SEBRING Like, a new light bulb,
those resolving to get in shape in the
new year "bum bright then burn out."
If your New Year's. resolution is to
amass muscle, tone the tummy, or de-
flab the fanny, personal trainers from
various health clubs in Sebring recom-
mend easing into an exercise program.
"I want a nice steady glow," said Lyle
Wilson, co-owner of Quest Training
Center and Spa, expounding on his light
bulb analogy.
Fitness centers cater to the different
needs of the community a cursory
glance in the phone book showed that
some gyms offered classes for kids or
tanning booths while others had no initi-
ation or start-up fees.
"After the first of the year, we'll get a
lot of people coming in who received
gift certificates for the holidays," said
Highland's Health and Racquet's Robert
Gilbert, who's been in business for 21
years. "Across the board the general
dropout rate is seven or eight out of 10
people."
Gilbert said he tells his beginners to
ease into their workout, offering to write
a program that'll get them started.
Cherie Starr, manager of the Florida
Hospital Fitness Centers, agreed, noting
that "Everybody wants it yesterday."
"Exercise is one of the best things you
can do for yourself mentally," Gilbert

The secret's out: Central Florida "Copyrighted Material

BBQ Festival coming this weekend Available from Commercial News Providers"


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun .
SEBRING At their top secret testing facili-,
ty in an undisclosed location on Persimmon
Avenue across the street from the batting cages at
Firemen's Field, Jack Pollard applied the closely-
guarded blend of garlic salt and seasoned pepper
to several slabs of ribs, a pork butt, and a few
pounds of chicken thighs during a practice cook
Saturday at Martin Mackay's barn.
"If you print that, we'll have to kill you,"
Pollard said of his spices, jokingly.
Hopefully.
Pollard, a member of McGruff's Bar & Grill, is
one of several cookers who'll represent the team
at the Central Florida BBQ Festival on Friday
and Saturday at Firemen's Field. Some teams will
start setting up as early as Wednesday. The event
will open to the public at 11 a.m. Friday with the
flea market starting at 8 a.m.
"We win a trophy every once in a while,"
Pollard said while trimming skirts and mem-
branes from the ribs. "But we like to have a good


time more than anything" .
Around 50 teams are expected to compete for
a total purse of $8,500, said Artie McIntyre with
Sebring Firemen Inc.
"There's people out there, they'll use exotic
rubs," Pollard said, explaining thIdI sormec' of the
teams take their cooking seriously. "They have
secret recipes."
Cooking for judges is different than cooking
for family, friends, and fund-raisers, said Jack
Bennett, of Sebring, who's known for his swamp
cabbage.
Bennett said he's participated in barbecues
where they've cooked for thousands of people
but this year is the first time he will cook meat to
be'judged in addition to his black-eyed peas and
swamp cabbage side dishes.
"What do you use to light your charcoal?"
Pollard asked Bennett.
Bennett said he used starter fluid.
"Don't use it anymore," Pollard said. "Believe

Immigration law should not affect local growers


Agriculturists

want labor to

earn legal status
ByPHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A
Congressional bill to crack-
down on illegal immigration
should not, hopefully, have any
effect on Highlands County cit-
} rus' growers.
The Border Protection,
Antiterrorism, and Illegal
Immigration Control Act of
2005 (H.R. 4437) is intended to
tighten up border .control s'o
federal officials know who. is
and who isn't in' the country
legally.


On the surface, it should help
reduce possible terrorist threats.
Employers of laborers, howev-
er, could carry the: burden, of
ensuring their workers are legal,
documented immigrants.
If not, employers could face
fines as high as $50,000 and a
year in prison. Simple viola-
tions in paperwork could carry
a $25,000 fine.
Ray Royce, executive direc-
tor of the Highlands County
Citrus ,Growers Association
Inc., said local growers use only
documented -workers.
"E'erwone I know of 'has
been \erN conscious of using
only documented workers,"
RoPce said. "I would not think
this has a far reaching impact
here." :


Currently, it's illegal for an
employer to questions any docu-
mentation that appears valid,
something that Casey Pace,
director of public affairs at the
Florida Citrus .Mutual in:
Lakeland, found interesting.
When harvesting companies
hire a worker, the worker pro-
vides paperwork.
"You can't question if it's
legal or not," Pace said. "It does
happen, even though growers to
their best to hire only legal
workersi.
The antiterrorism law would
direct the Secretary of
Homeland Secunrt to establish
an employment elieibilitN veri-
fication system. Employers
would be required to take part
in the pilot program after two


years.
bWithin
mltrthree years,
1 -4 employers
would have
to verify
employees
at federal,
state c or
ROYCE local gov-
ernment
buildings,
military bases, nuclear energy
sites, weapons sites, airports, or
critical infrastructure sites.
SWithin six years. employers
would have to hax e verified all
employees, incltling....those
who have worked for the com-
pany a long time.
Pace said Florida's citrus,
growers have been trying to get


more favorable legislation
passed.
The Agriculttral Job
Opportunities, Benefits and
Security Act, or "AgJOBS" (S.
359, H.R. 884), supported by
the U.S. Farm Workers, would
provide a chance for experi-
enced, trusted workers with a
significant history working in
American agriculture to stay
and earn legal status.
In the long term, the act
would support increased border
patrol and reform .for the legal
guest worker program to make
,it more streamlined, practical,
and secure. ,. -
"We see. it as a 'win-win-'
win,' Pace said. "'We feel this
would improve the overall situ-
ation. The proposed legislation,


as-is, is enforcement only."
The: United States needs new
means of controlling illegal
immigration because people
will keep coming in the country,
Pace. said.: Meanwhile, Florida
agriculture needs a steady
workforce.
The number of pickers' can
,make a buyer's or seller's mar-
ket, according to Royce,
Pickers will move into a less
intensive job if they can.
He' has a great appreciation
for how industrious, pickers can
be and has remarked in the'past
on how important they are to
the local and national economy,
especially) %ith perishable com-
modities such as fruit and veg-
etables

It's an ordinance' that the
county has been working on for

2005. the county began looking
at ways to keep code violations
but of the court system.
The biggest change is.
tougher fines. Landowners w ill
still get a warning, but if the
problem persists, depending on
the level of the violation. fines,
may be $50. $100, $200. or
$500.
The end result should pro-

The .new process would
require repeat offenders to cor-

The first citation gives three
days to fix the problem. The
second citation requires the vio-

and imposes a higher fine.
Each da\ a violation cbntin-,
"ues could be treated as a new
Siolauon, with a maximum fine
of $500 each time. plus reason-
able costs for investigation.
prosecution and an administra-,
tire hearing. If they don't fix
the problem. the county can still
impose a lien on the property or
the person to get it fixed.',
If a violator fixes the prob-
lem, but doesn't pay the fine.
that's still an admission of guilt,
'according to attorney Ross
'Macbeth:. '
If the fines don't work, such
as w% ith an out-of-town property
owx ner, then the county can con-
tract to have the problem fixed
and put a lien on the property.
A fine won't exceed $375,
butu only if a person pays the
fine and doesn't contest the \ io--
lation.

Will two-lane corridors handle Lake Placid?


By'PHIL ATTINGER

SEBRING Lake Placid
and county officials expect a'
major growth spurt to the west
and south% est of the town.
t's prime grove land, on
:jakes anI--;thin' 'reach of the
city's water''nd seer systems.
j The only thing is the area
doesn't ha'e enough roads yet
for major development. It's an
issue, the Lake Placid Growth
Management Committee. joint-
ly-appointed by the town coun-,
cil and county commission, will
try-to wrangle.
In the last six months, the
committee has gathered input
from local ,developers,
landowners and residents on
how the\ w\\ant td see Lake
Placid grow.
Ray Royce, committee mem-
ber, said most people want to
keep the "'small-town, cozy and
friendly feel" they already
have. That means- tree-lined.
two-lane rural collector roads'
\\ith turn lanes when needed
30 mph ,speed limits, low-
density developments, side'-
walks and multi-use paths. but
no four-lane thoroughfares.
"Reality is clashing %\ith the
vision." County Commission
Chairman Bob Bullard said.
As liaison to the committee
and a Lake Placid resident
Bullard said the town can't
keep a purely rural vision, ha'e
the number of dwellings pro-
posed for some developments,
and handle that much traffic.
When those lands develop.


even at medium denseit, two-,
lane roadways won't handle-it,
Bullard said.
'He suggests developments
have lower density and more
green space. Some roads could
be larger to take traffic off resi-
dential'rural roads.
He also suggests "internal
capture" placing commercial
development,'schools and parks
near homes so residents don't
have to drive to U.S. 27 for gro-
,ceries, gasoline, retail shop-
ping, postal services, recreation
or entertainment.
County commissioners man-
aged on Tuesday to secure some
right of way for a major collec-
tor road on the south edge of the
Lost Lake Groves property.
The Durrance family, is will-
ing to dedicate some right of
way to improve Lake Mirror
Drive if other landowners who
stand to benefit from the road
will give a share.
Bullard said all landowners
in that area need to dedicate
some land west of the town for
roads, schools, fire and medical
stations and stores if they want


to keep a rural vision.
Some corridors have been
identified for roads. Royce said
Roy Pendarvis Road. now
called Heartland Boulevard,
%will eventually reach from the
highway all the way to Main
Street and possibly LakeJunihe.
West Interlake boulevard
could see, improvement arid
extension, as. could Lost Lakes
Grove Road, Lake Mirror
Drive, Stewart Road and
NMarquata Drive.
"We're trying to get east and
west connective ity." Royce said.
Development is on ridge
\\ here lakes are and they are a
barrier to the normal grid,
Bullard said.
Roece said the area still
needs code restrictions so the
town %will keep its charm.
"This is all a work in
progress." Royce said. "No
hard and fast decisions have
been made." A
That's why it's so important
to plan ahead. Bullard said. so
the developments will work
well with the rest of the town.

