By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Community
Redevelopment Agency deals in brick and
mortar facade improvements to buildings
in its district but could begin operating, in
part, from the realms of cyberspace.
Tracy Mullins, an urban planner with
Michael Joachim & Associates, intro-
duced Webpolis to the commissioners at a
recent workshop.
I On the Internet at www.webpolisdinfo,
Webpolis is a consortium designed by.
Eastern Michigan University that pro-
vides online planning tools to local go.,-
erminent agencies and the tax-paying citi-
zens they serve.
"It's the future of public involvement in
government," Mullins told the commis-
sioners, explaining that the conimmunit,,
can keep up with what the CRA is doing.
without attending every meeting.
James F. McCollum welcomed the idea
of using the forums on the Web site to
hold discussions outside of the" semi-
monthly meetings.
However, the CRA wanted City
Attorney J. Michael Swaine to ensure that
Florida's Sunshine Law isn't violated and
to figure out how best to give proper pub-
lic notice of online forums.
"I think it's a great idea. Obviously,"
McCollum said, nodding toward an empty
gallery in the city hall auditorium. "we
would welcome any public input."
Logging onto the program requires reg-
istering with the site, a quick process in,
which the user creates a username and
password and provides an e-mail address
and phone number.
From there, the user can select a com-
munity to monitor. For Sebring, select
"mullins."
A few CRA commissioners have
entered the site to review it but, pending
Swaine's legal advice, haven't initiated
any discussions, IlMullins said.
"We want to make absolutely sure
we're complying with the Sunshine
Laws," Mullins said.
Several links offer messaging capabili-
ties, private notes to :self, news announce-
ments, a discussion forum, and an internal
search engine.
From these, sub-links provide specific
functions, such as the application link,

AVON PARK -In history
there have been many miscon-
ceptibns regarding those who.
are not able to hear.
According to Nancy
Brinkley Weems Hardee
County, resident, author of
"Looking Through the
Rearview Mirror," and teacher
of American Sign Language -
St. Augustine of Hippo taught
that deafness was the result of
secret sins on the part of the
parent and "history has related
that the most common practice
was to drown deaf children -
people believed that 'no speech
meant no intelligence.' "
Society has gained a better
understanding of the deaf; but
there is a long way to go if the
needs of this segment of'the
population are to be met.
According to New York
School for the Deaf ASL
teacher Carolyn Armour, in her
article, entitled "Worship in
Silence," "ASL is the third most
used language in the United
States." However, only recently
*has it been accepted as a foreign
language for school credit.
Weems now offers the class
at South Florida Community
College.
Weems explained that until
William StokoeJr.'s extensive
research, signing was viewed as
a substandard practice. "In the
'70s he did a lot of research that

sdniors show up with painting nmateri-
als that they purchase themselves, and

Senior sponsors Andrea Brown and
Penny Jahna coordinate and supervise

rate the correct spaces and stay within
the:- appro\iinately 9-foot by 4-foot
allotted tar and gravel canvases.
Brown, media specialist for Avon
Park High School, offered the students
a second chance this year to lease a
pace if they failedto do so; at the

beginning of the year. An additional
opportunity also was offered to touch
up existing artwork or paint new spaces
on Thursday.
With so rnani opinions and tastes, it
seems it would be 'a daunting task to
make sure nothing objectionable goes
pernimneiitl\ onto the senior parking
,surface. According to Brown, the kids
usually\ manage to work within the set
boundaries. -

someone will paint outside the allotted
space, and we have to make them paint
over part of their artwork, but other
than that we have'few problems."
From dramatic to comedic, the cre-
ativity 'of the students knows no
bounds. Such as Matt Flowers whose
space offers "free oil" (that apparently
drips-perpetually from his vehicle) and
Lee Albritton's "Scarface" space that
depicts the chalk outline of a body.

for the whole process.
"At the end of the year w e gather the

Jahna' said. "We get out here with

showed that ASL was equal to
any spoken language," she said.
This began the slow and crit-
ical process of addressing the
needs of the deaf.
According to David F.
Armstrong, of the Gallaudet
University, in a biographical,
article about Stokoe,
(gupress.gallaudet. edu/stokoe.h
tml), "At the time of (Stokoe's)
arrival at Gallaudet, the sign
language used by deaf


Americans and now known as
ASL was generally believed to
be a corrupt visual code for spo-
ken English or elaborate pan-
tomime. It and other languages
were widely suppressed in edu-
cational programs for deaf stu-
dents, in favor of instruction in
articulation and lip-reading."
During this time it wasn't
uncommon for children to be
physically punished for trying
to use sign language.


Although the saying "better
late than never" holds true, the
years of ignorance and conse-
quential neglect and mistreat-,
ment of the deaf world, have yet
to be fully rectified, in spite of
newfound enlightenment.
Weems .has pioneered the
inclusion of ASL for local
schools and is currently the
teacher of this subject in the

SEBRING Building a

sell; it's a big bill.
Pamela Richmond, special
projects manager for Florida's

Heartland Coast-to-Coast
expressway, roughly 130-150
miles between Moccasin
Wallow Road in Manatee

Instead, it could connect to
the turnpike where Indian

She has a preliminary route,
but it's just a line on a map, she
said. A permanent route
depends on what people want
and the real need.
Need?
Richmond's study area lies
between State Road 60 and
State Road 70. Even though
people complained the two
roads weren't safe or efficient,
traffic projections on those
-roads are too low to guarantee
toll revenue will pay for a turn-
pike.
Still, there are'not good effi-
cient means of connecting the
two coasts through central
Florida. The urban areas on
both ends could provide that

for the road avoids most sensi-

News-Sun, Friday, January 27, 2006


Garcia charged with meth,


DUI and domestic violence


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Highlands
County sheriff's deputies raced
to Don Carlos Avenue East at
10:10 a.m. Sunday to respond
to a report of a disturbance with
a gun.
As the deputy drove south on
State Road 17, he saw several
cars stopped in the middle of
the road. A black Isuzu sport-
utility vehicle matching a
description of the assailant's car
had rolled over.
It was on its roof, on top of a
fence on the side of the road.
A Hispanic man matching
the assailant's description was
staggering around inside the
fence line, arrest reports said.
Eventually, he turned to face
the deputy and smiled, alleged-
ly ignoring the deputy's com-
mands to take his hands out of
his back pockets. Eventually, he
put his hands in the air and lay
face down.
A sheriff's lieutenant assisted
in securing the man, later iden-
tified as Serafin Pantoja Garcia,
32, of Frostproof. He told
deputies he spoke a little
English, was driving the car,
and was injured a little bit,
reports said.
One of his sneakers was
under the brake pedal. The
other was on his foot.
Reports state deputies
smelled alcohol on him. When
Emergency Medical Services
arrived, they allegedly found
several beer bottles around the
SUV.
When the car was turned
upright,. deputies allegedly
found an empty gun clip
between the center console and
driver's seat. They also found


two small clear orange Baggies
with a white powder in them,
partially under the driver's seat,
reports said.
The powder allegedly field-
tested positive for methamphet-
amine.
When the
li eutenant
escorted him to
a hospital, dis-
,.' .p patchers
S 1earne d
Garcia's entire
name, that his
GARCIA driver's license
was suspended, and he had a
warrant for violation of proba-
tion on a driving under the
influence offense.
While he was there, Sebring
police read him his Miranda
rights under investigation for
possible aggravated battery
charges the night before. He
,refused to answer questions or
give a statement.
However, he agreed to an
implied consent draw of blood.
Deputies charged Garcia
with driving as an habitual traf-
fic offender, driving under the
influence, DUI with property
damage, and possession of both
methamphetamine and drug.
paraphernalia.
Deputies could not locate the
vehicle's owner that day,, but
contacted a witness from the
wreck. She told deputies Garcia
was chasing her car at 80 mph
and allegedly attempted to cut
her off when he lost control and
wrecked.,
She'also happened to be the
victim in the Sebring case.
At 8:35 p.m. Saturday, police
responded to reports of shots
fired, and found a Hispanic
woman, sitting outside a resi-


dence, saying she heard no gun-
fire.
Dispatchers told police a
female caller said Garcia shot
her, and gave a description of
him. Police asked the again if
anything had happened. Again,
the woman said no, and even let
police search the home.
The victim, meanwhile, was
heading to Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center in
Sebring. When questioned, she
told police she approached
Garcia as he sat in a chair out-
side the house and asked a
question. Reports don't say
what the question was, but he
allegedly got mad and pulled a
9mm black handgun from his
waistband.
She'asked if he was going to
shoot her, and allegedly, he
pointed the gun down and start-
ed to shoot at her from 10 feet
away.
She started to run toward her
car, and allegedly, bullets struck
her right ankle, twice. An
unknown male grabbed Garcia
and pulled him away, reports
said.
The victim got in her car and
left, calling 911.
Allegedly she and Garcia
have been living together for
three weeks.
A witness who left with the
victim allegedly saw Garcia
pull out the gun and shoot the
victim.
He also was charged by
Sebring police with domestic
violence aggravated battery.
Bond was' set at $3,500, but
he was held without bond on
the domestic violence and
charge and violation of proba-
tion warrant.

