President gives
Martin Roman
challenge coin during
Christmas visit

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
BNews-Sun
SEBRING - After just a
few years in the Marine
Corps, 22-year-old Martin
Roman has more coins than
3* ,his father, who retired from
the Army after 22 years.
President George W.
Bush, during a visit to
Bethesda Naval Hospital on
-Wednesday, was the latest to
coin Roman, whose family
lives at Sun 'N Lake of
, Sebring.
"'Lots of people, impor-
tant people, have come by to
- say 'thank you' to Martin,"
said Carmen Roman, the'
Marine's mom. "They seem
genuinely concerned about
1him."
The commander-in-
chiefs noon visit in
Martin's hospital room was
private. The lance corporal
.and 10 other Marines were
injured Dec. I near Fallujah,
Iraq, in an attack that killed
11.
"They wouldn't let his
�.nurses or any of the doctors
in there while the president
.was there," Carmen Roman
said. .
First Lady Laura Bush
accompanied the president.
Their visit, however, was
' .bracketed with trips to the
operation room for Roman.
. "Martin's spirit is so'
strong," Carmen Roman
said, noting that he's been
F confined to bed for more
than 20 days. "He wanted to
walk to surgery ... I told him

his left leg to close a wound,
and doctors cleared a blood
clot Thursday in his left leg,
placing a filler in his .tnm-

Alan Burch, of Avon Park, reaches for his daughter Alyssa, 1, when
she started crying Thursday afternoon, while visiting Santa Claus at
Lakeshore Mall in Sebring. According to Santa's helper Theresa
Tyson, 'Crying is the number one reaction from small kids,' toward
Santa. According to Santa, lots of kids have asked for video game

According to his father,
Jesus Roman, this is his

Maryland is the last place
where the family thought
they'd spend Christmas.
"We're going to dress up
very nice," Carmen Roman
said, explaining the family
will spend Christmas in
Roman's room at the hospi-
tal, where they erected a:
small tree.
Martin Roman continues
to improve but his doctors
. estimate he'll be at the hos-

months.
"Let's prove the doctors

"Let's see how we can

On their daily visits to see
Martin Roman, the family

Roman continues to plan his
life for when he arrives

"He asks me, 'What

First United Way goal met



as campaign continues


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Being the
director of the Highlands
County branch of the United
Way of Central Florida, Cheryl
Sharp had a simple, one item
wish list as Christmas
approached this year - please
let the United Way meet its
fund-raising goal.
With tsunami relief, aid sent
to Louisiana and the Gulf
Coast following Katrina, an
increasing population, and
many local people still recover-
ing a year after the hurricanes
of 2004, even last year's


increase in
contribu-
tions has
not kept up
with the
increased
needs in
the . com-
munity.
"Every SHARP
year the
agencies
always ask for more than we
can give," Sharp said.
However, as of Tuesday,
Highlands County was closer
to making Sharp's wish come
true, when the United Way's


initial goal of raising $465,000
was accomplished in record
time. In the past, that goal has-
n't been reached until after the
first of the year.
But, Sharp hastened to add,
that goal is really just a bench-
mark. Several of Highlands
County's larger businesses are
still conducting their annual
drives. Sharp is hoping to
increase the amount already
pledged, perhaps, topping the
half million dollar mark. If that
larger goal is reached,
Highlands County will have

Impact fee committee to hear presentations


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
Five companies responded
to a recent Highlands County
request for proposals for its
impact fees study.
The Impact Fee Study
Steering Committee rejected
two respondents for lack of ref-
erences and will invite the rest
to give formal presentations in
January.
Duncan Associates, of
Austin, Texas; TischlerBise, of
Bethesda, Md.; and Tindale-
Oliver and Associates, of


Tampa; submitted bids of
$226,800, $199,000, and
'$251,161, respectively.
"This is a way to allow new
growth to pay for itself rather
than passing the cost on to the
taxpayer," committee chairman
Bob Bullard said Thursday.
According to the request for
proposal, the county wants the
study completed within four
months of giving the green
light to proceed.
Impact fees are collected
from developers by the county.
The developers, in turn, pass


the cost on to the homeowners
and the county allocates the
fees accordingly to the school
board, the cities, or to the coun-
ty based on impact location and
type.
Bullard said Florida case
law dictates that impact fees
pass the "dual rational nexus
test" in that the fee payers pay
their "fair share" and derive a
"benefit" in paying the fee.
Such benefits could include
new schools, roads, or

Hindelang files



motion against



his attorney


By PHIL A7TINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Tony
Hindelang, convicted of first-
degree murder in 2003, has
claimed his lawyer did not han-
dle his case properly.
Hindelang, 26, was found
guilty on Feb. 14, 2003, for
shooting and killing 28-year-
old William Jason Lamar.
He was sentenced to life in
prison for first-degree murder,
without possibility of parole.
He also has two 30-year sen-
tences for armed kidnapping,
with a 10-year minimum
mandatory.
Allegedly, Defense Attorney
Robert Norgard of Lakeland
had advised Hindelang not to
take a 25-year sentence plea
agreement after assuring him he
would call codefendant
Raymond Sanchez to the stand
during the trial.
Norgard didn't call Sanchez.
Without him, Hindelang didn't
think he could win his case.
In his trial'on October 2002,
Sanchez testified that codefen-
dant Angela Prescott shot
Lamar without either, him or
Hindelang knowing she would.
Hindelang, in his motion to
the 10th Judicial Circuit Court,
states that this violated his
rights under the sixth and 14th
Constitutional amendments.
Hindelang, Prescott and
Sanchez were sitting in the
back seat of a Ford F150
extended cab truck at the time
of the killing. Hindelang con-
tends that Prescott, in the mid-
dle, was a more likely shooter
since the bullet entered Lamar's
head just behind his left ear and
exited just above his right eye.
According to Medical
Examiner Julia Martin's testi-
mony lack of powder burns
suggests the gun was at least
121-' 'inches away from Lamar
whlien fired.
Hindelang testified at his
trial that he was laying back in
the back seat, directly behind
Lamar. He said Prescott took
the gun from under his leg and
shot Lamar. \
Allegedly, Hindelang would


have to have used his left hand
to make that shot.
He also alleges that law
enforcement placed the murder
weapon in his luggage, but he
knew it had been wrapped in'a
shirt and put under the driver's
seat of Prescott's car.
Hindelang also said that the
jury should have received an
instruction on an instruction on
whether they. believed Prescott
did it. Without that, he believes
his case was prejudiced.
He also believes Norgard
should have done a better job
suppressing photos that were
shown to the kidnap victims to
identify their captors.
Hindelang's photo stood out
because it was from the neck up
while the rest were from the
chest up.
One victim didn't identify
Hindelang and the other did.
Given that, he believes the
photo line up should not have
been submitted to the jury.
All of these . issues,
Hindelang said, constitute prej-
udice on him.
The state attorney's office in
Sebring cannot refute
Hindelang's claim's regarding
the location of the gun when it
was found or that Norgard may
have mishandled his case by
not calling Sanchez to the
stand.
Therefore, the state attor-
ney's office has suggested the
circuit court grant a hearing on
those matters.
Assistant State Attorney
Steve Houchin said it's typical,
when all other appeals have
been filed and denied, that a
defendant will ask for post con-
viction relief and "turn on the
lawyer."
Such motions must be made
within two years of losing the
other appeals. There a'e enough
such cases in the 10th Judicial
District that the state attorney's
office will, have person han-
dling nothing but the appeals
cases.
This comes in addition to
other attorneys handling their
regular load.

College-bound seniors running out of time


Three things college-bound
seniors need to act on before

1. Remove all savings from

remove it from their names due
to IRS regulations, then shelter
those monies in a non-assessed
type of asset.
2. Make sure they have
applied to at least four to six
colleges with generous track
records.
3. Gather student and parent
financial information and pre-
pare the family's best estimate
of their taxes in preparation for
the FAFSA filing as early .in
January as possible.

T Highlands County report


Olivero
charged with

theft from cash
register
SEBRING - A woman
working at Sears reportedly
tried to walk out with $1,000
from the store's cash register.
As the store was locking
up at 9 p.m. Sunday, the
store's loss prevention man-
ager allegedly saw Shasira
Marie Olivero, 20, of
Sebring, put a large roll of
cash into her right front pants
pocket. She was working in
the men's department.
The manager contacted her
and she allegedly admitted to


taking the money, which was
recovered.
A Highlands County sher-
iff's deputy watched the
security camera footage and
took a taped statement from
Olivero after advising her of
her Miranda Rights.
Allegedly,
she again
admitted to
taking the
money and
trying to
leave the
OLIVERO store with it.

deputy charged her with
grand theft retail. According
to booking reports, she was
not given bail because she
was on felony probation.

LAKE PLACID - A driver
told to pull over for violating
the "move over" law, didn't
stop and fled the scene.
A Highlands County sheriff's
deputy chased him down, and
when he did, the driver alleged-
ly had cannabis and a legend
drug without prescription. Sean
Michael Eisenhart, 27, of Lake
Placid, was charged with pos-
session.of less than 20 grams of
cannabis, possession of drug
paraphernalia, possession of a
legend drug without prescrip-
tion, and fleeing and attempting
to elude.
He also was
cited with
reckless driv-
ing, failure to
obey an officer
and approach-
ing an emer-
EISENHART agency vehicle
improperly.
Bail was set at $3,000.
At 3:04 p.m. Tuesday a
deputy was giving a verbal, traf-
fic warning to another driver
approximately a half mile north
of the intersection of U.S. 27
and Lake Mirror Drive. A
southbound white truck slowed,
signaled and merged from the
outside lane to the inner lane of
the highway.
A black Jeep Grand
Cherokee behind it, without
signaling, swerved from the
inner lane to the outer lane and
over the white line, toward the
deputy, who jumped against the
stopped car to avoid being hit.
The driver, on seeing the
officer jump, jerked the wheel
back to the left and back into
the outer lane of the highway.
The deputy pointed at the
driver, later identified as
Eisenhart, then at the side of the
road and yelled, "Pall over." He
didn't.
The deputy ran back to his
car, which still had lights flash-
ing, and gave chase.
As he approached the Jeep, it
swerved in front ot a semitrail-
er, causing the truck driver to
hit his brakes to avoid a wreck.
Once the semitrailer cleared
the inner lane, the deputy con-
tinued pursuit. The Jeep now 75
feet ahead of him had accelerat-
ed toward the intersection at
Old State Road 8.
Once there, it slowed down
and made a sharp right turn,
traveling south on Old State
Road 8, and accelerating rapid-

ly, smoking from its rear end.
The left rear tire began to wob-
ble violently.
After a minute, the Jeep
stopped. Eisenhart got out and
approached the deputy's car on
foot.
He allegedly said several
times that he did not know what
was going on. He was ordered
several times to walk back to
his car and place his hands on
it.
He asked for his' lawyer, so
the deputy did not ask him any
questions.
While searching him and the
car, deputies found a pipe, sev-
eral wire screens and rolling
papers. Allegedly, he smelled of
cannabis. Residue inside the
pipe was field tested and
showed positive for cannabis.
Deputies also took note of
the car's contents, including a
blue pill inside the glove box,
identified as a 100 milligrams
of Viagra, which requires a pre-
scription.

Wallace (Wally) Stanley Crockatt, age 71, formerly of Sebring, Florida, passed away at Cherry
Meadows Hospice, Appleton, Wisconsin on Dec. 19, 2005 from complications following a courageous
battle with acute myelogenous leukemia.

Wally was born June 26, 1934 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada to Stanley and Mary Crockatt. He
attended Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan where he met his beloved wife,
Janet Masini. Wally, a hockey player and captain of the MTU Huskies hockey team was selected by
Janet to escort her around the rink as a member of the Winter Carnival Court. They were married Sept.
7, 1957 and shared 47 wonderful years together.

