Highlands reaches out to Katrina victims


Help waiting to deploy

to disaster area
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands County emergency man-
agement has pledged to help Louisiana's Hurricane
Katrina victims in any way it can.
Emergency Management Director Bill Nichols is
not certain which staff members will be going or
what equipment will be donated. That will not be
determined until he hears from forward response
teams from the Florida Division of Emergency
Management, which have gone on to assess the situ-
ation. Until then, Nichols has asked county depart-
ment heads to list any surplus equipment they may
have so he can enter it in a statewide database.
"We're a thin county anyway," Nichols said.
Local officials have to make sure they can with-
stand a disaster without the labor and the equipment
they are donating to the Gulf Coast hurricane vic-
tims.
Assistant County Administrator Tom Portz said
County Administrator Carl Cool will ask commis-
sioners on Tuesday for authority to commit resources
through Nichols and the Division of Emergency
Management. State agencies have to coordinate the
effort since it is state-to-state mutual aid.
If the state makes specific requests by Tuesday,
Portz said staff will make a formal request to the
commission. The big issue is they need to be self-
contained, Portz said.
People who show up to help without having their
own shelter, food and water will be turned away.
Emergency managers will say, "I've got enough of
that problem," Portz said.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office will give
assistance through the Florida Sheriff's Association
Task Force. So far eight to 10 counties have deployed
from north Florida. Sheriff's Maj. Robert Lee said
the local office has faxed its available people and
equipment to the task force. He's waiting to hear
about deployment.
Meanwhile, Nichols is already getting calls from
people wanting to volunteer.
S"This will be a super long-term recovery effort,"
Nichols said. "They'll need emergency people there
months from n,(.''' , ' -
Big problem
. Storm surges carried casino barges - five stories
tall - inland as much as a mile, according to Art
Harriman, director of the Highlands County
American Red Cross Service Center. Some neighbor-
hoods have been completely leveled.
Harriman has used national channels to contact
affected residents, but he can not reach the local
offices. Either the people have been evacuated or the
buildings have washed away.

AVON PARK - Friends and neighbors around the
Tulane ( i+ .e--aia bonded together this week to send
supplieS' .c v'.�ini of ,-'.urricanc Katrina.
The; generosity was overwhelming, said Anne
Watson of Avon Park 'vho began asking for donations
Wednesday morning. She started her "Friends and
Neighbors Hurricane Relief" mission after she heard
Travis Crosson of Avon Park was taking an empty
dump truck from his tree service business up to Mobile,
Ala. to help with recovery efforts.
"I got Travis' permission to fill it with relief sup-
plies," Watson said. She felt there was no need in send-
ing an empty truck up there when the demand for sup-
plies is so critical.
Watson immediately began her mission by calling

friends, neighbors and family members she knew. Out
of the 50 phone calls she did in three hours, 40 people

AVON PARK - Pastor Jack Washington
asked for healing power from heaven and
for people to give their minds to do good in
this world.
Dewayne Council said for someone who
made him laugh all the time, he was not
going to hang his head and cry for DeMario
Levar "Turbo" Johnson, who died early in
the morning Aug. 25, less than a month
away from his 20th birthday - Sept. 15.
Johnson died from an unprovoked gun-
shot wound in the Washington Heights com-
munity in Sebring. Police are still investi-
gating his death.
A homecoming celebration at 1 p.m.
Saturday at Union Congregational Church
celebrated his life in dance, song, scripture,
praise, prayer, recollections and repentance.
A packed house started with the spiritual
"Down by the Riverside." and continued
with scripture read by -Washington and
Council, songs by Javis and Javis Mays, a
praise dance by the Vision Community
Church Praise Dancers, and acknowledg-
ments by Marion Funeral Chapel.
Pastor Mike Blare, Johnson's youth pas-
tor at Calvary Baptist Church, gave the
eulogy. The Avon Park High School class of
1982 gave a special remembrance to their
fellow classmate, Linda Johnson, who is
DeMario's mother.
The Rev. Alvin Conner presided over the
ceremony, and toward the end asked people
to come forward, to give their lives over to
God and feel healing forgiveness.


One wish Conner had, despite the pain of
Johnson's death, was that young people at
Saturday's celebration would take the
opportunity to get closer to God by attend-
ing, today, any of the 26 churches within a
five-mile radius of Avon Park.
"This call is a call we all
have to. answer," Conner
said. "When this call
comes, we've all got to be
ready."
"This death is tempo-
. I rary," he added. "You're
JOHNSON going to live eternally."
JOHNSO_ N Conner drew the connec-
tion to Johnson's nickname "Turbo," being
connected with power, to the power in the
word of God. People were lined up this
week to get gasoline, a temporary power,
Conner said, but he declared the power of
Jesus is eternal.
Johnson graduated Avon Park High
School this year. He loved basketball and
baseball, danced, told jokes, but was known
locally as a songwriter and rapper.
Several of the guests Saturday wore silk-
screen printed T-shirts in his memory and
camopflage pants. According to funeral offi-
cials, that's how Johnson was buried. It was
a tribute to his being a "soldier" in the rap
music industry.
Conner challenged all members of the
community to take action themselves to rid
neighborhoods of anything that would hurt
their children or take their lives too early.
Young people need to get God in their lives

Sun Room board wants services to continue


Audit compliance

key to keeping

funding
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Sun Room
Senior Center board members
still have not had a formal
meeting about a recent audit or
how to comply with it.
Until the board makes policy
decisions, at least two local
agencies are declining to
release funds that have been
earmarked for the center's
social and medical services.
At an informal information
meeting on Sept. 2, six board
members discussed those find-
ings with Michelle Roberts, a
member of the United Way of
Central Florida Highlands
County Advisory Board, and
Debbie McCoy, former execu-
tive director of the Sun Room.


Absent from the meeting was
J. Richard Swenson, the Sun
Room founder, chief executive
officer and board chairman.
However, it was not clear
whether all of the board mem-
bers had been notified of the
informal meeting.
Some were told there would
not be a meeting, board member
Gene Statler said. Others
weren't notified of the meetings
on Aug. 24 or Sept. 2 or told
that the Sept. 2 meeting was
"canceled."
Board member Julia Ernest
said she always got a letter of
the meetings, and she attended
Friday to learn what was going
on.
The next board meeting has
not been scheduled.
Over the summer, NCT
Group L.L.P. audited the Sun
Room's records for the 2003-04
fiscal year. Mike Carter with
NCT Group said auditors usual-


ly meet with a board of direc-
tors to discuss the audit, solicit
a response, and include that
with the findings. In this case,
however, Carter was unable to
set up a meeting or get response
from Swenson or the board of
directors.
Florida law requires the NCT
Group to communicate with the
board. Carter mailed copies of
the audit findings to each board
member.
"Most everything we found
could be easily fixed," Carter
said.
Carter was available for
Friday's meeting, but not
called. He said it was "unfortu-
nate" that the NCT Group was
not invited to meet with the
board.
The Sun Room provides
services to the elderly not avail-
able anywhere else in the coun-
ty.
On Aug. 30 Swenson said he


. a Oltcer Michael Hirsch uses a laptop computer to communicate with a vehicle clas-
hursda.i morning along Lakeview Drive in Sebring. Hirsch, who was assigned to'the

No word on bringing Guard



back to help with Katrina


Foley supports

recalling troops
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Despite the
devastation from Hurricane
Katrina, U.S. Army National
Guardsmen from Highlands
County will not be recalled
from Iraq.
Sgt. 1st Class Roy Cabalo,
the Readiness NCO for B
Battery, said he would expect to
hear about units returning home
through military channels. So
far, he's heard nothing about
such an event.
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Mark
Foley (R-FL) has expressed
hope that President George W.
Bush will recall those troops
whose communities in the
northern Gulf of Mexico coast-
line were hit hardest by the hur-


ricane and flooding.
Foley's congressional district
took three direct hits from hur-
ricanes last year. He believes
bringing home National
Guardsmen will help their fam-
ilies and boost rescue and relief
efforts, especially since those
soldiers are most familiar to
Their hometown areas.
"This has nothing to do with
Iraq," Foley said. "It has every-
thing to do with the guardsmen,
whose families and communi-
ties have been decimated by
Katrina."
Foley couldn't imagine how
people would be able to focus
on their mission in Iraq with
loved ones suffering back
home.
Cabalo said the U.S. Army
National Guard has family sup-
port groups for each soldier and
millions of dollars available to
provide support. That helps


ease the difficulty of having
someone gone overseas, and is
meant to help deal with any per-
sonal or external crisis.
As for keeping in contact
with family members, Cabalo
said military families and sol-
diers can contact each other
during emergencies through the
American Red Cross. Usually,
the decision to bring a soldier
home is made on a case-by-case
basis, he said.
There are many active duty
military personnel in Iraq and
elsewhere whose families are
now located in the devastated
areas, Foley said.
"We can't bring them all
back home now, but we could
bring home guardsmen whose
primary mission has always
been homeland-based defense,
rescue, relief and order," Foley
said.


didn't have any problem going
over the audit with NCT Group
and the board but didn't see the
need. He said the audit experts
have made recommendations he
would comply with as best as
possible.
"I think we should go along
with it," Swenson said.
Meanwhile, the United Way
Advisory Board for Highlands
County has frozen $19,500 for
the senior center social services.
The Highlands County Hospital
District Board has held a
$67,700 grant for part-time
workers for the medical center.
"Through the years, I've seen
a lot of help coming out of this
place," Dr. Fabio Oliveros said.
He serves as physician for the
medical services at the Sun
Room. "1 want to do what's
good for the community."
United Way Executive
Director Cheryl Sharp said she
wanted to make sure United


Way funds were spent appropri-
ately. Roberts had offered to
meet with the Sun Room to gel
the problem resolved.
On Friday, Roberts told
board members that improve-
ments could include separating
the functions of director and
chairman of the board, as with
most non-profit corporations.
Funding streams should stay
separate, she said, and the
director should report regularly
to the board.
McCoy, who had been the
Sun Room's executive director
until just after the audit was
completed, said she and her
staff probably made changes
that addressed audit concerns.
None of them were so serious
that the Sun Room would have
to shut down.
"My concern is not to close
down the Sun Room," McCoy
said. "Keep it open, or hand it
off to someone to run it."


Land development rules


to become ordinance


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - If approved,
Highlands County's land devel-
opment regulations will
become county law Tuesday.
It will standardize the build-
ing code for the county and
make rules easier to enforce. It
may also help outline how
much capacity the county has
for new growth, and how it will
accommodate those new resi-
dents and businesses.
The end result may help
Highlands County officials
keep a tighter reign on develop-
ment and growth, and how they
provide for it. Also, it may help
clear objections from the
Department of Community
Affairs in Tallahassee to numer-
ous land use changes the coun-
ty has submitted for approval.
The regulations will outline
how the county wants develop-
ers to do a traffic impact ,tud,.
'"lnd.lhe design and c 'thstrucilon
, .jrna. . ponrtinn. \c ar.e p 'v. er
'1.3f d dr:.iir t.-'u e , ,t.icn
County commissioners have
wanted to get these regulations
on the books to, put power
behind them. Right now, some
developers are exploiting a
loophole to subdivide agricul-
tural parcels into residential lots
without having to go through a
zoning change or make out a
site plan.
The problem with that, coun-
ty, officials said last month, is
that roads to those homes may
not be built to code. When resi-
dents ask the county to take
them over for maintenance, it
will take more work to fix
them, according to County
Administrator Carl Cool.
County planners hope to use
these new regulations to justify
some of the land use changes
submitted to the Community
Affairs. Developers have to
submit a form stating they have
made all the necessary infra-
structure improvements to
accommodate new develop-
ment..Under the new rules, the
county will require a letter from
The School Board of Highlands
County, stating there is enough
classroom space, as well.
Classroom size is one of the
major reasons why county,


municipal and school officials
have discussed the possibility
of having impact fees, accord-
ing to discussions all five local
government boards had on Aug.
16. To help pay for new schools
to serve new homes, a one-time
charge would collect a portion,
but not more than, the cost of
those capital improvements.
To implement these fees, the
county would have to show
there is a need, assess only
those homes and buildings that
would benefit, then make the
improvements within five to
seven years.
Building that capacity may
be crucial to growing at all.
Under Florida's new amend-
ments to the Growth
Management Act of 1985, com-
munities may have to show
they have capacity to accom-
modate growth, or will have it
within three years. Otherwise,
Stbhoe buildings can't go in.
i' This wi~old include putting
the needed ruIdi iln'place or
undei:r conitlru, iin within three
years of a local government's
approval of a building permit.
Local governments and school
boards would have to jointly
plan for any necessary new
schools, within three years.
Water supply would have to be
available, too.
Tuesday will be the second
public hearing on the land
development regulations.
Commissioners are expected to
vote on approval during the
hearing.

