Bank


robbery


trial bogs


down in


second day

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A bank robbery trial
already expected to take more than a week
bogged down during its second day over
how sheriff's deputies handled a weapon
taken into evidence.
* In the midst of those arguments
Thursday afternoon, the trial stopped com-.
pletely. Circuit Judge Olin Shinholser had
received allegations of one or more
Highlands County deputies discussing tes-
timony while waiting outside the court-
room.
Shinholser had deputies questioned by
attorneys to settle the matter. Neither he nor
attorneys found testimony to support the
allegations, except for initial reports from a
defendant's family 'member and a bailiff
assigned to the case.
Between 2-3 p.m., the family member
reported overhearing deputies asking others
what they should say on the stand. He also
said she saw one reading another's report.
About that same time, the bailiff report-
ed seeing deputies sharing reports. After
discussing it with the deputy in question, he
notified Shinholser, who then removed the
jury and investigated the matter.
He has asked attorneys what to do, if
anything, about the situation. They want to
review the transcript of Thursday's testimo-
ny. They may ask to: have some testimony
stricken from the record, and a silver-finish
automatic handgun associated with that tes-
timony not allowed into evidence.
Shinholser has ordered a special hearing
at 8 a.m. today on that issue.
The gun allegedly came from Ednol
Antonio Hanna III, 17, a defendant in the
Jan. 7, 2005, SouthTrust bank robbery. He
and codefendants Stepfone Vadle Buckle
Jr., 17; Samuel Etheredge, 17, and Robert
Lee Vann, 18, each face charges of robbery
with a firearm, burglary of a conveyance
and grand theft of a motor vehicle.
Deputy Sheriff Kris Ahler reportedly
arrested Hanna after a car chase to
Highway Park, south of Lake Placid.
Oberhausen, Hanna's attorney, said Ahler's
testimony was inconsistent, with memory
gaps, in regard to when he recorded the
serial number off the gun.
Reportedly, Ahler originally put the gun
for safekeeping in the trunk of Sheriff's

Countywide protocol for drug


lab responses nears completion


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - County and state
officials are in the midst of developing
a countywide., i,'l'-diciplhirijy pro-
tocol to clanty' and tormalize respons-
es to meihamphe.amine laboraioriels
The focus is oil protecting children
who live ,at these clandestine labs,
which are often small operations,
located in a family kitchen or bath-
room. The need to create the docu-
ment, which is officially known as
Drug Endangered Children, is consid-
ered urgent given the dangers meth
labs create,
According to the protocol's fact
sheet, "With each batch of meth pro-
duced, poisons are released into the
air that pollute and contaminate the
immediate area." Children are particu-
larly vulnerable, especially the
youngest who crawl along the floor.'
Wednesday, 19 different agencies
met for a second time to review the
second draft of the protocol.
The wide network was necessary
because each of the 19 agencies has

responsibilities - some in dealing
with the children, some in dealing
with the hazardous inaterial, some in
dealing with the makers of the meth,
s.I... ii, handling the legal issues.
Agencies as disparate as the
Department of Children and Families,
the Highlands County Emergency
Operations Center, the state's attor-
ney, all police and fire departments,
The School Board of Highlands
County, the Department of Health and
the Guardian Ad Litem have interests
and responsibilities.
Further complicating matters is the
need for a comprehensive, highly
detailed guide.
Determinifig jurisdiction, prioritiz-
ing needs, listing appropriate actions
and accounting for legal complexities,
has been a challenging task.
The sheriff's office has guided the
process.
The protocol provides structure for
joint investigations. A key responsibil-
ity for all agencies involved in an
investigation will be to maintain the
inter-agency contact needed to coordi-


nate over all actions and treatments.
There are highly detailed proce-
dures for who does what at the scene
of a clandestine lab, or when chemi-
cals or paraphernalia are present..
It also outlines the steps an investi-
gation should take, as well as involve-
ment of hazardous materials teams,
emergency medical services, and the
fire departments.
In fact, the protocol tries to antici-
pate every eventuality, so that by fol-
lowing it, a first responder, or follow-
up caregiver, will know exactly what
to do.
The protocol is so detailed it even
contains two separate guidelines to be
used when interviewing children liv-
ing in residences where meth is manu-
factured; one for use with children in
the house at the time of police arrival,
and one for children who were not
home at the time.
Being a second draft, most of the
protocol's language and content are
already in place, although some
adjustments are going to be made as a

Schaeffer out, Negley



in Sun 'N Lake board


By ROMONA WASHINGTON.
Executive Editor .. N, " '"
SEBRING - Sun 'N Lake Supervisor
Robert Schaeffer could sense his fate.,
Facing a recall election that would bring
about his removal, Schaeffer asked the
improvement district's board of supervisors to
unseat him themselves on Wednesday. Since the
board could not, by law, simply remove one of
its own members, Schaeffer was forced to wait
until later that day to find he had been voted out
by a 4,600-119 margin.
Circuit Court Judge David Langford cleared
the way earlier in the day for the election on the
fate of Schaeffer and two other board members.
'Sun 'N Lake votes are distributed by lot, and
not by person, and the electorate, dominated by
multi-lot corporate landowners, took down
Schaeffer while retaining Charles McHale and
Robert Severino by lopsided margins.
Roughly half of the individual lot-owners left
Sun 'N Lake Community Center before a sec-
ondary election, which selected Florida
Hospital Heartland Division Associate Vice
President John Negley to replace Schaeffer in a


4,604-21 decision over Thomas Bond.
Resident Tom Dowdy, a former board mem-
ber, received applause when he stood before the
board asking Schaeffer to reconsider his motion
for the board to remove him from office.
"Turning this board over to the three proper-
ty owners is putting puppets on the board and it
will be a disservice to the residents who put you
in office," he said. "They would own Sun 'N
Lake."
Initially, the three entities that own large
numbers of lots, asked for the removal of the
supervisors holding landowner-elected seats.
But Greg Spiro, manager of National
Recreation Properties Inc., said Wednesday
that, based on recent news accounts, "specula-
tion of their intent has led people to draw the
wrong conclusions."
He said they - the three large property own-
ers - did not want a hostile takeover of Sun 'N
Lake. For two years, he said, his agency has
worked hard and taken pride in the community,
bringing truck loads of supplies in after the hur-
ricanes hit last year and before it was even open

County postpones decision



on Lake Denton until Oct. 4


Residents want

access completely

closed
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Lake Denton
residents will have to wait until
Oct. 4 for an answer on crowd-
ing and littering problems at the
public access ramp.
County commissioners said
Tuesday they want more infor-
mation before deciding what to
do about- illegal parking, litter-
ing, public drinking, and people
using the bathroom, changing
clothes or practicing lewd
behaviorat tha lake.
CounIt Admini.trator Carl
Cool and Parks and Recreation
Director Vi'lcki Pontifus pro-
posed putting 21 parking spaces
in the Sebring Parkway Phase 3
right of way on the east side of
Lake Denton Drive. That and
restroom facilities would cost
$61,000.
Cool first proposed expand-
ing parking in 2001. Residents
later refused it, and still don't
like the idea.
Jersey barricades across the
ramp now allow only swim-


mers and portable boats, and
keep motorists and large boats
away from swimmers. Portable
toilets have temporarily solved
the restroom problems, Cool
said, but don't provide room to
change clothes.
Parking would be fixed with
a sod pad, he said, and the rest
is law enforcement. The speed-
limit on the road is 25 mph and
"no parking" signs could solve
illegal parking.
Parking has been the biggest
problem there for the last 25
years, said Maj. Robert Lee of
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
U.S. Army Capt. David
Simpson, a resident on the lake,
said the ordinances don't work
without enforcement. People
who are drinking throw their
bottles over a fence when a
deputy arrives, he said.
Sebring resident Ray Napper
suggested residents might use
video cameras to catch violators
in the act.
Some divers don't use buoys
and flags, Simpson said - a
danger since residents have
boats moored on the lake. There
must be 75 or more parking
spaces, too, he said, especially
for all of the out-of-county visi-


tors who don't pay local taxes.
"We've tried ordinances for
20 years," Simpson said. "We
want it totally closed."
Diving instructor Preston
Colby said divers could instead
use Lake Tulane and Lake
Verona, both of which have
parking, restrooms and chang-
ing areas. He said any tempo-
rary fix at Lake Denton isn't
worth it if a young child walks
out in front of a car.
Commissioner Bob Bullard
argued that closing public
access was a last resort, a sign
government had failed to reach
consensus. If the problems are
illegal activity and crowding,
enforcement is the solution, he
said.
The residents and elected
officials should decide, not "the
hooligans."
Highlands County residents
use the beaches, too. Long Boat
Key, Bullard said, had the same
problems as Lake Denton when
he worked there as a firefighter.
It came to be called "Beer Can
Island."
Specialized police patrols put
a stop to it, Bullard said, sug-
gesting that could be the answer
again.

City and county tax


boundaries unclear


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Avon Park
city limits are sharply defined
on a map, but much blurrier
when it comes to taxes.
Alleged dual taxation of the
city of Avon Park was a hot
topic at the Tuesday meeting of
the Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners.
The city is contending that
the county is taxing property
within city limits and using the
money for services to benefit
areas outside Avon Park.
County commissioners pre-
pared a response by providing a
breakdown of cost incurred by
Highlands County in unique
services to the city.
Avon Park City Manager
C.B. Shirey appeared before the
commissioners to argue the
city's case.
"I have found fault with the
board's assessment of service
expenditures, in that many of
these services were funded by
other means, including ad val-
orem taxes," Shirey said.
County Administrator Carl
E. Cool cited the expenditures
of the county in comparison
with the ad valorem tax contri-
butions of Avon Park.
"Looking at the contributions
versus the services provided,


you can see where Avon Park
receives many more services
than cities outside Highlands
County receive from their
counties," Cool said.
Shirey maintained that the
statute should be looked at
more closely, along with the
figures used by the commis-
sioners to justify their stance.
"The dual taxation and the
figures you are using are like
comparing apples and
oranges," Shirey said. "The
dual taxation issue is not a part
of those figures."
Avon Park based much of its
information on a survey con-
ducted in 1980 and the statutes
that were set by it. Due to the
amount of time that has passed,
the records of that study have
since been destroyed and the
only remaining records are
those of the minutes of meet-
ings held at that time.
A temporary compromise
was struck when both sides
determined more time was
needed for research into the
issue.
Commissioners will provide
the city of Avon Park with- the
figures they used to make their
determinations in advance of
further discussion at the Oct. 4
county commissioners meeting.

AVON PARK - Public
housing authorities across the
state have been ordered to hold
vacant rental units in the wake
of the Hurricane Katrina disas-
ter.
Alice Oldham, executive
director of the Avon Park
Housing Authority, said last
week that the order was issued'
by the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban
Development in hopes of assist-
ing those hurricane victims who.
were living in public %using
but were displaced due to the
hurricane.
Oldham said one account she
has heard is that there is as,
many as 50,000 displaced pub-
lic housing and Section 8

voucher families who will be
looking for homes.
The Avon Park Housing
Authority board met Friday to
amend its policies on occupan-
cy to specify a preference for a
disaster-affected family.
Previously, it allowed no pref-
erence, simply a first-come,
first-served based on qualifica-
tions.
Oldham said there were
seven units vacant as of
Thursday. She had already been
contacted by one . faitfly.;
However, they were>not-for-
merly in a HUD-assisted pro-
gram. Until HUD releases
vacant units for public housing,
Oldham was not sure when she
would be able to assist the
young family.


