Rising gas prices call for presidential help


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Soaring gas
prices are hurting everyone and
some United States Senators are
asking for presidential help.
Florida Senator Bill Nelson
is worried about the effects of
these high prices on Florida cit-


izens.
In a letter Friday to President
George W. Bush, Nelson stated
his concerns.
"Consumers from Florida tell
me they are having a hard time
affording the drive to work, the

As people get ol er, and their expenses
mount, they find thi selves living just one
accident or one rert check away from the
street.
That's a problem the Coalition for the
Homeless would like to prevent in Highlands
County. They have applied for an emergency
shelter grant for the homeless and an emer-
gency shelter prevention grant, to prevent
people becoming homeless.
The grant would be administered by the
Continuum of Care, created by Highlands,
DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry and
Okeechobee counties, to prevent people from
losing their homes, said Penny Phillippi,
Highlands County housing coordinator.

One way of preventing homelessness could
be assisted living facilities.

In order to help alleviate
some of the financial strain,
Nelson asked the president to
encourage oil companies to

prices.
Nelson indicated that such a
freeze would assist investiga-
tors in getting to the bottom of
the recent price hike.
"Winning such a concession
would bid time to hold in-depth
federal investigations into
whether any of the oil compa-


nies are fixing prices to boost
profits," Nelson writes.

Counties sign



agreement for



regional road



improvements


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - State Road 70
will get some much needed
improvements soon.
The Florida Department of
Transportation has signed a
regional interlocal agreement
with representatives from six
central Florida counties, to
make sure that and at least two
other priorities get some atten-
tion right away.
For the most part, Lynn
Topel, executive director of
Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative, said this will mean
the addition of turning and
passing lanes between
Okeechobee and U.S. 27, and
possibly into DeSoto County
and beyond.
It's a function of the
Transportation Regional
Incentive Program, which rec-
ognizes how roads that once
only connected small towns
have become major Florida
arteries and need improvement.
State Road 70 is one such
road. Topel said the east-west
corridor connects the heartland
to Sarasota and Manatee coun-
ties on the west coast and
Interstate 95, Florida's
Turnpike, and St. Lucie and
Palm Beach counties on the
east coast.


Once drivers from the east
get into Okeechobee County,
Topel said, road conditions can
make it dangerous.
"This will make it safer," she
said.
Second on the list is U.S. 17
from Zolfo Springs in Hardee
County into DeSoto County
and Charlotte County.
Road widening is already
taking place, which will help
handle hurricane evacuations
and commercial truck traffic.
U.S. 17 became a bottleneck
from Zolfo Springs south to the
DeSoto County line during last
year's hurricane season. Also, a
new Wal-Mart distribution cen-
ter in DeSoto County brings in
12,000 semitrailers each week.
A third priority, Topel said, is
four-laning 23 miles of State
Road 80 from LaBelle east to
U.S. 27. It should improve the
safety on that road, which she
said has seen a lot of wrecks.
"If we get something out of
those top three priorities in this
round, we will be thrilled,"
Topel said.
Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative involves Highlands,
DeSoto, Hardee, Hendry,
Glades, and Okeechobee coun-
ties, along with the towns of
Belle Glade and Pahokee on
Lake Okeechobee.


It's no health food, but research

holds promise for chocolate lovers


By LIBBY QUAID
Associated Press Writer
. WASHINGTON - It's not
'exactly a guilt-free pleasure,,but
food researchers- say cocoa
beans could be good for you.
Dolly Sullivan is a believer.
She eats two or three squares of
Dove dark chocolate daily and
talked her mother into switching
from coffee to Cocoa.
"I'm a chocoholic. I can't walk
by a chocolate store," said
Sullivan, 60, who lives in
Warwick, R.I.. "I've always
enjoyed chocolate, but now I
have a reason to eat it."
The health potential is real.
Cocoa beans have natural com-
pounds called flavanols, and a
growing pile of scientific
research suggests they do good
things to blood vessels.
Customers at Neuhaus, a
Belgian chocolate shop in
Washington's Union Station, like
thinking the dark stuff might be

healthy, said manager
Clementine Loeman.
"That way, they don', feel
guilty," Loeman said. adding thai
chocolate was sometimes con-
sidered medicinal when the com-
pany began as a pharmacy 148
years ago.
Despite the enthusiasm, fla-
vanols are missing from much of
the chocolate on store shelves
today. Flavanols make chocolate
and cocoa taste bitter, and con-
fectioners have spent years try-
ing to perfect ways to remove
the pungent flavor.
"Most chocolate, in fact, isn't
flavanol-rich," said Norm
Hollenberg, a radiology profes-
sor and flavanol expert at
Harvard Medical School. "But all
chocolate is rich in fat and calo-
ries. Chocolate is a delight It can
and should be part of a prudent
diet. That means you limit what
you take."

Sand holes formed from heavy rains in in front of Papa John's at the parking lot in the Sebring Square.
The holes were filled in and marked with cones.


Big sand hole opens in


Sebring Square parking lot


Cracks, breaks in
storm drains can open
holes anywhere
By PHIL ATWINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Patrons visit-
ing stores on the north end of
Sebring Square can relax about
the hole in the pavement: It's
not a sinkhole.
Like other holes in pavement
this year, the one last week
came from sand leaking into a
drainage culvert from under the
asphalt.
On Jan. 1, a hole opened in
the pavement on the access road
around Lakeshore Mall. Then,
on Jan. 3, a hole opened on


Northwest Lakeview Drive.
Both came from storm drain
leaks, not sinkholes.
Howard Hart, property man-
ager for Sebring Square, said
the hole near Papa John's Pizza
is exactly the same problem
Lakeshore Mall had on the
south access road around
Kmart. Whenever the area gets
heavier than normal rains, the
water table rises and sand runs
in through breaks in the
drainage system, taking sand
with it.
Holes have opened in ,that
spot before now, he said. Each
time they are no more than
three or four feet deep. He
planned to get workers to pack
shell into the hole to level it oul.


County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said the county has a
similar problem with a drain-
pipe at the corner of U.S. 27
and Schumacher Road. He's
had crews on the comer by
SunTrust Bank, 3601 U.S. 27
North, to pave over the drop-
ping asphalt to bring it level
with the roadway.
He said such problems stem
from fine, sandy soil and failing
joints on drainpipes, and that
contractors should wrap drain-
pipe joints in fabric to prevent
sand from seeping in. He added
that while builders and
landowners save money by not
doing so, it's a lot more expen-
sive to dig up a pipe and fix it
later.

language arts teacher for 26
years, died Thursday at the age
of 62.
Pipon began teaching in
Highlands County middle
schools in August 1979. She
was selected as the teacher of
the year at Sebring Middle
School and Hill-Gustat Middle,
from which she retired in May.
Her husband, Edward, was a
well-respected principal before
retiring from Sun 'N Lake
Elementary School. The couple
touched countless lives over the
years.
In remembering Janet Pipon
on Friday, friends and former
students spoke softly or through
tears.
"If you're coming to the vis-
itation and funeral service,
you'd better come early,
because it's going to be
crammed," school board mem-
ber Wendy Renfro said. "She
was loved by everyone."
"She was wonderful,"
Connie Scobey, school board
secretary, said. "My girls had
her in middle school, and
they're 30 and 34 now. We've
known her and Ed for years.
Scobey described Pipon as a
"topnotch teacher" who went
"above and beyond" to nurture
and educate her students.
Renfro's daughter,
Katherine, who graduated from
Sebring High School last
spring, is a former student of
Pipon's.
Katherine remembered Pipon
as a teacher who brought out
the best in her students.
"She never judged. She was
always fair," Katherine said. "I
never heard her raise her voice.
It was the highlight of my day
to go to her class."
She particularly recalled
how, one day in class, Pipon
inspired her interest in literature
with a dramatic reading of
E Edgar Allen Poe's classic poem,
"The Raven." Pipon set the
mood by dimming the class-
room lights and placing a large
black bird on a pedestal. For

Janet Pipon


Katherine, it was an eerie but
memorable experience.
Even when Katherine went
on to high school, Pipon contin-
ued to read her essays and cor-
rect them.
Wendy Renfro first met
Pipon at Avon Elementary
School in 1983, when Renfro
was a teacher's aide.
Renfro remembered Pipon as
the rare, outstanding teacher,
who took an interest in her stu-
dents and tried to motivate them
to achieve.
As one example, Renfro said,
Pipon collected her students'
poetry in a book throughout the
school year, then gave a copy to
The School Board of Highlands
County.
"I've got every one, and I've
read them from cover to cover,"
Renfro said.
On Jan. 10, shortly before her
retirement, Pipon wrote a
farewell letter to her students,
which she included in the annu-
al poetry book.
"Reading what students write
is so important in understand-
ing why students behave the
way they do," Pipon advised
them. "Please take the time to
read what your students, sons,
daughters, friends, classmates,
and grandchildren feel and
think." :s.(
Born in Windber, Pa., Pipon
had been a resident of Sebring
since 1978. She was a member


of the Highlands County
Educational Association and a
former member of the Rotary
Anns. She was honored in
Who's Who Among American
Teachers in 2000.
Along with her husband,
Pipon is survived by a son,
Justin, of Atlanta, Ga., a daugh-
ter, Rebecca Brown, of Sebring;
a sister, Harriet Sura of Fort
Collins, Colo.; and four grand-
children.
Visitation will be from 5-7
p.m. Monday at Stephenson-
Nelson Funeral Home and
Chapel, 4001 Sebring Parkway,
in Sebring. A funeral service
will follow at 7 with the Rev.
Russell Lethbridge will be offi-
ciating.

Sebring man facing multiple charges after
found carrying cocaine and marijuana


News-Sun
SEBRING -A Sebring man
who fled on foot after being
approached by sheriff's
deputies early Thursday morn-
ing was apprehended and is
now facing numerous drug-
related charges.
Around 3:05 a.m., deputies
noticed a man later identified as
Keith Lavelle Hicks sitting in a
car in a parking lot on
Highlands Avenue, a report
from the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies who approached
the car allegedly saw the 33-
year-old Hicks trying to con-
ceal items in his possession.
Hicks got out of the car, at
the deputies' request, but then
ran 100 feet before the deputies
tackled him.


Upon being searched by the
deputies, Hicks was found to be
carrying 21 pieces of crack
cocaine in a yellow Optimo
Corona cigar tube, a plastic bag
containing marijuana, a partly
burnt marijuana cigarette and
$274.
Hicks reportedly said the
drugs were for his personal use,
but deputies believed the large
amount of cash he was carrying
suggested he had been selling
them.
He was charged with posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to
sell or deliver, possession of
less than 20 grams of cannabis,
possession of drug parapherna-
lia, and resisting or obstructing
an officer without violence.
Bail was set at $6,500.

SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun


Sheriff Susan Benton spoke to members and guests of the Ivory Club on Thursday about sexual predators.


Benton shares information about sexual predators


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton
brought a myriad of information
about the law and citizen's rights
concerning sexual predators
Thursday evening as she spoke
to members and guests of the
Ivory Club.
The Ivory Club is a nonpoliti-
cal affiliation organized to pro-
vide education forums that
would support and promote the
principles of good government.
Benton's calm and clear inter-
pretations acted as a balm to soft-
en tempers and help redirect the
efforts of parents who had been
informed that a sexual predator
had moved into their neighbor-
hood.
"We don't want to throw our
community into a state of fear
nor do we want our children
housebound because their par-
ents are afraid to let them go to
the playground," Benton said.
When sexual offenders relo-
cate, sheriff's office workers
notify people in the respective
neighborhoods. Benton said that
extends to about a three-mile
radius of the offender's new
home.
Benton defined the fine differ-
ences between a sexual offender
and a sexual predator as being a
designation of the courts based
on the number and severity of
passed convictions. Currently
there are about 100 sex offend-
ers int Highlands County. Only
about four of them are classified
as sexual predators.
'"There is a lot of gray ,area
here. When an 18-year-old is con-
victed of sexual activity with a 17-
year-old that person is listed as a
sexual offender. If a felon has
multiple convictions of a crimes
against a child under 12 years of
age they would be designated as
a predator, that leaves a lot of
gray area in between," Benton
said.
Ivory Club Chairman Steve
Roberts read headlines about
how other communities have
handled the situation, ranging
from Hillsborough County's
actions to post sex offenders pic-
tures in public parks and recre-
ation centers to a recent decision
in Lake County to publish an
insert to the local papers there.
Benton said she was working
with the local papers on such a
publication and was looking for a
funding mechanism for it. She
also pointed out that schools
have pertinent information and
updates and that the latest infor-
mation is available on the
Internet as well as in a loose leaf


binder kept for the public at the
front desk of the sheriff's office.
Highlands County school
board member Richard Norris,
who was in attendance at the ses-
sion, told the group that the
school system was struggling
with similar problems under the
new Jessica Lundsford Act.
"We have to pay for back-
ground checks for any volunteer
or vendor who comes on school
grounds, and we are being told
that could cost the school board
as much a $90 per background
check," he said.
Benton said the sheriff's
office would be able to do the
background checks free of
charge. However, she was uncer-
tain of what the law allowed them
to distribute to the school board.
It was not until recently that
the department has been able to
do background checks for the
Division of Children and Family
Services.
"Before the new law, when
DCF workers had to remove a
child from a home at two in the
morning and place them in the
home of a friend or relative, they
would have no way of doing a
background check on the family
in which they were entrusting
the child," Benton said.
DCF workers are now able to
call the sheriff's department at
anytime, day or night, and have
them run a background check
on the perspective guardians.


