Embryonic stem cell research discussed


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Is embryonic stem cell
research fact or fiction?.
Facing the prospect of going to the
polls this year to vote on a state consti-
tutional amendment that would funnel
millions of tax dollars to fund stem cell
research, members of the St. Catherine's
'Catholic Church parish attended a lec-
ture Saturday given by Dr. Daniel J.
Pepin.
Pepin is a professor of anatomy and
ph. .siolo,\. at Edison College, Naples,
for part of the year and an instructor of
human biology at North Central
Michigan College duririg other parts of
the year.


Fire units

blazes
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Two, brush
fires Saturday serve as a warn-
ing that people need to be cau-
tious when they are outside and
using fire.
The Leisure Lakes Volunteer
Fire Department responded to a
grass fire at 1815 Lake
Josephine Road at around
12:30 p.m. That fire was fairly
quickly brought under control,
although it threatened buildings
during the early stages of the
blaze.
Not too far north, at 3201
Sparta Road, a second brush
fire broke out a little before 1
p.m. That fire began as three
smaller eruptions which ended
See FIRE. page 11A


"They have good intentions, perhaps
but they 're certainly' based on distor-
tion,' Pepiri said, citing celebrities who
have become "self-professed" expertson
embryonic stem cell research Ron
Reagan Jr., Nancy Reagan, Michael J.
Fox, Mary Tyler Moore and the late
Christopher Reeves.. "They would be
dead wrong on this issue."
The popularity of embryonic stem cell
research is fueled by a lack .of knowl-
edge, in part, and by ulterior motives,
Pepin said.
"We want to find cures for the myriad
of diseases we face but not at the sacri-
fice of human lives," Pepin said, noting
that many proponents downplay or
ignore the potential of adult stem cell


research or assign
embryonic stem cell
research a higher priori-
ty to study.
Pro-abortionists pro-
vide an undercurrent of
support of for embryon-
PEPIN ic stem cell research, he
said, because if public
support for destroying an embryo at five
to seven days (as is done to collect
embryonic stem cells) wanes, the logical
"next step" would be dwindling support
for abortions at later stages in life two
to three months to late-term.
"EmbrNonic stem cell research is very
controversial, second only to abortion,"
Pepin said, with PowerPoint slides of the


various stages of de elopment after con-
deption behind him. "'But it's not really
second, is it? It is abortion, because
that's what they have to do to get the
cells."
Pepin said conventional wisdom holds
that embryonic stem cells can develop
into any other kind of cell, thus their
popularity with cure-seeking activists.
The problem is when work with adult
stem cells is ignored often on the prem-
ise that they are limited in scope to what
kind of tissue they become.
Embrnonic stem cells =are touted for
being pluripotent, not fixed as to poten-
tial development, Pepin :aid.

SEBRING The hurricanes

There is a serious mold prob-
lem in the building now, and to
fix it, the district will have to
close its offices for a while.
From noon Thursday

building, a process that, will
cost the district $22,000 in
work.

that's only the beginning of the
work. The disinfecting crew
will have to tear out walls, cab-

chance to participate in, the Sun

information and debate work-
shops, those meetings will be
moving to Thursday nights.
Supervisor John Clark said'
workshops are great places, to
get input from the public, and it
would make monthly meetings
more efficient so supervisors
can focus on dismnct business.
Tentatively, supervisors will
hold -,orkshops at 7 p m. the
second Thursday of, each-,
month.,
Corridor held
Supervisors will hold onr
selecting Balboa Boulevard as a
preferred, route for a western
bypass from U.S. 27.
Supervisor Robert Severino
said there may be another route
that the county has selected as
part of its long-range trans-
portation plan.,


He wants to hold that deci-
sion until Curtis DeYoung,
chairman of the long-range
transportation committee has a
chance to speak to the board.
He was scheduled for the
.meeting on Friday, but was
unable to attend.
Looses members
Ron Wonderling with Kitson
& Partners LLC announced
Friday. that the Sun' 'N Lake
Golf Course has lost 73,mem-
bers.
It gained 27 memberships,
however, so total membership
is now down to 341.
Since the operation is pro-
jecting a shortfall, he said
Kitson & Partners will trim its
expenses to minimize the loss.
Several residents of the dis-
trict who attended Friday's
board of supervisors meeting,
asked why the golf course
could not amend its initiation
fee for new members, as a way
of boosting membership.
John Fogel \%nh Kitson .
Partners, said t'hile coi ie Ne
golf courses donlt ha\e iuch
fees,, they, ht'Ne other require-
merits, such as home ownership
in the development, as a means
of bringing in revenue.
"We did a lot of internal
analysis," he said. "I don't
think we can cut it yet."
The gold operation hopes to
cover some of the shortfall with
new memberships, tourna-
ments, hotel partnerships and
guests.
They are also working with
developers and builders to
increase membership sales to
home buyers.

to prepare
w h a t
changes can
be made in

SEVERINO process,
and then
address res-
idents concerns with them.
There has been no timeline
set for this process.
Voters' complaints about the-
process ranged from the time of
day the election was held to
how and when candidates were
nominated.
Some, such as William
Jackson, told the News-Sun he
believed nominations should be
.made well before the election
meeting, because people had
gathered ballots and started
marking them before official
nominations were taken.
Herb Ohm, chosen to chair


the election, heard similar com-
plaints and said that the district
is working on correcting some
of the problems.
Suggestions included having
proxy voters write ballots 24
hours before the election and
giving people ample time to
meet candidates.
Larry Stange, president. of
the property owners associa-
tion, called a meeting Monday
night for people to meet candi-
dates. Despite notices on the
bulletin board at town hall, only
Brown and Miller showed up.
He asked if there could be a
notice posted elsewhere in the
district, such as at the first traf-
fic circle. Fischer said that
could obstruct xsibilhit and
create a hazard.
Supervisor Joely Poklkoff-
Collard said a candidate, could
be listed on the district Web
site .
Another suggestion from res-
idents was sending candidate
information with monthly water


The election ran from 10-11
a.m. Friday, but many landown-
ers want hours extended.
People who work often 'can't
make it.
McClure said. the published
time of the landowner vote has
been 9 a.m. for a long time.
People can either attend the,
election or send a proxy, he
said.
Some complained that votes
weren't secret, but Ohm said
names must gd on the ballots to
verify ownership of lots.
Severino will remain presi-
.dent of the board. Supervisor
John Clark is still vice president
with Negley serving as treasur-
er.
Before the meeting, the
board authorized Severino, 'as
president, to vote the district's
lots. He didn't, know how many
lots the district has, but said he
didn't have any intention to cast
those votes.,

How do you judge



a funeral home?


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

But the most important factor to weigh is the service.
After all, that's what you will truly appreciate and remember longest.

PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Sun 'N Lake Supervisor John Clark (left) learns from Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton how
many calls for law enforcement the improvement district has had over the last year. On Friday, district
supervisors voted 4-1 to draw up an agreement to have off-duty Highlands County sheriff's deputies
handle security during peak hours. The agreement won't take effect until Oct. 1 at the earliest.


Sun 'N Lake to hire deputies


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING By October,
Sun 'N Lake may have
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies working as security in
the district.
The Sun 'N Lake of Sebring'
Improvement District Board of
Supervisors voted 4-1 to have
off-duty deputies stationed in
the area during peak times.
Supervisor Joely Polokoff-
Collard dissented. She wanted
more information, such as what
seasons were the highest for
calls or if recent hurricanes
affected that total.
Sheriff Susan Benton said

she didn't have calls for service,
broken down that way, but said
she could get that information
to the board, possibly by the
middle of this.week.
On invitation from the super-
visors, Benton and Maj. Mark
Schrader went to answer ques-
tions at Friday's supervisors
meeting.
Benton said assigning a
deputy to the district would
depend on the area's needs and
peak hours, which right now are
between late morning and mid-
night.
Right now, Benton typically'
has one deputy working a par-
ticular zone basically 1.1
deputies per 1,000 people with
more than 1,000 square miles in
the county.
She plans to redesign the
zones to put 10 new deputies on
the road, two on every shift to
condense the area they have to
cover.
Deputies like to do extra
work, she said, if the hours are
regular. Sun 'N Lake would
have that advantage over spe-
cial' events asking, -for traffic
control, Benton said.
The district uses Robert
Garcia & Associates for securi-


ty, however, they cannot give
citations or make arrests.
Garcia's staff calls the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office when incidents require
law enforcement or crime scene
investigation.
Since the district is in the
unincorporated area of the
county, any arrests or criminal
investigations must be done by,
the sheriff's office. Garcia's
company provides 24-hour
patrol and an extra sets of eyes
to catch 'or prevent criminal
activity.
Cost for a 12-hour deputy
sheriff would be $135,000 ver-
sus $134,000 for Garcia's 24-
hour security staff.
Polokoff-Collard said keep-
ing Garcia would give the dis-
trict "double coverage" while
still being able to call deputies
when needed.
Benton said the sheriff's
office would train a neighbor-
hood watch, if residents want
one.
' She, also said her deputies
have worked traffic 'en.force-
ment on, 'Sun ':N Lake
Boulevard, Ponce de Leon
Boulevard and other major dis-
trict roads.

