
The new owner of the plane
reportedly is Don Soldini, who
is the owner of Avon Park
Estates.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Kyle Downard (left), 5, points in the direction of gas prices Friday afternoon, while trying to get the
attention of his dad Dave Downard at the Citgo station near Golfview Drive in Sebring.


GAS
Continued from 1A
the Citgo store had risen to
$2.47. County prices on
Saturday ranged as high as
$2.54 per gallon.
The Citgo attendant was very
busy ringing up customers, but
he had tinie to attribute the
crowd to the lower price.
"We are about 5 cents cheap-
er than a lot of places," the
attendant said.
Customer Jason Wall was
surprised by the way people
were behaving at the pumps.
"No on can move out there,"
Wall said. "You would think
they where getting ready for a
hurricane or something."
Charlie Taylor owns four
local BP gas stations and wants
customers to know he is no hap-
pier about the increased price
than they are.
"Since the beginning of
August our wholesale price
from our distributor has gone
up by 30 cents," Taylor said.
"We have only risen our prices
by 18 cents, so we are taking a


hit."
The rise in gas prices on the
distribution level has forced
many area gas stations to take
such hits.
"We don't like the prices ris-
ing like this," Taylor said. "We
don't work on a fixed percent-
age of profit so we would hon-
estly be doing better if prices
were lower."
A steady increase in the price
of gasoline has also kept many
from enjoying vacations this
summer.
Lori Hartman of Troy, Ala.,
had planned to take her two
young daughters to Florida to
visit with friends and enjoy
Disney World, now she has
decided to wait.until gas prices
are lower.
"When you have two kids
you want to be able to enjoy
your vacation and get them lit-
tle things to remember it by,"
Hartman said. "But with gas
prices so high it really cuts into
your disposable income before
you know it."
With no sign of gas prices
dropping anytime soon, and in
fact more increases likely, there


are a few things you can do
yourself to save money at the
pumps.
According to www.autoedu-
cation.com you can improve
your gas mileage with proper
vehicle maintenance.
By monitoring your tires you
can cut back on the amount of
fuel you use. Under-inflated
tires or poorly aligned wheels
waste fuel by forcing the engine
to work harder.
Make sure you have your
vehicle serviced regularly to
increase your engine's efficien-
cy.
You also can cut back on fuel
consumption by obeying the
speed limit since speeding
decreases your miles per gallon.
Other ways to conserve fuel
are by carpooling with a friend
or consolidating all your
errands so you don't have to
make multiple trips.
You may not be able to con-
trol gas prices but you can cer-
tainly control how fast you use
it. Monitor your gas consump-
tion and you may well find
yourself saving money now and
in the future.

Turning

children into

students
I taught kindergarten in a
New York City public school
for a short time long ago.
I mention this because I vis-
ited the Redlands Christian
Migrant Association's day care
center and preschool in Lake
Placid this week, and it
brought back a lot of memo-
ries - some of them even
pleasant.
Which is another way of
saying.I only lasted as a
kindergarten teacher until the
Thanksgiving break.
In my own defense I'll point
out I had trained to teach sec-
ondary level history and geog-
raphy. But high school history
teachers were a dime a dozen
in the early 1980s, while ele-
mentary teachers were in short
supply.
I ended up teaching fifth
grade. Later, half way through
one year, I was shifted to a
first grade class for bureaucrat-
ic reasons having to do with
another teacher's tenure. That
took a major adjustment.
Then, just as I was feeling
comfortable at first, I came
back from the summer to find
myself assigned to a kinder-
garten class.
A kindergarten class, what's
more, made up of children
who had never had a school
experience before.

Day Care and Preschool Workers


RCMA creates an oasis for children

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

LAKE PLACID - For 40 years the.
Redlands Christian Migrant AssociationA
has been providing support services for
farm and rural workers.
Here in Highlands County, the
RCMvA has day care and preschool cen-
ters in each municipality.
In addition to teaching children, the
centers all have outreach programs, and .
parents are expected to take a part in
their children's education.
For example, lesson plans are posted
for parents to examine and initial."`"'K -5 -7,-.
Good health habits and nutrition areL.
as important as learning the alphabet.
Every infant in day care is health '
checked daily. Day care workers look -'
for rashes or swelling, coughing or '.

A record is kept, and referrals to doctors '
made when appropriate.
In the preschool, the goal is to prepare 2

it. " ' '" " ' " - ''

Proctor stirs up new menu at Placid Lakes Country Club


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - Things
are really cooking at Placid
Lakes Country Club and Chef
Adam Proctor is the man creat-
ing a stir.
"I've always been around
cooking. My mother is assistant
manager and head cook at Lake
Placid Elementary, and my
grandfather operated the Tower
Restaurant when it first
opened," Proctor said.
After Proctor graduated from
Johnson and Wales University
(North Miami campus) and
received his associate of culi-
nary arts, he interned at Disney
and most recently was the sous
chef at Jeni's On South Lake in


Avon Park.
"A friend of my mom's said
the new owners of Placid Lakes
Country Club were looking for
a chef. I feel like I'm in the
right place at the right time,"
Proctor said. The golf club and
course were purchased last year
by Rodney and Lisa Davis and
Jeff and Dee Dee Harstine and
has undergone a major $3 mil-
lion renovation.
"Rodney Davis, the owner,
and I want to create a quiet
atmosphere with this restaurant.
We want it to be a place that's
laid back - where realtors and
business people can bring their
clients. This is a real opportuni-'
ty for me and I'm excited about


it. I like every aspect of cook-
ing," Proctor said.
The restaurant opened Aug.
1, and offers a house salad or
Caesar for $4.50. Sandwich
choices are chicken salad, egg
salad, ham and cheese, ham-
burgers and hot dogs, ranging in
price from $4.75 to $5.95.
There's a tasty chicken strip
basket with French fries for
$5.95, and sodas and a full bar
are available.
Dee Dee Harstine, the office
manager and wife of the co-
owner said, "We're already get-
ting lots of requests to serve
breakfasts and dinners so hope-
fully we'll be adding those later
after the golf course is officially


open Sept. 1. Until then only
the restaurant, pro shop, putting
green and driving range are


open." Hours are presently from 10
Placid Lakes Country Club is a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 465-4333 for
at 3601 Placid Lake Blvd. additional information.


STUDENTS
Continued from 13A
elected those brand-new, not yet
students from the gymnasium
and delivered them to our
room. The memory is still just
as vivid as the day I endured it.
It's a funny now but not
then, kind of a deal.
The children and I had safe-
ly navigated the halls and
arrived at the door of our
room, which I opened with a
flourish.
"All right boys and girls," I
had said brightly, complaisant
in my ignorance, "hang up
your coat and sit wherever you
want."
Well, an hour later I was still
trying to re-establish order.
I remember one little girl in
particular, who stood in tears,
because she didn't know how
to unbutton her jacket.
So believe me when I say
Enid Dejesus and Sandra
Ramirez, who team teach a
preschool class, have worked a
miracle with their mostly 4-
year-old charges.
The children never missed a
beat when I entered the class-
room. Even taking out a cam-
era and shooting pictures with
a flash didn't spook them into
a stampede.
Once I reassured them that
each would have a chance to
see the pictures I took, and
they could each take as long as
they liked to look, they calmed
right down and went about
their business, stopping only
when it was their turn to see.
In the meantime, everyone
had something to do. Three
boys poured and measured at
the water table. Five children
worked with Playdough, while
another flew solo over at the
computer.
Every child knew what was
expected. Every child knew
how to do whatever had to be
done.
It wasn't always so.
Dejesus had laughed when I
asked her how many children
she had in her class. Twenty,
she'd replied, but in the first
weeks of school it feels like
40, 50 on the very first day.
The children come in kick-
ing and screaming; crying and
biting. It is not a pretty picture.
And the rules, while simple,
are hard to learn.
No fighting.
No making people feel bad.
Be safe.,


RCMA
Continued from 13A
They teach about colors too,
and numbers and the alphabet,
as well as how to tie shoes.
Their children learn how to put
toys away and play by the
rules.
Some children are harder to
reach than others. That's when
you have to remember who is
the child and who is the adult,
Dejesus said, with a rueful grin.
"Starting every year it takes
about six months to break a
child in," she said. "Language
is a problem," she added, "but
we talk and talk, and keep
being nice, and in time you get
everything under control."
You don't.go into early child
education expecting to make
money, Dejesus warned. In
fact, some entry positions only
pay minimum wage. On the
other hand, both Dejesus .and
Ramirez say the non-monetary
rewards are tremendous - like
the day a student sits down the
first time he's asked.
The Lake Placid center is at
124 Washington St. The tele-
phone number is 699-3798.


Always, there is language.
Children are gently prodded to
use words instead of gestures.
The teachers say everything
out loud, and call things by
their names.
The children learn quickly,
within weeks, most of them
know to stand out of the way
of the swing, where things are
in the classroom, and they've
made progress in not hitting.
Fighting is a problem. Many
parents teach their children to
fight back, or to get in the first
punch.
But then, Dejesus explained,
there would be nothing but
fighting all the time.
The children have to learn
how to work together, to take
turns, forgive honest accidents,
and work out differences with-
out drawing blood.


The grown-ups set the
example and define the limits.
And they do that over, and
over and over again. It's about
patience and persistence.
The reward for all that effort
are children who become stu-
dents, ready and eager for
"big" school. Ready, in other
words, to hang up a coat and
sit in a seat.
I know one ex-kindergarten
teacher who has nothing but
gratitude and respect for that
kind of success.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley works at being a med-
ical transcriptionist. Any busi-
ness person with a job they
would like to spotlight in the
Tuffin'It With Tuffley feature,
call 385-6155, ext. 528.

Be leery of time tested work at home schemes


"The majority of make
money at home schemes are
swindles," said George Husser,
manager of Missouri Better
Business Bureau and author of
"Crooked Financial Schemes
Exposed," 1929.
The words Husser wrote
more than 75 years ago ring
true today. Vintage schemes
don't die, they simply resurface
with a new slant. Here are a few
interesting classified ad
schemes from the 1920s and
'30s that could be easily
tweaked and reappear as a
money making opportunity in
today's newspapers.
At the turn of the century
most housewives were skilled
at using sewing machines.
Schemers took advantage of
this fact by placing classified
ads in local newspapers alluring
housewives with sewing
machines to write for particu-
lars on how to make ''big
money." After responding vic-
tims received a form letter urg-


ing them to send $1.50 for a
sample dress and told they
would be considered for
employment as a company
seamstress.
Victims who responded did
receive a sample dress.
However, accompanying the
dress was a second letter urging
them to mail an additional $5 as
deposits on dresses they would
be required to sew for the com-
pany. This second request tend-
ed to discourage victims from
responding because they
already paid money for a sam-
ple dress that was priced well
above its true value.
At first glance, this scheme
appears to be petty and possibly
not even a scheme at all.
However, it takes on a much
more sinister appearance when
you crunch the numbers.
One company that became
the subject of a "postal fraud
order" collected almost
$200,000 from housewives
seeking home employment.


