SEBRING - The driver of a
recreational vehicle pulled out
in front of a semitrailer and was
killed Friday.
Robert E. Backstrom, 72, of
Royal Palm Beach, died on the
scene. His wife, Norma G.

Local resident looks to community for help


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING - Thanksgiving,
a time to reflect on blessings, is
here. What could be more
deserving of gratitude than the
blessing of health and life
itself?
- Many people's lives, howev-
er, hang in the balance as they
await a suitable match for a life-
saving transplant.
Such is the case of life-long,
Highlands County resident
Donald Tauchen, of Spring


Lake.
Tauchen, 49, was diagnosed
in 1999 with a rare disease
known as Paroxysmal
Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria
(PNH). His disease has pro-
gressed over the years, and he is
now in dire need of a bone mar-
row transplant. Without it the
condition will worsen and most
likely become leukemia or
aplastic anemia - both of
which are fatal.
Florida's Blood Centers-
Highlands will be hosting a


bone marrow drive on Tuesday,
at the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center in Sebring from
10a.im. to 6p.m. Tauchen and
the center are hoping that resi-
dents will take 45 minutes to an
hour out of that day to donate
blood and/or be screened as a
potential bone marrow match.
Tauchen first looked to his
siblings, John and Kathy
Tauchen, and Connie Bailey
(those most likely to be a
match), for help, then to his
friends. Without success,


though, he is now turning to the
community for help.
Tauchen and his wife of 29
years, Sherri, know that even if
no match for him is found, one
may be found for someone in
the sea of more than 300,000
people currently in limbo
between life and death, await-
ing a suitable donor.
Tauchen's disease is a rarely
acquired, life-threatening dis-
ease of the blood characterized
by destruction of the red blood
cells, development of blood


clots, and impairment of bone
marrow function. Only one to
two persons per million have
been diagnosed with this dis-
ease, according to Deah Spires,
donor development coordinator
for Florida's Blood Centers-
Highlands. At this time the only
corrective therapy for this con-
dition is a bone marrow trans-
plant.
PNH victims are affected by
the disorder in varying levels of
severity. "In some people,"

Police crack down on



prostitution, drugs


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring police officer Michael Cutulo secures Cwan Dewberry, 35,
during a prostitution reverse sting operation Friday night on
Ridgewood Drive. Dewberry seemed to negotiate with undercover
officers posing as prostitutes, but did not actually make an offer. He
did however tell them he had drugs, which was enough for officers
to move in and search him. They found crack cocaine and drug
paraphernalia.


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Sometimes
police can make two prostitu-
tion arrests in a four-hour
stretch, or none.
One time they arrested six at
once, Sebring Police Det. Tom
Gilliard said. Six men drove up
in a van and propositioned
undercover officers for all of
them.
After two undercover offi-
cers walked the streets for a
couple of hours Friday, police
had nabbed one man for drugs
and another for actual solicita-
tion.
Gilliard said people solicit-
ing prostitutes are usually older
or Hispanic, but there are
exceptions. Actual prostitutes
usually do it for crack cocaine,
but they rarely get caught with
it on them.
As soon as they get the drug,


they use it, Gilliard said, and
are back on the corner 15 min-
utes later for money for the next
high.
Gilliard said it sometimes
takes a while for undercover
officers to get into the act, but
they have specific rules. Don't
separate. Don't leave with the
men. Make sure a man says
what he wants and for how
much without leading ques-
tions.
"They can't instigate," he
said, but it's usually not diffi-
cult. About 90 percent of
respectable people are at home
late at night and wouldn't auto-
matically think two women
standing around in public are
prostitutes.
They sometimes meet resist-
ance, Gilliard said. Either regu-
lar prostitutes tell on them, try-
ing to protect their work or
clients, or customers will only


go for prostitutes they regularly
visit.
When a driver has passed by
several times, it's a good bet
he's interested, even with some-
one he doesn't know, Gilliard
said. Most of those who stop to
talk are probably soliciting.
"Why else do you stop (at
night) and talk to two strange
women?" Gilliard asked.
About an hour into the sting,
Cwan Dewberry, 35, drove up
the undercover officers while
they stood at the Shell gasoline
station at Sebring Parkway and
Ridgewood Drive. He then met
them on Pear Street.
He asked them several times
to get into his car, but they
wouldn't - for safety. The
undercover officers asked him
several times what he wanted,
and if he had crack. He told
them he had cash and had dope,

Fischer voted new Sun 'N Lake general manager


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Marvin
Fischer has resigned his post as
president of the Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring Board of Supervisors to
serve as the improvement dis-
trict's general manager.
He was nominated by
Supervisor Bob Severino, who
was then chosen to serve as
president in his place.
Before making that change,
however, the supervisors voted
to renew the contract with
Severn Trent Services Inc. as
the managing company of the
district, including the provision
for part-time general manager
Bill Neron. Fischer plans to


meet with Neron Monday after-
noon to work out a smooth tran-
sition for the district town hall.
He also hopes to realign
some of the staff positions since
the district offices have
employees of both Severn Trent
and the district.
Having Fischer take over as
general manager is something
that has been discussed on and
off for the last year, but he said
he has no desire to make it long
term. By the vote of the board,
he'll hold the job less than two
years.
"I serve here because I have a
desire to see the community
move forward," he said.
To people, who say he has no


background in government
operations, he'll have staff to do
the technical work. His back-
ground, he said, is as a leader
who has worked with the super-
visors and knows what they
want to see in the district.
He wants to help the district
put reorganization troubles
behind them and work toward
helping staff achieve long-
range goals for the district.
There will be a workshop on
these goals on Wednesday, Dec.
7.
The decision on Fischer
came after members of the
board expressed concerns with
having Bill Neron, a part-time
general manager with Severn


Trent, also answering to the
board.
Supervisor John Negley said
there is a lot of frustration from
a lack of communication among
staff and between Severn Trent
and the other contract services,
such as Kitson & Partners run-
ning the golf course and
National Recreation Properties
Inc. running land sales.
Severino asked Negley
"where he was a year ago,"
because he'd talked about the
same problems. However, he
recommended Severn Trent
take over running the district's
utilities and public works
because that is the company's
area of expertise.


Edward Goscicki, vice-presi-
dent of Severn Trent Services
Inc., said his company will
want at least a 30-day transition
period to recruit people who
can help get the utilities depart-
ment in place. He also plans to
work with Severino to work out
some of the details of the com-
pany's contract with the district.

The contract will come back
before the board for further
review and amendments in
December. Goscicki wanted to
go ahead and start those negoti-
ations and get the people he
needed now, rather than have to
work it out in the last two
weeks of the year.

SEBRING - More than
8,500 school were in the hunt
-the national contest with five
computer package prizes, each
worth $10,000.
It seemed simple to do. For
eight weeks votes were made at
an Internet address. The five
schools with the most votes by
deadline would each win one of
the prizes.
Sebring Middle School is
one of those five.
But winning turned out to be
anything but simple. In fact, the
contest had all the high drama
of a tight Nascar race, or the
seventh game of a World Series.
The school started slow. At
the second week mark, it was
ranked 222nd. Then everyone
got serious.
A week later, it was in the top
10, and a week after that, in the
top five.
The last four weeks of the
contest were a roller coaster
ride, as the school would lose
ground or gain ground, or sim-
ply hold its own, but never fell
below sixth place.
The students, staff, parents
and friends of the school never
lost their focus or hope.
Not even during those
moments when it was knocked
into sixth place. Not even when
another school came out of
nowhere, well into the race,
posting 60,000 votes in one day.
That school ended up with
the second most votes, but
through it all, Sebring Middle
held on, refusing to lose.
In the end, Sebring Middle
produced 580,174 votes and
were solidly in fifth place.
Consider that over 50 percent
of Sebring Middle students
don't have computers at home.
Consider that 95 percent of the
students at the other winning
schools did, and so could vote
after school.
"It was the determination of
the students, staff and people in
the community that made it
possible," said Sebring Middle
School Principal Sandi
Whiddon, who couldn't stop
smiling Friday afternoon.
For eight weeks she and the
.rest of the school have eaten,
slept and lived for the contest.
"I'm not going to know what to
do, now that it's over," she
laughed.
That's because, early on it
became clear it would take'
tremendous effort to win the


I race.


"The challenge was to keep it
fresh, to keep it going,"
Whiddon said. "We came up
with some creative ways to
keep everyone pumped and vot-
ing."
For instance, there were chal-
lenges set during certain half
hours. Groups of voters were
pitted against each other.
Assigned a different time slot,
the group that produced the
most votes during their half
hour won a prize or bragging
rights.
So it was the staff versus the
students, the boys versus the
girls (the staff and the boys
won).
The most productive contest,
suggested by teacher Christie
Howerton, was the college
challenge: Gators versus Noles
versus Other. Noles beat out the
Gators, but Other placed first.
There was club day on a
Saturday, when the National
Junior Honor Society beat out
the Future Farmers of America,
and the Student Government.
And a Saturday overnight, with
voting, in rotation, from 8 p.m.,
to 8 a.m.
The computer lab was kept.
open to anyone willing'to vote.
Students gave up part of their
lunch hour to pound out the
votes.
Two times the staff made a
huge difference. Once, when
another school was coming up
from behind, all 80 staff mem-
bers, produced close to 80,000
votes in slightly less than three
days, beating back the threat.
But the best voting by far,
Whiddon said, came during the
last days, and especially the last
night. Lap tops were added to
the school's regular number of
computers, and adult volunteers
seriously pounded the keys, set-
tling the matter once and for all.
Too many people worked too
hard, to single out one hero, but
a worthy student does deserve
recognition.
To keep everyone's energy
up, it was possible to win
prizes. The grand prize, provid-
ed by the staff, was a top-of-
the-line computer . complete
with bells and whistles.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Sebring Middle School staff and faculty pitched in to provide a grand prize available to students. Entry
tickets were awarded to high voting students, which then became part of a random drawing. Rene
Gomez, a seventh-grader, voted so regularly he earned a large number of tickets.


Students earned tickets
throughout the contest, and
those tickets were put into a
random drawing for the com-
puter. Students could earn more
thair.one ticket.
SSeventh-grader Rene Gomez,
who didn'tt have a home com-
putei, had voted through thick
and thin, day after day. "He
never missed a beat," said
Whiddon.
As a result, he had so many
tickets in the drawing he had a
numerical edge and won the
computer.
Whiddon is hoping an
Internet provider will step up to
the plate and offer Gomez a
year of free access, so he can
make use of his prize.
"A lot of good things came
out this competition," Whiddon
said. "It made kids realize to
achieve a. goal is hard work, and
doesn't happen overnight. And
of course, it was wonderful for
them to be rewarded by win-
ning.
"Another real benefit, I got to
know some of kids, and their
families real well, and they got
to know me. There was a lot of
school spirit and community
spirit, especially during the last
month."

Police bust Sebring Internet for illegal gambling


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Police have
busted an illegal gambling
facility at Fairmount Cinema
Square.
On Thursday, police execut-
ed. a search warrant at Sebring
Internet, an alleged Internet
access location for people with-
out home or business service, at
3750 U.S. 27 North, Suite G. It
was part of an investigation
since 2004 into businesses
operating under pretense of
being "arcade amusement cen-
ters" and "Internet. cafes" while
actually providing gambling.
Sebring Police Det. Tom
Gilliard said Sebring Internet
came up during the end of the
previous wave of investigation,


and has been under investiga-
tion for about six months.
When police discovered the
facility was operating illegally,
they gave the business a chance
to comply with the law by issu-
ing a cease and desist order in
conjunction with the 10th
Judicial Circuit State Attorney's
Office. That order was given
sometime after Nov. 12.
An undercover officer dis-
covered, however, that several
patrons of the store were play-
ing computer games that simu-
late slot machine or "eight
liner" games of chance.
This was also observed in
October by members of the
News-Sun staff.
Assistant manager Alicia
Niemeyer told the News-Sun in


an Oct. 26 article that Sebring
Internet provides online access
for those without computers or
Internet connections at home, or
who are away from their com-
puters while on business.
It's done with phone cards,
she explained. A customer buys
a phone card, deposits money in
the account, and then uses the
card on a machine at the .ite or
at another location, using a card
reader similar to ones at com-
puters in public libraries.
For 35 cents per minute (after
10-15 free minutes), a person

half of which, she said, is

Police told the News-Sun that
the alleged affiliation was not a
part of their investigation,
although that affiliation does
not give the business the right
to gamble or protection from
Florida law.:
Under Florida Statute
849.01, anyone who either
alone or using an agent, servant
or employee, keeps or main-
tains a gaming table or room,
including the apparatus, for
gambling is guilty of a third-
degree felony.
This holds true whether the


gambling is in a booth, tent,
shelter, or other place over
which the person may directly
or indirectly have charge, con-
trol or management, or if that
person only allows gambling to
take place.
Police made one arrest dur-
ing the search. Marilyn K.
Spaulding, 50, of Sebring, has
been charged with gambling,
specifically being an agent or
employee of a keeper of a gam-
bling house. Bail was set at
$1,000.
Spaulding allegedly told
police she was a volunteer for
Ambucs.