The response to a question
from the audience concerning
whether sexual offenders were
worse than murderers sent a
chill over all those who attended
the meeting.
"A murder is usually a one
time event involving someone
who they are familiar with. A sex-
ual predator may have as many
as 125 victims before they are
caught," she said.
Benton further reminded the
group that predators are not lim-
ited to the male gender. There
also are many female predators.
She also said they generally
operate within their own neigh-
borhood, which is why her office
goes to extensive measure to
inform parents and schools if a
predator has moved into their
area.
The sheriff also emphasized
the department's ongoing educa-
tional program to educate par-
ents and children about how sex-
ual offenders operate and how to
escape them.
"We teach children how to do
a 'crab walk' to get away from a
predator or how to kick and
scream if someone has thrown
them over their shoulder," she
said.
Several members of the audi-
ence offered to help schedule or
arrange programs that would be
open to the public.
Benton urged anyone interest-
ed in the program to contact the


sheriff's office.
"While the sheriff's office con-
tinues to work, it is the citizenry
who is the front line of defense; it
is the eyes and ears of the com-
munity that make a difference,"
she said.
Benton encouraged anyone
who sees someone acting suspi-
ciously in the neighborhood of
children to call the sheriff's
office. The office has a proce-
dure that can handle the situa-
tion without causing a spectacle.
The Ivory Club meetings have
been moved to the third
Thursday of each month. It is
held at the Homer's Restaurant
at the Sebring Square Shopping
Plaza. Dinner for those who wish
to eat will be at 5 p.m.

AQABA, Jordan - Attackers
firing Katyusha rockets narrowly
missed a U.S. amphibious
assault ship docked at this Red
Sea resort Friday, but killed a
Jordanian soldier in the most
serious strike at the Navy since
the USS Cole bombing nearly
five years ago.
Two more rockets were shot
toward nearby Israel without
causing serious damage.
Jordanian security forces
hunted for at least six Egyptian,
Syrian and Iraqi suspects, and an
al-Qaida-linked group that previ-
ously claimed responsibility for
terror bombings in three
Egyptian resorts said it staged
the attack here.
The string of attacks over 10
months has raised fears Islamic
extremists are opening a new
arena of combat in Egypt's Sinai
Peninsula and the Gulf of Aqaba,
an area bordered by Israel,
Egypt and Jordan that is known
for carefree tourist resorts and
Arab-Israeli peace talks.
In addition to striking U.S. tar-
gets, some extremist Muslims
would like to topple the govern-
ments of Jordan and Egypt,
which are longtime allies of
Washington and also have peace
treaties with Israel.

Brigades, a militant group that
claimed to be behind bombings
which killed at least 64 people at
Sharm el-Sheik in July and 34
people at two other Egyptian
resorts last October, posted a
statement on the Internet saying
its fighters fired the rockets
Friday.
"A group of our holy warriors
... targeted a gathering of
American military ships docking
in Aqaba port," said the state-
ment, which also threatened to
bring down King Abdullah II of
Jordan.
One rocket sailed over the
bow of the USS Ashland about
8:44 a.m., Lt. Cmdr. Charlie
Brown, a spokesman for the U.S.
5th Fleet in Bahrain, told The
Associated Press.
The missile hit a nearby
Jordanian military warehouse
that U.S. forces use to store
goods bound for Iraq, Jordanian
officials said. The blast killed
one Jordanian soldier and
wounded another, the state Petra
news agency reported. No
Americans were injured.
Brown said the Ashland had
docked on Aug. 13 with the heli-
copter carrier USS Kearsarge at
Aqaba's port, south of the city,
for joint exercises with Jordan's
military. Both vessels left after
the attack as a precaution, he
said.

Archive receives collection of Lockett photos, memorabilia


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Family of
Edna Pearce Lockett recently
donated a collection of photo-
graphs and memorabilia from
the Lockett Estate to the Sebring
Historical Society Archive.
The collection also includes
newspaper clippings, plaques,
documents and other recogni-
tions.
John M. Pearce, the eldest
child of Levi and Mary Jane
(Hooker) Pearce, was born Nov.
17, 1834, in Columbia County. He
settled with his parents in Peace


River Valley in 1846.
In 1858, he married Martha
Lanier, a descendent of Sidney
Lanier, the poet. He continued
his cattle operations and moved
his family to the Kissimmee
River settling at Fort Basinger,
on the western side of the river.
Hie was a licensed ferry opera-
tor and the last owner of the
steamboat Mary Belle, which
carried supplies and passengers
along the river until it sank dur-
ing the mid 1800s.
His son, William Sidney
Pearce, continued in the cattle
business and built the first


bridge across the Kissimmee
River from Fort Basinger to
Basinger in 1916.
A photograph of bricks from
the fireplace of the first home of
Sidney and Millie in 1895 is an
interesting addition. Their home
was known as "The Whitehouse
Place."
The photograph of the Pearce
home by the Kissimmee River,
where the daughter of W.S
Pearce, Edna Pearce Lockc
spent most of her 82 years,
reveals a small section of the
Pearce Family Cemetery. The
cemetery was enclosed with a

One of the old Hendricks Field warehouse (above) used during World War II has been torn down at the
Sebring Airport to make way for the new building (below) under construction for E Stone.


Hendricks Field removed


to make room for E Stone


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Another land-
mark at Hendricks Field will
soon be removed. Progress,
commerce and modernization
have almost erased all vestiges of
Hendricks Field; those who
worked and/or lived there are
handling mixed emotions as they
appreciate the changes and miss
the old layout. Warehouse # 901
was the first of six warehouses
built at Hendricks Field in 1942
and will be the last of the series
to go.
Warehouses #'s 1,2, & 3 were
used as Base headquarters for
an Air Force Flight Training
Center known as Hendricks
Field; # 5 was the Air Corps
Supply center and # 6 lay on the
other side of the RR Track. Base
headquarters were located near
the Circle until offices were built
at the Field.
Warehouse # 109 was occu-
pied for many years by Nichol's
Bronzing. Owner, Dallas
Nichols, retired over eight years
ago and his son Dallas, Jr. has
been operating Custom Marble
of Florida in the same location..
The largest building of
."Hendricks Field", the old Main
Hanger, has been restored and
remains in use. The Control
Tower was also restored and
moved to a different location.
Many former Hendricks Field
barracks and other Field build-
.ings are scattered about the City
of Sebring. These sturdy build-
ings have been modernized,
redesigned, and enlarged so
much that they are hardly recog-
nizable as "army issue". (Expect
more about those later.)
The new building under con-
struction for E' Stone on the left
side of Haywood Taylor


Boulevard entering the commer- lar building and perhaps a small-
cial area of the Airport is a mas- er one." They expect to employ-
sive structure; One hundred ee 150 people and be operational

dred fifty- feet long! Mike Tizler pany will be manufacturing gran-
said there may be another "simi- ite counter tops.

Several other relatives and
neighbors are interred in the

One photograph is a copy of
the plaque of the bridge across
the Kissimmee River that W.S.
Pearce had constructed in 1916
by the Champion Bridge Co. of
Wilmington, Ohio.
The newspaper clippings

Warren, Lawton Childs and
Claude Pepper as well as with
the Queen Mary in England.
A copy of the beautiful
announcement of the Aug. 23,
1953, wedding of William James
Lockett and Edna Mae Pearce is
among, the six pages of invita-
tions to gala events. Even the
Lockett Coat of Arms is included
in the wedding collection.
Five plaques to honor Mrs.
Lockett reveal: Trustee of
Florida Southern College; Life

Highlands General Hospital
Recognition 1962 to 1970;
University of South Florida in
Tampa, Distinguished Service;
and Florida Southern University

Wrapping up the tour of this
fine collection are two Indian
ladies dressed in beautiful
Seminole attire!
Resolution 1035 from the State
of Florida Representatives, pre-
sented by Representative Bert
Harris to Mrs. Lockett in May
1983, states that she was the
third woman to be elected to the
Florida House of Represent-
atives. The document has six
"Whereas statements" which
include:
1. Third woman to serve in

Liberty Christian Academy


moves to Sebring church


School finds new
home at Sebring
Church of the
Nazarene
SEBRING - After two
years of looking for a new
home, Liberty Christian
Academy has found one at
Sebring Church of the
Nazarene.
The 3-year-old school is
moving to the church's educa-
tion wing on South Commerce
Avenue, two blocks from the
Circle.
The new location offers more
space than the previous facili-


ties in Avon Park and, school
administrators believe, the
opportunity to serve more stu-
dents:.
The school's mission is pro-
viding children with a Christ-
centered education., The staff
takes responsibility for instill-
ing students with family values
and moral character so that they
will be prepared to make right
decisions and serve the commu-
nity.
The primary curriculum used
is known as A Beka, which is
published by A Beka Books, an
affiliate of Pensacola Christian
College. This curriculum is
supplemented by another
known as ACE. which meets


the needs of those who are not
quite ready to meet the chal-
lenging demands of the primary
curriculum.
This latter curriculum allows
students to be tested to establish
their level of academic profi-
ciency. and then allows them to
progress at their own pace.
The school attempts to make
tuition affordable and provides
three different types of scholar-
ships - McKay, Florida Pride
and Opportunity Schools.
The school is a member of
the Association of Christian
Schools International. ACSI is
recognized worldwide in col-
leges and universities.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to

W-9


with sexual assault
Associated Press
WEST PALM BEACH -- A
youth care worker at a maxi-
mum-security prison for girls
was arrested after admitting he
had sex with a 15-year-old
inmate in her cell, authorities
said.
William Lane, 44, was
charged with sexual assault on
a child by a custodian because
of the early morning encounter
on July 27.
The arrest comes just two
weeks before the institute is
scheduled to be closed.
Officials had hoped it would
become a model for rehabilitat-
ing the state's most troubled
teenage girls, but its five years
of operation have been marked
by allegations of violence,
abuse and a grand jury investi-
gation.
Two guards have previously
pleaded guilty to criminal sexu-
al misconduct with girls. At
least four girls suffered broken
arms while being restrained by
guards, and some girls were
arrested for attacking prison
staff.

Curves for Women in

Woman dies from
flesh-eating bacteria
Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE - A 45-
year-old Jacksonville woman
has died from flesh-eating bac-
teria that she contracted while
riding a personal watercraft on
the St. Johns River, officials
said.
Candace Scott died Aug. 3,
Duval County health officials
said.
One to three cases of flesh-
eating bacteria are typically
reported in the county each
year, but deaths are rare, said
Tim Lawther, director of
chronic disease and prevention
for the county's health depart-
ment.
The bacteria that caused
Scott's fatal infection typically
enters the body through an
open wound and absorbs into
the bloodstream, Lawther said.
Scott's brother, Bill, said she
had cut her leg the day she was
at the river.
The bacteria, vibrio vulnifi-
cus, triggered an infection
known as necrotizing fasciitis,
which destroys muscles, fat,
and skin tissue. The bacteria is
similar to one the public is
warned about when eating raw
or undercooked shellfish,
health officials said.
.The infection takes its great-
est toll on people with weak-
ened immune systems or
chronic illnesses such as dia-
betes, cancer, liver or kidney
disease. Scott was recently
diagnosed with diabetes.
Lawther said people who
don't heal well from wounds
are being advised to stay out of
the water.


women can go through one cir-
cuit of a Curves workout with a
trainer when they donate $5 at
any Curves location in
Highlands County.
For every woman who joins
Curves as a result of the promo-
tion, owners Kathie Lawens
and Judy McCoomb will donate
$20 to St. Jude Hospital.
For details and registration
information, call Curves in
Avon Park at 452-9963, in Lake
Placid at 699-9009, in north
Sebring at 385-1070 and in
south Sebring at 402-0455.
The money raised will be
used to assist children with can-
cer and other life-threatening
diseases.
The Memphis, Tenn.-based
hospital was founded by the
entertainer Danny Thomas for
the purpose of providing med-
ical care to sick children and


finding cures to childhood ill-
ness.
No family pays for treatment
not covered by insurance.
Those without insurance
receive free care.
St. Jude freely shares its dis-
covers with scientific and med-
ical communities around the
world.
It is financially supported by
ALSAC, its fund-raising organ-
ization.
Since the hospital opened in
1962. some strides have been
seeing in treating childhood
diseases. For example, 40 years
ago, the survival rate for chil-
dren who contracted acute lym-
phoblastic leukemia - the most
common form of childhood
leukemia - was only 4 percent.
Today, that rate is 85 percent.

Robbers get life
for shooting
security guards
Associated Press
FORT LAUDERDALE -
Two men have been sen-
tenced to life in prison for
shooting two security guards
in a failed attempt to rob an
armored car.
Lowen Espinueva cried
during a Friday hearing and
said he never meant to hurt
anyone when he and Jermaine
Williams raided the armored
car as the guards refilled an
ATM at a Coral Springs
Citibank in October 2000.
Both guards, Eisham Ruiz
of Hialeah and Frank Granja
of Miami, survived after suf-
fering serious wounds from
the blast from a 12-gauge
shotgun.
Espinueva's attorney,
Lewis Midler, had asked for
the minimum allowed by law,
a 25-year sentence.
"Lowen's in absolute
shock, he was genuinely
remorseful," Midler said.
Espinueva, 24, and'
Williams, 25, had been
charged with attempted mur-
der and attempted robbery.
Attorneys said they plan to
appeal both sentences.

