LAKE PLACID As quietly as a lifting fog, the 30th anniversary
1of a school bus crash that killed three children and its driver passed
'Thursday.
At 7:38 a.m. Feb. 16, 1976. a bus carrying 49 students to school
was struck at the intersection of U.S. 27 and State Road 621 by a trac-
4 tor-trailer fully loaded with frozen chicken.
"That morning was so foggy you couldn't see four feet in front of
.you," Kell Woods said Thursday during a phone interview. Woods
:was a 12-year-old passenger on Bus No. 11, which never completed
its runs that Monday morning.
Avery John Cox, 11, 6-year-old Robert
Reynolds, 5-year-old Mark 'Holmes and Charles
Irwin, 51, died. Nearly two doz6n-other students
were hospitalized.
Truck driver Ken Ed Staples, 23, of College
Park, Ga., was cited for failure to use due care and
for running a red light,.according to Trooper Lamar
D. Ritenour's report.
Looking over copies of the Avon Park Sun on
Wednesday, Ritenour said the pictures returned him
to the chaotic intersection.

Goetz: Istokpoga levels a matter of 'balance'


Residents want schedule
adjusted for late hurricanes
-By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Residents got a chance
Friday to express displeasure with 'Lake
Istokpoga water levels during Hurricane
Wilma.
However, according to water manage-
ment experts, they may not be able to do
much, at least yet.
When and how, high to set v.ater lc -
els on Lake Istokpoga depends on find-
ing.a balance between supply, ecology,


iecre.aitoril bo.aiing and flood control.
Lt. Col. Andrew W. Goetz, deputy dis-
trict engineer with the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers in Jacksonville, said that if
water levels on Lake Istokpoga are low-
ered, residents and agriculturists may
not get high wind-surge.
However, South ,Florida Water
Management District may have supply
problems and not be able to release
water at all, he said, because it won't
flow out.
High lake levels during a hurricane
could flood Eagle's Nest, a subdivision
of 25 homes on the south end of the lake.


-Ray Cash said taking the lake down two
foot would let residents without any
water put boats on the lake.
Paul Ph. pei,. representing caladium
growers, said the only dikes on thief ,outhI
end of the lake are privately 'owned.
Flood c'.nli Ji:pl:ends on how well indi-
viduals maintain them.
A dike on the west side of a 20-acre
field of his failed and flooded a crop
with muck, water and debris during last
year's hurricane season.
There is no natural drainage north of
County Road 621, so that field is still
flooded, he said.


If the Corps h.i, to bring up water lev-
els for the winter, Phypers would like to
see it happen later in the year, such as
November.
Susan. Sylvester, deputy director of
operations for the water district, said the
last two hurricane seasons blew away
expected rain and wind levels.
2004 had 15 tropical storms and nine
hurricanes: 2005 had 27 tropical storms
and 15 hurricanes. None of this new
wind and rain data is part of the lake

FAA and condo development collide


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Suni .
AVON PARK Just when
Roland Difley's horizon was
beginning to show signs of
hope, he was delivered another
blow.
Having placed his citrus
nursery property on the market
after losing it to canker three
months. ago, Dilley was
approached by out-of-town
developer Jacob Nagar.
"I was elated when I was
approached by the Realtor and a
contract was drawn up for the
sale of the property," Dilley
said., "We should have closed
by Jan. 28."
'His enthusiasm was short-
lived as issues, some of which
had been buried for years, came
unearthed stalling the trans-
action and possibly preventing
it.
Nagar proposed a mixed-use
development plan. The com-
mercial end of it would include
a shopping village with outdoor
cafes, boutiques, restaurants, a
supermarket, and small retailers
along the area facing State
Road 64. He even envisioned
potentially well-known fran-
chises such as Starbucks,
Einstein ,Bagels, Kinko's,

Proposed development of Dilley property is hindered by Federal Aviation Administration zoning regula-
tions.


Carraba's Italian Grill, and a
major bank.
Residentially, he proposed
Waterways Village, an upscale
gated community of 600 units
with a clubhouse, two pools,
tennis courts, a playground and


a gym. According to his propos-
al, this would set the standard
for future gated communities in
the area.
He suggested that the devel-
opment would reduce traffic in
Avon Park "as the residents


could walk or ride bikes to do
shopping."
Because the property in ques-
tion is outside of city limits, it
would require annexation.
Issues were raised by the
Avon Park Executive Airport


(opposite Dilley's site on SR
64), when the petition- for
annexation was brought to the
city council.
There have been two council
meetings related to the Dilley
dilemma. At the first meeting,
attorney John McClure spoke
on behalf of the airport about
public safety. It appears that the
Dilley property lies in what is
referred to as the "clear zone,"
an area strictly regulated by
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion guidelines. It was men-
tioned that because the airport
relies heavily on grants from
the FAA, that they could lose
funding if they do not comply
with those policies.
Additionally, the city would
be liable if a plane crashed into
the development something
that did happen a few years ago
when a Lear jet crashed into the
Dilley property, according to
City Manager C.B. Shirey.
According to John Barben,
chairman of the city's Airport
Community Redevelopment
Agency and Airport Advisory
Committee, these guidelines
deal with hazards, structures,

Fifty percent increase noted as Cracker Trail Riders assemble


Special to the News-Sun
As the Florida Cracker Trail
Association steps off today for
its 19th annual re-enactment of
cattle drivers returning, from
historic sales for shipment
south, there are 140 riders regis-
tered and others awaiting a
chance to join.
Former Ride Trail Boss Sam
Harper, who is also a past pres-
ident of the association, said
Thursday the "riders are lining
up for late registration" and will
be processed at the starting


point of the annual event in
Manatee County and along the
route to be taken to the east
coast ride terminus at Fort
Pierce.
The count, however, was
already at 140 registered riders
from about the state and nation
during a check by officers
Thursday. The ride usually
draws about 100 riders, Harper
said.
"There is also a good chance
we may have a couple of
celebrities on borrowed horses


for the early week ride," Harper
continued, noting a conversa-
tion she had with the Bellamy
Brothers, a Florida singing
group -who have a ranch in
Dade City and are interested in
the historic ride.
Harper said she was checking
to determine the dates for the
20th anniversary event in 2007
in hopes of getting a commit-
ment from the group to perform
a fund-raising concert in Fort
Pierce as the anniversary ride
ends, when the idea of a pair of


the singers joining up this
month in the early ride days of
today, Monday or Tuesday.
As the riders head east on
The Florida Cracker Trail, des-
ignated back in the mid 1980s
by the Florida Legislature and
the Florida Department of
Transportation, the group will
be stopping for lunch, breaks
and night camping at historic
pioneer ranches along the way.
Currently the ride begins in
eastern Manatee County at the
intersection of the Trail or State


Road 64 and County Road
675.One of the favorite places
to view the riders and their rigs
is the busy intersection of U.S.
27 in Highlands County where
State Road 66 and U.S. 98 con-
verge.
A massive traffic stop by the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Department makes the event a
"safe one," Harper said. It is
there that the riders and their
accompanying vehicles reach
the halfway mark of the route
home taken by cattlemen who


had sold their cows at west
coast markets such as Punta
Rassa where they were shipped
to Cuba.
Another "special stop" is
made at the Zolfo Springs
Elementary school and later
that day, Tuesday, at the Kahn
Ranch where a special program
and dinner, by reservation, is
staged. The ranch is owned by
Marvin and Elsa Kahn. He is
one of the founders of the Trail
designation made in 1987 and
has hosted the camp each year.

Drug task force busts



Lorida marijuana grower

SEBRING Law enforce-
ment has busted what appears
to ha\e been sophisticated
manijuaha gro% int operation inf.
Londa "
Geoi-e Rt:n.ild Farina Jr., 52,
sole occupant of 1209 N. Oak
Ridge Drive, is now in
Highlands County Jail under a
$500,000 bond.-
He has been charged with
cultivation of cannabis, posses-
sion of cannabis with intent to
sell or deliver, and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
When members of the
Highlands County Multi-
Agency Drug Task Force
served a search warrant
Thursday at his house, they
found two garages converted
into growing rooms.
Sheriff Susan Benton charac-
terized the house as a "very
sophisticated growing opera-
tion."
From inside the house, offi-
cers seized high-pressure vapor
lights and reflective material,
large 50-gallon plastic barrels
for liquid fertilizer, plants,
pumps, PVC tubing for irriga-
tion and, allegedly even


prepackaged drugs in Baggies,
ready for sale,
Capt. Randy LaBelle with
the sheriff's office said plant
growth chemicals.ran to plants
:-.via the tubing. itih a syAsemnof
timer, and water pumps -"
Irue hy\dr'opo nic growing oper-
ation."'
The bust was part of a long-
term investigation, LaBelle
said, that broke open when a
search warrant in Miami a few
weeks ago turned up another
growing operation run by
Farina's brother.
Detective Mike Delaney,
lead detective on the Lorida
case, was able to get a search
warrant, LaBelle said.
During the. search, deputies
and representatives from
Glades Electric Cooperative
learned Farina had diverted a
significant, amount of .power
from Glades Electric lines via
buried underground cable.
Susie Bishop, with Glades
Electric, said investigators con-
tacted them to see if there was
stolen electricity. It .was not
readily visible. Technicians had
not seen it before officers found
the feed.
"The guy is an ex-eldctrical


contractor," LaBelle said. "He
was able to divert power (from)
between the pole and the
meter."
He said the diverting power
is ve'r $'mmon among grow
ht .iuis,-t-1-a.,ioid detection.
Bishp' 'com'p iii kets the
sheriff's office and FDLE for
cracking the case. She doesn't
expect to know until next week
how much power was stolen,
but it won't effect legal cus-
tomers' rates.
Charges are pending for the
theft of electric power, as well
as possible federal charges,
LaBelle said.
Officers found just less than
$249,000 in cash, LaBelle said.
All cash and equipment used
in growing or transporting the
rarijuana was seized as evi-
dence. The sheriff's office and
the DEA will proceed to forfeit
the cash, the residence, and any
cars Farina used.
LaBelle said two vehicles
were seized: A Chevrolet
extended cab pickup and a
Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
By law, officers can use such
vehicles for future special
investigations.

