Comcast robber may be Wachovia 'bomber'


Suspect chased, then arrested


by sheriff's road patrol captain


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County Sheriff's Office Detective Bobby Birch talks to Hector
Velazquez, 46, of Sebring, who was arrested for robbing Comcast Cable in
Sebring Friday afternoon on State Road 17 in Sebring. He is being held in
Highlands County Jail and questioned about other local robberies.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A man who may have com-
mitted three attempted robberies and one suc-
cessful one was arrested Friday afternoon,
right after a robbery attempt at Comcast
Cable.
According to Sheriff's Lt. Paul Blackman,
Hector Velazquez, 46, of Sebring, has been
charged with robbery and fleeing or attempt-
ing to elude law enforcement. He recently
moved here from New York to work in
Sebring.
At 3:45 p.m. Friday, Blackman said,
Velazquez walked into the Comcast office at
3010 Herring Ave. jumped over the counter
with a knife of some kind, and tried to get
money from the clerks.
He wasn't successful, and immediately left
in a white Ford Escort.
Sheriff's Capt. Mark Schrader was north-
bound on Memorial Drive close to the rob-
bery scene, when Velazquez pulled out of
Herring Avenue in front of him.
Velazquez tried to elude Schrader, but was
stopped on State Road 17 at Home Avenue.
The weapon has not been recovered yet.
According to Sebring Police officials, as of
Saturday afternoon they were still waiting for
a warrant to search the vehicle.
Sebring police were notified of his capture
and have questioned him in reference to three
other robberies in the Sebring area. Sebring


Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said those cases are
still under investigation.
Velazquez is being held in Highlands
County Jail.
It's believed Velazquez may have commit-
ted the Thursday, Aug. 18, robbery at Movie
Gallery at 2940 U.S. 27 South in Sebring, as
well as two attempted robberies of banks that
week.
In tVe Movie Gallery robbery, an armed
Hispaiiic male walked into the store at about
10:07 a.m., ordered the two employees at the
front counter to the back room, and took $50
in cash from the front register. He fled on
foot, and was not captured.
The two attempted bank robberies
involved fake bomb packages delivered to
drive-through tellers. Both involved someone
driving a white Ford Escort and wearing a
surgical gloves, some kind of mask and a
camouflage cap.
At roughly 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, a
man drove up to tellers at SunTrust Bank at
126 West Center Ave., downtown Sebring.
He attempted to deliver a package in the
drawer, but it would not fit. The driver imme-
diately left the scene.
The next day a similar robbery was com-
mitted. A robber sent a small package
through the drive-through vacuum system at
Wachovia Bank at DeSoto Square at 10:15
a.m. Friday, Aug. 19. The package bore a

Soldiers' families


receive support

By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
AVON PARK - Supporting local troops is on the minds of
,many Americans today, but how many have thought about sup-
porting those left behind?
The B Battery 3rd Battalion 116th Field Artillery has set up
a family support fund to assist the families of activated troops.
Sgt. 1st Class Roy Cabalo encourages those who can afford
"a couple of dollars a week" to donate to the fund.
"Say there is a hurricane and a soldier's family can't afford'
the groceries they need; we can provide for them," Cabalo said.
The State Family Readiness Fund does provide support for
the families of soldiers, but Cabalo fears the paperwork may
hinder the process.
"We want to have the funds to support families right here,
right now," Cabalo said. "State support takes a lot of red tape
to get funds."
The local family fund will help provide necessities during
times of need.
"We do not want to undermine the state funds. They do
help," Cabalo said. "We just want to do something more."
Cabalo wants those who donate to know their donations will

Sparta Road



becoming a



traffic concern


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Traffic on.
Sparta Road is getting a lot of
attention.
Concerns surrounding a
measure to rezone a 10.25-
acre stretch along Sparta
Road were raised, but ulti-
mately failed to stop its
approval by a 3-1 margin.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
dissented. He said previously
approved projects could bring
too many residents for the
road to handle. Commissioner
Guy Maxcy abstained
because he owns property on
the road.
Local builders Brian and


kathy Ogg want to build 28
single-family homes in the
newly rezoned area, which is
just 300 feet south of
Schlosser Road.
Wolf Creek and Viscaya
Lakes, two developments
approved six years ago at
Sparta Road and State Road
66, haven't materialized.
Developers have recently
annexed their sites into the
city of Sebring, but have been
wrangling with state regulato-
ry agencies.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said the road han-
dles 5,900 cars per day at

Born to Read goes private


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun
SEBRING - Reviewing the
results of the past seven years
of Born to Read, Ginger
McClure is confident that the
program's literacy concept has
enough support here to make it
without any more grant money.
For children, Born to Read is
a natural, curled up in a field of
words secure in the hands of
someone who knows how to
read a story to a child.
The first seed money arrived
at the Heartland Library
Cooperative in 1998, as a result
of the federal Library Services
and Technology Act, distributed
among the states and in Florida
through the state's library sys-
tem.
These were "start up dol-
lars," McClure said. After
drawing seven times from the
grant funding, McClure
believes that enough seed
money has been spent to assure
a good harvest of support as
Born to Read of Highlands
County will make it without
anymore federal funding.
Last year's seed money
amounted to a healthy $9,875,
which included buying chil-
dren's books to place in the out-
stretched hands of Highlands
County residents.
Through this comprehensive
program, more than 12,000
.books have been placed in the
hands of eager readers since it
began. And in that time nearly
6,000 new parents received

"starter bags" before they left
the hospital with their new-
borns.
In Healthy Start sessions,
parents of all ages learn about
child growth and development.
During the past seven years,
2,537 adults have taken advan-
tage of this free educational
service Born to Read offers
here.
Born to Read includes a wide
outreach through "lap sit,"
where volunteering adults read
to children in libraries, at the
county's health department, and
at childcare centers.
And people who offer their
time because they believe in the
program have tallied more than
1,200 volunteer hours each
year.
Now that the seed money is
gone, it's time to see what seven
years of ongoing cultivation
will produce.
The list of private support
continues to grow as McClure
travels the county presenting
the Born to Read story. The
Children's Services Council,
Sebring Friends of the Library,
Sebring Sunrise Rotary, Lin Pac
Plastics, Sertoma Club, Sebring
Rotary Club, Avon Park Rotary
Club, Avon Park Inner Wheel,
Lake Placid Woman's Club,
Mom's Club, Sebring Breakfast
Kiwanis Club, and individual
residents who give donations
agree with McClure that the
program is important.

Cathy Hardesty (left) and Susan Harris, who both teach science
at Hill-Gustat Middle School, recently won a trip on the Zero-G
plane. The.plane, which provided the zero gravity scenes in the
movie Apollo 13, simulates weightlessness by flying parabolas,
like a roller coaster, on a 45-degree angle. While floating in air,
the teachers conducted and filmed experiments that will help
their students understand things like mass and Newton's laws of
gravity. Of the 15 teachers who won spots by writing a 750-
word essay, Hardesty and Harris were the only two from the
same school.



Quick response nabs


stabbing suspect


News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County sheriff's deputies man-
aged to catch a stabbing suspect
Friday before he had time to
flee in the victim's car.
The stabbing took place just
after noon at the home of the
victim in Leisure Acres mobile
home park, 3651 U.S. 27 South.
Deputies have arrested 37-
year-old Dudley Whitner Payne
and charged him with robbery
and aggravated battery. Payne
did not have a local permanent
address. His last known address
was 2112 West 9th. St.,
Lakeland.
At about noon, the 66-year-
old victim picked up Payne
from the Circle in downtown

Blackman said. For unknown
reasons, he took him back to his
home to eat lunch.
Then, just before 12:25 p.m.,
an argument broke out. Payne
allegedly stabbed the other man
five to eight times, then took
some money and his car keys.
Blackman and another
deputy were in the area and
were able to respond within
three minutes of getting the
call.
They arrested Payne in the
carport. He was just standing
there, Blackman said.
Blackman said it was fortu-
nate that he and the other
deputy were in the neighbor-
hood and could respond so
quickly.

RIC LILJENBERG/News-Sun
During a Born to Read 'lap sit' Monday afternoon at the Children's Library in Sebring, Children's
Library assistant Michelle Skyers asks 21-nionth-old Sophia Luce (left) and 2-year-old Rilian Smith to
find the donkey's nose in a storybook illustration:


the start up period and we have
had some local support from
these organizations through the
years," McClure said. "For the
past seven years the local sup-
port has been in addition to the
grant and has let us go beyond
what we wrote in the grant, but
now it will be totally local sup-
port."
As she looks at the early crop


of Born to Read success stories,
she said, "What we can contin-
ue to do will depend on this
support."
When this last seed money is
spent and the grant year ends
the last day of September,
McClure will continue as a vol-
unteer facilitator for the pro-
gram. Looking beyond
September, she said, "We think


we can do a very good,
redesigned program for about
$6,600."
Individuals and groups inter-
ested in supporting Born to
Read may make donations to

County concerned about



unapproved subdivisions


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County could have a problem
with unauthorized subdivisions.
In at least 10 cases all over
the county, developers are cut-
ting up agricultural land .into
five- or 10-acre lots and selling
them off. A developer in Venus
is carving roads into agricultur-
al land and selling five- and 10-
acre tracts online.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said last
Tuesday that the county has an
exemption on 10-acre parcels
that allows landowners to sub-
divide once into two five-acre
tracts and still keep agricultural
zoning. However, large parcels
are being divided up into sever-
al five- and 10-acre tracts, then
marketed and sold as residential
lots.
This violates the county's
land development regulations
by exploiting a loophole,
County Administrator Carl
Cool said Tuesday.
Unauthorized subdividing may


not cause problems right now,
but may'later, when future resi-
dents want their roads main-
tained.
Cool said past developers put
roads into the property, sold off
parcels and then -left.
Eventually roads wore out 'and
the new residents asked the
county to help fix and maintain
them. Several times during the
1970s, county commissioners
got calls about roads that wore
out before they should have.
If a development is platted
and the roads have six inches of
shell and four inches of asphalt,
they will be good roads, Cool
said.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart wants to raise the sub-
dividing exemption to 40 acres.
However, Jim Brooks, chair-
man of the county board of
adjustment, said the planning
and zoning board is against
changing the 10-acre exemp-
tion, especially after working
on the regulations for a year and
a half.
He said a lot of people in

agricultural areas don't even
want a paved road to their prop-
erty. However, Stewart is more
concerned about out-of-county
residents who buy thinking the
lot is in a subdivision, with
good dr.iii'vic and transporta--
tion.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes
didn't want to see local govern-
ment interfere in personal prop-
erty rights. He could understand
her concerns, but didn't think
local land development regula-
tions was the way to go about it.
Cool said people buying
five-acre lots think someone is
overseeing roads and drainage.
"When the roads go bad, they
will call you," Cool said.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said buyers should be more cau-
tious. If they aren't checking
with county staff, then "they get
what they pay for," he said.

Katrina

gave county

little rain,

no flooding

News-Sun
SEBRING - At best
estimates, Highlands
County only got two
inches of rain from
Hurricane Katrina.
Not that Emergency
Management Director
Bill Nichols is complain-
ing. He has not gotten
any reports of flooding
anywhere in the county,
which includes the Toni
Circle, Toni Drive and
Old State Road 8 area of
Venus.
The roads there were.
already flooded. Had
Highlands County
received another six to
eight inches of rain, resi-
dents there would have
had some serious prob-
lems.
Hurricane Katrina took
a turn southwest and
dropped most of her rain
south of' Lake
Okeechobee, which also
prevented anticipated
flooding of the lake and
surrounding watershed.
At noon Friday, the
Highlands , County
Emergency Operations
Center dropped from
Level 2 Partial Activation
to Level 3 Monitoring.
The information hotline
was canceled because
operators were getting no
calls, Nichols said.
Katrina's predicted
track will take the storm
in a wide semi-circle
through the Gulf of
Mexico, to make landfall
again in three days near
the Florida Panhandle.
The storm did not
reduce strength as much
as expected, Nichols said,
because it spent less time
over land. It entered the
Gulf with 70 mph sus-.
tained winds. By 11 a.m.
. Friday;. ground-level
winds had already
increased to 100 mph.
Katrina will strike near
the Panhandle as a
Category 3, possibly a
Category 4, hurricane.
When asked if the
storm might still make a
sharp right-hand turn and
come back on the penin-
sula, Nichols said that's
possible, which is why
they will monitor the
storm.

Flores charged with felony battery


SEBRING - An outdoor
party on Aug. 5, turned bad
when uninvited guests showed
up.
One of them, allegedly, hit
the host across the face, break-
ing his jaw and knocking him
unconscious for a while. After
an investigation, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
arrested Rick Flores, 20, of
Lake Placid, on charges of
felony battery.
When deputies arrived at
Flores' residence on Saturday,
Aug. 20, to arrest him on the
warrant, he fled.
Deputies didn't find him that
night, but Flores called a deputy
on Sunday, Aug. 21, and asked
to meet with him. At the meet-
ing, he apologized for running,
was arrested and taken to jail.
Bail is set at $15,500.


