Roland Dilley



out of business


Citrus nursery, employees

hit hard by canker find
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK First it was the citrus nursery. Then the bud-
wood.
' 'When Roland Dilley discovered canker in his citrus nursery, he
hoped he could hold onto trees he had in his greenhouses.
They'll have to go, too.
"It's a horrible situation," he said. "It's the first time in 76 years
and eight and a half months that I'm going home without a pay-
check."
Three canker-infected trees -
'It's the first one on the west side and two on
the north condemned the
time in 76 years whole nursery, including the
greenhouses, the workers and
and eight and a Dilley himself.
Last week, Dilley said he is

burn 18 acres of grove and 1.8

ROLAND DILLEY, nursery owner workers, his family and Dilley
himself will be out of a job. He
has gotten no help from
Washington, D.C., or Tallahassee for the loss. He can't buy any
land without assistance or a regular income. He owes $1 million to
the bank.
Dilley said nurseries and groves used to be family businesses, all
in-house operations.
"The woods (were) full of them," he said.
His still was a family business, employing his son and daughter-
in-law and as many as 50 employees, all regarded as family.
Today, the cost of doing business between benefits, vehicles,
gasoline and insurance has gotten mind-boggling, he said. It's
next to impossible to start from scratch.
The worst news is that the canker that condemned his nursery
came from the Ben Hill Griffin grove to the north of his operation,
and may have been there a year before it was discovered.
Dilley & Son Nursery Inc. off State Road 64 in Avon Park, grew
nearly one third of the citrus industry's nursery trees each year. So
many citrus groves have lost trees to hurricanes Charley, Frances
and Jeanne last year, and to hurricanes Katrina and Wilma this
year.

No stranger to adversity


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK- "He has
achieved success who has lived
well, laughed often, and loved
much."
This famous quote by Bessie
Anderson Stanley describes
perfectly Roland Dilley who
has certainly achieved success
-living his life to its fullest.
Born and raised in Avon
Park and a member of one of
Avon Park's historical families
(his grandparents settled here
in 1905), Dilley has done all of
these things over the course of
his 76 years of life.
He has "loved much" his
wife Mary, of 52 years; his
children; Nancy Bradley, Jim
Dilley, and Fran Phillips; his
11 grandchildren, extended
family, friends, and this com-
munity, which he has con-
tributed to in so many ways.
Being a witty man with a
great sense of humor, he has
"laughed often," bringing joy
and laughter to others who


have had the good fortune of
knowing him. Phillips said of
her dad, "He could always
make you laugh. He would say
the funniest things; we'd just
be rolling."
He has "lived well," provid-
ing for four generations of
Dilleys through his hard and
committed work in the citrus
industry during the past 20
years as owner of Roland
Dilley & Son Inc., which he
started with his son and busi-
ness partner, Jim, back in
1985.
' His thriving business provid-
ed not only for his family, but
also for as many as 60 employ-
ees throughout the year.
Things weren't always easy,
but Dilley's determination and
"sticktuitiveness" made it
work. Under their skillfulness
and commitment, Roland and
Jim's nursery expanded,
becoming one of the most pro-
ductive in the state of Florida.
When it was hit hard last year


by hurricane Jeanne the dam-
age was devastating. Roland,
however, didn't let that get him
down. Instead, he accepted it,
counted his losses, and forged
ahead, rebuilding and making
repairs. Finally, a full year
later, business was almost back
on course and things were
looking up.
Then the nightmare began.
Canker was found during an
inspection and the Dilleys were
given an "immediate and final"
order that everything had to be
destroyed. Nothing could be
harvested, sold or salvaged.
Now his property, which used
to be full of beautiful green cit-
rus trees loaded with fruit,
close to 1,000 young trees
growing strong (which were
ready to go), and seedlings
sprouting, is now riothing but
barren wasteland.
This wasn't the first time
Dilley lost everything to
canker. Back in 1984 canker

Customers buy



more, fight less


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Retailers
across Highlands County
reported decreases during day-
after-Thanksgiving shopping,
but that's a good thing.
"They're very friendly this
year," Stacy Holley, a manager
at the Lake Placid CVS, said.
"Last year was bad news. They
felt like it was a competition to
come in here and shop. They
were coming in (last year) and
demanding things."
Natalie Murray, a manager at
the Beall's Outlet in Avon Park,
echoed a similar experience.
"Everyone's been better than
usual," she said.
While overall antagonism
decreased, the managers report-
ed increases over last year's
sales.
"It's been a lovely day," said
Kathy Rimer, owner of Iris and
Butterfly.
Shoppers at her shop on The
Circle were given coins to feed
into her slot machine, which
produced a variety of discounts.
"My first four customers of
the day got 50-percent off,"
Rimer said. "For the slots, it's
been a good day."
Rimer said her gift shop car-
ries "everything we can think
of," specializing in feminine
products.
At Wal-Mart, assistant man-
ager Bonnie Worley said the
store's "blitz" item a
Hewlett-Packard Laptop com-
puter on sale at $378 (marked
down from about $700) sold
out in six minutes flat.
"Some people were upset
because we only had 40 of the
laptops," Worley said, noting


that that's all the manufacturer
authorized per store. "There
were people who had been
waiting in line since 2 a.m."
With its doors open 24 hours,
the super center's customers
waited inside, near their target-
ed departments until the sales
went in effect at 5 a.m. Friday.
At Kmart, however, which
didn't open its doors until 6
a.m. (most chain stores reached
by the News-Sun opened two
hours earlier than normal)
almost 200 people lined up out-
side, assistant manager Marsha
Newbuld said.
"It was a good kickoff for the
holiday season," she said,
explaining that the managers on
duty since 5 a.m. had gone
home by 4 p.m. "Sales were up,
but I don't know what the num-
bers are."
Newbuld said her store did
experience some problems with
shoppers.
"We didn't have any fights,"
she said. "But I heard that Wal-
Mart did. Here, it was just push,
push, push, but nobody was
hurt."
(Wal-Mart reported no sig-
nificant incidents during the
sales rush, when asked.)
Like their competition,
Newbuld said her store sold a
lot of electronics, with DVD
players leading. She said they
also sold out on some luggage
and gold items.
CVS and Beall's Outlet did-
n't see significant crowds until
around 9 a.m.
"I think most people went to
Wal-Mart and the mall then hit
the smaller stores," Murray
said.

Garage door kills child


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A 4-year-
old Arcadia boy died Thursday
when a broken overhead garage
door slammed down on him,
officials said.
Lt. John Chess, of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office's Criminal
Investigations Division, said
the incident occurred around 1
p.m. on Serenade Drive, where
the boy was visiting relatives
for Thanksgiving.
"It's a terrible accident,"
Chess said, explaining that
while the investigation contin-
ues, he doesn't expect criminal
charges to follow.
The garage door already was
in disrepair when the accident
happened.
The cables on either side of
the door that raise it were bro-
ken, Chess said. The door was
propped open on some kind of
brace.
"There were some kids play-
ing in the garage when the child
bumped the brace and the door
struck the child," Chess said.


The boy died around 4 p.m.
at a Fort Myers hospital, where
he was flown with upper torso
injuries. Chess couldn't con-
firm if the boy sustained a head
trauma.
Chess said a 12-year-old boy
witnessed the incident but he
was unclear whether there were
other witnesses. He didn't
know how many adults where
at the residence.
Nick Wunderlich, of
Highlands County Garage
Doors in Lake Placid, said such
a fix would likely cost less than
$50 $40 for the service call
plus 80 cents per foot of
cabling.


A door seven-feet tall would
require eight feet of cabling per
side.
"The cables bring the doors
up and keep them in balance,"
Wunderlich said. "If one cable
breaks, the door will come up
cockeyed."
He said cables are replaced in
pairs because if one goes, the
other soon will follow suit.
"That's unbelievable,"
Wunderlich said, when he
learned of the boy's death.
Chess said investigators will
conduct follow up interviews to
corroborate what they've been
told and are waiting for the
medical examiner's report.

LOCAL DEALERSHIP COMBINES


SALES & CELEBRATION IN DECEMBER


EXTENDED HOURS
HELP TIME CRUNCH

AVON PARK The
Christmas season is always a
hectic time as people try to fit
extra shopping, parties, school
performances, and church Advent
services into the first three weeks
of December. Often people get tired
and frustrated, patience dissipate,
and family relationships get the
"short end of the stick." Wells Dodge
Chrysler in Avon Park is providing
a service to help alleviate the stress
in getting everything done.
Every Thursday night in
December, beginning on December
first, they are hosting an event from
noon to nine at night. Beginning
with extravagant end-of-the-year
clearance prices on every new and
pre-owned vehicle, the weekly event
includes Santa Claus for the kids, a
Christmas concert each week, the
reading of the Christmas story from
the Bible plus valuable give-a-ways
and holiday refreshments.
Christmas Traditions
Added To Buying Experience
From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. each
Thursday afternoon, Santa Claus
will be in the showroom to listen to
kids requests while mom and dad
have an opportunity to look for a
new car or truck. Arrangements are
being made to have Santa's helper
present on December 8 and 15 to
give rides, not in Santa's sleigh, but
in a unique Model T buckboard.
Kids and parents alike will love it.
Each week at 7 p.m., a local choir
or ensemble will present a holiday
concert. Leading off the month is
the Avon Park Middle School choir
presenting a thirty-minute concert
on December first. Every Thursday
evening will host another group
singing songs of the season.
Not to forget the true meaning
of Christmas, there will be a reading
of the story of the birth of Jesus
Christ each week at 8 p.m. During
this hectic time of year it is good
to be reminded of "peace on earth
and good will toward men." That
peace is only possible as The Savior
becomes one's personal Savior and
this is a wonderful time to take a
moment and hear the Good News
once again.
Once again the showroom
will feature it's award-winning
decorations with a forest of trees
creating an ambience of Christmas
Warmth. Cider and homemade
Christmas treats will be available
every Thursday afternoon and
evening as well.
Every Thursday there will be
registration for two Tampa Bay
Bucs tickets for the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers vs. the Atlanta Falcons
game on December 24th. What an
exciting way to kick off the holiday.
The drawing will be on Thursday
evening, December 22nd and the
winner need not be present.
Wells Dodge Chrysler is also
the receiving location for the annual
Stuff the Bus program in Highlands
County. Bring a new unwrapped
toy for this worthy cause. Toys will
be received throughout the month
of December.
Year-End Clearance
Prices On All New And
Pre-owned Vehicles
Besides the extended hours for
convenient shopping and all of the
Christmas traditions every Thursday


they have pre-owned vehicles starting
at $2495. You can always buy with
confidence at Wells because every pre-
owned vehicle has been checked on
Carfax.

two years plus an extended warranty
of 5 years or 60,000 miles. Every new
vehicle buyer gets to take advantage
'of either plan. Also for a limited time,
qualified buyers may delay payments
until May 2006.
For the NASCAR fan, a limited


number of racing shirts and
toys will be on sale throughout
the month for those special
people on your Christmas list.
Thursday from noon to
nine, Wells Dodge Chrysler
is the place to be this holiday
season.