Another in Stanford,
Conn., collected
$90,000 in six
months and another
company collected
$50,000 for the sam-
ple garments. During
this schemes heyday
a New Jersey compa-
ny was mailing
housewives more
than 800 outfits a
day at a $1.50 a
dress.
Investigation
revealed that these


CONSUMI

OUTREACH

Mark
Mathosia


make-a-dress com-
panies were paying
an average of only 25 cents
each for the sample dresses
mailed to housewives. Fraud
charges were levied .against
several schemers. Authorities
charged principals with taking a
huge sum of money ... "from
the poor, many of them widows
with children to support."
Another interesting scheme
from the 1920s involved gilding


greeting cards. This
scheme surfaced just
before major holidays
like Easter and
Christmas. Gilding is
the craft of adding
gold or other metal, in
).. the form of leaf or
" dust, to the surface of
materials like wood
ER and paper. Victims
>H who responded to
newspaper ads were
sold "tinting kits" for
:n $1 each and promised
payment for gilding
greeting cards sup-
plied by the company.
Cards were gilded and


mailed back to the company.
However, home gilders never
received payment for their
work. Instead, company repre-
sentatives gave excuses as to
why the cards were unaccept-
able. Like the sewing machine
scam, the devil is in the finan-
cial details.
Investigation revealed that


one company sold gilding kits
to approximately 7,000 victims.
Of the 7,000 home gilders only
42 were paid. It was later dis-
covered that the tinting outfits
sold to home gilders .cost the
company about 17 cents each to
produce. Corporate profits
came from selling the greeting
card gilding kits to ad respon-
dents for $1 each.
Finally, here's an interesting
scam involving the addressing
of envelopes and circulars.
Suckers were lured in through
classified ads promising $25 to
$100 per week for your spare
time. Respondents were told
that to participate in the
employment opportunity they
must purchase a special pen. No
other pen would ,be acceptable.
The pen cost $1.65 and after
you purchased it, the money
would start rolling in.
Victims of the scam mailed
in the $1.65 and received the
pen and circulars to address.
However, they never, heard


from the company again. As it
turned out, the special pen was
not special at all. It could be
purchased at any stationary
store for about 15 cents. By the
time the scam was uncovered
crooks made thousand of dol-
lars on the cheap pens.
In a future column I'll report
on more vintage scams. For
now, be on the lookout for vin-
tage schemes that surface with a
new angle. And, never forget
the time tested cliche, caveat
emptor. Let the buyer beware.

New coffee shop to grace renovated Buckeye Building


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Nightlife may
be returning to downtown,
Sebring with the opening of a
new coffee shop.
The plans are for it to go in
on the ground floor of the
Buckeye Building on the Circle.
The building was purchased
recently by Jim Rimer and
Gene Brenner. The pair have
developed a number of proper-
ties on and around the Circle
and have been relentless sup-
porters of the downtown area.
The single largest tenant is
scheduled to be a coffee shop
that will occupy the space for-
merly known as the Greenleaf
Bistro.
To be operated by Bill Daley
Jr. and his wife, Allison, the
shop will be like a homegrown
version of Starbucks.
"We like to go someplace
like the place we're planning

Daley said he and his wife
took a long drive to discuss the
up side and the down side.
"That's when we decided to
go for it," he said.
Once they resolved to move
forward, they started a plan as
to how it would be laid out and
what kind of amenities they
would offer.
In the past there have been a
couple of similar efforts. The
Xpress Yourself Cafe was a cof-

poets and musicians in the
downtown area, while a similar

was in a space in the strip mall

have ice cream to start with, but
we plan on having that later."
The initial response has been
good. Daley said he has found
the people he has talked to are
excited about the prospect and a
couple of performers also have
signed on to play.
Meanwhile, Rimer and
Brenner have been hard at work
clearing the space for the cof-
feehouse. Their goal is to have


it ready for occupancy by the
first week in September.
"He wants to have it up and
running by the time the Second
Annual Run to the Heartland

the first of October," Brenner
said.
The pair are well under way
to have the coffee shop's space
ready for them.
"We ripped out a couple

Meanwhile, Brenner said
they also have rented the former
Jim's TV Repair slot to a new
music store and are moving
ahead to the next phase of the
project.
"We're doing the upstairs

They currently have two

Police: Angry
motorist shoots,
kills road
worker, wounds

a second
EUSTIS - An angry
motorist shot and killed one
road worker and wounded
another after getting into an
argument with them Friday in
central Florida, officials said.
Gary Monroe, 66, of
Paisley, returned and shot the
two workers, according to the
Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's deputies caught him
about 30 minutes later, the
Orlando Sentinel reported on
its Web site.
Injured worker Jeremy
Evans, 32, of Ocala, was
flown to Orlando Regional
Medical Center with a report-
ed gunshot wound to the lung,
emergency officials said.
Sheriff's officials identified
the slain worker as Foster Lee
"Pete" Maloy, 71, of Ocala.


"It's very sad," said Lake
Public Works Director Jim
Stivender. "These kind of
things don't have to happen."
Investigators said the con-
struction company reported an
altercation Thursday with
Monroe. He returned to the
scene just after 9 a.m. Friday,
the sheriff's office said.
Stivender said the crew
worked for Art Walker
Construction, which is resur-
facing and widening county
roads. Eustis is 28 miles
northwest of Orlando.

Radio station's
'inmates' scare
motorists, rile
deputies
LAND O'LAKES - A
radio station stunt that had
three listeners dressed up like
escaped jail inmates went
awry Friday when dozens of
people called 911 and the
resulting ruckus tied up traffic
during morning rush hour,


authorities said.
The three people, shackled
and dressed in what appeared
to be jail uniforms, were com-
peting to try to get motorists
to give them a ride, Pasco
County sheriff's spokesman
Kevin Doll said. The first one
back to the studios of Tampa
station WXTB-FM - 98
Rock - would win a trip to
Los Angeles in conjunction
with a new Fox show called
"Prison Break."
But after 30 or 40 calls
from "terrified" motorists and
residents, sheriff's deputies
responded in force and took
them into custody for real,
Doll said. They were released
after about an hour.
"We took it quite seriously
and responded with 'every
available deputy we had in
that area," Doll said.
No charges were filed,
because the bogus inmates
didn't forcefully try to get in
any of the cars. But deputies
still aren't happy about the
stunt.
Doll said Florida law
would have allowed motorists
and deputies to shoot them if
they were seen to pose a
threat.
A message left with the
radio station wasn't immedi-
ately returned Friday.

Homeland Security to lower mass transit threat alert


By LARA JAKES JORDAN
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - The Homeland Security
Department lowered the terror threat level Friday
for the nation's mass transit systems, effective
after the day's rush hour.
Homeland 'Security Secretary Michael
Chertoff said he would end the high alert for city
buses, subways and trains after 36 days of being
at code orange in response to the deadly July 7
rush-hour bombings in London.
His order - effective at 8 p.m. local time
Friday - was returning the national mass transit
threat level to code yellow, signifying an elevat-
ed risk instead of the high-alert orange.
"While we are changing the threat level at this
time, we continue to urge state and local officials,
transportation authorities and the general public
to remain alert," Chertoff said in a statement.
"Public -vigilance is very important, and we
- encourage all citizens to keep a watchful eye for
items left unattended or suspicious behavior and
report any incidents to local authorities immedi-
ately."
Despite no specific, credible evidence of a


threat against the United States, authorities raised
the alert last month as a precautionary measure
against any copycat attacks inspired by the
bombings of three London subway lines and a
bus.
A total of 56 people, including four suicide
bombers, were killed in the London attacks. U.S.
officials extended the orange alert after follow-up
attacks in London two weeks later, on July 21.
Chertoff said, authorities will continue closely
monitoring threat intelligence for any indication
of an attack, as "we are also aware that the
London and Madrid bombings were conducted
without warning."
A March 11, 2004, attack on the Madrid com-
muter rail network killed 191 people and wound-
ed more than 1,500. Islamic extremists claimed
responsibility for the bombings on behalf of al-
Qaida and in revenge for the presence of Spanish
troops in Iraq.
The monthlong alert in the United States tar-
geted only mass transit systems, and marked the
seventh time the terror threat advisory level had
been raised to orange since it was created in
2002.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Life out


of context
My friend and her family
have been experiencing hard-
ships for 1 1/2 years that
would crush the heartiest of
souls.
Her husband refers to his
wife's illness as "the perfect
storm." There's no specific
explanation - even by the
doctors.
Comas, both natural and
medically induced; inability
to speak and walk; seizures
and medications; hospitals
and rehabilitation facilities -
all have become their new
reality. This once vibrant
mother of five is very slowly
regaining her speech and is
able to walk again. But the
road ahead will take contin-
ued faith and perseverance.
When her husband first
described the nightmare they
were experiencing, I felt sus-
pended in some kind of hor-
rific story from which I
hoped I'd soon awaken.
It seemed like "life out of
context" - as if someone had
taken a beautiful true story
and pulled out a few para-
graphs to give a different
meaning or twist to what had
been intended all along.
This often happens when
people quote a verse of
Scripture out of context and
base decisions or make
excuses according to that
verse. But, if the preceding
chapter or accompanying
verses are read, the true
intent is obvious.
For example, the teaching
on submission by wives has
been pulled out of context
and misconstrued so often;
that it's true intent has been
lost on most men and
women.
But, taken in context of
the entire chapter, we see the
Apostle Paul's intent. "Be
imitators of God and live a
life of love, just as Jesus
loved us and gave himself up
for us as a fragrant offering
and sacrifice to God."
(Ephesians 5: la & 2, NIV).
The chapter continues to
call men and women to sexu-
al purity, wholesome talk and
thankful hearts. He reminds
them that they should "live
as children of light and find
out what pleases the Lord."
(vs. 8b & 10)
He instructs them to be
wise and filled with God's
Spirit. Then he says, "Submit
to one another out of rever-
ence for Christ." Only then
are wives told to submit to
their husbands in their God-
ordained roles as head of the
home. And quickly, the
tables turn to the husbands to
love their wives as Christ
loved the church - sacrifi-
cially.
Husbands who love this
way invite willing submis-
sion because the wife is nur-
tured, cherished and protect-
ed - and he gains her deep
respect. Contextual accuracy
brings harmony and accept-
ance.
In the situation with my
friends, I have watched a
horrific "out of context" life-
shattering event be placed
into the context of faith and
committed, marital love and
family togetherness. The hus-
band cherishes his wife and
is her advocate. He nurtures
and protects her as no other
can. The children are wit-
nessing the meaning of true
love.
Their story is not "life out
of context." Rather, it's just
one chapter still being writ-
ten that they have placed into
God's hands. Selah.