Velazquez officially




charged as 'bomber'


By PHIL ATfINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Police have
officially charged 45-year-old
Hector Velazquez Jr. with the
bombing incident that caused
Wachovia Bank in Sebring to
be cleared out Aug. 19.
He is being held on $205,000
bond for robbery with a deadly
weapon, attempted robbery
with a weapon while masked
and using a hoax bomb in a
crime. Those charges also
include the Movie Gallery rob-
bery in the morning on Aug. 18,
and an attempt to rob SunTrust
Bank in downtown Sebring
later that afternoon.
At 3:45 p.m. Friday,
Velazquez walked into Comcast
Cable at 3010 Herring Ave.,
Avon Park, and tried to grab a
front desk clerk to help him
open the register. The clerks
retreated from him, for fear of
being stabbed.
So, he jumped onto the
counter to open the drawer him-
self, he took $900, and immedi-
ately left in a white Ford Escort.
He turned onto Memorial Drive
right in front of Sheriff's Capt.
Mark Schrader, responding to
the robbery.
Velazquez tried to elude
Schrader, but was stopped on
State Road 17 at Home Avenue.
The Sebring. Police
Department questioned him
about those incidents after
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies arrested him for armed
robbery at Comcast. According
to arrest reports, he confessed
to the other incidents.

Wachovia Bank
The Wachovia Bank 'bomb-
ing' incident was only a hoax.
However, the perpetrator was
able to get the package into the
bank through the vacuum tube


system at the drive-through
teller windows.
At 10:30 a.m., Friday, Aug.
19, a man in a white car drove
up to the outside lane of the
drive-through tellers at 3200
U.S. 27 South in Sebring and
sent a small box through the
tube system.
The box had
wires sticking
' out of it and a
note attached
to it. It read,
"This is a

VELAZQUEZ the timer in my
hand, you have 30 seconds to
put money in the bag, old bills.
Send back tube."
The teller immediately noti-
fied the bank manager. Police
were called at 10:36 a.m.
A witness outside the bank
described the car as a small,
two-door vehicle with a white
male driver wearing a black
mesh mask and latex gloves.
Another witness further
away gave roughly the same
description. He thought some-
thing was wrong when the
tellers left and he could hear the
driver yelling. The witness
rolled his window down and
heard the driver saying he was
going to detonate something.
The second witness backed
up to try and read the tag num-
ber on the back of the car, and
even followed it out onto
DeSoto Road. An orange rag
was covering the license plate.
He described the car as an
eight-year-old Ford Escort with
a light tint on the windows.
Tampa Bay, Bomb Squad
responded to the scene, and
after destroying the package,
determined it was a hoax.

SunTrust Bank
After the Wachovia incident,


police suspected a connection
with an individual driving a
white Ford Escort who attempt-
ed to give a "gift" to a teller on
Thursday, Aug. 18, at the
SunTrust Bank at 126 West
Center Ave., downtown
Sebring.
The package would not fit in
the drawer, so the driver -
wearing a surgical mask and
gloves and a camouflage cap -
left the scene.

Movie Gallery
In the case of the Movie
Gallery robbery, Velazquez
allegedly tried to open the safe
in the back before resigning
himself to taking the money
from the register. The total
amount he stole from there was
$30: $25 in paper and $5 in
coins.
The robbery took place right
after the store opened. At 10
a.m., Aug. 18, arrest report state
Velazquez entered the Movie
Gallery at 2940 U.S. 27 South
in Sebring with a chrome-col-
ored knife.
He forced the store manager
and a clerk into the back of the
store to the safe. The manager
had trouble opening the safe
door, so Velazquez tried to do it
- and broke the handle off the
safe.
He then tried kicking it to get
it open, but that didn't work
either.
Finally, he took them both
back to the front of the store,
and demanded the money from
the register. The manager put
the money in a Movie Gallery
bag and gave it to him.
When he left the store, she
called Sebring police.
Velazquez told police he
used the knife in the robbery,
but didn't threaten anyone with
it, and kept it down by his side.

No steep rise in food bills Despite urbanization, sheriff


Editor' : note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we 'will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Oct. 16, 1975.
By JANELOU BUCK
The News presents its first
report on a subject that was
launched a month ago...the rise
or decline of food prices in the
Sebring area.
Of the varied merchandise
chosen for this survey, only
bread, milk, onions, sirloin
steak, tissue, TV dinners, Rice
Krispies and frozen concentrat-
ed orange juice have remained
reasonably steady.
The big news was sugar,
which took a nose dive after-
reaching a height some months
ago which caused boycotts
about the nation.
Last month a five-pound
sack in Publix, Winn Dixie and
Thriftway were respectively
$1.29, $1.59 and $1.69. This
week, in the same order, the
same sack was $1.19, 99 cents
and 69 cents. The latter two
were advertised specials.
In general, other items show-
ing a decrease in cost were
eggs, whole fryers, lettuce and
Wesson oil.
On the rise were butter, loin
chops, hot dogs and flour.
One of the nightmares of the
survey was that while the cost
of a given item might remain
steady in one of the three stores,
it could increase in the second
and lower in the third.
A case in point is Kraft
American sliced cheese (16 oz.
not wrapped singly). Last
month it was $1.27 (P) $1.19
(WD) and $1.17 (T). This week
it was $1.37 (P), $1.15 (T) and
normally $1.19 at Winn Dixie,
but a special of the week
brought it down to 99 cents.
Wesson oil came down from
$1.07 to $1.03 at Publix, $1.09
to $1.05 at Thriftway and
stayed 99 cents at Winn Dixie.
Chicken of the Sea tuna


(chunk, light, 9 1/4 oz.) went up
from 97 to 09 cents at
Thriftway, dropped from 92 to
88 cents at Winn Dixie and
remained at 89 cents at Publix.
The most difficult product to
assess is instant coffee. A


,,







month ago a 10 oz. jar of
Folgers and Maxwell .House
were $2.09 (P), $1.89 (WD)
and split at Thriftway, Maxwell
House was $2.15 and Folgers
$1.89.
This week at Publix, Winn
Dixie and Thriftway (in order)
FolgersL was $2.49, $2.39 .and
$1.89. Maxwell House was
$2.09, $1.99 and $1.89.
While Del Monte canned
peas showed a decrease at all


stores, Publix and Thriftway
had a three for $1 special on
other, brands which brought the
cost even lower.
Which leads again to the
importance of specials.
Last week the careful shop-
per could pick up a dozen large
eggs at Publix for 67 cents as
against 73 cents at Winn Dixie
and 79 cents at Thriftway.
With a pound of bacon rang-
ing from $1.59 to $1.99, Winn
Dixie came through with a nice-
looking special at $1.39.
Pork loin chops were gener-
ally up. Thriftway's sale price
of $1.59 a pound produced fine-
appearing chops, while Publix
$1.29-a-pound chops, while not
quite as meaty were easily the
best priced.
To keep track of the ever
changing tides of food costs,
The. News has selected a fey"?
i-tems for almost-all of t.ie i
stores' departments. When one
or more of those turn out to be
specials of the week, the record
is "thrown off" temporarily.

wants agriculture deputy


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Rural deputies
have graduated from animal
wrangling to homeland securi-
ty.
That and the fact Highlands
County still has 490,000 acres
of agricultural land spread out
among the 1,100 square miles
has Sheriff Susan Benton ask-
ing the county commission to
approve an extra agricultural
deputy to assist Deputy Fred
Tagtmire.
She's just waiting for the
county commission to approve
her budget request for the com-
ing year.
The agricultural deputy is a
vital -role, Benton said.
Highlands County's main vul-
nei.itlilitl with domestic securi-
'ly is its agriculture industry '


Citrus, cattle, row crops and
other fruit.
Agriculture operations occg-
sionally have hazardous materi-
als, such as fertilizer, anhydrous
ammonia, fuel, pesticide and
other chemicals. Local emer-
gency management officials
have asked farmers and ranch-
ers to closely watch those items
since the Sept. 11. 2001, terror-
ist attacks.
Sheriff's Captain Mark
Schrader said Tagtmire has
taken seminars on how to pro-
tect agriculture from domestic
or foreign terrorism or sabo-
tage. Two agricultural deputies
could work in shifts and cover
typical calls such as livestock
wandering onto roadways and
trespassing, usually with prop-
eity damage. For example, two
weeks ago, ridr6.Sniall';t6~iinii


vehicles knocked down a fence
to ride illegally on private prop-
erty.
Sclrader is surprised by how
much of the county has
remained in agricultural use
during his 13 years with the
sheriff's office. Often, his road
patrol deputies are forced to
handle such cases.
The agriculture deputy also
keeps up with the sheriff's
office special equipment, which
includes a powerboat, an air-
boat, a set of ATVs and a
mobile command post.
Tagtmire is trained to operate
some of it. Only a few can
operate the airboat.
If an agriculture deputy
became certified as a trainer, he
could bring the rest of the force

Pool party set for Sept. 16


Proceeds will be
used to help
hurricane victims
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Highlands
County Emergency Recovery
Operation Inc. and the
Highlands County Coalition for
the Homeless Inc. have final-
ized the date for their pool party
fund-raiser.
It will be from 6-10 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 16, at The
Candlelight restaurant, 5223
Sun 'N Lake Blvd.
Christine Justesen said this
fund-raiser will make a big dif-
ference for the county. Last
year, reserves weren't in place
to deal with a major hurricane,
not to mention three.
Local assistance agencies
still have more than 400 cases
of people trying to repair last


year's damage. Hurricane
Katrina has decimated parts of
the northern Gulf of Mexico,
and there are still three months
to go in the hurricane season.
Ryan Haynes, executive
director of the recovery opera-
tion, said both of the fund-rais-
er's sponsor agencies have
helped fix 2004 hurricane dam-
age for 240-250 families, with
about 450 cases still open.
Tickets to the picnic and auc-
tion at The Candlelight are $25.
The auction will accept bidders
paying with cash or a check
with photo identification. Call
Justesen with the recovery
operation at 402-6941 or 781-
1568.
The restaurant will provide
food. Coca-Cola has donated
drinks. Auction items include
rounds of golf at local courses,
flight lessons, local hotel
nights, framed artwork, a
Swedish massage, window


treatments, and a mural for a
small room painted by Virginia
Adair of Sebring.
Out-of-county donations
include golf at Celebration Golf
Club, a Sterling Casino VIP
party for 20-30 people at Cape
Canaveral, or airline tickets,
and tickets to attraction such as
Walt Disney World, Sea World,
Bonnet House Museum &
Garden in Fort Lauderdale, and
theaters in Orlando or Winter
Haven.
Donations also include cruis-
es to St. Augustine or to Grand
Bahama Island, a powered
parachute flight, surfing lessons
for three at NexGeneration Surf
School in Coca Beach, a one-
day Harley-Davidson motorcy-
cle rental in Orlando, a swamp
buggy ecological tour in
Clewiston, tickets to the St.

gator farm, or a two-hour glass-
bottom boat tour of th coral
reefs off'Fort Lauderdjle.

Bible Fellowship offers live simulcast


of Beth Moore's Living Proof event


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Bible
Fellowship Church will present
a live simulcast broadcast from
Continental Airlines Arena at
The Meadowlands, New York
City/East Rutherford, N.J. Oct.
7 and 8 via satellite.
Ticket price is $25 and can
be purchased by calling Bible
Fellowship Church at 385-
1024. Ticket sales will end
Sept. 16. The church is at 3750
Hammock Road.
Light refreshments will be
served during a one hour social
time before each simulcast.
Friday, Doors open at 6 p.m.
Oct. 7 and the event will be
from 7-9:30 p.m. Doors open 8
a.m. Oct. 8 and the event will be
from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. No
babysitting services will be pro-
vided.
Renowned and beloved
women's Bible teacher, Beth
Moore, will walk into women's
hearts with inspiration and
refreshment. She 'presents
Scripture teaching that God
lays on her heart for each indi-
vidual Living Proof live, event.
No two are alike.
As Moore explores the Bible,
she shows how it applies to real
life. Moore has a passionate
love for and desire to see lives
-transformed by the Word of
God. She has made it her mis-
sion to guide women into a
more fulfilling relationship
with God the Father wanting
them to enjoy the comfort and
security of his presence.
Moore is a speaker and
author of best-selling Bible
Studies such as, "A Woman's
Heart: God's Dwelling Place,"
"Believing God," "A Heart
Like His, Breaking Free" and
others published by LifeWay
Church Resources, Nashville,
Tenn. She is a woman of pur-
pose, preparation, prayer and
passion and lives what she
teaches.
Moore teaches a weekday
class at Houston's First Baptist
Church. It grew from a handful
of women to more than
200. Her popular Bible studies


developed out of those lessons
and have reached nearly
750,000 people each year; as
well as her speaking to thou-
sands of women who attend
Living Proof conferences each
year.
According to the LifeWay
Web site, Moore "knows from
firsthand experience that it is
only when hearts like ours are
shaped into hearts like his that
we will ever truly experience
abundant life."
She grew up in a Christian
home and received Jesus Christ
as Savior as a young girl. Then
she fell into untrustworthy
hands and became a victim of
some childhood abuse. This led
to her becoming an insecure
young woman who made some
wrong choices.
Eventually, Moore surren-
dered to God's call on her life to
full-time Christian vocational
service. She is married to Keith
and they have raised two
daughters and parented a son of
a close relative for seven years.
When Moore reached her
early 30s, she experienced a
period of intense brokenness.
She said that God showed her
that he didn't want her to live
for him, but rather he wanted to
live through her. Once she
absorbed that truth, her ministry
soared.
Moore has chosen not to
focus on her pain and what
she's lost, but on what she has
gained - a deeper relationship
with God.
Moore said, "We have the
truth, we have been given the
truth, but does it abide in us?
Only when it abides in us will
our joy be full, according to
John 15."
Joining Moore at the Living
Proof Live Simulcast 2005 will
be contemporary Christian
artist, Travis Cottrell and praise
team - musicians from
Nashville, Tenn. Cottrell has
developed a blended style of
worship in serving as worship
leader in churches, student
events and with Christian"
speakers; such as, h-enry
Blackaby, Anne Graham Lotz,


Josh McDowell and Beth
Moore. Dynamic music and
,worship await participants.
Living Proof was founded
upon the Bible verse, Hebrews
4:12a (NKJV):
"For the word of God is liv-
ing and powerful, and sharper
than any two-edged sword."
All ladies in the community
are invited to attend. Discover
what it's like to hear and see
every minute of a Living Proof
conference with Moore without
venturing out of Sebring..

