News-Sun
SEBRING Walking from;
sunset to sunrise isn't just a&
way to raise money and aware-
ness for cancer research.
Participants of the American
Cancer Society's Relay for Life
experience the analogy of fac-
ing the darkness of being diag-
nosed with cancer followed by
the hope of treatment when the
sun rises in the morning.
"Cancer doesn't sleep," said
Denise Benavides, unit execu-
tive director for Hardee and
Highlands counties. "Patients
don't have the option to not
take treatments if they want to
survive."
Benavides said the 18-hour
walk around the Sebring High
School track brought about 12
teams (25 had registered) rais-
ing more than $77,000 by
Saturday morning's count.
The goal for Sebring was

one has a beautification project

needs cleanup or plants to make
it look nice, a business front, or
a park," she said.

County kept busy


battling brush fires


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Weather and
the woods, got hot and dry
enough Friday to keep county
and Division of Forestry fire
crews busy all day.
In fact, when the News-Sun
visited the Emergency
Operations Center to ask
Emergency Operations Director
Tim Eures about the rash of
recent fires, he didn't have time
to talk. Dispatch had just
received another fire call.
That blaze in the mid-after-
noon off Tractor Road turned
out to be a fire in a storage trail-
er. near the U.S. 27 and U.S. 98
intersection.
Everything else was open
land.
County crews had already
had to fight a four-acre fire on
'Thursday, then had no less than
four brush fires Friday, one on
20-30 acres on the south side of
State Road 66, along the
Jackson-Josephine Canal.
Frank Gibbs, senior forest
ranger with the Division of
Forestry, said downed trees and
underbrush from two years of
heavy hurricane seasons have
left a lot of fuel to burn, not to
mention it's the time of year for
brush fires.
He said his crews have been


out cutting fire breaks, it seems,
almost every single day.
Burning Bronco
One of those \as for a fire at
noon Friday in a part of the
Fryman property behind
Lowe's Home Improvement
Warehouse. A driver in an old
Ford Bronco had driven into the
area and had car trouble.
SGibbs said the Bronco caught
fire, and that caught the woods
on fire. Scott Mann, chief of
West Sebring Volunteer Fire
Department, said Steven
Ritenour, one of his crew, was
first on the scene.
Shortly after that, Assistant
Chief Gloy Turner and fire-
fighters Kim Mann and Ricky
Mercer arrived with Brush
Truck 10 to control the fire until
Gibbs' tractor plow arrived and
cut a fire break.
Josephine Canal
Immediately after getting
that fire under control, at rough-
'ly 1 p.m., Gibbs had to respond
to the fire on S.R. 66.
He said he only had one
working tractor plow in
Highlands County that day. He
managed to call a Division of
Forestry plow in from Palmdale
as a backup.

er with the DeSoto 'City

Firefighter Travis Tomlinson with West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department works water into a grass fire
late Friday afternoon off Sparta Road while Assistant Fire Chief Gloy Turner maneuvers Brush Truck
10 around the flames. One of several brush fires that day, this grass fire threatened dwellings and a
church, burning about five acres of vacant grassland.


Volunteer Fire Department,
refilled brush trucks off the tank
on Engine 18 until DeSoto City
Tanker 18 could arrive. As of 2
p.m., when Lorida Volunteer
Fire Department's Brush Truck
24 arrived, the county already
had at least three brush trucks
on scene, in addition to a


Division of Forestry Brush
Truck.
Charles Andrews of Fire
Services said the site, mostly
tall, dry grass, had about five to
six acres of muck bay head.
By 4:30 p.m. crews had the
fire surrounded by fire breaks
and contained to the west side


of the canal, Gibbs said, but the
burning muck will cause prob-
lems for weeks.

Then, another fire caught up
five to six acres of grassland

Daughter finds mother after 37 years


Never gave

up hope

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING When Sebring
resident Gloria Coffey's family
and friends get together, it's a
blast.
When she and daughter
Maria Elizabeth O'Brien reunit-
ed after 37 years apart, it was a
Godsend.
O'Brien found her mother on
April 12, 1999. Since then, they
and Coffey's second daughter,
Mary Shields, have been like
old friends.
"It's just so much joy, just to
be able to have (Maria) in my
life," Coffey said. "A hole in
my heart has been filled up."
Maria
In 1961, when she was 7
months old, O'Brien's father
sent Coffey to New Orleans
where her family had to come
from Fort Lauderdale to get her.
He took O'Brien to. family in
Mexico for five years, changed
her name and Social Security
number, divorced Coffey and
told their daughter her mother,
died in a car wreck.
Meanwhile, Coffey was pay-
ing detectives to find her
daughter, while O'Brien never
believed her mother had died.
"She instinctively knew,"
Coffey said.
When O'Brien was 6, her dad
brought her back to the United
States. They moved a lot, and
he kept her from sports, per-
forming or doing anything that
could get her hurt or would

"Hearing Mom's voice,, for
the first time is like being born
again," she said. "It was life-
changing."
The actual reunion was two
weeks later. O'Brien flew her
mother first class to Portland,
Ore.
"It's all about the timing of
things," O'Brien said. "When
the moment was right, I found
her.".

Half-sister Mary Shields,
eight years younger, grew up an
only child. She always wanted a
sister.
O'Brien said Shields saved
their mother's life because she
had someone to love while she
kept the pain of her loss private,
"I never knew," Shields said.
Shields now lives in Orlando
with husband Randy aqd their
2-year-old son, Ryan.
At first, Shields was scared to
meet her sister, fearing jealousy:
However, once the sisters met,
those fears left her.
"I find I want to share my
mom," Shields said. "She's
always been there for me. I
wish Maria could have benefit-
ed from Mom."
Coffey is glad Shields now
has close family besides her.
"They're very happy to have
each other now," she said.
Reunion
The first family reunion' was
July 1999. O'Brien flew to
Florida for a first birthday party
with Mom, and Disney World.
It wasn't awkward at all,
Shields said. Right away, they
finished each other's sentences,
walked alike, talked with their
hands,' and laughed constantly.
They even share the same hob-
bies.,
Similarities extend to
O'Brien's 18-year-old daughter
Sarina.
"Maria is the spitting image
of Mom," Shields said. "Sarina
is the spitting image of me."


"You could swear they were
sisters," Coffey said.
Shields said she, her sister
and mom all seem to be klutzy.
Coffey once fell from the stage
at Highlands Little Theatre into
the orchestra pit and slid down
a hill .aOregon on a Christmas
trip. Shields had a torn knee -
anterior, cruciate ligament
(ACL) -- and was wheelchair
bound during the Disney trip.
The only one with any grace,
Shields said, is Sarina -a bal-
lerina.
Gloria
All the time O'Brien was
gone, Coffey was there for
Shields and countless others.
Coffey drew strength from her
own mother, a strong and per-
sonable woman.
"When she died," Coffey
said, "I became her."
For the last 22 years, she's
worked with and played pracu-
cal jokes on coworkers, Karen
Collette, Mike Fitch, Dale
Grubb, Christine Parker, Gregg
Stupinski and Will Swain at
Smith Barney in Sebring. At her
retirement party Feb. 24, they
personally paid her back with a
dream trip cruise to Alaska:

SEBRING Recently, a'
defendant in county court pled
guilty to a charge under a plea
agreement and was sentenced
for jail time.
Howeveer. he simply walked
out of the courtroom.
' What happened, according to
Lt. Gus Garcia with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, is that a visiting judge
didn't use a key phase bailiffs
recognize as a cue to take some-
one in custody.
It was a simple mistake, but
it complicated matters for
Garcia. At the time, he was both
the internal investigations offi-
cer for the sheriff and supervi-


sor of the bailiffs.
Sgt. Darin Hood had to con-
duct the -investigation, while
Garcia prepared to move from
supervisor of bailiffs to full
time head of the internal affairs
division.
The change was made effec-
tive Feb. 20. and he moed into
the new post full time on Feb.
27.
"Typically, the (Internal
Affairs Division) is not in a
supervisor capacity," Garcia
said. "Now I report directly to
the sheriff. It's the best way to
stay neutral."
In addition to investigating
complaints against the sheriff's,
office, Garcia. performs, back-
ground checks on prospective


hires, staff inspection (reviews
procedures for efficiency and
ethics), and provides an early
intervention program.
When asked if the staff
inspection would fall under the
heading of "professional stan-
dards," which included internal,
investigations under then Lt,,
David Paeplow, Mike Durham,
legal counsel for the sheriff's
office, said it would be some-
what similar.
The main difference,
Durham said, is that internal
affairs doesn't handle training.
Capt. Jeff Barfield does that.
"I have plenty to do without
that," Garcia added.
Durham said the intervention
program helps prevent the need


Family of ALS victim hosts fund-raiser

AVON PARK Sammy
Renfro, born and raised in Avon
Park, has recently been diag-
nosed with ALS amyotrophicc
lateral sclerosis), more'com-
monly known as Lou Gehrig's
disease.
ALS is a progressive, degen-
erative disease. leading to loss,
of muscle control. The early
symptoms often include
increasing muscle weakness in
the hands, arms, legs, .muscles
of speech; swallowing, or
breathing. Though the degener-
ative process affects different
people in different ways. the'
weakening and paralysis even-
tually spread to the trunk. When
breathing muscles are affected,
a ventilator becomes necessary
for survival. For some, the'
degeneration stops, though no
one is sure how or why.
While there is no cure,


Renfro will need medical treat-
ment and already has been fit-
ted for a wheel chair. Having
been self-employed, he had no
health insurance at the time of
his diagnosis. Though he has
since acquired Medicare, he
and his family will still be faced
with enormous medical expens-
es as well as other emotional
and financial challenges.
In order to help, Renfro's
brother and sister-in-law,
Freddie and Dot Renfro, would
like to invite friends, family,
'and concerned community
members to attend a barbecue
dinner fundrraiser from 3-6'
p.m. Saturday, March 25, at 424
Arbuckle Branch Road. While
they will be furnishing the meat
and swamp cabbage, they are
asking people to bring a cov-
ered dish to share and a dona-
tion.
. RSVPs are requested for the
barbecue dinner by Monday,


March 20, and can be made by
calling Dot Renfro at 443-1621.
A brand new 835 Mossberg

Tanksley faces

grand theft,
forgery
SEBRINGi- A local man

20, in a September 2005 for-
gery case.
According to complaint
affidavits, Matthew Ray
Tanksley, 21, walked into
Wauchula State Bank on
Ryan Road in Sebring on
Sept. 14.
Reports said he attempted
to cash a check for $1,750,
which he endorsed it in the
presence of the bank teller.
The teller contacted the
account holder, and learned
the check was forged, so she
could not complete the trans-
action.
On Oct. 19, after Highlands
County sheriff's deputies had
arrested Tanksley on unrelat-
ed charges, he allegedly told
them got the check from a
third party, and allegedly
knew it was forged when he
tried to cash it.

under warrants for uttering a
forged instrument and grand
theft.

without bail on charges of
petit theft and trespass, for
which he had been sentenced
to time served.

