Steed


takes seat


at CFRPC

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - On Wednesday, members
of the Central Florida Regional Planning
Council chose Patricia Steed as the new
executive director.
She was chosen out of three finalists for
the position vacated by Doug Leonard,
former executive director, who retired at
the end of the summer after serving for 14
years.
The Central Florida Regional Planning
Council helps set direction to develop nat-
ural resources, economic strength, region-
al transportation systems, affordable hous-
ing, emergency preparedness, and any
other major issues the council deems nec-
essary. The council assists local govern-
ments and private entities in a five-county
area - Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee,
Okeechobee and Polk counties - which
has been deemed by Governor Jeb Bush as
an area of critical economic concern.
Decisions made by the council, assisted
by the director and staff, affect the growth
and economic health of the region.
According to her resume cover letter,
Steed said she has been acquainted with
the programs and staff of the regional
planning council for the last 20 years, and
worked closely with them on development
of regional impact reviews and coordina-
tion of local government comprehensive
plans.
Her first planning position was with the
East Alabama Regional Planning
Commission, working for four years with
55 local governments in 10 counties. After
that, she worked planning with Broward
County for a year, and then mo'ed to Polk
County where she was planning division
director and the transportation planning
organization director for a total five years.
She also has worked as planning divi-
sion manager with the city of Lakeland for
12 years.
In the private sector, she has worked as
project manager and senior planner for
five years with Post, Buckley, Schuh &
Jernigan Inc.
Most of her planning career has been in
Central Florida, so she believes she under-
stands the unique challenges facing the

Eagle's Nest residents




,want help' from- county


Wilma's surge

damaged road, docks
By PHIL ATTINGER
Ndws-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Residents at
Eagle's Ridge on the south end of
Lake Istokpoga are still feeling the
sting of Hurricane Wilma.
Just a couple of months or weeks
before Hurricane Wilma hit, many had
finished repairing home and dock
damage from Hurricane Jeanne,


High, water wind surge off Lake
Istokpoga caused a lot of damage this
year, local resident Ray Cash said.
Several boats, whether pontoon or sin-
gle V-hull boats, either surfed into
back yards from the lakeside canal or
washed off trailers in the driveways to
land in the front, yards along Abell
Road.
"Those aren't there by design,"'
Cash said, pointing at two boats
parked on their keels in a backyard.
Every house had dock debris and
vegetation in their yard as much as 20


feet from the shoreline, he said. Cash
completed $31,000 in repair work on
his own dock and, boathouse just two
months before the Srorm. Its debris is
now a neat stack of nearly new lumber
on the lawn.
Some had water across the road
opposite the lake at least two feet deep
and at least two houses had water on
the inside. One had one to two inches
deep of mud on the lanai.
The majority of the 25 homes on
that road are people age 65- or older,

New generations coming of age this Veterans Day


- ,







KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Am Vets Post 21 member James Neel, of Sebring, said he gets emotional every
time he hears the song, 'God Bless America.' It was played Friday afternoon
during a Veterans Day ceremony on the courthouse lawn in Sebring. See more
Veterans Day pictures on page 20A.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The task of carrying free-
dom's light is always passing to a new gen-
eration.
This year, at Friday's annual Veterans
Day remembrance ceremony at the
Highlands County Courthouse, members of
the old and new generations demonstrated
that Americans will' always fight for free-
dom.
Lt. Col. John Pechiney Jr., the new com-
mander of the Avon Park Air Force Range,
said he labored oVer what to say to a crowd
of World War II, korean War and Vietnam
War veterans. Being a veteran of the Gulf
War and the wai; on terrorism, he said he
didn't know if he rated to speak on Veterans
Day.
First, he thanked the people of Highlands
County, for their warm, kind, generous
reception to him.
Next, he recalled as a child, how his
father would take him to the cemetery to
help place American flags on the graves.
"It doesn't get the same significance as
other holidays like Christmas or the Fourth
of July," he said. "To us, now, I feel now I
have learned and have a better sense for
what Veterans Day is."
Sgt. Maj. (Ret.) U.S. Army Joseph
Dionne, Highlands County's veterans serv-
ices officer, called it "the day of celebration
to honor America's veterans for their patri-
otism, love of country, sacrifice and, will-
ingness to serve for the common good of all
people."
It gives an opportunity to say, "thank
you," and show appreciation to living vet-


erans for their service, he said.
Pechiney thinks about the sacrifice, ded-
ication, and resolve of men and women to
preserve their country, and reflects on what
they did and had to do.
Today, he said, American military per-
sonnel are engaged in a very unusual and
demanding conflict called the war on terror
that will take "intestinal fortitude," i.e.
"guts,"( from them and from every person
back home.
Ultimately, there will be victory, he said.
He believes Americans have the right
courage and determination to make the
world and the United States a better, safer
and friendlier place.
Later, Roger Perkins, chairman of the
Highlands County Veterans Council, noted
how three men followed a star in the east.
2,000 years ago, and the world was not the
same since then.
About 230 years ago, men followed
another star - 13 of them, that later grew
to 50 - and the world has not been the
same.
Perkins said Tom Brokaw wrote a book
about World War II veterans called, "The
Greatest Generation." Perkins felt appre-
hensive about that title for him and his
peers.
When they came home and saw young
people, they asked what the world was
coming to, but that generation grew up and
met the challenges of preserving freedom.
"Generation X" was cast in the same light
and also met the challenges, he said.
"All generations have done it," he said.

developers got a final site plan
approved by Avon Park's local
planning and zoning board
Tuesday night.
The next step. City Manager
C.B. Shirey said, is for them to
pull building permits and get
approval by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District for water, and by the
Florida Department of
Transportation and the
Highlands County Engineering
Department for traffic impacts.
The store plans-to have U.S.
27 access at Shop 16 Road just
south of Bill Jarrett Ford in
Avon Park.
When completed, the store
will hold 179,782 square feet
with a department store and
grocery, and include a tire and

lubrication shop as well as a
gasoline station on the 29.65-
acre parcel.
Shirey said there are no more
municipal hurdles to clear.
Since the site is inside the city
limits, county planners dqn't
review and approve the site.
However, County Engineer
Ramon Gavarrete will have to
know what types of traffic
improvements will be needed to
accommodate the store.
Gavarrete said Thursday that
he expects to have his first
meeting with the developer
next week. There have been
other meetings they were invit-
ed to, but they haven't met with
him yet.
Gavarrete expects the new
store will require some
improvements on U.S. 27, as
well as a traffic signal at Shop
16 Road.

Police NO
I- Highlands County report


Presley
charged with
failure to
register
properly as
sex offender
SEBRING - When
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies were asked Nov. 3,
to do an address check on
Eric Leroy Presley, 38, of
Sebring, they found he didn't
have a valid driver's license
or identification card.
He was
released from
the Highlands
County Jail


under Florida
PRESLEY law as a sexu
al offender to get one or the
other within 48 hours of
being jailed.
When .deputies looked into
his records, they found the
last entry in the statewide
database was Jun. 9, 2004,
and his license was expired
then. No other identification
cards were located.
By that time, he had been
released for 77 hours.
Deputies looked for Presley
at his home at 506 Martin
Luther King Jr. Blvd., but
didn't find him. A witness
said he was walking along
Lemon Street, which is where
deputies found him.
When asked why he didn't
have a driver's license, he
allegedly said he didn't have
any money. He was arrested
and taken to jail by Sebring
police. His bond was set at
$100,000.
Presley is a black male
standing 5 feet 7 inches tall
and weighing 135 pounds.
According to Florida


Department of Law
Enforcement records, he was
convicted of being principal
to a lewd assault or sexual
battery on a victim less than
16 years old.
His address, according to
FDLE records, was 338 S.
Orange St., Sebring.

reports said.


When asked, Jestes
allegedly said he struck the
youth because he'd had
enough and could no longer
control his temper. He said he
knew he should not have hit
the boy, but was so angry, he
didn't know what else to do.
The boy told the deputy it
was his fault for taking the
truck, and did not want Jestes
arrested.

fied him as the one who bat-
tered them. He was arrested

Picking up cold trails


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Detective Joe
Price has been asked to follow
up a. lead on an 18-year-old
case.
Thanks to a group of retired
law enforcement officers, he
may have a break in a mysteri-
ous death case from 1987.
Called the Cold Case Team,
they have volunteered time at
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office over the last eight to nine
months to examine cold cases.
"They go through the cold
cases, (and) kick things
around," Lt. John Chess, super-
visor of the Criminal
Investigations Unit, said. "They
give some ideas and a new set
of eyes."
When Sheriff Susan Benton
asked investigators if they
would mind citizen, volunteers
coming in to help, they said,
"Certainly not," Chess said.
They may have found a lead
this week that would close one
old case.
In January 1987, investiga-
tors found a body along Elliot
Road, off U.S. 98. Believed to
be there for at least two years,
the body had decomposed to the
point that only some bones, a
wallet with unreadable docu-


ments and a .25-caliber hand-
gun were left.
The gun had an empty cham-
ber and the rest were loaded,
but there were allegedly no
signs of gunshot wounds on the
man's remains.
The team consists of three
volunteers. Jim Hummell is a
retired master trooper from the
Indiana Highway Patrol from
1968-1991. Shirley O'Toole
retired as a 1st Sgt.. from the
Chesapeake, Va., Police
Department after working from
1977-2001. Robert
Kretzschmar, private business-
man, worked with the Miami-
Dade Police from 1961-1970,
when it was called Dade
County Public Safety.
On Monday, they brought in
a friend, Leonard Speckin, who
reportedly made an interesting
discovery.
After using the in-house
microscope, he was able to dis-
cern a name on what looked
like a Social Security card in
the old wallet.
Correct or not, Chess doesn't
know. He assigned the case to
Price who has started making
calls up north to try and confirm
the name. He still has to get a
solid identification on the man.

CD gift violates injunction


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A compact
disk sent to a girl at Avon Park
High School has landed a local
man in jail for aggravated stalk-
ing.
According to a complaint
affidavit, Armando -Martinez,
23, of Sebring, violated an
injunction for protection
against sexual violence when
he used a third party to send a
music CD to a 16-year-old girl.
He was under the injunction
until an evidentiary hearing
could be held Nov. 16. It was
originally issued Oct. 3, the
affidavit said, and was extended
by Circuit Judge James A.
Yancey Oct. 12.
At 9:30 p.m. Oct. 27,
Martinez meet with a third per-
,son, a 19-year-old Woman who
was friends with the victim, in
the parking lot of Outback
Steakhouse in Sebring.
According to the affidavit, he
asked her to give the teenage
girl a bag that contained several
items he bought for her. One of
them was a CD of music by
singer and songwriter Richard
Marx. Martinez allegedly
removed the CD from the bag
with a piece of tissue paper, and
asked the woman to have the
girl play the last song.
When she asked him why he
was using tissue paper to pick
the CD up, he allegedly said he
didn't want his fingerprints on
it. Also, according to the affi-
davit, he asked the woman to
only say the bag was from
another girl.
The woman took the bag and
left the area. The next day -
Oct. 28 - she gave the teenag-
er the bag as requested.
Afterward, Martinez allegedly
called the woman and asked
about the teenage girl's reac-
tion, including what she said,
what she was wearing and who


was around at the time.
As it turns out, at 2:40 p.m.
that day, the teen went to her
car at the high school under-
classmen parking lot and saw
Martinez driving through the
lot in a green 1995 Chevrolet
Camaro.
The injunction stated it is
illegal for Martinez to have any
contact with the teenage girl,
including having a third party
contact her or for him to contact
anyone associated with the
girl's employer or school to ask
about her or send messages to
her.
Martinez was charged Nov. 8
under a warrant for aggravated
stalking, and was held under a
$20,000 bond.


ment I don't know about, he's
not identified yet," Price said.
Still, the clue created a lot of
excitement for a cold case and
roughly 10 months of hard
work.
"I'm excited because it's an
18-year-old case," he said.
Chess said the'team is look-
ing at old homicide cases - not
the open ones, but ones that
have-hit roadblocks. They look
at old evidence and case
reports, and make phone calls.
They show up when they
can, sometimes twice a week,
sometimes not at all, or some-,
times three days in a row.
They don't do field work.
Chess has sworn officers for
that, but they've been really
helpful.
"I'd love to have any retired
lavw enforcement officer with
expertise to volunteer with us,"
he said.

Crystal Lal
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - Seven years
ago, when Joy Faulkner real-
ized her community - Crystal
Lake Club - did not sponsor
any Veteran's Day events, she
said, "We'll have one next year,
if I have to do it myself!"
And that's just what hap-
pened.
This is the sixth year
Faulkner has organized the
Veteran's Day Observance at
Crystal Lake Club. But she has-
n't had to do it by herself. Many
other residents who share her
sense of patriotism, her need to
remember America's heroes,
have joined her in this annual
event.
Why has she been so moti-
vated? "Because I am a very
proud American," she said.
"My dad taught me to be proud
of my country. It's a labor of
love."
The 2005 observance was
held Monday in the packed
clubhouse, followed by a spe-
cial dedication just outside the
clubhouse.
Within the clubhouse, tables
along the back and one side
wall displayed photos of many
of the residents from their days
in the service, along with other
military memorabilia. One
table, marked "We Will Never
Forget You," honored those res-
idents who had been in the serv-
ice and who have passed away.
In fact, Monday's program was
dedicated to three such men:
Jack Donovan, Rene Brasley
and Jim Locke.
And because of Locke and
several other residents who had
served in the Canadian military,
the Canadian flag was flown
along with the Stars and
Stripes.
At the outset of the program,
a color guard made up of resi-
dents Roy Ballard, John Scott,
Bruce Lydy and Jim Marazza

led scores of other veterans
from the rear of the clubhouse
to the front, where they took
turns stating their names and
their military outfits.
The program itself contained
patriotic and inspirational
music and a medley of armed
forces songs, tributes to those
who have died, a history of the
origin of Veterans Day, and sev-


eral poems honoring those in
,the service and promoting
peace and freedom.