Bullard speaks to Ivory Club


SEBRING - In keeping with
their vow to bring the most top-
ical speakers to area citizens,
the Highlands County Ivory
Club has invited Highlands
County Commissioner Bob
Bullard to speak on the upcom-
ing budget for the 2005-06 fis-
cal year.
"I read- in the paper where
Highlands County will be expe-
riencing a 15 percent increase
in tax revenue this year due to
the big jump in property valua-
tion," Ivory Club President
Steve Roberts said. "We're anx-
ious to find out why everybody
is sharing in this boom but the
taxpayers."
At the Sept. 8 public hearing
for the budget, county staff
members reported the revenue
generated from ad valorem
taxes this year represents a
14.97 percent increase over the
rollback rate. That means, in
order to produce the same


amount of taxes as the 2004-05
fiscal year, the county could
reduce the millage back to
7.8279.
"We'd like to see the county
roll back the millage to 8 mils
instead of keeping it at 9 mils,"
Roberts said. "Overall, that still
would represent a tax increase
in terms of the amount of
money that would be coming
in."
Roberts pointed to the fact
that The School Board of
Highlands County, which also
reduced the amount of its mill-
age this year. Nevertheless, it
still translates into a tax
increase due to the amount of
property tax money being col-
lected.
The Ivory Club meetings are
the third Thursday of each
month at Homers Restaurant in
the Sebring Square shopping
plaza. Dinner is at 5 p.m. with
the presentation at 6 p.m.

Remember

When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Langford denies rehearing to


delay Sun 'N Lake election


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Attorney Jim
McCollum made a last-ditch
effort to get a rehearing to halt
or delay the Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring landowner election, but
it didn't work.
Circuit Court Judge J. David
Langford allowed McCollum to
add evidence, testimony and
motions to the complaint he'
filed Monday. However, in light
of the fact it came. so late before
the election Wednesday morn-
ing, he allowed the election to
continue.
McCollum is certainly
allowed to challenge the ruling
at a later date, Langford said.
When he asked McCollum if
there would be anything else,
he answered, "I'm sure there
will be, Your Honor."
On Wednesday, McCollum
cited a citizen-made tape of an
August meeting where supervi-
sors set the date for the
landowner election. Allegedly,
there was no mention on the
tape of an actual vote by the
board of supervisors at Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Special

God promises to heal
America! If.
"my people, who are .
called by My Name shall
humble themselves and
pray, and seek My face
and turn from their
wicked ways, then will I
hear from heave, and
forgive their sin and
heal their land."

Improvement District to set that
date.
"An action to remove three
members, a majority of the
board, should be done by a for-
mal act," McCollum said.
Instead, they set the date by
consensus. They also ,didn't
have to have the election within
30 days of the request for a
recall, McCollum said, but had
to set a date within those 30
days.
On top of that, McCollum
argued, there was no motion, no
vote taken, and no statement by
Robert Schaeffer, chairman of
that board, of a motion being
carried.
Attorney John Lobozzo,
speaking for the district, said
consensus is a reasonable way
to handle an issue. It's, done
regularly by the county com-
mission with a portion of the
meeting called a "consent agen-
da."
In rebuttal, McCollum said
that list is for non-controversial
items, and county commission-
ers regularly remove items
from that list for discussion.
Afterwards, it is always voted


on.
McCollum noted that
Schaeffer, absent during
Tuesday's hearing, was present
Wednesday to testify how there
was no actual vote on setting
the election date.
Schaeffer, McCollum said,
had been told he didn't need to
be at the hearing Tuesday, and
had a pressing personal matter.
Although Schaeffer's name was
originally mentioned on
Tuesday's request for an injunc-
tion and other motions,
McCollum insisted that was an
error.
The burden is on the district
to prove its recall steps are
valid, McCollum said. He
asked the court to allow a
rehearing and stop the election
until he and counsel for the dis-
trict can each investigate what
took place and argue whether it
was valid. Otherwise,
McCollum said, the rights of
the people are in danger.
Lobozzo said he only
received McCollum's nwv
motion at 4:50 p.m. Tuesday,
with very little time to research
the case.

Highlands students set



to 'See You at the Pole'


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Prayer has
been at the forefront of many
American minds since
Hurricane Katrina ravaged the
Gulf Coast.
These prayers will be a cen-
tral point of the annual "See
you at the Pole" movement to
be Wednesday, Sept. 21.
See You at the Pole is a stu-
dent-initiated and student-led
prayer movement. During the
event, students gather at their
school flagpoles to pray for
their schools, country and peo-
ple in need.
This year's theme is "Pray:
Call 2 Me," which is based on
Jeremiah 33:3, "Call to Me, and
I will answer you, and I will tell
you great and mighty things,
which you do not know."
Promotional material for See
You at the Pole will include cell
phones and text-messaging.
Students have been encour-
aged to use' text messages to
remind their friends to pray
before, during and after the
Sept. 21 event.
The separation of Church
and State prevents public
school leaders from actively
organizing See You at the Pole
events, however most leaders
support the efforts made by stu-
dents.
Allen Altvater, associate pas-
tor at First Baptist Church of
Lake Josephine, is confident
that the students of Highlands
county will work together for
the event.
"See You at the Pole is stu-
dent lead and organized,"
Altvater said. "It is up to the.
students to decide what they
want and make it happen."
Around the country and
around the world, students are
"making it happen."
According to the "See You at
the Pole" Web site
(www.syatp.coin), in 2004 more
than 2 million students met for
See You at the Pole in the
United States.


International reports of like
events list countries on six con-
tinents, including Congo,
Bahamas, Germany, Ghana,
Guam, Hong Kong, Ireland,
Italy, Japan, Kenya, South
Korea, Malaysia, Nicaragua,
Nigeria, Norway, Peru,
Portugal, Romania, Singapore,
and South Africa.
Andrew Katsanis, executive
director for Highlands County
Youth for Christ, believes stu-
dents will have a good turnout
this year.
"Last year over 900 students
gathered ,at Highlands County
schools for See You at the
Pole," Katsanis said.
Katsanis is proud of the stu-
dent involvement.
"What makes it (See You at
the Pole) possible are the stu-
dent leaders," Katsanis said. "It
is so powerful when God's
young people come together to


pray to Him."
While it is a student organ-
ized event, youth pastors and
Highlands County Youth for
Christ employees will be at
each middle school and high
school participating in the
event.
The Pole event is scheduled
for 7:30 a.m. at school flagpoles
throughout Highlands County.
While most schools have an
outline for their individual
event there will be "open
prayer" time where others may
pray aloud.
This will be the last year
SYATP will be on the third
Wednesday of September. In
2006, the "official" date will be
the fourth Wednesday of
September (beginning with
Sept. 26). This change is to give
students more time to organize
the event after the beginning of
the school year.

BANK
Continued from 1A
Sgt. Jess Purvis' patrol car.
Purvis testified he had Deputy
Sheriff Manny Gonzalez drive
the car to the Lake Placid
Substation to get Hanna and
Buckle away from the scene
while other officers got
Etheredge out of a nearby
house.
After about six hours, the car
came back, Purvis said, and
everything was in the trunk was
as he last saw it.
Meanwhile, Ahler testified
before lunch Thursday that he
didn't remember writing down
the serial number from the gun,
packaging it, signing the pack-
age, making out an evidence
receipt, or putting both in a
locker at the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office. After lunch,
when shown the gun as pack-
aged, he said the handwriting
was his.
Oberhausen said the six-hour
break, and Ahler's memory
lapse about handling the gun
had tainted it as evidence.
Assistant State Attorney Joan
Hughes said Ahler had memory
lapses even after being shown
his initials on the package, but
his statements were bolstered
by Purvis' testimony. Since
both men testified before the
allegations of shared testimony
came to light, she believes
Ahler's statements about the
gun are valid.
Meanwhile, she didn't find


the testimony about alleged
shared testimony "forthcom-
ing." She believes deputies may
have been hasty in removing
suspects and'evidence from the
scene quickly, but she doesn't
believe it harms the evidence.
Hughes spent all day
Wednesday and most of
Thursday establishing the series
of events from the start of the
robbery to the chase and cap-
ture. First bank tellers and man-
agers told where they were,
what they did, and what they
saw and heard during the rob-
bery. Some remembered two
people. At least one claimed to
see three. Security camera pho-
tos showed men in black and
dark clothes - one with cam-
ouflage bottoms or pants. One
had a silver handgun. Another
had what looked like a double-
grip assault pistol. One had a
shopping bag.
Witnesses a block away testi-
fied to seeing a white sedan
speeding down the road with at
least four black males hanging
their heads or their bodies out
the open windows while "red
smoke" billowed from the car.
Allegedly, one had a shopping
bag hanging out the window
with him.
Nearby, residents of Lemon
Tree apartments testified to
either seeing a green
Oldsmobile four-door sedan
parked facing out, unoccupied
with the motor running, or see-
ing four black males speeding
into the parking lot, get into a
green four-door sports sedan
and take off, heading down Bell

The greatest concerns had to do with issues of

BOARD
Continued from 1A
- for business.
- "When we came here this
community was really in a sad
state," he said, pointing to
improvements the company has
planned and already begun.
NRPI, Tanglewood Investors
and Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center each own more
than 100 lots in Sun 'N Lake.
Even amongst the big three,
NRPI controls the lion's share
of land, and only used the votes
of 4,000 of its lots in
Wednesday's election.
The dominance of NRPI was
exhibited not only in
Schaeffer's removal, but the
retention of McHale (4,676-51)
and Severino (4,486-222) as
well.
It was Spiro who nominated
Negley as Schaeffer's replace-
ment. Negley is a former board
member who resigned his post
and moved to California last
year, but has now returned to
his post at the hospital.
Last month, the three big
property owners wrote a joint
letter to the board expressing
"extreme concern oyer the man-
ner in which the Sun 'N Lake
Improvement District is being
governed."
The letter went on to say that
the development has been
"exposed" to the rest -of the
nation thanks to the recent
property boom and a nation-
wide marketing campaign.
"... Sun 'N Lake has become
a desirable place to live for
many Americans and its poten-


Street, then south on U.S. 27.
From there, testimony cen-
tered around where Sebring
police officers, Florida
Highway Patrol troopers and
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies were when they heard
a message to be on the lookout
for the green car, and what they
did in response to it.
Several times, attorneys
objected to officers comment-
ing on what they heard from
dispatchers on the basis that it
was hearsay. Once, Oberhausen
even made an objection to a line
of questioning by fellow
defense attorney Christopher
Boldt.

Motorcyclist

dies of injuries
News-Sun
SEBRING - A Sebring man
died Wednesday afternoon
from injuries he sustained in a
Tuesday night motorcycle acci-
dent.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol reports, Robert
M. Howze, 22, of 5046 Dewey
Ave., was riding his 2005
Suzuki motorcycle north on
U.S. 27 in the outside lane at
about 11 p.m. The motorcycle
left the roadway and struck a
metal pole at Lagrow Road. It
then spun counterclockwise
and slid on its left side.
He was transported to Lee
Memorial Hospital where he
died.


early as next week, suggested instead that a small
delegation be sent to Washington D.C. early next
month to attend a national workshop dedicated to
creating this type of protocol.
As a result, the representatives of the various
agencies will meet again to review the third, and
perhaps final draft of Drug Endangered Children,
on Nov. 2, after hearing a report from the delega-
tion.
In the meantime, concerns expressed at
Wednesday's meeting will be addressed, and the
protocol amended before the next meeting.


tial as a successful, lifestyle
community is finally being
realized," the letter stated.
"Now that we have the financial
wheievithal to achieve the goal
that was set when this commu-
nity was first developed, it
would appear that our board of
supervisors is either unwilling
or incapable of executing those
tasks that are necessary to
achieve that goal."
Concerns about absentee bal-
lots was also heard. Property
owner Dick Miller, who


embarked on a 1,200 round trip
to participate in Wednesday's
vote, questioned why none
were sent to out-of-town own-
ers.
Supervisor John Clark said
the board was following the
charter and state law. Miller
then challenged the board, say-
ing the charter may not stipulate
such action, but "morally and
ethically, if you were really
interested in what's best here,
you would have done so."