Torruella

charged with

having cocaine
AVON PARK Police
stopped a Nissan on Feb. 18
for a defective tail light.
As the driver pulled into a
car wash on Hal McRae
Boulevard, the Avon Park
police officer allegedly saw
him put his hand out of the
car window and drop some-
thing.
After talking with the driv-
er Edwin Torruella, 33, of.
Sebring the officer went
back to the entrance to look
for the dropped object.
Allegedly, on the ground,
he found a transparent red
bag containing cocaine, a
piece of crack cocaine, and a
clear bag containing cannabis,
according to field tests.
The officer also found a
clear bag with white powder,
but field tests showed no
reaction.
When told he was being
arrested for possession of
cocaine and cannabis,
Torruella allegedly said he
only discarded the cannabis.
Reports said the officer
also found a Philly Blunt


cigar, from which cannabis
smokers sometimes empty the
tobacco to refill it with
cannabis,
In the driver's door, reports
said, the officer found three
pieces of a rock-like sub-
stance that also field-tested
positive for crack cocaine.
According to reports,
Torruella said he had pur-
chased the cannabis from a
black female on Cummings
Avenue, but said he was not
aware of the cocaine in the
car door or on the pavement.
He was charged with pos-
session of cocaine, less than
20 grams of cannabis, and
drug paraphernalia.
He also was found to have
an active warrant alleging.

worthless check of more than
$150.
Bail was set at $2,000. The
warrant charge had no bail.

26, a Sebring police officer
saw a blue Toyota going north
on Highlands Avenue near
Kenilworth Boulevard with-
out any visible tag lights or

He stopped the car, and
while talking to Clark, the

smelled a faint odor of alco-
hol coming from the rear seat
where a third person was sit-
ting.
The officer asked if Clark
had any weapons in the car.
....According to arrest reports,
Clark told him he had a hand-
gun in" the glove box, but did
not have a concealed weapons
.permit.
The officer removed the
three men and searched the
car. He found a Hi-Point .45-
caliber handgun with a seven
rounds in the magazine in a
white box in the glove com-
partment, reports said.
A second officer searched
Bryant and found a clear plas-
tic Baggie sticking out of
Bryant's right sneaker.
Reports said there were two
Baggies in the shoe: One with
29 individually wrapped
Baggies of cannabis, and the
other with 12 Baggies holding
a total 52 tablets of "ecstasy,"

reports said.
Reports said Bryant also
had $1,186, separated by
denominations in his front
pants pockets.
A K-9 unit had alerted on
the car's center console, but
nothing was there. Officers
then checked Clark as he
stood in front of the patrol
car.
Looking under the car
where he was standing, they
found a large plastic Baggie
containing cannabis. The
car's surveillance system
allegedly recorded Clark toss-
ing the bag down and kicking
it under the car.
Police charged Clark with
tampering with physical evi-
dence, possession of less than
20 grams of cannabis, and
possession of drug parapher-
nalia. Bail was set at $2,000.

at the intersection of East
Pine Street and Verona
Avenue.
It had a cracked wind-
shield.
Avon Park police cited the
driver, Joshua Lynn Smith,
19, of Avon Park, then asked
if there were any drugs in the
car.
He allegedly said "yes,"
but at that moment, according
to arrest reports, the officer
stopped him and read Smith
his Miranda Rights from a
prepared card.
Allegedly, Smith agreed to
talk, and told the officer there
was marijuana in the back
seat in a "Fossil" watch box,
but said it wasn't his.
The officer searched the car
and found the drugs in a clear
plastic bag where Smith
allegedly said it was, along
with a package of rolling
papers in the back seat.
The officer asked if Smith
had any thing illegal on him,
and he allegedly said he had
three pills wrapped in cello-
phane he found "at the mud
hole."
The officer allegedly found
the pills in Smith's right front
pants pocket, and was able to
identify them as 5 milligram
tablets of Oxycodone.
The officer charged Smith
with possession of the
restricted drug Oxycodone,
less than 20 grams of

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
Treating head lice is often. a
difficult and time consuming.
undertaking and is critical to
eradication.
Just as germs become resist-
ant to antibiotics, and insects to
pesticides, lice can also develop
resistance to treatments.
It is also important to under-
stand that having head lice is
nothing to be ashamed of.
According to the Center for
Disease Control Web site, any-
one who comes in close contact
with someone who already has
head lice can get them and
"personal hygiene or cleanli-
ness in the home or school has
nothing to do with getting head
lice."
Most important is to diag-
nose and treat the problem as
quickly as possible.
Checking hair for lice should
be done periodically anyway,
but especially if .symptoms
occur. These include a tickling
feeling of something moving in
the hair, itching, irritability, and
sometimes sores on 'the head
caused by scratching.
To determine the presence of
lice, hair must be searched thor-
oughly for nits (eggs), nymphs
(young lice), and adult lice.
Nits are oval. shaped, yellow
to white in color, about the size
of a knot in a thread, and can
easily be mistaken for dandruff
or even drops of hair spray.
They are laid by adult females
at the base of the hair shaft,
closest to the scalp and hatch in
about one week.
Nymphs look like small adult
lice and reach adulthood about
seven days after hatching.
Adults are about the size of a
sesame seed, have six legs, and
are tan to greyish-white. They
can live up to 30 days on a per-
son's head. They cannot survive
without a host for more than
two days.
When determining the pres-
ence of lice, nymphs and adults
are often difficult to find
. because they are usually-few in
number and move quickly. Nits
are fastened tightly to the hair
shaft and cannot move. If they
are found within one-fourth
inch from the scalp, infestation
has occurred,
According to the CDC, treat-
ment involves using an over-
the-counter or prescription
medication. The following
steps are recommended:
1. Remove clothing from the
waist up.
2. Apply medicine according
to label instructions (long hair
may require more than one bot-
tle). Pay close attention to the
amount of time the medication
is supposed to remain in hair
and whether or not rinsing after
treatment is recommended. Do
not use creme rinse or sham-
poo/conditioner before using
lice medication or re-wash hair
for one to two days afterward.
3. Have infested person put
on clean clothing after treat-
ment.
4. If a few lice are still found
in hair eight to 12 hours after
treatment but are moving more
slowly than before, comb out
dead and remaining lice with a
fine-toothed nit comb. The
medicine may take longer to
kill lice.


5. After eight to 12 hours, if
no dead lice are found and lice
are. still as active as before, see
your health care provider for a:
different medication and follow
new instructions.
6. Nit combs should be used
to comb nits and lice from the
hair shaft, which should be
done every two to three days
following treatment for two to
three weeks until it is certain
that all nits and lice have been
removed.
7. If using over-the-counter
.medication, retreat in seven' to
10 days if prescription med-
ication, retreat in seven to 10
days only if live lice are found.
Treating the household,
according to CDC recommen-
dations, should not require a lot
of effort. All clothing and bed
linens used by the infested per-


. ....


son during the two days prior to
treatment should be washed in
hot water and dried on the
hottest dryer setting. Non-
washables should be dry
cleaned. All stuffed animals,
comforters or other items that'
cannot be washed should be
sealed in a plastic bag for two
weeks. Combs and brushes
should be soaked in .rubbing
alcohol or Lysol for one hour or
washed with soap and hot water
(130 degrees). Floors and furni-
ture frequented by the infested
individual should be vacuumed
(though the risk of infestation
re-occurring from a louse on
carpet or furniture is very
small).
Following these instructions
should remedy the problem in
most cases. If not, it may be that
the lice are resistant to the treat-


ment used. In this case, a health
care professional should be
consulted.
According to www.medifo.
co.uk/headlice.html,, all treat-
ments have the potential for
unwanted side effects and
resistance to treatments is an
increasing problem with lice.
This site claims that perme-
thrin one percent creme rinse is
generally the most effective
chemical treatment, but that lice
can become resistant to any of
the many treatments available.
They also suggest that if re-
infestation occurs, it is wise to
use an alternative form of treat-
ment for the second infestation
in order to prevent resistance
from developing.

Work day planned for town's Main Street project


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Keep
Lake Placid Beautiful and the
Greater Lake Placid Chamber
of Commerce have scheduled
Saturday, March'25, to plant the
next phase of the South Main
Street StreetScape project.
Mike Eisenhart, coordinator
of Keep Lake Placid Beautiful
said that the project will gener-
ally be an extension of the ini-
tial plantings, which begin at
U.S. 27 and run north along
South Main Street.
Bert Harris III, president of
Keep Lake Placid Beautiful, is
requesting help from the public.
Harris said several people will
be needed to help plant the trees


and shrubs. This project will be
about twice the size of the last.
"We are praying for a cool
work day and lots of help! Last
year our friends helping seemed
to enjoy working for the better-
ment of the town," Eileen May,
executive director of the Lake
Placid Chamber of Commerce,
said.
Eisenhart is working to
install the basic irrigation sys-
tem before the work day. He
hopes the public will join in for
the fun part: the planting of
trees.
Highlands County Road and
Bridge Department cleared
away the. exotic Brazilian
Pepper and ear trees, and hauled


in a lot of fill dirt to eliminate
the unsightly drop off.
"The Road and Bridge left us
a beautiful grade to reforest.
Their help saved us a ton of
money and really made this
project manageable," May said.
Jim Clinard, treasurer of
Keep Lake Placid Beautiful,
said that in addition to work, the
organization needs friends to
sponsor a tree or two. To spon-
sor a tree will require a oun..
tion of $100, but any contribu-
tion will help.
Contributions should be sent
to Eileen May, executive direc-
tor of the Lake Placid Chamber
of Cormnerce, 18 Oak Ave.,
Lake Placid.


Carolyn Phypers, vice presi-
dent of Keep Lake Placid
Beautiful, stated that the proj-
ect is sponsored by a Florida
Department of Forestry Grant
to the tune of $15,000. But that
is just a start. Irrigation and
trees will be more than that.
Fortunately Sommers
Irrigation is providing the irri-
gation materials at cost. Don
Cram is coordinating the irriga-
tion installation. Buckhorn
Nursery provided a lot of big
oak trees. Steve Griffin of
Griffin Trees will install cab-
bage palms at cost. The palms
are provided by Lykes Bros.
Inc.

