Board seats, NRPI


contract being


challenged by suit

News-Sun
SEBRING Sun 'N Lake supervisors are facing another
pending lawsuit.
If allegations are true, every decision made by the Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Improvement District supervisors could be
void.
Supervisors discussed the lawsuit briefly on Friday with dis-
trict residents at the end of the supervisors meeting, which ended
abruptly when Rdbert Severino, board president, stopped debate
and called to adjourn.
A lawsuit from last year challenges validity of the board and
its contract with Natiionil Recreational Properties Inc.
SAccording to auiorne\ IJ:nes McCollum of Sebring, when for-
mer super\ iscor' negotiated the contract with NRPI, meetings
were not public, noticed and minutes not kept. Therefore, any
business that transpired i, void, including the contract -with
NRPI.
If that's true, the company should have paid as.se.nients on its
properties, which the contract excused it from doing. It would
also have had no vote in l.indo owner elections, McColluhm aiid

SEBRING Just by doing what kids do -
playing the, more than 3,000 teensen" of
Highlands County have a chance this summer to,
win a handful of prizes from bicycles to iPods.
Derek Carlton, chronic disease health promo-
tion and education program coordinator for the
Highlands County Health Department, unveiled
the Verb Summer Scorecard program that will
entice 9- to 13-year- olds to be healthy, without
telling them they're being healthy.
"A lot of kids seem drawn to more sedentary
play,'" Carlton said, citing video games and tele-
vision. "We want to draw them to active play."
The goal, Carlton said, is to encourage play
without the lecturing aspect of why it's good for
them.
The Verb Summer Scorecard will strive to do
this by providing the tweens (targeted because
they are said to be most easily influenced and
most likely to adapt a healthy lifestyle) with a
calendar and scorecard with 24 blanks.
The calendar provides dates and times for cer-
tain activities (discounted bowling prices during
a specific period, for example) and the scorecard
is stamped by a certifying official (as in the
example, after an hour of bowling, an employee
would stamp the individual's card).
The tweens will attempt to fill all 24 spots with
stamps (multiple scorecards can be used if the
'tween is exceptionally active).
At the July 29 grand finale celebration at
Firemen's Field, completed scorecards will go
into a drawing for one of 15 grand prizes, which

to 13-year-olds targeted in the Verb campaign, can
keep track of the ball by coming back to the Web
site.
Carlton is soliciting in the form of donations from
local business sponsors and partners.
Carlton said the prizes will be high dollar
items, to reward the children for their active par-

SBHC unsure of proposed paperwork fixes


* Third in a series
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
The School Board of Highlands
County have long been con-
cerned about the amount of
paperwork teachers, adminis-
trators and school support staffs
have to produce.
The problem is hardly local.
In fact, members of the Florida
Legislature received so much
negative feedback over the last
year, it is moving to re-address
the issue.
Last year school board mem-


bers anticipated the Legislature,
and were ready with a candidate
for the investigative task force
the Legislature later put into
place.
Sebring Middle School lan-
guage arts teacher Sheri Crow's
resume arrived in Tallahassee
before the task force's creation
had even been announced.
She joined a committee of 12
other teachers to trouble shoot
the problem. Most members
were from' larger districts
around the state.
They discovered that paper-
work grows exponentially.


A mandate from the
Legislature goes to the
Department of Education,
which expands the demand
before sending it to districts,
which then call for even more
paper.
The request for one form by
the Legislature, for example,
can grow to become requests
for 16 forms at the classroom
level, Crow told school board
members at a.recent workshop.
She reported that teachers
find Academic Improvement
Plans the most time-consuming,
least useful pieces of paper.


Teachers want the plans
eliminated, especially as data
and textbook content drive
instruction, and the improve-
ment plans are often superflu-
ous.
While supporting paperwork
reduction generally, board
members have specific reserva-
tions about HB 1295, -which is
supposed to correct the prob-
lem.
In the text of the bill the
Legislature calls upon each
school district to form a task
force devoted to reducing paper
and electronic reporting


requirements.
The board has no problems.
with that.
However, the Legislature
also wants the board to hold
public hearings and analysis
relating to excess paperwork
and data collection.
The board feels public hear-
ings would be redundant in
view of the task force creation.
Members feel that in addition to
addressing the problems of
paperwork overload, the task
force would provide the neces-
sary "checks and balances"
needed in finding a cure.


The Legislature is also rec-
ommending that the time-costly
Academic Improvement Plans
and personalized Middle
School Success Plans. currently
in use. be replaced with a plan
to monitor a student's progress.
The board supports the idea,
but the Legislature does not
make clear how such a replace-
ment plan should be construct-
ed, or even who would .be
responsible for its creation.
Board members intend to
make their reservations clear to
legislators during their trip to
Tallahassee later this month.

Red & White Ball now

set for The Candlelight


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The
Candlelight Restaurant has
stepped up to the plate and will
provide the venue for this
year's Red & White Ball. '
Megan Klootwyk, director of
membership and marketing,
and banquet facilities coordina-
tor, said The Candlelight can
accommodate far more than the
270 or more people expected to
attend this year's gala fund-
raiser for the American Red
Cross.
In fact, The Candlelight has
been hosting golf tournaments,
weddings and family parties for
several weekends in a row,
Klootwyk said, and even has
one wedding scheduled in
October for 400 people.
The Red & White Ball will
feature a dance floor in the cen-
ter of the banquet hall, silent
auction items in the banquet
anterooms, around the cash bar
and possibly in the rear dining
area, if necessary.
Klootwyk also said The
Candlelight will have tables out
on the poolside deck for people
wanting to take in the night air.
As with most events, the pool
and palm trees will be lit up.

Caterers of Avon Park will cater

The event will take place at 6
p.m. Saturday, April 15.
Sponsors are on board, Glenn
Fowler with the Red Cross said
Friday, including Linda Cunniff
-of Liberty 1 Home Health Care.
"The Red Cross is used to
responding to emergencies,:
Fowler said. "It's, what we're
doing now."
Originally, Harder Hall was
slated as the location for this
year's event, but' Harriman
learned Thursday it would not
be ready in time. Despite the
anticipation of seeing that loca-
tion reopened with a gala event,
Harriman said he's received
very little negative response to
the change of venue.
As reported previously, the
date usually on or the week-
end before St. Valentine's Day
was set on April 15 to
accommodate Harder Hall's
renovation and reopening. .
With tickets already sold and
people scheduled, Harriman
could not reset the date again.
The event starts at 6 p.m.
with dinner scheduled for 7
p.m. GrooVus jazz band will
entertain for the third straight
year, and will feature local sax-

Sun 'N Lake pursues upgrades


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Sun 'N Lake
supervisors are moving forward
with plans to improve water and
roads in the district, and per-
haps create a true town center
for the district, as well.
On Friday, they approved a
traffic plan to send to the coun-
ty, agreed to have district staff
work on a plan with the city of
Avon Park for waste water
treatment, and approved an
$18,000 contract to do a bound-
ary survey of the area around
Lake Grenada.
That survey should tell them
how much land is available for
a proposed town center devel-
opment, which could include
public buildings, a new restau-
rant to replace The Candlelight,
a' new golf clubhouse and pro
shop, recreational areas and
commercial property.
Sun 'N Lake General
Manager Marvin Fischer said
the survey should be done by
mid-May. Another topography
.survey would be needed before
a developer can present an
accurate plan for the area.


Several residents on
Edgewater Drive opposed the
idea at Friday's meeting, saying
they liked having an open area
outside their doors, wanted to
preserve green space and were
told as early as 1980 when they
bought condominiums there,
that the area around the lake
would stay undeveloped.
Supervisor John Negley said-
the district would have to do the
survey to find out how much
land is there and what can be
done. Bob Severino, president.
,of the board of supervisors, was
sure that green space would be
included in the design, but also
said it could include commer-
cial development in a down-
town-type setting..
Supervisor Charles McHale
said the board would consider
people's input in later planning
meetings, while Supervisor
Joely Pollokoff-Collard encour-
aged people to stay involved
with the governmental process.
Water works
Sun 'N Lake is at capacity
now for water treatment and
potable water permits. Fischer
said building a new water treat-

mtent plant has turned out not to
be feasible.
In answer to that, he has spo-
ken with Avon Park City
'Manager C.B. Shirey about
having the district get water
services from the city.
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District has
required the district to have
reclaimed water used on the
golf course by 2009, or not get
its water permit renewed.
Avon Park has a water treat-
ment plant on the northern edge
of the district. Shirey said the,
city is moving to increase
capacity because of its recent
development, so it could help
both of them.
Transportation
The supervisors also
approved a plan to replace the
traffic circles with signalized
intersections. Fischer said the
circle at Sun 'N ,Lake
Boulevard and Ponce de Leon
Boulevard could be done in the
next two years. He also wants to
see Sun 'N Lake Boulevard'
four-laned from Columbus
Boulevard to Balboa
Boulevard.
Pollokoff-Collard asked dis-


trict staff to see if elements of
the. transportation plan. could
get funded under the statewide
Safe Routes to Schools pro-
gram, providing sidewalks and
bike lanes to connect to Sun 'N
Lake Elementary or Hill-Gustat
Middle School.
In addition, citizens asked to
have the speed bumps removed
or kept off Grenada Boulevard,
Ponce de Leon Boulevard,
Columbus Boulevard, and
Matanzas Drive, citing the fact
that the main thoroughfares
would flow better without,
them.
However, at least one resi-
dent said the bumps have
slowed traffic down. Without
them, the district would need
more deputies writing tickets.

