Iraq, when Roman stepped on an impro-
vised explosive device. '
The IED knocked the Sebring Marine
unconscious and Thomas is credited
with rendering the first aid that would
save Roman's life, allowing him to
return to his family's Sun 'N Lake home
Feb. 17.
"He's starting to look like the old
Martin who left home for the Marines,"
Jesus Roman, Martin's dad, said, as he
watched the Marines talk Thomas

Roman has trouble identify\ ing rela-
tives (he didn't recognize his siblings
when he first came to) and often can't
recall the previous day.
"I dream about some of this stuff,"
Roman said of the explosion. "I need to
figure out \w hat is real."
Thomas and Roman had several,
phone conversations before their
reunion.


S"Eer) time he calls me, I want to
know exactly what happened," Roman
said, explaining that each discussion
brings new.insight. "I don't remember
anything after the explosion, just before
it."
Thomas and his cousin Cpl. James

returned to Camp LeJune, on Feb. 12

With Thomas' parents and his girl-
friend, the Marines visited Roman at his
home. where an anxious mother waited
to meet the man who saved her son's
life.
SHe's our guardian angel," she said of
Thomas. "I just wanted to hug him."
Thomas said his command dropped
the ball on keeping up with Roman's
recovery. He had to rely on his mother,
Vickie Thomas. to relay updates from
Carmen Roman.
"We got bloed up together the first
time over there." Thomas said, referring
to their first tour in Iraq when he,
Roman, and others faced incoming mor-
tar rounds. "I got a scratch on my tail but

SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 24/NUMBER 40


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Lake Placid is
looking at having a large devel-
opment west of Lake Placid.
On Sunset Point, on the east-
ern shore of Lake June, Silver
Companies plans to build
1,100-1,200 homes.
"The road structure can't
handle the volume of develop-
ment," Don Hanna, planner in
the county's Development
Services department, told the
Long-range Traffic Committee
last week.
Hanna and Development-
Services Director Jim Polatty
have been working with the


Lake Placid Growth
Management Committee to
ensure roads are upgraded or
planned to handle this increased
flow. J
Current residents are con-
cerned new high-volume devel-
opment could choke existing
thoroughfares and upset the
"small town" atmosphere they
now enjoy.
So far, Hanna has come up
with a grid of collector roads
for the west ofthe downtown.
area, with some roads extended
to funnel traffic to U.S. 27
To make it work best, Hanna
said the town will probably
need a sector plan, similar to the


one de\ ised for the north side of
.Sebring. The Silver Companies'
proposed 900 single family
homes and approximately. 300
dwellings for an acute senior
community, along with other
proposed developments, could
swell the Lake Placid area with
30,000 new residents, Hanna
said, making it a small city.
Any roads in the town
already on the long-range trans-
portation needs map would
move forward in priority. For
example, Pendarvis Road,
recently renamed Heartland
Boulevard, already slated for
improvement, could reach
Tangerine Boulevard at Lake


June Park. on the northeast cor-
ner of the development.
Traffic also could impact
Interlake Boulevard to the south
and even Catfish Creek Road, if
traffic backs up going around
Devane Circle.
However, county traffic plan-
ners hat e warned for some time
that even without new develop-
ments on Lake June, the down-
town area needs better traffic'
flow.
Suggestions of four lanes for
some feeder roads have been
rebuffed because it uould


change the
town.


Riding for critters


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring resident Wayne Daffron takes a moment Saturday afternoon to visit with some of the animals at the
Humane Society of Highlands County in Sebring. Daffron and his wife Deb were participating in the seventh annual

also were collected for the society. Both Albertson's and Wal-Mart donated dog and cat food for the event.

SEBRING Well known
for her many achievements -
perhaps most for her role as
Kathy Anderson (Kitten) of the
television series "Father Knows
Best" Lauren Chapin is now,
among other things, a motiva
tional speaker.
Members of the Red Hat
Society maxed out the confer-
ence room at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center on
Friday to hear her speak.
Although she enjoyed much
acclaim as an actress starring
in many television and radio
programs, as well as movies
and commercials she has not
had the great life many would
assume. Now she shares the
struggles she has endured,
along with a message of hope
and forgiveness.
The crowd sat captivated as
Chapin began, telling them of
her, difficulty in having chil-
dren. "I was pregnant seven
times," she said, "and lost all
seven of them." Angry with
God for refusing to grant her
the children she wanted "more
than anything else," her faith
wavered.
At 27, however, she gave
birth to a baby boy. "I named
him Matthew," she said, "which
means 'gift from God."'
Five years later, she gave
birth to her daughter. "I named
her Sunmmer," she said, telling
them, "I'm not sure what that
means; except 'hot.' "The audi-
ence laughed.
Chapin said that children are
a blessing from God and that
hers served as a wonderful role
model for her.
"They did the normal things
and I did everything with
them," she' said. "I was the only
mom that would be out watch-
ing a soccer game in a down-
pour when no one else would
come out because of the rain."
She was so involved with her
children that she even became a
teacher, teaching special educa-
tion students at their high
school.
Currently spreading the mes-
sage of salvation, Ch.ipin
remembers years during which
she wasn't leading a life she
was proud of.
"When Matthew was little
was a difficult time for me," she
said. "1 had viral encephalitis

and nearly died."
Matthew, worried about his
mother and with the faith of a
child, prayed for her healing.
"God hears the prayers of lit-
tle children," Chapin said. "I
had gone from .110 pounds
down to 74; but God answered
his prayers and I got better."
Later that same year, Chapin
was back in the hospital with
internal bleeding.. Having to
have her bowel and colon
stripped, she said of the humili-
ating experience, "There's
nothing like waking up lying on
your chest on a bed with your
exposed butt up in the air and a
doctor walking in asking, 'So,
how are we doing?' I wanted to
say, 'Why don't you come and
ask the other end?'" she said.

"I told him that I thought too
many hypocrites went to church
and explained that I had not
exactly been' the best person in
the past, telling him that God
probably.didn't want me there
anyway," she said.
. 'Mommy, God loves you
just the way you are,' Matthew
replied. I got saved that day,"
she said. "God changed me."
Accepting salvation didn't
mean she wouldn't have prob-
lems anymore. Chapin said that
since then she has lost her sis-
ter-in-law to cancer a death
.she said was very hard for her to
watch.
"She died with such dignity
though," she said. "And she
held on until the birth of her
twin grandchildren."

"I am now a heart disease
asurvivor,":she said, encouraging
the ladies to take care of them-
selves and, when necessary, uti-


lize medical facilities.
In spite of her hard times,
Chapin said, "I praise God
because of all I've been
through; it allows me to share
with others what I've learned.
We have to be healthy, not only
physically, but spiritually and
emotionally, too."
Chapin believes that much of
her physical and emotional
problems were self-induced.
"I was full of unforgiveness
and bitterness," she said. "My
mother was an alcoholic and
she never wanted me never
put her arms around me or
showed me any affection."
Explaining that she wanted her
mother's love, she said that she
also treated her mother terribly,
retaliating because of the rejec-
., uou.
A..l..tt ,.,iajll, Chi.pin. ad
deep emotional baggage
because of her father. "He
molested me between the ages
of 3 and 5, and 14 and 16," she
said.
A Christian friend of hers


told her that she had to forgive
others not only for them, but
for herself. "God forgives us
and even forgets about it," she
said. "How many of us. can? I
had to learn to give the gift of
forgiveness he gave to me."
Chapin's mother committed
suicide before she had this rev-
elation; but she didn't let that
keep her from doing what she
needed to do. "I went to her
grave and said, 'Mommy, I for-
give you and I ask'you to for-
give me,'" she said. "I know I
treated you badly and I am
sorry for that.' A 5,000-pound
weight fell from my shoulders."
Later, Chapin went to her
father who was still living.
"Whether a person is alive or
not, we still can forgive them,"
she. said. After telling her dad
that she didn't know why he did
the things he did to her, she
said, "but I forgive you for what
you did and want you to go to
heaven with me." He wasn't
receptive to her message of sal-
vation, .telling her, "There is no
God and no heaven." .
She later tried to: reach him
again, sending him 17 page
letter begging him to >accept
God's salvation but to no
avail. "Some \ears later I got a
call ,a\ inc that he was dying,"
Chapin said. "1 tried again and
he said, 'Never.' I warned him
then that he may find out soon
that there was a God."
Chapin stressed to the ladies
that where ever they are in their
walk of life, they need to be
whole physically, emotional-
ly and spiritually: "We. can
choose to serve the enemy who
brings death, or the one who
wants to bring life," she said.
She instructed the women to
look inside themselves for areas
that need to be changed. "We
are the captains of our own des-
tinies," she said. "The past
doesn't have to guide or control
us it can be a stepping stone
to the future."
Although Chapin said, "I
may not be a star anymore," she
told the .audience, "In God's
3 e's'e re all stars."
In closing, Chapin told them,
"The eses-are-the \ indo_ to the
soul. Eter) one of )ou can
reach, so many people let
them look into your eyes and
see the Lord."

