SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 24/NUMBER 14


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Alone, scared and with
a newborn, a lot of young mothers have
no idea where to turn.
In the past, some have covered their
pregnancy only to abandon the baby
wherever they could.
People still abandon children, as seen
with the baby boy left at St. Catherine's
Catholic Church in Sebring, but the situ-
ation is better now.
By 1998, reporter and anchor Jodi
Brooks with WPMI-TV in Mobile, Ala.,
had covered 19 deaths of newborn
infants from neglect or abandonment.
She decided to work with the district
attorney to fix the problem. It lead to
new legislation allowing a mother to
leave her unharmed baby at a hospital,
no questions asked, without fear of legal
prosecution.
Florida also has that law. If a mother
takes a newborn to a hospital, or a
manned fire or emergency medical serv-
ices station, the baby is accepted and


turned over to an adoption agency.
Not every new or expectant mother
knows thii. That's wh) "A Save Haven
For New borns, exists. it's a hotline and
referral service in 41 counties, including
Highlands County, to put young mothers
in touch with people who can help them.
The Miami-based not-for-profit.
organization also provides public educa-
titn through billboards, school programs
and media public service announce-
ments, according to Nick Silverio, of the
Gloria M. Silverio Foundation that runs
the program.
He got involved after reading about
Brooks' work in Alabama. Since starting
in 2001, his service has assisted 39
mothers in Florida to take infants to a
safe place.
"If a girl or woman is thinking of
leaving the child at a place, we can help
her get to safe haven, or help her get
medical care," Silverio said.
It's not a counseling service, Silverio
said. It only does referral, but it is confi-

Benton chooses


an undersheriff

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton has
chosen an undersheriff.
Terrence Lewis, director of the Florida Criminal Justice
Executive Institute for the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, will officially start Nov. 23, according to Lisa
McGehee, chief of staff over administrative services.
Before that, he served as colonel at the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office.
Typically, the undersheriff supervises the law enforcement
bureau, detention bureau, and administrative services, but his
Highlands County duties have not been defined, McGehee
said.
"I felt like I needed to get my arms around the whole organ-
ization," Benton said. "I wanted to know all the ins and outs
of the operation."
She believes Lewis can help her sustain the momentum
from the last 10 months of reorganizing and retooling the
office.
Before joining FDLE in 2004, Lewis, 53, served 27 years
at the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, where he supervised
corrections, was a Special Weapons and Tactics team com-
mander, and served as certified trainer, patrol captain, direc-
tor of support services, investigator supervisor, and liaison for
the narcotics unit.
Sheriff's office staff met Lewis Wednesday night when

Deputies get a description of mother


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING. - Highlands County
sheriff's deputies have a description that
might help them contact the mother who
left her newbdrnm boy on church steps last
month
After nearly two weeks of investiga-
tion, Sheriff's Det. Sean Casey has
talked to a juvenile who lives near St.
Catherine's Catholic Church in Sebring,
where church members found a 4-pouind,
10-ounce infant. The child was wrapped
in a red bath towel mat and placed in a
cardboard box with another red towel as
bedding.
The juvenile told Casey of seeing a
Hispanic female near the front of the
church. The woman was, allegedly,
pushing a blue stroller with a storage
carrier underneath, a visor and cup hold-
ers on the handle.
Based on the description, she had


browh shouilder-length hair A ith blonde
streaks, stood 5 feet 6 inches to perhaps
5 feet 8 inches tall. weighed about 130
pounds, and % as perhaps 20-30 years
old.
Casey said age estimates may be off
because the witness is 'oung and may"
have difficulty disunguishing ages. Plus,
the witness was 150-200 feet away at the
time.
Casey was able to narrow the ume
from the original reports. The witness
claimed to see her between 1:30-2:15
p.m. Monday, Sept. 26. Initial reports
said the baby was placed there between
1-3:30 p.m. that day.
Casey said the baby is doing well and
is very healthy. The Department of
Children and Families is looking into
placing the child with adoptive parents.
Anyone with information on this case
should contact Casey at the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office, 402-7200.

First DSAC meeting a frank discussion of failure


* Election failure causes woes,
11A.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Jessica
Lunsford Act, passed by the
Florida Legislature earlier this
year, is considered a policy fail-
ure by most school administra-
tors.
It seemed simple in the
abstract; screen every individ-
ual who was going to spend
time among children in county
schools, to make sure convicted
pedophiles were kept away
from the children.
Implementing the act, district
administrators say, has created a
costly snarl of red tape.
"It's just become a nightmare
for human resource (depart-
ments) across Florida,"
Vivianne Waldron, coordinator
of human resources, said, as she
briefed members of the District
School Advisory Committee at
their first meeting of the school
year Tuesday night.
In the first place, she said, it
is an expensive mandate. The
school district pays for a volun-
teer's screening, vendors have
to pay for their own.
There are two levels of back-


ground checks. Level one runs
the name of an individual
through the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement's data
base. Level two involves fin-
gerprinting, and running those
prints through state and nation-
al data bases. The cost of the
first screening is $26, the cost
of the latter, $61.
Individuals who may come
into direct contact with stu-
dents, especially when unsuper-
vised, must have the more strin-
gent clearance.
Any vendors doing regular
business with schools must
have its workers fingerprinted.
For example, Annett Bus Lines
has had to fingerprint 65
employees.
For major vendors like Coca
Cola or Sprint, the costs are
tremendous.
Jeff Mechlin, of Sprint, will
have to have all of his service
personnel printed, because he
doesn't know who he'll send
out on a job.
"You can appreciate we had a
lot of happy, happy people,"
Waldron said with a wry laugh.
Wally Cox, school superin-
tendent, told the DSAC mem-
bers that major vendors are lob-


bying the Legislature to revisit
the bill andamend it.
But the actual cost of the
screenings is only part of the
problem, Waldron explained.
There are hidden costs as
well. For example, there were
3,000 vendors registered with
the district last year. Many
needed multiple screenings.
Estimating a similar number
this year, and the problems of
simple logistics becomes clear.
Waldron said.
The district is now process-
ing 30 people a day; so many,
an additional full-time position
has been added to the budget.
There is also confusion
regarding who should have
what screening, and even
regarding what constitutes a
disqualifying offense. A person
cannot have a record of moral
turpitude, but it is up to the dis-
trict to decide exactly what that
is, Waldron said.
It leaves a lot unclear, which
leads to questions regarding lia-
bility.
'Every school district is
assigned a code number. Should
a fingerprint bring up an arrest
record, or if someone already
fingerprinted is arrested for the

and family miniature golf dur-
ing the day will give way to an
adult miniature golf tournament
at night at a fund-raiser.for The
Children's Museum of the
Highlands.
Every year, the not-fof-profit
children's learning center puts
on a mystery dinner theater
show, the weekend before St.
Valentine's Day.
This year, they are adding
two events rolled into one.
It really is' two events,,
according to Linda Crowder,
director of the museum, one for
kids and one for adults.
On Saturday, Oct. 22, the
museum will host aminiature
golf play day for kidsarid fami-
ly at the Sebring Civic Center.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., people
can play 18 holes for $5.
Kids can enjoy face painting,


crafts, refreshments and
karaoke.
At 4 p.m. the family event
will close off for a corporate
team challenge. For $150, a
team of three can play while
their three guests can enjoy the
party, including karaoke, chair
massages, caricature drawings,
Foosball, and card games.
The fun will include door
prizes; trophies for first, second
and third place; and a live auc-
tion on a miniature golf hole
setup, complete with ornamen-
tal plants from Hidden Acres
Nursery.
Crowder said it will include a
multi-media component:
Digital photos of people play-
ing golf displayed throughout
the party.
Food will be donated by R.J.

to jump through a lot of hoops
both locally and' at the state
level for that. They will set up a
tent on the lawn behind the
civic center and will rope off
the area.
Crowder hopes this second
fund-raiser will help build
funds to improve and expand
the museum. Each year, the
mystery dinner show sells out
with a waiting list, but it was
the only fund-raiser, Crowder
said.
"We wanted to involve fami-
lies in this event, because mys-
tery dinner is for adults,"
Crowder said. "We're well
tuned into the kids'. 1 don't

first time, the school district's
code is notified, usually within
24 hours of the arrest.
The school district is then the.
responsible agent and has to
notify everyone with a need to
know, of the arrest record.
It is that responsibility that
led the district to withdraw
from an inter-local agreement
with six other counties, Cox
said.
If the district receives a hit on
,a set of fingerprints it will have
to call every school, which had
ever asked for that individual's
screening results. Those notifi-
cations have to be done within
48 hours.
In other words, the district
becomes responsible for that
individual.
While district administrators
at first thought costs could be
held down by passing informa-
tion county to county in a recip-
rocating agreement, the liabili-
ty, time and man power
involved, made an inter-local
agreement impractical, even
though it means some people
will have to be fingerprinted
more than once.
The same problems dog an
FDLE Web site, which posts the


results of every fingerprint sub-
mitted within a specific time
frame. The idea was to save
expense and make it easier for
school districts to share infor-
ination.
But fingerprints are only
posted on the Web site for 90
days, and deleted after that, to
make room for nc,,'Cei pLIoin.;
That means an inqtiLing ditridL.
will still have to Lint1act the-reg�
istering district, which leads
right back to serious liability
issues, Waldron explained.
Cox reported that the Florida
Association of District School
Superintendents will also be
asking the legislature to revisit
the act.
Its concern goes beyond the
cost or difficulties of imple-
mentation. Jessica Lunsford's
attacker was staying in a home
near her, Cox explained.
"Of course we have to pro-
tect children," he said, "but we
don't believe if all of this had
been done, it wouldn't have
prevented the attack on her."
Finally, the state legislature
set very short deadlines. The
district is supposed to complete
all fingerprinting of volunteers
and vendors by Nov. 1. .

New King works


unveiled at Palms


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Introduced by
Activities Director Lester
Kesselring, Janet King unveiled
two of her watercolor rendi-
tions of The Palms of Sebring
facilities recently. One work
represents the Hotel
Sebring/Palms Manor and the
second represents the present
Palms of Sebring.
A widely, recognized artist,
King was. commissioned by
The Palms to create the rendi-
tions and delighted the audi-
ence with her presence during
the showing, in the activities
center. After thanking the own-
ers and Kesselring for this
opportunity, King mentioned
how pleased she is to be able to
continue her participation in the
preservation of Sebring's. his-
toric buildings via this venue.
Chief Executive Officer Ted
McMullan expressed his appre-
ciation for being able to com-
mission "homegrown" talent
for this project and explained
that even though King was not
born here she had lived in
Sebring since 1981.
"I am thrilled and excited to
have this beautiful work to
hang here in the lobby along
- with two.other watercolors that
Ms. King created. She has even,
agreed to allow us to produce
postcards and foldover note
card replicas to sell," he said.
These historic art pieces are
among the benefits from the
Annual Apple/Harvest Festival
presented by The Palms for
several years. These special
-gifts of fine art are for the
enjoyment of the residents.
Members of The Palms
Auxiliary and some of the resi-
dents contributed their craft
items and other assistance
toward the successes of the
Annual Apple/Harvest Festival,
which was held last weekend.
History of The Palms
Built in 1926 by George E.
Sebring, the Hotel Sebring
served as host to many visitors
and grand parties until 1961
when it was purchased by
Florida Brethren Homes, now
The Palms. Sheltered living
arrangements in a safe environ-
ment were soon offered in the
"Palms Manor."
A 24-bed nursing home was
constructed in 1965 adjacent to
the hotel to offer skilled nursing
care. In 1969 a second floor
added to the nursing home

News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County has a new set of pipes.
On Tuesday, county com-

Deputy Sheriff Robert
Campbell officially the county
piper since he has performed
the Scottish bagpipes at several
ceremonies and presentations.
Meanwhile, David Batty,
"Towne Pyper" since 1997, has
been unable to perform locally
since he has traveled extensive-
ly since retiring. He has been
elevated to the status of Piper
Emeritus.
Commissioners noted that
the county has been well repre-
sented by several talented bag-
pipers for many years, keeping
alive a tradition of ceremonial

only finds roots in Scotland,
but also in ancient
Mesopotamia.


increased the bed count to 58
beds.
In 1979, a decision was made
to replace the Palms Manor
(hotel) and enlarge the nursing
home. In 1984, its 25th anniver-
sary year, the eight-story Palms
Tower and the east-west wings
of the health care center were
built.
By 1991 The Palms of
Sebring had separated from the
Palms Estates of Lorida and the
Palms Foundation was char-
tered. Ted McMullan purchased
The Palms of Sebring in 2001
and became its CEO.
The Palms of Sebring cele-
brated 46 years of meaningful
ministry with older adults in
June of this year.

of several hours. One of the sus-
pects fired a shot in the air to
intimidate the victims not to
contact law enforcement.

After they finished, they
forced the two back in the car,
made them drive back to where


they kidnapped them, and left.
The victims 'did contact
police. The sheriff's office
processed the crime scene and
the victims helped them obtain
genetic evidence, which was
then sent to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement Regional
Operations Center in Tampa.
Thanks to a large volume of
genetic evidence cases, it took
five months to receive lab
results. However, one DNA
profile from submitted evidence
matched Williams, reports said.


