Avon Park


to argue


against dual


taxation

By PHIL ATI1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Avon Park residents don't like
having to pay the county for services they don't
need.
They like even less paying more than they
pay the city for those same services.
That's why the city of Avon Park and the
Highlands County commission will have a
workshop Tuesday to discuss what to do about
it.
The county collects ad valorem taxes, just
like the city does. The Avon Park rate is 7.75
mills. The county's is 9 mills. Avon Park City
Manager C.B. Shirey said there is a constitu-
tional and statutory prohibition against being
taxed by the county, if in-town residents don't
necessarily receive those services.
They include such things as the sheriff's
road patrol, planning services, the zoning code,
code enforcement, road construction and main-
tenance, fire services, or administrative servic-
es.
Florida law states that counties can count
city residents as taxable since the properties are
in a city that is in the county. One side effect bf
that is dual taxation. A business, for example,
has to have a municipal and county occupa-
tional license.
This Tuesday, officials will only address the
property tax.
Shirey suggests county staff should identify
services that benefit residents in the unincorpo-
rated areas immediately outside the city, and
set up municipal service benefit units or
municipal benefit taxing units to raise revenue
for just those services.
Then the county could lower the base mill-
age rate for the whole city based on the servic-
es in-towh residents don't receive.
Shirey said his staff is able to manage a
budget on 7.75 mills, although not without
some sacrifices.
City costs are going up every year, too, he
said, especially with fuel costs and cost of liv-
ing increases for employees.
The main reason the city and county have
been able to keep the same millage rate is
because property values have gone up, made
for higher assessments, and brought more rev-
enue with them.

Local teen receives liver transplant


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
AVON PARK -- There 'is hope in
every tragedy.
For Tamika Hill that tragedy was
in the form cd' Hu,� icane Katrina.
The hope was for a new lease on life.
Her liver transplant finally came
through Wednesday after sitting on
the transplant list for six months.
The transplant was from one of the
thousands of last month's hurricane
victims, according to her mom
Patricia Hill.
On Tuesday morning Patricia Hill
received the call that the transplant
for Tamika had come through.
"We really weren't expecting it at
this time," Hill said. "And then I
found out it was the liver of one of
the Louisiana hurricane victims."


The bittersweet conditions of
Tamika's transplant have only served
to make the Hills more thankful.
"We just know that through God
all things are possible and everything
happens for a reason," Hill said.
At 7 a.m. Wednesday Tamika had
her liver transplant. The surgery was
performed at Shands Hospital at the
University of Florida, Gainesville.
After five hours of surgery,
Tamika was moved to the intensive
care unit where she will remain until
at least today.
"After Sunday it will depend on
how her body handles it," Patricia
Hill said.
Currently Tamika's condition is
stable, but she is not out of the woods
yet.
The recovery time after her trans-


plant will be six months.
Tamika, an Avon Park High
School sophomore, began her battle
with sclerosis of the liver in July
2002.
Her mother first noticed some-
thing was wrong when Tamika began
to exhibit a yellow coloration.
"She was jaundiced so the doctors
knew it was something to do with her-,
liver," Patricia Hill said.
Six months later, doctors per-
formed a liver biopsy and deter-
mined that Tamika was suffering
from sclerosis of the liver.
The Hills then began the arduous
process of waiting for Tamika to be
addqd to the national transplant list.
Their wait ended March 15, 2005,

Victims grateful for early help

Volunteers from the Orange Blossom Baptist Association in Avon Park have just returned after a trip to
Hattiesburg, Miss., in which they helped victims of Hurricane Katrina. Pine trees crashed through the
roof of one home (above). Most of the damage in Hattiesburg was from the wind. The volunteers are (at
right, back row from left) Peter and Earl Thorn of Avon Park, Jenny Wells of Avon Park, Don Crocker
and Chuck Brown, both of Sarasota, (kneeling) the Rev. Robert Thorn of First United Methodist
Church, Avon Park and (sitting) the Rev. Mike Roberts of Bible Fellowship Church, Sebring.


Orange Blossom Baptist

volunteers offer helping hand

By KATHY GRANT
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - A woman lost
her shoes when she returned from
inspecting her home steeped in
sewage, in a town north of New
Orleans. The mud. sucked her
footwear right from under her.
This is one of the startling
images the members of the cleanup
crew of the Orange Blossom
Baptist Association recalled during
their stay in Hattiesburg, Miss. The
woman was looking for friends in
Hattiesburg, which was one of
many areas damaged by Hurricane
Katrina.
The image of the woman and the
daily challenge of staying clean in hot, steamy weather amidst
dirty work were some of the things the members will never forget.
"It was H-O-T. Capital 'HOT'," said the Rev. Mike Roberts of
Fellowship Baptist Church in Sebring. "Any time you get on a roof
it's hot. We stank so bad that even God felt sorry for us."
They were able to take showers, thanks to the people from the
local housing authority. They slept on cots and in sleeping bags on
the Sunday school room floors of a Baptist church in town. They
ate from the feeding unit, also supplied by the Baptist association.
The Southern Baptist Convention directed what crews went where.
Fortunately the church where the volunteers stayed had electric-

County to discuss more about Denton


By PHIL ATTI1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The problems
at Lake Denton have gotten
worse since county commis-
sioners closed the public boat
ramp.
In early August commission-
ers shut down the ramp so they
could get a handle on how to
police the lake off Memorial
Drive, south of Avon Park.'
Since then, Commissioner
Barbara Stewart,said, cars still
crowd Lake Denton Drive, and
she called the amount of trash
left behind "unbelievable."
On Tuesday commissioners
will have a workshop to get
homeowners, boaters, scuba
divers and law enforcement to
work together on the issue.
Stewart said closing the ramp
only reduced liability the coun-
ty: might face from having
boaters and swimmers in the
same area.
Signs posted there prohibit


swimming, but that has not
stopped people from diving in
or swimming. Lake Denton res-
idents have reported graffiti,
vandalism, littering and lewd
behavior.
The county placed portable
toilets near the boat ramp to
handle, sanitation. Danny
Enfinger of Lake Denton
Management Inc., the company
that runs a church retreat camp
on the lake, has offered to rent
his facilities to divers..
As for curbing some of the
undesirable behavior, commis-
sioners asked the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office to con-
sider patrolling the area more
heavily.
County Administrator Carl
Cool once designed a parking
area on the east side of the lake,
but residents rejected it because
it might attract people.
One resident, Dave Simpson,
said the lake's Secchi depth -
measure of visibility - is 30


feet. That's considered excel-
lent for scuba diving, which
brings people from out of coun-
ty.
The facilities are not up to
par. The people coming are lit-
tering, he said, with dirty dia-
pers and beer bottles. Also,
someone has shot the Port-o-
lets, Simpson said.
He, Commissioners Bob
Bullard, Guy Maxcy and Edgar
Stokes, visited the site last
week.
"It wasn't a good sight to
me," Maxcy said.
In Tuesday's agenda, initial
cost estimates to upgrade the
restrooms from Port-o-lets and
install parking spaces run
roughly $61,000 - pricey,
Maxcy said, for only 40 feet of
right of way. Buying more land
could cost $125,000-$150,000.
"How we solve the Lake
Denton issue will affect how we
solve issues in the future,"
Stewart said.

SEBRING - Florida Ridge
Big Brothers Big Sisters has a
new addition.
Executive Director Gary
Araujo joined the chapter in
August and is enjoying "set-
tling in" to his new position.
Araujo and his family moved
from Maine in January of this
year.
In Maine, Araujo was execu-
tive director of two agencies, an
organization for adolescent
group homes and a hospice.
The work he does for Florida
Ridge Big Brothers Big Sisters
is a welcomed change.
"It is nice to be on the pre-
ventive side of things," Araujo
said. "Once they (the adoles-
cents) are in a group home
things are different."
Big Brothers Big Sisters is
the oldest and largest youth
mentoring organization ,in the
United States.
The program matches adults
with children, ages 5 to 18 in
one-to-one relationships.
Araujo is working with vol-
unteers to improve and expand
the services of the Florida
Ridge Big Brothers Big Sisters.
"Right now the board is


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Two
Democratic contenders for
Congressional District 16 will
attend the Highlands County
Democratic Party Hoedown
from 5-9 p.m. Saturday at the
Highlands Shrine Club.
One of the candidates is edu-
cator David Lutin. The other is
financial expert Tim Mahoney.
Lutin is a public school
teacher in Palm Beach County.
Previously, he taught in the
Miami-Dade County school
system and was regional vice-


looking at a lot of possibilities,"
Araujo said, " We are looking to
expand the program within the
schools.",
One option within the pro-
gram is matching high school
students with elementary stu-
dents.
"We would like to send high
school students to the elemen-
tary schools for one hour a
week," Araujo said. "This part
of the program would be more
educational with math skills or
perhaps social studies related
games."
Another goal is to recruit
more volunteers. He said the
chapter has 18 matches between
volunteers and children and at
least that many children on a
waiting list.
"With so many waiting, we
would be excited with just 10
new volunteers," he said.
Currently there are more
female matches than male
matches.
However, there is still a need
for both "brothers" and "sis-
ters" in the program.
"There are many boys wait-
ing for a big brother," Araujo
said. "We need volunteers who
want to spend time with a
young person - to see their


president with Primerica
Financial Services.
Mahoney is the chairman and
chief operating officer of
vFinance Inc., a financial serv-
ices firm. He is also the founder
and president of The Center for
Innovative Entrepreneurship.
He owns a.ranch in Venus.
Democratic candidates for
several state offices have been
invited to the gala as well.
Gubernatorial candidates are
Scott Maddox, Jim Davis, Rod
Smith and Carol Castagnero.
Candidates for Chief


faces light up."
According to the Big
Brothers Big Sisters Web site at
http://www.BigBrothersBigSist
ers.org, studies have shown that
there are 14 million children
considered at risk in this coun-
try. Ten million are within the
ages served by the organization.
In order to serve the needs of
these children, Big Brothers
Big Sisters has embarked on an
aggressive growth plan with the
goal of serving 1 million youths
by the year 2010.
Potential Big Brothers and
Big Sisters are screened with
personal interviews by a trained
staff members. They must sub-
mit to criminal and background
checks and provide three refer-
ences.
Those accepted into the pro-
gram are then fingerprinted at
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
.For details, call Florida
Ridge Big Brothers Big Sisters
at 402-9001.
On Thursday, Sept. 29, from
5-7 p.m., the chapter will have
an open house 279 U.S. 27
North in the Village Fountain
Plaza. Those who plan to attend
should call ahead.

Sebring bids goodbye to veteran, councilman, friend


By PHIL AUTINGER
News-Sun
S SEBRING - Sebring said
farewell this week to a former
councilman, World War II vet-
eran, and perhaps the first optometrist in
Sebring.
Dr. Fred T. "Doc" Fields died Sept. 8,
2005, in Tampa. He was 78.
Born on March 23, 1927, to Roger G.
and Shirley (Lasseter) Fields in Miami.
Fields first moved to Sebring in 1952,
after serving as a sergeant major after
World War II during United States occu-
pation of Japan,
His son, Alan Fields of Naples, ,iid li,
dad and mom, Elfriede (1 hiIecii n Fields,
first met as a spontaneous set-up by a
physician friend. Dr. Geoffrey Beaumont
called Fred Fields at his downtown
Sebring optometrist practice saying, "get
over here now."
Fred Fields left a patient sitting in the
chair and went. Beaumont introduced him
to "Elfi," and told him to take her over for
a cup of coffee at Gilbert's. So he did.
Fred and Elfriede Fields have been
married for 49 years. They had three chil-
dren. Fred Fields is survived by his wife,
Elfriede; sons, Alan of Naples, and Brian
of Orlando; daughter, Darice Dennis of


Tampa; and two grand-
children.
Fred Fields served on.
the Sebring City Council
for 10 years, from the
1980s to early 1990s. He
helped the city deal with
difficulties from the new
sewer system's failing lift


FIELDS


stations and the diesel-powered Phillips
Utilities plant.
While in the U.S. Army, Fred Fields
served as prison administrator at Sugaimo
Prison, which housed the 13 major
Japanese war criminals, including the
Gen. Hideki Tojo and the mysterious Los
Angele biotn lkulko Topiri. .),o known as
"Tokyo Rose."
Elfriede grew up in Germany during
the war. In N1I3, her father sent her and
her brother with their mother in Germany.
She wouldn't return to the United States
until 1947, about the same time her future
husband returned home.
In 2004, he received the Paul Harris
Fellow Award from the Sebring Rotary
Club, and in 1992, he coordinated Desert
Shield Appreciation Day.
His son, Akln. remembers his father
was \ worried the Gulf War should not be
like Vietnam, with soldiers blamed for


political decisions made above them.
On Sunday, Jan. 13, 1991, the Sebring
High School gymnasium overflowed with
emotion as 2,000 people gathered to
honor loved ones in the Middle East and
their families.
Fred Fields even orchestrated a
Christmas care package delivery, Alan
Fields said, to several members of
American troops in the demilitarized zone
between North Korea and South Korea.
One of Darice's old classmates was serv-
ing there.
Fred Fields was a member of the First
United Methodist Church; Sebring Lions
Club, American Optometric Associati,-n.
Lake Region; and a, life member of the
Florida Optometric Association,
He also served on the Barnett Bank
board of directors for 28 years, and was a
former member of the Sebring Library
Board.
Funeral services will be at 1 p.m.
Monday at Stephenson-Nekln Funeral
Home Chapel, Sebring. The Re%. Ron
Daniels will officiate.
Visitation with the family will begin at
11 j inm Mem~.inal donations; may be made
to either Rotars Club Charities Inc. to
support Hurricane Katrina relief, or to
Sebring Lions Club for sight preservation.