"Se\en Brides for Seven

Judge orders prosecutors


to review Meus case


Changing landscape


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Jean Claude
Meus is getting another review
of his case.
On Wednesday, Circuit Judge
Robert Doyel ordered the state
attorney's office to review
Meus' case to show if he did not
receive adequate defense repre-
sentation.
According to Chip Thullbery,
spokesman for the state attor-
ney's office in Bartow, Meus'
supporters have a new witness
who they believe may have per-
tinent testimony.
Doyel has ordered prosecu-
tors to find evidence in the
record to show Meus did get a
fair trial. If they can't show this,
Doyel may set an evidentiary
hearing to hear new arguments.
Thullbery said if after that
hearing, the judge finds merit in
Meus' allegations, he could get
a new trial;
Meus, 41, was convicted in
August 2003 of two counts of
vehicular homicide. He was
sentenced on Sept. 13, 2003, to-
two concurrent 15-year sen-

SEBRING While $1.8
million may not buy a lot of
road improvements, it may be
able to fix some trouble spots.
On Monday, Florida
Department of Transportation
officials asked members of
Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development
Initiative to help decide what
would be the best places to fix,
State Road 70.
Susan King, with the FDOT
district office, said the depart-
nient ha. $1.8 million ear-
inairked: io make, safety
improvementn_ on the road, and
asked people at a subcommittee
meeting Monday to give their
input.
Heartland officials' biggest
concerns involved traffic con-
trol at certain intersections, traf-
fic management for the
Okeechobee municipality, and
keeping cars from running off
the road at the few curves along
the 40-mile stretch .between
Arcadia and Brighton.
Signals
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete wants FDOT to add
some additional work to a proj-
ect to replace the signal wires
with mastheads at the U.S.
27/S.R. 70 intersection.
He'd like to have a'master
cabinet installed, which would
allow traffic operations staff to
monitor the signal long-dis-
tance from their George
Boulevard office. If it has a
problem and starts to malfunc-
tion, Gavarrete said they could
then fix it by computer.
He's also asking state offi-
cials to install an uninterrupt-
ible powet supply a power
supply that includes a battery to
maintain power in the event of a
power outage.
It's not really for hurricanes,
he said, but for surges and out-


tences.
On the night of May 11,
2001, driving east on State
Road 64 in a semitrailer loaded
with tomatoes, he swerved his
semitrailer to miss hitting a van
head-on after allegedly dodging
another car at the S.R. 64 and
State Road 636 junction.
His loaded trailer tipped over
and crushed the van, killing
Nona Moore, 40, and her
daughter, Lindsey, 8. Two other
daughters survived the wreck.
Since the trial, Moore's sis-
ters, Beth Jahna of Avon Park
and Dana Christenson of
Tampa, have come out in sup-
port of Meus, saying he doesn't
deserve a prison sentence for an
accident. Meus' fiancee,
Rebecca Chenoweth, has said
he didn't get adequate represen-
tation at the trial.
In addition to concerns about'
evidence that she said was not
or should not have been
allowed, Chenoweth has said
two jurors "high-fived" each
other when selected to be on the
jury, as if they were, glad to be


ages that last less than three
hours so sheriff's deputies
"don't have to fly down there to
direct traffic."
Turn lanes
Another problem for
Highlands County is the curve
just before crossing the bridge
over the Kissimmee River into
Okeechobee County. '
Gavarrete said the restaurant
on the north side of the road is
where the county stations water
and ice after hurricanes, and
gets a lot of traffic.. He' and
other counts officials. would
like to hlte FDOT impro e \ i_.-
ibilitz there and pro\ ide a turn
lane.
Aside from that, the county
would like to have street lights
and turn lanes installed at the
S.R. 70 intersections with
County Roads 29 And 721,, and
at Placid Lakes Boulevard/
Jefferson Avenue.
Still, with only $600,000 to
spend in each county, that does-
n't buy much road, Gavarrete
said. I
Okeechobee County
Commissioner Elvie Pose\; said
his biggest concern is turn lanes
on the road where it goes
through the town of

selected.
Even Moore's sisters said
they believed the verdict
reflected what the jury thought
the family wanted.
The latest motion, a motion
for post-conviction release,
requests the state attorney's
office to show cause that Meus -
was treated fairly.
Recent news reports have
compared his wreck with that of
truck driver Thomas W. Smith
of Bainbridge, Ga. On May 8,
2002, his semitrailer slammed
into a line of cars stopped on
U.S. 27 at Sun .'N Lake
Boulevard in Sebring.
Benjamin Smith, 82, trapped in
his burning car, later died from
his injuries.
Thomas Smith allegedly told
witnesses he fell asleep. Meus
told investigators he was not a
tired and did not fall asleep,
although a trooper testified in
court that he did.
Thomas Smith's punishment
was a fine for mechanical prob-
lems and a ticket for careless
driving.


Okeechobee.
Without it, he said, there's a
strong possibility of T-bone
wrecks on that stretch of road.
Curves
Nearly 40 miles of the road
between Arcadia and
Okeechobee County is straight,
with few variations.
However, DeSoto County
Commissioner Ronald Neads
said there is a slight .bend in'
S.R. 70 near the Highlands-
DeSoto county line. It's not
sharp enough to even warrant:a
warning sign, but eight years
ago. five people died in a head-
on collision, he said.
Richard Gillen% after 'with
FDOT said from'his studies, the
driver should have been able to
see to pass, but aside fr6m the
fact that one driver was 18, it's
hard to derive much from crash
reports.
L.K. Nandam, engineer with
FDOT, said there has to be a
trend for a spot to be a serious
problem, but promised they
would look at it.
That road can be mesmeriz-
ing, Neads said, and anything to
let people know of any slight
change in the road would be
helpful.

All week crews, bulldozers, truck,.storm pipes and huge mounds of soil have covered the space
between South Commerce Street and Magnolia Street to South Orange Street in downtown
Sebring. Two old homes with unique facades of Pea Rock from Georgia river beds were demol-
ished to make room for the large parking lot under construction. The lot will provide much
needed parking for Highlands County's expanding government service center.





Boat tips over on river


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LORIDA An overloaded
airboat overturned Thursday
morning on the banks .of the
Kissimmee River in Highlands
County.
Three people were transport-
ed to Highlands Regional
Medical Center, where they
weretreated and released for
minor injuries, spokesman Gary
Morris, of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission, said
Friday.,
"Everybody was able to
swim to the shore with no prob-
lem," he said, explaining that


the Winter Haven-base.d,
Applied Aquatic Management-
owned craft was 15 feet from
shore in the area of MacArthur
Run.
Two of the capsized passen-.
gers walked to the main river
channel, where they were
picked up by a Southe-.t
Florida Water' Management
District tour boat.
An airboat of that size reach-
es maximum capacity at about
four people, Morris' said.
Bruce Waldron, 33, of
Okeechobee, operated the boat
and charges are pending the
completion of the investigation.


"He was picking people up,"
Morris said. "They were
employees of Applied Aquatic
and were spraying for hydrilla."
Morris didn't know whether
they were spraying from shore
or other water craft.
Names weren't. available for
the three victims who were
treated at the hospital, Morris
said, because, "they are not
legal aliens."
Morris said he didn't know
whether ,that aspect of the
investigation would be turned
over to the Immigration and
Naturalization Ser% ice.

V Highlands County report

Thomas charged England charged


with multiple

forgeries
SEBRING When a
man tried to cash 10 forged
postal money orders at the .
local Amscot, he was imme-
diately detained.
Highlands County sher-
iff's deputies arrived and
arrested Kenneth William
Thomas, 18, of Sebring, and
charged him with 10 counts
of forger and 10 counts of
uttering a forged instrument.
Bail was set at $20,000.
He had gone to'Amscot at
1157 U.S. 27 S., Sebring, at
6:59 p.m. March 18.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, he told
deputies he received the
money orders in a Priority
Mail envelope that day. Each
one was dated Feb. 28 and
made out to Thomas for
$850, for a total of $8,500.
According to reports, he
told deputies he wasn't
expecting any payment. The
envelope had a return
address of John Burman in
California, someone he
allegedly did not know.
Allegedly, he thought they
might be fake.
When he arrived at
Amscot, however, he handed
the money orders to the
cashier and allegedly never
asked her to see if they were
forged.
He signed the back of
each one and put his right
thumb print on the back,
reports said..
The alleged postal orders

SEBRING For one not-
so-lucky individual, losing 30-
40 pounds could net a three-
day, two-night resort package
and $1,000 spending money.
John Manjarres, certified fit-
ness trainer and owner of 180-
degree Fitness, is challenging
new customers to commit to a
lifestyle change.
"That's the only difference,"
Manjarres said, explaining that
the winner of his contest will
rely on personal fortitude not
chance. "The people who make
that lifestyle change have it in
their mind that they're going to
do it."
What he's offering is the
winner's choice of one of sever-
al vacation packages plus the
spending cash.
What he's asking, demanding
really, is a six-month commit-
ment of three training sessions
per week.
At $60-75 per session,
Manjarres' services don't come
cheap. A price tag can't be put
on his final demand attitude.
"There has to be a desire to
lose," he said, explaining that
he screens potential clients.
"The psychology behind each
person's reasons' vary. I try to
understand their reasons for
doing this."
Wh.ter er their incentive -
walking across, a parking lot
without shortness of breath or
fitting into clothes -
Manjarres personalizes each
person's training plan, tuning
into the individual's "motiva-
tional cues.""
A year ago, Ed Nichols, of
Sebring, spent Easter Sunday in
the hospital.
"It scared the devil out of
me," Nichols said Wednesday,
after breaking a sweat on a
treadmill at the 180-degre'e stu-
dio. "I don't want to do that
,& 1a n." ,, ,
He was diagnosed 'with'
chronic bronchitis during. that


hospital visit. Several members
of his family, including his par-
ents and a sister, died in their
50s and 60s, he said.
"I want to live a good life and
this is helping me," Nichols,
who was referred to Manjarres
by satisfied Manjarres cus-
tomers, said.
After helping his clients
reach their immediate goals,
Manjarres encourages them
focus on the long term by join-
ing a local gym and by continu-
ing to apply what they've
learned.
"You hear a lot of different


things about 'how to- lose
weight," he said. "Ninety-per-
cent of it is nutritionn"
Not a licensed dietitian, most
of Manjarres' nutrition knowl-
edge was learned through trial
and error, on himself he lost
his weight about five years ago.
"A lot of it is just a joy for me
to do," he said of the nutrition
seminars he gives to civic
organizations.
The 180-degree Fitness com-
petition deadline registration is
April 14. The contest will last
through October.