Highlands County

For Real Estate


Need $2,294,750 for future schools


Estimate covers
10-year period

over Highlands

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 ourt
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
Jan. 10, 1957.
To keep pace with the
increasing population of the
schools as the result of
Highlands County's growing
pains, $2,294,750 will be need-
ed in the next 10 years for new
schools and
renovation
and alter-
ations to
the existing, //- /
ones. /
That was

submitted
to the
school
board
Tuesday by Superintendent
Fred Wild, based on a survey of
the future school needs.
Wild presented interesting
- data in table and graph forms,
showing the upward trend in the
number of youngsters entering
the county schools since the


start of 1945-46 term.
The survey shows that the
average daily membership in
the white schools increased
23.15 percent and 18.22 percent
from the 1950-51 through the
1955-56 terms. At the begin-
ning of the 1960-61 term, based
on the increase in the past, the
average daily membership
would reach 4479. In 1965, the
estimate is 5,400 pupils.
The average daily member-
ship as of last December 3 was
3,704, but according to the stan-
dards for school buildings, the
capacity of the present plants is
2,682, leaving 741 children
housed unsatisfactorily. By
1960, the additional number to
be cared for in new schools


would be 1,797,
shows.

the survey

To pro-
vide for
that 'even-
tuality, a
capital out-
lay of
about
$1,695,000
will be nec-
essary for
additional
buildings


and revamping the present
ones. To that sum, an additional
$600,000 will be required to
take care of the needs in 1965,.,
Through the latter period,'the
following :atnounts will be
required for the various
schools, according to the esti-


mates in the survey:
Avon Park Elementary,
$452,000; Avon Park Junior
and Senior High, $160,000;

Highlands County's Oldest Car Show Returns
Avon Park- When it comes to oldest, Wells Dodge Chrysler in Avon Park knows some-
things about it. This year they are celebrating their 75th anniversary, establishing the store
as the oldest dealership in Florida and the oldest Daimler Chrysler dealership in the south-
eastern United States.
Kicking off this year of celebration, the dealership is hosting their 7th Annual Car Show ...4
on Saturday, March 11th. The Car Show history started eight years ago when Wells moved
from their original location on Main Street in Avon Park to their current address on US 27
between Avon Park and Sebring. Doing the math, you wonder how the store can host the
seventh annual car show in eight years. There was a one-year lapse during the infamous
highway construction on US 2'7.
Every year on the Saturday before the 12 Hours of Sebring, the Wells staff move the
inventory off the front of the lot, create a customer parking lot on the adjacent property
and bring in over 100 classic cars, antiques, muscle cars, rods, and race cars.
One of the unique features at'the show is there is no entry fee to display a vehicle. The
vehicles, however, are restricted to 1979 models and older. With no entry fee, some timid
owners enter cars that normally remain at home in the garage and every year vehicles have

South Florida Seaplane Fly-in drops in to Sebring next weekend


By PHIL ATfTNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Seaplane
lovers will get an eyeful and
earful on Sunday, March 12,
when the 14th annual "South
Florida Seaplane Fly-in drops


in to Lake Jackson.
Bill Schmalz of Deerfield
Beach said organizers sent out
200 or more postcards to area
flyers to get a good crowd this
year. He said people tend to do
better with a written announce-


ment reminding them of an
event.
Of course, turnout has been
good over the last decade and a
half, he said.
The Lake Amphibian Flyers
Club hosts 'the social event


every second Sunday in March.
It started Jan. 10, 1993, at what
was then Lakeside Ice Cream
and Deli.
Last year's event pulled in
roughly 20 flyers.' The first year
drew 1,000 planes, Schmalz
said:
The event runs from 10 a.m.
until 4 p.m., with food and fun
at the Sunset Grille, 2650 U.S.
27 South. There's ample room
for seaplane parking on the
south shoreline, a mix of grass
and white sand, as long as
planes keep to the west of the
Sunset Grille dock.


Fuel will be available
through the Sebring Regional
Airport, as long as flyers make
arrangements ahead of time.
Schmalz has given out infor-
mation on local motels, if flyers
feel like staying overnight.
They might have to compete
with the 12 Hours of Sebring
race.
Perhaps next year, he'd like
to see a two-day event, perhaps
.with an evening barbecue; if he
can interest enough flyers in
making reservations now.
Competing with other events
has been the reason the fly-in


has remained on the date that it
has and kept to one day.
In the future, however,
Schmalz would like to explore
coupling up the fly-in with a
local festival, perhaps even.hav-
ing flyers offer demonstration
rides, if possible. With the room
along the Sunset Grille beach
front, he could see a number of,
planes and vintage boats gather-
ing for a joint event.
Seaplane pilots are a differ-
ent breed, Schmalz said. They
can land anywhere with enough
water. He hopes plenty will
come and enjoy next weekend's
food and fun.


PHIL ATTINGER/News-S
Brush Truck 10 with the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department rolls out of a fire scene Friday after-
.noon between Don Drive and Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse. Frank Gibbs, senior forest range:
with the Division of Forestry, said a motorists was driving off road in an old Ford Bronco when it caught
fire, and then caught the woods on fire.


BRUSH
Continued from 1A
behind dwellings, a barn and a
church on Sparta Road.
Gibbs sent his brush truck
and West Sebring sent Brush'
Trucks 9 and 10 and its tanker.
Within 20-30 minutes, the
fire was urider control, but
brush trucks,had to traierse a
ditch to reach the site, getting
stuck at least twice.
Eures is on record that brush
fires are long duration calls that
wear people out.
According to Eures. a typical
brush fire can liave pup to four
separate fire departments and
15 pieces of apparatus fire
engines, brush trucks, tankers
and other vehicles. They all
carry their own water to a wild-
fire and almost every county
firefighter is a volunteer, taking
time away from jobs and fami-
lies without pay.

Think positive


Positive Mobility transports


disabled in
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Ron Layne discovered that non-
emergency, medical transportation for the dis-
abled of Highlands County was missing. That's
why he started a specialized transportation assis-
tance called Positive Mobility.
Layne had started a similar service in Ohio
when his wife was recruited by Florida Hospital.
Once she was hired as an electroencephalogram
technician and respiratory therapist, they moved,
to Sebripg. After doing his research, and making
the decision to start Positive Mobility, he then
proceeded with the time-consuming process of
getting all the licenses and approvals. He has just
recently opened.
Positive Mobility is licensed and fully insured
in Highlands County. Although the business is
not an emergency service and does not perform
medical or life-saving procedures, the staff has
experience working with disabled persons and all
drivers have been trained and certified from the
National Safety Council on transporting passen-
gers with special needs. Their drivers have had
background checks, and Layne requires' them to
wear clean uniforms and identification badges at
all times.
"We have three brand new vehicles. All are
wheelchair accessible, and two can accommodate
either a stretcher or wheelchair. Currently we are
private pay, requiring cash, checks or credit
cards, but Medicare patients may be a possibility.


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
'William Layne stands on the back of the van's lift and holds the wheelchair of his sister Naomi Layne,
while-owneRon R Layne-presses the lift button.


NEW


/


Highlands
in the future," Layne said.
For people who are wheelchair or stretcher:
bound, he provides local or long distance service.:
And there is no charge for companions who wish
to accompany those patients. In addition, he will
assist people with their insurance paperwork and
forms if necessary. There also is an ambulatory,
rate for those who need special transportation,
assistance whether it's airport service, or travel-1
ing out of state.
Positive Mobility goes directly to wherever;
needed. It's especially helpful for people with arn
illness who might otherwise get stuck in the hos-
pital waiting. Although Highlands County
Emergency Medical Services will transport a per-
son to the hospital, it will not return them to an"
assisted care facility.
"So if a person is released from a hospital after
5 p.m. at night or on weekends, we can efficient-
ly take care of them," Layne said.
Layne's company motto is "Think Positive.".
That's a hopeful message when someone is`
already stressed and in the throes of a medical
emergency.
Positive Mobility is at 1749 U.S. 27 South!
(next to Ming Tong Restaurant). To discuss rates.
and make appointments, phone 471-3876 or calf
toll free at (877) 605-3204. The fax number is:
386-5553 or e-mail to positivemobility@earth-'
link.net. Although office hours are 9 a.m. to 4,
p.m. Monday through Friday, Positive Mobility.,
provides service 24 hours, seven days a week.


TDFFIN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley will be back next Sunday providing the
News-Sun readers with a business column and feature story.
He will focus on the medical staff at Highlands Regional
Medical Center, i' here he got personal experience as a patient. ,

Time to cure An


Americans are famous for
rallying to great causes. When
natural disasters strike, the
nation's citizens never hesitate
to reach out to those who are
suffering. When challenges to
our national security occur, the
hands of volunteers rise instant-
ly. Major strides in medical sci-
ence have become possible
through the fund-raising efforts
of those who cared enough to
get involved.
Today, there is a disease that,
if not treated and cured, could
become fatal to millions of
American small businesses and
the jobs they create. It hasn't
attracted the public attention
that human diseases garner, but
the potential for spreading like
a plague exists. In fact, it has
already taken root within our
legal system and is growing at a
phenomenal rate.
Spreading its malignant fin-
gers to endanger the nation's
free enterprise sector is a dead-
ly practice of lawsuit abuse that
today costs Americans more
than $200 billion dollars a year


- the equivalent of a
5 percent tax on
wages. While some
claims are legitimate,
a large percentage of
lawsuits are com-
pletely without merit.
But even when cases
are frivolous, busi-
nesses have no
choice but to dig
deep to defend them-
selves, spending
hard-earned dollars
that should be allo-
cated to growing
their businesses and
adding employees.

ons cast- $5,000. Considering .that the
dividuals average small-business owner's
baseless salary is less than $50,000 a
innocent year, it should be easy to under-
s of our stand why the economic' pres-
be held sures to settle are enormous. In


disease
fact, small-business owners say
being sued is one of the most
threatening experiences they
encounter especially for the
smallest firms that could be put
out of business by one frivolous
lawsuit.
Liability reform is gaining
momentum. States across the
nation have recognized the need
for change and have taken steps
to limit frivolous lawsuits.
Anyone who doubts the need
for lawsuit reform need only
look to the recent attempts by
trial lawyers to threaten legal
action against caring citizens
who rushed to aid Hurricane
Katrina victims. When an insti-
tution of American .society
becomes so diseased that Good
Samaritans are sued when try-
ing to help people, the search
for a cure must begin in earnest.

the National Federation of
Independent Business, the

advocacy group.

