WHAT'S INSIDE


Meth often comes

with dual disorders

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - Not everyone can
get into substance abuse treatment, and
fewer succeed.
They must stick with the program dur-
ing rehabilitation and once they go back
into society.
Program Manager Ada. I. Olabarrieta,
at the Tri-County Human Services
Florida Center for Addictions and Dual
Disorders, said Highlands County needs
after-care programs to help clients stay
clean.
She and her staff have to work with
clients as they get them, with occasional
follow-ups through personal contact or


annual client reunions.
Last May's client' reunion drew 150.
Most clients have stayed clean two or
three years, she said. One from New
York City had been clean for six months.
At another reunion two years ago, one
celebrated 18 years without drugs.
The first year is the hardest,
Olabarrieta said. Without some kind of
after-care program, many people will
fail.
Dual disorders
Successful treatment means treating
dual disorders, she -said: Drug addictions'
and mental disorders feed off each other.
People either start using drugs and
develop mental problems or they start
with mental problems and use drugs to
medicate themselves. It's a classic
"chicken and the egg" scenario,
Olabarrieta said.


Originally, only half of the problem
got treated, Olabarrieta said. Funds for
,mental health and substance abuse pro-
grams are still kept separate. Tri-County
receives funding from the Department of
Children and Families for substance
abuse, but has some crossover treatment.
Most addicts at Tri-County have a
polisubstance - three or more chemi-
cals - dependency, Olabarrieta said.
Those from the tri-county area of
Highlands, Hardee and Polk tend to
combine meth, cocaine and alcohol.
Some use opium. Almost all have used
marijuana.
Approximately 60 percent of their
clients have a methamphetamine
dependency coupled with something,
according to Wes Kaufmann, clinical
coordinator and certified addition pro-
fessional.
Occasionally, they still get straight


alcoholics, Kaufmann said.
Capacity
The dual-disorders center has room
for -29 people, with five beds for sub-
stance abuse only.
The center can't help the persistently
mental ill -- with chronic disorders -
or those with a history of violence or
sexual offenses. An open campus adja-
cent to South Florida Community
College with clients living in close prox-
imity to each other won't allow it.
Tight security procedures,, back-
ground checks and a screening process
prevent problems, Olabarrieta said.
In the last 12 years, Kaufmann said,
they have not had a client - even court
ordered - sneak in drugs. They have
been lucky, he said.

School cell



phone policy



worries some


By CHRISTOPHEq TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Some par-
ents are voicing increasing
concern over the school dis-
trict's new cell phone policy.
While they understand and
support the policy of no
phones in school, they say
they want their children to be
able to carry cell phones
while walking or biking to
and from school. They say it
is an issue of safety.
Stephanie Cormier-Wilson
has a particular concern. She
says her daughter, who. is in
the seventh grade at Hill-
Gustat Middle School and
walks to school, has been the
target of a convicted child
molester who is due to be
released from prison in the
near future.
She wants her daughter to
be able to carry a Nextel
Boost phone while en route to
and from school, so her
daughter can call for help
should she need it.
James Coyle, the father of
another Hill-Gustat middle
schooler, has a similar fear
for his son, who bicycles to
school every day. He had
given his son a cell phone to
carry in case of emergencies,
because he had been told that
most child abductions occur
while children are going to
and from school.
Coyle, whose son was
recently punished for bring-
ing that cell phone to school,
was therefore upset that his
son now has to leave the
phone at home.
He was especially upset, he
added, when he received


notice that a boy similar in
description to his own son,
had been approached while
on his way to Hill-Gustat, by
a stranger driving by in a car.
The initial report stated the
boy pulled out a cell phone
and threatened to call the
police, at which point the
man had driven away.
Coyle only wants his son to
have the same protection. He
plans to start collecting signa-
tures for a petition drive ask-
ing The School .Board of
Highlands County to review
and rewrite its policy.
Jim Bible,
assistant
school super-
1�w intendent,
coordinated
the study that
led to the no
cell phone
SAULS policy. He
reports few parents have
expressed complaints, and
that those who have done so,
were concerned about stu-
dents with medical condi-
tions.
He said the Parent Guide,
which outlines all school
policies regarding students, is
automatically reviewed each
year, and that would be the
appropriate time to re-exam-
ine the policy.
Sgt. Monica Sauls, who
coordinates school resource
officers for the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office,
strongly endorses the school
district's strict no cell phone
policy.
"We have come so far," she
said. "I can't tell you what an

Driver dies
from injuries
SEBRING - An elderly
driver, in a T-bone wreck at
U.S. 27 and Lake June
Road, has died a week
afterwards from his
injuries.
Robert P. Schmid, 88, of
Lake Placid, died Oct. 11
in Florida Hospital Lake
Placid, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol.
He was wearing his seat
belt in his 2001 Lincoln,
but was hit in the driver's
side by southbound traffic
at 12:27 p.m. Wednesday,
Oct. 5. According to FHP
reports, he failed to stop at
the sign and pulled out
across southbound high-
way 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 northbound lanes, and
stopped on the opposite
shoulder. He received
minor injuries. -


Renfro a source of historical data


* First of two parts.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING -- When Wendy
Renfro steps down from The
School Board of Highlands
County next year she will have
completed 12 years of public
service.
In that time she has seen
many changes, and been the
catalyst behind some of them.
Not that she's a person tO toot
her own horn, Renfro makes it
clear she is part of a team. Still,
she takes pride in having helped
save tax payer's money.
For example. she'. did. the
research that lead the board to
change its policy regarding its
approach to construction con-
tracts.
"One thing we did accom-
plish was the school board
doing direct purchase orders for
materials on any construction of


any capital outlay, which saves
us sales tax," she said.
"Before, we would bid out
the whole project and thus,
when a contractor went and
bought two by
fours or ply-
wood, we had
to pay the sales .
tax (on those
materials).
Now, . a ,on-
tractor supplies
a list to the IRENFRO
school board
and the school board writes a
purchase order and saves the
,sales tax." .
According to Alan Parker,
coordinator of purchasing for
the school board, the district has
saved approximately $158,000
over the last seven years by
using the direct purchasing
orders.
Renfro found another saving


when she discovered the school
board was being charged tuition
for young students down in
Bassinger who went to school
in Okeechobee County.
They lived too far away to be
bussed to a Highlands County
school.
Okeechobee was already
receiving money from nThe state
for the students, so charging
Highlands County was double
dipping.
Renfro spent a year as the
chairman of the Florida School
Boards . Association's
Legislative Committee. When
the legislature was in session
. she lived in Tallahassee.
"I spent four months up
there. I actually had an apart-
ment. I would leave (home)
early Monday morning, get
there and head home Thursday
afternoon," she said.
The committee polled mem-


ber districts to find out what
issues concerned them, which
the legislature could address.
"We would take all that input
and divide it up into areas. We
would try to analyze whether it
would impact the majority of
the school districts or just a few,
because the association tried to
go-for things that benefited the
majority of the school dis-
tricts." she said.
"We would come up with a
platform of what we wanted to
fight for. Of course, number one
was always, money, especially
capital funding.
Renfro.. would s'. in on the
different committees, speak to
different committee people, and
try to maneuver legislation
through.
"You get caught up 'in (the
process)," she said. "Who can I
talk to? How can I get this


accomplished? You realize you
had some influence. That's one
of the positives (of being a
school board member), to make
things happen," she said.
Renfro still remembers when
she was "the new kid on the
block", and learning from peo-
ple like Dr. ... Fitzgerald. Now
she's the old timer, being the
longest member of the current
school board. She declared her
intention to retire early in order
to give a successor time to pre-
pare. She believes in the impor-
tance of continuity.
"I've got a lot of historical
' data in my braip," �he said with
a laugh. "There area lot of rea-
sons why we do things the way
we do them. If anybody has any
questions, they can feel free to
call me. I'll share what I think I
know about it." Then she
laughed harder.

SEBRING - Jimmie James,
lost on Lake Istokpoga since
Wednesday, was found . just
before dark Thursday..
Sheriff's Lt. Paul Blackman
said a volunteer noticed some-
thing at roughly 6:45-7 p.m. in
open water about 400-600
yards southward from the Lake
Boulevard boat ramp on the
east side of the lake.
Deputies and volunteers in
airboats and fixed-hull and pon-
toon outboard motorboats had
combed that area several times
while leaving and reporting
back to the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office mobile com-
mand center at the boat ramp.
Blackman said anyone sub-
merged in Lake Istokpoga's
dark waters is "impossible to
see" until they float back up to
the surface.
He said James' family was
there and could identify the
body. James' remains have been
sent to the medical examiner's
office in Lakeland to confirm
time and cause of death.
However, Blackman said there
were no signs of struggle or
wounds on the body.
"The family was relieved to
have closure," Blackman said.


Jimmie James, 64, went fish-
ing Wednesday rrorning and
didn't return. Other boaters on
the lake saw Jimmie James in
his blue and white Ranger bass
boat between 12:30-1 p.m. that
day. By 2:30-3 p.m., however,
his boat was seen deserted,
about three quarters of a mile
south of the boat ramp and 100
yards from the shore, Blackman
said.
All his gear, a favorite ball
cap, and a cooler cup full of soft
drink were still in the boat.
His wife, Bernetta James,
said he had diabetes, and need-
ed insulin four times each day.
They said he could only go
without it for four hours at a
time.
She and other family mem-
bers believe he may have had
an episode and fallen out of the
boat.
Blackman and his deputies
had help for two days from the
Polk County Sheriff's Office
helicopter and a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission airboat crew.
He also had help from citizen
volunteers in pontoon boat and
airboats: Jim Berry, David
Bertram, Ted Clay, Eric
Conklin, Jerry Fennell, Roger
Green, Vaughn Hathaway, and.

Davidson arrested for blowing through accident scene


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A driver who
blew through an accident scene
without slowing down is facing
a reckless driving charge, as
well as resisting an officer with-
out violence and fleeing or
attempting to elude.
John Ezman Davidson, 66, of
Avon Park, was arrested on
Tuesday, Oct. 11, after being
chased down by a Highlands
County sheriff's deputy. His
bond was set at $2,000.
At about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday,
Oct.11. .a ,henrff's deputyanda
_ -"Sebring police officer were
-"assisting lhe� Florida Highway
Patrol with a crash investiga-
tion by doing traffic control.


