Verdict in ...



All four guilty


Etheredge turns over table,
handcuffed in court

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - After two hours deliber-
ating the SouthTrust Bank robbery case,
jurors returned guilty verdicts, for all
four defendants.
Samuel Etheredge started getting agi-
tated as his companions' verdicts were
read.
As the clerk read Robert Lee Vann's
verdict, one of the defendant's mothers
began to cry out. Etheredge cursed and
flipped over the fold-out table in front of
him, along with all the attorneys' papers
on it.
Two dozen Highlands County sher-
iff's deputies, bailiffs, and plain-clothes
officers moved in, took Etheredge to the
floor, handcuffed him and walked to
holding cells outside the courtroom.
Meanwhile, codefendants Vann,

Stepfone Vadle Buckle Jr. and Ednol
Antonio Hanna III were sat back into
their seats and told to stay put. Buckle's
grand-aunt Delores Williams, who testi-
fied in the case to allegations of deputies
sharing testimony, called to him to "Be
still, Step."
Meanwhile, Vann's mother wailed,
"No! Help me, Jesus. My baby's gone."
Vann was bent over in his chair, fight-
ing tears.
Bailiffs ordered family members to
come to order, and Circuit Court Judge
Olin Shinholser threatened to clear the
courtroom if they didn't. Hanna and
Buckle were removed, as were some
family members. Hanna's mother, also
brought to tears, remained in the court-,
room.
The audience could hear defendants
banging on holding cell doors.
The clerk continued to read the ver-
dict, then Shinholser polled the jurors.
The vote was unanimous. All four
were found guilty of robbing the

Transplant calls for



cell phone collection


By RIC LILENBERG
N .v,- - ",. i orrespondent
WEST PALM BEACH - In nearly every way,
8-month-old Kimya Jerido is a typical baby girl,
happy, bright, and full of energy, but she may not
live long enough to enjoy the childhood she
deserves.
This little girl was born without the bile ducts
her liver needs to keep her body healthy and des-
perately needs a liver transplant.
Her family and their friends across the state are
working hard to raise enough money to save
Kimya Jerido's life, but time is quickly running
out.
The Jerido family is not asking for money
from anyone, but they have hooked up with the
Children's Organ Transplant Association. In this
program donated old cellular telephone puts $3 in
Kimya Ny'Shae Jerido's liver transplant account.
In Highlands County, Kimya Jerido's uncle,
Lake Placid High School teacher and coach
Jimmie Adkins, is coordinating the cell phone
collection, with help from Darrell Heckman and
Marie Wilson, deans of students at nearby Lake
Placid Middle School.
Heckman and Wilson plan to throw a pizza
party for the homeroom that collects the most cell
phones by the end of September.


Kimya Jerido's mother and father, Kim and
Jerry Jerido, would love to see their infant daugh-
ter survive to understand her condition.at birth, or
even be able to pronounce it: eiliary artesia. That
is the medical term for this potentially fatal liver
problem.
"She was born without the common bile ducts
and that has caused scar tissue in her liver," her
mother explained. "The doctors attempted a sur-
gery called 'kasai' to see if they could go in to get
drainage from her liver, but they couldn't," she
added slowly as an afterthought. "So," she took a
breath and said, "they removed her gall bladder,
because her gall bladder was damaged."
Following. this exploratory operation, doctors
advised a liver transplant.
While Kimya giggled and played in the back-
ground, her mother reflected on her first time as
a mother and shared sonme pciorn',l thoughts.
"It's been crazy," she said and smiled. ."It's
been hard, but, you know, I've. been getting
through it."
Her first child only 8 months old and suddenly
facing a liver transplant, the typical young moth-
er who looks forward to the precious, new life
simply said, "This is something I never expect-

Five semi-finalists chosen



from Heartland Idol contest


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - The historic Circle was filled with the
sound of music Thursday night.
It was the second round of the second annual
Heartland Idol competition.
With Rooter Rush, a local disc jockey and on-air
personality with the Cohan Radio Group, as the mas-
ter of ceremonies, nine singers took turns singing a
cappella before five judges and an audience of about
100.
Some sung country, some sung pop, some sung
Broadway tunes.
By the end of the evening, five had been selected to
move on to the semi-finals, which will be Nov. 3. They
were Tiffany Elliott, Rebekah Haas, Melissa Harper,
James Lear and Timika Scott.
These singers join five other contestants who were
selected Sept. 1. Those winners were Matt Christian,
Cris Cwalinski, Tatiana Maysonet, Nicole Milliken
and Sarah Pelham.
Two more preliminary rounds are still to be held
Oct. 6 and 20.
A total of 20 singers will then compete in the semi-


finals, and 10 will be selected to sing in the final com-
petition, to be Nov. 12, as part of the Highlands Art
League's "12 Hours of Art & Community."
The judges score singers on a 25-point system - up
'to 10 points for vocal ability, up to 10 points for stage
presence, and a possible five extra points for costume.
A perfect score would be 25 points.
The contest can have surprising results. Last year's
winner, Nelly Guzman, has moved to New York City
where she is auditioning for professional productions.
Diana Hirsch, of the Downtown Merchants &
Professional Association and a founder of the event,
wants people to. know there is still plenty of time to
enter the competition.
First-time contestants pay a $10 entry fee. Repeat
contenders need only pay a $5 entry fee.
Singers must be 18 years of age or older, and may
only sing solo. In the preliminary rounds contestants
sing without musical back-up. During the final compe-
tition singers will be accompanied by music provided
by Western Pleasure Karaoke.
There will be five prizes awarded at the finals:
$2,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place, $500

Academy students travel on an errand of mercy


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK - As
Hurricane Katrina moved
inland, leaving devastation in
its wake, the Seventh-Day
Adventist Church's Southern
Union activated its Adventist
Team Services and responded
to the crisis.
The teams are part of an
emergency response system,
and operate out of Orlando.
At Walker Memorial
Academy, an Adventist school
at 1410 W. Avon Blvd., the 10th
grade rose to the occasion, vol-
unteering to help on the ground
in Mississippi.
Led by the school's chaplain,
Tom Hayes, and its youth pas-
tor, Tom Baker, 22 students
boarded a bus Sept. 10 and trav-
eled to Lumberton, Miss., south
of Hattiesburg.
There, at the Bass Memorial
Academy, another Adventist
school, they joined other
Adventist teams from schools
all over the south,
The Walker Memorial stu-
dents arrived at about 1:30
Sunday morning, eastern time.
After a five-hour rest, they went
immediately to work.
Their first assignment was to
go down to Waveland, a small
community on the Gulf Coast,
which had been wiped out by
the storm.
There wasn't a building
standing within a quarter mile


of the beach, and damage was
tremendous even further inland,
Hayes said. There was no elec-
tricity or running water when
they arrived.
FEMA was not set up, Hayes
said,. There was confusion on
the ground, -and communication
was scanty.
For example, truck loads of
clothes and emergency supplies
arrived from out of state, only
to be dumped in piles because
there was no way to sort or
deliver them.
In fact, Hayes reported the
Adventist response was so rapid
and organized that FEMA rep-
resentatives stopped by to take
notes and ask questions.
A central warehouse had
been set up in Lumberton, from
which supplies were delivered
to local distribution centers.
The Walker Memorial team
spent its first day in Waveland
working at the distribution cen-
ter set up in a supermarket park-
ing lot, across the street from
the police station. Both the store
and the station had been
destroyed in the storm.
The students sorted and
handed out supplies or directed
traffic all day long. Cars were
lined up for about four miles.
The students also put together.
"to go" packages made up of
food items to last a family three
days.
Some people came to collect
supplies for whole neighbor-

hoods, because so many others
were without transportation.
"I never felt so appreciated,"
student Marlyn Lastimosa
wrote in her journal of the trip.
What amazed her was that
everyone who drove through
the supply line smiled at her.
"It was like a huge puzzle
with a bunch of little pieces,"
Lindsey Beerbower, another
student, wrote of the operation.
What amazed her was that some
people who had lost everything,
still insisted on putting money
into the donation box.
On Monday the team stayed
in Lumberton, 90 miles north of
Waveland, where they helped
distribute supplies, including
emergency packages of essen-
tial personal items they had
made up and brought with
them.
On Tuesday the team worked
in the kitchen in Lumberton,
and on Wednesday in the
kitchen in Waveland, provided
meals for volunteers and Red
Cross workers. In just those two
days the Walker team fed more
than 2,750 people three meals a
day.
They worked in a kitchen set
up in a tractor-trailer where it
was 128 degrees inside. Baker
and Walker Memorial teacher
Cassie Cook did all the cook-
ing, but the students did all the
prep work and clean-up. The
work was exhausting, Hayes
said.
Because there was no run-
ning water, buckets had to be
filled by hand, and chlorine was
added to sanitize the water.
Because there was no elec-
tricity, every can had to be
opened by hand. Hayes reports
the students doing that work
had blisters on their hands by
the end of the day.
Wednesday the team also
ventured closer to the water-
front. Walker student Hans von
Walter reported what they saw.
"(It was) an incredibly sad
sight. I don't believe we saw a
single house standing, and sad
red Os marked the spots where
people had lost their lives trying
to ride out the storm."
Thursday the team worked at
the central warehouse sorting
supplies to be delivered to the
distribution center.
Friday they returned home.
The students worked non-
stop through the week. At night
they slept in the Bass Memorial
Academy gymnasium, which
was structurally sound, but
missing a wall that had caved in
during the storm.
One of the things that struck
Hayes deeply were the stands of
pine trees in Waveland, which
told of the devastation.
Branches 20 feet high were
filled with debris, and the
trunks, from the 20-foot mark
down had all turned brown,
damaged by the salt water that
had engulfed them.
Hayes spoke of the police
station across from the distribu-
tion center in Waveland, which
had been ruined in the flood.


Sun Room Clinic closes Oct. 1


News-Sun
SEBRING - Although the
Sun Room Clinic will close
Oct. 1, the clinic's volunteers
will assist clients through the
month of October in getting
applications completed for
other assistance.
In a memo written by Linda
Swenson, registered nurse and
volunteer clinic director, she
said clients will be helped by
appointment only. She said her
staff would help clients apply
for Medicare part D, card saver
and other assistance for medica-
tions.
Swenson said the clinic's
closure is due to the "inability
to function under the umbrella
of the health department by
Statute 110." She further said
the health department is unable
to fund or manpower oversee-
ing the clinic.
And, Swenson said, the clin-
ic lacks the funds and manpow-
er to make a transition to
become a clinic open to all
ages.
"We have been in operations
since 1992 and our reward has
been wonderful by serving a
senior group of citizens that
have become our extended fam-
ily.
"We are looking into other
avenues our seniors could bene-
fit from at this time. Thank you


to our family of clients, volun-
teers and staff for many won-
derful years together," Swenson
said.
There is no further word on
the future of the Sun Room


Senior Services Center, which
has. also been under scrutiny in
recent months after a number of
problems were revealed
through an audit of the center's
bookkeeping records.

Police officers and civilians
had taken refuge in it, he said.
As the flood waters began to
rise in the building, however,
everyone had to venture out
into the storm to find high
ground, or risk getting drowned
indoors.
Outside, there was a large,
rather ugly bush that blocked
the view of the road. The police
chief had marked it for the axe
before the storm.
But that night 14 people
escaping the filling police sta-
tion, grabbed hold of the bush,
which supported them for the
five hours the storm took to
pass.
Two of the people who had
survived that night, showed
Hayes where they had hung on.
The bush's bark had been worn
away at the places where they
had clung.
Now, Hayes said,, the bush
will not only survive the axe, it
is to be transplanted to the site
of the new police station as a
memorial and thank you.
The Walker Memorial trip
was so successful another is
planned for members of the
ninth grade. Sixteen students
and six sponsors will leave on
Oct. 2 and return Oct. 6.
The students will be putting
together emergency packs to
distribute there. Donations of

brushes, bug spray, sun block,

shampoo and other like items
may be brought to the school.

The Best Medicine Is
Prevention
Today, new imaging technologies
give doctors greater insight into the
human body. That means doctors can
also see signs of disease earlier than
ever before, when the disease is most
treatable.
This marvel of modern medicine
images your body's vital organs and
tissues. It captures your health from
the inside out, revealing build-up in
your coronary arteries, nodules in
your lungs and potential tumors in
your abdomen and pelvis.
It is recommended that people
between 20 and 40 undergo a physi-
cal examination, including some type
of cancer and cholesterol screening,
every three years. If you're over 40
this exam should be done every year.
Coronary Artery Calcium
Scoring (CACS):
Calcification in the coronary arteries is
the earliest indicator of heart disease.
CACS uses noninvasive, high-speed
computerized tomography (CT) to
scan your heart and detect calcium
deposits along the walls of arteries.
The test then produces a calcium
score that identifies your level of
deposits. Taking into account other
factors such as age, family history and
cholesterol level, your doctor uses that
score to measure your potential for
heart disease.


Gaining Peace of Mind,
just in Time
The results of your exam
represent peace of mind,
since early detection is key
to prevention.