Hardee men held on federal charges for meth distribution


SEBRING - Three men charged with
armed trafficking of methamphetamine are
now facing federal charges.
Jessie Vasquez Martinez, 20, of
Wauchula; Pedro Vincente Sanchez, 22, of
Zolfo Springs; and Jorge Islas Perez, 31,
from Zolfo Springs, are all being held on
federal warrants for possession of metham-
phetamine with intent to sell or distribute.
All are being held without bond. They


were arrested in a controlled purchase oper-
ation on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Sanchez allegedly negotiated the sale for
the parking lot of the Circle K gasoline sta-
tion at the U.S. 27 and U.S. 98. He and
Martinez arrived in a black 2001 Hyundai
at 9:30 p.m. that night, according to arrest
reports.
They negotiated with the undercover
officer, reports said. Sanchez made a phone


call to a third person. Then, at 10:30 p.m., a
blue 1995 Buick arrived, driven by Perez,
reports said:
Sanchez got out of his car and walked
over to him, returning with a clear bag con-
taining 127 grams - roughly 4.48 ounces
- of methamphetamine, reports said. ,
Deputies discovered Martinez had a
loaded .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun
in his front pants pocket, reports said.

highway.
Witnesses told FHP he failed


to stop at the sign and pulled
out across southbound traffic in
the path of a 2001 Ford, driven
by Brian M. Sullivan, 45, of
Venus.
Sullivan couldn't stop and
his car hit the left front and side
of the Lincoln, sending it off


onto the southbound shoulder.
Sullivan's car, however, crossed
the paved median into north-
bound lanes, and stopped on the
opposite shoulder.
Sullivan received minor
injuries. Both men were wear-
ing seat belts.

local woman allegedly attacked another in a
motel room Monday night.
Police responded and later arrested
Latonya Michelle Wright, 27, of Sebring, in
the area of Highlands Avenue - now

Lemon Street.
She has been charged with aggravated
assault and battery. No bond is set.
According to arrest reports, Wright and

About 30 minutes later,

upset, and then attacked her, trying to stran-
gle her with her hands around her throat.
The victim broke free and tried to leave,

Hurricane Hunter to speak to Military Officers Oct. 15


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Although
South Central Florida has more
than its share of hurricanes in
the past few years, predictions
are that there is still a change of
more to come this season.
Captain Stephen A. Kozak,
commander of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration Aircraft
Operations Center based at
MacDill Air Force Base, will be
the guest speaker foj Saturday's
luncheon meeting of the South
Central. Florida Military
Officer's Association of
America.
The MOAA chapter, com-
posed of commissioned and
warrant officers or the seven
uniformed services of the
nation (which includes NOAA),


will be meeting at the Avon
Park Air Force Range for this
luncheon, said retired Army
Brigadier General Peter B.
Injasoulian, chapter president.
"We will be looking forward
to hearing Captain Kozak's out-
look on and predictions for the
rest of this year's hurricane sea-
son," Injasoulian said. He men-
tioned that many of the fore-
casters don't have the experi-
ence in flying into the eye of
hurricanes on a regular basis
like Kozak.
"We welcome local officials
as well as other citizens who are
interested in weather and what
we might expect in the future,"
Injasoulian said.
A native of Zanesville, Ohio,
Kozak is a 1981 graduate of
Ohio University. He also com-


pleted his graduate work with a
master's of science in financial
management from the Naval
Postgraduate School and a inas-
ter's degree in national resource
strategy from National Defense
University.
Following Ohio State, he
served in the United States
Navy as a flight officer aboard
anti-submarine aircraft. In
1991, he transferred into the
NOAA Commissioned Officers
Corps and joined the Aircraft
Operation Center. A career nav-
igator, he has flown more than
4,000 hours in the P-3 aircraft,
accumulated more than 130
hurricanes penetrations and
served as a navigator instructor
in both the Navy and NOAA.
Kozak's aviation tours have
included assignments with

Florida DOT observes fifth annual Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day


Special tot he News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE - The
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is spon-
soring the fifth annual "Put the
Brakes on Fatalities Day" on
Monday to encourage the pub-
lic to take a greater stand in
keeping themselves and their
loved ones froth becoming a
vehicular crash fatality. The
goal is to unite Florida in
achieving one full day of zero
traffic deaths by encouraging
safer behavior and actions and
by promoting safer roadways.
Nationally, traffic crashes
cause an average of 115 fatali-
ties every day - that's one death
every 13 minutes. In 2004,
Florida experienced 3,257 fatal-
ities and 2,936 fatal crashes on


its highways. Motor vehicle
fatalities are the leading cause
of death for all Floridians ages
five to 34.
"Whether as a driver, passen-
ger, pedestrian or cyclist, by
working together in a concerted
effort, we can make a difference
to stop these tragedies on
Florida's roads," said FDOT
Secretary Denver Stutler.
"Drive as if your life depends
on it."
A total of 24,109 people died
on Florida's highways from
1997 through 2004.
Nationwide, 76 percent of all
fatal crashes occur on two-lane
roads while only 14 percent of
crashes occur on roads with
four or more lanes. In Florida,
33 percent of major roads,

Hearing for a new Zoning

A. Creating a new zoning'
district A-1 (Airport district) in
the Code of Ordinances is on
the Board . of County
Commissioners( Agenda for
Oct. 11. The agenda item was
heard by the Planning and
Zoning Commission / Local
Planning Agency on Sept. 13
and by the Board of County
Commissioners on Sept. 27.
This is the second required pub-
lic hearing that is required for
adoption ,of Land Development
Regulation or zoning text
amendments. All changes
approved by the Board of
County Commissioners on
September 27, 2005 are includ-
ed in Attachment 1, the revised
ordinance.
B. Public hearing for adop-
tion of a new zoning district A-
1 (Airport district) - Sebring
Airport Authority, C/O Michael
Swaine and Mike Willingham,


excluding the Interstate, are two
lanes.
The good news is that by tak-
ing pro-active steps, the public
can greatly reduce the odds of
becoming a statistic. Driving
defensively, obeying the posted
speed limits, slowing down in
bad weather and in construction
and school zones and not drink-
ing and driving are just a few
examples of how drivers can
reduce their chances of be,,
a crash.
Other important safety prac-
tices include buckling up every
time on every drive, using
appropriate child safety seats,
wearing a helmet when cycling
or skating and crossing the
street in crosswalks.
Put the Brakes on Fatalities


Proposal to create a zoning
district in the text of the zoning
code (Article 5 of chapter 12 of
the Code of Ordinances,
Highlands County, Florida) that
will eventually (in October or
November, 2005) be applied or
mapped on the Sebring Airport
property.
Staff Recommendation to
P&Z & BOCC: Recommend
approval to both the Planning

Day promotes:

* Safer driving behaviors.
Of the motor vehicle occupants
killed in traffic crashes during
2004 in Florida, 62 percent
,were not using safety equip-
ment. In addition, 69 percent of
children ages 1 to 17 years old
who were killed in traffic crash-
es in Florida were not using
safety equipment.
Alcohol-related crashes in
Florida account for nearly 34
percent of all traffic fatalities.
Nearly 31 percent of all traf-
fic fatalities in Florida during
2004 were pedestrians, bicycle


drivers and motorcycle drivers.
Deaths and injuries on
Florida's highways cost our cit-
izens more than $14 billion
annually.

* Safer vehicles.
Every year, Americans travel
nearly 2.8 trillion miles in the
more than 200 million regis-
tered vehicles on U.S. roads.
Proper vehicle maintenance
plays an important role in
reducing crashes.
Check your tires for proper
inflation pressure, tread wear
and alignment.
Replace worn windshield


wipers.
If your vehicle has antilock
brakes, operate them correctly
by "stomping and steering"
rather than pumping them.
If you are buying a vehicle,
consider safety devices and
safety ratings as a top priority.
Check out the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) Web
site at www.nhsta.gov for vehi-
cle safety ratings.

Davis assures chamber



U.S. 27 will be four-laned


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
June 2, 1965.
Senator
H a y w a r d
Davis of
Lake Placid
made a report
on the State 4
Legislature J- i
progress
Friday in '
Sebring and
stated that
although he was firmly opposed
to issuing bonds for the State of
Florida, he co-sponsored the
Governor's $300 million emer-
gency highway bond program
because he. personally knows
that such an emergency condi-
tion does exist in our State and
immediate action is absolutely
necessary.
Because 80 percent of
Florida tourists come via auto,
most traffic accidents occur on
our intra-state bi-laned high-
ways and U.S. 27, he said, will
unquestionably be four laned
from the Georgia line to Miami


because of the importance as a
through route in the center of
the-State.
Senator Davis spoke before
the annual dinner meeting of
the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce which was well
attended. Representative Morris
Adams of Avon Park accepted
the Chamber's invitation to also
attend the meeting but was
detained in Tallahassee because
of action to be
, --1, taken on
/-' - ", .7 " pending legis-
^-/// " lation.
I FThe recent
p position
which was
taken by
Represen-
tative Adams
against school teachers' pay
raises was defended by saying
"Both of us would like to
increase teachers' salaries, but,


under the Legislature's hold-
the-line policy, there is just not
enough money coming in to do
it."
Davis assured his audience
that some funds will be appro-
priated by the Legislature for
the Highlands-Hardee Junior
College promotion.
On the subject of re-appor-
tionment, Davis remarked that
if certain proposals that had
been so far advanced were
approved, it was altogether pos-
sible he could not "afford" to be
a Florida Senator because of the
extremely large territory that
would embrace his district the
time and expense of traveling
would be prohibitive.
The following Directors
were elected to serve the
Chamber for terms of three
years each: Mrs. Stanley Davis,
Kenneth Grady, Alf W.
Roepstorff and Ron Wilson.

Nine Broward

residents

charged with

FEMA fraud
MIAMI - Nine Broward
County residents have been
charged with illegally obtain-
ing disaster relief after last
year's Hurricane Frances, gov-"
ernment officials said Friday.
Each defendant was sepa-
rately charged in a one count
indictment with making false
claims to the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency. The indictments says
each defendant falsely filed to
FEMA that he or she had sus-
tained personal property dam-
age during Hurricane Frances.
Based on these false repre-
sentations and claims, each
defendant received FEMA dis-
aster relief assistance, said
U.S. Attorney R. Alexander
Acosta. The amounts received
ranged from about $3,000 to
more than $11,000.
FEMA provided financial
and other assistance to those
who suffered property losses
and damage from Hurricane
Frances, which made landfall
Sept. 5, 2004, in Martin
County.

Florida won't

approve

Allstate rate

increase
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida's insurance regulator
said Friday it won't approve
requests by Allstate Floridian
Insurance and Allstate
Floridian Indemnity to
increase property insurance
rates by more than 15 percent
on average statewide.
The Florida Office of
Insurance Regulation issued a


notice of "intent to disap-
prove"-the rate filings at the
end of business Friday.
Allstate Floridian was seeking
an increase that would have
been 16.3 percent on average,
and Allstate. Indemnity was
seeking an increase that would
average 24.4 percent
statewide.
The companies can seek to
appeal the decision in an
administrative hearing or in
arbitration. They can also file
amended rate proposals. If the
companies are ultimately
denied, any money the compa-
nies have already collected in
anticipation of being granted
the rate hikes would have to
be refunded.
A statement issued by the
OIR said that the denials were
"premised on Allstate's failure
to adequately respond to ques-
tions posed by the office and
to adequately support its pro-
posed rate increase." Officials
from the office didn't return
calls made Friday evening
seeking further explanation.
"After a thorough review
and analysis by our actuarial
staff, the filing failed to justify
an increase and was deficient
in several areas," state
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty said in a state-
ment released by his office.
An Allstate Floridian
spokesman said Friday that
the company had not decided
its next course of action.
Company officials have
said in the past that the rate
increases were necessary in
light of the threat of hurri-
canes hitting the state while
the company is still reeling
from paying claims in last
year's four storms.
The company has said its
reinsurance rates - essential-
ly insurance for the company
against having to pay large
claims - spiked after it paid
about $2 billion in claims after
Hurricanes Charley, Frances,
Ivan and Jeanne hit Florida
last year.


DeLay asks that indictments be set aside


Prosecutor

accused of

misconduct
By SUZANNE GAMBOA
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Former
House Majority Leader Tom
DeLay's legal team asked a
court Friday to throw out his
indictment, arguing that a Texas
district attorney "attempted to
browbeat and coerce" grand
jurors into filing criminal
charges.
Prosecutor Ronnie Earle
"and his staff engaged in an
extraordinarily irregular and
desperate attempt to contrive a
viable charge and get a substi-
tute indictment of Tom Delay
before the expiration of the
statute of limitations," DeLay's
attorney Dick DeGuerin said in
a court filing alleging prosecu-
torial misconduct.
"These' claims have no
merit," Earle said in a state-
ment. "Because of the laws pro-
tecting grand jury secrecy, no
other comments can be made.
The investigation is continu-
ing."
DeGuerin alleged that Earle
unlawfully participated in grand
jury deliberations when he went
to a second grand jury last week
to seek a second indictment
against the Texas Republican.
He also said Earle illegally dis-
cussed grand jury information
and encouraged others to do the
same.
DeGuerin alleged that Earle


turned to the coercion tactics to
get the second grand jury to
change its decision not to indict
DeLay so there would be no
public record of a rejection.
DeGuerin said the indictment
forced DeLay to step down
from his job as majority leader.
the No. 2 position in the House,
for a crime that did not exist in.
Texas law.
DeLay was indicted Sept. 28
on a charge of conspiracy as the
grand jury's term was'expiring.
But questions were raised about
whether the law on which the
indictment was based was in
effect at the time of the alleged
conspiracy.
Earle went to a second grand
jury still in session, but that
grand jury declined to indict.
On Monday, a third grand jury
indicted DeLay on money laun-
dering charges, which carry a
punishment of five years to up
to life in prison.
The indictments against
DeLay triggered a House
Republican rule that forced him
to step aside - at least tem-
porarily - from his post as
majority leader.
Both indictments focused on
an alleged 'scheme to move
money around to conceal the
use of corporate contributions
to support Texas Republican
candidates. Texas law prohibits
corporate donations to support
or oppose state candidates -
allowing the -money to be used
only for administrative expens-
es.

proceedings of the grand jury
that returned a "no bill" in the
DeLay case told The Associated
Press that Earle tried to per-
suade the grand jurors that
DeLay tacitly approved the
scheme and that the prosecutor
became angry when they decid-
ed against an indictment. The
people familiar with the pro-
ceeding insisted on anonymity
because of grand jury secrecy.
DeGuerin also alleges that
Earle "unlawfully incited"
William Gibson, the foreman of
the grand jury that indicted
DeLay on conspiracy, to talk
publicly, on the record, to the
media to bias the public and sit-
ting grand jurors.
I He alleged Earle discussed
ongoing proceedings with some
members of that same grand
jury to find out whether they
would have returned the con-
spiracy, indictment if they knew
it "had no basis in law."
It is against the law to discuss
what goes on inside a grand
jury.
Gibson said Friday that Earle
did call him but that he only


advised him on what he could
and could not discuss publicly.
He said Earle never asked him
about the conspiracy indict-
ment.
"He didn't tell us what he
was going to do. The only thing
his department told me was,
'Mr. Gibson, we are going to
present this matter to a new
grand jury."'
DeGuerin also alleges Earle
told the third grand jury that
indicted DeLay on money laun-
dering charges what the initial
grand jury said "to persuade
them to issue a replacement
indictment."
"Such 'additional informa-
tion' is not evidence and thus its
use before a grand jury vio-
lates" Texas law, DeGuerin
said.
Earle has said that it is up to
a judge to decide whether the
conspiracy charge is applicable.
He also has said he went to
the third grand jury that
returned the money laundering
charges after finding new evi-
dence.