Officers learn about Alzheimer's


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING You take a
walk or drive along a straight,
easy path, but end up in a
strange place.
A uniformed stranger wear-
ing a gun walks up, asking
questions. You try to answer,
but don't understand. You're
scared.
Henry Cancel, program spe-
cialist with the Alzheimer's
Association for the Safe Return
program and former detective
from New York, tells law
enforcement that's a typical
Alzheimer's patient's perspec-
tive of wandering off and being
approached by an officer.
In a series of recent seminars,
he's updated local law enforce-
ment on how to recognize
Alzheimer's patients and deal
with them.

Signs
The disease tends to affect
people over age 65, but is not
considered a normal part of
aging. Only a doctor can cor-
rectly diagnose it.
An irreversible brain disease,
it slowly destroys memory,
judgment, and the ability to
learn, reason, communicate, or,
do daily tasks.
As the disease progresses,
personality and behavior may
change to anxiety, suspicion or
agitation, including delusions
or hallucinations.


Incident training
Police may meet an
Alzheimer's patient 'when
responding to any number of
incidents. The Alzheimer's
Association gives various sug-
gestions on how to deal with
each case.
M Wandering. Once an offi-
cer finds an Alzheimer's patient
who has wandered away,
Cancel suggests officer calmly
introduce themselves, assure
the person they are there to
help. .
The officer often checks
missing person's reports and
checks the person for a Safe
Return bracelet and for injury
or exposure.
They will then notify the
caregiver, contact adult protec-
tive services and contact the
local Alzheimer's Association
chapter.
Unsafe driving. Cancel
said Alzheimer's patients* may
appear to be driving under the
influence and may fail sobriety
tests because they can't follow
instructions. They also may
have accidents and leave
because they .forgot it hap-
pened.
Officers are urged to check
for a Safe Return bracelet, noti-
fy the caregiver and suggest to
the family that they contact
their physician and either cur-
tail or remove the person's driv-
Sing privileges. '


Indecent exposure. With
some people, the disease results
in inappropriate behavior:
Taking off clothes in public or
sexual aggression. Officers are
cautioned not to reprimand or
lecture the person but contact
the caregiver, and use a distrac-
tion, such as buying the person
a cup of coffee, to control the
person's behavior.
1 False report. People with
Alzheimer's may report an
"intruder" who turns out to be a
family member, misplace valu-
ables and accuse others, or for-
get where they parked their car
and report is stolen.
'Victimization.
Alzheimer's patients are prey to
con artists, robbers, or muggers,
and may fall victim to evic-
tions, repossessions or discon-
tinued utilities because of
missed (forgot) payments.
Abuse/neglect. Aggressive
patients sometimes abuse their
caregivers,0 while distraught
caregivers sometimes abuse or
neglect the patients.
Homicide/suicide.
Caregivers under too much'
stress from caring for their, dis-
eased loved one sometimes
have resorted to suicide and/or
murder. Police often offer care-
givers information about sup-
port services and the local
Alzheimer's Association chap-
ter.

Good training key to finding


Alzheimer's patients quickly


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In Highlands,
County, the Alzheimer's
Association counts 16,000 peo-
ple with the disease.
Henry Cancel, program spe-
cialist with the Alzheimer's
Association for the Safe Return
program and former detective
from New York, adds 20 per-
cent for seasonal residents and
those not who aren't diagnosed.
Most local agencies are
accustomed to searching for
Alzheimer's patients.
Highlands County has one of
the oldest populations in the
state and nation.
Cancel has given seminars to
local agencies in an effort to
close any gaps, reemphasize
training that can help find wan-
derers quickly and ask officers
to be proactive.
Safe Return, he said, keeps
Alzheimer's patients registered
in a nationwide database to help
decrease search and rescue
time.

Disease
At some time, each person
will either know, be related to,
or become an Alzheimer's
patient, Cancel said. The irre-
versible brain disease slowly
destroys memory, judgment,
and the ability to learn, reason,
communicate, or do daily tasks.
It is not a part of normal
aging, although symptoms first
appear after age 60-65 in most
patients. Some patients have
been younger, Cancel said.
As the disease progresses,
personality and behavior may
change to anxiety, suspicion or
agitation, including delusions
or hallucinations.

Wanderers
He said 60 percent of
Alzheimer's patients wander
off on foot,, bicycle or in a car.
Of those, 46 percent will suffer
major injury or death if not
found in 24 hours.
Safe Return provides wan-
dering Alzheimer's patients
with identity bracelets, even
providing financial aid for peo-
ple who can't afford it, Cancel
said.

Searching
The first step to a search,
Cancel said, is to find out how
long a person has been missing.
Families often look 30-45 min-
' utes before calling police.
Someone on foot could be a
couple of miles away by then.
Someone driving could be in
another city or state.
Officers must establish the
point of exit either a door or
direction and whether the
wanderer is left- or right-hand-
ed. About 88 percent will head


in the direction of their domi-
nant hand, Cancel said, then
follow an established straight
path, such as a fence line, side-
walk, street, airport runway or a
canal.
They may head toward water,
because it's peaceful, Cancel
said. Some stop at the edge;
others don't. '
After two hours Alzheimer's
patients don't know where they
are and start to get afraid,
Cancel said, so they hide and


won't answer. That's why law
enforcement needs tracking
dogs, he said.

Keeping track
In addition to bracelets, fam-
ilies and caregivers also can let
local law enforcement, know
that they look after an
Alzheimer's patient.
In turn, police can help look
out for them, as well as help
direct those caregivers to help-
ful resources.

County working on road


costs, service levels, corridors


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County's long-range transporta-
tion plan may go to a workshop
with the county commission on
April 11.
However, it still needs work.
County planners and long-
range transportation committee
members said Wednesday they
must revise road costs and
acceptable, traffic volumes.
Those, in turn, will affect, which
roads .get built first and what
right of way to preserve with a
proposed transportation corri-
dor management ordinance.
Revisions could postpone the
workshop later than April 11,
county planner Don Hanna
said.
Costs
Commissioner Barbara
Site arnt ant planners to
revise' old cost estimates with
new information. .
The capital improvement
plan presented to the county
commission in December 2005
had an $8 million estimate for a
portion of the Sebring Parkway
that would actually run $23 mil-
lion, she said.
Other total project costs were
listed for less than just the cost
of land. '
County Administrator Carl
Cool said Tindale-Oliver, the
county's new impact fee con-
sulting firm, saw those con-
struction and right of way cost
discrepancies, and suggested
the county have a cost-per-mile
study for the Sebring Parkway
done by the,end of March.
Some figures may get inflat-
ed as much as 25-40 percent,
Cool said.
That way, Tindale-Oliver can
have updated figures by May
and June, in time for late-June
public hearings on impact fees.
Level of service
The state of Florida requires
the county to adopt levels of
service how many vehicle
trips a road can handle per day
as part of the comprehensive
plan, Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said.
In 1991 the county picked a
standard: Level C 7,000 trips
.per day for a county two-lane
road.
Hammock Road, however,
has more trips than this and still
functions. Polatty said either
the standard is wrong or the
county needs to adopt the state
standards, setting Level C at
13,100 trips.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said the number of traffic
signals, turn lanes, or drive-
ways per mile also affects the
level of service.
To clarify matters, the com-
mittee decided to define roads
in the transportation plan as the
volume divided by capacity to
get a percentage of how much
it's being used.
For example, 3,500 cars on a
7,000-car road is 50 percent
funll.
Road map
Levels of service may define
which roads get attention first,
but not necessarily.
Committee Chairman Curtis
DeYoung said it's part of a
"broad-brush planning tool."
Right of way costs and other
issues may delay some projects


as much as five to seven years,
while lessor priority roads with
lower costs might get moved
up.
Corridor ordinance
By Jan 2008, the county will
have committed to consider
adopting a transportation corri-
dor preservation ordinance.
The ordinance would provide
ways for the county to either
reserve right of way on vacant
land with an easement, purchas-
ing land from landowners or


condemn it.
Right now, the county's ordi-
natice is in draft form, as is the
protocol providing public hear-
ings for people whose property
would be affected by the ordi-
nance. For its next task, Polatty
wants the committee to concen-
trate on completing the ordi-
nance.
' Hanna said the county is still
gathering information on other
counties' corridor ordinances as
guides.