Got plans? Goals? Family? It's about time


By PHIL ATrlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Are work, play
..and life frustrating?
Stressed and frustrated peo-
pile feel they don't have enough
time and can't get past daily
grinds.
They need time management.
Duwayne E. Keller of Keller
& Associates Inc., a franchisee
of the Dale Carnegie Training,
said he earned a doctorate in
procrastination, and he had to
unlearn it. In a seminar
Wednesday at Chateau Elan
Hotel and Spa, he showed 25-
30 local professionals how to
help themselves and their
employees better use time.
Usually time frustration
means the system in place -
whether communication at
home or work or the means for
managing time - isn't work-
ing. Improve the system, he
said, and the frustration will go
away.
A first step, Keller said, is
setting future goals, writing
them down to make them tangi-
ble, then sharing them with
another person, to make your-
self accountable.
Next, organize. Keller likes
to organize his week over the
weekend, so he's ready to go
Monday morning.
"I want to do it, because if
I'm shooting from the hip, I'm
in trouble," he said.
Making a plan and sticking to
it is hard. Interruptions, meet-
ings, others' mistakes or prob-
lems to solve, and poor commu-
nication, among internal dis-

Central America
Associated Press
MIAMI - Tropical Storm
Gamma drifted north Saturday
off the coast of Central
America, with forecasts indi-
cating it could threaten storm-
weary South Florida by the
beginning of next week.
However, if National
Hurricane Center predictions
are accurate, it will be nothing
more than a rain event for
Highlands County.
Gamma was expected to
speed up and turn northeast
today, sending it across the
northeastern Caribbean Sea and
toward western Cuba.
On its present forecast path,
Gamma would be passing over
Cuba and approaching- the
Florida Keys island chain on
Monday.
The track seems similar to
that of Hurricane Wilma.

tractions like procrastination,
unrealistic expectations of time

To help yourself, Keller rec-

forcing yourself if necessary -
blocking out time for tasks and
enforcing it, then moving all

It's also important to have
positive conversations with
yourself, Keller said.
"We plant seeds;" he said,
"things we say to ourselves that
help or hurt us. The most
important words I say are the
words I say to myself."
The benefit of controlling
time is balance, he said: Having
career, family, recreation, work
and leisure.

Heartland Heritage Foundation closer


to 'Florida: Wilderness to Wonderland'

and to presenting the ltorN of
'Floridij.' a outdoor drama
v, ntien h) Tere-a Siein.
The play focuses on Florida
pioneers who settled the land
for cattle and citrus, but also
about the Seminoles, the strug-
gles between the two people
and the unique characters who
helped forge the new state.
One such man was Jacob
Summerlin, "King of the
Crackers" who was born in
1821 in a north Florida town
called Alligator - now Lake
City. He fought in the Civil War
and in three wars against the
Seminoles, but considered him-
self a peacemaker.
His story and others' will be
told at the amphitheater, which
is still being constructed. David
Mundhenk said the 30-acre site
has a lot of wetlands. It's great
aesthetically, but hard to devel-
op.
During the night, Tommy
and Bonnie Crutchfield were
honored as "Golden Circle
Donors" and a promotional film
- "Florida: Wilderness to
Wonderland" - was presented
to the foundation members.

City OKs

apartment

building on

Lakeview
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - On Tuesday,
city council members approved
a multi-family development on
Lakeview Drive between Park
Street and Hemlock Avenue.
Developer Arthur Marrero
wants to build an apartment
building on roughly eight lots
in that stretch, starting from
Hemlock Avenue and heading
south.
He and city council members
debated through much of the
meeting over the building code
and the move by city council to
restrict high-density residential
to 12 units or less per acre.
When Marrero bought the
property, the density was 40.
During this past year, the coun-
cil has dropped it to 24.
Now the city has proposed
dropping it to 12, based on a
recommendation from Michael
Joachim & Associates.
Most of the concerns from
city council members involved
the aesthetic of the building or
the height. Some remarked how
The Fountainhead was built
before the current zoning den-
sity control measures were in
place.
"Once the building is there,
we've got it for 50-100 years,"
Councilwoman Margie
Rhoades said.
According to the develop-
ment agreement proposed
Tuesday, Marrero would build
a four-story building, no more
than 45 feet from the first floor
height to the tie beam, with no
living or recreational space
under the first floor.
Rhoades wanted to have the
height measured from the
crown of the roof, but Marrero
warned that would encourage
developers to build flat-roofed
buildings.
He also said he lost some
land value with the drop from
40 units per acre to 24 units,
despite having his site plan
approved.
Rhoades said 40 units per
acre would drop the level of
service on Lakeview Drive
below what it is now, and the
county would not be willing to
give him a driveway permit.

Career educator ready for a seat on governing board


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Chet Brojek,
former teacher, dean, and still
current coach at Avon Park
High School, is now running a
race of a different sort - that
for the District 5 seat on The
School Board of Highlands
County.
The seat comes open next
November, with current board
member Wendy Renfro's
announced retirement after
three terms of office.
"I would probably not have
run," Brojek said, "if Wendy
had chosen to run, because I
have known her for years, and
respect all the work that she's
done on the school board."
Brojek is a career educator.
He taught history and English at-
Avon Park for 35 years, and
served as its dean for six. A
school's dean deals mostly with
discipline.
For 39 years he worked as a
coach, and was athletic director
for 25 years.
In an interview, Brojek out-
lined some of the issues he sees
the school board facing over the
next several years.
"With the (half cent sales) tax
being voted down (last May),.
and the class (size) crunch, I
think that's going to be one of
the big issues the new board
will have to deal with," he said.


BROJEK
"In speaking with the super-
intendent (Wally Cox), he said
they were already $57 million
behind in what they need now
to build schools.
"We're probably going to
have to look at impact fees and
see what kind of funding that
will make.
"Obviously, the growth of the
tax base will help somewhat,
but from what the superintend-
ent tells me it's a Band-Aid.
Those things are not going to
really solve the problems.
"However, taxpayers have to
be listened to; they said 'no' on
the half cent (sales tax). I think
it's going to require the board to
make some tough choices."
Brojek pointed out that the
funding shortfalls, and increas-
ing student population come at


a time when schools have to
adapt to the changing world
their students face.
"When you and I went out of
school, we probably thought a
career was one or two choices.
Today, the average child will
probably change careers five
times, so they're going to need
a broader education.
"We've failed that child if
they're not prepared to be a pro-
ductive citizen," he said, then
added, "A high school diploma
is not the door opening diploma
it used to be. Eighty-five per-
cent of these kids have to have
some (training) post (high)
school, and it can't start in their
senior year.
"I think it's not too soon to
start targeting students in the
seventh and eighth grades -
finding out their interests.
Assessing where children are is
an important element of educa-
tion. If we're not moving them
forward, then we're not meeting
our accountability as educators.
"The' bulk of young people
are going to need some tracking
into (career choices), and the
preparation for those things,"
Brojek said. "
"(My students) who had no
real -grasp on what they wanted
to be, it opened my eyes a little
bit, into, that's maybe why they
didn't see any value in the edu-
cation they were getting,


because they didn't have any
direction; they didn't have a
goal.
"We need to give them a
goal, and have them work
toward it, so when they get to
be a senior whatever the post
high school experience, they're
prepared for it."
He added that changing con-
ditions in the workplace made it
more important than ever
before that a student leave
school with the skills and open
mindedness to be a lifelong
learner. " This will be a key," he
said. " (Our students) have to
realize that continuous training
is going to be an element of
their life."
Brojek works with the
Alternative Certification of
Teachers program, administered
by the Heartland Education
Consortium. Brojek supervises
new teachers who enter the
field after careers in business or
the military.
Put simply, he reviews lesson
plans, and judges the new
teachers' competencies as edu-
cators, while helping them
improve their skills.
"I see this is something we
need to have," he said. "I think
this is going to be a big source."
Brojek recognizes the school
district has intensified its
recruitment program, but feels
even more has to be done.


Tuck hopes to make a difference


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Andy Tuck is a
lifelong resident of Highlands
County. For 15 years he has
worked as a fertilizer and agri-
cultural sales representative
with Ben Hill Griffin Inc.
He is running for the District
5 seat on The.School Board of
Highlands County. That seat is
open as school board member
Wendy Renfro has announced
her retirement at the end of her
current term.
"She's done an incredible
job," Tuck said of Renfro in an
interview.
Tuck had decided to run
before Renfro announced her
retirement.
"I like making a difference,"
he said, " and the biggest differ-
ence you can make is in the
educational system. If you don't
make the difference there, noth-
ing else really matters as far as
I'm concerned. Our education
is paramount.
"I think there's a lot of chal-
lenges facing the school sys-
tem," he said, "from class size
issues to teacher shortage
issues. The most important
thing that I think we've got fac-
ing us is we've got to get more
parental awareness and involve-
ment in the lives of our stu-
dents.
"Many of our problems will
be solved if we can promote
parental involvement, making
them more aware of what's
going on in the school system."
He added that he had been
attending school board meet-
ings for about a year, and was
very surprised and disappointed
in the low level of attendance.
"A lot of times I'm the only
one there," he said. "There's
just a lot of taxpayer money


being decided there in those
meetings that I feel like parents
and the public in general should
become more involved. I think
we need to advertise school
board meetings more aggres-
sively."
On the subject of school
funding, Tuck supports impact
fees. "Let growth pay for
itself," he said.
On the subject of the half-
cent sales tax, however, he was
not as supportive.
"If there is going to be a tax
increase of some sort," he said,
"the people need to be able to
vote on it.
"I think we saw in May that
the people spoke pretty loudly
on the sales tax," he added.
"The one thing that concerns
me in that issue is I don't see a
plan B for our class size prob-
lems behind the half-cent sales
tax, and it may have to be put
on the ballot again."
' He said he would not be for
or against the tax in his cam-
paign. "I prefer to let the people
make the decision, and I'll
stand behind whatever decision
the people make."
Tuck does have doubts about
the need for a sales tax increase,
however.
"Well, one of the questions I
have in this whole issue of
school needs is, as agricultural
land is developed and put into
housing developments, our tax
base is going to be raised con-
siderably.
"The majority of our county
is retirees, so I have a question
as to whether we're going to
have the influx of students that
we think we're going to have.,
"If the half-cent sales tax
doesn't pass, with impact fees
and increased tax revenue from
development, I think that will


TUCK
take up a big part of it."
On the subject of teacher
shortages Tuck believes a
greater effort has to be made in
recruiting young people to the
profession.
"We have to go to the high
schools and really promote the
profession of teaching to stu-
dents - emphasize the benefits
of being a teacher, emphasize
the hours, but most importantly,
emphasize the difference you
can make in the lives of young
people, and the influence you
can have on this country," he
said.
"My wife, (Sandee, a sixth-
grade language arts teacher at
Hill-Gustat Middle School),
loves being a teacher. She gets a
lot of self-satisfaction, a lot of
self-confidence, out of being .a
teacher, knowing there's noth-
ing better than seeing that light
go on inside a kid's head.
"I think you have to get out
there and make the teaching
profession something that's
important, and something that
people really want to do."
Tuck volunteers at his chil-
dren's schools, and is a frequent
chaperone on field trips. He has
worked with Ag-Venture for
several years, and "tries to stay
involved in school activities as


much as possible."
Tuck believes his business
experience will benefit the
school board.
"I think it's important to get
business leaders in the commu-
nity on this board'" he said.
"For the last 15 years I've
worked in agri-production as
opposed to sales, and in a
downtrodden industry. For the
last 15 years we've had to do a
lot more with a lot less - the
same thing the school system is
facing right now with trying to
build schools with no money."
Tuck is in his second term as
a board member with the Citrus
Growers Association. He has
just joined the board of the 4-H
Foundation, after volunteering
for three or four years.
He was a member of
Leadership Highlands 2004.
His family has been in
Highlands County for about 80
years. He was raised in Lake
Placid, graduating from high
school in 1987. His father,
Doug Tuck, has been a deputy
sheriff for more than 30 years,
and his mother, Arlene Tuck,
has been Lake Placid's city
clerk for about 20 years.
Tuck graduated from Florida
Southern College in 1990, with
a bachelor of science degree in
business. He and his wife have
two children - Caylee, 11, and
Tanner, 5.


In particular, he believes
more minority teachers need to
be brought into classrooms.
Brojek was born at
Hendricks Field where his
father was stationed during
World War II. He has deep
Florida roots on his mother's
side of the family.
He was raised in Erie, Penn.,
and graduated from Edinburgh
University of Pennsylvania
with a bachelor of arts degree in
social studies and a minor in
English. He has done graduate
work at Rollins College and the
University of South Florida.
He has lived and taught in the
Heartland since 1968.


Brojek is chairman of the
Mid-Florida Credit Union's
board of directors. He said it is
an $876 million corporation,
and the board has to make busi-
ness decisions.
"I think that business sense,
that a lot of educators might not
have, is in my portfolio,
because I've worked on that
board," he said.
"I've worked on task forces
through the educational system
that dealt with issues facing
Lake Placid, Sebring, and Avon
Park," Brojek added, "so it
seemed a natural thing for me to
step into a race like the school
board."

City sends 12-unit density to


planning and zoning board


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - City council
members took another step
toward tighter restrictions on
housing density.
On Tuesday, the Sebring City
Council voted 3-2 to drop high-
density residential zoning from
24 units per acre to 12, and to
send it on to the local planning
and zoning board for review.
Tracy Mullins of Michael
Joachim and Associates said
Joachim recommended 12 units
after the two of them studied
similar communities in Florida
and took the average density for
that zoning.
At 24, he said, Sebring had
theihighest number of dwelling


units per acre. Some had 18;
some had eight. The mean was
12, he said.
With 12, he said, the council
would have the most control
over development. If a develop-
er wants a higher-density, it
could be done through a
planned unit development,
which would give the council
more control over the layout of
the site plan.
Councilman John Griffin
preferred to lower the density to
18 units per acre, if it was to be
lowered at all. However, only
he and Councilman Bud
Whitlock voted in favor of that.
In the end, council members
Jeff Carlson, Annette Daff and
Margie Rhoades voted in favor


of 12 units per acre.
Both Rhoades and Mayor
George Hensley said they want
to have more control over how
the city gets developed.
Hensley said if the county
picked 12 based on water and
sewer needs, that made sense to
him.
Landowners and developers
wanted to know how Mullins
and Joachim defined "like"
communities. They said the
stricter cdde would send devel-
opment elsewhere, hurting local
economic development in the
city limits, especially down-
town.
Rhoades was willing to take
that risk to protect the character
of the city. ' '

Stupinski

fills seat on

Authority
SEBRING - Gregg
Stupinski of Smith Barney
Investments has been chosen to
fill an empty seat on the
Sebring Airport Authority.
Stupinski was voted in unan-
imously by the Sebring City
Council to replace John Martz
who has reportedly moved
from the area on a job-related
matter.
Stupinski was chosen against
Kevin Brown of South Florida
Community College, another
highly-qualified candidate.
Both had endorsement from the
county commission.
"I was surprised to be cho-
sen," Stupinski said.
He had previously served on
the Sebring Community
Redevelopment Agency for
four years. In March 2005, he
and his family moved out of the
agency's boundaries and he
gave up his seat.
"Knowing what I know
about the growth there (at the
airport), I wanted to be a part of
that," Stupinski said.
As for what he hopes to
accomplish at the airport, he
does know some of the
prospects there, including the
extended runways and village
connected to the airport. He
plans to go in with his eyes and
ears open.

