SEBRING Though there
were no critical injuries sus-
tained Thursday when an acci-
dent occurred at the intersection
of U.S. 27 and Lake Josephine
Drive, the incident raised the
question of whether a traffic
light is needed there.
According to Florida
'Highway Patrol, Jeremy
Lawson, of Sebring, was driv-
ing his 2002 Ford Explorer west
across the southbound lanes of
U.S. 27 from the median as
Carmen Zuniga, of Venus, was
southbound on U.S. 27 in the
outside lane driving an 1983


Chevrolet pickup. Lawson
drove into Zuniga's path,; caus-
ing her to swerve onto the
shoulder, an unsuccessful
attempt to avoid an accident.'
Her vehicle rolled after col-
liding with Lawson's passenger
side, coming to a stop as it
crashed into the side of Jayvee
Convenience Store owner Vijay
Patel's parked Nissan Armada.
Both were transported, to
Sebring hospitals Lawson to
Florida Hospital Heartland
Medical Center and Zuniga to
Highlands Regional Medical
Center neither with any,
known major injuries.
"I was by the gas pump at the


time and would have been in
my truck when this happened if
it had been 10 seconds later."
Patel said, whose vehicle had to
be moved in order for rescuers
to open Zuniga's door to get to
her.
It is likely that if his Nissan
weren't parked where it was,
the collision would have come
to a stop against the gas pumps.
causing serious injuries and
damage.
Patel, Who has been operat-
ing the convenience store for
eight and a half years, said that
he has seen numerous accidents
at thai Inleriection.
"I've seen at least 15 to 20,"


he said. 'There is great public
concern for a traffic light from
the neighborhood. I remember
three fatalities in the last four or
five years myself."
Next door to Patel. T&T
Brokerage Co. Inc. owner Tom
Sabol, who has done business in
the same strip mall for seven
years likewise recalled a signif-
icant number of accidents at the
intersection.
"Trucks come barreling
down the highway at 75 to 80
mph," he said. "We're lucky to
have a caution light; but it does-
n't do much good."
Residents of the Lake
Josephine area echoed these


sentiments.
"'Too many people rush
through that intersection,"
Karen Smith said. "Sometimes
there are three or four cars in
the median trying to get across
at the same time, especially in
the early morning and around 5
p.m."
As a mother of five, she is
very concerned and said that
even though her oldest daughter
has a learner's permit,, she
won't allow her to cross the
highway there. "It's just too
dangerous," she explained.

Part of the need for more deputies comes from
revamping the zone coverage in the county.
Up until now, the sheriff's office has one deputy

thousand people with more than 1,000 square miles in
the county. Each shift would have at least one "ro% er"

SEBRING Bob Delaney has lived at
the edge of Washington Heights since 1992
but didn't become active in the community
until a section of Highlands Avenue's name
was to change.
A white man in his late-70s, Delaney
opposed renaming a section, of the road to
Martin Luther Kiing Avenue, a change that
occurred about a year ago.
"I was offended by that," he said,
explaining that he and other citizens were
upset that Highlands County wanted to
rename a portion of Highlands Avenue.
"They never told us what they're going to
do."
Delaney also was offended that another
street was being changed to honor the civil
rights activist when "streets all over the
country" were already so named.
So, Delaney, a retired Miami school
teacher and former lawn mower repair
shop owner, began attending the New
Washington Heights Concerned Citizens
meetings to voice his opinion.
For somebody who grew up in an era
when African Americans were called
negroes, Delaney took a step forward in
attending a meeting where the majority of
the attendees are black from a community
where whites are the minority.
As a teacher and businessman, he was
exposed to black students and employed
black mechanics. He served black cus-
tomers and visited with the black parents
of his pupils.
"My opinion then was that the average
black man didn't give a damn," Delaney

At minimum, Benton \would like to haie one deputy

like every squad to have both a tracking and drug dog.

called, are based on' road connections, population den-

said, explaining a misconception he held
about those he once kept at arms length
whom he now calls neighbors. "My think-
ing then compared to now was entirely dif-
ferent. ... When I grew up, it Was common-
ly accepted that when 5 o' clock came the
blacks would get on the bus and go home."
To be sure, Delaney said he never had
problems with members of the black com-
munity but he never considered them a part
of his community, nor he of theirs.
So, when Concerned Citizens selected
Delaney to be their spokesperson in mat-
ters involving elected officials, he was
modestly surprised but accepted the task.
"I buried that," he said of his original
reason for being at the meetings, the MLK
name change. "That wasn't important any-

AVON PARK In 1993 the
Florida legislature created the
Heartland Rural Health
Network, one of nine through-
out the state.
The networks are designed to
get together with providers,
both public and private, to,
develop a system of good qual-
ity, readily accessible health
care for rural residents who are
otherwise isolated and out of
reach.
The networks all Work close-
ly with the Florida Department
of Health and receive funding
from the state's office of Rural
Health.,
The' Heartland Rural Health
Network is comprised of 25
members, which includes six
hospitals, five health depart-
ments, a number of community
health centers, some individual
physicians, and mental health
and substance abuse profession-
als, as well as a few community
organizations. For instance,
both Highlands and Hardee
county commissions have
signed onto the network.
It directly serves Highlands,
Hardee and DeSoto counties.
Recently the Heartland net-
work joined forces with the
Florida Heartland Consortia for
the Homeless, a separate organ-
ization.
That means that in addition
to rural populations, the net-
work now also serves the home-
less population in the three
counties.
J. Rudy Reinhardt,. executive
director of the Heartland Rural
'Health Network, reminds peo-
ple that the term homeless
encompasses a broad range of
individuals and families. In
fact, he says, a lot of the home-
less are children.
The key factor in being con-
sidered homeless, is to not have
a permanent residence, he said.
There are homeless people who
stay with friends or family
members, or may be living in a

leaders have been invited, to the
Florida Capitol. '
Alumni from Leadership
Highlands leaders training pro-
gram have arranged to take a
group of local government,
business and community lead-
ers to Tallahassee on March 30
and 31 to meet with legislators,
promote Highlands County and
lobby for its concerns.
Jeff Carlson, president of the
Sebring City Council, made- a
public announcement Tuesday
at the county commission meet-
ing. '
He said organizers of the
event have arranged for a large
conference room on the top
floor of the Florida Capitol,
with refreshments and inivita-
tions to all legislators.
Local legislators are
Representative Denise
Grimsley (District 77), Senator
J.D. Alexander (District 17),
and Representative Baxter
Troutman (District 66).
Carlson said members of

Bea Walsh, registered nurse and clinical integration coordinator for Heartland Rural Health Network,
sits inside the 32 foot outreach vehicle the network uses to provide better health care access to citizens in
.rural areas, or the homeless. In addition to screening clients, Walsh can make referrals or answer ques-
tions about Medicaid, state disability, or food stamp applications. She can also help answer questions
about the new Medicare D prescription drug program. The network recreational vehicle has comfortable
seating, and an enclosed office for privacy.,


FEMA trailer. It does not mean,
in other words, that a person has
to be living in a cardboard box
in an orange grove.
Reinhardt points out that the
numbers of homeless in
Highlands; Hardee and DeSoto
counties have risen substantial-
ly since the hurricane season of
2004.
Actual numbers are still
being tabulated from the recent
one day survey taken by the
Homeless Coalition, but
Reinhardt said the estimate is
that homelessness in the three
counties has increased by 366
percent since the hurricanes.
"It's really urgent,"
Reinhardt said, "to make sure
the homeless get health care.
(Our role) is to get providers to
the table."
Kelly Jean Johnson, health
planning director for the net-


work, explained, that getting
health care to the homeless, or
rural citizens who are isolated
from regular care, is a matter of
logical public policy, which
benefits everyone.
Otherwise, she said, "people
end up in the emergency room
for their health *care, which
costs all of us. Our program
helps the entire community by
providing a (lower cost),safety
net with access to primary care
givers."
This is especially true, she
said, because so many of the
homeless have physical, mental
or substance abuse problems,
and many also require dental
care.
Reinhardt and Johnson want
the community to know that the
Heartland Rural Health
Network has recently received
several grants.