'Most Wanted!' brings message of healing and hope


Play on adoption to
benefit abused and
neglected children

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Everyone
wants to be loved.
That reality is no more true
during the holidays, when local
playwright Krista Flores has
written a play about adoption.
"I was adopted," Flores said,
"given up at birth and placed at
seven weeks."
Ever since elementary
school, she's been haunted by a
reading assignment: "The Little
Match-Seller" (1846), by Hans
Christen Anderson.
An orphan girl, neglected
and freezing on the streets of
London, is forced to sell match-
sticks. She begins striking
matches to keep warm and has
visions of warm stoves, a ban-
quet, and a Christmas tree. Each
time a match goes out, its vision
fades.
She strikes another and


instantly sees her dead grand-
mother. She decides to strike all
her matches at once and calls to
her grandmother, who takes her
with her.
The next morning, passersby
find the little girl frozen to
death on the street, sitting up,
smiling and holding the bundle
of burnt matchsticks.
Flores had a loving home, but
said the story affected her, espe-
cially the tale of abuse and neg-
lect.
"Where we are now, 200
years later, we still have chil-
dren in the same boat," she said.
"They still need to be loved,
wanted and kept safe."
At the beginning of October,
she began working on her play,
"Most Wanted!" set just after
World War II. It focuses on
Lucinda Taylor (played by
Heather Howell), who falls in
love with a boy from the other
side of town (played by
Heather's husband Jason).
The. two plan to marry and
tell her family, but he was
called to service. During the
war, he is lost in action, pre-


sumed dead.
She closes herself off and
turns to drink to numb her pain.
Arrested on a drunk and disor-
derly conduct charge, she's sen-
tenced to community service in
the local orphanage.
While there, she comes to
care about the children, espe-
cially Kelly, played by Flores'
daughter Monica.
Crooked administrators lu.
the orphanage leave and steal
its funds, and the sisters con-
vince Taylor to take it over. The
climax of the story comes dur-
ing a Christmas Pageant Story,

written for the play by Susan
Foster of Sebring.
"(In) this community, if it's a
good cause, everyone comes
together," Flores said.
"Most Wanted!" performed
by the Children's Academy of
Theater, will be at the South
Florida Community. College
auditorium. The lobby will
include the Heartland for
Children adoption display, and
have all proceeds go to the
Children's Advocacy Center, to

dren.

SFCC DeSoto campus hosts Florida Native Plants workshop


ARCADIA - A Florida-
friendly yard can be beautiful
and, at the same time, conserve
water and protect the environ-
ment.
More than 100 people gath-
ered recently to learn how to
create such a lawn and garden
at the "Florida-friendly
Landscaping with Native
Plants: a Hands-on Workshop"
at the South - Florida
Community College DeSoto
campus in Arcadia.
The workshop was sponsored
by WGCU Public Media, in
partnership with Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary
Program and the Peace River
Basin Board of the Southwest
Florida Water Management'
District.
"The Water District is con-
cerned with water quality and
management," said Sylvia
Durell, senior communications
coordinator, Southwest Florida
Water Management District.
"One thousand new residents
are arriving in Florida each
day." She indicated that
Florida's tremendous popula-
tion growth impacts water man-
agement, and many new resi-
dents need to be educated about


water use and the environment.
"New residents who come to
Florida bring old ideas about
how a lawn should look," she
said. "They think it should look
like it does up north - like a car-
pet of grass."
DeSoto County itself will
change dramatically over the
next few years. "Craig Coffey,
the DeSoto County administra-
tor, told me that a conservative
projection is that DeSoto
County's population will more
than double, to 75,000, within
10 years," said Effie Keen,
director of SFCC DeSoto cam-
pus. "Five developers are
already constructing planned
communities within the coun-
ty."
A panel of native plant grow-
ers and experts discussed incor-
porating native Florida plants
into residential and commercial
landscapes. The panel included
John Sibley, host of WGCU's
program, "Florida Landscapes,"
and owner of All Native Garden
Center and Plant'Nursery, Fort
Myers; Charlie and Darlene
* Foster of Deluxe Trees and
Shrubs in Arcadia, Brooks and
Nancy Armstrong of Pine Lily
Nursery in Ona; and Lorna


John Sibley, host of WGCU's 'Florida Landscape,' advised partici-
pants of the Florida-friendly Landscaping with Native Plants
Workshop on how to choose plants for their residences and suggest-
ed which native Florida plants to use when re-landscaping parts of
the SFCC DeSoto campus.


.. ,. -- - .

Participants of the Florida-friendly Landscaping with Native Plants
Workshop at the SFCC DeSoto campus had an opportunity to pur-
chase native Florida plants. Brooks Armstrong, owner of Pine Lily
Nursery in Ona, helps Jean Evoy choose plants appropriate for her
garden.


IlZl


Ransom, park ranger at Parks
and Recreation in DeSoto
County.
"Plants native to Florida are
maintenance-free," said Sidley.
"We like to say that they're bul-
letproof. They tolerate high
winds, heavy rainfall, and dry
periods. Exotic plants don't
adapt to these conditions.
Native plants provide habitat
value for hummingbirds, butter-
flies, and other wildlife. They
also offer the diversity which is
lacking in the typical urban
landscape."
"Because Florida native
plants have adapted to poor soil
conditions - sandy soil without
clay - you don't have to use fer-
tilizers or pesticides," said
Brooks Armstrong. "I own a
nursery (of native plants), and I
don't use pesticides at all.
Native plants will grow bigger
if you use fertilizer, but they
weren't meant to grow big."
Members of the panel urged
participants to abide by nine
principles of Florida-friendly
landscaping:
* Right plant, right place.
Native plants and those adapted
to a specific region's conditions
usually require less water, fer-
tilizer, and pesticides.
* Water efficiently. Irrigate
only when lawn and landscape
need water. Efficient watering
maintains a healthy Florida
yard and conserves limited
resources.
* Fertilize appropriately.
Less is often best. Over-use of
fertilizers can be hazardous to
your yard and the water quality
of bays, rivers, lakes, and
streams.
* Mulch. Maintain a three-
inch layer of mulch to retain
soil moisture, suppress weeds,
prevent erosion, and moderate
soil temperatures.
* Attract wildlife. Plants that
provide food, water, and shelter
can sustain Florida's diverse
wildlife.
* Control yard pests respon-
sibly. Unwise use of pesticides
can harm people, pets, benefi-
cial organisms, and the environ-
ment.
* Recycle. Leave grass dTip-
pings, leaves, and yard trim-
mings in the yard to provide
nutrients to the soil and reduce
waste disposal. .
* Reduce stormwater runoff.
Water running off your yard can
carry pollutants, such as soil,
debris, fertilizer, .and pesticides,
that can adversely impact water
quality.
* Protect the waterfront.
Waterfront property, whether on
a river, stream, pond, bay, or
beach, is fragile and should be
protected to maintain freshwa-
ter and marine ecosystems.

Effie Keen, director of SFCC DeSoto campus, digs in and helps landscape the campus with native
Florida plants during the Florida-friendly Landscaping with Native Plants Workshop.


During the workshop, partic-
ipants grabbed shovels and
gave sections of the SFCC
DeSoto campus a landscaping
makeover. "SFCC lost some of
its palm trees and smaller plants
during the hurricanes last year,"
Keen said. "We were happy to
become a host site for the work-
shop, and people can now see
examples of natie plants when
they visit the college."
Many of the landscaped areas
were narrow sections along
SFCC's driveway and at the
northeast comer of the main
building. "Our first objective
was to beautify these areas,"
said Sibley. "These areas are
hard to grow things in. We
chose a diverse group of plants
and used as many species as we
could. We used Bahama Cassia,
which is a- host plant for butter-
flies, Florida Privet,
Fakahatchee grass, Dwarf
Fakahatchees grass, and a few
wildflowers. We planted Wild
Cotton, which forms a flower
that turns into a little, hard
acorn-shaped bulb that bursts
open, and you get cotton."
Another "Florida-friendly
Landscaping with Native Plants


Workshop" will be at the SFCC
Hardee campus in early 2006.
For further information about
Florida-friendly landscaping,
visit www.wgcu.org/fllandscape
or www.watermatters.org.
"The SFCC DeSoto campus
is scheduling a Community


Education course in landscape
design and a workshop on
Florida native edible flowers
and plants in February or
March," Keen said. The SFCC
DeSoto campus also is offering
a course for credit in "Soils and
Fertilizers" in spring term 2006.

Dan Dianand, director of the Highlands Regional Medical Center Cardiopulmonary Department,
demonstrates the proper use of an inhaler at the recent Better Breathers Forum hosted by HRMC.
Organizers expect the group to double in size when they meet again Wednesday.


HRMC to host COPD Support Group


SEBRING - Highlands
Regional Medical 'Center will
host a Better Breathers Forum
from 10-11 a.m. Wednesday in
the boardroom on the first floor.
The forum is open to the pub-
lic and refreshments will be
served compliments of Lincare.
The forum's presenter S.
Dianand, a registered respirato-
ry therapist and director of the
cardiopulmonary department at
HRMC, said the forum is
intended to give clinical educa-
tion and support to patient with
chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease and their families.
This months forum will con-
centrate on lung exercises,
diaphragm breathing, and meter
dose inhalers.


COPD is an umbrella term
used to describe lung disease
associated with airflow obstruc-
tion. Most generally, emphyse-
ma, chronic bronchitis and
chronic asthma either alone or
in combinations fall into this
category.
According to COPD-interna-
tional.com, It is estimated that
there are currently 16 million
people in the United States
diagnosed with COPD. It is also
estimated that an additional 14
million or more are still undiag-
ndsed, as they are in the begin-
ning stages and have few or
minimal symptoms and have
not sought health care yet. The
site predicted that close to 35
million cases could possibly be


found just in the United States
alone.
The good news is that while
the disease can be debilitating,
proper patient education and
treatment can significantly
improve a patient's well-being
and quality of life.
Factors that contribute to a
longer, healthier life include
early detection, following med-
ication regimen, healthy eating
habits, stopping smoking, edu-
cation about any and all aspects
of your disease and it's.related
problems,

Locals honored for service to veterans


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Three people
this year received awards for
outstanding service to veterans,
above and beyond the call of
duty.
First awarded was News-Sun
Executive. Editor Romona
Washington for her work in
writing about veterans them-
selves and veterans' issues.
This past summer, she wrote
a column on Clifton Guillory,
who passed away in August. It
was a reflection of how she and
he met, how her dad and he
became very close friends and


how he never stopped champi-
oning Vietnam War prisoners of
war and missing in action sol-
diers.
He had lost a brother and
seven cousins in the war.
Guillory and Washington had
many conversations on
Vietnam. They were friends as
much as associates.
The plight of imprisoned or,
missing soldiers is a subject
near and dear to Washington's
heart, too. She is still concerned
about thousands of men who
were never recovered. Each day
for 19 years, she has worn a
bracelet as a reminder of this


fact.
Denise Williams, assistant
veterans services officer
received the Service to Veterans
Award. A veteran herself of the
1991 Operation Desert Storm,
she has spent tireless hours
going above and beyond her
duties to help veterans, as
reported by Ken Beers, presi-
dent of the Air Force
Association and master of cere-
monies for the veterans ceremo-
ny.
This includes recent efforts
to help veterans maintain their
military benefits by maintaining
their records through discharge


papers or income verification.
"She's truly deserving of this
award," Beers said.
Finally, he presented the
newly created Lifetime Award
to the family of Dick Brown,
otherwise known locally as
"The Flag Man." He knew any-
thing about the American flag
that people wanted to know,
Beers said.
Several veterans organiza-
tions were invited to attend and
sent representatives. They
included American Legion Post
25, American Legion Post 69,
American Legion Post 74,
Bruce E. Simpson AmVets Post


SAGE
Continued from 1A
Although they meet the
world differently and took dif-
ferent solutions, Perkins said,
they met the challenges well,
and guaranteed this nation will
"always be 'the land of the free
and the home of the brave.' "
Veterans stood to sing along
with the national anthem and
"'God, Bless America," by invi-
tation from singer Becky
McIntyre. During the ceremo-
ny, since bugler John Zubler
could not attend to sound the
colors or play "Taps," bagpiper
Chris Ward joined fellow bag-
piper Mark Manley to play
"Amazing Grace."

PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Ray Cash, resident of Eagle's Nest community on Abell Road in Lake Placid stands near what remains of
his dock, walkway, and boat house after Hurricane Wilma's wind surge broke it apart. He completed
$31,000 in work on it to repair damage from Hurricane Jeanne just two months before Wilma hit.
Almost every one of the 25 residents received similar damage coupled with boats and debris the surge
washed into their yards from Lake Istokpoga being unusually high. He'd like to get answers on why the
lake had to be high during the storm, and if the county can assume maintenance of the road in case it
washes out again.


