Sunday afternoon
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Hurricane Wilma is
expected to arrive in Highlands County
around 3 a.m. Monday.
Highlands County emergency man-
agement will open hurricane shelters at 4
p.m. today. Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols wants to be sure
evacuees and shelter personnel have
plenty of time- to get situated before the
storm hits.


"Go to bed where you plan to ride out
the storm," County Administrator Carl
Cool said.
General shelters are, from south to
north, Lake Placid High School, Fred
Wild Elementary School in Sebring,
Sebring -High School, Woodlawn
Elementary School in Sebring, South
Florida Community College University
Center in Avon Park, Avon Park,
Recreation Center and Avon Elementary

will feed general sheltriTs.
' The special needs shelter will be at the
. Highlands County Agri-Civic Center on


George Boulevard in Sebring.
Although as of Saturday there was no
.mandatory evacuations in effect for
Highlands County, officials strongly
encouraged people living in mobile
homes to go to a shelter.
The only animals allowed in general
shelters would be service animals. No
pets, even those in kennels would be
allowed. The county is looking at creat-
ing an animal-friendly shelter, Nichols
said, but it does not have one right now.
A.:,'ie with pets is urged to-make
arrangements with veterinarians, or a
friend or relative to the north. Residents


also are urged to use today to secure
loose outdoor objects and equipment,
cover windows, make final preparations
and get to shelter.
A countywide curfew will go into
effect at 2 a.m. Monday and will be in
effect until further notice.'
Public and private schools will close
Monday, as will government offices.

Community tips help find Hawthorne


Sheriff's deputies
make arrest in
Avon Park
ByPHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - Highlands
County sheriff's deputies have
found and . captured Adrian
Lamar Hawthorne thanks to
community tips.
Hawthorne, 26, of Lake
Placid, was arrested at approxi-


mately 11:30 p.m. Friday in the
Garrett Road area of Avon Park.
Sheriff Susan Benton credits
great community and law
enforcement teamwork for his
capture. As deputies from vari-
ous bureaus and bondsmen with
Sottile Bailbonds attempted to
locate Hawthorne, tips came
flooding in from the communi-
ty.
Lt. 'Bobby Duncan, who
coordinated the team effort
along with several deputies,
remained vigilant in Highway
I


Park in Lake
Placid, while
other 'team
members under
the direction of
Sgt. Jackv
BaiIe y
responded to a
tip that he was HAWTHORNE
in Avon Park
"hanging out in a known high
drug trafficking area."
Bailey and Detective Jeff
Reinhart set up surveillance in
the area. Detectives and bonds-

Mae Robinson, 35, said she isn't sure what caused the fire at her home Saturday morning, but she knows it started
in the kitchen of her home at 1104 Booker St., Sebring.


man Jimmy Sottile spotted.
Hawthorne and took him into
custody without incident.
"Our biggest concern was
keeping everyone safe, espe-
cially our law enforcement offi-
cers, as talk of threats to kill any
cop who tried to take him con-
tinued to surface," Benton said.
"We can't emphasize enough
the teamwork."
Hawthorne had jumped bail
allowing bondsmen to assist in
the search. The Highway Park
community made the differ-


ence, Benton said. Hawthorne
had been committing acts of
violence in the neighborhood
under an alleged drug-induced
paranoia, and they provided tips
to his location.
Hawthorne is being held in
the Highlands County Jail with
no bond on numerous failures
to appear in court warrants as
well as violation of probation
on drug and driver's license
violations. He also is under no
bond from a domestic violence
case where he is alleged to have
battered his girlfriend.-


Family of nine


homeless after


Saturday fire

By KATARA SIMMONS
News-Sun
SEBRING - While most people are occupied with
the threat of Hurricane Wilma, Mae Robinson and her
family are more concerned about the house fire that left
them homeless Saturday morning.
Robinson admitted that the house at 1104 Booker St.
was not equipped with any smoke detectors or fire extin-
guishers.
"It was about 9:30 (a.m.) and I was laying in bed when
one of the kids told me there was a fire in the kitchen. I
thought it was something I could put out, but flames were
coming from the stove and sink area and it was too big,"
Robinson said.
With only enough time to get the children out of the
house, Robinson said she wasn't able to salvage any per-
sonal belongings. She believes that the smoke and water
damage will probably prove worse than the actual fire.
Robinson, 35, and her boyfriend, Darrell Watson, 32,

SEBRING - Still damaged
from last year's hurricanes, the
U.S. Post Office branches in
downtown Sebring and Avon
Park have still not moved back
into their original locations.
The Avon Park Post Office is
still at 910 U.S. 27 South, in the
former Tractor Supply
Company store. All Sebring
mail is being handled at the
Lake Jackson Branch, behind
Lakeshore Mall.
Gary Sawtelle, spokesperson
for the U.S. Postal Service, said
both offices should reopen their
downtown locations within the
next six months. Reconstruc-
ti6n work contracts were
awarded this year, but work
was held up by the same prob-
lems everyone else had, he said:

office at 100 S. Verona Ave.
should reopen the week of Nov.

employees plan to begin mov-

From most reports, cus-
tomers and postal ,workers have
enjoyed Avon Park's larger
facility, which is easier to find
and near most of the city's
highway shopping. However,
the building has too much
square footage for government
budget.
Sebring's office was heavily
damaged both inside and out
during last year's hurricanes.

Police are warning residents
of a new type of identity theft
scam involving jury duty.
The victim will receive a
phone call from an angry "clerk
of court," very upset because
the person did not show up for
jury duty. The caller will insist
that the victim was sent a sum-
mons to report, and may say a
warrant has been issued for that
person's arrest.
When the victim' says he or
she never received the sum-
mons, the caller asks for per-
sonal information such as a
Social Security number, date of


birth and address to verify the
address they have on the jury
list. In reality, a court worker
would never call a prospective
juror and ask for private infor-
mation.
Once the person tells the
caller this . information,. the
alleged "clerk of court" tells
them there has been a mistake,
and they are not the one ordered
for jury duty.
The victim may be caught
off-guard and upset, and may.
be less vigilant about protecting
their confidential information.

The new volunteers


Educated, skilled and experienced


* The first of a two-part series.
By PATRICIA P. POND
News-Sun correspondent
nationally, 77 million
people are nearing
retirement age. They
are the best educated, most
active and healthiest retirees in
history. They will redefine the
concept of retirement as they
begin their transition into a
new way of living.
A lot of people will continue
to work part time after leaving
their full-time jobs. Others will
go back to school to learn a
new skill, explore a new inter-
est, or finish a long-delayed
degree.
A large number will volun-
teer for organizations whose
mission fits their values' or
expertise. But they will not be
content to sit in a comer and
stuff envelopes. The new vol-
unteers want to use their skills
and experience. They are also
looking for friendship and a
connection to the community.
Highlands County has a
variety of local organizations
that offer many appealing
choices for getting involved in
the community. In this series,
some local volunteers share
their experiences about how
their personal interests led
them into total immersion.
Matching interests to
opportunities
Tom Bruha joined the
Highlands Art League three
years ago, when he and his
wife Jozella retired to Sebring
from LaCross, Wis. Bruha had
been a commercial artist work-
ing in advertising, with all of
the pressures of designing ad
campaigns for large national
accounts.
"I joined the Art League to
meet people, to get acquainted
with fellow artists," Bruha
remembers. "I had been a
member of two art leagues in
Wisconsin, so Ijjoied ihe one .
i S.ebring before We even"
bougigt our house."
The Bruhas went to one of
the league's receptions for
Artist of the Month, where
Tom met a lot of local artists.
"We began meeting and doing
a lot of painting together after
that. We have some really good
artists in this area."
Bruha then enrolled for
classes at the Art League and at
South Florida Community
College.
"I have always been a water
color artist, and I love creating
things. But I know I won't do
it unless I take classes. I'll just
go fishing or cut the grass.
The instructors give me assign-
ments, and that makes me sit
down and do it."
Bruha's talent did not go
unnoticed at the league. When
last year's art festival was
being planned, Bruha was
asked if he would design the
signs for the festival, which
feature life-size characters
based on each street's theme.
"I designed the displays and
helped build them. That is how
I got involved in volunteering."
Bruha is quick to add that
"all of our volunteers pitched
in with painting the displays
and setting up for the festival."
Contractor Norb Walz built'the
steel frames and donated time,
effort and materials.
This year, Bruha volunteered
to be chairman of the Set-Up
and Tear-Down Committee for
the November festival, a
marathon job that requires days
of work from all of the
league's small group of volun-
teers. This follows on the heels
of the recent move of the
league's quarters into the
Yellow House, which had
everyone working nonstop for
a month.
Bruha admits he is volun-
teering many more hours than
he planned when he first joined
the league, but he wants the
organization to succeed
because he is getting so much
from it.
"The people in the Art
League-won me over. I've
made some really good friends


who got me involved and I am
enjoying every minute of it."
Sense of
accomplishment
Ruth Poindexter is a new
volunteer at the Highlands Art


League, although she and her
husband John have been mem-
bers for two years. She has a
wealth of computer knowledge
from business experience and
volunteered to create and
install a new database system
for the League.
This database is used for
mailing announcements, the
newsletter, class schedules and
new member information pack-
ages.
"At the Art League, I get to
use my knowledge. It is chal-
lenging, but it keeps me
active," Poindexter says.
Tara Hughes, who works in
the office at the Yellow House,
says that business experience is
especially welcome from vol-
unteers.
"The Art League is run more


like a business than many
organizations, so we need
those skills," Hughes said.
Ruth Poindexter felt reward-
ed for her efforts by the shower
of thanks from the members.,
"Just seeing the reaction on
the faces of the people here
when I finished the database
was wonderful. It was a great
sense of accomplishment," she
says.
One Tutor - One Child
Not everyone is outgoing
and group oriented. Some peo-
ple like to work one-on-one,
making personal connections
with children, the elderly, or
those who have special chal-
lenges. Each person has to con-
sider his or her strengths, and
also how much time they have

them at Christmas time to children of migrant families.

to volunteer.
Volunteers who work with
the Highlands County
Mentor/Tutor.Program work
one-on-one with children in the
schools. They attend a training
session and receive packets of
how-to materials and a "starter
kit" with classroom supplies so
that first-timers can enter the
classroom with confidence.
Each volunteer is then assigned
to a child in one of the public
schools.
"You don't have to be an
educator to tutor a child," said
Dr. Laura Van Horn, who acts
as liaison between the
Mentor/Tutor Program and the
school board. "Many of the
volunteers are retired business
people, or people who just love
children."
Van Horn, who has been
with the school district since
1984, explains that the students
who need tutoring are selected
by the teachers in each class-
room. The teacher identifies
the learning problems and pro-
vides the remedial materials for
the student.
Many of these volunteers are
recruited and trained through
RSVP (Retired and Senior
Volunteer Program). Locally,
RSVP is sponsored by Nu-
Hope Elder Services in
Sebring, and the Sebring
Optimist Club. The Optimists
provide the starter kits for each
tutor and financial support for
many of the activities.
Recognizing the time
Volunteers are asked to give
at least one hour per week for
tutoring, but many give far
more. Those who give 50 or
more hours are recognized
each year at an elegant lunch-
eon in their honor.
"We wanted to do something
special for people who were
donating their time to children
in the classroom. A lot of our

volunteers accompany children
on field trips once or twice a
year, but the mentor/tutor vol-
unteers are dedicating hundreds
of hours by coming into the
schools every week and work-
ing one-on-one with the chil-
dren," Van Horn said.
Funding for the awards
luncheon is donated by the
Sebring Optimists Club.
"The members of the
. Optimist Club are our financial
benefactors," Van Horn said.
"Gabe Read has been a driving
force behind the tutoring pro-
gram."
Last April, 176 volunteers
who had 50 or more hours of
volunteer service were invited
to the awards luncheon, held at
The Palms in Sebring.
"Each one was presented
with a certificate, and the top


three received prizes donated
by our sponsors," Van Horn
said.
This year's "Highlands
County Mentor/Tutor Volunteer
of the Year" was. Janice
Hendrie, a young woman who
worked more than 500 hours in
the program.

Rotary makes an apple a day easy


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Days are now
a little bit shorter, the nights a
little bit cooler.
That can only mean one thing
- it is f1ll in Highlands
County, and time for the 36th
annual Gene Scheck Apple and
Cider Sale, courtesy of the
Sebring Noon Rotary Club.
The sale will be held at
Lakeshore Mall's parking lot
from 8 a.m. until the apples are
sold out on Thursday, Nov. 10.


People, however, are welcome
to pre-order.
In fact Ed Jensen, who is one
of the organizers of the event,
recommends pre-ordering.
While two semis will deliver
180,000 pounds of apples at
five o'clock Thursday morning,
they have a way of selling fast
he said.
The sale this year will feature
a variety of apples, which will
sell in half bushels or 10-pound
bags. They can be bought by
variety, or in three different


combination packs.
Prices promise to be 19 cents
below Wal-Mart's lowest price.
All money raised will benefit
children.
For example, Rotary con-
tributes to the high school
bands, Dixie Youth Baseball,
the Boys & Girls Club, and the
Children's Advocacy Center, o
name just four regular recipi-
ents.
The Rotary also annually
funds the one year
Ambassadorial Scholarship,


The above chart shows which apples are best for putting in salads, bak-
ing, cooking, pies, dried, sauces and just have a fresh apple to slice and
eat. Depending on what you want yours apples for, there is plenty to
choose from and the Rotary Apple Sale is the best way to get your fill of
apples, while also helping support charitable organizations in the com-
munity.


which covers all college costs
and expenses for a worthy
Highlands student who wants to
attend college out of the county
or country.
When it comes to apple vari-
eties, the list is almost unend-
ing. The U.S. Apple Association
says there are more than 7,500
worldwide.
The Noon Rotary wants to
make choices a little bit easier;
they will be selling nine differ-
ent kinds.
The apple varieties on sale
this year are: Cortland, Fuji,
Golden Delicious, Ida Red,
Jonagold, Melrose, Mutsu
Crispin, Red Delicious, and
Winesap. Bosc pears will also
be available this year, as will
apple cider.

Cut to the core, apples are
healthy as well as delicious.
The U. S. Apple Association
(at www.usapple.org) has post-
ed a long list of studies that
point to the benefits of eating
apples.
According to those studies,
in addition to high fiber content,
apples are an excellent source
of flavonoids and phytonutri-
ents, which help lower the risk
of lung, liver, colon, prostate or
digestive system cancers.
Apples may also reduce the risk
of heart disease, stroke, type 2
diabetes, and asthma.
According to Cornell
University researchers, 100
grams of unpeeled, fresh apple
- about two-thirds of a medi-
um sized apple- provides the


total antioxidant activity of
1,500 milligrams of vitamin C.
A University of Mass-
achusetts study has shown
nutrients in apples and apple
juice -may improve memory and,
learning, and may protect
against oxidative damage that
contributes to age-related brain
disorders such as Alzheimer's
Disease.
Apples may also contribute
to bone health by providing a
source of the dietary mineral
boron.
Apples are as versatile in the
kitchen. They can be eaten as is,
or sliced into salads, or made
into apple sauce, or baked into
pies.

