SEBRING - The good news
is that Hurricane Katrina is not a
major storm.
County Administrator Carl
Cool told the group of emer-
gency officials, department
heads and interested parties gath-
ered at the county commission
chamber Thursday afternoon that
most of the storm will pass to the
south of Highlands County.
Only the area around Venus is
in the wind cone, which has sus-
tained winds of 30 mph, and
gusts of 50 to 60 mph.
Katrina made landfall around
6 p ,m i. is expected to take 24
hours to' i. ,, Florida, delivering!
as much as a foot of water over
the weekend.
Katrina was expected to head
west after making landfall near
Fort Lauderdale.
"It's going to be a rainy, wet
and messy day," Cool said, "but
not a catastrophic storm."
Because the volume of rain
and gusty winds makes the roads
unsafe for school buses and the

students waiting to ride them,
The School Board of Highlands
County has canceled all classes
and extra-curricular events for
today. The district office is
closed as well.
South Florida Community
College also will be closed today.
This closing includes all campus-
es and off-site locations in
Highlands, DeSoto and Hardee
counties.
Private schools have followed
the school board's lead and will
be closed today too.
All three high school football
games have been postponed to
Monday night.
The Caladium Festival has
been canceled. As most vendors
travel a circuit, the event 'cannot
be rescheduled.
Eileen May, executive director
of the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce, states emphatically
that the festival will go on next
year.
Otherwise, it will be business
as usual today, with the courts
and all county offices open.

Tar fire sends two to hospital


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Two people
suffered severe burns
Wednesday from a fire in a
heated tank of tar.
SLacey Copeland, 34, owner
of Mid-Florida Portable
Toilets, and Donald Glessing,
71, both of Sebring, were
flown to Tampa General
Hospital. As of Thursday,
Copeland was in critical condi-
tion, and Glessing was in fair
condition.
According to the Division of
the State Fire Marshal, they
had second- and third-degree
bums on their heads, torsos
and upper arms. They were
injured when a flammable
vapor and air mixture ignited,
similar to an explosion. The
flame passes through the mix
at less than the speed of sound,
so there isn't the air pressure
usually found in an explosion,
but there is a large fireball.
Fire Investigator Gene
Walker called it a flash fire. It
happened at about 10:49 a.m.
Wednesday at Mid-Florida
Portable Toilets, 210
Commercial Place, off U.S. 98
in Sebring.
Copeland has a 5,000-gallon
tank that contains tar and has a
firebox set in the base of it. He
and others started a wood fire
from old pallets and pine tree
debris in the box to melt the
tar, Walker said.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County Fire Service Supervisor James Branca (left) and Emergency Management Director
Bill Nichols investigate a fire Wednesday at Mid-Florida Portable Toilets in Sebring. Two men were
airlifted to Tampa General Hospital.


Roofers use a similar
method to melt tar for roofing,
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols said.
Copeland was trying to melt
the tar enough to remove it
from the tank so he could use it
as temporary waste storage,
Walker said. Copeland had one
end jacked up and opened the
hatch, he said. Witnesses told
him smoke puffed out and


sucked back into the tank as it
heated up. Eventually, the
vapors found an ignition
source and exploded.
Copeland and Glessing were
10-15 feet from the tank, so the
flash caught them.
A Caterpillar mini-excava-
tor parked 40 feet away suf-
fered about $5,000 in fire dam-
age, Walker said. There was no
other structural loss and no


other injuries. It's been ruled
accidental, he said.
The tank apparently had fit-
tings in the firebox for gas or
propane heat. Walker said that
piping had nothing to do with
the event, since the residual tar
provided the fuel for the smoke
that flash-burned.

tion to those who call 385-1112.
Shelters will not be opened,
but sand bags will be available at
Sheriff Tower Road from 9 a.m.
to noon.
Flooding may be a problem in
low lying areas.
Lake Istokpoga, with a current
elevation of 38.4 feet, is not con-
sidered a danger as 39.5 feet is its
normal elevation, so there is
room for the volume of water.
Even so, the gates have been
opened to allow for run off.
Lake Okeechobee
levels a concern
Katrina will dump a lot of rain
on Highlands County, and some
wind, but that's all.
In Miami on Thursday, rainfall
and waves were already up, with
one to two feet of surge on top of
a possible two or three feet of
high tide. Its outer wind bands
are expected to hit the southern
part of Highlands County by
about 7 a.m. today.
Highlands County Emergency
Management Director ,Bill
Nichols said, based on computer

Wednesday

AVON PARK - A local
man died early Wednesday
night in a one-car wreck.
Jeremy Dustin
Breedlove, 22, of Avon
Park, was thrown from his
car after losing control on
South Avon Estates
Boulevard, and died at the
scene, Florida Highway
Patrol reported.
According to reports, he
was not wearing a seat
belt. He was transported to
the District 10 Medical
Examiner's office in
Lakeland. FHP reported
alcohol was involved in the
crash, but the medical
examiner won't have toxi-
cology results available for
several weeks.
The wreck took place at
12:05 a.m. Wednesday.
FHP reported Breedlove
was heading north in a
2000 Ford two-door at high
speed, veered to the left
and crossed the center
grass divider. He apparent-
ly overcorrected, and
veered to the right.
He over corrected again,
sending the car to the left,
and causing it to rotate
counter-clockwise.
Traveling sideways, the car
went into the center grass
divider again, heading
northwest.
The car hit a large tree
with its right ride, FHP
aid. It rotated around the
.ree and broke apart,
_ throwing Breedlove out of
the car.

becue planned for tonight

room of City Hall, 110 E.
Main St., to discuss a
recreational use agreement
with Avon Park Baseball
Inc.
Council

moves closer

to hiring

director
SEBRING - The
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council is getting
closer to having an execu-
tive director.
Chairman Bob Bullard,
Highlands County commis-
sioner, said the search
committee has roughly 20
applications, which it will
narrow down over the next
week to 10. Hopefully, the
final decision will be done
by mid- October.
Current Executive
Director Doug Leonard
will retire at the end of the


summer.

Ayvert,

Renfro to be

liaisons
SEBRING - The
School Board of Highlands
County has appointed
Wendy Renfro, school
board member, and Mike
Ayvert, director of business
operations for the school
district, to act as liaisons to
the Impact Fee Review
Committee.


By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Sun Room
Senior Center hasn't closed, but
some of its funding is on hold
until board members can
straighten out some matters.
The United Way Advisory
Board for Highlands County on
Wednesday froze funding for
the food program. Then, on
Thursday, the Highlands
County Hospital District Board,
at the request of Sun Room rep-
resentatives, took action to hold
a grant for the center's health
services until' issues are
resolved.
For now, The Sun Room
social center is open from 9
a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday and
Friday, and closed Thursday. It
has enough funding - $3,000-
$5,000 - for September's
activities, according to Richard
Swenson, founder, chief execu-
tive officer and board president.


"We wanted to have more
than a month's supply to stay
open for a month," he said.
"We're not where we need to
be, by a long shot."
There's not enough to plan
for more than a month in
advance," he said.
The clinic has enough private
donations, grants from both
hospitals and Medicare billifig
to stay solvent for now, accord-
ing to Linda Swenson,
Richard's wife and the clinic's
volunteer director and paid
manager. Allegedly, the Florida
Health Department will allow
the clinic to distribute the
remaining $15,000 in medica-
tion it has in stock, as long as
there is a doctor present.
Richard Swenson founded
The Sun Room Senior Center
Inc. in 1989 to serve social and
medical needs for seniors in
Highlands County. It now has
300 clients.


An audit of the 2003-2004
fiscal year by The NCT Group
Inc. accounting firm has raised
some questions. Apparently,
non-food items such as cat and
dog food, wine, razors and
shaving cream were purchased
out of the food fund. Also, some
contractors were paid in cash
for maintenance work, then Sun
Room checks were written to an
.individual to put in a private
account.
Linda Swenson said the
kitchen uses wine in cooking
and staff feeds animals at the
center, top.
As for the contractors, staff
usually hires Labor Finders of
Sebring, but had difficulty get-
ting contractors at one point, so
staff hired and paid people out-
side the normal process.
Since 2003-2004, it hasn't
happened again, she said, and
all contracts and payments have
been documented.


Toddler dies from drowning


News-Sun
SEBRING - A 3-year-old
boy found floating face down in
the family pool Tuesday
evening died Wednesday, just
hours after being taken off a
ventilator.
Police have identified the
child as Winston Giddens Jr.
As reported by the News-Sun
on Wednesday, the child's
mother, 32-year-old Vickey
Linsinbegler, had just gotten
him, his siblings and other fam-
ily members out of their above-
ground pool to go inside and


make dinner. According to
Sebring police, the boy slipped
back outside unnoticed and got
into the pool.
At the time, his father, 38-
year-old Winston Giddens Sr.,
was standing in front of their
home at 348 Hemlock Ave.,
talking with friends. By chance,
they wanted to see his new
pool, so he took them to the
backyard. That's when he found
his son.
He immediately pulled the
child from the pool and started
cardiopulmonary resuscitation,


then called 911. Highlands
County Emergency Medical
Services and Sebring Fire
Department arrived first, fol-
lowed by .the Sebring Police
Department.
The youngster was transport-
ed from Highlands Regional
Medical Center to Arnold
Palmer Hospital in Orlando
later Tuesday night. He died
Wednesday.
Apparently, Giddens and his
family had just installed the
pool Monday and filled it with
water Tuesday.

The Lake Placid Jaycees

Placid Elks Lodge.
May said the Caladium
Festival Committee will meet
next week and discuss this
year's event and future plans in
more detail, but she is firm in
stating that the Caladium
Festival will return next year.
Years ago the caladium festi-
val was scheduled for
September but was moved to
August because of the
inclement weather. Due to the
timing of the caladium harvest,
the festival can not really be
scheduled for earlier in the year.
This is only the second time
in 15 years that a caladium fes-
tival has been canceled. The
first time was in 1998 when
Hurricane Georges made its
way to Florida.


Still, United Way board
members voted Wednesday to
freeze $19,500 paid annually to
the center, except for the July
and August payments - total-
ing $3,250 - until concerns
over the audit are addressed.
"We don't want our seniors
going without this service,"
Cheryl Sharp, executive direc-
tor of United Way of Highlands
.County, said. "We (also) don't
want questions with the way
United Way funds are being
handled."
The Sun Room board met
Wednesday morning to discuss
the audit, but has not yet taken
action. Linda Swenson hopes to
have another meeting in two


weeks.
She told the hospital board
Thursday she wants to ask Dr.
Paula Thaqi, Highlands County
Health Department director, to
oversee clinic operations. If so,
The Sun Room could remain
under Chapter 110, Florida
Statutes, which allows
Medicare billing and billing for
all procedures. If not, it would
fall under Chapter 766, Florida
Statutes.
Chapter 766 would not allow
Medicare billing, and only
allows billing for medication
training and laboratory work.
Very few clinic services in
Florida are still governed under
Chapter 110, Linda Swenson
said.

Plans for Lake Placid Elementary on track


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Plans for the
expansion at Lake Placid
Elementary School continue on
schedule.
David Burnham, the school
district's coordinator of facili-
ties, told school board Tuesday
that the mechanical engineer


had completed 90 percent of the
drawings of the new building,
and an evaluation of possible
materials and methods of con-
struction has been done.
The new building will be
built with conventional cinder-
block construction and a light-
gauge truss system.


By Sept. 18, all construction
documents should be complete.
The original completion date
was set for July 31, 2006, but
school superintendent Wally
Cox wants that date pushed up
to July 15, in order to be sure of
completion by the start of the
2006-07 school year.
During its budget workshop,


the school board discussed
allotting more money to the
project to redesign the parent
pick-up and bus loop due to
traffic safety concerns.
A final decision, which
requires a vote, will be' made
during a regular school board
meeting in the future.