Mother and daughter artists


publish 'Art Lessons Notebook'


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - When
Cathy Cranford Futral, profes-
sor of the South Florida
Community College Art
Department, wanted to design
and illustrate a book of art les-
sons, she turned to her daugh-
ter, Sarah-
The product of their five-
month collaboration, "Art
Lessons Notebook: 101
Lessons, Elementary to Adult,"
is now complete. The Futrals
hope it will find its way to a
publisher sometime next year.
As its title indicates, "Art
Lessons Notebook" has been
compiled in a three-ring binder.
Color-coded chapters focus on
drawing, design, watercolor,
painting, crafts, and sculpture.
Individual lessons explain
everything from basic materi-
als, principles of design and


composition, and the color
wheel to drawing portraits,
painting seascapes, making a
clay coil pot, and weaving bas-
kets.
Each simple lesson has
approximately three to six
steps. The level of difficulty
and time invested depends
entirely on the student. For
example, the first lesson, on
using lines for design, might
take a 6-year-old 10 minutes to
draw a few basic patterns, while
an older student, with a more
mature eye, could easily spend
45 minutes toying with intricate
designs.
Futral said the inspiration for
the book goes back 30 years. As
a beginning teacher, she bene-
fited from an experienced art
teacher's handwritten lessons.
"I'm often asked to do art
lessons for all ages," Futral


~p.

Sarah Futral (left) helped illustrate and design "Art Lessons
Notebook," which was written by her mother, Cathy Futral, an
SFCC art professor. - -


said. "I thought the book would
be a good resource for begin-
ning art teachers or for anyone
who wants to teach children
about art. I wanted it to be a
notebook so that pages could be
copied or added to it."
From March through May,
Futral began entering her les-
sons into her computer. In May,
she approached Sarah about
illustrating and designing the
book. With a talent for drawing
and an interest in graphic
design, Sarah had just graduat-
ed from Walker Memorial
Academy in Avon Park and was
set to begin classes at SFCC in
the fall. The project consumed
her summer.
For the novice author and the
novice designer, it turned out to
be a learning experience.
Sometimes, the lesson was
compromise.
"It was frustrating. We are
both artists, and we disagreed,"
Sarah Futral said. "Because she
is my mom, I could tell her
what I thought needed to be
done. She didn't always agree
with me."
In one 18-hour working ses-
sion, the mother and daughter
created the samples of the art
projects that are used as the
book's illustrations. Sarah then
took photos of the projects and
scanned them into her comput-
er. She designed the book in
Microsoft Word.
Other contributors pitched in
as well. Sample artwork was
provided by Futral's son,
James, her former art student,
Kim Boyd, . and John
Rodriguez. The book was edit-
ed by Patricia Kinsaul Lamb,
the newly elected president of
the Florida Art Association.
The first self-published
copies came back in early
October. Since then, Futral has
shared them with Polk County
art teachers and in a seminar at
the Highlands Art League. In
January, she will give art les-
sons on Thursday evenings at
the Frostproof Art League.

Ed Slott, CPA,America's IRA Distribution Expert and author of "The
Retirement Savings Time Bomb and How to Defuse It," has trained local
financial advisor, Craig Johnson, in IRA distribution strategies that the most
successful IRA investors want to employ. Less than 1,000 financial advisors
have completed this specialty training that teaches top financial advisors to
answer questions and provide advice that few advisors can. Slott says that his
trained advisors can address these questions that any serious IRA owner
should ask their financial planner.
What resources or publications do you use to keep up
to date with changing IRA distribution rules?

What is the last new IRA ruling or tax law change
you are aware of? -
Who should I name as my IRA beneficiary?
Can you show me the IRA life expectancy table
you use to calculate required IRA distribution for
both IRA owners and beneficiaries?
What will happen to my IRA after my death?
Who do you call when you have questions
about IRA Distributions?

You can ask these questions to your current
advisor and see how he measures up. Slott's
answers can be found at www.financial-
planning.com/pubs/fp/20030701026.html

IRA investors and those with $100,00 or more
in their retirement plan can contact Craig Johnson

Air Space Academy locates in Avon Park


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
July 16, 1964.
It is officially announced
today by Colonel S.H. DuPont
, Jr., Florida Wing Commander,
Civil Air Patrol, that National
Air Space Academy (NASA)
has taken possession of the
Pinecrest Lakes Club and Hotel
property four miles south of
Avon Park and six miles north
of Sebring.
National Air Space Academy
is a private, non-profit, second-
ary boarding school for boys,
grades seven through 12 and
post graduate status. It is antici-
pated that a junior college pro-
gram will be added to the
school after five years of opera-
tion.
NASA is an educational
institution which recognizes the
great need for the specialized
preparation of young men on
the secondary level for careers
of the Aero Space Age. National
Air Space Academy will offer
to a limited number of students
a curriculum similar in that one
offered by the United States Air
Force in their Preparatory
School in Colorado. NASA is
not sponsored by, nor is it offi-
cially connected in any way
with the United States Air
Force, but it is dedicated to spe-
cialized training in the funda-
mental sciences on the second-
ary level, that will enable its
graduates to more successfully
matriculate in the universities
and colleges that offer degrees
in aero space sciences, as well
as any engineering college or
service academy.


The proposed curriculum of
National Air Space Academy
will offer seven major subjects
per year plus physical educa-
tion. The courses which are
normally studied in high
schools will be offered and in
addition particular emphasis
will be placed on biology,
chemistry, physics, mathemat-
ics, reading and spelling.
NASA is unique as a private
boarding school in that its mili-
tary program is instituted and
supervised by the Civil Air
Patrol, which is an auxiliary of
the United States Air Force. The
Civil Air Patrol was established
in December of 1941 as a pri-
vate, non-profit corporation.
The Mission of the Civil Air
Patrol is "To provide an organi-
zation to encourage and aid
American citizens in the contri-
bution of their efforts, services
and resources in the develop-
ment of aviation and to the
maintenance of air supremacy
and to encourage and develop
by example the voluntary con-
tribution of private citizens to
the public welfare; To provide
Aviation Education and train-
ing, especially to its senior and
cadet members; To encourage
and foster civil aviation in local
communities and to provide an
organization of private citizens
with adequate facilities to assist
in meeting local and national
emergencies.
"The Civil Air Patrol was
established as a civilian auxil-
iary of the U.S. Air Force on
May 26, 1948, by an Act of
Congress. The public law and
its amendments, did not change
the character of the Civil Air
Patrol as a private corporation,
nor make it an agency of the
U.S. government, but gave the
Secretary of the Air Force cer-
tain authority to furnish assis-
tance to the Civil Air Patrol and
to accept and utilize the service


6


of the Civil Air Patrol in the ful-
fillment of the non-combatant
mission of the Air Force." .
The CAP program as it is
offered at present contains 168
hours of participation. The pro-
gram as it is to be offered at
National Air Space Academy
has been expanded to include a
more thorough study of each
area covered by the existing
program. At the conclusion of
the CAP course of study and
upon receipt of a Certificate of
Proficiency, the National Air
Space Academy cadet will
embark on an air science pro-
gram offered on the secondary
level but encompassing the
same material contained in the
college level program.
National Air Space Academy
came into reality very much as
the United States Air Force
Academy. Just as far seeing
leaders in the field of aviation
recognized the need for a sepa-
rate service academy to prepare
young men for leadership in the
Air Force, educators recognized
the void of a specialized institu-
tion of learning on the second-
ary level to direct its curriculum
that the results would be better
qualified candidates for the Air
Force Academy and other insti-
tutions of higher learning with a

program of studies similar to
those offered by the Air Force
Academy.
Mr. Jack Townsend Jr., Lake
Wales and Mr. S. Colquitt
Pardee, Avon Park, took the
proposal of such a preparatory
school under advisement and
when fully convinced of the
practicality of such an academy,
set the wheels in motion, Under
the guidance of these two men,
the committee was steered to
Mr. Victor McLain Day, who
interested Mr. Lawrence
Tanenbaum in the project.
Together, these four men, in
actuality, transformed National
Air Space Academy from a
dream into reality.
To use Avon Park Airport
facilities - The Civil Air Patrol
program is designed to promote
civil aviation and much consid-
eration was given to building a
landing strip on the property,
however, it was learned that the
traffic provided by those stu-
dents at NASA would make it
possible for the Avon Park
Airport to be resurfaced. As a
result, plans for building its
own strip have been abandoned
and NASA will conduct its fly-
ing program from the local air-
port facility.
The much publicized cham-
pionship golf course connected
with the property purchased by
NASA will continue to be
maintained in its present condi-
tion and announcements will be
made later as concerns its use
by the citizens of Highlands and
surrounding counties.


, National Air Space Academy
plans for a maximum enroll-
ment of 200 cadets and accord-
ing to the figures released by S.
Colquitt Pardee, NASA will
spend one half million dollars
in salaries, supplies and servic-
es per year. The bulk of this
money will be spent in
Highlands and surrounding
counties if competitive prices
make it possible.
Avon Park, Sebring and Lake
Wales should feel the impact of
the Academy almost immedi-
ately as a result of visits by
prospective patrons and cadets
to this area. NASA will official-
ly open for registration of
cadets on Sept. 20 of this year.
The Florida States
Department of Education
requires that a school be in
operation two full years before
it may be considered for accred-
itation.
A full year of instructional
activity is anticipated by the
Academy since it will operate
year round offering a full
.'emester of work in the summer
session.
The faculty and staff of the
Acadernm will number at least
19 member, this year. Many of
the faculty will live on campus,
but others will have homes in
Avon Park and Sebring.
Small classes are a feature of,
NASA. It is anticipated that no
more than 17 cadets will attend
any one class, with the excep-
tion of combined CAP, Air
Science and physical education
classes.
Because National Air Space
Academy has but one avowed
purpose for existence, the cur-
riculum has been standardized
in order to best accomplish its


goal. The curriculum is
designed with the thought in
mind that a cadet entering the
Academy in the ninth grade or
below will continue to matricu-
late at NASA through to gradu-
ation. The curriculum is flexible
enough to permit a cadet to
enter the Academy in any grade
and meet the minimum require-
ments for graduation as set up
by the Florida State Department
of Education.
NASA offers an accelerated
program of study making it pos-
sible for a cadet to complete
one and one half years of aca-
demic work in one calendar
year. The summer tri-mester is
naturally a more intensive peri-
od of study resulting from the
shortage of days in which to
conduct school. However, the
schedule of classes has been so
arranged to make it possible for
the cadet to complete 90 hours
of classroom work in each sub-
ject area.
As, a cadet becomes more
proficient in the subject area he
can attempt more advanced
subject matter. A cadet who has
matriculated at NASA for the
last four years of his secondary
education will have been study-
ing college level courses, credit
for which can be given by vali-
dation examinations in the col-
lege of his choice or may be
validated by College Board
Advanced Placement
Examinations. The proper
accomplishment of these cours-
es would permit the cadet to
broaden the field of study open
to him as well as to concentrate
in a given area of specialization
during his normal college train-
ing career.

HELP
Continued from 1A
Sherri said, "the disease disap-
pears as suddenly as it
appears."
Tauchen, unfortunately, has
been hit hard and has gone to
the next level.
Always ready
Sherri said, "We keep our
bags packed and ready to go all
the timee" This is because at the
first sign of any unusual pain
they have to rush out to the
Moffit Center to see Donald's
doctor, hematologist Dr.
Lubomir Sokol, to be sure that
there are no blood clots or other
new developments.
Tauchen has to have blood
testing done twice a week, and
the results dictate what they
can, can't, or must do. The dis-
ease attacks the patient's blood
cells during the night while they
sleep.
If his white counts are low he
is confined to the house because
he is too susceptible to other ill-
nesses; if his platelets are low
he will need to go in for a trans-
fusion (of which he's lost
count).
The Tauchens' attitudes have
been wonderful throughout this
whole process. They directly
attribute their high spirits to
their faith in God.
"The Lord sustains us and we
know that He will give us the
strength to get through it all day
by day," they both declared.
Loving family
His children describe their
father as an outstanding, hon-
est, hardworking man, who, as
son Frank said, "Always did
what he said, always has a joke
to tell, and is just a pleasure to
be around."
He elaborated, saying, "If
you were a stranger on the
street and met him, you'd feel
like you'd known him all your
life."
Frank also stated that his
father is a member of a "histor-
ical, second-generation family
of Highlands County who have
put a lot of work into the com-
munity; investing a lifetime of
work with cattle, land clearing,
anf - ecitrus industry on
Tauchen's Ranch in Sebring."
The Tauchen's three chil-
dren, Ashley Bennett, 21;
Renee Marcy, 27; and Frank,
25; have provided them with
three grandchildren (one from
each). They are 6 months, 8
months, and 1 1/2 years at pres-


POLICE
Continued from 1A
but wouldn't directly proposi-
tion them.
Eventually, he got nervous
and backed out of the deal, but
officers had enough evidence
for probable cause to search
him and the car. They found
crack cocaine and drug para-
phernalia.
He was charged with posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to
sell or deliver within 1,000 feet
of a convenience store and two
counts of possession of drug
paraphernalia.
About an hour later, howev-
er, police got one for soliciting:
Pasquel Artista, 29, who
allegedly offered $15 for the
two of them.
It's a sad problem, Gilliard
said, because hardworking
Mexican fruit pickers may only
be looking for recreational sex
or the thrill of sex in a foreign
country, but they may not real-
ize the danger of sexually
. transmitted diseases.
Artista had arrived prepared,
however. He had three con-
doms.