Family makes a ministry


U-turn back to Sebring


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Bible Fellowship Church's new asso-
ciate pastor makes a U-turn from his work in South
Africa.
Todd Patterson and his wife, Susan, and their two
children, Rachel and Seth, have happily accepted the
call to ministry in Sebring. But, this call uniquely posi-
tioned them to ..make a U turn from work in South
Africa -.work they had assumed would be a lifetime
commitment - to Sebring, where Susan not only grew
up but is the daughter of Bible Fellowship Church's
Senior Pastor Dr. Eugene Bengtson.
The Pattersons met while
students at Word of Life I .
Institute in New York state.
He had a burning vision to
pioneer Word of Life youth
ministry in South Africa. She
came alongside and shared his
vision.
A Sebring resident all her
life, Susan had participated in
mission trips and then trav-
eled with the Word of Life
Impact Singers.
Todd and five other guys at
Word of Life prayed and
sought the Lord about their
heart's desire. The group grew
to about 10. When their hope
became reality, four of the
original group went as a team '3
to South Africa.
The Pattersons married in
1994 and arrived in -
Johannesburg, South Africa,
on Sept. 17, 1998, with ^ T .
Rachel, 2, in tow. Three and .
one-half years later, Seth was
born while on furlough in the
United States and returned to
South Africa when he was
only 5 weeks old.
"From the start, we wanted
our children to view South
Africa as their home. We
wanted them to be South '
Africans," Todd said. ..
And, for the most part -
except for the occasional vis-
its to the States - Rachel and The Patterson family a
Seth grew up as South Susan, Todd and Seth, re
Africans. They loved the cul- South Africa. Zebras (rig
ture, the natural wild life, nature park in South Afi
excelled in school and can
sing the South African nation-
al anthem in four languages. Both have been little mis-
sionary ambassadors in their sphere of influence.
The whole family has been a breath of fresh air to the
South Africans by their Christian witness and in raising
the esteem of Americans in their eyes.

Mission begun
"Our goal was to establish a local church youth
organization with three objectives," Todd said.
"Evangelism through the local church; discipleship;
and, to encourage leaders."
But, first they had to get settled. There weren't any
contacts in South Africa, except with a local pastor
through an acquaintance.
A family in this pastor's church reluctantly agreed to
house the Patterson family for a few weeks till they
could find a place of their own. Their reluctance had
come from people telling them they were "crazy to
allow Americans into their home, especially with a 2-
year-old child."
However, they had not yet met charming Rachel.
Nor had they known an American couple so eager to


embrace the South Atrican culture .nd
not bring the "Amencan \\%a'" to e er -
thing.
Soon, June and Leon Strydom became mom and dad
to them and grandma and grandpa to their children. Yet,
the Pattersons had some concerns.
"We wondered about banking, getting a car and find-
ing a place to live. But, God had it all worked out in
June and Leon," Susan said. "June was in banking and
Leon in motor vehicles."
Within days, these needs were met. They lived with
the Strydoms for six weeks and built a friendship. With
this supportive relationship, Todd eagerly set out to

develop his plan.
But, his first meeting
with a youth pastor
was disappointing. The
leader told him, "Go ..
back to America. An
American program '
won't work."
Deflated, Todd
called his Dad in
Indiana. Todd said he told him, "You mean you went all
the way to South Africa to have one person tell you no
and quit. Don't give up."
Encouraged, Todd went to another church - Midrand
Chapel. The pastor, John French, was actually the son
of the man who had started the church in which Todd
had grown up in Indiana. The youth pastor and his wife,
Alan and Rachael Schuster, welcomed Todd and Susan.
This became the first Word of Life work, and the
Schusters are now on staff. Fifteen other churches are
presently involved with Word of Life programs.
Todd oversaw all the programs - learning firsthand


,IL.lders
In turn, Todd designed eC jngelisic events-
often sporting events where, after the activities, the
gospel was presented. All of the churches came togeth-
er and the students invited their unsaved friends.
He prepared quarterly seminars and mid-year con-
ferences to encourage the leadership. Several Word of
Life staff met frequently with the various youth leaders
for one-on-one encouragement.

Mission fulfilled
The Word of Life youth programs were in full-
swing. Students were being saved and growing in their
Faith. More and more South
Africans were in leadership
roles - a fulfillment of the
S- long-term goal of placing this
work in the hands of the South
. . ' aAfricans. Presently, there are
three South African couples
and three American couples
working together as part of
Word of Life, South Africa
staff. It was time to take it to
the next level.
So the Pattersons came to the
United States last fall with the
objective of raising the funds to
move the ministry forward.
And God blessed their efforts.
- However, they didn't expect
the Lord to stir their hearts in a
S --new direction. A vision began
to emerge in Todd's mind - a
sense that he had fulfilled the
mission God had for him in
South Africa and had taken it as
far as he could in leadership.
He even began questioning
Susan as to whether she would
ever see their family leaving
Johannesburg. Then he asked
her if she thought Sebring
might someday be their home.
"She looked at me like I was

"I told him not to even men-
tion such a thing to me
unless he knew God was
speaking to him about
" this," Susan said.
, 'He observed the Bible
. .Fellowship Church family
S ", . and longed to minister
j . _ - among them.
"My heart was stirred
for men needing disciple-
ship," Todd said.
When he was at a
breakfast with some of the
elders one morning, the
thought was thrown out
that the Pattersons would
never leave South Africa.
,: But, Todd unexpectedly
replied, "I would leave
__ South Africa if God
showed me that's what
I'm supposed to do." Their mouths dropped open.
As they prepared to return to South Africa, Bible
Fellowship's need for another associate pastor also was
becoming apparent. Todd left the possibility open,
thinking that his preference would be to common board
at Bible Fellowship Church. However, he made it very
clear that he would never do so on a preference - only
on God's specific leading.
It was the most difficult return trip they had ever
made. Even Seth cried uncontrollably. Back in

Students and parents benefit from school choiceASeats4.50 for Matinees
1901 (U.S. 0i7 NOlRTH � oI


Question: A great deal is being made
about something called "school choice"
these days. Could you explain this concept
and tell me whether or not you are in favor
of it?
Dr. Dobson: School choice is an idea
whose time has come. It would give parents
the right to decide whether to send their
children to a public, private or religious
institution, and even to select a specific
school to which they would be sent.
I favor this idea for several reasons. First,
giving parents a choice would improve the
quality of education because it would force
school personnel to compete for students.
That would make them more responsive to
parents. Competition always improves the
performance of human beings, whether one
is selling hamburgers or automobiles. It
encourages people to serve more willingly,
to operate more efficiently and to do a good
job.
That is the heart of the free-enterprise
system. It provides incentives to those who
work hard and think creatively.
Monopolies, by contrast, become unre-
sponsive and stilted. We've seen that lethar-
gy in the U.S. Postal Service, in the various
departments of motor vehicles, in Amtrak
and in the present educational system. I
believe test scores will rise and parents will
be more satisfied when schools that do a
great job are allowed to grow. Their budg-
ets will expand and their teachers will be
proud, while disorganized and unrespon-
sive schools with poor teachers and half-
hearted administrators will wither on the


vine. That prospect of competi-
tion makes educators nervous -
but it makes many of us excited.
The second reason I favor
school choice is related to the
first: It would put power in the
hands of parents. If Dad or Mom
became dissatisfied with a partic-
ular school, he or she could take
their child to a nearby school that
better serves the child's needs.
With that youngster would go the
voucher and the money it repre-
sents. As a bad school began to
dwindle under this system, you
can bet there would be a new
motivation among administrators
to listen to parents and accommo-
date their concerns. As it stands


Focus
ON THE
FAMImY

Dr. James
Dobson


today, parents are virtually powerless
unless they organize and storm a school-
board meeting. There has to be a better way
to encourage cooperation between families
and professional educators.
The third benefit of school choice is that
it would grant poor people the same options
now held by the affluent. Today, if upper-
class parents are dissatisfied with the local
public schools - or if they prefer Christian
education or a first-class prep school -
they have the resources to send their chil-
dren where they wish. An underprivileged
family has no such alternative. They are
stuck with the school in their neighbor-
hood, even if it is rife with violence and
rebellion. President Bill Clinton, who cam-
paigned against school choice in California,


sent his daughter to an excellent
private school in Washington,
D.C. I would like to see everyone
have the opportunity he had.
Recent statistics released by
the U.S. Department of
Education indicate that nearly
half of our nation's adult popula-
tion is functionally illiterate. The
future looks even dimmer. It's
forecast that three out of every
five kids in our current school-
age population will either drop
out or "graduate" with an educa-
tion below the seventh-grade
level!
Given that dismal track
record, small wonder the move-
ment to place accountability in


the hands of the people to whom it belongs
- the staff, parents and students at each
individual school - is gaining ground.
Until we rediscover the time-tested axiom
that families who care about, and are
allowed to participate in, their children's
education are the crucial contributing factor
to classroom success, I'm convinced school
choice is the wave of the future.

