CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Sara Franza's five year old son Jo-Jo helps her open a welcome home gift at a surprise part held for her at Avon
Elementary School Saturday afternoon. Franza had been so eager to leave the rehabilitation center w here she'd been
staying they left early. Her husband Joe had to lake the family van through a car wash so they didn't arrive at the party
early.



Welcome home Franza


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Avon Elementary School's library
bustled with activity Saturday afternoon, as family,
friends and co-workers conspired to welcome Sara Franza
home with a surprise party.
But the surprise was on Franza's-friends because her
recent improvement, from a long and terrifying illness,
has been so rapid that her release from the rehabilitation
center., caught everyone off guard.
Her condition is thought to be a case of acute dissemi-,
nated encephamialitis.'
Arrangements for the party were so last minute that
even as she got out of the car and approached the school's
librarN door, there was a whispered discussion of what to
call out as she entered surprise or welcome home.
Franza teaches at Avon. Elementary School, but has
been absent since the end of January.
She unexpectedly fell into a comma while at home the
evening of Jan. 22. When she was still unresponsive the
next morning, she was rushed to Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center where she remained in a
comma for several days.
Her family was told she had contracted some sort of:
virus, which had created lesions on her brain stem.
When she finally began to emerge into consciousness,


she could only communicate with sign language, her left
side. didn't work at all, and her right arm and leg had only
limited mobility.
. More and more tests were done to try to diagnose the
problem. At one terrifying point everyone visiting her had
to wear protective masks and gowns, because while the
doctors were fairly sure a virus \ as in\ olved, no one had
anivjdea of what kind.
Btut Franza continued to make slow and steady
progress, even though the animated, determined and
vibrant young woman wasn't yet quite there and whole.
She was ;moved to Health South Rehabilitation,
Sarasota.
i Then there was a scary set back. After 10 days in rehab,
she developed blood clots in her lungs. She was moved to
Sarasota Memorial Hospital were she was successfully
treated, and then returned to the rehabilitation center.
Finally, in the last week of March, about two months
after falling,ill, Franza suddenly began to improve rapid-
ly, and the full force of the much loved woman began to
shine through.
"It was like she was shot out of a canon," her father
Wally Randall said. His voice carried a mixture of awe,
relief and gratitude. "You could see her get better by the

Professional


recruiter to


help find


teachers for


Highlands

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Sean Rego has lived in
Highlands County.for the last six years.
His wife teaches at Sebring High School,'
they have a child, and they are well involved ini
the local community.
However, as a recruiter for the Ohio-based;
Woodmansee Group, finding executives for
Fortune 500 companies, Rego spent a lot of
time traveling or a lot of weekends in the office
finalizing reports.
Being an executive recruiter "hired to find
the hard to find" took too much time away
from his wife and son. He'd much rather spend
the time at home.
He'll be doing that as the
new teacher recruiter for
Highlands County, still find-
ing the hard to find. 'He
starts Monday.
In this job, the Highlands
County School District
wanted somebody who
could really sell Highlands
County to college students
and professionals making a REGO
switch to teaching. Rego
said he loves the county a great place to raise
a family.
"I couldn't sell something I don't believe in,"
he said.
He'll have to work hard, he said. because
he's competing with other counties that can
offer more in salary. What Highlands County
has, he said, is a lower cost of living, and a nicer
place to live.
He's already started reach ng out to people he
knows who could or \ou Ild be interested in
teaching as a career, as well as to all the old
recruiter contacts he has at colleges and univer-
sities, such as Paul Fox at South Florida
Community College; Roger Hood at the
Heartland Career Connection; and even his- fel-
low members of the Florida Career Placement
Association.
Rego graduated from Warner Southern
College in Lake Wales, and became their

Couric disappoints Center for Great Apes


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
WAUCHULA -, After
Sammy the orangutan spat at a
TV news producer Friday
morning at the Center for Great
Apes. correspondent Kerry,
Saunders changed.
"Do you want me to change
my shoes?" Saunders asked, as
he waited to go live with NBC's
"Today" show. "Because I can."
Sammy wasn't upset with
producer Julienne Gage, just
her shoes.
"We don't know what hap-
pened to him before we got
him," Patti Ragan, director and
founder of the center, said. "But
he just doesn't like open toes."
Saunders, who also was
wearing sandals for his .live
"Today" show feed from the
secluded Wauchula chimpanzee
and orangutan sanctuary,
slipped into a pair of casual
shoes.
But, after more than five
hours of filming at the sanctu-
ary and interviewing Ragan,
Saunders changed more than
his footwear.
"I pictured them smoking
cigars and wearing straw hats,
rocking back and, forth,"
Saunders said before going live,
explaining his original
approach to this story. "But we


got here and discovered some-
thing totally different."
Reporters sometimes have
their story written before their
first interview, as did Saunders
when an editor tasked him to
look into the apparent rise in
production costs for movies and
commercials due to the burden
of retiring chimpanzees.
"There's a very serious
aspect to this," Saunders said,
explaining that trainers cite sup-
ply and demand, not retirement
burdens, for the growing cost of
chimpanzees in movies.
His story, which aired at 7:49
a.m. Friday, included live shots
with Geri (an orangutan who
remained in her enclosure with
Saunders and the film crew out-
side) and previously taped
interviews "B Rolls" with
Ragan and representatives from
a Dallas based production com-
pany and a Hollywood, Calif.,
trainer of chimpanzees.
In the studio, "Today's" co-
host Katie Couric was joined by
chimpanzee handler Judie
Harrison and Louie, one of her
two chimpanzees.
"I could have cried," Ragan
said Friday afternoon, after
watching a recording of the seg-
ment which featured Couric
holding lollipop-eating Louie.


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Jim Craven films NBC reporter Kerry Saunders feeding bananas to an orangutan Friday morning dur-
ing a live broadcast from Wauchula's Center for Great Apes, for millions of viewers. The center's direc-
tor Patti Ragan assists.


"It was a very slanted report. ...
None of the important issues
were addressed."
Those "important issues," as
described by Ragan and her
staff of volunteers .and interns,
are that chimps and orangutans
are removed from their mothers


at birth to begin their entertain-
ment training and, once an ape
grows unmanageable or proves
unprofitable, they're discarded
to a sanctuary if lucky or to a
roadside zoo if not so lucky.
. "TheN're very adorable and
they sell products but people


need to question what happens
to them," Ragan said, explain-
ing that the entertainment
industry doesn't fund the
$500,000 cost of an ape's 30-40
years of retirement. "The way

Making a splash at Avon Elementary


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK Usually
when faced with a camera, 6-
and 7-year-olds get crazy pos-
ing.
But not Lori liames' first-
grade class.
Handed books at random for
a photo op, her students
promptly started to read. Even
after the flash was popping, and
the camera could. be heard
clicking, the students stayed
immersed in their books.
No wonder this group of
young people has amazed
everyone with their output.
Collectively they have read
more books, earning more
points, than any other class in
Avon Elementary School's his-
tory.,
Each book read earns a stu-
dent half a point but they
have to pass a test (which is
administered by computer) to
prove they've done the reading.
Every child in liames' class
has at least 25 points. That
means every child has read at
least 50 books.
1ut some of the students
have read way more than that.
The class leader is Norman
Perkins, who has earned 139
points. That means he has read
278 books.
Right behind him is Laurynn


I.'I.,q,~ L.~


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Lori liames' first-grade class amazes everybody. They have set a record at Avon Elementary School for
reading the most books in a year ever. Leading the. way are Laurynn Blalock and Norman Perkins (hold-
ing their reading trophies). Laurynn has earned 106 points, Norman 139. Children receive a half point
for every book read you do the math.


Blalock, who has 106 points for
reading 212 books.
Cynthia Negron with 96
points, and Katelyn -Miller with
80 aren't too far behind.
Already the class has earned


a popcorn party and a pizza
party. Some aim for even high-
er rewards.
"I have students determined
to earn 200 points," liames said,
"because that earns them a ride


to lunch in a limo, with (Pamela
Burnham) the school's princi-
pal."
liames credits several factors
for the result. Fantastic parents
and a measure of sibling rivalry,


has helped. Some of the stu-
dents have older brothers and
sisters, and are challenging
them at home.
Then there is the ripple
effect, as strong readers set an
example.
Recently the class didn't
want to go to recess, they were
so involved with their reading.
"What a wonderful prob-
lem," liames said.
It's a teacher's dream," she
added. "I've been teaching for
16 years and I've never had a
group of kids who could set
their goals and meet ihem like
this one does."
As for what the children like
to read, The a.re v. ild tor non-
fiction books about animals in
general. Sharks, lion. ,and ele-
phants are popular.
They also love chapter
books. Those are .books. jth
more involved content broken :;'
down into chapters.
Their favorite chapter book
series is The Magic Tree House.
in which Jack and Anna go on
adventures to different times in
history.
Almost as popular ,is 'the'.
June B. Jones series. Junie B.;'
Jones gets herself into different
trouble each book, and .she
learns a different lesson getting
out of trouble each lime.

Teddy bears, quilts make way to


Good Shepherd Hospice office


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Two ladies
from Michigan came into the
office of Good Shepherd
Hospice last week and deliv-
ered 47 teddy bears with quilts.
Eight ladies from Michigan,
who come to Sebring in the
winter, made them. They stated
that they make these same bears
in Michigan and call them "bur-
den bears." These teddy bears
will be given out to children,
teens (and adults) who attend
support groups and individual
counseling from the Bethany
Center of Good Shepherd
Hospice.


The Bethany Center of Good
Shepherd Hospice, founded in
1991, is named in honor of
Bethany Anne Traviesa. When
Traviesa was dying of cancer
she was concerned that her chil-
dren have a safe place to share
their feelings and receive sup-
port.
Today, The Bethany Center,
located on Lake Morton,
Lakeland, is a community serv-
ice of Good Shepherd Hospice
and provides a supportive envi-
ronment for any child whose
loved one or friend is desperate-
ly ill, or has died. The cause can


be a long illness or unexpected
as from violence or an accident.
It's a place where 'professional
staff answer questions, counsel
and help children and teens
learn to cope. The professional
staff also offers grief support
groups at the child's school or
other locations in the communi-
ty.

The county already has full-

"If you've had trouble filling

going to have trouble filling a

Bob Bullard said.
Instead, they said they want-
ed to see Carino look at where
the greatest need is, continue
his aggressive stance, and fill at
least 10 vacant slots with fully-
qualified people.
Carino was asking to bring in
14 temporary people. Develop-

ing inspector, a planner, two
-development specialists, and
two administrative secretaries.
Engineering would get two

He'd like to see that reduced.

