Attorney Frank Oberhausen (right) confers with client Ednol Antonio Hanna 17,
(next to Oberhausen) on whether to go to trial Monday on charges connected to a
bank robbery on Jan. 7. Co-defendant Robert Lee Vann, 17, stands beside Hanna,
along with his attorney, Public Defender Steve Knittle (left).

SEBRING - Circuit Court Judge
Olin Shinholser will rule Monday on
whether a key witness can help prosecu-
tors make their presentation in next
week's bank robbery trial.
Also at that time, he'll receive docu-
ments from defense attorneys requesting
to postpone the trial for the sake of 17-
year-old defendants Stepfone Vadle
Buckle Jr. and Ednol Antonio Hanna.
Both' defendants said Thursday they'd
like to wait.
They and codefendants 16-year-old
Samuel Etheredge and 17-year-old
Robert Lee Vann have been charged as
principles in armed robbery with a
firearm and with burglary of a con-
veyance, grand theft of a motor vehicle,
and resisting officers without violence.
The robbery took place Jan. 7 in Avon
Park, and culminated in a chase to Lake
Placid.
A major point of contention in the trial
is prosecution's desire to have Avon-Park
Police Det. Jason Lister, lead investiga-
tor in the case, prepare a PowerPoint
presentation of various documents, pho-
tographs and other pieces of evidence,
then present it at the trial.
Having him sit at the prosecutor's
table would prejudice the case against
their clients, defense attorneys said.


Public Defender Christopher Boldt,
representing 16-year-old Samuel
Etheredge, said it would be better to
have Lister testify first rather than later,
as long as he's not recalled.
Attorneys William D. McNeal, repre-
senting Buckle; Frank Oberhausen, rep-
resenting Hanna; and Public Defender
Steve Knittle, representing Vann, all
agreed.
Assistant State Attorney Joan Hughes
said Lister, as lead investigator, has had
access to reports from every witness.
That includes 40 people - at least 18
from the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, according to sheriff's office civil
records.
Oberhausen said Hughes could find
someone else to help prepare and present
a PowerPoint presentation. If Lister gets
recalled to testify, after hearing other
witnesses' testimony, that would change
their defense, he said.
McNeal still needs to speak with
genetics expert Dr. Gary Litman of
Clearwater. Shinholser advised him to do
so before jury selection at 8:30 a.m.
Monday, a process that could take a
while.
As of Thursday afternoon, the estimat-
ed jury pool was only 60 people, with
several strikes allowed to each attorney
and high publicity surrounding the case.

Highlands,

receiving


Katrina


victims

By PHIL ATFINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Hurricane Katrina has
arrived in Highlands County, in the form
of evacuees.
American Red Cross Service Center
Director Art Harriman said Wednesday
he had helped four families so far, of no
more than four people each. He had sev-
eral more coming in later that day,
including extended families.
"They're not going to be the last of
it," he said.
Needs are so great, he said, the Red
Cross will give a lump sum instead of
individual vouchers, like last year.
Storm victims can then get everything
they need, with the freedom to shop
where they want.
"It's everything," Harriman said. "It's
groceries. It's food. It's clothing. It's
bedding. It's sheets. It's amazing."
For now, relief workers must trust
evacuees to get what they need. Despite
some problems with similar programs
last year, Harriman said people general-
ly spent the funds on what they really
needed.
All he needs is to verify with identifi-
cation, a power or phone bill or other
documents that the people were living in
the area when the storms hit.
Karen Creighton, director of
Emergency Services for the Polk and
Highlands County Chapter of the
American Red Cross, said evacuees
have been arriving in Central Florida for
the past couple of weeks.
Polk County saw no less than 57 fam-
ilies on Tuesday, with more on the way.
"Most are not able to go back," she

and Tracey Stalter prepare to leave for Mississippi Wednesday evening in Sebring.


Deputies move out to Mississippi


J.P. Fane heads to
Florida EOC
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Local law enforce-
ment has sent its first wave of help to
hurricane-battered areas.
Five Highlands County detention
deputies shipped out Wednesday night.
Detention Deputies Shawn Bond, John
Lott, Eric Simpson, Tracey Stalter and
Sgt. Robert Blanchette took off at 7
p.m. Wednesday for a nine- to 10-hour
drive, reportedly to a detention facility
near Gulfport, Miss.
Expecting to be gone two weeks,


they took food, uniforms and equip-
ment. Each man had to have immuniza-
tion shots, plastic gloves, cash and a
change of clothes in an air-tight bag for
decontamination coming back into
Florida, Sheriff Susan Benton said.
Also, George Whitehurst of
Commercial Communications donated
five Nextel phones to send with them,
she said.
They also brought along another
necessity, Bond said: Off Skintastic
skeeterr spray."
Benton authorized a $21 daily meal
stipend and $2,000 for incidental costs.
The decision to use cash is because
power outages make credit cards use-
less. Cash requires less paperwork for


Federal Emergency Management
Agency reimbursement, Benton said.
Some of the deputies carry military
experience. Bond served four years in
the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp
Lejeune, N.C., with deployments to
Beirut, Lebanon, Grenada, and
Norway. Stalter served as a U.S. Army
corporal for four and a half years in
Germany. Simpson retired in 1996 from
the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division,
2nd Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry
Regiment.
Bond and Stalter also served with the
Florida Department of Corrections.

Love bugs will be thick


Saturday night on Circle


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The first
guests of honor for this week-
end's Love Bug Jubilee appar-
ently now have arrived.
"I saw a couple of love
bugs last Wednesday," Sebring
resident and businessman Jim
Rimer said.
It's the start of the fall infes-
tation of the insects that swarm
throughout the state this time of
year. They are totally harmless
but the love bugs generally
swarm in legion, landing just
about everywhere with many of
the amorous insects winding up
smashed on just about every
available square inch of the
fronts of vehicles.
The first-ever Love Bug
Jubilee will be held Saturday on
the Circle in downtown
Sebring. It is reportedly the first
and only celebration of the love
bug, and members of the local
community are going all out to
honor them.
The Iris and Butterflies gift
shop on the Circle in downtown
Sebring, is the sole distributor
of the Love Bug T-shirts, which
serve as a joint fund-raiser for
the Sebring. Downtown
Merchants and Professional
Association and the Ridge Area
Arc.
"Our goal was to try and pro-
vide an opportunity for local
charities to help fund them-
selves with this festival," said
Barry Foster, who has promot-
ed the idea born on his talk
show on AM730 WWTK.
In fact, it will be Foster's
cohort on FM 99.1 WWOJ,
John Meder, who has been
tapped as the Grand Marshal
for the inaugural event.
"He will be known as 'His
Grand Imperial Bugness,'
Foster said. "And it will be
John's first public appearance
since his car accident."
The Humane Society of
Highlands County is a fixture at
the monthly cruises and will be
there Saturday night. In addi-
tion -there already is a Boy
Scout troop that plans to do a
car wash. ' - . .
"These people really care
about their cars eand, we all
know what the love bug
remains can do to the finish,"
Foster said.
The Early Learning Coalition
plans to set up a booth for fin-
gerprinting for youngsters and
organizers said there is plenty
of room for additional groups


who might want to become
involved.
While there usually is a wide
variety of classic, vintage and
custom cars, trucks and motor-
.cycles that show up for the
event, this time there is expect-
ed to be an abundance of
Volkswagens.
Foster first contracted
a handful of central Florida
clubs and has already received
replies from Sarasota, Fort
Myers and Cape Coral.
The Heartland Volkswagen
Club based in Sebring will be
doing the judging.
It is the Sebring Special
Events Committee that will be
sponsoring the trophies, with a
half dozen to be offered in dif-
ferent classes. The special
events committee, who recent-
ly turned the Sebring Christmas
Parade over to the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, had said it wanted
to become involved in other
projects and jumped in on the
love bug festival almost at the
onset.
"They bought three cases of
love bug deely-boppers -
those are the bug-like antenna
mounted on springs that fit over
peoples heads. We'll be giving
those away Saturday night for
folks who want to be in
our Love Bug Parade," said
Foster. "They also put up $250
for a grand prize for the. 'Sttfff-
a-Bug' contest."
That will be for the group
that is able to stuff the most
people into a classic VW.
Collector James Wilson of Fort
Myers has promised to bring a
1973 VW up for that specific
purpose. The contest is open
to middle and high school aged
youngsters. But like much of
the rest of the event, there still
is an opportunity for other
organizations to get involved.
Estimates of VW involve-
ment have ranged from a dozen
to as many as 100.
But the thing he pointed to
was that the festival was
designed for people to have a
good time.''-
Horse show set

Open Horse Show starting at 9
a.m. Saturday in the 4-H Horse

bound lane, in the midst of
debris and spilled fuel and oil.
He died at the scene.

Millage still at 9.0; County



sees 15 percent increase


Increased land

values hitting

residents hard
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County government didn't have
to tighten its belt to balance the
budget this year.
Not only was there no drop in
revenue, increased property
values have provided enough
new revenue for a 15 percent
increase while staying at 9.0
mills.
That will provide $109.4 for
the general fund and constitu-
tional officer budgets, with
$4.97 million for the special
benefit districts.
This increase comes at a cost,
since 42.8 percent of that was
from property tax, and nearly
all of that growth was from
increased property values.
Nathalie Senecal, 62, said
she and her husband, Norman,
70, had just bought property in
May on Lakeview Drive in.
Sebring, on Lake Jackson. They
had a $3,187 annual tax bill.
Before they could get a
homestead exemption, howev-
er, skyrocketing land prices
pushed their assessment high
enough for a $7,229 tax bill.
With fixed incomes, they'll


have to move as soon as it's
legal for them to do so, she said.
Senecal said she supports
law enforcement, fire services
and schools, but doesn't want to
sell her home to do it.
Likewise, Danny Craig of
Sebring owns 10 rental homes,
and said jumps in assessments
will make it impossible for him,
a reputable landlord, to rent
property to working people,
such as nurses and mid-level
retail managers at rates they can
afford.
"I can quit the business," he
said, "but where's that leave the
renters?"
Only Property Appraiser
Raymond McIntyre can address
this issue, Commissioner Bob
Bullard said. There is an
appeals process. Senecal hopes
it can help her.
Still, Bullard said this is
something the county commis-
sion is investigating.
"We have committed as a
commission, to help with what
you're all talking about,"
Bullard said. "It will be worse
next year."
A possible side effect, Craig
said, could be landlords letting
properties degrade to avoid
higher assessments.

Adding positions
Several departments either


asked for and didn't get, or did-
n't bother asking for new staff.
Commissioners did decide to
add staff, though: A support
staff position ,at the Children's
Advocacy Center with money
the Children's Services Council
has raised from the community.
It cost the county nothing.
However, Bullard suggested
the county should pay for bene-
fits for center director Jeff Roth,
because his salary and benefits
also come from council fund-
raising.
That would use nearly
$20,000 from the county's
reserves. Rick Helms, director
of the Office of Management
and Budget, said the county
could do that, and still have
nearly $1.3 million in reserve,
well more than was there at the
start of the 2004-2005 fiscal
year. *
Assistant County
Administrator Tom Portz said
the county would do better to
hire an extra person with ithe
animal control office, which
has needed extra help for nearly
10 years.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes
moved to have Helms look into
that, as well, and report back on
it at Tuesday morning's work-
shop meeting. All others agreed
except Commissioner Andrew
Jackson, who was absent.

Gas prices cause more trouble mentors/tutors
for older students


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - The volatile
fuel situation does not appear to
be improving, and for many, it
is getting worse.
Companies such as
Intellitran, a provider of acces-
sible and affordable transporta-
tion for the disadvantaged, have
been hit hard by high fuel
prices.
Tim Banks, local Intellitran
general manager, is concerned
about the effects high fuel
prices are having on transporta-
tion for those who need it most.
"Gas prices are out of con-
trol," Banks .said. "Tuesday we
had to trim our services strictly
to medical transportation for
the day."
Future limitations may be
necessary if fuel prices continue
to rise.
"We are locked into our

Group discusses

winemaking
Winemaking will be the sub-
ject of the Highlands Grape
Growers Association meeting
Thursday. The meeting is open'
to all and will be at 7 p.m., at
the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center on U.S. 27 South.
The wine masters will be
George Comer and John
Fridley, both from Putnam
County.
Comer is on the board of the
Florida Grape Growers
Association and is a commer-
cial grape grower and wine
maker since 1978. His large
vineyard provided the grape
vines for five of our members'
vineyards.
Fridley won the first gold
medal for his red wine at the
Florida State Fair in Tampa in,
1996 using Highlands County
grown Muscadine grapes. He
has been making wine since he
lived in Palatka in the '80s. He
is the chief of instrumentation
at Georgia Pacific Paper
Company.
Local wine hobbyists will be
in attendance to help answer
questions also.

$1.43 per mile rates," Banks
said. "We may have to add a
fuel surcharge 'if things don't
change soon."
Classie Transportation and
Hayes Medical Transport are
just two of the local providers
dealing with increased cost.
"Our providers suffer
because they have the cost of
both the fuel and drivers,"
Banks said. "The added
expense hurts."
Local and medical trips will
be taking precedent over far-
flung excursions.
"We are trying to curtail or
combine out-of-town trips,"
Banks said. "Trips to Tampa or
Orlando need to be arranged at
least three days ahead of time."
Combining such trips may be
difficult due to the number of
people using the service.
"We have seen a 50 percent
increase in applications since
the beginning of the year,"
Banks said. "Not everyone is
approved, but we have seen a
significant increase in users."
Many people depend on the
services of these providers

daily. Senior citizens, persons
with disabilities, low income
families and children at risk
need transportation for medical
care, employment, grocery
shopping and other necessary
services.
The efforts to re-open
refineries in the Gulf of Mexico
are proceeding, but have left
many wondering if gas prices
will recover. Over the next few
months, production levels will
be crucial in determining the
time it will take for fuel prices
to drop.
This wait-and-see scenario is
what worries many consumers.
Ashley Miles, a college stu-
dent who travels to visit her
family, is cutting back on her
trips home.
"It is a two-hour drive
home," Miles said. "If prices
don't change, I may only see
my family on holidays."
While local prices remain
hovering around $3, a slight
increase could do serious dam-
age.