Kissimmee River restoration


area shows dramatic results


* The first of a three-part
series.
By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
More than five years have
passed since heavy equipment
first rumbled through the
Kissimmee River valley with
the goal of restoring the river.
More than seven miles of the
channelized Kissimmee was
filled, returning the river flow
along 15 miles of the river's
historic route.
On the western side of the
Kissimmee, all of the restored
area lies within Highlands
County.
Since completion of Phase 1
in 2001, scientists have been
constantly monitoring the
changes in the river's ecosys-
tem, and have observed encour-
aging results:
The birds have returned. A
large variety of wading birds,
shorebirds and migratory
waterfowl nearly -absent from
the Kissimmee valley are living
and breeding in the reclaimed
wetland.
Popular game fish have
returned. Bass and sunfish pop-
ulations, which had dropped to
30 percent, are now up to 60
percent, close to their historical
numbers. ,
Invertebrate populations,
the small fish, shrimp and
insect larvae, have re-colonized
and once again serve as food for
larger fish and birds.
Restoring continuous flow
to the river has allowed it to
naturally flush out more than 40
years of accumulated organic
muck that covered the bottom
and consumed life-sustaining
dissolved oxygen.
The historic sandy river.
bottom and sandbars have reap-
peared.
Levels of dissolved oxy-
gen in the water have improved
dramatically. Dissolved o \ gen
is.,critical to suppoiiing life
throughout the svysem.n

exhaustive studies of the river
system before, during and after
the completion of Phase 1 of the

restoration project are summa-
rized in a new publication:
Initial Response Brochure that
is available from the South
Florida Water Management
District. Written for the lay-
man, it details all of the
responses the project scientists
have seen since construction
was completed in 2001.
Years before the first bull-
dozer appeared, scientists stud-
ied the existing conditions in
the river basin so that they
could document the results of
the restoration. District scien-
tists developed 42 specific
measures that nature must
achieve before SFWMD and its
partner, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, can declare restora-
tion a success.
"At the beginning of the proj-
ect, we precisely defined our
expectations for the results of
the restoration. We identified
specific targets with a value and
a time frame for their initial
response," Lawrence Glenn
said.
Glenn is senior supervising
eni jronmental .scientist f1r the
South Florida \W.iter
Nlanjgement Disinci. He has
been working on the
Kissimmee River Restoration
Project since he joined


SFWMD in 1996.
Glenn explained that he is
one of a group of scientists who
specialize in the different eco-
logical components of the sys-
tern.
"We each monitor our own
area of specialization. Mine is
fish populations. Different proj-
ect members monitor birds,
invertebrates, reptiles and
amphibians, and threatened and
endangered species. Others spe-
cialize. in vegetation, water
quality, sediments, and hydrol-
ogy the science dealing with
the circulation and distribution
of water."
These measures will docu-
ment the expectations that the
restoration will benefit more
than 300 species of fish and
wildlife.

River meandered approximate-
ly 103 miles from Lake

News-Sun, Sunday, February 26, 2006 7A


AREA
Continued from 6A
area that offered beautiful lakes
and streams and an abundance
of outdoor sports.
To prevent flooding, the river
was channelized into a 56-mile
canal (C-38) in the early 1960s.
The Kissimmee River was
divided into five pools by a
series of combined locks and
spillways. The water level in
each of these pools was regulat-
ed according to a schedule.
Two-thirds of the historical
floodplain was drained between
1962 and 1971.
There were serious unintend-
ed impacts from these radical
alterations. The canal, which
cut off the original oxbows,
resulted in the loss of thousands
of acres of wetlands and river-
ine habitat.
The base of the food chain
became depleted as small fish,
shrimp and invertebrates disap-
peared along with their wetland
habitat. Fisheries dwindled as
the area's once-renowned bass
fishery disappeared. Migratory
waterfowl decreased by 92 per-
cent.
Talk of restoration began
almost as soon as the channel-
ization project was finished.'
"People began to realize the
effects even before the channels
and flood control structures
were completed," Glenn said.
"The fish catches were drop-
ping, the birds were disappear-
ing, and people started lobbying
to restore what they had before.
This was a grassroots move-
ment."
Weeds, sludge and
gar fish
The natural river runs of the
Kissimmee used to snake back
and forth through the flood
plain. When these oxbows were
blocked by the channel, they
became dying remnants that
had no flow, isolated from the
moving river.
"The water was not moving
in the pools and oxbows. They
became very stagnant because
there was no oxygen in the
water," Glenn said, explaining.
that lack of flow prevents aera-
tion of water, a process which
continuously adds oxygen.
The Kissimmee River for-


merly had a white sandy bot-
tom, with sandbars around most
of the bends in the river.
"Sand moves with the flow
of the water, it shifts, settles,
shifts again," Glenn said.
"After channelization, all of the
sandbars completely disap-
peared. The river's natural
sandy bottom was covered with
muck." ,
Invasive vegetation grew
across the top of the water, then
decomposed and fell to the bot-
tom. Thick organic detritus a
sludgy waste material cov-
ered the river bottom through-
out the system. This lowered
the dissolved oxygen levels to
almost zero in some areas. The
entire ecosystem crashed.
"There was a total shift in the
fish community, from bass and
sunfish to Florida gar and mud-
fish, because the latter can
come to the top of the water to
breathe.
"That tells us right there that
the water quality is very poor,"
Glenn said.
According to Glenn, bass and
sunfish usually comprise 70
percent of the fish population in
Florida rivers. After channeliza-
tion, these species dropped
down to 30-35 percent.
With dwindling fish and
invertebrates those tiny,
spineless critters at the bottom
of the food chain the birds
rapidly departed.
"Birds are one of the most
highly visible components of
the ecosystem," Glenn said.
"We were down to one wading
bird in parts of the Kissimmee,
and that was the cattle egret,
which actually is related to
land. Our shore birds dropped
to two species, because we did
not have any sandy shores
along the river."
Of greatest importance to
people, when wetlands are
reduced or compromised, the
watershed loses its ability to fil-
ter out harmful nutrients and
other pollutants. Wild plants use
fertilizer from agricultural and
residential runoff the same way
as the plants in our yards.
Plants and grasses on the
floodplains take up nutrients
such as nitrogen and phospho-
rus before the water can flow
into our rivers and lakes,, or
seep into the aquifer. If there is
no place for runoff to spread out

and disseminate, the pollutants
they carrycan seep into shallow
and deep groundwater.
Diverting the river's natural
path resulted in the loss of the
filtering function that maintains
water quality -throughout the
entire watershed..
Back to the future
To' restore wetland habitat
values, the Kissimmee River
restoration was authorized by
the U.S. Congress in the Water
Resources Development Act of
1992. The project, led by the
Suith FDorLd. \Vater lan.ie-

Army Corps of Engineers, will
restore an estimated 40 square
miles of river and floodplain
ecosystem.

project is restoration in its truest .
sense to re-establish natural
water levels and flow and to
restore the ecological integrity
of the watershed. The restora-
tion project will result in 43
continuous miles of meandering
river channel and about 27,000
acres of wetlands. The project is
expected to benefit more than
320 fish and wildlife species.
The Kissimmee River Re-
storation Project is the largest
river restoration project in the
world. It encompasses more
than 100,000 acres of wetlands
and floodplain.
"It is the first of its type,"
Glenn said. "We have had to
figure out a lot of the methods
and choices involved. Now,
ecologists and scientists
involved in many other river
systems are using this project as
a template for their river
restoration efforts."

Benefits to people,
The one constraint on the
project was to ensure that the'
existing flood protection is
maintained To maintain this.
t.,o pools \\ill not be changed.


Pool A on the north end and
Poo1 E on the south end will
remain channelized. Pools B, C
and D all in Highlands
County have already been
restored.
Backfilling of the canal
began in. 1999. Phase 1 of the
project was completed in 2001;
and the S65B dam at the north
end of the restored section was
blown up' in 2002. The
Istokpoga Canal now empties
into the restored section, and
the completed project should
have a positive impact on the'
entire watershed.
"We expect to deliver cleaner
water to Lake Okeechobee
because the restored marsh will
filter the water ,as it passes
through. This will remove most
of the phosphorous that has
been polluting many of the,
lakes and streams," Glenn said.-
Public access and use of the
waterway and adjacent lands
are part of the restoration plan.
Boat ramps, hiking and horse
trails, and other access facilities
provide opportunities for boat-
ing and canoeing, birding,
wildlife viewing, hunting and
camping along the restored
river.' : .