Influenza epidemic ,


How to protect body from flu pandemic


It's only a matter of time. A
pandemic, a worldwide influen-
za epidemic, is inevitable,
according to health experts.
Pandemics tend to occur
when disease-causing organ-
isms that typically affect only
animals adapt and can infect
humans then further adapt to
pass easily from human to
human. People have little or no
immunity so the virus can
spread rapidly.
Although experts are con-
cerned about H5N1 virus, a
strain of bird flu garnering
much attention, no one knows
what may occur with this or any
other influenza virus.
The January issue of "Mayo
Clinic Health Letter" recom-
mends how to minimize risk in
the event of a pandemic, mild or
severe.
Be knowledgeable. Look
to reliable sources for informa-
tion such as the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human Services (www.pan-
demicflu.gov); the Centers for
Disease Control
(www.cdc.gov); the World
Health Organization
(www.who.int/en) and Mayo
Clinic (www.mayoclinic.com).
Get the standard flu vac-
cine. It won't protect you from
a pandemic flu virus, but it's a
precaution against simultane-,
ous infections.
* See your doctor within two
days after flu symptoms begin.
If you have a cough, sore throat,
muscle aches or fever of 101
degrees or more, your doctor
may be able to prescribe an,
antiviral drug.
Frequently wash hands or
use alcohol-based hand sanitiz-
ers. Either helps prevent the
spread of infections.


Stay healthy. A healthy
body means a strong immune
system. Eat a healthy diet, get
adequate sleep and exercise.
M Consider wearing a face
mask in public. It may prevent
you from inhaling airborne par-
ticles from an infected person's
coughs or sneezes.
Be cautious with social
contact. If you are sick, avoid
public places where you are
likely to infect others. If you're
not sick, avoid handshakes or
close contact with those who
are.
Think carefully about trav-
el. Influenza viruses spread eas-
ily when people are confined to
small spaces such as an air-
plane, train or bus.
Don't eat undercooked
poultry or raw eggs.
Thoroughly cooking kills bacte-
ria and viruses.
Avoid contact with birds
and bird droppings in areas
where bird flu outbreaks are
occurring. It's not the time to
feed the ducks at the park.
. U Use good respiratory ,eti-
quette. Cough or sneeze into a
facial tissue and wash your
hands often.

Recognize retinal
problems and seek
immediate care
If you experience sudden
vision changes many floaters
or specks, flashing '.lights,
blurred or wavy vision, a dark
spot in the middle of your
vision, or a sudden vision loss -
seek emergency medical care.
The symptoms could indicate
a potentially serious retinal dis-
order. Seeking immediate care
could save your vision, accord-
ing to the January issue of


"Mayo Clinic Health Letter."
Symptoms could indicate:
Age-related macular
degeneration This chronic dis-
ease occurs when macular tis-
sue deteriorates with age. The
result can be blurred central
vision and possibly a blind spot
in your central field of view.
Retinal detachment -
Although painless, signs of reti-
nal detachment include sudden
flashes of light followed by
what appears to be spots,
specks, hair or strings also
called floaters.
Diabetic retinopathy This
serious complication of dia-
betes is marked by swelling of
the retina and damage to the
retinal blood vessels. Diabetic
retinopathy can cause sudden
vision loss, retinal tears or
detachment.
Retinal artery occlusion -.
Blockage of an artery serving
the retina may occur due to an
underlying condition, such as
high blood pressure, atheroscle-'
rosis or the autoimmune disor-
der giant cell arteritis. Lost
vision results, as retinal tissue
dies in the area served by the
blocked artery.
If you suspect a retinal prob-
lem, contact your eye care
provider. immediately. Time
wasted could be vision lost.

Strong reasons to
start strength training
Strength training i hethei
\ou use% \eight training
machines. elastic resistance
bands. dumbbells, barbell s or
simpl\ the \%eight of \our bod\
- offers man\ health benefits.
The JanuarN issue of "MNjyo
Clinic Health letter" lists rea-
songs hr it's good to add
strength training to your e\er-


cise regimen. Benefits include:
Increasing bone density:
This reduces the risk and
impact of osteoporosis.
Reducing the risk of
falling: Strength training con-
tributes to better balance, coor-
dination and agility.
Maintaining a healthy
weight: Pound for pound, mus-
cle bums three times more calo-
ries than fat. Increasing muscle
mass enables your body to burn
calories more quickly and effi-
ciently.
Alleviating chronic back
pain: People .often experience
less pain after strengthening
their back and jbdoiminal mus-
cles.
Making everyday tasks
easier: Housew ork, mowing the
lawn or carrying groceries takes
less effort. Strong muscles,
mean you're less likely to injure
muscles, tendons or ligaments.1
Talk to your doctor' about
appropriate strengthening exer-
cises. especially if you have
osteoporosis.

Get on the right
track with TOPS
Marilyn Brazeau hopes her
dedication to eating right and
exercise results in long term
health both in the .physical
and mental realms.
The Strathclair, Manitoba,
Canada native joined a weight-
loss support group and lost a
total of 111.25 pounds. .
Brazeau is on the right track,
according to a study published
in January in the "Annals of
Internal Medicine." The study
said that healthy people who
exercise regularly have a 20 to,
40 percent lower risk for dis-
eases of the brain.
"I came to a point where I
wanted to be as fit as I could
possibly be," Brazeau said. "I
wanted muscle instead of fat -
I wanted to be slim arrd lean."
Dr. Wayne McCormick, a
University of Washington geri-
atrician and member of the
study says that even a small
amount of "light activity,"
regardless of the type, was ben-


eficial. "The surprising finding
for us was that it actually didn't
take much to have this effect,"
McCormick said.
Brazeau joined Take Off
Pounds Sensibly and learned
how to eat sensibly and move
more. "The games and contests
are fun, the weight dropped
off," she said. She has strug-
gled, but she hung in there and
believed in herself.
Brazeau walks one-half hbur
to an hour every day and
strength trains on alternate
days. "This is what I require of
myself," she said. "The TOPS
program is my accountability."
TOPS Club Inc., is a power-
ful nonprofit, noncommercial
weight-loss support organiza-
tion with thousands of associat-
ed chapters in the United States
and Canada. Members (more
than 200,000 worldwide) learn
about nutrition, portion control,
food planning, exercise and
more in weekly meetings.
Weekly weigh-ins, group feed-
back and support help members
achieve their goals. TOPS Club
Inc., is the original weight loss

Taking


Seeking 2006 AARP
The deadline for nominating any busi-
ness for AARP Best Employers for workers
50 and older is fast approaching.
Employers that offer workplace practices
and policies that greatly benefit these work-
ers are encouraged to apply. Now entering
its sixth year, the Best Employers search
honored 50 employers last year, including
Florida winners Brevard Public Schools in
Viera and Lee Memorial Health System in
Fort Myers.
AARP's landmark report, "The Business
Case for Workers Age 50 and older," found
that companies' investments in experienced
workers translate into a tremendous plus for
their businesses. As the oldest of the
boomers turn 60 in 2006, attracting and
retaining skilled workers 'will become
increasingly critical for employers who
seek to. retain a competitive edge.
Especially appealing to 50 and older
workers are training and learning opportu-
nities, flexible work schedules and continu-
ing opportunities for advancement.
"It is imperative for Florida employers to
retain 50 and older workers if they wish to
be competitive," said AARP Florida State
Director Bentley Lipscomb. "It will not be
long before the baby boomers start to retire.
When companies maintain strong and posi-
tive relationships with older workers, they

to increase access to legal
advice, and referrals for under-
served Florida seniors.'
"The Senior Legal Helpline
is a great resource for Florida's
older adults who have questions
about legal issues," said
Secretary Green. "This
helpline will be a convenient
way for seniors to get connect-
ed to information, no matter
where they live in the state."
"Our experience in running
the Legal Aid Line in a five-
county area gives us valuable,
expertise in developing a
statewide legal helpline," said
Dick Woltmann,' executive
director of Bay Area Legal
Services. "'This grant- will
allow us to collaborate % nth the
many organizations statewide
that provide legal information


and assistance." ,
The Senior Legal Helpline
(888-895-7873) will enhance
existing legal services programs
provided through the federal
Older Americans Act.
Currently, civil legal assistance
for the elderly available through
: these programs varies through-
out the state. The Senior Legal
Helpline will help identify and
fill gaps in legal services for
seniors and provide high quali-
ty services by referring callers
to appropriate legal resources.
The federal grant will allow
for the development of a toll-
free telephone line and referral
service to address legal ques-
tions regarding housing, health
care, family law, employment
advance directives and many
other issues. Implementation of
this pilot project will continue
during the next two years.

OLL BOUT RSaLTM

SfLc,'ake Placid, Inc.


Some of the area's leading
Montessori schools were hon-
ored at a reception at the United
Nations for their participation
in the Montessori initiative, a
program of the UN Department
of Public Information non-gov-
ernmental organization.
Local school honored was
Montessori Children's School
of Lake Placid.
In presenting the awards, the
Montessori Initiative Vice
Chair Richard Ungerer stated,
"The schools were being hon-
ored for "balancing rigorous
academics with community
service in the spirit of both
Montessori and the United
Nations "Peace Through
Education program."
The schools and their respec-
tive heads received special
recognition for their outstand-

peace studies into their curricu-
la and for reaching beyond the
classroom walls to involve stu-
dents in programs that help
them understand, firsthand, the
needs of people from 'diverse
cultures worldwide. This was
accomplished by joining with
Kids Can Free the Children a
youth-driven children's rights
organization and its founder,
Nobel Peace Prize nominee
Craig Kellberger to help raise
funds fo build Montessori
schools in developing countries
and provide scholarships for
teacher education under a
uniquely Montessori program.
The schools, the first of which
will be in Kenya, Uganda and
the Dominican Republic will
have' satellite provided Internet
access so that the students in
those countries can develop
correspondence relationships
with the students at the area
schools, providing them the
ability to learn from one anoth-
er.
When Judith Cunningham,
area chair of the Montessori ini-
tiative received the recognition
on behalf of the schools, she
remarked. "Montessori is rec-
ognized for our famous gradu-
ates that range from the
founders of Google and
,Amazon.com, to the youngest
Rhodes Scholar and Nobel
Prize nominee. We are also
known for our prominent
Montessori parents such as
Michael Douglas and Maya


Angelou. But Montessori is not
for the most famed, nor is it for
the most brilliant. It is for every
child and it is for every parent."
Paraphrasing Dr. Maria
Montessori, she told the audi-
ence, "Look not to me, but to
the children. Throughout the
world, teachers are sharing
ideas with the children, but it is
the children that bring
Montessori to life. I accept this
honor on. behalf of the chil-
dren."
Montessori, the founder of
the Montessori Movement, was
a Nobel Peace Prize nominee,
an educator and one of Italy's
first female physicians.
The schools were honored as
part of celebrations at the
United Nations in recognition
of the forthcoming 100th
anniversary of Montessori edu-
cation, the child-centered learn-
ing approach founded by
Montessori. Although often
thought of as education for
early childhood, Montessori is
for children and youth of, all
ages, infant through adolescent
and there are a growing number
of Montessori secondary
schools, both public and pri-
vate, throughout the world.
Montessori is the fastest grow-
ing educational approach in
North America. Approximately
1,000,000 families have their
children in one of the approxi-
mately 5,000 Montessori
schools in North America (in
United States there is 4,400).