The Aug. 5 party was held in
a pasture along County Road
635. At 1:30 a.m., the host was
attempting to end it when a
group from Lake Placid showed
up.
Thehost told them the party
was over, but one of them got
into his truck and started doing
doughnuts, damaging the sod.
The host again told them to
leave, but the driver got upset
and an argument started.
The host, having seen his
brother get pushed, walked
toward the fracas and got struck
across the face, briefly losing
consciousness and suffering a
broken jaw and a lost tooth.
People who saw it told him
who hit him. One was able to
pick Flores out of a photo line
up.

Buttonwood Bay hosts summer games


SEBRING - When Julie
Reddix, a resident of
Buttonwood Bay and volunteer
at Ridge Area Arc, has an idea
to help people enjoy the hot
summer days, she has a plan,
and lots of people to carry it to
success.
The second annual
Buttonwood Bay Summer
Games was Wednesday for the
individuals served by Ridge
Area Arc. Approximately 100
people served by Arc enjoyed
participating in fun games by
Buttonwood's lake, and then ate-
a lunch at the clubhouse.
Annett Bus Charters donated
the use of three busses to pick
everyone up at Arc's Adult
Training Center in Avon Park
and drove them to and from
Buttonwood Bay. Among the
great games played, volleyball,
tug of war, ring toss, croquet,
frisbee and horseshoes; the
dunk tank was the hit of the day.
Many Arc staff members and
volunteers found themselves
cooling off in -the cool water.

The dunk tank was made possi-
ble with the help of Precision
Cabinetry, Phyllis Klepser, and
Taylor Rental.
D&B Golf Carts provided
carts to transport individuals
from the lake to the clubhouse.
Everyone was treated to lunch
provided by Pizza Hut in Avon
Park and Sebring and


Pizzano's. Trophies were
awarded in several categories at
the end of the day.
Reddix, beaming after a very
successful event, said the day
could not have been possible
without all the help of Arc staff,
volunteers, and those who gen-
erously provided services and
food.

Sebring prepares to host first-ever 'Love Bug Jubilee'


Drawing participants
from Gulf Coast
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Love hugs
always invade Florida in early
September. but this time, they'll
be a lot bigger.
On Saturday, Sept. 10,
Sebring will host the inaugural
Love Bug Jubilee, a food and
fun auto festival centered
around Volkswagen Beetles and
the tiny black, winged insects
that are the bane of Florida
motorists.
The festival has invited
Volkswagen enthusiasts to the
Sebring Circle and spoke streets
as part of the second Saturday
Night Cruise from 5-8 p.m.,
Sept. 10. It will include a "Li'l
Buggers Parade" for kids, char-
ity car washes, a stuff-a-bug
contest for school-aged chil-
dren, vendors and trophies for
six categories of vintage
Volkswagens.
The Heartland VW Club will


do the judging and came up
with the categories for the con-
tests: Beetle, Kharman Ghia,
Bus, Type III (Notchback,
Fastback and Squareback),
Water-cooled, and People's
Choice.
The event will be sponsored
by the Heartland VW Club, the
Sebring Special Events
Committee and the Sebring
Downtown Merchants and
Professional Association.
The idea came from the Key
West Chicken Festival, where
citizens found a way to cele-
brate pesky feral chickens with
an annual festival. Barry Foster,
talk show host on WWTK 730
AM in Sebring, asked listeners
to e-mail ideas for a local pest,
and one suggested the love bug,
the adult insect that ends up
splattered on car grills and
windshields.
Another suggestion came in
to call it the Love Bug Jubilee
- LBJ. It sounded like fun, so
Foster started working on it.
The fall infestation of love bugs


is worse than May, so he
thought that would be the best
time.
Foster works as master of
ceremonies for Justin Williams,
organizer of the festival, and
got him involved. Jon Spiegel
and fellow radio talent John
Meder, both of the Sebring
Special Events Committee, got
involved, providing the money
for trophies and $250 as first
prize for the stuff-a-bug contest.
"This thing has taken on a
life of its own," Foster said.
"It's astonishing how many
people are coming in."

What is a real 'Love Bug?'


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
The "Love Bug" (Plecia nearctica) is a nui-
sance to Florida motorists since the adults mate
in May and September, and are seen flying over
Florida roadways. The adults splatter on wind-
shields, lights, grills and radiators of motor
vehicles, and their dried remains are hard to
remove.
If not removed from a car within 48 hours,
acid in their bodies will corrode automotive fin-
ishes, pitting and etching the paint. Suicidal
pairs of love bugs have been known to cause
overheating of motors when large numbers of
them are drawn into the cooling systems of liq-
uid-cooled engines.
The bugs neither bite nor sting. They do not
eat mosquitoes. Adults do not eat at all but are
engaged in mating flights. Larvae feed on


responses from Volkswagen
clubs in St. Petersburg, Fort
Myers, and Sarasota. Williams
has gotten a quote of up to 100
participants from a contact in
Lakewood with connections to


decaying plant material.
Mating begins with a male darting and grasp-
ing a female that is flying through the swarm.
The pair falls to the ground and couples.
Initially, the male is positioned on the back of
the female and both face the same direction.
After coupling, the male turns 180 degree and
faces the opposite direction. Successful mating
takes 1.5 to 10 minutes.
The overly amorous critters are native to
Central America, and probably came to the
United States as undiscovered \t':aln s :\ on j
ship to Galveston or New Orlealn; jrOaind 1920
They migrated into Florida in 1947 fromn-i
Louisiana.
The bug is also called the honeymoon fly,
telephone bug, double-headed bug, united bug,
and March fly.


Volkswagen clubs. Foster has
heard high numbers, but he
won't quote that number until
he sees them parked on the
Circle.
Foster is a bit concerned that


the guests of honor at the Love
Bug Jubilee, the insects them-
selves, may not arrive in great
numbers. Worst after heavy
summer rains, he wonders if
there has been enough this year.

News-Sun, Sunday, August 28, 2005


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Studies have
shown that by 2010, more than
85 percent of the students grad-
uating high school will need
post-secondary schooling.
Some people believe that's
already true.
The fact is, so many occupa-
tions now require special certi-
fications or college degrees it is
essential a school district pre-
pare its graduating seniors for
some kind of college experi-
ence.
That's why The School
Board of Highlands County and
senior administrators at South
Florida Community College are
endeavoring to create a smooth
pathway for Highlands County
students.
Among the obstacles educa-
tors face are the logistics of
offering college-level courses
to high school students, and
convincing those students why
they should take those courses.
The school board wants
every student to take at least
one college-level course in high
school. The idea is to show stu-
'dents who might not otherwise
consider post-secondary educa-
tion, lthaijt is not only impor-
tant, :bUt possible, while prepar-
ing them for the workload of
college classes.
The school board and SFCC
have already put a program into
place, that encourages children
to .think about different career
options as-early as the fifth
grade.


SUPPORT
Continued from 1A
be used for support, not unnec-
essary luxuries.
"We will help by providing
immediate necessities," Cabalo
said. "We won't be paying
-so8neone's cable bills."
&Some donations have already
been received.


'We are the
number, one
leader in the
country for dual
enrollment. We
do it well. It's
important ...'

LEANNA REVELL, South Florida
Community College

Parents are given a primer on
career exploration which out-
lines for them the steps a child
will have to take over the
course of his or her academic
career in order to be positioned
for success.
For example, parents can
help their children become
aware of their own interests or
natural talents. They can expose
their children to a wide range of
occupations, talking about the
different duties, requirements,
rewards and conditions
involved.
The primer explains how, as
children advance through the
system, those explorations
should become more detailed,
leading to a specific action plan
with a realistic timeline by high
school. It also explains how to
create that plan.
A follow-up booklet is dis-
tributed to parents of eighth


"We are doing well," Cabalo
said. "Donations are always
welcome."
Cabalo thanks those who
have donated time, money and
supplies to the support of troops
and their families.
"We do what we do because
we are soldiers." Cabalo said.
"These people hb\ ej.ilped out
because they want to."
The family support account


graders. It outlines what steps
should be taken in what year to
stay on track. For example, it is
recommended 10th-graders
take the SFCC placement test.
SFCC's dual enrollment pro-
gram provides an opportunity
for Highlands County high
schoolers to take college-level
courses. This doesn't mean a
student has to take purely aca-
demic courses. SFCC is work-
ing with the school board to
create more dual enrollment
technical education opportuni-
ties as well.
Dual enrollment, in addition
to helping a high school student
get ahead, also allows students
to earn college credit without
paying tuition. The grade a stu-
dent earns applies to both their
high school and college tran-
scripts. Because-the work is
more difficult, the high school
grade is weighted, so it
improves that grade point aver-
age.
The school board and SFCC
are also working together to
enhance communication
between the college and high
school guidance counselors, so
students will have, the most up-
to-date and useful information.
"We are the number one
leader in the country for dual
enrollment," said Leana Revell,
SFCC vice-president, educa-
tional and student services,
said. "We do it well. It's impor-
tant to get students thinking
early on, to help them develop a
vision - that there isn't a dead
end (after high school)."

S.R. 66. The county is building
a 400-foot left turn lane into
Sparta Road at U.S. 27 to han-
dle excess traffic, and widening
the pavement and shoulders
south to the bridge over the
Jackson-Josephine Canal.
These improvements should
ease congestion and minimize
problems, Gavarrete said. If
Wolf Creek and Viscaya Lakes
develop, the county should
widen most if not all of the road
to four lanes, he added, but
those developers alone can't
pay the $15.5 million price tag.
Sparta Road is not on any
priority list with the Florida
Department of Transportation
for improvements, Bullard said.
He'd rather see some improve-
ments or dedicated funding
before building out the road.


District works to prepare SPARTA
Continued from IA


He worries that Sparta is
fully built out with the lowest
housing density and could have
far more trips per day than it
could ever handle.
Wolf Creek and Viscaya
Lakes developers have already
provided $75,000-$80,000 for
future road improvements. A
clause in their development
orders charges $1,600 for each
house they add to their plan and
add that to the amount for road
improvements, Gavarrete said.
Other county-approved
developments - the Boma
property, Wolf Creek Ranches
on Lake Charlotte and
Highlands Lakes Preserve -
could divide as many as 8,403
daily vehicle trips among the
surrounding roads. That num-
ber could be a lot less,
Gavarrete said, because those
proposed developments haven't
received all of the required
approvals to develop.


Captain Ron's Mercantile


becomes site for bill paying


SEBRING - The electronic
age has been bridged by a new
electronic bill payment service
now offered through Captain
Ron's Mercantile, Tower
Square, 2926 Sparta Road at
U.S. 27, behind State Farm
Insurance.
Captain Ron's store phone
number is 471-1984. The serv-
ice is called Pay All Bills Here
and provides "one-stop" con-
venience for anyone needing to
pay any bill.
The process is very simple.
Rather than purchasing a
money order, finding an enve-
lope, purchasing a stamp and
taking the bill to the post office,
a person, by taking that bill or
statement to Captain Ron's
Mercantile can become an
established bill payment cus-
tomer and pay any bill that is
payable to any biller. The entire
bill payment process is com-
pleted at one convenient loca-
tion. The Pay All Bills Here'
sysim is a nationwide Internet
based solution, allowing


Captain Ron's to make it an
easy choice for any person to
pay any and all of their bills,
month after month. The system
utilizes relationships with thou-
sands of commercial billers in
various industries that have
agreed to accept payments elec-
tronically. Additionally, any
bille not currently participating
in our electronic network will
be contacted by The Pay All
Bills Here Service to discuss
details about how their business
can become eligible to receive
payment electronically, thereby
enhancing their customer serv-
ice.
Time frames for payment set-
tlement vary between billers,
most as quickly as two business
days depending on whether the
biller can accept electronic
remittance. Even if a biller can-
not receive an electronic pay-
ment, Pay All Bills Here still
forwards the funds to the biller.
"This process lias been
received by billers and cus-
tomers alike," said Kirk


McLaughlin, chief executive
officer of Security Bank, Rails,
Texas owner of the bill payment
software. "Inexpensive elec-
tronic bill payment has been
reserved for those with a bank
account until now. We are
pleased to offer to individuals
that do not have a banking rela-
tionship a way to conveniently
pay bills, too," McLaughlin
added.
More information about this
service can be found at
www.payallbillshere.com.