The funding has allowed the
network to convert a 32 foot
recreational vehicle into a trav-
eling assessment mobile.
Staffed by Bea Walsh, a reg-
istered nurse, the vehicle will
travel Highlands, Hardee, and
DeSoto counties five days a
.week. It will stop at places like
the Wal-Mart parking lot, or the
Heartland Career Connection
System's One Stop Center,
Labor Finders, or the New


Leadership Highlands first
thought of the idea to go to
Tallahassee during a Leadership
Highlands board of directors
meeting. The group arranged a
trip and took 15 people.
"We had a very successful
trip to Tallahassee during the
2005 Legislative session and
noticed what a big production
another county was putting on
up there," Carlson said, "so we
thought, this would be a great
opportunity for us to highlight
our county and bring awareness
to the issues that matter most to
our residents."
He hopes to get more people
to go this year. Annett Bus
Lines has arranged a package
deal for people who want to go.
It will leave at 6 a.m. Thursday,
March 30.
Some others may carpool if
they can't leave as early,
Carlson said.
The even will also include an
event in the courtyard between
the historic and new -capitol
buildings, Carlson said. Since it
will follow two weeks after the
annual, 12 Hours of Sebring


Jokaroha to play at state park


SEBRING Jokaroha, a
contemporary Christian band,

"Music in the Park" event at

The concert will be from 7-9

just $5 per person (accompa-
nied kids age 16 and under are
admitted free of charge). Bring

nic area.
Picnic baskets are welcome.


race, the plan includes having
cars from the Sebring
International Raceway on dis-
play, as well as community
organizations, such as Keep
Highlands County Beautiful.
The second day will give par-
ticipants opportunities to sit in
on legislative meetings before
lunch and departing for home.
Carlson said changes in lob-
bying laws have prompted
many counties to cancel their
legislative days. Highlands
County, however, will go
ahead.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said timing for the event
could not be better. It's two
days after the Florida
Association of Counties will
have it's legislative day. For
some officials, he said, it would
only be one trip.
To reserve a seat on Annett
Bus Lines, call Diane at (863)
655-6226. Package prices vary
depending on the whether the
room is single or double. Prices-
range from $125 to $175 if you
ride the bus or $65 to $115 per
person if you choose to drive
yourself.


Testament Mission (which is
the only homeless shelter in
Highlands County).
Walsh will conduct physical,
psycho-social, and substance
abuse assessments. Then she
will make arrangements for
care with the proper medical
personnel, from a list of
providers who have volunteered
to help.
Medical care is provided on a
sliding scale. But even the low-
est cost, $15, may be out of the
range of some people.
This is why Reinhardt also
wants homeless people to know
about another grant the network
has received, which provides.
for 500 health care vouchers.
But be warned, he said. The
grant is only good to June, and
there are only 500 vouchers
available. He recommends ,the
homeless don't wait to take
advantage of the program..'{
In addition to general assess-
ments for the homeless, anyone
can get free blood pressure
screening at the mobile.
Free HIV screenings are also
available. The test is one which
,shows immediate results. While
the program is geared to help-
ing the homeless, and rural..,
minorities, anyone may get an .
HIV screening.

The homeless tend to be
invisible, Reinhardt said. That
is why he is hoping the commu- .
nity will help get the % ord out
to those people who can benefit.

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.

New York man to compete in


endurance race on hand-cycle


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Gearing up for the Bike Sebring
12/24 Hours, Bill Schwarz has spent the winter
spinning on his indoor cycle trainer.
On Saturday Schwarz will'join an estimated
100 other cyclists in a test of spirit, physical
strength, and mental fortitude.
An information technologist at the University
of 'Albany in New York, Schwarz will likely be
the only competitor on pedaling with his hands
for 24 hours.
Candy Smith, event coordinator, said 131 peo-
ple pre-registered for the race which includes a
contestant from Canada, one from France, a Racq
Across America team (of unknown origin), and
about 30 recumbent bicycles.
"We're definitely way up," Smith said, recall-
ing last year's 110 entrants. "The excitement is
growing."
Schwarz has been ultra-cycling since his 20s,
when he made three transcontinental rides.
"I didn't say right away, 'Oh, this is something
I want to do,'" he said, explaining that the chal-
lenge of pushing the envelope drew him in.
Until 2003, Schwarz has been riding a standard
bicycle but over the course of 20 years he's been
fighting peripheral neuropathy.
"I started feeling something in my feet,"
Schwarz said, explaining the autoimmune dis-
ease. "Eventually, it progressed up to my knees. I
can still walk but my legs have atrophied. It hap-
pened gradually."
It happened so gradually that he continued rid-
ing a standard bicycle but his ankles weakened to
a point that he couldn't get his shoes out of his
special cycling pedals.
"I started falling over a lot because I couldn't
clip out," Schwarz said. "I couldn't kick my heals
to get out of the pedals."
By this point in 2002, he also lost movement in
his toes and sought alternate ways to ride.
"It was a natural transition," he said of switch-
ing to his hand-and-arm powered, three-wheeled
recumbent cycle.
In 2003 he attended the now-defunct
Armstrong Sports Hand-Cycling Camp near
Tampa and soon was competing in ultra-cycling
events again.
On Saturday, he'll be on his $3,000 TopEnd
hand-cycle with $600 after market wheels.
"So much of ultra-cycling is mental," Schwarz
said. "It's taken for granted that' you have to
ride."
To prepare his body he puts his bike on an
indoor trainer and spins about three hours, per
day.
He'lle[ r coals to prepare hi. nmind.
-That s'the tougherstpart. keeping _our focus,"
Schwarz said. I'll'probabl ha\e a goal in mind.
I won't even try to vocalize it. I also will want to

William 'Bill' Schwarz, of Albany, N.Y., rides his
TopEnd hand-cycle in the 2005 New York City
Marathon. An ultra-cyclist afflicted with peripher-
al neuropathy who made the switch from standard
bicycles to his, hand-powered trike in 2003 will be
in Sebring Saturday, where he'll compete in the
24-Hour cycling event at Sebring Regional
Airport.
have backup goals in mind.... Ultimately, my
goal is to stay on the bike as much as I can."
But if he can't, Schwarz can take advantage of
the rest stops in Frostproof or at the Sebring
International Raceway, which will be stocked
with nutrients, fluids, and electrolytes.
"You have to keep track of what you're con-
suming," Schwarz said, explaining that it's easy
to consume too much or too little food during
extended physical exertion. "You have to keep in
mind that you are allowed to take a break and get
yourself together, refresh your body and refresh
your mind."
Schwarz no longer competes for the top finish,'
as some contestants will during this race. Rather,
he's competing against the elements and himself.
Schwarz recommends being flexible in the ride
to allow for unexpected fatigue or mental
anguish.
To finish 24-hour rides --he's completed four
plus two marathons he divvies up the race into
bite-sized chunks of time, riding one hour at a,
time.
Quitting shouldn't be an option though.
"If, you quit, you'll feel good at the time
:because you're taking your body out. of the ele-
merit," Schwarz said. -But then you'll:have allot
of time to think about it. It might not feel so good
then."


Bike Sebring 12/24 Hours
What is it? It's an endurance bicycle race consisting of two categories the
12-hour race and the 24-hour race. The latter also serves as a qualifying race for
the Race Across America. Hopefuls have to complete more than 400 miles in the
full-day event.
When is it? Racing begins at 6:30 a.m. Saturday and ends either at 6:30 p.m.
or 6:30 a.m. the next day.
Where is it? Well, the races begin and end at Sebring International Raceway
but there are three loops involved the century route to Frostproof and back, the
short loop from the track to Lorida and back, and the 3.7 miles road course.
How much does it cost? To watch is free. To compete in the race, $75.
Do they need volunteers? Yes.
Whom do I call? For more information call Mark Andrews, 385-3936 or send
him an e-mail at info@bikesebring.org.

Editor's note: The News-Sun

who served as vice chairman in
the past year, succeeds Ben
McGee.
Whitaker, commissioner
from district 4, is beginning the
third year of his first term as a
county commissioner.
Crutchfield, from district 2, is
also beginning his third year on
the board.
Nominations of Whitaker

Tuesday by Cecil Skipper. The


board unani-

Crutchfield that

the pleasure of
the board." This
includes Hue E.

county attorney; Hayward
Davis as county prosecutor;
Anna Church as welfare direc-

Students 'dig' the soil tunnel


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The
Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District's new
educational tool has been a hit
with both teachers and students
alike.
Highlands County Natural
Resources Specialist Jennifer
Donze has visited over half of
the public elementary schools
in the county and some private
ones as well. More than 700


students have experienced the
soil tunnel.
The soil tunnel is a mobile,
innovative and interactive
teaching aide designed for
grade 'school audiences. The
emphasis of the program is to
promote environmental educa-
tion in a unique, hands-on
approach. Children can view
the world below the ground sur-
face by crawling through the
tunnel. Once inside, roots and


carrots dangle overhead while
side panels display soil hori-
zons, well, septic system, and
gopher tortoise burrow with
insects and animals that live
inside. Donze presents a
dynamic interactive environ-
mental and life science focused
lesson.

uling a visit should call Donze

Tickets going on sale



for Red & White Ball


By PHIL ATFINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Tickets for the
annual American Red Cross
Red & White Ball will-go on
sale Wednesday, two month
before the evept. .
The event moved to April 15
so it could be at Harder Hall
this year and help open the
newly renovated 1920s hotel.
In the past, the event has
coincided with St.. Valentine's
Day, but also competed with
several other events that night.
Art Harriman, director of the
Highlands County American
Red Cross Service Center in
Sebring, said anything raised in
Highlands County, stays in
Highlands County, especially at
the Red & White Ball. The
event features dinner, dancing
to live music, a silent auction
with items donated by celebri-
ties, local residents and area
businesses, and special recogni-
tion for people who have helped
the American Red Cross
through the year.
Ticket orders are starting to
line up, Harriman said. Single
tickets are $75; couples are
$145.
Men's attire is black-tie
optional, and while wbmen are
encouraged to wear shades of
white and red, "any color is
acceptable," Harriman said.