The two patrol cars were block-
ing the two outside lanes of
U.S. 27 and the intersection
with Oratige Avenue. Six traffic
cones were set up diagonally to
merge traffic into the inside
lane.
Davidson, arrest reports
state, was traveling north on
U.S. 27, approaching the acci-
dent scene at an estimated 55
mph, but wasn't slowing down.
Instead of merging into the
inside lane, reports said, he
merged into the right-hand turn
lane, and went straight through
the intersection \\ithouit lov.-
, 'ing down.:
'When the deputy saw
Davidson's car wasn't 'slowing
down, he stood in the road and


waved his arms in an attempt to
stop him, but he kept coming,
reports said.
At that same time, a pedestri-
an was about to step across the
road. The deputy yelled for the
pedestrian to move, and
Davidson narrowly missed hit-
ting the person, reports said.
According to reports, Davidson
would have hit the pedestrian if

stolen motorbike was in a mini-
warehouse on O-Mul-La-Oee
Street in Sebring. Witnesses
said Williams had put it there.
Allegedly,
he asked to
borrow the
keys to the
mini-ware-
house from the
S. renter to put
ABRAMCZYK some items in
it. Later, the
renter discov-
ered the dirt bike there, con-
fronted him about it and
allegedly learned he'd stolen it.
The renter
told Williams
move the dirt
S bike or get
, reported to
police.
Another wit-
WILLIAMS ness allegedly
saw Williams
riding the dirt bike down Maple
Street toward the Sebring
Parkway, just prior to the fire.
When asked about it by police,
Williams denied any knowl-
edge of the bike, arrest reports
said.


A third witness told police
about seeing Abramczyk walk- "
ing up to Williams' house with
a pair of tin snips and a piece of
tin off the shed that was later
burned.
Allegedly, Abramczyk asked
Williams to help him take a dirt
bike and told him he'd already
cut a hole in the shed.
Allegedly, Abramczyk handed
the piece of tin over to the wit-
ness, asking the person to get
rid of it, but was refused.
A fourth witness told police
about allegedly seeing
Abramczyk and Williams both
cutting a hole in the burglarized
and burnt shed, and taking a
motorcycle out of it.
According to arrest reports,
when police questioned
Abramczyk, he admitted to set-
ting the shed on fire by placing
a rag in the gas tank of an all-
terrain vehicle and lighting it on
fire. However, he denied having
anything to do with stealing the
dirt bike and said he was drunk
when he was talked into setting
the shed on fire to cover up the
theft.

S. families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town

and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Shinholser treated



at Shands' burn unit


Photos hv PHIL AlTTINGER/News-Sun


By PHIL ATTINGER

SEBRING - Judge . Olin
Shinholser won't be back in cir-
cuit court for a while.
On Friday, he was transferred
from Highlands Regional
Medical Center to Shands
Teaching Hospital at the
University of Florida Medical
Center in Gainesville.
He should be at home, being
a Florida Gator himself.,
When interviewed Friday
afternoon, Shinholser said he'd
had significant fever for at least
four days, and doctors believe
some of his bums may yet be
third-degree.
If so, they will require skin
grafts.
"We'll know in about two to


four days," he said.
The burn unit at Shands will
help treat the infection more
aggressively, Shinholser said.
At best, he's been told he'll be
gone for another two to six
weeks.

tion has also

surgery, but expects he may end
up having more than two.
Last Sunday, Shinholser was
burning brush and trash on his
property with an accelerant.
Some of the fluid or fumes must


have gotten under his feet and
ignited, he said.
The flames burned both legs
from the ankles up to his knees,
leaving second-degree, and
possibly third-degree bums.
He's running a fever and is in
a lot of pain, he said.
Having burnt legs didn't stop
him from putting in time on the
bench. Shinholser reported to
work Monday morning and
heard a full day of cases, leav-
ing at 5:10 p.m. He sat on the
bench Tuesday until noon,
when his ankles swelled up.
Only then did he go to the
hospital, after having fever for
three days. He's been under
observation ever since to moni-
tor a secondary infection.

put together pieces for region


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Florida
Association of Local Arts
Agencies (FALAA) conducted
a workshop on Oct. 8 at the Drs.
Thakkar Pavilion of Highlands
Little Theatre.

possible through support from
the Florida Department of State
Division of Cultural Affairs,
Florida Arts Council, National
Endowment for the Arts and
members of FALAA in cooper-
ation with the Heartland

ed by Sherron Long, chief oper-
ating officer of FALAA and
past president of the Florida

"Of course child safety is our

when the infinitesimal number

the policy was a positive one.
In the case of the boy who

Assessment
Clients get- referred through
other agencies, a judge or attor-
ney with either substance abuse
or a combination of addiction
and mental disorder. Clients fill
out an application and answer
questions on medical or physi-
cal problems.
The nursing supervisor and
- physician approve or deny peo-
ple based on medical condi-
tions. For example, they can't
help anyone with a feeding
tube. A client may have a
breathing tube, but must main-
tain it themselves.
Each client gets put in a
group of others with similar
problems, Olabarrieta said.
Kaufmann said clients usual-
ly are the best source of infor-
mation on their own problems,
especially substance abuse.
Moving in
-Clients must move in with
their personal belongings and
be searched for contraband.
They get a week of assessment
and an 18-page questionnaire,

Olabarrieta said.
They are not allowed a cellu-

Walden: Hate to leave Avon Park


-dow. Look for other adults, be
prepared to make noise. The
best defense, she explained, is
to walk or bike with other chil-
dren. "Strength lies in num-
bers," she said.
In the case of a particular
threat, like the one Cormier-
Wilson faces, Sauls urged par-
ents to get in touch with the law
enforcement agency in their
jurisdiction. "Let them know
what you're up against so extra
patrols can be put in place."
In those specific cases, how-
ever, she strongly urged parents
to accompany their children to.
school themselves, or find a
trusted adult who could do so.
Saundra Bass, chairwoman
of the District School Advisory
Council, said that several par-
ents had voiced complaints to
her. As a group that advises the
school board, part of DSAC's
responsibility is to listen to par-
ent concerns, she said. "It's a
tough decision. We could
review it."
Her best advise, she said,
was for concerned parents to
attend the regular school board
meetings, register to address
the board, and make their con-
cerns known directly, through
proper channels.


gram, Kaufmann said, is no
guarantee of success.
If someone is still drug free
after a year, Olabarrieta said,
that's successful. The best help
is getting someone into a
halfway house for 90 days -
some kind of after-care pro-
gram.
Basically, they have structure
in their lives if they stick with
it, Olabarrieta said. It costs
money, she said, but noted it's a
lot cheaper to get healthy than
to commit crimes.

Force" Range sustained some
damage froni one or all of the
three hurricanes that hit. People
who worked there had personal
property damage, too.
Despite this, the base only
lost three days of operations,
which drew compliment from
Lt. Col. David B. Hume, deputy
commander of the- 18th Air
Support Operations Group.


By PHIL ATIINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - "Time goes
by so fast," Lt. Col. Franklin
"Stamp" Walden said Friday,
addressing his command for the
last time.
He said it seems only two
months ago that he took over
for Lt. Col. Earle "Snake"
Thompson on May 13, 2003.
"I tried to stay longer,"
Walden said. "I really didn't
want to leave."
Walden will be leaving
before the end of the year to
head to North Carolina as he
retires from the Air Force.
He said Avon Park Air Force
Range is perhaps the best com-
mand an officer can have. It
incorporates an air base, wing
command, range command, fire
operations and timber opera-
tion.
To do it well, Walden said he,
a former pilot, had to rely on the
expertise of his staff and per-
sonnel, including -the range
manager, the environmental
flight chief, and the fire chief.
Even the contractors worked so
well witli him, he could not tell
them 'from the civil servants.
He also thanked the countless
volunteers: "We couldn't run
this place without them."
In October 2003, he was
given a new mission to bring
the range in as part of the air
support group, and then in April
2004, a lot of on-base work was
contracted out.
Then, from Aug. 13 to Sept.
27, 2004, every structure or
facility at the Avon Park Air


Still, the U.S. Navy has
stepped up its training, and
more of the range is being used,
Walden said. His personnel
have revamped or replaced
every-target array on the range.
During his command, the old
wood and metal bridge over
Arbuckle Creek was replaced
with a steel, concrete and
asphalt structure.
By spring 2006, he said, all


of the buildings on the base will
be refurbished, rebuilt or
demolished.
"We have really come close
to a first-class range," he said.
. There is still work to be
done, he said. The range needs
fighter jets on the ground more
often for ground crews to get
training. Airfield lighting needs
to be updated, too.


RANGE
Continued from 1A
operations level it needs to be to
provide joint-operations train-
ing between the branches of the
military for use in the global
war on terrorism. Walden is
retiring from the Air Force and
will be moving to North
Carolina.
He said joint-operations
training has been a huge suc-
cess wand that will put Avon
Park Air Force Range "on the
map for a long time."
"Avon Park brings all the
branches together," Pechiney
said Friday, adding that it must
be snowing in Yuma because he
never thought he would live to
see a base command.
Pechiney is very impressed
with Avon Park Air Force
Range, also called Detachment
1 of the 18th Air Support
Operations Group, and can't
wait to work with everyone
there.
He thanked Walden for
building a great command,
Hume for picking him for the
job, his parents - John and
Margaret Pechiney - for
attending the Change of
Command ceremony, friend
Susan Serena for helping
arrange the, ceremony, and his
daughter, Gabrielle: "You are
� the peach in my life."
Pechiney was commissioned
a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S.
Marine Corps on April 16,
1982, and spent seven years fly-
ing A-4M Skyhawks as both an
air-to-ground and air-to-air
instructor pilot.
SHe served in various
- sq-idron billets while deploy-
ing 'Nvice to the western Pacific


with the World Famous
Tomcats - Marine Attack
Squadron 311 at Marine Corps
Air Station El Toro, Calif. -
and completed his service with
the Marines while assigned to
the 1st Battalion, 7th Marine
Regiment at Camp Pendleton,
Calif., as a forward air con-
troller.
He joined the U.S. Air Force
in August 1989, and has served
tours of duty as an F-111 F pilot
stationed at RAF Lakenheath,
England, research pilot flying
Saberliners at Wright-Patterson
Air Force Base, Ohio,- and two
assignments flying the F-l117


Stealth Fighter at Holloman
AFB, New Mexico. He has also
served as a staff officer at the
Pentagon working in the
Secretary of Air Force's
International Affairs Division.
His last assignment was with
the 19th Air Support Operations
Squadron, 101st Airborne
Division at Fort Campbell,
Kent. He served as director of
operations and the division's air
liaison officer.
Pechiney is a graduate of the
Army's Air Assault School, and'
holds both a bachelor's, and
master's degree in business.