SEBRING - Highlands
County has pledged 30-35 peo-
ple and various pieces of equip-
ment to help with the Hurricane
Katrina recovery effort.
The sheriff's office has
pledged its airboat, all-terrain
vehicles, four-wheel-drive
trucks, mobile command center
and four people to help restore
order.
The county has pledged to
send four people to help with


HELP
Continued from 1A
Floodwaters streamed into
the New Orleans streets
Monday from two levee breaks
near Lake Pontchartrain and
covered 80 percent of the city in
water up to 20 feet deep. That
has turned into a reddish-brown
soup of sewage, gasoline and
garbage.
Earlier this week, New
Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin told
the Associated Press it was like-
ly that hundreds and possibly
thousands had died.
Looting in the city was
ignored at first while law
enforcement officials concen-
trated on search-and-rescue
efforts. Late in the week, it had
reached more populated areas.
Nagin has ordered the entire
city police force to abandon res-
cues and stop the thieves.
A sign of the problem came
when Tenet HealthCare
Corporation asked for help late
Wednesday to evacuate a fully
functioning hospital in Gretna,
La., after a supply truck carry-
ing food, water and medical
supplies was held up at gun-
point.
Hurricane Katrina will likely
turn out to be the worst natural
disaster this nation has seen in
the last 100 years. The 1906
San Francisco earthquake and
fire killed 500-600 people. The
nation's deadliest hurricane hit
Galveston, Texas, in 1900,
killing an estimated 6,000-
12,000 people.

"It's about time for us to roll
our sleeves up. Don't sit there
being sanctified. Get out and
tell someone about Jesus," he
said.
Blare said "Turbo;" as he
knew him, had a lot of dreams

plies.
This same group was respon-
sible for helping Hardee
County last year after Hurricane
Charley tore through that area.
Watson said many have realized
how fortunate they are and want
to help those who are in more
desperate situations.
"They wanted to help. They
were so relieved to be called,"
Watson said.
It wasn't just the people she
called either that showed gen-
erosity. As Watson took money
donations to Wal-Mart to shop
for the supplies, people were
giving her handouts.
"One lady who was holding a
baby stopped by me and took
her baby's food out of her bas-
ket and gave it to me," Watson
said.
A 16-year-old first gave
Watson $20 to help. But after he
turned on the news and saw all
the devastation, he gave $60
more. "I know it (the money)
was dear to him," Watson said.
Crosson and his two-man
crew were scheduled to leave
Friday so Watson had to work
quick. She and several other
local residents began loading
the truck Thursday and by.
Friday afternoon Crosson was
heading toward Mobile, Ala.
When he arrives there, he will
meet with a priest from a cathe-
dral near Mobile who will
direct him to a warehouse
where they will unload the sup-
plies so Crosson can move on to
do cleanup work. Watson said
the church in Mobile will be
shipping the items to
Mississippi since the hurricane


and plans for his life and rela-
tionships, including a future
with his high school sweetheart,
Tameka Howell of Avon Park.
People cannot rewind life,
Blare said They have to live it
as it goes. Like a vapor, it's
here, then it's passed. All peo-
ple have done something
wrong, and need forgiveness,
Blare said.
There is help. He reminded


victims there need it more.
Watson said the American
Red Cross and other charities
are good when it comes to dis-
asters, but something like this
needs everyone's help.
"The cement is friends and
neighbors jumping in with what
they can do. People here can
continue to be the cement for
these people," Watson said.
She plans to continue collect-
ing items and money donations
to take another shipment up to
the Gulf. Plans are being made
to set up an account at
Heartland National Bank.
Anyone wishing to help, can
call Watson at 453-4181.

Other relief efforts
Several other groups
throughout Highlands County
are taking up collections to send
to the Hurricane Katrina vic-
tims.

FFA will be loading a semitrail-
er full of baby products. APMS
agriculture education teacher
and FFA advisor Kellie Duke
has her students involved in an
effort to fill a semi by Sept. 16
to help babies. They will be
accepting baby items such as
clothing, food, diapers, wipes
and blankets. These items can
be dropped off at APMS, 401 S.
Lake Ave., Avon Park, during
the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

people of the Gospel of John,
which reads, "(B)e of good
cheer. I have overcome the
world."
For a true Christian, Blare
said, death is just the beginning
of eternal life, because they
believe Jesus died for their sins.
The service ended with a
medley of songs, which includ-
ed the tune "There is Power in
the Blood of the Lamb.".

ToFrrN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Just please

don't make

me touch it
I thought writing this
week's Tuffin' It feature would
be a breeze and that I could be
very funny.
After all, I was visiting
David Norwood at his taxi-
dermy workshop in Lake
Placid, and I'm a city kid who
only buys meat in neat plastic
wrappers. Plunking me down
in the world of the self-suffi-
cient hunter had all the hall-
marks of a fish out-of-water
classical comedy.
Except I couldn't get myself
to take part, because - please
forgive me - I found it a little
creepy. And that's coming
from a guy whose favorite
jacket is leather.
So instead of pestering
Norwood for a chance to do
something, I kept silent. That's
how much I didn't want to
even touch anything.
In fact, at one point the hide
Norwood was working slipped
off the table and onto the floor
right by my feet.
Instead of bending over and
picking it up, I started to scrib-
ble furiously in my notebook,
brow furrowed, as if so deep
in concentration doing my job,
I hadn't noticed it fall.
What I was writing, howev-
er, was, "I'm writing as hard
and as fast as I can so I don't
have to touch the deer's head."

STaxidermist


Beauty runs skin deep with taxidermy


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Taxidermy, which
is Latin and means moving the skin, has
been around for centuries.
The ancient Egyptians used many of
the methods in their mummification
process, and American Indian tribes
used them in their tanning and preserv-
ing of animal hides.
Today taxidermy has become quite a
science. Taxidermists have to be
chemists and biologists as well as sculp-
tors, sewers, carpenters, business people
and artists.
Modern technology has made the
work easier as the molded form, which
becomes the mounted animal's base, is
far more lifelike than the wood and treat-
ed string base taxidermists had to con-
struct by hand before.
And adhesives and cleaning fluids are
much more effective.
Otherwise much of the work is tradi-
tional and unchanged.
It all starts with the hunter and his kill.
The single most important thing a hunter
can do is get the animal frozen as quick-
ly as possible.
David Norwood, who owns and oper-
ates Highlands Taxidermy Studio, warns
people that coolers are not usually cold
enough to prevent the build up of bacte-
ria. Many of them are actually bacteria
factories.
Bacteria, he said, is the enemy. They
cause rot, which means that the mount's
hair will eventually fall out, and the skin
will wrinkle and slip on the foam'base
it's placed.
The worst case scenario, he said, are
those inexperienced hunters who; having
killed themselves a wild hog, ride
around all afternoon with their trophy in
the back of a pick-up truck, showing it
off to their buddies.
After three or four hours in the heat,
saving that hog for posterity becomes an
almost impossible task.
But Norwood doesn't much care for
hogs even flash frozen. They carry dis-
ease for one thing. And for another, they


have natural fighting shields across their
shoulders which have the consistency of
thick automobile tires. Getting rid of
them is strenuous work.
The other problem with hogs is that a
lot of people hunt them with dogs, and
let the dogs do the killing. This means
the ears are often chewed up and need
extensive repair. He charges extra
because of it.
Arguably worse are road kill animals
people want saved. They crawl with ants
and ticks, as well as often being rotten.
Norwood came to this profession
almost by accident. He grew up hunting
and fishing. Even as a young boy, he
experimented with preserving the tails of
squirrels he had shot.
Over the years, while he successfully
sold automobile parts, he became more
and more skilled, reading books, practic-
ing on skins brought to him by friends,
and watching how-to videos.
He took a professional course, and as
he got better, by word of mouth it began
to spread about his skill. Before he knew
it, his hobby had turned into a business.
Now he is so busy he has five freezers
filled with animals skins waiting to get
done. He figures he has at least a year's
worth of work already at hand.
Despite how busy he is, however, he
worries that taxidermy may be a dying
art. Hunters keep on coming, but teen-
agers just don't think about it as a living,
and there's no school they can go to.
Finding a taxidermist with the time to
teach is difficult, he himself can't do it.
While some states require profession-
al licensing, Florida is not one of them.
At this time, Norwood said, all you need
is a routine occupational license.
A person will not get rich from this
profession, he said, but a person can
make a decent living.
Customers are charged by the piece. A
deer head typically takes 10 to 12 hours
of work, spread over weeks, as the head
has to dry and settle as it's worked. He
currently charges about $360 for a stan-
dard deer head mount.
Norwood can be reachedat 69�-1339.


Norwood sews the top of the deer's head shut, aftei screwing the antlers back on it.
Before mounting, the hide has to be turned inside out so all flesh can be removed from
the epidermis. This means the top of the head has to be opened to remove both the
antlers-and the skull.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
David Norwood demonstrates how taxidermists got their name. It's from the Latin, he said. Taxi means
move, dermas means skin. Here Norwood is taxing the mount, or moving the skin, to get it properly
placed on the foam mold which will support it.


TOUCH
Continued from 11A
What you have to under-
stand is the deer's head and
neck, at this point in the
process; don't look like a deer
at all. The pelt is soft, almost
shapeless, like an empty sock.
Lay it out on the table and it
looks more like a puppet or
pull-over mask for "The Lion
King," than anything that once
was alive.
It turns out that taxidermists
don't often work with com-
plete animals. More commonly
they preserve the head and
neck, which are mounted for
hanging.
Everything that was inside
the animal has to be gone. That
means every scrap of meat or
gristle.
Fortunately, I arrived on the
scene fairly late in the process.
The deer Norwood was work-
ing was already clean and
tanned, which meant the hide
had no odor or disgusting
things clinging to it.
He had already caped it.
That means he had removed
the antlers and skull, and split
the eye sockets, mouth and the
cartilage that had been the
nose, so he could turn the ani-
mal inside out.
He was fleshing the hide
when I got there. Fleshing is
when the taxidermist uses a
very sharp knife like a straight
edge razor blade, methodically
stroking the skin to remove all
the flesh. It takes patience,
because every little bit has to
be removed.
Once the skin is completely
cleaned, it has to be dried.
Norwood puts the inside-out
skin into in a tumbler machine
filled with saw dust, running it
for several minutes. Then he
follows up with a hand-held
blow dryer.
Then the skin is turned right
side out, and it goes back into

the tumbler for a bit.
When it's dry he shakes it
out like a rug, and then fixes
the ears.
The ears of a mount will
crumple up in time unless
something is done to preserve
them.
In the old days, taxidermists
used lead. Nowadays they use
plastic inserts, or bondo.
Norwood prefers bondo,
because it molds like clay for a
realistic result.
But he has to work fast, one
ear at a time, because once the
active ingredient is added to
the mix, he only has a couple
of minutes before it hardens.
He stuffs each ear with
bondo, like it was a chili rel-
leno, and shapes it, using a
small ball pen hammer to thin
the edges.
What's creepy is that until
the ears are fixed, the hide has
been both soft and silent. But
once the bondo is in place, the
ears look very lifelike, but feel
very heavy and hard. When the
hide is put on the table now,
the ears clunk against the sur-
face, sounding like bowling
balls.
The final step is to slip the
hide onto a factory made mold
made of foam painted with
glue. Norwood had already
glued glass eyes to the form,
and used clay to build up the
socket.
Then he gathered the hide,
like you would a sweatshirt
before pulling it over your
head, and slipped it onto the


form, like you put on the
sweatshirt. Only he has to use
a tool with a wooden handle
and a row of thick, sharp
spikes that he jams into the
skin to get the traction to pull
it into place.
All of this, by the way, has
to be done very carefully, espe-
cially with southern deer
because they have thinner skin,
and ripping it is always a pos-
sibility.
Taxidermists have to be
expert sewers, for just that rea-
son.
By now, the deer is becoml-
ing recognizable. The antlers
have to be screwed back on,
and various slits and cuts sewn
shut, including the mouth.
Sometimes a little airbrush
painting has to be done for the
finishing touch.
Once the deer looked more
like a deer, I made myself
reach out and stroke it. I was
surprised at the softness. My
dog has a stiffer coat.
I have to admit it had, in the
past, crossed my mind to have
that dog stuffed after she dies,
because she's been such a boon
companion. But now I know
not, because I'd never be able
to touch her.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Not laboring

in vain
Common chores or unex-
pected problems wear down
enthusiasm in all career
fields. Moms weary of the
mundane tasks that accom-
pany the joys and privileges
of raising children. Dads
deal with the routines of
work along with the perks.
Pastors and counselors
know the lows as well as
the highs of ministry. But
we labor on, nonetheless.
For example, in writing,
it's fulfilling to discover
new ways to flow words
together so that they cas-
cade down a page and
refresh the reader.
Yet, there are challenges
and tedious, mundane rou-
tines. Clipping and filing is
boring. Organization means
discipline so that when I
face the computer to write, I
won't "feel" piles of incom-
plete tasks reaching out to
smother me.
Cooking is another enjoy-
able pastime. Presenting
food in an appealing way to
family and guests is pleas-
urable for me. But, even
with a dishwasher, there's
clean-up during and after
the cooking process.
Singing with my husband
is one of the most precious
activities we share in our
marriage. It's enriching to
blend our voices in harmo-
ny as we sing praises to
God.
But, guess what? Singing
takes practice. Mistakes are
frustrating and it's easy to
want to give up sometimes.
Some songs require a lot of
work in learning tempo,
harmony and expression.
Or, a song we thought
'would be perfect for our
voices just isn't. And we
fret over wasted money and
time spent trying to make it
work.
However, we press on
because we know that any-
thing worthwhile is worth
the effort. What's a little
clipping and filing next to
knowing a completed article
may touch the heart of a
reader?
What's the big deal about
clean-up when caring for
one's family and hospitality
are entwined in the mix?
It's exhilarating when a
difficult piece of music is
finally "ours." Every hour
of practice is worth it when
hearts are blessed and
turned to the Lord.
In essence, it is the love
we put into what we do that
makes the difference. When
our work is a labor of love
- especially when that love
is dedicated to the Lord and
we seek to please him
above all else - then noth-
ing is in vain.
"Therefore, my beloved'
brethren, be steadfast,
immovable, always abound-
ing in the work of the Lord,
knowing that your labor is
not in vain in the Lord." (I
Corinthians 15:58, NIV)
When we abound in the
work of the Lord, we're
encouraged to stay focused
and not give up; to go the
extra mile and strive for
excellence. Consequently,
the end result is a labor of
love.
So, as we rest on this
Labor Day, let's also be
challenged to do our work
as a labor of love to the
Lord. What a difference that
will make. Selah.