Vanscooter

charged with

illegal

contracting
SEBRING - A local man,
previously charged with ille-

charged in yet another case.

Dean
Vanscooter,
31, of
Sebring has
been charged
under war-
VANSCOOTER rants for
grand theft
and contracting without a
license. Bond is set at $1,500.
On Dec. 6, 2004, a 56-
year-old woman with a home
on Tangier Avenue in Sebring
told Highlands County sher-
iff's deputies that she had
water damage and a leaking


roof in August 2004. She was
told about Vanscooter, and
contacted him for repairs.
He arrived on Aug. 9,
2004, took some measure-
ments, and returned on Aug.

tion that he did not have a
contractor's license.

Red Cross gets 20 volunteers County considers project under

f . In ,i nfinnal a"ffne $1 million certificate issue


NUE EEU.El l PEEVME I VNIV.h t


By PHIL AITINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - On Friday 10
people began American Red
Cross training to help
Hurricane Katrina victims, and
another 10 will train next
Friday.
Art Harriman, director of the
Highlands County American
Red Cross Service Center, is
willing to set up individual
classes for those who need it.
This is the highest number of
new volunteers the service cen-
ter has brought in at any time,
Harriman said.
On Wednesday, about 60
prospective volunteers came to
a meeting at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center.
About half were experienced
volunteers; the rest were new.
Many wanted to be trained
quickly so they could be
deployed directly to disaster
areas in Louisiana, Mississippi


and Alabama.
"It's the biggest response we
ever had," Harriman said.
Depending on need, the Red
Cross may call up volunteers
within the next month or two
for a two- or three-week rota-
tion. Assignments longer than
that period become emotionally
draining on the volunteers,
Harriman said.
He also wants them trained to
assist the local disaster team
where they would handle fires,
floods and storms.
First, local volunteers must
get oriented and respond\ to
local disasters. They then take
classes on mass care - or feed-
ing and handing out supplies to
victims - as well.as shelter
operations, damage assessment,
family services, first aid, and
cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
After a complete a back-
ground check, the volunteers
can submit a national applica-

The Red Cross Chapter in
Sarasota sent 31 people on
Sept. 2. Harriman said, but few
Florida chapters have been
called so far. In the meantime,
he will ask those volunteers left

will mean less training later.
He only asks that they be

RELIEF
Continued from 1A
ity, so the crew had air condi-
tioning at night. The church was
across the street from a hospi-
tal.
"We were the first response
to the area, (two days after the
storm) so we had five teams" of
cleanup crews from Florida,
said Jenny Wells of First Baptist
Church of Avon Park, who was
in charge of the Orange
Blossom Baptist Association's
cleanup and recovery efforts.
Two trailers from the cleanup
crew went out - one loaded
with tools and the other with
food to sustain the volunteers.
"You name it. We had it. (The
trailer) is a shop on wheels,"
Roberts said.
According to Dr. James
Coates, general director of the
Orange Blossom Baptist
Association relief efforts, at
least 40 or more volunteers
assisted in both feeding and
recovery. However, the associa-
tion worked closely with other
churches in Highlands County,
including Bible Fellowship and
First United Methodist Church
of Avon Park.
"The people were so very
grateful to see us and we were
telling them we were respond-
ing to their efforts after Charley,
Frances and Jeanne," said the
Rev. Robert Thorn, pastor of
First United Methodist Church
of Avon Park. His sons, Earl,
19, and Peter, 14, joined them
along with two men from
Sarasota.
In fact, the feeding crew and
the cleanup crew were prepar-
ing to respond two days before
the storm hit land, Coates said.-
Fortunately, Hattiesburg
wasn't hit as badly as New
Orleans; however, heavy winds
downed many large pine trees
that crashed into homes. "It
wasn't as badly hit as Charley
was here," Roberts said.
As they discovered individ-
ual needs, the volunteers
worked closely with the
Southern Baptist chaplaincy
program. One family required
medical attention. Many others
were desperately trying to get in
touch with loved ones.
In any case, the crew was

able to act independently. "We
didn't take anything (in the
form of supplies) away from the
community," Thorn said.
They worked from dawn to
about 9 p.m. Everyone, includ-
ing Wells, knocked on doors,
encouraged citizens, sawed
limbs and repaired roofs.
"(Jenny) did everything but
fall," Roberts said.
A total of 24 roofs and five
cut trees completed their week's
worth of efforts. They left
Highlands County at 4 a.m. on
Aug. 31 and drove straight to
Hattiesburg. They returned late
Wednesday afternoon after
stopping over in Lake City. The
first thing they did after arriving
home was "take a long shower
and sleep," Wells said.
"The families were so gra-
cious to us," Wells said. One
man was so grateful he grilled
hamburgers for them.
Sometimes the volunteers
had to turn down a job because
it would have caused a lot more
damage "And that was hard,"
Roberts said.
Along with the grateful
expressions on the faces of the
citizens of Hattiesburg, much
more was taken away than was
giv.pn.
"One of the things I came


away with is coming to a com-
munity and meeting its needs
and being able to meet the
needs of the whole person in the
name of God," Wells said.
"(It's) building relationships


with the community and shar-
ing Christ."
Roberts agreed. "We saw a
need. We did it here and we've
done it there. That's a sign of
agape love."


County now has one


solid waste hauler


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING -- County com-
missioners approved a contract
to have one garbage hauler for
unincorporated areas at their
* meeting Tuesday.
Florida Recycling is selling
its Highlands County operation
to Republic Services of Florida.
The county has used two
haulers since mandatory
garbage pickup began 15 years
ago.
Residential garbage collec-
tion was split between the two
haulers' with competition for
commercial contracts in the
entire county.
County Attorney Ross
Macbeth said Reliable
Sanitation got a rate increase
when its contract was renewed
this year, effective Oct. 1.
Florida Recycling did not. The
new contract will be the same.
Currently, Reliable charges
$9.33 per month per residential


dwelling unit, or $111.96 per
year. Starting Oct. 1, the rate
will be $10.16 per month per
residential dwelling unit, or
$121.92 per year.
The rate for people previous-
ly under Florida Recycling will
stay at $10.33 per month per
residential dwelling unit, or
$123.96 per year.
Sebring resident Ray Napper
had no doubts Reliable
Sanitation would do a good job.
However, the original ordi-
nance, he said, makes it impos-
sible for one company to buy
the other out.
"The county is creating a
monopoly. Rates won't go
down, thanks to increased fuel
cost and less competition," he
said.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
asked how the county could go
back to two haulers if it chose
to do that. Macbeth said they
would have to go back to the
contract.


Group prepares to make second trip


By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Cries of help
for supplies for victims of
Hurricane Katrina are expected
today in area churches. Barring
any unforeseen adversity, a
feeding unit and a cleanup-and-
recovery unit from the Orange
Blossom Baptist Association
are expected to go out for a sec-
ond time in exactly two weeks.
The units are expected to go
to "a more remote area" than
Hattiesburg, Miss., where they
first served in the beginning of
this month, said Jenny Wells,
coordinator of the cleanup and
recovery unit for the associa-
tion.
"If people could just buy a
package of underwear," said the
Rev. Robert Thorn of First
United Methodist Church. One
church in Zolfo Springs is try-
ing to collect 10,000 teddy
bears. Other individuals -and


churches are attempting to
obtain toys.
Churches in the Baptist asso-
ciation may try to take up a col-
lection for gasoline for the
cleanup and feeding units. The
local cleanup and recovery
group alone spent $1,200 on
fuel. "Some communities were
charging $6 a gallon," Thorn
said.
Brenda Nelson of First
Baptist Church of Sebring and
her daughter Tiffany Smith of
Fellowship Baptist Church of
Sebring are collecting toiletries
for the hurricane victims. The
items will go out with the
Baptist units when they leave
Sunday, Sept. 25. The offices
and youth groups of both
churches are gathering supplies.
The deadline is Friday, Sept.
23. Those who wish can donate
cash or write checks to: First
Baptist Church of Sebring. On
the score line write,


"Benevolent Disaster Relief."
Or, they can donate to: Bible
Fellowship Church. On the line
below donors can write
"Disaster relief."
Call your local church or any
of the named churches if you
have any questions.
The cash donations will be
used to buy anything for toi-
letries leftover, said Nelson.
Also, people can donate suit-
able, used clothing in good con-


edition or new underwear.
"I've talked to several pas-
tors in Louisiana and
Mississippi," she added. "What
we've been through is nothing
compared to what they've been
through there. The Lord has
blessed us. We wanted to do
something for them because
they did something for us."
The telephone number for
First Baptist Church is 385-
5154; for Bible Fellowship
Church is 385-1024.


Want to help?

Aside from cash donations the following per-
sonal items can be donated: hand towels, wash-
cloths, combs, toothbrushes, toothpaste, nail
files, hand lotion, hand soap, bandages, insect
repellent, deodorant, shampoo, razors, hand
sanitizers, feminine products, paper towels and
toilet tissue.


TEEN
Continued from 1A
when Tamika finally made it
onto the transplant list.
Just seven days later, Tamika
was placed at the top of the
transplant list.
Patricia Hill was thankful,
but at the same time she was
aware that for their blessing to
happen, someone else would
have to die.
"We just prayed that whoev-
er it was had accepted God into
their life," Hill said.
In June of this year, a missed
phone call further postponed
Tamika's transplant.
Patricia Hill comforted her
daughter by telling her it "just
wasn't meant to be" at that
time.
This week, in the wake of the
Hurricane Katrina tragedy, the
Hills received the call they had
been waiting for.
Shands is currently helping
the Hills look for a home aid
nurse who can give Tamika
drugs intravenously every 12
hours.
The drugs are used to sup-
press her auto immune system,
something she will have to be
aware of the rest of her life.
"If we can't find someone
Tamika will have to stay at the
hospital another five weeks,"
Hill said. "Until I can be trained
to do it for her."

Tuffley makes it through first year


Reflecting back
after one year of
Tuffin' It With
Tuffley column
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
I didn't notice until this
week, that last week was
the one-year anniversary
of the Tuffin' It With Tuffley
column featured in the News-
Sun.
So I thought a retrospective
look, being timely, might be
fun.
Last Sept. 5, I had just sur-
vived bussing tables at Dot's
Restaurant in Sebring Square.
I remember that particular
effort especially, because it was
both my first assignment, and I
actually got to work on the job.
I was surprised lifting plastic
tubs filled with dishes wore me
out so quickly. I remember I
left exhausted.
But I left exhausted from
roofing, garbage collecting,
and firefighting too, and I
almost drowned while life-
guarding (by the way, I learned
lifeguards are not paid by the
life).
I laughed a lot wherever I
went, but I laughed the most I
think, learning about medical
transcriptionists.
That job is perfect for come-
dy because it is like the child's
game of telephone.
Someone whispers a phrase
into another person's ear, who
in turn whispers it into another,
and so on down the line.
The difference between what
the last person hears, and what
the first person said, is often
hilarious.
That is the world of the
medical transcriptionist, as


they try to understand what an
overworked doctor has said
quickly.
The year brought home yet
again, how deeply computers
have changed our world.

