VOLUME 86/NUMBER 33

ARCADIA
E motions ran high Tuesday morning when -
friends and family members gathered at the
Arcadia National Guard to say goodbye to
the 651 Military Police Company, including
members of the "Battery B" 3rd Battalion 116th Field
Artillery from Avon Park.
A certain sense of pride and patriotism emerged
from the sadness of the occasion as well-wishers
waved signs and yelled "good luck" to soldiers as
they exited the armory to board busses bound for Fort
Dix, N.J.


The unit consisted of members from the Avon Park,
Arcadia and Wauchula National Guard units. Soldiers
will first take part in military police training at Fort
Dix, and then they are expected to serve 18 months in
Iraq.
It is uncertain if the units will be allowed to come
home between their training in Fort Dix and their
deployment to Iraq.
"It hurts," Laura Cole said tearfully as she stood
embracing hfidaughter, Harley. Uncertain of their
future, Cole cried as she watched her husband, Pfc.
Mark Cole of Zolfo Springs, proudly walk'toward his
bus ready to serve his country.


Fred Winchell came all the way from Phoenix to
bid farewell to his brother, Spc. John K. McBride of
Bowling Green. Winchell was smiling as he tried to
make light of the situation for the sake of his brother's
wife, Zita, and children, Elizabeth and John Jr.
"I've already been there (Iraq) and I know what
he's facing," Fred Winchell said. "I just want him
home safe for his kids. I am very proud of him."
"It's hard, but I know they are doing what's best for
the country," Ann Gore, of Arcadia said, while her
husband, Charles, a former military man and currently -
Arcadia's American Legion commander, saluted sol-
diers as they passed.


Volunteers needed to save a neighborhood


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - There is a ded-
icated group of Washington
Heights residents and home
owners that is determined to
make a difference.
Under the leadership of
retired teacher Robert Saffold,
the group is bringing an earlier
organization back to life, and
last week 18 of them met to


endorse the articles of incorpo-
ration for the New Washington
Heights Concerned Citizens'
Committee.
The immediate goal, Saffold
said, is to create a nonprofit
entity, with a board of directors
reflecting the different sections
of Washington Heights.
The long-term goal is join
forces with the city and county
to raise awareness, provide out-


reach, coordinate actions, and
raise funds for improvements to
the area.
Apathy has long been an
obstacle, but Saffold is counting
on increased engagement as
neighbors see improvement.
"People are interested, up to
the point of talking about it,"
he said, "but they don't come to
meetings yet." Then he added,
"at least now they're talking."


Kids learn how to avoid being abducted


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Monica Sauls conducts a safety seminar Tuesday evening spon-
sored by the Knights of Columbus in Sebring. Sauls and Sebring Police Officer Larry Carmody advised
children what to do in case of an abduction. Stranger danger, secret code words and tips such as 'grip,
dip and spin,' were suggested to keep kids safe during a possible kidnapping.


Saffold also is pleased with
the response from city and
county officials.
Already there is better com-
munication, he said. The first
step has been taken to improve
garbage pick-up.
Committee members are
determined to move forward.
For example, at one point in
the meeting there was a discus-
sion of what to name the organ-


ization. When a suggestion was
made to table the issue for
future discussion there was
vociferous dissent.
Barbara Walker, an active
member, pointed out in frustra-
tion that often groups never got
any further than disagreements
up front. She, and most of the
assembled members, were in no
mood to delay. Unanimous

County OK with garbage

hauler merger, for now


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Florida
Recycling wants to sell out its
Highlands County operation
to Republic Services of
Florida.
That would leave the coun-
ty with one garbage hauler
covering either just its own
area or the entire county.
Once the county has only one
hauler, it can't go back to hav-
ing two, County Attorney
Ross Macbeth said on
Tuesday.
The advantage of two
haulers on commercial con-
tracts comes when a client has
a complaint. He or she can
always take their business to
another hauler, Macbeth said.
Without that, he doesn't
believe the county has a
strong enough garbage ordi-
nance to address problems
with one hauler.
County commissioners
agreed Tuesday to go along


with the sale, provided county
staff works out some of the
difficulties in the ordinance
and brings the whole matter
back to them for final
approval.
Dan Malloy of Waste
Services of Florida Inc.,
which owns Florida
Recycling, said he would
work with the county to make
a smooth transition, if
approved.
The county set up a two-
zone and two-hauler system
after hearings on mandatory
garbage pickup 15 years ago.
The final hearing lasted until
1 a.m. the next day, County
Administrator Carl Cool said.
Residential garbage collec-
tion is split geographically
between the county's two
haulers. They compete over
the entire county for commer-
cial contracts.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said the county has a

Clermont man
dies in wreck
LAKE PLACID - A 25-
year-old man died Saturday
night when his car over-
turned on State Road 70 and
he was thrown out.
At 7:54 p.m., Joseph E.
Winner Jr. of Clermont was
westbound on S.R. 70, about
16 miles east of U.S. 27,
when his 1998 Chevrolet
pickup went off the road and
collided with a steel guard
rail.
The truck rebounded and
went back onto the road, but
according to Florida
Highway Patrol reports,
Winner overcorrected and he
began to spin counter-clock-
wise. The truck then over-
turned toward its right side
and Winner, who was not
buckled in, was thrown out
onto the road.
FHF said he received fatal.
injuries and died at the
scene.
According to FHP reports,
alcohol was involved in the
one-car wreck.
The truck itself landed on
the south shoulder of the
road, sitting upright and fac-
ing north.

Boards agree

to move on

impact fees
SEBRING - County,
municipal and school offi-
cials agreed Tuesday to
move forward on impact
fees.
Within the next month,
Highlands County staff will
send out requests for qualifi-
- nations for consultants inter-
ested in doing a feasibility
study on impact fees. Such
fees are assessed on devel-
opment to pay for categories
of service such as roads,
schools, water and sewers.
Each fee may only pay for a
specific category.of service.
By Sept. 15, representa-
tives from-all three munici-
pal councils, the school
board and the county com-
mission will meet to discuss
what to do next.
One main concern at
Tuesday's meeting was
school capital improvements,
which the state no longer
funds at the local level. Most
of the 2.0 building millage
the school board assesses
pays for maintenance and
renovation of existing struc-
tures, leaving not enough
funding to build new
schools.

Be accurate
reporting

income
SEBRING - Veterans
who must report their
income to the Veterans
Administration to receive
benefits are being warned to
be accurate.
The Veterans Affairs
Office is now using a com-
puter matching program to
check reported household
income SSA records.

Delivering state grant


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
State Representative Denise Grimsley (left) took time off Tuesday from representing District 77 to
officially deliver $200,000 from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of
Recreation and Parks, to the Highlands County commission. Grimsley and Peter Anderson, park
manager for Highlands Hammock State Park, gave the check as one of the grants the county has
used to purchase the Blackman Property in northeast Sebring for a new five-field softball complex.



Appraiser explains sources of


higher property tax revenues


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County's growth in the last year
has been less new construction
and more land speculation,
according to Property Appraiser
C. Raymond McIntyre.
Usually that growth has been
4-5 percent. Last year, the tax
base increased by 20 percent.
It's a statewide trend based
on several factors. McIntyre
said, not the least of which is
the migration of retirees into
Florida and the migration of
Floridians inland, away from
the coasts. Mclntyre also points
to financial reasons for growth
happening everywhere.
When land- prices go up on
the market, his assessments go
up. He gives homeowners an
adjustment, which subtpcts the
closing costs, title insuurance,
Realtor fees, and other fees.
After that, he takes off
exemptions, such as the Florida
homestead exemption, which
allows permanent residents a
$25,000 break off the assessed
value before taxes are figured.
In 1994, the "Save Our
Homes" Florida constitutional
amendment allowed anyone
who qualifies for a homestead
exemption to cap their home's
taxable value increases to 3 per-
cent or the consumer price
index, whichever is less.


If a Floridian sells a home
and moves into another, the
exemption gets reassessed
based on the new price for a
year, McIntyre said.
What has been happening
most with Highlands County
property has been "flipping" -
selling from one buyer to anoth-
er, increasing the price each
time.
The county had 10,700 trans-
fers of deeds in 2001, McIntyre
said. In 2004, it was 25,876. In
the first half of this year, it has
already reached 17,0.00, with
predictions to hit 34,000.
However, building permits
have not gone up that much, he
said.
The result is that Highlands
County's taxable value went up
from $2.9 billion in 2001 to
$3.0 billion in 2005, without
il.ai muoch more construction.
Several factors have made
this happen, McIntyre said.

Boomers
With baby boomers reaching
their 50s and 60s, and their
maximum earning potential,
they have looked to Florida to
retire.

Coasts
Crowded conditions in
coastal communities have sent
some people inland. People
love the "hometown" atmos-


phere of Highlands County and
other rural areas, McIntyre said.

Capital Gains,
The current presidential
administration has lowered cap-
ital gains taxes - taxes on the
profits from selling off assets,
such as homes, so they work
really well for real estate,
McIntyre said.

Interest
Years of low interest rates
have really stimulated the inter-
est in real estate. The lower the
rate, the less the mortgage pay-
ment.

Stocks
While stock markets are still
solvent, many people have lost
-confidence in corporations,
McIntyre said. Real estate, by
contrast, holds its value.

Financing
A lot of people use interest-
only mortgages, paying only
the interest, not principal, for
the first years of the loan. The
danger, McIntyre said, is mar-
ket value must keep going up or
the home owner will never
build equity.
A buyer who pays $15,000
an acre for land worth $4,000
per acre locally, is paying too
much, McIntyre said, even if
that may, be far less than the
coastal price.


Landscaping codes around the county:
* Highlands County - Landscaping plans must conserve water, use
xeriscaping. Commercial yards must have transitional shrub.
* Avon Park - No landscaping code, and no plans to draft one
* Lake Placid - Requires some landscaping around commercial
buildings
* Sebring - Somewhat "loose" at the present but likely to become
more like the county's, according to City Manager Bob Hoffman.



Local governments


taking a new look


at landscaping


Proponents say
plants add to the
aesthetic of small-
town environments
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
A move is afoot among cen-
tral Florida communities to
make sure the aesthetic - the
"hometown" feel that drew
people in from the coasts -
remains in place as they devel-
op.
Clermont, a housing boom-
town just 20 miles from
Orlando, has required develop-
ers to consider more environ-
mentally conscious landscaping
to preserve the character of the
community and water
resources. Mike Waldron of
Hidden Acres Nursery' in
Sebring, has had landscapers
order trees with specific trunk
diameters and specific heights
to meet these codes.
When Waldron and other
members of the Florida
Nursery, Growers, and
Landscape Association met in
Orlando this summer, the
University of Florida Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Science gave a seminar on
"Florida Friendly
Landscaping."
Florida's warm climate has
more than 50 inches of rain
concentrated between June and
October, high pest populations,
and sandy soil. That makes
potential to damage the aquifer
- more than 85 percent of
Florida's drinkin..\'.ier -e
.. ith fertilizer, and' pe icide,-'
according i. the Isfuilte' s
Internet site.
Mike Eisenhart, owner of
E'Harts. Nursery &
Landscaping in Lake Placid,
and spokesman for Keep
Highlands County Beautiful
Inc., said the county's land
development regulations have a
good set-up on what's required
for landscaping.
"We tried to tie in protection
for standing on-site trees," he
said.
Right now, Highlands
County requires developers to
have a landscaping plan,


designed by a landscape archi-
tect, and to stick to the plan,
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said. In the last six
months, his office has really
begun to enforce it.
"Some engineering firms are
not liking it," Gavarrete said.
Duane Neiderman, with the
planning department, said the
county code requires water con-
servation and xeriscaping -
using plants the require little or
no artificial irrigation.
Commercial businesses have to
have a protective transitional
yard between them, 10-40 feet
wide, with a certain number of
trees and shrubs.
Other counties have more
restrictive codes. Highlands
County's will probably become
stricter as more development
comes into the county,
Neiderman said.
"Ours is very loose," said
Sebring City Administrator Bob
Hoffman.
Hoffman said the city wants
to make its ordinance more like
the county's requirements for
planting and maintaining plants
and trees. Louisiana State
University has a model land-
scaping ordinance that Tracy
Mullins, development consult-
ant with Michael Joachim &
Associates, will review for the
city.
Avon Park City Manager
C.B. Shirey said the city has not
made any recent changes to its
zoning code, and has no plans
to do so. The code requires
buffers - vegetative or other-
wise between differently
zoned areas and encourages
using existing trees and canopy _
'.trees. It's not required, but it's -
encouraged, Shirey said.
As far as governing what
goes into the ground inside a
property line, "no so much,"
Shirey said.
Lake Placid does its own
code enforcement but does not
handle its own permits. The
county land development regu-
lations and permit process gov-
erns that. Town Clerk Arlene
Tuck said there are some com-
mercial restrictions:
Landscaped islands in the park-
ing areas, buffers between busi-
ness and residential areas, and
trees of a certain width.