The



More people

are opting for

nips, tucks,

lifts for a

healthier,

younger look
By Pamela Ferris-Olson
Cox News Service
DAYTON, Ohio - Some things like
fine wine are thought to improve with
age. Appearance, however, isn't one of
them.
National statistics suggest that
Americans, particularly baby boomers,
are increasingly lifting their eyes, eye-
brows and even their buttocks in an
effort to reclaim their youthful looks.
"Most people want to look younger,
like they did 20 years ago," said Dr.
Kurtis Martin, a Cincinnati-based plastic
surgeon. "Eyelifts, facelifts and
browlifts help to restore the appearance
they once had."
Martin, who does 800 to 1,000 cos-
metic procedures a year, said 90 percent
of his patients seek his services purely
for cosmetic reasons.
Cosmetic surgery has been in the
spotlight recently, since Greta Van
Susteren of FOX News startled viewers
in February with a new look. She had
eyelift surgery, called blepharoplasty.
The American Academy of Cosmetic
Surgery reports more than 500,000
Americans sought eyelid surgery in
2001. The top three most popular surgi-
cal procedures for women last year were
liposuction, eyelift surgery and breast
augmentation. The top three for men
were hair transplant/restoration, liposuc-
tion and eyelid surgery.
Kathy Delp, 52, of Liberty Township
in Butler County, is one of Martin's
patients. In 1996, she underwent a full,
lower body lift.
"I had lost a lot of weight and had a lot
of excess skin," Delp said. The surgery
"pulled'up my inner thighs, my butt, the
whole top of the leg and my tummy."
The surgical procedure took six to
seven hours and left Delp with a hairline
scar along her back and the inside of her
legs. She was so happy with the results
she decided to have a facelift in
November 2000.
"I knew I was going to have one done
some day, and I didn't want to wait until
I was so wrinkled that it would be a dras-
tic change," she said.
Delp had her earlobes reduced in size,
her eyebrows and eyelids raised and the
skin on her chin and neck smoothed. She
underwent the procedures even though

bruising and swelling that follow, Martin
said.
"Some people are unrealistic in their
goals," he said. "If there are no more
improvements that can be made, you
need to tell them."
He said he demonstrates the potential
effects of plastic surgery for a patient by
pulling his or her skin tight and by using
computer software to create a virtual
picture of the post-surgical results.
Carol Frank of Englewood, Ohio, has
spent 20 years consulting people about
how they look. Frank, who spends 10
hours a day on her feet, chose less inva-
sive techniques to deal with her own
cosmetic issues.
Instead of plastic surgery, Frank
sought the help of Centerville dermatol-
ogist Dr. Karl Kellawan.
"I had some large and some small spi-
der veins in my legs," Frank said. "I'm
the biggest baby in the world, and I was
afraid I'd have to have surgery. I kept
putting this off."
Kellawan eliminated Frank's spider
vein problem with sclerotherapy, a pro-
cedure that involves injecting a chemical
solution into the vein to dissolve it.
"He could do both legs in 10 minutes
tops," Frank said. "It's almost like a
lunchtime treatment."
Frank had four treatments over the
course of several months before the
veins were completely dissolved. She
also underwent microdermabrasions and
chemical peels to help soften fine lines

Jordan said.
Jordan said she did a lot of research
before she chose a surgeon.
"There's always a risk," she said. "I
wanted to minimize it."
Martin agreed that finding the right
surgeon is crucial.
"My advice is that prospective
patients find a board-certified .plastic
surgeon and ask to see other patients the
doctor has operated on," he said. "See if
you like their work."
A doctor should help the patient
understand the procedures before sur-
gery and prepare the patient for the


she finds surgery frightening and had to
bear the full cost herself.
Martin said the cost of procedures like
those Delp had would be about $20,000.
Nevertheless, Delp said, she'd do it
again. The surgeries have made her look
and feel great, she said.
Dayton television news anchor Donna
Jordan has also had experience with
plastic surgery. Jordan had her left eyelid
reconstructed about seven years ago.
"My left eye was droopy. It was real-
ly bothering me ... There was a lot of
excess skin on the eyelid, and when I
was tired it became a real problem,"


Under control when things are out of control


EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results - loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Mike's stomach ulcer never troubled
him again once he left architecture for
the Secret Service. However, a serious
abdominal ailment would plague Emily
and keep them on edge.
When Emily discovered she was preg-
nant, they were elated. But around the
fifth month of pregnancy, the troubles
began. Disquieting pain escalated to
.gripping, searing pain and progressed
with a vengeance. She cried for relief.
In the hospital, the doctors grappled
for a diagnosis. When they discovered a
blockage in the bowel caused by adhe-
sions from a surgery in her youth, she
lost the baby boy she was carrying -


barely hanging onto
her life by a thread
This introduced
similar episodes that
would interrupt life's
normal flow in the
years to come. It
crossed her mind every
time Mike left on an
assignment, but she
hoped it would never
happen while he was
gone.

immediate surgery.
Meanwhile, Mike had
received the message
. ~and franticly tried to get
,, home before they oper-
:.. ated. But, there was no
4..: , time to wait on Mike.
S-. An incredible peace
enveloped Emily and
she knew she would be
W4i0 fine and Mike would get
S SUN home safely.
R NEWS SUN
"Do what you Ilmust
do," she told the doctor.
"I know everything will be OK."
Meanwhile unbeknownst to her, a
friend and fellow agent of Mike's had
gone to pick up the girls, gotten then
some clothes and brought them to his
family's home. They fed them, kept
them overnight - and as it happened to
be Halloween - even took them trick or
treating.
The doctor remarked that though her
children were getting the treat, he was
sorry she had gotten the trick. Yet, God
had put several friends in place for their
children, her care, tracking down Mike
and getting himi home sal'ely.
The tension and struggle to reach each
other had hben frustratingly intense and
seemingly out of control. But' God was
in control - even keeping Emily from
the fear of being lonee in a desperate sit-
uation.


Warm up time
Separanon anxiety\ is height-
ened by traumatic situations. Let
your thoughts turn to God for the
safe keeping of your lored ones.

Sit-up and take notice
You've both been stretched.
Take a deep breath so you can
bring calm strength to your
spouse. Open your eyes to God's
provident steps during the

As time passed,
Emily adjusted to Mike's absences - not
dwelling on the possibility of illness. In
fact, she listened to his itinerary compla-
cently. This particular time it was a
whistle-stop tour for President Reagan.
Then it happened. She instantly rec-
ognized the pain and couldn't ignore it.
By now, they had two daughters, 7 and
10. Mike was gone. The natural fear
returned. Her mind raced.
"Where did Mike say he was going to
be today? It began with an I. Was it
Idaho or Iowa?" she wondered out loud.
Dialing the Secret Service, she told
them, "I need my husband. Please track
him down."
The next call to her neighbor secured
a ride to the hospital and care for her
girls when, they got home from school.
The doctor assessed the situation. Her

Preparation makes for a smooth move to another state


Question: We're moving to |
another state in a few months. I
know it's going to be tough for
our two children, who have so
many friends at school. How can
I get them ready for life in a new
city?
Dr. Dobson: Going to a new
school or moving to a new town
can be an unpleasant experience
for children, but there are some F(
ways to make it easier for them.
Preparation and forethought ON
are the keys.. Educator Cheri F
Fuller recommends that those
who are about to relocate call a Dr.
family meeting to talk about Do
what's going to happen. Begin to
lay plans together. It's sad to say
goodbye to good friends and it's hard to
make new ones. Try establishing pen pals
for your children in the new school long
before the move is to occur. Relationships
can blossom through the mail so that the
kids are not entirely unknown in the new
location.
It's also helpful to create curiosity about
the new city or neighborhood you're mov-
ing to. Write to the state tourist bureau or to
the chamber of commerce and ask for
brochures and maps. When your children
begin to understand the adventure of mov-
ing, they may develop a more positive atti-
tude toward leaving. A bit of preparation
and a healthy dose of communication can
help clear the way for a smoother journey
to a new home.

my fault. I still feel that way. I
had never even looked at another
woman, yet here I am taking the
blame for her affair. Rationally, I
know I'm being very unfair to
myself, but I can't help it. Or can
I?
Dr. Dobson: It is the typical
reaction of a rejected spouse, like
yourself, to take full responsibil-
ity for the behavior of an unfaith-
ful spouse. The wounded partner
- the person who was clearly
the victim - is the one who suf-
fers the greatest pangs of guilt
and feelings of inferiority.
How strange that the one who
tried to hold things together in
the face' of rejection often finds


himself wondering: "How did I fail her? I
just wasn't man enough to hold my woman.
I am 'nothing' or she wouldn't have left. If
only I had been more exciting as a sexual
partner. I drove her to it. I wasn't handsome
enough. I didn't deserve her in the first
place."
The blame for marital disintegration is
seldom the fault of the husband or wife
alone. It takes two to tango, as they say, and
there is always some measure of shared
blame for a divorce. However, when one
marriage partner fi- in this case, a wife -
makes up her mind to behave irresponsibly,
to become involved extramaritally, or to run
from her family commitments and obliga-
tions, she usually seeks to justify her behav-
ior by magnifying the failures of her
spouse. "You didn't meet my needs, so I
had to satisfy them somewhere else," is the


familiar accusation. By increasing the guilt
of her partner in this way, she reduces her
own culpability. For a husband or wife with
low self-esteem, these charges and recrimi-
nations are accepted and internalized as
indisputable facts.
You must resist the temptation to take all
the blame. I'm not recommending that you
sit around hating the memory of your wife.
Bitterness and resentment are emotional
cancers that rot us from within. However, I
would encourage you to examine the facts
carefully. Ask yourself these questions:
"Despite my many mistakes and failures in
my marriage, did I value my family and try
to preserve it? Did my wife decide to
destroy it and then seek justification for her
actions? Was I given a fair chance to
resolve the areas of greatest irritation?
Could I have held her even if I had made all
the changes she wanted? Is it reasonable
that I should hate myself for this thing that
has happened?"
If you examine objectively what has
occurred, you might begin to see yourself
as a victim of your wife's irresponsibility
rather than a worthless failure at the game
of love.

Divorced husband refuses to leave ex-wife's house


Dear Abby: I have a close friend I'll call
"June," who was married to a man named
"Jeff" who lied to her. He was an elder in
the church for several years and is retired
from the military.
It all started when Jeff had a stroke. He
told June he needed to. set up a bank
account for her in case he had another one,
but he kept putting it off. So June went on
the Internet to research some information to
make it happen, and got the shock of her
life. She learned that Jeff is still married to
his previous wife. She contacted the pastor
and they confronted him; Jeff denied every-
thing. (June has since gotten an annulment.)
The house belongs to June, but Jeff
refuses to leave. He stalks her. Everywhere
' she goes, he shows up. He keeps telling her
- she's going to have him in her life whether
she likes it or not. She tries to ignore him,
but he constantly approaches and confronts
her.
Now the pastor is trying to get them back
together. When she says she wants nothing
to do with him, the pastor tells him she's
being "uncooperative."
June took the legal route. A judge has
ordered Jeff to pay off June's student loans,
which he hasnt done. He still hasn't moved
out of the house, and his boss thinks they're
still married. What should she do in this sit-
uation? Sell the house? Or get a restraining
order? - Confused in New Mexico
Dear Confused: June should inform her-
attorney that the bigamist she married is

asked me if she could go into cheerleading.
I was skeptical, but was talked into letting
her try out.,
.At the first practice, the coach empha-
sized that the girls were a "team" and were
to all get along. I thought, "Good! Maybe
they'll accept her."
We have had only one practice, and two
people have come up to me and told me that
a lot of the girls on the squad are saying
Courtney is too fat to be a cheerleader. This
really hurt my feelings. My daughter cries
every day because the girls treat her differ-
ently. She knows she's overweight, and has
been working so hard to lose it that it has
become a major issue in our household.
I'm afraid this will scar her and she'll
become bulemic over it. Should I pull her
out and give in to those so-called thin "per-
fect" girls who are talking badly about her?