There 'is more to healing than meets the eye


By RIC LIUENBERG
LAKE PLACID Of the
few things that haven't changed
much through the centuries, the,
attraction of people who have
the gift of healing remains a
recurring phenomenon.
In the Jewish and Christian
faiths, healing stories are as old
as the Bible.
Considering Jesus' healing
ministry as recorded in the first
four books of the New
Testament, biblical scholars
count more than 50 healings he
performed in just, more than
three years.
The Rev. Canon Mark
Pearson believes there is more
to healing than meets the eye
and on the weekend of Jan. 6-8,
Pearson will moderate a semi-
nar that will explore the breadth
and width of healing emo-
tional .and physical.
For many people, exposure
to televised healing services
sums their entire experience
with a topic that has kept scien-
tists and theologians scratching
their heads looking for reason-
able explanations for what seem
to be unexpected, supernatural
anomalies.
At the seminar, Pearson will
point .out that the TV screen
shows only a very small part of
the healing going on hour by
hour around the world.
As his visit to Highlands
County draws closer, he talked
about the history of modem
healing..
Healing, he said, happens all.


the time and takes as many
forms as there are individuals.
Many of these healings have
gone through scientific forensic
analysis. -
"There h
have been
numbers of
cles tudie
done magazines, and segments








that indicate that God respoAds

in medicines are tested; al

sometimes to prayers for heal-, the need
ing, using the same criteria by
whto inform medicines are tested; in
other words,,this is a scientific
study, not a faithstatemen. co-
He added the"God does heal
today, not onlN through medi-
cine and rgernew, but als in 1980,
miraculously,- through
prayer."
In his evoview, it follows that if
God continues tiheal, the need
to inform, peoplele about itaftis
compelling,
With healis wife,homes Dr Mary
Pearson, Mark Pearson com-
fourt added .he Institc te falling m
Christian Renewal in-1980()
which has evolved into the.New
Creation Healing Center in
Plaistow, N.H. Modeled after
the healing homes found in
England, the center serves com-
fort and .a holistic healing min-


istry to people with many dif-
ferent emotional and physical
conditions.
At the heart of this ministry
is a fundamental dependence on
God's active work in human
lives.
"A healing ministry makes a
statement about .God." Pearson
explained, "Sometimes people
having received a healing from
the Lord, then start asking ques-
tions about the Lord who just
healed them." ,
In something like Christian
philosopher Dr. Francis
Schaeffer 's book Death in the
City, Pearson also perceives a
kind : of spiritual disconnect
"with some powerful first prin-
ciple, some intelligent design
that got the universe going, but
is certainly no one I can know
and no one who knows me and
no one who cares about me."'
This is not the God Pearson
-nor Schaeffer found in
the Bible,. the God \%ho often
responds immediately\ to prayer.
And theN were both con-
v'inced though seeing and hear-
ing people who believe God
answered their prayers that' the
God of the Bible is for real.
"Maybe I can get to kno"\
him. and ma.be this healing
I've experienced is just the first
step of w hat could be an incred-
ible journey," is a common
client's statement Pearson para-
phrased.
To him, the coming seminar
is part of the function of the
church. "God wishes to use
numbers of Christian disciples


in this ministry."
St. Francis of Assisi
Episcopal Church rector, the
Rev. Elizabeth Myers, believes
the seminar will answer many
questions some people have

about the wide range of issues
associated with centuries of
debate about a huge subject.
"The whole point is to teach
people about healing," Myers
said. "Healing isn't something
that just happened 2,000 years
ago when Jesus .walked the
earth, but he's gone physically,
so now we're his hands with his
promise that we would do
greater things than he did; so
it's another way. of expressing
the gifts of the spirit, that is
sometimes misunderstood, that
is sometimes abused." -
.And some people have diffi-
culty \ ih ,what she called "the
gift of healing because of what
they've seen on television.'"
Pearson summed it up this
was. "I think man\ people who
behe\e in the healing ministry
toda. associate it to a few big-
name people. nationally-
know n. w\ ho mal come to tow n
for a big healing crusade and
that's wonderful but then
the\ leave."
He said. "The reahty is. God
w ishes that all of the churches
would have groups of people
praying on a weekly basis for
the sick." .

Attaining fitness goals requires fiscal fitness


By KEVIN J. SHUT
Ntws-Sui.
SEBRING G'm member-
ships -in Highlands County
range from $30-$40 per month.
John Manjarres. owner of
180-Degree Fitness, charges
$60 per session and he expects
clients to be there three times a
week for the better part of six
months.
"They say. I'm. the most
- expensive.," Manjarres said. "I:
pnde mi\self.onttiat."
Most of his customers come,
from other g\ ms frustrated the\
don't see the results they want.
"I came- from that-set,"
Manjarres said, explaining he
lost 70 pounds, but that it took
several years: and trial and error,
most error. "It's hard because
they don't know exactly what to
do. They're left there alone."
Manjarres said his, gym.spe-
cializes in one-on-one or cou-
ples training but it does conduct
some group sessions.
Along with the personal
attention, he said 90-percent of
a program focuses on nutrition.
"The reality is they go hand-
ini-hand," Menjarres said. "If
people realized that if they
focused on nutrition, they'd
learn that they don't have to


work out as hard." .
But. spending $180 per week
on exercise might not be for
everybody,
,"When they add how much
they're lost in a year (on wast-
ed gym memberships) and then
see results in three months
here," Menjarres said, "they
realize they're getting more. It's
a, big investment in them-
selves."
Menjarres -said he "pushes"
gyms regularly, after clients
reach their goals he'll recom-
mend Quest. the Florida
Hospital health centers. or the


YMCA to conunue their fitness.
"My goal is to help, clients
de\ elop a dependency on them-
selves," he said. "I wish I had
had this."
Never try to "cold turkey"
anything and worry about body
composition rather than %weight,
Manjarres said. explaining that
life-long fitness requires a grad-
ual lifestyle change.
Weight, he explained, can be
misleading as the sole determi-
nant in gauging exercise results
- one might lose fat and gain
muscle resulting in a net change
of zero pounds.

"They'll be frustrated,"
Manjarres said. "They did all
this .work and have 'nothing' to
show for it"
Motivation comes and goes
in waves, for everybody.
When that happens to a
client, Manjarres said he'll help
them refocus. ,
"I talk about their kids ,of
their grandkids," he said. "And
they're like, "Oh Neah. I
Remember why I'm doing this.'
It's easN to lose focus."


Demons blamed for

diseases throughout history

According to a wide variety of historic sources. from ancient
time to the present day. many civilizations and cultures looked
beyond the physical senses for ans.ers to questions of disease
and illness.
Almost universally. evil spirits someunies called
"demons" get the credit for making people sick.
Babylonian cuneiform writings more than 5,000 years old
blame disease on e\il spirits who Babylonians believed would
obey incantations and the intervention of the bene\ olent gods.
Known for their love of magic, ancient Eg2ptian- turned
this love into a form of healing art they practiced in their tem-
ples.
W Ancient Aryan peoples said pra% ers for the sick
Buddhists and Brahmins dealt vnith illness through their
magic spells.
In the temples of Apollo. Juno and Jupiter. ancient Greeks
sought help from their priests.
Using oracles and magic spells, the ancient Druids claimed
many cures.
i Ancient Hebre\ws thought demons wbo inhabited the air.
food and water were responsible for sickness Exorcism was a
common practice, along with the use of oil used for anointing
and massage.
From the advent of Jesus Christ. a thread of exorcism ,on-
tinues todaN.
While most historians seem to agree that ancient ci' ilizations
and cultures attributed disease and illness to supernatural caus-
es, the wider range of hopeful remedies belongs to ChnstianitN,
which also means as wide a range of healing practices. These
practices include direct spiritual inter ention through the prayer
of someone with the gift of healing, perhaps best known
through televised healing services. While exorcism is sill prac-
ticed within some quarters of Christendom. the Rev. Canon
Mark Pearson's approach is holistic the belief that the mind
and the body and the spirit are somehow interrelated.

Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been puablishing news
about Highhlaim Cc4nty since
1927. .As a ireat f'ir out read-
ers, we hati gone through our
archives and pidulled some sto-"
ries from previous issues 'that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Feb. 6, 1964.