Outdoor drama seat sales blast off


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - "Theatre
seat sales have taken off with a
bang," Florida Outdoor Drama
seat committee chair Debbie
Rutledge said last week.
"It's just been one week since
we announced the opening of
the last two sections of
amphitheatre seats for commu-
nity sponsorship," she contin-
ued, "and-we have sold $2,600
worth of seats."'
A program designed to help
the outdoor drama meet produc-
tion costs of the coming play
"FLORIDA!," the seat sponsor-
ships also give individuals,
organizations and business
owners an opportunity to honor
loved ones, local groups or their
businesses. Golden, Circle
($2,00); Steward ($1,000); and
Prairie Pioneer ($500) seats
each receive special benefits.
On, each seat there will be a
name plate engraved with the
donor's name and one honored.
"Seat sponsors also receive


some complimentary play tick-
ets, invitations to special cele-
brations and recognition in our
annual programs," Rutledge
said. "There is also an extra
incentive for seat sponsors this
year.
"We will have a drawing at
our annual donor recognition
dinner in November for an 18-
foot pontoon boat, motor and
trailer worth $14,000 from
Performance Sales and Service.
New Golden Circle seat spon-
sors will receive 10 ($100) tick-
ets for the drawing. Steward
sponsors will receive five tick-
ets and Pioneer sponsors will
receive three tickets," Rutledge
said.
Tickets for the drawing alone
also will be available to the
public and will be sold at the
outdoor drama office in Lake
Placid and at local business
locations.

tact the office at 465-3994 or

LORIDA - The South
Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) reports that
members of the public wishing
to camp at the public use area
adjacent to the S65C navigation
locks off of U.S. 98 near
Lorida, will soon be required to
get a free special use permit. In
the past, no permit was
required.
In order to give more people
an opportunity to enjoy this
popular spot in .the future,
campers will be limited to a
maximum of five consecutive
days and a limit of 30 days per
year. Previously, there was no
limit to the number of days,
consecutive or otherwise, that
people could camp in this area.
These new rules will go into
effect as soon as signs are post-
ed and will be enforced by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
To obtain your free special
use permit to camp at the S-65C
Locks Campground, please

is a call to reconnect family
members who have split over
the pregnancy.
On Father's Day 2003, Safe
Haven took a call from a moth-
er needing directions to the fire
station. Safe Haven called ,he
station to let fire crews know
the mother was coming.
Once a child is at a legal
location, officials can call in an
adoption agency to have the
child legally placed, Silverio
said.
In the Father's Day case, the
mother called back two days
later with letters for .the adop-

it grew up.
Silverio also got another

Florida room, which had a door
on the front side.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports said that Octave walked
around the front of the car, and
started unlocking her door.
As Kommer prepared to
leave, she reportedly put the car
in drive instead of reverse and
accelerated, sending the car into
Octave and through the house.
The car went through the parti-
tion wall of the Florida room
and into the rear concrete block
wall at the back of the former
carport, into the laundry room.
FHP said the house received
$15,000 in damage; the car,
$2,000.
Highlands County
Emergency Medical Services
transported Octave to Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center in Sebring, but the FHP
report said she received injuries
that later proved fatal.
Kommer, wearing a seat belt,
was uninjured. Charges are
pending completion of the traf-
'fic homicide investigation, FHP
reports said. Reports said alco-
hol was not a factor. :

who works at Ridge Area Arc,

anonymous mother in a televi-
sion public service announce-
ment, making a choice between
leaving an infant in an alleyway
or handing the child'over to a
nurse and firefighter.
When intent is clear - giv-

SEBRING - Highlands
County faces difficult chal-
lenges as a result of the failure
to pass a half-cent increase to
the sales tax last spring, super-
intendent Wally Cox said.
Cox was philosophical, but
regretftil as he briefed the
District School Advisory
Council on the school district's
overall financial situation
Tuesday night.
"I spent a lot of personal time
making presentations. It's clear
we didn't convince people to go
to the polls. We had predicted a
low voter turn-out, but we were
hoping parents and .employees
would vote.
"If you had told me before
the election that there would be

Reports state that a man %\as tendingng in the center of the north-

The unknown man was standing in the path of a 1988 Plymouth

accident.
"We understand she pan-
icked," he said.
She was turned looking the
other way when she let off the
brake, he said. Reportedly, she
realized her mistake, got
spooked and hit the accelerator
instead of the brake pedal.
"She can't believe this has
happened o' her," Haas said.
The whole church is in a state
of shock, he added.
Octave's son, Gilbert, 45,
said she was a generous, caring,
patient and wise woman who
kept busy, believed in Jesus,
read the Bible, and would dis-
cuss daily news with him.-
\\heride was studying in -New:
York;-she would warn him not
to overdo his course schedule.


She was a retired home
health aide, he said, who would
play cards with him and pray
for him.
He said she also prayed for
anyone in hospitals, all over.
"I know she's in heaven," he
said.
He and his *mother had
attended the church since
March or April 2005, shortly
after arriving in February 2005.
His mother is originally from
St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
Kommer had attended the
church for at least the last four
Sor five years, Haas said.

4,600 votes against it (the actu-
al number of people who voted
no), with 18,000 parents and
2,000 employees, I still would
have thought we would win."
In fact, there were only 2,700
votes in favor of the tax
increase. This means only 7,500
voters out of 62,000 registered
countywide, participated in the
election.
One of the problems, Cox
said, was that the district had
tried to raise money before
there was a crisis, "but there has
to be a crisis to get people to the
polls.".
While' the- .school board is
looking into impact fees to help
off-set the tost of future con-
struction, needed as a result of
population growth, he added,
the amodunt those fees raise will
be only a "Band-Aid." The dis-
trict's, s five-year capital
improvement plan will have to
be rewritten.
The district needs to raise at
least $157 million during the
next 20 years, if it has any hope
of keeping up with an expand-
ing student population, and the
mandates of the class size
amendment. It is already $56
million behind.
Impact fees have another


draw back when considered as a
funding source, Cox said. They
can only be used to build class-
rooms based on future needs.
They cannot be used for present
ones, or to satisfy class size
amendment mandates. This
means they cannot be used to
replace any of the 42 portables
that now dot county campuses.
There are so many portables, in,
fact, that some schools have
now run out of room.
The school board had been
working to lower class sizes for
some time, and the district is in
better shape than many other
counties as a result. But an
unexpected growth spurt and
the class size amendment have
created new pressure.
There are currently 12,300
students enrolled, in Highlands
public schools, Cox said. Last
year, 400 new students entered
the system, and this year the
estimate is for 300 to 350. That
is the equivalent of a new ele-.
mentary school a year.
An addition to Lake Placid
Elementary School had to cut
back to just 12 classrooms, and
a new elementary school cur-
rently under planning will have
all portable classrooms because
there isn't enough money for


UNDERSHERIFF
Continued from 1A
more than, 200 sheriff's employees gathered to
get final copies of the sheriff's Strategic
Operations Plan.
Lewis has been married 23 years, and has a son
at the University of Florida. He and his wife
owned a vacation house in Lake Placid for about
five years. Prior to that, he often worked the
annual 12 Hours of Sebring race in the rowdy
1980s as an out-of-county sworn deputy. It was a
challenge working with the crowd, Lewis said.
Working with FDLE in Tallahassee was fine
except for being 4 1/2 hours from Sarasota.
Besides, he missed the active operations side of
law enforcement.
"This fits perfectly for me," he said of
Benton's office. "It will be a great opportunity to
see what she's doing for that agency."
Roles
Benton said she plans to stay as vision leader
andplanner, with some direct involvement in cri-
'sis:'si:tuations . The undersheriff will oversee
implementation. Theyshould mix well, she said,
because he brings a broad breadth of experience


permanent ones.
It is possible the district
might have to consider double
sessions at some time in the
future.
Cox has no doubt the subject
of the sales tax will have to be
brought back to the table, but he
says timing is everything. He
will also develop a different
approach. "The key to success
is our employees and parents,"
he said. "I don't want to try
again without their support."
He added that local business
leaders have said they would
take a more active role the next
time; a move that Cox wel-
comed.
DSAC was briefed because it
is made up of representatives
from every school, a represen-
tative from the teacher's union,
three school administrators, one
from each level, a representa-
five from the district staff and
the school board (who is ex-
officio), and student representa-
tives from each of the high
schools.
There are also 12 discre-
tionary members.
The council's stated goals are
to foster opportunities for the
school advisory councils to
communicate with each other.


and connections to state agencies.
Also, Sarasota County was where Highlands
County is now about 10-15 years ago. It will help
save her office from the pitfalls that come from
adjusting to fast-paced growth.
Long-range plan
After handing out the Strategic Operations
Plan on Wednesday, Benton is now turning her
attention to forming a three-year strategic' plan,
and perhaps having that ready by March 2006.
Benton said that would include building, infra-
structure and staffing needs. The operations plan
itself won't be in place until October 2006.
"We knew we needed a base,, a starting point,"
Benton said.
She plans to examine what buildings, equip-
ment, towers and roads that the sheriff's office
could use to fight crime, such as substations in
the north or south ends of the county.
"We can't help the county plan if we don't
have our act together," she said.
In terms of personnel, the sheriff has 1.2
deputies per 1,000, compared to a state average
of 2.5 per 1,000, or local municipal averages of
as many as seven. She wants to reach a minimum
goal of 2 per 1,000, but will have to do it incre-'
mentally, she said.

TOFF N9T

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Getting into

the swing of it
This week's Tuffin' It
assignment was the kind that
make the difficult or dirty jobs
worth it. I got to play golf with
golf professional Tom
McClurg at the Sebring
Municipal Golf Course.
Actually it was the first time
I'd ever been to a golf course,
let alone held a golf club. It
turns out I may have some nat-
ural talent, I managed to hit
the ball squarely a couple of
times.
I have to admit, after whiff- .
ing over the ball, and digging
a ditch under the ball, it was a
real thrill when I got it air-
borne.
Of course, I mostly hit
grounders, which if we'd been
playing baseball, would have
ended in double plays. And I
had dug a foot-long divot by
the time we were done.
But I'd had just enough suc-
cess that I found myself think-
ing I could get into this.
Part of the pleasure was the
sound the ball and the club
made when they came cleanly
together. It's sort of between
the ting of an aluminum bat
and the thwack of a Louisville
slugger. It's a good, sharp
sound.
Part of the frustration was
how little I got to hear it.
Here's where the impor-
tance of being a good golf pro
comes into play.
McClurg was consistently
upbeat. With every attempt he

McClurg lproes going to work




McClurg loves going to work


25 years and still

swinging away
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Being a golf professional
involves a lot more than having a sweet
swing.
In fact, most golf pros need advanced
business skills. That is because they are typ-
ically responsible for a course's pro shop,
the hiring and supervision of employees, as
well as managing tournaments. Golf pros
are expected to increase the bottom line.
The Professional Golf Association has a
Professional Golf Management program
which is offered at 16 colleges, including
Florida State University.
Tom McClurg has been a golf pro for 25
years, and is one of two PGA A-1 rated pros
in the area. He has worked in the field so
long there's nothing he hasn't done.
Originally from Jacksonville, he became
a golf pro almost by accident. He started out
playing baseball at a young age, but by the
time he got to college he discovered he was-
n't going to make the cut.
He'd begun to swing a club by that time,
and was having success, so he switched over
to golf.
He played well enough that'he considered
joining the PGA tour, but he was shooting
75s when others were hitting 65s, so he
adapted his future plans.
Right out of college he went into retail.
But wearing a coat and tie and always being
indoors wasn't satisfying, so he went to
work for a golf course as a golf pro instead.
He had to work his way up. He has spent
hours picking up balls on golf ranges, and
bringing carts dut and putting them back.
Now he manages the Sebring Municipal
Golf Course. He handles the business end,
while Jim Higgins, its superintendent, keeps
the course trim and playable. There is a
$500,000 budget for its upkeep.
The city, McClurg reports, is preparing to
invest in updating the course and its build-


The follow through is essential to a successful
golf swing. Wait until the follow through has
reached the shoulder before looking up to
sight the ball's flight. Tom McClurg says
there are three steps to golf: Contact, air-
borne, and direction. To achieve those steps a
golfer needs to think grip, stance, alignment,
posture and ball position.

ings, to make it a premier golf site.
McClurg is already proud of the golf
course. Generally, municipal courses have a
bad reputation, he said. Often they are under
funded and in poor condition.
At Sebring, however, there are "wall to
wall" cart paths, decent drainage, and a ded-
icated staff, so the fairways and greens stay
in pretty good shape, no matter the weather.
"It's a good, fun course to play," he said.
In season, the course keeps busy - seeing
about 250 golfers a day. Even in the heat of
summer, with afternoon thunderstorms, as
many as 75 people play a day.
McClurg loves every aspect of his job, but
teaching young people i- his passion. He has

Tom McClurg, the golf professional at the Sebring Municipal Golf Course,
demonstrates a proper golf swing. The hands should form a triangle with the
shoulders, while the feet are plantedin line with the shoulders. Bend the knees
and the waist slightly. Sight the shot, then keep the head down and still.