NEST,
Continued from 1A
Cash said. About 80 percent are
over 70. He said they had to pay
for help to get their yards
cleaned up.
Abll Road
Cash said the deepest cut of
all was that the high water near-
ly % %shed out Abell Road. Last
year, floodwaters from Jeanne
washed out about 200 feet of it.
That couldn't .be helped, he
said, but this year's damage
was preventable, he said. The
South Florida Water
Management District held the
lake artificially high to provide
water for irrigation in the win-
ter, and that made the wind
surge worse.


" 4 He new the county had
installed a drain structure in a
caladium field at the .corner of
County Road 621 and Abell
Road, with the intent of drain-
ing water into canals across the
county road. After the storm,
however, Cash alleges he found
work crews blocking the spill-
way with help from a "long-
arm" boom and a back hoe, to
protect caladium plants by the
canals.
About a week after the storm,
water began running out of the
flooded field into canals across
the road, but slowly, Cash said.
There was still some damage to
Abell Road. Residents had to
bring in shell rock to fix it.
"People are starting to get
real concerned," he said.,
"We've been eight years fight-


ing t- get 'the county-to main-
tain the road for us. We're up
the creek if it happens again."
He's called local officials to
see if the county will take over
maintenance of Abell Road, and
to see if they can make head-
way .with the South Florida
Water Management District
regarding the lake levels.
While the water district told
the News-Sun that the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers sets
the water release schedules,
representatives from the Corps
have allegedly told Cash the
water district sets those sched-
ules and levels.
"Instead of passing the buck,
,ywhy (doesn't) someone repre-
sent us down here," Cash said.

TUFFIN9 IT
WITH TUFFLEY

Scooping


poop

Some years ago, when I
lived in a Fort Lauderdale
neighborhood threatened by
roving dope dealers, my dog
protected me in more ways
than one.
She was a small, black terri-
er mix with a frisky sense of
fun whom I had rescued from
the pound.
Even though she was far
from ferocious, on our walks
her very presence was enough
to keep most strangers at bay.
Picking up after her, which I
did religiously as simple good
manners, provided me with
additional protection.
That's because there's
something about a dog's diges-
tive tract that turns harmless
kibble into a lethal chemical
weapon. I'd carry her waste in
a plastic bag, ready to swing it
at the first sign of trouble. I
felt very safe.
But it's one thing to pick up
after one dog, entirely another
to clean up after many.
And many is what faces the
workers at the Humane
Society of Highlands County.
In fact, the numbers are daunt-
ing. There are usually as many
as 170 animals on site.
Figure that each animal has
to evacuate at least two times a
day, and you begin to get an
idea of the challenge.
Which is probably why

Animal shelter worker


It's heart, not money, that matters


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - The Humane
Society of Highlands County is
funded entirely by local dona-
tions. It receives no taxpayer
dollars or financing from the
national Humane Society.
Despite working on a shoe-
string budget, which averages
only $120,000 a year, shelter
workers and volunteers manage
to place around 700 animals
annually, and shelter many
more than that.
The facility is a "no kill for
space" shelter.
"That means the only ani-
mals that are considered for
euthanasia are those that are
sick beyond our scope and
means of medical treatment, or
are aggressive and a threat to
our staff and the . public,"
Marvene McPhee said. She has
been president of the society for
the last two and a half years.
She hopes people will under-
stand there is only so much
room. There are times when a
family may have to wait to sur-
render a pet.
That's because the shelter is
40 years old, and hadn't
changed much in that time.
Now things are slowly get-
ting better thanks to donations
and volunteer labor.
"I am extremely proud of our
progress, which has been made
possible by our 'hands on'
board members, a dedicated
staff, and our active volunteers
and members," McPhee said.
Recently more storage, dog
kennels and a new cat room
were added, and the staff
expanded to four. The Sunrise
Rotary of Sebring is building a
new puppy kennel. An adoption
room has been created, so peo-
ple can interact with an animal


Needs a home

Meet Jessica, a 1-year-old
pit bull mix, who is friendly
and loving. Solne of the
dogs have been cooped up
for months, waiting for new
homes. Sadly, at times peo-
ple have broken into the
shelter and stolen dogs. It is
likely those dogs were used
to breed puppies indiscrimi-
nately. or as bait for train-
ing fighters.


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Carol Smith, who joined the paid staff last February, began as a volunteer. She's giving Ben, the mascot
rottweiler, a special treat. She has seven dogs at home, four of which she adopted from the shelter. "My
husband said one more dog iand you will have to quit your job," she said. It is not unusual for her to
arrive at work to find animals left at the gate.


they're thinking about adopt-
ing.
McPhee is hoping to fence in
a large play area, so dogs can be
let out of their kennels for a run
every day. She also hopes to
create a dog park for pet owners
in the county. The society has
land that could be used for that
purpose.
People who consider work-
ing at a shelter have to love ani-
mals instead of money, and they
can't be afraid of hard physical
labor. They also have to be
good with people, whether
answering questions, or han-
dling an adoption.'


The work is dirty, but
rewarding, especially when a
successful adoption is made.
Volunteers are always wel-
comed. They can help clean, or
answer phones, or spend time
with the animals to keep them
well socialized.
For example, the Key Club at
Lake Placid High School comes
once a month to give every dog
at the site. a bath.
McPhee says donations don't
have to be cash. For example,
right now there's a leaky roof,
sq.a donation of shingles-and tar
paper would help. Leftover sup-
plies are just fine, she. added.,


Instead of throwing odds and
ends away, bring them by the
shelter.
"We need the community,"
McPhee said. "Without their
support we couldn't exist. We
are so thankful for the many
people and groups that support
our shelter, and a special thank
you from our 'four legged
friends.",
The Humane Society of
Highlands County is open from
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday.
It is at 7321-Haywood Taylor
Boulevard. The telephone num-
ber is 655-1522.

Homeowners find one-stop-shopping


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Owner-broker
Guillermo Lopez has created a
one-stop-shop for homeowners
with three separate, licensed
companies under one roof.
There's Sailboat Realty,
Xpress Title & Escrow (a title
company) and Life Financial
Services Corp. (4 mortgage
company) operated by Elio
Vasquez, who can determine
home ownership eligibility and
assist people in obtaining the
loan.
"We cater to the Highlands
County population who are
presently renters but want to
own their own home. We all
have Cuban roots and can speak
Spanish. I've been here since
1970, and have a beautiful wife
and two kids," Lopez said.
There's also Realtor Mark
Pimental, and Vasquez, who in



POOP

and Cheryl Fuller were so glad
to see me, when I showed up
one recent Monday to lend a
hand at the shelter.
I was immediately put to
work cleaning the outside dog
kennels. That meant I took a
long handled scrapper and
scooper into each pen. The
waste got dumped into a plas-
tic bag lined bucket, then I
hosed down the walls and the
floor.
The waste had to be picked
up because there is so much of
it, it can't just be hosed out
into the gutter. The amounts
clog up the drains and over-
whelm the septic tank system.
It gives the phrase "piled high-
er and deeper" real meaning.
So into each kennel I went,
scrapping and scooping, while
holding my nose, because I
must admit the smells were
unpleasant.
Not that they bothered the
dogs. They were so thrilled to
have a walk-in guest, that each
went out of its way to wel-
come me with open paws. In
their frenzy for affection, they
leaped up on me and tried to
climb into my pockets.
As a dog lover I must admit
I found the attention flattering.
Until I noticed deep footprints
in some of the dog's leavings,
and realized how I was getting
so dirty. Shelter work is not
for the squeamish.
In fact, Smith and Fuller
told me about one individual
who was hired to work, and
lasted only a few minutes.
After she had cleaned one ken-
nel, she simply disappeared,
without telling anyone she was
leaving.
They understood her dis-
tress. While I was cleaning up
after only some of the dogs,
they had been attending to all
of the cats. That meant clean-
ing every cage and litter box, a
task that took them most of the
morning. And remember, this
isn't work that is done once a
week, but every other day.
On top of that, the work we
did that day was only routine
maintenance. In addition,
cages and kennels are deep
cleaned on a regular basis,
which includes disinfecting
them. It takes a special person,
Smith and Fuller said, to make
the cut and go the distance.
However, cleaning up the
kennels turned out to be the
easy part of the day.
Dogs have feelings. That's a
statement of fact.
It was pure torture to see
hope's sparkle die in their eyes
when I walked away.
How can a person say no,
when those soulful eyes plead
for salvation? I totally under-
stand how Smith has wound
up with seven dogs at home,
and Fuller has a dog and eight
cats.
Sadly, r had no choice. I
already have a greyhound-
S Belgian shepherd mix at home,
another rescued puppy - only
she's elderly and hopelessly
neurotic, unable to share my


affection. Even though she's
my good deed, I still felt like a
pile of you know what to have
left the shelter empty handed..

addition to Spanish, is fluent in
Russian, French and English.
As a member of both
Highlands County and the
Greater Miami and Beaches
Realty associations, Lopez feels
they will be able to offer more
exposure of listings for sale by
giving access to more counties
and a wider range of buyers.
"We feel the Hispanic com-
munity has not been targeted,


and because we are all bilin-
gual, we can offer better com-
munication. We always know
what's going on by having the
whole 'transaction go through
the various phases with these
different companies all inside
our one office area. This
enables us to get things done
quicker," Lopez said.
Lopez believes Highlands
County has developed rapidly

appreciation of real estate is
evident.
"It's a positive atmosphere
here. If you want to find out
anything about construction,
you go to the zoning depart-
ment. They are polite and
explain things and react quick-

accuracy, a good price, and cus-
tomer service. And they have
already received positive feed-
back.
"People have discovered that

Military Appreciation Mondiy offers thank you to nation's patriots


LAKE PLACID - This
nation's observance of Veterans
Day is a celebration to honor
America's military personnel
for their patriotism, valor and
willingness to serve and sacri-
fice for the common good.
Golden Corral corporations
fifth annual Military
Appreciation Monday provides
all U.S. Military with a thank
you from Golden Corral and the
Disabled American Veterans.
Acclaimed actor/director, Gary
Sinise, known for his role as
Lieutenant Dan Taylor in
"Forrest Gump" and star of the
television hit series: "CSI: New
York," is supporting Military


Appreciation Monday through a
public service announcement,
which encourages all veterans
and active duty military to par-
ticipate and be recognized for
their sacrifice and dedication to
protect this nation's freedom.
Sinise also led a national cam-
paign in 2004 to encourage citi-
zens to step forward and volun-
teer in meeting Disabled
American Veterans' needs.
On Monday evening follow-
ing Veterans Day, all 470
Golden Corral restaurants span-
ning 39 states will offer all vet-
erans and retired and active
duty members of the United
States military a free dinner
buffet. The offering is strictly


based on the honor system - no
identification is required and no
questions asked. There is a
Golden Corral at 322 U.S. 27
South, Lake Placid.
"We are fortunate to have
thousands of American soldiers,
marines, sailors and air corp
defending and protecting the
freedom of the United States,"
said Ted Fowler, president and
chief executive officer of
Golden Corral. "Military
Appreciation Mopday is
Golden Corral's way of show-
ing gratitude to all the men and
women who served and have
sacrificed their lives to protect
ours."
An integral part of Military


Appreciation Monday is the
DAV, a million-member organi-
zation that is the official voice
of America's service-connected
disabled veterans. The DAV,
which represents all America's
2.3 million disabled veterans,
their families and survivors,
will have members at the event


locations throughout the nation
to distribute literate, sign up
new members and volunteers
and accept donations in support
of the DAV.
"The Disabled American
Veterans is honored that Golden
Corral restaurants are partner-


ing with the DAV for 'Military
Appreciation Monday," said
Arthur H. Wilson, National
Adjutant for the Disabled
American Veterans. "We are so
grateful that Golden Corral is
committed to opening its doors
to veterans and Active duty mil-
itary."