New Christian Hispanic station coming to Sebring


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Jorge Martinez
left Puerto Rico and arrived in
Sebring with a mission to
spread the gospel. The First
Baptist Church in Sebring orig-
inally sponsored his dream for a
location and tower for a
Christian fadio station.
Unfortunately, things move
slowly with bureaucracies.
When the Federal
Communications Commission
finally gave permission three
and a half years later, the church
facility and money were no
longer available.
But as some opportunities


vanished, others appeared.
Several people of faith came
together, offering their expert-
ise, hopes and perseverance for
this common goal.
Don Roberts is the contact
person with the board of
Ministerio'Radial.Christiano de
Sebring Inc., which is com-
posed of area pastors And lay
persons cooperating to set up
WVDV at 104.9 FM this sum-.
mer. Roberts is pastor of First
Baptist Church of Leisure
Lakes in Lake Placid and also
director of Grace Academy of
Sunridge Baptist Church in
Sebring. He had 20 years of
radio and television background


hosting Pat Robertson's 700
Club.
"It was rare that the FCC
even. opened a two-month
application window for a low-
power FM station to create
more community involvement
for a different voice that's not
typically heard. So it was a mir-
acle" that Martinez stumbled
into this application process at
the opportune time and was
ultimately approved even
though that took three and one-
half years to finalize," Roberts
said.
The FCC requires 38 hours
of local programming.
"Although this will be a pre-


dominantly Hispanic station,
MRC members insist it will
dedicate a certain number of
hours to be broadcast in
English. WVDV at 104.9 FM
will provide local programming
for Highlands County and will
carry Christian music, mes-
sages and information for our
community.- This voice will
serve the public, our churches
and also cover emergency prob-
lems in Spanish when they
occur. Several of the area pas-
tors felt we just could not let
this opportunity go," Roberts
said.
Although the original loca-
tion and finances were no


longer available, but with the
final FCC approval now grant-
ed, that's when the Rev. George
Lockhart of Sunridge Baptist
Church, another board member,
offered his church for the loca-
tion and tower.
"There are still lots of negoti-
ations and approvals required
for the final nuts and bolts, but
this will be wonderful for our
community. It's already brought
together the Christian groups.
There's a unity of faith and
belief in our Lord Jesus Christ
and the central theme of how
best to serve. Our churches are
all cooperative, yet not forsak-
ing our personal faith purposes.


There is a real need to heal area
families that are hurting and
falling apart. This radio station
can be an inroad to strengthen
and encourage child-parent
relationships," Lockhart said.
Puerto Rican Tito Ramos,
another board member, said,
"When I retired and moved to
Sebring in 1990, I dedicated
myself as a missionary with
various ministries. We have
great expectations of this new
radio station WVDV at 104.9
FM. We're excited to open our
arms to all Christians who wish
to participate."
Roberts can be reached at
386-1020..

SEBRING The second
phase of the Sebring Parkway
has gotten two steps closer.
On Tuesday, county commis-
sioners approved the purchase
of two strips of land to accom-
modate turn lanes at one inter-
section and a sidewalk at anoth-
er.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavariete and Land Acquisition
Manager Kathy Aviretf had the
board buy just less than one
acre of frontage at 3201 DeSoto
Road to provide right of way
for right and left turn lanes
heading east into the Parkway.
Since that land is grove, the
appraised value was $136,700,
not including the title insur-


ance, document stamps and
closing agent fees.
That land will also provide
room for drainage swales.
The other parcel was a small
strip of frontage at 1580
Highlands Ave., about a half-
mile south of the Highlands
Avenue and Kenilworth Drive
intersection.
It cost the county $7,000,
without the insurance, stamps
and fees, and will make room
for the sidewalk that will paral-
lel the Parkway when it's com-,
pleted.
Gavarrete said both parcels
should close within the next
two weeks, and then they will
have more land purchases to
bring before the board.
The engineering department


has two more purchases to pres-
ent to the board next month,
and will still look at having the
county buy 30 properties after
,that, Avirett said.
She said a few purchases will
be arrangements with local
agencies, including the city of
Sebring, The School Board of
Highlands County and the rail-
roads: CSX Transportation and
South Central Florida Express.
Gavarrete has hoped to pur-
chase all of the land for the
Parkway by the end of this year.
Hopefully, the county can get
started on the Parkway, phase 2,
by then. Gavarrete has said
there is a lot of work needed on
side streets to get intersections
re.ids for increased traffic
loads.


Outboard racing returns to Tulane


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun.
AVON PARK Monday's
Avon Park City Council meet-
.ing gave the Peace River
Outboard Racing iAssociation
the green light,to go ahead, and
schedule its April boat race to.
be held on Lake Tulane.,
Paul Hooten, president of the
association, had approached the
council at a meeting on Jan. 9,
requesting permission to host
an annual boat race on the lake,
which association members had
raced on years ago. .
Due to some concerns of res-
idents, particularly those living
around Lake Tulane, and other
concerns of the city, the council
made a decision to table the
issue in order to look into it
more thoroughly.
Hooten brought a boat to the
lake the following Sunday for a
demonstration to give neigh-
bors and city officials an idea of
the noise the boats would gen-
erate. Other cities in which the


organization races were also
contacted for feedback.
According to Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director David
Greenslade, the APBA's request

own journeys may have a
divine purpose.
Weems didn't know why she.
was uprooted from her comfort-
able home and forced to move
with her husband (transferred
by his employer), to Hardee
County, but through that move,
she became instrumental in
ways she never could have
imagined.
One significant achievement
that arose as a result is that she
is now a teacher of American
Sign: Lang'uEie something
she had never heard of until
before.
On a visit to the hospital with
a friend, whose son had spinal
bifida, she noticed two orderlies
signing.
"They were laughing and
were very expressive," she said.
"I was fascinated, but didn't
know what they were doing."
Just weeks later the first of
several deaf people began
attending her church.
A trade-off occurred between
her and a little boy who was
deaf.
"He loved horses and rodeos
and I wanted to learn to sign; so
I taught him to ride and he
taught me to sign," she said.
Through self studies of ASL,
and interaction with deaf indi-
viduals who came into her life,
she eventually became a special
education teacher and, over

"The attitude has changed

Sthe deaf community, the use of
signed English just for the deaf.
. But I've-spent the-last 10'-years
Trying to fill that," she said.
One of the biggest problenis
is that nine of 10 deaf children
are born to hearing families
with no knowledge of the deaf
world, and most deaf children
are not diagnosed until 3 to 4,
years of age, according to
Weems.
,Through her efforts, South
Florida Community College
offers ASL in Highlands
County. Her students, come
from all walks of life, enrolling
for various reasons.
For some of Weems' stu-
dents, the learning of ASL is not
just an academic requirement,
but an imperative.
Student Tylene Gandy, 36, of
Avon Park, chose the course
because of her 18-year-old son
with Down syndrome.
"I wanted to communicate
with Aaron," she said. Through

credit, but she and her son are

Jennifer Goddard, 24, .of
Avon Park, attends class for her
4-year-old son Seth, who is
deaf.
"I'm learning it to teach him.
He's learned the important
things like 'candy,' 'please,'
and 'thank you,'" she laughed.
Inspired by Weems, Goddard
will soon be moving to :St.

attend a school for the deaf.
"He', a bit sh\ because he'