Roofing to Beat Summer Heat


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Cat on a hot tinl
roof? Not with KasselWood's
Ultra-cool steel roofing. Local
roofer Mark Storti, of Metal
Roofs of Florida, believes this
roofing system will catch on
quickly in Florida.
"The KasselWood roofs have
a 50 year warranty," said Storli.
" but the actual shingles will
last much longer than that."
The secret behind such a
warranty is the technology
behind the shingles.
KasselWood shingles are
coated with a Kynar500 finish
which incorporates energy effi-
cient pigments that help the
shingles cool quickly, resulting
in energy conservation.
"The emissivity (how long it
takes something to cool down
after heat has been applied) of
these shingles occurs really
quickly," said Storti. "If a cloud
passes over the sun they begin
to cpol off."
Florida heat is a big consider-
ation when installing a roof,


and not just for the workers
installing the roof during the
heat of the day.
"If you were to go into your
attic after the sun goes down, it
would still be hot at midnight,"
said Storti, "But with this kind
of roofing it will cool down to
the outside temperature."
The shingles are available in
many shades and have a wood
grain appearance that makes
them seem like natural cedar
shake.
Metal Roofs of Florida
installed the first KasselWood
roofs in the state of Florida
right here in Sebring.
Patrick Michaud owns the
first Sebring home to have
KasselWood shingles installed.
"The roof is not only attrac-
tive," said Michaud, "it can
withstand high winds like the
wind of last year's hurricane
season."
Another factor in Michaud
choosing a KasselWood roof
was the longevity.
"This is a 50-year roof," said
Michaud, " I have no doubt it


will outlive me."
According to the
Kasselwood Web site,
www.kasselwood.com, the dura-
bility of its product has been
tested intensely in order to
insure quality.
KasselWood attained the
highest classifications in scien-

Desert tortoise recov
Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - A
desert tortoise named Cactus is
moving more swiftly now after
having four bladder stones -
one as large as a baseball -
removed from his underbelly.
The 40-year-old tortoise at
the San Francisco Zoo returned
to public display this week after
undergoing surgery, in which
veterinarians cut into his shell,


tific testing for hail impact,
wind lifting, and wind-driven
rain resistance.
KasselWood roofs also meet
federal Energy Star guidelines,
as well as Green Build Council
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design guide-
lines.

ering from surgery
removed the bladder stones and
resealed the incision using
fiberglass.
The stones weighed a little
more than a pound - a lot for
an animal that normally weighs
eight pounds, zoo officials said.
Zoo officials said Cactus,
who's been living there since
1985, has been recuperating
nicely, although his underbelly
will take two years to heal.


John Meder returning to WWOJ


Morning talk
show host has
been recuperating
from Aug. 6 car
accident
SEBRING - Following an
car crash that put him in the
hospital for nearly two weeks,
99.1FM WWOJ morning host


John Meder will be returning to
the air on Monday.
"I'm getting pretty tired
being cooped up in here,"
Meder said from his home.
"I'm looking forward to being
back on the air.
The Cohan Radio Group has
been besieged by calls asking
about Meder's recovery and
when his fans could expect him
to return. ,,: . ... . .
Medbr has worked for the


station in different capacities
since 1986 and has become well
known for publicity stunts such
as sitting on billboards and
marathon .broadcasts in an
effort to raise money for chari-
ty.
He's still not fully recovered
from the crash. Meder's
kneecap was broken from the
force of the impact and be still
sports a cast from his ankle to,
mid thigh. I
"It's on his left leg, so he can


drive the station's truck," said
Cohan Radio President Peter
Coughlin, who loaned Meder
the vehicle until he could
replace his personal transporta-
tion.
Meder's classic red Camaro
was demolished when it hit a
tree near the intersection of
White Cedar and Queen Avenue
during on the morning of Aug.
6. ,
"The red blur is no .more,".
Meder lamented.

School district faces money woes


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - The School
Board of Highlands County is
facing difficult budget choices
due to the failure of the half
cent sales tax earlier this year.
For example, at Tuesday
night's workshop, board mem-
bers . discussed the need to
redesign the bus loop and par.
ent pick-up area at Lake Placid
Elementary School.
A redesign is considered crit-
ical due to the school's expand-
ed enrollment, and the resulting
increase in traffic.
They also discussed Lake
Placid High School's need for
an athletic track. Currently the
school has to schedule its meets
away from the campus because
it has no track.
While $80,000 has already
been dedicated to the project, it
is estimated another $250,000
will be needed in order to prop-
erly prepare the track's founda-
tion.
The Lake Placid Elementary
School's bus loop would cost
about $270,000.
The problem is there is not
enough money to do both,
because there is only $250,000

able in 2004-2005 two millage

On the one hand, members
were sensitive to the needs of
the high school.
"People are fired up about (a
Snew track)," school board
member Richard Norris said.
"They're tired of playing all
their track meets away."
On the other hand, safety
issues and constitutional man-
dates also concerned them.
"Yes, we need the track,"
board member Wendy Renfro
said, "but constitutionally we
cannot violate the class size
amendment. It's a tough choice
for me. We may have to put (the
track) on a back burner until we
have more funds. Classrooms,
core facilities and safety issues
should come first."
Board member J. Ned
Hancock was concerned about
not following through on the
track project. "If we have a
doable project, once you prom-
ise, you have to follow
through," he said, and added
that there had to be a way to do
at least part of it.
Board member Donna
Howerton agreed that the
money already allocated to the
track should remain so, but was
reluctant to add more money.

International referral
organization comes to
Central Florida
Business Network
International is a networking
organization specializing in
business referrals among mem-
bers.
"BNI is a great way for busi-
nesses to experience growth by
duplicating their marketing
efforts through word of
mouth," said Jason Trombley,
assistant director for the
Southwest Region.
BNI generated more than
3.3 million referrals for mem-
bers in 2004 alone, which
resulted in more than $1.5 bil-
lion worth of business being
done. "This is the type of lead
generation we hope to bring to
the area," Trombley said.
BNI was founded in 1985 by
Dr. Ivan R. Misner. Misner is
the author of "The World's Best
Known Marketing Secret and
Masters of Networking."
BNI is currently setting up
chapters throughout the central
Florida area. For locations, call
Trombley at 452-0788 or visit

Stewart said. It could hit any-
where from Pensacola to
Jacksonville on the east coast
within four days.
He believes Highlands
County will still see plenty of
rain, even long after the winds
have gone, thanks to eastern
feeder bands.
There is a tropical wave just
over the Windward Islands.
When Katrina turns north, it
may pull that storm system into
southern Florida, dumping even
more rain into the area, accord-
ing to Stewart.

Donating personal hygiene products


Courtesy photo
April Adams, president of the Kiwanis Club of Sebring, and Dennis Domisiw, administrative assis-
tant of Magnolia Retirement Home in Sebring, carry in boxes collected from members of the
Kiwanis Club of Sebring and the American Red Cross. The boxes contain personal hygiene prod-
ucts along with some clothing to be donated to the seniors who live at the Magnolia Retirement
Home. Many of the residents are in desperate need of clothing and basic supplies due to a very lim-
ited government subsidy. The retirement home currently has 10 female and 27 male residents. The
project is just one more way the Kiwanis Club of Sebring is helping the community. Anyone inter-
ested in Kiwanis or the Magnolia Retirement Home Project can contact Adams at 385-1325.


TAR
Continued from 1A
James Branca thought gas or
propane heat would have been
better, since it might have been
easier to control. When DeSoto
City and Lorida volunteer fire
departments arrived on the
scene, it was hard to tell just
what was on fire, he said.
Once they realized what was
burning, firefighters sprayed


master streams on the tank to
cool it and on the fire box to
douse the heat source, Branca
said.
Fire crews hooked a pumper
truck to a "dry hydrant," also
called a drafting hydrant, con-
nected to a nearby retention
pond, and drew water from
there to fight the fire. Branca
said as a fire inspector, he
would allow those as an alterna-
tive water source in areas with-
out a large water ditrinbutiin
system.


The fire was out by 12:24
p.m., Branca said.
Nichols said heating tar is
potentially dangerous because
tar can reach an ignition tem-
perature and start burning itself.
Firefighters had to be careful,
since water and hot tar don't
react well together.
One firefighter was over-
come with the heat, Branca
said, but was immediately eval-
uated by Emergency Medical
Services and given rest and
x~ iter. ""

Retiring pastor lauded for 'faith, fidelity and friendship'


The Rev. Winfred
White gets
'roasted' as he
ends 30 years of
service to First
Baptist Church of
Sebring
By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING
F idelity. Faith.
Friendship. These are
Winfred White's
greatest assets as
minister of music at First
Baptist Church; said the pastor,
the Rev. Dr. James Henry.
"Living the life of faith
before the congregation," is the
mark of White's body of work,
Henry said. "At the bottom line
it's not what you do, but who
you are. And he's a person of
faith."
He also has been "a good
friend" to Henry, the pastor
said.
White has served the church
for 30 years. Sunday will be
his last day. The church will
recognize him Sunday morning
during worship and during a
reception after the 6:30 p.m.
service.
Serving in the same church
for three decades is "most
unusual, which says a lot for
God's calling in his life" with
all the joys and challenges in
ministry, Henry said.
As for White, he said "serv-
ing where the Lord wants me
to serve" is his greatest
achievement.
White has ministered in
many capacities - from minis-
ter of youth to music and sen-
ior adults. He even became the

church's administrator - the
sole staff member - during a
time when First Baptist lacked
a pastor. That was his greatest
challenging, he said.
He grew up in a church set-
ting and became a Christian at
age 12 during a revival meet-
ing at Mount Carmel Baptist
Church in Alabama.
His call to the ministry was
gradual, he said. His pastor
asked White to perform the
benediction. Afterward the pas-
tor said, "This is a man that
God is going to use some day."
The same pastor said the
same thing during another
benediction call White per-
formed - only this time the
minister was.serting in- a
church in Tennessee. This


impressed White deeply.
' In yet another church in
Alabama, another pastor asked
White to lead in the singing.
White continued and decided
to work and earn his bachelor's
of arts degree in music at
, Jacksonville State University.
"I worked at Goodyear Tire
Co. from 11 at night to seven
in the morning," and went to
school during the day.
He met his wife, Sandra,
through a friend who was
Sandra's roommate, when she
also was attending Jacksonville
State University.,Sandra is
choir director at Sebring High
School and has no plans to
retire. Throughout the years,
S-she-also has served as piano.;a.:
and organ accompanist at the


church.
Winfred also graduated from
The New Orleans Baptist
Theological Seminary.
In the 40-plus years Winfred
has served in the ministry, four
of them were in Alabama:.Mt.
Carmel, College Heights,
Paden and Forest Lake.
He had to take a tremendous
cut in pay when he left
Goodyear to go to Paden. "But
it was well worth it."
The couple plans to stay in
their at First Baptist. If the
church so desires, Sandra will
remain as the accompanist.
"The biggest asset has been
Sandra. She's just been a
tremendous person," White

Congregation
treats retiring
pastor to fond
send-off
By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING - When
Kathryn Smith found out the
new music minister of First
Baptist Church was from
Alabama, she thought, "Oh,
my, he.'s going to need
someone to tell him what to
do."
Smith further explained,
"And ever since then, he's
never done what I've told
him."
She got her first glimpse.
of the Rev. Winfred White
and his family - his wife,
Sandra, and their two chil-
dren, Richie, who was 11 at
the time and Allison, 6,
when she picked them up at
the Orlando International
Airport.
She confessed, "Well
basically I just like aggravat-
ing Winfred."
Smith added during a
roast dedicated to White
that he has been a blessing
to the church and to her
family. White, 65, will retire
Sunday after serving the
church for 30 years.
"He's brought the whole
church family through some
really rough times," Smith
said. "There has been more
than one time when he
served as the whole enchila-
da without-complaint from
him and none from the con-
gregation."
Luke Brooker, a member
of the choir, said. "Kathryn
you've got a lot of years on
me."