How a grandmother refused to let a little girl's spirit die


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Judy Barnhart
is a natural born writer.
She is also a retired elemen-
tary school teacher and guid-
ance counselor. So she writes
books that have messages, and
are useful in schools. Many of
her works have been published
over the years.
Some time ago she jotted.
down a story that she then
tucked away.
It was a story about two boys
who unknowingly share a eat.
The cat is adopted by one
boy from the humane society.
One day, however, when the
kitten is left alone outdoors, it
walks to another boy's house
nearby where that boy thinks he
has saved a stray kitten.
Being a cat, the kitten soon
learns how to make the best of
this situation.
What happens and how the
boys react, is of course the meat


of the story.
But that story, Barnhart was
quick to point out, is not what's
important about the book, "The
Wonderful World of Charlie
Sparkle," which has just been
published.
That's because this book is a
labor of' love, dedicated to
Barnhart's granddaughter,'
Connie Celeste Sherman.
"The real story of this book,"
Barnhart said, "is about a little
girl who loved life and brought
joy to everyone who knew her
- who loved to sing and dance
and drew pictures a little girl
who lost her life when she was
not quite 8 years old, and the
story of her grandmother, who
refused to let the dreams and
spirit of-that little girl die with
her."
The day after Easter in 2003,
Connie and her parents were on
their way to go hiking in the
mountains of Massachusetts,


not far from where they lived.
Their car was hit from behind
by a semi-truck going more
than 60 miles pier hour. Both
parents were seriously hurt.
Connie did riot survive her
injuries.. She was 7 almost 8
- and in the second grade.
"Connie and I had just started


work on a book that she was to
illustrate for me. After we lost
her, I knew I wouldn't feel sat-
isfied until I could pse some of
her drawings in a book in some
way.
"I had written a story about a
black cat named Charlie
Midnight. When I was looking
for a story for which I could
adapt some of my granddaugh-
ter, Connie's, pictures, I decid-
ed to make the cat a silvery-

"I had many pictures of cats
which Connie had drawn for

cat Ralph, a brownish tabby.

looking like a silver gray cat."

Final vision workshop wraps up series


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
The last of three countywide
2020 visioning sessions in three
months was held Tuesday in
Avon Park.
The workshops, facilitated
by Christian Pedersen and Dr.
Tom Taylor of the Florida
Conflict Resolution Consor-
tium, gave Highlands County
residents an opportunity to
voice their desires for the future
of the county. The workshops
were sponsored by Florida's
Heartland Rural Economic
Development Initiative through
funding from the Department of
Community Affairs.
The first meeting, in Lake
Placid, provided an opportuni-
ty for people to voice their
opinions about what they treas-
ure and want to keep in the
county and what they would
like to see changed.
The second, in Sebring, led
residents to prioritize these
desires. A summary of these pri-
orities was drawn up and pre-
sented at the final session.
County Commission Chair-
man Bob Bullard encouraged


participation from the audience.
"Your vision will determine the
path we take over the next 20-
plus years," he said.
Tuesday's meeting allowed
people to read the draft, "What
Residents Value in Highlands
County," and give feedback,
leading to minor changes in the
document.
Taylor explained that the
goal of this last workshop was
to "wrap up this phase of the
process, looking at priorities
and steps to implement them."
Several pages of information
were given to all in attendance,
providing information con-
tributed by area experts regard-
ing the priorities in each of sev-
eral categories. Facilitators
instructed residents to read and
comment on each.
Categories included housing;
transportation; development of
the Sebring Airport; public
trails, parks and lakes; health'
care access; business develop-
ment and support issues; agri-
culiural preservation; public
safe .through enhancing the
sheriff's department and emer-
gency management); and inter-


local government cooperation.
Feedback was plentiful and
largely positive. One man was
so impressed by the visioning
workshop that he said it should
serve as an example to other
counties. However, it was
pointed out that some the expert
information was not as inclu-
sive or accurate as it needed to
be.
In the category of health care,
for example, under the heading
of "Current Activities," several
medical facilities serving the
,area were not mentioned.
A participant brought atten-
tion to the fact that Highlands
County Health Department
should be included, another
brought up Highlands Regional
Medical Center, another Central
Florida Health Care.
Sheriff Susan Benton
explained after several such
scenarios transpired in different
categories, "The information
included is all we were given by
the experts who were consult-
ed."
These details are important to
the visioning process and will
be ironed out in the end. "I feel


A merging of doctors


that overall the,workshops have
gone well," Lynn Topel, execu-
tive director of the initiative,
said. Having this input was pre-
cisely the reason the partici-
pants were given the opportuni-
ty to review the information and
offer responses all of which
were documented. "This is a
process," she said, "and for a
visiofiing it is a very small one
- just getting a flavor of what
things we can give to our lead-
ers to let them know what-we
want. They have massive deci-
sions to make and I applaud
them for what they do but it
isn't easy. If they know what
their constituents want, they
will be better able to serve
them."
Topel also said that partici-
pants need to understand that no
one has made any decisions yet.
"The consultants will take what
came out of last night and go
over everything all the com-
ments, etc., consider and weigh
it all, write up a rough draft
report, refine that, and then
present it to the steering com-
mittee to get their feedback."
It will only be after the steer-
ing committee (composed of 19
people, all representing differ-
ent interest groups and bringing
to the table a host of various
expertise) agrees that what is
included in the report truly
reflects what came out of the
visioning meetings that initia-
tives can begin.
Pedersen said that in the end,
"The final Vision Report pre-
pared, including all the sub-
stance of this process, will go to
cities, the sheriff's department,
the school board, Department of
Transportation, lots of
places."
The report will serve many
purposes, including advertise-
ment for the county, a tool for
acquiring grants to fund initia-
tives, a prioritized guide for
changes, and a historical docu-
ment. Topel said the report will
include pictures and that,
regardless of% other "outcomes,
'will'become a-historical record
of what Highlands County was


like and what residents wanted
for their future at this point in
time.
Participants filled out evalua-
tion forms during and after the
meeting. One form to rate the
acceptability of how each of the
vision priorities were


addressed, and the other to eval-
uate different aspects of the
meetings. The results, at time of
press, were not yet available.

Vision 2020 workshops can be

I II I [ . ..II -


By:John Atkinson


Ip 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 244.1 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-talpon co-*orkers'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.

Young teens told to keep firm boundaries


By SUSAN FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Girls from
Hill Gustat Middle School were
rife with questions as' panelists
from the Teen Pregnancy
Alliance attempted to clear up
some of the myths about teen
pregnancy.
Highlands County Depart-
ment of Health coordinator for
the alliance, Susan Buelow,
hosted the program held
Thursday morning at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center.
The conference room at the
hospital was packed with 14-
year-old students who were
anxious to ask questions about a
subject that is often taboo with
adults or full of fallacies when
answered by a child of the same
age.
Women's health practitioner
Joanne DiLella fielded many of
the questions that dealt with the
physical side of teen pregnancy.
Many of the questions could
be difficult to answer if faced
with the moral issues surround-
ing abortion. Therefore, the
panelists kept their answers to
either personal experience or
answered only in factual, physi-
cal terms.
"If your baby dies in two
weeks (of conception) does it
matter? Because the baby is not
yet formed," asked an eighth-
grade student.
DiLella answered the young
lady's question with a strictly
physical reply. She did not elab-
orate the answer or attempt to
convey any other message than
was asked.
"A baby has a spinal cord at
nine days," DiLella said.
"Can you get pregnant two
weeks before your period?"
asked another student.
Again, DiLella answered the

Hospital Heartland Medical Center in Sebring. The summit provided an open forum for teens to ask
questions and get answers about sexually transmitted diseases, drugs and teen pregnancy.


question in simple, physical
terms. Without judgment or
inference she explained the
cycle of ovulation.
Two of the questions "If a
woman has sex with another
man (when she is pregnant) can
he affect how your baby will
look"' and "Can sperm be
washed out?" were answered
with an uncomplicated "No."
Some of the questions
showed how teenage fallacies
can turn facts into malicious
gossip. A good example of this
is the question raised concern-
ing the connection between
cold sores, herpes and oral sex.
Leaving little doubt about the
difference between the two
types of herpes, DiLella

SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun
Teen moms Stephanie Keatoe, 17, Stephanie Moreno, 18, and Ashley
Steedly,17, from STAR (Successful Teens Achieve Responsibility)'
High School in Bartow share a laugh after fielding a number of
questions at a seminar for girls from Hill Gustat Middle School.


explained how they are trans-
mitted.
The fact that these questions
did not cause cheeks to blush,
nor did any student show
annoyance with the questioners,
might show just how desperate
teens are to know the truth
behind some very personal sus-
picions.
According to Kyha Carswell,
a community facilitator with the
Devereux Child Abuse Preven-
tion Program, there are several
misconceptions that actually
support teen pregnancy.
Speaking from personal experi-
ence, Carswell used teen jargon
to, dispel some of the fallacies.
"It's not cute to be pregnant.
You are going to hear all about
how cute it is and how everyone
will be there to help you, but
that's not true," Carswell said.
She told students that many
girls believe their mom will
take care of the baby and, once
the, child is born, they will go
back to their normal routines.
But Carswell warned that m.imI
grandmothers have no intention
of helping raise their teenager's
child.
She also warned them not to
expect help from the govern-
ment.
"I don't receive any money
from the government for my
child and now I can't go out
with my friends because my


money has to go for my child's
clothes or food."
Lastly, she gave a real life
perspective -to the teenage
fathers of the children.
"Don't put your choice in
'little boys', because they will
break your heart," Carswell


Three of the panelists were
teenage moms from STAR
(Successful Teens Achieve
Responsibility) High School in
Bartow. Their part of the semi-
nar brought an awareness of
how easily any girl can become
stuck with an unwanted preg-
nancy.
Ashley Steedly, 17, was a
straight 'A' student. She played
basketball and had won a col-
lege scholarship. Getting preg-
nant was the last thing she
expected to happen.
From the physical standpoint
Steedly advised the students
that abstinence is the only way
they could be sure they would-
n't become pregnant. However,
she also gave them some sound
psychological advise.
"Know what your boundaries
are. Know what you want in life
and don't let anyone change
that," she said.
Steedly had wanted to be a
social worker with the
Department of Children and
Families Services. Today, she
says she might be able to attain
her career but she doubts that
those dreams will ever come
true.
Stephanie Moreno, 18, related
that when she became pregnant,
she lost her friends and had to
leave the school she was attend-
ing.