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Gordon Delp, owner of Philly Grille in Sebring, serves up pancakes, grits and scrambled eggs



Customers find a true taste of


Philadelphia in Philly Grille


By'SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Gordon Delp
is from Philadelphia and he's
eager to share his style of cook-
ing with local customers.
About a year ago he moved
to Sebring and recently he's
-opened Philly Grille, formerly
Amera's Cafe.
"I was chief cook in the
Navy and have been in the food
service business 50 years,
catering to health care facilities.
I wasn't ready to retire. I had
the urge to get in business and
stay in town. My wife and I had
moved 20 times in our 34 years
together. This opportunity
came up, and I took it," Delp
said.
His full breakfast menu is
served all day long. There's
eggs with home fries, grits,
corned beef hash, bacon,
sausage, ham or steak; or select


the hot cakes, biscuits and
gravy, oatmeal, or French toast.
He offers all kinds of omelets:
western, cheese, vegetable,
spinach and feta cheese, meat
omelets, or you can even make
up your own. There are fruit
cups for the weight conscious.
"I specialize in Philly cheese
steaks, and hoagies. And this is
. the only place to get the real
thing," Delp said.
For lunch, he offers cold and
hot sandwiches, including corn
beef, pastrami and reuben.
There's a variety of subs, and
his hoagie with roast beef, ham,
turkey, salami, provolone, let-
tuce, tomato and onion is $5.50.
A pickle, chips, and your
choice of potato salad, maca-
roni salad or coleslaw come
with all the sandwiches.
He offers lots of choices for
salads such as chicken Caesar,
Greek, antipasti, tuna, garden


salad, and fruit salad with cot-
tage cheese, to name a few. He
offers homemade soups by the
cup ($1.75) or by the bowl
($2.75.) There also are side
orders of chicken wings with
celery and blue cheese or pota-
to, macaroni salad or coleslaw
to choose from on the menu.
"Our new delivery service is
now available at a 15 percent
charge," Delp said. Or cus-
tomers can call in a take out and
pick it up themselves. "We
have 60 seats here, and in
September I plan on serving
dinners. Then our hours will be
8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m." Delp
said.
Take a break and- try the
Philly Grille at 637 South
Commerce Ave. For details,
call 314-0037. Hours are
presently 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday, and 8
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday.


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - David Poteat,
who has been a gun enthusiast
since he was 12 years old,
opened Southern Guns &
Ammo, a gun shop for home
and personal defense.
Poteat has fired guns ranging
from a .22 to .50 caliber, and is
a personal collector of Smith &
Wesson. His brother is active in
the law enforcement and his
dad retired in law enforcement.
David and his wife, Kathy, have
been residents of Sebring for 10
years, having moved here from
Stone Mountain, Ga.
"I felt this was a good loca-
tion, in a community that's
growing. We're strictly sales,
but will arrange for someone to
receive individualized training
for a concealed permit," Poteat
said. "We carry handguns, rifles
and shotguns, smaller revolvers
and automatics."
Poteat deals directly with 24
manufacturers and 28 supply
houses. Within 24 to 48 hours,
he can obtain any legal firearm
for retail purchase. Smith &
Wesson, Ruger, Browning,
Bushmaster, Glock, Taurus and
other new brands are available.
Poteat . can recommend,
based on the individual, which
particular type of protection
would be best, noting the per-
son's experience and comfort
level, their size, stature, -and
their living arrangement,
whether it is a home or apart-
ment where bullets might pass
through walls, the proper
firearm and ammo, and where
to go to regularly use it.
"Our customers are a mix of
55 percent men and 45 percent
women, which was a surprise.
People want home protection,
and to be able carry it in their
car, or purse if they travel.
Sometimes women work
evenings and want protection
from work to their auto or
home. They generally range in
age from early 20s to mid 60s.
Some of the oldest women look
at smaller caliber shot guns for
protection within their house.
They want to be able to com-
fortably handle it," Poteat said.

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
David Poteat examines some of the guns from his showcases at
Southern Guns & Ammo in Sebring.


"I recommend they start small-
er and feel confident using it.
These customers are your next-
door neighbors. They're church
people, business people. They
want to protect themselves and
their possessions. If they have
trouble late at night and it might
take a while for law enforce-
ment to arrive, they prefer to be
prepared and armed."
All buyers must have a back-
ground investigation, which is
part of the Brady Act. If it's a
long gun or shotgun, Poteat can
call it in while you wait. The
database is checked and if
everything is clean, it can be
taken then.
"But for a handgun, it's a
three-day wait, unless you have
an existing concealed weapon


permit. I don't teach, but I rec-
ommend Jim's Pistolarrow at
12135 U.S. 98 in Sebring. He
has many years experience and
an indoor gun range for people
to become adept," Poteat said.
Jim's Pistolarrow can be
reached at 655-4505.
"We're locally owned and
operated, and as a courtesy to
the sheriff's department and all
local law enforcement officers,
we are able to supply any of
their special firearm and ammo
needs," Poteat said.
Southern Guns and Ammo is
at 1217 U.S. 27 North, at the
Sebring Hills Estates entrance.
Hours are from 9 an. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Friday and 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. For
details, call 385-9906.


TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
That was the way it was at
Dunkin' Donuts, where I tried
to be helpful during a morning
rush.
The morning crew had a bal-
let worked out, no one made; an
unnecessary movement. They
couldn't, because there was a
constant line of customers
coming through the door. Plus
they worked with an alarming
array of machines, some of
which spit out hot liquid.
I did a lot of observing this
past year.
,For example, there was too
much at stake when selling big
ticket items, for me to actually
try and be a salesman. But I
did learn a lot of facts and fig-
ures.
I visited a car dealer, an
appliance store (where I
learned that the telephone can
become part of the human
body), and a Realtor.
Then there were stories that
were difficult in a different


way.
I had to write two delicate
pieces, one describing a visit to
a mortuary (it was for the
Halloween Sunday), the other
telling about servicing portable
toilets at the Sebring Raceway
during race week.
The landfill overwhelmed
me, it is really magnificent -
which is an unexpected word
to use when describing a
dump.
There were the jobs that
involved children, which I
loved. Two of them though,
made me very nervous.
As Santa's elf last
December, I didn't quite know
what to do when a panicked
toddler was so afraid of Santa
he grabbed my leg for dear life
and wouldn't let go.
And caring for the infants
and very young children at Kid
City Day Care had me sweat-
ing bullets - while I held my
nose.
The thought of dropping a
baby, especially while holding
a wiggling one, was enough to
make me a wreck.
The two school visits, to


Lake Placid Elementary and
the Redlands Christian Migrant
Association's Gold Seal day
care center in Lake Placid,
were a breeze, but hard to
write about because I'd felt so
at home.
The best fun was doing
things for the first time.
I've pruned grapevines,
detailed cars, delivered flow-
ers, cut meat, made chocolate
sundaes, and drawn a tattoo on
a living .person (way the weird-
est job).
I've watched a deer head
being mounted, mangled cars
straightened, medicine dis-
persed, and women's fingers
being given an elegant touch.
I've washed women's hair,
(still my favorite assignment,
although bartending was nearly
a tie), and weeded signs as
well as flower beds. I've
skimmed a pool, thrown many
newspapers, and greeted cus-
tomers at Wal-Mart (where no
one would speak to me until
they were assured I had per-
mission).
I never fully understood
hearing aids, and volleyball left

me with a welt on my cheek.
Of course, making fireworks
was the highlight of the year.
In fact, it is hard for me to
believe that a year has already
passed, it went by so fast.
Looking back, there has
been much variety, and the
new year looks just as promis-
ing.
For example, I'll be spend-
ing time with a golf pro some-
time in the near future. Of
course I'll pay for that pleas-
ure. For every golf course
there's bound to be a backed
up septic tank looming. Stay
tuned and thank you for suffer-
ing with me.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Guardian of

the heart
If I could grant myself
one wish, I would spend
more time with my grand-
children.
Since we live hundreds of
miles apart, building rela-
tionships face to face is lim-
ited. I miss cuddling them,
reading stories, playing
games, baking cookies -
making memories.
Retirement is a few years
away, so frequent travel isn't
possible. Consequently, we
bridge the gap by telephone,
mail and occasional visits.
In-a recent phone conver-
sation with Christina,
William and Walter we were
rewarded with songs, gig-
gles and stories of what
they're doing.
Tina sang her ABC song
at regular speed and then
informed us, "I can sing it
faster." She raced through it
and we applauded. William
said, "Hi Gamma and
Gampa" and then giggled.
At almost 3, he clearly is
their strong-willed, risk
taker with a charming per-
sonality and smile that
would threaten to disarm the
strongest disciplinarian.
Since Walter is the oldest,
he has gotten to know us the
best. He remembers visiting
here and going to the beach.
He talked about some of his
memories adding how they
still love using the dump
truck in the gravel on their
driveway.
"Remember when you
gave us that truck for the
beach, Grandma?"
Then he told us all about
his Cub Scout adventures,
referring to his leader .admir-
ingly. I asked him if he
would like to be a leader
some day, too.
"Right now, Grandma,"
he said in his most grown-up
7-year-old voice, "I'm
debating whether to be a
firefighter, police officer or
that other thing you said."
I giggled under my breath
and responded that those
were wonderful positions for
him to consider. Then I.
thought to say, "And you
can be a leader as a fire-
fighter or a police officer,
too."
He liked that and after we
hung up, I got to thinking.
No matter how far or near
we may live to our grand-
children, it is who we are in
their lives that matters. We
can be guardians of their
hearts through our prayers,
excitement over their
achievements, fun times
together; and, our gentle
direction when presented the
opportunity.
Through conversations,
cards, books and videos, we
can provide a legacy of faith
and plant godly leadership
ideas into their minds.
Walter's memories reminded
me that being loved, nur-
tured and believed in isn't
forgotten.
And, most importantly, as
we did with our own chil-
dren,'we can pass along lov-
ing God with all our heart,
soul and strength to our
grandchildren.
"Impress them on your
children. Talk about them
when you sit at home and
when you walk along the
road, when you lie down
and when you get up."
(Deuteronomy 6: 7, NIV)
At this time in history that
may include phone, mail and
vacation visits, too. And, so,
we become guardians of
their precious hearts. Selah.

Grief



Children's Advocacy


Center opens one more


door of compassion


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Good Shepherd Hospice's grief counseling for
children has joined hands with the Children's
Advocacy Center to provide a permanent home
base for this much needed service in this community.
Good Shepherd Hospice had approached Jeff Roth,
director of the. Children's Advocacy Center, to hold the
children's bereavement sessions there after work over
the summer.
While at the Advocacy Center one day, Kevin
Roberts, director of Human Services, met Kathy Wilde,
a licensed mental health counselor and bereavement
counselor for Good Shepherd Hospice. She expressed
the need for a permanent place to come together with
the children for individual and group counseling.
"I was amazed to hear how many kids are receiving
grief counseling," Roberts said. "Kathy Wilde's profes-
sional credentials proved to me that we could provide
quality counseling to the children in need.
"The mission of the Children's Services Council and
the Children's AdVocacy Center is to offer prevention
and early intervention services in our community."
Roberts met with Roth and they agreed this was a
good fit for theAd ocac) Center aid looked into how
they could make it happen.
"This is a joint effort. Many agencies fill the needs
for hurting people," Roth said. "Good Shepherd
Hospice has done a great job in helping children who
have lost a loved one."
, Wilde will continue going to the schools when called
upon. But it's not always the most conducive atmos-
phere to meet with grieving children.
"When a child comes to grief counseling, it is often
just the tip of the iceberg," Wilde said. "So many times
there are other issues going on in a child's life."
That's what makes the Children's Advocacy Center,


1000 S Highlands A'e such
a perfect fit. It house , other
services thai can be accessed
without leaving the building.
"We have a child interview
room, teen interview room,
playroom and therapy room
which houses therapy ,
toys/items. There is' room in
our schedule to partner with this
project and use the same tools to
help hurting, bereaved children,"
Roth said. "It's just a better use of our existing
resources."
For many years, grief counseling services to chil-
dren, teens and their families have been provided
through The Bethany Center in Lakeland which is part
of Good Shepherd Hospice. Wilde has been that pres-
ence of compassionate grief counseling at the schools
in Highlands County for about a year, though other
grief counselors have been available in past years. She
also is available to the Hardee County school system.
"With school in swing again, I'm preparing myself
to be inundated with requests," she said, remembering
the many children she worked with last year.
Becky.,Mclntyre, registered nurse and site director
for Good Shepherd Hospice, notes in a letter to
Roberts, "According to current statistics being com-
piled by the National Alliance for Grieving Children,
approximately 863 children in Highlands County will
experience the death of a parent before the age of 18. In
the last one year period, the Bethany Center provided
services to over 125 grieving children and teens in
Highlands County."

