AN AMERICAN EPIDEMICf


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING
There is a silent epidemic that kills
nearly 32,000 people in the
United States each year.
The culprit is suicide.
On Aug. 2, Charles E. Snelgrove, 76
of Sebring, drove to Lakeview
Memorial Gardens to visit the grave of
his wife, Phyllis.
Snelgrove had visited at least three
times a week since her death a year ear-
lier.
This trip was different though. This
time he had decided to end his own life.
Snelgrove committed suicide with a
single gunshot to the head.
His son, Charles "Butch" Snelgrove
Jr. was not quite surprised when his
father was found.
"He had talked about it in the past,"
the junior Snelgrove said. "I knew if he
ever did it we would find him there,
with Mom."
The factors behind suicidesand sui-,
cide attempts are numerous.
According to the Center for Disease
Control, risk factors may include a his-
tory of mental disorders, particularly
depression, alcohol and substance
abuse, a family history of suicide, phys-


ical and mental abuse, the loss
of a loved one, and physical
illness.
There are many reasons
believed to have con-
tributed in Snelgrove's
death, among them the loss
of his wife of 56 years.
"Since Mom died, all the life
had gone out of him," Snelgrove
Jr. said. "His disposition changed; he
missed her veny much."
Another factor was Snelgrove's fail-
ing health.
Snelgrove, who suffered from
Parkinson's disease, had recently sus-
tained a detached retina that left him
blind in his right eye.
Snelgrove Jr. feels that it was this
loss of sight coupled with the fear of
becoming a burden to his family that
lead his father to take his owii life.
"Dad didn't want to become a burden
to anyone," he said. "We told him over
and over he wasn't, but he still felt that
way."
Suicides like Charles Snelgrove's
occur at an alarming rate.
In 2004, there were 11 suicide deaths
in Highlands County. There is no way
to track the number of failed attempts.
The suicide rate increases with age


Graphic by ARI SALGUEIRO/News-Sun


and is considerably higher among those
65 years and older. Older adults who
are suicidal are also more likely to be
suffering from physical illnesses and
are usually divorced or widowed.
According to the CDC, in 2001,
5,393 Americans over the age of 65
committed suicide. Of that number, 85
percent were men and 15 percent were
women.
Firearms were used in 73 percent of
suicides committed by adults over the
age of 65 in 2001.
Suicide is a problem that occurs
among men and women of all ages, eth-
nic backgrounds and religious beliefs.
Suicide is the eighth leading cause of
death for all men in the United States.
While women report attempting sui-


cide during their lifetime, about three
times as often as men, males are four
times more likely to die from suicide.
This may be because of the 24,672
suicide deaths reported among men in
2001, 60 percent involved the use of a
firearm.
While 32,000 suicide deaths may
seem small compared to the millions of
United States citizens, the larger prob-
lem certainly appears when you look at
the number of attempts.
According to the CDC, in 2002,
132,353 people were hospitalized fol-
lowing suicide attempts, an additional
116,639 were treated in hospital emer-
gency rooms and released.
These releases without a psychiatric

Monday hearing set for deputy's testimony


* Validity of evidence, 11A
By PHIL ATl1NGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Before the
Avon Park bank robbery trial;
can start Monday, circuit court
will hold a hearing on law
enforcement testimony.
Two defense attorneys have
asked to strike Deputy Sheriff
Kris Ahler's statements from
the trial record if the hearing
shows he actually discussed tes-
timony with any other deputy
on Thursday before testifying.
They also would like to


exclude a silver-finish Ruger
handgun, reportedly taken off
one of the defendants during his
arrest on Jan 7 in Lake Placid.
Ahler was the arresting officer.
A defendant's relative and
one of the bailiffs believe they
witnessed either Ahler reading
another deputy's report on the
case or deputies talking about
their testimony while waiting in
the courthouse second floor
atrium.
When asked about the matter
Thursday, both Ahler and the
other deputies said nothing


Jump For The Cure


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Mike Dochterman, of Merritt Island, lights'himself on fire with
gasoline and prepares to 'Jump For The Cure' on Saturday after-
noon at Wells Motor Company in Avon Park. 'It went really well,'
Dochterman said after he jumped 30 feet into a shallow pool of
water to help raise money for local cancer research. Dochterman lost
his wife to an aggressive form of cancer and now dedicates much of
his time to raise awareness and money. Wells Motor Company is
donating $100 for every vehicle sold through next Saturday to the
American Cancer Society in Highlands County.

Circuit Judge Olin
Shinholser had the court
reporter type transcripts of that
afternoon's testimony and dis-
tribute them to attorneys Friday
morning. Over the weekend,
they will have a chance to
review the record, and may
make motions on Monday.
Shinholser agreed with attor-
neys that they may make any
motions they wish, including a
motion for mistrial at any time
- even before sentencing.
Attorneys have said they


don't intend to do that, but it is
an option.
Shinholser also has asked
commanding officers from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office and the Avon Park Police
Department be present for
Monday morning's hearing.
"The rule of sequestration is
involved and I take it serious-
ly," Shinholser said, adding
later that officers "are not to
talk or joke about this case."
If they need a report, they
should go to the sheriff's cen-
tral records office, not to fellow


offices, he said.
Sheriff's counsel Mike
Durham was in court Friday
morning along with Capt. Mark
Schrader, commander of road
patrol, and Lt. Gus Garcia, head
of sheriff's internal investiga-
tions. Durham said he, like the
attorneys, would review the
matter.
In a statement issued Friday
afternoon, Sheriff Susan Benton

Gujarat health care center


bears Highlands County name


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun
SEBRING - Thanks most-
ly to the $40,000 Highlands
County residents sent to the
state of Gujarat, India, on
March 3, a large plaque greet-
ed the first patients to
Gujarat's new health care cen-
ter.
. Cemented into the exterior
wall next to the main entrance
the plaque reads, "Shri Shrima
Anandamayi & Sebring
Highlands County Florida
U.S.A Health Care Center,
Dedadra, Gujarat."
A native of Gujarat State,
obstetrician and gynecologist,
Dr. D.M. Upadhyaya,
expressed his gratitude recent-
ly following the outpouring of
financial support for the new
health care facility that will
serve the medical needs of
more than 50,000 people.
When the dust had settled
that unforgettable morning of
Jan. 26, 2001, more than
20,000 people were dead and
another 1.6 million were
injured because of an earth-
quake.
A message from India's


Prime Minister Jai Hind sent
around the world a plea for
help following what Hind
called "the worst earthquake
independent India has seen."
In his mes-
sage, Hind
added, "We
cannot leave




vagaries of nature. At this
moment, they need our help,
to tide over the calamity that
has fallen upon them, to sur-
vive, and to rebuild their lives
as best they can. At this
About 8,000 miles away,
news of the devastating quake
and the prime minister's plea
shook Upadhyaya to the core.
And while sympathetic gov-
ernments from around the
world rushed to help quake
survivors, several Highlands
County area physicians with
rodts in Gujarat held a meeting
and launched a fund-raising
crusade to build the health
care center.
S"We asked the community


of Highlands County -
Sebring, Lake Placid and Avon
Park - to pitch in," Upadhyaya
recalled.
As more and more people
learned of the plan to build the
health center, many made
financial sacrifices. He will
never forget the man who gave
$25 from his savings account
and said, "I hope it will help."
The 8-year-old son of a
local merchant rode his bicy-
cle tirelessly asking people to
help in the grassroots fund-
raiser.
Spreading out on his desk
the center's blueprint recently,
Upadhyaya described it as a
"mini-hospital," and pointed
out the services the new facili-
ty offers: an office for physi-
cians, doctor and staff quar-
ters, medicine dispensary,
waiting room, examination
room, family planning, deliv-
ery room, women's ward, gen-
eral ward, and laboratory.
Upadhyaya said now that
the center is serving Gujarat
residents it is time to thank all
the people who did their part
to offer these earthquake sur-
vivors a healthier future.

Highlands schools help with hurricane relief


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
Some people gave because
they remembered. Some people
gave to give back.
Whatever the reason, people
have been giving to Hurricane
Katrina relief with a generosity
never seen before.
The efforts of Highlands
County schools only mirror
those of countless organiza-
tions.
Two FFA chapters simultane-
ously started semitrailer drives,
which combined into a single
operation.
Avon Park and Hill-Gustat
middle schools lead the highly
successful FFA drive to collect
baby and general items needed
in the stricken area.
The FFA chapter at Forest
County Agricultural High
School in Brooklyn, Miss. will
distribute the aid in an area not
far from Gulfport, Miss.
By Friday one semitrailer
had'already been delivered, and
a second was in the final load-
ing phase.
The state and national
branches of the FFA,- have
picked up on this idea, and
other similar drives are in
progress around the nation.
All seven FFA chapters took
part in the drive, as did elemen-
tary schools in Highlands
County.
Pickups collected donations
at each school, which were then
brought to a central location.
Every school reported filling at
least two pickups.


"Students were bringing in
bags bigger than they were,"
said Ruby Handley, principal at
Fred Wild Elementary in
Sebring.
At Cracker Trail Elementary
in Sebring, the small confer-
ence room used to store donated
canned goods filled waist high,
and no one could get into it.
In addition to filling semi-
trailers, many schools also
raised money.
At Avon Elementary in Avon
Park, they were still waiting for
the count, but students, faculty,
staff and parents have managed
to fill a gallon jar and large
popcorn tin full of change and
bills.
At Avon Park High School
the junior class donated $100
out of its prom budget, and led
a four-day "Give up a Coke"
drive. Including teacher dona-
tions, and $1,000 from the Air
Force Junior Reserve Officers'
Training Corps, the school
raised $3,903.02.
This was matched by the
Lowe's store in Winter Haven.
That means the high school
raised $7,606.04, which will be
donated to the American Red
Cross, Katrina Relief Fund.
At Sebring High School, the
entire student body chipped in,
raising $2,000 in a single day
with a "give and care" cam-
paign.
The school raised $2,445.83
altogether.
Sun 'N Lakes Elementary in
Sebring was still counting
donations, but school adminis-


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Hill-Gustat Middle School students form an assembly line Wednesday morning and load supplies onto a
tractor-trailer in Sebring. Hill-Gustat Middle School teacher Rebekah Stephens and her students organ-
ized the effort to help provide relief for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The truck left Wednesday and is
headed to Brooklyn, Miss., which is just north of Gulfport. Hicks Oil donated fuel for the trip. According
" to Stephens, the school is hoping to collect enough stuff for another truck load. Donations are being
accepted in the school office until next Friday.


trators think the combined total
of items and dollars is pretty
close to $3,000.
At Lake Placid High School
the student government, Key
Club and band led fund-raising
drives which raised $1,206.
That sum was matched by an
individual donor, so the school
was able to give $2,412 to The
Salvation Army.

Fire not only woe for Sebring man


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Fire consumed
Ron Willett's home, but it is
what the fire didn't take that
now concerns him.
On July 27, Willett and his
wife, Glenna Willett, were in
Canada awaiting her release
from the hospital after battling
lung cancer and leukemia.:
While there, they received
.tlie'all that their home, located
at 3626 Hoyt Ave. in Sebring,
had been destroyed in a fire.
After Glenna Willett was
released from the hospital they
rushed to Sebring to assess the
damage. This proved to much
for her, and she was hospital-
ized yet again.
When it was determined safe
for her to travel she returned to
Canada to be near her family.
Ron Willett was then hospi-
talized for low blood sugar and
heart related difficulties. It was
on the day of his release from
the hospital that he received

word that his wife had passed
away in Canada.
With no money for travel,'
Ron Willett was forced to miss
the funeral.
"It has been very difficult,"
he said.
After the loss of his home
and wife, Willett decide to sift
through 'the remains and see
what was left. That's when,he
discovered many things where
missing.
An remote airplane enthusi-
ast, he had noticed several
planes and other items that
would not have been complete-
ly destroyed in the fire were
missing.
"I had boxes of balsa wood
that didn't burn," he said.
"These planes definitely would
have left something behind."
This is when Willett decided
to conduct an investigation of
his own.
In addition to the planes, he
found many other missing
items: a television with DVD

and VCR included, microwave,
computer, airplane components,
several boxes of radio
receivers, serves, hardware,
controllers and many tools.
"There are 12 model aircraft
not accounted for," Willett said.
"Many of them were very large,
they would be hard to hide."
Willett estimates the thieves
got away with items worth
approximately $65,000.
Willett is selling his last pos-
session, a tow truck, in order to
earn the $5,000 reward he is
offering.for information leading
to the arrest of those responsi-
ble for the theft and fire.
So far, Willett's only lead is
the report of a neighbor who
said they had heard a large
truck and people running
around at the time of the fire.
Anyone with information
concerning this incident may
contact the Highlands County
Sheriff's office at 402-7200.
Willett may be contacted at
214-4552.or 471-1861.