Ex-girlfriend's request puts man on the spot

from three years ago has asked
me to help her work on a project
that will further her career.
I am already established, and
have been known to help people
on occasion. I want her to suc-
ceed, but the problem with this
particular charity case is the rea-
son we broke up. It happened just
days before I planned to propose
to her, when I found out that she
had been unfaithful to me.
Originally, I didn't want to
help her and told her I thought

the situation would make me uncomfort-
able because I would have to spend a lot of
time with her. However, when I related this
to a friend, heetold me to get over it and

sucker for even considering it.)
I am over the heartbreak I once felt with
her, although it took a while. I'm dating

How should I handle this? My initial
response was "No - I think I'd feel too

you don't, MY gut tells me you
are going to get emotionally
involved and get hurt again.
Dear Abby: Our daughter,
"Brooke," is nearly 7 and very
attached to our family dog,
"Tuffy." Tuffy is 13, deaf, going
blind and has difficulty walking.
We have spent a fortune keeping
Tuffy with us, including tumor
removals, but it has reached the
point where we don't want him
to suffer anymore. We are con-
sidering having him euthanized.
We have discussed what will


happen to Tuffy with Brooke. We asked her
whether she would like to come with us
when we take Tuffy to the vet, or if she'd
like to say goodbye and stay with a friend
while my wife and I go. She voted for the
latter, but in discussing it further she gets
very upset.
The alternative is to lie to her and have
Tuffy put down while Brooke is at school,
and tell her that he passed away during the
day. Either way, she will be very sad. All I
want is to spare my daughter as much grief
as possible. What do you think? - Feeling
Guilty in San Jose
Dear Feeling Guilty: First of all, please
stop feeling guilty. When a pet can no
longer be active and enjoy life, its owner is
doing it a favor to give it an easy way out.
(Human beings should be so fortunate!) It's
normal for your daughter to be upset at the


idea her pet will die, and she should not be
present when it is put to sleep. That's too
big a dose of reality for a child her age.
While some might not agree with me, I also
feel that it would be a kindness not to tell
her exactly when you plan to take Tuffy to
the vet.
Dear Abby: My 7-year-old son almost
always ends up in my bed in the middle of
the night. I am a single mother, so this does-
n't really bother me, but I'm beginning to
wonder if I should start discouraging this.
What do you think? - Thinking Twice in
Battle Creek, Mich.
Dear Thinking Twice: I think it's
important that you find out why your son
isn't able to make it through the night in his
own bed. If you can't get to the bottom of
it, then schedule an appointment for the two
of you with his pediatrician.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren,
also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was
founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

ARTS & LEISURE


Adventure begins in the pages of books Sexual nrorogation


I didn't mind see-
ing it twice--it was
just as much fun the
second time around.
Perhaps you also saw
the animated film
"Madagascar," and
felt a kindred longing
for travel and new
experiences.
The animators LIBRAR
introduced many -
aspects of this per- Carol F
haps last paradise. -
The island of
Madagascar is found in the
Indian Ocean and is famous for
its lemurs, fabulous beaches,
thermal baths, and unique trop-
ical culture.
The movie showcased a par-
adise of tropical jungles, plenti-
ful fish and fruits, mountains
and amazing waterfalls, but it
also showed World War II
planes that crashed into the jun-
gle treetops.
The storyline is colorfully
presented in the Erica David
children's book, "Born to be
Wild," which tells the tale. of
Marty the zebra who longs to
return to nature, escapes from
the New York Zoo with a num-
ber of friends, and ends up ship-
wrecked on the island of
Madagascar. How do you find
out what is the "real"
Madagascar?
You could continue on the
fiction route and read the Nora
Roberts tale "Hot Ice," which
follows the trail 'of jewelry
thieves from New York to
Madagascar. Better yet, get the
real scoop in "Southeast Africa:
1880 to the Present: Reclaiming


a Region of Natural


Y LINES

Fesselink


Wealth" by Daniel
Harmon. He recounts
the colorful, some-
times violent history
of Southern Africa,
including Zimbabwe,
Zambia, Malawi,
Mozambique, and the
island of
Madagascar.
Two videos that
should open your
eyes are: the National
Geographic Society


special, "The Wilds of
Madagascar," a documentary
on the unique plants and ani-
mals of Madagascar's remote
Ankarana plateau; or take home
"Madagascar: A World Apart."
Maya Angelou narrates this
segment of the Living Edens
video series, which highlights
the extraordinary flora and
fauna on this isolated island
paradise.
Coming out of our technical
services area and onto the
shelves, just in time to take all
of us armchair travelers on a
magical trip, is the World
Odysseys DVD series, with 24
exotic destinations for your
exploration. We. hope you'll
find one or more places besides
Madagascar that you've never
been to but always wondered
about, and take home these rich
and authentic film experiences.
If you are looking for a more
domestic type of exploration,
then our DVD series on historic
hotels should certainly appeal.
The life of luxury in all its per-
mutations is presented through
tours of wonderful places such


as "The Delta Queen," "The
King and Prince," "The
Windsor Hotel," "Lake Placid
Lodge," "Le Pavilion," "The
Jefferson," "Old Tavern at
Grafton," "Ponchartrain Hotel,"
"The 1842 Inn," "Green
Mountain Inn," "Hotel
Dupont," "Mohonk Mountain
House," and "The Sagamore."
History and beauty combine
with more than the comforts of
home in the 34 hotels show-
cased in this series. You'll want
to visit one or more on your
next trip, just to see for your-
self!
This is the month Avon Park
Library moves part of their col-
lection to temporary quarters.
The long-awaited renovation
will make some much-needed
enlargement and reallocation of
spaces inside the library.
Aug. 18 is librarian Don
Brusha's target date to reopen
the library with limited service
at the 9 East Main Street site in
the former home of the Metcalf
Hardware. Besides the free
Saturday Film Series, the tem-
porary location will have best
sellers, popular fiction, film and
TV videos, DVDs, and refer-
ence service. Internet, however,
will not be available.

Carolyn Hesselink is the admin-
istrative secretary of the
Highlands County Library
System. Library cards are
always free. For information,

Last week we dis-
cussed asexual pro-
rogation, which is to
grow plants with the
same characteristics
as the parent plant. In
this column, we will
discuss sexual proro-
gation.
Growing plants
from seeds is the
least expensive way
to produce large
numbers of new
plants, but the
seedlings may have
varying characteris-
tics and this may be a

disadvantage. However, genetic
variability offers an opportunity
to select seedlings with differ-
ent features.
Seed propagation is a means
of reproducing plants that are
extremely difficult or impossi-
ble to propagate vegetatively.
Most palms are grown from
seed because they are single
stemmed, and cuttings can not
be taken without destroying the
parent plant. Wax myrtle and
native azaleas are usually prop-
agated by seeds because asexu-
al method are less successful.
There are no firm rules for
determining when seeds of
selected plants are mature.and
ready for collection. Changes in
size, shape, weight, and color of
fruit serve as visual guides to
seed maturation.


For example, fruit
of the southern mag-
...i nolia are a brilliant
red, and those of the
4 pindo palm are
orange and somewhat
soft when mature.
-. Fruit should be col-
S*- " elected during this
stage because after its
ING fall to the ground via-
fON ability may decrease.
ON The period Qf seed
- viability for many sub-
'nds tropical and tropical'
master plants is short - some-
ners times only three to 10
- days. This situation is
especially true for seeds coming
from pulpy or fleshy fruit such
as that of palms; these seeds
should be planted immediately
after they harvested and
cleaned.
Some seeds do not have to be
planted immediately but can be
stored under controlled envi-
ronmental conditions. Although
optimum seed should be sepa-
rated from fleshy pulp as soon
as possible after collection.
Proper moisture, oxygen,
temperature, and sometimes
light must be provided for ger-
mination. Although optimum
conditions differ with plant
species, general recommenda-
tions can be made.
The germination medium
must hold adequate water yet
drain freely. A mixture of equal


'Cabaret' opens at Highlands Little Theatre


Wednesday evening's large
premiere audience was wel-
comed to the first scene of
Kander and Ebb's hugely suc-
cessful musical by the Kit Kat
Klub's fay and glittering Emcee
who promised the audience an
evening of beauty, happiness,
and pleasure. The play is a
- primer on surviving on this
planet.
Dustin Martz, a new face at
Highlands Little Theatre, gives
an energetic and spontaneous
performance as the duplicitous
master of ceremonies while
those assembled learn never to
trust anyone with too much eye
shadow.
Immediately the playgoers
are introduced to the American
writer Clifford Bradshaw and a
mysterious German, Earnst
Ludwig, who are hurtling to
Berlin in a railway compart-
ment. Bradshaw is played with
sincerity by Christopher Hayes,
an innocent who aspires to
write his first novel, and
Ludwig, played forcefully by
Phil Attinger, is an opportunist
who waits to exploit Bradshaw
who eventually learns to be
more vigilant with strangers.


Clifford establish-
es himself in a Berlin
boarding house run
by Fraulein
Schneider, whose W:-
pineapple of a part is .
beautifully per-
formed by rristin
Taylor. Here he
meets Fraulein Kost, -
another roomer, ON S
vibrantly fulfilled by
Loraine Biron and Roy I
Herr Shultz, a fruit
merchant, heartrendingly por-
trayed by Pete Pollard; these
new friends teach young
Clifford that age is no barrier to
love's many varieties.
The stage is now set for the
entrance of one of musical
comedies most celebrated hero-
ines, Sally Bowles, reprised by
Martile Blackman, who created
the role at HLT some 18 years
ago. Sally is a free-spirit, unpre-
dictable, unscrupulous, and
unrestrained English rose and a
lot of fun. With her perfectly
marvelous Louise Brooks hair-
do and Catherine Zeta-Jones
looks, the Bradshaw boy does-
n't stand a chance.

iedy smiles and dancing
- ability have attracted a
herd of men who embrace Ross
Anderson, Art Harriman, Wes
Hollan, Gary Johnson, John
Ritter, Richard Shepard, Eric
Harper, and the ubiquitous
Larry Wollangk.
The show is full of show
stopping and memorable songs:
Sally's "Don't Tell Mama" and
"Mein Herr," Fraulein
Schneider's "So What," Gary
Johnson's "Tomorrow Belongs
To Me," Herr Schneider's
"What Would You Do?" and
Cliff's "Why Should I Wake

volumes of peat moss and
builder's sand is suitable, but
other materials such as shred-
ded sphagnum, vermiculite, and
perlite used alone or in combi-
nations are satisfactory.
The particle size of a germi-
nation medium in relation to the
seed size should be considered.
A small seed positioned
between large particles may dry
rapidly even though the medi-
um particles are moist, because
there is inadequate surface con-
tact between the seed and the
germination medium.
The medium should be ster-
ile to prevent disease. Sterile
propagation media can be pur-
chased, or a small quantity can
be sterilized in an oven
although the odor may be offen-
sive. Heating a 2-inch layer of
moist medium at 220 degrees
Fahrenheit for one hour will kill
pathogenic fungi. The medium
should be moistened before the
seed are planted and kept moist
but not wet for optimum germi-
nation.
Seeds should not be planted
deeper than one to two times
their diameter. Small seeds
should be scattered over the
germination medium surface or
planted thickly in rows.