"I gave away my teenage life
for him (her son)," Moreno
said.
She added that she loves her
son and it is hard for her to say
she regrets having him but she
wishes she would have waited.
Stephanie Keatoe, 17, was
blunt with her verbal descrip-
tion of teenage infidelities.
"It's just a game they (boys)
play and you will either end up
with a baby or a disease," she
said.
All three girls reinforced the
faithless father factor. They
agreed that, while most girls
saw sex as the responsibility of
both genders, boys still believe
girls have the right to say no,
and therefore the act or blame
lies with her.
After the seminar the stu-
dents were treated to lunch

Heartland Medical Center, a
bag of goodies and a red carna-
tion, courtesy of Ridge Florists.
The program is available to
all eighth-grade girls in
Highlands County. The next
seminars will be held at 9:30
a.m. Thursday, April 20, for the
Sebring Middle School at First
Baptist Church in Sebring and
at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 27,
for the Avon Park Middle
School at First Baptist Church
in Avon Park.

By 2010, public schools in the United States
will need 2 million more teachers, according to
"Ahead of_ h Cl.l_." .i b.,k fm. the Urban~
Institute Press,,in.W.,ishingii'i.r D C Most of that


computer. And no two people
ever respond in exactly the
same way.
But, as Sara Franza ate cake:
and sipped a sodawhile laugh-
ing with her 5-year-old twins,
Jo-Jo and Allison, Saturdja
afternoon, she appeared well on
her way back.
With a smile she said, "I'm
just glad to be home."


need will come from aging teachers retiring and
more children in the school system.
Last year, the school district hired 140 teach'-
ers. This year, they nm) hat e to hire another 150-
160 because of 49 teachers retiring, several oth-
ers moving on to other careers, and overall
growth of the schools.
Already, the demand is high for math, science,
bilingual and exceptional student education
teachers.
Rego plans to get Highlands County's name
out through teacher and career fairs, seeking
teachers among displaced troops and perhaps
other programs, such as signing bonuses and
referral programs.
He also hopes to train some of the districts
teachers on using marketing principles and
behavioral. interviewing..to identify. people who
Share the best fit for the county's needs. .

Promoting


business
According to Answers.corn,
chambers of commerce are
"associations of business per-
sons and merchants for the
promotion of commercial
interests in the community."
The U.S. Chamber of
Commerce's mission statement
says it wants "to advance
human progress through an
economic political and social
'\ stem h.-ised on individual
freedom, incentive, initiative,
opportuina and responsibili-

Reflecting a community's
qualities, chambers are a
unique blend of altruism and
self-interest. They help
.advance business interests,
while creating a bridge from
business to the public at large.
Chambers have been in
existence for centuries, the
first known chamber having
been formed in Marseilles,
France in 1599.
The state of New York
organized the first American
chamber in 1768. By 1870,
there were at least 40 cham-
bers of commerce throughout
the United States.
Today, according to the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce, there
are 2,800.
TheL.Lke Placid Chamber
of Co-inmerce is one of them.

Operating information central


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid's Chamber of Commerce
focuses on being user friendly.
It takes pride in having the right
answers available quickly.
With only two paid employ-
ees,. that means most of the
work is done by volunteers.
SMaryel Clare, the office
administrator, and Eileen May,
the chamber's director, don't
take those volunteers for grant-
ed.
"We couldn't function with-
out volunteers," Clare said
before saying anything else.
"It's wonderful to have routine
chores taken care of."
There are currently 32 volun-
teers who handle all of the mun-
.dane tasks at the chamber, like
vacuuming or making sure,
there are paper towels in the
bathrooms.
They fill the brochure racks
and keep them neat; up-date the
loose-leaf binders filled with
information; and help with the
newsletter and other mailings.
But most important of all,
they answer the telephone and
greet every visitor, giving direc-
tions or answering questions.
Chamber volunteers have.the
latest information on (among
many other things), yard sales,
fishing licenses, driver's licens-
es, garbage collection, the
Caladium Festival, alligator
control, what stores sell staples,
when a golf course is open,
where to see manatees, and:.
. who's who in the county.
If they don't know an answer,
they know who does and will
do a referral.
For example, if someone
wants to know about the nearest

Dick Meggitt, who volunteers at the Lake Placid Welcome Center and Lake Placid Mural Society, puts
his clowning abilities to good use with young visitors. As one of Toby's Clowns, he goes by the name
Roadrunner and has mastered balloon art. His wife Ora Mae also volunteers at the chamber.


'We couldn't function without volunteers."
MARYEL CLARE, Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce office administrator


coin shop, and there isn't one
listed as a member, the volun-
teer refers the caller to the Lake
Placid Coin Club which can
provide that information.
When it comes to questions
that involve calculations or
opinions, however, like ques-
tions about taxes or real estate,
volunteers defer, instead refer-
ring individuals to the appropri-
ate agency.


So volunteers have to be able
to think on their feet, and
because they are essential, they
have to be reliable. They work
in four hour shifts, and are
assigned a regular shift on a
particular day. The same group
will always work together.
May and Clare are happy to
accommodate individuals. If
someone has a particular talent,
,or absolutely hates a particular


task, adaptations can be made.
Schedules can be adapted as
well.
For example, foi ce Baldwin
is a specialist, ,he makes the
chamber's bank depositsi.
Thelma Cecil, Marlene
Barger and Grace Butcher are
generalists, and make up the
Thursday morning, team at the
chamber. They call themselves
the clov.ns tiec1ause' he\ ;are


always laughing.
Cecil, who hails from
Kentucky, was sold on Lake
Placid when a stranger on the
street helped her find the last
two hidden objects in the hid-
den object mural back when she
was a tourist. "Everyone was so
friendly," Cecil said. "I love
this town and like being a part
of promoting it."
Barger, who is originally
from Annapolis, Md., came to
Lake. Placid via Panama and
Miami. She worked for the
National Security Agency with-
iri the U.S. Southern Command
as an executive secretary.
Barger lightly teases Clare.
"She takes names and kicks,
you know what," Barger said
with a smile, as the others
laughed and nodded in agree-
ment.
Butcher, "like the man who
cuts meat," came to Florida
from West Virginia decades
ago. Her late husband attended
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University in South Florida,
and got a job in Miami immedi-
ately. after graduation. They
retired to Lake Placid. After his
death, Butcher worked in her
garden, .
"I pulled weeds until I turned
. blue," she said. One day she
met with her neighbor, who
happened to be Clare. "What
should I do?" she'd asked. The
rest, a s the\ sa. is history.
The L:dke Pla id Chamber of
Commerce is at 18 N. Oak Ave.
It is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday\ tliroubh Fridja.

A&D Computer offers



services from A to Z


In addition to a continuously running videotape presentation, volunteers are on hand at the mural
gallery at Lake Placid's Chamber'of Commerce to answer questions. The chamber prides itself on being
a source of up-to-date information.


BUSINESS
Continued from 13A
ber operates out of a building
totally renovated following
hurricane destruction.
"It was an ill wind that blew
some good," said the cham-n
ber's executive director Eileen
May.
Built around an expanded
lobby, with a mural gallery
alongside, the chamber's
Welcome Center is sunny,
friendly-and state of the art.
I had the pleasure of joining
the staff recently and working
there one morning.
Now I should note that the
Lake Placid Chamber ol
Commerce has only two pay-
ing positions the office
administrator, Maryel Clare,
and May. The bulk of its work
is done by a volunteer staff.
Because volunteers fill a
wide range of duties (I explain
those in the story section of
this feature), they train exten-
sively and work in teams.
When I arrived Clare sal me
down for the typical new volun-
teer orientation, which included
a $2 tour of the new Welcome
Center. She spent a fair amount
of time showing me where I
could find handouts and copies
of important information.
i','It"became clear. quickly. that
nothing i. left to chance.
The most important qualities
in a volunteer, Clare said. Were
to be friendly and accurate.
She didn't want to hear any
about, maybes, or I thinks.
If I didn't know an answer I
was to say' so and.find someone
who did.
Most of all in the beginning
she wanted me to listen in on
phone calls and guest interac-
tions. She didn't want me to go
solo until she was sure I could
fly. Then she gave me the
ground rules.


I wasn't to recommend
one business over another.
The chamber, she said,
spends a great deal of time cre-
ating fact sheets listing all
available merchants and servic-
es by specialty. I was to use
them.
I should, get up from my
chair when I engaged in conver-
sation with visitors.
I should smile, make the
guest feel relaxed and be friend.
ly.
I should answer the phone
by the second ring'and be sure
-to. give my first name.
I should be professional
and never get involved in peo--
ple's problems..
E I should keep my opinions
to myself.
When taking. messages, I
should do so accurately.
Only after she was sure I had
understood, my duties did she
turn me over to the clown crew,
who call themselves that
because they're always laugh-
ing.
There was a fairly constant
stream of visitors. with a run of
local grandparents bringing in
their grandchildren on spring
break. Those families wanted ito
see all the town's murals, startl-.
ing with the video presentation
in the mural gallery.
But the gallery is the
proyince. o the Lake Placid
Mural Society's own set of vol.
unteers, which is different.
We handled everyone else.
For example, two gentlemen
came looking for directions to
Lake Rachard. They wanted to
buy property.
David Johnso of Fo Irt
Myers, who stops by on a regi-
lar basis, came to collect busi-
ness calling cards. He sells
printed menus which adertise
area businesses.
Bob Pietrowicz, who has just
moved in from Long Island,
N.Y., came looking for local

information.
And Jean Green brought her
visiting grandson Josh Green to
look for information about day
trips.
In between the meeting and
greeting, was a job that went
right to my heart -- preparing a
packet of inserts for the upcom-
ing April newsletter.
Fin a Virgo, which means I
live to organize. Taking one of
each ,insert, color coded to
avoid mistakes, and slipping
them into a flier which had been
folded in half, played right to
my strengths. I found the laven-
der, green, green, white, blue,
blie, pink, yellow, and coral
rhythm soothing and fulfilling.
In fact, I got so focused on
sorting someone had to poke
me in the ribs to get my atten-
tion whenever a visitor walked
in.
In the course of the morning
I learned that the Lake Placid
Chamber is a very busy place.
Walk-ins average 200 a day'
during the winter, when most of
the people are tourists. Walk-ins
drop to 35-50 a day during the
summer when most of the peo-
ple are locals, or about to move
here.
The volunteers are constantly
at work. The emphasis is on
having a relaxed, good time,
while living up to, strict, stan-
dards and handing out good
information.
The business of chambers of
commerce turns out to be all
about business, conducted in a
businesslike way.

Next week Christopher
"' ,itl, goes 'on the auction
block with Insight Auctioneers.