Society raised $1,000 which
they gave to a Lake Placid grad-
uate who lost his home in 12
feet ol water.
Some schools still have
drives under way, or plan future
events.
Lake Country Elementary in
Lake Placid has several projects
in the works for the next nine
weeks, starting with a snow
cone drive.
Woodlawn Elementary in
Sebring has planned a bake sale
to raise money for the Red
Cross. It will be from 9 a.m.
until sold out Saturday in
Lakeshore Mall by the entrance
to Kmart in Sebring.
Private school students are
also contributing.
Walker Memorial Academy
in Avon Park sent a group of 22


10th-grade students and six
adults to Hattiesburg, Miss. to
work' on some construction of a
Seventh-day Adventist School
there. The kids also collected
food and materials locally to
distribute to the victims in that
city and helped serve meals.
Youth Pastor Tom Baker and
School Chaplain Tom Hayes
headed up the effort for Walker.
The group left Sept. 10 and just
returned Friday after working in
that area for one week.
At the Kenilworth School in
Sebring, students have raised
$1,260.96 collecting change.
Lake Placid Christian School
is preparing plans for a fund
raiser. They hope to help a
Georgia pastor who is working
relief in Mississippi.

Disability Mentoring Day set for Oct. 19


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Neus-Sun
AVON PARK - Friday
afternoon Ridge Area Arc
administrators played host to
representatives from some' of
the area's largest employers and
employment specialists.
The agency's goal was to
raise awareness about National
Disability Employment Month,
which is October.
People with disabilities can
make excellent workers, said
Cameron Barnard, Ridge Area
Arc employment services man-
ager. "Focus on what they can
do, not on what they can't," she
suggested.
Surveys have shown that
workers with disabilities have
fewer accidents, and better
attendance records, than the
population as a whole.
According to information
published by The Able Trust, an
organizer of the event, more
than 3 million people with dis-
abilities live in Florida, but only
58 percent are employed.
The key is matching the job
to the individual. Barnard said
employers are only limited by
their imaginations.
In an effort to build opportu-
nities and to educate - both
those people looking for work
and the potential employers
who would hire them - a spe-
cial day has been planned.
Oct. 19 has been named
Disability Mentoring Day.
The kick-off for the national
program in Florida will be host-
ed by Governor Jeb Bush.









Darrell Chaney
Darrell J. Chaney, 49, of
Carrollton, Ga., died Sept. 9,
2005, in Carrollton, Ga. He was
killed in a car accident in
Georgia.
Born in Pompano Beach, he
had been a resident of
Carrollton, Ga., coming from
Avon park. He was a clerk at a
retail store.
Survivors include his broth-
ers, Gerald Chaney and larry
Brown, both of Avon Park; Royce
Chaney of Haines City, Wendal
Brown, Bryon Brown and
Garland Brown, all of Carrollton,
Ga.; and sisters Joyce Hart of
Sebring and Reba Bennett of
Roswell, Ga.
A graveside memorial service
will be at 11 a.m. Monday at
Bougainvillea Cemetery in Avon
Park.
Arrangements are being han-
dled by Stephenson-Nelson
Funeral Home, Avon Park.


By meeting people with dis-
abilities, potential employers
may correct misconceptions.
Ridge Area Arc is a liaison
with Highlands County for
Mentoring Day.
Any business or organization
which is interested in opening
its doors to a person with dis-
abilities on Oct. 19, can call
Barnard at 452-1295, ext. 116.
For more information regard-
ing Disability Mentoring Day
go to www.floridadmd.org.
Applications for the program
should be delivered to Arc by
this Friday.

Flash from the Past


News-Sun archives
This photograph was published in the July 3, 1975, edition of 'The Sebring News.' The caption
read: Sebring area service stations were flipping the price signs on gas tanks this week as hikes of
two to five cents per gallon were posted by various brands. The maverick was the South. U.S.
Horne's Gulf, which has been offering 52 cent gas for several weeks and at press time hadn't
received word to up it yet. Other prices for regular ranged from 54.9 cents per gallon at Sunoco,
55.9 at Phillips 66, to 57.9 at a Southgate Gulf station. Like one of the old cigarette commercials
used to say, You've come a long way baby. The 'News-Sun' has been publishing news about
Highlands County since 1927.,As a treat for our readers, we have gone through our archives and
pulled some stories from previous issues that we will share on future Sundays. Hope you enjoyed
this 'Flash from the Past.'


Students learn importance of


Constitution on special day


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
AVON PARK - There are
few documents that speak to the
hearts of the American people
as the United States
Constitution does.
Two hundred and eighteen
years ago, on Sept. 17, 1787,
delegates to the Constitutional
Convention held their final
meeting and signed the
Constitution.
President George W. Bush
signed into law on Dec. 8,
2004, Public Law 108-447,
which established Sept. 17 as
Constitution Day.
This mandate requires that
all public educational institu-
tions receiving federal funding
sponsor events that further the
understanding of the
Constitution.
The preamble states, "We the
people of the United States, in
order to form a more perfect
union, establish justice,-insure
domestic tranquility, provide
for the common defense, pro-
mote the general welfare, and
secure the blessings of liberty to
ourselves and our posterity, do
ordain and establish this


Constitution for the United
States of America."
On Sept. 20, Avon Park High
School will show a video
approximately 17 minutes in
length highlighting the
Constitution and what it means
for U.S. citizens.
Avon Park High School
Assistant Principal Carol
Revels stands behind the
importance of educating stu-
dents on the Constitution.
"The Constitution is very
important," Revels said.
"Students need to be familiar
with the document."
After the showing of the
video some teachers will con-
tinue to expand upon the topics
discussed.
"The Web Design class will
be putting information on the
Web page, the ROTC class will
be taught more on the
Constitution and many the
social studies teachers will go
into more detail with their
classes," Revels said.
The Constitution represents
one of the greatest gestures of
statesmanship and compromise
ever committed to paper.


Nationwide, millions of stu-
dents will study the
Constitution as the document
that is known as the supreme
law of the land, the center of the
country's democracy, its way of
life and its political debate.
Florida Secretary of State
Glenda E. Hood stands behind
the meaning of this day of cele-
bration and encourages citizens
to take it one step further.
"In the spirit of reverence
and reflection this Constitution
day, I encourage all citizens and
students to visit the State
Library and Archives of Florida
and browse the many pieces of
history housed within the R.A.
Gray Building that illustrate
Florida's Constitutional
Legacy," Hood said.'"As citi-
zens it is our responsibility to
remember and share our histor-
ical roots."
* Because Constitution Day
falls on a Saturday, schools can
pick other days to celebrate.
While Friday emerged as the
most popular choice, many
schools will fulfill the
Constitution study requirement
next week.

Jackson was instrumental in
preparing the articles of incor-
poration.
More important, Saffold said,
is the promise of future cooper-
ation.
Saffold began to rebuild the
organization two years ago, out
of the remnants of an earlier
association. He had a mission to
bring the subdivisions of the
Washington Heights communi-
ty together.
In the countless meetings that
followed, common concerns
became evident.
Absentee landlords, for
example, have put a tremen-
dous pressure on the conmmuni-
ty, Saffold said.
Too often, property is neg-
lected, and absentee landlords
have no real stake in the com-
munity. Getting them to partici-
pate is almost impossible, he
added.
Problems of crumbling infra-
structure, or the lack of it alto-
gether, also concerned the resi-

A fund-raiser is being
planned, as is a special event,

community involvement are all
parts of the long-term solution,
Saffold said, and added that the
community is aware some prob-
lems will take longer to fix than
others.
Jackson admires that
patience and persistence. "I
encouraged them to organize,"
he said. "They can be so much
more effective now.
"I was really impressed that
they got nine incorporating offi-


cers, one from each subdivi-
sion. That's a step in the right
direction.
"(In) Working with govern-
ment, patience is a real virtue.
They have that, and also persist-
ence, that's a good sign."
Saffold himself looks beyond
neighborhood restoration. He
sees a larger problem.
"If we're going to change,"
he said, "it has to be economic,
as well as physical.
"Jim Polatty and Carl Cool
each have several (black) staff
members, but I didn't see any in
the elections office, or the tax
appraiser's office, and I've only
seen one in the clerk of the

"Now there may be workers I
haven't seen. I'm only saying,
there aren't many.
"We need more opportuni-
ties, and in places where kids in
school can see it and hope.
"When you don't hire the
kids you've trained in your

doesn't look far to find new hand


New barn manager
Joy Ongley was
already a volunteer
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK -'When you
find a good volunteer, its a good
idea to keep them.
That's what the Heartland
Horses & Handicapped board
decided to do with Joy Ongley,
the new barn manager. Ongley
started helping the therapeutic
riding program in May, and her
experience with horses made
her invaluable.
So, the board decided to hire
her.
Sandy Kuhn, executive
director, said Ongley did an
excellent job helping with sum-
mer camp and has been there
ever since.
"She's a worker," Kuhn-said.
"She gets in there and does the
job."
Ongley spends 20 hours each
week managing the barn and
equipment, as well as feeding
and exercising the horses,
bathing them, and taking care
of medical needs.
"That keeps her plenty busy,"
Kuhn said.
If the program needs any-
thing, its more volunteers,
Kuhn said.
Heartland Horses &
Handicapped offers a free ther-
apy program for physically,
mentally or developmentally
handicapped individuals.
Ongley said they still need peo-
ple to help with those sessions
this fall, either leading the horse
or walking alongside to steady
the riders.
Since Ongley lives on Lake

Kid's Day promotes heart health


By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
SEBRING - Children are
doing their part to keep
Highlands County healthy.
The Florida Hospital
Heartland Division, in
Cooperation with the Highlands
County Art League,
McDonald's and Toys-R-Us,
will be having a "Kid's Day" to
get children involved in the
"Running for a Happy Heart"
program.
The event will be held at the
art league's "Yellow House"
from 2-4 p.m. today.
Jeffrey from Toys-R-Us and
Ronald McDonald will be at the
event, which will showcase
dance group performances, a
performance by the Junior
Heartland Idols, and games to
promote a healthy heart.
The main focus of the "Kid's
Day" is the drawing competi-
tion. Children from ages 5-11
are encouraged to participate
and will have the full two hours
to design a drawing based on


the "Running for a Healthy
Heart" theme.
All drawings will hang in the
main hallway of Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
located on Sun' N Lake
Boulevard.
Judging of the competition
will be done by Art League vol-
unteers and the winner will be
selected on Tuesday.
The winner of the competi-
tion will receive a $75 gift cer-
tificate to Toys-R-Us. The win-
ning drawing will be used as the
design for the T-shirts to be
worn by runners in the Florida
Hospital's Gala 5K.
Those participating in the
drawing competition will be
automatically entered in the
Gala 5K.
Jamie Bateman, develop-
ment officer with Florida
Hospital, is convinced the event
will be fun for all.
"The kids will have an
opportunity to get involved and
prepare for the Gala 5K,"
Bateman said.


The Gala 5K is the Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
Foundations largest fund-raiser.
"The 5k will be a family
event," Bateman said, "The
adult run will have a Fun
Run/Walk and a Gallop for
more serious runners."
To participate in the "Fun
Run" the cost is $15, the Gallop
is $20. Both entree fees include
a T-shirt with the "Kid's Day"
winner's design.
The gala incorporates three
main events: the Gala 5K Run
to be held on Nov. 5, a black tie
dinner and concert on Nov. 10
and a golf tournament on Nov.
11 at Sun 'N Lake Golf Course.
The performer at this year's
concert will be Sandi Patty. All
proceeds from these events go
to the Florida Hospital
Heartland Division Foundation.
The Florida Hospital
Heartland Division has room
for additional sponsors. Those
interested in sponsorship or the
events may contact Jamie
Bateman at 402-5335.


SUICIDE Woman struggles within


Continued from 11A
consultation also may be a
contributing factor in
repeated attempts.
Suicide is the third lead-
ing cause of death among
young people ages 15 to
24.
This is attributed to the
stress, confusion, and
depression from situations
occurring in their families,
schools, and communities.
Some warning signs of
suicidal behavior are, feel-
ings of hopelessness,
impulsive or aggressive
behavior, refusal to seek
treatment, loss (relational,
social, work, or financial),
and physical illness .
If you or someone you
know is contemplating
suicide, seek the help of
professionals like those at

* This is a commentary which
has changed the names to protect
the victim's identity.
By LAURA COURSON-SNELLGROVE
News-Sun
Maria James was a popular and
intelligent 21-year-old nursing
student with her entire life before
her.
That is why her family and
friends were shocked by her sui-
cide.
James had moved to a larger
town to study nursing. She was
full of ambition.'
That changed after just a few
months. She and her long time
boyfriend separated and she was
having difficulty making friends.
James became depressed.
When she returned home dur-
ing a break from school, James
made her first suicide attempt by
taking half a bottle of over-the-
counter pain medication.
Luckily, the affects of the med-
ication could not be hidden from'
.her family and she was rushed to
the hospital were she was treated
and released.


After first suicide attempt,


James refused to seek profession-
al help. Instead she and her par-
ents decided she would be happi-
er closer to her friends and fami-
ly.
James moved into an apartment
in her hometown and began tak-
ing classes at the local college.
She had been home a month
when she made another suicide
attempt by. taking over 100
Tylenol tablets.
This time she succeeded. The
damage that the pain medication
caused to her liver could not be
repaired.
Because the damage was
caused by a suicide attempt,
James was not eligible for a trans-
plant.
During her final weeks of life
James only talked of wanting the
pain, both physical and mental, to
be over.
"I just want to stop hurting,"
she said. "I want to die now."
When the end did come,
James' mother was at her side.
"I just want to know why she
didn't want to stay with us," her
mother said. "We all loved her so
much."

