By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

LAKE PLACID
T his is a story about a family hoping and a
community helping.
When Kenneth Martin's sister died in
2000, she left behind two sons and a daughter.
The boys were 9 and 5 years old, the little girl
was 7.
The children went to live with their grandpar-
ents. The grandfather died within six months,
the grandmother in 2003.
For the next two years the children were
thrown from pillar to post, going from one rela-
tive to another, and even, briefly, into foster
care. Worst of all, they were split apart, with the
girl going one way and the brothers another.
Martin and his wife, Kathy, became increas-
ingly concerned. They wanted nothing more
than to be able to take in all three of the chil-


dren, but there yere complications.
They were already the parents of two sons
with special needs, for one thing, and they live
in a three-bedroom mobile home for another.
While the two boys could have their own
room, the girl would have to sleep on the couch.
The Martins succeeded in gaining custody of
the children, but it was on the condition that
they expand their home by at least a room.
Taking in three more children, who arrived
with little belongings, had been an expensive
proposition. Even though Martin is a supervisor
in the nuclear industry, they couldn't afford to
renovate their house.
That's when social workers and the
Children's Advocacy Center became involved,
helping coordinate the family's effort to build on
a room.

Those in conservation
areas won't get urban
services
By PHIL ATWNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - People are
buying up property in
Highlands County, thinking
they'll build a house someday.
Some don't realize they are
buying in conservation areas,
where regulations will limit
urban services: Roads, water
and sewer.
Development Services
Director' Jim Polatty said as
soon as people move in, they
start demanding services, espe-


cially in areas that never had or
never will, such 8s conservation
areas.
Since December .2002, the
county has required anyone
who wanted to build in a con-
servation area
to sign an affi-
davit stating he
or she won't
ask the county
for a paved
road. They
must also sub-
mit a site plan POLATTY
showing their
home site will be "firewise" -
clear of underbrush and other
fuel that could bring a brush fire
to their doorstep.


On Wednesday, members of
the Natural Resources Advisory
Commission said none of this
will do any good if a new owner
doesn't know the restrictions.
Some new owners have cleared
land illegally, because they did-
n't know the rules, or have built
in flood plains, because they
didn't recognize topography or
wetland plants.
One solution, commission
members said, is to have exist-
ing landowners sign affidavits
stating they understand and
accept the restrictions on their
land. Then they would file those
affidavits with the deed at the
Clerk of the Courts records
office.

the Run to the Heartland. The event ends at 8 p.m. today. See more photos on page 3A.


That wa.. any hew buyer %k ill
know the restrictions on the
land bN doing a title search.
Loopholes
Developers in established
subdivisions must provide
roads, water and either sewer or
septic tanks. Some developers
are getting around those
requirements by selling agricul-
tural land in 10-acre parcels,
Polatty said.
Basically, the land ,is still
zoned agricultural and can have
one house on it, but it's market-
ed like a subdivision, Polatty
said. Buyers may not know they
won't have infrastructure as
part of the deal.


Conservation
In some areas of the county,
people are competing with- the
state to buy lots in established
subdivisions. Once the state
owns a significant portion of
the land in an area, it may be
deemed conservation, which
will restrict what landowners
can build.
In at least four areas in the
county, the state is buying land
where the property is designat-
ed for agricultural land use and
zoned for residential districts:
Carter Creek, the Homes
Avenue Scrub, Lake Apthorpe,
and Leisure Lakes.

Denton solution


By PHIL ATHNGER

SEBRING - County
Administrator Carl Cool rec-
ommends county commis-
sioners take no action on Lake
Denton Tuesday, unless he
has more answers for them by
then.
He has a number of short-
term solutions that, if success-
ful, should take care of some
of the problems.
Residents want all public
access closed, because of
abuses by many of the visi-
tors, including illegal parking,
littering, public drinking, and
people using the bathroom,
changing clothes or practicing
lewd behavior in public.
Parks and Recreation
Director Vicki Pontius has
proposed some ways to han-
dle the problems, but Cool is


not recommending her long-
range plan at this time.
County commissioners
plan to discuss the issue
Tuesday at the regular meet-
ing: 9 a.m. at the Government
Center, 600 S. Commerce
Ave., Sebring.
Parking and crowds
On Sept. 21, Pontius sent a
memo suggesting the county
go ahead and install a 30-foot
by 210-foot parking area -
21 spaces, all numbered.A $5
parking fee would be 'paid
using a self-service iron
ranger kiosk, a drop box to
collect fees similar to that at
' the R.K. Butler Campground.
Each person would receive a
verification ticket to place in

Copeland

expected

back from

hospital in

two weeks
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Lacey
Copeland - burned on his
arms, legs, face and head
from a tar fire - may
return home as soon as two
weeks from now.
He's making slow
progress, his older brother,
Warren Copeland, said:
"He's getting better."
Lacey Copeland, 33, has
been at Tampa General
Hospital since Aug. 24,
after a flash fire from heat-
ed tar burned him and
coworker Don Glessing,
71. While Glessing has
been back at work for about
two weeks, Copeland only
got out of the intensive care
unit last week, his brother
said.
Friday afternoon,
Copeland began physical
therapy. He has skin grafts
on his legs to help heal
third-degree burns. His
arms have the same severe
bums, but are healing on
their own. Fortunately, his
face and head only received
first-degree bums.
"We're just thankful to
have him," Warren
Copeland said.
Flash fire
Copeland has a 5,000-
gallon tank with tar inside
and a firebox set in the base
of it at the main facility for
Mid-Florida Portable Toilet
Services of U.S. 98 in
Sebring. He and others
started a wood fire from old
pallets and pine tree debris
in the box to melt the tar,
Fire Investigator Gene
Walker said.
Allegedly, Copeland was
trying to melt and remove
the tar from the tank so the
tank -c'ulld bs citenporjar
waste storage.
Copeland had one end
jacked up and opened the
hatch, Walker said.
According to witnesses,
smoke puffed out and
sucked back into the tank as
it heated up. Eventually, the
vapors found an ignition
source and exploded.
Warren Copeland said
the fire just got too hot, and
may have ignited the tar
inside the tank. Fumes in
the tank built up and came
out the only way they
could: Through the bottom
hatch.
Copeland and Glessing
were 10-15 feet from the
tank, so the flash caught
them, Walker said.
'Drop and Roll'
Glessing, who got first-,
second-, and third-degree
bums on his legs, remem-
bers only being concerned
about putting out the flames
on Lacey Copeland.
"I never thought about
myself," he said. "I tried to
get him to drop and roll."
Fortunately, the compa-
ny had a working fire hose
nearby. He and others had
Lacey Copeland put out
within seconds.

County looking into creating


zoning specifically for airport


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - If county com-
missioners approve a new zon-
ing category, it may solve some
problems at Sebring Regional
Airport.
On Tuesday, commissioners
discussed creating a zoning cat-
egory specifically for the air-
port: A-1. It would require a
500-foot buffer zone between
the airport and surrounding
zoning. More intense industrial
uses, such as the airport's indus-
trial park, would not be allowed
in the buffer zone.
Less intense uses could be
allowed anywhere, on the prop-
erty, including the buffer zone,
according to Development
Services Director Jim Polatty.
Airports tend to have various
commercial and industrial uses
in one area, near residential or
agricultural land. Attorney
Mike Swaine, representing the
airport, said new tenants want


to move in right away and have
zoning set for their business.
Getting a lot of property uses
under one category, just for the
airport, would help move them
in quicker, Swaine said.
Swaine added that the buffer
should also keep the airport
from encroaching on the
SpringLake Golf Resort.
Swaine said he and Atirport offi-
cials have worked with mem-
bers of the community to
address concerns.
"We have a good working
relationship with the residents
of Spring Lake," he said. "We
don't want to damage that."
Lesco, for example, dogs
cold compounding, or mixing,
on site, but does not heat up any
of its products. The concern,
Swaine said, is not to have any-
thing that produces fumes.
After discussing some con-
cerns about the change, com-
missioners set a second hearing
on the new zoning category for


Oct. 11 at the commission
boardroom at 600 S. Commerce
St. Sebring.
The Avon Park Municipal
Airport has light industrial zon-
ing. City Manager C.B. Shirey
said the airport allows distribu-
tion and manufacture of fin-
ished products, welding, fabri-
cation, recycling, warehouses,
and printing and publishing.
It also requires a landscape
buffer - vegetation with a
small berm - with size
dependent on the adjacent land
use. If the' airport industry abuts
commercial property, the regu-
lations on the buffer are less
stringent.
Animal control
Commissioner Bob Bullard
was concerned about some of
the prohibitions under the pro-
posed county airport zoning.
Storage of dead animals would
be barred, but that's exactly
what the county's animal con-

SEBRING - Highlands
County will have to pay attor-
neys fees and court costs for the
case brought by Preston Colby
against the county in April.
On Sept. 23, Circuit Court
Judge J. David Langford
upheld his ruling in Colby's
favor, and denied a request for
reconsideration from the coun-
ty.
On April 28 this year,
Langford ruled that despite
confusion between the two par-
ties, Colby did not receive the
records he wanted from the
county.
The county was told to make
original documents available on
the minutes taken of meetings
of the Hurricane Executive
Decision Group," which Colby

Administrator Tom Portz,
testifying for the county said
the group merely consisted of
heads of county departments,
and local organizations that met
last year for conference calls on
approaching hurricanes with
the Department of Community
Affairs, Division of Emergency
Management.
Nevertheless, Colby asked to
review their records, since he
never had the opportunity to
view the original documents.
If Colby discovers that the,
hurricane group made decisions
on what to do during the hurril-
canes, lie wants them prevented
from meeting without giving
proper notice.

SEBRING - Residential development has moved one
step closer to the absolute border with Sebring Regional
Airport.
County commissioners approved rezoning 26.18 acres on
the west side of Madrid Drive on Tuesday from agricultural
use to a residential district.
Madrid Drive became the alternative entrance to the air-
port when the county and airport widened Airport Road,
now complete.
John Steven Springer, represented by Troy W. Finnegan,
wanted to divide the area into 41 lots for single-family
homes. While the original rezoning request was for quarter-
acre lots, Development Services Director Jim Polatty said
Tuesday that Springer wants to have half-acre or larger lots.
The Planning and Zoning Commission had recommended
the change.

OBITUARIES


Black charged
with intent to
distribute
cocaine
LAKE PLACID-
Investigating a possible
prowler, Highlands County
sheriff's deputies discovered
a possible drug dealer and
made an arrest.
Deputies received reports
of a prowler at 9:03 p.m. last
Monday in the area of
Freedom Marine in Lake
Placid, near Highway Park.
When they arrived, they
found a gray 1991 Buick
parked next to the fence and
the rear of the business, in a
driveway.
At that moment, a white
1997 Chevrolet pulled up
next to the patrol car.
According to arrest reports, a
man, later identified as
Octavis Lavar Black, 25, of
Lake Placid, got out. He
walked up to the deputy and
asked what was the problem,'
because the gray car was his
and it had broken down.
The deputy asked for iden-
tification and called it in to
dispatch. He then told Black


there was a complaint about a
prowler at the business. Black
restated that his car broke
down and he pushed it there,
reports said.
The deputy asked to search
Black's car. Black said yes,
and the deputy found a brown
paper bag above the driver's
side visor.
Inside it was a white plastic
bag containing 37 individual
bags of a white powder sub-
stance, ,vhich field-tested
positive for cocaine, arrest
reports said. Total weight was
22 grams.
The Friendship Missionary
Baptist Church is at
Crestmore Drive and Bryant
Street, and was about 100 feet
from the car.
Black was charged with
possession of cocaine with
intent to sell of deliver within

families ended up landing two
men in 'jail on aggravated
assault charges.
Carmine Scott Manganiello,
49, and Eric Shavon Williams,

both arrested and charged
Tuesday. Williams will turn 18
on Nov. 5, 2005. Both are being

with a deadly weapon. Williams
is facing one charge of aggra-
vated assault with a deadly
weapon and one count of carry-
ing a concealedweapon.
At 7:47 a.m. Tuesday,
Manganiello told Highlands
County sheriff's deputies that
people in a brown Chevrolet
were firing at him. Lake Placid
.police found the vehicle at the
Royal Palms Bowling Center.
When they got Williams out
of the car, he told them he had a
gun in his pocket, arrest reports
said.
It was a 9mm Beretta in his
right front pocket.
During the investigation,
deputies and police officers
learned the shooting may have
been in retaliation for an attack

Manganiello made on
Williams' mother.
Allegedly, at 7:30 a.m. that
day, Williams' mother and her
4-year-old son were inside her
green van near the liquor store
in Highway Park.
Manganiello
approached
them in a white
Dodge pickup.
She told
deputies their
families have
MANGANIELLO known each
other for years.
They talked for several min-
utes, but then he became angry
and accelerated, spun his truck
around in a "doughnut," and
sped toward them. He hit the
van in the right rear comer.
He then
backed up.
Fearing he was
going to hit
them again,
she and the
child jumped
out of the van

ning alongside the liquor store
to get away from him.

turned his truck just before hit-

reports said.
From the street, deputies
found glass and part of a win-
dow latch that matched a bro-
ken latch on the van. The van
also had white paint transfer on
the rear corner
Another independent witness
backed up her story, reports
said.
When Williams heard about
it, he grabbed his gun, put it in
his pocket and pulled on a long
sweater to hide it from plain
view, arrest reports said.
He got friends to drive him to
Manganiello's home, and later
found him at the corner of
Walnut Avenue and Mulberry
Avenue in Sylvan Shores.
Manganiello was seated in the
driver's seat of his truck..
Williams told police he fired
one round at the driver's door
from the passenger seat of the
brown car. After that first shot,
the gun jammed. He pulled the
gun's slide back and put it back
in his pocket and left, reports
said.
Williamis allegedly told
police no one else in the car
knew about his gun or his inten-
tions until he pulled it out and
started firing.