County insurance increase held at 2 percent


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - With all the
losses from hurricanes and
reports of increasing insurance
rates, Highlands County gov-
ernment was bracing for the
worst.
County Administrator Carl
Cool and financial officers had
budgeted for a -20-30 percent
increase. They were shocked,


when they got the official
result.
For the coming year,
Highlands County's insurance
coverage has only gone up 2
percent from last year.
Among a group of cities and
counties that pool resources for
insurance, that's the lowest
increase of all, Cool said. Avon
Park will see a 20 percent
increase. Lake Placid will see a


CORRECTIONS


In the Sunday, Aug. 14 edi-
tion of the News-Sun, Linda
Harrison was incorrectly identi-
fied. She is in fact the CEO of
Highlands Regional Medical


Center. Also, Shawn Korzep,
tossing miniature sandbags to
her at the hurricane anniversary
party, was misidentified.

22 percent increase, and
Sebring will see a 17 percent
increase, Cool said.
He attributed it to the dili-
gence of county employees
using care to help everyone be
safe.
Last week, Human
Resources Manager ,Fred
Carino, who also acts as risk
manager, said Highlands
County has seen workers' com-
pensation losses drop over the
last five fiscal years.
Each year since 2000-01, the


county has paid out less than
the amount it paid into the sys-
tem.
That is, in part, thanks to for-
mer risk manager Wayne
Fiyalko. However, Carino also
said accidents have gone down
thanks to everyone paying
attention to what they are doing
and various risk managers in
the county departments doing
their jobs well.
However, the county may
need to consider refilling the
risk management job, Carino


said. The low numbers can eas-
ily go back up.

FEMA Funds
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency has also
approved the county to receive
$4.3 million in compensation
for lost resources from last
year's hurricanes, Cool said.
It's better than county staff
expected to see, he said.
Out of that, the county has
already received $1.5 million,
Cool said.

checks out road damage Monday after a vehicle rolled over on U.S. 27 hear Skipper Road in Sebring. No
serious injuries occurred during the incident.


Driver loses control of trailer


SEBRING - Collin L.
Jones, 31, of Cape Coral,
escaped a wreck Monday with-
out injury, despite having his
loaded trailer force his truck to
roll over.
At 12:58 p.m. Monday, Jones
was driving a 2001 Chevrolet
truck southbound on U.S. 27
with a trailer carrying a forklift.
According to Florida Highway
Patrol reports, once he got in


the area of U.S. 27 and Skipper
Road, the trailer began to sway
side to side from being over-
loaded.
Jones was unable to control
both the trailer and the truck.
The truck rotated counter-
clockwise and overturned on its
right side.
"I knew I shouldn't hit the
breaks, but I thought I was
going slow enough," Jones


said.
Although he was buckled in
and had no injuries, FHP cited
Jones for having no brakes on
the trailer and inadequately
securing his load.

Branham's personnel file shows checkered past


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - City offi-
cials in Avon Park have released
the personnel file of Michael
"Tiny" Branham. He is being
held in connection with the July
shooting death of his wife, local
attorney Janette Branham.
The file contains 1,400 pages
of commendations, reprimands,
intraoffice memos and copies of
legal actions accrued during
Branham's 18 1/2 years with
the department.
Branham retired in 2000 on
disability from the Avon Park
Police Department as a ser-
geant, citing degenerative
arthritis in his knees as the rea-
son.
At the time, then-Avon Park
police chief Tony Velong noted
that Branham was unfit for
duty, pointing to the sergeant's
excessive absence due to ill-
ness.
Branham cited his knee prob-
lem; saying that also was exac-
erbating the pain that stemmed
from an existing back injury.
Even after he retired from the
police force, Branham contin-
ued to have disputes with the
department. A memo dated
2000 showed his attorney
sought $2,205 from the depart-


ment for 133 hours of accrued
vacation pay.
The nearly foot-high stack of
papers shows a checkered past,
with an assortment of different
documents from accolades to a
number of challenges Branhami
filed in response to departmen-
tal criticism.
Branham received numerous
letters of thanks including one
from then-Highlands County
Sheriff Howard Godwin for his
help in an inmate capture, a let-
ter from former Avon
Elementary School principal
Beth Hurley noting his assis-
tance dealing with an irate par-
ent and even from a woman he
arrested in connection with a
domestic disturbance case.
"I realize it was a matter of
life and death," the woman
wrote. "... if it were not for you
and your department I might
not be alive today."
After working for a time at
the Avon Park Correctional
Institute, Branham initially
signed on with the police
department in 1981. There was
virtually nothing noted in his
first three years.
Records show it was in 1984
when Branham pulled up short
in his first evaluation. He
scored an overall 2.37 on a


scale of 5.0. Under the terms of
the assessment, a level two
cited areas that needed
improvement while level three
was deemed acceptable.
Later, in
January of
1987, Branham
was demoted
from proba-
tionary ser- .
geant to patrol-
man on the rec-
ommendation BRANHAM
of then-police
chief Joe Sliva because of his
conduct during two high speed
car chases.
The late-Rod Souther, a lieu-
tenant with the department,
cited Branham for "poor judge-
ment" for leaving -the city
unprotected while engaging in
the pursuit.
Souther also charged,
Branham was being "insubordi-
nate" while engaging in the
action.
That same year, Brunham
was cited at one time for post-
ing a report that was to have
been held.
"The suspect in the case has
stolen the company truck that
he was driving and has left
town. We can surmise this was
probably the direct result of the

Highlands County Realtors



collecting Suitcases for Kids


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Realtors with
the Highlands Association of
Realtors are collecting
Suitcases for Kids, part of a
national effort to make a differ-
ence in the lives of children in
foster care.
Suitcases for Kids collect
new and gently used suitcases,
duffel bags and backpacks.
Tragically. many children in
foster care have to move week-
ly - some even daily - putting
everything they own into a plas-
tic bag when it's time to go.
With every bag that Realtors
collect, one less child will have
to suffer that indignity,
Association Executive Arianna
Jordan Burke said. Duffel bags
are the most popular item need-
ed, as they are easy to store and
easy for children to carry.


"No matter what, a garbage
bag makes a miserable travel
companion," Burke said.
"We're asking Realtors to col-
lect as many small suitcases and
bags as possible, and hoping
that others in the community
will get involved in the effort.
Children in foster care are
already dealing with so much
turmoil in their lives. If we can
make it just a little easier, just
by giving them a special suit-
case to house and carry their
personal possessions, then
that's what we should do."
The Florida Association of
Realtors and National Associa-
tion of Realtors are supporting
sponsors for Suitcases for Kids.
NAR encourages state and local
Realtor organizations across the
nation to create collection pro-
grams that will benefit foster


care agencies in their local
communities.
The Highlands Association
*of Realtors encourages Realtors
and community members to
lend their support to Suitcases
for Kids. For more information,
including how to donate new
and gently used bags, call 385-
6014.
Suitcases for Kids was
founded by 10-year-old Aubyn
Burnside in 1995 in an effort to
provide Catawba County, N.C.,
foster care children with suit-
cases. Since then, the program
has grown to become an inter-
national nonprofit organization
with chapters in every state and
47 countries, and collecting _
more than 25,000 suitcases for,,
foster children. To find out
more, visit www.Suitcasesfor

SEBRING - Highlands
County commissioners will
have to wait on reviewing a

tor, on a permanent consultant

County Administrator Carl
Cool said Tuesday that there are
some more details left to define
in the contract. It will be left for

In the meantime, county
commissioners approved

According to Brantley, the

County attorney J. Ross
Macbeth said even though the
former Convention and Visitors
Bureau funded the request last
year, the county has specific
rules to follow on awarding
tourism tax funds to organiza-
tions.
Right now, he said, there is a
glitch with the local Florida
Sportsman Association's incor-
poration papers. He was,
allowed time to review the con-
cerns and bring the matter back
to the commission at a later
date.
Brantley said when events
that are funded one year and not
the next, it confuses and frus-
trates the public. He hopes to
resolve this matter with Cool
and Macbeth for all groups that
may apply for funding for an
extended event, because it will
come up again.
"This is five nights of heads
in beds," he said. "It's hard to
generate that kind of revenue
otherwise."

County staff to look for long-term growth


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Though
Supervisor of Elections Joe
Campbell may be the only one
who needs more room now,
county staff will have to look at
everyone's needs.
Right now, the county gov-
ernment has "one-stop shop-
ping" and good parking around
the courthouse, County
Commissioner Bob Bullard
said Tuesday. Most other coun-
ties have offices spread all over
the county seat, and not enough
parking at the courthouse. He'd
like to avoid that, if he can.
"This is like a college cam-
pus," he said. "I want to let peo-
ple know this is a government


campus."
Campbell started the debate
at the beginning of July when
he asked commissioners per-
mission and help in looking for
a bigger office.
Already, Campbell's office
fills four locations: The
Government Center, a training
center on South Commerce
Avenue, a warehouse, and extra
storage in Avon Park. He would
like to have his office, ballot
inspection and tabulation areas,
warehouse, training center, and
early voting all in one place.
That would take about 16,000-
20,000 square feet, he said.
Commissioners asked County
Administrator Carl Cool to sur-


vey every constitutional officer
to find out what they need and
do a space needs study.
On Tuesday, Cool said he'd
spoken wilh every public offi-
cial, and since only Campbell
needs the room, he'd hold off
on hiring a consultant. Bullard
said he didn't want a consult-
ant, just an in-house study.
Cool said the county did a
study seven years ago, when the
Government Center was built.
Meanwhile, the county has a
long-range parking plan for the
downtown area and is near to
asking for bids on paving a new
parking lot in the downtown
area. That should alleviate
some concerns, Cool said.


Vets warned to be accurate when reporting income


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Veterans who
must report their income to the
Veterans Administration to
receive benefits are being
warned to be accurate.
The Veterans Affairs Office
is now using a computer match-
ing program to check reported
household income against
Social Security Administration
records for veterans whose eli-
gibility for benefits is based on


income levels.
Veterans Affairs intends to
access this information when
any veteran, spouse or depend-
ents make an application for
medical care. If the veteran's
attributable income is below the
threshold of someone who
would be unable to pay the
copayments, the veteran can
receive cost-free medical care.
The matching program is
intended to make sure people's


reported income matches with
other governmental records.
Before anyone's benefits or
coverage changes, he or she
will be given a chance to con-
lest the findings.
Denise Williams, assistant
veterans services officer for
Highlands County, said the
local office has seen cases
where people failed to report
interest earned, and the
Veterans Administration
tracked it down.

One innovative idea has
already excited the regular
members.
Doug Ginter, formally in
advertising and a citizen with
interests in Washington
Heights, suggested a secondary
name of Lemon Aid be used for
fund-raising, or special events
- as in, a fund-raising barbe-
cue brought to you by Lemon
Aid - as opposed to the longer,
more formal New Washington
Heights Concerned Citizens'
Committee.
Ginter explained Lemon Aid
was informal, catchy and up-
beat; and that it had a double
meaning which could help
focus attention onto Lemon
Street. It could help people
remember the committee's
focus, he said.
The group- agreed the con-
cept had possibilities.


MERGER
Continued from 1A
lot of remedies against haulers
if citizens complain about serv-
ice, including fairly stiff penal-
ties. The ordinance said the
county commission could not
"unreasonably" withhold
approval of a sale, as long as
there are identical rates for
service.
Macbeth said the haulers'
renewed contracts with the
county take effect Oct. 1 and
have different rates. It was not
unreasonable, he said, to insist
on having two haulers. If coun-
ty commissioners still want two
haulers, they may have to
divide commercial contracts, he
said.
Once a hauler loses its fran-


chise, it loses- commercial con-
tracts, Macbeth said. The
remaining hauler would be able
to pick up leftover commercial
contracts and could gain eco-
nomic clout to underbid any
incoming hauler.
Terry Collier of Republic
Services of Florida Inc., which
owns Reliable Sanitation, said
the two haulers' commercial
rates are the same. Only resi-
dential rates differ, but profit
margins have eroded in residen-
tial services.
His company quotes as close
to the maximum amount the
county allows, but -has no
means to raise rates above the
county-set level. He wants to
get old customers up to that
level to help pay for rising
costs. I
If he's not making a profit, he
can't invest in equipment or


workforce, and service may
suffer. Right now, with minor
efficiencies, he can maintain a
viable company for the next
four years. After that, he would
encourage the county to rebid
for haulers, because by then it
will be too expensive for him
under the current contract.
As for complaints, he has
seen a really good relationship
with the county and the cus-
tomers, especially in residential
where they can't hire another
hauler.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
said citizens have gotten great
service, which hasn't been the
case in some cities he's seen.
"We do not want to be the
county with a solid waste hauler
that's losing money," he said.
Merging is one way to get
economy of scale, he said.

