METHAMPHETAfu


Promotes faith to beat addl
SThiis s the fourth in a series of stories about metham-
phetamines.
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
Methamphetamine users will eventually stop.
They may get jailed. They may die. They may
take years to recover.
All people have their own road, said Elizabeth "Libbee"
Combee who runs the Mothers Against Methamphetamine
recovery program in Polk County. Those she knows who
have stayed off the drug have a relationship with God.
Mothers Against Methamphetamine, or MAMa, was
founded in 2002 by Dr. Mary Holley of Albertville, Ala.,
in the belief that the power of Jesus Christ can deliver peo-
ple from addiction and both heal and restore their lives,
families and communities.
Every week, Combee ministers to juveniles and adults
dealing with methamphetamine in one way or another. A
large part of her ministry is jail inmates.
"The system, as a whole, is not set up for rehabilita-
tion," Combee said. "Jail won't fix the medical problem."
Addicts must behave in jail, but they are still addicted
and suffering withdrawal. A typical human brain takes 12-
18 months to begin to heal. Combee said those who use or
have used methamphetamine, sometimes called "The
Devil's Drug," will never be whole again
"It still affects me," she said.
A former addict, Combee took the drug for 10 years
before getting off it.
Users may think they have control, but they don't, she
said. They don't know what's in the drug. They don't
understand why everyone is so upset with them.
Methamphetamine contains lye, sulfuric acid, muriatic
acid, drain cleaner, turpentine, rubbing alcohol and metal
from nickel-cadmium batteries, among other toxic ingredi-
ents.
Combee didn't even know what was in it until after
working with the ministry.


action Lm
"The only wayI came off it was with God," Combee
said. "I knew it was going to take something a whole lot
bigger than me."
After 2000, when her younger brother, Jim, died after a o
two-year addiction, Holley invested $400,000 of her own
money to research how methamphetamine affects the
brain. She wrote "Power Over Addiction," a book that
explains her findings, and developed the recovery pro-
gram.
She used community and youth education seminars to
present the problem to the community. Then family prayer
and recovery prayer groups gave addicts and their families
confidential emotional and spiritual support. Volunteers
can sponsor an addict, mentor a child of an addict, act
as a childcare worker for group meetings, facilitate
support groups or be a voice in the community.
The 'Tower Over Addiction" recovery program
for jails, prisons, and rehabilitation facilities - the
one Combee provides - lasts eight weeks.
Afterward, Mothers Against Methamphetamine will
provide follow-up sessions, introducing members
to support groups and a recovery Bible.
"You can lead them to the Lord, but it's a
heart thing," Combee said. "I believe life
never changes until they change their .. ..
hearts. You have to give your heart
over to God." .

VOLUME 86/NUMBER 35


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Guy Maxcy (left) listens to Dr. D.M. Upadhyaya discuss fund-raising ideas for the Stay Well Clinic
Tuesday afternoon in Sebring. The Stay Well Clinic provides medical care for low income individuals
who don't qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. 'We need to talk to hospitals and get them on board,'
Maxcy said. Board members suggested other ideas such as private or corporate donations.
Upadhyaya was named this year's Florida Medical Association Humanitarian for his work with the
clinic and will receive an award Friday in Tallahassee. To learn more, contact Rebekah Blalock at
382-1144 or call the Stay Well Clinic at 382-1234.


Upadhyaya shares humanitarian


award with Stay'Well Clinic staff


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun
SEBRING - In keeping
with his character and leader-
ship qualities, Sebring gyne-
cologist and obstetrician Dr.
D.M. Upadhyaya immediately
gathered his Stay Well Clinic
team for a photograph during
the noon-hour break Tuesday.
Upadhyaya will go to
Tallahassee Friday to receive
the Florida Medical
Association Humanitarian
Award for his work with the
Stay Well Clinic in Highlands
County.
As the photographer
snapped shots from several


angles, Upadhyaya explained
again why his colleagues in
health care and the support
staff make the clinic possible.
Upadhyaya helped open the
clinic in 1992, that continues
to serve non-insured patients
who needed medical services.
The News-Sun ran a series of
stories about the clinic to help
Upadhyaya explain to the
community the purpose of the
clinic. "We need to let the
folks know we're here," he
said.
SAnd the clinic also needed
voluntary help from the med-
ical community.
Tuesday, Upadhyaya


beamed with pleasure as his
friends gathered to receive the
honor he is sharing and his
congratulations.
The Stay Well concept took
the lead, here, in community
health care at a time when the
idea was just beginning to cre-
ate similar community health
care centers across the nation.
Looking into the future,
Upadhyaya said, "I'm hoping
people will come to know that
they can use this facility and
what we are offering."
Stay Well still stands
against a stigma its staff have
countered through the years.

Gas shortage


fears unfounded


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - The fear of gas
shortages after Hurricane
Katrina has prompted many
people to rush out and get as
much fuel as they can.
This panic is considered by
industry officials as premature.
Jim Smith, president of the
Florida Petroleum Marketers
arid Convenience Store
Association, believes this trepi-
dation is due to fear and specu-
lation.
"The fear is that Katrina
caused a lot of damage to
coastal refineries," Smith said.
"The speculation is that this
will cause a large fuel short-
age."
According to Smith, the rush
to the pumps is unnecessary
because Florida is in no danger
of running out of gas.
"Everyday in Florida 5 per-
cent of gas stations run out of
gas," Smith said. "The damage
caused by Katrina may bring
that to about 10 percent, but just
for the next week. We are not
going to run out of gas."
Regularly scheduled deliver-
ies have already been made to
Tampa Bay, and more will be
arriving throughout the week.
S"We have nine ships from
Texas and two from the
Caribbean," Smith said. "We
will also have more arriving as
soon as the barges that normal-
ly travel the Mississippi River
are cleared to head down."
While Florida is in no danger
of running out of fuel, there will
be an increase in the already
high prices.
"The price per refined gallon
has gone 'up about 50 cents,"
Smith said. "Consumers aren't


seeing it yet, but they will over
the next week."
Smith attributes this price
increase to the oil companies
that distribute fuel to local
providers.
"I hadi hoped they could go a
little while without focusing
solely on profit," Smith said.
"Unfortunately, that is not the
case."
Labor Day typically signals
the end of the summer driving
season, and is normally accom-
panied by a drop in gas prices.
Smith asserts that it will be
the same this year.
"Once the panic subsides,
prices will begin to drop again,"
Smith said. "Maybe not as
much as in years past, but
prices should start coming
down again after the holiday."
The potential damage to oil
platforms, refineries and
pipelines that remain closed
along the Gulf Coast drove
energy prices to new highs
Tuesday, with crude futures
briefly topping $70 a barrel and
wholesale gasoline costs surg-
ing to levels that could lead to
$3 a gallon at the pump in some
markets.
Onshore, flooding from
Hurricane Katrina is likely to
have caused enough damage to
some refineries that it could
take weeks, and possibly a
month or more, before opera-
tions return to normal, analysts
said.
Indeed, the production and
distribution of oil and gas
remained severely disrupted by
the shutdown of a key oil
import terminal off the coast of
Louisiana and by the Gulf
region's widespread loss of

Velazquez linked to Movie Gallery, bomb incidents


Confessed to

police on bank

robbery attempts
By PHIL ATT1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Detectives
have linked last week's
Comcast robbery suspect with
this month's two bank-bombing
hoaxes and another robbery.
According to Sebring Police
Cmdr. Steve Carr, Hector
Velazquez Jr., 46, confessed to
the Aug. 18 robbery of the
Movie Gallery at 2940 U.S. 27
South in Sebring, as well as two


attempted bank robberies -
one later that day and another
the next day, Aug. 19.
Detectives from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office and Sebring Police
Department interviewed
Velazquez at the Highlands
County Jail over the weekend.
According to arrest reports, he
immediately admitted to rob-
bing Comcast Cable.
In the Movie Gallery rob-
bery, the robber forced two
clerks into a back room, then
stole $50 from the cash register.
In both bank cases -
SunTrust Bank, at 126 W.


Center Ave.,
and Wachovia
Bank at
DeSoto Square
- the robber
attempted to
use packages
that looked like
VELAZQUEZ bombs to
frighten drive-through window
tellers into handing over cash,
but wasn't successful.
Detective Joseph Price said
sheriff's office crime scene ana-
lysts, while searching
Velazquez's white Ford Escort,
found a knife similar to the one
used in both the Comcast and
Movie Gallery incidents. They


also found a large sum of
money and other items.
According to arrest reports,
Velazquez entered Comcast, at
3010 Herring Ave., north of
Sebring, with a knife at 3:40
p.m. on Aug. 26. He displayed
it to the two clerks at the front
counter and told them to give
him the money from the regis-
ter. Allegedly, he tried to grab
one of them to help him open
the register.
They retreated from him for
fear of being stabbed with the
knife.
The reports continue that he
jumped onto the counter to


open the drawer himself and
took a quantity of money, later
determined to be $900.
After that, he ran out of the
door, jumped in his car and left,
pulling onto Memorial Drive in
front of Sheriff's Capt. Mark.
Schrader's patrol car. Schrader
chased him to the intersection
of'State Road 17 and Home
Avenue.
According to arrest reports,
Velazquez got out of the car
with his hands raised and said,
"You got me. I did it."
Deputies have charged him
with fleeing and armed robbery,
attempting to elude a police


officer, grand theft, and two
counts of aggravated assault.
No bond has been set.

In the three Sebring cases,
charges have not yet been filed,
Carr said.



CORRECTION
The law enforcement officer
pictured in the photograph
Friday was misidentified. It
was actually Sebring Police
Detective Sgt. Curtis Hart pic-
tured with Hector Velazquez
Jr., the armed robbery suspect.


Sunday car crash




claims two lives


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Bad weather
appears to have contributed to
an automobile accident that
claimed two lives Sunday after-
noon.
It was the 19th fatal car crash
to have occurred in Highlands
County this year, and brings the
death total to 21.
At approximately 2 p.m.
Jennifer Naile, 27, from
Palmdale, was driving east on
State Road 66 near Winding
Creek Road, with two children
in the car. Both children were
wearing seat belts, but Naile
was not.
Naile's 2003 Ford Focus
began to hydro-plane on the wet
road.


According to Florida State
Trooper Cpl. A. H.. Middleton's
report, Naile applied her brakes
aggressively, causing her car to
rotate in a counter-clockwise
direction.
Dorothy Allen, 70, of
Sebring, driving a 1999 Buick
Park Avenue, was in the west
bound lane of State Road 66.
Doris Lovelette, 90, of Sebring,
was riding as a passenger in the
front seat; both women were
wearing seat belts.
Allen's car crashed into the
Ford .Focus as it spun into the
westbound lane with its passen-
ger side exposed to traffic. The
impact had such force, it
sheered the smaller car in two.
Both sections of the Ford
came to rest on the north side of


State Road 66, although a dis-
tance apart.
Allen's vehicle also came to
a stop on thenorth side of the
highway, with its front end fac-
ing north. Allen did not survive
the crash.
Lovelette, the passenger in
the Buick, received only minor
injuries.
One child in the Ford, Cierra
K. Naile, 6, was ejected from
the rear section of the car after
it was cut in two. She died at the
scene.
The other child, Austin L.
Naile, also 6, who was riding in
the front seat, and Naile, the
driver of the Ford were treated
and released from Highlands
Regional Hospital.


Who will be the next Heartland Idol?


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
- SG --Do ou anwl,a~ be a star?
How about an idol?
On Thursday the opening rivdid-- of.
Heartla~d'Idol will take place on the'Circle iifi
downtown Sebring. The Sebring Downtown
Merchants and Professionals Association
sponsors the competition, which is modeled
after Fox's American Idol.
This year's Heartland Idol competition is
open to residents of Highlands, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Okeechobee, and Polk coun-
ties.
Diana Hirshl, a member of the association,
encourages people to come out and enjoy the
event.
"It becomes quite a show," Hirsh said.
"There will be a concession stand serving hot
dogs, snow cones and drinks. It is a really
good time for everyone."
The qualifying rounds will take place at 6
p.m. on Sept.,l, Sept. 22, Oct. 6 and Oct. 20.
The qualifying competitions consist of a 90-
second a capella performances.
The lack of musical accompaniment is inte-
gral to the judging.
"I think performing without music helps the
judges get a better feel for the contestants'
voices," Hirsh said.
Contestants who are not selected during
their first performance are encouraged to con-
tinue trying.
"The application fee is $10 for the first
round and only $5 for those who want to try
again in the next round," Hirsh said. "If you
don't make it the first time you should really


try again. The people you compete against
will change with each round."
Contestants must be 18 or have been born
on or before Nov. 12, 1987, to compete in this
year' -~o~ifitition. The Heartland Idol age,.
constrictions differ from its national counter-
part because while there is a minimum age,
there is no maximum age for contestants.
"Last year we had a contestant in her 60s,"
Hirsh said. "It is an opportunity for everyone."
During the qualifying rounds five competi-
tors will be chosen from each of the four qual-
ifying rounds to compete in the semifinals
held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3.
At the semifinals, 10 will be selected to
compete in the final competition.
This year's final of Heartland Idol will be
held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, during the
culmination of the "12 Hours of Art &
Community" festival. '
The winner of the competition will receive
a $2,000 prize and recognition as 2005's
Heartland Idol winner.
"Don't be scared to come out and give it
your best," Hirsh said. "Until the competition
we didn't know there were so many talented
people right here."
Last year's winner, Nelly .Guzman, is cur-
rently pursuing her musical aspirations in
New York.
Guzman's willingness to pursue her dream
serves as inspiration to those who compete
this year.
"I thank you for all of your prayers and best
wishes," Guzman said. "Living my dream
may take a while, but I am not giving up."