Local Red Cross collects


$100,000 for Katrina victims


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County has proven its generosi-
ty to this year's hurricane vic-
tims.
On Wednesday, Art
Harriman, director of the
Highlands County -American
Red Cross Service Center,
announced that local, residents
and businesses have donated
$100,000 to help with
Hurricane Katrina relief.
By contrast, he said the Red
Cross office in neighboring
Polk County, with five times
the population of Highlands
County, has raised $200,000.


He said people can still help
out the local effort. He is
accepting donations and partic-
ipants for the Nov. 5 Red &
White golf Tournament and the
April 1, 2006, Red & White
Ball at newly renovated Harder
Hall.
As always, people may sign
up and get trained as an
American Red Cross disaster
volunteer. For more informa-
tion, call the local service cen-
ter, 1430 Lakeview Drive in
Sebring, at 386-4440.
Scam artists still abound
Even though local people
have been generous, Harriman
said he and other Red Cross


offices all along the Gulf Coast,
from Florida to Texas, have
seen scam artists at work. Some
people have attempted to get
assistance from every Red
Cross office along their way,
after having already received
assistance.
To receive benefits this year,
each adult must have valid
identification and must be able
to show they haven't received
any other Red Cross benefits.
This still has its problems,
Harriman said. In one case,
which appeared to be migrant
workers, only one adult out of
more than a dozen people had
any identification.

Highlands Regional's EEG



Lab receives certification


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
Regional Medical . Center's
Electroencephalography (EEG)
Lab was recently accredited by
the American Board of
Registration of Electroence-
phalographic and Evoked
Potential Technologists
(ABRET).
With its new accreditation,
the HRMC EEG Laboratory
becomes the only accredited lab
in Florida and only one of four
with current accreditations * in
the country. HRMC EEG
Technician Robert Alexander
also becomes the only board-
registered technician in the
county.

- Object believed to
be meteor lights
Associated Press
MIAMI - Experts believe a
meteor was visible along a
large section of the Florida sky-
line Thursday night, although
NASA officials have not con-
firmed what the intensely
bright, fast object exactly was.
The glowing orb was spotted
around 7 p.m.; some who saw it
called county and state officials
to ensure that it wasn't a crash-
ing aircraft.
"This one could've been
from a baseball to a basketball-
sized chunk of space rock that
slammed into our, Earth's
atmosphere at a very high
speed," Jack Horkheimer,
director of the planetarium at
the Miami Museum of Science,
told The Miami Herald.
National Weather Service
meteorologist Barry Baxter
said he isn't sure if the object,
which he believes was a mete-
or, was over Atlantic Ocean
waters or the Florida peninsula.
Bob Cooper, 48, of Dania
Beach was in his backyard
throwing a Frisbee to his dog
when the object --'which he
described as a flaming ball -
caught his eye.


EEG diagnostics," HRMC
Chief Executive Officer Linda
Harrison said. "We are proud to
have them at HRMC. We are
also very pleased to offer this
exceptional service to the com-
munity."
According to ABRET offi-
cials, successful accreditation
means that the HRMC EEG
Laboratory has met strict stan-
dards and is to be recognized as
a place where patients and
physicians can have confidence
they are receiving quality diag-
nostics. , ABRET's Lab
Accreditation process evaluates
technical standards, the quality
of the laboratory's output and
lab management issues. HRMC
physicians Dr. Jaswinder
Khara, Dr. Bridglal Ramkis-
soon and Dr. Anthony
Shydohub have worked very
hard to provide the highest
quality-of patient care.
"This. board certification is
very important to the patients
because the board looks at the


overall quality of the EEG lab,"
said neurologist and EEG
Laboratory Medical Director
Jaswinder Khara. "The quality
comes from excellent technolo-
gy, the performance of the
board certified physicians and
technicians, as well as the labo-
ratory's policies and proce-
dures."
According to Khara, quality
EEG's help physicians to diag-
nose neurological disorders,
such as seizure and their differ-
ent forms and structural and
metabolic disorders.
Highlands Regional Medical.
Center established its lab with
Khara's assistance in 1992. The
HRMC EEG lab saw more that
600 patients last year, which is
a combined total of the previous
three years.
"HRMC is to be commended
for going the extra step to bene-
fit the neurology community
and your patients," ABRET
Laboratory Chairman Dr.
Gregory Fischer said.

Energy companies recognized


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Attention natu-
rally focused on Annett Bus
Lines, when the company
received the Economic
Development Commission's
Business Excellence award
Thursday night.
"We had some really excel-
lent nominees this year," Louise
England, executive director of
the commission, said.
"(Annett Bus Lines) is a
business you like to point to,"


England said. "It's second gen-
eration now, and I think that's
wonderful. It was created in this
county, and has stayed here as it
grew, becoming a source of
' jobs and wealth."
But others were also hon-
ored.
Sprint, Glades Electric, and
Progress Energy all received
Community Service Awards for
their work in hurricane recov-
ery efforts last year.
And John Martz was given a
special appreciation award for
his work as the head of the
Council of 100, a predecessor
of the Economic Development
Commission. It was on Martz's
watch in. 1990 that the council
merged with the Industrial
Development Authority and the
nascent Economic Develop-
ment Commission,, creating a


new public/private pro-business
entity in Highlands County.
In addition to the awards cer-
emony, business consultant
John Spence'gave a 40-minute
presentation on excellence in
leadership and team building.
The key to quality leader-
ship, he said, is to lead by
example, 'with vision, passion
and integrity. Leaders have to
be open to learning, he added,
and able to admit mistakes.
They should be action oriented
while minimizing risks; "relent-
lqss but not ruthless."
England wants to thank all
the sponsors who brought the
evening to life. In particular she
wanted to thank Cross Country
Automotive Services, Progress
Energy and Sprint, who as plat-
inum sponsors, made Spence's
presentation possible.

State mulling

airboat mufflers
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - The
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is
considering requiring mufflers
on airboats.
The, commission voted last
week to come up with an'ew pol-
icy on airboat noise, and will
hold a public hearing on the
issue at its Nov. 30 meeting in
Key Largo.
Airboat owners say their com-
munity generally supports the
use of mufflers, said Jerry
Wetherington, president of the
United Sportsmen - and
Airboaters Alliance.
"Everybody seemed to agree
that the airboat organizations
are going to work toward putting
mufflers on our boats and work
with the manufacturers to devel-
op quieter props," Wetherington
said.


School board begins




desegregation, plans


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
Feb. 10, 1965.

George Douglass, school
superintendent, was instructed
by the Highlands County
School Board Tuesday night to
prepare a plan for the desegre-
gation of the county schools.
Frank Bryant, scho61l board
attorney, will meet with the
board and Douglass Feb. 15, at
8 p.m. to discuss the plan, or
plans, as several will be consid-
ered by the board before one is
accepted.
In order to comply with the
federal court ruling and to con-
tinue to receive federal funds
for Highlands County schools,
the school board must submit a
desegregation plan by March
3rd.


During the past several
weeks, school officials have
met with parent/teacher groups
in Lake Placid, Sebring and
Avon Park, to explain the latest
ruling in school desegregation.
The board adopted the
Vandelism Policy read by
Douglass. Last month, the
board instructed him to prepare
such a policy for their final
approval. The policy calls for
mandatory suspension for 10
days of any student found
guilty of vandelism of any
school property and parents
must pay for damages and for
prosecuting guilty persons who
are not enrolled in school.
Douglass told the board
members that the Highlands
County commissioners had
agreed, by telephone, to pro-


vide $45,000 to $50,000, from
excess fees or race track funds,
to help finance the proposed
Highlands, Hardee Junior
College.
Legislators from Highlands
and Hardee counties will seek
final approval for the Junior
College in the forthcoming leg-
islative session.
To remove the overloads in
the mathematics field and to
reduce the number of teachers
presently teaching out-of-field
subjects, the principals of
Sebring High School and Avon
Park High School were author-
ized to hire an additional math
teacher for each school.
The board instructed
Douglass to contact James
Heim, in regards to building
improvements at the Lake
Placid and Sebring High
schools and the Carver School
and to make recommendations
to the board at the next meeting.
Douglass will also seek recom-
mendations for termite control
at Hopewell, Avon Elementary
and Woodlawn schools.

Economy wobbling from Katrina's blows to consumers


By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON -
Hurricane Katrina has knocked
the economy for a loop, and
whether it revives or slips into
recession depends on whether
nervous consumers are willing
to spend more.
New figures on Friday
showed the storm caused
incomes to fall in August,
reflecting $100 billion in losses
by people who didn't have ade-
quate insurance to cover dam-
age to homes, businesses and
vehicles.
The Commerce report
showed that spending was on
the skids even before Katrina
struck. Soaring gasoline prices
caused consumers to reduce
spending by the largest amount
since the September 2001 ter-
rorist attacks.
The 1 percent drop, after
adjusting for inflation, reflected
not only the pain at the gas
pump but a cutback in spending
on new cars after two big sales
months due to attractive incen-
tives from automakers.
The impact of $3-per-gallon
gasoline is taking a toll on con-
sumer confidence. The
University of Michigan report-
ed Friday that its confidence
survey for September fell to
76.9, the lowest level in 12
years. The August and
September declines are the
biggest back-to-back drops on
record.
"High gas prices had a devas-
tating impact on consumers'
budgets and caused consumers


Associated Press
MIAMI - Authorities arrested 99 people from
29 countries in a weeklong operation targeting
alien fugitives, U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement officials said Friday.
Many of those arrested in Operation Clean
Sweep had criminal convictions for violent
crimes, officials said. Some had allegedly evaded
capture for years.
. The operation was--conducted by agents in
- Miami, Tamp, Jacksonville and Orlando.


to expect a worsening financial
situation during the year
ahead," said Richard Curtin,
director of the Michigan survey.
Analysts said they still
expect the economy to rebound
from the hurricane and energy-
related blows but cautioned that
statistics over -the next two
months would look grim.
"We are starting to get early
estimates of the impacts of
Katrina and they are ugly," said
Joel Naroff, chief economist at


N a r o f f
Economic
Advisors.
On Wall
Street, investors
were encour-
aged to see
crude oil prices
ease slightly
with a price of a
barrel of light
crude dropping
55 cents to
$66.24 in New


York trading. The Dow Jones.
industrial average gained 15.92
points Friday to close at
10,568.70.
The Commerce report on
incomes and spending estimat-
ed that Katrina resulted in $100
billion in property loses not
covered by insurance. The
report estimated that $70 billion
in insurance payments would be
made.
Withoutthe impact from the
.uninsured losses, the govern-
ment estimated incomes would
have risen by 0.2 percent in
August. In the government's
accounting method, both the


losses and the payments were
recorded on the day the hurri-
cane hit.
Because Katrina came ashore
on Aug. 29, the August income
report did not reflect job losses
from the storm. That negative
hit to incomes will appear in the
September report and also will
be evident in the September
unemployment report, sched-
uled to be released next Friday.
The consensus view is that
jobs will fall by 172,000 in


I


September as the layoffs from
the hurricanes overwhelm job
gains in the rest of the country.
The unemployment rate, which
had fallen to a four-year low of
4.9 percent in August, is expect-
ed to climb to 5.2 percent.
The sharp drop in spending
even before the storms and the
big drop in consumer confi-
dence raised concerns about
consumers' staying power.
Consumer spending accounts
for two-thirds of all economic
activity.
"Consumers are reeling from
the high energy bills and that
has to be watched very careful-


"Operation Clean Sweep is part of our contin-
ued mission to keep our communities safe by
removing dangerous criminal aliens from our
streets," said Michael Rozos, ICE field office
director for detention and removal in Florida.
In Florida so far this fiscal year, 1,075 fugitive
aliens have been arrested, with the help of state

ly," said Mark Zandi, chief
economist at Economy.com.
"Another month of falling con-
, summer confidence would be dis-
turbing."
Economists are worried that
the surge in energy prices could
rattle consumers so much that
the economy will be pushed
into a full-blown recession.
However, they still rate that
outcome as a low probability,
saying the more likely impact
from the hurricanes and soaring
energy will be a
reduction of a full
percentage point
in growth in the
current July-
September quar-
ter, pushing


IN growth down to
around 3 percent,
and a further
slowdown in the
fourth quarter
with growth com-
ing in at 2.8 per-
cent. They expect stronger
growth next year from hurri-
cane rebuilding.
The Congressional Budget
Office -said on Thursday it is
more optimistic that the hurri-
canes' impacts will be limited,
predicting that much of the
slowdown will be contained to
the July-September quarter.
Income after adjusting' for
taxes fell by 0.1 percent in


August while Americans' per-
sonal savings rate remained in
negative territory for the third
straight month at minus 0.7 per-
cent, a slight improvement from
the all-time low for savings of
minus 1.1 percent in July.


When the savings rate is in
negative territory, it means that
Americans are. not only spend-
ing all of their after-tax income
but they are dipping into sav-
ings accumulated in earlier
months to finance spending.

Prison employee allegedly buys a


drugs to sneak into DeSoto prison 1 D1 I


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A man charged
with buying cannabis in a park-
ing lot Tuesday allegedly
planned to sneak it into the
DeSoto Correctional
Institution.
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies arranged to sell
cannabis to prison employee
Gregory Charles McMillan. 33.
of Arcadia, on Sept. 27.
McMillan works in the edu-
cation department of the prison,
according to arrest reports.
Deputies met him shortly
before noon that day on the
south end of the Circle K gaso-
line station parking lot, at the
U.S. 27 and U.S. 98 intersec-
tion.
According to arrest reports,

At 11:21 a.m., deputies
received a call that McMillan
was on his way, reports said.
They had an undercover vehicle
equipped with video and sound
equipment. Later, McMillan's
gold 2003 Dodge Intrepid
arrived and he got out.
He then walked over to the
undercover vehicle and got in
the front passenger's seat.
He allegedly asked the

told it was under the seat.

When asked how he would

McMillan allegedly said he

he would hide it in his under-

guards don't search him.
McMillan made it as far as

LARRY. LEVEY/News-Sun
David George, health and fitness coordinator for Florida Hospital Heartland Division, now heads up the
newly reorganized Man-to-Man Highlands County Prostate Cancer Education and Support Group.