TOFFIN9 OT

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


Staying fit

the hard way

Entering the American
Recycling Center, 215 Ranier
Drive, Lake Placid is like
landing on the surface of a
strange, distant planet with a
surface made of metal.
A narrow car lane snakes
between mountains of twisted
aluminum, jutting with jagged
edges and angles. Old ladders,
awnings, flag poles, lawn
chairs, walkers, window
frames and even small alu-
minum boats are piled high
overhead.
I was glad when Roger
Keyes, who with his family
owns and operates the busi-
ness, wouldn't let me actually
work.
It is just too dangerous, he
said, too many sharp edges
and metal splinters to worry
about. Even wearing heavy
gloves not a day goes by, but
someone gets cut. Then there's
the danger of shifting metal,
and setting off a landslide.
I say I was glad, because
keeping up with Keyes was tir-
ing enough.
The day was hot, the sun
beat down; even my bald spot
got sunburned.
Trucks and cars came in a'
steady stream. We never
slowed down and were con-
stantly on our feet, because
there was always something
else to do.
The work is hard physical
labor.. It takes a strong-back;

Protect tomorrow today by recycling


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Roger
Keyes and his family have been
operating the American
Recycling Center since 1994.
His parents, Paul "Cowboy"
and Evelyn Keyes, had arrived
in Highlands County in 1985
ready to retire. But two years of
idyllic life at a fish camp had
left them bored to death, and
they decided to go back to
work.
They took their time consid-
ering possible options. While
the family had done auto sal-
vage up in their home state of
Ohio, they decided in 1994 to
try recycling aluminum instead.
They figured it would be easier
work.
"I thought," Evelyn Keyes
said, "you know, a few cans
here and there, but it didn't turn
out that way.
"It looks simple to someone
watching, but it's a constant
battle every day! It keeps you so
busy, you don't have time to
think about what comes next."
In fact, the cans come in by
the ton, and they are the least of
it. The Keyes have had to learn
how to sort more than 1,000 dif-
ferent classifications of alu-
minum.
Then there is the hard physi-
cal labor of moving all the
metal around. They work all
day long, and are often too busy
to take lunch breaks. It has been
five years since they've taken a
vacation.
Roger Keyes runs the opera-
tion now, following the death of
his father to cancer.
"It gets in the blood," he said
about the work. Now he can't
imagine doing anything' differ-
ent.

Because of that, "I haven't
changed weight since high
school," Keyes said.
I can think of easier ways to
keep a trim waist, like doing
1,000 sit ups a day.
American Retycling is a
secondary processor, because
its function is to collect the
raw material and deliver it to
the companies which process
it.
Most of the work at the cen-
ter has to do with weighing,
sorting, and preparing loads for
transport.
As customers arrive with


aluminum to recycle, they
unload it onto a scale. There
are different scales placed
around the yard, for large
pieces, or smaller ones, and
one just for cans.
Many of the items brought
in have to be cut into smaller
pieces, so workers have to be
able to use chop saws and
torches.
It turns out aluminum comes
in a variety of grades and clas-
sifications. Not only that, but
some types of aluminum have
different compositions, where
other elements, like magne-
sium are sometimes added.
Keyes says there are 1,100 dif-
ferent classifications. He has
had to memorize them all.


Evelyn Keyes, who enjoys working at a time most people are retired,
weighs in a load of aluminum cans. She reports one customer takes
the money he gets from recycling and puts it directly into his grand-
son's college fund. "It can add up," she said.


RECYCLING

work. It's not hard to own, but it's hard to run. Basically, the busi-
ness owns you."
Ameridan Recycling Center is at 215 Ranier Ave. It is open from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon
Saturday. For more information or. prices call 699-2757 or 441-
3189.


Fork lifts are used for mov-
ing the heavier pieces. Sorting
and loading the bale machine
are mostly done by hand.
Bales are roughly rectangu-
lar and all the same size, about
four feet high and deep, and
three feet wide, but they weigh
different amounts - anywhere
from 1,000 to 2,400 pounds
apiece.
The baling machine is fed
from the front. It compresses
the aluminum and secures it
with metal ties. Keyes'
machine, in a nice touch, is run
by a recycled golf ball retriev-
er.
Then the bales are loaded by
forklift onto a truck, and Keyes
drives them to a primary
processor.
Currently he has to travel to
Tampa, as there are no primary
processors closer.
For that matter, Keyes says
his business is the only volume
aluminum recycling center in
the county.
Cans are handled separately.
After being weighed in, they
are dumped onto a metal con-
veyer machine which delivers'
them to a crushing machine.
That machine also has a mag-
net which separates out all
non-aluminum cans as they
pass through. Then it spits out
the crushed cans into a large
caged trailer, which has sides
about eight feet high. The trail-
er can hold up to 7,000 pounds
of crushed cans. Those are then
baled for transport to a primary
processor.
Keyes said that cans are
made thinner now, it takes
about 33.7 cans to equal a
pound. Multiply 7,000 pounds
by 33.7 cans, and that means
the trailer holds about 235,900
cans. In season the trailer is .
filled, every week, in summer
about every 10 days.
Consider that Keyes reports
we only save about 20 percent
of recyclable material, and it
begins to sink in how much
soda and beer we drink.
Now that's staying fit the
hard way.

Tuffley has fun clowning

Day care owner welcomes


children with lots of love


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Carmen Vance-Tirado loves kids
and that compassion has brought her to open a
day care.
"I have an 11-year-old .daughter, and was a
'substitute teacher at Fred Wild Elementary and
Sebring Middle School. When I decided to use
my home as a registered family day care, it came
under the jurisdiction of the DCF (Department of
Children & Families.) An FBI and background
check was automatically required. I believe that
if a child is in a safe, warm, happy, and nurturing
environment, that child will thrive," Vance-
Tirado said.
Her day care will be operated out of her home.
"I only take in a total of five children. Since it
is in my own home, I feel I give a higher level of
care and personalized, one-on-one attention
because I am a small facility. I teach learning
activities, prereading, writing, and hands-on
activities that are age appropriate," Vance-Tirado
said.
Vance-Tirados curriculum emiiphj'izes pre-
reading and writing, 'math, science,>geography


knowledge, music, art and development of motor
and self-help skills. Once children start in ele-
meniarN school , the emphasis is on testing to see
v. here the\ stand
"I hope to give them a good foundation,"
Vance-Tirado said.
She accepts students with the Early Learning
Coalition voucher program, which is a state-
funded scholarship for children that the govern-
ment pays.
Vance-Tirado's hobby is cooking, and she's
won first, second and third in local cooking con-
tests.
"I've won for my corned beef brisket and my
daughter has won for her Mexican picadillo. I'm
best at the main dishes. At Vance-Tirado
Registered Home Day Care, I provide the pre-
scribed USDA (United States Department of
Agriculture) food pyramid and I serve nutritious
meals for breakfast, lunch, and a snack," Vance-
Tirado said.
Vance-Tirado Registered Day Care is at 1912
Steiner Ave. It is behind Fred Wild Elementary
School and Sebring High School. Call 314-0369
to register a child. Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Harris fail

By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
Al' Political lVriter
TALAHASSEE - U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris failed to hit the
million dollar mark in her U.S.
Senate campaign during the
futndhaising quarter that ended in
September, while incumbent Bill
Nelson exceeded $2 million.
Harris, though, said she was
not concc! ned about her first
quarter in the race, saying she
was concentrating on building
her finance team and grass roots
organization.
"It would have been nice to
have raised more, but that wasn't
at all our focus this quarter," said
Harris. The campaign doesn't
have-a final figure for the quarter
-yet. but it won't hit $1 million.

Harris also said she suspend-
ed fundraising at Gov. Jeb Bush's
request after Hurricane Katrina
hit New Orleans and Mississippi,
and a Mississippi.company she
uses for direct mail contribution
requests was shut down by the
storm. Several events are being
rescheduled for this quarter.
"We have over $2 million in
commitments and we have col-
lected over half of that already"
this quarter, she said, adding
that by the November 2006 elec-
tion, "We will be at or over $20
million."
The failure to raise an eye-pop-
ping amount of money for a seat.
Republicans think is winnable
also may be blamed in part on


recordation for The Bluffs on
Red Beach Lake.

White House and other GOP
efforts to recruit another candi-
date into the race.
"You have this uncertainty.
People will not contribute money
in times of uncertainty," said
Darryl Paulson, a University of
South Florida political science
professor.
Carol Weissert, a Florida State
University professor, agreed that
questions about GOP support for
Harris may have caused hesitan-
cy among donors, but said it's
too early to tell whether Harris
will have problems.
"If underachieving is apparent
in the next quarter, that will be
much better indication," she
said.

Hurricane dislodged coffins 'nd


scattered bodies across Louisiana


By DOUG SIMPSON
Associated Press Writer
DELCAMBRE, La. - First
the floodwaters dislodged mas-
sive burial vaults from the
earth. Then the vaults yawned
open, and out floated hundreds
of coffins. And when the coffins
opened, their contents drifted
away, too. I
Along with the despair they
brought to the living.
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
also evicted the
dead from what
were supposed to
be their final rest-
ing places, scatter-
ing skeletal 4
remains across the
region in a ghastly
spectacle.
Now forensic
anthropologists are
busy trying to iden-
tify the remains
and return them to
their graves, some of which
date to the 19th century.
In Delcambre, a small town
about 125 miles west of New
Orleans, people who evacuated
to escape Rita returned to find
caskets and tombs on sidewalks
and on top of trucks.
"You come home and see
coffins in the road, tombs in the
road. It was crazy," said
Sylvester Harris, who lives
across the street from a Roman
Catholic cemetery.
In all, the state health depart-
ment said it ,has learned of
about 1,000 coffins dislodged
by the storms, not all of them
found yet.
"I'm assuming we'll find
some up in the backwoods,
pretty far from where they
belong," Dr. Louis Cataldie, a
health department physician'
leading the recovery and identi-
fication effort.
Every parish along
Louisiana's coast has reported
burial vaults picked up and
moved by storm waters, either
after Katrina hit Aug. 29, or
after Rita struck on Sept. 24,
Cataldie said.
In Loutisa, a remote commu-
= nity near the Gulf Coast, small


St. Helen's Cemetery was
among the hardest hit: About 60
tombs were pulled -from their
plots. Sheriff David Naquin
said. About a dozen blocked a
highway before they were
moved by sheriff's deputies.
The coroner and morticians
are working to match the vaults
and coffins with their burial
plots.
"It's like putting a jigsaw
puzzle together," Naquin said.


"We still have some pieces
missing."
Coffins in southern
Louisiana are traditionally
placed inside massive concrete
vaults, which often are set only
a foot or two into the earth -
partly because coastal towns are
on marshy land only a few feet
above sea level. Spouses.often
purchase double vaults: If the
husband is buried first, the lid
of the vault can later be lifted
and the wife's coffin set along-