Strenth at 471-9900.

Time to prepare is now, Renfro says


* Second in a series
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - First elected to
The School Board of Highlands
County in 1994, Wendy Renfro
is now its senior member.
That mantle will be passed
on next year when Renfro steps
down from the board at the end
of her current term of office.
* "It really, really has been a.
joy," Renfro said in a recent
interview. "There are a lot more
positives than negatives. The
public just doesn't realize how
many dedicated employees The
School Board of Highlands
County has. There are just so
many who go above and
beyond, it gives you a warm
and fuzzy feeling."
She hopes whoever runs to
replace her in District 5, shares
*that dedication.
"There's a very, very large
learning curve," she said. "Part
of the reason why I declared so
early that I was not going to
seek re-election, was to allow
whoever runs for District 5 an
opportunity to begin the learn-
ing process."
She described how over-
whelming it was when she first
joined the board; how she
worked to soak up all the infor-
mation the different board
members had. Be prepared to
do a lot of reading, she said.


'The state is finally

realizing that school

boards have to be a part

of growth management.'
WENDY RENFRO, school board member


Probably the most important
thing a candidate must learn is
just what a board member's
responsibilities are, explaining,
"The school board deals with
policy and budget, not the day-
to-day operations.
"When people have a con-
cern, about a teacher or a situa-
tion, there's a tendency to call
the school board members, and
nine times out of 10, (the prob-
lem) has to do with day-to-day
operations and you have to turn
it over to the superintendent.
"That is probably the number
one thing that a person has to
learn."
She warns potential candi-
dates that being a board mem-
ber is no longer really a part-
time job. Anyone running for
the school board needs to be
able to give a great deal of their
time.
"There are so many other
committees that you sit on; it's
not just a two meeting a month
deal," she said.


Renfro herself is the board's
liaison to the county's Planning
and Zoning Board, the District
School Advisory Committee,
and she represents the board
when meeting with county and
municipal officials developing
an impact fee policy.
In addition, she warned, a
board member attends work-
shops, both locally and in
Tampa, and sometimes has to
travel to Tallahassee to lobby
the Legislature.
One of the most important
issues facing the board in com-
ing years will be finding ways
to finance new capital construc-
tion.
This means candidates need
to study Senate Bill 360, which
was passed earlier this year, she
said. The bill mandates a
board's input in determining a
county's impact fees for new
residential construction. The
funds raised by those fees can
only be used to build new
schools or classrooms needed

as a result of an expanded pop-
ulation.
"The state is finally realizing
that school boards have to be a
part of growth management,"
she said.
Renfro also warns potential
candidates that the school board
is busier in the summer than the
school year. "That's when we
do the budget," she said.
Despite all the obligations
and occasional frustrations,
Renfro believes working on the
school board is well worth the
effort.
"My greatest pleasure," she
said, "is the time of year when
we get to go to the three com-
mencements and actually shake
hands with every .graduate in
Highlands County. It gives you
the will to go on."
As for the remainder of her
term, Renfro won't coast to the
finish. "I'm going to be diligent
with my duties to the last day,"
she said. "I'm not going to step
back."

SHS Marching Band stepping up


Special to the News-Sun "
SEBRING - The Sebring
High School Marching Band
has been entertaining crowds at
football games as well as par-
ticipating in several competi-
tions.
Daniel Frankenberger directs
the band and has brought new
life into the band program at
Sebring High School. This is
his third year at SHS and he has
overcome multiple issues to get
the band to where it is, compet-
itively speaking.
Last year's set of hurricanes
made it, almost impossible to
compete. This year, the SHS
Marching Band traveled to
Inverness to participate in the
Hurricane Pride Invitational
Marching Band Festival Oct. 8.
This is a tournament of top-
level performers arid Sebring
did even better than hoped.' The
band took home trophies for
superior drum majors, superior
drum line and third in class.
The band participated in the
Treasure Coast Crown Jewel
Marching Band Festival in
Vero Beach Oct. 15. It again
took a trophy for superior drum
major and were called back to
perform a second time in the
finals. The band placed ninth
overall.
The band will be traveling to
Okeechobee High School this
Saturday to play in the Florida
Band Association's Musical
Performance Assessment,
where it will be rated by
Florida's top judges. The band
plays at 7:20 p.m. This year's
show is titled "That Retro
Show" and features three old
favorite songs: "Domo
Orogoto, Mr. Roboto," '"The
House of the Rising Sun" and
"Age of Aquarius."
The band has roughly 100
members and a fairly large
operating expense. Besides
uniforms, the band has to pro-
vide instruments to those mem-
bers who do not have, or cannot
afford their own instruments.
The saxophones, for example,
are roughly 50 years old and
are in need of repair or replace-
ment. Transportation via buses
also needs to be paid for by the
band itself. Since most per-
formances are outside in hot
weather, the kids tend to per-
spire and their uniforms need to
be dry-cleaned after almost
every performance. To help
defray the cost, they hold sev-
eral car washes per year.
Anyone wishing to help the
band, can call the high school
at 471-5500.


Percussionists stand at attention while the band marches onto the
field at Inverness for competition.


The Sebring High School Marching Band makes impressive moves
all over the football field during competition at the Hurricane Pride
Invitational Marching Band Festival in Inverness. There were six
judges scrutinizing every move and every sound. ,

Sheriff orders review of



deputies on court procedure


I... a '


KATARA SIMMONS/News-SUit
A Sebring family is left homeless after a fire destroyed their home Saturday. Family members are (from
left) Donnie Bowers, 13; Keaundra Bowens, 12; Mae Robinson, 35; Sam Robinson, 16; Krystal
Robinson, 17; Dashaan Williams Jr., 3 months; Jahliesa Robinson, 15, and Quinten Robinson, 14.


FIRE
Continued from 1A
rent the three-bedroom home.
They have lived there with their
seven children for the more
thin two years. Donnie
Bowens, 13; Keaundra
Bowens, 12; Sam Robinson,
16; Krystal Robinson, 17;
Dashaan Williams Jr., 3 months
old; Jahliesa Robinson, 15 and
Quinten Robinson, 14; were all
home at the time of the fire,
while Watson was working.
Mae Robinson worries about
how she will be able to replace


all that was lost, such as clothes
for the kids and a roof over their
head.
"We have to spread the kids
out, we'll have to split them up
between neighbors and family
for right now," she said.
American Red Cross Service
Center Director Art Harriman
said he had not contacted the
family yet as of Saturday after-
noon, but depending on the
severity of the fire, "The family
will be offered temporary shel-
ter, food and clothing."
According to detective Kevin
Shireman, of the State Fire
Marshal's office, the fire is still
under investigation. Shireman


was able to confirm that the fire
did start in the kitchen area, but
wanted to wait for a second
opinion before he determined
the cause.
Earlier this week, Robinson
said she had noticed that the
stove felt hot, even though the
knob was in the off position.
The' stove, however had not
been used the day of the fire.
"There is probably $20,000
in damage," Shireman said.
Sebring Fire Department and
police department responded to
the scene. There were no
injuries.

No decision yet on
retraining deputies

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton
has ordered a review of
deputies to find out if they
know and -understand the rules
regarding testimony in a trial.
If they don't, she may ask
deputies ,to get retrained. She
won't make that decision until
after the review is completed.
It's possible the review may
find direct violations, which
could warrant an internal inves-
tigation.
In September, during a high-
profile robbery trial, proceed-
ings stopped to address alleged
violations of the rule of seques-
tration. The rule prohibits wit-
nesses from discussing their
testimony, evidence or other
facts of a case with any other
witness before oi after giving
testimony.
Although Samuel Etheredge,
17, Ednol Antonio Hanna III,
17, Stepfone Vadle Buckle Jr.,
17, Robert Lee Vann, 18, were
found guilty of armed robbery,
either directly or as a principal,
Benton wants to clear up con-
cerns about deputies' conduct.
Delores Williams, Buckle's
great-aunt, testified to seeing
Deputy Kris Ahler speaking

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Not knowing
exactly what Hurricane Wilma
will do, organizers for the sec-
ond annual U.S. Sport Aviation
Expo have rescheduled the
event.
It will now be Jan. 12-15,
2006.
Expo Chairman Bob Wood
- said, without knowing what the
storm would do, he couldn't be
sure the show would come off
very well. Event organizers
couldn't guarantee the planes
would be undamaged, that
crowds would come or that
there would even be rooms for
everyone.
Some of the pilots and ven-
dors were going to be coming in
from as far away as Australia,
California, Washington state,
Canada and Germany.
By moving the date, Wood
said, they ensured' having an
even bigger field of exhibitors
and visitors than they would
have had this weekend, even
without the storm.
Wood had 75 dealers or man-
ufacturers and 40 exhibitors of
aviation- or tourist-related
information. He only had two
or three empty slots, and those
got filled last week.
He anticipates that the volun-
teers and sponsors of this year's
show will continue to support
the show in January.
"We're sorry about the
change," he said. "On the other
hand, ultimately, we're going to
have a good event."
Flight demonstrations. will
include exhibits of weight shift
and trike "ultralight" craft, glid-


ers, auto-gyro craft, powered
parachutes, and standard design
light sport aircraft. Visitors can
also peruse aircraft and pilot
supplies, aircraft accessories,
and electronics.
Seminars on site will focus
on becoming a sport pilot, con-
verting a plane from ultralight
to, light sport aircraft, mainte-
nance, business opportunities,
and bu ing a sport pilot eligible
aircraft. Services on site will
include food, camping, rental
cars, hotel information and
entertainment.
The first year of the event
impressed vendors so much,
they were extremely eager to
come this year. Several reported
selling or closing sales on air-
craft at last year's event, which
is rare for any air show, espe-
cially one focusing almost
exclusively on one type of air-
craft.
In the last funding round, the
Highlands County commission

approved $20,000 to help pro-
mote the Expo this year. It was
to run from Oct. 27-30, draw
about 10,000 people from out-
side the county, 4,000 local res-
idents, and bring a $1 million
economic impact.
About 2,500 of the expected
100 vendors were expected to
stay overnight for part or all of,,
the four-night event.
Sport aviation is -involves
small, low-power planes with
fixed propellers and landing
gear. They weigh 1,232 pounds
(gross), with a maximum stall
speed of 44 mph and cruising
speed of 132 mph.
They fly "low and slow," and
don't require a private pilot's
license. It takes 20 hours of fly-
ing time to get certified, versus
40 hours for a private license,
Wood said. The planes are not
allowed to fly into major air-
ports, at night or in bad weath-
er, but they also don't require a
medical examination.

with one or more witnesses
about his testimony outside the
courtroom. Bailiff Mike
Cloninger testified to seeing
Ahler reading something that
looked like a report and having
questioned him about it in the
stairwell off the courthouse atri-
um.
Ahler, however, said he
never read another deputy's
report, bit was joking with him
about not knowing they were
both at the scene of arrest.
Circuit Court Judge Olin
Shinholser didn't find anything
in testimony that constituted a
clear violation, however, he
requested that Benton conduct
an investigation into the matter.
He said didn't like the "appear-
ance of impropriety" or Ahler's
demeanor when questioned
about the matter, either by attor-
neys in the courtroom or by the
bailiff outside the courtroom.
Benton wants to know if she
needs to retrain deputies on
proper courtroom procedure.
She has asked Maj. Robert Lee
and Capt. Mark Schrader to
conduct a review of deputies'
knowledge of courtroom proce-
dure.
Specifically, she wants to
know if the deputies who were
under subpoena during the rob-
bery trial knew what it meant
for them to be sequestered, if
they were told, and what they

tracking just south of Highlands
County, with tropical storm
winds hitting the south end.
The storm was dissipating
somewhat at 11 a.m. Saturday.
Henley said wind sheer condi-
tions might break up the storm
even more, but deviation of as
little as 30-40 miles could have

were told.
An anonymous survey will
go to all members of her organ-
ization who were involved with
the trial, she said. A separate
survey will go to everyone
working at the Highlands
County' Sheriff's Office to
determine employees' general
knowledge of court proceed-
ings, specifically, the rule of
sequestration.
If possible, the survey may
be able to show if there were
any weaknesses in other parts
of the judicial system, either in
the courthouse or at the state
attorney's office.
"My thoughts are there was a
system-wide failure," Benton
said Friday.
Although she hasn't ordered
an internal investigation on any
particular deputy, she wants to
know if deputies witnessed any
violations of the rule, as they
understood it, and if so, by
whom and when. Should Lee or
Schrader find any evidence of
direct violations, Benton wants
them to stop the review to pro-
tect deputies' rights against
improper procedure, and begin
a direct internal investigation.
Contrary to other news
reports, Benton has made no
decision on what the sheriff's
office will do, because the
study is not yet completed.
Retraining is one option.

Henley expects to see tornados
when the cold front interacts
with the hurricane.
Gale force winds - 39 mph
- should reach Highlands
County by 3 a.m. Monday,
Henley said, with tropical force
winds (39 mph) by 9 a.m. Wind
predictions are for 50-60 mph
winds with gusts up to 70 mph,
stronger to the south and south
east of the county. Estimated
rainfall for the storm is four to
seven inches.
Henley estimated that the
county should get clear of gale
force winds by 4 p.m. Monday.
The storm is expected to speed
up from 15 mph when it enters
the state to 30 mph when it
leaves.

TUFFIN IT
WITH, TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Nothing

was quite

right
My introduction to clown-
ing was not auspicious; I had
everything wrong right from
the start.
Clowning turns out to be a
very structured art form, with
strict rules, and I'd broken
several before I was even fully
dressed.
To begin with, there are
only three types of clown faces
to choose from, and the faces
have to match the costume a
clown chooses to wear.
I had put together a costume
from a collection of clown
clothing my editor had in her
closet (and no I'm not going to
go there - editors in clown
clothing is just too easy a
joke).
I had selected baggy plaid
pants with raggedy cuffs and
bright patches, yellow sus-
penders, and a red and white
striped shirt.
To that I had added one of
my own ties, in bright blue,
purple and yellow, one bright
yellow sock and one in electric
magenta. I wore them with
sandals, and topped them off
with a rainbow curly wig.
I thought I looked bright,
upbeat and silly.
All wrong.

Clown, who had taken me.