Start writing
your history
Writing your family history
can seem daunting if you're
one of those people who can't
find time to write letters, let
alone pen a family saga.
As the Native American
proverb suggests, "The longest
journey begins with a single
step." Our family history
begins with our favorite stories
and grows from there.
Do you remember, as a
child, your favorite relative?
What made that person special
to you? Is there a particular
instance you can remember
that person stand out?
I remember my mother's
aunt and uncle grinding horse-
radish and making homemade
ice cream. I wasn't more than
4 years old, and yet these are
two of the most poignant
memories I have of them.
Sharing the story of these
two people keeps them alive
for generations to come.
Stories makes them real to
descendants who have no other
way of knowing who these
people were.
What's your favorite memo-
ry? Try tape recording the
story as though you are shar-
ing it with your best friend. Be
sure to include the particulars
- such as who was with you
and what you were doing at
the time when the memory
was made.
If you aren't a typist, see if
one of your grandchildren can
be conned into typing the story
for you from the tape record-
ing. They may enjoy playing
secretary - and you'll have the
first page of your memoirs
begun!

Steve's Cargo Express hauls it all


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Steve's Cargo Express can real-
ly haul.
Owner Steve Slaybaugh started two years ago
with a couple of trailers and a 100-square-foot
office. Now his newly expanded facility has
1,200 square feet and 50-60 trailers on hand.
Slaybaugh, who moved to Sebring from Indiana
five years ago, had been in the trucking and trans-
portation business for 35 years.
"It all relates. I can show you how to put the
load in properly and make sure you have a trailer
that will support the load," Slaybaugh said.
There are open utility trailers that landscaping
and lawncare people like, or they can be used to
haul a golf cart or one motorcycle. These start at
5 feet by 8 feet with a ramp and gate, for $925.
According to Slaybaugh, the lawncare people
prefer the 6 feet, 4 inch by 12 feet or 16 feet long.
There are enclosed cargo trailers that are great for
transporting tools, motorcycles or even cars.
Steve's Cargo Express also have dump trailers.
Contractors and roofers like these because of the
back tilt for easy loading at clean-up sites and
transporting it to the landfill, Slaybaugh said. A
6-foot by 12-foot trailer is $4,100, and a 7-foot by
14-foot trailer runs $8,000.
Buying from four different factories, Steve's
Cargo Express has a large quantity and wide
range of trailers: the 4-foot by 6-foot enclosed
trailer is $1,779.



United Country


"The 6-foot by 10-foot, which is our most pop-
ular, has a rear ramp where they can drive onto
and is $2,795. We always have many styles and
sizes of trailers in stock to choose from. An 8-
foot by 20-foot enclosed trailer designed to haul
a car starts at $5,995," Slaybaugh said.
Steve's Cargo Express can special order and
customize anything a person wants. "For
instance, we just got a trailer for a racecar driver
that's 8-foot by 20-foot. It comes with a checker-
board floor, an insulated ceiling and white vinyl
zed walls and ceiling and is wired for air condi-
tioning for $7,800."
The new retail space carries spare tires, hitch-
es, and an assortment of locks: tongue locks for
$47.95, even trigger locks and pin locks. There's
brake and bearings for trailer axles, cargo
restraints, floor tie downs, and motorcycle wheel
chocks (a stainless steel piece that stabilizes the
cycle on the trailer) for $49.95
"The thing that sets us apart is that we educate
people. We know how to properly match them up
with what's right for their vehicle and what's
right for the job. We are not high pressure. And
we keep ourselves educated," Slaybaugh said.
Slaybaugh and his other two employees, Bob
Durfee and Margaret Blackowske can handle all
questions and trailer needs. Call Steve's Cargo
Express at 385-0200. It is at 700 U.S. 27 North
(next to Pier One.) Hours are from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday.

Woman leaves
newborn in
Wal-Mart
Associated Press
MACON, Ga. - A full-
term baby was found Sunday
afternoon in a Wal-Mart bath-
room toilet, covered in trash
and toilet paper.
Three Wal-Mart employees
found the baby. A customer
started CPR until a fire
department worker arrived
and revived the baby, accord-
ing to a police report.
Witnesses were able to
identify the mother, who was
later found at her home.
Investigators did not release
her name. She will likely face
charges, said Bibb County
sheriff's Capt. David Davis.
Like many states, Georgia
has a "Safe Place for
Newborns" law lets a mother
leave a newborn at any med-
ical facility within a week of
birth without fear of prosecu-
tion.

Honor student
drowns while
fleeing police
Associated Press
CAPE CORAL - A high
school' honor student drowned
when she jumped into a canal
while running away from
police following a hit-and-run
accident, authorities said.
Police spokesman Angelo
Bitsis said an off-duty Lee
County sheriff's deputy fol-
lowed Rachel Hooppaw's
Toyota SUV after it was
involved in a hit-and-run
crash. When Cape Coral offi-
cers approached her stopped
SUV, she ran, leaving behind
a companion she was driving


to the hospital after he had
apparently shot himself in the
leg at his home, Bitsis said.
Hooppaw ran between
some houses before jumping
into a 12-foot-deep canal,
Bitsis said. Officers repeated-
ly ordered Hooppaw out of
the canal, but she swam away.
She went under water and did
not resurface. Divers later
recovered her body.

Man solicits
cops to kill wife
- again
Associated Press
STUART - An inmate has
been charged with trying to
hire a hit man to kill his wife
from behind bars - for the
second time.
Christopher Sheridan Hoar,
56, of Jensen Beach, has been
in jail since October. He was
initially charged with aggra-
vated assault with a firearm
after allegedly pointing a gun
at his wife and threatening to
kill her, according to the
Martin County Sheriff's
Office.
While in jail, he asked an
undercover detective to kill
his wife for a $10,000 fee and
a vehicle, deputies said. Hoar
was charged in December
with solicitation to commit
murder.
Last month, Hoar again
asked an undercover detective
posing as a hit man to kill his
wife in exchange for a fee and
a pickup truck, deputies said.
He was arrested Friday and
again charged with solicita-
tion to commit murder.
Detectives said Hoar was
fooled by a photograph they
staged with 51-year-old
Marcia Hoar lying in a pool
of fake blood.


Court ruling barring silent school prayer

'seems indefensible,' Roberts wrote in 1985


By DAVID ESPO
AP Special Correspondent
WASHINGTON - Supreme
Court nominee John Roberts
showed sympathy for the idea
of permitting prayer in public
schools in 1985, according to a
memo released on Monday,
writing that a ruling to the con-
trary "seems indefensible"
under the Constitution.
As a young lawyer working
in the Reagan administration,
Roberts wrote he would have
no objection if the Justice
Department wanted to express
support for a constitutional
amendment permitting prayer.
Referring to a Supreme Court
ruling issued earlier that year
that struck down an Alabama
school prayer law, he said, "The
conclusion ... that the
Constitution prohibits such a
moment of silent reflection -
or even silent 'prayer' - seems
indefensible."
The Alabama law, ruled
unconstitutional by a divided
court, mandated a one-minute
period of silence for meditation
or prayer.
Roberts' two-paragraph
memo, written to White House
counsel Fred Fielding, was
among nearly 5,400 pages of
records released Monday by the
Ronald Reagan Presidential
Library. They comprise a por-
tion of the material relating to
Roberts' tenure as a member of
the office of White House coun-
sel.
An additional 478 pages that
cover the same subject areas
remain under seal, according to
Allen Weinstein, archivist of
the United States. White House
spokesman Steve Schmidt said
the library had withheld materi-
al based on requirements in the
Freedom of Information Act to
protect privacy and national
security.
The White House "did not
hold any back" after reviewing
those cleared for release by the
library, Schmidt said.
The library contains an addi-
tional 40,000 pages relating to
Roberts, expected to be made


public before Senate confirma-
tion hearings convene Sept. 6.
The records released Monday
indicate that as a young lawyer,
Roberts provided legal analysis
on a variety of topics.
When then-Chief Justice
Warren Burger suggested cre-
ation of a new appeals-level
court to cut down on the
Supreme Court's workload,
Roberts wrote that was a "terri-
ble idea."
"The fault lies with the jus-
tices themselves, who unneces-
sarily take too many cases and
issue opinions so confusing that
they often do not even resolve
the question presented," he
said.
When Sen. Robert C. Byrd,
D-W.Va., then the Senate
majority leader, urged Reagan
in 1985 not to exercise his con-
stitutional power to make recess
appointments, Roberts dis-
agreed in a draft reply.
"The courts have rejected
your suggestion that the recess


appointment power was intend-
ed to be used only in rare and
exceptional cases," he wrote.
Serving in a conservative
administration, Roberts strong-
ly opposed a district court rul-
ing that had upheld a claim of
"comparable worth." The suit
was filed by women arguing
they were victims of discrimi-
nation because they were paid
less than men working in other
jobs that the state had decided
were worth the same.
"It is difficult to exaggerate
the perniciousness of the 'com-
parable worth' theory," Roberts
wrote. "It mandates nothing
less than central planning of the
economy by judges."
Comparable worth has faded
as an issue in the intervening
two decades, but not so school
prayer. It remains a perennial
issue in which judges - and
justices - are occasionally
asked to determine where to
draw the line between church
and state.


The day the court struck
down the Alabama state law
that mandated a period of
silence for "meditation or vol-
untary prayer," Roberts pre-
pared an instant legal analysis.
Despite the ruling, he wrote
Fielding, "careful analysis
shows at least a majority of the
justices would vote to uphold a
simple moment of silence
statute."
Roberts went on to speculate
that "the outcome of this case
shifted in the writing." He said
he thought Justice William
Rehnquist had started out writ-
ing a majority opinion to
uphold the law, but his argu-
ment went too far for Justices
Sandra Day O'Connor and
Lewis Powell.
They wound up dissenting,
Roberts noted.
"Thus, as I see it, Rehnquist
took a tenuous five-person
majority and ... ended up losing
the majority."

Teacher invited to NASA to learn how to teach space


News-Stun
Sponsored by Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University and NASA, the
TeachSpace Workshops for Teachers gives
to educators the tools and techniques to
make math, science and technology more
appealing by using human space flight and
exploration materials in the classroom.
Nadine Tedstone, of Sebring who is a
Florida State Certified Technology teacher
with Polk County School System, was rec-
ommended by her peers to attend the four-
day seminar at Cape Kennedy and Embry-
Riddle Aeronautic University in Daytona
Beach July 20-23 to motivate, inspire, edu-
cate and equip teachers for the 21st century.
TeachSpace is projected to reach 10,000
teachers and more than 1 million teenagers
ranging in age from 14-18 by the year 2008.
Using this established academic and admin-
istrative network the goal is to motivate stu-
dents to pursue careers in science, math,
engineering and technology.
Each workshop enrolls up to 20 teachers,
participants receive text books, software,


room and board, extensive hands on learn-
ing and one graduate level credit from
Embry-Riddle. The sessions were lecture,
computer based learning and a great deal of
hands on workshops. The first day of the
workshop provided all teachers with a VIP
tour of the NASA Space Center where
Tedstone found a lot of excitement at the
Cape due to the pending space shuttle
launch.
All teachers wrote a lesson plan directly
related to the workshop and presented that
workshop to their peers, Tedstone and her
partner selected an Internet site with direc-
tions to make paper airplanes
phoenix.gov/A VIATION/kids/speeder:htmnl.
This worked well as each of the participants
selected a design to make and flew that
plane off of the third floor balcony. To
make this project more interesting the
group offered a small prize for the "pilot,"
who's airplane stayed in the air for the
longest duration.
The teachers tested space food (freeze
dried), assembled and launched rockets,


made a meteorite, took in a scavenger hunt
using a compass to calculate the locations
to retrieve a message to progressing to the
next unknown location.
The teachers worked hard in school
classes that were from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The TeachSpace Workshops are offered
through a grant that is made available
through Florida Space Grant Consortium at
the Daytona Beach site as well as Prescott,
Ariz.
Dr. Randall Liefer, the coach for the lec-
tures, has extensive experience. He was the
department head of the Space Department
at the Colorado Springs Air Force Training
Academy prior to his retirement and now
co-owner of the organization Teaching
Science and Technology Inc.
For additional information regarding this
program, contact Dr. Michael Hickey who
is the director of the TeachSpace program
and assistant dean of Embry-Riddle
College Arts and Sciences department at
www.erau.edlu/teaclispace.