Pentagon orders SEND-OFF
two infantry Continued from 9A
khatflinne c IrinI


&PaLLallUll* LEg' I


Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The
Pentagon has ordered 1,500
additional troops to Iraq to pro-
vide security in advance of two
upcoming votes, the military
announced Wednesday.
Two infantry battalions from
the 82nd Airborne Division
will deploy to Iraq before the
scheduled Oct. 15 referendum
on the proposed constitution,
and remain through the
December national elections,
officials said.
They will join the 138,000
U.S. troops already there. The
battalions are expected to
remain in Iraq for 120 days.
The military anticipates an
increase in violence in Iraq in
advance of the elections, with
insurgents opposed to the U.S.-
backed government trying to
disrupt the process.
The Pentagon has temporari-
ly increased the size of the
force in Iraq twice before polit-
ical milestones - the June
2004 transfer of sovereignty
and the January elections. Lt.
Col. Barry Venable, a Pentagon
spokesman, said those deploy--
ments helped limit the effec-
tiveness of the insurgent cam-
paign.

Drink water

during exercise
Don't let the dog days of
summer stop you from exercis-
ing and don't let the exercise
dry you- out. Drinking fluids
before, during and after exer-
cise is the key to peak perform-
ance, according to GNC's in-
house nutritionist Rachel Jones
M.S., R.D.
"During an hour of intense
exercise, an athlete can sweat
out four cups or more of
water," Jones said. "Without
proper hydration, that athlete
can get cramps or lose focus
and energy."
So how do you keep out of
the dehydration zone?
* Drink at least 16
,ounces of fluid two hours
.. before exercise and 6-12
ounces of fluid every 15 min-
utes during exercise.
* Weigh yourself before
and after exercise to determine
the amount of water you lose or
your "sweat rate." You'll need
to replace each pound with
about two cups of water or
sports drink.
* Check your urine. It
should be clear or very light if
you're well hydrated.
The best sports drinks, Jones
said, will contain electrolytes
such as phosphate, chloride,
potassium and sodium that help
to keep your body's fluids in
balance. Added carbohydrates
will supply energy to working
muscles or replace what has
been lost during activity.
Sports drinks can be pow-
ders that you mix yourself or
ready-to-drink bottled drinks.
Keep your sports drink cold
and choose a flavor that you
like because it will help you to
drink more. GNC carries a vari-
ety of products, such as Pro
Performance Quick Fuel and
Pro Performance Hydro Pro.
For more information on
how you can adequately
hydrate your body, visit the
GNC in Sebring at 901 U.S. 27,
Suite 49, or visit

any funny stories to tell about
Winfred because it's no fun
being under him in choir practice
- especially if you're in the
tenor section. You know, the
sopranos never mess up, the
altos only very rarely. The bass-
es occasionally, but the tenors
catch it every time."
White has performed many
personal favors for church mem-
bers. He married the Smiths'
daughter in the family home. He
ministered to Kathryn and her
husband, Ferrell, during their
surgeries. In addition, he was
the first person Brooker saw
when Brooker awoke from his
quadruple bypass surgery.
Andrew' Bible tattled on
White, who also served as a
chaperone with the youth on
mission trips many years ago.
Bible said White snores. "A
music minister's snore has to
be in tune," Bible said with a
chuckle.
Two of the youths at the time,
Steve Smith and Robert O'Hern,
decided they would tape White's
snoring during a trip to
Pascagoula, Miss. Said Bible::
"And it was around midnight
when they got ready. And he
went 'zzzzzzzzz, Steven and
Robert go to.bed'."
A teary-eyed Kathy Haley ded-
icated Aug. 18, the day of the
roast, as "Winfred White Day"-in
Sebring. Since age 13 Haley had
been in White's youth group
when he also served in that
capacity.
Mary Alice McCall, the wife of
a former First Baptist pastor,
praised White and his wife,
Sandra, who also serves as
accompanist and director of the
choir at Sebring High School.
"Sandra and Winfred always
made us do our best."
She remembered when the

choir sang in a plywood flag to
celebrate patriotic holidays.
"And I don't know why, but some
of us were picked to be bright
stars and some of us were
picked to be broad stripes."
The Rev. Jay McCall, Mary
Alice's husband, also praised
White. "When I think of Winfred
White, I think of integrity. He is
such a spiritually dynamic man.
Winfred White has always
walked straight as an arrow and
has many, many talents.
"One thing he doesn't know
to do is to blow his own horn. He
does so much of his leadership
in the background."
McCall joked about the time
30 years ago when the music
minister had more than one
responsibility. "They not only
wanted him to be the minister of
music, but the minister of edu-
cation and the minister of youth
and a minister to the senior
adults. And to train the deacons
and to train the church council
and to meet with all the commit-
tees and all this sort of thing."
One of the duties of the for-
mer minister of music was to

mow the grass and First Baptist
had plenty of it, said McCall.
"So, the grass kept growing. And
it got higher and higher and
higher," McCall said.
"Finally, some of the men
from the church couldn't stand it
any longer. So, they came to
Winfred and they said, 'Winfred,
did you notice that the grass is
growing.' And he said, 'Yes, I
noticed that.'
"And they said, 'Well, did you
notice that it's gotten pretty
high?' And he said, 'Yes, I
noticed that.'
"And they said, 'Well, we'll
just be plain with you. The for-
mer.minister of music always
cut the grass. Did you know
that?' And he said, 'Yes, I did.'
"And they said, 'Well?' And he
said, 'Well, I called the former
minister of music and he said he
wasn't interested in coming
back and doing that any more.' "
The final speaker, the Rev. Dr.
James Henry, pastor of the
church, thanked White for his
personal contributions. "You
know, pastors need friends
sometimes. There's times when
pastors need someone to sit
down and talk with. When it all
comes down, it comes down to
friendship, and Winfred has
always been a friend to me -
and always will continue to be."
White had his chance to
respond. "You all have been
very kind. I know a lot of things
that could have been said that
you didn't say."
He continued teasing the
choir: "But, I will say I didn't say
anything to you tenors that you
didn't deserve. We love all of
you so much. The 30 years have
been really fast because this
church has really been a won-
derful church. Thank you so
much for being able to serve
here."


PASTOR
Continued from 9A
Throughout the years the
Whites 'have been able to rear
their two children to adulthood
in the church and see them rear
the Whites' four grandchildren.
Their son, Riche, has two:
Angela, 13, and Laura, 9.
Allison White Twigg, their
daughter, also has two:
Meredith, 4, and Janey, 3.
As he looks back upon his
service, he said he has no


regrets. "The people and work-
ing with the gre the greatest
joy. The most wonderful thing
in working for a church for 30
years is seeing the youth grow
up and take places of leader-
ship."
He intends to pursue his hob-
bies of fishing, yard work, golf
and playing with his grandchil-
dren. In his retirement he plans
to go "where the Lord leads and
see what the Lord has in mind."
Any advice to his successor?
"Just love the people and
they'll love you."

News-Sun
AVON PARK - Brandon Groves of Avon
Park is one of several students across the state to
get an early indication of how the Student
Achievement Test procedure really works.
As a seventh-grader at Avon Park Middle
School, the now-13-year-old took the test earlier
this year, scoring 530 out of 560 in math. His
score did not include the 22 questions he left
unanswered due to time constraints.
His total score was 970, ranking him in the top
61 percent in the nation and top 65 percent in the
state.
Brandon Groves attended the Florida
Recognition Ceremony at University of South


Florida/New College of Florida in Sarasota this
summer. The event was attended by his mother,
Brenda Dick Groves of Avon Park, his brother,
Preston; aunts Darlene Dick and Kathy Johnson,
and cousin, Garrett Dick.
Brandon Groves also is planning to take a class
in Greek mythology during Scholar Weekend in
October at New College. During the summer of
2006, he plans to attend Duke University for a
college course in marine, biology.
Brandon is the son of Brenda Dick Groves of
Avon Park and Cliff Groves of Grand Cayman,
British West Indies. He attends Avon Park Middle
School.'

Carter opposed
to moving
Habitat.
headquarters
Associated Press
ATLANTA - Former.
President Jimmy Carter has
expressed strong objection to
possible plans by Habitat for
Humanity International to
move its headquarters out of
Americus.
Habitat for Humanity is
considering relocating its
headquarters, saying
Americus, 116 miles south of
Atlanta, is too far from a
major airport and that execu-
tives might balk at living in a
small town.
But Carter, the group's
most prominent volunteer, has
asked to address Habitat's
board before it makes a deci-
sion to move.
"I would look on such a
decision as a violation of
mutual commitments made
over the years, with a damag-
ing effect on Habitat's reputa-
tion and effectiveness," Carter
said Wednesday in a letter to
Habitat's board of directors.
Carter's letter countered the
idea that Habitat would be
better off in a large city, say-
ing that several large corpora-
tions are based in small cities.
"The claim that a metropol-
itan location would improve
corporate management is fal-
lacious," Carter said.
"Personally, if it comes down
to a choice among several
potential Habitat executives to
be employed in the future, I
would choose one who pre-
ferred life in South Georgia to
those who might insist on an
urban existence.",
Chris Clarke, Habitat's sen-
ior vice president for commu-
nications, said in a statement
that the organization is devel-
oping a strategic plan that
"will include various recom-
mendations on how we can
more efficiently and effective-
ly serve an ever-growing
number of families in need."
As the most famous volun-
teer for the Christian home-
building non-profit, Carter
and his wife, Rosalynn, spend
a week each year helping
build Habitat houses. The for-
mer president's hometown of
Plains is just nine miles from
Americus.

State: 1,200
truck drivers
could have fake
licenses
Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE -
About 1,200 truck drivers
could unknowingly be on the
road with fake commercial
licenses, state investigators
said after a raid at a driving
school.
David Luck, 37, and Arthur
G. Hammonds, 49, two pro-
prietors of the commercial
licensing school Truck Driver
Placement, were arrested
Wednesday. Both were
charged with unlawful
issuance of a driver's license
and organized schemes to
defraud.
Both were being held on
$50,000 bond, and each face
up to five years in prison. It
was not known if either had
an attorney.
The school, which opened
in 2003, had submitted to the
state a road test that they
claimed included exiting and
merging onto interstate high-
ways, among other maneu-
vers, officials said.
But the actual test was a
drive around the block, said
investigators from the state
attorney's office and Florida
Highway Patroi who posed as
students at the school for sev-
eral months.
About 1,200 truck drivers
would be advised to retake a
state test, Assistant State
Attorney Siegel said.
"They may not have had


any reason to question it, but
based on the case of our
investigator, they should have
known," he said.


One investigator failed the
test but still received a license
certificate, Siegel said.

Coast Guard
suspends
search for
missing Cubans
Associated Press
MIAMI - The Coast
Guard suspended its search
Wednesday for 31 Cubans
believed thrown into the
Straits of Florida when their
boat capsized during an
apparent smuggling 'run to the
United States.
No victims or survivors
were found other than three
people rescued Sunday by a
merchant vessel north of
Matanzas, Cuba, according to
the Coast Guard. Those sur-
vivors, two women and a
man, were being treated in
Cuba for burns and dehydra-
tion after five days at sea.
The survivors and Cuban
border agents told U.S. offi-
cials that 14 people were ini-
tially able to cling to the hull
of the overturned speedboat
after it turned over Aug. 16.
Eleven of those eventually
drifted away, leaving the three
who had life jackets.
The Coast Guard found an
overturned 28-foot boat about
16 miles from the three sur-
vivors' location and towed it
to Key West. The boat is reg-
istered in Florida but investi-
gators were still trying to
determine if it was the one
used in the smuggling
attempt.
Lt. Cmdr. Chris O'Neil, a
Coast Guard spokesman, said
at least 200 people are known
to have died in attempts to
reach the United States by sea
in the past five years. Many
more have likely perished
whose identities are not
known to U.S. officials.

