CLEARINGZ- -XTRA MILE


Spirits are willing;

government's weak

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK Moved- by the calamity of
Hurricane Katrina, Travis Crosson, owner of Travis
Crosson Tree Service, -along with a crew of men, and
plenty of' equipment and supplies, left behind wives
and children to.help those in need.
Arriving in New Orleans about a month after the'
storm, Crossonr and his team were well prepared -
equipped for serious work.
After five long months away, he didn't return home
to tell the story he had hoped, and though he doesn't
regret going, he wishes he could have been more use-
ful.
Crosson said that people don't realize cleanup from
storms is overseen by the government. "The United
States Army Corps of Engineers runs it in that area,"
he said.
The matter of who organizes something isn't as,
important as the manner of organization, which is vital
to any operation. While Crosson loved helping the
people he was able to help. he was frustrated by the
poor organization that hampered progress.
"We were in New Orleans for three months with lots
of manpower and equipment," he said, "but because of
the way things were run, we spent the \\hole time in an
area where we were cleaning up common household
garbage that could have been done %w ith a Bobcat and
a trailer."
Unfortunately, the men, their skills and all their
equipment a track excavator, front-end loader, two
skid steer loaders, a bucket truck, dump truck, and
trailers were of little use..
Continually led to believe that another area would
soon open up, they waited.
Realizing the futility of remaining there, they decid-
ed to move on to Waveland, Miss., finally putting their
skills and machinery to use. "This place was totally,
de stated b. a wave more than 30 feet high," Crosson
said. "EBern house in the 10-mile long. three-quarter
mile deep area was just flattened to the ground."
While _riifeful to at last serve people in the capacLi-

and his crew recently returned from a fiie-month trip to areas affected bh


ty in xhich the\ \\ ere qualified taking down leaning
trees, removing hanging branches and uprooted stumps
and filing in holes their progress v.as ;ull thwarted
by limitations.
"The Corps of Engineers requires 'right of entry' for
contractors to go on pri\ ate property and do the work,"
Crosson explained. Additionally, to work.at all, there
had to be both a Quality Assurance and a Qualit\
Control person the first to see that e\ er thing that
was supposed to be done was done, the latter to ensure
safe practices. ,
Crosson said that not only did the people selected for
these positions lack training and knowledge of the tree
service, trade, but the system severely crippled opera-
tion
"Withuut a QA you can't w6rk," Crosson said. "And
30-35 neri-nr'of the time we didn't have one I can't

lack of organization."

SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 24/NUMBER 45


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING By all
accounts, local officials' trip to
Tallahassee was a success.
Between 65-70 people made
the trip from Highlands County
Thursday and Friday to get
Florida legislators and state
officials to support various
local issues.
Some of those officials were
already there. Bob Bullard,
chair of the county commission,
was there Wednesday with:
other county officials when the.
Florida Association of Counties
met with legislators.
Bullard said two key issues


include getting more wind-rated
hurricane shelters and help for
fiscally constrained counties -
those without high property tax
revenue.
Legislators also may help
.small business through tort
reform, economic development
with more infrastructure to
draw more business, and pro-
viding more funds for afford-
able housing, classrooms and
teachers.
Ned Hancock, school board
member, said State Senator Jeff
Atwater of North Palm Beach,
who has a house on Lakeview
Drive in Sebring and whose
mother graduated from Sebring


High School, may become a
local advocate.
Ray Royce, executive direc-
tor of the Highlands County
Citrus Growers Association
Inc.; said the county may see
agriculture help in new man-
agement practices.
He .also said one of the best
results of the meeting xas' the
chance to confer with other
members of Highlands County
on local issues.
Shelters
Bullard said there is m.one\
inii the budget this year for shel-
ters.
One of the main concerns at
the state level is to fund shelters

AVON PARK Friday
night the First Baptist Church
rocked with a joyous sound. ,
Everyone there had only one
purpose-- they were putting it
together for Sara Franza, a
much loved and respected
teacher' at Avon Elementary:
School.
Franza was taken ill around
the first of the year, and for a
time her condition was per-
ilous. Now she is beginning to
recover.
Wally Randall, Franza's
father, couldn't keep a smile off
of his face Friday night.
"Who wouldn't feel good on
a night like this," he said. "The
community's prayers are work-
ing. She's showing more
improvement than the doctors1

An evening of nriusic fol-
lowed a fund-raising barbecue.
With George Hall as master
of ceremonies, the mood was
warm and relaxed.
"Sara would eat this up," he
said. "We're videotaping it just
for her."
. Hall is the husband of anoth-
er teacher at Avon Elementary
School. Most of Avon
Elementary was on hand.
From a chorus made up of
faculty members, to Avon Park
students, to community singers
and musicians, the mood was
upbeat and toe tapping conta-
gious. They sang songs like
"Nothing is Impossible," "Put a
Little Love in Your Heart," and
"I'm Not Giving Up."

Mutual aid exercise teaches counties to communicate


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun.
SEBRING On Friday,
emergency officials from five
central Florida counties dealt
with several emergency inci-
dents hampered or caused by
severe weather.
Situations included tornadoes
in DeSoto, Hardee and Polk
counties; a lightning strike hit-
ting and damaging two train
tankers of anhydrous ammonia
in Lorida, spilling poisonous
gas; fires, flooding, wrecks, and
even a possible outbreak of bird
flu.
Fortunately, the dangers only
existed at the Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center, part of an
exercise run by the Local
Emergency Planning
Committee, part of the Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council.
The idea was to get counties
talking to each other about their
incidents and needs.
Talking.
Each county had its own sta-
tion of table. Chuck Carter,
emergency management direc-
tor for the council, had each
group speaking to each other
via radio, telephone or Groove,
a Microsoft program developed
to network telecommuters. In
this case, the e-mail and mes-
sage board program helped con-
nect emergency operations...


The system can store mes-
sages in case of power or con-
nection failure and send them
out when connections return,
according to Artie White, gov-
ernment operations consultant
with the geographic informa-
tion systems laboratory for the
State Emergency Response
Team.
Communicating
Good communication
requires people to monitor
every message and verify infor-
mation, Carter said.
For example, when
Highlands County Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichols asked for a couple, of
hazardous materials team mem-
bers from Polk County, along
with a "rail car kit" to shut off
the valves on the tank cars, he
got three technicians but no kit.
Polk County never received
his exact message, but sent as
much aid as they figured he
needed. The right decisions
were made, Nichols said, but
only because.of the experience
of those involved.
"Information is great," Carter
said. "Distorted information
causes havoc."
Puzzle pieces
Carter said counties should
also monitor each others' inci-
dents and look for patterns, as if
they all have pieces of the same

e KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Charlotte Albritton, of DeSoto County Emergency Management, confers with law enforcement and
emergency personnel from her county during Friday morning's emergency management exercise at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic Center in Sebring. Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee, Okeechobee and Polk coun-
ties had to deal with mock disasters in their own counties and ask for mutual aid from others, while
watching for patterns among the incidents.
at i. ,t


puzzle.
In one scenario, a chicken
farmer in DeSoto County, the
children of a farm worker in
Okeechobee County, and a per-,
son at a Highlands County ani-
mal supply store all develop
similar flu-like symptoms,


while baby chicks delivered
from the farm to the supply
store start dying off.
Carter said if all three coun-
ties had talked to each other,
they could have pieced together
a possible bird flu case.
As it happens, each county


followed containment, treat-
ment and notification proce-
dures. Carter warned that in a
true pandemic, all county bor-
ders would be shut to prevent
spread and because everyone
else would be dealing with the
same situation.


That would several han lper
mutual aid for other incidenits
Fortunately, according to Dr.
Paula Thaqi, director of the
Health Department for
Highlands County, a pandemic
requires more than just one or
two cases. The virus mutates
too slowly. In a true pandemic,
almost all counties would have
seen dying birds before the first
human to human case devel-
oped, she said.
Review
Overall, Nichols found the
exercise was good as both a
way to test strengths and weak-
nesses and a way to forge ties
with other agencies and coun-
ties in case they are needed
later.
He would, like to have had ao
quicker pace, to keep the exer-
cise moving, he said.
James Branca, Highlands
County Fire Services, would
also like to see controllers for
each group to help answer ques-
tions on what is happening in
the scenario.
Polk County Sheriff's Office
suggested having more law
enforcement input, because in
severe weather, deputies are
often busy directing traffic at
inoperable traffic lights.
Carter said he welcomes help
from agencies, and ,even asks
for help, when planning exer-
cises.

Teachers, support staff to be honored at Summit Awards


Special to the News-Sun
It takes special people to
bring schools to life.
Every year each school's fac-
ulty and staff select the individ-
ual among them-who they feel
most represents excellence in
education.
Teachers and staff members
who work out of the district
office each select one of their
own as well.
Each school's teacher and
support staff member of the
year then fill out a packet that
explains their goals, methods,
motivations and successes.
.Those packets are delivered
to a committee that selects one
teacher and one staff member to
represent the whole of
Highlands County.
Monday night, the Summit
Award ceremony will be held at
the First Baptist Church in Avon
Park. Here are the 32 individu-
als who will be honored there..

gifted in some way. "It is my
job as an educator to find and
build on that' area of gifted-
ness," she said.

with a combination of coopera-
tive. learning, one-on-one
instruction and hands-on mate-
rials.
Brenner was nominated for

Cord works to keep her stu-
dents' families involved in their
education. "It is known that par-
ents who are actively engaged
in helping their child at home or
at school with reading experi-
ences, have helped their child to
become more successful in the
curriculum, as a whole," she
said.