CT Health scans and CACS
(Coronary Artery Calcium
Scoring) are self paid
exams not currently cov-
ered by insurance that pro-
vide you with onc of the
methods of health screen-
ing even if you have no
symptoms.

Considering over half the
people who died suddenly
of heart disease had no
symptoms, what you know
today can help you live a
healthier tomorrow.

For the good of the public


The most important rule in life from
God; The Golden Rule - Matthew 7:12
"So in everything, do to others what
you would have them do to you.".
I returned a week ago from a trip to
hurricane battered Mississippi where a
team of us from the sheriff's office,
public works and the Wauchula Police
Department responded to aid a county
in need of assistance. The area we went
to sustain some damage, though noth- COPS
ing like the costal counties had, they CHR
were certainly in need. We were there
to assist them in anyway that we could, Barry Se
knowing what it was like to try to oper-
ate a county that had gone weeks with-
out power and limited supplies. The
local government, not having gone through any-
thing this devastating before, was having differ-
ences of opinions and perspectives amongst
themselves. It was understandable since there
was a lot of aid going through their county to
more devastated areas, but not stopping to aid
their county.
Before being deployed to Mississippi, I like all
of you, watched helplessly as the citizens of New
Orleans in the Superdome seemed to be aban-
doned by our own government. It appeared that
no one \as coming to help them, and to some
'extent the,.iteren't..ln Mississippi. I noticed that,
t-- the government agencies differences of opinions
and perspectives crippled their ability to effec-
tively work together and the public was suffering
because of it. In Mississippi, New Orleans and
I'm sure in several other forgotten towns in that
region "the good of the public" did not appear to
be the main concern. In desperate times people
become self-preserving, but as public servants we
can't afford to allow that to happen.
President Bush even stated that laws need to be
amended so that federal response could happen
quickly without so many obstacles. Even the
president could see problems within the govern-
ment organization. I see to many times political
figures so concerned about how they are going to


SFOR
FIRST

chnable


look, what people are going to say
about how they handle situations and
other various selfish concerns that they
lose sight of the people they serve.
God wants us to love our neighbors
as we love ourselves. We all need to
keep God's commandments and put
others before our own selfishness. If
God is first in your life and all that you
do, this will become second nature. For
public servants like myself, the "good
of the public" will be served. 1 and the
others who volunteered to go to
Mississippi realized on this trip that"
above all we are public servants and
that we must be concerned about the


public when responding in times of
disaster as well as any other calls for assistance.
We all must put aside our differences and work
together to get the job done.
In discussing the events from last year, I know
all of us realized that improvements could be
made in our own community and between agen-
cies, even though we all worked exceptionally
well together last year to serve the public under
unprecedented circumstances. I have always
believed that we have a great community in
Hardee County and last year that was proven true
by everyone's response to our disaster, neighbor
helping neighbor unselfishly.:After.visiting other
areas, I know that our community is the best.
Next time, though we pray there will never be a
next time, we will do it that much better and the
"good of the public" will be served first and fore-
most.
I want to thank members of our team who vol-
unteered to respond, leaving their families to help
others and the personal sacrifices they made to
help those in need in Mississippi. God bless
them, their families, and the all the people who
have suffered because of this disaster.

SFCC honors students reflect on Constitution's impact


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The rights
and freedoms guaranteed in the
U.S. Constitution affect every
American on a daily basis.
Yet beyond their understand-
ing of a few of the most basic of
rights - to life, liberty, the pur-
suit of happiness, and freedom
of speech and religion - most
Americans know little about the
oldest living document in' the
world.
In 2004, Sen. Robert Byrd
(D-W.Va.) pushed a measure
through Congress that estab-
lished Constitution Day, Sept.
17, as a national observance,
commemorating the date when
the Constitution was signed, on
Sept. 17, 1787. The legislation
requires schools getting govern-
ment funding to mark
Constitution Day in some way.
At the Highlands Campus of
South Florida Community
College recently, the 15 stu-


dents in Pamela Hansen's
Honors American National
Government class observed
Constitution Day by forming
groups of two and three and
giving Microsoft Power Point
presentations explaining the
history and impact of eight of
the original 10 amendments to
the Constitution, collectively
known as the Bill of Rights.
In their research, they dis-
covered that freedom of speech
is not absolute, that some of the
seemingly archaic logic of the
Constitution is rooted in hun-
dreds of years of English law,
and that maintaining the bal-
ance of rights and powers -
between citizens and their gov-
ernment - is a task that bedevils
.he U.S. Supreme Court to this
day.
Of the entire Bill of Rights,,
the most famous amendment is
arguably the First, which grants
the right to freedom of speech,

U.S. Constitution as she makes her Constitution Day presentation to

South Florida Community College on Sept. 19.


religion, the press, and assem-
bly. The Second Amendment
guarantees the right to bear
arms. The Third, clearly rooted
in colonial days, protects citi-
zens from being forced to quar-
ter soldiers during peacetime.
The Fourth Amendment pro-
tects citizens from illegal
searches and seizures of their
property, while the Fifth pro-
vides that no one can be held for
capital crimes without indict-
ment, be tried twice for the
same offense, have property
taken without just compensa-
tion, or be forced to provide
self-incriminatory testimony.
Defendants indicted on criminal
charges are guaranteed the right
to a speedy trial by an impartial
jury in the Sixth Amendment.
The Seventh Amendment gives
the right to a trial by jury in
most common law cases.
The Eighth Amendment pro-
hibits citizens from being held
on excessive bail or being
charged excessive fines. The
Ninth Amendment holds one
person's constitutionally pro-
tected rights do not cancel out
another's, while the Tenth
Amendment assures that the
states hold any powers not
given to the federal government
in the Constitution.
Dana Buccelli, Chad
Colesack, and April Evans
spoke of controversial issues
that still arise today from the
First and Second amendments.
For example, as they pointed
out, the freedom of religion
clause is hotly debated when it
comes to providing military
chaplains to troops serving
overseas. While opponents
argue that the government is
illegally promoting religion by
employing chaplains, many sol-
diers assert that taking away

entation to Pamela Hansen's Honors American National Government class on Sept. 19 at South Florida
Community College. The class is observing the inaugural Constitution Day mandated by Congress.


their access to religious leaders
denies them the ability to prac-
tice their religion.
Megan Webb spoke on the
Third and Fourth amendments
on behalf of her partners, Marie
Ontermaa and Casandra
Rotroff. Webb pointed out that
the Third Amendment, regard-
ing the quartering of soldiers in
private homes, was the least lit-
igated of all the amendments in
the Bill of Rights.
That isn't the case with the
Fourth Amendment, governing
illegal searches and seizures, as
Webb noted in one particular
Prohibition Era case, .Olmstead
vs. U.S. The Supreme Court
ruled that a reputed bootleg-
ger's conversations had not
been illegally wiretapped when
he coordinated liquor sales in


Knights host flag ceremony presented by Civil Air Patrol


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The High-
lands County Composite
Squadron No. 314, of the Civil
Air Patrol presented a Flag
Ceremony to the Pope John
XXIII Council of the Knights
of Columbus. The ceremony
- took ,place at the Knights of
Columbus hall at 900 U.S. 27
N. inSebring, on Sept. 13.
The reason for the ceremony
was for the CAP to express its
appreciation to the Knights for
permitting them to hold their
meetings and store their equip-
ment at the Knights of
Columbus hall.
The cadets of the squadron
performed the presentation of
the new flag with military pre-
cision. Following the presenta-
tion, the cadets raised the col-
ors to full staff and then low-
ered it to half mast in memory
of the loss of life in New
Orleans as a result of Hurricane
Katrina.
The squadron was led by Lt.
Colonel Fran GJeockle and
cadet leader Airman 1 Class
Clarence Gochenour. The
cadets' presented the new flag
to the senior officers of the
Knights of Columbus, Grand
Knight John O'Sullivan,
Faithful -Navigator Michael
Basile and President of the
Columbiettes Alma Almeida.
A little known fact about the
CAP is that they are a U.S. Air
Force Auxiliary. In 1948
Congress established CAP as a
federally charted corporation
and charged with three primary
missions: aerospace education,
cadet programs and emergency
services. They are a real asset
to our community and the
nation.
The Knights of Columbus
are grateful to the CAP for their
thoughtfulness and skill with
which they performed the cere-
mony. The Knights are always
interested in supporting healthy
youth activities in Sebring and
Avon Park.

Aeromodelers

LAKE PLACID - The
Lake Placid Aeromodelers
radio control flying club will

to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at
the Lake Placid Aeromodelers
Field on Placid Lakes
Boulevard, one mile north of
State Road 70..
The club will offer radio
control flying demonstrations,

an office building - outside of
his home - to the private resi-
dences of his co-conspirators.
Lauren Pyle, Marissa
Szlosek, and Darren Whidden
touched on a recent controver-
sial Supreme Court case, Kelo
vs. New London, when they
discussed property rights as
enumerated in the Fifth
Amendment. In February, by a.
5-4 decision, the Supreme
Court ruled that the city of New
London, Conn., could seize 15
homes under eminent domain
laws and sell them to the private
New London Development
Corporation for commercial
development. The majority of
justices said that the govern-
ment had an interest in promot-
ing economic prosperity, while
the dissenters said the ruling
would put all privately owned
property up for grabs.
Research into the Sixth
Amendment led Pyle, Szlosek,
and Whidden to the Florida-
based case of Gideon vs.
Wainwright, in which the indi-
gent robber of a pool hall saw


his conviction overturned
because he could not afford to
hire an attorney to represent
him.
Julia Becerra and Nelly
Montoya discussed the Seventh
and Eighth amendments and
uncovered what can be the
Supreme Court's fluctuating
interpretations of the law. As
they noted, the court caused
Georgia to abandon the death
penalty when it ruled that it had
been "freakishly" and "wanton-
ly" imposed in the 1972 case of
Freeman vs. Georgia. Only
four years later, in Gregg vs.
Georgia, the court decided that
the death penalty was not "cruel
and unusual punishment."
"The Constitution is the old-
est living document in the
world and the most brief as
well," Hansen told her students.
"The framers wanted it to be a
living document that would
change over time as the nation
changed. Most people have
great respect for the
Constitution."

Touchton site selected proposed Jr. College


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Jan. 6, 1965.
The 100 acre site of The
Long Bay Ranch, donated by
the Touchton Estate, was
accepted Monday night by the
Highlands County School
Board as the site for the pro-
posed Highlands-Hardee Junior
College.
The selected site is located
on State Road 64 approximate-
ly one and one-half miles west
of Avon Park.
A state survey team inspect-
ed possible sites in Highlands
County in November, and in
their written report to the
Board, they gave a tentative
approval to the Touchton site,
subject to the completion of the
following:
1. Legislative authorization
may be obtained for a junior
college to serve their area.-
2. A legal description defin-
ing the exact boundaries of a
rectangular site must be provid-
ed.
3. Soil borings must be made


to determine the suitability of
the site for junior college build-
ings.
These requirements would
have been requested regardless
of which site was selected by
the Board. The only other
request made by the team was
that a reasonable assurance be
obtained. from the Federal
Aviation Agency and/or other
sources that the location of the
site in the approach zone to run-
way 90 constitutes no undue
safety hazards to the occupants
of the junior college and that
there are no FAA regulations
which would limit the size or
type of construction on this site.
The state site committee stat-
ed that the site selected should
be in Highlands County and in
the area which is generally
north and west of the city of
Sebrirg. This left only two sites
to be considered, the Touchton
site and the Maxcy site located
on U.S. 27 approximately three
and one-half miles south of
Avon Park. The survey team did


not give an evaluation study of
the Maxcy site as it was submit-
ted at the last minute, but did
look at it while they were mak-
ing the tour.
School superintendents and
school board members of
Highlands and Hardee Counties
attended the meeting Monday
night. Josh Albritton, chairman
of the Hardee County School
Board, said "The Touchton site,
if approved by the state legisla-
ture is the only site acceptable
to the officials of Hardee
County."
Henry Bailey, School Board
chairman for Highlands
County, told the group that until
m6ney was available for the
construction of the college, a
definite site did not have to be
selected and suggested that the
site selection be postponed.
Ted Cason of Sebring, a
Highlands School Board mem-
ber, said, "I can't vote on a site
as I have not viewed either
site."
R.L. Padgett, School Board
member from Avon Park,
moved that the Touchton site be
accepted; subject to the
approval of the legislature and
if they turn it down to look for
another site.
The motion was seconded by
E. Ray Wells of Avon Park.