Or should we prove that she can
do it, too? I have lost sleep over
this. - Sleepless in Illinois
SDear Sleepless: Girls your
daughter's age can be extremely
cruel and cliquish. Talk to
Courtney's cheerleading coach
and tell her what you have
learned. Ask her if your daughter
is able to perform as well as her
teammates. If the answer is yes,
she should remain on the team. If
she isn't, then help her find
another form of exercise she can
do while she works on her weight


issues. Ballet, gymnastics and martial arts
would give her grace, balance, flexibility
and confidence, and help her'burn calories
until she's ready to rejoin the squad.

Photographs and poems celebrate America's melting pot


September starts
with a well-celebrat-
ed holiday, Labor
Day, an American tra-
dition. Thinking
along those lines, the
Sebring Library dis-
play cases will have a
patriotic theme all
this month courtesy
of the Patriots
Chapter of the
Daughters of the
Am e r i c a n
Revolution.
I hope you also

enjoy the vertical display, fea-
turing photographs from the
24/7 books of all 50 states.
Maybe you can guess in which
state some of the photographs
were taken. Then again, some
are typically American.
Choose any state and think


on what freedom we
. have as Americans to
. ravel, to worship, to
express ourselves, to
have the opportunity
to grow, and, even to
dare to change our
S world.
The theme this
' " month, "America,
SLINES the Golden Door,"
comes from a poem
esselink written by Jewish-
American author
Emma Lazarus as a
fund-raiser for an art
auction, "In Aid of the
Bartholdi Pedestal Fund." In
1883, the Statue of Liberty, as
we know it, still needed funds
raised for a pedestal to elevate
the statue properly, and, as one
of the New York literary elite,
Emma did her part with her


poem "The New Colossus".
The Jewish Women's
Archive says, "The famous son-
net echoes many of the conflict-
ing identities and ideals Lazarus
dealt with in her own life.
Struggling beneath the poem's
surface, these tensions -
between ancient and modern,
Jew and American, voice and
silence, freedom and oppres-
sion - give Emma Lazarus'
work meaning and power".
While today we think of her
poem as a part of the Statue of
Liberty, in fact it was some 16
years after Emma died that her
sonnet was engraved on a
plaque and affixed to the stat-
ue's pedestal. Do you think you
know her poem, or do you.just
know part of it?
, Here's the poem, as it


appears on America's icon of
freedom.
"Not like the brazen giant of
Greek fame
"With conquering limbs
astride from land to land;
"Here at our sea-washed,
sunset gates shall stand
"A mighty woman with a
torch, whose flame
"Is the imprisoned lightning,
and her name
"Mother of Exiles. From her
beacon-hand
"Glows world-wide wel-
come; her mild eyes command
"The air-bridged harbor that
twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your
storied pomp!" cries she
"With silent lips. "Give me
your tired, your poor,
"Your huddled masses yearn-


ing to breathe free,
"The wretched refuse of your
teeming shore.
"Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tost to me,
"I lift my lamp beside the
golden door!"
We are also celebrating with
Avon Park Library their tempo-
rary quarters being open at 9 E.
Main St., an annex to the
Jacaranda Hotel. While the
small space dictates that only
some of their collection could
be moved, you'll find the best
sellers, videos and DVDs and
reference help during normal
library hours.
We hope you'll exercise your
freedom of choice and drop by
on Saturday for their free film
series. September's theme is
films that honor dedicated


teachers. On Saturday, Sept. 10,
is "Les Choristes," cast in flash-
back. "Wonderboys," starring
Michael Douglas and Robert
Downey Jr., will play on
Saturday, Sept. 17. Bring some
hankies for the Sept. 24 show-
ing of "Mr. Holland's Opus."
The Avon Park Friends have
also moved with the library, and
you'll find bargains and titles
dear to your heart at the new
location.

Inaugural Fred Rogers scholarship announced


Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - A schol-
arship in memory of Fred
Rogers, who produced and
hosted the acclaimed PBS chil-
dren's program "Mister Rogers'
Neighborhood," was given to
its inaugural recipient, a
University of California film
student.
Michelle Lyn Banta, a gradu-
ate student at the UCLA School


of Theater, Film and Television,
received $10,000 to support her
study in children's media and
further "the values and princi-
ples of Rogers' work," the
Academy of Television Arts &
Sciences said.
Banta's selection was
announced Tuesday at a cere-
mony attended by Rogers'
widow, Joanne Rogers.
Rogers died of cancer in


2003 at age 74.
"The announcement of this
scholarship fund in Fred's
memory was a thrill," she said
in a statement, calling Banta a
deserving candidate whose
selection honored Rogers.
Banta also will have the
opportunity to work with a
mentor from the academy's
children's programming group
during the school year.

Pineapples are tropical plants Country superstar Toby
_ .Keith launching own label


that grow well in Florida


I have five pineap-
ple plants growing in
my back yard. Two
are bearing fruit,
while the others just
seem to put out
leaves. If they don't
flower soon I may
have to force fruiting
by using chemicals
such as calcium car-
bide. A few grains
applied to the termi-
nal bud should do it.
Most people
believe that the
pineapple is native to
Hawaii. Actually, it
originated in South


. .








GROWING

SEASON

Highlands
County Master
Gardeners


America and was transplanted
throughout tropical areas by the
Spanish and Portuguese. It was
also taken back to Europe to be
grown there.
The Europeans improved the
plant and developed pineapple
plantations before introducing
them into Australia and Hawaii
in the late 1700s. Today, China,
the "king" of the pineapple


industry, produces
more pineapples than
any other country in
the world.
Hawaii is still the
largest producer of
pineapples consumed
in the United States.
Florida is the only
other state that grows
pineapples domesti-
cally, mostly in gar-
dens.
The pineapple is of
the Bromeliaceae fam-
ily with the scientific
name of Ananus como-
sus. The Red Spanish
and Smooth Cayenne


varieties are the most popular in
Florida.
The Red Spanish variety
weighs 2-4 pounds, has a pale
yellow flesh with pleasant
aroma and is squarish in shape.
It is well adapted for shipping
as fresh fruit. It has spiny
leaves.
The Smooth Cayenne 5-6
pounds and pale yellow to yel-


low flesh. It is cylindrical in
shape and with a high sugar and
acid content. It is well adapted
to canning and processing. It
has leaves without spines.
Pineapples are propagated by
planting new vegetative growth
from the mother plant. There
are four general types: "Slips,"
which arise from the stalk-
below the fruit; "suckers"
which originate at the axils of
leaves; "crowns," which grow
from the top of the fruits; and
"ratoons" which come out from
underground portions of. the
stem.
Slips and suckers are the pre-
ferred planting material, espe-
cially if they are large and vig-
orous. Plant them 10-18 inches
apart, and mulch with black
plastic to keep weeds down and
conserve moisture.
Pineapples respond better to
nitrogen . than potassium.
However, some potassium must
be used in most Florida soils.
It is imperative to pick
pineapples that are fully ripe


since pineapples lack a starch
reserve, like some other fruit, so
they will not ripen or get any
sweeter after they are picked.
Tugging at the inner leaves
of the crown to see if one comes
out more easily or thumping
their sides is not an indicator of
ripeness. Rely on the smell.
Ripe pineapples should give off
a good, fresh tropical smell.
Happy gardening!

By GARY TANNER
Associated Press Writer
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -
Country artist Toby Keith said
Wednesday he's forming his
own label, Showdog Records,
to gain more control over his
work.
He's betting he can sell his
music at least as well as others
have in racking up more than
$25 million in sales, 10 plat-
inum albums and 21 No. 1 sin-
gles.
Showdog Records will
record and distribute Keith's
future work. Keith, whose hits
include "How Do You Like Me
Now," "Courtesy of the Red,
White and Blue (The Angry
American)" and "I Love This
Bar," split with Universal
Music Group earlier this sum-
mer.
"It's a pretty big undertaking
with every business lesson I've
ever learned in hand," Keith
told The Associated Press.
Keith is starting Showdog
with former UMG executive
Scott Bordchetta, who also will
operate his own label, Big


Machine Records.
"Probably 75 percent of the
people in this town think I'll
fail, and the other 25 percent
hope I fail," said Keith, who
has had high-profile clashes
with The Dixie Chicks and the
late ABC News anchor Peter
Jennings.
But Keith is optimistic other
artists will want to join his label
after their contracts with others
are up.
"I think we'll'be able to sit
back and watch people jump
over the wall into my nut
house," he said.
Keith said he likes the free-
dom of his own record label.
"We can literally make a deci-
sion at noon and get started by
1 p.m.," he said.
He left Mercury Records in
1999 because he was upset with
the way his music was being
handled. He went to
DreamWorks and became a
superstar. Dreamworks was
acquired last year by Universal
Music Group Nashville, which
has Mercury under its umbrella.

Triploid grass carp can control aquatic plants


Florida's hot cli-
mate provides the
perfect condition for
plant growth. Many
people can attest to
this as plants in local
lakes and ponds are
often in abundance.
The overabundance
of aquatic plants is
often a nuisance and
many people call our
office about aquatic
vegetation removal.
It is important to
keep in mind that
aquatic plants are
beneficial to fish and
wildlife. Aquatic

plants provide cover for young
fish to hide from predators. Fish
eat insects that depend on
aquatic plants are food and
shelter. Aquatic plants also pro-
vide protection from currents
and silt for fish eggs in spawn-
ing nests. Anglers often prefer
to fish near aquatic vegetation
because sport fish use the struc-
ture for shade and camouflage.
In Florida, triploid grass carp
are fish used to control aquatic
plants. Triploid grass carp are
artificially produced in hatch-
eries and are functionally ster-
ile. These fish can control cer-
tain aquatic plans in moderate
or small sized lakes. Using
grass carp to control aquatic
plants is a relatively inexpen-
sive solution ($20 to $250 per


acre). In private
ponds, golf course
ponds, irrigation
ditches and similar
locations, where
sport fishing is not
the primary activity,
stocking triploid
grass carp can be an
environmentally
FROM sound, cost-effective
way of controlling
E aquatic plants.
SHED Grass carp are
actually a member of
Donze the minnow family.
This is hard to
believe considering
that grass carp grow
to an average of 15 to 20
pounds and 20 to 35 inches in
length! It is possible in larger
lakes with plenty of vegetation
for grass carp to reach 50
pounds. The largest reported
grass carp in Florida weighed
75 pounds!
In 1972, biologists experi-
mentally stocked lakes with
grass carp in an effort to control
hydrilla. As it turns out, grass
carp are especially effective at
controlling hydrilla.
At low stocking rates (two to
five fish per acre), it can take
six months to a year before
plants begin to noticeably
decrease in abundance.
Oftentimes people will stock
more fish in a lake resulting in
"overstocking."


Grass carp have been known
to eat every single plant, includ-
ing beneficial plants, in a water-
body when overstocked. Native
fish populations rely on plants
for food, shelter and spawning
habitat. This condition will gen-
erally last awhile because grass
carp can live for 10 or more
years. The older they get, the
bigger they get and the more
they will consume. Moreover,
grass carp outsmart all attempts
of capture making them impos-
sible to remove from waterbod-
ies. Nets, hook-and-line, elec-
tro-shocking, even poison baits
were only minimally success-
ful, especially after the first
application.
The good news is grass carp
are an excellent, long term low
cost solution for control if your
goal is .to remove all aquatic
vegetation in a small urban
pond were submersed vegeta-
tion is not as imperative for fish
habitat.
If you are considering using
grass carp to control aquatic
vegetation in your lake or pond,
you also should be aware of
another negative effect grass
carp may have on water clarity.
If grass carp are stocked in high
enough numbers, there is a
potential for a lake to change
from a clear-water plant-domi-
nated system to a murky algae-
dominated system.
How does this happen?


When open-water algae (phyto-
plankton) do not have to com-
pete with larger plants for nutri-
ents, the algae soon become the
dominant plants in the system.
The clarity of the water can be
significantly reduced within
Weeks or months. Also, aquatic
plants serve as stabilizers for
bottom sediments and once
removed, the potential is
increased for sediments to
become resuspended into the
water column (especially in
shallow lakes).
Stocking triploid grass carp
in private ponds requires a per-
mit from the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, and
it is illegal to possess any grass
carp without a permit. You can
contact the FWC office for
more information (863-648-
3203) or visit its Web site for
online permit applications
(http://myfwc.com/fishing/per-
mits/carp.html).