Hands-on and relevant, career and technical education gains respect


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING It was 9 a.m.
on a recent Saturday morning.
Patricia Hollenberg, the family
and consumer science teacher at
Sebring High School, was in
her classroom with a handful of
her students.
They were practicing for a
culinary competition, to be held
in Orlando the Monday of
spring break.
The room bustled with activ-
ity.
While two parents rushed off
to Publix to find the fillet
mignon steaks needed for the
entree, students set up work sta-
tions, and organized their sup-
plies; then knife blades flashed
as students pared, sliced and
diced.
In other words, it was anoth-
er typical day in the world of
career and technical education.
Whether chopping vegeta-
bles, building chairs, drafting
floor plans, or learning double
entry bookkeeping, students of
Highlands County are benefit-
ing from the 'school district's
commitment to increase practi-
cal education.
One example of that focus
occurred recently when 35
teachers from seven different
schools brought school board
members up to date on current
programs during a workshop
held for that purpose.
All three high schools offer


r k.k ..7 S;s- .-' .
CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
James Collins, a Sebring High School junior, prepares for his assign-
ment in the culinary contest creating an edible centerpiece.


courses in basic and advanced
business technology, basic and
advanced agriculture, parenting
skills and child development,
nutrition and food preparation,
and seven levels of construction
technology.
Sebring and Avon Park high
schools offer courses in auto-
motive services, air-condition-
ing and refrigeration and Web
design.
Sebring and Lake Placid high
schools offer courses in draft-
ing.
In addition, South Florida
Community College offers sev-
eral dual enrollment opportuni-
ties to all three high schools,
and some in basic and advanced
electricity to Sebring and Avon
Park students.


Lake Placid High School has
three unique opportunities: a
student run bank, a student
business that manufactures and
markets Adirondak chairs, and
an aerospace program.
The teachers at the workshop
explained how their programs
were designed to create post
secondary school opportunities,
while creating life long learn-
ers.
Teachers in fields not usually
associated with technical edu-
cation, like Andie Hammett and
Steve Van Dam, who both teach
art, explained .how their fields
of study create career opportu-
nities.
Salaried art directors earned
a median annual income of
$61,850 in 2002, according to

an article on ArtSchools.com.,
they said.
Career and technical educa-
tion courses are created using
Sunshine State Standards. For
example, reading, writing and
math figure in the curricula,
related to the needs of each
field.
The teachers urged the
school board to provide ade-
quate funding so that equipment
could be state of the art and rel-
evant to real world needs.
They pointed out that by
being relevant, their courses
encourage students to stay in
school, as well as develop a
good work ethic and self-
esteem.
John Rousch, an industrial
technology teacher at Lake
Placid High School and organ-
izer of the workshop, reported
on the continuing cooperation-
between the school district and
SFCC. Both have increased
awareness of each other's pro-
grams, and are working to coor-
dinate educational opportuni-
ties.
There are difficulties to be
faced, some of the presenters
said. Some of these programs
are costly because they require
special materials or expensive
equipment, class sizes have to
be smaller than those for tradi-
tional academic studies, and the
same courses aren't always
available at every high school.


For example, on the one
hand, Lake Placid students
don't have the same access as
the other high schools to some


SFCC dual enrollment opportu-
nities. But at the same time, the
other schools don't have stu-
dent banks like Lake Placid's.

ADVERSITY
Continued from 1A
was found at what used to be
Florida Citrus Nursery, on
Bombing Range Road in Avon
Park and it too was wiped out.
But he has never been one to
quit or give up.
As Dilley continues to obey
'the cruel and painful order to
destroy all that he has worked
for his whole life without any
compensation for his loss, he
wonders what he will do to
provide for his wife and fami-
ly. "We don't know what we're
going to do or where we're
going. We have no money and
no income."
When asked about compen-
sation for losses, Dilley said,
"You know what a mess
they're having up in
Washington with all the
storms, FEMA, earthquakes,
the war, and all that. So they
don't have any idea when
they'll even know if they're
going to appropriate any
money and won't know until
after the first of the year."
According to Dilley, the word
at present is that there aren't
any funds available to compen-
sate nurseries only groves.
Driving around the property,
Dilley pointed out where
everything used to be. As he
described the way things used
to be and looked at the vacant
dead land it is now, his eyes
began to water.
"I just get plumb emotional
sometimes when I look at all
this. My livelihood is gone,"
he said.
But not being one to dwell
on the negative, Dilley said he
still has hope. "I just take it
one day at a time," he said.
"Every day I ask the good
Lord to get us through."
Dilley is grateful for the life
he's lived and said, "It hasn't
always been perfect, but we've
had a good life."
With tear-filled eyes,
Bradley said of her dad, "He's
been the best dad anybody
could have always support-
ive of us kids and his grand-
children. We never had a prob-
lem we couldn't go to our dad
\% ith andhe's always been
there to pick up the pieces.


Roland Dilley and his wife, Mary, of 53 years cut there 50th wedding
anniversity cake together.


And I know that if my brother
were here to comment right
now he'd say the same thing."
Regarding the current cir-
cumstances with the nursery,
Bradley said, "It's been real
hard to see this happen and not
be able to do anything to help
him after all he's done for us. "
Jim Dilley has worked his
whole life with his dad and is,
as Bradley put it, "the apple of
his dad's eye."
The accomplishments
Roland has made in his life
have truly been remarkable.
But, according to Bradley,
Roland is a humble man who
has "never been one to toot his
own horn."
"A lot of people don't know
what all he's done in and for
the community," she said, "but
he served on the Avon Park
City Council as their youngest
member, was chairman of the
Avon Park City Fire
Department, served as a direc-
tor of the Avon Park Athletic
Association, helped Avon
Park's American Legion
Summer baseball team win the
state championship in 1946,
among other things."
Recently, after being a mem-
ber of the Florida Citrus
Nurserymen's Association
since 1960, Roland was made
an honorary member in April
of this year.
"We were all so proud of
him because in all the years of
theJ association, they've only .
made four people honorary


members," Bradley said.
Roland's life has served as a
tremendous role model to all of
his children in terms of charac-
ter, loyalty and dedication to
work and family, integrity and
moral backbone.
"All I can say," Bradley
said, "is that I am just so proud
of my dad. He didn't get to fin-
ish school at the University of
Florida where he had been
attending because he had to
come back home to care for his
mother who was sick. So he
did all of this without a degree.
Everything he knows he
learned by himself."
"He's the hardest worker
I've ever known," Phillips
said. "I've learned everything I
know from him and can do
basically anything any man can
do. He'd give you the shirt off
his back and it just isn't fair
for this to happen to him."
The family is understand-
ably shaken by all that is hap-
pening, but they have always
been survivors and there's little
doubt that somehow they will
find a new direction to go and
a way to move on.
In the words of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr, "The ultimate
measure of a man is not where
he stands in moments of com-
fort and convenience, but
where he stands at times of
challenge and controversy.".
Dilley's history has demon-
strated his ability to "measure
up."

The row of trees (above) is the same row of trees (right) that Roland Dilley stands next to after they were
uprooted and burned. Canker was the demise of Dilley's nursery, one he built up with his family's help.


DILLEY
Continued from 1A
When the News-Sun contact-
ed the nursery's office, daugh-
ter-in-law and sales manager
Linda Dilley wasn't there. She
didn't have any work left to do.
Right after Hurricane Wilma
hit weeks ago, she had three


reams of customer's orders to
call and cancel.
Workers hurt
Roland Dilley & Son Citrus
Nursery in Avon Park had to lay
off about 15 employees after the
canker find that has closed their
business. They still had about
eight working to dismantle
buildings on site.
There were still some work-
ing last week, according to


Virginia Neff, 43, who worked
there with her husband Irvin,
56.
Irvin was helping to disman-
tle buildings on site at the nurs-
ery off State Road 64, she said.
Once that's done, however, she
suspects he probably won't
have work either. The Neffs
don't have any children to look
after, but do have a grandchild
to care for and two nieces they


help.
Most of the other employees
were Hispanic, she said, and
unless there is similar labor for
them to do, they will be out of
funds, just as the winter holi-
days are arriving..
"This is a sad time," Roland
Dilley said.
Deep roots
Roland Dilley's grandfather
came to Avon Park from
Michigan in 1901. His father
was born in 1905, which made


him and Roland Dilley "true
natives."
His grandfather built all over
Highlands County, including a
lot of the original churches, and
made plenty of money, but
"never enough to get back
home," Roland Dilley said.
His son, Jim Dilley, right
after canker was discovered,
said neither he nor his father
expected to be looking for a job
so late in life, but he's not neg-
ative.
"We got where we are


because we were aggressive,"
he said. "We're not going to
quit. It's not in us."
It won't be easy, he said. The
employees won't have anything
to do. Right now, there are hard-
ly enough people left to take
care of one another, but he
hopes his family can help them.
"That's important to us. "We
care," Jim Dilley said. "That's
what it's all about. They're
helping us. We couldn't do it
without them."