Over 1.8 Million in 2005*
*(per MLS Stats)


JI'I


Jo Ann is a team player and always brings a positive attitude, a joy to work with in all situations. A co-worker said to me the other day "I bet
you wish you had 10 other agents just like her" and I said "I sure do!".
&ob /'dWa Broker/Owner
On January 16, 2005 my wife, Sue, and I decided to sell our condo and purchase another. I contacted Jo Ann Sutton from Ridge Real Estate. I
knew Jo Ann had just begun selling real estate. Her outgoing personality indicated to me that we would not be disappointed. In the space of 17
days our condo sold and the first condo we looked at was purchased. Any information that Sue and I needed was given or furnished quickly. We
were totally satisfied with the personal attention Jo Ann gave us and also with Ridge Real Estate. As a result, I have no reservations in recom-
mending Jo Ann and Ridge Real Estate.
Paaulc/lter^
Jo Ann was very professional, friendly, helpful ... and especially patient with us. We were so determined that we wanted a house absolutely
unlike what we bought She didn't give up when we couldn't find exactly what we thought we wanted. Most other agents probably would have
thrown up their hands in despair, but Jo Ann hung right in there and we finally did find a home that met our needs.
Cadk & Ja&e K&r,
We put our home up for sale, but unfortunately we listed it with the wrong realtor, so that was time wasted for us. When our first listing was
up, we changed to Ridge Real Estate and Jo Ann Sutton was great. She did everything she said she would do, plus extras as we were up north.
She faxed or phoned us weekly to let us know what was going on. The sale was handled very well and we were very happy. When people ask us
who sold our house we say proudly "Jo Ann Sutton" We are so pleased that Jo Ann won the Rookie of the Year. Great job Jo Ann.

Gallagher announces consumer checklist


Pro-consumer
measure will
empower
homeowners
TALLAHASSEE Thanks
to changes to Florida law
pushed by Tom Gallagher,
Florida's chief financial officer,
homeowners now have another
resource they can rely on to pre-
pare for, future hurricanes:
Insurance companies in Florida
will now be required to include
a simple checklist on the front
of all homeowners policies
delivered in Florida. The
checklist will make it easier for
policyholders to discuss their
coverage with their insurance
agent and will clearly' show if
they have enough coverage to
rebuild after a catastrophe.
Gallagher ,along with
Governor Bush and the other
members of the Financial


Services Commission approved
the final checklist for use. All
insurance companies will have
to have their agents include a
completed checklist on the front
of every homeowners, mobile
homeowners, or condominium
insurance policy.
"This checklist' is another
important step toward continu-
ing to create a culture of pre-
paredness in Florida,"
Gallagher said. "By arming
Floridians with the tools and
information they need to pre-
-pare their finances; their homes,
and their families, we can help
reduce the toll future storms
may take on our state."
The consumer checklist is
just one of the pro-consumer
reforms that Gallagher success-
fully fought for in the wake of
the 2004 hurricane season.
Gallagher has renewed his calls
for more pro-consumer meas-
ures in the wake of the 2005
hurricane season, and is work-
ing with the Florida Legislature


. v


be accompanied by a yes or no
on whether it is covered. Any
additional property or liability
coverage must also be listed
along with the dollar amount of.
the coverage. Floridians with
insurance questions or concerns
can call 'Gallagher's. consumer
hotline at 1-800-342-2762 or go
to www.fldfs.com.. The check-
list can be found at
www.floir.com/pcfr/Documents/
OIR-Bl-1670.xls.


to enact comprehensive reforms
to Florida's insurance market.
One provision of the new
checklist requires insurance
companies to list not only the
percentage of a hurricane'
deductible but also list the actu-
al dollar amount in large type.
Gallagher successfully pushed a
law limiting hurricane:
deductibles to one per season,
after some victims of multiple
hurricanes discovered they
were responsible for up to three
deductibles. Also, the dollar
amount all coverage must be
listed in large type, including
the coverage limits for the main
dwelling, all detached struc-
tures, personal property and
contents. .The checklist must
detail the amount of living
expenses that will be paid if the
policyholder has to leave their
home and the amount of time
the expense money will be paid.
the checklist also contains a`
list of perils that could damage
a residence and each item must

Carlton .wants parents to be
aware of the program to encour-
age their children's participa-
tion and to seek further partner-
ships from the community in
financial or logistical support.
"Highlands (County) is not
known for having a lot of things
for kids to do," he said. "We're
always looking at that and try-
ing to bring activities to them."


Some of the activities sug-
gested in the program, such as
bowling or golfing, have fees
associated with them. Carlton
anticipates these fees being
reduced or waived for program
participants.
But, other activities are being
planned that will be provided
for free, such as the 20 Street
Team events and the Longest
Day of Play, June 21, when
events will be scheduled in the
three municipalities of
Highlands County.
June 21, the Summer

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Cows may look

calm, but they

don't like much
Growing up in big cities, by
the age of 6 I knew more
about hailing a cab, than I did
about where milk came from.
Farms existed only in my
imagination and they looked
like something out of
"Charlotte's Web;" any con-
cept of milk coming out of a.
cow was purely theoretical.
So you can imagine the ctil-
ture shock when I recently vis-
ited Bishop Brothers Dairy and
'discovered the world of dairy
farming up close and personal;
it was fascinating, and a little
intimidating.
Right away I saw, forgive
me, but I saw that cows aren't
the smartest animal on the
farm.
Nick Bishop, who is a
fourth generation dairy farmer,
was diplomatic. "Cows are
creatures of habit," is how he
put it. They don't take well to
,changes in routine, sudden '
noises, or different people.
Bishop has seen cows spook
at the sight of an empty plastic
grocery bag blowing across a
pasture.
For sure I was aware of
some of them watching me
with an intense stare of curios-
ity, as if trying to fit me into
the picture.

Cows get a vacation; humans don't


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LORIDA Despite the fact that
cows are living, breathing creatures with
something like a mind of their own, they
also are cash on the hoof.
That is, a cow has to earn her living.
To do that a cow should look like
she's hungry.
Nick Bishop, a fourth generation
dairy farmer, put it this way. "If a cow is
putting her feed onto her back, instead of
into her udder," she ends up paying a
price by shifting from dairy cow to beef.
At Bishop Brothers Dairy about 300
cows a year are fatten to that fate.
As each cow weighs on average 1,300
pounds, that means Bishop's dairy pro-
duces about 390,000 pounds of beef a
year. It's not prime, but more than many
ranches produce.
And Bishop's is a small dairy.
But Bishop loves his cows, which is
why he loves to see them hard at work
- lying down, and chewing their cud -
because a cow should always be eating
or processing her last meal into milk.
However, in order to produce milk, a
cow also has to be lactating, which
means. she is always being bred, or is
pregnant, or is recovering from giving
birth.
, In other words, every milk cow has a
calf every year.
For that reason a good milk cow has
prominent and wide pelvic bones for'
easier birthing.
Her reproductive cycle is identical to
the human; she comes into heat every 21
days, and gestates for nine months.
She goes dry, or given a rest, 60 days
a year the month before she gives
birth and the month after so she can
recover.
That. means she is milked twice a day,
305 days out of the year.
But while the cows get a break the
people don't, because at Bishop there are
always 950 cows to milk.
The day's first shift starts at 3 a.m.,,
when it gets the cows to the barn for the


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
This is one side of the milking parlor, (above) another row of cows is off to the left. The
milking machine harness is attached to the cows' teats and pumps milk into the stain-
less steel pipe running along the edge of their platform. Thai pipe delivers the milk to
a stainless steel container which chills the milk and keeps it at 38 degrees. Cows have
to be milked twice a day, every da3 of the iear. regardless of conditions, including hur-

He operates the Bishop Brothers Dairy, passed on to him bh his father. Donald Bishop,
and his uncle, Carl Bishop. 'It's a good living,' Nick Bishop said. 'hut it has peaks and
valleys as milk prices go up and down. The work is constant and hard, with no days
off.' He said it costs a great deal to operate a dairy. For instance. he recently spent
$92,000 to buy 40 cows.

comes on at 3 p.m. to prepare for the .5

COWS
Continued from 11A
At one point I was standing
in a doorway alongside the
barn's main feeding area. Just
as I noticed a nervous rustling
among passing cows, almost as
if they were gossiping, Bishop
asked me to step back in from
the door.
The cows weren't used to a
stranger standing there, he
said. It made them nervous and
they didn't like it.
So cows are very real and
quite sympathetic. But they're
also large and therefore a little
scary. And when they freak
out, especially while walking
on a wet concrete floor in an
enclosed space, they tend to
slip and fall, making them
unintentionally dangerous.
Believe me, having a 750
pound cow clatter to her knees
and slide with velocity toward
you well, it gives a whole
new meaning to adrenaline
rush.
But here's the thing, said
gently: While cows maybe
slow on the uptake, they are
quick to download think all
fiber diet and four stomachs.
More bluntly, cows are
filthy animals. I've seen clean-
er pigs.
It's not just that they roll in
the mud and can't get out of
their own way- so their legs
are often caked with their mess
but their hoses drip and
their mouths are wet and
drooly so there isn't an inch of
them you can touch safely.
And it's amazing how far
and wide all of that mess of
theirs carries. I left with it
smeared on my notebook,
found it waist high on my
pants, and you don't want to
know about my shoes.
There is a good reason why
cows are walked through 'sprin-
klers on their way to the milk-
ing barn, and why they're
hosed down just before they
enter.
Now about the milking.
The cows are Walked into a
room looking like a variation,
of a car pit. There are two
walkways, each with 10 milk-
ing stations, that are ep.,'rated.
b a huinrn v. ork area recested
inio he ground. ,: the peciple
are at udder level.
That also meant I was closer
to the cows' hooves than I was
to their heads, which for a city
kid was a little unnerving.
So I have to admit I Wasn't
at my most enthusiastic when
Bishop held out a milking
machine, harness (four rubber
lined stainless steel cylinders
attached to a vacuum pump by
rubber hoses), and told me to
stick my finger in one of the
cylinders. (keep in mind he was
smiling broadly).
It crossed my mind to cut
and run.
But taking a deep breath, I
stuck my finger into the cylin-
der ivhere I 'could feel the pul-
sating action. It wasn't bad,
although Bishop said the cows
don't particularly like it. The
object is to take pity on the
animals and get them through
the procedure as quickly and
painlessly as possible.
Before hooking a cow to the
machine the cow's four teats
are dipped in iodine and oneis
Shand-stroked for, a small milk
sample. That's to check and be
sure there is no infection.
SI was nervous trying to pro-
duce such a sample, because
you have to kind of get under
the cow and they often let
loose inside the barn.
Leaning away, I reached out
gingerly for the teat remember-
ing not to squeeze too tightly.
Actually you don't really


These Holstein cows at Bishop Brothers Dairy are walking through
a fine mist designed to clean them prior to milking. The cows are
so dirty, however, that they are then hosed down by hand as well,
The milk the cows produce is sold through a farmer's cooperative.
In order to produce milk a cow has to lactate, which means each
dairy cow has a calf every year. A cow will typically have a five
year milk-producing career.


squeeze as much as run your
.fingers down the teat, kind of
like getting the last bit of mus-
tard out of a plastic packet.
I'm'proud to say I actually
did it. After that, it was simple
to attach the milking machine.
There is a button to push in
the middle of the milking har-
ness, and thle cylinders pop on'
easily. Let go of the button and
the vacuum kicks in pulling the
milk into the stainless steel
pipe and storage tank system.
After the milking, which
takes about 13 minutes, the
cows' teats are, again treated
'with iodine. The cows are then
moved to the barn's feeding
trough and froia there they're


sent back to the pasture.
Now I loved "Charlotte's
Web." Because of it, I
dreamed of one day living on a
farm.
But I discovered, while still
at the Bishops' clean and well
run dairy establishment, that
the closest I ever want to get to
another cow is the refrigerated
dairy section at the supermar-
ket.

learns how to be a hero at

This calf was born while Christopher Tuffley was in the milking
barn. By the time he photographed her, about an hour later, her
mother had licked her sparkling clean. She's so new to the world her
umbilical cord is still attached. Locally, coyotes and buzzards are a
major threat to newborn calves, which is one reason they are kept in
a special pasture near the barn and kept under a close watch.