AFRICA
Continued from 1C
Johannesburg, they prayed fer-
vently as they continued in their
work, feeling unsettled.
Todd had been surprised by
his change of heart from
Johannesburg to Sebring and
wanted the Lord's confirma-
tion. While at Honeyridge
Baptist, their home church in
South Africa, the Lord spoke
through Philippians 1: 7 & 8
(NIV).
"It is right for me to feel this
way about all of you, since I
have you in my heart. God can
testify how I long for all of you
with the affection of Christ
Jesus."
Todd wrote "BFC" in his
Bible next to that verse and
prayed God would show him
beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Then Todd received the invi-
tation from Bible Fellowship
Church to send his resume.
They notified Word of Life of
their considerations. But, they
had to keep everything to them-
selves until they were sure.
Even the children didn't know.
At last, a sermon on I Samuel
9 confirmed the call. Todd saw
himself as going about his busi-
ness in South Africa - not look-


ing for anything to change -
and having God approach him
and change his heart.
So, he sent his resume to
Bible Fellowship Church will-
ing to submit to the Lord based
on whatever the elders decided.
When the call came to
become an associate pastor
there, they shared it. with the
children. The emotion ranged
from excitement to sadness for
their 5- and 9-year-olds.
"They loved their friends,
their school (where they were
the only Americans) 'and
church. They loved South
Africa. It was really all they
knew," Susan said.
When their co-workers and
friends learned about their plans
at a barbecue, everyone was
shocked and dismayed. They
didn't want the Pattersons,
whom they loved, to leave. Plus
they wondered what would
become of the ministry.
"This was clearly one of the
most difficult decisions we had
to make, but we assured them
that God would raise up anoth-
er couple. Word of Life would
not die when we left," Susan
said. And God has supplied a
key South African leader.
Johannesburg, while rich in
natural beauty and many won-
derful people, also is a danger-


ous place to live. The Pattersons
made adjustments, taking nec-
essary precautions.
However, they didn't focus
on that aspect; but, walked by
faith.
As a family, they want to
remember South Africa and
their friends. They are all richer
for having lived there.
"But, just as we went to
South Africa to become South
Africans (not Americans living
in South Africa), we have come
back to America to be
Americans," Todd said.
Family life in the States is
different and there are new
adjustments. For example, Todd
is less available since he no
longer works from home.
"The children and I are
adjusting to sharing Daddy,"
Susan said.
Also, Susan is preparing
Rachel's readiness for school as
there are differences in curricu-
lum. But, they are excited to be
close to Susan's parents and
help them as well as having
Rachel and Seth have
Grandma's and Grandpa's input
into their lives.

U-turn complete
"Our seven years in South
Africa grew us up spiritually
and emotionally. We learned to


depend on the Lord and on each
other because we did not have
anyone else on whom to
depend," Susan said, thought-
fully. "We learned a lot through
trial and error."
Having worked with people
from all walks of life, the
Pattersons will abundantly
impact Bible Fellowship
Church as they bring these
experiences with them. They
have a heart for missions and
missionaries, knowing what it's
like to leave the field and come
home on furlough.
Some friends thought Todd
was crazy to give up an interna-
tional director's position and
the travel it afforded. But that
isn't the issue for him.
"We committed our lives to
the Lord and to South Africa,"
Todd said. "And now we are
committing ourselves to the
Lord and Bible Fellowship
Church."
"It's a whole different life - a
life of faith in a new direction,"
Susan said.
The Sunday they left South
Africa, their pastor prayed for
them. According to Todd, the
pastor said, "We feel like we are
sending you as missionaries to
America from our church."
It was the send off they need-
ed. The U-turn was complete.


Elephants in their natural environment are a wonder to behold.

Libra: In difficult situation, your



pleasant nature saves the day


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- A financial windfall comes
at just the right time. However,
don't be a spendthrift. After you
pay off your bills, put some
money away. You're going to
need it in the near future. A
close friend has a problem and
needs your help. Be supportive,
and do what you can. Gemini
plays an important
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- A project that you've been
working on hits a snag. Don't
get discouraged. Think rational-
ly, and you can solve the prob-
lem. A family gathering that
you really don't want to attend
actually ends up being a lot of
fun. All of your worries are for
naught. That special someone
has a surprise for you. Enjoy it!
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- You've got a relaxing week
in-front of you, Gemini. There
are no deadlines to meet, and no
one is piling responsibility on
top of you. Enjoy it while you
can, because things will get
hectic soon. A loved one asks
for your advice about a family
problem. Be honest, and say
what you really think.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- You are on edge this week,


because you have so
much to do and not
enough time to get it
all done. Don't get
nervous. Just priori-


H- Your pleasant
HOROSCOPES nature saves the day

Metro News early in the week,
Libra. Those around


service


tize your schedule,
and stick to it. You'll
be surprised at what a little
organization can do. Some
friends take you out to celebrate
an important event. This is your
time to relax and have fun.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
Be true to your ideals this week,
Leo, as you face a challenging
problem. Stand up for what you
believe in, and you will come
out ahead. A loved one reveals
an interesting family fact to
you. Don't let it throw you -
and keep it to yourself.
Capricorn and Pisces play key
roles later in the week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Your error puts an important
business project in jeopardy.
Remedy the situation as quickly
as possible, but think before
you act. The higher-ups are
watching you. That special
someone has a question for you.
Don't get nervous; he or she is
not putting you on the spot. Just
be honest.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)


you are on edge, and
you calm them down
and keep them


focused. A loved one gets into
trouble. Don't get involved -
you'll only end up getting hurt.
The person you've been seeing
stops calling. Don't get upset;
he or she wasn't the right one
for you anyway.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- Don't be too aggressive
when you meet an interesting
person early in the week. You
don't want to push this person
away, because he or she has a
lot of connections that could
help you with your career. A
close friend confides in you. Be
supportive, but be truthful. Leo
plays a key role.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - You're on the go this
week, Sagittarius. There's a lot
to get done, and you can do it
all if you stay focused. Don't let
your responsibilities lag just
because you want to have some
fun. There will be plenty of
time to celebrate once you fin-
ish everything. Loved ones are


more than willing to help you if
you need it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) -- Be honest with yourself,
Capricorn. Don't get involved
in something that you don't
agree with just to make others
happy. You have to think about
yourself. You run into an old
friend at the end of the week.
Take some time to reminisce.
You've got a lot to catch up on.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- You're on top of the world
early in the week. Everything is
going well at work and in your
personal life. Even family prob--
lems are working out. Enjoy it.
An interesting person asks you
out to dinner. Say yes, but don't
expect this to be the beginning
of a long relationship. Just have
a good time.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- This is your week to shine,
Pisces. You do well at work and
make a good impression on
your superiors. As for romance,
your relationship with that spe-
cial someone is going strong. A
loved one needs your help plan-
ning a family event. Do all that
you can to help. He or she will
appreciate your efforts.

Nurse recalls famous, Times Square kiss by sailor 60 years later after V-J Day


By PAT MILTON
Associated Press n"riter
NEW YORK - A kiss is just
a kiss - but not this kiss.
The photograph of the exu-
berant kiss by a sailor on the
lips of a surprised nurse in
Times Square remains, 60 years
later, an iconic image of the day
World War 11 ended.
"It was a very long kiss,"
Edith Cullen Shain, who says
she is the nurse in the photo,
recalled Thursday. "It was like a


dance step, the way he laid me
over in his arms."
Shain said she closed her
eyes and never looked at the
sailor.
"I just got lost in the
moment," said Shain, now an
87-year-old great-grandmother
from Santa Monica, Calif.
To Shain's delight, a life-size
color sculpture by J. Seward
Johnson based on the photo-
graph was unveiled Thursday in
bustling Times Square. It will


be displayed through Monday.
Shain recalled the pandemo-
nium on Aug. 14, 1945, the day
of victory for the Allied forces
over Japan, when people
grabbed anyone and hugged
and kissed each other.
"I let him kiss me because he
had been in war and he fought
for me," Shain said of the sailor.
"I only wish now I had had a
conversation with him or asked
his name."
Unbeknownst to Shain, the


smooch was snapped by Life
magazine photographer Alfred
Eisenstaedt. It was featured in
the magazine the following
week.
Shain, then 27, said she rec-
ognized herself when she saw
the photograph but didn't tell
anyone because she was "too
embarrassed."
Soon after the photo ran, she
moved to California, married
twice and had three children.
She gave up nursing and taught


kindergarten for 30 years.
In 1979, she told Eisenstaedt
in a letter that she was the nurse
in his photo. She said
Eisenstaedt, who died in 1995,
flew out to California to inter-
view her and confirmed that she
was indeed the nurse.
The sailor's identity remains
a mystery.
More than 20 men have come
forward through the years
claiming to be the kisser. One
went so far as to have digital


images of his face taken to cre-
ate a 3-D model, which was
then aged and transferred to the
face on a copy of the kiss pho-
tograph.
Shain thinks he will never be
identified.
"There were so many people
kissing," she said, "I think they
all believe they are right."

Herbicide-resistant weed becoming a pest in California


Glyphosate-
resistant horse
week has been
found in 10 states
By JULIANA BARBASSA
Associated Press
PARLIER, Calif.
Horseweed was once merely a
nuisance to farmers - hard to
pull out, quick to sprout back
after cutting and capable of
towering over tractors.
Now it's becoming a full-
blown nightmare worthy of an
agricultural horror flick.
Scientists in California have
found clusters of the weed that
are resistant to scores of herbi-
cides, leaving farmers to fight
an increasingly formidable and
costly foe.
The weed, also known as
mare's tail, has always been
around, but it wasn't until last
month that University of
California researchers con-
firmed that some strains had
become resistant to herbicides,
posing a threat to the nation's


most productive farmland.
For decades, growers, gar-
deners and anyone looking for
an easy way to beat back weeds
have relied on the chemical
glyphosate. While it's inexpen-
sive, it works on several types
of weeds, and is less toxic than
other pest-control ingredients.
Farmers planting crops such
as corn, soybeans or cotton that
have been genetically engi-
neered to survive the chemical
could spray it liberally over
their entire field, killing all the
weeds and leaving only their
crops standing.
However, glyphosate-resist-
ant horseweed was found in
Delaware in 2000, and has since
been discovered in 10 other
states.
The herbicide's popularity
may be partly to blame for
breeding the resistant weeds,
researchers said. By killing
nonresistant weeds, it allows
only the survivors - those few
naturally resistant plants - to
thrive.
"They've created a problem


Highlands Delta Chorale


is beginning
SEBRING - The Highlands
Delta Chorale is beginning
rehearsals for its 23rd year of
performing in Highlands
County.
The first will be from 7-9
p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, as the
chorale prepares for its holiday
concerts. Rehearsals will con-
- tinue during those hours on
Monday through the end of
April for the multiple perform-
ances the chorale gives.
A library of over 300 titles
includes old and new favorites.
David Rinald has been the
chorale's director of music
since it formed in 1983, except
for a year's sabbatical. For the
2002 season, Susan Wedig was