Clowning


Taking fun seriously


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID
The art of clowning is as
old as laughter.
According to the
Clowns of America
International's Web site,
one Chinese clown is
credited with saving
thousands of workers'
lives when he con-
vinced his emperor,
through humor, to aban-
don the idea of painting
[lie Great Wall of China.
Clowns became organized
as the centuries passed, with spe-
cific characters evolving over time.
Now there are only three faces from which to
choose, and four types of clowns to become.
A clown can be a specific character. For example, a
pirate, a doctor, or a fireman. Those clowns typically
use the Auguste (German for fool) makeup, which
highlights the mouth and eyes.
The only clown type to be developed in America,
the hobo/tramp clown has a particular makeup and
costume. A tramp should look.sad, but a hobo may
look happy. They both wear dark colors, and the
makeup is a modified Auguste face.
The white face clown is the typical circus clown.
In the ring, he or she is the clown in charge.
The face, neck, ears, and all exposed skin, is col-
ored white. These clowns often wear the traditional
one piece suit with a ruffled collar, and a conical hat.
Good clowns are disguised by their makeup, and
have learned to move in clown like ways. It is a cardi-
nal rule to never hurt anyone.
For example, a clown will never spray someone
else with water.
Clown humor is very basic, and while traditional,
often relies .on surprise. They use puns, pratfalls, set
pieces and mime to get laughs.
In one skit, for instance, two clowns may sip coffee
out of mugs, with one clown laughing hysterically as
she or he sips. After several outbreaks of guffaws, the
serious clown asks why all the laughter. "The coffee
tastes funny," is the reply. .

Central Florida Cabinets puts focus on real wood products


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - James E.
Wood III is wild about wood.
He and partner, Roland
Espildora, have recently
expanded Central Florida
Cabinets.
"We distribute the semi-cus-
tom line of Showplace Wood
Products. They're the best dis-
tributor I've dealt with. It has a
versatile, all-wood selection.
There is a wide variety of
species and door styles for peo-
ple on a budget as well as for
those with multi-million dollar
homes," Wood said.
Showplace cabinetry can be
used in kitchens, baths, and
offices. It's a way to express
personality and creativity
through styles, woods and fin-
ishes. "It can move your setting
to above the ordinary, yet it
offers value that makes sense on
the bottom line," Wood said.
Wood graduated from Lake
Placid High School, was in the


Air Force during Desert Storm
and later owned Custom Milco
Millworks in Phoenix, Ariz. In
2000, he moved back and
worked for some local compa-
nies, then incorporated in 2003.
Wood grew up in the family
cabinet business and has more
than 18 years experience. He is
forward thinking about design.
"Different materials are used
now. Everything is more
advanced. We chose to stay in
Lake Placid because we could
see that buyers with more
sophisticated taste are filtering
in. We are willing to wait for the
growth of our company. This
building is new to us and we
occupy 10,000 square feet
which includes showroom,
warehouse and manufacturing,"
Wood said.
They carry all kinds of count-
er tops - solid surface, granite,
plastic laminate, quartz and cul-
tured marble.
"I can hit all the price ranges.
I'm real customer oriented, and


this is personal to me. When
you' wake up every morning, I
want you to be thrilled when
you look at your cabinetry. It's
like fine furniture, but a perma-
nent part of the house," Wood
said.
All the measuring and cus-
tom computer-aided design are
free of charge 'by Wood.
"I like people to come in and
feel like they've learned some-
thing so they are able to make a
good choice. We're not the
cheapest, but we are the best.
Aesthetics are our focal point,"
Woods said.
The exciting thing is that
people can see the CAD on the
computer screen. Wood can
build new, remodel, or work off
a person's existing plans. From
the computer screen, the client
can see the cabinetry from
many different viewpoints. If
something needs to be changed,
like a bank of drawers, the com-
puter automatically shows the
options, updates the price, and


stores it in the computer.
"People are always surprised
with what is possible," Wood
said.
Wood does commercial busi-
nesses, in-home offices and
entertainment centers.
"We're excited and growing.
Last year, I was the largest
Showplace dealer in the state of
Florida. This year we've
already doubled that amount,"
Wood said.
Central Florida Cabinets



i


received the News-Sun's
Reader's Choice Award, and
belong not only to the Better
Business Bureau, as well as the
Lake Placid and Sebring cham-
bers of commerce and the
Highlands County Builders
Association.
"We carry the Belwith Keder
line, which has the largest
selection of hardware in Lake
Placid. We also carry Berenson,
Liberty, and Amerock hard-
ware. None of Central Florida


Cabinets are made of particle
board. Our cabinets are all
wood, because I want to make
things to be proud of," Wood
said.

121 Commerce Ave., first right
off Devane Circle. For details,

under his wing for the morn-
ing, shook his head sadly on
seeing me for the first time.
The raggedy pants I was
dressed in fit the hobo/tramp
mold he explained. That's a
specific clown category. But
hobos and tramps are supposed
to be somberly dressed, in
black, gray, brown or tan, and I
was way too festive.
Also my wig was wrong. I'd
chosen a rainbow curly one,
but a tramp would never wear
such a colorful wig, he
explained, and anyway mine
needed a good picking.
Even my nose, a large red
foam ball, was too big.
Then there was the matter of
my beard. Stokes said he
wished I had shaved.
Tramp and hobo makeup
requires the mouth to be heavi-
ly emphasized, with a down-
ward turn. The beard made
doing that impossible.
White face (where the face,
- ;neck and ears'are completely
. covered in white) also was
ruled out for the same reason.
That meant Stokes had to
devise a modified Auguste
makeup for me.
The Auguste (German for
fool) makeup ri-elies on outlin-
ing the mouth and eyes in
white, sometimes with black
accents. The outlining is very


important, and of course, the
beard made that hard. He per-
severed, however, and by load-
ing the beard with white, man-
aged a pretty decent approxi-
mation.
While Stokes was scandal-
ized at my inappropriate com-
binations, Stokes the civilian
was kind and forgiving.
Then came the hard part -
going out into the world and
acting silly.
One of the first things
Stokes taught me was that
clowns are serious, but still
need to have fun.
"If you aren't enjoying .it,"
he said, "then (the audience)
can't enjoy you."
He pointed to my mis-
matched socks and asked me
what I thought I should say
about them.
"I have a pair just like them
at home?" I suggested.
"I'm looking for my mate,"
he bellowed in reply - i.e.,
don't be subtle.
We arrived at Heron's
restaurant, where a room full
of Red Hat Ladies waited to be
entertained.
Toby had given me a feather
duster and roll of paper tickets.
I was supposed to "clean up"
my act and hand out free tick-
ets. When anyone asked me
what the ticket was for I was
supposed to say, "It isn't good
for anything, but it's free." And
then I should dust their plates
off.

I was embarrassed to discov-
er that even behind clown
makeup I was a little bit shy. It
proved hard for me to let go
and be silly.
It didn't help that I had to be
a reporter as well, and take
photographs and notes while I
was clowning. It gave me an
excuse to duck some of my
clown responsibilities,
although I enjoyed hearing the
good ladies laugh.
For example, at one point a
Red Hat Lady mentioned my
socks. Right away Toby said,
"What do you say?"
I knew what I was supposed
to say. But somehow I couldn't
quite yell out that I was look-
ing for a mate.
Which just goes to show
clowning is a matter of the
heart, not the surface.
Good clowns don't cling to
their dignity, which means I
was inappropriate in more
ways than one.

panies.
Local clown clubs are called Clown Alleys.
As part of their outreach programs, members
provide entertainment at festivals, or for nursing
homes, hospitals and schools, among many ven-
ues. Toby's Clown Alley has 85 members.
Toby founded and is president of the Toby the
Clown Foundation. This is a non-profit organi-
zation dedicated to teaching the clown arts.
"I realized that to perpetuate what I had start-
ed, I should teach others," he said.
He has graduated 600 clowns from his clown
college. Most of the graduates perform regularly
at events around Highlands-County.-
He also. works with South Florida Community
College's elderhostel program and runs a special
five-day, 40-hour class there. "It's huge," he
said.


The Clown Alley has a Junior Joey program .
for children from 5-17 years of age.
Stokes' enthusiasm is infectious. When the
late John Gutcher, the artist who painted the
Lake Placid mural titled "Toby's Clown
School," he became so inspired he became a
clown himself.
The foundation's clown college holds two
sessions a year. The fall class begins in
September, and the winter session begins in
January. Both sessions run for eight classes,
which are at 7 p.m. Monday. Professional make-
up is included in the cost of the program, which
is $185.
Stokes' clowns mostly work for the fun of it,
doing all kinds of charity work. Professional
:clowns can earn an excellent living, depending
on the type'of clowvniig, their talent, experience
and the size of the venue.
Toby the Clown Foundation is at 112 W.
Interlake Blvd. The phone number is 465-2920.

The Highlands Association of Realtors Inc. would like to thank all of those who dropped off suitcases, backpacks, etc., for the
'Suitcases for Kids' project. 'We collected and delivered over 300 pieces, some going right here to our own shelter. Associations all
over Florida participated in this project, some with thousands of members, but our comparatively little group collected more than
any other. We owe all the thanks to the folks here, who donated so generously,' said Arianna Jordan Burke, association executive. 'It
was awesome, some people who came in with their bags, shared their own experiences as a foster child or as a foster parent, and how
helping the kids now means so much to them,' Burke said. Members (from left) Moe Veissi, 2002 president of Florida Association of

Quake survivors tussle for food


By EN-LAI YEOH
Associated Press Writer
GHANOOL, Pakistan -
About 200 desperate people
pushed and fought each other
for milk, bread and other food
brought in Friday by mule train.
A helicopter carrying more
supplies turned back after see-
ing the chaos below in the set-
tlement of Ghanool in
Pakistan's North West Frontier
Province.
In. other mountain villages,
survivors were' still crying out
for shelter from the frigid
weather. The Oct. 8 quake left
some 3.3 million people home-
less and killed nearly 80,000.
"It's horrible," said Hanna
Mattinen, an aid worker with
the group Action ' Against
Hujpger in the village of Paras,
which needed 1,000 tents' but'


only had 150. Men were forced
to sleep outside, while women
and children shared the. tents.
"The needs are just inde-
scribable," Mattinen said.
In Kashmir, snow has begun
to fall in high mountains, and
temperatures are dipping below
freezing in some villages at
night. Aid workers fear casual-
ties will rise because communi-
ties are without adequate food,
shelter or health care.
Turkish Prime Minister
Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered
$150 million in cash and aid
after he surveyed the devasta-
tion Friday by helicopter with
Pakistan's Prime Minister
Shaukat Aziz.
"We will do whatever is pos-
sible to assist you in this crisis,"
Erdogan said in Muzaffarabad,
the capital of Pakistani-con-


trolled Kashmir.
The pledge made Turkey the
biggest single donor nation so
far in a faltering relief effort.
U.N. relief coordinator Jan
Egeland says the U.N. has.
received only 27 percent of its
appeal for $312 million in
quake relief.
Egeland called on NATO
countries to launch "a second
Berlin airlift," referring to the
nonstop lights by Western
pilots into West Berlin in the
late 1940s when Soviet, force.
sealed off the city.
NATO was debating a plan
Friday to send up to 1,000 sol-
diers to the quake area, as well
as medical units to set up a field
hospital. The alliance was also
looking at providing more heli-
copters for the relief effort.

Saddam trial defense


lawyer
By THOMAS WAGNER
Associated Press Writer
BAGHDAD; Iraq - A
defense lawyer in Saddam
Hussein's mass murder trial has
been found dead, his body
dumped near a Baghdad
mosque with two gunshots to
the head, police and a top
lawyers union official said
Friday.
Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi
was abducted from his office
Thursday evening, a day after
he attended the first session of
the trial, acting as the lawyer of
one of Saddam's seven co-
defendants.
His body was found hours
later on a sidewalk near
Fardous Mosque in the eastern
neighborhood of Ur, near the
site of his office, said police
Maj. Falah al-Mohammedawi.
His identity was confirmed
Friday, al-Mohammedawi said.
Diaa al-Saadi, a senior offi-
cial in the lawyers syndicate,
said al-Janabi's family con-
firmed to him al-Janabi was
dead. "This will have. grave
repercussions. This will hinder
lawyers from defending those
held for political reasons," al-
Saadi warned.
The killing was the first set-
back for a tribunal that has been
held under tight security.
Heavy protection ,was pro-
vided for prosecutors and
judges in the- Saddam trial, on
the theory that they were likely
targets of pro-Saddam insur-
gents seeking revenge. Their
names have not been revealed
and their faces were not shown
in the broadcast of
Wednesday's opening session
- with the exception of the
presiding judge and the top
prosecutor, whose identities
were revealed for the first time
just before the trial.
But security measures do not
appear to have been extended to
the defense lawyers for Saddam
and his seven co-defendants.
' AI-Janabi was defending
Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the
former head of Saddam's
Revolutionary Court. Saddam
and the seven top officials from
his Baath regime could face a'
death sentence if convicted in
their trial on charges of murder
and torture in a 1982 massacre
of 148 Shiites in the town of
Dujail.
Saddam's chief lawyer,
Khalil al-Dulaimi, said after the
kidnapping that defense
lawyers have gotten many
threats in past weeks - by e-
mail, cell phone text message
and by telephone. He did not
specify if they were from
Saddam opponents angry at
their defending Saddam's'
regime or from Sunni support-
ers angry that they were parti-
pating in the trial at all.
"We condemn this. killing,
which does not serve the inter-
ests of the trial or of the politi-
cal process," said government
spokesman Laith Kubba.
"We do not know who was
behind this operation. Is it
designed to hinder the trial
process or is it an case of
vendetta? We don't know," he
said.
During Wednesday's session,
al-Janabi, with silver hair and a
dark black moustache, sat with
the 12 other defense lawyers in
two rows of desks to the right of
their clients. Al-Janabi was in
the front row and spoke at least
once during the session, but did
not stand out compared with al-
Dulaimi or others who spoke
more often or more combative-
ly with the judge.'
He was snatched from his
'office in the Shaab district,
which for months has been the
scene of attacks by insurgents
and violence between its mixed
population of Sunnis and
Shiites.
In May, gunmen killed a
Shiite Muslim cleric, and the
bullet-ridden bodies of' two
missing Sunni clerics who had
been kidnapped were found
there. On Aug. 12, members of


a Shiite Muslim militia freed
four hostages from a home in
Shaab.
The district is close to Sadr
City, a large mostly Shiite and
poor area of Baghdad that is a
stronghold of the Shiite Mahdi
Army militia. On Thursday,
Rory Carroll, 33, the Baghdad
correspondent for the British


found dead


newspaper The Guardian was
released unharmed in Sadr City,
a day after being kidnapped
there by unidentified gunmen.
A group of Sadr City residents
reportedly raided the area
where he was being held by
criminals and freed him.
Saddam and his co-defen-
dants pleaded innocent in the
trial, which was adjourned until
Nov. 28.
But in the meantime, the
court will hear its first prosecu-
tion witness: a Wadah Ismail al-
Sheik, a bedridden cancer
patient who was director of the
investigation department at
Saddam's feared Mukhabarat
intelligence agency at the time
of the Dujail massacre. Court
officials will go Sunday to his
hospital to take his testimony,
court officials said on condition
of anonymity because of the
sensitivity of the subject.
Meanwhile, teams of interna-
tional and Iraqi election offi-
cials were visiting several
provinces on Friday to audit ini-
tial results from Iraq's constitu-
tional referendum that showed
an unexpectedly high number
of "yes" -votes. Nearly one
week after the historic vote,
Iraqis are still awaiting the out-
come of the referendum, an
important step in the democrat-
ic process that could one day
lead to the withdrawal of U.S.-
led forces.
As Iraqis prepared to attend
services at mosques on Friday,
the Muslim day of worship, the
bodies of three policemen who


had been blindfolded and shot
in the head by insurgents near
the Jordanian border were
brought to the capital, police
said. Another body of a civilian
who had been killed in captivi-
ty was found in central
Baghdad, police said.
Gunmen also opened fire on
a civilian car carrying Interior
Ministry police commandos,
killing four of them and wound-
ing four, said police Lt. Waleed
Al-Khazraji.
The U.S. military also report-
ed that one of its Black Hawk
helicopters made a hard landing
while responding to a medical
evacuation request from sol-
diers wounded by a roadside
bomb in southern Baghdad late
Thursday night. A second heli-
copter went to evacuate them.
Fighting also continued in
Operation River Gate, an offen-
sive by 3,000 U.S.and Iraqi
forces that began Oct. 4 in and
around Haditha, 140 miles
northwest of Baghdad.
Associated Press Television
News video showed U.S. tanks
on the outskirts of Haditha, hel-
icopters circling overhead and
American soldiers moving
through the city Thursday.
Crackles of gunfire could be
heard. In Baghdad, the U.S.
military said Friday that it had
no new information about the
offensive or casualties in ,the
fighting.