Continued from 13A
poured down the drain.
But milking is just one por-
tion of a dairy farmer's work,
albeit the largest.
Cows have to be fed, in the
pastures as well as in the barns,
and examined for their contin-
ued well-being. Every day a
certain percentage of them has
to be artificially inseminated.
In additiorf to insemination,
Bishop said he does 95-percent
of the cow doctoring (a veteri-
narian still visits the herd once a
month).
Then there is basic building
and field maintenance, and the
care of the water system.
That is an operation all by
itself, being self-contained and
under the supervision of the
state's Department of
Environmental Protection.
The cows produce so much
nutrition enriched waste that it
can't be allowed to run off raw
into the surrounding water
table. It must be treated before
it's released. That is accom-
plished using a series of
lagoons and a large former pas-
ture,' now used to grow the hay
that is turned into haylage (hay
chopped and fermented into a
dish the cows love).
Add to that all the hours
worth of paperwork a dairy
requires for example, each
cow is minutely tracked,
through her life span..
It all makes owning a dnr-N a
tremendous responsibility.
Bishop, and his wife Susie
clearly love what they do,
- which is a good thing because'
they've done it all of their mar-
ried life they met because
Susie Bishop's father was the.
vet taking care of the Bishop
herd.

But even with their warm
memories, and sense of fulfill-
ment, they worry about the
future. Only one of their sons
wants to follow in their foot-
steps.
Bishop credits his hard work-
ing farm crew with making his
operation possible.
Billy Green, his right-hand
man, was raised in dairy as he
was, but both men are throw
backs to another era today,
most farm help is Hispanic.
Typically Hispanics are hard.
workers, Bishop said, and
added that they take care of his
expensive machines better than
he does.
Dairy has become so costly
and labor intensive, Bishop
said, it may soon be done by,
agribusinesses alone, as fami-
lies won't be able to afford it.
With land values rising,.
many small farmers are getting
out of the business. 'Bishop
Dairy will work to overcome
challenges faced by all the agri-
.cultural industries in Florida.
They plan to continue produc-
ing nature's most pure beverage
- milk with, possibly their_
youngest son becoming the
fifth generation dairy farmer.,


Billy Green is Bishop's right
hand man at the dairy. He
knows every cow on sight. One
of his main functions is to
inseminate them. That has to be
done when the cow is in heat.
By marking the top of the tail
with chalk, Green knows it is
time'when the cow rubs the
chalk off. Green, who was
raised in Okeechobee, starts
work at 3 a.m. every day. He is
a key man in the dairy's opera-
tion where. insemination is cru-
cial. In order to give milk, a cow
is always pregnant, or recover-
ing from giving birth, or about
to get pregnant. The insemina-
tion is done as the cow eats her
meal after milking.

Sgrow-in popularity
SUE ANN CARPENTER
Sewus-Sun correspondent
CI'BER t1ORLD
It's amazing how the
Internet has changed our
world. It's not only creat-
-' ed a new vocabulary and
changed how things are
done, but how we think.
SCyber -world is not just
.- regional, national or inter-
national. It interconnects
and.affects everything.
For instance, now we
don't throw just any
~~ might se ll o ~ y-
thing away, because it
might sell on eBay. If
you're worried about
our dwindling and
costly landfills, go to ,
".,.fr'eerecycle.com
0-- for free items in your
[ '/ ..- .a area.
Gerald (Jed)
'-Secory heads the
SHighlands County
Purc having
u Department (vaew
: hcbec.net). They
used to hold ive auc-
a ti ons, but now use an
aemonline service (wnini: t
govdeals.com). "It's like eBay
a good de and runs for a 0O-day
trc period. This clears out
surplus. When tech-
nology changes, a prod-
Y uct quickly loses value,
so this speeds the process
and generates income back
into government..
"Marine items particularly
lose value quickly when they
sit. This not only opens up
space needs, but because the items
are maintained and functioning, it's
a good deal for the buyer. One fire
track was even sold to South
merica.


"The Internet helps to streamline govern-
ment, make it run more efficiently with result-
ing taxpayer savings," Secory said.
Recently be received an Excellence in
Procurement Award. He is the first Certified
Public Procurement Officer in Highlands
County, and his department is the first to use
the online auction.
At iwwv.sebringflchamber.com, Member-
ship and administration manager Sarah Earls
.said their Web site was set up six years ago.
and they're now in the process of re-design-
ing, enhancing and making it more user
friendly.
An interested person can view the benefits
and fill out an online application. One can see
a brief history of Sebring, contact them by e-
mail, view the community calendar of events,
and gather information regarding accommo-
dations, demographics, arts and culture.
There's a link for most of the businesses in
the membership directory.
nl addition, the Web site is also linked to
the Avon Park and Lake Placid chambers of
commerce, as well as the Highlands County
Tourist Development Council and various
organizations.
At ww.:apfla.com, Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce Executive Director Dave
Greenslade feels the Internet holds advantages
for this rural area, and encourages everyone to
take advantage of opportunities like the free
upcoming seminars on E-commerce.
Eileen May says the Lake Placid chamber
(mimt: .visitlakeplacidflorida.com) has been
online for about eight years.
"We feel it is the most efficient way to
communicate daily with individuals wanting
information. It saves postage. they have
immediate access, and it is a user-friendly
site," May said.
Agra Chem Sales Company
(www.agrachem.com) shows off its product
line of micronutrient sprays for crop produc-
tion on its Web site.
Owner Joe Murphy said that since a large
portioifof what they manufacture is exported,
handling orders and shipping is simplified.
"There are no costly phone bills or long
delays that occur with regular mail. E-mail
'conversations' take place when it's conven-
ient for both partiess"


On the other hand, Charles Pevlin, presi-
dent of Avanti Company, had a small store-
front Web site for the past few years, but
recently discontinued it. He said his customer
base (water, gas utilities and industrial cus-
tomers) still prefer to deal with people rather
than contacting them online.
Louise England, executive director at
Highlands County Economic Development
Commission (call 385-1025 or go to
www.highiandsedc.com) feels there are no
limitations with E-commerce.
"Our area is lagging, and these seminars
should help with the education process. This
is not only for new, but also for existing busi-
nesses who want to expand not only
nationally, but internationally. The Internet
makes everything easier, quicker and cheaper.
"'Our site has lots of information and is a
valuable resource for consultants or people
wishing to relocate to our area. People can
find out about enterprise zones and county
incentives. And during the last hurricanes
there was even online assistance for finding a
bridge loan," England said.
A good example of how a business changes
to meet needs is Everglades Seasonings
(u\w. evergladesfoods. com).
Marketing director Leigh Ann Wynn said
their seasoning was originally invented during
World War H because they wanted to make
the Army food tastier. It was originally sold
only in grocery stores and only by word-of-
mouth. Now the Internet aids the next step in
growth. Their Web site is a shopping cart of
seasonings and sauce products.
"When Northerners return home, they can
reorder online at their convenience and it's
shipped immediately." Wynn said.
Amy Long is operations manager with
Central Security (wviv.centralsec.com). They
have been online many years, and now feel a
need to update.
If someone is building a home or is new to
the area, their site gives information about
products they install: security, fire alarms.

mate, Our site is for informa-
tion and convenience, not nec-
essarily sales," Long said.

Alan Underwood, owner of
Lake Placid Marine Inc.
(www. lakeplacidmarine.corn)
uses eBay six to eight times a
year to move his slower inven-
tory with customers flying
in from as far as California to
buy a used boat.
"That's beneficial, because
my normal territory is a 100-
mile radius. My customers
want to touch it, feel it and see
it before they buy. And I
believe in treating them well
and giving them great service
after the sale," Underwood
said.
Kenilworth Lodge
(www.kenilworthlodge.con)
owner Madge Stewart said
they've had a Web site for 10
years.
"It was designed and built
by local webmaster Paul
Giroux of Snob Hollow
Designs. E-commerce was still
a new idea at the time. Since
then he's completely re-


designed it once and his sec-
ond re-design will be this year.
"Our site offers more infor-
mation and photos than a
brochure could. It reaches a
wider variety and quantity of
people 24 hours a day.
And since last year, rooms can
be booked online. We can even
give information about activi-
ties in our community. Our
Web site accommodates all
that, with just a click," Stewart
said.

Creative Printing (www.cre
ativeprinting.net) has been
online for 15 years. Pam -
Kirouac feels it's a great way
for proofing because customers
can see the views before it's
finally printed.
They also do a big business
nationally with multi-level
marketers ordering business'
cards.

Caladium World owner Noel
Durrance (www.caladium
world.com) thinks the Internet
is wonderful.
"I wish I could convert all
my customers to it. What's cur-
rently available is listed and
updated regularly, so customers
can check orders and get
answers to frequently-asked
questions. We've been on the


Web for 10 years and our busi-
ness has grown by leaps and
bounds.
"Since we cater to the retail
market of homeowners, our
site is more friendly and artsy
to catch their eye. We're not
just dumping excess bulbs,"
Durrance said.

