SEBRING The annex at Covenant
Presbyterian Church was only .a build-
ing, Assistant Pastor Brett Bergman said.
The fire that damaged it, he said, is a
"test of faith."
The Florida Division of State Fire
Marshal has reportedly determined the
fire in the annex early Friday morning
was arson, Bergman said. It left heavy
water damage and smoke damage to the
main electrical room, common area and
kitchen.
The 20-year-old building has been the
fellowship hall since 2001, when the
church, built a new sanctuary. The new
building was not damaged by the fire,
but Bergman said phone connections,

Fire puts county, state



fire units on full alert


Deputies evacuate homes
east of blaze in Sebring
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols felt better being safe than
sorry. .
When a fire began moving too fast Friday
through heavy scrub and flatwoods on the east
side of County Road 635, on its way to the west
side of Orange Blossom Estates, he ordered an
evacuation.
He had originally planned to make it voluntary,
but the flames were moving so fast, he figured
Highlands County sheriff's deputies would have
to return immediately to, get everyone out.
"Your house might bum down. It might not,"
Highlands County Sheriff's Deputy T.J. Thomas
said to a resident as a column of dense black
smoke rose west of Lake Haven Estates, about a
half-mile away. "We don't know yet. The evacu-
ation is for your safety."
Deputies notified about 300 people around 2
p.m. either in person or through the Reverse
911 system of the mandatory evacuation of


Alan and Andalusia Street (west of Jacklin
Avenue), and Elson, Dunn, Sebring, Azelia and
Thompson avenues.
Despite the mandatory evacuation, many peo-
ple remained home, some watering down their
lawns while others sat in lawn chairs and watched
the smoke.
One woman who was doing her best to saturate
her front lawn at 4206 Dunn before watering the
roof said it was scary. She came home for lunch
and saw the smoke. She watched it get closer and
thicker.
According to Sandra Daughtry at Archbold
Biological Station in- Venus, the last significant
rainfall in this area was 2.2 inches on Feb. 4.
"You've had rain, but not much," Daughtry
said, citing 0.01 inch on Feb. 27 as the last rain.
March is more than half over and there has been
no recorded rain f,,i the entire month.
Without rain, forest 'rangers and firefighters
warn that the threat of fire will continue.
On Friday, the Highlands County Agri-Civic,
Center was opened as an emergency shelter.
Only two families sought refuge there by 4
p.m. and by 6 p.m. the center ceased shelter oper-

Health Department asks for bigger site in Avon Park


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING For years, the
Highlands County Health
Department's Avon Park site
has lacked public parking and
only had a couple of programs.
Dr. Paula Thaqi,. health
department director, asked
county commissioners on
Tuesday to let her move the
office into the former tax col-
lector's/office at 400 S. Lake
Ave.
It would move the current
health department out of the

building with approximately


Blackman

plans to build

workforce

homes soon

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Far from just
hoping to build local workforce
housing, local developer Tim
Blackman said he'll do it this
year.
Blackman has 35 acres on
Kenilworth Boulevard, just
south of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office auto mainte-
nance yard.
He doesn't have a site plan,
architectural drawings or a
development name, but plans to
build 130-140 homes in a gated,'
deed-restricted community
marketed to first-time home-
buyers, such as teachers, nurs-
es,. and law enforcement, as
well as to retirees.
If all goes well, he will begin
construction in November or
December 2006. Architectural
and site plans should be ready
in two weeks, he said.

Plans
Blackman has Dale Polston
arranging the site plan, and
Griffon ConsUmIction doing the
architectural drawings for the.,
homes. .... .. ,
The plan is for two-bedroom,
two-bathroom, single-level
houses measuring' 1,200 square
feet 1,600 square feet with a
two-car garage. Lots would be
about a fifth of an acre 8,000
square feet.
Blackman wants to include a
pool, club house, green spaces
as well as businesses along the
road to serve the community,
such as a day care, coin laundry,
coin car wash and perhaps a
convenience store.
Blackman said he's "fully
capitalized" (well-funded) and
expects to keep. home prices
down by negotiating bulk
prices on building materials and
getting good interest rates on
loans.


3,500 square feet of floor space.
That would be big enough to
increase services from just
Women, Infants, and Children
and environmental health
inspections to include primary
care, pediatric dental services,
vital statistics, disease screen-
ing, immunizations, prenatal
care and family planning, Thaqi
said.
Commissioners took no
action on the request Tuesday,
but Commissioners Andrew
Jackson, Barbara Stewart and
Edgar -Stokes all asked to get
the item into the action agenda
as soon as possible.


'This will definitely help the
neighborhood and the Avon
Park area," Stewart said.
Thaqi said Avon Park leads
the county in teenage pregnan-
cies, based on a health study of
the county in 2002. The new
health department would be
directly across the street from
Avon Park Middle School,
readily accessible by car and
foot.
Even more, by offering more
services in Avon Park, the new
site could relieve pressure on
the Sebring health department
office.

Human Services, said Avon

While 40 percent of the coun-

Avon Park, the local health
department, in its current build-
ing, can only serve 20 percent
of the children who need dental
services.
Thaqi said the health depart-
ment would pay for remodel-
ing, which would, in turn, add
value to the county building.
The building was up for sale
three years ago, but failed to
bring any bids.
It will take a while to get the
building ready. Facilities
Manager David Flowers said


it's being used to store Clerk of
the Courts records, as well as
other county materials, such as
books from the Avon Park'
Library, while it was under ren-
ovation.
He can move the boxes to the
facilities management ware-
house in downtown Sebring,
after he remodels some of the
storage space there.
To do that, he needs to make
a request for proposals from
contractors to do the work.
County Administrator Carl

tion could take nine to 12
months.


Forestry: Now is not


the time to burn trash


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Dry conditions
have made Highlands County
another parts of the Heartland
rip for wildfire.-
Now is not the time to be
careless with backyard burning,
* barbecues or cigarettes, accord-
ing to Wildfire Mitigation
Specialist Melissa Yunas with,
the Florida Department of
Agriculture,- Division of
Forestry.
Not only has the area not had
any rain in a while, Yunas said
recent cold fronts have sucked
the moisture from the %vegeta-
tion.
During this time of year,
until rains have returned during
June, people should not fling
cigarettes out of windows and
should be very careful driving
off-road.
People should be very care-
ful to douse used barbecue
charcoal in water for 24 hours
before tossing them out.
Also, Yunas said people
should not bum any yard debris
without a permit issued by the
Division of Forestry. Yunas said
calling the Division of Forestry
at (863) 462-5160 in
Okeechpbee is one way to learn
about optimum burning condi-
A-. m .i U


tions.
The weather at this time of
year, however, is not it, Yunas
said. Even with a permit, peo-
ple should not burn on dry,
windy days. Embers can get
blown for miles.
In good conditions, people
should clear the ground around-
the bum of all flammable mate-
rials, have adequate water and
fire tools available in case the
fire escapes, and they should
only bum during the hours and
conditions specified on the per-
mit.
They should have an adult
attend the fire until it is com-
pletely out.
Other ways to protect homes
from wildfire, according to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture'
Forest Service, include:
Storing gasoline in an
approved safety can away 'from
occupied buildings.
M Keep liquid petroleum gas
tanks far from buildings and
keep clear of flammable vege-
tation.
Keep burnable materials,
such as firewood, picnic tables,'
and boats, away from struc-
tures.
Have a garden hose con-
nected to an outdoor spigot. _

Raceway memories


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Memories of
crazy childhood antics flooded
Ron and Larry Sapp Reed's
minds Thursday as the brothers
stood outside of their former
home.
"Nothing is the same," Ron
said.
Having been away from the
Sebring International Raceway
for 48 years, it was hard to
believe that what they were see-
ing and where they were walk-
ing was their old stomping
grounds.
Pointing across a section of
the racetrack while standing in
front of his old home (now used
as a security
building), Ron
said, "That's 'Nothin
where .the old
water tower Samee.
used to be that
we climbed to
watch the
races." He,
Larry, and even their aunt,
Dorothy Barefield, of Avon
Park, remembered watching
races perched on the tower.
"I used to babysit them for
years when they were little,"
Barefield said. "I never climbed
it with them; but I climbed up
there lots of times with my hus-
band, Dan."
"I can't believe that out of
the 20-some houses that used to
be here, ours is one of the only
two left," Ron said.
When the family first moved
there in 1946, it used to be a
military base. In the early days
of the races, they could watch
from anywhere they wanted and
never had to pay a dime. They
were there for the first race in
1951, and nearly every race
after that until 1958.
"Back then all this fencing
wasn't here," Larry said. "They
used to have brown picket fenc-
ing." Ron told about how they
would just wait until the coast
was, clear and run right across
the Raceway.
The decision to return to>.the
races ,teir nearly thhlfa.centu-
ry came' when Ron made a trip
to Florida' from his home in
Glendale, Ariz. to drive a truck
and boat down for a friend last


Reed family reflects on

how things have changed


year.
"Ellene Fields gave us a tour
of the track while we were
here," he said, "and as soon as I
got home I called up Larry in
Yucca Valley, Calif., and said,
'We're going to the races."'
Plans were made and prepara-
tions for the long trip began..
"Ron even got an old trailer and
fixed it up just to come down,"
Barefield said.
The brothers recalled having
a lot of freedom
t to roam and
is the play when they
were growing
up at the
Raceway.
RON REED While speak-
ing of their
father Dick
Sapp, Ron said, "I remember
Dick used to have this 1949
Plymouth with the top cut off
and no doors and he let us drive
the thing down the track."
Larry added, "At night we'd
take that, same car out there and
drive down the track hunting
rabbits."
The boys also recalled frog
hunting in an old country club
pool which was no longer in
use; a ride around the track in a
Ferrari; chickens in the back-
yard; using an old airplane fuel
tank for a swimming pool; and
building "hobo swings" up in a,
big tree beside the track.
"We could go anywhere,"
Ron said, "including the pits.'
One of Ron's biggest memo-
ries was of Larry, 5 or 6 years-
old at the time. "A mechanic
who worked on race cars at
Dick's hangar had a little scoot-
er and-he let Larry ride it," Ron
said. "He took off on it and
drove it right into a sheet metal
bin."
. Larry said, "Mostly ,what I.
reifn mbe is xs iit'lin ithe .ct '.
and lovirig it."
Larry also recalled someone
trying to jump a picket fence
and falling 'and. breaking his


arm. "It was all bent back a
really bad break," he said.
"That's when Larry decided he
would become a nurse," Ron
joked. His brother is now an
emergency room nurse in
Victor Valley, Calif.
While that may not have
been Larry's career .inspiring
moment, there's little doubt that
Ron's choice of work had
something to do with growing
up at a racetrack.
"I work on old cars now, tak-
ing care of them and showing
them," he said.
Vicki, Ron's wife, spent the
day with the family at the track
on Thursday and said, "I'm
having a great time. I love hear-
ing all these stories."
Maybe after such a nice time
the brothers and their family
will add the 12 Hoiur, of
Sebring to their annual agenda
again.