Whale uses fish to catch seagulls


Associated Press
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario
- An enterprising young killer
whale at an aquarium has
apparently figured out how to
use fish as bait to catch seagulls
- and shared his strategy with
his fellow whales.
Michael Noonan, a professor
of animal behavior at Canisius
College in Buffalo, made the
discovery by accident while
studying orca acoustics.
First, the young whale spit
regurgitated fish onto the sur-
face of the water, then sank


below the water and waited.
If a hungry gull landed on the
water, the whale would surge
up to the surface, sometimes
catching a free meal of his own.
Noonan watched as the same
whale set the same trap again
and again.
Within a few months, the
whale's younger half brother
adopted the practice.
Eventually the behavior spread
and now five Marineland
whales supplement their diet
with fresh fowl, the scientist
said.

RESEARCH



Breast enhancers

Pills, creams, devices are out there with promises
of increased cup sizes, but do they work?


By STEPHANIE ALLMON
Cox News Service
WACO, Texas - Little girls
in the 1980s thought they'd
found a secret exercise that
would save them from a flat-
chested puberty and an under-
developed adulthood.
Hands clasped in front of the
chest, elbows out, they'd
squeeze their hands together,
repeating, "I must, I must, I
must increase my bust." They'd
do it behind closed doors at
slumber parties and in front of
the TV during "Punky
Brewster," who herself prac-
ticed it a time or two on the
show.
Those little girls are all
grown up now. And whether or
not their chests grew up with
them, they can now fill their
medicine cabinets with dozens
of so-called "natural" breast-
enhancement products.
Infomercials and Web sites
tout creams, sprays, pills and
even special bras that promise
to lift, expand, firm and smooth
women's breasts. They have
names like MiracleBust, Small
Breast Solutions, Natural
Curves, Bloussant, Vanity,
Quick Bust, Perfect Woman,
Breast Assure and BRAVA.
Many are packed with such
trendy herbs as ginseng, dami-
ana, black cohosh and forms of
the female hormone estrogen.
While some of the products
- can make a noticeable differ-
ence, doctors caution that their
safety is questionable and, in
some cases, could be danger-
ous.
"Some of these things do
show promise," said Dr. Tony
Dunn, an obstetrician-gynecol-
ogist at the Scott & White
Clinic in Waco. "A lot of herbs
have come from years of expe-
rience in Eastern medicine and
have been anecdotally shown,
for example, to decrease
menopausal symptoms in
women. But these things on the
market - I'm not aware of any
reports of patients who have
had problems. But I'm also not
aware of any data beneficial to
long-term help."
The reason Dunn has to
hedge when people ask him
about breast enhancers, he said,
is that herbal products are clas-
sified as "dietary supplements"
and are not tested or regulated
by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration.
According to the 1994
Dietary Supplement Health and
Education Act, supplements do
not need to undergo the rigor-
ous tests of safety and effective-
ness that pharmaceutical drugs
do. The act also allows the
unrestricted sale of some com-
pounds not ordinarily found in
the diet, as long as they come
from "natural" sources.
"The whole point is that the
FDA doesn't regulate these, so
they basically close their eyes
to it," Dunn said. "If someone
takes an herbal preparation that
has not been tested . . . they
really don't know what they're
getting."
Some breast-enhancing
products actually contain ingre-
dients that the FDA has warned
against. For example, Breast
Assure, which promotes "firm-
looking breasts" contains kava
kava, an herbal relaxant and
sleep aid that has been linked to
liver failure. Britain's Control
Council has called for the
removal of kava kava from
stores, and the FDA is investi-
gating in the United States.
Many breast-enhancing pills
and lotions contain forms of
estrogen, a female hormone.
However, studies have linked
increased estrogen levels with
an increased risk of breast can-
cer.


Health authorities say
women should be very
cautious about using
products sold over the
Internet or on TV to
increase bust size.



Breast-enhancing pills called
Quick Bust contain plant estro-
gens called phytoestrogens,
which, according to product
information, "stimulate your
body to produce new breast tis-
sue growth."
Similarly, Vanity pills use
phytoestrogens, which "fool
your body into thinking th"at:
estrogen has been introduced,"
according to the company. "By
mimicking the effects of estro-
gen, your body reacts in a way
similar to experiencing puberty,
and glandular tissue is built up
within the breast receptor
sites."
Product information urges
women who do not see results
within 30 days to up the dosage
of Vanity to six, seven or eight
tablets a day.
Dunn said it is not known
whether 4phytoestrogens are
safer than synthetic or natural
estrogens that can cause the
growth of estrogen-sensitive
tumors.
"The theory it works on is


that women, when they take
estrogen or are in a hyperestro-
genic state (are pregnant or
nursing, for example), some
breast enlargement occurs," he
said. "After pregnancy, most
don't retain that growth. People
have been looking for years to
see if they can apply estrogen
cream to make breasts bigger,
but none of that stuff has been
shown to be effective long.
term."
Janna Beatty, a Waco image
consultant and owner of Image
Enhancers, laughed when she
first read about the BRAVA sys-
tem. She said so-called "natu-
ral" breast enhancers started
being widely marketed about
eight years ago, and they are
appealing to some women for
several reasons.
First, women found their
way in the working world,
which stripped down their fem-
ininity, she said. Then it became
necessary for them to "reclaim"
their femininity, including their
curves.
In the fashion world, the sig-
nals are mixed. Big breasts go
in and out of style.
If women want to enhance
their breasts solely for appear-
ance' sake, Beatty said, they
might just need to wear a differ-
ent bra that helps give them
shape. Different types of
padding and gel or liquid-filled
bras can enhance and shape
breasts externally, she said.

National Guardsmen

pour into New Orleans


By ALLEN G. BREED
Associated Press Writer
NEW ORLEANS - Four
days after Hurricane Katrina
struck, the National Guard
arrived in force Friday with
food, water and weapons,
churning through the floodwa-
ters in a vast truck convoy with
orders to retake the streets and
bring relief to the suffering.
"The cavalry is and will con-
tinue to arrive," said Lt. Gen.
Steven Blum of the National
Guard.
At the New Orleans
Convention Center, some of the
thousands of storm victims
awaiting their deliverance
applauded, threw their hands
heavenward and screamed,
"Thank you, Jesus!" as the
camouflage-green trucks and
hundreds of soldiers arrived.
"Lord, I thank you for get-
ting us out of here," said
Leschia Radford.
But there was also anger and
profane catcalls.
"Hell no, I'm not glad to see
them. They should have been
here days ago. I ain't glad to see
'em. I'll be glad when 100
buses show up," said 46-year-
old Michael Levy, whose words
were echoed by those around
him yelling, "Hell, yeah! Hell
yeah!"
"We've been sleeping on the
..ground like rats," Levy said.
"I say burn this whole ... city
down."
The military said its first.pri-
ority was delivering food and
water, after which it would
begin evacuating people -
something that could take days.
"As fast as we can, we'll


move them out," said Army Lt.
Gen. Russel Honore. "Worse
things have happened to
America," he added. "We're
going to overcome this, too. It's
not our fault. The storm came
and flooded the city."
With a cigar-chomping gen-
eral in the vanguard, the trucks
rolled through muddy water up
to their axles to reach the con,
vention center, where 15,000 to
20,000 hungry and desperate
refugees had taken shelter -
many of them seething with
anger so intense that it seemed
ready to erupt in violence at any
moment.
Camouflage-green flatbed
trucks carried huge crates, pal-
lets and bags of relief supplies.
Soldiers sat in the backs of
open-top trucks, their rifles
pointing skyward.
Moments later, New Orleans
Police Superintendent Eddie
Compass rode down the street
on the running board of a box
truck and announced through a
bullhorn: "We got 30,000 peo-
ple out of the Superdome and
we're going to take care of
you," he said to thunderous
applause.
"We've got food and water
on the way. We've got medical
attention on the way. We're
going to get you out of here
safely. We're going to get all of
you," he said.
As he came down the road,
elderly people gave thanks and
some nearly fainted with joy.
Compass also warned that if
anyone did anything disruptive,
the troops would have to they
would have to stop distributing
the food and \ water and get out.

Peace River Electric Cooperative urges

customers to conserve electricity


The future of natural
gas supplies is
uncertain at the
moment

WAUCHULA - Peace River
Electric Cooperative is urging
its members and customers to
conserve electric usage in the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The Florida Reliability
Coordinating Council has
warned Seminole Electric
Cooperative that natural gas
shortages are expected to con-
tinue. Seminole Electric is
PRECO's wholesale energy
supplier.
Rolling blackouts could be
expected.
The natural gas shortage for
generating plants in Florida is a
direct result of Hurricane
Katrina shutting down natural
gas production facilities in the
Gulf of Mexico and severely
damaging many of the gas
refinery plants along the Gulf
Coast.


The FRCC region receives
most of its natural gas from
production directly from the
facilities located in the Gulf.
As a result of the lost produc-
tion of oil and gas from this
region, Seminole Electric and
other electric generating plants
may lack the natural gas supply
to produce enough electricity to
meet customer demand.
Bill Mulcay, PRECO's chief
executive officer and general
mariager, said the national gas
shortage is a real concern for
the state and the cooperative. It
is not known when natural gas
production will resume at its
pre-hurricane levels, he said.
The shortage could be serve,
Mulcay cautioned, and may last
several weeks.
Mulcay also expressed con-
cern about the growing short-
age of gas at the pump.
"Our electric cooperative is
working to secure fuel to keep
its fleet of line and service
trucks going for normal busi-
ness operations," he said.


Brad Kimbro, PRECO's vice
president of marketing and
member services, said "Even
the smallest efforts to conserve
would help the situation."
PRECO recommends reduc-
ing the use of air conditioning
in the afternoon or setting ther-
mostats at 2 degrees higher
than normal.
According to PRECO,
Seminole Electric has enough
natural gas and fuel oil to last
through the Labor Day week-
end, but future supplies are
uncertain.
The severity of the damage
to the rigs and onshore com-
pressor stations located in and
around New Orleans will deter-
mine when natural gas supplies
can be re-established and the
natural gas supply for electric
generation restored.
If you have.questions about
the natural gas shortage or con-
servation practices, call
PRECO at (800) 282-3824 or
visit the Web site at
http://wwwi.preco.com.

Salvation Army mobilizing



to aid hurricane victims


Charity feeding

and sheltering

refugees in New

Orleans, La., and

Mobile, Ala.

SEBRING - The Salvation
Army is currently providing
services to. storm victims and
first responders in Hattiesburg,
Miss., Mobile, Ala., and New
Orleans.
More than 500 refugees have
sought shelter and food at The
Salvation Army's centers in
New Orleans and Mobile.
Canteens are serving hot
meals to storm victims and first
responders in Hattiesburg and
Mobile.
Additional canteens are
being staged in Baton Rouge,
La., Jackson, Miss., and
Mobile. They will be deployed
to affected areas along the Gulf
Coast once emergency response
authorities determine that they
can be entered safely.
The Salvation Army is pre-
pared to serve up to 500,000 hot
meals per day to residents and


first responders in the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina.
More than 250 volunteers,
employees and officers will
serve the meals from approxi-
mately 100 mobile canteens
that are able to provide up to
5,000 hot meals per day.
.In addition, the Army has
staged two, 54-foot mobile
Base Camp kitchens that can
provide 20,000 hot meals per
day. One is in Baton Rouge; the
other in Mobile. They will be
moved once emergency
response authorities determine
a safe location for them.
The Salvation Army's
Emergency Radio Network
SATERN, an acronym that
stands for Salvation Army
Team Emergency Network, is
receiving inquiries concerning
the health and welfare of loved
ones affected by Hurricane
Katrina.
SATERN, which works
closely with the Hurricane
Watch Net and the Maritime
Mobile Net, garners reports
from their net frequencies and
stands ready to handle emer-
gency communications from


the affected areas as the hurri-
cane prepares to make landfall.
The SATERN organization
utilizes the input and help of
These traditional emergency
organizations, along with the
help of countless individual
operators, who provide ines-
timable expertise and logistical,
strategic intelligence to the
overall operation.
Individuals seeking informa-
tion about loved ones in the dis-
aster areas may register an
inquiry online at
http://www.satern. org.
Those wishing to help the
hurricane victims can visit the
Web site at http://www.salva-
tionarmyusa.org, call 1-800-
SAL-ARMY or visit any Wal-
Mart or Sam's Club.
Monetary donations are
encouraged at this time to help
meet victims' most immediate
needs.
A $100 donation will feed a
family of four for two days,
provide two cases of drinking
water and one household clean-
up kit, containing brooms,
mops, buckets, and cleaning
supplies.

Since the dawn of the technological age, the United
States has been on the cutting edge.
From Thomas Edison's inventions through the space
and nuclear races, few nations have been able to compete
with good old -American ingenuity. Even as far back as
Eli Whitney's cotton gin and Robert Fulton's work with
steam engines, American science had few rivals.
In the new global scheme, however, the United States
is losing ground. This not orly creates a loss of our place
as inventors, but also a loss of our place as ethical lead-
ers in an increasingly controversial scientific world.
Ethical leadership is vitally important as the world'
moves into areas such as cloning and stem-cell research.

If the United States is to maintain its position not only
as a military superpower but as a technological leader,
scientific innovation must be encouraged at the highest
levels.

An editorial excerpt from the Daily Times-Call,
Longmont, Colo.