By PHIL ATTINGER
,f,'w.-SUn
SEBRING - Whether or not law enforce-
ment followed proper procedure in gathering
evidence took the focus of last week's bank rob-
bery trial.

transfer of e% idence from one officer or agency
to another, where items could have been dam-
aged, switched, altered, or misplaced.

stopped and ran back in time to see it take off.
The car went south on Hawthorne Dnve -
now "Cresimore" - toward Sheriff's Deputies
Juan Delgado and Reginald Sampson. Domm
saw a black knit glove and a pile of money with
red dye on it fall onto the street from the left
rear door. He stood guard on it until deputies
could collect it. he said.
Delgado, holding a shotgun from his car,
ordered the driver to stop and get out. He did.
Sampson patted him down and handcuffed him.
Both Delgado and Sampson said they arrest-
ed Vann. Sampson said Vann had a cellular
phone on him and some cash, which he left in
Vann's pockets.

another runner who was wearing a ski mask.
whom he said was Hanna. While searching him,
Ahler said he found a loaded handgun with a
round in the chamber, and a gold medallion.
Hanna's attorney, Frank Oberhausen,
quizzed Ahler on whether he wrote the serial
number for the gun in reports. Ahler couldn't


recall %when or hbw. When shown reports. he
said it was his writing. but he didn't remember
doing it.
Ahler put the gun, magazine, medalhon and

reason, they are not allowed .to

TUFFIN9 IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Keeping up

with Miller
I spent Monday morning at
Albertsons, shadowing the
CAST.
The CAST is a person,
Marvin Miller in this case. His
title stands for Common Area
Store Technician.
It means Miller dry mops
the store's floor; six times in
six hours.
He uses a large dry mop,
and has a regular route and
schedule.
Miller 'moves like the wind.
I'm not kidding.
He is 75 years old and nurs-
ing a bone spur, but I still had
to trot to keep up with him.
He covers 12 miles a day.
He figured it out, and I don't
doubt him.
Each average aisle requires
two passes, one up the left and
one up the right. Wider aisles
take three passes, the third
running up the middle. It takes,

Team pays attention to details


Albertsons constantly steers toward
customer satisfaction
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - A supermarket is like a Main Street, only built in a
square and under one roof.
There are specialty shops around its periphery: The butcher,
baker, fish monger, dairy, deli and pharmacy.
Filling the middle are aisles of food, cleaning supplies, sundries,
wine, flowers, candles and cards.
It takes a team of specialized individuals to keep the operation
humming.
Jobs are clearly defined, time studied and specific. They have to
be, because keeping a grocery store on track means keeping track of
details.
Take the task of pricing.
To begin with, some prices are local, some regional, and some
national.
It's so complicated, in fact, that at Albertsons there are people
who do nothing but check and change prices.
This is done by computer, some of them hand-held and looking
like props out of "Lost In Space."
The price checkers also have to review price-per-unit figures, and
do inventory and auditing.
Making sure sale items are properly marked down or marked back
up, is another of their important, although tedious, tasks.
Pricing also includes knowing what gets sales taxed, and it's any-
thing but simple.
For example, 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice is not taxable.
Blended juice is. Cookies are not taxable, but cookies dipped in
chocolate are. Regular ice cream is tax free, novelty ice cream is not.
Then there's the so-called simple process of getting groceries to a
customer's car.
Just filling the bags requires attention.
There are strict rules at Albertsons: Bread and eggs go together;
chemicals are never mixed with food; cans always go on the bottom,
and bags are always easy to lift.
Albertsons Manager Don Clay has been running the store since it
opened in 1997. He likens it to a cruise ship, rather than battleship.
The idea is to make the shopping experience pleasant for the cus-
tomer, and the work pleasant for the employees. The whole idea, he
said, is to get people to come back.
He takes great pride that his staff of about 60 has earned the high-
est customer satisfaction scores in the company's eastern region.
"No one job here is less important than another," he said. "We
have to work together, that way everyone accomplishes more."
Pay increases with experience and responsibility.
Albertsons is at 3610 U.S. 27. It is open from'7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
every day. The telephone number is 402-0333.

. Marn in Miller is the Common Area Store Technician at Albertsons. He walks 12 miles a day, dry
"mopping the entire store six times in six hours.

Barnhill's aids in hurricane relief efforts


Feeds 12,000 Gulf Coast
residents per day
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Barnhill's Buffet Inc.
had several stores in the Gulf Coast area that
were severely impacted by Hurricane Katrina,
specifically the Gulf Port, Moss Point, and
Hattiesburg restaurants.
The Company initiated its Disaster and
Recovery Team immediately after the storm and
began to turnmthis disaster into a service opportu-
nity. From providing meals for the hungry to sup-
plying the company's associates with gasoline
and generators, Bamhill's Buffet responded to
the needs of the communities it serves.
Since Sept. 7, Barnhill's Buffet has been
preparing 10,000 meals per day in the
Hattiesburg, Miss., area and 2,000 meals per day
in Moss Point, Miss., that have been distributed
to residents in need as a result of the hurricane.
Barnhill's joined forces with the American Red
Cross to help distribute these meals to families in
sfielters as well as those living in homes with no
power.
President Craig Barber said, "We received a
call from the Red Cross at 4:30 p.m. one after-
noon asking if we could have 5,000 hot meals
prepared by 9 a.m. the next morning. Our team
worked non-stop through the night sourcing food,


MILLER
Continued from 13A
spent on prevention, was noth-
ing compared to the costs of
slip and fall lawsuits.
So Miller works with his
head down, staying focused on
his task.
Now Clay did, a while back,
have Miller try working while
looking up and making eye
contact with customers. It
turned out to be a disaster.
With eye contact, customers
kept stopping Miller to-ask for
information. That threw the
carefully timed schedule hope-
lessly off.
Worse, Miller doesn't know
where anything is, or what's on
sale - it isn't in his job
description - and he hated to
say, "I don't know."
The "look up at the cus-
tomer" experiment was put
aside, and Miller went back to
looking down while zooming
around.
One of the CAST's responsi-
- abilities is check on the emer-
gency spill stations. There are
six of them around the store,
each has six components.
Miller has to check to be
sure the broom, dust pan,
warning sign, paper towels,
plastic bags, and magic ingre-
dient are in place.
Moisture on a polished gro-


staff, transportation along with generators and
did an incredible job to help feed those in need."
Chief Executive Officer Bob Langford said.
"It's amazing to see the sacrifice that our employ-
ees are making - some of whom lost everything
themselves. Their resilient spirit and determina-
tion are inspiring. Associates from throughout
our system have aided in this effort - from
Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and even the hardest
hit areas of Gulf Port and Moss Point. Preparing
12,000 meals each day is a Herculean effort, but
our team rose to the challenge."
In recognition of the effort of so many to ben-
efit those in need, Barnhill's has printed T-shirts
for its associates in the affected areas that cap-
tures the spirit of this devoted team. Each T-shirt
will carry the newly adopted slogan - "One Bad
Storm ... Unlimited Determination!"
Bamhill's, based in Nashville, Tenn., operates
41 restaurants in seven states (Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Tennessee and Texas). It also has a store in
Sebring.
Barnhill's restaurants feature all-you-can-eat
buffets that include a wide variety of foods
including salads, Southern-style vegetables and
casseroles, fried, grilled and hickory-smoked
meats and desserts. The menu emphasizes
Southern-style cuisine and occasionally includes
specialty items such as seafood and steak.


cery store floor is a disaster
waiting to happen. Spills have
to be taken care of quickly.
That's where the magic
comes in.
It is a product, which looks
a little like gray soap flakes.
Sprinkled on any puddle, it
immediately absorbs all the
moisture, leaving an easily
handled wad of stuff that looks
a little like bread dough.
Called Spill Magic, it has to
be worked into the moisture.
You knead it with the broom,
which is the stiff bristle, rec-
tangular type.
It was'suggested that Miller
find a bottle of anything gooey
and wet, and intentionally
break it, to demonstrate how
well the Spill Magic worked.
We went back to the condi-
meQt aisle, where he looked
for any small bottle, settling on
a jar of capers.
When it came to actually
making a mess, however,
Miller had his limits. If anyone
was going to ruin his floor,
especially on purpose, it would
have to be him, so it was he
who hurled a capered fast ball
directly onto the floor.
The jar bounced without
injury.
Miller grabbed it and flung
it with all of his might.
It only bounced higher.
Again and again he threw.
the jar; again and again the jar


refused to break.
Until. someone suggested we
might do well to find a more
breakable bottle - and that
while we were at it, we might
think to look in the box of re-
calls, instead of taking a good
product off of the shelf.
We settled for a rejected jar
of Smucker's Goober - which
is peanut butter swirled with
jelly.
The jar shattered without a
bounce on the first try. The
weight of the peanut butter
held it down. The glass mostly
stuck to the peanut butter too,
which made it easy to pick-up,
but dangerous.
The Spill Magic sucked up
the jelly and the oil in the
peanut butter, so it did look
like .cookie dough, and easily
rolled opto a dust pan.
I wish I could say I rolled as
easily, as we then doubled-
timed through the store, mak-
ing up for the time we'd lost
making a mess. It hurts to
admit I was out-run by a 75
year old, but I was.

J.L. Warren of Lake Placid tells Lake Placid Do It Best Hardware Assistant Manager Jerry Mundell,
'I'm so glad this store's finally open again. It's so convenient."


Hardware store plans to


'Do It Best' in Lake Placid


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - Robert
Tillis has the experience to do it
best.
After graduating from high
school in Dade City 25 years
ago, Tillis started with Scotty's
Hardware and spent the last 14
years managing the Lake Placid
store.
After the April buyout of the
Scotty's Lake Placid and
Arcadia stores, the new Lake
Placid Do It Best Hardware
plans to make a difference with
Tillis at the helm as manager.
"These are private owners,
not a big corporation. This is a
mom and pop operation who
are 'hands on.' Outr goal is to be
the best hometown hardware
store and offer the best service.
Our employees are absolutely
the best. We're not a big box
store. We want to know our cus-
tomers. I personally know our
commercial customers by name
and emphasize with them a one-
on-one relationship," Tillis
said. "As for regular customers,
we get lots of ladies picking up
plumbing supplies and they say
they like our help. Plus Do It
Best makes it convenient to be


able to get in and out with the
right products."
Beforehand, Tillis noted
there was a problem with items
being out of stock. '
"Now every department is
well stocked and there's better
pricing. We've revised our paint
department with a new. clean
look."
Do It Best has a paint color
system that will match colors
using state-of-the-art equip-
ment.
Tillis likes to stress that lie
runs a hardware store, but also a
small lumberyard. In addition,
he is putting together a major
development scheduled for
spring. It will be a garden cen-
ter. Right now, Do It Best han-
dles chemicals, hoses and lawn
items and that area of the busi-
ness is already tremendous,
composing 30-40 percent of the
business. The garden center is
going to be impressive and a
reil addition to the Lake Placid
community.
"The owners are great. They
are from Lakeland, Orlando and
Port St. Lucie. They are all
'hands on.' They get right in
here and help out to make
things move smoothly. That


gives us more people on the
floor. The owners are here for
two to three days each week
and are an essential part of our
team. This not only allows us to
get projects done quickly, but
also to still be able to give qual-
ity service to the customer,"
Tillis said.
Do It Best's emphasis right
now is to get fully stocked for
season.
"The snowbird homeowners
will soon be arriving and need-
ing plumbing supplies and
hardware and we don't want to
let them down," Tillis said.
"Having managed the
Scotty's, I can now say our
prices are back to normal, and
we have great employees to
help with customers' inquiries.
With the high price of gas now,
we want to solve hardware and
plumbing needs for our local
customers. They'll find it's not
only more convenient, but also
cost effective," Tillis said.
Lake Placid Do It Best
Hardware is at 190 Plaza Ave.
in the Winn Dixie plaza. Hours
are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and 9 a.m. to
5 p:m. Sunday. Phone 465-1999

Government
expands number
of missing bonds
Associated Press
WASHINGTON - The case
of the missing savings bond may
have just gotten easier to solve.
The government announced
Thursday that it has greatly
expanded from 200,000 to more
than 4 million the number of
bonds that can be searched to
see if they match up with the
original bond holder's Social
Security number.
.It is all part .of the govern-
ment's effort to encourage the
owners of some 33 million
matured savings bonds worth
more than $13.5 billion to
redeem their holdings.
Under the program, people
who think that they own a bond,
but have misplaced the records
of their ownership can visit the
Web site -
www.publicdebt.treas.gov - and
click on the "Treasury Hunt"
section under savings bonds and
follow the instructions_