Grief counseling experience
While living in Jacksonville, Wilde got her master's
degree in mental health counseling - interning at

Methodist Hospital as part of Methodist Hospice and
Pathways, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.
Upon graduation, they hired her to work at Pathways as
a'family counselor.
"There are so many grief and loss issues there," she
said. "But, at the same time, I was co-facilitating the
children's grief support group at the hospital."
Two years later, she was hired as the bereavement
counselor at Methodist Hospital, "a perfect fit."
Schools called for her to meet with grieving children.
When she and her husband relocated to the Polk
County area, someone in bereavement management
wanted to talk with Wilde.
"After that meeting, I started part time, commuting
from Winter Haven. But I fell in love with this area and
we moved here a year later."
Wilde's dad died in his early '40s when she was a
young married woman with a new baby. She dealt with
the death differently than her younger sisters and mom.
"I think my own experiences have prepared me for
this work. Through gaining knowledge and understand-
ing about the process of grief, I'm closer to my mom
now because I better understand what she went
through."
Wilde has brought more than 10 years of counseling

Family applauds


Good Shepherd


Hospice for help


By JAN MEROP

ary Jackson suffered
the loss of her hus-
band, Jimmy, in
November 2004 and Good
Shepherd Hospice was there to
help her family deal with their
grief.
The father of five children,
Bithiah, 8, Jimmy, 11, Andrew,
13, Rebba, 15 and Elizabeth
18, he received hospice care
for six to eight weeks before
his death when they discovered
his cancer had returned. He
had a positive experience with
hospice care and appreciated
the nurse who came to care for
him. She would visit a while
and talk, understanding what
he was going through.
Through Kathy Wilde, Good
Shepherd Hospice bereave-
ment counselor, this family has
been learning how to handle
their grief in a healthy manner.
"The children's grief coun-
seling has given the children a
lot of things to do and to make
new friends," Jackson said.
"It's given us all ways to open
up and talk; ideas to think
about and reminisce."
Recently the youngest
daughter, Bithiah, attended a
tea party for girls ages 5-10
given by the Bethany Center,
which she enjoyed very much.
In March, Jackson's children
participated for a weekend in
Camp Brave Heart.
Jackson said her youngest
told her, "It was the best activi-


ties I've ever had."
One of the things that they
did was to write a letter to their
loved one expressing how they
missed him or her and then
burn it in a camp fire. This was
very meaningful for the chil-
dren.
"Though my oldest daughter
and youngest son resisted
going to camp, they are always
talking about it. We will do the
family camp together in the
fall," she said.
In July, Jackson attended a
one day retreat at a very nice
camp in Lake Wales.
"They gave us lunch and
had some activities for us. We
talked about the death of our
loved ones and how we are
coping," she said. "I feel a
good release when I talk to
people who have been through
the same thing and understand.
And, I met two ladies from
Sebring who had recently lost
their husbands."
Jackson is glad to know that
the Children's Advocacy
Center will be the permanent
home for grief counseling for
children. In fact, when the
Advocacy Center first opened,
the tile her daughter, Rebba,
made when she was 6 or 7,
was one of those chosen from
her school to be displayed
there.
She definitely recommends
Good Shepherd Hospice grief
counseling. She knows first-
hand how it has helped her
children and herself.

Perfect marriage is too much to ask for


Question: What advice would

band just won't respond to her
emotionally? That's my situation.
Darrell is a good man, but he's -r
not romantic and would rather

How can I deal with the longing
inside me?
Dr. Dobson: Some men will

their wives. They don't under-
stand how women think and have ON
never been required to "give" to FA
anyone. Those who are married to

how they can forge a meaningful
life together. Or they can seek an early
divorce. I think the former is better!
If Darrell is such a man, my advice is that
you attempt to show him, without nagging
or becoming angry, how you are different
from him and what your unique needs are.
Work to change that which can be
improved in your relationship, explain that
which can be understood, resolve that
which can be settled and negotiate that
which is open to compromise.
Create the best marriage possible from
the raw materials brought by two imperfect
human beings with two distinctly unique
personalities. But for all the rough edges
that can never be smoothed and the faults
that can never be eradicated, try to develop
the best possible outlook and determine to
accept reality exactly as it is. The first prin-


Passenger's quick

Dear Abby: My wife and I would appre-
ciate your help with the following question:
I am driving on the interstate; my wife is
sitting next to me in the front passenger seat
with her seatbelt on. We are doing 70 miles
per hour and there is some traffic around us.
Suddenly I collapse over the steering
wheel. What should my wife do, and in the
proper order? - Edgar in Springfield,
Mo.
Dear Edgar: What a great question. I
checked with the California Highway
Patrol, and here's your answer:
1. Lean the driver back.
2. Take control of the steering wheel.
3. Hit the turn signal.
4. Passenger should keep her seatbelt
fastened so that she is secure in the vehicle
and begin merging to the right, making sure
the drivers' fdot is off the accelerator. ..
5. Bring the vehicle to a stop on the
shoulder.
6. Use a cell phone to call 911 and seek
help for the driver.
I would like to add that while doing all of
the above, it couldn't hurt to start praying.

old daughter and generally being great

ciple of mental health is to
accept that which cannot be
changed. You could easily
descend into depression over the
circumstances in your life. But
you can also choose to hang
tough and be contented in spite
of them. The operative word is
"choose."
Can you accept your husband
as he is? Seldom does one
human being satisfy every long-
ing and hope in the breast of
another. Obviously, this coin has
two sides: You can't be his per-
fect woman, either. He is no
more equipped to resolve your
entire package of emotional
needs than you are to become his


sexual dream machine every 24 hours. Both
partners have to settle for human foibles,
faults, irritability, fatigue and occasional
nighttime "headaches." A good marriage is
not one where perfection reigns: It is a rela-
tionship where a healthy perspective over-
looks a multitude of "unresolvables."
I don't mean to imply that the advice I've
given is easy to implement or that it will
take away the longing you described, but
every human being eventually encounters
difficult situations that are beyond his or
her control. At that point, a person is tempt-
ed to collapse, to run, to become angry, or
do all three. I submit that-acceptance is a
better alternative.
Question: My former girlfriend and I
were absolutely certain we were in love
because we were crazy about each other


from the moment we met. We were togeth-
er every day, and all our friends thought we
would get married. But the relationship
cooled off very quickly, and now we can
hardly stand each other. I don't even like to
be around her. What do you think happened
to us?
Dr. Dobson: Not knowing either of you,
it is difficult to say for sure. But I can tell
you that the way your relationship began
had something to do with the way it ended.
A love affair is usually doomed when it
begins with great intensity. It almost always
burns itself out in time. You may recall an
old song that described a love affair that
was "too hot not to cool down." That's the
way it often works.
In a manner of speaking, you and your
girlfriend ran your race together as though
it were a 100-yard dash. It should have been
approached like a marathon. That's why
you exhausted yourselves before your jour-
ney together ever got started. If a love rela-
tionship is to go the distance, there needs to
be a comfortable pacing that keeps the two
parties from consuming each other. That
will give the bond a chance to form - and
allow "the'glue to dry."

I say it's insensitive - even .- ,

Dear Questioning: You are. While I
agree with your wife that it's the thought

diet sabotage.
A more suitable gift might be a book, CD
or a lovely plant. 'But if she's determined
that it be something from her kitchen, she
should pick up one of the American
Diabetes Association cookbooks and use it
to prepare something that her neighbors can
both enjoy. (And because diabetes can run
in families, that would include the grand-
kids, too.)

ARTS & LEISURE



Resources answer questions about snakes and lizards


If you live in Florida, you
will sooner or later (most likely
sooner) meet up with one or
more snakes. Your library has
several books on snakes that
will be of real help as you try to
decide whether to run from or
ignore the snake in your yard.
One online test that I found
to be really valuable can be
found at
h tip://www. stetson.edu/-pmay/
quiz. It's called "The Florida
Snake Quiz" and has a series of
snake pictures with a question
about each page, such as
"Which snake is poisonous?",
"Which one of these climbs
trees frequently?", "Which
snake eats other snakes?",
"Which one of these is not pri-
marily aquatic?", or, an eye-
opener for me, the page which
asked "Which of these isn't a


snake?" When you
click on a particular
picture, information -
about that snake is
given along with an
answer to the ques-
tion posed at the top
of that page.
During our before-
work walk we had
come upon a pencil |IBRAR
thin snake-like critter
on the sidewalk that Carol H
had yellow vertical _
zigzags of color on
the head area. The
rest of the "snake" was pretty
much muddy grey-black and it
wasn't in a hurry to move off
the sidewalk. Going to the
Stetson Florida Snake Quiz site
helped me to identify it as "an
eastern glass lizard, Ophisaurus
ventralis. It is a legless lizard,


RY

re


and has eyelids and
.i ^ an external ear open-
ing, unlike snakes."
" 1, So, we saw a harm-
* . less lizard that only
looked like a snake.
Would you have
known. what it was?
We can't go any-
- where without seeing
LINES dozens of so-called
lizards ranging from
sselink very tiny to more than
five inches in length.
What are they? What
should I do if one gets
in my house (again)?
Identification of what is living
in and around your yard is criti-
cal to knowing how to deal with
our wild life. Let me suggest a
browse through the colored pic-
tures of the southern critters
book "Lizards, Turtles and


Crocodilians, Part Two, of the
Handbook of Reptiles and
Amphibians of Florida" by Ray
and Patricia Ashton Jr. Instead
of calling those dozens of dart-
ing critters, lizards, I now know
they are either the brown
Aanole or the Florida bark
anole. What's the difference?
According to our book
"Lizards, Turtles and
Crocodilians" the Florida bark
anole rarely ventures onto the
ground, but spends its time on
the sides of trees, eating small
insects, and reaches a maximum
length of five inches.
The brown anole is a
Caribbean island native, intro-
duced accidentally into Florida.
The juveniles often have a light
streak down their backs, the
females have less of a streak


and more a mottled back, while
the males are plainer light
brown but exhibit that beautiful
orange-red dewlap which is
used to entice females (and per-
haps to intimidate other males).
All are slender, with a pointed
snout, and can be found scurry-
ing about on the ground and in
bushes. According to the
authors, this anole "appears to
be spreading rapidly throughout
south Florida and has been
observed as far north as
Gainesville".
If your particular anole
changes from green to brown,
you may have a green anole,
which can grow some eight
inches long, and is a "bobber"
extending its red dewlap to
warn males and attract females.
Your libraries are the meeting


place for males and females of
all ages. Come stay cool with
us, find study material, grab a
thriller, browse the DVDs, and
discover dragons, dreams and
daring deeds, all available and
ready to go home with you.
You'll check out even faster
with Sebring's new SeePoint
self-check out machines.
They'll even print out a receipt
for you, so come try them out
and help us end waiting-in-line.

Crisis Intervention
Counseling
It's Wilde's desire to offer
early intervention and crisis
intervention counseling to chil-
dren and their families - includ-
ing traumas that affect school
children. For example, they will
be available to help children
cope with the absence of a
loved one due to military serv-
ice; such as the recent deploy-
ment of the National Guard.
Since Sept. 11, 2001', Good
Shepherd Hospice has come
along side children to assist
them in sorting through the
emotions of the this nation's
loss. In fact, a Good Shepherd
Hospice volunteer and Sebring
winter resident lost a daughter
when the first tower was struck.

because of its name -
maybe it was name
for me) and the
Dorsett Golden as a
pollinator. I am
attempting to grow
both varieties in my
garden.
Anna and Ein
Shemer were
obtained from Israel
in 1967. These vari-
eties fruit and leaf well
in Central Florida.
Fruit ripens in late
June to early July, and
the sizes ranges from 2
to 2 1/2 inches in


diameter for the Anna. Anna has
a shape similar to the Red
Delicious but with an approxi-
mately 30-40 percent blush.
Flavor is good and is sweet to
semiacid.
Dorsett Golden was intro-


dren's grief support groups.

Deeply satisfying work
Working with children indi-
vidually and in support groups
is fulfilling to Wilde.
"Oak little girl I remember
was the saddest situation I have
ever seen."
She recalled how the child
had survived a tragic car acci-
dent, but witnessed her dad
trapped and then dying.
When Wilde met her, she was
drawn into herself and it was
mirrored in her face.
"But within three months,"
Wilde said,, "her countenance
was transformed."
The sooner Wilde interacts
with children to help them face
the crisis and deal with it, the
better their recovery. She
attempts to meet them at their
need and validate their faith
according to where they are,
coming from.
Boys generally act out grief
with anger. But, Wilde said that
in today's culture, anger is also


duce from Nassau, Bahamas.
Fruit is yellow with 10 percent
slightly pink blush and is 2-2
1/4 inches in size. Flavor is
sweet and flesh is firm. Fruit
have been stored satisfactorily
for two weeks under refrigera-
tion. Fruit shape is similar to
Golden Delicious and ripen in
late June.