Hurricane Rita brought a
powerful storm surge of up to 9
feet to Louisiana. forcing vaults
out of the ground and pulling
their lids. Naquin said several
vaults weighing an estimated
600 pounds were found nearly a
half-mile from St. Helen's
Cemetery.
His deputies gathered up
skeletal remains and handed
them over to the parish coroner.
"It wasn't fun, I
can tell you," Naquin
said.
The remains are
being analyzed at the
same morgue set up
in the town of St.
SGabriel to handle the
corpses of the more
than 1,000 people
killed by Katrina.
"A lot of these
folks have been cas-
keted for a long time, so we've
only got bones to deal with,"
Cataldie said. "Evidently, it's
not mandatory to place identifi-
cation inside the casket, which
was news to me. That's not
helping."
The anthropologists are look-
ing for such things as identify-
ing pieces of jewelry and are
also taking X-rays, examining
the teeth and extracting DNA in
hopes of putting names on the
dead.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Discerning

what's best
Sometimes I mils the
child rearing years; espe-
cially when I gain insight
into truth I lacked before.
Armed with new informa-
tion, I wish I could start
over. Hindsight's a great
teacher.
A few months ago, in
preparation for facilitating a
parenting class, we began
studying the parenting role
in earnest. Self-examination
has been unavoidable.
Parents need to discern
between the warring opin-
ions and values of the cul-
ture and the true values and
principles God has given
for training children. Some
situations aren't specifically
addressed in Scripture. But,
as students of God's Word
and his ways, we can learn
to be discerning guides for
our children.
When our oldest son
wanted to buy a car while
still in high school, we
assessed the situation, con-
sidering our finances and
what it would mean for him
to pursue this responsibility
at that time. Would it be
best for him?
We suggested that he
continue to let us get him to
his activities while he
remained active in school
and sports. We explained
he'd have to work after
school to buy a car and give
up basketball.
"You can't do both.
Eventually, you'll always be
a driver; but, you won't
always be a high school stu-
dent and play basketball.
Why not wait another year
or so."
He chose delayed gratifi-
cation and enjoyed his high
school years. Working odd
jobs, he saved enough for a
car just before graduation.
As predicted, he's still driv-
ing; but with happy memo-
ries of carefree school days.
The Lord honored our
desire to guide and protect
our son.
I was surprised to see this
illustrated in the story of
Mary, Joseph and Jesus
leaving Egypt after they had
fled there to save the child
Jesus from King Herod's
murderous intent.
Herod had died and an
angel of God appeared to
Joseph in a dream advising
him to take the young child
and his mother back to
Israel. Joseph obeyed.
In the next part of the
story, I saw how when we
listen to God's voice, stay
alert to our surroundings
and circumstances, God
gives us discernment in our
judgments and decisions.
Speaking of Joseph, the
Scriptures say, "But when
he heard that Archelaus was
reigning over Judea instead
of his father Herod, he was
afraid to go there, And
being warned by God in a
dream he turned aside into
the region of Galilee."
(Matthew 2: 22, NKJV)
Joseph's intuitive concern
as the provider and protec-
tor of his young family was
met by God wvho once again
gave him direction. So, they
went to Nazareth and ful-
filled prophecy regarding
Jesus, "He shall be called a
Nazarene." (vs. 23b).
We are co-laborers with
God. When we seek him, he
helps us discern what is
best for our families and his
plan is fulfilled. Selah.

DIVERSIONS



Testing parental limits part of development


Question: My little boy
always wants to know just how
far I will let him go. Once he
has tested me and found I'm
serious about what I say, he'll
usually cooperate at that point.
What is going on in his mind?
Dr. Dobson: Your child, like
most other kids, has a great
need to know where behavioral
boundaries are and who has the
courage to enforce them. Let
me illustrate how that works.
Years ago, during the early
days of the progressive educa-
tion movement, an enthusiastic
theorist decided to take down
the chain-link fence that sur,
rounded a nursery school yard.
He thought the children would
feel more freedoms of move-
ment without that visible barri-
er surrounding them. When the
fence was removed, however,
the boys and girls huddled near
the center of the play yard. Not
only did they not wander away;
they didn't even venture to the
edge of the grounds. Clearly,
there is a security for all of us in
defined boundaries. That's why
a child will push a parent to the
point of exasperation at times.
He's testing the resolve of his
parents and exploring the limits
of his world.
Do you want further evi-
dence of this motivation?
Consider the relationships with-
in a family where the dad is a
firm but loving disciplinarian,

Man wants his
Dear Abby:
I am a successful man with a
great marriage, four terrific
children - all grown with pro-
fessional careers - and beautiful
grandchildren. I am very close
to all of them.
Before I married my wife -
while still in college 30 years
ago - I had a short affair with a
young woman at school. I
recently ran into her, and she
informed me that I have anoth-
er child - a grown daughter I'll
call "Eden." It was the first I'd
heard of it. She never contacted,
- me. I saw Eden, and she is the
spitting image of my mother. I
spoke to her, but I was still in
shock and didn't know what to
say. Her mother introduced me
as "an old boyfriend."
I have been in contact with
the mother since then. Although
she doesn't want me to divulge
"our secret," she, did ask if I


the mother is indeci-
sive and weak, and
the child is a strong-
willed spitfire.,
Notice how the
mother is pushed,
challenged, sassed,
disobeyed and insult-
ed, but the father can
bring order with a
word or two. What is FO(
going on here?
Simply that the, child ON
understands and Fn
accepts Dad's
strength. The limits Dr. Ja
'are clear. There is no Dob
reason to test him --
again. But Mom has
established no rules, and she is
fair game for a fight - every day
if necessary.
The very fact that your child
accepts the boundaries you
have set tells you that he or she
respects you. But that youngster
will test the outer limits occa-
sionally to see if the fence is'
still there.
Question: My 5-year-old is a
rambunctious kid who gives us
fits. There are times when I
think he's trying to take over
the entire family. I've never
really understood him before,
but I guess he.just doesn't want
anyone telling him what to do.
Dr. Dobson: That is precise-
ly how he feels. It is surprising
how commonly this 'basic
impulse of children is over-

about this. They are

looked. Indeed, I
think the really tough
kids understand the
_ struggle for control
even better than their
parents, who are
-, bogged down with
adult responsibilities
and worries.
Children devote
US their primary effort to
the power game,.
HE while we grown-ups
|,y play only when we
must. Sometime you
mes might ask a group of
3on children about the
- adults who lead them.
They will instantly
tell you, with one voice, which
grown-ups are skilled in han-
dling them and which aren't.
Every schoolchild can name the
teachers who are in control and
those who are intimidated by
kids.
One father overheard his 5-
year-old daughter, Laura, say to
her little sister who was doing
something wrong: ""Mmmm,
I'm going to tell Mommy on
you. No! I'll tell Daddy. He's
worse!" Laura had evaluated
the authority of her two parents
and concluded that one was
more effective than the other.
This same child was
observed by her father to have
become especially disobedient
and defiant. She was irritating
other family members and look-


ing for ways to avoid minding
her parents. Her dad decided
not to confront her directly, but
to punish her consistently for
every offense until she settled
down. Thus, for three or four
days, he let Laura get away with
nothing. She was spanked,
stood in the corner and sent to
her bedroom. Near the end of
the fourth day, she was sitting
on the bed with her father and
younger sister. Without provo-
cation, Laura pulled the hair of
the toddler who was looking at
a book. Her dad promptly
thumped her on the bottom with
his large hand. Laura did not
cry, but sat in silence for a
moment or two, and then said,
"Hurrummph! None of my
tricks are working!"
This is the conclusion you
want your strong-willed son to
draw: "It's too risky to take on
Mom or Dad, so let's get with
the program."

* This is the second of a three-part series on edi-
ble landscaping.

Many plants have natural substances in their
roots, flowers, leaves etc. that can alternately
repel (antifeedents) and/or attract insects depend-
ing on your needs. In some situations they can
help enhance the growth rate and flavor of other
varieties. Companion planting throughout the
landscape is an important part of inte-
grated pest management. In essence, .
companion planting helps bring a bal-
ance ecosystem to your landscape, -"
allowing nature to do its, jobs.
By companion planting, many gar-
deners find that they can discourage
harmful pest without losing the benefi-
cial allies. There are many varieties of
herbs, and flowers that can be used for
companion plants. Be"'operi to experi- ' ,R
meeting andfind out what works for SE
you. Some possibilities would be using
certain plants as a border, backdrop or
interplanting in your flower or veg- High
etable bed where you have specific County
needs. Use plants that are native to Gard
your area so the insects you want to
attract already know what to look for. Plants with
open cup shaped flowers are the most popular
with beneficial insects.
Companion planting can combine beauty and
purpose to give you an enjoyable, healthy envi-
ronment. Let your imagination soar. There are
many ways you can find to incorporate these use-
ful plants in your garden, orchard, and flower
beds.
Place plants that share the same diseases and
insect pest away from each other, and select com-
panion choices known to deter pest. Marigolds,
nasturtiums and many herbs have aromatic
foliage that is not attractive to bugs. The general
idea is to camouflage, confuse and repel with


with. revolutionaries and palace
intrigue; the Terence Blacker
humorous tale 'Boy2Girl,"
where the prank of dressing as a
girl gets out of hand; Benjamin
Zephaniah's book, "Gangsta
Rap," a realistic take on rap
bands and gang warfare; or
"Tammar Stein's Light Years,"
dealing with getting on in life
after the death of a boyfriend,
and more.

smell and /or biting juices. Mix flowers and herbs
with vegetables plantings create more flowers -
flowers produce more pollen and nectar and
attract predator insects.
Here are some helpful hints for companion
plants:
* Don't plant eggplant with tomatoes or pota-
toes.
* Plant garlic or garlic chives around anything
and everything but beans
* Don't plant pepper with tomatoes
or cukes (they share diseases like
tobacco mosaic and cucumber mosaic).
E Don't plant potatoes with toma-
toes (they share a blight).
* Plant tomatoes away from corn,
potatoes, peppers, eggplant, fennel and
kohlrabi (they share pest). '"
Never plant:
IING . Carrots, cauliflower or potatoes
SON with tomatoes.
E Carrots with dill
- Asparagus with chives, fennel or
hands garlic
Master , 0 Potatoes with pumpkin and sum-.
Fners mer squash or peas with onion, garlic
and shallots.
Are you sold on the idea of an edible landscape
yet? Or at least you're more curious about it.
Next, find out what type of edible plants will do
well in your Florida zone and look great in your
landscape. First, think about your existing land-
scape. Maybe you'd like to plant some fruit trees
near your patio or front porch. Not a bad idea, but
you'll need to consider the amount of fruit that
might wind up onryour walks and paths. A possi-
ble solution is to keep your fruit trees in contain-
ers.

"It. was a pleasure to read
something so different", said
the teen that nominated "Saving
Francesca" by Melina
Marchetta, for the Teens' Top
Ten book list. This story deals
with a 16-year-old whose
parochial school has just turned
coed. Adding to her problems is
life with a suddenly severely
depressed mom.
The favorite teenage books


aren't all fiction.
Marilyn Nelson's
poetic "A Wreath for
Emmett Till," tells
the story of a 14-year-
old African American
boy living in
Mississippi, lynched
in 1955 for supposed-
ly whistling at a white
woman. The brutality
of his murder, the
open-casket funeral
held by his mother,
and the acquittal of
the men tried for the


crime drew wide media atten-
tion. In a profound and chilling
poem, award-winning poet
Marilyn Nelson reminds us of
the boy whose fate helped spark
the civil rights movement.
Both Sebring and Lake
Placid libraries will have a book
display of the nominated books,
to make it easier to pick one (or
more) out. We hope a number of
teenagers will take home these
titles, but they aren't just for
young people., Many of the


same themes and story lines
will dredge up memories of our
own teen years and the anxi-
eties, pressures, and daydreams
we all coped with in junior and
senior high school.
Many teenagers will also
enjoy the collections of Manga
books and graphic novels.
Graphic novels can tell serious
stories, but in comic book form.
Award-winning storyteller Neil
Gaiman's Sandman series is
one of most respected in this
field.