Waiting for the cows to come home


Thefts still reported at Raceway

'Till The Cows Come Home' Thursday afternoon in Melinda Freeland's third grade class at Sun

Some arrests; 15

people removed

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County sheriff's deputies are
still seeking information to lead
to arrests in cases of cash and
credit cards being stolen from
fans at Sebring International
Raceway.
So far, thefts have involved
items taken from race trailers in
the Paddock area.
Late Thursday, a visitor from
Knoxville, Tenn., reported
credit cards and $220 cash were
stolen.
Other cases were as follows,
and -occurred at approximately
9:30 a.m. Wednesday:
A Key West man reported
credit cards and $6,000 cash
taken from his Feather Light
race trailer.
A couple from Nebraska
reported credit cards and
$3,230 cash taken from their
United Express race trailer.
Two men from North


Carolina reported credit cards
and $1,600 stolen from their
Freightliner semitrailer.
There was also the reported
theft of a golf cart, Sheriff's
Deputy J.P. Fane said.
Typically, such items were
taken for easy transportation
and recovered somewhere with-
in the Raceway grounds.
Anyone with information on
the cases should contact the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office at 402-7200, Fane's
office at 402-7335, or sheriff's
deputies at the Raceway securi-
ty station at 655-4230.
Arrests, removals
As of Friday, deputies had
removed 15 people from the
raceway for unacceptable con-
duct;
Two people Daniel R.
Cain, 21, of Gainesville, and
Kevin P. Zelman, 18, of
Homestead were charged
with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana. Another
two Colin S. Graser, 20, and
Robert W. Thompson, 19, both
of Venice were arrested and
charged with possession of


alcohol by
s someone

from the
Raceway
for unacceptable conduct.
Traffic
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton said her office is
receiving plenty of help from
other counties. For instance,
Polk County Sheriff's Office
often lends its helicopter for
traffic reconnaissance before
the Race.
When the grounds become
too crowded,, to prevent grid-
lock, incoming traffic is rerout-
ed to off-site parking, Benton
said, where people can walk in
or use the Raceway's tram serv-
ice.
Race officials try to control
Raceway traffic before the Race
with designated parking passes.


School board worries about educating by statute


* Second in a series
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING One of the
'important issues pending before
the Florida Legislature is the
combination of proposed bills
with which it aims to reform
secondary education.
Some of the bills are broadly
generic, others are narrowly
specific.
For example, quoting from
bill Florida. Statute 1003.415,
popularly known as the Middle
Grades Reform Act: "It is the
intent of the Legislature that
students promoted from the
eighth grade will be ready for
success in high school."
Or House Bill 967: "Revises
provisions relating to required
instruction and courses of study
ini the public schools; includes
stfdy of the history of the
United States and free enter-
prise; requires standards and
assessments adopted by the
State Board of Education to
conform to requirements for
instruction; includes study of
the Declaration of
Independence for high school
graduation."
The gist of the goals all relat-
ed bills aim for is to::
Increase student engage-
. ment and achievement through
"enhanced instructional oppor-
tunities" that stress rigor and
relevance,
Encourage students to
remain in school and graduate
on time,
Prepare students for post
secondary education, and the
world-of work, and
Ask parents and business
partners ,to keep engaged and
informed.
The Legislature wants to
achieve those broad goals by
providing specifics at different
levels in different areas.
High schools
School districts are to cre-
ate a new high school diploma
based on student interest that
will also include "rigorous'"
core requirements, including
four years of mathematics of
which two years will be level 2
or higher,

SEBRING The 911 com-
.munication consolidation
agreement will go before
Highlands County commission-
ers Tuesday for a final vote.
The agreement will allow the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office to handle dispatching
services for both Lake Placid
and Sebring police depart-
ments.
Avon Park is not included in
the agreement at this time.
The agreement will hopeful-
ly provide increased public
safety response by reducing the
need for callers to repeat infor-
mation to various agencies, and
possibly reducing the cost not


students to earn a higher level
degree or certification or com-
petency while earning a high
.school diploma,
Recognize differentiated
levels of proficiency in content
areas, for example successful
completion of advanced place-
ment or dual enrollment cours-
es,
Institute smaller learning
communities including career
clusters, academies, or
advanced academic studies,
Research the implementa-
tion of end-of-course standard-
ized exams,
Eliminate grade-level-
retention in high school,
Students will have to

mnim grade point average
requirements, and

Middle schools
School districts will devel-
op a core of 12 required cours-
es, including three years each of
mathematics and reading/lan-
guage arts,
Are to encourage rigor by
offering at least one course for
high school credit, with an
emphasis on Algebra I,
Will provide at least one
semester of career education,,
Provide tools so students
can develop a five year educa-
tional plan,
Provide summer acade-
mies that give struggling stu-
dents intensive
intervention/remediation 'each
year between fifth and ninth
grades, with particular empha-
sis on the transition from eighth
to ninth grade. FCAT retakes
should be allowed after the
summer academies.
In general
The legislature wants mid-
dle and high schools to incorpo-
rate reading into every subject
area and course,
Asks that reading material
be engaging and diverse,
Less successful readers are


only for police departments, but
also for fire and emergency
medical services.
Right now, when someone
calls 911, the call goes to any of
four agencies, depending on
where the caller is or what kind
of phone is used.
That dispatcher does not nec-
essarily know if other agency's
officers are nearby or can help.
Mutual aid works well, but
transferring information takes
time. Often, a caller may have
to repeat information to each
agency, which each have sepa-
rate dispatchers or separate
channels.
Under the agreement, the
consolidated call center will be
responsible first for sheriff and

Unfunded mandates passed down to the district by the state legislature, means less money for state-of-
the-art technology like this Smart Board being demonstrated by Sun 'N Lake first-grade teacher
Stacy Leaphart and her student Alex Hornick at Tuesday's school board meeting. The board in the pho-
tograph is the high-end model, which costs $6,000.


to be provided with intensive
reading instruction,
Teachers are to be encour-
aged to pursue reading endorse-
ment additions to their licenses,
School districts should
help school administrators and
teachers meet higher expecta-
tions by providing professional
development opportunities, and
Parents are to be involved
in their children's academic and
career planning.
The impact
Should all of these provisions
pass as written, the result will
have a powerful impact on local
school districts.
Mostly .that impact means
money.
Too often, local educators
say, new requirements are
passed down to the school dis-
tricts without the needed fund-
ing. They point out that this
year is no different.


For example, providing more
advanced placement classes
means hiring additional teach-
ers with those higher level
endorsements, or providing the
opportunity for current teachers
to earn them.
It also means hiring more
guidance counselors to provide
the earlier career path explo-
ration, and summer school
teachers for the remedial stu-
dents as well.
But local school districts are
expected to find the money to
pay for the new hires or in serv-
ice training sessions from their
already existing budget.
In Highlands County, where
new capital programs have
already been cutback or can-
celed altogether due to lack of
funds, that extra money just
doesn't exist.

"It looks to me," Wendy
Renfro, a member of the school
board, said at a recent workshop
"that if our students need the
opportunity (to study more
challenging courses), we .need
to provide it, but we aren't
going to get extra funding for it
folks, so now is a-good time to
ask for the money to do it."
But money isn't the only
problem.
Educators are- concerned
'about the ambiguities and
vagueness in some of the bills.
For example, .who would

be dispatched to incidents with-

mutual aid calls.
Meanwhile, Sebring and

develop the end of year stan-
dardized tests? And what kind
of planning tools should be pro-
vided middle school students?
The lack of time provided
local districts to put complicat-
ed new programs into place is
also a problem typically
mandates issued in May are
expected to be in place by
August.
Educators, say it will take
more than the year allotted by
the legislature, to put the
redesign plan into place.
And while the district has
anticipated some of the new
programs (for example,
Highlands County middle
schools already offer algebra .),
the difference in resources
between larger 'and smaller
school districts is a cause for
e Coicerln. .-. .. ... ..'
The frustration, Renfro said,
"was the cookie cutter laws that
don't fit."
For example; "We're not a
major urban center," said
school board member J. Ned
Hancock at the same workshop.
"It's. harder for us to attract
teachers." He added that the
district, because of its smaller
student population overall, has
fewer advanced placement stu-
dents. That means some schools
might not have enough students
to form up a particular
advanced placement class..
Hancock also was concerned
that the legislature, rather than
educators, was setting school
policy, especially regarding
subject matter.

DoubleTree trouble wins



'Seven Brides' contest


Red Hat Treats


Editor's note: The News-Sun,
Highlands Little Theatre and
Sebring Lakeside Golf Resort
Inn & Tea Room joined togeth-
er to sponsor the Seven Brides
(and Grooms) contest. Scott
and Cindy Maxon of Sebring
won the contest and in doing so
will get a free one night's stay at
the Lakeside Golf Resort and
well as a fiee preview of HLT's
"Seven Brides for Seven
Brothers" on Wednesday. The
Maxons story follows:
Our wedding and reception
started out trouble free enough.
I had the privilege and honor of
wearing my mom's 60-year-old
wedding dress with a lace table-
cloth added for the train (just in
case I spilled something on it!)
No one could tell the differ-
ence!
We said our goodbyes to
family and friends that evening
because -as newlyweds on our
wedding night we wanted to be
alone, and family was staying at
our house. I had made reserva-
tions in .advance for three
days/two nights stay at the
DoubleTree Hotel in Tampa ...
smart .. .right?
Well, not only did we end up
going the wrong way down a
one-way street and get totally
lost after being re-directed by
the Gasparilla Parade, we then

checked into the' wrong
DoubleTree!
When we finally arrived,
they had no reservation for us at
that particular location. Turns
-out that Tampa had several
DoubleTrees .... who knew?
' Well, we did manage to find
the correct one.
Did I mention that our wed-
ding night was one of the cold-
est of the year and that weekend
went down as one of the coldest
in recent memory in Central
Florida? This did make for
great honeymoon snuggling ...
Hello! The only problem was
that the hotel's central fire
alarm went off in the middle of
the night either because of all
the room heaters being cranked
up to the max or maybe it was
just because of us! I don't
know. But, there we were stand-
'ing outside at 2 a.m. with next
to nothing on when suddenly
over the loud speaker we hear
... "Don't be alarmed. There is
no fire; You may re-enter the
hotel."


2002 was not a


It was fall of 2001 when a
group of seniors saw much of
each other at the Highlandaires
Band dances and all fell in love.
Valentine's Day, Feb. 14,
William Tower, a retired music
teacher from Michigan, married
his sweetheart Margarethe,
which started the ball rolling. A
month later, Jerry Million, a
local grape grower, walked his
sweetheart Elli down the aisle'.
That was also the month in
which we see the still single
Stewart Hayner jump over the
net. Not reading the words
beneath the picture, one could
easily think that he was late for
a date with his bride Emily. Or
could it be that he was pursued
by "Mozart" or possibly trying
to get a hold of him. "Mozart"
- certainly a well chosen name
for an accomplished pianist's
feline cat. In reality, Stewart
Hayner was putting his high
jump to a test in preparation for
the Heartland Senior Games
after playing the tennis single
finals.
Their (Stewart and Emily)
wedding had been set for July
20, 2006, and our invitation had
been received, when William
was scheduled for heart surgery
in Qrlando. Circumstances
were such it looked as though
our .attendance was in jeopardy.
Doctors informed recovery was
unpredictable thus we notified
all parties that our attendance
would be unlikely.
Now it so happened to our
surprise that the doctors granted

Leap Year II
Editor's note: This is William
Tower's version of his wedding
day to Margarethe.

She (Margarethe, 63) came
coyly "across the crowded
room" and charmed me
(William, 83) just returned
from Paris. On Valentine's Day
at the courthouse, we were
married to live happily ever
after.
Jerry and Elli (Million), our
new friends, catching the hap-
piness, walked down- the
Catholic Church aisle soon
after greeting the arrival of pur-
ple martins; and lo and behold,
Stewart and Emily (Hayner,
also close friends) caught the
spirit of "three brides and
grooms" to hear their "I do, I
dos" among the blooms of Bok "
Tower just as "M" and I arrived
from Orlando Hospital with
repairs to surprise them ...
"Wow!"
Now after four years, we six
still dance and play in beautiful
romantic Sebring.