- Karen Cunningham, litera-
cy curriculum resource teacher-
at Cracker Trail Elementary
School, has been teaching in the
'county school system for 30

"Mrs. Cunningham doesn't
just teach, she molds the lives
of children through example.

that was conducive to learning.
A teacher who makes teaching
fun and strives to make her stu-
dents excel in everything they
do," parent Pat Kules said.

paramount to reach children by
getting down on their level and
making education fun. He has a
clever and creative learning
style that makes his students
excited about attending school.

HARDESTY


C a t h y
Hardesty
has taught
eig h th -
grade math
and science
at Hill-
G ustat
Middle
School for
10 years.
She feels


that teaching is a career in
which continuous growth is
necessary. She has attended
numerous in-services including
Endeavor Academy-Zero G
Experience and My NASA Data
Workshop. She was honored in
1997 with the Air Force Math
and Science Teacher Award.
Striving to meet the needs of
her students, Hardesty incorpo-
rates the SMART Board and
uses computers in daily instruc-
tion. Hardesty will do whatever
it takes to "get that little bulb of
knowledge flickering,"
Principal David Robinson said.
"She has the creativity to devel-
op motivational instructional
techniques that generate inter-
est, excitement and enthusiasm
for learning."
"With her wonderful teach-
ing techniques and the way that
she reaches out to her students,
she has won over the hearts of
many and has enriched count-
less young lives," former stu-
'dent Chrissy Weaver said.

Sallie M. Hernandez has
taught business education/voca-
tional courses in grades 9-12 at
Lake Placid High School for 30
years; Her classroom is set up
and run like an office and she
expects her students to behave
as if they are in an office. She
implemented Business Dress
Day in 1985 to prepare students
to. present themselves properly
for job interviews and employ-
ment.
In 1998, Hernandez began
setting up an authentic, student
run bank, with all the perks, for
the students at LPHS. Dragon
Bank had its grand opening in
April 1999, It allows students to
save up to -$ 1,000 pfer year with
five. percent interest on their
money. The bark employees are


the students at LPHS.
Hernandez prefers her stu-
dents to think of her. as their
supervisor rather than their
teacher. She is always willing to
help her students on a one-on-
one basis.
"She supports the students by
her attendance at sporting
events and her positive com-
ments. She has been a tremen-
dous asset to our school,"
Principal Ruth Heckman said.

John Hunter, better known
to his students as "Coach
Buddy," is an adaptive physical
education teacher. He says his

"He makes them feel like
nothing is different about them
and treats them with respect and
dignity. He is a teacher who
looks at your child as a person
who can do ... and not as a child
with a disability who cannot ...
he is one of a kind," said
Danielle Erwin, a paraprofes-
sional at Sebring Middle
School.

"Betty" Anne Lee has been
the technology resource teacher
at Sebring Middle School for
the past five years. Before that,
she taught home economics
education for many years.
Lee has
focused her
professional
develop-
ment on
staying cur-
rent with
teaching
strategies,
issues and
LEE trends that
directly
impact the
middle school students.
She understands that middle
school is a fragile time of tran-
sition that can determine the
success of the adult to be.
With the help of SMS admin-
istration, Lee has been able to
infuse the use of technology in
many aspects of the educational
process.
She is a member of the
school and district technology
committee, SMS Curriculum
Leadership Team and School
Advisory Council. This deter-
mined teacher also registered
SMS in a mobile computer lab,
contest. Lee opened the com-
puter lab before and after,
school hours so interested stu-
dents could vote. With her help,
the school won one of the five
computer labs.
"She makes everyone around
her believe the impossible is
possible," Sebring Middle
School Principal Sandra,
Whidden said.

Jane Ludwig is a varying
exceptionalities resource

potential.
Ludwig
varies her


understand-
F ing that stu-

LUDWIG different in
their abili-
ties, learning styles, socio-eco-
nomic status and background
experiences.
She instructs students in
reading and math, from kinder-
garten through fifth grade, helps
fellow teachers develop tailored
educational plans and imple-
ments remedial reading pro-
grams.
"The joy I get from teaching
and watching students learn
something new is what makes
everything worthwhile,"
Ludwig said.

Tracy Robinson has taught
seventh- and eighth-grade sci-
ence at Lake Placid Middle
School for the past four years.
She believes teachers must
be lifelong
learners in
order to
stay cur-'
rent
Robinson '
has become
a National .
Boo a r. n d i

through aROBINSON
rigorous
process of self-examination.
But she is proudest when her
students are excited about her
class.
"Tracy is the guru of hands-
on science. Her classroom is a
virtual showcase of science.
She provides every opportunity
to make science 'real' for her
kids," Katina Kramer, assistant
principal at LPMS, said. "She is
also very willing to collaborate
with others. Tracy has always
been willing to help teachers
that I felt needed a little guid-
ance. She approaches them in a
very non-threatening manner."

Smehyl is a strong advocate
of arts education. She believes
that music covers every part of
the general core curriculum in
some way or another.
"The highest level of success
will occur when the teacher,
parent and child realize they
cannot produce results without
one another." Arts "can have
just as much influence on a stu-
dent's academic success as a
core class does. It also helps to
create citizens who are motivat-
ed and confident," Smehyl said.

Jessica Lyn Smith, at Lake

"Jessica is.,an exceptional
teacher who strives for excel-
lence in her students by engag-
ing them in meaningful learning
activities and positive behavior.
Her caring and concern for her
students coupled with the high-
est expectations for them pro-
duces .an atmosphere that is a
model for teaching," Carol
Disler, principal at LPE, said.

Rachel Troutman has been
teaching ESOL students at Lake
Country Elementary School
since 1992.
She believes it is crucial to


keep current

the Internet
to research _L
areas of TROUTMAN
interest and
obtain fresh
ideas to implement in her class-
room. She works hard to create
a classroom family that is kind,
helpful and respectful.
She has built a strong rela-
tionship with the Hispanic com-
munity in Lake Placid and she
assists student learning by
preparing materials for home
use.
"She is a teacher that has a
lot of preparation and gives all
of herself as well as her love
and tenderness to the students. I
am speaking for myself as well
as for many other parents that
have had the privilege of their
children starting their academic
life next to her," Yoanka Garcia
said.

His peers honored VanDam

VanDam takes teaching very
seriously. Determined to meet
the needs of his students, he
offers a complete art program.
"I'see every student as an
unfinished piece of pottery. So
many things can affect the

'Thor' hikes Appalachian Trail to prep for Pacific Crest


West coast hike to


take six months


By PHIL ATInNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Most hikers
might hike a week or more on
the Appalachian Trail for a get-
away.
Sebring resident Thor
Knutsen did it last week to
train.
He left Sebring on March 20
for a 10-day hiking trip from
Springer Mountain, Ga., to
Nantahala Outdoor Center,
about 140 miles away, and
about 13 miles southwest of
Bryson City, N.C.
Knutsen didn't plan on hik-
ing the Appalachian Trail end-
to-end; he's already done that.
Instead, he'll hike the Pacific
Crest Trail this summer.
SIn 1999, Knutsen hiked the
Appalachian Trail'from Georgia
to Maine, and has a tattoo on his
right calf to prove it.
The Pacific Crest Trail fol-
lows mountains from Mexico to

there loaded up with that kind
of equipment, waiting for QCs
and inspectors is a waste.
Sitting for three to four hours
will cost you a grand."
Crosson and his team could
have tripled what they did with
better organization. "And that's
just me,"' he said. "I saw people
who had .to. sell expensive
equipment just to get the money
to go home. because they were
stuck in an area where they
weren't able to do; anything. I
saw millions of dollars worth of
equipment sitting in a parking
lot for three straight months
without moving."
Rule changes, which
occurred almost daily, also,
intertered with productivity.
These factors explained C-in


Canada through California,
Oregon and Washington state.
The two trails look the same on
the map, but the Pacific Crest
Trail is actually 500 miles
longer. It's graded better -
fewer steep climbs and has
more switchbacks.
Knutsen said that makes the
trail less rocky and a faster hike.
Deciding
Knutsen got interested in the
Pacific Crest Trail when a
female friend of his finished
both trails, the Continental
Divide Trail, and even hiked a
couple of them twice, in the
time since he hiked the
Appalachian Trail.
She even wrote a guide book
about it, if for no other reason
than to correct some of the
established guides, Knutsen
said.
Training
After five years of not doing


only 22 percent of the cleanup
was completed six months after
the storm's passing. "At that
rate, I guarantee you there will
still be blue roofs and debris
three years from now," he said.
In spite of everything,
Crosson will never forget the
feeling he got from helping the
people who were in such need,
Time spent pulling the roofs
off of flattened houses and peel-
*ing the layers to find a blanket
crocheted by someone's grand-
mna for them 30 years ago,, a
child's first stuffed animal, or a
flag from a granddad's coffin
didn't bother Crosson. "I loved
that kind of delay and would do
that any day," he said. "These
people asked nicely, without
any expectations, and would
put on a hard hat and climb
right in there with you." .
Knox in,- that diqslaccd f.am-
.*il ies' ill like l ha e no sei l-l


through-trail hikes, Knutsen
started with nine-mile walks
around Lake Jackson, three
times each week, to get in
shape.
Walking a flat circle is no
way to get ready for hills, which
is one reason he returned to the
Appalachian Trail.
Another reason is he needed
to test his equipment.
The first time Knutsen wore
his hiking boots around Lake
Jackson, they blistered. His
New Balance tennis shoes were
lighter and didn't blister his
feet. He plans on taking. those
for the Pacific Crest Trail.
"Why have the extra
weight?" he asked.
Equipping
In the five years since his
Appalachian Trail hike, his
'pack has gotten smaller and
smaller. When he took off on
the Appalachian Trail in spring
1999, his pack, when set on the
ground, stood to his waist.
By the end of. that trip, it
stood to just above his knees, a
result of mailing home e.,eri -
thing he didn't need and replac-
ing some equipment with


balance of normalcy in their
lives for a long time, largely
because of a faulty system,
Crosson returned home at the
end of February with a heavy
heart.
"I feel there are good people
who should be getting the help
they need in a time% manner,"
he said. "The government will
.spend the same amount of
money no matter how .long it
takes to do the job -- the people
who suffer are the homeowners
and the contractors."
Having thought that he
appreciated his family and this
community before his journey,
he now knows differently. "You
don't realize how -much you
have here in this small town to
rely on," he .aid. "It would take
me at least four hours to name
all of the thing' I hale here'for
which Lam grateful, ibat I never
really knew I had."


lighter stock.
Heading out last week, it
stood about mid-calf, he said.
He wasn't going to need as
much food, for one thing, but
better materials and smarter


packing are the big reasons.
"Eighty percent of my gear is
new," Knutsen said.
That means titanium and car-
bon graphite rather than alu-


minum, and thinner but warmer
clothes.
Knutsen said it's definitely
important to test out the tent.
That will be home for the entire
Pacific Crest Trail hike.