Membership elects
PRECO directors

Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA Peace
River Electric Cooperative
(PRECO) held its annual dis-
trict meetings last week, all
three incumbent directors ran
unopposed and retained their
offices. PRECO, a Touchstone
Energy(r) Cooperative, is
owned by its consumers and is:
governed by a board of direc-
tors that is elected by the mem-
bership to -serve three-year
terms.
Maurice Henderson, District
5, Wauchula East; Sam Rawls,
District 2, Wauchula West; and
Harold Schatschneider, District
8, Ellenton, were re-elected
with no opposition and will
continue to serve on the coop-
erative's board.
These well-attended district
meetings were conducted in
accordance with PRECO's
bylaws and each had a quorum,
determined by district size, in
attendance.
Peace River Electric, formed
in 1940, serves more than
30,000 members in 10 central
Florida counties, including
Highlands County.

When: Ball begins at 6 p,m.; dinner scheduled for 7
p.m j. . --.
Where; Harder Hall Resort and Spa, 3300 26ffview

Tickets: $75 for singles, $145 for couples
Information: Call 386-4440 or 386-4443 for tickets,
or visit the Highlands County American Red Cross
Service Center at 1430 Lakeview Drive, Sebring.


The idea, he said, is to come
out and have a great time.
The event starts at 6 p.m.
with dinner scheduled for 7
p.m., provided by the new five-
star chef at Harder Hall. Hotel
owners hope to make Harder
Hall the permanent home for
the ball, Harriman said,
The hotel, Harriman said,
will have rooms available if
people have driven a long way
or just want to spend the night.
GrooVus jazz band will
entertain for the third straight
year, with the addition of local
saxophonist Gary Johnson.
This year, Harriman has
already received several
celebrity donations, including a
dress from Sharon Stone. He's
still looking for local donations
and both event and table spon-
sorships.
"Premier" table sponsorships
are $1,200 for a 12-seat table.
"Red' table sponsorships are
$950 for a 10-seat table.
"White" table sponsorships are


$750 for an eight-seat table.
This is the local area's
chance to build disaster relief
funds before the hurricane sea-
son, which has helped tremen-
dously in the past, he said.
Disaster help is free,
Harriman said, thanks to
Americans' donations.
For this fiscal year, which
began July 1, 2005, Harriman
has served so many local needs,
his disaster budget is 98 percent
spent.
Donations help a lot, and his
office gets one-third of needs
met from United Way of
Central Florida, Highlands
County. It helps pay for the
local Red Cross office, equip-
ment and supplies, but it also
pays for emergency disaster
assistance to people who have
lost their homes to fire, flood or
hurricanes.
Harriman plans to have more
information about local, Red
Cross activities at the Red &
White Ball soon.

SEBRING Sandra
Rankhorn, media specialist at
Sebring High School, wants
parents and other interested
adults to know that Florida now
has a go-to Web site designed
for children, teenagers, parents,
teachers, principals and other
media specialists.
Conceived by Florida's
Department of Education, and
created and administered by the
University of Central Florida,
Sunlink is a kindergarten.
S.through 12th grade union cata-
log, which links every public
school library within the state.
That means it has a database
of 1.6 million titles from 2,595
public schools. Public school
students may borrow books
from other school libraries.
Within the county, those books
can be delivered fairly quickly.
Sunlink also has links to
more than 23,000 Web sites.
For example, there are links to
Ask Jeeves and Britannica.
There is also'a search engine,
so a student can type in a sub-
ject of interest, and be directed
to a number of Web sites where
answers to questions on that
subject can be found.
But that is just the beginning,
Rankhom said.
There are also daily specials,
like a daily buzz word, a daily
news quiz, an analogy of the
day, Student Achievement Test
question of the day, astronomy
picture of the day, a how-stuff-
works question of the day,
sports trivia, sci-tech on televi-
sion, and much more.
Students can take mini
quizzes, or word challenges,
and then find the correct
answer. The answers come with
explanations as to why the right
answer is correct, as well as
why the wrong answer misses
the mark.
Ever:y Ii nkl, hi s been pre-
screened and is safe for all ages.


The combination of.fact, rel-
evance and lively presentation
make the site appealing to stu-
dents and adults as well.
There are links for teachers
and principals that present bre-
ative ideas, as well as cutting-
edge research.


Rankhorn herself enjoys
checking in regularly to see the
astronomy picture of the day.
"When the kids are bored,
it's a good place to go," sheik
said.

At 78, he still uses antiquated

more to a generational gap than
a racial divide.

Delaney said, discussing his
budding relationship with
Robert Saffold, chairman of
Concerned Citizens. "It's a rap-
port I feel I have, maybe, with
Bob. I don't know how they
feel about me. ... They're good
people and good things are hap-
pening in this little town."
Saffold said Delaney blends
well with the community and
brings a more diverse back-
ground, stemming from his



CONCERN
Continued from 1A
involving a resident from a
trailer park on the west side of
the highway who was struck
while attempting to cross over
to the convenient store, many
residents wondered how many
fatalities and/or wrecks would
have to occur' before a fully
functional traffic light would be
deemed necessary.
First Baptist Church of Lake
Josephine youth pastor Allen
Altvater said, "I know people-
have voiced concerns. They lit
it up which helps but still
a man got hit."',
Altvater -pointed out that
there seems to be a lot of confu-
sion about who has the right of
way in different situations
(Lawson was charged with fail-
ure to yield the right of way in
Thursday's accident). His main
concern is the senior population
in the area.
"It's not that I like the idea of
having more lights I dread
every time I have to go to Avon
Park because of all the lights
you have to go through," he
said. "But there comes a time
when you have to put safety
over convenience."
He and the others inter-
viewed agreed that a light is
-- necessary and that the answer


teaching days.
"I think we've been a cure
for so many things he's been
dealing with," Saffold said. "It
has given him an insight on
how the community feels. It's
not necessarily how he per-
ceived it before he came to the
meetings."
Delaney, Saffold, and about a
dozen members of the commu-
nity, who are trying to reverse
some 60 years of neglect to
restore the once-vibrant
Washington Heights neighbor-
hood, dutifully attend the week-
ly meetings at 7 p.m. Thursday
at the Boys & Girls Club.
At these gatherings, where
lately the hot topics are Phase II
of the Sebring Parkway and a
lack of young adult participa-
tion, Delaney mostly listens.
But when he does have
something to say, it's usually to
complement the group's goals


isn't changing the speed limit
and putting up cautionary lights
or signs.
But getting a traffic signal
isn't as simple as some think.
According to information pro-
vided by the Florida
Department of Transportation
Public Information Director
Cindy Clemmons-Adente, the
cost for a signal there would be
$200,000 -, not including
installation.
Additionally, it is not the city
or county, but the Florida
Department of Transportation,
that has to approve installation
of a traffic light.
A study must be done of the
intersection to determine the
volume of traffic on the side
streets. There must be a mini-
.mum number of, 105 vehicles
every hour consistently, or 53
vehicles per hour with a delay
of over 60 seconds (the amount
of time it takes each vehicle to
enter the highway or cross it).
Also considered are the num-
ber of "correctable crashes."
Clemmons-Adente explained
that these are crashes which
could have been avoided by a
traffic signal. She further
explained that .the FDOT
receives what are referred to as
"long form" crash reports
which do not include every
crash. "Thege forms include
injuries, significant vehicle-
damage, or fatalities not


and suggest ways to obtain
them.
One week he suggested find-
ing a lawyer who might repre-
. sent the organization in its fight
to get a pedestrian bridge from
South Highlands Avenue to
Sebring High School when the
parkway is extended, severing
the highly traveled road that
intersects U.S. 27 south of
Sebring.
Later, he suggested a
spokesman as an alternative
when no action was taken on
finding a pro bono attorney.
Delaney left the meeting as that
designated person.
"Something's gotta be done
to help those people who want
to help themselves," Delaney
said, sitting in the sun room
next to his groves. "They're
only a handful of people but
they're good people. ... Never
one time have I heard, 'the
whites get this.' There's no prej-


fender-benders," she said.
She also said that the depart-
ment conducted a Crash
Location Review of 25 signal-
ized intersections along U.S. 27
in Highlands County in June
2004. Which revealed that for
the years 2001 through 2003
there was a total of nine left
turn crashes at U.S. 27 and
Lake Josephine Drive. This,
according to her information,
was the fourth lowest number
of crashes of the 25 intersec-
tions reviewed (the highest was
34).
Accurate statistics, according
to Highlands County Sheriff's
Deputy J.P. Fane, are hard to
really pin down. "There is such
a complicated method of com-
ing up with a compilation of
data because there are so many
fingers in the pie," he said.
"What the FHP reports and
what we report are very differ-
ent." Consequently, it can be
challenging to make changes
like adding a signal.
Concerned citizens can
request a signal warrant study
from the FDOT by calling (863)
519-7265. "All it takes is one
phone call to initiate a study,"
Clemmons-Adente said.
Meanwhile, Fane suggested
driving with caution, slowing
down at intersections with yel-
low lights, and paying attention
to speed limits to improve safe-
ty.


udice or bias. They're
respectable people."
Delaney considers downtown
to be the area surrounding
Martin Luther King Boulevard
and Lemon Street, where he'd
like to see "a good soul food
restaurant a nice, decent,
respectable place."
He hopes the city and

grocery store, dry cleaners to-
come to what he calls the heart
of Washington Heights.
"I guess I had to grow up,"
Delaney said of his recent, sub-
tle transformation.
But he's still offended by the
few blocks of Martin Luther


King Jr. Avenue, a road which
also bears the names Powerline
aiid Highlands.
"I think it's a dishonest way
to show gratitude for, what he
did," Delaney said. "I think it's
a joke."
Saffold said, "I think this has
something to do with MLK's
mission."

PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton demonstrates how a new set of zones for deputies to cover will
divide up geographic areas based on road connections, population and calls for service. By having a
deputy for each zone, she can avoid them having to return to U.S. 27 to reach each new call in their zone.

sity and number of calls for
service.
For example, there are more
zones in the northwest than the
southeast, because of popula-
tion. However, the otiuth end of
the county has four zones radi-'
ating from Lake Placid, taking
full advantage of road systems
to prevent having to return to
U.S. 27 to answer another call.
By not having to navigate
around lakes and with less area
and people to cover, deputies
should be able to reduce
response times, Benton said.
More tools
Another step in' that process,
Benton said, is getting informa-
tion to road deputies with in-car
,computers like many, agencies
use.

ence call and walk-through of

Italian family shares recipe for success


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent ,
SEBRING Butchers by
trade, Steve and Michael
Panetta have more than 60
years of experience. And they
believe their Italian heritage is
the secret ingredient at
Panetta's Delicatessen &
Catering Co.
The Italian deli has been their
family tradition for more than
100 years. Steve and Diane
Panetta have been in Sebring
for the past three years, moving
from south Florida. With some
coaxing, Michael joined his
family and moved to Sebring in
August last year from Albany,
N.Y., where he operated a retail
.meat and seafood delicatessen.
They purchased the former
Hardee's restaurant and totally
renovated it for their deli-
catessen. It has seating for 40-
-50 people.
Opening the door of the
recently renovated restaurant
reveals appetizing displays in
glass cases of pastries and spe-
cial salads.' Their butcher shop
offers beautiful ground chuck,
round, patties, rib eyes, sand-
wich steaks, chuck steaks,
roasts, top round steak and
stewing beef. Their homemade
Italian sausage, meatballs and
beef burgers are ready to grill.
Another case holds specialty
meats like prosciutto, capicollo,
some salamis, plus wheels of
cheese like pecorino and
iromano that they will grate the
cheese. Or a person can pick up
their fresh red sauce by the pint
:or quart, mozzarella balls, or
other ingredients and take them
home and prepare it.
Cindy Ward, of Avon Park,
said the food is excellent. "I

meats, cheeses, tomatoes and
olive oils. I'm absolutely
thrilled they're here," she said.
If a person plans to sit down
and eat, there's regular or super
sizes on a variety of different
breads. Choose roast beef,
turkey breast, pork roast, house
Italian (with eggplant, fresh
mozzarella and roasted red pep-
pers) or their Italian mix (sala-
mi, capicollo, pepperoni, pro-
volone) corned beef brisket,
smoked ham, cooked ham, or
turkey, chicken and tuna salad.
The house burgers are 100 per-
. cent beef in a four-, eight- or
12-ounce serving.


If anyone wants a hot sand-
wich, try steak and cheese, ham
and cheese, pastrami and-
cheese, corned beef and cheese.
There's Italian sausage and pep-
pers, meatball, chicken or egg-
plant parmigiana sandwiches.
Or try the $3.99 stuffed breads
of sausage and peppers, pepper-
oni and mozzarella, broccoli,
sausage and mozzarella,
spinach and provolone or meat-
balls and mozzarella. The pasta
dishes range from $5.99 to
$7.99. Choose from mouthwa-
tering baked ziti, lasagna with
meat or spinach, lasagna, home-
made brapioli, chicken or egg-


plant parmigiana. And it can all
be topped off with classic
tiramisu, sfogliatelle, cannoli or
spumoni.
"We can cater a complete hot
or cold buffet for any, kind of
party: A birthday, graduation,
anniversary, wedding or office
party," said Michael. His wife
Diane assists with the catering.
Panetta's Delicatessen &
Catering Co. is at 1520
Lakeview Drive (just south of
Kenilworth Lodge on
Kenilworth Boulevard). To
place an order, call 382-2330 or
fax 382-3135. Use their con-
venient pickup window. Hours
are 7 a.m. 'to 7 ..p.m. Monday

Local Sprint store to become


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The local
Sprint company has received its
new name: "Embarq."
Sprint Public Affairs
Manager Jeff Mechlin said the
new logo in the shape of a
green Stealth fighter will be
installed sometime between
March and June, the second
financial quarter of this year.
"I'm excited about it,"
Mechlin said. "It will bring
some localness back to our


company to service our cus-
tomers."
The new Sprint store in
Fountain Village Plaza at U.S.
27 and Howey Road already
has helped, he said, by provid-
ing a customer-oriented busi-
ness with common-sense
approaches to telecommunica-
tions needs. It allows represen-
tatives to tailor services to peo-
ple with various "bundles" of
service.
Those include local long-dis-
tance services, high speed


'It will bring some localness back

to our company to service our

customers.'
JEFF MECHLIN, Sprint public affairs manager


Internet, and Dish entertain-
ment network.
Embarq's new name and logo
are meant to signal the way the
company will do business: An


aggressive and innovative next-
generation local communica-
tions company, according to
Daniel R. Hesse, designated as
the company's chief executive'


officer.
The-new company, officially
known as Embarq Corporation,
will-begin using the name and
logo broadly in the marketplace
after formally, separating from
Sprint Nextel, but plans to use
the name and logo on a limited
basis before the separation is
completed.
Embarq will trade on the
New York Stock Exchange
under the ticker symbol "EQ."
Upon separation from Sprint
Nextel, the company expects to


have approximately 20,000
employees, approximately $6
billion in annual revenues, to
rank among the Fortune 500,
and to serve as the fifth largest
local communications company
in the United States, based on
the company's 7.4. million
access lines as of Sept. 30,
2005.

records sold, amassing 111 hits;
15 gold records and four gold

Waliz," the timeless classic that
moved more than 10 million
copies on its own and simulta-
neously reached the No. 1 spot
on the pop. country and rh thrn
and blues charts.
During the "Golden Days of

$100 million
compensation
slated for growers
Special to the Neu -..,',,
LAKELAND U.S.
Secretary of Agriculture Mike
Johanns has announced another
$100 million in compensation
funds are available to Floridi
citrus growers %\ ho lost trees to
citrus canker.
The announcement came
Wednesday, accompanied b\
applause from officials %ith the
Florida Citrus Mutual. the
state's largest citrus grower
organization with niore thtn
10,000 members.
Johanns said the USDA is
working to compensate Florida
producers for. losses they
incurred'before the federal gov-
ernment stopped its eradication
program. The 2004 and 2005
hurricanes have forced a new
approach, he said. Storms
spread citrus canker so far that
the federal government deter-
mined on Jan. 10, 2006, that the
eradication program no longer
worked as a scientifically feasi-
ble option.
The established program was
modified to stop destroying
healthy trees within 1,900 feet
of an infected tree and to elim-
inate the compensation provi-
sion. Owners of trees destroyed
under the program before Jan.
10 remain eligible for compen-
sation.