SEBRING Transportation
is a public infrastructure where
users fees don't pay for capaci-
ty.
Matthew B. Click, intergov-
ernmental programs coordina-
tor for Florida's Turnpike
Enterprise, predicts that must
change for Florida to meet its
transportation needs in the next
50 years.
On Wednesday, he presented
his personal opinion and pre-
dictions to the Highlands
County Long-range
Transportation Committee.
Lost predictions
Several predictions 50 years
ago personal helicopters,
monorail trains, or flying or
floating cars didn't happen
while ,air-conditioned c.ibins,.
cruise control and car phones
did. They fit the market.
To keep up with growth, both
in Florida and nationwide,
Click said transportation should
follow the law of supply and
demand, by providing a supply
on demand.
'Florida's future
In 2055, Florida will have 45'
million people like
California now. The entire
nation will be older.
Employment will be infor-
mation-based: The location of

ed near natural resources or
good roads, Click said.
For example, auto makers
located in Detroit because it
was central to iron ore and other
raw materials. Microsoft, on the
other hand could set up any-
where. Bill Gates put it in
Redmond, Wash., because .he
grew up there.
In 2055, Florida will have
lots of reserved environmental
areas alongside new growth
areas not yet developed and
urban intensity reaching from
the coasts to the interior.
Time is money
People pay now for toll.roads
because it's a faster drive across
Florida. They also pay a premi-
um for cable television, Click
said, for more choices than they
could get with an aerial anten-
na.
'The same is true of mass
transit. In the future, Click said,
transit will respond to this mar-
ket force and give more choic-
es.
Personal transit
Already .people can share
rides. With every cellular phone
having global positioning satel-
lite technology, urban .areas
could also 'use driver-less per-
sonal transit pods.
Calling the system from a
cellular phone, the rider could
order the nearest pod to pick


the number of riders he or she
has, Click said.
Like a utility, personal transit
would have users paying only
for the capacity they use. Prices
could vary by time, location
and the amount of congestion
on the road.
All-toll
Click said people already pay
indirectly for capacity with fed-
eral gasoline taxes, only those
taxes don't return directly as
new roads.
In the future, all cars and
trucks could carry a transponder
similar to the SunPass on the
turnpike, and be charged based
on the congestion at that time
and place.
Smaller cars would pay less
because they use less space.
Smaller and smarter
Cars will be electric to save
on pollution and fuel costs,
Click said, and would commu-
nicate with other cars, for safe-
ty.
Today's small sedan could be
the future "large" four-person
car. Cities will start restricting
such cars from the urban core,
Click said.
Most urban cars will measure
eight feet long by four feet
wide, he said two-seater
short-wheelbase cars like
European "Spark" cars or the
Ford "Think," taking less space


him or her up, and pay only for in lanes and parking spaces.

instrumental in making the property purchase and construction back in 1985' when the local
blood bank first opened.'

Other requests

face traffic, land
rights questions
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING
Commissioners approved a
land-use change on Tuesday to
property with conservation on
it.'
However, they would not
allow a rezone from camp-
ground to high-density residen-
tial until the site gets environ-
mental clearance. They won't
allow any campground activity,
and the developer will have to
ask for a flexible-unit develop-
ment.
The 54.52 acres just south of
Camp Florida on U.S. 27, south
of Lake Placid, has 16 acres of
conservation. H&M Properties
asked to have that 16 acres
"floating" so they could assign
it to various spots in the site
plan. .
Commissioners and local
environmentalists didn't agree
with that.
Ranger Kurt Olsen, hired by
the developer to examine the
eastern side of the site, said it
has exotic species, is over-
grown from not having, been
managed -- burned for sev-
eral years, and is not a pristine
sand hill habitat anymore.
However, in a letter to
Commissioner Barbara Stewart,
Dr. Hilary Swain of Archbold
Biological Station said the site
has listed species,, a rare habitat
and plants that are only found at
two other locations.
Hank Kowalski and Walt
Courtney, both of Lake Placid,
wanted the county to look into
wide swaths allegedly cut into
the property to do surveys. If
that was unpermitted land-
clearing, Kowalski said, the
land would be subject a three-
year moratorium on develop-
ment... ,
Wednesday .evening
Development Services Director
Jim Polatty reminded members


of the Natural Resources
Advisory Commission that they
gave environmental clearance
on half the site already.
He's asking the developer to
do a site plan based on a- com-
plete environmental survey so
the two work "hand-in-hand."
Other contentious hearings
were as follows:
Catfish Creek Road
Van Kirk Investments II LLC
withdrew a request to change
8.9 acres on the west side of
Catfish Creek Road at the inter-
section with Deanna Drive.
It, was the third time in four
years that the land-locked
orange grove was proposed for
development
Once again, adjacent resi-
dents objected to giving 17
households access to the lake
via a public park located
between two of their homes.
Tractor Road
Sandy Ridge Groves Inc. got
40 acres of agricultural land
east of Tractor Road changed to
medium-density residential
planned-use development. It's
capped at 313 homes with four.
to eight units per acre and a 40-
foot-widebuffer between it and
other development.
Local residents said shell-
based Tractor Road cannot take
more traffic. They fear a wreck
if traffic empties via a reputed


"blind" curve onto
Road 17.


County


Chain of Lakes
Chain of Lakes LLC got
approval to change 70 acres of
agricultural land on the south-
west intersection of U.S. 27 and
Lake Francis Road, north of
Lake Placid, from agriculture to
medium- and high-density resi-
dential.
It's capped at 135 dwelling
units, basically three per acre.
Although six lakefront lots will
have boat docks, the public
dock will have no marina or
boat ramp, to relief of local res-
idents.
Industrial
John and Donna B.
Whittington got 39.46 acres on
the east side of Twitty Road, a
quarter-mile south of the inter-
section with Skipper Road,
changed from .agriculture to
industrial for offices and a
warehouse park.
Commissioners said it will
neither have any direct connec-
tion to U.S. 27, to relief of
Buttonwood Bay residents, nor
have traffic cut across it, from
adjacent industrial property to'
reach Twitty Road.
All traffic leaving the, site
itself will have to reach U.S. 27
by taking Twitty Road to,
Skipper Road.

Early to work


KEVIN J. SHUTT/News-Sun
On a brisk January morning, like every other morning from 5-9 a.m., Duncan Hinkley rides his
bicycle to work at the Sebring Municipal Golf Course, cuts the greens of 18 holes and rides his
bike home. After an early lunch or late breakfast, he'll ride his 500cc Kawasaki Vulcan on shop-
ping errands then return home to swim laps before playing a round of golf in the evening.
Somehow, he fits in 'about 75 naps' during his busy schedule. He enjoys life without a television,
choosing instead to listen to 'country and western' on the radio. He's gotten this far, he said, by
not adopting the 'hurry up and wait' attitude of society likening himself to the the slower yet
determined character in The Tortoise and the Hare fable.