An inspirational thought

I Corinthians 10:13 says.
"There Iathl no temptation
S taken you but such as is
. - cotton to Inan: but God is
, .. , faithful, who .-will not suffer you
to be tempted above that ye are
Sable: but will with the-
tenmptation also make a way to
escape that ye may) be able to
bear it." Know for yourself, in whatever situation
you are facing today, your way of escape has
already been made. victory can be ours if we apply
what the Word of God is saying to us. W\'e are not
going to be tempted above which we are able. W\'e
go through different tests in order for the Lord to
make its the person lie wants its to be. In our test \We
must' wait on the Lord. When li he brings us out, we
know we have tlie victory At times during our
testing, we want to rush to thie finish, but tihe Lord
is still working on us. Rushing our way out could
only make the test longer. When the flesh is
tempted, we imnust stand on God's Word. Let's
remember what the WI'ord says to us. our escaped is
already made, so go through your test. and see the
victor)' that waits for you at the end. Front my' heart
to yours. Be Encouraged!:.

Sagittarius: Don't use work to avoid problems at home


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- Cooler weather has put you
in a mood. You might want to
spend some time at home,
Aries, until you're in better
spirits. Post-summer blues are
expected.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Financial concerns leave you
feeling nervous this week,
Taurus. It's better to pinch some
pennieA for a while until you get
back on course. Seek help from
Virgo.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)


- A special friend from your
past comes back for a visit,
Gemini. It could lead to inter-
esting things. Keep your agenda
open for Wednesday when love
is in your stars.

Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- Keep your patience with a
family member on Tuesday,
Cancer. This person is just feel-
ing a little stir crazy and really
doesn't mean all the the things
he/she says. Focus on a home
project instead.


Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) - A
distant family member isn't vis-
iting as much as usual, Leo.
Something could be wrong.
Drop this person a line or give
him/her a call. It may help ease
your concerns.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Stop doing so much for oth-
ers and pamper yourself a little
bit this week, Virgo. Go to a
spa, take a vacation or just stay
home from work for a day.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)
- You've been feeling very


anxious, Libra, and it's partially
because you are experiencing
low self-esteem. You have to
exert more confidence or it just
will be an endless cycle.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- A close friend really needs
your help on Thursday, Scorpio.
Make sure your schedule is
open so that you can lend a
hand. Put work on hold for
some quality time with your
mate.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - Have you been spending.


too much time at work,
Sagittarius? It could be because
you are avoiding a situation at
home. That's not like you. Face
up to the situation. It's far better
to be honest with yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - It may be time to consid-
er a career change, Capricorn.
You are far too educated and
talented to settle for the work
you've been doing so far. Have
some confidence and go for
your dreams.


Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- Your confidence continues to
. rise, Aquarius. It could be
because of that good news at
work. Consult with Leo for
some good advice on how to
improve your financial future.

Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- Be the life of the party on
Friday, Pisces and you just may
hook up with a winning
romance. Look to Scorpio for
some inspiration and compan-
ionship and sparks will fly.

Gopher tortoises dig their way through


The gopher tortoise is one of
four tortoises in North America.
It is the only species east of the
Mississippi and is mostly found
in Georgia and Florida. Gopher
tortoises only live in areas of
sandy soil with an herbaceous
understory and open canopy
(biologists call it scrub habi-
tat).
Unfortuffately gopher tor-
toise habitat is rapidly declining
because the land is prime real
estate for humans as well as
gopher tortoises. In Florida
alone, populations have plum-
meted by as much as 80 per-
cent. Except for populations on
protected lands, some
researchers predict gopher tor-
toises could be eliminated from
the state by the year 2025.
Gopher tortoises excavate
burrows. In fact, you are more
likely to see the burrow than the
tortoise. Spotting burrow
entrances is easy due to the
piled up sand called aprons that
result from the excavation.
These burrows are extremely
important for their survival
since the temperatures under-
ground remains relatively sta-
ble. This allows the gopher tor-
toise a reprieve from the heat.
There is usually one entrance
per burrow; however, a tortoise
often has more than one burrow.


A gopher tortoise burrow can be
up to 40 feet long and 10 feet
deep.
The burrows also are
extremely important to other
animal species that share the
gopher tortoise's habitat. More
than 80 different species are
known to use gopher tortoise
burrows. Not only do these
"commensals" peacefully co-
exist with the tortoise in his
underground lair, many are
dependent on the burrow for
their own survival. The list
includes the indigo snake, pine
snake, gopher frog, Florida
mouse, opossum, armadillo,
burrowing owl, gopher cricket,
scarab beetles, and many oth-
ers. Some, such as the Florida
mouse, cannot exist without the
tortoise burrow. In addition,
more than 20 species of animals
inhabiting scrub are listed as
rare, endangered, threatened or
species of special concern by
federal or state agencies.
Therefore, preserving the
gopher tortoise habitat benefits
many other species at risk of
disappearing forever.
Gopher tortoises eat low
growing herbaceous plants such
as gopher apple, pawpaw,
blackberries, saw palmetto
berries and other fruits. If you
have gopher tortoises living on


your property, land-
scaping with native
plants will ensure
that proper food is
available.
Gopher tortoises
are long-lived and are
thought to live in
excess of 60 years.
Females don't reach
adulthood until 10-15 NEWS
years of age and pos- I
sibly as long as 21
years in Georgia. At WATEI
maturity, male can be
distinguished from Jennf
females by a concave
lower shell (plas-
tron). Adult gopher
tortoises typically breed from
April to June. During May and
June females lay three to 15
eggs either in the apron of the
burrow or in another nearby
sunny place. Females usually
produce one clutch per year.
The eggs incubate from 80 to
90 days in Florida. Nest preda-
tion is often high, so high that a
female may only produce a suc-
cessful nest as infrequently as
once in 10 years. Nest predators
include raccoons, foxes,
armadillos and fire ants.'
Hatchling gopher tortoises
may use an adult burrow or dig
a small burrow of their own.
Young gopher tortoises are vul-
nerable to predation until their

shell hardens at about
six to seven years of
age. Raccoon, indigo
snake, black bear,
and red-tailed hawk,
among others, eat
hatchlings and young
tortoises. Adult tor-
toises have few ene-
mies other than
humans, although
domestic dogs and
raccoons are known
to eat them.
Gopher tortoises
are afforded different
levels of legal protec-
tion throughout their
range. A permit is
required to possess,
or relocate gopher tor-
In the 1980s, Florida


outlawed the harvest of tortois-
es, banned the use of gasoline to
collect rattlesnakes from gopher
tortoise burrows, and banned
tortoise races. For more infor-
mation about relocation permits
contact the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission or visit the Web
site wildflorida.org/permits. If
you need to relocate fewer than
five animals on-site there is an
online application available.
You may have seen the recent
advertisement that our office
has a Soil Tunnel available by
request for elementary aged


groups. A trained staff member
(Jennifer Donze) who presents
a dynamic lesson transports the
display to schools. The Soil
Tunnel was constructed to
allow children to get a view of
an underground world. As chil-
dren crawl through-the tunnel (a
large conference table) roots
and carrots dangle overhead
while side panels display soil
, horizons, a well, a septic sys-


tem, and a gopher tortoise bur-
row with insects and animals
that live inside. To request the
Soil Tunnel give me a call at
402-6545.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



Celebrity waitressing - a new hat to wear


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Other viewpoints

The odds are unimaginable, even in a state known for
lightning strikes. Unfortunately, the-long odds bore trag-
ic results this week as a bolt of lightning struck and killed
someone at a high school football game.
The sudden strike killed a Monarch High School foot-
ball player, 15-year-old Schaffner Noel, and injured sev-
eral other students. It also left Broward County school
officials with the issue of how to do a better job of detect-
ing potential lightning strikes.
School officials can make an argument that their cur-
rent policy is adequate. The technology isn't perfect, and
many lightning detection devices are at best inconsistent
if not flat-out unreliable.
However, that didn't stop the district from purchasing
40 hand-held detection devices two years ago at $400
apiece. The devices, though, were later discarded after
principals and athletic directors complained that they
simply didn't work.
Given more pressing needs, ranging from class space
to the ongoing quest to hire and retain competent teach-
ers, district officials can be excused for falling back on
an older and seemingly reliable alternative in detecting
lightning strikes: eyes and ears.
The Palm Beach County School District is content
with the portable lightning detection devices it purchased
for its schools, but many cities in Broward County rely
on more expensive equipment.
A thorough review could result in a better w.ay to
detect lightning strikes and improve the odds against
another tragedy.
School officials must re-evaluate their policy to
improve odds of averting another tragedy.

An editorial excerpt from the South Florida Sun-
Sentinel.

Everyone else has known it for months, but President
Bush finally admitted it last week: ,
His disastrous plan to privatize Social Security is dead.
Good riddance, we say.
After 60 days of road trips earlier this year, with Bush
trying tq pcopvince the public that sending your Social
Security, contributions to Wall Street was a great idea,
' pblls consistently showed a significant majority of
Americans were against it.'
The idea bombed with many Republicans in Congress
as well.
To save face, Bush says he'll revisit it later.
He shouldn't bother.
The people have already seen through this scheme,
which would put billions in commissions into the finan-
cial industry's pockets while cutting deeply into the
average person's pensions.
And even those who haven't studied the ugly details
knew one thing - turning reliable Social Security into a
roll-the-dice gamble is not the way to plan for retirement.
We do agree with Bush on one point:
As demographics change, adjustments must be made.
to Social Security, as they have been since the program
was enacted in 1935.
To that end, Congress should consider sensible possi-
bilities that include:
Raising to $140,000 the current $90,000 cap on annu-
al taxable wages; raising the wage tax from 6.2 percent
to 6.45 percent; putting all state and local (government)
workers into the system; or putting a small portion of the
Social Security Trust fund into a stock-index fund.
As we've been saying all along, fix Social Security,
don't kill it.

An editorial excerpt from the Florida Today.

... Immigration reform is like a puzzle with five
extraordinarily difficult pieces to fit.
The first is the scope of the problem: What does the
U.S. do with the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants
already here, assuming we are not going to put them in
freight trains and run them out of the country? Second is
the demand by some business sectors - the agricultural
industry comes to mind - for low-wage workers. Third
is congressional concern with law enforcement. The
presence of so many illegal immigrants demonstrates to
some that laws are either unenforced or unenforceable.
Fourth is fear of a terrorist attack carried out by foreign-
ers on our soil.
The toughest one, though, is the fifth: politics. A top-
to-bottom reform of immigration faces strong headwinds
both in Congress, particularly in the president's own
party, and among voters, who have no patience for any-
thing that smacks of "amnesty" for illegal immigrants....
The bipartisan proposal getting a hearing at the White
House now could break the impasse over reform....
It recognizes the obvious - there are millions of
immigrants in the U.S. who are illegal and living beyond
any scrutiny or control.
Illegal immigrants would get work visas good for six
years, but would have to prove they have a work history
in this country, no criminal record, and that there is noth-
ing in their background that makes them a security risk.

If this all falls into place - a huge if - businesses
would get their workers, undocumented workers would


gain legal status, and the nation would get better border
security.....