I Roll On


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Austin Bryant (from left), of Heart of Florida Greenhouses in Zolfo Springs, discusses environmental
issues with Florida Representative Denise Grimsley and Jim Spratt, director of Environmental Policy for
the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association at a grass roots meeting Tuesday. The forum at
Inn on the Lakes in Sebring allowed local growers to voice concerns about harmful regulation at a time
when the industry is taking off along with development.


.Growers, nurseries face hits


while development increases


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Florida's nurs-
ery and grower industry has
boomed with the real estate
market.
Three years ago, an econom-
ic study showed growers, nurs-
eries and landscapers had a $9.9
billion impact on Florida,
according to Jim Spratt, direc-
tor of Environmental Policy for
the Florida Nursery, Growers
and Landscape Association
state office.
With that impact, members
of the association's Highlands
Heartland chapter asked Florida
Representatives Denise
Grimsley (District 77) and
Baxter Troutman (District 17)
on Tuesday to help the Florida
Legislature understand this.
Grimsley and Troutman said
they'll fight with Florida agri-
culture. The expected 30 mil-
lion population by 2025 will put
that much more pressure on
resources, Troutman said.
Already, the state's regulato-
ry posture has been "less than
friendly," Spratt said.
Education will help. A lot of
people think agricultural opera-
tions are "land banking:"
Sitting on property to sell when
land values go up.
Most are. trying to make a
profit with their land now,


Spratt said. Last year's hurri-
canes took a $400-$600 million
bite out of the industry with lost'
plants and six to eight weeks of
no orders or business. Growers
bounced back.
Hurricane Katrina took
another big bite in Miami-Dade
County, he said: Up to $300
million.
Some assistance has come
from a bill for an agricultural
exemption on farm equipment.
The association wants another
one for farm diesel fuel. They
also want to help set best man-
agement practices and more
funding for studies by the
University of Florida Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
Workers'
Compensation
Ted Brown of Evergreen.
Nursery said workers' compen-
sation has gotten too expensive.
Troutman blames a lack of tort
reform, the low number of
providers for workers' compen-
sation, and the ability for peo-
ple to sue for any reason.
Grimsley said society as a
whole needs to take more
responsibility for their actions.
One suggestion she received
was to pick juries from voting
registration, not driver's licens-


es, to get people who take more
interest and are more involved
in their community.
Landowner Rights
Collier and Lee counties
have created local ordinance
conserve land for listed species,
outlining areas to be or not to be
developed. It also is meant to
ensure that some areas can be
affordable housing, but
Troutman said that may
infringe on property rights.
The state is following this
example. Troutman would pre-
fer to see less state, and more
local control.
Transportation
Traffic lights from U.S. 27
from Lake Placid- north to
Leesburg are rough on semi-
trailers carrying good to market
or processors. While hurricane
evacuees on U.S. 27 underscore
the problem, Troutman said it
can take 10 years to get money
for roads.
John Haviland of South
Ridge Agricultural Tree Farm
said Senate Bill 360 will require
infrastructure to be in place
within three years of new devel-
opment. Without the political
and economic clout, he said,
Highlands County can't guaran-
tee that, so it can't plan for new
development.

was set at $1,000.
They stopped him at 11:57
p.m. Monday, Aug. 22, at the
intersection of State Road 64
and Irvington Road. As he got
out, he told them about the
gun, and that it was not hol-
stered.


Brown faces an

assault charge

on an officer
LAKE PLACID - When a
deputy tried to keep a
motorist from leaving a scene,
she rammed him.
Taubreenia Ane Brown, 18,
of Lake Placid, is now facing
a charge of aggravated assault
on a law enforcement officer,
with no bond set.
The Highlands County
sheriff's deputy tried to get
Brown to stop at 3:43 a.m.
Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 1385
State Road 70 East, Lake
Placid. She was heading north
toward the-highway and the
deputy's car was blocking the
drive with emergency lights
and headlights on.
She didn't stop, arrest
reports said, so the deputy
tired to evade her. Allegedly,
she hit both the right front


and right rear bumper of the
patrol car, causing $1,000 in
damage.

Davidson

charged with

Xanax

possession
AVON PARK - Police
stopped a Toyota pickup on
Tuesday, Aug. 23, at Main
Street and Marshall Avenue,
for having no tag lights, and
found two illegal prescription
pills.
Allegedly, driver Thomas
Alexander Davidson, 20, ,of
Avon Park, refused to let
them search his truck. A K-9
unit alerted to drugs. Avon
Park police found a round
plastic container shoved
between the back and seat of
the front bench seat.
It contained cannabis and
rolling papers, reports said.

went to Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. Boulevard Avenue and

cotics at 1 a.m. Monday, Aug.
22. While there,, she met
Mathis, an acquaintance.

Lincoln Street, where he asked
if she wanted a hit of crack. She
said no, but according to
reports, he grabbed her by the
arm, pulled her into the vacant
house and ordered her to smoke

the drug.
After that, he allegedly
forced her to perform sexual
acts as payment. Several times
she asked him to stop, but he
refused, reports said.
During this, she managed to
dial 911 on her cellular phone,
but could not answer the opera-
tor for fear of her safety. The
911 records confirmed a call at
that time with a woman's voice
asking someone to stop what
they were doing.
After this, he allegedly took
her out of the house and back to
the intersection, holding her by
the wrist, not letting her go.
Every time she tried to leave, he
would grab tighter, arrest
reports said.
Allegedly, he took her back
to the vacant house, and forced
sex on her again. After that,
they left, and she got away by
telling him she had to go home
to her kids.
She went to the Amtrak sta-
tion to collect herself, then went
to the Texaco on Kenilworth
Boulevard to call police.


When police contacted
Mathis, he said he had sex with
two women at that time. He
said he'd seen the victim, but
did not have sex with her.
He also denied being at the
Lincoln Street home, but when
confronted with the possibility
of genetic evidence, he admit-
ted to having sex with her there,
but said it was consensual.
While talking with him, the
officer saw him trying to put
something into a hole in his
shoe. When the officer asked
for Mathis' shoe and searched
it, he allegedly found a crack
pipe.

Teen charged in weapons theft case


By PHIL ATrINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A teen from
Zolfo Springs was charged on
Aug. 23, 2005, with burglariz-
ing a local house and taking
firearms.
Michael Dean Patton Jr., 16,
has been charged with burglary
while armed and grand theft of
a firearm. No bond was set.
His cohorts, Christobal
Lopez IV and Daniel Patton,
were caught on the day of the
burglary.
On Aug. 8, Lopez and the
two Pattons met at Circle K on
State Road 17 in Zolfo Springs.
They rode to Sebring in a white
Dodge Caravan. Lopez drove.
They took State Road 66 to
County Road. 635 and then to
the home of Bruce Frye on
Selah Road where Michael
Patton had lived previously.


Arrest reports said they
entered through the unlocked
front door, took 29 firearms,
three knives, several clothes, a
Sony AM/FM compact disk
player with speakers, and
$26.60 in cash.
Autumn Martin, 30, had been
watching the house and arrived
home to find them there. She
blocked the drive with her car.
She then got out of her car to
talk with Michael Patton,
yelling for them to stop.
However, Michael Patton
yelled at the driver of the van to
get moving.
They reversed and the side
mirror hit Martin on the arm.
The van maneuvered around the
car and got out. They headed
north to Hammock Road, then
west through Highlands
Hammock State Park.
Martin got into her car and

past the ranger check station
and headed through on County
Road 634.
Rangers radioed ahead to
two Department of
Environmental Protection
Officers, who were checking
car speeds on the shell portion
of the road. The van passed
them, and they gave chase.
"About a quarter to a half-mile
down the road, Lopez lost con-
trol and slid into a tree. The
Pattons got out and ran through
the swampy woods. The offi-
cers caught Lopez. He was
standing beside the driver's
door.
Hardee County sheriff's
deputies caught Daniel Patton
in the park. They later caught
Patton using a K-9 unit.

Ruhl home was

Sebring's first

teacherage
By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Sebring White
Way editor Peter Ruhl and his
wife began building their home
on lot 15 of Block 41 soon after
it was surveyed and platted by
the Sebring Real Estate
Company in 1913. The lot in
the area of Pine Street and
Center in downtown Sebring
soon became Ruhl's little ranch.
By 1918 Ruhl was raising
150 cattle, 50 horses and mules
on the lot area. The First
Methodist Church, erected
across the street in 1916.
attracted residential and corn
mercial growth in the area.
According to Kim Hinder's the-
sis on Highlands County
teacherages, that may have
influenced Ruhl's decision to
sell the property to a Mary M.
Watts of Ontario in 1924.
However, the city tax books
in the Sebring Historical
Society do not show a Mary M.
Watts as having ever owned the
property. It indicates that Peter
Ruhl sold lot 15 directly to the
Highlands County School
Board in 1924. Hinder reports
that a year later, in December
1925, Watts conveyed it to the

school board.
Hinder states further that the
school board decided in April
1925 to enlarge the 1916
school. It hired architect F.H.
Trimble to design the new addi-
tion and F.P. Heifner to build it
for $ 95,554. In August, Heifner
was again hired for $2,700 to
renovate the Ruhl House, which
was to be used as the Sebrihg
Teacherage.
A serious housing problem
developed as the result of popu-
lation growth, refugees from
two hurricanes and the need for
more teachers. By August 1926
bids were accepted for the con-
struction of the Sebring School
Annex.
This included the new
teacherage, Douglas Hall,

Depp: A WAC with many talents


'By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - When Lillian
Depp received her discharge
from the Women's Army Corp
in October 1946, it was too late
to get a teaching position in
Pennsylvania; she decided to
spend the winter in Florida.
Depp admitted that she never
wanted to be a teacher so she
took commercial courses in
high school. She was consider-
ing an office job in South
America, but her grandmother
(whom she loved dearly)
arranged a teaching position for
her in rural Pennsylvania.
She confided that one of the
reasons she joined the Women's
Air Corp was to get,4 way frog
teaching. However, since grad-
uating from
Punxsutawney High --
School, Depp taught
44 years in rural
schools, the Army
and special education
in Highlands County.
During her winter
vacation in Florida, ' "
Depp worked at the
City Drug Store '-
where she met
Maude Yawn, general
supervisor of instruc-
tion. Yawn urged her to apply
for a teaching position, which
resulted in a 10-month contract
to teach second grade in
DeSoto City.
Yawn observed her success
with problem students there and
asked her to teach a class of
exceptional children in Sebring
the next year. The classroom
was the former Ruhl residence;
the rooms were old, poorly
lighted and furnished with
some of "this and that." This
was the beginning of the
Exceptional Child Program in
Sebring in 1948.
The children were a "mixture
of exceptionalities," which pre-
sented quite a challenge for
teaching. Individual lessons
were prepared for each child
and various craft projects

offered opportunities for read-
ing and arithmetic training.
Depp spent most of her sum-
mers at Florida State University
learning more about the special
children she was trying to
teach.
Eventually certification as
specialist in school psychology
was obtained, which led to her
appointment as school psychol-
ogist for Highlands County. Her
primary responsibility was to
determine eligibility for place-
ment in the Exceptional Child
Program.
Testing space was at a premi-
um and she used whatever was
available. She tested in the prin-
cipal's office, the janitor's room
gnd even'tied a Chevy vai as
an office.' She coi-
tinued in the 'dsi'-
tion for seven years
and retired in 1973.
Meanwhile in
1952 Depp along
S with Ava
Leatherman and
Ava's cousin, Ruth
Whipp, purchased
Children's Flower
Shop on North
P_ Ridgewood Drive.
The venture was so
successful that in 1953 they
purchased Collier's Flower
Shop on South Ridgewood
Drive. They combined the two
shops and named the new one
Hobby Hill Florists. (Depp had
met Leatherman while in the
military service.)
The trio soon decided to pur-
chase land and grow their own
flowers; then it became a chore
driving back and forth while
living in the downtown area.
Leatherman sold her home on
Eucalyptus and built a home on
the acreage. They moved into
the new home in October 1953.
Hobby Hill Florists was sold in
1973 and the owners retired.
Lenard and Shelly Carlisle pur-
chased the Leatherman proper-
ty on West Beach Road for their
family.

Even after portions of the Ruli

married or moved on. Douglas
Hall was converted into class-
rooms and the Ruhl house was
used for exceptional children's
classes. Lillian Depp agreed to
manage this new program in
1948.
By 1960 the school board
decided to expand with a sci-
ence wing on the aforemen-
tioned lots. Douglas Halal was
moved to its present location:
the Ruhl House was divided
into two parts and sold to Ben
Eastman, He moved them to his
property on Airport Road
(Kenilworth Boulevard exten-

served as residences and are
still in use.

Because of the development

must be a market to recover that

tain pesticide may appear to
have excellent efficacy: howev
er, if it can't be applied because
of certain restrictions, such as
rotational or post-harvest inter-
vals, then its market is further
limited.
For these reasons, the pesti-
cide that reaches the market-
place must demonstrate the fol-

and will it fit into a pest manag-
er's practices? Ideally, it should
be readily adaptable to the cur-
rent methods employed by the
user.
Many environmental effects
must be considered as well.
Protection of water surfaces is a
major concern; therefore, the
pesticide should not have prop-
erties that make it leach into
groundwater sources. Persist-
ence is another environmental
concern that has determined the
fate of many pesticides. Some
of the older insecticides have
lost their registrations because
of their persistence in the envi-
ronment. Ideally, the pesticide
will stay around for just enough
time to do its job: then, break
down into harmless metabo-
lites.
,For similar reasons, residues
are closely studied. Food, feed
and fiber are evaluated very
carefully on a daily basis' for
their safe use and consumption.