Avon Park looks to county



code enforcement process


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - For the
past month or so, Avon Park's
city staff has been looking into
the possibility of hiring a spe-
cial magistrate to speed their
code enforcement efforts.
The time lag between busi-
nesses and residents being cited
for code violations and the time
the problems are remedied has
been a thorn in the side of city
officials for years.
It was this past June that
Avon Park City Manager C.B.
Shirey was asked to put out a
request for proposal to find
somebody to act as a special
magistrate and hear the long list
of code enforcement cases.
However, at the last regular
council meeting, Councilman
Doug Eason brought to the
council's attention the way
Highlands County is handling
code enforcement.
He suggested the city look
into that method as well.
Under that process, county
code enforcement officers take
the violations before the com-
mission and have the properties
in question declared a nuisance.
They then can get a lien against
the property for the cost of hav-
ing the place cleaned up.
However, according to
Highlands County Zoning
Supervisor Gary Lower, the
county's enforcement effort
seems to move with the same
lack of speed that has plagued
the city of Avon Park.,
Lower said county officials
initially try to give businesses
and residents a grace period to
clean things up.
"We're supposed to give
them a reasonable amount of
time. You have to use some
common sense," he said.
That doesn't mean officers
don't drive by to look at the
progress - or lack of it.
If property owners don't
respond within a certain period


Polatty to rework

proposal to state
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - To deal with
41 requested land use changes,
the Department of Community
Affairs has asked Highlands
County officials to define urban
service areas.
The state has rejected the 41
changes on the basis that serv-
ices are not available and the
need is not yet there.
Creating urban service areas
would define areas to receive
urban utilities or services now
or in the near future. The coun-
ty would also have to define
funding measures - taxes,
assessments, or impact fees -
to provide this infrastructure.
After looking over a draft
plan last week, county commis-
sioners said it's too early to
start talking about that. Some
believed the state was trying to
control county development too
much. Commissioners have
asked Development Services
Director Jim Polatty to keep
negotiating with the state on the
41 requested land use changes.
Each requested change has its
own merits, Commissioner Bob
Bullard said. Some develop-
ments are already in water and
sewer service areas, and may
have an easier .time getting
approved.
As for urban service areas,
the consensus was that land
outside the service areas would
get devalued from a lack of
services or a perceived lack of
services. In contrast, proposed
development inside the bound-
ary could get approved very
easily.
It could create a boundary of
"have" and "have-nots,"
Commission Chairman Andrew
Jackson said.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said urban service areas could
cut out about 90 percent of the
land owned by 10 percent of the
people in the county, almost all
of it agricultural land. If it's


of time, the matter then goes
before the commission. Once a
lien is placed against the prop-
erty, Lower can have a purchase
order drawn and send out a
crew to have the job done.
But Lower said finding a
crew to go on private property
and do the clean up can be dif-
ficult depending on what kind
of work needs to take place.
"That's a problem when you
have stuff on private property,
especially when the owner is
not in agreement," he said. "A
lot of them don't like to do
that."
Highlands County Attorney
Ross MacBeth also is working
on another method - a code
enforcement citation that would
work in much the same way
residents can be fined for bark-
ing dog nuisances or watering
restriction violations.
"After a first warning a code
enforcement officer would be
able to go back out and fine
them on a second violation," he
said.
Under the previous enforce-
ment method, when county
code enforcement violations
were turned over to the state
attorney's office, Lower said,
many times violators simply
were given more time to clean
up the situation.
Lower said the lure of getting
clean up done at low cost or no
cost is the incentive, rather than
charging fines and administra-
tive costs that can run into siz-
able bills for property owners.
That is all familiar territory
to Avon Park city officials.
They have been working with
some property owners for years
to get the buildings back into
good repair but without suc-
cess.
Avon Park Code
Enforcement Officer Donald
Simmons has been very suc-
cessful in prosecuting the city's
code enforcement cases under
the city's current process.


slated not to be developed, a
landowner would have a hard
time getting it rezoned.
"If you can't apply for a zon-
ing change," Maxcy said, "it
could create a problem with
property rights."
Commissioner Edgar Stokes
said people who own agricul-
tural land both inside and out-
side the boundary felt state offi-
cials wanted landowners "under
their thumb" when it comes to
future development.
"We were warned it was a
very bad idea," Stokes said.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart said urban service areas
are very complicated and
require the planning department
to be up to speed on it. While
other commissioners wanted to
drop it, she
planned to
look at it in
more detail..
She would
rather under-
stand it better
before decid-
POLATTY ing.
"In the
future, we may not have a
choice," she said.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
personally believes urban serv-
ice areas are not as great or as
bad as some people think. They
have to be established in a fair
way if they are going to be an
effective tool for development,
he said.
"It's a work in progress,"
Bullard said. "We're not there
yet."
When the Florida Legislature
passed the Growth
Management Act, it spelled out
the specific requirements for
creating urban service areas,
Bullard said. Right now, the
county only has tentative
boundaries. It could take anoth-
er two years to set up fair
boundaries.
The Department of
Community Services also
wants the county to reduce the
number of septic tanks per acre.
Bullard said the county may
compromise on that.


Simmons said the problem
has been with the courts, which
schedule his hearings behind
traffic cases, sometimes only
hearing a half dozen at a time.
While those cases are being set-
tled, there are times when twice
as many are being reported and
being put into the system for his
attention.
City council members had
decided to try the special mag-
istrate system as used in Cape
Coral. The idea is to speed up
the code enforcement process.
By using such a 'magistrate
the council would not have to
wait to get onto the court dock-
et. More cases could be heard
with greater frequency.
Under the statute, the cost of
a special magistrate cannot be
passed along directly to the
defendant in the case. But city
officials said the fee for the
hearing could be set high
enough to almost cover the fee.
The deadline for applying for
the special magistrate's job is
Aug. 30.

HEALTH & NUTRITION



Vitamins that reduce risk of prostate cancer


Dear Pharmacist:
Does vitamin E help with
prostate cancer? What other
vitamins are helpful?
E.D., Sacramento, Calif.
Dear E.D.:
Yes, vitamin E may cut a
man's risk for prostate cancer.
There have been several impor-
tant studies over the last two
decades to support the use of
vitamin E in various cancers
and overall general health.
Recently, a study of over
30,000 men concluded that vita-
min E cut the risk of prostate
cancer by about 50 percent. A
study published in last March's
Journal of the National Cancer
Institute determined that E
could reduce the oxidativee


stress" or, simply put, the toxic
load to the prostate, thereby
reducing risk of cancer. Of
course, if you intend to take
vitamin E, especially high doses
(800 to 1,000 IU), then you
should take it with other antiox-
idants such as vitamin C, beta
carotene, vitamin D and coen-
zyme Q10.
Two minerals are essential,
selenium and..,zinc. It just so
happens that the prostate gland
contains hefty amounts of these
nutrients. Supplementing with
trace minerals such as zinc and
selenium supports good
prostate health. Pumpkin seeds
pop into my head. They're very
small, packed with minerals and
great to nosh on. Oysters,


known for their nat-
ural aphrodisiac
properties, are
loaded with miner-
als. As a rule, it's
best to take antioxi-
dants in groups
because they work
synergistically.
That means better
together than alone.
It's like listening to
a concert. Certain
combinations of
"instruments" har-

monize and make
for great listening.
Two other antioxidants
deserve mention. The first is
lycopene, the nutrient found in
tomatoes, pink grapefruit and


watermelons, and
known for its ability
to impart that red
color. The second is
vitamin A, some-
times found in the
form of beta-
carotene. Carrots
have a lot of vita-
min A.
The prostate
gland is best sup-
ported with
bioflavonoids. One
p o w e r f u l


bioflavonoid is
quercetin; it's a good idea to eat
foods such as apples, onions,
green tea and leafy vegetables.
Quercetin is thought to neutral-
ize the male sex hormones,


which drive prostate cancer
growth, but the form you take it
in matters.
No discussion on the prostate
would be complete without
mention of saw palmetto. There
is controversy around this herb,
but many studies have shown
that standardized extracts from
the little palm tree are terrific
for prostate health.
If you have cancer, don't take
any of these nutrients without
your doctor's blessings. Stick to
your doctor's protocol unless he
advises you to take supple-
ments. If you take antioxidants,
remember, they work best when
you combine them, rather than


taking high doses of an isolated
nutrient. Always do your own
research and get several opin-
ions when it comes to your
health.

Did you know?
If you have hives or itch, and
can't find hydrocortisone, dab
on some Listerine mouthwash
with a cotton ball. It can tem-
porarily relieve the maddening
itch.

ferent combinations of the various types.
However, there is usually one personality type
that characterizes us most accurately.
The concept of presenting personalities in
groups or categories goes back to ancient times.
There are 35 different major known
schools of thought shown in a Table of LIFE
Equivalents for the Four Personality
Types on the Internet at Charle
www.2h.com/personality-types. ""


However, that Internet site doesn't
contain the following personality analysis based
on blood types:
Type 0: These people are daring, strong, fear-
less, persistent and born leaders.
Type B: These individuals tend to be very flex-
ible, like harmony, are creative, and avoid con-
flict.
Type A: These are passionate, community
minded, amiable, and respectable characters.
Type AB: Those with this combination are sen-
sitive, persuasive, passionate, spiritual and full of
life.
This personality analysis is similar to, yet dif-
- ferent from astrology (fire, air, water, earth) or
the method used by most management training
workshops (driver, expressive, amiable, analyti-
cal). No one personality type outshines the other
or is preferable to the other. All personalities
compliment each other in different ways.
So does our diet have anything to do with our
blood type?
According to "The Answer Is In Your
Bloodtype" by Dr. Steven M. Weissberg, it is a
big factor. He says that each blood type has dif-
ferent characteristics that allow it to eat, digest
and assimilate food best for that group. Since Os
have such strong stomach acid and respective
enzymes, they are able to metabolize almost
everything, even those foods not recommended
for them. However, the As and Bs do not have
this luxury and must be more careful in their eat-
ing habits.
Weissman goes on to say if you eat a food not
compatible with your blood type and stomach
enzymes, the food is not broken down or digest-


ed properly, and the vitamins and minerals are
not absorbed into your bloodstream to fuel and
cannot nourish your body. Your body reacts to the
food just as it would any foreign substance and
you might experience a stomach ache, gas, bloat-
ing, or even worse - vomiting or diarrhea.
According to Weissman, if you happen to be a
blood type A, your blood is already thick, so it
moves slower and your heart must pump harder
to push the blood through your arter-
;AVER ies. The thick, slow moving blood
makes it easier for plaque to build up
n Stroup in the artery walls, causing high blood
S pressure, heart disease or other illness-
es.
If you are type A or AB and the meat you keep
eating is not metabolizing, your bloodstream is
now flooded with thick, sticky blood loaded with
saturated animal fat, just looking for a nice spot
to deposit itself. It doesn't take a genius to see
why As and ABs have difficulty eating and
digesting meat. Type Os have thinner blood and
can usually completely metabolize meat and gain
all the benefits from it, with the exception of
pork, at little or no risk.
. If a type 0 or type A eats bread or white pota-
toes, for example, these foods contain little, if
any fat,. so the body will not deposit the non-
metabolized portion on the artery wall. It is more
likely to store the unused food as fat. Herice, the
weight gain. Eventually all this excess fat may
lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, or other ill-
nesses.
Any food containing saturated fat has the
greatest potential for harm to the body, in the
long run, regardless of blood type
Weissman is promoting a theory and a diet.
Whether or not you go on a diet it is between you
and your doctor. Any "diet" is really a lifestyle
change. You know what foods "settle" better for
you, which are easiest to digest, and which give
you gas or upset your stomach.
Odds are you are already avoiding those that
cause you discomfort.

Cool slow

cooker meals

for hot days


hot out, we
I can't do carry-
out every
night But what
I come up with
is boring. Any interesting
ideas?
Redlands, Calif.