CELL
Continued from 1A
many embryonic stem cell
research advocates fail to dis-
close, is that adult stem cells
also are pluripotent.
"These stem cells don't know
yet what they want to be when
they grow up," Pepin said of
embryonic stem cells. "I liken
adult stem cells to college stu-
dents who are rolling along a
path to a chosen profession or
vocation ... but, under the right
circumstances they can become
anything else."
That difference is why,- he
said, there have been 300,000
patients treated for 74 different
diseases or disorders through
adult stem cells whereas there's
no evidence of even one person
or one ailment being success-
fully cured by embryonic stem
cells.
"While embryonic stem cells
are showing a lot of hype, adult
stem cells are showing a lot. of
results and hope," Pepin sail.
"Science does not have to kill to
save lives."
Pepin named a few areas suc-
cessfully treated by adult stem
cells stroke, some auto-
immune diseases, breast cancer,
Parkinson's disease, brain
tumors, spinal cord injuries,
Type I diabetes, non-Hodgkins
lymphoma and testicular can-
cer.
"It's not so much what sci-
ence can.do," Pepins said. "It's
what we allow science to do."
Retired priest Father Roger
Boniifas said the challenge that
lies ahead for the Catholics in

Stem Cell Research Funding
This amendment appropriates S20 million annuallN for 10 fiscal

institutions to conduct embryonic stem cell research using, or
using derivatives of, human embryos that. before or after I'ori.i-
uon. ha\e been donated to medicine under donor instructions for-
bidding mtrautenne embryo transfer. An embryo is -donated to
medicine"' onl] if given without t receipt of consideratLonr ~iOer thun
cost reimbursement and compensation for reco\er- of don.aed
cells.
According to the Flonda Djs iion of Elections" Web -te as of
Saturday, a ballot initiative to provide slate ta\ mone\ for embhri-
onic stem cell research has garnered onlb 5.031 signatures of the

attendance is to spread the word
about stem cell research, that
there are alternatives to embry-
onic stem cells.
Adult stem cells, Pepin told
the audience, can be collected
from -.umbilical cords, placen-
tas, primary (baby) teeth, bone.
marrow, nasal mucus and other
methods.
The differences 'are that adult
stem cells produce a more lim-
ited line of cells than embryon-
ic. But, he said, embryonic cells
are less controllable.'
"There has not been one pos-
itive clinical result from embry-
onic stem cells," he said, noting
that embryonic stem cells have
been known to produce cancers
and tumors., "And in many
cases more harm than good has
come from embryonic stem cell
research."

Pepin said President George
Bush, in 2001, actually "liberal-

role in stem cell research by
funding (when there was, no

prohibiting government-funded
research on new embryonic

And in .no way, he said, is

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Standing outside the police station at 307 N. Ridgewood Ave., Chief Thomas Dettman discusses what will
and what won't change during construction anticipated to begin in April. What won't change, drastical-
ly, will be the station's facade. Inside, the goal is to restore the lobby to a close-to-original appearance
while converting wasted floor space in back tooffices.


STATION
Continued from 1A

Vicki Hicks' office, used to be
the postmaster's.
Again pointing at the wall
hiding Carr's office, Dettman,
said, "We're going to put the
original bank of mailboxes
back in this lobby."
His goal is to return the
1940s feel of the post office,
which will include restoring the
internal facade and replacing
Hicks' office with a conference
room behind a glass wall.
Doing so will visually open
up the lobby while showing off
the original crown molding and
wainscoting while smartly
using the otherwise vast lobby.
"We'll have a service win-
dow, maybe two, that, will
depict the old service windows
the post office used to have,"
Dettman said.
The terrazzo tiles have given
way to carpeting.
"We're looking into the pos-
sibility of restoring that floor,"
Dettman said, explaining that
the highly polished, stone is
slick. "We're concerned with
slipping, though."
In with the old and in with


the new, the chief said some
changes such as wider doors
and an elevator at the dock in
back will bring the police
department into compliance
with the Anrericans with
Disabilities Act.
Over the years the nearly
10,000 square feet of usable
floor space has served various
needs what used to be a
Mayberry-esque holding cell is
now the staff break room; the
coal room for the steam heaters
has become a locker/fitness
room; and the mail-sorting area
between the dock and dispatch
is wasted space save some
administrative boxes and a
hitching post, rarely used any-
more to hold prisoners while
reports are written.
"There's not a whole lot they
can't do from their patrol cars,"
Dettman said, explaining that
26 officers are equipped with
wireless Internet-connected
laptops. "It frees up the need for
additional office space." -.
Because of such "strategic
planning" with input from key
staff, his department will be
able to grow with the city with-
out outgrowing its historic
home,Dei iii .iii ,.l .
"There were times when we
didn't have police coverage


because everybody was in the
station writing reports," he said,
indicating the vacant wall-
mounted shelf that once served
as a workstation for five per-
sonal computers.
During the, walk-around out-
side, Dettman pointed out the
original basement windows and
noted that outside all that heed-
ed to be done was some win-
dow replacements, the doors,
and painting and patching.
Back inside, the chief said it
might be hard to find a contrac-
tor who wants to tackle the job
of restoring a historic building.
From working with foot-
thick walls in some places to
the tedious preservation of the
original frames when replacing
window glass, Dettman said
this project is a big undertaking,
expected to take up to a year to
complete.
Dettman said he is looking
into alternate office space
because hisadministrative staff
will be displaced but field offi-
cers should be largely unaffect-
ed.
"It's outlived its usefulness
as it currently stands," Dettman
said of the building. "There is
.., iiit h Ii ..tet flo,-t r t pace .and.
it needs to be updated function- '
ally and 'aesthetically."

iTreasure hunt uncovers craftsmen


MBy SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID After
)Don and Patty Neman, owners
|of Holiday Treasures and
Trinkets, opened their store
more than two years ago,'
they've now added fine
antiques to their offerings.
After Don retired from a long
career with General Motors and
kPatty retired from a family busi-
ess of Lucite fabricating, they
oved to Lake Placid and
decided to fulfill Patty's dream.
JHaving been actively making
crafts since she was 15 and
showing her work at fairs, she
wanted a place where she could
display and sell her work at rea-
sonable prices.
The store is sep.r.ated into
distinct areas: Starting at the
back is Patty's workroom,
here she caLn-lusuilli be found
cutting the final touches on a
handcrafted piece. This also is
where she meets customers to
discuss their special orders and
'actuall- builds them.
In another room it is ..l\ ,
phristmas; Lighted trees and
wreaths beckon. Here cus-
t[omer, will find numerous -
*unique Christmas items to
"warm up their home and even
,:,me of Patty's one-of-a-kind
angels.
Another separate room is
'called the Lighthouse Port. It
consists of a variety of beautiful
seashells and fishing decora-
lions to enhance any decor.
S.Although 80 percent of their
stock is handcrafted, the main
room holds gift items and deco-
'rtIme bags, collectable fig-
Wirines, baskets, paper plate

They have two lines of greet-
ing cards: Renaissance and
Oatmeal (which are humorous.)
Don is joyful, always playful
and ready for a good time, he
,also is the handyman. His
sleighs and reindeer appeared in
front yards this season. He has
made big trucks or trains for
pho[orajphers as props. He can


make anything. For instance
when a postal worker retired, he
made a postal truck mailbox.
He's created an 18-inch by
eight-foot train that wrapped
around a little boy with a
lantern. An old-fashioned truck
with a horn and a movable
steering wheel for kids to play
on was especially rewarding for
Don to make.

from Ohio living in Sebring,

"We travel all over looking at


antiques. And this is the best
craft shop we've found in the
area, and their Christmas room
of decorations is absolutely
beautiful," Mary Jane Smith
said.
"We make beautiful things at
reasonable prices. We believe in
making people happy. Our cus-
tomers are like family. They
stop by to read the funny cards,
look for a unique gift, or share a
cup of coffee. Lake Placid is a
friendly town and we're a
friefldly store," Don said.
Holiday Treasures and

Lakeshore Mall brings




in new businesses


Photos by SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Andy and Marti Capodiferro, owners of Andy's Hot Dog World in Lake Placid, put the finishing touches
on some Italian sausage sandwiches and now they are ready to serve. ,



Think inside the bun


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Andy
Capodiferro thinks inside the
bun.
Recently, he and his wife
Marti opened Andy's Hot Dbg
World Inc. in Lake Placid.
There's not only a plain,
ordinary hot dog, but a quarter
pound hot dog, a New York
Coney, or a Kraut dog. The
Memphis comes with barbecue
sauce and coleslaw.
Capodiferro also offers an all-
American, and the Boston dog
which comes with mustard,
onions and piccalilli. His Texas
spicy chili dog, the Miami dog.
with salsa, mustard, and onion
or a Chicago dog with mustard,
onions, relish, pickle, tomato,
hot peppers and celery salt all
have distinctive personalities a
customer will not forget.
Capodiferro serves a large,
Italian sausage with peppers
and onions for $4.75: Inside the
bun or on a hoagie there's a
choice of tuna, egg and turkey
salad or steak and cheese fill-
ings. :Side .orders include frencb.,,
- fries, curly fries, sweet potato
fries, potato salad and coleslaw.
A cup or bowl of soup or chili is
always available.
Carol Cooper of Sebring said
the sweet potato fries are won-
derful and the Italian sausage is
well worth a visit.
And to wash it all down,
there's iced tea, iced or hot cof-
fee, sodas and bottled water,
espresso and latte. For the
sweet tooth there's a cookie
monster of ice cream and cook-
ies, the pie of the day, or you
can choose a hand-dipped old-
fashioned milkshake, a root
beer float, or a scoop of ice
cream.
The Capodiferro's are new to