Developer suggests Sunshine violated


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING City attorney
J. Michael Swaine agreed
Tuesday with developer Arthur
Marrero's attorney that, some,
city council members' appear-
ance at a recent public CRA
meeting may be perceived as a
violation of the state's Sunshine
laws.
"You can smile ma'am,"
Robert Stanz, a Bartow attorney
representing Marrero, said to
Councilwoman Margie
Rhoades. "But, when there are
people at 'a public meeting
which you have authority over
the members, I think there is a
conflict there ... I start thinking.
Sunshine
The Sunshine laws require
public meetings be noticed to
the public in advance and pro-
hibit two or more members of a
council, commission, board,
etc., from convening, to talk
business without first giving
due notice to the public.
Four members of the five-
person council attended the
Feb. 13 Community Redevel-
opment Agency meeting at
which discussion on MVrrero's '
controversial development was


tabled because of apparent con-
fusion among the commission-
ers, council president Jeff
Carlson said.
Rhoades, Carlson and
Councilman John Griffin
showed up as members of the
public while Councilwoman
Annette Daft came as the coun-
cil liaison. Daff attends most
CRA meetings, observing and
rarely commenting.
" Swaine, in addressing
Stanz's. accusation, said com-
munication could be directly to
each other or indirectly through
the conduit of addressing the
commissioners.
He said two of the four coun-
cil members who attended
allegedly oppose Marrero's
design while the other two
favor it.
"None of us were trying to
influence the board," Griffin
said.
What allegedly stumped the
CRA was whether they were, to
consider certain parameters
(such as setback and height lim-
itations) despite a development
agreement between the proper-
ty owner and the council.
"I was a little confused," said
CRA commissioner Mike


Carter, explaining he believed
the development agreement
superseded CRA guidelines. "I
still am."
Commissioner Jim
McCollum wasn't confused
about his board's duties. Rather,
he moved to table the discus-
sion because he felt Marrero
hadn't adequately addressed
other issues.and the commis-
sion hadn't gotten to the issues
in question.
"To me we're bound by
that," McCollum said of the
agreement.
After receiving unsolicited
advice from Stanz, the council
returned the matter to the CRA
directing them'to ignore the
development agreement and
make their recommendation
based on the design guidelines
they've adopted.
City council, when they
revisit the matter for final
approval, will decide whether
the Marrero property must con-
form to zoning restrictions or is
granted any variances.
"I'm not here to lecture you.
I'm here to get to the truth,"
Stanz said. "You appointed the
CRA. Let them do their job."

Stay alert

for EMS

ambulances
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In the latest
installment of emergency per-
sonnel either hit personally or
in wrecks, a Highlands County
Emergency Medical Services
ambulance got hit last Sunday
night in Avon Park.
EMS Director Rick Weigand
said it's just another example of
how important it is for drivers
to pay attention to the road
around them and to give room
for emergency vehicles.
"It's not a local problem by
any means," Weigand said.
The wreck took place at 7:18
p.m. Sunday. An ambulance
northbound on U.S. 27 had to
turn right onto Main Street
from the center lane for a med-
ical call.
An outside lane of traffic did
not yield and a car clipped the
ambulance in the passenger's
front quarter, and then bounced
off other cars.
Emergency Medical
Techriician Tom Drew and
Paramedic Mike Swafford
received minor injuries.
Weigand said his ambulance
crews drive a total' of 500,000
miles each year, about 200,000
in emergency response mode.
Once every two years, there's a
minor accident, despite a
Florida law, stating that
motorists must give way for an
ambulance or fire engine.
"Drivers obeying and yield-
inig used to be the rule,"
Weigand said Thursday. "Now,
it's the exception."
There are a lot of factors
involved besides. people just
ignoring the law or common
courtesy. Highlands County has
drivers with no long-term expe-
rience 16'years old to
elderly drivers who may have
significant loss qf hearing,
vision and reflexes.
The biggest problem, he
said, is distracted drivers.
There are always people listen-
ing to the stereo, or eating.
The most common distrac-
tion he's seen, however, is cell
phone use. It's one of the most
common reasons people are not
aware of their surroundings, he
said, and it's the easiest to stop..
He wants to think ambulance
accidents will go down, but it's
not likely. Calls have gone up
locally about. 6 percent per
year. The roads are crowded
and everyone is in a hurry, he
said.
And, he now has more crews
on the road to look out for.

geant, Jesus Roman spoke rev-
erently when discussing his
son's post-traumatic stress dis-
order.
"I try to take him everywhere
with me," the father said. "If we
leave him 'by himself for too
long he starts to think about it.
He'll cry, sometimes. I try to
help him keep his mind off of
it."


KATARA SIMMONS/Ncws-Sun
Cpl. Dave Thomas (right) looks at Lance Cpl. Martin Roman's left
shin which is still repairing itself after Roman stepped on an IED on
Dec. I in Iraq. Thomas is credited with placing the life-saving
tourniquet on Roman's leg.


Though Roman is home, he
still has up to a year of physical,
occupational and psychological
therapy.
He anticipates a medical
retirement but if deemed fit for
duty, Roman said -he doesn't
want to don the Marine uniform
only to sit at a desk.
While the- Roman family


acknowledged Thomas' role in
bringing their son and brother
to safety, they said the outpour-
ing of support from cards to
prayers -- had to play a role in
Roman's speedy recovering.
"He brought happiness to
this family," Jesus Roman said,
looking at Thomas. "You are
my hero." '

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
student, Tallulah Micah, was
honored recently for her aca-
demic achievements, leadership
skills, and community service
when she was named to the
2006 Phi Theta Kappa All-
Florida Academic Team.
The team includes 112 stu-
dents, representing 27 commu-
nity colleges and one independ-,
ent two-year college. The stu-
dents will be honored during a
reception and awards ceremony
on April 5 in Tallahassee, and
they will be recognized by the
Florida Legislature and other
state leaders at the Capitol on
April 6.
"It was really an honor to be
- named 'to the ,All-Florida
Academiic Team," said Micah,
who currently maintains a 3.66
. grade point average at SFCC.
"It validates all the time I spent
studying and learning. I'm glad
and honored to represent
SFCC."
Micah is' the president of the
Tau Epsilon chapter of Phi
Theta Kappa and was named
Outstanding Student in oral
communications and in abnor-
mal psychology at SFCC "for
2004-05. She graduates from
SFCC in May at age 41 with a
double major in psychology
and criminology and plans to
work toward a Ph.D. in psy-
chology. Her ultimate goal is to
study serial killers.
Without a college education,
Micah built two successful
careers: One in the music indus-
try and one working on cam-
paigns for Vice President Al
Gore. "In August 2000, I suf-
fered two strokes and had to
reexamine my life," she said.
"It was then that I decided to do
something about the only regret
I had, which was never attend-
ing college."
Micali's early years were
troubled. She was a victim of
child abuse, incest and neglect.
She went through -the foster
care system, and then was
returned to her parents' home.
"I graduated from high
school, but there was no way
that I could go to college," she
said. "At that point, I was in so
much turmoil. I had gone to 13
different schools in 12 years,
and I was provided no emotion-
al support by the system. It was
unlike it is now."
Micah considers herself to be
self-taught. "I was always
inquisitive," she said. "If I
wanted to know about some-
thing, I would just get a book to
learn about it. The last time I
counted, I had 4,329 books on
everything from African-
American history to Europe in
the Middle Ages to Russian pol-
itics."
She eventually became an
emancipated minor. To break
with her past, the young
woman, who was born Cindy
Leigh Smith, eventually
changed her name. "That name
is simply torture for someone
who thinks they are unique,"
she said. Micah named herself
for the actress Tallulah
Bankhead. "She was over the


top and flamboyant, but inside
she was very insecure. I related
to that." Her last name came
from a favorite verse in the
Bible, Micah 6:8: All God
requires of you is to love jus-
tice, do mercy, and walk,
humbly with your God. "I liked
the dichotomy between the two
names," she said.
Micah has used her own
experience to make life better
for others. Currently, she serves
as a youth care worker at the
Children's Home Society,
which provides a safe haven for
20 children whom the court has
deemed abused or neglected.
She volunteers in the admis-
sions department of the emer-

for the Department of Juvenile
Justice.
Her advice to prospective
students? "Everybody is
unique," she said. "What
worked for me may not work
for someone else. Listen to
yourself. You'll know what's
right. Although college was
something I really wanted, it
wasn't right until I was 38 years
old. Every minute I'm in school
is beautiful. If you can't go
right away, don't give up. Wait
for the right- time. And' don't
-feel you have to. fit into what
someone else says."

Laser Hair Removal Facts
Palomar IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) works by emitting light into the hair folli-
cle which then absorbs the light through the pigment of the hair and converts
it to heat. The heat then destroys the cells responsible for growing new hair
and in turn you get permanent hair reduction.
Hair grows in cycles and goes through several stages. The anagen or active
stage of hair growth is the only stage that a hair follicle can be treated to per-
manently destroy its ability to produce new hair. At any given time 10% of a
person's hair is in the active stage therefore simple mathematics tells us that
in order to hit all the hair in an active stage of hair growth you will need a min-
imum of ten treatments for the maximum effect. This is true of all laser hair
removal machines on the market. That's why we here at the She Spa
International, Inc. only offer 12 month packages. You will be assured of the
maximum hair reduction and know the full cost on the initial visit.
Understanding hair growth will allow clients to make an educated decision
,,1 about hair removal.
The technology used by the Palomar IPL which has been rated in medical
journals as one of the top three most effective lasers for hair removal can be
used on all skin types. You don't have to let your hair grow out before your
treatments so you can remain hair free all the time. An initial free consultation
is necessary.
Photofacials
The Palomar IPL technology is also used to improve and rejuvenate the skin.
The top layer of skin is unharmed by this treatment therefore there is minimal
redness which means no down time. Using the IPL we can dramatically
improve the look of sun-damaged skin, brown spots, pigmented lesions, and
even out the skin tone. These treatments are also appropriate for clients with
persistent redness and flushing of Rosacea and other skin conditions. The
end result of PhotoFacial treatments is healthier and younger appearing skin.
Additionally, these treatments can be used in conjunction with chemical peels
or microdermabrasion to enhance the results of these procedures.

