only worsen
By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE - High gas prices
and the possibility of short supply
couldn't come at a worse time for
Florida.
With thousands set to hit the high-
ways for Labor Day and the first week-
end of college football, officials
Thursday were closely monitoring the
state's gas supply, which was curtailed
by Hurricane Katrina, and urging
Floridians not to drive
more than necessary.
A handful of stations
in Highlands County and
across the state had run
out of fuel Thursday and
prices in some areas
exceeded $3 a gallon. In
Highlands County, prices
range from $2.79 to $3.19
on Thursday.
With fuel production
and pipelines off-line because of the
hurricane, supply was tight and officials
were warning that while there is plenty
of gasoline available in ports and on the
way, more stations could run out by the
weekend.
"I'm not kidding. We really have to
be serious about conservation," Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection Secretary Colleen Castille
said.
Industry and government officials


I


the situation
were nervously walking a fine line -
on the one hand trying to warn people
who may drive this weekend that some
stations may not have gas and ask them
to conserve, while also desperately try-
ing to reassure Floridians in an effort to
prevent a run that would worsen the sit-
uation.
"If everybody's topping off and fill-
ing up all the time that does not help the
supply situation," said Dave Mica, exec-
utive director of the Florida Petroleum
Council, who said the
supply was starting to get
better as gasoline
pipelines were being
fixed.


Gov. Jeb Bush said
people were clearly doing
that.
t "Because of peoples'
concerns, the increase in
consumption has been
pretty dramatic ... That
attitude creates part of the problem,"
said Bush, who spoke Thursday with
several mayors and other local officials
to ask them to urge people to conserve.
Several school systems around the
state said they had very short supplies of
diesel fuel for busses, and that if they
don't get additional fuel soon they may
have to close schools or have parents
drive their kids.
In Highlands County, school parents

Family faces



decision to



take child off



life support

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
Five-year-old Austin Naile, who was critically injured in an
automobile accident Sunday afternoon, has remained on life
support at Tampa General Hospital through most of the week.
A member of the family told the News-Suti Thursday night
that they were waiting on one more doctor's review before
deciding to remove young Austin from life support. Four doc-
tors have already have performed several scans and tests that
have shown no brain activity.
"They (Ron and Jennifer Naile of Palmdale, the child's par-
ents) said if there was no brain activity, they wouldn't keep him
alive on the machine," Mary Hendry Kish of Palmdale,
Jennifer's aunt, said Thursday night.
Kish said the family still holds onto hope, but Austin's con-
dition doesn't look good.
"He has been damaged at the base of his neck and he is not
breathing on this own. It (the respirator) is breathing for him,"
Kish said.
According to hospital officials, Austin was still listed in crit-
ical condition late Thursday night.
Austin was injured when his mother, Jennifer Naile, lost
control of her Ford Focus in bad weather, spinning into the
oncoming lane of traffic on State Road 66 near Winding Creek
Road.
Dorothy Allen, 70, of Sebring, driving a Buick Park Avenue
in the opposite direction, crashed into the Ford splitting it in
two. Allen was dead at the scene.
Austin, who was riding in the front seat next to his mother,
sustained head and possible spinal injuries. His mother sus-
tained multiple lacerations, and injured her arm. She was
admitted at Highlands Regional Medical Center and released
Tuesday.
Austin's sister, Cierra, 6, who was riding in the back seat,
was killed in the accident.
Austin was first transported to Highlands Regional as well,

Local groups begin collections


in support of Katrina'


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - The scope of
human compassion has truly
been displayed since the
onslaught of Hurricane Katrina
last weekend.
Thousands of volunteers
from across the country have
rallied to support those, impact-
ed most by the storm.
In Highlands County, resi-
dents can find a number of
groups that are collecting goods
to get to those who need it the
most.
Pastoral Ministries of Central


Florida Inc. is helping those in
Alabama and the surrounding
areas by providing much need-
ed supplies.
Pastoral Ministries has
already received donations of
cash, cases of diapers, wet-
wipes, baby food, personal care
items and antiseptic gel.
The public is invited to con-
tribute in this effort to assist
those in need.
The truck leaving for
Alabama is scheduled to leave
Wednesday. This is to allow
time for temporary shelters to
be better established.


s victims
The Rev. Brian B. Braddock
of Pastoral Ministries wants
everyone to lend a helping
hand.
"We try to get people the
things they need as soon as pos-
sible," Braddock said. "The
Red Cross is wonderful, but it
takes them time to respond; we
try to do what we can in the
interim."
This is not the first attempt to
help those victimized by
Katrina. Pastoral Ministries had
planned to depart earlier this
week to distribute aid, but its

Agencies call for energy conservation


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County may have been spared
the majority of Hurricane
Katrina's wrath, but the after-
effects are still tippling
throughout Florida.
Both Progress Energy
Florida and Glades Electric
Cooperative are asking cus-
tomers to curb their use of elec-
tricity in response to an alert
from the Florida Reliability
Coordinating Council, which


depends upon natural gas pro-
vided by facilities in the Gulf of
Mexico for 30-35 percent of
electric generation.
Cherie Jacobs, a spokesper-
son for Progress Energy, has
encouraged customers to be
mindful of their electricity use.
"We are asking that all cus-
tomers conserve energy where
ever possible," Jacobs said.
"Avoid using major appliances
until after 7 or 8 p.m. Your air
conditioner won't have to work
as hard to keep your home cool


while the appliance is on."
Conserving energy is impor-
tant all the time, but especially
during the aftermath of Katrina.
If conservation efforts fail, the
only alternative may be rolling
blackouts until the normal sup-
ply channels are fixed.
While the blackouts may be
necessary in the future, Jacobs
maintains that they are not a
concern currently.
"There is no risk of blackouts
at this.time, but if there contin-
ues to be a shortage of natural

Branham


pleads


not guilty

News-Sun
SEBRING - Michael
Branham has pleaded not
guilty, according to a motion
filed by attorney Lawrence
Shearer, out of Lakeland.
The defense attorney filed
the motion with the Hardee
County Clerk's Office early
this week. The 46-year-old man
has been charged with first-
degree murder after Hardee
County sheriff's deputies found
his wife dead at their home in
Wauchula.
Janette Branham, an attorney
in Avon Park, had reportedly
been seeking divorce from her
husband of 10 years.
When questioned on July 26,
2005, the morning after the
murder, Michael Branham said
she had come after him with a
pair of scissors. Evidence gath-
ered by Highlands County
Sheriff's Office crime scene
technicians appears to dispute
that claim.
In mid-August, a grand jury
indicted Michael Branham on
one count of first-degree mur-
der. His first pre-trial hearing
will be Tuesday, Sept. 27.


gas that may be a concern in the
long-term," Jacobs said.
Consumers are advised to
turn off lights when they aren't
being used, adjust thermostats
to at least 78 degrees, turn off
ceiling fans when no one is in
the room, and to use the
microwave instead of an oven
or stove as much as possible.
It also saves energy to cover
food before it is placed in the
refrigerator. The moisture from
uncovered foods evaporates,
making the refrigerator use
more energy.
Foods should also be allowed
to cool before being,placed in
the refrigerator or freezer, as
foods that are still warm can
make appliances work harder to
maintain a cool temperature.
The freezer also works more
efficiently when it is full than
when nearly empty. Adding
plastic containers with water in
them helps take up space. These
containers can also be used dur-
ing power outages to keep food
cool, and as water supplies once
they thaw.
If a blackout or brownout


should occur, Highlands
County Division of Emergency
Management has several sug-
gestions:
* Run your generator out-
doors only. Carbon Monoxide
from the exhaust fumes is dead-
ly.
* If you are on continuous
oxygen, use your portable tank
when the electricity is off. If
you don't have a spare oxygen
bottle, get one as soon as possi-
ble.
E If you are on regular nebu-
lizer treatments, time.your treat-
ments around the blackouts, if
the times are available. Most
blackouts are scheduled to
occur during peak electric
usage hours, generally daylight
hours.
* Turn your freezer tempera-
ture down to its coldest setting,
open your freezer or refrigera-
tor as little as possible during
the blackout periods.
* If you are under a "Boil
Water" order, boil all water for
drinking and cooking, or use
only bottled water for that time
period.

AVON PARK - Finding a
lost child quickly depends on
getting a lot of people looking
right away.
Law enforcement can now
enlist help from hundreds of cit-
izens at once, with just a series
of telephone calls by A Child Is
Missing Iic..
Consultant Don Scarbrough,
retired from the Broward
County Sheriff's Office, said
the non-profit group can send
out mass, prerecorded tele-
phone messages - 1,000 calls
per minute - to every home
and business in the area where a
child was last seen.
"We'll team up as a first-
responder," Scarbrough said.
"We'll give you more tools to
use."
It began in 1997. It's staffed
all hours, all days of the year, as
a free service to law enforce-
ment. It can help find
Alzheimer's patients, the men-
tally or physically handicapped,
college students, or unidentified
accident victims.
In Florida, messages go out
in English, Spanish and Creole.
Occasionally, it will team up
with the Amber Alert system,
for large searches, Scarbrough
said. It only calls land lines, but
wireless customers can go to
www.achildismissing.org to be
put on the service.

Park.


time is 90 minutes, he said. For
elderly, it's 23 minutes.
"We are most effective right
away in a small area,"
Scarbrough said.
Those first two or three hours
are critical. Most abduction and
murder victims are killed with-
in that time, Scarbrough said.
Police must call A Child Is
Missing with all the child's
information - name, age,
height, weight, sex, eye and
hair color, clothing, distinguish-
ing marks and daily habits - as

well as a call back number and
case number, for reference.
A Child Is Missing then uses
a satellite mapping system to
find home and business phone
numbers, including those along
roads or near a child's favorite
hangouts. Within 15 minutes, a
technician calls police to see if
it generated any leads.
Bonnie Gregg, sheriff's
director of communication, said
they have used the system.
The system can even call
ahead of a fleeing suspect. It
worked in a Las Vegas case. If
needed, A Child Is Missing can
inform people of a sexual
offender or predator living in
the area.
Scarbrough asked law
enforcement to be sure they fol-
low up with A Child Is Missing
when a child is found.
Gregg said one success came
when a new family was moving
into Avon Park Lakes and their
son wandered off. They used A
Child Is Missing and a woman
called up 20 minutes later. Her
son and this unknown boy were
in her backyard, playing.

then he went to the cooler to

was in his hand, Dennis
allegedly said, nothing and
offered to let the deputy
search him.
All he had was money in

Mom gets
probation for
daughter's
death
Associated Press
NAPLES - A woman
accused of killing her 15-
year-old daughter with a fatal
dose of methadone has plead-
ed no contest to aggravated
child neglect and given 10-
years probation.
SMary Reeve, a 40-year-old
home health care aide and the
daughter of a former Naples
mayor, had been accused of
giving her daughter,
Stephanie Reeve, the
methadone as a reward for
staying off drugs for a week.
Methadone is an opiate-deriv-
ative that's generally pre-
scribed as a treatment for
heroin addiction.
In exchange for her plea,
prosecutor Steve Maresca
dropped an attempted first-
degree murder charge.
Authorities said Stephanie
Reeve died July 21. 2003, of
a methadone overdose, but
noted there were other drugs,
including methadone deriva-
tives, in her system. A plastic
bag briefly placed over
Stephanie's head earlier in the
day played no role, and police
said they don't know why the
mother did that.
Berry said Mary Reeve is
manic depressive, believed
she was dying and intended to
kill herself. She was a drug
addict but is sober now, he
said.