SEC filing: Beer maker

settled with Maris'

family for $120 million


Payout ends
defamation
lawsuit against
Anheuser-Busch
By MIKE SCHNEIDER
Associated Press Writer
ORLANDO - Anheuser-
Busch has agreed to pay at least
$120 million to the family of
baseball legend Roger Maris to
settle a defamation lawsuit and
other litigation, according to
documents filed Wednesday.
The settlement was reached
Tuesday as jurors in Gainesville
were about to announce a ver-
dict in the defamation lawsuit
involving the family's beer dis-
tributorship, but the amount
wasn't disclosed until the com-
pany filed documents with the
Security and Exchange
Commission.
The settlement was reached
after eight years, three trials and
millions of dollars in legal fees.
Anheuser-Busch spokesman
Rick Oleshak said he couldn't
comment on the settlement. But
a spokesman for the Maris fam-
ily's attorneys, Tom
McNicholas, said the actual set-
tlement was higher and called
the $120 million "only part of
the settlement." He declined to
comment further.
McNicholas wouldn't com-
ment further, nor say what per-
centage of the settlement would
go to attorneys.
The settlement encompasses
the defamation lawsuit and a
$50 million jury award that the
Marises had won against the
nation's largest brewer in 2001
for ending their beer distribu-
torship contract in 1997. That
award had been tied up on
appeal.
Based on the filing, Tom
Leritz, an analyst with Argent'
Capital in St. Louis said, "I
don't think it's going to nega-
tively impact the company."
The agreement was
announced Tuesday as a
Gainesville jury reached a ver-
dict in the three-week trial after
two days of deliberations. The

verdict was immediately
sealed, but jurors later said they
had decided to award the Maris
family compensatory damages
but not punitive damages.
Reached by telephone on
Wednesday, juror Mabel
Johnson said the jury's award
was between $90 million and
$100 million.
"I'm really happy for them.
I'm really happy that we didn't
have to say," Johnson, 50, a lay-
away manager at Wal-Mart,
said of the Maris family.
Neither side disclosed terms
of the settlement Tuesday, but
the Maris family had been seek-
ing $250 million in compensa-
tory damages and up to $5 bil-
lion in punitive damages.
Maris' relatives accused the
brewer of defamation after
company officials publicly said
the family's distributorship was
deficient and sold repackaged,
out-of-date beer. The family
claimed in court that the brewer
plotted to destroy their reputa-
tion as a part of a larger scheme
to seize the best-performing
distributors for Busch family
relatives and friends. Anheuser-
Busch denied the allegation.
"The resident smart person
down at Anheuser finally said
'Enough,"' said Juli Niemann,
an analyst with RT Jones in St.
Louis. "It shouldn't have hap-
pened and now it has come to
an end, so I'm sure they're all
collectively breathing a sigh of
relief."
The legal fight between
Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. and
the Maris family had consumed
eight years, three trials and mil-
lions of dollars in legal fees.
The company had given Roger
Maris and his brother, Rudy, the
distributorship after the slugger
ended his career in 1968 with
the St. Louis Cardinals, which
it then owned.
Roger Maris, who died in
1985, held the single-season
home run record for 37 years
after he hit 61 in 1961 for the'
New York Yankees.

Conference teaches local


residents inclusion matters'


Individuals from Visions ADT Inc. recently attended the confer-
ence "Inclusion Matters" at the Fort Lauderdale Harbor Beach
Marriott Resort & Spa.
The three day statewide conference on community inclusion for
individuals with developmental disabilities, families and the pro-
fessionals who support them was sponsored by the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on
Developmental Disabilities and the Florida Developmental
Disabilities Council Inc.
Barbara Cook, executive director at Visions explained,
"Inclusion is about all of us. It's about what matters in life, and how
every person can achieve personal goals, satisfaction and belong-
ing in the community. This conference is about individuals with
developmental disabilities, their families and the professionals who'
work with them every day."
Beth Blanchard, an individual who attends Visions noted, "It
was a great learning experience. I learned about independent liv-
ing, getting a job and how anybody can do it if they don't give up."
Blanchard's mother, Kathy Pontious, also attended the conference.
Tony Bock and his mother, Janice, attended the conference. She
summed it up by saying, "It was a very inspirational experience.
We learned about feelings, experiences and accomplishments of
those with disabilities. I also gained information regarding jobs and
housing. The recreational tennis session was especially neat. Tony
got to play tennis with another girl in a wheelchair. The dance was
fun to attend because everyone was included. Inclusion really does
matter."
The conference covered topics from "Innovative Medicaid
Programs that Support Self-Direction in the Community" to
"Voices of Friendship: The Barriers and the Strategies for
Developing Social Relationships." Topics ranged from voting,
employment, health, wellness, aging, guardianship to communica-
tion, self-determination, transportation and issues related to barrier

Toyota Camry on leading sales pace again


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
The Toyota Camry is at it again.
The top-selling car in the United States
for seven of the last eight years, Camry
is outselling all competitors so far this
year, with more than 60,000 sales tallied early in
calendar 2005.
This is some 15,000 sales ahead of America's
No. 2 best-selling car, the Honda Accord, and
more than double the sales of Chevrolet's
Malibu sedan which, like the Camry and
Accord, is a mid-size auto.
For 2005, the Camry front styling is updated
with a new grille and headlamps for a more
prominent appearance, while circular lighting
elements jazz up the tail-lamps.
A new center console and, in some models,
new chrome-colored trim pieces inside as well
as the addition of steering wheel audio controls
and new seat fabrics give the interior a more
expensive look.
Also in 2005, four-cylinder Camry cars get a
five-speed automatic, improving acceleration
and fuel economy.
Safety is upgraded, too, with antilock brakes
now standard on all Camry cars and stability
control available for the first time on four-cylin-
der models, not just those with a V6.
Starting manufacturer's suggested retail price,
including destination charge, is $18,735 for a
base 2005 Camry, which has a four-cylinder
engine and a manual transmission.
A Camry with the automatic transmission
starts at $19,565, and the starting price for a
2005 Caniry with V6 is $23,070. The V6 comes
with an automatic only..
The 2005 Accord sedan starts at $16,810 for a
four-cylinder model with manual transmission
and $17,610 with a five-speed automatic. A V6-
powered 2005 Accord sedan starts at $24,465
and comes only with an automatic.
Meanwhile, the starting MSRP, including des-
tination charge, for a 2005 Malibu sedan is
$19,825 for a four-cylinlder model and $21,890
for a V6. All Malibus come with a four-speed


automatic.
There are four trim levels -
H. ' .- - jt -


standard LE. SE


17 I IL


Wheelbase Communications
The 2005 Toyota Camry


and XLE - and three engines offered for the
2005 Camry.
The XLE is the luxury-appointed model with
leather-trimmed seats, moonroof, garage and
gate openers and power front seats among the
items that are standard.
The SE is.positioned as the sportiest Camry,
with a firmer suspension, different tires and '
wheels and blackout grille differentiating it from
other Camry cars. The SE also is the model that
can be optioned up to a more powerful V6 - a
3.3-liter with 225 horsepower and 240 foot-
pounds of torque.
But the 210-horsepower, 3-liter, twin-cam V6
in the test Camry - a mid-range LE - worked
well, too.
The five-passenger car started up quietly,
merged into traffic competently and shifted
smoothly. It accelerated pleasantly on the high-
way, even while carrying four adults. Torque is
220 foot-pounds and comes on by 4,400 rpm
compared with the peak torque point of 3,600
rpm in the racier Camry SE.
But the Camrv LE with the smaller V6 didn't
j** r~ /^*


feel sluggish, though I find it odd that the larger,
3.3-liter engine has a higher fuel economy rating
by 1 mile a gallon: 21/29-mpg for city and high-
way driving, respectively, while the 3-liter V6 is
rated at 20/28 mpg.
But consumers get the best fuel mileage in a
Camry with 2.4-liter four cylinder. It's rated at a
commendable 24/34 mpg with the five-speed
automatic transmission. This is up from 23/32 in
last year's Camry with four-speed automatic.
The Camry's ride is mostly cushioned, with
many potholes and road bumps not bothering
passengers too much. Steering doesn't feel
sporty, but it's not loose or wallowy, either.
The Camry is a front-drive model whose road
handling is predictable.
But drivers can induce front-drive oversteer,
or a plunging/plowing sensation, if the Camry is
pushed hard into comers.
This can be lessened by the now-more-readi-
ly-available electronic stability control, which
was part of a $1,300 option package on the test
car.
Note the size of the Camr' trunk: 16.7 cubic
*"�! .


feet. This is larger than the 14 cubic feet in the
Accord and the 15.4 cubic feet in the Malibu
sedan.
The Malibu in hatchback form, however,
offers 22.8 cubic feet of storage space with back
seats folded.
Intriguingly, the best-selling Camry doesn't
include several features that have been in the
news lately as hot automotive trends. There's no
all-wheel-drive option. Nor is the Camry slated
to move from front-drive to a more perform-
ance-oriented rear-wheel drive configuration.
There's also no tall ride height in this tradi-
tional sedan, so pasengers spend time looking
at the backs of pickup trucks and sport utility
vehicles.
Officials at competing automakers complain
the Camry's styling is mainstream, not ground-
* breaking like that of the Chrysler 300C.
No matter. After more than 20 years in the
U.S. market, the Camry has become "the plat-
inum standard in mid-size family sedans," as
Don Esmond, Toyota Division senior vice presi-
dent and general manager, puts it.
Consumers seem to know the Carnry has been
a leader, and not just in sales.
Last year it was named a "Best Bet" in The
Car Book 2004 and earned a "Best Cars for
Families" title from AAA and Parents magazine.
But it has been several years since the Carnry
was among the top three mid-size car winners in
J.D. Power and Associates' Initial Quality
Study. Indeed, the Chevy Malibu has been in
that list for the last three years.
Still, the 2005 Camry is a recommended
model of Consumer Reports, which gives the car
an "excellent" rating for predicted reliability.
Sixty-two percent of Camry buyers are
women, and buyers' median age is 55, Toyota
reports.
Seventy-two percent are married, with about a
quarter having children under age 18 in the
household.
Nearly half of Camry buyers are college edu-
cated, and median household income is just over
$64.000.

Men need to

speak up

about abuse
Male victims of domestic
violence are seeking to
make the "Violence Against
Women Act," gender neu-
tral, giving equal protection
for victims while providing
services based on need, not
gender.
The organization.
"Battered Men," states that
$4 billion is allocated for
female victims of domestic '
violence. Zero .dollars for
the 835,000 male victims.
Others may argue that the
only way that male victims
will be acknowledged is
when the victims them-
selves speak up about the
problem, instead of ignoring
it or pretending that they are
not victims.
Experts say men remain
quiet and stay in abusive
relationships due to the fol-
lowing:
* Reluctance to give up
the good.
* Making excuses for
them such as, "She is really
a fabulous person ... well
most of the time ... she is a
wonderful mother and cooks
great meals. She doesn't
mean to be abusive, it's
PMS. Problems at work are
affecting her."
* Shame is another fac-
tor. "What will people think
if they knew I allowed a
woman to beat me. I would
be called a sissy and then
some."
* Self-worth, "I probably
deserve it."
* Denial, "I can handle
it. It's not-that bad ... all I
have to do is ignore her and
return later when she calms
down."
The Battered Men
Helpline? asked
* Are you frightened of
your partner's temper?
* Are you often compli-
ant because you are afraid to
hurt your partner's feelings?
* Are you often afraid of
your partner's anger?
* Do you have the urge
to rescue your partner?
* Do you find yourself
apologizing to her or others
for behavior when she mis-
treats you?
* Have you been kicked,
pushed, shoved, punched,
spit at, had things thrown at
you?
* Have you blamed the
issues and things around her
for her behavior?
You need help.