Roberts sidesteps issues for .now


Real world
awaits Senate's
confirmation
By GINA HOLLAND
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Chief
Justice nominee John Roberts
could not be pinned down this
week on subjects like abortion
and assisted suicide. Next
month might be another story.
The Supreme Court's fall
agenda is loaded with meaty
issues that, to the consternation
of Senate
Democrats,
Roberts would
not address dur-
ing Senate con-
firmation hear-
ings on his nom-
ination to be the
nation's , 17th
chief justice.
Roberts so
skillfully evaded
efforts to nail
down his personal views on the
law and issues before the court
over the past three days that
conservatives and liberals alike
were left with no clear picture
of where, if confirmed as
expected, he would lead the
Supreme Court.
"After several days of testi-
mony and questioning it is
extremely frustrating to realize
that we still do not know the
legal position of Judge Roberts
on several critical moral and
social issues," the Rev. Patrick
J. Mahoney, director of the
Christian Defense Coalition,
said Thursday.
Ralph Neas, head of the lib-
eral People for the American
Way, said, "Silence is normally
golden, but in the case of
Supreme Court nominee John
Roberts, it's downright omi-
nous."
Roberts did reveal some
things under relentless grilling
of Democrats on the Senate
Judiciary Committee.
There was the light - his
favorite movies are' "Dr.
Zhivago" and "North by
- Northwest"- and the substan-
tive - he does not share the
same interpretation of the
Constitution as Antonin Scalia
and Clarence Thomas or agree
with the practice of Anthony
Kennedy and several other jus-
tices of using foreign law in
decisions.
The 50-year-old appeals
court judge was a self-disci-
plined and intelligent witness.
He cited phrasing of opinions


with near perfect recall, never
referring to notes or conferring
with a phalanx of .Justice
Department and White House
lawyers seated behind him.
On several occasions he
revealed a moderate tempera-
ment, including an acknowl-
edgment that the 1973 Roe v.
Wade ruling that established a
woman's right to abortion was
settled precedent. He main-
tained that his record as an
appeals court judge shows he's
not an ideologue, as Democrats
said they feared.
"I see a streak of independ-
rATE






JATIC


ence in this person," said
Kermit L. Hall, a historian and
president of the State
University of New York at
Albany.
The committee is to vote on
his nomination next week, and
the White House hopes the full
Senate will vote in time for
Roberts to be on the bench the
first week of October, when the
court will take up the Bush
administration's challenge to
Oregon's assisted suicide law.
Justices also will review a
parental notification abortion
law, several death penalty
appeals, a case involving dis-
ability rights and an appeal that
touches on gay rights.
"He's not going to have a
graqe period. He will find him-
self right smack in the middle
of it," said Stephen Wermiel, an
American University law pro-
fessor.
Roberts, as chief justice,
would preside over a court that
is in flux. The well-liked Chief
Justice William H. Rehnquist
died this month after 33 years
on the court. President Bush has
not nominated a replacement
for retiring' Justice Sandra Day
O'Connor.
It will be months before the
full scope of the shake-up is.
known. O'Connor's vote has
made the difference in some
affirmative action, abortion,
campaign finance, discrimina-
tion and death penalty cases, so.
her replacement will have a
more' significant opportunity to

swing the court.
Roberts' testimony this week
before the Senate committee
showed that, administratively,
he likely will be like Rehnquist,
a conservative who was known
for his evenhanded leadership
in assigning opinions and pre-
siding over court sessions and
private meetings. One excep-
tion may be Roberts' support
for review of more cases.
On the issues, Roberts did
not align himself with any of
the current court members.
Rehnquist had been his mentor.
"I will be my own man on the
Supreme Court,"
said Roberts,
who at times
seemed to dis-
tance himself
from conserva-
tives Scalia and
l l Thomas.'
Roberts said
the Constitution
protects a. right
to privacy and
that he does not
follow the view that the
Constitution means the same
thing today as it did when it was
drafted in 1787, making no


allowances for societal
changes.
He said he agreed with a 38-
year-old high court ruling in a
case involving contraceptives
for married couples, a decision
often cited as the underpinning


for abortion rights. However, he
would not say whether he
would vote to uphold or over-
turn Roe v. Wade.
"1 don't think he's locked
himself into any positions. He
could go anywhere. He could be


another (Justice David) Souter,"
said Ann Althouse, a law pro-
fessor at the University of
Wisconsin, referring to the. lib-
eral justice named to the court
by President Bush's father. "We
really don't know."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Sonshine

pathway
Early one morning while
driving along Lakeview
Drive, my typical route
home was transformed into a
glistening delight.
Through my peripheral
vision, I noticed a pathway
shining across the lake. I
looked swiftly over my
shoulder to see the sun creat-
ing a shimmering highway
of light.
I love seeing the glow
across the water when
there's a full moon. At those
times, I wish I could step out
and gingerly follow its path.
But, for some reason, this
was the first time I'd noticed
this contrast in day light. In
a dark sky, one's eyes are
drawn to the moon. In day-
light, the radiance of the
pathway is all one can safely
look at.
I wondered if this light
would stay at my back and
glanced occasionally to
check. Then quite suddenly
it shifted. Now the shim-
mering pathway was along-
side me. How beautiful, I
thought, wondering how
long it would last.
And, then, it moved again.
Now it was almost in front
of me - except I was on the
road and not the water.
Naturally, this phenome-
non was not changing direc-
tion - I was simply follow-
ing the curve in the road.
Therefore, the sunshine path-
way appeared behind, beside
and before me along the
way.
The imagery reminded me
how Jesus is the Light of the
world who indwells and sur-
rounds me.
Much like the bright path-
way on the lake, he is ever
behind me - gently prodding
and helping me move for-
ward.
He is always alongside me
- helping -me to persevere
and experience his compan-
ionable presence.
And, he is continually
before me - encouraging me
to stay focused on him for
leadership and direction -
especially in stormy times.
Once, the disciples were
struggling to keep their boat
upright on the lake as the
wind whipped waves into
frenzy. Jesus entered this
scene - calmly walking on
the water. The disciples
responded in terror. ,
But, Jesus had sculpted a
Sonshine pathway on the
lake and immediately
calmed their fears..
"Take courage! It is I.
Don't be afraid." (Matthew
14: 27b, NIV)
Once Peter heard this, lie
boldly asked the ILord if he
could come to him on the
water.
"Come," Jesus replied.
And, so, Peter took the
Sonshine pathway on the
lake.
Imagine being able to step
onto liquid and finding it
supportive? But the incredi-
ble feeling soon departed.
Peter's gaze drifted to the
wind, s churning and he
sank.
"Lord, save me!" he cried.
And the Lord's hand reached
for Peter, catching him.
Peter had experienced
Jesus at his back - prodding
him to become his follower.
He knew his companionship
as Jesus walked beside him
teaching and entrusting him
with ministry. Now Peter
knew the importance of
Jesus before him - staying
focused and letting him
lead.
He who is the "Sonshine
pathway" is worthy of our
trust. Selah.

Preventive measures can



help macular degeneration


* This is the second in a two-
part series on age-related mac-
ular degeneration.

By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent

health helps to pre-
serve your eye health
and your vision.
These tips may
help delay the onset of age-
related macular degeneration or
prevent it from progressing and
most of the practices will help
prevent many other serious dis-
eases as well.

Vitamins for eye
nutrition
Since the early 1990s, there
has been increasing medical
evidence that dietary supple-
ments of several vitamins and
minerals may help prevent the
progression of macular degen-
eration.
In 2001, the National Eye
Institute released the long
awaited results of the -Age-
Related Eye Disease Study,
designed to look at the effect of
vitamin supplements 'on AMD
and cataracts.
Results showed that taking
antioxidant vitamin and zinc
preparations regularly help
reduce the progression of
AMD. For people at high risk of
developing advanced stages of
AMD, use of the" combination
of antioxidants and zinc supple-
ments reduced that risk by 25
percent.
"This is an exciting discov-
ery because, for people at high
risk for developing advanced
AMD, these dietary supple-
ments are the first effective
treatment to slow the progres-,
sion of the disease," according
to Dr. Paul A. Sieving, director
of the NEI. "The supplements
are not a cure for AMD nor will
they restore vision already lost
from the disease. But they will
play a key role in helping peo-
ple at high risk for developing
AMD keep their vision."
(source: www.AMD.org).
Since this study, luteins and
carotenoids have been shown to
be helpful as well.
"The earlier you start taking
the vitamin and mineral supple-
ments, the better," said Dr.
Valerie Moulds, optometrist
with Eye Specialists of Mid-
Florida, P.A. "The AREDS
study showed that these slowed
the degeneration process
down."
Moulds also recommends
eating dark green leafy vegeta-
bles such as spinach, broccoli
and romaine lettuce, four times
a week. These are natural
sources of luteins.
There are now several over-
the-counter supplements con-
taining these vitamins formulat-
ed as "nutrition for eyes". Many
of these vitamins and minerals
are found in ordinary supple-
ments as well. Check with a
pharmacist to see if they con-
tain the recommended dosage.

New treatments for
wet AMD
It is estimated that more than


2 million people in the United
States currently have wet AMD,
with an increase of 200,000
new cases each year, according
to the AMD help Web site.
Although this represents only
about 10 percent of all cases of
macular degeneration, wet
AMD is more likely to cause
severe vision loss.
Wet macular degeneration
occurs when abnormal blood
vessels start to grow on the cen-
ter of a person's retina, leaking
blood and fluid which can cause
rapid damage to the macula.
The loss of central vision that
results may be permanent,
because abnormal blood vessels
and scar tissue are actually
replacing normal retina tissue.
Once lost, these light-sensitive
cells in a person's retina cannot
be replaced (www.amdhel.com).
An early symptom of wet
AMD is vision change, when
straight lines appear wavy. A
person may notice black fuzzy
spots in their central vision that

nosed with wet AMD, their doc-
tor may suggest laser treatment

has already lost, but it does
keep abnormal blood vessel
growth from spreading.
Laser treatment uses a highly
focused beam of light. This
beam can be aimed very pre-
cisely. During laser eye surgery,
the laser beam travels through
the pupil to the retina. There, it
seals leaking blood vessels and
dries up the fluid. -
The treatment is done on an
outpatient basis in the doctor's
surgical clinic and takes about
15-30 minutes..First, a patient s

gery.

Macugen
Macugen, a new treatment
therapy for wet AMD was
approved by the Food and Drug
Administration in January


2005. This is the first of a new
type of therapies that inhibit the
underlying cause of leaky blood
vessels in the wet form of mac-
ular degeneration.
Macugen works by blocking
a protein that has been shown to
promote the growth of abnor-
mal blood vessels in
the macula. These
abnormal blood ves-
sels leak fluid and
blood into the layers in
and below the retina.
. By impeding the
. growth of the protein,
Macugen has been
shown to inhibit new
blood vessel formation
and its subsequent
leakage.
Macugen does not
appear to improve
vision, but recent clin-
ical trials have shown
that it can slow vision
loss.
Macugen is used
only on patients who
have progressively
decreasing vision because of
wet macular degeneration. An
eye specialist will be able to
determine if this new treatment
is appropriate for a patient.

Stay active and
enjoy life
AMD may never cause seri-
ous vision loss. But if it does,
there are things a person can do
to stay active, independent and
safe.
First, a person should get an
extra pair of reading glasses and
put them where they need them
most. They should be placed
where a person always has to
stop and look for their glasses.
Make some changes in the
home. Improve the lighting in
work areas. Install automatic
lighting indoors and out.
Remove or secure electric
cords, scatter rugs and small
objects on the floor that might
trip a person.
Look for ways to add con-
trast to the environment. Put
contrasting tape or paint on the
edges of kitchen counters,
doors, or any place that is hard
for a person to see. Make some
signs for hard-to-read instru-
ments and readouts on air con-
ditioner settings, appliances,
operating instructions. If it is
annoying to read it - replace it
with something in larger print.
Mark the "on" and "off"
position on stove and oven con-
trols with colors or raised mark-
ings. Arrange closets, cabinets

DIVERSIONS



'Terrible Twos' are also precious years


Question: I have a 2-year-
old boy who is as cute as a
bug's ear and I love him dearly,
but he nearly drives me crazy.
He throws the most violent tem-
per tantrums and gets into
everything. Why is he like this,
and are other toddlers so diffi-
cult?
Dr. Dobson: Your descrip-
tion of your toddler comes right
out of the child-development
textbooks. That time of life
begins with a bang (like the
crash of a lamp or a porcelain
vase) at about 18 months of age
and runs hot and heavy until
about the third birthday. A tod-
dler is a hard-nosed opponent of
law and order, and he honestly
believes the universe circles
around him. In his cute little
way, he is curious and charm-
ing, funny and lovable, exciting
and selfish and demanding -
and rebellious and destructive.
Comedian Bill Cosby must
have had some personal experi-
ence with toddlers. He is quoted
as saying, "Give me 200 active
2-year-olds and I could conquer
the world."
Children between 15 and 36
months of age do not want to be
restricted or inhibited in any
manner, nor are they inclined to
conceal their opinions. Bedtime
becomes an exhausting, dread-
ed ordeal each night. They want


to play with every-
thing in reach, partic-
ularly fragile and
expensive orna-
ments. They prefer
using their pants
rather than the potty, "
and insist on eating
with their hands. And
most of what goes in
their mouths is not FO0
food. When they ON
break loose in a
store, they run as fast FAI
as their little legs will -
carry them. They Dr. J
pick up the kitty by Dol
its ears and then
scream bloody mur-
der when scratched. They want
mommy within three feet of
them all day, -preferably in the
role of their full-time playmate.
Truly, the toddler is a tiger --
but a precious one.
I hope you won't get too dis-
tressed by the frustrations of the
toddler years. It is a very brief
period of development that will
be over before you know it.
With all its challenges, it is also
a delightful time when your lit-
tle boy is at his cutest.
Approach him with a smile and
a hug. But don't fail to establish