AP correspondent Ben Curtis in
Baghdad contributed to this
report.

School board tries for

'impacted student' $$$$


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 shdre on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Dec. 11, 1975.
Federal funding for "impact-
ed" students is being sought by
the Highlands County School
Board in an effort to ease the
slings and arrows of a tight
budget. Tuesday night Aubrey
Morris, supervisor of federal
and vocational programs, was
authorized to
prepare an
application for
the funds.
"Impacted
students" are ' i
those whose f
parents live on
government
property or
work for the federal govern-
ment and are not paying taxes
because of that affiliation. This
includes the children of service-
men, here or abroad, civil ser-
vants, civilians working on fed-
eral projects and so forth, said
Morris. Postal employees are
excluded.
If the application is approved.
and Morris said there is a very
good chance that it will be, the
federal government furnishes
dollars to make up for what is
not paid into the local economy.
The main chance for accept-
ance lies in Avon Park, said
Morris where the Bombing
Range and the federal housing
project can possibly produce
about 250 eligible children. An
additional 50 are expected on a


countywide basis.
In recent years impact funds
have been hard to get (non for
low-income housing) he told
the board, but this year the gov-
ernment has loosened up on
money for impact students and
for the handicapped.
Morri s also called to the
fore when Smith reported that a
vocational grant of $23,289 had
been awarded for a vocational
reading program at Avon Park
High School. Morris said the
APHS program had been one of
many in a package of proposals
suggested by the late superin-
tendent George Douglass.
"We sent out a great number
of applications for grants each
year. There is
..--7r always, one or
two you can get
� approved."
tie "What if we
refused a feder-
al grant?" asked
Steve Roberts.
"I've heard a lot
of talk in
Touchton's and people say that
if it weren't for all those grants,
our taxes wouldn't be so high.
So, what would happen if we
decided not to accept the
grants'?"
"The state would reallocate it
to another district," replied
Morris.
"You mean it would be spent
anyway?"
"It would be spent."
Another board member sug-
gested that every school district
in the state could refuse the
grant. The superintendent said
that if enough districts refused
the federal grant for vocational
items, the money would only be
moved around to another kind
of program.


By EDITH M. LEDERER
Associated Press Writer
UNITED NATIONS - A
U.N. investigation concluded
that high-ranking Syrian and
Lebanese security officials
were involved in the assassina-
tion of former Lebanese Prime
Minister Rafik Hariri, accord-
ing to a report released
Thursday.
The report by chief investi-
gator Detlev Mehlis - said
Hariri's Feb. 14 assassination
was so complex that it would be
difficult to imagine that the
Syrian and Lebanese intelli-
-gence services didn't know
about it.
The decision to assassinate
Hariri "could not have been
taken without the approval of
top-ranked Syrian security offi-
cial and could not have been
further organized without the
collusion of their counterparts


in the Lebanese security servic-
es," the report said.
Mehlis wrote that the two
nations' intelligence services
kept tabs on Hariri by wiretap-
ping his phone constantly.
The 53-page report said that
the investigation is not com-
plete and must be continued
with Lebanese judicial and
security authorities in the lead.
Several lines of investigation
still need to be pursued, he said.
They include jamming devices
in Hariri's convoy that were
functioning at the time of the
bombing. It appears there was
interference with a telecommu-
nication antenna at the crime
scene at the time Hariri was
killed in a massive car bomb,
Mehlis wrote.
In Lebanon, authorities had
increased security ahead of the
report's findings.

Miers will keep visiting senators, despite strategy naysayers


By JESSE J. HOLLAND
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Supreme
Court nominee Harriet Miers
will continue meeting with sena-
tors next week, the White House
said Friday, despite calls from


some conservatives who said the
courtesy visits aren't helping and
she should focus instead on
preparing for her confirmation
hearing.
"She's done about 25 visits so
far, and she's got about a dozen


next week," White House
spokesman Jim Dyke said
Friday. "We get advice on a regu-
lar basis from outside groups. It
doesn't mean it's going to hap-
pen."
In a conference call Thursday,
some conservatives suggested
Miers should stop calling on sen-
ators, saying that the visits,
which have included some strate-
gic stumbles on her part, have
not been helping the White
House counsel's nomination as
the replacement for retiring
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
The conservatives on the call
were airing their views to
Leonard Leo, who is on leave as
executive vice president of the
Federalist Society to help the
White House shepherd Miers'
nomination through the Senate.
While those discussions were


going on, "we were adding con-
gressional visits to her already
established schedule for next
week," Dyke said.
Miers has faced attacks from
both sides of the political spec-
trum though none of the
Senate's majority Republicans
has come out against her.
President Bush's claim that she
is the most qualified candidate
has been roundly criticized by
conservatives who wanted him
to look to conservative federal
judges like Priscilla Owen or
Janice Rogers Brown.
Bush said Thursday that
Miers' confirmation process will
show a "competent, strong, capa-
ble woman who shares the same
judicial philosophy that I share."
Miers has faced some criti-
cism this week from senators,
with some complaining that she


has been vague in their private
meetings with her and others
complaining about her answers
to a written questionnaire that
the Judiciary Committee sent
her.
"I would say that to this point
Ms. Miers' efforts to win support
have not been successful," said
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., a mem-
ber of the Judiciary Committee,
on Thursday.
Dyke said the process is mov-
ing forward for Miers. "As far as
this week is concerned, you've
seen this process move forward
and that's important, and you
have learned more about her
judicial philosophy and her quali-
fications and her experiences, all
important considerations for sen-
ators," he said.
Senators have set her confir-
mation hearing date for Nov. 7.


When it comes to the incom-
plete answers on her Judiciary
Committee questionnaire, "she
told Sen. Specter in her first
meeting that she had a lot of
information back in Texas based
on her 30-year .career and that
she may have to sort of produce
that on a rolling basis, so that
continues to happen," Dyke said.
Miers also has been promoted
this week by her former col-
leagues from Texas, including
the Dallas Bar Association and a
group of former Texas state jus-
tices, who came up to the White
House earlier this week to pro-
mote her nomination.
On Friday, members of the
Texas Bar Association were to
promote Miers' qualifications
during a news conference in the
Capitol.


By PETE YOST
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Even if
White House aides leaked a
covert CIA officer's identity, they
were simply passing along infor-
mation they'd already heard
from the news media, the admin-
istration's supporters maintain in
a defense that looks increasing
shaky as new evidence accumu-
lates.
Special . Counsel Patrick
Fitzgerald now knows that Vice
President Dick Cheney's chief of
staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby,
met three times with a New York
Times reporter before the leak
of Valerie Plame's identity, that
Libby initiated a call to NBC
newsman Tim Russert and that
Libby was a confirming source
about the wife of Bush adminis-
tration critic Joseph Wilson for a
Time magazine reporter.
Presidential political adviser
Karl Rove has testified that it's
possible Libby was his source
before Rove talked to two
reporters about the CIA opera-
tive.
Where Libby first heard the
information still isn't publicly
known, but a full three weeks
before Plame's name first
showed up in print, Libby was
telling New York Times reporter
Judith Miller that he thought
Wilson's wife worked for the
CIA, according to Miller's testi-
mony.
While Libby maintains that he
didn't know Plame's name until it
was published in the news
media, the now-public evidence
suggests Libby at least was
aware that Wilson's wife worked
at the.CIA and that he spread the
information.
Prosecutors must determine
whether it was part of an effort


to undermine the credibility of
Plame's husband. Leaking the
identity of a covert agent can be
a crime, but it must be done
knowingly.
Plame's name was first made
public by syndicated columnist
Robert Novak in July 2003, eight
days after Wilson published an
op-ed piece in The New York
Times.

Stocks

mixed on

Google,

Caterpillar

reports
By CHRISTOPHER WANG
AP Business Writer e
NEW YORK - Stocks trad-
ed mostly higher Friday, with
strong quarterly earnings from
Google Inc. lifting the tech sec-
tor and Caterpillar Inc.'s lack-
luster results dragging down
the Dow Jones industrials.
Friday's skittish session fol-
lowed a turbulent week on Wall
Street as renewed fears about
inflation and economic growth
overshadowed mostly positive
third-quarter profit reports
from some of the nation's
biggest companies.
While falling oil prices gave
the market an early boost, the
Dow headed downward shortly
after the open and extended its
133-point slide from Thursday,
when other major indexes also
lost more than 1 percent.
Michael Sheldon, chief mar-
ket strategist at Spencer Clarke
LLC, said although third-quar-
ter corporate earnings have so
far been favorable, the market
is still battling three major
headwinds - rising interest
rates, inflation and energy
prices.
"Right now, I think the mar-
ket needs a catalyst in order to
get out of this difficult environ-
ment," Sheldon said.
"Hopefully if oil prices contin-
ue to decline and move back
into the mid $50s, that could
turn sentiment more positive on
Wall Street."
In early afternoon trading,
.the Dow fell 32.26, or 0.31 per-
cent, to 10,248.84, after sinking
almost 90 points in morning
activity.
Meanwhile, the broader
stock indicators advanced. The
Standard & Poor's 500 index
added 4.48, or 0.3,9 percent, to
1,182.28, and the Nasdaq com-
posite index jumped 17.57, or
0.85 percent, to 2,085.68.
Bonds gained ground, with
the yield on the 10-year
Treasury note sliding to 4.39
percent from 4.48 percent
Thursday. The dollar was
mixed against most major cur-
rencies, while gold prices
climbed.
Crude oil slipped below $60
a barrel Friday on eased supply
concerns following recent gov-
ernment reports indicating U.S.
petroleum inventories have
been increasing. A barrel of
light crude dropped 37 cents to
$59.65 on the New York
Mercantile Exchange.
Late Thursday, Web search
company Google said its profit
grew more than sevenfold to
$381.2 million as revenue near-
ly doubled to $1.58 billion, lift-
ed by new services that drove
traffic during the typically slow
summer season. Google surged
$37.28 to $340.48.
The tech sector saw another
bright spot in flash-memory
maker SanDisk Corp., whose
quarterly profit almost doubled
- easily beating Wall Street
targets - on revenue growth of
45 percent. SanDisk gained
$8.71 to $55.09.
Dow component Caterpillar
posted a 34 percent rise in
quarterly profit on strong glob-
al demand and improved
prices, but the construction
equipment maker slashed its
full-year outlook because of
potential charges and a higher
tax rate. Caterpillar dropped
$4.89 to $49.14.
AT&T Corp. reversed a mas-
sive year-ago deficit to post a
$520 million profit last quarter,
although revenue in its core
business services unit declined
10 percent. The results, which
beat Wall Street targets, may be


AT&T's last before it is
acquired by SBC
Communications Inc. AT&T
gained 46 cents to $19.04, and
SBC rose 52 cents to $23.06.
Maytag Corp., the nation's
second-biggest appliance man-
ufacturer, reported a wider-
than-expected quarterly loss as
excess capacity and soaring oil
and material costs weighed on
its bottom line. Maytag
dropped 31 cents to $16.88.
Copier and printer maker
Xerox Corp. added 70 cents to
$13.11 after the company's
adjusted profit.


Winning message


Lake Placid High
School senior Evan
Montgomery said he
didn't know how long it
would take for the writ-
ing on his back to wear
off, but he didn't really
care after taking part in
the Green Dragons'
winning 400-yard
freestyle relay team at
the District 5-1A meet
in Winter Haven on
Wednesday. That win'
helped the Dragon boys
claim the district cham-,
pionship and earned
Montgomery a trip to
the regional meet in
Orlando on Saturday.
Though he is a senior,
Montgomery is a first-
year swimmer and thus
had to suffer through
the tradition pre-district
head-shaving that all
new Lake Placid swim-
mers must undergo.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan. Merop


The eye of

the beholder
On the front of the card,
a whimsical drawing of a
young woman wearing a
huge hat and looking out
over the ocean was accom-
panied by the word, "Sh-h-
h" I opened the card and
birthday greetings of exqui-
site beauty washed over me.
The card didn't tell me I
was smart, pretty, fortunate,
deserving or clever. Instead,
it wrapped me in silent
wonder as the arm of my
Creator came around me,
drew me to him and said
that I was incredibly special
to him.
Words below that said;
"And me." My cousin's sig-
nature followed and I felt
blessed. No need to run to
the mirror to see if I meas-
ured up. The Bible verse
accompanying the birthday
message said it all.
"For you created my
inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's
womb. I praise you because
I am fearfully and wonder-
fully made; your works are
wonderful, I know that full
well." (Psalm 139: 13-14,
NIV)
As we come to know our
Creator personally through
a relationship with Jesus
Christ, we develop a,
healthy self-image based on
his assessment of us. He
beholds his creation and
finds it very good.
But, we often believe the
lies that are told about us.
We become so self-con-
scious and interested in our
self-esteem apart from God
that we lose our identity
instead of finding it. ,
Never satisfied, we fall
victim to unkind words, sly
glances and the fashion
industry that promotes skin-
deep beauty. Even the word
"deep" should be replaced
with "surface" because
there is very little depth to
the image portrayed..
Except, perhaps, in how
deeply we are affected in
our emotions and spirit.
God continually reminds
us that-what is in the heart
is what matters since the
heart overflows into all of
life. If we're only beautiful
on the outside and follow
the fashion industry's call to
expose more and more of
the "skin-surface" beauty,
we are cheating ourselves
and attracting the wrong
kind of attention.
The Lord has made us
complete beings, body,
soul, mind and spirit. When
this whole person recog-
nizes the One who fash-
ioned her; when she bows
before him in humility and
comes to know him person-
ally - then she can be truly
all she has been created to
be.
And as her beauty over-
flows from a heart filled
with God-pleasing attitudes,
it will affect how she cares
for her body, appearance
and self-image.
They say that beauty is in
the .eye of the beholder.
Who is it that you want
beholding you? For whom
do you dress, conduct your-
self and use your talents?
When we seek to please
God, the eye of the most
important beholder will nod
his approval. We'll feel him
reach out, draw us close
and say, "You are incredibly
special." Selah.