Investigations of New Orleans levees mounting


By BRETT MARTEL
Associated Press Writer
NEW ORLEANS - A feder-
al prosecutor said Thursday his
staff is pursuing tips about cor-
ruption relating to the building
and maintenance of levees that
broke during Hurricane
Katrina.
Meanwhile, new evidence
has surfaced suggesting steel
reinforcements driven into parts
of the failed levee system did
not go to the depth the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
thought.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said
his office is- focused on the
political and business relation-
ships of those involved in build-
ing the levees, not whether the
levees were poorly designed or
improperly built.
"We're not in the business of
trying to second-guess if some-
thing could have been designed
and built better," Letten said.
"Our investigation is looking
into whether there was illegal
conduct, whether it be diversion
of funds ... that would have con-
tributed to poor execution of the
work."
Letten refused to give names
or discuss specifically what
officials were alleged to have
done. He said only that he had
received "information that there
were individuals in positions of
responsibility that had conflicts
of interest, and that's something


we're always interested in."
Letten's office is one of sev-
eral agencies looking into pos-
sible wrongdoing in regard to
levee building and mainte-
nance. Both state Attorney
General Charles Foti and
Orleans Parish District Attorney
Eddie Jordan have said they're


floodwaters through hundreds
of homes and into the center of
the city.
Young, now helping to
rebuild three damaged New
Orleans canals between the
Mississippi River and Lake
Pontchartrain, said design
drawings show that steel pilings

conducting their own investiga-
tions.
Letten declined to say
whether he's investigating fed-
eral or local officials. However,
local agencies handle most of
the building and maintenance of
levees.
The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers is officially responsi-
ble for design and construction,
but sometimes that means little
more than reviewing plans and
inspecting work.
Corps engineer Fred Young
said the Orleans Parish Levee
Board managed the 17th Street.
Canal levee that broke, sending


reinforcing the -levees should
have been driven to a depth of
17 feet below sea level.
That does not appear to have
been the case, based on prelim-
inary findings by an investiga-
tive team led by Louisiana State
University civil engineering
professor Ivor van Heerden.
Using sonar, his tests have
shown sheet pilings at the canal
went to only 10 feet below sea
level. Steve Spencer, chief engi-
neer for Orleans Parish levees,
said his agency did the plans
under Corps guidelines. He said
he could not explain without
further investigation the dis-


crepancy between the 17-foot
depth in the designs and the 10-
foot depth found by van
Heerden's team.
Independent teams of engi-
neers have said the levees were
weaker than advertised because
they were built on loose, porous
soil that is prone to having
water seep through, it and that
steel sheet pilings, even at 17
feet, were not driven deep
enough. To compensate, they
said builders should have used
stronger earthen material and
driven steel pilings far below
the 18.5-foot depth of the canal
bottom in an effort to prevent
water from seeping through to
the dry side of the levee and
undermining the floodwall.
Young declined to speculate
about the implications of van
Heerden's findings.
"To me, the design drawing
shows it should have been at
minus 17. I don't know what
(the LSU team) is doing and
how they're getting minus 10,"
Young said. "We're looking
into it."
No one has been able to look
at the sheet piling that was torn
out of the levee when it
breached. Van Heerden said he
asked to see it but was told it
was buried under dirt at the
construction site where the
levee is being repaired and
could not be dug up right away.


Officials try to learn where seven veterans' tombstones belong


Associated Press
ST. AUGUSTINE - Officials are trying
to unravel a mystery involving seven veter-
ans' tombstones which were discovered
two years ago being used as a walkway out-
side an abandoned mobile home.
. Joseph McDermott, the chief veterans
services officer in St. Johns County, is try-
ing to find anyone who might know where
the headstones came from. He would like to
return them to the graves of the men who
served their country.
"We just want to do the right thing for
our veterans," McDermott said recently.
Five of the granite stones are from World
War II veterans, one is for a serviceman
from.:. Korean War and one is ungletpr-
'nmin- All the men died in the 1980s(hd


1990s, and the earliest birthdate was 1878.
McDermott said attempts to locate the
families or anyone who knows about the
headstones have been unsuccessful. He has
contacted local funeral homes and veterans
officials in Washington.
After publicly disclosing the names the
media in St. Augustine and Jacksonville,
McDermott said he has had a few calls, but
no results.
A former Jacksonsville police officer
called him and suggested the stones may
have come from a now defunct Jacksonville
company that engraved headstones.
Tombstones with typos or incorrect infor-
mation were left i'ining outside, the officer
old him. - .
'The following .informnton appears on


the headstones:
Allen J. Brown, Army private, World
War II, 1922-1993
Steve Btewton (may be a typo), Army
private, World War II, 3-19-1917 - 4-14-
1984
Clarence Dixon, Army corporal, World
War II, 9-11-1912 - 2-11-1984
Thomas Edison Hadley Jr., Army rank
unknown, World War II, 10-7-1922 - 12-
30-1980
Isaac Samford Howell, private first class,
branch unknown, World War II, 1907-1994
J.C. Purifoy, Army corporal, Korea,
1930-1993
James Singletary, Army rank and war
,unknown, 1878-1981
S"I need to be sure we get them in the
.right place," McDermott said-.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


All-seeing

eyes
Before Ken and I married
and combined our families,
Chuck and Billy would
sometimes do a sleep over
with Chris so the three of
them could get to know one
another better.
At that time, however, the
nickname, Chuck, had not
become our oldest son's
moniker. Rather, with two
sons named Chris, we added
their middle names to distin-
guish them from each other
and called them Chris
Charles and Chris Paul.
The day after an
overnight visit, Chris
Charles was in the hallway
between my bedroom and
Chris, bedroom - shoving
his clothes into the suitcase
without much care.
Unbeknownst to me,
Chris Paul was in his room
shoving his clothes into the
bureau drawer, anxious to be
done and play with the boys
a little longer before they
went home.
From my room, I noticed
the haphazard way Chris
Charles was flinging his
things into his over-night
bag and commented, "Chris,
don't just throw your things
in there, fold them neatly,
please."
In a hushed, awe-filled
voice, I heard Chris Paul
say, "Wow, moms really do
have eyes behind their
heads." Only this time my
eyes would have had to
wind around'a corner.
It may seem moms have
extra eyes. The Lord has
gifted women with the abili-
ty to "see" beyond what's
right in front of them. Her
- "radar" senses what's going
on a room away or
outdoors.
But, even more extraordi-
nary, is the wonder of God's
all-seeing- eyes upon us. I
take comfort in knowing
God never sleeps, keeping
his watchful eyes upon me
when mine are closed in
slumber.
Yet, there is an even more
extraordinary insight into
God's watchfulness that I
became reacquainted with
recently.
"For the eyes of the Lord
range throughout the earth
to strengthen those whose
hearts are fully committed to
him." (2 Chronicles 16: 9 a,
NIV)
This verse follows the
story of King Asa who
"relied on the king of Aram
and not on the Lord your
God."
Consequently, the army of
the enemy escaped from his
hand. The king is reminded
how the Lord delivered him
in the past from other
mighty armies. And then the
above statement is made
reminding Asa that God's
eyes search for'those that
are committed to him so he
can strengthen them.
He doesn't say his, eyes
seek the weak and wavering
so he may strengthen them.
He looks for those who are
loyal and trustworthy. God
knows that even the fully
committed will have times
when they need an extra
measure of strength and
courage. He doesn't take our
commitment to him lightly.
Knowing the all-seeing
eyes of God seek the faithful
to fortify them again and
again should encourage us
to renewed commitment to
him. Selah.

Building Bridges


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent #
SEBRING
Pastor Eugene Haas of Christ
Fellowship Church has been
supporting International
Fellowship of Christians and
Jews for many years.
Haas and his wife, Marjorie, founded
Christ Fellowship Church 13 years ago.
Eventually, the congregation adopted
this mission program as one of their
own.
The heartbeat of International
Fellowship of Christians and Jews is to
bring Jews into their homeland from
around the world. Under the leadership
of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein's life work,
the International Fellowship has devot-
ed more than 20 years building bridges
of understanding between Christians
and Jews and broad support for the
state of Israel.
"Christ Fellowship has been involved
in bringing Jews from Russia to
Jerusalem for approximately six years,"
Haas said. "Within the last few months,
we've been assisting International ,
Fellowship in relocating Jews from the
tribe of Manasseh in India - where
there are 6,000 Jews - and flying them
into Jerusalem."
God says in the Bible that he will
gather his elect from all over the world.
More and more Jews are finding there
way back to their homeland and
International Fellowship is actively
involved.
Although Haas has worked closely
with Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, president
and founder of International Fellowship
of Christians and Jews, the two men
had never met. An interesting invitation
from Zion's Hope of Orlando changed
that.

Zion's Hope outreach
Stan Rosenthal of Zion's Hope -
known for the theme park, The Holy
Land Experience, and its magazine,
"Zion's Fire" - invited Haas and some
other pastors to travel to Israel to see
what Zion's Hope ministry is doing
there. Stan and Marvin Rosenthal, who
are brothers, were both present on the
trip.
Zion's Hope missionaries - native
Israelis as well as others who have
come from as far away as Russia and
Australia - reach out to fellow Jews in
various ways.
One of the missionaries is a son of
the only holocaust survivor in his fami-
ly. He has served in the Israeli Defense
Forces; was wounded in action and is a
decorated soldier. He works among
wounded soldiers and terrorist victims,
families - sharing the gospel, comfort-
ing them with his faith, friendship and
support.
Another missionary actively pastors
two Russian churches in Jerusalem and
in the Negev region in the South. More,
than 1 million Russian Jews have immi-
grated to Israel within 13 years.
Two Russian immigrants conduct
free evangelistic walking tours to
Christian Holy sites. They are seed-
sowers, sharing one-on-one, door-to-
door and with youth.
The field director in Israel for Zion's'


Pastor sees ministries





in Israel firsthand


Courtesy photos
Pastor Eugene Haas visited Chesday Yosef, a soup kitchen set up by International Fellowship to feed hundreds of elderly people
twice a day. Haas is seen here with a female worker, the Rabbi who runs the soup kitchen and a gentleman who is blessed by the
ministry.


Hope has served among Russian immi-
grants and is active in the leadership of
a Hebrew/English-speaking congrega-
tion. Other ministry outreaches include
evangelism, youth and-children's min-
istries; such as summer camps, and
helping the needy.
Besides becoming acquainted with
these Zion's Hope ministries, Haas and
the others attended meetings. At one of
them, a top Israeli official spoke.
Knowing that the Bible says that all
the land from the River Euphrates to
the River Nile belongs to the seed of
Abraham, Haas asked a pertinent ques-
tion.
"Why are you giving up land when
you are supposed to be possessing .
land?"
The Rosenthal brothers backed him
by declaring that Haas had asked a very
good question.
The Israeli official said that when
Messiah comes then everything will be
restored. With that, Haas said that-
Marvin Rosenthal responded, "And we
believe Yeshua is Messiah."

Another open door
While Haas has been to Israel 17
times, often leading tour groups of 14-
70 people, this was the first time he was
part of a group of pastors touring Israel
and especially Zion's Hope projects.


One of the elders from Christ
Fellowship, Gary Kaarlela, accompa-
nied Haas as well.
Meanwhile, God was at work open-
ing another door.
When Haas contacted Rabbi Yechiel
Eckstein to let him know he would be
in Israel, Eckstein immediately invited
Haas to see firsthand the work that he
and Christ Fellowship have been
involved in all these years. At last, two
men whose hearts and hands have been
united in ministry over several years
and thousands of miles would meet face
to face.
Eckstein is an Orthodox Jew.
However, well-known Christian pastors
such as Jack Hayford and Jerry Falwell
sit on the board of International
Fellowship along with celebrity, Pat
Boone, and others.

Ministry feeds body, soul
One of the projects Haas and
Kaarlela visited was Chesday Yosef, a
soup kitchen set up by International
Fellowship. Twice a day, warm meals
are fed to hundreds of elderly people. A
rabbi oversees the daily work. It is a
small, old soup kitchen with mostly all-
volunteer staff, but they do wonderful
work on a limited budget.
Another vital and long-standing proj-
ect they visited was Biet Ulpana and

met Rabbi Kalman. He adminitrates
this unique boarding school which he
established and has headed for the past
30 years.
"The new immigrant girls from the
former Soviet Union, ages 13-18, board
there. Kalman provides room, board
and a high quality education," Haas
said.
-Some of the girls are orphans, some
are from broken homes. The school
houses a mix of girls with varying his-
tories. But, one thing they have in com-
mon is their new home and the possibil-
ities it offers them.
"Those who graduate can go on to
higher institutions or occupational
courses. Some come back and become
teachers at Biet Ulpana," Haas said.
"They graduate speaking Russian,
Hebrew and English."
Interestingly, Kalman also is glad to
be a matchmaker. Those girls who wish
to be wed are introduced through
Kalman to suitable young men. He also
provides them with money for their
weddings.
International Fellowship first brings
immigrants into an absorption center
where they live for a while and are
taught Hebrew. In time, places are
found for them to live. Many basic and
necessary needs are met for the immi-
grants and their children through
International Fellowship.
"Coming from Russia, most only
speak Russian," Haas said, "and must
be taught Hebrew to function in their
homeland."
Since Jews have been dispersed all
over the world, when they come back to
Isfael, they are coming home. They
have a right to live there. As long as

Calculating your child's misbehavior


Question: Are children real-
ly that calculating about their
misbehavior? If so, I've not
understood them at all.
Dr. Dobson: Some are, some
aren't. We're talking here about
the child who is driven to be his
own boss-to take orders from
no one. That kid can be very
deliberate about his purposes.
I had a friend when I was a
child who best typified this cal-
culating spirit. Earl was like a
military general who had deci-
phered the enemy code, permit-
ting him to outmaneuver his
opponents at every turn. He
seemed to know every move his
parents were going to make. I
once spent the night with'" him,
and after we were tucked into
our own twin beds, he gave me
an astounding description of his
father's temper.
Earl said, "When my dad
gets very angry, he uses some
really bad words that will
amaze you." He gave me three
or four startling examples of
things his dad would say.
I replied, "I don't believe it!"
Mr. Walker was a very tall,
reserved man who seemed to
have it all together. I just could-
n't conceive of his saying the
words Earl had quoted.
"Want me to prove it to
you?" said Earl mischievously.
"All we have to do is keep on
laughing and talking instead of
going to sleep. My dad will


come and tell us to be
quiet over and over,
and he'll get madder
and madder every time
he has to settle us
down. Then you'll hear
his cuss words. Just
wait and see."
I was a bit dubious
about this plan, but I
did want to see the dig- I
unified Mr. Walker at his
profane best. So Earl
and I kept his poor i
father running back
and forth like a yo-yo Dr
for over an hour. And i
as predicted, he
became more intense
and angry each time he returned
to our bedroom. I was getting
very nervous and would have
called off the project, but Earl
had been through it all before.
He kept telling me, "It won't be
long now."
Finally, about midnight, it
happened. Mr. Walker ran out
of patience. He came thunder-
ing down the hall toward our
room, shaking the entire house
as his feet pounded the floor. He
burst through the bedroom door
and leaped on Earl's bed, flail-
ing at the boy who was safely
buried beneath three or four
layers of blankets. Then from
his lips came a stream of words
that had seldom reached my
tender ears. I was shocked, but
Earl was delighted.