At Happiness Farms
(www.happinessfarms.com)
owner Carolyn Phypers said
,they use the Internet for mail
order to garden centers and
homeowners.
"It gives our history and
tells about the process of grow-
ing caladiums. We ship whole-
sale all over the world and they
can look up their orders. In the
last five to six years, the '
Internet has done a lot for us."
Nearly two out of three car
buyers use the Internet to shop
for vehicles today. Kelley Blue
Book (www.kbb.com) has a
network of nearly 18,000 deal-
ers nationwide. You can choose
three dealers in your area and
have them contact you by e-
mail or phone.

By: John Atkinson
In April 2004, I had an episode
where my head seemed
scrambled. I heard buzzing and
called my son saying I couldn't
breathe. I was then sent in for 5
bypass surgeries and a kidney
stent. Surprisingly enough, even-
after all of these procedures, no
one knew that my carotid arteries,
silently, were blocked.
Last November, I went to another
Disney health fair where I found
out my blood pressure was
exceeding 244. I was immediately
sent to Celebration Hospital,
where it was stabilized. Through
all of this I had no other symp-
toms. My family doctor prescribed,
additional medications to stabi-
lize blood pressure.
On January 27, 2005, I received a
carotid artery ultrasound for Walt
Disney Employees at the DC ware-
house in Orlando, performed by
HealthFair USA at Port Orleans. I
did not know I had any potential
for stroke until my ultrasound
with HealthFair USA. The techni-
cian who screened me was very
concerned and told me to follow
up with my doctor immediately! It
was hard to believe, because I had
no symptoms and I felt fine. I was
sent to a vascular surgeon who
performed surgery on me in April,
2005.
I have been with Walt Disney
World for 15 years, and I am so
thankful for this testing because I
have two children and five grand-
children that need a grandfather. I
am now telling everyone I know
to get preventative screening. I
even tap on co-workers'necks and
say, "I'd get it checked!" They
might not remember what I said,
but they'll remember what I
,did.
Thank you, HealthFair USA, for
giving this 61-year-old a chance to
see his grandchildren grow up.

Proof that drugs are bad


Today, dear
readers, we are
going to talk about
a stupid criminal.
If this is not your

Laura Ware


first time perusing
this column, you
know of course I love stories
about stupid criminals. It gives
me an odd sort of comfort to
know that there are those who
attempt to commit crimes but
just can't pull it off and so get
caught before they can do much
damage.
The person in our tale today
is stupid for more than one rea-
son.
First and foremost, he is a
.drug user. Now,- when I say
"drug user" I am not talking
about the kind you get from
your doctor and then have to
wait in line for something like
half of'forever to get. I am now,
for example at that stage of life
where I can tell you what day it
is by looking at my pill minder.
I am at the stage of life where I
know what a pill minder is.

ly decent way for you to check
to see if you remembered to
take your pills that day. Of
course, if you forget to put your
pills in there in the first place
it's not much help.
Even though I am now at the
point I take enough medications'
to start a small pharmacy, I am
not yet at the stage of life where
I am eligible for the Medicare
prescription drug plan. This is
supposed to be something great
for people on Medicare, where
they get their prescription med-
icines taken care of; At least
that's what the 4,000 radio
commercials I've heard about it
claim. .


Nevertheless, this person in
question is not a part of this col-
umn because he was using legal
prescription drugs, though that
is possible. No, this person was
in possession of crack cocaine.
Except he wasn't sure he had
been sold crack cocaine. He had
some doubts, for whatever rea-
son, that he had gotten the real
deal.
So, according to my news
story, this Tampa man decided
to confirm that he had gotten
what he had paid for crack.
He did not check this out by
going to the person who had
sold it to him, which makes
sense if you remember that the
person who sold this to him was
a drug dealer .and that drug
dealers are not known for their
honesty.
No, our criminal decided to
take his crack pipe to two uni-
formed police officers and ask
them to test it for crack cocaine.
I guess he figured if anyone
could tell him 'what was in his
crack pipe, it was the cops.


The police were kind enough
to test out the substance in the
man's crack pipe and it turned
out that it was indeed crack
cocaine. They then arrested the
man and threw him in jail.
The article concludes with
the statement that the man in
question is I am not kidding
- a security worker at MacDill
Air Force Base. I will admit that
I could have done without that
last fact. I mean, the fact he was
stupid enough to ask cops to
check his crack pipe for crack
and somehow smart enough to
be a security worker? Does any-
one else have.a problem under-
standing this?
But at least this guy is behind
bars and probably out of a job.
I'd talk more about this, but it's
time to check my pill minder.
Now if I could only remember
where I put it.

professional. But
here's a sure-fire test
to make -sure you
have got what it
takes. It's made up of
only four questions..
Read and answer
them one at a time.
Ready?


This question tests
to see if you tend to
do simple things in an
overly complicated
way.
Question 2: How
do .you put an ele-
phant in a refrigera-
tor?


RETIRE
JOLaUR

Larry 1


Question 1: How do you put
a giraffe into a refrigerator? ,
Think about it. Don't just
peek at the answer.
OK, here. it is: Open the
refrigerator, put -in the giraffe
and close the door.


Did you say,
MENT "Open the refrigera-
NAL tor, put in the ele-
phant and close the
door?" Wrong!
Levey Here's the correct
answer: Open the
refrigerator, ,take out
the giraffe, put in the elephant
and close the door.,
This question tests your abil-
ity to consider the impact of
your previous actions. '
Question 3: The Lion King is
hosting an animal conference.


All the animals attend ... except
one. Which animal does not
attend?
The correct -answer is ... the
elephant. The elephant is in the
refrigerator. You just put him in
there, remember? This question
tests your memory.
OK,: even if you failed to
answer the first three questions
correctly, you still have one
more chance to show your stuff.
Question 4: You must cross a
river but it is used by croco-
diles. And you have no boat.
How do you manage to get
across?
The answer: You jump into
the river and swim across. Have
you not been listening? All the
crocodiles are attending the ani-
mal meeting. This test shows
how quickly you learn from
your mistakes.


Anyone can fall on hard times


If you've never | uri E
seen the movie JANELLE
"Cinderella Man"
with Russell- Janelle
Crowe, (and it is
out on 'DVD, so
you may have), go
rent the movie.
It is about a champion boxer
who falls on hard times due to
the Great Depression, etc.
One line in the movie said by.
the "state employee" when he
goes for assistance for his fami-
ly was, "I'd never thought I'd
see you here, Jim." This char-
acter (and it was a true story)
would have rather have died
than to be in that position, but
due to circumstances beyond
his control and "life happen-
ing," there he was. He had
injured his hand and .could no
longer box professionally so he
was canned.
My question is why did the
employee think he couldn't fall
on hard times, too? The whole
nation was going through the


/{


SARGONN Great Depression.
S JARGON Millionaires were,
jumping out of
Dennison windows because
they lost their
wealth overnight
when the stock
market crashed. In the movie, it
portrayed other men who left
their families because they' did-
n't want the responsibility any-
more. Other couples sent their
kids to relatives or state facili-
ties because they couldn't feed.
them anymore.
It is my belief that this could
happen again in America. Why?
Because the fact is there are
Americans going to bed hungry
and it isn't because they're not
working and isn't because
they're blowing their money.,
They feel blessed to get to go to
McDonald's.
Health insurance is through
the roof for people who work
full time and yet can't afford it.
The rich keeping getting richer
and the hard-working class


keep getting poorer (or so it
seems).
It frustrates me to see, this
"I've got mine, you get yours"
miridset coming from our fel-
low man, but nevertheless, it is
the mindset of today as well.
The movie character told his
son, when the boy stole a loaf
of salami from a deli (they
returned it), "We don't steal, no
matter what, we don't steal."
The kid knew his family was
starving, didn't have money
and didn't want to be sent away
from his folks. What saddened
me was the meat man could
have given the boy a job
(sweeping the sidewalks after
school for a month or two to
pay off the cost of the salami)
as he could see the family was
starving. But he didn't.
I am not for welfare as far as
supporting people, who won't
help themselves. But .I am for
helping those who help them-
selves (the previous phrase is
See TIMES, page 7B,


What results prove
According to a scientific sur-
vey, 90 percent of the profes-
sionals who were tested got all
four questions wrong. But
many .preschoolers got several
correct answers.
This conclusively disproves
the theory that most profession-
als have the brains of a four-
yeai-old.

Larry Levey,' a News-S un and
Senior Scene correspondent
from Avon Park, "borrowed"
this quiz from an e-mail for-
warded to him by his almost 12-
year-old great-granddaughter,
Isabel, from Minnesota.

Continued from 6B

not in the Bible by the way,
although the following verse
(my translation) is: "If you
don't work, you don't eat."
The key .to that phrase is
"work." I'm talking about peo-
ple who will "work for food."
Yet they seem to get that same'
look, with no consideration of
all the events going on in their
lives. They say swallow your
pride and ask for help, then say
if you had more pride, you'd
make a way. What is the defini-
tion of pride? When is it good
and when is it bad?