23rd season
the director.
Richard Wedig was the
group's piano accompanist for
several years. Ruth Ann
Esseltine took over that job in
2003.
For many years, the chorale
rehearsed at Faith Lutheran
Church. Now, it is rehearsing at
Sebring Church of the Brethren
at 700 S. Pine St.
Singers of all ages and voic-
es are welcome. Auditions are
not required.
To book concerts for church-
es, retirement parks and civic
groups, call Cheryl Cornetta at
699-2663 or Pat Riccobono at

by relying on one solution to
solve all problems," said weed
ecologist Anil Shrestha of the
University of California's
Kearney Agricultural Center.
Developing resistance to a
chemical isn't unusual among
plants and animals, scientists
said. What makes the horse-
weed adaptation such a nui-
sance is how fast it reproduces
and how big it grows, stretching
10 or 12 feet tall, sucking up
scarce water and nutrients.
Bob Prys, a manager for the
13,000-acre Borba Farms in the
San Joaquin Valley, said the


weed became a problem just
three or four years after his farm
started growing herbicide-
resistant cotton.
At first, workers sprayed the
fields, killing everything but the
cotton plants, and the farm
saved money by having to till
the fields less frequently. Now
Prys said the farm is relying on
weeding again and adding other
chemicals to its herbicide mix
- adding unexpected costs to
the higher price they pay for the
genetically modified seed.
Pete Christensen also
watched his costs soar as herbi-


cides became powerless to stop
the weeds from choking grapes
on his vineyard near Selma.
Two years ago, he tripled the
concentration of the herbicide
and doubled the applications,
but the weeds were growing
thicker than ever.
"It was dominant in the land-
scape," he said.
Biotechnology firm
Monsanto Co., which develops
crops resistant to the herbicides,
recommends mixing chemicals
to avoid the weeds also becom-
ing resistant, said David
Heering, a technical manager


L


for the company.
"At the end of the day, they'll
still have fewer passes through
the fields, and fewer weed-con-
trol problems," Heering said.
The UC scientists recom-
mend weeding, rotating crops,
cultivating the land with farm
equipment and the use of herbi-
cides that kill horseweed seeds
in the soil before they germi-
nate.
Those measures will increase
costs for farmers, but will pre-
vent a more serious and costly
problem later on, scientists said.

Playoff decides NEXT Tour title


Towne caps off big

weekend with win

on second extra hole
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK - Highlands Ridge
North went the extra mile for its first pro
event, and the players responded in kind.
Greg Towne and Curt Saathoof both
shot 69 Saturday to extend the NEXT Tour
event by two playoff holes, and Towne,
who tied for the win in Friday's Moonlight
Tour event with a 69, outlasted his fellow
tour veteran to take the inaugural
Highlands Ridge Open crown.
"I only missed a couple greens and I
never hit into trouble," Towne said.
"You've got to keep it in play out here."
Yet it was what Towne did with a shot
just to the right of the fairway on the sec-
ond playoff hole that put him over the top:
His approach on the par 4 No. 2 landed
within three feet of the hole, and after
Saathoof three-putted, Towne converted
on his second putt for par and the win.
"I had the putt he had the first time
around, and it's so fast, once you get past
the hole it's just gone," Towne said of
Saathoof's predicament. "Then you have
to putt into the grain uphill, and it's easy to
miss. I can see how he did that. And he
was trying to force the issue because I was
in there like that."
That Towne didn't make his three-foot
birdie putt was by design.
"I don't know if I'd have made it or not,
but I had to just tap and just lag it to make
sure I won," he said, pointing to the same
speed of the green that hampered his oppo-
nent.
Local players didn't fare as well in their
chance to play close, to home. Lake
Placid's Scott Todd shot a 75, while Brian
Bone was officially disqualified after fail-
ing to turn in a scorecard for his round of
76.
"I felt like I was pressing a little bit the
whole weekend, having it here on my
home course, and probably trying a little
bit too hard to shoot a low number," said

Sebring's Brian Bone blasts out of a bunker during Saturday's NEXT Tour event at
Highlands Ridge North.


Chancey, Towne share win in Moonlight Tour event


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Brian Bone's
return to Highland's Ridge
North Friday morning proved
inconclusive.
His time spent on his former
home course during the
Moonlight Tour's first trip to
Sebring was so-so, said Bone,
posting three birdies, three
bogeys and one double bogey
on No. 14 on the way to a 74,
good enough. to qualify for
Saturday's second-level event
of the NEXT Tour.


"I played decent," said Bone,
who has three Moonlight wins
this year. "I hit a few pretty
good shots but I really didn't do
anything special. I just kind of
played decent. I mean I didn't
make any major mistakes, I just
didn't play real well."
His 2 over day was good
enough to finish 13th, two spots
out of the money.
First place honors and a
check for $800 was split by Jim
Chancey and Greg Towne, who
both shot a 3-under 69, fol-
lowed by a $300 third-place fin-


ish by Georgia's Jamie Maguire
at 70.
Steve Todd, another
Highlands County resident
from Lake Placid, also qualified
for Saturday's match with a 72,
seventh best among the field of
30. Arcadia's Jason Laman shot
a 74 and River Greens pro
Jason Beatty shot a 75.
The Moonlight Tour is a
state-wide golfing circuit in
Florida that was created to give
amateurs and pros an inexpen-
sive way to gain experience
through competition. Although


it's an independent event, sepa-
rate from the NEXT Tour, the
Moonlight event was a key to
the two-level weekend which
allows only those who play well
enough to compete in the
NEXT event, which comes with
a bigger purse.
Players could either qualify
by shooting within two strokes
of the course rating (76.1) or
finish in the top third of the
field.

NCAA didn't

If the NCAA is going to
do something stupid, they
at least ought to go all the
way.
The recent announce-
ment that teams with "hos-
tile and abusive" mascots
- namely those with
Native American connec-

on some kind of NCAA

talk of the sports world for
over a week.
I'm sure the politically
correct numbskulls who
dreamed this idea up
thought they would be
applauded for their work.
Instead, they've got
throngs of sports fans on
their case like Bob Barker
on Happy Gilmore.
The fact that the person
who complained about
Florida State being the
Seminoles - which is sup-
ported by the Seminole
Tribe of Florida - claimed
he was representing the
Seminoles in Oklahoma
when he really wasn't just
makes them look even
worse. Not only did they
land with both feet in a big
mess, they didn't even
bother to check out the
story of one of the folks
who pushed them in.
But, if the NCAA really
wants to get rid of names
that are "hostile," they're
going to have to create a
much larger list. After all,
almost every sports team in
the nation has a mascot
that has aggressive or hos-

Tigers, panthers, bears,
wildcats and lions all have
hostile overtones. Don't
think so? Walk up on a

sarily have to play the next day,
but is eligible," Frank McGee,
founder of the tour said.
"Incidentally, the player also
qualifies for an upcoming two-
day event in the Orlando area.
But most players today came
out with the specific intent on
qualifying for tomorrow."
McGee, a former aerospace
engineer who had played com-
petitive golf when younger,
founded the tour because he
wanted to find a way to help
striving pros without charging
inflated entry fees. One player
involved in the event even
made the cut for the U.S. Open.
"I never played great but I
played well for many years and
I decided I wanted to do some-
thing low-cost for guys to get
good enough," McGee said.
"And there are a lot of aspects
to getting good enough. You
need competition and you need
experience. We're probably the
lowest-cost tour in golf right
now."
Friday was the first time dur-
ing the Moonlight Tour's 13
year existence that Sebring has
been chosen as a tournament
site.
Bone said Friday that
although he might have had a
slight advantage due to his
awareness of the course, things
simply didn't gel all day.
"I used to play here a lot
when I lived here because it's
my home course," he said.
"Anytime you've played on a
course before you have some
kind of an advantage but once
you get out there you still have
to hit your shots."


Until my middle teens, my
fishing tackle was very unso-
phisticated. I used a cut sapling
or (when I could afford it) a
cane pole and never bought
fishing line because mom
always had some strong black
thread on hand for mending
pants for her five boys.
. Mowing grass for a couple
of neighbors and carrying a
small paper route allowed me
to splurge for a 25-cent single
action reel and a two-bit steel
rod when I was about 14.
The revolutionary Zebco
reel came along much later and
most anglers today, especially
those under 50 years old, will
tell you that their first reel was
a Zebco.
My all-time favorite reel is
the Zebco 33. I have owned
many more elaborate reels,
such as Ambassadeur and

Bone, who struggled after mak-
ing the turn at even par.
"You've got to be really patient
out here, and it was real tough
for me to be patient."
Bone said he looked forward
to the chance to play another
tour event at Highlands Ridge,
and it appears he'll get that
chance. Course pro Debby
McNall said a September
NEXT Tour stop is in the works


for next year, while the Liberty
Tour, a,step up from the NEXT,
may come in the spring.
"These guys really enjoy our
course," McNall said of the
pros. "It's been good having
them here."
Towne, for one, is eager to
come back, crediting Highlands
Ridge and sponsors Bill Jarrett
Ford and Glades Electric for
everything from a steak dinner
Friday night to the shirt on his
back.
"They treated us like we're
on the PGA Tour," he said.

Thornton takes over Gators' top RB spot


Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Florida running back
Skyler Thornton has made significant strides
since a poor spring.
He's lost weight, gotten faster and grown
accustomed to new coach Urban Meyer's spread
offense. He's improved so much that Meyer
called Thornton the team's No. I tailback Friday
at Florida's annual media day.
"Skyler Thornton is- a pleasant surprise,"
Meyer said. "He's No. 1 right now." o0(
Thornton had an outside shot to claim the start-
ing job after struggling some in the spring. Junior
DeShawn Wynn was considered the front-runner,
and freshman Markus Manson had been getting
much of the praise from Meyer.
But things have changed for Thornton, a 5-
foot-11 junior from LaGrange, Ga.
"No one has talked about me much," he said.
"People are just overlooking me. I'm kind of fed
up with it to tell you the truth. I just go out and
think about that and go a little harder than I usu-
ally would."

which seems both hostile and .
abusive, especially if you're
the one getting his tail gnawed
on. Hurricanes? Nobody
around here has to be reminded
how abused we all felt after
last summer's tropical trifecta.
And what about high school
teams? Just in Highlands

be considered hostile. The Blue

OK, since nobody is really sure

considered a mascot worthy of
the scrap heap, too.
Here are a few other mas-
cots that the NCAA should
look into:
- Austin Peay State
Governors: What about all of
the people who don't like their
governors? Or all of those
anarchists watching the games
on satellite from their com-
pounds in the mountains of
North Dakota?
- California Golden Bears:
Personally, I don't see anything
wrong with a team named after
golfing legend Jack Nicklaus,
but a lot of Arnold Palmer fans
might disagree.
- Connecticut Huskies:
Abusive to those folks who are
just a tad bit overweight.
- Cornell Big Red:
Upsetting to all the people who
prefer Juicy Fruit as their
chewing gum of choice.
- Furman Paladins:
Offensive to me, personally,
because I have no idea what
the heck a Paladin is, and don't

Thornton also might be the beneficiary of
Wynn's likely suspension for the Sept. 3 season
opener against Wyoming. Although Meyer has
not confirmed the suspension, he has indicated
that Wynn might have a problem.
The Gators are looking for one of the three
backs to replace Ciatrick Fasomi, who gained
1,267 yards rushing and scored 10 touchdowns as
the starter last season. Fason left school early to
enter the NFL draft and was a fourth-round pick
by the Minnesota Vikings.
Without Fason, Meyer challenged the trio to
step up and play better.
Wynn ran 58 times for 217 yards last season,
scored five touchdowns and missed several
games with a groin injury. Thornton picked up
the slack, carrying 55 times for 230 yards. He had
163 yards rushing over the final four games.
"I'm hoping what happened in the spring
doesn't happen now," Meyer said.
"If two weeks from now, I don't say Skyler's

just disappeared."