KATARA SIMMONS/NEWS-SUN
Essie's Boutique owner Essie Allen, of Sebring, arranges clothes on a rack Friday afternoon. The bou-
tique specializes in hats, shoes, casual wear, church attire and more. Essie's Boutique is at 2819 State
Road 17, Sebring.


Essie Allen fulfills her dream


of owning a fashion shop


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Essie Allen
had-a dream for many years to
open a fashion shop.
While working as a certified
nursing assistant in homes and
later working at Good Shepherd
Hospice, "I prayed for the
desire of my heart," Allen said.
"I even sold some African wear
out of my car. I created a small
nest egg in order to start my
fashion shop."
Allen is a native of Sebring
and attended Sebring High
School. She married Walter Lee
Allen, who works at Avon
Elementary School.
"He always supported my
dream, even when we were not
financially able. We've been
married 30 years and have two
kids and three grandkids, one of

found something positive to
say, even if the only positive
thing he could find to say was,
you only missed that one by
inches.
Normally, McClurg would
have started me out by putting.
A golf stroke is a golf stroke,
he said, so the basics apply to
every swing.
However, because I was
playing in order to write a col-
umn, which is best if there's
action, we skipped that lesson
and went straight to hitting
balls off of tees with a seven
iron.
A good golf stroke is hard to
put into words. To me, it's the
difference between a push-up
when you let your back sway,
and one where you keep it
straight.
The first feels sloppy and
loose, while the latter feels
strong and connected -


which was just inducted into the
honor society. I'm proud of my
family and we are close," Allen
said.
Allen's first new venture is
called Essie's Boutique.
Actually, she opened last year
on the downtown Sebring'
Circle, but when the hurricane
hit last year, she had to reopen
in a new location at 2819 State
Road 17 North.
Allen carries dresses and
suits with matching hats, shoes,
and purses, even earrings. She
carries casual clothes, but spe-
cializes in church attire. Some
of the brands are Champagne
Italy, WHY New York, Aussie
Autinhe Originals,- and She's
Line New York. Her shoes are
by Glamour Original.
"I can outfit you from $129


instead of just moving your
shoulders, your whole body
moves up and down on a-
plane. In the same way a golf
stroke should be all of a piece,
a smooth motion involving the
entire body in balance (and
yes, I'm aware that my talking
about what makes a good golf
swing is like Kojak, a mid
1970s television detective,
telling Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton how to
make an arrest).
Still, I learned golf is like a
door with multiple locks, you
have to use several keys to
open it.
One key is to relax; if you
tense up you're going to mess
up.
For example, my best shot
of the day, a lovely arcing
parabola of a hit, which had
distance and went straight, was
the one time I didn't think but
just swung. The irony is, the
harder you try, the harder
you'll fall. In other words, grip
the club. Don't grip the club
and let the top hand do the


up. I especially cater to ladies'
dress-up styles, and dresses for
weddings or for the mother of
the bride," Allen said. "My
clients are anywhere from their
20s to a 'seasoned age.' We
have fashions in beautiful pas-
tels, and also lively bright col-
ors to choose from. Fall fash-
* ions are coming in and they are
really exciting. They have an
elegant, exclusive look. I also
have. a special markdown rack
to help satisfy anyone who's
cost conscious, but still yearns
for that special-occasion look."
Essie's Boutique is at 2819
State Road 17 North (past the
Seventh-day Adventist Church,
in the plaza strip).' Hours are
from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Monday through Saturday. For

controlling.
The second key is to keep
your head still. I had a tenden-
cy to roll my head with the
swing of the club. Wait for the
follow through before you look
up.
The third key is to have a
good sense of humor, because
perfection is an illusion. Learn
to control'your misses,
McClurg advised, and always
focus on the next shot, not the
last.
Now I have to admit, before
this assignment, I didn't think
much about golf. But what do
you know, Im now a little bit
hooked, so no matter how you
slice it, I see golf lessons in my
future. Thanks Tom.

Same old song ... don't


believe every
"Before you invest, investigate" was
the slogan of the National Better
Business Bureau back in 1929. The
same concept applies today, 76 years
later. Here are some vintage financial
observations that can help you avoid
becoming a victim of financial fraud. k
Big -returns - It is always easy for .
investment promoters to boast that an T:*
investment will provide higher than CON
average dividends or market profits. CON
However, the heavy risks associated OUTi
with these abnormal returns are not
always revealed. Promises of high M
returns may be "the chief talking points Math
of financial charlatans."
Prominent names - Using the name
of successful or note-worthy people to lure vic-
tims is an old ploy. However, the names of these
people and their endorsements may be without
authorization or knowledge. As a prudent
investors you should investigate the merits of the
investment and make decisions based on sound
financial analysis.
The ground floor - Being the first to get in on
an amazing money making opportunity may be
equivalent to the same opportunity the "spider
extended to the fly."
Inside information - We all know what hap-
pened to Martha Stewart after she was accused of
acting on insider information. Insider tips are
often false, misleading or downright illegal.
Don't rely on information you gleaned at the
office water cooler or from a broker who claims
to have the inside scoop. The only scoop may be
the one in your pocket as a swindler reaches in
for your money.
The irresponsible guarantee - Promises that
profits will be made, dividends paid or that the
company will buy back your investment if you
are unhappy mean nothing unless they are in
writing. Even if the promises are in writing they
may be false or the company won't be able to ful-
fill its promises and guarantees.


McCLURG
Continued from 13A
already coached 25 students to
college scholarships, and creat-
ed the Sertoma Junior Golf
Tour.
One of his biggest thrills was
being a caddy for a former stu-
dent who qualified for a chance
at the 1997 U.S. Open. The
young man missed the cut by
only two 'strokes. But by that
point, McClurg was so worn
out from having lugged the
heavy bag of clubs for 12 hours
a day, he wa8 almost relieved
when his student didn't make it.
While he didn't mention it,
McClurg was a finalist for the
Judge Clifton M. Kelly
Champion for Children Award
in 2004, recognized for his


hing you hear
Telephone canvas - Back in the
1920s crooks used the telephone to
promote bad investments. Today is no
different. However, the problem
extends to the Web and e-mails. While
Ac- the telephone remains a tool for legiti-
mate businesses, it also IS used by
.,. , swindlers.
'. . False sense of security - Usually
associated with real estate deals when
SUMER an investor is told, this is "the safest
REACH investment on earth." Hucksters
attempt to unload property upon peo-
ark ple who want to make an investment
hosian and not a speculation. Fabulous profits
- are promised from increased values or
earnings when the property is devel-
oped. This scheme can be very tempting, particu-
larly in Florida where prices seem to go up and
up. However, caution is the red flag, even when
making a "sure bet" real estate investment.
In closing, here is a passage from author
George Husser writing in a 1929 booklet titled
"Crooked Financial Schemes Exposed."
Interestingly, I preach the same message today in
my consumer awareness columns.
"Most of the newest fraudulent enterprises are
revivals of those which have long made forays
into the field of legitimate business. They repre-
sent the same old wolf, disguised as a lamb a lit-
tle more effectively than ever in our complex
economic world. A fundamental characteristic of
the faker is his opportunism. Nothing of public
interest escapes him as a possible means of'
squeezing money from gullible persons."

work with young golfers.
It is easy to see how he
became such a successful
coach. He is relentlessly upbeat
when teaching. Golf can be a
game of frustrations, he says, so
it's critical to help people enjoy
it. He tries to end every lesson
at a point when the student has
had a good swing. Without.that
hope of improvement, many
people would give up.
In fact, there is only one neg-
ative to being a golf pro, he
said.'When the holidays come,
that's when you work the hard-
est, because that's when the
most people play golf.
On the other hand, he quick-
ly added, the positive side is
that when he's off everyone else
is working, so he can play for
fun on uncrowded courses.
He enjoys the variety of fiis


work. There are no nine to five
days of dull routine; there is
always something different to
do. One lesson he'll teach a 6
year old, the next lesson will be
someone who is 90.
"How many people," he
asks, "have been in business for
25 years, and still enjoy what
they do?"

Other viewpoints

The numbers themselves are disconcerting. At a time
when overall enrollment continues to� surge, the actual
number of African-American students this fall declined
1.6 percent. As a portion of overall enrollment, the num-
ber of blacks dropped 4.6 percent. More ominously, the
number of incoming black freshmen dropped 9.5 per-
cent.
The decreases do correlate somewhat with Gov. Jeb
Bush's One Florida (which eliminated affirmative action
plans in 2000). But those who are working within the
university system to create diverse campuses know that
the challenges transcend One Florida.
At the University of Florida, president Bernie Machen
... tells the truth about the state's costly and highly popu-
lar merit scholarship program known as Bright Futures:
"Bright Futures is not skewed toward people who need
the help. The reality is that when the question is raised
about making Bright Futures need-based, they don't
want that discussion to occur."
In fact, too many legitimate discussions are being sti-
fled these days by lawmakers looking for easy answers
or avoiding tough decisions. For example, the U.S.
Supreme Court has granted some leeway to consider .race
in university admissions, but policy-makers aren't likely
to consider any change to One Florida so long as Bush is
in office. The cost of Bright Futures is escalating so fast
it is robbing from need-based aid and classroom spend-
ing, but'lawmakers aren't likely to consider any modifi-
cation so long as its chief advocate, Sen. Ken Pruitt,
holds positions of influence.
These numbers are hard to ignore, though. Board of
Governors chairwoman Carolyn Roberts has called on
university presidents to review their recruitment policies,
and an honest debate will put all issues on the table.

An editorial excerpt from the St. Petersburg Times.

The revisions to the 32-year-old Endangered Species
Act approved by the House of Representatives by a 229
to 193 vote last week were a sellout of the very creatures
the laiv is supposed to protect.
If the Senate were to go along with this bill, it would
reverse three decades of progressive actions that have
restored American bald eagles and condors; and Florida
panthers, manatees and Key deer, to name just a few.
The most successful tool for rescuing and restoring
healthy populations of endangered species is to preserve
their habitat. Yet the House bill would eliminate the cut-
rent system of designating critical habitat that is deter-
mined to be crucial to an animal species' survival.
The House bill also takes aim at science. Currently, the
Act's rules call for using "the best available science" and
relying. on scientists to determine these criteria when
deciding if a species is endangered and how to protect it.
The House voted instead to give the secretary of the
Interior Department, a political appointee, the power to
define what scientific evidence can or can't be used to
determine species protection.
Fortunately, there is precedent for the Senate to follow
if it is to save the Act from this irresponsible revision. In
1978, in reaction to a Supreme Court decision that
stopped construction of a dam to protect the snail darter,
an endangered fish, the House passed a bill that virtually
crippled the Endangered Species Act. The Senate,
acknowledging that some complaints were valid, made
wise revisions to the law but spumed the House's
extreme measures. The Senate must again come to the
rescue of the Act, and the many creatures that the law can
save.

An editorial excerpt from The Miami Herald.

The good news is that the Florida Supreme Court last
week extended by nine months a deadline allowing con-
victed felons to request DNA testing that might prove
their innocence.
The better news would be for the deadline to be elim-
inated altogether.
The effect of last week's extension - the third exten-
sion that justices allowed - is to give them time to con-
sider a request to get rid of a deadline that itself flies in
the face of justice.
Thanks to the improved quality of DNA testing, sever-
al Florida cases during the past few years have illustrat-
ed that our criminal justice isn't foolproof. Sadly, inno-
cent people are occasionally convicted of crimes that
they didn't commit.
Undoubtedly, that's the exception rather than the rule.
But even one exception is an assault on justice. This is
why scientific testing, when DNA evidence is available,
should never be ruled out, and why any deadline runs
contrary to the interest of justice.
The political reality, however, is that the rights of con-
victed inmates are low priorities for most lawmakers and
citizens. ...
But DNA evidence, when available, is virtually incon-
trovertible. Putting a deadline on justice runs counter to
the concept of justice itself.
In statements earlier this year, President Bush and
Gov. Jeb Bush have supported the expanded use of DNA
evidence. Now it's time for Florida lawmakers to act.
The new deadline is July 1. While justices now have
time to consider a request to eliminate the deadline, law-
makers during their 2006 session have a chance to legis-
late it away.
That's exactly what they should do. As a Florida Bar


committee wrote, "there should be no limitation on inno-
cence."