Unsung heroes save the day


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Cross Country Automotive Services at
3310 U.S. 27 S., is part'of a growing trend in American
business customized, personal service, provided
from a distance. The new trend is made possible by cut-
ting edge technology a combination of computers,
advanced telephone systems and sometimes even satel-
lites.
Known generally as call centers, these businesses
provide a live person, real time response to questions as
far ranging as insurance quotes, subscription informa-
tion, or technical assistance.
Cross Country's call center in Sebring, provides
emergency roadside service to consumers in all 50
states and Canada.
The company does this from only four locations.
They are Sebring, Medford, Mass.; Tucson, Ariz.; and
Sault SainteMarie, Ontario.
The computer and telephone systems combine. to
channel incoming calls in fractions of seconds, and
each center handles calls from all over North America
and Hawaii.
A service agent in Sebring might help a stranded
motorist in Arizona during one phone call and from
Bangor, Maine in the next.
Nationally, Cross Country has a total of 1,800
employees who handled 4.6 million dispatches in 2005.
Company officials expect to send out 6 million dis-
patches in 2006.
Founded in 1972, as the Cross Country Motor Club
by Sidney Wolk, the son of Russian immigrants, it
began as a small private company.
Thirty-four years later Cross Country Automotive
Services is now national, and has responded to 83 mil-
lion callers since it was founded. It remains a privately
owned, family managed business.
Barry Bittner, director of the Sebring center, proudly
pointed out that Cross Country is ranked as one of the
top 50 service agencies in the country. He added the
company's goal is to reach the top 10, on the way to
becoming- number one.
He described his employees as unsung heroes,
because they quietly save the day for people all day
long. Yet they do this from behind the scenes, rarely
meeting the people they've saved.
"They're the road doctors, the ones who are going to
fix the problem," he said.
iti fact, most people taking advantage of Cross
Country sern ices. are unaware the. are dealing- \ith
Cross Country.


This is the call center, the heart and soul of Cross
Country Automotive Services. It is manned 24 hours a
day, seven days a week. The agents working here take
calls from all over the country and Canada from people
whose cars have broken down, been in accidents, or sim-
ply won't start. The agents then call local providers who
go to the rescue.

That is because the company contracts with other
businesses to provide eniergency assistance for them.
For example, someone with a Progressive or Liberty
Mutual insurance towing plan, will actually be calling
Cross Country. The same is true for people with credit
cards that offer roadside service, like Master Card or
Discover.
Cross Country currently, provides emergency road-
side assistance service for 80 percent of the automotive
brands sold in the United States, including Toyota and
BMW. . .. .

RESCUE
Continued from 13A
I couldn't visualize anyone
running around screaming,
"Stop the presses." at Cross
Country. Instead, the atmos-
phere leant itself to strolling
and speaking in whispers.
The newsroom can get
noisy, especially when all the
reporters are in, on the phone
and typing.
But at Cross Country it was
just the opposite. The service
agents work in teams and sit
together. Standing by the
empty desks of later shift
agents, it was remarkably
quiet.
It was only when I
approached the area where a
team was working, that I could'
hear anything at all.
The sound was all -voices -
but the pleasant rhythmic kind
you hear when people have a
purpose. The voices blend
together with positive energy,
no single one stands out, add
the clink of silverware and
you'd think you were in a pop-
ular, well-heeled restaurant.
And while the gray and
black decor could have been
austere, there are relieving
touches that warmed it.
Service agents may person-
alize their space with little
touches of color, and the com-
pany has a reward system that
uses balloons tied to prizes.
The balloons are festive and ,
break up the monotony of the
rows of desks.
,, So I found the workplace
soothing.
Which is a good thing,
because the voices I heard over
the telephone were anything
but calm and collected.o
I was paired with Sharon
Brown, who has worked at
Cross Country for two and a
half years.
We didn't get much of a.
chance to talk, because she was
constantly busy.
In the first place, it was rush
hour in California and
Washington.
And in the second, Texas
had been inundated with rain
the day before.. It was still dry-
ing out (at Cross Country they
call such poor weather condi-
.tions, code blue. When only
emergency vehicles are



HEROES
Continued from 13A
six time zones,' including
Alaska and Hawaii. That means
it's almost always rush hour
somewhere. And emergency
service has to be available
seven days a week, 24 hours a
day.
So teams work in shifts at
Cross Country, and there are
people on duty, around the
clock. That means there is
some flexibility when creating
a work schedule.
The people who work for
Cross Country don't have to
have prior experience, although
some computer knowledge is a
plus.
The most important quality
in achieving success, Bittner
said, is to have the right atti-
tude. Wanting to help people
and having patience are essen-
tial qualities he added, because
customers who call in are
sometimes frustrated and upset,
or scared and alone, so keeping
one's head is extremely impor-
tant.
"We'll take that attitude,"
Bittner said, "and teach you
how to use it."
Training is extensive during
the first three weeks on the job,
and it continues throughout
one's employment.
There is a private training
room where, once a week, a
service agent will go with a
supervisor to take incoming
calls. The supervisor can then
critique performance, to praise
it or correct it, without an audi-
ence listening in.


The company is aware that
listening to people in distress,
can cause stress of its own. So
incentives of all kinds have
been built into the system,
including coupons, prizes and
cash bonuses rewarding good
work.
There is a quiet room to
withdraw to with overstuffed
furniture, and a large break
room, and an outdoor area with
picnic tables for smokers.
Pay increases with experi-
ence, and typically varies
betw een $7 and $8.50.

allowed on the road, like dur-
ing a hurricane, they call it
code black).
The situation in Texas had
led to so many breakdowns,
the local towing companies
were lagging behind, some by
24 hours. That meant Brown
was having to soothe some
deeply frustrated people.
For example, a man called
from Texas very upset because
he had called for a tow the day
before, and no one had yet
arrived.
Brown first made sure the
caller and his car were in a safe

place. Then she asked ques-
tions to completely understand
the situation. This took a few
minutes. At the same time, she
made sure the caller under-
stood she was there to find a
solution. He began to calm
down.
Explaining that she was put-
ting him on hold to make
phone calls on his behalf, she
next tried to reach a local tow-
ing company.
No sooner than the first tow-
ing company answered the
phone, then they put her on
hold.
Shaking her head, Brown
said that was a very bad sign.
It probably meant he was still
catching up from the day
before.-
Sure enough, when the tow-
ing dispatcher finally got on
the line, she couldn't promise a
rescue for at least two. to three
hours.
Instead of settling, however,
Brown called another towing
service, a little further from the
stalled car, but still an accept-
able distance away in bad
weather, Brown said, you want
the towing company to be as
close to the car as possible.


Barry Bittner, director of the Cross Country center, and June Himmelberger, an operations manager,
stand in front of one of the boxes of critical telephone lines that makes the business possible. Cross
Country Automotive Services provides rapid response to stranded drivers all over the country and
Canada. Last year the company's four call centers dispatched help to 4.6 million callers.


That company promised to.
have a tow to the car within 90
minutes, so Brown went ahead
and made the arrangements.
Then she got back on the
line with the frustrated car
owner, who calmed down
appreciably as she described
who was coming and when
they could be expected.
After she completed the call
Brown explained to me how an
automated calling system
would follow up on her work.
Cross Country expects every
dispatch to be completed in 44
minutes. That is, the tow truck
should arrive in thattime.
Therefore, an automated call
is made to the stranded driver
52 minutes after a tow is
arranged. The driver presses
keys to indicate if help has
arrived or not. If riot, the serv-


ice agent is automatically noti-
fied and he or she gets back in
touch with the motorist.
In a way, Brown was lucky
the morning I was there. All of
the callers were in safe places
and knew exactly where they
were.
Well, there was one lady in
Arizona who wasn't with her
car, she'd left that at a gasoline
station and gone home. So
when the towing company
arrived, there was no one there
and they couldn't wait a
fact the lady had a hard time
accepting.
Finally, however, she got to
her car, and understood she
couldn't leave it until the tow-
ing company got back.
Of course by that time, hav-
ing made one round trip for
nothing, the towing company


wasn't quite as enthusiastic.
Part of Brown's job is to be
sure a towing company gets
proper credit for the work it
does, which means she sets, up
purchase orders. In this case
she made sure the towing com-
pany got two, because it hadn't
been their fault the' car'wasn't
towed the first time around.
For every call where the
driver knows where he is, there
is one. where the driver is total-
ly lost.
Then the service agent has to
become a detective and figure
it out.
Telemetrics, using global
positioning devices or cell
phones to locate vehicles, is
coming on line. But without
them it takes some figuring.
On highways, mile markers
are a big help. Out in the coun-

try, however; things can be
more difficult. Often the serv-
ice agent has to rely on cre-
ative questioning, and a towing
company's local knowledge.
I was told of one family who
broke down in the middle of
nowhere. All they could see
was a body of water. The serv-
ice agent mentioned that to the
tow truck driver who immedi-
ately said, "Oh that's the big
pond, I can get there in a
minute."
Now I wasn't allowed to
take part in the phone calls, for
good reason as it does take
training, but I was given a
headset and allowed to listen
in.
Brown said she gets about
50 calls in an eight hour shift.
She said she loves the work.
When she arrived at Cross
Country, she had no computer
or typing skills. But to watch
her fingers fly over the key-
board, and operate the mouse,
you'd have thought she'd been
doing it forever.
"It's definitely not boring,"
she said, "but you do have to
be patient." Also thorough.
An agent has to get it right
the first time.
After all, if you're the one
sitting out in open country, lost
and a long way from home,
and it's late, dark, and raining,
with the kids in the car and
you're tired, you're counting
on people like Brown to come
to your rescue.