Miami drug
agents launch
air assault to
take home
Associated Press
HOMESTEAD - A
$750,000 home behind
fortress-like walls was seized
Friday by heavily armed fed-
eral agents dropped in by hel-
icopters.
It turned out that no one
was in the home, which had
been ordered forfeited to the
government in a drug case.
The home had belonged to
Yoel Tirado, 33, who is serv-
ing a 15-year prison term
after being convicted in a
local narcotics organization
busted by an Immigration and
Customs Enforcement investi-
gation launched in February
2004.
The seized property had
been purchased through ille-
gal drug profits, federal offi-
cials said.
The home had been occu-
pied for months by individu-
als claiming no association to


Tirado, officials said. ICE
agents tried several times to
evict them, but residents forti-
fied the property to prevent
entry.
The investigation into the
drug organization has led to
the seizure of eight properties
valued at more than $2 mil-
lion, three Hummers and an
excess of $620,000 in cash,
ICE officials said.

Man gets 22
years for

DAYTONA BEACH - A
man was sentenced to 22
years in state prison Friday
for killing his girlfriend's
infant son.
Circuit Judge R. Michael

don't remember it."
The infant died of a single
blow to his skull, Volusia

Thomas Beaver testified.
The 22 years is about eight
years less than the maximum
term, the Orlando Sentinel

Internet-based system will help teacher's
track student achievement and share
information to improve learning


By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press Writer
Florida and Microsoft Corp.
on Friday launched the first
phase of a cutting-edge
Internet-based system that will
give the state's teachers a new
way to track student achieve-
ment and share information on
how to improve learning.
Gov. Jeb Bush joined state
and local education leaders at
Bay County's Mosley High
School in Lynn Haven to unveil
"Sunshine Connections." Bay
County, which includes Panama
City, was the first to activate the
system. It is expected to be in
all Florida schools by 2009.
"This pioneering approach
will free teachers of burden-
some paperwork, allowing
them to focus on teaching,"
Bush said in a news release.
Teachers will be able to use
their desktop computers to fol-


low students' progress on the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test, or FCAT,
from grade to grade even if they
move from one school district
to another.
A teacher then will be able
focus on areas where individual
students, or an entire class, may
need more attention, said
Anthony Salcito, general man-
ager of Microsoft Education,
who also was on hand for the
unveiling.
"Without the data the teacher
has to kind of move forward,
and some kids will continue to
be lost and left behind," Salcito
said in a telephone interview.
"Now, with the data, the teacher
can take proactive steps to real-
ly make sure that no child is left
behind."
The federal No Child Left
Behind law is one reason why
Microsoft plans to spend $6


million on "Sunshine
Connections." The Redmond,
Wash.-based software giant
hopes the system, which relies
heavily on Microsoft products,
will serve as a model for other
states, Salcito said.
"This is something that a lot
of states are certainly working
towards because of No Child
Left Behind and the need to
have a high degree of accounta-
bility with regards to student
achievement," he said.
No Child Left Behind orders
schools to ensure all children
achieve regardless of race, eth-
nicity or income, requires that
they make "adequate yearly
progress" in annual testing and
penalizes schools that fall short.
It also requires students to reach
state standards in reading and
math by 2014 and gives parents
more school choice options.
Sunshine Connections is
expected to expand within
months to Duval, Miami-Dade,
Baker, Bradford, Columbia,
Dixie, Flagler, Gilchrist,
Lafayette, Levy, Nassau,
Putnam, Suwannee and Union


counties.
The system also eventually
will allow teachers to tap into a
central repository containing
curricular materials and let
them exchange information
with other educators around the
state.
Salcito said Sunshine
Connections is designed to
compliment, not replace, exist-
ing systems school districts
already may have in place to
track student achievement.
Mosley math teacher
Michelle Gainer demonstrated
the system for Bush and the
other officials.
"The secure login allows me
to analyze my students' areas of
weakness based on the previous
year's FCAT results," Gainer
said. "Much like a doctor ana-
lyzing patients before treating
them, I can analyze my stu-
dents' needs before teaching
them."

Former boyfriend arrested in death of missing woman

whose remains were found near Philadelphia


Stephen Poaches
was carrying pistol
and wearing
bulletproof vest
when nabbed by
police
Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA - Police
have recovered the remains of a
missing 24-year-old pregnant
woman and arrested the father
of the unborn child on murder
charges, authorities announced
Saturday.


The suspect, Stephen
Poaches, is a former boyfriend
of 24-year-old LaToyia
Figueroa, who has been missing
for a month. When Poaches, 25,
was arrested in nearby Chester,
police said he was wearing a
bulletproof vest and carrying a
pistol.
LaToyia Figueroa's father,
Melvin Figueroa, said he was
relieved that an arrest had been
made.
"Now she can rest in peace,"
he said. "All I want is justice
with that peace."


Figueroa, who was five
months' pregnant when she dis-
appeared and already the moth-
er of a young girl, was last seen
on the afternoon of July 18 in
West Philadelphia.
The remains were recovered
in a grassy, partially wooded lot
near homes and a road in
Chester. The area was cordoned
off by yellow police tape
Saturday morning.
A few dozen members of the
Figueroa family and supporters
arrived at the scene shortly after
daybreak, clustering close to


the police tape and embracing
each other.
"Our hearts our broken ... we
just want to spend some time
here and take a look at this
place where LaToyia unfairly
was murdered," said a cousin of
Figueroa, Philadelphia City
Councilman Juan Ramos.
Relatives and friends, who
have papered the city with fly-
ers and held large-scale search-
es for any sign of Figueroa, had
just marked the one-month
anniversary of her disappear-
ance. A reward fund for infor-
mation had reached $100,000.

DEA breaks up
By SUZANNE GAMBOA
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Drug enforcement
agents have arrested some 160 people in four
U.S. cities and two countries and have broken
up three major drug transportation rings with
international ties in a 10-month drug-traffick-
ing sting revealed Friday.
The Drug Enforcement Administration said
the people arrested were involved in 27 U.S.
distribution groups that have moved enough
methamphetamine into the United States to
have provided the drug to more than 22,700
users a month.
Arrests in the sting - dubbed Operation
Three Hour Tour by the Drug Enforcement
Administration - were made Thursday in Los


LIVING
Continued from 1A
Anthony Lomonico said some
clients were living in their cars
because they couldn't handle
the red tape to secure their
financial benefits. An assisted
living facility can take people in
and help them get those bene-
fits.
He and Hearin try to keep
costs low so people can afford
to stay there and the facility can
subsidize some residents. Still,
it costs $875 per month to pro-
vide a room and three meals
each day, Hearin said.
Transportation costs are going
up, too.
She and Lomonico hope to
save money with solar-heated
water and perhaps increasing
permanent residents from 35 to
40, to help offset costs.
It can be very hard for some-


drug pipelines
Angeles, New York, New Haven, Conn., Des
Moines, Iowa, the Dominican Republican and
Colombia. Other federal, state and local law
enforcement agencies also participated in the
sting. More arrests could occur, the DEA said.
"The streets from Bogota to Los Angeles
are no longer a free trade zone for the crimi-
nals arrested today," DEA Administrator
Karen Tandy said in a statement
The three Mexican and Colombian drug
transportation organizations and their U.S.
counterparts smuggled and distributed 4,000
pounds of cocaine, 20 to 30 pounds of heroin
and more than 50 pounds of merhampheta-
mine monthly throughout this country, the
DEA said.

control of finances because
doctor's visits, prescription
bills and other daily expenses
eat up their reserves, Lomonico
said. Such people have paid
their dues and their taxes, but
now they can't pay rent.
"When you had everything,
and now you lost it, you lose
your senses," Hearin said.
Elders begin to wander.
Children have to take care of
them, but can't be there all day.
They have to work and make a
living, Lomonico said. An
assisted living facility can take
in elders permanently or just
during the day. By taking care
of parents during the day, adult
children don't get run down and
will get more quality time with
them.

said.
People under the Baker Act
are believed mentally ill and
may need to be involuntarily

grant through the homeless
coalition to help provide a serv-
ice for people, such as wander-
ers bracelets or a lock-down
unit.
Lomonico said one difficult
aspect of elder Baker Act cases
is that changes in medication
and body chemistry change
people's moods and responses.

ees and customers shaken.
A female customer, who
wished to remain anonymous

the incident and was shocked.
"All I wanted to do was cash

can't believe this happened."
Police are still seeking the
motorist who dropped off the

Truck wheels can still roll



for 11 hours at a time


By LESLIE MILLER
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Truckers
can still spend six days on the
road during the week and drive
for 11 hours at a time, thanks to
a rule the Bush administration
decided to leave intact even
though truckers and safety advo-
cates say it's unsafe.
For 60 years, truckers could
drive for 10 consecutive hours.
On Jan. 1, 2004, the Federal
Motor Carrier . Safety
Administration changed the rule
to allow them another hour
behind the wheel.
A federal court, however,
threw out the changes.
On Friday, the truck-safety
agency announced that a revi-
sion to the rule would still allow
the big rigs to roll for 11 hours,
three hours more than safety
advocates say they should.
"What reasonable person who
has traveled our nation's roads
and highways thinks that forcing
tired truck drivers to stay behind
the wheel even longer is good
public policy?" asked Teamsters
Union President James P. Hoffa.
More than a year ago, a feder-
al court struck down the rule,


GAS
Continued from 1A
again "step up to the plate" and
do the right thing by temporari-
ly freezing gas prices.
In the event Bush cannot per-
suade oil companies to freeze
their prices, his party could suf-
fer.
In 1980 public outcry over
gas prices played a large part in
President Jimmy Carter's lost
re-election bid.
Some critics predict that cur-
rent gas prices may hurt some
Republican politicians in the
2006 mid-term elections.
Another concern for con-
sumers is the "pass along
effect."
If gas prices continue to rise,


saying it was "arbitrary and
capricious" and failed to consider
truckers' health. The Bush
administration was left to revise
it.
Annette Sandberg, chief of the
truck-safety agency, said the new
rule is backed by more research
and was designed to reduce the
number of crashes caused by
fatigued drivers.
"The research shows that this
pew rule will improve driver
health and safety and the safety
of our roadways," Sandberg said
during a press conference.
She said the rule requires
drivers to take at least 10 hours
off between shifts, two more
than before, and reduces the
maximum work day from 15
hours to 14.
Joan Claybrook, president of
the safety group Public Citizen,
said that drivers can drive 20 per-
cent longer and spend 30 percent
more time on duty under the
new rule.
She said the agency's own
data show that deaths resulting
from large truck crashes are up
3.1 percent from 2003 to 2004.
The Bush administration also
announced a new set of rules for


the cost of other commodities
will continue to rise with it.
The cost of transporting
goods has already begun to cut
deeper into business' bottom
line and they have no choice but
to pass that cost along to con-
sumers.
There are a few things you
can do yourself to save money,
at least at the pumps.
According to www. autoedu-
cation.com you can improve
your gas mileage with proper
vehicle maintenance.
By monitoring your tires you
can cut back on the amount of
fuel you use. Under-inflated
tires or poorly aligned wheels
waste fuel by forcing the engine
to work harder.
Make sure you have your
vehicle serviced regularly to


truck drivers who travel less
than 150 miles in a day and don't
need a commercial driver's
license.
Those drivers, who typically
work for retailers and small
package-delivery companies,
would be partially exempt from
the 14-hour workday. For two
days a week, they could work 16-
hour days, including breaks.
Wal-Mart and other retailers
have lobbied Congress to extend
the workday for truckers to 16
hours, something labor unions
and safety advocates say would
make roadways more dangerous
for all drivers.
Some members of Congress
had a similar proposal, but the
legislation was withdrawn in
March when safety advocates
and unions representing truck-
ers opposed it.
Sandberg said it makes sense
to let short-haul drivers work
longer because they're 18 times
less likely to be involved in a
crash caused by fatigue than
long-haul drivers.
Sleepy drivers cause only 5.5
percent of all truck crashes, she
said.


increase your engine's efficien-
cy.
You can also cut back on fuel
consumption by obeying the
speed limit since speeding
decreases your miles per gallon.
Other ways to conserve fuel
are by car pooling with a friend
or consolidating all your
errands so you don't have to
make multiple trips.
You may not be able to con-
trol gas prices but you can cer-
tainly control how fast you use
it. Monitor your gas consump-
tion and you may well find
yourself saving monv ynow and
in the future.