Site requirements
Apple trees perform best in
locations that receive full sun.
Areas that receive shade more
than 50 percent of the day
should be avoided.
Locations and cultural prac-
tices that foster air movement
should be encouraged to mini-
mized disease problems associ-
ated with high humidity. Early
morning sun is more important
than early evening sun due to
negative impact of morning

showing up in girls.
" With adults, the need for
counseling diminishes after a
year to a year-and-a-half. But, it
is different with children. -
"Children's needs change
with their ages. If I meet with a
child of 6, by the time that is
child is 11, his or her grief will
manifest itself differently. At
17; he will usually have a
healthy outlook. But, if he's not
helped early, he will still be
dealing with unresolved grief
issues later in life," Wilde said.
Depth of grief can be
dependent on the level of
attachment to the deceased.
"For example, if a grandpar-
ent who lives far away dies and
has been seen only once a year,
the attachment is less. However,
if a grandparent has had a hand
in raising them - and we see
more of this happening - then it
is like losing a parent."
Consequently, grief counsel-
ing for children is ongoing.
With the parents, or guardians,

dew on leaves and fruit.
Apple trees grow well in
most soils in north and north
central Florida provided that
they are well drained. Soils pH
of 6 to 6.5 are best, but if your
soil has a ph less than 5.0 then
add 4-6 pounds of lime per 100
squre feet prior to planting.
In poorly drained soil or soils
that are located in low lying
areas, apple trees will succumb
to anaerobiosis or phythophora
root rot. In extremely sandy
soils, tree will have to supplied
with irrigation more frequently,
especially during dry spring
growth period.
Besides sun and drainage,
pick a location that avoids cold
pockets. These cold spots usual-
ly occur on the lower section of
your yard.
Cold air, being heavier than
warm, tends to drain downslope


and counseling has begun -
Wilde takes the initiative to
keep in touch with the children
throughout their school years.
They do well in support groups
with other children of their own
age group - knowing they
aren't alone in the grieving
process.
"Children are incredibly
resilient and have a wide range
of emotions. They can be crying
one moment and playing the
next. They go back and forth
with their grief," Wilde said.
Of course, they do even bet-
ter when they -have a strong
support system through their
family and friends along with,
grief counseling.
Good Shepherd Hospice and
Wilde are committed to provid-
ing the best counseling in the
most favorable and supportive
atmosphere. They're excited
about their new home, thanks to
the Children's Advocacy Center
of Highlands. Wilde can be

to low spots, such as along
washes. Here it settles and can
easily freeze the flower bulbs
and blossoms of fruit trees.
Cold air flowing down slope
can also settle in areas where it
meets and obstruction, such as
the house or a free-standing
wall. Don't plant in these cold
pockets. '
Next week I will continue
with pollination.

Current events in the Highlands Soil




and Water Conservation District


A lot of things are
going on in our office
now, many of which
might be of interest to
you. For information
about any of these
activities, call 402-
6545.
A grant through the -..
Florida Department
of Agriculture and NEW'
Consumer Services is I
being administered
through the WATI
Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation Jennij
District to help pro- -
ducers on the Lake
Wales Ridge to reduce the
amount of nitrates leaching into
the groundwater of the sandy
soils on the Ridge. Best
Management Practices requires
specific rates of fertilizer appli-
cation according to citrus tree
size. Currently, growers on the
Ridge do not have the applica-


tion technology
available to apply
different rates of fer-
tilizer to a mature
'- , tree on one side,
while applying a
much smaller rate to
a young tree on the
-_ other side of the
spreader simultane-
S FROM ously. Therefore, it is
HE difficult, if not
impossible, to com-
ERSHED ply with BMPs with-
out new technology.
fer Donze The purpose of
-- this grant is to
encourage growers
on the Ridge to consider
upgrading their existing fertiliz-
er, application equipment with
Variable Rate Technology. The
cost share percentage paid by
the program will be 601 percent
of the cost associated with
retrofitting an older model fer-
tilizer spreader with the appro-


private mechanics and computer-
eye technology, or that similar
portion of a new spreader that
makes it a precision application
piece of equipment. There is a
maximum cost share dollar cap
of $10,200 per spreader.
Call our office for informa-
tion or to apply for the grant.
The Florida Master
Naturalist Program is available
through our office. This pro-
gram was developed by the
University of Florida to pro-
mote increased awareness and
appreciation of Florida's unique
environmental resources.
Anyone who is interested in
learning more about Florida's
environment can participate.
Teachers seeking continuing
education units should consider
this course. Call us for more
information and to be put on the
waiting list. The dates and times
for the course will be deter-
mined based on interest.


The Highlands County Lake
Management Program has a
number of ongoing projects to
address a wide variety of water
quality concerns in numerous
lakes throughout the county.
Many of these projects are
cooperatively funded by the
county and the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, the City of Sebring has
also contributed funding for
Little Lake Jackson.
Little Lake Jackson water
alum injection project is mov-
ing ahead into Phase 2. Alum,
or aluminum sulfate, binds with
phosphorus to form a 'floc' that
will settle to the bottom of the
lake. This bound phosphorus
will no longer be available for
plant growth, which should
decrease the amount of algae
and increase water clarity. The
ground breaking of this' project
was Aug. 4.
Our office has several volun-


teer opportunities available.
Do you have a boat? Here's
another excuse to get out on one
of Highlands County's beautiful
lakes! Join the Florida LAKE-
WATCH program. The LAKE-
WATCH program at the
University of Florida's is look-
ing for volunteers to collect
monthly water samples on lakes
throughout Florida. Call our
office at 402-6545 or visit our
w e b s i t e
www.highlandsswcd.org for a
list of lakes in need of volun-
teers.
If you've ever walked around
Lake Jackson you might have
noticed special plaques on the
storm drains. The blue plaques
say "Dump No Waste Save Our
Waters" and were placed last
year by volunteers. We now
. have more plaques that need to
be placed! Storm water is NOT
treated, contrary to popular


belief, and it is sent directly into
lakes. If you have a group that
is interested in volunteering to
help protect our lakes this may
be the perfect opportunity! We
also provide orange safety vests
and will direct and provide help
for your group.
Our Monofilament Recovery
and Recycling Project is highly
successful. We collect lots of
fishing line from outdoor bins
placed at boat ramps throughout
the county. Currently we have
16 bins in place. We need vol-
unteers to help us collect fish-
ing line from these outdoor
bins. The collected fishing line
can be dropped off at the Ag-
Civic Center. Call our office if
you are interested.

resources specialist with the

Martha Stewart, living: Back on TV, both in the daytime and at night


By FRAZIER MOORE
AP Television Writer
NEW YORK - "This one,"
says Martha Stewart, "this is the
one I want."
Stewart, who makes an art of
knowing what she wants, has
chosen the best coconut from a
platter holding several. A good
coconut is "heavy for its size,"
she explains, and as she hefts
this one for a demonstrative
shake, it responds with a robust,
sloshy sound.
On her show in a few min-
utes, Stewart and a guest will
explore the joys of coconuts,
including the knack of cracking
them. She has even brought to
the studio her own machete, an
impressive utensil she got
awhile back in a little village in
Brazil.
"I love to open coconuts with
it," she says.
Here on the set of her syndi-
cated daily hour last week,
Stewart is about to tape one of
several practice shows.
But soon she will be on the
air for real. Monday, "Martha"
premieres in just about every
market in the nation (check
local listings). It's a lifestyles
show over which she will pre-
side in front of a studio audi-
ence, complete with cooking,
entertaining, decorating and
home renovation how-tos,
along with celebrity guests.


Marcia Cross, who as Bree
Van De Kamp on "Desperate
Housewives" plays a domestic
diva bent on beating Martha
Stewart at her own game, will
be Stewart's first guest.
("Martha" will re-air daily at 6
p.m. EDT on cable's TLC.)
Then, little more than a week
after that, she hits prime time
with "The Apprentice: Martha
Stewart." Premiering Sept. 21
on NBC, that series will air 8
p.m. Wednesday.
So she is back with a splash.
Having just shed the electronic
shackle from her ankle, and
with nearly six months of house
arrest behind her, Stewart, 64, is
eager to move beyond the scan-
dal that began almost three
years ago and led to her convic-
tion, and five-month jail term in
West Virginia, for lying to
authorities about a stock sale.
But this isn't just a come-
back. Collectively, her two TV
series aim to introduce her as a
new Martha, a better-than-ever
Martha, a playful Martha in
marked contrast to the chilly,
uptight perfectionist she was
seen as before, even by some of
her biggest fans.
"What's Martha really like?"
is a question both shows will
address, Mark Burnett told
scores of reporters at a Mnedia
event right in this studio a cou-
ple of weeks earlier. Hint:


"She's funny, warm, engaging,
intelligent and very, very
witty," he declared.
Burnett is the creator of
"Survivor" and the -Donald
Trump-starring "Apprentice,"
and serves as an executive pro-
ducer of both Stewart's series.
"I think the biggest gift that
Mark Burnett has given to this
company - and to Martha, too
- is making her comfortable
with showing all sides of her
persona," says Susan Lyne, who
last November joined Martha
Stewart Living Omnimedia as
president.
Building her company from
scratch, Stewart had long felt a
need "to be perfect on some
level as a role model for all
these hundreds of people she
was bringing along," Lyne theo-
rizes. But with hard-won per-
spective from her months spent
away, "she recognized that
there was a big team of people
here who had learned from her,
who were very, very good at
their jobs - and would allow
her now to be a freer person on
television."
Giving a reporter a guided
tour through the bustling studio,
Stewart, clad smart in jeans and
mango-orange sweater, seems
downright lighthearted. She
proudly points out features of
the set: the cappuccino
machine, the washer-and-drier


tucked under a counter, the
drawers with contents arranged
in tidy order.
"This is very similar to my
kitchen in Westport, Conn.,"
she says. "We modeled it on
that. The greenhouse is built
sort of following the design of
the greenhouse I have in
Bedford (N.Y.)."
In the gardening area, ani-
mals brought in by pet expert
Marc Morrone are ready for
their close-up. Stewart greets
each by name. She pats Harvey,
a huge bunny. She whistles,
then coos baby-talk to Harry, a
scarlet macaw: "Helloooo? You
gonna talk to me? Gorgeous
boy!"
Her schedule calls for spend-
ing three days per week on
"Martha": three live broadcasts
with the other two hours taped.
But "The Apprentice" has
mostly wrapped.
On it, Stewart pits 10 women
and six men against one another
on tasks pegged to her areas of
interest - publishing, apparel,
entertainment and merchandis-
ing. A job at Martha Stewart
Living Omnimedia awaits the
contestant who prevails.
Daughter Alexis Stewart and
Charles Koppelman, the com-
pany's chairman, serve as her
lieutenants.
The finale will be aired live.
"I have NO idea who the win-


ner is," laughs Stewart.
"The Apprentice" is meant to
let viewers see that, "in addition
to being a how-to teacher, I am
also a good boss-manager," she
says. "I want them to see that
part of our world - especially
now, because it is very impor-
tant to revitalize this fantastic
company, to get people back on-
track about what we are and
what we do here.
"Without that, they watch
fake shows, like on CBS com-
ing up with Cybill Shepherd -
which isn't me at all, not the
real me." (She hasn't seen this
TV film, and doesn't plan to,
but she could be right. "Martha:
Behind Bars," which airs Sept.
25, is a sympathetic telling of
Stewart's legal woes, but
Shepherd portrays Stewart as
humorless and starchy.)
During the seven weeks this
summer that Stewart worked on
"The Apprentice," she also
wrote a book, set for publica-
tion in October.
"It's called 'The Martha
Rules,' and I'm almost finished
with it. Oh, my gosh! I was up
at 4 this morning, editing
Chapter 7!
"I really do have rules for
running and managing a busi-
ness that have never been for-
malized before," says Stewart.
"To put them all down was a
very good exercise for me.


Thank goodness for home con-
finement," she quips, then
swiftly backs off the joke.
Especially with 18 months' pro-
bation ahead of her, she has no
interest in appearing to make
light - too light, anyway - of
her past ordeal.
Besides, her focus is on the
future. Until her scrape with the
law, "we were going a thousand
miles a minute with the compa-
ny. Then for me to come to a
kind of a screeching halt and
have five months to really think
- well, I now know why pro-
'fessors ask for and take sabbat-
icals. It really does give them
the time to think about their
subject matter and what, they
want to do. I didn't think about
the past. I really used the time
to think about where we wanted
to go and how should our ener-
gy be directed."
With "The Apprentice" large-
ly wrapped, now her energy is
heavily directed toward
"Martha," just days away.
It's the sort of high-stakes,
* high-profile venture that could
give a person butterflies. But
Stewart chuckles at the very
idea.
"I think I'm too busy for but-
terflies," she says. "I'm not
nervous about this 'show. I'm
having such a nice time."

FEMA director relieved of hurricane responsibilities


By LARA JAKES JORDAN
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Federal
Emergency Management
Agency Director Michael
Brown, the principal target of
harsh criticism of the Bush
administration's response to
Hurricane Katrina, was relieved
of his onsite command Friday.
He will be replaced by Coast
Guard Vice Adm. Thad W.
Allen, who was overseeing
New Orleans relief, recovery
and rescue efforts, Homeland
Security Secretary Michael
Chertoff announced.
Earlier, Brown confirmed the
switch. Asked if he was being
made a scapegoat for a federal
relief effort that has drawn
widespread and sharp criticism,
Brown told The Associated
Press after a long pause: "By
the press, yes. By the president,
no."
"Michael Brown has done
everything he possibly could to
coordinate the federal response
to this unprecedented chal-
lenge," Chertoff told reporters
in Baton Rouge, La. Chertoff
sidestepped a question on
whether the move was the first
step toward Brown's leaving
FEMA.