Arson suspected in blaze at



St. Agnes Episcopal Church


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Fire investiga-
tors suspect arson in an early
Wednesday morning fire at St.
Agnes Episcopal Church.
' Investigators say someone
set fire to the back part of the
church at 4:34 a.m.
Det. Kevin Shireman of the
State Bureau of Fire and Arson
said the fire did $10,000 of
damage to the vestibule, or'
narthex, just inside the main
doors. He ruled out any acci-
dental causes, such as electrical
wires, that could have other-
wise caused the fire.
That leaves a match, lighter
or torch, he said. A canine unit
from Manatee County sniffed
out possible accelerant.
Shireman took samples and has
sent them to a lab for results,
which he hopes to get today.
The Rev. Jim Kurtz of St.
Agnes Episcopal Church was
shocked by the fire, but main-
tains that services will continue
as usual.
Sebring police first received
word of the fire about the same
time it is to have started.
Sebring Fire and Rescue
received a call at 4:42 a.m.
Ladder 1 and Engines 11 and 21
responded at 4:49 a.m. Within
six minutes, firefighters had the
blaze under control. It was con-
tained to the one building.
By 6 a.m. they were ventilat-
ing smoke and calling fire mar-
shals. Fire crews cleared the
scene at 8:20 a.m.
The cost of the destruction is
uncertain at this time, as insur-
ance adjuster's continue to
determine the damage.
"There is extensive smoke
damage throughout the
church," Kurtz . said.
"Thankfully the fire was con-
tained in the baptism area, near
the rear of the church."
The church had another fire
in its construction and demoli-
tion Dumpster just the day
'before - 4:20 a.m, Tuesday.
Shirelhan doesn't know the
cause, of that fire because his
office was never called to


KATARA SIMMUNS/News-Sun
State Fire Marshal detectives Kevin Shireman and Gene Walker
investigate a possible arson Wednesday morning at the St. Agnes
Episcopal Church along Lakeview Drive in Sebring.


investigate.
Shireman is coordinating his
investigation with the federal
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms as part of the
National Church Arson Task
Force, which combats arson tar-
geted at religious organizations.
As for the people responsible
for the blaze, Kurtz had only
one response.
"They -obviously have real
problems," Kurtz said. "They
should get help."
The church had been under
renovation. The fire started in
an area full of sealed paint and
paint thinner cans, but appar-
ently none of them were used to


start the fire.
Contractors said the church
had just received insurance
funds to do repairs caused by
severe weather. Until recently,
the A-framed building had a
blue tarp roof. Work had started
just after Labor Day weekend.

Anyone with information on
this fire is urged to contact the
State Fire Marshal's office in
Bartow for a possible $2,500
reward. Call Det. Kevin
Shireman at (863) 581-5009.

Foster parents, adoptive families needed for many animals


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
For 40 years, the Humane Society
of Highlands County has provid-
ed shelter to lost, homeless and
abused animals.
But with a shelter that is often at
capacity, workers and volunteers are
looking for a few good "foster homes."
Jake is one of those "foster pets" that
hopes you have what it takes to be an
adoptive parent.
He came to the Humane Society of
Highlands County soon after he was
bom. Unfortunately he was shy, with-
drawn, and even hid from visitors,
which affected his ability to get adopt-
ed. Recently foster parents in
Okeechobee completed three months
with Jake, socializing and house train-
"ing him.
"Jake is quick to learn. He's been
leash and crate trained, and even cleans
his paws before entering the house. He
gets along fine with other animals and
children, but is still a bit leery of


strangers," volunteer and Humane
Society board president Marvene
McPhee said.
Jake, also known as Stormy, is an
English setter/retriever mix that weighs
53 pounds. He is neutered,,on heart-.
worm preventive medicine, and all his
shots are up to date.
After three months in a foster home,'
Jake would like a permanent home with
a fenced-in yard. He craves and gives
love and attention. Contact Belinda, his
temporary foster parent at (863) 763-
7999 or Marvene at 465-0156.
The Humane Society is always in
need of people who will adopt or be a
loving foster family. They will hold
volunteer orientation classes at 11 a.m.
Saturday, Sept. 24, in Sebring. If you
want to learn more about the program,
call Betty Humphrey at 386-5419 or
Barbara Shrewsbury at 699-2455.
The shelter also advocates animal
welfare, community involvement and
education. As a non-profit organiza-
tion, it exists on 100 percent donations
and bequests.


"Volunteers are the backbone of the
Humane Society and fill many crucial
roles: greeter/guide, dog/caf compan-
ion, events and fund raising, transporta-
tion, telephone and office support, and
foster parent, to name a few, McPhee
said.
There are a variety of ways to help at
the shelter. The animals need to be
walked., or socialized. People are need-
ed to clean cages, feed and water, and
change litter.
"It's hard work, but our volunteers
really make a difference in the animals'
.lives," McPhee said.
Answering the phone is a big job,
and there's always maintenance work.
One could help transport animals or
pick up food. Or perhaps you have an
aptitude for computer skills.
The monetary donations pay all the
other normal costs associated with run-
ning business like insurance, employ-
ees, lights, water, electricity and phone
costs. Plus there are always vaccines
and other medical necessities.
A board of nine members oversees


the operation of the Humane Society.
"Ours is a 'hands on' board. They
(members) -are so involved. They do
publicity, animal care, take photos for
Pet Finders, located on the Web site,
and they write and maintain the Web
site and newsletter, which is published
four tinies a year," McPhee said.
The Humane Society holds fund-rais-
ers and encourages business sponsor-
ships. Volunteers go to schools and
educate young people.
"The Humane Society is sincerely
interested in the welfare of each animal
and also the betterment of the shelter."
At the shelter, there is now a tiny
adoption room, where potential adopt-
ing parents can go in and have some
peace and quiet to meet and bond to an
adoptable pet.
"We have exercise pens, and the
Rotary recently sponsored some puppy
kennels. We even have a cemetery
where one can have their pet buried
with prior arrangements," McPhee said.

Slow-moving Ophelia soaks N.C. but

no early indications of severe flooding


By MARGARET LILLARD
Associated Press Writer
NEW BERN, N.C. -
Hurricane Ophelia weakened
slightly and slowed to a crawl
Thursday along North Carolina's
Outer Banks, soaking the fragile
barrier islands even as it
appeared the storm had not
caused the severe inland flood-
ing many feared.
At midday Thursday, the
storm was nearly stalled off the
Outer Banks, drifting eastward
at just 3 mph. The National
Hurricane Center said the
storm's northern eyewall could
remain over the Outer Banks for
another 12 to 24 hours, extend-
'ing Ophelia's passage through
North Carolina to a third day.
Thousands of homes and busi-
nes's had no electricity.
"If you have been asked to
evacuate and did not, now is not
the time to do it, especially if you
are in the Outer Banks," Gov.
Mike Easley said at a mid-day
storm briefing.
The storm had sustained wind
of 80 mph Thursday morning,
down from 85 mph earlier in the
day, the hurricane center said. It
was expected to bring 3 to 5 inch-
es more inches of rain along the
Outer Banks.
Hurricane warnings covered
about 220 miles along the state's
coast from Surf City north of
Wilmington to the Virginia line,
where a tropical storm .warning
- covered the mouth of'


Chesapeake Bay.
Easley said between 12 to 15
inches of rain fell in some south-
ern coastal locations, including
Wilmington, where rain had
stopped Thursday.
"I think we will be dealing
with water in some places for a
while," said New Hanover
County emergency management
director Warren Lee.
But after the storm turned
toward the east during the night,
early indications were that flood-
ing was not as bad as feared.
With the storm hugging the
coast and the eye staying off-
shore, road flooding and beach
erosion were the most significant
problems, a state official said.
"So far it's staying out, so
that's been a saving grace to this
point," said Hunter Birckhead, a
Division of Emergency
Management spokesman.
Beyond damage to privately
owned piers along the coast,
"there's been very little structur-
al damage," Birckhead added.
"It's mostly shingles and minor
roof damage to this point."
In New Bern, on Pamlico
Sound, water was receding
Thursday after failing to reach
the flood levels seen during
2003's Hurricane Isabel.
Robin Robinson said she came
out of her house before dawn to
find that the high-water mark
overnight was a foot or two short
* of the front stoop where flooding
crested two years ago.
'J -


"We pretty much dodged a
big, slow-moving bullet, I tell
you," New Bern. Mayor Tom
Bayliss told CNN. He said the
town had high water and spo-
radic power throughout the
night but was "pretty lucky."
However, high water had
trapped some people in their
homes in the community of
Harlowe, said Chuck Webb,
assistant chief of the Harlowe
volunteer fire department.
"They are stuck," Webb said.
"They are on islands."
About 225 people spent the
night in four county shelters,
Craven County manager Harold
Blizzard said.
At 11 a.m. EDT, Ophelia was
centered about 30 miles south-
southwest of Cape Hatteras. It
was drifting erratically toward
the east- northeast at 3 mph.
The hurricane center said it
did not expect the, eye of the
storm to make landfall but the
outer eyewall, the ring of high
wind surrounding the eye, could
pass over the Outer Banks.
As the storm passed over the
banks at midmorning Thursday,
Dare County spokeswoman
Quinn Capps said there were no
reports of flooding or major dam-
age on Hatteras Island.
Following the criticism of its
response to Hurricane Katrina,
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency had 250
workers on the ground - a larg-
er-than-usual contingent.

Bush orders

DCF to resume

required foster

care visits
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Bush
told the Department of Children
& Families to rescind a gasoline
saving measure that temporarily
suspended required monthly
visits to many of the state's near-
ly 50,000 foster children.
The governor said Thursday
he was unaware of the policy
outlined in a Sept. 8 memo until
hearing that The Miami Herald
was writing an article about it.
He then called DCF Secretary
Lucy Hadi and asked her to
make sure monthly visits contin-
ued despite rising fuel costs.
"We're trying to conserve
energy, which is appropriate. We
are the largest institution in the
state. We need to lead by exam-
ple," Bush said. "But not to jeopW
ardize the safety of children. I
asked the secretary to rescind
that requirement and that we
should be vigilant to make every
effort to. visit foster care chil-
dren once a month."
In 2002, Bush ordered the
department to make sure the
required monthly visits were
being done after the discovery
that 4-year-old Rilya Wilson was
missing from her foster home
and her caseworker hadn't visit-
ed her in more than a year.
Wilson has never been found
and prosecutors have charged
her former caregiver with mur-
der.
The Sept. 8 memo cited the
fuel crisis created by Hurricane
Katrina and said caseworkers
should have face-to-face contact
with children every 90 days.
'Family Safety Program
Director Beth Englander sent
out a second memo Thursday
that said, "Effective immediate-
ly, the Department has deter-
mined that the need for this tem-
porary procedure has abated
and therefore, the temporary
policy is withdrawn. All children
who are served by the Family
Safety Program are to be seen
according to established operat-
intgpolicy and procedure:" '

NTSB: Pilots' poor planning


caused blimp, plane crashes


Associated Press
CORAL SPRINGS - A blimp
pilot's decision to steer away
from its base instead -of landing
during a violent storm caused
the aircraft to crash, the National
Transportation Safety Board has
concluded.
Goodyear's Stars and Stripes
blimp encountered stormy
weather as it approached
Pompano Beach Air Park after
an afternoon flight June 16 to
Miami Beach'.
In a preliminary report, pilot
Daniel L. Thomas of Deeffield
Beach told investigators he
intended to land as soon as pos-
sible. After spotting lightning
strikes, he decided it would be
safer to fly west so. the ground
crew would not have to tether
the blimp's nose to a metal moor-
ing mast during the storm.