TUFFIN9 IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Did he say
spitting demons?
I didn't know what to
expect this week when I
reported to Transcription
Solutions of Sebring, a med-
ical transcriptions company.
I didn't even know what it
is medical transcriptionists do.
I thought it might have to
do with insurance billing, and
I thought it would be dull.
Of course I was wrong.
It turns out being a medical
transcriptionist has a lot to be
said for it.
You can make decent
money for one thing, and the
job has special attractions.
For example, you work in
your home, which means with-
in reach of the refrigerator.
You can wear pajamas, and
go barefoot. In fact, it turns
out it's best if you work bare-
foot, because there is a foot
pedal to control the sound.
So right away, this job is
enticing.
But right away you know
there must be a catch.
There is. You have to work
hard, and to a high standard.
Let me explain.
At the end of every patient
visit, either at the time, or at
the end of day while reviewing
files, doctors will record infor-
mation.
This information, relating to
patient statements, test results,
the doctor's opinions, treat-
ments taken, and medication
prescribed, as well as follow
up recommendations, and sug-
gestions for future visits or

Medical Transcriptionist



Medical transcribing industry takes off


Advance in technology
and aging population
spur growth in service
support field
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING
Transcribing medical records is a field
which has been profoundly affected by
modern technology.
Doctors have always kept detailed
notes of a patient's symptoms and treat-
ments, which are used to provide conti-
nuity of care.
What has changed is how doctors now
record those notes.
More and more are using digitized
recorders, which they speak into like a
traditional tape recorder. But the
recorder can be plugged directly into a
computer, encoded for privacy, and
transmitted to a work station, where an
individual, working with software
designed expressly for the task, can
download the doctor's verbal notes onto
an audio system, complete with foot
pedals to play or fast forward or rewind.
One can use headphones, or if alone,
listen out loud. Privacy is a key issue and
taken seriously.
The transcriptionist types a verbatim
hard copy of whatever the doctor said,
which is stored and sent beck to the prac-
tice, hospital or lab, a paper copy of
which is added to the patient's record.
Because of the technical break-
throughs, medical transcribing can be
done by individuals working at home,
sometimes thousands of miles away
from where the doctors are practicing.
Tony Quails, who with his wife,
Melissa, founded Transcription
Solutions of Sebring in 1998, reports he
has people working for him who live as
far away as Tampa or Las Vegas.
It is definitely a wave of the future,
Qualls says.
He began the company at the urging


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Joyce Edward (standing) and Melissa Qualls work as medical transcriptionists for
Transcription Solutions of Sebring. Quails and her husband, Tony Qualls, started the
company in 1998. Transcriptionists work from their homes and are paid by how many
lines they type. .


of administrators at Florida Hospital,
who needed help in transcribing doctor's
notes. Qualls directed information tech-
nology for the hospital at the time.
As the baby boomers age, he says,
there will be more and more people
making doctor's visits, and more and
more records to transcribe.
He started the company with only five
employees, and now only seven years
later, he has a staff of 32.
Qualls is not afraid to think big. He
hopes to take on accounts from hospitals
and private practices throughout the
eastern United States, and become a
major employer in the region.
Becoming a medical transcriptionist
requires training beyond high school. As
it happens South Florida Community
College offers a course in this skill.
Typically transcriptionists are paid by
the line. The rate varies, but usually is
about seven or eight cents. At
Transcription Solutions a line is counted
for every 65 characters.
Most transcriptionists can type 1,000
to 1,200 lines in a day, some can do over
2,000. But Qualls warns that's not often
in the beginning, it takes at least six
months for most people to get a handle
on the work..
Supervisors normally routing the jobs
so the transcriptionist only has to log on
to the system.
Having a working medical vocabulary
is essential, as are strong typing skills
and a good understanding of computer
systems and software. "The information
comes in through the ears, and out
through the fingers," Melissa Qualls
said, and added, "it takes discipline
because you are at home, and it's easy to
become too relaxed."

Chef Buddy's Italian American Deli opens


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - Whet
your appetite for Lake Placid's
newest Italian treat. Chef
Buddy Careri brings such expe-
rience and flair to food that
your taste buds will never be
the same.
After graduating from
Jamaica High School on Long
Island, N.Y., attending the
Culinary Institute in Manhattan,
Careri spent four months
apprenticing in Rome, Naples,
and Venice, Italy. Upon his
return to the New York, he was
the sous (second) chef at the
prestigious Waldorf Astoria, the


Garden City Hotel and the
Salisbury Country Club. Then
he was executive chef at
Huntington Town House where
he applied his culinary skills for
27 years. In 1968, he moved to
Florida and worked at the four-
star Sea Inn at Hollandale, the
Hearth Pub at Plantation, and
was executive chef for 18 years
at Dania's Jai'alai.
Five years ago, he and his
wife, Kim, bought a house at
Lake Clay and worked week-
ends fixing it up. A year ago
they moved here permanently
and recently opened Chef
Buddy's Italian American Deli.
"I like creating new salad

recipes with exciting new styles
and flavors," Careri said. "I'm
also a butcher and make my
own sausage. I bone out the
pork butts and trim the fat off. I
make it in the traditional Italian
style which is 100 percent pork,
and no fillers."
Careri offers fresh black
angus beef cut to order, filet
mignon, New York strip, rib
eyes, and other fresh cut meats.
It is not a restaurant, but a deli
because it falls under the
Florida Agricultural
Department category of deli,
meat, sandwich shop and gro-
ceries. It has a counter for sand-
wiches and customers can use
the outdoor seating, but there's
no waitress like in a traditional
restaurant setting.
Sandwiches are $4.95 to
$6.95. Toppings on their subs
include melted provolone, moz-
zarella, roast peppers, peppers
and onions.
Buddy's Special has import-
ed provolone, ham, salami, cap-
picola, roast peppers, lettuce,
tomato, olives, and special
dressing.
Salads are takeout and run
$3.50 for the small and $7 for
the larger. The deli offers a tuna
platter, Caesar, Greek, antipas-
to, chef and gorgonzola.
Customers can order pizza
whole or by the slice.
If a person has a sweet tooth,
try a satisfying canola or
tiramisu. A colorful and special

canned grocery section awaits a
person with imported olive oils
and vinegars, pesto, olives,
anchovies, peppers, and arti-
chokes.
Careri offers imported salami
for $15 to $16 a pound and
imported cheeses for $8 to $9 a


pound, with ricotta salata for
$8.99 a pound.
"There's gorgonzola, pro-
volone, locatelli, and the
Cadillac of grated cheese:
Reggiano parmigiano for
$15.25 a pound," Careri said.
"Come and try us. Mangia


(eat)."
Chef Buddy's Italian
American Deli is at 204 North
Main Ave. Hours are from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday. Call 465-6800 or e-
mail chefbuddys@yahoo.com.


TUFFLEY
Continued from 13A
referrals, is made a part of the
patient's official record. That
record is what medical care-
givers will refer to while treat-
ing the patient.
It is critical, therefore, that
the individual transcribing the
doctor's verbal notes, get the
words completely right, all of
the time.
This job has no room for
error.
Which is a special challenge
considering the circumstances.
Sitting down and reviewing a
pile of medical records, while
recording comments on each
one, is a tedious, time-consum-
ing task for doctors who make
notes at the end of the day.
Doctors who record their
comments between consulta-
tions are often rushed. Either
way, most of the time, the med-
ical transcriptionist is listening
to voices that are talking very
fast; and in a range of accents
that stretch from the almost
understandable to the incom-
prehensible.
A taped note that took a doc-
tor 57 seconds to say, can take a
transcriptionist 25 minutes to
type.
I know because I was the
transcriptionist that typed that
particular piece.
Yes, it's true, a real transcrip-
tionist could have done it in 10
minutes, maybe even less, but it
would still take much longer to
write than to say.
And you're tense the whole
time, because the clock is tick-
ing, and you have a certain
amount of work you have to get
done - I forgot .to mention,
there are serious deadlines
involved, some quite short.
But you're also tense because
you want to hear the doctor cor-


rectly the first time, and that's
not easy - especially when
he's rattling off words like aus-
cultation, or cardiac isoen-
zymes.
Typing skills are almost sec-
ondary when working as a tran-
scriptionist, although of course
they are essential. ,
More important is to have a
solid grounding in medical
vocabulary, especially the pre-
fixes and suffixes. For example,
when you see the suffix "itis" in
a word, like arthritis, you know
it refers to some kind of inflam-
mation.
* This i's -important, because
the rpwre familiar a transcrip-
tionistis with the words a doc-
tor uses, the more what the doc-
tor says will make sense. The


better the understanding, in
other words, the fewer the mis-
takes.
And mistakes abound, by
doctors as well as transcribers.
So many in fact that there are
Web sites listing some of the
best examples. Just type med-
ical transcription bloopers into
Google for a list.
For example, from Jim's
Joke Repository: There was the
doctor who said - the patient
reports a fatal reaction to iodine
in the past.
And the doctor who said -
allergic to morphine, valium
and her relatives.
Or the transcriptionist who
wrote - the patient had two
pus-spitting demons around the
ankles.


When what the doctor said
was - the patient had 2-plus
pitting edema around the ankle.
As for me. Between typos
and stopping at every other
word to ask, "What did he say?"
I figure I'm better off where I'm
at. Even if it means I can't wear
my Florida Marlins pajamas to
work.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley gets to dream about the
perfect vacation, working at
Hometown Travel. Any business

Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Jan. 30, 1964.

Healthy and consistent
growth is evident in a review of
the school program of 1963,
said, Andrew Miracle,
- Superintendent ' "- Public
Instruction.....


The gen-
eral level of
education in
the county is
moving up.
The quality
of instruc-
tion is


improving
and the
schools are
showing advancement in all
areas," Miracle reported. As a
major "problem area" he noted
that the building program - even
after years of effort - is still lag-
ging behind needs.
The Superintendent pointed
out that in the present teachers
are facing two tremendous chal-
lenges - the "explosion of
knowledge" and "very rapid
growth of school population."
Visitors to the Highlands
County School Science Fair
(held in conjunction with the
county) fair were heard to
remark, "I don't understand
these exhibits. We didn't study
anything like that when I was in
school."
And the fair visitors are not
victims of faulty memories.
Knowledge is growing very
quickly and the school teachers
must not only learn the new
facts but find new ways to
teach.
In 1963, as usual, Highlands
County made local classes
available to teachers. A course
is now in progress in Sebring
for science teachers. This
course is sponsored by the
National Science Foundation.
More than two dozen teachers
(some for as far away as
Leesburg) are attending the
class; all science teachers in this
course are enrolled.
Teachers at Fred Wild,
DeSoto City and Woodlawn
Schools in Sebring are carrying
on a study of Science Research
Associates approach to teach-
ing of mathematics in the ele-
mentary school.
Fifty members of the instruc-
tional staff of the county are
involved in a course on more
modern trends in elementary
teaching. Before the current
school year opened 66 teachers
of Hopewell, E.O. Douglas and
Carver schools participated in a
workshop centered around
school evaluations.
In the first three months of
1963, a course in elementary art

was conducted in Avon Park
under the direction of the
Florida Institute for Continuing
University Studies. More than
two dozen of the county's
teachers participated in that
class.
Approximately 200 teachers
participated in professional
development programs during
the year and about 100 are cur-
rently enrolled in some formal
class work toward improving
their teaching.
A report made to the county
Board of Public Instruction at
the January meeting said that an
analysis of
--"7 achievement
test given
J / - elementary
students in
1962-63 is
"encourag-
lI ing".
Tests, like
the ones
given in
Highlands
County, are given to many
thousands of students across the
nation. In 1962-63 the
Highlands County students
were reading, with few excep-
tions, as well or better than the
national norm. The county stu-
dents usually show up well in
the science tests and in 1962-63
they made their usual high
scores.

Highlands County grade
schoolers did not show up quite
as well in mathematics and their
scores were slightly below the
national standards in that one
field. However, county school
officials have pointed out that
the teachers have spent many
hours studying better ways of
teaching mathematics.
The area of study skills, a
few years ago very weak, has
been rising steadily and local
teachers are hopeful that the
1963-64 tests will show
Highlands County students to
equal or excel the 'national
norm.
This fall the county schools
entered their second year of
work with "lay readers".
English teachers in all parts of
the county have been enthusias-
tic about the results obtained by
hiring "lay assistants" with
strong backgrounds in English,
to help grade papers and correct
written work.
In another area, two schools
of this county have been chosen
to serve as "pilot schools" in
developing procedures for the
use of a new state-issued bul-
letin, "Design for Teaching
Dental Health in Florida
Schools." Lake Placid and E.O.
Douglas schools are working in
this area and will continue
throughout this year.'

International travelers delayed as

customs computers shut down


Associated Press
MIAMI - Travelers arriv-
ing in the United States from
abroad were stuck in long lines
at airports nationwide when a
virus shut down a U.S. Customs
computer system for several
hours, officials said.
Homeland Security
spokesman Russ Knocke said
the virus impacted computer
systems at a number of airports
Thursday night, including those
in New York, San Francisco,
Miami, Los Angeles, Houston,
Dallas and Laredo, Texas.
Knocke said customs agents
immediately switched to manu-
al inspections. He declined to
provide details on where the
computer virus originated, but
said Friday that investigators
were still looking into where it
came from.
The worst delays appeared to
be at Miami International
Airport, where about 4,000 to
5,000 people waited to clear
immigration, airport
spokesman Greg Chin said.
Everything was back to normal
Friday.
Brian Hunt and his wife, who
were visiting from Spain, said it
took them nearly five hours to
be processed.
"The agent was very charm-
ing, very nice and greeted us
with a smile," he told The
Miami Herald. "It was just an
unfortunate thing, but these
things happen. Who do we
blame?"
The computer problem origi-
nated in database systems locat-


ed in Virginia and lasted from
around 6 p.m. until about '11:30
p.m., said Zachary Mann,
spokesman for U.S. Customs
and Border Protection in south-
ern Florida.