The State Road Department
isn't receiving any cooperation
from the Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners in efforts to end
parking along U.S. 27 in front
of Walker Memorial Hospital.
A resolution, requested by
the state department, was pre-
sented at the Tuesday morning
session of the county board, but
the commissioners took .no
o te ,
.This was the th id request
from the state for such an
action. Cecil Skipper, commids-
sioner from the Avon Park area,
protested "As long as both units.
of the hospital are being used,
some parking along the front of
the old building is needed. It is
a good 20(0 \ .rds from the park-
ing lot to the old building "
When the state department.
in a letter dated JulJ\ 27. asked
for parking in fror t of the ho_-
pital to be eliminated, the com-i-
missioners said that action
would be delayed until the hos-
pital had completed work on its
new parking lot. -
A letter read to the commis-
sioners Tuesday stated that "'the
new parking lot is completed,


but the parking continues..."
Commissioner Carl McIntyre
observed that when cars park
too close together in front of the
hospital, some drivers have to
pull out into the highway to get
out of their parking space.
I Skipper pointed out that a-
special parking lane had been


built in front of the old Walker
Memorial building 'and he
added that the abrupt ending of
that lane creates more problems
than the parking along the high-
way.
Examination of bids for road
and bridge materials occupied
most of the board meeting time
Tuesday. A half dozen firms
submitted bids -for rock, but in
all other categorine bidders'
were few one to three for most,
items.

Avon Park won the bid for hot

has set 11 a.m., on March 11. as

Homeowners need to maintain septic tank


Septic system maintenance is
often compared to automobile
maintenance because only a lit-
de effort on a regular basis can
save a lot of money and signifi-
candJ prolong the life of the
s stem.
Annual i inspections of 'your
septic s\ stem are recommended
to ensure that it is working
properly and to determine when
the septic 'tank should be
puminped., Systems that have
moving parts may require more
frequefit inspections. By having
your system inspected and
pumped regularly., \ou can pre-
vent the high cost of septic s\ s-
tem failure.
A professional contractor can
do a thorough inspection of the
entire system and check for
cracked pipes and the condition
of the tees or baffles and other
parts of the system. A thorough
septic system inspection will
include the following steps,
'- 1. Locating the system. Even
a professional may have trouble
, locating the sy stem if the access
to your tank is buried. Once the
system components' are found
be sure to sketch a map and
keep it on hand to sale time on
future service visits.
2. Uncovenng the manhole
and inspection ports. This may
require some digging in the
yard. If the\ are buried, it will1
help future inspections if ele-
ated access covers or risers are
installed -to make it easier to
access the ports and manbole.
3. Checking connections.


Flushing the toilets, running
water in the sinks, running the
washing machine through a
cycle 'itll help to determine if
the household plumbing is iall
going to the system and work-
ing correctly .
4. Measuring the scum and
sludge layers. The inspector
\\ill measure the scum and
sludge layers %with special tools
inserted through the inspection
port. A proper inspection also
%\ill include a visuall observa-
tion of the scum and sludge lay-
ers. (The sludge layer is the'
heavier solids that ha'e settled
down to the bottom of the tank.,
The scum layer is made up of
grease and light solids that float
near the top of the tank.)
If the sludge depth is equal to
one-third or more of the liquid
depth, the tank should be
pumped. Also, the tank needs to
be pumped when it is one-third
,ul. 3t, beware it is mostpru-.
dent to conduct regular inspec-,
tions and pump when the
inspection, says the. tank needs
to be pumped. Remember that
toxic gases are produced by the
natural treatment processes in
septic tanks and can kill in rmn-
utes. Even looking into the tank
can be dangerous. Leave
inspections to the trained pro-
fessionals.
5. Checking the tank and the
drainfield. The inspector \%ill
check the condition of the baf-
fles or tees. the walls of the tank
for cracks, and the drainfield for
an\ signs of failure. If the svs-


tern includes a disiri-
bution bo\. drop
box. or pump. these
need to be checked
too.
AHow often the
tank needs to be
pumped depends on
the tank size. the
number of people
living in }our home,
and the habits of
your' particular
household. Garbage
disposals and high"
water use appli-
ances, 'such as a hot'
tub or whirlpool.

also affect the pumping fre-
quency. When it's time to
pump, be sure to hire a licensed
contractor. ,He or she will hate
the appropriate equipment and
will dispose of the sludge at an
appro\ ed treatment site. You
can find listings for licensed
pumpers and haulers in the .se-li
low pages, or contact your local


health department or
permitting agency for
assistance.,
It is a good idea to

tant thing that you can do to

en," Atiya said. "Those are
more characteristics of Farris
than adventurous. This is the
first adventure he's been on."
The teen traveled to Kuwait,
where a taxi dropped him in the
desert at the Iraq border, but he
could not cross there because of
tightened security ahead of the
Iraqi parliamentary elections on
Dec. 15. He went to Beirut,


Lebanon, to stay with family
friends, and flew from there to
Baghdad.
After his second night in
Baghdad, he contacted the AP
and said he had come to do
research and humanitarian
work. The AP called the U.S.
Embassy, which sent U.S. sol-
diers to pick him up.
State Department officials
then notified his parents.
Atiya said she has a 60-year-
old brother in Iraq, but that she
had refused when her son


recently pestered her for his
number. She said she offered to
take her son to Iraq later, when
tensions eased.
"I thought that would be suf-
ficient for him, but he took it
upon himself to do this adven-
ture. He has a lot of confidence,
but I never thought he would be
able to pull this together," she
said.
Hassan does not speak
Arabic and has no experience in
war zones, but he wanted to
find out what life was like there.

Atiya said her son is stu-
dious, works on the school
newspaper and is on the debate
team. He is a member of a
Republican Party club at school
who spends his time reading,
rather than socializing, his
mother said. .
When school officials
learned of Hassan's trip, they
threatened to expel him, but
Atiya and Hassan's father,
Redha Hassan, a physician, per-
suaded officials to allow him to
remain, Atiya said. It was not
immediately clear why they
wanted to expel him.
Julie Schiedegger, who
teaches English at Pine Crest,
said Friday that she learned
Hassan was headed to Iraq
about two weeks ago when she


overheard some students talk-
ing about it.
"He is very bright, friendly,
respectful, just a good kid," she
said.
Michael Buckwald, a 17-
year-old classmate, said Hassan
immerses himself in subjects
that he likes and was opinionat-
ed in class.
"He always struck me as a
very intellectual person. He's
very outspoken at the same
time," Buckwald said.
Hassan is the youngest of
Atiya's four children. The oth-
ers are enrolled at universities.
Aside from' the research he
wanted to accomplish, he also
wrote in an essay saying he
wanted to volunteer in Iraq.
He said he wrote half the


essay while in the United
States, half in Kuwait, and e-
mailed it to his teachers Dec. 15.
while in the Kuwait City air-
port.
"There is a struggle in Iraq
between good and evil, between
those striving for freedom and
liberty and those striving for
death and destruction," he
wrote.
Hassan told AP he under-
stood how dangerous his trip
was. He'd said that his plans on
his return to Florida were. to
"kiss the ground and hug every-
one."

Associated Press writers Denise
Kalette, Damian Grass and
Kelli Kennedy contributed to

said, counteringfthe excuses but,
conceding that an early reveille
isn't exactly pleasant. "'In my
opinion, people don't give
themselves a chance to like
exercise. The benefits are many
and there aren't many draw-'
backs."
To accommodate their
patrons, the clubs' hours based
on expressed needs there are
no 24-hour gyms here and
some (such as Busy Body
Fitness Center) close during
mid-day. Others close between
8-9 p.m. with varying weekend
hours and 180-Degree Fitness
is open by appointment only.
Like Gilbert, Wilson espous-
es "baby steps" in the journey
from couch potato to Adonis
and he recommends a lifestyle
change, not just a resolution
made over a glass of cham-
pagne at the office party.
Such a change entails an atti-
tudinal makeover that accom-.
panies exercise, Wilson
explained.
He said dietary changes sup-
plemefit gym time (calories
consumed versus calories
expended) and need not be
drastic.
"If you're eating a lot of
fried chicken and French fries,
make your first goal to elimi-
nate fried foods," Wilson said,
suggesting easily obtained
goals. "Next you can work on
smaller portions."
As for hitting the gym,
Wilson said worry first about
getting through the door, then
concentrate on increasing
intensity or duration.
"The No. 1 thing to do is
make showing up at the gym a
habit," he said. "It only has to
be for 30 to 40 minutes .. the
reason most people fail is that
they haven't made going to the


ness and texture.
-- "It's not like this when we cook for ourselves,"
Bennett said, as he watched Pollard trim the
S* meats. "We don't cut anything off."
It's different cooking for competition, where
" the judges look for a 1/4-inch smoke ring (the
depth that the smoking penetrates the meat) and
rial a how the meat pulls from the bone (they want
some pull without it being too tough) and other
details normally missed by a hungry layperson.
It "It's a hard job for those judges," Bennett said.
"How do you taste 40 meats and pick one out of
Providers" allthat?"
When it comes time to submit their entries -
deadlines 'are staggered through the morning
according to type of cut -'-Pollard said they'll
turn in eight to 10 ribs out of three slabs, select-
ing only the best looking.
_-_ There's a difference between grilling and bar-
S becuing, Bennett explained for the uninitiated.
Grilling is when you cook directly over the
S_ coals, three to six inches or so. Barbecuing, he
.. said, is done through indirect heat and often
entails smoking with wood from fruit-producing
trees.
"Everybody's into that long, drawn-out thing,"
Bennett said. "You cannot cook it fast."
If the weather holds, large crowds are expect-
ed to follow their noses to the fairgrounds, where
they'll be entertained by racing pigs, tractor
Parade, musical and vocal performances, and hog
calling contestants. Awards will be presented at 6

For many the gym itself is
intimidating..
"There's a common miscon-
ception that when they get to
the health club, everybody in
there is perfectly built,'" Gilbert
said. "Once people get here,
they see people of every shape
and size and age. They may
even look better than some

He said it's important to not
compare one's self with those.

everybody is there because they
want to improve.