The beginning

of sorrows
Editor:
These past weeks and
months the world has viewed
their television screens in hor-
ror as we witnessed the power
of God Almighty loosed upon
the face of the earth. Many
refer to these events as "acts of
nature." These are "of the
world."
Those of us who study our
Bible every day of our lives,
readily admit they are "the
beginning of sorrows" our Lord
and Savior revealed to the dis-
ciples in the 24th chapter of
Matthew of the King James
version of the Holy Bible.
The tsunami of Indonesia
and surrounding areas, ,earth-
quakes in Japan, four hurri-
canes of 2004 that hit the Gulf
Coast and Florida. I sat alone,
yet not alone, in a mobile
home, in the dark as Hurricane
Charley came roaring through
Sebring. My heart was gripped
in fear as I felt the unpre-
dictable power of the wind!
The Bible tells us "we know
not where the wind comes
from, nor where it goes." Now
we are faced with the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina and Rita!
We are stunned to see New
Orleans and Biloxi, Miss., in
ruins.
The Bible states such devas-
tation as "turned upside down."
What better way could it be
put? This is the Power of God!
We don't know where it begins;
we don't know where it ends!
People say the levees had
been neglected by each admin-
istration for years. They cannot
see beyond their own impor-
tance! We are facing the end of
the world as we witness the
wrath of the Lord in each of
these horrendous events.
What happened to mankind?
Why have we become so rebel-
lious to the teachings of the
Lord our God?
Satan has been loosed upon'
the world and has entered the
hearts and minds of the world.
Women clamoring today for
the "right to choose." The right
to choose what? To kill or not


m


When I first was
asked to be a celebrity | llRAi
waitress for the Ivory
Club's Italian Feast, I
Laur
wasn't sure which Laur
was funnier - the
concept of my being a celebrity,
or someone thinking .I was
coordinated enough to be a
waitress.
I got over both fairly quickly.
One, I know there are people in
the county who know who I am
and read the column, so in the
broadest sense of the word I
guess I am a celebrity. That's
OK; my picture isn't splashed
all over the place so if you just
saw me without knowing my
name you might not recognize
me. If I opened my mouth and
you listened to Barry Foster,
you might peg me that way,
since I have never tried to dis-
guise my voice.
As to waitressing.OK, before
,this stint, I briefly worked at the
University of South Florida's
(USF) cafeteria when I was
starting college and needed a
job. To earn some extra bucks
one year, I did waitress for a
holiday dinner. I don't recall


to kill their unborn babies?
Women, who were once
revered as the nurturers of chil-
dren and the saintly who held
'families together and healed
communities in times of sorrow
and calamities. Now - 2005
- look at them! Half naked on
television, smoking, drinking,
drugs and immorality.
Men in the world who are
supposed to be family caretak-
ers, protesters and providers.
What have they become?
Abusers of women, rapists and
murderers of little children,
dealers in slavery of women
and children, thieves and
killers.
Look at our political system
of the world. Crooks who are in
the business of the lust .for
power, money and greed.
People in high places are there
because they often abused the
poor and unfortunate who were
forced to exist on the crumbs
that fell from the rich man's
table.
Take a' look at what our
United States of America has
become! Our government is a
den of thieves, led by an ungod-
ly Republican party, who pro-
fess to be honest, God fearing
and "conservatives" who
uphold the law and honor life
and the sanctity of God's teach-
ing.
Do you think God Almighty
does not search their hearts and
see the end of their lies and


any disasters happen-
LOOK ing on my watch so I
must have done all
Ware right.
Ware I do like the Ivory
Club - it's com-
prised of people in the county,
mostly conservative (though a
certain political philosophy
doesn't seem to be a require-
ment for participation) who get
together once a month to talk to
people such as Sheriff Susan
Benton, County Commissioner
Bob Bullard, and School
Superintendent Wally Cox. The
guest gives a short presentation,
and then the floor is thrown
open for questions.
Anyway, I got to the White
House (no, not the DC one, the
one downtown here in Sebring)
and found things to be in the
kind of organized chaos some-
thing like this experiences when
things are being gotten ready. I
had not been given a dress code,
so I elected to dress nicely, in a
smart skirt and top and flat san-
dals.
If I am ever asked to do this
again, I'm opting for slacks and


abuse of the poor andAheedy?
The sick and the starving? Do
you think God Almighty does
not know George W. Bush is
responsible for the killing of
hundreds of thousands of peo-
ple all because he wants to chal-
lenge his father's record as a
leader and go down in history
as a savior of the Middle East?
Do you think God Almighty
doesn't know that this adminis-
tration is only interested in big
business, gradually crushing the
will of the less fortunate,
depriving them of medicines
they cannot afford, forcing
generic medicine on them we
know is inferior to what the rich
man can afford?
Do you think God Almighty
doesn't know this administra-
tion sent diluted medicine to
African people who' are drop-
ping like flies from HIV and
AIDS? Or have allowed rapists
in this country to buy Viagra,
then all hyped up on the drug to
go out and brutalize sexually
and murder innocent little chil-
dren?
We are not the proud nation
we would like the world to
believe we are. We are an evil,
wicked nation and this fact has
not escaped the eyes of our
Creator.
People proudly state of our
brave dead soldiers, "he gave
his life for his country." He did-
n't give his life; his life was
taken because he was forced to


sneakers. Brilliant person that I
am, I had not figured that I
would be running up and down
stairs a good bit of the evening,
often carrying trays of -food.
Thanks to Kenilworth Lodge's
Don, who stood at the bottom of
the stairs and held trays for me
as I inched down the stairs,
nothing was spilled.
We managed to get the deli-
cious food out almost totally
without mishap. School Board
member Wally Randall also
played waiter, and others
helped out with various tasks or
just stopped by to cheer us on.
I'm not mentioning other names
not because these people
weren't awesome, but because I
have a horrible memory.
Several children were with
us. One, a young girl who came
up to my shoulder, asked if she
could help serve the food. After
an exhaustive interview ("Can
you walk and chew gum at the
same time?") she and .a friend
were pressed into service and I
was out of a job.
The evening did have one
problem. At one point, a gentle-


the slaughter by an evil, mental-
ly twisted leader who bought
his way into the White House
through the Supreme Court in
the year 2000. Do you think this
abuse of political power has
escaped. God's eye? Well if you
do, think again, as you of the
world watch your television
screens and witness the power
of God in Islamahad as people
weep and dig through the rub-
ble. Think again as you view
the dead being hauled out of the
mud in Guatemala.
But wait, God has not fin-
ished with this wicked world.
He has just begun. The medical
community is pitifully unpre-
pared for the many strains of
Asian flu in this country and
around, the world. Epidemics
unmatched in history! The
Bible calls them "pestilences."
Again, as I have in the past, I
repeat what is to come is far
greater than anything we have
ever experienced.
What we see and experience
now is a "walk in the park"
compared to what is to come.
The Lord is coming folks!
This is the "beginning of sor-
rows." Iraq will burn, so says
the prophet Isaiah, chapter 13
and the book of Revelation,
chapter 18.
I invite you to pick up the
King James Version and see for
yourselves.

MAKING SENSE

MICHAEL REAGAN


If you
listen to
what we
conserva-
tives were
saying
about John
Roberts or
J udge
Pickering
or any of
the other
judicial
nominees


who were being blocked by the
Democrat filibusters - or other
methods of killing a presiden-
tial nomination to the federal
bench - the argument we were
making was that the president
won the election and by virtue
of that victory has the right to
appoint judges of his own
choosing.
It was the conservative battle
cry that the president's nomi-
nees had the right to go through
the process and be voted on by


the full Senate. We jumped all
over the liberal Democrats on
this issue, insisting that the
president had the right to pick
the judges he wants on the fed-
eral bench.
Now, all of sudden, because
the president didn't call us per-
sonally and get our permission,
we wise pundits are now sud-
denly acting the way the. liber-
als did with Roberts and others,
demanding that he reveal how
Harriet Miers will vote and


'Words which at one time we disregard, at another

moment glitter.'
V.S. NAIPAUL, British writer, Nobel laureate, 2003


what she thinks about just about
everything. That's exactly what
we condemned the liberals for
demanding. We are in a snit
because he didn't call us and
consult with us about his
choice. In short, we are adopt-
ing a double standard and you
can't have it both ways.
Because the president didn't
pick someone from the list of
names we wanted we are going
to stir up a big fuss and question
his judgment.
When the Democrats wanted
Judge Roberts to spill his guts
about every hot issue that might
come before the Supreme Court
we cried foul and called for the
application of the Ginsberg rule
- insisting that he did not have
to answer these questions.
See REAGAN, page 3D


man came in carrying his 2-
year-old daughter, who was
quite upset. "We have a crisis,"
he informed 'us. We waited,
wondering what horrible thing
had happened.
He confessed: "I ate her
cookies."
Fortunately, we were able to
supply the munchkin with
replacement cookies (she
grabbed two right away, not
wanting to chance another theft
I suspect). Other than that,
things went fairly smoothly.
If you would like to come to
an Ivory Club meeting, we meet
the third Thursday of the month
at Homer's. Those of us who
want to eat come at 5 p.m. (you
have to buy your own dinner).
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. and
is free. Come if you can - I'm
not waitressing anymore so you
don't have to worry about me
spilling food on you.

REAGAN
Continued from 2D
Now, with the nomination of
Harriet Miers, it's as if there is
.no such thing as a Ginsberg
Rule. We want to know every-
thing - especially how she
feels about abortion. Why are
they asking merely that, but not
about how she feels about emi-
nent domain or affirmative
action or gay marriage or any
other hot button issue certain to
come before the court? Don't
they matter?
Harriet Miers can't talk about
any of those things, and they
know it. After all, that's what
they told the Democrats when
they tried to get Judge Roberts
and other nominees to violate
the Ginsberg Rule.
I understand why my fellow
conservatives are upset. Many
conservative pundits wanted
the president to pick a nominee
who had been in the trenches,
fighting to transform the federal
judiciary from the left-wing
activist court it has become into.
what the Founding Fathers


originally created - one that
looks at the Constitution as it
was meant by them to be read,
and not as some wacko liberal
judges want it to mean.
It's been a bloody fight and
the liberals have had everything
their own way for decades,
writing laws instead of inter-
preting them in the light of the
Constitution. Now that the
American people have reared
up and fought back and taken
the high ground and victory is
within our grasp, the president
turns his back on the valiant
conservative warriors who have
fought the good fight. and
chooses a nominee who hasn't
been in the front lines.
President Bush, however, has
made his choice and he is enti-
tled to have it proceed through
the orderly Senate confirmation
process. Harriet Miers has the
right to be heard. I agree with
two of the most valiant veteran
conservative warriors who,
though desperately dissatisfied
by the president's choice, agree
that Harriet Miers is entitled to
her day in court.
The liberal mainstream


media have salivated over the
dissension in GOP ranks and
they have done everything pos-
sible to play up the family fight
among Republicans. Thus when
Pat Buchanan and Paul Weyrich
voiced their disapproval of the
Miers nomination, this was pre-
sented to the public as all-out
opposition. The fact is that
although both men told
-NewsMax.com they are very
unhappy with what the presi-
dent has done, they are willing
to be fair and wait and see how
well she acquits herself during
the Senate hearings. If she does
well, she'll win their backing.
That, however, has been
ignored by the 'media, whose
motto here is "let's you and him
fight."