Question: The
children who play
with my kids in the
neighborhood are
familiar with terrible
"' programs on televi-
sion and cable TV. I
can't believe that
their parents let them
US watch such violent
HE and sexualized stuff.
What are the long-
ILY term consequences of
-- this programming on
mes children?
on Dr. Dobson: It is
- sad and very difficult
to understand why so
many parents fail to supervise
what their kids watch. To those
who let them watch anything
they wish, I would pose this
proposition: Suppose a com-
plete stranger came to your
door and said: "You look tired.
Why don't you let me take care
of your children for a day or
two?" I doubt if many of you
would say: "Great idea. Come
on in."
That's a story children's TV
advocate Peggy Charren liked
to tell. Her point is well-taken.
When we sit our children in
front of the television set, we're
giving control over them to
complete strangers; and more
and more, that's a risky thing to


do. An increasing number of
studies have found that violence
on television frequently leads to
later aggressive behavior by
children and teenagers.
One of the most conclusive
studies was conducted by Dr.
Leonard D. Aaron. He exam-
ined a group of children at age 8
and then again at 19 and finally
at 30. Children in the United
States, Australia, Finland, Israel
and Poland were studied. The
outcome was the same; the
more frequently the participants
watched violent television at
age 8, the more serious were the
crimes that they were convicted
of by age 30, and the more
aggressive was their behavior
when drinking. It's time for par-
ents to control the amount and,
the content of television that
their children are watching. The
consequences of not doing so
can be catastrophic.

Friend wears out welcome


Dear Abby: An old friend of
mine, "Maria," moved away six
years ago. Imagine my surprise
when she showed up on my
doorstep last Easter. I had just
started a new job and was
bogged down with work. Maria
had always said I was welcome
to come and stay at her new
home "any time." So, when she
mentioned she was going to try
to find a hotel, I said, "Of
course not! Stay with me!"
Abby, Maria knew'I had to
put my best foot forward at
work and that I had no vacation
time coming. But she insisted
that I go out with her to bars
and stay until they. closed.
When I reminded her I had to
take it easy and get to bed early,
she loaded on the guilt.'It was
clear she was only concerned
with her good time and ho.w
much her plane fare had cost
her. I was relieved to see her go.


Last night, Marla
called and
announced that she's
coming back next
month, so I should
"mark my calendar."
She did not ask if it
was convenient for
her to visit me. She
met a guy while she
was here, and I sus-
pect that's the reason
for her visit. I'm
afraid 'she's assuming
my spare room is

it to her. She'll drive me huts.
On the other hand, we've been
friends a long time. I don't want
to hurt her feelings. Please give.
me some advice - and hurry!
- Not Mrs. Hilton
Dear Not Mrs. H: You have
described a person who is cen-
tered on her own "needs" to the
exclusion of those around her


- and by definition
that's a user, not a
friend.
Pick up the phone
- and tell Marla you
would love to see her
one night while she's
in town, but you are
unable. to have her
stay with you. Do not
ABBY apologize for it or
allow her to put you
'hillips on the defensive. Do
' it now, so she'll, have
plenty of time to
make hotel reservations, or you
will be blamed for inconve-
niencing her.
Dear Abby: I am having a
senior block (not moment) here.
With so many troops in Iraq,
and the news reports - I can't
remember what the abbrevia-
tion "GI" stands for. Help! -

A swallow-tail kite visits Highlands Hammock State Park.


Park welcomes new faces


Every so often, new staff members
come to Highlands Hammock State
Park and we like to introduce them to
the community. Today you will "meet"
Judy D. Buchanan, who grew up as a
"park kid."
Buchanan's father was a national
park ranger at Wind Cave National
Park in South Dakota. She recalls liv-
ing at the park in a Civilian
Conservation Corps-era cottage. This.
cottage was rather roomy by CCC
standards, with four bedrooms and the
typical one bathroom which was com-
mon for that era. "I remember the tin
roof especially," Buchanan said. "The
magpies would drop stones on it and
you could hear them rolling down the
slope of the roof." Buchanan also
remembers spelunking with her dad
and several of her siblings.
"Cave crawling," as she calls it,
gave her the opportunity to wonder
over the mystical limestone forma-
tions found deep inside the caves. One
she recalls reminded her of a man's
beard, a goatee, to be exact. Another's
many small pockets were reminiscent'

of rows of mailboxes. One cavern, known as the
Devenport Room, holds a special appreciation for
- her family. "We found out about it during a return
trip to the cave for the centennial celebration,"
Buchanan said. "My son entered a silent auction,
and when we reviewed the map he bid on, we saw
the Devenport Room on the map. Devenport is
my maiden name."
"We were also amazed by the small size of the
CCC house," Buchanan said. As a child, the
,home seemed huge to her. Upon returning to visit
as an adult, she could only marvel over her par-
ent's ability to raise five children in a four bed-
room house with only one bathroom. Luckily,
there was a nearly equal distribution of boys and
girls in the family.
"Since Dad worked in the national parks, we
often camped in them during our annual trip to
Florida to see our grandparents. All five kids and
both parents camped out in a VW van,"
Buchanan said. How's that for some close family
time?
These memories are at the heart of who she is.
Buchanan has always had a strong conservation
ethic, likely imprinted during her childhood years
living in the national park. This appreciation con-


tinued as she and her husband, Mark,
. took their own kids camping in nation-
S: .- al forests. During their 28 years of mar-

b youngest is finishing up his last year at
the University of North Florida, and the
"- other is due to bless her with her first
grandchild later this year.
Most recently employed as a human
resource manager, Buchanan said she
|EAL desired a career change. Remembering
all the good things about her dad's job,
IDA and her positive experiences running a
- . farm with her husband years before,
Harris she decided to enroll in the University
of Florida's Master Naturalist program.
With her husband's full support, she
;-F began to focus on a career in resource
management so she could be outdoors
more.
"I saw the Highlands Hammock job
advertised on the People First Web site,
so I decided to apply," Buchanan said.
.^ Her extensive outdoor-related work
experience from her farm days was a
huge benefit, and fulfilled many of the
NAN required skills and abilities for the posi-
tion as a park ranger.
Three months into her ranger position;
Buchanan said she loves everything about it; "I
just love the park, the diversity of th6 habitats, the
wildlife and even the people. You never know
who or what you will see each day." For instance,
recently she was asked to check out a report of an
injured bird, and wound up getting the photo of a
lifetime. "I went to check it out and located a very
large, black and white bird in the park's picnic
area. The bird was huge. I was not able to get
very close to it, but I did manage to get some pho-
tos with my digital camera."
The bird was a young swallow-tail kite. These
impressive birds of prey visit the Hammock each
spring and summer to mate and raise their young
before returning to South America. This young
fledgling was not injured, but apparently just test-
ing its wings. Enjoy the photo of this beautiful,
creature and don't forget to say hi to Buchanan
the next time you visit the "Real Florida."

If you like to look at buildings,
especially houses, then you may find
books on architectural styles interest-
ing.
Sebring has a number of houses and
commercial buildings that reflect the
different tastes and changes in styles
that occurred from its founding
through its first decade. In Sebring,
"City on the Circle," author Stephen
Olausen's photographs of many of the
historic buildings give us a tour of the
styles early Sebring residents favored.
The early residences were built from
local materials, in a style called frame

vernacular, but the influence of the craftsman
movement led several builders to choose the bun-
galow, with its'emphasis on exposed rafter ends,
beams, and brackets. Some of the best examples
of bungalows are the'Edward L. Hainz house on
West Center Avenue, constructed in 1917, with
its variant "airplane" or "camel back" second
story extension, the Gharst House and the Eva
Sebring Norris House in the 300 block of
Southeast Lakeview Drive, and the Eucalyptus
Street houses of W.B. Leatherman and Mary L.
Watts, both built in the mid-1920s.
The ideas and builder's plans for these houses
were heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts
Movement that began in the late 1800s in
England and was Americanized by changing its
emphasis on handmade furniture and decorative
arts to factory production. Using many of the
same simple lines, native woods, and structural
exposures of the constructed house or furniture,
American builders and furniture makers, notably
, Gustav Stickley, brought the craftsman look to
thousands of homeowners. Especially in Sebring,
one can see mixed together with the craftsman
style, the art deco, and Spanish influences. Use of
native materials meant wood houses, but as the
Mediterranean-influenced styles gained favor, so
did the extensive use of stucco and the curves of
a Spanish-like look.
Today, craftsman style as well as the bungalow
. style home plans are still available, because both


are so adaptable to both modest and
expansive home designs. "Arts &
Crafts Home Plans" has a lot more than
just floor plans; it discusses the differ-
ences between the craftsman, prairie,
and bungalow types of homes.
Some other books of interest on this
subject are: "The Art That is Life: The
Arts & Crafts Movement in America,
1875-1920;" a beautifully illustrated
"The Arts & Crafts House;" "The New
Bungalow;" and "Inside the Bungalow:
America's Arts & Crafts Interior"
which is a showcasing of before-and-
after rooms. A wonderful visitation of


extraordinary Arts & Crafts homes can be
enjoyed in the book "Greene & Greene
Masterworks." These brothers moved the vision
of British artist William Morris from strictly Arts
& Crafts to anew level-Japanese touches with a
hint of the bungalow, and the heavy use of won-
derful wood and glass. This is a book worth
savoring. Check out our Centuries of Style series
books, "Arts & Crafts Movement Glass and
Pottery," "Furniture and Metalwork" and
"Textiles and Interiors."
If you want to get to the root of all this, then I'd
recommend two books; "William Morris" (one
title in the Discovering Art series) by N. M.
Wells, and "Women Artists of the Arts & Crafts
Movement" by Anthea Callen. Naturalistic pat-
terns on wallpaper, embroidery, pottery, jewelry,
furniture ... its unique look is here to enjoy. So
much of what was then has come back to us in
newer versions of home plans and furnishings
because, of the quality of the work, the imagina-
tion of the Arts & Crafts Movement, and the cot-
tage industries that sprang up to supply the pat-
terns and designs in demand.

Most fish kills happen because of low dissolved oxygen


* This article is a summary of
information provided in a new
pamphlet titled "Understanding
Fish Kills in Florida
Freshwater Systems'."

A fish kill can cause concern
for and may lead to questions
about the health of the lake.
What you may not know is that
in Florida, fish kills occur fre-
quently and most of them are
natural.
There are several environ-
mental factors that can lead to a
fish kill in lakes. Among the
most common are low dis-
solved oxygen levels, spawning
fatalities, cold temperatures,
and fish parasites or diseases.
Some fish become more sus-
ceptible to these environmental
conditions after being weak-
ened by stress.
The most common cause of
fish kills in Florida is low dis-
solved oxygen. Warm water
fish generally need five parts
per million dissolved oxygen
concentration. South Florida
Water Management District
documented that 87 percent of
the fish kills in South Florida


occurred when dissolved oxy-
gen was 3 ppm or less. If fish
are seen gulping for air at the
surface just before a fish kill
occurs, that is one clue that low
dissolved oxygen was the cause
of the fish kill.
You may be wondering what
causes low dissolved oxygen.
Plants and algae release oxygen
into the water through photo-
synthesis. Aquatic organisms
like fish, insects, and bacteria
use oxygen. At night when
plants can't photosynthesize,
they actually become con-
sumers (users) of oxygen. Low
dissolved oxygen .can occur
when 'oxygen gets used faster
than the plants release it during
the day. Furthermore, on hot
summer days oxygen is used
faster by fish. A few cloudy
days in a row during the hot
summer are a prime time for
oxygen depletions to occur.
Oxygen production through
photosynthesis is reduced while
oxygen consumption by fish
remains the same. After a few
days oxygen levels can become
severely depleted.
Another cause of low dis-


solved oxygen is
through the natural
process of decomposi-
tion. Decomposing
plants and/or algae
can trigger bacteria
into a "feeding fren-
zy" and as a result
consume oxygen
faster than normal as
they decompose the
new material. Severe
oxygen depletion can
occur if there is a
large amount of dead
vegetation or algae
.and can result in a fish
kill.
Heavy thunder-