Support group back in action


By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - It wasn't
planned, but the timing was just
right.
The first meeting of the
newly reorganized "Man-to-
Man Highlands County
Prostate Cancer Education and
Support Group," held Sep. 20,
took place in the same month as
Prostate Cancer Awareness
Month.
On hold since the first of the
year, the group is once again
off-and-running, thanks to
David George, Health and
Fitness Coordinator for Florida
Hospital, Heartland Division.
George said he became inter-
ested in heading up the group
after managing Florida
Hospital's Relay for Life team
last year and becoming a board
member of the Highlands
County unit' of the Florida
Division of the American
Cancer Society. "I've read
about Man-to-Man groups and
saw a need for it here in the
county. And I spoke with
Arlene Thatcher, the wife of the
former chairman.. She told, me
theme- was a need.for.sameone,to
facilitate the group "'
The group is now co-spon-


scored by the American Cancer
Society and Florida Hospital.
The hospital provides meeting
space and refreshments, with
meetings set for the third
Tuesday of each month, from
2:00-4:00 in Conference Room
3. Next meeting is Oct. 18.
George said 13 men and
three wives attended the Sep.
20 meeting, adding that in spite
of the "Man-to-Man" name,
spouses and caregivers are
encouraged to attend.
One man who attended the
meeting, George said, had just
been diagnosed and was con-
cerned, wondering, "Am I
going to live through this?"
Along with .helping: several.,


cussed inviting speakers to talk
at future meetings about such
topics as diagnosis, latest
changes in treatment, diet and
nutrition, exercise, recurrence
of prostate cancer, incontinence
and sexual problems.
George said he intends to dis-
tribute flyers about the group
and the meetings to all local
'urologists and primary care
physicians.
Bob Thatcher, chairman of
the "group when it voted last
December to postpone the
meetings, said, "It's wonderful
to start the group going again. I
just hope they find some people
to help keep it going."

Last week Charles Elam and
Jeff Platt, two volunteers from
the church, put the roof on the
new room.
Work is going slowly
because everyone is having 'to
work in their free time, and
some days Elam is the only one
to show up.


Cool is recommending the
county impose parking limits,
and that would solve the crowd-
ing problem, as well.
Additional law enforcement
has already started. Cool
believes this should help deter
any illegal behavior.
Facilities
Beside the Port-A-Johns, the
county could install men's and
women's changing areas - a

fence. County staff could clean

collect fees from the iron ranger
and issue citations, as needed.
Cool does not see the need
for such a long-range plan at
this time, especially if the short-
term solutions work.
Boats
Some boaters have asked for
access back to the lake. While
Cool is working on that issue,
he does not have any solutions
at this time. Pontius had no rec-
ommendations either.

TOFFIN IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Focus on what

they can do
If eyeglasses had never been
invented, and we had to cope
with the eyesight we got, I
would be disabled.
That's because I'm very
nearsighted.
Without my glasses there
are many jobs I wouldn't be
able to do. I couldn't write this
column, that's for sure; and I
couldn't become a teacher,
security guard, mechanic, res-
piratory therapist, soldier or
salesman.
In fact, when 1 sat down and
thought about all of the things
I wouldn't be able to do -
drive a car, play baseball, go
to the movies, see a friend
from across the street, -1I
found it very unsettling.
It's one thing to joke about
how I wouldn't have survived
long as a prehistoric caveman.
(I'm guessing I would have
mistaken a bear for my father
on my first hunting trip and
been swallowed up whole as a
result).
It's another to think about it
seriously, like what would I do
if I lost my glasses during a
;hurricane when the roof had
been ripped off. That scenario
is chilling.
I am grateful to science, It is
the one reason I can lead a
normal life.
, The reason I am going on
like this, is that I spent a
morning at Ridge Area Arc
this week.working with other

Finding a perfect job match


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK - This year marks the
12th anniversary of the Americans with
Disabilities Act, which has provided
opportunities for people with disabili-
ties.
October has been proclaimed National
Disability Employment Awareness
Month by President George W. Bush.
The goal is to raise the awareness of
employers, "to ensure the full inclusion
of our nation's persons with disabilities
in the 21st century work force."
Cam Barnard, art director and
employment services manager for Ridge
Area Arc, hopes business and govern-
ment leaders are paying attention.
Workers with disabilities can make
excellent workers she said, it is just a
matter of matching the individual to the
job.
Studies have shown that workers with
disabilities have fewer accidents and
better attendance records than the popu-
lation as a whole.
The staff at Ridge Area Arc has a sup-
port system in place to help in the hiring
process.
The staff provides assistance with job
,development and placement, as well as
follow up support. They work with the
clients in filling out applications, inter-
views, proper job etiquette and other job
training skills that help prepare them for
work.
According to the Able Trust, a foun-
dation created by the Florida Legislature
in 1990 to ensure fair employment
opportunities for people with disabili-
ties, almost one out of every five
Americans has a disability. This is near-
ly 50 million people.
Only 29 percent of work-age people
with disabilities are employed full or
part time, compared to 79 percent of
those without disabilities.
Barnard thinks it's a senseless waste
of taleti, and pro% ide, some guidelines
to niake the hiring process easier.

James Clawson of Avon Park works at Ridge Area Arc helping to assemble irrigation
piping. His job is to insert the tip of a water outlet into the irrigation tube. He uses a
block of wood with holes drilled the size of the tip. They hold the tip steady, as he fits
the irrigation hose over it.


Employers are urged to break down a
job into its essential parts. Ask these
questions:
* What methods, techniques and
tools are used?
* When and how often is the task per-,
formed?
* What kind of skills or knowledge
are necessary?
* What happens if the task isn't com-
pleted on time?
- BW identifying the basic-components,
the ideal candidate for the job can be


found.
When interviewing people with dis-
abilities-it is important to look beyond
the disability, Barnard said, focus on
what the candidate can do instead.
Be certain your company's applica-
tion and interviewing procedures com-
ply with the law, which prohibits disabil-
ity related questions or medical exams
before a real job offer is made. Be will-
ing to make appropriate and reasonable
accommodations. All- questions should
be job related.


Maria Rivera, of Avon Park, (left) and
Eva Monk, of Sebring, put women's
blouses on hangers at the Ridge Area Arc
Resale Store in Avon Park. When they
place the clothing on the sale floor racks,
they make sure all the hangers point in
the same direction. That's not being
fussy. It makes it easier to move armloads
of clothes easily. And it is more conven-
ient for the shopper.

Businesses which are considering hir-
ing people with disabilities are encour-
aged to contact Ridge Area Arc's support
team.
Ridge Area Arc is hosting a Disability
Mentoring Day on Oct. 19. This is a one-
day job shadowing program to allow
people with disabilities to learn more
about what a typical workday is like in
various businesses throughout the coun-
ty. Any business can participate in the
job shadowing.
A kick-off breakfast at the Jacaranda
Hotel in Avon Park. will start the. day.

DO
Continued from 13A
thrift store.
It made me think about
things I normally keep out of
my mind, like being vulnerable
in a dangerous world. We're all
just a slip and fall away from
disaster. Maybe that's why we
so often try to keep the dis-
abled apart. They're just too
painful a reminder.
The point that was drilled
into me, however - and by
every member of the Ridge
Area Arc staff - is that we
need to stop thinking about
what people can't do, and
focus on what they can,
because everyone can do
something.
For example, some of the
people working at the thrift
store in downtown Avon Park
have trouble remembering
facts, and some of them don't
think very quickly, but each of
the people I worked with that
morning knew what they had
to do, where they had to do it
and how. Even better, they
were proud of the work that
they did.
Every member of the crew
was ready and waiting at 8
a.m. to begin work. Before the
thrift store opened Leslie
Hollandy was vacuuming the
carpet. Mike Babich was mop-
ping the floor. Eva Monk,
Carol Snyder, Rose Tilley and
Amelia Titus were dusting, or
picking up stray clothing
items, straightening hangers,
and checking the racks.
At 9 a.m. the main work of
the day begins.
Operating a thrift store is a
complicated business. Clothes
have to be sorted both by type
and by size. Wrinkled clothes
that need ironing have to be set
aside, while everything else
has to be tagged and then
priced. Clothes are then put on
hangers or folded, and taken
out onto the.floor.
The sorting and pricing is


mainly done by Fanny Hoppes,
the store's manager, or one of
her assistants. Everything else
is done by the crew.
Monk, Snyder, Tilley and
Titus spend most of their day
at their stations. On one side
they have a large stack of
clothing, which they process
throughout the day.
They staple a tag onto every
item, and decide if something
needs ironing. Then they fold
or hang every item, and get it
all out on the floor. Monk and
Titus do what ironing has to be
done.
The entire crew was friendly
and supportive, showing me
where things were, or how
something was to be done.
I was grateful for their help,
as I worked helping to straight-
en the racks, because it turned
out the hangers were a chal-
lenge.
They come in a variety of
types, most of them plastic
with moveable clips. I found a
pair of pants that had fallen on
the floor. Taking the hanger, I
tried to open the clip by push-
ing up on a metal tab. On
another hanger when I pushed
up on the metal tab - which I
had to do with some force - it
came loose in my hand and the
plastic clip fell apart. Worse, I
couldn't put it back together.
What an embarrassment, not
on the job 10 minutes, and I'd
already broken something.
Fortunately, Tilley and Titus
were kind enough to show me
my mistake, and where the
trash can was.
Which only goes to prove
that I was the one disabled that
morning, even though I was
seeing 20/20.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley comes to the fore, when
he learns how to be a golf pro.

has a job they would to spot-
light in the Tuffin' It With

JOB
Continued from 13A
People will then be split up in
various groups to travel to area
businesses.
Ridge Area Arc was founded
50 years ago by Mary Ellen
Ward and the late Franklyn
Ward of Avon Park. Their son.
Rob, lives in a group home in
Avon Park managed by Ridge
Area Arc and he used to work at
Publix supermarket in Avon
Park. He now helps at the
agency's resale store.
Clients participating at Ridge
Area Arc have a variety of pro-
grams to help them gain
employment. There is a shel-
tered workcenter where the
agency manufactures irrigation


Carol Snyder is working on housekeeping chores, done before the
store opens for business. She is dusting the display case where she
will arrange a new display of brass ware.

MidFlorida Federal Credit
Union began more than 50
years ago as a credit union for
teachers and while it is a com-
munity-based credit union
today, MidFlorida continues to
recognize its roots in the educa-
tion system with a scholarship
program named, in part, for one
of its founding members.
The MidFlorida Federal
Credit Union/Rebecca Keith
Scholarship Program began just
a few short years ago. "Rebecca
Keith was devoted to starting
the credit, union, even accepting
deposits at her home and keep-
ing them in an old shoe box
before there were any branch
offices," stated Chester Brojek,
chairman of MidFlorida's board
of directors. Brojek added,
"With the recent passing of
Mrs. Keith, the board decided
to rename the scholarship in her
honor. She was quoted in a
video of credit union's history
that MidFlorida had been one
of her proudest accomplish-
ments. It just seemed fitting to
remember her in this way."
The MidFlorida Federal
Credit Union/Rebecca Keith
Scholarship is awarded to one
student in each high school in
Highlands and Polk counties
and provides recipients $1,000

Davis and Harstine pair up to open new golf course


* See related story on page 1E.
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - Rodney
Davis and Jeff Harstine pair up
on the golf course for more than
just a game.
Rodney Davis has been in the
golf course business since 1965.
Originally it was with his fami-
ly's golf course in West
Lafayette, Ohio called River
Greens (North.) After he moved
to Florida in 1969, Davis
bought the existing nine-hole
Avon Park course, and named it
River Greens (South.) In 1974,
Davis added the second nine
and it's now a semi-private
course that his wife, Lisa, man-
ages.
In 1976, Davis formed a part-
nership (Highland Golf) with
Jeff Harstine to build golf
courses. "Jeff and I were both
from West Lafayette, Ohio, and
graduated from high school
together. We have a great rela-
tionship. You couldn't ask for a
better person," Rodney Davis
said.
After Jeff Harstine graduated
from Mt. Union College in,
business and accounting in
1973, he lived in Colorado.
"I came to Florida in 1976
for a wedding and stayed. Then
the two of us went into business
together building golf courses.
We started out doing remodel-
ing and small jobs. We pro-
gressed and got bigger jobs.
We've done hundreds of new
and renovated courses-even one
for the King of Bahrain. We've
used different architects like
Ron Garl of Lakeland, and we'd
done lots of Fazio and Palmer
courses," Harstine said.
"Even though we've built so
many courses for others, buying
this one and renovating it for
ourselves is exciting to me. I
want to give back Lake Placid a
golf course they can be proud
of. Lake Placid is really grow-
ing, is ready, and deserves this,"
Jeff Harstine said.
"I've always enjoyed the
construction part of the busi-
ness, but was sure tired of trav-
eling. I missed so much with
Smy two girls. Now my 14-year-
old son,. Clay, is interested in
golf and I want to teach him the
business. My older daughters,
Tina and Amber, play golf, but
they want nothing to do, with
the business, which probably
has to do with feelings about
how much it took me away
from them," Rodney Davis
said.
Now with the Placid Lakes
Course in operation, Jeff
Harstine will supervise the con-
struction company, and Rodney
Davis will be superintendent of
both River Greens and Placid
Lakes, which will give him
more time with his wife and
son.
"The people in Lake Placid
have been waiting a long time
for a quality golf course to
enjoy. They're going to like this
because we produce things
we're proud of," Lisa Davis
said. So far, $3 million has gone
into the new course.
Placid Lakes Country Club
and golf course was dilapidated
when the Davises and Harstines
bought it last June. It's been
completely rebuilt, with new,
state-of-the-art irrigation alone
costing half a million. They
added new wells with new
pumps and controls, which is
tied into the main system so if
there is low demand, the two
small wells can be used, but if
there is high demand, the big
pump kicks in, Jeff Harstine
said. The course has been
regrassed with celebration
Bermuda grass on tees, fair-
ways and in roughs. Tif eagle
ultra dwarf is on the greens (a
brand of grass that's been new
to the industry for about 10
years.)
This course was originally
built in the 1960s. And now the
contouring has been changed to
a more modem design. Rodney
Davis and Jeff Harstine length-
ened the course to 7,025 yards
from the blue tees, and 6,450
from the white. The ladies are