Special to the News-Sun
There is a special need at the
high school level for someone
to tutor students in mathemat-
ics within a classroom setting
with active teaching continuing
in the background. A bilingual
volunteer who also speaks
Spanish is particularly needed.
Additionally, there is a need
for someone comfortable with
this age group of students who
in addition to tutoring, would
also be committed to following
through with a mentoring
process..
All tutors are subjected to a
background check.
There is a good deal of need
for high school and middle
school tutors in many subject
areas which here-to-fore have
not been as abundant in num-
bers as have their elementary
school counterparts.
If you are comfortable doing
activities with teenage students
and are flexible, patient and
willing to volunteer, call RSVP

guarantee a price before deliv-
ery.
Two suppliers have been
located that will deliver to the
school district, but the price of
that fuel is not known at this
time.
While there had been some
thought given to curtailing
extracurricular activities,
because of fuel shortages, ulti-
mately, School Superintendent
Wally Cox, decided to continue


with the current school sched-
ule.
According to Wright, most of
the after-school trips at this
time of year are to sporting
events, and they only represent
three to five percent of the over-
'all fuel budget in any case.
For now, therefore, it will be
business as usual.
Wright warned the board that
fuel costs could become a prob-
lem further done the line.

fund-raiser
By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Many people
are willing to jump through
hoops for a cause they believe
in. How many would set them-
selves on fire and dive from a
platform three stories up into
three feet of water?
Mike Dochterman will be
doing just that on Saturday,
Sept. 17, at Wells Dodge
Chrysler in Avon Park.
Everyone is invited to watch
as he takes the plunge at 3 p.m.
Utilizing his remarkable tal-
ents, Dochterman is touring the
United States in a year-long
effort to raise awareness and
funding for cancer research.
LeeAnn Hinskey, a
spokesperson for Wells Dodge
Chrysler, is impressed by
Dochterman's commitment to
raising money for a cure.
"Some people think he is
crazy," Hinskey said. "But if
they had his life experience
they would understand."
After losing his wife to an
aggressive form of cancer,
Dochterman not only raised
their five children, he also made
it his mission to raise money for
cancer research.
As a former Olympic diver,
Acapulco cliff diving champi-
on, stuntman and record holder
for the highest fire dive into
shallow water, Dochterman is
uniquely suited for this type of
fund raising.
There is no charge to attend
the event, but donations are
encouraged.
In addition to the donations

of those in attendance a portion
of the proceeds from each auto-
mobile sale will be donated to
the Highlands Unit of the
American Cancer Society.
Hinskey encourages those
who attend to donate whatever
they can afford.
"These days there is no one
whose life hasn't been touched
by cancer," Hinskey said. "We
have employees who have
struggled with cancer and many
of us have family members that
were lost to the disease."
If you plan to attend the
"Jump for the Cure," make sure
you arrive early.
"This is a unique opportunity
to see something truly fantas-
tic," Hinskey said. "We encour-
age everyone to come out early
to make sure they get a good
view."

Shinholser expects the trial

VICTIMS
Continued from 1A
Several faith-based organi-
zations and emergency man-
agement agencies have bused
people to shelter centers
between Louisiana and Florida,
Creighton said. Some people
have been very creative, she
said, in hitch-hiking or getting
transportation any way they
could.
One Bible camp in Lake
County has become a regional
shelter, with bunks, barracks,
kitchen and air-conditioning
for people arriving within a 14-
county area.
Those who can receive gov-
ernment benefits, such as
Women, Infants and Children
or the Food Stamp programs.
People don't need complete
paperwork, Creighton said, as
long as relief workers can veri-
fy residency in the hurricane
disaster area.
Local school boards have
taken students without shots or
birth certificate information,
Creighton said, under the
homeless clause of Florida
Statutes. Most of those students
are homeless now. It provides
some sense of normalcy,
Creighton said. The sooner kids
are back in school, the sooner
they can begin to recover from
being displaced.
Creighton also has received
calls from pediatricians and
other professionals offering
free services to evacuees.
"Local folks are willing to
do what it takes," Creighton
said.
Florida Red Cross chapters
can still take donations to help
through the national disaster
relief operation, she said. As
always, the American Red
Cross will still make inquiries
to find family members dis-
placed and out of contact
because of the disaster.

Something may come out dur-

Florida Sheriff's Association: Stay prepared


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Local resi-
dents are being warned to stay
ready in case another hurricane
hits central Florida this year.
Local residents are fortunate.
Highlands County, despite hav-
ing three hurricanes brush the
county in 2004, was praised by
the Florida Division of
Emergency Management for
having one of the best response
systems to disaster.
In the wake of Hurricane
Katrina, congress is looking
into how to improve national
emergency response. When
asked, Gary Perkins, executive
director of the Florida Sheriff's
Association, admitted to a cer-
tain amount of Floridian bias,
but said Florida's disaster pre-
paredness and emergency
response could easily become a
model for national response.
"Unfortunately, we've had a
lot of practice," he said.
"Unfortunately, we know the
drill."
Floridians have dealt with
hurricanes since the earliest
inhabitants first hunted here.
Perkins hopes Florida doesn't
have to deal with the kind of
hurricane onslaught it received
last year, but this year's hurri-
cane season is only half fin-
ished. Last year showed just
how many people were not
ready.
He reminds people get infor-
mation from local emergency
management agencies, stock up
on the things they need, and
heed warnings about approach-
ing storms.
If they don't, he said, they set
themselves up to be at the
mercy of the weather.
For emergency preparedness
information, contact any one of
the following agencies.

Emergency Management, 2555

tion and refuting witnesses. She
wanted to know Thursday ,jf
defendants had changed theirn-�
minds. McNeal didn't know
yet. He said finding that out
later is a risk she'd have to take.
Boldt agreed, saying clients
did not need to decide then.
Knittle further. objected to
consolidation, because some
evidence is more damaging to
other defendants than to Vann,
he said.

sense how seasoned a criminal
is, they said. "
Gary Perkins, executive
director of the Florida Sheriff's
Association, said his organiza-
tion is working with the Florida
Division of Emergency
Management's Emergency
Operations Center in
Tallahassee as a non-stop hub
for law enforcement deploy-
ment in the affected areas.
Some local departments have
no vehicles, buildings, or sup-
plies, he said.
"We are the first line of law
enforcement in some cases
because the (local) department
.' �l�gs gg


is rendered useless," Perkins
said.
Perkins can't confirm dam-
age in Florida Panhandle com-
munities, or where local
deputies will go. That's decided
by people closer to the damage.
In total, the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office has
pledged 11 people. Five law
enforcement deputies -
Mickey Cloninger, Det. Mike
Delaney, Mitch Moore. Sgt.
Keith Starling, and Fred
Tagtmeier - have not yet been
called.
Deputy James P. Fane, road
patrol, will serve two weeks as
public safety emergency service
function at the Florida emer-
gency operations center.
Rotating people keeps them
from v.earin r out, Perkins said,


but some have come back for a
second stint.
Perkins is proud of the way
Floridians have come to the aid
of the "three sister states up the
road from us."
"We're coming up with a
good team effort," he said.
The Florida Sheriff's
Association is also working
with the National Sheriff's
Association to build a relief
fund for the affected areas,
Perkins said.
Anyone who wants to help
the effort can contact the
Florida Sheriff's Association at
(850) 877-2165, the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office at 402-
7200, or the Highlands County
American Red Cross Service
Center at 386-4440..

and Carlino, who have traced
the location of a mysterious
doll to the apartment of Sam
Hendrix and his blind wife,
Suzy. Roat and his cohorts
convince Suzy that the police
have implicated Sam in a

doll, which she believes is
the key to his innocence, is
evidence. With the help of a
young neighbor, Gloria. Suzy
figures out she is the victim
of a bizarre charade and
refuses to reveal the doll's
location. Roat becomes des-
perate and a deadly game of
cat and mouse ensues

fair is to level the playing
field, so when night falls, she
turns off all of the lights,
leaving both of them to
maneuver in the dark until

CHAMPIONS FOR CHILDREN NOMINEES



Honorees named for annual award


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING
T he Judge Clifton M.
Kelly Champion for
Children Award was
created to honor indi-
viduals working on behalf of
Highlands County's young
people.
On Oct. 6, it will be pre-
sented at the sixth annual for-
mal dinner and gala.
Finalists were selected
through a two-step process.
Nominations were solicited
from the public and then
reviewed by a screening com-
mittee that narrowed the list to
10 finalists. A separate selec-
tion committee chose the recip-
ient.
The namesake of the award,
the late Clifton M. Kelly, was a
respected circuit court judge,
who wrote three books to edu-
cate people about the law. One
of them, "The Consequences of
Crime," is still used in local
schools.
By the force of personality
and a deep belief in his work,
Kelly set a high standard and
example.to everyone working
with children.
He was so esteemed that his
name was the only one consid-
ered when the award was creat-
ed by Kevin Roberts, director
of Human Services for
Highlands County and execu-
tive director of the Children's
Services Council.
This year's event will be
bittersweet as. Kelly died April
12. A special tribute to him is
planned.
Darlene Dick, one of this
year's nominees, remembers
Kelly as a man truly commit-
ted to his work.
"When he called, you knew
to cancel your appointments,"
she said with a laugh, "because
he could talk on the subject of
children for hours."
Judge J. David Langsford, a
fellow jurist, had especially
close ties. What he remembers
with the pride is being called
Kelly's pupil.
While Kelly will be missed
and remembered, the evening
belongs to those citizens who
work quietly all year round to
guide and support children.
The Children's Services
Council and the Children's
Services Fouftdation fund the
gala with private dollars. Both
Highlands Regional Medical
Center and Florida Hospital
have been cosponsors since the
beginning. Money left over is
channeled to worthy causes.
The majority of this year's
nominees are educators. There
are three classroom teachers,
one retired principal and coach,
two school administrators, one
school social worker, one
judge, one administrator of a
private agency, and one admin-


istrator of a faith-based agency.
Each of the nominees
expressed amazement at being
selected. Each pointed out how
many other people work equal-
ly hard.
Here are this year's 10 final-
ists.


JOHN C. FREELAND: Retired
principal advises teens to learn
from mistakes and look to the
future.

John Freeland
John C. Freeland has been
retired since 1986. His work as
a coach and the principal of
Sebring High School, however,
is still fresh in people's memo-
ries, which is why he is one of
this year's finalists.
"He's very sweet," said his
daughter-in-law Trish Freeland.
"He's a very caring, very lov-
ing person. And he's well
known. There's not a place
where we go, where people
don't say 'Hey Johnny!'"
Freeland was born in
Maryville, Tenn. He moved to
Sebring with his parents in
1926, and spent the rest of his'
life here - except for the time
he spent in the Army Air
Corps, serving in North Africa
during World War II.
In 1952 he joined the faculty
at the high school, becoming
an assistant football coach and
then head baseball coach
before being named principal.
"We had some good teams
in those years," Freeland said
recently. "Don Sutton, (the hall
of fame pitcher), beat us in the
playoffs, but we got three runs
off of him, which is some-
thing."
Freeland taught by example,
setting a standard of sports-
manship, integrity and generos-
ity.
He ran summer programs
and started Teen Town at the
city pier.
One of his greatest pleasures
now is watching people he
shepherded through adoles-
cence, working in the world as
adults, contributing something
to society.
County administrator Carl
Cool was just one of
Freeland's students. " I can
name a ton of them," he said
with pride.
He advises today's teens to
look to the past in order to


improve the future, because
"you learn from your mis-
takes," he said. "At least
you're supposed to," he added
with a laugh.

Katherine Main
Katherine Main has been a
champion for children for more
than three decades. As a social
worker for 21 years she inves-
tigated cases having to. do with
child welfare and adoptions.
It was difficult and some-
times even dangerous work, as
emotions often ran high.
"You have to care to be suc-
cessful but you have to be able
to cut it off, or it will eat you
alive," Main said.
Sixteen years ago Main
became a social worker for the
school district. She does more
counseling and enjoys the posi-
tive interventions.
The schools are tuned in and
working harder than ever
before she said. But she wor-
ries about the stress teachers
have to work with, as they
struggle to meet greater
demands.
She also worries about the
pressure that the culture puts
on children. Many troubled
students come from homes
where domestic violence is a
threat. How Qan children do
well in schools when their
home is a war zone, she asks.
Main has given a great deal
of her time, energy and money
lobbying for the Dream Act,
proposed legislation to help
undocumented students who
face deportation when they
reach le al'age'
Main's voice warms with
emotion when she speaks on
the subject. Most of these stu-
dents came to the United States
with their parents as infants or
toddlers, she says. They were
brought. They didn't ask to
come.
Most of them no longer even
speak their native language of
their native country, many have
never even been outside the
United States, she adds, saying,
"They are completely
Americanized. (The policy) is
simply inhumane."


KATHERINE MAIN: Social
worker counsels children who
are traumatized by domestic
violence and other problems in
the home.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
J. DAVID LANGFORD: Circuit court judge helped establish Teen
Court to show students where bad choices would lead them.


