Work ongoing at Harder Hall


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING - Stepping over
baseboards and around
makeshift work stations, the
Community Redevelopment
Agency commissioners toured
historic Harder Hall on
Nlondj .
SSam Dees, construction
superintendent, led the group
through the north and south
wings, the Green Room, and the
restaurant.
Marc Shenker is president
and Kevin Taylor is vice presi-
dent of Joran Reality
Corporation, which owns the


property. Together with Perry
Taylor (Kevin Taylor's broth-
er), the three own Harder Hall.
The owners were out of town
during the tour.
"I think they've done an
excellent job of hiding a lot of
problems," CRA corlini.ioinie -'
James F. McCollum ,jid
Dees told the commission
that he has a crew of 14 work-
ing for him and he is on sched-
ule for the late-February, early-
March opening of Harder Hall
Resort and Spa.
"We're trying to open in time
for the races," Taylor said, in a
phone interview Tuesday, citing


the storied 12 Hours of Sebring.
McCollum, however,
expressed concern that during
the hour-long tour he didn't
come across many workers and
th' in some places mold was
vi:-' ' such as on the underside
of -''r in the south wing.
'1 ne kinds "of mold we're
seeing today are much more
dangerous than before we had
air conditioning," McCollum
said, noting that he is not an
expert on the matter.
A Foster product is being
used to eliminate and prevent
mold, Dees said, explaining that
much work remains.


KEVIN J. SHUTII/News-Sun
Donald Schnoor puts a toy car in place on his portion of a scale railroad display that he and other mem-
bers of the Sebring Model Train Club are assembling today for a show open to the public this weekend.


Model train show on schedule


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING - They'll be
working on the railroad all the
live-long day, today, assem-
bling 15 modules into a single
model train display.
Actually, the Sebring Model
Train Club members have spent
several hundred hours creating
their scenes - from researching
an idea to painting the figurines
and structures that bring their
imaginations to life.
"I just love doing this stuff,"


club member Donald Schnoor
said. "I'm 73. I had my first
train set when I was 8 or 9 years
old."
The club invites the public to
visit the Knights of Columbus
Hall in Sebring, where they can
watch a pair of trains traverse a
12-by-32-feet display com-
posed of 15 modules created
individually by the members.
"It's up to everybody's tal-
ent," Schnoor said. "There will
be a circus scenario, farm,
freight, city."


The circus scene is his.
Having spent 200-300 hours
on it, Schnoor said one has to
look close at a landscape to see
how its creator's personality
comes out, how one adds little
touches to create a realistic
scene.
In his carnival, set among
rolling hills on a clear day,
Schnoor points to a man who
has the dubious task of scoop-
ing poop behind a pair of ele-
phants being let to the big top.
See TRAIN, page 7A


"I leave such opinions to the
environmental consultants,"
Kevin Taylor said, explaining
that before Harder Hall opens
its doors itwill have to submit
to various air and mold tests.
"Doing construction in a build-
ing 'E: Ithllut AC, of course
you i g-Iingi to have .nioisture
in the air. That's what air condi-
tioners do, they pull moisture
from the air."
Taylor noted that McCollum,
an attorney, represents a former
Joran contractor in a wrongful
termination suit brought against
the company.
According to Circuit Court


records, Gary Puckett and
Associates and Gary Puckett
(individually) filed suit against
Joran seeking damages for
breach of contract, conversion
of computer and software, and
slander.
"I would have been con-
cerned about that mold anu
about bat guano in the attic,"
McCollum said Tuesday. "No
matter what, as a member of the
public and as someone who
wants to go to the hotel when it
opens to see how it turns out, I
would have been worried about
those issues."

Vann gets life



for robbery

Pleas for misled teen taken in

account; eligible for parole after

40 years
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Armanda Vann raised her children - seven
boys and five girls - in a neighborhood where young men are
more likely to go to prison than graduate from high school.
One of those seven sons was all set to graduate high school
earlier this year before he became messed up with the wrong
crowd. Now he's headed to prison.
Pleas by family and youth leaders for 18-year-old Robert
Lee Vann failed to prevent a life sentence Wednesday.
"Vann was always one of our best kids," Christopher Tress,
director of ministry with Urban Youth Impact, said. "He's now
an example of what can happen."
Circuit Judge Olin Shinholser sentenced Vann to life for his
part in the January 2005 armed robbery of SouthTrust Bank in
Avon Park. However, Shinholser held out hope of parole in 40
years, with good behavior.
Vann publicly apologized for his part in the robbery,
acknowledged that he hurt other people, but asked them to for-
give him and give him a second chance on life.
"If I had a chance to take back what I did, I would," he said.
He pledged to spend his time in prison trying to bring as
many convicts to Christ as he could.
Shinholser said Vann was different from his codefendants,
all of whom had long criminal records. But Shinholser did not
believe Vann could be rehabilitated. None of the defendants, as
he saw it, took the trial seriously.
He sentenced Vann to five years each for burglary of a con-
veyance and grand theft of a conveyance, and to time served
for resisting officers without violence. All sentences will run
concurrently.

Permit pulled
for repair on

.hotel .......

S^t`lBR~' G- Just two
days before the Sebring
Code Enforcement Board's
$250 daily fine was to go in
effect, The Nan-Ces-O-Wee
Hotel Corporation secured a
repair permit for the build-
ing at 139 N. Ridgewood
Drive.
At the Nov. 22 meeting,
the board said the fine
would begin tolling
Thursday if they didn't see
action taken to make repairs
that the board said are nec-
essary for pedestrian safety.
Just north of the Circle,
portions of the sidewalk in
front of the condemned
building are cordoned off.
The board said the area
receives a high volume of
foot traffic.
Valid for one year, the
permit request cited repair-
ing a roof damaged by fire,
fixing broken glass and
painting the window frames,
reinforcing a balcony,
removing all air condition-
ing units, and repairing the
front corner of the building,
which sustained lightning
damage.
The permit cost $92 and
Lloyd Edward Chisolm Jr.,
Orange Park, is the contrac-
tor. Work must begin within
90 days of issuance or the
permit is rendered void.


Volunteers prepare for homeless survey


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Unity Church
was a beehive of activity
Wednesday morning as volun-
teers from the church, the
Highlands County Housing
Office and Homeless Coalition,
and clients from Ridge Area
Arc and Visions ADT, all gath-
ered to create toiletry bags to
give out to the homeless.
The bags act as an induce-
ment to get people who are
without homes to take part in an
upcoming "Point in Time" sur-
vey.
The survey, to begin Jan. 6, is
a systematic attempt to account
for every homeless person in
Highlands County.
It is actually being conducted
for the Florida Heartland rural
counties, The Homeless
Continuum of Care, which
comprises Highlands, DeSoto,
Glades, Hardee, Hendry and
Okeechobee counties.
Penny Phillipi, of the coun-
ty's housing office, expects to


have all six counties counted
within one week. That is how
long it took last year.
Given the difficulty in locat-
ing the homeless, that brief
period of time is truly amazing,
Phillipi said.
It is the result of much pre-
planning, and scientific method,
she added.
For example, with the survey
still more than a month away,
training sessions for the can-
vassers are already under way,
and the volunteers Wednesday
had a significant number of the
give-away packs ready for dis-
tribution before the end of the
day.
Local businesses and service
agencies donated $25,000
worth of items like hand soap,
shampoo, toothpaste and combs
to put into the packets. Wal-
Mart provided lunches for the
volunteers.
The annual survey is com-
pletely voluntary. It receives no
public funding 'what-so-ever.
It is, however, required if a

homeless coalition is to later
receive public funding through
grant money.
The idea, Phillipi explained,
is to prove to funding agencies
that a homeless problem exists
in an area in the first place.

demonstrated through the sur-
vey, some funding does become
available.
Based on its past work, the
Highlands County Homeless
Coalition, has recently received
several grants, one of which has
allowed it to hire a full time
worker, something it did not
have before.
The first survey was conduct-
ed in 2001. Only six volunteers
helped collect the data.
Since then, as awareness has


spread, more and more volun-
teers have signed up. Last year
35 people helped; some in the
field, others doing tasks such as
creating the packets.
Sub-committees work to
recruit volunteers, create the
give-away toiletry bags, or map
the county based on informa-
tion from law enforcement
agencies and social workers,
who help locate homeless popu-
lations.
Survey takers attend training
sessions in their respective
counties on how to conduct the
survey itself.
According to Cameron
Barnard, who coordinated the
survey last year, about 3,000
homeless people were counted
in Highlands County in January,
2005.
That compares to a
Department of Children and
Families recent report that stat-
ed there are 52,500 people
throughout Florida who are
without a place to sleep on any
given night.
There is still time to volun-
teer. For more information call
Penny Phillipi or Carmen
Miranda at the Highlands
County Housing Office. The
number is 402-6925.

Police

v' Highlands County report


Correctional
officer charged
with DUI
AVON PARK - A local
woman who serves as a cor-
rectional officer was arrested
and charged last week with
driving under the influence at
three times the legal limit.
Kimberly Rose Surrency,
49, of Avon Park was arrested
on Nov. 23 after Avon Park
police received a call about a
possible impaired driver.
According to arrest reports,
she works at Avon Park
Correctional Institution as a
correctional officer.
An officer found her white
2002 Lincoln four-door at
6:58 p.m. Nov. 23, driving 20
mph in a 35 mph zone on
North Lake Avenue at Isis
Drive.
The car was moving from
the center lane to the edge of
the road, back and forth,
arrest reports said. The front
fender had a signal light
hanging down from the origi-
nal spot where it normally
sits.
According to reports,
Surrency had her 5-year-old
granddaughter in the car with
her, without a proper safety
seat, and a mixed drink of
bourbon in the center console.
The officer also smelled
liquor coming from Surrency,
reports said. She allegedly
failed a field sobriety test,
and was arrested, as well as
cited for failure to maintain a
single lane.
A friend arrived to take
care of the child for the night
and the car was parked at a
nearby garage for safe keep-
ing.
At the Highlands County
Jail, an intoxilizer test
showed a .310 and .304 blood
alcohol level.

Isasi charged
with threat .
against officer,
aggravated
assault
LAKE PLACID - When
a deputy arrived to a domes-
tic dispute early Monday
morning, he found an irate
man in a red shirt standing in
the road.
Later identified as Henry
Isasi, 30, of Lake Placid, he


approached the Highlands
County sheriff's deputy's car.
Having been warned the man
had a knife, the deputy
ordered Isasi to the ground,
but he wouldn't comply.
Instead, reports said, he
began yelling at the officer,
saying the officer could not
tell him what to do and would
have to kill him rather than
take him to jail.
Isasi allegedly attempted to
punch the officer with a
closed fist. The officer
stepped out of his way and
took him to the ground,
scraping his own elbow in the
process. A second deputy
arrived and assisted in
restraining Isasi.
A 29-year-old female vic-
tim had contacted the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office before they arrived.
She and Isasi had an argu-
ment. She threatened to call
police if he didn't calm down
because, allegedly, he was
drunk and violent.
He allegedly pulled out a
small pocket knife and began
threatening her with it. When
he heard her tell 911 dis-
patchers that, he reportedly
put it away and said he was
only playing.
Deputies attempted to read
him his rights, but he would
not cooperate, reports said.
Allegedly, he threatened to
kill the deputy and his family
when he got out of jail, and
said his family was wealthy

a funeral home?


When choosing a funeral home you can compare costs,
you can compare facilities, you can compare staff.

But the most important factor to weigh is the service.

After all, that's what you will truly appreciate and remember longest.