RCMA Christmas card


designs on display


By RACHEL PEACOCK
I' Sun'
he Redlands Christian Migrant Association
is spreading the Christmas spirit and it's
only August.
Ten new card designs for their statewide
Christmas card fund-raiser are on display
at the association's Highlands County cen-
ters. The colorful designs were created last
Christmas season by children who participated in their
childcare programs.
The RCMA centers in Highlands County are at
1417 S. Verona Ave.. Avon Park; 121 N. Highlands
Ave., Sebring; or 124 Washington St., Lake Placid.
The design is on the front of the card and the first
name of the child who created it and their city appears
on the back. Inside, a traditional holiday greeting is
featured.
,"It is grdat for kids to design cards and see their art-
work being sold," Judy Brill, the association's com-
munity relations assistant, said from the main office in
Immokalee.
The centers also will have brochures that list each
design package and price. The same information now


Students show off their Christmas card designs they recent

The annual fund-raiser, that was
started seven years ago, usually brings in $13,000- RCMA
$15,000 each year. Last year's total fell to about RC a
$8,000 because of the hurricane season. no one was thinking
"With everyone in hurricane recovery mode, even about Christmas," Matt Bok a -
ation director of community relations, said. 'This year,
, . I1l - s we hope to make up for that I.
Geneva Hayes, the association local area service
support, said portions of the money raised will go
directly into the Highlands County centers.
Highlands County has nine different associatioA
centers that serve almost 500 area children of migrant
farm workers and rural low-income families. They
provide childcare services that include head-start pro-
grams and teen parent centers.
"We are really going to push this year to make sure
A we get at least one design in there next year," Hayes
said, adding that she plans to start submitting designs
early.
There are several card packages people can choose.
This year, for the first time, Christmas stationary,
which includes 25 designed sheets and envelopes, will
be offered for $15.
The general Christmas cards come in packages of
10 for $15, but variety packs, that feature designs
from past years, will be sold in sets of 15 for $15.
In addition, there are 10 "exclusive" designs for
corporations to select. These designs require a mini
mum order of 100 cards, because the unique designs
won't be sold to anyone other business.
"Dundee Citruis has called several times to check if
the brochures were ready because they want to have
first choice," Brill said.
Also, two new designs foaear 'round note cards
are available in sets of 10 for)12. '
Z5 The Christmas card fund-ra�ng idea was initiated
by DUDA, a Florida-based leading produce corpora-
tion. Susan Howard, DUDA's director of corporate
communications, wante4)o create a fundraiser that
would help the agricult il industry. Ahe immediately
thought of the association.

DIVERSIONS


'Brothers Grimm' is plagued by inconsistency


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
AP Movie Critic
There's no happy ending for "The
Brothers Grimm," or a happy beginning or
middle, for that matter.
That's the one consistent thing in Terry
Gilliam's latest film, which is plagued by
inconsistency.
Certainly, you expect some weirdness
walking into one of Gilliam's movies. After
all, this is the man who crafted the "Monty
Python" animation, who has brought fan-
tastical figures to the screen as the director
of films including "The Adventures of
Baron Munchausen" and "Fear and
Loathing in Las Vegas." This is the man
whose famously failed attempt at making a
wildly ambitious Don Quixote movie was
the subject of its own documentary, "Lost
in La Mancha."
But those films had the benefit of a sin-
gular vision. Working from a script by
Ehren Kruger, writer of "The Ring"
movies, Gilliam is all over the place here.
It's as if he doesn't know what he wants his
film to be. A loopy farce? A lavish costume
piece? A high-energy action film? At times
it even feels as if this is Gilliam's anti-war
film, framed within the context of a
comedic fairy tale.
In an enchanted forest outside a German
village in 1798, trees crawl and branches
snarl, and a wolf turns into a man before
turning back into a wolf again, but you can
find your way out of the darkness by lick-
ing the head of the wise Grandmother Toad.
(Though for all the film's elaborate preten-
sions, the effects look unexpectedly
schlocky; that was true at times in Gilliam's


'THE BROTHERS GRIMM'

Director: Terry Gilliam
Writer: Ehren Kruger
Cast: Matt Damon (Wilhelm Grimm), Heath
Ledger (Jacob Grimm), Angelika (Lena
Headley), Jonathan Pryce (Delatombe),
Peter Stormare (Calvadi) and Mackenzie
Crook (Hildick)
Released by: Dimension Films (2005)
Running time: 1 hour, 58 minutes
Rated: PG-13 for violence, frightening
sequences and brief suggestive material
Now Playing: Fairmount Cinema 6, 3750
U.S. 27 North, Sebring; 385-9980

"Time Bandits,".too, but there the aesthetic
seemed intentional.)
Classic characters like Rapunzel, Little
Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel
come and go, but they aren't used to their
full potential; they appear so randomly,
they seem like afterthoughts. Although the
Gingerbread Map, who forms from a glob
of black goo at the bottom of a well, is
awfully cute. Then he eats a small child.
In the midst of all this madness are Matt
Damon and Heath Ledger as brothers Will
and Jacob Grimm, fictionalized incarna-
tions of the real-life brothers behind all
those famous fairy tales, Wilhelm and
Jacob Grimm. Con men who make their
money pretending to drive demons and
monsters out of small towns, Will and Jake
are found out and forced to investigate a
truly cursed forest where little girls are dis-
appearing.


The actors seem to be having a good time
bouncing off each other, with Damon revel-
ing in the flashier of the two roles as the
more gregarious Grimm (and affecting a
passable British accent). But neither broth-
er is terribly well fleshed-out, though a sub-
plot harkening to their childhood - and an
unfortunate acquisition of magic beans -
is meant to convey longtime resentments.
So when Jacob pleads to Will, "You're
my brother - I want you to believe in me,"
the moment lacks the resonance for which
it strives. Similarly, a love triangle between
the brothers and Angelika (Lena Headey), a
beautiful and butt-kicking forest tracker
whose two sisters are among the missing,
rings hollow and feels tacked-on.
On horseback with her long hair and
striking features, Headey is the most
dynamic of all the movie's creatures.
Meanwhile, Gilliam squanders stage veter-
an Jonathan Pryce in the role of General
Delatombe, the French governor who has
taken over the German countryside (and
sent the Grimms on their mission). The
character is smothered by stilted dialogue
and a broad, fake accent.
As an Italian henchman assigned to fol-
low and torment the brothers, Peter
Stormare is even more over the top, which
is jarringly uncharacteristic. Stormare is an
actor who's most powerful doing more with
less - just look at his performance as a
mute hit man in "Fargo." Here he's a grat-
ing stereotype.
Then again, nearly everything about the
film grates. Fairy tales are supposed to be a
little scary; "The Brothers Grimm" too
often feels like an overbearing, inter-
minable nightmare.

'40-Year-Old Virgin' is difficult to love


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
Looks like the summer blockbuster.
movie season is: seeking to a close on a
whole new low with the release of "The 40-
Year-Old Virgin."
Consider the blunt title of this R-rated
movie, and expect everything it suggests.
The comedy is not subtle, nor is it gentle
and, except for a few rare moments, it is not
sweet. It could probably get an R rating for
language alone.
Steve Carell, who plays this movie's lone
inexperienced male, has had enough prime
supporting spots to make him long overdue
for a movie of his own. I'm sorry it has to
.!e one that pushes the envelope of bad taste
- in almost every scene.
Some may remember Carell's hilarious
scene as Jim Carrey's nemesis - who
becomes the the babbling news anchor - in
"Bruce Almighty." (On the DVD, watch the
Carell's straight-faced outtakes: They are
funnier than the movie sequence.) As the
mentally challenged news reporter in Will
Ferrell's "Anchorman" - sweet but dumb -
he was the only thing worth watching.
In "40-Year-Old," Carell's Andy is a
misunderstood nice guy who had a few
humiliating sexual experiences in his salad
days and retreated into a life of celibacy.
Hiding out in a dead-end job at a big box
electronics store, he avoids his macho-male
.co-workers - who conclude, from his oddi-
ties, that he must be a serial killer. When
they finally invite him into their inner cir-
cle, they discover he's actually a harmless,
decent doofus .with an incomprehensible
problem. Getting him a girl - any girl -
becomes their mission impossible.
But these guys are the worst examples to
follow - and that becomes part of the joke.
Jay (Romany Malco) is a swinging ladies'
man who unremorsefully cheats on his
wife. David (Paul Rudd) is still smarting
from a breakup of more than two years ago
and has turned into a misogynistic cynic
who nonetheless longs for a soulmate. Cal
(Seth Rogan) is just a pig.

Universal Pictures
Steve Carell is a lonely guy in Paramount Pictures' new '40-Year-Old Virgin.'


It's common knowledge that, when it
comes to love, people have a tendency to go
for flash instead of substance. In most
movies and in life, Andy would be the
world's biggest wallflower - the over-
looked diamond in the rough. When thrown
into the mix with his new bad boy friends,
his value leaps off the screen. The oddball
becomes a beacon of desirability.
Although Andy's new friends keep trying,
to set him up on one-night stands with wild
tramps, he manages on his own to strike up
a romance with Trish (Catherine Keener), a
single mother. Instead of jumping into
things - which is what Andy's friends
would do under the circumstances - Andy
and Trish decide to let their new, untested
relationship progress at a natural pace.
Some of the better ideas of this movie get
lost among the crude jokes, which is sad,
since many of them are surprisingly good
ones. Although Andy is supposed to be the
odd man out, his more experienced buddies

Mom subjects camera-shy daughter to cruel exposure


Dear Abby: I am not a pretty
woman, and I'm certainly not . -
photogenic. Over the years I
have been in numerous pictures
- some with family members,
some alone on special occasions.
When my family has get-
togethers with other family
members and/or friends, my
mother always brings photo-
graphs that show me in the most DEAR
unflattering poses or circum-
stances. I have told her this is Jeanne
hurtful and asked her to please
stop. She says I'm a "poor sport"
and that people aren't laughing at me, just
at the picture.
I'm tired of being laughed at, and after
50 years, I think she should stop making me
feel bad. Why does she do this, and do you
think I'm just a poor sport? - Negative
About the Photos, Manhattan, Kan.
Dear Negative: You're not a poor sport;
your mother has a cruel streak. No one ever
taught her that true humor lies in the ability
to laugh WITH people rather than AT them.
Because this has been her pattern for 50
years, it's unlikely you will ever change
her. However, it may console you to know
that by insisting on displaying those unflat-
tering pictures, your mother is revealing
more about her character than anything in
the photos.
Dear Abby: You answered a question
from a reader who asked how to respond


6i





'1j


when her 300-pound friend want-
ed to ride her horse but was too
heavy for the animal to safely
carry.
What should I tell my daugh-
ter-in-law who weighs at least
that much when she wants to sit
on my living room sofa and
chairs? She has already split the
wood frame on one of them. It
ABBY was less than seven months old. I
- had it repaired, but I can't afford
Phillips new furniture. The chairs are not
-" big enough for her body. I would
prefer she sit on the kitchen
chairs, which are heavy.
Their living room furniture is less than
five years old, but it already looks 20 years
old. The fabric is sagging and the springs
are broken.
I asked my son to say something to her,
but he hasn't. I feel he should be the one to
tell her. They'll be visiting again soon.
What should I say to her? Or should I insist
that my son tell her? - Minnesota
Mother-in-Law
Dear Minnesota M.I.L.: Before your
son and daughter-in-law arrive, put one of
the sturdy kitchen chairs in the living room.
When your daughter-in-law comes in,
guide her to the chair you want her to use.
If she questions you about it, explain that
after her last visit you had to have the chair
she used repaired and that this one is stur-
dier. Say it kindly, but if she takes offense


- so be it.
Dear Abby: How do you ask a friend not
to include you in fund-raising and parties? I
have never been much of a party-goer. I dis-
like them and avoid them if I can. But I get
tired of saying no. If I go, I can hardly wait
to get back home - and sometimes I get
several invites to parties for pets, jewelry,
pots and pans, etc., which I neither need nor
can afford. Do you have any comments on
this? - Stuck in Washington, D.C.
Dear Stuck: You are only as "stuck" as
you choose to be. As I see it, you have two
choices: Refuse the invitations as they are
received, or tell these hostess/entrepreneurs
that you do not want to be invited to parties
of this kind. Then, if they persist, recognize
that "real" friends don't subject friends to
temptation - and take a giant step back-
ward.