AVON PARK Dustin
Wells loves anything to do with
computers. That's why he
recently opened A&D
Computer Services.
Wells gives free computer
diagnostic and only charges if a
person wishes to have the prob-
lem fixed. In addition, he makes
home and business calls. If a
customer needs something not
in stock, he will special order it
at no extra cost. Wells offers
specials like free shipping when
purchasing a complete system
and any student with a valid
school identification is entitled
to a 10 percent discount.
Starting from $12.95 he has
keyboards, a mouse at $6.95,
jump drives for $29.95, sound
cards at $19.95, DVD+R and
DVD-R media at $19.95. There
are digital cameras for $39.95
and Web cams for $29.95.
There are car and gaming
accessories and kid toys like lit-
tle remote control cars.
One favorite in the store is
the jumpdrive, which is a little
hard drive on a keychain that a
person can save work on and
take 'it with them anywhere.
Wells ,said he personally used
them on a daily basis in college
and doesn't know what he'd do
without one.
This year, Wells will finish
an associate's degree in com-
puter science, and will soon
complete an associate's in
applied science in computer
programming and analysis. He
has been on the president's
honor list for two years and
holds a 3.75 grade point aver-
age. His next goal is a bache-
lor's degree in computer sci-
ence.
"I'm proud of my wife Anita
and our 2-year-old son, but this.
store has always been my
dream. I live on computers. I'rh
now 25, but started when I was
about 12. That's when I discov-

Local quilter shows work in Kentucky


Special to the News-Sun
Sebring area quilter Sherry
Fourez has been selected as a
semifinalist for the 22nd annual
American Quilters Society
Quilt Show and Contest, April
26-29, at the Paducah Expo
Center in Paducah, Ky.
Fourez has been chosen to
join 428 others in the annual
contest. In its 22nd year, the
competition is offering
$114,000 in total prize money.
The quilt, Sparkling Pineapple
Mini Quilt, measures 24 inches
wide by 24 inches long and rep-
resents hundreds of hours of
work.
This entry was chosen from a
field of 806 quilts. From this
point on, the work will compete
against others within its catego-
ry. Three quilting authorities
will judge this elite group prior
to .the opening of the show. The
individual quilt named Best of
Show will garner the Hancock's

FMO opposes

additional

costs for

part-time

residents
Special to the News-Sun
LARGO Charlie Galla-
gher, president of the
Federation of Manufactured
Homeowners of Florida, said
his organization opposes any
attempt to make those who own
manufactured homes in Florida
but live part time in other states
bear an additional burden for
insurance.
"Our members," Gallagher
said, "already bear a dispropor-
tionate share of the insurance
crisis burden simply because
they own manufactured homes.
To single out some of our mem-
bers now because they do not
live in Florida year around is
patently unfair. All of us who
own homes in Florida went into
this crisis together and all of us
should work together to work
our way out of it."
He said that manufactured
homeowners are feeling the
insurance impact more than the
rest of the state.
"They are being dropped by
the thousands," he said, "and
they are being forced to insure
with Citizens, and that's if they
can afford it. We're hearing
from some of our members that
they cannot afford it and are
,being forced to go without
insurance."
The FMO has been repre-
senting mobile home and man-
ufactured homeowners in the
State of Florida since' 1964.
The organization maintains a
lobbyist in Tallahassee to mon-
itor legislation that affects their
members.
"This is not the first insur-
ance crisis that we have faced,"
said immediate Past President
and President Emeritus Don
Hazelton.
"We went, through an insur-
ance crisis in 1995 when insur-
ance companies wanted to stop
covering homes located in
coastal areas. We convinced the
legislature then to declare a
moratorium on dropping poli-
cies and we need to convince
the legislature now that sin-
gling out a segment of home-
owners to help resolve this
problem is wrong."
The FMO has submitted pro-
posed legislation that would, if
passed, require Citizen's
Insurance to give discounts or
credits to homeowners who
have completed a retrofit pro-
gram upgrading their homes'
storm readiness.
Gallagher said the organiza-
tion would direct its lobbyist
and members to let legislators
know that the FMO opposes
any attempt to require home-
owners who are not in Florida
year around to pay more for
insurance than other homeown-
ers.
Gallagher emphasized that
the homeowners are not


tourists.
"They are essentially part-
time residents," he said, "and
they make a large contribution
to .Florida's economy. They
come here for six months or
more, spend their money
freely, and many even work
while they're here. It's not like
they come here for a couple of
weeks and then go back home."


of Paducah Best of Show award
and a $20,000 cash prize. In
addition, the quilt will become
part of the permanent collection
in the Museum of the American
Quilters Society.
Regardless of how the quilt
places in the final judging, all
429 quilts will be displayed at
the annual quilt show. The
annual quilt exhibition brings
more than 35,000 quilters, col-
lectors, enthusiasts and vendors
to. Paducah each spring, when

the city shows how it earned the
nickname, Quilt City, USA.
AQS President Meredith
Schroeder stated that quilts are
no longer regulated to serving
just as bed covers. Today's
quilts are works of art, using
fabric and thread as the medi-
um. The 'quilts in this year's
contest are from around the
world and feature beautiful
palettes of color. Entries are
from 46 U.S. states and 12
other countries, including
France, Israel, Korea and.
Australia.
Fourez is a lives in
Tanglevwood Resort during the
winter months and in Illinois
duringthe summer months. She
has been quilting and teaching
quilting for 17 years. She is a
member of the Highlands
County Quilt Guild, the
Tanglethreads quilt group in
Tanglewood Resort, the
Vermilion County Quilt Guild
in Illinois. and the American
Quilters Society. -

Agnes 'Pug' Martin still going strong


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Agnes "Pug"
Martin might not be the eldest
employee working in Highlands
County, but she's close.
At 80 years old, there are
only two people her senior still
actively working.
Martin doesn't look or act
her age. She has a strong hand-
shake, a brisk walk and a twin-
kle in her eye.
Thursday morning she was
sporting a birthday tiara and
passing out slices of cake.
Martin is a clerk at Sebring
Middle School. She has worked
there for nine years, having
taken the long road to get there.
She and her husband retired
to Highlands County from
Michigan.
Bored in retirement she vol-
unteered at the Highlands
Regional Medical Center, but
after her husband's death she
became even more restless and
needed to do more with her
time.
A friend convinced her to
interview with the school board
for a job as hall monitor at
Sebring High School.
It was the. first job interview
she'd ever had.
Her first job, back in
Michigan, was as a secretary to
a lawyer. He had hired her on
the spot.
Thirty years later,, while still
with the lawyer, her next
employer, a publisher, came to
her with an offer she couldn't
refuse.
So even though she'd been
employed all her life, joining
the school board was a special


celebrate milestone
April 12
OKEECHOBEE After
two decades, the South Florida
- -.Water Management District and
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
have finished buying the land
needed for the final phases of
the Kissimmee River Restora-
tion project.
The Kissimmee. River Re-
storation project is among the
largest ecosystem restoration
projects, in the world and con-
tinues to set new standards for
measuring restoration success.
The project was authorized
by Congress in the 1992 Water
Resources Development Act to
restore more than 40 square
miles of river and floodplain
ecosystem, 'including 43 miles
of meandering river channel
and 27,000 acres of wetlands.
The restoration project is a
joint partnership with the South
Florida Water Management
District and U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers. Members of both
agencies will hold a ceremony
Wednesday during the South
Florida Water. Management
District Governing Board meet-


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Kelly Birge, of Sebring Middle School, hands a basket full of cards and 80 balloons to Agnes 'Pug'
Martin for her 80th birthday Thursday morning at the school. Martin has worked in the front office of
SMS for nine years.


experience.
Unfortunately, the hall moni-
tor position was only funded for
one year. But people talked her
into applying for another posi-
tion, the one she holds now.
As a clerk, Martin does a lot
of data entry. Her greatest
responsibility, however, is
preparing the paperwork for the
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test.
It is a huge job, which takes
from mid-January to mid-
March to complete. Secrecy
and tight deadlines make the


work especially.challenging.
"It's really indescribable, it's
so complicated," Martin said.
This year she was the seasoned
veteran on the organizing team.
That meant for three months
she was rarely at her desk.
Instead she and three co-
workers were locked away in a
secured room, to which only
they had the keys. No one else
was allowed inside.
The tests arrived in January,
packed in large cardboard
boxes. Sebring Middle School
receives 40 boxes full of tests.
Martin explained that each
test booklet has to be sorted by
test, subject and grade. And
each booklet has to be properly
labeled with a student's name,
grade, ethnicity, gender, and
student ID number, school ID
number, district ID number, and
whether or not that student
takes any exceptional student
education classes.
Labels are pre-printed, but
are based on information posted&
in October, so many changes
have to be made.
The work of verifying every
test after they've been adminis-


tered, is almost as difficult as
getting them ready.
The number of tests a teacher
received has to match the num-
ber returned, and label data has
to be double checked.
Martin is proud of this year's
team. "They give you a window
of three days to get all the mate-
rials in," she said. "We got them
there a day early."
Martin has no plans for
another retirement anytime
soon. "I'm happy working
here," she said smiling broadly.
"The students and the faculty,
it's like a family."
In any case, she added, "I
can't believe I'm the age that I
am. I don't feel it at all."
And having said that, she
said good-bye and took off to
deliver another slice of cake.

County discusses options



for HRMC, Parkway


. By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING The county has
two options to improve traffic
flow around Highlands
Regional Medical Center when
Sebring Parkway Phase 2 gets
built.
County commissioners said
Tuesday they would like to see
one option used, to alleviate
concerns of the Parkway caus-
ing traffic snarls for the medical
facility.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said the originally
proposed five-lane section at
the Parkway (Highlands
Avenue) and U.S. 27, would
have pushed the road to the
edge of the outpatient center on
the west side of the hospital.
Gavarrete told county com-
missioners on Tuesday that he
modified the plans so they
wouldn't need as much right of
way only about 18-20 feet
from that side of the road.
It would leave enough room
for a driveway past the outpa-
tient center.
Option 1
Engineers could reroute
incoming traffic around the
back of the hospital by widen-
ing and improving Medical
Center Avenue, making it the
new main entrance with turn
lanes. The hospital's main and
employee entrances would
change to right-turn only.
Gavarrete would do away
with the drainage ditch in front
of the hospital, put in a culvert,
and add a right-turn decelera-
tion lane for the current main
entrance.
He has seen drivers enter
Highlands Avenue from U.S. 27
and come to a complete stop to
turn right into the hospital, risk-
ing getting hit from behind by
other motorists.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said it's .dangerous now
with only one northbound lane
on Highlands Avenue. The
Parkway would add an. extra
lane, and a turn lane should
help even more, he said.
Parking
The hospital would still lose
18 parking spaces directly in
front of the clinic, but
Gavarrete could add about 100
new parking spaces in the
wooded area between employee
parking and Medical Center
Avenue.
The rear parking, area, just
north of the emergency room
entrance is not very well delin-
eated, he said. Repainting the
stripes and establishing en-
trances and exits would lose a
few spaces, but may make it a
more comfortable parking lot.
Option 2
Another option would still
use Medical Center Avenue as
the main entrance and add the
extra parking. It would also
extend the road east to connect
with private roads connected to
The Groves of Victoria Park
senior residential complex.
It would change a cul de sac
into a through street, bringing

The second option for improving traffic flow around Highlands
Regional Medical Center when Sebring Parkway Phase 2 gets built
would use Medical Center Avenue as the main entrance and add the
extra parking. It would also extend the road east to connect with
private roads connected to The Groves of Victoria Park senior resi-
dential complex.


traffic directly off U.S. 27 into
the hospital property, eliminat-
ing some of the space needed
for a deceleration lane on the
Parkway.
Since Tuesday, Gavarrete has
not had a chance to approach
that developer about this plan.