Former officer
sentenced in
bribery case
Associated Press
MIAMI - A former state
corrections officer has been
sentenced to more than nine
years behind bars for his part
in a scheme to provide prison-
ers with food, clothing, jewel-
ry and even cell phones in
exchange for cash.
William Traber, 45, drew
the longest sentence of any of
the five people arrested in
March 2004 during the under-
cover police sting at the South
Florida Reception Center.
Traber pleaded guilty to rack-
eteering, insurance fraud,
bringing illegal contraband
into prison and other charges.
State Attorney Katherine
Fernandez-Rundle said that
while working as a correc-
tions sergeant at the prison,
Traber brought inmates cell
.phones. and' helped dispose of
cars forljnmates and other
guards in insurance fraud
scams. He also told one
inmate that he wanted his
estranged wife beaten, prose-
cutors said.
The other defendants in the
case, known as "Operation
Jail-Mart," have received
prison sentences or probation,
according to court records.


Superdome evacuation disrupted


because of arson and gunfire


More National
Guardsmen are
sent in
By ADAM NOSSITER
Associated Press Writer
NEW ORLEANS - Fights
and trash fires broke out at the
hot and stinking Superdonme
and anger and unrest mounted
across New Orleans on
Thursday, as National
Guardsmen in armored vehicles
poured in to help restore order
across the increasingly lawless
and desperate city.
"We are out here like pure
animals. We don't.have help."
the Rev. Issac Clark, 68, said
outside the New Orleans
Convention Center, where
corpses lay in the open and
evacuees complained that they
were dropped off and given
nothing.
An additional 10,000
National Guard troops from
across the country were ordered
into the hurricane-ravaged Gulf
Coast to shore up security, res-
cue and relief operations in
Katrina's wake as looting,
shootings, gunfire, carjackings
and other lawlessness spread.
That brought the.number of
troops dedicated to the effort to
more than 28,000, in what may
be the biggest military response
to a natural disaster in U.S. his-
tory.
"The truth is, a terrible
tragedy like this brings out the
best in most people, brings out
the worst in some people," said
Mississippi Gov. Haley
Barbour on NBC's "Today"
show. "We're trying to deal
with looters as ruthlessly as we
can get our hands on them."

Superdome in chaos
The Superdome, where some
25,000 people were being evac-
uated by bus to the Houston
Astrodome, descended into
chaos.
Huge crowds, hoping to
finally escape the stifling con,-,
fines of the stadium, jammed
the main concourse outside the
dome, spilling out over the
ramp to the Hyatt hotel next
door - a seething sea of tense.
unhappy, people packed shoul-
der-to-shoulder up to the barri-
cades where heavily armed
National Guardsmen stood.
Fights broke out. A fire
erupted in a trash chute inside


the dome, but a National Guard
commander said it did not
affect the evacuation.
Outside the Convention
Center. the sidewalks were
packed with people without
food. water or medical care, and
with no sign of law enforce-
ment. 'Thousands of storm
refugees had been assembling
outside for (lays, waiting for
buses that did not come.
At least seven bodies were
scattered outside, and hungry.
desperate people who were
tired of waiting broke through
the steel doors to a food service
entrance and began pushing out
pallets of water and juice and
whatever else they could find.
An old man in a chaise
lounge lay dead in a grassy
median as hungry babies wailed
around him. Around the corner.
an elderly woman lay dead in
her wheelchair, covered up by a
blanket, and another body lay
beside her wrapped in a sheet.
"I don't treat mny dog like
that," 47-year-old Daniel
Edwards said as he pointed at
the woman in the wheelchair. "I
buried my dog." He added:
"You can do everything for
other countries but you can't do
nothing for your own people."
You can go overseas with the
military but you can't get them
down here."

Buses going nowhere
Just above the convention
center on .Interstate 10, com-
mercial buses were lined up,
going nowhere. The street out-
side the center, above the flood-
waters. smelled of urine and
feces, and was choked with
dirty diapers, old bottles and
garbage.
"They've been teasing us
with buses for foui days."
Edwards said.
People chanted. "Help.
help!" as reporters and photog-
raphers walked through. The
crowd got angry when journal-
ists tried to photograph one of
the bodies, and c i,\ered it oxei
w\ith a blanket. A woman,

Sebring


welcomes


holiday


- cyclists
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Labor Day
weekend is the Tour of Sebring
sponsored by Kenilworth
Lodge and the West Palm
Bicycle Club.
Madge - Stewart, owner of
Kenilworth Lodge, said there
have. been few cancellations
and the weather should cooper-
ate for a beautiful weekend.
"This is the biggest bike
event for our area and we're
expecting 400-600 riders.
They'll start arriving Friday
and fill our area's hotels. This
event has been going on for 25
years. It always helps local
businesses and the Bicycle
Club prefers holding it here
because Highland County driv-
ers are so courteous," she said.
Bike riders usually start on
the road at 7-7:30 a.m. so area
drivers should be aware and
alert for cyclists. Florida State
Law dictates that cars share the
road because bicyclists have
the same rights and responsibil-
ities. Each day (Saturday,
Sunday and Monday) there are
different routes from 20 to 100
miles in length, depending on
the rider's stamina. Sunday is
the Century Route of 100 miles
to Lake Wales and back.
Tour of Sebring is an SAG
(supplying support and gear)
event of predetermined routes
and rest stops. There will be
SAG vehicles on the road with
mobile radio operators to assist
if there is a bike breakdown or
heat exhaustion. All of the
bicyclists will have numbers on
their back, so they can be iden-
tified and accounted for. At the
rest stops there will be
Gatorade, water, fruit, sand-
wiches and protein bars to
replenish the energy.
Registration is at. the
Kenilworth. Participants can
purchase the three-day full
event, or just a one-day ticket,
and walk-ins are welcome. A
meal is inclusive in the price.
Literature will be available at
the registration and front desk
about other upcoming bicycle
events, and event organizer
Linda Leeds will be available
all weekend. The next event,
the Highland Bike Fest will be
Dec. 9-11. Call 385-0111 or
stop by the Kenilworth Lodge
at 1610 Lakeview Drive in his-
toric Sebring for information.


For your convenience, Publix stores will be open during regular store hours on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2005.

News-Sun, Friday, September 2, 2005


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Citizens can
give now to the Hurricane
Katrina relief effort, but local
volunteers may have to wait a
bit.
First, support organizations
have to find out what is needed
and where, then they can send
volunteers. "
In some cases, volunteers
will need to be trained. The
American Red Cross typically
doesn't send volunteers directly
to a major disaster until they
have experience dealing with
local disasters - single-family
home fires or hurricane shelters

Katrina has changed that.

Members of Austin's extend-

from the time they learned of
the accident.

Pinellas and Orange counties
are already out or expect to be
out of fuel supply today. State
Education Commissioner John
Winn said about 10 other coun-
ties also had only enough fuel
to last a few days without new
supplies.
In addition to worrying about
the gas supply, many Florida
drivers were faced with the
highest prices in memory.
"How can you begin to make
expenses if you've got to put so
much money into your tank?"
asked Richard Thomas as he
put nearly $60 worth of gas at
$2.85 a gallon in his tank in
Miami.
He had it better than drivers
in Tallahassee, who have seen
prices jump from around $2.60
a gallon Tuesday to around
$3.09 at some stations
Thursday - although prices in
the city varied as much as 40
cents a gallon.
Several stations in the West
Palm Beach-Boca Raton area
were also charging more than
$3 a gallon. In Miami-Dade,
gas prices hovered near the
$3.05 mark.
But for state officials, the
bigger concern wasn't the cost,
it was supply.
In Tallahassee, a few sta-
tions, particularly near
Interstate 10, had run out of gas.
William Woodbery, a clerk at
a Circle K station near I-10 said
the station had been out since
Wednesday night.
"We have no idea when
we're getting more," Woodbery
said.
Officials in Tallahassee were
hoping stations would be quick-
ly resupplied - thousands of
fans are expected to drive into
town for Monday's Florida
State-Miami football game.
Florida is also playing at
home this weekend meaning
others will be driving to
Gainesville.
Labor Day and football game
trips won't need to be canceled
if people conserve gas in other
ways, Bush said.
"We need to also have some
degree of normalcy in our
lives," Bush said.
"But if people are fearful of
what the day after tomorrow
looks like and therefore go out
and make sure that ... every
means by which they can fill up
receptacles with gasoline is
accomplished, then we could
have a problem," Bush said.

Eric Carroll, service delivery

also call 386-4440.
He'll have an orientation ses-
sion at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center. Applications will be
available there, too.
Aside from that, Red Cross is
accepting money. Harriman
said it's easier to buy and ship
items in bulk than to accept,
sort, store and ship other items
that may or may not be needed
right now.
Carroll said donations hit the
$2,000 mark Thursday morn-
ing. Donations have been

Optometrist takes part in InfantSEE program


By PATRICIA B. POND
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING
D r. Valerie Moulds, an
optometrist at Eye
Specialists of Mid-
Florida P.A., is one
of 7,000 optometrists nation-
wide who are participating in
InfantSEE. This is a one-time
eye examination for infants in
their first year, and it is free.
InfantSEE was launched in
June 2005 by the American
Optometric Association, and
Moulds was the only
optometrist in the county to
come on board. Participating
optometrists donate their time
for the examinations, which
Moulds, the mother of two,
feels is critical.
"Little children can't com-
municate what they are seeing
and what they are not seeing,"
she said. "Parents don't think
an early eye exam is necessary.
But it's as important as a phys-
ical or dental examination."
Experts from AOA and
American Public Health
Association agree that visual
development is most dramatic
between six and 12 months of
age.
One in every 10 children is
at risk from an undiagnossed
eye condition, an InfantSEE
publication said. Early detec-
tion can prevent vision impair-
ments.

Dr. Valerie Moulds, optometrist, examines the eyes of her daughter Rowan at the Sebring office of Eye
Specialists of Mid-Florida, P.A. The child's father, Rob Moulds, holds here in his lap throughout the
examination. Dr. Moulds participates in InfantSEE, a one-time eye examination for infants and children.


BabyCentercom, on behalf of
the AOA, reveals that nearly
half of new and expectant.
mothers mistakenly believe
that because a baby's eyes are
changing during their first year,
it is best to wait until the child
is older to have them examined
by an eye care professional.
"A lot of parents are under
the impression that a school
screening takes the place of an
eye exam. It does not," Moulds
stated emphatically.
She explained that a routine


screening, using the standard
20/20 letter chart used by
schools and pediatricians, will
not detect serious eye and
vision problems that may lead
to permanent impairments. A
complete vision assessment is
more comprehensive.
"We look for an intact visual
response," Moulds explained.
"Can the child 'fixate' - focus
both eyes on the object? We
use a light or a hand puppet
and watch their eyes while they
follow it around the room."


Optometrists also look out-
side the eye for any abnormal
growths. They can perform a
dilated eye exam to look at the
condition of the optic nerve
and check for abnormalities of
the retina. They check eye
pressure, looking for congeni-
tal glaucoma and congenital
cataracts.
Misunderstanding
eye disorders
Many people make the mis-
take of saying that a person


who has a crossed or turned
eye (strabismus) has a "lazy
eye" (amblyopia), but these
two conditions are different.
Lazy eye can result from a
constant turn of one eye and
this may be easily spotted. But
amblyopia without a deviating
eye cannot be noticed by either
parents or a pediatrician. Only
an eye doctor familiar with
examining infants and young
children can detect it.
Lazy eye is an eye condition.
noted by reduced vision, but is
not due to any eye disease,
according to information pub-
lished by the Optometrists
Network.
"Lazy eye means the two
eyes are not working together,"
Moulds said. "No matter what
lens I put in front of the eye, I
can't improve the vision. It is
estimated that 3 percent of
children under 6 have some
form of amblyopia or lazy eye.
Amblyopia can be success-
fully treated up to the age of
17, according to research con-
ducted by the National Eye
Institute. Early treatment is
usually simple: glasses, drops,
vision therapy and patching.
Detection and correction
before the age of two offers the
best chance for a cure.
Strabismus, more commonly
known as crossed eyes, is a
condition in which a person
cannot align both eyes simulta-

Japanese tea


Courtesy photo
Ridge Area Arc client Maria Concepcion, of Avon Park, enjoys the decorations made by the art
class for Arc's Japanese Tea. The individuals served by Ridge Area Arc in Avon Park recently had
a Japanese Tea, complete with chop sticks to eat the food provided by the cooking class. The room
and tables were decorated with the many beautiful items created by the art class. At Arc the theme
for the month of August was Japan, and students learned all about their customs, geography, and
food. The theme also was carried out in other classes: the art class made colorful fans, lanterns,
artwork and bamboo dish gardens; and the cooking class made chicken teriyaki and a scrumptious
rice dish. And yes, green tea was served.