GUILTY
Continued from 1A
point Jan. 7, then fled down
U.S. 27 toward Lake.Placid
where they were finally appre-
hended by law enforcement.
Shinholser then had Hanna
and Buckle returned one at a
time to hear jurors polled.
Etheredge opted not to return.
For all, the vote was unani-
mous.
Etheredge, 17, was found
guilty of robbery with a
firearm; burglary of a con-
veyance; theft, which included
a motor vehicle; trespass of a
dwelling, and resisting officers
without violence.
Hanna, 17, was found guilty
of being a principal to robbery
with a firearm, though he did
not himself possess a firearm in
the robbery; burglary of a con-
veyance; theft, which included
a motor vehicle; resisting an
officer without violence, and
carrying a concealed firearm.
Buckle, 17, was found guilty


of robbery with a firearm, in
that he carried a firearm; bur-
glary of a conveyance; and
theft, which included a motor
vehicle. He was originally
charged with
resisting offi-
cers without
violence, but
pled guilty to
that charge on
Wednesday,
before closing
arguments. HANNA
Vann, 18,
was found
guilty of rob-
bery with a ,
firearm, in that
he possessed or "
carried a / ..
firearm; bur- -
glary of a con- ETHEREDGE
veyance; theft,
which included a motor vehicle,
and resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
Shinholser' plans to decide
Monday when to set a sentenc-
ing hearing date. He has
ordered a pre-sentencing inves-
tigation and a disposition report


because the defendants were
juveniles at the time of arrest.
Sheriff Susan Benton said
she did not anticipate an out-
burst in the courtroom, but had
deputies there
just in case.
She and Major
Robert Lee sat
S with two of the
family mem-
S bers, including
- - Hanna's moth-
BUCKLE er, until they
were able to
compose them-
selves.
Shinholser
thanked the
jury for being
attentive
.. through 10
VANN days of what
was meant to
be a five-day trial. He and attor-
neys had spent two hours
Friday morning discussing jury
instructions. It then took two
and a half hours to deliver those
instructions to the jury.
Jurors were sent to lunch and
didn't start deliberating until


2:26 p.m. they had a verdict by
4:20 p.m.
Although all of the defen-
dants were tried together,
Shinholser told jurors in his
instructions to apply evidence
to each one separately.
Shinholser asked them to look
only at the evidence in the trial
to make their decisions on that.
It was up to them to decide
what evidence was reliable.
He also told them to apply
the same rules to every witness,
including Etheredge's and
Hanna's testimony.
Shinholser had invoked the
rule of sequestration in the trial.
Regarding allegations of that
rule being broken by one-or
more sheriff's deputies,
Shinholser informed jurors that
reading another officer's case
report is not a violation of that
rule, per se.
However, if jurors believed
anyone discussed a report with
another witness, they could
consider that a violation of the
rule, and disregard that testimo-
ny.

Getting down

and dirty
This week's Tuffin' It
assignment, to do agricultural
field work at Happiness
Farms, was a pleasure. Even
the drive down County Road
621 was easy on the eye.
Fields of pink or green cala-
diums ran to the horizon,
under a high blue sky filled
with puffy, cotton ball clouds.
When I pulled off the road
and turned off the car's engine
the only sounds were the wind
and the bird's singing.
I was ready to sign up on
the spot.
A group of people were
working off in the distance,
which I thought was about a
city block away. So I poured
on the sunblock, put on my
straw hat, and set off on foot
to join them.
Here's the first thing I
learned about working in farm
fields: Vast agricultural spaces
are as deceiving as large
expanses of water; the far
shore always looks much near-
er than it really is. ,
It turned out that group of
workers were a lot further off
than I'd (hoihth In fact, I
ended up walking about a half
a mile just to reach them.
Mind you, it was a pleasant
walk, along a truck track in the
rich dark brown soil. Puffs of
dust, kicked up by my feet,
blew in the breeze as I made
my way along. Cattle egrets,
disturbed by my approach
would take off, circle and land

Caladium field workers

Francisco Martinez leads a crew of about 20 farm workers who spend the better part of the year keeping the
Happiness Farm's caladium fields in Lake Placid free of weeds. His workers also spend time in the farm's cit-
rus groves picking tangerines and oranges.

Field work offers

sunshine and fresh

air as rewards

LAKE PLACID - Working in agriculture has pluses and
minuses.
Francisco Martinez, who is a crew leader for Happiness
Farms, explained the conflict. People generally like the work,
but find it hard to make a living.
He made it clear the problem exists industry wide.
There aren't too many benefits, he said, and field work
generally pays only minimum wage.
At Happiness Farms the workers are more fortunate, he
said, because they help harvest citrus, as well as tend caladi-
ums.
Picking oranges or tangerines pays better because workers
are paid by how much they pick.
They are paid $1.60 a sack, or $10 to $16 for a box (it takes
10 sacks to fill a box). Someone who works quickly can make
better money.
Of course, Martinez added, picking citrus is much harder
work. The sacks can weigh 50 pounds or better, and they are
worn over a shoulder.while standing on a ladder.
Weeding caladiums is actually easy, but workers are paid
by the hour and only minimum wage.
There are health risks as. well, he said, breathing in the dust
when working in the fields, and the sun can also be brutal.
Still, he added, his crew enjoys the work, and most work
there by choice.
Their routine varies a little, because they work in citrus
groves as well as the caladium fields.
Caladiums take about four months to mature,, Martinez
explained. The current fields were planted in July and will be
harvested late in October. The worker's main task is to keep
the fields weed free, not easy with the rich soil helping every-
thing to grow.
That makes this a busy time of year because the citrus also
is nearing maturity. In fact, workers have already begun to
pick tangerines, and will move on to oranges starting in
November.
Workers have to alternate between picking citrus and pick-
ing weeds. Martinez doesn't mind. For one thing it keeps life
interesting, he said, and for another it guarantees steady
work.
The hurricanes last year just about wiped out the paladium
crop, but this year looks much better, he said.
Happiness Farms is at 705 County Road 621. The tele-
-phne timber is 465-2313.

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Mechanic Terry Abbey of Automotive Point discusses a repair with
Lake Placid customer George Hill.


Collette provides


car repairs at


Automotive Point


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID -, Leander
Collette loves working with
cars and recently fulfilled his
dream of owning his own busi-
ness.
He and his wife, Karen,
opened their automotive repair
shop -for business March 2.
Leander, known to many as
Lee, has been a resident of Lake
Placid since 1969. He's worked
in boat and car sales for several
years.
"I enjoy working with people
and hav e mademany friends
along the way. This is a new
business for me. Although I've
beenin the boat business for 23
years, I've loved and been
around cars all my life."
Collette said.
Automotive Po ni Inc. per-
forms a variety of ser\ ici and'
repairs-such as complete brake
service (free exam) exhaust,
alignment, shocks, struts, tune
ups, constant velocity joints,
boots, axles, air conditioning,
belts and hoses, batteries, diag-
nostics, cooling systems, BG
transmission flushes, oil
changes and much more.
"I feel blessed that Terry
Abbey is our mechanic. He is
not only very dedicated and
honest, but he brings over 23
years of experience. The last 10
years he was with Midas
Muffler of Sebring and previ-
ously he worked with Cadillac,
Old, Chevrolet and Nissan in
New York," Collette said.
Customer George Hill of
Lake Placid agreed. "I've been
hereseveral times and always
get good service. They really
take good care of me," Hill
said. "Terry Abbey, the
mechanic has saved me big
time. He pointed out and
showed me that my differential
was leaking fluid and that there
was interior wear. Luckily it
was under warranty, and this
saved me down the road from
having a disabled car."
Abbey lifts a hood as he tells
me, "I've always been a car nut.
I especially love the old muscle
cars and drag racing."
Automotive Point has
teamed up with Yarbrough Tire,
which has been the "People's
Choice Award" for this year and
the favorite tire dealer in
Highlands County for the past
three years.
"Yarbrough Tire has been
family owned and operated for
over 37 years. With them on our
team, I feel customers can satis-
fy all their needs for quality
tires, rims and tire repair plus
our other automotive repair
services, while atone location.
Automotive Point is at 1
Triangle Park, about .3 miles

DIRTY
Continued from 11A
back down behind me.
It was like being in a nature
documentary - until I got to
where I was going. That was
when I discovered I wasn't in a
documentary, but a Three
Stooges comedy. I had walked
into the wrong field. Happiness
Farms was another two min-
utes down the road.
So back I trudged, another
half mile, got into my car and
headed in the right direction.
* Arriving at the correct place,
now about an hour behind
schedule, I walked out another
half mile to join a group of
about 20 workers who had
already been at work since 7
a.m.
A small flat bed hooked up
to a tractor was already piled
high with pulled weeds.
. The work is simple - get
close to the ground, grab a
weed and pull.
The plants come out with a
soft ripping sound; when
everyone is working yoa can
hear it clearly.
We each focused on the area
immediately in front of us, and
working right to left, grabbed
every weed, whether it had just
broken the surface, or was
already full grown.
The crew, who are Florida
residents originally from
Mexico, sometimes spoke or
laughed, but mostly they con-
centrated on their business.
They reminded me of an
army of ants, as they methodi-
cally and relentlessly swept ,
along in a.line, removing every
non-caladium plant in their


path.
This is a good thing, because
weeding a caladium field is
like weeding a garden on
steroids. It's not just a little
plant here, and a little plant
there - it's a bed of weeds
here and a bed of weeds there.
In fact, the weeds thrive to
such an extent that in places
they qualify as ground cover.
Francisco Martinez, the crew
leader, explained weeding is
done just about all year round.
The field we were in would
require another sweep in about
two weeks. By the time
they've cleared out the last
field, it's time to go back to the
beginning.
I really got into the task,
which wasn't difficult except .
for the strain on my back from
all the bending. The crew was
friendly and worked well
together. I would have stayed
longer if I'd had the time,
that's how pleasant the work
was.
Now, I don't want to sound
too rhapsodic. The sun beating
down took a lot of energy out
of me, and the bending defi-
nitely gotto me. Doing this job
for 40 hours a week wouldn't
leave me with much energy for
anything else.
Plus, it is a dirty job. From
my fingernails to my elbows,

Raymond James donates to hurricane relief

efforts; encourages others to do same thing


In response to vast need cre-
ated in the northern Gulf Coast
region by Hurricane Katrina, St.
Petersburg-based Raymond
James Financial has donated a
combined total of $200,000 to
the relief efforts of 'the
American Red Cross and The
Salvation Army, according to
Anthony J. Vignocchi, a finan-
cial advisor in the Sarasota
office of Raymond James
Financial Services.
The American Red Cross has
launched its largest mobiliza-
tion of resources for a single
natural domestic disaster.
Operating more than 250 shel-
ters across seven states, the
organization is providing a safe
haven for nearly 42,Q00 evac-
uees - many of who are now
homeless.
In addition to six base camp
kitchens providing 20,000


meals each day, The Salvation
Army has activated more than
75 mobile feeding units capable
of serving up to 5,000 meals per
day in communities throughout
Alabama, Lodisiana and
Mississippi.
The donation is intended not
only to help those in need, but
also to encourage others to
give. For additional information


or to make a contribution, visit
www.redcross.org or salvation-
army.org.
"The Raymond James mis-
sion statement emphasizes the
importance of giving back to
the communities in which we
live and work," Anthony J.
Vignocchi said. "We were eager
to help those affected by this
catastrophic storm."

Buoyed by
helmet success,
company turns
to body armor
PITTSBURGH - Buoyed
by the success of helmets it
developed for the U.S. mili-
tary, a western Pennsylvania
company will introduce its
new body armor this weekend
at an International Association
of Chiefs of Police conference
in Miami.
Mine Safety Appliances Co.
will debut its ForceField Body
Armor on Sunday. The com-
pany has no contracts for the
new body armor, but hopes to
sell its vests -- which will
cost about $500 each - to
police departments and the
military.
"We really do think the
police community is looking
for stability in this market.
They have to have confidence
and trust in the manufacturer,
and we've been saving lives
since 1914," said Eric Beck',
marketing director for the
company's safety products
division.
The company began mak-
ing mine safety equipment
more than 90 years ago. Since'
November 2003, it has won
six Army contracts worth
$155 million to provide its
Advanced Combat Helmet to
soldiers.
The bulletproof vest market
was rocked last year by bank-
ruptcies and lawsuits spawned
by the lightweight fabric
Zylon, which was once widely
used in police vests.
About 200,000 of 700,000
police officers nationwide
wore Zylon vests last year,
before the National Institute of
Justice determined the fabric

Georgia's
governor asks
schools to close
to save gas
By DICK PETTYS
Associated Press Writei
ATLANTA - Georgia Gov.
Sonny Perdue asked the state's
schools to take two "early
snow days" and cancel classes
Monday and Tuesday to help
conserve gasoline as
Hurricane Rita threatens the
nation's fuel supply line
If all of Georgia's schools
close, the governor estimated
about 250,000 gallons of(
diesel fuel would be saved
each day by keeping buses off
the road.
The governor also said an
undetermined amount o0 regu-
lar gasoline also would be
saved by allowing teachers,
other school staff members
and some parents to stay home
those days. Electricity also
would be conserved by keep-
ing the schools closed.
It's up to each school super-
intendent to decide whether to
call off classes.
"If Georgians stick together,
work together and conserve
together we can weather what-
ever problems Rita brings our
way with the least possible
inconvenience," Perdue said.
As he did in the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina. Perdue
asked the state's residents to
limit nonessential travel and
look for commute alternatives
including telecommuting, car
pooling and four-day work
weeks.

lawmakers have called for
delaying enactment of the new
benefit.
McClellan rejected that argu-
ment.
"They have waited too long
for coverage that is up to date,"
he said. "They have waited too
long for coverage that can help
them stay well and help keep
their costs down, and help keep
Medicare's costs down, so this
benefit is going forward nation-
wide."
Some lawmakers on Capitol
Hill are concerned that senior
citizens will be faced with too
many options for prescription
drug coverage. They support
legislation that would delay
penalties for late enrollment by
giving beneficiaries until Dec.
31, 2006, to select a plan. They
also want to give seniors the
right to switch providers one
time at any point in 2006.