Commissioner Barbara
Stewart did not want- to hold
road capacity for "speculative"
developments, which may or
may not come in, especially
when local applicants are pre-
pared to build closer to urban
water and sewage lines.
What's more, residents said
they don't have a problem with
Sparta Road traffic.
Vivian McIntyre, who has
lived on the road since it was
made of dirt, said she's never
seen traffic problems there. She
added the traffic light at U.S. 27
may need timing adjustment,
but that's all.
Keatley Waldron, whose
request to rezone 14 acres for
medium-density homes was

TUFFIN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Travel Agent


Every day brings a


different destination


But I want

to go too

I learned this week I could
never be a travel agent.
It's a perfect chocolate sun-
dae kind of thing. By which I
mean, arranging trips to won-
derful, far off places and'hav-
ing to turn over the tickets, is
like having to hand over that
perfect sundae if you work in
an ice cream parlor. It looks so
good, you'd rather eat it your-
self.
I know I'd want to go on
those trips myself.
And that can get expensive.
But you try resisting the
lure of the shiny brochures
with colorful pictures of exotic
locations.
There they are, lined neatly
in racks - Alaskan glaciers,
African veldts, and Austrian
Alps; the pyramids, the Taj
Mahal, the Great Wall of
China.
Surrounded by pictures of
deserts with camels or jungles
with tigers; of cruise ships, air-
planes and trains, my feet
would itch for travel.
And those wonderful names
- Timbuktu, Tahiti, Tasmania,
Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia,
Istanbul and Tegucigalpa.
Who wouldn't drool? I do.
Who doesn't, at least on
occasion, want to set off on an
adventure? I do.
I imagine how it would be
to sit at my travel agent 'desk
on a gray and rainy day, show-

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Sandy Greenslade, who with her husband David Greenslade, owns and operates
Hometown Travel, has been a travel agent for 21 years. "A majority of our work
is don*i over the phone," she said, as she fielded a all.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING -Sandy Greenslade has
been a travel agent for 21 years.
For the last 15, she and her husband,
David, have owned and operated
Hometown Travel in the Southgate
Shopping Center.
' She has seen tremendous change in the
industry over the years, not all of it con-
nected to technology.
Of course computers and software
have made a tremendous difference. An
experienced agent can pull up informa-
tion in minutes, that 20 years ago might
have taken days.
And there are a lot more destinations
these days, with countries and states cre-
Sating pew tourist opportunities.
For example, cruise ships have multi-
plied exponentially. "When I started out,
I knew every ship because there weren't
that many," Greenslade said. "Now there
are so many ships out there we just don't
know them all. Carnival Cruise line alone
has 22 ships."
But there are other differences that are
not so positive.
For instance, at one time the travel
agent's services were paid for by the air-
lines, cruise ship companies, and resorts.
Now the airlines pay nothing, and the
customer must pay a fee instead.
And there was a time, Greenslade said,
when travel agents got free or reduced
rates as an incentive. Those also are a
thing of the past.
One has to be patient to make money
as an agent. Entry level pay is usually
only slightly higher than minimum wage.
Most training is done on the job.
The work is done on the phone and
online.
Travel agents make reservations for,
cruises, tours, airline tickets, car rentals,
entertainment and hotel rooms.
"We can book anything, anywhere in
the world," Greenslade said.
And agents oversee documentation,


making sure customers have the needed
papers and information.
"Agents handle the headaches," she
said. They have to be creative and
resourceful.
"I would want someone who was com-
puter savvy, good in math and geography,
and knows how to find answers,"
Greenslade said, when defining an ideal
employee. "They have to be a good lis-
tener, but the biggest key is know how,
knowing how to find the answer. A lot of
the job is research"
She reports that Highlands County res-
idents are well traveled. "We've done
more overseas travel than ever before.
"Alaskan cruises, and cruising in
Europe are quite popular this year. And
Las Vegas and national parks."
One couple booked a trip in a rented
car to tour the desert region of Australia.
"Until they got back, I worried,"
Greenslade said. "You have to be well
prepared for a trip like that, the desert is
very dangerous."
Greenslade recommends people think-
ing about travel plan well ahead. If a per-
son comes in a week before they want to
leave, they may be disappointed, she said.
For example, if a person wants to go
somewhere this Christmas, they'd better
start making reservations now.
Have an idea of a budget, and remem-
ber that a person can pay in installments,
but everything has to be paid by a dead-
line before they leave.
The travel agent will keep a person on
schedule.
"It's different kind of job," Greenslade
said, as she smiled. "'Everybody who
walks through the door has a different
challenge. One day you're booking a
round-the-world trip, the next day an
Amtrak ticket to Orlando."
Hometown Travel is in the South Gate
SCenter, next to Yums restaurant, It is open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday.
The telephone number is 382-7788.

Creative Cut-N-Color owners


bond together in business venture


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - Tara Vickery and Jackie
Lockhart work together to open the Creative Cut-
N-Color.
Both owners previously worked at Regis in the
Lakeshore Mall.
"I like to do trendy, cutting-edge looks. We're
like to attend hair show classes and workshops in
Orlando to keep up to date. Each person is like a
clean sheet and you get to create a new picture.
That's what I like best." Vickery said. "But I
always seem to do my best when a person does-
n't come in with pre-conceived ideas. When
there's no limitations, there's much more creativ-
ity."
This summer, blonde is popular, and they do
highlights for a sun-kissed look and lowlights for
a natural look.
"I love cutting. In that way I can make a big
change. It's really a makeover for a client when
she leaves with a new attitude. Later we hope to
.grow and offer a facial room, tanning, etc. I
would like to offer classes on how to apply make-
up, and how to pick the proper color tones to
accentuate your face. That's my specialty,"
Lockhart said.


"We clicked when we met. We think alike.
She's the best partner. We just bonded," Lockhart
said.
Previously Lockhart had been a correctional
and law enforcement officer at Hardee County
and later Moore Haven facilities.
"I worked all the positions, even the gun truck,
which patrols the fence perimeter. This is a big
change and for the better for me. It really fills my
needs. I love people and when they sit in my
chair, I want them to get so relaxed and comfort-
able that they're transported to another world.
You never know what someone's day or home
life is like. I can take away that stress when they
close their eyes. This is my calling. And our
prices are affordable. We give 100 percent. This
is a nice clean shop. I have goals and dreams.
Give us a couple of years." Lockhart said.
All chemical treatments (relaxers, color, per-
manent) start at $50. Hair cuts cost $15 and wax-
ing is $10. They take appointments and walk-ins
are welcome.
Creative Cut-N-Color is at 1046 U.S. 27 South
(in the Publix Plaza). Call 453-3444 or for an
appointment. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday.

AVON PARK - Bob Fox
offered embroidery and screen
printing for 18 years at
Designer's Top Shop, but he
has passed the business on to
two new owners.
Christina and Justin Jackson
recently took over Designer's
Top Shop offering embroidery
and screen printing.
"I miss the people I dealt
with. But I'm old enough to sell
out and retire. I felt Christina
had the background to get off
on the right foot. Besides, her
forte is as an artist," Fox said.
"I've been in graphic sales
for 10 years. This is so much
fun. We both run it. Justin
jumped in and is learning and
doing well," Christina Jackson
said.
"I first met her out of artist
school 10 years ago and she
worked for me for a year. She
was the determining factor in
my retirement. I wanted some-
one local with good experience
and I haa to know it was in
good hands," Fox said.
They offer screen printing on
bags, T-shirts, hats, shirts,
shorts and uniforms. Customers
include area football teams,
cheerleaders, , schools in
Highlands and Hardee counties,
and even some out-of-state
clients.
"We also have a contract
with the charter schools,"
Christina Jackson said.
"Although our work is mostly
commercial, we will work with
individuals. We embroider
items for Bill Jarrett, Avanti,
Highlands Independent Bank
and Sebring, Avon Park and
Lake Placid schools," Christina
Jackson said.
Top Shop offers custom
design work as well.
"If a person doesn't have a
logo, we can create one and
burn a screen for it. I like to
watch everything come to life,
from creating a customer's
order,, to looking at the proof,
and seeing what it will finally
become," Christina Jackson
said.
With five employees,
Jackson and her husband of five
years all work as a team. "We
work well together. This busi-
ness has grown every year from
when Mr. Bob started it with
only his son. In fact, I'm look-
ing for another embroiderer to
hire," Christina Jackson said.
Designer's Top Shop has cat-
alogs with all kinds of ideas and
people can stop in the store and

see the variety and workman-
ship of different clothes, bags,
jackets.
"We like to work with every-
.one, churches, school pro-
grams, dance recitals, and
reunions," Christina Jackson


said.
Designer's Top Shop is at
108 South Forest Ave. For
details, call 453-3855. Hours
are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

ing customers pictures of
sunny Greece.
It would be painful, I'd so
want to be on that balcony in
the picture, with the
Mediterranean Sea in the dis-
tance.
How could I stand it as I
looked up from the picture to
remember where I actually was
and that I'd left my umbrella at
home?
Or how could I resist if, on a
baking hot day in September,
with the asphalt road outside
grown mushy in the heat, two
customers book reservations-
for the cooling fjords of
Scandinavia?
How could I keep from


whipping out my credit card,
and joining them on the trip?
I couldn't.
There are just so many
things to see, and so many
kinds of people to meet, I don't
know if I could spend my life
watching people leave. Or
afford to travel with them.
So there's that.
But, if you're happy at
home, and you think adventure
is just the result of bad plan-
Sning, being a travel agent can
be a terrific job.
You have regular hours, and
work in a office for one thing.
Plus there's something cool
about mastering the jargon of .
travel, and knowing how to
read all the numbers and letters
that fill the reservations online
screens. Those look like a


Central Intelligence Agency
coded transmission.
And if you like micro-man-
aging work, this job is for you,
because it's all about details -
arrivals, departures, peak peri-
ods, and tariffs to name just a
few.
You have to be a good lis-
tener. You have to do your
homework, and keep up with
trends and timetables, and you
need to know geography.
Computer skills are essential.
If you're content to stay put,
this job even has great rewards.
Take the thanks of a couple
who returned from a three-
month two-continent tour.
They made every connection,
had the correct visa at every
border, and a clean room in
every city. They went where


State Certified License #CBC058444


they wanted, and liked what
they saw. Their trip, in other
words, was a total success.
Making someone else happy,
that's far from bad.
But I still wouldn't want to
be a travel agent.

Progress Energy employees install a wheelchair ramp at a local resident's home. This project and several
others were part of a company volunteer day coordinated by United Way for Progress Energy.


Progress Energy volunteers


build wheelchair ramps


Fifteen Progress Energy
employees volunteered their
morning recently to help with
some home repairs for those in
need in Highlands County as
part of a company volunteer
day.
The project with Rebuilding
Together was coordinated by
United Way of Central Florida.
United Way also treated the
Progress Energy workers to
lunch. Progress Energy does a
volunteer day instead of partici-
pating in the United Way's Day
of Caring held in the spring.
Rebuilding Together is the
Highlands County branch of a
national group committed to
using volunteer help to revital-
ize low-income houses and
communities. One house in
Avon Park and another in Lake
Placid were equipped with new
wheelchair ramps with the vol-
unteer help from Progress
Energy.

SCLC will lead
protest march
against Taser
gun use
By DANIEL YEE
Associated Press Writer
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga.
- A civil rights group said


Friday it will lead a march to
protest the use of law enforce-
ment using Taser guns.
The announcement was
made by the president of the
Atlanta-based Southern
Christian Leadership
Conference who said the
three-mile march Nov. 12 will
be held in the suburban
Atlanta town where a jailed
man died days after he was


stunned with a Taser.
The SCLC previously had
asked that District Attorney
Danny Porter reopen the .
investigation of the death of
Frederick Williams, who died
in May 2004 after deputies
stunned him with a Taser gun
while in jail.
The civil rights group want-
ed him to recommend a spe-
cial grand jury be convened to
re-examine whether the
deputies should be held
accountable for the 3 I-year-
old Lawrenceville man's
death.
Porter denied their request
in June.
"We still have a concern
with the local district attor-
ney," Steele said. "But this
issue is bigger than Mr.
Porter."
Steele said the group wants