SEBRING Almost every
big .event in Highlands
Hammock State Park has peo-
ple walking alongside County
Road 634.
This can be a problem, since
the road goes straight through
the park, with traffic traveling
between Highlands and Hardee
counties.
Now a project to build a
boardwalk through the woods
may help solve that problem
and earn a native Floridian an
Eagle Scout rank from Boy
Scouts of America..
Jarrett Singley, 17, whose,
great-great-grandfather was
city founder George Sebring,
first heard about the project in
May 2005. His mother, Beverly
Singley, talked with Jeannie
Parks, assistant park manager,
at a Sebring High School Air
Force Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps banquet.
Jarrett Singley .was in ROTC
for two years,, and earned the
rank of Tech Sergeant.
Parks said The Friends of
Highlands Hammock have had
a plan to build a boardwalk to
take pedestrian traffic off that
part of the road. It would pass
through the woods from the

Residents urged to attend Vision 2020 sessions


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING People hoping
to secure their vision for'
Highlands County's future may
want to attend Monday's
Vision 2020 session.
Lynn Topel, executive direc-
tor of Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative, said people should
attend as many of the three ses-
sions as they can over the next
two months.
Each one is held at a different


location, but each new meeting
will build on the previous one,
first by gathering each person's
priorities for the future, and
then seeing which ones will be
the priorities for the whole
county.
Topel said sessions will focus
on what aspects of community
people want to keep and will
give people a chance to get
more information from area
experts on their concerns.
There will be three public
meetings. The first 6-9 p.m.


Monday at Sebring Middle
School will help identify
what residents treasure and
what their desires are for the
future of the county.
The second session at 6-9
p.m. Tuesday, March 7, at Lake
Placid High School Commons,
will help refine the list of indi-
vidual desires.
The last session, 6-9 p.m.
Tuesday, April 4, at Avon Park
Community Center, will build
consensus and discuss the next
steps in making our desires a

Local, state, and regional
organizations will use what
they learn to influence plan-
ning. Once counties set priori-

by the Civilian Conservation
Corps Museum.
The park is always looking
for scout projects and has
always benefited from them,
Parks said.
Singley, a scout since 1999,
will be 18 on March 12. He
needs to complete his Eagle
Scout project before then.
Construction began last
week.
He started fund raising in
August and September, and
needed all materials and funds
in place before he could start
building: Cutting wood,
installing- planks and placing
rails.
With help from park person-
nel, fellow scouts, scout lead-
ers, friends and family, he has
already put 100 hours of prepa-
ration into the project, Beverly
Singley said.
When he's done, he said the
park will have a 521-foot walk-
way through the woods, 5 feet
wide, with railings. 3 1/2 feet
high.
It will be at-grade, allowing
for wheelchair access and a
bridge over a creek, Parks said.
A contractor will put in the
pilings for the bridge, Beverly

Singley said.
The project costs $24,000
total, Parks said. Jarrett sent out
letters to several businesses and
residents for donations. For
$50, donors can have a plaque
put on the railing.
He still has letters and dona-
tions coming in, Beverly
Singley said.
The Division of State Parks
was also able to match funds
with a $10,000 grant, Parks
said.
About 40-50 feet of the trail
is already done, Jarrett Singley
said. He'll be out in the park
every weekend until the project
is complete.
. Other members of Scout
Troop 818 went to camp in
Wauchula over the weekend of
Feb. 17-19 for a scout chal-
lenge, he said. After that, some
of the leaders came out that
Sunday to help him.
He couldn't go to the camp
out. Besides school and the.
project, he holds a job at Kash
n' Karry :supermarket as
cashier/service clerk.
Other volunteers are wel-
come to help, Beverly Singley
said. People can call 382-9392
to ask her or husband Arthur
Singley about helping.

Gibson charged with failing


to register as sexual offender


News-Sun
SEBRING A listed sexual
offender who allegedly
absconded from Highlands
County as much as six months
prior to last April was charged
this week with failing to regis-
ter that address change with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
S James Alan

Highland student living
at 230 Cornell
Road,, St.
hugustine, ha s 3171
been charged
and was
GIBSON booked into the
Highlands County Jailr on
Tuesday, Feb. 14.
Arrest reports state he still
had his address listed as 3171
Grove Ave., Avon Park,
although Florida Department of
Law Enforcement records had
his last address listed as 3955
Lewis Speedway, St.
Augustine.
According to jail officials, he
was found in another county
and brought back to Highlands
County.
The case began 10 months


ago. At 10:59 a.m. April 5,
2005, a Highlands County sher-
iff's deputy attempted to con-
tact Gibson at his Avon Park
address and found another per-
son who said he had lived there
two months, Gibson had moved
out, and he hadn't seen Gibson
for six months.
By Florida statute, listed sex-
ual offenders have 48 hours to
update their Florida driver's
license or identification card
when they move to a new
address.
Then, on Oct. 18, 2005, a
warrant was sworn out on
Gibson for failure to return
leased equipment and false v6r-
ification of ownership to a
pawnbroker, according to arrest
records.
A white male, Gibson stands
6 feet tall, weighs 160 pounds,
has brown hair and hazel eyes,
a scar on his left wrist and a tat-
too of a cross on his right hand.
His convictions are lewd or las-
civious act on a child under age
16 and providing obscene
material to a minor.
According to booking
reports bail was set at $12,000.

Police n

' Highlands County report


Willis charged

with armed
robbery and
burglary
LAKE PLACID A pel-
let-gun robbery case put a
man in jail.
As of Feb.
S7, Robert Lee
Willis, 20, of
Lake Placid,
Iis facing
armed rob--
bery, burgla-
ry, theft and
WILLIS' retail theft
charges,
along with warrants for fail-
ure to appear in court on
other charges.
Total bond was set at
$164,500, arrest reports said.
Allegedly, Willis broke
into B&Y Grocery in Lake
Placid at 5 a.mn. Jan. 3.
Several cellular phones and
pieces of jewelry were taken,
valued at $4,399, total.
Fingerprint evidence
allegedly linked Willis to the
scene.


Reports allege Willis
admitted to Lake Placid
police on Feb. 7 that he stole
a $250 cellular phone on Jan.
18 from the El Mercadito
store.
Also, reports said he
admitted to holding up a
Hispanic man on Jan. 27 with
a black Walther pellet pistol
behind Royal Palm Bowling
Center in Lake Placid, taking
$50 and a cellular phone from"
the victim.

Paniccia

charged with

aggravated
assault with
sword
SEBRING A local man
has been charged with aggra-
vated assault on Feb. 1 after
allegedly pointing a sword at
the victim.
Arrest reports state
Americo Paniccia Jr., 29, of
Sebring, got angry during an
argument with a 35-year-old
woman, allegedly yelling at


both her and two young chil-
dren.
Then, according to arrest
reports, he said he would kill
her, and pointed a long sword
at her.
She was able to take the
sword away from him,
reports said, then picked up
the phone to make a call.
Allegedly,, Paniccia ripped
the phone cradle off the wall,
telling her to let him talk with'
her. She wouldn't give him
the phone, reports said, so he
allegedly took it by force and
hit her with it.
She told him she was going
to call police, at which time
he allegedly got a knife from
the kitchen and walked out-
side. Soon after, reports said,
he walked back inside with a
superficial cut to his wrist.
Allegedly, he told her he
would, and did, call 911 to
say she cut him.,
When questioned by
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies, Paniccia said he cut
his own wrist and hit the vic-
tim with the phone by acci-
dent.
Other witness testimony
confirmed the sword and
phone incidents, so deputies
arrested him. Blanket bond is
$100,000.


Driver ejected after collision


LAKE PLACID The driv-
er of a 1998 Ford pickup got
sent to Tampa General Hospital,
Friday night after apparently
making a right turn in front of

front, spinning it counter-clock-
wise and'throwing the driver
onto the northbound lanes of

Father and daughter compete


against each other at Legends


Mother and son
join competition
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK More than
50 race teams have already reg-
istered to compete in the sixth
annual Rotary Legends
Challenge at the Avon Park
High School Football Field on
Saturday.
Not only do the Legends,
Mini Cup, and Bandolero driv-


ers put on an exciting show; the
camaraderie among the teams is
unique in sports. There proba-
bly is not a team that wouldn't
share a tool, part or information
with another team that was in
need. That's because you have
families that are supporting
their kids in an exciting sport.
If you take the time after the
races to go into the pits and get
autographs or just meet the
drivers you will see dads and

Tom Clarke and his youngest daughter, Kara, will compete against
each other next weekend at the Rptary Legends Challenge. The :
Clarkes show off many of the trophies they have won during their
racing career. In the Mini Cup Series, mother and son Jameen and
Derek Morey will also compete.