Jokaroha performing at Highlands Hammock


The Friends of Highlands
Hammock will host another
"Music in the Park" concert at 7
p.m. Saturday. Jokaroha will be
performing contemporary
Christian and praise and wor-
ship music.
Y o u
might won-
der what
Jokaroha
means. The
band's
unusual
name was
created'
from tak-
ing the first
THE REAL two letters
FLORIDA of each of
the band
Dorothy Harris members,
Jordan
Terrell, 17,
plays the keyboard, guitar and
bass. He sings, along with Katie
Havery, 17, who also plays gui-
tar, bass, and keyboards.
Rodney Havery, 15, is the
drummer and Harry Havery, of
the popular California Toe Jam
Band, is well, let's just say,
somewhat older than the kids.
Don't let their youthful ages
fool you though, because each
of these performers has a lot of
experience. Terrell and Katie
Havery, who both attend
Sebring High School, are also
involved in the music ministry
at Bible Fellowship Church.
Each performs for Youth for
Christ's .Campus Life program
and also participates in the
school's chorus program.
Rodney Havery, the drummer,
is active in band and also plays
drums for the Bible Fellowship
Church's praise team..
Harry Havery, the self-
described "mature member" of
the group, is well known in
Highlands County for his per-
formances with the California
Toe Jam Band, which per-
formed for the park back in
October. He also is the music
director of Bible Fellowship
Church, and continues to men-
tor many young musicians.
This band is one he and wife
Dawn helped form back in
September 2001. Originally
called the Polekatz, the band
formed for the "See you at the
Pole" youth rally at Sebring
Middle School.
In the past few years, the
band's changed instrumentation
and also their name. They cur-
rently play weekly for Bible
Fellowship's Youth Program,
Campus Life and various other
community-oriented events
around the holidays.
This is their second perform-
ance in the park's "Music in the
Park" concert series, as- they
also performed for us last win-
ter. "You can plan on enjoying
contemporary, up-tempo,
praise-type songs," Harry
Havery said, "and also some
favorite worship songs." Harry
Havery shares that this venue is
one of his favorites. "What, a
beautiful place the Hammock is
to sing to our Creator. After all,
we'll be surrounded by his glo-
rious creation."


I couldn't have said it better
myself. Go ahead and plan to
bring your whole family to
experience this contemporary
music with its timeless mes-
sage. It will be especially fun
for your kids, since the per-
formers they see just might be
kids they already know from
school, sports, or other activi-
ties.
Bring your lawn chairs or
blankets, a flashlight, and
maybe a jacket. Fire boxes will


be set up in various locations,
so feel free to bring your
S'mores, supplies. You can also
purchase dinner, desserts,
snacks and drinks at the
Hammock Inn, or bring your
own picnic basket. Park admis-
sion is waived after 6 p.m., and
concert admission is $5 per per-
son. As always, accompanied
kids age 16 and under are
admitted free of charge to the
park's concerts. All proceeds-
from the concert benefits park


improvement projects. Visit the
Friends booth to learn more
about this dynamic group- of
volunteers and the current proj-
ects they are funding.
Dorothy Harris is a park servic-
es specialist at Highlands
Hammock State Park, Sebring.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


The mind


of a child
I wonder how often we
consider the way a child
perceives the things we
say.
Our 8-year-old grandson,
Walter, called one night to
talk with us about various
things. He spoke about his
pastor at church. He shared
about his pastor's sermon
on the wide gate and the
narrow gate.
I told him how happy we
were to know that he lis-
tened closely to what the
pastor had to say.
"Oh, yes. I like my pas-
tor." Then he said, "The
pastor said wide and nar-
row, but I thought about
the one gate being bumpy.,
When you went through
that gate there was a big
hole in the middle and you
would fall .to the devil. But,
the other gate was soft and
there was another hole with
light in it and you would
fall right into Jesus."
He made different analo-
gies saying one was the
road to the devil and the
other was the road that led
to God. Or that it was like
two pools, one pool held
death and the other one
life.
"Enter through the nar-
row gate. For wide is the
gate and broad is the road
that leads to destruction,
and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and
narrow the road that leads
to life, and only a few find
it." (Matthew 7: 13, NIV)
The pastor must have
de eloped a fine sermon as
Walter didn't forget it. But.
- in the active mind of think.
8-year-old, the Holy Spirit
produced images that
helped him meaningfully
grasp the Iruth.
Jesus showed his heart
for children on many occa-
sions. He showed them
love, respect and placed
great value on them.
Mark 10:14 tells us that
Jesus was indignant when
the disciples tried to pre-
vent little children from
coming to him. To be
indignant is when anger-
has been aroused from
something unfair, unworthy
or mean when some
harm has been done to one-
self or others.
Jesus didn't stand for
this treatment of the chil-
dren. Instead he said, "Let
the little children come to
me, and do not hinder
them, for the kingdom of
God belongs to such as
these."
Children are trusting.
When a child opens his
soul and shares his heart,
let's respond as Jesus did.
Let's get down to their
level, face to face and give
them our undivided atten-
tion. Let's show them that
we love, like, respect and
'jlue them for who they
are now not only for who
they are becoming.
Count it a privilege to
glimpse the mind of a child
and value every encounter.
Selah.

a home base for some years,
many of the early great jazz
musicians in Chicago played
with them.
The instrumentation of the
band has never changed, and

inet and sax, tuba, banjo, piano
and drums. In 1973 they added
jazz'vocalit Carol Leigh who

Making paper helps save environment,creates a fun and useful product


Recycling is an important
way that we can help the envi-
ronment by taking items that
would end up in the dump and
using them in the production of
something useful. For that rea-
son today's article includes a
recipe for making homemade
paper.
What you will need:,
One piece of firm fine
mesh screen, to form a "deckle"
screen*
N Masking tape
0 Newspapers
Liquid measuring cup
Measured tablespoon
Shallow roasting pan
about two to four inches deep.
Large mixing bowl
Two to three sheets of used
paper, non glossy
0 Rolling pin
0 Thin spatula or knife.
0 1 cup or more of water
E Liquid starch, optional
N Paper towels
N Electric hand mixer
The procedure:


Tape all sides of the wire
screen with the masking tape so
you have a one inch border of
tape all around. This will be the
"deckle" screen. A deckle is a
frame used in the paper making
process.*
Tear two or three sheets of
used paper (any non glossy
kind) into small pieces about
two inches in diameter until you
have about 2 cups. Put the
pieces in a large mixing bowl.
Add add enough water and
liquid starch to the bowl to
cover the torn paper (about one
cup). Add water and liquid
starch in proportions of 1 tbs. of
liquid starch per 1 cup of water.
Let the paper soak in this mix-
ture for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes of soak-
ing, carefully pour or skim off
any excess water which has not
been absorbed by the paper. (Be
sure to leave some water.) *
Beat the mixture with an
electric mixer until the water,
starch and torn paper reach the


consistency of heavy
cream.
Put the deckle -
over the empty, shal- .
low pan.
Carefully pour
the pulp from the
bowl onto the deckle,
letting the empty
shallow pan catch the
overflow. With your NEWs
hands, spread it out so 1
that the pulp is in an
even, flat layer. WATI
Place the deckle,
with the thin layer of Jennif
pulp on it, face up on -
a few layers of paper
toweling or newspaper. Cover
the deckle with waxed paper.
Using a rolling pin, roll over the
deckle to squeeze out excess
water from the pulp.
You may need to move it
to dry newspaper or paper tow-
eling once or twice more.
When it is as dry as you
can get it, carefully remove the
waxed paper. You may need\ a

THE

er Donze


thin knife or spatula
to coax the waxed
paper off the freshly
made sheet of paper.
Allow the new
paper to dry com-
pletely. This may
take up to two days.
When it is dry,
gently peel the new
paper from the deck-
le.
Continue the fun
by making greeting
cards, book covers
and wall hangings.
You can use pretty


much anything you
want to decorate the finished
sheets; acrylic paint, and left-
over fabric can create unique
designs.
*Alternative: If you're not
familiar with these, the mould
and deckle are a hoop covered
with screen wire. You can make
your own with an embroidery
hoop and a piece of outdoor fur-


nature fabric, the plastic or vinyl holes to allow the water to drip.
material used to cover the cush- The fabric is preferred to screen
ions. Make sure it has little wire because it doesn't rust.

For good clean vegetables grow your own


Chocolate invades Sebring Library


Growing your own food can be fun,
and provide other benefits such as
fresh air, sunshine, mental therapy,
exercise, enjoyment, nutritious fresh
vegetables and economic savings. The
good thing about Florida is that gar-
dens can be 'grown year-round, but
spring is the preferred season. In this
article I will discuss the beginning
steps to growing your own vegetables.
Location Locate the garden near
the house for convenience on a site
close to a source of water, with at least
six hours of direct sunlight.
Soil preparation Soil may be
improved by bringing in topsoil or a
soil mix, or by applying liberal
amounts of organic materials. Spade or

GROWING

SEASON

Gardeners


plow the plot at least three weeks before planting.
Then rework the soil into fine firm seedbed at
planting time. But before doing any of this it
would be wise to take a sample of your soil to the
local extension office to be tested for pH.
Organic matter Most soils benefit from
applications of various forms of organic such as
animal manure, rotten leaves, and compost.
Thoroughly mix liberal amounts of organic in
the soil well in advance to planting, preferably at
least one month before seeding.
Irrigation and drainage Be sure to provide
sufficient drainage of excessive rainfall from
your plot, while arranging for irrigation during
dry periods. Frequency of irrigation depends
upon your soil type; sandy soils need water 2 or
3 times a week. Conserve water by using mulch,
organic matter, and techniques such as drip irri-


gation. Make a slight depression at the
base of plants to hold water' until
absorbed by the soil.
Weed control The primary pur-
pose of cultivation is to control weeds.
Weeds are easier to control when small
by hand-pulling, hoeing, mechanical
cultivation, or mulching.
Insect control Check the garden
twice weekly for insect damage. Spray
only affected plants.
Pesticide precautions Consider
all pesticides as potential poisons. They
should be applied strictly according to
manufacturers, precautions and recom-
mendations. Always wash vegetables
from garden thoroughly before using.
Use pesticides only as necessary to con-


trol insects and diseases and stop applications
during the harvesting season. Apply in early
evening to avoid killing bees .and reducing polli-
nation. Store pesticides in their original contain-
ers. Keep them out of the reach of children and
, other irresponsible persons.