It must be slown that the
pesticide does not pose unrea-

Alter all of this process, it
has been estimated that only
about one out of every 35,000
chemiicals actually make it. For
all of the previously mentioned
factors, the odds are extremely
unfavorable. But, that's not
necessarily a negative.
It's vital that today's pesti-
cides are thoroughly tested and
shown to be user and environ-
menially friendly.
The EPA requires that each
pesticide have its' own unique
label. Here are about 450
active ingredients formulated
into about 25.000 products ...
each will have its own label.
The user of the product needs to
have the label that is actually
attached to the packaging.
Labels printed off of Web sites
or copied from various, trade
books are not official labels.
Also, labels are written very
specifically for the product's
particular use. If a certain use is
not listed on its label, then it is
not legal to use the product in
that manner.
Remember the label is a legal
document, read it and follow
the label directions.

Robbery defendants ready for trial


News-Sun
SEBRING - Four defen-
dants and three defense attor-
neys in the Jan. 7 bank robbery
case are ready for trial.
Stepfone Vadle Buckle Jr.,
16; Samuel Etheredge, 16;
Ednol Antonio Hanna III, 17;
and Robert Lee Vann, 17, will


go to trial on Sept. 12. Each one
is charged as a principle in
armed.robbery with a firearm
and with burglary of a con-
veyance, grand theft of a motor
vehicle, and resisting officers
without violence.
Attorney William David
McNeal of Winter Haven want-


ed more time to prepare for
trial, but his client, Buckle, told
Circuit Judge Olin Shinholser
he was ready.
The defendants have one'
more status conference on Sept.
8 before the trial takes place.
At 1 p.m. Jan. 7, three people
entered the SouthTrust Bank at


825 W. Main St., Avon Park,
and four people drove away
with sacks of cash. Witnesses
saw the robbers switch cars at a
nearby apartment complex,
then flee south.
Sebring police saw the car
run a red light at U.S. 27 and
U.S. 98 and pursued. Florida


Highway Patrol clocked the car
at 104 mph and joined >the
chase.
Highlands- County sheriff's
deputies also followed after try-
ing to stop the car with stop
sticks on U.S. 27 just north of
Lake Placid. The car did finally
stop on four flat tires at


Highway Park, just south of
town.
They fled on foot, but
deputies captured Buckle,
Hanna, and Vann. Etheredge
ran into a nearby house and
refused to come out. Deputies
captured him after deploying
tear gas.

Local residents, employees


work relief for Katrina's victims


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - The devasta-
tion wrought by Hurricane
Katrina has left many in
Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama without basic necessi-
ties, and local power companies
are'helping out.
Progress Energy Florida
plans to send at least 400
erplo\ees and contractors
t'ass~it-the Leuisiana-based
utiWHy company Cleco
Power in their efforts to
restore electric service to
those areas hit hardest.
Nearly 200 of those
employees and contractors
spent the past week assisting
Florida Power & Light in
their power restoration
efforts after Katrina hit
southern Florida.
Glades Electric Cooperative
is currently working with
Clarke-Washington Electric
Cooperative to assist in the
restoration of power in the
storm ravaged areas of
Alabama.
According to Susie Bishop,
business development coordi-

electricity, which is needed to
power pipelines and refineries.
"It's ugly," said Lawrence J.
Goldstein, president of the New
York-based nonprofit
Petroleum Industry Research
Foundation. "Power is a prob-
lem, but the water issue is unbe-
lievable."
To avert a severe supply


CLINIC
Continued from 1A
"Some people have been shy to
go there, but this is not welfare,
this is a respectable clinic we
run for people who have no
(medical) insurance, no
Medicare."
It is true, he said, "We don't-
charge them - no money -
ever."
The Stay Well team makes
this possible.
"This is a community proj-
ect," Upadhyaya said.
The clinic's medical director,
Dr. Bipin Bhatt, said, "We offer
care to all needy patients
regardless of their financial sit-
uation."
About the humanitarian
award, Bhatt said, "The award
means that we are being recog-
nized for the community serv-
ice that we provide."
Bhatt added that since open-
ing his practice in Highlands
County, he has been treated
very well and now "it is time to
give something back."


nator for Glades, this is the
"neighborly" thing to do.
"Clarke-Washington Co-op.
sent crews to assist Glades with
restoration efforts last year after
our area was heavily impacted
by three hurricanes in a row,"
Bishop said. "We now have the
ability to return the favor by
offering much needed assis-
tance to them."
Glades- sent an eight-man
cre\~alonTg witiVservice trucks,
lne-Truck'., bucket trucks and
pole trailers in order to make
restoration go as smoothly as
possible.
Tommy Todd, general man-
ager of Glades, is committed to
assisting neighbors in need.
."The length of time GEC
will have lineman assisting is
unknown at this time," Todd
said. "But we will make our
employees available to them as
long as it is deemed necessary."
Other businesses are helping
those in need by providing
ways for their customers to help
out.
Winn-Dixie Stores
announced that they will be
assisting in relief efforts by giv-


crunch, Goldstein said the gov-
ernment should relax summer
gasoline specifications to
immediately free-up motor fuel
supplies otherwise being- held
in storage until Sept. 15. He
said the United States should
also seek help from European
nations, who might be willing
to lend, exchange or sell gaso-
line and other fuels out of their
own inventories.
In wholesale markets on the
Gulf Coast, some gasoline was
being priced as high as $2.85 a
gallon and in the Midwest,
prices were as high as $2.65 a
gallon, according to Tom
Kloza, director of the Wall,
N.J.-based Oil Price
Information Service. Retail


ing customers throughout the
southeast the opportunity to
donate at the register. The
"Neighbors Helping
Neighbors" program has been
instituted to assist the American
Red Cross' Disaster Relief
Fund.
Customers simply tell their
cashier how much they would
like to donate, and the amount
is added to their bill.
The American Red Cross has
already begun the largest mobi-
lization of resources in its histo-
ry for a single natural disaster.
More than 200 Red Cross shel-
ters opened to house the thou-
sands of residents who fled
from Katrina's wrath.
The Red Cross is also using
.all of its available resources in
order to provide food, bottled
water and other much-needed
relief supplies.
Those who wish to assist in
the relief effort may also make
donations at local Red Cross
locations, through the Web site
at www.redcross.org, or by call-
ing 1-800-HELP NOW.


prices are typically 60 cents
higher, meaning motorists in
these regions could very well
$3 a gallon at the pump in some
markets.
Katrina, which struck the
Gulf Coast as a Category 4
storm, was blamed for more
than 100 deaths in Mississippi
alone and the evacuation of
more than 700 offshore plat-
forms and rigs. Officials predict
the death toll will be much
higher. It slammed into a major
oil production hub at a time
when producers worldwide
were already struggling to cope.

Associated Press reports were
used in this report.

AVON PARK - If diners
reserve now, they can enjoy
dinner and a murder next week-
end.
Moore Performing Arts Inc.
has combined forces with Jeni's
Restaurant in Avon Park to
present "Hometown
Homicide," a whodunit mystery
dinner theater show.
The restaurant approached
the performing company and
asked if it would help develop a
dinner theater production.
Larry Moore said it was odd,
the way it happened. He and
Rachel Moore teach drama
camps for youth during the
summer. One of the boys is the
son of the restaurant owners,
Malcolm and Jeni Trott. They
had heard about other restau-
rants that sponsored dinner the-
aters, and wanted to do one
here.
The Moores visited the
, restaurant and said yes.
Rachel Moore and Korene
Boyd wrote the script, then
worked with the kitchen and
serving staff to produce the
show. Servers will perform in
the show, including a major role
by server Ashley Elder, playing
a disgruntled waitress.
"The show involves our
chefs, cooks, two love triangles,
and one of the customers," Jeni
Trott said.
The play will go on during
the customers' soup, salad,

entree and dessert courses.
Diners will have to pay atten-
tion, Jeni Trott said, because
there are seven or eight differ-
ent suspects and murder
weapons. The audience will get
to choose who does it.
Depending on how the audi-
ence votes, that's how the
"murderer" will "kill" the vic-
tim.
Malcolm Trott said the
restaurant had great success
with "Hell's Kitchen" last
month, and has decided just to
roll that into something else.
"What do you do for an
encore after Hell's Kitchen?" he
asked.
They got an answer after they
saw an Al Capone show in
Orlando, and then heard about
Moore Performing Arts.
"The Moores wrote an origi-
nal script for us, for our place,"
he said.
Moore Drama
Larry Moore started Moore
Drama several months ago as a
performing arts company.. The


company does group and indi-
vidual drama training, image
consulting and etiquette work-
shops, which Rachel Moore
teaches. They can work for
businesses and organizations,
individuals to work on group
building, self-improvement or
outreach.
The group works with
Hopewell Academy for the Arts
in Avon Park and the Children's
Street for the Fine Arts Fair in
Sebring. Each year, they do a
holiday production at the
Restoration Center for the
Highlands.
This year's will be titled
"Yuletide Treasures." Last
year's show, "Mistletoe
Madness," is being made into a
book, Rachel Moore said.
The entertainment group also
gets hired out to liven up "real-
ly boring" conferences, Larry
Moore said, by taking corporate
information and making it fun
by working it into a skit.
"It's Saturday Night Live
gone bad," he said.


A potential mess


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Lorida volunteer firefighters and staff from Reliable Sanitation Inc. stand guard over an over-
turned garbage truck Monday on Bluff Hammock Road. According to Florida Highway Patrol,
the 1999 International truck tipped over on its right side at 10:57 a.m. Monday when the truck
ran off the road and driver Benjamin J. deBree, 30, of Sebring, overcorrected. He was cited with
careless driving. Neither he nor his passenger, 28-year-old Jose D. Lopez of Fort Myers, were seri-
ously injured. Both wore seat belts.

Couple features Cuban cuisine in cafe


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - If you like
Cuban cuisine, head to the new
Cuban Cafe, recently opened by
husband and wife Lionel and
Jennifer Viera.
"I came from Cuba in the
1980s on the Mariel boatlift. I
was 4 years old. My mother-in-
law, Wilma Esteves, is a great
cook. Her mother was Cuban
and she learned everything
from her. All our recipes are
authentic," Lionel Viera said.
Cuban Cafe was previously a
coffee shop and bookstore. The
Viera's have renovated the 800
square feet and it now has the
feel of a Key West conch house.
It has a cozy, intimate atmos-
phere, with seating for 15. The
clean, cheerful yellow and
white decor matches their wel-
coming family attitude while
serving breakfast, lunch and
dinner.
For breakfast you could order
two eggs with ham, bacon or
sausage with grits or hash
browns. There's guava, apple,
coconut, pineapple, and cheese
pastries for $1 each. Or wake up
with an espresso: A buche (sip)
is 35 cents, and a colado (Cuban
coffee in a bigger cup with four

smaller cups to share) for $1.25.
Another recommended treat
is the press, which has cheese,
or egg and cheese with ham or
bacon pressed on Cuban bread.
Prices for sandwiches range
from $3 to $4.50. There are ham
croquettes, media noches (mid-
night snacks), roast pork,
Cubans, and a Key West Cuban
Mix. Other choices are


empanathas, croquette or steak,
and of course popular chicken
breast, hamburger, bacon, let-
tuce and tomato sandwiches
and ham sandwiches.
Dinner ranges from $6.50 to
$8.50. There's picadillo, pork
steak, ropa vieja (shredded
beef,) palomilla (top sirloin
steak), liver or grilled chicken
breast.


Blanca Cordova (left) and Yolanda Russell (right) are served cuban sandwiches Monday afternoon by
Wilma Estevez at the Cuban Cafe in Avon Park.


Save room for dessert.
There's bread pudding with
guava, flan, and rice pudding.
The milkshakes are $2.75 and
come in a variety of flavors
such as mamey, guanabana,


mango, guava, and papaya.
"We do lots of take out from
work that people pick up on
their way home," Lionel Viera
said.
Cuban Cafe is at 1109 West


Peel St. (behind the Clock
restaurant off U.S. 27). Hours
are 7 a.m. to-8 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. It is closed
Sunday. Call 784-4065 to place
an order.

Dr. Norm Stephens (left), South Florida Community College presi-
dent, congratulates Bill Boyer, SFCC profession of auto mechanics,
for getting the National Institute for Staff and Organizational
Development Excellence Award.