On a steamy day, the last
thing you want to do is heat
up the kitchen. To beat the
heat, yet still give your family
a delicious meal, dig out your
slow cooker. Yes, the slow
cooker you put away when
the weather started warming
up!
On my Web site
(BettyCrockercom), you'll find
taste-tempting slow-cooker
recipes for creating summer-
time meals. Just start with a
main dish or side prepared in
your slow cooker, then build a
meal around it with go-alongs
from the deli, supermarket or
grill. You might want to give
one of these cool, slow-cooker
meal ideas a try:
Beat-the-Heat Barbecue
Slow starter: Barbecued
baby back ribs or spare ribs
slow cooked in your favorite
sauce
Add to it: Grilled corn on
the cob, creamy coleslaw
from the dell and fresh-from-
the-garden sliced tomatoes
sprinkled with chopped green
onions
Ooh-la-la Sandwich
Supper
Slow starter: Tender, thin
beef slices warmed in broth
Add to it: Crusty hoagie
buns for meat, broth ladled
into individual cups for dip-
ping sandwiches, dell potato
salad and wedges of juicy
watermelon
Thai Tonight
Slow starter: Asian-influ-
enced chicken simmered in a
zesty tomato-y sauce sea-
soned with ginger, soy sauce,
peanut butter and lime juice
Add to it Cooked rice, thin-
ly sliced cucumbers in a mint
vinaigrette and slices of hon-
eydew melon, mango or
papaya

Calypso-Style Cookout
Slow starter: Cuban black
beans and rice - a traditional
Caribbean side dish accented
with cumin and jalapefio
chilies
Add to it Chicken or pork
tenderloin rubbed with jerk
spices and grilled, a salad of
cubed cantaloupe and avoca-
dos drizzled with poppy seed
dressing
All-American Picnic
Slow starter: Barbecued
beef slow-cooked to tender
perfection in a tangy sauce
with a hint of sweetness
Add to it: Sesame buns
along with lettuce and thin
slices of tomato and onion,

deli and ice cream cones for
dessert

When your purpose is good, honesty serves it VIm
901 U.S. 07 NORTH


It's easy to tell the truth when .-
it serves us. It can be tough when
it doesn't - or we think it does-
n't.
Truth always serves us. And
telling it always serves our self-
esteem. How we feel about our- ,
selves is based on how well we .A
live our values. ?
Sometimes we forget. Case in
point: When Stacy told Brad IN
about her tai chi classes, Brad RELATI
contained a cynical remark and
instead proclaimed the merits of Jan
tai chi. He wanted another date,
and a "little thing" like tai chi
wasn't going to stand in his way.
When honesty infringed on what he want-.
ed, he impulsively withheld it.
A few weeks later when Stacy told Brad
that she thought they were too different to
continue a relationship, Brad agreed and
told Stacy that all that tai chi and medita-
tion stuff was too weird for him.
Brad's purpose changed. Now, he simply
wanted to save face and find the door, and
he used "honesty" in a disparaging way to
serve his purpose.
"In a good relationship, partners use hon-
esty to connect. They tell the truth, but they
never use honesty as an excuse to be judg-
mental," says Sandra Anne Taylor, author
of "Secrets of Attraction."
Brad didn't really want a good relation-
ship. If he had, honesty would have served


SIDE
ONSHIPS

Denise


his purpose. He would have
developed a good relationship
with Stacy or moved on better
prepared to develop a good rela-
tionship with somebody else.
I often hear from readers who
give honesty a try, despite their
fears that what they have to share
might scare somebody away.
Inevitably, the honesty builds
intimacy, because intimacy is a
psychological knowledge of each
other.
Even if the truth does scare
somebody away from the
prospect of a romantic relation-
ship, there's more closeness and


respect. There is foundation for a real rela-
tionship of another kind.
Other readers are afraid of hurting some-
body's feelings with the truth. They want to
be kind and they want to be well thought of.
But there is no being kind with a lie. You
don't spare a partner who has bad breath by
telling him that he doesn't.
Under what circumstances does lying to
a sweetheart really serve her? There are
none. And if her sweetheart is lying to her,
it's probably because he doesn't want to
deal with the consequences of sharing the
truth.
When you lie to somebody, you express
a lack of trust in either the person you're
lying to or yourself. You can both handle
the truth. And you can trust the truth to


serve both of you.
You can't have a genuinely fulfilling life
or relationship without the truth. The more
private or deep the truth is, the richer the
life and the intimacy.
Yet people sometimes lie in hopes of get-
ting the closeness or the relationship they
want, but neither can be had based on lies.
Nor can a good relationship be had based
on doling out honesty to hurt somebody or
serve your.ego.
When Brad used honesty to save face, he
was hiding his feelings of embarrassment
and rejection. He was being dishonest with
himself. And therein lies the root of bad
relationships.
We can't really be honest with other peo-
ple until we are honest with ourselves.
When we realize that the truth serves us,
it's easy to see how it also serves others.
When we're ready to be honest with our-
selves - and live a genuinely happy life -
being honest with others will always serve
our purpose.

Aunt lays down the law with drug-dealing nephew


Dear Abby: I work for a law enforce-
ment agency. Several months ago, my 23-
year-old nephew (I'll call him Dion) moved
in with me and my mother. Dion is not an
orphan. Both his parents are living.
Last month, I discovered that Dion has
been smoking marijuana, and selling it, too.
When I confronted him, his response was,
"Marijuana is better than alcohol." I point-
ed out to him that alcohol is legal and mar-
ijuana isn't, and I don't want it in my house.
I could lose my job over .this, but he and
Mom just don't seem to "get it."
After trying to help my nephew by
searching for jobs and helping him with
financial aid for school, I realized that I was
doing the majority of the legwork while he
was lying in bed all day and watching TV.
I have told Dion he must be out by the
middle of next month, but my mother isn't
backing me .piOn this. (She's an enabler,
and. I think T am, too;) I. told Mom .that.
either hegdW&t' I'Pdo. Is she right? Am I
being unreasonable? - Aunt at the End of
My Rope in Pasadena
Dear Aunt: You're not being unreason-
able; you're being pragmatic and rational.
Has it occurred to you that your nephew
might not just be lying in bed all day watch-
ing TV, but also stoned out of his gourd?
Stick to your guns. Your career could
depend on it.
If it is discovered that he has been deal-
ing an illegal substance from your premis-
es, you could lose not only your credibility,
but also your livelihood. If he has been


smoking grass in your house, it's
likely the scent is on your cloth-
ing. Let's pray you get this felon-
in-training out of there before a
member of the canine unit starts
wagging his tail in front of you.
Dear Abby: I have been dat-
ing "Matt" for about a year. We
have had a great relationship, and
I really adore him. Not long ago,
I had some severe financial set-
backs, so we decided to move in,
together to help me with the
expenses. ,
Although Matt is good to me,


DEARn

Jeanne P
i


he hasn't told me that he loves me. I don't
know if this is bothering me so much
because I'm used to praise, or if, after one
year, this phrase should have been spoken.
We share things that people who love each
other do, and I kind of feel cheated - like
.the relationship is somehow incomplete.
"I talked to my girlfriends. They agree
that if we live together and he essentially
takes care of me, he should have told me by
now. When I ask him about us and how he
feels, he says, "I care a lot about you," and
"You mean a lot to me." But when I asked
why he hasn't said "I love you," he told me
he doesn't feel that way yet - to give him
time. He said "I love you" means a lot to
him, and he isn't just going to throw it out
there to make me feel good.
The other night I was talking to him and
blurted out, "I love you." He said, "Oh,
baby," and acted like I hadn't said a word.


. - It left me feeling a terrible void.
- ', Am, I being unfair to this rela-
tionship and myself? - Loveless
in Wyoming
Dear Loveless: You are feel-
ing a terrible void because there
, is one. You are not living with
Matt because he wants to take
your relationship to the next
level; you are living with him
ABBY because you had financial set-
backs and he took you in. That's
Phillips charity, not love.
If you want to move this rela-
tionship forward, you may have
to take a giant step backward - specifical-
ly, save some money and move out. You
will never get him to love you by pressur-
ing him, but you might if you create a void
that he thinks only you can fill.

Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii.


Siemens motivated the group
to "grow Kiwanis" by adding
enthusiasm, excellence and pas-
sion.
Adams, president of the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring, said,
"I liked what Mr. Siemens said
about 'Together we can.' The
size of the Kiwanis Vision is
determined by the size of our
belief. It's not, 'What can I do?'


It's, 'What can WE do?'
Together we can. I can see
thousands of Kiwanians rising
to the challenge and saying,
Together we will!

me and I believe in what we do.
It's all worth it when you see
the smile on the faces of the
children we help," Adams con-
tinued.


Couple marries in drive-thru where they met


Associated Press
IRWIN, Pa. - Do you want
fries with those vows?
Ken Sinchar and Lori
Sherbondy have heard that and
every other fast-food joke since
they announced plans to marry
at a McDonald's drive-thru,
where they fell in love four
years earlier.
On Monday night, Sinchar


rolled through the drive-thru in
his white minivan, just as he
had done day after day, hoping
to chat with "that blue-eyed
brunette named Lori."
But on this night, Sinchar
rolled down his window,
Sherbondy slid open hers and
the couple grabbed hands as a
district judge pronounced them
husband and wife.


Sinchar was expecting to
pick up a Big Mac, not a date,
the first time he pulled through
the Norwin Towne Shopping
Center McDonald's.
"I didn't used to go for fast
food, but I looked at that
woman in the window, and
wow! I came back every
lunchtime after that," said
Sinchar, a 38-year-old floor


installer.
Sherbondy, 42, who's
worked at the restaurant for
eight years, said Sinchar made
an impression, too.
"It got to where everyone in
the store knew when it was
12:15, when my Hamburger
Happy Meal Man was coming
through," Sherbondy said.

upland where it commonly
dwells is ideal for development.
But University of Florida
researchers say the tortoise's
ability to survive in coastal
areas may be one key to future
preservation efforts.
A UF study of gopher tortois-
es on small islands near St.
Augustine could reveal whether
displaced colonies can be suc-
cessfully relocated to similar
sites in Florida and other states,
said Dana Ehret, a doctoral stu-
dent with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
"Not much is known about
gopher tortoise populations on
small islands, because
researchers have pretty much
overlooked them," Ehret said.
"For example, we don't know
how common these populations
are. how the tortoises cope with
the constant exposure to salt or
how they manage to keep their
burrows from being flooded by
the higher water table."
Gopher tortoise burrows are
a familiar sight in rural inland
areas from Louisiana to South
Carolina, the tortoise's native
range, he said. Marked by piles
of sand at theit entrances, the
burrows can be 10 feet deep and
40 feet long. More than 360
other species use the burrows
for shelter.
The tortoises are protected
by Florida law and developers
have several options when
specimens are found in areas
slated for construction, Ehret
said. They can build at a dis-
tance from burrows, move tor-
toises to other parts of the same
property, relocate tortoises to
distant properties or obtain per-
mits allowing work to proceed
in exchange for financial sup-
port of tortoise conservation.
The latter option preserves
tortoises and habitat elsewhere,
but animals on the development
site are often lost when burrows
collapse, he said.
Developers often prefer to
obtain the permits due to time
constraints, Ehret said. Some


tortoise experts consider the
permits an acceptable -
though not ideal - option,, and
believe present relocation
efforts have not succeeded as a
conservation measure.
"Relocation sounds like a
great idea, but in practice it's
had problems," Ehret said. "For
developers, there's a lot of work
involved in capturing tortoises
and arranging for them to be
placed on other property.
Researchers are concerned that
if the new habitat isn't just right
the tortoises will leave, and
may end up injured or killed
anyway."
Another drawback to current
relocation efforts is that tortois-
es placed on privately owned
land could be displaced again
by future development, said
Mike Moulton, a UF associate
professor of wildlife ecology
and conservation and Ehret's
faculty adviser. The UF
researchers believe a better
option may be to relocate tor-
toises on small islands likely to
remain undeveloped, either due
to government protection or
simply because they are unsuit-
able for development.
The UF study focuses on
gopher tortoise populations on


five small islands in the Atlantic
Intracoastal Waterway, he said.
Despite the reptiles' size - up
to 15 pounds - and ponderous
appearance, they float and are
sometimes observed swim-
ming.
Hundreds of islands are
found throughout the waterway,
which is a series of bays, estu-
aries and navigation channels
reaching from Miami, Fla. to
Norfolk, Va., Moulton said.
Other islands along the Atlantic
and Gulf coasts might also be
suitable as tortoise habitat.
"We hope that with the right
preparation, some of these
islands could serve as homes
for gopher tortoises and possi-
bly for beach mice, indigo
snakes and other species
impacted by development," he
said. "It might be possible to
construct new islands specifi-
cally for this purpose."
This fall, Ehret will help
monitor an experimental effort
to relocate Florida gopher tor-
toises to an island home. A
Flagler County developer has
worked with state agencies for
several years to arrange the
relocation, which is aimed at
establishing a permanent tor-
toise refuge, Ehret said.