ANIMALS
Continued from 9A
the orientation classes teach
how to be good foster parents
and volunteers.
Pets need a safe and secure
haven. The Humane Society
wants to be sure that other ani-
mals in the proposed family
are compatible. An important
factor is whether there are kids
or grandkids and their ages.
They want to make a match
that will make both the parent
family and the adopted animal
happy.


But the weather quickly dete-
riorated, and Thomas told inves-
tigators that the 192-foot airship
got caught in heavy rain, light-
ning and downdrafts, and was
unable to climb or maintainn
directional control," according to
the report made available online.
According to the NTSB's
probable cause report, Thomas'
"inadequate in-flight planning/
decision" led it into hazardous
weather, which caused him to
lose control.
The blimp struck trees and
power lines before crashing at
6:52 p.m. into the roof of Coral
Springs Mini-Storage.
The report noted that a thun-
derstorm alert had been issued
for the,area, including the crash
site, until 7:35 p.m.
Neither Thomas nor his pas-
senger were injured in the crash.


You can be Jake's second
chance for a loving home.
Adoption Center Hours are 11-
a.m to 4 p.m. Tuesday through
Saturday. They're closed
Sunday, Monday and most
major holidays.
All -donations are tax
deductible, and each adoption
includes a $25 voucher toward
the cost of altering any kitten
or cat or a $35 voucher toward
the altering of any puppy or
adult dog adopted through
their facility. Also included is
eight weeks of canine obedi-
ence training.

Plenty of blame

There is plenty of blame to go around in Hurricane
Katrina's aftermath ... New Orleans officials bear their
share, especially in how some evacuations were not car-
ried out. So does Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco, who
didn't act fast enough to formally ask for federal help,
which the law requires.
But more than anything, Katrina ripped away the
facade that was the Bush administration's disaster "plan-
ning" for homeland security - a plan it has spent four
years and billions of dollars to develop since the Twin
Towers fell.
What the nation really got is colossal incompetence
and inexcusable bureaucratic bungling that has caused
needless death and suffering on an epic scale.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami told every-
one well in advance - including top federal officials -
that Katrina was ,a monster that would trigger a huge
storm surge, likely swamp New Orleans' levees and
cause catastrophic flooding.
And then there's President Bush, who showed how
blind he was by saying no one thought the levees would
break, despite the loud warnings and years of studies that
accurately predicted they would.
The Katrina-was-too-big-to-handle apologists conve-
niently forget this:
A nuclear or chemical attack by terrorists in a major
urban area could easily cause a city the size of New
Orleans to be contaminated and uninhabitable, spawning
the same immediate and huge demands for evacuation,
shelter, food and medical care as Katrina.
And do it without warning.
That's what Bush's Department of Homeland Security
was supposed to be prepared for, but obviously wasn't.

I bought gas last
week.
I didn't really need
it, but they said we
would run out in five
days.. I had a half-
tank with lots of
places to go. I might
get a generator in
case power goes out.
I didn't want fo wait
in line when that hap-
pened.
Besides, there was


a line. It must have been some-
thing good.
It was - Premium, $3.50 a
gallon.
The station had "run out" of
regular and mid-grade. A bunch
of irritated and frantic people
waited, scared they wouldn't
get their trunk-mounted 50-gal-
lon drums filled.
People were panicking.
Thank God we got New
Orleans under control. Looters
were terrible. Never mind that
they couldn't wear 10 pairs of
Levi jeans while treading 20


C-span absent

in Highlands
Editor:
Senate confirmation hear-
ings for two Supreme Court
hearings will soon begin and
here we are in Highlands
County with still no C-span 2.
But the people in charge of our
programming, whose office is
located in Sarasota, allow C-
span 2 to their customers in the
Sarasota area.
Surely I am not the only
Comcast customer in our coun-
ty who is interested in the U.S.
Supreme Court, the court that
affects each and every one of
us. If any of our citizens agree
that C-span 2 should be avail-
able to us I urge them to call
their local Comcast office. It
takes more than one to get their
attention.

Doing anything

for the votes
Editor:
This letter to the editor is
being written in reply to the
writer calling President George
Bush election or re-election as
fraudulent.
This article is not for the
benefit of the writer, who
would not be interested in find-
ing out anything to change his
opinion of the elections of
President George Bush, but to
those readers interested in hear-
ing the other side of the issue.
I will not write the complete
article that appeared in the
Tampa Tribune, Sept. !29, 2004
issue titled "The Florida Myth
- Spinning tales about 2000 to
boost Black Turnout."
This article was printed with
the permission of the Wall
Street Journdl(C)2004 Dow
Jones & Company, Inc. All
rights reserved dealing with the
2000 election of President
George Bush.
.- Anyone can get copies of
back issues of any article of
any newspaper.
The Democrats try to con-
vince everyone that the
Republicans are racist, but the
Democrats do everything to use
the black voter to keep them
from voting Republican, and
keeping them in their voting
camp. It is racist when
Democrats use a particular
group of people with false-
hoods in trying to control their
minds.
The second part of this arti-
cle is the fact on abortion ...The
elected women in Congress try
to convince everyone that the


feet of sewage water,
gasoline and brine.
They had to go
"shopping."
Well, a 60-inch
plasma screen televi-
sion will look great
on a homemade raft
built out of another
neighbor's roof and a
washed-up outboard.
Some even stocked
up on ammunition to
fire at helicopters and


airboats trying to rescue the few
survivors baking on the few
roofs still poking above a newly
restored Mississippi River
Delta.
Oh, and did you know you
can distill flood water for gaso-
line for your generator? That
way, you can watch all the loot-
ing carnage on your TV.
Still, I saw people get irritat-
ed in Sebring because a gaso-
line line wasn't moving fast
enough. What's the big hurry to
fill a 60-gallon tank with 93-
octane, to burn up a gallon


Roe vs. Wade keeps thousands
of women from dying from
back alley abortions, seemed to
have missed the fact that the
first place that practice abor-
tions under the law was
Washington, D.C., in a very
short time after the Supreme
ruling.
Seems strange when large
states where thousands of
women live was not the first.
I think' if anyone of those
government girls working in
Washington, D.C., during
World War II would write a
book on the working conditions
pf the female working in, gov-
ernment it would expose the
truth of why Washington D. C.
was the first. It was a well--
known fact that each apartment
housing of those government
girls had their own doctors per-
forming abortions long before
it was legal. (Information com-
ing from gals who, left
Washington, D.C., as govern-
ment workers.)
Would it not be strange if in
later years that the Supreme
Court ruling was not for the
rest of the country, but our own
national Capital. and its sur-
mountable problems back in
the 1950-1960's and they used
the Supreme Court to solve
their problems using a case
where the person in, the case
never had an abortion and is
now fighting against Roe vs.
Wade.

Don't give the

liberals power

Editor:
In answer to James Marine's
letter about our "fraudulent


every 10 miles.
Now, it's time to conserve:
That thing we did in the 1970s
when gasoline jumped from 19
cents to (gasp) 75.
That means share the ride.
Carpool. Drive something with
better gas mileage. Consolidate
trips. Don't speed. Drive less.
Walk or ride a bicycle. Some of
the recent bike club riders regu-
larly commute on pedal power.
How about parking further
out in the parking lot and walk-
ing off an extra 10 pounds each
day on your way in?
My first car was a 1973 Ford
Galaxy 500 "Star Destroyer." I
swear I could hear "March of
the Stormtroopers" every time I
cranked it up.
Great in its day, but when I
got it, it used a quarter tank of
gas for a trip into town.
Pumping gas included pumping
up the front left tire, or I didn't
make it home.
It also took a fleet of tug
boats to get me in and out of
parking lots.


president," it is clear to me that
he is a Bush-hater. Let me see if
I can help him out a little bit
with his questions:
1. The word fraudulent
means nothing to me because
Bush was elected fair and
square, unless he means that
only liberals are elected honor-
ably.
2. The national debt com-
pared to the GNP (gross nation-
al product) is around 19-20 per-
cent, the same as the Clinton
years. No one complained
about the national debt then.
3. I am glad that Bush has
taken the war on terror to the
enemy. I would rather fight
them in Iraq than on our own
soil. This is a huge commit-
ment and a must win situation
for our country, because we are
dealing with an ideology,
which is part of their religion,
that tells them to kill us. We
must not let that happen. Like
Patton said, "You win wars by
making the enemy die for his
country."
4. Democracy, or Islamic
theocracy in Iraq, makes no dif-
ference to me. Saddam is out
and that is the important thing.
5. How did Bush contribute
to the pitiful plight of the peo-
ple in poverty? Since Lyndon
Johnson's war on poverty, more
than $5 trillion has been spent
on programs that have done
absolutely nothing except pro-
duce more poor people. The
Bush tax cuts have benefited
companies and they were able
to hire more people as the
economy grows. The best
weapon against poverty is a
job, not throwing money at
"feel good" programs. Besides,
I have never seen a poor person
create a job.
6. If you don't like $3 a gal-


'War reporting can and does give rise to myth and

misunderstanding. Exhibit A in the lineup of media

myth is the utterly mistaken view that the yellow

press of New York City fomented the Spanish-

American War in 1898. Newspapers assuredly did

not bring about that conflict.'
W. JOSEPH CAMPBELL, journalism educator, American University, 2003


And speaking of harbors, the
port at New Orleans is opening
only slowly. It's full of debris.
Still, that hasn't stopped people
from begging to rent my Cape
Coral cousin's recreational boat
to sail to New Orleans, sneak in
though the canals, and see if
their other house is OK.
He refused, flat out.
Even if the Coast Guard
would let you into the harbor,
that boat's not .coming back
without a few bullet holes.
You're not going to bring a big
screen TV safely back across
the Gulf before the next hurri-
cane arrives, either.
You'd have better luck hiring
a looter to bring it to you on an
.outboard roof.

lon for gas, then stop driving,
or move to the Netherlands,
where you pay $6.50 a gallon.
Or better yet, take a cab and see
how much that costs you.
7. The money was there to
fix the levees in New Orleans,
but the democratic mayor and
governor used the money for
other purposes and only used
1/2 of 1 percent of it for shore-
line defense. Somehow this is
Bush's fault? New Orleans is
the biggest example of the, fail-
ure of liberalism this country
has ever seen so far. With the
money that has been pumped
into that area over the years,
this should have been a utopia.
Where did all the money go?
I have seen this kind of letter
before and, as usual, liberals
just want to cry, pout, whine,
point fingers, yell, scream,
accuse, use race-baiting, use
name-calling, divide, ignore
the constitution, make up laws,
change the rules, use the courts
for their own selfish purposes
and never, ever, ever solve
problems.
No. Bush is not perfect, but
can you imagine the state this
country would be in if Kerry
were president? That's why we
must never give liberals posi-
tions of power again.

Put the domed

stadiums to use
Editor:
As I continue to read that
everything is on the table to
help in the Hurricane Katrina
disaster.
If this is the case, why don't
we just suspend the profession-
al football season until after
Christmas and open all the
domed stadiums to evacuees?
There is the World Congress
Center and football dome in
Atlanta, the Metrodome in
Minnesota and many other
domed stadiums across the
country.
This would also spread these
folks in desperate need around
so that one area doesn't become
overwhelmed. This season has-

easy to do.

generate much revenue for the
pockets of these sports indus-

tries and for the cities that have
football teams, but maybe the
NFL could be a little more con-
siderate and generous and lead
by example by taking this
unprecedented and bold step to
help in such desperate times.
And might I add, I am deeply
touched and impressed by the
work and monies generated by
the Shriners. When they run
and sponsor a Shrine Circus or
football games, they will gov-
ern and direct much of their
monies to various charities and
Shriner hospitals for the chil-
dren.
My brother, Genaro, is mul-
tiple handicapped and has been
in the Shriner hospital in
Chicago many times. I can tes-
tify to the great work they do. If
you have or know of any
youngster in need of help, I
highly recommend contacting
the nearest Shriner office and if
I may also add: I came from a
circus family of third genera-
tion and am the last retired cir-
cus veteran in our family.
I will say the best and funni-
est days of my youth were
spent performing and working
in the Shriner's Circus dates up
north. The Madina Temple in
Chicago, - Detroit, Ohio,
Philadelphia and so on. I have
worked with the Great
Wallenda - Patriarch and son
Ricky Enrico are also Shriners
and so I often still go over to
Sarasota and join them at the
Shriners Sunday brunch.
But let me try to stop for
now, sometimes I get carried
away in reminiscing.
But you see the show must
go on in spite of tragedies. We
should take note and learn a
lesson from these events in our
lives. But it does irk me some-
what with all of the multi-mil-
lions the NFL makes.