Ragin' Cajuns: I've met a few

them were in a good mood.
- Missouri-Kansas City
Kangaroos: This one is just a
stupid name for a team not
from Australia. Come to think
of it, it wouldn't be a very
good name for a team from
Australia, either.
- North Texas Mean
Green: If we're going to get rid
of "hostile" names, can there
be a team with the word
"mean" in its name? I think
not. Besides, how can a color
be mean?
- Richmond Spiders: Can
you say arachnophobia? Think
of the thousands who suffer
from it and the fear Richmond
games must cause.
- San Diego State Aztecs: I
guess it's OK to use native
American tribal names for a
,team, as long as that tribe was-
n't actually in what is now

- San Francisco Dons:
What about all the people not
named Don? When do we get
our own teams?
- St. John's Red Storm:
They tried to be politically cor-
rect by changing from the
Redmen, but the new name is
still offensive to Floridians on
two fronts. First, the word
storm makes us think of hurri-
canes and all the bad memories
from last year. Second, the
word red brings to mind the
red tide that has plagued our
beaches this summer. How
about the St. John's Worts,
instead?
- Syracuse Orange: Last
time I checked, I don't recall
there being very many orange
trees in New York. As a
Floridian, I find this name to


be offensive.
- Texas-San Antonio
Roadrunners: The Wile E.
Coyote family must be contact-
ing their lawyers as we speak.
- Wake Forest Demon
Deacons: First of all, we can't
have the word demon in a
name. Second of all, it's an
oxymoron, isn't it'? Can you be
a deacon and a demon at the
same time?
At least the NCAA hasn't
gotten around to selling the
rights to team names, one of
the few things associated with
big-time sports that hasn't been
given a corporate tag.
How does the Florida State

Roush said no, then told

"The thing I'll give you

Roush told him.

The Zebco 33, once called a "beer can with a hole in both ends," is
possibly the most popular fishing reel ever produced.


can. They refused.
In 1948, the Zero Hour
Bomb Co., which made time
bombs for the oil well drilling
industry, decided they would
manufacture Hull's invention
since the company's future was
uncertain at the time and they
needed a new product. A reel
called the Standard went into
production in 1949 and they
acquired an experienced tackle
representative, George Goetz,
to sell it.
Goetz put it before the pub-
lic with a trick-casting exhibi-
tion. It was a demonstration of
pin-point accuracy in casting
while wearing boxing gloves.
In those early days, Hull's reel
was described as "a beer can
with a hole in both ends," but
it was a big success and made
headlines wherever it went.
About 1954, the Standard
was replaced with by the
Model 11, a much-improved
reel. Shortly afterwards,
America's first closed-face
spinning reel, the Model 33,
made its appearance. The
Zebco name was adopted in
1956 and the Zero Hour Bomb
Co., still in the business of
manufacturing time bombs,
became a division of the tackle
firm.
The 33 is still the.bread and
butter of the Zebco family of


reels today and is credited with
popularizing the sport of land-
ing larger fish with light tackle.
The Zebco company has
made several models of fishing
reels over the years. Imitating
competitors and Japanese
imports flooded the market in
1960 hoping a cost-conscious
public would believe it could
buy quality cheaply. Zebco
answered with the 202. It was
manufactured with their excep-
tionally high standards and
sold for $5.95. The quality of
the reel surpassed many of the
higher-priced reels of other
manufacturers.
I believe Zebco has always
given fishermen the best reel
for the money. I have caught
all kinds of fish, including
largemouth and smallmouth
bass (some over 10 pounds)
with this great reel. I also
know that there are fellows
who wouldn't be caught dead
with a Zebco 33, but it is still
my favorite among all the reels
that hang in my garage.
The inventor of the "beer
can with a hole in both ends"
died in 1977, but his legacy
lives on in the quality of the
Zebco reel.

"You could speculate on
that," he said. "For me, I'm
happy wherever I go."
He called 2006 a question
mark but said he has a great
opportunity to win for either car
owner. Beyond that Busch
would not comment on 2007.
"I've got 2005 to drive for
this championship," he said.
"We're in good position. We're
fifth in the points. It's hard to

He called the team's chem-

"They know that it wasn't

it's this business."
But Busch said he's focused
on winning another title or two
before moving to Penske. He
has called the Penske ride an
"opportunity of a lifetime," and
a challenge to prove he can win
with a different team.

this take on the obvious gimme is squandered,

. None of the childlike wonder of exploring a fan-
tastical, magical, candy-laden land of morality tales
is present here. It's a bare-bones game of janitorial

collecting non-descript hunks of candy and other-

look like those creepy Oompa Loompas.
Though geared for kids, it certainly wasn't devel-

exactly everything you want in a Hulk game; specifically
destructible everything in a huge, wide-open world a la "Grand
Theft Auto," where anything you see is pick-up-and-throWable,
smashable, climbable and leapable in those patented 1,000-foot
leaps. To coin a phrase, it's incredibly ultimate. More info at

Bears quarterback Grossman breaks ankle


The Associated Press
Rex Grossman didn't even make it to the reg-
ular season this year.
Coming off a right knee injury that ended his
season in the third week last year, the Chicago
quarterback broke his left ankle Friday night in
the Bears' 17-13 exhibition loss in St. Louis.
"I knew right away and I was kind of in denial
to start with. I tried to walk it off but I heard a
pop," said Grossman, expected to be sidelined
three to four months.
The former Florida star was hurt early in the
second quarter on a 4-yard completion to Darnell
Sanders. Grossman was flushed from the pocket
by Jeremy Loyd and Trev Faulk and spun and
dropped by Faulk.
"I got caught in one those situations where
someone kind of twisted me and sat on my leg


and you know, what are you going to do?"
Grossman said. "I'm disappointed obviously, but
there's nothing you can do. It doesn't help me to
dwell on it."
Grossman was 6-for-ll for 52 yards before
leaving the game.
The Bears used four quarterbacks last year and
have used at least three in six of seven seasons.
They could be stuck in a similar predicament this
year with Chad Hutchinson, Kurt Kittner and
rookie Kyle Orton.
"If we're contingent on just one player, then
obviously we didn't build this team to win," gen-
eral manager Jerry Angelo said. "It's a tough
blow, I'm not going to sit here and say it isn't. ...
We'll get through it. I feel good about our locker
room, I feel good about our coaches and we're
going to move forward."

Neu'ws-Sun
AI 'ION P4-iRK
If nothing else can be said about Christine Carter and
Elaine Sedlock, both of Avon Park, two things are cer-
tain: both can catch fish (though Carter catches more),
and both seem to have a propensity for losing valuables
in the water.
Within two weeks, and exactly the same number of
times fishing off a dock on Lake Tulane, Carter lost a
nice fishing rod and Sedlock lost a diamond ring.
The pole was lost to Carter's fifth catch of the night in
one hour. What she hooked no one will ever know; but it
took her bait hook, line, sinker, rod and reel, putting an
end to her streak of good fortune.
Two weeks later Carter placed a diamond ring on the
pinky finger of her good friend, Sedlock. "What are you
doing?" Sedlock asked. "You can't give me that ring."
"I want you to have it," Carter said. "and I can do what
I want with it; thank you very much."
Carter explained that she had had it for eight years and
that it was very sentimental but that it represented a time
in her life that is over. "I need to let it go along with my
past and. I want you to have it," she said.
Not even two hours later the ring was lost as Sedlock
was sitting on the dock holding her dog by a lead rope.
As the dog ran past her, the lead snatched the ring off of
her finger. She realized what had happened just in time
to helplessly watch as it rolled off the edge of the dock
into the deep water below.
Sedlock immediately told Carter what had happened,
and knowing how futile it would be to dive for it after
failed attempts to retrieve the fishing pole by several
people two weeks earlier, Carter said, "Don't worry
about it. It wasn't that valuable. Just leave it be."
Sedlock, however, wouldn't let it be. "What we need
is a scuba diver," she declared. In spite of Carter's
protests, Sedlock made it a priority to find one the next
morning. Letting go of a fishing pole was one thing but
letting go of a gold diamond ring, no matter how small
the diamond, was entirely another.
First Sedlock called a friend of hers, Tim Smith of
SpringLake, whom she knew to be a diver. 'Td love to
do it," he replied. "But I left all of my gear in the Keys."
After hanging up with Smith she picked up the phone
book. "I didn't know what to do," she said, "so I called
the only number listed in the yellow pages with anything
to do with scuba diving. Lake Placid Marine. The owner,
Lee Underwood, agreed to come to the rescue."
Underwood, an experienced scuba diver, asked a few
questions about the ring, the depth of the water, the con-
ditions of the bottom of the lake, and the visibility. And
though he didn't know whether or not he'd ever be able


to find it he drove from Lake Placid to Ao.
Park right after a day of work, alorig w.rh -
his friend, Charlie Dressel of Avon Park. "
With a storm brewing on the h
Underwood donned his diving equipment-, i dldo

had fallen. Seconds later he emerged, pr claiming -A4 , 2'i'
can't see anything down there. There's no way I'll event |-- . , -
able to find that ring." Sedlock's crestfallen hopes sanideep-
er than the ring itself; but for only a fleeting moment as the 4
underhanded Underwood produced the ring whichbhe had nabbed-
on his first attempt. -
After having succeeded in his quest for the lost ring w. ith' 'Sel$edl.-ik
asked Underwood if he would mind looking for the lost pqe eas-weil; d
just as the first bolt of lightning shot out of the steadily darknidrn tgte.t
of the rod broke the surface of the water with Underwad'f!Aqwig�G
behind.
Sedlock, Carter, and her son, Buddy Elfers, age 6 (to whom th jpi
belonged), were ecstatic. Underwood refused any payment fo hishibeld-
instead opted for good conversation, a few laughs, and the satisfacti i t
comes from doing a good deed.