A leaderless political movement


The vast, inchoate
pain of the deaths in
Iraq has swelled the
ranks of the anti-war
movement to the
dimensions of a polit-
ically viable force
capable of capturing
the Democratic Party.
We briefly glimpsed

when Howard Dean,

outrage, almost

nmaries of 2004. But now, fed by
another year of a seemingly
endless war and almost 2,000
American military deaths, the
isolated pockets of anti-war
activists are combining with
mainstream voters, driven by
the national angst over the, war,
to form a major political van-
guard.
The most interesting aspect
of this spreading political
movement is that it has no lead-
ers. All the usual suspects who
might unfurl the banners and
assume the position to which
their political rank entitles them
are, instead, learning the les-
sons of the last campaign and
listing to the center, hobbled by
their own records of backing
the invasion in the first place.
Our current political situa-
tion resembles the '60s so
strongly that even the years
seem the same, with only the
decade changed. Iraq, 'like
Vietnam, started in the early
years of the decade.
Administration policy in each
engagement was sanctioned
early on by Congress and. rati-
fied in the fourth year of each
decade by an electoral victory.


Anti-wai sentiment
gathered in the fifth
year both times but
found no leaders

Democratic Party.

leaders of the left --
FROM Hubert Humphrey,
Lyndon Johnson
RIS Adlai Stevenson,
- Edmund MIuskic and
QRRIS Nelson Rockefeller

Vietnam War. Today, Hillary
Clinton stands behind the war.
Will Clinton lose her claim
on the leadership of the left as
Humphrey did'? Her support for
the war might galvanize the
appearance of new leaders in
her party, just as the political
vacuum over Vietnam led to the
emergence of Eugene
McCarthy and Geoige
McGovern. Or will she switch
and play the role of Robert
Kennedy. discarding her back-
ing of the war just in time to
lead' a crusade against it before
the elections of 2008?
Does the New York senator
understand the dimensions of
outsider politics'? Her advisers
aren't helping: Pollster Mark
Penn's dismissal of the idea of a,
left-wing revolt against Hillary
as a "notion I would have to
laugh at" may take its rightful
place in the history of famous-
last-words alongside those of
Jim Jordan, John.Kerry's early
campaign manager, dismissing
the Howard Dean surge: "There
are no votes on the Internet."
In fact, the left may have the
last laugh on this one. The mas-

moderate center of the
Democratic Party and the grow-
ing unease at Sen. Clinton's
support for the war the grass-
roots hate will do much to
shape the evolution of the 2008
presidential contest.
But the denouement might
come sooner. This leaderless
left may well find a candidate to
field against Hillary in next
year's Democratic senatorial
primary. It might be an
Elizabeth Holtzman or Mark
Green --- or someone further
from the mainstream, like
Norm Siegel. As soon as the left
gets the point that Hillary is not
with them, the retribution is
likely to be swift and sure.
So why is Hillary so stub-
born on the war? Perhaps she
simply believes it's the right
thing to do.
But, based on my experience
with her, I'd suggest three other
reasons: First, because she is
always stubborn; it's Hillary
being Hillary. Second, she
knows that for a woman to win,
she has to be perceived as a
hawk --- a Margaret Thatcher or
a Golda Mier. And, finally, she
is so enjoying the company of
the establishment, the obei-
sance of men in uniform, the
pats on the back from her club-
mates in the Senate that it is
hard to turn away and face the
cold world outside the estab-
lishment.

Commission discusses parking pi -blem


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Feb. 6, 1964.
The State Road Department
isn't receiving any cooperation
from the Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners in efforts to end
parking along U.S. 27 in front
of Walker Memorial Hospital.
A resolution, requested by
the state department, was pre-
sented at the Tuesday morning
session of the county board, but
the commissioners took no
vote.
"This was the third request
from the state for such an
action," Cecil Skipper, commis-
sioner from the Avon Park area
protested. "As long as both
units of the hospital are being
used, some parking along the
front of the old building is
needed. It is a good 200 yards
from the parking lot to the old
building."
When the state department in
a letter dated July 27 asked for
parking in front of the hospital
to be eliminated, the commis-
sioners said that action would
be delayed until the hospital
had completed the new parking
lot.
A letter read to the commis-
sioners Tuesday stated that "the
new parking lot is completed,
but the parking continues..."
Commissioner Carl McIntyre
observed that when cars parked
too close together in front of the
hospital, some drivers have to
pull out into the highway to get
out of their parking space.
Skipper pointed out that a
special parking lane had been
built in front of the old Walker,
Memorial building and he
added that the abrupt ending of
that lane creates more problems
than the parking along the high-
way.
Examination of bids for road
..and bridge materials occupied
- most of the'board meeting time


Tuesday. A half dozen firms
submitted bids for rock, but in
all other categories bidders
were few - one to three for most
items.
Central Florida Asphalt of
Avon Park won the bid for hot
mix and cold mix. Other suc-
cessful bidders were Jim
Whitaker and Son of Sebring,
concrete culverts and for laying
plant mix; Florida Fence Post
Co. of Fort Myers, pressure
treated lumber; Triangle Iron
Works of Sebring for wire
cable; ARMOCO Steel Co.,

Some county purchases are
made on a biennial basis.
The commissioners of the
Tuesday meeting learned that
the annual budget hearing for
second road projects will be
held in Bartow on March 11
and 12. The State Road Board
staff has set 11 a.m., on March
11, as the time for the
Highlands County hearing.

Celebration

Shutout gives Dragons first
multi-win season since 2000
By JEFF BERLINICKE
News-Sun Correspondent
CELEBRATION - After five straight
losses and an ugly 41-0 loss to Avon Park
last week, Lake Placid had every reason to
mail it on Friday.
Instead, the charged up Green Dragons,
led by a ferocious defense, battled to hold
onto a shutout as the clock wound down.
They were threatened late with a lead safely
in hand, but held on for a 20-0 win over
Celebration. They held the Storm to four first
downs, three of them in the final minutes.
Lake Placid coach Shaw Maddox said he
was happy to put an end to the
losing skid, but added that his Lake Placid
team is capable of more. '
"We still made a lot of mis-
takes and we got in trouble let- Celebration
ting them (Celebration) hang
around. We should have put 0
them away earlier." Up 'Next
The Storm kept it close, but Dragons host
a 31-yard interception return Bishop Verot
by Jonathon Simons midway on Friday
through the fourth quarter gave
Lake Placid a 13-0 lead and the defense held
on to the end.
Celebration (3-4) was playing without its
top two running backs - Ronel Philpot and
Justin Renaldo, both of whom were injured
last week.
"We stayed with them, but we just didn't
have the depth we needed," Celebration
coach Eddie Carnley said. "We played hard,
we just didn't get it done on offense."
Lake Placid (2-5) overcame a sluggish
start to get on the scoreboard fi , all, in the
second quarter when Clin, Vele, itn a quar-
terback sneak in from 3 yards.-It-c-apped off
a 13-play, 80-yard drive. The key play was
Brent Bierman's 17-yard run on third won
that moved the ball to the Celebration 17.

JEFF CANTWELL/News-Sun
T.J. Williams breaks free for a 52-yard touchdown run for
Sebring Friday night. The play was called back on a penalty.


By JEFF CANTWELL
Sports Writer
ARCADIA -'The very first
play of the game proved to be a
.bad omen of things to come for
Sebring, while the DeSoto
Bulldogs were packed up tight
for the homecoming game and
ran away with a 33-12 district
win Friday night.
Junior place-kicker Arturo
Vargas sent a kick to the Sebring
25-yard line and no Blue Streak
bothered to cover the football -
much to the dismay of.the coach-
ing staff and Sebring fans.
Derrick Turner recovered for
DeSoto (5-3 overall, 2-0 in
District 12-3A) and the 'Dogs
needed only three plays to cash
in.

For some guys, racing is


not all about going fast


* SEBRING
The world of historic and
vintage sports car racing is
changing.
Walk around the paddock
at Sebring International
Raceway this weekend during
the Historic Fall Classic, and
most of the cars you see are
part of operations that look
more like something you'd
expect to see at the 12 Hours
in March. They're built by
big-money racing shops and,
when they get to the track,

are part of a team effort that's
all about how fast these old classics can
go.
That's not the case with Daniel
Becker. He's is old school, despite
being one of the younger drivers you'll
find racing these types of cars.
Becker's car is old-school, too. The
beautiful 1971 orange-and-blue Porsche
911, which carries'the No. 71, was a
rolled-over wreck when Becker first
noticed it while riding his bike near his


home in Hopkinsville, Ky.,
where it had been sitting for
about 15 years.
"I pulled it out of a weed-
covered ditch," the 42-year-
old said Friday.
Looking at the car today,
it's hard to imagine that it
was a derelict not too long
)INP ago, but that's only because
IN Becker has poured over 2,000
IRE hours of work into it, rebuild-
S ing it from the ground up.
ressel And that's what makes
-_ Becker somewhat different
than most of the racers at
Sebring International Raceway this
weekend.
There aren't too many guys, he says,
who build, race and repair the cars all
on their own.
"I'm one of the few anymore in this
particular series in that I do everything
from painting the car top welding and
all those things. It's a real rarity. It's
gotten to be quite an elaborate event.
"There's a plethora of beautiful cars

holding, but then upgraded to

Flathead



catfish a


Florida


monster

When I think of big fish, the
first thing that comes to mind
is a 10- or 12-gound large-
mouth bass. I am sure most
anglers in our local area proba-
bly think along the same lines.
But that vision fades when
compared with a behemoth
roaming north Florida rivers.
Those rivers harbor some of
the largest fish in the state.
There is no need to trek to the
Gulf of Mexico or sail to the
Bahamas to hook up with
monster-sized fish. I am talk-
ing about the flathead catfish
that some call Appaloosa cat
while others call him shovel-
head or Mississippi cat.
They can be found in rivers
from the east coast all the way
to the Alabama state line.
While the flathead is not too
popular with most anglers, he
does have his good qualities.
He grows very large and when
hooked he puts up a real fight.
On the dinner table, he is
superb.
Catching this whiskered
monster takes no sophisticated
electronics, no elaborate boat
or expensive equipment. Just
don't make the mistake of
going after him with light
tackle. He will tear it up and
send you home empty handed.
To take a big flathead, you
need big tackle. Bear in mind
that these catfish can tip the
scales at 120 pounds and when
hooked he will head for bot-
tom structure and you'll need
to stop him or drag him out if

he gets
there.
A large,
open-faced
spinning
reel or
level-wind
reel
spooled,
with 40- or
50-pound
test line on
a heavy,
stiff rod
will usual-


ly get the job done. Hooks
should be in the 3/0 to 6/0 size
range, especially when using
live bait. Stink baits and the
normal catfish baits don't
work with flatheads. They feed
almost exclusively on live
prey.
Serious flathead anglers bait
up with live bream, the
favorite being redbreast sun-
fish and warmouth. Bliuegills
and shell-crackers are also
good live bait for the big cats.
Golden shiners, crawfish and
even small catfish can also be
used successfully.
Anglers seem to disagree on
how to hook a bait, so just
experiment until you find what
works best for you. Catfish
anglers also can't seem to
agree on the best time to go
fishing. Some prefer daylight
hours, while others fish only at
night.
It doesn't make a whole lot
of difference, because the flat-
head catfish is not choosy and
feeds anytime he feels like it.
Of course, daylight fishing
is safer. Some kind of lights
are needed at night, but too
much can be a problem. Lights
are necessary so that others on
the water can see you. After
hooking a large fish, some
light is needed but spotlights
and bright flashlights can,
spook the fish and cause it to
break the line.
During daylight hours, big
flatheads can usually be found
in deeper and swifter parts of
the river near cover such as
snags and undercut banks.
After dark, they will forage in
shallower water.
Edges of holes and drop-
offs can be real hot spots after
dark.
It's too bad we don't have
anything that big swimming in
our local streams. Wouldn't
you love to tangle with a fish
that large?
I caught a lot of big catfish
when I was younger, but none.
that would compare with these
north Florida monsters.