SEBRING Here's a mys-
tery for those people who love a
good who-done-it who bene-
fits the most from the mystery
dinner fund-raiser to be
Saturday, Feb. 11, at the
Highlands Little Theatre?
The answer, for the 11th year
in a row, is the Children's
Museum of the Highlands at
219 N. Ridgewood Drive.
Although Linda Crowder, coor-
dinating the (Murder) Mystery
Dinner Fund-raiser for the
museum, said the'audience ben-
efits too, by having "a really
great time."
The play is called "Roast
'Em, Toast 'Em" and the fun
begins right away, with actors
in character mingling with the
audience from the moment the
doors open at 6 p.m.
The audience is advised to.be
alert as the characters will be
dropping clues long before any-
one is murdered. A short scene
then takes place, during which
a character is killed off.
Crowder explained that in
years past some of the murders


occurred off stage, or off to the
side, but in one famous instance
the victim was shot in front of
the audience, while they were
eating the entree, and still no
one saw who had done it.
Once the murder has
occurred, the sleuth a police-
man or amateur, similar to fic-
tional television characters like
Jessica Fletcher or Benjamin
Matlock arrives on the
scene, and begins asking ques-
tions.
Members ofthe audience are
also given an opportunity to
question suspects.
But be warned, Crowder
said, because the murderer will
almost always lie. And will cer-
tainly never directly admit his
or her guilt.
When all the necessary infor-
mation has been divulged,
which doesn't mean everything
will be crystal clear, audience
members vote for-whom they
think is the guilty party. Those
who guess correctly win prizes.
The quality of the evening is
:enhanced by the quality of the
acting, Crowder said.
The actors are professionals,


who augment their income
working for the Sleuth Dinner
Theatre, out of Orlando.
Following the mystery there
will be a silent auction, and a
small live auction as well.
This is the museum's main
fund-raising event of the year.
Tickets can only be purchased
at the museum. They cost $60
apiece.
Crowder pointed out that the
price includes a pasta or prime
rib dinner prepared by The
Depot of Avon Park, and bene-
fits a worthy cause.
Only cash and checks can be
accepted.
The museum will provide, at
an extra charge, babysitting for
children 2-12 years old. But
reserve a space now, as it only
has room for 30 children.
An early response is impor-
tant for the mystery itself,
Crowder added, as there are
onily 196 seats in the theater.
Tickets went on sale Jan. 20,
and already 60 have been sold.
The last several years the event
quickly sold out.
To make a reservation or for
details, call 385-5437.


Highlands doing



homeless survey,


SEBRING -Hurricanes are
expected to have increased the
number of homeless people in
Florida's Heartland.
As a result, the Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless Inc. is conducting a'
census of those who are home-
less, housed by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, living in temporary
locations; or living with friends
or relatives.
They did a census on
Thursday in Avon Park, Lake
Placid, Lorida and Sebring dur-
ing daylight hours. Personal
care items were distributed to
all homeless people who partic-
ipated in the survey.
Penny Phillippi, Highlands
County Housing Department
coordinator, had not even
begun to tally information


Tuesday afternoon after arriv-
ing back-at her office from sur-
. \%eying both Lake Placid and
Highway Park, 'south of the
town.
There were a lot of people
homeless there, she said.
Several are still in FEMA trail-
ers and have to be out by Feb.
15.
The coalition is surveying
Highlands, DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry and
Okeechobee counties. So far,
the coalition has surveyed
DeSoto and Hardee counties,
where people lost 80 percent of
their housing stock to hurri-
canes, Phillippi said.
Highlands County lost about
. 20 percent of its housing stock,
so Phillippi expects local home-
less rates to be lower than in the
western counties.

Palmer and Wright


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
, AVON PARK Logan Palmer and
Jerry Lee Wright, both freshman at Avon
Park High School and graduates of Avon
Park Middle School, won their competi-
tions at the recent FFA district competi-
tion. That means both will advance to
the state competition to be held in
Orlando in June,
Palmer competed against two other
FFA students in the category of Creed
Speaking. The creed speaking competi-
tion is only open to ninth-grade students.
The FFA creed is a detailed five-para-
graph statement of its beliefs. The open-
ing sentence reads: 'I believe in the
future of farming, with a faith born not
of words but deeds achievements
won by the present and past generations
of agriculturists; in the promise of better
days through better ways, even as the
better things we now enjoy have to come
to us from the struggles of former;
years."
Students have to be letter perfect, and
include the punctuation in their recita-
tion. Competition is so fierce that getting'
any part of the recitation wrong is
enough to knock a student out of con-
tention.
Generally, students sail through that
portion of the event. Where the competi-
tion is won or lost, is during the ques-
tioning by the judges that follows.
For instance, based on the sentence
quoted earlier, a judge asked Palmer to
give an example of something that is
better today because of struggles in the
past.
Palmer spoke to the improvement in
soil cultivation brought about by
Thomas Jefferson's invention of the
plow.
She was asked two other questions as
well, but now can't remember exactly
what they were. "You're in such an
adrenaline rush, the answer just spits
out," she said with a rueful smile.
This is Palmer's second year in FFA.
She joined in the eighth grade when
Avon Park Middle School reinstated the
-.i ,:i W .m. which had gone Ji. I lViii .
Her then FFA advisor, Kellie Duke,


NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


- no that isn't a law firm


Fellow classmates Logan Palmer and Jerry Lee Wright perform well at the recent dis-
trict FFA.competitioni.


knew then Palmer would do well this
year.
As an eighth-grader, Palmer had gone
to compete in creed speaking at a local
competition, only to discover the ninth-
grade-only rule. The judges at that com-
petition had allow ed hei toi paricip.ite in
the Lo ieL. \ il[it the Lindci:,nt iiding she
could not '. in o'i plaice.


; As it turned out, she was told that had
she been eligible, she would have won.
Wright is also in his second year as an
FFA member. He competed in the
extemporaneous speech competition.
Students have to blindly select three
topics from 10 possible From the three,
the3 theli selectC ith oneo topic about
l.hilch they all speak;


All the topics are typed on white
paper, which are presented face down on
a table. But the print shows as shadow
through the paper.
This is important because Wright has
devised a system, whereby he picks a
paper with a lot of shadow print, the one
with the least amount of shadow print,
and one in the middle.
He figures this gives him the broadest
chance of hitting a doable topic.
If one of the topics has to do with the
FFA itself, that is the one he automati-
cally picks regardless of how complicat-
ed or lengthy the question. That is
because he knows the FFA and its struc-
tures inside and out, but isn't as well
versed on general agriculture.
At the district competition he had to
speak for four to six minutes on what the
FFA could do to increase agricultural
education in urban areas, especially larg-
er cities.
Wright's main point was that by shin-
ing a light on the FFA and making it
alluring to students, the agricultural edu-
cation would come along automatically
as a student has to take an agriculture
class to qualify for FFA.
To make his point he took the judges
on an imaginary train ride with three
stops. Career Development Events ville,
Supervised Agricultural Experiences
valley, and the third stop (he thinks, his
adrenaline was flowing too) at the travel
museum.
He made his points in five minutes
and 29 seconds.
He too was questioned by judges after
his presentation on its subject matter.
But he had so impressed them that one
judge simply said she was satisfied and
didn't even ask a question.
At the state' competition in Orlando,
Palmer and Wright will compete against
11 other students. Winners' at the state
level will go on to the national competi-
tion.
Reporter's note: Students from Sebring
High School will also be going to the
state competition in O ,la'o,'. Those stu-
dents, and their'events, il/l l~ ,iigliglIn-

Veterans have process to go through for clinic

Rotary Legends Challenge


By JOSEPH DIONNE
Special to the News-Sun
The Veterans Administration
Health Care System is, to say
the least, immense. VA hospi-
tals and clinics exist all across
the United States of America,
delivering health care to our
hundreds of thousands of veter-
ans. "
Here, in Highlands County,
residents are fortunate to have a
VA Outpatient Clinic. This is a
unique facility.
Managed by Bay Pines VA
Medical Center and operated by
CR Associates (a medical serv-
ices provider), the clinic is a
"contracted" facility.
Unlike the facilities operated
directly by the VA, veterans do
not have the same liberty to use
the Sebring VA Clinic, as they
have at VA-operated medical


facilities.
Due to the fact that the
Sebring VA Clinic is a "con-
tracted" facility, it can serve
only the veterans who have
been assigned to the clinic as
their "primary care facility."
There is a cap on how many
patients the clinic can serve and
at this time there is a waiting
list of veterans desiring to have
this clinic as their primary care
facility.
Once a veteran applies for
assignment to the Sebring clinic
and has been accepted, it may
take from three to four months
to become a patient. Eligible
veterans can still get medical
services while they are waiting
to become a Sebring VA Clinic
patient by simply making appli-
cation for enrollment at Bay
Pines VA Hospital. During the


period the veteran is .on the
waiting list, he/she can still
receive services from Bay Pines
VA Medical Center.
Enrollment to the Sebring
VA Outpatient Clinic is done
through the Bay Pines VA
Medical Center. A veteran who
has not previously enrolled in
the VA health system, or who is
transferring from another facili-
ty, may do so by submitting an
application form VA 10-10-EZ
and their DD214 or separa-
tion/discharged papers. The
form VA 10-10-EZ is available
at the Highlands County
Veteran Services Office, 7205


South George Blvd., Sebring;
telephone number 402-6623.
For more information or
details, you may call or visit the6
Veteran Services Office.
Health care is just one of the
many potential benefits avail-
able to the nation's veterans. If
you have served in the armed,
forces, or know someone who
did, you can also check on eli-
gibility for benefits and services
from the VA at www.va.gov or.
call (800) 827-1000.