Lake Placid from Miami. Marti
has been a professional singer
for 30 years, performing on
stage, for reviews, at churches
and clubs as a solo artist.
"Maybe Andy will add an
Italian night and I can sing
opera here," she said.
Andy had worked in the
computer industry since 1956.
"But this had been my dream
for 15 years. I had no choice. I
make everything myself, like
egg or tuna salad, and coleslaw.
I don't use prepared products.
Eating here is like having a
home-cooked meal. I serve


things I've always liked -
there's hard ice cream and gour-
met coffees and espresso.
People may have a little diffi-
culty finding us, but once they
do, they are repeat customers,"
Capodiferro said.
Andy's Hot Dog World is at
340 East Interlake Blvd. (across*
from Curves and next to
Hartzell's Market) in Lake
Placid,. For details, call 699-
5577. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4
p.m. Monday through Saturday.
He's open those same days to
serve coffee, Danish, or bagels,

this Flash From the Past of
Dec. 18, 1969.
About 30,000 people expect-

entered from the United States
and six foreign countries for the
Dec. 27-28 races at the Sebring
track.
With the $40,000 L&M
Grand Prix and the Grant's "8"
Formula F championship, there
will also be a new track.
The races will utilize the 2.2

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Who's that in

the mirror?
I have always loved
stringing words into encour-
aging, inspiring concepts.
The creative process
intrigues and challenges me.
But, it took a long time for
me to look in the mirror and
say, "I'm a writer."
When someone asked
what I did, I'd say, "I ,
write." For some reason, I
didn't think of myself as a
writer so I didn't say so.
Maybe I thought of writ-
ers as people with journalis-
tic credentials from college;
or famous authors; or,
someone who earned a full-
time living at the craft.
Consequently, I struggled
with including myself in
that group of wordsmiths.
Then I attended a
Christian Writers
Conference and took a class
on calling. I determined to
know once and for all if I
should get a "real job" or if
writing was indeed my call-
ing. I learned that a calling
is something I love to do,
am always doing, feel com-
pelled to do and others are
blessed by it. All at once, I
knew I had my answer.
Tears of affirmation
spilled down my face.
Words of assurance burned
in mi heart and mind. At
last, I knew I was a writer.
These memories remind
me of another truth I
learned in the Bible study,
Believing God by Beth
Moore. She reminded me
that I am who God sa\ that
I am. Even though I may
see inadequacies, flaws and
weaknesses, God sees who
he s a I am. .
I may think I'm "thaCt
(what I used to be). But, he
says I'm "this" (who I am
in Christ). And he's longing
for the day I'll look in the
mirror and see what he sees
because God is convinced I
can do what he's called me
to do. He wants me to
choose according to being
"this" even if sometimes I
may feel like choosing
"'that." God isn't concerned
with my lack but rather
with his sufficiency.
"'Being confident of this,
that he who began a good
work in you will carry it on
to completion until the day
of Chnst Jesus." .
(Philippians 1: 6, NIV)
My friend has a card dis-
played on her refrigerator
door. When I first noticed it,
I saw a kitten looking in a
mirror. Then I realized what
the kitten was seeing.
Staring back from the mir- .
ror was the image of a lion.
Do we see the potential
that God sees when he
looks at us? Are we ready to.
agree that when we know
Chri.i as our personal
Savior and Lord we are
children of God the ever-
!a'ting Father, the King of
kings?
Who's that in the mirror?
Sons and daughters of the
King, that's who. Let's live
like we believe it. Selah.

Yeaci of the Dog


Chinese celebrate new ,'ear


together with good food
fl6r1r yblc fwat n "


S By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING


M| ing Tong Restaurant manager Steve
Cheung w ill celebrate the Chinese
New Year today with family and
friends.
Having immigrated from Hong
Kong more than 20 years ago with his mother, brother
and sister, he's lived in Sebring almost six years. His
father came to the United States first in 1970 and got his
citizenship.
Cheung.appreciates living in the United States.
"It is a big difference
between China and America. It
is much better here. There is
more freedom and the ability
to do one's best and be
rewarded for it," Cheung said.
"In China, there are so many
people, so few jobs, and so lit-
tle pay. The government con-
trols everything. In America
there are many opportunities."
Cheung's version of the
Chinese New Year has become a
Americanized. Whereas in
China. everyone gets two
weeks off to celebrate.
"Here we do what we can.


Everyone is busy working. and
it seems impossible to get
together. But there will be lots
of home cooking, and families
visiting other families during
that two week period. One tra-
dition is to stuff $1 or so in a
red envelope for each kid. It
wishes them good luck. and to
have a lucky year," Cheung
said.
This year is the Chinese
Year of the Dog. If someone is
born in this year of their horo-
scope, it will be a good year
for them. If in business, they
will make money. They will
have good health, and every-
thing will go well.
"In New York's Chinatown,
they'll celebrate with the
Dragon Dance and. the Lion
Dance on the street. They get
martial arts people to perform
these dances because the cos-


flowers are symbolic of wealth and AwP
high positions in one's career. And
lucky is the home with a plant that blooms
on New Year's Day, for that foretells a year of
prosperity. They believe that without flowers
there would be no formation of fruits. Therefore it is of
utmost importance to have flowers and floral decora-
tions. These are the emblems of reawakening of nature
and the wish for happiness for the ensuing year.

More food is consumed during the Chinese New Year
celebrations than any other time of the year especially
to share with family and
friends. One favorite vegetarian
dish is called jai and the
Chinese attribute various super-
stitious aspects to these ingredi-
ents:
Lotus seed signifies hav-
ing many male offspring
Ginkgo nut represents
silver ingots
ui Black moss seaweed -
exceeding in wealth
SDried bean curd fufill-
ment of wealth and happiness
Bamboo shoots A wish
S that everything will be well
Fresh bean curd or tofu is not
included as it is white and
unlucky for New Year as the
color signifies death and mis-
. fortune.
Other foods that are impor-
tant to serve when celebrating
the New Year include a whole
fish, to represent togetherness

tumes are heavy and large, ,
with long colorful tails. That's ;
such fun to see. Also, they set
off firecrackers from door-
ways." Cheung said.
These celebrations signify .-
starting the New Year off with .
a bang, and bringing good luck Ming FIongi Mnaaer Ste%
to the household. At night, an emnelope to be gken oU
there are arts and crafts festi- It- vr. which i'k celebrated
vals, and a light show.
Everyone is happy and buys special plants for the occa-
sion. It's also important to wear all new clothes, especial-
ly new shoes. It signifies a fresh new start, a new step
forward, and a hopeful new year.
Chinese households like to buy and have live bloom-
ing plants to symbolize rebirth and new growth because

The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12-year cycle, each year of which is named after a different animal that imparts
distinct characteristics to its year. Many Chinese believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary
factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of suc-
cess and happiness throughout his or her lifetime. It also shows your compatibility with people of
the other signs.
Dog people possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are
honest, and inspire other people's confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog
people are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth; yet
somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally
and sometimes distant at parties. They can find
fault with many things and are noted for
their sharp tongues. Dog people make
11 good leaders. They are compatible with
those born in the Years of the Horse.
Tiger, and Rabbit.