putting up tools and equipment.
This level of racing truly is a
family sport.
This year there are two fami-
lies that are taking the "family"
concept to another level. In the
Legends division, Tom and
Kara Clarke will be competing
against each other.
Tom is a businessman from
Palm Beach Gardens and the
father of two girls. Kelly, the
older of the girls, took the path
of dance recitals. Many who
have had young daughters can
recall the hours sitting through
those recitals. Siblings were
dragged along and got to share
in the experience whether they
wanted to or not.
Kara, Tom's younger daugh-
ter, shared in that experience
and decided that she wanted
something a little more excit-
ing.
In 2004, Tom bought a
Bandolero race car.
Immediately, Kara proved she
found her niche. In her first year
of competition, she recorded
two second-place finishes, two
third-place finishes and was
regional champion at the
Orlando Speedworld fall race.
While continuing her
Bandolero racing, she has also
moved up to the much faster
Legends cars. Meanwhile, her
dad, Tom, saw how much fun
Kara was having so he pur-
chased a Legends racer as well.
Now the competition added a
new element father vs.
daughter.
So who is the better of the
two? It's currently pretty much
a draw with Kara taking the
edge. But as for the future, the
sky is the limit for Kara, the 17-
year-old up and coming star.
Tom is officially classified as a
Master (the over-the-hill gang)
and is having a ball racing
against his daughter who is
going after the 2006 Semi Pro
title.
Both father and daughter will
be competing this year in the
Le-rrid-. Challenge in Avon
Park ,
Meanwhile, the Mini Cup
Series has a similar situation,
but this time it is mother vs.

racing Mini Cups for two years,
this will be 'the first year that
they actually get to compete
against each other. Derek has

raced Allpro. However, this
year Derek has moved up to the
Allpro division after finishing
sixth in points last year.
So how did mother and son
become racers?
The Moreys come from a
racing family. While Jameen
was growing up as a young, girl
her father was running the dirt
track circuit. Then Jameen's
brother started racing. Jameen's
son, Derek, being exposed to
racing literally from birth
decided he too wanted to be a
racer.
Two years ago they went to
Orlando Speedworld to watch
the races and the Mini Cups
were competing. Within days
they bought Derek a car and not
wanting to be left out, Jameen
bought one to.
Like the Legends series, the
Mini Cups have a number of

the first race where the family
gets to go door, handle to door
handle. Asked who is the better
driver, Jameen said, "I'm faster
because my car is faster but
Derek thinks, he's the better
driver and can get through the
corners better."
Those attending Saturday's
race will find out which is bet-
ter.
AdJ..rciic tickets are only $7
(children under 9 are free) and
are available at Big T Tire, Bill,
Jarrett Ford, Wells Dodge

National Bank.
Qualifying is at 6 p.m. and
racing begins at 7.

sounds, the noises," he said, his
wife Donna next to him. "You
look around and you ask your-
self, 'Where do I start first?'
Then your training just clicks
in."
According to Ritenour's
report, Irwin pulled the bus
across U.S. 27 crossing east to
west from 621 when Staples'
southbound semi hit the right
front of the bus.
After twisting the bus' cab
upside down, but not quite sep-
arating it from the main body,
the tangled mass came to rest
187 feet south of the intersec-
tion.
"I haven't looked at that acci-
dent report since then,"
Ritenour said. "We didn't know
where the bus driver was at
first. We couldn't figure out
what happened, the way that
thing was so mangled and twist-
ed."
Troopers Joe Shepherd and
Sgt. Wilbur Woods assisted
Ritenour's investigation.

said.
In the three days prior to
Hurricane Wilma, the district
opened floodgates on control
structure S-68 on the southeast
side of the lake and let out
.4,108 cubic feet of water per
second. It wasn't enough to
lower the .lake, especially not
with 204 cubic feet of water
coming each second in from a
canal on the east side.
"The challenge for water
managers is to guess when
we'll get hit," Sylvester said.,
Fluctuation schedules are set
to prevent flooding, provide
natural ebb and flow, and to
ensure water supply during
winter months, Goetz said.
Originally, Lake Istokpoga
fluctuated three to four feet.

approaches, transitional
approach zones, and zoning
around airports, among other
things.,
He said that in the mid 1970s
Highlands County wrote an
ordinance on these issues and
that there was supposed to be a
map explaining all the zones
and where they lie. "That map
either wasn't made or has been
lost," Barben said.
DOT also has say
Aviation is not the only gov-
erning force with a voice in this
matter.
"The DOT (Department of
Transportation) has studies and
recommendations about what
you can do," Barben said. "The
FAA, the Florida state statutes,
and the Highlands County ordi-
nances say that you have to
address zoning and land uses. I
would like nothing more than to
have a win-win solution for
everyone.
"Nobody on the Airport CRA
has said we don't want anything
built on that property we just
want to abide by the ordi-
nances. Once we get that into
compliance, I will be the
biggest supporter."
Sell the airport?
In an effort to eliminate
obstacles generated by the air-
port, Nagar returned to the city
with an offer to purchase the
airport 'for $10 million. His
attorney, Robin Gibson, Lake
Wales, told the council that it
was 'simply something Nagar
was willing to do.
"If it would help the city and
the property was no longer an
issue-, the other issues would go
away," he said.
The council discussed the
possibility of selling the airport
initially built in the late
1930s under a Public Works
Administration Program, taken
over by the federal government
during World War II for pilot
-training use, and conveyed back
to the city in'1947 with restric-
tions and stipulations.
According to Shirey, people
aren't clear on the force, those
have today.
"There are procedures in the
federal regulations that are in
place to allow the city to
request relief from these," he
said. "What's not clear at the
time is how to' go about imple-

saw my dad at but he told me to
get in his patrol car and to stay
there," Woods said.
While he sat in his father's
car, Woods said a young man
was placed in the back seat.
"He sat in the back of'the
patrol car for about an hour and
he was crying his eyes out,"
Woods said, explaining that he
believes the man was Staples.
"He seemed very upset."
The News-Sun couldn't veri-
fy what happened to the truck
driver who was hauling a load
of frozen chicken for Adams
Produce Company of Albany,
Ga.
Rumors persisted that Staples
may have attempted or succeed-
ed in taking his life. Calls to
various agencies couldn't con-
firm if he was prosecuted for
the traffic violations or
manslaughter.


Flooding from hurricanes in the
1920s and 1940s gave rise to
the 'dikes around Lake
Okeechobee and the canals
between the lakes.
Before a storm, the water
district empties canals below
Lake Okeechobee and locks up
the big lake to prepare for rain-
fall, Goetz said. Any water
going into Istokpoga water
must stay there.
The flood control projects
prevent major flooding, he said,
but there is no guarantee a hur-
ricane won't flood someone by
a lake.
Drew Phypers, Paul's
nephew, said Istokpoga hasn't
dropped this winter despite rel-
atively dry months, which tells
him water is seeping in from a
high ground water table.
If so, he said that should be
considered in the lake levels
schedule.


meeting them."
Shirey believes that one,stip-
ulation is that revenue of the
sale of the airport could be used
to fund another airport.
; Selling the airport was enter-
tained only briefly by the coun-
cil. Councilman Doug Eason
waited for Mayor Tom
Macklin's thoughts before com-
menting after two council
members expressed disinterest.
Macklin wasn't ready to dis-
miss the idea of selling it but
'would need more information
before coming to a decision.
"Maybe another airport is need-
ed," he said. "We need to look
at how many more jobs could
be created and homes could be
put on the ground if we 'could
sell the 'airport and proceeds
went back into building another
one."
A need to grow
Eason believed something
could be worked out to satisfy
both sides.
"If we're afraid of what
might happen down the road we
may never grow," he said. He
talked about considering mov-
ing the airport back and said
that if that couldn't be worked
out maybe something could be
done to compensate losses.
"If we could have an 8,000-
to 10,000-seat arena built for
ice skating, hockey, basketball,
conventions,, concerts or other
entertainment there's no end
to what you could do," he said.
"We could bring in more money
at one event than a, softball
complex brings in all season."
In a later interview, Eason
said he looks at things as some-
one who lives in the city not
as a city councilman. "I get
tired of hearing about everyone
leaving because there's nothing
to do here," he said. "People are
moving here now and we can
either be a part of them or not."
According to Eason, a three-
to-two vote could have doubled
ad-valorem taxes.
"By having that one new
development we also would
have brought in an additional
$300,000 per year in other
fees," he said.
Councilman George Hall
expressed concern over 'the
precedent that could be set by
selling the airport property. "I
don't think we're ready to con-
sider liquidating that asset. Are
we going to sell Donaldson
Park to a commercial develop-
er?" he asked.


Ritenour didn't recall being
called to testify in any hearings
that might have resulted from
the accident.
"I was holding a little
Mexican girl in my arms," he
said, revisiting one of many
scenes from his memory. "This
metal piece was cleat through
her foot." .
Marian Arredondo, then-13,
lost part of her right foot,
according to a news report 10
days after the accident..
"I say it's one of those things
that happen but when there's an
accident where somebody dies,
it's not a thing. It's a tragedy,"
Ritenour said. "It really
impressed upon me how Mr.
(Charles) Reynolds just lost his
son but he knew where his son
was and he stayed on the scene
to continue
to help oth-
ers."
Charles
and Anne
Re'ynolds
had two
sons on Bus

Greg, 5, and
R. REYNOLDS Rob, 6.
SGreg
Reynolds
suffered severe lacerations to
his face, mostly near his eyes,
and received about 100 stitches.
'With the help of his maternal
grandfather, Dr. William G.
Nichols, a surgeon, Greg
Reynolds made a full recovery
and is now an Orlando-based
real estate investor.
"Very few times do I go
through that intersection with-
out thinking about it," Charles
Reynolds said Thursday, stand-
ing over Rob's tombstone
which simply says, "He
Loved."
Reynolds was en route to his


Options
Another possibility Then-'
tioned was the airport expand-
ing its runway to the southwest,
keeping it in compliance with
the law and still allowing
Dilley's property to be devel-
oped.
All of the parties involved
have concerns about ways in
which they will be impacted by
the final outcome. ,
For Dilley, the obvious con-
cern is that he. could be stuck
with a piece of property he
doesn't need and, without
any compensation for the loss
of his business, that is money
he could use.
For the airport not only are
there concerns for public safety
and.compliance with FAA stan-
dards and the consequential
withholding, of grants from
noncompliance, but also tighter
regulations that may -be
imposed if the proposed devel-
opment is established.
Fixed-based operator George
Pope said the airport has 58-60
hangars with planes a total
of 75-80 planes on the field.
"My main concern is that in
three years when houses get
built, there will be more restric-
tions put on the runway," he
said.
Whether or not Nagar will be
permitted to develop his shop-
ping village and condominiums
will be decided by the city
council when more information
is made available.
Dilley's attorney, Bud Furr,
Avon Park, said there are many
facets in trying to harmonize
between all involved and some
avenues haven't been explored.
"It's an enormous process -
we need time t6 look at issues
and come up with a compro-
mise," he said.
All parties, involved have
some homework to do before
anything can be determined.
Macklin said it doesn't seem to
be an immediate interest to sell
the airport at this time, tem-
porarily eliminating one of the
possible solutions.
In a telephone interview with
the News-Sun, Nagar men-
tioned 1,700 acres a few miles
down the road where the airport
could be relocated.
When asked his opinion
about the possibility of moving
to that property, Barben said
that neither the Airport CRA,
nor the city manager, have been
presented with this proposal.