No such thing as


a 'weak' storm

For a "weak" storm, Hurricane Katrina packed quite a
wallop. And many South Floridians paid a price for not
taking this storm seriously enough.
Categorized as a tropical storm until just before land-
fall, the hurricane resulted in at least seven deaths. As
many as 1 million people, about one-fourth of Florida
Power & Light Co.'s customer base, arose Friday to
cloudy skies in darkened homes without power.
Swamped roads were littered with stalled cars.
Thousands of people watched helplessly as homes
flooded. Motorists caught in the tempest undoubtedly
wished they had stayed indoors, or gone home earlier.
Millions more suffered through a harried night of wind
gusts and torrential rains regretting they did not put up
shutters or lay sandbags to protect homes.
All this from just a Category 1 storm? Yes, and there-
in lies the source of complacency.
A hurricane is a hurricane, regardless of categoriza-
tion, wind speeds or rainfall projections. They are also
unpredictable, despite the best forecast technology avail-
able to meteorologists.
Many tri-county residents, particularly those in south-
ern Miami-Dade County, felt too reassured by forecast
tracks that pointed Katrina toward Broward and southern
Palm Beach counties. ... Sure enough, as these storms are
apt to do, the hurricane took a nosedive to the southwest
and plowed through their communities.
No one can divert a storm away from South Florida.
But we can all have a hand in making the recovery as
quick and safe as possible.
BOTTOM LINE: Katrina teaches South Florida that
no hurricanes are "weak."

A fee is no more

than a bribe

Editor:
Pertaining to all of the con-
fab over impact fees, first of
all, a fee is no more than a bribe
to get permission to do some-
thing,
Whether it is permission to
build a new home, re-model an
older home, start up a new
business, Or to expand or move
an older business.
It is a bribe to raise more
money to cover up over-spend-
ing by our government leaders.
How many more cute little
cliches, or cute little phrases
can our leaders dream up to
steal more money from the cit-
izens, is beyond imagination.
Once they have over spent
beyond the limits of the impact
fees, what next?

Take care of

our own first

Editor:
Why is it that whenever
America has a catastrophe all
of our allies seem to disappear?
Recently we even sent help
to the Russians when their sub-
marine was stuck. Why doesn't
the rest of the world dig deep
into their own pockets to offer
us financial aid? Why doesn't
the Kuwaitis and other Arab
nations pay us back for saving
their tails so many times?
It is time that we cut them all
off and start taking care of
America. They will need us
next time and when they come
running for handouts we should
say, "Sorry where were you
,when we needed help? At that
time we should simply say,
"Americans take care of
Americans first."
Mr. President: There are
American civilians floating
dead from the hurricane in our
own country. Do the right
thing. Bring our troops home.
Screw the Iraqis. They have
Been screwing us forever.
Americans are dying on our
own ravaged streets from per-
haps the worst natural disaster
ever in our American history.
As I write this letter, I know
your heart must ache. I believe
you have shed many tears and
America weeps with you.

Theie is hope in

this market
Editor:
I appreciate this forum to let
your readers know there is
hope in this tight real estate
market, which is adversely
affecting residents and also
may discourage skilled workers
and professionals from making
Highlands County their place
of work.
Home ownership can be pos-
sible through the federal gov-
ernment's housing loan pro-
grams requiring no down pay-
ment, no mortgage insurance
nor cash reserves. Interest rates
can be as low as one percent,
depending on household
income. Some down payment
is permissible. The loan can be
spread over 33 or 38 years.
Maximum loan limit is
$172,000.
Another housing loan pro-
gram does not have a loan cap;
as long as the household owner
or applicant is within moderate
income. For example, the mod-


In November 2002,
Florida voters over- OPI
whelming approved an
amendment to the Te
Florida Constitution
requiring implementa-
tion of a high quality Voluntary
Pre-kindergarten (VPK) pro-
gram by the 2005 school year
for all four-year-olds whose
parents want them to partici-
pate.
On the heels of fervent advo-
cacy and after passing a low
quality bill in early 2004 that
was subsequently vetoed by
Governor Bush, the Florida
Legislature passed legislation
implementing the state's new
Voluntary Pre-k program during
a special session last December.
Nine months later, the program
has become a reality in for-
profit, non-profit and faith-
based child care centers, family
child care homes and schools
across the state.
After all of the hoopla, how
has implementation actually
gone?
Overall, it has gone surpris-
ingly well. Kudos go out to
early learning coalitions, the
Agency for Workforce
Innovation . (AWI), the
Department of Education and
school-based, faith-based and
for-profit and not-profit
providers who have worked so
diligently to implement the pro-


erate income limit for a house-
hold size of two is $53,350 per
year. The income limit goes
higher as household size
increases and if there is a child
care expense.
These programs are through
my employer, Rural
Development, which is an
agency within the United
States, Department of
Agriculture. This agency has
had a local presence in
Okeechobee for several coun-
ties including Highlands.
Currently, a homebuyer's
loan orientation is held in
Okeechobee ever Wednesday.
In the future, once a site is
located, a separate seminar will
be in Sebring.
For those homebuyers who-
cannot attend the orientation,
they can call (863) 763-3345,
ext. 503, for a pre-qualification
worksheet.
There are other "partners" ini
this effort to provide affordable
homeownership, such as SHIP,
non-profit housing groups,
Florida Non-Profit Coalition,
self-help housing organizations
and county government offi-
cials who can incorporate plans
to encourage developers to set
aside "affordable housing" in
their ventures.
I urge first-time and non
first-time homebuyers to con-
sider Rural Development's
housing loan programs.

implementing a program of this
scale. Hopefully, most of those
"issues" will resolve them-

Perhaps the most exciting
spin-off of the fledgling VPK
program at this time appears to
be a growing awareness among
parents and caregivers that
quality is important and that
they do have options in decid-
ing what early care and educa-
tion environment will be best
for their children. Tens of thou-
sands of parents have made
inquiries of providers, early
learning coalitions and AWI
concerning issues of quality and
child development. This gives
great joy to all who recognize
that the foundation upon which
a child's development and edu-
cation rests is the parent.
The fact that fewer children
have showed up at pre-school
doors has also been a blessing'
in disguise. There are 96,624

Many help with

Kreative Kids'

Editor:
The Highlands Art League
would like to take this time to
thank everyone who made this
year's kids' summer camp a
success.
First, we would like to thank
the Children's Services
Foundation and their Executive
Director, Kevin Roberts, for
their generous monetary dona-
tion. This donation enabled the
Art League to provide scholar-
ships for less fortunate fami-
lies. The donation not only put
smiles on those children's
faces, but also enriched their
lives through art!
Thank you to Highlands
Little Theatre for allowing us to
use the Thakkar Pavilion dur-
ing our drama workshops. We
understand the value of such a
wonderful facility and are so
grateful.
We would also like to thank
Wal-Mart, Publix, Griffin's
Carpet Mart, Sysco Foods,
Porter Paints and all those who
wholeheartedly donated their
time and efforts. We could not
have had such a successful
summer camp if it weren't for
patrons like you!
A big thank you to Amy
Smith, our camp coordinator
this year, for her enthusiastic
attitude in getting the job done.
Thank you to our fabulous
teachers who went above and
beyond making this year spe-
cial for so many children and
the committed volunteers for
their countless hours in assist-
ing the classes.

the program now, about 50,000
fewer than the projected
147,235 children (66 percent of
the state's four-year-olds) used
in legislative estimates. As the
program took shape some had
grave concerns that there would
not be enough providers and
quality teachers to accommo-
date the influx of new students.
As it turns out, the 4,300 VPK
providers have space for
117,000 four-year-olds, about
28,000 more than needed at this
time. While available class-
rooms appear for the most part
to be in, locations that accom-
modate family needs, there are
places in the state where the
capacity does not match the
need. This will have to be
addressed as the program
matures.
Of course, other challenges
remain: Only about 43 percent
of the state's 223,000 four-year-
olds are participating. How do
we expand this opportunity so
more are able to participate?
More importantly, is the pro-
gram serving the children who
need it most? The "universal"
nature of Florida's VPK pro-
gram is greatly valued, but the
fact is that at-risk children ben-
efit more from such early care
and educational programs than
their more nurtured peers. Is the
program serving the greatest
number of at-risk children pbs-


sible and, if not, how can it
serve more?
There is also no assessment
to determine if VPK providers
are doing their jobs. The kinder-
garten screening tool used by
teachers when students enter
kindergarten tells whether or
not the child is ready for school,
it does not indicate if VPK
graduates progressed as they
should have during their time in
the VPK program.
Insufficient funding promises
to plague the program during its
early years, at the least. The pal-
try $2,500 annual per student
allotment provided by the legis-
lature is insufficient to provide
the significant benefits that high
quality VPK has the potential to
provide and that are expected
from the program. It has com-
pelled many providers - who
insist that they cannot provide a
quality program for that amount
of funding - to stay out of it.
Nevertheless, Florida's VPK

Continued from 18A

It is so nice to be in a com-
munity that understands the
importance of art in children's
lives and encourages this
enrichment in all forms. Art
plays a critical role in a child's
growth, both physical and edu-
cational and children benefit
tremendously from having a
creative outlet to express them-
selves.
The Highlands Art League
provides that outlet through
classes, workshops and our
summer camp and strives to
foster art in every child that
enrolls in any of our programs.
This year's summer camp was
a great example and a big suc-
cess! Thank you again to all our
wonderful supporters!

is such a plus
Editor:
The nursing program at
South Florida Community
College is second to none
based on direct experience
from being a graduate from
first the practical, then the asso-
ciate programs accomplished
by 1991.
Dr Mary Ann Fritz directs'


these programs with "boot
camp" operation and draws to
the surface the best from each
student like self respect, hon-
esty with one's self, dedication
to hard work to accomplish set
goals, timeliness and most of
all a belief in oneself that you
and your chosen profession in
nursing can make a positive
influence in this world.
I know that is what I gleaned
from the program. It was the
most difficult years, but well
worth each minute.
SFCC's Dr. Mary Ann Fritz
and the managers and instruc-
tors deserve 'recognition for
their dedication of year after
year of producing the best nurs-
es in the state and the NCLEX
passing rate for licensure from
the state of their students
demonstrate this.
We, as a community take for
granted such "jewels" and
often do not appreciate until we
no longer have people and
services of this caliber here in
Highlands County.
My heartfelt respect and
admiration,

Be careful to 'yield right of way' when its time


While driving
down the road, how
often do we fail to
consider other driv-
ers?
I'm sure that we
have all experienced,
at one time or anoth-
er, that moment when
we pulled out into
traffic only to realize HIGI
that another driver is Ho
upon you before you
know it.
Failure to "yield .P.
right of way" is one
of the major leading factors to
traffic crashes in the state of
Florida.
The state of Florida had
243,294 crashes in 2003. In
1999 there were 9,442,763
licensed drivers compared with
14,788,685 in 2003. The num-
ber of registered vehicles is
climbing just as quickly, from
9,444,964 in 1999 to
14,080,886 in 2003. Please
remember that this substantial
growth is only those
drivers/vehicles that are actual-
ly registered in the state.
Imagine how many others that
are on the roadways and aren't
registered with the state.
With this congestion comes
the need to pay even more
attention while we are driving.
There are several separate
statutes that deal with yielding