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING Keller Williams Realty's
approach is built on personal touches, a profes-
sionalism and positive results. The franchise was
started in 1991 and is now in 48 states and three
provinces.
Chris McLaughlin is the majority owner of the
franchise which opened in Lakeland two years
ago and in Winter Haven one year ago. It is
already number one in market share. McLaughlin
feels the business is driven by local business
agents and therefore 30 percent of the franchise is
sold to local people, who were able to purchase 2
1/2 percent to 5 percent shares.
Decisions are made by agents who are in the
top 20 percent of the company. They make up the
Agent Leadership Council. By becoming a board
director, they make decisions for this local com-
pany, so that an agent-is ultimately running it.
So far Keller Williams Realty recruitment has
promises and commitments of 38 new agents,
and they're looking for more. They plan to be
number one in Highlands County by the end of,
2006. They believe in empowering agents with
decisions and paying the highest commission for
the lowest risk.
This company has a strong purpose, goals and
a plan for achieving them. The belief is that by.
attracting associates who want to build a career
and business also will build the overall company
franchise. Associates are rewarded by sharing in
company assets which is, a monthly profit sharing
out of the owner's profit. Keller Williams Realty
also, is opening a title company and. selling 40
percent .of that stock to agents. In this way an
associate can earn four checks in a month (the
owner profit share, profit from the title company,
commissions, and part of the profit-share pool of
the owners who wish to grow the business.)
The company's mission is to, build careers
worth having, businesses worth owning, and
lives worth living. Its values, in order of impor-
tance is God, 'family, then business.
Keller Williams Realty does everything full
service. Team leader Christi Burrows believes
their agents are the best trained and holds 15
classes per week. The training is state-of-the-art
with a 60-inch plasma screen, a drop-down pro-

M~TT-5'


jector and screen, DVD, surround sound, and an
interior designer decorated office space.
"We have award-winning technology and even
provide Web sites to save an agent money. This
company is established and growing with $56
million worth of business paid out in 2005 as
profit sharing. We have 60,000 agents nationwide
and it is projected that 5000 of those will be mil-
lionaires," Burrows said. ,
The company is not only hiring existing top
producers, but also ,have hired seven new agents
that just completed their bachelor of arts degrees.
The owners believe in covering all aspects and
growing. The company's profit sharing program
sets it apart and encourages teamwork. The staff
believe that they will all achieve more by work-
ing together. And their mentor program will
encourage new agents to succeed.
"I'm thrilled pink to be a part of this. I've been
a Realtor since the '80s. I've been involved in
selling, appraising, and management and was
delighted to be approached by Keller Williams.
I'll be 50 this year, with two grandkids who have
stolen my heart. I love the real estate business.
It's a people business. If you like people, it shows
and that's what will make you suiicces.ul,"
Burrows said.
Burrows. also wants to teach Realtors to invest
in their own future so they'll be able to retire. The
foundeirGary Keller wrote both "The Millionaire
Real Estate Agent" and "The Millionaire Real
Estate Agent-Investor," and is a firm believer in
helping agents be personally 'successful.
"We don't charge agents when they buy invest-
ments for themselves. We believe in investing in
yourself to create a future for yourself and your
family. We care about agents and. let them decide
how things will be done here. For instance, our
hours, staff for weekends, even the number of
employees is all determined by the agents. It is
expensive to recruit and train, so we want to keep
everyone happy at work."
Keller Williams Realty of Highlands County is

from' 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through

HEALTH
Continued from 11A:
that have fewer than 100
employees. Small business
simply cannot afford the high
cost of health insurance.
SIt isn't as if the American
small-business sector has been
reluctant to warn lawmakers
that this emergency\ is on its
way. For )ears, these entrepre-
neurs have named health insur-
*ance costs as their single most
important problem. From 2000
- 2004,. these costs have risen
15 percent to 20 percent annu-
ally. The share of small busi-
nesses with three-to-nine
employees that offer health
plans has fallen about 10 per-'
centage points in just a few
years.
On eight occasions, the U.S.
House of Representatives has
passed legislation designed to
allow the creation of Small-
Business Health Plans, also
known as association health
plans, to allow small enterpris-
es to band together across state


Walgreens,
CVS Pharm
- Phar-Mor
Wal-Mart
Eckerd Dru
Publix
Winn-Dixie


lines to purchase health cover-
age through trade associations.
Such plans could save the typi-
cal owner of a small firm
between 15 and 30 percent of
their medical insurance costs
and give them the same acces-
sibility, affordability and
choice that labor unions and
large businesses have.
Unfortunately, similar legis-
lation has failed to pass in the
U.S. Senate. Currently two
bilis have been introduced that
will allow the creation of
Small-Business Health Plans;
S. 406, The Small-Business
Health Fairness Act, crafted by
Senators Olympia Snowe
(Maine) and James Talent
(Mo.) and S. 1955, The Health
Insurance Marketplace
Modernization and
Affordability Act of 2005,
which was' recently introduced
by Senator Michael B. Enzi
(Wyo.), chairman of the
Health, Education, Labor and
Pensions Committee.
Both bills have given the
issue of Small-Business Health
Plans some much needed


momentum in the Senate, but
neither bill currently seems to
be on a fast track to the Senate
floor for a vote.
Momentum toward the goal
is always encouraging, but for
the millions of Americans
without health insurance,
momentum is still just talk.
This year, urgent action is
needed to ensure that millions
of small-business owners, their
families and employees enjoy'
future holidays without the
worry that comes from having
no health coverage.

Jdck Faris is the president of
the National Federation of
Independent Business, the
nation's largest small-business
advocacy group. A no.i-pI. ir .
non-partisan organization
founded in 1943, NFIB repre-
sents the consensus views of its
600,000 members in
Washington,i D.C., anddall 50

Finally, it was completed
gnd looked like t11 had always
been there. A beautiful house
now stood where once had
been an empty\ lot. When the
family moted in, the heart,
twas there. Now it t\as a
home.
t But, it lacked a few items,
that would give a graceful
and welcomJng appearance.
The landscaping. The mirdss-
ing greener,. colorful
blooms and gentle\ swa ing
trees could almost be felt -
conspicuous by their
,absence.
Then one da\. the land-
scapers brought in these
beautiful, live accessories.'
The heart and life of the
family. pulsing inside was
joined by the living things
now dancing in the breeze.
The flowers smiled a cheery
welcome.
Over thelast four weeks,
we examined some heart
v\arming Christmas gifts -
mereN. kindness, love and
forgiveness. Like the orna-
ments that turned our
Christmas trees into
sparkling wonders, these
gifts will decorate our lives
and those we touch.
Once we come into rela-

he promises to ne'er leave
us or forsake us. We are eteir-

Ho\wexer. we've now gone'
from being a "house" to a
"home'" w here the hearts
beating to a redeemed beat
and the Holy Spirit abides.
But. like the unlandscaped

'.Other accessories resem-
ble the sturdy trees and
bushes that not onlh add
grace and beauty, but a
measure of protection and
strength that surrounds the
person of faith.
"Make every effort to add

Distinctive early residences



constructed in Sebring


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
.SEBRING A sense of
scale gives Sebring its unique
character. It is proudly( "small
town.
The people % ho planned and
built Sebring during the boom
that began in 1012 preferred
modest homes to the massive
mansions and ornate atrocities
that bear the names of settlers in
mans cities.
The Bungalow %\as the most
popular residential building
design in Flonda during the
first part of the 20th century,
according to Stephen Olausen,
author and historic preser ation
expert. The BungjlowI is tpi-
call\ a one-storN house w ith a
low -pitched roof. Many had
second story extensions or
dormers to expand living space.
Houses designed in the
"Airplane" variation of the
'Bungalow style ,%ere among the


The Hainz House at 155 West Center St. is the most elaborate sur-
viting of an Airplane Bungalow in Sebring. The house %was built in
about 1917 by Edward L. Hainz. one of Sebring's pioneer business-
men. The Hainz home now houses the offices of the Republican
Party of Highlands County. The entrance features the pagoda-st.le
roof lines influenced by Japanese architecture, and the massive bat-
tered brick piers which support the front porch roof.


most distinctive residences con-
structed in Sebring during the
earl) 1920s.
"The Airplane Bungalow is
so called for a second story
extension that was originally
designed to afford panoramic


views and take advantage of
prevailing breezes," Olausen
writes in "Sebring: City on the
Circle." He further wrote, "The
grandest example of the style in
Sebring was the George
Sebring House, which stood
where the community library
and theater complex is today at
the foot of Center Avenue."
Looking at the front facade
of an Airplane Bungalow%. one

The Ingle house. 641 SE Lakeview Drive, Sebring, is a fine example of the Airplane Bungalow style of
architecture. It was built in 1922 by James W\. Ingle after he moved his family from Athens, Ga. to
become a citrus grower. Members of the Ingle family resided in the house until the death of Robert Ingle
in January 2005.