KEVIN SHUTT/News-Sun
Lamar D. Ritenour and his wife Donna look over a copy of the 'Avon Park Sun,' dated Feb. 19, 1976, in
which the article appeared about the tragic accident of Bus No. 11 in Lake Placid. Three children and
the bus driver were killed; several other students were injured. Ritenour was a trooper with Florida
Highway Patrol and was the reporting law enforcement officer.


groves when he came upon the
intersection, where the carnage
spread before him.
"It looked like a disaster
zone," he said. "It looked like
an emergency evacuation exer-
cise."
Anne Reynolds, listening to
this recount, said her husband'
rationalized what he'saw, imag-
ining Ce. er' ihin,', but the obvi-
ous.
"They kind of fell through
the bottom of the bus," Charles
Reynolds said, explaining how
he found his dead son. "Rob, I
just kind of laid him on my
lap."
When it was time to take
Greg to the hospital, 'Charles
Reynolds left Rob and rode the
ambulance with Greg.
"We knew he was with the
Lord," he said.
Later, the state would


approach the Reynolds about
prosecuting Staples for
manslaughter.
"It was a foggy morning and
he made a mistake," Anne
Reynolds said, explaining they
didn't want to press charges.
Good always comes from
tragedy, the couple said,
explaining that the town of
Lake Placid pulled together
during that time of need.
Anne Re', nolds said church
-attendance increased and didn't
lag off after the initial shock of
the accident receded.
A state initiative in the late
'70s required school buses to
install the 'strobe lights that
have a piercing effect through
the Central Florida fog.
Roy Wright, transportation
coordinator for, The School
Board of Highlands County,
said he wasn't sure if the strobe


lights were a direct result of the
tragedy.
At the time, Wright was,
employed by the Seminole
County school system and he'
remembered this incident's
prominence among school offi-L
cials.
"It's the driver's estimate,"
Wright said,-discussing current
procedures for handling fog.
"Ultimately' they're the ones
who have to make the call if
their visibility is affected.'"
Drivers have the option of
pulling 200 feet off of the road
and even delaying pickups until
the-fog clears, he said.
"On a foggy morning I think
about it,". Woods said, explain-
ing that his 14-year-old son now;
rides the bus in Lake Placid.
"Sometimes his mom will just
take him if it's foggy out."

Central Florida
Open MRI
installs new
technology
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Central
Florida Open MRI now adds
upright magnetic resonance
imaging to its list of services
offered.
General manager Andrea
Cox said her facility is the,
100th site to purchase the state-
of-the-art upright MRI. Central
Florida Open' MRI has offered
magnetic resonance imaging,
computerized axial tomography
scans and X-rays since 1998.
This stand-up MRI is patient-
friendly. Fonar Corporation
developed the world's only
whole-body MRI with the abil--
ity to perform positional imag-
irig that used to be difficult or
impossible on conventional
"lie-down" scanners. Patients
can be scanned in a multitude of
positions, including extension,
rotation, lateral and recumbent.
Now they can stand or sit in a
comfortable seated position
watching a 42-inch flat-screen
television throughout the
process. Because of its unique
magnet configuration, there is
nothing in front of the patient's
face or directly overhead to cre-
ate a closed-in feeling. Patients
no longer suffer from claustro-
phobic reactions associated
with tube or tunnel type MRIs,
and they can include patients
weighing as much as 500
pounds.
The upright MRI meets other
special' needs as well. For those
physically unable to lie down,
this is the only scanner that can

accommodate them. Young
children no longer have to be
anesthetized, which also avoids
added, expense and risks.
Infants can be scanned risk-
free, sleeping peacefully on
their mothers' laps through their
scans. Central Florida Open
MRI has registered technolo-
gists and board certified radiol-
ogists who. are accredited by the
American College of
Radiology.
Cox said there is no extra
cost for this type of MRI. It is
the same as others. The scans
usually take about 30 minutes,
and they participate with most
insurance carriers.
"This really helps those peo-
ple who can't lie down because
of pain or breathing problems.
We can have them get- in their
problem position. That's advan-
tageous and b&ause this is a
weight-bearing diagnosis it
gives more information: We
purchased this specialized MRI
to provide an- added diagnostic


imaging tool to help the people
of Highlands County," Cox
said.
MRI is a safe diagnostic tool
that produces, images of a per-
son's body using an effective
yet' safe magnetic field.
Hydrogen atoms within the
body align with the magnetic
field, allowing them to receive
and release radio frequency
energy. By applying short radio
frequency signal pulses to a
specific anatomical part, the
magnetically aligned hydrogen
atoms in the body release these
signals to an antennae coil. The
antennae then send this infor-
mation to a large computer
which assembles 'the informa-
tion into detailed images of the
body.
Central Florida Open MRI is
at 2821 U.S. 27 North (south of
Wal-Mart in the Nextel build-
ing.) Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday. Call
402-0938 to schedule 'an
appointment.

Agency.


Landing a great,



catch at Blue Marlin


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent'
SEBRING Maria and
Larry Parker and Steve Smith
recently opened Blue Marlin
Insurance Agency.
They handle policies for
homeowner's, mobile homes,
recreational vehicles, business
and commercial, autos and
boats.'
The .name was chosen
because of Steve and Larry's
hobby of fishing.,
"And I feel a person is like a
fish out of water without insur-
ance. No matter what a person's
age is or driving record, we can,
provide insurance. We really try
to cater to the needs of our cus-
tomers and treat each person the
way we'd like to be treated. We
like it here because it's a good
hometo% wn atmosphere. And if
somniethin bad happens to- our
custoomers. % e'll still'be here to
help." Smith said.
Bom and raised in Highlands
County, Smith also owns

Judy Thames announced..
AARP volunteers through-,
out the state will be presenting

Sebring agreed with Smith.
"They've never let me down.
My insurance is with them.
.They are honest people and
very good. They always inform
me of my choices. It's a good
agency to do business with,"
Sinay said.
Maria Parker has been in the
insurance business for 15 years.
"Steve has five years insur-
ance experience, and our office
manager, Lisa Albritton has'
been in the insurance business
seven years. Our agents' com-
bined experience is 27 years,


and we use 15 different carriers
in order to offer the most com-
petitive rates. I appreciate the
fact that people attend church

All four Curves locations in Highlands County
will be participating in the Curves Food Drive to
benefit local food banks.
Last year, the Curves Food Drive collected
10.6 million pounds of food for local communi-
ties all over the world. That's almost 3 million
more pounds than the year before.
To celebrate the generosity of the community,
Curves is waiving its normal service fee for any
new member who brings in a large bag of non-
perishable groceries and joins between Feb. 27
through March 11. Last year, more than 251,000
new members joined Curves during the food'
drive.
Others wishing to donate may drop off non-
perishable food items at Curves Monday through
Saturday, during business hours through the
month of March.
"The Curves Food Drive promotion is always
exciting," said Kathie Lawens, the owner of all


iI food drive
Highlands County clubs. "We have a chance to
help so many people at a time when the food
banks are lowest, while we assist more women in
reaching their fitness and weight loss goals. It's a
win-win situation for everyone and we're very
proud to participate."
With nearly 10,000 locations worldwide,
Curves is the largest fitness franchise and the
fastest growing franchise company in history.
More than 4 million women belong to the Curves
community.
The local Curves addresses are as follows;
1019 U.S. 27 South, Avon Park, next to
Fedco, 452-9963;
361 E. Interlake Blvd., Lake Placid, 699-

The Hotel Jacaranda

Restaurant Offers Casual, Elegant Dining
With Southern Hospitality and Old-Style Charm


or nearly 90 years, the Hotel
J Jacaranda has carried on the
tradition of serving fine food with
true Southern hospitality and the
casual, elegant charm of the past.
. Since 1926, the Hotel Jacaranda
has played host to baseball great Babe
Ruth, Hollywood legend Clark Gable,
and comedians George Burns and'
Gracie Alien, and major league baseball
teams. The storied hotel is listed on the
National Registry of Historic Places,
and the Miami Herald has declared it to
be "the most important example of
Revivalist Architecture in Florida."
Buffet-style lunch and dinner are
served in the Palm Room and Citrus
Room. They provide all-you-can-eat


portions of fresh dinner salads,
Southern-fried chicken, an assortment.
of side dishes, choice of desserts, and a
beverage. Special entrees change daily.
The Hotel Jacaranda can accommo-
date single diners to large groups. It
has three conference rooms that can be
reserved for meetings, business
luncheons, bridal showers, wedding
receptions, or any large gathering.
Close to antique and boutique
shops and right on Avon Park's mile-
long mall, the Hotel Jacaranda is the.
, perfect stop for shoppers and browsers.
And because it's minutes from SFCC's
Highlands Campus, it's a convenient
place to dine before Matinee Series
performances and any evening show.