Even while his
father was whack-
ing the covers with
his hand and

fanity, Earl shouted
to me from beneath
the blankets, "Did

THE der that Mr. Walker
MI|| didn't kill his son
that night!
James I lay awake in
bson the dark thinking
- about what had
happened and made
up my mind never to let a child
manipulate me like that when I
grew up. Don't you see how
important disciplinary tech-
niques are to a boy's respect for
parents? When a 45-pound bun-
dle of trouble can deliberately
reduce his powerful father to a
trembling, snarling mass of
frustrations, then something
changes in their relationship.
Something precious is lost. The
child develops an attitude of
contempt that is certain to erupt
during the stormy adolescent
years to come. I sincerely wish
every adult understood that
simple characteristic of human
nature.
Question: I understand your
emphasis on a child being
taught to respect the authority


of his or her parents but doesn't
that coin have two sides? Don't
parents have an equal responsi-
bility to show respect for their
children?
Dr. Dobson: They certainly
do! The self-concept of a child
is extremely fragile, and it must
be handled with great care. A
youngster should live in com-
plete safety at home, never
being belittled or embarrassed
deliberately, never punished iRn
front of friends, never ridiculed
in a way that is hurtful. His
strong feelings and requests,
even if foolish, should be con-
sidered and responded to polite-
ly. He should feel that his par-
ents "really do care about me."
My point is that respect is'the
critical ingredient in all human
relationships, and just as par-
ents should insist on receiving it
from their children, they are
obligated to model it in return.

Library reflects on fall season


Do you know what I enjoy the most .
about fall? It's the colors - the rich
purples, the intense oranges, the royal
blues, and the golds - the gem-like
saturated colors of, well ... gems. This
month is your opportunity to enjoy the
richness of fall's gem colors right in
our display cases at Sebring Library.
Highlands Gem & Mineral Club mem-
bers have strewn the glass shelves with
their own interpretation of the reflec- LIBRARY
tions of fall colors, and it's here for -
your enjoyment this entire month. Car
Jewelry, it's making and wearing, is Hess
as old as humankind. Library shelves
reflect our interest in the many varia-
tions of jewelry. Angela Fisher explores our fas-
cination with what we look like in "Africa
Adorned," check out "The Art of Native
American Turquoise Jewelry;" or browse
'Kremlin Gold: 1000 Years of Russian Gems and
Jewels."
Two women whose bodies have been decorat-
ed with the world's most expensive jewelry (and
some of the largest settings) are Queen Elizabeth
II and Elizabeth Taylor. Both women have very
large collections, Queen Elizabeth's being main-
ly inherited along with her position. Both women
have also been given some extravagant jewelry.
If you enjoy looking at the finest of the metal and
gem worker's art, then you will want to spend
some time pouring over these titles: "The Jewels
of Queen Elizabeth II: Her Personal Collection,"
and, "Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair With
Jewelry."
Other facets of this subject are: "Answers to
Questions About Old Jewelry, 1840 to 1950;
"Pearl Buying Guide; "Art Nouveau Jewelry and
Metalwork;" "Jewelry-& Gems at Auction;
"Antique Jewelry: A Practical & Passionate
Guide;" "The Diamond Handbook;" "Antique
Trader Jewelry Price Guide;" "Jeweled Bugs and
Butterflies;" "Cloisonn6, the Art of Cloisonn6
Enameling and Jewelry Making;" "Design and
Creation of Jewelry;" and "Art Deco Fashion and
Jewelry."

Now if you think that our fascination
", \ with gems stops at the jeweler's gem
S case, then you haven't been introduced
to Gerald Browne who features the
pearl industry and trade in Asia as his
oyster in 18mm Blues. Author
Elizabeth Lowell has also studied the
gem industry and has come up with
.1A two excellent fiction stories; "The
Color of Death," showcasing the gem
LINES cutting industry and the jewelry trade,
-- and "Midnight in Ruby Bayou," a
lyn southern tale of jewelry making with
link rubies, an 18 caret mystery.
- Somehow Europe seems to be the
place for the best jewels and author
Judith Gould sets her story of jewelry design and
auctions in a most glamorous place and calls it
"The Parisian Affair." Prolific author Danielle
Steel has often been photographed for her books
in glamorous settings wearing beautiful jewelry,
so it's really no surprise that she also placed one
of her novels in France and called it Jewels.
Where there's gems, there are thieves, so enjoy
the heist in Nora Roberts' "Hot Ice; L. L.
Chaikin's Tomorrow's Treasure;" David
Schickler's "Sweet and Vicious;" and don't for-
get Gerald Browne's "West 47th."
Easy-to-make jewelry projects for kids include
"Bead Work;" "Beads 'n' Badges;" "Dangles and
Bangles;" "Great Gifts to Make;" and "50 Nifty
Super Friendship Crafts."
Alain Vaes has adapted his humorous version
of the Hans Christian Andersen story, "The
Princess and the Pea." It seems the prince is
ready for marriage, but the Queen is more con-
cerned with her jewelry collection. November
14-20 is Children's Book Week, so bring in the,
kids/grandkids and check out the stories.

Cooperating


It may surprise you to know that your yard is
the first line of defense for Florida's fragile envi-
ronment. The health of Florida's estuaries,
rivers, lakes and aquifers depends in part on how
you landscape and maintain your ..
yard. And you don't even have to live .V
on the water to make a difference.
Storm-water runoff is the reason.
Rain falls on yards, roads and parking
lots, and then washes into tributaries
and the lagoon, carrying pollutants
like fertilizers, pesticides, soil and
petroleum products. Scientists have '
discovered that fertilizers and pesti-
cides from residential areas are seri- GRO
ous threats to the health of Florida's SEA
Waters. When runoff contains nitro-
gen from fertilizers, algae can -
become so abundant that oxygen is High
depleted and fish kills may result. In County
some freshwater environments phos- ard
phorus is often the nutrient responsi-
ble for algae blooms. Toxic substances, such as
common landscape and household pesticides,
can damage reproduction in marine life.
But all is not gloom and doom. A new ethic is
emerging among concerned Florida homeown-
ers who seek to redefine the image of home and
landscape. The idea is to cooperate with local,
natural conditions, rather than to battle the ele-
ments.
More people are conserving water and energy,
inside and outside the home. Interest is growing
in landscaping with native and other beneficial
trees, shrubs and ground covers. Homeowners
are choosing plants that blend beauty and envi-

Virgo: People are not out to gel you


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- You'll be a little reckless, but
your self-confidence is such that
you're sure to come out on top
even when the odds are against
you. Anything is possible.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Pinnacle of self-control that
you are, Taurus, things might be a
bit more difficult this week, espe-
cially at home where everything
everyone. says or does seems
annoying.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- Travel and social activities
will be good for you; visit new
places and make new friends. If
you don't have anything planned,
what are you waiting for?
Cancer (June 22 - July 23) -
Things are looking feisty in your
chart, this week, Cancer. A true
Cardinal sign, you'll fight tooth
and nail for all of your posses-
sions and everything else you
believe in.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
You'll go your own way and do
your own thing, without doubting

for moment that you'll succeed.
ut it won't all be easy sailing,
you'll encounter a few obstacles
on the way.
. Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) -
It's possible, of course, that cer-
tain people do have it in for you,
and are conspiring behind your
back, but more likely it's just
your imagination playing tricks
on you again.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) -
You have strong opinions about
what's going on, Libra, and may
find yourself arguing with people
whose opinions are very different
from your own. Keep an open
mind.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) -
Now's the time to get serious
about your career plans, Scorpio.
It will be a cinch for you to win
over those you'll need on your
journey to the top. You're in the


home stretch.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - The world is your oyster
this week. Go anywhere, do any-
thing - no matter how outra-
geous your behavior, you'll get
away with it. You'll find that
Aries makes a great companion
for the journey.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20)
- You'll be in an aggressive
mood this week, and good thing
too. If you don't fight for what is
rightfully yours this week, you'll
lose it for good. Save the week-
end for much-needed unwinding.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
- A feud with co-workers this
week is inevitable, so don't worry
about it. Every once in a while,
it's a good idea to remind others
that you can bite as well as bark.

Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- Better hope you've had plenty
of sleep, because this is going to
be a busy week. You'll be on the
go from first thing in the morning
until the wee hours.

Agricultural Research Service reports farming preserves waterways


The Agricultural Research
Service is the research branch
of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. In the past, its
work has brought us products
such as Deet (used to repel
mosquitoes) and Superslurper,
the magic stuff inside of diapers
that can soak up many times its
own weight in water. Their
monthly publication,
"Agricultural Research," high-
lights some of their current
projects-
There is often concern that
farming harms waterways. But
many of Oregon's grass seed,
farmer's practices are designed
to preserve water quality. These
practices are being researched
at the watershed level and
results will be used in efforts
such as USDA's Conservation
Effects Assessment Program.
Most fields produce grass seed
that supply much of the United
States and world with seed for
lawns, golf courses, parks, and
pasture. During the wet season


of October through May much
of the rain from the fields drain
into channels. It's in these chan-
nels that many types of fish and
other aquatic creatures dwell
for part of the year. Researchers
determined that 98 percent of
the fish are native to the area
and think that the high number
is attributed to the fact that land
use in the area has changed lit-
tle over time. Computer GIS
tools and satellite images are
used to compare areas where
fish and birds are thriving to
areas where conservation prac-
tices are used. Researchers are
developing computer programs
to show the most economical
combinations of conservation
practices.
Researchers working with
melon growers developed a bet-
ter tasting, sweeter melon that
has higher nutritional value.
Applying a foliar spray of food-
grade potassium formula to
plant leaves during melon fruit
development resulted in a high


quality melon at min-
imal cost.
Nutritional benefits
resulting from the
spray include
increased levels of
beta-carotene (a pow-
erful antioxidant) and
vitamin C. The mel-
ons also have an
increased sugar con-
tent which makes for
a sweeter melon. In a
linked study calcium
applications were
found to help melons

develop stronger rind -
tissue which prolongs .
shelf life. The shelf life of ripe
melons is usually 12 days, but
with calcium treatment it nearly
doubled. Calcium applications
enable growers to provide
greater quantities of melons to
distant markets like Japan.
United States consumption of
watermelon, cantaloupe, and
honeydew melons has increased
by more than 23 percent in the


CDnu


past 15 years. This
research will benefit
a large consumer
base as well as help
economically support
United States melon
growers.
A new device for
sampling airborne
bacteria, viruses, and


i futi spores, such as sal-
E monella and E. coli,
was created at the
SHED ARS Southeast
Poultry Research
Donze Laboratory in Athens,
Ga. The device is
used in poultry oper-
ations and can detect microor-
ganisms present in numbers too
small to be recovered by tradi-
tional methods. Not only has its
technology shown a 20-fold
improvement over traditional
sampling techniques, but it is a
fast, small and convenient
device that is less costly than
previous large, bulky and
expensive devices. Its low cost


and simple operation would
make it practical for use in hos-
pitals too.
A new patent application has
been filed by scientists for con-
verting chicken feathers into
lightweight plastics. Nearly 4
billion pounds of poultry feath-
ers are generated each year in
the United States alone.
Feather-derived plastic would
be a unique material for pack-
aging or any other application
where high strength and
biodegradability are desired.
Current plastic additives such
as glass, talc, mica, and calcium
carbonates add significant


weight to plastic. Using feathers
would be a viable alternative
that would allow for retention
of the properties of those addi-
tives, but would significantly
reduce the weight. Feather-
based plastics would help solve
an environmental problem as
well as increase commercial
and economic value of a natural
renewable polymer resource.

Highlands
The fall season is upon us
and the pineland areas of the
park are bursting with the col-
ors of fall. Bright yellows,
whites and lovely purple flow-
ers can be.found dancing in the
breeze among the. flowering
grasses. It's a fabulous time to
run or bike ride on our off road
bicycle trail. Deer are munching
acorns all over the park and
several bucks have been seen in
the historic orange groves.
While searching for them, be
sure to check out the newest
interpretive exhibit in the park.
Created through a cooperative
effort with the Highlands

Commission, the Friends of

back in touch with me and dis-
cuss future cooperation," Haas
said. "One thing were consid-
ering is for me to bring groups
of people to Jerusalem and
introduce them to the work
being done there."
Haas assures those who
want to visit Israel that they
have the tightest security 'in the
world. The huge wall they are
building will go across the
whole state of Israel and
increase that security. It is built
with sensing devices so no one
can enter undetected.
Also, "guardians of Israel" is


the super-popular
California Toe Jam FL
Band. Nearly 500
people came out last Doroth
year to enjoy the fam-
ily-friendly 1950s,
'60s, and '70s music. Dancing
is encouraged, bring your lawn
chairs or blankets to sit on and
also remember to bring a flash-
light. Concert admission is $5
per person and remember that
children age 16 and younger are


now in place. Bomb sensing
devices serve as protection,
detecting bombs before the
bomber gets on the bus.
Haas hopes to employ a rel-
ative of someone in his congre-
gation as a tour guide. He has
lived in Israel for about 17
years, is a licensed Israeli
guide and is born-again and
spirit-filled. This way, besides
the history of Israel, his groups
will learn about the things of
the Lord as they pertain to the
places they visit.