In our prayers

The list of names in Sunday's News-Sun was massive,
but as the soldiers who make up the 651 Military Police
Company bid farewell to their families Tuesday morning
all that mattered were those who stood before them.
The company includes many from the 'Battery B' 3rd
Battalion 116th Field Artillery in Avon Park as well as
National Guardsmen from Wauchula and Arcadia.
Tuesday was the day they said goodbye to their families
before heading off for military police training in Fort
Dix, N.J., before receiving their overseas assignments.
Most expect to be deployed to Iraq.
About 500 soldiers, family members and community
supporters stepped out earlier this month for a send off
gathering at the Avon Park National Guard Armory.
Tuesday's showing was a little smaller, but the emotions
were maybe a bit more raw.
This time, goodbye to family members was in order.
David Greenslade, director of the Avon Park Chamber
of Commerce, has vowed to stay involved with the fam-
ily support group through the armory. Certainly there
will be more who will want to be involved.
Avon Park City Councilman George Hall is already
looking forward to the celebration planned for when the
soldiers return home. County Commissioner Edgar
Stokes showed the county's support at the event in Avon
Park by reading a resolution adopted by the county. He
reminded the soldiers they will be in the prayers offered
at the beginning of county commission meetings every
Tuesday.
How long the soldiers will be gone is anyone's guess.
It could be a year, two years or even longer.
The soldiers and their families will be in the prayers
from many of us on a daily basis.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Farewell, so long, adios and


It is official.
Tomorrow, I will be leaving
for college. Although I under-
stand that this is quite rare, do
not take it as a joke when I say
it will be the first time I have
moved. Ever.
The whole packing-up-all-
of-your-belongings-in-boxes
ordeal is still new to me. And I
don't think I have gotten used
to it yet.
Being that I am a native of
not only Avon Park, but the
greater area of Highlands
County, you could say that I
have my roots planted firmly
here. This is the place where I
was not only raised, but learned
just about everything that I
presently know. Perhaps I could
claim to know the ins and outs
of the area.
So, in this, my goodbye to
the county that has been so
much a part of my life for the
past 19 years, I will tell you a
few secrets behind the place.
However, listen real close now,
for I will not repeat this twice.
Now, way back in the deep'
country that many folks like to
call the "Old Bombing Range,"
or currently referred to as the
"Scrubs" by the younger crowd,


Working to

keep it clean

Editor:
I bike ride every day out to
Hammock Road and I have
used the bike path since it first
opened.
By the way, it is real nice.
Today when I was riding I
stopped to ask a lady, that I
have seen quite often picking
up trash and keeping it looking
clean, if she did this on her own
or if she did it for someone. She
told me she did this on her own.
I told her I thought this was
great!
I did not ask her name, but if
she reads this she .will know
who she is. I know the "cul-
prits" probably could care less,
but "I thanked her."

Be prepared for

the final days
Editor:
I feel I have to respond to a
letter in Wednesday's paper,
Aug. 10, rifled "Just how close
is destruction?"
That indeed is a good ques-
tion. Of course that depends on
how destruction is defined. As
we consider the biblical signs
of the times it seems clear to
me that Jesus could come very
soon.
Of course, if one doesn't
believe the Bible I don't know
what one would base one's
beliefs on. In which case, my
heart aches for that person.
I would be careful how I
referred to- God. The thunder
and lightning is one small sam-
ple of His capabilities: God cre-
ated this universe and every-
thing therein, including that
thunder and lightning.
All power is in His hands.
He can tear down or He can
build up. It all belongs to Him
and I might add, no group of
Christians are in control of the
federal government. If they
were, I have a feeling there are
many things in our society that
would be different.
However I'm not advocating
that any one group control our
nation.
God is in ultimate control,
but he does use people to carry
out his plans, of which, we may
not understand, but as a
Christian, one has faith and
knows that God does all things
well. He gave us a book of
instructions, the Holy Bible, to
live by and also gives us free-
dom of choice; otherwise we'd
be like robots. It is the choices
we've made that have gotten
this world in the shape it's in


MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey N. Murphy

is an old grave yard.
It is terribly hard to find, for
it is tucked behind a thicket of
bushes and trees. Yet, the sto-
ries that are told about the site is
not as easy to miss. You did not
hear it from me, but I would bet
many locals know the real story
behind those old graves if you
ask them.
With all of that story chasing,
you are bound to get hungry.
My personal favorites for Avon
Park dining include the
Olympic Restaurant and The
Depot. Trust me when I say that
if you ever want to find some-
one in town, look for them at
one of these locations first dur-
ing the eating hours. And


maybe pick up a bite to eat,
after all they serve great food.
As for the entertainment side
of the spectrum, check out the
Highlands Little Theatre. The
shows that are produced are all
local actors who are also non-
profit. If that alone doesn't get
to you, after seeing a show, you
might believe that you have
walked away from Broadway.
Another golden gem is the
Pineapple Shoppe right off of
U,S 27 entering Lake Placid. If
you have thought about it, they
probably have it there, every-
thing ranging from pineapple
snacks to delicious juices. One
could say it is kind of like a
Willy Wonka Factory, but for
pineapples.
If you are into the whole
haunted house thing, there has
been reports of sightings at
Harder Hall. Now, this is all just
speculation of course, but if I
were you I would check it out.
Be careful just to view the
ghostly figures from your car
though, for it is private proper-
ty.
If you have a child, or at least
one at heart, I would recom-
mend visiting one of the numer-
ous parks in the area. Two of


goodbye

my favorites are the one behind
the Winn-Dixie in Avon Park
and the one by the YMCA in
Sebring. There you are able to
swing to the sky, or dig a whole
to China or maybe even some-
thing in between.
Now that I am done being a
mini tour guide to the area I
want to give thanks. To obvi-
ously you for reading my week-
ly anecdotes and to the paper
itself for allowing me to do so.
Of course to my amazing
family who has inspired me to
reach for all I can dream and to
my teachers for educating me
so I will be able to do just that.
And lastly I would like for
you to know that 1 will be keep-
ing in touch. Perhaps the next
time you hear from me will be
from Fort Myers with another
story about the mishaps of a
Murphy's Law. May God bless.

Lindsey N. Murphy, an Avon
Park resident, can be contacted
by e-mail at apsweetie_04@
yahoo.com. Lindsey is going to
take some time off to settle into
college life, but she promises to
resume her column sometime
very soon.

and there are consequences to
our choices, be it national or
individual.
I was one of those who had
quite a bit of hurricane damage;
I always like to think positive.
When I think of what it could
have done that it didn't do, I
just feel very grateful.
God doesn't promise us life
will be perfect in this earth, just
because we are a Christian.
Read Job. When we read about
Paul in 2 Corinthians 11:24-27,
his life was anything but per-
fect. He was beaten, ship-
wrecked, put in prison but con-
tinued to carry on the ministry
God had called him to do. He
sang and worshipped.
You see, how we handle dif-
ficulty can be a real testimony
to those who are looking on. He
had that joy and peace that only
a Christian has. He knew if
God saw fit to take him that he
was prepared for Heaven and if
not, he would continue to 'do
what he had been called to do.
The letter stated that man
had done some wonderful
things. The only thing man has
done is what God has given
him the ability to do. We are all
totally dependent on God. He
made man from the dust of the
earth and breathed the breath of
life into his nostrils and he
became a living soul. He
caused Adam (first man) to fall
asleep and took a rib from his
side and created woman so


Adam would have a helpmate
(Genesis 2:7-25). He provided
a perfect home with everything
they would need, then gave
them freedom of choice. He
told them there was one tree
they were not to eat of but
when they were tempted, they
yielded and then sin entered the
world because of man's disobe-
dience.
Those who choose to be obe-
dient and following the Creator
are Heaven-bound. Those who
don't are on the way to Hell,
where Satan reigns.
God is not pleased for any to
travel the wrong path, but He
has sent His most treasured
possession, Jesus, into the
world to die on the cross for
each of us to provide forgive-
ness. He lived among us for 33
years to give us an example and
ascended up to Heaven and sat
down on the right hand of the
Father to intercede for us (Acts
1:10).
Romans 10:9 tells us to
believe in our heart and confess
with our mouth and thou shall
be saved. When He left this
earth he promised to return
leaving us a command
(Matthew 28:19-20).
Do you know Him as your
personal savior? Get ready, this
is a time of preparation. Read
the Word, talk to Him as he
speaks to you.

More praise for

theater's show

EDITOR'S NOTE: The
Special STARS Recreation Club
in Highlands County was invit-
ed to Highlands Little Theatre
in Sebring Aug. 7for 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.
Some members of the STARS
submitted their personal letters
of appreciation, many of which
appeared in Sunday's edition of
the News-Sun, one however did
not make publication. It fol-
lows:

Editor:
I'm writing to let you know
that I enjoyed the play
"Cabaret." It was exciting for
me because it was a dress
rehearsal; we were the first to
see it before opening night. I
especially liked the tour back-
stage and the music and the
dancing. Everyone was so
good. It was after the play.
Thank you very much for invit-
ing us there.

Bush pla:

President makes

a brilliant move

Who says President Bush
isn't brilliant? His maneuver in
appointing Judge John Rohber Il
has completely throttled the
Democrats in the highslt-stakc-s
game of his seconii ler In
The key is that Bush has iuseCl
the Democrals' opposition lto
, his district and circuit-court
.judicial appointments against
them and made it a ratification


of the Roberts candi-
dacy. Simply put, by
choosing a judge
whom the Democrats
confirmed unani-
mously when he was
nominated for the
D.C. Circuit Court--
- and whom they did
not filibuster - Bush
has made the
Democrats impotent.


MORI
Ml


The' Democrats
thought they were DitA
preparing for the -
Supreme Court battle
when they hit on their strategy
of filibustering Bush's judicial
nominations. They saw these
battles as spring training to get
them in shape for the real fighl
that would come when Bush
made his Supreme Court nomi-
" nation.
Instead, their strategy has
backfired massively. By lend-
ing such a high profile to their
opposition to Bush's lower-
" court appointments, the
Democrats have effectively
denied themselves the ability to
filibuster anyone of whom they
have approved in the past.

putting him over and dodging

Has Bush fooled the left or

be the judicial conservative,
respectful of precedent -
including Roe - that the left

his way through a minefield in
selecting the most conservative


On the other hand, if Hillary
joins what is likely to be a small
minority of Democrats in
opposing Roberts, she is bely-
ing her supposed move to the
center and showing that, when
the chips are down, she will
tack to the left. In posing such a
dilemma for Mrs. Clinton, Bush
has again shown his capacity
for deft political maneuver.
Bush can just follow the
Roberts playbook as future
Supreme Court vacancies come
up. Just appoint the most con-
servative available jurist whom
the Democrats did not filibuster
and he can escape political
damage while appeasing his
hard-right followers.
Bush is brilliant. There is no
other way to read it.

We are all touched by domestic violence


Domestic violence
hits home again in JANELLE
the recent loss of JANELLE
Avon Park attorney Janelle
Jannette Branham. a e.
It truly was a
tragedy. Society
would be blessed to have more
good-hearted people like her
around.
What were the signs that
were trying to warn her this
could happen? Did she see it
coming? Some experts say ver-
bal or mental abuse may lead to
physical abuse. Statistics seem
to support that theory.
If only these people, (men
and women alike) who are
being abused, knew their value.
Some animals get treated better
than these victims. Surely you
are worth more than an animal?
I've known women myself
who have gotten into these con-
trolling relationships. I have
tried to warn them but they
either think it isn't "that bad" or
"he didn't mean it"; some have
even had their husbands sleep


'S

D


with a knife under
'JARGON their pillows. That
sounds pretty seri-
ous to me.
ennison I really don't
know what the
answer is for these
abused victims. I guess all we
can do is continue to pray, love
them, counsel them to get out of
the situation and be there for
them through the process.
We can somehow help the
children by getting them out of
the environment for short peri-
ods of time, give them a taste of
another way of living, other
than with fear, harassment, vio-
lence, verbal abuse, (to show
them that it is not a normal
behavior or lifestyle) etc. When
they grow up they can choose to
live better if they have seen
there are other ways to live, that
they deserve to be loved, treat-
ed with respect and cherished.
There is help out there, but
you've got to love yourself
enough to reach out for it. We


can take you to the police sta-
tion, but you have to press
charges. We can pray, but you
have to work with God for
things to change.
There is life after abuse if
you will accept the support out
there.
If fear is holding you back,
what's the worst thing that
could happen? You could end
up going to meet your Maker.
But staying in the situation
could lead to that anyway. By
leaving, you'd have a chance at
finding a new, rewarding life.
In the Bible, God gives us a
multiple choice test, saying he
has set before us. life or death ...
then He gives us the right
answer ... Choose life, that you
and your children may live!
I hope and pray you pass the
test.