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Believing

you can
As I made my way down
the huge boulder on my
backside, I fleetingly won-
dered how I'd get back up
on the return trip. But, if I
was going to keep up with
the other hikers, I had to fol-
low their lead and deal with
the return trip later.
This hike had tested my
endurance and abilities. It
wasn't till later that I real-
ized how worry would have
sapped my energy and
brought on fatigue. Instead,
I'd had unexpected energy.
Somewhere in the mix of
keeping my eye on the goal
and.not resisting a helping
hand when offered, I'd man-
aged to complete the hike.
Later that evening, I enjoyed
the feeling of accomplish-
ment and knowing that my
fellow hikers had believed in
me. I felt invigorated. Their
belief had kept me from
doubting myself.,
We recently enjoyed the
movie, "The Lion, the
Witch, and the Wardrobe"
from the Chronicles of
Narnia. What a fascinating
story.
In one scene, the battle of
all battles was ahead. Peter
didn't see himself as the
warrior he should be to lead
such a vast army against
what seemed an invincible
foe. But, when Edmond
reminded his doubting broth-
er that Aslan, the Lion, and
supreme ruler over Narnia,
believed in him, Peter's per-
spective of himself changed;
and, consequently, his per-
ception of the enemy. Asldn
believed he could and that
gave Peter courage. .
It reminds me of .the story
of Gideon that I've come to
love; not only because of
God's incredible intervention
to provide victory. But,
because of the way God saw
and referred to Gideon.
Listen to the way his angel
greeted Gideon: "The Lord
is with you, mighty warrior."
(Judges 6: 12b, NIV)
Gideon didn't fall down .
on his face and worship and
praise God for being called a
mighty warrior. Rather he
asked practical questions; he
referred to himself as the
least; and asked for a sign.
God didn't chastise him
for this. Rather he accommo-
dated Gideon and filled him
with the confidence of the
Lord. God believed in
Gideon and empowered him
to trust. As a result, a mighty
army was defeated with only
a few hundred men.
It's important that we
humbly believe that we are
who God says that we are.
Not for our own aggrandize-
ment; but, for the glory of
the Lord and how he wants
to work through us. When
the impossible assails,
remember he is the God of
the impossible.
"Being confident of this,
that he who began a good
work in you will carry it on
to completion until the day
of Christ Jesus." (Philippians
1: 6, NIV)
Believe you can. Selah.

Discovering the other side of oneself


n Fitness. Ever try it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
Twenty-five years of marriage does
not compatible make. Michael and Sally
are proof of that. At least that's what
appearances would have indicated.
In fact, Sally is convinced that had
they entered their personal data into a
computer, not only would they have not
come up with a match, there would have
been a huge warning: "Stay away! Run!
Not compatible on any level."
Sally had known a bitter and hurtful
divorce in her life. When she met
Michael, he was going through the same.
She saw the pain mirrored in his eyes
and it was as if she could see deep into
his soul.


They struck up a
friendship. Though
different in -personali-
ty, they discovered
they had a strong com-
mon thread that wound
through their lives.
They both loved God
and wanted to please
him. And, on that


graphic by: FRED KOEHLER/NEWS SUN


foundation, they married.
However, though their foundation was
strong, their "building materials" were
lacking. Without acceptance and the
willingness to adapt to their differences,
their structure weakened.
His outgoing, vivacious personality
ran circles around her quiet, reserved
manner. Add to that her severe, crippling
rheumatoid arthritis and extraordinary
medical bills during 20 of their 25 years
and you have a disaster in the making.
Slowly, the thread of commitment
unraveled one stressful incident, one
broken promise and one indiscretion at a
time.
Sally's love and respect for Michael
turned to hate and disrespect. Yet, she
remained faithful for three years of
unimaginable confusion, hurt and rejec-
tion. While Michael tried to justify his
actions, Sally prayed and waited.
She began to realize the truth of
becoming "one" in marriage gradual-


ly seeing the struggles
of her husband and her
reactions in a different
light. They talked and
fought. But, through it
all, they had this defi-
nite, indefinable tug to
want to please God
even though their
actions screamed oth-


erwise.
Through much prayer, counseling and
a recommitment to Christ on both of
their parts, these two are seeing their
'incompatible" personalities in a new
light.
"It's the strangest thing," Sally said as
she realizes the give and take of. mar-
riage. "When we're apart, we miss each
other so much. That part of 'us' that is
the other one. Michael is my outgoing,
competitive, vivacious part. I'm his sta-
ble, conservative, steadfast part."
Together they make 'one' that is
unique. They've learned not to try to
change each other, but to accept one
another and pray letting God do the
transforming work in each of them and
in their, marriage.
That thread of faith and devotion to
God has become an unyielding rope
holding them together. It's helping them
discover the other side of themselves -
each other.


Warm-up time
It may take years of marriage to,
realize that even if you've mellowed
some, you're still the distinct person-
alities that drew \ou to one another.
Let God refine those personalities to
serve each other.

Sit-up and take notice
Is running off to do something by
yourself so important that you'd miss
seeing the hurt in her eves? Why not
harness that energy and creatively
find something you can enjoy doing
together just this once. It ina\ set a
precedent that )ou'U want to repeat.

Curl-up together
Surprise him with a spontaneous
idea that w ill belie your reserved per-
sonality. Toss the overnight bag in the
car ahead of time and head out
together for some unknown destina-
tion.

Boots Randolph performing


SFCC closes
Artist Series
Saturday
AVON PARK Legendary
saxophone player, Boots-
Randolph, brings to a close the
2005-06 South Florida
Community College Artist
Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday
when he performs live on stage
at the SFCC Auditorium,
Highlands Campus.
When Boots, whose real
name is Homer 'Louis
Randolph, starts tootin' his
horn, he does more than just
play the saxophone. He more
than just pops out musical
notes. His saxophone sounds
like it can sing and can talk.
He has been bringing audi-
ences to their feet ever since the
early 1960s, when his signature
airways. It turned the young
musician into an instant celebri-
ty.
In his early years, Randolph
played several instruments, bitt
settled on the sax at age 16. In
1946, after being discharged
from the Army, he put his
"chops" to work professionally.
However, it wasn't until 1961
that he moved to Music City on
the heels of his highly success-
ful trademark tune.
"That song ('Yakety Sax') is
what took me out of the hills of
Kentucky and put me in the
hills of Tennessee," Randolph
likes to say.

Boots Randolph closes the Artist Series in Avon Park with his
singing saxophone.


Almost immediately, he
became a studio musician and
soon played saxophone on
recording sessions for numer-
-ous stars. He was the first ever
to play sax on recordings with


Elvis Presley, and the only one
to ever play solo with him, in
addition to recording on the
soundtracks for eight of his
movies.
Randolph played on such


diverse recordings as Roy
Orbison's "Pretty Woman," Al
Hirt's "Java," REO
Speedwagon's "Little Queenie"
and Brenda, Lee's "Rockin,
Around The Christmas Tree."
In fact, he has a 30-year history
of playing on records with her.
An array of other artists who
have added the "Yakety Sax"
touch to their recordings,
include Chet Atkins, Buddy
Holly, Floyd Cramer, Alabama,
Johnny Cash, Richie Cole, Pete
Fountain, Tommy Newsom,
and Doc Severinsen.
Randolph's unique style of sax,
coupled with his popularity on
Music City sessions in the
1960s, automatically made
Randolph a major player in cre-
ating the now-famous
"Nashville Sound" and helped
transform Nashville into the
Country Music Capital of the
World.
This performance is, being
co-sponsored by Dr. and Mrs.
Epstus S. Nelson and by Dr.
Audwin Nelson.
For tickets, contact the SFCC
Box Office, weekdays, from

It was greatly anticipated, an ored fish happily

dark green slime hung in watery long fish life? The sad h
ribbons from the lower edge of answer is probably


the fountain. Grandpa and
Grandma always let us feed the
fish, which came right up to the
surface like trained dogs. It was
all a part of the wonder of stay-
ing with our Florida grandpar-
ents and, of course, sooner or
later, one of us would.get-too
careless around the pond and
fall in. Getting the slime
washed off wasn't nearly -as
much fun.
Seeing the pond as an adult,
with the same type of beautiful-
ly colored fish, I realized that it
wasn't big by any means. It was

however, for we have a number

the delights of a fish pond are in
your budget and your children
and grandchildren's future.

Strawberries easy to grow,

juicy and delicious


Strawberries are sweet, juicy
and delicious, and are one of
the easiest fruits to grow.
Always plant strawberries in
an area where they will get at
least eight hours of sunlight.
Never plant strawberries where
eggplant, peppers, potatoes or
tomatoes were grown the previ-
ous year. This will cause verti-
cillium rot.
Check that plants are certi-
fied disease free. Always chose
plants that have light roots,
large crowns and green leaves
free of blight or brown patches.
Keep plants moist before plant-
ing.
Spread roots out in fan-
shape; do not double or crum-
ple up. Set them at correct
depth. Do not cover crown, and
do not leave tops or roots
-exposed. Pack the soil around
the roots firmly, then sprinkle
with water. Overhead sprin-
kling keeps the tops froni dry-
ing out until the roots are estab-
lished.

County Master keep the
Gardeners fruit off.. the
Gardeners ground. If
you have
limited space there are many
types of containers and media
to grow strawberries. To pre-
pare raised beds for strawber-
ries, on a 100 square foot area,
broadcast about two and one-
half pound of fertilizer such as
6-8-8, and work it well into the
soil. Mound the beds two foot
wide by four to six inches high,
be sure to make the center a lit-
tle higher to help drainage.
Next apply the same amount of
fertilizer in a narrow band
down the center of the bed four'
to six inches deep. After the bed
is properly formed-and-fertil-
ized, apply plenty, of water to
help pack the bed and keep it
moist.
Each plant will send out
stdlens that are also called run-
ners.
Each runner grows along the
ground producing buds that
develop into new plants that
send out roots into the soil.
The most common insect
pest affecting strawberries are:
pameras, flower trips, spider
mites, white grubs, cutworms,
slugs and snails. Diseases
Leafspots, stem spotting, plant
blight, and fruit rots are often
encountered.
Anthracnose is one of the
worst disease in Florida gar-
dens. Nets may be placed over
garden to prevent birds from
pecking the fruit.