Monks creating sand artwork for

Ali as center nears completion


Associated Press
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - By
meticulously tapping sand out
of foot-long steel funnels, eight
Tibetan monks are creating a
sacred artwork to commemo-
rate Muhammad Ali's friend-
ship with the Dalai Lama.
Seated on thin mattresses in
the glass-enclosed lobby of a
Louisville building, the monks
started on the multi-colored
mandala Monday and are due to
finish it next week.
Traditionally, the artworks
are destroyed upon completion
to symbolize the impermanence
of beautiful things, a central
tenet of Buddhist philosophy.
This one, however, will be
secured with sprayed-on glue
and dedicated at the Nov. 19
grand opening of the.
Muhammad Ali Center.
"It's cross-cultural, it's very
spiritual," Ali Center President
Mike Fox said Wednesday.
Ali, the former heavyweight
champion, wanted to attend a
Wednesday news conference
introducing the monks but
made a "last-minute" decision
not to leave his Michigan home,
Fox said. Fox would not say if


the 63-year-old Ali, who has
Parkinson's disease, was seri-
ously ill.
Ali and the Dalai Lama met
for the first time two years ago
while dedicating an interfaith
temple in Bloomington, Ind.
Monks from the Drepung
Gomang monastery in southern
India offered to create a man-
dala as a gift to Ali.
"The connection between
Muhammad Ali and the Dalai
Lama is very important to us,"
Khensur Rinpoche, the
monastery's senior monk, said
through a translator.
For four hours each day, the
maroon-robed monks surround
a wooden square with a chalked
design. They fill the funnels,
called chakpurs, with colored
sand, then scrape the full funnel
with an empty one, causing
vibrations that release the sand
in thin, controlled streams..
Once finished, the artwork
will resemble the two-dimen-
sional map of a castle's interior.
Every color, shape and line has
symbolism that can be applied
to all religions, Rinpoche
explained.

Peacock back home after sowing wild oats


Associated 'ress
CHICHESTER, N.H. -
Daryl the peacock was caught
last week, four months after he
escaped and wandered 10 miles
Iroini home.
His reunion with his owner
can be credited to Susan
Intinarelli, who got a surprise
visit from the bird.


Intinarelli pulled back the
drapes covering the sliding
glass door that leads to her
deck. There, 3 feet away, was
Daryl, in all his blue-green
glory.
She corralled Daryl with
patio furniture, then baited him
into the bathroom with a trail of
cracked corn.


She finally reached the
Epsom police, who put her in
touch with owner Wendy
Cassetta.
His sojourn, Cassetta jokes,
was like an entrance to adult-
hood for Daryl, who turns one
next month. He went away, she
said, "to grow his feathers and
become a man."

Complaining is the spirit of pride and arrogance 40-YEAR-OLD


In Paul's letter to the
Corinthians he writes, "And do
not grumble, as some of them
did - and were killed by the
destroying angel" (1
Corinthians 10:10). When we
compare it to the sins of idola-
try and adultery which Paul
mention in earlier verses, it
hardly seems that "grumbling"
belongs on the same list.
According to our human rating
system, idolatry and adultery
are "big" sins, whereas grum-
bling and complaining are com-
mon, little, everyday sins that
nobody gets too excited about.
And yet, Paul talks about
grumbling and complaining in
the same way that he talked
about idolatry and adultery. He
points out that God punished
Israel just as severely for this
seemingly "little" sin of grum-
bling as he did for those "big-
ger" sins that he described ear-
lier.
Why should that be? What is
so serious about a little com-
plaining? Why should God treat
it so harshly?
Grumbling may seem harm-
less enough. But the attitude


behind it is able to ,'.
destroy our relation- -i
ship to God.
Grumbling is criti-
cizing. It is saying _.
that the one in charge .
is inept, incompetent
or inconsiderate. It
reveals a spirit of
pride and arrogance.
Grumbling is a crude A MI
way of accusing WITH
someone of making -
foolish decisions and Rev. I
of doing the wrong Fy
thing.
We can see, then,
that grumbling against God is
rebellion. It is impossible for a
person to fear, love and trust in
God if he grumbles and com-
plains about what God does and
permits. Grumbling opposes
faith and trust, and it breaks the
law of love. Grumbling is a fruit
of unbelief.
Consider how destructive it
is when we grumble against
other people. The husband who
criticizes his wife is putting a
heavy burden on his wife's love
for him and his love for her.


'I'


Love never thrives in
an atmosphere olf
criticism and com-
plaining. The same is
true, of course, when
a wife complains
about her husband, or
when a person com-
plains about the food
on his table, or about
MENT his work, or his pas-
tor, or his church.
GOD There isn't a single
- Christian virtue that
chard can thrive in an
fe atmosphere of mur-
i during and com-
plaining.
So let us not be like the Old
Testament Israelites, who
refused to listen, grew angry
with Moses, blasphemed and
aroused God's anger. But let us
humble ourselves under his
mighty hand and concede that
his wisdom and judgment are
far above our own. Let us freely
confess our sins, trusting that
he, who took great pains to
remove our iniquities, will only
allow what is best for us. We
have cause to be nothing but
grateful.


We should remember and be
ever grateful that God's own
Son came to earth, took on our
flesh and blood, was born in the
city of David, and revealed
himself to be the Christ, the
Lord, the Savior of the world.
He came to break the chains
of our captivity. He came to free
us from our service to sin and
its consequences. He gave us
his holy word for our learning
so that we would not make the
same mistakes as those who
have gone before us.
So may we be ever grateful
for all that our Lord has done
and not grumble and complain
about what we think he should
have done. Instead, let us praise
and thank him for the blessings
he has and continues to bestow
on us each day.

Bible forbids gossiping RCMA
Continued from 1C


because it hurts others


"Do not spread
false reports. Do not
help a wicked man by
being a malicious
witness" (Exodus
23:1).
The rumor mill,
half-truths, and gos-
sip are forbidden by
God! How many
times have you been
a victim of gossip and
false rumors? It
makes you angry,
doesn't it. How dare
someone spread such
m ,lirtiri. nm nr-,? onl


sip? Absolutely not!
Get any group of
people together and .1
guarantee you there
will be gossiping.
What about church
you might ask? Yes,
there too! All of us
are susceptible to be
deceived by Saitan so
therefore we sin -
disobey God's words
and commandments.
"Like a club or a
sword or a sharp
arrow is the man who
gives false testimony


f-tr u .against his neighbor" (Proverbs
half-truths. 25:18).
OK, now the hard question: Think about this: In the study

Do the adults remember their
school days and the rumors and
gossiping? It's like a gossip-
training ground for your adult
life. Do you remember how
damaging it was to you and oth-
ers? Gossiping leaves emotion-
al scars that are just as deep and
long lasting as a wound from a
sword.
So how do you deal with gos-
siping? Well, what I can tell you
is what I told my youth group.
If it's about you go to the per-
son that supposedly said some-
thing about you and talk with
them, I don't mean confront

Actually nothilln; may, have

out, resolve it and.forgive them
(just as God forgives you for all
of your sins) If it's about some-
one else, don't be an accessory
and refuse to pass on or even to
listen to gossip.
And of course pray. Prayer is
the first and only effective way
to deal with any problem. The
next time you hear gossip stop
it if you can, certainly don't
participate and pray that you
will not victimize others.

Instead of purchasing cards,
other organizations, called

also is a good way to "generate
visibility for RCMA" and teach
the public about the work it

disgusting way women treat
themselves.
Then there's the nice scene in
which Andy and Trish fall into
bed on their first date, but
because of complications noth-
ing comes of it. That's when
they decide to slow down and
get to know each other before
they become so intimate.
And finally there's the sug-
gestion that Andy wants the
right woman, not just any
woman because sex is - and


ought to be - worthwhile and
meaningful.
I'd like to think "40-Year-
Old" included some of those
rather nice ideas and the warm
conclusion on purpose, and yet
in this movie they seem more
commercially manipulative
than sincere. So much of this
comedy is shrieking, shrill and
no-holds-barred vulgar, a waste
of Carell's talent and every-
one's time.

Appeals court OKs Falwell critic's Web site name


Associated Press
RICHMOND, Va. - The
owner of a Web site critical of
the Rev. Jerry Falwell's views
on homosexuality did not vio-
late trademark laws by using a
common misspelling of the tel-


vision evangelist's name as the
site's domain name, a federal
appeals court ruled Wednesday.
A three-judge panel of the
4th U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals unanimously reversed
a lower court decision and ruled


that Christopher Lamparello of
New York City can keep the

at Flex Bon Paints Saturday afternoon in Sebring. Moran and Brennan Warner were this year's scholarship recipients and each received
$500 to further their education. Moran will be attending school at Keiser College, while Warner plans to attend South Florida Community
College. The scholarship run traveled through Highlands County and ended at the Elks Lodge in Sebring.

and the first year for Wal-Mart.
Employees from both stores
took part in a variety of activi-

Make improvements

Grading systems should be logical. Being rational isn't
such a bad idea, either. The collision between Gov.
Bush's A-plus grading system and the federal No Child
Left Behind scheme continues to produce an illogical,
irrational pile of wreckage.
The problem, as critics have noted often, is that both
grading systems are based on Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores, but they come to ridiculously
different conclusions. Sixty-two percent of state schools
flunked or, more politely, "failed to make adequate year-
ly progress" under NCLB. But 37 percent of those "fail-
ing" schools did well enough to earn an A or B under
Gov. Bush's rules. Talk about whiplash.
High-poverty schools that fail under NCLB can be
required to take very expensive remedial steps, including
hiring tutors and busing students to "better" schools.
Gov. Bush and Florida Education Commissioner John
Winn tried to paper over the silliness by inventing a new
name - "provisional" adequate progress - and by ask-
ing the U.S. Department of Education to waive sanctions
against A and B schools that flunk NCLB. Instead, the
feds offered to let some, but not all, schools and students
avoid penalties. Last week, Mr. Winn correctly rejected
that strange offer.
Just a few bad scores can trigger failure under NCLB.
Identifying such problems is good - particularly if they
are affecting a particular group of students - but why
"fail" the whole school? Meanwhile, Gov. Bush's grades
ignore such basics as history courses and foreign lan-
guage. Palm Beach Superintendent Art Johnson says,
"It's always going to be a problem unless the two sys-
tems are aligned." Aligned, yes. But each also needs to
be improved.

My life has been blessed in
the 25 years I've worked at the
News-Sun by the many people
I've met.
I remember in my earlier
days of reporting at the Avon
Park Sun when I worked close-
ly with the Air Force personnel
at the Bombing Range.
It was there that I first met
Avon Park's city manager, C.B.
Shirey. He was a captain in the
Air Force and someone I talked
with frequently. It was also
there that I met the late Jim
Rogers, a retired lieutenant
colonel with the Air Force and
inspector/pilot with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Both men I have considered
to be good friends.
There have also been others
who I came-to know quite well
while at the Air Force range, but
have lost touch except through
occasional conversations with
(Retired) Col. Roy Whitton.
Another person who I met
through the Air Force Range
became a very close friend
because of a mutual interest.