Boyer recognized



for exceptional



teaching at SFCC


AVON PARK --Bill Boyer,
professor of auto mechanics at
South Florida Community
College, recently received the
National Institute for Staff and
Organizational Development
Excellence Award.
Each academic year, asks
community college. presidents
around the world to submit the
name of an individual who
should be recognized for excep-
tional teaching. NISOD pres-
ents the awards at its
International Conference on
Teaching and Leadership
Excellence in Austin, Texas.
Boyer is the first instructor at
SFCC to receive the award.
"It was an honor to be select-
ed," Boyer said. "NISOD is an
international organization that's
based out of the University of
Texas at Austin, one of the most
highly rated educational institu-
tions for people going into edu-
cation."
Boyer began teaching at
SFCC in 1972 as a part-time
auto mechanics instructor.
During this time, he owned and
operated Boyer's Garage on
Central Avenue in Avon Park.
In 1975, he helped to design the
Auto Collision facility at SFCC
and in August 1976, he became
a full-time instructor in SFCC's
Auto Collision program. Boyer
has also taught off campus
"Quick Start" programs for
SFCC at Wellcraft Marine,
Walker Motor Coach,
Lockwood Aviation and Hancor
Systems. Most recently, he
assisted SFCC in starting an


Auto Collision program at its
DeSoto campus in Arcadia.
He recently received the
2004 President's Award for
Outstanding Faculty and was
one of two instructors who stu-
dents named "Outstanding
Faculty for 2004-05." In 1999,
Boyer was the recipient of
SFCC's Faculty Incentive
Awards for facilitating partner-
ships between the college and
car dealerships and was named
"Outstanding Vocational
Educator for Post-Secondary
Education for 2002" by the
Avon Park Rotary Club.
"Although being a school
teacher was never part of my
plan while in school, striving to
do my best has always been a
goal," Boyer said. "Keeping the
Auto Collision industry sup-
plied with quality trained tech-
nicians is the best way for me to
satisfy the community college's
mission. Seeing current gradu-
ates going to work in collision
repair centers owned by gradu-
ates that I trained 20 to 25 years
ago is very gratifying."
For 27 years, NISOD has
emphasized the importance of
teaching excellence in open-
door settings. Its worldwide
consortium is dedicated to the
professional development of
faculty, administrators, and
staff and to the improvement of
teaching and learning, with the
ultimate goal of student suc-
cess. More than 600 communi-
ty colleges around the world are
NISOD members.

MidFlorida Federal Credit Union


plans merger and future expansion


On the heels of a successful
merger vote with Winter Haven
Hospital Federal Credit Union
recently, MidFlorida Federal
Credit Union is announcing an
expansion plan that will fore-
cast the community-chartered
financial institution to have 20
branches within the next 12-24
months.
"The merger was somewhat
unexpected," stated Kevin
Jones, president and chief exec-
utive officer of MidFlorida.
"The hospital has plans to
demolish the building on the
hospital campus that houses the
credit union. This left the credit
union facing the prospect of
physical separation from its
business sponsor and wonder-
ing how to adequately offer
convenience and additional
service to its members in an off-,
site environment. It was at that
point that MidFlorida
approached Winter Haven
Hospital Federal Credit Union
with a solution." stated Dale
Johnson, director of accounting
and vice chairman for Winter
Haven.Hospital Federal Credit
Union. "Merging with
MidFlorida was another revolu-
tion for our credit union. We
had done all we could with a
single sponsor. To offer the con-
venience, products and pricing,
our members wanted we had to
merge. It was an honor that
MidFlorida approached us."
This is MidFlorida's seventh
merger in the past 12 years. Of
the members voting in the
Winter Haven Hospital Federal
Credit Union merger nearly 92
percent voted in favor of the
merger. As part of the merger
agreement, MidFlorida guaran-
teed positions for all of the staff
and promised to continue to
operate an ATM machine in
Winter Haven Hospital. The
combined credit union will
boast $845 million in assets,
$560 million in loans, 113,000
members, 350 employees and


17 local branches.
While the Winter Haven
Hospital Federal Credit Union
facility will be closed following
the. merger, MidFlorida plans
nothing but opening new doors
moving forward with the
announcement of its plans to
expand its branch network in
the Lakeland, Winter Haven
and Sebring markets. Jones
stated, "The tremendous growth
in our core markets fueled our
decision to infill branches in
areas of high customer concen-
tration." MidFlorida's most
recent addition reflecting this
plan was the opening of its
Auburndale facility earlier this
year. 'This convenient location
has already become a popular
branch.
Recent acquisitions of prop-
erty in Christina Plaza in south
Lakeland and a corner lot at
Spirit Lake Road and Winter
Lake Road (adjacent to CVS) in
southwest Winter Haven, as
well as the pending contracts on
property in north Lakeland on
U.S. 98 near Duff Road and on
U.S. 27 in Lake Placid, outline
MidFlorida's in-fill strategy for
growth. "We have worked dili-


gently to find locations that we
feel will be positioned to conve-
niently serve the majority of our
existing members," one's con-
cluded.
The Christina Plaza purchase
will allow MidFlorida to extend
its South Lakeland branch,
6040 S. Florida Avenue, to
include 10 drive-thru lanes, a
new vault to allow for safe
deposit boxes and a new park-
ing lot for employees so the
customer parking adjacent to
the branch is enhanced.
All new facilities featuring
state-of-the-art equipment are
planned for the lot purchased in
southwest Winter Haven and
the prospective properties in
north Lakeland and Lake
Placid. Additionally.
MidFlorida executives are
reviewing possible locations in
southeast Lakeland and hope to
make a decision within the next
six to 12 months.
MidFlorida has branches in
Sebring, Lakeland, Winter
Haven, Bartow, Haines City,
Lake Wales, Poinciana,
Arcadia, Wauchula and
Okeechobee.

Former

Minnesota

official picked

to oversee K-12
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - A
Republican candidate for
Congress in Minnesota who
was removed as her state's
education commissioner when
the Senate refused to confirm
her was hired as Florida's K-
12 chancellor.
Cheri Yecke was picked by
Education Commissioner John
Winn to replace Jim Warford,
who resigned last month after
supervising the public school
system for two years.
Critics in the Democratic
controlled Minnesota Senate
considered Yecke a divisive
ideologue and didn't agree
with her approach to educa-
tion policy.
But her ideas will fit in well
with Republican Gov. Jeb
Bush.
She's a social conservative
who supports the idea of
vouchers, aggressive testing
and accountability measures
for schools. Like the governor,
she created a system to grade
schools. She also embraces
the federal No Child Left Act
that was pushed through by
Bush's brother, President
Bush.
Yecke, 50, has also served
as Virginia's education secre-
tary.


Stuart man dies

after deputies

fire stun gun
Associated Press
STUART - A man who
was combative and crawling
naked through the woods died
after deputies fired their stun
guns at him twice, officials
said Monday.
Brian Lichtenstein, 31, of
Stuart, was crawling through
the woods naked on Friday
night, the Martin County
Sheriff's Office said.
He was yelling "leave me
alone" and "I want to die,"
deputies said.
Officials ordered him to
come out of the woods and
deputies went about 50 feet in
to try and get him out. They
fired their stun guns at him
twice when he jumped up
aggressively, the sheriff's
office said.
Deputies said he was in a
"highly excited state and was
combative." They did not
know whether the stun gun
had any effect or even made
contact with him, the sheriff's
office said.
Lichtenstein was transport-
ed to Martin Memorial North
where he was admitted and
then died on Saturday.
The body was transported
for an autopsy and the med-
ical examiner ruled the death
was caused by cocaine toxici-
ty, the sheriff's office said.


Catholic church

dismisses priest

who stole
Associated Press
INDIALANTIC - A new
Roman Catholic priest has
admitted stealing $10,520
from his church's coffers and
was dismissed from his duties.
But the Rev. Marek
SMaczynski won't face prose-
cution because he wrote a let-
ter of apology and returned
the money.
Weekly audits showed the
discrepancy at Holy Name of
Jesus Catholic Community,
and.church officials this
month reported the missing
money to the Brevard County
Sheriff's Office.
Bishop Thomas Wenski at
the chancery office in Orlando
didn't press charges because
Maczynski was apologetic,
Diocese of Orlando spokes-
woman Carol Brinati said
Monday.
Had the diocese sought
prosecution, Maczynski could
have faced charges of grand
theft, which is a third-degree
felony, said sheriff's Agent
Dan Singleton.
The church, operating since
1962, has about 10,000
parishioners.

Governor will

issue pardons

in hiring probe
Associated Press
FRANKFORT, Ky. -
Gov. Ernie Fletcher, on the
eve of an appearance before a
grand jury investigating his
administration's hiring prac-
tices, said Monday he would
issue pardons to current and
former members of his admin-
istration charged in the probe.
Fletcher also said he would
appear before the grand jury
but would not testify.
The grand jury was impan-
eled in June and has charged
nine current and former mem-
bers of Fletcher's administra-
tion with misdemeanor viola-
.tions of the state's personnel
law for basing hiring on polit-
ical considerations rather than
merit.
Fletcher said anyone
responsible for violating the
law would face the penalties
that could be imposed by two
administrative agencies that
are also investigating.
SDemocratic Attorney
General Greg Stumbo said in
a statement that Fletcher has
"slammed the door on the
public's right to know what
wrongs his administration has
committed."
Fletcher, a Republican,
repeated his accusation that
Stumbo has been carrying out
a political vendetta and com-
pared most of the charges that
have been brought to minor
violations of fishing laws.


Katrina's full wrath still being felt as


body count rises along Gulf Coast


By HOLBROOK MOHR
Associated Press Writer
GULFPORT, Miss. -
Rescuers in boats and helicop-
ters searched for survivors of
Hurricane Katrina and brought
victims, wet and bedraggled, to
shelters Tuesday as the extent
of the damage across the Gulf
Coast became ever clearer.
Mississippi's governor said the
death toll in one county alone
could be as high as 80.
"At first light, the devasta-
tion is greater than our worst
fears. It's just totally over-
whelming," Louisiana Gov.
Kathleen Blanco said the morn-
ing after Katrina howled ashore
with winds of 145 mph and
engulfed thousands of homes in
one of the most punishing
storms on record in the United
States.
In New Orleans, meanwhile,
water began rising in the streets
Tuesday morning, apparently
because of a break on a levee
along a canal leading to Lake
Pontchartrain. New Orleans lies
mostly below sea level and is
protected by a network of
pumps, canals and levees.
Many of the pumps were not
working Tuesday morning.
Officials planned to use heli-
copters to drop 3,000-pound
sandbags into the breach, and
expressed confidence the prob-
lem could be solved within
hours.
Gov. Haley Barbour of
Mississippi said there were
unconfirmed reports of up to 80
deaths in Harrison County -
which includes devastated
Gulfport and Biloxi - and the
number was likely to rise. An
untold number of people were
also feared dead in Louisiana.
At least five other deaths across
the Gulf Coast were blamed on
Katrina.
"We know that there is a lot
of the coast that we have not
been able to get to," the gover-
nor said on NBC's "Today
Show." "I hate to say it, but it
looks like it is a very bad disas-
ter in terms of human life."

Tens of thousands
without shelter
Along the Gulf Coast, tree
trunks, downed power lines and
trees, and chunks of broken
concrete in the streets prevented
rescuers from reaching victims.
Swirling water in many areas
contained hidden dangers.
Crews worked to clear high-
ways. Along one Mississippi
highway, motorists themselves
used chainsaws to remove trees
blocking the road.
Tens of thousands of people
will need shelter for weeks if
not months, said Mike Brown,
director of the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency. And once the floodwa-
ters go down, "it's going to be
incredibly dangerous" because
of structural damage to homes,
diseases from animal carcasses
and chemicals in homes, he
said.
Officials warned people
against trying to return to their
homes, saying that would only
interfere with the rescue and
recovery efforts.
More than 1,600 Mississippi
National Guardsmen were acti-
vated to help with the recovery,
and the Alabama Guard planned
to send two battalions to


'This is our tsunami.'
A.J. HOLLOWAY, Biloxi, Miss., mayor


Mississippi.
"We know that last night we
had over 300 folks that we
could confirm were on tops of
roofs and waiting for our assis-
tance. We pushed hard all
throughout the night. We hoist-
ed over 100 folks last night just
in the Mississippi area. Our
crews over New Orleans proba-
bly did twice that," Capt. Dave
Callahan of the Coast Guard
Aviation Training Center in
Mississippi said on ABC.
National Guardsmen brought
in people from outlying areas to
the Superdome in the backs of
big 2 1/2-ton Army trucks.
Louisiana's wildlife enforce-
ment department also brought
people in on the backs ol their
pickups. Some were wet, some
were in wheelchairs, some were
holding babies and nothitnt
else.

New Orleans ravaged
by flooding
In New Orleans, a city ol
480,000 that was mostly evacu-
ated over the weekend as
Katrina closed in, those who
stayed behind faced another.
delayed threat: rising water.
Failed pumps and levees appar-
ently sent water fiom Lake
Pontchartrain coursing through
the streets.
The rising water forced one
New Orleans hospital to move
patients to "the Louisiana
Superdome. where some 10.000
people had taken shelter, and
prompted the staff of Nen\
Orleans' Timies-Pic avtne news-
paper to abandon its offices,
authorities said.
Downtown streets that were
relatively clear in the hours
after the storm were filled with
I to 1 1/2 feet of water Tuesday
morning. Water was knee-deep
aroutlnd the Superdomie. Canal
Street was literally a canal.
Water lapped at the edge of the
S-'"g y g --


French Quarter. Clumps of red
ants floated in the gasoline-
fouled waters downtown.
As for the death toll in
Louisiana, the governor said
only: "We have no counts what-
soever, but we know many lives
have been lost."
The biggest known cluster of
deaths was at the Quiet Water
Beach apartments in Biloxi, a
red-brick beachfront complex
of about 100 units. Harrison
County. Miss.. emergency oper-
ations center spokesman Jinm
Pollard said about 30 people:
died there.
" Ihis is our tsunanii," Mayor
A. J. Holloway of Biloxi, Miss.,
told 7ie Biloxi Siu Herald.
Joy Schovest. 55, was in the
apartment complex with her
boyfriend, Joe Calvin, when the
water began rising. They stayed
despite a mandatory evacuation
order.
"The water got higher and
higher," she said, breaking into
tears. "It pushed all the doors
open and we swamr out. We
grabbed a lady and pulled her
out the window and then we
swam with the current. It was
terrifying. You should have
seen the cars floating around us.
We had to push them away
when we weie trying to swim."