HI
FL
F


the right of way to
other drivers.
Common sense and
courtesy are many
times spelled out by
different statutes that
control our required
behavior while driv-
ing.
Whenever you
WAY approach a road from
a side road you must
INE yield the right of way
to the traffic on that
ANE roadway. At intersec-
tions, it is clearly
spelled out how you approach
and how you enter the roadway.
"Right turn - Both the
approach for a right turn and a
right turn shall be made as close
as practicable to the right-hand
curb or edge of the roadway."
"Left turn - The driver of a
vehicle intending to turn left at
any intersection shall approach
the intersection in the extreme
left-hand lane lawfully avail-
able to traffic moving in the
direction of travel of such vehi-
cle, and, after entering the inter-
section, the left turn shall be
made so as to leave the inter-
section in a lane lawfully avail-
able to traffic moving in such
direction upon the roadway
being entered.
"A person riding a bicycle
and intending to turn left in
accordance with this section is


entitled to the full use
of the lane from which
the turn may legally be
made. Whenever practi-
cable the left turn shall
be made in that portion
of the intersection to the
left of the center of the
intersection."
These two turns are
constantly overlooked
by drivers. Remember
that if you make a turn
onto a multi-lane road


you need to be in the lane near-
est to the direction that you are
turning. If you made a right-
hand turn on to U.S. 27 and
then immediately crossed all
three lanes to get into the inside
lane you would be in violation.
People who attempt to
change lanes and are struck by a
vehicle coming up from behind
them have a couple of surprises
headed their way. The first sur-
prise is always the crash, fol-
lowed by the citation for failing
to yield to the vehicle that was
passing them.
Yes, the person who was
coming from behind is consid-
ered to have control of the lane
and statutorily you are required
to give them the right of way.
When you are turning at an
intersection with a turn arrow, it
must be obeyed. If the arrow is
red you are not allowed to turn.
This includes U-turns.
i have had people explain to
me that they didn't enter the
intersection'based on the fact
that they made a U-turn. If you
crossed the white line (stop bar)
you have entered the intersec-
tion.
If you are at an intersection
with no designated turn arrow it
is your responsibility to ensure
that you can safely make the
turn without interfering with the
traffic that is traveling straight.
The median turn area of the
highway should not be occu-
pied by more than one vehicle
at a time. If you haven't noticed
yet, when you pile vehicles
there, all you really accomplish
is blocking someone else's view
and you impede the flow of
traffic.
You are also required to yield
to highway workers or flag per-
sons working in .construction
areas. The next time you see an
oversized load moving down
the highway and it has escort


vehicles you are required to
give them the right of way.
The great state of Florida is
one of the last remaining states
that dictates that you will yield
to funeral processions. This
includes those vehicles in the
procession as they enter inter-
sections in regards of traffic
control devices (traffic lights or
stop signs). This applies to all
of the vehicles in the proces-
sion.
You are also restricted from
joining in the procession.
These violations could cost you
$118.50 and three points would
be assessed against your dri-
ver's license.
Lastly you are required to
yield to emergency vehicles.
This not only applies to those
vehicles (police, fire and ambu-
lance) responding to an emer-
gency call in progress but those
on the side of the road.
When speaking of vehicles
on the side of the roadway that
are covered by this statute,
wreckers were added this year.
It should be noted that it
doesn't matter where the opera-
tor of the emergency vehicle is
standing, e.g. on the far side of
their vehicle. If any emergency
vehicle is on the side of the road
with their lights on you must
either vacate the lane net to
that vehicle or reduce your
speed, by 20 MPH below the
posted speed limit.
S-ven law enforcement offi-
cers have died this year being
struck by approaching vehicular
traffic.
So please remember to drive
defensively and arrive alive.
Let's all work together to keep
the roads safe.

neously. One or both of the eyes
may turn' in, out, up, or down.
Children with strabismus may
initially have double vision.
Gradually, the brain will com-
penste by disregarding the
image of one eye.
"If one eye is not working
properly, the brain can 'turn it
off' and the eye will stop devel-
oping neurologically," Moulds
explained.
It is estimated that up to 5
percent of all children have
some type or degree of strabis-
mus. Unlike amblyopia, strabis-
mus is responsive to treatments
at all ages.
Another reason why early
infant and pre-school eye
exams are so necessary is that
nearsightedness can be over-
looked in very young children.
Moulds says that, typically,
"a parent will bring a child to
me and say 'She is not having
any problems,' but the parent
has no way to tell if the child is
nearsighted."
Moulds explains that little
children do a lot of work "up
close" - they are not aware of
what distance sight should be.
"They can't communicate what
they can't see."
Although infants cannot


respond verbally, members of
the AOA believe that the first
year of life is an ideal time to
conduct an extensive eye
assessment. Generally children
at this age do not yet fear doctor
visits and find the exam pain-
less and often enjoyable.
Typically, infants sit on their
parent's lap while the
optometrist uses lights and
other hand held objects to
check that their eyes are work-
ing together and that there are
no other conditions that will
impede proper vision develop-
ment. The doctor may also use
drops or a spray to dilate the
child's pupils to view the retina
and ensure the health of the
eyes.
"The world of children is
seen through their eyes and if
they are not seeing correctly,
their whole world is skewed,"
Dr. Moulds said.

2005 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible retains image, boasts new look


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
The flip-up headlamps are gone. But
there's still no mistaking the Chevrolet
Corvette.
One of America's most recognized
and long-lived sports cars, the Corvette debuted
a sixth-generation, more-sophisticated model for
2005.
With a fresh, streamlined look, this Corvette
is the first since 1962 with exposed headlights.
It's also 5 inches shorter and 1 inch narrower
than its predecessor and weighs a bit less.
A new, 400-horsepower V8 makes this the
first production Corvette capable of going 186
miles an hour.
And there are high-tech features now such as
keyless access that lets a driver enter and start
the car without using a traditional key. In fact,
the car is turned on and off with the push of a
button. An easy, power-operated and completely
lined soft top is a $1,995 option for the 2005
model.
Starting manufacturer's suggested retail price,
including destination charge, is $44,510 for a
2005 Corvette coupe and $52,245 for a convert-
ible, which was the test car.
Competitors include the 2005 Dodge Viper
SRT-10 convertible, which starts at $85,745,
and the 2005 Chrysler Crossfire convertible,
which starts at $35,110. t
Dating to 1953, the Corvette has blended a
bold, uniquely American appearance with a two-
seat sporty image.
The car also is known for American-style
power. Indeed, Chevrolet's first small-block V8
was introduced in Corvettes in 1955, and
Corvettes have a long racing heritage.
The 2005 Corvette, also known as the C6 by
aficionados to denote it's the sixth-generation
model, has a showy, streamlined, aerodynamic
body that, like its predecessors, sits low to the
ground.
In fact, I looked up at passengers inside a
Chrysler PT Cruiser that was in the lane next to
me.
I couldn't see much of the traffic in front of
me, because so many vehicles on the roads
today are taller than the 4-foot-tall Corvette. For

example, a Cadillac Escalade stands 6.1 feet tall.
But the agility of the new Corvette, plus
ample power, meant I didn't have to stay behind
the traffic too long.
The new engine - a 6-liter overhead valve
V8 - rumbled to life the second the ignition
fired. It's a low, almost sinister sound that had
me fighting the urge to gun the engine a few
times.
Horsepower is up from last year's 350, while
torque has risen to 400 foot-pounds at 4,400
rpm. Chevy officials estimate a 0-to-60-mph
time of 4.2 seconds, which is in the range of
many well-known sports cars.
The test Corvette had a four-speed automatic
transmission, which made driving in rush-hour
traffic less of a chore than the six-speed manual
would.
But I still found myself managing the
Corvette's power carefully, because it was very
easy to get up on the bumper of the car ahead,
with just a nudge of the gas pedal. It also was
easy to get up over the speed limit and.not real-
ize it.
The power was so much at the ready, it didn't
take much to push my head back into the head
4


restraint.
And always there was the wonderfully rich-
sounding V8. Indeed, some pedestrians turned to
look at what kind of muscle car was nearby.
Dodge's Viper SRT-10 convertible has a
deep, expressive engine note, too, but it's from a
8.3-liter V10 with 500 horsepower and 525 foot-
pounds of torque at 4,200 rpm.
The Crossfire's top engine is a less-throaty
and less-powerful, 215-horsepower, 3.2-liter V6
with 229 foot-pounds of torque at 3,000 rpm.
Thankfully, the Corvette's fuel economy isn't
as bad as I had feared. The government rating is
18 miles a gallon in city driving and 26 mpg on
the highway. And during the test drive, which
had a majority of highway miles, I averaged
24.9 mpg.
This compares with the Viper's government
rating of 12/20 mpg and the Crossfire's 21/28
mpg.
The new Corvette body structure, even on the
convertible tester, had a rigid, solid feel. I didn't
notice cowl shake, for example, on the car.
Cowl shake, or the vibration or shaking of the
windshield glass and supports, can be a factor in
some convertibles.


The Corvette moved through curves and
mountain twisties with an ease that I don't recall
from earlier models. The low car stuck closely
to the pavement, with no sense of tippiness or
unsettling weight shifts.
The longer I drove, the more I realized the
Corvette provides fun, comfortable driving on
challenging roads. Brakes were strong, too.
The speed-sensitive, magnetic power-assisted,
rack-and-pinion steering had a precise feel, even
if it wasn't quite as crisp as I had expected for a
powerful sports car.
Traction control, side airbags, tire pressure
monitor and an Active Handling safety handling
system are standard features.
I appreciated the optional head-up display that
projected my speed and other pertinent informa-
tion onto the lower part of the driver windshield.
This reduced my need to scour the closely
grouped gauges below.
Seats are low to the floor, so driver and pas-
senger must drop down into them. They provide
good support, though large people may want to
test the comfort of the form-fitting buckets.
Storage space is still a drawback, as it has
been in earlier Corvettes.
Cargo room under the large rear window is
just 5 cubic feet with the top down, 11 cubic
feet with the top up, for example. And people
have to hoist items up and over the rather high-
sitting rear deck lid, which was at waist height
on my 5-foot-4 frame.
Map pockets on the two large doois also are
shallow, and I feared each time I opened the
Corvette doors that items I had in the pockets
would fall out.
The center console's storage spot is shallow,
too.
Chevrolet officials are looking for about
33,000 sales of Corvette convertibles and coupes
annually. This would be an increase from the
30,856 sold in calendar 2004.
Through June this year, Corvette sales totaled
16,634, or right on pace with the forecast.
The vast majority of Corvette convertible
buyers are men, and two-thirds are married,
according to marketing research.