Regatta July 7 promises to be big event


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
June 23, 1927.

The First Annual Big
Jackson Regatta, to be given on
Lake Jackson Thursday, July 7,
under the auspices of the

mit number is 20012778.000.

Any person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the District's action regarding this
permit may request an administrative hearing
in accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter
28-106, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.),
of the Uniform Rules of Procedure. A request
for hearing must (1) explain how the substan-
tial interests of each person requesting the
hearing will be affected by the District's ac-
tion, or final action; (2) state all material facts
disputed by each person requestingthe hear-
ing or state that there are no disputed facts;

tice (or within 14 days for an Environmental

merged Lands). Failure to file a request for
hearing within this time period shall constitute
a waiver of any right such person may have to
request a hearing under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S.
Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the District's fi-
nal action may be different from the position
taken by it in this-notice of final agency action.

fected by any such final decision of the Dis-
trict on the application have the right of peti-
tion to become a party to the proceeding, in

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Beyond the

cell phone
The phone rang.
Hopefully my son would be
there. Instead, I reached his
voice mail where I could
leave a message. But, then,
he said, "If you really need
to reach me, call me on my
cell phone," and gave his'
number.
The cell phone made him
more accessible, but didn't
guarantee we'd connect
immediately. However, it
was nice to have another
option.
My husband, Ken, and I
basically use our cell phones
to stay in touch with each
other as the need may arise
throughout the day. When
we travel, we give out the
number in case anyone has
to reach us. For us it's a
good tool in case of emer-
gencies not as a second
phone number.
Recently, I was reminded
that God has a cell phone
number, too. You might find
that hard to believe. But,
check this out. God's num-
ber is Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV);
"Call to me and I will
answer you and tell you
great arid unsearchable
things you do not know."
And we need never fear
we'll get his voice mail.
He's always there, ready
and waiting for our call. Not
only that, but he'll answer
our deepest need and fill our
ears and minds with the
treasure of his wisdom.
When I shared this tongue
and cheek thought with my
husband, we both laughed.
But, he \.ja. quick to point
out that God goes one better
than that.. .. .... ..
"-Before t[ie call I will
answer; while ihe) are still
speaking I will hear."
(Isaiah 65: 24, NIV)
Our shared laughter bub-
bled up from the joy that
comes from knowing the
One who longs to hear from
us. How true. He knows our
thoughts even before we
utter them and is already on
his way with an answer.
Have you ever experi-
enced that kind of commu-
nication with God the
Father? I can recall near
misses of automobile acci-
dents when even before I
could formulate "Jesus" on
my tongue, his protective
hand had intervened.
Or, he may deliver an
answer through his Word,
while we are in prayer,
through other believers or
within a set of circum-
stances. That's why we can
live in confidence that his
ears are .always opened to
our call.
But, should our need be
so great that the lump in our
throats blocks utterance or
our eyes are blinded by tears
he is still accessible even
if for a time we can't "dial"
his number. Because, he
answers before we call and
hears even as the thoughts
are being formulated into
words.
Our God goes far beyond
the technology of our day
always has; always will.
Selah.

Horse came gio aung girk riding experfi.


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
BUSHNELL
f you're a "horse happy" girl
between the ages of 9-13; want to
learn more about horses while
developing your skills; and enjoy
daily trail rides, head for Cypress
House Ranch Horse Camp. i
Experience the perfect place to have
a weeklong first sleep away experience
or an opportunity for a new adventure.
Only three hours away, parents can
relax knowing the girls are settled with-
in a closely supervised, family-like
atmosphere. The comfortable surround-
ings resemble an old-fashioned week at
grandma's farm.
And that's no exaggeration.
"I developed 'summers with
Grammy' for my four granddaughters
from age 3 on during the '80s and
'90s," said Jan Fessler, owner of
Cypress House Ranch Bed & Breakfast
for 14 years and director of the camp.
Fessler has 29 years teaching experi-
ence in various elementary grades. She
also spent 20 years (1962-1981) teach-
ing camp counseling skills to high
school girls in northern Girl Scout resi-
dent camps in Richmond, Va.; -
'Cincinnati, Ohio; and Buffalo, N.Y.
"I wanted to give my two daughters
summers at well structured camps dur-'
ing the hot Florida summers," Fessler.
said.
Girls will love the variety of horses
at Cypress House Ranch Horse Camp.

assistants come alongside Jan Fessler
during sessions at Cypress House
Horse Camp.
RoseNlarie Martin is the riding
instructor for camp. She operated

Renee hies is the assistant instruc-
tor and brings many years of experi-
ence dealing with students. She spe-.
cializes in the English style of riding.
She has been a 4-H regional hunter
jumper winner for four years. She
learned instruction skills wkith her
grandmother's Timber Lane Stables
hunter jumper program.
Cyndi Tumbull. Martin's grand-
daughter, is the barn and horse man-
ager at CNpress House Ranch. She
leads the daily evening trail rides in
the nearby Withlacoochee State
Forest.


Young girls (above) learn various riding
skills at the Cypress House Ranch Horse
Camp. They also learn the importance of
maintaining the stalls (right).

The swimming pool on the premises
invites them to swim and splash for a
perfect cool down before enjoying
some quiet time; including video
mov ies during the hot mid-day hours.
They'll feast on three nourishing meals
served buffet style in the diriing room
and three enjoyable snacks included
each day. Meals are approved by a reg-
istered dietitian who specializes in
nutritious foods popular with today's
kids.
Besides these on-site activities, each
week will include a field trip to a near-
by natural water activity; such as a
canoe trip through a wilderness area of
the Weekee Wachee River.
Horses have been the main attraction
at Cypress House for 10 years hav-
ing started with a small herd of five
horses to their current 18. They are of
various breeds, ages and levels.
"We provide an exceptional amount
of riding and lesson time for each of the
six girls enrolled weekly," Fessler said.
"The horses are all people friendly,
although at times they fuss among
themselves."
Shortly after arrival, one of the riding
instructors observes each girls riding
level. With so many horses to choose
from, the instructors hand-pick the les-
son horse and trail horse that is best
suited to the girl's needs. ,

with a hearty breakfast. Then it's out to
the stable to learn the responsibilities
involved in maintaining the best care of
their horses.
"Each day the girls have hands-on
activities with their own horses,"
Fessler.said.
They learn to ride and improve their
skills with daily lessons in English style
individualized to their needs; while
afternoon trail rides are Western saddle.
The main meal of the day is served at
1 p.m. after a cool-off swim following
the morning lesson. The time is well
planned to allow for a late afternoon
trail ride each day at the

horses are returned
to their stalls and
taken care of by
the girls, a light
evening meal is
served.
As nighttime
envelopes the
ranch, the girls
retire to their bed-

house two girls
close in age to a

country furniture in


each room includes
two beds and chests of drawers and
welcoming old fashioned quilts.
On the last day of camp to close
out a spectacular week the girls
show their parents what they have
learned. The show exhibits their riding
skills and demonstrates some of the fun
they have experienced throughout the
week. Each girl is given a CD of photos
from the week at Cypress House Horse

Gilbert and Sullivan opera comes to Avon Park


Popular 'H.M.S.
Pinafore' debuts
Thursday

AVON PARK The South
Florida Community College's
Artist Series presents Gilbert
and Sullivan's much-loved
comic opera, "H.M.S.
Pinafore," at ,7:30 p.m.
Thursday at the SFCC auditori-
um, Highlands Campus.
This fourth collaboration
between Gilbert and Sullivan
was their first blockbuster hit.
The opera opened in 1878, ran
for 571 performances, and
became a huge fad in England,
as well as in America. "H.M.S.
Pinafore" is among the most
popular Gilbert and Sullivan
operas, perhaps because of its
infectious tunes, and generally
well-constructed libretto. The

opera's gentle satire reprises
and builds upon one theme:

Actors perform in rendition of Gilbert and Sullivan's first major hit.


ferent social classes.
The gentlemanly captain of
the Pinafore, who claims that he
would never swear at his crew,
does not know that his daughter
has fallen in love with a com-
mon sailor serving, on her
father's ship. Meanwhile, the
captain has arranged for her to
marry the First Lord of the
Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter.
Sir Joseph himself has risen
from humble beginnings to gain
his office by political acumen,
despite never having gone to
sea. And the captain himself
fancies a poor bumboat woman.
A foiled elopement brings
everything out in the open. Will
the classes remain separated?