Bush considering special


session on Cecil Field


By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE - Gov.
Jeb Bush is considering a spe-
cial legislative session to make
it clear Florida is ready to put
up money to help reopen Cecil
Field, a naval air station at
Jacksonville that closed in
1999.
Bush said Friday that he had
spoken with lawmakers about
that possibility after the Base
Realignment and Closure
Commission opened the door
for closing Oceana Naval Air
Station in Virginia and moving
its jet fighters and 11,500 mili-
tary and civilian jobs to Cecil.
The commission Wednesday
voted to give Virginia officials
six- months to begin reducing
encroachment by homes and
businesses that has caused safe-
ty problems at Oceana and start
acquiring properties in areas
with the greatest accident
potential.
In the meantime, prepara-
tions would be made to reopen
Cecil in case Virginia fails to
meet those requirements.
"We' r really right now wait-
ing to assess what the expecta-
tions are of Oceana," Bush said.
"They made it clear that 1,800 -
homes are going to have to be
purchased.... It would make it a
big hurdle for Oceana to con-
demn 1,800 homes."
The Virginia Beach City
Council discussed the commis-
sion's directive for about two
hours Friday but took no action.
Members said they need more
information before deciding
whether to try to acquiring the
homes.
Florida, 'meanwhile, was in
line to gain a net of about 4,000
military and civilian jobs as the
commission neared the end of
its deliberations in suburban
Washington, D.C.
Most of Florida's increases
would come from expansions at
other Jacksonville installations
and Eglin Air.Force Base in the
Panhandle, all resulting from
Pentagon recommendations.
The panel, however, rejected
Defense Department proposals
for three significant cuts at
Florida bases, increasing the
state's net gain by more than
1,000 jobs. The commission's
recommendations next will go
to the president and Congress
for final action.
"I was so pleased," Bush
Said. "It's really a tribute to all
the communities' efforts, and to
our efforts, frankly."
Bush and other Florida
politicians have appeared at
commission hearings and the
governor was there as it began
deliberating Wednesday.
Pensacola Naval Air Station
and nearby Saufley Field
remain the biggest losers with
841 jobs on the chopping block.
That's about half of what the
Pentagon had recommended
because the commission turned
down a proposal to move the
Naval Education and Training
Command, or NETC, and 738
staffers from the two Pensacola
base to Millington, Tenn.
The panel also voted down
Pentagon proposals to move
220 sensor, electronic warfare
and information systems testing
jobs from Eglin to Edwards Air
Force Base, Calif., and 571
Navy missile testing positions
from Patrick Air Force Base at
Cape Canaveral to the subma-
rine base at Kings Bay, Ga.
Among the last actions
affecting Florida were decisions
Friday to send 54 supply jobs


from Hurlburt Field to Scott Air
Force Base, Ill., and 33 engine
maintenance positions from
Tyndall Air Force Base and six
from the Florida Air National
Guard at Jacksonville to New
Orleans.
The commission also
approved a transfer of navigator
training and 625 jobs to
Pensacola from Randolph Air
Force Base, Texas, and 19
avionics repair jobs to Tyndall
from Langley Air Force Base,
Va.
Eglin's major gains would be
1,400 Army special forces
troops from Fort Bragg, N.C.,
and 811 Air Force, Navy and
Marine Corps personnel from
various bases, including 295


reopening
from Pensacola, to establish the
first training program for the
Joint Strike Fighter, expected to
become operational in couple
years.
Jacksonville Naval Air
Station would receive about
1,900 positions associated with
five P-3 Orion patrol plane
squadrons from Brunswick
Naval Air Station, Maine,
which would be closed.
Mayport Naval Station at
Jacksonville would gain about
400 jobs and two warshipsfrom
Pascagoula Naval Station,
.Miss., also being closed.

Associated Press Writer Bill
Kaczor in Pensacola con-
tributed to this report.


the raise awareness about the
dangers of law enforcement
using Taser guns.
The SCLC wanted Porter to
show a special grand jury the
videotape of officers subduing
Williams. It shows a half-
dozen deputies surrounding
Williams and prodding him
repeatedly with the Taser,
which delivers a charge of up


to 50,000 volts. The officers
were trying to put a struggling
Williams, locked in handcuffs
and manacles, into a restrain-
ing chair.
Williams bucked and
appeared to try to push him-
self out of the chair. Within
minutes, he lost conscious-
ness. He died two days later.
Porter presented the case to


a grand jury April 27, but did
not include the videotape. He
said the grand jury, which did
not return any indictments, did
not want to see the video.
Gwinnett County police had
been called to Williams' home
after his'wife said he was
"talking crazy" and had not
taken his epilepsy medication.

bed rate; provided however, that no reim-
bursement shall be made for travel between

thorized school business which requires less

cordance with the mileage chart established
on the office state road map. Reimbursement

tion fees and limousine service when properly

believes that the proposed rule or amendment

crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-
cant adverse effects on competition, employ-
ment, investment, productivity, innovation or
international trade and/or alternative ap-
proaches to the regulatory objective either do
not exist and/or are precluded by law. The
cost to the School District of promulgating the
proposed rule or amendment is estimated to
be $50. The estimated annual cost of imple-
menting and enforcing the proposed rule or
amendment is $0. The text of the proposed
rule or amendment can be obtained at the Su-
-.einrii'ddeis office (Attn. Connie Scobey),

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Resting, but

not sleeping
When my son was a baby,
I rocked him as I gave him
his bottle. When he'd had
his fill, I'd hold him close,
continuing to rock while
singing songs and speaking
lovingly to him.
Sometimes he would fall
asleep in my arms. But,
most of the time, I put him
down awake. After all,
eventually, he would have to
go to bed awake and fall
asleep, just like we all do.
As he got a little older,
there was talk time, story
time and prayer time. But,
then it was lights out and
time for sleep.
Consequently, when my
family babysat and it was
time for him to go to bed,
he went to bed. And my rel-
atives were amazed that he
did so without fussing.
Not everyone approaches
bedtime the same way.
Friends I occasionally visit-
ed on a weekend, put their
daughter to bed with a light
on, music playing and the
door wide open. Sometimes
they jumped through quite a
few hoops before her eyes
closed in sleep.
Once, I threw a big birth-
day party for my son. Lots
of relatives crowded our
apartment and the children
were all playing in his
room.
Toward the end of the
evening, he came out to me
and said, "Mommy, could
you ask all the kids to get
out of my room?"
"Why? They want to play
with you," I replied.
"But, Mommy, I'm tired
and I want to go to bed."
Obviously, bedtime was a
friendly, welcome time for
him. So, I hugged him and
asked him to be kind to his
guests a little longer because
the party was almost over.
As children begin to out-
grow nap time, we can help
them appreciate a quiet time
where they rest, but don't
sleep. Quiet pastimes in
their rooms - reading, puz-
zles, a quiet toy or softly
playing music are fine. The
idea is to nurture the bless-
ing of quiet and solitude.
It prepares them to listen
for God's voice.
"Be still and know that I
am God," says Psalm 46:10.
If children are frantically
running all the time or fight-
ing quiet times and bed
times, they may never learn
what it means to "Come,
unto me" and find "rest."
That is, rest of spirit. Rest
within when everything out-
side is spinning faster than a
top. Rest within that's dis-
played by an attitude of
vitality and vibrant living
reflected in one's counte-
nance and actions.
When God calls us to
rest, he isn't trying to lull us
to sleep; he's seeking to pull
us from an exhausting state

A laser helps Jeff Batz find speeders. Most of the time, he won't pull
a person over if they are traveling at several miles an hour over the
speed limit. 'You can't let your feelings dictate your citations,' he
joked. As a member of the traffic unit, Jeff works an 8 1/2-hour
shift, five days a week, instead of a 12-hour shift with varying days
off like the rest of the department.


Brad Batz (right) and firefighter, Chuck Piper, look for snacks while
shopping at Publix. The firefighters split the cost of meals between
those on duty.

Brad Batz, 35, (top) works as a firefighter while his brother, Jeff, 31, works as a police officer, both for
the city of Sebring. Though they sometimes work the same calls, Brad and Jeff rarely spend much time
together on the job. They stay busy away from work as well, and can't spend as much time together as
they would like.



Batz brothers respond


Though Brad Batz (right) and Jeff Batz often work within several
miles of each other, they rarely respond to the same calls. However,
Jeff visits the fire station and the two spend time together away from
work when they can.


Jeff Batz's duties include moving the speed trailer to various spots
around Sebring where drivers like to speed. 'I can't remember if I
set the alarm on the trailer,' he said.

SEBRING-The radio crackles, and a low
tone is followed by a high tone.
"Central to Station 1, be 51 (en route) to 1691
Pine St., regarding a structure fire." Brad Batz
and his fellow firefighters acknowledge the call
and hurry to their engines. After removing their
shoes, they don their bunker gear and rubber
boots. Lights flash and sirens blare as the fire-
fighters prepare for the unknown.
Every call is different. Some are serious,
while others sound worse when dispatched than
they actually are.
While Brad Batz is en route to the fire scene,


his brother, Jeff, is responding to the call as
well. A Sebring Police officer, and one of two
members of the traffic unit, Jeff will direct traf-
fic around the engines, begin an accident inves-
tigation or perform some other task, depending
on the nature of the call.
The brothers don't always see each other at
work though. In the three years since Jeff
became an officer, the two have responded to
the same scene less than 25 times.
Both men work for the city of Sebring, and
often, both give more time to their job than to
their families. It is ironic that Brad and Jeff
don't see more of each other given their chosen
professions.


Brad Batz finished Emergency Medical Technician school before graduating from Sebring High School.
He completed fire school after graduation, and has been a firefighter since. Away from the station, he
operates B & B Fire Training Inc.

DIVERSIONS



Creative action can motivate your child's behavior


Question: Generally speaking, what
kind of discipline do you use with a teenag-
er who is habitually miserable to live with?
Dr. Dobson: The general rule is to use
action - not anger - to reach an under-
standing. Any time you can get teenagers to
do what is necessary without becoming
furious at them, you are ahead of the game.
Let me provide a few examples of how this
might be accomplished:
(1) In Russia, I'm told that teenagers
who are convicted of using drugs are
denied driver's licenses for years. It is a
very effective approach.
(2) When my daughter was a teenager,
she used to slip into my bathroom and steal
my razor, my shaving cream, my toothpaste
or my comb. Of course, she never brought
them back. Then after she had gone to
school, I would discover the utensils miss-
ing. There I was with wet hair or "fuzzy"
teeth, trying to locate the confiscated items
in her bathroom. It was no big deal, but it
was irritating. Can you identify?
I asked Danae dozen times not to do
this, to no avail. Thus, the phantom struck
without warning one cold morning. I hid
everything she needed to put on her "face,"
and then left for the office. My wife told me
she had never heard such wails and moans
as were uttered that day. Our daughter
plunged desperately through bathroom
drawers looking for her toothbrush, comb
and hair dryer. The problem never resur-
faced.
(3) A family living in a house with a
small hot-water tank was continuallyzfrus-
trated by their teenager's endless showers.
Screaming at him did no good. Once he was


locked behind the bathroom
door, he stayed in the steamy
stall until the last drop of warm
water had been drained.
Solution? In midstream, Dad
stopped the flow of hot water by
turning a valve at the tank. Cold
water suddenly poured from the
nozzle. Junior popped out of the
shower in seconds. Henceforth,
he tried to finish bathing before FO
the faucet turned frigid.
(4) A single mother couldn't ON
get her daughter out of bed in the FA
morning until she announced a
new policy: The hot water would Dr.
be shut off promptly at 6:30 a.m. Do,
The girl could either get up on
time or bathe in ice water.
Another mother had trouble getting her 8-
year-old out of bed each morning. She then
began pouring bowls of frozen marbles
under the covers with him each morning.
They gravitated to wherever his body lay.
The boy arose quite quickly.
(5) Instead of standing in the parking lot
and screaming at students who drive too
fast, school officials put huge bumps in the
road that jar the teeth of those who ignore
them. It does the job quite nicely.
(6) You as the parent have the car that a
teenager needs, the money that he covets
and the authority to grant or withhold priv-
ileges. If push comes to shove, these chips
can be exchanged for commitments to live
responsibly, share the workload at home
and stay off little brother's back.'This bar-
gaining process works for younger kids,

too. I like the "one-to-one" trade-
off for television viewing time. It
permits a child to watch one
minute of television for every
S minute spent reading.
The possibilities are endless,
and they don't depend on anger,
dJ threats and unpleasantness.
Question: Having a child
diagnosed with attention deficit
US disorder can paint a pretty bleak
picture. Is there anything good
HE you can tell us?
i Y Dr. Dobson: There are some
advantages to having attention
mes deficit disorder. In a sense, even
;on the word "disorder" is misleading
because the syndrome has many
positive features. As Time maga-
zine reported, "(ADD adults) see them-
selves as creative; their impulsiveness can
be viewed as spontaneity; hyperactivity
gives them enormous energy and drive;
even their distractibility has the virtue of
making them alert to changes in the envi-
ronment. Kids with ADD are wild, funny,
effervescent. They have lots of life." Let's
not forget, also, that ADD can be treated
successfully in many cases.