Battered men

should seek help
Society minimizes the pain
and suffering of men who are
victims of domestic violence.
Yet statistics show that every
37.8 seconds a man in the
United States falls victim to
domestic violence. While
there are more than 4,000
domestic violence programs
in this country, men have
limited access to the pro-
grams provided.
Domestic violence is a
crime. Therefore, regardless
of sex, ignoring the problem
will not eliminate it. A bat-
tered man is a silent joke
among peers. Here are some
reasons why battered men
remain quiet:
* Battered men often
receive unwanted jewelry
such as handcuffs.
* Battered men are often
often provided with a chauf-
feur "a cop."
StBattered men are often
sent to the bar, "prison bars."
* Battered men are prema-
turely sent to the nicely mani-
cured lawns adorned with
beautiful flowers, "a grave."
According to Jan Brown,
executive director and
founder of the Domestic
Abuse Helpline for Men,
whether the abused person is
male or female, the solution
is to get out of an abusive sit-
uation and seek help.
A National Violence
Against Women Survey,
women who batter have a
greater ability to use the sys-
tem to their advantage.
"Systematic abuse can occur
wheri an abusive woman
threatened her intimate part-
ner by using the courts as a
pioy to keep the father from
seeing his child/children.
Philip Cook, author of the
book "Abused Men: The
Hidden Side of Domestic
Violence," also may be able
to use the system to their
advantage in that they are
less likely to be arrested if
police are called as a result of
domestic dispute.
The National Domestic
Violence Center advises men
* in volatile relationship to do
the following:
0 Never allow yourself to
be provoked into any kind of
retaliation. If there is a heated
argument, do it in a room
with two doors, so that you
can leave. It is said that a
woman will block the door so
that the man will forcibly
move her; thus causing him
to be arrested.
0 Take a photograph of
the injury. When police arrive
give them a report.
0 Work with an advocate
so that if there is a custody
dispute, you can ask for tem-
porary custody.
0 Get counseling that will
provide healing.
1 Share your story with
family members and friends
who will support you.
Skeptics will never under-
stand until they go through
the same situation.
Men in domestic violent
relationship can call The
National Domestic Violence
Helpline for men at (877)
643-1120 (PIN /ACCESS
code 0757). Hearing impaired
can call (800) 787-3224.
Women can call (800) 799-
7233. For more details, go to

PurPle


Heart

Wounded bond together,


sLhare a comnt7
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
- .. News-Sun corresondert
T- he Purple Heart is the first and
oldest American award made
specifically for the common sol-
Sdier.
It was initially created and
designed as the Badge of Military Merit by
General George Washington. It was the
S "figure of a heart in purple cloth or silk,
edged with narrow lace or binding." Why
purple silk? During the Roman Empire.
silk was sold for its weight in gold. And
S purple (natural indigo) is the oldest dye
known to man. The oldest historic texts
S speak of it. It is a dye known to all cultures
of the world. Purple is known as the color
of royalty.
During the Revolutionary War there
were only three known recipients of the
award, and their names and regiment were
inscribed in a Book of Merit: SSgt. Elijah
Churchill, William Brown and Daniel
Bissell Jr.
After 150 years, General Douglas
MacArthur had a new medal issued on the
bicentennial of George Washington's birth.
Miss Elizabeth Will, in the Office of the
Quartermaster General, created the design
from guidelines provided her. The only dif-
ference in her design is that the profile of
Washington appears where a sprig was
located on the previous Purple Heart. John
_ R. Sinnick of the Philadelphia Mint made
the plaster model in 1931, and the War
Department announced the new award on
Feb. 22, 1932.
What Washington wrote in his orderly
book on Aug. 7, 1782, still stands today:
"The road to glory in a patriot army and a
free country is thus open to all. This order
is also to have retrospect to the earliest
stages of the war, and to be considered a

711 ground
permanent one."
The Purple Heart is specifi-
cally a combat decora-
tion. The Military
Order of the
Purple Heart
was formed
in 1932. It's
composed
exclusively
of Purple
Heart
recipients,
and it is the
only veter-
ans service
organiza-
tion com-
prised
strictly of
"combat"
veterans.
Here are some profiles on local members
of the MOPH and their accounts of the
wars they fought:

Ferdinand (Fred) Arbelo
All of the members of Military Order of
the Purple Heart Chapter 601 are from
World War II, Korea and Vietnam. And all
of the armed forces are represented and
entitled to join.
'The fee is $5, and we have 34 members
who meet once a month for lunch at the
Candlelight Restaurant in Sebring. All of
these men are 'Number One.' We're all
brothers. Our chapter's most recent project
is to place 'Purple Heart Highway' signs.
Jeb Bush said 'yes' and they will be visible
from Avon Park to Palmdale," said Fred
Arbelo. senior vice commander who lives
in Lake Placid.
"I was born and raised in New York
City, and I was 21 when I was wounded in
Korea in 1952. We were at "Old Baldy' in
Korea. All of us marines were forging an
assault near Bunker Hill. Then there was
an explosion. But we just kept going. I
thought I had stepped into some water, but
that was my blood in my boots. I didn't
realize the shrapnel got me in the forehead
and legs. Then they battle dressed me in
the field," Arbelo said.
Suddenly Arbelo has to stop and change
this too emotional subject. He goes on to
say he served four years, later became a
special education teacher and then retired.
"After my wife passed, I got the finest
girl in the world - Linda. She's been my
wife for 38 years. We need the young guys.
Our older men say they can't drive at
night, and the young ones have to work.
That's why we meet the first Saturday of
the month at noon for lunch at the
Candlelight." Arbelo said.

Harry Marsh
The newest member to MOPH chapter
601 is Harry Marsh of Sebring. He lived in
Sunrise for 30 years, retiring as command-
er with the Fort Lauderdale police, and


then moving here last March. He served 10
years with the Army in Vietnam from
1965-1975. On March 1968, they were
advancing to Phu Bi in the northern
Province of Vietnam. Marsh served with
the first Cavalry, 8th Engineering
Batalion, and they were going north to
replace marines who'd been in place there
for one year.
"We took over the forward base that
supported the infantry. The TET offensive
had ended in February and then we were
shelled for one month with 82mm mortar.
We took casualties. I got shrap metal in my
back that was in too serious a position to
operate on. The shrapnel in my legs and
Swarms went into my bone marrow," Marsh
said.
He was transported to a Mash unit.

Monument honors all veterans

SEBRING - Veterans
. Beach, located on the west side
of Lake Jackson, was founded
during World War H to honor
veterans and the Military Order
of the Purple Heart Chapter 601
bought and placed a monument
there.
"We got permission. The city
cooperated and donated man-
hours, the flag, a light and pole.
Now we use it for our dedication
ceremonies," said the Rev. Gene
Snidow, commander of the
MOPH.
The monument was made in


Maine out of India red granite,
and is dedicated to all men and
women wounded in wars fought
by the United States. The
inscription reads: ""My stone is
red for the blood they shed. The
medal I bear is my country's
way to show they care. If I could
be seen by all mankind, maybe
peace will come in my lifetime."
The next meeting of the
Military Order of the Purple
Heart will be Sept. 3 at the
Candlelight Restaurant, 5223
Sun 'N Lake Blvd. A dedication
for the Purple Heart highway
signs will be at 9 a.m. Sept. 10 at


Veterans Beach in Sebring. For

DIVERSIONS



Geisha, country stars, Gromit and


Kong lead Hollywood's fall roster


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer
LOS ANGELES - Hollywood's long,
dreary summer finally is over. Now it's on
to the good stuff.
And it better be good, if film studios
hope to salvage what's shaping up as the
worst year for movie attendance since the
late 1990s.
After a summer season that left audi-
ences generally uninterested, the fall and
holiday lineup offers the promise of fresh
films with an exotic cast of characters that
includes country music legends, a great
ape, teen wizards and a Japanese geisha.
The long-awaited adaptation of the best
seller "Memoirs of a Geisha," director Rob
Marshall's follow-up to "Chicago," stars
Ziyi Zhang as a poor Japanese girl who
becomes a geisha goddess.
Many people define "geisha" as a high-
end prostitute, but Zhang discovered a rich
artistic and social fabric behind the geisha
culture.
"From my opinion, 'geisha' means a
woman skilled in the arts. Like dancing,
singing and playing musical instruments,"
said Zhang, making her first English-lan-
guage movie after such Chinese martial-
arts hits as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden
Dragon" and "Hero."
"They are also skilled in the art of con-
versation," said Zhang, who underwent two
months of geisha "boot camp" to learn
complicated dances, the proper way to wear
kimonos and the art of pouring tea.
Other big films include Steven
Spielberg's "Munich," a thriller about the
slaying of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972
Olympics; "All the King's Men,". starring
Sean Penn as the Southern political boss of
Robert Penn Warren's classic novel;
"Jarhead," a Gulf War tale with Jake
Gyllenhaal and Jamie Foxx; "Tim Burton's
Corpse Bride," an animated yam featuring
the voices of Johnny Depp and Helena
Bonham Carter; "The New. World,"
Terrence Malick's epic set in colonial
America with Colin Farrell; and
"Elizabethtown," Cameron Crowe's
romance starring Kirsten Dunst and
Orlando Bloom.
Also, "The Weather Man," with Nicolas
Cage as a TV forecaster who has a stormy
personal life; "Get Rich-or Die Tryin',"
starring 50 Cent as a street hood aiming for
a rap-music career; "Oliver Twist," Roman
Polanski's fresh take on the Charles
Dickens orphan-boy classic, featuring Ben
Kingsley; the animated "Wallace &
Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit," the
big-screen debut of TV's cheese-loving Brit
and his faithful dog; and "In Her Shoes," a
sister-act tale from director Curtis Hanson
("Wonder Boys," "L.A. Confidential").
"In Her Shoes" follows two sisters, one a
knockout (Cameron Diaz) who has leeched
all her life off her workaholic sibling (Toni
Collette), and the grandma (Shirley
MacLaine) who helps them reconnect after
a bitter estrangement.
"My character, she's kind of gotten away
with her looks, gotten away with her ability
to charm people and find her way without
having to work," Diaz said. "And she's
kind of coming to the end of that rope, as
well as having nothing to fall back on, hav-
ing bitten the hand that's always fed her."
Science-fiction and fantasy are shaping
up as some of the season's biggest attrac-
tions, led by "The Lord of the Rings" mas-
termind Peter Jackson's new take on "King
Kong," starring Naomi Watts as the beauty
who steals the heart of the gigantic primate.
The fourth "Harry Potter" tale casts the
young hero (Daniel Radcliffe) into an inter-
national wizardry competition that leads
him to another showdown with dark sorcer-

released this fall.


er Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).
The British fantasy franchise gets its first
English director in Mike Newell ("Four
Weddings and a Funeral"). For all the mag-
ical trappings of "Harry Potter," Newell
enjoyed injecting a sense of his own class-
room days into Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry.
"Aside from everything else, these are
school stories," Newell said. "In a middle-
of-the-road English education, the teachers
are embattled, the school is a very kind of
anarchic place and a very funny place, as
well. Where two sets of people - one of
which is becoming adults and one of which
is trying to avoid going back to becoming
children - clash.
"The anarchy of youth, it is really rich
stuff. I loved that. I loved doing the school
side of it."
Hollywood's current love affair for fan-
tasy continues with "The Lion, the Witch
and the Wardrobe," adapted from C.S.
Lewis' "Chronicles of Namia" series.
The film, whose cast includes Tilda
Swinton and Jim Broadbent, follows the
adventures of four English children in
World War II who battle an evil witch
enslaving a magical land of giants, talking
animals and centaurs.
"Narnia" director Andrew Adamson (the
"Shrek" movies) figures the recent surge in
fantastical stories has something to do with
the real-world stories audiences see all the
time on TV and on the big screen.
"There has been an awfully lot of reality
programming in the last 10 years and natu-
ral-disaster movies. I do think there's some-
what of a backlash," Adamson said.
"People do want to be taken to new worlds.
They're kind of tired of this one and want
to go, somewhere where they can let their
imagination run free a little bit."
Fall's fantasyscape also includes the
video-game adaptation "Doom," starring
The Rock as part of a commando force tak-
ing on creatures from another realm on
Mars; and "Serenity," a sci-fi adventure
whose behind-the-scenes story is a drama


unto itself.
After scoring with the TV version of
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Joss Whedon
created a smart, funny show called
"Firefly," about misfits living on the edge
of the law aboard the rickety space ship
Serenity 500 years in the future.
"Firefly" lasted only 14 episodes but its
cult audience kept interest alive. Now
Whedon has directed the big-screen contin-
uation "Serenity," reuniting the "Firefly"
cast.
"I took the overreaching arc I was head-
ed toward in the TV show and made that the
plot of the movie," Whedon said. "I had to
jettison or streamline plenty of things. It's
two totally different mediums, and you've
got tc respect that. A TV show can kind of
meander its way along and fifid a little
piece of something for everybody. A movie
is more about the momentum of the main
story."
Sarah Jessica Parker also returns to the
big screen in "The Family Stone." After her
TV series "Sex and the City," Parker is on
familiar turf as a Manhattan woman in love,
though her character is the flipside of
Carrie Bradshaw. Parker plays a career
woman who makes a terrible impression on
her fiance's relatives when meeting them
for the first time.
Unlike loose and lively Carrie, Parker's
character is a tightly wound woman who "is
really at a loss to navigate basic interactions
that so many of us feel confident about,"
the actress said. "So many people feel fair-
ly comfortable around new people. They
can figure out a room or say something
inappropriate then navigate back from it.
She doesn't have those skills."
Also trying something different are
Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon as
Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash in direc-
tor James Mangold's "Walk the Line," a
portrait of the early years of the country star
who died in 2003.
"I'm not a singer by any means," said
Phoenix, who did his own singing (as did