For example, the Bucs have
given very little to the schools
and even tricked the city tax-
payers to pay for the construc-
tion of a new stadium.

thank you for your time, happy
days to you all, what are your
thoughts? Please do write.

'When this is all over, let it have


1 Corinthians 13:12 - For
now we see in a mirror, dimly,
but then face to face. Now I
know in part, but then I shall
know just as I also am known
(NKJV).

I am only 86 so I am still
learning how to regard and han-
dle the issues of life.
Sometimes I learn from unusual
sources and sometimes those
sources have paid a high price
for my education.
I need to share a lesson I
have learned just recently, a les-
son that will surely impact the
rest of my life; a lesson for
which my teacher has paid and
is paying dearly.
Consider a man, a godly
man, a praying man who has
spent many years in obtaining
the education and the step-wise
experience to move into the
position toward which his entire
career seems to have been


pointed.
On the very eve
of his taking the
chair of that posi-
tion, he is diagnosed


FROM KEN'S DEN

Kenneth Hannum


with an aggressive
form of cancer. He will need to
go through the onerous routine
of destruction of the immune
system, isolation, a bone mar-
row transplant, etc.
He is so well regarded by the
organization he was to have
headed that they tell him,
"Don't worry, we will wait for
your recovery. We will cover
your base somehow until you
are able to return."
Recovery is slow, but the
man is finally able to begin
assuming some of his duties.
The doctors feel he is clear, but
there is one little thing in his
thorax that they want to check
out. They go in for a needle
biopsy. A blood vessel is inad-


vertently punctured.
His chest cavity fills
with blood; his heart
stops; his brain is
damaged. The biop-
sy is negative.


Over many months, this man
has now recovered to the point
that he can converse intelligent-
ly. You could have had a seem-
ingly normal conversation with
him. Ten minutes after you had
left, he might not recall that you
had even been there. According
to his wife, he lives "in the here
and now."
Strangely, he sat in on some
business meetings while visit-
ing work and made useful con-
tributions. All clung to the
remote hope that full recovery
could be possible.
Just recently the doctors have
found that the original cancer
has returned. The earlier regi-
men is again prescribed. His


meaning'
wife says he is aware of the sit-
uation, saddened but not
despondent. She asked him
what she should ask his friends
to pray for. And here's my les-
son: He said, "When this is all
over, let it have meaning."

This man's profoundly wise
reaction to a Job-like progres-
sion of disasters exercises my
soul! I am asking the Lord to
remind me at the appropriate
times to react as has my mentor:
Not to belabor the "why"s, but
just to pray that what He brings
into my life shall have meaning
in His cosmic scheme.

After all, I see through a dim
mirror. To me, this man's situa-
tion has already had meaning.

Hurricane Katrina, Act II - starring George Bush


Politicians


in m


Washington are often MnO
like motorists who MORu
drive only by consult- MO
ing their rearview mir-
rors and never look out DickA
of their'windshields to -
see what is going on
right now.
Our national political/jour-
nalistic complex is obsessed
with blaming President Bush
for failing to respond quickly to
the devastation wrought by
Hurricane Katrina. After weeks
of media pounding and casualty
figures that were, apparently,
wildly and widely exaggerated,
polls suggest that the public has
no choice but to agree with the
critique.
The CNN/USA Today/
Gallup poll of Sept. 8-11 shows


E
MR
M
.i


that only 44 percent of
Americans approve of
FROM the job Bush did
RIS immediately after the
storm. But so what?
orris , The same survey
-. shows that 58 percent
approve of the work he
has done since then in helping
New Orleans and the Gulf
Coast to recover from the
effects of the disaster.
The low job approval of
Bush's efforts in the week after
the storm will fade into history
and take its place alongside
similar criticism of his slowness
to act after the planes hit on
Sept. 11 or after the tsunami
struck late last year. What
counts for the future is that the
ratings on his recent perform-
ance are 20 points higher than
his overall job approval.


This positive affirmation of
the president's role in the past
few weeks is the leading indica-
tor Washington should be fol-
lowing. While all current polls
show Bush falling three or four
points in job approval to the
lowest of his administration,
these surveys reflect neither the
increasingly positive view of
the president's disaster-relief
efforts nor the bounce that he
always gets when we ,are
reminded of the horrendous
attacks of Sept. 11 on its grim
anniversary.
Democrats, such as Sen.
Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), who
are assuming a harsh critical
role in attacking the administra-
tion are making a huge mistake.
They are presenting an image of
partisanship and rancor at a
time when the nation wants its


political leaders to spread heal-
ing balm and work-together on
reconstruction.
The stories of the rapidity
with which the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency is bringing in mobile
homes and building temporary
housing, the bonding that seems
to be happening between
refugees and their new commu-
nities, the record outpouring of
charitable giving - greater even
than after Sept. 11 or the tsuna-
mi - all attest to the national
mood. If there is one time vot-
ers will be impatient with critics
and those who they feel are rak-
ing over the past to score politi-
cal points, it is now.
That is not to say that voters
will not demand a fair, impartial
and thorough review of what
went wrong in the relief efforts.

Learn to talk to

boys early in life
Many times the only mes-
sages that our boys receive
are the wrong ones. Boys are
taught how to play sports.
Boys are taught how to be
tough. Boys are taught how
to drive from an early age.
Boys are taught to view
women as objects sexually.
Seldom does a father teach
his son the correct way to
treat females.
Here is a scenario that a
father and son can play out:
Boy: Hey, Dad can we
talk?
Dad: Eh ... yes. What's up?
Boy: You see Dad there
are these kids who say bad
stuff about girls and how
they should be treated.
Dad: What do you mean
by that?
Boy: Well, I have heard
them say that their dad tells
them they must not allow
anyone to dawg them. They
must always have control.
And that's why when their
mom gets out of line he gives
her a reality check.
Dad: When they say reality
check, what do they mean? I
hope it's not what I'm think-
ing.
Boy: One of my class-
mates said that his dad slaps
his mom around, but his dad
said that he only does it to
keep his mom in line. And.
that smacking a girl around
once or twice is no big deal.
Every strong man slaps his
woman. He, said his dad said
that his mom knows she
deserves to be smacked
around for not doing things
right or for saying stuff and
that's why his mom only
cries and doesn't fight back.
Dad: Son certainly you
don't believe this is true?
Abusing anyone is wrong..
That goes for all humans. I
can see that you'd be con-
cerned because this type of
behavior doesn't happen in
our home. Let me share
something, with you. Abuse is
when people hurt others
deliberately over time for the
sole purpose of controlling
them. It's all about power.
They are bullies. Many of
thesepeople who are abusive
to others have low self-
esteem and the only way for
them to feel good about
themselves, is by hurting oth-
ers. Check out the play-
ground and see who are the
bullies. They are the ones
who call others stupid, ugly
or that no one wants to be
their friend. Saying things
like you can't be a part of the
sports team because you are a
wimp. Jealousy is also a big
factor, if you are well-
behaved and never sent to
principal's office or given
silent lunch, they'll try to bait
you to break school rules.
And you will be the first to
tell the teacher who broke the
rule.
Stop abuse before it starts.
Train your son to respect
women and girls. Boys need
to know that abusive behav-
ior of any form is wrong.

Violence hotline at (800)

Leading an active life with AMD


* This is the first of a two-part series
focusing on age-related macular degenera-
tion.

By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
Age-related macular degeneration,
or AMD, is the leading cause of
vision loss in people over the age
of 50. The specific causes of AMD
are not known conclusively, but it is known
that as people age, their chances for devel-
oping AMD and other eye diseases increase
dramatically.
In 1997, Dr. Clark Kupfer, then director
of the National Eye Institute, National
Institute of Health, stated publicly that
macular degeneration will soon take on the
aspects of an epidemic.
The reason is that baby boomers are
aging and overall life expectancy is increas-
ing. 'Since many people diagnosed with
AMD are over age 55, the number of cases
in the United States will increase signifi-
cantly as "baby boomers" age.
But "vision loss" is not total blindness.
"A common misconception about AMD
-is that many people believe they are going
to go completely blind. The macula - the
affected area - is one tiny area of the entire
retina. In the worst case scenario, you are
going to lose only your central vision," said
Dr. Valerie L. Moulds, who practices
optometry at Eye Specialists of Mid-
Florida, P.A. in Sebring.

What is AMD?
AMD is a progressive eye condition that
destroys light-sensitive cells in your eyes. It
is caused by the deterioration of the central
portion of the retina called the macula,
which is responsible for focusing central
vision in the eye. A decrease in nutrients of
the macula result in a gradual breakdown of
the light-sensing cells.
This damage leads to the formation of
yellow deposits, called drusen, beneath the
retina. These drusen are usually what an
optometrist sees during a routine eye exam
that leads to the discovery that a person hasi
macular degeneration.
"AMD is just an advanced aging process
of the macula itself," according to Moulds.
"It is similar to gray hair and wrinkles."
Like any natural aging process, it affects
different people at different rates. "Some
people have been exposed to more risk fac-
tors than others and their macula ages at an
accelerated pace," Moulds added.
. There are two types of macular degener-
ation: dry and wet. More than 90 percent of
those diagnosed with AMD have the milder


dry form of the disease, which causes a
slow decline in vision over time.
Wet AMD is less common, but is it more
likely to cause severe loss of central vision.
There are now new treatments available
which can slow the progress of wet AMD.
(This will be explained in the next article).
AMD does not affect side, or "peripher-
al" vision. This is the vision people call
"seeing out of the corner of the eye." This
means that a person's vision will not go to
black. However, AMD may blur the sharp
central vision, causing a loss of fine details.
"Even if you lose your central vision,
you will still retain your peripheral vision,"
Moulds emphasized. She explained that
patients with advanced forms of the disease
learn to use "eccentric fixation" - they look
beside the object they want to see.
"You can look at a person's ear and still
see their face," she said. "You can learn to
function this way and it works really well.

What are some early symptoms?
The most common early symptom of
AMD is slightly blurred vision. A person
may notice fatigue when reading and blurry
print on the pages.-Things may look fuzzy
when working up close. A person may have
difficulty recognizing faces. A person may
need more light when reading and perform-
ing other detailed tasks.
As'dry AMD worsens, a person may see
a blurred spot in the center of their vision.
If a person is looking into the distance, they
may not even notice this at first. They may
notice faded color vision. Numbers, letters
and objects may have gaps or fuzzy spots.
If the disease progresses beyond the
intermediate stage, as less of the macula
functions, central vision in the affected eye
is gradually lost. A person will still be able
to see light, shapes and movement; howev-
er the sharp vision needed for straight-
ahead activities such as driving will be
blurred. Most people with early dry AMD
can drive safely for many years, especially
during the day.

Risk factors
Observations of patients diagnosed with
AMD have identified several risk factors:
* AMD may be hereditary; if someone
in the family has or had AMD, a person
may be at higher risk for this condition.
This does not mean that a person will defi-
nitely get it, however.
* Women appear to be at greater risk
than men, but many men also develop
AMD;
* Caucasians are much more likely to
lose vision from AMD than African-
Americans;


* High blood pressure and high choles-
terol may increase the risk of AMD;
* Smoking may increase of AMD,
(source: www.amdhelp.com).
"Cigarette smoking can increase the risk
of contracting AMD by as much, as four
times," Moulds said. "If you smoke, put the
pack down and walk away."
It is also known now that exposure to
sunlight can cause retinal damage.
Moulds recommends that people take
measures to avoid exposure to UV light.
"Studies show that if you cut down on
the blue and violet rays that come from the
sun's exposure, it will lower your risk," she
said.