Have you felt the impact of organ donation?
No matter where you are in this country, you
don't have to look far to find someone who's had
an organ transplant, or to find a family who faced
and made the decision to give the gift of life
through organ and tissue donation. There are
more than 400,000 transplant recipients in the
United States alone.
In the Tampai Bay area, more than 360 people
received transplants.last year and nearly 400 gen-
erous families made many of those transplants
and the organ and tissue transplants of others,
across the nation, .possible.. Scores more were
cornea donors, providing the gift of sight to those
in need.'
This April, during the federally sanctioned
NaIIInjin Don.iie Life NMointh. LifeLink of Florida
honors the spirit of those individuals who make
transplants po.,ible organ, tissue and eye
donors. LifeLink celebrates the lives of those
who have received their second chance arid
finally, LifeLink calls attention to the more than
90,000 men, women and children who still wait
across the United States.

Renfro's Outdoor Sports owner Dot Renfro can embroider almost any design on almost any type of
material with her new embroidery equipment.



Renfro sews up business


by doing embroidery


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Dot (Dorothy) Renfro
recently opened a home-based business offering
machine embroidery.
Her motto is no job is too big or too small.
She's willing to embroider for one item or 1,000.
A customer can bring their own garment or
choose from her catalog of uniforms, shirts,
pants, etc. Although she charges a digitizing fee
for setting up your company logo, she has a book
of thousands to choose from at no. cost from the
Dakota Collection.
Caps for the Veterans of Foreign Wars or
American Legion, shirts for schools, bowling
teams and office staff are just a few offerings.
She likes to embroider fun shirts saying for
example, "Grandma's Little Angels" and then
listing the names. They have special meanings
and make a nice gift. Sometimes a child's shirt is
embroidered with "I love my papa."
Renfiro not only embroiders golf shirts and
tov.wed bhti i -, g olf bags. She'll monogram wed-
ding s.hccie. pillowcases and towels. She can


i!:'






;l

-.^i


embroider names on caps for hunting and fishing
clubs as well as baseball teams.
Renfro previously worked at Top Shop in
Avon Park for 13 years, and feels she offers top-
of-the-line workmanship. She provides a fast
turnaround of usually a week, plus a courteous,
reliable service. She also feels she is able to offer'
competitive prices because she operates out of
her home.
Born and raised in Missouri, Renfro has lived
in Avon Park since 1978, and in 1989 married
Freddie Renfro from Avon Park. He is a licensed
gun dealer and has offered guns, ammunition and
archery equipment from their home since 1990.
She has run the concession stand for the third
year at the baseball park in Avon Park for the
Dixie Youth Little League and recently joined the
Avon Park Chamber of Commerce and plans to
be an active volunteer for it.
Renfro's Outdoor Sports is at 19 Lawhon St.
Her hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information,
call her at 452-6988 or 443-1621. Her fax num-
. ber is 452-6377, or e-mail-her at j,/JiJ. .'.,-

have three of their children
working at the business.
With business degrees from
Florida State University in
Tallahassee, sons Tom (15 years
ago) and Jim (10 years ago)
joined the family business. And
now, their daughter Kelly has
joined the family business.:
After Kelly graduated in
2002 with a bachelor's in interi-
or design from Florida State,
she worked approximately two
years for The Villages. It is a
large 55-plus development near
Ocala. As the assistant facility
manager, she was in charge of
projects from beginning to end.
She did space planning and
design, purchasing furnishings,
making sure everything was
installed correctly and then
maintaining it.
"Since The Villages owned
all their commercial facilities, I
gained an amazing amount of
experience. The Villages is like
Disney for adults. It not only
required classic, but also whim-
sical elements," Kelly said.
One specific fast-paced proj-
ect Kelly worked on while there
was Lake Sumter Landing. At
an approximate cost of $100
million, it was built in just one
year.
Later she worked for Hoar
Construction in Sarasota as part
of the construction team on the
project' Main Street at the
Lakewood Ranch. There she.
assisted the project manager
and learned the contractor's
needs. She felt fortunate for the

Kelly Griffin, new interior designer with Griffin's Carpet Mart, chooses some d?cor elements as she
examines an architectural drawing.


opportunity to work with pro-
fessional men with more than
40 year's construction experi-
ence.
"I learned a lot coordinating
different aspects of the project.
It was a great experience,"
Kelly said.
Griffin's Carpet Mart has
always handled flooring, patio
furniture, custom window treat-
ments, draperies and wallpaper.
Plans are to change the show-
room, and make it bigger and
better.
"It's great to be back in
Sebring. The city is ready and
now I am also. And we both
have a lot to offer," Kelly said.,
It's a long and involved
process to be licensed .with the
American Society of Interior
Designers. First, one must grad-
uate with a four-year degree
and then work two years under
a.licensed-designer before being
eligible to take the licensing
exam, National Counsel of
Interior Designers
Qualification. The exam is two
parts: Written multiple-choice
questions and a hand-drawing
practicum where a person must
solve a commercial and resi-
dential design problem. Only
then can ASID designation be


used. Kelly will complete her
remaining practicum part of the
exam in April and feels she'll
breeze through it.
The state of Florida requires
the exam to be passed before a ,
person can use the ASID desig-
nation. Besides being a higher
professional standard, the
NCIDQ qualification allows a
designer to sign and seal interi-
or construction documents.
Griffin's Carpet Mart is proud
of Kelly as their dynamic new
professional interior designer,
and feel they have a winning
combination because they are
backing her up with the fami-
ly's 28 years of business experi-
ence.
"So far I've just focused on
my career. But I have big plans
and goals. I'm a hometown girl,
was raised here and have ties to
family and childl-ood friends.
Although we're already fiem-
bers of the Sebring Chamber, I
want to become much more
civically involved," Kelly said.
Griffin's Carpet Mart is at
560 U.S. 27 North, near the I-
Hop restaurant. Call 385-4796
for a consultation with Kelly.
Hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday and
from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

SFCC helps students make career choices


News-Sun
AVON PARK One of the '
state's highly-rated colleges,
South Florida Community
College, annually puts together
a marketing package that offers
eighth-grade students samples
of many career paths.
Wednesday, about 170 Lake
Placid Middle School students
took advantage of this offer and
spent the morning touring, the
campus, in groups working
hands on, and. getting a wealth
of information that guidance
counselor Lois King described
as necessary as these students
begin to look toward their
future. All middle schools in the


county take advantage of this
tour at SFCC.
Five bus loads later, this
eager group of students -
about four years from high
school graduation filed into,
the University Center, where
college President Dr. Norm
Stephens welcomed the group
and explained why this visit
was important.
"We think it's important to
begin talking to kids before
they get to high school about
what kind of high school pro-
gram they have to take to get in
college, and one way to do this
is to bring them out to the col-
lege, and show them what we

have, the kinds of opportunities
that are available to them, to get
them excited and interested,"
Stephens said.
Planning for the future
begins in the middle school,
before these students enter high
school. If a student has an idea
of a possible career choice, high
school guidance counselors
want to know about it.
SFCC 'offers more than 50
career courses and many -bac-
calaureate programs through its
four campuses in Highlands,
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
King called the SFCC visit "a
fantastic opportunity to supple-
ment what we've already been
doing here at our school."
King, who has been working
"extensively" with eighth-grade
students making career choices,
said, "Statistics show that train-
ing beyond high school is really
important to ensure being more
productive and advancing .on
the job."
She said that the SFCC visit
"certainly gave them the oppor-
tunity to see what programs are
available in Highlands County
to get that additional training
and build on South Florida
Community College as a
springboard for going for a
four-yedr degree."
The visit "gave them a feel
for college," she added.
King said that most students
felt the trip was worthwhile.
"From most of the students
I've talked with, they enjoyed
the trip and got something out
of it; they thought it was a pos-
itive experience."
Stephens said, "It's important
to these kids, it's important to
the public schools, and it's
inmiprfant i to the college e that we
do this."