Things were looking up
when we did get extra cookies
in the morning for all of our
trouble. We got into the Florida
Aquarium for free when one of
the managers saw our car in the
parking lot with the "Just
Married" sign and "pom poms"
stuck to it. What a generous and
kind gesture.
But once inside, which is
really still outside, we wanted
something hot to drink.
(Remember, it was like Siberia
cold). No hot drinks available
here, only ice cold water and
cold beer!
The kicker happened on the
drive home. The windshield
was really dirty so I asked
Honey Bunny (my husband's
pet name) to turn on the wind-
shield squirters. He said, "Of
course, Pookie" (my pet name!)
As he turned on the wind-
shield washers "Fooop!," the
windshield froze over ... oops!
No washer fluid antifreeze
stuff! .The defrosters' finally
melted it but until then, we
drove down the road with our
heads stuck out the side win-
dows like a couple of dogs!
The best news is that we
arrived home safe and sound,
and the company at the house
was' gone so we could start our
real honeymoon.

model which combines motiva-
tional enhancement and cogni-
tive behavioral therapy tech-
niques in a five-session model.
In addition, Mid-Florida modi-
fied the model to accommodate
youth with co-occurring sub-
stance-related and mental, emo-
tional or behavioral disorders.

tion in Baltimore, Md. on

By 5:20 p.m., the fire was 50
percent controlled with fire
breaks around 90 percent of it,
according to Highlands County
Public Information Officer
Corine Burgess.
Fire crews were still con-
cerned about two places with
"spot over" burns where the
fire had breached fire breaks -
but by 5:40 p.m., the evacuation
was lifted.
Burgess said the fire began at
11:30 a.m., burning 400-500
acres scattered throughout a
1,000-acre area of state-owned
preserves. Emergency manage-
ment employed 35 pieces of
equipment (from brush
pumpers to -bulldozers), of
which the Division of Forestry
supplied 20.
Burgess said county fire
departments were put on "full
alert" and staged at Max Long
Recreational .Complex. under
Fire Services Supervisor James
Branca.


Hardee County provided
mutual support, sending a few
fire trucks.
"I heard on the radio that

Hicks' wife and 'other fami-
lies of the evacuated area had to

school because busses weren't
allowed to make normal drop-
offs. in the affected neighbor-
hood.
Winds on Friday proved
uncooperative, fire officials
said.
West Sebring Assistant Fire
Chief Gloy Turner said the fire
moved clockwise from its orig-
ination point along 635, first
threatening Wood Avenue, off
of, 635; then Lake Haven
Estates; and: finally Orange
Blossom Estates.
Melissa Yunas, Division of
Forestry wildfire mitigation
specialist and information' offi-
cer, who drove in from Stuart,
said her department deployed
extra personnel, seven tractor
plows, a fire engine, three bull-


dozers, a helicopter and an air-
plane.
She said the plane pilot fed
information to the plow opera-
tors, directing movement along
the fire line based on wind
direction and speed and obsta-
cles.
Tom Moran, Highlands
County emergency planner,
watched as the forestry helicop-
ter made two sorties, drawing
water from the vicinity of
Lakes Cristy and Edilia and
Blue Lake, east of 635.
Leftover hurricane debris
fueled the fire and hampered
efforts to control it, Yunas said.
Nichols set up the command

Being a boss means working hard


,By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Eric Eisnaugle, who
opened his first Quizno's franchise three
years ago, likes to tell people he met his
wife Linda while stopped at a light in
Lake Placid.
The truth is that while she's a Lake
Placid native, he met her when they were
both teachers in St. Petersburg.
Eisnaugle, who was born in Ohio and
raised in Sarasota, was happy to move.
inland. Since 1980 they've called
Highlands County home.
With the move came a shift in careers,
and Eisnaugle entered the hospitality
field. At one time he managed both of
the local Holiday Inns.
Like many people, he etCentuall,
longed to be his own boss. Owning a
franchise seemed the perfect route to
that ambition.
After research he chose Quizno's.
"It's a today type of franchise," he said.
While the company has received some
press attention, lately, with speculation
that it is expanding too fast, Eisnaugle
has seen none of that.
In fact he spoke with some passion
about the strong support the company
provides, from it's easy access help line
to the extensive training it demands of
its franchise owners.
"You won't get rich, but you can make
a nice living," Eisnaugle said.
It costs $25,000 to buy the franchise
and owners are required to have $75,000
in liquid capital just to get started.
"Basically you buy yourself a job," he
said.
Quizno's training, Eisnaugle
explained, is thorough and learned from'
the bottom up.
First he had to'go to Orlando for 15
training sessions. He called them
Quizno's 101. Owners memorize how to
make every sandwich, and learn the
kitchen layouts.
Then comes Quizno's 102, where they

"Journey into the Great Unknown-
The Exploration of the Colorado River"

In 1869, the deep, desolate canyons of the Colorado
and the Green Rivers remained unexplored. Four
wooden boats would carry Major John Wesley.Powell
and 9 men on the last great expedition of discovery in the U.S.
Today, the Green and Colorado Rivers still flow through some of the
most isolated and least known landscapes in the nation. The Green
River originating in the high alpine country of Wyoming's Wind River
Range is where we start Our trip includes passing under the fiery red
cliffs of Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. into the heart of
the Uinta Mountains, Canyon of ,.
Lodore, Disaster Falls, Echo Pork,
Desolation Canyon, Stillwater Canyon. -.
and Lake Powell .. just to name a few .
sights. For Powell, the biggest dan- ''
gers, and the most beautiful scenery
were the Grand Canyon. Follow in the
wake of Powell down the Green River .
and Colorado Rivers INTO THE GREAT g I

second grade classes.


SHS. brings Ag Literacy Day


to Fred Wild Elementary


SEBRING Five FFA members from
Sebring High School visited the second grade
classes at Fred Wild Elementary School
Thursday, March 16, for Ag Literacy Day.
The third annual Ag Literacy Day was funded
by Florida Ag In the Classroom and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services.
Morgan Taylor, Chrissy Weaver, Kayla Jones,
Sarah Cleveland and Emily McKenna joined
with FFA members, farmers, ranchers, Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension and
4-H agents across the state to read one of two
books available this year. 'Til the Cows Come
Home" by Jodi Icenoggle was chosen for the
seven sections of second graders at Fred Wild.
It was estimated that almost 800 readers in
nearly 1,000 classrooms were touched by this


year's effort. According to Gary Lee, FFA advi-
sor, these kinds of activities are of increasing
importance with each succeeding generation
becoming further removed from the farni. It is
estimated that there are approximately 44,000
farms in Florida but this represents less than 2
percent of Florida's population that is approach-
ing 17,000,000.
'Til the Cows Come Home" was about a
cowboy who uses and reuses a beautiful piece of
leather and sees it as a sign of unending possibil-
ities. The book was aimed at pre-kindergarten
through fifth grade.
The FFA members expressed satisfaction with
the reception they received in the classroom and
were able to leave book marks for each child and
a packet of free materials available to teachers
through Florida Ag In The Classroom.

Floriculture team competes


SEBRING The Sebring High School Senior
Floriculture team competed Saturday, Feb. 25, in
the state contest at Pinellas Technical Education
Center in St. Petersburg.
The team members were Clifton Cox, Marshall
Merritt, Joshua Fairfield and Jordan Fairfield.
The competition consists of written exam,
identification of 40 plant species, job application,
identifying and controlling plant disorders, han-


dling a customer, complaint, pricing a floral
arrangement and a live practicum which involved
propagation by use of cuttings.
The team placed sixth out of 21 teams that
competed, with Clifton Cox receiving the highest
individual score. The team from Durant High
School took first place in the competition and
will represent Florida in the national contest next
October in Indianapolis.


for growing
Small businesses across
Florida are turning to a little-
known federal program to
acquire property and purchase
equipment for their businesses.
And this program is growing
for one simple reason: Cheaper
money.
For the first time in years, the
federal government is offering
loans that are actually below the
prime rate the interest rate at
which commercial loans are
based. The loans are aimed at
stimulating economic growth
and creating jobs.
Known as the, U.S. Small
Business Administration's 504
Loan Program, these loans are
on the rise throughout Florida.,
"The number of business
owners seeking these loans is
growing, but the program still
remains underutilized," said
Todd Kocourek, president and
chief executive officer of
Tallahassee-based Certified
Development Company Florida
First Capital Finance Corp.
The two main problems that
plague small business owners
who approach banks and other
private-sector lenders for com-
mercial loans are:
1) difficulty in meeting the
high down payment require-
ments, in some cases up to 20,


Florida businesses


percent and
2) rising interest rates. As a
result, businesses are not able to
fully meet their needs, and this
ultimately stunts job growth.
The 504 Loan Program offers
long-term financing at low,
fixed rates and enables borrow-
ers to secure, financing with
only a 10 percent down pay-
ment. The remaining 90 percent
is split between a private lender,
financing 50 percent at market
rates, and a CDC that under-
writes the remaining 40 percent
at below market rates that are
available only through the 504
Loan Program. The loans are
either for 10- year or 20-year
terms.
As of February, the prime
rate was 7.5 percent. The rate
for the 504 portion of a loan
was 6.39 percent.
"Many business owners are
hesitating because they see the
interest rates are beginning to
rise when in fact, we are still
enjoying a period of historically
low interest rates," Kocourek
added. "The window is still
open for many small businesses
to take advantage of the 504
Loan Program and their even
lower rates."
To qualify for a 504 loan,
borrowers must be a for- profit


business in Florida with a tangi-
ble net worth below $7 million
and average after-tax profits
below $2.5 million per year for
the previous two years. Most
types of businesses that meet
these criteria are able to qualify,
and most types of properties,
including office/warehouse
condos and raw land for new
construction, are applicable.
Florida First Capital Finance
Corp. is the state's largest non-
profit CDC that promotes job
creation throughout. Florida by
working with the SBA and pri-
vate-sector lenders to provide
financing to small businesses. It
lends to small businesses under
the SBA 504 loan program and
the State of Florida Recycling,
Loan Program as well as other
small business assistance pro-
grams. Last year it closed on
more than 150 loans worth
more than $360 million.

Refugee


seeks shelter from fire


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Joyce Petraska arrived at the Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center with her husband Gerald, dog Taffy and very little else.
They were the first family to arrive at the American Red Cross
managed shelter as a brush fire threatened their neighborhood
Friday. With tanker trucks in the front of the house, and the fire
out back, Petraska grabbed the family's important papers, the
dog's food, and her check book and fled to safety. It was only
after she got to the shelter, she discovered she'd left Taffy's leash
behind. The Petraskas were fleeing a brush fire Friday that
threatened several hundred homes east of County Road 635.

Where Do You Stand Concerning The Family

And The Sanctity Of Marriage?

1:THiE FAMILY


A PROCLAMATION


TO THE WORLD

THE FIRST PRESIDENCY AND COUNCIL OF THE

TWELVE APOSTLES, OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS

CHRIST OF LATER-DAY SAINTS


WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council
of the Tvkelive Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints, solemnrd proclaim that marriage
between a man and a woman is ordained of god and
that'he family i central to the Creator's plan for the
eternal destiny\ of His children.
ALL HUMNIN BEINGS- male and female,- are created in
the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or
daughter of hea\ enl> parents, and, as such, each-has,
a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential
characteristic of indi\ idual premortal, mortal, and
eternal identity and purpose.
INTHE PREMORTAL REALM, spirit sons and daughters
knew arid worshiped God as their Eternal Father and
accepted His plan by which His children could
obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to
progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his
or her divine destiny as heir of eternal life, The
divine plan of happiness enables family relationships-
to be perpetuated beyonda'thegrave. Sacred ordi-'
nances and covenants available in holy temples make
it possible for individuals'to return to the presence.of
God and for families to be united eternally.
THE FIRST COMMANDMENT that God gav to Adam
and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as
husband and wife. We declare that God's command-
ment for His children to multiply and replenish the
earth remains in force. We further declare that God
has commanded that the sacred powers of procre-
ation are to be employed only between man and
woman, lawfully wedded as husband arid wife.
WE DECLARE the means by whibh mortal life is creat-
ed to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of
life and of its importance in God's eternal plan. '
HUSBAND AND wiFE have a solemn responsibility to'
love and care for each other and for their children.
"Children are a heritage of the Lord" (Psalms 127:3).
Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in
love and righteousness, to provide for, their physical


and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve
one another, to observe the commandments of God
and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.
Husbands and wives-mothers and fathers-will be
held accountable before God for the discharge of
these obligations.
THE FAMILY is ordained of God. Marriage between
man and woman is essential to His eternal plan.
Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of
matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother
who honor marital vows with complete fidelity.
Happiness'in family life is most likely to be achieved
when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus
Christ. Successful marriages and families are estab-
lished and maintained on principles of faith, prayer,
'repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion,
work, and wholesome recreational activities. By
divine design, fathers are to preside over their fami-
lies in love and righteousness and are responsible to
provide the necessities of life and protection for their
.families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the
nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibili-
ties, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one
another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other
circumstances may necessitate individual adapatioin.
Extended families should lend support when need-
ed";
WE WARN that individuals, who violate covenants of
chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail
to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand
accountable before God. Further, we warn that the
disintegration pf the family will bring.upo.. individu-
als, communities, and nations the calamities foretold
be ancient and modem prophets.
WE CALL UPON responsible citizens and officers of
government everywhere to promote' those measures
designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the
fundamental unit of society.