ARTS & LEISURE




'Mame' to be presented at SFCC


AVON PARK "Mame,"
one of the liveliest, happiest,
and most entertaining musicals
of Broadway's golden age will
take to the stage as part of the
South Florida Community
College Artist Series. at 7:30
p.m. Thursday at the South
Florida Community College
auditorium, Highlands campus.
This popular musical is a
happy happening. Mame is a
well-to-do who lives in New
York at the peak of the 1920s
and is soon surprised by a
"wonderful present" an
orphaned nephew named
Patrick.
Ten-year-old Patrick needs
his aunt, which is something
new for "Mame.' Parenting
changes her life, bringing her
into sharp conflict with her best
friend, Vera Charles, a multi-
martini grande dame of the
legitimate theatre who can't
stand children. The man
"Mame"' is about to marry is


perfectly willing to take on the
boy as a bonus, but Mame does-
n't think she'll have time for
marriage because she'll be too
busy being a mother.'
When the Depression bal-
loon bursts, Mame loses all her
money, and she loses jobs as
quickly as she finds them. In a
brief adventure as a manicurist,
she meets. Beau, a wealthy
scion of the South. He takes
Mame to his plantation for the
begrudging approval of his
family.
Beau then proposes in the
bouncing title song which sings
the praises of Marne.
There is only one problem:
young Patrick is afraid he has
lost his best girl his Auntie
Marne.
Now in the 1930s, Vera
stands by her bosom buddy
when Mame returns to
Beekman Place after Beau's
sudden death. Patrick, now in.
college, and Maine's former


suitor Lindsey Woolsey, prompt
Mame into writing her mem-
oirs. The maturing Patrick
seems to be slipping away from
Mame's ideal of freedom.
When he declares his engage-
ment to a fatuous blonde "with
an IQ of a dead flashlight bat-
tery," Mame is in despair. But
the lady's resources are endless.
Just as young Patrick rescued
her from the shallow trap of the
1920s, Marne helps the boy to
save himself from a life of drab-
ness and snobbery.
This Artist Series perform-
ance is co-sponsored by Dr. and
Mrs. Placido M. Roquiz, Jr. and
by Drs. Abe and Carmelita Lim.
Tickets are available for this
musical event, with prices rang-
ing from $33 to $43. For ticket
information, contact the SFCC
Box Office weekdays, from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at ext.
7178, at 453-6661, 465-5300,
773-3352, or 494-7500, or
directly at 784-7178.

'The Empire of Scrounge'



locates treasures in trash


My father's business revolved
around the needs of vehicle owners,
whether they were farmers who needed
custom-made trailers, small-time
entrepreneurs looking for a used com-
mercial van, or just the ordinary Joe,
trying to replace a broken side mirror.
He owned an auto parts and had with it
about a two-acre ancient apple orchard
converted to probably the world's most
tidy junkyard. I grew up around people
who made do, used things up, and con-
verted what was available into what
was needed, so naturally, I just had to
take home the new book "The Empire
of Scrounge."


LIBRARY

Hesse


Not many-of us view other people's trash as an
all-consuming hobby, but author Jeff Ferrell,
temporarily unemployed, really got into his sub-
ject, spending more than eight months living the
life of a resident scrounge'r. He had both a bicycle
and a small truck and got to know all the areas in
his city that' were prime hunting grounds.
Have you ever put something out on the side of
the road a chair, a couch, an old bicycle or
some dinnerware only to find that within half
a day or less, those items had disappeared? If
you've cleaned out a garage, or seen the leavings
of a divorce, curbside, chances also are that a
recycler has come by and taken home what was-
n't wanted. That premise of reusing and finding
value in things thrown out is documented in "The
Empire of Scrounge." Ferrell finds the driving
force of hyper-consumerism going hand in hand
with artificially created needs for the latest and
hottest fads and fashions. Whether it's the newest
type of home decor, truck, car, clothing, or other
gimmick, the book exposes over and over the
wasteful use of the world's, resources by those
who throw out gifts and purchases still in their
original boxes, just because they can.
Over and over Ferrell salvaged perfectly good
clothing, like-new toys,. bicycles, even jewelry
and money carelessly left in dresser drawers. He


points out the crying need to salvage
and recycle the tons of steel, copper,
and aluminum tossed out by contrac-
- U tors and homeowners alike. The point
that he wants us also to understand is
that those scruffy scroungers are the
:-., .. thin, dirty line between the discarders
A \ and the landfills.
There are neighborhoods that don't
SLINES want strange people going through
their garbage or climbing into ,their
'lyn dumpsters, and some police forces tend
,link to see the sweaty, dirty dumpster divers
- as undesirables, but clearly we, as
Americans, are the world's biggest
wasters of resources. How else to explain the
"hundreds of used toys, thrown out just before the
tide of Chrinstm.-,' new toys, arrive.under the
tree?" Why else dowe. see the entire contents of
closetg, complete drefs eis, upholstered chairs,
and the papers and pictures documenting a per-
son's life, all out by the curb?
Did you know that dedicated scroungers have
their own set of etiquette? Were you aware that
homeless shelters, children's homes, and battered
women's shelters can always use blankets and
towels and are glad to take canned goods and
even opened bottles and boxes of detergent and
other cleaners?
Two other books to enlighten you are: "That
Might Be Useful: Exploring America's
Secondhand Culture," and "The Urban Treasure
Hunter."
Warning this, library may contain unusual,
hilarious, fascinating, sinister, and even frighten-
ing things. Read at your own risk. Highsmith.

An inspirational thought

To all my readers. Happy Neiw
Year! Thank the Lord iwe made it
over. Ephesians 5:15-17 say's.
SSee then that you walk
Scircuinspectliv. not as wise.
Redeeming tile time. because the
Says are evil. Therefore, do not
Snwiiise, but understand what
theI will of thle Lord is. Thle Lord
really deserves more time from us than we're giving
to Him. I'm sure mnIIany of you can agree with iec oni
that note. In thle above scripture, apostle Paul
admonished the Ephesian church to make the most
of their time. \h'iat do you think Paul meant whiien
he said be careful lhowi you walk. not as unwise imen
but as wise minaking thle most of your time, because
the days are evil? Paul was saying that most people
have their minds set on things that are fading and
contain little eternal value. \\'c must learn lioin to
manage our time down to n matter of discipline.
Are you focused on tlhei things God has given you to
do, or are you being drawn'n away by other
activities? As God gave tile Ephesian cliurci
strength to overcome the enemy. Hei will do same for
you. Do not take time for granted. but make thei
most of it. Be Encouraged!

Bringing beauty to landscapes with ornamental grasses


With hundreds of types of
ornamental grasses to choose
from and a range of sizes, col-
ors and flower characteristics,
it's no wonder ornamental
grasses are riding a wave of
popularity.
Types of ornamental grasses
include:
Japanese silver grass
(Miscanthus sinenis) .
Height: 3 to 6 feet. Japanese
silver grass is one of the most
often used grasses containing a
large number of individual cul-
tivars. Japanese silver grass is a
robust, upright, dense grass
growing in very tight clumps.
Foliage is green, coarse in tex-
ture with some varieties having
variegated foliage. Flowers are
white, pinkish or reddish in
color, blooming from late
august until frost. The plants
will grow in a wide variety of


soils but require ample fertility,
moisture and full surn. Some
plants will get large and so
should have ample room to
grow. Japanese silver grass has
outstanding fall color .and in
combination with flowers offer
a nice display.
M Perennial fountain grass
(Pennisetum alopecuroides)
Height: 12 inches to 3 feet.
Fountain grass is an upright,
open, mound forming plant.
This is an excellent ornamental
grass. It should be used as an
accent or specimen plant, in the
middle of borders, and with
other perennials. A mass plant-
ing produces a colorful display
when in full bloom. Fountain
grass does well as a transitional
grass between formal and natu-
ral areas. Flowering occurs in
July and 'goes through fall.
Flower color changes from


whitish purple to
coppery purple and
persists well into
winter. Fall foliage is _A
yellow-gold .
Fountain grass grows
well in any fertile,
moist, .wet or well-
drained soil. It r
prefers full sun to
very light shade. GRI
Quick facts about SEA
ornamental grasses
are: Hig,
Grasses are Higl
County
adaptable and can Gard
grow in poorer soils --
better then many
other garden plants.
Grasses require little effort
to maintain.
Grasses come in many
heights' colors' textures and
have varying water require-
ments.

Grass seed
heads and foliage add
fall and winter inter-
est.
Dried grasses
have many decora-
tive uses indoors and
out.
Grasses can be
used as groundcov-
ers' specimen plants'
for erosion control'
and as vertical design
elements.
Care and mainte-
nance tips for orna-
mental grasses include:
Fertilizer


Ornamental grass requires'
relatively low levels of fertility.
By keeping the level of nitrogen
low, lodging or flopping over
can be kept to a minimum. Leaf
color and vigor are good guides
to nitrogen requirements.


Application of one-half to one
pound of 10-10-10 fertilizer per
100 sq. ft. of garden area, or
about one-quarter cup per plant
. Apply fertilizer in the spring.
Water
Plants should be well
watered the first season so they
can develop a good root system.
Established plants do not need
regular watering, but may need
supplemental watering during
drought periods. The amount of
water depends the grass species,
the site, and on the quality, size
and growth rate desired.
Weed control
Cultivate around grass plants
to control weeds. Application of
mulch will greatly reduce the
need for cultivation as well as
watering. It also tends to keep
grasses in check that have a ten-
dency tp be heavy reseeding
types.