Invitation sends wrong message


Dear Abby: I'm confused. My
husband and I received the fol- -
lowing invitation in the mail .'
today:
"We Are Having an
Anniversary Dinner for
'BYRON AND EDITH'
"(Sorry, you're not invited!)
"Instead, we would like you to
send an anniversary card post-
marked by Sept. 3. The card will DEAR
be given to Byron and Edith at
the dinner to add to the surprise." Jeanne
Abby, we weren't the only
ones who got an "invitation" like
this. Have you ever heard of anything like
this? Is this something new? I think the
people who got these invitations were even
more surprised than Byron and Edith will
be. - Now I've Seen Everything in Ohio
Dear Seen Everything: No, this is not
something new. Social blunders have been
happening for years, and this is one of
them. How much more diplomatic it would
have been had the request been phrased
something like this:
"Dear Mr. and Mrs. 'Seen': In honor of
Byron and Edith's anniversary, we 'kids'
are planning an intimate family gathering.
Because you have been treasured friends
for so long, we wonder if you would con-
tribute to a 'memory book' we are assem-
bling for them as an added surprise. It need
not be long or elaborate - just an experi-

ence you have shared with Byron
and Edith that was significant.
Please send it before Sept. 3.
Thanks in advance. - Daughter
'Julie'"
Dear Abby: I'm not some
young "chiquita." I'm a mature
woman, in my 50s. My live-in,
"Eli," and I have been together
for six years. We were happy, but
over the last few months my man
has become irritable and lethar-
gic.
I did some snooping and dis-


covered that Eli is up to his neck
in credit card debt. His job isn't paying well
now, but he continues to live as if his
income hasn't dried up. He can't seem to
accept that he can no longer afford special
gifts for himself, his adult children and me.
Should I tell Eli I know he's paying an
ungodly amount of interest and can't pay
off his credit cards, or let him continue to
drown in debt? I'm financially able to help
him, but I don't know how to offer, because
Eli won't share his need for it. Even if I did,
I wouldn't know what to expect in return if
I made the offer. Please tell me what to do.
- Concerned for Eli in Kansas
Dear Concerned: Eli's irritability and
lethargy could be depression related to his
credit worries. Or it could be something
else. Try to coax him to talk about what
"might" be causing it, and suggest the two


of you consult his doctor to be sure there's
nothing physically wrong.
If you can't get him to open up, you may
have to admit you know about his money
problem. However, do not offer to bail him
out. Instead, urge him to solve his problem
by making an appointment with a credit
counselor.
You can help him to find a reputable
credit counseling firm by checking with the
Better Business Bureau for the debt man-
.agement companies he's considering. Also,
be sure to ask if the company is a member
of the National Foundation for Credit
Counseling or the Association of
Independent Consumer Credit Counseling
Agencies. Both of these groups impose
"best practices" standards on their mem-
bers. This will prevent your partner from
being exploited.

Highlights of film lineup for fall FALL


Associated Press
LOS ANGELES -
Highlights of the fall film slate.
Release dates are subject to
change, and some films will
play in limited release.

September:
"Flightplan": A widow
(Jodie Foster) insists her 6-
year-old daughter vanished on a
trans-Atlantic flight - all evi-
dence to the contrary.
"Tim Burton's Corpse
Bride": A man is sucked into
the underworld to wed a dead
chick. The animated flick fea-
tures the voices of Johnny Depp
and Helena Bonham Carter.

October:
"Good Night and Good
Luck": George Clooney directs
and co-stars in the story of
newsman Edward R. Murrow
(David Strathaim) as he battles
the communist witch hunt.
"Kiss Kiss, Bang, Bang":
Robbery gone awry gives a
thief (Robert Downey Jr.) a
movie audition and a lesson in
sleuthing with a detective (Val
Kilmer).
"Shopgirl": A Saks clerk
(Claire Danes) is wooed by an
older man (Steve Martin) and a
younger suitor (Jason
Schwartzman). Based on
Martin's novella.
"Wallace &S Gromit: The
Curse of the Were-Rabbit":
Britain's favorite cheese-lover
and his loyal dog square off


against a monster bunny in this
clay-animated comedy.

November:
"Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire": A sorcery
competition puts wiz kid Harry
(Daniel Radcliffe) in the clutch-
es of dark lord Voldemort
(Ralph Fiennes).
"The Ice Harvest": Yuletide
turns dicey for an embezzler
(John Cusack) stuck in Wichita
on Christmas Eve. Billy Bob
Thornton co-stars, Harold
Ramis directs.

December:
"King Kong": A small-town
ape goes to the big city and
makes a spectacle of himself in
Peter Jackson's update of the
1930s classic. With Naomi
Watts, Jack Black and Adrien
Brody.
"The Libertine": Johnny
Depp lives out the wanton life
of the scandalous 17th century
Earl of Rochester. With John
Malkovich and Samantha
Morton.
"Match Point": Woody
Allen spins a drama of an Irish
tennis, pro (Jonathan Rhys-
Meyers) whose cozy life is
jeopardized by a fling with an
actress (Scarlett Johansson).
"Memoirs of a Geisha": A
poor Japanese girl (Ziyi Zhang)
rises to the top of the geisha
profession in an adaptation of
the best-selling novel.


Continued from 2C
Witherspoon). "If it was a fic-
tional character where it was a
made-up voice, it might have
been harder. But I had a specif-
ic voice to go after, so I had to
work specific muscles and real-
ly work at hitting certain notes.
It was nice to have a recogniza-
ble voice as a goal."
Also on the musical front:
"Rent," director Chris
Columbus' follow-up after
making the first two "Harry
Potter" flicks; and "The
Producers," Susan Stroman's
adaptation of Mel Brooks'
Broadway show that won a
record 12 Tonys. Nathan Lane
and Matthew Broderick reprise
their roles.
Charlize Theron and Keira
Knightley each have two wildly
different films coming. Both
actresses step into full action
mode, Theron with "Aeon
Flux," adapted from the animat-
ed sci-fi TV show, Knightley
with "Domino," a casino-heist
caper inspired by the real-life
story of actor Laurence
Harvey's daughter, who quit her
modeling career to become a
bounty hunter.
"It's one of those things you
hear about and think, 'God, this
is an absolutely insane story.
It's so crazy it has to be true,"'
said Knightley, noting that
while Domino Harvey's career
switch is true, the casino heist is


make-believe. "She's an amaz-
ing woman to turn her back on
everything that certainly we in
today's society would think she
could want."
Knightlcy also headlines the
18th century period piece
"Pride & Prejudice," a new
adaptation of Jane Austen's
classic about love, marriage and
Britain's rigid social-class
structure.
Theron also stars in "North
Country," a drama about a sin-
gle mother who takes ground-
breaking legal action over sexu-
al harassment by co-workers at
a Minnesota mining company
in 1989.
"If you were a single monm,
there's no way to support your-


self and your kids by working
in a hair salon," Theron said.
"It's about a woman who
decides to go and do what was
considered a man's job, but was
treated quite horribly for it and
decides she has to fight for her
rights when everyone thinks she
should just shut up and lake it."
Steve Martin also has a
twofer season with "Cheaper
By the Dozen 2," reprising his
role from the 2003 family hit as
patriarch of a family of 12'kids,
and "Shopgirl," adapted from
his short novel.
"Shopgirl" stars Claire
Danes as a Saks clerk wooed by
a rich older man (Martin) and a
younger guy (Jason
Schwartzman). The story origi-


nated with Martin's long-held
interest in how people go about
looking for love.
"There was a time in my life
when I was very interested in
relationship psychology,"
Martin said. "Relationships
end, but they don't end your
life. But people do often spend-
ing more time finding out about
failed relationships than finding
successful ones."
Though he had not envi-
sioned any movie prospects
when he wrote the book, Martin
said once he had adapted it into
a screenplay, he felt should go
ahead and act in the film, as
well.
"I would have felt a little
funny if another actor was play-
ing this role," Martin said.

Christians reflect the image of God


Children often
inherit the facial
characteristics and
copy the mannerism
of their parents.
"He's the exact
image of'his father,"
people will then say.
Or the comment will
be made, "She
sounds just like her
mother." In addition,
children often like to
imitate their parents.
When playing they
will dress up like dad
or mom. They will


I.'-*




A MOMENT'
WITH GOD
Rev. Richard
Fyffe


act out the role of father in the
office or mother in the kitchen.
We Christians are the chil-
dren of God through faith in
Christ Jesus. In his grace and
mercy God has adopted us into
his family. As such we should
always strive to reveal God-like
attitudes and Christ-like behav-
ior. Of course, because of our
sinful flesh, we never will
achieve perfection in this life.
Yet through the power of the
Holy Spirit working through
the gospel, our light will shine
forth more and more. People
will know whose sons and
daughters we are.


In Matthew 14:13-
14, it is recorded:
"When Jesus heard
what had happened,
he withdrew by boat
privately to a solitary
place. Hearing of
this, the crowds fol-
lowed him on foot
from the towns.
When Jesus landed
and saw a large
crowd, he had com-
passion on them and
healed their sick."
This reflects on of
Christ's outstanding


characteristics, one which we,
as his disciples, will want to
reflect.
The incident occurred shortly
after Jesus had heard about the
death of John the Baptist. When
Jesus left for a deserted place
where he could be alone and
rest, a large multitude followed.
Many of them were sick and
suffering from various afflic-
tions. On seeing them, the
Savior was moved with com-
passion. A loving concern and
genuine tenderness filled his
heart. He was moved to help
them and proceeded to do so
with his miraculous healing.


In our present day we too
encounter the poor, the sick, the
needy and the lonely. It is com-
paratively easy for us to ignore
them. We are inclined to think,
"That's none of my business!"
But compassion is .our busi-
ness! Christ made it his busi-
ness and concern, and we are
his disciples. It is true that Jesus
did not instruct us to perform
miracles of healing as he did.
But he everywhere urges us to
reflect his compassion by deeds
of kindness and acts of love. We
can give of our time, our
money, ourselves, to lessen the
suffering of others.
Above all, we can help meet
the greatest need of our fellow
.men by telling the of Christ. In
doing this we are sowing the
seeds for the greatest miracle of
all. Pray to God thathe would
fill all of us with the compas-
sion of him who first had com-
passion on us.