draws celebrity announcer Country Fair student


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Over the
years the Noon Avon Park
Rotary Legends Challenge has
attracted several outstanding
celebrities.
The Legends Challenge is a
unique fund-raiser featuring
Legends race cars racing
around a high school football
field.
Because of its .racing status,
the event has drawn a list of
celebrities over the years. Past
individuals have included
Marvin Panch, 1961 winner of
the Daytona 500; Terry
Earwood, class winner at the
National Hot Rod Association
Nationals in Indianapolis, as
wells as the 12 Hours of
Sebring; plus the Indy Racing
League show car stopped one
year on the way to Homestead
Raceway.
This year the Legends
Challenge is excited to have the
Lowe's Motor Speedway
Promoter of the Year, Rusty
Marcus, in the announcing
booth. Marcus is the promoter
and general manager of
Florida's Orlando Speedworld.
In an era when many long-
time Florida short tracks are.
s.truiging to keep the gates
- open, Marcus has devised a for-
mula that attracts both fans and
competitors for two nights of
action-packed racing every
week from March through
November. The schedule at the
3/8th mile high-banked oval
features a variety of racing divi-
sions ranging from Sprint Cars
and Super Late Models to
Legends Cars, Bandoleros and
Mini Cups.
"One of the biggest chal-
lenges a short-track promoter
faces is competition for his
area's entertainment dollars.
So just imagine having your
race track in the theme park
capital of the world and having
to entice people to spend their

entertainment dollars at your
facility," said H.A. "Humpy"
Wheeler, president and general
manager of Lowe's Motor
Speedway. "But that's exactly
what Rusty Marcus has done at
Orlando Speedworld. His ded-
ication to running a tight, effi-.
cient program combined with
an emphasis on fan-friendly
admission prices and entertain-
ing special events, has made
Orlando Speedworld one of the,
most popular' tracks in the
Southeast.",
Marcus joins a "who's who"
of promoters as a recipient of
the LMS Promoter of the Year
Award. Former recipients
include Earl Baltes from Eldora
Raceway, Dick and Bob Bahre
from New Hampshire, Ned
Jarrett, Bill Donoho, Mickey
Swims and Frank Plessinger.
The Sixth Annual Avon Park
Noon Rotary Legends
Challenge is being held at the
Avon Park High School foot-
ball field on Saturday, Feb. 25.
Qualifying is at 6 p.m. with rac-
ing beginning at 7 p.m. .
This year's event features '15
races in three, divisions:
Bandoleros, Mini Cup, and
Legend, Tickei, are $7 ,in
advance with children under 9
free. Tickets are available at
Big T Tire, Bill Jarrett Ford,
Heartland National Bank and

Chocolate


findings
Today's column should
be titled "Confessions of a
Chocoholic." It seems the
older I get, the less I can
resist chocolate. That is not
a good thing for me
because it's an allergy I've
developed in direct propor-
tion to the amount of
chocolate I eat. I guess it's
appropriate the word ends
in "holic" because it is an
addiction that I seem unable
to control for any length of
time. I always have had
strange allergies, such as
cold temperatures making
me break out in hives and
bringing on adult asthma
attacks; smoke-induced
asthma; or, chocolate and
Coca-Cola making my fin-
gers break open. or a
pianist, open fissures on my
fingers are mighty painful,
let me tell you.
Last Saturday, my neigh-
bor, and I shared a table at a
community flea market.
She is a baker by trade and
loves to make people's
favorite cookies and candy.
She remarked to one of the
customers that chocolate in
Florida does not compare in
- taste to the chocolate from
the Midwest.
I grew up in a town that
has two candy manufactur-
ing companies: Heggy's
and London's. To learn
about them, go to www.heg
gys.com and www.london
candies.com/default.aspx,
the "intoxicating world of
chocolate." The 3
Musketeers has been my
favorite commercial candy
bar since I can remember. It
has a site,at www.3muske
teers.conm/index. shtml. In
visiting their Web site, I
learned that their bar has 45
percent less fat than other
chocolate bars. I knew there
was a reason I like them
best. Tootsie Roll pops
remind me of lazy days
spent on our pontoon boat
fishing for bluegills. It's
Web site is
www.tootsie.com. When I
looked at their Web site,
they also manufacture
Junior and Andes Mints,
Dubble Bubble gum, Sugar
Babies and Dots. Oh my!
You have heard of people
who have Mac attacks?
Make mine choc attacks
and I'm right with them. In
fact, have you tried Village
Inn's seasonal Truffle pie?
See it at www.villagein
nrestau
rants. cornm/our_restau
rants/piefeatures.html. It's
the only chocolate I've had
of which I can't eat more. I
believe I could eat a whole
French Silk Pie on my own,
however. They even have a
Frequent Pie-er Club.
Of course, the Mecca of
American chocolate is
Hershey, Pa. Its Web site is
www.hersheypa.com and
www.hersheysgifts.com.
Everything in the town
revolves around chocolate'
and its impact on our socie-
ty since its founding in
1894.
At www.worldwide
chocolate.com, you can find
the listing of world class
chocolate makers from
Venezuela, England,
Ecuador, Spain, Belgium,
Italy, Germany,
Switzerland, France and
American chocolate mak-
ers. Happy gnashing!

From Holland to Highlan




County in one generation
/ ...... vn ... era


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
VENUS
H ighlands Greenhouses Inc./Delray
Plants Inc. is one of the largest
production and shipping facilities
in the United States for more
than 50 varieties of mass-produced indoor
tropical foliage.
It is a selective commercial wholesale-
only business, distributing to big box
stores like The Home Depot, Wal-Mart
and Target. It is well known in the industry
for high-quality standards, ethical business
practices and an unbeatable reputation for
.progressive growth to meet market needs.
Jake Koornneef, 76, is the founder of
the parent company, Delray Plants Inc. He
came from the farm community of
Naaldwyk, Holland in the late 1950s.
Mary, his wife-to-be, emigrated from the
same area and joined him the next year.'
Originally they settled in Canada because
of sponsorship. At the same time, Randy
Gilde's parents left Dordreck, Holland, (an
area known for business and industry) and
settled in Utah. Because religion was
important to both families, they .all migrat-
ed to Palm Beach County for its Dutch
Reformed Church. There in 1969 the
Koornneef family started the business on
14 acres in Delray Beach.
Randy Gilde, 46, is the vice president,
and general manager of Highlands
Greenhouses Inc., in charge of sales and
production. He first met Jake's and Mary's
daughter Marian in sixth grade. They were
high school sweethearts and have been
married 27 years.
Jake's son, Ed Koornneef, 48, is presi-
dent, in charge of technology and con-
struction, layout and production. Together,
he and Gilde are partners in Highlands
Greenhouses Inc.
"Ed is quiet and not a public person.
But he's the brain in the family. He han-
dles all the technology. He linked us up
with Home Depot and Wal-Mart by com-
puter. He designs and manufactures specif-
ic equipment whenever needed. Although
not an engineer, he created our shine
machine (to clean the plants.) He sees a
need and perfects it. Our competitors
would love to have us build one for them.
Even the carts driven around here are
designed by Ed. I've seen himn take a
motor of a semi truck completely apart,
then rebuild it and put it back together. I
respect and admire him," Randy Gilde
said.
First-generation Americans, both Randy
and Ed joined the company early in the
growing years, both,bringing different
skills. They were instrumental in the
growth of the business and presently co-

manage the state-of-the-art location in
Venus.'Recently they opened a new
12,000-square-foot office at this facility
where 275 people are employed. Both
Randy and Ed each have four children,
and each have one son active in the busi-
ness. The others are in college, married or
have moved.
The recent hurricanes wiped out much
of the business in Delray Beach.
"We've actually been moving to
Highlands County for eight years. And it
will take us a few more years to complete
this transition. At present we only have
two of those eight original locations in
Palm Beach County. We are glad to be in
Highlands County because it is farmer
friendly. The eight various locations on the
coast were too difficult to manage. We
looked for three years for this one location
that would sustain everything. Now we
have 850 acres here with plenty of room
for growth," Randy Gilde said.
Both families arrived on these shores
for the opportunities that were offered.
They brought with them only their hopes
for the future. Highlands Greenhouses
Inc./Delray Plants Inc., and their children
and grandchildren are their expression of
the American dream.