McCrary pleads not guilty to hitting deputy


News-Sun
SEBRING Frances
McCrary, 79, has -reportedly
plead not. guilty to leaving the
scene of an accident with
injury.
She is scheduled-for a pre-
trial conference on May, 18.
Florida Highway Patrol
reports said her car grazed
Highlands County Sheriff's
Deputy Roger St. Laurent at
12:24 a.m. Jan. 31, while he had
another vehicle stopped on U.S.
27 at Lake Byrd Road.
The passenger side \ ie munir-


ror caught him in his left rear
pocket and left elbow, spinning'
him and leaving paint transfer
on his pants.
Injuries weren't severe, and
he returned to work within three,
days.
However, McCrary, who was
driving from Sunray to pick up
her terminally, ill: husband at
Florida Hospital that night.
According to Florida Highway
Patrol, she allegedly said she,
knew she had hit somethiriL,
but did f.ot stop at the scene 1'r
report it at the hospital.,


Allegedly, she was in the out-
side lane when her car .hit St.
Laurent, who was standing on
the shoulder of the highway.
Under Florida's '.'move over
law," Florida motorists must
move over one lane from the.
lane closest to any stopped
emergency vehicle or wrecker
on highways with two or more
lanes on that side of the road.
If they don't have room to
move over, they must slow
down 20 mile per hour less
than [he posted limit.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Two honest people shine light on human race


You've heard
the phrase, "hon- LAURA
esty is the best pol-
icy." Sometimes, Laurc
looking at the
news, you wonder
if anyone believes
in that anymore.
Let's face it, honesty has
taken it in the teeth sometimes.
How many of us talk about
honesty but have been guilty of
driving over the speed limit?
Or given the time of year it is,
how many people cheat on their
taxes? And don't start me on
some politicians.
That's why I found the fol-
lowing stories so encouraging.
In a world where it seems
everyone is "looking out for
Number One," these two people
looked temptation -in the eye
and did what was right.anyway.
First we will take the case of
John Suhrhoff; a .respiratory
therapist in California who hap-'
.pened upon a purse that had
been left on a park bench in
Sausalito.,
When he looked inside, he
found jewelry. Nice jewelry.
The article I read about
Suhrhoff said the jewelry and


S
zi


cash in the purse
LOOK were worth about
$1 million. A nice'
Ware find.
Now, Suhrhoff
apparently thought
the jewelry was
costume jewelry. Even so, there
was $500 cash in the purse. It
would be tempting for the man
to take the money who
would catch him?
But Suhrhoff is made of bet-
ter stuff than that. He turned the
bag and its contents over to
police. The bag belonged to a
woman from Toronto, who had
been in California for a wed-
ding.
Suhrhoff didn't think what he
had done was a big deal. Given
that the police had told the
woman and her family that the
chances of the bag being
returned were slim, I would beg
to differ.:
Now, we go from California
to New Orleans where Trisha
Wright was spending her spring
break helping to clean out
homes that had been damaged
during Hurricane Katrina. That
act alone tells you what kind of
person this 19-year-old woman


She was in one house, clean-
ing out an. air-conditioning vent
when she noticed that papers
coming out of the space weren't
just. any. pieces of paper. She
saw a stack of $100 bills. And
there was more.
An unofficial count of the
cash came to more than
$30,000: That's some pricey
insulation.
Bless Tricia Wright's heart
and the hearts of their fellow
students. $30,000 would buy a
lot of pizza. Or shoes. Or even
pay for a lot of college. But the
students promptly brought the
money to the attention of the
organizers of their church mis-
sion.
The owner of the house was
found and floored. She thinks
the money may have been put
there by her father, who had
been wary of banks when he
was alive. She herself had no
idea it was there.
The money was- the only
thing salvageable in her hpme,
which had been flooded to the
eaves.
The students said there was
no question of keeping the


money.
You know what strikes me
about both stories? Both Wright
and Suhrhoff could have ration-
alized taking the money. No one
knew they had it. In Wright's
case, no one apparently knew it
existed. They could have
claimed that God had dropped it
in their path. They could have
asked themselves, "Who would ~
know?"
The thing is I think they'
knew the answer to that last
question. One thing I've
learned in my 48 years on the
planet is to live with the thought
of two beings in this universe:
God, because one day you will
have to stand in judgment

Reform more

than one area
Editor:,
During the f990s, an aver-
age of more than 1.3 million
immigrants, legal and illegal,
settled in the United States
each year. Between January
2000 and March 2002, 3.3 mil-
lion additional immigrants
have arrived.. In less than 50
years, the U.S. Census Bureau
projects that immigration will
cause the population of the'
United States to increase from
its present 288 million to more
than 400 million.
I The two "magnets" that
attract illegal aliens are jobs
and family connections. The
,typical Mexican worker earns
one-10th his American counter-
part, and numerous American
businesses are willing to hire
cheap, submissive compliant
labor from abroad; such busi-
nesses are seldom punished
because our country lacks a
viable system to verify new
hires' work eligibility. In addi-
tion, communities of recently
arrived legal immigrants help
create immigration networks
. used by illegal aliens and serve
as incubators for illegal immi-
gration, providing jobs, hous-
ing, and entree to America for
illegal-alien relatives and 'fel-
low countrymen.
Because every part of our
immigration system has been
exploited by terrorists, we can-
riot reform just one area, but
must address the problems that
exist throughout. The solution


'Journalists, die doing their jobs, which is more than

you can say for lobbyists, TV commentators or

corporate lawyers.'
JON CARROLL, columnist, San Francisco Chronicle, 2005


is not to single out Middle
Easterners for exclusion or
selective enforcement. Instead
we need to more-carefully
check the backgrounds of all
visa applicants, better police
the borders, strictly enforce the
law within the country, and,
most importantly, reduce the
level of immigration to, give
government agencies the
breathing space necessary to
implement fundamental
reforms.
Because inummnigration
increases the supply' of U.S.
labor, it reduces wages or
makes jobs more scarce for
natives. Job competition
between immigrants and
natives is especially fierce -at
the bottom of the labor market,
because so many immigrants
are employed in the low-
skilled/low-wage segments. of
the economy. When the 'aver-
age American wage exceeds
the average Mexican wage by a
factor of 10,. even the' most
menial American job'can be a
forceful inducemeAt to emi-
grate.
The large number of immi-
grants with low levels of edu-
cation' means that immigration
policy has dramatically
increased the supply of workers
with less than a high school
degree. Although immigrants
comprise about 12 percent of
America's workforce, they
account for 31 percent of high
school dropouts in the work-
force. This means that any
effects on the wages or job
opportunities of natives will
disproportionately affect less-
skilled workers. Immigrants
are 60 percent more likely to be
employed in low-skilled occu-
pations than are native-born
workers.
As a consequence, poverty
in the United States is increas-
ingly being driven by immigra.-
tion policy. Between 1979 and
1997, immigrant households
increased their representation
in, the U.S. population by 68
percent, but over that same
period their share of the total
poor population increased 123
percent. And the gap between
the immigrant and native
poverty rates is widening -
this gap tripled between 1979
and 1997.

LETTERS
Continued from 4B
One of the factors that is
thought to mitigate the conse-
quences of immigrant poverty
is entrepreneurship, with immi-
grant small businessmen sup-
posedly recharging our nation's
creative spirit. Unfortunately,
research shows that while
immigrants were once signifi-
cantly more entrepreneurial
than natives, that is no longer
true.
Though most immigrants
will undergo a superficial
assimilation however broken
our immigration policy is, there
is more to Americanization
than learning English and get-
ting a job. The development of
a visceral, emotional attach-
ment to America and its history,
or "patriotic assimilation," is
increasingly unlikely when the
schools and the culture at large
are skeptical, even hostile, to
patriotism and when technolo--
gy enables immigrants to main-
tain strong psychological and
physical ties to their countries
of origin.
Mexico's Presideot Fox is
laughing all the way to the
bank. He gets more money
from the U.S. illegal immi-
grants, by them sending their
money back to Mexico than his
growth national product.
I believe it is not that big or'
small businesses cannot find
good hard working American
.citizens to fill their jobs, it is
that these businesses want the
work done for nothing. I bet
that. if CEO's jobs were being
'filled by illegal immigrants for
cash under the table or with
. minimum wage and no stock
options nor no health care ben-
efits, you can be assured our
United States borders would be
closed immediately.
I don't blame anyone for
wanting to come to the USA to


better themselves and their
families, but under the rules
that apply to everybody coming
from all over the world. No one
is entitled to come to this coun-
try in any other fashion, but
legally. Until our elected offi-
cials in this country decides
that our sovereign borders and
our ports mean something to
the safety and security of the
American people, we will con-
tinue to be endangering our
families.
Call, write or e-mail your
senators and ask them, why
they are not enforcing our cur-
rent immigration rules and reg-
ulations.? Why are they sup-
porting legislation that under-
mines the security of this
nation and the people that they
were hired to protect? Your
voice and vote is all that is left
- use it or lose it!

Morals lost a
long time ago
Editor:
Please, someone help me
understand what the big bru-ha
ha is all about concerning ille-.
gal immigrants sneaking across
the open borders.
They've been doing that for
years and, in some cases, lead-
ership has looked the other
wiy. Others have hired them
for their own help. when they
knew their was no green card.
America lost sight of hon-
esty, integrity, decency and
good morals a long time ago.
Our government is corrupt,
laws are disregarded, babies are
raped, police lie and write false
reports. People. often are falsely
accused just'"to close the case."
Men and women spend years.
and years in prisons for crimes
they never committed. Others
are put to death. Gary Graham
(Texas) comes to mind. One
witness, a white woman, at


dusk. "identified him." George
W. Bush let him be put to
death. In many cases the lack of
DNA had nothing to do with
unjust sentencing.
Look at George W. Bush, our
president, and Dick Cheney.
our vice president. Both are
liars, war mongers and with
their buddy Tony Blair, guilty
of sending our young men and
women to their deaths by open-
ing up the horrible can of
worms called war. Just to get a
"high" on military power.
.Not one of those thugs had
any vision of what massive
killing is all about.
Think of the thousands that
have been needlessly killed
because of the lies this "admin-
istration" has cooked up and
the lengths they have gone to,
in trying to justify a war that
was unprovoked.
Now the world hates us and
rightfully so. We have no self
respect or credibility left.
If immigrants are stupid
enough to cross the borders, let
them do it!
Every one of this lying cor-
rupt administration is denying
the truth. Trying to gaslight
(confuse and di.-toimi the
American people attempting to
cover their backsides.
Regardless of how many of
our young :people are being
killed every day, Republicans
just keep listening and believ-
ing Bush's lies. Yes, idiots it is
a civil war in hi.q and our peo-
ple are caught in the cross fire.
So when do we impeach
these criminals in Athe While
House, tar and feather them and
ride them out of town oh a,
pole?
Do you plan to wait until the
last American soldier is sent
home in-a, body bag?