"They X-rayed and treated
the nerve damage to my left
arm, and sent me to Japan for
three weeks. I was near the end
of my tour of duty, and they
sent me on to Fort Gordon, Ga.
(Army Hospital) for seven
months. I was Sgt E5, and not
married then," Marsh said.
Although he did marry in
1982, he said they have never
talked about the war.
"When I hurt, I go to the VA
(Veterans Administration). Now
as I'm getting older, I have
nerve problems and twitching.
Whenever there's a change in
the weather like an impending
storm, it really causes me sharp
pain. We were also exposed to
Agent Orange, and they say
that's why I now have dia-
betes," Marsh said.
Seven years ago he read a
magazine article about MOPH.
He filled out the application,
sending $5 and his notarized
DD214 (discharge). He first
joined the Broward County
chapter, and then transferred

"We need younger blood, but
it's especially hard to get the
Nam vets to take part in
MOPH. The media did such a
hatchet job on us back then. I
didn't even wear my uniform
when I got back. But I got on
with my life and never looked
back. In our club, 80 percent of
the men are World War II vets.
So many of those men are dying
off. They fought a real war and
I believe it's why we enjoy our
freedom today," Marsh said.

Rev, (.Ge S-nlIdo,
Gene Snidow served in
World War II. He was 18, from
West Virginia, and had never
been away from home. He was
in the Army and trained at Fort

Holland when German artillery
shells came in. I'm totally dis-
abled. I got hit in my legs and
back, my right foot, and my
head. I can't take MRIs because
of the metal in me. I have a
limp, but other than that you'd
never know," Snidow said.
"We moved to Hollywood,
Florida in 1963. I was actually
sent here to die. The doctor told
my wife I might live three years
if I got out of the cold climate. I
have a blood disease and when
it's cold, gangrene can set in.
It's Reynaud disease. Jewish
women have it. And I'm nei-
ther. Maybe it was from trans-
fusi6ns," Snidow said.
Retiring after 30 years in

Heart recipients. But we're all
the same. None of us consider
ourselves heroes. We just had a
job to do."
Snidow said their wives took
care of them once they returned
h o m e
"All our wives have become
nurses to us. And they've
become proficient at it. I've had
11 major surgeries. Most wives
don't complain because they've
been through trauma too. They
have to live with disabled hus-
band who experience pain the
rest of their lives. The wives
attend our meetings also. They
hear our problems when we
share. One man had been in the
hospital for four years. There's
a special camaraderie of all
these men who've shed blood
for our country. We all hurt
whenever even one of our guys
hurts. That's our bond," Snidow
said.

split meet
By CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID -
Beating your county rival
is gratifying, but bettering
your foundation for the
future is even sweeter.
Sebring and host Lake
Placid each tasted victory,
taking home the boys and
girls titles, respectively,
from a three-team meet
with Haven Christian on
Thursday, but more impor-
tantly, both exited feeling
progress had been made
toward the district and
regional events at the end
of the year.
"I was very proud of the
girls. We were wonderful.
Their times are dropping
(and) they're starting to
have a little bit more self-
confidence in themselves,"
Sebring coach Pat Caton
said. "They have to think to
themselves that they can do
it. So many of them, I
think, lack the self-confi-
dence right now, but that's
building."
Ashley Boyce, in the
200-yard freestyle, and
100-butterfly swimmer
Leeza Freeland came away
with individual wins for the
Lady Blue Streaks, as did
freshman diver Katie
Ramsey.
"I didn't know what to
expect when I got here, so
it just depended on the
other girls. I compete
against and how well I
could push myself today,"
said Ramsey, who scored
the first individual win of
her career.
"Katie is awesome,"
Sebring dive coach James
Dion said. "I think now that
she has the taste of winning
that she'll want to be better
even. more."
Conversely, Lake Placid
junior David Moore
impressed on the boys side,
swimming'a 24.12-second
50-yardfreestyle for a vic-
tory, and a 22.09 split in the
200-yard relay as he chases
down the school mark.
"He did better than I
anticipated him doing, and
he's going to break that
record," Lake Placid coach
Cindy Rivers said.
Rivers was just as
pleased with her girls team,
pointing specifically to
Danielle Rivers, Robyn
Creel, Maggie Gismondi
and Lacae Lightsey, all of
whom were on the 200-
yard medley relay team
that finished less than two
seconds back of the win-
ners from Sebring.
"I was very proud of the
girls, the way they swam.
They did an, excellent job,"
the Lake Placid coach said.
"Sebring has a great team.
They have a lot of num-
bers, and it's hard to com-
pete with a lot of numbers."
While Rivers said the
allowance of three com-
petitors or relay teams in
each event benefited her
team, Caton instead
believes that provision was

Lady Devils knock off


Hardee for first win


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - It was
bound to happen at any
minute.
Frustrated and fed up after
three losses filled with
almost and nearly, the Lady
Devils of Avon Park finally
busted through with their first
win of the season against the
also winless Hardee Lady
Wildcats Friday night, 25-16,
25-21, 17-25, 25-20.
"This lets them know that
they can win," head coach
Christie Hipps said after the
game. "I guess
they wanted it 'This le

ing to win, Win. I g

on top in the
end." CHR
The match
served as a
confidence
booster more than anything,
said team captain Vania
Walters.
"It's good to win. We're
under a lot of pressure at
school not winning any games
yet but maybe the first win
will ignite the team," she said.
"We still have a lot to work
on, but this should give us
confidence and we'll give
some other teams some trou-
ble."
The Lady Devils jumped
ahead winning the first two
games of the match, getting
five aces in the second, but


were finally faced with some-
what of a test when Hardee
reeled off an 8-3 run in the
third game to apply a little
pressure. That led to a 25-17
win for the visitors to avoid a
sweep and, at the least, save
face.
Apparently a little pressure
was all Avon Park needed to
catch fire. Senior Cori
Murphy nearly ran Hardee out
of the gym single-handedly in
the fourth game when she
inherited the service duties
and reeled off 14 straight
points - six of them on aces
- to put her
ts them team head
14-0.
"Cori had

Lady Cats to

The breather seemed to
work and Hardee rallied to
win 20 of the next 27 points to
cut the deficit to one, 21-20.
"That's been our problem,"
Walters said. "We start to
relax after we win a match or
get ahead by a bunch, then we
get down really fast: But we

Panthers sweep away Brevard


Ebanks, Young lead attack

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - Kim Crawford wants more
from the Lady Panthers.
South Florida Community College had just pol-
ished off a 30-17, 30-26, 30-16 rout of Brevard
Community College Thursday night at Panther
Gym to improve to 2-1 on the season, but the
third-year coach said her team's effort could have
been better.
"That really wasn't our true ability there," she
said. "We should look a lot better than that. We
didn't pass well; we didn't block the ball."
Still, the Panthers' output was more than
enough to dominate the Titans (0-2), who never
led by more than a 4-3 score and weren't able to
put up much of a fight against dominating play at
the net from SFCC sophomores April Ebanks,
Piper Young and Kathy Srolovitz.
SThe Titans led 2-0 in the opening game before a
6-0 run put SFCC in control. After a Brevard
point, consecutive aces from Ebanks keyed a
back-breaking 8-0 run that put the Panthers up 14-
3.
The second game may have been closer, but a
Srolovitz ace put the Panthers up 5-4 and they
never trailed again, getting a kill and a block from
Ebanks in a key 5-1 stretch that gave SFCC a 28-
21 lead and some breathing room.
Ebanks was particularly overpowering up front
in the third game, when the Panthers closed the
match on a 12-3 run while getting some outstand-

Williams sets record as Lady Streaks hammer Hardee, improve to 2-2


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Sebring Lady Blue
Streaks traveled to Wauchula on
Tuesday to take on a very young Hardee
team at fabled Torrey Oaks and got a
record-setting performance from junior
Jessica Williams to highlight their sec-
ond victory of the season.
The Streaks ran away with the match
161-266, but the story of the day was the
school record 3-under 33 from Williams.
"Jessica had six birdies (in nine
holes) on a very tricky golf course," new


girls head coach Wayne Stapleford said.
"It's not long, but to shoot a school
record (for girls golf) is very exciting."
Stapleford, who coached the boys
team last season, said the Lady Streaks'
play was "by far our best effort of this
young season" as sophomore Julie Lind
shot a 38, sophomore Kayla Dunn fol-
lowed with 44 and sophomore Heather
Brownell shot a 46 to round out the team
scoring. Freshman Priscilla Adams fin-
ished with a 54 and junior Summer
Miller had a 56.


On Monday, Sebring traveled to
Cleveland Heights Golf Club in
Lakeland to take on the Lakeland
Dreadnaughts and came away with a
180-250 win in a nine-hole match on a
challenging course. Sebring was led by
Williams and Lind, who both shot 44,
while Dunn and Brownell both shot 46
for a total of 180. Sebring's other two
golfers were Blair Doty with a 52 and
Ashley Thomas with a 71.
"We showed improvement and on a
very tough golf course; a good day,"


Stapleford said.
After a couple of cancellations, the
Lady Streaks' season finally got under-
way last Saturday with an 18-hole match
against two central Florida powerhouse
teams.
The first match saw Orlando Olympia
and traditional state tourney participant
Lakeland George Jenkins visit Schring
Golf Club for an 18-hole match.
Olympia won the match with a 337

When the U.S. Amateur

stopped counting as a major


For the longest
time, Arnold
Palmer used to
think he won
eight major
championships.
Tiger Woods
could say he has
won 13 majors
using that math,
but he doesn't see
it that way and ON THE
never has. Ask
him how many Doug I
majors he has
collected, and Woods doesn't
hesitate to say the British Open
last month was his 10th.
None of it really matters to
Jack Nicklaus.
Whether he has 18 or 20
majors, he still holds the
record.
"You could do it either way
you want to do it," Nicklaus
said. "I could have 20 and
Tiger could have 13. I mean, I
don't care. But I can't imagine
that anybody would have
thought of the U.S. Amateur
being a major in the last 10 or
15 years. Forty years ago, they
still looked at it that way."
Nicklaus spoke two weeks
before the start of the U.S.
Amateur, the oldest champi-
onship (by one day) in
American golf and long con-
sidered a major title. He won it
in 1959 and 1961 before turn-
ing pro, then captured the U.S.
Open the following year for
the first of 18 professional
majors.
Somewhere along the way,
the U.S. Amateur seems to
have lost its status, if not some
luster.
Edoardo Molinari of Italy is
the latest champion, winning
Sunday afternoon at fabled
Merion Golf Club to become
the first European winner since
Harold Hilton in 1911.
The victory earned Molinari
a place in history alongside
some of the biggest names in
golf - Francis Ouimet, Bobby
Jones, Palmer, Nicklaus, Phil
Mickelson and Woods. It gets
him into the Masters, U.S.
Open and British Open.
But should it count as his
first major?
It sure didn't for Mickelson.
And it certainly won't for
Nathaniel Crosby or Bubba
Dickerson.
"That should be classified as
one of the major champi-
onships," said Palmer, who
won the 1954 U.S. Amateur
before adding seven majors as
a pro. "I don't know who
downplayed it or why they did.
Until they downgraded it,. I
used to say I had won eight.
I've sort of backed off of that
now, because no one recog-
nizes it any more.
"To not recognize it as a
major is too bad."
If not for the U.S. Amateur,
there wouldn't be a Grand
Slam.
This is the 75-year anniver-
sary of Jones winning the four
major titles of his time - the
British Open, the British
Amateur, the U.S. Open and
the U.S. Amateur. George
Trevor of the New York Sun
referred to Jones' feat as the
"impregnable quadrilateral,"
while O.B. Keeler in the
Atlanta Journal later called it
the "Grand Slam."
And that's what inspired
Palmer in 1960 to reinvent the
notion of winning all four
majors in one year.
He won the Masters and
U.S. Open and was on his way
to St. Andrews with Pittsburgh
sportswriter Bob Drum. They
got to talking about Jones, and
Palmer suggested a new Grand
Slam.
"That became the talk of the
town," Palmer said. "They
dropped the status of the
Amateur, and I'm sorry they
did that. How can you say
Jones won the Grand Slam if
you don't include the
Amateur?"