Florida's longest

On Oct. 11. she observed 22

In 19S3. she became sick
and \went to the former Walker
Memorial Hospital in A\on
Park % here doctors diagnosed
her condition. She lhad to
receive clearance from her den-
tist. gynecologist,. and other
docLtors to show she had no
infections. It look three months
of preparations to get on the
Donor Registry. On Sept. 30.
1983. when they notified her of
her eligibility, she had no pager

they would call to notify her

At the time, she was a 36-

felt it was her lucky day. She
received a grant from Emory
University as a study patient.
That combined with Medicare,
paid her medical costs.
At the time, Florida Hospital
was doing transplants, but with
limited experience. Tampa and
Miami hospitals had done sev-
eral, but since the Orlando hos-
pital worked with Emory


" Snyder said. "I won the lot-
tery."
The donor was a 22-year-old
male who died in an auto acci-
dent in Jacksonville, according
to Snyder.
"I'd love to meet his family
and let them know what their
decision did for me. I think
about it every morning when I
wake up. I realize I'm still here


wish was that my new kidney
would work - I wet the bed.
Everyone clapped and was so
happy that it was working,"
Snyder said.
Snyder still has the same
kidney. and never experienced
rejection with it, although she
had pneumonia at one time and
this past July she was bitten by
a brown recluse spider.
"The kidney
acted funny. I
was told that in
24 hours I could
have lost my leg
because of my
immunity sup-
pression. My
leg is still black
from that bite,"
Snyder said.
Snyder is
faithful about
taking her miedi-
cine and that's
half the battle.
"During my sur-
gery and recu-
peration at the
hospital, my
mother never
left my side. In
fact they bought

me to Orlando

Srnyder celebrated with her

transplanted kidney.
'Although there have been
more and more advances with
medicine, Fm still on the old
stuff. After \ears of using

Although she still has some

teaching certification, she still
works, and in July 2007 she
will corriplete 30 years as a
teacher at Avon Park
Correctional Institution.
"I've been a widow for 12
years. But I'll pick up the
grandkids and Mom and we'll

Organ donors needed to save lives
More than 89.000 patients nationwide are currently) waiting
for organ transplants. About 750 are from South Flonda.
Surgery success rates have improved, hut there's a grow ng
shortage of organs and tissues. Ever) day 17 patients will die
waiting for an organ transplant:
* More than 5.800 patients die each year because a trans-
plant is not accepted
* Nearly 23.000 transplant operations were performed last
year, but only 12.000 people donated organs
* More than 2.200 patients on the national waiting list are
children
* It is possible to transplant 25 different organs and tissues,
including heart, heart nahes, liver. kidneys. bone and cartilage,
bone marrow, pancreas, lungs. intestine and more.

University, that's where the
surgery was performed. Eleten
days later she was notified that
she was a backup - in case the
patient of first choice was
incompatible. When they
injected the patient with fluid
from the new kidney, she
immediately rejected it, and
Snyder was next.
"'Right after they called that

taken off the peritoneal and

said.
Finally at 6 p.m., the six-

Teach children to do 'write' thing


Question: I've always had
an interest in creative writing,
primarily because I had a
teacher who encouraged me to
express myself and gave me the
skills to do it. My kids, howev-
er, have not had that exposure.
The school system just doesn't
teach writing skills anymore.
How did you come to be a
writer, and how might I give my
children a nudge in that direc-
tion?
Dr. Dobson: It is true that
writing skills are seldom taught
today. That was evident a while
back when I was considering
hiring a Ph.D. candidate from a
large university. I called her
major professor for a recom-
mendation. He spoke highly of
this woman and said he was
sure she would do a good job
for me. I then asked if she was
an adequate writer. He said:
"Are you kidding? None of my
students have strong writing
skills. Young people don't learn
to put their thoughts on paper
these days." He was right!
It hasn't always been that
way. I remember diagramming
sentences and learning parts of
speech wheri I was in elemen-
tary school. It was a major part
of the curriculum. Also, my par-
ents encouraged and helped me
to grow in this area. I wrote a
letter to a friend when I was 9


Discarded me
Dear Abby:
When my beloved Mama
died early this year, she left
behind hundreds - if not thou-
sands - of dollars worth of var-
ious medicines.
My sister and I called every
hospital, shelter, clinic and aid
agency we could think of, but
not one could give medicine to
people unless it had come
directly from a pharmacy.
Finally, someone suggested that
we call our veterinarian.
Voila! It turned out that many
of the gauzes, tapes, antibiotic
and antihistamine creams, pain
patches, pills, inhalers, glucose
regulators, collection pans,
gloves and other miscellaneous
items could be used on animals.
Mama would be so pleased to
know that we found a good use
for her old meds.
In Memory of Mama
Dear "Memory:"
I loved your idea, so I ran it
by the California Veterinary


years old. My mother
then suggested that
we read it together. I
had written, "Dear
Tom, how are you? I
am just fine." My
mom asked me if I
thought that sounded
a little boring. She
said, "You haven't
said anything. You
used a few words, but
they have no mean-
ing." I never wrote
that phrase again,
although that is the
typical way a child
begins a letter.
Looking back, I

can see how, even at an early
age, my mother was teaching
me to write. In addition, I was
also fortunate to have a few
English teachers who were
determined to teach me the fun-
damentals of composition. I had
one in high school and another
in college who insisted that I
learn grammar and composi-
tion. They nearly beat me to
death, but I'm glad they did. I
earn a living today, at least in
part, with the skills they taught
me. I would especially like to
say "thanks" to Dr. Ed
Harwood. His classes were like
Marine boot camp, but what I
learned there was priceless.
It's not terribly difficult or


time-consuming to
encourage and teach
kids some of the
basics of grammar
�-,. g ' and composition.
One approach is to
, ask a family member
to correspond with
your child and
encourage him or her
US to write back. Then
*HE when the reply is
[HE written, sprinkle a
IIL few corrections, such
as the one my mother
times offered, with a gener-
son ous portion of praise.
- Finally, entice that
youngster to engage
in a little creative expression.
As for what you can do to com-
pensate for the de-emphasis on
writing in school, I really don't
know - except to seek instruc-
tion outside the classroom.
The teaching of writing has
gone out of style - much like
the old "homemaking" classes
for girls. But it is an incredibly
valuable craft that can be used
in a wide variety of settings.
Don't let your children grow up
without developing it.
Question: If punishment is
never indicated for an infant,
what form of discipline is
appropriate at that age?
Dr. Dobson: The answer is
loving leadership. Parents


should have the courage to do
what is right for their babies,
even if they protest vigorously.
Dr. Bill Slonecker, a pediatri-
cian and good friend, has
stressed the importance of par-
ents taking charge right from
the day of birth. Too often he
has seen mothers in his private
practice who were afraid of
their infants. They would call
his office and frantically huff,
"My 6-month-old baby is cry-
ing and seems very hot." The
doctor would ask if the child
had a fever, to which Mom
would reply: "I don't know. He
won't let me take his tempera-
ture." These mothers had
already yielded their authority
to their infants. Some never
regain it.
Good parenting and loving
leadership go hand in hand.
And it should begin on day one.

ARTS & LEISURE


* This is the third of a three-part -'.
,series on edible landscaping.
You may want a garden that is
entirely edible, where every plant is
both attractive and productive, or a
garden that combines food plants and I
standard ornamentals. Many "edible
landscapes" are better described as
party-edible landscape; they have plen-
ty of food plants, some inedible flow- GRO
ers to provide extra color, and inedible
woody perennials to help give the gar- SEJ
den strong year-round structure. Broad
leaf evergreen shrubs, for example, are High
inedible, and some are even poisonous, County
but they are important if a garden is to Garp
look good in winter. --
Here are some suggested edible landscape
plants and their uses:
* Amaranthus is a bold, vigorous plants with
large, ovate leaves that may be green, red-brown,
scarlet or variegated. Eat tender, young leaves for
greens.
- 0 Artichoke is a globe planted in rows as a.
summer hedge or garden space di ider Planms are
striking in front of a dark wall or evergreen
hedge.
* Asparagus is a perennial vegetable that
makes a light, beautiful hedge or airy backdrop
for a border.
* Basil looks and smells good massed in beds
and borders. It also is suitable as edging or con-
tainer plants. "Dark opal" contrasts well with yel-
lows.
* Beans, pole trellis beans alongside patios for
privacy and shade, grown along fences, or, for a
jungle effect, grow vertically with cucumbers,
wax gourds, morning glories, and other vines.
* Burnet is a useful groundcover for partially
shaded areas. It also thrives on land that is sunny
and hard to water. Grow in a bed, or as an edging
plant. Leaves taste like cucumbers.
* Cabbage looks good in bed or formal rows
and makes a great companion for chrysanthe-
mums.
* Carrots can be planted in a feathery mass or
grow as an edging.

. Cilantro is best grown in closely
planted beds near foreground of a bor-
der.
* Corn is good back drop for a
mixed border. Nearby plants should be
tall, at least three feet.'
* Cucumbers can be grown in bush
varieties in containers or on trellises.
Good camouflage for chain link fences
and stumps.
* Dill can be planted thickly to elim-
inate need for staking. Flowers look
sickly next to intensely yellow flowers
or bright green foliage
* Endive and escarole makes a good,
neat edging plant and looks good in
beds, especially near other plants with


bright green leaves and yellow flowers.
* Eggplant looks best massed in groups.
* Kale can be planted as an edging and in
masses. Also good in containers. Looks nice with
greens. .... .
* Nasturtiums grow in raised planters.or, on
terraces. Eat flowers.in salads, buds can le pick-
led and used as capers.
* Okra is an effective background plant used.
alone or with other big plants, such as corn, hol-
lyhock or rose.
* Parsley is good in borders, edging, masses,
planters and window boxes.
* Strawberries, especially alpine strawberries,
can be used as a groundcover.
Edibles can easily be incorporated into your
current landscape by inter-planting with orna-
mentals. Your yard will acquire a uniquely beau-
tiful flair and offer you a healthy return on your
labors well spent.

Library sets sail in October


'I must go down to the sea again, to
the lonely sea and the sky, and all I ask
is a tall ship and a star to steer her by."
- John Masefield
There are many beautiful poems
about bodies of water and our strong
attraction to them (why else do people
continue to live on barrier islands in
hurricane zones?) The Sebring
Library's October displays are cour-
tesy of the Military Sea Services
Museum and our banner for our verti-
cal book cover display is a quote from
E.E. Cummings, "...it's always our-
selves we find in the sea." from his


LIBRARY

Carol
Hesse


poem Maggie and Milly and Molly and
May.
Whether it's messing about with a small fish-
ing boat, restoring a "woody," or having the
opportunity to ship out on one of our nation's
huge carriers, the attraction of bodies of water
remains a constant. Some of the interesting read-
ing you can take home includes "Annapolis: the
United States Naval Academy;" "Jane's Naval
History of World War II;" "Fighting Sail;"
"Modern Warships; City at Sea;" "Tom Clancy's
Submarine: Inside a Nuclear Warship;" "United
States PT-Boats of World War II;" "On the Water:
The Romance and Lore of America's Small
Boats;" "Chapman Quick Reference Captain's
Guide;" "Ditchburn Boats;" "Wood & Glory;"
"Powerboat Care and Repair;" "Practical Sail
Care & Repair, and Nautical Knots Illustrated."
I don't know how he knew, but Wordsworth's
description of a fleet of ships kind of gives you
the shivers - "With ships the sea was sprinkled
far and nigh." It sounds like the magnificent
scenes from the 26 part documentary series
shown on NBC-TV in 1952 - "Victory at Sea."
The television series was actual footage by Allied
and enemy combat photographers featuring the
high points of the United States naval operations
on land and sea from September 1939 to
September 1945. Your Heartland Library
Cooperative libraries own many parts of this
series. Some of the series theme music, which
was written by Richard Rogers, can be enjoyed

An inspirational thought

.'I Corinthians 10:13 says,
Awl M "There hath no temptation
. taken you but such as is
COcinion to main: but God is
_, Gfaithful, who will not suffer you
S1 to be tempted above that year_
able; but will vith the'
temptation also make a way to
B 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. We are not
going to be tempted above which we are able. \\'e
go through different tests in order for the Lord to
mmake us the person lie wants us to be. In our test 'we
iulst iw'ait on the Lord. When lie brings us out. we
know i\'e have the victory. At times during our
testing, we want to rush to the finish. but the Lord
is still working on us. Rushing our way out could
only make the test longer. \\'hen Ithie flesh is
tempted, iwe must stand on God's Word. Let's
remember what thlie I\\'or4 says to us. our escaped is
already vmiade, so go through ,your test, and see the
victory that waits for y tjt the end. From my heart
to yours. Be Encourage:'' -

Scorpio to be in a lively mood this week


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- Conceit can get you into
trouble, Aries, but you seem to
ignore all warnings this week.
A co-worker gets defensive as a
result. Money matters seem
bleak - reconcile bank
accounts.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- A great opportunity arises on
Tuesday, but you may be too
busy to see it coming. It's best if
you take the day off to make the
most of this one-time deal.
Libra is key.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- You haven't been feeling
your best, Gemini, and this
week probably will be no better.
Relax, lay low for a while and
try to recuperate. A special
friend drops by for a visit.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- It seems you've gotten your-


self into another work bind. You
just can't seem to find a place to
work that interests you, Cancer.
Keep looking; don't settle for
just anything. Aquarius helps
out
Leo (July 24 - HOROS
Aug. 23) - Have
you been feeling Metro
lonely, Leo? It might Sen
be time to invite --
over some friends to
help beat the pre-winter blues.
Thursday seems a good day for
a late dinner. Romance could
follow!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- Too many road trips have put
wear on your car, Virgo. You
just made the investment, so
take it easy for a while. Tuesday
is a good day for.relaxation -
something you need.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)




- You've decided to jump in
and finally get that pesky task
done that's been haunting you.
Good for.you! Wednesday is an
uneventful day, so sleep in and
enjoy it.
;OPES Scorpio (Oct. 24 -
Nov. 22) - A better
Views mood keeps you live-
ce ly this week, Scorpio.
- When you're on a roll
no one can match
your work effort, so make sure
the boss sees all of your hard
work.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - It seems you've been
pondering starting a new busi-
ness. Remember, being self-
employed has its benefits but
also several downfalls - con-
sider them carefully. Capricorn
is the one to watch out for this
week.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - A trip to the doctor has
you mending some of your wild
ways, Capricorn. Now is not the
time for fun and games, but
concentration on setting a
course for your future. Expect
Friday to be very exciting.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- No plans for your birthday,
Aquarius? Why not think cre-
atively and coordinate a hiking
trip with friends. The country-
side looks beautiful snow-cov-
ered. Virgo will help.

Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- Have you been waiting for
some good luck to come your
way, Pisces? Well, this week it
just may arrive in the form of an
overdue check. Spend the
money wisely, but have fun.