This proclamation was read by President Gordon B. Hinkley as part of his message at the
General Relief Society Meeting held September 23, 1995, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Here's the church-



but where's the steeple?


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK After sur-,
viving the hurricane season of
2004, the steeple of First United
Methodist Church was knocked
off the roof during an ordinary
afternoon storm in November


2005.
"Apparently the hurricanes
had loosened the steeple and we
didn't know about it," church
pastor Robert Thorn said .
"When we realized it was loose
we scheduled someone to come
out and fix it; but before they


L.A. Hart Equipment Inc. Was on hand last week to replace the
steeple on First United Methodist Church in Avon Park. The steeple

could get it done, it came
down."
"It became a lawn dart," said
David Schill of Moorestown,
N.J. "It stuck in the ground and
the point broke." Schill flew
down March 9 to help remount
it.
He, along with seven others,
had come down in November
after the hurricanes of 2004 to
help fix roofs and replace dam-
aged drywall for hurricane vic-
tims. This was Schill's third
mission trip to the area since.
Compelled to offer assistance
to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Schill and other members from
his New Jersey church planned
another trip. Because of all the
-restrictions involved, .they
decided to come back to Avon
Park instead, knowing there
was still plenty of work left
undone.
"We decided to come down
during Christmas break." he
said, becausee. some of the
younger couples' with kids
would be able to come"
/Celebrating Christmas a v.,eek
early, the mission group, "Team
Charlie," headed to Florida,
pushed up their sleeves and
went to work.
"They were all fired up."
Schill said of the group even
the junior high and high school
students."
During that week, while oth-
ers were working on roofs,
Schill worked on repairing the
broken steeple.
"We ran out of time to mount
it and I kne'k that there would
be a lot of work inmol\ed, so I
cane back to finish the job." he
said

Guests attending Tuesday's Kiwanis Club Travel and Adventure Film Series will take a trip down the
Colorado River.


Colorado River is next series stop


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Tuesday,
the Kiwanis Club will present
its sixth program of the Travel
and Adventure Film Series at 5
p.m., at the Highlands County.
Agri-Civic Center Auditorium.
In 1869, the deep, desolate
canyons of the Colorado and
.the Green Rivers remained
unexplored ... the last blank
spot on the map of the United
.States.
Major John Wesley Powell
lost his right arm in the Civil
War, but his driving curiosity
.pushed him beyond any disabil-
ity. Four wooden boats would
carry Powell and nine men on
the last great expedition of dis-
covery in the United States.
A geologist, Powell dis-
missed the warnings of
prospectors and Indian legends
that told of the river plummet-
ing more than 200-foot water-
falls and. tunneling under
ground.
He feared neither waterfalls
... tunnels ... nor tall tales. Nor
was he truly prepared for what
he found.
"We are now ready to start
our way down to the great
unknown. We have an unknown
distalhce yet to run. an unkno%% n
river to explore."

THANKS
STUDENT COUNCIk


Avon Park High student council


completes marquee mission


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK Thanks to
the diligent efforts of the Avon
Park High School student coun-
cil groups from the last three
years, the school's front lawn
now sports a new nearly 20 feet
high marquee, complete with
the Red Devil school logo and a
display- section for posting
signs.
According to Lynn Cloud,
student council sponsor of the
past five years, every year the
group raises money to designate
for something to beautify or
improve the school.
"Three years ago the student
council looked around the
school and decided that the
marquee wasn't looking very
good," she said. "We looked
into prices for a new one and


found that it would be quite
costly. Making the sign a prior-
ity, they determined to save the
money until they could replace
it."
Three years later, after rais-
ing $15,000 through various
fund-raisers including barbe-
cue dinners, homecoming
dances, Pitchfork Games, home
candle parties, and selling of
Spirit Cards their hard work
and commitment has paid off.
"After we got the money to
order the sign from Signs Plus
in Sarasota," Cloud said, "we
still wouldn't have been able to
put it up because of the cost of
shipping and hiring people to
tear down the old one and
install the new one."
Thanks to the School
Advisory Council, who paid for
the shipping, concrete and some


other materials; Jim ,Frazier
Citrus Tree Removal, who
removed the old concrete sign;
Ronnie and Mort Jackson, who
dug and poured the footer; and
Randy Wright and Brian Cox,
of Steel Products, who put the
sign in place (with the aid of the
Jacksons); their vision came to
fruition.
"Without all of them pitching
in it probably would have taken
us another year to raise the
money to get it done," Cloud
said.
"I'm amazed that it only took
three years, and am very proud
of what the students have
accomplished," she said. "I've
been encouraging them to sell
the things and they've really
stepped up to the plate. Without
the support of the student body,


and the community we would-
n't have been able to meet our
goal."
Carol Revels, assistant prin-
cipal, said of the students'
achievement, "We just very
much appreciate what they did
to raise money for that beautiful
sign, and for all who helped
make it possible."
Student council members
Brittany Hodge, Megan Jones,
and Alma Arrequin, expressed
the sentiments of the rest of the
student council, agreeing that
the sign is a great addition to
the school.
"It just makes the school
stand out so much more than
the old one, which was much
shorter," Arrequin said.
All were appreciative of the
support they received over the
past three years.

Visiting the college kid, relieving the fears


I like to remind
people that John is
the first college kid
I've ever launched.
This is important
to understand as
you read this col-


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


umn.
Don and I decided we would
pay a visit to John at Freed
Hardeman University, which is
in Henderson, Tenn., which is
not simply a hop skip and a
jump away.
In fact, it is a long painful
drive to Henderson. Somehow
the trip didn't seem this hard
*- when we were delivering John
to college. Of course, that time
we didn't start the trip at 8 p.m.
-- iri the evening, our goal a hotel
in Perry, Ga.
Starting a trip to Perry at 8
p.m. is not for the faint of heart.
Caffeine becomes your friend.
I found myself singing snatches
of songs as I peered through the
darkness, sharing the interstate
with trucks and other crazy peo-


ple.
We staggered
into Perry at 4 a.m.
Later that morning
we were back on


the road, heading
north.
We had planned a side trip to
Norcross, Ga., to visit a friend
of mine. Tina has known me
since before I had children,
back when I was on the outer
edges of sanity. We keep phone
lines and the Internet humming
with communication, telling
our husbands that our occasion-
al phone marathon sessions are
cheaper than therapy.
I tell you what a special
friend Tina is to explain why we
endured the horrors of Atlanta
traffic to visit her. I wouldn't do
that for just anyone. I can't find
a Bible verse to back it up, but I
suspect if you have lived badly
you have to go to Hell by way
of downtown Atlanta.
Tina, remembering her col-
lege days and the food that went


* *


with it, presented us with a loaf
of banana bread to take to John
and his roommate. She thought-
fully gave us a loaf too, which
everyone in the house enjoyed,
including Perky when I left it a
little too close to the edge of the
kitchen counter. But I digress.
Don and I got to Henderson
at 3 a.m. and collapsed. After
enough sleep to make us coher-
ent, we went to meet John.
John presented as a normal
college student when we saw
him ii other words, stressed,
tired and sick of cafeteria food.
Taking pity on him, we took
him out to eat a lot. He was kind
enough not to be embarrassed
to be seen with his parents.
For the next couple of days,
we saw him in his world. No,
we did not sit in oh any of his
classes we were there to see
how things were going, not
cause him to die of embarrass-
ment. But we kidded with his
roommate, sat with him in.his
dorm room, watched him clean-


ing up his room (and Mom
almost died from the shock) and
found out a little better how his
day-to-day life was.
It seems strange. For years I
pretty much knew what John's
day-to-day life was. After all,
he lived here. And somehow e-
mails, phone calls, or online
chatting doesn't convey this
(part of that is that John makes
mimes seem talkative) now that
he lives hours away.
Am I worried about him?
I'm a morn; worry is part of the
job. But he is a good boy who I
see turning into a good man.
College is a time for a person to
find their way; I see him look-
ing for-it with intelligence and
growth.
That makes driving there in
the wee hours of the morning
Sort it.

Florida counties commend governor on


commitment to transportation


Florida's counties commend
Governor Jeb Bush for includ-
ing an additional $7.7 million
in the state budget for Medicaid
N o, n- E me r g enc y


GUEST C

Welton


Transportation. Also known as
the Transportation
Disadvantaged (TD) Program, this worth-
while effort ensures that citizens who are
unable to transport themselves can get to
their doctor's visits, or. receive dialysis
treatment, or simply buy groceries, for the
wveek.
The additional $7.7 million improves
our communities by increasing transporta-
tion services for persons who, because of
physical or mental disability, income status,
or age,, have no means of transport. They
are dependent on others to access things
many of us take for granted,: such as health
care, employment, education, shopping,
and even social activities. Citizens who
would otherwise be homebound can lead
more fulfilling lives.
Clearly, the governor recognizes the


tMN importance of non-emergency
OLUMN transportation and the need for
this program in communities
Cadwell across the state. In 2004,
Florida's potential TD popula-
tion was 6.3 million residents.
That number is expected to
grow to 8.25 million by 2015.
The TD program is also invaluable dur-
ing hurricane evacuation efforts. Special
needs persons are the first to evacuate and
community transportation coordinators are
the ones to facilitate these evacuations.
They also continue to provide services after
a disaster by providing trips to dialysis
appointments and urgent care medical trips.
They also assist in the delivery of water and
food.
The Florida Commission for, the
Transportation Disadvantaged is not only
important to the citizens who use the serv-
ices, it is also a model program that has
won state and national awards for service
and leadership. They have successfully
established a statewide coordinated system


disadvantaged
in Florida, and saved the state millions of
dollars in the process.
The governor's proposed increase is a
step in the right direction. Yet, we must
remember that providing transportation to
those who need it most is an ongoing and
ever increasing necessity. Together with the
state, county governments remain commit-
ted to finding ways to increase funding and
resources for this program.
The Florida Association of Counties will
continue to work with the Florida
Commission for the Transportation
Disadvantaged, the Governor's office and
the Legislature to ensure the level of fund-
ing for this program is appropriate.
Florida's counties applaud the governor for
his commitment to improving the lives of
the citizens in our great state.

Commissioner Welton Cadwell (Lake
County) is president of the Florida
Association of Counties, a non-profit asso-
ciation representing the interests of
Florida's 67 counties.