TOFFIN' !T
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Some things don't
beat a sharp stick
in the eye
Thankfully, there are people
who don't faint at the sight of
blood, or body parts pulsing,
but I'm not one of them.
Even the phrase, "Beats a
stick in your eye," makes me
queasy.
Which is why I worried
about this week's Tuffin' It
assignment watching Dr. T.
Hunter Newsom perform
cataract surgeries at the
Newsom Eye & Laser Center
in Sebring.
Right from the beginning,
the situation seemed both omi-
nous and funny.
That's because Leeza
Skipper, a registered nurse and
one of Newsom's two adminis-
trators, told me we'd go right
into the operating room, as
soon as I put on a "bunny
suit."
A bunny suit is an all-over
cover, made of a white, light-
weight, disposable material.
Then I put on blue dispos-
able booties over my shoes,
covered my head with some-
thing that looked like a blue
shower cap, and topped it all
off with a surgical mask.
I looked like someone in a
sci-fi movie, the character who
handles toxic waste and dies
before the final reel.
But the real challenge came
as I walked into the operating
room.
I saw Newsom.already at
work. It looked like he was

Opthamologists and oiler medical professionals



Medicine: A field with a future


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Medicine is a growing
field for employment.
According to Career voyages.gov (put
up by the Department of Labor), there
will be 2,040,000 new openings created
in health care by 2012.
A vast number of those jobs will be
openings for nurses, medical assistants
and technicians.
The range of education needed for
these occupations runs from on-the-job
training to years of graduate school.
For instance, there are three educa-
tional paths alone to become a registered
nurse ; a diploma, an associate degree,
and a bachelor of science.
Then there are nursing specialties
which require even more schooling.
For example, Natalie Hanners, a nurse
anesthetist who contracts with the
Newsom Eye & Laser Center, needed a
master's degree to get her certification.
In addition, she had two years of anes-
thesia training.
Medical assistants can be managerial
or clinical. The former works in the
office and does paperwork, while the lat-
ter assists the physician and performs
different tests.
According to the Department of
Labor, the middle 50 percent of medical
assistants earned between $20,260 and
$28,410 in 2002.
South Florida Community College
offers several programs in the health
care field.
In fact, at Newsom's surgical center,
an informal poll revealed every nurse
and technician but one had attended
SFCC for at least a part of their educa-
tion.
The technicians monitored patients,
prepared them for surgery, assisted in the
operating room, or did the critical clean
up of surgical instruments.
Divided into teams, each had its spe-
cialty. They worked without breaks,
always on their feet. It is work that


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Dr. T. Hunter Newsom (left) performs cataract surgery at his surgical center in Sebring. Each operation takes about five minutes.
He moves between two operating rooms, while nurses and technicians prepare the patient. Not a motion or second are Wasted.
Newsom operates the microscope with his foot. There is another foot pedal that controls the Phaco machine, the vacuum like instru-
ment that actually removes the old lens.


requires some strength and plenty of
stamina.
And of course, health care workers
have to be patient, and able to work with
people in stress.
, Dr. T. Hunter Newsom is an
opthamologist, a medical doctor who


specializes in the eye. After earning a
bachelor of science from the University
of Florida in Gainesville, he attended
medical school there (another four years
of education). That-was followed by an
internship and residence .
Many physicians now work for man-


aged care systems, and are salaried.
One reason, Newsom is grateful to be
in partnership with other doctors, and
operating a surgical center of his own.
The Newsom Eye & Laser Center is at
3601 S. Highlands Ave. The telephone
number is 385-1544.

The -.est Medicine Is
Prevention
Today, new imaging technologies
give doctors greater insight into the
human body. That means doctors can
also see signs of disease earlier than
ever before, when the disease is most
treatable.
This marvel of modern medicine
images your body's vital organs and
tissues. It captures your health from
the inside out, revealing build-up in
your coronary arteries, nodules in
your lungs and potential tumors in
your abdomen and pelvis.
It is recommended that people
between 20 and 40 undergo a physi-
cal examination, including some type
of cancer and cholesterol screening,
every three years. If you're over 40
this exam should be done every year.
Coronary Artery Calcium
Scoring (CACS):
Calcification in the coronary arteries is
the earliest indicator of heart disease.
CACS uses noninvasive, high-speed
computerized tomography (CT) to
scan your heart and detect calcium
deposits along the walls of arteries.
The test then produces a calcium
score that identifies your level of
deposits. Taking into account other
factors such as age, family history and
cholesterol level, your doctor uses that
score to measure your potential for
heart disease.


Gaining Peace of Mind,
just in Time
The results of your exam
represent peace of mind,
since early detection is key
to prevention.

CT Health scans and CACS
(Coronary Artery Calcium
Scoring) are self paid
exams not currently cov-
ered by insurance that pro-
vide you with one of the
methods of health screen-
ing even if you have no
symptoms.

Considering over half the
people who died suddenly

EYE
Continued from 13A
injecting an eyeball with some
kind of liquid.
A cold sweat broke out on
my forehead, and I quickly
glanced away, only to catch
sight of the television monitor
where the patient's pupil was
broadcast, and measured about
a foot across. The sharp instru-
ment, of course, was propor-
tionally huge.
I swayed slightly, and swal-
lowed hard a couple of times,
managing to maintain my equi-
librium.
After that it got easier. In
fact, before I left I was even
able to look through the micro-
scope Newsom uses when he
operates, and peered into an
actual eye.
More about that in a minute.
First let me set the scene.
Tuesday is cataract day at
Newsom's surgery center. Two
operating rooms are set up,
each with its own nursing/tech-
nician team.
All day long, without
breaks, Newsom, and the two
teams operate on patient after
patient after patient. Newsom
goes from room to room. Each
operation takes only about five
minutes. Not a motion is wast-
ed.
Everyone knows their job so
well, there is little conversation
between them.
Now in addition to the two
surgical teams, there is a team
of nurse/technicians staffing
the pre/post operating room,
and another team of two tech-
nicians who transport the
patients to and from the operat-
ing room, and monitor them at
the staging area while they're
waiting.
The teams all worked
smoothly; itseemed nothing
was left to chance.
For example, just before
patients are wheeled into the
operating room, a technician
measures the height of the gur-
ney, and adjusts it to the level
Newsom requires to do the sur-
gery.
Newsom spoke of the
importance of getting in a
groove, and certainly there was.
- a rhythm in the work.
Patients ride on wheeled
gureys, completely dressed.
They are mildly sedated, but
well aware of their surround-
ings. No one reported any dis-
comfort.
I even had a brief conversa-
tion with one patient while
Newsom operated on her.
In fact, that patient, Gail
Greenisen, later sent a nurse
out after me to tell me how
much confidence she had in
Newsom.
Cataracts are the result of
aging. They occur when an
eye's lens hardens over time,
affecting vision.
It's like the difference
between looking through a
glass of water, and looking
through a glass of tea, Newsom
said.
The lens is inside the part of
the eye called the capsule.
Newsom described that as a
Ziploc bag filled with liquid.
To get to the lens, he has to cut
into the bag.
And he has to do that with-
out letting the liquid leak out.
So, with the eye numbed
with a topical painkiller, and
the patient relaxed with a mild
sedative, the eyelids are
propped open, and the pupil,

fully open, is exposed.
Newsom makes two cuts on
opposite sides of the pupil
(remember, this is all done on
so small scale, he needs a
microscope to see what he's
doing).
By injecting a slightly vis-
cous liquid in, he keeps the
thinner liquid from flowing
out.
Then, with instruments he
inserts through those openings,
he breaks up the lens, and vac-
uums it out.
The vacuuming part was
cool to watch, because the lens
by then looks like crinkled cel-
lophane, and you can see it
being sucked out.
Then Newsom injected the
new lens, which is fit to the


patient's prescription.
The new lens is soft and
comes folded. Once in the eye,
he had to position and unfold
it.
Greenisen, who was having
her second eye done, said
she'd been able to see out of
the first eye, the same day as
the surgery. She also reported
she has worn glasses since the
fourth grade, and now didn't
need them.
Now that's something worth
a sharp stick in the eye.

Tuiffley goes cooking at the
Avon Park Youth Academy. Any

Mail Call Etc. brings complete


mailing service to Lake Placid
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Armando .
Garcia and Bonnie Guerra -"
teamed up to offer a complete
mailing service to the town res-
idents by opening Mail Call,
Etc. 77-.-


Garcia and Guerra had a sec-
ond home in Lake Placid and
liked to visit. After looking at
their options for where to start
their new business, Mail Call,
Etc., they decided to finally
move here permanently in June.
"We were living in Las
Vegas. Armando had spent 30
years in the gaming industry
with Caesar's Palace. He came
to the U.S. originally in 1963
from Cuba. And I was a respira-
tory therapist at a Las Vegas
hospital. We'd contacted a start-
up company, who told us how
to put everything together. This
is not a franchise. But after
checking out rents, etc. we felt
Vegas was too expensive, and
since we had a vacation home
here, and are now semi-retired,
we decided to start the new
business here. Besides, Lake
Placid is growing so fast, and
we felt we could grow with it,"
Guerra said.
Guerra graduated from high
school in Miami, and always
considered Florida her second
home state. The fact that her
sister has lived in Lake Placid
since 1986 influenced her orig-
inally to buy her vacation home
in Lake Placid, and then to
make the final permanent move
and start the business here.
Mail Call Etc. offers a wide
variety of services such as
packing and shipping, packag-
ing supplies, office supplies,
stamps and postage, mailbox
rentals, laminating, money
orders, business cards, passport
photos, keys, ebay services,
binding services, legal forms,
rubber stamps, and notary serv-
ices. There's some gift items,
greeting cards, even sunglasses,
and reading glasses.
"My son, Guy Guerra from


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Van Nguyen of D&D Nails in the same shopping center, hands
owner Bonnie Guerra of Mail Call, Etc. some letters to fax. "This is
so handy for me. And they're good people," Nguyen said.