J. David Langford
A native of Frostproof and a
graduate of Frostproof High
School, J. David Langford
went on to Polk Community
College and the University of
Florida, earning his bachelor's
degree in 1972 and his law
degree in 1975. "
Langford first worked in the
state attorney's office and
entered private practice before
becoming a county judge in
1987. Two years later, he
became a circuit court judge.
For much of his time as a
circuit court judge, Langford
has overseen dependency
cases, dealing with children
who have been abandoned,
neglected or abused.
The court's goal is to try and
reunify families that have fall-
en apart. The work is difficult
and sometimes disheartening,
but it has also made Langford
an advocate for children.
Like Kelly, Langford works
to reach young people early
and hopes to guide them
toward a more fulfilling path,
or to at least avoid more pit-
falls in the road already taken.
Langford was a major force
behind the Teen Court, which
was begun in 1996.
Instead of working like a
real court and determining
guilt or innocence, the Teen
Court is teaches children about
the consequences of their
choices. Teenagers who admit
to a wrongdoing, present them-
selves before a jury of their
peers. The jury decides an
appropriate punishment after


listening to the offender and
that student's peer "lawyer."
The sentence is binding.
When it comes to raising
children today, there is always
hope and always concern,
Langford said. It comes down
to eternal vigilance, he added.
He offers the same advise to
young people that he gives his
own three children: Work hard,
be honest, and save your
money.


MICHAEL LEE: In midlife, he
founded a new career as a math
teacher.

Michael Lee
Michael Lee didn't set out to
be a teacher, let alone an advo-
cate for children. Following
four years in the U.S. Air
Force, he drifted into banking
and then sold insurance.
When he was 36 years old,
with family and a career, he
suddenly realized he wasn't
where he was meant to be. He
decided to start all over again.

Association builds 15,000-square-foot
so nature with locker room and other amenities


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING - Members of
1 lie School Board of Highlands
County, and administrators
itn1 the district and Sebring
1i h School toured the newly
completed Sebring Field House
at Firemen s Field Tuesday
aftl. mrnoon.
Fhe 15.00 square foot struc-
tItUI. is the work of the
Fl-imen's Association.
iohn Shoop, president of the
hecmen's Association, con-
doi ted the tour.
accordingg to Shoop, the
hi Hiding. which would have
c,.,t about $2.5 million if con-
,,ticted commercially, was
;minpleted for $650,000
bcc ause 80 percent of the labor
was donated. Companies as
well as individuals took part.
There was even one mother,
Shoop said, who swept floors
while waiting to pick up her
attilete son after practices.
The east end of the building
has an expansive weight room
with enough equipment to serve
60 to 80 students an hour,
Coach Gary Rapp said.
The west end of the building
has office space for coaches,
and enough video equipment
that assistant coaches can inde-
pendently view tape simultane-
ously.
There is a training room, an,


equipment room, showers, and
locker rooms which rival any
college's, Shoop pointed out
with pride.
The lockers are oversize and
made of varnished wood.
There is also a film room,
with a slanted floor and com-
puterized film projection sys-
tem.
When a film of Sebring's
recent game with Haynes City
was run to demonstrate the
video system, the visitors
became so engrossed in the
game. Rapp had to act like a
coach, turning on the lights to
get the tour underway again.
The field house, which was
begun a year ago last May, is
the final piece in a series of
upgrades to Firemen's Field.
A new concession stand was
built last year, opening just
before Hurricane Charlie hit.
The stand received no damage
in the storm.
New light poles have also
added to the field.
Shoop emphasized how col-
laborative the effort was, with
the school board and the county,
as well as private companies
and organizations, working
together.
"We put a lot of hours in, and
enjoyed doing it," Shoop said,
"Now we're looking for some-.
thing else to do."

Scout troop covers 62 miles during Tour of Sebring event


By PHIL ATTINGER
AcIws-S1n
SEBRING - The annual
lour ot Sebring bike event has
become a proving g.Iouud for
Song athletes.
Several riders from Boy
Scout Troop 120 out of West
Palm Beach set out Sunday and
covered a 62 mile circle - 100
kilometers.
One of them - 14-year-old
Walter Arnett - kept going for
100 miles. He was with a group
of adults who watched over him


while Scout Master Randy
Harner,. 40, rode back and forth
through the 62-mile circuit to
keep up with his other scouts.
"We've very proud of them,"
he said.
Other riders included 14-
year-old Peter Burch, 13-year-
old Brian Harner (Randy's son),
13-year-old Taylor Warren, and
13-year-old Jered Kosma.
They decided to come over to
Sebring when they needed to
earn bicycling merit badges for
the scouts: A 50-mile ride with-


in eight hours. Randy Harner
said.
Doing a private bicycling
tour requires setting up a route
with checkpoints and arranging
people to run support cars -
running back and forth to pick
up stragglers foi rides or offer
medical assistance, if needed.
Every year, Kenilworth
Lodge in downtown Sebring
does that. Randy Harner rides
12 miles to work each day and
is in the West Palm Beach
Bicycle Club, which dominates


the event.
He thought, why not bring
the scouts to Sebring? They did.
They pitched tents out in
Highlands Hammock State
Park, and just showed up to
ride. They would have stayed
for the entire weekend, but
Sunday s lengthy ride was
enough for the troop. Randy
Harner said.
Meanwhile, they had a good
dinner, according to Lexana
Arnett, Walter's mom: Steaks
on the grill.

PSC approves
Progress Energy's
rate settlement
On Thursday the Florida
Pubtl. Service Commission
approved an agreement that
will maintain Progress Energy
1lorida's base rates at their cur-
.ent levels through late 20007.
it will take effect Jan. 1.
"This is a significant agree-
ment that works to the benefit
)f our customers, as it keeps
jase rates stable," said Bill
tlabernmeyer, president and
chieff executive officer of
Progress Energy Florida.
The average residential bill
for 1,000 kilowatt-hours of
electricity is $97.78. A signifi-
cant portion of most customer's
ills is the base rate. The
remainder consists of the cost
of fuel used to generate elec-
tricity - an expense adjusted
annual by the PSC.
Like other utilities around
the. country, Progress Energy
has seen a rise in the cost of
fuel used to generate electricity.
Under state regulation, the
company will be seeking to
recover those high fuel costs in
a separate filing in the near
future. Progress Energy makes
no profit from the fuel compo-
nent in rtles, the company said
in a press statement.


This' was the first group of
RSVP volunteers to undergo
training for the Mentor/Tutor
program. Some of the partici-
pants were past volunteers and
retired teachers.
The three-hour training ses-
sion was conducted by Olivia
Scott of the Florida Diagnostic
and Learning Resources
System, Heartland. Her goal
was to show the tutors how to
help students learn strategies
that will help them complete
assignments.
In addition to sharing tutor-
ing strategies and providing
training materials, Scott gave


out a packet of motivational tips
and ready-to-use activities.
Letters of introduction were
provided by RSVP.
RSVP director Kathleen
Mills Montgomery introduced
Jody Flaa. a former teacher and
volunteer who is now the vol-
unteer . liaison between the
schools, the volunteers and the
RSVP office.
After the program, the
Optimist Club of Sebring pro-
vided lunch and gave each par-
ticipant a "tutor pack" filled
with item's that will help them
carry out their service.

Smoak named continent's Disney 'Conservation Hero'


Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund gives
one for all of North America every year


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Mason Smoak
can't help but feel thrilled at
receiving an award as "conser-
vation hero" from the Disney
Wildlife Conservation Fund.
He got a bit bowled over
Tuesday to learn the foundation
had awarded him the 2005
Conservation Hero Award for
North America. There's only
one per continent each year.
Smoak is a third-generation
Floridian whose family is in cit-
rus and cattle. Now, they're in
bears.
Four years ago, they put a
conservation easement on 8,400
acres of ranch land in southeast
Highlands County, along U.S.
27 in Venus. Essentially, they
sold development rights to the
state, Smoak said.
"We just wanted to have that
piece of property protected for
future generations," he said.
It would remove any tempta-
tion he or any of his children
might have from a big monetary
offer from a developer.
Then, starting two years ago,
he began working with David
Maher, Ph.D., with the
University of Kentucky to help
biologists study bears that use
the ranch for habitat.


The family provided their
camping house on the ranch and
swamp buggies to help biolo-
gists track bears outfitted with
radio collars.
Smoak, a pilot, even flew his
father's yellow 1989 Piper
Supercub every week or two to
help them locate radio-tagged
bears with a global position sys-
tem.
He learned of the males trav-
el as much as 20 miles, espe-
cially during mating season.
Females stay closer to their
dens, he said.
The Disney Wildlife
Conservation Fund contributes
millions of dollars to such proj-
ects every year, Smoak said.
The black bear in Florida is
rare, and he was glad to help
take part in it.
It's also provided a neat way
for his family to get involved in
conservation. He's even been
asked to help wrangle the bears,
after they've been tranquilized,
to be weighed and measured.
Each year, people buy
Disney Wildlife Conservation
Fund lapel buttons at Walt
Disney World's Animal
Kingdom. Smoak has learned
the Disney corporation matches
the price of each button in
donations to the fund.


PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Mason Smoak receives the Conservation Hero Award from the
Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund on Tuesday. Not only has the
third-generation Floridian helped conservation by putting a conser-
vation easement on 8,400 acres of their land, he helped David
Maher, Ph.D., with the University of Kentucky set up a field camp
on the property, provided swamp buggies, and piloted his father's
Piper Supercub to help track the.radio collared bears.

NATION


Landlord sues

restaurateurs

who say

building is

haunted
Associated Press
ORLANDO - The owners
of a Japanese restaurant who
claim their newly renovated
building is haunted are being
sued by their landlord for
refusing to move in.
An offer to hold an exor-
cism was refused, according
to the $2.6 million lawsuit
filed by the owners of the
Church Street Station enter-
tainment complex last month
in Orange County Circuit
Court.
"I asked them if these were
good ghosts or bad ghosts,
and if they were good ghosts
why it was a problem," said
David Simmons, an attorney
representing the building's
owners, who include boy
band promoter Lou Pearlman.
Simmons is also a member of
the Florida House of
Representatives.
Christopher and Yoko
Chung, the owners of Amura
Japanese Restaurant, had
planned to move into the
building in October 2004, but
backed out of the lease.
"There have been several
documented reports from sub-
contractors and others of hav-
ing seen ghosts or apparitions
in the restaurant at night," the
Chungs' attorney, Lynn
Franklin, wrote to the build-
ing's owner in November.
Franklin said Christopher
Chung's religious beliefs as a
Jehovah's Witness required
him to "avoid encountering or
- having any association with
- spirits or demons."
The lawsuit also asks a
judge to decide whether the
building is haunted and, if so,
whether the ghosts would
interfere with the restaurant's
business.


Lawsuit filed

against deputy

who shot man

in head
Associated Press
MIAMI - A Mexican
national who was shot in the
head by a former Broward
Sheriff's deputy sued the
county, the sheriff's office and
the ex-deputy in a $15 million
civil lawsuit on Wednesday,
his attorney said.
German Gomez, 27, was
shot once in the head in the
parking lot of his Pompano
Beach apartment complex on
Nov. 3 by Deputy Lewis
Perry. The shooting took
place when officers were
responding to a report of an
attempted burglary, David
Kubilian, Gomez's attorney,
told The Associated Press.
A neighbor called 911
when he didn't recognize
Gomez, who apparently went
to the wrong apartment after
moving to Broward just three
days earlier from the Mexican
province of Chiapas.
When deputies arrived,
Gomez and his cousin, Javier
Dominguez, were walking
across the parking lot. It's not
clear what prompted the
shooting, but neither of the
two men was armed.
Gomez suffered brain dam-
age and is living in an assist-
ed living center, Kubilian
said.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S.
District Court in Miami, also
claims deputies at the scene
prevented paramedics from
immediately treating Gomez.
After the shooting, a pro-
fessional review board recom-
mended that Perry be sus-
pended for issues stemming
from a different incident.
Perry had nine complaints
lodged against him in the


almost four years he has been
with the Broward Sherifl 's
Office.


Man who shot

father and son,

may face death
Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
A jury recommended two
death sentences Wednesday
for a man convicted in the
2004 shooting deaths of a
Jacksonville man and his 13-
year-old son.
The jury made a unanimous
recommendation that Thomas
Bevel, 24, be executed for
killing Mayport Middle
School student Phillip Sims.
The jury voted 8-4 to recom-
mend the death penalty for
murdering the boy's father"
Garrick Stringfield
The victims were fatally
shot with an AK-47 assault
rifle at Stringfield's home in
February 2004. Bevel had
been a boarder there.
Felitta Smith, who was'
watching television with
Stringfield, survived and iden-
tified Bevel as the shooter.
After his arrest a month
later, Bevel told police he
killed Stringfield because he
feared Stringfield was plan-
ning to kill him, Assistant
State Attorney Bernie de la
Rionda said during closing
arguments Friday.
Bevel told police he shot
Sims and Smith because he
couldn't leave a witness, de
La Rionda said.
Defense attorney Refik Eler
said Bevel confessed to pro-
tect his younger brother, who
owned two AK-47 assault
rifles.
A hearing about the recom-
mendation is set for Oct. 6. A
sentencing date not been
scheduled yet


Cabinet

approves Keys

sewer plan
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE -
Monroe County and its water
district will work together to
meet a legislative requirement
to sewer the Florida Keys by
20 10.
Under an agreement
approved Wednesday by the
Cabinet, the county and the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority will cooperate in
designing and constructing
the system - and in securing
the money to pay for it.
Officials are seeking state
and federal money in addition
to local infrastructure sales
taxes and user fees to cover
the costs, which is expected to
reach into the hundreds of
millions of dollars,
Under the plan, which
addresses the unincorporated
area of the county, each island
in the keys will have its own
sewage system. A lease agree
ment between the county and
the authority is expected to be
approved later this month.
Environmentalists have
blamed sewage problems in
the Keys for damaging coral
reefs off the chain of islands,
a popular destination for sport
fishing, snorkeling and scuba
diving.