Photos by PATRICIA C. POND/News-Sun
Jack Ingle stands next to a giant mango tree in the front yard of the
family house on Lakeview Drive in Sebring. 'I planted this tree from
a mango pit in 1937,' Ingle said. 'It has been through hurricanes and
several killing freezes, but has always come back. It had a crop on it
this past summer.'


floor. The upper half-story sits
like a "cockpit" above the roof
"wings" of the horizontal lower
story. The nickname reflects
America's fascination with air'
travel at the beginning of the
20thcentury.
Although George Sebring's
original honie was demolished.
se eral examples of the
Airplane Bungalow can still be
found in the citN today .
The Ingle house is at 641 SE
Lake\ iew\ Drie on Lake
Jackson, one block north of the
Kenilworth Lodge. James W.
Ingle began construction on the
home in 1922, the year after he
moved his family from Athens,
Ga. to become a citrus grower,
in the new town of Sebring. The
family lived in a rented house
on North Lakeview Drive while
their new home was being built
and moved into it in 1923, dur-,
ing the latter stages of construc-
tion.
"I can just remember moving
into' the ,house before the
cement porch floor had been
pouredso that a wide board was
the walkway into the ,living
room," his son, Jack Ingle
recalled. "My friends ,and I
played in the porch area, using
it like a giant sandbox, until it
was finished."
Young Ingle was about 3


.years old at the time, and his
new baby sister Ann had just
been bom. Four older children
from J.W. Ingle's first marriage
joined them in the spacious new
home, surrounded by 'v ide
spaces of vacant land on both
sides. The house had six bed--
rooms and two bathrooms, one
on each floor.
J W. and Pauline Ingle had
chosen the' Airplane Btngaloxw
style on the advice of their
architect. 'kho told them it was
the best design for a warmcli-
mate. The entire foundation is
raised and the enclosures under
the foundation are latticed brck
to let air circulate underneath.
The wide overhanging roofs
provide shade, and the upper.
story has windows on all four
sides to allow cross ventilation.
The Ingle house has case-:
ment windows upstairs. The
. window frames are hinged on
one side so that they s%,ing out
to open, allowing lake breezes
inside.
"I slept upstairs all of mM
teenage years and can never
remember not being able to
sleep. Early summer evenings
were hot, but it cooled off by
bedtime. I always had to have at
least a sheet over me" Jack
Ingle said.

him?".Claire asked Charles.
* "I don't know. But, we've always said
we wanted our marriage to honor him.
What better way than in ministry to
other couples? .
They even went and spoke with one of
the leaders of the conference but they
didn't receive the affirmation they
thought they would.
Undaunted, they pursued other
Christian ministries that caught their
eye. But to no avail. Claire clung to their
pursuit, even when Charles seemed to be
less eager. In the meantime, they contin-
ued to minister in their own church
through teaching, and singing.
After a while, Claire noticed that,
Charles was becoming discontent in his
job. Instead of being grateful for his
work, it 'seemed to be in the way of
"more meaningful" pursuits. It was at
this juncture that Claire began to ques-
tion her motivation in keeping this quest


alive.
Her view "of the
future was influencing
her husband's attitude
immensely. Charles
needed to be fulfilled
in his wbrk and not
,' think of it as less
important than a non-
i,- 'secular position.
ERNEWSSUN While praying
about all of. this one
day, Claire's blinders fell off and her
thinking revolutionized. She suddenly
realized that they had been vainly
attempting to lead God down a road .of
their making and had been tripping over
the obvious.
There was no mistaking the voice of
conviction that cahie to Claire that day.
"You have a ministry. It's right here in
your home and it's to these three pre-
cious children. They come first."
Then, as if that wasn't enough revela-
tion, a question followed.
"Didn't you pray for a mate- with
whom you could sing? Did I not answer
that prayer?"
She couldn't wait for Charles to come
home so she could share how they'd
almost missed what God had so obvi-
ously given them all along.
With their focus rightly placed, con-
tentment returned. It felt so good to be
sure-footed again.

hold.- stop, look and listen to the obvi-
oi's around you. Is God prompting you

6ther but, most importantly, listen
for God's voice through prayer, the

stances of your life.

Curl-up together
When either or both of you feel

Eight plants selected as 'Florida Plants of the Year'


Each year since 1998 the
Florida Nursery, Growers &
Landscape Association selects
eight plants for Florida plants of
the year. This program pro-
motes the use of underutilized,
but proven, Florida plant mate-
rial.
The FNGLA is a member-
driven association that recog-
nizes the need for individual
industry "to unify. FNGLA
works to better the industry,
raising the bar on professional-
ism by spearheading marketing
programs. Following is the
2006 plant list:
Phalaenopsis Baldan's
Kaleidoscope Golden Treasure
Hardiness: Zone 10-11
Mature height and spread: 15
inches and up

It doesn't seem to matter how,
many winters I've spent in
Florida, I still get a great deal of
satisfaction about where I live
when I watch the Weather
Channel. What a pleasure to
grow flowering plants and to go
for long walks. Getting to the
store' doesn't involve scraping
snow off windows, wearing
snow boots, or braving icy'
roads ... I really enjoy the free-
dom from heavy clothing and
dangerous weather conditions.
'(We already had the specter of
dangerous weather during hur-
ricane season.)
.Are ydu majoring on your
blessings this new year? If we
are what we think, then let your
libraries get your mind on better
thoughts and possibilities by
browsing through, "The Daily

"Flow: The Psychology of
Optimal Experience;" "Good

classic, "The Be Happy

Emily McCully's children's
book, "Crossing the New
Bridge," tells about the town
that built a new bridge over the
river. The happiest person in the

,I like the fictional young
adult book by Mark Renz called
"Doug's Ark: Thinking Outside
the Pile." The story has five
young animals and insects (one
is a dung beetle) meeting at a
waterhole to discuss life. What
they discover about living, and
themselves, makes for some
thoughtful discussion and a few
questions that can't be neatly


swept underground.
Their talks conclude
it's a dung world after
all, and education
begins at the water-

about happiness, reli-
gion, ethics, kind-
ness, death, love,
sports, even the art of
rolling the perfect

t Looking Back/

Looking Forward
The month of January is named after the two-faced Greek god
Janus,.a god who could.simultaneously look backwards and
forwards. Indeed, January is a month when many of us look back at
the yearthat has just ended while looking forward' to the year to
come. But unlike Janus, we are unable to simultaneously look
forward and backwards, and our memories are as poor as our
foresight is shortsighted. Therefore, we would do well to consider
what we have accomplished in the previous year, and then consider
what we would like to accomplish in the year
ahead. As the saying goes: If you don't now A f
where you are going, you will probably end up
somewhere else. Unfortunately, most people
resolve to work harder, to lose weight or to get in
shape;'all goals which are laudable but destined
to mean very little in the grand scheme of things.
Let me suggest that we think'hardest about our
resolve to be a better, kinder, more decent person.
Surely, becoming a kinder, better, more decent
person and having' a closer relationship with God
are more likely to have a greater effect on the
people we come in contact with, and at the same -
time, these actions might just save our souls.


So then, as we have the opportunity, let us do
good to all men, And especially to those who are
of the household of faith.

Ramblin' Rose Band kicks off




new year at Highlands Hammock


I would like to wish a happy
new year to everyone. Now that
2005 is officially over, -all that
remains are the memories and
experiences. We hope that you
and your family had the oppor-
tunity to enjoy camping or bicy-
cling in the beautiful weather
we've recently been experienc-
ing. If you didn't, why not con-
sider making that one of your
resolutions for this new year?
Florida State Parks have so
much to offers families, teens,
adults and seniors. One of those
experiences is coming up at
Highlands Hammock State Park
on Jan. 21. The Ramblin' Rose
band will perform from 7-9
p.m. in the picnic area.
As the third concert in our
2005/2006 "Music in the Park"
series, this performance will
feature high-energy traditional
and modem bluegrass music.
Admission is $5 per person and
accompanied children age 16
and under are admitted free of
charge. Bring a lawnchair or
blanket, flashlight, bug spray,


and any other items
you might need.
Picnickers and tail-
gaters are welcome,
or you can plan to
purchase dinner,
snacks and desserts at
the Hammock Inn.
Whether you bring,
your dinner, or buy
from the restaurant,
you are sure to have a
lovely evening out.
You can enjoy the
cool weather,
evening breezes and
upbeat music.