(Fort) Lauderdale is our manag-
er, and my sister, Sydney Anne
Miller, of Lake Placid is a
notary also, so it's a family
affair with everyone pitching in
whenever and wherever need-
ed. This is the first complete
service of its kind in Lake
Placid," Guerra said.
Mail Call, Etc. offers
Airborne, DHL, UPS, Fed Ex,
and USPS. "We're looking for-
ward to this upcoming season
and being able to efficiently
service customers," Guerra
said.
Their customers are enthusi-
astic about the service and feel


the location is convenient. Elsie
Stratton of Lake Placid said
they're courteous and take good
care of her. Van Nguyen of
D&D Nails in the same shop-
ping center said she comes sev-
eral times a week for mail or
faxes. "They're so handy for
me, and they're good people,"
Nguyen said.
Mail Call, Etc. is at 551 Dal
Hall Blvd. in the Publix shop-
ping center. Hours are from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Saturday. Holiday hours will
occur as the business dictates.

Message from Florida
Heartland Division
President -John Harding


Hospital


Dear Friends,

We devote our time talent and technology to His mission of care and compassion,
and we dedicate our hearts and hands to carrying forward a legacy of healing.
History may be measured from decade to decade, but commitment is measured from
one generation to the next. Florida Hospital Heartland has roots nearly 60 years
strong.

Thank you for the generosity and support that you have shown to Florida Hospital
Heartland Division Foundation. As responsible stewards of the resources entrusted
to us, we work in collaboration with the Foundation Boards to provide services that
go beyond the expectation of our community, including technology that is at the
forefront of healthcare.

As a mission-driven organization, we believe strength and growth have little virtue
unless they work to benefit others. With your help this means anything from build-
ing needed facilities to purchasing life-saving equipment, offering community well-
ness programs, to supporting volunteer mission projects. We also sponsor nursing
scholarship programs, and use funding for recruiting and supporting much needed
physician specialists.

Christ's healing ministry of love impacted each life He touched. His challenge to.us
is to "go and do likewise".

Sincerely,

John R. Harding
President/Chief Executive Officer
Florida Hospital Heartland Division

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Gifts from


a tree
I wanted to conceal an
electric cord in the corer
between our love seat and
fireplace with something
ornamental. One day, the
small ficus tree on our
screened porch caught my
attention. Its airy look
would be perfect.
I bought a pretty pot and
plant stand. Placing it in its
new location, the unsightly
cord almost disappeared
from view. The tree brought
life into the room and, as it
grew, would completely
hide the cord.
However, within a week's
time, I noticed something.
Every day, I retrieved yel-
low leaves from the floor or
plucked them off the
branches.
Perhaps I'm watering it
too much, I thought; or
maybe too little. I experi-
mented while the leaves
kept yellowing and falling.
I didn't want to lose the
plant simply because I
needed a decoration.
Then it came to me. The
comer the plant now called
home was dark. Could it be
that all it needed was some
light?
I began a new test. Each
morning, I moved the ficus
out to the porch in the sun-
light. After a few hours in
the sun, I moved it back to
its comer.
Within a week, the plant
was noticeably greener,
brighter and healthier with-
out the yellow fallout.
I learned that I couldn't
take a living thing and dec-
orate a corner'at:wilL:-- -. -.
Living things need sunlight
and care. Thejnew routine is
producing a thriving plant.
It has brought life and beau-
ty to the room only after
soaking in the sunshine.
In many ways we are like
that little tree.
Advent the four
Sunday before Christmas -
begins today. In the next
few weeks, we can prepare
for Christmas and thrive by
immersing ourselves in the
Son. Or, we can remain in
the shadows and let the true
vitality of Christmas pass us
by.
Four ways to soak in the
sun and bring life to our
surroundings is by giving
four special gifts this
Christmas. They won't be
expensive monetarily. But,
they have a price tag.
However, the rewards will
far out weigh the cost. The
gifts are mercy, kindness,
forgiveness and love.
God sent his Son, Jesus,
wrapped in these four gifts
that overflowed his Father's
heart. As we believe and
receive Jesus Christ, we are
equipped to give these life-
giving gifts lavishly because
his Spirit indwells us.
The time for receiving
God's gift of his Son will
run out one day; but, it has-
n't yet.
"The Lord is not slow in
keeping his promise, as
some understand slowness.
He is patient with you, not
wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to
repentance." (2 Peter 3: 9,
NIV)
Be like that little tree.
Soak up the Son shine,
flourish and participate in
life-giving gifts this
Christmas. Selah.

It's worth the drive !


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent

band, Ken, and I tell people about
driving 4,800 miles round trip on
our three week vacation in
October.
Cringing and shuddering were accompanied
by facial expressions that ran the gamut from
disbelief to a bad taste in one's mouth. But that
diii't dampen the meiriories'f ai delightful
vacation bh ear.
We laughed; but wondered why people are so
repulsed by the idea of taking a driving trip? Air
travel is faster though with earlier arrival
times and frequent delays it's more challenrg-
ing to fly these days. But what ever became of
planning a trip that.takes in the sights rather
than flying over them?

Gasoline dilemma
As gas prices soared, I admit we gave flying a
thought or two. All summer we wondered if we
were making the right decision. In fact, there
were a few times we
questioned whether
we should go at all.
What would the
gas' prices be ? Would'
there be shortages?
At last we bit the
bullet and stayed with
our plans. Once we
left Florida, gas
prices dropped below
$2.70 a gallon and
even plummeted to
$2.27 in Missouri.
Then they spiked
again in Colorado -
the highest at a "gas
trap" for $2.99, then.
leveling off to about
$2.54 to $2.74.
However, on the
way.backihome, we
were surprised to see
the prices falling
almost before our
eyes. Where we had
paid the unbelievable Mallards line up in a row.
price of $2.27, we
now paid $2.09. Once
into Kentucky and Tennessee the prices varied
between $2.29 and $2.39. Georgia welcomed us
with $2.24. Unfortunately, we got hit aside the,
head again once we crossed over the state line
into Florida.

Planning and anticipation
We've journeyed several times to Tennessee
and across country to Colorado; but these reac-
tions are a first. So, it may be time for a little
"defensive driving." That is, defending what
used to be the common mode of transportation
for a vacation.
Half the fun is in the planning. Maps spread
out over the living room floor are a sure sign
we're plotting our journey as we figure out dis-
tances and time. As weather is considered -
especially going west clothing is pulled out to
,accommodate the dropping temperatures.
Anticipation of crisp mountain air swells within
me.
Ken is the driver. I'm in charge of the food,
entertainment and mapping responsibilities. We
make a pretty good team.
I prepare nourishing, homemade "cuisine" to
keep us alert and satisfied for our picnic as we
drive: On the drive back, we try to be selective
since I can't create from my own kitchen.


Wayside lodging
One of the best discoveries we've made is
membership in the Wayside Travel Club. We
stay with Christian hosts who open their homes
for fellow Christian travelers, 55 and older.
The comfort of home along with the fellow-
ship meeting retired missionaries, teachers,
military couples.and hospitable homemakers -
make our travels more engaging as we visit and
,.share breakfast loether. The lowercost is.an
added benefit.
Sometimes motel stays are inevitable when a
Wayside home isn't available. But, it's always
our first preference.

Passing time
One of the joys of the journey for Ken and
me is focused, quality time. We're captive audi-
ences to each other. This isn't to say we talk
non-stop. Companionable silence fills some of
those hours. He drives and has time to reflect. I
read or write down some thoughts. Both of us
enjoy the sights.
We listen to praise music and sing along set-
ting a tone of wonder,
thanksgiving and awe
for our time together
and the beauty of cre-
ation. Sometimes, I'll
read a devotional
book to nurture a
quiet time with the
Lord as we drive.
On this trip, we
added three other
S"time passers" for
that long stretch
through the plains
states a radio
drama, an audio book
and teaching CDs. We'
listened intermittently
Between the three.
Sitting at the edge
of our seats, so to
speak, the theatrical
presentation of the
radio drama energized
our imaginations.
The audio book
actively engaged our
mind's eye with
sound effects and
voice changes for characters. The teaching CD
had us laughing and learning while sparking
great conversation.
The changing terrain, flowers 'and trees
encouraged us along like silent applause for our
progress. Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois,
Missouri, Kansas. Then when the mountains
appeared, it was as if a huge doorway tQ vaca-
tion opened to us.
Once we reached Colorado, all books and
CDs were put aside. We simply wanted to
absorb the beauty surrounding us without dis-
traction.
After a couple of weeks, it was time to turn
around and head for home. Once again we were
captive audiences for each other. We relived and
re-examined each aspect of our trip like the bril-
liant sunlight catching a jewel's many facets.
Conversation dripped like honey as we basked
in the restfulness of mind, body, soul and spirit
that had been granted to us on this trip.
Music, teaching and story CDs accompanied
us again as we watched the miles disappear
behind us and shorten before us getting us closer
and closer to home.

sight we had only previously seen on billboards,

What a trip


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
An early start at 5 a.m.
Sunday insured open highways.
At 10 a.m., Ken and I already
had five hours under our belt -
and were ready for that mid-
morning snack.
Our first stop after leaving
Florida was a visit with our son,
Chuck, and his 'family in
Tennessee. Chattanooga's dis-
play of gold and russet leaves
on the mountain trees whis-
pered the promise of more color
to come.
Tennessee's enchanting
nature parks are filled with
exquisitely mature trees and
delightful lakes where mallard
ducks, geese and other varieties
tickled our funny bone.
There's nothing like a picnic
in the park with grandchildren
swinging on swings, sliding
down slides and giggling; all
the while seeing nature through
their eyes.
One of the parks was within
walking distance and when
their parents suggested we
drive there, the children
protested and said, "No! We
want to walk with Grandma and
Grandpa." So off we went lit-
tle hands holding to ours -
enjoying the simple pleasures
of life and letting the outdoors
feed our souls and nurture rela-
tionships.