Wally graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and his career in the Pulp and Paper indus-
try took him to Abitibi, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario until 1969; Abitibi, Iroquois Falls, Ontario until 1974;
Ontario-Minnesota/ Boise Cascade until 1976; Midtec/Repap, Miramichi, New Brunswick and
Kimberly, Wisconsin until his retirement.

Wally and Janet enjoyed golfing and many years of boating on Lake Winnebago, Lake Michigan and
Lake Superior. Through the years, they developed many cherished friendships and their home was
always open and welcoming. After retirement, Wally and Janet enjoyed summers at their home in
Hancock, Michigan and winters in Sebring, Florida. After Janet's death, Wally found renewed faith
from her strength in God and joined the Catholic Church during Easter 2005. This journey led him to
his own spiritual peace and comfort during the last year of his life.

Wally is preceded in death by his loving wife, Janet; grandson, Christopher; parents, Stanley and
Mary Crockatt; father-in-law, Joseph Masini; and brother-in-law, Ron Hollingsworth.

He leaves behind his three daughters, Deborah (Robert) Mann, Appleton, Wisconsin;
Lisa (John) Finnegan, Winter Springs, Florida and Marti Crockatt (special friend, David), Hayward,
Wisconsin; four grandchildren, April and Ashley Mann, Appleton, Wisconsin and Riley and Bennett
Finnegan, Winter Springs, Florida; his sisters, Alice Hollingsworth, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and
Marilyn (Gordie) Cook, Chester Basin, Nova Scotia, Canada; mother-in-law, Louise Masini, Coral
Springs, Florida; brother-in-law, Joseph (Charlotte) Masini, Hancock, Michigan and sister-in-law,
Sharon (Tony) Suppelsa, Coral Springs, Florida and numerous nieces, nephews and beloved friends
and extended family.

The family sends a special thank you to those who sent cards, prayers and calls with caring messages;
to Doctors William Guenther, David Brooks and Charles Cheng for their expertise; all the compas-
sionate staff, Dr. John Swanson Jr. and Dr. Nancy Lindo-Drusch at Cherry Meadows Hospice for mak-
ing Wally's last days so peaceful and free of pain and disruption; to the nursing and support staff at
Appleton Medical Center, 3rd floor, Dale, Sister Ruth, Father David Belongea and so many others for
their physical, emotional and spiritual care during Wally's six week of hospitalization.

As his wife, Janet, did before him, Wally has donated his body to the Medical College at the University
of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin. There will be no funeral services at this time. A memorial serv-
ice will be held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. 620 E. Kimberly Avenue. Kimberly, Wisconsin on
Saturday. June 24. 2006 at 10:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial lund has been established in memory of Wallace Crockatt for the
Community Hospice Foundation. P.O. Box 1534. Appleton. Wisconsin. 54912-1534.

fleeing scene

Deputies bust cocaine ring


Five arrested in search and controlled buy sting


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Last week,
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies made five arrests in a
drug bust and sting operation.
After getting information
from several concerned citi-
zens, deputies searched a house
on Wolfe Drive and eventually
were led to a supplier, also in
Sebring.
On Wednesday, Dec. 14,
deputies executed a search war-
rant on a house on Wolfe Drive
and found 40-year-old Mary
Alice Armstrong, also known as
Cason, along with 43-year-old
Jaques Michel Demers and 53-
year-old Gail Polizzi.
Armstrong and Demers lived
together at the house, reports
said.
Polizzi was on a couch in the
living room with $100 and less
than a gram of cocaine, arrest
reports said. She said one of the
pipes and the money was hers.
She allegedly had given
Armstrong money to buy
cocaine for her.
On top of the television,
deputies found Armstrong's set
of keys. In a zipper pouch on
the ring, they found about two
grams of cannabis,.reports said.
Deputies found Armstrong in
the front bedroom, sitting on the
floor. When questioned,
Armstrong allegedly said she
did not sell cocaine, but used it,
and allegedly said she and
Polizzi were going to smoke
some.
In the house, deputies also
found homemade glass smok-
ing pipes with cocaine residue,
copper mesh wading and small
Ziploc-style bags containing
cocaine residue.
Deputies found Demers in
the efficiency apartment above

Jaques Demers

the garage, along with several
homemade smoking pipes with
cocaine residue, a tenth of a
gram of cocaine in a bedside
cabinet and a small postal scale
on the computer desk.
When questioned, Demers
said Armstrong sold crack
cocaine from the home. He
named his supplier as Pablo
Canovas, 57, former owner of
Canovas Fish and Meat Market
on Kenilworth Boulevard in
Sebring.-
Deputies had Demers call
Pablo Canovas and succeeded
in arranging a sale. Demers
asked to have the drugs deliv-
ered to him, and allegedly,
Pablo Canovas said he would
send over "Jorge" - 26-year-
old Jorge Luis Canovas.
Shortly after the call,
deputies watching Canovas'
house at 1264 Blue Heron
Drive, Sebring,. saw Jorge
Canovas leave in a white truck
and drive to Demers' home.
An undercover deputy in the
living room with Demers was
introduced as "Scott." Jorge

Mary Armstrong


Canovas sold Demers a bag of
white powder for $400, reports
said, and deputies arrested him.
The powder - 15 grams -7
field tested positive as cocaine.
Deputies got a search warrant
for Pablo Canovas' house, went
to his house to secure it. When
they arrived, Canovas fled into
the master bedroom, and
washed the remaining cocaine
into the master bathroom sink
drain, reports said.
Deputies found water all over-
the walls and cocaine residue
on the counter and sink basin.
When asked, he told deputies
he has no drugs in the house.
However, arrest reports state
deputies found cocaine residue
on top of the master bedroom
dresser, three unlabeled pill bot-
tles with suspected residue, a
broken glass "crack pipe" pipe
under the bed, and a mirror with
suspected residue.
They also found numerous
paraphernalia items in the top
drawer of his dresser, and more
items crammed down the sink
drain pipe, reports said.


Gail Polizzi Jorge Canovas


When further questioned,
Pablo Canovas allegedly said
he uses drugs, and cooked crack
for personal use, but doesn't
sell drugs.
Pablo Canovas was charged
with two counts of possession
of cocaine, possession of drug
paraphernalia, tampering with
physical evidence, resisting an
officer without violence, and
sale of cocaine, with bail set at
$9,000.
Jorge Canovas was charged
with possession of cocaine, pos-
session of drug paraphernalia,
and sale of cocaine within 1,000
feet of a church. Bail was
$30,500.

possession of cocaine with
intent to sell within 1,000 feet

the Family Watchdog web site
through the Attorney General's
site at
'http://MyFloridaLegal. com.
Watchdog his a service that
provides e-mail notification
when registered sexual preda-
tors move into a neighborhood.
Florida is the first state to join
forces with this child safety
operation.
To use this service, residents
need only agree to the terms of
service, then enter their street
address, city, state and zip code.
They may add more addresses
for a small fee.
Jeff Roth, director of the
Highlands County Children's
Advocacy Center, said the site
would not directly affect their
operations, but believes any
mechanism that helps inform


the public will be a plus.
"It gives citizens a chance to
be better informed and more
aware of dangers in their neigh-
borhood," he said.
Up until now, people had to
watch the newspapers or
receive leaflet notices from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
Detective Tom Ouverson
with the sheriff's office Crime
Scene Investigations unit, along
with other deputies, knocks on
doors daily to inform residents
of a nearby sexual offender, or
visits those on the offender list
once or twice a month to make
sure their addresses are current.
That job got a lot easier since
July 28, 2005, when the 'U.S.
Justice Department activated an
Internet site called National Sex
Offender Public Registry -
www.nsoprgov.
That web site shares compre-
hensive public sex offender
information with citizens, for
free, through a single Internet
search based on a name, state,
county, city/town, or zip code.
Some states have databases
of registered sexual offenders
and predators; others do not. It
can be difficult to track sexual
predators who move from state
to state.
Watchdog, however, helps


residents track sexual predators
by name, no matter where they
live.
Steve Roddel, founder of
Family Watchdog, said his staff
believes strongly that the best
way to combat sexual assault is
through personal awareness.
Identifying known perpetrators
within a community is an
important first step toward pro-
tecting those most at risk of
sexual assault, he said.
Launched six months ago in
Westfield, Ind., the web site has
grown into the nation's top site
for identifying and mapping
convicted sexual offenders.
It includes a national "Amber
Alert" system, child safety tips
and holiday shopping safety.
Domestic violence
Roth said sexual abuse is
probably the smallest amount
of abuse cases his office sees.
The number of such cases has
not grown over the years: "'It's
been really fairly level."
Physical abuse and neglect is
probably the next lowest num-
ber.
However, 75 percent of all
abuse in the county is domestic
violence. That's Roth's real
concern.

MIAMI - An accused serial
rapist who brazenly escaped
from jail using bedsheets for a
rope also had sawlike tools that
may have been smuggled in and
apparently plotted the breakout
for months, police said
Thursday.
"This is a conspiracy. This
was hatched over about three
months," said Miami ,Police
Chief John Timnone, in a tele-
phone interview with The


Associated Press.
The accused rapist, 34-year-
old Reynaldo E. Rapalq, and
another inmate used tools to
escape Tuesday night that were
apparently brought into Turner
Guilford Knight Correctional
Center by an accomplice or
accomplices, Timoney said.

Charles McRay, director of
the Miami-Dade Corrections
Department, placed two correc-
LionI officer, on paid adminis-
trati e lea\ e Thursday as part of


the escape investigation.

McRay answered "absolutely
not" when asked in a telephone
interview if there were allega-
tions that the two officers were
involved in the escape, and said
they have not been disciplined
for any wrongdoing. McRay
also ordered all vents at the
Knight jail welded shut and that
lighting be improved.
. "We're taking steps to make
.sure nothing like this lhhppens
again," McRay said.

Girl donates hair in honor of cousin


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING
after losing her
cousin Juan
Santiago-
Almendarez Jr., 22,
to cancer on March 7 of this
year, 10-year-old Esmerelda
Cortez decided to have her
long hair cut and donated to
Locks of Love in his honor.
She had never had her hair cut
before.
"Locks of Love helps people
without hair feel go6d inside of
them - knowing that they still
have a hope to live for awhile,"
she said.
The organization accepts
donations of hair to make wigs
for cancer victims suffering
hair loss from chemotherapy
treatments.
Cortez's mother, Isabel
Almendarez, said, "When my
daughter told me she wanted to
donate her hair for him I told
her we could do that. We knew
about the program because we
knew a lady in Michigan who
donated her hair to it, so we.
started trying to find out how
to do it here."
She contacted the News-Sun
and learned of Le-Marj Salon
of Beauty in Sebring, which
not only participated, but also
would include a style for free
after cutting the donated hair.
Isabel and Juan Jr.'s grand-
mother, Josefina Almendarez,
had helped his father, Juan Sr.,
raise him because his parents
were separated. Not only did
that make him like a son to
Isabel, but also like a brother �
to Esmerelda and Isabel's other
children. After having moved
to Highlands County, leaving
JuanJr. in Michigan with his
father, Isabel said that she and
her mother were wanting to
bring him down 'here with
them %then he got sick.
Isabel first heard of Juan "
Jr.'s illness when she got a call

Esmereldp Cortez, 10, of Sebring, has nearly two feet of hair cut off
recently by stylist Julie O'Day at Le-Marj Salon of Beauty in
Sebring. She donated her hair to Locks of Love in memory of her
cousin Juan Santiago-Almendarez, 22, who died March 7, 2005 from
cancer.


from his girlfriend, Stephanie
Soto, telling her that he was in
the hospital.
"She said he couldn't
breathe right because his lungs
were filling up w'ith fluid and
he would only live as long as
one year," Isabel said.