Residents returning to
total devastation
Teresa Kavanagh, 35, of
Biloxi, shook her head is disbe-
lief as she took photographs of
the damage in her hometown.
"Total devastation.
Apartment complexes are
wiped clean. We're going to
rebuild, but it's going to take
long time. Houses that with-
stood Camille are nothing but
slab now." she said. Hurricane
Camille killed 256 people in
Louisiana :anld NMi;issiippi in
1969.
The hurricane knocked out
SW.I


power to more than I million
people from Louisiana to the
Florida Panhandle, and authori-
ties said it could be two months
before electricity is restored to
everyone.
Oil prices jumped by more
than $3 a barrel on Tuesday,
climbing above $70 a barrel,
amid uncertainty about the
extent of the damage to the Gulf
region's refineries and drilling
platforms.
By midday Tuesday,.Katrina
was downgraded to a tropical
depression, with winds around
35 mph. It was moving north-
east through Tennessee at
around 21 mph.
Forecasters said that as the
storm moves north over the
next few days, it could swamp
the Tennessee and Ohio valleys
with a potentially ruinous 8
inches or more of rain. On
Monday, Katrina's remnants
spun off tornadoes and other
storms in Georgia that smashed
dozens of buildings and were
blamed for at least one death.
According to preliminary
assessments by AIR Worldwide
Corp., a risk assessment compa-
ny, the insurance industry faces
as much as $26 billion in claims
from Katrina. That would make
Katrina more expensive than
the' previous record-setting
storm. Hurricane Andrew,
which caused some $21 billion
in insured losses in 1992 to
property in Florida and along
the Gulf Coast.
Anne Anderson said she lost
her family home in Gulfport.
"My family's an old
Mississippi family. I had
antiques, 150 years old or more,
they're all gone. We have just
basically a slab," she told NBC.
She added: "Behind us we have
a beautiful sunrise and sunset,
and that is going to be what I'm
going to miss the most, sitting
on the porch watching those."

Sun 'N Lake landowners to


vote on supervisors Sept. 14


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Landowners in
the Sun 'N Lake Improvement
District will get their chance to
change local government.
The board of supervisors has
set a special meeting at 9 a.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 14, for a new
landowners' election.
Three members of the board
represent the landowners by a
system of one lot, one vote. On
Aug. 18, three of the district's
largest landowners asked for a
recall of those representatives.
In a letter, John Greytak,
owner and developer of
Tanglewood; John Harding,
president and chief executive
officer' of Florida Hospital
-Heartland Division; and Greg


Spiro with National Recreation
Properties Inc., said they were
frustrated with the inability of
the local board to come to con-
sensus on various issues.
Recalling the seats would
mean holding new election on
Chairman Bob Schaeffer, and
supervisors Charles McHale
and Robert Severino. On Aug.
26, the board of supervisors set
Sept. 14 as the day for that.
After that, the board is
expected to discuss and make
decisions regarding the general
manager position on Friday,
Sept. 23.
Supervisors Marvin Fischer
and John Clark hold popular-
vote seats. After Supervisor
Larry Bertetto resigned, Clark


was installed by a vote of the
board of supervisors, which is
allowed under the district's
enabling ordinance.
Fischer has been suggested
as a new, general manager for
the district. If he resigns to do
that, his seat could be replaced
in the same way, making two
popularly-elected seats filled by
board appointment.
The district has engaged
Severn Trent Services Inc. to
run the entire district's opera-
tions, an increase in duties from
the original contract to handle
the water and sewer utilities.
Greytak has said Severn
Trent did not want to act as gen-
eral manager, but did so when
asked by the supervisors.

Dear Pharmacist:

Will it work as well?
W.D., Austin, Texas
Dear W.D.:
Yes, it should. Your insur-
ance company is trying to mini-
mize its expenditures by refus-
ing to pay for an expensive drug
when others are cheaper and
still effective.
There's some interesting his-
tory involved. Nexium is
spawned from another acid-
reducing drug called Prilosec.
You could say that Prilosec
turns into Nexium in the body

There are two

Dear Pharmacist:
I have depression and my
medicine (Paxil CR) is no
longer available from the phar-
macy. What should I do?
R.D., Cape Cod, Mass.
Dear R.D.:
Your pharmacist needs to
make a phone call to your doc-
tor to switch your medication to
the generic, paroxetine. Don't
worry, it will be just effective as
its expensive counterpart.
Just to make sure you're safe,
I'm going to remind you that
this medication is often given in
the morning with breakfast, to
minimize nausea. It can also
cause restlessness, tremors and
suppressed appetite for both
food and sex. These side effects
occur with both brand and


generic.
Don't run out of your medi-
cine; make sure you are
switched to an alternative
before you do, since withdrawal
symptoms from antidepressants
can be dangerous.

Did you know?
You can soak dentures
overnight in white vinegar,
which kills bacteria and softens
plaque buildup. Brush away tar-
tar with a toothbrush in the
morning and rinse well.

Amy Campbell of Sebring
has been a blood donorfor
25 years and has given six
gallons.
Campbell is employed at
Campbell's Collision in
Sebring.
"It's a good way to help
other, "she said.
Campbell donates blood
and pheresis because there
is a need. "It only takes a
small amount of time out
of your life to save otler
people's lives."

The blood supply is crit-
ically low and all commu-
nities should plan to be
prepared in case a crisis
should hit. What better
way than to make sure the
blood supply does not
dwindle.
The blood bank needs to
bring at least 16-20
donors a day and our
mobile unit needs at least
20 units a day to keep
supplies steady.


The blood stock has to be
replaced regularly to keep a
current supply of blood prod-
ucts because different blood
products have a different shelf
life.
* Red blood cells have a
shelf life of 42 days
* Platelets have a shelf life
of five days
* Fresh frozen plasma has a
shelf life of up to one year
Therefore, one reason to
donate on a regular basis is to
ensure that there is a continuous
supply of blood products avail-
able for our hospitals to use
when its needed. A large num-
ber of people depend on the
continued generosity of others
who are healthy.
For the sick 'person who
needs a transfusion, blood may
be the difference between life
and death. The average-adult
has about five liters of blood in
their body. One unit of donated
blood is slightly less than a pint,
or 450 ml.
Giving blood doesn't
decrease the health of the
donor. In fact, it increases the
health of males by decreasing
their likelihood of having a
heart attack or stroke.
Our body replenishes a con-
trolled blood loss by itself with-
in a short period of time.
Red cells have to be used
within 42 days. People who
have suffered great blood loss
may require as much as 50 units
of red blood cells. One or two
serious accidents are often
enough to drain our local blood
supply.
Donating blood is safe.
Scrupulous tests are carried out
on every single donation,


beginning with the ,,
questionnaire filled
out by the donor, and
including multiple '.
tests on the donated
unit prior to its infu-
sion.
There is no substi-
tute for human blood.
Unfortunately science LIFO
hasn't yet figured out
how to make artificial C
,blood. Until it does,
we must rely on the
generosity and sense
of duty for those who so gra-
ciously donate without expect-
ing anything in return.
Blood is needed every day. In
Highlands County during the
first quarter of this year, we did
not collect enough to supply the
needs of our local hospitals. We
bought 19 units from other
blood banks to fill the gap
between what we had collected
and what our hospitals used.
We did much better the sec-
ond quarter, April through June.
We collected 155 units ahead of
what the hospitals used. Many
of our regular donors answered
the call, and we thank you.
Those whose lives you saved
are also grateful for your will-
ingness to help them and your
generosity to take the time out
of your busy schedule to
donate.
We had 63 first time donors
between April and June.
Welcome to the "Heroes" club.
One in about 30 people regular-


SAVER
en Stroup


ly give blood. The
simple act of giving
is "heroic" and you
who donate are true
heroes to those
whose life you
saved.
The blood bank is
now open from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday. Those of
us who have difficul-
ty donating during
the week will find


this additional day of
great benefit. The blood bank
will continue to be open on
Thursday evenings as well its
regular daily hours.
And please watch for the
schedule of the blood mobile
elsewhere in the News-Sun, so
you can donate when it is con-
veniently in your area. With gas
prices the way they are, this
will help you save a little
money instead of driving to the
blood bank.
If you have any questions,
about your ability to donate or
want to schedule an appoint-
ment to help facilitate your time
schedule, call Florida's Blood
Center - Highlands County at
382-4499.

This is the eighth in a series

Board.

Good work

Highlands County Sheriff's Office and Sebring Police
Department officials are hoping an arrest they made last
week will close the books on one robbery and three
attempted robberies in the past few weeks.
Hector Velazquez, 46, of Sebring, has been charged
with robbery and fleeing or attempting to elude law
enforcement. He recently moved here from New York to
work in Sebring.
Officials say on Friday 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.
They believe the white Ford Escort is the same one
used in two attempted bank robberies two weeks ago. In
those cases, a fake bomb package was delivered or
attempted to be delivered to drive-through tellers. Both
involved someone driving a white Ford Escort and wear-
ing surgical gloves, some kind of mask and a camouflage
cap.
In both cases, the driver drove away in a white Ford
Escort.
It was keen attention that helped law enforcement offi-
cials catch Velazquez on Friday. Sheriff's Capt. Mark
Schrader was close to the,Comcast robbery scene when
Velazquez pulled out of Herring Avenue in front of him.
Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr said Velazquez has
been questioned in the attempted bank robberies and the
recent robbery of the Movie Gallery in Sebring. Those
cases are still under investigation.
Velazquez is being held in Highlands County Jail.
His capture was good work on the part of Sebring
police and county deputies. Hopefully the rest of their
work will help close the books on the other robberies.

A walk down the ragged edge of idolatry


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927


Skepticism of

wild claims

Editor:
On Aug. 10, health colum-
nist Ray Fisch writes, "The
energy that children are born
with is very much like the ener-
gy the planet is changing to." I
have no idea what this means
and I am afraid to ask.
On Aug. 24, Fisch writes
"Sunlight in Australia is a
blessing in that skin cancer like
melanoma is rare." Fisch
apparently does not know that
Australia has a national cam-
paign warning people against
exposing skin to the sun, espe-
cially without lotion. Instead,
he draws the wrong conclusion:
"Skin lotions block the pores of
our skin and 'can cause a toxic
effect."
In the same column Fisch
recommends Ayurvedic medi-
cine, from ancient India.
Ayurvedic medicine teaches
that disease arises when the
body's energy points are
blocked. The Ayurvedic
Foundations. Web.site recom-
mends therapeutic vomiting, o
eliminate toxins. The same site
tells us that eating popcorn pro-
duces the same qualities in the
body as running outside in cold
weather. I had no idea that I
could substitute popcorn for
jogging.
The same places that sell
Ayurvedic remedies have a
variety of herbal medicines
from native traditions. The By
The Planet site, for instance,
sells capsules of a Peruvian
root that they say is effective
for anything from snakebite to
the HIV virus. The same site
recommends guacatonga leaf
for snakebite. The Herb
Research Foundation,
www.herbs.org, has no infor-
mation on either product,
which is not a good sign.
I certainly hope no one is
trying to treat snakebite with
herbal remedies. If there is one
thing we know about medicine,
it is to be suspicious of any
product that claims to cure
everything. Ray Fisch does not
have a healthy skepticism
toward wild claims.

United States is

now a target
Editor:
In the beginning, the United
Nations was to be a delibera-
tive body to negotiate resolu-
tions to international disputes.
Now, after 50 years of decay
and corruption, the U.N.
General Assembly is only a
means to bring the Third World
rulers to New York to party and
damn the United States, and we
are paying 20 percent of the U.
N. bill.
The UN is now seeking to
recreate itself as an arbiter of
international disputes. It wants
to be the judge, jury and
enforcer. The United States is
the target of the U.N.'s "Draft
Outcome Document" of the
recent High-level Plenary
Meeting of the General
Assembly. The U.S. had no


El

'H


choice tree, in time
S DEN cuts it down, uses
SS N part of it for fuel
- and from the most
Iannum suitable part carves
himself an idol that
he then proceeds to worship.
Isaiah is reporting God's plain-
tive question: "Why doesn't
such a person ask himself,
'What am I doing bowing down
to a block of wood?' "
Sadly even some followers of
the Christian faith seem to be
preoccupied with obeisance to
pictorial, carved or cast images
rather than to the God who has
clearly said that He alone must
be worshipped and that in spirit
and in truth (John 4:23-24). Not
through shrines, relics, departed
saints or anything but Himself.
Thousands of years ago God
punished the Hebrews for sin-
ning by sending poisonous ser-


pents among them. As they
prayed for forgiveness he
directed Moses to hoist a
bronze serpent high on a pole
and anyone who looked upon it
would be spared. The people
preserved that device and many
years later it had to be
destroyed as they had made it
an object of worship (Numbers
21:8-9 and 2 Kings 18:4). It is
my personal belief that God
will never permit the discovery
of Noah's Ark, as it would
become an object of worship,
big time!