The joy of watching three new births


I really thought
about whether or not LAURA'
to write this particu- L
lar column. It's not Laura
particularly contro- -
versial, or full of one of my
occasional rants about things I
see wrong on this planet.
But it does deal with religion.
The pint-sized philosopher
Linus Van Pelt once said that
there are three things that one
shouldn't discuss: religion, pol-
itics, or the Great Pumpkin.
Well, we've discussed poli-
tics in this space before. Today
we're going to venture in the
field of religion.
It was after Wednesday night
Bible study. A lot of people had
left already. In fact, Don and I
had gathered up our things and
were headed out the door.
Outside there was a small group
of women gathered. Among
them was a teenage girl weep-
ing.
I went to see if everything
was OK. It was. The teenage
girl wanted to be baptized. She

Government

can't care for all
Editor:
My radical idea -
Now, the way we've become
conditioned to think about nat-
ural and unnatural disasters in
this country is that the federal
government takes care of
everything.
There are several problems
with this:
It is unconstitutional. I'm
sorry, but there is just no way to
justify coercive wealth trans-
fers by Washington. I know we
do them all the time. I know we
do them for admittedly rotten
reasons and causes. And I know
it will be extremely unpopular
to suggest we should suddenly
stop this misguided practice
when a seemingly noble cause
arises.
But I would be remiss in not
pointing this out. It's not a tech-
nicality. It's part of the very
essence of what defines the
American experiment in free-
dom. We must never forget that
the federal government has
strictly limited powers. If we
forget it, all our liberty is lost.
We will have no one else to
blame but ourselves for allow-
ing this to happen.
That's really the heart of the
problem. The American' people
and the leaders of both major
parties have completely lost
sight of the constitutionally
limited powers and scope of the
federal government. We may
soon go beyond the point of no
return.
If it's the right thing to do for
the federal government to pay
people who have lost their
homes due to the Hurricane
Katrina damage, why isn't it
right to compensate the lone
homeowner who was the vic-
tim of a fire in, say, Dubuque,
Iowa? That would probably be
an unpopular measure. At least
I hope so.
People could discern that
would be a bad idea. Yet,
because of the symbolism and
the massive scale of the disas-
ter in the Gulf Coast, paying for
losses there is considered a
good idea.
Why would it be a bad idea?
Because it would discourage
personal responsibility. Aren't
we doing that as well on a mas-
sive scale when we bail out
entire regions hit by disaster?
Why should victims of large
national disasters be compen-
sated, but those anonymous
victims of smaller, everyday
tragedies go uncompensated?
Of course, some in our soci-
ety might suggest everyone be
eligible for such compensation.
There are always elements in
our society who want to move
America further down the road
of socialism - a system where

LOOK ple. Several of us
assured her it would
Ware be OK. She spoke
__ with our preacher and
Chris, the guy that runs our
youth group. Then she and her
older sister and another woman
went to get ready.
Now I have to digress a little
and try to explain a couple of
things to people not familiar
with things like baptisms. We
do have clothes for people to
change into so they won't get
the stuff they're dressed in wet.
Also, baptism is important. It
is the time when a person is
born again, a time when they
turn their back decisively on
Satan and sin and decide for
Christ. A tinde when their sins
are washed away, and they
come out of the darkness and
into the, light. It is a special
time.
Those of us who were were
still there sat in the auditorium.
A few minutes later the young
lady and Chris came into the
baptistery. When she was bap-


government alone decides who
gets what.
Ultimately, it means none of
us own anything. Our property
is not our own. Government
controls it all and decides how
much, if any, you are allowed to
keep, while redistributing the
rest as it sees fit.
And there's another conse-
quence as well. When govern-
ment subsidizes disaster, you
get more of it. That's true of
whatever government pays for
- whether it's welfare or bad
education. Think about it.
Every time a hurricane strikes,
a community is hit by flooding
or a brush fire tears into a town,
the federal government is
Johnny-on-the-spot, checkbook
in hand, making sure everyone
is made whole.
You see, whatever the gov-
ernment pays for - whether
it's subsidizing some bum to sit
around the house not working,
or the worst educational system
this side of a public jail, or a
backward and inefficient sys-
tem of mail delivery, or unwed.
motherhood, or junk science -
you get more of it. You get what
you subsidize.
"But," you say, "you don't
mean to tell me that we're get-
ting more natural disasters
because the government is com-


tized, you could feel the joy. We
sang a song together while we
waited for the young lady to get
into her dry clothes. When she
came into the auditorium, we
all lined up to hug her and
express our happiness in her
conversion.
While this was going on, our
preacher Bryan was called out
of the auditorium by his wife.
While he was gone, we all
joined in a prayer for our new
sister in Christ. When we were
done, our preacher, who had
returned spoke up. "I hate to
interrupt the celebration," he
said, "but could we baptize two
more?" It turned out that two
other young ladies had
expressed a desire to be bap-
tized.
Well, what do you think we
did? You wouldn't think we'd
say no to that, would you?
We smiled and sat down
again and waited for the bap-
tism of these' two beautiful
girls. While we waited we sang.
When Bryan baptized each girl
I could not help smiling.


pensating people for tMTir loss-
es?"
No, that's not what I'm say-
ing. But because the govern-
ment so often picks up the tab
after a disaster these days, peo-
ple are less likely to prepare
themselves - with insurance,
by building on safe ground, by
being adequately supplied for
recovery. In other words, the
government, once again, is sub-
sidizing dependency and sloth-
fulness and failing to encourage
personal responsibility and pre-
paredness.
Another problem with gov-
ernment hand outs is that when
you accept them, you also
accept government control over
your life.
Americans seem unable or
unwilling to accept risks in their
lives anymore. They want the
government to turn their lives.
into risk-free zones. If anything
bad happens to anyone, it's up
to the government to take care
of the problem and make the
victim whole - whether it's a
tobacco smoker who claims he
just didn't know the risks or
someone lobbying for a new
government health-care pro-
gram.
Government is not Santa
Claus. Government is govern-
ment. It has clearly delineated


As far as I know, no one left
the building until they had a
chance to hug these new sisters
in Christ and shared in another
prayer of thanks to God. Yes,
we were at the building a lot
longer than any of us had
planned, but I don't think any of
us felt it was not worth it.
Maybe you don't understand
why this means so much to me
and people like me. I'm not sure
my few words in this column
can properly explain it. All I can
say is these three girls epito-
mize the mission of the church
- "to seek and save that which
is lost." Any time light triumphs
over darkness, it is a time of
rejoicing.
Anyway, if you are offended
by this week's column, don't
worry - it probably won't be
the last time. Maybe I'll tackle
the Great Pumpkin later.

powers and responsibilities -
and clearly delineated areas of
non-responsibility.
Government is not supposed
to make decisions from the
heart. It is supposed to make
decisions based on the will of
the people - but only under the
authority and scope of the
Constitution.
There is nothing in the U.S.
Constitution that Would remote-
ly authorize such a wealth
transfer. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
Zilch. '
So what's my radical idea?
How do we get around this
problem and still help the des-
perate people in the Gulf Coast
and future victims of inevitable
natural and unnatural disasters?
I think Davy Crockett had
the right idea.
In his famous speech, "Not
Yours To Give," he eloquently
explained to his fellow con-
gressmen, intent on transferring
federal funds to a needy widow,
why it was not within their
scope of responsibility and
authority to do so. He offered,
instead, real compassion - his
own money.
That's the way it is supposed
to work.

Food Stamp Program should not be diminished


We need each other


Hurricane Katrina has
taught u� two things. First,
a great number of people uO
in this country have little D
to no resources - and Debr
they are concentrated in
cities. This is a reality far too famil-
iar to those of us working In low-
income neighborhoods. Second, that
in sharp contrast to FEMA, the
Disaster Food Stamp Program by
USDA works.
As of mid-September, nearly
30,000 families had registered as
Katrina evacuees in Florida and
more than 5,000 evacuee children
were enrolled in Florida schools.
USDA quickly implemented
"enhanced" food stamp policies that
provided food stamp eligibility for
all of these families.
So why is Congress still consider-
ing cutting funds to such an effective
federal program that delivers a rapid
and comprehensive response? And,
to make matters worse, why are
members of Congress continuing to
pursue $70 billion worth of tax cuts?
Cutting taxes for those with "sur-
plus" resources, though, has been
commonplace during the Bush
Administration. In 2002, President
Bush signed a $43 billion package
of business tax breaks. A 2003 divi-
dend tax break., alone cost $125 bil-
lion. Corporate tax cuts in 2004 cost
$210 billion (assuming the tax cuts
won't actually expire over the next,
10 years).
During those same years,
President Bush proposed a $390
million cut to the Army Corps of
Engineers budget (2002) and anoth-
er half billion dollars in 2003. These
cuts included reducing the Southeast
Louisiana Flood Control Project's
budget by about two-thirds. In 2004,
another $400 million were cut from
the Corps' budget, despite needing
$27 million to upgrade hurricane
protection around Lake


IN
a


Pontchartrain, something
for which Bush proposed
ION $3.9 million.
-. Are these priorities 'not
Susie as bent as a billboard in a
-- hurricane? We have been
here before and look how that's
turned out. The current move to cut
the Food Stamp Program budget
runs along the same jet stream; it
will only help to offset the newest
set of proffered tax cuts, which
reside in the tax reconciliation pro-
posal. It is time to forsake the so-
called need to reconcile the budget
off entitlement and other public pro-
grams that serve the nation, so the
tax breaks can keep coming for a
few of the elite.
Two of Florida's largest cities,
Jacksonville and Miami, were fea-
tured in a recent report by the Food
Research and Action Center on the
under-usage of food stamps in 25
urban areas of the country. The
report revealed critically low food-
stamp-participation rates in both
communities, leading to
Jacksonville's fourth-worst ranking
among the 25 cities for local access.
Only 43 percent of Jacksonville's
citizens, projected to be eligible for
food stamps, actually received them
in 2003. Multiplying the value of
those lost benefits by each of the
nearly 60,000 people "getting by" in
Jacksonville without them led to an
even larger loss for the community
as a whole. The estimated dollar
value of the federal food-assistance
for Jacksonville that remained in
Washington "unclaimed" exceeded
$40 million in 2003.
Ellen Vollinger of the Food
Research and Action Center-points
out, "'Under-participation in the
Food Stamp Program adversely
affects not only low-income people
who are missing out on benefits, but
also local communities. Research
shows that each dollar in federal


benefits generates nearly twice that
in economic activity."
Jacksonville and Miami have
higher poverty rates than the
nation's average (12.7 percent), 14
percent and 28 percent respectively.
Statistics among those 18 years of
age and younger are even more dra-
matic, with one in five children in
Jacksonville and as many as one in
three children in Miami living in
poverty. The combined number of
those living in these two Florida
coastal cities is 211,212 - or
enough to fill the Orange Bowl near-
ly three times over.
Only 54 percent of Florida's food-
stamp-eligible population received
this benefit in FY2003-04. That
along with our extended weather
forecast of hurricanes to come
should be enough to preclude any
thoughts of cutting such a needed
program. While we continue to work
for policies that will more adequate-
ly address the larger issue of pover-
ty in America with better paying
jobs, more comprehensive health
care and increased educational
opportunity, we must not allow our
congressional delegates to diminish
the effectiveness and strength of a
program like food stamps.
Soon our congressional delegates
from Florida, who know a hurricane
when they see one, will be asked to
decide on two budget reconciliation
proposals - one to cut entitlements
to lower- and middle-income
Americans and Tne to cut taxes for
the wealthy. Hopefully, they will
remember the past support of the
American public and the importance
of federal aid programs like food
stamps.

thing in sight, there were
people pulling on work
boots and gloves - ready-
ing themselves to help the
needy victims.
Search and rescue
teams; relief suppliers;
and, individuals - pray-
ing and giving - mobi-
lized. Nearby states
opened their arms to dis-
placed and impoverished
fellow Americans.
Complaints of help not
coming fast enough tugged
at our heartstrings. Yet,
reckless abandon to get
there without proper plan-
ning and implementation
could have brought more
grief into an already grief-
stricken area - adding
burdens instead of reliev-
ing them.
The ripple effect of
Katrina is touching all of
America.
Situations such as this
magnify our need for each
other. After losing loved


C.

ml


ones and every-
thing we take for
granted, survival is
' the operational
word. It's accom-
plished through the
/ hands and feet of
. those who leave
TIONS their own comforts
or give of their
resources to lift up
EROP the fallen. But it's
only fully realized
when the rescue is
received.
This distinctly parallels
the story of salvation in the
Bible. The cross has
always depicted an instru-
ment of torture. Yet, when
God mobilized the rescue
of lost souls after our first
parent's sinful disobedi-
ence, the cross' original
purpose was redeemed and
is now a symbol of hope.
While sin was battering
his creation, the Rescuer,
Jesus, put aside his glory
and slipped on humanity
- readying him to reach
out in our devastation to
search, rescue and restore
fallen humanity. He
revealed God the Father's
love, healed the sick and
offered hope to all -
going where he was need-
ed, welcoming the masses
and teaching them eternal
truths.
Even so, some did not
welcome him and eventu-
ally crucified him. As part
of the eternal rescue mis-
sion, the Bible says that
Jesus Christ bore our sins
and experienced separa-
tion from God the Father
so we wouldn't have to.
When he arose the third


day, sin and death were
conquered; thereby invit-
ing us to come by faith,
receive his rescue and
secure our eternal destiny.
It takes a measure of
destitution 'and courage to
receive rescue.
Think of the images of
helicopters hovering while
first responders delivered
Katrina's victims from
roof tops one at a time.
Yet, some didn't welcome
the rescuers and even shot
at them. It was amazing to
watch the news report
showing a victim sitting on
his roof. and refusing the
rescue of a passing boat.
What is it about human
nature that makes one
spurn the only means of
rescue -.be it physical or
spiritual - and seal one's
fate?
Disasters expose. how
our brief and fragile lives
need eternal protection.
Perhaps in our need for
each other, God is showing
us our need for him.
"For God so loved the
world that he gave his one
and only Son, that whoev-
er believes in him shall not
perish but have eternal
life." (John 3:16, NIV)
Maybe the name,
Katrina, will be redeemed
one day as people look
back and remember the
outpouring of love and res-
cue that followed the dev-
astation. And they will
recall how people of faith
shared that unique love of
God who alone can rescue
and redeem souls. We truly
need each other.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

An everlasting

legacy
A few months ago, I
attended two memorial serv-
ices back to back. I hoped to
give a measure of comfort.
But, I came away a recipient
as well.
In the first instance, my
friend of 17 years was
remembered. Arabelle
Enyart blessed me with her
passion for teaching every-
one the books of the Bible -
so they 'could find Scripture
passages easily. Her actions
reminded me how privileged
I had been to grow up under
teachers like herself.
She was honest about
anything that troubled her
and we'd often have long
talks. Being in her 80s, she
struggled with adjusting to
the new worship music
introduced at church. But,
she kept praying and search-
ing the Scriptures.
One day, she came to me
all aglow and said, "The
Lord has spoken to me
about the new music."
"Sing to him a new song.
He put a new song in my
mouth a hymn of praise to
our God." (Psalm 33:3a &
40: 3a)
And as Psalm 33:3 also
says, "play skillfully," and
so she did; playing piano
while our young music
director accompanied on
guitar. What a team they
made.
As others spoke about
Arabelle, I saw her anew -
anchored in her relationship
with Jesus Christ. Her faith
enabled her to maturely con-
front change; yet adjust in
loving obedience to Christ.
Her actions spoke of
strength and unity, not divi-
- sion; qualities I desire.
The next day, the memo-
rial service for the father of
my friend, Maria Baker,
gave to me more than the
family knows. -
As they honored a father,
father-in-law, grandpa and
husband, we felt drawn into
why they are who they are.
The legacy left by Julian
Valdes, who left everything
in Cuba to make a better life
for his family in the United
States, is one of faith,
integrity, loyalty, compas-
sion, wisdom and a kind
word for everyone. He knew
how to stand up for the truth
in a way that spoke to the
heart.
We hadn't been privi-
leged to share his acquain-
tance; but, as we listened,
we were moved in our
souls.
My husband, Ken, put it
succinctly when he greeted
Maria.
"Today I got to know
your father for the first
time."
How true. It was a won-
derful meeting - as if Julian
himself had pult his arm
around us and encouraged
-us. We want our Christian
walk to reflect the qualities
he exemplified.
Julian took seriously
Christ's words, "But store
up for yourselves treasures
in heaven. For where your
treasure is, there your heart
will be also." (Matthew 6:
19, 20a & 21, NIV)
His treasures consisted of
his faith in Christ and his
family. With these, he had
all he could ever hope for.
I thank these two distinct-
ly unique people for touch-
ing me so profoundly with
their gifts of an everlasting
legacy. Selah.