Her nephew had just been
taken out of the intensive care
unit and was doing well when
she and her mother,.who hlad,
gone up to visit him in the hos-
pital, returned home
"That was on a Saturday and
we got a call on Monday morn-

called his name and he didn't
answer so she ran out the door
to ask the doctors and nurse to
come see what was wrong.
"When they checked him
they said he'd already went
away," Isabel 'said.
Before he died, Juan Jr.'s
parents, Bea and Juan
Almendarez Sr., married on
July 20, 2Q05,,his birthday.
"They got married because
that was, their son's last wish
- that they would get married'
and be together," Isabel said.


The loss of Juan Jr. was dif-
ficult for all of the family and
all have missed him terribly
since he passed away.
Esmerelda said, "Every
night my grandma always kiss-
es my cousin through his pic-
ture and every morning we get
up and say hi to him and kiss
him."
An unexpected blessing,
however, came to the family
after Juan Jr.'s passing.
"A church lady came to me
and said that my nephew had
come to her and told her to tell
me to move on with my life
and stop crying - that he was
in a better place and that I was
going to be having another
baby," Isabel said. "He told her
that his grandmother was not
going to be without a grandson
- that she would have another
one."
Three weeks later, according
to Isabel, she found out that
she was pregnant with a son.
"He's my miracle baby," she
said. "I wasn't ready to have
another baby - and my
nephew is the one who brought
me the baby. I had him when I
was 36 weeks pregnant and I
just told my nephew, 'Thank
you for bringing him to me.' "
Cortez said of her 2-month-
old baby brother, Marcos
Antonio Small, "I take care of
him, too. When he's crying I
go into my grandma's room
and pick him up and grab his
bottle and hold it for him. It
makes me feel closer to Juan."
She hopes that her donation
to Locks of Love will help
someone and said that she's
going to keep growing it out
and donating it every time it
gets long enough.
It has to be at least 10 inch-
es, so it may be a few years
between donations; but she
would likely do it every day
because of her tender heart,
giving nature, and undying
love for her cousin.

10 tips for holiday pet




sitting satisfaction


Beware bad pet care this sea-
son.
Special to the News-Sun
BERKELEY, Calif. - With
holiday vacation season here,
many pet owners are opting to
use a pet sitter rather than a
kennel boardifig facility when
making plans for) their four-
legged family members.
This in fear of the recent
canine influenza outbreak, or
just a general preference that
pets receive the attention, affec-
tion and security needed while
their owners are away.
"Despite conventional think-
ing, however, all pet care serv-
ices are. not alike," noted
FETCH! Pet Cafe's Paul Mann,
founder of the nation's largest
and most sophisticated pet care
franchise offering professional
pet sitting and dog walking
services.
For the throngs who do plan
to use a pet sitter this season so
their animals can maintain nor-
mal activities and be nurtured in
familiar surroundings, or with
the hope of avoiding serious
health concerns associated with
kennel boarding even beyond
canine influenza - including
depression and kennel cough,
FETCH! Pet Care offers these
"Top 10 Tips Assuring Pet
Sitting Satisfaction:"
* Diligently check all of the
company's references - at least
three should be voluntarily pro-
vided;
A Ensure the company is
fully, licensed, bonded and
insured; -
* Verify that the sitter can
accommodate both your pet's
daily feeding and walking
schedule as well as your desired


vacation schedule during busy
holidays;
�'Ensure the company offers
seven-day per week telephone
and e-mail availability;
* Confirm that your sitter
has undergone a criminal back-
ground check and has received
proper training;
-* Pre-interview sitter with
your pet(s) present to observe
interactions and establish . a
"comfort level" for both you
and the pet(s);
* Clearly state how you
would like the sitter to use
his/her visit time in terms of
walking, playing, feeding,
cleaning, etc.;
* Provide medical and
behavioral history about your
pet(s) as well as veterinary and
other emergency contact infor-
mation, and gather all necessary
supplies, including food, vita-
mins, and treats in one central
location;
* Ensure company has
"backup" measures in place
should your sitter have an emer-
gency that prevents them from
completing your assignment;
* Confirm the service is a
current member of Pet Sitters
International, the world,s
largest organization for profes-
sional pet sitters;
"These tips are what we con-
sider to be the cardinal rules of
picking a professional pet sit-
ting service, Mann said. "If a
pet owner takes these ten rela-
tively simple things into
account before they entrust
their pet to an animal sitting
service, they can enjoy peace of
mind that their pet - and their
home - will be well cared for."

KEVIN J. SHUTT/News-Stm
Gerry Geouque (left), head of security for Sun 'N' Lake, and Ron Wonderling, general manager of
Turtle Run Golf Course, look at tracks at the 15th Hole's tee box allegedly left by ATV-riding vandals.


Kitson wants culprits for


doughnuts on the greens


now. . .


Vandals on wheels hit
golf courses three times
By PHIL ATIINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - The doughnuts
cost the course thousands of
dollars but aren't attracting
golfers.
In the last two weeks, riders
on all-terrain vehicles and dirt
bikes have put "doughnuts" on
the Turtle Run golf course at
Sun 'N Lake of Sebring.
On Tuesday evening, about
4-5 p.m., witnesses saw two all-
terrain vehicles, yellow and red
with an off-road motorcycle on
the 15th tee box and green.
Riders left tire ruts and took the
flag.
Golf maintenance superin-
tendent David Bell said damage
will stay visible until the season
ends in April and warmer
weather and rain spark new
growth in the Bermuda grass.
Vandals also hit the 14th hole
Tuesday, Bell said. On Sunday,
they hit the-12th hole, and on
Dec. 14, they damaged the 16th
hole.
Ron Wonderling, general
manager of the golf operation
for Kitson & Partners LLC, said
it will cost $5,000 to fix the
damage to the course, not


counting labor. The course may
also lose revenue from daily
golfers deciding not to play
through the ruts.
Turtle Run was closed from
August to Nov. 4 for the work,
Wonderling said. For now, the
course is offering golfing spe-
cials on Turtle Run until the
damage is fixed and the greens
returned to normal.
Fixing the course. and mak-
ing it profitable were the first
two' goals when Kitson &
Partners started working for the
district, Wonderling said. This
was the first year since 1981
that golf course finances were
in the black.
Gerry Geouque, director of
public safety, suspects vandals
may be riding in from the north
- perhaps from Avon Park
Lakes - along roads with no
houses and very little traffic.
If they were from local
neighborhoods, he said, resi-
dents would have seen them.
Once the riders near the golf
course, they can run through
vacant. lots along firebreaks and
maintenance trails, Geouque
said. With recent development,
land clearing has created access
points for the riders.
"It's almost impossible to


stop every uncontrolled access
we have," Geouque said.
Wonderling plans on placing
"deer cameras" - cameras on
timers - to catch riders in the
act.
"You can hear them (bikes)
after it happens," Wonderling
said. "You can hear them a mile
away."
Geouque tried to chase them
on Tuesday, but the riders
ducked down a sand trail and
Geouque didn't have four-
wheel drive.
Kitson & Partners just fin-
ished a $250,000 recondition-
ing project on Turtle Run, fix-
ing drainage basins in the fair-
ways, reshaping and resculpting
bunkers, and killing off high
counts of nematodes - root
worms - under the greens.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office is investigating
the case. Wonderling is offering
a $ 1,000 reward for information
leading to a conviction.
Residents and golfers are
being asked to keep a eye out
near the course for suspicious
vehicles or off-road riders.
Anyone with information about
the riders is asked to call the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office at 402-7200.


Reward offered in arson fire


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The State Fire
Marshal's office said the Dec.
16 fire at 3208 Bristol Street is
still being pursued as an active
criminal investigation.
The fire displaced a family of
four, a single mother and her

need of employees," said Pat have gone through periods of 8. Decrease tension at home.


Kozic, coordinator of market-
ing for the Heartland Workforce
Investment Board Inc. "We
know that being unemployed is
difficult, no matter what-time of
year - but especially during the
holidays. It's important for peo-
ple not to give up looking for
employment during the holi-
days. The Heartland Career
Connection System has three
One-Stop Centers for job seek-
ers to utilize anytime."
The One-Stop Centers are
located in Sebring, Arcadia and
Wauchula.
The following are some
guidelines to help job seekers
continue their search activities.
1. Some businesses hire part-
time workers to fill positions
created by holiday vacations or
to meet year-end demand from
customers. Part-time work is
better than no work at all. Part
time work adds to your unem-
ployment credits and is an
excellent way to show your tal-
ents to a prospective employer.
Because of the complexity of
hiring full time personnel, some
companies hire part-time
employees to evaluate how a
person fits in and meets their
expectations.
2. Don't put off applying for
full time work during the holi-
day season. Companies operat-
ing on a calendar year budget
will make decisions now about
personnel for the coming year.
Make sure your application and
resume are there for employers
when they consider hiring new
people.
3. Exploit the season by
attending parties or gatherings
and networking yourself with
people who might know of job
openings. Many times your best
source of information on job
availability is friends and
acquaintances with insider
knowledge about good jobs
currently open or jobs that com-
panies will post in the future.
While it's difficult to admit
being unemployed 'to friends
and family, these people are
essential to your person market-
ing network. They will keep
their eyes open for potential
opportunities for you.
4. Don't complicate your sit-
uation by overspending during
the holidays. Try to avoid debt
and cut expenses. Renew your
relationship with family and
friends. Many wealthy, success-
ful people look back to tight
financial times, when they were
forcedlto focus on friendship, as
some of the best, most mean-
ingful moments in their lives.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The Heartland

contracts.
The interactive, Internet-

Web cast nationwide. The eight
veterans in attendance were
able to use computers in the
HCCS training facility to par-
ticipate in the event. The Web
cast was part of an outreach


effort by the SBA to educate
veterans on programs to pro-
mote business ownership. The
SBA also covered marketing
strategies to help veterans com-
pete for federal contracts.
"It was very informative"
said Joseph E. Shannon, veter-
an and Web cast participant.
Shannon is a resident of Lake
Placid and wants to open a driv-
ing school. "The information
presented pointed me in the
right direction in getting help to
start a business."
Shannon also connected with
Bob Raymond, business .con-

Parents in raw food case get probation


Associated Press
MIAMI - The parents of a
6-month-old baby who %died
after being fed an unorthodox
raw food diet were given sus-
pended sentences and probation
Thursday for child neglect con-
victions involving their other
four children.
Miami-Dade Circuit Judge
Stanford Blake also ordered
Joseph and Lamoy Andressohn
to adhere to a host of conditions
if another judge approves reuni-
fication of their family, includ-
ing regular visits to a pediatri-
cian and a nutritionist, a parent-
ing course and a prohibition
against home schooling.


"I don't care about your diet,
but the (recommended) diet of
the children must be followed,"
Blake said.
The judge imposed five-year
suspended sentences on both
parents, to be followed by 15
years each of probation. He also
lifted a "no-contact" order that
had prevented the Andressohns
from seeing their children for
more than two years.
"If it comes to my attention
that something has happened,
that you've done something
that is not in the best interests of
your children, you will go to
prison for five years," Blake
told the Andressohns.