Money is a tool that a lot of
people don't have enough of
these days. But the sad fact is,
when a person sells their soul
for money, it becomes an idol.
This idol affects every part of a
person's make-up emotion-
ally, mentally, physically and
every other way I think -
because of the interaction with
other people and their response
to the person's lack of it. And
yet it is a tool no one can live
without.
I look to the church for
answers because I do believe in
God. I'm praying for a real
move of God to sweep our
nation. God's answer to poverty
in the church is Acts 2:42-47.
As long as members are work-


ing, there shouldn't be a prob-
lem. One can usually tell if a
person is blowing money by the
"new clothes" they wear, new
jewelry, dining out all the time,
etc. But suppose that new dress
was a gift? Are we to be watch-
dogs or watchmen?
Thankfully my church
recently completed a teaching
on God's way of handling
money and the pastor is more
than willing to counsel -mem-
bers if they need financial
advice'and has others in leader-
ship who are equipped to do the
same.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Rhythms


of life
Watching our son and
daughter-in-law with their
1-year-old when they visit-
ed at Christmas was fun.
Whether feeding him,
changing him or simply
enjoying his many'antics,
they were in rhythm.
Rhythm refers to repeated
patterns, sounds, music or
the movements of a dance.
These movements may be
similar or diversified. But
they carry a harmonious
sequence.
And that is what we wit-
nessed harmony in their
approach to the ebb and
flow of their daily routines
with their son as well as
interacting with each other.
The result was a content
and happy child who easily
went from onq to the other
in secure confidence.
This paints a picture for
us of how we can approach
life and the many seasons
that will come our way.
Seasons of plenty or want;
times when we're on moun-
tain tops or times in the val-
leys; moments of quiet or
endless chatter. In each sea-
son, if we develop rhythm,
we won't stub our toes,
bump our heads or collide
with our partner.
Perhaps the first lesson in
this dance of life is to
remember were not in con-
trol. If we acknowledge that
God is in control, we've
mastered the'first step and
avoid missteps.
Secondly, our lives have
meaning and purpose.
We're not randomly placed
here to take up -p..Ice *.' it-
out direction. Seeking, our
Creator God,', e' disco er
his,\plan for our lives and
keep in step.
Thirdly, we need to sur-
render our wills to his.
When we do this, we will
move in rhythm to the beat
of the ultimate Drummer.
Others will see the differ-
ence of one who is in sync
with God; and, no matter
the season, heats the pulse
of heaven and moves in
fluid symmetry and tender
harmony.
The Bible speaks of the
many seasons of life: "A
time to be born and a time
to die, a time to plant and a
time to uproot, a time to
weep and a time to laugh, a
time to mourn and a time to
dance, a time to embrace
and a time to refrain, a time
to be silent and a time to
speak." (Ecclesiastes 3: 2,
4; 5b, & 7b, NIV)
Jesus will never leave us
or forsake us. His presence
transforms our seasons of
joy and sorrow. When we
stay in rhythm with him, the
world will know that life
with God is far better than
going it alone.
Since God has set eterni-
ty in the hearts of men, then
being in sync with him will
affirm, "He has made every-
thing beautiful in his time."
(Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV)
Stay in rhythm. Selah.

Home restoration




awakens history


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Restoring a
home that has seen years of
neglect is a major labor of
love, sweat and tears. But, for
Mitch and Dolores Harvey,
they are tears of joy.
For the last 17 months, they
and their son Todd have been
hard at work resurrecting the
beauty of this Lakeview Drive
grand lady. But, it's also been a
history lesson with an interest-
ing twist.
Around 1925, George Kline
built a magnificent home on
Lake Jackson. He was no
stranger to Sebring having also
built Harder Hall.
And now, with the imminent
opening of Harder Hall, how
fitting that the Harveys also are
completing the restoration of
the home Kline built and lived
in. Unfortunately, Kline lost his
home along with Harder Hall
durifig the Crash of 1929.
Very soon, however, life will
fill the rooms of both of these
magnificent structures. The
lights will come on and history
will join hands with restora-
tion.

More history
awakened
Though many people identi-
fy with the Harder Hall history,
Mitch said that most folks
know this house as the Rex
Beach house.
"According to some research
It e done, in 1893 Rex Beach,
-a young fellow in la%\ school in
the Chicago area, Ir.ieled to
Alaska to follow the 'gold rush.
He met his wife there and
came to Sebring in 1929 and
bought this house. He had
become a writer in Alaska and
wrote 10 novels known as 'The
Alaska Series.' He also owned
7,000 acres in Avon Park
where he grew gladiolas and
Easter lilies," Mitch said.
"Rex Beach was a philan-
thropist who gave generously
to those in need, paying bills
they couldn't pay and helping
in any way he could," Dolores
said.
However, he was afflicted

with cancer of the throat. His
wife had already predeceased
him and he couldn't take the
pain. The Harveys refer to the
room in which he took his life
as the departure room.
One of the rooms that Beach
added was a solarium con-
structed of glass and steel.
"But the hot Florida temper-
aures numde it impoibie itO

"The glass crumbled. So, he
tried knotty pine next."
When the Harveys saw it,
the room was cooled by a win-
dow air conditioner. In keeping
with the ambiance and period
of the rest of the house, they
dropped the ceiling to 10 feet.
They put travertine stone from
Italy on the floor and added the
wonder of modem technology
to transform the solarium into
their media room.
"By crawling under the
house, my son and I have run

A neighbor lady told the
Harveys that as a little girl, she
was invited to the big house.
She remembers the running
water over the solarium and the
kind hospitality of the Beaches.
"They even gave her a box

Mitch said.
In another vein, some
famous people have visited in
this house one being the .
brother of "Doc" from the old
"Gunsmoke" television pro-


gram.

roots. But, the restoration
brings ne\ life and a future..'
The Harveys are eager to turn
the key and start making their
own history.


Vision transforms diamond


j in the rough to

By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent I
C'A. SEBRING The house at 2701Lakeview
,' -- Drive had-been for sale for some time. Hidden
behind overgrown shrubbery and beneath vines
crawling over its rough, unkempt exterior a
jewel of many facets awaited discovery by some-'
one with vision, skill and love.
Mitch and Dolores Harvey weren't looking to
buy a house. They were happily settled and
retired in their home in Lake Placid where they
had raised their family. But, then their son Todd
said, "You have to see this house. You need a new
house."
He told his son that he liked his house. But, he
agreed to take a look.
Mitch has been a developer in the area for the
last 26 years; so, on first inspection, he and
Dolores walked away from it.
But, that diamond in the rough beckoned them
to see the beauty beneath layers of paint on some
original heart of pine floors; the potential under
the cracked ,and crumbling plaster; the hope that
would be restored when more than 60 windows
were replaced; the vision beyond the small rooms
that broke the flow of the floor plan ^ not to men-
tion how fresh landscaping could replace dying
trees; even the renewal of a crumbling front wall.
So, they took a step in faith and let their cre-
ativity take wing.

Facing the challenges
Once the work began there were some surpris-
.: es; like a 10-year-old roof with nine leaks. But
rather than fuss and fume, Mitch chose to top off
the house with new baked clay tiles and corner

throughout the rest of the house. In fact, the orig-
inal medallions on the outside walls of the house
are part of these complementary accents.

Though taking the old trees down broke their
hearts, they knew if thed Jidn't, Ihe\ 'd be facing
ah awful problem later.
Mature shrubbery and trees restored the land-
scape. Brick pathways noW flo' a round a circle
that holds, a stone fountain from Mexico.
"A metal arbor will complement the wrought
iron balcony and front door design creating a
tranquil sitting area in the front courtyard,"
Dolores said.
Wrought iron gates will connect the newly
built walls for another finishing touch.
All their creative planning has been done with
an eye toward keeping the integrity of the home's
style and era in tact while utilizing the wonders of
modern technology.
For three weeks, they ground down the
cracked and rough walls to the original plaster
and recreated the crown molding in the living
room. In other areas, they tore walls down. A
special crew had to be hired to remove the
asbestos that covered all the pipes.
The new kitchen which had been a small
library, butler's pantry and kitchen is now one
beautifully open space filled With extraordinary
Italian Renaissance cabinets and carved mold-
ings. Even a small television will be hidden away
and accessible by the touch of a finger able to
appear and disappear when not in use.
The central focus of the living room is the
magnificent fireplace that the Harveys specially.
ordered.
"It is made of travertine, which is a natural
Italian stone hand-carved in Israel," Mitch said.
This extraordinary fireplace inspired them to
use travertine in other rooms as well; such as an
archway in the kitchen, on some of the floors and
wherever that old world charm was needed.
The master bedroom which. had been two
rooms is a spacious. 30 feet' by 21 feet, and the
Harveys made two bathrooms into an exception-

Harvesting and recycling rainwater an ancient technique


Spring has arrived.
This year I am growing a,
variety of vegetables in my gar-
den. I've also positioned a rain
barrel under my rain gutter out-
flow and now I'm waiting for
some rain to fill it up.
Harvesting rainwater is an old
idea that dates back to more
than 2,000 years ago in
Thailand where rainwater was
collected in simple clay con-
tainers. A generally bigger type
of rain barrel used throughout
the world is a cistern.
Ancient Romans collected
rainwater in underground cis-
terns and interior pools, where
it slowly evaporated and cooled
their homes. In the early 1900s
cisterns were often made with a
cement floor and dirt walls that
had been coated in plaster.
Modern-day cisterns may also
be made from above-ground
tanks, made of plastic. Cisterns
usually have a lid covering.their.
openings to prevent dirt, ani-
mals, insects, and other things


from getting into the water.
Up until a few generations
ago, municipal water didn't
really exist in America, and
many folks relied on captured
rainwater to meet their needs.
Even today, large areas of the
world, including the entire con-
tinent of Australia, still depend
primarily on rainwater for their
water supply.
Many greenhouses use cis.-
terns to help meet their water
needs, especially in the United
States. Some countries, such as
Bermuda and. the U.S. Virgin
Islands, have laws that require
rainwater harvesting systems to
be built alongside any new con-
struction, and cisterns can be
used in these cases. Other coun-
tries, such as Japan and
Germany, also offer financial
incentives or tax credit for
installing cisterns.
Today rain barrels in the
United States are generally used
to catch rainwater to be used
during times of drought or to


reduce water con-
sumption from city
water supplies. The
water is ustially not
intended for drinking
but instead to be used
for gardening or
lawns. Rainwater is
naturally soft water
devoid of minerals,
chlorine, fluoride,
and other chemicals.
Plants respond very
well to rainwater.
And, rainwater is
free!
Another reason to
have a rain barrel is


NEWS FROM
THE
WATERSHED
Jennifer Donze


because of the benefits to the
environment. Rainwater cap-
tured in a rain barrel helps
reduce runoff and prevent
stormwater pollution. In a nat-
ural landscape (like a forest)
there's generally very little
runoff. The soil and its dense
cover of leaf litter and vegeta-
tion act as a sponge, absorbing
most precipitation. But because


we've replaced so
much natural ground-
cover with impervi-
ous surfaces, rainfall
no longer soaks into
the soil as readily as it
once did. As a result,
huge volumes of
runoff flow from
countless roofs and
compacted lawns
down driveways and
roads to storm sew-
ers, carrying pesti-
cides, motor oil, and
other pollutants to
nearby streams and
rivers. Stormwater


runoff is the leading threat to
the nation's estuaries and one of
the largest problems facing
lakes.
While harvesting and reusing
rainwater is very simple, there
are safety concerns that must be
addressed. First of all, no one
.should ever use an open,
unscreened container. Both
children and animals can drown


in as little as a few inches of
collected water. And standing
water is an open invitation for
breeding mosquitoes that
spread West Nile -virus..and
other diseases. Secondly, only
use a food-grade container with
a known usage history that was
made to hold liquid. Trash cans
are not designed to withstand
the pressure and weight of col-
lected water and will warp and
eventually split. Finally, make
sure your rainwater collection
container is seated on a firm,
level foundation to miniinize
the danger of tipping. A typical
60-gallon rain barrel weighs
500 pounds when full.
If you want to learn how to
master the. art of rainwater col-,
lection and reuse, be sure'to
register for an upcoming work-
shop from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Friday; April 7 at the Agri-
Civic Center in Sebring.
Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District along
with the University of Florida's


Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods and Master
Gardeners are sponsoring a
hands-on workshop where par-
ticipants can put the finishing
touches on a rain barrel to take
home. Call 863-402-6545 to
register. The cost is $10 to
cover materials. The workshop
will cover everything from
modifying your downspout to
barrel setup for efficient and
safe reuse. We'll even talk
about how to calculate the
amount of water coming off
your roof so you'll know how
much you can expect to save
(which is a whole lot more than
you probably think).