Avon Park American Legion Auxiliary Unit 69 education chairman Grace Jackson and Unit 69
President Darlene Watkin meet with the third-grade teachers and students at Park Elementary in
Avon Park to see what they would like in educational tools for their class and they chose a colorful
book called 'Birth of America.' This book has work programs, games and literature to let the kids
have fun and learn at the same time. The best part is they get to keep their book. The Ladies
Auxiliary have long worked with the youth at all grade levels to assist in raising money for learning
tools. The ladies also volunteered to come back to Park to be 'proctors' for one full week while test-
ing is being done. Meeting with Jackson and Watkin are teachers Lacy Virkler, Courney
Murfield,Tracy Encapera, Dolor Nendza, Delilah Marquez, Karen Smith and Nancy Whalen and
students Hannah Headley, Miriam Hernandez, Vonterrica Claitt, Amie Gibson, Tyler Langston,

dates, the first time behind the
wheel and first jobs. However,
all of these "firsts" are accom-
panied by one thing money.
That's why it is important for
teens to learn how to save
money, use credit wisely, and
yes, pay dues to Uncle Sam.
Mike Sullivan, director of
education for Take Charge
America, a non-profit credit
counseling company, says par-
ents should not only teach their
children how to pay taxes, but
explain why it is necessary.
"Paying taxes' is a part of
proper money management. It
is a life skill carried well into
adulthood," Sullivan said.
"Teens need to know that taxes
pay for government services,
including highways, parks and
law enforcement."
If your teen receives W-
2's, 1099's or other statements


because as income increases,
the tax laws become increasing-
ly complicated," Sullivan said.
"Staying out of debt is a year-,
round effort. It includes being
responsible for every aspect for
your finances, including taxes,
no matter how minor or compli-
cated they appear."
Sullivan says there are four
things working teens need to
know about income taxes:
Nuts and bolts
After landing a job, you need
to fill out a W-4 form with your
employer. At the beginning of
the following year, you will
receive a W-2 form from each
job held. In addition, taxes are
taken out of each paycheck
throughout the year.
Tips are taxable
Many teens find jobs waiting
tables or delivering food. These


Using a tax refund
wisely
Federal taxes are taken out of
pay checks throughout the-year.
If you file a tax return, a por-
tion, if not all, of the federal
income tax money can be
returned. Teaching your teen
how to use tax refunds wisely is
another money management
skill needed later in life.
Adjust your
withholding
If you have too little money
taken out of your check
throughout the year, you'll owe
the government money when it
is time to file your taxes. On the
other hand, if too much money
is withheld, you'll get a larger
refund. While this sort of
"forced saving" may seem a
good idea, that's money you

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Journey or

destination?
Hiking is challenging,
adventurous and often leads
to destinations of incredible
beauty. Three rugged, steep
and endless hikes come to
mind. Reaching the destina-
tion seemed the only viable
reason for making the trip.
In fact, on the hike we
took last autumn in
Colorado, I remember ask-
ing a fellow hiker who had
once been to the top, "Is it
worth it?" I expected her to
reply in glowing terms
about what we'd see when
we got there. Her answer
surprised me.
"There's nothing particu-
larly spectacular to see. But,
you'll feel glad you com-
pleted the climb."
In her reply, I found the
answer to why I enjoy hik-
ing. It's the journey not just
the destination that matters.
As I walk along in the
hush of the forest, lush
scenery surrounds me. My
ears are tuned to the bab-
bling of a brook or stream.
My hands reach out to
caress the textures of tree
branches or watch the flight
of birds.
Evergreens shout out a
sense of timelessness; while
other varieties brilliantly
display fall coats and
swirling leaves dancing
overhead and around my
feet remind me of the
inevitable changes on the
way. Snow will soon blan-
ket everything in pristine
white.
In life's seasons, it's also
the journey and not just the
destination that matters. If
we have our heads in. the_
clouds about the future,
we'll mibs, the present. If
we're. not careful to occa-
sionally look over our
shoulder to see where we've
been, we may miss the les-
sons meant to spur us today
into the waiting future.
As Ken and I look to the
years ahead- we wonder and
dream how God may choose
to use us in our retirement
years. We see how his hand
has led us all along as we
peek over our shoulders at
the past. We imagine what
the future may hold. But, if
we're not careful, we'll miss
the present and the beauty
surrounding us.
Now is where the past
and its lessons are lived out.
Now is the preparation for
the future. But, it's also
viable for its own sake and
purpose.
"There is a time for
everything, and a season for
every activity under heav-
en." (Ecclesiastes 3: 1, NIV)
As I recall that autumn
hike, I'm glad I didn't give
up. I appreciated my hus-
band's pat on the back for
completing the climb well. I
learned perseverance, team-
work, caring for one another
and being stretched beyond
my comfort zone lessons
equally important for life's
journey.
Once life's "climb" is
completed, I want to heat
God say, "Well done, good
and faithful servant; enter
into the joy of your lord."
(Matthew 25: 21, NKJV)
Then the journey and the
destination will culminate
into one incredible celebra-
tion. Selah.

AVON PARK

director at Avon Park
Middle School, and
Vealda Lambright, his
aide and ally in keeping their
young musicians on point and
in tune, are thrilled that their
students' hard work is paying
off in a big way.
The Avon Park Middle
School's Jazz Band, has been
selected to perform at Disney
World in Orlando Monday.
The 20-member ensemble
will play a 25-minute set of
seven numbers for the pleasure
of an audience at the theme
park's Cosmic Rays Cafe, part
bf the celebration of Disney's
Magic Music Days.
The jazz band was selected
from a field of other appli-
cants, all of whom had to sub-
mit an audition::tape; photo-

Kevin Collier has led the Avon Park Middle School band program
for three years, with the help of Vealda Lambright (in the back-
ground). He rehearses the 25-minute program which includes the
themes from 'Peter Gunn' and 'James Bond,' 'El Gato Gordo' (the
fat cat), 'Rockin' in the USA' and 'Wade in the Water.'

phones, four trumpets, two flutes, one French horn, two key-

grades, and all of them have
been playing their instruments
for only a year or two ...
'Despite their lack of experi-
ence, the 20 boys .ind ,'irl
combine to create a wonderful
sound.
Collier credits the student's
focus and dedication, and can't
keep the pride out of his voice
when he talks about their


progress.
Lambright agreed, and then
added, quietly, when Collier is
out of earshot, that the
teacher's lea.idei ship has just as
much to do v. iil)
Collier has been teaching at
Avon Park Middle School for
three years.
Raised in Winter Haven he
first taught in Hardee County,
then at Sebririg High School.


Being music director at the
high school level, however,
didn't leave him enough time
for his family, which is why he
was pleased to accept the posi-
tion at Avon Park.
Collier earned a bachelor's
of music education from
Florida State University in
Tallahassee where he was prin-
ciple tuba in iiL un't i e ',il s
symphony orchestra, wind
orchestra, symphonic band,
pep band, and the famous
Marching Chiefs.

The River City Brass Band
has a long history of delighting
audiences with its signature
style.
According to the Englewood
Performing Arts Series of
Englewood, "They are simply
one of the most outstanding
musical organizations we have
ever booked over the paso 20
years."
In 1981, a musical renais-
sance took place in Pittsburgh,
when, under the baton of con-
ductor Robert Berat, the River
City Brass took to the Carnegie
Music Hall stage for its inaugu-
ral concert Nov. 21. It was an
evening of musical excellence
and determination to bring
about the revival of the grass-
roots tradition of the American
brass band.
In 1981, there were less than
1,000 such performance groups
throughout the United States,
while throughout the rest of the
world the genre was flourish-
ing. The River City Brass Band
was determined to foster a sim-
ilar appreciation at home in
Pittsburgh.
That determination has paid
off. Today, under the direction
of Music Director and
Conductor Denis Colwell, the
River City Brass Band per-

forms a 49-concert series in
seven Western Pennsylvania
venues.
In addition, the 28-piece
ensemble tours extensively
throughout the United States,
with more than 60 performanc-
es each year as part of commu-
nity concert series, major sym-
phony pops series, and arts fes-
tivals.
The band toured overseas in
1988 when, together with The
Chicago Symphony Orchestra,
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir
and The Twyla Tharp Dance
Company, it represented the
United States at the celebration
of Australia's Bicentennial.
During its month-long tour
"down under," the River City


The River City Band features cornet players who help bring about
the revival of the American brass band.


Brass Band won rave reviews
for its performance at the
Adelaide Festival, the Sydney
Opera House, Melbourne's
Moomba Festival, the
Queensland Performing Arts
Center in Brisbane and the New
Zealand International Festival
of the Arts.
The band has appeared on
The Today Show, NPRs
Performance Today, Voice of
'America and the New Zealand
Broadcasting Corporation.
The River City Brass Band is
known for its recordings and
original compositions. To date,
it has released 15 recordings
that are distributed nationally
and internationally. The band
has been responsible for nearly
200 compositions and arrange-
ments by American and British
composers which have pre-
miered at River City Brass
Band concerts. Many of these
works have since been pub-
lished and are performed by
brass bands throughout the
world.
This performance is co-spon-
sored by Dr. and Mrs. Rulx
Ganthier, Jr., and by the Alan
Jay Automotive Network.