Expansion
Gavarrete said Highlands
Regional Medical Center is
"really landlocked at this time."
The county could purchase

grove land directly to the north
of the hospital for expansion.
Health Management Asso-
ciates leases the property from
the Highlands County Hospital
Taxing District, the entity that
owns the land and ran the hos-
pital until about 20 years ago.
During a break in the meet-
ing, Commissioner Guy Maxcy
noted that the county would be
wise to invest in the hospital
property, since it is a county
asset.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Master


of all
I'll never forget the
excitement of owning our
first home. We carefully
prepared it for the day we
would move in. The corner
property with a brook run-
ning along side was
enveloped by woods for our
boys to explore.
< We said we owned it; but,
we really didn't. The sellers
held the mortgage. A high
inflationary .time had made
it virtually impossible to
"own" a home. So we wel-
comed God's gracious pro-
vision for us.
After three short years, we
had to move for health rea-
sons. We opened our fingers
and let our house slide out of
our hands as we often
must do with possessions we
call our own. In turn, we
gripped more tightly to
God's hand and the direction
he would lead us next.
And in each such move
and step in faith, the Lord
continually reminded us that
ultimate ownership is his.
This thought jumped out at
me as I read about Jesus, tri-
umphal entry into Jerusalem
the day we have come to
celebrate as Palm Sunday.
On his way to Jerusalem,
Jesus sent two of his disci-
ples to a nearby village
where they would find a colt
tied there that had never
been ridden.
. "Untie it and bring it,"
(Luke 19: 30, The Message).
Then Jesus anticipated any
objections.
"If anyone says anything,
'asks, 'What are you doing?'
say, 'His Master needs
him,"' (vs. 31)
The disciples set off -
.ready to do their Master's
bidding. They had walked
with him long enough to
know he was trustworthy.
Sure enough, someone asked
that very question and they
replied,
"His Master needs him,"
(vs. 34)
1 Jesus rode this colt into
Jerusalem to the triumphant
shouts of the people who had.
witnessed his miraculous
and mighty works on their
behalf. No matter who the
colt "belonged" to on a day-
to-day .basis, ultimately it
had been a provision of God.,
"Every creature in the for-
est is mine, the wild animals
on all the mountains. I know
every mountain bird by
name; the scampering field
mice are my friends, all cre-
ation and its bounty are
mine," (Psalm 50:10-12, The
Message)
Is there anything, there-
fore, that we own that is
ours? We amass much
between our birth and death,
but we bring nothing in and
take nothing out. God, in his
graciousness toward us,
allows us to enjoy the boun-
ty of our labors and of his
world.
Once we truly realize this,
we know contentment in
managing well all that he has
entrusted to us not only in
material possessions; but, in
those matters of eternal sig-
nificance that brings much
joy in the heavenlies.
Let's enthusiastically
praise him. He is Master of
all. Selah.

Parish nursing


at its best

By JAN MEROP
A ION PARK
he pansh nursing program in Highlands
County ma\ not haie had in mind diii-
sion and multiplication v.hen it began.
But it is an ine~ able result of caring.
Sonov.s are halted and jo s are doubled as people
.Je touched through its variouss programs. The local
Hiehlands Counti program began %\ ith a killing mdi-
idiual % ho found retirement from active nursing left
her '. ith o00o much nime on her hands.
Jo\ce Piler. a re2,stered nurse. .a. bored. What
could she do that \'ouid be ':,orthh\\hile For almost
nine e.ears she has found fulfillment as the parish
ni.rse coordinator for \Valker Memorial Sexenth-dal
Ad'entist Church in A% on Park
"W\hen Chaplain i Way ne i McNutt approached me
about the parish nursing program. it w as in its infan-
oL, an idea more than a reality A hospital coordinator
hadn't exen been cho-enr yet But. I thought that it
might be fun." Pifer said.
An onenaltion course in Orlando opened her eyes
to the need and .aie her ideas of ho\i it could be
implemented.
'Bul I didn't intend to start in our large W\alker
Memorial Chuich. I wanted to cet my feet ,\et in a
small church in the communityy" she admitted.
Ho e\ er. the pastor at the time. the Re\. Douglas
Jacobs encouraged her to head tip the program at
walker r Pifer agreed if he would d get her a good assis-
i int. She ias been putngn one foot in front of the
other e',er since.
"Ftrt or, m\ agenda %\as to get a lot of volunteers .
The\ rfe the heart of this type of nuistr,, and keep us
gong." Pifer sJid. "The. do .hat the) love to do for
the I, e of done it."
Her core group consists of 10 retired nurses,
licensed practical nurses and registered nurses, who
started A\ith her. Appro\iniatel\ 20 volunteers offer
their time and talents according to the needs through-
out the \ear Pifer communicates once a month by
phone to stay\ on top of things and lets the \ volunteers
kno\% of programs the\ mau \ ant to be in\ol\ed \%ith
in the area.
Biut. their first outreach has remained a constant.


Bringing joy to shut-ins
Pifer secured the names of as many shut-ins as pos-
sible; .whether still living at home, in assisted living or
nursing homes. Parish nurses visit them at least once a
month or more if possible.
"The parish nurses, job description says, 'no hands
on.' In other words, we are to visit, comfort, check for
safety, food even bringing a meal if need be and
be sure medications are being taken," Pifer said.
Parish nurses also provide transportation to doctors
or the store. They even do respite care for the primary
caregiver giving him or her time to take a break, go
shopping or whatever.
"We stress that a parish nurse never leave a home
without praying with a person," Pifer said.
During a visit, the
parish nurse evaluates
needs and, when neces-
sary, connects a shut-in
with services provided by
the community; such as
Sebring Meals on Wheels
or counseling..If safety is
an issue, they get in touch
with a relative who,
S usually isn't local and
keep in touch or make
suggestions.
They highly recom-
mend LifeLine for those
Joyce Pifer who live alone. This pro-
vides them a connection
for immediate help and is a service of Florida
Hospital.
"We work with home health and any other agency
that can lend support as people need it," Pifer said.
As with other arms of parish nursing, visitation
helps relieve the pastor's load. Though he loves to
visit the shut-ins, he may not be able to all the time.
Also, the church community actively serves in some-
thing worthwhile helping people know they are
loved and cared for "especially the lonely ones."

Free health fairs
With the shut-in ministry securely in place, Pifer
looked to taking the next step a free health fair.
Each November when the winter guests have returned,
they offer many services under one roof.
For example, flu shots; blood pressure checks;
height and weight; strength and stretching tests; hear-
ing and eye tests as well as having a podiatrist exam-
ine feet; and, blood work with lipid study (for a fee).
All of these checkups are designed to offer preven-
tive care and bring any problems to the attention of
the individual. Each participant is given a form to fill
South one appropriate for men; another for women.
The information is fed into a computer program and
the participant receives a print out that gives him a
score rating for good health practices and recommen-
dations for improving health age. For example, advice
on smoking, activity, sleep, weight, etc. :
"Health fairs are extremely popular when We are


able to give the flu shot. But, all in all, they are well
attended and informational," Pifer said;

Lifestyle changes
Vegetarian cooking classes are a fun way to involve
the community in healthy lifestyle changes. To that

end, they use the Step Fast Lifestyle Seminar. This
12-part video series features leading experts in pre-
ventive medicine.
The Step Fast Lifestyle Seminar brochure says,
"While it is true that 'heredity loads the gun,' it is also
true that 'lifestyle pulls the trigger.'"
"We come from the perspective that our bodies are
the temple of God and we want to restore man back to
the image of God," Pifer said.
Such topics as stress management, fatigue, n.aiural
remedies, benefits of vegetarianism, cancer and the
immune system, and maximizing your devotional life
create awareness regarding the relationship between
lifestyle and wellness.
"The present cooking classes have been a lot of
fun; a mini health fair with weigh ins, blood pressure
checks and walking for exercise before'the demonstra-
tion and meal even fun kitchen related door prizes.
Participants receive cookbooks and other handouts.,
We're planning a scavenger hunt at a local grocery
store, too," Pifer said.
Pifer does the planning and some of the demonstra-
tion. But she credits Brenda Garza, her co-host, who
is a dietician as well as head of the Wound Center at
Florida Hospital, as the brains behind the cooking
classes.
"Brenda lectures as I demonstrate. We're a good
team," Pifer said'.
Walker Memorial Seventh-day Adventist Church
believes in whole person health. It is the church's goal
to promote physical, mental, social and spiritual
health as the Bible teaches. T
"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things
and be in health, just as your soul prospers,, (3 John::
2, NKJV)

Delivery of meals
Every Wednesday, volunteers deliver meals to those
who may be recovering from surgery, grieving the
loss of a loved one or simply need some help for a
period of time.
"This has been a very successful and ongoing min-

ing class.

istry in which church members prepare food for :hose
in the church community and without," Pifer said.
"The pastors get the names to us."
In 2005, parish nurses delivered 3,276 meals, trav-
eled 6,034 miles and volunteered 1,344 hours.

Prescription assistance
One of the newest programs Pifer is'introducing
through the parish nursing program at Walker is a pre-
scription assistance plan.

we are trying to pick up the slack and reach out to

* This is another in a seriess
of articles written about the
new area urban conservation
program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods.'