Lift station causing problems in town


ELAINE SEDLOCK/News-Sun
Donald and Sherri Tauchen read a verse from the Bible. During
these trying times, the Tauchens rely heavily on their faith.


ent. It is the hope of all of the
family that Donald find a com-
patible donor and receive the
gift of life so that he and his
wife will be able to enjoy their
grandchildren and watch them
grow.
Get screened
Because people often make
wrong assumptions about
donating blood, Spires and
Donald both emphasized that it
is important for people to
understand that even if they
think they may not be a good
candidate, they should call the
blood center to inquire or come
out to be tested just to see. The
only requirement to be screened
is that people be between the
ages of 18-60 years of age (or
17 with parental consent).
Bone marrow screening is
quite expensive, and there is a
fee to be tested as a donor but
that fee is waived if a person
either donates blood or brings a
buddy along to donate. The
process is relatively painless
and doesn't take long.
The beauty of the bone mar-
row drive for Tauchen is that
not only might a marrow match
for him or someone else turn
up, but it will also generate
more donations of blood -
something always in short
demand that anyone may need
at a moment's notice.
Also, even though Tauchen is
caucasian, people of other eth-
nic groups should not allow that
to discourage them from com-
ing to be screened. Not only
could .they be a match for
Tauchen, but there is an even
greater shortage of donors
amongst minority groups.
Money can buy a lot of
things, but it can't buy blood or
bone marrow. These things can
only be accessed through peo-
ple's willingness to literally


give of themselves.
David Rowland, 25, of
Orlando, participated in a bone
marrow drive at University of
Central Florida a few years ago
without expecting to be a match
for anyone. About six months
later he was surprised by a call
announcing that he may be a
match for someone. Since then
he has been a suitable ma4ch for
three different patients. He said
of the experience, "It was defi-
nitely worthwhile. Anyone who
could do it, I'd say, 'Go for it.'"
According to Rowland, "It was
an awesome experience and vir-
tually painless -- just a little
pain from a needle for most
people."
In terms of our local drive for
Donald Tauchen, Rowland
offered this encouragement to
residents, "For whatever little
bit of pain or inconvenience it
might be, people should just
think about what it could do for
the person on the other end. No
one ever knows when they may
be the one in need. It could be
me one day; and what would I
want people to do?"
Tauchen wanted to express
he and his wife's sentiments to
Highlands County saying, "We
just want to express our thanks
to this community for their
prayers and anything they want
to do. We love them and appre-
ciate their help."
The bone marrow/blood
drive for Donald Tauchen from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center.
The sponsors are Highlands
County Board of
Commissioners, Cohan Radio,

Center, Highlands County Coca
Cola, and Sebring High,

LAKE PLACID - Yet
another lift station is overflow-

Apparently, it's been a prob-

years, according to Mike Wood
of Quick Lube of Lake Placid.
The lift station is 30 yards
directly behind his shop at 824
U.S. 27 South.
Councilwoman Debra
Worley said sewage was spew-

afternoon, without the alarm
light flashing or audio alarm
sounding. The station belongs
to Highlands Utilities, Worley

had a problem with a lift station
upstream from Lake Saddle-

An assignment

This week the subject is
feet.
That meant I had to be on
my toes when I spent time
with Dr. Joni Jones at her
podiatry practice.
Now this was the kind of
assignment where I couldn't
do any actual work, a fact that
probably gave Jones' patients a
sense of relief.
I was able to shadow her,
however, and I learned a great
deal.
"Feet take a terrible beat-
ing," Jones said. "People do
things to their feet, they
wouldn't do to any other part
of their body."
Living in Florida creates
special challenges, she said.
Most people lose at least three ,
cups of liquid a day due to
perspiration. By wearing socks
and closed shoes, much of that
liquid constantly soaks the
feet, leading to fungus prob-
lems like athlete's foot.
Fungus, she said, is a part of
creation. But it grows where it
is dark and warm, like on a
foot inside a sock, inside a
shoe.
"The constant bumping of
the toes against the shoe caus-
es fungus to grow," she
explained.
"Fungus pushes the toenail
up, so it digs in to hang on."
She added that is one reason it
is so important to keep toenails
properly clipped.
She has her patJini.m with

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sunn
Dr. Joni Jones attends to the needs of a patient. Everyone should keep their toenails clipped, but for dia-
betics regular maintenance is especially important. That is because diabetics often lose sensation in their
feet. As a result they are especially vulnerable to injury and infection. The bones in the feet are so close
to the surface, skin infections can travel to them quickly, leading to serious health problems, she said.

Jones focuses



on heeling



medicine


.By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - In 1982 while
raising six children, Joni Jones
decided to go back to school to
become a doctor of podiatric
medicine.
She had begun her study at
Purdue University, and com-
pleted her bachelor of science
degree at Cleveland State. Then
she attended the Ohio College
of Podiatric Medicine, graduat-
ing in 1.987.
That study was followed by
two years of internship and res-
idency.
She arrived in Highlands
County in 1991, and began
making house calls, opening
her practice in 1992.
Her choice of a new career
had meant years of hard work,
because feet are amazingly
complex.
For example, each foot has
26 bones, which means that
both feet combined contain a
fourth of a body's bones. In
addition there are muscles,
nerves, ligaments and blood
vessels.
Feet often show warning
signs of serious conditions such
as arthritis, diabetes and heart
conditions.
For this. reason, becoming a
podiatrist requires specialized
study.
According to the Department
of Labor, every state requires a
license to practice, and continu-
,::,i' .


ing education for the license's
renewal. Most states also
require the completion of a one
year post graduate residency
program.
In order to qualify for admis-
sion to a college of podiatry, an
applicant must have completed
at least 90 hours of undergradu-
ate work. However, 90 percent
of all applicants have complet-
ed a bachelor of science degree.
All podiatry colleges require
eight semester hours each of
biology, inorganic chemistry,
organic chemistry and physics,
as well as six hours of English.
The science courses should
be those designed for pre-med
students.
The four-year program at
most colleges of podiatry offer
a core curriculum that is similar
to colleges of medicine. The
first two years are devoted to
classroom instruction including
anatomy, chemistry, pathology,
and pharmacology.
Third and fourth year stu-
dents have clinical rotations,
during which they learn how to
take general and podiatric his-
tories, perform examinations,
interpret tests and findings,
make diagnoses, and perform
therapeutic procedures.
Graduates receive the degree
of Doctor of Podiatric
Medicine.
There are a number of certi-
fying boards for podiatric spe-

SEBRING - Ted Hair and
Scott Pearce grew up in this
area and work together to pro-
vide durable storage facilities at
Highlands Sheds Inc.
Whether a person needs a
shed, carport or garage, they
offer Superior sheds which
come with floors; two-foot by
six-foot floor joists; and are
rated for 150 mph winds. They
range in size from six-foot by
eight-foot sheds, all the way up
to 20 feet by 36 feet.
"We usually carry 15-20 dis-
plays to choose from, but if we
have to order, it only takes four

ture of two quarts of warm
water mixed with two cups of
white vinegar.
Jones strongly recoinmends
wearing sandals whenever pos-
sible, but only those with prop-
er arch support, and a heel
strap.
She said people should
remove their shoes and socks
as soon as they get home, to
allow them to breathe and dry
out.
She also recommended hav-
ing at least three regular pairs
of shoes, and to wear them
alternately. This will allow the
moisture to evaporate com-
pletely. She said shoes should
be retired after six months of
wear.

Hair said.
With no rust, no need for
paint or other maintenance,
Superior brand sheds are
known for their strength, dura-
bility and cosmetics. They meet
the latest Florida building code.
These sheds are custom built
around a person's needs. A cus-
tomer is able to pick the size,
style, colors, window place-
ment, door size and vents.
"During last year's hurri-
canes, Superior was the only

Podiatrists treat corns, callus-
es, ingrown toenails, bunions,
heel spurs, arch problems,
ankle and foot injuries, defor-
mities, infections, and problems
associated with diseases, such as
diabetes.
They can prescribe drugs,
order therapy, set fractures, and
perform surgery.
According to the American
Podiatric Medical Association,
the median income for all podi-


said they are at particular risk
for foot problems.
That is because diabetes is a
small nerve disease. That .
means .that small nerves aren't
properly nourished by the
small veins, leading to nerve
apathy.
The result is many diabetics
lose sensation in their feet.
They can be unaware of seri-
ous problems developing.
For example, she saw one
patient, an elderly man whose
sight also was failing. A grand-
child had hidden a small toy in
the toe of his shoe. Because he
had no sensation in his feet, he
was unaware the toy had
caused a serious ulcer. By the
time the problem was discov-
ered, the damage was so severe
he had to have the foot ampu-
tated.
This is why Jones checks for
foot and leg circulation during
every patient's visit. It's espe-
cially important, she said,

"We do see a lot of diabetic
patients," she said. Which is
one reason she has become a
licensed dispenser of durable

mends shoes designed specifi-
cally for diabetics, as well as
customized inserts to help
properly distribute the body's

According to Jones, diabetic

Williams reaches Master Sales Professional status


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The prac-
tice of selling cars has evolved
a long way from years past.
Today's most successful sales
professionals are highly trained
product specialists, knowledge-
able about the myriad cars and
trucks that they sell.
Lorenzo Williams at Wells
Dodge Chrysler has been recog-
' nized as an exceptional sales
professional by achieving the
Master Sales Professional certi-
fication level from
DaimlerChrysler.
To earn this status, Williams
completed a minimum of 30
hours of intensive study,
achieved superior performance
by selling more than 100 vehi-
cles per year and received
exceptional feedback scores
from customers. In addition, a
Master Sales Professional has
to demonstrate extensive prod-
uct knowledge among a vast
portfolio of Chrysler, Jeep(r) or
Dodge products.
"All of the classes and train-
ing were well worth the time
and effort to receive the Master
Sales Professional certification
from DaimlerChrysler,"
Williams said. "I learned how
the act of selling a car goes
beyond the initial vehicle pur-
chase; cultivating a lasting rela-


tionship with the consumer is
the ultimate goal."
Car sales used to be about
just making the sale. Today's
consumers are much more
savvy and have reams of


detailed information about
prices, rebates and options and
know how to negotiate when
buying a vehicle. They have
many choices and high expecta-
tions.

Ballroom dancers perform Dec. 9


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Highlands
Social Dance Club of Sebring
will have Joe and Linda
Marturano dancing Friday, Dec.
9, at the Sebring Civic Center
next to the Highlands Little
Theatre.
The Marturanos started out
dancing the tango about six
years ago and quickly began to
learn all the ballroom dances to
be able to compete.
Since then, they've compet-
ed in numerous competitions,
dancing amateur and pro-am.
The competitions include
USABDA, now known as USA
Dance, local and major compe-
titions such as the Heritage


Millennium N.Y. Dancesport.
The Marturanos have won-
derful teachers, Bill and Sylvia
Hering, who always challenge
them to grow in their dancing.
They entered the Amateur
Couple Championship Nov. 17
for the third year at the Ohio
Star Ball, a major United States
competition.
Dancing together has
become a major part of their
lifestyle. The tango is still their
favorite dance and has evolved
into an exciting exhibition.
Looking forward to dancing
for folks of all ages, encourag-
ing and letting them know that
it's never too late to dance.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Thankfulness

leads to

contentment
Christmas was fast
approaching and we had
very little money. We longed
to please our three boys on
Christmas morning with
some surprises.
Anticipating the expected
gift exchange with extended
family, we toyed with fore-
going it so Ken and I would
be able to gift each other.
But after some soul search-
ing, we put aside our selfish-
ness and opted to give to
others.
With some thoughtful
planning, we came up with
an idea. Instead of giving
individual gifts to extended
family members, we'd give
a family gift designed to
please the whole family. It
became a fun family project
and we creatively achieved
our goal while staying with-
in a limited budget.
We saw it as love plan-
ning a surprise. We hoped
that our family's expecta-
tions Wouldn't diminish the
motivation behind the gift. I
watched carefully for their
responses, hoping they'd be
pleased. My concern was
unfounded and they enjoyed
our gifts to them.
But, I suppose we all
know of times when we
have either given or
received gifts in which the
recipient or we didn't show
the appreciation the giver
deserved. Rather, our
response was colored by dis-
appointment, wounding the
giver's heart.
Expectations sometimes
get in the way of recei\ ing a
- gift in the spirit in which it's
been given. Before we know
it, entitlement replaces grati-
tude, The gift loses its
meaning. Unfortunately, the
best thing love has come up
with isn't quite enough.
But, if we practice thank-
fulness in our attitudes, it
leads to a contented heart.
Then no matter what comes
our way, we're appreciative.
I can't help but wonder
how our heavenly Father
feels when he lovingly plans
good gifts for us. When love
plans a gift, it eagerly antici-
pates the response. How
often do our expectations
get in the way of receiving
that which God has lovingly
planned for us?
Before Jesus invited the*
weary to come to him so
that they might find rest for
their souls, he had just fin-
ished praying and praising
the Father for revealing truth
to little children even when
it was hidden from the wise
and educated. Then he said,
"Yes, Father, for this Was
your good pleasure."
(Matthew 11: 26, NIV)
In Jesus response, we see
a model for appreciation of
the Father's loving plans. In
his gracious acceptance,
contentment follows; Then
he freely invites burdened
souls to know that same rest
and contentment in him.
Imagine how.we wound
God's heart with ungrateful
disappointment and expecta-
tions, He must long for us to
abide in him and be pleased
with his will and his pres-
ence.
"But godliness with con-
tentment is great gain." (I
Timothy 6: 6, NIV)
Let it begin with thanks-
giving. Selah.