Mom is steamed at in-laws who smoked in front of son


Dear Abby: I am a physician and moth-
er who goes to substantial lengths to avoid
subjecting my 6-year-old son, "Brandon,"
to secondhand smoke. My husband and I
feel so strongly about it that we let our
nanny, "Edith," go because she persisted in
smoking around Brandon. (She had stated
on her employment application that she was
a nonsmoker.)
Brandon recently returned from a week-
long visit with my in-laws, "Connie" and
"Fred," out of state. They are both aware of
my concerns regarding secondhand smoke.
When they visit us, Connie smokes outside
or sneaks smokes in the bathroom. Before
we sent Brandon to visit, I explicitly asked
Connie not to smoke indoors during his
visit, and. she agreed.
When Brandon got home, Iwas shocked
- to hear that bile he was there - and with-
out conferring with my husband or me -
Connie and Fred had invited our ex-nanny
to spend part of the week with them.
According to Brandon, Edith and Connie
smoked in the kitchen and living room in
his presence.
I am hurt that my in-laws refused to take
our health concerns to heart. My husband
wants to keep the peace, but suggests we
not allow Brandon any more unsupervised
visits with his grandparents. I feel my hus-
band should discuss their lack of candor in
agreeing not to expose Brandon to cigarette
smoke, and not following through. It also
seems odd that they'd invite an employee
we had terminated to visit without clearing
it with my husband or me. What do you

Dear Mad: Although you may
be itching for a showdown, I see
little to be gained by confronting
your in-laws for their lack of
judgment during their grandson's
visit. By allowing your son no
more unsupervised visits with his
grandparents, you will send a
strong, but subtler, message.
Listen to your husband.
Dear Abby: My husband's


DEAR

Jeanne


sister, "Dayna," is moving here
from her mother's house, 200
miles away. She says she needs to get away
from her mother. My husband, without con-
sulting me, told her she could stay with us.
Dayna and I don't get, along, and never
have. I have problems with my mother-in-
law, too, and I know that within a few
months she'll be moving right behind her
daughter. My husband's family has caused
a lot of problems in our marriage. If there
isn't any commotion in their lives, they
have to create it. We moved here to get
away from them.
If that isn't enough, I am due to give
birth to our third child any day. I cringe
when I think of another adult in our house,
because we don't have room. My husband
says he told Dayna she'll have to find a
place of her own within a couple of weeks,
but I don't see that happening. She doesn't
even have a car.


This has caused me super-
S stress. I would like to enjoy our
S new baby as stress-free as possi-
ble, but it won't happen with my
S sister-in-law around. Please help.
- About to Deliver in Kansas
Dear About to Deliver: Tell
/ your husband that with your due
date so close, having another
adult in a crowded house will not
ABBY work. Then pick up the phone,
call your sister-in-law and inform
Phillips her that with the arrival of the
S new baby, you'll be unable to
accommodate her after all.
Therefore, she'll have to stay elsewhere
while she looks for a job and lodging - or
postpone hr escape from her mother. Do it
r4OW. Nothing is more important than your
health and well-being and that of your
baby - at this time.

While library mail
can bring bills, and
lots of sales pitch
brochures, it also
contains colorful cat-

Carol Hesselink


" C o o k s
Illustrated" is one of my
favorite periodicals, maybe
because its food pictures aren't
photographs, but beautiful
drawings. I've often thought
some of them could be copied
on the color copier and used as
kitchen art.
It's said that some eat to live
and others live to eat. The sub-
ject of food is endlessly fasci-
nating and new recipes as well
as time-tested favorites contin-
ue to enter our store shelves and
cookbooks. Authors know that
we are always either thinking
about eating, or will be eating
again, soon.
Since food is such a necessi-
ty of life, it's no wonder that we
are intrigued by food titles and
nowhere except in the cook-
book aisle are there more food
titles than in the fiction section.
Take a look with me at our
many suspense/mystery book
titles, and you'll find yourself
drooling before we're through.
What could be a better com-
bination than to be both a writer
and a chef? Anthony Bourdain,


chef at The Supper
Club in New York
City, titled his first
book "Bone in the
Throat," giving us a
gangster comedy set
in (naturally) a
restaurant, in New
York's Little Italy.
His second book,
"Bobby Gold
Stories," added
women cooks to the
gangster, restaurant


mix.
Lou Jane Temple knows
which side her bread is buttered
on-with "Bread on Arrival"
telling the lurid tale of a cater-
er's life (or death) in Kansas
City. She travels to New
Orleans for her southern-fla-
vored "Red Beans and Vice,"
then it's on to feature a family-
owned chocolate business in
"Death is Semisweet." Stick
with Lou Jane and she'll mix in
other favorites: "The Cornbread
Killer," "Death by Rhubarb" or
"The Spice Box."
Nancy Pickard must have
been sitting in on cooking class-
es to come up with "The Secret
Ingredient Murder," "27
Ingredient Chili Con Carne
Murders" and "The Blue Corn
Murders."
Joanne Pence mixes in
California cuisine with her
titles "Two Cooks A-killing,"
"If Cooks Could Kill," and
other helpful homicides such as
"Cooking Up Trouble,"
"Something's Cooking" and
"Cook's Night Out."
If you enjoy the more exotic,


try the Jerrilyn Farmer books
"Dim Sum Dead," "Mumbo
Gumbo" or "The Flaming Luau
of Death."
Even those who have experi-
enced the educational
Elderhostel trips get a new
viewpoint when they read the
Peter Abresch book, "Killing
Thyme."
Travel to California with
Nadia Gordon and enjoy her
Napa Valley mysteries, "Death
by the Glass" and "Murder
Alfresco."
"Cooks Illustrated" back
issues are readily available,
plus all those recipe books on
the shelves in our 641 section.
There you'll find frying, bak-
ing, freezing, drying, sauteing,
braising, grilling, and canning
recipes, information, pictures,
and instructions enough to feed
one or the entire county! Add in
our books and videos on fishing
and hunting, and raising domes-
tic fowl, fish and animals, and
you have the entire cycle of
food from egg to plate.

Miss America is packing up her

tiara and leaving Atlantic City


By JOHN CURRAN
Associated Press Writer
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -
- Fighting for its survival, the
Miss America beauty pageant is
taking to the road, hoping to
reinvigorate the tired franchise
by finding a new city and arena.
The 84-year-old pageant told
the city Thursday it can't afford
to continue losing money by
producing the annual pageant at
Boardwalk Hall and that it will
either move it to a new city or
go on the road permanently like
the Super Bowl.
The pageant is in financial
straits and last year lost its
broadcast network TV contract
with ABC. Pageant CEO Art
McMaster said the show could
save $1 million by finding a
new venue that could pay a site
fee and produce it for less
money.
"We don't need to break
even. We need to put money in
our pockets," said McMaster,
who took over the ailing non-
profit group that runs Miss
America in 2004.
He told the Atlantic City
Convention & Visitors
Authority at a board meeting
that the state's $725,000 annual
subsidy to Miss America wasn't
enough and he wanted the
agency to release it from the
last two years of its five-year
contract.


,,l,



1:".I


Stunned board members
agreed, but with strings
attached: Ten Atlantic City
appearances a year,by the reign-
ing Miss America, permanent
license to use the Miss America
name, brands and logos, and
advertising spots in the
pageant's program book.
The organization's main
office will continue to operate
out of Atlantic City.
Under a TV deal with coun-


try music channel CMT that
was announced in June, this
year's Miss America pageiht
was moved from its typical
autumn slot to January.
But neither the pageant nor
the network said where the next
pageant would be held, fueling
speculation the event would
head to Nashville, Tenn., where
CMT is based. McMaster
insisted that no deal or offer
was on the table elsewhere.

YMCA kids spend day at hammock

and tram
of the park


What do you get when you
mix 100 kids at 94 degrees for
four hours? The answer, of
course, is a hot, sweaty adven-
ture!
The Highlands County
YMCA recently brought its
summer camp students to
Highlands Hammock State Park
for a field trip. Kids from age 5
to young teens were able to
experience the park in different
ways. As soon as the buses
- arrived, the YMCA staff hustled
the kids into small groups to
begin their adventure.
One-third of them headed for
the Civilian Conservation
Corps Museum. They delighted
over the interactive exhibits, the

Ranger Blake Lewis was the


tram operator for the three tram
tours around the park's shady
Loop Drive. This was a popular
part of the trip due to the cool-
ing breeze it generated. Kids
also got to see a couple of alli-
gators, one or two deer and a
variety of butterflies.
Park Services Specialist
Dorothy Harris led the groups
on nature walks on the Cypress
Swamp Trail. During this por-
tion of their adventure, we saw
a swimming alligator, a sunning
anhinga, a bronze frog, a flock
of yellow-rumped warblers, and
large numbers of fishing spi-
ders. The fishing spiders
seemed to be the highlight of
the tour, for both those that did,
and those that did not, really
enjoy seeing spiders.
The large, furry, chocolate-
brown bodies of these fishing
spiders were found on nearly all
the cypress trees, close to the
water line. Each one seemed
larger than the one spotted
before. We even found a molted
skin next to one of the spiders,
which delighted several of the
more outdoorsy campers as it
was passed around. This shed
skin, seemingly as light as the


air itself, offered an "
up close view of the
spider's hairy body,
fangs, and "face,"
without campers hav-
ing to contend with
the creepy, crawly
spider.

financial concerns


instead of worrying


Aries (March 21 - HORO
April 20) - ThisHO
week you'll find temp- Met
station everywhere you Se
look. it would be easy
to give in, but you
know you'll be better off if you
don't. Stick to your guns, and
let your resolve be your reward.
If you feel yourself slipping,
turn to a special friend or loved
one who will be more than
eager to help.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Lately, you've felt like
you're invincible. Problems
early in the week will bring you
back down to earth, and you'll
be reminded that you're not
perfect. Don't be too hard on
yourself. Everyone slips up
now and then. Problems will
blow over more quickly if you
own up to your mistakes and
show an eagerness to mend
fences.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- You've been willing to take
on more responsibility, and
some of your co-workers are
taking advantage of that.
You've been afraid of stepping
on toes, but now it's time to
take a stand before the load you
are carrying becomes over-
whelming. You'll find out who
your real allies are, and that
may surprise you.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- You've been working over-
time to find the solutions to
several problems in your life.
An unexpected turn of events
will bring a resolution to all of
them, and you'll feel like a
weight has been lifted off your
shoulders. You've may have
had a hard time recently, but
you've gained more wisdom
than you realize.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23)-
You've been fighting to have
your own way recently - but
what have you accomplished?
You can't always have every-
thing you want, but somethnes
compromise and diplomacy can
get you halfway there. As the
old saying goes, you can catch
more flies with honey than you
can with vinegar.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Two people you care about
are at odds, and you've been
caught in the middle. While
you've been trying to make the
peace between them, it may be
time to step back and let the
feuding parties work things out
themselves. You can't solve
everyone's problems, and you

COPES caught in the crossfire.
- Libra (Sept. 23 -
News
ce Oct. 23) - You've
,ice
been handed some dis-
appointing setbacks.
Now is the time to re-evaluate
your goals and consider the
direction your life is headed.
Instead of being discouraged,
consider that life's trials and
tribulations can open new
doors. Instead of languishing in
one place, ask yourself what
else you could be doing.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- Family issues will dominate
your week. While you may be
quick to stand up for what you
want, listen to others and look
for situations where you can
compromise. Getting your own
way may seem appealing, but
that can be short-sighted. You
will be happier when everyone
is happy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - You are usually outgo-
ing, but this week you may be
feeling down in the dumps this
week for no particular reason.
It's OK if you're not always the
life of the party. Take a break
from social engagements, and
recharge your battery. You'll
soon be your old self again. A
friend will give you a boost
later in the week.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - You've been stewing
about a situation that didn't go
your way. Whether that has
been a relationship, a job or a
family disagreement, it's time
to let it go. Once you can get
past your black mood, you will
see the silver lining in this dark
cloud, and be prepared to move
on.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb.
19) - You have an important
decision to make, and you've
been waffling. Your brain may
be leading you in one direction,
and yet your gut instincts are
telling you that this is not the
way to go. Don't move -ahead
until all of your questions are
resolved, and you feel at peace
about the road ahead.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- You've been preoccupied
with financial concerns. Instead
of getting worked up, take a
hard look at where your money
is going. You'll find the places
where it is slipping through the
cracks. With a little self-disci-
pline, you can be back on track.
Don't be afraid to ask older and
wiser friends for their advice.

Keeping your pets safe from household poisons


* Second in a series
Today we will continue with
the "10 tips for preventing poi-
soning"
5. Keep all pre-
scription and over-
the-counter drugs out '
of your pet's reach,
preferably in closed
cabinets. Pain killers,
cold medicines, anti-
cancer drugs, antide-
pressants, vitamins, 4
and diet pills are R
common examples
of human medication SE
that could be poten-
tially lethal even in Hi
small dosages. One Co
regular-strength Gairt
ibuprofen tablet of
200 mg could cause
stomach ulcers in a 10-pound
dog.
6. Never leave chocolates
unattended. Approximately
one-half once or less of baking
chocolate per pound body
weight can cause problems.
Even small amounts can cause
pancreatic problems.