THE REAL

FLORIDA

Dorothy Harris


This energetic
group consists of six ladies, five,
of which are actually family.
Loretta Woodson, the mom,
plays rhythm guitar and sings.
Her daughters,, Linda Philips,
Kathy DeVane and Renee
Riddle, play the bass guitar,
banjo and fiddle. Her grand-
daughter, Kristin Jenkins, plays
the guitar. All the ladies provide
vocals along with Crisha
Ashwill, who plays the man-


dolin.
These ladies per-
formed for us last
year and have also
played throughout
the United States and
into parts of Canada.
In 1984, just three
years after the band
formed, they won
third place in the
Florida Bluegrass
Championship. Later,
in 1991, they per-
formed again and
won the second place
championship title.
Now you can


enjoy their music here at
Highlands Hammock. Concert
attendees are welcome to come
out early and set up their pic-
nics; just remember that arrival
prior to 6 p.m. will require you
to pay the park entry fee of $4
per carload. We recommend
that anyone planning to tailgate
or barbecue consider this early
arrival to ensure parking at the


concert/picnic area circle. Once
this parking is full, you may
drive in to drop off chairs, bas-
kets, family members, etc., and
then park your vehicle in the
overflow parking area just a
short distance away.
We look forward to ringing
in the new year with you out
here in "the real Floridaism."
Come join us for a fun, relaxing
evening out. Best of all, concert
admission proceeds benefit
your state park through the
Friends of Highlands
Hammock. Visit its .booth to
learn more about the programs,
projects, and park improvement
plans for 2006.


Dorothy Harris is a park
services specialist at Highlands
Hammock State Park, Sebring.

BUNGALOWS
Continued from 1B
The senior Ingle was his own contractor, and
built the house with the help of John Seay, a con-
tractor from Athens. "John and my Dad had built
hhouses in Athens so he agreed to help my-father.
He came down and lived with our family until the
house was completed," Ingle said.
"Father o\\ ned a large tract of land on the east
side of Dinner Lake," Ingle recalled. "Timber
was cut and then ferried across the lake to a
sawmill on Recreation Point. There it was cut to,
specifications to build our family house. The
lumber was then transported by mule wagon or
Model T truck to the building site."
Although Ingle does not remember the details
of the earlk construction. he heard about the
process from his parents. The original shingles
are still-on the house, cut on site from heart pine
;with a shingle machine brought from Georgia by
Seay.
"They stood the cut shingles on end in a tub of
green creosote paint. They did not have to be,
repainted for at least 50 \ears. These hiringle,
have never had to be replaced "
The lot slopes sharply% do\\ n tou ard the lake so
the plan was designed to accommodate the slope.
The back of the house is a full story 'off the
ground, putting the top floor three stories up to
catch lake breezes.
Ingle describes the waters of Lake Jackson as
"'pristine" in those 'ears. clear afterr w ith a white,
sand bottom.
"Lake Jackson was full of big bass." Ingle


remembered. "When I was very small, Dad and
Mother would drive around Lake Jackson where
there were no homes. Mother and I would stay in
the car while Dad would 'go fishing' with his 30-
30 rifle. It would not take him very long to get a
full mess for our family meal."
Shooting fish was legal and accepted, Ingle
quickly explained. Sporting men put up shooting
stands in shallow water along the uninhabited
side of the lake. This elevated them for shooting
fish. Some of these stands remained into the
1950s and 60s, long after shooting fish was ille-
gal.
The town of Sebring was booming at this time.
All of the Circle area and North Ridgewood
Drive were built up with many of the buildings
much as they are today. All city streets were
paved with sidewalks and the downtown area
lighted with the same light poles used today. .
In the resideni.il areas, electricity [ was avail-
able nights from dusk to 10 p.m. and on Monday
and Tuesday mornings for washing and ironing."
Ingle said. Later, the city bought the power plant
and electricity was available full time.
"Everyone had ice refrigerators with ice deliv-
ery from a diesel-powered ice plant on Park
Street. I; can remember feeling the vibrations and
hearing the sound of that large one-cylinder
diesel ice plant motor at my Dad's truck tLirn tour
miles away."
The family orange -rt'\ e was 65 acres located
between Downing and Power Line roads facing
State Road 17. It was first planted in 1918 and is
still in production.
".Dad h.id .- te.amn of mules to0 wor'k the h roxe at
first. Later; he had a steel-w.heeled tractor but the


heavy wheels would sink down into the sand. We
used to haul the tractor by the Model T truck
when it was moved from the grove to the veg-
etable farm on Jackson Creek. The tractor was so
heavy that the front wheels of the truck would
come off the ground. I would ride on the front
fender of the truck to help hold it down."
Although the early families worked hard to
establish their homes and businesses, they also
found time to socialize with friends and neigh-
bors. The Sebring Circle was the site of great
family entertainment then, as it is today.
"Many families would drive into town in early
evening and park their cars around the Circle and
Ridgewood Drive. Adults would visit from car to
car. Children would gather in the Circle to play or
romp around and have a good time," Ingle
remembered.
A city curfew ordinance forbade children to be
on city streets after 9, p.m.
"A loud horn was blown from the city power
plant for us to return to our pjients and go home."
Ingle attended the Sebring School located at
Center and Pine streets, which housed grades first
through 12th.
"I remember my older sister walking me there
when I first started. All the neighborhood kids
walked to school. We cut through vacant lots,
picking up others as we progressed. We had a
great time on the way to school."
Ingle was a member of the school band, which
was known throughout the state for its excel-
lence. He also played football for two years. He
graduated in 1939 and then left home to attend
the Uni\erstih of Florida in Gainesville.
Although Ingle has not lived in the Lakeview
Drive home since he left for college, he has many
fond memories of his "growing up eajs's in
Sebring. Two generations of Ingles resided in the
house for more than 80 years, until the de.iah of
his younger brother Robert in January 2005.
Ingle and his wife Kitty reside in Sebring in a
home on Little Lake Jackson.

Sebring embraces
Japanese architecture
The American Bungalow mingles elements of
the Arts and Crafts movement with Japanese
architecture that appeared at several world's fairs
in the late 1800s, most notably the California
Mid-Winter Exposition of 1894.
California architects and builders embraced the
low-profile style. The earliest examples were
large, rambling mansions with low-pitched gable
roofs and eaves that were wide and open. By the
turn of the century, the style had been adapted to
smaller houses and the Bungalow became associ-
ated primarily with modest suburban develop-
ment.,
In Sebring, the Hainz House is the most elabo-
rate sur\ i% ing example of theAirplane Bungalow

style, Stephen Olausen writes. "The. building has
a distinct Japanese influence exhibited by curved
beams in the gable ends and flared rafters and
purlins under the ea" es. The front porch has an
open front gable roof, which rests on massive bat-
tered briclh piers"
The house, built in about 1917, x as construct-
ed for Edward L. Hainz, an associate of George
E. Sebring, and one of, Sebring's pioneer busi-
nessmen. In 1923, he built the Hainz Bloc, an
impressive commercial building on North
Ridgewood Drive. no\'. a National Register build-
ing. Hainz was instrumental in securing the first
telephone service for Sebring, helped form the
Board of Trade and Rotary Club, and served sev-
eral terms on the city council.
The Hainz home, at 155 West Center St.; now
houses the offices of the Republican Party of
Highlands County. It was listed as an individual
proper, in ,the National Register of Historic
Places in 1989.
Copies of Stephen Olausen's book: "Sciting:
City on the Circle" are available at the office of
the Sebring Historical Societ. 321 West Center
Ave., on the lower level of the, Sebring Public
Library.

GPS receivers replace 'X' in modern-day treasure hunt


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
Treasure hunting has gone
high-tech with the Internet
serving as the map and satellites
providing the 'X' that marks the
spot..
The modem take on the age-
old treasure hunt began five-
and-a-half years ago, according
to geocaching.com, after
President William Clinton dis-
continued the intentional degra-
dation of global positioning
satellite's signals, a practice
known as Selective Availability
meant to limit civilian usage of
military-level positioning accu-
racy.
The president's announce-
ment was made May 1 and on
May 3, 2000, a container of
"goodies" and a logbook were
hidden near Portland, Ore.
A notice was made to an
obscure Internet list and the
cache was twice visited by May
6.
Thus. geocaching was born.
"I wanted a GPS. I thought it
would be cool to have and I
tra el for work`," Bruce
Fuzgerald, of Avon Park, said.
He searched Yahoo! pricing the
units and stumbled across the
geocaching game. *
His wife bought him a GPS
in 2002 for Christmas.
"There was only one cache at-
the time, it 'was in Hammock
Park," Fitzgerald said, recalling
his first find. "That was it. I
went home and subscribed (to
geocaching.com). I was
hooked."
The initial buy-in requires
the purchase tor gifting from 'a
lot ing relatives of a GPS, which.
can be found used for as little as
$50, ne%\ for about $100.for
basic models, or as much as a
S5 1.000 for ad% anced units with

neat-to-have but unnecessary
features.
Access to the Internet -
where participants can find
coordinates for caches, post
data for those they create, and
access logbooks to record a
stash's activity is also
required.
Fitzgerald, known as
'kayakanimal' (a nod to his
other hobby) at
geocaching.com, is responsible
for many of the Highlands


County caches.
"Most of mine' are here in
Avon Park," he said, 'standing
next to the California Zephyr, a
museum train car on display off
of Main Street.
Themes are common in the
game.
The Zephyr is one. of
Fitzgerald's locations in his
transportation series trains,
planes, automobiles and skate-
boards.
- "I never would ho.\e found
'' -2 '


this place if it wasn't for geo-
caching," is a common com-
ment made in the logs at the
Web site, Fitzgerald said. That
is one of the draws to the game,
which is played worldwide.
As of Tuesday, the Web site
reported 222,487 caches in 219
Countries.
Fitzgerald departs soon for
Europe, where business will
take him to Finland, Denmark
and Germany.
-- "I'll be caching in each of


them," he said. Later, "They're
everywhere. In Orlando, you
can drive 10 miles and probably
pass 2,000 caches."
There are several variances
in how the game is played,
Fitzgerald said.
Some caches are virtual and
others are micro. Some caches
want to travel and others adhere
to a theme.
"I try to put most of mine in a
really neat place," Fitzgerald
said.