PAUSE AND CONSIDI
Jan Merop


ER


Constant

companions
A walk on the beach.
A hike in mountainous
woodlands.
A stroll down a quaint
street or garden pathway.
Each is significantly
enhanced when in the compa-
ny of someone who shares
the enjoyment.
But take that walk, hike or
stroll with someone who is
indifferent and the experience
is wearying. All the while,
you try to get that person to
see and enjoy what you find
so fascinating. But, with a
shrug of the shoulders and a
hint of mockery on the face,
the joy fades and you're sud-
denly very tired.
That's the difference
between having a companion
by your side - someone that's
a chum or mate that is simi-
larly aligned with you - as
opposed to just anyone who
consents to come along.
In the first instance, fel-
lowship and companionship
warm the air with harmony.
In the second, indifference
sends a chill wind and a grey
cloud cover.
So, who do you want as a
constant companion? It's a
good question to ask when
getting to know someone ...
especially if marriage could .
be in the picture. Do you
knock yourself out trying to
please the other person and
feel stifled in his presence?
Or, do you naturally interact
comlanionably?
I remember a relationship I
had where I walked on eggs,
never sure if something I said
or did would spark anger or
derision. That person was
hardly a faithful, comfortable
companion - one I could be
at home with no matter
where we were or what we
were doing.
However, when Ken and I
met, that companionable
quality was evident. Of
course we had differences.
But the similarities out-
weighed the differences giv-
ing our relationship stability,
joy and a peacefulness that
accompanied us wherever we
went.
When this quality is rooted
in faith in God through an
abiding relationship with
Jesus Christ, it permeates
one's life. It's not just head
knowledge and general
ascent.
Then the two grow togeth-
er with God as the head of
their home. The husband
takes his role as spiritual
leader seriously and the wife
thrives and grows under his
cherishing influence.
"Husbands, likewise, dwell
with them with understand-
ing, giving honor to the wife,
as to the weaker vessel, and
as being heirs together of the
grace of life, that your
prayers may not be hin-
dered." (I Peter.3: 7, NKJV)
Recently, a devotional
question focused on three
distinct characteristics of the
fruit of the Spirit - love, joy
and peace.
One builds on the other.
God's love fills my heart
with joy that no one can take
away because it's rooted in
the One who indwells me.
Consequently, the peace that
passes understanding is mine
- based on that love which is
reflected in joy and expressed
in a heart at rest in Christ.
Life is enhanced when
love, joy and peace are my
constant companions; and,
I'm doubly blessed because
they accompany my husband
as well. Selah.

N, ,S,,, AVON PARK

or more than 30 years, Leon McRae hasn't strapped on a pair of
____ baseball cleats. But, that doesn't prevent him from regularly leav-
ing his tracks in the soft orange clay of softball and baseball
infields.
When McRae was 26 years old, there was a gunshot then a bullet pene-
trated his spine. During that year. he was playing semi-professitoal base-
ball after a successful college career at Florida A&M University in
Tallahassee.
"I hadn't made it big yet, and I still had dreams of making it, McRae
said from his wheelchair in his Avon Park apartment.
The accident paralyzed both his body and, inevitably, his baseball
career, which bad taken him as far as Class A Minor League baseball.
But, he refused to allow the accident to take away his love for the game.
Instead, be resulted to feeding his baseball need the only way he could:
coaching.
Now, at 50 years old. McRae shares his baseball expertise while coach-
ing recreational baseball in Avon Park. He also coaches a coed softball
Steam at Vision Community Church. wherebe attends services.
Josh Rodriguez was first coached by McRae during his sophomore year
at Avon Park High School. Since then, McRae has helped him secure a
scholarship as a shortstop for Florida A&M. He is going into his second
year of college, but still receives skill "polishing" lessons from McRae
during semester breaks.
"He knows a lot more about baseball than any of the of the other
coaches around here, in my opinion," Rodriguez said. 'It's all of his expe-
cience that makes his coaching style that good."
While coaching, McRae said the wheelchair isn't always a bandicap.
and can actually be an advantage.
"It's (baseball) a mind game -- 80 percent is mental," McRae said.
"God gives you the physical part, but you have to learn the game. If you
don't have the mental, you've just got brute strength, almost like a robot."
McRae said being in a wheelchair has forced him to focus on
the mental part of the game.
"Coaching is like a chess game," McRae said. "You
match wits, and I like matching wits."
Yet, he still joins the players on the field and
works on specific skills such as fielding, throwing,
and catching.
McRae's biggest coaching challenge is demon-

Barnes' bromeliads blooming everywhere

By KATARA SIMMONS--. I "T",
News-Sun . . . ;, f


SEBRING - It is obvious that
Lillian Georgia Barnes knows a
lot about bromeliads since her
garden is filled with the flowery
plant.
She estimates that there are
more than 1,000 blooming in her
garden at her home on Lakeview
Drive. Barnes is an active 88-year-old widow who
started growing bromeliads about eight years ago. "I
started with only eight plants and now I have hun-
dreds," she said.
Apparently bromeliads slowly die over a period of a
year or two after flowering. However, several pups usu-
ally develop during the flowering cycle and spread.
The tropical plants are relatively easy to grow and
usually prefer shade rather than direct sunlight. Oak
trees tower over Barnes' property, which provides per-
fect conditions for the plant.
"The summer splash variety are the only ones in
bloom right now," Barnes explained, as she plucked
one of the large stunning red flowers. "I have about
eight different kinds (of bromeliads) in my garden, but
there are hundreds of different varieties."
Barnes admitted, "I started growing them because I
like them and I didn't feel like picking the leaves up all
the time under the oak trees."
Maintaining bromeliads are very simple, according
to Barnes.
"You never have to water them, they are completely
an air plant like pineapples," she explained. In fact
pineapples also are bromeliads and grow in Barnes'
garden.
She was the president of the Garden Club of Sebring
n 1998-2000 and currently is a member. If anyone

Drive in Sebring.


would like to be a member of the local garden club,
contact Barnes at 385-2886.
Barnes said, "I have enjoyed gardening for many
years."


Blooming bromeliads help Barnes keep her mind off
of the declining health of her brother, Danny, and the
recent death of her beloved pet parakeet, Peanut.
Barnes is the caretaker for her brother.

Dr. Dobson: Some women see
the responsibility that way, but
we should recognize that most
other occupations are boring, too.

who reads dusty books in a Dob

Few of us enjoy heart-thumping excitement
each moment of our professional lives.
Even high-profile jobs have their boring
dimensions.
On a trip to Washington, D.C., a few
years ago, my hotel room was located next
to the room of a famous cellist who was in
the city to give a concert that evening. I
could hear him through the walls as he
practiced hour after hour. He did not play
beautiful symphonic renditions; he repeated,
scales and runs and exercises, over and over
and over. This practice began early in the
morning (believe me!) and continued until
the time of his concert. As he strolled on
stage that evening, I'm sure many individu-
als in the audience thought to themselves,
"What a glamorous life!" Some glamour! I

know, are terrible conversation-
alists.
No, I doubt if the job of a
homemaker and mother is much
more boring than most other
jobs, particularly if the woman
refuses to be isolated from adult
contact. But as far as importance


of the assignment is concerned,
THE no job can compete with the
I||Y responsibility of shaping and
molding a new human being.
ames That statement is not particularly
Pson politically correct in this cultural
environment, but I believe it to
be true.
May I remind full-time mothers of one
more important consideration: You will not
always carry the responsibility you now
hold. Your children will be with you for a
few brief years and the obligations you now
shoulder will be nothing more than dim
memories. Enjoy every moment of these
days, even the difficult times, and indulge
yourself in the satisfaction of having done
an essential job right!
Question: My older child is a great stu-
dent and earns straight A's year after year.
Her younger sister, now in the sixth grade,
is completely bored in school and won't
even try. The frustrating thing is that the
younger girl is probably brighter than her
older sister. Why would she refuse to apply
her ability like this?
Dr. Dobson: There could be many rea-


irt of workforce
sons for her lack of academic interest, but
let me suggest the most probable explana-
tion. Children will often refuse to compete
when they think they are likely to place sec-
ond instead of first. Therefore, a younger
child may avoid challenging an older sib-
ling in his area of greatest strength. If son
No. 1 is a great athlete, then son No. 2 may
be more interested in collecting butterflies.
If daughter No. I is an accomplished
pianist,, then daughter No. 2 may be a boy-
crazy goof-off.
. This rule does not always hold true, of
course, depending on the child's fear of
failure and the way he estimates his
chances of successful competition. If his
confidence is high, he may blatantly wade
into the territory owned by big brother,
determined to do even better. However, the
more typical response is to seek new areas
of compensation that are not yet dominated
by a family superstar.
If this explanation fits the behavior of
your younger daughter, then it would be
wise to accept something less than perfec-
tion from her school performance. Every
child need not fit the same mold - nor can
we force her to do so.

Mom makes plans to share daughter-in-law's inheritance


Dear Abby: I recently received a modest
inheritance. My husband and I are about 10
years from retiring. The money is just
enough to put away for a secure retirement,
not enough for a lavish lifestyle.
The problem is my mother-in-law,
"Vera." She is 70, healthy and active. She
manages very well in her paid-for home.
Vera has now begun looking at assisted-liv-
ing communities that, for a hefty monthly
rent, provide chef-prepared meals in a din-
ing room, activities and transportation.
She's assuming that my husband and I will
pay this rent, since we are now "wealthy" in
her estimation.
Abby, if we take on this responsibility,
the money will be spent by the ,time we
tire. and Vera w ill still need to pay her,

The family) and is really not her business.
We didn't brag or start making showy pur-
chases.
My husband feels as I do about putting it
aside for retirement, but we're both
stumped about how to handle his mom.
Have you any suggestions? - "The
Heiress" in Upstate N.Y.
Dear "Heiress": Before your mother-in-
law's fantasy about dwelling on easy street
becomes any more grandiose, you and her
son must schedule a reality session with
her. If she's planning on upgrading her
lifestyle from what it is now, she should
first consult her CPA or financial planner to
make sure her assets will cover the cost. It

Dear Abby: I'm in a real bind.
I have an employee who decides
on her own hours even when a
schedule is posted every month.
Some days, she doesn't show up
for work at all, and other times
she leaves before her shift is
over.
When I confront her about it,
she gets angry and threatens me
with, "I'm going to phone Labor
Standards on you!" Can she be
fired for this kind of behavior?

Dear Ignored: Here in the United States,
,itis recommended that the matter.be han-

her of the `sted :work'schedule, and

during work hours. Afterward, a memo -
signed or initialed by the employee -
would be placed in her employee file. If this
doesn't remedy the situation and the
woman is still noncompliant, there would
be grounds for dismissal, and the Labor
Board would probably agree the dismissal
was justified.
Because I am not familiar with the law in
Canada, I urge you to discuss the matter
with someone familiar with labor law there.

Florida
scrub jay regionally isolated.
Within Florida, populations are
further restricted to oak-domi-
nated scrub habitats associated
with old coastal dunes like the
ridge in Highlands County.
The blue jay is also a close
relative of the scrub jay. Florida
scrub jays are about the same
size as blue jays. The scrub jay
is a duskier shade of blue
which grades into a pale gray
on the head and belly. They do
not have the striking black and
white markings of the blue jay.
Scrub jays have short wings
and long tails, both being fea-
tures adapted to their highly
terrestrial existence.
The Florida scrub, jay is
known for its tameness and
affinity to eat peanuts right out
of one's hand. (Note: it's
against the law to feed or
harass wildlife.)
Scrub jays live in a large ter-
ritory in a family group that
usually consists of two to three
adults and a juvenile helper.
Birds forage independently in
close proximity to each other.
One bird often serves as a sen-
tinel and warns feeding birds of
approaching predators. The
jays actively defend their terri-
tory.
Scrub jays eat a wide variety
of items, usually ones that can
be picked up off the ground.
Scrub jays prey on insects, spi-
ders, lizards,' small frogs,
snakes, and mice. They also
forage for nuts and berries.
Acorns are the most important
food item. They gather and
bury (or cache) harvested
acorns. The jays feed on their
cache throughout the year
when other food items are
scarce. Annually, a single jay
will harvest and bury 6,000 to
8,000 acorns.
The nesting season extends
from March through June.
Shallow nests are built from
twigs and palmetto fibers in
low to mid-height shrubs. The
usual clutch size is three or four
eggs.

An inspirational thought

If you art feeling somewhat
discouraged, wondering if God
r . cares or even questioning if God
is really there with you, let me
"" C encourage you from the Word of
God. Hebrews 13:5 says, "Let
your conversation be without
covetousness; and lbe content
with such things as yea have; for
He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake
thee." Wherever you are, in whatever situation you
are facing, according to Hebrews 13:5, the Lord is
there with you. Once you accepted Christ as your
personal Savior, you have been adopted in the."
family of God. There will be trials, test and
sufferings.
We sometimes have to learn obedience through the
things we suffer. It is very important that as
Christians, we get into the word of God. study' the
word of God, and be able to apply the word of God.
It doesn't matter what trap the elem'iy lihas planned
for us; the word of God reminds us in I
Corinthians 10:13. there is a wila o / t-sca /
already prepared for us. Be encouraged!