Post contributes $2,200 to Family Emergency Fund _o


News-Sun
AVON PARK - The Avon
Park American Legion Post 69
and Ladies Auxiliary Unit 69
wanted to make sure the
National Guard Bravo Battery
had a chance to see firsthand
that the veterans of yesteryear
would be here on the homefront
supporting their families emer-
gency needs while they are
away.
Both groups recently made
donations of $1,000 each to the
Family Emergency Fund. The
auxiliary raised its donation
from the sale of yellow bows
and poppies.
A post member and retired
National Guard lieutenant
colonel contributed $200 to
make the first contribution total
$2,200 from the Avon Park
Post. Through the generosity of
District 8 and friends at the
Ellenton Post, they donated an
eight-foot-tall plastic yellow
ribbon that will be placed on the
front of the Armory until the

battery comes home.
The yellow ribbon campaign
is being supported by all VFW
posts in the county, as well as
American Legion posts an
AmVets posts.
Bows can be purchased at


any of the county's veterans
organizations.
Charlotte Cooper of CC
Supply in Sebring helped get
the bows and donated the bal-
loons for the family send-off at
the Armory last Saturday.


Marina getting second look at H.L. Bishop Park


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - County com-
missioners told staff Tuesday to
take a second look at allowing a
privately run marina at H.L.
Bishop Park in Lake Placid.
Rick Bateman of Tampa
wants to build a 30-foot-by-40-
foot building for a concession
stand and docks for a one-pump
fueling station. He would pay
the county a sublease of 2 cents
per gallon of gasoline and 10
percent of other sales.
He estimates that would
bring $3,000-$4,000 per year.
A similar proposal originally
came from B. Michael Wiggins
of Coral Springs. He backed out
after learning how much envi-
ronmental and fire protection
measures would cost.
Both Wiggins, Bateman and
commissioners agree a fueling
station would be better than
boaters lugging cans of gaso-
line to their boats and risk
spilling the fuel in the water.
Bateman promised to have an
employee, not boaters, pump
the gasoline. Commissioner
Guy Maxcy liked that


approach, saying he once
watched a friend in
Chokoloskee accidentally
pump 10 gallons of gasoline
into a fishing rod holder.
Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius said a
marina would be great idea -
somewhere else. She said the
4.5-acre park is already over-
crowded during the summer.
Pontius said the county
would have to vacate a building
used to store mowing equip-
ment, which Bateman would
then replace. Bateman would
remove a large shade tree by the
boat ramp and enlarge a reten-
tion pond. Pontius warned the
county would be involved,
since it leases the park from the
town of Lake Placid.
The park sits on the outside
of a blind curve on Lake June
Road.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart asked why Bateman
didn't choose private property.
He said it was already part of
the county bid.
Purchasing Director Gerald
"Jed" Secory said the annual
rent would take 25 years to pay


off a $30,000 fuel system and
the overall $150,000 invest-
ment Bateman proposes to
make. The county might have a
liability risk, too, he said.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said a marina would
aggravate the current parking
problem. The developer would
need to accommodate parking
for the extra traffic and the cost
of the modifying the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District permit.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
thought traffic would decrease
from fewer boaters loading up
to get gas and coming back to
launch again. However, he said
the risk versus the rent is not a
good deal.
"I'm not sure if this level of
public and private partnership
is what we want," he said.
County Attorney Ross
Macbeth said insurance protec-
tion is available. The service
would likely be available only
on days when Bateman could
make a profit.
Still, Bullard asked staff to
find out what Bateman would
need to do to improve parking
and cover liabilities.

Square off in

kickoff classic

Thursday night
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID - It's still
the preseason, but that doesn't
mean it's not time to compete.
While Thursday's kickoff
classic between visiting
Sebring and Lake Placid does-
n't count in the standings, both
head coaches say their teams
will be gunning to come out on
top.
"As long as they turn that
scoreboard on, we're going to
try to win," Lake Placid head
coach Shaw Maddox said.
"It doesn't matter if it does-
n't count or not," Sebring head
coach Jared Hamlin said. "I
want to win ballgames, and our
kids want to win to win ball-
games, and I want to see how
they react in situations."
It is the chance for the teams
to measure themselves against
live competition that remains
most important, and both
coaches still have plenty of
questions to answer.
Hamlin has had to find eight
new starters on defense and
seven on offense, and is still
-unsettled on just who will win
several bf the jobs.
"We've got a lot of holes to
fill, and we're going to see
which holes we can fill in this
game," he said. "We've had
good competition in the presea-
son, and we want to see which
ones step up when the lights
come on."
Prominent among the com-
petitions is the one at running
back, where A.C. Wilson, Willy
Lowe and T.J. Williams are all
fighting for halfback duties.
"We've got to get all three of
them the ball (Thursday),
there's no doubt," Hamlin said.
Conversely, the quarterback
battle that went on for most of
the summer is over. Chris
Welborn will be at the controls,
but at least for this week, the
offense won't require its opera-
tor to turn too many knobs or
dials.
"We're going to do our base
stuff," Hamlin said. "We're
going to run our base offense
and base defense and see where
we're at. I don't have a clue
right now where we're at. As
far as how good we're going to
be, I don't know."

Jesse Litsch gets a promotion after tearing

up the rookie-level Appalachian League


By SCOTt DRESSEL
Sports Editor

The New York-Penn League may be
light years away from the majors,
but for Jesse Litsch, it's an lot clos-
er than he was a week ago.
In fact, Litsch's move from the Pulaski
(Va.) Blue Jays of the rookie-level
Appalachian League to the Class A Auburn
(N.Y.) Doubledays puts him 712 miles closer
to where he ultimately wants to end up: in
Toronto, with the Blue Jays.
After just a few short months in the
Appalachian League, Litsch proved he was
ready for the next step in his baseball career.
The former South Florida Community
College standout displayed the form that
landed him state pitcher of the year honors
as a freshman, logging a league-leading 11
starts and 65.2 innings while compiling a 5-1
record with a 2.74 ERA and 67 strikeouts
against only 10 walks.
Litsch is taking the move up with his
usual aplomb.
"I did what I could do and did good, so I
get to take a step up," he said Monday,
shortly after arriving in Auburn. "Hopefully
next year, I'll make another step and go from
there."
After such a torrid start to his pro career,
Litsch said he was expecting to get moved
up.
"The only thing that would have held me


back was how many innings I threw. I threw
a lot of innings in college and they were hes-
itant, but I pretty much figured I was going
to get called up. I'm going to jump into the
rotation, and I start on Friday."
The 65.2 innings Litsch threw in Pulaski
is impressive considering he was on a strict
pitch-count limit of 80 the entire time. That
didn't stop him from going deep into many
games, and he retired 22 in a row in one
game earlier this season, pitching into the
eighth inning.
"(Monday) night, I only threw 42/,
(innings) because I got my pitch count up. I
struck out the last guy I faced and then they
took me out," Litsch said.
Still, the pitch count has helped save his
arm for what he expects will be four or five
more starts in Auburn.
"I'm not going to say I'm not tired
because I'm like 200 innings into it right
now," he said. "Now I've just got to concen-
trate on hitting spots. That's what I'm doing
right now, hitting spots like crazy. That's
how you get people out."
SFCC head coach Rick Hitt said he wasn't
surprised at all to see Litsch get a promotion
so early in his career.
"He's one of those guys who lives to
play," Hitt said. "He's got good stuff and
he's an incredible competitor. Performance is

fans, viewers

with delay

SPRINGFIELD, N.J.
Give Phil Mickelson some
credit. When he's not missing
5-footers or exchanging high-
fives with the fans, he thinks
about things like this.
Apparently the people run-
ning the PGA Championship
don't.
If they had, 35,000 fans
wouldn't have crammed the
exits and gone home with an
empty feeling Sunday after
spending $95.40 on a ticket
and countless hundreds more
in the merchandise tent to
watch someone win the final
major of the season.
If they had, millions of oth-
ers who invested a few hours
watching on TV wouldn't have
felt-cheated, either.
It wasn't that hard. They
had plenty of warning.
All they had to do was
check the weather forecast.
Or maybe just listen to Phil.
"I had certainly asked to
maybe go an hour earlier to try
to get it in," Mickelson said.
Incredibly, the thought of
moving up tee times wasn't
even entertained by the PGA
of America, despite weather so
threatening that everyone in
the state of
New
Jersey
knew
about it.
They
wanted to
please
CBS and
finish just
before "60 TIM
Minutes" DAHLBERG
so they
took a Associated Press
gamble -
that the
storms wouldn't come.
They lost, but the biggest
. losers were the fans.
They were going to offices
and other workplaces instead-
of Baltusrol Golf Club on
Monday morning when
Mickelson and the other lead-
ers returned to finish their last
few holes. They were working
instead of watching television
when Mickelson was crowned
the new PGA champion.
Blame it on greed, and
blame it on television. Blame
it on PGA officials who cower
to CBS - which said it was
the PGA's responsibility to set
the tee times, not the net-
work's - so much they didn't
even dare raise the issue of
moving things up with the net-
work on Sunday.
There's plenty of blame to
go around.
"I know TV rules the world
and all of that," Stuart
Appleby said on Sunday. "But
I don't know how TV rules the
world at 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning."

Young Dragons expecting to end season on high note


By SCOWT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKE PLACID - The Dragons are
building in hopes of making a big splash at
the end of the season.
With a pool full of younger swimmers and
a core group of veterans, coach Cindy
Rivers said the Dragons will be a work in
progress in 2005 as the newcomers gain
valuable experience.
"I'm pleased with the number of kids
we've got. We have I think at last count 36,
which is a good number for our size school,"
Rivers said. "We have a lot of new swim-

o-This time Tony Stewart didn't
climb the fence. Why? There are
no grandstands at the flagstand
at Watkins Glen, only a scaffold
for the use of TV cameramen.
"There would've been, like,
three people to enjoy it," said
Stewart.
> Look at the variety of Stewart's
five victories in the past seven
races: Two road courses (Sono-
ma and Watkins Glen), a restric-
tor-plate track (Daytona), a flat
mile track (New Hampshire) and
Indy. Some drivers don't pro-
duce that kind of variety in a ca-
reer.
�. One day a road-racing special-
ist is going to win one of these
races. Road racers finished sec-
ond at Watkins Glen in 2003
and 2004. This time, they took
third and fourth, respectively,
with Boris Said and Scott Pruett.
> Perhaps Robby Gordon has
turned the corner. His runner-up
finish to Stewart was his first in
the top 10 all year. He expects
to be strong next week in Michi-
gan. Then again, he's expected
to be strong all year.
a By winning his 24th race. Stew-
art took over 24th place on
NASCAR's all-time list of win-
ners.
po Stewart has led the most laps
in eight of the season's 22
races, including six of the past
eight. The last time the circuit
visited Michigan, Stewart led 97
laps but finished second to Greg
Biffle, but it's where his hot
streak really began.
> During that span of eight races,
Stewart has gone from being
380 points behind Jimmie John-
son to leading him by 105 in the
Nextel Cup point standings.
� After four more races, of
course, point margins won't
mean very much. "Who cares?"
asked Stewart. "Nobody else is
going to." That's because the
points will be reconfigured after
the regular season, with the top
10 separated by only 45 points.

Kurt Busch leaving Roush Racing in '07 ... is he a lame duck?