Sept. 11

rescuers

honored at

White House
By DEVLIN BARRETT
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON -
President Bush honored 442
firefighters, police officers, and
rescuers who died Sept. 11,
Awarding posthumous Medals
of Valor to their families at a
White House ceremony Friday.
"A proud America will
always stand in the shadow of
their service and sacrifice,"
Bush told a crowd of some
1,200 friends and family, who
wore cards with the names of
their lost loved ones.
In the crowd, Dena Smagala
smiled and videotaped the pres-
ident's speech as her three-
year-old daughter Alexa, wear-
ing red, white and blue ribbons
in her hair, played barefoot in
the grass of the south lawn of
the White House.
Smagala was five months
pregnant with Alexa when her
husband Stanley Smagala, a
firefighter in Brooklyn, died
responding to the World Trade
Center.
"This means everything -
everything that my husband
stood for and worked for, and it
will mean more to my daughter
when she's old enough to
understand, because she never
knew him."
The 9/11 Heroes Medal of
Valor were created by
Congress. Those in attendance
Friday included Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist, Sen.
Charles Schumer of New York,
and New York congressmen
Peter King, Vito Fossella, and
Joseph Crowley.
Crowley had pushed hard for
the Sept. 11 medals, citing the
loss of his firefighter cousin
John Moran.
For the Sept. 11 families, the
ceremony was an emotional
and inspiring reminder of their
loved ones' final moments
helping others.
Arlene Howard, mother of
Port Authority police officer
George Howard, said she was
"very honored, because my son
saved a lot of lives, and he was-
n't even working that day. He
was off, and he rushed in from
home to help."
When hijacked- planes struck
the World Trade Center, men
and women with badges of all
types responded immediately.
The Sept.. 11 attacks killed
343 members of the Fire
Department of New York City,
50 Port Authority police offi-
cers and assistants, 23 New


York Police Department offi-
cers, three state court officers,
and members of the Secret
Service, the FBI, and private
ambulance workers.


'This story's not about me. This story's about the worst disaster of the history
of our country that stretched every government to its limit and now we have to
help these victims.'
ROBERT BROWN, FEMA director


But a source close to Brown,
speaking, on condition of
anonymity, said the FEMA
director had been considering
leaving after the hurricane sea-
son ended in November and
that Friday's action virtually
assures his departure.
Brown has been under fire
and facing calls for his resigna-
tion because of the administra-
tion's slow response to the mag-
nitude of the hurricane. On
Thursday, questions were raised
about whether he padded his
resume to exaggerate his previ-
ous emergency management
background.
Less than an hour before
Brown's removal came to light,
White House press secretary
Scott McClellan said Brown
had not resigned and the presi-
dent had not asked for his resig-
nation.
Democratic lawmakers
weren't satisfied with the move;
they immediately demanded
Brown's ouster from FEMA.
"The events of the last ten
days have shown that Mr.


Brown has repeatedly exercised
poor judgment and has failed in
his basic responsibilities," said
a letter to Bush from Senate
Democratic Leader Harry Reid
and Sens. Dick Durbin, Debbie
Stabenow and Charles E.
Schumer. "His continued pres-
ence in this critical position
endangers the success of the
ongoing recovery efforts. ... It is
not enough to remove Mr.
Brown from the disaster scene."
Republican Sen. Trent Lott,
whose Pascagoula, Miss., home
was destroyed in the storm, said
he, too, had concluded that
FEMA "was overwhelmed,
undermanned and 'not capable
of doing its job" under Brown's
leadership.
"Michael Brown has been
acting like a private, instead of
a general," Lott said.
Chertoff suggested the shift
came as the Gulf Coast efforts
were entering "a new phase of
the recovery operation." He
said Brown would return to
.Washington to oversee the gov-
ernment's response to other


potential disasters.
"I appreciate his work, as
does everybody here," Chertoff
said.
In a telephone interview with
AP, Brown said he. was "anx-
ious to get back to D.C. to cor-
rect all the inaccuracies and lies
that are being said." Asked if
the move was a demotion,
Brown said: "No. No. I'm still
the director of FEMA."
He said Chertoff made the
decision to move him out of
Louisiana. It was not his own
decision, Brown said.
"I'm going to go home and
walk my dog and hug my wife,
and maybe get a good Mexican
meal and a stiff margarita and a
full night's sleep. And then I'm
going to go right back to FEMA
and continue to do all I can to
help these victims," Brown
said. "This story's not about
me. This story's about the worst
disaster of the history of our
country that stretched every
government to its limit and now
we have to help these victims."
The White House had insist-
ed publicly for days that Bush


retained 'confidence in his
FEMA chief. Last Friday, Bush
praised Brown during a tour of
Alabama, telling him,
"Brownie, you're doing a heck
of a job."
But there was no question
that Brown's star was fading in
the administration. In the
storm's early days, Brown was
the president's primary briefer
on its path and the response
effort, but by the weekend those
duties had been taken over by
Chertoff.
Even before Chertoff's
announcement, the beleaguered
Brown was facing questions
Friday about his resume.
Bush administration docu-
ments have credited Brown
with overseeing emergency
services while working for the
city of Edmond, Okla., in the
mid-1970s. Brown's official
biography on the FEMA Web
site says he served as "an assis-
tant city manager." But a former
mayor of Edmond, Randel
Shadid, told AP on Friday that
Brown had been an assistant to

tant city manager.
"I think there's a difference
between the two positions,"
said Shadid. "I would think that
is a discrepancy."
Asked later about the White
House news release that said
Brown oversaw Edmond's
emergency services divisions,
.Shadid said, "I don't think
that's a total stretch."
A longtime acquaintance,
Carl Reherman, said Brown
was very involved in helping
set up Edmond's emergency
operations center and assisting
in the creation of an emergency
contingency plan in the 1970s.
At the time, Reherman was a
city councilman, and he later
became mayor.
FEMA deputy strategic
director Nicol Andrews said a
report in Time magazine, which
first detailed the discrepancies,
was "very inaccurate."
Similarly, a January 2003
White House announcement of
Brown's nomination to head
FEMA lists his,previous experi-
ence as "the Executive Director
of the Independent Electrical
Contractors," a trade group
based in Alexandria, Va. Two
officials of the group told
Newsday this week that Brown
never was the national head of
the group but did serve as the
executive director of a regional
chapter in Colorado.

With the nation riveted on Hurricane Katrina last
week, a discovery involving DNA of humans and chim-
panzees likely didn't get the attention worthy a signifi-
cant scientific development with huge potential for
mankind.
Scientists have deciphered the DNA of chimps, the
closest relative of human beings, and are now able to
make comprehensive comparisons with human blue-
print.
This holds great promise for practical application in
medicine since chimps have demonstrated a resistance to
such human diseases as AIDS, hepatitis, malaria and
Alzheimer's.
Beyond that, the findings of $25 million study funded
by the National Human Genome Research Institute are
particularly exciting to scientists by perhaps someday
offering clues as to what makes humans, well, human ...
By studying these changes - and scientists have
already identified 250,000 believed to be most responsi-
ble for differences between chimps and humans - it
may be possible to also pinpoint reasons for diseases.
Much work remains to be done, but cracking the chim-
panzee's DNA, code - done through the blood of a
chimp named "Clint" at an Atlanta research center -
provides the necessary roadmap ...

An editorial excerpt from The Patriot-News, Harrisburg,
Pa.

Remember when Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan warned Wall Street against "irrational exu-
berance"? That was nine years ago, when the tech stock
boom was driving up stock prices seemingly by the
minute. And few investors paid much attention to Mr.
Greenspan then, especially the young millionaires who
had become rich overnight by proposing yet another use
of the Internet without providing even a smidgen of evi-
dence that the venture would turn a profit.
Fast forward. It took about four years, but time proved
Mr. Greenspan right. The tech stock bubble burst and
millions of Americans found their paper wealth had
greatly diminished, or in many cases, disappeared. Now
comes Mr. Greenspan with another warning that ought to
be heeded - an alarm about the overheated housing
market. It's a warning that homeowners; -prospective
buyers, and state banking regulators can't afford to"
ignore ...
And that day may be coming soon. Given the steady
rise in fuel prices, the Fed will likely try to keep inflation
in check by raising interest rates yet again. The higher
they go, the less liquidity homeowners will have. The
days of froth and speculation will be over.

An editorial excerpt from the Times Union, Albany, N.Yg

It will be interesting to see how the American driving
public responds to the message sent out by President
Bush last Thursday:
"Americans should be prudent in their use of energy
over the course of the next few weeks," he said. "Don't
buy gas if you don't need it." ...
The current situation is a reminder of just how depend-
ent this nation is on oil and gas. It fuels our economy as
well as our lifestyle. Being without it is more than an
inconvenience; it's a matter of national security.
Katrina also reminds us that, at some point, high
prices, short supplies and long lines may not be a tempo-
rary circumstance. It may be our future, and it's not a
future that the United States has planned for very well ....
What are the alternatives? Wind energy? Nuclear
power? Ethanol? What is the next generation of fuels to
feed our, economic engine and our desire for mobility?
Will they be ready for action when we need them?
Researchers have been asking these questions for
some time, but the need for answers and for a national
energy strategy seems to be drawing more urgent.
Americans can be "prudent" in their use of gasoline, but
the day when we can say we don't "need" it still seems
far away. .

An editorial excerpt from The Lawrence (Kan.) Journal-
World.

... It's easy to exaggerate the importance of any chief
justice, whose power over the other justices is very mod-
est.
Many, in fact, referred to this Supreme Court as the
O'Connor court, not. the Rehnquist court, because newly
retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor so often supplied
the swing vote on key decisions for a range of issues,
including abortion, affirmative action and religion.
Nevertheless, Rehnquist and O'Connor, fellow
Arizonans who were classmates at Stanford Law School,
voted together far more often than not.
Rehnquist rarely showed fervor to advance a broad,
coherent vision of the Constitution-unlike fellow con-
servatives Antonin Scalia and Clarenrce Thomas. Still,
although he will never be remembered for ringing elo-
quence on behalf of grand principles, Rehnquist helped
to steer the court in a direction more congenial to con-
servatives. Many of his ideas, once thought eccentric,
have been enshrined in major decisions by the court....
The Supreme Court's place at the center of many bit-
ter disputes made it a controversial institution in 1972,
when Rehnquist took his seat, and it remains so today.


That's one fact of life beyond the control of the late chief
justice - or of his successor.

What to do when you don't want to rant


I really thought
about writing a col- LAURA'
umn ranting about
some of the outra- Laura
geous stuff that has
been said since
Katrina hit. And no, I'm not
talking about the language of
some people when they see how
high the gas price is on a given
day.
Nor am I simply talking
about those who have taken the
opportunity of this disaster to
once again criticize President
Bush for things he couldn't
control. He is, after all, merely
the President of the United
States, not God. Yes, they have
said some things that raise my
blood pressure, but they aren't
the only ones.
Fof example, any rant about
outrageous things said would
have to include the author of a
particularly vile message that
said in essence that God had
destroyed New Orleans because
of it's immorality and that all of
the dead were Democrats. I'm
not saying God can't use natural
events - any casual reading of
the Bible will show He can -


Future problem

for Sparta?