Customers gather at Java Junction


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Bill and
Allison Dailey bring a taste of
West Coast coffee shops to
Highlands County.
Bill Dailey grew up in
Sebring. He and his wife,
Allison, met in California, and
married two years ago.
"L.A. (Los Angeles) had lots
of coffee shops. We used to
meet there, hang out, use the
Internet, and drink coffee. We
always joked we should open
one. Our family support system
is here. And Sebring is a good


place to be. It's friendly,"
Allison Dailey said. "L.A was
too fast paced and very expen-
sive. We lived in a 600-square-
foot place which cost $1,000 a
month. We could barely afford
it on my teacher's salary. Bill's
degree is in computer science.
and I got mine in math. We both
worked at restaurants and in the
food service industry, so we
know how it works."
At their new venture, Java
Junction,- there are seven tables
with chairs, plus four cushy
chairs to relax in. They offer
wireless Internet connections,


so people can bring their lap-
tops. There also are outlets in
order to charge batteries.
Since coffee is their special-
ty, it comes in 12-ounce, 16-
ounce and 20-ounce sizes.
There's cappuccino, latte, cafe
mocha, white mocha,
Americano, espresso, and extra
expresso shots. Hot tea, spiced
chai, and decaf chai also are
available. Flavors can be added
to any drink, hot or cold: hazel-
nut, white or dark chocolate,
caramel, amaretto, almond,
macadamia, cinnamon, vanilla,
Irish cream, raspberry, mango,


carmel, banana, Caribbean rum,
strawberry, Granny Smith
apple, mandarin, coconut or
watermelon. And some of these
flavors are sugar free.
For those who prefer cold
drinks, there are blended ice
coffees, fruit blasts, and fruit
smoothies, which are the most
popular. Flavors are mango
guava, wildberry, pineapple
coconut, pomegranate blueber-
ry, peach pizzazz, strawberry,
lemon cooler and passion
orange.
Java Junction offers soup


every day: tomato and three
cheese, rustic beef and mush-
room, sweet peppers and beef.
On Wednesday, there's broc-
coli and cheese. Ham, chicken
and tuna salad croissants are a
tasty addition. For dessert
there's cookies, brownies,
bagels and pastries.
"We have a Mini Cooper
with our logo on it and hope to
make deliveries in the future.
On Friday and Saturday nights
we have live music. Ben Ogden
is a local guitarist who's per-
k g . . ,-�- . , "


formed. We had about 40 cus-
tomers for that and we're inter-
ested in getting more talent,"
Allison Daily said.
Java Junction is at 108 North
Circle Park Drive (on the
Circle). Call 382-3535 with any
large orders in order to lessen
your waiting time. Hours are
from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday

Live entertainment is available
Friday and Saturday nights.

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


FEMA failed to heed warnings about Katrina


By HOPE YEN
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Federal
Emergency Management
Agency officials did not
respond to repeated warnings
about deteriorating conditions
in New Orleans and the dire
need for help as Hurricane
Katrina struck, the first FEMA
official to arrive conceded
Thursday.
Marty Bahamonde, a FEMA
regional director, told a Senate
panel investigating the govern-
ment's response to the disaster
that he gave regular updates to
people in contact with then-
FEMA Director Michael Brown
as early as Aug. 28, one day
before Katrina made landfall.
. In most cases, he was met
with silence. In an Aug. 29
phone call to Brown informing
him that the first levee had


broke, Bahamonde said he
received a polite thank you
from Brown, who said he
would check with the White
House.
"I think there was a systemat-
ic failure at all levels of govern-
ment to understand the magni-
tude - of the situation,"
Bahamonde said.
The testimony before the
Senate Homeland Security
Committee contradicted
Brown, who has said he wasn't
fully aware of the dire condi-
tions until days later and that
local officials were most
responsible for the sluggish
response.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-
Maine), who chairs the panel,
decried the testimony and e-
mail released by Bahamonde on
Thursday as illustrating "a com-
plete disconnect between senior


officials and the reality of the
situation."
"His urgent reports did not
appear to prompt an urgent
response," Collins said.
In e-mails to various FEMA
officials, including one to
Brown, Bahamonde described a
chaotic situation at the
Superdome, where many of the
evacuees were sheltered.
Bahamonde e-mailed FEMA
officials and noted also that
local officials were asking for
toilet paper, a sign that supplies
were lacking at the shelter.
"Issues developing at the
Superdome. The medical staff
at the dome says they will run
out of oxygen in about two
hours and are looking for alter-
native oxygen," Bahamonde
wrote in an e-mail to regional
director David Passey in a call
at 4:46 p.m. CDT on Aug. 28.


Less than an hour later,
Bahamonde wrote: "Everyone
is soaked. This is going to get
ugly real fast."
Bahamonde said he was
stunned that FEMA officials
responded by continuing to
send truckloads of evacuees to
the Superdome for two more
days even. though they knew
supplies were in short supply.
"I thought it amazing," he
said. "I believed at the time and
still do today, that I was con-
firming the worst-case scenario
that everyone had always talked
about regarding New Orleans."
Later, on Aug. 31,
Bahamonde' . frantically e-
mailed Brown to tell him that
thousands are evacuees were
gathering in the streets with no
food or water and that "esti-
mates are many will die within
hours."


By KIMBERLY HEFLING
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Army
National Guard units are short
of equipment at home partly
because they have been told to
leave such vital items as
armored Humvees in Iraq for
replacement troops, congres-
sional investigators say.
As of June, Army National
Guard units had left overseas
more than 64,000 pieces of
equipment worth more than
$1.2 billion, and the Army can-
not account for more than half,
said the report Thursday by the
Government Accountability
Office, the investigative arm of
Congress.
On average, National Guard
units at home have only 34 per-
cent of their essential war-fight-
ing equipment, which could
leave them vulnerable in a
domestic emergency, said the
report released at a hearing of
the House Committee on
Government Reform.
Officials believe the National
Guard's response to Hurricane
Katrina "was more complicated
because significant quantities
of critical equipment such as
satellite communications equip-
ment, radios, trucks, helicopters
and night vision goggles were
deployed to Iraq," -the report
said.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed
Rendell, whose state has 3,200
National Guard troops in Iraq
- the highest per capital in the
nation - said Pennsylvania
troops have had to leave behind
a variety of equipment, ranging
from seven helicopters in
Afghanistan to 59 tractors and
118 trailers in Iraq.
Replacement of the equip-
ment has been slow, and items
sent in their place are not the
same quality or quantity,
Rendell said.
This is a "huge problem
when it comes to the integrity
of the National Guards and
their ability to carry out their
missions," he said.


Idaho Gov. Dirk Keinpthorne
said his state's Guard will soon
leave 400 vehicles, in Iraq -
many of them Humvees upar-
mored to provide protection
against insurgents, and he
understands why. But he said he
worries the state will not be
protected in a disaster or terror-
ist attack.
"We need a commitment
from the federal government
that the equipment that is left in
Iraq will be replaced in quick
order," said Kempthorne, a
Republican.
Lt. Gen. David Melcher,
deputy chief of staff of the
Army, agreed with the report's
findings. He said $21 billion
will be.spent from 2006 to 2011
to 'equip and modernize the
Army National Guard, which
will help resolve much of the
equipment problem.
The report said that in addi-
tion to what was left overseas,
more than 101,000 pieces of
equipment from units on the
home front have been trans-
ferred to deploying units.
"Quite simply, we are rob-
bing the non-deployed Peter to
pay the deployed Paul," said
committee Chairman Thomas
Davis (R-Va.).
The GAO said the Guard is
working on an old business
model in which it only
deployed in the later stages of a
major conflict, if needed. As a
result, Guard troops on average
are only provided 65 percent to
74 percent of the people and 65
percent to 79 percent of the
equipment needed to conduct
their wartime duties, the report
said.
The report noted that the
Army is taking steps to imple-
ment stricter accountability
over Guard equipment left
overseas and a better method to
replace equipment left behind.

The U.S. Army helicopters that have been diverted
from combat duty in Afghanistan and other trouble spots
to carry out mercy missions in earthquake-devastated
northern Pakistan are still on the front line in the battle
against global terrorism. By showing the might of the
U.S. military harnessed to a humanitarian endeavor they
can influence the way people in the Islamic world view
America ...
The humanitarian help being provided to Pakistan has
enormous strategic implications. The Washington Post
quoted a senior U.S. official as saying, "(President)
Musharraf is a friend and hero in our eyes. There is a
clear and unmistakable signal being sent that we help our
friends." The official went on to say that the Bush admin-
istration is not acting to "curry favor with hostile Muslim
populations," but added, "If there is a positive impact for
the United States, so much the better." ...
The al-Qaida network and its Islamist associates can-
not be defeated by military means alone. With its relief
efforts, the U.S. military is winning the battle for the
hearts and minds of Islam. For example, polls show that
the U.S. military operation that brought fast relief to
Indonesia after the tsunami resulted in support for Osama
bin Laden dropping from 58 to 23 percent.

An editorial excerpt from The Post and Courier,
Charleston, S.C.
*
Political bloggers have made the Internet their own
personal soapbox. They can react 2417 to anything or
anyone on myriad Web sites across the political spec-
trum. They freely rant and rave to like-minded or dia-
metrically opposed bloggers the world over.
The Federal Election Commission has been ordered by
a federal court to draw up regulations that would extend
the nation's campaign finance laws to political activities
on the Internet. But the court didn't tell the FEC how to
do it. The commission hIas apparently resolved a number
of Internet matters but is still considering whether long-
standing freedom of press exemptions to its rules should
apply to online publications and, by extension, bloggers.

It's safe to say most bloggers would not describe them-
selves as traditional or mainstream journalists offering
unbiased and fair views, but that's not the point of
exempting their speech from government regulation.
They argue convincingly that FEC regulations on the
Internet, even ones limited to advertising, would have a
chilling effect on free speech.
The FEC should be more concerned about protecting
bloggers from government oversight than scrutinizing
their ideological communiques for the appearance of cor-
ruption. Fortunately wiser heads on the six-member
commission are expected to prevail on this debate ..

An editorial excerpt from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

When President Bush says of White House counsel
Harriet Miers, "I know her heart," those words may not
be of much guidance to most Americans trying to assess
her fitness to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court.
But Bush has long had a way of speaking in code to
what appears to be the main target of this and many other
public comments that seem insufficient or even mystify-
ing to others. Bush has mastered the art of effectively
signaling to religious conservatives, his bedrock base of
supporters, "Trust me. I'm one of you." ...
It was not surprising' at all that Bush might think he
could reassure skeptics on the right by simply saying he
knew what was in Miers' heart, a phrase that had the ring
of code. This time, however, many are demanding to
know much more about her views on Roe v. Wade and
other constitutional issues. So should all Americans.

An editorial excerpt from the San Francisco Chronicle.

In a nation as politically unstable as Iraq, small steps
toward democratic self-rule are cause for celebration.
Iraqi authorities, backed by a heavy U.S. military pres-
ence, provided enough security on Saturday to prevent
insurgents from disrupting the second election in the
post-Saddam Hussein era ...
Sunnis question the legitimacy of Saturday's vote.
Their leaders said that election workers stuffed the yes
boxes to enhance the chances that the charter would pass
in Sunni-majority areas. The Electoral Commission said
it cannot determine yet if fraud occurred, but the dispute
is likely to delay the announcement of the final results....
The Bush administration mistakenly thought this
process would be a lof easier. Even if President Bush had
sent in enough U.S. troops to stem lawlessness in the
chaos that ensued after Saddam was overthrown 2 1/2
years ago, the development of a free and democratic Iraq
would have been a major challenge.
Democracy requires that rival ethnic, religious and
tribal groups come together in peace to craft leadership
teams and a set of laws reflecting majority rule while
respecting the political and cultural aspirations of
minorities. That's a tall order in a nation with no history
of democracy.
If the federalist model of government leaves the geo-
graphically central Sunnis without a share of the nation's
oil wealth, Iraq never will escape the factional divide that
plagues the country now ...
Even if the draft constitution is enacted, Iraqi democ-
racy faces many more tests in the next decade. The


United States likely will have a military presence in Iraq
for some time. That's the consequence of a needless, ill-
planned intervention.

Getting prepared for a storm that is days away


.. Well here I am
writing about L URA'
Hurricane Wilma.
After all, it is on Laura
everyone's mind at
the moment, includ-
ing mine as we wait for it to
come and run through the
preparations required to ride
one of these things out.
By the time you read these
words, the storm will hopefully
have come and gone and you
won't be needing candlelight to,
see this. It's hard to tell as I type
this on Wednesday night and
Thursday morning. For all we
know, this thing could turn in a
completely different direction.
But let me say now that I hope
and pray this doesn't make a
mess here or anywhere else for
that matter.
But I admit that I an having a
problem getting my mind
around this upcoming storm.
It's October, and the past couple
of days have actitally not been
drenched in humidity and heat.
Hurricanes shouldn't be run-


I

!

*m


ning around when fall
LOOK weather is finally
showing up.
Ware Besides, we don't
have our hurricane
shutters yet. Let me
explain that. After the fun and
games with three hurricanes last
year, Don decided we should
invest in hurricane shutters. So
we ordered them. Months ago.
We even ordered them in blue
to match our windows. I'd tell
you what they look like, but
they haven't arrived yet.
Maybe we'll see them before
next year's hurricane season.
But if I learned anything last
year, I know that you don't take,
hurricanes for granted. So I
joined others lining up at a gas
station waiting to fill up my
tank. Then I went on to Winn
Dixie to get a few things.
I didn't buy a lot. Water was
already flying off the shelves
and I didn't think about grab-
bing it. I got some canned stuff,
some food bars, aid a bag of
dog food for Perky (the dog has


to eat during the hurricane too).
Then I joined a bunch of people
in line to checkout. I had bought
just enough stuff to be over the
10 items or less restriction, so I
didn't get into that line.
Later, a checkout person told
me I could have slipped into the
10 items or less line and no one
would have yelled at me. I sup-
pose that is true, but I worry
about what would happen if
they relaxed the standard, "just
this once." Today they let peo-
ple with 11 items into the 10
items or less line, tomorrow
they have to let the person with
15 items in, day after 'that the
person with 20 items ... a slip-
pery slope is a scary thing.
Anyway, the line to the
checkout stretched, and the
store realized there were more
of us trying to pay them than
they thought. They opened a
couple more checkout lines. A
woman with a very full.cart saw
my light load and insisted I go
before her in line. Thank you,


kind woman. God smiles on
such acts.
So this morning while I type
this I'm listening to the Barry
Foster Show and chatting with
fellow listeners online. (If you
have a computer you should go
online to Barry Foster's live
chat room during his show. If I
can make him crack up on the
air because of something I've
typed, I consider it a successful
day. Go to www.barryfoster-
sworld.com.
So while I wait to find out if
the schools will be closed
tomorrow (James is praying for
that) I will finish up this little
column and get on to other
things. Take care, be safe, and if
I haven't been blown into the
ocean I'll be back next week to
write about something else.

Always take time to remember our soldiers


Not too long ago, I
met a man who, after
noticing the veteran's
cap I was wearing,
stopped to talk to me.
He had been through
World War II, the
same as me, and was
glad that some of us
are still around.
We conversed for
awhile mainly about
some of the things we
had been through and
the memories
brought back. He had
been a member of the


T- .