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 questions to:
Master Gardeners, 4509 George Blvd., Sebring,
FL 33872.
Anna R. Coley is a Florida Master Gardener,
affiliated with the University of Florida's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences.


For chocolate lovers, the
Valentine's Day celebration is anoth- i
er chance to enjoy that confection.
Every chocolate lover knows the ,
agonizing choice when presented '
with a box of assorted chocolates.
Authors can be just as many-lay-
ered as a chocolate-nut-peanut butter
crunch bar. One good example is
JoAnna Carl/Eve K. Sandstrom who
writes regional mystery stories set in LIBRAI
Michigan and in Oklahoma.
Sandstrom was born in Oklahoma Car
but has summered more than forty Hess
years near the Michigan resorts of
Saugatuck, Fennville, and Douglas.
Already having had good success with her
Oklahoma mysteries, when her editor asked her
to come up with a new cozy mystery series,
Sandstrom just dunked herself in a bonbon,
truffle, molded chocolate business, setting it in
the West Michigan resorts with their wealthy
summer people.
The luscious "Chocoholic Mysteries" have it
all wrapped up, and under the delicious new.
name of JoAnna Carl. If your figure dictates
that you read more about chocolate than devour
it, we have Carl 's mystery tales available in the
libraries of the Heartland Library Cooperative.
I don't think you're going to be able to contain
yourself with just a nibble when you open the
wrappings and begin "The Chocolate Bear
Burglary."
You're just going to have to indulge yourself
and enjoy one by one: "The Chocolate Cat
Caper;" "The Chocolate Frog Frame-up;" "The

Heartland Workforce
Investment Board, local law
enforcement officials, Florida
Department of Corrections
Circuits 10 and 12 and South
Florida Community College to
develop a program to provide
employment for area ex-offend-
ers at a living wage.
"A part of the puzzle to make
these men and women able to
exit the prison or jail in a mean-
ingful way has been to have a
climate of acceptance in the
community, church and work-
force so that transformation can
be comprehensive and lasting,"
John Sala, Little, Lambs,


founder, said.
One of the requirements for
participating in the program is
that ex-offenders, men and
women, will have served at
least one consecutive year.
Heartland Workforce has
contracted with One Stop, an
employment agency that helps
get jobs for anyone in the com-
munity. They will provide
employer service training, case
management training and ongo-
ing data entry support to Little
Lambs Inc. In addition, through
a grant, they've contracted with
Little Lambs through Ex-
offender Tri-County Re-
employment Advocacy
(ExTRA). Little Lambs will
contact, evaluate and recom-
mend the next steps for the ex-
offender.
This will be accomplished
through two specialists who1
have joined Little Lambs.
They will form partnerships
with employers who would
benefit from these hires and are
willing to employ ex-offenders.
These men know what it is to
have served time in prison and
to live hopeful, productive
lives. They are eager to help
other ex-offenders find a future
and a hope..
To achieve these goals, ex-
offenders will be referred to
these Little Lambs, specialists.
for assessment; such as, job his:
tory, skills and experience, edu-


cation, etc. They will determine
if training is needed, facilitate
the steps for that training and
re-evaluate career goals. They
will work collaboratively with
local businesses and One Stop
Centers in Highlands, Hardee
and DeSoto counties. Their
main office will be at Little
Lambs headquarters in Sebring
with satellite locations in the
One Stop Centers.
In addition, other Little
Lambs classes will be available
to the ex-offenders. These
include addiction, family/par-
enting, relationships and
accountability along with coun-
seling and Ientoring.
Eventually, the goal is to see
transitional housing become a
reality as well.
"Such helps have proven to
sharply lower the rate of return
to prison," Sala said.
Sala says that local prisons
contain great talent and human
potential that needs to be redi-
rected. Little Lambs has been
teaching and mentoring prison-
ers for years and extends those
classes and meetings for them
outside as well.
"Part of our goal is to have
the offender begin to plan their
exit positively instead of just
leaving jail and seeing what
will happen and whom they will
encounter," Sala said. "We want

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Cartoon outrage understanding, but out of control


I like to look at
editorial cartoons.
Some of them are
very funny, some
are thought pro-


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


evoking. Look at
enough of these
things and you will run across
one or more that you will find
offensive.
As a Christian, I have found
my faith and beliefs the object
of ridicule in some cartoons.
Do I like it? No, of course not.
No one likes to have the things
they value and hold in high
esteem mocked and belittled.
But, there is this little thing
called freedom of the press in
this country, and so while I
might complain about offensive
stuff and even go as far as to
avoid media that indulges in it,
I certainly acknowledge the car-
toonist's right to draw it,
So I admit that I can under-
stand that Muslims are terribly
offended at some editorial car-
toons that were. published in a
Denmark newspaper back in
September. The pictures includ-
ed one of Mohammed with a


bomb for a turban,
and others that
mocked Islam. In
that faith, images
of Mohammed are
forbidden.


Muslim outrage came slowly,
but exploded this month as the
cartoons were reprinted in
newspapers throughou t the
world. Sadly that outrage has
resulted in riots and violence,
and some people have died. (To
their credit, many Muslim lead-
ers have called for calm and a
cessation of the violence). The
Denmark newspaper that start-
ed it all has sort of apologized
but added that their printing of
the cartoons were within
Danish law.
There are. cries of "freedom
of the press" from the throats of
those who have.republished the
pictures. Some news outlets
have refused to print them in
the name of not adding fuel to
the fire. Of course, in this age of
the Internet, anyone with half
decent skills with a web brows-
er can find these, pictures. It


took me less than five minutest
Why did I look at these pic-
tures? I did so because I was
going to write about them and I
wanted to see how. offensive'
they were. I saw a few that were
I a Muslim, would tick me off.
Some of them I didn't get at all,
maybe because not only am 'I
not Muslim, I'm not Danish.
If I were an editor trying to
decide whether or not to publish
these pictures I would find it a
tough call. If we are to truly
honor the concept of "freedom
of speech," we have to
acknowledge that we must
allow speech that we might find
offensive to us. On the other
hand, I would not wish to.
offend others simply for the
sake of offending them.
But my sympathy for those
who are offended by these pic-
tures ends when they begin to
pick up stones and riot. Your
being offended does not give
you the right to destroy proper-
t. or take lives.
I think of all the things I have
seen or read about that have


offended me. Does anyone else
remember when an artist
immersed a crucifix in some
urine and called it art? That is
simply one example of art
offensive td Christians. Did we
go on a rampage, burning flags
or damaging property? Did we
kill people? No. We protested,
we griped, (and we got yelled at
for that) but we did not resort to
violence.
I'm not going to sit here and
tell Muslims to not be offended
about these images. They have
the right to be offended. But
they might want to consider that
if they want the right to say
things that may offend others,
they will have to accept that the
others have that same right,
It's not easy seeing the things
we honor trampled by others.
But it shouldn't be hard to
refrain from violence in
response.

'Famous Faces9

was lot of fun

Editor:
'It was surely a welcome
pleasure to attend last Friday's
"Famous Faces" fund-raiser in
support of 'our local Battery B'
National Guard Unit at the,
lovely South Florida
Community College
Auditorium. I am proud to say
the Legion has, supported this
group of soldiers from its first
word of deployment but feel
the love and patriotism of our
great community that abounded
there during the wonderful


show was most uplifting.
When we hear so many self-
ish and unkind acts in our world
it is so good to see that there is
so many wonderful people who
give totally for the good of oth-
ers such as this fine group of
talented, beautiful people that
make up "Famous Faces" lead
by Ted Key. I am proud to say
they are my friends ,and am
amazed at how they just seem
to get better each time I see or
hear them all.
Ted and,.%ife Lorie came up
with the idea to do something
totally about and for the benefit
of the troops and when they
approached the rest of the cast:


Angie Saunders, Vicki Archer
and Amelia McCarty, they all
\oted to do this without hesita-
tion.
In a world that so much is
centered around personal greed
I think they are surely to be
commended. They had but
three ieeks to sell tickets, get
sponsors and make it a success
and boy, did they do just that.
Hats off to you all and all those
who came, worked, sponsored
or did what they could for truly
a night of fun and entertainment
and the best part was the whole
thing was filmed to send to the
guys in Iraq so they will see
first hand how much you all


care and are helping with their
family needs.
Famous Faces in my book is
truly a first class act and as
good as any I have seen in a
long time, and 'I just want them,
to know they are true
Americans!
Special thank you to
Americanism Chairman Anna
Linebach for representing our
unit in this project.
God Bless America!