Definii

In the book of Acts chapter
21:10-13 we read of an incident
in the Apostle Paul's life.
"After we had been there a
number of days, a parophet
named Agabus came down
from Judea. Coming over to us,
he took Paul's belt, tied hig own
hands and feet with it and said,
'The Holy Spirit says, in this,
way the Jews of Jerusalem will
bind the owner of the belt and
will hand him over to the
Gentiles.' When we heard this,
we and the people there pleaded
with Paul not to go to
Jerusalem. Then Paul answered,
'Why are you weeping and
breaking my 'heart? I am'
ready.'"
Having just ended another
year, we are brought to the real-
ization that time passes quickly.
We have been blessed with
another year of God's grace, but
whether we will still be here
when this one ends we do not
know. That is why it is impor-
tant to be prepared.
The Apostle Paul says, "I am
ready." He and those with him
knew that if he -went to
Jerusalem he might be put to
death at the bands of the Jews.
But that would not stop him
from continuing to do the work


ig 'b

the Lord had set
before him. He knew
that one day death
would end his work
in this world. He
knew that like all
people, he too would
die. But this thought
did not fill him with
fear for he knew that
even in death he
would live live
with his Savior in the

WITH


heavenly kingdom. Rev. R
We are often asked F
if we are ready. If -
you are like me,
many times we have to say, "no
we are not." But Paul was not
speaking of the events of every-
day life when he said, "I am
ready.' He was speaking of that
special time when he would
join his Savior, Jesus Christ and
meet Him face to face.
Not long ago I had occasion
to be with one of my members
in the final days of her life. I
will never forget that final day
when we visited and shared the
comforting words of our Savior.
Even in that hour she had the
peace that surpasses all under-
standing because 'she believed
in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Having shared the Word of God


i
If


ig truly

I we prayed for God's'
mercy. As I was about
to leave she looked at
and and said, "I am
ready." I knew what
S' J she meant. She meant
the same as Paul did
when he said, "I am
ready."
Why could Paul, or
MENT or anyone say, "I am
GOD ready?" We might
think that if anyone
chard would be ready it was
Te Paul. After all, he had
_ been called by Jesus
Himself to carry
God's message to the Gentiles.
But we must remember, Paul
was not always this great voice
proclaiming the good news of
salvation in Jesus Christ. He
was a sinner just as this young
lady, you and me. He deserved
God's wrath and punishment as
well as we do. He himself said,
"All have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God." The sim-
ple answer is Jesus Christ.
We can be ready because
God has called us to faith in His
Son Jesus Christ who is the
atoning sacrifice for all our
sins. Jesus suffered and died on
the cross so that we might have
the forgiveness of our sins and


ready'

eternal life. Paul knew that and
proclaimed it in his teaching.
As this young lady and I
shared the words of Scripture,
she too remembered what she
had learned in her childhood,
and what you and I need to be
reminded of constantly. God
does not call us to condemn us
but to offer us His grace
through faith in Jesus Christ.
When we believe and trust in
Jesus our Savior we can say
with Paul and this young lady
and all those who have gone
before us believing in Jesus, "I
am ready!"
It is through faith in Jesus
Christ and Him only, that we
can be truly ready. Paul said,
"Believe in the Lord Jesus
Christ and you will be saved."
And Jesus tells us all "For God
so loved the world, that He sent
his one and only Son, that who-
ever believes in Him shall not
perish but have eternal life."
Amen

plants indoors is much less than
that of plants grown in a green-
house. Also, rapid new growth
is often undesirable, as plants
may outgrow their locations.
Interior plants under active
growing conditions should be
fertilized every two to three
months. During winter months,
or under conditions of low light,
the frequency of fertilization
should be reduced.
The container must be large
enough to provide space for
root growth for at least one
year. If the container is too. large
the nutrients are leached from

may remain, too wet.
Clay pots are porous and
allow water to evaporate
through the sides and, therefore,
require more frequent watering
than plastic, glass, metal, wood
or glazed pots. For that reason,
most amateurs who have a ten-
dency to over water are usually
more successful with clay pots.
Containers without drainage
holes should have a layer of
coarse gravel placed in the bot-
tom to allow -a space for excess
water. Another method of using
containers without drainage is
the "double-potting" technique.

He taught at Grace
Theological Seminary in
Winona Lake, Ind., from
1951-1990 and gained much
recognition for his work on
"The Genesis Flood," which
he co-authored with Dr. Henry
Morris in 1961. This book has
been credited as one of the
major catalysts for the modem
biblical creationism move-
ment.
Whitcomb and his wife
maintain an active schedule of
ministry, speaking in churches,
Bible colleges and seminaries
across the United States.
Everyone is welcome. The
church is located in Maranatha

Some common symptoms
and causes:
1., Brown leaf tips or burned
margins may be caused by too
much fertilizer or soil allowed
to dry excessively.,
2. Yellowing and dropping of
leaves are caused by air pollu-
tion, low light intensity, chill-
ing, over-watering or poor soil
drainage and aeration, or root
decay from soil-borne diseases

3. Weak growth or light
green or yellow foliage is
caused by too intense light, lack
of fertilizer, root-rot or poor
root system.
4. Small leaves and long
internodes indicate too little
light. i
5. Small leaves and short
intemrdes may be caused by
lack of fertilizer or being grown
too dry.'
6. Small new, leaves and'
leaves curl under regular type,
may indicate too much light. '
Right now indoor tropical
plants are prevalent in the mar-
ket. Whether you choose a

mitted individuals."
The church offers this beau-
tiful ceremony to those who
desire to recommit to the
sacred bond that unites them.

nity to reflect on the love of
God for them.

Much thanks to Kindness is one


heart group
Editor:
An open letter to the Florida
Heart Group office manager
and staff,
Thank you for being a serv-
ice that is "senior friendly." I
recently had procedures there
and can tell -you what wonder-
ful individual care the staff
gives.
.The management seems to
be geared to not stereotyping
their clients and very willing to
work with clients and care-
givers to deliver the best care
possible for all concerned.
Friendly, professional staff
gave clear instructions and
assisted in every avenue of care
with all procedures.
The team of Jan, Cheri and
Jackie was outstanding in the
above, traits and I cannot thank
them enough. I am sure other
teams are good too but I feel so
fortunate to have had such
excellent care and feel this
needs to be known to you as
management and to the com-
munity.

Editor:
To the group at Florida
Hospital in the Cardiac
Catheterization Department: In
my book, they are one in a mil-
lion in kindness and caring for
their patients. One little nurse
got tme something to 'eat after
the catheterization and also
some for my wife too. I thank
Dr. Torres for his services too.
II have heard complaints on
Florida Hospital but I do not
have any. They are just doing
their jobs.
I heard that they give stars
for their good works. I think
that they all are entitled to
many for what they did for me.
They gave me something for
my back while they were doing
the catheterization that killed
the back pain, which was a
pleasure to not have.
Again, my greatest thanks to
them all. I recommend them all
very highly.

Our banner


I walk our small -
dog Scruffy each
morning, but just
prior to that, I carry
our American flag
outside and raise it to
the top of a pole that .
is located in front of
our house. Well, not
every morning; I
don't do that -if we LO
have inclement
weather. NOT
But while I'm in
the midst of doing LouM
that, I sometimes get
to thinking about the
area where history tells us of
our Star Spangled Banner. An
area close to where my wife
Dottie was born and raised. It is
the small town of Glen Burnie,
where we lived for the first 10
years of our married lives.
Glen Burnie is just eight
miles in a straight line, due
southwest of Fort McHenry, the
birthplace of our American
national anthem and the
guardian place of Baltimore's
harbor during the War of 1812;
a war stemming from com-
plaints of wrong doings by the
British Navy. They had been
blocking French ports. and
boarding United States ships
with the ruse of looking for
their Navy deserters and, of
course, cargo. Cargo suspected
of being sent to France ...


Britain's devout
,enemy at the time.
Congress passed
an Embargo Act in
'"J. 1807, which called
for the expulsion of
the British from
Canada to ensure the
frontier security at
our northern border.
U' S When the British
government refused,
BOOK we declared war.
- That was on June 12,
ingacci 1812.
Despite our many
early victories during
that conflict, Britain maintained
its blockade of all our eastern
ports and damaged many east
coast cities, including the burn-
ing of our capitol in
Washington, D.C., and the
White House itself.
Meanwhile at Fort McHenry,
defensive measures were being
made to protect that fort and, of
course, Baltimore. Artillery and
sailing ships were brought in. A
total of 1,120 men were pre-
pared to defend Baltimore from
intruders coming up and
through the Chesapeake Bay.
Major General Armistead
was the commander of the fort
and had a flag pole installed
that was 89 feet tall, above the
ground. Why that tall? He
wanted to hoist a flag -that

Alito should be

confirmed
Editor:
I'm writing to say that the
Senate should vote -"Yes" on
Judge Samuel Alito for the U.S.
Supreme Court.
Congressional Democrats
are using the Alito nomination
. as a political ploy for their
2006 election strategy.
Editorials in numerous liberal
papers from across the country,
including The Washington
Post, The New York Daily
News, and The Los Angeles
Times have endorsed Judge
Alito, saying he should be con-
firmed by the United States
Senate. The American Bar
Association, often criticized as
having a liberal bias, gave
Judge Alito a "well-qualified"
rating the highest rating one
can receive from the organiza-
tion.
Despite this support only one
Democrat, Ben Nelson from
Nebraska, has said he will vote
for Judge Alito.

