Summit:



Preparing



for a flu



pandemic

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING With 30 presentations
reaching at least 900 people behind her,
Highlands County Health Department
Director Dr. Paula Thaqi is trying to further
faise awareness about a potential influenza
pandemic.
For about two hours starting at 6 p.m.
Wednesday, the health department is.holding
a "Pandemic Influenza Summit" at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic Center on
George Boulevard, south of Sebring.
"Basic preparedness is basic prepared-
ness," Thaqi said, explaining that the summit
will address avian influenza or "bird flu," but
its methods can be tailored for other situa-
tions such as hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes
or other "hazards."
The idea of a pandemic which Thaqi
described as "multiple and multiple flu epi-
demics" the world over that passes, easily
among people for whom there is no known
vaccine or immunity is a new concept for
many Americans, who can't conceptualize
the consequences, she said.
"It's a global issue but it has effects on
local communities and families," Thaqi said.
"People might think it's too overwhelming to.
prepare for or it might not happen here."
It's this apparent lack of knowledge that
Thaqi hopes to address at the summit and in
other public presentations, which are just
one part of preparing for what may come.,
Working with law enforcement at the
county .ind municipal le els. the Emergency
Operations Center, businesses volunteer'
groups, hospitals and a variety of organiza-
tions, Thaqi said her office is moving toward
an annex to the Highlands County compre-
hensive management plan as a "Health and
Medical Standard Operating Procedure."
Though nobody can predict when or to
what extent an avian flu pandemic would
strike, Thaqi suggests that history "tells us"
it's inevitable.
"This makes a worst case seem like the
only case," Dr. Marc Siegel said in his book
"Bird Flu: Everything You Need to Know

The pre-dawn quiet was interrupted by the sound of
e\,clianged gunfire between Moody and an Avon Park
police officer as the department responded to a call at 4:35

"We received a call stating that a car in the driveway of

right across the street from Moody's home 407 W. State

As they approached Moody, who was sitting inside the


car, he allegedly discharged a weapon, prompting return
fire.
The Avon Park Police Department, called in the
Highlands County. Sheriff's Office and its Crisis

and it is not known at this time whether any charges will be
filed. Moody was transported to the Medical Examiner's
Office in Polk County where the cause of death will be
determined.

said that the reason it took so long to approach the vehicle
was because they take precautions in case Moody had been

Domestic abuse, tenant laws


covered in Law Day seminars


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Since the last
two hurricane seasons, legal
concerns in Highlands County
have changed.
Two of those concerns,
domestic violence and land-
lord-tenant lawg, will get
addressed at the annual Law
Week seminars April 24-25.
The Highlands County Bat
Association and Justice Parker
Lee McDonald Law Library -
a county public library spon-
sor the seminars as free and
open to all.
Nancy Thomas, law librari-
an, said since the last two hurri-
cane seasons, rental law has
been one of the most requested
searches. Also, domestic vio-
lence seems to be a major issue
since the hurricanes.
It is also the major topic of
essays submitted for the Janette
Branham memorial scholarship.
Domestic violence
According to the Department
of Children and Families,
domestic violence is a pattern
of behavior adults or adoles-
cents use against current or for-
mer intimate partners to estab-
lish power and control.
It may include physical, sex-
ual, emotional and economic
abuse with such tools as using
children in threats, isolation,
pet abuse, or other behaviors to
maintain fear, intimidation and
power over another.
Child abuse, also prevalent,
can occur in families along with
domestic violence. DCF cites
research indicating that when
children merely see domestic
violence, it can increase aggres-
sion, depression and anxiety;
damage social skills; and hurt
academic ability.
It can also increase the
chances a child will either per-
petrate or be the victim of such
violence as an adult.
Landlord/tenant
Renters face a new set of dif-
ficulties after natural disaster
- strikes..
For example, the Department
of Agriculture and' Consumer
Services states a landlord might
refuse to renew a lease, termi-
nate month-to-month rentals or-
raise rent.
Renters can seek a court
decision on such matters.
Tenants unable to pay full
rent because of financial diffi-

County Clerk's Office, and Attorney Richard Pipkin will teach a

Florida Landlord Tenant laws on Tuesday, April 25.


culties from a natural disaster
'should talk with the landlord
and reach a solution. They
should never wait until rent is
past due.
If tihe property is damaged or
destroyed and unlivable
because of a disaster, renters
may move out and stop paying
rent, according to Consumer
Services.
If only part is unlivable, they
can pay for only the part that is
usable, Consumer Services
states. In either case, renters
must give a written notice to the
landlord first, either hand-deliv-
ered .or by certified mail,
describing the damage and
explaining the reason for pay-
ing less rent or for leaving.
Renters should take pictures

aged the home.
The renter also should
include an address to send the
deposit. The landlord must
return the deposit, plus interest
if applicable, within 15 days of
the end of the lease.
If the landlord is keeping any
part of the deposit, Consumer
Services said he or she must


justify that in writing within 30
.days by certified mail to the
tenant's most recent mailing
address.
If a notice is not sent as
required \,i hin the 30-dai\ penr-.
od, the landlord lorleits the
right to place a claim upon the
deposit unless the renter has
failed. to give notice prior to
vacating.
If the renter objects to the
claim, he or she may take the
matter to small claims court.
Renters should keep a copy
of any notice they give to the
landlord in addition to any
notices received.