Gemini: It's your turn to be a comfort to your friends


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- Nothing seems to be going
your way this week, and you're
starting to feel the stress.
Knuckle down and bear it.
because these circumstances are
only temporary. In the mean-
time special friends and love
ones will be willing to let you
vent some of your frustrations.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- A new person comes into
your life this week, and you'll
'hit it off. Enjoy the thrill of
developing new friendships, but


don't forget about those who
have been standing by you over
the years. Since pressure at
work will be light, try to spread
yourself around. A loved one
has a surprise obr you.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
-- You've been waiting for a
new business opportunity to
come your way. This may be
your week. When it does, you'll
be ready to jump through
hoops. but remember that confi-
dence, rather than over-eager-
ness, will be your selling point.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Leon McRae carefully observes the youth he is coaching on an Avon
Park softball field.

becoming paralyzed. During
this time, it was his faith that
pulled him out of depression.
"Once you've been through
hell and got out of the wilder-
ness alive, the only thing that
can redeem you is God,"
McRae said. "I was putting the
game before God and didn't
know my first love was God."
While in the Minor League,
McRae played for the Kansas
City Royals, Minnesota Twins
and Atlanta Braves organiza-
tions as a shortstop.
McRae's coaching experi-
ence began at Florida 'A&M,
where he would often coach
and play at the same time.
While there, he received a
degree in physical education. In
1990, McRae returned to
Florida A&M and coached for
five years.
He moved back to his home-
town, Avon Park, in 1995.
Then, for a short period, he
worked in medical office man-
agement. But, he didn't enjoy it
and went back to coaching.
"You have to get back on the
field and express yourself,"
McRae said. "Things you do
well you take control of."


He had a special opportunity
to return to his alma mater,
Avon Park High, as an assistant
baseball coach in 1998. Now he
is looking forward to teaming
up with his childhood mentor,
Al Hinson, a math teacher at
Avon Park Middle, to start a
youth league team.
"We just want to get kids
involved and off the corner and
street," McRae said.
McRae was born into a base-
ball family. He was the second
youngest of 10 brothers and sis-
ters, including older brother
Hal, the three-time Major
League All-Star who played
with the Kansas City Royals
and Cincinnati Reds, managed
the Royals and is now batting
instructor for the St. Louis
Cardinals.
Two of McRae's sisters and
one brother are still live in Avon
Park. And, McRae's adult chil-
dren, Calago, Leon Jr., Katata
and Kevin also reside in Avon
Park.
McRae plans to continue
coaching baseball as long as he
is able.
"I'd never stop being around
the game, because of my love
for the game," McRae said. "If
you love something you're
going to be around it."

Cancer (June 22 - -
July 23) - This Metr
week it seems that all Sen
your friends are look-
ing for your shoulder
to cry on. If you feel over-
whelmed by their need for your
sympathy, just be grateful that
their problems are not yours.
And remember, whenever you
get the blues, they'd do the
same for you.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
You've been feeling caged in
for the past few weeks. A
touchy situation has kept you
on pins and needles, but it will
be resolved to your satisfaction.
With the pressure finally off,
this is your chance to roar.
Enjoy the opportunity to cut
loose and let off steam.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- A money situation has been
keeping your in knots. You've
been tightening your belt, but
you'll get some relief soon. An
old flame may be coming back
into the picture. Be kind, but
honest. If you don't want to
rekindle this romance, don't
lead them on.


SCOPES

vice


Libra (Sept. 23 -
Oct. 23) - You've
heard that nice guys
finish last, but that
won't be the case for
you this week. Your


good deeds will be
noticed and rewarded. Accept
your good fortune modestly,
and friends and co-workers will
be even more impressed with
you.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- You've been feeling like a
black cloud is hanging over
your head. Are you taking out
your frustrations on others? If
so, you might want to stop
blaming others and think about
the cause of your dark mood.
Despite what you may be think-
ing, there's nothing wrong that
can be fixed.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - You may feel that every
job is falling in your lap this
week. Instead of complaining,
use the opportunity to show
your superiors that you can rise
to the challenge. Friends and
loved ones will be there to
cheer you on.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - A friend asks for your


help with a difficult problem. If
his or her request seems incon-
venient, look at this as the
opportunity to put a "favor" in
the bank. It won't be long
before you'll need help from
your friends, too, and when you
do your generosity won't be
forgotten. Taurus plays an
important role.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- A romance in your life has
appeared to be winding down in
recent weeks. It may seem easy
to walk away, but with a little
effort on your part you can fan
the flames once again. Keep in
mind that nothing in life comes
easy, and efforts over the long
haul mean as much as much as
spontaneous moments of pas-
sion.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- Some of your best laid plans
will go awry this week. Instead
of getting depressed, go with
the flow. In the end, you may be
glad some things didn't work
out. Turn to friends and loved
ones for support. They'll help
take the edge off your disap-
pointment because they care
about you.

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


Photographer immortalizes brides, butterflies and blooms


News-Sun
LAKE PLACID

brides have in common?
Not much unless it would be
that they are the favorite subjects
of local photographer Pamela Jessiman. Some of
her work has been entered in the art contest and
will be on display next weekend at the 15th
annual Caladium Festival in Lake Placid.
Jessiman is a seasoned photographer and


long-time resident of Highlands County, as well
as one of the active members of the Highlands
Art League.
She loves to capture the beauty surrounding
each one of us. "We often are so busy that we
don't take time to appreciate what is truly beau-
tiful. Whether it is capturing the intricate detail
of butterfly's wing, or the elegant beauty emu-
lated by the love between the bride and groom,"
she said.
She has participated in The Sebring on the
Circle, Fine Art Exhibition and more recently in
the "Mother and Daughter" exhibition at South
Florida Community College.
Though Jessiman can take images through
conventional photography, she states that her
passion is to create an artistic expression with
each image, an impression of romantic
ambiance with heavenly hues.
Her specialty is fusing several images into


one composition. She says it is a photographer's
ambition to tell a story with each image.
"As computer technology advanced, I became
very interested in the digital aspect. I enjoy pho-
tography, so I combined the element of catching
just that right shot with digital technology, creat-
ing a masterful piece of art. Some of my work
depicts the romantic feminine side of nature, a
flair of ambiance, an expression of cybernetic
romance." she said.
Jessiman is so devoted to her work and the
support of Highlands
Art League that when
a wedding photogra-
.- plphy session is booked
- - with her through the
league, she donates a
S' portion of the proceeds
. back to the league.
"I truly have a love,
passion and apprecia-
tion for all the arts,
because it gives us a
medium for creative
Sa expression and an
opportunity to express
ourselves in so many
different ways," she
said.
Currently, she is
working on a new
publication of an
Interactive Desktop Journal that will soon be
published, including with some of her photogra-
phy/illustrations, animation and music. The title
will be "Dancing with Him."
In the journal, she shares her personal vision
of what it might be like to dance with Christ. "It
really is a personal and fulfilling experience,
especially concentrating on the positive aspects
of life, such as love, joy and peace, being
accepted for the unique and wonderfully made
creations that we are. There is no disappoint-
ment in His eyes, only acceptance," she said.
Jessiman said the desktop journal will be
available on CD and possibly a USB key. It is
password protected arid is available online at
www. 1lchapter.com.
Her wedding portrait work can be viewed
through the gallery at
twltniighlandaw:tleacgue.coin or her nature
images at www. vissionlightgalley. com.

Other viewpoints

Secrecy has been one of the many reasons the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test is so easily reviled by
parents and others. Since the high-stakes test was first
administered in 1998, the Department of Education has
kept every edition sealed. Revealing previous editions
would require the state to write new ones... Keeping
them secret is a money-saver. But it's also been a way to
keep scrutiny of the controversial test to a minimum.
Whatever the reason for secrecy, the state's stance was
indefensible. Now, the Department of Education is mod-
ifying its course. As early as this week, the department
will begin making some tests available on its Web site
(fldoe.org) for public viewing.
The belated thaw doesn't go nearly far enough. ... The
Department of Education will selectively release only a
small set of tests every year, leaving the rest closed.
This is not the Department of Education being
accountable. It's the Department of Education attempting
to placate its critics with a half-baked solution.
In Florida, third- and 10th-graders may not advance to
their next grade unless they pass their FCAT. Those held
back are forced to take remedial classes. ... There is no
way for parents to know of any grading errors. There is
no way to know if some of those students will spend
another year in the same grade through no fault of their
own.
There are many reasons to debate the value of the
FCAT. The issue of previous tests' availability has noth-
ing to do with that debate. It has to do with state account-
ability and fairness toward students. On both counts, and
in spite of its limited concessions, the Department of
Education is still failing.

An editorial excerpt from The Daytona Beach News-
Journal.

A bill passed by the Legislature and signed into law in
June by Gov. Jeb Bush makes it easier to build on pro-
tected wetlands of 10 acres or less. All that's needed now


Florida's

wetlands are a

precious

re source that

once destroyed

cannot be

restored.


Although the state and the


for Florida to enhance its
reputation as a place
where draining-and-filling
sensitive lands takes
precedence over environ-
mental protection is for
.the U.S.. Corps of
Engineers to bow out of
the process. We strongly
urge the Corps not to sur-
render its pivotal role in
keeping the wetlands safe.
The current process
requires approval from
both the state and the
Corps for wetland permits.
.orps approve nearly all per-


mits presented to them, the Corps process is better
because it is slower and uses different criteria, including
considering whether a project can be built someplace
else to avoid environmental damage.
With developers, time is money, so it is understandable
that they would want quicker approvals. But Florida's
wetlands are a precious resource that once destroyed can-
not be restored.
Some Corps officials have expressed a desire to aban-
don their role in evaluating smaller parcels so they can
focus on larger tracts. That's like neglecting the presence
of termites to focus on locusts.
The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Trudi Williams, R-
Fort Myers, was partially written by developers' lobby-
ists, according to a report in The St. Petersburg Times.
Lobbyists now are pressuring the Corps to go along with
state-only permitting.
Wetlands play an important role in wildlife habitat,
flood protection and filtering pollution, among other
things. The Corps shouldn't relinquish its vital role in
wetland protection.

An editorial excerpt from The Miami Herald.
E
An anniversary is usually something to celebrate.
From birthdays, weddings or graduations, we choose to
revel in a moment of accomplishment.
Thursday, there was another kind of anniversary.
One year ago Hurricane Charley - on Friday the 13th
- thundered into southwest Florida, cutting a swath of
destruction that is still visible. Many lessons were taught
and, for the most part, learned. Let's look at two worth
our reflection.
First, the path of the storm.
Most thought, and it was predicted, that Charley would
parallel Florida's Gulf coast until it went ashore at
Tampa. Yet, the storm veered ashore well south of that
mark though still in the "cone of uncertainty" that fore-
casters now use for warnings instead of the sharper line
of predictions. We now know to be more wary of pre-
dicted paths.
Second, what happens when a storm is even a near
miss for communities like Naples.
It is well-documented how destructive a hurricane can
be for those taking a direct hit. Just ask any of Charley's
victims still sheltered by a blue tarp on his or her roof
today. Still, Collier County, subjected to winds and rain,
saw neighborhoods sweat and grope through days with-
out power. We now know to actually be prepared - not
just aware that we might need to be prepared.
The lesson of being prepared might be the most impor-
tant one today, the first anniversary of Hurricane Charley.

Tech stampede not worth the hurt, embarrassment


OK, it is not a secret
that I am somewhat of LAURA'
a geek (or, as I prefer
to be called, a L
"geekette"). My oldest i
son and I actually went
so far as to build a computer,
which works quite nicely since
our preacher (who is a geek in
his spare time) helped undo
some of the damage we did
when we put it together.
It is sitting in my office at the
moment, waiting to be loaded
in the van along with a number
of John's possessions, to go to
college. My office is a mess
while it occupies its space,
along with a boxed printer that
is also college bound.
The story of taking my oldest
to college is another story, one
that will be told as soon as we
figure out when Mom will lose
control and start crying.
But, back to the topic of this
column, I like gadgets. I own a
cell phone, a PDA, and both a
desktop computer and a laptop
computer. These have become
very important parts of my life,

Bush's plans to change it a lit-
tle.
Bill said, "Social Security
was Franklin Roosevelt's idea
and a good one at that. The pro-
gram has rescued many a poor
person just at the time of life
when a little rescue came in
handy. Several administrations
have abused the fund, but
somehow or other it remains
reasonably sound. I suppose the
president's idea on the surface
sounds pretty good, but, so do
the descriptions of other gov-
ernment departments." 'I "
I said, "Do you have any par-
ticular department in mind?"
Bill said, "Well, let's start
with immigration. If we have
between six and 10 illegal
aliens in this country, I would
venture to say that the organi-
zation responsible for keeping
them out is either not doing
their job, not being allowed to
do their job, or just plain can't
handle the situation.
"We could go on to other
agencies like the one that cov-
ers what we watch on televi-
sion and the first thought that
pops into your mind is 'Oh
really.' Then there is all those
folks paid to keep an eye on
Wall Street. They are charged
with keeping the stock market
honest and above board and
you say to yourself 'oh really.'
"What about Enron and
about a dozen others that have
bilked their shareholders out of
not millions but billions. What
were the folks doing that were
charged with watching over
that bunch? They must have
been napping or on vacation.
"No, I don't think they
should mess around with Social
Security. Perhaps someone
should suggest that we lay
aside $1,000 when a child is
born in this country, place it in
a fund not to be utilized until
the age of 65. Even at today's
miserable interest rates, that
$1,000 would be a healthy
piece of change when the
owner reached retirement age.
That money could be used to
assist him or her with their
Social Security benefits.
"No, don't try to fix some-
thing that isn't broke. I know
there are many that think I am
mistaken and it wouldn't be the
first time. However, talk to a
disabled veteran about the
excellent care he receives from
that expensive government
agency called the "Veterans
Administration" or take a gan-
der at your income tax form.
"That outfit has simplified

However, even this affection

The laptops were four years

One 20-year-old, armed with

By the time it was all over,
17 people had suffered minor

I have to ask myself, what

This was not the last lifeboat off

This was a stampede for an out-

Look, I love computers and
computer gadgets. I use them; I
buy them, and will continue to