Editor:
Today is the 22nd of August
and I challenge all mobile
home parks to volunteer to help
"Ag-Venture" Nov. 1, 2, 3 from
8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
You say it's too early to think
that far ahead, when we live
"one day at a time." Too early?
It's 69 days away and only 125
to Christmas!
Benefits: Watching a third-
grader from all over Highlands
County light up at the sights
and wish you had just two cents
worth of their energy! The
excitement in the children's
eyes might reflect to yours.
From 8-9 a.m., there 's -free
coffee and doughnuts, nmeet a
new friend who isn't a cop.
Noon to 1 p.m., free lunch and
a ticket for a prize. Everyone
wins a prize every day!
Tuesday night 4:30-6:30 is a
barbecue dinner with all the
trimmings, music, fun, enter-
tainment for $10. Just think, no
dishes, pots and pans to clean
plus a tour of the 14 stations.
Same ones that the kids do in
the morning.
You and the kids get a free T-
shirt and bandana that you can
use back at the "park." The
girls want you to come back
year after year to renew meet-
ing 61d friends and finding new
ones.
Talk to your friends at the
park and the early snowbirds
that come down to be enter-
tained ... do something new for
a change ... give back before
it's too late ... get out from that
boob-tube and do something
for three days that you will talk
about for years to come. Wow,
what a good idea?
My challenge to you is: I'll
have more fun doing this at Ag-
Venture than you will!

No democracy

at Sun 'N Lake

Editor:
It is not surprising to hear of
the possibility of a "hostile take
over" in Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring.
The district has long been
ripe for such an action.
Unfortunately, there have been
many differences of opinion
among the board members.
Sometimes those differences
have been the root of the prob-
lems, but rarely have those dif-
ferences of opinion opened the
door to public discussion on the


the message.
Some 10 years later, I bought
one of the stainless steel
bracelets through the Lakeland
Veterans of Foreign Wars
group. It remains on my arm
today and has only been off
twice, but that's another story.
Clifton was a good friend. I
introduced him to my dad at an
event and the two became very
close.
Guil, as his friends called
him, was a tiny man with a big
heart. I learned about him and
his push to keep the Vietnam
POW/MIAs in the front of
everyone's minds. Why? His
brother, Edward, was and is
among those who were unac-
counted.
We talked at length about
Edward and Guil's mission to
make everyone aware that there
were thousands of men who
were still listed as missing. I
told his story through the news-
paper.
I remember Guil talking
strongly about a night's sleep
when he awoke, and saw
Edward standing at the foot of
his bed. At that time, Guil


issues.
We often see differences of
opinions within our political
system, both locally and
nationally. What we have not
seen in our nation is a specific-
group of people. making the
determination that a govern-
ment entity should be over-
thrown.
When this nation was still in
its infancy we determined that
we would have a Democratic
society. We moved beyond the
one-party democracy that this
country was initially founded
upon and allowed opposing
opinions and parties. This is the
basis for any democracy, yet
somehow democracy and this
concept has escaped those that
seek to remove the board mem-
bers of Sun 'N Lake and
replace them with the people of
their choosing.
National Recreational
Properties, Tanglewood and
Florida Hospital wish to
change the dynamics of the Sun
'N Lake of Sebring Board of
Supervisors. They suggest that
Bud Puffenberger and John
Negley be placed on the board
and that Marvin Fischer be
appointed as the general man-
ager of the district.
There is concern among
many of the district's residents
about this move. Mr.
Puffenberger, while a former
district employee has been
working for National
Recreational Properties and
Mr. Negley is an employee of
the hospital. It appears that
there may be a conflict of inter-


'The beauty of words in a democracy is that anyone

can offer them up, and they live or die not by a

ruler's dictate, but by their ability to permeate hearts

and minds, to ignite passions, and to provoke

actions.'

believed his brother may have
been a prisoner of war.
That belief changed at some
point.
When Guil was told cancer
had ravaged his body, he told
his wife Trudy and son Jacques
that he was "ready to go home
and join Edward."
That union took place the
evening of Aug. 19 when Guil
died.
He never missed an opportu-
nity to remind people of the
POW/MIAs. He spoke at every
ceremony he could and often
talked about it in more personal
conversations.
His brother, six cousins who
were killed in Vietnam and the.
thousands more who are still
missing were never far from his
mind.
Guil was a good friend and
will be greatly missed.

est with respect to National
Recreational Properties and the
hospital.
We must ask why Mr.
Puffenberger is willing to give
up a profitable position with
National Recreational
Properties to sit on the board of
supervisors of Sun 'N Lake
when he will receive a mere
pittance of his current salary
with National Recreational
Properties. Does he intend to
keep his position while remain-
ing on the board? If so, this is a
blatant conflict of interest and
one that the district charter dis-
allows.
Should the residents of Sun
'N Lake give up their voice in
local government to Corporate
America, we think not. We
believe that the residents would
be at a disadvantage should
National Recreational
Properties be allowed to
change the dynamics of the dis-
trict's government on the basis
that they are the largest land-
holder in the district.
The ability to remove mem-
bers of the board of supervisors
should rest solely with the resi-
dents of the district, or those
who hold lots individually, not
a corporation that is interested
in their own profit margin.
Some might say that
National Recreational
Properties has more to lose in
the district than anyone else,
based upon the amount of
money that they have invested
in the district and would there-
fore be careful about the
process of development. There
is more to lose here than corpo-
rate dollars; there are homes,
families and children to consid-
er. Those who cannot afford to
allow a corporate entity to
devalue their property.
Governments are in place to
ensure that residents needs are
met and that developers abide
by a strict set of rules. Given
the opportunity to set their own
rules, a developer is less likely
to ensure that the needs of the
community as a whole are met
and are more likely to ensure

Cell phone use is a


Some people
applaud the conven-
ience of cellular tele-
phones today, and by
some measure, they
do make life a little
easier. I, personally,
miss the days when
there were times no
one could reach you,
even if it was only
that brief time that
you were driving
your automobile.
According to the
National Highway
Traffic Safety


HIGHWAY
HOTLINE

J.P. FANE


Administration (NHTSA), dur-
ing the typical daylight moment
in 2004, 5 percent of drivers on
the road were holding cellular
phones to their ears, compared
to 4 percent in 2002, and 3 per-
cent in 2000. That translates
into approximately 800,000
vehicles on the road, during any
daylight moment in 2004, was
being driven by someone using
a cell phone.
Now that cellular phones
have become such an active
part of peoples' lives we are
beginning to see the effect that
they are having on us as
motorists.
Based on increasing evi-
dence of the hazards of using a
cell phone while driving, in
2001 the state of New York was
the first state to ban the use on
cell phones while driving. This
was followed by New Jersey,
the District of Columbia and
Connecticut to prohibit the use
of hand-held phones while driv-
ing.
Other states have adopted
limited restrictions for young
drivers, such as Colorado,
which took effect this month.
This year, 38 states tried to
pass legislation.restricting cell
phones, most focusing on
.younger drivers and driving


while distracted.
Why the sudden
focus on cell phones'?
Well, it has been
thought to be a con-
tributing factor in
traffic crashes for
some time.
Unfortunately most
police agency traffic
crash reports do not
support the gathering
of the specific infor-
mation needed to
track this as a con-
tributing cause.
This does raise the


question, exactly how impaired
does this make you? How much
does it slow down your reaction
time, if any? Is there anything
you can do to lessen the effects?
Many studies have been done
and are in the process. of being
completed to help us better
understand the effects of using
a cell phone while driving.
Some of the things they have
discovered are:
* Motorists who use cell
phones while driving are four
times as likely to get into crash-
es serious enough to injure
themselves, according to a
study of drivers in Perth,
Australia, conducted by the
Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety.
* The results, published in
July 2005, suggest that banning
hand-held phone use won't nec-
essarily improve safety if driv-
ers simply switch to hands-free
phones. The study found that
injury crash risk didn't vary
with type of phone.
* A government . study
released in June 2005 indicates
that the distraction of cell
phones and other wireless
devices was far more likely to
lead to crashes than other., dis-
tractions faced by drivers.
Researchers for the Virginia


big traffic
Tech Transportation Institute
and the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
tracked 100 cars and their driv-
ers for a year and concluded
that talking on cell phones
caused far more crashes, near-
crashes, and other incidents,
than other distractions.
* These findings seem to
contradict an August 2003
report from the AAA
Foundation for Traffic Safety
that concluded that drivers are
far less distracted by their cell
phones than other common
activities, such as reaching for
items on the seat or glove com-
partment or talking to passen-
gers. The study was based on
the analysis of three-hour
videotapes from cameras
installed in the vehicles of 70
drivers in North Carolina and
Pennsylvania.
There might be some merit to
some of these studies.
The results or conclusions
are already ending up in our
courts. In December of 2004,
in Fulton County Superior
Court (Georgia) the driver's
employer, a major construction
company agreed to pay the
plaintiff $5 million for being
injured by one of their employ-
ees in an automobile crash.
One of the contributing factors
was driving and talking on a
cell phone.
According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, driver distrac-
tion has been cited as a major
cause of motor vehicle crashes
for several decades, with an
estimated 25 percent of the 6.3
million crashes reported by
police each year involving
some form of driver distraction.
So what can we as drivers do
to avoid the pitfalls of distrac-
tive driving? To help you
reduce your chance of being


hazard
jusl another statistic, GM's
SenseAble program, a new
safety initiative designed to
reduce the risk of driver distrac-
tion while enhancing vehicle
technology and safety, offers
the following tips.
* If you use a cellular phone,
try, to use a hands-free model or
feature.
* Don't take notes or look up
a phone number while driving.
* Use memory dialing and-
directory assistance, when pos-
sible, while making calls from
the car.
S* Program your favorite sta-
tions into the radio for easy
access.
* Arrange tapes and CDs in
an easy-to-reach spot.
* Don't try to retrieve items
that fall to the floor while driv-
ing. Wait until your vehicle is
parked.
* Teach your children the
importance of good behavior
while in a vehicle. Don't under-
estimate how distracting it can
be to tend to them in the car.
* Avoid eating while driv-
ing, but if you must, choose
easy-to-handle items and make
sure all drinks are secured in
cup-holders.
* Designate a frgnt-seat pas-
senger to serve as "co-pilot"
rather than fumble with maps or
unfamiliar navigation systems.
* If you find yourself 'lost in
thought' while driving, take a
break.
* .Avoid stressful or con-
frontational conversations
while driving, either on a cell
phone or with another passen-
ger.
Remember, enjoy life, drive
defensively and arrive alive.

that the corporate dollar is pro-
tected. After all, eventually they
will leave the area, how they
leave is up to the municipality
that they are working within. To
allow National Recreational
Properties to control the board
of supervisors is paramount to
allowing the fox to guard the
hen house.
Development is needed in
Sun 'N Lake, but that develop-
ment should be controlled and
should be structured in such a
way that the entire economic
development of the district is
considered. We are not opposed
to National Recreational
Properties, but we are opposed
to their control of the board.
What happened to Mr.
Schaeffer's statements that the
contract with National
Recreational Properties would
not allow them to vote their lots
in any election? Who changed
the terms of the contract and
what motives did they have for
doing so? Does the board
intend on giving the residents
of the district an explanation for
allowing a developer to vote
lots?


And while we have disagreed
with Mr. Schaeffer in the past,
he was attempting to prevent
this take over long ago. Could
this be the reason that National
Recreational Properties wishes
to remove him? Is he standing
in this way? If so, Mr.
Schaeffer, we applaud you. If
Mr. McHale is standing in the
way, we also applaud you.
We urge the residents of the
district to look at the contract
with National Recreational
Properties. The contract is
available to you simply by
making a request under the
Freedom of Information Act.
We further urge the residents of
the district to attend any
landowners meeting that may
be scheduled and to vote your
lots, not in favor of the "Hostile
Takeover" but in accordance
with the premise of "Self Rule."
This is your community, you
have a right to vote and your
vote will count, but it will only
count if you attend the meeting,
or sign a proxy. We urge you to
act before it is too late.