Editor:
Is Sparta Road a future prob-
lem?
I would like to take this
opportunity to expand on the
article published in the News-
Sun, Aug. 28, titled "Sparta
Road becoming a traffic con-
cern" by Phil Attinger.
First of all, the citizens who
spoke at the commission meet-.
ing had a lot to gain if they
could convince the county
commission that Sparta Road
was no problem. So I think it is
wise to take their statements
with a grain of salt.
For instance, Mr. Waldon -
(as the article states) who owns
14 acres along Sparta RAd and
is trying to get it rezoned so he
can build on it - said he drives
Sparta Road every morning and
has no problems. He travels
south from U.S. 27 to Cracker
Trail Elementary. Then south to
State Road 66, east to U.S. 27,
then back to Sebring. With a
present total of 5,900 trips per
day on Sparta, that could be
accomplished without too
much problem.
Number one: He traveled the
road in the best direction miss-
ing the most congested areas.
Number two: The problem is
not what you can do today, but
what you will be able to do
tomorrow.
The county's potential traffic
impact study for Sparta Road is
as follows:
Developments - Boma/
Dwelling Unit - 350/Trip
Generation - 3,350.
Development - Wolf Creek
Ranch/Dwelling Unit -
350/Trip Generation, 3,350.
Development - Highlands
Lake Reserve/Dwelling Unit -
200/Trip Generation - 1,914.
Development - .Viscaya
Lakes (Dwelling Unit -
1,200/Trip Generation, 7,032).
Total for city developments
(Dwelling Units - 2,100 and
Trip Generation - 15,435).
County potential develop-
ment area 1,492 acres at 2du/ac
(Dwelling Units - 2,984/Trip
Generation - 22,380).
Existing trips on Sparta
today - (Dwelling Units -
..../Trip Generation - 5,900).
Total (Dwelling Unit -
5,084/Trip Generation -
43,715). *
Now, let's talk about that trip
to Cracker Trail school. Better
than that, try it the other way,
north form S.R. 66 to U.S. 27
or try and get out of Bassage
Road "at the blind curve" onto
Sparta and travel north. And I
shudder at the thought of trying
to get 43,715 cars and trucks

suasion of the dead? Has he

But I really don't want to talk
about these people. Writing
about them will just make me
angry and start questioning if
the people involved in spitting
the stuff out of not being human
beings and I will probably not
feel any better for it.
Instead, let's look at some of
the positive stories coming out
of New Orleans and other areas.
The stories are out there, if you
are patient and determined.
Stories like the one about the
work being done by the
Louisiana SPCA, whose shelter
workers have gone into flooded
neighborhoods to rescue pets
that had to be left behind when
their owner's fled. This is dirty
and risky work, but if I had
been in New Orleans and had
been forced to leave Perky


but I am leery of
accusing
Him of such stuff
without His telling me
explicitly that He did.
And how did this


ing tents, first aid kits, and baby
formula (the last was a brilliant
thought in my opinion).
Mexico is sending more
MRE's, bedding, baby care
items, and personal hygiene
kits, Germany, another country
who has had some issues with
us, is sending even more
MRE's and high speed pumps.
This list is very incomplete.
A full list can be found at
http://www.cnn.com/2OO5/US/O
9/06/international. aid/index.ht
ml/.
There is something very pos-
itive about this list. Not all these
countries have warm fuzzy feel-
ings about us. Yet, just as we
have helped others when they
have had problems, they are
stepping up to the plate and
reaching out to us.
It's things like this that give
me hope that we are not quite as
far gone as I fear.

around the "S" curves just
north of Cracker Trail School
each day.
Some, but not all, of the con-
cerns for the future improve-
ments to Sparta Road were
addressed in the development
agreements between the county
and the developers in year
2000. And some of those
requirements were carried over
into the city of Sebring's devel-
opment agreements with
Viscaya Lakes and Highlands
Lakes Reserve (aka Wolf
Creek).
Each agreed to pay $1,060
per dwelling unit for road
improvements. Viscaya Lakes
has paid $35,000 in advance
and will not have to make pay-
ments on the first 35 dwelling
units they build. The develop-
ment agreement and Highlands
Lakes Reserve fails to mention
the $35,000, so I am assuming
that they have not made any
advanced payment. Each has
dedicated a 17-foot easement
along Sparta and will build a 4-
foot bike path along Sparta and
a 25-foot easement along State
Road 66, all for future road
expansion.
The city failed to negotiate
any land dedication or payment
for road improvement, of
Bassage or Sparta Road, in the
development agreement with
Wolf Creek Ranch. And flatly
refused to make any addition to
the boma development agree-
ment, providing for the $1,060
per dwelling unit, dedication of
a 17-foot easement along
Sparta with a 4-foot bike path
or dedication of a 17-foot ease-
ment along Bassage Road.
They said the roads belonged to


the county and it was the coun-
ty's problem and I should
address my concerns to the
county.
The city did include the fol-
lowing clause in the boma,
Wolf Creek Ranch and Viscaya
development agreements
"Should the proposed develop-
ment create traffic burdens on
the city or county roads serving
the property, developer will'
provide such additional rights-
of-way and improvements as
may be necessary to alleviate
those burdens."
(That's lawyer talk for:
"We're going to fight over this
one for a long time").
The Aug. 28 article also
implies that because two of the
projects didn't materialize six
years ago, they may never
materialize.
Why should they materialize
this time?
1. This time the contractors
will be able to connect to city
water and sewage, eliminating
the need and expense of
sewage and water treatment
plants.
2. The city is not asking for
any environmental require-
ments other than what.the state
requires. The county had much
tougher environmental require-
ments, way above. what the
state requires and tougher envi-
ronmental requirements cost
the developer land. And that
reduces his profit.
3. The last time, with the
county agreements in their
pockets the developers could
stall and shot for a better deal.
The city wanting annexations,
to increase their tax base, gave
them the best deal any contrac-

tor could ever ask for. No need
to stall any longer.
Ramon Gavarrete said that
the.city had not received all of
the required approvals to devel-
op and that may be a problem.
Things that could be a prob-
lem.
1. Environmental - The city
has taken the position that the
environment is the state's
responsibility, not theirs. This
may be a problem.
2. Enclave - Some say (with
good cause) that the city has
created an illegal enclave out of
Foster Beasley Estate. If so,
this could be big problem.
3. Sparta Road - In its pres-
ent condition, may not be able
to safely handle the increased
traffic, the developments will
bring. This could be the biggest
problem of all.
The article -states that,
"Commissioner Barbara
Steward did not want to hold
road capacity for speculative
developments. Which may or
may not come in, especially
when local applicants are pre-
pared to build closer to urban
water and sewage lines."
My question is, if Sparta
Road is filled to capacity, by
local developers (on county
potential development land),
can and will the county com-
mission stop the city develop-
ers from building some or all of
the purposed developments
now slated, in order to assure
adequate and safe travel on
Bassage and Sparta Road?
Or must the incumbent resi-
dents using Sparta and Bassage
Roads suffer from "Fast zon-
ing, big profits and poor plan-
ning"?

ly refuses to believe the biblical
concept of reaping what he
sows. How many cities do we
not know to have been
destroyed and leveled with the
ground by reason of the sins of
the inhabitants, whom God
could no longer bear with, lets
us know that when God wishes
to punish, he is able and knows
how to do it. "The daughter of
Sion shall be left ... as a city
that is laid waste."
If you please, may I share
with you this one example. Ina
Asia, when the great tsunami
took place, there was a sex
'industry there where children
from a young age are taught,
even enslaved into prostitution.
Not too long ago, one
American man paid $10,000 to
have sex with a 10-month-old
baby. Oh how many melan-
choly examples and scores of
holy scripture could I cite to
- you on natural calamities and
divine threats. St. Basil - "No
one troubles himself about
inquiring why drought, light-

they are sent to us on account
of our sins and because we pre-
serve an impenitent heart." In
cap. 9 Isaiae.
What this nation really needs
is a good old-fashioned spiritu-

consequences of sin and the
need to repent. And so alas,
once again God is looking
down and shaking his head,
asking what more must happen
before we ever respond to his
holy invitation.

Apologies are

nothing new
editor:'
The apologies lor President
Bush. rather than admit errors
were made, continue to ridicule
critics pertaining to the Katrina
hurricane disaster. This is the
same political strategy used
from the first day of Bush's.
term.
A little history will help the
reader recall the policy utilized.
Each press release, each
announcement emanating from
the White House noted that
Bush was on top of every issue.
He was informed and deter-
mined as to how each issue was
to be treated. His leadership
was steadfast and consistent.
He knew what he wanted and
he achieved it.
Yet, his term of office was
not successful until Sept. I1.
Then all the domestic problems
were put aside to fight the war
on terrorism. Three and a half
million people lost their jobs;
those who did work earned less
than they did two years before;
however, the focus was the war
on terrorism.
The war on AI-Queda in
Afghanistan was diverted to
Iraq, which never posed any
threat to the United States.
The record will show that
Saddam Hussein was a paper
tiger, a eunuch whose military
force was devastated by years
of bombing by U.S. and British
planes. Bush's whole policy
about Iraq was based on a lie.
He and Defense Secretary


Rumsfeld believed that war
would be a "piece of cake."
They could win this war on
the cheap. Recall that Gen.
Colin Powell had half-a-mil-
lion troops ready to attack Iraq
in 1991 and Gen. Sedecki
urged that several thousand
Iroops would be needed for this
war. le was cashiered.,
Rlumsfeld was going to
"'win" this war with 150,000.
Blunder after blunder has led
up to the current status.
Contrast this with the "Shock
and Awe," as Rumsfeld
"washed his hands gleefully"
as his air force destroyed
Baghdad and President Bush
declared "Mission Accomp-
lished" in May 2003.
This same political strategy
included cutting taxes for the
wealthy and reducing wages
for the masses. It included the
reduction of funding for the
dikes surrounding New Orleans
in 2002, '03, '04 and '05. There
were several studies and emer-
gency scenarios in the last four
years of what could happen
with a four or five hurricane,
but that fell on deaf ears. The
environment (New Orleans,
global warming, melting gla-
ciers, national forests) were not
priority items. Where $2, $3
billion could have prevented
flooding New Orleans, now
$62-plus billion are needed for
the clean up and rehabilitation
of nearly one million victims.
Gov. Bush claims Florida
rebounded from Hurricanes
Charley, Floyd and Jeanne. Part
of that rebounding was new
roofs costing two or three times
the normal costs. Dade County
got $30 billion with no hurri-
cane. In central Florida, thou-
sands of people are still waiting
one year later for FEMA to
-deliver funds for roofs and
houses. Millions of dollars are


still uncounted for.

Both Republlicans and
Democrats, plus impartial par-
ties want strict accountability
for those $62 billion. They
don't want more instant mil-
lionaires while the "little peo-
ple" continue to struggle for
survival. There are now ques-
tions about the Homeland
Security Bill. Again, recall that
both the Patriot Bill and
IHomeland Security Bill were

Today is Sept. 11, JAN
four years since that
day when the horrific attacks on
our shores awakened us to a
despicable enemy who has no

we'll never forget.
In fact, the continual deploy-
ment of our troops is a constant
reminder of that day and what it
takes to bring hope and safety
to our nation. Our military is
strong and compassionate as
they place themselves in harm,s
way for us. This blend, of
courage and mercy helps
assuage grief's overwhelming

focuses on combating the

So, when I looked at the cal-

For a few moments, it seemed

Streaks' rally

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
HAINES CITY - Fool me twice, shame
on me.
Such was the sentiment of Sebring head
coach Jared Hamlin, who said his own
playcalling was to blame for the failure of a
second straight Blue Streak rally Friday

night in a 19-14 loss at
Haines City.
"My play calling was ques-

quarter," he said. "So I've got
to get better."
The coach pointed specifi-
cally to a play on the second
of three fruitless drives inside
the Haines City 20. The
Streaks (0-3) had a second-
and-one from the 11, and


after T.J. Williams was stopped for no gain,
Hamlin called an option play on which
quarterback A.C. Wilson was cut down for
a 3-yard loss.
"I was running the option. I shouldn't
have been doing that, so that's my fault,"
Hamlin said. "I think in, that situation that

defense's effort stand up, com-
pleting 13 of 22 passes for 220
yards and a touchdown,
although he got a little help on
that score when Johnson broke
up what looked like a sure
interception by Roderick Clark
at the 5-yard line, and the ball
bounced right into the hands of
Taiwan Perry, who took it into
the end zone for the first score
of the game.
Hill's favorite target was Bo
Comadore, who caught seven
passes for 91 yards, but it was
big catches by Perry and
Johnson that set up Avon Park's
other touchdown, a 5-yard
James Young run in the second
quarter.
"Offensively, we did just
enough to win," Cousins said.
"We ran for one (touchdown),
threw for one, the quarterback

Paintsville Lake a Kentucky jewel


I recently returned from a
very pleasant trip to that beau-
tiful part of our country called
Kentucky. Though I have never
lived there, I feel as though I
am home when visiting those
hardwood forested mountains
that cover the eastern part of
the state.
My brother-in-law, Johnny
Lafferty, has lived there all his
life except for those years in
the 1940s when the Army took
him to.Europe. His small farm
lies along the banks of the Big
Sandy River near Prestonsburg.
Johnny is getting along irt
years and no longer labors long
hours on the farm. Just a few
years ago his younger brother
introduced him to bass fishing
and though his brother is now
gone, he thoroughly enjoys
fishing on Paintsville Lake.
Located near Staffordsville,
Paintsville Lake winds for 10
miles or more like a huge
snake in the deep mountain
valleys. In some places the
lake stretches to nearly a half-
mile wide while its depth,
reaches 150 feet in many
places. Inhabiting this
Kentucky jewel are catfish,
trout, walleyes, smallmouth
and largemouth bass.
On a warm August morning,
Johnny and I put his boat in as
the sun was just coming up
over the crest of the mountains.
Johnny was taking me to the
part of the lake he knew best.
As the early morning fog lift-
ed, a few whitetail deer along
the banks seemed unafraid as
they paused to watch our boat
skim up the lake and ahead of
us, Canada geese honked their
displeasure as they lifted off
the water to avoid our boat and
its wake.
I can understand why
Johnny loves this lake. The
scenery can take your breath
away as you travel up its

length. The steep, tree-covered
hillsides at times give way to
beautiful, low rolling green
hills. There are tall layered
limestone cliffs rising up in
some places to the height of a
three-story building and in the
many coves, trees, though dead
still stand, making natural
cover for the bass and other
fish that live there.
Johnny slowed the boat and
we pulled into one of the
coves. I thought the place
looked so good that the bass
might just jump into the boat. I
tied on a crank bait with a big
lip because the water ran from
6 to 20 feet deep.
With the boat sitting in
about 18 feet of water, I made
20 or 30 casts to the shallower
water with no response. We
worked the boat over to the
shallower water and started
casting to the deep water.
Johnny had brought a bucket
of minnows and while I was
casting, he was baiting a rig for
crappies.
I got a strike and promptly
lost the bass as it wrapped
around a sunken limb. By this
time, Johnny had his crappie
rig in the water and was back
to casting for bass. He jerked
his rod high and hooked what
seemed like a good-sized bass.
Bringing it to the boat, it
turned out to be a 12-incher.