Heartland Christian and Hill-Gustat sweep VFW essay contest


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Two schools
swept the Veterans of Foreign
Wars local essay contests spon-
sored by Post 4300.
The contests are part of the
VFW's commitment to educa-
tion, and an effort made by the
*group, "to sell this community
that we have good kids,"
Ladies Auxiliary President
Sandra Kicklighter said.
Sixteen Heartland Christian
School students entered the
"Voice of Democracy" contest,
open to students in ninth
through 12th grades.
Amanda Livingston, Kaleb
Cord and Kim Harbaugh placed
first, second and third respec-
tively.
Three Hill-Gustat Middle
School students won the
"Patriot Pen" contest, open to


students in fifth through eighth
grades.
Suzannah Beiner, Devki
Patal and Adam Younes placed
first, second and third, respec-
tively. Adam was not able to
attend the award ceremony.
The high school students
wrote essays discussing
American freedoms, especially
as they related to the student's
life.
In addition to writing the
essays, the students had to sub-
mit a tape recording of them-
selves reading their essay aloud.
None could be over three min-
utes long.
The middle school students
wrote about people they consid-
ered true American heroes and
why they thought so.
Judges were members of Post
4300.
The two first place essays

tears from his eyes, following Suzzanah Beiner's

carried off the field of battle.


will move on to
the district level
of VFW compe-
tition.
Should the
students win at
that level, they
will proceed to
the state level,
and ultimately,
could compete at
the national
level.
For winning at
the local level,
each student
received a check:
First place, $100;
second place
$50; and third
place, $25.
At the national
level, the first
place prizes


become substantial. The win-
ning writer of the "Voice of
Democracy" contest will win a
$25,000 scholarship. The win-
ning writer of the "Patriot Pen"
essay contest will win a
$10,000 scholarship.
All of the students focused
on the sacrifices made by mem-
bers of the military and their
families. Some students wrote
about the country's military
heroes throughout history,
while others directly addressed
the dangers faced by forces
today.
When the students spoke of
American freedoms they spoke
thankfully, both for the freedom
itself, and for the sacrifice of
the people who protected them.
Kaleb, for example, wrote
about the freedoms that affect
him the most: Freedom of reli-
gion, freedom of speech, the
freedom to choose where he
wants to go to school, and the
freedom to choose whom he
would like to marry.
Devki reminded her readers
of the courage it takes for a per-
son to simply sign up for mili-
tary duty, even before the
greater courage needed to actu-
ally fight.
She paid tribute to her uncle,
Chirag Patal, who is still in the
army, and just recently returned
from Iraq.
Suzannah, whose first place
essay contained gripping
descriptions, explained her
style.
"Usually when I was reading
and watching the news, what I
saw was so touching, I thought
it would be a lot better to try
and touch the reader too; to get
to the reader's heart."


Who are today's patriots?


By SUZANNAH BEINER
His body was dragged off the
battlefield in a stretcher by
pararescue. Crimson red blood
trickled down his head from
enemy fire. His hands hung
limp at his side. He was rushed
to the hospital where the medics
tried to resiscitate'hi m Then it
w_ s over.
:Thei ,'heart irate monitor
ceased to a study beep. There
was nothing more anyone could
do for him. Nurses came and
put fresh bandages on his
wounds and cleaned the blood
stains from his head and face.
They placed him silently in the
body bag as he lay in never end-
ing sleep.
He was an American Patriot.


By AMANDA LIVINGSTON
The Declaration of
Independence was written on
July 4, 1776; this was the start
of our lives, fortunes and our
sacred honor. Then in 1941
Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke of
the four kinds of freedoms that
we were fighting for in World
War II: Freedom of speech and
expression, freedom of wor-
ship, freedom from want and
freedom from fear.
On Jan. 20, 2005, President
George Bush stated at his
Second Inaugural Address:
"When the Declaration of
Independence was first read in
public and the Liberty Bell was
sounded in celebration, a wit-
ness said, 'It rang as if it meant
something.' In our time it
means something still.
America, in this young century,
proclaims liberty throughout all
the world and to all the inhabi-
tants thereof. Renewed in our
strength - tested, but not
weary - we are ready for the
greatest achievements in the
history of freedom."
Fortunately, we were born
into freedom, while others have
never experienced what true
freedom is. Many people don't
realize how good they have it
here in the United States of
America. Many people take for
granted the freedom to choose
where they will go to school,
where to go and eat, and where
to go to church. I have lived
here all my life and never
understood just how much free-
dom we have. Each day we are
faced with different choices that
others are never given. Could
you imagine living in a place
where you could never voice
your opinion? A place where
you couldn't write what you
thought, felt or even believed
in? I'm glad I can take this
opportunity to share with you
why our nation is so great.


Today's patriots are the men
and women who serve our
country. They are the countless
millions who fight and protect
our freedoms everyday. These
people are self-sacrificing, hon-
orable people who have left
behind their comfortable lives
to go and face an uncertain
future. Some of them come
home and others pay the ulti-
mate price of freedom.
Even when soldiers come
home and retire, they still help
out in the community. The
American Legion, for instance,
delivered grants from its
National Emergency Fund for
Hurricane . Katrina victims.
These veterans stepped up and
supported the community in


Freedom
Can you believe that in some
countries you're not allowed to
freely worship your own god?
You are told where to go to
worship and who to worship. If
you do not obey these laws, you
could be severely punished or
maybe even killed! I'm glad my
family and I have the freedom
to serve our God and to pray
freely.
Another thing to think about
is -that we don't, have all the
fighting and wars going on like
they have in other countries. So
many innocent people are dying
everyday. Can you imagine
never knowing each day
whether you will see your home
or family again? We are blessed
to know we have people fight-
ing everyday for us and our


times of crisis. Veterans are
honored for their service on
Nov. 11; a day which commem-
orates all the veterans and their
contribution to our society.
Our soldiers and veterans are
today's patriots. Without them,
this country wouldn't be as
strong and glorious as it is.
They are,.the backbone of our
nation.
Everyday, men and women
are dying for our country and
they need to be honored and
remembered as our nation's
patriots. They leave behind
spouses and children and every-
day life. To me, a soldier is
more than just a person at war,
they are supporters of our coun-
try. They are today's patriots.


country. They fight to protect
America so that we can enjoy
this freedom.
We need to remember as we
go to work, to the mall, or even
to the movies that we all have
the same rights. Here in the
United States, every American
has the right to freedom. This is
what our great nation was built
on. Wouldn't the world be a
better place if it was like this in
every country? I can not stress
enough how important it is to
be kind to one another and to be
thankful that we have so much
freedom. We need to remember
to support our troops, our presi-
dent and our great nation. Join
with me in saying I'm proud to
be an American. God Bless
America.


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Five of the six VFW essay contest finalists. They are (from left to right) Devki Patal, Suzannah Beiner,
Kim Harbaugh, Kaleb Cord, and Amanda Livingston. Kim, Kaleb and Amanda are all students at
Heartland Christian School. Devki and Suzannah attend Hill-Gustat Middle School. Adam Younes, the
sixth finalist, also attends Hill-Gustat Middle School. He was unable to take part in the award ceremony
as he had a test to take at school.


Amanda, in her first place
essay, started out with the four
basic freedoms, and then did
research on the Internet, to find
examples supporting her state-
ments.
When Amanda and Suzannah
read their winning essays at


Monday's VFW meeting, Post
Commander Carl Arthur had to
take a moment to compose him-
self at one point.
Especially following
Suzannah's reading of her
work.
Sadly, response to the contest


is not as robust as the VFW
would wish. This year, only 19
students submitted essays.
Kicklighter, one of the organ-
izers, called public and private
schools to try and raise interest,
and hopes that next year will
see a stronger response.

Hurricane Hunters improve accuracy of


By JARRETT BAKER
News-Sun
If the "Fasten Seatbelts" light
was there, it would be lit.
Flying into hurricanes poses
certain dangers and discomforts
to hurricane hunters, including
turbulence and thunderstorms,
but the data collected by mem-
bers of the United States Air
Force Reserve's 53rd Weather
Reconnaissance Squadron from
Keesler Air Force Base in
Biloxi, Miss., is invaluable to
meteorologists.
The Hurricane Hunters were
the first to report Hurricane
Wilma's rapid drop in sea-level
pressure to 884 millibars, the
lowest ever recorded in the
Atlantic Basin, before the storm
decimated the Yucatan
Peninsula and south Florida
earlier this year.
"Flying into hurricanes is
like (driving into) a 200 mph
car wash," said Capt. Byron
Hudgins, a Hurricane Hunter
pilot.
Without the reservists, who
fly in and out of a storm for four
or five hours at a time, the
National Hurricane Center's


VANN
Continued from 1A
Assistant State Attorney Joan
Hughes, the trial prosecutor,
said Vann should go to prison
for threatening the lives of sev-
eral bank employees with a
Tech 9 mm Intertech pistol with
removable 37-round magazine.
However, she asked for a
robbery sentence of 20-25 years
after hearing testimony in his
favor. She learned on Tuesday
from his probation officer that
Vann was a good kid with good
grades and an after-school job.
She noted that he also
showed no hostility during the
verdict reading, unlike other
defendants.
"I feel very bad for Robert
Vann," she said. "The maxi-
mum throw-away life sentence


ability to project the track of a
hurricane would be less effec-
tive.
"The Hurricane Hunters have
been an integral part in the
advancement of computer mod-
eling," said Bill Cottrill, weath-
er station manager at Florida
State University.
Data recovered by Hurricane
Hunter aircraft has improved
the accuracy of hurricane fore-
casting by about 25 percent,
according to a fact sheet
released by the Air Force
Reserve.
Satellites can look inside a
storm, Cottrill said, but they
can't provide detailed pressure
readings and weather observa-
tions like the Hurricane Hunters
can.
The squadron flies 10
Lockheed Martin WC-130J air-
craft, a version of the C-130
cargo plane.
The plane is almost identical
to a C-130 and is not specially
modified for the extreme condi-
tions the aircraft often flies in.
The only differences are the
weather equipment and a small
metal guard at the base of the


is not appropriate for (him)."
Defense witnesses said Vann
should be punished, but not for
life.
Sebring psychologist Dr.
Bruce Borkosky said Vann
would respond well to rehabili-
tation. Chris Tress, his wife
Colleen, Vann's classmate
Faustin Mesidor, and former
counselor Andy Kasanicky all
worked with Vann through
Urban Youth Impact.
The Tresses live on the same
street as Vann's family, and said
he was one of the program's
most promising kids. He drifted
away in August 2004 and start-
ed hanging out with Samuel
Etheredge, whose brother was
reportedly dating one of Vann's
sisters. Soon after, he met code-
fendants Stepfone Vadle Buckle
Jr. and Ednol Antonio Hanna
III.


propellers that protects them
from hail.
The backbone of a hurricane
hunting mission is the WC-
S130J's Improved Weather
Reconnaissance System.
External sensors measure
data such as temperature,
humidity and barometric pres-
sure that are monitored by the
Aerial Reconnaissance Weather
Officer at a computer station
inside the plane. The aircraft is
also equipped with three radars,
one aimed forward, one aimed
to the rear and one looking
down into the storm.
"The accuracy (the sensors)
provide is just terrific," said
Peter Simmons, a Lockheed
Martin communications manag-
er.
Improved avionics and a
heads-up display, which allows
the pilots to see their instrument
readings without looking down,
have made flying into hurri-
canes easier.
The weather officer is in con-
stant contact with the National
Hurricane Center in Miami,
relaying data and in-flight

It was during this time,
Vann's mother said, he was
arrested on a misdemeanor
weapons charge, his first arrest.
He was still on probation during
the Jan. 7 robbery.
Mesidor said Vann, a year
younger than him, chose to take
part in a mission trip to the
Dominican Republic at age 13,
something Mesidor lacked the
courage to do. Kasanicky said
Vann was very helpful and
good-natured on the trip.
Public Defender Steve
Knittle said his office plans to
appeal. Vann may not have
received a fair trial when tried
together with defendants who
had long criminal records,
which is why Knittle had
advised Vann to plead and
avoid trial. Vann instead lis-
tened to his cohorts.