Objections to

subsidies

Editor: -
Six reasons that I object to
government welfare and subsi-
dies.
1. The government has a his-
tory of providing mediocre,
service, so why do we continue
to force government to take on
more duties when the private
sector can do much better.
2. There is a continued battle
over the separation of church
and state. Compassion is the
bailiwick of religions. Why
does the .government speak out
of both sides of its mouth? On
one side they want to disassoci-
ate themselves from religion
and on the other side they want
to hijack religion's principles.
3. Democracy vs Republic. I
have noticed that the evolution
of our government has mor-
phed the democracy and repub-
lic together. I don't know who
started- it. Was it the despots
who used the promise of a free
lunch to buy votes or was it.the
citizens who demanded the
politician to provide a free
lunch for their vote. I guess it
makes no difference, the out-
come is the same.
The citizens will vote them-
selves money from the treasure


Box office sales have proven
once again that movies with
solid, moral values are desir-
able. "The Lion, the Witch, and
the Wardrobe" from C.S.
Lewis, "The Chronicles of
Narnia" continues to draw large
crowds.
Though other versions have
been made, this big-screen cre-
ation has drawn us into Narnia
with new fascination. Before its
debut, radio interviews and
commentaries encouraged me
to discover Narnia for myself
by not looking for the symbol-
ism' rather asking if I was one
of the characters, which one
would I be? And, with that in
mind, I entered Narnia.
Though an allegory and fan-
tasy, the story unfolded in the
realism of history:
World War II and the bomb-
ing of London.
This frightful time had neces-
sitated the transporting of chil-
dren from the city to the coun-
tryside. Mothers sacrificially
placed their children on trains
tagged so that they would
not get lost and sent them
into an unknown they hoped
would be safer than the danger-
ous city under siege.
From the start, the viewer
was introduced to sullen


Though captivated by the
scenery and wonder of this
. spectacular place, I was quickly'
drawn into the plight of
Narnia's inhabitants. Only the
sacrifice of a descendent of Eve
could break the perpetual win-
ter curse.
Edmund, in his selfish,
resentful spirit, fell victim to
the temptation of the witch and
betrayed his brother and sisters
as well as all of Narnia's citi-
zens. Aslan, the Lion, was the
only hope for Namia and word
had it that he was coming.
When he did, he sacrificed
himself in place of Edmund and
died; only to come back to life.
By his authority he entrusted
Narnia to their care for the time
he would be gone before return-
ing again. .
The symbolism isn't lost on
one who is familiar with the
salvation account of Jesus
Christ in the Bible, "... the Lion
of the Tribe of Judah ... -
who came to our world, died a
sacrificial, substitutionary death
for the sin of mankind; rose tri-
umphantly from the. dead;
authoritatively entrusted the
gospel message to his follow-
ers; ascended to heaven; and,
will return again.
Yet, in wondering which of


the characters I would be, my
perspective broadened to which
character traits I possessed in
my own world, my "Narnia."
Am I like Edmund who sees
his wrong, repents and becomes
honorable; Peter wvho responsi-
bly rises to the occasion and
sees what Aslan sees in him;
over-protective Susan who
develops a truly caring heart;
or, bold-spirited, believing
Lucy who puts all of Narnia
before herself?
Which one pleased Aslan
most?
According to the new, dis-
tinctive names with which he
crowned them, each had a spe-
cial place in his heart; Edmund,
"The Just;" Peter, "The
Magnificent;" Susan, "The
Gentle;" Lucy, "The Valiant."
We each have a purpose.
We'd do well to emulate these
characteristics in our own
"Narnia."

4. We may not want to admit
it, but we are all greedy and we
are all tightwads. It all depends
on where we stand and what
the time,
When we go to work we are
a producer and we are greedy,
and when we go to the store we
are consumers and are tight-
wads. This is what makes the
competitive free enterprise sys-
tem work. That is until the gov-
ernment interferes.
.If the producers decide to
raise prices then the tightwads
will refuse to buy. When the
producer loses business' they
moan to the government to pro-
vide subsidies or welfare so
that their greed will be satis-
fied. The producers on the
other hand should not be
rewarded (unemployment com-
pensation, housing subsidies,
farm subsidies, food stamps,
etc.) for not playing the com-
petitive market place game by
the rules.
5. Another unintended con-
sequence is the break down of
the family and 'is fostered by
the National Organization of
Women. The present day think-
ing is that the female can do
just fine without the male, but
the statistics prove otherwise.
Before we were civilized the
only thing offspring had to
learn was how to get their food
and to protect themselves. As


civilization progressed, the off-
spring had to learn-more and
more. This learning did not
negate the animal instinct, only
to subdue it.
I don't think that civilization
has advanced far enough to
eliminate our animal instincts.
Therefore it still takes a lot of
learning (such a big task that it
takes two parents) to subdue
the animal behavior. Just scan
the newspaper and listen to the
news to see that animal behav-
ior is still with us.

United States Constitution

inition of money. "Stamped

medium of exchange then we
can substitute the word money
in place of property. Therefore
we .can substitute money for
property in, "nor be deprived of
life, liberty, or money, without
due process of law; nor shall
private money (taxes) be taken
for public use, without just
compensation."
Another word that needs to'
be defined is compensation. "1,

Suggested

readings

Editor:
To the people who write
political diatribes to this news-
paper, I would suggest that you
read several documents and
books prior to your venting.
First of all, I suggest that you
read The Constitution of the
United States then move on to
The Federalist Papers (these
were a series of letters written
to newspapers in October 1787
by Alexander Hamilton, John
Jay and James Madison to'
inform the new citizens of this
country what their new consti-
tution said and what the writers
meant by it and how it was to
be interpreted).
The next book should be "A
History of the Arab Peoples"
by Albert Hourani, then "Paris
1919" by Margaret MacMillan
(subtitle Six Months That
Changed the World) this
book explains how the world
got into the situation it is in
today, due to the actions of
Woodrow Wilson of the United
States, David Lord George of
Great Britain, Georges
Clemenceau of France and
Vittorio Orlando of Italy in
dividing up the world and set-
ting new boundaries after
World War I).
Finally, two or three books
of a more recent time, the
"Biography of Paul Joseph
Goebbles" by Ralf Georg
Reuth and either or both "The
Rise and Fall of the Third

REFLECTIONS

Edmund; responsible, yet, not
always confident, Peter; moth--
er-hen Susan; and, wide-eyed,
believing Lucy whose childlike
faith would continually be chal-
lenged by her siblings.
This historical backdrop sets
the stage for "an adventure like
nothing the children could have
imagined. Under the .domineer--
ing oversight ,of the housekeep-
er in the prestigious manor
house of a single ,professor, the
children tried to amuse them-
selves.
While playing a game of hide
and seek, Lucy hid in an old
wardrobe and discovered

covered her as such a place

would be seen from a great dis-
tance. Mounting his horse and
,accompanied by a column of
troops, he traveled to Baltimore
.where he met with a flag maker
by the name. of Mary
Pickersgill.
I After explaining what type
-and size flag he wanted, he
-commissioned her to construct
.one to his dimensions. "This
,flag," he told her, "will be so
large, that the British will have
,no difficulty in seeing it from a
,distance."
During that time, there were
,15 states in the Union. To the
original 12 states, Vermont and
Kentucky had been added. The
plan was to have a new star and
a new stripe for each new state.
With the help of her 13-year-
old daughter Caroline, Mary
Pickersgill constructed that
flag. When laid out, it measured
42 feet long and 30 feet high. It
had 15 stars and 15 stripes, each
measuring two feet in width.
After taking it to the fort, she
displayed it to Major
Armistead. He was so happy
when she arrived with it, that he
called all his troops proudly to
attention and had it raised to the
top of the pole, even before he
happily paid her the $405.90 he
had promised. It was a beautiful
sight to behold from all the
waterfronts edging the
Chesapeake Bay.