Katrina's too genteel a name for the calamity that
struck the Gulf Coast. In the hours and days ahead, peo-
ple from Alabama to Texas will have to pull together
with uncommon courage.
State and federal governments must lead the way.
Homeland Security was created in part to coordinate the
work of federal agencies such as the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. The new department performed
well in the evacuation. But the harder work lies ahead.
President Bush has pledged aid to the vast areas affect-
ed by this storm. The price tag could top $20 billion. The
cost must not deter neither the president nor the
Congress. And both must deal with the inevitable impact
on oil prices from this storm, which disabled Gulf Coast
refineries. ..
It has taken south Florida years to recover from 1992's
Hurricane Andrew. Katrina might not have quite that
impact. But it surely was storm enough to evoke our
sympathy and new commitments from government.

An editorial excerpt from The Democrat & Chronicle,
Rochester, N. Y

Drug companies develop their products with the pub-
lic's welfare in mind. America is dependent on the phar-
maceutical industry to provide pills and medicines to
alleviate pain and suffering, vaccines that prevent disease
and drugs that help the body heal.
Americans demand drugs that help them feel better
and live a more productive, longer life.
An element of risk sometimes accompanies the use of
specific drugs. It js important for companies to under-
stand what negative side effects may result from their
products and present the information clearly and accu-
rately to consumers and their doctors. In deciding
whether to market a product, companies must wisely
weigh the potential dangers against the benefits.
If the consumer understands the risks of a product that
is on the market, then he or she can make a decision
based on a doctor's advice.
In the recent case involving Vioxx, in which a Texas
man died in 2001 after taking 'the painkiller made by
Merck, the company was accused of knowing the poten-
tial heart risks but not telling the public. ...
If the company was clearly wrong, it should pay a rea-
sonable penalty. If there is reasonable doubt, yet Merck
is being pursued by litigation attorneys sensing the com-
pany is vulnerable, that is another matter.
Such cases are not always cut and dried. A society that
depends heavily on medicinal drugs should be careful
not to unfairly penalize companies that provide them.
When that happens, everyone suffers.

An editorial excerpt from The Watertown (N. Y) Daily
Times.

When Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her
retirement from the Supreme Court, the expectation in
Washington was: bloodbath to follow. This was the first
vacancy in 11 years, and President Bush's first chance to
reshape the court according to his preferences. It was
assumed he would pick someone who would make liber-
als blanch. ...
But Bush let the air out of that balloon by choosing a
nominee less notable for his ideology than for his distin-
guished legal credentials and equable manner. John
Roberts served under Presidents Ronald Reagan and
George H.W. Bush, leaving little doubt of his conserva-
tive views. Still, even many liberals were hard-pressed to
find fault with someone known as one of the nation's
premier Supreme Court advocates, who easily won
Senate approval when he was nominated to a federal
appeals court.
It's too early to say Roberts deserves confirmation.
The hearings are bound to bring to light information that
bears on his suitability for the court. A serious, dignified
and open-minded examination of the John Roberts who.
will emerge from the hearings would be a boon to public
understanding, to the reputation of the Senate and to the
standing of the Supreme Court.


But that may be asking too much.

selfishness, I'm not just talking
about it in a material sense: I'm
talking about it in reference to
what is better known as self-
centeredness.
You may have heard the old
joke about the difference
between major and minor sur-
gery. In case you haven't, the
punch line is, "your surgery is
minor; mine is major." Left
unchecked, we can decide we
are the most important beings

exists solely for us.

Consumers are

being ripped off

Editor:
Pertaining to all of the flap
over the price of gasoline here
in America.
These big greedy oil corpo-
rations know that if they can
get from $3 - $5 per gallon in
Europe, they can get that price
over here.
I look for gasoline to climb
to $5 per gallon here in the
United States in the not too far
off future.
The solution is an alternative
fuel source, or an alternative
means of transportation.
Mass-transit, ethanol alcohol
fuel, hydrogen fuel, or electric
powered vehicles.
Of course, we will never see
this until the big greedy oil cor-
porations have taken control of
these sources of fuel, just as
they have taken control of the
fossil fuel source, so that they
can continue making their
multi-billion dollar profit every
year, this is Capitalism in oper-
ation.
No one, or any corporation is
worth billions of dollars, which
proves that the big oil corpora-
tions are ripping off the con-
sumers.
The commuter vehicle cars
were on the right track, they
just needed a little more engi-
neering perfection to make
them more efficient, but the
owners would never listen to
anyone else's ideas or sugges-
tions.
Of course, our politicians are
all bought off by the big oil cor-
porations to curtail any thought
of this.
So you will never see this on
a nationwide scale, it will have
to come about by private indi-
viduals putting their brains to
work and perfecting it on their
own.
And the D.O.T. (Department
of Transportation) will have to
lower the restrictions on motor
vehicles, if they aren't already
bought off to curtail any devel-
opment of these vehicles.
Think about that.

Tips for saving

gas in your auto

Editor:
Ten ways to cut your gas use
in your car!
1. Fill up when it's cool, you
get more gas. (Gas expands
when hot.)
2. Check air in tires.
3. Use vent instead of air at
night and when it's cool.
4. New plugs and air filter.
5. One long trip instead of a
lot of short trips.


worst thing anyone has had to
endure. If someone else has a
problem, theirs is worse. "I" is
the letter of the alphabet they
like the most.
I'm not saying people don't
have problems. Nor am 1 saying
there aren't times that people
have horrific things happen to
them. I am suggesting some-
times we are very good at mak-
ing mountains out of molehills,
and sometimes we aren't as bad
off as we think we are.
I know every once in a while
I am tempted to lapse into this
kind of self-pity and selfish-
ness. All humans have times
like this. Sometimes we need a
virtual 2x4 between the eyes to
be reminded of how blessed we
are. Today, the 2x4 has a name:
Katrina.

Bush has not

just failed
Editor:
Impeach Bush: I agree ... and
for these reasons.
President Bush has had near-
ly five years in office to honor
his oath of office and enforce
immigration laws in this coun-
try.
He has not only failed, he
has intentionally neglected this
sworn duty, instead claiming he
prefers to promote a vague
immigration "reform" plan that
involved a "guest worker" pro-
gram that has served as an
encouragement to the most
massive influx of illegal immi-
gration this country has ever
seen.
Some will tell me this can't
be done and that it is irrespon-
sible to propose it because
Bush is a wartime president.
My response? It is precisely
because this nation finds itself
in a desperate war declared by a
formidable foe determined to
use our open borders to destroy
this country that we must act
now.
On the border, Bush has
been a disaster. No matter how
successful we might be in our
campaigns in Iraq and
Afghanistan, we can lose this
war against jihadist Islam right
here at home.
Our enemies have already
used the open border to pene-
trate this country - and they


are standing on roofs, their
houses underwater, waiting for
rescue. Most if not all of New
Orleans is underwater and may
be uninhabitable for months.
People have lost loved ones.
Possessions. Jobs. Their lives
have been upended and there is
no one who has a clear idea of
when (or if) their lives will
'resume normalcy. As of
Wednesday night, there still
might be 100,000 trapped.
Cholera and typhoid - two dis-
eases almost unheard of in this
country - are real threats in the
affected areas.
And us? Yeah, it's hot. And
gas prices are going up - a lot.
OK. But we have homes to take
refuge in and drinkable water to
quench our thirst. And at least
most of us who are griping
about the gas prices have cars to
put the gas in and roads we can


will do so again.
When Bush placed the. old
Immigration and Naturalization
Service under the new
Department of Homeland
Security, I actually believed he
recognized how critical border
security was to the defense of
our homeland. I was fooled.
Al-Qaida operatives have
already used the open Mexican
border not only to sneak opera-
tives into the country but to
smuggle in nuclear weapons
with the help of the MS-13
(Mara Salvatrucha) street gang.
The fuse has been lit.
The war in Iraq, which I
have supported, will mean little
when, not if, a nuclear weapon
is detonated inside our own
country.
When that happens, we will
no longer be having debates
about who has more culpability
for Sept. 11 - Bush or his
predecessor. Bush has had
ample opportunity to address
the mistakes of the past.
Instead, he has'repeated them.
They say hindsight is 20-20.
Not for Bush.
Even if the border issue and
the tsunami of illegal immigra-
tion was not strictly speaking
the No. 1 national security
issue we face, enforcing the
laws of the land would be the
right thing to do - the only
moral and right thing to do.
Americans are dealing with
more joblessness, higher crime,
skyrocketing taxes, a crippled
medical system, overcrowded
jails, an overburdened judicial
and law enforcement system,
costly and divisive language
barriers and changing demo-
graphics that are permanently
transforming the U.S. culture.
Why?
Bush claims it is because
America needs cheap labor.
That's what the law of supply
and demand is all about. It's not
his duty or responsibility to
acquire workers for big corpo-
rations and other fat cats below


'It is pointless to support only free speech for people

who agree with you. It is not only unprincipled to

want that, but also self-defeating. For your own

God for the blessings you have,
do something. Write a check.
Donate blood. Ask what you
can send to our fellow
Americans who are in such dire
circumstances.
And if you can't do anything
for them, look around
Highlands County. Smile at
someone. Hold a door open for
another person. Pick up some
trash on the side of the road.
Help the person behind you at
the checkout unload their shop-
ping cart.
The best cure for self-cen-
teredness is to direct our atten-
tion to someone instead of us.
It's amazing how small our
problems become when we do.

what the market will support.
I don't even believe Bush is
being honest when he makes
this argument. I am convinced
there are international agree-
ments behind this. I am per-
suaded the systematic destruc-
tion of the American way of
life through uncontrolled and
illegal immigration is part of a
master plan for merger and
global consolidation - first
with our neighbors in this
hemisphere and later world-
wide.
This secretive plot must end
here and now.
America was founded on the
principle of independence and
sovereignty. The president is
betraying our most sacred
national heritage.
Bush is ignoring the will of
the people and he is violating
the law of the land.
It's time to turn up the heat.
Will even one courageous
Republican 'member of
Congress have the guts to spon-
sor a bill of impeachment?
They will, if they hear from
you!

Robertson is in

White House

Editor:
I enjoyed reading Will
Durst's article, Cry "havoc"
and let slip the gods of war.
Not many people know that
our president has been seek-
ing spiritual direction from Pat
Robertson.
At least one thing good
came from Robertson's
Freudian slip, true Christians.
are speaking up against him.
Cal Thomas advises Christians
to stop making him rich and
give the money to their local
churches where it will do some
good.
How Bush reacts to
Robertson after this will be
interesting. In the past he has
reacted to the blunders of his
staff by promoting them.
We know Bush has been
implementing fundamentalist
theories of our beginnings-
Creationism the new science,
and intelligent design, divine
intervention. Will Robertson
be put in charge of
Armageddon?
Robertson lost his own bid

JAN MEROPI
i


Writers Conference in the '90s,
I had the distinct privilege of
meeting the man who had
founded the Amy Foundation
and initiated the awards pro-
gram.
Jim Russell was a successful
entrepreneur. He believed that
though America was an evan-
gelized nation, it needed to
become a discipled nation; that
is, growing in its understanding
of the Word of God and the
impact it would have on one's
life when applied. He believed
writers could be part of helping
redeem our culture. So he set
out to encourage them.
Consequently, the Amy
Writing Awards was "designed
to recognize creative, skillful
writing that presents in a sensi-
tive, thought-provoking manner
the biblical position on issues
affecting the world today."
Those articles would be printed

in secular publica-
tions and appropri-
alely quote at least
one passage ofl
Scri ptluc.
.That year at thie
writers' conference, I
took Mr. Russell's
class on discipleship.
Later we talked a
while and lie helped
me to see that any
biblical Itruth impart-
ed is a discipline tool.


It energized my writing.
At the conference, I had the
opportunity to enter one of my
published columns in a contest
sponsored by Mr. Russell. How
thrilled I was to win. But, more
than that, Jim Russell's warmth
and sincerity encouraged me to
keep on keeping on - even
later becoming an Amy Internet
Syndicate columnist for several
years.
Over the years, I was blessed
with several Amy Writing
Awards. But, greater still has
been the joy and honor of Mr.
Russell's willingness to write
the Foreword in my book.
"Pause ... and Consider,
Keeping in step with life while
in tune with heaven ~ Selah."
Ever the encourager, he made
me feel that he was the one
being honored - rejoicing in
the publication of the book as if
it were his own.