A treasure trove of Sears





homes found in Avon Park


* This is the second in a two-part
series about Sears homes.

By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK

hunt under way to find, iden-
tify and authenticate do-it-
yourself kit houses that were
offered for 32 years through the Sears
catalog. Avon Park has an enclave of
these mail-order dwellings and it is
likely that others are scattered through-
out the area.
From 1908 to 1940, Sears, Roebuck
& Co. sold more than 100,000 house
kits by mail, mostly to the growing
middle class. The first advertisement
appeared in the 1908 Sears catalog,
inviting customers to write in and ask
for a copy of Sears' new "Book of
Modem Homes," which featured house
plans and building materials.
Although buying a house by mail
was a novel idea to many people, the
need for affordable housing was just as
urgent in the early 20th century as it is
today. Thousands of people ordered
their "house in a box" - even though
the "box" was actually two railway
boxcars containing 30,000 pieces of the
house.
The kits included everything a home-
owner needed to assemble the house on
site, from lumber to door knobs. The
lumber was precisely cut in the factory,
the pieces were numbered and the
instructions were detailed, saving con-
struction time and labor costs. A small
house could go up 40 percent faster
than a comparable home, according to
"Houses by Mail," written by architec-
tural historians Katherine Stevens and
H. Ward Jandl.
The original house kits ranged in
price from $495 to $4,115. Some popu-
lar models similar to those in Avon Park
and their selling prices were: the
Vallonia, $1,465 to $2,479 (with interi-
or chimney); the Sunbeam, $2,425 to
$2,707; and the Homewood, $2,610 to
$2,809. If a homeowner did not want to
build it himself, Sears estimated that a
carpenter would charge $450 to assem-
ble the 30,000 pieces. Foundation
blocks, bricks, cement and plaster were
not included.
The houses were designed by archi-
tects, with well considered floor plans
and spacious rooms. They featured
attractive architectural details such as
built-in cupboards and bookcases, fire-
places, graceful staircases with solid
wood balustrades and leaded-glass win-
dows.
These kit-built houses are in high
demand today, because the quality of
Sears' materials has enabled them to
endure up to 80 years of family living,
Sears homes have entered the rarified
air of architectural Americana and peo-
ple are now seeking them out to pur-
chase, renovate and restore.
Tommy Stimson grew up in one of
the three Sears houses that grace the
north side of LaGrande Street in Avon
Park. His parents, Clare and Evelyn
Stimson, purchased the house in
January of 1947 for $2,700. Tommy, his
brother Roger and his sister,
Janet, grew up there and the
family lived in the house for
40 years.
Although the house was
already built when the family
bought it, Stimson knows it
is authentic because he has
seen the stamped numbers on
the beams and frames in the
attic, where the wood is still .
exposed.
"Each piece of lumber is
stamped with a number: ceil-
ing beams, floor joists, studs.
Everything had to be put
together from numbers on the
Sears plan. My dad saw that -
as soon as we got the house,"
Stimson said.
Like many of the original
Sears' houses, No. 22 went
through a lot of changes,
additions and upgrades over
the years. The original house
had three bedrooms and one
upstairs bathroom.
During the war, the house
was divided into four apart- - Tommy S

Tommy Stimson stands at the front door of the Sears house on 22 LaGrande St., which
his family owned for 40 years. The house was built in 1927 and is one of several Sears
Modern Homes in this block of Avon Park. These houses were constructed of high
quality materials which have enabled them to endure for 80 years.

been installed in what he called "my
dad's old junk room - he kept all his
tools and stuff in there." A back porch
had been closed in and that tiny down-
stairs bathroom was now large and
modem.
But many things remain the same.
The beautiful hardwood floors are still
exposed and gleaming, apparently never
suffering the paint and floor coverings
that have been infected on many old
homes. Sears homes were built of high
quality materials; interiors featured
clear-grade (i.e., knot-free) flooring and
inside trim made from yellow pine, oak
or maple wood.
"You can't pound a nail in these
walls," Stimson said and the current
owner nodded in agreement. "I remem-
ber Dad had to drill first whenever he
wanted to hang something on the walls.
The whole house is constructed of solid
yellow pine studs."
The original fireplace is still the focal
point of the living room. but is now
merely decorative.
"'We used that fireplace. there was no
central heat when %\e lied here. My
dad replaced the old pine fireplace
mandate with that solid cypress , though,"
Sutmson said, rubbing the polished
wood fondly.
Most of the Sears Modem Homes did
include a heating system, as thousands
of them were sold in northern states.
"Modem home" was the descriptive
term used to indi-
cate that a house
had amenities such
as electricity, a cen-
tral heating system
and indoor plumb-
ing.
In some cases,
the houses were
more modern than
the communities in
which they were
built, according to
Rosemary
Thornton, author of
"The Houses That
Sears Built."
Electricity and
. municipal water
systems were not
available in every
locale where Sears
homes were sold.
To meet this need,
Sears advertised
houses without
bathrooms well
into the 1920s and
offered an outhouse
for $23.
Most Sears
homes are located
in cities and towns
that were accessi-
ble by rail, within a
mile or two of the
depot. This is
because getting the
materials from the
nearest train depot
to the building site
was the homeown-
er's problem. In the
e Sears home where early days, people
place because the mde many trips

oe original hard- erty and the rail-

The downtown
neighborhoods of
early Avon Park were ideal locations for
building Sears houses. LaGrande Street
is only a couple of blocks from the rail-
road tracks. So it is no surprise that two
more Sears homes, of entirely different
designs, are just around the corner, fac-
ing North Lake Avenue. Both are cur-

DIVERSIONS



Confronting problems better than alternative


Question: If you were a
counselor who was helping
someone manage a crisis situa-
tion in a marriage, your recom-
mendations to exercise tough
love could potentially kill the
marriage. Doesn't that make
you nervous? Have you ever
regretted taking a family in this
direction?
Dr. Dobson: To answer that
question you need to under-
stand how I see my situation.
My role is similar to that of a
surgeon who tells a patient that
he needs a coronary artery
bypass operation. The man sits
in his doctor's office, hearing
the probabilities of success and
failure. "If you undergo this
operation," the doctor says,
"research shows you'll have a 3
percent chance of not surviving
the surgery." Wow! Three out of
every 100 people who submit to
the knife will die on the' table!
Why would anyone run that risk
voluntarily? Because the
chances of death are far greater
without the surgery.
The love must be tough -
confrontations and ultimatums
are like that. They may result in
the sudden demise of a relation-
ship. But, without the crisis,
there is a much higher probabil-
ity of a lingering death. Instead
of bringing the matter to a head
while there is a chance for heal-
ing, the alternative is to stand


by while the marriage
dies with a whimper.
I'd rather take my
chances today, before '-
further damage is ,-
done. A blowout is
better than a slow
leak.
Question: My S
family lives together
under one roof and FO
we share the same ON
last name, but we
don't "feel" like a FA
family. How can I
begin to put a sense Dr.
of togetherness into Do
this harried house- -
hold? How do you
put meaningful activities into
your family?
Dr. Dobson: One way to
accomplish that is by creating
traditions in .your home. By tra-
ditions, I'm referring to those
recurring events and behaviors
that are anticipated, especially
by children, as times of close-
ness and fellowship between
loved ones.
In our family, the centerpiece
of our holiday traditions is
food. Each year during
Thanksgiving and. Christmas,
the women prepare marvelous
turkey dinners with all the trim-
mings. Another great favorite
at that time is a fruit dish called
ambrosia, containing sectioned
oranges and grapes. The family

peels the grapes
together the night
before the big day.
These holidays are
wonderful experi-
encesg for all of us.
There's laughter and
warm family interac-
tion throughout the
day, We look forward
to that festive season,
not just for the food,
but for what happens
between loved ones
who come together
on that occasion.
We also have des-
ignated foods on the
other holidays


throughout the year. On New
Year's Day, for reasons that I
cannot explain, we enjoy a
Southern meal of pinto beans
cooked at least eight hours with
large chunks of lean ham,
served with corn bread and little
onions. It's so good! For many
years, we invited 30 or more
friends to our home on July
Fourth and served them barbe-
cued hamburgers and baked
beans. This became a prelude to
a fireworks display, and much
fun and laughter.
There are many other tradi-
tions. Immediately prior to
Thanksgiving dinner, each per-
son is given two kernels of
Indian corn to symbolize the
blessings he or she is most


thankful for that year. A basket
is passed and every member
drops in the corn while sharing
their two richest blessings from
God during that year. Our
expressions of thankfulness
inevitably involve people -
children, grandparents and
other loved ones. As the basket
moves around the table, tears of
appreciation and love are evi-
dent on many faces. It is one of
the most beautiful moments of
the year.
The great value of traditions
is that they give a family a
sense of identity and belonging.
All of us desperately need to
feel that we're not just part of a
busy cluster of people living
together in a house, but we're a
living, breathing family that's
conscious of our uniqueness,
our character and our heritage.
That feeling is the only antidote
for the loneliness and isolation
that characterize so many
homes today.

Creating an edible landscape


* This is the first of a three-part
series. Next week will continue
with companion planting and
how it works.

Have you ever thought of
creating an edible landscape?
Designing ant planting an
edible landscape means you
would have a significant
amount of plants you could
actually consume. To take it a
bit further than the pot of culi-
nary herbs by the kitchen door.
And edible landscape would
have fruit trees and vines, vari-
eties of lettuce and peppers,
even edible flowers all min-
gling in just the right amount.
The benefits of an edible
landscape are two-fold. First,
there's the obvious bonus of
having delicious fruits and veg-
etables right at hand. The sec-
ond benefit is the interesting
and dramatic impact such a
design can have on your proper-
ty. Florida's climate can allow
for an amazing variety of edible
plants to be grown in our yards.
Tom Wichman, Florida



Turn some
When did I know it was fall?
My walking partner and myself
noticed that it felt cooler when
we left the library building for
our daily before-work walk.
Driving downtown early one
Saturday morning, I saw a
beautiful red orb hanging in a
misty sky, with wisps of fog
trailing over Lake Jackson ...
yes, that's a sign of fall. For
concrete confirmation of that
fact, my favorite discount store
suddenly filled its shelves with
decorations for fall, Halloween
and Christmas. The final sign
came in a mailing to the library
with orange crinkly paper filler.
Yep, fall is definitely here.
Celebrate fall with us by
turning some leaves of seasonal
books. Be sure to take home
"The Beauty of Autumn
Through the Artistry of David
Hula;" "Autumn Across
America;" or give thanks for
modem amenities as you read
"Autumn of the Middle Ages,"
taking us through medieval
France and the Netherlands.
Fall brings out the poet in all of
us, but if you prefer someone
else's thoughts rather than your
own, take home "Auden:
Poems," and enjoy his
"Autumn Song," or "Hunting
Season." Children will want
you to read to them the bilin-
gual collection of poems in
which the renowned Mexican
American poet Francisco
Alarcon revisits and celebrates
his childhood memories of fall
in Los Angeles. His book is'
called "Angels Ride Bikes and
Other Fall Poems."

Any landscape can

for appropriate size.
Today's home prop-

GROWING
SEASON

develop gardens and landscap-
ing. Anymore, it's a luxury to
add plants to the landscape that
only offer one season of interest
or one function in the garden. It
really is becoming almost
essential to find plants that can
perform more than one function
in today's garden. One way in
which to provide form and
function is to add edible land-
scaping.
Plant what you like to eat.


Lawns can be fun,
productive, tasty,
beautiful, challeng-
ing, fragrant and a lot
more. By adding edi-
ble plants to your gar-
den will increase its
interest and value
many fold. Having
something tasty to
look forward to, new
textures and colors in
the landscape and the
satisfaction of produc-
ing food for the family
are all good reasons to
create and edible land-
scape.