5,200, and the gold (seniors) are
5,900 yards. There's lots of
variety, with low areas playing
to high sand ridges.
The new design not only
includes digging out existing
lakes, but adding new lakes. All
of the waterways have been
dredged, which helped create
the 45 even larger sand traps. A
picturesque bridge was added
on the hole 5. The driving range
has been extended and there's


now a larger putting and chip-
ping green. They've reshaped
all of the holes, tees, fairways,
and greens. Trees were moved
to accommodate modem drives.
"Some of the course had
become obsolete for modem-
day golfers. Everything has
evolved since the 1960s. There
were even holes that used to be
under water at times. We had to
lower some of the drainage
pipes and raise the fairways so
that will no longer be a prob-
lem. We also modified the
drainage height to get the water
out faster in the rainy season,"
Jeff Harstine said.
The clubhouse has had a total
changeover. Dee Dee Harstine,
Jeff's wife, and decorator Marty
Hanna of Finishing Touches in
Lake Placid dressed it up, sim-
ply and elegantly, to give it all a
new look. The bar was moved
to the other end of the building,
and the office moved to the
northeast corner of the club-
house, with the pro shop now in
the adjacent building. Ceilings
were removed and made higher.
There's a new dance floor, all
new appliances, carpet and fur-
niture for the renovated porch.
Pl re's a ne, roof on both
th hop and clubhouse and

Dee Dee Harsune worked for
their construction company
(Highland Gold) for 18 years as
their secretary/bookkeeper.
Now Sthe -will run the office at
Placid Lakes.
I m so excited. It's been
such 'a, challenge Once people.
see the course, the clubhouse
and all the landscaping they
will be impressed. We made an
effort to always hire Lake
Placid .workers We're still
looking for an aruist to add a
mural on the back wall of the
pro, shop, and we also need
'.aiLresse., barienders, kitchen
help, maintenance and cleaning
staff. Richard DiStefano
designed and built our impres-
Iive new entry sign outdoors,"
Dee Dee Harstine said.
"You can be sure this grand
entrance is going to be really
nice. After ill. I'm not only a
neighbor, but also developing
luxury villas for $235,000 just
down the road. My daughter is a
real estate agent and my son
works with me. The property
values hive risen in Lake Placid
and now it's time to step it up a


notch. I'm really glad to see
what Davis and Harstine have
done. It's first class, and Lake
Placid property owners will
benefit from this," contractor
DiStefano said.
"We've invested a substantial
amount of money, but there are
lots of people moving to
Central Florida. And 10 years
from now all the land deals will
be gone," Dee Dee Harstine
said.
Presently, Chef Russell
Stewart, a Lake Placid resident,
serves a sandwich/salad lunch
menu, with a full bar available.
"We wanted to create an atmos-
phere where business people
will enjoy bringing clients.
We'll see how it goes and later
try one. or two evenings of din-
ing to see how that works," Lisa
Davis said.
The pro shop has been
enlarged with an office for
Professional Golf Association
Pro Jeff Moorman. He and his
wife, Brenda, previously owned
Golfers World in Sebring.
They'll run the pro shop, which
will carry a full line of clubs
and accessories. Moorman is
planning numerous events, such
as men's, ladies days, Pro-Ams
and scrambles. There will be
clinics for kids to keep them
active, and plans to involve the
women.
"This is a challenging course.
It's in great condition, and I
think it will be the best course
in Highlands County,"
Moorman said.
'I play a couple of times a
week, in the league and a
Sunday match. I have a 12
handicap, and it's frustrating. I
used to be real good, but don't
score as well now. But I enjoy
being outdoors and like the peo-
ple I deal with," Rodney Davis
said.
"Now Lake Placid golfers no
longer have to drive to Avon
Park or Sebring. That should
help because of gas prices. Area
golfers should dust off their
clubs and come on out," Jeff
Harstine said.
Placid Lake's restaurant, pro
shop; driving ringe. putting
range, and the golf course offi-
cially opens for play Oct. 1.
People can inquire about mem-
bership in the semi-private club
at 465-4333. Current pro shop
hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Call 465-1626 to set a tee time.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Dance in


the sky
The mockingbird's spe-
cialty is to imitate the songs
of other birds.
One morning I heard bird
songs and looked out
expecting to see a mocking
bird sitting in the branch of
a tree. Instead, I was treated
to a dance in the sky.
Two of these gray and
white American songbirds
had filled the sky with a
song and a dance. The white
in their wings stood out
against the backdrop of the
clear blue sky accompanied
by they're rhythmic move-
ments.
They had my attention
and I only wish their frolic
could have lasted for hours.
In those few moments they
had touched me with beauty.
When we come into rela-
tionship with God through
Jesus Christ, we realize that
our lives have meaning and
purpose. As we glorify and
enjoy our God, he invites us
to enter into his work in the
world - that others may
come to know him and be
part of God's family.
To each he gives a "spe-
cialty." Some are designed
to be teachers and communi-
cators. Others know that
their helping hands are set
apart for God's use. But, no
matter the gift, when we
find our unique fit, we're
fulfilled in that service.
However, we may also be
asked to stretch a bit.
When my husband, Ken,
and I began singing together,
.that became our specialty as
a married couple. Then the
Lord added writing to me
and speaking quickly fol-
lowed.
Writing was like singing -
a natural outgrowth "spe-
cialty" that God would work
through in my life. Speaking
extended me beyond what I
would have thought my
sphere of specialization.
However, it didn't end
there as Ken also was
stretched when our singing
ministry developed to
include speaking and dia-
loguing. And God orches-
trated more complex "com-
positions" as we continually
yielded to the Holy Spirit's
direction as a couple.
Some may wonder if
they've been closed to
God's pursuit so long that
they have no specialty that
he can use in the dance of
life. But, listen to what
Jeremiah says of Israel's
restoration.
"'I have loved you with an
everlasting love; I have
drawn you with lovihg-kind-
riess. I will build you up
again and you will be
rebuilt, O Virgin Israel.
Again you will take up your
tambourines and go out to
dance with the joyful."
(Jeremiah 31: 3b- 4, NIV)
Mimicking songs of other
birds is the mockingbird's
specialty. Yet, these two
were quite the dancers as
well. When the Lord choreo-
graphs our talents and lives,
a "song and dance" will
result. It will touch souls
and broaden our capacity to
serve beyond what we may
have narrowly thought was
our only specialty.
We can draw the attention
of others skyward to our


heavenly Father when we,
too, become "sky dancers"
willing to fill this world
with his beauty. Selah.

waiting in the


wings for Gabriel Project


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - At each Mass at St.
Catherine's Roman Catholic Church,
starting Oct. 2, an "angel" will be speak-
ing about a new project.
Besides signifying the beginning of
Respect Life Month, it's the day that the
Gabriel Project, will be launched and 15
"angels" will be commissioned. The
purpose of the project and its angels is to
mentor young women going through a
crisis pregnancy and at risk of having an
abortion. Each angel will be commis-
sioned by the Celebrant and receive their
angel pin.
"The Gabriel Project is being spon-
sored by the Council of Catholic Women
in coordination with the Respect Life
Committee of St. Catherine's Parish,"
said Patricia Bajohr, the council's presi-
dent.
The children of the parish from the
Faith Formation Program will pass huge
plastic baby bottles to the parishioners to
collect loose change for the project.. '.
, Bajohr is excited that Marge Rafferty,
who chairs the community portion of the
Council for Catholic women, agreed to
chair the Gabriel Project. She brings


years of experience working in child
care, youth groups, teen pregnancy and
as Healthy Start Board Chair from 2000-
2004. When Bajohr presented the idea to
her, she immediately said she wanted to
be a part of that.
"It's an awesome responsibility to
train other women who are going to be
involved with ladies in crisis pregnan-
cies," Rafferty said.
These women are mentor-s ho come
alongside the expectant mother. The\ are
friends who listen, prja. .shjre and
advise. They have been gi\en the name
"angels" because Gabriel is the angel
who brought .the news to Mary that she
would have the' privilege of carrying
God's Son, Jesus.
Rafferty, her co-chair, Patty Lafiles -
who has had years of service with a
teenage pregnancy and crisis center -
and their angels want these girls to know
that regardless of how they became
pregnant, they have been chosen to carry
S.a baby .... - ....... . .. . . .
"The most important person on earth
is a mother," Rafferty said. "She devel-
ops a child, anotlier human being. We
want these young mothers-to-be to see
what an awesome responsibility and

privilege they have with God because of
this."

Angels in the making
Since May, approximately 15 ladies
have been meeting for training the first
Saturday of each month for two hours.
More recently, their workshop hours
have expanded to be ready for today.,
The workshops have covered:
" How does mentoring work?
* What is the role of an angel?
* What does she do and how?
* How to share one's own personal
experiences
* Learning to be a listener and hear-
ing beyond the words spoken
These angels aren't social workers or
any other type of professional. The
Gabriel Project will tap into the commu-
nity, of priests, doctors, other profession-
als and community agencies to handle
those things that go beyond the angels,
mentoring role; such as situations where
abuse may be an issue.
"They are. spiritual mentors who will
make the expectant mom aware that God
still loves her. They'll help her learn
what is available to'her in the communi-
ty and what a special gift she has in car-
rying this child," Rafferty said.
A girl in these circumstances often
feels like God doesn't care about her
anymore. She feels unworthy and her


self-esteem is down. The angel is there
to pray for her and tell her God loves her
- to help meet spiritual needs and uplift
her.
The same angel sticks with the mom
after the baby is born helping her set
goals and accomplish them. She's a sup-
port person until the young mother is
ready to stand on her own.
The angels have all signed their
Gabriel Angel agreement which states
that they will not promote abortion in
any way, shape or form to their clients.
"It is astounding to me the things I've
learned about abortion as I've been read-
ing and getting information. The facts
are astronomical. We know babies start
feeling pain when a mother is only four
weeks pregnant," Rafferty said, "and
there are stacks of facts to prove it."
The angels will help each girl come to
terms with her options; one of which
would be adoption. Should she choose
adoption, the angel would put her in
touch with the right people.
Creative mentoring
Through the help of someone in
Naples, who has been running this pro-
gram for six years, Rafferty learned hints
that will help her angels to apply the
things they have learned. For example,
by using acronyms, the angels are
reminded how to go about their first

EDITOR'S NOTE: Fitness. Ever try
it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results - loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Secret Service work took Mike to
exotic places, but globe-trotting took its
toll. He longed to sleep in his own bed.
While traveling five to six weeks at a
time, things changed at home. Perhaps
the furniture was moved around or a
dependable routine bit the dust. On some
trips, Mike called home frequently. But,
excursions to remote places meant
Emily might not hear from him for
weeks.
During those interludes, Emily often
made decisions without consulting
Mike. Some had conspicuous impact.
Like the time they saw the advertisement


for free puppies to
good homes.
The address listed in
the ad led them to an
unkempt property.
Uncomfortably, they
stood in the doorway
trying to decide what
to do. Just then a tiny
black puppy ran into
the room.
"Pleeeaaassseee,"


graphic by: FRED KOEHL


the girls begged. "Can't we take her
home?" '
Emily couldn't resist their pleas and
almost felt compelled to rescue the little
thing. So, Curly - named for the curl at
the end of her tail - had a new home.
Some weeks later, when Mike tip-toed
into the house at 1 a.m. he was met with
the "Grrrr" of a fierce little dog that
wouldn't let him into bed.
"Oh, I got a dog while you were
gone," Emily said, as she rolled over to
greet her husband.
Mike resented being treated like an
intruder in his own home and he and
Curly never hit it off. He questioned
Emily's decision. more than once.
However, about a year later, when Emily
and the girls were alone again, Curly
kept up an insistent whining and growl-
ing.
"Shut-up!" Emily told her, annoyed.


Around dusk, the
neighbor whose
kitchen window faced
the side of Emily's
house called.
"Someone is fool-
ing around with the
door to your basement.
Don't open your door.
I'm calling the
police."


LEFVNEWSSUN Emily calmly
descended the stairs to the basement and
locked the door that would give them
access to the upstairs. She could hear the
pulling and jiggling of the outside door.
By now the dog was going crazy - bark-
ing ferociously and jumping around.
Still the burglar kept at it.
Emily ascended the stairs of her split-
level home. Courageously, she took a
risk and let Curly out the front door. The
dog took off and so did the burglar with
Curly at his heels. The police followed
the trail, but never found the would-be
intruder.
When Mike returned and imagined
what could have happened, he taught
Emily to use a gun. Then he revised his
opinion of this feisty dog who had kept
the real intruder out. Mike shook his
head in wonderment at how God kept his
wife from fear and used a loyal little dog
to protect his family.


Warm-up time
When a spouse can't be there him-
self and only finds out about potential
harm once he gets home, it's unnerv-
ing. Understand his need to be the
protector and give him a little space
to recover.

Sit-up and take notice
When your wife has been exposed
to danger, take the necessary precau-
tions. But remember to praise her for
her courage and faith. If your work is
dangerous, she lives with uncertainty
and displays courage everyday.

Curl-up together
You are God's provision for each
other. But God's arm isn't shortened
when you're apart. Take time to thank
him for his care while you travel and
for your family at home. Such times
will draw you closer to God and each
other.