Will love prevail?
"Lovers of Gilbert and
Sullivan will be delighted with
this production, presented in
true opera fashion and blessed
with remarkable voices," stated
the Worcester Evening News in
a review of the performance.
Beautifully and imaginative-
ly staged, "H.M.S. Pinafore" is
co-sponsored by Highlands
Independent Bank and by
Highlands Today. Tickets are
available for this Artist Series
performance through the SFCC
Box Office, weekdays, from
11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at ext.
7178, at 453-6661, 465-5300,
773-2252, 494-7500 or directly
at 784-7178.

Davidson ,first appeared at
the SFCC Auditorium two

Davidson's first passion. In,
addition to recording 12 solo
albums in both pop and country

banjo and sings in English,
French, and Spanish. A peren-
nial nightclub and concert
favorite, he has starred in many
national tours and stock pro-
duction.
After 32 years, Davidson
returned to Broadway in 1996

Hammerstein musical "State
Fair." He has made sporadic
appearances in films including
the disaster epic "The
Concorde: Airport,79" and
"Edward Scissorhands" in
1990.

Read Me Week begins at Sebring Public Library


Read Me Week begins
Monday, and in honor of such a
special week, I thought there
might possibly-be a few titles
among the 352,000 items
owned by the cooperative
libraries that you haven't read.
New titles arrive almost daily
to be processed and made shelf-
ready, so these titles may, until
now, be unknown to you:
"Hershey: Milton S. Hershey's
Extraordinary Life of Wealth,
Empire, and Utopian Dreams;"
"The Worst Hard Time: The
Untold Story of Those Who
Survived the Great American
Dust Bowl;" "The War That
Made America: A Short History
of the French and Indian War"
or, "All In: The (Almost)
Entirely True Story of the
World Series of Poker."
Books are sometimes recreat-
ed in movies, and stage per-


formances can also produce
books. Such is the case with the
international circus-like
"Cirque du Soleil." You'll hold
your breath when watching the
videos "Alegria, Cirque du
Soleil: We Reinvent the
Circus;" "Saltimbanco" (per-
formances and acts of this novel
circus which emphasizes acro-
batics); "Quidam" (recorded
live in Amsterdam with music
and various "magical" images
and "Dralion" (a fusion of
ancient Chinese circus- tradi-
tions with the Cirque's own per-
formance artistry).
DVDs also showcase the var-
ious groups that tour under the
name of "Cirque du Soleil";
"Journey of Man" (follows the
odyssey of the stages of human
development); "Cirque
Reinvente" (their 1987 tour);
and "Nouvelle 'Experience"


(2001 performances
with acrobatics, pan-
tomime, music, and !
dancing).
Speaking of music,
we also have two
CDs to check out -
"Varekai" (recorded
in London, Toronto
and Montreal the
summer of 2002), and LIBRAI
one song, "Let Me
Fall," from Cirque du Ca
Soleil, recorded on Hes
the CD, Josh Groban.
So, if performanc-
es and tours lead to CDs, videos
and DVDs, then they also can
lead to books, and we have one
by Mark Schreiber, "Dreams of
the Solo Trapeze: Offstage with
the Cirque du Soleil.'"
Schreiber's book is a biogra-
phy, of a girl who ran away from
Siberia at 14 years old to

the lives of hundreds

LINES raised clown, even an
Olympic gymnast.

ing about the private
world of those eccentrically

performers.
Nancy Drew fans will really
enjoy "Girl Sleuth: Nancy
Drew and the Women Who
Created Her." Last year marked
75 years since its creator,
Edward Stratemeyer, intro-


duced the Nancy Drew charac-
ter. Dying shortly after his cre-
ation debuted, Stratemeyer's
daughters then carried on, head-
ing his Stratemeyer Syndicate
that employed a number of
ghost writers.
The first publisher was
Grossett and Dunlap, who
helped make the series very
popular. Simon and Schuster
took over as publishers in 1979,
with volume 57, "The Triple
Hoax."
Mildred A. Wirt Benson was
honored for being the original
Carolyn Keene in 1993 at the
first ever Nancy Drew
Conference at the University of
Iowa.
There have been movies, tel-
evision series, a computer inter-
active game in 1998, and even a
line of Nancy Drew loungewear
and accessories put out by


Gumshoe Girls. Your libraries
don't have all 175 volumes, but
we do have most of them,
including the first Nancy Drew
title, "The Secret of the Old
Clock," and most of The Nancy
Drew and The Hardy Boys
Super Mysteries.
In the year 2005, Nancy
Drew Graphic Novels debuted,
as did the newest series, "Nancy
Drew: Girl Detective Super
Mystery."

Starting a vegetable garden with seeds rather than plants.


For each vegetable you plan
to grow in your garden, you will
have to decide whether to start
it from seed, or from plant
parts.
The main advantage in start-
ing directly from seeds is that
you have a wider selection of
varieties and sources from
which to choose. Furthermore,
not all vegetables do well when
transplanted and must be grown
from seeds sown directly in the
garden row.
Good seeds may mean the
difference between success and
failure in your garden.. Buy
good seeds from a reliable deal-
er.
Plant varieties of vegetables
which have been tested and
found )to be adapted to your
area. Vegetables resistant to
pest and tolerant of adverse
weather conditions and are eas-
ier to grow successfully than
those that are not.
Most seeds are treated with
chemicals to reduce injury and
decay caused by insects and
diseases. These chemicals are
poisonous and should be han-
dled with care. Such treated
seeds are not to be eaten under
any circumstances. Keep them


out of the reach of
children.
When vegetable
seeds are placed in the
ground, the soil con-
tains water and plant
food for the small
plants to use and grow
larger.
But seeds can be
planted so deep the
young plants can not
, reach the top of the
ground. Or they can
be planted too shallow
and may be washed
away with the first
rain, or exposed for

. The& following directions can
help successfully start plants
from seeds:
When sowing small seeds,
cut or tear off a comer of the
packet and scatter seed in a fur-
row while tapping gently with
index finger.
Sow small seeds 1/4 inch
deep. Medium seeds, such as
cucumber, about 3/4 inch deep.
N Small seeds like .carrots

open a deeper planting
furrow with a hoe.
Beans and corn can be
planted 1 to 2 inches
deep.
Since larger


seeds make stronger young
plants, they can be planted
deeper than the smaller seed.
The young plants from larger
seed can grow farther to reach
the soil surface.
After the seed is dropped
or placed in the furrow, use a
hoe, rake or your hands to cover
the seed.
Some seeds will fail to grow
for the following reasons:
The seed may be weak.
Germination means the ability
to sprout; however, vigor is also
important. It refers to the
strength of that sprouting 'and


the ability of the seedling to
grow stronger.
Conditions for spouting
may not be ideal. Seeds need
aeration, moisture, and the right
temperature.
Rot, decay, insects, birds,
and animals sometimes destroy
seeds.
Some seeds have hard seed
coats, or have other physiologi-
cal needs, such as dormancy
breakage.
Store left-over seeds in the
original packets, and place in a
cool, dry place. A tightly sealed
jar placed in the refrigerator at
50 degrees works well.

Davis named Southern Union Educator of the Year


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK
C ordon Davis, who
-Yteaches science and
' J physical education at
Walker Memorial Academy,
didn't start out to be a teacher.
For years, he worked far
from a classroom, developing
dual careers as house painter
and lithographer.
But he also worked with
children in his free time. And it
was the parents of those chil-
dren, who kept insisting he
belonged in a classroom, that
made him reappraise his life
and choose a new direction.
That was 26 years ago.
Today he is not only a teacher,
but a teacher people admire
and respect.
In fact, he has just been
selected as the Southern Union
Educator of the Year. That
means he was chosen as the


outstanding Seventh-day
Adventist teacher from the
states of Florida, Alabama,
Georgia, Kentucky,
Mississippi, North and South
Carolina, and Tennessee.
Academy Principal William
Farmer said, "(His) classroom
is an adventure waiting to hap-
pen. He provides a safe, com-
fortable and happy atmosphere
that allows (students) to learn
and explore. He is not afraid to
ask questions that he may not
know the answer to, and he's
never reluctant to try some-
thing new."
Davis said, "When I'm with
the kids it's awesome. I could-
n't think of doing anything
else. I'm definitely happiest
when I'm with them."
. His classroom is orderly, but
stuffed with material. In addi-
tion to student displays, and
the usual row of computers,
there are stacks of global posi-