NEWS FROM

THE

WATERSHED

Jennifer Donze


storms can also cause low oxy-
gen because they tend to wash
large amounts of organic mate-
rial such as dried leaves, grass,
etc. into canals, lakes, and
ponds resulting in increased
bacterial activity. Also, low
oxygen levels can occur after a
thunderstorm during an event
called a lake turnover. During
hot weather, the surface of a
lake warms faster than the
deeper water. This results in a
temporary layering effect called


stratification.
Because the top
layer has constant
access to the atmos-
phere, it tends to
have more oxygen
than the bottom
layer. Heavy winds
or cold rains could
break the stratifica-
tion and cause the
two layers to mix. If
the volume of the
low oxygen bottom
waters is much
greater than the oxy-
gen-rich surface
layer, the.mixing can
result in low dis-


solved oxygen levels through-
out the water column and
potentially result in a fish kill.
Spawning fatalities are both
natural and common in Florida
waterbodies. Fatalities usually
result due to exhaustion from
courtship behavior; nest build-
ing, and the release of eggs or
milt. Some fish may suffer fatal
injury defending their young.
After spawning, fish are often
quite weak and any change in
the environment can stress them


significantly and lead to death.
Fish kills related to spawning
usually occur during the spring
and early summer when the
majority of fish is spawning and
are generally identified by the
deaths of adult fish only.
belonging to one or two differ-
ent species.
Cold temperatures can also
be a natural cause of fish kills.
The types of fish killed because
of cold temperatures are usually
cold intolerant species that have
been introduced in Florida. For
example, blue tilapia was intro-
duced from Africa's Nile River
and die when temperatures drop
below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. I
was witness to this type of fish
kill in Gainesville in 2001 after
a cold front moved through and
the stench of thousands of dead
blue tilapia could be smelled a
mile away.
Fish diseases and parasites
occur naturally in Florida lakes
and, under certain circum-
stances, fish can become sick. A
healthy fish is usually able to
fend off such problems, but if a
fish is weak from spawning it is
more susceptible to getting-sick


and possibly dying.
There are several physical
and behavioral clues that a fish
will exhibit if it is infected with
parasites or diseases. Open
sores on the body, missing
scales, lack of slime, or strange
growths on the body, head, or
fins are obvious physical clues.
Abnormal behaviors include
swimming weakly, lazily, errat-
ically, or in spirals, or floating
head, tail, or belly up. In the
natural environment, these
types of health problems are
more difficult to spot than on a
fish farm.
Human induced fish kills
have been known to occur
through the unintentional spill
or leak of contaminants into a
nearby waterbody. In the past
highway accidents involving
tanker trucks full of fertilizers
or other toxic substances have
resulted in chemicals spilling
into nearby waterbodies. Barges
have been known to run into
things, rupturing storage tanks
and releasing oil or other con-
taminants. Gas pipelines have
also been known to crack and

Aries: Concentrate on special someone


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- You're normally a hothead,
Aries, but this week you have
all the patience in the world -
especially where romance is
concerned. Concentrate on that
special someone.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Romance and good inten-
tions await you at every turn in
the road this week, Taurus. It
seems that Cancer could be a
positive love match. Pamper
yourself in preparation.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- This may be a good time to
have your vision checked,
Gemini. Poor eyesight may be
the reason you've been feeling
off-balanced lately. Take some
time for relaxation on Tuesday.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- Make peace with a familiar

leak oil into various aquatic
environments. Sometimes a
spill may not be toxic, but may
cause a shift in water tempera-
ture or a change in pH that
causes a fish kill.
If human induced fish kill
event should occur, there are
often clues that will help identi-
fy the problem. A "film" or
"slick" can sometimes be seen
on the surface of the water, or


place, Cancer. You're
bound to be spending
more time there than
you imagined.
Friends come to your

Serv


rescue on Wednesday
when you could use a break.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
Be subtle when resolving a
problem midweek, Leo. There's
no point for crude behavior, and
that will only attract unsavory
individuals. Keep a low profile
on the weekend.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Exercise is the perfect form
of meditation this week, Virgo.
When you're feeling down in
the dumps head out for a brisk
walk or take a trip over to the
gym.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)
- The choice is yours when an


the color or clarity of the water
may change. (Beware: An oily
sheen on the water or color or
clarity change can also be the
result of an algae bloom.)
Observers should look for evi-
dence of other wildlife species
being affected such, as birds,
frogs, snakes, turtles, etc.
If you are witness to a fish
kill there are several things you
can do. First, collect fish and
water samples as soon as possi-
ble (within hours). A decaying
fish that gives off a strong odor
can not be submitted for diag-


COPES important issue pops
� up. This scares you
News because if things
fice don't go as planned,
you only have your-
self to blame.
Concentrate on friendships.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- Wherever you go this week
you're bound to be at the center
of something unpredictable,
Scorpio. If this is what you're
looking for, great. If not, stick
close to home.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - Your fly-by-night friends
are clearing for takeoff. Don't
feel let down by these superfi-
cial relationships. Concentrate
on developing new and sincere
friendships and you will be
rewarded with a new life out-


nosis. Next, write down your
observations of the fish kill
(date, time, weather conditions,
type and number of dead fish,
body condition of dead fish).
You can also talk to neighbors
to find out if they noticed any-
thing unusual about the lake in
the past few days. Then call the
Florida' Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission Fish
Kill Hotline (800) 636-0511.
Further information about
fish kills is available through a
new publication called "A
Beginner's Guide to Water
Management - Fish Kills"

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - This week you are hav-
ing too much fun to rest. All of
this excitement might go to
your head, so make sure you
plan for some recuperation time
next week. Children are a main
component.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- Extravagance is out of the
question this week, Aquarius.
You will only create a nasty
downward spiral if you contin-
ue to be so careless. Plan for the
future - it's more important.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- There's no further need for
caution and secrecy. It's high
time you made your big
announcement. Others will
applaud in your honor and truly
be happy for your success.

Other viewpoints

Gov. Jeb Bush's Medicaid reform plan - promising
better care at less cost - sounds too good to be true. It is
not, however. The plan is grounded on sound principles,
and it would replace a hopelessly flawed system.
Costs are increasing at a rate of 13 percent a year under
the current fee-for-service system, according to Alan
Levine, secretary of the state's Agency for Health Care
Administration.
That, he says, is partly because of fraud. Medicaid
pays 140 million claims a year to 80,000 providers. It's
difficult to make certain all are legitimate, and the "pay,
first, ask questions later" policy makes 'matters worse.
Besides, Levine says, fewer than half of all recipients
take advantage of preventive physical exams 'that are
covered by Medicaid. As a result, many children have
undiagnosed illnesses - and when they finally are
detected, the child usually is sick enough that the medical
costs are substantially higher.
The solution, as Levine sees it, is to move recipients
into managed care systems more closely resembling the
type of insurance carried by those who buy health insur-
ance through their workplace.
Under this system, recipients would be offered their
choice of several provider networks. The state would pay
premiums to the providers, less for those diagnosed as
healthy and more for those with illnesses.
With patient and provider alike having more incentive
to conduct preventive exams, people could be healthier
- and the state would be left with fewer costs for taking
care of the sick.
The state is seeking federal permission for pilot pro-
grams in Duval and Broward counties. The old system is
a proven failure. There is reason to believe the new one
would be better.

An editorial excerpt from The Florida Times-Union.

Balancing the federal budget anytime in the near future
is probably a pipe dream now. But with the cost to the
federal government of Hurricane Katrina recovery
already being estimated at $100 billion, perhaps the wis-
dom of fiscal responsibili-
The old system ty will once again occur to

is a proven , If ",Congress and the
White House were hoping
failure, that big increases in
domestic spending, an
orgy of congressional pork
and tax cuts during a, major war effort wouldn't catch up
with them, the game is up.
Now it's just a matter of limiting the damage.
Because a combination of rising domestic spending,
expenditures for the war in Iraq that exploded way past
administration projections, and tax cuts (the first ever
during a time of war) quickly plunged the federal budget
back into the red.
Today, the government is back to using the Social
Security surplus to paper over the deficit, making future
debt problems for Social Security even worse.
Now comes Hurricane Katrina.
Of course, the whole point of a prudent fiscal policy is
that it allows you to be prepared for emergencies. If the
budget is balanced, or even close to it, temporary deficit
spending doesn't hurt so much.
Now, however, the government is simply going to add
the money for Katrina recovery to the .already staggering
pile of debt from its past borrowings.
Ironically, we can't say the government will have to
mortgage Social Security to pay.for Katrina - it was
already mortgaged to cover the deficit.

An editorial excerpt from the Pensacola News Journal.

If you're an Internet user, you've probably received at
least one unsolicited e-mail message in recent days ask-
ing you to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. By all
means, help - but be leery of those messages.
The FBI, consumer advocacy groups and others are
issuing urgent reminders for Americans to watch out for
the many scam artists who are on the prowl right now,
just as they are after every natural disaster.
Unfortunately, it appears that people who prey on
human misery are better organized and more technologi-
cally sophisticated than ever. They're using e-mail,
fraudulent Internet sites and - of course - old-fash-
ioned telemarketing calls to try to rip off donors and, in
turn, hurricane victims.
Last week, the FBI estimated that the number of new
Katrina-related Internet sites was at "2,300 and rising."
Some are legitimate, but the agency is pursuing com-
plaints against many that aren't.
Florida has two toll-free hot lines for residents to pass
along suspicions about disaster-related fraud. To report a
problem, call 1-800-646-0444 or 1-800-HELP-FLA.
Here's a sampling of advice offered by law enforce-
ment officials and others:
Give only to well-known, reputable groups such as the
American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and the United
Way.
Never follow an e-mail link to an Internet site for a
charity, even if the e-mail looks legitimate. Instead, care-
fully type in the group's Internet address yourself to
ensure that you land in the right place.
Ignore telephone calls or e-mails from unknown indi-


viduals and groups seeking donations or credit-card
numbers.

News-Sun, Sunday, September 18, 2005


EDITORIALS/OPI N IONS


Why all the fuss? There is a real good reason


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927


Editor:
I was speaking at the county
commissioner meeting last
.Tuesday as we discussed the
problems at the Lake Denton
Boat Ramp. I saw in the News-
Sun that I suggested they use a
video camera to help with the
problem.
I actually said much more
than that.
One thing I asked about was
why we couldn't have the same
DUI check points that we have
at other spots in the county,
held at the entrance to the area
in question. A large part of the
problem is the drinking and
drug use, which' is leading to
some of. the lawlessness and
lewd behavior that we: find,
fault with.
Yes, Preston Colby was wor-
ried that a child could be hit
and perhaps killed because of
the illegal parking and the
behavior. I wondered how this
would be any less tragic than if
one of these drunks left the area
and killed a carload of children
and their parents.
I suggested the use of a cam-
era because they stated that
when they called law enforce-
ment to report the illegal
behaviors the residents were
told that unless the officer,saw
the illegal activity, he could do
nothing about it. We all know
that when a video is shown
with a record of said illegal
activity, it will indeed hold up
in court.
The illegally parked vehicles
in the roadway are indeed a
danger, to the residents of the
area. I suggested that we put up
the proper signage stating no
parking on the right-of-way
and if they did it anyway, we
could then tow the vehicle ille-


^mm on the hope of snooz-
LOOK ing for a bit and stum-
bled out of bed, my
are usual pre-coffee fuzzy
Ware self.
Don, who was way
more alert than yours truly,
asked "Are you going to the
awards ceremony?"
He worded that question very
carefully. It was less than an
hour before the thing was sup-
posed to start. I had barely start-
ed my day. So Don, who is alert
just about any time he is awake,
did not ask me if I wanted to go.
I dodged the question. "Do
you think I should?" Big tacti-
cal mistake on my part.
Don responded thoughtfully,
"Well, if you ask James, he'll
say it's no big deal, but I think
you should go."
That was that, of course.
Don, having an office full of
patients to see, left the house,
and I was alone to- lay aside
thoughts of a quick return to
bed and to get ready as quickly
as I could. -
I don't move fast in the
morning. By the time I was any-
where near presentable, it was


well after 8 o'clock. There was
no time for coffee, which was
not putting me in the best of
moods. I gulped down a glass of
tomato juice, grabbed a moz-
zarella cheese stick to chomp
on the way, and jumped in the
van for the trip.
I realize by now you are
wondering if a) I love. my son
and b) I wasn't proud of him for
his accomplishments. Rest
assured I do love my child, and'
I am proud of him for doing
well in school despite the fact it
is not his favorite way to pass
his time. -If either wasn't the
case, I would have stayed
home.
But I couldn't shake some
annoyance. Why was I bother-
ing? He probably wouldn't see
me. If he saw me, he wouldn't
care. My day had been derailed.
Grumble, grumble, grumble.
I arrived late and slipped into
the back of the Smith Center. I
was in time to see James
receive his academic letter. I
noted where he returned to his
seat. At an opportune moment, I
slipped up behind him.
"Want me to take that?" I


asked him, indicating the letter.
"Sure," he answered, hand-
ing me the blue and white "S."
When people were dis-
missed, I managed to grab
James by his backpack. "Next
time, give me more notice," I
instructed.
"Come on, the morning of
the ceremony is plenty of time,"
he answered, grinning. I could-
n't think of a snappy response,
so I kissed his cheek. Before he
went on to class, he gave me a
kiss, with his classmates all
around us, and said, "See you
after school."
As I walked to my car, I
found myself smiling. Yeah, it
had been a mild hassle, but my
son had not seemed unhappy at
my presence and I had gotten a
kiss in front of his peers, a sign
he cares about me more than his
classmates.
Maybe that's why.