Audible seals win for Avon Park


Rafael Johnson's

call allows Devils

to run out clock

By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - Coaches
may be paid to make the big
decisions, but they're not the
ones on the field.
Friday night, it was a player
who made arguably the most
important play call for the
Avon Park Red Devils in their
13-7 win over Okeechobee at a
rain-soaked Joe Franza
Stadium.
Avon Park With less than
13 two minutes left
1 in the game; the
Okeechobee Devils faced a
7 fourth and 10 at
the Brahmans
Up Next 36 and lined up
Devils at Fort to punt. But
Meade Miners Rafael Johnson,
on Friday lined up as the
protector in
front of the punter, saw some-
thing the coaches didn't. He
called an audible, taking the
snap and throwing a quick
pass to Bo Comadore, who
picked up 11 yards and a first
down that allowed the Devils
to run out the clock.
"I saw that the left was wide
open ... so I just threw it," said
Johnson, who played a superb
game on defense. "If it would-
n't have went right, coach
would have been on me, but I
had a feeling it would (go
right) so I called it."
Head coach T.C. Cousins


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Red Devils Rafael Johnson (3) and Justin Roberts combine to sack Okeechobee quarterback Virgil
Barrett for a 10-yard loss in the third quarter of Friday's game.


heaped praise on the senior
defensive back and receiver on
the sidelines after the play and
in the locker room after the
game.
"It's automatic that if some-
one is uncovered to throw it
out there," Cousins said. "I had
my head down looking at my
play sheet, and I heard every-
body start yelling and I looked
up and saw him throwing the
ball and was like, 'What the
heck is he doing?' But that's


what he's coached to do and he
did what he's coached to do.
"He called it and it worked
and it sealed the game for us.
We didn't want to give them
the ball back. We didn't have
one of those last-minute,
they're throwing the ball 80
yards down the field kind of
games. I hate those. That's
how our JV lost (Thursday)
night and I didn't want that.
"Their coach came over
after the game and said,


'Coach, that was a heck of a
call on that fake punt,' and I
said, 'I wish I could take cred-
it for it."'
Johnson's heads-up play
may have sealed the deal, but
it was a big night from running
back Kaneef Caldwell that
made the most difference for
the Devils (2-0) as he rushed
for 123 yards on 16 carries,
scoring one of Avon Park's

Barben, Cornuet

tied for lead at

County Amateur
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING - Civic pride is on the line at
the County Amateur.
Recent Sebring High School graduate
Matt Coruet is tied with Avon Park High
School golf coach Bobby Barben atop the
open division after both shot 72 in the first
round at Harder Hall on Saturday, and Lake
Placid resident Randy Proctor is just one
shot back entering the final round today.
"I like my chances," said Proctor, search-
ing for his first win in the event. "I feel like
I have as good a chance as anyone, up
there."
The battle may be as much between
youth and experience as it is geographic
location, as Coruet aims to turn back vet-
eran Barben, a multi-time champion at the
event, and 46-year-old Proctor, a regular at
the event for almost a decade.

AVON PARK - If you're
looking for a good excuse to
get out for a round of golf this
month, River Greens has one
for you.
Throughout September, the
club will donate a portion of
all greens fees to the Red
Cross in an effort to help vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina.
Head pro Jason Beatty said
he came up with the idea and
got approval from club own-
ers Rodney and Lisa Davis. -
"We're going to start doing
it from Sept. 1; we'll back-
track," Beatty said Friday.
"We hope to get some support
because I know the people
who were affected by the hur-
ricane can sure use some
help. If people just want to
give donations, they can do
that, as well."
By the end of the month,


TIME OUT

Chuck Myron


NFL season

to end on

high note

At least now, the NFL's
decision to award the Super
Bowl to Detroit instead of, say,
New Orleans, looks smart.
But really, Los Angeles isn't
a hurricane-prone city, and is
one of just many places I'd
rather be in February than a
rotting Michigan ghetto. Still,
unless I hit the lottery or get a
series of unforeseen promo-
tions between now and the
Super Bowl, I could care less
where it is, because I'm not
going.
Chances are that you, dear
reader, aren't going either, but
I'm writing and you're reading
nonetheless, since the NFL, as
the ratings bear out, is one of
the best television shows
around.
Judging by the on- and off-
field news of late, here's how I
think this year's soap opera
will go:
Sept. 8: Randy Moss gets a
case of the munchies and eats
up the Patriots secondary,
delivering a 12-catch, 147-
yard performance in his debut
for the Raiders, who whip
New England 32-14 in the sea-
soin-opener.
Sept. 18: Terrell Owens
scores an early touchdown
against the 49ers, his former
team, and attempts to spike the
ball on the logo at midfield
before remembering the game
is in Philadelphia. He does it
anyway, dampening a 49-14
Eagles win.
Oct. 3: The Panthers drop to
0-4 after a 38-10 pounding
from Green Bay on Monday
Night Football, prompting
Sports Illustrated, which
picked Carolina to win the
Super Bowl this year, to admit
its editors only favored the
team because baby blue looked
pretty on the cover.
Oct. 16: Ricky Williams
plays sparingly in Miami's 17-
13 win at Tampa Bay, his first
game back from retirement
and a four-game suspension,
but still grabs headlines by
telling reporters after the game
that not only has he quit smok-
ing marijuana, he has given his
entire stash to Moss.
Oct. 30: While his team
loses 20-7 while a mile high at
See NFL, Page 3E


the club is hoping to be able
to write a good-sized check
for the relief efforts.
"I would say were going to
try to raise a couple thousand
(dollars)," Beatty said. "We
don't have a target goal, but
we're going to try to.get it in
the thousands."
Beatty hopes area golfers
can sympathize with the
plight of those in Alabama,
Mississippi and Louisiana
who are suffering through an
aftermath that is even worse
than the Heartland had to deal
with in the wake of last sum-
mer's hurricanes.
"We've recovered nicely
from (last year's hurri-
canes)," he said. "I think it's
going take a little more help
for them. It'll be a good cause
and I hope we can get some
good support."
Call the pro shop at 453-
5210 for more information.

Major League Baseball

Delgado awaits first playoff chance


Associated Press
MIAMI - In terms of num-
bers, this season looks like any
other for Carlos Delgado.
The powerful first baseman
for the Florida Marlins has
eclipsed the 25-homer mark for
the 10th straight season, and is
closing in on what would be his
seventh season of at least 100
RBIs in the last eight years.
This year, however, may end
up having a very different feel for
Delgado. Entering Saturday, he
ranked second on the list of
active players who'd never made
a postseason appearance; his
1,540 games is 15 shy of Jeromy
Buritz, the leader on that list.


And with four weeks left in
the regular season, Delgado's
Marlins find themselves right in
the thick of the playoff chase -
just as he expected when signing
a four-year, $52 million deal with
the club this past offseason.
"I am excited about it, but
you've got to keep things in per-
spective," Delgado said. "You
don't want to run out there crazy,
like a chicken with no head.
There's a job to do. There's a lot
at stake, but you can't get caught
up in the emotion."
The Marlins entered Saturday
5 1/2 games behind Atlanta in the
NL East; those teams play six
times in the final nine days of the


regular season. And Florida also
entered the weekend 1 1/2 games
back of Philadelphia in the wild-
card race.
Starting with their current
series against the New York
Mets, 25 of Florida's final 29
games are against divisional
rivals. The remaining four are in
Houston, another team chasing
the wild-card berth.
. "We can't control what the
other teams do," Delgado said.
"One thing that we have going
for us, or against us depending
how you look at it, is that we're
playing teams in our division and
teams that are in the wild-card
race."


SCOTr DRESSEL/News-Sun
Kaneef Caldwell breaks loose from an Okeechobee defender for a big run Friday night for Avon Park.


SEALS
Continued from 1E
touchdowns.and setting up the
other.
Four straight carries for 32
yards on Avon Park's second
possession of the game set up
James Young's 11-yard touch-
down run that gave Lhe Devils
the lead, and his 52-yard run on
the.. .first play . following
Okeechobee's (1-1) lone touch-
down gave the Devils the lead
back late in the third quarter.
"That big run by Kaneef was
huge," Cousins said. "Our
defense played huge. They had
one letdown (a 74-yard recep-
tion by Rashad Kelly on a third-
and-10 play that set up the
Brahman's TD), but they
played a heck of a game.
"Offensively, we had trouble
keeping momentum. We did
some good things at times. We
couldn't throw the ball well in
the driving rain storm, obvious-
ly, but when you can't throw it
you've got to be able to run it.


TIME
Continued from 1E
Wilson, who got the start at
QB for the first time this sea-
son, was 7-for-ll passing for
116 yards and a touchdown, and
also picked up two huge fourth-
down conversions in the final
minutes to allow Sebring to get
within six points.
"A.C. did a phenomenal
job," Hamlin said. "He only had
one day, really, to prepare and
didn't throw a pass all week.
But we let him run the football
some and he did a phenomenal
job, -and the offensive line as
well."
Palmetto started out the same
way it had in their season open-
er, pounding the middle and
gaining huge chunks of yards
on the ground. Three Tiger run-
ning backs had runs of 10 yards
or more on the drive, gaining
three first downs in the process.
Damien Gilbert then punched it
in from the 9-yard line on the
seventh play of the drive to go
up 7-0.
That lead grew during the
home team's next possession
after Sebring went three-and-
out. Starting at their own 37-
yard line, quarterback Joe Hills
picked up 36 yards on a bootleg
down the left side, reaching
Sebring's 27. An option on the
next play was stuffed by
Sebring's Ivan Sanders for a
loss of 10, but Palmetto took a
14-point lead when Joe Morris
picked up 37 of his game-high
126 rushing yards, scampering
for a touchdown with four min-
utes remaining in the first quar-
ter.


We ran the ball, we won the
game and we're happy."
Avon Park quarterback T.K.
Hill struggled with the wet con-
ditions, finishing just 4 of 19,
but Okeechobee quarterback
Virgil Barrett struggled even
more with the Johnson and the
Red Devil defense, getting
sacked five times -three of
which Johnson had a hand in -
for a total loss of 46 yards.
Cousins said he didn't know
why Hill had so much trouble
getting a grip on the wet foot-
ball.
"He should have plenty of
practice because it seems like
all we ever do is practice in the
rain, but we need (to work) on
that. He definitely had trouble
throwing it, but we were able to
run the ball."
And, more importantly, the
Devils were able to seal the
deal in the end.
"Like I told the kids, the last
two years all we've done is find
ways to lose games," Cousins
said. "We finally found a way
to win a football game."

The Tigers then took a 21-0
advantage on their next posses-
sion when an 11 play drive was
capped off by another Morris
touchdown run.
Sebring finally managed to
answer to offensive outpour on
the very next drive with 2:44
remaining in the half. Wilson
started the drive hitting wideout
Justin Tomlins6n with a jump
ball between three defenders
and the junior took it 49 yards


to Palmetto's il-yard lipe. Two
plays later, T. J. Williams
punched in Sebring's first score
to make it 21-7.
The Streaks wouldn't score
again until midway through the
fourth quarter. By then
Palmetto had taken an even big-
ger lead, 27-7, on a Hills touch-
down pass.
Sebring's answer started on
Palmetto's 44-yard line after a
short punt and the Streaks used
seven plays to move down the
Palmetto's 13. On third-and-
six, Wilson shared with Sam
Robinson for a 13-yard touch-
down pass to narrow the margin
to 13. Sebring was three-for-
three on third downs during the
drive and 7-for-13 overall.
Sebring found time running
short but started their final drive
after a punt, inheriting the ball
on their own 17 with 3:30 left in
the game. Twice during the
drive, Wilson converted on
fourth down to keep the drive
alive, including a 28-yard
scamper on fourth-and-three to
move down to the Tigers 6-yard
line.
But when quarterback Chris
Welborn connected with Aukee
Daniels in the corner of the end
zone, Sebring fans only found
2.6 seconds remaining on the
clock, which wiped out any
chance for another score.
"I think all of the defensive
backs, and the receivers and the
offensive line did a great job
tonight," Hamlin said. "I'm
very confident. We have to keep
on improving and getting better
and we'll come out and be bet-
ter next week because that's just
the class and the character of
this football team."

ESRB Rating: Mature (17+) (blood and gore,

**** Score: 4 out of 5
Capcom's "Darkwatch" may be a case of
formulaic first-person-shooter (FPS) game-
play but it's a faithful following of the for-
mula and fun because of it. What's more,
the theme is
exceptionally

known as a

law who inadver-
tently unleashes an fiber vampire on the
world in a train robbery gone way south) in

dling the line between good and evil.

Nintendo; Nintendo DS; $29.99
ESRB Rating. Everyone (comic mischief) .
****� Score: 4.5 out of 5
Think Tamagotchi pet hopped-up on
goofballs and you've got "Nintendogs,"
interactive pet simulators with puppies
that manage to come off as unbearably
cute as the real things.
Offered in three versions including
"Chihuahua & Friends," "Dachshund &
Friends" and "Lab & Friends," each is
identical in content and gameplay save for
the initial group of puppies available; the
rest are unlockable as you progress.
To "play" "Nintendogs" is a novel affair


your character's course of action:
righteous, gun-toting, Darkwatch
deputy and bane of all things evil
and/or undead, maniacal embrac-
er of supernatural vampire
magic, or flip-flopping blender of
both methodologies.
The more you use your guns (and
eventually, your rocket-launcher, of
course), the better they get, and
the better you get at using them.
The more you employ your
hands-on feeding-frenzy
prowess, the more mojo you
develop as a narcissistic vam-
pire: Do a bit of both and you
end up a jack of all butt-kick-
ers, master of neither.
This doesn't change the sto-
ryline much - there's a whop-
ping two available endings and some
costume changes - but you'll be a sat-
isfied blood-sucking gunslinger just the
same.
The game is quite short, ultimately,
but ripe for a sequel or three, which can't
come soon enough. Meanwhile, the Xbox
version has a few online multiplayer
modes for up to 16 players that are as pol-
ished (if likewise formulaic) as the single-
player game, making it a package worth
purchasing. However, the PS2 version has
no online play but it does contain some

you care to teach it.
"Come," "sit," "stay"
"roll over," "don't poop

You can also pet your pup through the
device's touch-sensitive screen, once again
proving that Nintendo has a lock on
bizarre video game innovations. Be fore-

Ready, Peattie: Hurricanes junior


kicker keeping cool demeanor

By TIM REYNOLDS a. ,
Associated Press
CORAL GABLES - Miami
kicker Jon Peattie knows the
history.
No one needs to remind him
how critical field goals have
been in recent years during the
Miami-Florida State series.
Since 1987, theSeminoles have
missed six late field goals
against Miami - four sailing