There is no reason to dig up
the whole yard and start from
scratch. Rather, begin by adding
a few edibles here and there
. instead of purely ornamental
plants. After all whether it is a
glass of mint tea or a juicy red
tomato, there is nothing more
satisfying than saying "I grew it
myself."
Whether you're considering
either creating an entire edible
landscape, or just incorporating


a few "goodies" here and there
in your existirfg plan, be sure to
pace yourself. Growing edible
plants means a real commit-
ment. For one thing, the use of
chemical will need to halt or be
severely curtailed. Pesticides
and herbicides are not advised
for use on plants to be eaten.
This means dealing with pest
and 'diseases will need to be
handled in a more organic fash-
ion: Many gardeners already
use natural pest treatments and
a method called companion
planting.

An inspirational thought

S I Corinthians 10:13 says,
-"There hath no temptation
. taken you but such as ,is
common to man: but God is
S, faithful, who will not suffer you
to be tempted above that ye are
* jB -- able; but will with the
- temptation also make a way tQo
' escape that ye may be able t6"
bear it." Know for yourself, in whatever situation
you are facing today, your way of escape has
alreadiT' been made. Victory can be ours if ive apple'
what the W'ord of God is saying to us. W'e are not
going to be tempted above which we are able. \\'e
go through different tests in order for the Lord to
make us the person lie wants us to be. In our test we
must wait on the Lord. When lie brings us out. we
know we have the victory. At times during our
testing, we want to rush totle finish, but the Lord
is still working on us. 'isbing our way out could
only make the test Ib.ge . wt'hen the flesh is
tempted. we must st - n' !.i God's Word. Let's
remember what thie iWord says to us, our escaped is
already made, so go through your test. and see tIhe
victory that waits for you.at the end. From myn heart
to yours. Be Encouraged!

Swimmer's itch keeps people scratching


Last week I talked about a
rare disease caused by coming
in contact with a particular
amoeba while swimming. A
more common. but less severe
problem associated with swim-
ming in freshwater is known as
swimmer's itch.
You can probably "guess the
symptom of swimmer's itch,
itching. More specifically,
swimmer's itch is a patchy red
pinpoint skin rash associated
with itching on the parts of the
body that have been in the
water. Swimmer's itch is usual-
ly not severe. After the initial
transient itching it will disap-
pear without treatment. The
itching occurs within 48 hours
and may last up to seven days.
Rarely, it can be severe if a
large proportion of the body is
affected. It is important to
remember that the disease is
neither communicable nor fatal.
In Florida, swimmer's itch is
not a notifiable disease so no
cases have been documented.
The major, although not the


only, cause of swim-
mer's itch are trema-
tode parasites of
aquatic birds. The
life cycles of these
parasites involve
snails as the first host
and aquatic birds or
some mammals as .
the final host. The
larval parasite called NEWS
a cercariaa" is T
released by snails
and causes dermatitis WATE
(skin inflammation)
when it mistakenly Jennife
penetrates a person's -
skin rather than it
rightful host, usually a duck.
Swimmer's itch occurs in both
freshwater and in the marine
coastal environments. In the
marine environment, however,
itching may also be caused by
contact with the larval form of
the thimble jellyfish, sea
anemone, Portuguese Man-of-
War, and probably numerous
others.
The likelihood of encounter-


H

ER

er


'ing swimmer's itch is
increased in the sum-
mer due to several
factors. One factor is
summer water tem-
peratures are perfect
for snail reproduction
and growth. Also
_... occurring in the sum-
mer in northern states
FROM is the return f
E migrating aquatiL
birds or domesticated
SHED aquatic birds return-
ing to full activity
Donze that may be infected
- with the trematode
parasite. But possibly
the biggest factor is that the fre-
quency of swimmers and
bathers reaches its peak during
the summer. Over the past ten
years, the baseline temperatures,
of the freshwater bodies in .tem-
perate zones have increased and
migrating aquatic'bird popula-
tions have generally increased,
creating a potentially greater
risk of swimmer's itch.
One easy way to help prevent


a case of swimmer's itch is to
towel dry instead of letting the
water evaporate off the skin.
That's partially why children
are most infected due to their
habits of swimming or wading
in the water and playing on the
beach as water evaporates from
the skin. Also, it is a good idea
to avoid swimming near water-
fowl because they are the final
host of the parasite.
Treatment of the symptoms
(itching) can be as simple as
applying an over the counter
antihistaminic cream. If the*
itching is severe, excessive
scratching can aggravate the
problem and skin infections
may develop. You should con-
tact your' health care provider
for proper medical treatment.

Help needed at Bok during holidays


LAKE WALES - More than 200 volunteer
angels are needed to assist the staff at Historic
Bok Sanctuary in operating Pinewood Estate for
its prestigious Christmas at Pinewood holiday
home tour Nov. 25 through Jan. 1.
Pinewood Estate, built in the early 1930s and
listed on the National Register of Historic Places,
is a 20-room Mediterranean Revival mansion that
will be splendidly decorated for the holidays.
This year's theme is "Holiday Splendor." The
11th annual home tour will showcase the decora-
tive designs of a collective group' of central
Florida businesses.
The five-week Christmas at Pinewood home
tour has 900 volunteer shifts that need to be filled
to ensure the success of the annual event.
Volunteer angel opportunities include greeting
visitors, selling tickets and driving a shuttle.
According to Lisa Allen, Historic Bok Sanctuary


volunteer program coordinator. "The success of
Christmas at Pinewood can be largely attributed
to our many hard-working volunteer angels."
Training sessions for CAP volunteers will be
Nov. 17 and 18 in the lecture hall at Historic Bok
Sanctuary. New volunteers are asked to select
and attend one morning session from 9:30 a.m. to
noon to learn about the history of the sanctuary,
Pinewood Estate and Christmas at Pinewood.
New and returning volunteer angels need to
attend one afternoon session from 1:30 p.m. to
3:30 p.m. Nov. 17 or 18 to discuss the event
theme and specific volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers will sign up for their shift schedule at
that time.
For more information and a volunteer angel
application, contact Allen at (863) 676-1408, ext.
2224, or e-mail lallen@boksanctuary.org.


Volunteers needed to paint


mailboxes for hurricane victims


FROSTPROOF -- After the
hurricanes that blew through
Florida last year, many people
were blessed with beautiful,
hand-painted mailboxes that
helped add some beauty back
into their lives.
This was made possible
through the generosity of many
decorative painters all over the
country.
Donna Dewberry, a well-
" known decorative artist is
famous for developing the One
Stroke painting technique.
Dewberry has certified instruc-
tors all over the area who, with
the help of their students, paint-
ed hundreds of mailboxes for
Floridians affected by last
year's hurricanes. They were
sent to American Red Cross
facilities in the affected areas,
which were handed out to peo-
ple whose mailboxes were
destroyed in the hurricanes.
Now it's time to return the
favor.
Vicki Alley, a One Stroke
certified instructor, has made
arrangements with the
Frostproof Art League to hold
painting sessions at the
Frostproof Art Gallery, 12. Wall
St., Frostproof from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 and
Saturday, Nov. 5. There will be
a morning painting session and


an afternoon painting session
on each day.
Everyone is invited and
encouraged to come by and
paint a mailbox. Alley would
like to send 100 decorated mail-
boxes to the Red Cross for peo-
ple affected by Hurricane
Katrina and Hurricane Rita.
Bring a new, standard, post
style mailbox and paint brushes
if you have them. The paints
and extra brushes will be fur-
nished.
All painters and non-painters
are welcome. If anyone has
ever wanted to learn One


Stroke, this will be a good
opportunity to try it out.
Alley of Frostproof, Judy
Nicewicz of Avon Park and
Dawn Kelly of Lake Wales are
all certified One Stroke instruc-
tors and will be on hand to help
anyone who needs it.
For more information or to
make a contribution for the
cause, contact the Frostproof
Art Gallery at (863) 635-7271
or Alley at (863) 632-1472. For
those who want to help but
don't want to paint, can buy a
mailbox and drop it off at the
art gallery.

then go ahead.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.

they aren't. Just remember that
you attract more flies with

This is the entryway and staircase of the Sears home at 22
LaGrande St., Avon Park. The original house kits ranged in price
from $495 to $4,115. If a homeowner did not want to build it him-
self, Sears estimated that a carpenter would charge $45Q to assemble
the 30,000 pieces. This home recently sold for $160,000.

The Stimsons sold their
house in 1987 for about
$10,000 as Tommy Stimson
recalled. Its value has contin-
ued to increase over the years.
The current owners paid
$25,000 for the house in 1993
and just sold it in August 2005
for $160,000, according to a
spokesman for the family.


Tommy Stimson and his
wife, Janet, still live in Avon
Park. Tommy often drinks cof-
fee at the local doughnut shop
with friends he has'known
since high school. When he
looks out the window of the
restaurant on U.S. 27, "there
are more ears going by in one
hour than used to go through
Avon Park in a week. It was a
lot quieter back in the '40s and
'50s, but it's still a beautiful
town."

Artists

create

beauty for

Lake Placid
LAKE PLACID - Six
members of the Lake Placid Art
League created canvases for
buildings in the town with
paints donated by the Lake
Placid Mural Society.
They donated their artistic
creativity to paint scenes of the
community, utilizing mural
paints for durability. The paint-
ings hang along Main Avenue
on the yellow building and the
brick building in the north 200
block of Lake Placid on both
sides of the street; the artwork
was dedicateicated recently, follow-
ing which the artists were hon-
ored at a reception at the art
league building.
Marion Murphy designed
and painted a cattle-roping by
cowboys to depict the cattle
industry in Highlands County.
Her action-filled design shows
the roundup activity, very col-
orfully presented as it exists on
ranches here in the county.
Revi Guzauskas chose to
paint the Florida panther, quiet-
'ly resting among the foliage of
the countryside. Guzauskas'
paint shows the panther on a
limb amongst Florida foliage.
At the presentation, members
of the art league and Lake
Placid applauded the artists for
their efforts, arpong them
Dorothy Quay, an artist herself
who paints Florida scenes.
The four other artists:
Margie Callas, Jean Gragert,
Joan Swanson and Jo Tobler
created paintings of an egret
flying alongside a Florida river,
a Florida bear in its habitat, a
citrus grove scene with a work-
er riding a tractor and a land-
scape of Florida water, palms
and trees.
All the artists are seasoned
painters who are generous vol-
unteers in the community.
Their artworks can be enjoyed
by the entire.Lake- Placid com-,
-munity as the3 iii lthe shops-"
in Lake Placid.

Red Devils put on a show

LAKE PLACID - The

things back on track Friday
night. Now, the question is
whether they can keep from

last week, the

improve to 6-1.
"We played

"We played


Poinciana two weeks ago,
which wasn't a very good foot-
ball team, and we played bad.
Last week against DeSoto,
they were a good football
team, and we played worse."
Lake Placid coach Shaw
Maddox said before the game
that he was concerned about
the Devils' speed advantage,

and he was proved right as
Avon Park dominated the
Dragons (1-5) on both sides of
the ball from the opening
whistle.
"The most dangerous things
in high school football are
speed, speed and speed and


they've got all three of them,"
Maddox said of the Devils.
"When you can't run with
them, it's hard to stop them.
They've got some good ath-
letes on that football team."
"I have a lot of respect for
Coach Maddox and he's done


a great job over here, but we
knew they were going to be,
down a little bit," Cousins
said. "I was afraid our kids
were going to come and play

Sebring cruises to


sweep of Avon Park


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
AVON PARK - The Lady
Streaks left no doubt.
After losing the first of
four in-county matches to
Lake Placid, Sebring won the
final three without dropping a
single game, including Friday
night's 25-11, 25-18, 25-18
'sweep at Avon Park behind
six kills and two blocks from
junior Brittany Bullock.
"That's what she's sup-
posed to do," Sebring head
coach Venessa Sinness said of
Bullock, the catalyst of a 6-0
start in the clinching game.
"That's her job. She's our go-
to girl and she did a good job
tonight. She played very
well."
Yet for most of the match,
the Streaks (11-8, 7-3 in
District 10-4A) featured a
balanced attack, as Jessica
Cooley, Amber Foster and
Katlin Hamlin all racked up
four kills apiece off Lindsay
Espaillat's 25 assists. Once
Sebring put the ball over the
net, the Devils' (3-10, 3-8)
poor timing left them step


slow.
"It seems like when we get
in games we get kind of nerv-
ous or something, I'm not for
sure," Avon Park head coach
Christie Hipps said. "But I
tell them that the ball is slow,
that means you're going to
have to pick up your feet to
get the ball. We're not aggres-
sive enough to get there and
get the ball over the net and
hit it in the right spot."
Sinness, too, said her team
is still given to mental lapses.
. "Those errors shouldn't be
there. We have to start elimi-
nating them," she said.
�"Those are mistakes that, if
we're making them late in the
season, it's going to catch up.
with us."
Nonetheless, Sinness said
her team shows more grit than
it did earlier, and their gump-
tion was evident on Clarisse
Tuazon's daring save just
inches from the stage that led
to one of Hamlin's kills in the
second game.
"She's a great libero,"

Chuck Myron


This writer's

next step is

Crystal clear
Billy Crystal: You're out of
here, Jabbar!
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Are
you nuts? It's my farewell
game.
Crystal: Well then, let me be
the first to say ... farewell!
I figured if I'm going to say
goodbye to a sports writing
job, I ought to bring up these
lines from "Forget Paris," one
of my favorite sports movies.
If you've never seen it,
Crystal plays an NBA referee
who becomes frustrated in life
and love, and one day goes
berserk and ejects just about
everybody from a Lakers-
Pistons game. When I saw this
in theaters, I had no idea that
10 years later, I'd be writing
columns about everyone else-
going berserk in a Pacers-
Pistons game.
I had even less of a clue that
one day I'd be identifyingwith
another scene in the film.
Crystal's character is lying on
a hotel bed, talking to a friend,
and is so run down by years of
travel that he honestly can't
remember whether he's in
Charlotte, N.C. or Denver.
I've dome to the realization
that if I were going to make it
where I wanted to go in sports
writing, I'd have to endure
nights like that. And quite
frankly, I just don't want to.
So,-I've decided to take a
job as a copy editor at another
newspaper that will allow me
to more quickly get where I'm
going without a midnight stop
in Charlotte, Denver or
Timbuktu.
It will also be in a place
where I'd like to settle, quite a
plus considering I've lived in
five different apartments in
three different states over the
last three years, all of which,
in another "Forget Paris" par-
allel, were decorated to look
like shrines to watching ESPN.
Yet it is not without regret
and some good memories that
I leave sports writing, and
Highlands County, behind.
And I would be entirely remiss
if I didn't thank my editor,
Scott Dressel, for rescuing me
from Appalachia. Trust me -
a quarter-century in the hills is
enough for anybody.
Once I got here, I found that
working with Scott was a real
joy and privilege. A journalist
of his talent and skill could
work anywhere, and I hope
this paper and the community
it serves appreciate just what a
rare gem they have.
Executive editor Romona
Washington was just as instru-
mental in bringing me here,
and she also gave me the
chance to copy edit some news
stories, which awakened the
old passions I have for this
craft, and for which I am eter-
nally grateful.
There are plenty of other
people I could mention, for
everything from help with a
story to pointing out my tail-
light wasn't working on the
way to a game. I'm leaving
behind some cherished friend-
ships, and all told, there are
too many names to fit in this
space. But suffice it to say I
couldn't have achieved my
dreams alone.
I also couldn't do what I'm
doing without you, the reader.
Without you, we journalists
are irrelevant. I hope I have
served your interests well, and
I thank you for taking the time
to stay enlightened, engaged
and entertained.