Sunglasses help
Since sunlight is the greatest source of
ultraviolet light, optometrists recommend
that their patients wear sunglasses with an
ultraviolet filter when spending time out-
doors.
"The best protection from the sun is
polarized lenses," said Bill Farmer, optician
with Eye Specialists in Sebring. "All polar-
ized lenses protect from UV rays, but the
advantage of polarized is that they protect
you from reflected glare as well as from
UV rays. However, they are always tinted."
Farmer added that people who wear
polarized lenses while driving will find that
the annoying glare from reflected sun on
the windshields of other cars will be
reduced dramatically.
If a person prefers not to wear dark glass-
es, UV protection can be put on clear lens-
es that have no visible tint at all, but this is
not polarized.

If only I


had known

earlier
* Commentary

By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
Today I am going to tell you
something that scared me when
I first learned of it. I have mac-
ular degeneration.
No, I'm not going to rear-
end you with my car. My dis-
tance vision is very good.
No, I'm not going to stop
writing, reading, or any of the.
other activities I really enjoy. (I
am going to stop sewing; I've
been looking for an excuse for
years.)
And no, I'm not going to feel
sorry for myself, because now I
know a lot more about macular
degeneration than I did at the
time of my diagnosis.
As my Grandma used to say:
"If only I had known then what
I know now."
I thought maybe you would
like to know now.
Many people know that mac-
ular degeneration is an incur-
able eye disease. It is the lead-
ing cause of blindness for those
aged 55 and older in the United
States. Age-related macular
degeneration (AMD) affects
approximately 15 million
Americans today. This number
is expected to increase dramat-
ically as the "baby boomers"
age and enter their 50s and 60s.
But "blindness" can be a rel-
ative term. AMD does not
destroy all of your vision. It
affects central vision; your
side, or "peripheral," vision is
not affected. For most of us,
vision deteriorates very slowly.
After I was diagnosed, I real-
ized I had had AMD for at least
a. year before my eye exam.
' "I just need new glasses," I
told myself.
What I really needed was the
truth and a lot of important
information. There are several
things you can do early in life
that will protect your eyes and
delay or prevent AMD. There
are other things you can do to
slow the progress of this condi-
tion. And there are many things
you can do to continue leading
an active life.
. I want to share what I have
learned so that you won't be
shocked if you discover you
have AMD. I hope you won't
glance at the headline and
think: "Yuck - eyeballs." I've
gathered information from eye
specialists, research sources
and people who have AMD. I
hope it will help you better
understand macular degenera-
tion and its effect on the lives
of those who have it.
And now you'll know!


Bill Farmer, optician, and Martha Montalvo, optical coordinator, show different
types and styles of protective eyewear available at the optical department of Eye
Specialists of Mid-Florida. 'The best protection from the sun is polarized lenses,'
Farmer said.

Andrew Niccol takes aim with



realism in 'Lord of War' flick


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
Associated Press Movie Critic
Andrew Niccol does satire, from the bril-
liantly pointed ("The Truman Show,"
which he wrote) to the oppressively heavy-
handed ("Simone," which he wrote and
directed).
"Lord of War" falls somewhere in
between. His story of an unapologetic gun
runner, played with great swagger and
charisma by Nicolas Cage, is smart, taut,
thrilling and darkly funny.
It's also meticulously researched, evoca-
tively detailed and relevant. Functioning
again as both writer and director, Niccol
based Cage's character, Ukrainian immi-
grant Yuri Orlov, on five real-life weapons
dealers and he re-enacted events that actu-
ally have taken place.
But it's precisely because he rooted the
film in such realism that his eventual slips
into preachiness and melodrama feel
unnecessary and out of place. Guns don't
kill people, people kill people. And people
with arsenals of AK-47s can (and do) kill a
lot of people. We get it already.
Yuri doesn't care who's firing his
weapons, or who their intended targets are.
He doesn't take sides. As he explains in one
of the movie's many voiceovers (which
could be considered a weak narrative
device, but here it helps set the sardonic
tone) he sells Israeli rifles to Muslims and
communist-made bullets to fascists.
His rise to the level of international
power broker from humble beginnings in
Brooklyn's Brighton Beach is a rush to
watch, like that of Henry Hill in
"GoodFellas," George Jung in "Blow" and


Frank Abagnale in "Catch Me If You Can."
(To borrow a line from, "The Breakfast
Club," a far more wholesome movie,
"Being bad feels pretty good, doesn't it?")
It's also a visual tour de force, the work
of cinematographer Amir Mokri and editor
Zach Staenberg. And make sure you get to
the theater on time, or you'll miss the amaz-
ingly inventive title sequence, which fol-
lows a bullet's journey through manufac-
ture and shipping until it's loaded into a gun
and fired at a young black boy's forehead
- all shown from the perspective of the
bullet itself.
Yuri's wayward .younger brother, Vitali
(Jared Leto), becomes his partner in crime
- that is, until the day the brothers are paid
in cocaine. From that point, Vitali gets
hooked on the drug and wanders wildly in
and out of rehab, but does one last bump
from the back seat of a limo each time,
courtesy of big brother Yuri. It's sort of a
going-away present; the gesture is strange-
ly sweet.
The way in which Niccol depicts Vitali's
addiction, though, is a prime example of
how he can be too obvious: It's accompa-
nied by the familiar strains of Eric
Clapton's "Cocaine." Similarly, as Yuri
moves the weapons out and rakes the dol-
lars in, we hear "Money (That's What I
Want)," and the sound of a cash register
cha-chings in time to the .slow-motion
movement of a rifle's action. It's too easy,.
really - almost Michael Mooresque.
But Yuri's method for snagging his
dream girl is truly inspired. Since he was 10
years old, he worshiped beauty queen Ava
Fontaine, who since has grown up to


become a supermodel. (Bridget Moynahan
plays her with statuesque blandness; then
again, she's not given much else to do.)
Yuri books her for a fake photo shoot, then
rents out an entire hotel to be alone with her
and flies her back to New York on a bor-
rowed private jet he pretends is his, all to
sweep her off her feet. Manipulative?
Deceptive? Absolutely - but again,
strangely sweet, and reflective of his infi-
nite resourcefulness.
Ordinarily, Yuri Orlov would be the bad
guy in-a movie about international violence
and intrigue. He'd be generically slick, per-
petually menacing Eurotrash - a support-
ing, character, not the one from whose per-
spective we see everything else. We'd be
free to judge him; we'd be encouraged to
do so, actually.
Here, he's not exactly the good guy
either - the term anti-hero was coined
specifically for men like Yuri - but Cage's
complex portrayal almost makes you want
to root for him to get away with everything
he's doing. Yuri dodges a dogged Interpol
agent (Ethan Hawke), competes with an
old-school gun runner (an underused Ian
Holm) and keeps his cool while negotiating
with trigger-happy despots,' like Liberian
leader Baptiste Senior (Eamonn Walker)
and his even more volatile son (Sammi
Rotibi).
Allowing Yuri to remain unrepentant to
the last is perhaps Niccol's most powerful
weapon of all.
"Lord of War," a Lions Gate Films
release, is rated R for strong violence, drug
use, language and sexuality. Running time:
122 minutes. Three stars out of four.


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
Associated Press Movie Critic
If you can't say anything nice, don't say
anything .t all - isn't that how the polite
saying goes? (Or maybe. it's: If you ,can't
say anN thinr'ilice. come sir by me Ar leaxs
that's how Olympia Dukakis' character
delivers the line in "Steel Magnolias.")
In searching for something to.say about
"Venom" - which, like "Steel Magnolias,"
was shot and set in Louisiana - the nicest
thing is this: It sure looks and sounds like
the bayou. You can see the steam in the
humid night air in director Jim Gillespie's
movie, you can hear the crickets chirping
and almost reach out and touch the sweat
glistening on the shoulders of the film's
attractive young stars.
But you wouldn't want to, because
they're all being pursued relentlessly by a
serial killer, and you might get an
appendage lopped off by a crowbar or a
knife or the front end of a tow truck..
All this happens and more, as a man pos-
sessed by evil souls through a voodoo
snake ritual - a man named Ray (Rick
Cramer) who already was considered a





Husband's


pretty creepy dude in the film's small town
- wreaks deadly havoc in the swamp.
(Yes, the movie is about people dying in
Louisiana. This is probably something
you've seen enough of already following
the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. It's
sort of amazing that "Venom" is seeing the
light of day at all, but Miramax has to
unload it and everything else before the
Weinstein brothers depart Disney on Sept.
30.)
And so aspiring doctor Eden (Agnes
Bruckner), her boyfriend, Eric (Jonathan
Jackson), their friends (Bijou Phillips,
Laura Ramsey, Meagan Good and D.J.
Catrona) and a couple of law enforcement
officials run for their lives with varying
degrees of success.
Gillespie also directed "I Know What
You Did Last Summer." Kevin Williamson
of "Dawson's Creek" and the "Scream"
series is one of the producers. Video game
creators Flint Dille and John Zuur Platten
wrote the script.
But you won't find a drop of irony here:
This is a straight-up slasher flick, which
probably should have gone straight to


video, for the cheesy-looking, computer-
generated snakes alone. Potential victims
do stupid things like ride a bike home from.
.'work, aldo, at night in the fog.,Qr vwanderj,
into a dilapidated, deserted gas stationand .
911 out, "Hello?" over and over until some-'�'
one they probably didn't want to meet up
with answers their calls.
It's hard not to laugh at a couple of
scenes that weren't meant to be funny,
though. One features the teenage friends -
who have holed up in a creaky old house
full of voodoo accoutrements, similar to
this summer's "The Skeleton Key" -
using one of their own (who's already dead)
as a voodoo doll, and stabbing him repeat-
edly in the leg to slow the killer down.
"I know it doesn't make any sense but
something really, really weird is going on,"
Eden says as people begin disappearing.
Thankfully, at 87 minutes, it doesn't go
on for long.
"Venom," from Miramax's Dimension
Films, is rated R for strong horror vio-
lence/gore, and language. One and a half
stars out of four. ,


pride in thin bride


makes her leery of pregnancy


Dear Abby: I am a 26-year-
old woman, married just over
19 months. My husbands
"Troy," is caring and supportive
- but he's prejudiced against
people who are overweight. He
makes- obscene jokes when he
sees large people in public and
generally has a bad attitude
about people with weight
issues.
We have recently discussed
starting a family. Frankly, I'm
scared to death of becoming
pregnant because of Troy's feel-
ings about weight. I admit to
being vain - I'm 5-foot-10, a
size 6, and I work hard to stay
that way. Troy loves the fact
that I'm built this way, and he
never fails to compliment me or
make me feel sexy.
I am terrified about how he
will react to me during and after
the pregnancy. Troy says he'll
love me just the way I am, no
matter what that is, but 10 min-
utes later he'll make a comment
about how glad he is he didn't
marry a fat woman. I have tried
talking to him about weight
gain during pregnancy. He says
pregnancy is "different," and
I'll lose all the weight after the
baby is born.
We both want children and


can support a child
financially, but I'm
very concerned about
what the pregnancy
could do to our mar-
riage. Have you any
advice? - Baby
Blues in
Charleston, S.C.
Dear Baby Blues:
Your concern is justi-
fied. Your husband's
bias against large


DEAR ABBY
Jeanne Phillips


people has you
between a rock and a
hard place. How nice to hear
that he will love you "just the
way you are, no matter what
that is" - but what if you aren't
able to "lose all the weight"
after the baby is born?
You and your husband
should schedule an appointment
with your 'ob/gyn to discuss
pregnancy and all of its ramifi-
cations, with an emphasis on
the changes it brings about dur-
ing and after gestation. It takes
a man to be a husband and
father - and frankly, it appears
your mate has some growing up
to do before he becomes a
father.
Dear Abby: I am engaged to
a wonderful man, "Evan," who
has two children ages 4 and 6. I


love Evan dearly and
we get along well in
every area except one
- his younger child,
"Melissa." She is
very badly behaved,
and I suspect she has
ADHD - but Evan
and his ex-wife refuse
to take her to a doc-
tor.
After we are mar-
ried, Melissa will be
sharing a bedroom


with my daughter,
"Sasha." Melissa is very
destructive, and I know Sasha
will not be happy when Melissa
trashes her toys and belongings.
The main reason Evan and I
have not gone forward with our
plans is Melissa. I don't know
what to do. I'm losing patience
with my fiance and, his unwill-
ingness to address his daugh-
ter's problems. There are prob-
lems in every situation with
Melissa - home, school, baby
sitters, family functions, out-
ings. I dread taking her any-
where. A 4-year-old is control-
ling my future, Abby. Please
help me. - Stepmom-to-Be in
Illinois
Dear Stepmom-to-Be: One
way to prevent Melissa from


controlling your future is to
take back control for yourself.
The child clearly has issues that
need to be addressed, and your
fiance appears to be stuck in
denial. Think again how this
will affect your daughter if
Melissa doesn't get the help
she's crying out for. If I were in
your shoes, I'd give my fiance
an ultimatum: Have his daugh-
ter medically and psychologi-
cally evaluated, or no wedding.
(In your case that would be a
win-win situation.)