Homesick plea prompts Georgia-

wide effort to bring boiled

peanuts to troops in Iraq


Issoriated Press
ROCHELLE, Ga. -
Members of Georgia's 48th
Infantry Brigade who are serv-
ing in Iraq will miss the usual
manifestations of fall back
home - deer hunters in cam-
ouflage, the roar of cotton gins,
football season and the first
frost.
But because of one soldier's
phone call to his mom, the
4,300-member brigade serving
in a combat zone half a world
away won't have to do without
one unmistakable taste of home
- boiled peanuts.
Georgia's statewide network
of 4-H clubs has launched
"Operation Boiled Peanuts,"
which is working to deliver two
tons of boiled peanuts, fresh
from the south Georgia fields
where they were grown, to the
state's soldiers serving in Iraq.
The peanuts are being packed
in 5,000 sealed, foil pouches
labeled "The Country Caviar"
and "Georgia Fresh Green
Peanuts Ready to Eat."
Spec. Clark Rountree's sim-
ple home-sick request in late
July has turned into a statewide
soldier-support project, irivolv-
ing even Gov. Sonny Perdue,
whose office is even helping to
arrange the transport of the
peanuts to the troops.
The 22-year-old cavalry
scout told his mother, Patricia
Anderson of Rochelle, that he
yearned for boiled peanuts
amid the parched sand and 130-
degree temperatures of Iraq.
"Clark told me to send boiled
peanuts and some rain."
Anderson recalled. "I said I can
get boiled peanuts, but I don't
know how to send rain."
He asked her to contact his
former boss. Wilcox County
peanut farmer Rex Bulloch.
She told Bulloch about her
son's craving and his desire to
share boiled peanuts from one


I


particular south Georgia farm
- Hardy Farms of nearby
Hawkinsville - with fellow
soldiers.
"He and Rex would go to
Hardy Farms, get a big bag and
ride around and eat those
peanuts while checking the
crops," Anderson said.
Instead of sending a few
bags, Bulloch decided to supply
the whole brigade. He contact-
ed Hardy Farms and the family-
owned business agreed to sup-
ply the two tons at a reduced
price.
"Anything Clark and those
boys want, and I can get it, I'm
going to get it done," said
Bulloch, 57, who was an Army
reservist during the Vietnam
War,
Authentic boiled peanuts are
made from "greeo" peanuts that
are pulled from the ground
early, just before they would
mature into the kind of peanuts
used in peanut butter, candy
and snack nuts. Boiled peanuts.
are cleaned and then boiled in
brine, often sold at roadside
stands throughout the state.
"It's a Southern thing,"
Bulloch said. "We grew up with
them and they're good. Some
people don't know how to eat
them. They don't know you
have to pop the hulls."
Hardy Farms has built a,
niche market with green
peanuts. They sell bags of green
peanuts to those who want to
boil them and they also sell
boiled peanuts - fresh from
the kettle at 24 roadside stands,
frozen and in metallic pouches
that are sold in supermarkets
and discount stores.
"We always wanted to do
something to show our appreci-
ation for what they do and their
sacrifice and dedication." said
Brad Hardy, son of the farms'
founder, Alex Hardy. "The
opportunity came."

One fruit that should be a-peeling to all


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Just get it right

The state Department of Children & Families has a
prevention plan it hopes will reduce by half the number
of children abused in Florida each year. It is an ambitious
and worthy goal for a state that has one of the nation's,
worst child abuse and neglect rates.
Prevention efforts are one way to tackle the problem.
Another would require the beleaguered agency to prove
it has learned from past mistakes.
Mistakes like those that sent Moesha Sylencieux back
into a cold and brutal home where.she was beaten with-
in inches of her life. Rather than own up to those mis-
takes, which left the toddler unable to eat, walk or talk,
DCF has continued to shirk blame.
DCF suspected a hospitalized Moesha had been
abused but still ignored its own procedures by allowing
her to return to a home that investigators noted lacked
any signs - bottles, a crib, diapers, toys - that a 2-year-
old even lived there. Weeks later, the little girl lay near
death.
No one within the agency has been held accountable
for her near-fatal beating. Neither her mother nor her
mother's boyfriend was arrested. And the recommenda-
tions in a scathing grand jury report upbraiding DCF for
failing Moesha and other children have been largely
ignored.
Now, DCF plans to appeal a $35 million verdict - $26
million of it pinned on DCF - that a jury awarded the
Lake Worth girl for her extensive pain, suffering and
medical.expenses. The decent thing to do would have
required DCF to pay Moesha's medical expenses at the
outset. The compassionate thing to do would have been
to show this girl, and every other child, that the agency
gets it. Instead, it went to court and now finds itself fac-
ing severe consequences.
DCF can adopt all the five-year plans it wants. But if
it can't get right the most basic of prevention techniques
- lessons learned and mistakes owned - all hope is
lost.

I love banana cream pie and
banana pudding just the way
my mom fixes it, but after get-
ting a itchy throat and swollen
tongue shortly after eating a
banana some time ago, I've
been afraid to eat another one.
Still, they look "a-peeling"
and smell delicious. Maybe I'll
soon get my nerve up to try
another one.
And after reading this, I'd
sure like to be among the many
who can benefit from bananas.
According to the World
Natural Health Organization,
bananas contain three natural
sugars - sucrose, fructose and
glucose combined with fiber, so
it gives an instant, sustained
and substantial boost of energy.
This days, I could definitely use
it.
Other information obtained
from the WNHO Web site says
research has proven that just
two bananas provide enough
energy for a strenuous 90-
minute workout.
But energy isn't the only way
a banana can help us keep fit. It


Prayerful things

to consider
Editor:
I was talking to Bill the other
day about religion in school.
Bill said "It's been a long time
since I went to school or had
any children in school, so my
opinions are probably rusty. It
seems to me that a few folks
who don't believe in God take
exception to any religion being
carried on in a school or any
building maintained by the
public taxes.
"The courts agreed and the
inclusion of religion (praying)
in the public schools stopped.
Some other folks carried this
thing a little further by asking
that various other religious
items such as mottos or the Ten
Commandments be barred
from buildings supported by
taxpayer money.
"Once again some ,of the
courts and a few judges;' said
yes to that also. Well, I suppose
they know what they're doing
but a good farmer doesn't leave
the field half plowed.
"Let's do this right. No more
religious holidays and politi-
cians can start working on
Sunday 'cause it's just another
day' and Christmas vacations
can be done away with too.
That will make the anti-religion
folks happy. We can stop hiring
clergy to work at the jails and
prisons. After all, the jails and
penitentiaries are running on
taxpayer money and if a person
is going to be executed, he can
request some person that does-
n't believe in God or anything
else to give him peace in his
final hours, can't have a priest
or clergyman because he is in a
taxpayer owned and operated
facility where religion is for-
bidden.
"Most of all, the judges and
politicians who take advantage
of all those religious holidays
can just stay put and do their
jobs. Right now you can't have
prayer in school where young
minds are molded, but all the
religion you want in prison
where prayer and hope are not
barred from the facility."
I said "Bill, do you believe in
prayer in school or display of
the Ten Commandments in
public places?"
He said, "Yes I do to both. I
believe in prayer anyplace,
anytime and the Ten
Commandments contain good
advice for all of us, even those
that profess not to believe in
God. I hope I have answered
your question."

'Minutes" lambasting the state
government and the federal
government for not coming to
the aid of his city more quickly
than they did after Hurricane
Katrina, I kept thinking to
myself... "where was the 'nay-
oral leadership? Would a Rudy
Guiliani have done a better job
of assembling the city
resources and obtaining outside
assistance more quickly had he
been the mayor?"
It seems to me that the
human suffering could have
been alleviated to some extent
if the mayor had provided a
"means" for the people to evac-
uate the city when he ordered
them to evacuate. The mayor
knew, or should have known,
that there were thousands of
people in the city who did not
have transportation out of the
city.
I wonder how many school
buses and other city and county
vehicles sat idle while he was
telling these people to leave the
city. Just telling those who
were able to walk out, to walk,
would have helped. Was it the
president of the USA or the
governor of Louisiana's
responsibility to press the
school buses, city buses, trucks
and any other vehicles that
could be commandeered into
evacuation service ... or should
the mayor have done that? He
complained because the police
in his city ran out of ammuni-
tion ... was that the fault of the
president or the governor? Or
of his chief of police and ulti-
mately him?

bananas contain regulates blood

your mood.
Anemia: High in iron,
bananas can stimulate the pro-
duction of hemoglobin in the
blood and so helps in cases of
anemia.

is extremely high in potassium

Questions for

Bush supporters

Editor:
As the fifth anniversary of
George W. Bush's fraudulent
election nears, I have some
questions for people who sup-
ported him:
* Since all of Bush's argu-
ments for attacking Iraq have
been exposed as wrong, decep-
tive or blatantly false (no
weapons of mass destruction,
no involvement by Iraqis in
Sept. 11, no connection,
between Iraq and al-Qaida,
etc.) how do you feel about
foolishly believing him?
* With many thousands of
people dead in Iraq, including
about 2,000 U.S. troops and
journalists along with about
15,000 wounded, how do you
feel about helping Bush kill or
maim them?
* Considering that Bush's
war expenditures are approach-
ing $300 billion and add about
$5,000 per month currently for
each average American family
to the national debt, which has
grown by about $1.5 trillion
under Bush (while programs
for the poor, veterans, children
and the elderly are cut), how do
you feel about the burden you
are leaving for your children
and grandchildren?
* Realizing that Bush's false
"war on terror" has produced
an increase in terrorism world-
wide (about twice as many vic-
tims from March 2004 to
March 2005, as in the year
before his war) how do you feel
about contributing to the
growth of terrorism and the
slaughter of innocent victims?
* In view of the fact that the
proposed Iraqi constitution
would establish a radical
Islamic theocracy - not a

lunch in a bid to boost their
brain power. Research has
shown that the potassium-
packed fruit can assist learning
by making pupils more alert.
And if those aren't enough
reasons to turn to this yellow-
skinned fruit, check out the
Web site. It tells how bananas
can help with nerves, ulcers,
morning sickness, temperature
control, and stress.
Believe me, I read enough to
know that I'm going to give
them another try. This time,
though, I think I'll make sure
someone is at home so if I do
have problems, I'll have some-
one around who can help.
I guess now we know why
monkeys are so happy. Just as
long as we don't start swinging
through the trees.

democracy - how do you feel
about helping install radical
clerics and the political party
with close ties to the ruling
clerics in Iran as the powers
behind the government in Iraq?
* As the number of people
in poverty reached one-eighth
of the U.S. population in 2004,
having increased by 6,000,000
under Bush, how do you feel
about contributing to'their piti-
ful plight?
* Knowing that the median
family income has remained
stagnant while the rich have

Editor:
It used to be that someone in

perhaps somewhat less compe-

with the most capable and

has bestowed appointments as
if the spoils system had not
supposedly been done away

Clearly, in a great many of
these appointments, knowledge

party loyalty and favoritism.

In our caring times, beware of scams LETTERS


With the recent
devastation to the
areas of Louisiana,
Miss-issippi and
Alabama, Amer-icans
are doing what they
do best, ... caring.
While many of you
are digging into your
pockets, your time or
contributing some- HIG
thing else of value, HO
you have others still
that are doing what -J
they do best ... steal- .P.
ing.
Before you give to
any organization please make
sure that it is a legitimate one.
Your large organizations have
been soliciting over the televi-
sion, radio and Interne. Just
make sure that you use the right
information before making your
contribution.
Organizations like the
American Red Cross are avail-
able online at http://www.red-
cross.org or by telephoning 1-
800-435-7669 and the Salvation
Army is online at
http://www.salvationarmyusa. or
g or by telephoning 1-800-725-
2769. You may also want to con-
sider using one of the local
churches or organizations that
you are already familiar with.
Those of us in the heartland of
Florida understand the needs of
those recently stricken by this
tragedy. I just wanted you to
make sure that your efforts were
rewarded by those truly in need,
receiving the care that you origi-
nally intended.
I also wanted to alert you to a
new and fast moving scam.
Again this one is dealing with
credit cards.
Yes, life today is tough with-
out them but it is just as tough
keeping them protected.
If you have not kept current,
many large agencies that have


HI
TL


the responsibility to
protect your personal
, information have been
4r having a difficult time
of it. Computer hack-
ers have gained infor-
, nation that they are
,. not entitled to. I'm just
as sure that scrupulous
persons have gained
WAY innocent peoples per-
sonal information
LINE through other means.
E- That brings us to this
'ANE latest scam.
You are contacted
by a representative of
a major credit card fraud depart-
ment. They will give you their
badge number and let you know
that your card has been flagged
concerning certain purchases
that have just been made. They
express to you their (as well as
their company's) concern about
your credit card.
In able for you to trust them,
they provide you with your cred-
it card number, they may even
provide you with the bank that
issued the card. They then ask
about a purchase for $500 from a
company that you have never
heard of for a product that is also
nothing you have purchased.
With concern in their voice
they ask "Did you make this pur-
chase?" When you reply "No"
they go to work. Now assured
that they have your best interest
in mind they advise you that they
will issue a credit to your
account for the improper charge.
They then go on to read you your
proper home address, just to
make sure that they send your
statement to the right address.
Once you have verified that the
address is correct they tell you
that they will start an immediate
fraud investigation. They may
even provide you with a control
number so that you can call back
(to the number provided on the


back of yotir credit card) and
track the results of the investiga-
tion.
There is only one final step
that they need to proceed. To
really ensure that you are who
you say you are, and that yop are
in possession of the credit card,
they ask you to turn your card
over and provide them with the
last three numbers following the
credit card number.
This is really what they have
been after all along.
This is the security number for
your credit card. Now that they
have this, remember, they actu-
ally already had everything else.
They are free to make as many
purchases as your credit limit
will allow.
During this whole conversa-
tion you may have said very lit-
tle as they intentionally ask you
questions that you can answer
with "Yes" or "No." But now the
damage is done.
Remember that a credit card
company may call you to ques-
tion a purchase. They will never
attempt to verify your personal
information. You are generally
directed to call their fraud
department. This is where you
initiate the call to a number that
you trust.
The best way to protect your-
self is to stay informed. This is
just one of many types of fraud
that are attempted daily.
If you would like more infor-
mation call the National Fraud
Information Center at 1-800-
876-7060. Visit their Web site at
http://www.fraud.org for a vast
array of ideas and current statis-
tics concerning fraud.