"It's sort of like instant mes-

Dropsondes, 16-inch-long card-

wind speed and direction as

SDropsondes, Govan said, are
always dropped in the eye wall

addition to locations away from
the eye.

This weekend's feature train

today. Another system will trigger rain and mountain snow showers over southern parts of the Rockies, while snow
showers occur over northern areas and into the northern Plains. Meanwhile, heavy morning rain will end over
northern Maine as a strong storm system moves further into Quebec. A cold wind will blow around the system and
over the Northeast and Great Lakes; as a result, snow will fall downwind of the lakes.

Good versus evil


APHS senior creates a monumental battle


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK
dam Singletary is a sin-
gular young man.
A senior at Avon Park
High School, he just completed
the first volume of a science
fiction trilogy.
The concluding two volumes
are alive in his head. He is cap-
turing the words on paper as
fast as he can.
"It just kind of came out of
me," he said. "It just flowed
out."


He started work toward the
end of December'last year. The
first volume took about five
months to write.
He said he was driven, scrib-
bling in every free moment.
"I actually got into trouble
in class once, because I was
writing," he said with a rueful
grin.
His epic tale, a battle
between good versus evil, is
called "The Order of Atlantis."
The first volume is sub-titled
"The Rise of The Shadows." It
will be followed by "War of


the Shadow," and completed
with "The Final Stand."
"I have the whole thing in
my head, right down to how
the last battle takes place," he
said. Good wins out in the end,
he added.
Singletary wouldn't reveal
many details of the plot.
He did say the hero, Colin
Banks, is a high school student
who has led a normal life
before the story begins. Then
events change his life forever,
and he discovers he has some
special powers. More impor-


-, I:







ALICE FLETCHER/News-Sun
Aion Park High School senior Adam Singletar% works on his second book of a irilog) from the comforts
of his liing room.


'I prayed about it and that led me

to this. I finished my first novel.

Everybody who had read it, liked

it.'
ADAM SINGLETARY, Avon Park High School senior


tantly, it is up to him to save
the Earth.
He has to battle an It, a crea-
ture so evil no one knows its
name. Shadows, which are
actual things, do the evil It's
bidding and have to be fought
against as well.
The struggle takes place in
ordinary places, like Highlands
County, and in exotic ones as
well. Some of the action takes
place in the Mariana Trench.
Out in the Pacific Ocean, it is
the deepest spot on the planet.
Colin Banks is a 16-year-
high school junior at the start
of the story. He plays vibes in
the school band, and has a cir-
cle of friends, two of whom
become important characters in
their own right.
Singletary said quite a few
of his fictional characters are
composites of people he
knows, and some are totally
figments of his imagination.
One character, however, is
drawn from a friend in real
life. His classmate, Alice
Fletcher, becomes Alice
Johnson in the novel.
Fletcher wasn't quite sure of
the honor at first.
"I'm not .1ll tht nice (in the
book)," she said. "But I'm


there."
She then hurried to add that
Alice Johnson improves as the
story unfolds, becoming one of
the good guys.
Singletary explained he had
inspiration from many sources.
Video games like Kingdom
Hearts, J.R.R. Tolkien, and
Robert Jordan were major
influences, as were the Harry
Potter books.
He hadn't thought much
about being a writer, before
inspiration took hold of his
imagination.
"I was going to be an arche-
ologist," he said. But he found
himself wondering if that was
truly his path.
"I prayed about it and that
led me to this," he said. Then
added, with a touch of wonder
in his voice, " I finished my
first novel. Everybody who has
read it, liked it. I don't know if
they were just being nice, but
they all said it."
He's considering applying to
the University of South Florida
because it has a good writing
program.
The book is now being proof
read, and sent out to publish-
ers. In the mean time, ...
Singletary keeps writing away.

Prosecutors argue for execution


of killer of
By MIKE SCHNEIDER
Associated Press Writer
SARASOTA - The man
convicted of abducting and
killing 11-year-old Carlie
Brucia knew exactly what he
was doing and should be exe-
cuted, a prosecutor told jurors
Thursday as the trial's penalty
phase neared an end.
Joseph Smith was not
impaired by a mental disorder
or drugs when he murdered
Carlie Brucia since he was
clear-headed enough to recount
his crimes to his brother and get
rid of evidence, prosecutor
Debra Riva told jurors during
closing arguments of Smith's
penalty phase. The crimes were
not accidental, either, she
added.
"He chose to prey upon a
child for sexual gratification,"
Riva said. "Is this someone who
is substantially impaired? All of


S11-year-old girl


his acts were toward getting
away with the crime."
Riva's argument was briefly
interrupted when a spectator
yelled "Let's string him up
now." Officers 'quickly pulled
him from the courtroom.
Further details were not imme-
diately available.
Riva dismissed defense argu-
ments thatjurors should consid-
er Smith's drug addiction,
chronic pain and depression,
saying they didn't justify the
girl's death by strangulation.
Riva, holding a photo of a smil-
ing Carlie, also said witnesses
who testified to Smith's close
relationship with his daughters
and a love for animals didn't
know the true man.
"The real Joe Smith is
reflected in the video. The real
Joe Smith left Carlie in those
woods," Riva said.. "The real
Joe Smith, for his crimes,

RALEIGH, N.C. - An
inmate set to become the
1,000th person executed in the
U.S. since capital punishment
was reinstated visited with rela-
tives Thursday, including the
two sons who were with him
when he gunned down their
mother and her father in a rage.

time since he was sent to death
row in 1994.
If Boyd, 57, is executed by
injection at 2 a.m. Friday, two
relatives of his victims will
watch him die through the thick
glass panes separating the
viewing room from the stark
execution chamber at Central
Prison.

deserves the death penalty."
Defense attorneys were to
make their arguments later
Thursday.
Jurors were then expected
later to begin considering a rec-
ommendation for Circuit Judge
Andrew Owens, who ultimately
will decide a sentence. Under
state law, Otvens must give
great weight to the jury's rec-
ommendation, which doesn't
have to be unanimous.
Earlier in the day, Owens
decided Smith would not read a
statement in front of jurors
admitting to his crimes unless
prosecutors were able to cross-
examine him, something
defense attorneys opposed.
Owens said the statement
could be made during a subse-
quent hearing when he will con-
sider the jury's recommenda-
tion.
Jurors convicted Smith on
Nov. 17 of kidnapping, sexual
battery and first-degree murder.
Carlie's murder spurred the
introduction of federal and state
legislation to crack down on
probation violators.
Smith, 39, has admitted in
taped conversations recorded in
jail that he used either heroin or
cocaine at the time he kid-
napped Carlie, whose Feb. 1,
2004, abduction received
worldwide attention since it
was captured by a security cam-
era in a car wish parking lot.

TALLAHASSEE -Ajudge
who ordered Lakeland police to
illegally release a friend's
teenage son after a drunken
driving arrest will receive a
public reprimand from the
Florida Supreme Court, the jus-
tices, decided Thursday.
The high court unanimously
approved an agreement for the
reprimand between the Florida
Judicial Qualifications Com-
mission and Circuit Judge
Dennis Maloney of Polk
County. Maloney's son was
with the driver when he was
arrested.
The seven justices, in an
unsigned opinion, cited mitigat-
ing circumstances that justified
the reprimand rather than a
more severe penalty that could
have included removal from the
bench.
"Judge Maloney has no prior
disciplinary action in his 27-
year career on the bench," the
justices wrote. "He is generally
regarded as a fair, impartial and
competent jurist."
The high court also noted
Maloney candidly testified
under oath that he was unaware
his conduct constituted a viola-
tion of state law.

Wood visits Highlands County



between stints in Uzbekistan


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - A visit to wet
Highlands County in the winter
is a change for Deborah L.
Wood, who has been in the
desert region of Uzbekistan for
the last year and a half.
She's visiting family - her
grandmother - in Sebring for a
couple of months before head-
ing back. She's also spending
time with friend of the family
and local Economic
Development Director Louise
England.
To date, Wood hasn't con-
vinced England to come back
with her to a country just north
of Afghanistan. England said
she loves Highlands County too
much to leave it, and prefers
running water. The people
Wood works with are only just
learning that water can carry
disease.
As a community impact
development coordinator with
Crosslink Development
International, Wood is helping
people in the poorest part of the
country dig wells and learn
more sanitary practices, helping
them develop so that she and
others don't have to be there.
They usually gather it in
large buckets from streams or
canals, she said, especially if a
well is too far. The way Uzbeks
cooperate to gather water is
amazing, she said.
"It helps me appreciate what
we have here," Wood said.
She decided at about age 18
she wanted to help overseas.

Uzbek men help turn a pipe down into a water well for fresh drinking water for their village. People in
western Uzbekistan will often walk far distances to heavy water buckets from streams or canals for daily
drinking water. It's hoped that new wells will entice them to use a more sanitary source.


Originally :froi :Rochester,
N.Y., she has a bachelor'ss
degree in physical therapy from
Indiana University in
Bloomington and Indianapolis,
and a master's degree from
University of North Carolina,
Chapel Hill in public health.
She'll return in January 2006 to
the town of Mangit, and vil-
lages around it, in
Karakalpakstan, the western
region within the former Soviet
Union republic.

as Wood calls her, during a river outing with her host family. Wood
said her time spent teaching Uzbeks about public health has taught
her even more about the culture and life of the people, because she


must completely immerse herself in
project to survive and thrive.

Uzhek life for the development


The area is agricultural, the
fourth largest producer of cot-
ton in the world, but at a cost. In
the 1960s, when the Soviet gov-
ernment decided to grow cotton
and rice in the arid region, it
provided irrigation by diverting
rivers that drained into the Aral
Sea.
The sea shrunk, losing as
much surface area as the state
of Massachusetts. One fishing
village on its coast dried up
when the sea left. The country
began having even more prob-
lems when the Russians left in
1991. This year, rioting flared
up around Andijon in May, and
Toshkent, the capital, received
terrorist threats in June. Both
cities are in eastern Uzbekistan.
In the less-populated regions,
people struggle with poverty,
.disease, alcohol or drug abuse,
aitn ihe soclIl probleris," that
coQiNwtld i1l three.
'LtI"e' lived a blessed life,"
Wood said. "I want to give
back."
The team has the tasks of
improving public health
through water safety courses
and drilling wells, helping fam-
ilies deal with or overcome
domestic issues and addictions,
teaching medical knowledge to
the nurses there, and working
with local schools to continue
health education.