I asked the commissioners to
not.punish the responsible citi-
zens who are attempting to use
the lake but rather to stop the
ones who are breaking the laws
of our county and state. I
assume that the laws are to be
equally used on all citizens. So
can someone out there tell me
why we will allow a few people
to break the law at will? If we
simply move the behavior to a
poorer section of Avon Park,
how will this accomplish any-
thing other than create a prob-
lem for another group of
Highlands County residents?
I can't help but wonder why
we are so willing to -let a few

Benton? We need you to help
here a lot more than catching
speeders on U.S. 27.
We are told that it is difficult
to get a deputy out there while
the crimes are being committed.
However, if we had those DUI
check points I spoke of earlier,
then several deputies would
already be within a mile of the
boat ramp and could even drive
through the area at various
times and be able to control the
area with no problem.
I'm busy this weekend but I
plan to go out the following
weekend and tape the area with
my video camera. Td those who
would use the restroom in the
middle of the road and to those
who would litter and trash up
the area around the boat ramp, I
can only think of one thing to
say to them: "Smile for the
camera."



I just get

and trying to pick up the pieces
of our homes and communities

come close to comparing with
what the souls in New Orleans,
Biloxi, Miss., Mobile, Ala., and
other surrounding areas on the
gulf coast are enduring and will
endure for years to come.

nights during which I couldn't
sleep a wink; standing in lines
for ice or water for hours; days
of hot, back-breaking work to
remove debris from my yard
and the yards of others. I think
back on it all now and realize
how fortunate we all were.
This catastrophe should
serve as a much needed, long
overdue wake-up call for us all
- myself at the top of the list.
Witnessing this whole event as
it unfolds from a distance, I've
contemplated trying to find a
way to take my family and go to
the aid of these afflicted souls
who are in such dire need. It is
so easy for us to take for grant-
ed all that we have.
But what truly infuriates me
the most is news of those who,
wittingly or unwittingly, have
been stirring up contention and
strife in the midst of such suf-
fering and chaos by claiming or
implying in any way, shape or
form, that the lack of immediate
and efficient rescue and relief
had to do with racism or socio-
economical prejudice.

FRUSTRATED
Continued from 2D
regions plowed over by Katrina: the' fact that the
hurricane was so powerful; the areas so heavily
populated; the ground so far below sea level: and
the levees ill equipped to handle a hurricane
stronger than a category three (if that), all factored
into what has transpired.
Communication has also played a role, in the
sense that such a major endeavor requiring such a
tremendous amount of man power and resources
from people from all corners of the globe cannot
be accomplished without a great deal of commu-
nication, which always allows plenty of room for
miscommunication (ever played the game
"Telephone?"), not to mention a lot of time for
needed communication to occur, plans to be
made, and efforts orchestrated effectively.
I will admit that racism and socio-economic
prejudice exist, even now in 2005. You'd think
that it would have been eradicated by now; but I'd
be a fool or a liar to deny that it still remains.
The thing that most bothers me about it though
is that 'I feel the existence of. such stupid and
unnecessary thinking is perpetuated during times
such as this when exactly the opposite should be
true. We should all come together and stop look-
ing for reasons to judge one another and cast
blame. We should use times of calamity to try to
bring people closer together. When times are
tough is precisely when the true colors (those that
exist within us and cannot be seen externally),
come to the surface and overshadow our outer
colors.
Role models and leaders in our country such as
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Kayne West, the
Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans, as well as
many other publicly prominent black people of
stature, should not be perpetuating the prejudice
that simply continues eating away at the fabric of
our culture, by being so quick to blame things on
white people simply because of past grievances.
Though their grievances are real, and certainly
not all that far in the past, I think that to continue
to gauge opinions about people today and look for
prejudicial fault under every stone is not only
unfair to those who do so, but in turn the whole of
our population. It is also detrimental to the cause
at hand, only taking us backward, causing us to
lose whatever ground has been made in overcom-
ing the centuries' old problems, which we as a
nation have striven to dispose of for oh, so many
years.
I know that as a human being, with all the emo-
tions and other complexities that entails, it is very


easy to allow our past hurts to impact our current
views or perceptions.
After all the saying, "Fooled me once, shame
on you; fooled me twice, shame on me," was
coined for good reason.
To forget about our past as if it had never
occurred would be detrimental to our present as
well as our future. However, I do believe that
there is possible, and should be obtained, a bal-
ance between remembering and learning from our
painful past and holding onto it as if it were some
medal of honor to be polished every day and
handed down from one generation to another.
People hurt each other. That is a fact of human-
ity common to all people since the beginning of
time. We all get hurt by others and we all will con-
tinue to be hurt by others. (be it those of our own
ethnicity or of another). But let's stop passing the
buck, especially before we have all of the facts.
The fact in this travesty is that people weren't
prepared. People didn't, for whatever reason (be it
ill health, lack of resources, or whatever), heed
the warnings and evacuate the area; people could-
n't seem to get it together and come up or imple-
ment a plan and/or the means to effectively offer
assistance in a timely manner and consequently
people suffered more than necessary, and are still
suffering from the devastation of this act of God
(or Mother Nature, whichever way you choose to
look at it).
Now what needs to be done is for everyone to
pitch in and do whatever they can, be it small or
large, to make the most of a situation that will
never, no matter what is done or by whom, be able
to undo the pain and suffering or prevent more of
the same. But if we view this as an opportunity to
somehow, in any way possible, move closer to
becoming a country of unity by lessening racial
and political barriers and the feuding that keep us
so divided, we may just see that we are all the
same. As the most popular and bestselling book of
all time, The Holy Bible, says, "A house divided
against itself cannot stand."
We are all alike in spite of our differences, no
matter what color our skin or how much equity we
have (if any). We are all living, breathing, feeling
souls. Let's take this opportunity to look at one
another as members of the same team - the fami-
ly of God and the inhabitants of this earth.
I could be wrong but I'd be willing to bet that
if Martin Luther King Jr. were alive today he
would say something along the same lines (only
more profound and eloquent). We just need to
change our attitudes - all of us.
Race, creed, color, economical status, whatever
our differences, let's stop bickering and start try-
ing to believe the best of one another. There will


always be some had apples, but let's not allow
them to spoil th : rest of the bunch.
Lastly, I'd like to point out something that
many seem to either choose not to notice or are
simply unaware of.
In our country, the United States of America (a
title that unfortunately is not an accurate descrip-
tion in light of how we so often treat one another),
there is an order of authority and responsibility
that allows us to enjoy the rights and freedoms
that set us apart from much of the world. That
order first places responsibility on individuals.
In this case, the responsibility to prepare for the
hurricane and to evacuate the area was that of the
people living in harm's way. Next the responsibil-
ity falls on the local law enforcement and leaders
of each individual town or community. After that,
the responsibility goes to the state officials. And
lastly, only when all else has failed, does it find its
way onto the laps of the federal government.
(Though this system of government may in some
cases lead to delays and complications because of
the time it requires to progress from one link of
the chain of command to the next, it mostly works
well to -protect the rights of individuals and the
states within which they reside.)
In other words, due to the fact that we have a
governing- system that offers, at least in theory,
independence and liberty to all people, to point
fingers at the president or any federal department,
when the city of New Orleans had first responsi-
bility to its own people to provide for their safety
and their needs, and the state of Louisiana second,
and they failed to do all that they could to take
care of their own, they should be first on the list
to be scrutinized and held accountable.
School buses and other public transportation
vehicles that are now under water and useless
were not used to evacuate anyone before the
storm came. Why is that?
But what's done is done; the past cannot'be
changed; so let's all work on solving present prob-
lems and trying to learn something from this hard
lesson that will prepare us for the future. After all,
even Mayor Nagin stated in a televised special
recently, "There's plenty of blame to go around."
Who among us could honestly and without
question say that we could have handled such an
enormous and tragic disaster perfectly and with-
out error? Certainly not me.

Bush: Emergency plans for all

American cities to be scrutinized


By NEDRA PICKLER
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - President
Bush is urging Congress to
approve a massive reconstruc-
tion program for the hurricane-
ravaged Gulf Coast and promis-
ing that the federal government
will review the disaster plans of
every major American city.
The government failed to
respond adequately to Hurricane
Katrina, Bush said Thursday
night from storm-damaged New
Orleans as he laid out plans for
one of the largest reconstruction
projects ever. The federal gov-
ernment's costs could reach
$200 billion or beyond.
The president, who has been
dogged by criticism that
Washington's response to the
hurricane was slow and inade-
quate, said the nation has "every
right to expect" more effective
federal action in a time of emer-
gency such as Katrina, which
killed hundreds of people across
five states, forced major evacua-
tions and caused untold property
damage.
Disaster planning must be a
"national security priority," he
said, while ordering the
Homeland Security Department
to undertake an immediate
review of emergency plans in
every major American city.
"Our cities must have clear
and up-to-date plans for respond-
ing to natural disasters and dis-
ease outbreaks or a terrorist
attack, for evacuating large num-
bers of people in an emergency
and for providing the food and
water and security they would
need," Bush said.
He acknowledged that gov-
ernment agencies lacked coordi-
nation and were overwhelmed
by Katrina and the subsequent
flooding of New Orleans. He said
a disaster on this scale requires
greater federal authority-and a
broader role for the armed
forces. He ordered all Cabinet
secretaries to join in a compre-
hensive review of the govern-
ment's faulty re.p''.nsr.
.."When..'iledderal.govern-
ni alnt fa&'l-'et s -' i an obli
- gation, I as president am respon-


sible for the problem, and for the
solution," Bush said, looking into
the camera that broadcast his
speech live on the major televi-
sion networks from , historic
Jackson Square in the heart of
the French Quarter. "This gov-
ernment will learn the lessons of
Hurricane Katrina."
Bush faced the nation at a vul-
nerable point in his presidency.
Most Americans .disapprove of
his handling of Katrina, and his
job-approval rating has been
dragged down to the lowest point
of his presidency also because of
dissatisfaction with the Iraq war
and rising gasoline prices. He
has struggled to demonstrate
the same take-charge leadership
he displayed after the Sept. 11
terror attacks four years ago.
Aaron Broussard, president of
Jefferson Parish near New
Orleans, was happy with Bush's
speech. "Mainly he gave hope,
and right now in this area people
need hope more than anything,"
he told CBS' "The Early Show."


In his speech, the president
called for a congressional investi-
gation besides the administra-
tion's self-examination.
Democrats want an independent
probe similar to the one conduct-
ed by the Sept. 11 Commission
instead of reviews that will be led
by the Republican-controlled
Congress and White House.
The president said the federal
government will pay most of the
costs of rebuilding the Gulf
Coast, including New Orleans.
"There is no way to imagine
America without New Orleans,
and this great city will rise
again," Bush said.
House Speaker Dennis
Hastert (R-Ill.), speaking after
the president's address,
acknowledged that the recovery
programs would add to the
nation's debt. GOP leaders are
open to suggestions from law-
makers to cut government
spending elsewhere, but the task
is urgent, he said.