Nor is it worth physically

A message for those in

cates they don't share my views
on this: Computers break and
become outdated. Your fellow
human man may break, but you
shouldn't be the one doing the

a computer and be less human

"Gentlemen may cry peace,
peace, but there is no peace."
Today we cry peace, peace,
have a "peace process," "a road
map to peace," and many other
peace plans, but there is no
peace. The peace process is a
nice way of saying, "people are
killing each other."
It is impossible to have peace
in the world. We could have
some peace in our country if we
really want it. The following
plan should bring peace to us:
1 - Apologize to the world for
every time we have interfered
for whatever reason in any
affairs of any other country. In
the future we will not interfere in
any way in the affairs of any
other country except the United
Kingdom and the other coun-
tries that stood by us in the Iraq
conflict.
We will interfere in their
affairs only if requested by the
country. If you other countries
have an earthquake, hurricane,
war or other problems we will
not interfere. Maybe France
would help.
2 - We will get energy inde-
pendent as soon as possible. We
will start drilling for oil in our
coastal plains and also on that
mud mountain in Alaska known
as ANWAR. Not one person in
100,000,000 will ever see it.
The animals will just have to
live without the small amount of
land that will be required for
drilling. We will start building
nuclear power plants. The envi-
ros will just have to live with it.
3 - We will manage the oil in
Iraq and sell'it to the U.K.,our
other friends and ourselves. We
will sell it at market price, take
out the cost of production, the
cost of liberating Iraq, the cost of
rebuilding Iraq, and the rest to
be spent on hospitals, schools
and other things for the benefit
of the Iraqi people.
The Iraqi people will assist in
this and take over after we
accomplish the above.
4 - Since most countries do

not want our troops in their
country, we will at once bring
our troops h1one Cfrom all over
the world.
Our Army and Air Force and
Marines will be deployed to train
along our north and south bor-
ders and seal both borders. The
Navy and Coast Guard, along
with their ships will seal all har-
bors. We will have to keep some
troops in the Middle East for a
while to complete the above
things.
5 - Tell the world that any ship
or plane or person that approach-
es our country without prior
clearance will be viewed as hos-
tile invasion and will be dealt
with accordingly.
6 - Stop all foreign aid at once,
except to those nations that
stood by us in Iraq.
7 - Stop all granting asylum to
anyone. If they can't get along
with their own country, they no
doubt wouldn't get along here.
8 - Deport all "illegal" aliens
now.
Use our military to assist in
rounding them up and move
them out without undue delay.
Illegals have already broken our
laws and are not entitled to the
same protections as a citizen.
A summary hearings is all
that would be required. No
papers, out asap. Stop giving cit-
izenship to any one born in the
USA unless born to USA citi-
zens.
9 - Get The United States out
of the United Nations.
10 - Get The United Nations
out of The United States. The
United Nations is communistic
and anti-United States.
11 - Repudiate all agreements
such as NAFTA, GATT, and any
other agreements of every kind
or character made through the
United Nations. In other words,
do as our first president warned


and get out of all "entangling
alliances."
12 -Tell the world that we will
trade with all nations. Further,
we are a big and a strong nation.
While we will not in any way
interfere in the affairs of other
nations, we will respond vigor-
ously to any assault on any of our
people, planes, ships or property.
We will tend only to our own
business, unless we are
attacked.
So, World please be guided
accordingly.

'Cabaret' is a

great show
Editor:
I have just seen "Cabaret" at
the Highlands Little Theatre,
thanks to the smiling people
that greet us at the front door to
the stage managers, producers,
costume designers, choreogra-
phers and directors Melanie
Boulay and Jennifer
Westergon. What a hard work-
ing group of people you all are.
"Cabaret" is a busy, fast
moving play. The "dancing"
Kitkat Girls brought a lot of
applause from the audience.
The men's chorus was so good.
The "emcee" Dustin Martz
made us all smile. Kristin
Taylor and Pete Pollard as
usual made their parls look
"easy" and Pete - now we all
know how you will look when
you do get old.
This was truly an ensemble,
each one made this a hit! So to
everyone connected with the
Highlands Little Theatre, thank
you for giving so much of your
time and talent to keep us
entertained.
The craft and talent of this
incredible group of people with
the acting, singing and dancing


so infected us, it had the audi
ence tapping their toes. Wc
look forward to the tipcomini
shows that. \ou are already\
preparing for.

Fleeman, Ready


on top in Sertoma


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK - The
Sertoma Tournament is again
the Steve Ready and Jeff
Fleeman show.
The Polk County pairing that
sandwiched victory in 2003
with two second place finishes
in 2002 and 2004 are in firm
control midway through this
year's 28th annual Highlands
Independent Bank/Sertoma
Golf Tournament after carding
a 62 in Saturday best-ball play
at Highlands Ridge North.
"I just got really hot with the


putter," Ready said. "We shot'
7-under on the back nine, which
is crazy, because the back
nine's much tougher."
"Steve played great,"
Fleeman said of his playing
partner, who holed six of the
seven back-nine birdies. "I
think I cut him about four or
five shots, but he played great."
Fleeman and Ready lead
Ryan Adair and Jason McGir by
four shots and three other two-
somes by five shots heading

Devils pleased with effort

Winning first half


vs. Lake Wales good

enough for Cousins

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE WALES - It's still the presea-
son after all.
While Thursday night's Kickoff Classic
between Sebring and Lake Placid resem-
bled a regular season game, Friday's meet-
ing between visiting Avon Park and Lake
Wales was treated more like the exhibition
it was, with the Red Devils substituting
liberally in the second half of a 21-12
Highlander victory.
"I'm not.unpleased .it all. l'L..I.'L.O ilui

Avon Park head coach T.C.

Avon Park The Avon Park first unit

Community late in the first half. when
High School the Devils recorded their
on Friday only two scores of the game
within a six-minute span.
"We started real slow, but finally caught
on," Cousins said. "Our passing game got
hot, and I told our kids if we keep doing
the things we're doing, and get better,
we're going to be tough to beat."
T.K. Hill was 0-for-5 with an intercep-
tion to begin the game, but completed
seven of his next eight passes to spark the
Avon Park attack and wound up going 10-
for-20 for 158 yards in the air.
"He was hot, and when he's hot, he's
tough," Cousins said.
Hill's arm was the key to a 90-yard
drive that took only 1:51 to give the
Devils their first score on a Bo Comadore
14-yard reverse with 6:18 left in the sec-
ond quarter.
Hill then passed for every yard except

Swimming

Tough act to follow for


this year's Blue Streaks

Only one swimmer returns from last
season's state championship relay team


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING - If it's possible
for swimmers to have big shoes
to fill, that's precisely what this
year's Blue Streaks must do.
After last year's 200-yard
medley relay team captured the
state championship, coach Pat
Caton is looking for someone or
a group of someones on this
year's Sebring team who could
possibly match that success.
"I'm not sure how we're
going to top it," Caton said,
"but as far as the boys (go), we
have the numbers. Right now
we have almost 20 boys on the
team, so we're going to be OK


number-wise."
On the girls side the roster is
even longer, Caton said, and
newcomers make up nearly half
the teams as the allure of the
state title from last year appears
to be generating interest in par-
ticipation.
"I think it lets the kids know
that swimming is an important
sport," she said. "Even though
it's a minor sport. we can still
have high competition levels."
Precisely what level the
Streaks are competing at this
year is still to be determined.
"I just can't answer that until
we swim Tuesday," Caton said.
"We swim in Winter Haven on

amongst the receivers, hauling in four
catches for 64 yards, but Cousins was
pleased with all of his ball-catchers.

Florida's

'Big Three'

seek return

to old form

By TIM REYNOLDS
Associated Press
Gandhi was the top movie.
Commodore 64's were hot.
And soaring gas prices drove
Americans mad.
Well, at least something
from 1982 remains constant
today.
Until this past season, 1982
was the last time none of
Florida's premier programs -
Miami, Florida State and
Florida - finished among the
nation's top 10. They lost 11
games in 2004, the highest
combined total since 1981. All
missed the Bowl
Championship Series and
looked nothing like national
title contenders.
There was nothing big at all
about the "Big Three,,' who
were baffled, befuddled and
humbled.
"It's the first time since I can
remember that it's been like
this in the state," says Gavin
Dickey, Florida's junior quar-
terback and
wide receiv- 'One of us
er who grew seemed to
up in always play for
Tallahassee. all the marbles.
"I think There's been a
they've all definite drop-
hit rock bot-
tom." off'
H a v e MIKE PETERSON,
those words former Gator LB
ever before
been said about Sunshine State
football'? Rock,1'.. ii.'.i
"I would think (Jut is an
aberration," says Florida State
coach Bobby Bowden.
This year, the state - and
everyone else - will see if
that's really the case.
The trio has combined to win
eight national titles since 1983,
placing at least one school -
and usually two - in the
nation's final top. five for 21
straight years. But last year,
Miami, at No. 11, was the
front-runner. Florida State was
15th, Florida unranked. And all
three were out of the national-
title picture by Thanksgiving.
The Hurricanes and Gators
wound up playing each other in
the Peach Bowl on New Year's
Eve, with Miami prevailing. At
least Florida State played on
the traditional big day for col-
lege football - Jan. 1, albeit
only against West Virginia in
the Gator Bowl.
The big-payday, big-prestige
games - the Rose, Sugar,
Fiesta and Orange bowls -
were well out of reach.
"One of us seemed to always
play for all the marbles," says
Mike Peterson, the former
Florida linebacker now playing
for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Tuesday against several other
teams, and it would just be
interesting to see how we com-
pare this year. With new ones I
just don't know."
While it will be tough to


match the times of 2004, Caton
does not foresee a steep decline.
"I think we're going to do
fine, with numbers," she said.
"We might not always get first
or second, but maybe we're


going to get third-fourth-fifth,
or second-third-fourth."
Sebring is not without con-
nections to last year's glory,

Highlands Ridge South.
Ready, from Lakeland, said
the North course was playing
like its little brother to the south
on Saturday.
"'They've got the tees way
out," he said. "We played out
here a couple times the last cou-
ple weeks and it was tipped out
from the back, and that's the
way we thought it was going to
be played, and this golf course,
I would say is five, maybe six
shots harder from the back tee
box than where it's playing for
the tournament."
Fleeman added that they got
the most out of the short length
by taking care of business on
the greens.
"You can hit good iron shots
all clay, but you've got to be
able to make the putts, and we
were fortunate enough to be
able to do that today," he said.
"Every time one of us was out
of the hole, the other one made
a birdie."


DEVILS
Continued from IE
"We've got foum receivers,
Bo Comadore, Taiwan Perry,
Gerrard Coleman, Rafael
Johnson, plus our two tight
ends - Jeffrey Cousins made
three great catches - and then
Justin Wilson," Cousins said.
"That's what we're excited
about. We're going to stretch
the field, and we've just got to
get our running game caught
back up with our passing
game."
Factoring in quarterback
sacks, the Devils wound up
with a negative rushing total for
the night, but while Cousins
wants to improve markedly on
the ground, he said the pass can
produce yardage just as well.
"We're going to have to work
on our running game. We broke
a couple small runs, but for the
most part we were having trou-
ble running the ball, so then
we're going to throw the ball,"
he said. "
The way I see it, if you can't
run it, throw it, and we did."
New Lake Wales head coach
Marvin Pavy liked what the
Highlanders were able to do to
the Devils across the board
defensively, pointing to two
interceptions, including one off
of Avon Park backup quarter-
back Demetrious Gross' pass
that Welton Lee returned 36
yards for a score with 7:08 to go
in the third quarter.
"The defense did an awe-
some job tonight. They put
points on the board," Pavy said.
"They were the difference in
the game. And they gave us
several other opportunities that
we squandered."


Ready said putting will again.
he the key today.
"We've shot the best score in
the scramble the last two
years," he said. "We'll see. It's
a little teeny, tight golf course,
so you have to hit it good and
you have to make putts. That's
what it all comes down to, mak-
ing putts."
Dale Reed and Marc Ginn
will hope to do the same to pro-
tect their two-shot lead in the
first-flight after a 69 on
Saturday. Gary Williams and
Tommy Todd have a one-shot
lead with a 68 in the second
flight, the same slim advantage
held by Jimmy Tsakalos and
Frank Guglielmi in the third
flight.
Fourth-flight leaders Craig
Landress and Don Sebastian
shot 73 and enjoy a four-shot
cushion.
The bottom five flights
played Highlands Ridge South
on Saturday, with Jim Doty and
Greg Banning turning in the
low round at 71 to lead the fifth
flight. Paul Morris and Marty


Roepstorff are one shot back,
followed by Jan Valk and Mike
Whitney at 74.
Charles Peebles and Russ
Clement shot a 73 to lead the
sixth flight by three shots over
the tied teams of Chet Brojek
and Chuck Best, and Bruce
Lybarger and Tom Koppien.
Seventh flight is led by Joe
Rafferty and Bob Shepard, who
shot a 74 for a four-stroke lead
on Dave Greenslade and Dennis
Tondee. Paul Bottita and Scott
Bradley are another shot back at
79.
Gary Heintz and Dave Cox
lead the eighth flight after a
round of 81, with the team of
Greg Stupinski and Tom Griffin
tied for second with Jady
Prescott and Scott Dressel at
84.
Ronnie Handley Jr. and
Chuck Waltman fired a 79 to
lead the ninth flight, three shots
up on Jim Smallwood and Doug
Hendriks. Steve Griffin and
Leander Collette are tied for
third with Jimmy Van Cura and
Scott Harvey at 84.