By MICHELLE ROBERTS
Associated Press Writer
PHOENIX - As a professor
at Northern Arizona University,
Cathy Small' was baffled by
undergraduates. They seemed
less engaged, less likely to do
assigned reading and more like-
ly to ask questions like "Do you
want it double-spaced?"
So she decided to study them
as anthropologists research any
foreign culture - she lived
among them.
After moving into a dorm,
eating cafeteria food and strug-
* gling with a five-course sched-
ule, the 50-something Small
said she empathized with stu-
dents who struggle to balance
chaotic class and work sched-
ules.
"I'm trying to get really to
what student culture is doing
and tailor my teaching," said
Small, who wrote a book on her
research under the pseudonym
Rebekah Nathan called "My
Freshman Year: What a
Professor Learned by
Becoming a Student."
Small took a sabbatical and
spent the 2002-03 school year
conducting her research. With
approval from the university's
research board, she used her
high school transcript to get
admitted and moved into a
dorm - though she did forgo
the roommate experience by
getting a single room.
She told students what she
was doing if they asked, but
found that most of them didn't,
perhaps assuming she was just
one of those who return to
school at an older age.
Small spent the first semester

taking classes outside her field
of expertise, trying to immerse
herself in student life. She did-
n't go to her Flagstaff home and
didn't contact regular friends,
trying to experience the loneli-
ness and other travails of fresh-
man life.
During her second semester,
she did more formal interviews
and focused on the research,-
which she published without
identifying students or the uni-
versity, although it eventually
was outed by the media.
Small said she found that stu-
dents downplayed publicly the
effort they put into assigned
reading or papers, but when
interviewed, many said they
were interested in their course
work.
Her surveys also found that
only abput a third of what stu-
dents were talking and thinking
about outside of class was
based on their course work.
That finding has led Small to
change her coursework to better
connect to the real world and to
skip reading assignments that
don't have a direct purpose.
Part of the trick to college
life, she learned from good stu-

8. All automotive products
such as oil, gasoline, and
antifreeze, should be stored in
areas away from pet access. As
little as one teaspoon of
antifreeze (ethylene glycol) can
be deadly in a 7-pound cat and
less than one tablespoon could
be lethal to a 20-pound dog.
9. Before buying or using
flea produces on your pet or in
your household contact your
veterinarian to discuss what
types of flea products are rec-
ommended for your pet. Read
all information before using a
product on your animals or in
your home. If a product is for
use only on dogs, it should
never be used on cats; if a prod-
uct is for use only on cats, it
should never be used on dogs.

dents, was being able to quickly
decipher what work needed to
be done and what could be
skipped. Those management
skills helped students balance
classes, part time work and
involvement in volunteer or
professional groups, Small said.
She found some of the
coursework tough and had to
seek tutoring for a class far out-
side her field of study. "It was a
hectic life," she said.
Small also said she found
current undergraduates faced
more pressure to pick a major
that readily translated into a job
that could pay off student loans.
Travis Shumake, student
body president and a senior at
NAU's School of Hotel and
Restaurant Management, said
he sees that all the time - stu
dents choosing his program
because it provides the "fastest
results at the highest income."
Small said her generation
wasn't as career-oriented in col
lege.
"It was an era of anti-materi
alism. It was kind of nerdy then
to talk about careers," she said.
"Now, different things are
nerdy."

'Bonding with Baby' books foster child development in infants and toddlers


Series was

developed by early

childhood

educators to foster

bonding in families
Book News Network
Reading to children is impor-
tant, but newborns need much
more than the sound of a par-
ent's voice. Now there's a new
kind of book that sparks loving
interaction - touch, communi-
cation and play - and provides
infants with the feelings of
security they need.
By using these books, an
involved parent can help grow a
child's ability to focus and com-
municate, to be imaginative,
curious and confident and get
along well with others-skills
needed for success in school
and in life.
The book series was created
by Developing Hearts, an early
childhood education non-profit
who needed a set of fun-to-use
tools that fostered bonding and
whole child development
before reading. To make sure
the books were effective with
new families, they were evalu-
ated in independent research
with new parents by Dr. Grover
J. Whitehurst, Pediatric
Psychologist at the State
University of New York.
Results showed that Bonding


Book News Network
'Bonding with Baby' books forge a bond between parents and their
babies as they foster an interest in reading.


with Baby books brought par-
ents and infants closer together
and both got significantly more
enjoyment out of sharing them.
The Bonding with Baby
books are unique in many ways.
It is a series of four books that is


geared to key developmental
stages of baby's first 12 months
(Security, Discovery, Play and
Dialogue). These books do not
have any words, but feature
beautiful Point and Share pic-
tures that inspire parents to


communicate and connect with
their babies. The stories in each
book capture those special
times together that parents
delight in and babies love to
experience over and over again.
These books are ideal for
working parents because they
get moms and dads to forget
about their busy day, relax and
go into baby's world. First-time
parents will appreciate this
book series too knowing they
have the right book for the right
time. Sharing a Bonding with
Baby book is one of the most
emotionally satisfying ways a
parent can maximize quality
time.
"Based on the results I've
seen with new babies," says
Tom Berquist, Executive
Director of Developing Hearts,
"I believe these books are a
'must have' developmental tool
for all parents." The Bonding
with Baby books not only help
parents foster full social, emo-
tional, physical and cognitive
development, but also stimulate
an early love of books and read-
ing. "Because they both enjoy
this quiet time together with
books," states Berquist, "books
come to 'feel good' to baby like
a favorite blanket and that is the
first step in learning to read."
Bonding with Baby is sold in
a boxed series of four books
that makes a timely baby show-
er gift for a new parent. The


durable board books are safe
and sized just right for baby's
tiny fingers. Parents can also go
on line on
www.BondingWithBaby.org
and find out how they can start
book-sharing with their baby.
The publisher, Developing


Hearts Systems, is a nonprofit
organization and all proceeds
from the sales of Bonding with
Baby support supplying the
books to families in need
through organizations such As
Healthy Families America and
the Public Library Association.

Non-native Cuban tree frogs are


annoying but harmless to people


The topic of this article has
been generated from complaints
about an overabundance of
unknown frogs hanging out
around local homes.
Horror stories described
huge frogs that come out at
dusk and gather on eves and
gutters of homes. When dis-
turbed they scream like the
wailing cry of a baby. One
woman said that when one of
these frogs landed on a child's
arm, the skin became irritated
and a blotchy red spot
appeared. I vowed to find out
what kind of frog was becom-
ing such a nuisance.
The answer: The Cuban tree
frog. The Cuban tree frog is the
largest tree frog in North
America (1.5 to 5 inches in
body length), however it is not
native to North America. This
species was introduced to
southern Florida from the
Caribbean and has continued to
spread in Florida. Cuban tree
frogs have been documented as
far north as Cedar Key on the
Gulf Coast, Jacksonville on the
Atlantic Coast, and the Orlando
area in mid-Florida, and they
are expanding their range.
The distinguishing character-
istics of the Cuban tree frog are:
* The size of the adults (up
to 5 inches in body length,
much larger than native Florida
tree frogs).
* Enormous toe pads (larger
than toe pads of native tree
frogs in Florida).
* Bumpy skin on the back,
like skin of a toad; and skin on
top of head is fused to skull.
Cuban tree frogs can vary in
color - from pale tan and pale
green without markings to dark
green or brown with an even
darker color pattern on the back
and legs. The Cuban tree frogs
that were described to me were
white to gray in color, indicat-
ing that they were either inac-
tive or cold.
The Cuban tree frog is not
poisonous. Like most tree frogs,
it has a slimy film to protect its
- skin from drying out. The secre-
tions can irritate the skin and
eyes of some people. That
would explain the irritated skin
on the child who had a frog land
on the arm. Be sure to wash
your hands after handling any


frog or toad.
The Cuban tree
frog is considered an
invasive exotic
species because they
cause the gradual dis- .
appearance of the
other frogs, toads and
even lizards. Cuban .
tree frogs are vora-
cious eaters - and NEWS
unfortunately they eat
Florida's native frogs, T
toads, and lizards, in WATEI
addition to insects and
spiders. In fact, Cuban Jennifer
tree frogs are so suc-
cessful at taking over
habitat and eating
Florida's native species that
they are considered a threat to
the biodiversity of Florida's
native ecosystems and wildlife.
The threat that the Cuban tree
frog pose upon native species is
so great that some biologists
recommend euthanizing them.
Just make sure the frog you
have is a Cuban tree frog before
euthanizing it. Two similar tree
frog species are squirrel tree
frogs and green tree frogs. Both
of these species are native to
Florida. A good test to deter-
mine if a frog is a Cuban tree
frog is to grasp the frog firmly
but gently, and try to move the
skin around on the top of the
frog's head with your fingertip.
The skin on the head of a Cuban
tree frog is fused to the top of
the skull and won't move.
There are humane methods
of euthanizing frogs. Purchase a
small tube of benzocaine oint-
ment, which is used in humans
as a pain-killer for toothaches.
There are several well-adver-
tised brands as well as much
less expensive store brands.
Simply take a strip of ointment
about 1 inch long (perhaps
more for larger frogs) and
spread it down the midline of
the neck and back of each frog.
In 5-10 minutes the animal will
be groggy; in 15-20 minutes it
should be unconscious, and in
about 30-40 minutes it will be
close to dead or dead.
At this point, put the frog in a
plastic container and freeze it
for three days. Why? Because
we want to ensure that the frog
dies - we don't want a heavily
drugged frog to be buried and


Tennis star raises voice on

behalf of cats and dogs


Associated Press
NEW YORK - John
McEnroe is raising his well-
known voice, this time in
defense of cats and dogs.
McEnroe, a winner of seven
Grand Slam titles, stars in a
new public service announce-
ment for People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals.
In the lighthearted spot to
debut during U.S. Open cover-
age next week, McEnroe pokes
fun at himself by unleashing a
trademark tirade sure to get
people interested in cat and dog
overpopulation.
When an actor seemingly


challenges McEnroe's decision
to neuter his dog, McEnroe
responds: "You cannot be seri-
ous! ... It's the most important
thing you can do for homeless
animals!
"Did you know that shelters
have to kill more than 4 million
animals every year just because
there's not enough good homes
out there? I can't have that on
my conscience! Can you?"
The actor then points to
McEnroe's dog, dressed in a
pink sweater and hat. "I was
actually talking about the outfit.
... It's ostentatious. Sorry."

r Donze


later wake up 2 feet
underground. That
would not be
humane. After three
days, dispose of the
carcass by burying it
deep enough so that
a pet or wild animal
will not dig it up, or
place it in a plastic
bag and put it in the
trash.
Freezing is a
humane way .to kill
amphibians because
their bodies go into a
state of torpor
(metabolism slows
way down) -just as


they do in cold weather outside.
If the cold weather is short in
duration, the frogs will come
out of their torpor state.
However, after an extended
time in freezing temperatures,


and insects attract frogs. If the
frogs don't move elsewhere
after several nights, then try
erecting a light as far as possi-
ble from your house - hope-
fully the frogs will go over to
that light to feed on insects, etc.
There is no frog repellent or
chemical to use to keep them
away from your house. If the
above methods don't work, buy
better ear plugs and run a fan in
your bedroom to create "white
noise" to help drown out the
calling pf frogs.
A great source of information,'
about frogs and toads is the

Extension Web site

Prisoners stripped naked, a prisoner led around by a
leash and dogs used for intimidation were some of the
tactics employed by Pfc. Lynndie England, Pvt. Charles
A. Graner Jr. and their fellow MPs at Abu Ghraib
prison in Iraq. Now a new military investigation con-
firms that the very same methods for breaking down a
prisoner's will also were part of the interrogation tech-
niques-utilized in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This suggests
that Abu Ghraib was not a horror show dreamed up by
a few bored soldiers or the work of "a few bad apples"
as President Bush has suggested, but part of a broader
interrogation policy approved at the highest levels of
the military. Yet the Pentagon has no stomach for hold-
ing those at the top accountable.
The military report presented to a congressional com-
mittee last month found some high-level Guantanamo
detainees were subjected to a variety of "aggressive"
interrogation tactics. Those included being subject to
extreme temperatures, forced to stand naked in front of
female soldiers and menaced by dogs.
The report concludes that most of these techniques
were "authorized" and therefore acceptable.
It is not a coincidence that the same commander,
Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, was in charge of
Guantanamo during the time these tactics were
employed and in Iraq in September 2003 to set things
up at Abu Ghraib. ... But unlike Graner, who is facing
10 years in prison for his participation in the mistreat-
ment, Miller appears untouchable. The military over-
ruled the report's recommendation that Miller be repri-
manded for allowing a particularly degrading and abu-

An editorial excerpt from the St. Petersburg Times.

Florida's four hurricanes last year caused $19 billion
in insured wind damage but could not uproot tourism.
Despite the heavy hits from storms, the state hosted
5.2 million more visitors last year than theyear before.
Gov. Jeb Bush said the
79.8 million tourists were

Tourism directly employs 912,700 Floridians.
Tourism's strong showing in spite of last year's
unusual hurricane season shows just how resilient
Florida's biggest industry remains. It's a reminder that
Floridians may need again later, if not sooner.

An editorial excerpt from The Florida Times-Union.