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week

Kurt Busch surprised most ob-
servers last week when he abruptly
announced he had signed a deal to
leave Roush Racing when his contract
expires at the end of the 2006 season.
Busch will join Penske Racing South,
taking over the No. 2 Dodgle currently
driven by retiring Rusty Wallace,
though the -move apparently won't
take effect until 2007.
What would appear to be a unique
set of circumstances seems to be get-
ting commonplace. Jamie McMurray
will make a similar move. going from
Chip Ganassi's team to Roush but only
after his contractual obligations are
filled in 20066
Busch, of course, is the reigning
Nextel Cup champion. Why would he
leave his current team, given its level
of success'
"It's too early to talk about '0"
stuff," Busch said. "Right now, I've
got 2005 to drive for this champi-
onship. We're in good position.
So, that's where we sit.
It's hard to go into the . -
future."
Busch asked Roush
to release him from
the final year of his
existing contract,
but so far, Roush
seems to be in-
tent on requir- .
ing that Busch .2]
remain as ,5
driver of the ,
No. 97 Ford
next year


"I'm still contractually obligated to
drive this car in 2005 and in 2006. I
told Jack (Roush) that. I signed with a
different team for 2007 because of op-
portunities and timing. I believe it
was good for Kurt Busch, but I'm still
obligated to drive this car, which I
told Jack I'd do ..."
According to
Roush, Busch
called the move
"an opportunity
of a lifetime."
"It's really a
matter of sur-
rounding your-
self with the
right equip-
ment in a � *"
timely man- -
ner." said
Busch "I
believe, with
the way that
I'm set up
right now\,
W\e


still have a shot at winning the cham-
pionship this year, as well as 2006.
When 2007 arrives, it will be a whole
new opportunity to see what I can do
to win races."
A subpar showing at Watkins Glen,
where Busch was involved in an acci-
dent and wound up 39th, dropped him
from fifth to sixth in the Nextel Cup
points standings with four races re-
maining until the Chase begins.
"The chemistry is great with
our program," Busch insisted.
"We're a strong team, on what
we did last year, at this point.
And just the speech and the
motivation that I gave them
he team , they know that it
wasn't them, they know
that it wasn't me, they know
. " that it's not Roush Racing,
they know that it's this busi-
:. ness And. they're here to
give 100. percent, just like I'm
going to gi\ e 150 percent to try
to k in this championship this year
and in 'iii,"

Casey Mears vs.
NASCAR officials
Mears had high hopes at the
Glen but had to settle for 23rd place
after being punished for speeding on
pit road. "They called us for pit-road
speeding, and I was very conserva-
tive coming into the pits. I'm con-
fused. I don't know what happened.
They say it's really accurate. ... I'm
really baffled why I got called for
speeding. We had to come back in
and make a pass (through the pits),
and we were in the back the rest of
the day." '
NASCAR This Week's Monte
Dutton gives his take: "Supposedly
NASCAR monitors pit-road speeds
electronically, but its officials have
never publicly provided a complete
listing proving that certain cars went
too fast and certain others didn't.
Mears isn't the first to be 'baffled' by
a call."

Michigan a trendsetter
for tracks that followed
The configuration of Michigan In-
ternational Speedway - D shape,
moderate banking - has greatly in-
fluenced the design of subsequent
tracks, but Michigan itself is hardly
new. It opened in 1969, and it had a
clone from the very beginning. Anoth-
er track, Texas World Speedway, was
virtually the same, but that track suc-
cumbed to financial problems, and
its last Cup race took place in 1981.




New rule could help with
recent tire problems
Repeated tire problems in recent
races have led NASCAR officials to
step in and limit chassis adjustments
credited with causing some of those
problems. Beginning with this week's
race at Michigan International Speed-
way, a new camber rule will be imple-
mented limiting the angle of front
tires to eight degrees. NASCAR al-
ready has a rear-camber rule of two
degrees and checks cars with a cam-
ber gauge during inspection.





If Stewart's not the champ,
it's time to scrap 'Chase'
I'm still not sure why this "Chase
for the Championship" is necessary.
Tony Stewart doesn't need to prove
himself over the last 10 races; he's
proving every week that he's the best
driver on the circuit. Whether you love
him ot hate him, that point really
can't be argued.
Here's what's sad: The fact that
he's controlling his emotions is
what's led him to great things this
year. But watch him blow up if he
leads the pack by 200 points enter-
ing the final 10 races and doesn't
win the title!

Frerotte not slacking off


after getting starting nod


Associated Press
DAVIE - Gus Frerotte is
excited about the opportunity to
work exclusively with the
Miami Dolphins' first-team
offense this week, but he's not
ready to claim the starting quar-
terback job as his own.
"I don't feel that way at all,"
Frerotte said Tuesday. "I just
know I've got to keep working
and we all have to keep pushing
as quarterbacks because there
was one season in 12 years
where I've started every game
and made it through the whole
season. More times than not,
there are going to be other guys
that are going to have to step in
and play."
Although both Frerotte and
Jay Feeley are still listed
together as first teamers on the
latest depth chart, coach Nick
Saban said Monday that
Frerotte was a "little bit ahead"
of Feeley and would start
Saturday night's preseason
game at Pittsburgh.
Frerotte and Feeley had
taken turns starting the first two
preseason games and working
with the first-team offense over
the first three weeks of training
camp. However, both struggled
in Saturday night's 27-17 loss
at Jacksonville. .
Frerotte was 6-for-14 for 51
yards, while Feeley was 6-for-
13 for 60 yards and an intercep-
tion. The Dolphins fell behind
27-3, and Frerotte led them to
their only points in the first
three quarters.
Working exclusively with the
first team this week would
seem to give Frerotte the oppor-


PGA

Appleby said he was sur-
prised tee times weren't moved
up earlier than the scheduled 3
p.m. start for the leaders when
strong thunderstorms were
forecast for the afternoon.
If he was surprised by that,
think of how he might feel
after hearing the explanation
why.
For the record, here it is:
"If we absolutely knew for
sure we were going to be hit at
6 in the afternoon, then we
would certainly talk about it
and figure out if it made sense
to make an alteration," said
Kerry Haigh, who runs tourna-
ments for the PGA of America.
Well, yeah. See what you
can do about finding that
weatherman who can tell you
for sure when and where a
storm will hit. We might be
able to find him work some-
where.
Weather forecasting may be
as much art as it is science, but
the forecasts for Sunday after-
noon were more threatening
than any all week. They called
for a 60 percent chance of
some pretty serious thunder-
storms in the Springfield, N.J.,
area.
The PGA had a team of
weather forecasters on site, but
really all anyone had to do was
tune into the TV news the
night before to know the
storms were coming.


tunity to pull away from Feeley
and perhaps even shut the door
on the competition, but Frerotte
isn't looking at it in those
terms.
"You know what, it doesn't
matter to me," Frerotte said.
"I'm approaching it the same
way. ... You've got to still go
out there and make the right
decisions and make the plays."
Saban's decision was a clear
setback for Feeley, who ended
last season as Miami's starter
before missing the regular sea-
son finale with an injury.
"I'm not happy about it, but
that's the way it's going right
now," Feeley said.

Ward returns to
Steelers' practice
On a night they ran back an
interception and two kicks for
touchdowns, the Pittsburgh
Steelers' best return came a few
hours before they beat the
Philadelphia Eagles.
Hines Ward ended a two-
week holdout that concluded
just as it began - with Ward
wanting more money and the
Steelers declining to give it to
him until he showed up and
began practicing,
Ward's absence was the
longest by a Steelers veteran
player since Pro Bowl running
back Barry Foster stayed out
for nearly three weeks in 1993
before doing exactly what Ward
did by returning without a new
deal. There is every indication
the Steelers want to work out an
extension with Ward and quick-
ly, just as they did with Foster.


The tee times were the same
as they were the day before,
when Mickelson was also in
the last group. There was no
rain, but Mickelson said it was
a struggle to see the last three
or four holes because of fading
light.
But Haigh said the subject
of moving the tee times up was
never raised. The PGA didn't
even ask.
"There was no discussion,"
he said.
Don't tell that to Tiger
Woods, who likely would have
climbed into his private jet and
headed home Sunday night
instead of spending another
day in suburban New Jersey.
Woods finished his round at 2-
under-par, two shots off the
lead, but had to hang around
another day just in case.
The PGA has always been
the stepchild of the majors, not
given its due because it's not a
national championship like the
British and U.S. Opens and is
not played each year in golf's
cathedral at Augusta National.
Before Sunday, the only real
knock about the people run-
ning the PGA of America was
that they tended to sell the
rights to host the tournament
and the Ryder Cup to the high-
est bidder.
This time, though, they sold
out golf fans everywhere.

everything in pro ball and he's
performing regularly. I'm real
happy for him."
While the promotion is a
good thing for Litsch's career,
it's not exactly a major jump.
In fact, he could just as easily
have been assigned to Auburn
from the start. Former Avon
Park and Florida Southern star
Matt Mercurio was sent to the
Boston Red Sox affiliate in the
New York-Penn League after
being drafted this year.
"I don't think it's much dif-
ference," said Litsch, who was
drafted in the 24th round by
the Blue Jays after his fresh-
man season and signed prior to
this year's draft. "I think I'll be
all right. It's pretty much the
same thing. They just send the.
higher-rounders to the Penn
league and then the lower-
rounders, they send to the
Appalachian League. It's just
more young kids in the
Appalachian League."
Not that there isn't some
tough competition in rookie
ball.
"We played (against) three
first-rounders," Litsch said of
his time in Pulaski, a town he
finds to be just like Avon Park.
"It's a good quality of baseball.
Junior college is there with it,
but we faced a kid throwing 97
(Sunday) night. You don't see
that (in college)."
Litsch credits the addition of
a changeup to his arsenal with
helping him dominate in the
Appalachian League.
"They've changed all my
mechanics around and in col-
lege I never really threw a
changeup, and now it's one of
my best pitches if not my best
pitch," he said. "I was fastball-
slider (in college). I never real-
ly knew how good a pitch a
changeup was. Now I know."
"He's always had a change-
up; he just throws it a lot more
now," Hitt said. "His changeup
has always been good."

Hitt, who said he would
sometimes have to force Litsch
to use his changeup for the
Panthers, added that the pitch
is what Litsch needs to compli-
ment his slider, especially
against left-handed hitters.
"To get left-handed hitters
out in the big leagues, if you
don't have a changeup as a
right-hander, unless you're
throwing in 98, you're going to
need that pitch. The more con-
sistent he becomes with that
pitch, the better chance he has
to climb the ladder because
he'll get a lot more people out.
He's a little hard-headed when
it comes to that, or he has been
in the past."
Hitt also thinks the fact
Litsch is facing wooden bats
has been a big help.


"He may give up a hit or
two on a great out-pitch slider
with an aluminum bat, but he's
probably getting ground-ball
outs and strikeouts with wood-
en bats.
"(As) one of his fun things
in the fall when we used to
practice and scrimmage with
wood bats, he used to love to
throw two-seamers on the
inner half (of the plate) and get
guys to break bats. I'm sure
he's having fun doing that."
While another promotion
this season is unlikely, Litsch
is approaching things with the
attitude that he's going to
move up again, and soon.
"I always expect to do
well," he said. "If I don't, I
don't and it's no big deal, but I
always think high."

what his starting lineup will
look like, but he, too, must
decide on a halfback, with
Rashaad Brown and O.J.
Williams both making pushes.
Still, senior Brent Bierman will
be there to carry a major part of
the load at fullback, and class-
mate Quay Crenshaw is
entrenched at quarterback.
"They've improved a
whole lot, and that's going to
be tough," Hamlin said, tip-
ping his hat to Maddox.
"They're going to come out
and they're going to want
some of us. They're going to

Maddox, though, is well
aware of the inherent disadvan-
tage his team faces playing an
opponent from a higher classi-
fication.
"It's obvious they've got
twice as many students as we
have (and) they've got twice as
many athletes to choose from,"
he said. "We're going to line
up, and we're going to play
hard, and try to see the things
that we want to see, but we also
want to be successful in trying
to beat them."
The cache of a cross-county
clash is the reason Maddox is
having his team play Sebring
for the first time since 2002.
"It's still going to be kind of
a rivalry," he said. "They
haven't played for years. We
probably don't have any reason
to be playing them - that
probably wasn't a very good
job of scheduling by me - but
we wanted to renew all the
rivalries here on the ridge, play
Sebring and Avon Park, just to
get the interest in the communi-
ty back up."
Those who do give the
Dragons a look ought to like
what they see, Maddox added.
"Hopefully, we'll go out and
make a good showing, and I
think people are going to be
impressed with how much bet-
ter this football team is than
any that they've had in a
while," he said.