Highlands Regional Medical Center


patient receives prototype metal hip


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The hip proto-
type of the future recently
strolled out of Highlands
Regional Medical Center in
patient John Pickard.
Pickard was the first recipi-
ent of the 47-millimeter large
head metal-on-metal hip
replacement in the county per-
formed by Dr. Vernon Morris Jr.
In February 2006 only two
orthopedic surgeons 'in the
state, one in Tampa and one in
Miami, received this state of the
art system. ,A close working
relationship with the Tampa
Orthopedic Institute allowed
access to this system for
Highlands Regional Medical
Center and Dr. Morris.
"Unfortunately, there may be
a local misinterpretation that
Highlands County is the last to
receive the latest medical tech-
nology and advancements,"
said Bob Ziegenfuss, account
representative with DePuy
Orthopaedics, a Johnson and
Johnson company. "This is not
true. In fact, HRMC is on the
cutting edge for orthopedic
implant and materials. Not only
is Dr. Morris using the very lat-
est metal on metal material, but
he is also using a minimally-
invasive surgical procedure for
his patients who qualify."
Hip replacement materials
have evolved over the past 40
years. The early implants were
constructed of all metal compo-,
nents. However, the manufac-
turing technology and machin-
ing tolerances were only as
good as the technology of the
time. Some patients had trouble
with microscopic metal shav-
ings that would irritate the joint.
In the 1970s, hip and knee
replacements began a long tra-
dition of including one compo-
nent of polyethylene, or very
hard plastic. The drawback to
the plastic was that it would
eventually wear out, possibly
deform, and have to be
replaced. The hip "socket"
componentt was made of a large
-- mass of plastic to allow for
more, years of wear. However,

metal on metal prototype hip.


that required the corresponding
metal ball or 'head to be small
and only about 28 millimeters
in diameter.
During the 1990s research
for better wear materials pro-
duced a ceramic implant. The-
socket did not have to be as big
or thick and therefore bear upon
a bigger 32-millimeter ceramic
head. The flaw in the new
ceramic material was that
ceramic material is brittle and
sometimes cracked causing it to
have to be replaced.
Morris had the distinction in,
2003 of having been the first
orthopedic surgeon in the coun-
ty to implant the new, improved
ceramic hip replacement.

SEBRING Good
Shepherd Hospice and Day
Break Behavioral Health
Services are combing resources
to create a support group for
individuals who have lost loved
ones to suicide.
The agencies agreed to work
together to provide this special-
ized grief counseling for more
than one reason.
Unfortunately suicide num-
bers are rising, which means
there are more surviving family
members who need help work-
ing through their grief.
But as important as the rising
numbers is the different quality
of the grieving.
"The issues go so far beyond
ordinary grief," Kathy Wilde
said. She is a Good Shepherd


grief counselor who will be one
of the two leaders of the support
group. Many surviving family
members are burdened with
feelings of shame or guilt, she
said.
Typically suicide takes a
family by surprise and sur-
vivors tend to question them-
selves after.
"Even if you were worried,"
Wilde said, "the suicide is
unexpected. It's only in hind-
sight family members see the
missed clues." But, "what
could I have done to stoif it?"
becomes a typical regret.
Charlie Stroup, an. outreach
counselor with Daybreak
Behavioral Health, who will be
working with Wilde, said that it.
is essential that grieving indi-
viduals have a safe space to ,


work through their feelings.
People need to be able to
open up she explained. Support
groups help because everyone
has shared the experience.
Stroup said the one comment
she hears most often is, "I just
want someone to listen."
Both Wilde .and Stroup
expect to create other suicide
support groups in the future as
demand dictates.
Beginning Tuesday, a six-
week Suicide Grief Support
Group will meet at the
Daybreak CO.Luneliii.- Center at
4421 Sun 'n L.AkL BI d. Suite A
- that's on the south side of the
first turning circle.
There is no cost. Registration
is required. Call 314-4357 or
402-1066'to register or for more
information.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Unseen

wildflowers
The bumps and thrills of
the off-road drive in the
Rocky Mountains left my
stomach somewhere else
other than with me.
However, I not only sur-
vived (as I prayed without
ceasing); I got to see places
I would have never seen
without the rough ride.
I wondered how our son
knew where to drive with-
out road signs to guide him
and how we,d find our way
back. But, the trek wasn't
unknown to him just to
his dad and me.
And, when we reached
certain plateaus and took in
the vistas, it was more than
the thin air that took our
breath away. The views and
the unbelievable stillness
belied the jarring, thumping
ad% venture of moments
before.
But, what astounded me
most was the beauty of the
wildflowers. I stooped to
caress the soft petals,
admired the varieties and -
almost picked one to
press into a book as a
memento.
But like a child who, at
the sound of a parent's'
voice, pulls his hand away
from something he should-
n't ha'e, my son's words ,
echo in my mind. "Leave it
there for someone else to
enjoy." And, so, I pulled my
hand a% aN, and took apic-
ture with mN mind.
There wouldn't be too
many who might Nenture
this \ a\. I thought; but, he's
'right. Let the wildflower
bless someone else as it has
me.
Isn't it interesting that
God chooses to place beau-
ty elen %\here it won't be
seen by many eyes? And, he
doesn't skimp either.
We may think that beauty
seen by many is more valu-
able. but. not so in God's
economy,. And what about
the rough ride it takes to get
there.? We needn't be over-
w0helmed because the way is
not new to him.
NManN of God's faithful
followers work in hard-to0-
get-to. obscure places. The
beauty of one soul ray take
\ears to nurture and blos-
som. Onlookers may won-
der what value, there is in
the intense, seemingly less '
than gratify ing work of that
laborer.
But God sees the beauty
of the w orker and the fruit
of his labors. And, like the
wildfldwers that are rarely
seen, he gives great atten-
tion to every detail and
complexion. And the bless-
ings follow.
"Walk out into the fields
and look at the wildflowers.
They never primp or shop,
but hae you ever seen
color and design quite like
it If God gives such atten-
tion to the appearance of
. ildflowers -most of,
which are never even seen
- don't you think he'll
attend to .,ou, take pride in
you, do his best for you?"
iMatthew ': 28b,and30,
The Message .
Let's be like the wild-
flow ers. content to bloom
v here God plants us -
even if onI seenby him.
Selah.

Members of women of wonder (WOW) enjoy lunch at the Hammock Inn Restaurant recently before touring the park and C'i ilian Conservation Corps museum.


Widowed women reach out and stay positive


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING
When Marie Ringle, 80, lost
her husband a year ago after
58 years of marriage, s-he,
and three others" started
WOW aL Tanglewood.
WOW stands for women of wonder,
but some say it also stands for women
of wisdom or widows of the world. It is
solely for those who live at Tanglewood
Manufactured Home Community and
RV Resort. WOW is for any lady who
has been widowed for any length of
time and at any age.
"We lean on each other. We're a sup-
port group for each other. It's someone *
to talk to," Ringle said.
She insiis ,the\ are doing their own
thing, and not looking for a man.
Besides, there's already a singles group
for that at Tanglew ood. WOW is strictly
for widowed ladies who want another
widowed lady to talk to or share some
time.
All Ringle's widowed friends' share
common problems and solutions. They
might need help v. ith taxes, or a house
repair for the house, They need to know
who to get, and who's recommended.
Most of them still have their own

There's a.gleam in their eyes now.
Petty issues are put aside so that God's
love can filler through to dissolve poten-
tial h.izard_ before they develop. But, it
v'..sn't long ago when that gleam had
been a glare, and his competitive spirit
and her conservative heart, were at odds.
Michael had been disabled in a work
related accident and a couple of years
later, his wife left and took his two'
daughters with her. In one swoop, this
strong, sturdy guy' was reduced to kin-
dling.
Interestingly, before Michael met
Sally, they had both been on their knees
in their churches crying out to God.
Sally prai ing that God would bring
her a true love to share the remainder of
her life. Michael praying for God to

homes, and their husbands were the
ones who took care of them. Although
most of their families live up north, if
they were needed, they'd be here. But
Ringle feels fortunate to have good


neighbors at Tanglewood ho look
after each other.
"We're like the pioneers. When need-
ed, we gather the wagons round,
because we're all in the same boat. We


keep a list of everyone, and whenever
necessary, we make a call and instantly
ha\e another person in the same situa-
tion that we can talk to. We're like ele-
, ators: Some days we're up, and some
dais we're down. And that's when
those calls are so important. It's impor-
tant to always think positive." Ringle
said.
The women recently took a trip to
the Avon Park Museum and on March
16 they did a tour and lunch at
Highlands Hammock State Park in
Sebring. In April. WOW will be visitingg
the airport. The ladies all meet at the
Tanglewood clubhouse and car pool,
although some like to drive on their
own, especially'if they want a side trip
of shopping.:
Most of the widowed ladies live here
year round, and no longer want to
maintain two homes. WOW will con-
tinue to meet once a month on the third
Thursday. A luncheon is always includ-
ed because they all feel it is hard to
cook for just one person, and usually
it s cheaper to just eat out. Besides, it's
no fun to eat by oneself. Tanglew ood
sends ai reminder in the newsletter and
has a sign-up sheet for their interested
residents.