AMD
Continued from 1B
Monitoring vision
Early AMD is sneaky and
can go unnoticed for months,
even years. It can hide behind
cataracts, or be ignored as
"tired eyes," or "old age creep-
ing up." Risk for developing
AMD increases with age,
specifically over age 50.
Dry AMD often affects both
eyes, but may first be diagnosed
in just one eye. About half of
the people with AMD in one
eye will develop it in their other
eye. Over time, dry AMD can
develop into wet AMD in some
patients.
For these reasons, it is impor-
tant to have regular eye exams,,
even if a person doesn't have
any vision changes. Having
regular eye exams helps the
doctor find and treat problems
early, sometimes before they
affect a person's vision. A com-
plete eye exam includes:
* Vision tests using an eye
chart and the Amsler grid, a
special chart designed to detect
macular degeneration;
* Tests of peripheral vision
and color vision;
* An eye pressure test;
M Examination of the front
of the eye and retina, using a
machine called a slit lamp. The
pupils will be dilated (enlarged)


Valerie Moulds at the computer in her examining room at Eye
Specialists of Mid-Florida. Moulds who was born in Sebring,
received her doctor of optometry in 1997 and has been with Eye
Specialists for three years.


for this part of the exam. It is
during this exam that drusen
can be detected, as well as other
significant changes to the reti-
na.
When Moulds discovers
macular degeneration during an
eye examination, she tells her
patient exactly what is going to
occur.
"I am aware that there are
many fears associated with this.
diagnosis, but I don't 'sugar
coat' it. I tell the patient that we
need to start doing everything
we can to slow it down."


She added that most patients
are usually aware that they have
a problem, - "it usually starts
with reading" - but think they
just need new glasses. She
starts them on a program of
vitamins and mineral supple-
ments, recommends changes in
diet and ways of protecting
their eyes from further damage.
"You are not a helpless vic-
tim in this," Moulds empha-
sized. "You have the power to
take an active role in your
health and in your treatment."

More automakers embrace hybrids as gas prices rise


By DEE-ANN DURBIN
APAuto Writer
FRANKFURT, Germany -
After some initial skepticism, the
world's automakers are embrac-
ing hybrid vehicles in an effort to
match Toyota's success and give
customers more options to com-
bat high gas prices.
At the Frankfurt auto show
this week, German automakers
Volkswagen AG, Audi AG and
Porsche AG said they were form-
ing an alliance to develop hybrid
engines. Last week, BMW AG
joined General Motors Corp. and
DaimlerChrysler AG in a similar
partnership.
French automaker PSA
Peugeot-Citroen also wants to
develop hybrid technology and
may join forces with another
company to share costs,
Chairman and Chief Executive
Jean-Martin Folz said.
Audi unveiled the first gas-
electric hybrid vehicle from a
European automaker at the
show, a version of its new Q7
sport-utility vehicle that will go
on sale in 2008.
DaimlerChrysler also said it
will release its first hybrid
Mercedes before the next
Frankfurt auto show, which will
be held in 2007.
Toyota Motor Corp. remains
the runaway leader in the field.
The Japanese company was the
first to begin mass-producing
hybrids with its Prius in 1997.
Toyota sold 53,761 Prius cars in
the United States last year, and
Prius sales were up 133 percent
in the first eight months of this
year, according to the company.


GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz
said that kind of success has
caused other automakers to take
notice. In particular, he said,
some companies that have been
betting on pollution-free hydro-
gen fuel cell vehicles have decid-
ed to produce hybrids in the
near-term, since hydrogen likely
won't be a viable alternative for
another decade.
"I think what happened was
the manifest success of the Prius
caused a rethink on everybody's
part," Lutz said. GM plans to
debut a hybrid system on the
Tahoe and Yukon trucks in 2007.
Companies are developing dif-
ferent kinds of hybrids. But gen-
erally, a hybrid vehicle is pow-
ered either by an electric motor
or by the combustion engine, or
the systems can be used simulta-
neously.
Hybrid engines have been
touted as a way to make automo-
biles more fuel efficient, but at a
cost. Current hybrids tend to
cost between $4,000 and $9,000
more than counterparts with reg-
ular engines under the hood, a
premium that carmakers hope to
reduce through the partnerships.
The fuel savings vary depending
on how the vehicle is driven. The
Prius gets up to 60 miles per gal-
lon in the city and 51 mpg on the
highway, according to the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency.
Despite the success of the
Prius and other hybrid models
from Honda Motor Co. and Ford
Motor Co., hybrids still repre-
sent less than 1 percent of the
U.S. market. Some analysts have

The Toyota Prius was introduced in 1997, making Toyota Motor Corp. the runaway leader in the manufacturing of hybrid vehicles. Other
manufacturers are announcing plans to step up their efforts to produce hybrds in the coming years. Audi plans to have one available in 2008
and Daimler Chrysler has a goal to offer one in 2007.


said that could grow to as much
as 35 percent by 2015, although
others have been more conserva-
tive.
Hybrids have made even less
of a dent in Europe. GM Europe
Chairman Fritz Henderson said
they account for far less than 1
percent of the market. Toyota's
European vice president of mar-
keting, Ludo Vandervelden, said
the company will sell around
10,000 Prius cars in Europe this
year and 4,500 hybrid versions of


the Lexus RX 400h utility vehicle.
European buyers have tradi-
tionally chosen diesel engines,
which can cut fuel costs as much
as some hybrids but emit more
pollutants. They also cost
automakers less than hybrids.
Diesels accounted for 45 per-
cent of the Western European
market in 2004, up from 22 per-
cent 10 years ago, according to
the European Automobile
Manufacturers Association.
But that could change as more


automakers introduce hybrid
technology in the European mar-
ket. Henderson and GM Europe
President Carl-Peter Forster said
customers typically aren't willing
to pay more for hybrid technolo-
gy, so the company is exploring
how to market hybrids in
Europe.
"I think customers, as they
learn more about hybrids, are
going to want them," Henderson
said.
Vandervelden said that's good


news for hybrid proponents.
'Today in Frankfurt all the
Germans admit they missed the
train. For us, this is very satisfy-
ing," Vandervelden said. "It gives
an enormous boost to the credi-
bility of this technology."

hoping for rusty. They have speed
and they have size.To me, they're a
combination of Okeechobee and Fort
Meade.They've got the sWeed of Fort
Meade. but the size ol Okeechobee.
They're going to have to contend
with our speed.They dropped like
five touchdown passes last year, but

Lady Streaks


bomb Booker
By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING - The Lady Streaks' vol-
leyball team dominated district rival
Sarasota Booker Thursday night with a
three-game sweep of 25-7, 25-17 and
25-9.
Sebring improved their record to 6-3
overall and 6-1 in the district. Sarasota
Booker fell to 5-5 and 5-3 in the district.
"It has been a 180-degree turnaround
since Monday night (loss at Lake
Placid)," Sebring coach Venessa Sinness
said. "We stepped it up and it took a lot
of guts and pride.
"We did a good job serving and we
were very dominating at the net. Rachel
Ashley and Katlin Hamlin played very
well tonight. Lindsay Espaillat really
mixed up her sets a lot."
Sebring rolled in the first game as
they piled up a 16-4 lead. Whitney Lee
had seven straight service points and
Hamlin had six service points to go
along with three aces to propel the team.
Selma Younes also provided good
serving and Amber Foster had some key
hits as Sebring led 23-7. Ashley had a
strong hit for a 24-7 lead and Sarasota
was called for an illegal hit on the next
serve to end the game at 25-7.

GAINESVILLE - C.J. Leak
doesn't have a defined role at
Florida. It's not too different
from his three years at
Tennessee.
Leak, the older brother of
Gators quarterback Chris Leak,
was hired during the offseason
to work as an assistant in
Florida's football offices. He
does whatever the coaches ask:


makes copies, handles mail,
runs errands.
He also helps out during
practices and games.
Although he was never a fac-
tor in previous Tennessee-
Florida games - switching
from quarterback to tight end to
safety and never securing a
starting job - he could be this
time around.
Tennessee coach Phillip
Fulmer is so concerned that


Leak is passing along inside
information that he has altered
his play-calling routines for
Saturday's game between the
No' 5 Volunteers and the sixth-
ranked Gators.
"C.J., I'Tmsure knows a lot
about our offense and our sig-
nals and our system and how
we go about things and it's cer-
tainly something that we will
have to address," Fulmer said.

LAKE PLACID - History
lasts forever, but Lake Placid
learned you can't celebrate it
nearly as long.
Three days after an emo-
tional five-set match that rep-
resented the Lady Dragons'
first-ever victory over
Sebring, Lake Placid fell flat
against foe Frostproof, which
scored a 21-25, 25-22, 25-19,
25-23 win on the road
Thursday night.
"As good as that win
against Sebring felt, this one
was even more important,"
Lake Placid head coach
Marilyn Jones said, pointing
to the fact it was, unlike
Monday's game, a District 10-
3A clash.
Despite crisp execution in
the first game, including four
assists and a block from setter
Jackie Berard, the Lady
Dragons (4-3, 1-2) failed to
keep up their sharp play, and
squandered an 11-5 lead in the
final game.
"There wasn't a whole lot
of communication ... we did-
n't get our passes," Jones said,
adding that she was looking
for more out her team's
serves, too.
Yet Frostproof head coach
Mary E. Spurlock could not
have wanted more from her
servers. Kali Behrens racked
up 10 aces to go along with
four kills. and four blocks.
. ,"I have four girl . hji are
.- good ace. servers, Spurlock
said. "They've been off a little
bit lately, but (Behrens) hit it
tonight."
Spurlock also pointed to


that .... It really can be a distrac-
tion if you're not careful
because you end up trying to
figure out what the other guy is
doing and, forget about what
you're doing.
"I'm sure he has every note
that was taken, but it gets back
to the players on the field being
able to get it done."
Leak joined the Gators partly
to be closer to his brother, but
mostly to begin a career as a

the play of Faith Franklin,
whose sister, Hope, had
injured an ankle in practice on
Wednesday.
"They played for their
teammate, and they played for
themselves," the coach said of
her team. "That's what I kept
telling them all game - have
heart."
The Lady Bulldogs (6-2, 1-
2) had their heart as well as
aid from the scorekeepers in
the final game. One of Lake
Placid's points was never
recorded, and when the Lady
Dragons should have held a
24-23 lead, the scoreboard
showed the game tied 23-23
instead.
Erica Straub then served
out the match, with an ace on
the final point, to seal victory
for Frostproof.
Even -so, Jones said the
events of Thursday will nei-
ther cloud what happened. on,.