SEBRING - The American Legion Post
69's Nurses Scholarship Program received
a great boost through a generous $1,000
donation from Wal-Mart to start its 2005
scholarship fund-raising efforts.
Scholarships are awarded to local nurs-
ing students at South Florida Community
College. Last year, the program raised
$3,000 through its annual "Hit & Giggles"
golf tournament. The Legion works closely
with the SFCC Foundationin order to max-


imize the effects of any money raised
through its efforts.
This year's event will be Oct. 22 again at
the Deer Run Golf Course at Sun 'N Lakes.
Golfers are encouraged to form their own
foursome and individual players will be
paired by the committee. Refreshments will
be provided during golf. Following last
year's successful Halloween theme, some
new "Giggles" ideas have been added to
provide an even greater fun-filled day at the


After golf, prizes will be awarded at the
American Legion where a fish, dinner will
be served, music will be provided by The
Music Man, and dancing and entertainment
will provide great fun. Tickets for this years
event will remain at $35 per golfer. Dinner
only tickets are priced at $7 and can be pur-
chased separately at the Legion.
For details, call Bob Burke at 452-6156
or Jerry LeBeck at 386-4735.

Tickets still available for


new outdoor drama theater


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - With the last architectural
construction drawings in the works and funding
arrangements being completed, the Florida
Outdoor Drama organization announced this
week the opening of the last two sections of
amphitheater seats for community sponsorship.
Sponsorship of Golden Circle Amphitheatre
seats for $2,000 each was opened in 2002.
Opened to the entire community, 84 seats were
sponsored by individuals, businesses and civic
clubs. There are still 316 seats available in the
. Golden Circle.
The newly opened sections of seats, which also
offer the opportunity to honor and memorialize
loved ones or publicize businesses, are in the
Steward ($1,000) and Prairie Pioneer ($500) sec-
tions., There are approximately 400 seats avail-
able in the Steward sections and 550 in the Prairie
Pioneer sections.
"Seat sponsors in all sections will receive sev-
eral benefits," said Debbie Rutledge, seat sales
chairperson.
There will be a name plate engraved with the
donor's name on each seat, and each sponsor will
also receive some complimentary tickets, invita-
tions to special celebrations and recognition in
the annual programs.
"This year, we have a special incentive for seat
sponsors," Rutledge said. "We will have a draw-
ing at our annual donor recognition dinner in
Novembqrfory,a pontoon boat, motor and trailer
worth $14,000 from Performance Sales and
Service. New Golden Circle seat sponsors will

receive 10 tickets (worth $100) for the drawing.
Steward sponsors will receive five tickets and
Pioneer sponsors will receive three tickets."
Tickets for the drawing will also be available
to the public and will be sold at the outdoor
drama office in Lake Placid and at local business
locations.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Bring it to me
When I was a young
child, Vacation Bible School
lasted two weeks - without
the benefit of a dazzling
curriculum or lavish sets.
More than 100 children
gathered for robust singing
and great flannel graph sto-
ries.
My aunt brought Bible
stories to life as she placed
felt figures on the flannel
board and taught us the
truths of Scripture. She'd
expertly introduce each
character - dramatically
intoning the events of the
story.
Bible memorization fol-
lowed. Verses I learned then
are still at home in my heart
and mind today.
The boys and girls sepa-
rated for craft time. Boys
went to woodshop. We girls
could hear their hammering
and sawing and smell the
freshly cut wood in our
domain of weaving and
sewing.
The ladies taught us to
weave strands of pre-cut
cloth in and out and make
pot holders - instructing us
in finishing the project so it
would serve its intended
purpose.
We also learned to sew by
hand - niaking aprons of the
many pretty cuts of cloth
supplied ,to us. But, whether
weaving or sewing,
inevitably, something went
wrong with my needle,
thread and stitches. Or my
weaving talents left my
potholder too loose to be
any good.
Then my teacher would
say to me, "Bring it to me."
All frustration with the proj-
ect would end at her words
becauseI lne sh e couldJ
- make it all right.
I wonder how many
crooked'stitches and unfin-
ished projects these precious
ladies completed each
evening so that we would
have something useful to
take home. How like Jesus
they were to our inept'
hands. ' (
Jesus and his disciples
had taken a boat to a soli-
tary place for some needed
rest. Instead, word of their
whereabouts spread and the
crowds had already gath-
ered. As evening crept in;
Jesus - concerned for their
physical hunger - chal-
lenged the disciples to feed
them.
The disciples debated
with Jesus as to the impossi-
bility of the situation. Five '
little words became a
refreshing surprise to me in
this familiar story. The dis-
ciples told Jesus they had
five loaves and two fish -
just enough for the boy who
had thought to bring food.
Jesus said, "Bring them here
to me." (Matthew 14: 18,
NIV)
What follows is the mira-
cle of feeding "5,000 men,
besides women and chil-
dren." (vs. 21b).
As in my childhood days
when a teacher took my
unfinished or childish
attempts at sewing and
weaving and said, "Bring it
to me," Jesus says the same.
Am I afraid, discouraged
or weary? Have my imper-
fect attempts to impart truth -
left me feeling inadequate?
Or, is my unbridled zeal in
need of his touch?
Jesus says, "Bring them
here to me." When I place
my simple offerings in his
hands, he will take them and
perfect them. Selah.

Surprise party organized to recognize business


owner for community service and goodwill


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - In all communities
there are those who make a positive
impact through their generosity and
community service. Sadly, many of
them receive little to no recognition or
appreciation for their efforts.
Steve Maxwell, owner of Maxwell
Groves in Avon Park, is one of the
many residents of Highlands
County who has done and contin-
ues to do just that.
Though his name and his cit-
rus business are well known to
most in the area, the gestures of
kindness and compassion he
extends to others on a daily basis
go on largely behind the scenes
(and he would have it no other
way). Recently, however, sever- -
al of the recipients of his
goodness of heart joined
forces to throw him a sur- '
prise party as a way of say--
ing thank you.
The surprise gratitude
party was the brainchild
of Christine Carter of
Avon Park., Carter has
been a tenant of
Maxwell's for nearly a
year. She needed a place to
stay after a long term rela- .
tionship had come to an
abrupt end and Maxwell pro-
vided a place for her and her
children. Not only did he offer
her a fair rental price on a
home; but he also gave her a
tremendous amount of moral sup-
por. encoirJi.e.iTicn, ,nd other aj i-
tance while she struggled to gain her
independence and get her feet back on
solid ground.
"Steve is so good to everyone and is
always doing extra things to help his.
tenants," Carter said. "He is so much
more than a great landlord; he's been
there for me and my children to help us


out in so many other ways. I don't
know how I could have done it without
him."
In an effort to show her appreciation,
Carter decided to host a small gathering
in his honor. As she made the rounds to
other tenants announcing her plans it
became evident that all were eager to
jump on board and help
make the party a suc-
cess.


Stories of Maxwell's generosity
made it clear that this would become
more than just a small backyard bar-
beque. As the number of anticipated
guests grew, Carter realized that more
food would be required and.a bigger
grill would be needed. She began call-
ing around to places looking for a grill
and other donations of meat, paper
goods, tables, chairs, etc. and the more
calls she made the more people wanted
to participate.
I of ASon Paradoxically,
ssages. of Carter,


. , . .


Initially the parirN I s intended to be
a small potluck gathering in Carter's
yard. As word got out, however, more
and more people wanted to participate.
"It's amazing just how many people in
the community have been touched in
some way or another by that man,"
Carter explained.

who had realized that due to the volume
of attendants and the possibility of rain,
asked Mlaxl\ ell if she could host a gath-
ering in his packinghouse. Not only did
he agree to her request but, like always,
he went the extra mile to help clean,
prepare, and set up for the party, never
once suspecting that the gathering was

posed by Dressel about Maxwell.

for him.
"Poor Mr. Maxwell did all this work
thinking he was helping me with a per-
sonal gathering. He worked so hard,
never knowing he was helping with his
own surprise party," Carter said.
Though not as many as expected
showed up for the affair, all of
Maxwell's tenants, as well as
several others, came bring-
ing food and grateful
hearts; and all with
words of praise for
, their landlord.
"Whenever we've
. needed anything he's
' ' been there to help us," said
Angel Diego who has been
renting from him since
,' . September of 2004. Diego, who
lives with her husband Eddie and
their three children, continued stat-
ing, "He's really good to the kids
and to us. In the seven years of being
married we've never had as good of a
landlord."
Tenant Judy Cooper said of
Maxwell, "He appears to be a good,
hardworking business man following in
his parents' footsteps or legacy. He
seems to be a very giving, big-hearted
person who donates to the community
for fairs, schools or whatever."'--
Thomas Simpson, 24, currently a ten-
ant of Maxwell's, has perhaps more rea-
sons than anyone to be grateful for this
great man. Simpson's parents tragically
died from cancer when he was only 19,
his mother in November and father in

result of many people's donations of time, effort, services, and monetary contributions.
Maxwell has touched the lives of many in the community and those who know him are
more than willing to show their appreciation for the blessing he has been to them.


Welcome visitors into church with warmth


* News-Sun correspondent Pauline Au Yang provides
etiquette tips for readers on the last Sunday of each
month in the Lifestyle section.

How do you treat visitors who enter your home? Do
you greet them, offer them a seat maybe a bite to eat, or
a glass of beverage? The kindness extended to a guest
who visits your natural home should be extended to
those who visit the Lord's house (the church).
When guest visit your church it's because they are
interested in serving the Lord, looking for a place of
rest, of warmth, compassion and love.
As a member of the church, it's our responsibility to
walk over to visitors at our church and with our hand
extended, a smile and warmth in our voice, offer greet-
ings. As members of the body of Christ, it is our
responsibility to represent our heavenly Father. Who
knows we may be accommodating angels unaware. The
Scripture encourages us to allow our lights to shine so
that others may see our good works and glorify our
Father who is in heaven.
How many ties have strangers graced the church
with their presence yet we-chose not to acknowledge
their presence? Acknowledgment is only shown when
prompted by the pastor.
Treatment of women: It's the responsibility of the
elders, deacon and lay pastors, to exhibit to our young
men the correct way to treat our women. The men


by.
; - Pauline Au Yang

should extend a hand to assist the women when they
step up to the altar and when they step down. Holding
a door is especially important to the widows, senior
women and young girls. What better place to show
respect and courtesy and set a lasting example than in
the church. While the pastor is the leader, setting good
examples should not be primarily his responsibility.
In an effort to develop church relations. Some larger
churches have now developed a communication, public
relations and customer service workshop. Some people
are skeptic and may be critical in saying the church is
not a business. The treatment meted out to those who
come within our church wall is important. It could


either build or destroy the church. Unto others do as
you would have them do unto you.
While the church is holy, the most sacred place is the
altar. We should boldly approach and enter with rever-
ence, respect and honor, with offering of praise and
worship.
Remember the church is a place where one goes for
comfort, love, where one seeks compassion and peace,
where one goes in search of healing, blessing and for-
giveness. The church is where ohe goes in search of
hope ... to learn how to serve God and mankind.
Therefore, it is imperative that we honor each person
who enters its doors. How we behave is a reflection of
who we are. Ask yourself is my behavior toward anoth-
er, a reflection of God?