If we accept that an idol is
anything that we place, above
God in our lives, while we may
wonder at the gullibility of the
primitives and their fetishes, the
fact is they have little to com-
pete for their devotion. In this
age of sophistication we have a


veritable smorgasbord of poten-
tial idols. It could be a job, the
pursuit of success; it could be
art, music, sports, a hobby or
even family; many things per-
fectly good and wholesome if
correctly positioned in our
scheme of things, but potential-
ly idolatrous.

For most of my adult life it
has been my passion for avia-
tion; the constant struggle to
keep appropriately placed its
demand for time, resources and
priorities relative to God, fami-
ly, church, employment, social
responsibilities, et-al, I person-
ally have walked the ragged
edge of idolatry.
How about you?

U.S. to "meeting all commit-
ments and obligations under
the Kyoto Protocol"; to "main-
tairi a moratorium on nuclear-
test explosions pending the
entry into force of the
Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-
Ban Treaty;'and call upon all
States to sign and ratify"; and
authorize "the commencement,
without delay, of negotiations
on ... effective measures for the
prevention of an arms race in

the president has firmly reject-
ed.
The U.N. "Outcome
Document" also mandates a
global tax and a United Nations
army.
The strategy undertaken by
Kofi Annan & Co. to overcome
any U.S. "resistance" was to
present this package to Mr.
Bush as a September surprise at
a special summit meeting slat-
ed for September. Kofi Annan
and Co. figured that President
Bush couldn't refuse to sign on,
so he would not look like a
"cowboy president,"
The Democrats and some
RINOs (Republicans in name
only) blocked John Bolton's
appointment and left the United
States without representation in
the United Nations.when this
plot was hatched. When
President Bush appointed
Bolton, they cried foul. Wonder
whose side they are on?
Ambassador Bolton got to
the United Nations in time to
learn of the document, and
block it If ever a U.S. President
needed tenacity and bluntness
in an ambassador to the United
Nations, it's now;
We hope Mr. Bolton's recess
appointment becomes a fixed
reality in the coming congres-
sional term but it may not as the
Democrats and the RINOs
would sink the United States
just to make President Bush
look bad.
We can thank God that
President Bush had the wisdom
to appoint John Bolton in time
to stop this attempted fraud on


the United. States.
SThanks . Democrats , and"
RINOs for blocking John
Bolton and almost causing a
crisis. But why do we thank
you, this is what you do with-
out thanks - block and
obstruct.

Rivers could

solve flooding
Editor:
Florida is blessed with a
number of rivers that could, in
part, be a viable solution to our
drought of flooding problems.
An example of a worthwhile
project in the works is the
Caloosahatchee River running


from Lake Okeechobee to Fort
Myers. Somne.very astute, plan-
ners have begun to implemernta
plan in which that valuable
body of water will involve an
above-the-ground reservoir that
will have the capacity to store
160,000 acre feet of water on
an 11,000-acre parcel of land
ranging from 12 to 16 feet of
depth.
Although the cost, of the
project will appropriate almost
$40 million, the. land has
already been acquired by the
water district.
We will, in my opinion, owe
a great deal to these individuals
who are working to conserve
one of this state's most valu-
able resources - water.

Cry 'havoc' and let slip the gods of war


You got to feel sorry
for poor Pat R
Robertson. This guy
has put his foot in his Mt
mouth so many times
in the last week, he's Wi
probably learned how
to floss with his
shoelaces. First, he goes on
his television show - "The
700 Club," and calls for the
assassination of Venezuelan
President Hugo. Chavez. And
isn't it refreshing that some-
body at last is speaking the
truth about our foreign poli-
cy? This could be the start of
a whole new trend. Next
thing you know President
Bush will show up at a VFW
rally and talk about how that
punk Putin is just itching to
be iced.
Of course, then the
inevitable happened: a few
nearsighted malcontents
wondered aloud about
Robertson's sanity and
whether or not he should be
herded off to a quiet place in
the country and fed a steady
diet of strained food, flavored
just enough to hide the taste
of the industrial strength
sedatives. Not to mention a
few Venezuelans who took
minor umbrage.
So Pat reluctantly went
back on TV, not to apologize,
but to say he didn't really say
what we all heard him say. "I
didn't say 'assassination'
(unh, yes you did). I said our
special forces should 'take
him out.' 'Take him out'
could be a number of things
including kidnapping."
Methinks the Reverend
Robertson is either spending
very little money on his pub-
lic relations firm or he has
made it his policy to plug his


ears and hum

ILKHIL Rob e r s o n
denied saying he
Durst said Chavez
should be killed
when he went back
on his television show and
told his audience that maybe,
what he meant to say, was
Chavez should only be kid-
napped a little.
Well, why didn't you say
so in the first place?
Kidnapping is so much
more civilized than out-and-
out assassination.
Assassination is so final,
what with the deadness and
all. But kidnapping allows
room for doubt, what with the
attendant missingness. Much
more mysterious and roman-
tic.
When you get right down
to it, he's right; the phrase
"take him out" could mean
many things. It could mean
- place him upright next to
the garage like a stack of old
National Geographies on
garbage night. Or maybe -
take him out to dinner and
then a movie followed by a
long slow drive to Inspiration
Point with the top down and
the "Best of Tony Orlando &
Dawn" playing soft and low.
He could have meant either of
those - but I doubt it.
Asked to comment about
Robertson's suggestion that
our government "take out"
Hugo Chavez, Donald
Rumsfeld laughed it off as a
ridiculous suggestion which
would never happen because
assassinations of foreign
leaders are illegal. Nobody
pointed out that so are the


stealing of elections and the
outing of CIA agents and the
torture of foreign detainees.
Sticky technicalities we've
seemed to dodge in the past.
Of course, The Good Rev
is being portrayed by the rad-
ical right as a wacky uncle
who likes his Hot Toddies a
tad too much; but remember,
this is the guy who once said
feminism was responsible for
women killing their children,
practicing witchcraft and
destroying capitalism.
So obviously his hold on
reality is about as tenuous as
a room deposit for Courtney
Love's fifth anniversary
sobriety party. We can't
expect him to lose his televi-
sion show, but one can only
hope his invitations to the
Lincoln Bedroom have been
assassinated. Or at least kid-
napped.

Pirro vs Clinton: A real fight for Hillary


WESTCHESTER -
DA Jeanine Pirro is about to
formally announce her can-
didacy for Senate from
New York, which will pit
her against Hillary in a bat-
tle royal. This is just the
kind of fight that Sen.
Clinton would have hoped
to avoid.
While Hillary would M
have no problem dispatch-
ing an opponent like Nixon
son-in-law Edward Cox or
Yonkers Mayor John
Spencer (the two other pos-
sible GOP contenders), Pirro
presents a real problem.
Jeanine Pirro is pro-choice,
pro-gun control, pro-affirmative
action, pro-gay-civil unions and
pro-immigration. And, of course,
she's a woman.
In a sense, Hillary will have to
end up running against someone
who is quite like herself in her
public positions: Except, of
course, Pirro is a good old-fash-
ioned anti-tax, anti-crime, tough-
on-terror Republican from the
suburbs.
Hillary would love to cloak her
Senate re-election as a necessity
in the face of a determined GOP
effort to overturn Roe vs. Wade
and to roll back the clock on gun
controls. But against Pirro, she
will be disarmed of all her best
issues. She will have to run on her


own record, which
is limited at best.
Pirro, on the
other hand, can
point out that
Hillary refuses to
say that she will
serve out her term
if elected - since
we all know that
lORE FROM the day the returns
MORRIS are in she will start
ORRIS her campaign for
president. (Hillary
ICKMORRIS has her own twist
on the famous line
of Gen. Sherman: "If elected, I
refuse to serve").
The Quinnipiac Poll recently
found that Hillary beat Pirro by
more than 30 percentage points
- but in the same poll, 60 percent
of the state's voters said that Mrs.
Clinton should pledge to serve out
her full term if she runs for the
Senate.
Jeanine looks weak in the polls
right now because she only has
about a 30 percent level of real
,name recognition statewide. But
the fact that about one Hillary
voter in three says that Mrs.
Clinton should promise not to run
for president if she seeks re-elec-
tion to the Senate is an indication
that all will not be well for her as
she seeks a second term.
If Hillary faced a right-wing
opponent, voters would overlook
her refusal to
promise to
serve if elected
me number. Only - but with
to be able to get Pirro, they may
)ns.. come to feel
to make room for that they have a
c h o i c e.
'rite to 2227 U.S. Recently, Pirro
S385-1954; or e- indicated, for
example, that
she would join
the bi-partisan


group of 14 senators who prom-
ised to save the Senate from
destruction by pledging to support
reasonable judicial nominees and
to refrain from unreasonable fili-
busters.
And Pirro doesn't need to beat
Hillary to wound her. If she fin-
ishes less than the 12 points
behind Clinton that Rick Lazio
managed in the 2000 election, it
will be a victory of sorts. Hillary
will have some explaining to do
to tell why fewer New Yorkers
wanted her to be re-elected than
voted for her in the first place.
And, at some point, Mrs.
Clinton may feel Pirro gaining on
them and wonder if it is worth the
battle.
It's worth remembering that
Hillary did not want Bill to run
for re-election for governor of
Arkansas in 1990 as he contem-
plated a race for president in
1992. (Back then she had a better
idea: She would run in his place!)
Hillary almost has a lock on the
Democratic nomination in 2008
and can build up a massive finan-
cial and political lead over all
possible rivals. But if she is
engaged in a nip-and-tuck battle
in New York to keep what she
already has, she will have to
divert $30 million or $40 million
from her presidential race and
spend her time in Rochester,
rather than in Iowa.
If Pirro posts some early gains,
particularly upstate, where it is
cheap to do early advertising,
Hillary and Bill may read the
handwriting on the wall and she
may pull out of the race.

Bill Clintonfor 20 years. Look for

We use our hands every minute of the day for the most delicate of tasks, to activ-
ities that require all the power we can muster. What if you couldn't button your but-
tons or zip your zipper because your fingers didn't move very well? Fastening jewelry
requires good sensation and very fine movements. Lifting a heavy couch out of the way
so you can vacuum the carpet requires maximum finger, wrist and arm strength.
Grocery shopping, cooking, dishes, balancing your checkbook, turning the key in the
ignition, driving a car, putting on make-up, shaving, styling your hair, caring for chil-
dren or spouses...from delicate to heavy activity our hands are the work horses of our
body. Even if you are unable to walk you can still take care of yourself - if you have
your hands.

Spoil Sunday

brunch bunch
Lazy Sunday mornings
never felt better. Here is the
ultimate comfort food to com-
pletely spoil your favorite
Sunday brunch bunch. Brie
Stuffed, French Toast With
Amaretto Poached Pears. I
borrowed this one from one
of our clients in New Haven,
Conn., Bella Rosa Cafe and
added a few of my favorite
flavors to absolutely boggle
your taste buds. You'll have
them clambering to get to
the table and share the
details of their lives with you.

Brie Stuffed, French
Toast with Amaretto
Poached Pears
Brioche bread loaf (or sub-
stitute with a hearty bread of
choice)
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1 vanilla bean (clean and
scrape, save beans for the
syrup and for the milk)
6 ounces brie cheese
1 cup whipped cream
4 pears (very ripe if possi-
ble)
Pinch of salt
2 teaspoons sugar (for
milk)
1/40 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar (for simple
syrup reduction)
4 ounces fresh raspberries
4 ounces amaretto or
frangellico
6 large fresh mint leaves

Carefully peel the skin
away from the pear leaving
the stem intact
Take 1 cup of water and 1
cup of sugar and mix thor-
oughly over medium heat in
a small sauce pan (just large
enough for the 4 pears) until
solution begins to thicken
slightly and coats the back of
a spoon well. Add amaretto
and 1/2 the vanilla beans to
syrup solution and place the
pears in as well. Cover; sim-
mer over low heat until pears
are tender about 1 1/2 hours
(can 1e done the day before
or in advance). Remove ten-
der poached pears, add 2
mint leaves and 4 ounces of
fresh raspberries (leave 1
ounce for garnishing) into
syrup solution and simmer
for about 45 minutes on low
heat then remove remaining
mint leaves.
Cut Brioche bread into (6)
slices about 1 1/2 inches
thick, then cut diagonally
into triangles and cut a pock-
et into the long edge of each
triangle slice. Mix 2 cups of
milk with.3 eggs and 1/2 the
vanilla beans, add 2 tea-
spoons sugar and incorporate
well. Place about 1/2 ounce
of brie cheese into each
bread pocket, then soak
bread into egg/milk mixture
and place into a pre-heated

hen savvy shoppers find designer
style at a great price, that's a bar-
gain. When good cooks find an
imitation ingredient with all the
flavor and texture of the original, that's dinner!
Surimi is an imitation crabmeat made from
Alaska pollock, a member of the cod family har-
vested from the cold, clear waters of the Bering
Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. This high-protein,
low-fat seafood mimics the taste and texture of
real, hard-shelled crab, but at a fraction of the
cost.
SSo, go ahead. Be lavish! Make more, more,
more of your favorite hot "crab" dip. Arrange a
generous mound of surimi on a platter, surround-
ed by dipping sauces, for a sophisticated appetiz-
er. Fold surimi into gourmet sandwich and wrap
fillings. Add it to chilled seafood salads or
warm, creamy pasta sauces. You'll find lots of
ways to use delicious and nutritious surimi. Your
secret is safe with us!