Kiker designs


Power Wires to cut


back on fuel costs


'By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
H arvey Kiker may be a
tree surgeon, but he
and his wife, Pat, are
nuts about cars and
ha'e found a. way to save.gas,
They own 12 and especially
like old muscle cars. They
have a few each of Mustangs,
Trans Ams, Firebirds, Camaro
Z-28s, a Barracuda and a kit
Roadster. While Harvey
restored them, he focused on
their performance. But he pon-
dered over their extravagant
consumption of gas. And over
the past four years, he created
and developed a combustion-
enhancing device called the
Power Wire. It not only
improved performance, but on
various cars improved gas
mileage dramatically. On their
'79 Camaro, which used to get
14 miles per gallon, now gets
23 mpg on the highway. And
,strangely, there's something
,Harvey cannot explain: it also
enhances the reception on the
car radio.
The Power Wires, which
replace the conventional spark


plug wires, have except ionally
low resistance and a booster
which adds power. Thus more
of the fuel is burned in the
cylinder before it escapes -
causing less waste and more
power. Tests have shov. n it
reduces eneinj w ibration. ....
increases horsepower and
torque, and improves gas
mileage'.
Pat is a rural mail earner.
with frequent stops.
"Generally cars only last
two to four years at this kind of
work. They're just used up
because of the start and stop
abuse," Pat said.
Her four-cylinder 200-4
Nissan Frontier was one \ ear
old with 3,000 miles on it. and
getting 10 mpg. Now it has
14,300 miles, and gets 15 mpg.
After. adding the Power Wires,
she saw an immediate
improvement.
So did Diane Richardson,
another mail carrier who lives
in Wauchula.
"I have a '96 Grand
Cherokee Laredo. Two years -
ago we installed the Power
Wire. That car had 158,000
miles on it at the time and only


Harvey Kiker installs a Power Wire on a riding lawn mower.

got 15 mpg. It took a while
apparently to clean the carbon
deposits, and it's continually
improved the mileage up to 19
mpg on the mail route. On the
open road, I get 30-31 mpg,
and now have 212,000 miles
on it," Richardson said.
"I also haul horses around
and I used to drive from station
to station for fill ups. I use an
'86 Silverado Chevrolet one-
ton, with a 454 cubic-inch
engine for that.-I.used to get 6
mpg and now get 10-12," Pat
said.
Most people don't realize
that 25-50 percent of gas is lost
out the tailpipe, said Harvey.
The Power Wire creates dra-
matic results. It can be easily
placed on a lawn mower or
chain saw - any small engine
device you use around the
house - with the same bene-
fits of increased power and
lower gas consumption. Cars
can minimally increase 2-5
mpg.
George Parsons, the bus
driver for First Baptist Church
of Leisure Lakes recently had
its 66-passenger bus converted.
"It's an '86 Ford chassis
with a 370 four-barrel. It was
getting 4.8 mpg this July when
we installed the Power Wires.
Now it gets 12.02 mpg - even
with all the starts and stops.,
Not only that, but sometimes I
have to back up two blocks, or
stop and wait 5-10 minutes,"'
Parsons said.
At 55 mph the bus used to
run 4,700 rpm. As soon as the
Power Wires were installed, it
ran at 4300 rpm. Now when
driving at 55 mph, it registers
4,100 rpm. Parson feels it's
obvious the engine is not


working as hard, there's no
carbon or sludge buildup and
that the horsepower is
increased.
His brothers are-master
mechanics and are excited to
obtain dealerships. His son,
Brian, lives in Atlanta and
works as an airframe and
power plant mechanic for Delta
Airlines. After putting the
Power Wires on his '96 Ford
V-8 (camper style) he's getting
160 more miles on each tank of
gas. Now his crew at Delta is
interested and wanting to do
some tests.
"I do know that our mission
of getting people to church as a
result of using this bus was
challenged when prices rose to
$3 a gallon," Parsons said.
Harvey recommends getting
a tune up with a new air filter,
an oil change, and especially
using Autolite copper core
spark plugs which he said
work best with the Power
Wires, so everything is work-
ing at maximum efficiency.
This also will make your
engine last longer because pis-
tons and valves won't carbon
up. It cleans the engine for
longer wear. It lowers the revo-
lutions per minute and runs
quieter, smoother, has more
power, and lowers emissions.
"Over the past four years,
we constantly improved upon
and used only the best of
everything to produce these
Power Wires.. I have them in
stock for old cars with big
engines, but the new cars must
be custom made to fit.
Generally the price is $28 per
Power Wire for a car. For $47,
there's an easy, self-install
snap-on Power Wire that works


equally well on dirt bikes, lawn
mowers or weed eaters, chain
saws, or boats. When electri-
cians test them they see that
they produce no ohms (resist-
ance), unlike other wires on the
market.
"My dad's a mechanic and
worked on engines. I picked up
from him and I like to tinker.
Nothing I've found is as effec-
tive as the Power Wire. I
prayed for the knowledge to
make this work," Harvey said.
With the price of gas today
and the projections for even
higher prices, depending on
how you use your car and the
mileage you put on it, an aver-
age family may be able to get
the investment back within a
few months. On older cars,
trucks, dirt bikes, all-terrain
vehicles, boats, lawn mowers,
and weed eaters, these are easy
to self install. On newer cars, a
mechanic is recommended and
the cost could run $200-$400
depending on difficulty to add
the Power Wires.
* Harvey's not resting while
trying to sell the Power Wire
patent to a major manufacturer.
He has more automotive
patents pending, and is looking
for a buyer for his tree service.
He also wants to train a
mechanic that he can recom-
mend to install the Power
Wires.

the Power Wires, call Pat or

DIVERSIONS



Today's society lacks formality in language


Question: What does behav-
ioral research tell us about the
best way to raise children?
Have scientific studies spelled
out what works and what does-
n't, especially regarding how to
discipline properly?
Dr. Dobson: My answer may
sound like heresy coming from
a man who spent 10 years of his
life as a professor of pediatrics,
responsible for medical and
behavioral research, but I don't
believe the scientific communi-
ty is capable of determining the
best parenting techniques.
There have been some worth-
while studies, to be sure, but the
subject of discipline almost
defies definitive investigation.
Why? Because the only way
to study this topic scientifically
would be to place newborns
randomly in "permissive" vs.
"disciplined" families, and then
keep them under close observa-
tion for 10 or 15 years. Since it
is impossible to' do that,
researchers have tried to tease
out information where they
could find it. But family rela-
tionships are so multidimen-
sional and complicated that
they almost defy rigorous
scrutiny.
Indeed, most of the studies
reported in the literature are sci-
entifically useless. For exam-
ple, Dr. David Larson, psychia-
trist and formerly a researcher
at the National Institutes of


Health, reviewed 132
articles in profes-
sional journals that
purported to investi-
gate the long-term n-
consequences of cor-
poral punishment.
He. found most Of
them flawed in
design. Ninety per-
cent of the studies FO
failed to distinguish ON
between good homes
where spanking was FA
administered by lov-
ing parents, and Dr.,
those bordering on Do
(or actually inflict-
ing) child abuse. This
distinction is critical for obvi-
ous reasons.
Dr. Larson concluded that the
findings were invalidated by
this failure to consider the over-
all health of family relation-
ships. To repeat, the conse-
quences of various approaches
to parental discipline appear to
be beyond the reach of social
research. It is simply not possi-
ble to study this complex sub-
ject scientifically without warp-
ing families to set up the
research design. Even if such
studies were conducted, the
researchers would be studying
contrived families -- not typical
parent-child relationships.
Question: It seems to me
that children are far too familiar


ICUS
THE
IMILY

James
bson
i


- too informal -
with adults today.
When I was a kid, we
always addressed
grown-ups by "Mr"
or "Mrs", or if they
were in the family, we
called them "uncle"
or "aunt," or
"Grandpa" or
"Grandma." We
would never have
referred to an adult as
Sam or Alice. But
today's parents don't
teach that courtesy to
their children. Some
of them introduce 4-
year-olds to adults by


their.first names. Am I the only
one who is concerned about
this? What can I do to counter-
act this trend with my own son
and daughter?
Dr. Dobson: I've been both-
ered by that same observation.
It's a byproduct of a cultural
shift within society itself. We
are less respectful of one anoth-
er today in many ways. Fifty
years ago, for example, men
didn't curse around women and
cultured women didn't curse at
all. How that has changed! Both
men and women used to
address each other with formal
titles (Mr, Mrs, Miss, etc.)
unless they had become very
close friends. Now, a waitress
whom you've never met
approaches your table and says,


"Hi, I'm Stephanie and I'm
going to be serving you today."
I don't suppose today's infor-
mality is harmful, although I
agree that children should be
taught to speak to their elders
with a certain deference. I still
like to hear them respond with
"Yes ma'am" and "No, sir,"
instead of "yeah," "yep," and
"nope." When their manners are
respectful, their entire
demeanor is on a higher plane.

As for how you can instill
these and other courtesies in
your child, you simply make up
your mind to do it. You might
explain that there are many
things your family does differ-
ently than others: For example,
"We don't use bad language, we
don't attend certain kinds of
movies, and we don't (fill in the
blank.) Why? Because we've
set a higher standard for our-
selves. This is what makes us
unique as a family. Someday
you will understand that, too.

Mother must decide to help herself


Dear Abby:
I am a teenage girl with an
obese mother. She doesn't exer-
cise much. She started going to
the gym about a month ago, but
since has stopped. She's what
you'd call a habitual snacker.
At night she'll finish eating
one unhealthy food and then
begin eating another. She often
eats more than 1,500 calories in
one of her nightly "snacks."
To make matters worse, she
eats in front of the TV and
makes me fetch her food rather
- than walking to the kitchen her-
self. When I try to talk to her
about her bad habits, she gets
defensive and angry. I want her
to lose weight and am willing to
help her. How can I confront
my mom about her problem?
Hungry for help
in Norfolk
Dear Hungry:


You are a caring
and concerned
daughter, and for that
you deserve to be
praised. However, nd
one can "help" your
mother until- she's
willing to admit she
has a problem.
The behavior you
described isn't
"evening. snacking";
it's bringing. Until
she's ready to con-


DEAR

Jeanne


-front what is eating
her, she will not stop
trying to fill the emptiness
inside with food.
Rather than confronting your
mother yourself, enlist the help
of a close friend or family
member. If your mother agrees,
her next step should be to check
the phone book for the listing of
the nearest chapter of


S Overeaters
Anonymous. They
charge no dues or
fees, and no member-
ship lists are kept.
- " There is no shaming,
no weighing in and
no embarrassment.
The only requirement
for membership is a
ABBY desire to stop eating
compulsively.
Phillips When your mother
attends a meeting,.
she'll be welcomed'
with open arms into a,
fellowship of compassionate
women and men who all share
her problem.
There are more than 8,000
Overeaters Anonymous groups
worldwide and chapters in
almost every city. However, if
your mother has difficulty
locating one, help her by visit-


ing www.overeatersanony-
mous.org or sending a long,
self-addressed, stamped enve-
lope to OA World Service
Office, P.O. Box 44020, Rio
Rancho, NM 87174-4020.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail

Jeanne Phillips, and was found-
ed by her mother, Pauline

New citrus disease found in United States


One of the worst problems in
citrus trees is citrus greening -
a bacterial disease that has no
cure. It grows in the tissue of
citrus plants and eventually
causes the tree to die. It is
spread by a sap-sucking insect.
This plant illness could
endanger Florida's $9 billion
citrus industry and has been
found for the first time in the
United States.
Citrus greening is a bacterial
disease that is spread by insects
and kills trees after it ruins fruit.
It joins canker as a dire threat to
the citrus industry.
Until now, citrus greening
had been found mostly in Asia
and Africa, never in the United
States. There are two varieties -
heat-resistant Asian and heat-
sensitive African. The Florida
infections are the Asian variety.
What will be done remains
uncertain.
"We are assessing the situa-
tion to determine exactly what
course of action will be taken,"


said Charles
Bronson, Florida's
agriculture commis-
sioner. "We will pro-
vide the citrus indus-
try and public with
information as soon
as it becomes avail-
able."
The state faces a
number of unknowns
with this bacterial
disease:
A The bacteria
can remain dormant
for at least four to
five months.
* There is no field

SEAS

Garden


test for citrus greening and no
one knows how many trees in
South Florida might have latent
disease.
* Only two insects - nei-
ther native to the United States
- are known to carry the bac-
teria from tree to tree. But
Florida insects might be able to
spread it. No one knows.
Control options are few


beyond destruction of
;.:. the trees. Antibiotics
would work but can-
not be used because
of cost and risk to the
environment. Weak
i solutions containing
A. mineral oil can be
" sprayed, but might
damage uninfected
ING trees.
ON Citrus greening
seems misnamed, since
infected trees turn yel-
2nds low as if suffering neg-
MIaster lect. There is massive
rners leaf drop and the fruit
- often becomes mis-
shapen and produces juice that
tastes terrible.
Early symptoms are a leaf
yellowing that may appear on a
single shoot or branch. In early
stages of infection, leaves may
have a mottled or blotchy
appearance.
The yellowing spreads
throughout the tree and affected
trees show twig dieback and


trees rapidly degenerate into a
non-productive state in two to
three years. In trees with
advanced stages of the disease,
the leaves are small and fre-
quently show mineral (zinc or
manganese) deficiency symp-
toms with yellow veining. Fruit
are sparse, small, abnormal in
appearance and fail to color
properly, thus the name green-
ing.
The affected fruit often con-
tain aborted seeds and have
poor juice quality.
Because there is no cure,
trees found to have been infect-
ed will be destroyed as federal
and state scientists determine
how far citrus greening has
spread. But the disease is not
airborne, so finding and killing
carrier insects is critical.