They could have been sen-
tenced to as much as 20 years in
prison, but Blake approved a
defense lawyers' motion for a
downward departure from sen-
tencing guidelines over the
objections of prosecutors. The
chief prosecutor on the case,
Herbert Walker III, said he was
"disappointed" in the sentence
and will appeal Blake's down-
ward departure ruling.
. The jury that convicted the
Andressohns of child neglect
acquitted them of manslaughter'

Recovery of wing parts aids


investigators after fatal crash


By PAM EASTON
Associated Press Writer
BUNA, Texas - For weeks,
Tanya and Kevin Poole and
their five children lived in tents
just outside their East Texas
home damaged by Hurricane
Rita. It took two months and
much lobbying by the Pooles
before aid finally arrived -
two FEMA trailers to live in
while they rebuild their house.
The Pooles had become vic-
tims, in a sense, of another hur-
ricane - Katrina.
After Katrina pounded the
Gulf Coast on Aug. 29, hun-
dreds of thousands of evacuees
from Louisiana were' sent' to
Texas. When Rita struck the


piney woods along the
Louisiana-Texas line a month
later, many hotels and shelters
in the region were still full with
Katrina victims. And many of
the region's houses and apart-
ments were assigned to Katrina
refugees.
As a result, people like the
Pooles are feeling like Rita's
forgotten victims.
"I want to find some kind of
normalness and I realize we are
not the only people in this situ-
ation," said Kevin Poole, a 37-
year-old print shop manager.
"There are thousands of people
that are in the same situation
that we are in."
"There are people who have


got money to pay rent who
can't find any places to live,"
said Orange County Judge Carl
Thibodeaux, the top elected
official in this county of nearly
85;000, where chemicals, steel,
paper and shipbuilding are
among the main industries.
Some residents have moved
in with relatives or are sleeping
in tents, even when the temper-
atures dip to near freezing at
night. Others have decided to
live in their damaged homes,
where mold grows on every-
thing and ceilings are propped
up with two-by-fours.
The Pooles, for example,
moved back into'one small por-
tion of their leaking home.


By LAURA WIDES-MUNOZ
Associated Press Writer
MIAMI BEACH - Divers
will return to the ocean bottom
to look for small remaining
pieces of the seaplane that
crashed just off the beach, but
the initial recovery phase of the
investigation is virtually com-
plete, federal authorities said
Thursday.
The divers will be looking
today for, small parts such as
door handles and window
frames, said acting National
Transportation Safety Board
Chairman Mark Rosenker.
About 95 percent of the aircraft
was recovered on Wednesday.
"These are very small parts,
but we want to get everything
we can from the ocean floor,"
Rosenker said.
Investigators suffered a set-
back when they learned
Wednesday the cockpit voice
recorder from a the seaplane
was unreadable. But they did
recover both parts of the plane's
cracked wing support where it
separated from the fuselage,
and video from the crash will
help investigators, Rosenker
said.
The Chalk's Ocean Airways
plane crashed off Miami Beach
shortly after takeoff on
Monday, killing all 20 people
aboard.
_ Cracks in the support beam
of the 58-year-old seaplane's
right wing are being examined
to determine if they caused the
wing to fall off. The NTSB also
is taking apart the matching left
wing support to see if there is
similar cracking and is working
with Chalk's to inspect the air-
line's other seaplanes.
Material has been sent for
inspection to labs in
Washington, where a micro-
scope will be used to examine
metal parts and cracks,
Rosenker said.
"We're particularly interest-
ed in deep cracks and any
potential corrosion," he told
The Associated Press. "The
maintenance records should
give us a better picture," as the
complex investigation contin-
ues.
Inspectors will try to deter-
mine whether fatigue cracks
could have been found and
repaired, and whether stress
was a factor in the cracking that
occurred.
Specialists planned to lay the
plane parts on a floor Thursday
for inspection after 95 percent
of the plane wreckage was
recovered from about 35 feet of
water. Crews used a crane to lift
out the left wing, an engine, a
propeller, part of the underbelly
of the fuselage and parts of two
landing gears. They also raised
baskets of debris. The right
wing was removed Tuesday.
There is a strong incentive to
work quickly, said Grant
Brophy, director of flight safety
and security at Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University, which
trains safety investigators.
Authorities want to identify a
possible cause of the crash so
operators of similar aircraft can
be notified of potential hazards,
he said.
Eighteen passengers and two
crew members were killed in
Monday's crash. Only 19 bod-
ies have been recovered. At
least 11 victims were returning
home to the Bahamian island of
Bimini, many of them after
Christmas shopping jaunts.
Chalk's voluntarily grounded
its fleet Wednesday for inspec-
tion after investigators revealed
that cracks in the wing's sup-
port beam were the apparent
cause of the wing's separation
from the plane. Chalk's oper-
ates four other seaplanes, all the
same model that crashed. The


grounding came the same day
federal investigators said they
were trying to determine why
the airline had apparently not
discovered the cracks.
Chalk's was cooperating
with investigators to find main-
tenance and operations records

'We are particu-

larly interested

in deep cracks.'
MARK ROSENKER
to determine what damaged the
beam that held the wing to the
fuselage, Rosenker said.
He stopped short of saying
the cracking was the sole reason
the right wing fell off the plane
shortly after it took off for the
Bahamas. The full investigation
may take up to a. year to com-
plete, Rosenker said.
It would require "very
.sophisticated testing," such as a
special dye that penetrates the
aluminum structure, said Bill
English, NTSB investigator in
charge of the Chalk's crash.
The Federal Aviation
Administration took 'no imme-
diate action against Chalk's,
spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen


said
"These are trying times for
this great airline. But we will be
back in the air very soon,"
Chalk's general manager Roger
Nair said in a statement.
The plane was retrofitted in
the 1980s with more powerful
engines, but it wasn't clear if
that played any role in the
cracking, Rosenker said. The
engines' installer said it should
not have played any role.
Chalk's, which flies between
Florida and the Bahamas, had
net losses of $244,000 on oper-
ating revenues of $5.4 nfillion
in 2002, according to data from
the federal Bureau of
Transportation Statistics.
Current owner Jim
Confalone bought Chalk's after
it was forced into involuntary
bankruptcy in 1999 under pre-
vious management when credi-
tors sued the airline.
The plane that crashed had
few major reported incidents,
and no passengers or crew were
injured in any of them, accord-
ing to the FAA.

Lifestyle
-." I ',y


Anecki article
Recently, I changed my
excite.com homepage to
include links to more online
newspapers, including my
home newspaper and some
of the better known national
newspapers. One of the
national newspapers offers
"the day in pictures." Check
out
www. usatoday. com/news/ga
llery/2005/11-13-
day/flash.htm No. 8 for one
of the coolest pictures I've
ever seen.
Excite.com also features
"Oddly Enough News,"
where I read an article
about the ninth largest
country in the World:
Kazakhstan. Actually, I had
never heard of this country
and wanted to learn more
about it. In searching for
information, I found a Web
site that I'm still exploring:
www.aneki.conm/largest.html

There are so many lists
of fascinating facts avail-
able on this Web site. For.
instance, would you believe
the United States actually
ranks ninth in the most tele-
vision watchers? Thailand
tops that list. How about
Venezuela winning the most
Miss World and Miss
Universe titles? The United
States has 269 billionaires;
runner-up Japan has 29 and
Saudi Arabia only has eight.
After looking at the lists
for incidences of different
kinds of cancer, I am glad
to say the United States
doesn't rank in the top 10
of most of them, although
we do rank No. 1 for uter-
ine cancer. However, I'm
not surprised the United
States is not in the top 10 of
the World's Best Airports;
-China and Singapore claim
the number 1 and 2 places,
respect \ely. Sadly, we also
are not in the top 10 for
gender equality.
Seven of the top 10 most
expensive United States-
cities are in Californmia, and
none of them are in Florida.
Neither are any of the least
expensive cities in Florida,
though. If you want to live
a long time, you need to
move to Andorro, San
Marino or Singapore. The
United States doesn't even
place in the top 20 countries
for longevity.
The most corrupt world
leaders, list is based on how
much money they've
embezzled. The top five of
the list have gotten away
with billions.
Did you know that Iraq
has the highest household
size in the world - 77.
Thankfully, Iraq is not in
the top 10 of nuclear
weaponry, unlike Russia
who has more than double
the number of nuclear war-
heads as the United States.
France is a far distant third
place in the arms race.
Perhaps the most aston-
ishing statistic was the
highest divorce rate, in the
Republic of Maldives,
which can be seen at
www.visitmaldives.com/Mal
dives/geography.php. The
Web site says Maldives is a
paradise of 1,190 islands in
the Indian Ocean, with only
202 of the islands inhabited.
Perhaps it is not that great
of a paradise if they have
such a high incidence of
divorce.
When you think you
have got it bad, think of
Liberia with 85 percent
unemployment or picture
yourself in Tombouctou at
130.1 degrees.

'Kong' rules theatres with a less-than-


expected $50.15 million turn-out


By DAVID GERMAIN
AP Movie Writer
LOS ANGELES - "King
Kong" was less of a box-office
brute than Hollywood expected,
taking in $50.15 million in its
first weekend, a sturdy start but
unremarkable by Hollywood
blockbuster standards.
Universal Pictures' action
spectacle about a giant ape took
over the top box-office spot
from Disney's "The Chronicles
of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch
and the Wardrobe," which
slipped to second place with
$31.2 million and lifted its 10-
day total to $112.5 million,
according to studio estimates
released Sunday.
Premiering at No. 3 with
$12.7 million was 20th Century
Fox's ensemble comic drama
"The Family Stone," featuring
Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane
Keaton, Luke Wilson and
Claire Danes in a tale of an
uptight businesswoman meet-
ing her fiance's relations during
a holiday visit.
The cowboys-in-love drama
"Brokeback Mountain," which
led the Golden Globes with
seven nominations, broke into
the top 10 with $2.4 million


playing in just 69 theaters, com-
pared to 3,568 for "King
Kong."
Hollywood analysts general-
ly expected "King Kong" to
have a debut weekend at least in
the $60 million range. Though
it came in lower than expected,
"King Kong" led Hollywood to
a solid weekend, with the top 12
movies grossing $121.2 mil-
lion, up 22 percent from the
same weekend last year.
That was good news heading
into the holidays, when studios
are counting on a strong finish
to help snap a prolonged slump
in which movie attendance has
fallen 7 percent compared with
last year.
Peter Jackson's remake of
"King Kong" did out-gross the
opening weekend of his "The
Lord of the Rings: The
Fellowship of the Ring," the
first of his J.R.R. Tolkien fanta-
sy trilogy that debuted with
$47.2 million. But factoring in a
12 percent rise in admission
prices since that 2001 film's
release, "King Kong" sold
about 7.9 million ' tickets,
450,000 fewer than
"Fellowship of the Ring."
And "King Kong" did not


measure up to the first five days
of "Fellowship of the Ring,"
which debuted on a Wednesday
and had grossed $75.1 million
domestically by Sunday. Also
opening Wednesday, "King
Kong" got to $66.2 million in
its first five days.
Still, distributor Universal
was high on the long-term
prospects for the film, which
received rave reviews both as a
visual-effects spectacle and as a
drama about a majestic ape that
falls for a woman (Naomi
Watts).
Along with its domestic haul,
"King Kong" took in $80 mil-
lion overseas in its first five
days.
The studio hopes "King
Kong" follows the long-term
pattern of another three-hour
epic, "Titanic," which opened
with a modest $28.6 million
weekend then sailed on to
become the modem box-office
champ with $600 million
domestically.
"The expectation or the
guessing or hypothesizing of
what it was going to do is based
on a lot of misunderstanding
and ignorance over how a three-
hour movie plays that doesn't


come with.legions of fans," said
Marc Shmuger, vice chairman
of Universal Pictures, who
brushed aside suggestions that
"King Kong" had not lived up
to expectations. "This is not
Tolkien. This is not the 'Harry
Potter' fan base."
Grosses for "King Kong"
jumped 40 percent from Friday
to Saturday, a huge increase foo
a non-family film and a sign
that good word-of-mouth was
pulling in audiences, said Paul
Dergarabedian, president of
box-office tracker Exhibitor
Relations.
"A movie like 'King Kong'
just automatically creates an
expectation that it will break all
kinds of box-office records,"
Dergarabedian said. "But much
like 'Titanic,' which started
very slow, sometimes it's not
always about opening week-
ends.
Sometimes, it's how the film
plays in the long run."
Estimated ticket sales for
Friday through Sunday at U.S.
and Canadian theaters, accord-
ing to Exhibitor Rellations Co.
Inc.
Final figures will be released
Monday.


By DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer
NEW YORK - Starting
next week, the company that
measures what people watch on
television will also follow what
they record on DVRs to watch
later.
The move by Nielsen Media
Research is a reflection of how
the traditional notion of watch-
ing TV is changing. And if
Nielsen's numbers show that
- new technology is also chang-
ing what people are watching, it
has the potential to profoundly
disrupt a multibillion-dollar
business.
An estimated 7 percent of the
nation's 110 million homes
with televisions now have digi-
tal video recorders, and that's
expected to rise to one quarter
of the TV population by some-
time in 2007, Nielsen said.
Until now, Nielsen has
bypassed these DVR homes
when it signs up the estimated
9,000 families that make up its
national sample of homes.
These so-called Nielsen fami-
lies provide the basis for its rat-
ings, which make a show a hit
or flop.
DVR homes will be included
starting Dec. 26, said Karen
Gyimesi, company spokes-
woman.


It has taken this long partly
because the Nielsen "people
meters" that record what fami-
lies are watching weren't
equipped to handle DVRs, she
said.
The company's new
"active/passive meters" can,
however. And with the help of a
code embedded in a program by
the television networks, they
can tell when something that
has been recorded is actually
watched. They even know when
people fast-forward through
commercials.
"The most significant impact
that it will have is that it will
show the top-rated television
shows will have a higher audi-
ence with a significant amount
of playback," said David
Poltrack, top researcher for
CBS and UPN.
Testing over the past year has
revealed what seems to be com-
mon sense: popular shows like
"CSI: Crime Scene
Investigation" and "Desperate
Housewives" are the most like-
ly to be taped and watched later,
Nielsen said.
But since people with DVRs
tend to watch more television
than people without them, the
data also may help smaller, cult
favorites. Tests revealed that the
WB's "Smallville," for exam-


pie, was watched at double the
' rate in DVR homes than in
homes without the device.
Nielsen each week has given
its clients - mostly TV net-
works, advertisers and ad agen-
cies - a list'of how many peo-
ple watch each program live
each week.
Now, Nielsen will offer three
lists: the number of people who
watch a show live; the number
who watch it live or within 24
hours; and the number of peo-
ple who watch it live or within
a week.
An estimated 90 percent of
people who record programs
play them back within a week,
Nielsen said.
The immediate effect will
likely be minor, since only
about 100 DYR homes will be
included in the firstweek's sur-
vey.
But Nielsen plans to gradual-
ly add families and by summer
it expects to have DVR homes
in its survey that mirror the per-
centage of such homes in the
nation as a whole, Gyimesi
said. .
It's not clear what Nielsen is
going to do with its most explo-
sive information - how many
people zip through the ads.
Surveys have found nine of
10 people claim to do that, but


TV networks believe this is
exaggerated. If they're wrong,
it could cost them: advertisers
may look for lower prices if
they have solid evidence of how
many commercials are skipped.
An indication of how worried
industry leaders are came last
month when all of the broadcast
network research executives
took the unusual step of appear-
ing together at a news confer-
ence.
They claimed Nielsen's new
numbers will show more televi-
sion viewing, and that even if
people zip through a commer-
cial most of the time the mes-
sage gets through.
"There is nothing in that mix
that will devalue the value of
network television," Poltrack
said. "In fact, I think it will be
exactly the opposite."
Meanwhile, technology
marches on. Poltrack had to cut
short an interview to meet with
Nielsen about plans to measure
how many people watch pro-
gramming through video on
demand.
That's not taken into account
now by Nielsen. But Gyimesi
said the technology to measure
this is similar to that for DVRs,
and Nielsen expects to begin
including VOD numbers by the
middle of next year.


Rude remarks and behavior by



neighbor create hard feelings


Dear Abby:
My elderly mother lives in a
small efficiency apartment.
Last year, my out-of-town sib-
lings - all of whom live with-
in 50 miles - visited her on
Christmas Day with gifts she
could not possibly use.
One sister brought a set of
heavy crystal glasses.
(Mother's hands shake, and she
uses a plastic drinking cup with
a handle.)
Another sister brought a sil-
ver tea service (which I had to
pack in a'closet for her). My
brother brought her two pieces
of heavy luggage (which took
up all the room in a closet).
Mama no longer is up to
entertaining, and all those
expensive gifts were useless to
her. She has tried "hinting" that
she doesn't need things like
that, but they refuse to listen.
It would be so much more
helpful if they would instead
cook a meal for Mama, or stop
by a restaurant and bring her a
meal when they visit.
When they visit, they usually
stop by a restaurant and eat, but
they never stop to consider that
Mama would love a meal, too.
I try to cook for her as often
as I can, but I have a disabled


child at home who is
in and out of the hos-
pital.
When I do cook, I
package meals for
her that she can
microwave and
enjoy. What a help it
would be if my sib-
lings would do this.
Why don't people DEAI
stop and take into
consideration how a Jeanne
person lives and what ""
his or her needs are
before buying a gift? Thanks
for letting me vent.
Christine in South
Carolina


Dear Christine:
It may be that doing what
you suggest takes too much
time and energy. Or, in the case
of your siblings, the motivation
for the expensive gifts may be
guilt.
You can't change them, but I
do recommend you remind
them frequently how much your
mother would appreciate it if
they would bring her a nice
meal when they visit, and how
much easier it would make her
life.
Dear Abby:
My family and I have lived in

e Phillips


our subdivision for
10 years. . We are
friendly with the
neighbors. All of the
children here play

and are of various

recovering from a
fallout involving her


eldest daughter.
We are trying to repair the
friendship, but it has reached
the point that I hate living here.
Rachel is jealous of anyone I
spend time with if it's not her.
She is constantly out in her
yard, and I feel like she watch-
es everything I do and who
comes and goes.
When I spend time with other
neighbors, she retaliates with
rudeness and with negative,
insulting comments and behav-
ior.
How can I get across to her
that although we may have been
close friends at one time, we're
now only friendly neighbors?
Wants to move in Ohio
Dear wants to move:
It appears Rachel has emo-


tionally regressed to the gram-
mar school level, where chil-
dren assume that if they are
friends they "own" each other.
I see no reason to issue any
proclamations. Get your mes-
sage across by continuing to
have an active social life with
neighbors you enjoy..
If she makes a nasty com-
ment, tell her: "You know, snip-
ing is a very unattractive trait.
It makes me want to see less of
you rather than more."

SANTA
Continued from 10B
Dear Santa,
I hope you've been having a
great year. I hope Mrs. Claus is
helping with ow the toys that the
kids want this year. I've been
trying to be good to yet wut I
want. On my list I waqnt a lava

little ball to ceep rober ou
away from my house. And
armdilos they ceep coming to
my dad's yard. en and he think
it is my dog.
Thank you for sheryn this
time reading my letter.
Sergio Merriera

Dear Santa,
I hope you've had the nices
year in the world. Have
Rudolph been eating his veg-
gies so his nose can be lighter
than a flashlight? I sure hope
so. I've been very well behave.
More than anything I want big
twins Bratz. If I had big twin
Bratz I would be in my room
minding my own busniss.I
would not be bothering my
mom. The next thing I really
won't from you is a Mcflury
maker. If I had a Mcflury
maker I would not have to beg
my mom to take me to
Mcdonals. I would be so happy
to make it myself and put what
ever I want in it.would be so
fun making it by myself.

Dear Santa,.
I hope you are doing all
right. Deos Mrs. Claus have a
cold? I have been a perfect
angel.
One of the things I would
like for christmas is a game-
boy. The reason why I would
like a gameboy is because I
could solve all the problems
and it would help me learn.
The second thing I would
like is a build-a-bear.The rea-
son why I would like a build-
a-bear is so my bitty baby
would have a big sister.

Is rudeness becoming an American epidemic?


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor

SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


A high cost

How often can we afford to keep rebuilding after major
hurricanes? Can anyone continue to pay ever-increasing
insurance premiums, special assessments for public util-
ities and repeated repair costs indefinitely?
Will our economy be stressed to a breaking point by
more storms seasons like 2004 and 2005? What can be
done to reduce costs and ease the burden on individuals
and the system'? More importantly, can our society alter
its lifestyles to prevent severe losses in lives and proper-
ty and reduce the economic impact?
Those and other questions are raised by a two-part
study of disasters and their economic effects published in
September by the University of Colorado.
The study by Roger A. Pielke, director of the universi-
ty's climate center, and Christopher Landsea, of the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, say
the true extent of economic losses from storms have not
been accurately calculated.
As an example, the University of South Florida found
that a one-day electrical outage in the Tampa Bay area
caused a $23 million loss to the area economy in lost
wages, etc. Multiply that figure by the number of days
without electric power in Florida and on the Gulf coast,
and the true but unspoken cost of the storms in terms of
lost wages starts to emerge.
Pielke says lost wages translate into missed mortgage
payments, late or nonpayment of all forms of debt and
the loss of normal economic activities, such as the pur-
chase of food, clothing, fuel and other necessities. Loss
of sales translates into reduced tax collections of all sorts.
No one has tried to implement such policies since the
hearing.
After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the Florida
Legislature strengthened building codes in part of the
state. Structures built under the stricter code fared much
better than other buildings, according to state officials.
Pielke estimates that if no other changes are made, and
growth continues, a South Florida hurricane in 2020
might wreak physical damages and economic losses
totaling $500 billion. The scholar offers no suggestions'
as to how the economy could absorb such a loss.
The meeting Pielke attended in Washington in 2001,
was titled "Weatherproofing America," but little has been
done to achieve that goal. As this storm season showed,
the intensity, frequency and geography of storm activity
is not just Florida's problem. This is a national concern;
- it needs to be addressed accordingly.

An editorial excerpt from The Tribune of Fort Pierce.


Hi-12 on the

road again
Editor:
" On Dec. 14, a group of mem-
bers from Lake Placid Hi-12
Club and Sebring Club and
many friends went on another
trip.
The bus left Lake Placid and
Sebring and headed for
Orlando to see the Christmas
show at the Dolly Parton Dixie
Stampede. Upon arriving, we
were 'very well greeted and
entertained by a piano player,
singer and a magician. We then
entered the arena where the
"feast" was going to begin.
Wow, what a big place.
The entertainment during the
meal was great. Lots of horses,
animals of all kinds, ice
skaters, fun games were played
by the workers and volunteers
from the audience.
The Nativity Scene was per-
formed in very good taste. It
was an inspiring sight to see it
re-enacted by real people. Even
the angel came down from
heaven at the end of the pro-
gram.
Santa Claus came riding in
on his sleigh and the enthusi-
asm from the children there
was overwhelming. The kids
were out in full force (at least
300) and gave him a thunder-
ous applause.
We had a great meal and the
servers were just terrific. No
one went away with hunger
pangs but rather with pains of
"we ate too much. A great time
was had by all. This show is a
good family show and done in
very good taste.
Our bus driver "Brian" was a
good sport and seemed to enjoy
us "recycled teenagers" and our
antics on the bus.
It is great to be able to get
out, in a big group and enjoy
new friends and reacquaint
with old ones. Our club enjoys
these outings as it'helps us to be
a friendlier club.
So until the next one, wish-
ing a great holiday season to
all.