'Stepping' into a child's life


This year, one million chil-
dren, along with their parents,
will face divorce and the possi-
bility of remarriage.
As a result, the number of
stepparents is on the rise. If
you're over 30 and dating, you
have almost certainly considered
the role, either for you or for a
partner.
How do you pull it off grace- INS
fully (or cast a partner who will)?
Simply be the best person you RELATIO
can be and you will be the best
stepparent you can be. . Jan D
Sure, there are things that
complicate playing the role, just
as there are things that compli-
cate playing your other roles. But hold on to
the bottom line.
Perhaps the most detrimental thing you
can do in any relationship is to don a mask.
And children can be especially sensitive to
pretense, which includes adults trying too
hard to win their affection or artificially
assume a rank..
It's much better to be who you are. You
can do that really well, provided you know
who you are. And then you can identify a
genuine connection and build on it.
If Suzie likes the beach and you do, too,
you have a chance to spend time together
naturally. Don't start off trying to enjoy the
beach the way she does, though. Enjoy it
the way you do and be content to let her
enjoy it the way she does. Only then can


IDE
INSHIPS


you see where the common
ground is.
Kids don't like it when you
ask them a list of contrived lues-
tions or try to make yourself fit
into their world. Try to remember
that the role of stepchild may be
as challenging as the role of step-
parent - and it's not necessarily
taken on by choice. When chil-
dren are ready to let you in, they
will. And they're likely to do it
when you're not pushing too


einse Watching as a father tried to
coax his toddler into the ocean, I
jokingly offered, "You have to
make it more inviting."
"How can I do that?" he said.
"Act like you're having fun," I said.
Stay close. Accept children. Accept their
apprehension, even when it seems like
indifference.
When you try to force something on a
child - or an adult - there's a knee-jerk
reaction to defend against it. When you
have something good to share, it seems
pleasing. You don't have to talk a kid into
ice cream, and you're less apt to have to
talk him into green beans if you're not hard
selling the things.
What's good might not shine immediate-
ly, but goodness has a way of shining
through. Be patient. Give the child a safe
place tb feel what he (or she) feels. Being


anxious or judgmental is no way to get a
child to relax and warm up to you.
Trust that what you have to share is
good, and make sure it is. Don't push some-
thing that's a poor substitute for real love.
That's still the most important thing you
can give a child. And it means taking the
time to know a child, respecting him for
who he is and responding to his needs with
an attitude of caring.
It means not stepping into the role of
stepparent unless you want to. Don't try to
fool yourself and then be surprised when
the child doesn't buy it!
Be yourself. Do it with love and kind-
ness. Then the child is apt to respect you
and learn, in time, to like you. And you've
got time.
When you're not expecting an immediate
result, you can enjoy the process'of build-
ing a relationship with somebody else's
child. You can both learn to like each other
for who you really are.

Teen victim of abuse can't shake her feelings of guilt

childhood was not a normal one. I was
molested by a man that I called Dad. Last
summer he was sentenced to 15 years to life
- which is a severe punishment for him.
Abby, his family lives right across the
street from me. Many times when I see
them, I want to go over and say I'm sorry
for what I have put them through. But I
wanted if to stop - so I told. Do you think
I should apologize to them? - Feeling"
Guilty in the South
Dear Feeling Guilty: If anyone is owed
an apology, it is you - not the family of the
man who sexually abused you. YOU are the
victim in this situation, not the molester,
who is where he belongs for his criminal-
act, and not his relatives. You did the right
thing by telling what he did. .
I_ t's con ppm pr .victims of sexual crimes,
to feel guilt. Too often they blame them-
selves and wonder if they did something to
deserve it. It doesn't help that abusers rein-
force this notion by saying, "See what you
made me do?" Of course, that is the big lie.
Adults are supposed to control their impuls-
es. Counseling could help you understand
this, and I hope your mother or guardian
will see that you get some through a vic-
tim's assistance program or the Department
of Mental Health in your community.
Dear Abby: I have been married to
"Duncan" for five years. It's my second
marriage. I thought we were getting along
well, but now I'm wondering if he's having

Brooks & Dunn continue rootsy
turn on 'Hillbilly Deluxe' album


By JOHN GEROME
Associated Press Writer
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks
veered down a "Red Dirt Road"
two years ago and never looked
back.
The duo's new album,
"Hillbilly Deluxe," is a twangy
rock 'n' roll record with some
soulful ballads and rowdy
honky-tonk thrown in - much
closer in spirit and sound to
their last one, "Red Dirt Road,"
than to the good-time party
tunes of their early years.
"We kind of discovered a
sound we really liked and felt
we were at home with," Dunn
said recently from what he calls
his "barn" - actually a rustic
retreat where he does some of
his recording.
"There was a time when we
were literally instructed, or
advised, to write good time
honky-tonk songs that some-
how leave a positive note on the
table, and we chased that for a
long time."
Individually or collectively,
Brooks and Dunn wrote nine of
the 13 tracks on "Hillbilly
Deluxe." Songs such as "My
Heart's Not a Hotel," "One
More Roll of the Dice," "Her
West Was Wilder" and "Just
Another Neon Night," echo the
loose, rootsy rock they grew up
with. Sheryl Crow and Vince
Gill sing background on
"Building Bridges," a mid-
tempo song that's about as
radio friendly as anything on
the album.
Thematically, a song like
"Whiskey Do, My Talkin,"' a
dark rocker in which a guy
draws his courage from a bottle,
and "Believe," a soulful affir-
mation of life after death, is a
long way from the 1992 dance
smash "Boot Scootin' Boogie"
or the 1996 chart topper "My
Maria."
But the new songs aren't all
heavy. The first single, "Play
Something Country," and "She
Likes to Get Out of Town" are
foot-stompin' fun, and Dunn
even raps on the title track: "Put


on the smell good / Put on the
Skynyrd / Head into town like /
A NASCAR winner."
Both men say the songs
reflect the extremes of their
rearing. Dunn, in particular, felt
a strong tug in opposite direc-
tions. He describes his father as
a hard drinker who dreamed of
being a country singer and his
mother as a Bible-quoting tee-
totaler.
"When I was growing up I
gravitated from one extreme to
the other," says Dunn, whose
father died in 1986, before his
son's music career took off. "I
didn't know a middle ground."
Things came to a head when
he was a student at Abilene
Christian College in Texas.
"I got a call from the dean to
come in and talk to him. He
said they'd heard I was playing
in bars, and it was the policy
that students couldn't frequent
bars or clubs or any of those
kinds of establishments," Dunn
says. "He said, 'I'll give you a
choice. You can stay in school
and stop playing in bars, or
you've got to leave."'
Dunn left.
"There was a long dry spell
when I didn't think I'd made
the right choice. I thought, 'Am
I going to be pumping gas?"'
But in 1990, Arista Records'
Tim DuBois urged Dunn to join
forces with another struggling
solo artist, and Brooks & Dunn
was born. The move was
genius; together the duo have
scored 21 No. 1 hits and sold 27
million records.
Brooks said the partnership
makes it hard for either one of
them to let up.
"I know every time I turn the
corner he's working on some-
thing," Brooks said. "I think it
would probably be easier if I
was by myself to head for the
Caribbean for a month and just
tell everybody to leave me
alone. But when I know he's
sitting over here working, it
doesn't allo\\ me to do that."

Human cannonball soars across U.S.-Mexican border in latest stunt


TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) -
David Smith Sr., who already
holds a world record for the
longest distance traveled by a
human fired from a cannon,
now has another feat on his
record.
Smith was shot across the
U.S.-Mexico border on
Saturday, soaring about 150


feet and landing uninjured in a
net in San Diego with U.S.
Border Patrol agents and an
ambulance waiting nearby.
Although it is against the law
for anyone, including U.S. citi-
zens, to enter the country out-
side an official port of entry,
Smith Sr. wasn't crossing ille-
gally.


U.S. Border Patrol Chief
David Aguilar made an excep-
tion for him, said Border Patrol
spokesman Kurstan Rosberg.
And Smith flashed his U.S.
passport as he climbed into the
barrel.
Smith, of Half Way, Mo., is
listed in Guinness World
Records for record distance for


a human fired from a cannon.
He flew 185 feet, 10 inches on
May 29, 1998, in West Mifflin,
Penn.
Saturday's feat was the brain-
child of Venezuelan artist Javier
Tellez and is part of a series of
public art projects in the two
border cities.

Winter Haven


speeds past


Blue Streaks

By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING - The Winter Haven Blue
Devils were a little bigger and faster than the
Sebring Blue Streaks, and ran away from
Firemen's Field Monday night with a 27-0
win.
Sebring's defense played well in the first
half of the game, which was originally sched-
uled three days earlier, but eventually was
worn out after the offense failed to sustain a
drive. Despite the Blue Devils' superior speed
and size, they led only 7-0 at halftime and did-
n't score again until midway through the third
quarter.
After punting away its first two possessions,
Sebring lined up to punt again
Winter Haven faced with a fourth-and-18 situ-
7 ation on its own 22. A bad'snap
27 meant punter Clifton Fennell
Sebring wasn't able to get the kick off
O and Winter Haven took over on
the Sebring 14-yard line.
Up Next Quarterback D.C. Jefferson
At Palmetto on ran the remaining 7 yards on the
Friday second play and Chris Smith's
extra-point kick with 8:02
remaining'in the second period gave the visi-
tors all they would need.
The Blue Streaks got the ball with 2:54 to go
before halftime and drove 64 yards in nine
plays before attempting a 48-yard Paul Ashley
field goal that was just a yard or two short with
2.6 seconds to go.
Following another Sebring punt, Winter
Haven marched 56 yards in four plays for an
insurance touchdown in the third quarter.
Jason Taylor capped the drive with a 1-yard
plunge with 5:49 left, and Smith's kick was
good for a 14-0 lead.
Rather than point to any of his Blue Streaks
for the loss, Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin
gave credit to the Blue, Devils. ,
"They've got a lot of speed, and right now
we don't," Hamlin said on the field after the
game. "We've got to get better on third-and-
longs. When we get 'em in that situation,
we've got to get that stop. Offensively, we've
just got to get something going."

Quay Crenshaw of Lake Placid puts pressure on Moore Haven quarterback Rod Huggins Monday night. Cienshaw forced
Huggins to make a desperation pass on the play that was intercepted and returned for a TD by Tarik Hendricks.


Just winning not good enough



anymore for Maddox, Dragons


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
MOORE HAVEN - Not too long
ago, a win over Moore Haven would
have been reason to celebrate in Lake
Placid.
But coach Shaw Maddox isn't hold-
ing his Dragons to the standards of
those days. He's expecting much more
than what his team showed in
Monday's 13-6 win over the Terriers,
the.team LakiF Placid beat 37-7 last
year"to sia d"2--g mn.e troing streak
and the last team the ragons beat
before the skid started.
Maddox could find very little good
to say about his team's performance,
which netted a grand total of 63 yards
of offense.
"We got outplayed, we got out-
coached, we got outhustled, we got
outhit, we're just lucky," he said.


Was the fact that a win - any way
you get it - is better than a loss any
consolation?
"Not much when you play that
way," Maddox said.
Lake Pladd How about the fact
S that Monday's game
was the kind Lake
Moore Haven Placid, would have
6 found a way to lose not
too long ago?
SUp Next "We dang sure tried.
Openthis ': We did e\er thing We
week; play.at could do to lose,"
Okeechobee Maddox said.
on Sept. 9 "We were just fortu-
nate to win the ball-
game, and if we don't get a better
effort than that, that may be the only
one we get."
Maddox did see some good things
from the defense, which set up one of


Lake Placid's touchdowns and scored
the other, with Quay Crenshaw having
a hand in both scores.
Crenshaw scooped up a bad pitch
from Terrier quarterback Rod Huggins
and returned it 50 yards to the Moore
Haven 15, but it took the Dragons
eight plays to score from there before
they Brent Bierman ran in from inside
the 1-yard line on fourth down.
In the third quarter, Crenshaw's
pressure forced Huggins to try a des-
peration pass as Crenshaw was drag-
ging him down. The ball went straight
up in the air and fell into the hands of
Tarik Hendricks, who made the most
of the gift and rumbled 22 yards to the
end zone.
"Defensively, we played well in
spots. We had some key breakdowns

Red Devils bop Bolts


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Avon Park's Rafael Johnson brings down a pass Monday night.


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK - The Devils used the
basics to give Ridge Community its
first-ever lesson in football.
Avon Park's superior conditioning
and withering defensive play were the
keys to a 33-0 shutout of the new school
visiting from Davenport on Monday
night.
"They were a bigger, stronger football
team and we wore them out, and that's
what we're after: Be more physical than
they are." Avon Park head coach T.C.
Cousins said.
"They've got some athletes. They've
got some kids who can go get the foot-
ball," Ridge head coach Richard Tate
said.
Though the Devils squandered five
chances inside the Ridge 30, the defense
choked off the Bolts for only 132 yards
of total offense, never allowing them to
recover from falling behind early.
"They played their tails off. I mean,
they played hard," Cousins said of coor-


dinator Jermaine Wilson's defense. "We
gave the game ball to (Wilson) because
he had a great game plan, him and the
assistant coaches, and they did a great
job, and our defense kept us in the
game."

After allowing 28 yards
rushing on the first eight
plays from scrimmage, the
Bolts had minus-2 yards
on the ground the rest of
the way as the Devils
pounced on four Ridge
fumbles, and T.J. Gordon
picked off a pass late. Yet
the key, Cousins said, was
the two-way play of
Rafael Johnson.