"I hope to be playing with
this group for quite awhile
while I still can," Smith said.
"I've really enjoyed watching
their progress but I initially
only committed to directing for


two years."
He began playing with the
band nine years ago and he has
served as conductor for the past
seven.
Having a bachelors degree in
music education, a master of


arts in music education, and an
educational specialist degree in
school administration at Central
Michigan University, as well as
advanced study in music at
Michigan State University,
Smith's career has included


working as a public school band
and orchestra director for 16
years, and serving as a high
school principal for 15, in
Michigan.
Under his guidance, the band
has experienced tremendous


growth. Long time band mem-
ber Ralph Sylvester said of
Smith, "He's brought up. the
standards and the class of music
*we play. Everybody has
responded to him and it has
been a great experience for us."

Laboratory helps in restoration-research


* Second in a three-part series
By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent '
or any group who would
enjoy seeing a large vari-
ety of wildlife in just
three hours along the
Kissimmee River, an eco-tour
at Riverwoods Field
Laboratory just east of Lorida
offers the opportunity to
explore the restored area and
learn what is happening there.
But wait! People cannot
walk into Riverwoods and ask
for a boat ride, because it is not
a tourist attraction. It is a
world-renowned education and
research center that is now
offering eco-tours for visitors
who want to experience the
river in its historic beauty.
"Riverwoods is not open to
the public, but any group can
request a tour," Director Loisa
Kerwin said. "We can take up
to 20 visitors on the pontoon
boat, and we have a very
knowledgeable captain to con-
duct the tours."
The facility has a 30-foot
pontoon boat, the "Kissimmee
Explorer," which is used to
explore the Kissimmee River
with local, national and inter-
national adult groups and envi-
ronmental professionals.
In addition, the pontoon boat
and an airboat are used to
instruct students and educators
in field methods for water
quality monitoring, aquatic
plant identification and inverte-
brate sampling.
The facility also maintains a
fleet of 10 canoes that provide
a slow, quiet way for students
and visitors to see the restored
ecosystem up close.

in the world, impacting more
than 100,000 acres of wetlands
and floodplain.
The methods for setting
goals and measuring results
had to be developed before
restoration began. The physi-
cal changes to the system were
tested and observed on a small
scale before full-scale changes
were made. Constant monitor-
ing of the environment's
responses to the changes are
on-going.
Riverwoods Field
Laboratory serves as the cen-
tral staging area for research
and monitoring of the
Kissimmee River Restoration
Project. Riverwoods coordi-
nates the activities of research
scientists, ecologists and tech-
nicians from many agencies
and institutions, including uni-
versities. It also offers educa-
tional programs for students,
teachers, environmental profes-
sionals and adults.
Scientists and ecologists
from around the nation and the
world visit here to study and
observe the achievements of
the restoration.
Its modest appearance gives
little indication of the global
importance of the work being
done there. Nestled in a grove
of trees just off U.S. 98, the
cluster of small buildings is
located on a historic run of the
Kissimmee River,
"Riverwoods is on a 15-acre
parcel below the 100-year
flood line, so the houses
already on the property did not
have to be demolished.
Fortunately, South Florida
Water Management District
personnel realized these build-
ings were too nice to tear down
and decided they would make a
good base of operations for
field work," Kerwin said.
Kerwin further explains that
Riverwoods was a little neigh- ,
borhood that was part of the
land acquisition being done in
the early '90s by Southwest
Florida Water Management
District. All buildings on land
below the five-year flood line
had to be demolished before
the project began, but those
below the 100-year flood line


could remain with the under-
standing that naiurja flooding
could occur during extremely
rainy periods.


Established in 1995,
Riverwoods is.jointly managed
by the South Florida Water
Management District and
Florida Atlantic University's
Center for Environmental
Studies. Project scientists and
field personnel are constantly
coming and going to conduct
studies, monitor results, assist
with teaching and take study
groups and visitors for tours of
the river and its restored flood-
plain.
Loisa Kerwin came to
Riverwoods from FAU's
Center for Environmental


Studies and became director of
the laboratory in 2000. She
has a master's degree in geolo-
gy and specializes in environ-
mental science and education.
Working with scientists and
project experts, Kerwin devel-
ops educational programs for
all levels of learners.
Workshops and field trips are
conducted at the Riverwood
facility, and offer an inter-dis-
ciplinary approach to restora-
tion ecology.
"Most of our workshops are
overnight programs, because
many. people come from out-


side the area and-there is just
too much to cover if people
have to drive for several
hours," Kerwin said. "With
local groups, it is OK to come
for one day."
There is a conference facility
with a conference room for
about 25 people. The building
has three bedrooms, living -
room and family room, full
kitchen and three bathrooms to
accommodate 16 individuals.
Another building for overflow'
can sleep up to four guests.
Some sessions run for several
days, depending upon the

"I do interpretive field trips

Loisa Kerwin's work in the
field is mostly with graduate
students. CES manages a
Student Research Program at
Riverwoods that offers quali-

opportunity to gain research

Political rival saves Senate candidate's life


It's a mixed bag L
today just sever- LAUR
al things that have
hit my radar in the Laur
political realm. I
don't promise any
great revelations
on this page today, just my
slightly warped view of what is
going on in the country.
One of those political hot
topics currently is the whole
controversy on the United Arab
Emirates being poised to take
over a portion of operations of
certain U.S. ports. I haven't dis-
cussed this a lot in part because
when I hear ports I tend to think
along the lines of USB, serial,
or PS/2. (Those are computer
ports for those who just went
"huh?" Yes, I am a geek).
The problem I have with
sorting out the whole port story
is that there is a lot of informa-
tion being 'thrown out there.
Some of it is disturbing, some
of it is contradictory, and all of
it borders on confusion.
The UAE are our allies, we
are told, yet we are also told
that they refuse to recognize
Israel and may have funneled


City needs shoe

Editor:
We need a shoe repair shop

Who really lost

New Orleans?
Editor.
With all the finger pointing
and investigations trying to
siow that President Bush's
Administration was solely
responsible for the loss of life
and the New Orleans flooding,
the Democrats are trying to
relieve Democrats Gov. Blanco
Mayor Nagin and the extreme
enviros from blame. They have
overlooked some important
facts.
'A 'U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers project designed to
prevent a Category 5 hurricane
storm surge from filling. Lake
Pontchartrain and flooding
New Orleans was blocked in
1997 by the environmentalist
group, Save Our Wetlands
(SOWL), using a lawsuit
against the Corps.based on the
National Environmental
Protection Act (NEPA) to halt
the Lake Pontchartrain
Hurricane Protection Project.
SOWL's argument against
project claimed the Corps'
environmental impact state-
ment was inadequate. U.S.
District Judge Charles
Schwartz Jr. agreed, issuing an
injunction prohibiting the proj-
ect. Schwartz also ruled that
associated flood prevention
plans in Chalmette and New
Orleans East must be stopped.
U.S. Attorney for the Corps
argued the project should be
exempt from environmental
, standards because it was "nec-
essary to protect the citizens of
New Orleans from a hurri-
cane."
The project would have built
flood gates to block storm
surges from moving into Lake
Pontchartrain from the Gulf of
Mexico, and also would have
built additional levees in flood-
prone areas. It was planned in
the aftermath of Hurricane
Betsy in 1964 and authorized
as part of the Flood Control
Act.
Johannes Westerink, a pro-
fessor and hurricane storm
surge specialist at Notre Dame,

money for' the
Sept. 11 plot. With
allies like this, who
needs enemies?
I am not for


painting all Arabs
with a broad brush.
But I think that we need to
reconsider rewarding someone
who has proven to be willing to-
work against us with access to
our ports.
If you want to be concerned
about our ports, ponder this
sobering thought: According to
what I have heard, only 5 per-
cent of what comes into our
country via our ports is inspect-
ed. Even assuming that the per-
centage is really twice that, the
upshot is that there is a lot 6f.
stuff being moved through our
ports that aren't getting looked
at very closely. Maybe our
political leaders could quit try-
ing to score political points off
each other and. actually 'do
something about thi..? "
Now let's jump from the hot
and confusing to something that
would have made a great short
story, except that it actually
happened.


Maryland State Senator John
Giannetti was recently waiting
for a takeout order at a restau-
rant when he noticed another
man choking. Giannetti rushed
over to him and preformed the
Heimlich maneuver, saving the
man's life.
The man he saved wasn't just
anyone he was Jim
Rosapepe, who just happens to
be challenging Giannetti in the
Democratic primary for his
state Senate seat. Rosapepe
thanked his rival for saving his
life.
You have to wonder how the
rest of the campaign will play
out. How do you try to destroy
the man who saved your life?
Senate President Thomas V.
Mike Miller expressed the hope
that the campaign would be
more uplifting as a result of this
incident.
My thinking is if it takes one
candidate saving the life of the.
other to make a campaign
Uplifting we aren't gonna see a
lot of uplifting campaigns in the
near future.
My last story falls under the
category of "unconfirmed


report."
When I tuned in to The Barry
Foster Show this morning,
Barry said he had heard a rumor
about the revamping of the $10
bill. Part of the revamping,
besides making it look funny as
they have with the $20 and $50
bills (the first time I actually got
one of the new 20s I thought
someone was trying to give me
fake money) the rumor states
that the motto, "In God We
Trust" has been replaced by
"We The People."
I'm not saying this is true. In
fact, I kind of doubt it, since I
cannot confirm it independent-
ly. But given the concerted
efforts to remove God from the
public view, maybe it's only a
matter of time before it hap-
pens.
Or perhaps it is time, as one
of Barry's callers suggested, to
change the motto anyway, from
"In God We Trust" to "God
Help Us."

believes the 1977 project
would have stopped the mean
water level in Lake
Pontchartrain from rising. "If
you had the gates there from
the canceled project, you would
stop that water from being
pushed into Lake
Pontchartrain," he said.
Former Rep. Bob Livingston
(R.-La.) blames environmental-
ist groups for consistently
thwarting disaster prevention
plans in the New Orleans area.
They have attacked the Corps
at every turn, and have system-
atically tried to undermine their
mission, he said. "They have
brought many lawsuits over the
years, caused many deaths and
much property .damage. They
have, threatened the survival
and livelihood of millions of
people."
At the trial,. SOWL's attor-
ney's mental and political pres-
sure caused him to cry inside
the judge's chamber. It was
because of this, that Judge
Charles Schwartz Jr. issued an
injunction against the United
States Army Corps of
Engineers vicinity hurricane
barrier and levees. The enviros
and U.S. District Judge Charles
Schwartz are the reason the
National Bayou Savage Refuge
Center, the largest urban
wildlife refuge in the world,
exists today. And also the rea-
son many lives were lost and


why New Orleans is part of the
Gulf of Mexico today.
All of this is in keeping with
the Democrat enviros ideology
that bears, owls, frogs and
worms are more important than
people. New Orleans is a prime
example of the result of the
Democrat's Enviros work
against people.