hurt of losing his job,
his family and not
knowing what to do.
It was then he metf ,
Sally, who had gone '
through the same pain '
five years previously.
Instead of turning this
guy with so much bag-
gage away, she
reached out in friend-
ship. graphic by: FRED KC
Michael said that
besides this friendship and his attraction
to Sally, "there was God, a common
thread which was stronger, than
Spiderman's web."
Once married, they weathered the ups
and downs especially those long
years of Sally's arthritic problems. Then
a heart attack compounded her health
situation. Insurance only covered so
many bills and along with his disability
issues, their "his and hers" medical
struggles made Michael feel trapped.
So, he reneged on a promise he'd
made to Sally when they married that
he would never mortgage their home.
Without regard to her feelings ignor-
ing her pleas he went ahead and refi-
nanced their home.
She hated him for it and for breaking
his promise. She felt her security slip-
ping away pulling her under like sand
tugging her feet as a wave left the shore.
Into this void, Satan further tempted

When he thinks back to the day he

his head. He hadheard her say to a co-
worker that she wished a tall, dark.
handsome prince wouldcome to her on
a white horse. He then produced a pic-
ture of himself on a white horse. He can
hardly believe his arrogance and where
it eventually led.
No wonder everyone said that it was
over and the marriage was irreparable.
But that was before Michael had given
God all of the broken pieces. What man
could not do, God, through his Holy
Spirit, is doing.
Everyone had given up, but God.

Blending talent and ability


Gatlins perform at SFCC


'Seven Brides
for Seven
Borthers' does
not disappoint
Highlands Little Theater
Director Joe Willis' latest pro-
duction at Sebring's Lakeside
Playhouse, "Seven Brides for
Seven Brothers," hit pay dirt on
March 24.
The first audience showed its
pleasure and enjoyment by
salvos of bravos as the colorful
show danced its way into their
hearts.
This wonderful reception left
no doubt that Willis' cast and
production staff have qualified
to be come serious contenders
for the end-of-the-season award
ceremonies.
The show sparkles with bril-
liant actors, fine voices, vibrant
.costumes, attractive scenery,
and extraordinary dancing;
every aspect of this extravagan-
* za, including the music and
staging, merit praise and admi-
ration.
This cheerful show will be
remembered with pleasure. The
large cast gives many of the
actors a chance to shine and
they are led by Sarah Pelham as
Milly, a young bride, and Adam
Pontipee, her groom, played by
Phil Attinger, an 1850s 'Oregon
farmer. These exceptional leads
precipitate the ensuing ava-
lanche of activity. .
The Pontipee brothers are an

Onestroke painter visits Sebring


Library books set the world on fire


Courtesy photo
On March 20, Donna Dewberry and her staff visited the
Knights of Columbus at 900 US Highway 27 in Sebring to give
a free class to those that attended the luncheon for the benefit
of the Maria Dewberry Children's Foundation. There were 61
onestrokers present, who painted a new contemporary style of
roses and a daisy on stemware glasses. Judy Nicewicz, of- ,
Nana's S'Prizes, her students, and the Knights of Columbus
worked to make this event possible.


Have you ever had to call the
fire department? My first expe-
rience was with a furnace mal-
function during, naturally, a
sub-zero day in Michigan's
Upper Peninsula. That was a
heart-pounding experience, but
what a relief to have those fire-
fighters come so quickly and
know exactly what to do. We've
seen the quick work of
Highlands County firefighters
twice on our road once due
to a bolt of lightning setting a
pine ablaze, and once very

grass fire.
The word "fire" elicits many
strong reactions, so authors are
partial to it when they want to
rouse some emotional response
to their stories., Well-loved
author Andrew Greeley wrote
"Angel Fire; romantic mys-
tery;" writer Phyllis Whitney
Wrote "Blue Fire;" best-selling
author Nora Roberts penned
"Born in Fire;" Don Winslow
authored "California Fire and
Life;" and Joseph Haywood
called his tale "Blue Wolf in
Green Fire! a Woods Cop mys-
tery." The action- packed Mack
Bolan series by Don Pendleton
includes "Blood and Fire,"


while Western writer
Al Lacy's series, -
Journeys of the
Stranger, book num-
ber 5, is called "Circle
of Fire."
Biographies on our
shelves also include

"Hellfighters," based on Red's
feats in the Sahara. In 1991,
Red and his crews put out liter-

Over 2,000 land and offshore
oil and gas fires were extin-
guished and capped by his com-
pany from 1959 to 1993..

Butler conducts classes

Watching Butler demonstrate her technique in acrylic painting are
art students Barbara Cummings, Edie McGovern, Barbara Varney
and Karen Curry..


LAKE PLACID Dorene
Butler, second generation
Highwaymen painter and fime
art instructor, conducted her
second Lake Placid workshop
at the invitation of the
Caladium Arts and Crafts
Cooperative this weekend.
As part of her instruction,
Butler will critique each paint-
ing, giving encouragement and
suggestions on final touches.
Although the entire class
paints the same subject it is
always amazing to see the final
interpretation on each artist's
canvas.
Butler's classes are coordi-
nated by local t and Butler
method of painting teacher,
Mara Trumbo. The next two-
week session runs from 2-5
p.m. Sunday April 2 and 9. at a
cost of $66. Bookings can be
made by phone at 699-5940,
but pre-payment is essential to
secure a place.

An inspiraffnal thought

Romans 1: I 7, "For therein
is the righteousness of God
revealed from faith to faith:
i as it is written, the just shall
l ive by faith. Hebrew's 11:1,
"Now fi7ith is the substance
J" of things hoped for, the
4Cevidence of things not
seen." Another scripture tells


ius without
God. Read


faith it is impossible to please
Hebrews 11:"1. These are verve


encoltragitng scriptures to those who ha've
not yet seen their request to God manifested.
Faitlh believes without seeing, and vet
knowing it's going to be revealed. Faith does
not tIake things alhvys.easy,, but it does
make things all-vav5,s sble. Faith allows
you to wait and eCn /(Thtil the answer
comes. Let's take a I "' tAt Aatthew 21:22.
"And all things, wi. h 1er ye shall ask in

All the gu\s mention how

of a group where all the per-
formers are "top-notch." Those
of us who hate heard them per-
form can attest to this as a true
statement. It's ob% ious that
these guys habe a lot of fun
playing music together.
"We just love to pla\. and
especially to play jazz." Da\is
Collister. the bass player. said.
"The jazz music that
Emanon plays is not just fun,
but also listener friendly." adds
band member Doug Andrews.
"The core of the music is draw n
from both the Great American
Song Book, music b\ Porter,
Ellington. Mercer. as well as
the great jazz standards bv
Parker. Monk. Coltrane,
Mingus and mank others ot our
great musical heritage. These
are just not heard often enough
these daN s." Da% id Nai lor said.
"We play this music because
we lo\e it. but at the same time
we are also trying to keep the
melodies alive by performing
this body of literature."

DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
(File No. EI-0238833-003) to U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, to improve the features of the
Istokpoga Canal. The project will include the
replacement of the, existing G-85 structure,
with a new water control structure S-67,
dredging of the canal and spoil mound remov-
al from U.S. 98 to the oxbows, construction of
a tie-back'levee at the new structure,, con-1
struction of a public poat ramp and parkiijg
facility, and construction of aii access road
from County .Road 621 to the end of the tie-
back levee. The proposed project is part of
phased activities for the Kissimmee River Re-
storation (KRR) that will allow restoration of
the historic Kissimmee River channel.
The activities are located along the Istok-,
poga canal, and at the Istokpoga canal cross-
'ing' at U.S. 98. The'project is located in High-
l c.. i ,urr,, i lornj i ,i
Tri a ppii. .aiion i. available for public'in-
spection during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ex-
cept legal holidays, at the Florida Department'
of Environmental Protection,; Southeast Dis-
trict Office, 400 North Congress Avenue, Suite
200, West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Department will issue the permit with
attached-conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under
sections 120.569 and '120.57 of the .Florida
Statutes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's proposed per-
mitting decision may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes..
The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard,. Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the par-
ties listed below must be filed within 21 days
of receipt of this Written notice. Petitions filed
by any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes must be filed within 21 days
of publication of the notice or receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a
petition within 21 days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publication.
nThe petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition or request for media-
tion within the appropriate .time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-.


quest an administrative determination (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. Any subsequent Intervention
(in a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compli-
ance with rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner's rep-
resentative, if any, Which shall be the address
for service purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of how the pe-
titioner's substantial interests will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when each pe-
titioner received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of


1050 Legals
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules or statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief.
A petition that does not dispute the materi-
al facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the. re-
quirements set forth above.
.Mediation is not available in this proceeding. ,
Any party to this order has the right to
seek judicial review of it under section 120.68
of the Florida Statutes, by filing a notice of ap-
peal under rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of
Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the De-
partment in the Office of General Counsel,
Mail Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by
filing-a copy of the notice of appeal accompa-
nied by the applicable filing fees with the ap-
propriate district court of appeal. The notice
of appeal must be filed within thirty days after
this order is filed with the clerk of the Depart-
ment.

vV Fry Lesson
5 Years Ago
April 1, 2001: Donnie
Hammonds pitched a no-
hitter for Lake Placid as the
Green Dragons defeated
DeSoto 3-0. The right-
handed fireballer had
racked up 89 strikeouts in
45 innings up to that point
in the season and
remained the bright spot in
the Dragon's-rotation. Lake
Placid was a dismal 5-10
overall, but evened up their
district record to 3-3.
20 Years Ago
April 2, 1986: Sebring
continued to suffer through
a tough spring break, los-
ing 9-8 in nine innings to
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney.
The Streaks headed into
the break with a 13-6
record and fell to 13-9 with
three straight losses.
Coach Brent Ommert
blamed the slide on a gen-,
eral lack of enthusiasm and
concentration, calling it
"the worst I've seen
Sebring play in four years
of coaching."