Continued from 18A
arguably the most egregious example, is the
current director of FEMA.
During his belated in-person television
appearance in the area of the devastation, a con-
voy of military personnel fortuitously appeared
on the split-screen. Bush has tried to lay much
blame on the governor (Democrat), yet nearly
half of Louisiana's National Guard had been
sent to Iraq.
How many lives could have been saved had
these men and their equipment been available
for deployment? How much property could
have been protected had FEMA mobilized mil-
itary personnel in a timely manner? (I'm not
sure; however, how you differentiate looting
from the price gouging at the gas pumps. They
are both criminal, although perpetrated by peo-
ple in much different circumstances.)
Your commander-in-chief, while displaying
his all-encompassing compassion, had time to
reiterate what a swell job FEMA was doing. As
a side issue, why are a reported 13,000 regular
army troops here on flood duty, while National
Guard troops are in Iraq.
It now appears that Mr. Brown's qualifica-
tions for his appointment as FEMA director are
suspect at best, having been forced to leave his
previous position for cause. He was at the helm
in 2004, giving away millions of dollars in
Miami-Dade under the most suspicious circum-
stances, since they had no hurricane damage. At
the same time, poor areas in central Florida
have yet to receive the money and repairs prom-
ised by FEMA a year ago.
Perhaps, however, his previous job experi-
ence might be more relevant than it appears.
After all, when you had spent the last 11 years
looking at the south end of a bunch of horses,
what is one more?

Supplies pouring in
Editor:
This letter is to all who have found the love
and dedication in their hearts and lives to give
to all the families in Mississippi and New
Orleans. As we have seen on the news and read
in the papers, their lives have been turned com-
pletely upside down, and I would like to take


this time to thank all those who have kindly
donated money, clothes and perishables.
All sorts of supplies are pouring in from all
over and for that I am so proud of my commu-
nity for their generosity.
We are still collecting donations and will be
as long as it takes to reach all that we possibly
can. I have made it a personal obligation to give
110 percent of my time and talents to these fel-
low neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ
to help them in their time of need and may God
so richly bless each and everyone of you and
guide you to reach deep into your hearts and
help our neighbors in the gulf coast states.
For any questions or comments, please feel
free to contact me at 453-5000.

Youth collect money

Editor:
A special thank you to the residents of Avon
Park who donated to the American Red Cross
Donation Drive for Hurricane Katrina victims.
A total of $3,350 was collected in less than
five hours on Sunday by a great group of young
people including: Brandi Godwin, Allison
Kelly, Lindsey Worden, Jamee Cook, Corrie
Tomek, Christian Taylor and Drew Prescott.
This was all possible due to the generosity of
the residents of Avon Park.

Meth series educational
Editor:
Thank you very much for using your time and
resources to report on the meth epidemic.
Unfortunately, it takes a personal heartache for
people to care about what is happening.
Sadly, at the meth addiction growth rate,
everyone will be touched by it one way or
another before much longer.
Libbie Combee is doing an incredible job
with juvenile and adult addicts, along with their
family members. The MAMA meetings are a
life saver when family members have nowhere
to turn for support.
Thank you for educating the community.

NOMINEES
Continued from 9A
With his family's support he
enrolled at Warner Southern
College to become a teacher.
"I graduated college almost
20 years to the day from when
I graduated (Lake Placid) High
School," Lee said.
Long before he became a
teacher, however, Lee had been
working with children. For 20
years he has coached teams in
just about every sport, in the
youth leagues and YMCA.
After teaching exceptional
students at Lake Placid Middle
School for five years, last year
he taught math. This year he is
teaching pre-algebra at Sebring
High School.
"The reason I teach is that it
allows me to build a relation-
ship with my students, so that I
can reach them in a positive
way," Lee said.
Lee teaches by example and
by building trust. "Being in
high school is hard," he said.
"You begin to figure out who
you are. Being true to that and
not letting yourself get derailed
is difficult.
"A lot of times, (students)
are physically grown, and we
make the mistake of thinking
that they're emotionally grown,
but they're not," Lee pointed
out. "Look past what's on the
outside, and look at what's on
the inside."


KARL KNIGHTEN: Youth
Academy administrator believes
in demonstrating the value of
making good choices to incar-
cerated boys.

Karl Knighten
Karl D. Knighten was work-
ing in a phosphate mine and
wanting to find a different pro-
fession, when a friend suggest-
- ed he work with children.
It wasn't a stretch. A native
of Plant City, Knighten had
volunteered with church groups
and leagues for years. He
applied for a job as a youth
care worker for the county, and
the rest, as they say, is history.
From the beginning,
Knighten has led by example.
The example he set was to
chart a course that would posi-
tion him for job training and
opportunities for promotion.
He wanted to be able to
demonstrate the result of good
choices to boys who rarely
made any by making good
choices himself.
Knighten earned an associ-
ate degree in criminal justice
from Hillsborough Community
College, and is working on a
bachelor's degree from Nova
University.
He has worked with troubled
youth, some of whom are con-
victed felons, since 1993 and at
the Avon Park Youth Academy
since 2001.
He is the senior assistant
facility administrator at the
academy, and oversees the day-
to-day operations of the cam-
pus in terms of safety and
security.
Twice a week he holds
group sessions with the 200
young men incarcerated there.
He talks to them about possi-
bility and discipline, but most-
ly he talks about choices.
"One saying I always use is,
'If you want to make a differ-
ence, you have to be the differ-
ence,'" Knighten said.
Then he added, "You may
not want to be a role model,
but kids watch every move
you make. Their parents may
be on drugs or locked up, and
it may be you become their
role model, whether you want
to or not. It's important not to
criticize but to encourage."

Marie Daniels
Marie Daniels calls herself a
Florida cracker, having been
born and raised in Sebring.
She has spent 22 years teach-
ing exceptional student educa-
tion, the last three at Avon
Elementary School.
Daniels has been honored in
the past and chosen as teacher
of the year by Avon
Elementary School, Highlands
County and Wal-Mart.
Her mother, Martha Foster,
and her grandmother, Roxene


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
MARIE DANIELS: Educator wants others to see humanity in the
disabled students she teaches.


Riggs, who is 112 years old,
were her role models. With
their support and guidance, she
was the first in her family to
get a college education.
Her career began as a para-
professional with Ridge Area
Arc. She loved teaching and
wanted to be around students.
She earned an associate
degree from South Florida
Community College, a bache-
lor's degree from the
University of South Florida,
and a master's degree from
Nova University. For the last
18 years, she has taught excep-
tional education in the middle
schools.
"People need to know (these
students) are individuals, and
each is unique. I focus on their
abilities, not their disabilities,"
she said.
Daniels works to foster an
understanding of people with
handicaps. She holds work-
shops and encourages interac-
tion. "I don't want (other stu-
dents) to look at my students
and go, 'Oh look at the kid in a
wheelchair,'" she said. "I want
them to wave and say, 'Hi.
How are you today.'"
With the help of parents, the
agriculture program at Avon
Park High School and Avon
Elementary's administrative
staff, she and her students
planted a garden.
Just getting their hands dirty
is a positive, she said; describ-
ing how the students reacted to
plunging their hands into the
soil, feeling it for the first time,
thrilled that it was "messy".
"Just to see (children) gain
skills others think they will
never attain that is what makes
me jump and sing," Daniels
said.

Sandra Kuhn
In 1962 Sandra Kuhn fol-
lowed her parents from
Highlands County.
For 30 years she was an
administrator for the county's
health department. When she
retired in 1992 that she discov-
ered her life's mission.
She started Heartland Horses
and Handicapped, a chapter of
an international, non-profit
organization that provides
opportunities for people with
handicaps to ride and interact
with horses.
Her dream began on a small
scale, with her own two horses,
a handful of'volunteers and
donated space at the 4-H arena.
In the seven years since,
Kuhn persisted in building the
program, gaining allies and
friends - The United Way, the
Kiwanis of Sebring, Ridge
Area Arc and many dedicated
individuals.


Now Horses and
Handicapped has a permanent
home, complete with a barn,
six horses and seven acres of
space. Kuhn expects to work
with 40 or 50 riders of all ages
and handicaps this year.
"God only knows why, but
the horses seem to understand
they're needed," Kuhn said.
Their gait is the same as a
human's, and riding a horse
simulates walking, which stim-
ulates the spine."
"We had one wheelchair
bound client who rode for two
years, and was eventually able
to walk with a walker.
"We don't treat (our riders)
as handicapped,' Kuhn
explained. "It's an 'I can' atti-
tude here. To see people realize
their full potential, once you
see them smile, you know any-
thing is possible on the back of
a horse."

Darlene Dick
Darlene Dick was born and
raised in Highlands County,
and is a graduate of Avon Park
High School.
She went on to South
Florida Community College
and to the University of South
Florida in Tampa where she
majored in social work.
Dick's first job was working
in a group residence for emo-
tionally disturbed children in
Hardee County. She discovered
she had a natural affinity for
troubled teenagers.
"The 11 to 18 year olds,
that's my niche," she said
recently. Once she became a
medical social worker with the
Highlands County Department
of Human Services, she took
director Kevin Roberts' sug-
gestion and became a supervi-
sor for the department of juve-
nile justice.
Part of her responsibility
was to implement the
Consequences of Crime pro-
gram initiated by Kelly.
Her work led to her appoint-
ment to the planning commit-
tee for a new alternative school
the school board wanted to
start.
Her background and work
on the committee led in turn to
her being named the first direc-
tor of the Academy at Youth
Care Lane in 2002.
The academy provides an
opportunity for teenagers to
turn their lives around before
they are expelled from public
school.
The program is highly struc-
tured and strict, and modeled
on the military's basic training.
Students may attend for as few
as three weeks, or as many as
nine, even longer in certain
cases.


"All our kids are treated the
same." Dick said. "It doesn't
matter if they're rich or poor,
white or black, boys or girls.,'It
doesn't matter. All are equal.
"(Teenagers) can be success-
ful here, we had a whole group
of kids who didn't want to
leave. It's wonderful to see
kids change, to have pride in
doing things they couldn't do
before they came here."
Dick still loves working
with young people best. "Give
me 50 delinquents over 10
adults any day," she said.


DARLENE DICK: Found her
niche working with delinquent
adolescents.

Sandra White
Sandra White has been help-
ing local students make music
for nearly 30 years.
She moved here from
Alabama when her husband,
Winfred, came to the First
Baptist Church of Sebring as a
pastor.
White had graduated from
Jacksonville University in
Alabama, with a major in
music, and an elementary
school teaching certificate.
When she arrived, music
was not part of any school's
curriculum, so she taught sec-
ond grade for two' years.
But she also lobbied for
music and was given the
opportunity to start a program
at Fred Wild Elementary
School.
Once parents attended heard
their children sing in concerts
and saw how they responded to
music, the program grew all by
itself. Today there are music
programs in all of the.county's
public schools.
In the meantime, while set-
ting an example, White was
growing with her students. She


'\\\\I. ,IN ,


continued her formal educa-
tion, taking classes at
Westminster Choir College,
Princeton University, among
other schools, and she followed
her Fred Wild choir to Sebring
Middle School. When they
moved on to Sebring High
School, she did too. She has
been choir director there for 20
years.
. In that time the Sebring
choir has gone to every state
competition. They have sung
20 times at Disney and five
times in Europe and five times
at New York's Carnegie Hall.
Twice the choir saw its name
featured on the billboard.
"The children are where it's
at," White said. "I could sit at
home and play my piano, but
it's the interaction with stu-
dents that makes it worth
while.
"Music gives children self-
confidence and an emotional
outlet. It's a higher learning
skill, that requires discipline,
team work and practice. It cre-
ates a tremendous feeling of
success. If everyone sang, there
wouldn't be so much trouble,"
she said.


SANDRA WHITE: Educator-
has been helping students make
music for nearly 30 years.


Andrew Katsanis
Andrew Katsanis moved to
Lake Placid from Miami with
his parents when he was 16
years old. When he was 18 he
recommitted his heart to Christ
arid became a pastoral intern.
He also attended South Florida
Community College, and went
on to complete a bachelor's
degree at Warner Southern in
pastoral ministry.
In 1997 he became the youth


pastor at the Shepard Road
Church in Lakeland. And in
1999 he joined Youth for
Christ, becoming the executive
director of the organization in
Highlands County in 2002.
When he took over those
duties. Youth for Christ was
reaching about 200 students a
week. Today, it reaches about
1,000 students a week.
Under his guidance, Youth
for Christ has groups in every
public middle and high school,
and the Lake Placid Christian
and Heartland Christian
schools as well.
Students gather before
school two hours a week to
praise worship and listen to
topical messages, but there is
fun activity and conversation
scheduled along with special
events.
"We want to connect with
students," Katsanis said. "It's
not Bible thumping, but rela-
tional, to help out with issues,
because kids that age are bat-
tling with things like self-worth
and self-image. You know, you
have to wear this, or look like
that. It's bogus, young people
feel such pressure.
"We tell them, you may not
match up to what the world
says, but know that your life
has meaning and a plan. God
has created you for a purpose.
There is hope and success."
Katsanis has the goal of
reaching every young person in
Highlands County.
"Encouraging this generation
to not give up," he said.
"Encouraging them even when,
they mess up. Showing them
God is full of mercy, and an
answer to emptiness."