Soul fitness
"Be strong and courageous. Do not
be terrified; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with
you wherever you go." (Joshua 1: 9,
JIV)

DIVERSIONS



Single parenting is challenge of a lifetime


Question:
What encouragement can
you offer to those of us who are
single parents? Each day seems
more difficult than the one
before it. Can you help plead
our case to those who don't
understand what we're facing?.
Dr. Dobson:
In my view, single parents
have the toughest job in the uni-
verse! Hercules himself would
tremble at the range of respon-
sibilities people like you must
handle every day. It's difficult
enough for two parents with a
solid marriage and stable
finances to satisfy the demands
of parenting. For a single moth-
er or father to do that task
excellently over a period of
years is evidence of heroism.
The greatest problem faced
by single parents,, especially
young mothers like yourself, is
the overwhelming amount of
work to be done. Earning a liv-
ing, fixing meals, caring for
kids, helping with homework,
cleaning house, paying bills,
repairing the car, handling
insurance, doing the banking,
the income tax, etc., can require
12 hours a day or more. She
must continue that schedule
seven days a week, all year
long. Some have no support
from family or anyone else. It's
enough to exhaust the strongest
and healthiest woman. And
where does she, find the time
and energy to meet her social


and emotional needs
- and how does she
develop the friend- ."
ships on, which that
part of her life
depends? This job is
no easier for most B
fathers, who may
find themselves try-
ing to comb their
daughter's hair and FO
explain menstruation 0N
to their preteen girls. ON
There is only one FAN
answer to the pres-
sures single parents Dr.,J
face. It is for the rest Do
of us to give them a -
helping hand. They
need highly practical assis-
tance, including the friendship
of two-parent families who will
take their children on occasion
to free up some time. Single
moms need the help of young
men who will play catch with
their boys and take them to the
school soccer game. They need
men who will fix the brakes on
the Chevy and patch the leaky
roof. They need an extended
family of believers to care for
them, lift them up and remind
them of their priorities. Perhaps
most important, single parents
need to know that someone
cares about them and is willing
to help share their burden.
Thankfully, churches today
are becoming more sensitive to
the. needs of single parents.
More congregations are offer-

ing programs and
ministries geared to
the unique concerns
of those with special
needs. I'd advise
every single parent to
-. find such a church or
fellowship group and
make himself or her-
self at home there.
US Fellowship and sup-
port can be the key to
ME survival.

tion at P.O. Box 444, Colorado

Question:
We have always laughed a lot
in our family, sometimes at
each other. Is that good or bad?
Dr. Dobson:
It is healthy to be able to
laugh together in a family. We
ought to be able to tease and
joke with each other without
having to worry about getting
an angry overreaction in
response. But when the laughter
is always at the expense of the
most vulnerable member of the
family, it can be destructive.
Even innocent humor is


painful when it's the same child
who is the object of ridicule.
Unfortunately, that's the way it
often happens. When one
youngster has an embarrassing
characteristic, such as bed-wet-
ting, thumb-sucking or stutter-
ing, the other members of the
family should be encouraged to
tread very softly on the exposed
nerves thereabouts. And a child
should never be ridiculed for
his or her size, whether he's a
small boy or a large girl.
This is the guiding principle:
It's wise not to tease a child
about the features that he or she
is also defending outside the
home. If that youngster is.hear-
ing about some obvious flaw all
day long, he or she certainly
doesn't need more flak from the
family. And when that child
asks for a joke to end, the -
request should be honored.
Being the butt of everyone's
ridicule is a formula for lifelong
resentment, and there's just
nothing funny about that hap-
pening.

Bank account brouhaha shows relationship out of balance


Dear Abby:
I recently moved in with my
fiance, "Eric." We plan on
being married this fall. The mail
arrived a little while ago, and
his checking account is still in
his ex-wife's name. Eric had
promised he would open a new
account and close this one when
we first got together.
Now he contends that since
she is remarried with another
name, that there is no such per-
son - she no longer exists.
Wouldn't his ex-wife still be-a
- co-owner-df the'account since it
is a joint account? Obviously,
you have to have a Social
Security number to open an
account, and that doesn't
change after marriage.
This has become a giant bone
of contention, and it hurts every
time I pick up "their mail." Eric
says I am being "stupid" and I
"don't understand." I say, open
up anew account and start over


with me. He becomes
angry every time I
mention it and says it
makes him more
determined to keep
the account.
Frankly, Eric is
starting to make me
feel like I'm crazy for
caring. Am I being
unreasonable? Or is DEAI
the writing on the -
wall telling me he Jeanne
still enjoys seeing
their names together?
Hurt in Bloomington, Ind.
Dear Hurt:
The checking account is the
least of your worries. What the
writing on the wall says to me is
that your fiance's promises are
all smoke and no substance, and
your feelings are not important
to him. That's a pretty strong
message. Please pay attention.
It's a taste of what your life will
be like if you marry him.

Dear Abby:
I was married to
"Richard," the father
of my child, 12 years
ago. I was pregnant
and having severe
mood swings when I
left him, and eventu-
ally we divorced. We
had no further con-
tact until a couple of
months ago.
Our son told him
some things .about the
way we now live, and


the Way my current husband has
treated us. Richard was not
pleased, to say the least. He
offered his second home in
.another state to us, because he
rarely uses it. He also gave me
the impression that he still has
feelings for me.
Our son, like any child,
wants his parents to be back
.together. I have explained to
him that neither his father nor I


is even considering it at this
point. Would it give him false
hope if we were to move into
his father's home?
Needs To Go
Dear Needs To Go:
If the circumstances in which
you and your son are now living
are so unpleasant that his birth
father is offering shelter and
you "need to go" - then go.
Your son will cope better with
his disappointment that his par-
ents don't remarry than he will
u'with living with an abusive
stepparent. My.advice to you is
to move forward, but take it one
step at a time and don't second-
guess yourself.

Since many jobs now require
knowledge of and skills in
using a computer, your
Heartland libraries are offering
what no one else does - free
classes. Take them yourself, or
tell a friend ... you're never too
old to learn new skills. A num-
ber of you have taken the two
free computer courses offered
at every Heartland Copperative
library; the two-hour Basic
Computers, and the Advanced
Computers course. Some of you
have expressed a desire to learn
more (for free, of course), so,
starting in October, our comput-
er instructor, Gabrielle Turner,
will teach a Microsoft Word
computer class once a month.
Sign up for this hands-on class
to learn more about screen lay-
out, office assistant, saving doc-
uments, formatting, and using
some of your already acquired
skills, such as copying and past-
ing. You can call any library in
the Cooperative: Avon Park,

are Americans largely unaware
of this monumental work? Due
to the North American distribu-

Amoeba encounters likely


I have often come across parents
who are scared to let their kids swim in
lakes because they have heard about
invisible "bugs" that can get into the
body and cause damage to the brain.
Well, there is such a "bug" however
the chances of coming in contact with
it are very unlikely.
This "bug" I've referred to is an
amoeba called Naegleria fowleri.
Amoebas are simple, one-cell organ- NEWS
isms that you might remember learning T
about in biology. Naegleria fowleri is
found in warm bodies of fresh water, WATEI
such as lakes, rivers and hot springs,
warm water discharge from industrial Jennife
plants and under-chlorinated swim-
ming pools.
The amoeba lives in the bottom sediments
where it feeds on detritus (decomposing plant
matter). When water temperatures are below 85
degrees Fahrenheit, the amoeba exists in a cyst
form that is not capable of causing infection.
When the water temperature exceeds 85 degrees,
the organism emerges from the cyst into a free-
living amoeba. Infections can occur when bottom
sediments are stirred up, and swimmers put their
heads under water near the bottom, or jump into
stirred up waters (causing water to be forced up
the nose or ears).
In rare instances exposure to this amoeba can
cause Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis, a
dangerous disease. The amoeba enters the body
through the nose and travels to the brain where it
can cause swelling of the brain or linings of the
brain. Initial signs and symptoms of PAM include
headache, fever, nausea, vomiting and stiff neck.
More destruction of brain tissue leads to confu-
sion, lack of attention to people and surround-
ings, loss of balance and body control, seizures
and hallucinations. The disease progresses rapid-

ly and infection usually results in death
within three to seven days.
Fortunately, this disease is very rare.
There is less than 200 cases of PAM
reported in the world literature and
fewer than 20 have been documented
in Florida. Only two occurred in the
1990s. Most cases reported involved
children and young adults. There is a
greater chance of getting into a serious
car accident on your way to a river or
lake than actually coming in contact
with the amoeba Naegleria fowleri
while swimming.
Nevertheless, there are ways to
reduce the chances of coming in con-
tact with the amoeba while swimming.
The use of masks and nose plugs while


swimming underwater is one because the amoeba
enters through the nose. Try to keep your face
away from the bottom of the lake, especially in
shallow warm water areas as that is where the
amoeba is most likely living. Swimming in deep,
open areas of the lake, or water skiing pose
almost no risk for this type of infection.
The Center for Disease Control has further rec-
ommendations for preventing infection. Avoid
swimming in warm, stagnant freshwater such as
ponds or warm water discharge pools, or unchlo-
rinated swimming pools and do not swim in areas
posted as "no swimming."
Next week I'll discuss another problem you
could encounter while swimming in lakes and
rivers called "swimmers itch."

Kieslowski and his longtime
writing partner, Krzysztof
Piesiewicz, originally con-
ceived "The Decalogue" as 10
one-hour television shows each
to be directed by promising
Polish directors. When they
completed the writing part of
the project, their pride in the
finished product was such as to
keep the direction in
Kieslowski's hands.
"The experience of watching
'The Decalogue' is so com-
pelling and powerful that film
critic Kenneth Turan (Los
Angeles Times) wrote that to
see 'The Decalogue' was 'noth-
ing: less than a privilege.' "
(Liner Notes)
Since Kieslowski's abiding
concern in his films is the inte-
rior reactions in his characters
to exterior stimuli, each com-
mandment as filmed is more
about the effect on people then
and the commandment itself. As
an example in the first com-
mandment, "I am the Lord thy
God. Thou shalt have not other
God but me", the subject of the
film is a boy's and a father's
shared belief in science to the
exclusion of all else, with disas-


trous results.
Two commandments will be
shown each Saturday. Since
they were made for television
the running time of each is
about one hour. Thus, two hours
for each screening. The films
were produced in approximate-
ly 1990. They are in Polish with
English subtitles.
The following is from
h ttp : //mo vie -
reviews.net/movies/d/deca-
logue.html:
* Oct. 8: "Decalogue III" -
Remember the Sabbath day, to
keep it Holy. "A married man
spends Christmas Eve driving
around with his ex-lover trying
to help her make things right in
her life."
Decalogue IV - Honor Thy
Mother and Father - "Arika dis-
covers her father is not her bio-
logical father, How will this
change their relationship?"
* Oct. 15: "Decalogue V" -
Thou shalt not kill - "A much
discussed and controversial
film of Kieslowski's in which
the death penalty goes on trial."
Decalogue VI - Thou shalt
not commit adultery - "A
young man becomes obsessed


(sic) with a woman he has been
spying on. The consequences
are tragic."
* Oct. 22: "Decalogue VII"
- Thou shalt not steal - "Little
Ania is being brought up by her
Grandmother, but doesn't (sic)
know that her real mother is
actually her sister. Can a moth-
er kidnap, her own daughter?"
"Decalogue VIII" - Thou
shalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor - "A
Jewish war survivor from
America travels to Poland to
talk to the person who refused
her a hiding place."
* Oct. 29: "Decalogue IX" -
Thou shalt not covet thy neigh-
bor's wife - Roman loves his
young wife dearly and she loves
him, but he is impotent and
encourages her to have an
affair. Then is devastated and
obsessive when he finds out she
went through with it."
Decalogue X - "Thou shalt
not covet thy neighbor's goods
- "This one adds a little comic
relief to the set. Two brothers
have inherited their father's
very valuable stamp collection
and go to great lengths to pro-
tect it."

Papier tole featured at hospital


SEBRING - The featured
art exhibit at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center for
October is paper tole.
This form of art also is called
paper sculpture, which is made
up of many small paper pieces
cut out from paper tole prints.
Layering and gluing paper
pieces gives the artwork a
three-dimensional look. The
work is tedious and takes skill,
time and patience. Papier tole
originated in France hundreds
of years ago and. is gaining


great popularity in both the
United States and Canada.
The pictures on display were
all made by students and former
students of Sophie Mandzuk,
an excellent paper tole artist
herself. These works of art are
on display in the main prome-
nade area of the hospital locat-
ed on Sun 'N Lakes Blvd.
The hospital invites everyone
to come in and view this unusu-
al artwork on display. Most of
these works are for sale at great
prices.

Aquarius: Make peace





with those who irk you


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- You can be unusually per-
suasive, Aries. Your biggest
opponents are those who ques-
tion your timing. Act as if you
already know the answer and
your instincts will prove right.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- You find deeper meaning in
the most casual remarks lately,
Taurus. Introspection causes
you to do some self analysis.
Believe in your potential and
you can do almost anything.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- You're caught off balance by
a surprising question, Gemini.
Yet, you don't miss a beat.
Cosmic forces are pushing love
closer in your direction. Enjoy
the rush while it lasts.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- A confrontation ends early
when the weaker party gives in
to your wishes, Cancer. The
crab got lucky this time so
make the most of it. Confusion
arises midweek. Resolve it with
patience.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
When you see the shortcut this
week, Leo, take it. There would


be no entrepreneurs,
pioneers or inventors
if everyone waited

for permission to Ser
push on. Danger is
on the horizon.
Virgo (Aug. 23 -
Sept. 23) - It takes only one
kind word from a friend to
remind you how wonderful you
are, Virgo. There are many will-
ing partners who are waiting for
you to jump into the mix.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)
- Expect a sudden reversal in
your life, Libra. Everything is
still going your way, but it
changes somehow. As long as
you can adapt quickly you'll be
fine.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- Being timid is not in your
make-up, Scorpio. This is your
week to shine and get noticed.
The scorpion's desires will not
be denied and pity those who,
stand in your way.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - Being timid is not in
your make-up, Scorpio. This is
your week to shine and get
noticed. The scorpion's desires

will not be denied
and pity those who
stand in your way.
Capricorn (Dec.
22 - Jan. 20) - Be
careful about getting
worn out this week,


Sagittarius. It may be time to
pass the torch to another able
person. You have to remember
you're as human as everyone
else and need a break now and
again. You've had enough of
being alone, Capricorn. You
like to be around people even if
they are quite different from
you. Wear your heart on your


sleeve this week and you're
sure to find a love connection.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- Avoid problems by making
peace with troublesome indi-
viduals early on, Aquarius. The
best compromise is a combina-
tion of everyone's best ideas -
then go with it.

Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- It's finally time for Pisces to
yell, "I told you so." But wait
until there is a larger audience
to experience it. Wednesday
will be your day of victory, so
enjoy it.

ANGELS
Continued from 1C
face-to-face meeting with an
expectant mother in crisis.
Using the word "pies," the
mentor has a pattern to follow
when initiating a conversation.
"P" equals physical and
reminds the mentor to ask the
girl how she is feeling. Does
she have housing, medical care,
baby items?
"I" equals intellectual and
reminds the angel to ask the
young woman what she knows
about parenting, -adoption and
what abortion-is.
"E" equates to the emotions
and prompts the angel to ask
about relationships with her
family, the father of her child
and how she feels about herself.
"S" stands for spiritual
whereby the angel asks about
her background. Does she have
a relationship with God? Does
she pray? Does she object to the
angel praying for her?
Another acronym using the
word 'Please" works in the
same way with the letters stand-
ing for pray, listen, examples,
affirm, suspend judgment and
extend to the community for
help.
"Our numbers may increase
as we have several angels who
are still up north," Rafferty
said. "But out of our present
group we have an artist, an ob-
gyn (obstetrics-gynecologist)
nurse, an author of two books,
three bi-lingual folks and a few
retirees who want to teach
younger women."
The diversity of the group
will create wonderful dynamics
from which all of the angels and
the expectant mothers will ben-
efit.
"We even have a student
from South Florida Community
College who gives the group
incredible insight. We call her
our baby angel," Rafferty said.
The Gabriel Project stresses
confidentiality. Although the
angels will meet on a monthly


Wilma Washburn, of Sebring, looks through her project handbook.


basis to share experiences and
the needs they are encounter-
ing, confidentiality will not be
broken.
Just a phone call
away
Implementation of the men-
toring process will begin with
the phone call from the mother-
to-be. An interview will be set
up within a couple of days..
Then the angel will speak with
her at least once a week by
phone or as often as necessary.
Angels'will be available to see
the girl as often as she wants to
and as the mentor's schedule
allows.
"There are lots of scenarios
that will be played out - from a
gal whose mindset is set on
having an abortion to one who
is carrying this secret that no
one knows about," Rafferty
said. "Each situation will be
handled with confidentiality
and individual care."
A project of passion
The Gabriel Project has
Rafferty's heart beating with
passion and she said, "The Holy
Spirit has been the basis for this
program since day one. He has
been there to guide myself, my
angels and everything."
She also appreciates Father


Jose Gonzalez who has been
very supportive a's well as other
members of the core committee
including officers of the
Council of Catholic Women
and two chair people of Respect
Life Committee, Dr. Albert
Bajohr and Norbert Walz. The
core committee acts as advisors
of the project. They are the
sounding board to help make all
the major decisions about how
the project is going to function.
This 'advisory group will
look into fund-raisers as they
anticipate needs such as mater-,
nity and baby clothing, cribs,
diapers, etc. Monetary dona-
tions will be accepted as the
funding for this project is mini-
mal at this time.
Rafferty is available to any-
one who may want further
information.. Call her at 385-
1934.
The Gabriel Project is a com-
munitywide outreach and is for
Catholic. and non-Catholic
young women. Angels are
standing in the wings ready to
give one-on-one support to
expectant mothers at risk of
having an abortion.
The Gabriel Project Crisis
Pregnancy phone numbers are
381-6817 (English) and 381-
5151 (Spanish). Callers will be
put in touch with their own per-
sonal angel.

Highlands Art League celebrates

big move to The Yellow House ,H J
I so-" - . - , ;i


By PATRICIA POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - The Board of
Directors of the Highlands Art
League entertained members
and volunteers at an open house
Thursday at The -Yellow House
on Lakeview Drive in Sebring.
The art gallery, gift shop and
office of the league will now be
housed in the newly refurbished
facility next to the library on
Lake Jackson.
Exhibits of many artists were
on display, with one room
devoted to the colorful paint-
ings of Tom Bruha, September
Artist of the Month. Bruha also
designed and built four move-
able walls, painted in rich col-
ors, which provide dramatic
backdrops for the beautiful
paintings on exhibit.


Items in the gift shop are now
integrated into the overall
scheme. Display cases shimmer
with hand-crafted jewelry, pot-
tery hangs overhead, wood
carvings, greeting cards, woven
scarves and other unique items
are artfully arranged to please
the eye and tempt the browser.
But the evening was all about
recognizing the league's volun-
teers who have Worked tireless-
ly all year to transform the new
space, tend the shop, help with
programs and events and work
behind the scenes in the office.
Board member Elsa Kahn
welcomed the guests by telling
them this special event was just
for members and volunteers
because "we want you to know
you are appreciated."
The art league promotes the


appreciation, study and devel-
opment of the arts through
exhibits and artist receptions,
art classes for children, teens
and adults, workshops featuring
well-known artists and special
events. League members are
now busy planning the Fine
Arts and Crafts Festival to be
held Nov. 11-12 in downtown
Sebring.
The former gallery next to
Highlands Little Theatre is
being transformed' into the Art
Education Center, which will
have classrooms and work
spaces for arts and crafts activi-
ties.
For more information about
classes and activities, call 385-
5312 or visit the Web site at:
www.highlandsartleague.com.

Other viewpoints

It seemed like a great idea: free college tuition for high
school students who made good grades.
The Bright Futures Scholarship program worked for a
while.
Now some of the state's public universities say it is
draining their finances.
The Bright Futures program paid from 75 percent to
100 percent of tuition and fees to 122,943 students in
2003-2004. Next year, the scholarship program's costs
will climb 11.4 percent, according to the Tallahassee
Democrat. That will raise the costs from $311.8 million
to $347.4 million. The program will cost twice as much
next year as it did five years ago, the Democrat reported.
The program is funded by the Florida Lottery.
The problem comes when tuition continues to rise. In
theory, the state receives more money, but the 5 percent
tuition increase is paid for by the state.
Presidents at larger institutions such as the University
of Florida and Florida State University want. reform
because they do not receive as much money for students
who continue in the program after their freshman year.
They want to increase test scores, which restricts the pro-
gram.
University of North Florida President John Delaney
said if that happens, many of the incoming freshmen who
are on the scholarship could not afford to attend college.
He says students attending UF and FSU need higher
grades and test scores to get into those schools. Raising
the scores would do nothing but hinder his students.
The Bright Futures Scholarship program helps stu-
dents who pull about a B average. Paying for college is a
struggle. Reform is needed. Discarding the program is
not the answer.

An editorial excerpt from The Flprida Times-Union.

Check out teenage drivers exiting the high school
parking lot after the day's last bell.
In many cases, they're animatedly talking on their cell
phones, paying more attention to conversations than the
road.
By doing so, they're putting themselves - and people


Many factors

- contribute to

those grim

statistics, but

cell-phone use

by inexperi-
enced drivers

doubtless plays

a role in some

of those need-

less deaths.


in other vehicles - at
unnecessary risk.
Teenagers account for
14.3 percent of car acci-
dents around the nation, a
disproportionate amount.
And automobile crashes
are the leading cause of
deathamong U.S. teens,
killing about 120 young,
persons per week, a trag-
ic waste.
Many factors con-
tribute to those grim sta-
'tistics, but cell-phone use
by inexperienced drivers
doubtless plays a role in
some of those- needless
deaths.
That's why we concur
with a recommendation
by the National
Transportation Safety


Board urging all states to prohibit teenagers and other
new drivers from using cell phones or any wireless com-
munication device.
The Governors Highway Safety Association also sup-
ports the ban, and some 11 states already either restrict
cell phone use for young drivers or ban it;completely.
Florida is not among them.
State lawmakers can do all Floridians a great service
during the Legislature's next session by heeding the safe-
ty board's call and making cell-phone use for easily dis-
tracted new drivers illegal.
Such a measure to enforce better driving habits among
teens can make everyone on Sunshine State highways
significantly safer.

An editorial excerpt from Florida Today.

Probationers and parolees in 18 states are allowed to
vote. But not in New Jersey. That means that 76,000 men
and women - more than the votes cast in six of the
state's 21 counties or all the eligible voters in midsize
cities such as Clifton and Trenton - are denied the right
to vote in New Jersey.
When you consider that the overwhelming majority of
those locked out of the voting booth are African-
American and Hispanic, the impact of those numbers is
particularly troubling. ...
A bill to restore voting rights to ex-convicts still under
state supervision has languished in the Legislature, it has
to be said, due to cowardice. If the Legislature won't act,
the courts should.
Parolees and probationers have served their prison
terms or are completing a program that allows them to
remain in the community. While ex-offenders are still
under state supervision, the assumption is that they're
attempting to live responsibly, which includes participa-
tion in the democratic process. The goal should be to
reintegrate them into society, not to stigmatize them.
If the contract between government and its citizens is
to be fulfilled, every effort must be made to extend the
right to vote to all, including ex-offenders who have paid
their debt to society.

Move them over to the 'rodent section'


At the risk of sound-
ing terribly stereotypi- | . 7p
cal, I am scared of L[AURA
mice. Yes, you can Lar
stand there anfd tell me
that I am bigger than
they are, that they are probably
more frightened of me then I
could ever be of them, but I still
scream if I see one scurry by.
Once I was able to overcome
this fear. I was teaching a class
of emotionally disturbed junior
high schoolers (back when
there was such a thing as junior
high). One period I had two
boys in class, both who were
convinced they were all big and
bad. A mouse got into the class-
room, and suddenly these brash
young men were cowering on
top of their desks.
I realized there was a tactical
advantage in demonstrating
more courage than my students
and sharing the floor with the
rodent rather than climbing my
desk. It is possible that a fear of

Look at the

foreign policies
Editor:
The meaning of the word
"persecute" means: to pursue in
such a way as to injure or afflict
- to cause to suffer because of a
belief.
Christians .are being perse-
cuted in 2005 throughout the
world. I have heard over and
over again that the United
States foreign policies are what
has caused our'being hated
throughout the world. I am pro-
posing to you, to take a very
close look at a few foreign
countries' government policies
and practices that I list below,
where Christians are harassed,
imprisoned, killed or deprived
of their possessions niJ hiber-'
ties because of- their faith in
Jesus.
Afghanistan signed its new
constitution in January 2004. It
recognizes Islam as the official
country's religion and does not
acknowledge the existence of
Christians in Afghanistan.
Christians say public persecu-
tion by the government disap-
peared with the Taliban, but
they are still not free to practice
their faith openly without fac-
ing persecution from radical
Muslims. .This � country has
48,000 mosques and no church
buildings.
Egypt was predominantly
Christian during the first cen-
turies after Christ. In 969 A.D.
the country was conquered by
Jawhar al-Siqilli and Cairo
founded as the new capital, but
thankfully Egypt's Coptic
Christian church never disap-
peared. The country's constitu-
tion gives preference to
Muslims, and Christians are
treated as second-class citizens,
denied political representation,
and discriminated against in
employment. Conversion from
Islam to Christianity is not ille-
gal, but some are imprisoned
for "despising Islam" or "incit-
ing use of property strife."
Indonesia is a collection of
many islands and was the site
of one of the few failures of a
communist movement to over-
throw a government. In 1965,
tensions built to a showdown
between communists and
Muslims. When the Muslims
emerged victorious, over half a
million communist sympathiz-
ers were killed, and many oth-
ers came to Christ. The govern-
ment forces people to carry an
identification card that includes
their religious status. Militant
Muslims have orchestrated an
Islamic jihad against Christians
with at least 8,000 people killed
and 600 churches destroyed

But when I do not
Ware have to prove some-
thing to teenagers my
response to a rodent scurrying
across the floor is pretty much a
shriek.
I am firmly convinced that
my marriage contract includes
that it is Don's job to kill mice,
roaches and other critters that I
don't want to touch with a 10-
foot pole. In return, Don main-
tains the contract includes my
matching his socks, which can
be quite a job given that a) I
have a dryer with the typical
sock appetite, and b) Don
insists on owning socks in 32
different shades of blue, which
makes matching pairs a test of
my eyesight and patience. But
that's another column.
Anyway, I bring the subject
of mice up because they may be
more dangerous than we first
thought. My evidence for this is
a Reuters story I found that

since 1996.
Iran and its overthrow of the
Shah in 1979 ended its friend-
ship with the West and installed
a Shiite Muslim government
set on crushing any deviating
faith. Despite constitutional
guarantees of religious free-
dom, Shi'a Islam -is the state
religion, and all other devia-
tions from Islam are severely
dealt with. Open witness to
Muslims is banned, and the
government has sent spies to
monitor Christian groups.
Believers are discriminated
against in education, employ-'
ment and property ownership.
Pastors have even been mur-
dered.
Iraq has experienced a trou-
bled history since Bible times.
This is the land where the Jews
were taken into exile and the
prophet Daniel served the kings
of Babylon. Religions were
accepted when they showed
loyalty to Saddam's regime,
and the importing of Christian
literature was restricted. After
the fall of the Saddam Hussein
regime, members of the under-
ground church said there was
new freedom for them to open-
ly practice their Christian faith
without fear of government
persecution. There are around
70 evangelical congregations in
Iraq, but conversions are doing
little more than replacing those
Christians who have fled the
country.
- Kuwait is best known in the
United States as the catalyst for
the 1991 Gulf War, in which
Kuwait was liberated from
Iraq. Although the Gulf War
resulted in loosening strict reli-
.gious rules in Kuwait, full free-
dom to worship is still not a
reality. Only Muslims may
become citizens. Christians


mouse! - grounded an airplane
for 13 hours while it. eluded
capture.
I am not kidding. The flight
was preparing to depart from
the Manila airport when a crew
member spotted the mouse
dashing across the aisle in the
economy section of the aircraft.
No word on if the crew member
shrieked, or if the mouse had
asked to be upgraded to First
Class before disappearing from
sight.
Now, you know that there is a
mouse on your plane. Are you
going to take off, figuring it's
just a mouse, people have
schedules to keep, and it's real-
ly no big deal? Maybe you
would, but not the captain of
this flight. He ordered all the
passengers off the plane while
maintenance staff attempted to
get rid of the rodent. They
fumigated the plane. They laid
traps. But they couldn't find the
mouse.
After 13 hours, the plane
finally took off, with the mouse
most likely still on board, "dead

work in Kuwait, but worship
must be within the Christian
community (a physical loca-
tion). Evangelism to Kuwaitis
is forbidden. The government
discourages Christianity by
providing financial incentives
for Muslims by purchasing
large quantities of Bibles to
burn them.
Pakistan gained independ-
ence from Britain in 1947, but
has been unstable ever since.
Its people have suffered
through three wars and endured
military regimes and corrupt
governments. Pakistan is an
Islamic republic. Shariah Law
has been increasingly applied,
even to Christians and Hindus,
despite it contravention of the
constitution. Many Pakistani
Christians have been falsely
accused of breaking Law 295c
- blaspheming Mohammed, a
crime punishable by death.
Some have even been killed by
mobs after being acquitted of
such charges.
Saudi Arabia once had a
large Christian population until
1,300 years ago when Islam
gained control, and all
Christians were expelled. It's
been reported that public rela-
tions firms in the United States
have been hired by the country
to help cover up its poor human
rights record. Any person who
does mission work or converts
a Muslim faces jail, expulsion
or execution. Even foreign
Christians visiting Saudi
Arabia are not allowed to bring
in a Bible and cannot assemble
together to worship.

that are also persecuting
Christians: Algeria, Bang-
ladesh, Belarus, Brunei,

or alive," according to the news
story. No word on how many
passengers declined to travel
under those conditions.
I must admit that the fact that
this mouse was able to elude
airport security is mildly dis-
turbing, to say the least. I'm
hoping it is not a terrorist
mouse, recruited to cause terror
in the skies by running across
the feet of passengers at 35,000
feet, or worse, the feet of the
pilot. (Can you imagine it?
"This is your captain speaking.
We're cruising at an altitude of

I think at the very least we
should make mice that want to
fly on planes go through metal
detectors. And then have their
own section in the plane - the
"rodent section." And if we
really are serious about poison-
ing them, we'll make sure we
serve them some airline food.