tioning devices and all kinds of
models, an eye, and the solar
system, for example.
He has a sign on a filing
cabinet with a quote from the
National Science Education
Standards that says :-"Learning
science is something students
do, not something that is done
to them."
That quote serves as Davis'
foundation. His students do as
much as they can.
That includes planting and
maintaining a garden, and
being a part of the University
of Florida's Lake Watch pro-
gram, regularly monitoring two
near-by lakes.
The school has been so dili-
gent with that program that one
of the lake% it monitors, which
had never been named, is now
called Eagle Pond in the stu-
dents'.honor (Walker's athletic
teams are called the Eagles).
Davis' students work with


the Kissimmee Valley
Archaeological & Historical
Conservancy. They attend
meetings, write the organiza-
tion's monthly newsletter, and
take part in a local survey and
dig at a pre-Columbian village
near Lake Placid.
Davis takes his students on
many field trips.,
He has given them opportu-
nities to swim with sharks,
snorkel coral reefs, and back
pack in the wilds of national


parks.
He works to create a sense
of connection with the earth.
He hopes his students will
become stewards of their world
and be conscious of leaving a
legacy.
"You want students to have
certain values," Davis said.
"When kids experience sci-
ence, from working with solar
collectors to trips to the Keys,
it gives them memories they'll'
never forget, and with them a


sense of ownership.
"Anytime kids are creating
something, they're learning,"
he added, "so I try to have kids
create displays, poems and
skits. We do a lot of English
and art in science."
Davis is a man who loves
his work and the students who
are at the core of it.
To be a good teacher he
said, "There has to be a love
for the student. You don't try to
love them, you just do."

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Seniors need a

nice building

Editor:
It's about time we senior cit-
izens had a nice building to go
to each day, plus transportation
too. All I ever read about are
play areas for children; besides
we pay taxes. Please help us.

'Many Americans may relish the prospect of seeing

journalists on the defensive in a courtroom. But ulti-

mately they may decide that the possible conse-

quences a less vigilant press, a dimmer light case

on critical issues -- are not worth that spectacle.'

JAMES KELLY, former managing editor, Time, 1985

Can power soon come from 'dog waste'?


OK, let's talk a
minute about rising
energy prices :A
good number of us
haye been hit with


LAURA'S

Laura


gas prices shooting
through the ceiling,
, the roof, and the upper atmos-
. phere in the past few months.
Those of us in Highlands
County seem to be experiencing
exceptionally high prices,
though the reasons why this is
so appear to be shrouded ,in
mystery.
It could be worse, though.
One of the advantages of living
in Central Florida during the
winter months is that it normal-
ly doesn't get horribly cold
down here. This means we
don't use heaters a lot. This
ss and means we are not in the situa-
tion many of our northern
e have friends find themselves in,
prior- where the cost of heating the
house to warmer than your
vered, refrigerator isn't cheap. Don't
f at the feel too bad for them though -
om. they'll be laughing at us in
August as we melt.


SLOOK Throw in gas
SLUUOO stoves and other
stuff that is pow-
are ered by riatural gas
and you have to ask
yourself what's a
clean, reliable way
to deal with all this? Well,
maybe you don't' have to ask
yourself that but today's col-
umn addresses that in some
form or fashion, so you might
as well.
A good friend alerted me to
this story, which comes out of
San Francisco, which is in
California, which explains a lot
about this story.
It concerns what the article
refers to as "dog waste," and the
plans that a garbage hauling
company by the name of Norcal
Waste have for it.
The plan is to collect the
aforementioned "dog waste"
and then to toss it into a device
called a "methane digester.""
This device supposedly con-
verts the waste into methane
gas. The created gas in turn can
be pumped into any contraption


that uses natural gas and run it.
Yep, you read that right. In
San Francisco, it may be possi-
ble to power your gas stove
using dog poop.
Norcal plans to get its supply
of dog waste from a popular
dog park. San Francisco has an
estimated 240,000 dogs and,
cats. That is a lot of poop.
A recycling and composting
consultant admitted that one of
the drawbacks to this plan was
getting communities to collect
the stuff. That certainly gives
me pause. The thought of going
out and collecting my dog's
waste does not send me into joy
and rapture.
In fact, one of the main rea-
sons I have a fenced in back
yard is so I don't have to worry
about the stuff that comes out of
Perky. The way 1 usually deal
with it is to open the back door,
let him outside, and then go
about my business until he a)
barks, b) scratches at the door,
or c) I remember I left him out
there. I open the door, he trots
back in minus the waste, and


life is good.
There have, of course, been
occasions when this happy plan
did not work out. The procedure
for dealing with this consists of
someone cleaning it up (who
does the job depends on who
finds it or who can be persuad-
ed that the person who found it
can't deal with it) and then
yelling at the dog, who by this
time has forgotten all about
what he deposited in the dining
room and is busy barking at a
low flying airplane. Life is not
as good when this happens, but
Perky is cute, so we forgive
him.
It will be interesting to see
how this whole poop power
thing works out in California.
I'd go on about it but I have to
go fill up my van. You have to
admit that the gas prices have
something in common with
"animal waste" both stink.

Babies; it's what life's all
about. I read somewhere that the
strongest urge a human being can
feel is to preserve life. itself.
Procreation is the tool with which


SHEILA SAYS
Sheila E. Ryan


we extend our genes into the
future. We hang onto life for as
long as possible, and then when our time is
finally up we're secure in the knowledge that
our offspring will continue on for us.
I'm an old woman, living in Florida, and I
rejoice over the news that my grandchild who
makes her home in another state, has given.
birth to a baby girl. I immediately begin to
think of what the child will be;'what kind of
life'she'll have. I worry that the mother and
father may be too young to deal with such a
tremendous job.
I think I should be there to help, but what
can I do with my arthritic hands and crumbling
bones? I suppose the only way I can be of use
is to tell the child some of the history of the
family into which it was born. But will the
child lkien" Will she care about the past?
It's enturel) possible that she Won't be inter-
ested until she's an adult herself and is faced
with the awesome task of bringing her own
children into this world of unrest. Then she
may turn to the older members of the family
with questions. But will it be too late? Will the
grandparents have passed on, taking their
knowledge with them? .
I did not know in\ paiern.il grAiudparents.
but I had a close reluaonship \% ith ni matieral
grandmother. I have in my possession her
diarN. \h-ich she %itote on the trip, Iroini
England to the United States in 1913, just one
year after the sinking of the Titanic.
She and her husband boarded a White Star
Line vessel, and sailed off with confidence,
never'once thinking about the fact that this was
the same company that built that infamous and
doomed ship. At least she never mentioned it
in that volume, which is so fragile now
because of its age I must keep it in a plastic
cover, in a dark place, to, preserve it and only
take it out to read now and then.


I hope one day one of my
descendants, possibly this new lit-
tle girl, will find it and see the sig-
nificance of it.


I see her with bowed head, her
delicate fingers turning page after
page, and I note, the small frown line between
the eyes, as she tries to decipher the handwrit-
ing and considers what motivated her ancestor
to make this- incredible journey into the
unknown. Think .of -leaving your family,
friends and the roots of your entire life in one
place and sailing off to some strange land
where you hope the only relative known to you
in this new country will be waiting for you on
the dock, as promised. What courageit must
have taken. The child reading this ancient
diary may be encouraged by the brave words to
undertake some perilous journey of her own.
, I want to tell this child about the heroes, the
crusaders, the drunks, cowards, saints and sin-
ners that have passed their genes, and their his-
tory down to her, in the hope that this knowl-
edge will help her deal with the problems that
are sure to come her way. But will it help to
know? Each generation has its own personal
devils to deal with.
And so I sit fondly gazing at the first photos
of a newborn girl's face sent to me by e-mail,
and I smile and say a quiet prayer that all will
go well with her. I hope she will be happy and
healthN. and able to deal successfully i ith
whatever obstacles come her way.
I do not pray she will be a president or a
queen, or rich or famous, I merely. pray she
will find happiness and fulfillment in whatever
choices she makes.
I hope someday I can visit with this child,
and I hope I can think of something wise and
witty to say so she'll remember'me. But even
if that never happens, I'm grateful she has been
born, and happy to welcome this beautiful lit-
tle girl into our family, and into our world.
God killing. she'll Iie long,. and well.

'Grey's Anatomy' star Dempsey to be Grand

Marshal for 54th annual 12 Hours of Sebring


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Heartthrob
actor Patrick Dempsey, star of
ABC's top-rated television
show "Grey's Anatomy," will
serve as Grand Marshal of the
54th running of the Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring on March 18.
"It is a tremendous honor to
be the Grand Marshal at
Sebring," acknowledged
Dempsey, who's been labeled
TV's biggest new star, thanks to
his portrayal of Dr. Derek
Shepherd -' a role in which he.
was nominated for best actor in
a drama at this year's Golden
Globes and Screen Actors Guild
awards. "I feel like I'm a kid in
the cand stLore, and I am going
to enjoy- every minute of it."