Winter Protection and
spring clean up
Grasses do not need to be cut
down before winter. They are
attractive when left standing
and the foliage helps to insulate
the crown of the plant.


If you have a plant that you
would like for one of the
Master Gardeners to write
about or if you have gardening
questions, call 402-6540 or
visit the Master Gardeners
office in the Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center Send ques-
tions to: Master Gardeners,

Composting and mulching makes better gardens


This is the third in a series of
columns dedicated to backyard
conservation and how you can
help improve the environment
and protect our natural
resources. The source of most
of the information comes from
a publication titled "Backyard
Conservation" by the Natural
Resources Conservation
Service: www.nrcs.usda.gov.
Composting is a great way to
turn household wastes into
valuable fertilizer for plants in
your yard.
All organic matter eventually
decomposes. Composting
speeds the, process by providing
an ideal environment for bacte-
ria and other decomposing
micro-organisms. The final
product, humus or compost,
looks and feels like fertile gar-
den soil. This dark, crumbly,
earthy-smelling stuff works
wonders on all kinds of soil and
provides, vital nutrients to help
plants grow and look better. '
You need four key ingredi-
ents in your compost pile: nitro-
gen; carbon; moisture and oxy-
gen. For best results, mix mate-
rials high in nitrogen (like fresh
grass clippings) and those high
in carbon (like dried leaves and
twigs). You can also add veg-
etable and fruit scraps, coffee
grounds, livestock manure and


shredded paper.
Avoid using diseased
plants, meat scraps
that may attract ani-
mals, and dog or cat
manure, which can
carry disease.
You can either
build a compost bin
from wood (two com-
post bins work best to
allow you to turn
compost by moving it
from one bin to the
other) or you can
fashion one using
fencing or chicken
wire. You can also
purchase a plastic


NEWS FROM

composting bin that sits off the
ground and has a handle for
easy turning. Composting can
be as simple or as involved as
you would like, and depends on
how much yard waste you have,
how fast you want results, and
the effort you're willing to
invest.
Cold composting requires no
maintenance. You can just pile
grass clippings and dry leaves
on the ground or in a bin, but
you'll have to wait several
months to a year for the pile to
decompose. You can add to
your pile over time. You might
choose this method if you're
short on time or have little yard


waste. Make sure to
keep weeds and dis-
eased plants out of
the mix.
Hot composting
requires more work,
but with a few min-
utes a day and the
right ingredients you
can have finished
compost in a few
weeks. Hot piles
must be built all at
once in a four to five-
foot cube and turned


Donze regularly. As decom-
- position occurs, the
pile will shrink. A
three-foot cube is
needed to maintain necessary
heat. Hot piles can reach 110 to
160 degrees Fahrenheit, killing
most weed seeds and plant dis-
eases. Turn the pile every day or
two and you should get com-
post in less than four weeks.
Turning every other week will
give compost in one to three
months. Finished compost will
smell sweet and be cool and
crumbly to the touch.
Compost makes great mulch.
Mulches are important for pre-
venting loss of moisture from
the soil by evaporation; so you
don't have to water as much.
Mulches help prevent soil ero-
sion and soil compaction.

Mulches also help suppress
weeds and provide nutrients for
plants and an ideal environment
for earthworms and other
organisms that help enrich the
soil.
You'll want to apply mulch
when plants are established and
soil is 'warm. First, water your
garden well. Then place a layer
of mulch around the plants.
Thickness of the mulch layer
varies for each material: Dry
grass clippings two inches;
shredded hardwood mulch,
straw, or wood chips two to
four inches; compost three to
four inches; dry leaves six
inches.
As the mulch breaks down,
add more material to the top
throughout the growing season.
After harvest, work the mulch
into the soil to integrate the
organic material, or leave it on
the surface to decay naturally
and be carried into the soil by
earthworms.

Manners are not about being stuffy. I have

and sizes.
Whatever a. person
chooses to allow to
inhabit their mind, is
what will be spilled
into their environ-
ment. A child's
behavior can either
inspire with manners,
or pollute with rude-

ness. I
Good manners are
a tool for every' indi-
vidual who wants to
succeed in life, and for making smart choices
with our behavior in society.
An incident occurred in a lunchroom, where
one child saw an empty seat and inquired, "Is
this seat taken?" Without hesitation, another
child responded in a reprimanding voice ..
"Who you, think you is? Where I come from we
just say ... why is you sitting at my table?!"
The polite or mannerly response to the stu-
dent would have been, "The seat is available,'"
or "This seat is taken."
Schools stopped teaching etiquette and man-
ners as part of the curriculum during the 1960s
and 70s. Now there are adults and children %% ho
are rude and ill-mannered. In addition, children
are being raised by children. Parents are
younger these days barely out of diapers,
themselves. The only way they know to correct
a child's behavior is with a slap or some other-
physical punishment.
Children learn by emulating what they see
around them. Do you say "'thanks," when your
child does something for you,, or gives you
something? Do you say "please" when you are
asking them to do something? Do you say
"excuse me" when you want to pass them, or
when you inadvertently hurt them or do you
just continue on as if nothing happened? Do
you apologize to your child when you are

choices and never respond favorably?
As leaders of the children, adults need to
make smart choices first to set an example for
the eager minds that rely on us for guidance.
These rules of society or manners, should be
taught as soon as the child is able to under-
stand. Not looking at

Society aids in the .breakdown of' good
behavior. While living in New York, my three-
year-old son was denied acting parts, because
those auditioning him said he wasn't rambunc-
tious enough or that he was too sedate.
The more aggressive kids got the parts while
the quiet, well-mannered ones were passed
So\er This is only one instance where society
penalized a child for calm behavior.
Back in Jamaica, we were taught this little

TALLAHASSEE In cele-
bration of Florida's Arbor Day,
the Department of
Environmental Protection is
encouraging citizens to protect
the state's natural woodlands,
hardwood hammocks and man-
grove forests by planting native
trees like the sabal palm,
Florida's state tree. Late winter
is the ideal time for planting
native species in the state, mak-
ing Florida's Arbor Day several
weeks earlier than the national
observance.
I "By planting native trees on
Arbor Day, Floridians are help-
ing control the .pieatJd of inva-
sive plant species that could
impact our natural environ-
ment," said DEP Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "Trees pro-
vide a number of benefits,
including wildlife habitat and
cleaner air. Participating in
Arbor Day allows us to give
back to the state's environment
and our local communities."


Native trees shape Florida's
environment in the following
ways:
Oxygen In a growing
season, one mature tree can
provide the same amount of
oxygen as the amount con-
sumed by one adult in, a year.
Habitat Provide an
ecosystem for birds, mammals
and other wildlife.
Clean air The leafy sur-'
faces of trees trap and filter out
ash, dust and pollen particles
carried in the air.
Forest products Trees
provide lumber, paper, mulch,
oils, and other products, adding
billions of dollars annually to
Florida's economy.
Aesthetic qualities -
Trees beautify urban and com-
munity areas, such as state
parks, forests and preserves.
Protection Root sys-
tems of trees help filter ground-
water, 'trapping nutrients and
other pollutants. Trees also


lessen the impact of raindrops
on the soil surface and prevent
sediment from eroding into
rivers and streams.
Created by Julius Sterling
Morton, Arbor Day was first
celebrated in Nebraska in 1872.
The idea quickly spread to
neighboring states and is now
recognized in countries world-
wide.
In 1970, President Richard
Nixon proclaimed the last
Friday in April as National
Arbor Day, and all 50 states
participate in Arbor Day cele-
brations. The Florida
Legislature in 1945 designated
the, third Friday in January as
the state's Arbor Day.
Florida is home to a number
of invasive trees including the
Australian pine, chinaberry and
Brazilian pepper.

College's Museum of

Later in the evening, Doug

told an audience how

rodeo announcer, holds up
an empty moonshine bot-
fie. the remnant of a
hb gone moonshine still
that "as rumored to have
operated decades ago on
his ranch near Zolfo
Springs. Barkley-Dambois
gave a lighthearted talk at
The Hotel Jacaranda
about the once common
home-distilled liquor at
'Moonshine,' the last in a
three-part series on
,Catfish, Moonshine.,
Cattle on the Peaiine.'