Parents must face facts about children and sex


With the polarization of sex
bombarding our society by'
media outlets, influential adults
and family members, there are
disturbing facts that parents
across the country face. Girls
are becoming more sexually
active or consenting to sex at a
younger age, some as young as
10 years old.
It is scary, but factual. In
today's society the average girl
begins to develop or show signs
of puberty between the ages of
10 and 11, with a small percent-
age exhibiting some signs of
puberty at age 8 and 9. A
national survey by the Kaiser
Family Foundation shows one
in 12 students, or 8.3 percent,
participate in their first sexual
activity before their, 13th birth-


day. Furthermore, 24 percent of
girls and 27 percent of boys
experience sex by age 15.
At a local school, a pregnan-
cy kit was found in the girls',
bathroom. It was rumored that
it belong to a 12-year-old
female student. A survey with


students from our area concern-
ing young girls willingly con-
senting to sex found out the fol-
lowing:
A 17-year-old girl said,
"In some homes, parents are the
ones setting the stage for their
daughters to have sex by having
multiple partners jumping in
and out of their beds. So, the
girls are just following what
their mama did."
A 16-year-old male high.
school student said, "Peer pres-
sure ... they feel like if they
don't have sex, then they will
be labeled as scared, weird or
for boys be called a punk or a
- homosexual. Girls have sex to
feel wanted and to get a man
that they think that they're in
love with ..."


A 15-year-old high school
female said, "The 12-year-old is
naive. They think that by hav-
ing sex it will make them popu-
lar and make them feel wanted,
What they don't know is that
the boys tell their friends that
they are easy. Boys brag when
they 'score;' and before you
know it the entire school knows
about you."
"Girls are not just having
regular sex, they are experi-
menting with other forms of sex
and are introducing it to the
boys."
"Check some book bags
and you'd be amazed at what
you find.
"Trust me, don't blame

sented to them, girls are not all
that innocent." .
M A 17-year-old male student
said, "If a girl sees you and
likes you they'll come after you
and force sex on you. ... many
parents are not home after
school so it's easy for the girls
to invite a boy home ... what do
you think, they're doing home-
work or school project?"
A 17-year-old female stu-

some of the girls in 'middle

them drinking from my glass ...
I would not share my drinks
with them. They're nasty. They
come to school to perform mul-
tiple sex acts. Nasty. They have
no business doing that."
A nurse said, "Because
they think they're grown ...
think they, will be most popular.
There is no guidance, no moral
teaching, no validation of self...
No one telling them that they're


beautiful in God's sight. No
father figure with positive
image. No. father figure to tell
them about men."
. Where does a 12-year-old get
money to buy a pregnancy kit,
was a question asked. The
responses:
One student said, "Some
girls are secretly and some are
openly having sex with older
men or older teenagers who are
working. They get money.
Some parents know that their
daughters are having sex, but
allow it to happen because of
the money that comes with the
relationship."
Another student said, "The
man Wants the girl to keep quiet
... he knows that if the relation-
ship is exposed, then, there
could be jail time. Know what
some men don't really care..
They buy these young. girls'
thongs as gifts, and these idiots
wears them and brag. about it."
Parents need to warn their
17- year-old sons that if they
have sexual intercourse with an
underage girl and the authori-
ties find out, these young men
can go to jail if the act is found


to be factual. Even if the sex is
consensual, having sex with a
minor is a serious offense.
After serving time, the individ-
ual then has to register as a sex
offender.
A national survey by the
Kaiser Family Foundation
found that parents are support-
ive of comprehensive sex edu-
-cation in schools. At least 90
percent said they want sex edu-
cation to be taught in grades
seventh and eighth. Another
56 percent of parents said all
aspects of se\ education should
be taught, irn.ludiim birth con-
trol, safer sex, and sexually
transmitted diseases.
It was also discovered that
many schools are operating
with outdated materials.
Teachers are unprepared to
teach or speak on topics of a
sexual nature.
, The National Association of
Elementary School Principals is
working vigorously to find
ways to deal with the rapid mat-
uration of young teens. For

Operation Round Up Foundation

donates $20,000 to retirement home


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA On
Tuesday, Peace River Electric
Cooperative's Operation
Round Up Charitable
Foundation presented a check
for $20,000 to its first applicant
and first recipient of funds -
Resthaven, an assisted living
facility in Hardee County.
Resthaven, serving as a home to
senior citizens for more than 50
years, was heavily damaged by
Hurricane Charley in 2004.
The facility remained closed
for nine months while repairs
were being made, which meant
that all of the residents had to
be moved to another facility or
reside with family. Since its
reopening in May 2005,
Resthaven has struggled to


regain its former resident cen-
sus. Prior to the storm the facil-
ity housed 35 residents; today it
has only reached a level of 26.
Resthaven relies heavily on
contributions and donations
from the community in order to
serve these seniors with much
needed healthcare. Due to the
active 2004 hurricane season
their resources were stretched
beyond their limit.
PRECO's Operation Round
Up program was there to pro-
vide the needed assistance that
Resthaven desperately needed.
Operation Round Up is a volun-
tary program funded by the
members/consumers of the
cooperative. PRECO "rounds
up" the members' electric bill to

Lessons from

a squirrel
Perhaps there's a secret
school squirrels attend that
heightens their instinctive
ability to outsmart humans.
We thought we had '
solved the squirrel problem.
A bird feeder designed with
a spring tension proved to
be functional and attractive.
The squirrel's weight pulled
down the springs of the
feeder causing the bronze
metal leaves to cover the
openings and block the
food.
They tried over and over
again, but to no avail. And
we laughed.
For a time, we thought
we had them beat. Then
they came back, continually
poking and prying for the
food. But, it seemed they
hadn't succeeded.
We can't keep constant
watch. So, when we noticed
that they were staying on
the feeder longer and getting
something for their trouble
- perhaps lingering frag-
ments from the birds we
took a closer look. Our
mouths dropped open.
When they weren't being
chased, the squirrels had
managed to get under the
metal leaf, chew away the
plastic surrounding the
opening and reach the food.
Not long after this discov-
ery, a woodpecker came to
feed. As he pulled away, the
bird seed poured out. The
laugh was on us.
Thus my question. Is
there a secret squirrel school
we don't know about?
I know that God gave
man intelligence far beyond
a squirrel. But the instincts
and resourcefulness of these
little rodents baffles the best
of us.
Perhaps it is so we will
learn lessons from these lit-
tle creatures. Besides their
resourcefulness, how about
persistence? They never
give up. They are bold.
Heights don't frighten them
and they willingly leap to
"inaccessible" bird feeders
in a single bound.
The Bible speaks about
other small creatures as it
warns and gives words of
wisdom.
"Four things on earth are
small, yet they are extreme-
ly wise: Ants are creatures
of little strength, yet they
store up their food in sum-
mer. Coneys are creatures of
little power, yet they make
their homes in the crags;
locusts have no king, yet
they advance together in
ranks; a lizard can be caught
with the hand, yet it is
found in kings, palaces."
(Proverbs 30: 24-28, NIV)
God uses many avenues
to teach us lessons even
his own little creatures.
Perhaps the lesson I need
to learn from the squirrels is
determination not only in
matters of teaching them
backyard etiquette but in
other areas as well.
Determination speaks of
strength of will and firm
intentions. Is there some-
thing facing any of us that
will require this kind of
tenacity? Through the
power of the indwelling
Holy Spirit, believers can
partake of the divine nature
and exercise God's wisdom
and commitment deter-
minedly. Selah.

Lorida girl

wins Combee

Rodeo

Association's


top award


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
LORIDA
competing for the
first time against
youngsters Nith a
lot more expenence
under their belts, Aldyn
Ashton, 8, pulled off quite an
impressive feat when she
brought.home the All-Around
Cowgirl award in the Combee
Rodeo Association's Tots d i-
sion.
During the season, March
through October, Ashton com-
peted in barrel racing, pole
bending, and goat tying.
Her mother Dina Ashton
attributed her daughter'% suc-
cess to her father Quinn. "He's
the one who made it possible."
she said. "He has worked with
her and taught her pretlt much
everything she knows."
Quinn passed on the kudos.
saying, "I really have to gi\ e
credit where credit is due. If it
weren't for Paint, she couldn't
have done it."
Paint, a 14 year-old Pinto
which the Ashtons traded a
bull for six years ago, has
proven to be more of a blessing
than they could have e\ er
hoped for. Originally only a
cow horse, he had never been
used for competition. It wasn't
until three years after acquiring
him that the family began to
realize the untapped potential
contained in this unique horse.
"He's a one-in-a-million.'
Quinn said. "He just does
whatever you want."
Not only is Paint a fine
looking horse, Quinn referred
to him as a gentleman and a
pleasure. Having had a lot of
rodeo experience himself. ow n-
ing and working many horses
over the years, he considers
Paint exceptional.
"They say you may only
have one great horse in a life-
time and this is that one. It's
kind of like singers try ing to
make it in Nashville, there are
a lot of good ones but you have
to be great."
Quinn explained that lots of
horses are very good at com-
peting in one event, but often
that is all they're good for.
"You may have a horse that
is excellent at barrels, poles, or
whatever. When it's game time
they know what to do and are
100 percent in the game. But
they aren't a pleasure just to
ride," he said. "Paint is both a
pleasure to ride and a great
competition horse. He just
wears so many different hats,
so to speak."


Photos oy ELAINE SEDLOCLKNews-Sun
Aldyn Ashton, 8, of Lorida, practices roping. She and her horse, Paint, are learning break away roping for this year's upcoming Combee
Rodeo Association season.Quinn Ashton (inset photo at right) takes a break from coaching his daughter Aldyn's barrel racing practice to
take his son, Dax, 6, for a ride behind his four-wheeler on a dummy calf part of a steer roping exercise.


Not only has Paint served
Aldyn well in the events she's
participated in, but Quinn's
nephew Miles Ashton has used
him for steer roping and Quinn
has used him for hazing.
'To have four events done
off of one horse you hardly
ever see that," he said.
Like Roy Rogers and
Trigger, Aldyn and Paint just
make the perfect horse and
rider combination.


"They just gel together. It's
like they were made for each
other," Dina said.
It wouldn't be fair to let
Paint steal all the glory though.
Much credit obviously is
deserved by Aldyn.
"She is very coachable and
works hard at what she does,"
Quinn said.
Last year she practiced an
average of a couple hours a
week; but this year Quinn said


she'll need to bump it up to at
least five because she is work-
ing on teaching Paint to wear
yet another hat.
"They are working on
adding break away roping to
their events," hesaid. "She's
got the basics down and now
we're building on that. She's
hoping to win All-Around,
Cowgirl again next season."
Though rodeo riding is a lot
of work, requiring a good deal
of time, money, and commit-
ment from the family, the
Ashtons are enjoying it.
"'It's a good family activity,"
Dina said. ''On rodeo days
Quinn gets the horse and
everything loaded up and ready
to go while I get the kids ready
and pack everything we need
- then we're off. By the time


we get home it's late, so I get
the kids ready and into bed
while he unloads the horse and
everything else at the barn."
Someone whose daughters
rode competitively once told
Quinn that if his daughter gets
into it seriously he would have
to become a truck driver, a
banker and a groom all
overnight.
"That was exactly right,"
Quinn said. "But I don't mind.
All of the children I've seen
involved in it are really good
kids. And later on Aldyn may
get scholarships for college out
of it."
Though she loves to ride and
devotes a lot to the sport, her
school work comes first. "If
her homework isn't done,"
Dina said, "she doesn't ride."