Benefits of keeping a garden journal


L .4 ~All-TH--Y- ou F -o--


A garden journal can add to
your gardening success and
enhance your enjoyment of
your gardening activities.
Depending on how much effort
you want to spend on journal-
ing, it can be as little as what
you planted and when. Or it can
record every minute activity
you preform, such as trimming,
fertilizing, watering, and
recording rainfall temperature.
It's up to you how much or how
little information you keep. It
also depends on what you
expect to do with the informa-
tion.
The benefits to keeping a
garden journal are many. How
many times have you thought
you would remember to do a
task in early spring, only to for-
get about it completely over the
winter? When. you try to garden
from memory, you're simply
not as well-equipped to make
decisions or carry out your
plans. What you choose to
record and the format you
decide to keep in your journal is
your personal choice.
There are several types of
garden journals, you can decide
which one will meet your needs
the best. You can keep your gar-
den journal in a spiral bound
notebook, loose leaf notebook,
or anything that appeals to you.
The book stores have journals
made especially for your garden
if you want to get that fancy. I
personally like the loose leaf
notebook, because then I can
add pictures in document pro-
tectors.
There are two types of jour-
nals that are helpful in keeping
your records.
Data Journal -- this maybe
be placed where you note what
you plant, when you plant and
the types of seeds, how long
they took to germinate, which
type was better than another,
how the weather affected them,
which type pest control worked
best, and which. plant yielded
the best harvest. This journal
'also helps you decide what to
plant the following season.

ing experience in a
different way. You
could note .your .. "
observations about
the day, your feelings,
the weather, your
reaction to various
situations you -
encounter in your gar-. .i
den, along with some
of the more technical GR(
aspects of gardening. SF
The first thing you
want to do when plan- ~
ning your garden is to HigI
figure out what you Countq
want out of it. A great Gar(
way to do this is to
ask yourself some questions
and take note in your journal.
Do you just want fresh vegeta-
bles on the dinner table through
summer, or do you want more
for canning and freezing?
Would you like some fresh
herbs to compliment those veg-
etables and meats? Do you want
. your yard to be colorful with
seasonal flowers and would you
like extras for cutting and put-
ting in vases to decorate your
home, and to give to a friend?
Do you want your flower beds
to have flowers, vegetables,.
herbs or only flowers. Are there
some new plants you want 'to
try? Do you want to save a little
money by starting from seeds or
do you want to purchase plants'?
You can record as much, or
.as little as you like, in your gar-
den journal. Just make sure it's
a fun activity, rather than a
chore.
Listed below are some sug-
gestions for the kind of infor-
mation you may want to
include.

plants.
If you start a garden journal,
you can also record how plants
perform, when flowers are in
bloom, how large a harvest was
and all kinds of information that
will help you make a better gar-
den next year.
When you make your entries
use the highlighter or draw an
arrow beside anything you want
to remind yourself of tlhe next
year. Don't forget to record how
big your garden was when you
started and how it changes from
year to year.,I
Your garden journal will also
help you create a chores calen-
dar, because you, can see how
long it took to complete each
step of growing and maintain-
ing your garden.
,Without a garden journal we
garden by trail and error. Since
plants don't come with a guar-
antee, we never know how they
are going to grow for us. One
way to take out some of the
guesswork is by keeping a gar-

den journal.
With a journal you can study
how your home garden reacted
to the various efforts and atten-
tion you gave it.
Think about what you will do
different, to make the next crop,
much more successful. Often,
' this will cause you to identify
something you did not do or did
do right.

An inspirational thought
Ps.:1 1-3, -Blessed ts the man
that vwalketh not in the counsel
of the ungodly. nor standeth in
the way of sinners, nor sitteth in
the scat of the score f1l. But his
delight is in the law of the Lord:
I and in his law doth he rtedpt
day and night. And'he'si
like a tree planted by th -'
water, that bringeth forth his fruit In his season; his
leaf also shall not whither; and whatsoever he doeth
shall prosper." The only answer to success in life is
found in the VWord of God. So man)' people look
ev'erywihcre else for success, only to find
disappointment. There's:tedlly only one way to be
truly successful in life, jan...at's God's way. Joshua
1:8 says. "This book o .ivw shall not depart out
of thy mniouth; but thou/; neditate therin day
and night, that thou nttl ,bserve to do according
to all that is t'ritten th ir then thoru shalt


make thi,' way prospcrn
good success." Our \wt
temporal, but God's iv
be the beginning of an
Coi'S wvay. Be Encour,


then thou shalt have
ng successful can be
rmnancnt. Let this day
nt successful life

Appealing power and perpetual popularity of pink


I've never forgotten the first
time I saw a pink Cadillac. As
we approached it, the logo from
the cosmetics company Mary
Kay became visible, but only
later did I learn that owning a
pink Cadillac was a mark of the
highest achievement as a sales
representative for that compa-
ny. The founder, Mary Kay,
talked about her choice of col-
ors in her biography "More
Than a Pink Cadillac: Mary
Kay Inc.'s Nine Leadership
Keys to Success," by Jim
Underwood. Pink was the color
of top producers in that compa-
ny.
Romance author Julie
Garwood began her series "The
Clayborne Brides", with "One
Pink Rose," volume 2 "One
White Rose," and the third vol-
ume, "One Red Rose." Who
hasn't admired pictures of pink
rose bouquets, or the real thing
growing up a trellis? Pink roses
continue to be a most popular
color the ultimate sign of
femininity. Any bridal book
worth its salt will have at. least
one picture of pink roses or lis-
ten to the Judith Bosley audio-
book, and find out what it's like
to be a."Bride in Pink."
The comics are a great source


of fun and nearly
every Sunday I read
one with a cat who is
enamored of a "little
pink sock." Carole
Nelson Douglas's
Midnight Louie (the
cat), lovingly owned
by amateur detective
Temple Barr, works
another mystery set in
the middle of a horde
of ruthless teen
blondes trying to
make it on a reality
TV show. Carole calls

her story simply, "Cat in a Hot
Pink Pursuit."
Who hasn't heard of pink
elephants, the favorite of car-
toonists and writers to describe
the deliriums of drunkards?
Denise Swanson mixes bands
and rock musicians with school
psychologists to come up with
her Scumble River mystery
story, "Murder of a Pink
Elephant." You'll find that all of
Swanson's Scumble River sto-
ries start with Murder of, such
as "Murder of Barbie and Ken;"
"Murder of Sleeping Beauty;"'
"Murdei of Small-town
Honey;" "Murder of Smart
Cookie;" "Murder of Snake in
the Grass" and "Murder of


Sweet Old Lady."
How about the
wildly successful
Pink Panther series,
starring the bum-
bling, accident-
prone Inspector
Clouseau, played by
Peter Sellers? You'll
laugh yourself silly
watching the videos
or DVDs of "The
Pink Panther;" "The
Pink Panther Strikes
Again;" "The Return
of the Pink Panther;"


"A Shot in the Dark" or "The
Revenge of the Pink Panther."
Where the mystery begins and
the comedy ends are impossible
to unravel, but you can enjoy
those great movie theme songs
over and over with our Pink
Panther's Penthouse Party CD.
Lauren Willig's latest story,
"The Secret History of the Pink

Working with local crafts-
men and specialty shops, the
Harveys have tastefully and
harmoniously joined one room
to another, including using peri-
od fixtures that set the tone of
the era. State-of-the-art technol-
ogy has unobtrusively allowed
the house to be wired for sound.


Local artists, Carol Mills and
Michele Provan of Artistic
Touches have added hand-
painted artwork on the foyer
ceiling, walls in several rooms
and other unexpected places
bringing out the old world
charm of the Italian
Renaissance style.

alcove. Mitch remembered how
unusual it was.
"I'd never seen one like that
before and wanted to recreate it
for her here."
When restoring the foyer
walls, he fashioned an alcove to
hold the 58-inch pipes for their
front door chime bringing a
little history of their own into
the house.
Also, he likes being, inven-
tive. One of the rooms on the
second floor had been used as a
small nursery. A stairway that
led through a bathroom
adjoined it to another larger
bedroom.
"I didn't like the idea of hav-
ing to go through the bathroom
to get to the other room. So I
thought about what I could do
instead."
Closing off the bathroom
from the small room, he
removed the steps and crafted
new steps in the comer of the
room. But, walking into the
room one only sees a bookcase
in the corner. In reality, it is a
cleverly disguised door. It looks
stationary, but swings open to
reveal the hidden stairway that
connects to the other room,
The bookcase will hold 22
Rex Beach novels that the
Harveys have acquired -
adding nostalgic charm to this
sitting/overnight room for an


extra guest.

Almost there
The chauffeur's quarters was
so infested with termites and
roaches, that the Harveys tore it
down and reconstructed it.
Now this attractive building
will be Dolores, dad's home
along with connecting to the
garage. The room behind the
garage will be one of Mitch's
favorites. From here, a tradition
he began some time ago will
continue building barbecues
and taking them on the road.
They have traveled to many
places including Alabama and
have gone as far as
Massachusetts. In 2004, his bar-
becue sauce came in first in
Sebring and his beer can chick-
en placed second.
"Once the restoration is com-
pleted and we're actually living
here, I can get back to my
favorite hobby being on the
barbecue circuit. I build all my
own smokers and this will be
my room."
Neighbors walking or biking
by have been giving them the
thumbs up or stopping by to
chat and compliment the beauty
of the restoration. It has been an
encouragement and inspiration
to the Harveys to have their
approval.
It won't be long. when
2701Lakeview Drive will be
their new address.
"I can't wait," Dolores said;
and Mitch whole-heartedly
agreed.