Florida.has the third most
diverse wildlife population of
any state; especially here in
the south central area. But
rapidly growing urban devel-
opment is destroying native
wildlife habitat. Your Florida-
Friendly yard can provide
habitat for displaced wildlife.
As you create a new land-
scape or improve your exist-
ing one, add a few features for
wildlife, and you will bring
your yard to life with birds,
butterflies and beneficial
insects. Food, water and
cover attract wildlife, but you
also need to maintain your
yard so the impact it has on

To lure wildlife to your
yard provide food in the form
of plants that bear seed, fruit
foliage or flowers that you are
willing to have eaten by birds,
butterflies and caterpillars.
Running water or a bird-
bath also will attract wildlife
to your yard. Be sure to empty
and clean your birdbath every
few days to prevent mosquito
breeding and bacterial con-
tamination.
To attract birds, design
planted areas that include a
tree canopy, with shrubs,
grasses and flowers under-
neath. To help draw birds,
allow the grasses and flowers
to go to seed on occasion. If
allowed and not a hazard,
lea'e dead trees in place.
Many birds usie snags for
perching, nesting and feeding.

Jesus' entry into the capitol city of
Jerusalem sparked a spontaneous cele-
bration and, all along the road leading
into the city, people broke off palm ."
fronds, a symbol of victory, and both H
waved them and strew them along the
road in front of the colt on which he
rode. Today's parade participants and j
spectators are not going ,the natural
route, but toss out plastic in a myriad
of shapes and colors, all of which has LIBRAR
to be swept up and hauled to the dump.
While plastic is cheap and readily Car
available, the idea of living in harmo- Hess
ny with nature is still one of the most
important lessons we must learn.
Books on and about nature may be found in
.abundance at the six Heartland Library
Cooperative libraries. ,We are especially happy
that the Avon Park Library's renovation is com-
plete and their building at 100 N. Museum Ave.
has increased in size, giving more space for mate-
rials and patrons, alike. Librarian Don Brusha has
"incorporated some natural elements into the
'building's design, reflecting the tropical zone we
inhabit. Watch for the grand re-opening
announcement in the paper.
Lake Placid Library also emphasizes a connec-
tion with surrounding nature in their walled gar-
den, a place for a quiet read or contemplation.
Retired librariani Merry Cresswell worked with
the local garden club to develop a special garden
. spot when their new library was built. The garden
club had maintained a beautiful shady garden
beside their former library building, now the
Lake Placid Police Station.
When we think about using what is-growing to
help ourselves be healthy, a number of books
come to mind: "The Drug & .Natural Medicine
Advisor;" "Migraines: a Natural Approach;"
'Complete Book of Natural & Medicinal Cures;"
"Cider Vinegar: The Natural Remedy;" "Natural
Cures for the, Common Cold;" "Aspirin
Alternatives;" "The Allergy Self-help Cookbook:
Over 325 Natural Foods Recipes;" "10 Natural
Remedies That Can Save Your Life;" "Natural
Health and Wellness Encyclopedia;" "25 Natural
Ways to. Relieve Irritable Bowel Syndrome;" or
"Healing Arthritis the Natural Way."

If you've ever wrinkled your nose at
strong cleaners and other chemical
solutions (or had to use gloves to pro-
tect your hands), then you'll be happy
to borrow Lake Placid's book "Clean &

Nontoxic and Environmentally Safe

Are you one of those who enjoy "shelling?"


Browse through "The American Museum of

through "Natural Baskets."
I'll confess that there also is trouble in para-
dise, as attested to in "1001 Questions Answered

beauty around us. Claim some quiet time with
"Acknowledge the Wonder: Harmony With the

"Janet Marsh's Nature Diary;" "Exploring Wild.

Novak featured as artist for April


LAKE PLACID Jennie Novak, bom and
educated in Tampa, is the featured artist of the
month at the Lake Placid Caladium Cooperative.,
Her childhood yielded many awards for draw-
ing as early as 5 years old. To further her art
career, Novak attended Sierra College in
Northern California acquiring her degree in art.
The dean of humanities requested she become an
art instructor for them, and purchased several of
her limited edition art creations as gifts for
prominent faculty members. She has been com-
missioned to paint several murals throughout
Northern Califortia..
Over the past 25 years, Novak has been teach-
ing art, and is always pursuing new avenues for
teaching.' Watercolor, ceramics and sculpting
classes taught at schools, senior centers and art
trade shows are but a few of her teaching accom-
plishments. As a certified Fiesta Colors teacher,
and their ambassador, she has traveled the United
States teaching this exciting ceramics painting


'Art is my love, teaching

is my passion.'
JENNIE NOVAK, artist

technique at ceramic trade shows.
Watercolor has long been thought of as the,
most difficult and unforgiving medium out there,
but, Novak loves to prove this misconception
wrong through her watercolor classes. She is a
certified Terry Madden teacher, and is one of
only a fewMadden certified teachers throughout
the United States.
As an, accomplished artist in her own right, she
has been able to share her God-given talent with
others eager to explore their own vision in art.
"Art is my love, teaching is my passion,"
Novak said.

Lakewatch needs more volunteers


Bunny Boat Parade coming


The Florida Lakewatch pro-
gram is a water quality monitor-
ing network of dedicated volun-
teers that collect monthly water
samples from a lake or lakes.
Volunteers take the water sam-
ples to collection centers (there
are three in Highlands County)
where they are picked up by a
Lakewatch employee and taken
to a laboratory at the University
of Florida in Gainesville to be
analyzed for nitrogen, phospho-
rus and chlorophyll content.
Volunteers also measure water
clarity with a secchi disc while
they are, collecting samples. A
secchi disc is lowered into the,
water until 'it disappears, and
that depth is recorded. The sam-
pling process takes about an
hour per month.
The information gathered by
volunteers provides our office
with information that we need
to determine how good or bad
water quality &is and whether


water quality changes
in a given lake over
time. Nitrogen and I
phosphorus levels tell
us whether pollution
is affecting the lake.
High levels of these
nutrients often lead to
increased growth of
algae.
Chlorophyll, NEWN S
which is found inside T
algae, is used to esti-
mate the amount of WATE
algae present. Algae
cause cloudiness in Jennife
water and can be
found in high levels
at times, during an algae
"bloom." Algae blooms are of
concern because large amounts
of algae dying suddenly, which
can happen after a few cloudy
days, can deplete the oxygen in
the water as the algae decom-
pose. Oxygen :depletion can
lead to fish kills.


FROM

HE

ERSHED

'r Abbey


The Highlands
County Lakes
Program uses
Lakewatch data to
monitor changes in
lake water quality
and to answer citizen
questions about water
quality on a daily
basis. The value of
these volunteer serv-
ices to the county are
about $200,000 per
year to cover about
40 lakes the labor
to collect the samples
and the cost of analy-
sis can be very


expensive. The University of
Florida receives money from
the state legislature to cover
laboratory costs, so these serv-
ices are entirely free to the
county.
There are several lakes in the
county that are in need of a vol-
unteer. Currently, all but eight


public access lakes have volun-
teers taking monthly samples.
The eight public access lakes
that need a good volunteer are
lakes Chilton, Lelia, Pioneer,
Trout, Tulane and Viola in Avon
Park, and lakes Crews and Hill
in Lake Placid. Many private
lakes also need volunteers.
These include lakes Basket and
Blue in Sebring, lakes
Counterfeit, Deer, Duck, Fox,
Isis, Pythias and Silver in Avon
Park, and lakes Mirror, Nellie,
Ruth and Simons in Lake
Placid.
If you have a boat and would
like more information on
becoming a volunteer, contact
our office at 402-6545 or visit

Occupational therapy: A profession



that focuses on restoring life skills


Special to the vews-Sun
For millions of people, the
service of occupational therapy
is a lifeline. People of all ages
receive it to help them partici-
pate in the activities of their
daily life. Sometimes people
need occupational therapy to do
things we take for granted, like
getting -dressed, being produc-
tive at school or work, eating
unassisted, even socializing.
Occupational therapy doesn't
just treat medical conditions, it
helps people .stay engaged in
;he ii i.tic- that give them
pleaiMre ii- a sense of purpose,
despite challenges.
Occupational, therapists do
this by helping people surmount
their disabilities or medical
conditions to do everyday
things. The nature of the thera-
py depends on the individual
and their environments; occu-
pational therapists consider the
whole person when developing
a therapy plan. Occupational
therapists collaborate with
physicians and other profes-
sionals to ensure a comprehen-
sive approach.
,Children, for instance, some-
times have behavioral or devel-
opmental problems that limit
their educational progress.
Lawmakers believe occupation-
al therapy is so important to the
well-being of children, federal
law mandates that schools must
offer occupational therapy to
children who need it.
Occupational therapy is "out-
come oriented," which means
therapists help clients work
toward achievable performance
goals.
In rehabilitation clinics,
occupational therapists and
assistants help adults learn or
regain skills that allow them to
do meaningful things every day


like driving, shopping, prepar-
ing meals and more. All types
of people need this'kind of help
everyday, from injured workers
to grandparents recovering
from stroke or surgery.
Occupational therapy helps
avoid health .problems and
makes it easier to live with
them.
Consider the growing senior
population, healthier people are
living longer. Occupational
therapy research proves that
..keeping people active and
healthy as they age will not
only improve their quality of'
life, it will lower their health


care costs as well. That is why
there are occupational therapy
programs focusing on wellness
and prevention to help sen-
iors stay healthy and active.
Trained therapists can make
homes safer for people with
reduced mobility and failing
vision. Occupational therapists
also can teach seniors new driv-
ing techniques that will keep
them behind the wheel and safe.
Occupational therapy
addresses one of the most
important aspects of rehabilita-
tion and recovery the return

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


The eyes have it for better or worse


My eyes have
been a source of
trouble and afiuse-
ment ever since I'
was young. I admit


LAURA'
Laura


Sports aEditor I think they are the
nicest part of my
face they are dark brown
with decent lashes. But look
9 Ppast the brown, and things get
interesting.
For one thing, both eyes see
things very differently. While
the left eye is nearsighted, the
right eye is farsighted. This can
make getting new eyeglasses
very entertaining as the person
filling my perscripton studies it
* - and sees two very different
lenses prescribed. This last time
when I went to fill my prescrip-
ton it caused the Wal-Mart
Vision Center's computer to
beep in confusion, and it had to
be reassured that yes, the per-
scripton was correct.
But what I really want to talk
about is my latest round of vis-
'its with the eye doctor. These
visits got started when the right
- temple piece of my glasses fell