Landmarks
Leaving Tennessee, we


crossed over into Kentucky
with its magnificent ranches
and horses grazing in the mead-
ows. The next major landmark
was the St. Louis Arch. On
through Kansas and an
overnight in Abilene left us
only 5 1/2 hours from the
Colorado border. After a two
hour drive through Colorado's
flatlands, we gasped in awe at
the majesty of the Rocky
Mountains. Recently I heard
someone say that Colorado is
God's living room. I must
agree.

Pacing ourselves
Setting a manageable pace
on a long distance trip insures
relaxation rather than exhaus-
tion.
Once we arrived at our son,
Chris, home, we knew we had
four days to fellowship with
him and relax in the beauty that
surrounded us in Aspen. Most
of the aspens, yellow color was
gone; but, not all. Whenever I
spotted a golden scene, Ken
accommodated my joy and cap-
tured the beauty with a picture.
While walking a path along-
side a gurgling stream, a set of
twin aspens begged to be pho-
tographed. They were bright
and shimmering in the after-
noon sunshine, as if smiling for
our long distance photograph.
On a lovely drive and hike to
see the snow capped Maroon
Bells one of the most pho-

Creating Florida


* This is the second in a series
regarding the new Florida

gram being implemented in the

What is a "Florida Friendly

is an approach that recognizes
the home landscape as part of a
larger natural system. This does
not necessarily mean creating a
wild-looking yard, but it does
mean creating a landscape that
is more of an environmental
asset than a liability. If
designed, installed and main-
tained properly, it will be attrac-
tive, environmentally sustain-
able and protect natural
resources.
Plan first, plant last. In a
Florida Friendly Yard, appropri-
ate landscaping protects the
environment by stabilizing the
soil, preventing erosion, filter-
ing pollutants and reducing
harmful runoff. Other consider-
ations include aesthetics,
improving the resale value of a
home, noise reduction, climate
control and wildlife habitat.
Determine how you will use
your property. Do you need a
play area for children or a party


area? How about a
vegetable garden?
Maybe you just want
to enjoy looking at a
pleasing yard without
time consuming or
costly maintenance.
Analyze your
existing yard and
note any special con-
ditions. Take into
account sunny and
shady areas; areas
that flood or are
extremely dry. Take a
soil sample to the
local extension office
to check pH. Do you
have trees or shrubs

that are problematic? They may
need to be removed.
Prepare a plan for your
Florida Friendly Yard. Take into
account things such as septic
tanks, underground utilities or
overhead power lines and exist-
ing sprinkler systems. Sketch in
the activity areas and specific
areas for birds and butterflies. If
you live on the water consider
putting in a buffer zone of 10 to
25 feet for pollution control.
Next add to your sketch
where you want trees, shrubs,
groundcovers and flowering

Christmas movies run

at Avon Park Library


AVON PARK In
December, Christmas movies
seem to be "done" to death, but
here are three, lesser known
films handling the theme often
with style but always with
"cute."
Dec. 3: "Remember the
Night" was directed by Michael
Leisen in 1940. It is 86 minutes.
This excellent comedy-drama
stars Barbara Stanwyck and
Fred MacMurray. She is a
shoplifter awaiting trial that
spends the Christmas holidays
with her prosecutor, District
Attorney MacMurray and his
family. Buelah Bondi and
Sterling Holloway ably fill out
the cast. This film is not rated.
Dec. 10: "Metropolitan" is
directed by Whit Stillman in
1990. It is 107 minutes. The set-
ting for this little independent
film is New York City at
Christmastime. An inexperi-
enced college boy from the
middle class falls in among a
group of spoiled young debu-
tantes, to wit: "The Sally
Fowler Rat Pack." He is mes-
merized by their vapid conver-
sation and draws the eye of yet
another girl. The film is rated
PG-13 for profanity.
i' Dec. 17: "Love Actually"
is directed by Richard Curtis in
2003. It is. 135 minutes.
Christmas in the United
Kingdom post Sept. 11, 2001, is
the setting where the pervading


theme is "All You Need is
Love." Eight or nine relation-
ships improbably but slickly
form in an ensemble cast. The
dialogue is crisp and witty, but
it adds up to little more than
cute meringue. The rating is R
for profanity, nudity and sexual
situations.
Dec. 24: The library is
closed for the holiday.
Dec. 31: There will be no
film shown.
Wr details, call the Avon
Park Library at 452-3803.

Holiday office parties demand good manners


The holiday season is just
around the corer and depend-
ing on your career, you may be
invited to many parties, but the
most important party of the sea-
son is the one hosted by your
company. Your response, and
actions could be a determining
factor on future company
events, and your job security,
1. If there is not a family
emergency that is preventing
you from being there, attend the
event.
2. It's a festive occasion, and
despite differences of opinion,
"Tis The Season of Good
Cheer." Attend the event with
the intention of having a good
time, and avoid potential con-
frontations at all cost.
3. Avoid excessive use of
alcoholic beverages, whether it
is eggnog, holiday punch or top
shelf liquor. Even if the compa-
ny is providing it free, there is
no excuse for over-indulgence.
4. Remember no matter how

Executive Director John

trip where she observed stu-
dents honing their mobility
skills. She was coached on how
to protect herself while walking
without a cane, bussing a table
and finding dropped items.

ence as one of the most anxiety-
ridden experiences of her life.
This suspense thriller, made
famous by Audrey Hepburn, is
directed by Denise Miriani and
sponsored by Central Security
Systems and Mid-Florida
Federal Credit Union.

The cast includes Dan
Feathers as Sam Hendrix, Art

8B News-Sun, Sunday, November 27, 2005


TRIP
Continued from 1B
tographed mountains in
Colorado we found superb
stillness in the lake at its base; a
photographer's dream for cap-
turing the reflection. And a per-
fect spot for our own thoughtful
reflections.
Worshipping together with
our son at church is a blessing
in itself. But, how magnificent
to see mountains and aspen
trees as a backdrop through the
churches floor to ceiling win-
dows like a painting come to
life.
Those final hugs are hard to
give, but the time had come to
bid our son farewell and move
on for a short two days with
friends in Estes Park. This small
mountain town at the foot of
Rocky Mountain National Park
is one of our favorites.
On a hike, we rounded a bend


to see two male deer feasting on
lush branches. We moved slow-
ly, whispering so they wouldn't
run away. But, they just lifted
their heads, sized us up and
went on eating while Ken pho-
tographed them. When we came
back down, they were still con-
tentedly munching as we passed
by.
Marriage Getaway
The final part of our trip cul-
minated with a Marriage
Getaway at the Glen Eyrie
Conference Center, a castle in
Colorado Springs home of
The Navigators ministries.-
where our car stayed parked for
four days.
Besides lodging in this
incredible castle, eating gour-
met food and making new
friends, the sessions on
Scripture and Prayer in the
Marriage Relationship,
Entering into One Another's
Feelings, Defining Roles and
Love and Respect were enjoyed


by only 15 couples in an inti-
mate setting. Couples had plen-
ty of time alone.
During some free time, we
took the hike of our life. Never
had I imagined that I'd embark
on a climb in such dense, crag-
gy, steep, uneven terrain.
We were among a group of
fellow hikers from the marriage
getaway. Talk about teamwork.
We tugged and pulled and
helped each other make it to the
next plateau. When we reached
the waterfalls, I felt like I'd
done all I should. But, when
everyone moved on to the
Punch Bowls which was who
knows how much further up,
over, around and in between I
garnered my courage and set
my face to complete it with the
rest of them.
At last we arrived.
Unfortunately, one of our group
fell into the mountain cold
water that filled the "bowls"
after trying to run the rim as a


couple of others had done.
Those were tense moments as
two men struggled to get her
out. Thankfully, besides some
sore ribs and a few bruises, she
wasn't injured seriously.
However, a noticeable
change in the tone of the hike
accompanied us as we made our
way out. Everyone realized
anew how dangerous a trek and
how important our teamwork
was to getting back safely.
On another day, each couple
was treated to a horse drawn
covered carriage ride around
Glen Eyrie's incredible
grounds. The clop, clop of the
horses, hooves beat out a
rhythm of relaxation that held
us in its quieting grasp.
Lastly, we worshiped and
prayed together. Finally, our car
had come full-circle and now
must set its face east and then
south an admittedly difficult
thing to do when the driver and
passenger would have loved a


few more days in the mountains
Homeward bound
As we waved goodbye to
God's majestic living room, we
looked forward to our own
home and the life, family,
friends and ministries that
awaited us here.
Once home feet propped up


and a cup of peppermint tea in
hand we spent a couple of
evenings listening to the com-
pletion of the audio book. Our
driving trip has whetted our
appetite for this pastime to con-
tinue at home.
There's a lot to be said for
vacationing by car. What a trip.