Special to the News-Sun
M/A-COM Inc., a business
unit of Tyco Electronics and a
worldwide leader of critical
radio communication systems,
announced Friday that Glades
County has committedd to join
Florida's Statewide Law
Enforcement radio system
(SLERS).
SLERS uses state-of-the-art
800 MHz trunking technology
to provide state and local agen-
cies with a single, common
radio network. Glades County
joins the thousands of statewide
users already utilizing this
advanced system ensure that its
emergency personnel are better
prepared in times of crisis and
natural disaster.
Based on Internet Protocol
technology, SLERS is a model
for the nation in providing com-
munications interoperability for
public safety officials. M/A-
COM partnered with
Communica-tions International
Inc. of Vero Beach to construct,
deploy and maintain the sys-


tem.
"Connecting our county per-
sonnel to the SLERS system
will enable our law enforce-
ment officers, .for the first time
ever, to connect with other
emergency officials at the most
critical times, which has previ-
ously been an obstacle to effec-
tively responding to crisis situa-
tions in the County," said
Detective Richard Jones,
Glades County Sheriff's
Department.
"For less than what it would
have cost the county to replace
or extend our previous radio
system, our emergency officials
will be better equipped to com-
municate with other statewide
agencies using the network. By
utilizing SLERS, we will
improve both officer and public
safety readiness through this
shared interoperable radio sys-
tem."
Five years ago, Gov. Jeb
Bush and the Florida
Legislators charged the State
Technology Office to standard-


ize state law enforcement radio
communications by creating a
statewide radio network. The
implementation of SLERS cre-
ated a unique, cost-effective
opportunity for county and
local governments to join a
technologically-advanced,
statewide radio system, which
allows for interoperable com-
munication, with state agencies
and surrounding counties.
Local agencies who. want to
join the system can easily do so.
SLERS provides the latest in
secure, digital communications
for a fraction of the cost
required to install an independ-
ent system.
"Joining the shared network
will enable Glades County to
have direct, statewide interop-
erable communications, giving
emergency and first responder
personnel the ability to respond
quicker and more efficiently
during times of emergency,"
said Bill Tinsley, M/A-COM
director of operations for the
state of Florida.

Suing for false writing


In the interests
of full'disclosure, I LAUJ A
will admit. I have
not read James Laur
Frey's "A Million
Little Pieces," a
book that had been
touted as his memoir. Oprah
Winfrey picked it for her book
club last fall, and sales took off.
The book, allegedly a raw look
at Frey's overcoming self-
destructive behavior, made Frey
a name in the self-help world.
Turns out .memory wasn't
good enough for Frey, who
admitted this year that ,he
embellished some of the facts in
the book to boost its dramatic
content. The revelation made a
modest little dustup in the
news. Frey went on "Larry
King Live" to defend his work.
Many people heaped blame
on the publisher, Doubleday,
saying they should have done a
better job of fact checking. In
response, Doubleday has prom-
ised that future editions of the
book will include some kind of


's LOOK

a Ware


writer's note,
though no one
knows what it will
say exactly.


The issue raised
questions about the
line between mem-
oir and fiction and got the book
back in the news. Oprah has-
stood by the author. Not every-
one has been so inclined.
I'm thinking particularly of a
woman named Pilar More, a
reader of Frey's book.
According to news reports, she
felt cheated when she found out
the book she had read and
thought of as a memoir had
some inaccuracies. To deal with
her feelings, she has filed alaw-
suit against Doubleday, claim-
ing consumer fraud.'
Her' attorneys are hoping to
get the suit classified as a class-
action suit. No damages have
been specified.
Now, I have read books that
made me unhappy for one rea-
son or another. I have had all
kinds of reactions to them.


However, suing the. author or
publisher never occurred to me.
Throwing the book in the trash,
maybe. Write a scathing review
about it on my blog or column,
that could be fun. But file a law-
suit?
A second lawsuit over Mr.
Frey and his book has even
more disturbing ramifications.
This class action lawsuit, filed
in Seattle, seeks damages for
consumers for the I am not
kidding time they lost reading
the book. They add other stuff,
such as breach of contract,
unjust enrichment, and other
multi syllable words, but the
compensation they want is for
the time lost.
For a writer, this is an unset-
tling precedent. I mean, I know
reading my stuff takes time. I
also know that even I have off
da\ s, and there might be
columns or stories that people
will not find riveting. There are
columns that might downright
annoy people. If this lawsuit
goes through, does this mean if

very thing that I didn't want her
to do. I was happy with things
the way they were. I didn't want
them to change.
Rather than complying, I
began spending less time 'with
Martha. She and I walked to
school by ourselves at different
times and I stopped by her
house less and less often. I
think that ,I was as anxious
about Martha's new ability as
she was, but for different rea-
sons.
Finally not able to stand the
separation any longer I visited
Martha. The old awkwardness
returned as we stood and stared
at each other on her front porch.
Martha's mother finally broke
the self-imposed, mutual paral-
ysis by nudging Martha.
"She has something to say to
you."
I swallowed around a lump
in my throat and waited, my
heart beating in my ears. Then
hesitantly, softly, with a tremble.
in her voice ... Martha said my
name for the very first time.
My reaction at hearing
Martha speak was anything but
what I had expected it to be.
Tears sprang to my eyes imme-
qiately and I tripped over my
own feet as I moved forward to
hug her. Even at my young age,
the magnitude of her accom-
plishment was not lost on me.
Martha and I went back to
our old routine. We walked to
school together, hung out

someone gets upset at a column
I write they can demand I pay
them for the few minutes they
spent reading it? Between you
and me, if someone didn't like a
column of mine, I am fine with
them using it to line a birdcage
or wrap fish in.. That should
make them feel better and
might possibly entertain them.
Besides, how are we going to
determine how much time was
lost? Some people read faster
than others. Are we now going
to have to set timers when we
read so we can clock how much
time we spend doing it in case
we have to file a lawsuit claim-
ing lost time?
.Well, we will just have to
wait ,and see how this ends in
that fun playground we call the
American court s.stenm.
However, if they take too long I
wouldn't, suggest you try to sue
them for lost time.

Build your Jocabulary every day


I I \ II14


I like puns.
I grew up in a pun-
nery.
In our house, twist-
ed phrases were
tossed across the din-
ner table like a bad-
minton shuttlecock
full of ketchup, and
made 'a mess of my
brain.
I've found some
friends like that.
Restaurants usually
make us eat away
from the rest of the
room.


REAL LIi
PhilAttinu


It did help me expand my
"jocabulary" my lexicon of
one-word puns.
Each year, Washington Post's
Mensa Invitational asks readers
to take any word from the dic-
tionary and change its meaning
by adding, subtracting or
changing one letter.
For example, last year, I got
"intaxicated:" The euphoria I
felt at getting my tax refund
lasted only until I realized it
was my money to start with.
I bought a car last year. Like
buying a house, it caused
"cashtration," rendering a per-
son financially impotent for a
period of time.
Ever wish your parents were
"omnepotent," and could give
-you any job or position of
power you wanted?
A couple of times, I've visit-


ed the "statosphere,"
that outer. rim, far
from daily life,
where people with
7 power and influence
live.
They don't let me
stay very long.
Perhaps that's
F[ because, in the part,
FE my car was a
"Volkswagin." Its
ger age, lack of mainte-
nance and uneven
tires make it roll
unevenly.
At work, I'm in a


"decafalon," a grueling event of
getting through the day by con-
suming only things that are
good for me.
I'd like to "inoculatte"
myself by taking coffee intra-
venously when I'm running
late.
One of us has quit smoking.
That's tough considering tobac-
co's deadly stranglehold, or
cigarettee."
Every once in a while I see
someone with a cellularr
phone," plastered with ads for
sports or racing teams, clothing,
or soft drinks.
My phone is a wirelesss." It
always drops calls.
I'd like to get an "iPad" a
home furnished completely
with digital entertainment
equipment. It's usually only


hear. I was still her best friend
FRI EN DS and she was mine, and our rela-
tionship was the same as ever,

I


trendy young people with
"Hipatitis" terminal cool-
ness who live like that.
One thing I always had to do
in high school and college. no
matter how cute the girl. was
"'smitigation" -' taking neces-
sary steps to keep from ending
up enamored or involved with
the wrong person.
I've known some people to
have "invatuation" for a
favorite type of wine, until they
actually drink it.
Occasionally, beer drinkers
get "inebrioted" so drunk'
they resemble angry, violent
soccer fans.
When those drunk fans actu-
ally get out and play football,
that's a game of "drugby.".
I saw a guy play video games
while drunk. He's a
"Miscrosot."
My three favorite jocabulary
words this year were bozone,
the Dopeler effect, and sar-
chasm.
Bozone is the substance sur-
rounding stupid people that
stops bright ideas from pene-
trating. The Dopeler effect is
the tendency for stupid ideas to
seem smarter when they come
at you rapidly.
Sarchasm, by biggest neme-
sis, is the gulf between the
author of sarcastic wit and a
person who just doesn't get it.
When I try to reach across
the sarchasm, I'm tempted to
use the Dopeler effect, but it
just doesn't work with wit.
It's really hard to find the
hole in the bozone layer.