LOOK off.
S LOOK Before I went to
the trouble and
z Ware expense of getting
new glasses, I
decided to see my
eye doctor and find
out if my perscripton had
changed. When I called the
office, I discovered it had been
more than four years since they
had seen me. Time flies when
you're having fun.
Now I have a wonderful eye
doctor, whose name I. am not
mentioning to, keep myself out
of trouble. Some of the tests he
does would make grown men
cry.
The test that is the most
uncomfortable is one in which
he shines a light in your eyes
and instructs you to look in var-
ious directions. Sounds simple,
right? It is amazing how some-
thing that sounds so simple
could cause so much discom-
fort. It should fall under the cat-
egory of "cruel and unusual
punishment."
Afterwards, the doctor start-


ed rattling off all the positive
things. Then he dropped the
other shoe: he wanted to test me
for glaucoma.
Since my father had been
diagnosed with the condition
several years ago, the doctor's
announcement wasn't a com-
plete surprise. Nevertheless,
given the tests I had already
endured I was leery of what else
might be in store. The doctor
assured me the tests were rela-
tively painless and nothing to
worry about.
In fact, the most annoying
part of the tests were I had to
take them on two separate days.
There are reasons for having to
do it that way that boil down to
It Is The Way Things Are. So I
have seen a lot of my eye doc-
tor's office in recent weeks.
When the tests came back, it
was determined that I, did
indeed have glaucoma. For
those of you who don't deal
with this, the upshot is I have to
use eyedrops. Every day. For-
ever.
This does not appear to be a


big deal until you realize I have
problefias putting on eye make-
up without my eyelids flicker-
ing. Forget eyeliner. And now
I'm supposed to do drops on a
daily basis?
I'm trying to learn. I took the
eyedrops the doctor's office
gave me, and with Don's help
got them in my eyes that night.
The next morning my eyes
were red enough for me to star
in a horror film. I double
checked with my doctor's
office and they agreed that red
eyes are not a good thing. So I
get to try some other eyedrops.
after a round of "liquid tears."
This means' I have plenty of
opportunities to practice actual-
ly getting the drops into my
strange brown eyes. And I will
work it. out. Computers are a lot
harder to work with if you can't
see. Eyedrops are a small price
to pay for my sight.

Moore, executive director of
Southwest- Florida Water
oManagement District:
I have been taking lake level
readings for Lake Hill, Station
-4405 in Leisure Lakes; for,
about 13 years and have been
sending the' readings to your
office.
On Lake Hill there are more
than 40 homes at the present
S. time. The homes are valued
from $300 0 to more than
__-0 -o $500,000 and the vacant lots
are now selling for more than
$100,000. 'We are all paying.
our fair share of taxes to the
state, county and the Southwest

..- The culverts and the creeks
in Leisure Lakes are overgrown

S. into Jack Creek, which in turn
flows into Josephine Creek and

owners alerted the county that

earthen dam next to the culvert

The' water was rising in and

on the lake. Highlands County

At the present time no fresh
water is entering Lake Hill
from the creek and there is no
outlet for the water that enters
the lake from rainfall and
springs. The 10-year flood
level is 101 feet. That anrd
more, could come from one or
more hurricanes that can hit
this, area. As we all are aware,
three hurricanes hit Highlands
County in 2004.
A new culvert and dam need
to be placed at the far eastern
end of the creek leading into
the lake. The. dam boards need
to be replaced on Northern
Boulevard and security fences
placed' around the dams' at
those locations so only author-
ized personnel can remove
them or replace them as needed
in the dry and wet season. No
trespassing signs should be
placed in the creeks and at
those locations. A state statute
and/or a county ordinance
should be passed by our
Legislature or county commis-
sion to allow our law enforce-
merit officers to take immediate
action when they observe a vio-
lation in and at those locations.
I have had some representa-
tives from the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District advise me that the
SWFWMD was not responsi-
ble for controlling the water
entering Lake Hill from the
creeks and swales in Leisure
Lakes. I also had a representa-
tive advise me that Highlands
County Road and Bridge was
not responsible for the water
entering Lake Hill from the
creeks and sales.
If this is so, why have I been
sending water level informa-
tion to the SWFWMD for 13
years and why did Road and
Bridge come to our rescue
when the creeks and culverts

were overflowing in Leisure
Lakes to help stop the flow of
water into Lake Hill? It seems
to me that both agencies are
involved and have a "job to
complete and solve our lake
level problems together.
I would appreciate a reply
from all the agencies to whom I
am sending this letter. If any of
the homes or properties on
Lake Hill suffers any damage
or loss from high water, several
homeowners have suggested to
me that perhaps a class action
civil suit should be the next
step.

More than a

tournament

Editor:
It was more than just a soft-
ball tournament when the
Special STARS athletes took to
the field. April 1 at Max Long
Recreational Complex in
Sebring. It was a true test of
courage for some special atlf-
letes and a real learning experi-
ence for all those involved.

BOUQUETS
Continued from 4D

Athletes with disabilities
learned not only how to play
the game, but they built some
real close friendships with their
teammates who were partners
in community. And, the part-
ners also gained knowledge
about people with disabilities.
It was a true bonding experi-
ence and I am deeply touched
that everyone made this a very
successful event. We had more
than 130, athletes playing in the
tourney and several sponsors.
who graciously donated money
, and inkind gifts.
The special athletes' courage
was tested as they continued to
battle it out for one solid month
in training. I watched several
special athletes fall down, get
hit in'the face or body with
balls and even get overheated.
But, not once did any of them,
give up. Tears were shed, but.
with a quick hug from one of
their team players they jumped .
right back tip to try it again.
They never gave up. They were
all true champions.
At first, some partners in the
community were apprehensive
about playing on the field with
the athletes. It wasn't until they
had time to learn each other's
abilities: that things started to
gel. I can't thank enough the
coaches Bryant Musselman
from The, Palms of Sebring
team, Roberta Creech from
Duffer's, Sports Grille team,
Rob and Amy Torres from Beef'
O'Brady's team, Jaime
Bustamnante from C & K Lawn
Service team, Joel Birnie from
Econo Lodge team and Bobby
Sexton from Gold Star team -
for taking time to teach these
special athletes the skills to
play softball.
I also want to thank the busi-


nesses who sponsored each of
these teams.
Other sponsors who con-
tributed were Wal-Mart, News-
Sun, VFW Post 3880 Men's
Auxiliary, Highlands Sertoma
Club, R.J. Gator's, Lampe &
Kiefer Hearing Aid Center,
David and Doris Magowan,
Kevin and Teresa Bock/
Coldwell Banker Highlands
Properties, Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center;
Cindy's Gifts & Engraving.
Highlands Independent Bank,
Morris Funeral Chapel, Puck-
orius Associates Inc., Wild
Turkey Tavern, Dale and Lori,
Grubb, Heacock Insurance
Group, Xi Nu Sigma Chapter
of Beta Sigma Phi, Glades
Electric Cooperative, Donna
Lyles, Anissa Jones, Reflec-
tions on Silver Lake, Bill
Jarrett Ford Mercury, Mike and
Tracy Fitch and King
Equipment Company.
The Highlands County
Emergency 'Medical Services
crew was on standby and
unfortunately put to good use
the day of the tourney. I am
glad we had these professionals
on hand even though it was for
minor cuts and heat exhaustion.
Bible Fellowship Church in
Sebring allowed us to use their
table and chairs for the awards
ceremony and Jaime Bust-
amante was kind enough to
coordinate that effort. It was
really great to work with anoth-
er non-profit organization
when the Highlands County
Family YMCA allowed us to
use its basketball courts for the
awards ceremony.
The city of Sebring allowed
us to use the fields and
Highlands Softball Inc. put up
some awesome blue tarps over
the dugouts just so the athletes
would have some shade. It
helped a lot. Todd Creech, of


Sebring, and his volunteers
made sure they were installed.
The umpires Karen Bolin.
Jeanette Phipps and Leslie
Behm donated their time to
help officiate the tourney. Mary
Manning and Bonnie Gagnon
kept score on all the games.
The Cracker Trail 4-H Club
came out to serve .lunch, which
was sponsored by Quiznos,
Subway and ,Albertson's.
Bernice Barnhill and Angela
Ruckman, both of Sebring, also
helped. I can't thank Cindy
Vickers, of Sebring, enough for
helping line up the lunch items.
Her neighbor, Helen Horigan,
.also was a big help.
Ross Vickers, of Sebring,
and Ralph Meyers, of Sebring,
assisted in loading and unload-
ing all the supplies.
Ridge Area Arc allowed us
to use its facility Friday night
before to host a dance and din-
ner to welcome the players
from' Fort Lauderdale' who
played in the tourney.
Domino's and R.J. Gator's
assisted with the food. Arc staff
member Maria Rivera and her
Family were a big help at the
,party. Art Bostick, of Avon
Park, provided the music at no
charge. Arc's Screening
Printing' department also did a
marvelous job in printing up all
the team's T-shirts.
Without all of these people,
the tournament could not have
been possible. I am just so glad
there are people in our commu-
nity-who give of themselves to
help others who are less fortu-'
nate. From the bottom of my
heart, I thank you all.

Broward rallies

past slumping

SFCC Panthers
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK There have been
moments this season when the Panthers
have felt as though they were "playing"
baseball, enjoying themselves and their
success. Then there have been moments
when they've been reminded of what a
cruel game this can be.
String enough of those moments
together and you have a slump, which is
exactly what SFCC found itself mired in
Friday night.
Mistakes, inadequate offense and
Broward misfortune have plagued
Ia the Panthers for 12 of their
last 14 conference games'
and all three played a part
SFCC in Friday night's 10-7 loss
to the Broward Seahawks.
At first glance, seven
runs seemed to be ample
run production for a Panthers squad that
has struggled at the plate recently.
Scoring in the first, second and fifth
innings, South Florida carried a 7-3 lead
into the seventh, but the Panthers could-
n't avoid the big inning.
The Panthers had a productive night
from leadoff man Dwayne Bailey, who
finished with two RBIs and two .runs
scored, starting off the bottom of the
first with a single to left.
Moving to third on groundouts from
Billy Dobson and Vince Grasso, Nick
Stanley drove Bailey in with the first run
with an RBI single to right-center.
With the score knotted at one in the
second, Dale Slimmick roped a single to