Americans must

stay the course
Editor:
Today's paper, March 1,
should be renamed Bush bash-
ing with the exception of Dean
Johnson's letter. The left lean-
ing liberals were in full cry.
Jewett, Streeter, Oleesky and
McLaughin criticize but offer'
no alternatives. Come on, criti-
cize all you want but offer an
alternative.
It seems very odd to methat
Bush was re-elected with an
overwhelming majority. You
left leaning liberals and democ-
rats can't seem to understand
you lost the last election. You
have no alternative except to
criticize. Do you wish for Gore,
Clinton and Kerry? Come on
get real. Maybe Jimmy Carter
should return.
Do I agree with everything
Bush does? Absolutely not,

How many of you liberals
are aware of the Chinese run-
ning several west coast ports?
Even your poster girl,

Learning all about the new car


I pulled up to
the gas pump this
morning, on the
wrong side, again!
You'd think after


SHEILA
Sheila E


owning this car for
three years I'd remember
what side the tank is on.
It seems that just when I
get used to one, I get another.
Suddenly I have to adjust my
thinking and my reflexes to
accommodate the characteris-
tics of the new vehicle. The
gas tank is on the other side
now, and the wipers are over
here, not there. The ,emer-
gency brake release is where
the trunk release was on my
old car, and frankly I haven't
been able to figure out yet
what RPMX1000 on one of
the dashboard gauges ig all
about.
I had to pull away, make an
about face, and return to the
pump only to find someone
else had slipped into my slot
during my absence, and was
now busily ignoring me while
he -filled his tank. All the
other pumps were taken so I
was faced with the question
of whether I should leave the
.car running, while waiting for
my turn and waste gas, or
turn it off and start up again
later, thereby using more
energy from the car battery,
which I believe is coming, to
the end of its inglorious life.
The consensus of opinion
was that when gas prices
escalated folks would .stop
driving so much, but this does


$A not seem to be the
SAYS case. for people
- who crowd the gas
.Ryan stations in my
neighborhood in
order to fill the
humongous tanks on their
shiny, new, oversized SUVs.
My friend, Alabama Betty,
accompanied me on the
maiden voyage of my new
car several years ago. I call
her Alabama Betty because
her name is Betty and she
was bom and raised in
Alabama. She still has a very
strong accent, and uses many
colloquialisms in her conver-
sations like, "It's. cold as a
well'digger's butt."
Betty and her husband
migrated to Florida for the
benefit of cheaper housing,
but now that she's a widow I
have a strong feeling she'll be
returning to the place of her
birth. But, I digress ... Betty
sighed loudly when I attempt-
ed to change gears and the
windshield wipers came on
full blast, but when I popped
the trunk to get her groceries
out, and the hood went up,
she actually jumped. As we
said our goodbyes, she said
next time she'd really like to
take her car.
It seems to me it would be
a great ,improvement if auto
manufacturers designed all
cars to have the gas tanks on
the same side, and the levers.
and buttons all in the same
place. Of course, we could go


one step further and have all
vehicles designed to be the
same height. Then I wouldn't
be in suspense about whether
the pick up truck in front of
me was dragging its heels or
if there was another vehicle
in front of him that was going
so dam slow. I wouldn't have
to guess what was going on in
front of the 18 wheelers I
seem to get in back of all the
time, either.
By the way, snuggling up
to a large truck's rear end is a
dangerous thing to do. For
one thing, you can't see the
traffic lights ahead, and since
most trucks don't stop at the
caution signal you're apt to
go through a light in their
wake that has just changed to
red. Cops love that; it gives
them a chance to make their
ticket quota for the day.
By the way, take a tip from
an expert in the field of lock-
ing yourself out of the car.
Keep a spare key taped to the
back of your tag, 'and keep, a
penny in your pocket to use
on the screws.
Eventually I'll get used to
this car, and one daI\ ma\
even be adientureesome
enough to learn, to use the
remote control that came with
it, but in the meantime, I must
remember to ask my mechan-
ic what RPMX1000 means."

"The Real World of Fiji"

Tuesday, March 7, 2006


Rick Howard


"The Real World of Fiji"


- Once known as the terrible cannibal islands to
sailors the world over, the Fiji Islands are now'con-
sidered to be the friendliest islands in the Pacific. Visit the two
large islands of Vitu Levu and Vanua Levu. Tribal customs still
control government, life style, and behavior in Fiji more than any
other island nation. Rick first visited Fiji twenty years ago with the
first American scuba diving group ever to be invited to the
island of Waya. The divers enjoyed the spectacular under sea
coral reefs and experienced
the almost unchanged primi-
tive island life of Waya. Return
with Rick to visit Waya and
explore the rest of this amaz-
ing nation.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
March 6, 2001: Allison
Kelly struck out 10 and
allowed just five hits and
Ashley Belcher drove in the
game-winning run in the
bottom of the eighth inning
as the Avon Park Lady
Devils edged Frostproof 2-
1 for a key district win.

25 Years Ago
March 5 and 6, 1981: It
was a big two days for
Avon Park basketball. On
March 5, the Lady Red
*Devils hammered Havana
in the Class 2A state semi-
final game, getting 16
points from Annette Blake
and a double-double (14
points, 15 rebounds) from
Kathy Wiggins in a 61-32
win. The next night, Alvin
Conner poured in a sea-
son-high 43 points to lead
the top-ranked boys team
to an 87-78 win over
Pahokee to clinch a trip to
the state final four.

Blue Streaks get sloppy win in Sarasota

Answer 8-run Booker inning with 9-run outburst


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SARASOTA The Sebring
Blue Streaks hope to get anoth-
er chance to play at Ed Smith
Stadium sometime in May. .But
if they want to get back to the
site of the state final four,
they're going to have to play a
lot better than they did in Friday
night's sloppy 16-8 win over
District 10-4A rival Sarasota
Booker.
The Streaks allowed the
struggling Tornadoes to score
eight runs in the second inning,
only to answer with nine runs of
their own in their next at-bat to
go ahead to stay in the poorly-
played game at the spring train-
ing home of the ,Cincinnati
Reds.
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
said his team wasn't up for'the
game, which- may have been
due to the fact Booker lost by


10 runs to a Braden River team
that Sebring scored 15 runs on
earlier in the week.
"We weren't very focused
tonight," Rewis said. "When
you're not focused, anybody
can beat you."
After the game, Rewis told
the Streaks he was going to be
Sebring back at Ed Smith
in May, but he
16 would much
Booker rather be on the
field coaching his
team rather than
in the bleachers
as a fan..
"We'd like to think we can do
that," Rewis said when asked
about making it to the final four.
"You never know. We came. real
close with a team that was not
as talented as this team. We're
in a, district with about five
teams than can beat anybody on
a given night, so getting out of


the district will be tough."
After taking a 1-0 lead in the
first on a Chaz Abeln sacrifice
fly, the Streaks had a meltd',v,. n
in the second, making two ke,,
errors to allow the Tornadoes to
pile up eight runs on four hiis,
and phase 'starter Michael
Woods, who was relieved h',
Chris Welborn.
Once Welborn got out of the
second inning after allov ing
two runs he shut do' n
Booker, allowing just two hits
and striking out five over the
next 4'A3 innings to get the w in.
"He did a great job andheld
us in there to give us a chance to
get. a few hits and them to nl.uke
a lot of mistakes," Rewis said of
Welborn.
Those Booker mistakes starn-
ed 'in the top of the third v. hen
an error, a hit batter and Abeln',
bloop single'loaded the bases

Time to move on'


Decision to retire not easy for White
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sp- "s Edu. ~.- -
SEBRING. After nearly 16
years of professional baseball,
over eight of them in the majors,
it all came down- to one sleepless
night in Fort Myers for Sebring's
Gabe White.
His elbow was hurting. His
knee had been swelling every 'M '.
time he ran. He knew he had to r
make a decision


"I tried to go.to sleep," he said.
"I just couldn't shut my mind
down. I just stared at the TV."
That decision became final
Friday morning, when White told
the Minnesota Twins that he was
retiring.
White, who was in camp with
the Twins his seventh different
organization on a minor league
contract, competing for a spot in
the bullpen, said there was "a lot
of talking, a lot of thinking and a
lot of crying" involved in his
decision.

12 Hours of Sebring

Top classes for Race full of contenders


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING March is here
and a young man's thoughts
turn to racing. Here in central
Florida for more than a few, that
means America's oldest and
most prestigious sports car
endurance classic, the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring.
This year will see the return
of a. number of different auto
makers to the Race, as well as
mark both turning points and
new technology for the com-
petitors in the once-around-the-
clock classic.
Ever-present winners Audi
will be back, but with a new
vehicle. Fans will have the
opportunity to see the revolu-
tionary V-12 diesel powered
RIO prototype. Two 650-horse-
power cars will be .-making their
competition debut at Sebring,
which will be a stern test for
their scheduled June appear-
ance at the upcoming Le Mans
24-hour race.
Audi AG has chosen a collec-
tion of factory drivers that rank
among the best in the world for
their entries. They include


ALMS photo
The PI-class Audi (front) and the P2-class Porsche could battle it
out for the overall win in the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 18.


Sebring winners Frank Biela,
Dindo Capello, Tom
Kristensen, Allan McNish,
Emanuele Pirro and Marco
Werner.
Although they are listed
under Audi Sport North
America, manufacturer's offi-
cials have said both Team Joest
and Champion Racing will
work closely on the car's debut
with an All-star line up of driv-
ers.
They won't be the only alter-


native fuel competitor at this
year's Race. Group Bio will
also be fielding a diesel-pow-
ered car. Dl Oils', the UK-based
global producer of biodiesel
from renewable energy crops,
plans'to test the performance of
green diesel fuel by sponsoring
the entry of the biodiesel pow-
ered car at Sebring.
The Dl Lola B2K/10 GBL is
to be powered by a high-per-
formance diesel engine modi-
fied to run on a mix of regular


diesel and biodiesel produced
from vegetable oils. Company
officials say the objective is to
test the performance, fuel effi-
ciency and emissions produced
by different biodiesel blends. '
Piloting the car will be
Finnish rally and road Racer
Harri Toivonen and Brit Adam
Sharpe.
Dyson Racing unveiled their
new car and engine package at
the official American Le Mans
Series Winter Test at Sebring
back in January. The team will
continue to run a -Lola-
AER combination in 2006, but
with two new Lola B06/10
chassis powered by Advance
Engine Research's new 3.6-liter
twin-turbo V8 engines.
"Compared to the old car it
changes directions much better,
it is easier to drive the aerody-
namics are much more benign
and it is not as sensitive to ride
height as the old car," said driv-
er James Weaver, who will
mark 20 years with the Dyson
team when he races here this
year.