I switched baits to a square-
lipped, different colored crank
bait. I could feel the bait
bouncing off tree limbs under
water and I very quickly got a
strike and brought a small bass
to the boat. I turned it back and
cast toward a huge slab of
limestone that had slid from a
cliff into the water. A few casts
around the slab and I hooked a
smallmouth about 12 inches
long.
Johnny had caught four
crappies by this time, but the
bass weren't too fond of what
we were offering, so we moved
up the lake. We decided to try
a huge limestone cliff. We
switched to black plastic
worms and casting against the
cliff at the waterline, we let the
worm sort of roll down the
face of it. Working the worm
slowly, you could feel the steps
as it dropped from one to
another.
After what seemed 100
casts, we had caught six small
largemouths and one small-
mouth bass 14 inches long.
The sun was now high in the
sky and it was getting hot, so
we both agreed to call it a day
and started back down the lake
to the ramp.
Before loading the boat, we
released the crappies and the
one smallmouth from the
livewell and Johnny poured the
remaining minnows into the
lake. We loaded up the boat
and headed for home and
Johnny turned and said, "Well,
we didn't catch much, bud, but
it sure was a nice morning on
the lake."
My reply: "Johnny, every
morning is a good morning
when you can spend it with a
-good friend on a lake as beau-
tiful as this."

College Football

Florida-Georgia game, staying in Jacksonville through 2010


Associated Press
JACKSONVILLE - Florida and Georgia
agreed Friday to continue playing their annual
rivalry in Jacksonville through 2010.
The schools had-two years remaining on the
current contract and spent much of the summer
working on 'the four-year extension.
The game has been played in Jacksonville
since 1933, except for three years. The Gators
didn't field a team in 1943, and the matchup
moved to campus sites in 1994 and 1995 because


of renovations to Alltel Stadium.
There had been support on the Georgia side to
return the game to campus sites or rotate it
between the Georgia Dome and Alltel; both
schools acknowledge that the neutral site some-
what favors the Gators because Jacksonville is
much closer to Gainesville than Athens.
Florida has won 13 of the last 15 meetings.
Known as "The World's Largest Outdoor
Cocktail Party," the game generates an economic
impact of about $25 million for Jacksonville.


STREAKS
Continued from IE
you've got that going, and you
think you're always going to
make them, and you can't count
on that. You can't always count
that big play. I thought we
should have just kept hammer-
ing, and I didn't do it."
The Streaks also squandered
a pair of even better chances,
coming away without any
points after first-and-goals at
the 6 and the 9. Just as Hamlin
lamented a lack of aggression in
one circumstance, the coach
believes he could have taken to
the air instead of calling five
straight Williams rushes on the
team's final drive.
"They were giving us the
slant, and we didn't throw it,
and a couple times they were
giving us the fade, and we did-
n't throw it, and we should
"have," he said. "And that goes
back to I saw (Haines City)
;being tired, so I thought 'Let's
just keep pounding.' There's
some things I could have done."
While Hamlin's counterpart
:knows his team didn't play the
-perfect game either, Haines
:City head coach Bill Buldini
,was nonetheless grateful for a
victory that gives the Hornets
.one more than they had all of
'last season.
"We can't complain about
:winning," he said. "It wasn't
:pretty. We had a great first half,
Sand then the second half, they
:came back and hurt us a lot with
:that counter'play. We know we
: need to work on that the second
:half of the season. I think we
-need to condition a little bit
-more. than what we're doing."

Palmetto the previous week,
Haines City experienced deja
vu as well on Friday, a week
after a similar escape against
Lake Wales.
"It's just a belief that they
know they can win that comes
with winning," Buldini said.
"This is a special group of kids.
They hang in there; they play
tough."
The Hornets built their nest
egg on the strength of quarter-
back Kendall Berry, who
rushed for 132 of his game-high
177 yards in the first half and
scored on a pair of long runs,
from 29 and 36 yards out.
Yet after Haines City went up

6-37


19-0 with 5:49 to go in the sec-
ond quarter, the Sebring
defense gave up only one more
first down until the final drive
of the game, and yielded only
33 second half yards.
"We made a couple adjust-
ments there. We were kind of
sitting there showing them
things," Hamlin said. "So we
started stunting a little bit.
"But the kids just stepped up
more than anything else. It was-
n't so much the calls that we
made. The defensive side of the
ball stepped up."
Despite its conspicuous fail-
ures, the offense experienced a
similar awakening as Hamlin
reconfigured his personnel.
Wilson saw most of the work
under center, and Williams
shined in his new role as fea-
tured running back, racking up
123 yards and a touchdown on
19 carries.
"T.J.'s so young, and he's
starting to get it," Hamlin said,
"and he's starting to play older
now and that's good to see."
Wilson scored the first
Sebring touchdown, on a 25-
yard run with 3:18 left in the
first half, and Hamlin named
him the starting quarterback for
next week at Pasco.
"We've just got to get him a
lot more reps at quarterback,"
the coach said. "We split time
this week and he got better."
Hamlin hopes having Wilson
under center from the beginning
can help solve the team's first
half woes.
"We've got to get that cor-
rected. If we can start off fast,
and then come out and keep it
going like we've been doing the
last two weeks, we're going-to
be all right," he said. "I guaran-
tee you we're going to start fig-
uring that out."

Lake-Placid running back O.J. Williams tries to shake off Okeechobee's Josh Raulerson Friday night.


DRAGONS
Continued from 1E
three interceptions. Lake Placid
(1-1 overall) was able to move
the ball between fumbles, but
just kept putting the ball on the
ground.
Lake Placid quarterback
Quay Crenshaw actually had a
much better night, completing
five of 12 passes for 64 yards
and. one interception. He also
had two sure TD passes
dropped in the end zone. The
Brahmans amassed 283 total
yards and the Green Dragons
had 210. The difference was in
the turnovers and, more pre-
cisely, when they came.
The tone of the game was set
early, as the Lake Placid quar-
terback fumbled on the first
play from scrimmage. That
time offensive guard Brandon
Jones pounced on the loose
football, but on fourth-and-9 on
their 29, the Green Dragons
erred when Eric Lodge blocked
Jones' punt. Taking over on the
Lake Placid 20-yard line,
Conrad hooked up with Virgil
Barrett for 16 yards on the first
play of the drive and Spencer
bulled in from the 4 on the sec-
ond play. Place kicker Omar
Guererro split the uprights for a
7-0 Brahmans lead with 10:11
to play in the opening period.
Lake Placid picked up a cou-
ple of first downs on the ensu-
ing possession before turning
the ball over on downs. Lake

Veley intercepted a Conrad pass
and returned it 20 yards, but the
Dragons fumbled away the ball
two plays later, setting up
Okeechobee's second scoring
drive beginning at the Dragons'
36. Spencer polished off the
drive with a 5-yard TD run off
tackle right. Guererro's kick
missed wide right with 1:14


Lake Placid got the ball back,
fumbled, and Okeechobee (2-1)
scored three plays later when
Conrad hit junior wide receiver
Devon Faison for a 9-yard TD
strike. Guererro's kick raised
the lead to 20-0. The Dragons
turned the ball over again on the
ensuing drive, but staved off
more scoring when George
Rasmussen intercepted a tipped
pass for the Dragons.
The second half brought on
more of the same as
Okeechobee scored 20 more
points and would likely gotten
more -if not for the running
clock during the last six min-
utes.
Conrad scored on a 1-yard
plunge up the middle and
Guererro's kick raised the lead
to 27-0 with 11:19 left in the
fourth period. Spencer broke
loose for a 24-yard TD romp
the next time Okeechobee got
the ball and Guererro's kick
raised the tally to 34-0.
Two plays later, Lake Placid
fumbled on a bad exchange
between backup quarterback
Veley and O.J. Williams and
La'lke McNeil scooped up the
ball and rumbled 30 yards for a
TD. Stephen Gist blocked
Guererro's kick to end game
scoring.
Tarik Hendricks also had an
interception for the Green
Dragons - his second of the
season - on the seventh play
of the third quarter, but that
drive resulted in a shanked
punt.

THE V ID EO GAME PAGE


FEATURE OF THE WEEK: "Darwinia"


An


un-nal


selection
"Darwinia"
Introversion Softwa)e; PC; $29.99
PEGI Rating (UK): Age 7+,i .. ., i. .,
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
****-% Score: 4.5 out of 5
A seriously imaginative, downright
visionary realization of post-neo retro gam-
ing, "Darwinia" is both completely familiar
and yet like nothing you've played before.
Actually, it's like many games you've played
before, but never all at once, and never look-
ing quite this cool. Part real-time strategy,
part "Centipede"-generation twitch action,
part virtual sleuth adventure, part
"Lemmings"-like micro-managerial sim,
part, uh, Etch-A-Sketch ... a weird, multi-
hybrid that needs a new genre definition.
"Darwinia" is coyly dressed in stark sim-
plicity, with a look, sound and general
ambiance reminiscent of the hallowed
Hollywood watershed, T,, ' ... except
with little digital stickmen and defiantly
homely pixels and sprites that come off as
elegant in their simpatico world of topo-


graphical grid landscapes laced with pseudo
vector beams.
It's a 3D world full of 2D characters, a
"virtual theme park" inhabited by apparent-
ly sentient little programs called
Darwinians, currently plagued by a mali-
cious virus. Sucked into this world and guid-
ed by Darwinia's programmer from the out-
side, it's your job to manage the situation,
muster squads through a menu overlay and
hand-drawing of gesture-symbols that serve
as commands.


"Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance"
Capcom; Pio ,yS' a i,2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Mature (17+) (blood, strong language, violence)
**i Score: 2.5 out of 5 -
A game that scores a few merit
points for ambitiousness and then
little else, "Beat Down: Fists of
Vengeance" tries to be a role-play-
ing game (RPG) for free-roaming.
*3D fight-game fans. You play out a
cliche story of mob-wannabe char-
acters wandering around a nonde-
. script ghetto, picking up gratu-
itously violent gang members,
chatting with potty-mouthed denizens that may or may not offer,up some
useful tidbit of information about the point of it all, managing your
attributes and changing your clothes way too often in order to free-roam
incognito.
But mostly you're just fighting, which is the better part of the game
(sometimes you can just beat the living pride out of someone, rather than
the living ta;r, so they'll do your bidding or give you money or more info),
but even then, unexceptionably so.


You also actively participate in virus vio-
lence, manually aiming for your '80s fla-
vored avatars bleeping, blipping and bloop-
ing their way through 8-bit viral eviscera-
tion..
While it takes only a little while to get a
handle on novel/familiar gameplay, mission
complexity ramps up along the way, with
singular missions easily eating up an hour
or so, but you'll never notice, because it's all
so enthralling. (Sold in North America via
download only at www.darwinia.co.uk)


"Kim Possible 3: Team Possible"
Buena Vista Games; Game Boy Advance; $29.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (cartoon violence)
**** Score: 4 out of 5
' Like 'way too many Game Boy
Advance games, "Kim Possible 3:
Team Possible" is all about side-
scrolling platform hopping, ledge
climbing, shooting sideways,. -
bauble collecting and gadget- f
assisted puzzle solving, level after
boss-laden level.
That said, it's a solid representation of this prevailing
GBA genre, plus it features not one but two of the cooler
TV-kid-show characters, Kim P. and her pal, Ron Stoppable
(and sometimes naked mole-rat Rufus), both playable
through each level.
It also offers co-operative play if you have two games,'
two GBAs and a link cable, which makes it all at least
twice as fun. Difficulty may be a little harsh for the very
young, but "Team Possible" is nevertheless bang on the
money when it comes to interactive cross-merchandising.