DIVERSIONS



Boy's reading trouble has developmental explanation


Question: We have a 6-year-
old son who is a late bloomer
and is having trouble learning
to read. Even though he is
immature, I don't understand
why this would keep him from
reading.
Dr. Dobson: It is likely that
your late-maturing youngster
has not yet completed a vital
neurological process involving
an organic substance called
myelin. At birth, the nervous
system of the body is not insu-
lated. That is why an infant is
unable to reach out and grasp an
object; the electrical command
or impulse is lost on its journey
from the brain to the hand.
Gradually, a whitish substance
(myelin) begins to coat the
nerve fibers, allowing con-
trolled muscular action to
occur.
Myelinization typically pro-
ceeds from the head downward
and from the center of the body
outward. In other words, a child
can control the movement of his
head and neck before the rest of
his body. Control of the shoul-
der precedes the elbow, which
precedes the wrist, which pre-
cedes the large muscles in the
hands, which precedes small
muscle coordination of the fin-
gers. This explains why ele-
mentary school children are
taught block letter printing
before they learn cursive writ-


ing; the broad
strokes and lines are
less dependent on
minute finger control
than the flowing
curves of mature
penmanship.
Since the visual
apparatus in humans
is usually the last
neural mechanism to
be myelinated, your
immature child may
not have undergone
this necessary devel-
opmental process by
his present age of 6
years. Therefore,
such a child who is


Foci
ON TI
FAMI

Dr. Jar
Dobs


extremely immature and unco-
ordinated may be neurological-
ly unprepared for the intellectu-
al tasks of reading and writing.
Reading, particularly, is a high-
ly complex neurological
process. The visual stimulus
must be relayed to the brain
without distortion, where it
should be interpreted and
retained in the memory. Not all
6-year-old children are
equipped to perform this task.
Unfortunately, however, our
culture permits few exceptions
or deviations from the estab-
lished timetable. A child of that
age must learn to read or he will
face the emotional conse-
quences of failure. This is why I
favor either holding an imma-


ture child out of
school for a year or
homeschooling him
for several years.
Question: What is
the most difficult
period of adoles-
cence, and what is
behind the distress?
Dr. Dobson: The
JS 18th year is typically
HE the time of greatest
conflict between par-
IY ent and child. But the
13th and 14th years
mes are commonly the
on most difficult 24
months in life for the
youngster. It is during
this adolescent period that self-
doubt and feelings of inferiority
reach an all-time high, amidst
the greatest social pressures yet
experienced. An adolescent's
worth as a human being hangs
precariously on peer-group
acceptance, which can be tough
to garner. Thus, relatively
minor evidences of rejection or
ridicule are of major signifi-
cance to those who already see
themselves as fools and fail-
ures.
It is difficult to overestimate
the impact of having no one to
sit with on the school-spon-
sored bus trip, or not being
invited to an important event, or
being laughed at by the "in"
group, or waking tp in the


morning to find seven shiny
new pimples on your forehead,
or being slapped by the girl you
thought liked you as much as
you liked her. Some boys and
girls consistently face this kind
of social catastrophe throughout
their teen years.
Dr. Urie Bronfenbrenner,
eminent authority on child
development at Cornell
University, told a Senate com-
mittee that the junior-high years
are probably the most critical to
the development of a child's
mental health. It is during this
time of self-doubt that the per-
sonality is often assaulted and
damaged beyond repair.
Consequently, said
Bronfenbrenner, it is not unusu-
al for healthy, happy children to
enter junior high school, but
then emerge two years later as
broken, discouraged teenagers.

Dr. Dobson is founder and
chairman of the board of the
nonprofit organization Focus
on the Family, P.O. Box 444,

Old wedding tape preserves memories bitter and sweet


Dear Abby: I recently
learned that my parents still
have a videotape of my first
wedding. I was married to that
louse for a miserable four
months. Several years later I
met and married my present
husband, a sweet guy. We have
been together for 10 years and
have three beautiful children.
I have asked my mother to
destroy the tape, but she refus-
es. She says she keeps it
because several of the wedding
guests on the tape are now
deceased. I would love to see
those deceased relatives again,
Abby, but not that cursed wed-
ding. And I certainly don't want
my children to see it. What
should I do? - Dismayed in
North Carolina
Dear Dismayed: Your moth-
er's reason for keeping the tape
seems logical. Stay calm, and


ask her to please not
share it with your
children. That's a rea-
sonable request.
When the time comes
that your mother joins
the relatives on the
tape, you can dispose
of the "evidence" of
your youthful mis-
take without causing
a family feud.

ARTS AND LEISURE



Music lovers can quench their knowledge at local libraries


Avon Park's free Saturday,
afternoon film series honored
dedicated teachers all of

dedication, and pride that any
band builds as it works together.

play an instrument but don't

using the keyword "Putumayo."
The "Putumayo World Music"
CD series has all types of popu-
lar music from Latin America,
Africa, Cuba, Europe, Asia and
the Caribbean area. You can
search for the type of music you
like. Type in rock music and
your choice might be Girl
Brothers. Look for sacred vocal
music, and one title you might
like is "Chant: Spirit in Sound."
Perhaps your subject matter is
popular music 1940, and if so,
one title you'll have to take
home is "It's Only a Paper
Moon: Golden Groups of the
'40s & '50s." How about trying
a combinatiori of types of music
such as folk-rock music? One
of your title choices will be the
Indigo Girls' CD album titled
"All That We Let In," and blues
lovers have no reason to sing
them with such great titles as
"Black Top Blues Vocal
Dynamite."
We even have CDs of film
themes, such as "The Bridges of
Madison County: Music From


the Motion Picture." All those
haunting themes from
"Casablanca," "The
Godfather," "Sense &
Sensibility," "Breakfast at
Tiffany's," "Modern Times,"
"Titanic," "Zorba the Greek"
and "Schindler's List," are on
one CD titled "Salonisti Play
Film Music." If you enjoy
marches and stirring patriotic
music, then take home The

October artist of the month
RiteR Aid'


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The Caladium Arts and
Crafts Cooperative announce its October artist of
the month is Jean Gragert.
Originally from Wisconsin, Gragert moved to
Florida in 1992 and settled in Lake Placid in
1994. Gragert said she inherited her artistic traits
from her father, who was very talented in colored
pencils, pastels and ink.
SReminiscing her school days, Gragert recalled
her love for animals would have her drawing
horses and dogs. Her passion for horses led her to
train and show quarter horses, appaloosas and
grade horses. She also raised and trained dober-
man pinchers, showed them at AKC sanctioned
shows and sold the dogs she had raised. It was
only natural Gragert would grow fond of painting
and drawing dogs and horses.
In her teenage years, Gragert was chosen to
demonstrate drawing in various stores throughout
Eau Claire, Wis. Then came marriage and two
children so art got put aside for quite a few years.


In Lake Placid, Gragert discovered the Caladium
SArts and Crafts Cooperative and all the wonder-
ful classes that were offered here. She had not
done much painting in 25 years, but decided now
was the time to do what she really loved - paint-
ing. She signed up for oil painting classes with
Suellen Robinson in 1995. In Suellen, Gragert
not only found a terrific teacher, but a-good friend
as well. With her guidance Gragert improved
greatly and yes she's still taking classes at the Co-
op 10' years later. Art is a never ending font of
learning. Gragert is so grateful that God has cre-
ated so many beautiful animals, flowers, moun-
tains and wonders too many to mention for her to
continue painting.
Gragert's works will be featured in a special
section of the Arts and Crafts Co-op for the whole
month of October. Call in and visit the store to
choose one of many wonderful art gifts available
From Gragert's and other artists collections. The
Co-op is situated at the end Interlake Boulevard
in Lake Placid.

An inspirational thought

Have you ever felt like yiou
were drifting in an ocean of
God's promises, but not
getting anyivlhere? You
pray, and yet continue to
praJy,' but for some reason
those prayers as a sailboat.
"' ?There are many' people who"
get in the boat and just float
along. They're just drifting in circles.
Sometimes ive ironder why this is
happening. One reason could be, wre pray
without purpose in our heart. In1 a sense, we
can say, we haven't really set our sails.
Without sails, the powerful wind of the
spirit is unable to take us where we want to
go. We're constantly drifting here and there,
but no stability. Prayer should never be that
way. Prayer should always have a purpose.
Let's look at prayer Is way. Determinining
your purpose of your tlayer. Don't be one of
those floating along 'With 110 direction, or
drifting in circles. Itr .4me i'e see the results
of our prayers. Be raged!

Pisces should use logic, not




emotion, to make your appeal


Aries (March 21, - April 20)
- It takes longer to do some-
thing than it does to delegate it.
So don't feel like you must be
in control of everything. If it
will make you feel better, help
out just a bit.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Someone's style, whether
genuine or counterfeit, says
much about the person who has
adopted this way of acting.
Consider if you two should
really continue your relation-
ship.

Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- Your brain is your most
attractive feature this week,
Gemini. When someone gets
you talking you are chock full
of good ideas. Make sure high-'
er-ups hear your advice.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)


- Not everyone is HORI
ready for your fantasy
ideas and dreams. Met
Although you must Se
come out of your shell
every once in a while,
Cancer, you can do it with less
drama. Virgo is a key player
this week.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23)-
You're acting like a clown these
days and you don't mind the
stares and finger pointing. Clue
others into your way of think-
ing and life might just be a little
more enjoyable for the week.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Others really appreciate
what you do for them, Virgo,
even though it may seem you're
running around too much.
Pretty soon you'll have time for
yourself - be patient.


(
7r
r
'e


DSCOPES Libra (Sept. 23 -
Oct. 23) -
'o News Diversity brings you
rvice a wide 'range of
- choices, particularly
where your career is
concerned. You make friends
easily, so don't be afraid to
strike out on new ground.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- The view from the edge
bores you when you can't go
any further. Work with what
you have now, Scorpio. You're
bound to find a new way to
cross the crevasse.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
.21) - Rather than trying to
hold on to a little piece of the
past move on to grasp at the
future. Close friends and family
will support you in all decisions
so don't be afraid of the chal-


lenges ahead.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - An innocent social situa-
tion has turned into something
more. You find that you still
have feelings for a former
romantic interest. If he/she feels
the same way you should defi-
nitely pursue it. '
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb.
19) - You are walking on
cloud nine when that person
you've had your eye on for a
while finally acknowledges
your existence. Feel free to
float on air for the rest of the
week.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- Before you give up on an
important project try using
logic rather than an emotional
appeal. If you find you can't
solve the dilemma, go back to
the drawing board.

American alligators crawl wetlands in Florida


One of the best living exam-
ples from the age of the
dinosaurs is the alligator. Adult
alligators will grow to 10 feet in
length; males may reach lengths
between 12 and 16 feet.
' Alligators are found in the
southeastern United States,
from North Carolina to Texas
and extending north in the
Mississippi basin to southeast-
ern Oklahoma. Alligators are
well known to Floridians. They
can be found in lakes, freshwa-
ter wetlands and, to the dismay
of homeowners, in residential
canals and ponds. Some occa-
sionally use brackish or saltwa-
ter areas.
Alligators become somewhat
inactive in the cool winter
months. Activity increases in
the spring and courtship begins
in mid-March. Males announce
their presence to females with a
loud deep roar, which also
serves to mark their territory.
Female will answer with a bel-
low lower in pitch and intensi-
ty.
Alligators have a well-devel-


ota

news


oped sense of smell..
The combination of-
bellowing and scent
is thought to be the
mechanism for pair
location. After
approximately two
months of mating,
the female builds her
nest. She does this by
scrapping together a
mound of earth and
plant debris. The
average nest is about
five feet wide and
two feet high. After
digging a cavity in
the top of the nest,
she will deposit

between 20 and 50 eggs.
Females often remain near the
nest and protect it during incu-
bation.
After about nine weeks the
young become vocal while still
in their shells. This seems to
stimulate the female to open the
nest. The nine inch long
hatched young will then leave.
the nest and head straight for
the water. The female may


remain with the
young for awhile. The
young alligators will
remain together as a
pod for up to several
years.
Juvenile alligators
eat insects, mollusks,
and crustaceans.
Older alligators eat
fish, turtles, snakes,
birds, mammals, and
crustaceans. Animals
that eat juvenile alli-
gators include birds,
snakes, otters, rac-
coons, and bass.
Adult alligators
create holes that


resemble small ponds or a tun-
neled area away from a shore-
line. Alligators create these wal-
lows by aggressively moving
vegetation and soil with both
their mouth and their tail. These
holes are extremely important'
to many wildlife species espe-
cially during droughts when
they provide the only surface'
water available. They also pro-
vide thick vegetative growth


along the shoreline for birds.
Alligators were hunted heav-
ily until the late 1960s. At that
point it is estimated that over 10
million alligators were harvest-
ed and alligators were effective-
ly eliminated in most parts of
their historic range. Legal pro-
tection, management, and
research have restored popula-
tions in many parts of their
range, one of which is Florida.
However, conflicts between
man and alligator have also
increased with rising population
numbers of both species.
You should never feed an
alligator. Feeding alligators in
Florida is against the law.
Alligators will lose their natural
fear of humans if fed. If you
know of an area where the feed-
ing of alligators is occurring or
may occur, and you have
authorization to do so you can
print and post a sign provided
on the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission Web

South Florida Community College brings children's shows to Highlands


AVON PARK - Each year,
South Florida Community
College invites school age chil-
dren to come its Highlands
campus to witness live theatre
presentations through the
Young Peoples Theatre.
The 2005-06 season begins
Friday, Oct. 7. Showtimes are
9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. This
year, the series is co-sponsored
by Alan Jay Automotive
Network.