year-old American lawyer by
the name of Francis Scott Key
who had practiced his trade in
Georgetown, Md., by the
Potomac River. He had been
sent to board the British
Flagship Tonnant, where an'
American doctor by the name
of William Beanes was being
held. Key would try and secure
his release.
Dr. Beanes had been cap-
tured by the British ship after
they captured Washington,
D.C., and burned the White
House. By the way, thankful it
was, a severe thunderstorm had
been raging that kept the fire
from spreading.
i Although he was successful
in his venture, Key and the doc-
tor could not yet leave the ship.
The "flag of truce", ship they
needed to travel back to shore
with was anchored eight miles
downstream from the fort. Not
only that, but the British would
not release them yet because
they had heard too much while
on board about the plans for
attacking Baltimore.
Francis Scott Key, a very
smart individual by the way,
was born on the family estate of
"Terra Rubra" in Frederick
County, Md. He was a poet and
a lawyer.
He attended grammar school
and later graduated from St.
John's College at.... would you
believe the age of 17?
On Sept. 13, 1814, at precise-
ly 7 a.m., shells left the British
ship heading for Fort McHenry
... bombardment that lasted
mostly 25 hours. Shells weigh-
ing more than 200 pounds with
lighted fuses so designed to
explode upon reaching above
the target. More than 1,500
shells were fired during the day
and night. On top of that, there
were small boats on the bay fir-
ing' newly manufactured rock-
ets that sent wobbly traced arcs
: of red flame across the sky.
On the American side, the
artillery units had sunk 22 ves-
sels, so a close approach was
not possible. The British can-
nonade did stop for awhile in
the late evening and when it
resumed, it lit the rainy sky like
it was daylight.
Meanwhile, Francis Scott
Key ind Di. Bc.,rinc \,titched
the buile. knowing h.ai since
the shelling continued, Fort
McHenry had. not given up as
surrendered.


With the coming of daylight,
came an unexplained silence,
one that Key or Beanes could
not fathom. What they did not
know, was that the attack by the
British had been abandoned.
The British officers had ordered
a retreat. As he waited in the
predawn of darkness, Key wait-
ed anxiously for the sight of
Armistead's flag, hoping to see
it blowing in the breeze.
When finally, daylight came
... slowly. In the distance, 'he
could see an image of some-
thing waving in the air, not sure
of what it was at first. Then the
sun's early light shone upon
Old Glory.
Being so poetically inspired,
Key began to write on the back
of a letter he had in his pocket.
On the boat back to Baltimore,
he composed more lines. Then,
in his room at the Indian Hotel,
he completed the poem.
The original title of his poem
was "Defense of Fort
McHenry." It was printed for
the first time in a local newspa-
per called the Baltimore Patriot
on Sept. 14, 1814, and also in
newspapers as far away as
Georgia and New Hampshire.
The words were adapted to
an English drinking song called
"To Anacreon in Heaven." In
October of that same year, an
actor sang the song and called it
"The Star Spangled Banner"
and it immediately became very
popular throughout the country.
Then on March 3, 1931, it was
finally adopted as our national
anthem.
We think about it a lot ...
Dottie and I. In a few months
we will be celebrating our 60th
wedding anniversary and can
remember when we spent many
daylight and totally darkened
hours in a small boat on the
Chesapeake Bay, while hauling
in bushels and bushels of Blue
Channel crabs.
I could continue on and tell a
lot about that ... but that's
another story.

the county, specifi-
cally those on U.S.
27.
Much has been said about the
timing of these devices. Like
anything else that has to do with
a governmental agency there
are strict guidelines on every
facet of a traffic control device.
The bible for our traffic opera-
tions personnel is the Manuel
on Uniform Traffic Control
Devices (MUTCD). No traffic
control device can be erected,
placed or put into service with-
out following the very specific
instructions of this manual.
You can find this manual on the
Web at http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.
gov/pdfs/2003rl/pdf-index.htm.
There is also a Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) manual, Design
Standards for Roadways and
Bridges, that is used to compli-
ment the MUTCD.
Just reading these books is a
lesson in patience and under-
standing. There is no doubt in
my mind that a group of traffic
engineers put this together and
they speak a language of their
own (like .so many specialty
career fields), but I have lost the
context of this article.
Every traffic signal device is
put in place by very specific
instructions, and this also
applies to the timing of these
devices.- There are several fac-
tors that go into just the timing
aspect of each individual traffic
control device. Some of the fac-
tors that they take into consider-
ation are; geometry of the indi-
vidual traffic intersection (lay-
out of the land), road size, level
of use, speed limit, and past
traffic crash data. Once all of,
these (and other) considerations
have been taken into account
then the FDOT provides our
local traffic operations person-
nel with the required informa-
tion. The timing for each traffic
signal is then entered into the
individual computer that con-
trols that signal.
t On average, the general time
setting for the 'traffic control
devices on U.S. 27 is going
from green to yellow, you will
have a yellow light for 4.5 sec-
onds. The light will then change


.


HOTLIE to red for the entire
nTLIN intersection for
Fane approximately two
P. Fane seconds to allow
for all traffic to
clear the intersec-
tion. The side traffic will then
have its green light and the
process, will start over.
There are four factors that
need to be considered to proper-
ly calculate stopping distances
- human perception time,
human reaction time, vehicle
reaction time and vehicle brak-
ing capability. A vehicle travel-
ing at 60 mph covers 88 feet per
second, but stopping that vehi-
cle takes more than 4.5 seconds
and covers a distance of 271
feet. Why? Because there's
more involved in braking than-
the actual time your brakes are
applied to the wheels (called
"effective braking"). In particu-
lar, "perception time" and
"reaction time" add consider-
able distance to stopping your
car.
'Perception time is the three-
quarters of a second it takes for
N ou to realize that you need to
brake. Reaction .time is the
three-quarters of a second it
takes to move your foot to the
brake pedal. When you com-
bine perception and reaction
time, a fulL132 feet will pass
before your car even begins to
slow down -from 60 mph. So
from the time you perceive a
braking situation, until the time
your.car comes to a complete
stop, \a total of 4.6 seconds
elapses. During that time, your
car travels a total of more than
270 feet., That's almost the
length of a football field. Of
course, the faster you go, the
more time and distance it takes
to stop. '
There are other factors as
well, such as road conditions.
When weather- is, bad, your
braking distance grows expo-

nentially. On wet pavement,
total braking time increases
from 4.6 seconds to 6.1 sec-
onds, and total braking distance
-shoots up from 271 feet to 333
feet. And it gets worse.
Keep in mind that while trav-
eling at 60 mph, you can cover
396 feet. You then either have
enough time to stop, or cross
under the light with the yellow
still showing. I have spent
many a hour on. U.S. 27 and
have witnessed first hand that
when drivers see a law enforce-
ment vehicle they suddenly
possess-the skills necessary to
stop for traffic lights. That leads
me to the conclusion that some-
times people just aren't paying
attention like they should.
Even with the built-in time
delay between the red light and
the green light, I would strong-
ly recommend that you look"
both ways before you proceed
through the intersection. Once
you get on the .highway,
remember to keep your distance
from the vehicle in front of you.
The new rule of thumb is to
have a two-second delay
between you and the vehicle in
front of you. That means that
once the vehicle in front of you'
passes an object, two seconds
should pass before you pass the
very same object. I have heard
some experts are now attempt-
ing to increase that time frame
to-three seconds.
While you are at it and you
are trying to drive 'defensively,
remember to drive with your
head lights on even during the
day. This will increase the
amount of time that someone
else can see you and react to
your presence. Just remember
driving should not be a trauma-
tizing experience.
Take your time, drive defen-
sively and -let us all enjoy the
time that we have here in beau-
tiful Highlands County.

Bartow stops Lady Streaks in


first round of Class 4A playoffs


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun correspondent
BARTOW It took a while for Bartow to
find the net for the first time, but the home team
soon heated up the chilly night with two more
first-half goals and the Sebring Lady Blue
Streaks were never able to rebound in a 3-0 loss
in Thursday's Class 4A regional quarterfinal at
Bartow Memorial Stadium.
Senior forward Kara Rutinbar scored on a 30-
yard direct kick during the 19th minute to give
the Yellow Jackets the only score they would
need. Bartow continued to pressure Sebring's
goal, but goalkeeper Rebecca Secory kept mak-
ing one diving save after another to keep the
Streaks in the game, at least for a while.
At halftime, Sebring coach Kate Miller told
her players they needed to start running through
the ball or it was going to be more of the same in
the second half. The Lady Streaks responded and
kept the game scoreless in the final 40 minutes,
and Miller said she was proud of her team's effort
in the second half.


"The damage was done in the first half," she
said. "Wetried to make a valiant comeback in the
second half, but Bartow is very talented ... Wow,
what can I say? We know we've got to pick up
theintensity level to compete. Great attitude out
of the girls and they enjoyed the second half."
Bartow (16-6-3), which outshot Sebring 17-1

in the match, held its 1-0 lead until
senior midfielder Jessica Langston
scored an unassisted goal during
the 29th minute to make it 2-0, and
less than a minute later midfielder
Sarah Nikdel. scored on an
untouched corner kick that curved
into the net for the three-goal lead.