Any village that wants a
well, for example, must get its
people educated on.the benefits
of clean water.
Some of these programs have
made great strides with simple
solutions, Wood said. Suspend
a plastic water bottle with a
hole near the cap on strings
alongside suspended soap out-
side a bathroom, and people
will wash their hands more
often.
When asked what keeps her
in Uzbekistan, Wood said its the
adventure and the friendships
she's made.
The Uzbeks have great hos-
pitality, are extremely bright,
love to learn and love to dance.
Wood has become best friends
with her host family's daughter-
in-law Dildora. Both she and
her ,twp .children, Guzal and

Domestic swindlers

Congress and the Pentagon should protect members of
the armed forces from unscrupulous investment and
insurance companies.
The least the Pentagon and Congress can do for U.S.
military personnel is to protect them from domestic
swindlers before they are shipped off to fight in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
A new report by the Government Accountability
Office says that service members are routinely targets of
financial exploitation by unscrupulous investment and
insurance companies. The agency is urging Congress to
enact protections that will shield soldiers from unneces-
sary insurance policies and dubious investment products
that are often hawked right on their bases.
The GAO investigators have documented a variety of
ways that tens of thousands of naive military personnel
are fleeced. One investment product known as a contrac-
tual plan is almost exclusively sold to military personnel
because the civilian world understands it is a bad deal.
Under this type of mutual fund, the buyer pays monthly
contributions over 15 years, with half of the first year's
investment going entirely toward sales charges. The
GAO found a high lapse rate for these plans.
Life insurance companies also prey on vulnerable sol-
diers. The military already offers its soldiers $250,000
worth of coverage for about $16 per month, with the
ability to sign up for more at about the same rates. But
on some bases, insurance agents who appear to have the
imprimatur of the military use high-pressure and mis-
leading sales pitches to sell supplemental policies.
Soldiers are persuaded to deduct $100 per month from
their modest salaries for added coverage of $30,000 or
so. It's promoted as an investment and savings plan, but
investigators found that most of those policies lapsed
within three years, well before there was any cash value.
SEven when the Pentagon enacts rules to protect serv-
ice members from predatory practices, unscrupulous
insurance agents have found a way to slither around
them. For example, military personnel are given a week
before a payroll deduction for an insurance premium
becomes effective so they have time to reconsider.
Investigators found insurance companies were sidestep-
ping the waiting period by arranging to obtain the pre-
mium through a savings account. The soldier's. payroll
deduction was made to appear like a sayings plan.
tLegislation has passed the House-with strong bipaEti- J
. an support that would address a number of these issues:
a Senate committee held a hearing on the GAO findings
this month. With so many soldiers facing injury and
death in Iraq, the last thing they need to worry about is
whether they were conned at home.


An editorial excerpt from the St. Petersburg Times.

Some pictures may include

as grandma's secret pumpkin

Football season is at its peak,

the cousins (if you're a kid),
visiting with aunts and uncles,
brothers and sisters, moms and
dads, catching up on what's
been going on in each others'
lives.
In some families, holidays
can bring out the worst behav-
ior, due to substance abuse or
addictions. It's a hard thing to
deal with, no doubt, and doesn't
help with the holiday mood.
I'm sitting here trying to
remember the last good holiday
season and it's been awhile, due
to deaths in the family, other
issues here and there.
I am thankful though that my
mom is still around. She's had a
lot of stuff to deal with and
many times has cried out to the
Lord and He's kept her going in
spite of it all. She is a treasure
you won't find in a department

And, of course, I'm grateful
for my brother and sister, no

you, like family. My nephews
and niece and great nephew and
niece are also a joy.

Sometimes I find myself
dreading it only because I can't
.recapture the joys of holidays
past. But I'm trying to change
my perspective because they
only come once a year. You
don't see "all the family" all
year long and most do not cook
the "specialty dishes" except on
holidays.
We've got 363 days a year to
cope and deal with the stresses
of life. Can't we "turn it off"
those two days and enjoy what-
ever the Lord has blessed us
with?
Another thing that could get
me to feeling "blue" is buying
gifts. What should I buy for
whom? What if they don't like
it? What if I don't have the
money to buy it? And on and on
it goes. Thank God for gift cer-
tificate cards, huh?
I refuse to let the holidays get
me down this year. I can't
change what's happened this
past year, or the circumstances,
but with God's help I can
change me. We can't change
people, but we can change how
their behavior effects us.
I hope and pray this year if
you are looking at the holidays
with a "can't wait until they're
over" frame of mind that you
find time to pray and ask God
for an upgrade on your "vision"
so you can enjoy this "once a
year joyous season" with a
heavenly perspective.

Big oil rip offs

have history

Editor:
In response to Bob Bullard
thinking about asking the State
Attorney General's office, to
check out why gas prices are
higher in Highlands County:
What took our county offi-
cials so long before they got off
their duff and decided to do
something?
The big oil corporations
have been ripping off the con-
sumers for years.
Remember back in 1974
when the big oil corporations
created a false oil shortage
scare and jacked up the price of
fuel to stuff their corporate
pockets, while our government
leaders looked the other way?
This is another side of capi-
talism - a government of the
rich, for the rich and by the
rich.
Don H. Streeter
Sebring

It's time to ask

questions
Editor:
I want to take this opportuni-
ty to thank Bob Bullard for
addressing several points that I
brought forward in my letter to
the editor (News-Sun) Nov. 20,
about what appeared to be arti-
ficially high gasoline prices in
Highlands. County.
Mr. Bullard proposes to take
these concerns to the State's
Attorney Office for investiga-
tion. Thank you sir! I am sure
that all of your constituents will
thank you!
It is distressing that our local
paper did publish these con-
cerns (Nov. '20 issue) as
expressed by me; but
Highlands Today did not see fit


Tuesday night I was working
on building the last page when
Daniel, my 9-year-old, came to
me and asked if there was any-
thing he could do to help.
Bless their hearts, my chil-
Sdren have grown up around this
newspaper and are always look-
ing for things to do "to help." Of
course, those offers of help come
between visits with the press
guys, cleaning Miss Cindy's
work station (she pays) or look-
ing up something on the
Internet.
I had some papers for Daniel
to file and after explaining to him
the simplest way to do it, he took
on the job and was done in a mat-
ter of minutes.
He came and took a piece of
paper off my desk and went to
the conference room, returning
a few minutes later. He looked at
me, handed me the paper and
said, "Mom, I want to apply for a
job."
I took the paper, printed in
purple ink (my favorite color),
from him. It read, verbatim:
"Aplacashon form
Name: Daniel S. Washington
do I want this job
E Yes 0 No
do I do drugs or ever will
Q Yes E No
will I listen to you
N Yes O No"
He included his phone num-
ber on the paper, but I'm never
home to answer the phone so I'll
just leave that off.
Anyway, I read the application
with a smile and joy in my heart,
then put it aside. He went on to
something else.
I finished the page and we left.
On the way home I noticed that
Daniel was unusually, quiet. I fig-
ured it was just a matter of him
being tired. I had also had a long


was the best person for it. He
had grown up around it and
knew what it took.
The curiosity got the best of
me and asked him just what job it
was that he was applying for. He
said he wanted to write stories.
What kind of stories? "Oh," he
said, "I can write stories about
the teacher of the year, things
our chorus is doing, stuff that's
going on at school ... you know,
stuff."
OK, at least now I had an idea
of what he was wanting to do.
I asked him if could meet
deadlines. He asked me what a
deadline was. I explained that if I
needed a story by 3 p.m., he had
to have it to me by that time.
That's a deadline.
"Well, that might be a little
hard because I'm in school until
2," he said.
Oh my, he's bright and I'm
caught totally off guard. That
doesn't happen often.
I said that was fine, I wouldn't
set an, unrealistic deadline.
Jokingly, I asked if he could have
something to me by Thursday.
He said sure and went back to
the living room.
A few minutes later I sat down
in the chair next to him and was
amazed. He had taken a note-
book and written a full page on
things that his chorus will be
doing next week. A few mis-
spelled words here and there,
but overall he did a real good job.
I suggested that he let it sit for
a little while, maybe overnight,
then come back to it and see if
there is anything he wanted to
change.
Nothing more was said. As he
went to bed he gave me the usual
good night kiss and thanked me.
"For what?" I asked.
"For giving me a job."

Wood Haven

steps up to help

Editor:
Once again, it is the season
for Wood Haven Estates resi-
dents to help support our local
Salvation Army in their work to
feed the homeless and others
who are unable to provide their
families holiday festivities.
Every year at this time we
ask our residents of Wood
Haven, as well as those who
live outside the park to please
open their hearts and wallets in
this worthy humane cause.
My job is to consolidate the
money gifts and order the
turkeys in advance. Captain
Mary Holmes has asked that
the turkeys be delivered Dec.
19 this year to Salvation's
headquarters. Our goal is 60


turkeys. The order has been
placed at Wal-Mart.
Last year, Wood Haven
Estates' residents and those
who live outside the park con-
tributed and helped The
Salvation Army in feeding
1,469 individuals!
I know there are many very
needy causes to give to this
year and in 2004 as well. We
give to their needs, thanking
God Almighty we have some-
thing to share. Many will awak-
en on Christmas day with little,
less or none.
The human comfort zone of
a good, hot nourishing meal is
not hard to shop for. One size
fits all!
In conclusion, my sincere
heartfelt thanks for the gift and
the giver. God knows we do the
best we can.

be planted in the house of the
Lord shall flourish in the courts
of our God. They shall bring

be fat and flourishing. To shew

the Lord is upright. He is my
rock and there is no unright-
eousness in Him."
The legacy we leave when
we depart this world, probably
will not be turkeys. However, I
sincerely believe when we give
to help others, we will leave a
lasting memory of good will
and role modeling for those
who follow.
We are all God's children.

On Sunday I drove up to
visit Jean Claude Meus, my
future brother-in-law, in prison.
He is doing as well as can be
expected in the setting he is in.
I say future brother-in-law but
he is already a beloved member
of my family.
Sitting and talking to him in
a room full of others that have
been convicted of heinous
crimes is still unreal. Even
where he is, Jean Claude has
managed to stay the good per-
son he has always been. The
respect he has from not only
the prisoners but also the
guards is very evident. I was
told by one of the guards that
Jean Claude is "our good one."
The local media has always
been good in printing what was
happening in this case but
sadly, it took the Jennifer Porter
case to get this case the nation-

Wednesday night when we
came home from church, he sat
down, picked up his story and
started rewriting it, making his
letters neater so they are easier
to read. He asked questions
about getting it into the comput-
er so I can find it.
"Will it have my name on it?"
I told him I didn't know. It
would probably run on the Chalk
Talk page, or maybe as a brief.
We'd just have to see. But even if
it didn't have his nameon it, he
could take pride in knowing that
he'd had his first story printed.
I have always said I'll do any-
thing I can to keep young people
interested in the written word.
Journalism is such an exciting
job. It may not pay the best, but
it's exciting. You never do, or
write about, the same thing two
days in a row.
How long his interest in writ-
ing stories lasts no one really
knows, but at least he's interest-
ed and the way I look at it, it may
help him some with his writing
and English skills.
I'm excited about the possibil-
ities, and besides, he's only ask-
ing for $1 a day "and if that's too
much Mom, we can talk about it,
OK."
I don't have any jobs open for
him, but he can continue to be
my little helper and he.can write
stories about his school and cho-
rus. I'll even put him on
Mommy's payroll, I can afford $1
a day, especially if that means
helping with the chores.

talk with him after picking him
up from school about tearing the
leaves off of one of his nanny's
plants. Maybe, I thought, he is
just thinking about what our talk.
A mile outside of Avon Park,
he leaned up and whispered in
my ear, "When do I get an inter-
view?"
I guess he knows the impor-
tance of interviews since I've had
several in the past few months
trying to fill positions (all but one
of which are filled, thank you).
I told him we could do it as
soon as we got home. Again, he
got quiet. I never heard another
sound from him until we pulled
up in the garage and he said,
"Mom, can I go on in and get
ready?"
He was more serious about
this than I thought.
I said sure and then waited for
a while until his sister was done
talking to her dad on the cell
phone. She doesn't like to be left
alone outside, so I stood in the
garage while she stepped outside
and finished her call.
When I got inside, Daniel was
pacing down the hall, from the
living room to my room. I told
him to come on and we'd talk.

Where does all the money go for traffic citations?