"Offense, defense, special teams, he's
a one-man wrecking crew," Cousins
said. "He played well, our defensive line
played well, our linebackers played well,
but the catalyst of our team's Rafael,
without a doubt. He did so many good

. Matt Kenseth, counted out of
the title chase only a few races
ago, now is only 11 points out of
the top 10. He became the 11th
driver to win a race this year.
S.Jeff Gordon's upward mobility
continued with a sixth-place fin-
ish in the Sharpie 500. Incredi-
bly, Gordon now resides in the
top 10 with two races remaining
before the Chase begins.
S.Tony Stewart's eighth-place fin-
ish was his worst showing in the
past 10 races, but it padded his
points lead to 213. Ten races
ago, he was 380 points behind
Jimmie Johnson and in 10th
place. Of course, the edge will
mean little after two more races.
. Stewart's lead over 10th-place
Gordon is 611 points. If Stewart
maintains the lead, which is al-
most a certainty now, and if Gor-
don remains in 10th place, the
two will be separated by only 45
points entering the final 10 races,
thanks to the Chase format.
S.The relationship between Kevin
Harvick and owner Richard Chil-
dress appears to be deteriorat-
ing. Harvick has been talking
about moving on, and a split ap-
pears to be getting more and
more likely. Where will Harvick
wind up? That's hard to say.
O As expected, Scott Riggs will
move with his sponsor, Valvo-
line, to Ray Evernham's Dodge
operation next year. Sterling
Marlin appears to be his likely
successor at MB2 Motorsports.
. Ex-NFL players Roger Staubach
and Troy Aikman plan to debut
their own Nextel Cup team next
year. Could that be where Har-
vick is headed? Or might he
land at Joe Gibbs Racing in
Gibbs' No. 11 Chevrolet?
. Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s title hopes
are all but dead. He would have
to make up 117 points in.two
races in order to make the top
10. He would also have to move
past Gordon, Kenseth, Jamie
McMurray, Elliott Sadler and
Dale Jarrett in the standings.

Patience Pays Ofl



Whitt's breakthrough shows he's learning how to pick his spots


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week

On July 23, Brandon Whitt, a 22-
year-old from El Cajon, Calif., enjoyed
a career breakthrough by winning the
Craftsman Truck Series race at Mem-
phis Motorsports Park, a .75-mile oval
in Millington, Tenn.
Whitt had demonstrated consider-
able promise before, but Memphis sig-
naled his arrival as one of the sport's
genuine up-and-comers. Finally, in
Memphis, he managed to put it all to-
gether.
"It was. frustrating because we were
running so well," Whitt said. "The
teanlmwas really coming together, but
until Memphis, we just couldn't make
it through those last 15-20 laps when
everything was happening. Finally, we
reached the point where we put it to-
gether, and we started making it to the
end of races and getting some good
finishes.
"We finished in the top 10 in Ken-
tucky (July 9) and won Memphis, so
that showed we were starting to get
the bugs out. The team's coming to-
gether great. We've got a great rela-
tionship with TRD (Toyota Racing De-
velopment). They're helping us move
forward. Everything's really falling
into place."
Whitt said his victory was more
than just a matter of luck evening out.
"Adversity will teach you some-
thing," he said. "Every time some-
thing happened, I learned something.
The feel right before a tire blows out,
for instance. There were things I had
never experienced before. For me, I
learned the different feels of stuff
that was about to happen or could've
happened. From that aspect, there
were a lot of pluses that came out of
what seemed at the time like bad luck.
"A couple of problems have reoc-
curred, and because I've learned some
things, we've been able to cure them
just like that. We're not guessing any-
more. We've been through it."
Whitt has also learned to pick his
spots. Young drivers have a tendency
to seize every opportunity, which cre-
ates a higher likelihood of trouble and
also makes their moves predictable to
more experienced drivers they are at-
tempting to pass.
"My spotter tells me all the time to
be aggressively smart," Whitt said.
"You've got to pick your spot to be ag-
gressive. If you take too many
chances, you're going to wind up 'in
the fence.' There's a time and a place,
and you've got to pick and choose and
just be smart."


John Clark/NASCAR This Week
Brandon Whitt, 22, recently won his first Craftsman Truck Series race. He's beginning to
find that patience on the track is one of racing's great virtues.

Newman


Dale
Jarrett


Ryan Newman
vs. Dale Jarrett
The two tangled twice during the
Sharpie 500, and Jarrett's "payback"
- turning right into Newman while
Newman's Dodge was passing him
on the outside - represented a par-
ticularly devastating blew to Jarrett's
chance of making the Chase. "Mine
was unintentional, and his was inten-
tional," said Newman, "and that's all
I'm saying."
NASCAR This Week's Monte
Dutton gives his take: "Jarrett de-
clined comment after the incidents,
but it seemed remarkable that a vet-
eran driver would do something so
obviously destructive to his title
hopes. As one observer noted,
'Maybe it just felt good.'"




NASCAR has been coming
to California for years
California Speedway only joined
the Cup circuit in 1997, but NASCAR
has held races in Southern California
almost from the very beginning. The
Fontana track is located only a few
miles from two major tracks that are
no longer in operation. A huge shop-
ping mall exists where Ontario Motor
Speedway, a 2.5-mile track, once
stood, and the historic Riverside
road course hosted Cup events from
1958 through 1988. Races were run
at Carrell Speedway, in Gardena,
from 1951 through 1954, and Ascot
Stadium, in Los Angeles, was the
scene of races from 1957 through
1961.



Three-day ticket package
available for Atlanta
Atlanta Motor Speedway is of-
fered a three-day ticket package for
$69 that includes admission to five
events over three days on the Oct.
28-30 Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500
weekend. The package includes ad-
mission to qualifying, an all-star Leg-
ends Cars race, the IROC season fi-
nale, a Craftsman Truck Series race
and the Nextel Cup 500-miler. For
more information, go to www.atlanta-
motorspeedway.com or call the tick-
et office at (770) 946-4211.




Stewart might be
cheating his way to wins
If baseball has taught us any-
thing, it's that we can't trust athletes
these days. ... When I see Tony Stew-
art winning one race after another, it
makes me wonder - what's he doing
to cheat? Is his car on the juice?
Justin Collins
Elizabethtown, Ky.

NASCAR officials have thorough
pre- and post-race inspections at
every event. It's hard to get away with
much in this sport.

Sebring's A.C. Wilson finds some running room Monday against
Winter Haven.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
Winter Haven's final offensive
touchdown. Beginning on their
own 8, the Blue Devils drove to
Sebring's 12 before Deante
Lewis shook loose for a TD. A
bad snap negated the extra-
point attempt and Winter Haven
led 20-0 with 7:20 left in the
game. Jefferson, who was 6-
for-11 passing for 111 yards,
hooked up with wide receiver
Zack Charles for a 26-yard
reception on the big play of the
drive.
Charles finished with four
receptions for 100 yards.
Sebring quarterback Chris
Welborn hung tough despite 4-
for-14 passing for 34 yards, as
Sebring's offense only amassed
86 total yards to Winter
Haven's 299.
Melvin Jiles intercepted a
Welborn pass with Sebring
pinned deep in its own territory
and ran untouched into the end
zone for the final TD. Smith's
kick capped game scoring.
Starting guard Mike Kilmer
suffered a broken collarbone in
the game, the second time the
same injury has befallen a key

TAMPA - Charlie Garner's
reunion with Jon Gruden's
offense lasted three games.
The former Philadelphia, San
Francisco and Oakland running
back was among 16 players
released Tuesday when the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
announced cuts - the victim of
a knee injury that sidelined him
most of last season and didn't
allow him to compete for a job
this summer.
Garner, one of the NFL's
most productive backs over the
past six years, spent all of camp
on the physically unable to per-
form list. He signed a six-year,
$20 million contract that
included a $3.7 million signing
bonus before last season.
"He's worked very, very hard
to rehabilitate himself from a
devastating injury and I don't
think it's the last of Charlie

Garner. He's too much of a
competitor to end his career
like this," Bucs general manag-
er Bruce Allen said.
The 12th-year pro began his
pro career in Philadelphia,
where Gruden was offensive
coordinator before taking over
as coach of the Raiders.
Garner, 33, averaged nearly
100 yards of total offense with
the 49ers and Raiders from
1999-2003, but his production
declined the past two seasons
because of injuries.
He started the first three
games of 2004, gaining 111
yards on 30 carries and catch-
ing nine passes for 62 yards,
before he slipped making a cut
and tore the patella tendon in
his right knee against Oakland
on Sept. 26.
"It was a tough injury for a
running back to come back
from," Allen said.


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
things for us tonight, and he's
just an athlete."
In addition to helping hold
the Bolts to 9-for-24 passing in
the defensive backfield,
Johnson had two catches for 72
yards, one of which was a 41-
yarder from quarterback T.K.
Hill for the first score of the
game, and chipped in 9 rushing
yards as well.
It was on the ground where
the Devils showed the most
improvement from their
Kickoff Classic loss to Lake
Wales, going from negative
rushing yards then ;to 72 on
Monday.
"Our running game was a lot
better this week," Cousins said,
pointing to Ridge's sizable
defensive line. "We moved the
ball on the ground a little bit
more, and we're going to have
to."
While Gordon came on late
and wound up leading the team
on the ground with six carries
for 51 yards and a touchdown,
Cousins reiterated that Kaneef
Caldwell, second on the team
with 34 yards and a 5-yard
touchdown of his own, is the
No. 1 tailback.
"We have several tailbacks,
but Kaneef's still our lead guy,"
the coach said. "He's the one
that when he gets his hands on
the ball, he can go the distance
if you're not careful."
James Young, who rushed for
31 yards on nine carries, will
get the short-yardage and I-for-
mation snaps, but Monday
again showed that the bread-
and-butter of the Avon Park


DRAGONS
Continued from 1D
in certain spots, but the defense'
saved us tonight," Maddox
said.
"Offensively ... evidently we
don't know how to read our
armbands when we're supposed
to be gap
blocking. They
had one line-
backer running
through the A .
gap all night
long, and we
act like it was
some kind of MADDOX
Chinese puzzle
and we can't figure it.out."
A failed onside kick after that
score set up Moore Haven's 15-
play, 50-yard scoring drive, and
the Terriers responded in kind
with an onside kick of their
own, recovering it at the Lake
Placid 41.

"We're going to lean on T.K.
(Hill). We're going to lean on
his arm," Cousins said. "He's a
great football player. He's only
going to get better. He's just a
junior. He's a big part of our
team."
Hill completed nine of 18

But the tired Lake Placid
defense held, then turned away

in the final minutes, with O.J.
Williams ending the game with
an interception on the final
play.
Maddox said the fact
Hurricane Katrina delayed the
game until Monday and kept
the Dragons off the practice
field after Thursday may have
had a hand in the poor perform-
ance.
"That's an excuse, but I've
got to look for some reason for
us to come out that flat and play
that way," he said.
"We still just aren't mature
enough to turn it on and go play.
We had no enthusiasm, we had
no ... anything. It's frustrating.
"There's nothing I can call on
this (playbook) right here if
we're not going to block. I've
got a lot of things to call, but
they won't work."

Giller placed first in the 100 breaststroke with a
time of 1:18.25 while Freeland, Wolfe, Boyce
and Cuencas won the 400 freestyle in 4:09.82.
The boys 200 medley relay team of Quinlan
Wolfe, Brian Kirsch, Ronnie Sliwicki and
Brandon Wyngaard earned first place points for
Sebring in 2:00.00. Wolfe also captured the 200
freestyle in 2:01.47, while Sliwicki won the 200
individual medley in 2:31.47.
Avon Park's Jon-Michael Birt won the 50
freestyle in :23.50 and also won the 100 breast-
stroke in 1:15.64. Teammate Jose Rivera won the


and five penalties for 35 yards
against the offense alone were
enough to keep Hill's unit out
of the end zone for a 28:41
stretch in the middle of the
game.
"Defensively I thought we
picked it up and played well,
after they got the first turnover
down here and converted that
one in, and we kind of caught
up to the game speed I think,
and did a good job, for the most
part," Tate said.
"And then the wheels came
off, like it will sometimes with
a young team."
After receiving a 5-yard
penalty for arriving late to the
field after halftime, Ridge
attempted to pooch the second-
half kickoff to the 25-yard line,
but instead executed what
looked more like an onside kick
that was recovered and returned
50 yards for a touchdown by
Deven Wilson.
The score pushed a 13-0 half-
time lead out to 19-0 for Avon
Park, and served as the spark
for a sustained second half
effort that delighted the coach.
"It should have been about
30-0 at halftime, and I said,
'Look, if we can score 13, they
can score 13. Go out there and
play another hard half.' And we
played another tough half,"
Cousins said.
Likewise, with only three
days to prepare for Okeechobee
because of last week's hurri-
cane-related postponement,
Avon Park will try to keep its
momentum going without a
chance for full-contact practice
this week.
"It just messes you up,"
Cousins said of the condensed
schedule.

Steven Acvedo was second with 160.90.
Sebring's Arthur Stifel won the 100 butterfly
in 1:06.38, Wyngaard won the 100 freestyle in
1:01.30 and Avon Park's Jonathan Simadl won
the 500 freestyle in 7:12.83.
Wolfe, Sliwicki, Wyngaard and Nick Perilla
won the 200 freestyle in 1:41.84, while Wolfe,
Sliwicki, Pirella and Shaanan Spiegel won the
400 freestyle in 4:00.10.
Avon Park's coach Marsha May saw good
things from her boys and girls teams.
"I'm proud of them," she said. "They are
improving their times and that is what it is all
about."