MAXWELL
Continued from 1C


Back by popular demand,
Amelia Bedelia and Other
Stories, as presented by Story
Salad Productions Inc., comes
to the SFCC Auditorium. Four
popular children's stories will
be presented - "Jumbo: The
Most Famous Elephant in the
World," 'Stacks of Trouble,"
"Johnny Appleseed: My Story"
and "Welcome Back Amelia
Bedelia."
Jumbo is a baby elephant


ciate people thinking about
me."
Being a humble man,
Maxwell said of what he does
for others, "I do what I do
because the Lord loves me and
I love the Lord. I just try to do
what he wants me to do. I also
love working with young kids;
they are eager and want to
learn."
Dressel and his wife, Petula,
likewise spoke very highly of
Maxwell. Petula stated, "I
grew up as his neighbor and
he's always been a good-heart-
ed and special man whose
company I've enjoyed."
Gary Dressel, an agriscience
teacher at Avon Park High
School, whose relationship
with Maxwell has primarily
been through work, said of
him, "He believes in the future


born in the wilds of central
Africa. He is taken to the Paris
zoo, but later sold to the
London zoo, where he grows to
an enormous size and becomes
a celebrity. Jumbo is then sold
to P.T. Barnum in America to be
the star attraction in Barnum,s
circus.
"In Stacks of Trouble," Mike
and his sister Lisa have chores
to do while their mother leaves
for a few days. Mike chooses to


of agriculture and allows the
students to keep their fair ani-
mals in his backyard because,
unlike Sebring and Lake
Placid, Avon Park doesn't have
an animal facility. His business
is always open to students as a
training sight to increase study
and understanding in the citrus
industry and he's gone over
and above with his generosity
to our school program. He is a
very generous man and is
always willing to give to the
community."
Young and old alike benefit
from Maxwell and his kind-
ness. One of Carter's three
sons, Codey, 13, said of
Maxwell, "He's a great man.
He takes our family out to din-
ner'all the time and is kind of
like our grandpa. I am thankful
for everything he does."


clean the dishes, thinking the
dishwasher will do most of the
work for him. However, the
dishwasher is broken, and Mike
has more work to do than he
thought. Hiding the dirty dishes
in the basement brings more
trouble to Mike.
Pioneer Johnny Appleseed
visits a frontier family and
helps Papachop wood. He joins
the family for dinner and tells
them stories about his life. John


The party went off without a
hitch thanks to all who con-
tributed. The old adage "many
hands make light work" was
exemplified, while the saying
"too many cooks spoil the
stew" could not have been
more dispelled.
Contributions or food, prod-
ucts, money, services, and time
from friends; community mem-
bers; local businesses; and
ironically, the guest of honor;
made it possible to recognize a
man who has blessed and
touched so many lives.


Chapin, that's his real name,
has a great love of nature which
takes him across the country
clearing forests and planting
apple seeds. Would you believe
he walks all that way barefoot?
Amelia Bedelia loses her job.
"In Welcome Back, Amelia
Bedelia" she looks for another
job, trying many, but not find-
ing the right fit. Amelia returns
to her first employer. She fin-
ishes baking the dessert she had
started that morning. When her
employer tastes the wonderful
cream puffs Amelia baked, she
hires her back.
All of these stories teach


children lessons about every
day life. They, indeed, learn
while enjoying the musical
presentation. Each performance
is geared for a specific age
group and is open to area
schools and children who are
home schooled. "Amelia
Bedelia and Other Stories" is
best suited for children ages 4-
7. Invitations to participate in
the SFCC Young Peoples,
Theatre are handled through the
School Board of Highlands
County, Basic Programs. For
more information, call 471-
5574.

The largest summit meeting of world leaders in histo-
ry ended at the United Nations last week, and never have
so many achieved so little. Some 150 heads of state
walked away without achieving much for the fight
against genocide, poverty, terrorism or public corruption.
The United States deserves a big share of the blame, yet
rich and poor states alike seized the opening to scuttle
Secretary-General Kofi Annan's ambitious, overdue
agenda.
Halving extreme poverty, halting human rights abuses
and controlling the spread of nuclear weapons would
have been a fitting renewal of the United Nations' found-
ing principles on its 60th anniversary.
While many blame the barn-burning U.S. ambassador,
John Bolton, for the summit's collapse, other states,
notably African and Arab, went in without the stomach to
clean up the United Nations or their corrupt regimes.
Not all went sour ... Annan was right that the summit
was "a good start" toward addressing poverty and terror-

This session, though, should have been more than a
"start"; presidents and prime ministers expect something
tangible in return for making the trip. Annan will need to
find a breakthrough to keep these leaders engaged on a
broader agenda.. With Iraq nearing a new crossroads, an
impasse over nuclear testing and uncertainty across the
Mideast and Latin America, the only one with more at
stake than the secretary-general is the United States.

An editorial excerpt from the St. Petersburg Times.

When the inevitable recriminations begin over who
dropped the ball in the Marlins stadium deal, keep this
number in mind: $30 million. That's how close the par-
ties came to finding a funding formula that would allow
South Florida's baseball team to have a permanent home
before the deal stalled. Today, that gap looks like a bar-
gain because land and construction costs have pushed the
figure into the $100 million range.
, As major civic construction projects go, the original
$30 million gap wasn't a huge amount. .
-In large measure, the increase-in costs is due to the
downtown building boom that has raised the cost of land ..
and materials and made skilled labor more expensive.
This produces a huge benefit, as local civic leaders never

An editorial excerpt from The Miami Herald.

The loss of medical files in states hit by Hurricane
Katrina and the difficulty doctors have experienced in
not knowing the physical histories of storm victims like-
ly means Americans are going to be hearing a lot about
electronic medical records.
While most businesses have long reduced paperwork
by centralizing records on computers, health care is the
one sector that continues to rely primarily on pen, paper
and file cabinets.
Supporters of what those in the health-care field call
EMRs are renewing calls for increased computerization
in the wake of Katrina. They note centralized records are
a great asset in disaster situations by giving physicians
access to an unknown patient's medical history, prescrip-
tions and chronic illnesses - all factors which can affect
a doctor's decision on how to proceed. Further, potential
cost savings could be huge if computerization is expand-
ed for writing prescriptions, scheduling hospital visits,
joint consultations with other physicians, and diagnosis.
Some studies also show medical errors could be sig-
nificantly reduced ...
Medical practices that have gone computer in recent
years usually have an out-of-town backup system, and
computer experts say information can be well-guarded
by today's firewalls, password-protected systems, secure
Web sites and encrypted data ...
While it's understandable EMR supporters are using
Katrina to illustrate their point, we caution against any
knee-jerk reaction even though we, too, are excited about


possibilities of computerized medical recordkeeping. ...

The good, the bad and the ugly tales of iguanas


Readers of this col-
umn know that LAURA'
among the other liv-
ing creatures that take Lr
up residence in the Lau
Ware household, we
have iguanas. Three of them, in
fact, despite the fact we have
been looking to relocate the trio
since before John left for col-
lege.
It's not a simple thing to get
rid of three iguanas that have
spent all of their lives in captiv-
ity. My compassionate nature
will not allow me to simply
open the cage doors and let
them into the back yard -
they're used to room service
and it would be a shock for
them to discover that chopped
zucchini and squash do not
exist in the wild.
Most places such as the
Humane Society will not take
reptiles. I don't blame them -
they certainly have different
requirements than your typical
pet. I could perhaps find some
innocent person to palm them
off on, but my honest nature
wouldn't permit me to hand
them over without pages of

Thailand. He has put up about
20 elephants for sale to those
who want to give them a good
home.
But not just anyone can have
an elephant for a pet. First, you
have to be a Thai national.
Then there is the matter of
money. Not only are pet ele-
phants expensive (prices start at
US $48,700) but the elephant
owner requires that a potential
buyer have bank accounts with
a total of US $243,300.
Moreover, the potential owner
must have sufficient land for
the elephant to exercise in, and
mud holes so the pet pachyderm
can cool off.
New elephant owners do get
what the article I read referred
to as "post-sale service," which
includes an elephant trainer and
food for the beast. Do not ask
me what elephants eat. All I can
tell you is I figure feeding them
is more complicated than
throwing zucchini and squash
into a food processor.
You might be asking your-
self, "Laura, is this legal?"
Well, if the elephants were wild
animals, it would be against the


law. But according to their
owner, these elephants are
domesticated, offspring of an
"elephant wedding" that took
place several years ago. No
word if the bride wore white.
Laithongrian promises that
the elephants for sale are well-
behaved, well-trained and a
source of good luck. No word
on if they are potty trained, but
I guess since they aren't exactly
going to be inside pets that's not
much of an issue.
Doesn't this sound exciting?
Doesn't it make you want to run
out and declare Thai citizenship
so that you could be one of the
special few to actually own an
elephant for a pet? Are you just
itching to empty your bank
account to have one of these
animals stomping around your
property?
If not, could I interest you in
a hostile iguana? Or three?

social legislation of the 1960s
and 1970s, you know, laws that
created a society of Legal and
Together, known as "equal and
integrated," rather than "equal
but separated."
Stuff like that.
You probably saw it coming
too.
Then, another one of those
socially liberal laws came along
that officially made abortion
something less than murder.
And the long list of social
legislation goes on and on.
These days, it's about living
wills, same-gender unions, and
whether or not 20 residents of a
small island need a $500 mil-
lion bridge to connect them to
the mainland.
Anyone who has lived in
western Oregon knows what it's


like when the rain
falls on that yellow
S clay and in three steps
you are suddenly
_ unable to lift one foot
or the other. I remem-
ber my first time. We
were driving back
from the coast and
stopped the car down
TER S the eastside of .the
Coast Range, so the
MP kids could - well,
"' you know - do their
JENBERG necessary thing
beside the car.
As the gentle Pacific rain
continued to drench the steep
forest of Douglas fir, I crawled
out of the car and decided to
have a look around.
Watching from the dry, front
passenger side, my wife (a
native Oregonian) leaned over,
rolled down the driver's side
window, and yelled, "Don't get
into that clay over there!"
The color fascinated me. I
mean, even in the grayish light
and through the falling rain, as
if it were glowing, the wet clay
was as yellow as any yellow I'd
ever seen. I had to step in it.
"Richard!"
It was too late. And when I
stepped forward my left boot to
catch my balance, it got stuck,
too. Now, I had no way of
pulling my boots out of the


tenacious muck. Gathering all
my strength, I lunged my
weight forward and with a great
sloping sound, my right boot
came out of the stuff, and I slid
forward. Waving 'my arms for
balance I managed to take the
step forward, now more stuck
than ever.
My wife and our boys all
came over to "grab hold of dad
and help him out of the" yellow
Oregon clay.
I lay back in their three pairs
of hands and arms as they
pulled and I pulled and with
two more great big slurps, my
boots were free, and weighed
about 30 pounds each. The clay
that surrounded them formed
pancakes of at least two feet
across, each boot.
We couldn't get rid of it,
even in the laundry.
Everywhere the clay landed
was forever stained yellow.
Yes, I do look at life around
me through many pairs of boots
I've worn through the years, all
the ones I mentioned when I
started this. And I don't care
whatever boots I have worn,
conviction and clay have one
thing in common: I can get real-
ly stuck really fast if I'm not
careful.
Watching the mud begin to
show as the water recedes from
New Orleans reminds me of


that late afternoon returning
from Seaside, Ore.
Watching the recovery crews
moving into the Big Easy gives
me chills.
Watching families from
across the nations around the
world reaching their hands and
arms to pull all those stuck
boots out of that awful muck, I
get chills
SI get chills because for all the
different pairs of boots I've
worn in my life, I really like to
be reminded that it doesn't mat-
ter what style of name brand
boots or handmade boots, or
whatever boots they are, it just
feels good to help another
human being get unstuck.
So, after all, and after all
these years, it is still true, is it?
When we get stuck wherever
we are, we can have confidence
that more are the helping hands
and arms than the number of
boots we wear.
Our cherished United States
of America may be marching to
a lot of drum beats, but when
boots get stuck and cannot
march, we all help get the
parade going again.

The Real Clinton Legacy: Chinese condoms


No matter how
hard the media try to
rehabilitate Bill
Clinton - the man
who brought shame
and dishonor to the
presidency - he
seems unable to shed
the chronic misbe-
havior that marked
his White House
years, sullied his
image, got him
impeached and


MAKING

MIKE R
l


destroyed forever his hopes for
any kind of legacy worth
remembering.
What he did this past week-
end, during seemingly endless
TV appearances where he
attacked President Bush,
showed once again why he
deserves to be held in contempt
instead of being fawned over by
a subservient media and the
Democrat party, both ever anx-
ious to pay homage to him no
matter how low he sinks.
The media's slavishly obse-
quious behavior during his
widely-publicized "save the
world conference" in New York
last week was typified by a
female Italian reporter who was
overheard saying that Monica
Lewinski - whose groveling
was of a different, more basic
form - was "lucky," a remark
on par with a similar gushing by
one of her American sisters.
Some of the more honest
journalists did admit that
Clinton's attacks on President
Bush were off-limits, pointing
out the fact that former presi-
dents simply do not criticize
their successors. It's just not
done. Unfortunately, they failed
to add that Clinton's criticism
was also completely off base,
like much of what he says.
The whole incident reminded
me of one of my father's finest
moments when on the day of


his inauguration in
1983, just minutes
after learning that the
American hostages
S in Iran had been
freed, he sent former
S President Carter to
greet the hostages
and even gave him
the use of Air Force
SENSE One for his mission.
Dad had no reason
.EAGAN beyond his great
compassion and
decency to treat the man he had
defeated after a bruising cam-
paign - where his opponent had
viciously attacked him - with
such a great and generous ges-
ture. And from that moment on
he never once spoke ill of
Jimmy Carter nor did Jimmy
Carter speak ill of him during
his eight years in the White
House.
Ronald Reagan and Jimmy
Carter may have been worlds
apart in their politics, but they
shared one similarity - they
were both gentlemen. It's some-
thing that could never be said
about Bill Clinton, now appro-
priately memorialized by the
Chinese by having a line of
condoms named after him. Our
media and his fellow
Democrats may not have his
number, but the rest of the
world does. Clinton's condoms
- what a legacy!
Clinton's activities last
weekend showed once again,
that like his Democrat col-
leagues, he cannot stop wanting
to run this country and run the
world while he's at it. The
man's overwhelming hunger
for the spotlight marks every-
thing he says and does.
He cannot bring himself to
leave center stage and slip into
the background. Nor can his
fellow Democrat Chuck
Schumer: when he sees a


microphone the area between
him and the mike becomes a
hazardous place to be. Get near
either of them and you could be
trampled to death as they race
to get in front of the TV camera.
Clinton's ingratitude to the
president who honored him
once again by pairing him with
his father to raise funds for the
victims of Hurricane Katrina
simply boggles the mind. At the
very first opportunity he turned
on the man who went out of his
way to twice honor him with a
prestigious assignment.
Chanting the Democrat
party's favorite mantra about
the need to raise taxes so they
can spend more of the people's
money on their pet spending
schemes, Bill Clinton proved
oblivious to the simple fact that
the president's tax-cutting poli-
cies have given the United
States the fastest growing econ-
omy in the world. His obsession
with tax increases would
plunge the U.S. into the reces-
sion that he left behind when he
and his wife slipped away from
the White House' with a few
national treasures in their
trunks. We hoped then that he
was gone. He wasn't.
Will he never go away?