ARTS & LEISURE


Jazz Series closes at SFCC


with guitarist Howard Alden


AVON PARK The South
Florida Community College's
Jazz Series will conclude its
season at 7:30 p.m. March 27,
at the University Center
Auditorium with the Howard
Alden Quartet, featuring one of
the world's most popular jazz
guitarists and, perhaps, most
recorded with well over 65 CDs
to his credit.
"He may be the best of his
generation," wrote Owen
Cordle in JazzTimes. Chip
Deffaa of the New York Post
observed that he is ... one of
the very finest guitarists work-
ing today."
Afden began playing in 1968,


when he was 10 years old. He
has been inspired by the record-
ings of Armstrong, Basie, and
Goodman, along with the major
jazz guitarists Barney Kessel,
Django Reinhardt, George Van
Eps, and Charlie Christian.
As a young man, he worked
in the Los Angeles area in dif-
ferent jazz settings. In 1979, at
age 21, he joined vibist Red
Norvo and worked with him off
and on for several years. After
moving to New York City in
1982, he soon became in big
demand as a soloist with major
names such as Joe Williams,
Ruby Braff, Woody Herman,
and Warren Vache. Since then,

A cast comprised of many teachers and students at Hardee junior and senior high schools, present 'Once
Upon a Mattress,' at the historic Wauchula City Hall Auditorium in late March and early April.

'Once Upon a Mattress' opens


he has played with most major
jazz greats and appeared at jazz
festivals and night clubs all
over the globe.
In addition to his bassist and
his drummer, Alden's group
features jazz singer Terri
Richards Alden. In 1982, Terri
Richards Alden worked in
Orlando with jazz trombonist
Bill Allred's band. In 1986 she
signed with the Walt Disney
Company to perform exclusive-
ly at the Village Lounge where
she recorded her first of many
albums.
A personal highlight for
Howard Alden is his associa-
tion with the Concord Jazz
label. In 1991 Alden, who then
played a six-string guitar,
recorded with the master of the
seven-string guitar, George Van
Eps for the album "Thirteen
Strings." The inspiration from
that session carried over to
' Alden's decision to switch to
the seven-string guitar for its
greater range and harmonic
richness.
In addition, to concerts and
recordings, he has worked in
Hollywood. In Woody Allen's
movie "Sweet and Low Down,"
which starred Sean Penn por-
traying a legendary jazz artist,
Alden performed the guitar
music for the soundtrack. Not
only did he play the solos but
also coached Penn on the tech-
niques of the guitar.
The 2005-2006 SFCC Jazz
Series has been co-sponsored
by Bill and Lisa Jarrett and
Highlands Today.
Tickets for this final Jazz
Series performance range from
$18 to $20.

Homeowner's yard first line of defense


It may surprise you to know
that your yard is the first line of
defense for Florida's fragile
environment.
The health of Florida's estu-
aries, rivers, lakes and aquifers
depends in part on how you
landscape and main-
tain your yard. And
you don't even have .
to live on the water
to make a difference. '
Storm water
runoff is the reason.
Rain falls on yards,
roads and parking
lots, and then washes
into tributaries and GROI
the lagoon, carrying S r
pollutants like fertil-
izers, pesticides, soil
and petroleum prod- High


Scientists have
discovered that fer-


tilizers and pesticides from res-
idential areas are serious threats
to the health of Florida's
waters. When runoff contains
nitrogen from fertilizers, algae
can become so abundant that
oxygen is depleted and fish kills
may result. In some freshwater
environments phosphorus is


often the nutrient responsible
for algae blooms. Toxic sub-
stances, such as common land-
scape and household pesticides,
can damage reproduction in
marine life.
But all is not gloom and
doom. A new ethic is
emerging among con-
cemed Florida home--
owners who seek to
redefine the image of
home and landscape.


The idea is to cooper-
ate with local, natural
conditions, rather
than to battle the ele-

More people are
N conserving water and
- energy inside and out-
ands side the home. Interest
Master is growing in landscap-
ners ing with native and
other beneficial trees,
shrubs 'and ground covers.
Homeowners are choosing
plants that blend beauty and
environmental benefits. People
are selecting safer alternatives
to chemicals used indoors and
out.
Best of all, many of these
benefits to the environment also


save time and money while
enhancing our special Florida
lifestyle.
Florida-friendly landscaping
emphasizes nine major princi-
ples:
E Right Plant, Right Place
0 Water Efficiently
Fertilize Appropriately
0 Mulch
E Attract Wildlife
N Control Pests Responsibly
0 Recycle
0 Reduce Runoff
E Protect the waterfront
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program is
being implemented through
your local county extension
service in Highlands,
Okeechobee and Glades County
and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319
funding from the U. S. EPA
through the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods Program was
developed to address serious
problems of pollution and dis-
appearing habitats by enlisting


homeowners in the battle to
help save our natural environ-
ment. This program provides
special educational and out-
reach activities directed at the
community to help residents
reduce pollution and enhance
their environment by improving
home and landscape manage-
ment. This program can help
you transform your yard into a
beautiful oasis that will not only
conserve precious water
resources and reduce pollution,
but will also help you save time,
energy and money.

Is there a red wiggler in the house?


In the past I've talked about
the benefits of composting and
mulching. Creating a compost
pile is a great .way to use
kitchen and yard wastes and
create organic fertilizer for your
plants. Another interesting way
to compost kitchen scraps is
with worms, otherwise known
as vermicomposting.
Vermicomposting is great for
people who live in an apartment
or condo because it takes very
little space. The resulting com-
post can be used in potted
plants. One pound of worms
can turn 65 pounds of garbage
into garden compost in 100
days. If you're just starting off
you may consider starting
smaller.
To start vermicomposting
you will need a home for your
worms. A one to 18 gallon plas-
tic or Styrofoam container with
a lid will do. One that's eight to
12 inches deep is best. You will
have to modify the container to
allow for air circulation (yes,
worms need air). Drill four
holes about four inches from
the top of the container and
cover the holes with some win-
dow screen (new or old) with
duct tape.
The worms will also need
some moist bedding to live in.
Shredded office paper or news-
paper is perfect for this. You


will need enough to fill your
container two thirds full.
Water is needed to moisten
the bedding. Place the dry bed-
ding in a large container and
add water until it covers the
bedding. Allow the bedding to
absorb as much water as possi-
ble before putting it in the
worm bin. Before putting the
bedding in your bin, squeeze
the water out from the bedding
as much as possible. The bed-
ding should feel like a well-
wrung washcloth. Place the
bedding in the bin and fluff.
Your bedding needs to remain
moist. If it is drying out, use a
fine mist and dampen the bed-
ding again.
Of course, you also need
worms. Red wigglers are the
best choice. Local worm farms
or bait stores can usually pro-
vide these "orrms. You can also
check a lawn and garden cata-
log. You will need between one
half and one pound of worms.
To add xworm to the bin, simply
scatter [hem over the top. The
skin on the worm reacts to light
and they will immediately work
their a\r down into the bed-
ding to get away from the light.
(1Make sure you normally keep
your bin covered for this rea-
son.)
The kitchen wastes you feed
to. your worms can be from a


variety of sources,
including all veg-
etable and fruit
waste, pasta left-
overs, coffee
grounds (with filter)
and tea bags. Worms
have a gizzard like
chickens so fine grit
should be added to
help the worms NEWS
digest food. This T
gritty material T
includes cornmeal, WATEI
coffee grounds
and/or finely Jennifer
crushed egg shells
.(dry the shells and
then crush). Avoid large
amounts of fat, meat scraps or
bone. Some sources feel that a
small amount of meat and eggs
will provide protein to the
worms, but be careful you don't
overdo it and know that you
may attract rodents.
In the beginning, add food
slowly. Your bin will quickly
become smelly if you add too
much food too fast. In the
beginning, add a, very small
amount of gritty material (see
above) and a small amount of
vegetable matter. Don't worry
about the forms s starving
because the\ \\ ill be eating bed-
ding us well. You can gradually
increase the amount of food as
the bin becomes established.


F
'HE
RS

r


The easiest method
is to spread the scraps
in a thin layer on top
of the bedding. If the
bin is kept in a dark
place or covered, the
worms will come to
the surface to eat. You
can also pull back a
small amount of bed-
FROM ding in the bin and
dump in the scraps.
Cover the scraps with
SHED an inch of bedding.
Start at one comer of
Donze the bin and bury
- garbage in a pattern to
fill in all the spaces.
By the time you get back to the
first burying spot, the worms
will have composite most of
the waste.
If you notice odors, cut back
on the amount of food or try
chopping the food up into
smaller pieces. Note: citrus
does have a strong odor and the
peelings seem to last a long
time in the bin. Bins seem to be
more manageable when there is
less fruit and citrus and more of
the leafy vegetables.
After about three to four
months the worms will have
digested the bedding and food
scraps into a rich, dark com-
post. Compared to ordinary
soil, the worm castings contain
five times more nitrogen, seven


times more phosphorus and 11
.times more potassium. They are
rich in humic acids and improve
the structure of the soil.
To harvest the compost and
keep the bin going, push the
compost to one side of the bin
and fill the empty side with
moistened, shredding newspa-
per and kitchen scraps. The
worms will eventually leave the
compost and migrate towards
the food.
The compost can then be
removed. Pick out any worms
or white worm eggs and return
them to the bin.
Now you can use your fresh
compost. For potted plants, add.
a thin layer to the top of the pot-


ting soil. You can also add the
compost directly into your soil
mix when repotting. In the gar-
den, simply work it into the
ground around the base of each
plant. The compost is very mild
and you won't have to worry
about accidental burning or
over-fertilizing.

Where to find peace like a river


While we don't encourage
nap time at the library, we can
offer you Sebring Library's
March theme; "I've got peace
like a river".
That old gospel chorus
encourages us to slow down
and absorb the beauty and
serenity of the creation around
us. Our vertical displays have
book covers showing magnifi-
cent rivers and falls in all the
glory of their seasons, while the
display cases for the month are
courtesy of Peace of Highlands
County.
With spring's official day
looming, some of us remember
that, north of us, winter's snow-
fall accumulation, dirty and ice
crusted, will soon begin its
meltdown and rivers of water
will *be rushing down streets
and ditches, across fields and
into streams. The rivers will
swell with the burden of the
melt-off and wash away win-
ter's now muddied white.
Spring means green lots of
it.
Those who live along river-
banks, whether they are south-
ern or northern, learn to watch
the moods of the river, enjoying
its beauty, but also respecting
its power. Come read with us
about our magnificent rivers:


"The Colorado
River;" "The
Everglades: River of
Grass;" "The
Kentucky;" "The
James;" "Missouri
River;" "Mississippi
River;" "Lower
Mississippi" and
"The Rio Grande."
If you read Mark
Twain's books of life
on the Mississippi, or
couldn't put down

you glimpsed a slow-
er (but not necessarily safer)
way of travel via our nation's
waterways. People still travel
today, navigating our nation's
inland waterways. William
Least Heat Moon writes of his
travels in River Horse: "The
Logbook of a Boat Across
America." Get even closer to
home with our "Cruising Guide
to the Northern Gulf Coast:
Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana;" or check out our
"Florida Cruising Directory,"
loaded with facts to help your
journey planning. You want
adventure on the water?, Hardee
County Library will be happy to
lend you "River: One Man's
Journey Down the Colorado,
Source to Sea." This river's


power and beauty are
(- legendary.
Part of the policing
of the waterways
falls to the counties
with the largest bod-
- ies of water ...
expect to see law
enforcement on
STampa Bay, Lake
LINES Okeechobee, and
other major lakes and
'lyn ports in our state. Our
'link juvenile book "River
Patrol Boats" gives a
glimpse into the
responsibilities of our water
safety enforcers who deal with
poachers, drunk drivers, and the
usual careless navigators, plus
all that nature can throw at hap-
less fishermen and pleasure
boaters.
Since the rivers were the
highways of travel when our
nation was young, you can
expect that many western fic-
tion books will have titles that
reflect this: "River of Swans;"
"River of Death;" "The Red
River;" "The Cimarron River;"
"The Gila River;" "The High
Missouri;" "The Powder
River;" "Purgatory River" or
"The Pecos River."
"River Boy: the Story of
Mark Twain" tells of the child-


hood of Samuel Clemens, who
grew up beside our greatest
river, the Mississippi, and
became probably the best story-
teller in American history. More
biographies on this famous son
of America are readily available
on our shelves: "Mr. Clemens
and Mark Twain, a Biography;"
"Inventing Mark Twain: the
Lives of Samuel Langhorne
Clemens;" "Dangerous Water: a
Biography of the Boy Who
Became Mark Twain" and
"American Boy: the Adventures
of Mark Twain." You'll also
find his life story on video and
DVD.
Reserve the video
"Kissimmee: River of Dreams,"
and feel your heartbeat slow
and your pulse settle down for a
visual feast of beauty and seren-
ity. We hope you'll find "peace
like a river" this spring at your
libraries.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
March 18, 2001: The
Sebring Lady Blue Streaks
struck for nine runs in the
first two innings and coast-
ed to a 12-2 win over Lake
Placid. Dani Howard and
Olivia Bone both went 3-
for-5 and coach Lee Tolar's
team improved to 6-4 in
district play.