Anna R. Coley is a Master
Gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.


SFCC hosts art sale


South Florida Community
College student artists will
show and sell their artwork
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the
Art Fair on Dec. 1, 7, and 8,
in the Student Services
Center (Building B), SFCC
Highlands Campus, Avon
Park.
The Art Fair is sponsored
by the SFCC Art Club, a
-member of the SFCC Student
Government Association. It
will feature student pottery,
drawings, and paintings to be
sold for $3-20.
Three prints by local pro-
fessional artists - Jaiet
King, Alice Hansen, and
Cathy Futral - will be raf-
fled. Raffle tickets will be $1
for one and $5 for six.
According to Futral, Art
Club advisor and SFCC pro-
fessor, the sale allows the stu-
dents to raise money for a trip
to New York City over spring


break.
"This is the third group of
Art Club students who have
traveled together to view the
Museum of Modern Art, the
Metropolitan, and profession-
al galleries in New York,"
Futral said.
"It's important for them to
go out of Highlands County
and experience various cul-
tural opportunities. It opens
their minds to the history of
art through the ancient works
that they view, as well as
through contemporary
expressions in art. And they
get a chance to see the art that
they studied in art history
classes."
For more information
about the student Art Fair,
contact Futral at ext. 7195 at
453-6661, 465-5300, 773-
2252, or 494-7500.

Leo: The world is yours for the taking


Aries (March 21 - April 20)
- It's time to put your money
where your mouth is. You've
been such a big talker for the
past few days, but now it's time
to ante up.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21)
- Let your heart sit in the dri-
ver's seat this week, Taurus,
and it will take you on a wild
ride. The more conspicuous you
are, the less likely you'll get
what you're after.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21)
- Stay focused this week, as
you have a big project ahead of
you. Your approach this week
will appeal to those who know
where you're coming from.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23)
- There's a lot to be said for
being relaxed and easygoing,
but right now you'd prefer it if
things were more exciting.
Even if you end up dancing
alone, you keep the beat better
than usual.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) -
The world is yours for the tak-
ing, but it would be nice if you

asked first. There's a hard way
and an easy way- make it as
painless as possible.Pisces can
offer advice.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23)
- The work week ends on a
slightly crazy note, which sets
you apart from all of your
friends and coworkers who are
ready to party. Just be careful
that you don't miss something
important.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)
- There's no need to hide your
unique qualities. This is a time
to celebrate your individuality.
The sooner you learn to accept
the powers you possess, the
sooner you can move on.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
- Your fuse is much shorter
than you'd like right now. No
one is intentionally trying to
anger you. Take as many deep
breaths as you need in order to


calm yourself down.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec.
21) - The chains that have
been holding you back are
about to give. If you struggle
hard enough, you will finally be
able to break away. Take a close
friend along for support. Cancer
is a good choice.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan.
20) - It's in your best interest
to keep everything low-key
right now, Capricorn.
Discretion or even secrecy is
required. Others are more likely
to forgive a white lie after the
fact.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb.
19) - You're especially good
at guessing games today, but
there may be an unexpected
twist. Don't be surprised if
you're put in charge of making
the plans for this weekend.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20)
- All the excitement has worn
you out more than you care to
admit. Hide your head in the
sand until you're ready for the
next round. It is closer than you
think.

Understanding the brown pelican


When I hear the word "peli-
can" I immediately think of a
large and somewhat awkward-
looking bird with their famous-
ly large bill and pouch that can
hold as much as three gallons of
water.
The one in my mind is also
standing on a dock near a fish-
erman waiting for scraps from
the day's catch. I am aware that
an article about pelicans in
Highlands County seems a little
strange. However, the brown
pelican is a very unique bird
and its story is an interesting
one.
If you visit Florida's coast
today, you will more than likely
encounter a brown pelican. This
has not always been the case.
Population declines led to the
listing of the brown pelican as
an endangered species under
the Endangered Species Act of
1973. Several factors con-
tributed to their population


declines.
Brown pelicans
were hunted in the
late 1800s and early
1900s for their feath-
ers. During the food
shortages following
World War I, fisher-
men blamed pelicans
for decimating the
commercial fishery
resource and slaugh-
tered them by the
thousands. The nests
were also raided for
eggs.
Widespread use of
pesticides in the


NEWS

TH

WATER

Jennifer


1940s also had negative effects
on the brown pelican popula-
tion due to lack of breeding
success.
The pesticide DDT caused
the birds to lay eggs with shells
so thin they broke during incu-
bation.
Actions were taken through-


FROM


out all of the events
to try to curb the
decline of the brown
pelican. In 1903,
President Theodore
Roosevelt designated
Florida's Pelican
Island as the first
national wildlife
refuge, which helped
to reduce the threat


IE of plume hunters.
RSHED Passage of the
Migratory Bird

'Donze Treaty' act in 1918
- gave protection to
pelicans and other
birds and helped to
curb illegal killing. Studies
showing the pelicans were not
harming commercial fisheries
helped to stop fishermen from
killing pelicans. The brown pel-
ican was listed as an endan-
gered species, meaning it was
considered in danger of extinc-
tion through all or a significant


portion of its range.
In addition- to these actions,
the Environmental Protection
Agency banned the use of DDT
in the United States and placed
heavy restrictions on the use of
other pesticides. Since then
there has been a decrease in the
level of chemical contaminants
in pelican eggs and a correspon-
ding increase in nesting suc-
cess. The brown pelican was the
first species to so recover from
the effects of pesticides.
Information in this article
was taken from a 1995 brochure
from the U.S. Department of
the Interior and U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service. Free copies
are available at the office.

Reliving life on historic Peavine


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Florida's
rich pioneer spirit comes alive
when the South Florida
Community College Museum
of -Florida Art and Culture
(MOFAC) hosts a series of pro-
grams in conjunction with its
exhibit, "Catfish, Moonshine,
and Cattle on. the Peavine:
Surviving on Florida's Last
Frontier."
The opening reception will
be 6:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday
Dec. 3, and the exhibit runs
through Jan. 28. It is free, open
to the public, and sponsored by
the Florida Humanities
Council.
* The work of pioneer families
from the Lake Okeechobee area
and along the Peavine Trail will
be depicted through photo-
graphs, original art, demonstra-
tions, and video. Three panel
discussions focus on their
importance, to Florida's history
and economy.
Some of these pioneer fami-
lies made and continue to make
their living from catfishing in
Florida's Big Lake Region, the
area surrounding Lake
Okeechobee. Other Florida pio-
neers drove cattle or made


moonshine to keep food on the
table. They lived along the
Peavine, a trail that ran from
present day Kissimmee, south
to the shipping docks in Punta
Rassa.
According to Jim Fitch, proj-
ect director emeritus, MOFAC,
the exhibit is about "resource-
ful, determined people who,
confronted with a rapidly
changing environment, made a
conscious decision to remain
free of the encumbrances of
modern society. They chose to
follow their hearts. Our story
provides an opportunity to meet
these folks, understand them
better, and perhaps reflect on
choices we have made in our
own lives."
The panel discussion and
demonstration schedule is as
follows:
Saturday, Dec. 10, 2:30-5
p.m. - "Catfish: Folkways and
Traditions" - Leo and Judy
Gillis will discuss their lives as
catfishermen, and Judge
William Hendry will talk about
working in an Okeechobee fish
house as young man. A catfish
fry and tasting will be held out-
side SFCC MOFAC prior to the
discussion.

In the 1930s, Beedie Mae married homesteader, Edgar Thomas.
They settled on a piece of land along the Peavine Trail and built
their dream house (right). Early settlers on the Peavine were, for the
most part, not cattle ranchers but homesteaders who supplemented
- their income by working as cowhands.

As Florida's cattle trade grew, the Peavine Trail became more like a
cattle highway. Florida was still wild and lacked roads and fences.
Only a seasoned cowhand could navigate the wilderness and drive
the cattle to the coast. Bill Roberts (left) was one of those men.


Friday, Jan. 1 2:30-2 p.m.
- "Catfish and Cattle: History
and the' Environment" -
Moderated by Dr. James M.
Denham of Florida Southern
College, the panel discussion
includes Audrey Vickers, jour-
nalist; Dr. Hilary Swain,
Archbold Biological Station;
and Iris Wall, cattlewoman. The
discussion and a light luncheon
will be at SFCC University
Center.
Friday, Jan. 20, 7:30-9 p.m.
- "Moonshine" - Moderated
by Dr. Kristin Congdon of the
University of Central Florida,
the panel discussion includes
Robert Skipper, storyteller;
Michael Barkley-Damboise,
cowboy poet; and Johanne
Lauchman, Henscratch Farms,
Vineyar d Winery. The dis-
cussion and a wine tasting will
be held at the Hotel Jacaranda.
MOFAC provides an exhibi-
tion venue for contemporary
Florida Regionalists and pre-
serves Florida's history and her-
itage through its art.
The museum also serves as a
repository for the discoveries
unearthed by members of the
Kissimmee Valley
Archaeological and Historical
Conservancy.
MOFAC is adjacent to the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus, 600 W. College Drive.
It is open to the public October
through April, Wednesday,


Thursday, and Friday, 12:30-
4:30 p.m., and by appointment.

panel discussions, contact

Mystery box



found in a tree


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK - An odd lit-
tle box, looking somewhat like
a milk carton, was found dan-
gling from a tree last weekend
in Jonathan Simandl's grandfa-
ther's front yard.
Jonathan found the box an
intriguing mystery and took it
to Avon Park High School.
There teachers and students
played detective, using infor-
mation printed on the sides to
research what it was.
It turned out to be a weather
data gathering device called a
radiosonde.
A radiosonde is an upper air
probe, used to collect data for
weather forecasting. It is a stur-
dy box, made of cardboard or
plastic, that houses basic instru-
ments capable of measuring air
temperature, humidity, and
barometric pressure.
Their invention dates back to
1930, and they were first used
by the U.S. Weather Bureau in
1936.
Each radiosonde is equipped
with a thermistor, a hygristor,
and an aneroid barometer, in
addition to a miniature trans-
mitter. Current models work
with satellites to transmit data.
The instrument package is
attached to a balloon and para-
chute. The balloon in typically
filled with helium to a size of
about six feet in diameter.
As the balloon rises, typical-
ly to about 25 miles, it expands
to 24 or 34 feet in diameter, at
which point it bursts. The para-
chute is used to see it safely
back to the ground.
- A. the balloon ascends, the
radiosonde provides an indirect
measure of wind speed and
direction at various levels in
the troposphere.
There are approximately 70
radiosonde weather stations
throughout the continental
United States. Radiosondes are
launched from them twice a
day; just after midnight and at
noon.
Jim Turba, of the Vaisala
Company, which made the
radiosonde that was recovered,
said it was probably used by a
university or private meteorol-
ogy club. It is unlikely that that
particular radiosonde was used
to track Hurricane Wilma, as a
different, larger instrument
package is used for that work
he said.

Information for this article was
taken from an article by
Edward J. Hopkins, which can
be found at www.aos.wisc.edu.

Bride charged

with child

molestation

leaves jail
Associated Press
GAINESVILLE, Ga. - The
37-year-old woman charged
with child molestation after
marrying her son's 15-year-old
friend was released from jail
Friday.
Lisa Lynette Clark left the
Hall County Jail and walked
across the street to post the
$10,000 bond.
In a voice barely audible, she
told reporters she could not talk
about the case. Clark, who says
she is pregnant with the boy's
baby, also would not say who
was signing the bond for her.
"They should have told more
of the truth," she told Atlanta's
WSB-TV without elaborating.
Conditions of her release
stipulate that she can have no
contact with her 15-year-old
husband.
Attorneys for news organiza-
tions are asking a judge to
make legal proceedings against
the boy open to the public.
The couple was wed under a
Georgia law that allows a preg-
nant couple to marry regardless
of age and without consent.


This is the radiosonde box that
was found after Hurricane
Wilma in late October, dangling
from a tree. The box is designed
to transmit data from the tro-
poshere to researchers below.
This box wasn't used to collect
data during the hurricane, the
manufacturer said. Radiosondes
used for that are bigger. This
device was probably launched
by a university or meteorologi-
cal club. Radiosondes used to be
recycled, now they are dispos-
able.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



A few thoughts for the day


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Other viewpoints

Congress finally has started to ask some questions
about the Defense Department's prime vendor buying
program - and it doesn't like the first answers it is hear-
ing. To be a guardian of the taxpayers' dollars, it needs to
ask more questions, including whether we even need this
program anymore.
The prime vendor program was designed, in essence,
to provide one-stop shopping for Defense needs. The
idea was to contract for suppliers to be ready to supply a
huge array of items, which the suppliers themselves get
from manufacturers. It was supposed to be more efficient
and to save money.
But that's not what it seems to do. ... Some examples:
Ice trays cost $20, while they were available for 85 cents
elsewhere; coffee filters cost $43 under prime vendor,
$11 elsewhere. A competing supplier says the value of
the primevendor program is "zero," while its defenders
argue that the arrangement's efficiencies save the gov-
ernment money....
The prime vendor program has its supporters, in and
outside of the Pentagon. But serious questions have been
raised, and it is the Defense Department's responsibility
to answer them more completely than it has to date.
Congress needs to make sure that prime vendor is serv-
ing our military properly - and determine whether we
still need the program at all.

An editorial excerpt from The State, Columbia, S.C.