I hope that you all
had a wonderful
Thanksgiving holi-
day and didn't have
too many problems
on the roadways.
In a recent article I
had mentioned that
$2 of each ticket writ-
ten went to the origi-
nating agency for H
officer training. Well, HO
then I started getting
telephone calls con- J.p.
cerning where the
rest of the money
went. That brings us back to
my old friends, Florida State
Statutes, in particular section
318.
Many people don't realize
that much of what goes on in
our courts are directed by the
Florida Legislature. The monies
received from citations are
directly controlled by this group
and they give guidance to the
counties on how the money will
be broken divided.
Do you remember sitting in
school on occasion and ques-
tioning "When will I ever use
this kind of mathematics?"
Well, I have one answer for
you, the clerks at the court
house assigned to the traffic
division. These wonderful peo-
ple working under the guidance
of the Clerk of the Court are
tasked with the responsibility to
ensure that all monies received

al media coverage it needed.
What happens in courtrooms in
our local courts generally stays
within the local area whether
right or wrong. What happened
in this case in Hardee County
was totally wrong and it has
taken another tragedy for it to
be shown.
I have read where state offi-
cials involved in this case have
stated that there was no preju-
dice involved and that Jean
Claude was treated fairly. This

from traffic citations
are sent to the appro-
priate groups.
So let's get down
to the math at hand.
Many of the traffic
violations have sepa-
rate statute numbers
and these statute
numbers have their
WAY own guidelines for
INE how the money is
broken down. This
kANE in turn complicates
the question, "Where
does the money go?"
because there are hundreds of
answers (all correct) depending
on which statute you are talking
about.
According to the guidelines,
all civil penalties received by a
county court pursuant to the
provisions of this chapter shall
be distributed and paid monthly
as follows:
(1) One dollar from every
civil penalty shall be remitted to
the Department of Revenue for
deposit into the Child Welfare
Training Trust Fund for training
purposes pursuant to s. 402.40.

lived with my sister, he was
extradited to Hardee County on
a $1 million bond. When a state
official was asked at the time by
a local reporter why the bond
was so high his comment was
"because he is Haitian and a
flight risk." That comment
reeks of racism.
I must say that I have learned
a lot since this case began when
Peter Estrada, the prosecutor at
the time, signed the arrest war-
rant and Judge (Dale) Durrance
placed that $ 1 million bond on
Jean Claude.
I have learned that "innocent
before proven guilty" is a false-
hood. I have learned that by
using the "freedom of speech"
set forth in the constitution can
result in threats by elected pub-
lic officials to "keep your


deposit into the General
Revenue Fund of the state,

shown me that I would have
really liked Nona. Sisters have
that special bond where they
know each other's souls and
what is in them. Until that
chance meeting the sisters were
unaware of what had happened
with Jean Claude's case. From
what I understand, their last
contact from the state about
Jean Claude was on
Thanksgiving Day 1992 when
they were asked to appear at a
bond hearing when my sister
was trying to get the bond
reduced. They refused, stating
that Jean Claude did not belong

I hope that has cleared up this
subject (I'm confused).
I also want to mention that I
cut out over half of the guide-
lines just to give you a brief
idea of what our clerks have to
deal with. They do this each day
and ensure that at the end of the
month the thousands of dollars
collected are properly distrib-
uted. So if you are one of the
unfortunate person's that
received a citation, when you
pay the fine keep in mind the
clerks just collect the money,
they don't have anything else to
do with your citation.
Take care and remember to
drive defensively and arrive
alive.

Saturn Vue SUV headed for record sales, again


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
Just as Saturn's only sport
utility vehicle is on track to set
another annual sales record,
here comes a 2006 model with a
little more flash. It rides and
handles like a car with an
impressive fuel economy rat-
ing.
Introduced in calendar 2001,
the Vue is mildly restyled with
a new hood, grille, headlamps
and interior. But it retains the
dent-resistant plastic body pan-
els that Saturn is known for.
These panels can withstand a
grocery cart banging into them
and dings from adjacent car
doors - all without any lasting
evidence of damage.
Still, because these plastic
panels need room to expand in
the heat of a sunny summer day,
the gaps between some Vue
body panels are larger and not
as attractive as those found on
other vehicles, such as Toyotas
and Hondas.
During 2005, the Vue has
been outselling several notable
competitors, including the
Toyota RAV4, Nissan Xterra
and Hyundai Tucson SUVs.
And it's likely that the addition
of a gasoline-electric hybrid
Vue next year could boost sales
even more.
How can the neither wimpy
nor brutish Vue - which is
sold at the decidedly non-truck-
ish Saturn car brand - keep
improving its sales and getting
them near the 100,000-per-year
mark?


It's the package.
With a starting manufactur-
er's suggested retail price,
including destination charge, of
$17,990 for a base, two-wheel-
drive model with four-cylinder
engine and manual transmis-
sion, the 2006 Vue is a conve-
niently sized, five-passenger
SUV that's affordable.
Indeed, it has the lowest
MSRP-plus-destination-charge
total among all 2006 SUVs at
parent company General
Motors Corp.
Meantime, the 2006 Xterra,
which comes only with a V6,
starts at $20,530, and the 2006
Tucson starts at $18,300 for a
base, four-cylinder model.
The Vue provides good
views over traffic because of its
higher ride height, but it doesn't
sit so high off the pavement that
adults have to hoist themselves
up to get inside.
Two- and all-wheel-drive
Vues are available, and there
are two engines - a fuel-thrifty
four cylinder and a confident
V6.
Don't overlook the Vue's
status as the fifth-best gasoline-
powered SUV in fuel economy
in the 2006 model year, accord-
ing to the Environmental
Protection Agency.
When fitted with the base
four-cylinder engine and five-
speed, manual transmission, the
front-wheel-drive 2006 Vue is
rated at 23 miles a gallon in city
driving and 29 mpg on the high-
way.
A four-cylinder, two-wheel-


drive Vue with automatic is
rated lower, at 22/27 mpg.
But when a fuel-conscious
consumer gets to the point of
considering a Vue with an auto-
matic, I recommend going on
up to the Vue with the V6,
which comes only with an auto-
matic transmission.
This V6 is a Honda engine
and arguably the best perk of
the Vue. (GM and Honda
signed an unusual agreement in
1999 for this powerplant-shar-
ing, which put the Honda-engi-
neered and Honda-built 3.5-
liter V6 into the Vue starting in
the 2005 model year.)
This Honda V6 gives the Vue
very nearly the same fuel econ-
omy, overall, as the much more
anemic-feeling, GM-built four
cylinder.
Soecificallv, the Vue with V6


has a noteworthy 250 horse-
power and 242 foot-pounds of
torque while maintaining a gov-
ernment fuel economy rating of
20/28 mpg, for a combined
city/highway rating of 24 mpg.
This compares with the com-
bined city/highway rating of
24.5 mpg for the four-cylinder
Vue with automatic that gener-
ates just 143 horses and 152
foot-pounds of torque.
The test 2006 Vue; with
uplevel V6, responded readily,
and driving was pretty effort-
less. It slipped into city traffic
easily and merged aggressively
onto highways without hesitat-
ing. In fact, I found myself on
several occasions traveling
faster than I thought - once
getting up to 65 miles an hour
quite quickly on an uphill
entrance ramp to a freeway.


This V6 comes with a
smooth-shifting, five-speed
automatic transmission and
torque peaks at 4,500 rpm.
There's, no shift-it-yourself,
manumatic mode, though.
Comparatively, the Tucson's
2.7-liter V6 produces 173
horsepower and 178 foot-
pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm.
The Xterra's 4-liter V6 is more
powerful, generating 265 hors-
es and 284 foot-pounds of
torque at 4,000 rpm.
Inside, the Vue has more
moder-looking audio and ven-
tilation controls for 2006, and
plastic trim on the insides of the
doors and on the dashboards is
updated.
There was some wind-noise
from the driver door window in
the test Vue, and I heard some
road noise from the tires.


The 2006 Saturn Vue is neither wimpy, nor brutish. Whatever the attraction is, sales continue to
improve, taking it near the 100,000-per-year mark.


But it rode and handled like a
.car, with only vibrations - not
jolts - coming through, even
on dirt roads.
At times, though, the steering
felt light and a bit disconnected.
In an unusual offering among
lower-priced, compact SUVs,
all Vue models now come stan-
dard with the OnStar emer-
gency notification system with
a free, one-year subscription.
OnStar notifies emergency per-
sonnel if a vehicle is involved
in a crash that's severe enough
to deploy the front airbags.
Also new for 2006: All Vues
come with standard remote key-,
less entry, cruise control and
power windows, door locks and
outside mirrors.
I just wish the rear seat cush-
ion was updated, too. It's flat,
feels thin and doesn't extend far
enough to provide the support
for my thighs that I like. In
addition, I could easily see
components of the re~r seats
where the cushions join.
Rear seatbacks are split into
one-third and two-thirds sec-
tions that fold down. Maximum
cargo space is a commendable
63.8 cubic feet.
The Vue lags in some safety
equipment. Hyundai's Tucson,
for example, has standard cur-
tain airbags and antilock brakes,
among other things, on all mod-
els.
But on four-cylinder Vues,
antilock brakes are a pricey
$600 option. Curtain airbags are
an optional $395 on all Vues.

Happy

holidays
Friends and I were recent-
ly discussing our personal
expectations in our relation-
ships with others, whether
co-workers, life partners, our
children, or acquaintances.
We found that each of us
placed undue stress on our-
selves and our loved ones by
expecting behaviors that
meet our criteria for happi-
ness. The results of these
expectations, ironically,
most often brings to us
unhappiness and distress.
Our enjoyment of the hol-
iday season can hinge
strongly on how we handle
past family traditions and
our willingness to incorpo-
rate new ways of celebrat-
ing. While browsing at
http://holidays.about.com/od
/relationshipsfamily/a/thanks
givingday.htm, I came across
a page of suggestions for
how couples could celebrate
the holidays differently this
year. Although I am not in a
romantic relationship cur-
rently, many of the ideas
presented jump-started my
own ideas for celebration. It
is a well-known fact that the
holiday season can be a less-
than-joyful experience for
us, even in the midst of rev-
elry and cheer of family and
friends, whether single or
partnered. As always,
though, we make the choice.
to be happy or sad each day
of our lives.
One of the traditions I
have always wanted to share
at a holiday gathering is to
lay three grains of corn at
each place setting. Each per-
son then shares three things
he or she is thankful for
while holding each grain of
corn. I believe this process
reconnects us with out her-
itage, our blessings, and
makes us pause in our busi-
ness to reconsider our priori-
ties in life.
Cruise over to http://mar
riage about.com/od/stpatrick
sday/. Anything Irish draws
my attention and this was no
exception. I revisited stories
about the origins of the
Claddaugh. There, I read the
symbology of the Claddaugh
ring: facing outward on the
right hand means I am fancy
free; facing inward on the
right hand is considering
being in love, and facing
inward on the left hand
means you are happily mar-
ried. Luckily (I'm Irish,
remember?), I've been wear-
ing my ring on the right
hand facing out. One of the
wee folk must have whis-
pered in my ear on that.
If you are thinking of pro-
posing marriage during the
holidays, you may want to
search "marriage proposal"
on the Internet to find a
unique way of "popping the
question." Dogpile.com has
95 Web sites; Yahoo.corn has
approximately 7,200,000. I
would suggest you also peek
at "7 Secrets of a Happy
Marriage" before taking the
momentous step at
http://marriage-propos
al. 101soho. com/happy.html.
Finally, in an article about
the hectic holidays at
http://arthritis.about.com/lib
rary/weekly/aa120999.htm ?o
nce=true&, we are reminded
we need to give ourselves
the gift of kindness. What
would be your expectations
of a family member who is
facing a serious illness?
Treat yourself as well or bet-
ter as you do this beloved
person. Throw those expec-
tations away once and for
always.