ANDREW KATSANIS: Youth
for Christ director wants young
generation to know that God is
the answer to their emptiness.

Men speak out
Names of the victims have
been withheld because of
confidentiality.

Sam called to say, "It's
about time the truth comes to
the forefront, that women are
not the only victims of
domestic violence ... that
many of us men ... not sissy
men, but strong able bodied
men, are being abused by our
women."
"My girlfriend had been
verbally and physically abu-
sive toward me for months.
On one occasion she kicked
me in the groin, making me
speechless, her trade contin-
ued, so I called the cops. I
was told to leave, even after
informing them that the
house was mine. Yet, had I
been the perpetrator I would
'have been arrested and told
to leave. It is not fair to us
men, things need to change,"
said Fred.
"The abuse to men by
women started at birth. My
mother abused me, pretend-
ing that her abusive behavior
toward me was love. I was
physically and verbally
abused at the blink of an eye.
If my shirt was not properly
tucked it, I was whipped. If
my shoes were dirty, I was
whipped ... whipped on my
bare behind. I later learned
that the hatred she had
toward my dad was leveled
toward me," Hal said.
"For the first three years
of our marriage, my wife and
I were the perfect couple.
Our relationship was the
envy of our friends, until one
day I returned'to find my
wife had turned into a mon-
ster. My fault, I had forgotten
to put the garbage curb side.
She said to me, I saw my
mother slave like a dog for
my father and suffered in
silence, as he abused her. I
was shocked that such a'
small thing could have esca-
lated in violent outburst,"
James said.
According to Messing
1989, many of our conflicts
are "hand-me-down" from
our original family, our
grandparents and even fur-
ther back a generation or
two. Many parents whipped
their children. Just a few
generations ago there was a
"Rule of Thumb," you may
beat your wife with a stick if
it's smaller that your thumb.
If your grandfather beat
your father, it is not surpris-
ing that you are beaten.If
your mother was always
envious and angry with her
brilliant perfect sister, it is
not surprising your mother is
constantly critical of you. If
your dad's youngest brother
was labeled to have attention
deficit hyperactive disorder,
he may carefully observe his
youngest son for signs of
similar behavior.
Messing's writings
encourage us to "know your-
self and your history, to
understand others reaction to
you."
There are a series of work-
books available for adults
and children, to assist them
in understanding history and
find ways to get rid of anger.

Rap lyrics by Robert Ruiz

What is it to be spiritual? to go in
the world and spread
Miracles boys and girls and let
them know Jesus is king
So they may look to him and bless-
ings they bring
I sing praises to the most high I
will praise His
Name 'til my body lies in the
ground and I die and my
Sound will be finished and the
devil's powers diminished
And his love for pain will be taken
for God will be
Loved and the devil forsaken. God
has blessed me to be'
Lyrical, but let me ask you ... what
is it to be spiritual?


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Robert Ruiz, a 16-year-old
Christian rapper, has a mis-
sion to serve God through
The Movement.
The Sebring teen has found a passion
in writing music and formed a Christian
rap group called The Movement.
"I love to write. It's my passion. The
last 10 years I've been writing poems,
and songs in my notebooks. Mom said it
made me think more when I wrote
rhymes. I love every style of music, but
especially rap. One day with a friend, he
made a 'beep' ... a sound. I said what's
that? And he paged through my book of
poems and told me to read it to the
rhythm he would create with beeps. I
immediately liked how it felt. That's
how it started. The youth pastor at
Living Waters Church encouraged me at
age 12 and I never felt shy on stage. Our
first local Christian rap group formed
was called Three Crosses. It ended, but I
never stopped," Ruiz said.
Ruiz was only 4 and living with his
family in Miami when Hurricane
Andrew hit. They lost everything, and
when some meat and rice were given to
them, his mother cooked it and shared it
with people who were living under a
bridge.
"That was my reality check of how
awful some people have it. At age 5,
when we moved to Sebring, I had a
burning desire to help others. My moth-
er had asthma for a few years and it was
scary when she had to be in the hospital.
But I got used to the routine. I felt sorry
for others who couldn't be home at
Thanksgiving or Christmas with family.
So I saved my pennies, $27 worth."
It was then he started Penny Boy
Ministries and was referred to as the
"Penny Boy."
"That first time, I went to an elderly
facility and gave presents. The second
year I had $127 to work with. It was
done low-key, with nurses always telling
me of people who needed help. Last

year, we gave
980 gifts and 57
complete turkey
dinners," Ruiz
said.
"We already
have 90 fami-
lies to feed this
year. We raise
lots of pennies
with concerts
and food drives.
And my hus-
band and I usu-
ally match
whatever
Robert raises,"
said his mother,
Evelyn Ruiz.
T h e
Movement will
be doing a con-
cert at 7 p.m.
Saturday, Sept.
17, at Living
Waters Church
of God, 4571
Sparta -Road.
Bring canned g
goods or non-
perishable food
items for the 4
Penny Boy
Ministry.
According to Robert Ruiz, of Sebring
Evelyn Ruiz,
they will use the
food items to feed the needy in
Highlands County but the remaining
portion will be donated to help
Hurricane Katrina victims. In addition to
The Movement, a drama will be per-
formed. The opening act band is called
Every Other Time and it plays Christian
hard-core rock.
The first church Ruiz attended in
Sebring only had four kids. His mother
took him and a friend to youth night at
Living Waters. The church had drama,
music, and praised God. That's when he
started a group called Three Crosses and
later Prophet of Truth.


,, raps a song.


"We had 185
kids at those
shows. We'd
worked hard, but
he felt he needed
a break, a time
out. So that
group ended,"
Ruiz said.
The new group
is called The
Movement, and
there are two
other members.
Terah Barron, 19,
is the pastor's
daughter and is
supportive. She
plays piano.
"I call her
Dove, because
she sings like a
bird. She's like a
big sister, always
encouraging me
to keep writing.
Terah married
Jason Barron, 20,
who is the disc
jockey for the
group.
Terah Barron
said, "I've been
singing since I
was 4, and was in


a few groups:
The Story, and
Prophets of Truth. I love any music and
would love to pursue a career in it.
Although I'm recently married, I still
write songs."
"The main reason for The Movement
is to reach the young people in
Highlands County. It is powerful and an
inspiration. People listen and feel better.
You're left with a positive attitude, not
degraded like in secular rap. Every Other
Time, a Christian hard-core rock band is
our opening act, and is blastin'. That
makes the youth group grow. We usually
hold a concert a month. Soon we will be
offering T-shirts to raise money. At the


Terah Barron plays piano and sings.


concert there will also be an altar call for
people to know Jesus in case they are
struggling. Our youth ministry is called
H20. It meets Thursday at 6 p.m. We're
putting together a youth cafe with differ-
ent speaker and Robert Ruiz even occa-
sionally raps."
Jason Barron Was born in Florida,
moved to Alabama, and later returned to
graduate from Plant City High School.
In 2003, he served in the military work-
ing on helicopters. When his dad, a pas-
tor, was transferred to Covenant Church
of God in Sebring last year, he met
Terah. Jason presently works for the
Highlands County School
Transportation Department.
"In my dad's church I ran the sound
booth and got hooked on it. I always
worked with computers. Now I help with
the youth and run the sound booth for
the Sunday morning second service at
my father-in-law's church. I enjoy the
technical part and also running the
sound. I've helped with the concerts'
stage and lights, running sound, and
computer images, acting as the DJ and
introducing them," Jason Barron said.
"I think the purpose is to show adults
and kids an alternative style of music for
worshipping God. Most hear and see rap
on TV and judge it as nasty. But we
reach kids where they're at. We're
Christians who enjoy musid and are rap-
pers. We love to share the message.
Churches in Miami, Deltona, Plant City
and Lakeland have asked us to perform,
and now we're branching out. Ruiz has a
good heart and lots of talent. Terah sings
contemporary, traditional music. At one
mini concert we used old hymnals and
Terah sang, then on the chorus Ruiz
rapped. It was beautiful. They both love
God and are good friends," Jason Barron
said.
"I call him Watchman because he
stares like a guard," Robert Ruiz said
about Jason Barron.
"They call me God's Law, and those
letters each have meaning: Loyalty is
not an option; Anointed by the blood of
Christ; and Willing to fight in the army
of the Lord," Robert Ruiz said.
A church called Bountiful Blessings
in Sebring invited Ruiz to rap. He
brought the house down and got a stand-
ing ovation.
"He felt honored to be among them.
And he said 'that before God we are no
color, sex, or creed ... we're Christians.'
I feel that if only one kid is touched so
that he won't steal or do drugs, it is a
success. I've always told them they can
do anything," Evelyn Ruiz said.
Robert Ruiz works as a volunteer at
the Living Waters Daycare, taking out
garbage, sweeping, whatever is needed.
Florence Concepcion, the secretary at
Living Waters, said, "My husband and I
went to see Robert perform. He'd turn to
me and say, 'What's he saying?' Then
the mic would be turned to Terah, the
music would slow, she'd sing a few vers-
es, and then it would be passed back and
Robert would rap again. Together they
were beautiful. I feel you're never too
old to enjoy music, no matter how
unique."
Terah's brother, Chris Walden, a
member of Every Other Time, is 17.
He's a senior at Sebring High School. He
plays varsity soccer, guitar, and bass and

Break out the iPods; Harry's going digital


All six novels will be
available for audio downloads
By HILLEL ITALIE
AP National Writer
NEW YORK - Break out your iPods:
Harry Potter is going digital. *
J.K. Rowling, once publishing's greatest
holdout against the computer age, has made
all six Potter novels available for audio
downloads. In a message posted
Wednesday on her Web site, Rowling said
she was concerned about online piracy,
included bootleg editions for which the
original text was altered.
"Many Harry Potter fans have been keen
for digital access for a while, but the decid-
ing factor for me in authorizing this new
version is that it will help combat the grow-
ing incidents of piracy in this area,"
Rowling wrote.
"There have been a number of incidents
where fans have stumbled upon unautho-
rized files believing them to be genuine
and, quite apart from the fact that they are
illegal, the Harry Potter content of these can
bear very little resemblance to anything
I've ever written!"
The digital audiobooks are being
released by the Random House Audio


Trade Group, her current audio publisher.
They can be purchased through Apple's
iTunes store, for prices ranging from
$32.95 for a single book to $249 for the
whole series, which, according to Random
House, includes a "full color digital book-
let" and "previously unreleased readings"
by Rowling.
Neil Blair, a lawyer with Rowling's liter-
ary agency, said Wednesday that there are
no current plans for Potter e-books.
Rowling's fantasy series, most recently
"Harry Potter and Half-Blood Prince," has
sold more than 200 million copies world-
wide in print editions and more than 5 mil-
lion as audiobooks, narrated by Grammy
winner Jim Dale. But up to now the author
had only permitted paper and traditional
audio releases, making her work a favorite
for online pirates, although illegal sales are
believed to be relatively tiny.
Helped by the iPod boom, digital audio-
books are already one of publishing's
hottest sectors, with sales nearly quadru-
pling between 2001 and 2003, to more than
$18 million, according to the Audio
Publishers Association.
"It's very exciting that an audiobook
both critically acclaimed and commercially
successful is finally available to the very


broad audience of people who enjoy down-
loading," says association president Mary
Beth Roche.
Also Wednesday, Rowling said on her
Web site that she was concerned by a wave
of Potter merchandise with fake autographs
for sale on eBay.
"As far as I could tell on the day I
dropped in, only one of the signatures on
offer appeared genuine," she wrote.
"There seem to be a lot of people out
there trying to con Harry Potter fans. The
same is true in respect to the huge number
of unauthorized Harry Potter e-books and
audio digital files that .users of eBay have
offered for sale to Harry Potter fans," wrote
Rowling, who accused eBay of refusing to
take responsibility for what it allows to be
sold.
eBay spokesman Hani Durzi said
Wednesday that Rowling is part of a copy-
right protection program offered by the
online auction giant that allows members to
report problems. Durzi estimates that eBay
has 55 million listings at any given time
and says that "'it's the responsibility of the
copyright owner to report any listings that
violate their rights."
"When they do, we take those listings
down immediately," he said.