Sebring (14-5-1) came back strong inthe sec-
ond half, immediately putting pressure on the
Yellow Jackets' goal. Lady Blue 'Streak .sopho-
more standout Samantha Mitchell boomed a cor-
ner kick in the 42nd minute and .senior Catalina
Diaz headed the ball, but Sebring's only shot on
goal went right into the arms of Bartow goalie
Marian Maloney to keep the Streaks scoreless.

Sebring sophomore Samantha Mitchell had:24 goals on the season,
but couldn't add to that total Thursday in Bartow.

Dwayne
Bailey


Baseball team has


plenty of holes to fill


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK "We need
more hours in the day."
That was the first thing out
of South Florida Community
College baseball coach Rick
Hitt's mouth when asked about
his 2006 team, and it's no
wonder when one looks at the
roster.
With the exception of
Dwayne Bailey at
shortstop, the Panthers
will be replacing a
two-year starter at
'every other position on
the field in addition
to the entire .starting
pitching rotation A W
from last season's 33- HITT
23-1 playoff team.
"That kind of makes us
brand new in a lot of ways,"
Hitt said. "That's what it's all
about, really. That's the per-
sona of community college
athletics. You get them where
you want them and then they
go somewhere else."
The Panthers, who open the
season at home on Saturday
with a noon doubleheader
against Florida College, do
have some experienced play-
ers back, most nootably


Sebring's Trey Cleveland, who
had several starts and came on
strong at the end of the season.
to finish with a .393 batting
average.
Catchers Josh Welkes .and
Charles Heston also saw a lot
of playing time last year, but
the Panthers are still an inex-
perienced team almost from
top to bottom.
"Some of them have a year
under their belt, but I
would still consider
them to not untested in'
game situations across
the board," Hitt said.
In addition to having
to find basically a
whole new defense and
battling lineup, SFCC
must also build a new
pitching rotation after losing
superstar Jesse Litsch along
with veteran starters Andy
Polk and Dusty McGee and
most of the other experienced
arms.
"Our two-year starting rota-
tion is gone plus two guys who
had 16 wins between them out
of the bullpen and our two-
year closer," Hitt said.
As of now, the starting rota-

Softball team hoping


to be faster, healthier


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor "
AVON PARK -.In their
first season ever, the South
Florida Community College
Lady Panthers were in the hunt
for a playoff spot until the last
week of the season despite
having a very limited pitching
rotation, if you can :call one
pitcher a rotation.
Needless to say, the
Panthers are hoping to
keep all the players -
particularly the ones
who throw the ball ,
healthy as the embark
on season No. 2
Saturday afternoon at
Brevard Community
College. FALLA,
Injuries and off-field
issues decimated the Panthers'
pitching staff last season, put-
ting' the entire workload in the
capable .hands of Christina
Morrow, who pitched virtually
every inning of the Panthers'
18-24 season and will be the
clear No. 1 starter this year.
"With everything she did
last year ;and everything she
did this fall and the way she
practices, she's definitely our
No. 1," SFCC coach Carlos
Falla said.


One of those pitchers who
was knocked out of last year is
lefty Mallory Drooger, who
had shoulder surgery and
missed the entire season.
"She's starting to get her
arm back into, playing shape,"
Falla said.
Rounding out the rotation
will be freshmen Kim Ward
and Anna Turvin. Falla said
Ward, a former Avon Park and
Hardee standout, is"
looking good. as she
gets ready for her col-
lege debut.
"She's starting to
really control her
movement and has her
r., pitches breaking a lot
better. Basically what
she needs is to be confi-
dent in what she's doing and
the people behind her."
Turvin is a right-hander
from Lake Region High
School. "She's a lot like
Christina in many respects -
location, movement and has
enough of a power pitch to
really break it in on you, too,"
Falla said.
Falla is hoping some more

SEBRING After a
close first half, the unde-
Freated and fourth-ranked
Lady Blue Streaks
outscored Mulberry 21-12
in the third quarter and went
on to win 60-49 Thursday
night, running their record
to 19-0 with one game left
in the regular season.
Shakinah Crumity led the
Lady Streaks with 19 points
eight rebounds and four

Mulberry coach Grady
Morrell found Sebring's

changed defenses and tried
a triangle-and-two. They

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Tuesday's
Sebring Seniors Softball
League game at DeSoto Field
resulted in a low-scoring, 8-6
win for the Silent Salesman
over the Buttonwood Bay
Rebels.
Three innings were played
before any runners crossed
home plate then the Rebs took a
4-3 lead. Over the remaining
four innings, the Salesman
outscored the Rebs 5-2 to gar-
ner the win.
Harley Smith's 4-for-5 day at
the plate paced the victors and
chipping in with three hits each
were Bob Flack, Syd Collins
and Max Glenn. Lynn Lypps
was the winning hurler.
Moose Morrisettee paced the
Rebs' offense with three hits
and contributing two hits each
were Jack Grosso, Elwood
Black, Stan Turl and Rollie
Carlson.
At Lake June Field,
Aluminum Discount rose to the
top of its game to defeat Miller
Central Air 21-17. The
Discounters altered their game
strategy by playing six infield-
ers, but even with ample out-
field hitting space, Millers
could not take advantage of the
defensive play. '
For the winners, Paul
Stevenson, Paul Reich, James
Gilbert and John Schmidt all
had three hits. For Millers, Don
Teague led the way with four
hits and Bob Fee, Rod Palmer,

"You're talking about replac-
ing guys in the rotation last
year-who had anywhere from
60 to 100 innings with guys
that had 10-20 innings," Hitt
said.
The good news is the
Panthers have 27 games to get
it together before the Southern
Conference schedule, which
has expanded from 20 to 25
games this season, begins on
March 3.
"It's a tale of two seasons.
We'll play a 27-game season
before we. start conference,"
Hitt said. "We'll learn an awful
lot. There's no question that we
will work hard that will
always be a characteristic of
teams at our school and I
know that each day we show up
we'll be prepared to play. The
rest will be about performance
from our players .and, adjust-
ments and approach to the daily
grind of college athletics.
"The ups-and-downs that
this game puts you through
mentally will all be part of the
growth process."
The Panthers will have. to.
grow a lot if they want to make
the playoffs for the' third
straight season, but Hitt said
this year's team is capable of
extending that streak.
"The postseason playoffs are
dictated by our conference
games and we've been fortu-
nate to be in the playoffs two
years in a row. We graduated a
bunch of guys who we felt did
an outstanding job while they
were here of helping us become
successful.
"We just make a note that
that's who we've lost, but trust
me when I tell you we're excit-
ed about this group and we
look forward to facing chal-
lenges with them."
Hitt said the Panthers have
plenty of guys that really love
to play, but they've got to learn
while they play.
"We've got a group of guys
that when they show up
focused and ready to go will be


able to meet a lot of the chal-,
lenges we have ahead," Hitt
said.
"Performance will tell the
tale, that's the bottom line."

lead to 48-34 at the end of three
quarters.
Bullock and Crumity com-
bined for eight of Sebring .12

Coach Sampson is hoping
that Chastity Godfrey, who has


an injured ankle, is healthy for
next week, when the Streaks
host the District 10-4A tourna-
ment. As top seed, Sebring
earned a first-round bye and
will be off until Thursday.
Sampson said he plans to use
the extra practice time to
improve the Lady Streaks'
defense.
"Our defense is our offense,"
he said. "We have got to get out
and run with the ball."
The Lady Streaks will host
Fort Meade tonight at 6 p.m. in
their quest to finish the regular
season undefeated

- can help energize an offense
that struggled at times last sea-
son.
"We're a lot more athletic,"
Falla said. "We've got kids
through our lineup that have
more pop and are able to able to
get around the bases quicker.
Athleticism is our biggest thing
this year.
"All these freshmen that
came in this year are going to
make us better. You'll see a dif-


ference. It's the way they play.
They play at a higher speed,
basically."
The goal this, season, besides
keeping people out of the train-
er's room, is to make the
Suncoast Conference playoffs.
"To get to the dance is a big
thing," Falla said. "We've.got a
lot of young kids, but the goal is
to get there. Everybody starts
even when you get to the post-
season, so the goal is just to get
there and do the best we can."
Of course, that's easier said
than done considering the
Suncoast is one of .the state's
toughest conferences and


includes Manatee, which fin-
ished second to eventual World
Series runner-up Indian River
in the state tourney last season.
"It's a. tough conference to
play out of," Falla said. "I
expect all of them to have got-
ten better, so it's going. to be a
struggle, it's going to be a
fight."
Falla said the Panthers will
have to play at their best to
make it to ,the postseason, but
they'll also need some help.
"If you're good, that will
take you so far, but you've got
to get, some balls to bounce
your way, too," he said.