Other viewpoints

State Attorney General Charlie Crist is right on the
money in taking a stand for the public against rate hikes
sought by FPL.
Crist is asking the Florida Public Service Commission
to block a proposed hike by FPL that would add $3 to $4
to the monthly electric bill for the typical residential cus-
tomer.
It also would increase business customers' rates from
6 percent to 9 percent, with the entire gain for FPL com-
ing to at least $430 million annually.
The company's crying that it needs the money, in part'
to pay for new power plants required by the state's rapid
growth - but growth is feeding its coffers.
In fact, FPL Group has annual revenues of more than
$10 billion, and is one of the nation's largest power com-
panies, with expanding operations in 26 states.
Getting the rate increase would do nothing but add'
insult to Florida consumers' injury, considering that last
month the PSC let FPL slap consumers with a surcharge
of $442 million to help it pay for last year's hurricane
repairs.
We agree with Crist, the AARP, which represents 2.7
million Florida retirees, and the Florida Retail'
Federation, who say FPL's rate increase should be reject-
ed.
No, Crist's pro-consumer stand just as he's working to
become the Republican candidate for Florida governor
next year hasn't been lost on us.
But if that's what it takes right now for consumer
needs to be heard, we're not complaining.

An editorial excerpt from Florida Today.

The chances that Florida lawmakers would pass a
stem-cell bill that could escape Gov. Jeb Bush's veto pen
are less than slim to none. They're virtually nonexistent.
But state Rep. Franklin Sands (D-Weston) probably
isn't so naive as to think that the bill he's drafting for
consideration next year has a realistic shot at becoming
law.
The more likely explanation is that by proposing state
legislation to help finance research using embryonic
stem cells, Mr. Sands and lawmakers who support such
efforts will move this important debate from an academ-
ic to a political arena.
That's sensible long-term strategy for several reasons.
First, the national discussion on the feasibility and
ethics of publicly funded stem-cell research is ongoing
and growing.
Nor are the participants in the debate easily divided
between Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and
liberals, pro-lifers and pro-choice advocates. This issue
blurs those lines.
That fact was illustrated most recently by U.S.,Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist's announcement that he will
support federal legislation supporting stem-cell research.
There is probably a stronger chance that members of
Congress could overcome President Bush's opposition to
stem-cell research than there is that the 2006 Florida
Legislature could, one, pass a bill at all and, two, approve
one that satisfies the governor.
But Jeb Bush won't be Florida's chief executive forev-
er.
The ethical debate will persist, of course. Eventually,
however, Florida may figure out how to proceed with
stem-cell research that honors the sanctity of life, encour-
ages cutting-edge research, and promotes the growth of
biomedical businesses in the Sunshine State.

An editorial excerpt from the Tallahassee Democrat.

Congressional leaders continue to resist President
Bush's call this year for a substantial reduction in farm
subsidies. They would do well to consider an independ-
ent watchdog group's new study on subsidies collected
by California growers.
The study, conducted by Environmental Working
Group, shows that some of the state's largest farms
receive millions of subsidy dollars each year by "double
dipping." More than one-fifth of the California farms
surveyed collected water subsidies worth $122 million
and crop subsidies worth another $122 million in 2002,
the last year in which both figures are available. ...
An Associated Press review of Agriculture Department
records for 2000 found that almost two-thirds of the $27
billion in farm subsidies offered that year went to just 10
percent of the nation's farmers. Of the 1.6 million farm
aid recipients nationwide in 2000, the average recipient
got about $16,000. Some 57,500 aid recipients got more
than $100,000, and around 150 recipients got more than
$1 million. At least 20 Fortune 500 companies were
among the top recipients, according to the AP review.
This results, in part, because of rules that base subsidy
payments on farm acreage, rather than financial need.
The president's proposal wouldn't do away with that for-
mula, but it would help curb much of the "double dip-
ping"...

As an example of one of my

It was not the first time I had
done so, and the way I dealt
with it was to send her back to

than I did. This did not keep her
from griping about it, and as she

My father replied with a

Kreative Kids is

great program

Editor:
Highlands Art League has
just concluded the last week of
the Kreative Kids Camp and I
am pleased to announce that it
was a terrific success.
As the camp coordinator 1
would like to thank the board
of directors, staff, teachers,
donors and volunteers who
made it possible for the ses-
sions to take place. My sincere
gratitude goes out to Wal-Mart,
Publix, Griffin's Carpet Mart,
Sysco Foods and Porter Paints
for their generous donations to
our summer camp.
We also had some amazing
volunteers who gave 50 hours
or more of their time to assist
the teachers and assure the best
possible experience for. the
children who attended this sea-
son. Rebecca, Jackie, Joanne,
Carol and Lynn - we are so
appreciative of the time and
energy you spent to make this a
summer to remember for so
many children.
Lastly, I need to thank the
many parents who allowed
their children the opportunity
to expand their horizons and
explore their artistic abilities.
These are parents who under-
stand that art appreciation
begins at home. I am so grate-
ful for their wisdom and fore-
sight.
Again, I would like to thank
all of you for the gifts you have
bestowed upon Highlands Art
League and the Kreative Kids
Summer Camp. Without the
generosity of the above men-
tioned businesses and individu-
als we would not have been
able to enrich the lives of more
than 130 children in Highlands
County. Thank you!
Amy Smith

STARS thank

theater stars
Editor:
The. Special STARS
Recreation Club in Highlands
County was invited to.
Highlands Little Theatre in
Sebring Aug. 7 for a special
dress rehearsal of "Cabaret."
This was an opportunity for
many people with disabilities
and their families to enjoy
watching local theater for the
first time.
I commend Melanie Boulay,
the director of the show, for
offering such a fantastic oppor-
tunity for the STARS and for
giving a tour behind the scenes.
The members were thoroughly


impressed when they actually
got to stand on stage and see
what goes on behind the cur-
tain. They felt like true "'stars."
The entire cast was very
courteous and hospitable
before, during and after the
show. The Special STARS
Recreation Club members had
such a great time shaking hands
after the show with the cast,
getting their autographs and
snapping photographs of them.
It truly was a heartwarming
experience.
I personally would like to
thank Highlands Little Theatre
and wish them the best of luck
on stage during this production.
Some members of the STARS
also have submitted their per-
sonal letters of appreciation
which follow.

Abandonment can cause big problems for children


Abandonment - a
word that to many
brings back a memory GRANDM
of a time where, for WIS
some reason or anoth-
er, they felt as if they Diane T,
had been abandoned.
It may have been
due to the loss of a loved one,
even if only temporarily. A
child's first day in a day care
setting, preschool or kinder-
garten is usually one filled with
these feelings.
They pass quickly through
those feelings though with the
realization that they will be
picked up daily by those they
love and depend on.
How many of us have had
these feelings when a love rela-
tionship did not work out, a
member of our family died,
divorce broke up a family, or
even when the family pet died
or ran off?
Even children who have been
adopted at birth often question
the reason that they were given
up for adoption, even if they
were brought up in a very lov-
ing home. They often look for
that answer as young adults.
The children who are living
in foster care and those who we
as grandparents and kinship
caregivers have rescued have
these feelings, but at a much
larger scale. Even though they
are now in safe, secure and lov-
ing homes, that question
"why?" is in their minds from
the youngest of ages.
When abuse or neglect are
involved the question is "why
did my parents have me if they
did not want me or could not
take care of me?" or "what is
wrong with me that they could
not love me like other parents
love their children?"
Combine that with the abuse
and neglect that many of them
have gone through and there is


hi


a real challenge in
boosting their self
OTHER S esteem.
)OM Many of the chil-
dren that we raise
ibodeau have gone through sit-
uations in their pasts
that most adults can-
not perceive in their minds.
What is the "norm" for a happy
childhood has not been the
"norm" for these children.
Then the fact that many of
these children were born addict-
ed to drugs or have other physi-'
cal or mental problems due to
abuse and your "norm" is even
more effected.
When out shopping or dining
with these children they may
act out at times. Some simple
thing they see or hear may bring
back the vivid memories of the
life they lived in abuse or neg-
lect.
Different forms of discipline
are needed for these children.
Spanking a child who lived
in a home where beatings were
a daily occurrence will do noth-
ing to help them with their poor
self esteem. Yelling and
screaming at them to stop will
have no impact on a child who
has become accustomed to that
in their life at a young age.
My young sons act out at
times and then other times they
are just being children. When
they act out in public I will do
my best to remove them, take
them home and talk to them.
Serious outbursts may also
entail a good time out.
If I am in a situation where I
cannot leave with them imme-
diately I do my best to calm
them.
I treasure the moments when
they are just being happy little
boys in love with life because I
know I am doing right by them,
giving them a childhood full of
good memories.


Recently as we were leaving
a family restaurant as a happy
family one of my little boys was
called "bad" by another patron.
I asked her what she had said
and she told me that she had
told him "you are being a bad
boy and your grandma should
spank you."
I sent him on into my van as
she told me he was a hellionn."
I realized that she was not say-
ing these things in anger but
that she really did not under-
stand what these boys had been
through.
To me, educating someone is
much wiser than getting angry.
We talked. I, explained that I
had adopted my grandsons and
I was their Mommy.
I also told her about what
they had been through with
their biological mother. That the
older of the two boys has been
having some very vivid recall
of abusive events and had
recently undergone surgery.
I also told her how the
younger of the two was abused
before his birth and is still
working at overcoming that
abuse. To see him race his
brother brings joy to me since at
one time we were not sure if he
would walk.
I do believe that when she
drove away she had a much dif-
ferent perspective.
Education is a big part of my
life at this point. Not only help-
ing group members or those
who find themselves parenting
their grandchildren or kin chil-
dren with help and information
on services available, but edu-
cating the public as to the crisis
that is going on with the grow-
ing numbers of these children.
We are not raising these chil-
dren who were born to our chil-
dren because we lacked parent-
ing skills. We are raising them
because of the bad choices our


children made.
Drugs seem to have the
largest number involved. Peer
pressure and curiosity can cause
that child we knew to become a
drug addict who there is no
talking to.
Just falling in love with the
wrong person can be the reason
when mental illness is involved.
Death, divorce and incarcera-
tion are other reasons. In all of
these, though, the outcome is
the same, that feeling of being
abandoned.
If you are a grandparent or
kinship caregiver in need of
information, advice or just a
shoulder, please feel free to call
me at 382-3511.
Summer was a hectic time
for group members but we plan
to go bigger and better in the
fall.