Planning spring vegetable garden updating existing gardens


Few things more satisfying to
a home gardener, than to wan-
der out to the vegetable garden
and harvest and consume the
fruits of their labor. Successful
vegetable gardening involves
far more than popping a few
seeds in the ground and waiting
for the plants to appear.
In planning a garden, consid-
er what and how much to plant.
It is better to have a well main-
tained, small garden than a
large one neglected and full of
weeds. Usually, the garden
should be surrounded by a suf-
ficiently high fence with close
mesh to keep out dogs, rabbits,
and other animals. A fence also
can serve as a trellis for beans,
peas, tomatoes, and other crops
that need support.
Benefits of starting with
plants rather than seeds:
Sow seed indoors during
cool weather, then move them


outdoors, when
weather warms up.
Transplants *
give higher early '."
yields, and, in the
case of watermelons, |
give larger fruits.
Since the
seedbe,d produces
many more plants,
only the very best GRO
ones may be chosen. SEN
Obtain a small
number of plants;
where only a few High
plants are needed, County
from a nursery or Gard
grown in a seedbed.
The cost of expensive seeds
may be saved in this way.
The disease-free, precise
environment of a planting pot is
more ideal for seed germination
and seedling growth than is the
garden soil.
Seedlings thinned from


Va







lcr


over-crowded areas
may be moved to fill
in bare spots.
4 Transplanting sug-
gestions:
Most vegeta-
bles are ready to set in
.- the garden when they
are 4-6 weeks old. Set
only the best plants
ING that are strong,
on stocky, vigorous and
ON. disease free. Tomato
- plants 4-5 weeks old
inds grow and yield better.
Vlaster Avoid disturbing
rners roots when transplanti-
- ng. When removing

plants from boxes or flats, block
out the soil by cutting squares.
If individual plants containers
are used, moisten the soil before
'planting in the garden.

February garden checklist
Transplant cold-hardy


trees and scrubs.
Prune roses, if needed,
before Feb. 15.
Prune crepe myrtles.
Prepare vegetable garden
for spring planting, till soil and
add organic matter.
Start vegetables and flow-
ers transplants from seed.
Control scab disease on
citrus.
Observe new growth for


aphid infestation.
Watch for azalea petal
blight.
M Control color of
hydrangeas with fertilizer.
Fertilize mature citrus
trees.

If you have a plant that you
would like for one of the Master
Gardeners to write about or if
you have gardening questions,

Florida-grown strawberries, cabbage make great dishes


Recipes to try to

delight taste buds

I love trying new recipes. I
find myself buying products
from the grocery store that I
would usually never buy when
I'm trying out something new.
One thing I try to do when I'm
shopping in the produce section
is buy fresh fruit and vegetables
grown in Florida. So, I thought
I would share some recipes to
help you utilize foods grown in
Florida.
The next few months are a
great time to find fresh, Florida
cabbage and strawberries. They
can add a lot of nutritional
value to a meal (although I
wouldn't necessarily suggest
eating them together). Cabbage
is low in calories, free of sodi-
um and fat, and rich in fiber and
vitamin C.
It contains iron, calcium, and
potassium, along with benefi-
cial phytochemicals that may
inhibit the growth of breast,
stomach, and colon cancers.
Cabbage soothes ulcers and
improves digestion.


Low in calories and free of
sodium and fat, strawberries are
packed with potassium, fiber,
folic acid, and powerful, dis-
ease-fighting antioxidants.
Ounce for ounce, they've got
more vitamin C than oranges.
The following recipes are
supplied by the Florida
Department of Agricultural and
Consumer Services, Division of
Marketing and Development,
www.florida-agriculture.comrn


Steamed Cabbage Wraps
4 Florida cabbage leaves
1/2 pound deli turkey, sliced


1/4 pound jalapeno cheese,
sliced

Cut the rib out of the cabbage
leaf. Place between two damp
paper towels and steam in the
microwave for 30 seconds. On
each leaf, place a slice of
turkey, a slice of onion, a slice
of tomato, and a slice of cheese.
Roll up. Place filled leaves in a


dish and microwave
for 20 seconds.
Serves two. C.

Local libraries offer help, hope, information and encouragement


This is International
Friendship Week with
Presidents Day, and George
Washington's Birthday, also
observed. In the spirit of friends
helping friends, your Heartland
Library Cooperative libraries
offer you help and hope, infor-
mation, and encouragement in
our life-changing non-fiction
books. What could-we possibly
have that you might really need
to know? We have the. latest
edition from Joseph Pippen,
Jr.'s "Ask an Attorney" radio
series, called "Ask an Attorney
All About Florida Law." Here is
information on Florida law for
visitors and new residents on
such subjects as condominiums,
dual residences, and wills. Find
out your rights when it comes to
dog bites, hurricane police pow-
ers, video wills, alimony, and
lots of other important-to-you


subjects.
Tax specialist Holmes F.
Crouch's "Living Wills &
Trusts" can help you understand
executor and trustee roles, com-
pare wills and trusts, understand
intestate succession, the taxa-
tion and probate processes, and
know how to write your own
will.
If you've been alarmed by
stories of identity theft, then
take home the Rob Hamadi
book, "Identity Theft," and
learn just what it is, how to pre-
vent it, and most importantly,
what to do if it happens to you.
Here's the lowdown on credit
card cloning, wising up on what
shouldn't be put in your trash,
Cashpoint/ATM fraud, and
online identity theft. The stories
will raise the hair on the back of
your neck and, we hope, also
raise your awareness of how to


protect yourself and
your loved ones.
Tracing Uncle
Roger is going to be
a lot easier now that
you, as a library card
owner, can check out
"Genealogy Online
for Dummies,"
which introduces
you to family history
centers, how to find
answers to your sur-
name questions,
where to begin find-


LIBRARY LINES
Carolyn
Hesselink


ing genealogical
information on Hispanic ances-
tors, researching fraternal
orders, using photographs as a
research aid, checking out
adoption records, and places to
post your queries online.
Do you know anyone who's
been on a cruise? Our hunter
travel guide, "Cruising Alaska,"


it's all
form.


will answer just about
any question you
might have, begin-
ning with a brief his-
tory of Alaska (why
would you want to go
there? Find out here).
Learn about the vari-
ous cruise lines and
which ones have the
best accommodations,
the ports of call, some
of the small ship
lines, shopping,
prices, itineraries, vis-
itor information -
here in very readable


So, you are staying home,
thank you, so what could we
have to help you? Here's one
thought decrease the possi-
bility of falls and increase your
flexibility with the Dr. Karl
Knopf book, "Stretching for


50+." This book was written for
anyone who doesn't want to go
to a gym, but understands that
maintaining balance and flexi-
bility is the key to a long, active
life. If you can stand, sit, or lie
down, there's a stretching activ-
ity for you that may make a
huge difference. Grab that soft,
squeezable object (no, not your
mate), and strengthen your
hands, and forearms. We live in
Florida, so learn to do the Palm
Tree, qr how about the Double
Wood Chop? It's all here' and
it's all good.
Two books that every adult
could learn from, are: "The
Stress-Free Home: Beautiful
Interiors for Serenity and


Harmonious Living" by Jackie
Craven, and Randall Koll's
book, "The Organized Home:
Design Solutions for Clutter-
free Living."
Come enjoy the paintings at
. the library by students at Anne
Watson Studio in Avon Park.

istrative secretary of the

Since its founding in 1975,
Skip Barber-trained drivers*
have not only won every major
United States road racing cliam-
pionship, but on average, a third
of the drivers in the Indy 500
and any Nextel Cup race are
Barber graduates.

Sebring International
Raceway is the oldest perma-
nent road racing track in North
America, evolving from a
World War II air base. The
annual 12 Hours of Sebring is
an endurance race, and part of
the prestigious American Le
Mans Series.
All the legends have raced at
Sebring: Mario Andretti, A. J.
Foyt, Dan Gurney, Surling
Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio,
Phil Hill and dozens of other
international motor racing leg-
ends. They have drove race cars
built by the world's great manu-
facturers such, as Ferrari,
Porsche, Jaguar, Audi, Ford,
Maserati, Aston Martin and
Nissan.
The 12 Hours of Sebring fea-
tures the American Le Mans
Series, with support races
including the SPEED World
Challenge GT and Touring
Series, Panoz GT Pro Series,
Formula Dodge National
Championship, Star Mazda,
and the Cooper Championship
Series.

Snug that seat belt and hang on


* Commentary
By BOB CARPENTER
N,, ,s. S:, correspondent
SEBRING For the last 21
years the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce. has promoted a
fund-raiser called "Ride the
Racetrack" in cooperation with
the Sebring Raceway and Skip
Barber. ,
You're given a fast two-lap
tour of the track that provides
sensations of real racing. It's an
irresistible attraction for car
enthusiasts, race fans, and thrill
seekers of all types.
On the way to the track I
deluded myself with visions of
being behind the wheel of a
powerful race car, but of course
that was just ... well, delusion-
al. You can imagine the liabili-
ty, not to mention the carnage,
of permitting a novice whose
enthusiasm far outweighs his


ability to, scream uninitiated
through the 17 turns of Sebring
International Raceway.
Besides, as I learned, half the
fun of "Ride the Racetrack" is
in accompanying a real pro in
action.
My 'chauffeur was Skip
Barber Training School's chief
instructor, Terry Earwood. For
the last 22 years Earwood has
raced everything from dragsters
on quarter miles to Porsche
944s on road courses. He's won
seven races at Sebring.
"This is my favorite course,"
he said. Obviously he knows it
well. .
Preparing to leave the pit
area, we buckle ourselves into a
blood red Dodge SRT-4. To the
casual obser\ er it appears little
different from an ordinary
Dodge Neon, but this is a facto-
ry-modified version with a


turbo-charged engine that
pumps out 230 horsepower and
beefed-up brakes, and suspen-
sion to handle the increased
performance. Not exactly a race
car, but for our purpose it has
all the capability necessary.
Earwood eases onto the track
for a lap at civilized speeds,
pointing out features of the
track and nuances of racing.
There are pylons placed at
strategic points indicating brak-
ing points and apexes.
At ultra-high racing speeds
you have to look ahead for
these markers, Earwood
explains, and demonstrates how
to properly set up for a turn and
the quickest way through. "In
competition you challenge
yourself on each lap to be better
:.. quicker," he said.