Katrina means Monday night football again


By.SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
These days, a football season
that didn't have any hurricane-
related delays would be big
news.
For the third year in a row,
tropical trouble has postponed
area high school football as the
approach of Hurricane Katrina
forced all three Highlands
County teams to push their
games - the regular-season
openers - back to Monday
night. In fact, all school-related
sports scheduled for Friday
were called off, including South
Florida Community. College's
volleyball season opener at
Panther Gym.
It's actually the fourth
straight fall sports season to
suffer a setback - the Sept. 11
attacks delayed games in 2001
- and it's becoming almost
routine for coaches. .
"We're getting used 'to it


now," Avon Park coach T.C.
Cousins said. "It's like old
news."
"It's just something we've
got to deal with," Sebring coach
Jared Hamlin said. "Ain't noth-
ing we can do about it. We've
just got to stay focused. It could
be a distraction. We're going to
try to not allow it to be a dis-
traction. We're just going to
come in here and practice ...
Saturday and prepare to play
Monday."
At least the teams will be

time around. Last season,
Hurricane Frances postponed
the regular-season debuts and
the games were never made up.
"Last year, we were never
able to make up a day to play
the Lake Region game,"
Cousins said. "Now, we've got
a day we can replay it."
The chance to play on
Monday is even more important


for Lake Placid, which has a
bye next Friday. Coach Shaw
Maddox doesn't want his
Dragons sitting idle for too
long.
"We'll do whatever we've
got to do to get it in," he said.
"We need to play, especially
since we're open next week.
"For me, because we're try-
ing to throw it and run it, wait-
ing until Monday's going to be
a blessing. The weather will be
better. We practiced all week
catching the football in the rain
for that very reason."
Cousins would rather not
play on Monday, but realizes he
has no choice.
"I hate playing on Monday,"
he said. "That means we're
going to have- to play two
games in about five days, but
you can't fight the weather."
"That's a tough one," Hamlin
said of turning around and play-
ing on Friday after a Monday

Streaks blow away Dragons


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING - What normally are
intangibles were brought to the fore-
front.
Defense and special teams are usu-
ally the quiet soldiers of a football
team, but Thursday night against Lake
Placid, the Sebring junior varsity
relied on both in a 32-6 rout of Lake
Placid.
"The defense picked it up a notch,"
said Sebring coach John Sigmund of
the unit that produced a safety one


fumble return for a touchdown.
"Offensively, they were stuffing us.
We had the one good drive and started
-----. fumbling and every-
thing."
Yet the Streaks got by

Not again: FSU searching for

kicker with 'Canes on horizon


Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE -
What's new? Florida State's
opener against Miami is
approaching and, like clock-
work, the Seminoles are hav-
ing kicker troubles.
Four different players
worked out at two kicking
positions during a light spe-
cial teams workout Thursday
morning. While Chris Hall
has a firm grasp on punting
duties, the kickoff and field
goal chores are still up for
grabs.
Sophomores Chase
Goggans and Gary Cismesia
and freshman Graham Gano
- also the No. 2 punter -
are the in the mix for the
place-kicking job with the
Sept'. 5 season opener against
the Hurricanes less than two
weeks away. Only Cismesia
has collegiate experience.


"The coaches have told us
that the decision could come
as late as right before the first
game, so we will just have to
wait and see," said Gano, who
boasts the strongest leg of the
three.
That could mean more bad
new for FSU fans, who have
seen missed field goals con-
tribute to at least five losses
against Miami over the last
15 years.
Last season, Cismesia
made three late starts when
the departed Xavier Beitia
faltered. The Bradenton-
native tied a school record
with five field goals against
Duke and made a 44-yarder in
the rain at N.C. State before
missing his first two against
Florida, causing coaches to
return the job to Beitia.

only 107 yards, largely due to the
defensive play of Kyle Long, who had
a sack and recovered two of the four
fumbles Lake Placid lost.
"Kyle's a real coachable kid,"
Sigmund said. "He's one of our co-
captains tonight. He's a very steady
player."
His effort wasn't alone amongst key
defensive performances, as Michael
Sullivan returned a Lake Placid fum-
ble 49 yards for.a score with 7:31 to go

way more entertaining than This Week in
Baseball. The slow-motion replays and
epic narratives of a critical late-game
drive just aren't fitting for video of a guy
spitting in the dugout.
9. Somehow, when a game is just one
of about a dozen on the schedule, it's a
little more interesting. I'm not a m iie-
matician, but there just doesn't seem to be
much significance of one out of 162.
8. Cheerleaders. Enough said.

often than three or four times a game or
once every five days. Whether it's the

Sorenstam sets pace for




challengers to her throne .


___________________________ I


(II


By RUSTY MILLER
Associated Press
DUBLIN, Ohio - Annika Sorenstamn
doesn't have to worry about making the
European Solheim Cup team or solidifying
her status as the game's dominant player.
Yet there are plenty of challengers to her
throne, waiting not so patiently to take over
sooner or later.
"We all enjoy seeing the young guns, so
to speak," Sorenstam said Wednesday after
a practice round at Tartan Fields Golf Club
before the Wendy's Championship for
Children.
"You know, it's the future of women's
golf," she said. "Obviously, I'm not going
to step away too easily. I'm very competi-
tive and I like the spot I'm in."
U.S. Solheim Cup captain Nancy Lopez
will announce the 12-member team.Sunday
after the Wendy's, which includes 48 of the
top 50 on the LPGA money list. Lopez has
two captain's picks, with the rest of the
spots based on performance over the past
two years.
Sorenstam, who'll lead the European
team at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel,
Ind., from Sept. 9-11, is just back from a
two-week respite at her Florida home. She
is a lock to win a record eighth LPGA play-


er of the year award, with six victories
already this year.
A winner of 62 tour and 13 international
events, including nine majors,.she's hardly
over the hill at 34. But others are waiting,
and watching.
"She's the best player maybe the game's
ever seen," said amateur Morgan Pressel,
playing in the Wendy's on a sponsor's
exemption.
"She was definitely one of my biggest
role models growing up. You don't want to
copy anybody but the best. Getting to know
her in the past year. I've just tried to take as
much as I can."
Pressel finished tied for second at the
U.S. Women's Open, two shots back after
Birdie Kim holed a miracle sand shot on the
final hole.
The 17-year-old secretly nieasured her-
self against Sorenstam.
"At the Open, I sneaked by her by a few
shots," Pressel said Wednesday. "That was
a good feeling."
A distant No. 2 to Sorenstam on the
LPGA money list, rookie Paula Creamer
has two wins and her sights set on more.
"My goals were to win several times this
year," said Creamer, who won the Sybase
Classic in May and followed up with a win


at the Evian Masiers in July.
The 19-year-old will be paired with
Sorenstam the first two rounds.
"I want to see what she d(les Creamner
said. "She's long off the ic;. het c'ouise
management is unbelievable. she rarely
makes bogeys -.. things like that that I've
been aware of."
First-year pros Creamer and Brittany
Lang (who tied Pressel for second at the
Open), 20-somethings Crislie Kerr,
Christina Kim, Lorena Ochoa, Jeong Jang
and Natalie Gulhis, along .with amateurs
Pressel (turning pro next May '3, when she
turns 18) and Michelle Wie (who tied for
third at the Women's British Open) are the
next wave taking over the women's L";sII
Wie turns 16 on Oct. 12. two years shy of
meeting the LPGA age requirement of' I8
Sorenstam make-, it clear she won'! make
it easy for her replacement
"It's exciting to see the new generation.
but having said thai I have personal goa!';
she said.
"If I want to stay conipetiliv e, I'm going
to continue to pltiy really hard and push
myself. Otherwise, somebody else ws`ill iak
my spot."

Associated Press
CROMWELL, Conn. -
Ben Curtis and J.L. Lewis shot
6-under 64s Thursday to share
the first-round lead at the Buick

Curtis, the 2003 British
Open winner, birdied his 17th
hole, and Lewis birdied his
18th to emerge from a group of
players bunched at 5 under.
Kevin Sutherland, Justin
Rose, Franklin Latgham,

Corey Pavin is among a group
of four finishing at 4 under.
Curtis has only two top 10
finishes since he hoisted the
claret jug. He made one cut in
his first 10 events this year and
his confidence suffered.
But he began a turnaround
last month when he finished
third at the Western Open and
then contended early at the
PGA Championship with a
first-round 67 at Baltusrol for a
"share of the lead.

Taking the pulse of the BCS: 'I did not



know a couple of them were still alive'


This is why you've got to
love the newly reconstituted,
BCS:
Shortly after he was invited
to vote in a poll that college
football's OPEC-style cartel
will use to choose a champion,
John Mackovic began scanning
the list of names that would
join him.
After coaching at Wake
Forest, Illinois, Texas and
Arizona, as well as the NFL's
Kansas City Chiefs and work-
ing as a TV analyst, it's fair to
say Mackovic knows plenty of
people connected to the game.
But what he saw still surprised
him.
"To tell the truth," Mackovic
wrote in a recent guest column
for The Desert Sun of Palm
Springs, Calif., "I did not know
- a couple of them were still
alive."
Maybe it's just me, but this
hardly sounds like a good way
for the Bowl Championship
Series to begin it's fifth (sixth?
who can keep count?) reincar-
nation. C'mon, even Shirley
MacLaine got it right after that
many tries.
And if the only gripe about
the makeup of the new, 114-
member Harris Interactive poll
panel was the presence of a
few grizzled veterans - "peo-
ple ... who have long since
departed their active roles in
football," is the genteel way
Mackovic phrased it - that
would hardly merit a mention.
There are plenty of aged
sportswriters and broadcasters
voting in The Associated Press
poll, too.
But it's not.
In the last few days, ESPN
told four of its employees,


coaches-turned-
commentators
Lou Holtz and
Gerry DiNardo,
analyst John
Congemi and
play-by-play
man Sam Smith,
they would not
be allowed to
take part in the
poll because it is
being used by
the BCS to
determine which

Associate


teams play for its national
championship.
That was the reason the AP
gave last winter in ordering the
BCS to stop using its poll as
one of three equally weighted
components in determining the
BCS rankings. It was cited
again Thursday by ESPN
spokesman Josh Krulewitz,
who added the network's
"decision is consistent given
our decision to pull out of the
coaches' poll."
But that wasn't the BCS'
only oops, either.
Now it will also have to
replace a fifth voter, Jason
Rash, after discovering.his
only connection to college
football was his father-in-law,
Troy University coach Larry
Blakeney.
"I was disappointed," Rash
said Thursday from Atlanta,
where he runs a masonry-sup-
ply business. "I would have
taken it seriously and done a
good job at it. Larry and I have
had a lot of in-depth discus-
sions about football and I
watch a lot of games."
He's not kidding. A typical
fall Saturday in the Rash
household consists of much


Constantly

nels to take in as
many games as
.. ,^ he can, all of
Them bookended
by watching
ESPN's
"Gameday"
when he rises in
ITKE the morning and
"SportsCenter"
d Press before he goes
"- to bed at night.
"I'm pretty sure," Rash said,
"you can't say that about
everybody else on their list."
If you want to know how
much thought and effort the
BCS put into its new poll, con-
sider: From the time he was
nominated until he resigned,
Rash got only one phone call
- and that was from the
Harris people confirming his
decision to quit.
"I'm still not sure what cri-
teria I didn't meet, but from
what I looked up in the
Internet, I think you have to be
a former player, coach or col-
lege administrator," he said.
Or, as-BCS spokesman Bob
Burda confirmed later
Thursday, a member of the
media.
In any case, Rash's name
turned up on Harris' list among
the 30 submitted by the Sun
Belt Conference - to which
Troy belongs - because
Blakeney knew his son-in-law
tracked the sport like a bird
dog, and that he was account-
able and responsible to boot.
Which, come to think of it,
can rarely be said about the
suits who hijacked the postsea-
son in 1998. They promised to

the meantime, they've done

honor and their hefty salaries.
Rash, 33, never played a
down of organized football in
his life, but he is as die-hard a
fan of the game as any and
knows what he likes.
"If I was living in a perfect
world," Rash said, "I would
like to see a playoff."
So would we all.