Avon Park High School surprised track coach Chet Brojek Friday night with a plaque and a sign under
the scoreboard officially proclaiming the track at Joe Franza Stadium Chet Brojek Track. Brojek, who
retired from teaching two years ago after over 30 years at Avon Park, Brojek coached the Devils cross
country team to a state title in 1972 and a runner-up finish the next year, and has also coached 10 indi-
vidual state champs in track and cross country.

Super Bowl, but it was the
biggest game of the season, no
doubt."
Mimicking their sluggish
start and explosive finish
against Sebring two weeks ago,
Hardee never even sniffed the
end zone in the first 24 minutes,
failing to convert a fake punt
and throwing two interceptions
which gave Avon Park control
of the game. And the injured
Marc Hodges looked like an
injured Marc Hodges, gaining
just 37 yards on seven carries in
the first half.
Bryan admitted he wanted to
work Hodges into the game
slowly because he was, in his
words, at about 80 percent.
Without a controlling ground
game, Hardee's two best drives
of the half pushed the ball to
Avon Park's 38 and 36, but
were foiled when Deven Wilson
and Taiwan Perry stepped in
front of a pair of Weston Palmer
passes to end the threats.
The Wildcats weren't so
lucky.
With two minutes remaining
in the first half, the Devils final-
ly put the crowd into a frenzy
when a tipped T.K. Hill pass
was hauled in by Gerrard
Coleman on the run and taken
62 yards to the end zone. The
play sprung open when tailback
Kaneef Caldwell's collision
with a blitzing linebacker gave
Hill enough time to get the


PLACID
Continued from IE
The Dragons tried a fake for
the extra point, but Quay
Crenshaw was stuffed at the
line.
The Lake Placid defense was
stingy, not allowing
Celebration a first down until a
pass interference call midway
through the second quarter. The
Storm never made it past mid-
field the entire first half.
Lake Placid had a chance to
increase the lead, marching
down to the Celebration, but on
a fourth-and-one, Veley was hit
and fumbled well beyond the
first down marker. Celebration
recovered to'halt the drive.
The Storm tried to generate
some offense with an onside
kick to open the second half,
but Lake Placid recovered,.tak-
ing control at its own 49.
The Dragons stalled, but got
another chance early in the
third quarter. On a third-and-
seven, Celebration quarterback
Kanin Alldredge went deep.
The ball was tipped and a whis-
tle was blown before the ball hit
the ground, but Lake Placid's
George Rasmussen picked the
ball off after the whistle. After
the officials ruled an inadver-
tent whistle, the play was
replayed after a lengthy argu-
ment from the Lake Placid side-
line.
It didn't matter. On the next
play, Simons stepped in front of
a pass in the flat and raced
down the sideline untouched
for a 31-yard touchdown.
Alfredo Lopez's extra point
made it 13-0.
On Celebration's next drive,
Alldredge faded back to pass on


throw off into double coverage,
where the two defenders collid-
.ed, allowing Coleman to catch
the ball in stride and leave
everyone else behind.
That gave the Devils A 7-0
lead and what seemed like enor-
mous momentum going into
halftime after Perry's intercep-
tion at the goal line with 16 sec-
onds remaining ended Hardee's
attempt to answer.
A standing ovation from the
home bleachers wasn't.enough
to hold off Hardee, though.
Sprung by a 83-yard second
half by Hodges, the Wildcats
turned the game around in a
hurry, scoring twice within a
1:13 span in the third quarter.
Hardee started the turn-
around starting with its third
drive of the half, a nine-play,
54-yard march capped with a
22-yard Hodges touchdown run
up the middle to tie the game
with 2:53 left in the quarter.
Avon Park ran two plays on
its following drive before a
fumble on a first-down comple-
tion put the game away.
Stripping and gobbling up the
ball at the 45, Jackson Mosely
tip-tded down the sideline and
followed,,the wall of blockers,
finding the end zone untouched
for a. 14-0 Hardee lead with
1:40 remaining.
Fullback Brad Gilliard then
added two more 1-yard scores
to put the game away.
"Unfortunately its over now
and we just have to finish the
season out and play for pride,"

Frustration was beginning to

Blue Streak head coach Jared
Hamlin was the first to admit
that DeSoto is a talented foot-

that his team made them look

happen against a team of their

easy DeSoto points.
"It wasn't our night. They've

THRILLS

"Ultimate Spider-Man"
Activision; GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (Realistic violence, mild language)
***** Score: 4.5 out of 5
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
Not based on a movie this time, "Ultimate Spider-Man"
instead pulls from the pages of the comic book series of the
same name, which itself is a revisionist version of the orig-
inal Amazing Spider-Man comics that first appeared in 1962.
Graphically, it features the same visual flair as seen in print,
sketched and inked, except it's in motion and interactive and on
your television screen. While cell-shaded graphics are a new (and
welcome) look to Spidey-games, the free-roaming, city-wide game-
play is actually quite similar to the recent "Spider-Man" movie-
based titles - no surprise since developer Treyarch is responsible.
for all of them.
"Ultimate Spider-Man" is ultimately easier, however, With sim-
plified controls for fighting, leaping and web-slinging, making it
much more accessible to casual players while, perhaps, turning off
a few of the seasoned ones.
Either way dumbed-down action still leaves plenty of room for
huge fun, because it's a rock-solid production that allows you to
play as a caricature of Tobey Maguire in tights, no matter how you
prefer to finesse your buttons.
On occasion, you play as Spidey's nemesis, Venom, who is con-
trolled pretty much the same way except he can't spin webs - but


QUICK PICK
"X-Men Legends II: Rise of The
Apocalypse"
Activision; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (realistic violence, mild
language)
**** Score: 4 out of 5
Though "X-Men Legends Il: Rise of the
Apocalypse" is just your basic dun-
geon-crawler following an action/RPG
formula where you control a team of char-
acters, each with unique and evolving skill
sets, it's thoroughly drenched in that exqui-
site anti-hero lore that is X-Men, where the
characters are either super-heroically cool,
exceptionally weird or a combination of
both.

he can eat people, in his own unique sequences within the story.
And the story is where "Ultimate Spider-Man" really shines.
With guest appearances by many Marvel characters and
drenched in the Spidey-specific comic tragedy of modern-teen
angst in an outlandishly dangerous city with our hero, the post-,
pubescent Peter Parker, churning out those ever-quotable quips
and commentaries, "Ultimate Spider-Man" becomes even better
than the comic on which it's based because you're not just reading
it, you're being it.


The Brotherhood, sworn enemies of the X-
Men, but of the same mutant-human stock,
is in there, too, but this time they join forces
with the Men o' X against a newly discov-
ered whacked-out mutant called Apocalypse
and his band of merry goons.
Again, with.that stylish, cell-shaded ani-
mation look, it appears like a comic book
and plays a lot like the last "X-Men Legends"
game; you manage a party of four (from a


selection of 19, eventually), upgrade their
powers or weapons, swap out control of
each on the fly, fight and solve puzzles tag-
team style. In this new version, you can
automate the micro-managerial menu of
skills and attributes, optionally and let the
computer decide who should buff up what
and whether enough skill points have been
amassed so it plays heavier on the action
than the RPG elements. That's a nice option
for action buffs, because the action is solid,
smarter and more involved.
Also, "Legends II" can be played online
with up to four cooperative players, which is
also nice (less so on the lag-ridden PS2) for
players who don't have any friends at home
to hand off a second controller or three..

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Porsche 911s like Daniel Becker's, which is not pictured here, are the most common cars on the track
during the Historic Fall Classic at Sebring International Raceway.


CARS
Continued from IE
10 years, plus one he built for
a friend. The first was a 1961
Porsche 356, which he drove to
the Rolex Championship in
1998 before selling it and get-
ting a i962 model.
Becker said he paid around
$3,600 for his current car, and
could probably sell if for over
$100,000. But if you figured in
all the hours - not to mention
money - he's put into it, that
would work out to about $5
per hour.
Becker only goes to about
three events a year now, due to
the higher cost of just getting
to the track. Two of those
events are at Sebring
International Raceway.
"In the spring and in the fall.
It's the best place in the world
to come. The city is geared
around us. They appreciate us
being here. The city is wel-
coming, and it's just the best
place to go with these cars.
This is the track that I prefer to
all of them I've been tq around
the country."
These days, his involvement
is more about the building of
the car than about the racing
that results from all the hard
work.
"I'll build them, race them


'I'm just not

that involved

with how fast

I'm going.'
DANIEL BECKER

for a couple of years and then
sell them, then I'll build anoth-
er one," he said.
Considering Becker's job is
building the robots that build
hydraulic motors for White
Hydraulics, working on a 2-
liter Porsche engine - and all
the things that surround it to
make up a race car - isn't
much of a technical challenge.
But it's that aspect of racing,
.rather than the actual driving,
that draws him to the sport.
"If I could build them and
give them to someone to race
and have them buy them, that
would be perfectly fine," said
Becker, who was building cars
long before he built his first
robot. "I enjoy.the work of
building it."
So why even bother taking
the car out on the track, where
there's a risk that all of his
hard work could literally go up
in smoke with one wrong turn
of the steering.wheel?
"It's a car. A car can always


be replaced," he said. " If you
want to race, there's not much
choice. You can't just build the
car and park it."
That doesn't mean he does-
n't enjoy the racing. He just
doesn't really care about how
fast he goes.
For Becker, a racing week-
end is more about the car he's
worked on to get 'ready to go to
the race and the friends he'll
see when he gets to the track.
The race, he said, is just a
reason to get out of the house.
"I'm less about competition
and more about appreciating
the friends you have around,"
he said, recalling a close friend
who got him into the sport and
had a fatal heart attack while at
a track. "(My speed is) irrele-
vant to me. Most of these peo-
ple, it's not irrelevant, but I'm
just not that involved with how
fast I'm going."
I Of course, as he said this he
was bent over the engine of his
car with a screwdriver in hand,
trying to figure out a way to
make the car run better ... and
faster.
Which proves that just
because you're old school, it
doesn't mean you necessarily
want to drive around the track
like an old lady.