It's two years too late and a lot more risky, but wider
acceptance of former Iraqi officers into its new army
makes sense - if American commanders take the right
precautions.
Iraq's call for junior officers from the army of Saddam
Hussein to sign up to defend the new state could help
bring Sunnis a bigger stake in the government and keep
trained soldiers out of the insurgency's ranks. Iraq will
have to guard against infiltration of its military by fight-
ers who already gave their hearts to fight America, but
overall this move is overdue.
By banning in 2003 former officers and former
Baathists in a new Iraq, the United States fed that insur-
gency with recruits and hatred. Iraq's recent reversal of
that American decree may win back some of those sol-
diers, employ others who simply have been trying to find
work and recruit already-experienced men to help speed
the training and increase the competence of Iraqi forces,
especially in armor and artillery.
For those beyond just needing a job, it may be the real-
ization that building a new state able to defend itself is
the quickest way to end a foreign troop presence. For
Sunnis, who dominated under Saddam, it's a way to
increase a presence in that government - which, if
democracy is to grow, must eventually accept secular
Baathists, anyway.
The danger of infiltration is real, though, and simply
limiting the call to former officers under the rank of
major isn't an ironclad protection. The battle is still for
hearts and minds, not territory - and the insurgency has
already won some of those battles. The United States
could have limited those victories by carefully screening
and accepting former soldiers into the new military much
earlier. That it did not, except on a limited scale, is anoth-
er example of the lack of careful post-war planning. The
price to be paid is in the need for extra vigilance - but
in the end, there are potential gains.

An editorial excerpt from The Buffalo (N.Y) News.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has finally
demonstrated what a little roll-up-your-sleeves diploma-
cy can achieve in the Middle East. Tuesday's agreement
between Israel and the Palestinians on opening the bor-
ders of the Gaza Strip and allowing freer movement of
Palestinians between the West Bank and Gaza reflects
Rice's involvement in advancing the peace process ....
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's government
removed settlers and troops from Gaza in August and
September after nearly four decades of occupation. But if
Palestinians cannot move people and goods from the nar-
row, seaside strip, the territory will remain an economic
sinkhole.
The agreement calls for opening the border with Egypt
on Nov. 25. European monitors will supervise border
operations, with Israel receiving closed-circuit TV trans-
missions of the crossings. That is important for Israel's
security, allowing it to guard against the entrance of ter-
rorists and weapons. The deal also will allow
Palestinians to travel between the West Bank and Gaza in
bus convoys starting in December. Travel between the
two territories is needed for a viable Palestinian state,
which all sides say is the goal.
The agreement should pay dividends for Palestinian
Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who is being chal-
lenged by Hamas, the combination political party and
terrorist organization, in January parliamentary elections.
Abbas needs to ensure that terrorists do not attack
Israelis. Such attacks could lead Sharon to postpone
implementation of the agreement. If all goes as planned,
Abbas will be able to demonstrate concrete progress to
Palestinian voters and hold out the hope of more gains....
The Bush administration criticized President Clinton
for being overly involved in the Middle East peace
process, then went too far in the other direction. The
administration's success Tuesday should show the presi-
dent the importance of diplomacy and top-level involve-


meant in issues of great importance to this country. Rice
already understands. .

Editor:

the rest of those gangsters u]
there on Capitol Hill for thei
betrayal of the American peo
ple.
Politicians who are bouglh
off by the big corporations t
look the other way, while the'
continue this rape of the peo
ple.
Politicians for getting u
involved in these no-win war
so that the arms manufacturer
can rake in billions of dollars i
profits.
Oil companies for pric
gouging, to increase their bil
lions of dollars in corporate
profits, credit card companies
for charging unreasonable
interest rates, isn't that als
price gouging?
Tax breaks and government
subsidies for the wealthy, cul
ting Medicare, Medicaid an
veterans benefits, to pay fc
wars and Pork scams, to stuff
their own pockets and ge
themselves re-elected.
This will show these gang
sters that the American people
are fed up with their graft an

e County was 20 cents more than
I- Polk County (same gas tax),
e she said, "We are entitled to
,s make a profit!"

stated he did it because he

t- Maybe the oil companies
d charge high prices because they
>r can!
ff Most everyone must com-
it mute; carpooling helps but only
if schedules are compatible.
g- Most people do not live within
e. walking distance of their job,
d school, shopping, church,

,r Is public transportation a
g viable solution? (Maybe, if it
could be a flexible schedule).
Is there collusion in the oil
industry to set artificially high
prices to improve their own
profit? Witness extremely high
profits reported; how much
5r goes unreported?
ot Will investigation into this
h situation bring any solution to
light or will the finding be
le buried to protect all parties?

'Idol' judges

were unbiased
Editor:
I am writing in response to
Jan Epley's letter regarding the
outcome of Heartland Idol and
the decision of the judges.
As anyone will tell you, no
matter what the outcome with
any event or competition -
some will be upset and others
will be thrilled! That is a fact of
life. Unfortunately, only one
person "wins" - so to speak.
The Heartland Idol competi-
tion is absolutely no different.
It is a huge accomplishment for
these talented souls to get up
there and sing, not to mention
to make it to the finals and all
of them are well-deserved of
the title and should feel like
they have "won" in their own
right, regardless of the position
they placed.
Ms. Epley is absolutely right
in two regards. One being
Tiffany Elliot was terrific! The
problem is, so were many of
the other finalists. Let's not
cheat Dustin McCranie of his
incredible talent in the process,
not to mention the other con-
tenders for their outstanding
vocal ability as well.
The other regard is the sound
system, which was not wonder-
ful; however, much of that was
due to some simulcast difficul-
ties. However, if Ms. Epley and
others are discouraged by the
sound and feel a new one
should be in place, I am sure
the committee would be more
than happy to take any dona-
tions.
Ms. Epley also asked what
the judges were watching.
Well, I can tell you. It was a
singing competition where not

only enormous talent was dis-
played, but also genres that
spanned decades, from oldies
to country to modern Christian
music. It is extremely difficult
to judge a contest with so much
diversity at play and so much
talent.
Ms. Epley's letter also sug-
gested only having, "nonbi-
ased, experienced judges who
know what they are judging on
and maybe give the audience
some of the decision." Well, for
the record, there were a couple
judges who were experienced
vocalists who knew how to
judge on "technical merit."
Also, for the record, there were
judges who were extremely
unbiased without any knowl-
edge of the contestants or their
past performances.
To level out the playing
field, the rest of the judges had
done this before, maybe knew
the contestants style and had
certainly heard them sing at
prior shows. So, with that said,
I think the judges were a great
mix from the start!
Who wants all professionals
judging? I don't care how high
the "technical merit" from
qualified judges would be, if
the public doesn't like what
they hear, then what good is it?
They are the ones who sched-
ule performances and buy the
music, so having all profession-
al judges would defeat the pur-
pose of incorporating a public's
perspective.
The contest was extremely
close in votes if you recall. The
judges listened to each per-
formance, tallied their votes
accordingly, and the numbers
were what weighed in. The
judges didn't sit down and pick
a winner at random or by popu-
larity - they voted by cate-
gories so not all judges voted


the same. and some judges may
have scored one contestant
much higher than another -
that is what makes it fair to all.
Just because Ms. Epley's
choice did not win does not
mean the choice of the person
sitting five seats over didn't, so
please don't dismiss the judges
as being biased and inexperi-
enced. Some were very experi-
enced, all were unbiased and
others fully represented the
"'voice of the people." The
problem is the "voice of the
people" depends on to whom
you are speaking.

Sound system

was really bad
Editor:
First of all, I am very upset
that the News-Sun (being a
sponsor) had no coverage of
the "Heartland Idol" competi-
tion ... except for a letter to you
about the judging and really
bad sound system (or sound
person?!)
Several contestants had to
try and start over again and
some were successful and some
weren't. Some even had their
music started in the wrong key.
The awful sound system made
it even harder to listen to at
times and it wasn't fair for the
performers.
I agree also with the letter
about the order of the top five.
Dustin was definitely the
best but Stacy and Tiffany cer-
tainly should have been second
and third. Next year will surely
be better. The weather was per-
fect and the disc jockey was
wonderful.

Reno's record

on obscenity
Editor:
In her letter of Nov. 4, Willie
Clyde Cloud rips into the
record of Bill Clinton and Janet
Reno in combating obscenity.
We are told that Clinton
appointed "Janet Reno, U.S.
Attorney General, who imme-
diately began dismantling the
Justice Department's efforts to
prosecute the producers and
distributors of obscenity."
Further, "Reno's associates
even tried to weaken the Justice
Department regarding prosecu-
tion of child pornography."
Cloud gives the Rev. James
Dobson's Focus on the Family.
as a source for such claims. In
colonial times, newspapers
often carried the slogan,
"Important, if true." Press
releases on the Web site of the
FBI and the Justice Department
shed considerable light on the
battle against obscenity, sexual
exploitation and child pornog-
raphy.
In a 1999 announcement,
Deputy Attorney General Eric
Holder said, "The FBI, alone,
has opened more than 4,000
child sexual exploitation and
pornography cases since
Operation Innocent Images was
established in 1995."
In 1998, "the FBI open
almost 1,500 new cases. And
Justice Department prosecution
of these types of cases have
increased 10 percent each year
since 1995."
The Innocent Images pro-
gram resulted in moe than a
hundred convictions in 1998.
An international sting opera-
tion, Operation Cathedral,
resulted in 22 people being
prosecuted in the United States.
In May 1993, a 10-year-old


boy from Brentwood, Md. FBI
agents found two suspects who
had sexually exploited juve-
niles for 25 years. The suspects
were transmitting pornography
online. Because of this case the
Innocent Images National
Initiative started in 1995. The
Innocent Images program
focuses on:
* Producers of child
pornography
* Major distributors of child
pornography
* Internet Web sites that
post child pornography
Deputy AG Holder said that
the number of Internet Crimes
Against Children (ICAC) Task
Forces is being increased from
10 to 20. By 2003, 28 of the 56
FBI field offices had Innocent
Images operations. All of the
FBI's offices have worked on
these investigations.
A Justice Department press
release dated Dec. 12, 2003,
says that since Innocent Images
started in 1995, more ,than
10,000 cases have been opened
and there have been nearly
3,000 convictions. The same
release, during the Bush
Administration, says "The
Innocent Images National
Initiative has been highly suc-
cessful."
Three suspects identified by
Innocent Images have made it
on to the FBI's Ten Most
Wanted List. The first of these,
Eric Franklin Rosser, a child
predator, was placed on the list
in 2000, during the Clintons'
tenure. He was apprehended in
Thailand. Richard Steve
Goldberg was president of a
Long Beach, Calif., gun club.
He made it to the Ten Most
Wanted List in 2002, wanted
for six counts of lewd acts with
a child and two counts of child
pornography.
On Aug. 5, 1999, President
Clinton signed an executive,
order creating a Working
Group On Unlawful Conduct


On The Internet. The Working
Group was chaired by Attorney
General Janet Reno. The order
contains the Clinton quote: "We
must give consumers the same
protection in our virtual mall
they now get at the shopping
mall."
Clinton's order states that
computer generated images are
to be considered pornographic
depictions.
The same order mentions
Operation Cheshire Cat, a joint
operation with the British,
which located 100 members of
a pedophile ring that operated
in 21 countries. In 1.999, inter-
national agencies provided the
Federal Trade Commission
with information pertaining to
preventing online consumers
from being bombarded with
unwanted porn.
The Executive Order says
that Innocent Images has
brought about 358 convictions
by December 1999. In addition,
child pornography investiga-
tions by the Customs Service
brought about another 436 con-
victions. The Postal Inspection


Service is also involved in com-
bating child pornography. The
Justice Department has a Child
Exploitation and Obscenity
Section, CEOS and Clinton
also appointed a Commission
on Online Child Protection.
Janet Reno has commented
on the threat of encryption tech-
nology. Encryption could make
it possible for law enforcement
to find out what predators or
pornographers have on their
computers. For the same rea-
son, law enforcement could not
identify or rescue children
being abused in this way. Reno
said this in testimony before the
House Intelligence Committee
on July 14, 1999. She outlined a
strategy to insure that law
enforcement will always be
able to get the key to any com-
mercially available encryption
code.
Society's response to child
predators and obscenity is far
too important to turn it into a
partisan dogfight. Rather, let us
build on past victories.

FDA doesn't link Tamiflu



to 12 deaths in Japan


By ANDREW BRIDGES
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Federal
drug regulators said Friday
there was insufficient evidence
to tie the flu drug Tamiflu to the
deaths of 12 Japanese children
or to hallucinations, encephali-
tis and other symptoms suffered
by some Japanese patients.
Food and Drug
Administration staff said they
don't think it's necessary to
update the drug's labeling to
reflect those deaths or possible
adverse effects. But the staff is
recommending adding informa-
tion to the label about serious
skin reactions to Tamiflu.
Unlike other ailments report-
ed in patients who took
Tamiflu, 'the skin reactions


don't appear to be related to the
influenza the patients were
being treated for, officials said
in papers prepared for a meet-
ing Friday by an FDA advisory
committee.
"Clearly, any time you get a
report of a death or a serious
occurrence, you want to look
into it," said Dr. Murray
Lumpkin, deputy commissioner
of the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, said prior to the
meeting.
The reports are being dis-
cussed as part of the annual
pediatric safety review of
Tamiflu and seven other drugs.
The Japanese deaths were
detailed in papers released
before Fridj. 's meeting. There.
are no reports of deaths ini the


United States or Europe associ-
ated with Tamiflu.
The FDA sought and
received more information
from the Swiss pharmaceutical
company Roche Holding AG,
which makes Tamiflu, and from
health authorities in Japan,
.where use of Tamiflu is more
common than in the United
States.
The FDA has not yet issued
any warnings or initiated any
other action, spokeswoman
Susan Bro said.
"Based on the information
we have right now, we cannot
say definitively there is a causal
relation between the drug, and,
the children's death," Lumpkin
said.

press led the Avon Park
Lady Red Devils to an 85-
24 blowout of Mulberry in
the season opener. Nirva

16 points apiece

AVON PARK - With one Shantavia

Lady Red Devils.
In their first game without junior start-

was lost for the season with a torn ACL in

both lur%.ard Shjinij.j. Conner and
Tacora Jones. one o1" ihe pla ieli taking
over the point guard spot from Conner, to,
key a 49-36 win over Mulberry Friday
night.
Avon Park coach Christie Hipps said
the Devils will have to get used to not hav-
ing Conner on the court.
Avon Park "She drives in there and
49 makes that defense collapse
and creates some open
Mulberry plays. We need to work
S. more, on getting open and
36^ take the shots we need.
"It's rough, but we can
deal with it," Hipps said of Conner's
injury. "We just have to adjust."
It took the Devils a little while to make
that adjustment, falling behind 18-11 early
in the second quarter before the second of
Jones' trio of 3-pointers in the first half
jump-started the offense.
Jones hit another trey and Sims' layup
with 1:43 on the clock gave the Devils the
lead for good at 22-20.
"Shantavia Sims has stepped up big,"
Hipps said. "I need some inside people, so
she's got to put those layups in there."