Accidental shooting just that an accident


It's not that I
don't think the
press should be


LAURA'S LOOK


covering the story Lura
about Vice
President Dick
Cheney accidental-
ly shooting a fellow hunter over
the weekend. I would agree that
given one of our leaders is
involved that this is a story
worth reporting.
What puzzles me is how it
has blown up to the kind of
story I would expect to see if it
had been deliberate and the vic-
tim had died.
Look, you are talking about
people walking around a heavi-
ly wooded area with guns. It-
seems to me that an accident is
not without the realm of possi-
bility.
Accidents are possible even
with something like a BB rifle
in a backyard. I know what I am
talking about. Last year, my son
James was shooting his BB rifle
in the backyard. While he was
aiming at a target, a wasp or
other kind of insect got curious


SWare


and came close.
Too close. Startled,
James jerked the
rifle back and
rammed the scope


into his eye.
He dropped the
rifle and came running into the
house, hand over his eye.
Concerned mother that I am, I
asked him what happened, but
for a few minutes the only
response I could get out of him
was "AAAAAAAAAA-
AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!" I came to
the brilliant conclusion that he
had injured himself in some
form or fashion.
Eventually I got the story out
of him. A subsequent trip to the
eye doctor showed that he had
actually torn the retina of his
eye, requiring laser surgery.
James was assured that only a
few people felt anything from
laser surgery. Unfortunately, he
was one of the few.
But everything is fine now.
and James' vision seems to be
unaffected. We are also now
aware of the value of eye pro-


tection even for shooting your
BB rifle in the backyard.
So, back to the vice presi-
dent. My point in telling this
stor (which is not to embarrass
my youngest, no matter how it
looks) is that guns + people =
occasional accidents. What
happened is terrible and tragic,
and our prayers are with Mr.
Whittington. Fortunately, it
looks like he will recover.
But the press is going nuts'.
They are asking a number of
questions. Some of them might
be good questions. But the one
question that has me scratching
my head is "why weren't we
told first?"
You see, the story about the
shooting was given first to a
local paper on Sunday. It
occurred on Saturday night. It
seems as if they think Vice
President Cheney should have
picked up the phone Saturday
night and called CBS; .ABC,
NBC, FOX, and the other major
affiliates and told them about
this right away. This while he
was coping with what had hap-


opened and while he was waiting
for word on his friend's condi-
tion.
Some laughable accusations
have been leveled at people in
this. One of the funniest is that
the story was given to a local
paper to bury the story. Maybe
that would be a viable theory 20
years ago. But this is the age of
the Internet, people. Anybody
can set up a blog and share
what's'going on in their part of
the world with everyone else
(mine can be,' found at
http://lauraslook.blogspot.
corn/). Does anyone really think
a story like this would remain a
secret?
Yes, the press should cover
the story. But let's cover it as it
is a story of a tragic accident,
not a story of evil personified.
And yqu hunters let's be
careful out there, OK?

Evolution is a

false religion

Editor:
Is evolution a false religion?
Evolution is taught in every
public high school and liberal
university in our country.
Christian young men and
women are taught this in a sci-
ence class and science is sup-
posed to be right.
We are here to say that it is
not right at all. There are no
links tying one species to
another. There is no ptoof of
any of it, nor the big bang "the-
ory." God declares that every-
thing shall be brought forth
after "its kind."
God, otir creator, has written
through inspiration in the Bible
in the book of Genesis the full.
c\planatjo'r olf ii '. %ork and"
plan for mankind. In six days
he made it all. A perfect cre-
ation, until man and woman
brought sin into the world by
disobedience to God the cre-
ator. They tried to covpr up
their sinful nature with fig
leaves.
Isn't that what is happening
now today in our schools? We
are trying to cover ourselves
and avoid God by teaching that
the earth came into being by
chance and evolution. It is a
false religion that steals away
the faith that. our children were
taught at home and in church.
This false religion is evolution.
Even as Christmas tries to
replace the Christ by teaching
Santa Claus is the great giver
and Easter has a substitute for
the great Savior by displaying
bunnies and chicks and even
Thanksgiving leaving out the
great provider. This teaching
removes all accountability of
mankind to God.
Children need to be taught
Genesis and learn the real truth
from God's Words. Our ances-
tots built a great country based
on their knowledge of the
Bible. They learned to read
from the Bible. They had faith
in God and the Lord Jesus
Christ. To reject him or turn
him aside for false teachings
brings our nation into peril and
offers no hope for our children
and grandchildren. If they are
descended from apes, what will
motivate them to live a decent,
clean and worthwhile life?
Where will they spend eterni-
ty? Jesus said, "I am the way,
the truth and the life. No Iman
cometh unto the Father, but by
me." John 14:6.,
As for me, "God said it, I
believe it and that settles it for
me."

Many help with

Dewberry lunch
Editor:
I would like to take this
opportunity to "thank" every-
one that attended the Donna
Dewberry Luncheon at the
Quality Inn and Suites


Conference Center to benefit
the Maria Dewberry Children's
Foundation. We all had a great
time, lots of laughs, great food,
so many door prizes and silent
auction items. Tickets sales
raised $1,000, and the silent
auction items raised $502.
A special thank you goes out
to Tim Raible, manager of the
Quality Inn. He donated the
room for the luncheon and din-
ner for two at the Trax Lounge.
Peggy and Kate were great to
work with and helped in putting
this all together. The chef and
his staff did another great job.
I would like to also thank the
vendors at the Alligator Antique
Mall for donated door prizes for
the event. Laura and Dave

the need for energy h
independence.
The president's
strategy to wean
America from the dreaded
addiction to foreign oil involves
hydrogen and ethanol. Did any-
one hear the president seriously
address "conservation" strate-
gies?
Me neither.
Hydrogen is a pipedream.
Hydrogen' is not a source of
energy. It only offers a way to
transport energy. Hydrogen
atoms do not roam alone. They
bond with everything. Energy,
such as electricity, must be
introduced to break hydrogen, s
bond on the atomic level. When
liberated, the hydrogen. atom
can be transported to deliver
energy elsewhere, but not with-
out complication. In a frozen
state, hydrogen can be trans-
ported, but that takes energy. It
can also be transported. when
constrained under high pres-
sure, but that introduces a risk

of catastrophic
explosion.
The president
stated: "With' a
new national com-
mitment, our sci-


entists and engi-
neers will overcome obstacles
to taking these (hydrogen) cars
from laboratory to showroom,
0 so that the first car driven by a
child bom today could be pow-
ered by hydrogen, and pollu-
tion-free." Please tell the presi-
dent that there are no "obstacles
to taking these cars from the
laboratory to the showroom."
The obstacle is in taking hydro-
gen to the car. As a transporta-
tion module for energy, 'hydro-
gen fails miserably.
The energy needed to disen-
tangle hydrogen from its atom-
ic neighbors will likely come
from coal (messy and costly).
That,s life under the Second
Law of Thermodynamics. The
president is not likely to repeal
the Second Law. Hydrogen will
not break the dependence on
foreign oil.
Bush also favors ethanol.

Regretfully, the corn needed for
ethanol does not just crop up. It
requires" intensive, soil-deplet-
ing 'agricultural practices. The
corn must be planted, cultivat-
ed, fertilized, harvested,
processed into fuel, and then
delivered to the consumer.
Nutrients are necessarily
restored to the land before
planting the next crop.
According to Cornell Professor
David Pimentel, 'ethanol offers
a net energy loss. 'Pimentel
demonstrates that ethanol pro-

The only way. to break the
state of dependence is with the

The money allocated to the
war in Iraq could have mean-
ingfully improved efficiencies,
urban designs, mass transit, iand
truly renewable forms of energy
(like wind and solar). This
might have broken the depend-
ence upon foreign oil.
Energy dependence is based
upon two factors: per capital
consumption and the number of
capital. While we must each
practice conservation, people
Will remain the "multiplier."
The dependence upon foreign


oil influenced the president to
invade a foreign nation for their
resource. -Does anyone think
our troops would be in Iraq if its
major export was broccoli?
The president's addictive
dependence on foreign oil is
coupled with a state of denial. If
he seriously wanted to reduce
U.S. dependence on foreign oil,
then he would work on reduc-
ing the nation, s demand. This
requires conservation and an
end to the era of mass immigra-
tion.
The president, s immigration
policy conflicts with his stated
policy of reducing U.S. depend-
ence. Immigration is principally
responsible for a projected 23
percent increase in U.S. popula-
tion in 25 years. Thus, even if
every U.S. citizen could reduce


personal energy consumption
by 23 percent by 2031, mass
immigration would render our
dependence unchanged.
The president's plan unveiled
in the State of the Union speech
remains hopelessly addicted to
a cure without- conservation.
How soon will market condi-
tions force dreaded "C-word"
strategies into the president's
State of the Union speech?
The president will have to
make a choice: either yield to
foreign oil addiction or yield to
immigration reform.