10 Years Ago
March 17,1996: Oldsmo-
bile blew away the imports
becoming the first
American manufactured
car to win the 12 Hours of
Sebring since the Ford
GT40 in 1969. The World
Sports Car team of'Wayne
Taylor, Jim 'Pace and
defending Sebring winner
Eric Van de Poele bested

The No. 2 Audi RIO leads a pack of cars through Turn 10 on the %%as to %inning ihe 12 Hours of Sebring on Saturday.


Kristensen, diesel-powered

Audi earn historic victory


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
SEBRING New car, same
result.
The pole-sitting No. 2 Audi
turbo diesel RIO, forced to tjart
the Race from the pit lane due
to problems %ith its heat
exchanger after warm-ups, .had
plenty to overcome in trying to
win its seventh overall title at
the 54th Annual Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring on Saturday.
Undaunted, the No. 2 R10
prototype driven by Allan
McNish, Rinaldo Capello and
Tom Kristensen patient-
ly worked its way to the
front eventually over-
taking the sister Audi
machine to claim the
checkers at the historic


track by four laps.
With the win,
Kristensen becomes the
first four-time winner in
Sebring history, and
Audi becomes the first
diesel-powered car in

12 Hou
with


the world to win a major sports,
car race.
"Fantastic job. Audi R10
TDI, here we go!" Kristensen
-radioed his crew as he crossed
the finish line.
It was widely believed that
the German automaker would
emerge victorious heading into
Saturday's event, based partly
on the unmatched success of its
.predecessor, the Audi R8, and
the fact that McNish set a new
track record during Thursday's
qualifying session.
The Dyson Lolas and the
new Porsche RS Spyders were


thought to be Audi's main com-
petition, but it was Audi's race
to lose.
The German manufacturer
suffered a major setback in the
.'Rice' fourth hout, as the No. I
machine piloted by Emanuele
Pirro, Frank Biela and Marco
Werner was knocked out of the
Race with cooling problems.
With its hopes resting solely
on the No. 2 car, Audi pushed
on in unfamiliar territorN. as
both entries have earned podi-
um finishes since the turn of the
century.
The No. 2 car built a
six-lap lead h.ialfa\
through the endurance
classic, a pace that
would have challenged
the 39-year record of
largest margin of victoryy
(12 laps in 1967).

urs wins Working to overcome a
four. rough qiulif ing speed
(13.633 mph on. its only lap)
due to a punctured tire, the No.
37 Lola B05/40 rebounded
from starting in the back of the
field to earning a LMP2 class
win and take second overall.
Taking second in the LMP1
class and fifth overall was the
No. 16 Dyson Lola B06/10
driven by James Weaver, ButCh
Leitzinger and Andy Wallace.'
No other P1 car finished in the
top 20.

Wildcats slip past

Sebring once again
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
WAUCHULA You don't always need that,
big hit to win the game.
Cody Gullatt scored the go-ahead run for
Hardee in the bottom of the sixth inning on a
Hardee walk, a stolen base and a pair of
passed balls and pitcher Will
Krause made the 4-3 lead stand in
the seventh as the Wildcats got
Sebring their second one-run win of the
season over the Streaks.
3 ? Gullatt's trip around the bases
was a fitting capper to a game that
saw more than its share of gift runs, with all of
Sebring's scores being unearned 'and most of
Hardee's runs coming after some help from the
Streaks' defense.
"Both teams tried so hard and when you try so

Newman adds to star
power on Saturday
Patrick Dempsey wasn't the
only Hollywood star to make an
appearance at the 12 Hours
this year. Paul Newman
watched a portion of the Race
on Saturday with American Le
Mans Series founder Dr. Don
Panoz, Panoz Auto
Development President Dan
Panoz and Race grand marshal
Dempsey.
Newman, a nind-time Oscar
nominee and winner for Best
Actor in 1986's "Color of
Money," is a former competitor
at Sebring. He drove a Porsche
S 911S in 1977 with Bill
Freeman. Newman also fin-
ished second at the 1979 24
N,. .s,;, Hours of Le Mans in a Porsche
935 for Dick Barbour Racing
with Barbour and Rolf
Stommelen.,
Early problems
The first car to drop out of
the 12 Hours of Sebring was
not the car that finished in last
The No. 26 Saleen went
behind the wall for good three
hours and 36 minutes into the
Race, which was just two,min-
utes before the No. 51 Saleen
dropped out of the running.
Both of those cars, however,
turned more laps than the No.
10 Miracle Motorsports
Courage, which finished in last
place with just 62 laps due to a
gearbox problem (see next
i item) and was the third car offi-
cially out of the race at the 4:17
mark.
Frantic preparations
There was a lot of work
going on in the Paddock by
several crews to get cars ready
for the 12 Hours.
The No. 79 J3 Racing
Porsche 911, which slid back-
wards into the wall at Turn 15
on Tuesday, was built from a
tub to a fully functional race car
by four crew, including team
manager Martin Plummer, in
19 hours by pulling an all-
nighter.and was on the grid for
the start of the Race.
The No. 85 Spyker, which hit
the exact same section of the
wall during qualifying on
Thursday, was also repaired
and made the start of the Race,
although it had to start from
the pits,
-The miracle that KUMHO and
Miracle Motorsports were hop-
ing for arrived at Sebring about
7 p.m. Friday night from
England in the form of a new
Hewland gearbox.

Challenge

Auberlen


dominates


in Touring
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bill Auberlen,
of Rolling Hills Estates, Calif.,
set a new lap record and won
the season-opening roind of the
2006 SCCA Pro Racing SPEED
World Challenge Touring Car
season, taking the checkered
flag by 0.829 seconds in his No.
2 BMW 325i over Randy Pobst.
Pierre Kleinubing finished
third.
Starting. from the pole,
Auberlen withstood an immedi-
ate, unexpected charge from
Seth Thomas, who shot from
his fifth starting position in his
No. 38 BMW 325i to challenge
for the lead going into the first
turn. Auberlen shut the door
without incident and moved
away as Thomas battled for sec-
ond behind.
Thomas then dropped a
wheel off the course on the sec-
ond lap of the 17-lap race,
which allowed Pobst (No. 73
Mazda 6), Kleinubing (No. 42
Acura TSX) and Charles
Espenlaub (No. 97 Mazda 6), to
move by him and battle for sec-
ond as Auberlen built a two-
,second lead that he maintained
for much of the race..
Pobst made an attempt to
catch the quicker Auberlen in
the last few laps, closing the
leader's gap to under a second,
but wasn't able -to catch up
completely.
"I think this year at Sebring
was very fast compared to other
years," said Auberlen, who set a
new race lap record of 2:20.562
(94.762 mph) on the fourth lap
after set a new qualifying mark
the day before. "The weather
has been a little cooler, and the
track seemed to be a little
quicker.
"The car loves Sebring, and I
li:,e Sebring."

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Bill Auberlen celebrates his SPEED World Challenge Touring race
win Friday.


Sebring was a redemption of
sorts for Pobst, who held a siz-
able lead well into the the same
race last year before a malfunc-
tioning fuel pump ended his
day. With Thomas ahead of him
off the start, Pobst said he had
to win that battle before he
could ever focus on catching
Auberlen.
"It was a priority to get by
him," Pobst said. "Seth was
doing a great job, he qualified
well. But, he was a little conser-
vative and was a little slow in a
couple of corners. That whole
time, he was ... letting Billy
start to get a gap between me
and Pierre and Charles and
tighten the pack.
"Seth made the mistake
going into Turn 11.. and I call


the pass I made a judo pass,
where you use your opponent's
momentum against them. He
just made it easy for me that
way."
Kleinubing climbed up to
third behind Auberlen and
Pobst when Thomas dropped
back, and the Brazilian driver
was never challenged from
behind for the remainder of the
race.
Jeff Altenburg finished
fourth in his No. 72 Mazda 6
after starting ninth and reigning
SCCA SPEED Touring Car
drivers' champion Peter-
Cunningham was fifth in his
No. 1 Acura TSX.
The Touring Car race, will be
broadcast 'on` SPEED Channel
at 3 p.m. today o.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Michael
McCann, of North Canton,
Ohio, earned the first win of his
SCCA Pro Racing SPEED
World Challenge career, taking
Friday's SCCA SPEED GT race
at Sebring by 11.571 seconds in
his No. 82 Viper.
Reigning GT drivers' cham-
pion Andy Pilgrim was second
for the third year in a row at
Sebring in his No. 1 Cadillac
CTS-V, and Bob Woodhouse
finished third in the-No. 13
Viper the highest finish of his
World Challenge career.
Admitting on St. Patrick's
Day in the post-race press con-
ference that he was, in fact,
Irish, McCann caught a lucky
break before the 20-lap, 74-
mile rate even began as polesit-
ter Leighton Reese sustained a
mechanical failure with his No.
6 Corvette as the field began its
formation lap.
Unable to continue, Reese
vacated the top spot on the grid,
leaving McCann as the only car
on, the front row when the race
started.
McCann took advantage of
thai opportunity and then bat-
tled Lou Gigliotti's No. 28
Corvette C6. Gigliotti took the
point on lap tm\o and looked to


be on his way to victory until
lap 15, when a plume of smoke
trailed the right exhaust bank of
the Corvette, and Gigliotti's day
was done.
From there, McCann never
looked back, driving away for
his first win, averaging a record
100.406 mph.
"I think I'm more Irish today
than I've ever been," McCann
said. "You work so hard to put
yourself in this position, to get
to the podium. Sometimes, you
need a lot. You need some luck.
Sometimes you need the big
guy upstairs to shine, on you,
and he shined on me today.
"It didn't take Lou long to
get on my butt, and he was fast..
It was a shame, I'm assuming
he had a motor problem or
something, but he ended up get-
ting by me, and I followed him.
"It was just fortunate that I
ended up pulling my weight
today."
Pilgrim began his 2006 sea-
son in the same manner that his
SPEED GT drivers' champi-
onship-winning 2005 played
out running a consistent race
and finishing high. Being close
to another win but not getting it,
Pilgrim said, might be more of
an issue if he didn't have some
aliread\ impressive credentials.


"If I hadn't already won a
championship where you win
seven out of 10 races, which I
have, and eight poles out of 10
races, which I did ... I might
think about it."
Pilgrim also said that his
consistency was due, in part, to
Team Cadillac's race strategy.
"We have to be really smooth
in the first' five laps," Pilgrim
said. "And at the middle, if you
don't get a lot of pressure (from
other competitors), you can
save your tires in the middle of
the race. I really wasn't pres-
sured through the middle of the
race, and although I had noth-
ing for Mike, I knew Bob was
sort of catching me a little bit,
but I was trying to save the tires
until the last. five laps.
"Then the crew just told me
to push, push, push, push
because Bob was less than four
seconds behind me. So I was
able to run a little bit quicker to
the end."
The SCCA SPEED GT race
will be broadcast on SPEED
Channel at 4 p.m. today. Round
Two of the 2006 SCCA Pro
Racing SPEED World
Challenge Championships is set
for March 31-April. 2 at. the
Honda Grand Prix of St.
Petersburg.