Local artist

portrays life

as he sees it
SEBRING -Don Kah of
Avon Park won second place at
the Highlands Art League's
39th Annual Fine Arts and
Crafts Festival.
He has also been honored by
inclusion of his works in The M
Show at the prestigious
Lauritzen & Rush Gallery on
Marco Island (Art League of
Marco Island) throughout the
month of November.
Kah looks at things differ-
ently. He examines subjects to
find what lies beneath.
Kah's work is on permanent
display at the Sebring court-
house, Sebring library, and
Highlands Art League, and sev-
eral prominent personal collec-
tions are included for sale in
the gift shop at the "Yellow
House" of HAL, and at
Magnolia Village on Lake
Jackson. Selling only originals,
Kah uses December and
January to create and frame
more collages for his February
and March fine art shows.
Kah's winter season shows
this coming year are in down-
town Stuart, Feb. 25-26;
Jupiter/Juno-by-the-Sea on A-
1A March 11-12, 2006, then
finishing with downtown
Naples, March 25-26.
Kah only shows in Florida,
and only when the weather is
not too hot for him and his wife
of 11 years, Carol Kah, a local
Realtor.
Where many would see just
a beautiful object, Kah sees the
many layers of texture and
color that create the appearance
of beauty to the human eye.
Kah is able to take us into his
artistically stunning work via
his mixed media collage tech-
niques. -Color and texture
define Kah's work. It continues
into his matting and framing,
also done by this fine artist.
His work is never re-created,
and no reproductions are ever
printed.
Kah is self-taught and has
refused many offers to teach, as
he feels his method cannot be
taught. At age 70, he chooses
instead to reach inward for his
collage creations.
They come from his life
experiences and his visual per-
ception of reality. Kah encour-
ages future artists to do the
same stretch the barriers and
boundaries and do the art they
love.
Kah combines 55 years of
painting and drawing in various
mediums including pastels,
oils, acrylics, watercolors,
chalk, pen and ink, with more
traditional collage techniques
to create a one and only col-
lage.

News-Sun, Sunday, November 27, 2005


EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Thanksgiving should come with courtesy


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927


There is plenty

of stuff to do
Editor:
I read a letter to the editor
awhile back complaining of
nothing to do in Highlands
County. Several people have
written in rebuttal to that letter.
Well, I'm about to add to those
rebuttals.
Nov. 12, my wife Mary and I
went to see the finals for the-
Heartland Idol contest. The
Circle was full of people from
all age groups and everyone
had a great time. The contest-
ants vying for the coveted title
were all great and deserving of
the recognition they achieved. I
wonder if the writer of the let-
ter about nothing to do was
there.
Nov. 19, Mary and I went to
"Music in the Park" at
Highlands Hammock State
Park. The California Toe-Jam
Band was playing music from
the '50s, '60s and '70s and they
were fantastic. The circle at the
picnic area was packed with
people ranging from 5 years of
age to well definitely over
55. They were all rocking and
rolling to the beat and humor of
the five members that make up
this unique band. Harry
Havery, lead guitar and vocals;
T.J. Kinyon, bass guitar and
vocals; Larry Johnson, rhythm
guitar and vocals; Rodney
Hollinger, key board, saxo-
phone, you name it and vocals;
Jay Grubb on the drums. The
guys get up there and have fun
and they play great music. Ijust
wish (or hope) that the writer of
that letter about nothing to do
in Highlands County had been
there.
There was a special guest
drummer, Trent Ferguson, that
sat in for three songs. Trent
really got the crowd on their
feet. Trent is the grandson of
T.J. Kinyon, the bass player.
Although not yet profession-
al material, he is well on his
way; after all Trent is only 7
years old, but already knows
how to have fun with an audi-
ence.
Oh, one other thing, Trent
has been blind from birth. Has
that hindered him any? Not in
drumming, nor in seeing it is
what one does that makes life
great. I wish I could be more
like Trent. Do I mean blind like
him? No, I wish I could see life
the way he does. Most of all I
wish the person who wrote that
letter about nothing to do in
Highlands County could see
like Trent Ferguson; rock on
Trent.

AS
a


not sure what will hap-
SLOOK pen to them after that,
but it wouldn't sur-
e prise me if they got
Wa agents it is
California, after all.
By the way, if you do enjoy
your Thanksgiving dinner, you
need to thank a nameless
farmer, according to an upcom-
ing book about Benjamin
Franklin called "The
Completed Autobiography of
Benjamin Franklin" (edited by
one of Franklin's descendants,
Mark Skousen). This farmer
stood up in an assembly that
was considering proclaiming a
fast to contemplate the hard-
ships they had just survived.
In case you have forgotten, a
fast is when you don't eat.
When you choose to do without
food in order to devote yourself
to prayer or contemplation.
Fasting was familiar to these
New Englanders, who had
authorized other fasts.
The farmer in question,
according to Franklin, pointed
out that things were actually
improving for the colonists. He
suggested that instead of focus-
ing on their suffering they


should celebrate their blessings
with a feast. Others liked the
idea, and that's why we get to
eat on Thanksgiving instead of
fasting. I don't know about you,
but I'm grateful.
Speaking of gratitude, the
preacher at my congregation
told a story during his sermon
last Sunday. It went something
like this:
A woman, her arms loaded
with packages and two young
children clinging to her legs,
boarded a crowded bus. A
young man offered her his seat.
She was so shocked she fainted.
When she was revived, she
took the offered seat and
thanked the young man. He
promptly fainted.
The point of the story is, of
course, that courtesy isn't as
common as it used to be. And a
lot of us have forgotten the
importance of thanking others.
So, in this last part of the col-
umn, I want to go ahead and
give some thanks of my own.
I will always be grateful to
God for the blessings He has
given me, including my ability
to put words together in ways
that others find readable and


entertaining.
I am grateful to my family
for understanding the passion
that writing is for me and doing
what they can to let me chase
this particular dream.
I appreciate my friends -
fellow writers, fellow
Christians, and fellow crazy
people who encourage me,
support me, and sometimes
smack me upside the head when
I need it. I am a better person
thanks to you.
My readers, I can't thank
enough. Not only those who
agree with me and tell me they
enjoy my column, but also
those who disagree and are
willing to tell me so. We can
learn a lot from each other in
the days and weeks to come,
and I look forward to the
debate.
Thank you all for what you
have done for me. Now put
down this column and thank
someone you know.

dent and a contributing colum-

Murtha is not

squeaky clean
Editor:
The TV is blasting away
about Rep. John P. Murtha, rep-
resentative of the 12th district
of Pennsylvania, and his sug-
gestion of getting out of the
war in Iraq.
They call him an honorable
man.
The president of the United
States is called a liar, cheat,
etc., etc. by many elected
democrats in Congress.
Not one word about Rep.
John P. Murtha and the
Abscam.
I lived in the 12th District of
Pennsylvania for all my life 'til
moving to Florida. Those
involved in the FBI Abscam
got off scott-free as it was
called entrapment.
Someone produced phony
papers regarding President
Bush and his time in the
National Guard but no one can
find the newspaper articles and
the film on Rep. John P. Murtha
trying to get money out of the
Arabs?
I ran for election many,
many times. I asked myself the
question back at the time, how
do you entrap an honorable
elected official?
OK, Rep. (Mark) Foley, get
it out in the open, of the past of
one of your fellow representa-


tives, and no one has to pro-
duce any phony documents to
expose it.

Mechanics are

taking bad rap
Editor:
As a retired mechanic and
shop owner, I take great offense
to the article by Mike
Schneider regarding the head-
ing of the article stating that
Carlie Brucia's killer was a
mechanic.
This does not do our profes-
sion justice. Mechanics are
mostly good and very intelli-
gent people. The heading of
this. article suggests that
mechanics are killers. I wonder
if Joe Smith was a newspaper
reporter or a person of any
other profession, would Mike
have used the same heading if
that were the case? I think you
should print an article apolo-
gizing to the mechanics who
keep the wheels turning in this
country. Date of article was
Nov. 18.
Donald Levine

The writer has been a certified
mechanic for 45 years.

Not a happy

ending here

Editor:
I'm writing this letter as a
rebuttal to the Humane
Society's news article in last
week's paper. I have had a hor-
rible experience with them just
recently and think the news
article they wrote up was not
entirety truthful.
It started about a month ago
right after (Hurricane) Wilma


'The invention of television can be compared to the

introduction of indoor plumbing. Fundamentally it

brought no change in the public's habits. It simply

eliminated the necessity of leaving the house.'
ALFRED HITCHCOCK, filmmaker, 1965


had hit. We had found a little
kitten that was dumped in the
woods. She was emaciated,
scared, and freezing cold.
After about an hour in the
woods trying to coax her out
and gain her trust, I was finally
able to contain the kitten. I
immediately took her inside to
feed and clean her. With three
dogs of my own (a pitbull, jack
russell, and corgi) I knew this
would be difficult. In addition
to that, I am very allergic to
cats.
I put that aside for a while
thinking about the kitten and
how I could find her a good
home! I work in a dental office
and thought surely with all the
people I come in contact with
someone would adopt her.
After the first week of asking
everybody I knew, I was realiz-
ing the kitten and I were having
no luck. I then took it upon
myself and took her to the vet
to get checked out. She was
given all her shots and was
healthy. I have now already
invested more than $75 into
this kitten, I began to call
Callie.
I notified the Humane
Society and they said they were
unable to help me. They were
overcrowded, plain and simple,
just like that! Callie was not
giving a single chance.
They mentioned Animal
Control may be able to assist
me. Well, this kitten was per-
fectly healthy and there was no
reason for her to be considered
for euthanasia, not after what I
have been through for her. She
was not aggressive nor deathly
sick, so why euthanasia? I
mean that is the Humane
Society's policy as they stated
in the article. They state an ani-
mal will not be put down unless
it was sick or aggressive! Callie
was neither.
I was determined to get her
adopted! I then met a man who
adopted a cat from the Human
Society so I then placed anoth-
er call to them asking if they
would take her now. A cat was
adopted why couldn't another
be taken in I thought? Callie
came with her own litter box,
litter, food (both wet and dry),
treats, toys, a flea. comb and
brush and a vet's certificate of
healthiness. Still she was
denied.