Class 1A State Wrestling Championships


Mikula




finishes




second

By SCOTT DRESSEL and
JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun
LAKELAND Tim Mikula certainly
didn't act like a wrestler in his first state
tournament.
Sebring's 189-pound junior made the
most of his debut appearance in the Class
1A finals with an unexpected run to the
championship bout before falling 11-1 to
top-ranked Jonathan Velazquez of Jupiter
Christian Saturday night at the Lakeland
Center.
Velazquez scored a takedown and a
near fall and then got another takedown to
go up 7-1 in the first period. Mikula twice'
avoided a pin and the match had to be
stopped several times to stop bleeding
inside Mikula's mouth.
Mikula was already planning his strate-
gy for getting back to the state finals next
year and finishing what he started this sea-
son.
"I don't care about a silver medal," he
said. "That just means I'm first loser.
(Velazquez) trained hard and earned it and
that's what I have to do. I'll be going run-
ning in the morning before church."
Sebring head coach Dave Cunningham
likes the progress Mikula has made.
"Kid's a beast," Cunningham said of
Velazquez. "Velazquez's closest match
this year was 7-1. (Mikula) wrestled well.
He wanted to wrestle the best he could and

he peaked at the right time.
"Considering the fact (Mikula) had a
hurt ankle and knee, he really sucked it, up
and wrestled three great matches at state.
He hung in there as tough as he could
against this kid."
Mikula advanced to the finals with a
pair of wins Friday that registered on both
extremes of the satisfaction meter.
His dominating 10-3 decision over


Brian Rolle of Immokalee in the quarterfi-
nals Thursday morning may have been the
second-best match Mikula wrestled all
season, right behind his 12-2 major deci-
sion over Ronald-Andore St. Gerard of
Hollywood-Chaminade in Thursday's first
round.
"He beat (Rolle) earlier in the year by

Streaks fall

to Palmetto
By SCOT" DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING It all started
innocently enough with a rou-
tine ground ball that was mis-
played to lead off the top of the
fifth inning.
But that miscue by the
Sebring defense opened the
door to six unearned runs
before the inning was over,
turning the Streaks' 1-0 lead
into a 6-1 loss to District 10-4A
foe Palmetto Friday night.
Freshman right-hander Nikki
Helms had things ,,Icti,
in control for .
Sebring up until
that point, allow-
ing just one hit 'i!
against four
strikeouts in the -
first four innings.
But the error on Carley
Hamilton's ground ball gave
the Tigers (5-0 overall, 3-0 in
the district) an extra out that
they turned into a two-run
Sebring error, two singles, a
run-scoring double'and a two-
run triple to take over the game.
"The defense hung our pitch-
er out and then they started hit-
ting her hard," Sebring coach
Lee Tolar said. "The girls are
playing good ball. We didn't hit
the ball as well as we could, but
we're going to work on it."
Sebring (3-3, 2-1) got three
of its six hits in the first inning,

size the tournament as a whole,
not the night's less-than-com-
petitive feature game.
"We come here every year
and I think out of six years
we've only won it twice. The
bracket we were in, it was great
to come through and win. The
night got away in the first
inning but the other two games
... those were good games,"
said Rewis.
As for the continuing tourna-
ment theme of "focus," Rewis
knows that there's a limit to
team intensity in certain situa-
tions.
"Sometimes it's hard to tell
them to stay focused right then,
but you just try to keep improv-
ing and playing with class
because it's going to happen to
everybody sometimes," said
Rewis when asked about stay-
ing sharp with such a big lead.
"You're going to end up on
one side or the other if you
keep playing long enough."
Avon Park 5
Lake Region 2
There was already a mild air
of disappointment around the
Avon Park camp as Friday
night's third place game began.
The Devils knew they had
blown a chance to face Sebring
in the championship game due
to their lackluster performance
the night before in a loss to
Lake Placid.
Determined to make the best
of the situation, the Devils went
on to play smooth defense and
deliver some dramatic and
unexpected offensive muscle to
beat the Lake Region Thunder
5-2..
Lanky lefty Johnny Sedlock
provided the arm strength as
well as the foot speed, just
barely sliding under a tag at
third base after a Matt Devlin
RBI single in the fourth. The
Devils then tacked on three
more runs in a drawn-out fifth
due in part to the. sloppy
defense of the Thunder (two
wild pitches and two errors).
The big moment came when
center fielder Lee Albritton
stepped up in the sixth inning
with-one out and launched a
home run to left center.
There was a lot to smile
about after the game, even if it
was bittersweet for coach Mort
Jackson as his team lived up to
his own high expectations.
"That's how I, as a coach,
expect us to play every time we
'come out here. We didn't get
that performance last night and
we had to settle for third
place," jie said. "Believe me,
we would have much rather
been playing Sebring for the
championship tonight."

one point and everyone was
saying that kid is wrestling so
much better now than he was
then and he was going to give
Tim trouble, but I told them
Tim is wrestling a lot better
now, too," Sebring coach Dave
Cunningham said.
But Friday night's 4-2 semi-
final win over Justin Mowles of
Live Oak-Suwanee, which
should have been a reason to
celebrate, was far from it.
Mikula called it the worst
match he's wrestled all. year.
"I'm 10 times better than that
guy," he said after holding on
for the win.
Nursing his two-point cush-
ion, Mikula narrowly avoided
being in a tie match late in the
third period when a Mowles
takedown was ruled out of
bounds.
Sebring 140-pqunder Brad
Hicks' state tournament ended
one step short of a medal
Saturday morning with an 8-6


in part to her own good defense
as she snagged four solid shots
to turn would-be hits into outs.
"Their pitcher was like a vac-
uum," Tolar said. "We hit a lot
of balls up the middle, which is
what we want, but that pitcher
just made great plays."
Kendall Carson pitched 2'h
innings of one-hit relief for the
Streaks.


loss to Nick Christian of
Jacksonville-Archbishop
McCarthy, but Hicks was fortu-
nate that it didn't end a day ear-
lier.
Following his 4-3 loss to
Lucas Paladino of Fort
Lauderdale-Cardinal Gibbons
in the quarterfinals Friday
morning, Hicks was disquali-
fied by the official when he
threw down his anklet and then
his headgear in disgust after
allowing some scoring chances
- and a late lead to slip
away in the defeat.
Hicks was allowed back into
the tourney after an unofficial
protest by the Sebring coaches
led to private talk between the
offended official and Hicks. He
responded to his second chance
with a solid 9-5 defeat of Jesse
Graham of Hernando to live
another day.
"It was a rough (day)," Hicks
said after beating Graham. "I
wasn't going to let it happen to
me again."


The unstable weather of the past
couple of weeks has really played
havoc with bass fishing as several
days of strong winds kept most
anglers off the water. We need an end
to this unpredictable weather so that
we can get back to chasing bass and
specks without having to brush the
frost off the bait.
The cold fronts that came through
sent the bass into deeper water. When OUTI
the weather and the water warm up to
normal temperatures for February, the Lloyd
fish are going to be hungry and will
return to their normal feeding habits.
The body temperature of a bass is the same as'
the water it lives in, so when the water tempera-
ture is low, bass get lethargic and their, reaction
to any bait will be very sluggish. Slow retrieves
while using artificial baits and lures are neces-
sary for now because the bass are nearly impos-
sible to entice regardless what bait is used.
There have been a lot of large bass caught
this winter season, but so far no one has come
close to catching a state-record bass. The unoffi-
cial record is held by Fred Friebel, who caught a
monster of a bass weighing 20.13 pounds while
fishing in Big Fish Lake in Pasco County. This
happened way back in May of 1923.
The official state record largemouth bass was
taken from an unnamed lake in Polk County on
July 6, 1986 by Billy O'Berry. It weighed in at
17.27 pounds. With the great number of bass
fishermen in central Florida, it seems as'though
someone would surely have broken these
records by now.
The lakes here in central Florida are the most
likely waters to produce record bass. East Lake
Tohopekaliga has probably produced more big
bass over 14 pounds than any other lake in the
area. Locally, Lake Arbuckle has produced bass
in the 16-pound range, so it is surprising that
Arbuckle has such little fishing pressure.
We know that Lake Istokpoga harbors huge
bass. A fish in the 12-pound range is not unusu-


a for the largest lake in our county,
which is nationally known as a big
bass lake.
Catching big bass seems to just
*' come naturally to a fisherman we
.' have watched as he traveled the pro-
'.A fessional bass tournament trail. He has
enjoyed phenomenal success in his
career spanning 35 years. The nine-
time Angler of the Year, Roland
DOORS Martin has retired from tournament
-- .competition, saying, "I just felt like it
d Jones was time to go."
- In pro tournaments, Martin has fin-
ished in first place 19 times, winning
$785,000 in cash awards plus $54,000 in tourna-
ment bonus cash. He also won $225,000 in miner-
chandise and has lived a life that all bass fisher-
men. envy.
Martin is a member of the Professional Bass
Fishing Hall of Fame and the Freshwater
Fishing'Hall of Fame. Just last year, fans select-
ed.him as the second greatest bass professional
of all time.
Martin was surely the most entreating bass
angler on television. In one episode, he was
wading and pulling his boat along while fishing
in about three or four feet of water. He caught a
large bass and after he removed the lure, 'the
bass flopped loose. Roland flailed around with
both his rod and fish up in his arms. -
The bass finally squirmed free and Roland
floundered in the lily pads in a desperate attempt
to hang on to the monster.
He got thoroughly soaked and the bass swam
free.
Being able to duplicate Martin's finesse as a
bass angler is the desire of all who toss a plug or
drag a worm through a weedbed. Martin's fish-
ing show is still on TV and you can find him on
OLN and still saying, "Son, that's what it's all
about."