RACE
Continued from IE
ing Dyson's dual entries are
Chris Dyson, Butch Leitzinger
Andy Wallace and Guy Smith.
Lola again will be well rep-
resented in the LMPI class at
Sebring with Highcroft Racing
also putting a Lola BO1/60
AER on the track. Formula and
endurance racing champion
Duncan Dayton actually
bought Dyson's former LMP1
entry to contest this year's 12
Hours as well as the entire
ALMS season. He will be
joined by Rick Knoop and the
London-based Scottish Racer
Gregor Fiskin.
Autocon Motorsports will
also try their hand at the 12
Hours with a Lola B01/60
AER. That's another of
Dyson's former works cars.
Michael Lewis, Chris
McMurry and Brian Willman
will be behind the wheel of that
one.
In the LMP2 class, Intersport
racing will be back to defend
their Sebring title with drivers
Jon and Clint Field at the wheel
of the team's Lola B05/40
.along with Liz Halliday.
They will have their hands
full with the Sebring debut of
the bright yellow Penske
Motorsports Porsche RS
Spyder. Global delivery service
giant DHL Global Mail has
teamed up with the two-car
Penske effort, which will be
driven by Porsche veterans
Lucas Luhr, Sascha Maassen of
Germany with Emmanuel
Collard in one car. The other
will be in the hands of Timo
Bernhard, Romain Dumas and
Patrick Long.
That car already has scored
one ALMS win, with Maassen
and Luhr driving the RS
Spyder to a P2 victory in the
season-ending Monterey Sports
Car Championships at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca last
October. With spectacular
times like the ones registered in
the winter test sessions, some
have projected the car could
even score an overall win.
Welter Racing has entered a
four-cylinder Peugeot engine
LMP2 for this year's Race. It is
only the second appearance for
this team at the 12 Hours. In
2002, Welter finished third in
the then-LMP675 class with a
Mazda-powered entry, two
spots ahead of a Peugeot-pow-
ered Welter.car.
The Courage C65 will make
its presence known this year
with several teams opting for
that make as the platform of
choice.
Two-time; Sebring winner
and defending ALMS LMP2
champ Miracle Motorsports
will be back with an AER pow-
erplant on board their bright
red and white entry. Based out
of Winter Haven, they are the
closest thing to a local team on
the track for Highlands County
fans this year.
Team owner John Macaluso
is listed as the primary driver
for the car with two others to be
named later.
Following their win at
Sebring last year, he gave a
lion's share of the credit for the
12-hour trophy to the perform-
ance of his tires.
"They exceeded everyone's
expectations. We even triple-
stinted a pair at one
time," Macaluso said, noting
that added up to 270 miles
across one of road racing's
most grueling tracks.
B-K Motorsports also plans
to bring their Mazda-powered
Courage on the track. Coming'
off last year with eight podium
finishes out of nine Races, the
team is looking to start off this
year's season with a bang.
Former Star Mazda series
pilots James Bach and Guy
Cosmo again will be driving
the car. The pair shared the
ALMS Rookie of the Year
award honors in 2005.

After the fifth inning, Luby's
held a scant 8-7 lead before
breaking loose with five runs in

Entering the bottom of the
last inning, catastrophe
appeared. Three critical Luby
fielding errors aided the
Salesmen's comeback efforts
on their way to a 14-13 victory.
The Salesmen's anemic offense
was led by Syd Collin's three
hits and the extra base hit (dou-
ble) by Dick Harris. No Luby's
stats were available.
At Lake June Field, the
Buttonwood Bay Rebels sur-
prised Miller Central Air with a
23-15 victory. Miller's aided

(5-for-5), Glen Moore and Jim
Strietzel (each 4-for-4). Extra-
base hits were added by Jerry
Mattis (double), Stan Turl (dou-
ble) and triples by Moose
Morrissette, Elwood Black and

Bassmaster Classic was record setter


You missed a great show if you didn't see the
weigh-in of the 2006 Bassmaster Classic held on
Lake Tohopekaliga last weekend. The number of
huge bass caught on Friday, the first day of the
three-day tournament, was really record break-
ing. The top four winners on the first day
brought a total of 104 pounds, 6 ounces to the
scales.
.The first-day leader, Luke Clausen of
Spokane Valley, Wash. had five bass weighing
29 pounds, 6 ounces. Second place went to
Florida resident Preston Clark, who caught 29
pounds, 1 ounce. Clark also had the largest bass
of the day, a real lunker weighing 11 pounds, 10
ounces.
Edwin Evers from Oklahoma was in third
place with 23 pounds, 10 ounces and Kevin
Wirth of Kentucky was fourth with 22 pounds, 5

ounces. All four broke the
13-year-old record for a
five-fish catch of 21 pounds,
8 ounces set by Paul Elias in
1993.
With the final tally on
Sunday, Clausen's catch of
11 pounds, 13 ounces, gave
him a three-day total of 56
pounds, 2 ounces, breaking
the tournament's previous
record of 55 pounds, 10
ounces. He took the Big
Bass award for Sunday plus
$500,000 as winner of the


The unpredictable but always entertaining
Mike laconelli, winner of the 2003 Classic,
threw a fit and used foul language in front of the
spectators when he thought a livewell malfunc-
tion killed one of his fish. His outburst resulted
,in tournament officials disqualifying ,his first
day's catch of 11pounds, 9.ounces. Needless to
say, Mike was also a little upset with their rul-
* ing.
Locally, the Ninth Annual Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce Bass Tournament is next
Sunday (March 12) at Windy Point on Lake
Istokpoga. Entry forms are available at Lake
Placid Marine and Lorida Bait and Tackle Shop.
Entry fee is $100 per team, (two anglers)
which includes a $10 big bass entry. Hours are
from safe light until' 2:30 p.m. There is a five
bass limit (minimum of 12 inches ) and a bonus.


WHITE
Continued from IE
Once he made it, however, he
realized it was probably the
right way to go.
"It feels like I've had a build-
ing lifted off of my shoulders,"
he said. 'The last-few days have
been difficult. I've been in pro-
fessional baseball. for 'basically
half my life."
A standout from the first time
he picked up a baseball and
roamed the fields at Max Long
Recreation Complex and at the
park than now bears his name
near his boyhood home, White
racked up 557 career strikeouts
in his high school career, which
ranked second in the state and
made him, a first-round draft
pick of the Montreal Expos in
1990.
He made his. major league
debut for the Expos on May 27,
1994, against the Colorado
Rockies, giving up one earned
run on four hits in six innings to
get his first win.
White was traded to the
Cincinnati Reds in 1997, where
he stayed until 2000 when he
was traded to the Rockies. It
was in Colorado where he had
his best season, going 11-2 with
five saves and a 2.17 ERA in 67
relief appearances in 2000.
White spent the 2002 season
with the Reds before being trad-
ed, to the New York Yankees in
their 2003 American League
championship season. After a
brief stint back with the Reds,
he ended up sharing the bullpen
with Avon Park's Tom Gordon
for the part of the 2004 season.
White was released by
Atlanta at the end of spring
training last season and cut by
St. Louis at the end of July after
making six relief appearances.
Minnesota signed him to a
minor-league contract in
January.
He gave up two triples and
two runs in one inning for the
Twins in Thursday night's exhi-
bition game against Boston,

Rod Robbins was fishing out of Mossy Cove Fish
camp on Lake Istokpoga recently when he caught
this super-heavyweight bass. Istokpoga is famous
for producing big bass

prize of $5,000 for the angler catching the bass
that weighs the exact weight secretly pre-deter-
mined by the tournament officials.
This tourney is limited to 50 boats. For con-
venience, entrants may pay at the boat ramp
with exact cash or by check payable to the Lake
Placid Chamber of Commerce. For'more infor-
mation, you can give Norman Lee, the coordina-
tor, a call at lake Placid Marine, 465-2335.
Lee says he expects a large number of entries.
You might want to hurry and get your entry
form in before they are all taken. You won't
often get a chance at a $5,000 prize in a local
competition.
With the water warming up and lighter winds,
this should be a very enjoyable tournament with
-a lot of large bass being caught. The bass are .
bedding in the shallow areas, so finding big bjss
should be a little easier. The beds will be in
three to four feet of water and the big females

'It feels like I've

had a building

lifted off of my

shoulders. The

last few days

have been

difficult.'

GABE WHITE

which turned out to be his last,
time on the mound.
Competing at "the top of the
-world" in, your mid-30s is not
easy,. White said, and he's
amazed at players like Gordon,
38, who continue to be success-
ful in their late 30s and even
into their 40s.
"I've had guys say that the
game will let you know when
it's time, and it's time," said
White, who had a 34-26 record
and a 4.51 ERA in 472 appear-
ances, 15 of them starts, in the
majors.
"Everything was telling me
the time was up. It's time to
move on."
Now that he's made his move
into normal life, White said he's
actually kind of excited about
the future.


"It's a bittersweet feeling,"
he said, although he hasn't been
able to find the resolve to clean
out his locker just yet. "I've got.
a whole new life ahead of me."
What that new life will
include is still up in the air,,
White said. He'd like to get into
racing his brother, Charlie,
is a championship-winning
drag racer in a car that Gabe
bought and might attend
some of the racing schools
offered at Sebring International
Raceway.
"There are a lot of things I'll
be able to do because of base-
ball that at the same time.I was-
n't able to do because of base-
ball," he said.
Coaching isn't out of the pic-
ture, either. White said the
Twins told him that .if he
decides to go that route, he has.
a job with the organization, and
that the Cardinals told him the
same thing last season.
"I'm proud of what I've
accomplished and thankful for
the opportunities I've had," he
said. "I'm not going to turn my
back and completely walk away
from the game. I'm going to
help who I can, when I can."
I No matter, what road he takes
in the future, Whitd is looking
forward to whatever the life of a
retiree holds in store.
"I'm ready to move on and
start a new chapter," he said.