It's advice he failed to heed
for himself when he was gover-
nor of Arkansas. Then he just
resorted to his frequent M.O.
and lied, telling the voters that
he was going to serve out his
full term when he had no real
intention of doing so - if he
could help it.
But Arkansas is not New
York, and the relatively
unknown Bill Clinton of 1990
is not the Hillary Clinton of
2005. Hillary must come
squarely face to face with an
unpleasant fact: If she won't
commit to serving a full term in
the Senate, she may not' win
reelection to the seat.
At first, it looked as if she
could skate by without a full
commitment since she faced
relatively weak opposition. Ed
Cox, Nixon's son-in-law, and
John Spencer, former Yonkers
mayor, were not the sort to con-
front Hillary with a potent chal-

her hands.

pro-gun control,
pro-affirmative
action, pro-gay
civil unions and
.pro-immigration,
Hillary cannot
use any of her
trusty hot-button
.'issues to dismiss
her. And, as a
)M MORRIS woman, Pirro is
in an excellent
MORRIS position to chal-
lenge Hillary on
all of her core
issues.
Already, sint:e Pirro
announced - and despite her
embarrassing 32 seconds of
silence while she groped for her
speech text - the Westchester
Republican, a district attorney,
has closed the gap with Hillary.
The Democratic senator led
Pirro by a gigantic 30-point
margin, 61-31 percent, before
Jeanine announced. But after-
ward Pirro trailed by only 55-
34.
Most senators can escape
having to declare that they will
serve out a full term. But
Hillary can't because of the
unique way she came to New
York state. Had the first lady
,decided to run for senator in
Delaware or Indiana or some
such state, voters would have
assumed she just moved in to
run. But she moved to New
York state and assured us all
that she was vindicating a life-
long dream to move to the Big
Apple. So many people have
done so, and New Yorkers' egos
are such that they believed that
Hillary had just felt the same
magic gravitational pull the city
seems to exert on people.
But now she is using New
York state as a steppingstone.
As Pirro said in her announce-
ment (the part of the text she
could find), "Hillary asked us to


put out the welcome mat and
we did so. But now she wants
us to become a doormat and
that we will never do."
Polls show that 60 percent of
New Yorkers do not want
Hillary to run for president even
as 55 percent say they will vote
for her for the Senate. They
know that a senator is AWOL
when she goes for the top prize
Neither Kerry nor Lieberman
nor Gephardt nor Edwards was
seen much around the Capitol
when their candidacies beck-
oned. Despite good attendance
records beforehand, they rarely
showed up for votes. As a pres-
idential candidate, Hillary will
be off in Iowa, New Hampshire,
Florida and other states rather
than in New York or
Washington working for the
people she was elected to repre-
sent. It's just the nature of
things.
SArmed with the doubts of
New Yorkers. about Hillary's
fealty and protected by her
social liberalism, Pirro. will
make a very effective chal-
lenger. She will almost certain-
ly make the race closer than the
12 points that separated Hillary
from her 2000 Republican chal-
lenger, Rep. Rick Lazio. And
Pirro will make her work hard
and spend tens of millions of
dollars.
And she might just beat
Hillary. Which raises the ques-
tion: Why is Hillary running for
reelection to a job she wants to
leave? New Yorkers will all be
asking, so Hillary might want to
ask herself.

Red Devils stagger to 5-0


Beat Poinciana in ugly homecoming game for best start since 1988


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun .
AVON PARK - The feeling
was indescribable.
Rafael Johnson and Kaneef
Caldwell had just accounted for
238. yards of offense, scoring
two touchdowns apiece. The
Avon Park special teams had
blazed the Poinciana punting
unit throughout the game,
blocking two kicks while recov-
ering a fumble on another
which set up a Red Devil touch-
down. The Devils had just set a
season-high in points scored,
ripping through Poinciana, 39-
Avon Park 20, and gaining
9 over 400 yards of
.3 offense on home-
Poindana coming night.

that could erase
the fact that the
Up Next Devils had six

head, committed five turnovers,
and were penalized nine times
over the course of the night
It was understandably diffi-
cult for head coach T.C.
Cousins to describe his mood
after the game.
"I never worry about my
team because I know they're
going to play hard," Cousins
said. "We've just got to play
smarter. We were sloppy at
times, but at times we were
dominant.,,Ve- were cli4ing

opened but it's just practice,
practice, practice and we'll fix
it."
Regardless, a win is always a
win and Johnson's performance
on both sides of the ball -
catching a touchdown pass and
intercepting anotrhir for thd
same result - gave Cousins
plenty to rave about.
"I'm telling you, he is our
football team," he said of the
senior star. "He's as big of a
part of our football team as
we've ever had. He does it on
offense, defense, special teams.


He's the catalyst of our team."
Two of the first three times
Johnson touched the ball, he put
the Devils on the scoreboard.
The lone exception came on his
first catch for a 23-yard gain
down. the sideline on Avon
; Park's i',.ond Jive.
By that time, the Devils were
already in an early hole when
Poinciana's Hardy Lorenzo
grabbed an interception on the
first play of the game and the
Eagles, who have just one win
the past two seasons, capital-
ized with a 40-yard, five-play


drive to put the first points on
the board.
. Avon, Park finally answered,
however, with five minutes left
in the first quarter when three
runs up the middle by James
Young took his team down to
the Eagles' 18-y ird line. Hill-
then hit Johnson froshi-That dis- .
tance to tie it, 6-6.
Three plays later, Johnson
gave the Devils their first lead
of the game, stepping in front of
a Tyler pass and taking it 34-

You still have

a lot to prove,

Red Devils

Congratulations, Red
Devils.
You've started your season
5-0, the first Avon Park team
to do that since the 1988 state
championship team and just
the sixth team in Red Devil
history to go undefeated in the
first half of the season.
You have an impressive
shutout win over defending
Class 1A state champ Fort
Meade and a breathtaking
comeback win over
Frostproof, and you managed
to win by 19 points Friday
night despite playing your
worst game of the year.
That's the good news.
The bad-news is, none of
that really means anything.
SAs coach T.C. Cousins told
you following Friday night's
sloppy win over Poinciana,
your real season hasn't even
started yet. It starts with next
week's game at DeSoto, the

Four turnovers lead to

25 Frostproof points

BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
FROSTPROOF - What' was sup-
posed to be a turnaround season for Lake
Placid has instead been defined so far by
turnovers.
Two weeks after fumbling 10 times in
a 40-0 loss to Okeechobee, the Green
Dragons fumbled away their first two
possessions of the game Friday, resulting
in a 13-0 Frostproof lead less than a
minute into a 45-19 win for the Bulldogs
on their homecoming night.
"I think we're going to start practicing
fumbling," Lake Placid head coach Shaw
Maddox quipped. "That way we won't
turn it over in the game, instead of prac-
ticing not fumbling."
Lake Placid's first two drives of the
second half ended via fumble as well, and
Frostproof piled up a total of 25 points off
Green Dragon turnovers.
"We wanted to try to get momentum on
our side, and the turnovers definitely


helped us out," Frostproof head coach
Ben Maddox said. "Take the penalties
away, I feel like we played a pretty good
game."
While the Bulldogs (2-1) committed a
disconcerting 17 penalties for 145 yards,
it was a 15-yard unsportsmanlike foul
Against Lake Placid (1-3) that defined the
Dragons' frustration.
Ahead only 13-6 and
Frostproof facing second-and-38 from

Sond quarter, Frostproof
Lake Placid quarterback Cedric Cox

At home vs. enough to give the
Mulberry on Bulldogs the first down that
Friday led to a touchdown and a
21-6 lead with 1:47 left
before halftime.
"That's the only way they could get a
first down," Shaw Maddox lamented to
his players at the time.
Lake Placid answered swiftly on the
next drive, and with starting quarterback

There's something missing
on my radio dial, and it isn't
because my antenna's broken.
This time of year back home
in Appalachia, the AM dial is
replete with high school foot-
ball on Friday nights. If you're
looking for a talk station, or
one that plays big band music,
chances are you'll instead find
the surprisingly professional
call of a clash between two
mountain powerhouses.
You'll also come across
plenty of folksy calls from
backwater schools, and the
market oversaturation, as well
as the fact it squeezes out a lot
of other programming, can lead
to some frustration. Even if
you're a sports fan, you'll
probably find yourself out of
luck if you're looking for a


Friday night Major League
Baseball playoff game.
Still, I'd rather have too
much football than not enough,
which is precisely what we
have here. If you want to know
how the Blue Streaks, Green
Dragons or Red Devils are
doing, and you can't follow
them to all of their road games,
you're out of luck.
While this situation helps
sell newspapers, thereby put-
ting food on my table, I think
we could spare the loss of a
few single-copy sales if
Highlands County high school
games were on radio, just as
the schools themselves could
no doubt withstand a few lost
walk-up ticket purchases.
Yet if a decrease in atten-
dance is what fuels fears that


TIME OUT
Chuck Myron

keep the games off the radio,
such anxiety is misguided. We
live in a multimedia age in
which infor:ntii.n creates
interest.,
If sports weren't shown on
television, talked about on
radio or written about in news-


papers and on the Internet as
they are, our culture probably
wouldn't place the such an
emphasis on them. Media cre-
ates buzz, buzz creates excite-
ment and excitement drives
people to attend games.
What's more, radio broad-
casts can enhance the prestige
and spirit of a community. It
means something if your
school has its own radio con-
tract where I'm from. If you
don't have to share a "game of
the week" package, you can
say you're big time.
And if your high school is as
lucky and important as my
alma mater, it has not one, but
two different stations carrying
its entire schedule.
The quality of the announc-
ers lends credence to the mar-


quee effect. Sure, there are
plenty of homers, but a surpris-
ing and reassuring number of
broadcasters strive for fairness
and accuracy.
Working with one of these
people, Paul Meador, enhanced
the experience I had covering
football, baseball and basket-
ball in Morristown, Tenn. To
know that 1 wasn't alone fol-
lowing the teams reassured me
that people cared about the
beat I was on.
Still, I know Highlands
County is passionate about
sports, and therefore deserves
to be served with radio cover-
age, just like the folks back
home.

News-Sun, Sunday, September 25, 2005


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Avon Park's Leroy Sanderspartially blocks a Poinciana punt in the
end zone Friday night.