Mitch enjoys some fun as he comes through the passageway hidden
behind the bookcase door in the sitting/guest room.

5 Years Ago
March 25, 2001: South
Florida Community College
won an 18-12 shootout
with the Hillsborough
Hawks. Ryan Raburnr's
one-out line drive home
run put the Panthers on *
top in the bottom of the
seventh. Both teams fin-
ished the game with 14
hits and two errors apiece.
The game started on a
somber note as SFCC cen-
ter-fielder Quan Shulerwas
hit in the face with an over-
thrown ball during warm-
ups and was taken to the
emergency room with a,
broken jaw.

10 Years Ago
March 27, 1996: Avon'
Park drubbed Mulberry 16-
2 for its seventh straight
victory. Pitcher Jeremy
Couch won his second
start of the season and left
the game in the fourth'with
a 16-0 lead: The week
prior, Couch had pitched
five inninnings against Hardee
and left with a 13-3 lead,
totaling 29 runs and 25
hits in support of the pitch-
er over two games.
20 Years Ago
March 26, 1986: March
continued to be a cruel
month for South Florida
Community College and
they lost to Hillsborough to
drop their fifth game in a
row. Lack of offense was .
the culprit as the Panthers
managed only five runs in
three games and were
swept by St. Pete earlier in
the week.

SFCC keeps struggling


Have lost seven of last eight

as offensive slump goes on
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK It was another rough outin;' at the
plate for the South Florida Communit) College
Panthers, who lost to the Palm Beach Panthers Fnrida
night 3-2. ,
The silver lining in the box score is that the Panthers
avoided a ihu[out, sorriething the, '\c been unJibl tj i-lj
in four of their last eight Southern Conference games,
seven of which haxe been losses.
Poor baserunning, stranded basertnners and a lack of
timely hitting have contributed to the
Palm Beach recent Panther slide, and all three reared
their ugly heads once again Friday.
i Working through the tough hitting
SFCC stretch has been a challenge for coach
Rick Hitt and his South Florida co'aching
staff.
"We're struggling with it on offense,
there's no two ways about it. Our hitters worked hard.
They're trying," explained Hitt. "We've just got to keep
fighting and try to figure it out." .
Palm Beach jumped ahead in the third inning capital-
izing on walks and a Ste\ e Vento home run. \\Nth ShIj n

Palm Beach was finished scoring.
South Florida had trouble getting an thing going
through six, bringing four batters to the plate only once,
in the second..
In the seventh, the Panthers finally coupled back-to-
back hits with Nick Polstoh's double and a Josh \Velkes

At the risk of piling on,
beating a dead horse and kick-
ing a man when he's down, I
feel compelled to sound off
about Barry Bonds. Unlike so
many publications in the past
two weeks gearing their mate-
rial toward the public's hatred
of the anabolic icon, I'm
approaching the subject from a
place of sincere ethical intro-
spection.
I feel uneasy cheering for
anyone's misfortune, regard-
less of how lofty their celebri-
ty status may be. It feels like
there's a comfortable distance
inherent to sports fanaticism
that excuses us from judgment,
like cheering for heroes or vil-
lains in a movie.
But I 'was really taken aback
by the sheer glee I felt while
pouring through last week's
Sports Illustrated. I grinned as
I tuned the pages, reaffirming
my already solid belief that

I'm sure this is a universal
thing for elementary school-
age, baseball card-collecting
kids. I remember my friends

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Dwayne Bailey of SFCC gets tagged out by Palm Beach shortstop Devon Cartwright after getting caught
in a rundown Friday night.


SFCC
Continued from IE
coach to pull starting pitcher
Chris Burnett.
Vince Grasso made it three
hits in a row with his RBI single
to right and after Dale
Slimmick ran it up to four con-
secutive hits, Reco Jackson laid
down a perfect sacrifice bunt to
move the runners to second anid
third.
Billy Dobson's walk forced


Palm Beach to make another
pitching change, and the South
Florida dugout exploded to
cheer on their anemic offense
with the bases loaded.
But Dwayne Bailey hit a
ground ball to third and first
baseman Murphy made a. great
dig of Danny Speerin's low
throw in the dirt to extinguish
the rally.
The Panthers managed to get
two more baserunners in the
eighth, but after Nick Stanley
was caught stealing and Josh


Welkes hit a weak pop-up to
first, SFCC was out of gas.
"It's' not a one-man thing. It's
up and down the order," Hitt
said regarding the work the
Panthers have done to right the
ship offensively.
"We're trying to kindle the
fire and get back to some hitting
basics. We're still right in it (in
the conference standings) and
we'll hit a run. We've just got to
get that first one to get that run
started."

America Proe hop
and Clearance Center


The past couple of weeks
have certainly been exciting
with all the visitors here in
town for the world-famous 12-
hour race at the Sebring
Airport. It is always such an
enjoyable time each year as
everyone seems so pumped up
and eager to be a part of the
tradition that spans more than
half a century.
I'll bet the bass and crap-
pies also enjoyed their respite,
too. Most sportsmen were busy
counting laps at the track or
cringing while watching their
favorite team miss those easy
layups in the NCAA tourna-
ment, giving the bass a relief
from dodging all those sharp
pointed gizmos thrown at them
every day.
Getting back to the fishing,
there is something new. I say
new because I have just
learned about it. How would
you like to fish a tournament in
which no boat was needed? In
fact, this is bank fishing only.
Maybe we could get something
.like this started here.
Some fellows out in
. Oklahoma and Texas have
started fishing clubs that are
radically different from the
bass anglers clubs we are so
used to. The Oklahoma group
is known as the American Carp
Society and their membership
dues are $45 for 1 year, $80 for
2 years and $100 for 3 years.
The Carp Anglers Group of
Arlington,.Texas, are a little
less at $20, $35 and $50. They
are holding a fishing tourna-
ment (the Texas Carp
Challenge ) March 26-31. It is
an individual competition lim-
ited to 275 anglers over the age
of 12. The entry fee was $250,
which sounds a little steep for
carp.
Rules state that each angler
must have a cell phone to call
in a caught fish to a tourna-
ment official. A GPS unit is
recommended to give tourna-
ment officials the angler's
location.
No boats will be allowed
and all anglers must fish from
the bank. They are allowed
three iid,. .itih only one hook'
per rod (no treble hooks). They
must use a soft mesh, carp-,

friendly net and must have an
accurate set of scales. Any type
of bait is permitted as long as
it is not detrimental to carp or
the environment.
Those entered in this tourna-
ment will be allowed to fish
within a 75-mile radius of
Austin, Texas. If there were
fewer than 150 entries the area
would be limited to a 50-mile
radius of Austin, Texas.
It is not unusual in Texas to
catch a carp weighing 10 to 30
pounds. The world record is 82
pounds. Veteran carp angler


Mark Villanova, who lives in
Irving, said, "We have some of
the biggest carp there are any-
where. There is a group of us
called the Lone Star Carp
Brigade that hopes to organize
a carp tournament trail and
hold tournaments on about five
lakes a year just like the bass
tournament trails. This sport is
just exploding."
Villanova is sponsored by
Lone Star Baits and anglers are
wearing their sponsors patches
on their shirts just like those
guys in bass tournaments.
The carp was first brought to
America for its food value. In
Europe, the carp is the number
one game fish. Izaak Walton
wrote in his famous 17th cen-
tury book, The Compleat
Angler, that the carp was "the
queen of rivers."
If anyone is interested in
starting a carp club here, I wish
you good luck, but please don't
call me.

Director's Challenge tourney to help

Heartland Christian improve technology


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Third Annual Director's
Challenge Golf Tournament, organized by
Heartland Christian School, will be held at Golf
Hammock Country Club on Saturday, April 1. As
in past years, the tournament will feature a silent
auction and other promotions that will include a
wide variety of gifts, vacations and other servic-
es available for participants.
The proceeds of this year's tournament will go
towards the purchase of laptop computers for
each classroom. Teachers will be able to use the
computers for classroom presentations,
audio/video demonstrations, Internet fact finding,
keeping of classroom grades, attendance and
communication with parents.
The purchase of these computers will.cap a
three-year goal for a technologically networked


campus.
One of the main sponsors that will help HCS
achieve these goals is Chrysler Corporation and
Well's Motor Company, which will provide one
of their luxury cars as a hole-in-one prize. In
addition, there will be a Drive for the Chrysler
test-drive promotion that donates $5 to the school
for each person that takes a test drive in one of
their vehicles during the tournament.
Beef 0' Brady's is another returning sponsor
that will offer a traditional challenge hole where
golfers can win food prizes.
The format will remain as a two-person scram-
ble and play wiltLbegin with an 8 a.m. shotgun
start. If you are interested in playing in and/or
sponsoring the tournament, please contact tour-
nament director Steve Swan at 385-4336.

BARRY
Continued from IE
a more worldly view has.allowed our
sports conversation to evolve from topics
like "Jose Canseco is stronger than Vince
Coleman" and "Yeah, but Vince
Coleman's faster," to more advanced
debate, such as "Should the advent of
steroids mandate a reevaluation of Hall of
Fame induction based on merit?"
I'm not going to get into all that here.
But Nate and I still enjoy friendly argu-
ments from time to time regarding favorite
athletes and image. My friend contends
that sports stars are admired from suchlian
irrelevant distance 'that '"who they are", as


people shouldn't matter.
Ift ike T\ son can provide thrilling
knockouts out for most of his career, who
cares if he threaten 1to eat your children?
It's entertainment, right?
My contention is that, with a galaxy full
of personalities, we can afford to be picky
when choosing one to follow and admire.
As a New York Met in the early 1990s,
Vince Coleman was arrested for throwing
a firecracker into a crowd and injuring a
little girl's eye. My opinion was changed.
. Sure, in an ideal world we'd make
everyday heroes out of United Way volun-
teers and school teachers and such. I
understand that..
- -Before the details of Bonds 'steroid use


materialized last week, we knew he was a
loathsome, selfish, abrasive, person and a
terrible teammate. As his' career numbers
pushed into "best ever" status, his churl-
ishness seemed to matter less and less.
The feeling of satisfaction that comes
from reading about his downfall isri't
sadistic. It's confirmation that justice, or
karma, will prevail. Regardless of the
steroid issue, you can't get away with
being a gargantuan jerk for your entire
career.
Call me naive, but that's comforting.