RULES
Continued from 1D
the ongoing negotiations
between NASCAR and its tele-
vision partners.
NASCAR's current TV con-
tracts expire at the end of the
2006 season, and it has been in
negotiations with several net-
works on a new deal. The net-
works in negotiations, particu-
larly ESPN, have indicated a
desire for increased on-track
activity that could be broadcast.
"In the overall scheme of
things, it didn't fit the way we
thought it would right now,"
Helton said. "We just wanted to
back off that and take a look at
it from a different angle. We
just haven't found the right bal-
ance yet."
Getting comfortable
Veteran driver Kenny
Wallace replaced reigning
Nextel Cup champion Kurt
Busch in the No. 97 Ford last
week on short notice. Wallace
finished 16th in place of Busch,
who was suspended by Roush
Racing for the final two races of
the season after a run-in with
Phoenix police two nights
before the race.
Now, with a full week of
preparation, Wallace expects
better results.
"My goal is a- top 10,"
Wallace said. "I'm not trying to
sit on the pole and bite off too
much. I don't have that much
pressure on myself. What I
want to do is have a good show-
ing and run real competitive,
but a top 10 is my goal."
Wallace, a younger brother of
longtime NASCAR star Rusty
Wallace, has 309 Cup starts
with 27 top 10s, the last one at
Bristol in 2003 while driving
for Bill Davis Racing.
More driver moves
Ken Schrader will replace
retiring driver Ricky Rudd in
the Wood Brothers' No. 21 Ford
next season.
Schrader, 50, spent the last
three years driving the No. 49
Dodge for BAM Racing.

Lewd rap song

features several

Hurricanes
Associated Press
MIAMI - A sexually
explicit rap song performed by
a group including several cur-
rent and former Miami
Hurricanes football players is
demeaning, athletic director"
Paul Dee said after the tune
surfaced on the Internet.
The nine-minute song,
which describes lewd sexual
acts and denigrates women,
was recorded two years ago by
a group calling itself The
Seventh Floor Crew - a refer-
ence to a student resident hall.
Hurricanes coach Larry
Coker confirmed that several
players were part of the group,
but he declined further com-
ment.
"The content of the record-
ing is unfortunate, inappropri-
ate and demeaning," Dee said
in a statement. "The university
and the athletic department dis-
approve of the content and its
references.
"To those who may hear this
material, we apologize. Any
students whose voices can be
identified will be subject to
appropriate discipline and-or
counseling."
Dee said the matter will be
handled in internally. He said
the performance should be kept
in perspective as one that took
place in private and wasn't
intended for public distribu-
tion.
The song surfaced on a stu-
dent's blog Tuesday.
Coincidentally, that same day
Coker spoke of how Miami's
image as an outlaw program
has improved since he arrived
as offensive coordinator in
1995. He became head coach in


2001.
"A perception here maybe
before was, 'Yeah, Miami wins
a lot of games, but my son's not
going there,"' Coker said.
"That's not the perception any-
more. Now it's, 'They win a lot
of games, and I want my son to
be part of that."'

son," Schrader said. "However,
when the opportunity to drive
for the Wood Brothers present-
ed itself, it made my decision to
continue driving in the Nextel
Cup Series very easy."
BAM Racing replaced
Schrader with rookie Brent
Sherman, who has no Nextel
Cup experience.
"He has shown a lot of talent
and a great deal of potential,
and we think he has a bright
future ahead of him in
NASCAR Nextel Cup racing,"
car owner Beth Ann
Morgenthau said. "We're happy
that future will begin next sea-
son with BAM Racing."
Sherman finished second to
Frank Kimmel for the 2004
ARCA championship. This sea-
so'n, the 31-year-old Sherman
competed in 26 NASCAR
Busch Series events with a pair
of different teams and one top
10 finish.
No Intrepid
Don't call the No. 12 Dodge
that Ryan Newman is driving
this weekend an Intrepid, even
though its a year-old body style.
The templates for the old cars
are good through the end of
2006.
"It's a Dodge," said Don
Miller, president of Penske
Racing South. "Dodge isn't
making Intrepids any more."
This year's NASCAR Dodge
is the Charger, but Newman and
Evernham Motorsports driver
Kasey Kahne both are driving
the year-old models in Sunday's
season-ending Ford 400 Nextel
Cup race.
"We've had trouble all year
long with our (new) Dodges on
the mile and a half tracks like
Homestead," Miller explained.
"They are real pitch sensitive at
certain speeds in certain cir-
cumstances.
"When you go to pass some-
one, dart under them, it's liable
to go anywhere. We tried the
2004 and it doesn't do any of
those things."
Miller said he hopes the
problem can be solved over the
winter.
"We're trying to resubmit a
nose for 2006 and NASCAR's

Wood also said he thought

Wednesday, between 10 a.m.
and 2 p.m. I thought most
thieves committed their skull-

darkness, so the timing of this
larceny is puzzling to me.
A dynamite catch
I am not making this up!
Daniel Smith was fishing in
Lake Osborne when he pulled
in a catch that brought out the
local bomb squad. It was an
18-inch long, silver-green
thing.
"I thought it was some type
of torpedo," Smith said.
Sheriff's deputies decided it
was an M81 rocket-propelled
grenade. That's a military pro-
jectile often used against tanks.
The bomb squad confiscated
the device and, under the
watchful eyes of several law-
enforcement officials, they
placed it in a bomb-proof con-
tainer. X-rays showed the thing
was empty, much to the relief
of all involved.
So, if any of you fellows
want a real bang-up day of
fishing, try a day on the lake
with Danny.
A slam-dunk
From his deck, Bill Driver
spotted a red ball floating in
Sandalwood Lake near
Wichita, Kan. Getting a closer
view from his dock, he could
see it was a huge catfish that
had a basketball lodged in its
mouth. When the catfish tried
to submerge, the ball would

Sebring, which beat Lake

Sebring's full-court press and

in the second half, evidenced by

ing McGriff's seven points.

cause it to float back to the
top.
While Bill's wife watched
with a camera in hand, Bill
waded in to bring the catfish to
shore. As soon as he would get
close, the fish would go under,
but soon pop back up.
Grabbing the ball, he attempt-
ed to pull it from the fish's
mouth.
After several attempts at this
failed, Bill used a knife to
puncture the ball. The ball
deflated and Bill was left with
the now-useless basketball as
the catfish let go and slowly
swam away. It just shows, that
catfish will eat just about any-
thing they can get their ugly
jaws around.
They don't bother to say
"thank you," either.
Piscatorial roadkill?
While traveling along the
Missouri River, a school bus
driver on his way to school
was startled when an object
splattered across his wind-
shield. The driver couldn't tell
by the mess it made just what
kind of critter it was. Thinking
it was a bird, he continued on.
When he arrived at the
school and checked on his
windshield, he found it was a
large fish. Knowing that fish
don't ordinarily inhabit con-
crete roadways, he assumed
that an eagle or an osprey had
dropped its intended meal.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2005
Part of a series on what's hot this gift-giving season






KidI's stuff
By. SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
K ids are gamers, too, for better or worse, and there's nothing like high-
tech gadgetry to make their eyes pop and their jaws drop when the
wrapping paper comes off. Fortunately, there's some dedicated "tyke
tech" that can covertly educate kids while entertaining them, fulfilling your w
parental duties and your kids' electronic fantasies at the same time.


VSmile TV Learning System
From: VTech
System Price: $60
Games: $20 each
Continuing a long history of creating
cool kids' gadgetry VTech's latest tyke-
minded toy is the VSmile TV Learning
System. VSmile is a self-contained, bright ',
and bulbous cartridge-based machine
with a tethered controller featuring a
jumbo joystick, four big, colorful buttons
and a fifth gargantuan "go" button that
are all bash-proof with an entire, decisive
palm.
There are currently a couple dozen car- ' &
tridges available for VSmile, which are
not so much "games" as they are intelli-
gently designed, multicurricular "learn-
ing adventures" that have players master-
ing the alphabet or math or other cogni-
tive functions rather than some giant fire-
spewing robot at the end'of it all.
These "Smartridges" all have an instant
familiarity too, with things like the "Care Bears," "Barney" and "Winnie the
Pooh" for ages 3 to 5; "Scooby Doo," "Dora" and "Sesame Street" for ages 4 to
6; and "Batman," "Spider-Man" and "SpongeBob" games for age 6 to 8.
More info at www.vtechkids.com


V.Smile Pocket
From: VTech
System price: $90
Games: $20 each
Using the same game
"Smartridges" as the VSmile TV
Learning System, the VSmile Pocket
scales down the bulbousness of the
TV-based system and makes it battery
operated and portable (ironically, it's
too big for a pocket, but the inference
is fair). And though it features its own.
4-inch color LCD screen in the center,
surrounded by accessible thumb-sized


buttons and a thumbstick, the
VSmile Pocket will also jack into a
TV set at home for big, comfy couch-
based edutainment, effectively mak-
ing it two systems in one.
Mind you, it goes through batteries
like there's no tomorrow (recharge-
able Ni-MHs are highly recommend-
ed) but you can also get a home
and/or car AC adapter for it (for an
extra $10 or $15), so it's pretty much
go-anywhere gaming that manages to
teach tykes a thing or three in the
process of going anywhere.

"Ditti & Ditto," "Creatures" Games
From: Kutoka Interactive
For: PC and Mac
Price: $24 each
Perhaps your kids' game system of
choice is the household Windows PC
(or Mac), though finding decent,
recent kids' games for it can be a
chore. Look no further than Kutoka
Interactive, a Montreal-based develop-
er/publisher dedicated to the under-10
demographic, distinguished by the
fact that, in its 10-year history, the
company has never made a bad game.
Not a one.
Kutoka's latest crop of titles is no
exception, with the likes of "Ditti &
Ditto: The Wolf King" offering 1st-
grade level edutainment with truly
engaging gameplay wrapped in rich,
kid-friendly graphics. "Ditti & Ditto"
proves that "challenging" and "frus-
trating" are not the same thing, and


Leapster L-Max Learning Game
System
From: LeapFrog
System price: $100
Games: $30 each
The latest and greatest of
LeapFrog's stalwart learning systems,
the Leapster L-Max may cost a little
more, but it trumps the VTech VSmile
by offering the similar, cartridge-
based learning games that can like-
wise jack into a TV when one is near-
by and play on its own LCD screen
when one is not. It has big, fat, thumb-
mash-friendly buttons, but it also
incorporates a stylus and touch-sensi-


that exploring mathematics, problem
solving, literacy, creativity and sci-
ence skills can be fun.
Meanwhile, Kutoka's new
"Creatures" franchise offers much
more elaborate, but likewise educa-
tional gameplay in the "virtual pet
simulator" format.
Available as "Creatures: Village"
(for ages 5 and up) and "Creatures:
Exodus" (ages 8 and up), players get
down and interactive with cuddly lit-
tle things called Norns, rearing them
from hatchlings, feeding and caring
for them, teaching them morality
exploring their huge, beautiful envi-
ronments while also getting comfort-
able with the concepts of genetics,
biology, the ecosystem, cause-and-
effect and similarly scientific notions

tive screen, like a low-rent PDA.
This means kids will not only
learn the alphabet (among many
other age-appropriate things), but
actually learn to print right there on
the machine (and on the TV screen, if
connected). Its edutainment titles for
various age categories run a similar
gambit, too, from "Dora" to "Spider-
Man" as well as LeapFrog's own lik-
able mascots, Leap, Lily and Tad.
, Mind you, not everyone takes a
shining to the touch-sensitive activi-
ties and may just prefer the button-
based ones while usmg the built-um
sftylis cordas a haul around hnrdle,
which will make you cringe.

TV Games
From: Jakks Pacific
System price: $20
Games: Built in
If you're frugal or if a game
system is not high on your gift
list, there's always TV Games
from Jakks Pacific. TV Games
are basically joysticks or
gamepads that run off four AA
batteries and jack right into a
TV set.
With a handful of games
built right in, each device has
an outer chassis matching a
specific theme, as does the
game content housed therein,
like Disney or "SpongeBob,"
"Spider-Man" or "Pac-Man."
Mind you, there's nothing edu-
cational about these games;
they're all cheap knock-offs of
retro re-hashes of generic plat-
form, puzzle and sports games
with about as much pizzazz as a
$0.99 cellphone game.
They'll probably end up in a
box in the attic by New Year's,
but hey you can't beat the price.
More info at
www.jakkstvgames.com


Plus, it's a battery hog, and you'll
need to buy its rechargeable battery
pack and charging station separately
for an additional $35 if you expect any
longevity out of it. Still, kids that like
Leapster L-Max love it, so it's a good
investment.