Dragons win


8th straight.
By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun Correspondent
LAKE PLACID Marquis Crenshaw
nailed two free throws with 57 seconds
remaining to provide Lake Placid with the
winning point in a 53-51 district victory over
Frostproof here Friday night.
Crenshaw also hit the front end of a one-
.nd-,rie silitu.ion to eind inie scoring with 14
-cCLnd-I id rCiiiiainin'. .Vi'- tie Bulldogs had one
more chance to iasl ;y"'dp-.et when Carlton
Thomas heaved up a long 3-point attempt just
ahead of the buzzer.
Lake Placid's 6-foot-7 center, senior Jan
Valk, leaped up and rebounded the ball to
secure the Dragons' eighth
Lae Placid straight victory.
53 Head coach Steve Young,
W5 who officially put the program
Frostploo, back on top where it was for.
SI "much of the 1970s and 1980s
with his 200th career coaching
victory as a Highlands County
Coach seven days before, admitted that
Friday's game was not Lake Placid's best
effort. But the former collegiate and Sebring
High School coach was ll siiile after the
drama played out and his Dragons prevailed.
"We just wanted to take care of the ball,"
Young said when asked about the team's strat-
egy during the final two minutes. "We had a
little bit of a lead and we had to take care of
the ball.
' "Frostproof played well. They played a
smart game."
Crenshaw's late-game heroics were set up
nicely by Jovanni Shuler's 17 points. Despite
their 7-13 overall record, the Bulldogs proved

to have plenty of bite in their game in Green

Panthers open with


win on last swing
By SCOTT DRESSEL
S t... ., ... .
AVON PARK Consider the debut of the 2006 South
Florida Community College Panthers a successful one.
Josh Welkes hit the first pitch he saw in the bottom of
the seventh inning into right field to drive in Dwvayne

SFC it's nice to do it early in the season so you
learn how to win those things," SFCC head
coach Rick Hitt said. "I was pleased with
-oil our effort, but I know we've got a long way
to go."
The Panthers trailed 3-1 heading into the
bottom of the fifth inning when Dale
Slimick made it a one-run game with an RBI single to
drive' in Trey Cleveland. Tyler Wright's infield single in
the bottom of the sixth inning sci-crd Nick Polston to tie
the game and set up the last-inning drama.
Bailey worked a walk to open the frame and took two
bases on Nick Stanley's sacrifice bunt. After an inten-

baseman's head to score Bailey and end the game.

Lady Streaks get undefeated regular


season, Sampson gets 300th victory


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Spnrt Editnr
SEBRING Theic \'.ere. twvore.-
sojns'.he, LJad Blue Streaks lured
coach Robert Sampson outside the
gym Friday night so they could dump
a water cooler on his head.
First, the Class 4A fourth-ranked
Streaks had just whipped Fort Meade
52-9 to wrap up a 20-0 regular sea-
son, Sampson's first undefeated se.a-
son at Sebring.


Sebring

Fort Meade


Remarkably, the win
also marked another
huge milestone for
Sampson, who won his
300th game.
It was easy to see
why Sampson was still
smiling even after get-


ting soaked by ice-cold water.
"A big night for us here tonight."
said Sampson, who is 300-103 in 15
seasons at, Sebring. "A lot of history
tonight. A lot of history for the girls,'
a lot of history for me and a lot of his-
tory for Sebring High School girls
basketball in general."
Sampson said it was a nice bonus
that an undefeated season and his
300th win both came on the same
night.
"It's pretty odd. At the beginning
of the year; coaches look at the '20-

win season as a mark and back when
you could schedule 28 games, it was,
kind of my goal to wirn 20 games.
'Novt. that it's a 25-game season
and we only played 20 games, to go
20-0 is pretty neat."

College's Jonathan Hernandez in'the process of turning a

first game.

"I got a few girls that are 40-0
because they were on (coach Terry
Quarles') undefeated JV team last
year, but then they said in middle
school they were 10-0 in their eight-
grade year, so I've got some girls out
there who have won 50 straight
games," Sampson said.
"They're real excited tonight and
I'm excited for them."
Friday's win was just like most of
the other 19 Sebring had this season.
Using their suffocating press, the
Streaks scored 20 unanswered points
in the first four minutes of the game
- with lone senior Shakinah
Crumity scoring eight in a row at one
point and led 26-0 after the first
quarter.
It was 29-0 before the Miners got
their first point of the game and the
Streaks led 42-3 at the half. Brenita
Grant *led Sebring with 11 points,
Crumity added 10 and freshman
Hannah Shoop scored seven.
, "(Fort Meade) was just out-
manned tonight," Sampson said.

Sebring rallies to

knock off Hardee
By AUKUEE DANIELS
News-Sun correspondent,
WAUCHULA A cool but intense
Friday night ended with a victory for the
Sebring Blue Streaks in a nail-biting, fourth-
quarter comeback for a 55-53 win over the
Hardee Wildcats.
The Streaks started out slow and fell
behind early in Wildcat territory. Hardee
seemed to be doing everything right and hit-
ting on all cylinders as the
home team ended the first quar- ebrin
ter with a 20-15 lead. 55
The Streaks started the sec-
ond quarter strong as they Hardee
marched up and down the'
court, scoring and stopping the
Wildcats. But Terry Reddin of
Hardee was determined not to let the lead slip
away as he fired in back-to-back shots to
spark the Wildcats, who walked into halftime
with a 34-29 cushion.
The Blue Streaks came out with a new atti-
tude to start the second half, and hard defense
and on-target shooting gave Sebring its first
lead of the night at 42-40 with 5:11 left in the
third quarter.
It soon became 'a, tug-of-war game as

RALLIES
Continued from IE
Sebring's Blake Sanders (10
points) and Robbie Jones of
Hardee exchanged 3-pointers.
Both teams were giving and
taking the lead, but the Streaks
gave up four unanswered
points and Hardee rolled into
the fourth quarter with a 46-42
advantage.
Sensational Sebring junior
Kyle Hoffner, wlho had 20
points and eight rebounds,
knocked down two free throws
to bring the Streaks within five
points with only 4:28 left in the
fourth quarter. With three min-
utes to go, the Streaks went into
a hurry-up offense and attacked
on defense.
The Blue Streaks were down
by two and searching for some
points when A.C. Wilson stole
the ball and drove down court
to find Luke Birge in the comer
for a clutch 3-pointer to give
the Streaks a 52-51 lead with
just*under two minutes left in
the game.
"That's my shot," Birge said.
"When I felt it leave my hands,
I knew it was in."
Sanders took a trip to the line
and hit two free throws to add
to the lead, but the Wildcats
refused to rive up as Arnold


NIGHT
Continued from IE
"They came here and played
hard anid we came here and
played hard. Everybody got to
play and we looked a lot better
than we did (Thursday) night.
Everybody was more relaxed
tonight."
Of course, the 20-0 season
will mean nothing if the
Streaks don't keep winning. --
Ultimately, the Streaks are hop- I '
ing to go 27-0, which is what it i -
will take to win the state chamin- --
pionship, but the first step is to '
first make it to 22-0 and win the "
District 10-4A tournament they
host this week. .
Sebring earned a bye in the
tournament and will play k
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. against .
either Hardee or Avon Park.
"As far as this season is con-
cerned, it's over," Sampson
said. "We start next week and i
everybody is 0-0. You've got to
win two games to be a champi- _
on and host a regional game at L
home. That's our goal right
now, to be ready to play Avon '.-' DF.i .r[SEL [ N..
Park or Hardee, whichever one Brenita Grant, who led Sebring with 11 points, drives in for layu
it might be." Friday night.

Southern anglers like you
and I are exposed to signifi-
cantly more UVA and UVB
than those in northern regions
because solar radiation increas-

are to the equator.
Those fishermen in, other
parts of the country are also.at

doors, we need to do all we
can to minimize that risk.
Covering our skin with protec-

plenty of sunscreen where the
clothing doesn't cover the skin
is just common sense.
Another necessary step is to
visit a dermatologist every six
months if you spend a lot of
time outdoors. If you have any
pre-cancerous growths on your
ears,'face or neck, the doctor
can painlessly freeze them off,
eliminating future problems.
I am glad to report that my