m


Someone was
still counting the
U.S. Amateur -
when Nicklaus
came around.
His victory in
^ , the 1973 PGA
S Championship at
Canterbury gave
Nicklaus his 14th
career major to
FRINGE break Jones'
record of 13 (five
'erguson U.S. Amateurs,
-" four U.S. Opens,
three British Opens and one
British Amateur). At the time,
Nicklaus had won 12 profes-
sional majors and two
Amateurs.
But when he won his last
major at the 1986 Masters, the
record he left behind was 18
professional majors.
What became of.the U.S.
Amateur?
"It's a major championship
in the game of golf," Nicklaus
said. "But is it one of the ones
that you want to put in that
list? Because of Jones is the
only way you would put it
there. I accept it either way."
Without the U.S. Amateur,
Jones only has seven majors.
Nicklaus still would have beat-
en the record at Canterbury
with his 12 professional
majors, one more than Walter
Hagen.
Trying to determine when
the U.S. Amateur lost its status
as a major is as unclear as
when the Masters and PGA
Championship took over.
Woods brought the U.S.
Amateur some attention by
becoming the first male to win
.three straight years. But he
never considered it a major. He
suggests the demise of the
Amateur came in the 1940s
and 1950s, when Ben Hogan,
Sam Snead and Byron Nelson
were the popular forces in golf.
"That's when professional
golf got big," Woods said.
"They didn't play in it because
they were all pros. I think
that's when you can discount
any guy winning the Amateur
as being a major."
Even Nicklaus says the U.S.
Amateur as a major was "bor-
derline" when he won in 1959
and 1961. He probably counted
it toward his major total
because the record he chased
- 13 by Jones - included six
amateur titles.
"A lot of people considered
that a major at that time
because of Jones' situation and
what he did," Nicklaus said. "I
think as time has gone on, and
so much focus has gone on the
four professional majors, they
just sort of dropped off."
USGA president Fred Ridley
is the last U.S. Amateur cham-
pion (1975) who didn't turn
pro. Jay Sigel won in 1982-83
and remained an amateur until
he turned 50 and tried the
Champions Tour.
Golf at the highest level is
now about professionals.
So are the majors.

Doug Ferguson is the national
golf writer for the Associated
Press.

NCAA willing to bend rules in

wake of Hurricane Katrina


Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS - The
NCAA wants university offi-
cials and student-athletes to
focus on recovery efforts from
Hurricane Katrina rather than
worry about infractions, sched-
ule changes or travel restric-
tions.
To help, college athletics'
governing body may temporari-
ly adjust some of its most
restrictive rules.
Steve Mallonee, the NCAA's
managing director for member-
ship services, said Wednesday
the NCAA is willing to give
athletes and universities more
latitude to travel, provide more
benefits to athletes' families
and even allow students to
compete without attending
classes because of the storm
that devastated the Gulf Coast.
Other potential changes
include moving games to dif-
ferent venues, extending sea-
sons, and possibly allowing
athletes' families to stay on
campuses.
In past years, schools have
postponed or canceled games
because of hurricanes and other
inclement weather. The NCAA
allowed some games to be
rescheduled, and after the Sept.
11 terrorist attacks, the nation's
college games were postponed
- and most were rescheduled.
Still, the NCAA has a reputa-
tion for its rigid stances. The
2003 men's and women's bas-
ketball tournaments were not
delayed by the start of the Iraq
war, the 1981 NCAA champi-
onship was played the night
President Reagan was shot and
some people have complained
the organization is prone to fol-
lowing the letter of its volumi-
nous rule book rather than the
intent.
But, the NCAA has never
faced anything like this.
Experts predict it could take
months for some areas, includ-
ing New Orleans, to recover.
Classes could be canceled -
making athletes at those
schools ineligible under NCAA
rules - while other schools
may want to use football stadi-

urns or basketball arenas as
relief centers.
That could force games to be
canceled or moved.
The NCAA hopes a 'more
flexible approach will give
schools an opportunity to help
-communities, allow athletes to
assist family and friends and
compete on the playing field.
The impact of the .rules
changes could be felt from
coast to coast.
Mallonee said. il' Southern
California had a basketball
player whose home was in New
Orleans, the NCAA might ease
some of its travel restrictions to
help him get to Los Angeles.
Current rules only allQw
schools to pay for necessary
travel to and t'rom school
events.
What the NCAA wants most.
though, is for everyone to
understand that. games are sec-
ondary to helping hurricane
N victims.
"Right now. we're focusing
our priorities \\ here Ihev should
be -- on the people in the
region.' Mallonee said.

College Football


Meyer striving to unite Gators' past, present


By MARK LONG
APSports Writer
GAINESVILLE - Safety
Jarvis Herring remembers
spending time with several for-
mer Florida players when he
was a freshman in 2001.
He also recalls what it was
like the last three years.
"My freshman year, there
were a lot of older players who
always came around and hung
out with the younger guys,"
Herring said Monday. "After
that, there wasn't really any
around."
New coach Urban Meyer has
changed that.
Meyer has ' embraced
Florida's past, reaching out to
former players and inviting
them to return to campus for
gatherings and games. He hopes
the history lesson will help the
10th-ranked Gators recapture
the swagger they lost after los-
ing 15 games the last three sea-
sons.
"I think it's a tragedy for a
football player to go through a
school like the University of
Florida and not be very familiar
with the tradition and the power

of this place," Meyer said.
The former Utah coach con-
tacted dozens of former players
after moving to Gainesville in
January, sending them personal
letters and following up with
phone calls. He set up dinners
and meetings with several of
them, including NFL Hall of
Fame linebacker Jack
Youngblood and current
Buffalo Bills quarterback Shane
Matthews.
He spent hours with 1996
Heisman Trophy winner Danny
Wuerffel, Brad Culpepper,
Chris Doering and Alex Brown.
Former players got an open
invitation to watch practice,
hang out in the locker room and
be a part of the program. Many


of them were on the sideline for
the spring game.
"What he's doing is pretty
neat," said former Florida
place-kicker Judd Davis, who
received the Lou Groza Award
in 1993 as the nation's top kick-
er. "It's been nonstop letters
saying, 'We want you to be part
of the program."'
Davis was walking around
campus one day this spring, saw
Meyer working out and decided
to introduce himself.
"He had no idea who 1 was,
but once he found out I played
for the Gators, it was. amazing
how his whole demeanor
changed," Davis said. "He even
asked me to come by practice
and evaluate his kickers."


Meyer's plan to reunite
Florida's past and present cul-
minated with a barbecue for
previous and current lettermen
Saturday.
After watching practice, for-
mer players joined 'team cap-
tains for a catered lunch fol-
lowed by stories, speeches and
a highlights video.
"Coach Meyer, he's making
us learn, making us know about
the history of Florida football,"
Herring said. "I really don't
know anything about the older
guys. I know all about the guys
in the 90s. But anything before
that, I don't have no clue."
Past players were allowed on
Florida Field afterward -
Davis kicked two 40-yard field


goals barefooted - and then
given a tour of the locker room
and 'weight training facility.
They also had a chance to run
out though the tunnel.
"It's great for us and it's great
for the current players to be
exposed to it," said former
Florida receiver Lee McGriff, a
51-year-old insurance salesman
who led the Southeastern
Conference in receiving in
1974. "But they can't really
appreciate it until they get to
where we are."
Several current players said
meeting Youngblood was the
highlight of the event.
"It was big-time for me
because he made me think,"
defensive tackle Jeremy
Mincey said. "You go outside
and you're tired, 'Oh, I have a
little achy leg or my ankle is
(sprained).' He played with a
broken leg. Any time now I
think about any fatigue, any
pain, I just think, man, Jack
Youngblood played with a bro-
ken leg. I can get through this."
Meyer also invited former
lettermen to be on the field

The lettermen will form an

team will pass through as they

"That's part of the collegiate
experience that Florida can pro-
vide," Meyer said. "Not many
places can provide it like that."

"Actually, only allowing
three in each event helps us
because we can't always put
four in every event, and they
could have," Rivers said.
"Allowing three entries in
each event helps out, because
we have 30 girls," the Sebring
coach said. "It lets everybody

Yet on the boys side, there is
no such surplus for the Streaks.

five or six more boys," she said.
"If we had about five or six
more swimmers, at a meet like
this, that's what we need."
The numbers crunch is more
stark on the Dragon diving
board.

have divers," Rivers said. "We

touch that drove the Panthers in
the home stretch of the third
game as she changed tactics,
dinking the ball into gaps in the
Brevard coverage before end-
ing the match with one of her
more typical line-drive kills.
"That's just smart volley-
ball," Crawford said of Young's
finesse. "We've got girls that
can kill the ball, hammer the
ball, but they're so smart that in
the air they can see a hole and
they'll just put the ball there."

I think when our divers get bet-
ter, we will be more competi-

hard to win."
The result was a chance for
Dion to experiment with an eye
on future meets.
"It gives me a chance to dive
some of the divers that I haven't
yet," he said. "I threw a couple
of dives in there, a little harder
dives than what we'll (normal-
ly) do."

Sebring finished third as

had a 97. Sebring's other two
players (a team could play six

Miller (136).
"The girls competed very
well with these two strong
teams," said Stapleford. "We
have a young and inexperi-
enced team that will only
improve during the season."
After losing the top five
golfers over the past two years
due to graduation, Stapleford
has started to reload a team that
has qualified for the state tour-
nament the past six years. The
Blue Streak golf programs have
moved up to the top class (2A)
this year, so Stapleford has
stepped up the competition,
along with playing the white
tees instead of the traditional
red tees.
The Lady Streaks record
stands at 2-2 and this young
team is improving rapidly and
will work to compete for an
eighth consecutive district title,
according to their coach. More
importantly, Stapleford said,
the girls will all return next
year as the program is reloaded.
Next week, the Blue Streaks
will travel to Eaglebrooke in
Lakeland to take on George
Jenkins on Tuesday and on
Thursday will travel to Bartow
Country Club to tackle Bartow
and Haines City.

Ageless Agassi slays giant at Open


Associated Press
NEW YORK - Size doesn't matter in tennis.
Neither does age.
Andre Agassi stood 11 inches shorter than 6-
foot-10 Croatian Ivo Karlovic, spun serves about
50 mph slower, and logged far fewer miles on
court.
The ace count went to Karlovic, 30-5, as he
clocked serves consistently in the 130-142 mph
range, but the second-round victory at the U.S.
Open on Thursday went to Agassi, 7-6 (4), 7-6
(5), 7-6 (4).
At 35, nine years older than the gangling giant
across the net, Agassi came up bigger on. the big
points to continue his run for one more Grand
Slam title in his 20th visit to the Open. His wife,
Steffi Graf, and 3-year-old son, Jaden, watched at
courtside.
"Listen to that," Agassi said as the standing
crowd in Arthur Ashe Stadium cheered his victo-
ry. "How does that get old? Thanks guys."
Agassi, seeded No.. 7, couldn't equal
Karlovic's power and didn't care. Rather, he set-


tied for cleverness and steadiness, taking advan-
tage of the Croatian's weak backhand and awk-
ward lateral movement.
No one on the tour likes to play against the No.
56-ranked Karlovic, Agassi had said before play-
ing him for the first time, because his serves
come down from an unfamiliar trajectory, as if
fired from the roof. Agassi felt the same way after
winning.
"It's an incredible serve," Agassi said. "I'm
trying to figure out where it is I would need to
stand on the court to have the same trajectory."
Sebastien Grosjean beat No. 14 Thomas
Johansson 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, and No. 19 Tommy
Robredo knocked out former French Open cham-.
pionGustavo Kuerten 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2.
In women's matches, No. 2 Lindsay
Davenport, No. 6 Elena Dementieva, No. 7
Justine Henin-Hardenne, No. 12 Mary Pierce,
No. 13 Anastasia Myskina, No. 15 Nathalie
Dechy, No. 17 Jelena Jafikovic, No. 19 Elena
Likhovtseva, and No. 23 Tatiana Golovin all won
in straight sets.