LAKE PLACID
L painting at an In-Home Art Party relieves stress.
Recently, certified instructor Judy Nicewicz met
with and presented her program to caregivers and their
families at Rosewood Assisted Living Center in Lake
Placid. At these In-Home Art Parties, people come to
paint and can forget their woes.
For $30, a person can choose from a variety of kits: One offers
eight pages of scrapbooking. The gallery glass kit is a 12-inch
round, pre-beaded glass hoop that can be painted with fruit, holi-
day wreaths, berries, tulips, etc. It is trimmed with a gold chain
and looks like stained glass. It can be hung from a window or on
a sliding glass door or act as a divider in a room. Another kit that
is offered is the two-step painting. This is:an easy-foinm of pairib--n
ing to learn, even for those who think they can't paint. From a
blob of dimensional paint a person can easily create iosebuds and
leaves on a bookmark. A paintbrush isn't even essential. A person
can do it just by using their thumb and little finger.
Although Nicewicz offers this class to families of health care
workers, an In-Home Art Party can be presented at any business.
She is willing to fit anyone's schedule and even offers classes in
her home if there is a problem finding a suitable place to meet.
Sharon Collier, an administrator at Rosewood Senior Care
Villas said she had previously taken Nicewicz' One-Stroke
Painting class and fell in love with it.
"Since Rosewood was damaged after the hurricanes and is
finally repaired, I wanted everyone to take this class so we can
use the technique to decorate the bathrooms. This is soothing and
relaxing for both employees and residents after a day's work. It's
great therapy. Even I can do it. My grandkids think I'm an artist
now," Collier said.
Nettie Brown, who is the intake coordinator with Ace Home
Care, loved the class.
"I was so enthusiastic about taking this class. I'd seen the art-
work produced and was excited not only about what it could do
for us caregivers, but also for our elderly. This is a great way to
encourage a hobby for a homebound person," Brown said.
For more information, go to her Web site at www.judyn.n-
homeart.com to look at some of the finished products. These kits
can also be ordered and shipped as a gift for someone special.
Nicewicz is at Alligator Antique Mall, 2651 U.S. 27 South,
Sebring. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. Her phone numbers are 386-0123 and (cell) 273-1339.
Her e-mail is nicewicz@tnni.net.


The News-Sun is coordinating the fourth annual
Lighting Up Highlands event this holiday season for
outdoor displays only.
There will not be any judging or prizes, but instead
everyone is invited to let the readers know where are the
most spectacular holiday decorations in the county. All
entries will be published on Dec. 18 in the News-Sun
along with some photographs of the displays. The deadline
to submit entries will be 5 p.m. Dec. 12.

DIVERSIONS


Huffman and Zegers find each other in 'Transamerica'


By CHRISTY LEMIRE
AP Movie Critic
A pre-op transsexual goes on
a cross-country road trip with
the teenage hustler son he never
knew he had. Or would that be
she?
It sounds like a bad soap-
opera premise. But in the hands
of "Transamerica" star Felicity
Huffman, this potentially melo-
dramatic idea produces a film
that's funny, poignant and
remarkably grounded in reality.
A recent Emmy winner for
playing one of the. Wisteria
Lane women on "Desperate
Housewives," Huffman is com-
pletely unrecognizable as the
uber-girlie Bree (who's techni-
cally still a man named
Stanley), a transformation she
achieved not just through make-
up, hair and clothing,.but from
the inside 9ut.
Yes, the film's creative team
gets the aesthetic elements right
in depicting what it's like when
a man pretends to be a woman
- or in this case, when a
woman acts like a man pretend-
ing to be a woman. Bree applies
her makeup in bold smudges,


and hasn't found quite the right
shades for her skin tone. Her
wardrobe consists of pinks and
polyesters, which would make
her an ideal Mary Kay sales-
woman. And when she tries to
sashay gracefully, her walk
comes off as a jerky stomp.
But it's what Huffman does
internally - the sadness and
the subtlety beneath the awk-
ward exterior - that makes her
so enormously believable. It
helps greatly that writer-direc-
tor Duncan Tucker, in his
impressive feature film debut,
has created a character who's
not a freak or a stereotype, just
a lonely, alienated person trying
to establish an identity and find
a little happiness.
Bree is clearly brilliant but
aimless, having hopped
between college courses and
jobs before settling on telemar-
keting and part-time waitress-
ing to save money.for her oper-
ation. For someone whose
lifestyle would be considered
far outside the mainstream,
she's surprisingly conservative
and proper, which is an inven-
tive twist.


She's appalled to find out not
only that she has a son from a
fleeting heterosexual encounter
long ago, but that he's a junkie
and a street hustler - with atro-
cious grammar.
She's only a week away from
her surgery when she flies from
California to New York (urged
by her therapist, played by
Elizabeth Pena) to meet Toby
(Kevin Zegers), who's just been
arrested and has placed a call
for help to the person he
believes is his father. Posing as
a church missionary to hide her
identity, she agrees to drive him
back to Los Angeles, where he
has dreams of starring in X-
rated movies. She has dreams,
meanwhile, of dropping him off
with a relative somewhere
along the way.
The road-trip premise is a
cliche in itself, and Tucker
gives in to all its conventions: a
beat-up station wagon, two-lane
back roads (no one in road-trip
movies ever takes the high-
way), run-down gas stations
and folksy diners. They
encounter unscrupulous
strangers and unexpected kind-


nesses (Graham Greene adds
sweetness and warmth in just a
few scenes).
And, most importantly, they
get to know each other, which is
inevitable when you're stuck in
a car with someone for days at a
time.
Zegers, who looks and
sounds like a young Leonardo
DiCaprio with his tousled hair
and wiry frame, finds a natural
banter with Huffman as their
characters feel each other out
and fail to tell each other the
whole truth.
Fionnula Flanagan, Burt
Young and Carrie Preston pro-
vide comic relief as Bree's dis-
approving family, just as the
story reaches its most intense
point in Phoenix.
Of course, Toby and Bree
will both be better off by the
end of their travels, but this is
one of those instances in which
the journey truly is the destina-
tion.
"Transamerica," a Weinstein
Co. release, is rated R for sexu-
al content, nudity, language and
drug use. Running time: 103
minutes. Three stars out of four.


Ted Danson makes inspirational move to 'South Bronx'


By BRIDGET BYRNE
Associated Press Writer
LOS ANGELES - "Knights
of the South Bronx," an A&E
movie premiering Dec. 6 (8
p.m. EST), is based on a true-
life tale about how a teacher
uses chess to inspire inner-city
kids.
It's star, Ted Danson, found
himself inspired as well. His
love of the game, long dormant,
was rekindled, he says, and his
skills definitely enhanced.
"It takes the computer, a lot
longer to beat me than it did!"
exclaims the actor, who had
played the board game as a kid,
but rarely since.
Even more so, he adds, he
was moved greatly by the real
tale of the film's inspiration.
chess expert David MacEnulty,
who taught the intricate board
game to Bronx elementary
school children, nurturing them
to success in national competi-
tions.
Executive producer Diane
Nabatoff approached Danson
by sending him a video of a TV
news piece about MacEnulty,
and the actor recalls that he and
his wife, actress Mary
Steenburgen, were "in tears"


after watching it.
In a recent chat, Danson, sit-
ting in the garden of his
Brentwood home, praised
MacEnulty as a "true hero ... an
amazing man, so passionate, so
dedicated."
The A&E movie does take
some dramatic license with
MacEnulty's story, but he says
he accepts that because what
really matters is that the film is
true in the way it depicts the
lessons the kids learned through
the challenges of chess.
"You don't get ahead by get-
ting it over on people. You get
ahead by being better than they
are at something, and the only
way you are going to do that is
if .you work harder than the
other people. And that's the
message ,,of :-,the .movie,"
.MacEpulty, says. .
On the film's Toronto loca-
tion, Danson watched
MacEnulty, who has written
several chess books and created
software programs for the U.S.
Chess Federation, teaching the
young actors the basics of the
game.
"There were six or so kids
from 5- to 10- or 11-years-old
who were just nonstop, all over


him, all over the chess pieces,
squabbling. I was horrified,
'Oh, my god, is this what I'm
going to be doing everyday?'
But what David said to me, and
what I saw, was 60, 70 percent
of his energy was to capture
their attention-and the rest was
put into the chess teaching."
Danson went on to apply that
technique himself in working
with his young co-stars. "As
soon as you offer them some-
thing that is really interesting
and when the communication
is, 'You matter, I care about
you, you can do this,' you can
keep them focused."
Delia Fine, vice president of
film, drama and music for
A&E, says that while watching
Danson on the set she realized
he was doing double-duty,,-
"wrangling the kids, and men-
toring and tutoring them in their
jobs," while giving his own per-
formance.
"He had such a wonderful
way of keeping them focused.
When things would start to
break down, he just seemed
able to reel them back in in such
a nice way, in a supportive way
... it was very, very impressive."
A&E, in collaboration with


Food for Thought Software, has
created a "Think Like a King"
contest for teachers in hopes of
encouraging interest in chess as
a tool to. enhance learning
skills. Winners get free chess-
teaching software for their
schools.
"Not everyone can play
sports," says Danson. "Sports
got me through high school,
made me feel like there was a
reason for living. Music can do
that for some kids, but not
everybody is into music or is a
jock. Chess is an amazingly
cheap way to capture a child's
imagination and expand their
brain ... there's a quiet confi-
dence that comes from a kid
learning how to play chess."
The actor says a couple of
lines from the movie struck him
as . eing particularly telling:
"Playing chess is like taking
your mind to the gym," and, "If
you can win a game of chess, no
one can ever call you stupid."
Most famous as the woman-
izing bartender Sam Malone on
NBC's 1982-93 Emmy-win-
ning sitcom "Cheers," Danson,
57, also starred in the sitcom
"Becker," which ended last year
after a six-year run on CBS.


Fox signs Cowell to long-term deal on 'American Idol'


By DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer
NEW YORK - Simon
Cowell will be insulting
prospective singers on
"American Idol" for several
years to come.
Fox announced Tuesday that
it had reached a deal that keeps
the insult-wielding talent show
judge on television's most pop-
ular show for at least five more
seasons.


The announcement comes
with the settlement of a lawsuit
against Cowell by fellow
British pop impresario Simon
Fuller. The lawsuit was report-
edly a stumbling block in Fox
being able to reach a deal to
keep Cowell on "Americai
Idol."
A spokeswoman for
Fremantle Media, which dis-
tributes "American Idol" and
produces Cowell's new show,


"X-Factor," confirmed the case
had been settled.
In his copyright infringement
lawsuit, Fuller had claimed that
Cowell had copied the format
of "Pop Idol" - the British ver-
sion that predated the U.S. ver-
sion of "American Idol" - for
"X-Factor."
The deal announced Tuesday
extends Fox's partnership with
"American Idol" producers 19
Entertainment Ltd., Fuller's


company.
"I'm delighted to be commit-
ting to a further run with Fox in
the States," Fuller said. "Simon
Cowell is a key component of
the incredible success of
'American Idol,' and I'm
delighted that we'll continue
working as a team with
FremantleMedia and Fox."
Cowell said that he's happy
to be working with "my good
friend Simon Fuller."