It's that time of year
again. Time to chow LAURA
down on turkey and all
the trimmings, and for- aur
get there is such a word
as "diet" in the
American language. I'm sure
many of you are still eating
your way through your left-
overs. Given I have two teenage
boys in my house (yes, my col-
lege student is home this week)
the chances of leftovers in this
house by Sunday is about 50-
50.
Two animals that are proba-
bly very thankful are the
turkeys that have been named
- I am not kidding -
Marshmallow and Yam. These
names were selected after thou-
sands of people voted on the
matter on the White House Web
Site, proving that some people
have way too much time on
their hands.
Marshmallow and Yam were
given a presidential pardon
from being dinner on
Thanksgiving. Instead -
again, I am not kidding they
will be honorary Grand
Marshals at Disney-land's
Thanksgiving Day parade. I'm

News-Sun, Sunday. November 27, 2005 3u


LETTERS
Continued from 2D
I must have called every other day to see if there was an
openings. The last phone call was a few days ago when a
man picked up. He stated to me that he himself was wait-
ing for Animal Control to pick up two animals from the
humane society, that's how overcrowded they were he
explained. Well, that doesn't sound right I thought. The
Humane Society is supposedly a No Kill shelter.
He also said that just because one cat was adopted or
maybe even several, they still \\would not lake Callic. NIM
heart just broke listening to this.
The bottom line here is that I had to give the kitten to
Animal Control (I was getting too sick with my allergies)
and pray that they find her a home and not end her life.
She fought so hard to survive tllhght the hurricane and
desperately needed a good loving home. Animal Control
stated they give cats and kittens a "shelf life" of six days.
How sad.
For the Humane Society to state in its article that it's all
heart, and not money, that matters, is a bunch of garbage.
... There is a major animal control problem that needs to
be addressed in this county, however I don't believe we
should consider euthanasia unless they are sick or aggres
sive.
Marveen McPhee (Humane Society president) in her
article makes the Humane Society sound like they're
doing everything they can, well this was not the case here.
I have always supported the Humane Society and have
adopted two of my dogs from them. Now. how can I sup-
port what they have done? Could you?

A long,
Stranded on the side
of the road' near Bowie,
Texas. and about 100
miles Iromn where I
started, I called my
insurance company's
roadside assistance.
It was Nov. II, which
feels as if it were forev-
er ago. I quit my posi-
lion as the courts and
police reporter at the
daily paper in Lawton,
Okla.., to come to the
Sebring News-Sirn.


and trying, drive to a new home


A
SPOKE'N
KFVIN J. SHITI


Becky, whose last name I didn't
feel it appropriate to ask and
wouldn't print if I did have it,
took my call.
She was polite, patient and
helpful. hearing with me as 1 tried
to determine just exactly where 1
was on U.S. 81 somewhere in
North Texas.
"Would you like to have your
car towed back home?" she asked.
1 told her no, that I was trying
to get to Florida and wanted to
keep pushing on always for-
ward.
"We're in Florida," Becky said.
"You are? Where about?" I
asked, not expecting the answer 1
received.
"Sebring."
"Can you say that again?" I
requested of her.
"Sebring."
1 was floored. There 1 was.
some 1.200 miles from Sebring,
between homes, and I was being
helped by somebody here.
"That's where I'm trying to
get," I told her. "I took a job with
the News-Sun."
(In the spirit of full disclosure,
let me say that the above is only a
snippet of my conversation with
Becky. We were probably on the
phone for more than 20 minutes,
most of which was occupied by


my crying and telling
my sob story.)
The phone records
are still being investi-
gated to see who called
the paper first to report
my (vehicular) break
down my call to the
executive editor or
somebody fi'om Cross
Country who has a
friend at the paper.
As luck would have
it, Bowie rolls up the
sidewalks at dusk and


my car was towed into town just
before quitting time.
The mechanics at Ward's
Automotive took a quick look-
see, speculating that my car had
an electrical problem, possibly
nothing more than a loose battery
cable preventing a proper
recharge.
Not wanting to risk breaking
down again up the road, I told
Mike to look at the car in the
morning (it was only 5 p.m.
Friday, at this point) to ensure
something worse wasn't the cul-
prit.
"The morning" turned out to be
Monday, as Ward's isn't open
weekends, nor is any other shop in
town.
I had planned on being here by
Sunday.
So, I could spend the next two,
possibly three, days in Bowie
(which makes Sebring look like
Orlando), call a good friend (and
former co-worker) in Lawton, or
call my brother, who lives in
Austin, Texas, with his wife.
I was closer to Lawton, but I
didn't want to look back, so I
called my brother, who lives four
hours away- always forward.
He arrived at midnight and we
shared a bed (I'm man enough to
admit it) in the motel, then left for


Austin early Saturday.
I enjoyed Mark's and Jayme's
company, a much-needed visit for
which I originally didn't think I
had the time.
By Monday afternoon, the call
came in from Mike that the elec-
trical system was OK but the AC
compressor bearing was wearing
out and if it went, I'd have big
problems as the car's serpentine
belt is attached to its pulley.
1 told Mike to fix it. He said it
would be ready by noon Tuesday.
Mark dropped me off around
2:30 p.m. Tuesday and as he made
the four-hour return trip to Austin,
I drove toward Dallas, still towing
my trailer.
I drove seven hours Tuesday,
crossing into Louisiana before
deciding to catch a short nap at a
pull-over before continuing on my
journey.
Having overslept, I woke up six
hours later Wednesday morning
and was on the road again by 4:30
a.m. always forward.
Not an hour later, my engine
was spewing white smoke.
After limping along Interstate
49, trying to get to the community
about 10 miles up the road
(always forward), my transmis-
sion disappeared.
I won't repeat what spewed
from my mouth the next three
minutes I'd like to keep my
job.
Don and Kelly (a father-son
team) at Coleman's Transmissions
in Natchitoches, La., got right on
it. Let's just say that that was an
expensive breakdown.
It also cost me two more travel
days.
Mom had cautioned against
towing anything with my 1992
LeSabre (boasting in excess of
214,000 miles). Other friends also
said as much.


I didn't listen---
While waiting for the transmis-
sion to he replaced I contacted the
local U-haul, telling them I need-
ed to return a 5-by-8-feet trailer
and get a truck and auto trans-
porter.
Considering my predicament,
Bradley bumped another reserva-
tion giving me a 17-footer and a
great rate on the auto trailer.
By Thursday evening my car
was fixed, I had swapped my
belongings from the trailer to the
truck, and the LeSabre was loaded
on the transport.
Having already paid for anoth-
er night at the motel, I opted to
wait for Friday morning and get a
fresh start.
Having gotten more than
enough sleep over the past week, I
woke up Friday morning ready to
put this trip behind me.
The troublesome car was now
in tow, so I shouldn't have any
problems, except that problems
come in threes.
Two hours into my trip, the
truck shuddered, a slapping noise
came from behind the cab.
The truck drove well enough,
but I decided to investigate. I
pulled into a gas station and called
U-Haul's roadside assistance.
In two-and-a-half hours, I was
on the road, again. The truck had
blown a back tire (it was a dually)
and U-Haul sent somebody out to
replace the tire and wheel.
1 arrived in the Florida panhan-
dle in the late afternoon and
stopped for the evening north of
Panama City.
By 5 p.m. Saturday I was in
Sebring, finally.
It's good to be home.

Red Devils


wrestling with


inexperience
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Most high school teams, no
matter how inexperienced, usually have at least a
core of players that have at one time or another
.been involved in the sport they're playing, even
if it's just from goofing off in the back yard.
Wrestling, however, is a little bit different, as
the folks at Avon Park High School are finding
out.
The Red Devils' first-year wrestling program
has plenty of participants a total of 78 signed
up and 28 remain but for most of them,
wrestling was something that came on TV and
involved Hulk Hogan.
Put it this way: The most experienced Red
Devil wrestler is a freshman with a grand total of
two months of club wrestling under his belt.
"The biggest challenge we've faced is the kids
just don't know what the sport is," said co-head
coach Lee Elder. "They hear wrestling and they
think drop kicks, but it's a lot more technical than
that."
Inexperienced or not, the Devils have been
working hard getting ready for the inaugural sea-
son.
"They have a sense of pride," co-head coach
Ed Brown said. '"They don't want to quit, but I
think they were surprised at how hard it is."
They must be doing something right. In their
first ever tournament on Wednesday in Winter
Haven, the Devils got a first place in the 152-
pound class from senior Zach Smith, a second at
160 pounds from freshman James Bland and
third-place finishes from Sergio Duran, Jonathan
Fields, Josue Ortiz and James Roman.

Spending some time

trapped in the past
The recent cool weather we enjoyed brought
back memories of my winters in rural Indiana.
As I was growing up, I spent a lot of time wan-
dering the woods and creeks eager to learn
everything I could about the outdoors and the
wildlife that lived there.
Once, when I was about 12 years old, I was
fishing a little stream on my grandfather's farm
when I spotted a small, dark
chocolate-colored animal
searching along the edge of
the opposite bank.
It was intriguing to watch
as he seemed to stick his
nose into every indentation
in the bank and under every
rock, large and small. He
moved quickly and he
seemed to flow over the OUTDOORS
rocks and little ridges and
crevasses in the ground. He L d
crossed to my side of the Lloyd ones
creek and I sat very still as
he disappeared from sight around a bend.
I was afraid he was gone, but in just a minute
or two he popped up only a few feet from where
I sat. I froze and when he came closer, he did
the same. He stopped, twisted his head to one
side and then to the other while sort of bobbing
it up and down. He seemed to be sniffing the

how many times did
he lead the league?