Don't make

mistake again
Editor:
New Orleans should have
never been built on ground that
is below sea level in the first
place.
But seeing that that is
ancient history, the same mis-
take should not be permitted
again.
There are millions of tons of
dirt farther north, that dirt could
be used to fill in New Orleans
over the rubble and rebuild on
top of that.
Don't make the same mis-
take again. No money should
be allocated to re-build New
Orleans on the same site, unless
it is filled in above sea level.

Bush to blame

for problems
Editor:
It's a settled fact in the minds
of the "Bush-haters," Demo-
crats, Communist, Socialist and
Leftist that President Bush
caused Katrina in an effort to
get rid of the blacks there.
The state of Louisiana had a
levee board charged with the
duty of keeping the levees
secure. This board like most of
the Louisiana government was
corrupt. They receive both fed-
eral and state money to care for

the levees.
Bush was able to get them to
take the levee money years ago
and build a $15 million cause-
way to a casino boat, form its
own police force and spend
$4.2 million to build a big
fountain, $45,000 for an inves-
tigator to dig up dirt on the
board's critics and then to
spend $45,000 to settle the
resulting lawsuit.
The levees were neglected
because Bush got them to
divert the levee money to these
foolish projects. The stage was
set.
Bush should have forced
Gov. Blanco to call up the
National Guard and where was
he when the mayor was won-
dering what to do while people
were dying. Bush should have
been there to tell the mayor to
use the school buses or any
means to get the people out.
Now, it seems that the most
of the water came from a
breach of the canal wall run-
ning into the city from the lake.
This breach occurred when a


barge broke loose from the
mooring. It follows that the
president failed to keep the
moorings repaired according to
"sources."
Hey, The New York Times
and CBS quote sources, why
can't we?
This completes the chain of
guilt for the president. He can't
lay the blame on an incompe-
tent mayor or a befuddled gov-
ernor.

Where is code
enforcement?

Editor:
For the past six months I
have been trying to get the
county to enforce what must be
a very low priority code viola-
tion to the county.
The mobile home next to my
rental property was destroyed
during the hurricanes last sea-
son and has been left aban-
doned by the owners since
September 2004. Needless to
say, not only is the mobile
home trashed but the weeds
and trash have collected up to


my waist.
This is a clear code violation
and health violation and a vio-
lation to each and every home-
owner on the block who has to
look at the eyesore. Snakes,
rats, cats and gators have been
sighted amongst the carnage. If
this were to happen in South
Florida the property would be
cleaned and a lien of a mini-
mum of $1,000 would be
placed upon the property and
subsequent fines assessed as
long as the owners let the prop-
erty stay in disarray.
As I drive my neighborhood
I see a number of the same
types of violations with snow
birds that abandon their houses
for the summer with no lawn
care along with construction
violations non-permitted.
Does anybody care because I
am not talking about a slum
neighborhood but a neighbor-
hood of mostly well-main-
tained homes? Does the county
have code enforcement?
Get with it commissioners
because I guarantee if Bob
Bullard lived next to this home
it would not look like it does.

Stop the spending? Stop it now


On Monday, Jan.
21, 1985, during his
second inaugural
address, my father -
President Ronald
Reagan - gave the
nation some very
sound advice when
he said, "We must act
now to protect future
generations from MAKIN
government's desire
to spend its citizens' MICHAI
money and tax them -i
into servitude when the bills
come due. Let us make it


unconstitutional for the Federal
Government to spend more
than the Federal Government
takes in."
Tragically we did not take
that advice, and the United
States government continues on
a wild spending spree the likes
of which has never before been
seen in the nation.
What appalls me is the fail-
ure of George W. Bush and the
Republican leadership in
Congress - both proudly bear-
ing the mantle of conservatism
- to curb this obsession with
squandering not only the
money of today's taxpayers, but
that of future generations who
will be saddled with the mon-
strous debts they have imposed.
This orgy of spending has to
be stopped, and stopped now. If
the Republican Party is to sur-
vive, it must reassert its tradi-
tional role as the guardian of the
public treasury and the sworn
foe of unrestrained government
spending.
While the president and his
allies in the GOP leadership on
the Hill have been turning a
deaf ear to the demands of rank
and file Republicans - in and


IG

out of Congress - a
growing coalition of
Republican Senators
and House members
.< ' is charting a path
towards restoring fis-
cal responsibility.
And they 'are begin-
ning to have an
effect.
SENSE As Bob Novak has
- reported, on Monday
REAGAN night a group of GOP
- Senators led by Sen.
John Ensign (R-Nev.) killed a
measure that was drafted in
secret under bipartisan auspices
and in which its sponsors
sought to sneak through a bill
sending $9 billion into state
Medicaid programs under the
pretext of hurricane relief.
Now $9 billion is peanuts at a
time when figures like $300 bil-
lion are tossed around for hurri-
cane relief as if they were con-
fetti, but it's a start, and a signal
that a growing number of GOP
legislators are saying they've
had enough and are not going to
take it anymore.
The other night Sen. George
Allen (R-Va.) told me that he
and Congressman James Talent
(R-Mo.) are proposing a consti-
tutional amendment giving the.
president the power of a line-
item veto. This is an idea whose
time has come - my father saw
that power as one way to
restrain the spending impulses
of pork-obsessed members of
Congress.
The whole deficit business
goes back to 1974 with the
Budget Impoundment Act of
1974, which took away the
authority of the president to
impound funds appropriated by
Congress that he believes, if


spent, would result in a budget
deficit.
Since that time the president
has been prevented from doing
anything to curb wasteful pork-
laden spending measures
except vetoing complete bills,
which in most cases proves to
be impractical.
In most cases, therefore, no
matter how frugal a president
might be, he's almost powerless
when it comes to putting the
reins on congressional spend-
ing. So clearly something needs
to be done.
Congressman Mike Pence
(R-Ind.) and Rep. Jeff Flake (R-
Ariz.) have been leading a
move to find ways to offset the
$200 or $300 billion now
planned for hurricane relief.
*They and their GOP allies on
the Hill are recommending
holding back certain programs -
such as the prescription drug
plan - for a year, and diverting
the tons of pork in the recently-
enacted, pork-heavy federal
highway bill to cover the cost of
the relief programs.
The growing sentiment
among rank-and-file members
of Congress will not be
quashed, and the leadership -
like it or not - will'have to fall
in line.
If they don't, you can bet that
the Republican Party is going to
lose control of Congress next
year, and with Democrats in
power government spending
will go through the roof.
Mike Reagan, the eldest son of
the late President Ronald
Reagan, is heard on more than
200 talk radio stations nation-
ally as part of the Radio
America Network.

SEBRING - The Hardee Wildcats have
gotten pretty good at overcoming adversity
over the past few seasons.
After all, this is a team that went 10-0
last season playing every game on the road,
and came into Friday night's game at

winning streak.

DeSoto hands Avon Park first defeat

James Young of Avon Park weaves his way through the DeSoto defense on Friday.


Four turnovers send

Devils to district loss
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
ARCADIA - That which is sweet can
quickly turn sour.
After a 5-0 start that evoked memories
of state championship seasons, Avon Park
took a 35-13 drubbing in the District 12-
3A opener at DeSoto that casts doubt on so
much as a playoff berth.
"We've got to rebound DeSoto
and get better," Avon Park
head coach T.C. Cousins 3
said, deflecting blame to Avon Park
himself. "We've gotten pro- 12 '
gressively worse the last 1 3
two weeks, and I don't Up Next
know why." Devils travel
With only two postseason to Lake Placid
.spots up for grabs among on Friday
Avon Park (5-1, 0-1 in the
district), DeSoto (3-3, 1-0), Sebring and a
Hardee team that's won 38 straight regular
season games, any loss in District 12-3A is
devastating.
"We can't lose another one," Avon Park
head coach T.C. Cousins said. "We can't
lose to Sebring and we can't lose to
.Hardee, or we won't make the playoffs."
"We're 1-0 in the district, and that's all
that matters," DeSoto head coach Gary
Morton said of his team, which feasted on

Blue Streak Classic

Foursome shoots 55 for scramble crown


News-Sun
SEBRING - What is impos-
sible for the individual can be
done through teamwork.
The four-person scramble for-
mat allowed the team of Rene
Brown, Mike Browning Grover
Crawford and Joe Salamone to
scorch the Harder Hall course for
a 17-under-par 55 and crown in
the first flight of the Blue Streak
Classic on Saturday.
Plenty of others went low ask
well. The team of Ron Bromley,
Erin Fitzpatrick, Scott Osborn
and Butch Spearman shot a 57
and finished in a tie for second
with the foursome of Charlie


Damron, J.S. Khara, Rocky
Khara and Alvin Waters.
The second flight champions
were just one stroke off the tour-
nament best. Sandy Foster, Artie
McIntyre, Marty Roepstorff and
Curtis Weldy teamed up to post a
16-under 56, while the grouping
of Ennis Caldwell, Alan Price,
Gary Williams and Jessica
Williams was four strokes back,
with a 60.
A match of cards determined
the winner of the third flight.
Though both groups shot 63s, a
birdie on No. 3 allowed the team

Fumbles


continue


to haunt


Dragons
BY JOHN RIT[ER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - It's a
lot harder trying to beat two
teanfs at once.
Not only did the Green
Dragons have to deal with
the explosive combination
of Mulberry quarterback
Keon Broxton and favorite
target Ricky Parker Friday
night, but the home team
had to manage an even
tougher battle at Roger
Scarborough Stadium - a
battle against themselves.
Four of the Dragons first
five drives were ended by
virtue of turnovers, one of
them a fumble inside the
five, and it didn't help that
the Panthers were ready to
take full advantage early.
Broxton and Parker
hooked up twice in the first
quarter on drives that fol-
lowed fumble recoveries to
give Mulberry a 14-0 lead,
and g6t together again for a
touchdown in the third,
never looking Mulberry
in the 35
rearview mir-
ror for a 35-7 akePlacid
victory over
the Dragons. 7
"I don't
know what it Up Next
is. I mean, we At home vs.
go out there Avon Park
and practice on Friday
the same things and never
fumble the ball and we
come out here and can't
hold on to the thing," Lake
Placid head coach Shaw
Maddox said.
Broxton threw for 229
yards and three touch-
downs, all to Parker, whose
6 catches for 136 yards led
both squads. -
"This isn't a normal
thing," Parker said about his
career night. "But first of
all, we've got to give it up
for the 0-line. Those five
made it big, and I'm thank-
ful, but got to stay humble."
Most of Parker's noise
was made early after his
team took over at the
Dragons 18-yard line. The
Panthers (4-1, 2-0 District
5-2A) got the golden field
position when Lake Placid
(1-4, 0-2) put the ball on the
ground on their first play
from scrimmage.
Three plays later,
Broxton, a sophomore, hit
the 6-foot-2 receiver across
the middle for a 22-yard
score and a 7-0 lead.
The pair would hookup
again later when Broxton
threw across the field on a
screen to the single-covered
Parker, who took it 48 yards

News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - Golfers who were
familiar with Placid Lakes Country Club
before the renovation will hardly recog-
nize it now.
"There's no way to describe the Placid
Lakes course now," said Larry Bush, a 4-
handicapper from Lake Placid. "It's a 300
percent improvement, and I think it's
equal or better to Highlands Ridge golf
course (in Avon Park). It putts true. I real-
ly enjoy playing it."
From the membership tees, it plays at
6,450 yards and stretches to 7,025 from
the tips. The majority of the fairways are
wide and inviting. *[y're large, with