Later this month, George W. Bush will surpass
Ronald Reagan as our most vacationing president. Bush
is in the midst of a five-week vacation, the longest sus-
tained R&R since Richard Nixon, who liked his vaca-
tions so much he owned beachfront homes on both
coasts.
Bush is taking some modest political heat for being
away so long while the war is on, but the truth is the
American people have never begrudged their chief
executives time off.
August is the traditional vacation month for both
Bush and the French. And The Associated Press is
reporting that because of rising costs and unemploy-
ment, the French are not vacationing as much as usual.
But, before we start grieving in sympathy over those
lost days on the Riviera, consider that the French aver-
age seven weeks of paid vacation and are guaranteed by
law at least five.
Maybe it's reading too much into the disparity in our
time Off and their time off, but it looks mightily like the
gauntlet of leisure has been flung down. The French
think we Americans work too hard and enjoy life too
little. We can't have the French feeling sorry for us.
When he gets back to Washington, the president
should think about institutionalizing the five-week
vacation for all of us - although not in Crawford.
Seven weeks might be a little extreme ... but five weeks
would enable Americans to look at the French sunglass-
es to sunglasses.
Tax cuts, private accounts, No Child Left Behind and
the' FBI checking library records is all well and good,
but if Bush is really interested in a legacy it would be
hard to beat this: "President George W. Bush. Father of
his country's five-week vacation. Vive le president!"

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


A bird flies the nest and Mom faces reality


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927


Should majority

take the lead?
Editor:
The steps described by a
recent letter to the editor get
my enthusiastic approval to get
the United States out of the
problems of the world.
To get down to the nitty-grit-
ty, we are spread too thin by
trying to solve the world's
crises all over the globe.
However, some problems need
serious consideration but
always bring on further issues.
For example: The situation in
Iraq has been continuously
compared to Viet Nam.
But, taking a look at Viet
Nam, the Armed Forces in Viet
Nam did not lose a single bat-
tle, including the Tet Offensive.
The biggest battle was fought
� on the home front by the media
and by politicians who Avanted
to run the war frojn Washington
D.C.
Here, again we have the
same old story - the media
and politicians leading the crit-
icism against the war but offer-
.ing no solutions to their criti-
cism.
If we leave now, Iraq will
disintegrate into regional and
tribal conflict and revolution.
Of course, this will be blamed
on the interference of the
United States but it will result
in radical Islam taking over by
Iranian and Taliban forces and
"Death to America" again
becomes the-slogan throughout
the region and could possibly
result in the death of the United
States as we know it.
Too many of our college pro-
fessors (Sami Al Arian and
Ward Churchhill for example)
and many politicians subscribe
to a "one-world government."
But throughout history the only
means of controlling a popula-
tion is an autocratic govern-
ment, either military or dicta-
torship, and the majority of
those governments have result-
ed in failure sooner or later.
It seems inevitable that
democracies end in anarchy by
permissive regulations such as
we see in the recent activities
of the American Civil Liberties
Union, the Supreme Court rul-
ings of legislation from the
bench and other far left activi-
ties such as gay marriage, legal
drug culture, etc. Thus, the
cycle repeats itself- democra-
cy leads to liberalism, which
leads to anarchy, and anarchy is
overcome by suppressive
autocracy, in turn overthrown
by the people.
The majority of today's
demonstrators, whether in
Washington D.C. or Crawford,
Texas, are anarchists who trav-
el from one demonstration to
the next and are supported by a
segment of the wealthy who
would use them to gain power


'S

The fact I would cry
at some point was a LAURA'
given.
Don knew it, John
Laura
knew it, all my friends
knew it, and I knew it.
My hope was I wouldn't burst
into tears in front of the whole
college.
We had spent two days driv-
ing from our home in Florida to
this small university in western
Tennessee. The van was packed
with the things John would take
with him for his new home - a
dorm room. These included a
computer, a two-drawer filing
cabinet, and several suitcases
filled with clothes and linens.
John did some of the driving
on that long journey. I looked at
him over these past few days as
I have in the past few months,
with wonder. I can still remem-
ber when 'he was so small I
could hold him comfortably in
one arm. Now he towers over
me, well over six feet tall.
When did his voice get so
deep? Will he always look like


for the, next phase, of governi-
ment.
So, history repeats itself for
those who fail to study history.
We no longer have a democra-
cy in the United States. We
have a political autocracy run
by the professional politicians
who have made it their lifetime
career and control Congress.
The Tafts from Ohio, the
Kennedys of Massachusetts,
Byrd from West Virginia, etc. \
Until the situation becomes
really critical, the voting public
will continue to be apathetic.
When only about 50 percent of
registered voters bother to vote,
nothing will change except
more power to the politicians.
And the 'country will suffer
from "pork-barrel politics,"
unchallenged illegal aliens who
cost billions of dollars in health
costs, drugs, crime, etc.
We have had about 1,800
plus deaths in Iraq in two-and-
a-half years. What is the mur-
der rate in Washington, D.C.,
Detroit, or Los Angeles in the
last two-and-a half years and
by whom? Could it be time the
majority again took over con-
trol of government?

Nelson can't

Editor:
I find it very interesting that
Senator (Bill) Nelson is getting
into the gas price war.
He evidently did not read the
article that our president, our
government, or House of
Representatives or Senate has
not one thing they can do about
gas prices.
Senator Nelson does not
mention that the country of
China has now thousands of
automobiles than it did one

I knew this day was coming -
this time of severing more of
the apron strings that bound
him to me. Don and I knew that
this was a process, that one
doesn't let go all of a sudden,
but step by step. This was the
biggest step of all.
As the days of John stepping
into the college world
approached, I know I asked
myself all kinds of questions. I
have said in the past that John
was the first teenager I ever
raised. That much is true.
Because he was the first, he got
two parents who were inexperi-
enced and not yet broken in.
Obviously, mistakes were
made. (This is not to say we're

Senator Nelson, running for
election, naturally is getting
into the gas war prices. He sug-
gests putting a price limit on
the costs of gas in United
States.
I would love to know how
anyone could get away with
that ... you will not find gas at
any gas station. He think some-
one is going to sell you gas for
your car where they take a loss.
They will close the pumps
down and you will use all your
gas trying to find an open gas
station.
He forgets the amount of
taxes that come out of the gal-
lon of gasoline. Why does not
the states, and federal govern-
ment stop collecting taxes on
every gallon that would bring
down the price. Oh no, your
state and federal government
need to charge you taxes to pay
for the upkeep of the highways
you travel and the American
public would never put up with
inferior roads and traffic jams
going back to the two-lane
highways over the nation.
Why not have gas rationing?
People do not realize that the
world is growing every day
with more nations becoming
populated, and that population
drives automobiles using the
same gasoline we Americans
do.
I think Senator Nelson thinks
that half the world is still using
the horse and buggy to go from
one place to another.
In fact, if Senator Nelson
would have said to the public,
"Go buy your self a horse and
buggy," I would believe he
would be more sincere on find-
ing a solution for gas prices.
Of course, today you might
find you would rather pay the

1 think most parents at one
point in time or another ask
themselves if they are doing a

Women prepare

for new home

Editor:
A house built solely by
women. Can it be done?
Of course!
Habitat for Humanity affili-
ates have been holding
women's builds for years,
throughout the country and
around the world. More than
450 of Habitat's 200,000
homes have been built by
women crews since 1991.
Habitat International has
now formalized those efforts
through its Women Build pro-
gram, and the women of
Highlands County and Habitat
have partnered in a determined
effort to end substandard hous-
ing.
This past year, Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity
built its first Women Build
home for Gloria Bryant in Avon
Park. The home was sponsored
by Home Interiors & Gifts and
was dedicated on June 11.
Home Interiors & Gifts has
agreed to again sponsor our
next Women Build home.
Sheriff Susan Benton will
lead the building of our second
Women Build home for
DeShawndra Mathis, located at
1619 Colmar Ave. in Sebring.
The building will begin with a
ground breaking ceremony on
Saturday, Sept. 24, at 9:30 a.m.
Habitat for Humanity is a
non-profit, Christian organiza-
tion dedicated to eliminating
poverty housing. Habitat brings
together people with resources
and people in need to build
simple, decent, affordable
houses. The houses are sold to
those in need at no profit,
through no-interest loans.
Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity was founded in
1990 and has build 72 homes in
this community.
Come out and help us cele-
brate the ground breaking for
this Women Build as we do our
part to eliminate substandard
housing in Highlands County.

Yes, I cried. I didn't make
quite the fool of myself I
thought I might, but there were
tears shed. To his-credit, John
put up with them with a mini-
mum of eye rolling.
I am more fortunate than my
parents were in this day of the
Internet. We no longer are
restricted to expensive long dis-
tance calls or snail mail for con-
tact. E-mail and various chat
programs give us more opportu-
nities for communication than
there were in the past, though
they still haven't figured out
how to drag long detailed
answers out of your college stu-
dent when you ask how things
are going.

pride, and joy.

tough year, I'll tell you.
It started with a weekend
storm. Nothing much. People
packing in sandbags. Figured
the coast would get the worst of
it ....
Then it turned inland and tore
up Arcadia, Wauchula and Lake

the first time in 30 years. Gas-
prices rose sharply and have
kept rising since then. They're
twice as much now.
Ice, water - and ice water,
for that matter - got really
rare. Meat was rare, or medium

and followers, too.
I wonder how anyone can
look at the intricacies of the nat-
ural world and still follow the
questionable evolution theory.
Even without reading the Bible,
we can see, feel, smell, hear and
taste the work of One who is
orderly and intelligent - far
beyond our feeble attempts to
explain him away.
"For since the creation of the
world God's invisible qualities
- his eternal power and divine
nature - have been clearly
seen, being understood from
what has been made, so that
men are without excuse."
(Romans 1: 20, NIV)
For ages, the Bible has
remained a steady,
dependable source of
truth. It has withstood
lone the test of time - even
but when many sought to
case destroy it and mislead
the masses.
e to Like the geese, I've
800 learned to listen to the
reliable honkingg" of
e to those whose homing
ess; "instincts" (conscience,
convictions and faith)
,rit- have reliably been lead-
sub- ing me home all along
- and not to a hopeless


dead end. The natural world
exudes a sense of wonder mnd
mystery.
In Job 38-41, God answers
the questions of Job and his
friends by asking a few ques-
tions of his own.
"Where were you when 1 laid
the earth's foundation? Tell me,
if you understand. Who marked
off its dimensions? Surely you
know! Who stretched a measur-
ing line across it?" (Job 38: 4 &
5, NIV)
God's questions continue,
"Have you ever given orders to
the morning, or shown the
dawn its place..." (12). "Who
endowed the heart with wisdom
or gave understanding to the
mind?" (36)
"Do you give the horse his
strength or clothe his neck with
a flowing mane?" (Job 39:19)
"Does the hawk take flight by
your wisdom ... does the eagle
soar at your command and build
his nest on high?" (26a & 27)
It's a good thing to question
and search for truth. However,
it's quite another to deliberately
seek to discredit God's Woid.
Listen as God speaks again.
"Shall the one who contends
with the Almighty correct Him?
He who rebukes God, let him
answer it." (Job 40: 2, NKJV)
Our questions of origin will
be answered if we but follow
the righteous, truthful Leader.

The birds didn't worry about
being misled. They trusted their
leader and their own homing
instincts. It's a little different
for human beings.
We have the capacity to
think, understand and make
decisions based on the informa-
tion we have. We also have a
conscience that nudges us to
know the difference between
right and wrong.

Coretta Scott
King recovering
from stroke
Associated Press
ATLANTA - The widow of
civil rights leader Red. Martin
Luther King Jr. will remain at a
hospital for at least another
month undergoing rehabilita-
tion for a heart attack and
stroke, Coretta Scott King's
doctor said Friday.
The 78-year-old King is
being fed by mouth now and is
able to say a few short sen-
tences at a time, mostly "I love
you" when she sees a family
member, said Dr. Maggie
Mermin at Piedmont Hospital
in Atlanta.
But she said King - who
had a mild heart attack and a
major stroke on Aug. 2 - is
not able to speak for any dura-
tion.
The doctor said during a
Friday news conference that
-,,.the blood thinner King is on
reduces her risk of stroke by 30
percent but says there is no
assurance she will not suffer
another stroke.