Will also compete in

Panoz GT Series race


Away from his .role as a
Hollywood sex symbol,
Dempsey is a car enthusiast and
an avid racer., When he isn't
behind the wheel of his 1959
356 Porsche (the same make
and model that James Dean
drove), his auto interests take
him to the track.
At Sebring, he will not only
serve as Grand Marshal for
America's oldest and most pres-
.tigious sports car race, but the
day before he will'take a run at
the checkered flag when he


competes in the Panoz GT
Series race at Sebring
International Raceway.
"Maybe I need to win the
Panoz race Friday so I'll know
my way to Winner's Circle for -
the 12 Hours," said Dempsey, a
Panoz Racing School graduate
who has been racing; in the
Panoz GT Series .since 2004.
"That would be sweet!"
Last year was Dempsey's
most successful se aon to date
on the racing circuit as he com-
peted in the Baja 1,000 with


drivers Boris Said and Oriol
Servia and had an impressive
third-place finish in the Panoz
GT race at Road Atlanta.
"I enjoy the camaraderie
among the racers and the pas-
sion of the fans," said Dempsey,
who last month received a 1969
Mercedes as a 40th birthday gift
from wife Jillian. "I have
always been a race fan and to
have the opportunities I have
today is very rewarding."
Cosmopolitan's "Fun
Fearless Male of the Year" and
People Magazine's runner-up
for, the "Sexiest Man of the
Year" title will not be the first
Hollywood star to race down
the Ulmann Straight at Sebring.
Paul Newman, Gene Hackman,

PATRICK DEMPSEY

Craig T. Nelson, James Brolin,
Steve McQueen, David
Carradine, Lorenzo Lamas and
Dick Smothers are among those
who have previously driven the
famous Sebring race circuit.

for the 2005-06 season.
Then imagine that with .this hodgepodge ros-
ter of players who didn't see themselves playing
before the season, Coach K and the Dukies went
on to win every single game on the schedule.
This far-fetched analogy wasn't that outra-
geous this year for the Avon Park girls junior
varsity basketball team, which finished the sea-'
son 18-0 despite a shorthanded genesis.
"At the lbeginning,of the season we thought
that we weren't going to have a team, to be hon-
est. with you," said head coach Paulette Daley.
"We started the season with about six girls on
JV. I was worried at first because you want to
have enough for practice and I knew that one of
players wouldn't be able to play in the Friday
games. So I told the girls to go out and.talk to


friends, recruit. Lo and behold, we ended up
with nine girls."
To be sure, the Avon Park JV girls don't
exactly pl:i\ in the ACC. But then again, there is
no overriding team at Duke to swoop in and pil-
lage your top talent, like the Avon Park varsity
team. It's quite the paradox for the coach of a
JV team to see the big picture, the school's bas-
ketball program in its entirety, and to achieve
despite constantly losing your best athletes.
Coach Daley knows about this reality first hand.
"We lost some girls to varsity throughout the
season. Like freshman superstar Beonca.
Godfrey., Awesome athlete. She went up at the
end of the season and made an impact at dis-
tricts," said Daley, proud of the promising play-
ers she's had the oppoi iuniit to coach who will
most likely be varsity at the beginning of next
season,
"We also had outstanding play from Lyvetrius
Godfrey and Daija Barret, and then Brearnna
Tate really stepped up her play when Daija left."

In a different zone


AbOut a month ago, I
packed up all of my "essential"
,belongings, crammed them
into a Nissan Altima-shaped
jigsaw puzzle with just enough
room for one driver and an
uncomfortable cat, and drove
... and drove ... and drove.
Twenty seven hours from my
apartment in Denver, Colo. to
my new home in Sebring (with
a brief stop in Cape Girardeau,.
Mo.) :
I traveled, doing my best to
keep the spring-loaded con-
tents of my vehicle from burst-
ing at every gas station. Eight
states, 1,907 miles, three time


zones.
For the first time in inmy life,
I was on Eastern Standard
Time..The sultan of all time
zones and the region in which,
our nation's capitol, George
Steinbrenner and ESPN set
their watches.
I had always marveled in my
youth at the ability of eastern-
ers to survive in this warped
universe. Going about daily
life while.the rest of the coun-
try lazily smacked their snooze
bars. Staying up until 12:30 to
watch Saturday Night Live.
My gosh, that's tomorrow!

Of course, the biggest goal of
the season was beating Sebring,
a team that gave them fits last
year and really tightened the
screws for their second meeting
this year.
"They played a lot better
against us the second time. I
don't know if they had our
plays figured out or what, but
they played a lot harder. We
totally stepped it up as a team,
and without the help of my
assistant coach Alycia Tate, I
know we wouldn't have been as
successful," added Daley.
Maintaining a premiere col-
lege basketball program and
developing the raw talent of
high school youngsters has its
similarities and its differences.
In the NCAA, top players from
all around the country can be
eased into the system as fresh-
men and sophomores, whereas
high school athletics are
dependent on the talent pool of
the community, and the quality
of the local middle school pro-
grams. Again, Avon Park's JV
team was fortunate n this
regard.
"The majority of the girls
who came to us were actually
on the undefeated team at the

Ultra-cyclist sets new Bike


Sebring record at Raceway


SART YOR OW

ADVNTR


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Bike Sebring 12/24 Hours
course record was broken Saturday during the
annual ultra-cycling race.
James. Kern, 48, Sunnyvale, Calif., rode 516
1/2 miles in 24 hours on a recumbent bicycle,
smashing the record of' 500 miles set last year.
"He came to break that record, that's, what
we've been told," Candy Smith of Mark Andrews
Allstate said.
The endurance event drew its largest crowd
this year due in part to the fair weather which
graced the 170 participants who rode from
Sebring International Raceway to Frostproof's
Lake Reedy to Lorida and back to the track.
After that initial 100 miles the racers who-
rode a variety of bikes from tandems to a hand-
pedaled trike completed 12-mile loops from
the track to U.S. 98 to State Road 17, returning to
the Raceway.
The 12-hour contestants finished racing at 6:30
p.m. while the 24-hour racers continued through
the night on the track's 3.7-mile course.
"This is the best weather we've had," Smith
said, explaining it contributed not only to the
turnout but also to faster finishing times. "In the
past we've had heavy winds. It always helps
when we have weather like that."
The race drew' contestants from France,
Canada and across the United States, but only
one from Highlands County.
Many came specifically for the 24-hour race,
which doubled as a qualifier for the Race Across
America.
Race Across America is a single-stage event
(no overnight breaks like the Tour de France)
which calls on its competitors to ride from
Oceanside, Calif., to Atlantic City, N.J. covering
more than 3,000 miles in about nine days.
Of the 41 one people who attempted it, eight
qualified Saturday for RAAM by riding at least
420 miles in 24 hours.
While the other cyclists could make their race
"easier" by drafting off other racers, RAAM
hopefuls were not allowed to do so, making theirs
a true solo effort.
Lou Meyer, of Berwyn, Pa., rode 386 miles in
24 hours, Smith said.
Meyer is 72 years old.
"We've had a lot of good comments on the
race," Smith said, explaining that the Rotary
Club of Highlands County expects to net about
$10,000, which the club will put toward local
charities. "This is our biggest event."
Between Frostproof and Avon Park, cyclists
encountered a convoy of 2-3 dozen tractors mak-
ing their way to Donaldson Park for the 14th
annual Antique Engine and Tractor Show in Avon

William 'Bill' Schwarz, of Albany, N.Y., brings up
the rear Saturday during the Bike Sebring 12/24
Hours endurance races. Schwarz registered to
compete in the 24-hour event but came down with
a cold days before the race and chose the shorter
course. Schwarz, who began riding his hand-ped-
aled bicycle about two years ago and is a veteran
endurance racer, said the cold was a,'blessing in
disguise' as he wasn't fully-prepared for the heat
and humidity of Highlands County. Schwarz fin-
ished the day with 161.5 miles and took first place
in his age group and bike category, being the only
entrant on a hand-bike.

Park.
"We found out about them Friday night."
Smith said. Last-minute coordination ensured the
overlapping events didn't hinder each other.
Smith and her boss Mark Andrews spent most
of the year preparing for the race, which
employed about 30 volunteers from the Rotary
Club and Highlands Pedalers, the local bicycling
club.
"It's not enough, really," she said.
The Rotary Club of Highlands County is the
smallest and newest of the Rotaries and meets
weekly at 6:15 p.m. at Candlelight restaurant.
With the help of Florida Hospital, Griffin
Carpet Mart, and Frames and Images, the Rotary
Club was able to provide rest stops at the Lake
Reedy turnaround and at the track as well as
medals for the top three finishers in each age cat-
egories and overall winners and tee-shirts for all
riders.
Each rider was outfitted with timing chips
which recorded their lap time every time they
passed by the start-finish line at the track.
Smith said'the track's services ate donated.