Red Devil Leroy Sanders drags down Lake Wales quarterback T.J.
Hawthorne for a sack Friday night.


Still, Cousins wasn't dis-
mayed.
"I wanted to get Demetrious
Gross some, reps. He hasn't
played in a couple of years. He
was jittery, he was nervous, but
that's OK," Cousins said.
"Like I told our kids, he's
one hit away from him being
the starting quarterback, ;so I've
got to get him some reps, and
that's what these games are
for."
Cousins, too, liked what he
saw from his defense, which
limited the Highlanders to 180
yards of total offense and 1-for-
7 passing.
"Defensively I was very
pleased with them. They kept
us in the game," he said. "(Lake

either. Quinrlan Wolfe, the lone junior on the
champion relay team, returns to provide some
stability for new boys coach Cheryl Parsons,
mother of the now-graduated Jon Parsons, anoth-
er member of the relay team.
Caton, herself the mother of graduated relay-
team member Tyler Caton, is also expecting a
contribution from Steven Gercken, Nick Perilla
and Ronnie Sliwicki on the boys side, as well as
freshman Brian Kirsch.
Mainstays Shaanan Spiegel and Randy
Bochner are reliable weapons as divers, Caton
said.
"I think they also will add some points for us,"


BIG
Continued from IE
"Now, we're in the Peach Bowl,
the Gator Bowl, the Citrus
Bowl, the Whatever Bowl.
There's been a definite drop-
off, but one of them will bounce
back."
But who? And when? Those
are the pressing questions enter-
ing this season.
Florida State, even after an
offseason filled with trouble, is
still the overwhelming pick to
win its division of the Atlantic
Coast Conference - and if the
Seminoles do that, they'll earn
a spot in the league title game
and have a chance to play their
way into the BCS.
Florida, with a new coach in
Urban Meyer, a new offense
and no shortage of optimism
even after coming off a 7-5 year
that included the dismissal of
former coach Ron Zook, is
widely expected to contend in
the Southeastern Conference.
And Miami, with the electri-
fying Devin Hester, a new quar-


the offense or off special
teams."
An 8-yard scoring run by Lee
with 7:02 to go in the first quar-
ter and a T.J. Hawthorne 9-yard
rush for.a touchdown with 8:58
left in the third capped short
drives that were both set up by
Avon Park punts that went
backward.
"Both our punters together
might have had five kicks all
year," Cousins said, identifying
the punting game as the part of
his team that needs the most
work.
Nonetheless, and despite the
loss, Cousins came away think-
ing positive.
"Our kids played their tails
off against a pretty dang good
football team," he said.


she said.
The coach is looking for consistent contribu-
tion from three returning divers on the girls side
as well.
"I think those three are ones that last year gave
us points, and are going to be giving us points
this year," Caton said of Leeza Freeland, Ashley
Boyce and Jazmin Cuencas.
Caton now just hopes to get an idea of what to
expect from those who surround those core
divers.
"When they go to their first meet, we'll have
some times recorded for them, and for the next
time, we just want it to be faster," she said. "I
think this year the kids have to work on individ-
ual times. Swim something, and then the next
time you swim it, swim it faster, so that we have
something to look at."


terback in Kyle Wright and a
defense expected to be among
the nation's stingiest, believes it
can win the ACC and claw its
way back into the national
championship mix for the first
time since 2002, when it lost
the BCS title game to Ohio
State.
"I don't know about Florida
or Florida State, but I'm sure
it's on our mind," says Miami
offensive lineman Eric
Winston. "Miami's known for
always going to the big games
and playing in the big games
and playing in the big bowls,
and that's something we want to
get back to. ... And I'm sure
they want to get back to it just
as badly as we do."
Instead of the usual embar-
rassment of riches, 2004 was
just plain embarrassing for the
triumvirate. The unthinkable
occurred Oct. 30, when all three
teams were beaten in one day
for the first time since 1978.
On that stumble-filled
Saturday, Georgia beat Florida
31-24, Maryland upset Florida
State 20-17 and North Carolina


knocked Miami from the
unbeaten ranks, winning 31-28.
The next day, when the new
polls came out, the top 10 was
Florida-free - and that, of
course, is how things wound up
at season's end.
"We're not going away, and
neither is Florida or Florida
State," says Hurricanes coach
Larry Coker, whose team beat
both state rivals in 2004.
Most preseason speculation
seems to suggest that 2004 was
merely a one-year spell of
tough luck for the Sunshine
State, not an indicator that all
three schools have totally lost
their foothold on at least a piece
of the national spotlight.
Expectations are high all the
way around - and all three
schools feel like they have
something to prove.
"All three teams are on the
up-rise," Dickey says.
"Miami's talented this year.
Florida State still has a ton of
talent on their team. And we're
just as talented as either of
them. We've got guys that are
ready to turn this thing around."


Can't find the bass? Try catching


bluegills and shellcrackers instead


Bass anglers are still doing
pretty good considering the
weather we are having. This is
the time of year when the
water in shallower lakes has
really heated up, which sends
the larger bass deeper into the
weed beds seeking the relief
that only the shade can bring.
In deeper lakes, they hibernate
to the lower levels.
Good bass are still being
caught, but it takes a little
more work and knowhow to
tease a respectable size bass
into taking a lure.
With that in mind, it is a
good time to to give the
bluegills and shellcrackers a
shot. Folks at the nearby fish
camps tell me that bream fish-
ermen have been doing well
lately and crickets seem to be
the best bait for both bluegills
and shellcrackers. Other fel-
lows have been taking good
numbers of specks while
trolling small jigs.
Much like the bass, larger
bluegills like to stay close to
some type of cover like weeds
and pads. They also will go
deeper as the water heats up
while the smaller bluegills can
be found most anywhere in a
lake.
Bluegill fishing can be a lot
of fun, no matter how you fish
for them. When I was a young-
ster (that was a heck of a long
time ago), I fished with a cane
pole and a bobber. I caught a
lot of bluegills using night-
crawlers that I had caught the
night before.
If you have never hunted
nightcrawlers after dark with a
flashlight, you have missed out
on a lot of fun. Maybe they
would be hard to find in most
places here in south Florida
with all this sand. I know there

are none in my yard. It usually
takes a nice grassy lawn,
mowed a little short and damp-
ened by a recent rain to make
an ideal crawler haven.
Taking a half-gallon syrup
bucket and a good flashlight,
you had to slip quietly out into
the yard, treading very softly
so as not to startle any crawlers
that happen to be stretched out
sometimes nearly full length
on and in the grass. While they
have no eyes, they sense the
light when it hits them and
they zip back into their holes.
You had to be very quick to
catch them. Even when you
caught one, you had a tough
time pulling that very slick
wiggler out of the ground.
Four or five dozen worms
would usually suffice for a
good day's fishing using a cane
pole, a bobber and a small
hook. The crawler was just sort
of gobbed onto the hook. If it
was more than the hook could
hold, it was just torn in two to
better fit the hook. Bluegills
love worms in a big gob but
that is a waste of bait since


they just tear it apart, dispers-
ing it in the water where other
fish grab it without getting
near a hook.
Nightcrawlers are the choice
bait in more northern lakes, but
here the better bait for still
fishing is crickets, which you
can get at most bait shops.
Both bluegills and shellcrack-
ers will readily take them.
There are a lot of ways to
catch bluegills and shellcrack-
ers. A spinning rod with a light
line, dressed with a couple of
small hooks and a small weight
is an ideal method for bottom
fishing. Finding them in any
lake is very simple. Bait each
hook with a cricket, toss it out
in 6 to 10 feet of water. If you
get no action within a few min-
utes, move and try again. Due
to warmer waters, the fish may
be deeper, but you can find
them, so don't give up.
Fly fishing using dry flies
and rubber spiders is an excit-
ing way of taking these little
battlers. Dropping a rubber spi-
der on the water and letting it
lie there motionless can drive a
bluegill into attacking it with
real gusto. If that doesn't work,
just a slight twitch will usually
bring on an attack. The ensuing
is battle with the light tackle
can be breath taking.
Either way you fish, you just
can't help having a great day
when the bluegills and shell-
crackers are biting. And
believe me, now is the time to
go.

By SHAUN CONLIN

**** Score: 4 out of 5
While "Geist" starts out as a clunky
"Doom 3" knock-off - a first-per-
son shooter (FPS) drenched in sci-
ence-gone-awry horror-story storytelling -
and retains shades of said clunkiness
throughout (loose controls, inconsistent
frame-rate and a few outright glitches), it's
actually a fantastically novel puzzle-solving
adventure that happens to contain bouts of
clunky first-person shooting, but also much
more.
You mainly play as the ghost of a recent-
ly dead federal agent who starts out alive
and investigating one of those nefariously
secretive science facilities before being
dead. As a ghost, you have very little sway
over the environment save for floating
around, exploring,. ..,* . .. -.1' 1 i - i - and,

most anything can be possessed or inhabit-

Serious.
You need to scare living things before
their psyche is traumatized enough to
allow for possession, and rattling a bowl of
dog food is pretty spooky to a canine. Each
living thing scares differently and at vari-
ous thresholds, and therein lies the puzzle

ESRB Rating: Teen (13+) (violence)
r**** Score: 4 out of 5
A rip-roaring mix of circuitous rally racing and smash-up-derby
carnage, "FlatOut" steers just clear of typical by removing the
seatbelts from each car and adding a "ragdoll physics" element
more commonly seen in fighting and shooting games. Hence, as
you race around the various courses full of lush scenery and a gen-
erous abundance of obstacles - barrels, log piles, scaffolding -
you're bound to crash upon occasion (or, better, cause others to do
so), at which point you're treated to full-frontal ejections of your
presumably unconscious driver-self, launching out the window like
a ragdoll, as the aforementioned physics model sees fit; never the
side door. mind you, always the front windshield - which was
most likely (and conveniently) shattered some time ago, shortly
before your hood flew off and your bumper started dragging but
not before your engine caught fire.
It's a gimmick, sure, but a pretty funny one. There are even a few
gameplay modes where driver ejection is the whole point; games of
bowling and darts with a ragdoll. As yet, there's nothing going on

visually inspired, "Geist" also offers
moments of extreme violence interspersed
between many more moments of haunting
creepiness. It's a good horror story that
plays heavily on the novel and adventurous
possession angle.
The running-and-gunning-as-a-tempo-
rary-armed-guard bits are wholly deriva-
tive and feel like a cookie cutter, mind you,
but the methodology of "Geist" overall is
remarkably fresh and always intriguing.
Moreover, considering the scarcity of
GameCube titles to begin with, "Geist" eas-
ily sidles into the upper echelon.


online in the Xbox version and the PC version doesn't even offer
online racing (just LAN), which is inexplicable and flatly annoying
since "FlatOut" screams for multiplayer mayhem, but there you

Former Sebring Blue Streaks Kiko Vazquez (seated, left) and Ryan Williams (seated, right) announced
their intention to play baseball for the, University of Central Florida next season on Friday. They were
joined by (standing, from left). Sebring head coach Hoppy Rewis, Aida Vazquez, Tammy Williams, SHS
athletic director Terri Quarles and SHS assistant coach Wayne Gill.

Baseball


Williams, Vazquez to remain



teammates at Central Florida


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING -- They've been
teammates since they were 10
and best friends nearly as long.
They've been in a pair of Dixie
World Series, the high school
state playoffs and the slate's top
all-star exhibition, always as
teammates.
It's no surprise that Ryan
Williams and Kiko Vazquez
aren't eager to go their separate
ways.
The pair of former Blue
Streak stars and the NeiVcs-Si I
2005 Co-Players of the Year
made that official on Friday,
announcing that they would
both he playing baseball or the
University ol C('enral FIlorida
next season.
Vazquez, a power-hitting
first baseman. was the first to
catch the eye ofl II(.': coaches.
but it didn't take him long to
turn their attention to Williams.
Once one decided he wanted to
be a Golden Knight. it was
almost a forgone conclusionl the
other would follow.


"It made it a little easier ..."
Williams said, with the though
finished by Vazquez "... to
make a decision."
"It's going to be a lot easier
... trusting somebody you
already know than having a
roommate you don't know,"
said Vazquez, who hit .380 with
24 RBIs and a Highlands
County-leading nine home runs
despite being walked 57 per-
cent of the time. "Going up
there the first day of condition-
ing ... somebody's going to be
there with you."
"It's going to be fun. It's a
big challenge," added Williams,
who will switch from shortstop
to third base after leading the
county in hits (41), runs (38)'
and triples (eight) to go along
with five homers and 25 RBIs.
"You at least will have some-
body for a friend. You won't
have to go in there not knowing
anybody and try to make
friends."
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
said that built-in support system
will serve the duo well.


"Both of them have been
around enough I don't think
homesickness is going to get
them, so they'll do all right," he
said. "They can kind of feed off
each other. They've done it
their whole life, I don't know
why they'd stop now."
Rewis also said either one of
his former stars probably could
be successful at the next level
even if they didn't have each
other to lean on.
"They've got the skills and
they've got the work ethic. All
of us have a little God-given
talent and they probably got
more than most, but you've still
got to develop it. You've got to
have parents that will do it for
you and kind of take you and