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
opponents 28-7 in the first half.
"We've just been working on
(playing strong in the first
half)," head coach Jared
Hamlin said. "I mean, we just
went through those first four
weeks and we didn't do a very
good job in the first half and we
just kept harping on them,
'we've got to come out strong,'
and we're getting better. We're
a young football, team and
they're starting to learn."
Despite Lowe's perform-
ance, rushing yards came spar-
ingly throughout the night.
Hamlin's game plan was to
run first and pass second and
Okeechobee (3-4) was obvi-
ously focused on stopping Blue
Streak tailback T.J. Williams,
who broke off 149 yards
against sixth-ranked Hardee
last week. That allowed quar-
terback A.C. Wilson to pick the
defense apart through the air,
and" he completed his first six
passes for 90 yards and two
touchdowns in the first 14 min-
utes of the game, both scoring
tosses going to Sam Robinson.
"I thought we'd be able to do
some things like that," Hamlin
said about the passing game. "I
thought we had some mis-
matches and we were going to
try to execute there and take
advantage of that."
Wilson then accented his
night with three huge special
teams plays, dropping two
punts inside the Brahmans' 10-
yard line and returning a punt
30 yards to set up Sebring's
third score late in the game.
Sebring started its first scor-
ing drive with 3:25 left in the
first quarter, marching 52 yards
on seven plays. After using first
six plays on the ground to get to
Okeechobee's 24-yard line, the
Streaks finally went to the air
and Wilson connected with
Robinson on his first pass of
the game, a post route to the
end zone to go ahead 7-0.
Problems continued to grow
for the Brahmans when, after
gaining 48 yards on three plays,
Austin Andrews recovered *a
fumble deep in Sebring territo-
ry to end the drive.
Sebring continued to capital-
ize through the air on the ensu-
ing drive when Wilson hit T.J.
Hicks three times for 49 yards.
Four rushes by Williams kept
the chains moving until Wilson
connected Robinson again.
Meanwhile, Sebring's
defense was in the midst of
pitching its second shutout in
three games. The Streaks
forced three turnovers overall,
two coming when the
Brahmans were steadily march-
ing toward the end zone and
one a Hicks interception on a
fake punt.
Kicker Paul Ashley high-
lighted Sebring's effort, com-
ing up with one of the blue and
white's numerous touchdown-
saving plays late in the game.
After Sebring took its 21-0
lead, Okeechobee's Virgil
Barrett received Ashley's kick-
off deep in his own territory
and finally lit up the home
crowd. Weaving through traf-
fic, Barrett bounced off one
tackle and hit the jets, racing up
the middle to the 50-yard line
with one man to beat.
' The kicker was that one.
Lowering his head, Ashley
promptly dropped Barrett to the
ground, knocking the ball loose
in the process.
, Sebring leapt on the ball and
Okeechobee would only see the
ball one more time before the
Streaks ran out the final nine-
and-a-half minutes of the game.

TEAM STATS


CHUCK MYRON/News-Sun
Brittany Bullock soars over the net for a kill Friday night against
Avon Park.


SWEEP
Continued from 1D
Sinness said of Tuazon, the
kind of back middle hitter
Hipps envies. "She reads very
well, that's the most important
thing. She knows how to read,
she's where the ball's going to
be.
"It's very frustrating as a hit-
ter, because you think you're
hitting where there's nobody,
and she's there.".
The Streaks consistently
stymied the Devils after pulling
ahead in the first game on a
Cooley kflI that made it.8-7.
From that point on, Avon Park
never held a lead, even though
they had jumped out to an early


SHOW
Continued from 1D
We still made a few mistakes,
but nowhere near the mistakes
we made last week."
Quarterback T.K. Hill, who
threw three interceptions last
week, came back with three
touchdown passes - including
scoring strikes of 24 and 42
yards to Gerrard Coleman -
and a touchdown run against
the Dragons, finishing 12 of 18
for 235 yards.
"His shoulder felt a lot better
and he threw the ball much bet-
ter," Cousins said of Hill.
"We've been working on his
mechanics. When he's on, he's
tough. When he's off, he's terri-,
ble, and he knows that. But he's
just a junior and he's only going
to get better."
Hill connected with Bo
Comadore for a 21 -yard pass to
set up the Devils' first score,
and then found Rafael Johnson
for an electrifying 67-yard
catch-and-run down to the Lake
Placid 1-yard line to set up
another touchdown as the
Devils jumped out to a quick
14-0 lead on their first two pos-
sessions.
The Devils outgained the
Dragons 248-24 in the first half,
with 22 of those Dragon yards
coming on one Stephen Gist
run in the final minute of the
half. That play also gave the
Dragons their only first down in
the first three quarters.
On defense, Avon Park had
three interceptions of Conlin
.Veley - two by Taiwan Perry
- and a fumble recovery and
also blocked two punts.
"They put a lot of pressure
on us," Maddox said. "Conlin's
young and (was) under fire.
He'll be all right. That was sort
of a trial by fire."
Now the Devils turn their
focus to undefeated and sixth-
ranked Hardee and what will be
a nffake-or-break District 12-3A
game at Joe Franza Stadium.
Cousins said his team will have
to be firing on all cylinders if
they want to snap the Wildcats'
38-game regular-season win-
ning streak.
"We've got to keep getting


6-1 advantage.
Part of Sebring's ability to
stay on top is drawn from keep-
ing 92 percent of its serves in
play, topping Sinness' standard
of 90 percent. Hamlin, whose
run of five straight points
helped the Streaks blow out the
first game, and Rachel Ashley
each had three aces.
Still, Hipps thinks her play-
ers are just as capable.
"They're a good team. We're
good also," she said. "We've
just got to work together and
work the kinks out, and we'll be
on top."
Both clubs will now focus on
gearing up for the district tour-

better. That effort was good
enough to beat Lake Placid, but
that execution and that effort
won't beat Hardee. We keep
telling our kids that we're a
pretty good football team when
we do things right. If we don't
do it right, we're not a very
good football team. They came
out tonight and did things right.
"We've got the biggest game
of our year next week. If we can
beat Hardee, we're back in the
driver's seat, right in the middle
of things."
For Maddox and the
Dragons, however, the main
concern is getting through the
season with enough players to
field a team.
"We've just got to try to stay
healthy," said Maddox, who
had just 18 players dressed
Friday night. "We've just got to
get well and got to get better.
We've (also) got to get faster,
but I don't know how to do that
yet."


Wild turkey population has rebounded


The Florida wild turkey is
an exceptionally beautiful bird.
One of the most sought after
game birds in the state, it has
bounced back from the over-
hunting that reduced its num-
bers to threatening levels in the
1940s. Thanks to the efforts of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, the
population of wild turkeys has
flourished.
Occasionally, some
landowners complain there are
too many turkeys on their land.
They are mostly concerned
with disease outbreaks due to
population density. While this
is true with many animal popu-
lations, it rarely occurs with
wild turkeys even though they
gather in large flocks.
Wild turkeys generally pre-
fer forested areas with moder-
ate ground cover vegetation.
They are found in all types of
terrain in Florida, including
swamps and hammocks, ponds
and marshes, edges of dry
prairies and pine flatwoods.
Good nesting habitat consists
of dense, knee-high vegetation,
such as saw palmetto.
Nesting begins in early
March and the hens lay their
eggs through the month of
May. Clutches of up to 20 eggs
have been reported, but the
average clutch is 10. The hen
tends the nest alone for about
28 days.
The wild turkey's nest is a
shallow hollow on the ground,
hidden in dense vegetation.


OUTDOORS

Lloyd Jones

The eggs are a pale buff to
white and are heavily spotted
and speckled with brown or
purplish-brown.
Only 50 percent of wild
turkey nests successfully hatch
due to predators, although
nests are lost by other causes
such as agricultural activities
and flooding. Hens will often
re-nest if their original nest is
destroyed.
The young roost on the
ground for the first 14 days
after hatching. At this time,
they are very vulnerable to
predators. Raccoons, skunks,
opossums, foxes, coyotes and
domestic dogs kill and destroy
up to 70 percent of the young.
*Those that survive are able to
fly when 14 days old and can
begin, roosting above the
ground.
The young brood stays
together until winter, and
sometimes two or more broods
will join together in a flock.
Young turkeys need a diet of


insects, succulent vegetation
and green plant seeds. Adults'
diets vary with what is avail-
able seasonally, such as acorns,
grass seeds, other fruits and
seeds and insects.
Along with predators, dis-
eases are also a natural element
in a wild turkey's environment.
Most disease outbreaks involve
only a few turkeys and typical-
ly have little effect on the pop-
ulation as a whole.
A common disease among
the wild turkeys of Florida is
avian pox. This is caused by a
virus that infects most turkeys
in Florida and is usually trans-
mitted by mosquitoes and other
blood-feeding insect bites.
Avian pox likely contributes to
the death of some wild turkeys
each year, but not in significant
numbers.
The fall hunting season for
wild turkeys is coming up
soon. According to Florida's
hunting regulations, that area
of Highlands County north of
State Road 70 is in the central
hunting zone and south of S.R.
70 is in the south hunting zone.
In both zones, the hunting
dates for wild turkey on private
lands are the same: Nov. 12
through Jan, 8. Hunters are
limited to one turkey daily and'
two turkeys for the season. In
addition to a hunting license, a
turkey permit is required.

Associated Press
ATLANTA - The Sugar Bowl is going from
Bourbon Street to Peachtree Street, from the
Superdome to the Georgia Dome, from gumbo to
grits.
Forced out of flood-ravaged New Orleans, the
Sugar Bowl will be played Jan. 2 in Atlanta -
the first time in its 72-year history the game will
be held anywhere but the Big Easy.
Atlanta hotels plan to donate 10 percent of rev-
enue generated by Sugar Bowl fans to the recov-
ery effort. Organizers also are discussing the pos-
sibility of a Mardi Gras-style parade and benefit
concert to raise funds.
Atlanta has been one of the leading cities in


taking evacuees from New Orleans and it was a
logical choice to step in as a replacement host for
the Sugar Bowl because of its ties to the
Southeastern Conference. The SEC* holds its
annual championship at the Georgia Dome and
has long been affiliated with the Sugar.Bowl.
The Sugar Bowl will be one of three major
football games played at the 70,000-seat Georgia
Dome in four days. The Peach Bowl is set for
Jan. 30, the Atlanta Falcons will host their final
regular-season game on New Year's Day, and the
Sugar-will be held the following night.
The New Orleans-based bowl will set up an
office in Atlanta for its seven full-time employ-
ees.

"Burnout Revenge"
EA Games; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (10+) (violence)
****' Score: 4.5 out of 5
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
Like other "Burnout" games before
it, "Burnout Revenge" is about as
far removed from a driving simu-
lation as you can get while still involving
driving.
It's better described as a crashing
game; a lushly depicted, instantly
playable, way-over-the-top crash-bang-
smash-'em-up with a mandate to mangle
the competition.
The more you smash, the more power
boost you gain, which is then used to
thrust yourself out of sticky situations
(such as when an opponent is side-swip-
ing you into oncoming traffic), propel
you into them if it's to your advantage
(like when a buddy is ripe for a ride
against a guardrail) and, ultimately,
rocket you across the finish line. Like

. If you've created a collision worth
watching, the view switches to slow-
motion movie mode, swooping and pan-
ning around the event horizon while
your car is momentarily switched to
autopilot, allowing you to rubberneck
the glory of your deeds like you might
in a "Matrix" movie:
Like any sequel worth its salt,
"Revenge" adds a few new modes and
gameplay elenients; the more endearing
.of which includes the use of regular
vehicles as your own personal pawns o'
destruction. There's an unprecedented
amount of ramps and assorted smash-
ables, allowing you to really get creative


when setting up chain-reaction pileups
and collateral damage.
You can also participate in slo-mo
doom sequences. If it's you who's
doomed, you can pick your eventual
landing spot so it will do some damage;
a Kamikaze option with the potential to
take out everything in the vicinity and
mess up the roadway for anything else
coming up behind. That alone adds
depth to the full-throttle action of the
single-player experience, but you can
also do multi-player mayhem online
with up to six players, which can really
ramp up the challenge of it all. There
are more than a few self-trained mani-
acs out there ready to take you on and
take you out.