Helping hands bring holiday cheer to homebound neighbors


Dear Abby:
The holiday season has
begun and most people have
started planning for family
feasts, gifts, home decorating
and travel. Not everyone, how-
ever, will be able to leave home,
enjoy a holiday trip, or be with
family and friends. For many
people who are frail, elderly,
sick and have disabilities, the
holidays mean staying home
without the festivities enjoyed
by others.
Here are some simple sug-
gestions to brighten the holi-
days for our homebound neigh-
bors. One way to literally make
the holidays brighter is to help
replace burned-out lightbulbs
inside and outside their homes.
This can be extremely helpful
for someone who has difficulty
standing or turning bulbs in
light sockets. (The same is also
true for replacing batteries in
smoke detectors.) Help with
holiday decorations, because
putting up decorations can be
difficult for frail elderly people,
a little assistance with lights
and ornaments that usually
remain in boxes could brighten
their holidays. Give a holiday
gift of nonperishable food
items. For elderly individuals
on fixed incomes, a special gift
of jam, instant hot cereals, fruit


or a selection of teas
or coffee could be a
"luxury." Check to
see if the heat inside
the home is adequate
and that precautions
have been taken to
ensure that faucets are
working during sub-
zero temperatures. A
lap robe or quilt can
be a welcomed gift
for someone whose
home is not well-
insulated or heated


DEAR ABBY

Jeanne Phillips


when the temperature falls.
Many elderly people find it
difficult to ask for something,
valuing their self-reliance and
independence, even if it means
ignoring a need. If you think a
homebound neighbor could use
assistance or a special gift,
please reach out and make the
effort to help.
- Linda Mason, Visiting
Nurse Association of Texas
Dear Linda:
I hope your suggestions will
stimulate people to think about
how they can help those who
have difficulty helping them-
selves. To your terrific sugges-
tions, I would like to add:
Loneliness is the ultimate
poverty. If you can, spend some
'ime visiting. For someone who
lives alone, the holidays can be


a constant reminder
of family or friends
who are no longer
living. A little com-
pany can go along
way toward easing
these feelings of
loneliness.
And if you're feel-
ing lonely yourself,
consider volunteer-
ing to deliver Meals
on Wheels. Holiday
vacations can create
a shortage of the vol-


unteers needed to bring meals
and human contact to home-
bound elderly, and those who
are sick and disabled. Besides
delivering food, the drivers can
also provide much-needed holi-
day cheer. There is no greater
"upper" than bringing joy to
others.
Dear Abby:
I have been dating a wonder-
ful guy I'll call Evan for about
six months. A woman he dated
for a long time died unexpect-
edly. She had left him four
months before I met him, and
until recently, Evan claimed he
"hated" her.
Now that she's gone, Evan
talks only about how much he
loved her, how beautiful she
was, and how he wishes she had
never left him. I'm trying hard


to be supportive, but it's diffi-
cult to listen to - and, frankly,
I'm somewhat hurt by all of
this. How do you recommend I
handle it?
- Distressed
Dear Distressed:
Your boyfriend is grieving
not only for someone he cared
About, but also for a lost fanta-
sy. You're here, she's gone, so
my advice to you is to be
patient. Let him vent until
you've "had it up to here," and
then gently ask him to
"remind" you why his relation-
ship with her ended.

Morning Song performs in Avon Park


AVON PARK - A
Christmas gift to the Avon Park
community sponsored by
Walker Memorial Seventh-day
Adventist Church, will be pre-
sented in the form of a two-
hour religious musical concert.
The performance, featuring
Morning Song, will be at 7 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 10, in the
church.
Morning Song is a religious
non-profit Christian recording
company that is committed to
providing high-quality friendly,
family entertainment through-
out the United States and over-
seas.
Mornih~g Song is -based in
Atlanta and partners with local
citizens, committees and busi-
nesses to sponsor and promote
concert series that are open to
all faiths as well as those who
have no church affiliation.
The four members; Steve
Darmody, Jennifer La
Mountain, Rudy Micelli and
Joey Tolbert, join in singing
duets, trios, quartets, or solos to
vary their presentations.
Darmody, the leader of the


team, enjoys a rich baritone
voice and has been heard across
the nation on Christian radio
and television.
He has been serving Christ
through concert ministry since
1980 both in the United States
and abroad and performs more
than 100 concerts each year.
With more than 2,000 con-
certs and appearances on his
resume, he has ministered in an
array of venues -from military
.bases, hospitals, shopping malls
and fine performing art centers
here and abroad. Darmody's
voice continues to be a holiday
classic on numerous radio sta-
tions.
La Mountain is heard across
the nation on Christian radio
stations and her four recordings
have become inspirational
favorites.
She has been featured on var-
ious religious television pro-
grams in the United States,
.Canada and abroad. Born in
Tennessee, she has been singing
since the age of 3. She is not
only a singer, but also a song-
writer.


Tolbert is a new singer and
songwriter to Christian music.
There is a unique blend of
gospel and folk styles to her
singing and this blend adds a
rich contemporary flare to her
music.
Singing since the age of 2
she loves music and the stage.
Participating in talent competi-
tions for years and singing in
church choirs have given
Tolbert a diverse approach to
music.
She gives credit to her par-
ents for instilling in her an
appreciation for southern rock,
bluegrass and grass roots
music. As a special 'guest 'of
Morning Song, Tolbert sings
with a distinctive style and a
lovely alto voice.
Micelli was born in Bage,
Brazil and began his singing as
a soprano in the family choir.
With seven older siblings, he
was assigned to the melody
with his mother.
Micelli's voice and music are
a compelling force and create
an excitement and desire for
more in the hearer. His second


tenor voice is filled with reso-
nance and beauty all its own. At
18, he began professional train-
ing and attended such institu-
tions as Goethe Music Musiarte
and the Federal University of
Rio Grande D Sui. In Brazil, he
was a member of the highly
awarded group Vocal
Mandrialis in which he gained
fame on the many stages on
which he performed.
In 1997, he moved to the
United States. His five CDs
include songs in four languages
and are fast becoming interna-
tional favorites.
Everyone is invited to attend
the concert free of charge, but
in order to reserve a seat, a per-
son must request and receive a
ticket.

Faith Missionary
Baptist Church
SEBRING - December
starts a month of concentrated
celebration of Jesus Christ as

Christmas lights, put up a tree
of some kind, think about
Christmas cookies, what or
where they will eat, gifts for
family and friends, and dust off
the cassette or CD of "Handel's
Messiah." Members think of
church cantatas, dramas and
special television programs to
help them keep Christ in
Christmas. But how much daily
personal heart preparation are
people involved in? Are people
cleaning out their hearts? Are
people willingly repentive of
things that do not belong there,
making ready to celebrate all
that Jesus did for them? Pastor
Ken Lambert will center on
Jesus the month of December.
Marilyn Burgess will be pro-
vide special music in the morn-
ing service and Patsy Coriell
will provide it for the evening
service.

Taveniere Tip-OffTournament


Devils hang on to top Pendleton


N Editor's note: Thursday's game bet-. tet
Sebring and Lakeland had a late star. and
was not complete at press time.
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING - The Red Devils usuall-
use their speed to score points. Thursda..
however, they used it to keep their oppo-
nent from scoring.
After allowing a 15-point lead with 5 16
left in the game to shrink to just three o\ er
the IMG Pendleton Academy with 29.6
seconds remaining, Avon Park used quick
passes and even quicker feet to run 20 sec -
onds off the clock before Pendleton could
foul, which proved crucial in the De iIs'
77-74 win in the opening game of the
Taveniere Tip-Off Tournament at Sebring
High School.
''We tried to run kind of a pass-and-go-
type, cutting-through-the-lane offense."
Avon Park coach Eric Zwayer said of the
Devils' clock-draining display. "We still
can't stop attacking when we do thai and
we had a couple of chances to make la ups
An Pk and we just turned the bjll
Aon Prk and kicked it out when \ e
7J7 should have made the shoi."
Devaris Strange hit tmo
Pendleton free throws with 9.9 seconds
74 left - making him 6-of--
Sfrom the line in the.fourth
quarter - to put the De is
up by five and give him a game-high 24
points.
"Devaris is really maturing as a play er,"
Zwayer said. "He's really coming into hll
senior role as a leader on the team and he',
helping us to win close ballgames."
The Devils used a turnover-creating
defense and four second-quarter 3-point-
ers - two of them from center Patrick
Menzies, who ended up with 20 points -
to build a 44-27 lead at the half and led 67-
52 before Pendleton's pressure defense
and an injury to point guard Rafael
Johnson started to take its toll.
Johnson, who finished with 16 points.
- went, down-,with. 35.6 seconds left, in ihe
third quarter with a brii ed thi'h 'and.
though he returned, was clearly not at full
speed and eventually left the game for
good.
"That hurt us a little bit," Zwayer said.

Lexus enters

ALMS with

two-car team

Joins BMW as new
additions to 2006
season that starts with
12 Hours of Sebring
Special to the News-Sun
BRASELTON, Ga. -
Culminating an unprecedented
week of competitor growth, the
American Le Mans Series on
Thursday announced Lexus as
the second of two elite manu-
facturers that in a three-day
span have made commitments
to field a two-car, factory-
backed racing program for the
2006 season.
Fdr its "Passionate Pursuit of
Perfection," Lexus will com-
pete with a pair of IS 350 sport
sedans in the American Le
Mans Series' GT2S class.
"Much like we hope the new
IS will become, we view the
American Le Mans Series as an
aspirational series," said Lexus
Group Vice President and
General Manager Bob Carter.
"It's an ideal fit for Lexus
because it celebrates the tech-
nology and performance inher-
ent in the best cars."
Scott Atherton, president and
CEO of the American Le Mans
Series, echoed those thoughts.
"The Lexus brand coming
into the American Le Mans
Series is as close to a natural fit
as we could ever imagine,"
Atherton said. "When anyone
mentions Lexus, many of the
same attributes that are associ-
ated with the American Le'
Mans Series come to mind--
words like luxury, high per-
formance, leading-edge tech-
nology, style and quality
describe both brands. On behalf
of the series, and its manufac-
turers and competitors, we are
proud and honored to welcome
Lexus into our competitive
ranks."
Lexus is the second premium
manufacturer to announce its
participation in the American
Le Mans Series this week.
Tuesday, BMW confirmed its
plan to bring two factory-
backed M3s to the series grid
starting at the 54th annual
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring in
March.
Lexus will join with its rac-
ing partner Team Lexus, which
will build, develop and cam-
paign the new cars with techni-
cal assistance and backing from
Lexus. Work already has start-
ed on preparing the IS 350s for
the 2006 American Le Mans
Series, and driver lineups will
be announced at a later date.

News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING - A sluggish start cost
Lake Placid against the Martin
County Tigers as the Dragons fell 62-
57 in the opening round of the
Taveniere Tip-Off Tournament at
Sebring High School Thursday.
"We lost that game in the first four
or five minutes of the first quarter,"
Lake Placid coach Steve Young said.
"The turnovers and at times getting
back on defense hurt us."
The Tigers jumped out to a quick
9-0 lead in the first two minutes of
the game with a 3-pointer from
Anthony Ramondi, two layups off


steals and another short jumper from
Ramondi, who finished with a team-
high 16 points.
Conlin Veley got Lake Placid on
---- the board with a buck-
artin Co. et at the 5:55 mark and
Jovonni Shuler quickly
added a putback. Lake
Lake Placi Placid d then rallied at
5 the end of the quarter,
closing with an 8-1

County led just 16-15.
But the Tigers ran off a 8-4 burst to
end the second quarter and led 30-24
at intermission.