Corps and told of some things I
never knew.
Before he left, he pointed to a
pick-up truck and trailer at the
far end of Wal-Mart's parking
lot and told me that he and his
wife were moving back up
north to be close to their chil-
dren.


We shook hands as
his wife hollered for
him to "come on."
Then he left, but not
before telling me that
he would be with
some of his buddies
come November as
* they would visit the
grave of The
iS Unknown Soldier in
>OK Washington, D.C., on
100K Armistice Day.
As he walked
VGACCI away, I thought about
Armistice Day and
got to thinking that some call it
Remembrance Day as well as it
should- be. On that .day, we
would recall the many who left
their homes, their wives and
families to get involved in the
conflicts, the struggles and the
battles of World War II, Korea,
Vietnam and the Persian Gulf to
name a few.


Yes, we will remember those
veterans and more importantly,
their sacrifices in order to do
something for their country.
Veterans themselves will pause
to remember, as I will. But I
will not have to wait until
November to bring it all back to
mind. I can do it right now, just
like it was yesterday.
Most of the time I try not to
relive the battles, the bad days
and nights. I try to experience,
again in my memory, the best
time. When it was all over.
When we were coming home. I
do that occasionally - just
reminiscing ... thinking about
some of the nicest people I met
after coming back to the States.
Sometimes my thoughts are
about two such people that I
met briefly. I was still in uni-
form, waiting to get out on the
point system. I had a pass from
Fort Dix and was on the high-


way - just outside of Trenton,
where I extended my thumb for
a ride to New York.
I had been standing there for
about an hour I guess, until an
elderly couple picked me up in-
a blue 1940 Chevrolet. Clean as
a whistle, it was! Just like it had
just came out of the factory.
They saw me there and
passed me up, I thought, until I
heard the horn blow. They were
parked about a half a block
away and on the shoulder of the
road. The lady was standing
outside of the car, waving for
me to come on. I grabbed my
bag and ran.
The man asked me where I
was headed. "To Brooklyn," I
answered. "Thanks for the lift."
"We can take you to
Brooklyn, to where we -turn
off," he said. "Then we're

going to Richmond Hill. in
Queens, where we reside."
I thanked them again. "I
appreciate the ride. Anywhere
that won't take you out of your
way will be just fine." Then I
added. "I have relatives in
Richmond Hill' My uncle has a
barber shop on Lefforts
Avenue. They were familiar
with it.
Then I told them where 1
lived in Brooklyn. There wasn't
much conversation after that. so
I just watched the scenery as it
passed by.
Then the man asked. "How
long were you standing there
when we showed up?"
"About an hour." I answered.
"1 hitched a ride a few times
several weeks ago and got one
each time in five or 10 min-
utes."
He looked at me through the
rear view mirror. "There's a
reason for that," he nodded seri-
ously. "The war being over and
so is the excitement and furor of
it all and they want to forget
what these past few years has
been all about."
The lady studied him as he
pulled to the side of the road.
"Are you alright?" I asked.
"I'm fine." He was reaching
toward his eyes and under his
glasses with a handkerchief.
"Things got a little blurry for a
moment, that's all."
"You see son," he continued.
"They signed the peace treaty
on that ship over there yester-
day and the war is over now."
Then he added, "People are
normal. They have a tendency.
to forget ... real quick!"
Then he started the car up
again and as we, -proceeded
down the highway, the lady
turned in her seat. "I see by
your ribbons that you were


overseas. Were you over there
\ery long".'"
"Not too long. Not quite a
year."
Then she appeared to he
studying the ribbons I w\as
wearing. "What's that little
thing, you're wearing on that
Purple Heart?".'
Looking down. I pointed to a
cluster. "Oih. that's so I don't
wear two ribbons of the same
kind."
She looked at me with her
mouth open. "You were wound-
ed twice?"
"Yes ma'am." I answered.
"'but I'm all right now."
"Our boy also received a
Purple Heart. He was about
your age when he joined the
Marine Corps after the attack
on Pearl." The lady continued
with difficulty. "He was killed
in the Philippines when he
returned with MacArthur."
"Imin terribly sorry." I said.
"Do you have any other chil-
dren?"
"No, he was our only child,"
The conversation continued
with questions she asked about
my family background and my
schooling.
They were both retired
school teachers and they had
relatives in New Jersey where
they traveled for an occasional
visit.. They were returning from
one of those visits when they
spotted me on the highway.
I may have dozed off for
awhile. The next thing I knew
we were going through the
Holland tunnel. then over the
bridge and into Brooklyn.
I noticed that the route he
toqk would steer him away
from their home in Richmond
Hill and I called to his attention.
"Anywhere around here will be
fine," I said. "You're going out
of your way."
The lady herself replied,
"We're taking you home. It's
not that much out of our way."


Before I knew it. we were
riding ldo\ n my street. "Over
there. I said pointing. "The
house \\ith brick steps."
' he nan pulled the car over
to the Curlb il Iront otl in house.
I got out and shut tleC door. "01f
all the rides I received." I said,
"and all the people I met ... I
appreciated this lide and yolu
lolks thile most. Thank you."
I noticed that both of them
were looking very solemn and
bleary-eyed.
'"Would you let me kiss you
on \our cheek?" She asked.
"'Sure." replied and leaned
inlto he window opening. There
weie tears in heil eyes when she
kissed me. Then I straightened
up and we said our goodbyes.
As they pulled away from the
curb, I watched them slowly
drive down the street and turn
the corner.
I know not their names,
though I see Iheir faces vividly
and think of them often.
Especially on Remembrance
Day.

It wasn't racism; it was a thugfest


Lou Ratajski is 86
years old. Last
Saturday Lou lost
everything he had
when mobs looted
and burned his little
neighborhood tavern
in the LaGrange
neighborhood of
Toledo, Ohio. The
media blamed it on a MAKINI
race riot. It wasn't -
it was a thugfest, an MICHAEI
orgy of gang vio-
lence and thievery.
Lou owned Jim and Lou's
Sportsmans Club, the building
that was broken into, looted and
then set on fire by hordes of
gang members and other crimi-
nals as millions of shocked
viewers across the nation
watched on their television
screens.
Suhkdev Singh Khalsa owns
the convenience store at an
American Petroleum gas station
in Toledo. Out-of-control mobs
wrecked and looted his store,
causing about $170,000 in dam-
ages and losses.
Thomas Frisch, 76, told
reporters that a large group of
men destroyed the exterior of a
gas station next to his home of
30 years.
"A whole big gang started to
come in here," he told CNN.
"Next thing you know, they're
jumping on the car. Then they
overturned it. Then they started
on the building, breaking win-
dows, tripping the bars off."
Despite what the media are
claiming, none of what hap-
pened had anything to do with
racism and everything to do
with criminality.
This incident, which grew
out of a planned march by 14
neo-Nazi members of the
absurd National Socialist
Movement of Roanoke, Va.,


L!


played right into the
hands of a liberal
> national media intent
on exacerbating the
I whole race issue
whenever an opportu-
nity to do so arises.
Given a permit to
stage a march through
the mixed-race neigh-
SENSE borhood, the tiny
band of neo-Nazis
REAGAN was confronted by
- some 300 local pro-
testers and 70 outsiders repre-
senting everything from anti-
war activism to anarchy.
Among them was also a contin-
gent of skinheads.
When the protesters began
throwing bottles and rocks at
the neo-Nazis, Police Chief
Mike Navarre instructed the
neo-Nazis to return to their cars
and leave Toledo. That should
have ended the near-riot, but it
didn't. The mob. then turned on
the police, hurling rocks and
bottles at them.
Mayor Jack Ford, Toledo's
first African-American mayor,
took a bullhorn and confronted
the mob, which included a man
standing a few feet 'away and
menacingly wearing a black ski
mask with a revolver stuck in
his waistband. He tried to calm
the mob, which continued to
pelt him and the police.
Ford blamed the rioting on
gangs that took advantage of a
volatile situation. "It's exactly
what they wanted,"' Ford told
reporters, adding that they were
mostly "gang members who
had real or imagined grievances
and took it as an opportunity to
speak in their own way.
"I am disappointed that some
folks who clearly are not strong
citizens to begin with took this
opportunity to make this state-


ment." Foid said "I was cha-
grined that there were obvious
mothers and children in the
crowd with them. Sevcial inti-
mated that they had guns"
That ' putting it mildly.
These weie not simply weak
citizens, they weie the dicgs of
society doing what they do best,
pl)IIing upon innocenClt nmem-
bers of both the black and ,white
communillities.
When the neo-Nazis left
without marching, why did
some blacks pillage their own
part of town? If it was a matter
of race hatred, why didn't they
invade a totally white neighbor-
hood to vent their so-called
anger?
What you had were the dregs
of both sides looking for an
excuse to do bad things, neo-
Nazis on one side, gang-
bangers on the other. One side
wanted to create a racial back-
lash, and the other side wanted
to loot their own neighborhood.
The media portray the inci-
dent as a race issue when it was
simply a matter of bad people
doing bad things. There are bad
people who are white and there
are bad people who are black.
Not every bad thing involving
the races that happens is an
issue of race. hI the case of
Toledo, it'was a case of out-of-
control thuggery -- the scum
rising to the top.

FDA: Antibacterial soaps no better than regular soap, water


By JOHN J. LUMPKIN
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON -
Antibacterial soaps and washes
aren't any better than plain, old
soap and water for fighting ill-
ness in the household, says a
panel of federal health advisers.
They warned manufacturers
they willB have to prove their
products' benefits or they may
be restricted from marketing
them.
Dr. Alastair Wood, chairman
of the panel which met
Thursday to advise the Food
and Drug Administration, said
he saw no reason to purchase
antibacterial products, given
they generally cost more than
soap.
The advisers also worried the
potential risks of the products,
particularly the common hand
soaps and body washes that use
synthetic chemicals, create an
environmental hazard and could
contribute to the growth of bac-
teria that are resistant to antibi-
otics.
"I think we're seeing a lot of
sentiment against (antibacteri-
als) being marketed to the con-
sumer" unless they can show
some added benefit over regular
soap and water, said Dr. Mary
E. Tinetti, a member of the
panel.
Industry representatives con-
tend their products are safe and
more effective than convention-
al soaps, because they kill
germs instead of just washing
them off. They said consumers
should have a right to choose
their products in a free market.
Their products have grown
significantly in popularity in the
last decade, as consumers
decided killing germs was bet-
ter than simply washing them
down the drain.
But the FDA said controlled
studies found no significant dif-
ference in infections in house-
holds using antibacterial prod-
ucts and those with regular soap
and water.
On Thursday, the agency's
Nonprescription Drugs
Advisory Panel, composed of
independent experts, recom-
mended no specific regulatory
action. a' in the manufactur-

Rates on

30-year

mortgages

climb again
By MARTIN CRUTSINGER
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON - Rates on
30-year mortgages rose this
week to the highest level in 15
months while one-year
adjustable rate mortgages
climbed to the highest level in
4 1/2 years. Analysts expect ris-
ing mortgage rates to cool the
booming housing market in
coming months.
The mortgage company
Freddie Mac reported Thursday
'that the nationwide average for
30-year, fixed-rate mortgages
rose this week to 6.10 percent,
the highest level since 30-year
mortgages were at 6.21 percent
in late July 2004.
Last week the 30-year mort-
gage had risen to 6.03 percent,
marking the first time it had
been above 6 percent since the
last two weeks in March.
Rates on all other types of
mortgages were up as well this
week, reflecting growing nerv-
ousness in financial markets
about inflation pressures trig-
gered by the sharp rise in ener-
gy prices after the Gulf Coast
hurricanes shut down produc-
tion.
The nation's housing market
has been booming this year
with sales of both new and
existing homes expected to set
records for the fifth consecu-
tive year. However, economists
are forecasting that the sales
pace will slow next year under
the impact of higher mortgage
rates.
"Higher mortgage rates will
inevitably lead to slower hous-


ing activity," said Nariman
Behravesh, chief economist at
Global Insight, a private fore-
casting firm in Lexington,
Mass. "We are looking for a
slowdown in housing - no
collapse, no awful scenario."
Most analysts believe that
the slowdown in sales will
moderate the large run-up in
home prices. But economists
cautioned that it is difficult to
forecast.


ers, but called on FDA to study
the products' risks versus their
benefits.
The agency has the authority
to order warning labels on the
products or place restrictions on
how they are marketed to the
public. Susan Johnson, associ-
ate director of nonprescription
products for the FDA, said the
agency would pay close atten-
tion to the panel's concerns.
FDA officials and panelists
raised concerns about whether
the antibacterials contribute to
the growth of drug-resistant


bacteria, and said the agency
has not found any medical stud-
ies that definitively linked spe-
cific antibacterial products to
reduced infection rates.
Dr. Stuart B. Levy, president
of the Alliance for Prudent Use
of Antibiotics, said laboratory
studies have suggested the
soaps sometimes leave behind
bacteria that have a better abili-
ty to flush threatening sub-
stances - from antibacterial
soap chemicals to antibiotics -
from their system.

tion in action," he said of the
process.
He advocated restricting anti-
bacterial products from con-
sumer use, leaving them solely
for hospitals and homes with
very sick people.
"Bacteria are not going to be
destroyed," he said. "They've
seen dinosaurs come and go.
They will be happy to see us
come and go. Any attempt to
sterilize our home is fraught
with failure."
Levy said overuse of antibi-
otics is the main cause of bacte-


ria developing resistance to
them. He acknowledged that a
yearlong study showed that
homes using antibacterial soaps
did not show an increase in
resistant bacteria in significant
numbers, but he argued the
soaps will still contribute to
resistance over a longer period.
Industry representatives said
they would provide more infor-
mation to FDA about their
products safety and effective-
ness.
"The importance of control-
ling bacteria in the home is no


different than the professional
setting," said Elizabeth
Anderson, associate general
counsel for the Cosmetic,
Toiletry and Fragrance
Association. "We feel strongly
that consumers must continue
to have the choice to use these
products."
Panelists also distinguished
alcohol-based hand cleansers
from antibacterial soaps and
washes. The cleansers are par-
ticularly useful in situations in
which soap and water are not
available.