Sports Writer
AVON PARK - The play-
ers have changed, and so has
the system of head coach
Christie Hipps.
After getting swept out of
the district tournament by
Mulberry last year, the Lady
Red Devils have switched
their formation from a 4-2 to
a 6-2, meaning experienced
and young players alike must
adjust to a style of play that
requires more movement and
more quick thinking.
"They've got to get used to
it, because we just started on
it this year, so they've got to
get in there and get in their
spots," she said. "It's kind of
hard, because I'm trying to
adjust to what position
they're in right now, so I'm
just kind of like getting my
feel for everybody in a differ-
ent position."
Hitters Cori Murphy,
Amanda Tindell, Vonia
Walters and Kysi Wooden are


the four returning starters,
and Hipps wants them to set-
tle in quickly and excel.
"I'm looking for them to
do something big this year,
step up," she said.
Hipps is encouraged that
they, along with experienced
reserves Danielle West and
Jessica Cormier, are meshing
well with the six new addi-
tions.
"They get along well as a
team. That's one key thing
that I can say - they get
along very well, on and off
the court," she said. "Our
main thing is that we just
need to stay focused.".
Hipps stopped short of set-
ting any specific accomplish-
ment as the team's goal, but
said the ability of the Devils
to embrace the cohesion and
mental readiness required by
the 6-2 should determine their
fate.
"They're capable of so
much. When they work
together, it's like dynamite,"
she said. "If they get in and
use their mind and use their
brain, and get in there, it all
falls in place."

on 10-for-20 passing and the Devils
won the first half, which was their
goal for the game, and substituted
freely in the second half.
Ridge Community: Lost to Winter
Haven 26-0.
Game Notes
The Red Devils will try to establish
more of a running game after being
held to negative rushing yards
against Lake Wales.
Coach Speak
T.C. Cousins: "The gave Winter
Haven a pretty good game.The score
wasn't an indication.They're big,
they're strong, they're fast and
they're going to be tough.They're a
typical Polk County team.They've
got athletes"


Lake Placid

at

Moore Haven

Coach Speak
Shaw Maddox: "When you've got
26 people on the roster, and you
lose your feature back, it's going to
make things a little tougher. (Moore
Haven's) offensive and defensive
lines are not real strong, but they've
got a lot of good skill people. We'll
have to make sure we've got

S'Boys Golf


New coach, district not stopping


Blue Streaks from thinking big


By SCOT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING - It's not a bad
job to step into.
Between the boys and the
girls teams, the golf program at
Sebring High School has more
district and regional champi-
onships and more state finals
appearances than any other
Blue Streak sport, which is why
John Snyder had no qualms
about taking over the boys pro-
gram from retiring Wayne
Stapleford.
After all, inheriting a team
that has won five straight dis-
trict titles (the-girls, who are
now being coached by an unre-
tired Stapleford after Nancy
Price moved in the offseason,
have six in a row) is a dream
job for almost any coach..
"Knowing the kids, knowing


'It's kind of big
shoes to fill, but
so far I'm totally
impressed with
the golf program.'
SHS coach JOHN SNYDER

the program and being under
Wayne Stapleford's wing for a
year last year really gave me an
insight," Snyder said. "I've got
high shoes to hold up and so do
the kids, but we're ready for the
challenge."
With the loss of seniors Cody
Brownell, Matt Cornuet and
David McClean out of the top
three spots, the Streaks have
major holes to fill in the lineup,


but Snyder said this year's team
won't be pushovers, as proved
by their close second-place fin-
ish to a loaded Lakeland team
in an eight-team match-play-
event last week.
"Considering how young we
are, you could say it's a quasi
rebuilding year. The history
Wayne Stapleford has left, it's
kind of big shoes to fill, but so
far I'm totally impressed with
the golf program."
Seniors Zach Walkup and
Daniel Fisher, junior Roben
Griffin and sophomore Aaron
Snyder are all back from last
year's squad, and Snyder has
been impressed with the addi-
tions to the roster.
"We've got some newcomers
to the scene that have been
striking the ball real well. Cody

Does high school football warrant all the attention it gets?

Daniel Bedell says other sports deserve more, but his father, John, disagrees


Football, football, football. Can we
possibly hear any more about football?
Football is a great sport, no doubt,
but does it really
deserve all the
attention, cover-
age and money
that it gets?
No. Football
hogs all the head-
lines even when
the teams are

NEW SCHOOL sA lot of local
athletes that excel
Daniel Bedell in their sports
could use the
attention. Swimming, diving, golf,
cross-country and girls volleyball all
have equal or superior athletes that are


working very hard to put out a top-
notch athletic product, and the fact is
they aren't getting their due.
Let's start with swimming. Local
swimming has blossomed into one of
the best sports in the area, with Lake
Placid turning into a perennial power-
house, Sebring capturing a state cham-
pionship and Avon Park engineering a
great fundraising campaign to get its
own pool.
Swimming has turned out some of
the highest-achieving athletes locally,
and yet they still fail to draw much of
a crowd to anything they do.
Then there's diving. If you want a.
sport that requires great coordination
and amazing concentration, then div-
See NEW, Page 3E


Daniel, you have brought up some
good points, but I think you need to
take out the "Life isn't Fair" folder.
Open it up and put this one in there.
Sure, swimmers, golfers, cross
country runners and volleyball players
are working just as hard at their sports,
and they are not getting as much atten-
tion as they deserve. Yet does football
deserve less? No, and there is a reason
for that.
The other sports just cannot create
the same excitement as football.
Twenty-two guys on a gridiron just
roll over girls on a court, swimmers in
a pool, runners coming down the road
at Highlands Hammock and golfers at
the first tee.
Football is the most friendly specta-
tor sport in this group. All the action is


right in front of you.
You can watch the battle for the line
of scrimmage between the offensive
line and the
defensive line.
You can see a
quarterback fire a
spiral to the side-
line and have a
receiver turn an
8-yard gain into a
touchdown with a
quick fake.
You can watch OLD SCHOOL

included. And my reasons
don't even include the fact that
it is played by girls in spandex.
The local teams have provided
some of the most action-
packed, competitive athletics
that I have ever seen in the
county.
Volleyball was one of the
first high school sports I cov-
ered. At that time Sebring and
Avon Park had two very good
teams. Sebring, I remember,
was led by Dani Howard, who
was a strong girl and powerful
hitter who seemed to keep up a
relentless barrage of hits and
spikes against the other teams.
Teaming up with her was
Kristen Winberry, who was one
of best hustlers I have seen in
any local high school sport.
She seemed to be all over the
court all the time getting balls
that seemed unplayable.
Avon Park was led by
Anastasia Saunders. She was
tall and trim, and boy she
could jump! She coupled that
with a fiery passion to blast
powerful serves and spikes.
With her was Brenna Murphy,
who was also tall, and while

Girls volleyball is a lot of
fun to watch. I think it was
even more fun fdr you as you
realized the newspaper was
paying you to watch other girls
your age play a game. Yes, it is
a great country we live in.
Swimmers and divers are
impressive athletes. Sebring's
state championship relay team
was a great moment for local
sports. I think has been seven
or eight years since I went and
swam a workout with the Avon
Park swimmers. It was
exhausting, especially the but-
terfly. Few people know how
tough swimming can be.
I'm not a golfer, but I can
certainly get a feel for how dif-
ficult that sport must be. It takes
a lot of dedication to play well.
So I salute all the other,
sports, but I have to say football
is the big dog. It is the big dog
in community interest. It is the
big dog in generating revenue
for other sports. It is, like it or
not, the big dog in getting atten-

that all four girls were very
good looking. But, that aside,
they put on a show when the
two teams faced each other,
banging and smashing balls at
each other with a passion and
skill that was very impressive.
I can remember vividly
Howard creaming a spike off a
girl's face so hard that it
knocked her down and scored
the point. Both teams played
with ferocity that made you
want the games to just keep
going. Every point was fought
tooth-and-nail, and when it
was all over you knew they
had left everything on the
floor.
There was no loafing, no
laziness and just pure, hard
sport on display.
That all-out attitude can be
seen in all the sports men-
tioned. Football is great, but
the other sports are producing
their own greatness.
And here is the cold hard
fact: they are producing just as
many winners, if not more,
than football.

OUTDOORS

Lloyd Jones


I watched the final day
weigh-in of the 2005 Citgo
BassMaster Classic that was
held in the three river area of
Pittsburgh, Penn. This Classic
was interesting because the pro
anglers were catching small-
mouth bass that are the pre-
dominate bass in the area.
Kevin VanDam won first
place with a three-day catch
weighing 12 pounds, 15
ounces.That sure isn't much of
a stringer and it was the small-
est total three day catch in the'
history of the Classic.
I suppose we must remem-
ber that smallmouth bass do
not grow as big as largemouth
bass. Still, that is a mighty dis-
mal showing for a group of
top-notch professional bass
anglers when the winner can
only average a little more than
a 4-pound catch daily.
VanDam took home
$200,000 for his first place fin-
ish. Former winners said that a
first place finish could earn the
winner a million dollars or
more from sponsors over the
course of one year. It does
sound a little awesome to pick
up a million dollars for three
days of fishing. I wouldn't
mind participating in some-
thing so lucrative.
Two fellows from Florida
made the Classic this year.
Preston Clark and Terry
Scroggins, both from Palatka,
won more than $10,000 each.
Terry finished 13th and Preston
was 15th. Glad we had a cou-
ple of Floridians finish in the
money.
I don't know what kind of
baits either Terry or Preston
were using in the Classic, but

for the JV team, but qualified for the varsity and

in the match play and so far he's been striking the

The Streaks will-also have junior Brad Ellis,


they look as though they may
have come from outer space.
Why would a bass want to
down something so repulsive
looking?
Davy Hite, a pro fisherman,
once won the BassMaster
Classic using one of the freak-
ish plastic baits. You can get
these weird baits in sizes from
four to seven inches and since
these baits are bulky use a
wide gap hook for the larger
ones.
A three-eights ounce bullet
sinker will do in most
instances but if fishing deep,
you may need to go to a half-
ounce sinker. In weeds or other
heavy cover, you'd better use
20-pound line and peg that
sinker. You can go lighter with
a Carolina rig and use smaller
baits.
As you read this, I will be
trying some of these freaky
things as I visit with a brother-
in-law in Kentucky. He tells
me the bass fishing is good
right now. He lives near
Paintsville Lake in the eastern
part of the state. This jewel of
a lake winds 15 miles between
beautiful green mountains.
With little regard for nature,
coal companies are destroying
the mountains of Kentucky,
West Virginia and Tennessee
by ripping off their tops and
dumping the refuse into the
valleys, burying streams and
destroying wildlife. They are
getting so close to my brother-
in-law's farm that this may be
our last chance to enjoy that
area together.

Snyder said.
Even with the experienced and new talent, the
Streaks will have a tougher time adding another
district title to the trophy case with the move to
Class 2A and a district with Aubumdale, Bart6w,
Celebration, George Jenkins, Kathleen, Lake
Gibson, Lake Region, Lakeland, Poinciana and

"Those are all schools that are powerhouses in
golf," Snyder said. "We've got to step up our

Cox News Service
**** Score: 4 out of 5
Following up on the superlative smash of
2002, "Dungeon Siege II" takes the frantic
pacing of its action/RPG predecessor and
kicks it up a notch. It's a similar fantasy
bash-and-smash game, but instead of start-
ing out as a lowly farm girl with a shovel,
you begin as a low-rent mercenary thrown
into a battle that isn't yours and probably
isn't even just.
Following that, you're just a confused soul
set off on a series of missions and elective
quests to destroy this, find that, rescue her,
kill them, then come back for more, pick up
some playable/manageable sidekicks, make
it a party, go again.
The game's propensity for manic micro-
management-on-the-fly remains; expanded,
in fact, but with a streamlined interface, bet-
ter hotkey options, more obvious mix-match
tools and, best of all, magical teleporters and
universal Summoners to resurrect you, your
party and your entire inventory when you
die (and you will). This gets you back to
avenge yourself, tout de suite, allowing you

to play at full throttle mostly in real time -
though there are also many moments of stat-

"Madden NFL '06"
EA Sports; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone
t****i Score: 4.5 out of 5
Of all the "new and improved" Madden
NFL games to come down the pike over the
past 16 years, "Madden NFL '06" seems to
be the first one to feature a truly improved
passing game.
Where previous iterations always let
defensive adepts rule the roost, " '06" busts
through the thuggery with an advance-
ment of the hot-routes system, where you
can actually envision and select a receiver,
pre-snap. Moreover, you can now lead each
pass, throwing well ahead of, or lobbing


mentations, millions of spells and a seeming-
ly infinite number of potions and other
assorted booty, all accessed and sorted as the
action rampages on.
If you're not a fan of this celebrated genre-
hybrid made famous by "Diablo," "Nox" and
such, "Dungeon Siege II" can come off as
tedious, but it's escalating tedium, where the
next pilfered Cruel Dryad Sword just might
be the one that defeats that aggravating

tedium could be so addictive?


over, your intended receiver, making him
work for the completion but keeping clear
of the D on his tail. It's more like the real
deal than ever before.
EA has also gone to great lengths in gim-
mickry with a create-a-player mode that
has you selecting your future hall-of-
famer's gene pool - his parents - as well
as a good three hours of shopping for an
agent, taking IQ tests and a bunch of other
role-playing eleinents - with perplexing,
random results, regardless.
For those ardent Madden-ites who can
play numerous virtual seasons (all billion
of them), there's a lot of nitty gritty to
keep them happy For everyone else, there's
just excellent football.