Almost a miracle


Avon Park turns away last-inning Sebring rally


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Thicic was no
way the Blue" Streaks were
going to go down without a
fight. Not against Avon Park.
Trailing 6-0 and seemingly
flat as a pancake heading into
the final inning, Sebring finally
got some life when Avon Park
starter Johnny Sedlock finally
ran out of gas, mounting a furi-
ous comeback.
But in the end, it was the
Streaks' rally that ran out of gas
one run short of a miracle as the
Red Devils escaped with a 6-5
win in a key District 10-4A
matchup at Firemen's Field.
"My hair's getting gray and
they just want to make it get
grayer," Avon Park coach Mort
Jackson said,, pointing to the
Sebring dugout. "When it
comes to it.,i Lait out, you just
never know and you never take
it for granted and tonight was a
perfect example."
Avon Park Sedlock had
surrendered just
two hits and
Sebring struck out nine
through the first
six innings, but
had begun to
struggle with his control after
retiring the first 11 batters in a
row. Still, Sebring could do
nothing with their opportuni-
ties, leaving the bases loaded in
the fourth and two runners on in
each of the next two innings.
The seventh, however, was a
different story.
Singles by Nick Maloyed and
Blake Sanders and Colt
Williams getting hit by a pitch
loaded the bases and Chris
Welborn walked in Sebring's
first run of the game and chased
Sedlock from the mound, bring-
ing on Chance Hunter in relief.
An infield single by Tony
Vazquez, J.C. Shoop's sacrifice
fly and Adam Simmons' two-
run double brought the Streaks
to within 6-5 with Simmons on
third, but Hunter escaped the.
jam with a strikeout to end the
game.
"Johnny got tired and got

above his pitch count," Jackson
said. "He didn't want to come
out, but his arm and his career
ahead of him is more important
than one game.
"That's what we practiced
(Hunter) for all year. That's a
junior who hasn't pitched a
whole lot and had never pitched
on the varsity level until this
year and I'm proud of him. He
did a nice job."
Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
said his team's listless first six
innings could be attributed to
Sedlock.
"He can make you look flat
when he's-having a good night
and he had a great night,"
Rewis said. "We had to get him
tired and it just took us too long
to get him tired. It was nice to


-see the kids work to come back.
We did what we had to do, we
just came up a run short."
The Devils had built their big
lead against Sebring starter
Chaz Abeln on the back of a
third inning that featured four
unearned runs after Sedlock's
fly ball to center with two outs
was dropped to let two runs
score .and Taiwan Perry fol-
lowed one batter later with a
two-run double off the left-field


wall.
Perry added a sacrifice fly in
the top of the fifth and Garrett
Duke's run-scoring fielder's
choice in the sixth put the
Devils up by six.
"He's just a great athlete,"'
Jackson said of Perry, the
Devils' leading hitter last sea-
son. "He's getting in his groove.
He as absolutely worn it out this
week, he's 7-for-10 or 7-for-1l
this week."


Just another

screwba1sl

observations
For most people, base-
ball doesn't effect everyday
decisions the way it does in
my life. It's probably just
as well.
I've been known to plan
vacations, invent supersti-
tions and de-prioritize my
responsibilities based
exclusively on the Major
League schedule. Add local
baseball and a vocational
duty to write about it daily,
and you have one con-
sumed individual.
That's why I enjoy the
time I spend in the SFCC
press box so much.
Surrounded by other enthu-
siasts and the beauty of the
game, it's a chance to steep
myself in the wise baseball
musings of Panthers' P.A.
announcer Hal "Golden

Graves
and the
official
score-
keeper of
the club,
Don
Thomas.
For my JOCK
contem- TALES
poraries
and I, it's Marcus
an ad- Wilkins
vanced
course in
baseball lore and lingo. Hal
and Don's first-hand
accounts of baseball's leg-
ends, as well as tactical and
strategic lessons involving
the game at hand, are
always enlightening.
Occasionally, when
Highland's Today sports-
writer Kevin Carlson and I
aren't racing to blurt out
the answer to Mr. Graves
nightly trivia, the sage is
kind enough to offer story
ideas.
"Baseball jargon," he
said recently, "is used in
daily conversation ... even
by people who don't know
and appreciate the game."
The press box conversa-
tion spark quickly turned
into a brainstorm.

Could the bobwhite quail one


day become just a memory?


Courtesy photo
Amy Birkemeier (seated) of Columbus Grove, Ohio, recently signed to play volleyball for the South
Florida Community College Lady Panthers. Birkemeier was a first team All-District and honorable
mention All-State selection in high school. Witnessing the signing were (standing, from left) Elliot
Baume, Birkemeier's College Prospects of America representative, parents Marilyn and Mike
Birkemeier and Columbus Grove coach Jody Benda.


WILKINS
Continued from 1E
We started with the obvious, laughing about
the classic date-status indicator.
"Did you get to first base?"
"Naw, I struck out."
Hal had really thrown us a curveball. We
expanded our horizons.
. The term "rain check" applies to rained out
baseball games and it even says so on most Major
League ticket stubs.
In business situations, jargon abounds. How
many times have you "touched base" with an
associate or employer, or given someone a "ball-
park figure?" .
If a situation is completely different, it's "a
whole new ball game," and if you need to pay
attention to several details, you'd better "cover
all the bases."


RALLIES
Continued from 1E
right followed by a Charles
Heston walk that set up Bailey's
two-run double.
Broward tied it again in 'the
fourth after pulling off a double
steal. With Sergio Morales' at
third and Rian Kinnery at first,
Kinnery broke for second start-
ing a run-down that distracted
the Panthers enough for
Morales to score. Indecision by
the Panthers second baseman
allowed Kinnery to slide safely
into second.
Things looked good for
South Florida after the fifth,
when they poured on four runs
by way of two identical RBI
doubles. With Rico Jackson on
third, Bailey on second and
Grasso on first, Stanley banked
a double off the wall in right-
center to drive in two.
After a pitching change, Nick
Polston found himself in the
same situation. With two run-
ners in scoring position, Polston
deposited one in the same spot,
giving the Panthers a seemingly
commanding 7-3 lead.
SFCC looked to Matt
Monnier for relief in the sev-
enth, who has shut down the
Seahawks in the past. Broward
clearly had him figured out by
Friday night with RBIs from
Danny Jordan and Sergio
Morales adding to two Panther


If you need someone's cooperation, see if you
can get them to "play ball."
When you get everything in a series of items
right, you're "batting a thousand," but if you real-
ly screw up, you've "dropped the ball."
Everyone has dealt with people who are tough
or aggressive in a particular situation. They were
playing "hardball."
Yogi Berra has authored-a litany of quotable
quotes in his time, like "it ain't over 'til it's over"
and "always go to other people's funerals, other-
wise they won't come to yours." Yogi-isms. don't
count, though. They're funny, but they don't
qualify as jargon.
Hal's idea really came out of left field.
I thought it would be hard to turn into an entire
column, but since I'm in the big leagues, I figured
I'd better step up to the plate.

Marcus Wilkins is a sports writer for the News-Sun.


More than a century ago, my
grandfather bought a piece of
rough land and carved out a
successful small farm in south-
western Indiana. It was on that
beautiful small farm with its
rolling hills that I gained an
early knowledge of the out-
doors by searching and explor-
ing every nook and cranny of
the cornfields, briar patches
and the shady hillsides of the
big, hardwood forest.
I learned where every fox
den and groundhog burrow
was, along with the location of
each hollow beech tree that
harbored a raccoon family.
There were dens all along the
banks of the stream that flowed
through the farm. These were
muskrat homes and occasional-
ly, a family of minks would
take abode in one of their
deserted dens.
During the spring and sum-
mer, bobwhite quail would nest
in the hayfield. Sometimes
while playing in the field I
would find a quail nest with
the top destroyed by the old
horse-drawn mowing machine
and the un-hatched clutch of
eggs laying exposed to the sun.
I once tried to salvage the eggs
by placing them under an old
setting hen in grandma's chick-
en house. It was not successful
because the eggs were so small
that the hen broke them when
she moved around and stepped
on them.
My grandfather took good
care of his farm and he was
good to the wildlife that lived
there. When I grew older, I
hunted on the farm for rabbits
and quail. Back then, quail
were plentiful and their famil-
iar*calls reverberated across the
fields on hot summerdays. My
grandparents are now gone and

OUTDOORS

Lloyd Jones

a niece owns and tends the
farm.
The wildlife is not what it
was years ago. Oh, rabbits,
groundhogs and squirrels are
still around, but no bobwhite
quail calls can be heard across
the fields. The quail are gone
and no one knows why. It
seems strange at a time when
wild turkeys and whitetail deer
are thriving in ever-increasing
numbers that the bobwhite
quail would disappear from the
lands where it flourished for
ages.
The fields are much cleaner
now than back then. There
isn't much in the way of briar
patches or thickets and I don't
think that bodes well for the
bobwhite. The folks down on
the farm say it has been quite a
while since they have heard a
bob\\ hire call.
In researching what seemed.
to me might be a wider prob-
lem, I found other places
where quail numbers have
been declining for years. It
seems to be a widespread prob-
lem all the \iv, from the
Midwest to the Southeast. In
the traditional southeastern
quail hunting area, the bob-
white population has been
declining since the mid 1960s.


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service says the nation's bob-
white numbers have dropped
66 percent in the southeastern
states in just the last 20 years.
On the most extreme fringe of
their range parts of Kansas,
Oklahoma and Texas have
their numbers been stable.
The national habitat coordi-
nator for Quail Unlimited says
the real issue is habitat.
"The planting of pastures
with fescue has been very
detrimental to quail in our
region," said Roger Wells, a
Kansas native. He says the loss
of adequate nesting and brood-
rearing habitat for quail
throughout their range is due to
land use change.
Bobwhite chicks need idle,
weedy areas with abundant
shrubs and forbs. These kind of
lands thrive where land is reg-
ularly cleared by fire or other
disturbances and then allowed
to re-vegetate. These areas
brim with insects, which make
up alinost all of the quail
chick's diet. In the past 40
years, this type of habitat has
'been lost to clean farming
methods, urban sprawl and for-
est maturation.
You also have to wonder
what part herbicides and pesti-
cides have played in the
decline of the quail.
Bobwhite quail need hands-
on management and lands suit-
able for their survival. It is
unthinkable that the bobwhite
could disappear from our land
forever, but if those charged
with the welfare of wildlife
don't soon get a hold on the
habitat problem, the bobwhite
may be just a memory.

Broward's Sergio Morales gets caught in a rundown between SFCC
pitcher Jordan Roberts (20) and shortstop Dwayne Bailey in the sec-
ond inning of Friday's game.


infield errors as Broward tied
the game.
Batting around, the
Seahawks punctuated their
offensive outburst with a Danny
Lima three-run homer that put
them on top for good.
A grim South Florida head


coach Rick Hitt had little to say
after the loss.
"We gave them some extra
outs in the. big inning against
the number one team in the con-
ference," he said.
"You ,can't give up the big
inning in a tight game."