New WB drama 'Supernatural' gets Internet jump


By LYNN ELBER
AP Television Writer
LOS ANGELES - The new WB series
"Supernatural" will debut online before it
airs on television, another sign of broadcast
TV's increasingly aggressive promotional
schemes.
Yahoo! users will be able to stream the
first episode for a week beginning Tuesday,
WB and the Internet company said.
"Supernatural," about two brothers who
encounter evil forces as they search for
their missing father, begins airing on the
network Sept. 13.
"You have to scream really loud and real-
ly compel the audience to choose your
show over the array of other shows being
presented to them at the same time," said
WB Entertainment President David
Janollari. "You have to find nontraditional
ways to reach the audience."
The six broadcast networks will field 65
new and returning shows during the Sept.
19 premiere week and quickly build to
about 130 total, Janollari noted. "And we're
not even talking about cable," he added.
.... With WB lacking the heftier on-screen
promotional strength of the bigger and
more established CBS, ABC and NBC net-
works, so-called "guerrilla" marketing tac-
tics are especially vital, he said.
The major networks also are going
beyond the traditional on-air promos, radio
ads and billboards: ABC's "Desperate


Housewives" made a splash last year with
dry-cleaning bags touting the series and is
repeating the tactic, this time throwing in
the occasional free T-shirt.
Besides the online streaming of
"Supernatural," which stars Jared Padalecki
and Jensen Ackles, WB is employing a host
of standard and innovative measures to
make viewers want to tune in and sample
the drama. Among the offbeat ones:
M At 500 cafes in New York, Los
Angeles and Chicago, coffee cup sleeves
inscribed with a spooky image drawn in
thermal ink that appears when the beverage
heats up the cup.
* Promotional messages on bar mirrors,
in video game stores and movie theaters,
with "Supernatural" napkins and coasters .in
hundreds of bars in the top 10 TV markets.
M "Supernatural" signs on tops of gas
pumps and hoses at stations in seven mar-
kets.
* Rubber glow-in-the-dark bracelets
distributed in front of movie theaters, in
New York and Los Angeles.
Streaming a show online before its TV'
debut was something WB inaugurated last
year with its drama "Jack & Bobby." The
network believes the pre-broadcast expo-
sure on America Online helped boost its
initial audience, although the show couldn't
hold viewers and was canceled..
For a horror series like "Supernatural,"
designed to appeal to young adult viewers


12 to 34, debuting online makes sense,
according to Janollari.
"That's where they're living," he said of
the target audience.
WB and its affiliates are betting that
those who sample the show will want to
repeat the viewing experience on TV.
Besides, network executives said, the goal
is to build an audience for the season and
beyond, not just the debut episode.
Earlier this year, Yahoo! streamed the
pilot of Kirstie Alley's "Fat Actress" at the
same time it debuted on Showtime and
showed series clips. Combined, the promo-
tions were viewed 1.4 million times.
The value for Yahoo! comes in providing
richer content for its users, said company
executive David Katz. It also creates a
source of valuable data for the entertain-
ment industry.
"It helps Yahoo! users make more
informed decisions about what they want to
view and gives networks and studios more
information about what users are really
most interested in," said Katz, vice presi-
'dent of entertainment and sports.
Details about "Supernatural" also will be
sprinkled throughout Yahoo! including on
its heavily trafficked home page.

Mariah Carey among the winners at Lady of Soul Awards


By SOLVE SCHOU
Associated Press Writer
PASADENA, Calif. - Mariah Carey,
Destiny's Child, Alicia Keys and Missy
Elliott were the big winners at the 2005
Lady of Soul Awards, but because none of
the performers attended the ceremony,
Aretha Franklin stole the show.
The legendary singer received the Lena
Home Award for outstanding career
achievements and gave two rousing per-
formances - "Until You Come Back to
Me" with Stevie Wonder on piano and a
pumped-up version of her hit "Respect."
Sweating and slapping her thigh,
Franklin pounded out high and low notes,
holding her microphone out to the audience
on the song's famous chorus.
"I don't think I can carry it, but I am
absolutely thrilled to be receiving this
award," she said.
Carey won awards for best solo single


and album for "The Emancipation of
Mimi."
"I've got a great place on the mantle, so
call me Mariah," joked presenter and
"Charmed" star Dorian Gregory, who
accepted the best single award on Carey's
behalf.
Destiny's Child nabbed awards for best
group single for "Soldier" and best album
for "Destiny Fulfilled." Keys won best
song of the year for "If I Ain't Got You,"
while Elliott won best music video for
"Lose Control," featuring Ciara and Fat
Man Scoop.
Ciara, Brian McKnight and Toni Braxton
hosted the ceremony at the Pasadena Civic
Auditorium, which will be syndicated for
broadcast later this month. Winners were
decided by 1,600 voters, including artists
and radio station representatives.
For the first time, Franklin presented the
Aretha Franklin Award for entertainer of


the year in person. The winner was Amerie,
whose bouncy song "1 Thing" became a
summertime hit.
Amerie said she had trouble sleeping for
weeks thinking about Franklin presenting
her the award. She thanked her parents, her
sister and longtime "Soul Train" host Don
Cornelius for "supporting me throughout
my brief career, which will hopefully
become a long one."
Earlier, she performed "1 Thing" dressed
in black lace with a bevy of dancers.
Ciara won awards for best new artist and
dance cut for her thumping "1, 2 Step." The
crunk-and-R&B-influenced singer changed
from a sleek black pantsuit to a bra-skim-
ming top and again to a modest blue
sweater during the show.
"It's such a blessing just to be acknowl-
edged as an artist," she said. "We didn't get
any sleep on this video, so thank you."

Family pays only lip service to how much they put away


Dear Abby: Please tell me how to
respond to people who sit at a table with me
(in my home, theirs or out) and make com-
ments about being full, eating just "because
it's there," or "for the flavor" - and con-
tinue to eat? All of my family members are
overweight. I am the smallest by far at a
size 8. They engage in this often, and it dis-
tresses me.
I don't want to jump up from the table,
clear away the dishes and tell them to stop
eating, but I also don't enjoy hearing them
talk about how much they shouldn't be eat-
ing while they continue to do so.
Most of them have been advised more
than once by physicians to lose weight for
the sake of their health. Other than bringing
food to share that's low in sugar and fat, is
there a way to politely deal with this bizarre
behavior? - Fed Up in Houston
Daer Fed Up: No, there isn't. But you
can save your sanity by recognizing idle
chatter for what it is and tuning it out. In
your own home, you can simply serve less
food - or clear away the tempting left-
overs and relocate your guests away from
the table. However, in a restaurant or in
their homes that wouldn't work. So accept
that your relatives won't address their
weight problems until they are ready to do
so, and try to be less judgmental.
Dear Abby: I have been dating "Zack"
for a year and a half. We had discussed tak-
ing a trip to visit his friends in a couple of
months. I'm a very independent person, but


recently have had some financial
difficulties that I anticipate will
be temporary. I explained to
Zack that I wouldn't be able to
afford the trip. It would have
meant paying for my plane tick-
et, half the cost of the car we'd
have to rent and half the hotel
bill.
Zack has a steady job that pays
very well. I thought he would
speak up and offer to pay for at
least some part of my expense
for the trip, but he didn't. Was I

expecting too much, or is he just
plain cheap? - Disappointed in New
Jersey
Dear Disappointed: It would have been
a generous offer, but it appears your
boyfriend isn't the generous type. In a
sense, however, he may have given you a
priceless gift: a glimpse of what life would
be like with him in the future if the chips
were down. Please act accordingly.
Dear Abby: I'm a 13-year-old girl. I
love my mom, but she doesn't trust me.
Sometimes I would like to talk to her but
she never listens. It's like she wants me to
mess up so she can punish me.
I once tried to talk to her about sex. She
thought I was pregnant! Am I wrong for
just wanting to know? Sometimes I don't*
do anything wrong and I still get in trouble.
I have thought about running away, but
this is where my heart is. Is it me? Why


won't she trust me? I make good
grades. - Baffled in
Birmingham
Dear Baffled: Your letter
made me sad. By now, your
mother should have made it clear
that you could bring any question
to her and she would answer it -
or help you find the answer you
need.
Your mother may be uncom-
fortable talking about sex, or she
could be under stress about
something else in her life. Please
ask an adult friend or close rela-


tive to speak to her on your
behalf. Your mother may be hard on you
because she doesn't want you to mess up.
Children don't come with a list of instruc-
tions, and she may be going overboard try-
ing to protect you.

Corinthians 7:17)
This Scripture points
to two kinds of dif-
ferences. The first is
V that God distributes
different gifts to dif-
ferent people.
Consequently, we
can expect to serve
God in a variety of
MENT ways. We should
p only remember that
GOD all gifts and talents
- come from him and
chard are useful. So when
fe we consider the par-
- ticular gifts he has
given to us, each of
us should ask, "How can I use
mine to serve him best?
The second category of dif-


we perform for The Movement.
It shocked us, and we're getting
better. We like loud, high- ener-

Lord's guidance. The Lord him-
self determines the place and
position in which we are to
carry out our service. "Each one
should retain the place in life
that the Lord assigned to him,"
say Paul. Instead of dreaming
about what we might do if
things were different, we ought
to accomplish as much as we
can where we are-and be sat-
isfied in knowing that every
honorable station in life is a
great blessing from God.
God determined the part of
history in which we should par-

we should be born. The

The Lord, through his guid-

assignments. The assignment
may be the preaching or teach-
ing ministry. It may be leading
the congregation in the music
for their worship. It may also be
the assignment of establishing a
Christian home. That, too, is a
significant, a demanding,
task-one which no one has
ever done too well. It may be
the assignment of testifying to a

Katrina. Even if we don't have
the money or even the physical

give them the strength and abil-

At whatever station the Lord

Advance Auto Parts opens


store in Lake Placid


LAKE PLACID - Advance
Auto Parts opens its first store
in Lake Placid this Thursday at
799 U.S. 27 South. Company
officials cite market conditions,
strong growth potential and a
large presence of do-it-yourself
mechanics or "DiYers" as fac-
tors influencing the company's
decision to locate the 7,000
square foot store in the local
market.
"The new store employs 12
team members who offer driv-
ers a variety of free services,
including expert advice, electri-
cal system component testing
and battery and wiper blade
installation," said Tommy
Merk, Advance Auto Parts'
regional vice president.
The Lake Placid store, like
every Advance Auto Parts store
across the country, is a commu-
nity recycling center, accepting
used oil and used vehicle batter-
ies at no charge. Gary
Wunderlich manages the new
store.
"Every used battery or quart
of oil we can keep out of land-
fills benefits our environment
and our community," Merk
said. "Since 1991, Advance
Auto Parts has recycled more
than 26 million gallons of used
motor oil collected from its
nationwide network."
Advance Auto Parts offers
free parts delivery to commer-
cial customers, carries thou-
sands of parts in its in-store
inventory and provides cus-


'The new store employs 12 team

members who offer drivers a variety of

free services, including expert advice,

TOMMY MERK, Advance Audo Parks regional manager


tomers with quick access to
more than 100,000 parts within
24 hours through its PDQ (Parts
Delivered Quickly) Service.
"Advance Auto Parts strives
to educate motorists on how to
keep their vehicles in top run-
ning condition through preven-
tive maintenance and aware-
ness to potential problems,"
Mark said. "But when mechan-
ical problems do arise, the store
has the parts and expertise
ready to get drivers back on the
road. Our people and in-store
services guide drivers through
the repair process, instead of
just providing them with parts
and sending them on their
way."
In-store How-To displays,
"We're Ready with Answers"
Consumer Education Program
and the Advance Auto Parts
Television Network help edu-
cate consumers on how to
repair and replace various vehi-
cle systems and parts. Detailed
articles on the company's
Website
http://www.advanceautoparts.


com - provide consumers step-
by-step instructions for trou-
bleshooting and repairing a
variety of vehicle components
and offer seasonal driving tips.
Advance Auto Parts supports
a variety of non-profit organiza-
tions at the corporate level and
encourages its team members to
become personally involved in
various community-based char-
itable organizations.
Nationally, Advance Auto Parts
is a strong supporter of the
Make-A-Wish Foundation, The
Children's Miracle Network,
the Juvenile Diabetes Research
Foundation and the United
Way. Since 1994, Advance
Auto Parts has raised more than
$10 million for JDRF and is one
of the organization's largest
corporate supporters.
Advance Auto Parts Inc. is
based in Roanoke, Va. and is a
leading retailer of auto parts
and accessories. In 2005,
Forbes magazine named
Advance the best managed
company in America for the
retail sector.

2005 Honda Civic EX Coupe


Honda Civic is like a line of its own


The Honda Civic lineup has
so much depth and variety, it
could very well stand alone as
its own car company.
The Civic stable consists of a
two-door coupe, four-door
sedan and a two-door hatch-
back. The coupe was developed
in the United States and the
sedan in Japan to keep the
designs as distinctive as possi-
ble.
For 2005, both are available
in DX, LX and EX versions. In
addition, there's a fuel-thrifty
HX coupe and a natural-gas-
powered GX sedan to choose
from. Honda's green machine,
the gas/electric Hybrid sedan is
back with its 48/51 m.p.g.,
city/highway.
The hatchback body is saved
for the British-built Si sport
package and its 160-horsepow-
er 2.0-liter four-cylinder.


HONDA CIVIC

Type: Two-door coupe; four-door
sedan'.

Web: honda.com

'Regular' Civics arrive with a
1.7-liter four-cylinder that puts


out 115 horsepower in the DX
and LX cars and 117 horsepow-
er in the HX coupe. The Civic
EX, which adds VTEC, deliv-
ers 127 horsepower.
The price-leader DX cars are
understandably light on con-
tent, while the mid-range LX
comes with air conditioning,
power windows and locks,
cruise control and AM/FM/cas.-
sette stereo. The top-drawer EX
adds 15-inch wheels, ABS,
moonroof and CD player.
Along with a "Value" pack-
age that combines a CD sound
system, air conditioning and
center console is a new Special
Edition package that you can
add to EX models. Key content
includes an MP3-computer-file-
compatible stereo, rear spoiler,
leather-wrapped steering wheel
and exclusive wheels.