Many helped

with Toy Run
Editor:
On Dec. 3, Inerstate Chapter
of ABATE .of Florida held its
20th annual Toy Run. All the
, preparations were made, flyers
sent out, businesses and private
contributors were contacted
and the Elks Club of Sebring
hosted us this year.
We had more than 200
motorcycles from various
organizations and clubs attend.
Several notices were put in
both local newspapers, so
everyone had ample time to
make arrangements to attend;
everyone that is, except the two
local newspapers.
The run started as it always
does at Museum Avenue in
Avon Park, right in front of the
Avon Park Historic Depot. Line
up began at 11 aI.m. and the
police escorted, ride left at 1
p.m., with Santa in front. As
always, there was a prayer of
thanks for being able to be a
part of this charitable event, for
.living in a country whose citi-
zens take care of their own, for
the local police and sheriff's
department involved and for
safety.
The police led us down U.S.
27 to Lake Placid, to Interlake
Boulevard, around Park Drive
and back out to U.S. 27 North
to Sebring. We then turned on
Lakeview Drive and went
around the Circle in town and
back down Lakeview to the
Elks Club on Lake Jackson.
The Elks donated their facil-
ity for the Toy Run and we
thank them from the bottom of
our hearts. Inerstate had a com-
plete turkey dinner with all the
trimmings for a $10 donation.
This was followed by door
prize drawings and a 50/50
drawing. The highlight of the
evening for this writer was the
auction and the $800 that was
raised by the haircut suffered
by the auctioneer, (that would
be me).
Many of the businesses in
Highlands County contributed

Like so many others, I am
ready to bring this year to an
end.
For the most part it was a
great year. but the month of
December started off bad with
the hard drive on my work com-
puter being the first of two to
crash in two days and computer
problems lingering on through
today.
However, we are getting
closer, ever so closer, to having
things back to close to the way
they were before the disaster
hit.
Anyway, as I was cleaning
up some stuff on my desk the
other night I came across a few
things that I had wanted to
share.
One was a little snippet out
of the Journal Star in Peoria,
Ill.
In October, the Journal Star
opined that there is a rudeness
epidemic in America. It report-
ed that an Associated Press-
Ipsos,poll found that 70 percent
of those surveyed feel people
are snippier and more vulgar
than 30 years ago.
It said there are four species
hastening the demise of civility.

Great way to

preserve history

Editor:
I would .like to commend
Dan Andrews for preserving
two houses built in the 1920s
,and 1930s, on Lakeview Drive.
Brett Johnson knows what he is
doing so far as moving these
houses in the right direction.
He has been asked to quote
prices on several other build-
ings in our area. This is a great
way to preserve the history of
Sebring and Highlands County.
His prices are in line with
making the building moves
economical. I hope the counties
and cities help in this worth-
while effort to help growth
without losing the character
and beautiful history. That is
one large, reason my wife and I
moved here from the Miami
area.
While being in the demoli-
tion business, I witnessed the
destruction of many homes and
buildings that should never
have been destroyed forever for
the sake of development. I
grew up in Miami Springs with
a circle much like Sebring.
The people here are some of
the nicest and most helpful per-
sons that we have ever met
making it a big pleasure to live
here.
We have a mural on the front
of our house , dolphins, turtles
and fish - which we enjoy.
Lake Placid could save the two
murals on the building that is
being demolished at Interlake
Boulevard and-U.S. 27 South.
They can be cut away from the
existing building and be relo-
cated to another location or be
incorporated into the new
building that is going to be
built, preserving history and the
beauty of a now deceased artist
and a city making a commit-
ment to the murals to which
Lake Placid is well known for.
* Go visit these murals, a fam-
ily feeding a family. See if you
and your children would want
to lose this wonderful and
beautiful painting forever. I'll
help!

Why should we

He acknowledged it was a
good thing that 'Saddam

U.S. forces. Then lie added:
"But there is still violence
there."
That's when it hit me.
Now I understand why the
Bill Clintons, the Hillarys, the
John Kerrys. the Howard
Deans and the Murthas want us
to get out of Iraq now. Because
"there is still violence there."
In other words, if Iraq was
100 percent pacified, it would
mean we should keep U.S.
troops there indefinitely as we
have in Germany, Bosnia,
Kosovo and probably a hun-
dred other "peacekeeping" mis-
sions around the world.
However, if our forces meet
resistance, we should pull them
out or "redeploy them," as
Murtha explains it.
This was an amazing admis-
sion by Murtha. It was a wake-
up call to me. There are many

why we would go to all the

dictator - who supported ter-

(where was thile outrage fro

because he didn't like them. He
starved and withheld medical

depositing the oil for food

cials and leaders of the United

It is quite conceivable that if
we left Iraq today the current
government would shortly be
replaced by one worse than
Saddam Hussein.

I've also been known to go

it seems that they just can't get
all of the garbage in the truck.
"3. The brute. This beast lets
elevator doors close on elderly
folks and cuts in bank lines,
always with a blank stare of
detachment."
I've seen a few of these, but
what really irks me are the peo-
ple with their shopping carts
piled high going through the
express lane.
The other night we were at a
local store and the man in front
of me had a slew of itenis in his
cart. As if that wasn't bad
enough, he paid for a few items
with one check. a few more
items with another check and
all of the grocci ies with yet
another check.
Can you say uiuuugggghhh-
hhlil! Especially during this


where they will not be attacked.
They believe in retreating,
withdrawing and redeploying
from areas where they must
engage in combat.
Personally, 1 don't want to
see American troops spend one
more day than is necessary in
Iraq. But it seems painfully
obvious to me that the mission
will he completed when the
violence subsides, not when the
enemy is attacking.
We have plenty of long-com-
pleted missions around the
world from which we can bring
the troops home now.
Why do we have troops
deployed in Germany? What
are they doing there besides
stimulating the Germany econ-
onmy? They were placed there
during the Cold War to deter a
Soviet invasion. The Soviet
Union has been gone for more
than a decade. Isn't it safe to
bring them home?
But by Murtha's definition
of a good military engagement,
there is no violence there. So
the troops stay.
Do you understand this
logic?
Speaking of missions coin-
pleted, can someone tell me
when U.S. Troops will be com-
ing home from the Balkans?
These were deployments made
by the last administration. (By
the w ay. there were no weapons
of mass destruction found. And

And finally, the Journal Star
concludes with:
"4. The slacker. This casual
creature is recognizable by its
trademark attire: pajamas at the
grocery, flip-flops at church,
ratty jeans at work."
Yet signs of a more advanced
civilization abound.
Some restaurants and bars
are banning cell phones. The
Journal Star reports that Peoria
is enforcing litter and noise
ordinances. More workplaces
are canning casual Friday.
Someday, a nicer culture may
even welcome such measures
with two rarely heard words:
thank you.
I already have a resolution
set for myself for the new year.
Hopefully there will be some
out there who will resolve to be
less rude..

Someone once said to me, "I
Dick Nelson hate Christmas."
Sebring At first, I felt disheartened.
.But, then, he explained further
about the commercialization and
SIons pressure to buy - all within a
letter to the stressfully specific and short time
o 2227 U.S. frame. As I contemplated his com-
*bring, FL ments and listened to his heart, I
o 385-1954; discerned his frustration with the
iitor@news- dismantling of the true meaning of
Christmas and what it has become
instead.


My probing
thoughts made me
think of Jesus; not
as a babe in a
, manger, but as a
grown man who
loved to celebrate
all the Jewish
feasts and holi-
S " days. Yet - on
one occasion right
TIONS after his triumphal
entry into
erop Jerusalem - he
- displayed right-
eous anger toward
those who had commercialized the
Passover, the very celebration he
had come to fulfill.
-He overthrew the tables of the
money changers and chastised
them for making his Father's
house "a den of robbers" instead
of a house of prayer.
It must grieve his heart to see
how we give him a token place in
our celebrations (if that) while
aggrandizing all that is fantasy.
I'm not saying that we shouldn't
have fun with our children or
enjoy the sparkling beauty of the
season.
But, let's go deeper with our
children. Remember this season is
about a Child.
Let's stir their imaginations to
see not "sugarplums dancing in
the heads" or what will be under,
the Christmas tree; but, give them
a vision of a great King. Dazzle
them with who he is and what his
powers are like. Show them the
intricacies of his created world,,
the staggering display of stars in
the night sky - dependably there
every night - and what it must be
like to live in eternity.
Tell them of his love. A love so
great, so unconditional, so unfail-
ing that he was willing to put all
his riches and powers aside and


come to earth. Amaze them that
God who never had skin on would
confine himself to skin like ours
and come to earth just as they'did,
by being born as'a little, helpless
baby.
And, then, let the quiet wonder
seep into their souls.
Children are drawn to. Jesus.
They know he is good; he values,
loves and esteem-them. And,
they instinctively desire to love
him.
He is the Light of the world
who came to take us out of dark-
ness and save us. When our chil-
dren live daily in the light of his
love and celebrate his birthday
each year, their understanding and
faith increases; preparing them to
receive the greatest gift of all.
"For unto us a child is born, to
us a son is given, and the govern-
ment will be on-his-shoulders. And
he will be called Wonderful
Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of
Peace." (Isaiah 9: 6, NIV)
When Christ lives in our hearts,
we can bridge the gap between
what Christmas has become and
what it truly is. We can allow our
hearts to be moved by the love put
there by the Spirit of Christmas
living within, drawing others to
the God of our joyous celebration.
Let's hold this-"Wonder" child
out to our children to touch and
see every facet - like the jewel he
is. Nothing else will dazzle them
or us like a relationship with the
Living God. He astounds us with
his magnificent presence.
Consequently, all the other raz-
zle-dazzle takes its rightful place.
He is-the shining focus and all else
is to our backs.

America's lowest-priced German mid-sized sedan


By ANN M. JOB
For The Associated Press
You won't find a 2006 mid-
size sedan from Germany with
a starting price that's less than
the Volkswagen Passat's.
But price isn't the only note-
worthy feature of the
redesigned and re-engineered,
new-generation Passat. It also
has an upscale exterior, plenti-
ful standard features and
European-style handling that's
distinctive in the mainstream
family sedan class.
A base, 2006 Passat four-
door model with turbocharged,
four-cylinder engine and'manu-
al transmission starts 'at
$23,565. A Passat with auto-
matic transmission starts at
$24,640 and it's also available
with 'a V6 at a much higher
starting price of $30,565.
But even the V6 model is
priced less than mid-size sedans
from other German marquees
such as BMW, Audi and
Mercedes-Benz, which start at
more than $43,000.
Indeed, the lowest-priced
BMW sedan, the smaller-sized
325i compact, has a starting
MSRP, including destination
charge, of $31,595.
Introduced in the United
States in 1996, the Passat is the
second most popular VW in this
country, after the smaller-sized
Jetta. But Passat sales have
struggled in recent years,
declining from a record 96,142
in calendar 2002 to an estimat-
ed . 2005 tally of less than.
50,000.
One issue has been the car's
interior size, which has been
smaller in some dimensions
than that of more popular mid-
size sedans, such as the Toyota
- Camry and Chevrolet Impala.

You won't find a 2006 mid-size sedan from Germany with a starting price that's less than the
Volkswagen Passat.