Children can hold a marriage together


Does having
children insure the
success and
longevity of a mar-
riage? I believe so,


GUEST

Sheila


but not in the way
some folks think.
For instance: A young couple
falls in love and gets married.
It's a good marriage; they even
get along with their in-laws.
Then the children start coming
along and both become very
busy. Sbon, he's working over-
time and she's deeply commit-
ted to all the responsibilities of
motherhood. They don't get to
see as much of each other as
they used to.
As time passes, one of them
may become disgruntled and
succumb to the excitement of
an affair. The other rmay not
even be aware of this event,
which is probably best in the
long run.
The years go by, the children
grow up and both partners,
become restless. They even dis-'
cuss the possibility of a divorce,


OLUMN, but get sidetracked
COLUMN when their'
youngest child is
SRyan involved in an auto"
accident and taken
to the hospital, the
oldest needs help
filling out the endless forms for
application to college and the
middle child brings home a less

than attractive prospective
mate.
They put the divorce plans on
hold indefinitely until these
problems can be resolved.
Before they know it, they're
approaching retirement age, the
middle child is married, the col-
leg'e graduate has moved to
another state and the youngest
Shas decided to make the Navy
his career.
One evening the husband
comes home from work with a
beautiful watch and a lot of sev-
erance pay awarded to him for
25 years of faithful service to
the company. He finds his
attractive wife staring out the


front window of their neat and
%er) quiet house.
He says. "Hi. Who.are you?"
She says, "Hi. Who are
you?"

He says, "I'm retired now."
She says,. "I'm no longer
president of PTA."
He says, "Can I buy you a
cup of coffee?"
She says, "All right."
At the local diner, they sit
looking at each other over the
rims of their cups.
"What have you been doing
this last 20 years?" .
"Well, I started out as a mail
boy for Amex Paper Box Co.
and worked my way up to man-
ager of the east side plant. To
tell you the truth, I had more
fun in 'the mailroom than in any
of the other jobs they promoted
me to. However, I did make
enough money to allow me to
retire while I'm still relatively
young. I don't think I've done
badly. What have you been
doing this last 20 years?"


'The best ally we have in protecting ourselves

against terrorism is an informed.public.'
THOMAS H. KEAN, former co-chairman, National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon
the United States, 2005


"I started out as the typical
suburban housewife, raising my
children and taking care of your
parents and mine in their ill-
nesses. I joined the PTA and
even became the regional direc-
tor. I was active in the garden
club and worked for a few years
with MADD. I found time to
take classes in child psycholo-
gy, which helped with our kids
and then, during those years
when you worked so much
overtime you hardly ever got
home, I enrolled -in language
courses at the college."
"Ahem, yes...uh, what lan-
guages did you study?"
"I took Chinese, but I doubt
if I'll get much use out of that. I
took Spanish too."
"Maybe we could take a trip
to Mexico."
"I could interpret if it was
needed."
"You always were good com-
pany on a road trip. You could
read the maps and I could get us
lost. Like we used to."
"Maybe later we could take a
trip to China."
"Sounds like a good plan to
me."
And that's how having chil-
dren tends to hold a marriage
together.

'Angry Burrito'


K I -~


REAL
Phil Att


My nephews are
Jack, Wes and Will, also
known as "Huey, Duey and
Louie."
My brothers and their
wives just made a bunch more
Attingers. Bill and Vaiana are
talking about another.
(They've got to be
stopped!)
Kids bring a new perspec-
tive to life, especially when
they're not yours and live
5,000 miles away.
Jack and Wes are French-
made with Anglo-Germanic
engineering. Wes is the
newest. He arrived for
Christmas, with postage due.
Will, born Jan. '12, is
Tahitian-Italian on his mom's
side a true "Polynesian
paisano."
I've learned some anec-
dotes over the phone, which
I'll now publish with impuni-
ty, far away from the barrage
of dirty diapers.
So for now, a disclaimer:
"This column in no way


impugns the pre-
ciousness- of the
sweet bundles of
joy to whom I'm
related, nor does. it
contain any nega-
tivity toward the
joys of parent-
hood:"


That 'said, I'm
LIFE told when bambino
Willy cries, he is
singer "all mouth."
" I'm also told
when he is all
wrapped up in his
swaddling cloth,
and starts crying, he resem-
bles an "Angry Burrito."
Bill came up with that,
Vaiana. Go hit him!
Will's parents have appar-
ently learned his several dis-
tinct cries. Naturally there's,
"I'm hungry," and "I'm
thirsty."
Also, every parent knows
the cry for, "I have just had a
nasty poop."
Then there's, "I want that,"
"I'm scared," "I'm sleepy,"
"I'm grumpy," "I'm bash-
ful," "I'm Dopey," and "I'm
Doc."
Then, there's "I want atten-'
tion," followed, if hot
answered promptly, by: "I
said, 'I want attention!' .
.Finall., for any parent fool-
ish enough. to let it come to
this, there's the ultimate cry:
"YOU didn't pay ATTEN-
TION to me, so YOU MUST
PAY THE PENALTY!"
Also called, "The Stage 2
Cry."


I asked, "Is there is a
'Stage 3?' "
"It's kind of like the Fourth
Dimension," Bill said. "We're
pretty sure it exists; we just
haven't experienced it."
He doesn't intend to, either.
When they first brought
Will home from the hospital,
Bill accidentally left behind
part of the nursing pump.
People there asked him what
that stage-looking object was.
He said it was a key com-
ponent of a very important
machine that produces "liquid
silence."
Apparently it works. Will's
parents are now averaging a
full four hours of sleep every
night.

Devils fall to Pasco


in First Pitch finale


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Red Devils tried to
Sshae" off a disastrous tithsy
'- "ning on Saiurda. butL'"
couldn't come all the w a3
back in an 8-6 loss to Pasco in
the final game of the presea-
son First Pitch Classic at
Head Field.
Michael Onyskin hit a solo
home run to open the top of
the fifth for the Pirates, who
went on to score seven runs in
the inning to go from down 2-
1 to having a seven-run lead.
The Devils, who rested
most of their starters,
responded with three runs in
the bottom of the inning on
.Corey Topa's RBI single.
Dillan Runner's RBI double
and a run-scoring ground out
off the bat of Paul Conrad.
Topa walked in a niru in the
sixth, but the Devils could get
no closer.
Conrad finished 3-for-4 to
lead the Devils, who beat
Haines City 5-0 on 'Friday
night behind,strong perform-
ances from the Sedlock

seventh to pace the offense.

* Editor's note: Results of Lake
Placid's game iti the district
championship in Frostproof were
not available at press time on
Saturday.
By MARCUS WILKINS
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING -. Amid the mass
confusion at the end of Saturday
night's Class District 10-4A
championship, several panting
Avon Park Red Devils could only
shake their heads as they tried to
decipher what had just happened
in a 71-65 defeat. Somehow, the
game had been taken from them in
the closing seconds. Who it was
who had done the taking is anoth-
er story.
Four late free throws took the
momentum away from Avon Park
in what was up to that point quick-
ly becoming a dramatic upset of.
second-ranked Sarasota Booker.
As the clock wound down to less
than 20 seconds, Rafael Johnson,
Karl Comadore and Patrick
Menzies'Jr. all had looks at the
basket ,that would have tied the
game at 67-67. A block, a miss


and an over-the-baok call later,
Booker was walking to the oppo-
site end with the'victory in hand.
The frenzied Aor, Park majori-
ty in attendance couldn't believe
that the officiating had figured so
prominently in the outcome of the
game, and Red Devil head coach
Eric Zwayer was rendered
speechless.
"No comment," Lawyer sighed
when asked about
Booker the late-game offici-
ating. "It was a real-
7 1 J ly close game. We
Avon Park just didn't make. a
couple shots down
65 the stretch."
Comadore led
Avon Park with 16 points and
Menzies dumped in 15, but it was-
n't enough of a counter punch, to
Booker's big two. Led by Gary
Clark and Eniel Polynice (29 and
24, respectively), Booker scored
in bunches, teetering on the edge
of blowing the game open several
times. The motivated Red Devils
kept hanging around. and proved
something to themselves if noth-
ing else.