What if we really had a Madam President?


RAMONA WASHINGTON
El:ec utive1 Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL

Other viewpoints

Could the Bible,.a document held by Christians as the
inerrant and infallible word of God, someday be treated
as hate speech'? As unlikely a scenario as this may seem
considering our nation's history, this is within the realm
of possibility if two trends are allowed to converge into
a perfect storm of political correctness.
America has always placed a premium on the free
exchange of ideas. The First Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law
... abridging the freedom of speech."' .Although most
speech is protected by the Constitution, the Supreme
Court has identified certain types as less deserving of
such protection.
These include incitement to immediate lawless action,
lighting words. obscenity. defamation and false advertis-
ing. Religious speech has always received full constitu-
tional protection, unless it falls within one of these five
categories.
The hist significant trend has developed in Europe.
Over the past decade, many Western democratic nations
such as Gemiany. Sweden, Irheland, Norway, Denmark,
Britain Canada and Australia have passed laws criminal-
izing religious speech that is based on the Bible-
Specifically. these laws target speech that could be
deemed an aggression against the dignity of its citizens,'
particularly those who engage in homosexual behavior.
A second trend, however, makes this foreigii hostility
to religious speech significant within our borders. Over
the past decade. the U.S 'Supreme Court has turned with
increasing frequency to foreign law when ruling on hot-
button issues such as capital punishment, racial discrim-
ination and gay rights.
Evcn imoic doubling. just last month the U.S. House
ot Representatives approved the Local Law Enforcement
Hate Crimes Prevention Act (H.R. 2662). This bill would
extend hate crimes law, which currently covers classifi-
cations of race, religion and national origin, to now
include sexual orientation.
If the Supreme Court holds true to its precedents,
America will weather the incoming storm of political
correctness and preserve our most cherished rights, that
of free speech and free exercise of religion, without the
threat of criminal retribution

An editorial excerpt from The Nevs-Press of Fort Myers.


Two thousand Americans dead, countless dead Arabs.
The war is far away, the casualty count is an abstraction.
We don't want to see the pictures of the dead and
wounded. The pictures make it real, make it personal,
make it hurtful. Mostly kids in their 20s - they had not
yet begun to live, and now they are dead.
Where is their memorial? Our national ritual calls for.
our elected leaders to call them heroes and venerate their
"ultimate sacrifice." And we will collude in this exercise
of national justification, as we always have, in the name
of patriotism and honoring the courage of the dead, and
in a well-meant desire to shield their survivors the pain
of considering that their loved one's sacrifice could have
been avoided. With the ritual completed, we will accept
the death of our young as the costs of furthering our cur-
rent policies and give little or no thought to the matter
again until the next war.
Let us honor our dead for their sacrifice in a just cause;
overthrowing a ruthless dictator and freeing an oppressed
people. Let us also, however, acknowledge our responsi-
bility for their deaths in as much as we failed to elect
leaders who could promote both peace and justice.
If we must wage war, let us do so quickly and deci-
sively, and let us acknowledge, first and foremost, that
war is not a demonstration of strength, but a failure of
vision.

An editorial excerpt from The Gainesville Sun.
U.
Iowans shouldn't be paying such close attention to
news about avian flu that they forget about the flu that
hits closer to home every year.
The specter of avian flu hovers over the entire planet,
and the threat of a pandemic is very real. ... Iowans
should take comfort in the factthat health officials, both
in the state and nationally, are closely monitoring devel-
opments associated with the disease; which has killed
about 60 people in Asia since 2003. Though those offi-
cials disagree over how well they are prepared to deal
with an outbreak, the state has established a pandemic flu
plan that will soon be made public.
In the meantime, lowans need to remember that,
nationally, seasonal flu and flu-related pneumonia put
about 200,000 people in the hospital and kill about
36,000 each year. In Iowa, flu and flu-related illnesses
kill about 1,200 a year.
And there is something you can do to help protect
yourself from it. Flu shots are readily available this year.
lowans, particularly those at greatest risk such as chil-
dren and the elderly, should get them ...
Flu shots are effective; depending on the match
between the viruses that are circulating and those that are
in the vaccine, a flu shot can be 90 percent effective in
preventing the flu. Get one for yourself, and make sure
any children or elderly people for whom you are respon-
sible get a shot, too.


An editorial excerpt from The Gazette, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.


1 was curious about m
SCommander mn LAURA'
Chief' when I first
heard it advertised.
To be honest, I did Laur
not have high expec-
tations for it. This reflects my
opinion of series television in
general, which in my mind has
been going downhill for years.
Up until recently, my regular
TV shows included anything'
"Star Trek" and the new
"Battlestar Galactica" on the
Sci Fi channel, which occasion-
ally jumps to TLC's "What Not
to Wear" (I have a secret fear
that I will be nominated for that
show). Over the past few
months James turned me into a
"Law and Order" junkie, thanks
mostly to TNT showing the
episodes in bulk.
Even though I am big on pol-
itics, I didn't watch the political
series out there, "West Wing." I
just didn't get into it - - it never
seemed to air at a time 1 could
watch it Now I'm afraid I am
too far behind to ever get up to
speed on it.
But I admit that the premise

IMI


-u


of "Commander in
LOOK Chiefr' --a woman
L OOK becoming president
Ware - was intriguing. I
Ware also wondered how a
show that originated
in the blue state of California
would treat conservatives.
Would this show make people
like me to be wild-eyed crazies
with no redeeming values?
Would all the Democrats wear
white hats and all the
Republicans wear black ones? I
decided to check it out.
For those who have skipped
this series, here's the premise in
a nutshell: Vice President
Mackenzie. (Mac) Allen, an
Independent played by Geena
Davis, assumes the presidency
after the death of the
Republican President .Teddy
Bridges. The twist is that on his
deathbed Bridges asks his vice
president to resign, clearing the
way for Republican Speaker of
the House Nathan Templeton to
assume the presidency. Allen
considers the request, then
decides she will do what she
was elected to do - and

Camp owns

lake access

Editor:
Thank you for the opportuni-
ty to respond to a recent letter
to the editor about "the old
swimming hole" at Lake Isis.
We readily agree with the
sentiment that it is a shame that
private land cannot remain
open to the public bathers at a
lake. For many years, Avon
Park Camp Association gladly
opened a section of our land as
an easement to Lake Isis for
public swimming. For most of
those years, everyone had fun.
But, as is often the case,
those using the facility have
ruined the fun for everyone. It
is time for the public to know .
why a decision had to be made,
to, close-our private beach:--
For the last dozen years, our
beach was trashed daily. I apol-
ogize for vivid detail, but the
truth must be known. Now, for
the rest of the story...
* Regularly, young people
engaged in open sex on the
beach, even during the day and
didn't care that our people were
subjected to noticing that
humiliation.
* Regularly, our beach was
littered with used condoms.
* Regularly, young mothers
brought scores of babies to the
beach and as each baby soiled a
diaper, mom took off baby's
dirty diaper, left it laying on the
beach and took the baby into
the lake to wash.
* Regularly,. our beach was
trashed with beer bottles, cans
and abandoned food.
In an attempt to allow the
beach to remain open, here are
some of the activities we tried:
. M Our people took turns
cleaning the beach every day.
* On trash pick-up days, we
carried three full trash cans to
the top of that hill for our fine
sanitation people to empty. The
next day, the filth continued.
* We invited our excellent
police force and our city offi-
cials.
* One of our people even
purchased a little red wagon, to
be filled with cold sodas, to dis-
tribute 'free-of-charge to
bathers. Nothing helped.
* We have stood in our front
yards and watcfied as these
same people walk by, on the
way to the beach and endured
them throwing trash at our feet
into our yards without shame.
Finally, without option, we
sought legal counsel and found
that our only recourse was to
close the beach. Legal research
proved camp ownership of the
access to the lake and it was
closed with city action.
We are truly sorry, but
thought the public deserved to
know why such action was
taken.

becomes president. Granted, if
she hadn't, the series would be
over by now, so you knew she
was. going to take it.
I came away from that
episode with mixed feelings.
President Bridges comes off as
opportunistic, having selected
Allen merely to boost his stand-
ing with women. Templeton,
played by Donald Sutherland, is
portrayed as slime with a capi-
tal S - in some episodes he all
but twirls his moustache as he
plots his villainy.
Even with that I found the
series to be 'intriguing. Allen
keeps her predecessor's old
Chief of Staff, who comes
across as a decent fellow
despite being a Republican. In
subsequent episodes Allen
seems to walk a fine line - she
nominates a Democrat for her
vice president, yet the
Democrats find they can't count
on her to advance their agenda.
What keeps me watching
(besides the flashes of irritation
when it seems to go out of its
way to get a dig in on
Republicans) is that the show is


executed well.
How will a man deal with the
role of First Gentleman? (The
scene where Allen's husband
sees the First Lady's area for
the first time and notes it's all in
pink was priceless). Allen's
kids attend public school -
how do they (and the Secret
Service) cope with that? How
would the nation react to a
female president?
That last should be a no-
brainer. I am hardly a feminist,
yet I think we are long past the
day when it was thought a
woman could not lead a nation.
It is no longer a question of "if'
a woman becomes president,
but "when." Just not Hillary,
please.
There are some friends of
mine who think the first woman
president should be yours truly.
I guess I'd better keep watching
"Commander in Chief' - just
in case.

HEY, WAIT A MINUTES


Mountain top removal in the


The horrendous ._
damage in New
Orleans is beyond '
the imagination of -
most who were not
involved in it person-
ally. We can only
hope the misery of
the people affected is
short lived but we -
know that will not be ENVIRO
the case. Our govern- NOTI
ment has ignored the
needs of those most
LLOYI
vulnerable in other
tragic disasters.
In Virginia, West Virginia,
Kentucky and Tennessee, coal
mining is destroying thousands
upon thousands of acres of the
Appalachian mountains. Bull-
dozers and draglines tear the
tops off mountains and push the
residue into the valleys below.
Mile after mile of streams have
been buried and lost forever due
to this kind of mining.
Mountains succumb to the
coal company bulldozers leav-
ing a flat, ugly, sterile terrain
that barely supports weeds and
brush. The mining companies
are supposed to reclaim the
land, but you can't reclaim a
mountaintop that has been
reduced to rubble and pushed
into the valley below. They are
destroying that part of America.
The people in that area have
been living with this nightmar-
ish disaster for years. For more
than a century such failures of
government to protect the safe-
ty and welfare of the
Appalachian people have been
routine, and the indifference to
the needs of the poor and the
infirm are all but institutional-
ized.
In !972, a dam failed on a
coal waste impoundment on
Buffalo Creek in southern West
Virginia, releasing 132 million
gallons of polluted black water
that rushed down the valley,
killing 125 people, leaving
thousands homeless, and caus-
ing an estimated $50 million in


damage.
Thirty years later,
the story is much the
same. In 2000, 309
* million gallons of
sludge spilled from
an impoundment in
Martin County,
Kentucky, when the
bottom of the reser-
INMENTAL voir failed, releasing
K sludge into under-
EBOOK ground mines that
then flowed into
DJONES rivers. The resulting
spill was larger than
the Exxon Valdez oil spill (28
times larger, in fact) and has
been called the worst environ-
mental disaster in the
Southeast.
In the past 12 months, boul-
ders from mountaintop removal
mines have crushed homes in
Virginia and Kentucky, result-
ing in the tragic death of a tod-
dler in southwest Virginia.
McDowell County, West
Virginia, has been declared a
disaster area three times in less
than two years as a result of
flooding related to mountaintop
removal.
Outside Naoma, West
Viirginia, a man-made impound-
ment (not unlike the levees
around New Orleans) holding
back 2.8 billion gallons of toxic
coal sludge looms directly
above Marsh Fork Elementary
School. There is also a facility
owned by Massey Energy that
spits out toxic coal dust into the
air less than 200 yards from the
school, continually coating the
school walls and playground
equipment in coal soot.
Parents and grandparents of
children attending Marsh Fork
Elementary held repeated
protests over the summer to call
attention to this huge threat to
the lives and health of their
children. The response of local
government? The parents and
grandparents were arrested.
Countless numbers of people
from the Appalachian area have


'Truth is a far better weapon than censorship to

maintain absolute secrecy.'
DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, 34th U.S. president, 1964


Appalachians
called on federal agencies such
as the Office of Surface Mining
and the Army Corps of
Engineers to enforce the laws
that would protect their safety
from the threats of coal
impoundment failures, flood-
ing, coal dust, and flying boul-
ders caused by mountaintop
removal coal mining opera-
tions. The response of the feder-
al government? To continue
giving the big coal companies
just about everything they want.
It is past time for people
across in Appalachia and peo-
ple across the country to ask
some hard questions of govern-
ment about their priorities and
commitment to protecting peo-
ple. We can learn this much
from the disaster in the Gulf -
it is up to "we the people" to
hold negligent officials and
self-interested politicians
accountable for their non-action
and disregard for the people
who put them where they are.