For 2006, the Passat is 3
inches wider and 3 inches
longer, overall, than its prede-
cessor.
The new width helps
improve passenger shoulder
room. But even in the new
model, the 54.6 inches of rear-
seat shoulder room doesn't
match the 56.7 inches in the
2006 Camry, and three adults in
the back of the Passat sit close
to each other.
At least they have competi-
tive legroom of 37.7 inches
back there, not to mention three
adjustable head restraints and
supportive seats. Still, the mid-
dle person in back must contend
with a large hump in the floor.
But ithe Passat continues to
lag some competitors, in trunk
space. Cargo volume is 14.2
cubic feet versus the Camry's
16.7, for example.
As for the new exterior look,
there's something about the

sedan.
At the front, the Passat's
wide girth of shiny silver grill-
work seems a bit heavy-handed
and Audi-like.
There are only compliments,
though, about the Passat interi-
or. Ceiling material is nicely
textured, seats are attractive,
gauges and controls are func-
tional, not fussy, and interior
trim pieces fit together precisely
- all adding up to a well-craft-
ed, upscale appearance.
Even the material that covers
the rear parcel shelf behind the
back seats is upscale and not the
fuzzy, cheap stuff used for
years in other cars.
Better yet, much of the
Passat's equipment is standard,
not optional. This includes a
steering wheel that telescopes

as well as tilts, two front seats

and rear seat coverings instead
of static-producipg fabric.
In addition, floor mats are
standard in the Passat, which
comes with a manufacturer's
comprehensive new-car war-
ranty that runs for four
years/50,000 miles. This com-
pares with a three-year/36,000-

And the Passat doesn't skimp
on safety items, which include
standard stability control, tire
pressure monitor, traction con-
trol and front-seat crash-active

also are standard.
Even head curtain airbags
and front-seat side airbags are
standard on all Passats.

bocharged four cylinder. This is
more horsepower than some
V6s generate. For example, the
3-liter V6 in the 2006 Camry
has peak horsepower of 190.
But the most palpable power
in the test Passat was the get-
up-and-go torque, which hits its
maximum of 207 foot-pounds
at a low 1,800 rpm. In fact, this
peak torque is available.through
the rpm range from 1,800 to
5,000, which means it's there
when needed in most driving
situations.
In the test car with six-speed
automatic transmission, for
example, power came on in a
strong, steady fashion when I
wanted to get around slower
cars or merge safely into traffic.
The automatic transmission
was a $1,075 option in the tester
and included a shift-it-yourself
Tiptronic mechanism so I could
move from gear to gear, sans
clutch pedal, on my own. But I
often found I didn't have to fuss
with shifting down into a low
gear to get a fresh surge of
power.
I did hear some turbo whine
now and then, and there was
noticeable wind noise at high-
way speeds.

responsive engine is worth
mentioning. Specifically, the
Passat with turbocharged four
.cylinder and manual transmis-
sion is rated at 23 miles a gallon
in city driving and 32 mpg on
the highway, according to the
Environmental Protection
Agency.
The rating drops only slight-
ly to 22/31 mpg for a four-
cylinder model with an auto-
matic.
Both ratings put the Passat in
the top 20 in fuel economy in
the EPA's family sedan catego-
ry.
A firm. suspension and a
wider stance than its predeces-
sors also helped the Passat wind
pleasantly through mountain
twists.
It was a pretty easy traveler
on long straightaways, too, but
riders usually felt some of the
road in the form of mild vibra-
tions. The ride is not overly
damped, and it's certainly not
cushioned.
Brakes worked strongly with
almost a grabby feel at times.
New Passats with VW's
4Motion all-wheel-drive system
are just starting to make their
way to U.S. dealerships. A sta-
tion wagon will arrive later in
the .2006 model year.

DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
(File No. 0231404-002) to Randy Tubbs, Pres-
ident, RAM Peat, LLC, 4665 U.S. Highway 27
South, Sebring, Florida 33870, to the appli-
cant, RAM Peat, LLC, applied on July 8, 2004,
to the Department of Environmental Protec-
tion for a permit/water quality certification to
construct a surface water management sys-
tem associated with a new 99-acre peat mine.
Mining activities are proposed to be within an
agricultural area that is currently engaged in
the production of corn for cattle feed and oth-
er crops. Excavated peat will be stockpiled on
site for curing prior to being to be transported
to an off-site soil processing facility. The haul
road between the mine area and Dressel Road
will be widened in the uplands to a 20-to 30-
foot width.
The approximately 80 acres of peat excava-
tion will be to a maximum depth of 30 feet be-
low the current grade. Wetland impacts asso-
ciated with the project will be limited to the
excavation of 6.44 acres of manmade surface
water ditches. The wetland mitigation plan re-
quires the creation of a 2.75-acre littoral shelf
by grading the shoreline line from current
grade down to 80.3 feet at a 4H:!V
(horizontal:vertical) slope. Below 80.3 feet, the
slopes will be approximately 2H:1V.
The project area will be mined in a series
of 7-acre cells. Within the area of future Cell 8,
a temporary above ground storage area will be
constructed to contain pumped water during
the mining of the first cell. After the mining of
Cell 1, water from each active cell will be
pumped to previously mined cells. Hydrologic
monitoring is included to protect groundwater
levels outside the project area. The project will
be capable of containing a 25-year, 24-hour
storm event. This permit does not authorize
discharges from the project area of stormwa-
ter or pumped ground water.
No impervious areas will be constructed.
The post-mining land use will be 12.5 acre of
improved pastures, 1.2 acres of reservoirs
(ditch through uplands), 2.75 acres of herba-
ceious littoral zone wetlands, and 82.4 acres
of an open water lake. All areas disturbed by
mining shall meet the reclamation standards
of Part IV of Chapter 378, F.S. The construc-
tion phase, which includes mining and recla-
mation, is estimated to be fifteen years. The
future land use is expected to be agricultural.
The project is located approximately 5
miles east of U.S. Highway 27 along State
Road 64, then north on dressel Road, Sec-
tions 7 and 8, Township 33 South, Range 29
East, in Highlands County.
Under this intent to issue, the permit is


hereby granted subject to the applicant's com-
pliance with any requirement in this intent to
publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of
general circulation and to provide proof of
such publication in accordance with section
50.051, F.S. This action is final and effective
on the date filed with the Clerk of the Depart-
ment unless a sufficient petition for an admin-
istrative hearing is timely filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S., as provided below.
If a sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed, this intent to issue au-
tomatically becomes only proposed agency
action on the application, subject to the result
of the administrative review process. There-
fore, on the filing of a timely and sufficient pe-
tition, this action will not be final and effective
until further order of the Department. When
proof of publication is provided, if required by
this intent, and if a sufficient petition is not
timely filed, the permit will be issued as a
ministerial action. Because an administrative
hearing may result in the reversal or substan-
tial modification of this action, the applicant is
advised not to commence construction or oth-
er activities until the deadlines noted below,


1050 uoo,,
for filing a petition for an administrative hear-
ing or request for an extension of time, have
expired and until the permit has been execut-
ed and delivered. Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action may peti-
tion for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32380-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person
whose substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may also request an ex-
tension of time to file a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for extension of
time must be filed with the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32380-3000, before the applicable
deadline. A timely request for extension of
time shall toll the running of the time period
for filing a petition until the request is acted
upon. If a request if filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a motion by the re-
questing party showing that the failure to file a
request for an extension of time before the
deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
the outcome of the administrative process
have the right to petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Intervention will be permitted on-
ly at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance with
rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with rule 62-110.106(3),
F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within 21 days
of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed
by any persons other than the applicant, and
other than those entitled to written notice un-
der subsection 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed
within 21 days of publication of the notice or
within 21 days of receipt of the written notice,
whichever occurs first.. Under subsection
120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agency ac-
tion may file a petition within 21 days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number
of the petitioner; the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-'
tioner's substantial interests are or will be af-
fected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petition-
er received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi-
fication of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
that the petitioner contends require reversal or
rhodification of the agency's proposed action;
and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wishes the agency to take with re-
spect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the materi-
al facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under paragraphs
120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for ad-
ministrative hearing must be dismissed by the
agency if the petition does not substantially
comply with the above requirements or is un-
timely filed.

blow away



Santa Fe


Strange scores 14 points in
second quarter to lead rout
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor , -
... AUBURNDALE- -.- Even a basketballnovice
could have predicted the outcome of Wednesday's
game between Avon Park and Lakeland Santa Fe in
the Tracy McGrady 'Shootout at Auburndale High
School.
During pregame warm-ups, it was apparent the
Crimson Hawks were going to be no match for the
Devils athletically, and those appearances proved to
be true as Avon Park opened up a quick
Avon Park 10-1 lead and cruised to a 65-31
blowout.
Avon Park coach Eric Zwayei said
Santa Fe before the game that he would like to
3 1 see no turnovers by his team. While
that didn't happen, the Devils (9-2) did
limit themselves to 12 giveaways, not a
bad number considering Zwayer was emptying his
bench starting late in the first half.
"We had freshmen coming in and trying to play
fresh off the JV," Zwayer said. "I realize we're going
to make mistakes: I thought we did a good job over-
all of hustling and playing defense and guarding and
doing the small things we need to do."
Avon Park harassed the Crimson Hawks (3-6) into
24 turnovers and had 17 steals to take control of the
game.
Justin Cole's free throw in the opening minute
gave Santa Fe its only lead at 1-0 before the Devils
reeled off 10 straight points, four each from Taiwan
Perry and Patrick Menzies.

Blue Streaks knock off East Lake

Get second win of season in second round of Outback Steakhouse Invitational


By JUSTIN DARGAHI
News-Sun Correspondent
TAMPA - Sebring didn't want to
lose another close game so the Blue
Streaks decided to seize control right
away.
The Streaks jumped on East Lake
from the opening tip and never let up en
route to earning their second win of the
season, 70-57, Wednesday in a second-
round game of the Outback Steakhouse
Invitational.
Sebring jumped out to an early 18-8
lead after just six minutes and extended
the lead to 36-17 with two minutes.
remaining in the first half.
Center Luke Birge scored early and
often and paced Sebring with 10 first-
half points.
The Blue Streaks (2-8) used an effec-
tive 2-3 defense to confuse the Eagles on


the offensive end and held them to 21
first-half points.
It was the first time this season that
Sebring showed a zone defense.
"I thought tonight would be a good
time to finally show the zone," head
coach Princeton Harris said. "We will
use it a lot more in the second half of the
year and we still need to correct a lot of
things."
Birge finished with 16 points to lead
the Blue Streaks after scoring just two
points the night before. Blake Sanders
added 13 points, including some key
fourth-quarter free throws, and junior
Kyle Hoffner added 12 points on just 10
shots.
"We wanted to play an up-tempo style
and get good shot selection," Harris said.
"I think we achieved that in scoring 70
points."


East Lake was led by freshman
Kendal O'Neill, who had 15 points and
sophomore Matt Moore, who added 13
points, all in the second half.
Berkley Prep 54
Sebring 50
Berkeley Prep senior Jake Bernstein
made only one shot against Sebring
Tuesday night, but he made it count.
The Blue Streaks led the Buccaneers
for the first 31 minutes, but couldn't
hang on in the final minute and fell to the
Bucs 54-50 on Bernstein's late 3-pointer
in the opening round of the Outback
Steakhouse Invitational.
Sebring opened the second quarter
with an 11-2 run to build a 14-point lead.
The Bucs battled back to within six at

Rising Angels laying foundation for

AAU baseball program in Avon Park


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK

of summer anymore.
In baseball - and just
about any other sport -
it takes a year-round program just
to keep up with the competition.
The days of playing sports only
when they are traditionally "in
season" has gone the way of
leather helmets and wooden driv-
ers.
With that in mind, some folks
up in Avon Park - most notable
among them two-time Major
League all-star Tom "Flash"
Gordon - are working to estab-
lish an Amateur Athletic Union
league in an effort to get Avon
Park baseball back to the level of
domination it once enjoyed while
winning eight high school state
championships from 1948-87.
The push has already begun
with the formation of the Rising
Angels team, a group of 11-and-
under players coached by Donald
Gordon (Tom's younger brother)
and Tyrone Perry. The Angels are
in their second year of play and
took third at a seven-team tourna-
ment they hosted this past week-
end at Durrah Martin Complex.
Donald Gordon said the
improvement his team has shown
over the past two years is unbe-
lievable
"We've got about three 11-year-
olds and the rest are 9- and 10-
year-olds and we're playing in an
11-year-old league. The kids have
definitely gotten a lot better. Last
year, we were getting beat like 14-
2, 15-2. Third inning, the game's
over. Now we're competing and
finally brought home a trophy.


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Elmer Hernandez of the Tampa Sharks reaches for the plate after being
tagged out by Avon Park first baseman Billy Rogers following a rundown
during Sunday's tournament game.