Devils pull off miracle rally


Come back from 18-0

deficit to shock Bulldogs


---y SCOTT DRESSEL,
�s.t .a m * r.-( '
AVON PARK - If Friday
night is any indication, it's
going to be a season to remem-
ber in Avon Park.
The Red Devils quickly for-
got about a first half in which
they could do almost nothing
right and pulled off an unbe-
lievable rally, storming back
from. an 18-0 deficit to take a
20-18 victory over visiting
Frostproof and improve to 4-0.
"I can't take too many
more of them, or I'm Avo
going to have a heart
attack. I told them when a
we came in the locker Fros
room that's the stuff
hometown heroes are I
made of right there," Up
Avon Park head coach Home
T.C. Cousins said. "Once game
again, they found a way Poinci,
to win."
The momentum swing could-
n't have come at a better time
for the Devils. The Bulldogs led
18-6 and were 5 yards away
from what looked like a game-
clinching score with just under
nine minutes left in the game,
sitting on first-and-goal. But
tailback Carlton Thomas, who
finished with 207 yards on 22
carries, was hit hard and fum-
bled, and Rafael Johnson fell on
the ball at the 2.
The Devils then proceeded to
march 98 yards on 11 plays,
getting most of it on runs of 18,
22 and 20 yards from Kaneef
Caldwell. With 5:10 left in the
game, Johnson walked into the


end zone on-a 3-yard pas from
'-TK X Hill, and MNich.e!
Wagoner's point-after kick
pulled the Devils to within five
points.
The defense forced a punt,
giving the Devils the ball at
their 42 with 2:39 left. Johnson
caught a 21-yard pass on the
second play of the drive, but the
most critical play came on
fourth-and-seven from the 27,
when Taiwan Perry turned a
simple curl pattern into a 22-
yard gain, making three
Park defenders miss him in the
O0 process, to set the Devils
up on the 5.
proof "Our go-to play is the
8' curl because it's hard to
defend in high school,"
Next Cousins said. "We had
oming him run a 10-yard curl
against and we told Taiwan to get
ana to the (first-down) sticks,
but then he spun and
broke a couple of tackles ... a
huge play. That's what we
expect our seniors to do."
Two plays later, Hill faked to
Caldwell and handed the ball to
Johnson on a tight end reverse,
and the senior cut back and
dove into the end zone with
46.6 seconds left in the game to
put the Devils in front.
"I saw an opening and cut
back," said Johnson, who
caught eight passes for 99
yards. "It was a little crease, but
I knew I could reach out and get
(the score). The line blocked
well on that."
The success of Caldwell in
the second half - when he


gained 76 of his 102 yards -
set up the game-winning play,
Johnson said.
S"We were running lead right
the whole time, so they thought
Kaneef was going to get it, but
then I came back and got it. It


was a good play."
The Bulldogs made things
interesting in the final seconds,
but Marcus Wyche's intercep-
tion of Cedric Cox's despera-

Gruden's


brother


arrested
Associated Press
TAMPA - Jay Gruden, the
younger brother of Tampa Bay
Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden
and a part-time assistant coach
with the team, was arrested for
drunken driving early Friday,
the Hillsborough County
Sheriff's Office said.
.Jay Gruden, 38, was stopped
at about 2:30 a.m. by a deputy
who saw him weaving and
driving erratically, sheriff's
spokeswoman Debbie Carter
said.
"When (the deputy)
approached the driver, he
detected an odor of alcohol,"
Carter said. "The driver had
glassy eyes, slurred speech and
when he exited the vehicle he
was unsteady on this feet."

game.
Down a touchdown with two
minutes to play in the first half,
Lake Placid recovered a fumble
on Tampa Catholic's 40-yard
line. The Green Dragons
moved the ball all the way
down the field and looked like
they might score and tie the
game.
On third-and-10 on the 15-
yard line, quarterback Quay
Crenshaw ran to the comer of
the end zone and tried to get out
of bounds, but officials ruled
that time expired.
"There was three seconds on
the clock when the whistle
blew," Maddox said. "The guy
up there keeping the clock
said, 'There's two seconds,
there's two seconds,' but they
� waved it off."
Lake Placid finally got on
the board in the third quarter
after George Rasmussen picked
off a pass and returned it. 30
yards to the 2-yard line.
Fullback Brent Bierman
plowed it in, and Crenshaw ran
for a two-point conversion to
put the Green Dragons up 8-7.
Tampa Catholic got the
game-winning touchdown with
5:42 -to go when quarterback
Dickie Delama found receiver
Joey Lauteria in the comer of
the end zone. Lake Placid had
one last drive that began on its
own 27-yard line and got all the
way to Tampa Catholic's 9-
yard line before Crenshaw
threw an incomplete pass in the
end zone on fourth down.
"We still are not disciplined
enough in big situations of the
ball games," Maddox said.
"Kids want to do things the
way they want to do them
instead of the way they've been
taught. It happens over and
over and over again.
We have one guy miss a
block - a key block -- on every
offensive big situation. And it's
just discipline. We teach them
what to do. We show them what
to do. We go over it on film.
They get in the game and they
just lose it."
The Green Dragons inter-
cepted Delama twice and
recovered three fumbles.
Crenshaw led Lake Placid
with 43 yards on the ground.
The senior completed three of
seven passes for 74 yards with-
out an interception. Running
back O.J. Williams was held to
just 18 yards on 12 carries, and
Bierman had 40, yards on 13
carries.
"The bottom line is if we had
done the things that we prac-
ticed," said Maddox, "we
should have won by a couple
touchdowns. It's just the truth.
"We're good enough but we
just can't seem to do it when it
counts. When it's do or die, we
always die."

a foul-up on a kickoff return as
mistakes that hurt his team.
"We're tired. We cramped,
we're tired and we'rd out of
shape. They played hard,
though."
Anyone who left at halftime
would never have believed
Avon Park could have come
back to win, because it seemed
the Devils could do nothing
right for the first 24 minutes.
From dropped passes to costly
penalties to a player getting
ejected, it was a nightmare of a
half for the home team.
Thomas intercepted Hill's
pass on Avon Park's first offen-
sive play of the game and
returned it 31 yards for a score.
Then, his 55-yard run set up the
Bulldogs' next score for a 12-0
lead midway through the first
quarter, and it looked like the
Bulldogs (1-1) were on their
way to a rout.
"That first half, it was like
everything was falling apart,"
Cousins said. "We weren't get-
ting any calls; we weren't get-
ting any bounces. We'd have
long drives on offense and then
shoot ourselves in- the foot, but
we told our kids at halftime that
we're a second-half football
team ... and that we were going
to come out and win the second
half, and we did.
"Our kids played their tails

hard win."
Lowe, who took the bulk of
the carries for Sebring after T.J.
Williams was injured earlier in
the week, rushed for 52 yards
on the night while Sebring's
defense finished with nine total
sacks, holding the Pirates to
minus 5 yards rushing.
The win somewhat eased the
pain of a 12-penalty night for
the Streaks, who only gained 26
more yards on offense than they
lost due to infractions. But he
Pirates didn't benefit from
those mistakes, racking up 89
penalty yards of their own.
"I'll put it this way: It's good
that we won. I'm happy we
won. But we've got to fix those
things," Hamlin said. "We can't
do that week-in and week-out.
We can't play with the miscues
that we had. (It's) a great win,
but we've got to fix those mis-
takes.
"But like I said, we had so
many obstacles to overcome
with the penalties, and we did."
Sebring's first set of obsta-
cles came on their first drive of
the game, a 12-play march that
came up empty, primarily due
to four penalties. The most dev-
astating foul came when Lowe
weaved through' traffic and
found the end zone from 19
yards out, only to be called
back on a holding flag.
After quarterback A. C.
Wilson scrambled for 15 yards
to get back to the line of scrim-
mage, the Streaks then coughed
up the ball two plays later with-
out salvaging any points.
Sebring's defense kept the
zeroes on the board, blocking a
25-yard field goal during
Pasco's ensuing drive.
Sebring then had another
golden chance to score with 24
seconds left in the half when
Johnson fumbled the snap at the
Pirates' 19 and Sebring's Austin
Andrews pounced on it.
The first play of the ensuing
drive put the Streaks at the goal

followed right on cue, forcing
Hamlin to settle for a Paul
Ashley field goal.
Neither team saw the prom-
ised land until Lowe's scamper
closed the door.
"After the Palmetto game I
told the guys 'Hey, we've got to
start fast, even though we had a
chance to come back and win it
last week. But by starting fast,
it puts pressure on the other
team,'" Hamlin said after
watching his team outgain the
Pirates 124-39 in the first half.
"And we did that, not so much
as far as points (go), but we
moved the ball (into good) field
position and we kept them from
.having a short field."
Sebring now returns to
Firemen's Field on a high note
after three consecutive road
games.
"To get home is nice, and
we've got a district game
against Hardee so, we've got to
be at our best," Hamlin said.


Way back in 1984, a very
different kind of bass was
introduced into south Florida's
waterways.
At the time, the population
of exotic fish, such as Oscars
and spotted tilapia were threat-
ening the streams, canals and
lakes in the area. The Game
and Fish Commission decided,
after years of study, to release
several thousand butterfly pea-
cock bass to help control the
exotics.
Although called a peacock
bass to enhance its game fish
status, it is really a cichlid. The
peacock bass went to work
immediately after stocking and.
diminished the threat from the
exotics. They are aggressive
eaters and grow very fast, put-
ting on a pound or more in just
their first year.
The peacock bass is a beau-
tiful fish, sporting iridescent
colors of green, orange, blue
and yellow that are unmatched
in most other game fish. While
there are four distinct species,
there are possibly a dozen or
more varieties carrying differ-
ent color patterns throughout
South America.
Peacocks will attack almost
anything in the way of other
fish or artificial lures. When
fishing for these colorful fish, a
fast and lively retrieve is a
must. They usually attack a
lure in a very vicious manner,
even more so than our large-
mouth bass.
Once hooked, they put up a
real battle, jumping high out of
the water at times and making
several runs before they can be
subdued enough to bring them
to the net.
We don't have peacock bass
in our local waters despite the

Then, to Alan's horror, the

In the ultimate nod to these
shut-ins, ESPN recently ran a
series of commercials that fea-
tured bimbos just as interested
in sporting minutiae as the guy

entire social calendar around

just can't survive north of
Broward County and the
Miami area. They are a great

Conservation Commission
(FWC) scientists have teamed
up with University of Florida
and U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service (USFWS) researchers
to gain a better understanding
of largemouth bass virus
(LMBV).
LMBV appears to be widely
distributed throughout Florida
and FWC research indicates
largemouth bass have tested
positive for the presence of
LMBV or for antibodies
against it in all of 16 fish pop-
ulations tested within the state
since 1999. The study ranged

Sporting News has long been
in decline, but when the Bible
of Baseball squeezes its team
reports to put in keeper league
tips, I shudder for my profes-

Sports writers, in fact, make
up a large number of the fanta-
sy geeks I know, and I can
recall a few nauseating conver-
sations with editors of my
own. I remember one of them
speaking in very grim terms
about a colleague of mine who
had abandoned their team mid-
season to focus on, oh, say, the
actual sports he was covering.
Only now, some reporters
are being hired specifically to
cover fantasy sports, like
ESPN's Eric Karabell. So after
years of work in the field and a
degree in journalism, I now
have the pleasure of realizing I
should have instead been

from Lake Seminole near the

Everglades canals in southern
Florida.
It is one of over 100 viruses
that affect fish but not warm-
blooded animals. Its origin is
unknown, but it is related to a
virus found in frogs and other
amphibians. It is nearly identi-
cal to a virus isolated in fish
imported to the U.S. for-the
aquarium trade.
In virtually all cases, fish
tested in Florida waters have
been clinically healthy, lacking
signs of viral disease. That is
good news.
FWC scientists at the Eustis
Fisheries Research Laboratory
and UF scientists launched a
study in which 98 largemouth
bass were inoculated with
LMBV. Also, 52 control fish
were "sham-inoculated" with
culture medium only (no virus)
and 20 unchallenged "sentinel"
fish were placed in tanks along
with the test fish.
The fish were held at room
temperature and elevated tem-
perature to simulate the condi-
tions found in the wild during
the summer, when LMBV-
associated die-offs have been
reported. Preliminary results
indicate all of the virus-chal-
lenged fish develop antibodies
to the virus. In addition, a
much more severe disease
response occurred in virus-
challenged fish at the elevated
temperature.
FWC and UF researchers
will try to learn the signifi-
cance of these findings with
further laboratory and field
studies.

F formerly known as a benchmark for

"Metal Slug" franchise has made its way to
Xbox in a double dose.
Also released for PS2 earlier this year,
"Metal Slug 4 &

which are, as always, hugely imaginative,
but hopelessly homely pixels and sprites

some freshly minted supplemental art and
sound). That seems a shame considering
the graphical horsepower of the Xbox.
You might recall that neither of the two
games lasted more than an hour from start
to finish, as befitting the presumed balance


Contrary to what the title suggests, f "
Taito's "Graffiti Kingdom" is not about
the paint-spraying counter culture,
though there is a lot of painting. It's actu- .

and other times obnoxious cartoon-like
adventure that has you drawing and painting your way through a cheesy king-
dom, sloppily or diligently rendering your own characters (or modifying stock
ones) and bringing them to life (they go 3D automatically), scrawling out ad-hoc
appendages to help you along (chasm in the way? Draw some wings!).
You'll end up with an arsenal of scribbled creatures, harnessing new powers
and attributes for each along the way much akin to those trading-card battle
games. It's quite bizarre; a rare gem that offers a lot of long-term doodled duel-
ing as well as a short-but-fun platform-hopping, puzzle-solving, coin-collecting,
boss-bashing adventure.
The whole process of drawing something and then assigning movement and
a punching/kicking/fire-breathing combat function to it and its
limbs/wings/wheels (if any) can be a little clunky but it's rewarding just the
same, because it's all yours.
Gameplay doesn't push any envelopes or cut any edges - it feels dated out of
the gate - but considering the novelty of it all (not to mention the "value" pric-
ing), it's all good.

News and developments from the game industry
In the old days, it was a strategically self-inflicted gunshot
wound, self-imposed exile to Canada or maybe a self-styled
penchant for cross-dressing that could get you out of the
army These days, in Singapore at least, playing videogames
can net the same results.
A recent story on AllHeadlineNews.com reports that a
Singaporean has received permission to defer his military
obligation (for a couple of months, at least) in order to com-
pete in the World Cyber Games, an annual international
videogame festival of competitions and tournaments hosted
in some 70 countries.
"In line with the Government's support for sports, culture
and the arts," explains one official, "the Ministry of Defense
will consider granting one-time deferments for pre-enlistees
who are selected to represent Singapore at prestigious inter-
national sports and cultural events."
Thus, 20-year old Stanley Aw will be postponing his other-
,wise mandatory national service duty by nearly two months
as he competes in the World Cyber Games.