A vibrant star shines bright just at the right time, and keeps shining


Last month I left the
hotel room in Sebring GUEST
for a long run. On vis-
its to my hometown, I
usually run the 10-mile Peter
loop around Lake
Jackson. I don't know why, but
as I walked out the door, I
decided to take another route.
Looping around Harder Hall
Golf Coilrse. I thought only of


Two endings

are too different
Editor:
I waited patiently for the sen-
tencing of Jennifer Porter and
although very saddened by the
punishment she received, I was
not surprised. The light sen-
tencing she received for the
deaths of those two children
and the injuries inflicted on the
other children is tragic 'in itself
but shows that there is definite-
ly something wrong with our
judicial system.
Jennifer Porter never admit-
ted to hitting the children but
admitted to leaving the scene of
the accident and hiding out with
the aid of her parents. She is
white and the children were
black. The mother of the chil-
dren pleaded with the court for
prison time as punishment.
Another case of judicial
injustice comes to mind where
the an innocent man was put in
prison and remains there at this
time. I am speaking of my
future brother-in-law, Jean
Claude Meus, who has been in
prison since March 2005 for an
auto accident. He was sen-
tenced to two 15-year sentences


C

A.


i� Shirley and what to
SOLUMN say about her as I was
OLUMN 'to deliver the eulogy at
her funeral mass the
scititto next day. She was the
oldest and only sister
among the five of us. A single
mom. she lost a courageous bat-
tle with cancer the previous
morning.
Ask the folks in Sebring


to run concurrently.
There are some major differ-
ences in the two accidents
though both were indeed acci-
dents. I am sure that Ms. Porter
did not drive around that
evening looking for children to
hit. Jean Claude Meus, while
driving his semi tractor trailer,
was not expecting to be run off
the road and .be involved in a
fatal accident either.
The differences are striking
though. Jean Claude Meus is a
black Haitian man working
hard for a living as an over-the-
road truck driver. Jennifer
Porter is a young, white woman
working as a school teacher.
Both were involved in acci-
dents where two people died
and two survived. The victims
in Ms. Porter's accident were
black, those in Jean Claude's
were white.
The victims' family in Ms.
Porter's case pleaded for prison


about my sister and they will
tell you she loved her son
Charlie. music, shopping and
getting a sun tan.
Three years ago when cancer
first arrived, she fought it with
everything she had. Shirley
prayed to live to see her
son graduate from Sebring
High. To keep her insurance,
she kept working as a waitress


time as punishment. The vic-
tims' family in Jean Claude's
case pleaded with the judge that
Jean Claude not be sent to
prison for a tragic accident.
These wonderful people are still
working with my sister and I to
get Jean Claude free.
I do know that Jennifer
Porter had a very powerful
attorney and Jean Claude's did
not do all that was needed to be
done. Did that make the differ-
ence? Hopefully, I will soon
hear more as one of the Tampa
news stations has done an in-
depth investigation into Jean
Claude's case and it will be air-
ing shortly on your evening
news.
I do believe that if justice
was really being served,
Jennifer Porter should be sitting
in Jean Claude Meus' cell and
he should be free.

When I turned left on the
road leading to Highlands

vision that will always be with
me. The road was flat and


straight with trees lining each
side. In the distance there was aI
single star shining ahead.
Searching the sky to my left
right, and above I saw no other.
I turned around and saw that
the rising sun had eliminated all
other stars. I continued to run
toward the park, feeling I was
n't alone, gazing at the star.
Like my sister, it was beautiful.
Suddenly, the remaining star
began to fade as the sky was
slowly turning blue. I felt
myself speeding up to reach the
star before it faded away. I had
a strange thought that if I could
get there in time, it wouldn't
wither away.

too soon. I stopped, composed
myself, said a prayer and then
said goodbye to imy wonderlul

the sunrise.

owle We had arrived
around 4:30 p.m. on
Saturday so about 5 p.m. they
came out with hot food and
drinks for everyone.
All evening we were kept
aware of the storm and were
always asked if we needed serv-
ice of any kind. When the
evening shift left, they all came
around and told us they were
about to leave and may see us
the next day. Then the next shift
came around and introduced
themselves and told us if we
needed anything to just ask.
Later in the evening we were
given a snack and also some-
thing to drink.
Lights were out and all was
in order all the time. Never a
moment of panic or worry.


What a good job was done by
this whole team of professional
workers.
After the curfew was lifted
on Sunday, the staff helped us
load up all our mneds and
machines again.
This unpleasant time was
made so easy a time spent wait-
ing for Mother Nature to go
around our town once more.
Thanks to all the helpers and
staff and the sheriff who also
were very visible during our
stay. We really were impressed
and very thankful for all the
help we received. With so many
bad things said about the plan-
ning of help, we want to have
everyone know that Highlands

Outdoor Drama seat sales



reach the $6,500 mark


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - An
amphitheatre seat sales pro-
gram for the Florida outdoor
drama has jumped from $2,600
to $6,500 wcrth of seats,
according to committee chair
Debbie Rutledge.
"We began the seat program
in October to help meet produc-
tion costs of the. historical
drama," she said. "And we are
well on the way to meeting our
goal of $29,000."
These funds will be designat-
ed to music for the new
"Cracker Round-up" produc-
tion for 2006. "Cracker Round-
up" is a mini-play that a reper-
tory company took into 21
schools and civic organizations
in 2004-05. The play, which
introduces the main play char-
acters and historical theme, fea-
tures music written by Teresa
Stein and Doug Andrews. The
new music is currently being
written and highlights a song
about the citrus industry, the
Heartland comedian Bone
Mizell and the finale number
"Wilderness to Wonderland."
Seat sponsors also give indi-
viduals, organizations and busi-
ness owners an opportunity to
honor loved ones, local groups
or their businesses. Golden
Circle ($2,000), Steward

Belcher saves tie for Blue Streaks


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING - Coach Paul Brown
looked more like his Sebring boys soc-
cer team just beaten Lake Wales than
tied them after Friday night's match at
Firemen's Field ended in a scoreless
tie.
Brown jumped up and yelled, "Yes!
We were lucky," after time expired and
his tired Blue Streaks came off the
field.
"What a difference in two nights,"
Brown said, referring to Thursday
night's tough loss to DeSoto in
Arcadia when nothing seemed to go
Sebring's way. "Awesome. Midfield
kept their shape. That's a victory
because that Lake Wales team is disci-
plined and well-coached. You won't
see many more exciting games than
that."
Certainly neither teams' fans were
able to sit back and relax, but for
Sebring the game was extra intense
because the Highlanders put a lot of
pressure on the Streaks' goal.
Goalkeeper Carl Belcher finished with
23 saves, including several diving
plays to thwart Lake Wales scoring
chances. He made several circus saves
and got a lot of support from his
defenders on a night when the for-
wards were not able t6 put on much
pressure.
Sebring mounted perhaps its best
charge into Lake Wales territory with
just over 6 minutes remaining, when
junior Michael Bloemsma fed a per-
fect pass to forward Paul Ashley, but
Lake Wales keeper Kirby Quam got to
the ball just before Ashley's foot.
The Highlanders bounced back and


charged deep into the Blue Streaks
zone and got off a corner kick with just
over a minute remaining. Forward
David Shelton kicked the ball in front
of Sebring's goal, Bloemsma booted


the ball away. Pierre Pancorvo then
sent a rebounding shot back toward the
goal, but Belcher made another diving

Passes pace

LPHS to win

over Devils
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK - Practice
may not always make perfect,
but it definitely pays off.
After concentrating on their
passing game in practice, the
Lake Placid Lady Green
Dragons put on a clinic Friday
night in Avon Park, using their
new skills to set up goal after
goal in an 8-0 win at Joe Franza
Stadium.
"We've been working on it
in practice and they did it well
tonight," Lake Placid coach
Elizabeth Sottile said. "This
was a good win."
Shortly after scoring a goal
in the opening minutes put the
Dragons in front, Maria Garza
sent a pass in front of the Red
Devil goal from the right wing
that was deflected in by Angie
Ochoa for a 2-0 lead, and
Ochoa made it 3-0 when she
picked off a missed punt and
drilled a 16-yarder into the net.
Garza made another nice
centering pass just a few min-
utes later to set up an Alejandra
Lopez goal and Ochoa used her
chest' to redirect Erica
Resindez's comer kick into the

Match of cards

needed in Gala

Golf Tournament
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING - Normally, a 56 is good
enough to win a golf tournament, even a
four-man scramble like Friday's Florida
Hospital Gala Golf Tournament at Sun 'N
Lake. Actually, that score was good
enough to win. Just not for everybody.
Two teams finished at 16-under on the
Turtle Run course and it took a match of
cards to decide the winner, with the four-
some of Dr. Dale Anderson, ,Kim
Schlosser, Phil Raymond and Daryl Ching
taking the top honor over the team of Paul
Morris, Jim Morris, Mike Shawver and
Chris Banks in the first flight. Marvin
Fischer, Pete Pribble, John Clark and
Gerry Geouque were third in the flight
with a 61.
Over on the Deer Run course, a 9-under
63 was good enough to take the first flight,
with Chip Boring, Terry Hartigh, Steve
Ellis and Malcolm Watters teaming up for
the win. The team of Robert Swaine, Scott
LeConey, Robbie Meade and Curtis
Donavan took second on a match of cards
with the team of Eliezer Rada, Israel Rada,
Omri Maranan and Rommel Asumen.
The Turtle Run second flight was was
by the team of Mitch Collins, Cliff Yeasel,
Grover Crawford and Vince Liles with 65.
Jerry Miller, Jim Brooks, Mike Halloran
and Dan Halloran were second with 67
and Ken Schanze, Cheryl Haws, Joe
Munden and Paul Downing teamed up for
third with a 69.
The team of Branden Henderson, Lido
Manahan, Dr. Lao and Dr. Gonzalez shot a
64 to win the Deer Run second flight, fol-

NASCAR


Roush takes car limit


decision personally


By MIKE HARRIS
Associated Press
AVONDALE, Ariz. - Jack
Roush is taking personally
NASCAR's decision to limit
the number of teams a car
owner can field beginning next
year.
But NASCAR chairman
Brian France' insists that the
move is necessary for the future
health of the stock car sport.
The owner of Roush Racing,
the only team fielding five cars
in the Nextel Cup series, issued
a statement Friday at Phoenix
International Raceway tinged
with both anger and frustration.
"They tell me it's not person-
al, but I'm the only guy stand-
ing here with five teams that is
making them work," said
Roush, who has won the last
two Cup titles and has half of
the 10-man field for this year's
10-race Chase for the champi-
onship.
Roush said he feels as if he's
being targeted by NASCAR.
"The thing that they did by
picking five rather than four is
they singled me out," he said.
"The WWF (World Wrestling
Federation) has their ways of
determining who is going to


win and what the ranking is,
and maybe NASCAR behind
the scenes is trying to do the
same thing.
"There are no details. It has
the feel that we're going to
make it up as we go."
Roush said even the timing
of that announcement was
aimed at him.
"They've brought it out just
at a time when we were starting
our Chase," Roush said. "If
they wanted to cause distrac-
tions to my teams; if they want-
ed to create anxiety among my
drivers; if they wanted to create
questions in my sponsors as to
my viability and my commit-
ment and the prospect for
Roush Racing going forward,
they would do exactly what
they've done.
"I do take it personally," he
added.
France and NASCAR presi-
dent Mike Helton held a joint
news conference Friday and
said the hard cap announced
Thursday was in no way meant
to penalize the big teams like
Roush or Hendrick
Motorsports, which fields four
cars full-time and a fifth part-
time.

the right.post and into the net

Freshman Daniel Klatt got
off a long shot on goal for
Sebring during the final minute
and Sebring staved off one
more Lake Wales foray to sal-
vage the tie.
It took a call from the offi-
cials to make the late saves for
Sebring meaningful, however.
During the eighth minute of
play, Cory Hawk sent an indi-
rect kick over the head of
Belcher and Jonathan Beasley
swept in to kick the ball even
though it was going in the net.
The score was negated for off-
sides and Beasley was inside
Sebring's net when he kicked
the ball.

and Jim Loring won the Turtle
Run third flight with a 66, fol-
lowed by the team of Robert
Biemot, Nicole Schlosser, Erck
Griebel and Jim Woodswith '10
and the team of Paul Husky,
Lloyd Burlew, Janice Burlew
and Bill Igel at 72.
A 66 was also the magic
number in the Deer Run third


match early with a 20-yard
shot.
The win lifted the Dragons to
2-1, coming after a 4-0 loss to
Mulberry in the season opener.
and an 8-3 win over Clewiston
on Tuesday. The Devils remain
winless.
"We have a lot of younger
players," new Avon Park coach
Sandra Johpson said. "A lot of
them have never played on the
same team before. It's a learn-
ing process."


That break seemed to fuel
Sebring, and the speech by
Brown and assistant coach
Bruce Cummings in the locker
room before the match also
helped to refocus the Streaks.
For the Blue Streaks, Bradley
Molinaro, Ashley and Chris
Walden played strongly defen-
sively in front of Belcher. Co-
captains Ashley, and Marshal
Merritt added needed leader-
ship for Sebring's young squad.
The bulk of Lake Wales team
plays on a traveling team and it
showed as the players dominat-
ed control of the ball, winning
most of the runs to loose balls
and passing and dribbling up
the field with apparent ease.
That easy path quickly ended
with the Sebring defense and
Belcher.