In that case, he said, the

an actual (rather than virtual)

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Hello 2006


Sometimes I feel
as if I blink and
whole weeks go by
while my eyes are
shut for an instant.


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


who used the situa-
tion for their own
agendas. In the
end, Michael
Schiavo prevailed


as well as his moonwalk.
Tom Cruise appeared in
"War of the Worlds," which
unfortunately did not show him
as any great shakes as an actor
and wasn't helped by his zany
behavior while promoting it.
(As an aside, if you want to see
proof that Tom Cruise can act
and act well, check out "A Few
Good Men" and "Collateral.")
We found out, after years of
wondering, who "Deep Throat"
really was. In other political.
news, Sandra Day O'Conner
resigned from the Supreme
Court and Chief Justice William
Rehnquist passed away, giving
President Bush two slots to fill.
His first pick, Harriet Meirs,
caused a ruckus not among the
Left but the Right and the
Right won. Bush replaced her
with John Roberts, who in his
short stint as Chief Justice has
managed not to niake anyone
mad yet. In 2006, the presi-
dent's other nominee, Samuel
Alito, will be questioned and
challenged by the Senate.
Hopefully we will be able to
stay awake during the hearings.


Is it- the end of the
year already?
In some ways, 2005 was not
that different from 2004. In
both years, we were still at war.
In both years, Democrats were
still taking potshots at President
George W. Bush about it. I
don't expect that to change in
2006, though both being over
would be nice.
In 2005 a woman arose to
galvanize the anti-war move-
ment: Cindy Sheehan. Many
people, myself included, have
been reluctant to jump on this
woman who lost a son and may
. be speaking out of grief as well
as conviction. Nevertheless,
there were those against the war
hailed her and then used her for
their own agendas..
Another woman used by oth-
ers was Terri Schiavo, who
finally left this earth in 2005.
There were those on both sides
of the issue of whether or not
Terri Ncould be starved to death


Legacy will dog

us for years

Editor:
Reply to Janet Reno praise.
Dale Gillis in his letter,
News-Sun, Nov.20, praised for-
mer Clinton Attorney General
Janet Reno on her "obscenity
record." This is good, but
before we sing hosannas to her,
remember that while the Sept.
11, 2001, terrorists were train-
ing 11 miles away, Reno was
leading the charge to illegally
grab a child, (whose mother
gave her life to get him to free-
dom) and return him to slavery
in communist Cuba.
Now, let's look at what the
Clinton-Albright State Depart-
ment did.
A little history, first:
On Dec. 10, 1898, a peace
treaty was signed in Paris
between the United States and,
Spain after the Spanish-
American War. Article 1, ceded
the island of Cuba to the United
States and Article 11 ceded
Puerto Rico and the other
Spanish islands in the West
Indes, including those around
Cuba.
Our military occupation of
Cuba ended on May 20, 1902,
and the Nation of Cuba was-
born. It had only'the Island of
Cuba. On March 13, 1925, the
United States ceded the Isle of'
Pines to Cuba. No other islands
have been legally ceded to
Cuba.,
Now, According to retired
U.S. Navy Lt. Commander.
Carl Olson of State Department
Watch, the Clinton-Albright
State Department gave many
islands and islets to Cuba,
including but not limited to,
Cayco Coco, Cayco Romano,
Cayo Guajaba, CayoSabinal,,
Cayo Largo, the Archipielago
de Sabana and the Archipielago
de los Jardines de la Reina. All
of these lie near Cuba.,
According to International
Law, a sovereign country can,
.control 'fishing, mineral rights
including oil, and the airspace.
for 200 miles from its shore
line. When there is less than
400 miles between two coun-
tries they need to agree on a
line between them. The line
agreed upon by the Clinton-
Albright State Department goes
through the Strait of Florida
between Cuba and Florida. Our
State Department thus gave the
above islands and inlets to
Cuba.
By this action, we have lost
fishing, mineral, oil and air (fly
over) rights over tens of thou-
sands of square miles of territo-
ry. This could be billions of
dollars lost by our country.
Giving these islands and inlets
the communist regime is an


Pope John Paul II passed
away after serving the Catholic
church for 26 years. So did
Rosa Parks, whose refusal to
give up her seat on a bus result-
ed in lighting the fuse to the
civil rights movement.
We said a final good night to
Johnny Carson and Peter
Jennings. James Doohan, who
played Scotty on the television
series "Star Trek," was beamed
up by God.
In my personal life this year,
I had a son graduate from high
school and go on to college.
After several years, we became
an,iguana-free household, and I
can't say I'm sorry about that. I
wrote 50,000 words to a novel I
am now determined to finish. I
went to Guyana for the first
time, but probably not the last.
And I wrote this column.
That is one thing that probably
won't change in 2006.
Hopefully most of you think
that is a good thing.

dent. She can be contacted by

and Terri was free
from the controver-
sy that surrounded her, though
the questions that controversy
raised linger.
Highlands County got off
.with barely a slap during hurri-
cane season .in 2005, with only
Wilma providing anything
remotely like a threat to the
area.
The same cannot be said of
the Gulf Coast, where
Hurricane Katrina wreaked
havoc, misery and death. The
aftermath of Katrina laid bare a
number of problems that exist-
ed in New Orleans and changed
many people's lives, mostly not
for the better.
Michael Jackson's trial came
and mercifully went, with the
singer cleared on all' charges but
forever stained by the accusa-
tions. Jackson has apparently
left the United States and will
probably be remembered in the
future for his pajamas in court

his radical Republican cohorts
are so dedicated to his "mis-

many of their political base, the

Food and Toy

Run was great
Editor:
I would like to express my
gratitude to the many motorcy-
clists and others who partici-
pated in the sixth annual Lake


'We do not count heads before enforcing the First

Amendment.'

SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR, U.S. Supreme Court justice, 2005


Placid Food and Toy Run.
This toy run has continued to
grow each year with the sup-
port of the biker community.
The bikers in Highlands
County are always ready to
support a good cause and pull
together to make it successful.
I thank each club, group and
organization that pitched in and
made this run very special. It
was amazing to see the number
of motorcyclists who traveled
many miles to be a part of good
people doing good things for
those in need during the holi-
days. This run was very suc-
cessful because of all those that
participated and donated to this
cause.
Due to the support this year,
we were able to provide to chil-
dren in Highlands County and
Hardee County. Hopefully we
can reach out to help even more
next year with your support.
I would like to thank the fol-
lowing people: First Christian
Church of Avon Park, Dennis
Kellner and .Warren's Auto
Sales, J.P. Fane and the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Sebring and Lake
Placid police departments,
River Greens Golf Course,
Bishop Major Callahan, Mike
and Linda Young, John.
Frederick, Donnie Upshaw,
Chief Luke Andrews and the
Sun 'N Lake Volunteer Fire
Department of Lake Placid for
their continued support each
year.
To all those special people I
did not name, a big "thank you"
to you for making this event
happen. See you in December
2006 for the seventh annual
Lake Placid Food and Toy Run.

A special,


On Christmas day I
received a bit of a
special gift. It wasn't
under the tree or J
something that you
could wrap up and
put a bow on. It came
in the form of a visit
from a wee, tow- f
headed little girl,
dressed entirely from AF
head to toe in a
princess outfit pur-
chased as a gift for
her from Wal-Mart C.J. M
complete with blue
plastic high-heeled,
shoes, a blue satin dress with
poofy sleeves, and a sparkling
tiara.
The child was the 4-year-old
daughter of a friend of my old-
est.daughter, and her visit was
completely unexpected. My
first reaction was "what do I
's" know about 4-year-olds any-
more? How will I entertain this
child?" As it turns out, I needn't
have worried. After she ate a
good half of the Christmas
chocolate that was set out on
- the coffee table, she proceeded
to entertain me.
Pinching her left forearm/
between her right index finger
and thumb, she announced to
my husband quite emphatically
that she could "feel her bone."
Being a bit of a smart alec, I
promptly informed her that he
couldn't.
"In fact, you'd be hard
pressed to find anybody in this
house -that could feel one of
their bones," I said, which
brought a round of laughter
from the.adults and a wide-eyed'
uncomprehending stare from
the little girl.
Her next routine involved a,
hip-waggling arm-waving kind
of dance, accompanied by the
clip-clop of those plastic high

There are more than 40 caches

Maps are advisable though
some purists are said to use
only coordinates and their GPS.

Replace the cache where and
as you found it after signing the

To get you started, the News-
Sun created its own cache.
Inside the container, you'll
find several yellow News-Sun
balloons (new, and not-yet-
inflatedi. t%\ o, carabiners with:
S-4he company logo, and a well-
worn pencil actually used in the
editing process (probably
worth millions on eBay).
This cache will not be posted
at geocaching.com, until the
first finder e-mails the author
that he or she has found the
treasure.
The first finder can proudly
display his or her special prize,
which is included.
Due to the highly sensitive
nature of the animal nose, geo-
caching.com does not allow
any food items be left in a
cache and the News-Sun will
adhere to that standard.
Our cache, 'News-Sun' is at
N2728'15.6" and
W08127'12.8" and is for the
beginner. It'll blow you away.
Your only hint is its name.