Carlos Sosa delivers a pitch for Lake Placid on Friday.


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID Like an epic film with a
tragic ending, the 'Lake Placid Green Dragons
kept the audience on the edge of their seats
through six dramatic innings Friday night only to
have the plot collapse in the seventh.
It was a game where both coaches made Port S
their presence known with countless lineup ,,
moves, umpire confrontations and pitching
changes, but the Dragons fell with a thud to
the Port St. Lucie Jaguars, 13-5. Lake
As if foreshadowing the conclusion of
the game, the Jaguars 'got off to a roaring
start by bringing nine batters up and plating
three in the first. Shortstop Mike McGee, who
would reach base every at bat Friday night, hit a
line shot up the middle for the game's first base
runner. Consecutive singles from Andrew-Durden
and Matt King .loaded the bases for Robert
Barton. 'Barton hit a weak grounder to Lake

Bad hop brings Devils good fortune

Sixth-inning bounce pivotal in comeback victory


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Sometimes,
the mythical baseball gods just
seem to smile on a team. Or
maybe sometimes there's just a
very well-placed rock in the
infield.
Either way, the Avon Park
Red Devils, got a break Friday
night at Head Field, helping
them rally for a key 3-2 win
over District 10-4A rival
Hardee.
With two outs in the sixth
inning and the Wildcats ahead
2-1, a routine grounder off
Luke Sedlock's bat took a freak
hop into right field, transform-
ing from an inning-ending
ground out into a game-tying
single in the process.
One inning later, Devaris


Strange hit a one-out single and'
scored when Johnny Sedlock
hit Will Krause's 1-1 fastball
into left-center field for a dou-
ble to win the game and com-
plete the unlikely comeback.
"It's been one of those years

where we just
can't seem to buy
a break and if that
was one of them,
we'll take it,"
Avon Park coach
Mort Jackson
said.


"Hardee is a team that does-
n't make mistakes, they play
error-free baseball and put the
ball in play. They're tough.
Steve's doing a great job over
there."
Sedlock's clutch hit made
him the winning pitclier. Itlingi


him to 5-1 on the season and the
Devils to 10-6 overall and 6-2
in the district, tying them with
Hardee and Sebring for first
place.
It didn't look like the Devils
were going to be celebrating
early, when four eirors in the
first two innings let Weston
Palmer and Jarrett Benevides
score unearned runs to build a
2-0 lead for the Wildcats (15-4,
6-2).
"I just told myself I didn't
want to give this loss up tonight
and I was going to do whatever
I .could after those first two
innings when they gave up the
errors behind me to stay in the
game and sure enough, it paid
off," said Johnny Sedlock, who

Season'


greetings

Merry opening day, everyone!

Tonight's matchup between,
Cleveland and Chicago admittedly
means nothing to me, but I will
watch with enthusiasm regardless.
Mostly I will watch to keep the
exuberance from boiling over while
I wait for the Cardinals to kick off
their season tomorrow. It will be ,a
soothing fix to ease the [r.mnihon
between the boring yet tantalizing
spnnri training games and the.
games that count.
I'm a sucker for tradition and
ceremony, so I'll be eating only
ballpark food on.Monday. The
menu at my

consist of hot
dogs, nachos
and icy Coca-
Cola. I'll be

I sat in the right field seats at Coors

This year, the Birds open on the

Miami-Dade's Eric Santiago beats the throw to SFCC second baseman Brad Gooch for a stolen base Friday night at Panther Field.



Another bad night for SFCC

Have lost 10 of 12 conference games after 5-0 start


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SAVON PARK Rick Hitt says base-
ball is often all about momentum. The
problem is that his South Florida
Community College Panthers don't have
any, unless you count going backwards.
Miami-Dade While hitting has been
the main culprit in SFCC's
slide over the past three
:-C weeks, Friday night's
FCC_' game against Miami-Dade
was a system-wide melt-
down as the Panthers
made four errors, got out-
hit 12-6 and surrendered eight unan-
swered runs over the final four innings
in a 10-1 defeat.
It was the Panthers' 10th loss in the
.ast 12 games after a 5-0 start in the
Southern Conference and dropped them


'We haven't been able to dictate the.
momentum in a game in quite some time
and that's really been a difference.'

RICK HITT, SFCC coach


,to 22- 17 overall and out of a third-place
tie with Miami-Dade in the conference
standings.
The Panthers are hitting just .215 in
conference play and scoring a meager
2.9 runs per game, not 'nearly good
enough to compete in one of the state's
tougher divisions.
With the lack of offense, SFCC needs
good pitching to have a chance, some-
thing the,'c" had until the past two


games, both of which ended up with
opponents putting 10 runs on the board.
"You combine giving up 10 (runs)
with not being able to produce any and
then make a couple of mistakes on
defense, you usually don't have a
(win)," Hitt said.
"We never generated any kind of
momentum in this game. We haven't

throw to the plate and then opted for the throw to
first that got Barton but brought in McGee.
Lake Placid starting pitcher Brent Bierman
opened the game with a strikeout, then struggled
with his control after the middle of the order,
walking three batters before a grounder to third
ended the first.
t. Lucie On the offensive side, Lake Placid's
,. player of the game was fleet-footed center
fielder Josh McKee, who also reached base
every at bat. Stealing four bases, McKee
Placid was also caught stealing at second base in
the second inning.
:.' The Dragons could only manage one run
in the first on an Alex Delgado RBI single
that scored Omar DeJesus from third. Playing
.some small-ball and capitalizing on a wild pitch
in the fourth, Lake Placid slowly crawled back,
making it 5-2 after a Reasbeck infield hit for an
RBI.

Record largemouth caught in


California? Maybe, maybe not


It has been .nearly 74 years
since George Perry caught a
22-pound. 4-ounce largemouth
bass that still holds the world
'record. It was weighed on a
scale in a country store and no
picture% were taken. causing.
some skepticism about the
catch and it is doubtful that
many people saw George's
bass before he and his family
enjoyed it for dinner.
Still, it remains the leader'in
the International Game Fish
Association record book.
An angler in California
claims to have caught a large-
,mouth bass that surpasses the
weight of George Perry's
record-holding bass. Mac
Weakley took the huge fish
from Lake Dixon in.
;Escondido, Calif., on the
'morning of March 20. His
;catch' weighed 25-pounds, 1-
o6unce on a friend's hand-held
'scale.
: Lake Dixon is a: small water
:supply reservoir with a reputa-
*tion for producing big bass and
;there are several reasons,
according to rangers who work
there. An exploding population
of bluegill along with the
monthly helpings of snack-size
rainbow trout the city of
Escondido dumps into the lake
from November through May
gives the bass a super diet. The
ducklings and cootlings that
hatch there each spring also
provide a high-protein boost
for the bass.
S.Lake Dixon allows fishing
by permit only in rented boats
with trolling motors. Weakley
and two friends, Mike Winn
and Jed Dickerson, arrived
early in the morning, got their
permits and rented a boat.


OUTDOORS
Lloyd Jones

They were greeted by less than
ideal weather. Wind and rain
made the water choppy.
Though visibility was -
decreased, the trio found the
bedding area of the huge bass.
The three took turns casting
to the nest. Dickerson was
throwing a Bob Sanger rat-
tlesnake jig and got three hits,
but he failed to set the hook
each time. He passed the rod to
Weakley, who repeatedly
missed setting the hook.
After nearly an hour on the
water, Weakley got a bump and
hooked the fish, which dove
for the deeper water in the
middle of the lake. Weakley
managed to reel the bass to the
boat and Winn tried to net the
fish but missed it and once,
again it dove for the depths.
Weakley again worked the
bass back to the boat and Winn
finally netted it.
After getting the fish into
the boat, they found the jig was
embedded in its back, three
inches behind the dorsal fin. It
was foul-hooked.
"Oh man, it's foul-hooked,"
yelled Steve and Daniel
Barnett, two teenage brothers
who were standing on the


dock, only a few feet away,
watching the entire episode.
According to Steve Barnett,
the trio in the boat motored out
into the lake to talk. When they
returned to the dock with the
fish on a stringer, Weakley and
Dickerson weighed the fish on
a brand-new handheld Berkley
digital scale. The scale read
25-pounds, 1-ounce. Weakley
and Winn held the fish for pho-
tos. They also shot some video
of their catch.
Either Weakley or Dickerson
said, "Look there's a mark on
its back and we don't know
what's up with that." One of
the Barnett boys replied, "We
saw you .foul hook it, though."
Weakley told his friends to
release the fish and they did.
Ray Scott, founder of BASS,
says there are certain things
you have to do to certify the
record and they knew what
those steps were and they did-
n't do it.
"If you catch the record
bass, you have to have the
corpse. Without it, we'll never
know for sure.. Now, God only
knows," Scott said.
Weakley has decided not to
submit the huge bass as a
world record to the IGFA, ,
despite the organization's
director indicating that
Weakley's failure to take
length and girth measurements
would not necessarily disquali-
fy his. catch if photos and video
substantiated the bass' size.

felt like Steve Martin in The
Jerk when he gets the new
phone book.
There are things I'm not
looking forward to as well. I'm
sure every baseball'fan is
preparing to be inundated with
steroid talk. The pace of the
sport is such that when there's
national news to discuss, your