William Chen, John Palmer,
Scott Clark and Ricky Hayes.
Tomas Macias, Mike Donner,
Barry Terrell and Paul Roberts
came in second with 70 and the
team of Andy Capps, Phil
Marquis and Mike Dobbs was
third with 71.
John Palmer won the long-
drive contest on Deer Run and
Chris Banks was the Turtle Run
winner.
Closest to the pin on Deer
Run No. 11 was Ramon Torres
at 8 feet, 4 inches, on Deer Run
No. 4, it was Terry Hartigh at 4-

marathon in any given week
and not trying to peak for just
one."
Lim's wife, Dr. Carmelita
Lim, also joined him in the run-
ning challenge. The physician
has run 15 marathons, but now
she chooses the half-marathon
as her race.
On a typical marathon week-
end, the two fly to a location on
Friday afternoon. As Seventh-
Day Adventists, they attepd
church on Saturday morning.
Instead of the traditional pre-
race pasta meal, Lim looks for a
Chinese restaurant on Saturday
nights.
"I'm a Filipino," he grinned.
"I eat a lot of rice."
He tries to get to bed early by
8 or 9 p.m. the day before a
race, then Sunday morning he
usually eats an energy bar
before the race. He also carries
a couple energy bars and four
packs-of the energy supplement
GU in a fanny pack during the
race.
"I usually take a Vioxx to
help my recovery," Lim said. "I
carry Aleve or Tylenol for other
runners. At the aid stations, I
alternate my drinks between
water and Gatorade."
With the race completed, the
couple are typically back home
by 9 p.m.
During the first couple years
of the project, Lim saw his
weight drop from 175 to 155
pounds. He said he has main-
tained the 155 mark for four
years.
His fastest marathon was 3
hours, 14 minutes at the
Columbus, Ohio race. His
slowest was nine hours on a
trail marathon at a ski resort in
Vermont.
"It included a four-mile
ascent up the mountain," Lim
said. "They advertised it as a
trail run, but I think that was a
virgin trail. No one but the
organizer had run it."
His favorite races have been
Chicago and Disney. He has run
Disney 1I consecutive times
and plans on his 12th this
January. He enjoys Chicago
because of the cool weather and
the large number of people.
"You can always find some-
one running at the 'pace you
want," he said.
One treat for Lim at Maui
was running with his 29-year-
old daughter, Gessnell. She also
ran with dad at the San Diego
marathon. His 25-year-old son,
Seg, ran Disney once and his
27-year-old son, Ian, will run
Disney with dad this year.
Over the 10-year journey,
Lim has dealt with injuries. His
most significant have been back
pain and plantar fascitis in his
right foot.
"I use othotics to help," Lim
said. "The best thing I did for
injuries was to start taking a
one-minute walking break
every mile. When I implement-
ed that it really minimized my
injuries."
Lim also changes shoes regu-
larly. He estimates that he goes
through four or five pairs of
running shoes in a year, getting
new shoes every 300 miles. His
favorite running shoes are the

adidas Supernovas.
Now that the 50 states goal is
behind him, Lim is already
looking for new challenges.
"My main goal is to do all
the Canadian provinces and ter-
ritories," he said. "I will proba-
bly begin running marathons as
fund-raisers. I want to join
Team-in-Training and raise
money for leukemia in January.
I would also like to raise money
for diabetes and stroke preven-
tion.
He is also considering an
ultra-marathon.
"I believe I could do 50
miles," he smiled. "I'm not sure
how I would fare with 100."
Whether is it 26.2 miles, 50
mile or more, Lim is hooked on
distance running. He loves to
get others hooked too.
His advice to those consider-
ing their first marathon is sim-
ple.
"Train faster and then run
slower. That is the simplest
advice I could give," he said.
"Run faster in training to
increase your fitness level, but
run slower in the race.
"Your first race will be your
personal record. Don't put
stress on yourself for a certain
time."
Lim does not stress about his
time, but you can bet he will
enjoy the journey on the way to
his next- goal.


It's crappie time


Yep, it's that time
again. I see a lot of
boat trailers in the !1
parking lots around
our 'local lakes and
that means the crap- � .
pie season is upon us.
A lot of the fellows
have already been
out and some are *
catching some real OUTD
nice specks. They are -
still in deeper water LLOYI
at this time. --
I met a couple of anglers
coming off of Lake Istokpoga a
few days ago with a pretty good
catch. They had at least 15 nice-
sized crappies and said they
threw back a lot of small fish.
The folks down at Henderson's
Fish Camp report good speck
fishing with several anglers
bringing in the legal limit of 25
fish.
Trails End Fish Camp says
pretty much the same thing.
Those launching there are
catching limits of crappies up to
10 or 11 inches long and good
catches have been coming in
there for the past two weeks.,
Most are trolling small jigs in 8
to 10 feet of water. Over the last
few days, drifting with the wind
seemed to be the most effective.
The speck season will reach
its peak in the next few weeks
and a lot of these much-sought-
after bream will be caught and
on the dinner table. Anglers will
be catching the limit of 25 rou-
tinely and the fish caught will
be heftier.
It is estimated that anglers
catch more than 100,000 specks
each season on Lake Istokpoga.
Being known all over the coun-
try as a trophy bass lake, it is
also one of the top-notch lakes
in Florida for crappies.
There are many other very
good crappie lakes in our area.
Lake Jackson is great for
specks and a lot of specks are
taken from Lakes Josephine,
June, Arbuckle and Dinner. Red
Beach Lake on State Road 17
just north of U.S. 98 has a very
good population of crappies.
Around the Avon Park area,
Lake Lotela and a little farther
south, Lake Letta,' Redwater
and Lake Bonnett produce


m







N


some very good
S specks. There are
several more nearby,
but just too numer-
, ous to list here.
Get out your crap-
pie rig and gas up the
1'4. boat now, or you
might get left at the
boat ramp when the
DORS stampede starts in
-- earnest. Good luck
JONES where ever you
- decide to fish.
You can't go wrong. Any day
spent on the lake is a good day.
One close win
When a four-day bass tour-
nament wound down last week
at McFarland Park in Florence,
Ala., the winner of the 2005
EverStart Series Championship
title took home $140,000. That
is quite a prize for four days of
fishing, but the amazing thing
was the winner's margin of vic-
tory.
Sam Newby's catch of three
bass weighing 6 pounds, 8
ounces on opening day ranked
him in 33rd place. On the sec-
ond day of competition,
Newby's catch put him in fifth
place. With Friday's catch,
Newby entered the final day in
third place.
On Saturday, he brought five
bass to the scales weighing 8
pounds, 3 ounces. His total of
10 bass totaling 18 pounds, 13
ounces topped the second place
finisher, Gabe Bolivar, by 1
ounce. Bolivar's catch of 18
pounds, 12 ounces earned him
$40,000.
That 1 ounce was worth
$100,000.
Newby, from Zocola, Okla.,
used a homemade half-ounce
jig, flipping it to docks and
grass near Pickwick Dam.
This close win for Sam is not
unusual. In the 2002 Forrest
Wood Open on Lake
Champlain, he won by a mere
ounce over Dean Rojas of
Texas and took home $210,000.
So far, his winnings total
$521,531.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2005,
First In a series on what's hot this gift-giving season

By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service

) fris the season of gift giving (or near
Enough) and a brand-new game sys-
tem is surely on several wish lists.
There are a few devices to choose from this
year, but none of them are coveted by every-
one, so choose wisely Here's what each game
system has to offer:


Game Boy Micro/Game Boy
Advance SP
From: Nintendo
System price: $100/$80
Games: $15-$40 each
Give to: Spare-time
enthusiasts/Avid pocket gamers
Since Nintendo's Game Boy line
has dominated the portable game
market it practically (but not
truly) invented, giving one as a gift
is really a no-brainer. However,
there are two modern models to
choose from, the first and coolest
of which is the Game Boy Micro,
the cellphone-sized version for the
stolen-moment gamer who doesn't


want to look like a geek on 1
bus but fondly remembers p
ing-with Mario and friends
in the day, and still can now

There's also the Game Bo

PlaStano able (PSP)
From: Sony
the System price: $250 (Value Pack) or $300 (Giga Pack bundled w/1 GB Memory
play- Stick)
back Games & movies: $30-$50 each
Give to: Affluent gamers
oy The premium portable system is also premium priced, but for good reason.
kier Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) has "technophile" written all over it, not
een only for its large, wide-screen, high-resolution, console-caliber gameplay but.
ntly also as a portable movie and music player, image viewer, Wi-Fi Web browser
back- and content downloader (in "hot spots").
re Bear in mind that most proprietary game and movie discs (called UMDs) for
uses PSP are also priced at a premium (shameless console knock-offs and stripped-
sold down DVD movies though they are), as are the various Sony-only peripherals
un- and appendages you can buy for it, so be sure to give it to someone with an
them over-inflated entertainment budget. -

----------------------------------------------------------- -- ----------- -------
Gizmondo
From: Tiger Telematics
System price: $230 or $500 (Navigator . -
Bundle)
Games: $20-$30 each
Give to: Mobile propellerheads (only)
A geek's gadget that features middling
horsepower and lackluster games but also movie and music playback, a
digital camera, Bluetooth/GRPS connectivity text messaging, Web .
browsing and downloadable content (including force-fed ads). Moreover,
Gizmondo's flagship trick is its onboard GPS, making it the only device
to be innately self-aware of its location on the planet with the potential to
integrate the real world with the virtual in truly unique ways.
Problem is, it doesn't yet, and might never do so. In fact, it seems on
the precipice of going over like a lead Zeppelin, to coin a phrase. Still, its
GPS mapping software, Navigator 2006, reportedly coming available by
Thanksgiving (in $169 and $249 versions or in a $500 Gizmondo Navigator
bundle) will make it a full-functioning, talking co-pilot that comes off
cheaper than a Garmih or Magellan GPS device of similar function
while also playing cheap games, burned movies (or purchased ones),
ripped music, etc. ,, ,, .... ,

Aurora ALX
From: Alienware
System price: $4,449 (and up)
Games: $20-$50
Give to: Real gainers
For the serious gamer, a
Windows PC is the
only game platform;
everything else, toys.'
The ultimate gaming
PC is Alienware's
Aurora ALX. So hot it's
liquid cooled (literal-
ly), even the base
model ALX comes
stuffed with nothing
but state-of-the-art components
(custom upgrades available),.
including an AMD Athlon 64 FX-
55+ w/HyperTransport technology
at least 1GB Ultra Low Latency
Dual Channel PC-4400 DDR RAM
and an Audigy 2 ZS 7.1 HD sound
card.


ALX also utilizes the industry's
new Sli architecture, which allows it
to run two nVidia GeForce 6800 GT
256MB DDR3 video cards in tandem,
so think of the best graphics the
world has to offer, then double it.
As PC game developers continue
to push performance expec-
H stations beyond what most
computers can handle, an
ALX can actually play the
likes of "EE.A.R," "Quake
4" and "Call of Duty 2" with
all settings maxed out,
which makes them entirely
different and ferociously
beautiful animals that no
mere "toy" could hope to emulate.
For the budget conscious, fortu-
nately, Alienware has other gaming
PCs available, from the "all around"
Area 51 3500 ($800 and up) to the
.more prevalent Area-51 7500 ($1;850
and up).

Nintendo DS "Nintendogs" Bundle
From: Nintendo
System price: $150 ($130 system only)
Games: $15-$40 each
Give to: Un-gamers
The Nintendo DS is an innovative game sys-
tem that, since launched, has opened up a
completely new market for the games indus-
try i.e. "everyone else." The bi-folding device
has a touch-sensitive (finger or stylus) screen
on its lower fold (like a PDA screen) and sec-
ond view screen on the upper fold. Plus it
boasts voice recognition, wireless local and
Wi-Fi gameplay (which is free, where avail-
able, in "hot spots" like in airports) and a glut
of unconventional games making use of each
feature all at the same time (plus a large batch
of conventional games).
And since you'll-want to include at least one
marquee game to play on the NDS, you might
as well make it "Nintendogs." Currently avail-
able in a money-saving bundle (or separately),
"Nintendogs" is the wildly successful, widely
praised game of a personal pocket puppy that
has users feeding, walking, training, talking
to and doting on a personalized virtual dog.
And eventually, many of them.

TIP OF THE WEEK:
You'll note the notable absence of Microsoft's
Xbox 360 as a recommended gift idea. Simply stat-
ed, the true Xbox enthusiast is going to own one
already, or shortly, proverbial low-laying fruit that
they are. General consumers and seasonal gift
givers are best advised to wait until next year for
such a purchase, when the price is expected to
drop significantly to coincide with Sony's
PlayStation 3 launch, according to the folks at
mighty Merrill Lynch, perennial financial m n-
agement moguls that they are.
Atthat that point, Xbox 360 will not only have hit its
stride with economies of scale, but it'll be in its
second generation of games, which traditionally
means superior gameplay as developers get com-
fortable with the new technology, while the PS3
fumbles though all sorts of technical and financial
shenanigans typical of overwrought, way too pro-
prietary technically baffling hardware for a year
oi so after that.