"We know that we can hang
with anyone in the state. Booker's
ranked No. 2 in the state and we
played right there with them. We
get a couple calls and it goes a dif-
ferent way, but ..: that's OK,"
added Zwayer. "We're going to
work on our game, we're going to
go wherever we have to go (in the
regionals) and we're going to
attack on offense and defense.
We'll be ready."
Avon Park 72
DeSoto 61
Even halftime couldn't rob the
Devils of the momentum they
gained in the blink of an eye dur-
ing Friday night's 72-61 semifinal
victory over DeSoto.
Patrick Menzies' two-handed
dunk off a missed shot with 11
seconds left in the first half did
more than just give Avon Park a
five-point lead heading into inter-
mission. It also provided the
momentum they used for a 23-
point outburst in the third quarter
that gave them control of the
game and, ultimately, a poit in the

AVON PARK For Sebring senior Brad
Hicks, making it to the state wrestling finals for
the first time is a perfect way to cap a career. For
Avon Park's James Bland, earning a spot at state
in his first year of wrestling for a first-year pro-
gram is a great way to start one.
Hicks, a 140-pounder whose final season
almost ended early due to an injury, was one of
four .Blue Streaks to earn a trip state during
Saturday's second day of action at the Region 2-

College. He beat John

BRAD HICKS it to state for Sebring.
Bland was the only wrestler
from Avon Park's fledgling program to qualify,
,finishing fourth in the 152-pound division.
Hicks, who came within one win of state the
previous two seasons, broke the growth plate in
his elbow early in the season and eventually left
the team after the Spiegel Invitational in. January
when he re-injured the arm. After some time off,
however, he recovered enough to rejoin the squad
just in time to win a district title.
Hicks said he was counting the seconds'
towards the end of his 9-2 win over Vincent
Ferlita of Hudson in the semifinals Saturday
morning, which clinched his spot at state.
"I kept thinking, 'All I've got to do is hold
him, all I've got to do is hold him,'" he said. "I

Quinn, Carney and Heliiglirt or cycle in vicioes


Special to the News-Sun
Charles Quinn hit for the
cycle with a homer, triple, dou-
ble and single at Lincoln
Heights Field to lead Royal
Palms to a 24-15 win over
Luby's Buffet in Sebring
Seniors Softball League action
Thursday. For the Royals, Cal
Bready was 4-for-5, Tom
Gaiownik was 3-for-4 and Bob
Fox was 3-for-4. Four hits each
by Dave Crotser 'and Bob
Brooks led Luby's offense.
At DeSoto Field, Howard
Carney went 4-for-5 and also
hit for the cycle to key Miller
Central Air's 24-13 win, over
Aluminum Discount.


The teams played evenly for
five innings, then Miller's big
guns came alive. Bob Fee led
the way with a 5-for-5 day and
Fred Moore was close behind,
going 4-for-4 with a homer.
Rod Palmer was 4-for-5 with a
homer and
Mike Ellis and John Schmidt
led the Discounters with three
hits in four at bats. Extra base
hits (doubles) were made by
Ray Wilson, Paul Stephenson,
Les Smith and John Schmidt.
The Silernt Salesman and the
Buttonwood Bay Rebels got
into a dogfight at Lake June
Field. The game see-sawed
back and forth through 5 1/2


innings, then the Salesmen went
ahead by eight runs to secure a
23-15 victory.
Big Jerry Johnston energized
the Salesmen's offense with
four hits in four at bats and four
players recorded three hits
apiece: Harley Smith, Russ
Lehman, Roque Soccarras and
Ken Filppula.
Pounding out extra-base hits
were Lehman and Syd Collins
(homers) and triples by
Socarras, Johnston and Max
Glenn.
The Rebs' Moose
Morressette and Glenn .Moore
led the way with four hits and,
Elwood Black, Jack Grosso and


Jim Striezel contributed three
hits, Tony Caristo homered and
Morressette tripled and dou-
bled: Grosso also contributed a
double.
In addition to the Rebs' hit-
ting, Stan Turl disrupted the
opponent's defense with his
speed and quickness on the base
paths. He's as disruptive as a
colony of ants on a putting
green when he g base.
Highlands C b league
60s division
Highlands Ridge beat
.Reflections 26-8 behind Bill
Helbig, who hit for the cycle
after starting his day with a

PARK
Continued from 1E
state playoffs.
"Any time Pat gets a dunk, it
gets our guys excited," Avon,
Park coach Eric Zwayer said.
"They got excited and they car-
ried it on into the third quarter'
and they pressed and ran all
over the place and made a lot of
plays. It was fun to watch."
The dunk capped a stretch
over the final 2:32 of the half in
which Menzies, who finished
with 17 points, outscored the
Bulldogs 8-2 by himself to take
the Devils from a 26-25 deficitL


to a 33-28 lead at halftime.
The Devils closed the third
quarter on a 17-4 run to take a
56-38 lead into the final quarter,
but Zwayer cautioned his play-
ers during the break not to get
too comiplIacemi, tle[lng his team
to play like "we'ti nut uip."
That warning proved to be
prophetic when the Bulldogs
rebounded to. pull to within 61-
57 with 2:18 left in the game,
but the Devils made their free
throws down the,stretch, finish-
ing 23-of-28 from the line for
the game.
"We did a ie:al good job of
e\eculing." Zwayer said.
"There's been some games


where we didn't make those
free throws and we -really
emphasized that and came in
and tried to make those free
throws do%% n the stretch."
Zwayer \%as particularly%
pleased ith the plaN of point
guard R.ilael Johnson. who fin-
ished v. lh .t game-high 22
points and was the 'Devils'
spark all nighl long.
"He stepped up at the point
and, made a lot of plays, took it
- hard to the rack and finished
and made a lot of free ihro% s
and I thought e e e\ one else fol-
lowed ,uil behind him,"
Zwayer said.

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Tim Mikula of Sebring improves his grip on Wes Dean of Villages High School during Saturday's 189-
pound semifinal.


FIVE
Continued from 1E
Cunningham said of the semifinal win. "He's
rounding back into form, which is good."
Bandj, a fresh iuman \\.ho .is, 6-7 made it
through Friday unbeaten before getting pinned in
the '152-pound semifinals by Mike Musto of
Citrus on Saturday. He then rebounded for a 14-7
decision over Gulf's Bennet Seybold to clinch a
berth at state before falling in the consolation
final. '
"It feels great," he said of qualifying. "It was
m) goal.'"
Bland actually' started working toward state
while still in middle school, going to Sebring
Takedown Club matches with coach Lee Elder
last spring, before there was even a wrestling pro-
gram at Avon Park. ,
"It helped a lot," Bland said of the early start.


"I started out knowing the basics and went
straight to work when I got to high school."
"We started going to the Takedown Club and I,
promised him that if he did everything I asked
him to do, he would qualify for the state tourna-
ment, and he did," Elder said: "Give him all the
credit, though, because he did all the workk"
Mikula opened with a pin, and a 9-1, decision
on Friday, then beat Wes Dean of The Villages 9-
4 in the semifinals on Saturday morning.
Red Devil 189-pounder Josue Ortiz made it to
the consolation semifinals before being eliminat-
ed, and Jason Roman (140 pounds,) won a match
in the wrestlebacks before being eliminated.
"They were a little hocked at how physical the
wrestling was here," Elder said of his rookie
grapplers. "The competition level was a little
higher. Josue Ortiz won two matches and lost
two, so we almost had two go to state..Overall,
we're pleased. We've got something to build on
Iand we're looking forward to the futuree"

Bass ready for its close-up, but

LAKE PLACID .,
Good fishing stories
usually involve "the
one that got away" -

glorify an otherwise
uneventful day. .
When' Jim ..
Radcliffe came to th
News-Sun. office Witil ..,
a 12-pound bass .

"I %as sitting there up right for a picture.
thinking that there's
no %ta\ she' going to
get this thing up here," Radcliffe said.
On .hie southern bank of Highlands County's
big lake, Ada Radcliffe worked her lightmteight
rod and 8-pound-test line, co.-.in- the large-
mouth bass. to the shore' around 5-30t p.m
Thursday. : .. .
Jim Radcliffe was on hi- \, to :i ta\idernii
in Ax on Park to have the no,. -frozen ti hi mount-
ed.
."She a bigger fisherman than ne." he said of
his wife. \\ ho \ isn't available tp:hax e hei picture

e hopping 12-pound hass his
g an 8-pound line bailed with
cliffe? Her hair wasn't done


Now, she'll go out
fishing on d:ia that I
won't."
But this is where
the story gets fishy.
The hard-core
fisherman, if you'll
believe it, told her
husband that her hair
wasn't proper for a
picture.
Well, he took her
picture with the prize
fish but it's nothing
she'd want pub-
lished, Jim Radcliffe
said.
"I told her that


nobody's going to be
looking at you," he
said, explaining how her struggle with the fish
had to ha\ e been easier' than his trying to lure her
to the newspaper for a photo op. "They're going
to be looking at the'fish.",
The RadcIif(fe moved to Sebring from Indiana
about five years ago, after he retired.
There; he said, 5-pound bass are something to
get excited about and 8-pound bass win tourna-
ments. .
"Thlii's what. everybody's after when they
come down -fronm the north," he said, indicating
the bass w which Ada Radcliffe.caught with a crap-


pie-bailed hook.