Florida State fans want Bowden to send son packing


By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE - Nov-
ember was a long month for
Florida State's Bobby Bowden.
His once-perennially ranked
Seminoles were winless, skid-
ding out of the polls for the first
time in four years after being
manhandled by Clemson and
Florida and a close home loss to
North Carolina State.
And now fan Web sites, tele-
vison and radio talk shows and
some Florida newspapers are
calling for the 76-year-old
coach to fire his offensive coor-
dinator - who happens to be
his youngest son. The younger
Bowden has been responsible
for the Seminoles' offense the
past five seasons and it has
never been as good as those
over the previous 15. Not even
close.
Bobby Bowden, the wii-
ningest coach in NCAA history,
has called his son's critics
"cowards" and refers to the
controversy as "crap," adding

"He was definitely leading us in the first half He
tried to play, he tried to be a man, but sometimes
it's really hard. He's going to be fine. It's just a
bruise."
With Johnson not in the game, the Devils had
trouble getting through the bigger Pendleton
defense and the lead began to shrink.
Pendleton is a basketball recruiting factory in
Bradenton, and its roster featured 6-foot-6 fresh-
man Toarlyn Fitzpatrick and junior Darnell
Taylor, who appeared bigger than his listed 6-
foot-9 and led his team with 18 points.
But even though the Devils let their lead dwin-
dle, it never disappeared, which was something
Zwayer was proud to see.
"They really came after us an pressured us. We
knew they were going to. They were down at the
half, so we,were ready for that," the second-year
coach said.
"I thought our guys did a good job. Even
though momentum shifted their way, I thought
we did a good job of holding it together.
"(After) four minutes to go, I thought we kind
of played soft. As a team we really played physi-


BOWDEN
Continued from 1D
Under Jeff Bowden, Florida
State (7-4, 5-3 ACC) ranks
42nd in total offense and 39th
in scoring offense nationally
going into Saturday's league
title game against fifth-ranked
Virginia Tech (10-1, 7-1).'
The Seminoles did lead the
defense-oriented Atlantic Coast
Conference in several offensive
categories this season, includ-
ing total yards and passing
yards per game, but they well
below the standards the
school's fans have long been
accustomed.
Some of the criticism hits
close to home. Veteran
Seminole radio color analyst
Peter Tom Willis, dismayed at
some of the play calling this
season, said the Seminoles had
"a high school offense" during
one broadcast. A quarterback
for Bobby Bowden in the late
1980s, Willis has long been a
fan favorite for his candid
observations.
Florida State President T.K.
Wetherell, who inherited the

ing fondness for Bobby

"When we were 5-0 nobody.
was talking about it," Wetherell
said about the team's fast start
this season. "It's really depend-
ent more, in my mind, on per-
formance. I'm sure that's what
coach Bowden is looking at."
Bowden is not the only coach
promoting family members.
Joe Paterno's son, Jay, is
quarterbacks coach at Penn
State and Steve Spurrier has his
son, Steve Jr., on the staff at
South Carolina, where former
coach Lou Holtz actually
demoted his son Skip from the'
offensive coordinator's role.
However, not all states have
nepotism policies.
Florida does, but it's not
impenetrable.
Florida State baseball coach
Mike Martin and Florida A&M
basketball coach Mike
Gillespie have sons working for
them while Florida A&M
women's basketball coach


Debra Clark has husband John
as her assistant.
But none are the offensive
coordinator at Florida State
where Bowden transformed a
one-time women's college into
one of the country's premier
football playgrounds.
Fed up with the offense's
performance, Wetherell last
year held up pay raises for its
coaches.
Bowden also replaced veter-
an offensive line coach Jimmy
Heggins and quarterback Chris
Rix, a four-year starter blamed
for many of the problems, grad-
uated.
The problems, however, are
back, leaving former players
concerned.
"I'm not going to forget the
three losses to teams that are
not, ranked," said Tampa Bay
Bucs linebacker Derrick
Brooks, a former Seminole All-
American who now sits oh the
school's board of trustees.
"I tell people all the time,
Florida State has been hum-
bled," Brooks said. "But now
that we've been humbled, what
are we going to do about it?"

BCS bosses keeping fingers crossed


Good luck getting a phone
call through to BCS headquar-
ters this weekend. Everyone
from chief Kevin Weiberg to
the receptionist figures to have
so many fingers and toes
crossed that it would take a
contortionist to get the receiver
off the hook.
The reason they're all tied
up in knots is simple: They
need a clear-cut No. 1 and No.
2 in the national championship
game to keep the mob howling
for a playoff outside the gates
- for at least one more year.
For that to happen, heavily
favored USC must beat Pac-10
rival UCLA, and heavily
favored Texas must beat Big
12 rival Colorado.
After some 1,250 Division I-
A games this season, only
those two must fall favorably
for the Rose Bowl to host the
nation's only two undefeated
teams. After years of trial and
plenty of errors, the BCS has
learned not to promise more
than that.
"It would be great if we fin-
ish the season without a lot of
questions about whether we
have the right two teams in the
championship game," Weiberg
said during a teleconference
earlier this week.
How great the Big 12 com-
missioner didn't want to say,
but you can hardly blame him.
Weiberg is in the final weeks
of a two-year term as BCS
coordinator, a job (read: ulcer)
that rotates among the six
major conference commission-
ers. He's endured as many hits
as near-misses during that time
and learned to be prepared for
either.
"We've seen every year pro-
duce some surprises," Weiberg
added, "so I'm not banking on
that we won't see some sur-
prises this year." -
It won't be any more effec-
tive than the BCS finger-cross-
ing, but advocates of a playoff
should be begging for a repeat
of the final weekend of 1998.
That's when unbeaten No. 2
UCLA was tripped up by
Miami and unbeaten No. 3

Gils to


stay with


Padres
Associated Press
SAN DIEGO - Brian Giles
seemed all but gone late last
week when the San Diego
Padres rejected a proposal from
his agent.
That's what made it so sur-
prising when the right fielder
agreed Thursday to re-sign
with his hometown Padres for
$30 million over three years.
"We're extremely excited
that Brian Giles will be wear-
ing a Padres uniform for the
next several seasons," general
manager Kevin Towers said.
"He is a tremendous everyday
player who is an offensive
force and a solid defender."
One of the top outfielders on
the free-agent market, Giles
batted .301 with 15 homers and
83 RBIs last season, leading the
NL West-champion Padres in
several offensive categories.
He drew a major league-best
119 walks and had a stellar .423
on-base percentage.
"Brian Giles is a key reason
the San Diego Padres won the
National League West in 2005,
so I am delighted were able to
bring back a player of his cal-
iber," San Diego chief execu-
tive officer. Sandy Alderson
said. "I strongly believe that
Brian is a significant element to
what we are trying to accom-
plish."
"It's been a pleasant sur-
prise," Giles' agent, Joe Bick,
said Wednesday night. "I guess


the Padres had a change of
heart."
The New York Yankees and
Toronto Blue Jays were among
the other teams thought to be
interested in Giles, who turns
35 on Jan. 21. He made $7 mil-
lion each of the last two sea-
sons.
Giles was obtained from the
Pittsburgh Pirates on Aug. 26,
2003.

Associated Press


cipitating the greatest free-fall
in BCS history. In the span of
one play, Kansas State went
from facing Tennessee in the
Fiesta Bowl for the national.
championship to meeting
Purdue in the Alamo Bowl -
and taking home $11 million
less in the bargain.
Which made Bobby
Bowden's comment priceless.
He was sitting in his living
room on that fateful Saturday,
doing nothing more strenuous
than clicking the remote and
watching the BCS waters part.
The next day, after learning he
and his No. 4 Seminoles were
being ushered into the sudden-
ly vacant Fiesta Bowl slot
alongside Tennessee, Bowden
chuckled, "I have never
accomplished so much doing
nothing, just sitting on the
couch."
This year's lucky couch
potato could turn out to be
Penn State coach Joe Paterno.
His Nittany Lions, ranked No.
3 in the BCS, are 10-1 and
done with their regular season.
Fourth-ranked LSU, also 10-1,
could still be shoehorned into
the national championship pic-
ture, too, but the fourth-ranked
Tigers will first have to beat
Georgia in the Southeastern
Conference title game
Saturday.
Who else? There's too many
scenarios to go into here if
USC or Texas, or both, lose.
But suffice it to say if that hap-
pens, the people at BCS head-
quarters will have plenty to do
with those digits the second
they're uncrossed. One possi-
bility is using them to immedi-
ately plug their ears, since


there's going to be a few
unhappy coaches on the line.
Speaking of that, it's been
unusually quiet at the BCS the
past few weeks, even as this
season's injustices come into
sharper focus. Assuming
everything goes according to
form, Oregon, at 10-1, looks to
be this year's most likely vic-
tim: The Ducks lost only to
USC and want an at-large bid
to the Fiesta Bowl.
Unfortunately, the Fiesta
Bowl folks want two-loss
Notre Dame and Ohio State
teams instead. Something
about snowbirds and Arizona
at that time of year.
That Oregon has done pre-
cious little squealing about its
fate this time around tells you
how much a part of the college
postseason fabric the BCS has
become.
Last week, a few high-rank-
ing officials from the school
reportedly dropped in on Fiesta
Bowl executive director John
Junker and pleaded their case
over lunch. And that was it.
Five years ago, when the
Ducks were passed over for a
deserved shot at the title game
because of some BCS machi-
nations, coach Mike Bellotti
infamously said, "I liken the
BCS to a bad disease, like can-
cer."
But it's nothing like that.
The BCS is just a conflict-rid-
den monopoly set up to make
sure rich college programs and
the chambers of commerce in a
few select towns get richer. It
rewards friends and ignores
just about everybody.else. It's
like a lot of businesses.
And let's be clear: a playoff
would be an equally - maybe
even more - lucrative busi-
ness for anyone lucky enough
to get their arms around it. It
would also remove most of the
guesswork from the equation,
open up the field to a few more,
outsiders, and spread the
money around. But then, what
would all those people back at
BCS headquarters do?

'brand new cars in a series new
to-us will be a major challenge
but one that we relish," said
Team Lexus owner Chuck
Goldsborough. "We've been
building our team along with
the new cars this year and are
looking forward to some of the
most exciting and competitive
road racing in North America."
One by one, Atherton's
promises of delivering new
manufacturers and teams to the
American Le Mans Series in his
September "State of the Series"
address at Petit Le Mans are
materializing. And with an out-
standing 10-race schedule that
impacts nine of the top 20 mar-
kets across North America, the
best television package in the
series' history and 2005 season
results indicating double-digit
increases in sponsorships, times
have never been better.
"The American Le Mans
Series, with its 'premium brand
of motorsport' platform, is
experiencing an unprecedented
level of growth and expansion,
and Lexus has recognized this,"

Lexus will field a pair of IS 350s in the American Le Mans Series
next year.


Atherton said. "This represents
more than the addition of anoth-
er prestigious manufacturer to
our ranks. Lexus will bring
another wave of elite sponsors,
high-end clientele and a level of
activation that we expect will
establish a new benchmark.
Lexus' involvement in the
American Le Mans Series will
Shave a positive impact by every
measure. But the best part is
that there still is more good
news to come."
Cars competing in GT2S are


not eligible for the 24 Hours of
Le Mans at this time. However,
GT2S entries will be classified'
in the GT2 class of the
American Le Mans Series and
will be eligible to score champi-
onship points.
Series officials are working
closely with the Automobile
Club de l'Ouest (ACO) to eval-
uate the involvement of GT2S
cars in the American Le Mans
Series with the possibility of
making them eligible for the 24
Hours of Le Mans in the future.

Lake Placid's Jan Valk (21) eyes the rim as he moves around a
Martin County defender Thursday night


TURNS
Continued from 1D
The Green Dragons (1-2)
came out strong to open the
third quarter. Jan Valk, who had
13 points, opened with a three-
point play, converting the free
throw after the foul. Yurrie
Robinson (game-high 17
points) scored on a nifty pass
from Shuler and then scored
inside again and Quay
Crenshaw's basket with 4:59
left in the third gave the
Dragons their first lead of the
game at 33-32.
Neither team could develop a
lead until Ramondi drained a
pair of 3-pointers for a 44-40
Martin County advantage. Lake
Placid answered with a driving
layup from Shuler, a free
thrown .from Robinson and a
basket by Valk and, at the third
horn Martin County led 46-45.


Martin County outscored
Lake Placid 10-2 to take a 56-
48 lead with 4:13 to play in the
last quarter. Ramondi added
another 3-pointer in the rally as
did teammate Vu Tran.
Omar DeJesus sank a pair of
free throws with 3:31 to play
for the Dragons and cut the lead
to 56-52. Another 3-pointer by
Tran moved the lead to 59-52,
but Shuler quickly answered
with a trey of his own and a put-
back by Veley with just under a
minute to play cut the lead to
59-57.
Lake Placid fouled to stop
the clock and Martin. County
missed 4-of-7 free throws in the
final minutes, but the Green
Dragons could not covert
offense.
"They kept giving us oppoi
tunities," Young said. "We ke
fouling but we also couldn't gi
that last shot we needed."