The 54th Annual Mobil 1 10 Hours of Sebrina


Courtney captures


Panoz Series win


By JACK HARRIS
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING A small Irish
shamrock on the driver's door
may or may not have brought
Jeff Courtney good luck on
Friday, but a caution flag after
seven laps certainly helped him
to.overall victory in the Panoz
Racing Series winter finale on
Friday.
It was the second successive
win of the Winter Series in GT
for Courtney of Slinger, Wis.
Pole-sitter Andrew
Charbonneau got off to a quick
lead, but an early caution forced
a restart and Courtney grabbed
the lead and sped to the victory.
Charlie Putman was second
and Brian Dolan third.
Courtney put in 18 laps in
46.57.791 minutes in the timed
race.
Cathy Zeno was first in the
GTS ;class with a time of
48.25.859 time. David
Robertson was second and
Terry Brown was third.
Courtney said the car han-
dled perfectly.
"A tool box came loose and
broke a suit-cooling hose and
started splaying water all over
me," he said, but he was able to
laugh abbut it because he
already was bathed in sweat in-
the closed-canopy car.
Charbonneau led the first seven
laps, then Courine\ took over
and x as -ne' er caught.-
"I had a terrible start and
used a lot of rubber to try to
catch Charbonneau but luckily
got the double yellow but he
was fast.," Courtney said. "I
was trying to keep the tires
under it and wasn't driving as
fast.as I could at the end."
Series rules allow only one
set of tires per weekend for,


practice, qualifying and the
race.
"(Courtney), goi out in front
of me and slowed down and I
still couldn't catch him," said
fourth-place finisher Chuck
Vanscoy.
John Linster, of Calgary,
Alberta, Canada, won the series
championship despite finishing
ninth overall Friday.
Patrick Dempsey, star of
ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," fin-
ished 16th overall and 13th in
GT. The former Panoz Racing
School student and a series vet-
eran was the grand marshal of
the 12 Hours of Sebring on
Saturday.
"This is my first time here
and I got in yesterday
(Thursday), got in five laps of
qualifying and it was my first
time to run the track," Dempsey
said. "I got a really good start
-- about seven people off the
top but the track started to
really beat me up. It's a tough
ride but a great track, in fact."
Dempsey says he loves the
course because of its history,
"but it's rough and Turn 17 real-
ly beats the heck out of you," a
sentiment hundreds of drivers
have expressed over the years.
"I definitely did not want to
be here this week and not be in
a car race, and I did all right,"
he said. .
S-\i obiccli\e was.to finish
the race -and get as much seat
time as possible."
Bonilla wins Star Mazda
Making his series debut at his
home track, Orlando's Gerardo
Bonilla pulled away to victory
in his Skip Barber
Racing/Carmela Sausage
Mazda in round one of the Star
Mazda Championship present-
ed by Goodyear Friday after-

noon; Joining Bonilla on the
podium at the famed 3.7-mile
road course were Darrniel
Herrington and Adrian Carrio.
"I've been teaching other
drivers at 'the Skip Barber
Racing School for so long and
wondering when it was going to
be my turn, and I'm finally get-
ting my chance," anr excited
Bonilla exclaimed.
"It's my first race in the-
series, and to win it feels amaz-
ing."
The race, originally sched-
uled for 20-laps, became a
timed 45-minute race due to
several caution periods in the
first half of the event.
Daniel Herrington, of
Winston-Saleni, North
Carolina, also making his series
debut at Sebring, drove a smart
3 J.


race to finish second after lining
up tenth on the grid driving the
Bluetooth SIG AIM Autosport
Mazda.
Roush GT3 Cup race
Kevin, Roush drove awAy
from the field for a dominating
19,744-second win in Friday's
IMSA GT3 Cup race.
Nathan Swartzbaugh fin-
ished a distant second, with
Bryce Miller another two sec-
ond- back in third.
Roush turned the quickest lap
of the 21-lap event, a 2;11.030
on his llth trip around the
famed circuit.
The top 16 finishers were all
in the GT3-7 class.
Dino Loles was the GT3-6
winner, finishing in 17th place
overall, 1:42.063 behind Roush.


Panoz 'honored'


to be among Hall


of Fame inductees


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING When he pur-
chased Sebring International
Raceway in 1998, Dr. Don
Panoz said he just wanted to
make a difference. Friday, he
was .honored for that ... and
much, much more.
Dr. Panoz was one of six
2006 inductees into Sebring
International Raceway Hall of
Fame. The founder of the
American Le Mans Series
joined a prestigious list of
names, all of which are firmly
entrenched in sports car lore.
"Sebring is the grand old
lady of sports car racing, but
she needed some attention,"
Panoz said during his accept-
ance speech on the eve of the
54th ruining of the Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring.
"My goal was to make a dif-
ference, and I think I have
accomplished that."
Three-time Sebring winner
Phil Hill, two-time winners
Brian Redman and Bob Akin,
three-time winning car owner
Briggs Cunningham and veter-
an race official Charlie
Earwood also joined the presti-
gious Sebring, Hall of Fame this
year.
Panoz is widely regarded as
the savior of sports car racing in
North America: In 1999, he
took Sebring International
Raceway to a new level, initiat-
ing an improvement, program
that resulted among other
things in the new pit complex,
complete with VIP suites and
an expanded media center; and
the, Chateau Elan hotel, which
overlooks the Sebring's famed
Hairpin turn.


My
goal

was to

. make a

difference, and I

think I have

accomplished

that.'

DR. DON PANOZ,
Raceway owner

That same year he founded
the American Le Mans Series,
reviving international sports car
racing in the United States, and
at the same time campaigning
his namesake cars that proved
they could compete and win
against the world's best.
: He has the second longest
tenure of any Sebring promoter;
only founder Alec Ulmann was
at the helm longer.
A pharmaceutical entrepre-
neur who has found success in a
variety of industries, his contri-
butions to sports car racing in
general, and Sebring in particu-
lar, place him among the sports
most positive influences.
"Sebring is the place where
all the legends have raced -
Andretti, Moss, Gurney, Rahal,
Phil Hill the list goes on and
on," Panoz said. "I'm honored
to be among those great names
inducted into the Sebring Hall
of Fame."

The team's gearbox housing developed a crack
that could not be repaired during the Thursday
morning practice session. After lots of phone
calls to Hewland in England and Courage in
France, Miracle arranged to have a new gearbox
loaded onto an American Airlines flight bound
from Heathrow to Miami. Miracle owner John
Macaluso then chartered a small plane from
Miami to Sebring to get the gearbox to the track.
"We figured that in the best-case scenario, the
gearbox wouldn't arrive here until about 11 p.m.,
but everything went smoothly through customs
in Miami," said Macaluso.
' The new gearbox wasn't the answer, however,

C6-R driven by Olivier Beretta,
Oliver Gavin and Jan
Magnussen, rediscovered its
winning form in holding off
reigning class winner Aston
Martin. The victory gives'
Beretta 25 career ALMS victo-
ries, the most in its eight-year
history. Magnussen also has
won at least one race in each of
the eight years of the American
Le Mans, Series.
The rivalry between the
American and British manufac-
turers continues to gain strength
after Aston's return to road rac-
ing last year, as Corvette's only
loss in 2005 was at the historic
Sebring circuit. When the No.
007 Aston Machine won the
GT1 pole on Thursday, the
stage was set for a memorable
battle.
,Judging by the back-and-
forth nature of the racing
between the four cars, particu-
larly the fight between the No.
4 'Vette and the No. 009 Aston,
the rest of the 2006 American
Le Mans Series schedule fig-
ures to be worth watching.
The LMP2 class was billed


the. team's day.

ering he had only five laps of practice and quali-
fying before the finale of the Paloz Racing Series
support race.

tive was to finish the race and get as much seat

DRAGONS
Continued from IE
Allison, help your own-cause!",
Gilde drilled a two-out single
right up the third base line. Sam
Gilliard then stepped to the
plate and hit a deep fly ball -
just inches from a home run off
- the fence, and Ashley
Paeplow capped off the rally
with a two RBI double, scoring
Gilliard and Gilde.
With the defense comfort-
able behind her. .Gilde carried a
2-0 lead into the fourth.
Two quickly fly outs in the top
of the fourth had Mulberry
i11niii[,ir6il., aware that their
chances were slipping away.
Then a walk and an RBI single
from '\lhon Simmons brought
in Ashley Tetil for the Panthers
first run. After another walk,
the game's second smash off
the fence was delivered by
Kayla Collins to make it 3-2.
A fantastic play by Tracy
"Tinker" Bozeman of Lake
Placid ended the fourth as she
caught a tricky fly ball to left
then gunned the ball to third for
the final out.
The back-and-forth antics
continued in the fifth where
Lake Placid started'off with a
Megan Spurlock single then
tied the game with another hit
from Gilde. Moving over on an
error, Gilde then stole third and
scored on a wild pitch.


But the Green Dragons
would never lead again.
Miscues in -both throwing
and fielding punctuated the
scattered Panther hits and by
the time it was all said and
done, Mulberry had built a
seven-run lead. Unfortunately,
defensive troubles have carried
over for Lake Placid from last
year into this year and played a
key role versus Mulberry.
"We always have one really
bad inning, and I was hoping
that inning was going to be
when (Mulberry) got three
runs," sighed coach Marilyn
Jones. "But it wasn't. We still
had worse to come."
Jones takes pride in knowing
that at this point, attention to
detail has translated into visible
improvement and a three wins
already this year after just one
last season.
She is also realistic.
"The girls are improving.
We're getting better as time
goes on but we'll still lose a
few at the end of the season so,
hopefully we can pull it togeth-
er and- get a few wins before
that happens. We played Avon
Park (Thursday) night and
played great for three and a half
innings, then came the eight
runs," she said.
"We just have to get better on
defense and what, little offense
we have if we can just string it
together, I'd be happy."

hard, easy things become difficult," said Hardee
coach Steve Rewis, whose team improved to 10-3
overall and took over first place with a 5-1 mark in
District 10-4A. "I think there was some of that onr
4 both sides, and it showed."
( Krause, who shook off being hit in the left arrn
by a pitch in the first inning, struck out four in the
complete-game effort to get the win and a lot of
praise from his coach.
"Will Krause and his 140-pound self might be-
.about 120 pounds of heart," Rewis said. "He bat-
tled and got a break in the end."
Sebring starting pitcher Chaz Abeln struck out
10, but two hit batters, two wild pitches and
Robbie Abbott's single to left added up to a 2-0
-Hardee lead in the first inning.
Sebring (9-2, 4-2) used three Hardee errors in.
the top of the third to tie the score as Ryan
"-Thorlton and Chris Welborn both crossed the plate-
when Welborn's steal of second turned into two-
miscues one by the catcher and one by the cen-
ter fielder.
Three straight two-out hits by the Wildcats put
them back in front in the fourth. Justin Altman
started the rally with a single and scored on-
Weston Palmer's single.
Abeln made it 3-3 when he singled and later
scored from third on a wild relay throw following
a shallow fly to left, but Gdillatt's run in the sixth.
proved to be enough when the Streaks left twod
runners on in the top of the seventh.
"Any time you get a chance to beat a pitcher the
quality Chaz is and a team the quality of Sebring,
you take it any way you can get it," Rewis said.
The win puts the Wildcats in a familiar place -A
at the top of the district standings. But Rewis said
he hopes this year's team' doesn't continue the
trend of being the top seed in the .district only to
miss the playoffs with a loss in the district tourna-
ment.
SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun "We're trying to be better in the end," he said
Chaz Abeln of Sebring slides underneath Hardee third baseman Lance Benavides "We've proventhe past two years that winning the
Friday night. regular season in the district doesn't mean much."