Red Devils deliver


lesson to Pirates

Avon Park sweeps first-year team

from Braden River for district win


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK - Growing
pains are inevitable for
Braden River, and the Lady
Red Devils were glad to
inflict them on Thursday.
The first-year school was
no match for District 10-4A
foe Avon Park, which
whipped the visiting Lady
Pirates 25-9, 25-15, 25-10..
"The biggest challenge
would be we have no players


who have any
experience,"
said Braden
River head
coach Kevin
Thompson,
whose team is
still looking for
its first - win. ,-
"Every single
one of our play-
ers has never
played volley-
ball before.
We're basically
starting, literal-


'These g


working

better an
much ha
so that's
like to se

CHRIS'


ly, from scratch."
Yet the Devils (2-4, 2-3)
are far from masters yet them-
selves, so Avon Park head
coach Christie Hipps was
thankful for the opportunity
to extend her bench and work
out a few kinks.
"Everything is coming
together. These girls are
working much better and
much harder, so that's what I
like to see," she said. "I know
it's not going to happen
overnight, but eventually,
when we get to the end,
everybody should look back

"We are off to a solid start,"

"I'm real happy to see all the county

squad.

great job,'" she said.
Attacking from the back
row, better on-court commu-
nication and improved serves
were Hipps' three points of
focus, and the coach liked
what she saw from a number
of players, including Mary
Rose Heston, who had two
kills, four assists and four
aces.
"She's improved overall as
far as getting behind the ball,
digging the ball,
as well as spik-

muc said. "She's

from Hipps,
who is favoring
simple effectiveness over
pure power.
"A lot of them want to hit it
hard, get it in there so they
can get an ace, but sometimes
some of them aren't as con-
sistent as others, so I'm just
telling them to get the ball
over the net so we can play."
Such basic instruction
abounded on the other side of
the net, where the daunting
task of molding raw players

Swimming


Dragons



nearly



perfect

By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - Forget about
Hurricane Ophelia churning out in the
Atlantic. Thursday night, the Lake
Placid Green Dragons were nearly the
perfect storm in the Avon Park pool.
Lake Placid swimmers won all but
two of the swimming events on the way
to dominating a four-team meet as the
boys finished with 211 points to Avon
Park's 115, Haines City with 97 and
Ridge Community with 68, while the
Lady Dragons racked up 222 points,
with Avon Park second at 144, Haines
City third with 76 and Ridge Community
with 63.
"I'm very proud," Lake Placid coach
Cindy Rivers said. "We did stack the
meet because I didn't know anything
about Haines City or Ridge, so I wasn't
sure what we were dealing with. The
kids came through tremendously."
The domination started with the first
event, as Dragons Thomas Creel, David
Moore, Derrick Hendrie and Michael
Wilkes teamed up to win the boys 200-
yard medley relay in 1 minute, 58.22
seconds, while the girls team of Danielle
Rivers, Robyn Creel, LaCae Lightsey
and Maggie Gismondi finished first in
2:09.67.
Ron Franklin won the 200 freestyle in
2:15.99, with Lightsey winning in
2:24.03, followed by the 200 individual
medley, which saw wins by Moore
(2:32.48) and Robyn Creel (2:34.75)..
Gismondi won the 50 freestyle in
27.73 before Avon Park's Jon-Michael
Birt broke the Dragons' streak by taking
the boys race in 23.79. The Creel family
got the Dragons back on track in the 100
butterfly, with Marbelly Creel taking the
girls heat in 1:15.89 followed by Thomas

"It makes it difficult, but it
also makes me realize how
bright the future is," Thompson
said. "All in all they're doing
well, but it's growing pains."
A glimmer of what
Thompson hopes will be the


future was seen late in the third
game, when Lauren Earl set up
freshman Sarah Tickner for an
impressive spike, one of heir
Team-leading three kills on the
night.
"She's going to be a phenom-
enal player. She's got all the
tools," Thompson said. "As
long as she keeps developing
the way she's doing, by the time
she's a senior she's, going to be
a darn good player."


Tennis

Federer, Hewitt to meet in semis


Associated Press
NEW YORK - Roger
Federer sure knows how to kilb
a party.
Federer's quiet brilliance
tranquilized U.S. Open fans one
night after they roared nonstop
for Andre Agassi and James
Blake.
Watching Federer, the
defending champion and top
seed, roll past Argentine David
Nalbandian 6-2, 6-4, 6-1
Thursday night was like watch
ing a rerun of a mediocre movie :
that has one star, no plot and :;o
drama.
Federer was too good - too
strong with his serves, too[
quick with his returns, too sharp
on his groundstrokes and vol
leys - to let the match become
anything more than a pre-
dictable step into the semifinals
against Lleyton Hewitt, a vin-
ner earlier in the day in five sets


against Finland's Jarkko
Nieminen.
Federer beat Hewitt in the
Open final last year and has
won their last eight matches,
four in Grand Slam events,
going back to the 2004
Australian Open.
"Maybe we had enough
men's tennis over the last few
days," said Federer, the only
semifinalist who did not play
five sets.
Federer didn't shy away
from saying that he couldn't
play much better than he did
against the 11th-seeded
Nalbandian in a 1-hour, 40-
minute sweep.
"I played great last year and
it's just looking great again,"
Federer said. "It's exactly the
Sway I should be playing at this
stage of tournament because the
-opponents are only getting
tougher."


By PETE HERRERA
Associated Press
VANCOUVER, British
Columbia - Lucas Glover
stood in the middle of the 18th
fairway Thursday waiting to hit
his second shot to the par-4
hole. He checked his yardage
book, waved to a fan in the
gallery and practiced his back
swing. He looked like a man
who knew what he was doing.
For most of the day, he did.
The second-year PGA Tour
player from Greenville, S.C.,
made eight birdies and shot a 5-
under 65 to share the first-
round lead in the Canadian
Open with veteran Mark
Calcavecchia.
Glover and Calcavecchia
took advantage of near-perfect
afternoon conditions on the
tight, tree-lined and rough-rich
Shaughnessy course.
Jasper Parnevik, who played
in the morning, shot a 66.
Defending champion Vijay
Singh didn't make a birdie and
had three bogeys in a round of
73. The world's second-ranked
player and leading money win-
ner the past two years again
struggled with his putter, miss-
ing several birdie putts from
inside 15 feet.
Singh, who declined to be
interviewed, never got anything
going and having to wait
through some slow play proba-


bly didn't help. He and playing
partner Stuart Appleby waited
nearly 30 minutes when three
groups stacked up on the par-3
12th hole.
On the next hole Appleby's
tee shot caught a tree and
dropped into a small creek
about 100 yards from the tee. It
took several minutes to locate
the ball. Singh, whose tee shot
found a fairway bunker,
bogeyed that hole and the next.
after his tee shot again found a
bunker.
It has been a feast or famine
year for Glover, who has six
top-10 finishes but also has
missed the cut 11 times. It wv as
more of the same Thursday.
He had the lead alone at 6
under, but bogeyed the par-4
15th, where his drive found the
rough. He then missed 8-foot
birdie putts on 16 and 18.
"I had a couple of chances
late and didn't make the putts,
but you can't be disappointed
with 65 around here," Glover
said.
Glover double-bogeyed the
par-4 ninth, where his second
shot out of a fairway bunker
ended up behind a grandstand.
He then holed a bunker shot for
birdie on the 485-yard 11th
hole, the toughest hole on the
course, then birdied the next
three holes. He also made a 35-
footer.on the par-5 seventh.

LaTech ready

for diversion

of taking on

No. 10 Gators

By MARK LONG
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - The
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs have
dealt with death, destruction
and displacement the last two
weeks.
They're ready for a diver-
sion.
The Bulldogs get a short
break from the problems
caused by Hurricane Katrina
when they open the season at
No. 10 Florida (1-0) on
Saturday.
"A lot of our players have
lost everything," coach Jack
Bicknell said. "It really hits
home."
LaTech's campus in Ruston
is more than 300 miles north-
west of New Orleans, far
enough to escape the devasta-
tion caused by Katrina but
hardly immune from it.
More than a dozen players
lost their homes when Katrina
cut a swath along the Gulf
Coast on Aug. 29. Many of
them spent several anxious
days awaiting word from fami-
ly members.
Bicknell canceled two prac-
tices to help players track down
family members.
Tight end ThadThad Williams of
Independence, La., reached his
family after two frantic days.
Backup quarterback David
Allen, of New Orleans, finally
contacted his father and grand-
father Sunday.
"He said, 'Coach, the weight
of the world has been lifted off
my shoulders,"' Bicknell said.
Defensive lineman Oren
Lewis wasn't so lucky. He lost
an uncle, a sister-in-law and a
godchild in the storm.
"It was a very sad situation,"
Bicknell said.
It could have been worse.
Lewis' mother decided to ride
out the hurricane in the coastal
town of Bay St. Louis, Miss.
Lewis waited five days to hear
from her, then had started driv-
ing home Saturday to search
for her when she called to tell
him she was.alive.
"Thank goodness his mom
was OK," Bicknell said. "He
couldn't just call down there,
and he couldn't go down there
(for several days)."
Although everyone was
accounted for, the suffering
was far from over. At least 100
family members have since
relocated to Ruston after losing
their homes.
"They basically had the
clothes on their back, and that
was it," Bicknell said'. "It's
been a real tough week. ... It's
not like it just goes away. It's
not like it's over. It's not over at
all; it continues to go on. The
people are still here. They still
need to be taken care of. There
are just so many ramifications
to it. It's just overwhelming."
The Bulldogs also have
taken an active role in helping
Katrina victims.
Players and coaches signed
autographs and handed out
candy to hurricane victims at
the Ruston Civic Center and
Trinity Methodist Church last
week.
Receiver Freddie King
addressed the Civic Center
crowd, saying "I just want you
to know that we are with you.
We hope everything is going to
be OK. If you need anything,
we are here for you."
The Bulldogs backed it up,
too.
They set up beds at several
shelters around Ruston and
helped move more than 80 peo-
ple into a campus dormitory.
"The fact that the team really
pitched in, I think the people up
here appreciate that," Bicknell
said. "One thing I know for


sure, you appreciate what you
have. A simple dorm room
became everything. Just being
able to have a bed and three hot
meals and four walls and a
roof, that's something to really
be thankful for."
Bicknell acknowledged that
it would have been difficult to
play last week in the wake of
Katrina. But he said his coach-
es and players - as well as
their friends and family mem-
bers - are eager for Saturday's
game against the Gators.
"It'll be a good diversion for
everyone," said Bicknell."

and Wilkes was the boys winner in 54.91. Katie
Altvater then won the girls 500 freestyle in
6:49.46, with Haines City taking the boys win.
It was all Lake Placid the rest of the way, how-
ever. Rivers, Gismondi, Lightsey and Robyn
Creel won the 200 free relay in 1:53.12, with
Wilkes, Thomas Creel, Lee Lovett and Moore
teaming up for a 1:37.45.
Rivers took the girls 100 backstroke win in
1:15.79, with Evan Montgomery winning the
boys race in 1:24.69, and the Creels added anoth-
er event sweep to their night in the 100 breast-


stroke, with Robyn finishing in 1:20.77 and
Thomas in 1:08.60.
The Dragons capped their night with Katie
Altvater, Marbelly Creel, Mary Taylor and Shelly
Lambert winning the 400 freestyle relay in
4:44.47, followed by Lovett, Franklin, Hendrie
and Montgomery finishing first in 4:10.82.
Red Devils Jose Rivera and Renee Plummer
won the diving competition.
Rivers said the showing on Thursday was just
a continuation of her team's improvement in the
still-young season.
"The times are dropping, all the kids are doing
well and their techiques are getting better," she
said. "I'm.really impressed because we have a lot
of new swimmers. We had some that dropped
five, 10 seconds today. It was a great meet."


NBA

Spurs, Heat set extra exhibition game to,

benefit Hurricane Katrina relief efforts


Associated Press
MIAMI - The Miami Heat
and the NBA champion San
Antonio Spurs will play each
other in an extra exhibition
game to raise money for
Hurricane Katrina relief.
The game will be played Oct.
10 in Miami. It will be the first
preseason game for both teams.
As the host team, the Heat
will donate all its proceeds from
ticket sales, concessions, park-
ing and retail sales to the
Americarq Red Cross.
"We as an organization will
do just about anything to supply
comfort, compassion, money
and anything else we can to


help the victims of Hurricane
Katrina," Heat president Pat
Riley said Thursday. "The
Spurs and the Heat getting
together to put on this exhibi-
tion to raise as much money as
we can for the victims is an
indication of what both organi-
zations and the NBA is all
about."
Tickets will be sold at regular
season prices, in an effort to
maximize the contribution.
Along with the revenue
donation, selected vendors will
donate their service fee, and all
arena employees will donate
their time for that night's game.
"This game will give every-


one associated with our organi-
zation the chance to contribute
their time and talents in the
name of raising money for
those affected by this tragedy,"
said Spurs General Manager
R.C. Buford.
"We are honored to partici-
pate in this event and look for-
ward to the opportunity to give
back."

this year. First-year coach Scott
Morgan expects junior Shaun
Dietrich and sophomore Zach
Lloyd to lead the way for the
team. Both have impressed the
coach in practice.
The team roster also includes
senior Todd Bozeman and
sophomores David Mitchell,
Omar Villeda, Scott Waltz, and
Glaston Quashie.
"This year I am really push-
ing the kids to have more team
spirit and to help each other,"
Morgan said. "We are really
working well with one another
and not only do they run the
workouts, I am there right
beside them coaching and push-
ing them for better perform-
ance."

compete in District 6-2A with

fy for regionals for the first

believe will show significant
improvement this season,"
Brooks said.
The roster will include three
newcomers - 10th-grader
Victoria Cox, freshman Faizah
Belliot and sixth-grader Jordan
Edwards.
"Our team goal for the boys
is to make it to regionals,"

includes tougher schools, but it
is still a possibility. The same
goal applies for our girls team."