SET
Continued from 1E
been nothing because Brittany
needs a good set," Sinness said.
"That goes for all the girls.
Lindsey had her off nights, but I
couldn't imagine having an
average setter on my team,
because we would have been in
a world of trouble.
"She made all my girls look
good most of the time."
Espaillat also had 71 kills, 34
blocks, 35 aces and 285 digs to
help the Streaks make it to the
Class 4A playoffs.
The Streaks will miss all of
those numbers next season, but
Sinness said it's the lack of
Espaillat's sets that will set her
team back the most.
"Next year, I'm going to be
in big trouble. Even though I
have some big hitters coming
back, they're going to be noth-
ing without a good setter."
Here's the rest of the 2005
News-Sun All-Highlands
County volleyball team:
Coach Marilyn Jones
Lake Placid
Jones earned the News-Sun
Coach of the Year after leading
the Dragons to a first-ever dis-
trict championship and into the
playoffs with a 15-5 record.
Jessica Cormier
Avon Park Jr.
Cormier's defensive play
kept the Lady Devils in a lot of
games, coach Christie Hipps
said, turning her into a team
leader that will be a valuable
part of the Avon Park roster
next season.
"When we were down, she
really hustled after the ball and
got there," Hipps said. "I could
really count on her to do the
work that was needed for the
game."
Amanda Tindell
Avon Park Sr.
Tindell also emerged as a
leader for the Devils this sea-
son, according to Hipps, using
her setting and digging abilities
to help the team on both offense
and defense.
"Amanda was also my setter,
but she. worked better on
defense," Hipps said. "Her set-
- ting improved from last year.
When the going got tough, she
stepped up."
Kysi Wooden
Avon Park Sr.
Wooden used the leaping
ability she's honed on the bas-
ketball court to develop into a
weapon at the net for the
Devils.
"She really stepped up on
spiking the ball this year, so she

Kent of Lake Placid (right) were both leaders at
the net for their teams.


deserves to be All-County,"
Hipps said. "She was my top
hitter on the outside, so I went
to her in most of our games. She
got our most valuable player
this year."

Jackie Berard
Lake Placid Jr.
The Lady Dragons' setter
made the most of increased
playing time this year, Jones
said.
"This year she got a lot of
playing time and did very well.
She played club ball and that
helped her considerably. She
got to a lot of balls that I think a
lot of kids would have given up
on."
Berard had 278 assists and 58
kills as well as nine digs and 32
aces and a serving percentage
of 84.
"She's not very big, but she's
got a very.big heart and really
enjoys the game," Jones said.
Dana Kent
Lake Placid Sr.
The Lady Dragons' co-cap-
tain was a force at the net that
helped guide Lake Placid to its
first ever district championship.
"She was always wanting the
ball," Jones said.
"Dana had a lot of faith in
herself and it showed. She had a
lot of good kills this year."
In fact, Kent had a team-high
122 kills to go along with 62
digs and an 86 percent success
rate in serving, which netted her
56 aces.
Samantha Gilliard
Lake Placid Sr.
Gilliard was the Lady
Dragons' captain and teamed


with Kent to give Lake Placid a
strong pair of hitters on the left
side.
"They both led by example,"
Jones said. "Dana was a very
calming effect. She would go to
the girls and talk to them and
calm them down. Sam was a lit-
tle more aggressive. She'd fuss
at them. She was very into the
game.
"We lost a lot last year, and
these two girls really both
stepped up. They were a very
pleasant surprise at the start of
the year and it lasted throughout
the year."
Gilliard had 108 kills and 87
digs as well as 31 aces, serving
at a success rate of 80 percent.
Allison Gilde
Lake Placid Jr.
Gilde was a versatile player
for the Dragons this season.
Most of her contributions com-
ing on defense, but she was also
a valuable part of the offense,
ending up with 104 digs, 18
assists, 29 aces and six blocks
as well as a sparkling 98 per-
cent success rate on serves.
"She was just one of the
steadiest players we had," Jones
said. "If the setter got the first
hit, Allison was right there to
set the ball, get it over or pass it
over. She'll be back with us
next year, so we're grateful for
that."

Brittany Bullock
Sebring Jr.
Bullock battled back from an
injury to have a solid year for
the Streaks, becoming one of
the area's top offensive threats
with 154 kills and 63 blocks,
both county highs. She also had


24 aces and 81 digs, making her
an all-around threat.
"She's intimidating," Sinness
said. "When we played Lake
Placid (and lost) the first time,
Brittany wasn't able to play and
the second time, (the Sebring
players) gave the excuse that
one of the reasons they didn't
play well the first time was
because Brittany wasn't on the
court.
"It's just her presence, it's
her demeanor, it's everything
about her. That's what makes
her a great athlete."
Clarice Tuazon
Sebring Sr.
As Sebring's libero the
player in the different-colored
jersey who can sub in and out
without checking in Tuazon
had to be ready to head onto the
court at a moment's notice to
bolster the Streaks' defense,
something she did admirably
with what Sinness called an
"amazing" 351 digs.
"The libero position, you can
make or break a game," Sinness
said. "She was a great, great
attribute to our team this year.
"I was very impressed with
her this year. She did a great
job. It will definitely be hard to
replace her next year, too."


PAST
Continued from 1E
air. He slowly eased up the
shallow bank and was gone.
Later, when I described
what I had seen, my grandfa-
ther told me it was a mink and
that very few ever see a mink
in the wild. For several days
afterward, I slipped down to
that creek on my grandfather's
farm in hopes of catching sight
of him again. I found his tracks
in the mud, but never the
mink.
That encounter stuck with
me and I wanted to learn all I
could about mink and their
habits. I would visit an uncle
who raccoon hunted and had a
lot of old hunting magazines.
He also trapped for raccoons
and other fur-bearing animals.
He taught me a lot about
wildlife and the old magazines
whetted my appetite for hunt-
ing and trapping.
A few years later, I asked
my grandfather about the rusty
steel traps I saw hanging in the
barn. He gave them to me, say-
ing he no longer had any use
for them.
I stumbled through the first
trapping season catching a
couple of opossums, a weasel
and several rabbits. It was dis-
appointing, but I was learning.
The fur trapping season ran
from Nov. 15 through Jan.
15th and I could hardly wait
for the summer to end.
I scouted the woods and
streams early and had pretty
much planned how and where
I would be trapping. I had
found several muskrat dens
and slides along with well-
traveled paths of raccoons and
fox crossings.
Mink were a little scarce
and finding an ideal place to
trap one was a challenging
task. With the arrival of the
season, I had picked up a few
more traps. In the first few


weeks, I caught a dozen or
more muskrats, three raccoons
and a couple of unwanted
opossums whose pelts were
hardly worth the time it took to
skin and stretch them.
While running my trap line
one morning I found where a
mink had been visiting a hill-
side spring deep in the woods.
I built a pocket about six inch-
es square and about the same
height. I didn't go near the
spring again for more than a
week to give the mink time to
get used to the changes I had
made. When I did return to the
site I found signs that the mink
had been there.
I had brought a bait which I
placed carefully back into the
pocket. The trap was then hid-
den beneath the water and cov-
ered with silt in front of the
baited pocket. Not wanting to
disturb the area more than nec-
essary, I would check the
spring from a distance each
morning.
Nearly a week went by and
nothing bothered the spring.
But then one morning as I
approached, I could see things
looked very different. A small
briar patch close by was shak-
ing and rustling and my trap,
which was attached to a small
limb, was entangled in the
brush.
I had caught my first mink
and he was a large, dark-col-
ored male. I guess I felt like
Jack O'Connor did when he
took his first grizzly bear. Yes,
I was on cloud nine.
Over the following years, I
caught several mink, but none
ever rivaled the thrill I got
from my first success. I would-
n't know how to catch a wild
mink now because those old
steel traps have been outlawed
for several years.

DEVILS
Continued from 1E
"We were very shocked,"
Elder said. "We're very, very
proud. They exceeded our
expectations.
"This will only help them
because they experienced some
success and hopefully this will
make them want to work harder
and do better the next time."
Elder was the driving force
behind getting the program
started, getting into the sport
after marrying into the
Germaine family, which
includes former Sebring stars
Dustin (1998 state runner-up)
and Blake (2005 state champi-
on).
"I started watching their
matches and got interested in
the sport and wondered why we
never had it in Avon Park," the
1987 APHS graduate said. "I
thought it would be a good
thing for the kids. It keeps them
motivated and gives them
something to do in the winter.
They've got basketball and soc-
cer in the winter, so their
options are pretty limited. This
gives them another option."
Brown has been into
wrestling a lot longer, compet-
ing at the University of
Maryland before coaching at
Lake Wales for 17 years.
"Coach Brown knows a lot
about wrestling techniques,"
Elder said. "He's been in it a
long time and he's given the
kids some valuable informa-
tion. I've been learning a lot
from him, too."
All Brown's years of experi-
ence, however, haven't includ-
ed building a team from
scratchr.
"When I took over Lake


Wales, it was almost starting
from scratch, but I had about
four guys that had seen a
wrestling mat before and had
knew what the objective was,"
Brown said. "(Here) they have
a general idea, but they're real
rough on the basics."
The steepest learning curve
has been in the endurance
department, Brown said, and
his wrestlers would agree.
For the most part.
"It's about what I expected,"
said Roman, a junior 140-
pounder. "It's pretty tough. I
was hoping for it to be a little
bit harder, but they're going
kind of soft on us our first
year."
Elder quickly reminded
Roman where he ended up after
his first full-speed match in
practice throwing up outside
and saying he'd never been so
tired.
"The wrestling is tough, but
the training isn't as hard as I
expected," Roman amended.
"The wrestling is a lot different
than the training. You're not
using as much force when
you're training.
"It's a real tough sport. You
have to make it instinct, so you
have to do it over and over so
you can do it at the snap of a
finger."


"They have no idea what it's
like to go a full six minutes
against somebody their own
size that's putting forth all of
their effort," Brown said. "That
endurance factor of going six
minutes hard ... that's a very
long time.
"We do non-stop calisthenics
for two minutes at the start of
every practice, and they're dead
at the end of two minutes.
Imagine doing that for six min-
utes."
'That being said, however,
both coaches are pleased with
the amount of progress the pro-
gram has made in such a short
time. Still, this season will be
more about learning than about
wins and losses, which is why
the coaches are not worrying
about getting their wrestlers to

lose weight in order to fill up all
the classes.
"We're not really asking the
kids to cut weight," Elder said.
"They'll pretty much wrestle at
their natural weight because we
really want to emphasize learn-
ing the sport, respecting the
sport and teaching them about
competing no matter what. Win
lose or draw, just do your best
and you'll be satisfied with
yourself.
"These kids have come a
long way."