Cooper leads Red

Devils over Mulberry
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - After a slew of offensive
misteps that that produced two lost fumbles in
the first two drives for the Devils, visiting
Mulberry couldn't keep the home team off the
scoreboard.
And the Devils have Virgil Cooper to thank.
The sophomore back broke the trend on Avon
Park's third drive, breaking through with an
18-yard touchdown scamper. On a sweep to the
right, Cooper flew past eight of the - anther
defenders and plowed through the other three
at the goal line to give the game its first points.
It was simply a symbol of what was to come as
Cooper put up two more scores on 118 yards to
plow past Mulberry 34-12 at Joe Franza
Stadium.
"We can't say enough about (Cooper),"
Avon Park coach Gary Dressel said. "I think
they may steal him away from us on varsity,
though."
Avon Park's defense was possibly more
impressive than its counterparts, accounting
for three sacks, two fumble recoveries and an
interception while holding the Panthers to only
170 yards of offense. The key was condition-
ing, said Dressel, and it proved true when the
Devils (2-1) held Panther running back Stanley
Burch to minus-13 yards on the ground in the
second half.

then-coach Steve Spurrier to
close practice for good in the
- mid-4990s,
Maybe new coach Urban
Meyer hired Leak to be a spy.
"Is that the reason he's
here?" Meyer said. "Sure. No,
the reason he's here is he's a
high-character, high-quality
person and I kind of like those
guys in the coaching profes-
sion. The profession needs peo-
ple like that."
But like any coach, Meyer
hasn't wasted an opportunity to
glean inside information. He
acknowledged as much this
week.
"We're asking him-about per-
sonnel and he's helped us,"
Meyer said. "Schematically,
there isn't a whole lot he can
share with us. The biggest thing
- is personnel."
Leak declined interview
requests, not wanting to be a
distraction before a game that
typically plays a pivotal role in
determining the Southeastern
Conference Eastern Division
champion.
But he may have already
done that.
Because of his presence on
Florida's sideline, Fulmer said
he will have two or three differ-
ent guys signaling in plays at
the same time to cause confu-
sion if the Gators try to steal
signs.
"You've got to be aware of
that," Fulmer said. "It's not
something we're going to
worry too much about, but it's
something that we're certainly
conscious of and have made
adjustments to since we've
gone through two-a-days

Leak began his collegiate
career at Wake Forest, then
transferred to Tennessee after a
severe knee injury in 2000.
Even when he was healthy,
he rarely played because he was
behind Casey Clausen. When
Clausen was hurt in 2002, Leak
got a chance to start against
Georgia. But he was replaced
after two series.
The benching affected Chris
Leak, too.
Chris had dreamed of follow-
ing C.J. to Tennessee. but he
lost interest in the Vols after
that Georgia game, writing in
an online diary that he couldn't
trust the coaches there because
"Fulmer never gave C.J. the
opportunity he promised him
when he transferred to
Tefinessee - a legitimate
chance to start."
Leak had a final chance to
start when Clausen graduated
before last season. But fresh-
men Brent Schaeffer and Erik
Ainge quickly moved ahead of
Leak on the depth chart.
Now Leak has his best shot at
affecting the Tennessee-Florida
game.

Pivotal weekend for Sunshine State powers


By RALPH D. RUSSO
Associated Press
The state of football in
Florida will become much
clearer Saturday.
Florida, Florida State and
Miami each play pivotal confer-
ence games against nationally
ranked opponents. Last season,
for the first time since 1982, no
team from the Sunshine State
finished ranked among the
nation's top five. The Gators,
Seminoles and Hurricanes are
all back in the top 15, with a
chance to show they deserve to
be there this week.
The sixth-ranked Gators,
with new coach Urban Meyer,
open their Southeastern
Conference season against No.
5 Tennessee. No. 8 Florida
State faces No. 17 Boston
College, welcoming the Eagles
to the Atlantic Coast
Conference. No. 13 Miami is at
No. 20 Clemson, where coach
Tommy Bowden has the Tigers
off to a 2-0 start.
The Volunteers have won
three of four against Florida in a
series that consistently has gone
a long way toward determining
the SEC East race since the
league split into two divisions
in 1992.
The Vols had a week off to
prepare for Meyer's spread-
option offense, directed by
quarterback Chris Leak. The
Vols opened the season with a
lackluster 17-10 win over UAB,
which prompted a switch at
quarterback. Senior Rick
Clausen gets the start over her-
alded sophomore Erik Ainge.
Florida State and Miami
opened the season against each
other on Labor Day with a 10-7
Seminoles' victory that didn't
do much for the image of either
team.
Florida State's redshirt fresh-
man quarterback, Drew
Weatherford, followed up his
awful first start against the
Hurricanes with a big game in a
62-10 win over The Citadel, as
expected. Weatherford' passed
for 342 yards and two touch-


downs against the Bulldogs, but
how much will that matter
against a solid BC team?
The Hurricanes lost to the
Tigers at home in overtime last
season and can't afford to dig
themselves into an 0-2 hole
with Virginia Tech also in the
Coastal Division.
Miami's first-year starting
quarterback, Kyle Wright,
showed some positive signs in
the loss to Florida State. Wright
was 16-for-28 for 232 yards
against the Seminoles, but the
'Canes will likely need far more
points against Charlie
Whitehurst and the Tigers.

Why isn't NCAA going


after athletic 'looters'?


Some people have funny
ways of helping out.
In the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina, the NCAA
took a backseat to no one in its
efforts to help student-athletes
retain some semblance of nor-
malcy. The agency relaxed its
"extra-benefit" rules so
ballplayers who lost everything
could accept money and meals
from just about anyone -,
including, get this: boosters!
- without documenting every
donation in triplicate.
Those who don't have class-
es to attend were assured they
could continue to play, and
even those who attend classes
at a new school can continue
to play for their original one. A
quick visit to the NCAA's Web
site turned up nearly a dozen
instances where rules covering
financial aid, benefits and eli-
gibility, recruiting and person-
nel, and playing and practice
seasons have been eased so
schools in New Orleans and
across the Gulf Coast crippled
by the storm can continue to
put teams on the field.
It was, as athletes them-
selves like to say, 'tall good."
Or at least it seemed that
way until NCAA chief Myles
Brand told an audience in
Rhode Island on Tuesday that
one rule would not be bent.
That was the one requiring
Division I basketball, football
and hockey players to sit out
one year if they transfer to
another Division I school.
"I'm really surprised there's
any objection," Brand said
Thursday during a telephone
interview while on a break
from meetings. "We had sever-
al stories about trying to steal
stars from schools, and in one
instance - it may be apoc-
ryphal - trying to steal an
entire team.
"To me, that's like kicking
somebody when they're
already down - twice.
Besides," he added, "we're
going to be very flexible in
cases where there are special
circumstances."
Exactly how flexible,
though, will determine whether
the NCAA's decision to stand
firm on one rule while playing
fast and loose with so many
others was a wise choice. And
this much is true either way: A
man in Brand's job should
always choose his words care-
fully. ,
What he said to his audience
about poaching on Tuesday
was this: "Let me call that ath-
letic looting, to be provoca-
tive," said Brand, no stranger
to provocation, since he used
to be Bobby Knight's boss at'
Indiana, "and we won't stand
for that."
And just like that, all the
goodwill flowing to the NCAA
for its sensible, compassionate
response weeks earlier, dried
up.
On its face, Brand's decision
seemed not just wrong-headed,
but greedy. It makes infinitely
more sense, after all, to go
after the coaches trying to steal
players and punish them -
there are already rules on the
NCAA books covering that sit-
uation - instead of going after
players who legitimately seek
transfers to be close to home,
or those few who actually take
the student-athlete paradigm
seriously.
But worse than that was the
appearance that the NCAA was
looking out for itself by mak-
ing sure its two big money-
making sports, basketball and
football, suffered as few dis-
ruptions as possible.
Division I athletes in every
other sport, after, all, will still
be allowed to transfer into
another Division I program
and play immediately. All they
need is a release from their
original school. And consider-
ing how little revenue is at
stake in college golf, tennis,
gymnastics, lacrosse, and so
forth, few requests for a
release go begging for a signa-
ture.
Even worse, perhaps, is that
any of those coaches who


might be poaching are free to
skip out on their contract at
one school, no matter how

many years are left on the deal,
and sign a new one at another
school without missing a beat.
"I don't like that, either,"
Brand said, "but it's a different
situation and something we
can talk about at the proper
time and place. There are rules
covering both situations, and
whether justified or not, we
have to address things accord-
ing to their priority, and
'poaching' .is an immediate
threat.
"So let me say it again," he
said. "There's no question
we're prepared to be flexible
in individual cases and grant
waivers."
Here's hoping the NCAA
does a better job of picking its
way through this mess than it
did just six weeks ago, when
the agency put 18 schools on
notice that it would bar any
athletic program with an
American Indian nickname or
logo considered racially or eth-
nically "hostile" or "abusive"
from using them in postseason
events.
The NCAA is still digging
out from the heap of scorn that
one inspired, and under threat
of lawsuits, it has been hand-
ing out waivers ever since. For
all the sensible things the
agency has already done, (and
would like to do as the after-
shock from Hurricane Katrina
spreads across the sports land-
scape, it's worth remembering
that plenty of roads are littered
with good intentions.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
The Streaks jumped out to a 9-0 lead in game
two behind the serves of Espaillat, who smashed
three aces during the rally. The Tornados still
managed a surprise for the home team, using a
couple of aces of their own and a tap at the net to
eventually cut the lead to 14-11. Sebring earned a
sideout but Sarasota fought right back and used
an ace and big hit to cut the lead to 15-14.
Fortunately for Sebring, a sideout gave the
serve back to Espaillat. She soon had seven
straight service points and a big block from
Hamlin gave the Streaks a 23-15 lead. Jessica

And these guys are in better

After Cooper's run put Avon

zone until the second. By then,

Armstrong


says he'll


stay retired

Blames 'witch hunt'
in French media

By JIM LITKE
Associated Press
The nasty tug of war
between the bosses of the inter-
national cycling union and the
World Anti-Doping Agency
over who leaked documents to
a French newspaper accusing
Lance Armstrong of doping
claimed its first casualty
Thursday: any chance of a
comeback by the seven-time
Tour de France champion.
Armstrong, who said just
days ago that this latest fight to
clear his name had stoked his
competitive desires, made clear
Thursday he wasn't interested
in returning to the sport he
dominated.
"Sitting here today, dealing
with all this stuff again, know-
ing if I were to go back, there's
no way I could get a fair shake
- on the roadside, in doping
control, or the labs," Armstrong
said on a late-afternoon confer-
ence call.
"I think it's better that way,"
he added a moment later. "I'm
happy with the way my career
went and ended and I'm not
coming back."
c Armstrong and his handlers
spent most of the remaining 45
minutes with reporters criticiz-
ing WADA chief Dick Pound.
It was Pound who set off anoth-
er round of charges and count-
er-charges in the doping con-
troversy earlier Thursday by
accusing cycling union boss
Hein Verbruggen of supplying
documents used by L'Equipe,
France's leading sports daily, to
charge that Armstrong used the
blood-boosting drug EPO dur-
ing his first tour win in 1999.
Armstrong, who has repeat-
edly denied ever using banned
drugs, said he was the victim of
a "witch hunt" after the report
came out last month.