News-Sun, Sunday, October 2, 2005


FIRST
Continued from IE
four Red Devil turnovers.
The Bulldogs intercepted
Avon Park quarterback T.K.
Hill three times, prompting
Cousins to believe a sore shoul-
der may be affecting the
junior's performance.
"It might have. He was sail-
ing everything," Cousins said.
"He made some bad decisions,
but he's a kid. He's still a good
quarterback. He'll rebound.
He's a tough kid."
Cousins also said his
receivers were partly to blame
for an attack that produced only
171 yards through the air and
never truly kicked into gear.
"We just could never get in a
rhythm," Cousins said. "We'd
get in a rhythm, and we'd turn
the ball over."
After DeSoto quarterback
Shay Shine scored to put the
Bulldogs up 14-0 with 10:27 to
go in the first half, Avon Park
mounted its lone charge. Hill
hooked up with Gerrard
Coleman three times for 60
yards, including a 22-yard
touchdown strike, to pull the
Devils to within 14-7.
After an exchange of punts,
Lee Albritton blocked a DeSoto
punt in the end zone and Rafael
Johnson pulled it out of the air
for a touchdown with 41 sec-
onds before halftime, but the
extra point was no good, leav-
ing Avon Park behind 14-13.
The DeSoto defense struck
back on its first chance in the
second half. After J.J. Peterson
picked off Hill and returned the
ball 31 yards to the Avon Park
44, Tavares Pressley rushed the
rest of the way for the first of
his two touchdowns on the very
next play.
Pressley, a senior wing
back/defensive back, hauled in
one interception, threw one
trick-play pass to Shine for 26
yards, and rushed for 91 yards
on eight carries.
In a wing-T scheme that had
worried Cousins coming into
the game, Pressley teamed with
running back Louis Anderson
to batter the Devil defense.
"He's a very steady player,"
Mortonr said of Anderson, who
gained the majority of his 117
rushing yards in the second
half. "He's a tough runner. He's
hard to bring down one-on-one.
He bangs the ball in there good.
I can't say enough about him."
The Devil defense breathed
life into the team when it
stopped DeSoto on three
straight plays from the Avon
Park 1, earning the ball back
with 10:19 to play. Yet the
offense proceeded to go three-
and-out, and Peterson capped
the next Bulldog drive with a
21-yard TD run to seal the
game.
"They weren't ready to
play," Cousins said. "They
weren't mentally ready to play.
It all comes back on my shoul-
ders."
The coach said a return to
fundamentals is in .order for
this week, and added that
despite the damage done, plen-
ty still remains within his
team's reach.
"I told -them 9-1 is still a
pretty good season," Cousins
said. "We could still be district
champions. We win out and
DeSoto gets beat, we're district
champions. So that's still our
goal. We're going to play hard,
we're going to correct our mis-
takes and go from there."

and three good runs by T.J.
Williams set up A.C. Wilson's
1-yard sneak that put, Sebring
(1-4, 0-1) up 13-7.
Williams had already run 70
yards for Sebring's first TD just
two plays after Hardee took a 7-
0 lead in the first quarter.
"We made enough stupid
mistakes to fill up a year.
Hopefully, we're finished with
that," Bryan said. "We're very
fortunate to come out of here
with a win tonight. We're in a
situation where we were primed
to lose, coming off an emotion-
al week last week with Bartow.
We got beat up pretty good

HAUNT
Continued from IE
to the house on the last play of
the first quarter.
Turning yards into points
was a little more difficult for
the Dragons' offense in the
meantime.
Despite gaining 102 yards on
their first five drives, turnovers
left them with nothing to show
for it. Three fumbles and an
interception prevented the
home team from gaining
momentum.
The miscues came to a cli-
max on the Dragons' fifth drive
of the game, when runs by
Stephen Gist and Brent
Bierman took Lake Placid
inside the 5. Gist picked up 25
yards on two carries during the
march, part of his game-high
120 yards on the night, while
Bierman's two runs were good
enough to pick up the other 17.
But on first-and-goal, the
Panthers stripped Lake Placid
on a dive play to avoid a touch-
down and maintain their 14-
point lead.
Yet the Dragons' defense
didn't budge during the next
two Panther drives, finally
enabling the Dragons to use
good field position to their
advantage to recover some of
the deficit on their final first-
half drive.
Inheriting the ball at their
own 44-yard line, Lake Placid
used four Mulberry penalties to
move to the Panther 21-yard
line and finally broke through
when Conlin Veley hit Gist on a
screen pass and the junior
bounced off three tackles to race
down the sideline with 38 sec-
onds remaining to make it 14-7.
The Lake Placid faithful
grew even louder when Ray
Brown stepped in front of a
Broxton pass at the end of the
half to ice the score heading

With starting tailback Chris
Hodges sidelined with an ankle
injury, Palmer stepped up for
the Wildcats, connecting with
Terry Redden for a 24-yard
scoring pass on a fake reverse,
then eluding pressure and find-
ing Chris Rich in the end zone
for a 45-yard touchdown on his
next pass to put the Wildcats up
by eight points with 1:13 left.
Ricky Wiggins' interception
of Chris Welborn's pass with
12.1 seconds left sealed the win
for Hardee.
Hamlin was proud of his
team's performance, even if the
score wasn't to his liking.
"I'm extremely proud of the
-effort," he said. "We said to win
this game that we had to leave
everything out on the field and
we had to make fewer mistakes
than they did.
"We didn't capitalize all the
times we had an opportunity to
capitalize, and they hit us on a
few things there at the end, but
the effort was tremendous
tonight.

Although Maddox added that
trailing at halftime is not what
he ever wants, momentum had
definitely shifted in the
Dragons favor.
. It didn't last long.
Ten seconds into the second
half, senior Tim London gave
his team that 14-point advan-

opening kickoff and taking it 71
yards past everyone wearing
green for Mulberry's third score
of the night.
Another touchdown scamper

kids did. You can't ask for any
more than that."


If you have been a bass fish-
erman for several years, you
know what I am talking about
when I say welcome to the
sucker club.
Like P.T. Barnum said,
there's one born every minute.
Yes, there was a time when I
bought every new bass lure
advertised in outdoor maga-
zines and on TV. I should have
known better, but I wasn't
alone. Most of you other guys
out there did the same thing.
We all found out that they
were just more gimmicks to
make some entrepreneur a lit-
tle richer.
I really gave all those differ-
ent and radical lures a work-
out, but I can't remember that
any of them caught bass any
better than those already in my
tackle box. I have learned to
let someone else try those
new-fangled things first, then
if any are really worthwhile I
will surely hear about it. '
Until then, I can wait and
I'll save money, too.
Do you remember a plastic
lure that consisted of a hollow
body to hold a live minnow?
Yep, I bought one. That was
back in the late 1940s. The
way it was made, water could
flow through it, thus keeping
your minnow alive. A bass, if
interested, could see the min-
now through the clear plastic.
Supposedly, he wouldn't be
able to resist such temptation
and the treble hooks would do
the rest.
The dam thing was more
trouble than it was worth and I
only tried it when I was fishing
alone. I didn't want anyone to
know that I actually bought
such a contraption. It wound
up in the trash can.
There were a few of those -
queer baits that I didn't fall for.
One was made by the Barnard
Plating Company of Ann
Arbor, Mich., in the '40s. I
saw only one and it was in a
friend's tackle box. It was
made of some type of metal, if
I remember correctly and was
about three inches long,

The front end could have
been the back end and vice-
versa. In other words, you
could tie your line to either
end. Pulling it from one end
would cause it to sink, running
under water. Tie your line to
the other end, and it would run
on top of the water.
My friend and I were fishing
the day he made a long cast
and his line broke sending the
ridiculous thing sailing across
the lake. I was glad because I
likely saved a couple of bucks
because I was beginning to
think of buying one.
Sometimes dumb luck saves
you from doing foolish things.
Women's Tour to start
The Women's Bassmaster
Tour will hold its first event on
Sam Rayburn Reservoir in
Texas Oct. 20-22.
The first year schedule has
five tournaments, one each in
Alabama, Arkansas, North
Carolina and two in Texas.
Other such attempts at bass
tournaments for women have
failed over the years due to a
lack of sponsor interest. One
group in Winter Haven flour-
ished for a few years but disin-
tegrated when it failed to be
self-supporting.
The men's tournaments
seem to be doing well and it
would be great if this new
group of women anglers were
to enjoy as much success.

Nintendo's

latest game

device scores

Game Boy Micro
Nintendo; $99
****i Score: 4.5 out of 5
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
he third incarnation of
Nintendo's Game Boy
Advance line, Game Boy
Micro, just might be the quin-
tessential pocket game device.
Internally Micro is more or
less the same as the bi-folding
Game Boy Advance SP, itself a
revamped update of the origi-
nal Game Boy Advance. Hence,
Micro plays all GBA/GBASP
games - it is a GBA, just mod-
estly miniaturized, cosmetically
sexier and easily the best of the
three. *
Now roughly the size and
shape of a modern cellphone or
an iPod Mini, Game Boy Micro
has natural mass appeal; no
folds, nice lines, faux chrome
accents, headphones-ready,
pocket- or purse-friendly
For fashion-conscious folks, it
features changeable faceplates,
with three available out of the
box - which also work as dis-
posable screen protectors.
While the display screen is
comparatively tiny at just 2
inches (diagonal), it's also the
clearest, with SP resolution, but
packed in tighter and brighter.
More important, it's backlit.
To date, the SP's screen was
merely front lit from reflected,
white LED, giving it a slightly
washed-out look, and the origi-


rial, now discontinued GBA
screen had no lighting at all,
which was brutal.
Ironically, Nintendo also has
just re-released the Game Boy
Advance SP, quietly, almost
covertly, also with a new and
properly backlit-screen for huge-
ly.improved visual clarity, but at
the stayed SP price point of
$79.99.
The Micro currently retails
for $99.99. But even though you
pay more and get less face with
the Micro, it's still the better
buy for anyone other than the
ardent gamer. After all, pulling
out a bi-folding SP on the bus is
tantamount to affixing a pro-
peller to that cap on your head.
Pulling out a larger, more pow-
erful, more expensive Sony PSP
makes you look like an affluent
propellerhead, pulling out a
touchy feely Nintendo DS makes
you look like an aspiring pro-
pellerhead and pulling out any
other pocket game device makes


.- The ratings: * *** - Excellent **** - Very good


you look like an idiot.
-But the Micro's singular styl-
ishness seems to carry similar
status as an iPod Mini or a
tricked-out cellphone. It's a gadg-
et of stolen-moment distraction,
proving that you're not neces-
sarily a rabid gamer, but a tech-
savvy casual player taking a big
step up from "Snakes" and
"Java" on your cell, or perhaps a
.former rabid gamer who was
once told to "get a life" and did
so - without denying your
glory gamer days past.
Which leads us to what you're
actually going to play on Micro.
With more than 800 titles avail-
able (in North America) in the
Game Boy Advance format,
there's a lot to choose from.
Granted, the majority of them
are shamelessly derivative, side-
scrolling, platform-hopping,
berry-picking games as tired as
the day is long, but any of those
are good for a quick gaming fix
and most likely available in the


pre-played bargain bin for a
song.
Moreover, that also leaves
scores of great GBA games to
choose from; Your "Mario"
This, "Metroid" That, "Zelda"
Other Thing and the whole cata-
log of Classic-NES-for-GBA
games to boot.
Screen size being what it is,
you will get eyestrain if you
play on Micro for too long -
that's where the DS, SP and
Sony PSP are better to best,
respectively - and the thing is
so small that large-thumbed
people will feel a little oafish
playing it.
It doesn't play old Game Boy
and Game Boy Color games,
though the GBA SP does.
However, it's still the quintes-
sential, stolen moment, way-
stylin' player that fits in your
pocket or purse and leaves room
for anything else you might
want to hide there, like your
propeller cap.

A bundle to bark about
Starting Oct. 24, Nintendo will offer a limited-edition
Nintendo DS bundle featuring a "pearl pink" or teal system as
well as a "Best Friends" edition of the best-selling
"Nintendogs."
The pet-simulation game is otherwise available in three ver-
sions, virtually identical to each other save for the initial group
of available puppies (all 18 of which become available if you
play enough), while the special bundle-only version of
"Nintendogs" features the six most popular breeds from the
other editions (i.e. Labrador retriever, golden retriever, German
shepherd, beagle, Yorkshire terrier and miniature dachshund).
Essentially it's a fourth edition, but only available in the
$149.99 bundle. Separately, a DS costs $129.99 while a copy of
"Nintendogs" costs $29.99, so you're saving a whopping 10
bucks, but you also get that exclusive coloring as well as a bone-
shaped, screen-cleaner, key-chain thingy (wow!).
"Nintendogs" has been smash hit since it first launched in
Japan back in April; August in North America. To date,
"Nintendogs" has sold nearly 1.5 million copies.


TIP OF THE WEEK
Playing secrets to help you master your favorite games


In "Nintendogs," make sure
your dog is fed and watered before
each walk as doing so will
increase your chances of finding
presents rather than garbage.
Also, once you've taught your
Nintendog to sit and to jump, tell
it to jump from the sitting posi-
tion and it will do a backflip.

Water is definitely in play from the No. 8 tee at Placid Lakes.


LAKES

scalloped edges and undula-
tions. They have swales, ridges,
slopes and typically large
bunkers to protect them.
It may look deceptively easy,
but there are enough penalizing
factors to discourage careless
shots.
The third hole's dogleg right,
for example, invites golfers to
cut the comer, but the landing
slopes toward the water. Hole
No. 4 is straight, but if your
approach is long, there's a
watery surprise. The eighth
hole is at once the most beauti-
ful and treacherous. It's the
only carry over water with
alluring palm trees jutting from
a centered island. The bailout
area on the right is narrow, and
to the right of that is a jungle.
The short yardage on No. 14
begs the long hitter to go for it,
but an elevated bunker about 20
yards in front of the green grabs
anything that doesn't fly all the
way. No. 15 is a dogleg right
that encourages a shortcut, but a
Goliath bunker lurking behind
pine trees will make golfers
regret that move.
At No. 16, a monstrous
wasteland in the crook of the


dogleg will fool a lot of players
into thinking they can carry it,
and a straight but long drive can
be gobbled up by more sand.
The par-5 17th looks unchal-
lenging, but placement is
important because the approach
requires threading your shot
through a narrow passage of
trees with bunkers both left and
right.
The final hole contends with


No. 8 for beauty, but don't let
your guard down. At sunset, the
18th is particularly stunning
with its gentle rolls and delicate
shadows. There's water on both
sides, and if you go over the
green, get out your ball retriev-
er.
It's a course that is not over-
whelming but will keep golfers
honest.