Last year, we didn't bring home
anything."
The Angels have been invited
to play in the national AAU tour-
nament in North Carolina in April.
Donald Gordon knows his team is
far from ready to contend for a
national title, but he knows it
would be a good experience for
the players.
Participating in AAU tourna-
ments has given a glimpse of how
far Avon Park has to go to catch
up to other parts of the state,
Donald Gordon said.
"We get to Orlando where all
these teams are competing and we
should be on that level with them,
but we don't even have a chance.
That's why we need to get better.
Our kids are going to have to play
against those kids in college or
wherever they go.
"If they don't get up to par,


they'll always be a step behind."
Nobody is saying they want to
do away with the traditional Dixie
Youth Baseball league that
Highlands County players take
part in during the spring and sum-
mer. They just want to give the
kids a chance to do something
more.
While Dixie tourneys mainly
feature teams from small towns,
the competition in AAU is wider-
ranging and is a definite step up
from Dixie. The tournament this
past weekend featured teams from
Tampa, Lakeland, Cape Coral,
Auburndale, Lake Wales and
Haines City, all towns bigger than
Avon Park.
And it's not just the size of the
towns. It's the level of play that
sets AAU apart.

DEVILS
Continued from IE
Devaris Strange, who was
benched at the start of the game
for being late to practice, made
up for lost time when he got
onto the floor, pouring in 14 of
his game-high 17 points in the
second quarter as the 'Devils
padded their lead to 42-15.
"We've just got to take care
of those things off the floor,
then we can definitely take care


of them on the floor," Zwayer
said.
Bo Comadore's 3-pointer
with 5:45 left in the third quar-
ter put the Devils up by 35
points and invoked the running
clock mercy rule for the rest of
the game.
Avon Park lead 58-19 at the
end of the third quarter.
Menzies finished with 15
points for Avon Park.

NFL Picks

Redskins try to keep


push for playoffs going


By DAVE GOLDBERG
Associated Press
The Washington Redskins
are officially back from the
dead.
After four losses in five
games and six in eight, they've
won three in a row and can
make the playoffs simply by
winning their last two. Or even
just by beating the New York
Giants on Sunday if some other
things break for them.
This won't be as easy as their
35-7 win over Dallas last
Sunday. After all, the Giants
won the first meeting 36-0 and
have their own ambitions, such
as clinching the NFC East with
one more win.
As usual, Joe Gibbs is show-
ing class in victory, just as he
does in defeat.
As he was walking off the
field last Sunday, he tried to
signal stadium officials to stop
playing "Mama, Don't Let Your
Babies Grow Up To Be
Cowboys" on the public
address system. Owner Dan
"The Fan" Snyder loves to
gloat when things go right.
"I just think that we always
want to win the right way, and
when you lose, you want to lose
the right way," Gibbs said. "I
think we always want to be the
kind of team that does that."
Despite the pounding the
Redskins took at the
Meadowlands, they are 3-point
favorites this week - home
field advantage. That's reason-
able, although the Giants also
have won three straight.
That blowout in the first
game resulted from a combina-
tion of circumstances: emotion
after the death of Giants owner
Wellington Mara, early
Redskins turnovers and some
curious defensive alignments
that helped Tiki Barber rush for
206 yards.
Barber, of course, went for
220 against Kansas City last
week and has a career-h igh
1,577 yards rushing with two
games left.
But the Giants have injuries
now, the Redskins have
momentum and home field.
REDSKINS, 24-20
The rest of the picks:
San Diego (plus 1)
at Kansas City
Two teams in desperation
mode. Despite their win in Indy
last week, the. Chargers need
help to get in. They have to help
themselves first.
CHARGERS, 31-21
Atlanta (plus 3)
at Tampa Bay
Two teams that froze last
week in northern climes battle
for survival in the NFC South.
BUCS, 17-16
Dallas (plus 5%')
at Carolina
The Cowboys' playoff hopes
are almost gone. The Panthers


are almost in.
PANTHERS, 22-14
Oakland (plus 13)
at Denver
The Broncos clinch the AFC
West against Mike Shanahan's
least-favorite team.
BRONCOS, 31-13
Indianapolis (plus 8)
at Seattle
The Colts? Underdogs by
eight? Think Jim Sorgi.
SEAHAWKS, 24-6
Pittsburgh (minus 6/2)
at Cleveland
The Steelers, clinging to the
sixth AFC playoff spot, have to
be careful.
STEELERS, 16-13
Jacksonville (minus 6)
at Houston
The way the Jags played
against the 49ers last week,
anything can happen against a
team that's trying to blow the
Reggie Bush pick.
JAGUARS 16-13
Buffalo (plus 13'/2)
at Cincinnati
The Bills are 0-6 on the road.
That sounds like the old
Bungles.
BENGALS, 33-10
Chicago (minus 6)
at Green Bay (Sunday) .
Not much left in the poor
Pack.
BEARS, 24-2
Minnesota (minus 1/2)
at Baltimore (Sunday)
Two long-term Vikings
trends: they fade late and
they're bad outdoors.
RAVENS, 17-13
New England (minus 5)
at N.Y. Jets (Monday)
Pats will be careful about
injuries.
A going-away game for
Doug Flutie?
PATRIOTS 20-19
Tennessee (plus 5Sa)
at Miami
Four straight wins and Saban
has the Dolphins on track for a
winning season.
DOLPHINS 20-10
Philadelphia (plus 1)
at Arizona
Go with the stronger fran-
chise. Besides, there are more
Eagles ,fans in Arizona than
Cardinals fans.
EAGLES, 20-17
Detroit (plus 3) vs.
New Orleans
Maybe the Lions will be
helped away from home.
Not this year.
SAINTS, 24-19
San Francisco (plus 9)
at St. Louis
The 49ers almost beat the
Jags, so don't accuse them of
tanking it for the Reggie Bush
pick.
RAMS 20-7

LAST WEEK: 8-8 (spread) 13-3
(straight up). SEASON 104-116-
4 (spread) 155-69 (straight up)

HARRISONBURG, Va. -
Former Florida State basketball
star Norwood "Pee Wee"
Barber Jr. has been sentenced to
life in federal prison for con-
spiracy to distribute drugs.
Wednesday's sentencing was
for Barber's third conviction on
drug-dealing charges - which
triggered a mandatory life sen-
tence.
Barber nodded in acknowl-
edgment as U.S. District Judge
Samuel Wilson reviewed his
convictions in 1990 and 1993 in
Rockingham County Circuit
Court.
"I don't know what to say


STREAKS
Continued from 1E
halftime thanks to several Blue
Streak turnovers and 11 first-
half points by freshman guard
Austin Suarez, most on open
looks.
"We didn't play enough help
defense," Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris said. "We did-
n't drop down enough when we
were playing zone defense and
gave up some easy points."
Junior Kyle Hoffner led three
Blue Streaks in double figures
with 15 points. Senior guards
Blake Sanders and A.C. Wilson
added 14 points and 12 points,
respectively.


when a person is facing a
mandatory life sentence,"
Wilson said. "It's heartbreak-
ing."
Barber, 41, was convicted in
July of conspiracy to distribute
50 grams or more of ciack
cocaine. The case stemmed
from activities from October
2002 to December 2004, and he
was arrested as part of a federal
investigation.
A junior college transfer,
Barber led Florida State in scor-
ing in the 1985-86 and 1986-87
seasons with the Seminoles.
In two seasons at Florida
State, the 5-foot-ll Barber
averaged 18 points a game.


Suarez led the Bucs with 17
points, including four 3-point-
ersn. Senior center Pat
McLaughlin added 15 points,
including three consecutive
baskets in the paint down the
stretch.
But none were bigger than
Bernstein's deep 3-pointer,
which handed the Blue Streaks
their fourth straight loss in the
final minutes.
Harris knows his team is
improving, however.
"Losing so many close
games is very tough but I can
see we keep getting better and
better," Harris said. "Getting
better is obviously a good
sign."


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Avon Park Rising Angels coach Tyrone Perry talks strategy with Jarviel Hart (21) and Josh Gomez dur-
ing Sunday's game against the Tampa Sharks.


ANGELS
Continued from 1E
players don't take leads off a
base and have to learn pickoff
throws until they reach the
Boys league at age 13. In
AAU, that skill is learned at
the 11-year-old level, helping
players progress that much
faster up the baseball learning
curve.
"It's definitely going to
serve them well, because
they'll already know how to
lead off and how to get signals
from the coach on third base,"
Donald Gordon said. "It's
going to advance them a lot
faster. I don't see how it could
not help them."
The chatter is even different
in AAU. At the tournament on
Sunday, instead of "Hey batter,
batter," the favorite saying of
Angels' defense was "Hit it to
me," something Donald
Gordon said they picked up at
a previous tournament.
While Tom Gordon says the
Angels are a good start, he
wants more.
"There's so much tradition
and so many good coaches and
good people in this town that
have worked hard to make
Avon Park baseball so good,"
he said. "Right now, we're at a
stand-still. The kids are not
really getting all of the coach-
ing they need as well as all of
the attention to playing as they
deserve because people don't
have a lot of time.
"The idea of getting this
AAU thing going in Avon Park
is to give the kids a lot more
opportunity to play. We're hop-
ing that maybe we can get
about four or five teams. Right
now we only have one, but
next year we're going to have
two."
Sebring has been fielding a
few AAU teams for the past
couple of years, and Tom
Gordon would like to see Avon
Park, Sebring and several of
the other surrounding commu-
nities get more involved in the
AAU process, fielding more
teams and giving more kids a
chance to play.
Nobody knows better than
Tom Gordon what it takes to
be successful in baseball. He's
getting ready to open his 18th
season in the majors, having
recently signed a free-agent
deal with the Philadelphia
Phillies. It takes a lifetime of

dedication to reach that level
of baseball. And the earlier that
lifetime of dedication starts,
the better a player's chances of
being a success at the high
school, college and pro levels.
"Right now, we've got to
play year-round," Tom Gordon
said. "We've got to find some
way. If Dixie was able to play
year-round and they were hav-


ing tournaments all over the
country like AAU, it would be
different.
"My kid up in Orlando
played 105 AAU baseball
games last year. They (AAU)
have so many teams and so
many opportunities to play."
Tom Gordon is willing to
put his money where his mouth
is, too, saying that if anybody
wants to form a team for the
Avon Park AAU league, he
will get them a sponsorship,
even if he ends up having to
write the check himself.
He's willing to do whatever
it takes, he said, to get back to
the days when the words
"Avon Park" and "baseball" in
the same sentence made people
turn their heads.
"We have to give the kids an
opportunity to play," he said,
"because right now we're

Dungy's son


found dead


in apartment

By TRAVIS REED
Associated Press
LUTZ - James Dungy, the
18-year-old son of Indianapolis
Colts coach Tony Dungy, was
found dead in a Tampa-area
apartment Thursday.
No foul play is suspected,
but a cause of death won't be
announced pending an autopsy,
sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie
Carter said.
James Dungy's girlfriend
found him when she returned to
the Campus Lodge Apartments
at about 1:30 a.m., Carter said.
He wasn't breathing, and a
sheriff's deputy performed
CPR before an ambulance
rushed him to. University
Community Hospital. He was
pronounced dead there.
Carter said "nothing evi-
dent" was amiss in the apart-
ment, but declined to discuss
details.
Tony Dungy has left the
Colts and is in Tampa, where he
used to coach the Buccaneers.
The Colts (13-1) are at Seattle
on Saturday, and team presi-
dent Bill Polian said that assis-
tant head coach Jim Caldwell
has taken over for Dungy.
Indianapolis lost its first
game Sunday against the visit-
ing San Diego Chargers, end-
ing what had been a perfect
season.
"The thoughts and prayers of
everyone in this building are
with Tony and (wife) Lauren,
their children and their extend-
ed family, and for the repose of
James' soul," Polian said at a
news conference at the Colts'
training facility in Indianapolis.
"This is a tragedy for the
Dungy family and by extension
his football family here with
the Colts."
� Owner Jim Irsay and Polian
met with team officials and
players to break the news.
"It was not easy, and it was
somber, to say the least,"
Polian said.