DEVILS
Continued from 1E
yards to the end zone.
The early momentum that
Poinciana had previously been
riding was now gone and it
seemed as though the Devils
would have to make a mistake
for the Eagles to regain some
lost ground. A mistake is exact-
ly what they got when a busted
snap on a punt gave Poinciana a
first down at Avon Park's 4-
yard line. It only took one play
for Lorenzo to bounce through
the pile and find the end zone.
That was as close to a win as
the Eagles would get, however.
From that point of the game, the
Devils did all they could to put


the crowd at ease, holding the
visitors to only 150 yards of
offense and outscoring
Poinciana 25-6 in the final three
quarters.
The march began when the
Devils opened the second frame
in style, airing it out for the first
time all night. Hill was called
on to pass five times throughout
the eight-play drive, connecting
four times to three different
receivers on a drive he ended
himself with a sneak to put the
Devils up by six.
By halftime, the Devils
pushed through another score
when Young scampered
through with a 5-yard touch-
down run with less than a
minute remaining in the half.
After the break, Caldwell

first of three District 12-3A games.
And those three games are the only games
that matter.
Two weeks after the DeSoto game comes the
matchup against Hardee, followed two weeks
later with the showdown against Sebring. Those
are the games you have to win.
If you don't, the perfect start to this season
will bd nothing but an historical footnote.
Speaking of history, let's take a look back a
decade or so at some other Red Devil teams that
got off to good starts. Hopefully, you can take a
lesson from what happened to them.
In 1995, when you current players were in
elementary school, the Devils got off to a 4-0
start. Just like you, they had two shutouts. Just
like you, they had a hard-fought win over
Frostproof.
Then they played the DeSoto.Bulldogs (on
the road, just like you will next week) and lost
- 20-7. Things just fell apart after that..Those
Devils lost five of their next six games, includ-
ing getting hammered 50-7 by Hardee, and fin-
ished the regular season with a 34-0 loss at
Sebring. They somehow managed to make the
playoffs, but were knocked out in the first
round.
Two years later, the 1997 team was 4-0 when
they met an undefeated Hardee team, which is
what you will likely face in a few weeks. The
Wildcats walked away with their perfect season
intact after a 24-7 win. Yes, that Avon Park team
bounced back and made a run to the state semi-
finals, but not before losing to Sebring to close
out the regular season.
Those Red Devils had a luxury that you cur-
rent Devils do not. Hardee, DeSoto and Sebring
weren't in the district back then, so those losses
were just bumps on the road. They weren't sea-
son killers, like similar results will be this year.
So take note, 2005 Red Devils. You still have
a lot of work to do if you want this to be a sea-
Sson to remember. The bad snaps, the turnovers,
the breaking team rules and getting suspended
S- all those things you were guilty of this week
- will get you killed when you play the three


Associated Press
MIAMI - Only two weeks
into the season, the Carolina
Panthers and Miami Dolphins
already seem like teams on the
cusp of an identity crisis.
The Panthers committed four
turnovers and were penalized
11 times in a sloppy Week 1
loss to New Orleans, then
played almost perfectly in their
last outing and stunned two-
time defending Super Bowl
champion New England -
dealing the Patriots only their
third loss in 36 games.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins
have been somewhat Jekyll and
Hyde so far. They piled up 426
yards on the way to dominating
Denver, then managed 235
yards in a penalty-fest, losing at
the Jets last weekend - scoring


27 fewer points than they did in
the opener.
"It's a big game for both
teams," said Dolphins ,defen-
sive end Jason Taylor. "Not to
sound like an Under Armour
commercial, but we need to
protect our own house against a
really good football team."
Each team has incessantly
pledged consistency, yet. bar-
ring a tie, one will find itself
grappling with a 1-2 record by
late this afternoon.
"I think they are well-
coached. They've got talented
players. And we're playing at
their place, so we're going to
have a hostile environment,"
Carolina coach John Fox said.
"Everything concerns me every
week, regardless of who we
play."

Caldwell had accumulated
only 37 yards on seven carries
when he took his 10th handoff
and went 90 yards untouched
for the biggest gain of the night
- and the season - to put the

teams that matter the most.
You can get away with that stuff when you're
playing an 0-4 Poinciana team. Against a
Hardee team that hasn't lost a regular-season
game in what seems like forever, however, it
will get you beat by 30 points. Or more.
So, Red Devils, enjoy your homecoming win
for a few hours. Pat yourself on the back for
going through half your season unbeaten.
Then forget about everything that's happened
up until now.
You're 5-0 and you've done well. If you want
to be 6-0 or 8-0 or 10-0, you're going to have to
do even better.

Carolina found itself in this
position a year ago, and simply
cannot afford any reprise of its
'04 effort. That team, coming
off a Super Bowl loss to the
Patriots, also lost, its opener,
rebounded with a big win in
Week 2 over a highly touted
Kansas City team, but lost its
next six games and missed the
playoffs.
The Panthers speak highly of
the Dolphins, rebuilding after a
disastrous 4-12 campaign a year
ago.
"I don't know what every-
body else is watching, but these
guys have some players who
can put up some points," said
Panthers safety Mike Minter.
"These guys ain't no pushovers
and we shouldn't be thinking
that."


Long casts, trips not needed to catch big bass


Being able to make long
casts while bass fishing isn't
always necessary, though
sometimes it is desirable. Most
of the time, we are in a place
where a medium-length cast �
will put our lure within range
of the intended quarry. I can,
when needed, throw a lure a
good distance, depending on
its weight and the weight of
the line I am using.
I know that most other
anglers will say the same. An
angler recently set a new U.S.
casting record while competing
in a Southeast Regional
Tournament at Wilmington,
N.C. Tommy Farmer's record-
breaking cast of 839.25 feet
would have covered nearly
three football fields. The previ-
ous long standing record was
821 feet.
It just sounds impossible,
but if you want to try to outdo
Tommy, here's the equipment
he used. I don't know what
kind of rod he had but the reel
was an Abu Garcia 5500C3CT
Mag Elite loaded with .28 mil-
limeter diameter monofilament
line and a 4'2-ounce weight.
You don't need extremely
long casts to catch large bass
right here in Highlands County.
We have some of the best
waters for largemouth bass
fishing found anywhere in
North America. Lakes Jackson,
Istokpoga,'June, Placid,
Francis and Josephine are great
fishing waters, along with 90
other lakes in the county.
All bass anglers want to
catch that huge trophy to hang
on the wall for friends to

Quay Crenshaw sidelined for
the rest of the night with a con-
cussion, Conlin Veley stepped
in and fired a touchdown pass
to George Rasmussen.
"He's going to be the future,"
Shaw Maddox said of Veley
and the quarterback position.
"We've still got George; he can
play in there some, too, but I
want to give Conlin a chance to
get his feet wet."
Still, the second half fumbles
and Frostproof's quarterback
play proved too much.
"He did a great job at quar-
terback," Ben Maddox said of
Cox, who threw for three touch-
downs and ran for two more.
"His strong point's option, and
we didn't run a lot of it, because
we want to work on passing. He
did well."
Ben Maddox experimented
with his offensive personnel,
shifting Carlton Thomas, who
had 207 rushing yards last
week, to wide receiver.
"He's our running back first,
but we want to get him used to
playing receiver, slot, all over,"
Ben Maddox said. "All eyes
focus on him. It's going to open
up other things."

Orioles tell


Palmeiro


he's done
Associated Press
BALTIMORE - Rafael
Palmeiro's tumultuous season
came to an end Friday when the
Baltimore Orioles, tired of the
distraction stemming from his
suspension for steroids, told
him he was no longer welcome
on the team.
The decision came on the
same day Palmeiro was sched-
uled to return from spending
time at home rehabilitating his
right knee and left ankle. But
the Orioles figured it was best
they cut their ties for now.
"He wanted to come back
and play, but I think in this
instance we had to do what we
felt was best for the rest of the
players out there," Orioles
executive vice president Jim
Beattie said.
The abrupt end to Palmeiro's
season came one day after it
was learned that he cited a vita-
min he received from teammate
Miguel Tejada as possibly
causing the positive test.
"I know I'm clean. I'm not
guilty," Tejada said. "I use the
same thing, and I've been
checked for steroids three
times."

admire as he does a bit of
deserved bragging about the
battle the monster put up.
California tries to claim the
title of "bass capital of the
world," but there are a lot of
huge bass right here in our
county's lakes.
Lake June is a habitat for
trophy bass, having given up
several in the 11- to 15-pound
range over the years. Working
a big wild shiner in and
through the.weed beds of
Istokpoga has produced an
untold number of giant bass.
There have to be a lot of huge
.bass still swimming around in
those weed beds just waiting
for someone to toss a wild
shiner to them.
Though not in our county,
Lake Arbuckle is still in our
local area. Arbuckle is a beau-
tiful stretch of water. Whether
you catch anything or not, you
can't help but enjoy the day
fishing and boating on
Arbuckle. The big bass are
there waiting for you to pitch a
shiner back in those lily pads


for 97 yards, and eighth-grade
running back Nickell Roby
shared the bulk of the offensive
production with Cox.
"It makes us more than one-
dimensional," Ben Maddox
said of the offensive tinkering
he undertook with coordinator
Clay Brantley. "We were real
one-dimensional last week. I
think we ran (Thomas) 22
times, and now we're able to
throw to (Thomas), and run
some other people. I just think
it's a more balanced attack."
The Dragons wish they could
be so versatile. They lost their
second running back to serious
injury this season when O.J.
Williams dislocated his wrist on
the first play of the game, and
finished with fewer than 20
healthy players in uniform.
."We've got kids out with
mono, we've got kids out with
strep throat; right now, we're
just struggling," Shaw Maddox
said, himself hoarse. "We're
still just trying to catch up."
Unfortunately for the
Dragons, their bodies picked
the wrong time to falter.
"We're in the toughest
stretch of our season - this
week, next week (at home
against Mulberry) and the fol-
lowing week (at home against
Avon Park)," Shaw Maddox
said.


and when one grabs that bait,
stripping the line from your
reel, you just hang on and try
to catch your breath. Its a great
feeling.
I have caught a lot of-bass in
Arbuckle and I've also broken
a lot of lines there. Early in the
morning, top-water baits are
good around the cattails and
lily pads. When the sun gets
higher, soft plastic lures,
worms and jigs work well.
Around standing timber, toss a
soft plastic bait to the shady
side of the trees and let it settle
to the bottom. Then lift it a few
inches and let it fall back.
You won't find a big bass at
the base of every tree, but
sooner or later, you are going
to connect. Lake Arbuckle has
a lot of huge bass hiding in
those plentiful lily pads. You
could travel to all those famous
lakes you see on TV programs
and maybe catch some large
bass, but you are just as apt to
catch that trophy bass right
here in our back yard.
I know what kind of fishing
we have right here, so I am not
going to any far-off places to
bass fish. I do travel to
Kentucky once each year to
visit and fish with my brother-
in-law, but that is more for the
visit than fishing. I hope you
get out on your favorite lake.
There is a big old bass waiting
for you out there, and I hope
you let me know and send me
a picture when you catch him.

FEATURE OF THE WEEK: "NHL 2K6"


Hockey,


"NHL 2K6"
2K Games; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $19.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone 10+ (violence)
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
r****� Score: 4.5 out of 5
Taking on EA Sports with an "any-
thing you can do, I can do better"
attitude, 2K Games does just that
with "NHL 2K6," a slightly to flagrantly
superior hockey game in most every
respect (except visual gloss, maybe).
Foremost is in-game control, with an icon-
passing system that, when activated,
assigns a controller button to each player
on the ice which, in turn, allows you to set
up and execute tic-tac-toes and one-timers
on the fly with a tap or double tap or two.
"2K6" also lets you change defensive
lines separately from offensive lines (as
opposed to a whole bench-swapping clus-
ter-puck) and also set up and invoke pre-
set plays for each, on-the-fly like setting
up a screen or cheating a winger up the
boards for an outlet pass (though said
winger seems oblivious to the fact two-
line passes are now legal, so he hovers at
the center line like a fool).
"2K6" also has the better presentation,
overall, despite having lost the ESPN
license and all its branded TV gimmicks

"NHL 06"
EA Sports; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $29.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone 10+ (mild violence)
***- Score: 3.5 out of 5
Every year EA Sports releases a pretty
good hockey game, each one offering mod-
est improvements over the previous one:
buffed visuals, tweaked (not necessarily
improved) gameplay mechanics, addition-
al play modes and, most important, updat-
ed rosters and rules (example: two-line
passes, yes; free-range goalies, no).
While this inevitably relegates each pre-
vious iteration to unapologetic obsoles-
cence, at least EA is setting the price point
below average these days, jumping on the
"2K" games' "value pricing" wagon to
remain.competitive. As expected, this


and de facto familiarity to none other than
EA. But this left them to pursue the quin-
tessential commentary team of Bob Cole
and Harry Neal of "Hockey Night in
Canada" fame (famous in Canada, at least)
which, as you might surmise, simply oozes


year's version, "NHL 06," does all that and
then throws in a sack of pucks for good
measure, adding some remarkable double-
thumb dekes and plausible fake-outs to the
skills arsenal (for select superstars, any-
way).
Cool, too, are the artificial defensemen


eh?


authenticity due to the inexorable collo-
cates of hockey and Canada.
Also notable, "NHL 2K6" is a fill 10
bucks cheaper than "NHL 06." Never mind
that "2K6"' is the better game, 10 bucks is 10
bucks.


that actually show jurisprudence by deli-
cately mauling the guy with the puck.
rather than just going for broke with a hit-
or-miss hip-check or flying tackle.
It's not a major overhaul, just theexpect-
ed puff and tweak, leaving room for
improvement so you'll buy "NHL 07" next,
year - maybe the goalies will stop acting
like overzealous, pratfall clowns when con-.
Sfronted.with a dribbling puck? One can
hope. Meanwhile, "06" retains the
"Dynasty mode" from last year, which pre-
sumably appeals to armchair GMs, but for
everyone else the actual hockey still feels
overtly fast and furiously fun, downplaying
the simulation aspect and going for wide-
open, West Coast-style gameplay that can
actually net you a Stanley Cup instead of
just a Red Mile of disappointed fans.