Getting to most treasures is
often the easy part as the map
and 'X' are clearly denoted via
the high-tech, map that is the
Internet. ,
Once on location, however,
actually finding the cache can
S be the real challenges
S "You have to think like the
S person who hid it," Fitzgerald
said. "You have to ask yourself,
'Where would be a good place
to hide something.'"
To date, Fitzgerald has found
more than 400 caches and has
recruited family, friends, and
co-workers into the game -
which he said knows no age,
gender, or racial boundaries.
"I have met eight other


cachers just by accident," he
said, explaining that he's come
across players tracking the
same cache. "The youngest
cacher I met was 4 years old
and was with his dad; the oldest
was 91."

You can find anything in catalogs


4p


SFor several years now I have
been getting all the latest hunt-
ing and fishing catalogs and
have spent many enjoyable
hours flipping through the
slick, colorful pages of won-
derful things they offer for our
outdoor adventures. They
S"- cover every thing a fellow
could possibly need when
trudging off in search of his
quarry, whether fin, feather or
4fur.
These catalogs bring back
memories of when I was a kid
down on my grandparents'
farm. There was no indoor
plumbing, so water was drawn
from a well just a few steps
from the back door. When bath
time rolled around on Saturday,
a large No. 2 washtub served
as a bathtub. It worked very
S. well, especially if you were the
S. _. first kid into it. The hot water
.. came from a tea kettle kept
i. simmering on the old wood-
.. fired cook stove.
*. ., All you real old-timers can
remember the two-holer out-
house, where we went for a,
respite and to look at the Sears
Catalog. You could get
- 4b N O engrossed in it and in a bit
someone would be hollering,
S. "Are you all right out there?"
S -- The Sears catalog and the
q .h. outhouse are now things of the
S ^past, but these colorful hunting
and fishing catalogs today sure
S bring back those memories.
,One that I particularly like is
S. the Redhead Master Hunting
Catalog put out by Bass Pro
-_ Shops. You can get a copy by
S giving them a call at 1-800-
S 227-7776 or request one online
-at basspro.coin. This catalog
has everything you'll ever need

YEAR
Continued from 1E
While Williams opted not to
sit home, Jack McKeon decid-
ed it was time for him to go
home.
McKeon, who managed the
Florida Marlins to a World
Series title in 2003, resigned in
October. Two months later,
most of his team had been sent,
elsewhere as well.
Frustrated by the inability to
close a stadium deal, the
Marlins embarked on what
they called a "significant mar-
ket correction." Most everyone
else called it a fire sale, like
the selloff that followed-the
1997 World Series title run.
Among the departed: Josh
Beckett, Mike Lowell, Juan
Pierre, Carlos Delgado, Luis
Castillo, Paul Lo Duca, A.J.
Burnett, Jeff Conine, Todd
Jones and Alex Gonzalez.
"'It's a market that can han-
dle baseball," said Lowell, who
spent seven seasons with
Florida before being traded to
Boston. "I'm just not sure if
it's a baseball market yet."
No, football has always been
the favorite among those in
South Florida and while the
Dolphins missed the playoffs
for a fourth straight year, their
fans got to celebrate their
hero's work one more time.
Former Dolphins quarter-
back Dan Marino was voted
into football's shrine, being
enshrined at the Pro Football
Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio
oqAug. 7 after a career with
4.067 completions, 8,358
at empts for 61,361 yards, and
420 touchdowns.
"'What I cherish more than
ary record that I hold, any
fdurth-quarter comeback, any
win that I was involved in ... is
th) relationships that I've
made, the people I've worked
with, the teammates I lined up
beside, the opponents that I've
competed against," Marino
said in his induction speech.
,The only thing missing from
Marino's resume was a title.
The Tampa Bay Lightning
finally got to celebrate theirs
more than a year after win-
ning the Stanley Cup.


Hockey returned in 2005,
after the 2004-05 season was
canceled after a lockout. But in
October, the Lightning hoisted
their Cup banner and opened
defense of their first champi-
onship.
"We talked about getting
closure. I think we all needed
that," said Brad Richards, the,,
star of that playoff run. "It's
been a while. ... We've got to
move on. It's not our Cup any-
more."
In college football, Southern
California did what the
Lightning will try to do -
defend a crown.
At the Orange Bowl, what
was supposed to be a classic
turned into a coronation. Top-
ranked USC overwhelmed No.
2 Oklahoma 55-19 in the
Orange Bowl, winning the
2004 season's Associated Press
and Bovwl Championship Series
national titles.
USC quarterback Matt
Leinart threw an Orange Bowl-
record five.touchdown passes,
shredding one of the nation's
top defenses with ease.
"I think we proved tonight
that we are the No. 1 team in
the country without a doubt,"
Leinart said.
USC posted another perfect
regular season in 2005, and
will play Texas for its third
straight national title in the
Rose Bowl on Jan. 4.
The only Florida team to
celebrate a college football title
in 2005 was Florida State,
which pulled off a surprising
27-22 upset of Virginia Tech in
the Atlantic Coast Conference
title game. But the Seminoles'
biggest victory of the year may
have come far from any athlet-
ic venue.
Florida State successfully
lobbied the NCAA to reverse
an earlier decision and contin-
ue allowing the school to use
its. Seminoles nickname, which
had been defined as "hostile
and abusive" this past summer.
Florida State was among a
list of colleges with American
Indian nicknames that were
being restricted by the NCAA
decision. But after major out-
cry from lawmakers and the
Seminole Tribe of Florida,
which supported the school -


the mandate, at least in Florida
State's case, was reversed.
"The decision of a namesake
sovereign tribe, regarding
when and how its name and
imagery can be used, must be
respected even when others
may not agree," NCAA senior
vice president Bernard
Franklin said.
Others certainly did not
agree with Malcolm Glazer in
2005.
Glazer, the self-made bil-
lionaire and owner of the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers, seized
control of Manchester United
- the world's richest soccer
club.
Man U fans in Britain react-
ed angrily, many expressing
concerns that ticket prices
would soar and the new owner
would destroy the team's tradi-
tion.
But Glazer's son Joel told
the BBC in June: "We would
have not got involved with
Manchester United if we did
not feel that the club under our
ownership could continue to be
the great club it has been."
And restoring greatness was
what Urban Meyer set out to
do at Florida.
In his first season as the
Gators' football coach, Meyer
instituted plenty of new tradi-
tions, including the "Gator
Walk" (where fans could wish
the team well before home
games) and the "Champions
Club" (membership gets week-
ly players of the game a steak
dinner).
Most importantly to Gator
fans, though, Meyer brought
back an old tradition: winning.
Florida went 6-0 at home in
Meyer's first season, and his
team became the first in school
history to beatTennessee,
Georgia and Florida State in
the same regular season -
while not trailing at any point
in those games.
"We've had some speed
bumps along the way," Meyer
said, "but I'm real proud of
this season."

OUTDOORS

Lloyd Jones

in the outdoors, I think. If you
don't find it in here, you don't
need it.
For instance, do you need a
camouflage suit? Look on page
63 for my choice, the
Whitewater Outdoors 3D Real
Leaf Suit. Ain't that a beauty?
The jacket has what looks like
real leaves hanging all over it.
The advertising says, "The
leaves actually stand up to
eliminate your silhouette
instead of laying flat and giv-
ing curious game something to
look at." Curious game? Are
they kidding? ..
With this -suit on and stand-
ing with your arms overhead,
you v, would look like a short
tree. While lying on the
ground, you could be mistaken
for a pile of raked leaves and if
squatting this suit would make
you look like a blackberry
bush. You sure don't want your
friends to see you in this.
For duck hunters, /the duck
.alls on page 552 are really
.pretty; I don't duck.htint, so I
really don't know why a fellow
would need duck calls in dif-
, ferent colors. Now, these
things are not cheap. You can


get everything from loud ring-
ing hail calls to super sexy,
soft, up-close, put-your-land-
ing-gear-down calls. They are
sharp looking and made of
acrylics.
Would a canvas back or wild
mallard really care if it was
red, blue, yellow or smoke in
color? You can still get these
calls made of wood, but that
beautiful red one made of
acrylic and called the Redneck
is probably the favorite at
$129.99.
0 A lot of big game hunters
have taken up bow hunting.
Game all the way from white-
tail deer to the largest Alaska
brown bears are being hunted
with bow and arrow with great
success.
For you archery enthusiasts,
those beautiful compound
bows starting on page 302 are
just out of this world. If you
need a new bow or any acces-
sory, you'll find it here. My
knowledge of compound bows
is very limited, but these
should satisfy the most dis-
criminate user.
-Call and get your free cata-
log and also ask for the 2006
Fishing master catalog. You
will be pleasantly surprised at
all the things contained in
either catalog. Both are much,
prettier than the old Sears ren-
derings and you don't have to
sit in a cold outhouse while
pondering what you want to
buy before you tear out and,
crinkle up a page.
Know what I mean?