Five SFCC sophomores to play in



fall all-star showcase next weekend


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - What has been an up-'
and-down fall season for the South Florida
Community . College baseball team xvill
end with five sophomore Panthers playing
in an all-star showcase.
Left-handed pitcher Jordan Roberts,
shortstop Dwayne Bailey, infielder Trey
Cleveland, second baseman Barry Padgett
and catcher/third baseman Josh Wilkes
will -play in the all-star games at
Tigertown in Lakeland Saturday and
Sunday, SFCC head coach Rick Hitt said.
"Basically what happens is you nomi-
Snate all your sophomores and the remain-
ing coaches in the conference vote in who
they think are the top returning guys from
last year," Hitt said, adding that coaches
aren't allowed to vote for their own play-"
ers.
"All the coaches try to get equal repre-
sentation when it's possible. I think every
club has anywhere from four to six players
on the roster."
The games will be at 6 p.m. on Saturday
and 2 p.in. on Sunday.
The sophomore. players that weren't
selected to play in the games participate in
a showcase on Saturday morning where
they get to do defensive drills, taking bat-
ting practice and pitdh in the bullpen in
front of college and/ pro scouts, making
the weekend a lot like the Florida Athletic


Coaches Association's Baseball All-Star
Classic held at Firemen's Field every
spring featuring the state's top high school
seniors.
"Wins and lIsseUe. ic.ll mean \ er little
in this. It's a complete shovi cise of talent
for the community college system," Hitt
said. "Some of them that might not have
been seen or noticed get another opportu-
nity on that weekend to
IN put themselves in front of
a lot of people."''
It will be a nice way to
- wrap up a fall exhibition
season that has served
mainly to show the
Panthers how far they
'The fall has have to go if they want to

ing experi- spring.
ence. We still "The fall has been a
have miles to learning experience," Hitt
travel.' said. "We have replaced
RICK HITT an awful lot -of players
T_______ from last year's roster. We
like a bunch of our guys,
but we're trying to get them to figure out
college right now. That's really the num-
ber one priority; on the field, in the class-
room, off the field ... every single year,
you're back to square one. There is no
continuation. Even with your second-year
guys, you go back to square one in a lot of
respects. This year is no different."


Hitt said the Panthers have had some
good, solid performances throughout the
fall as well as some below-average per-
' fornnnces, and is glad there is a fiIll sea-
son to work out the kinks.
It's one of those ironing-out process-
es," he said. "This is what we consider our
spring training. This is when we find out
who can and who can't, who does and
who doesn't and who will and who
won't."
The Panthers are lacking experience,
Hitt said, something they hope to gain
with the fall games and the non-confer-,
ence schedule in the spring.
"We kept a smaller fall roster' this year
to try to get all of our inexperienced play-
* ers more experience.. Even our returning
players are inexperienced guys. We have a
couple of guys who have a lot of at-bats or
(pitching) innings under their belt, but the
majority of our returning players are inex-
perienced guys who have very little game
time.
"It's no different than any other year.
You got back to square one and try to
build chemistry and camaraderie and you
work them to death, you try to teach,
coach, kick them in the tail, pat them on
the back, all tlhe.things it takes to get them
ready.
"For the most part they've responded
well in some situations, but we still have.
miles to travel. We've got until Jan. 28 to
figure it out."

Area deer and wild hog
hunters are anticipating a good
season and are chomping at
the bit to get out into the
woods and wetlands in pursuit
of their elusive quarry.
Florida's white-tailed deer
are usually a little smaller than
those found in the northern
part of the country, but they
can vary in size with the aver-
age adult buck weighing in at
-120 pounds. Females will
average less than 100 pounds.
White-tailed deer are plenti-
ful all over the state from the
Keys to the Panhandle area.
Spike bucks are legal game
during the designated seasons
if they have one or more
spikes at least five inches long.
Some hunters don't like the
idea of shooting a spike buck.
A six- or eight-pointer makes
for a trophy and has much
more meat on its bones.
Removing some of the
spikes will not endanger a wild
deer herd's breeding. In moni-
tored herds, one buck has been

'Rocketman' Newman good at keeping his cool


By MIKE HARRIS
Associated Press
R yan Newman doesn't
like to show any emo-
tion.
He's an engineer, a
Purdue graduate with a bent for
cool, clear thinking and a thirst
for problem-solving. And he's a
low-key individual, a man
whose idea of a great vacation
is heading into the deep woods
for some fishing, sitting on the
porch of a cabin and enjoying
nature.
When people start talking to
the Nextel Cup star about going
to New York for NASCAR's
annual postseason awards cere-
mony, you can almost see him
shudder.
"New York is too busy and
loud for me," Newman said,
smiling. "It's not my favorite
place. But that's just me."
However, since Newman
made it into the 10-man Chase
for the championship, he knows
that means he will have to be in
New York and don a tuxedo to
make an appearance on stage
during the ceremony at the posh


Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, no mat-
ter where he finishes in the sea-
son standings.
"If I've got to be there any-
way, I think it would be great to
be at the head table," Newman
said, shrugging.
After the first half of the 10-
race Chase, Newman is fourth,
but it's practically a dead heat
with only 17 points separating
him from co-leaders Tony
Stewart and Jimmie Johnson,
with Greg.Biffle in between.
The schedule continues today
on the half-mile track at
Martinsville, where Newman
has finished no worse than fifth
in his last four starts and was
fourth in the spring race at the
Virginia track.
The 27-year-old Newman,
who grew up in South Bend,
Ind., apprenticed on short tracks
and, at one point, appeared
headed toward IndyCar facing.
But team owner Roger Penske,
who has discovered talented
drivers in the past - Rick
Mears and Rusty Wallace, for
example - decided Newman
belonged in stock cars.


It was a good decision.
The youngster, nicknamed
"Rocketman" for his propensity
to win poles, has topped quali-
fying an incredible 33 times in
147 tries. He also has 12 victo-
ries and has finished no worse
than sixth in the points since his
first full season in Cup in 2002.
' Newman made it easily into
the inaugural Chase last year,
but never really contended, fin-
ishing a quiet - and disap-
pointing - seventh.
The big quest been:
When is Newman, who s i-
ously has the talent, going to
make a serious run at the title?
Newman has been the per-
sonal project of Don Miller,
president of Penske Racing
South, who oversaw the driver's
move to stock car racing, run-
ning an "ABC" program of
ARCA, Busch and Cup to pre-
pare Newman for bigger things.
Miller said he's not surprised
that Newman hasn't been a con-
tender until now "because I see
so many things that have hap-
pened to us along the way. It's

Brooks: Buccaneers' success this season not a fluke


By FRED GOODALL
Associated Press
TAMPA - Derrick Brooks
resisted the temptation to argue
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are.
every bit as good as their
record.
Instead, the eight-time Pro,
Bowl linebacker shrugged off a
question about the team's
NFC-leading five victories
coming against opponents who
are a combined 9-17 by smil-
ing and offering a polite "uh
huh."
Brooks said the Bucs (5-1)
heard the same thing in 2002
until they shut down a red-hot
Michael Vick to improve to 10-


3 on the way to winning the
Super Bowl.
He didn't mind the talk then,
and certainly isn't bothered by
it now after finishing with los-
ing records and missing the
playoffs the past two years.
"Outside of Tampa, we're
still the fourth or fifth story.
And we like 'it that way,"
Brooks said.
Regardless of who they've
played, that's a winning formu-
la that figures to be tested with
quarterback Brian Griese out
for the year with torn knee lig-
aments and third-year pro
Chris Simms taking over the
offense.


Coach Jon Gruden, like
Brooks, scoffed at the notion
that Tampa Bay may have ben-
efited from more than its fair
share of breaks in equaling the
best start after six games in
franchise history.
The Bucs held on to win 17-
16 at Green Bay after an inad-
vertent whistle allowed them to
retain possession after the
Packers recovered what should
have been a fumble inside
Tampa Bay's 20.
A week later, they beat
Detroit 17-13 when the Lions
scored a touchdown in the
closing seconds, only to have
the play overturned by instant


replay.
The Bucs counter that
they've overcome penalties,.
turnovers and the loss of sever-
al key players to injury, includ-
ing Williams and Griese, who
left last week's victory over
Miami in the second quarter.
"I don't have any feelings
right now other than concern
for our quarterback, excite-
ment for the hard work we've
put forth and the realization of
how much work needs to be
done for us to win another
game," Gruden said.
"Whether we're fortunate or
unfortunate, that's just opin-
ions."

FEATURE OF THE WEEK: "TIGER WOODS PGA TOUR 06"


Fun on the


"Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06"
EA Sports; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone
****- Score: 4 out of 5
By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
he preeminent golf simulation is back for another round in
"Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06." Though it's starting to look like
a has-been, a few key tweaks to gameplay make for notice-
able improvement in spite of the un-tweaked visuals; it's more
challenging now, but in all the right ways.
On top of the cool swing control using the left analog stick, you
can now also target your ball with the right, which allows for more
exact control (or lack thereof) over back spin, top spin, slices and
fades.
Also, putting has become more of a science thanks to a color-
coded grid overlay - a staple of other golf titles - showing slopes
and their severity when you're on the green, along with an option-
al best-path guide called up with the tap of a button.
For the fantasy golfer, EA's added its patented "Gamebreaker"
gauge, which charges.up slowly judiciously, over the course of a
well-played game and eventually allows for one impossibly perfect


QUICKPICKS
"Heroes of the Pacific"
Ubisoft; Xbox; $49.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (13+) (strong lan-
guage, violence)
**** Score: 4 out of 5
For some odd reason, there's a sur-
prising shortage of aerial combat
games on Xbox, even though the sys-
tem, its controller and innate online
multiplayer capabilities are perfectly
suited to them.
Hence, it's not too hard for Ubisoft's
"Heroes of the Pacific" to stand out in
such a sparse crowd. Fortunately it's
also really good in its own right, offer-
ing historic dog-fighting circa WWII
(i.e. Wildcats, Corsairs, Warhawks, etc.;
Pearl Harbor, Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal,
etc.), but with mercifully loose atten-
tion to technical intricacies and
finicky physics.
That is to say, "Heroes" lets just


about anyone fly like an ace with very
little practice; it's not a flight simula-
tor'so much as a full-throttle, hugely
explosive shooting game where you
just happen to be airborne. It features
a series of superb single-player cam-
paigns, quick-fix "Instant Action," as
well as online play for remote oppo-
nenits aplenty
It might lack depth, but shallowness
goes h long way when it looks this
good, plays easy and blows up oftep.

drive, chip or putt. An inverse-Mulligan, as it were.
Then there's your traditional glut of playable pros and licensed
courses, the expected depth-of-career mode and assorted PGA-isms,
but "Tour 06" is also online-enabled so you can form actual two-,
three- or foursomes of remote, real people for skins games and
tournaments, stat-tracking and handicapping or just a graciously
brief pick-up game with just three holes. Thus, "Tiger Woods 06" is
worth picking up for its short-term fun factor as much as its sea-
son's worth of simulated golf


"Legend of Kay"
Capcom; PlayStation 2; $29.99 . . " ,
ESRB Rating: Everyone (10+) A.AT
(alcohol reference, cartoon violence)
***-A Score: 3.5 out of 5
A quest-based, martial-arts, platform-i -'
adventure, "Legend of Kay" is a short, but solid,
romp with lush and elaborate visuals that happen to
bog down in their own elaborations from time to time.
You play as Kay, a feline ninja with a triple-duty
skill set of claw, sword and hammer and some unique
attack moves for each, a wealth of combo attacks and
a cool teleporting skill that lets you jump from thug-
pounding to thug-pounding without all that boring
walking in between.
The story is both classic and fresh; an animal's take
on the ol' "find the path to enlightenment or you're
doomed" storyline that gives it all a compelling sense
of purpose beyond mere cat-kung-fu for the sake of
fu. Then, too quickly as mentioned, it's over. Then
again, it's priced lower than average, so it's still a
good deal.

NEWMAN
Continued from 1E
frustrating for me, not surpris-
ing, because I know that we're
better than the numbers at the
end.
"But these things happen in
racing and you just have to
accept them and go on, just get
better."
It-N-'. nun does win a title
this season, that won't surprise
Miller either.
"I think the first three years
of his.(Cup) career were noth-
ing short of meteoric," Miller
said. "He had never spent any
time at all in a stock car. It was
all open-wheel. So, when he
came here and did what he did,
I think it was phenomenal.
"This year, I think, shows
one thing that I think people
have really, really begun to
recognize, and that's that Ryan
has a personality. Not only is
he maturing as a race car driv-
er, but he's maturing as a per-
son. He has got one of the
brightest minds in this garage
and his wit is so dry and so
quick it goes right by many
people."
That newfound maturity
could play a big part in how
Newman handles the last five
races of 2005.
"Yeah, there's a lot of pres-
sure for the team and for
everyone, but it's not so differ-
ent from the pressure we all
face all year," Newman said.

STEWART JOHNSON

"As far as victories (eight),
2003 was a good year for us.
From a consistency standpoint,
it wasn't good. Last year, we
had really fast cars in the
Chase, led the most laps in the
Chase and finished seventh. .
That was not at all the results
we were looking for.
"There's nothing we can
apply from 2003 or 2004 other
than just knowing that we need
to be consistent," he added.


"We know we need to run up
front and we know we have to
perform well, but that's no dif-
ferent than any other race
throughout the season. It's just
kind of business as usual and
seeing where we end up."
So far, so good.
Newman won the Chase
opener at Loudon, N.H., fin-
ished fifth at Dover, fourth at
Talladega, slipped up with a
23rd at Kansas and got back on
track with a seventh last week-
end at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Kurt Busch won the Chase
opener a year ago and wound
up taking the championship by
putting up nine top-10 finishes
in the last 10 races. So
Newman knows if he and the
team can just keep it going,
they have a legitimate shot at
the championship.
What would it mean to
Newman to win the Cup title?
"It would be ... it would be
awesome," Newman said, los-
ing a little of his cool veneer as
he thought about the ultimate
goal.
Quickly reining in his emo-
tions, Newman added, "To me,
it's one of those things that, if I
stay focused as a driver and the
team stays focused, when the
checkered flag falls at
Homestead (after the finale),
then we'll figure it out and see
if it's time to celebrate.
"If not, well, we'll just go
after it again next year and see
what we can learn from what
happened this time around."


RULES
Continued from 1E
used including bows, muzzleloading guns,
crossbows and handguns. Rimfire cartridges are
illegal for taking deer.
The daily bag limit for deer is generous in
allowing two per day with a possession limit of
four. Taking more than two deer per day is pro-
hibited. The wild hog daily limit is one with a
possession limit of two.
There is an antlerless deer season for hunting
on private lands. In the south zone, the season
runs from Nov. 5-11. The central zone dates are
Nov. 19-25. Deer of either sex may be taken
(except spotted fawns) in those areas that are
open to antlerless season. Check your FWC
hunting handbook.
The daily bag limit is one antlered plus one
antlerless deer or two antlered deer. Regardless
of the season, sex or how many permits, taking
more than two deer per day is prohibited.


Shooting hours and legal firearms are the same
as those mentioned earlier.
All hunters should have the proper licenses
and should obtain a copy of the FWC hunting
handbook for 2005-2006. To do so can eliminate
any confusion about hunting dates, bag and pos-
session limits.
For those who like to shoot with muzzleload-
ers, the season runs through Oct. 23 in the south
zone. The central zone season for muzzleloaders
opens Oct. 29 and runs through Nov. 6. Bag and
possession limits for deer and wild hogs are the
same as the general gun season.
Wildlife management areas can and do have
different rules. Copies of Florida's hunting regu-
lations are available at the county tax collec-
tor's office and at MyFWC.com.
If you will be hunting on the Arbuckle
Wildlife Management Area, it would be a good
idea to pick up a copy of the new regulations.