Newsom Eye and Laser Center



helps Girl Scouts earn badge


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING A trip to the
eye doctor is generally nothing
to get excited about; but for
Junior Brownie Troop 767, a
visit to Newsom Eye and Laser
Center Monday was a real eye-
opener.
Cindy, Gilbert, troop leader,
took her first- through fifth-
grade girls to the center for an
educational tour and presenta-
tion. The experience brought
them one step closer t6 their
goal of earning "Looking Our
Best" badges.
Dr. Jane Bucci, a new
optometrist at the center, with
the assistance of Merideth Pace,
ophthalmic technician, took the
girls through the facility, show-
ing them diagnostic instruments
used in the practice, and teach-
ing .the children about their
eyes, how they work, and their
vision.
"Dr. 'Bucci was wonderful,"
Gilbert said. "She showed them
how an eye exam is done, the
different parts of the eye, let
them look through a few of the
lenses lots of cool stuff."
Gilbert was very impressed
with the way that Bucci
engaged the children. "She was
very nice. The kids really liked
her," she said. "She smiled a lot
and the girls connected with her
right away. They were made to
feel comfortable and opened
up, asking a lot of questions."
Sarah Bilbrey, first-grade
Brownie, attended the field trip
along with her mother, Honey
Lawrence. "We really had a

liked the 3-D book thing."
Lawrence said, referring to a
tool used to determine whether
or not both eyes are working
correctly. "It wasn't some bor-
ing, sit-and-listen presenta-
tion," she said. "It was very
hands-on, very interactive."
Though the scouts thorough-
ly enjoyed the whole experi-
ence, the big bonus came in the


form of cupcakes, fruit, cheese
and crackers, and other snacks.
"They really went all out,"
Gilbert said. I
Bucci said that the experi-
ence was a pleasure. "The girls
were very inquisitive and had a
lot of good questions," she said.
"It was good for me to have the
'opportunity to share my knowl-
edge with them, and for them to
learn."

Reportedly, the county can't
put speed bumps on the road, at

county would get sued.
At one point, Ballas said, the

SEBRING Hospitals must
make sure new parents have car
seats for the infants before tak-
ing them home from a hospital.
Parents don't necessarily
have to know how to install the
seat however. That concerns
Millie Martin with Highlands
County Healthy Start.
Robyn McIntyre,
Community Traffic Safety
Team coordinator, recently
attended a Lifesaver's
Conference in Austin, Texas.
An attorney there said some
hospitals have worked around
liability issues by having new
parents attend a training session
on how to install a seat.
"That wouldn't work for
me," Martin said at
Wednesday's meeting. "I want
to know you know how to do

ELAINE SEDLOCK/News-Sun
Avon Park Police Marksman Sgt. Jason Lister keeps his sights on
the car in which Myron Ellis Moody Jr. sat. Moody had allegedly
fired at Avon Park police officers who responded following a report
stating that Moody was breaking into a car at 4:35 a.m. Friday.

"playing possum" lying still
to draw the officers in closer.
"When the shields were up
we didn't know whether his
lack of response was really
because he was deceased," he
said.
Johnson was the only officer
available for comment prior to
press, and was very limited in
what he could say. It is still
undetermined if Moody died
from a self-inflicted gun shot
wound or from a bullet fired by
the police. There were three
bullet holes in the back portion
of the Kia on the passenger's


PANDEMIC

About the Next Pandemic."
"The way this information has
been communicated in the
media and via several of our
public health officials carries
the message that something
major is in the offing."
According to Siegel, viruses
are "just a sack of genetic mate-
rial enclosed by a protein enve-
lope" and come in two types -
DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid)
and RNA ribonucleicc acid).,
The latter is influenza and
comes in three varieties--A; B
a n d C . : -
Siegel said the C strain rarely
causes illness and the B version
"circulates widely only among
humans and- generally do not
make us as. sick as influenza A
does."
Influenza A viruses are found
in ducks, chickens, pigs,
whales, horses, seals and many
other animals.
The flu is spread by airborne
droplets and incubates from one
to four days in the respiratory
tract before a person has symp-
toms.
"The current bird flu (H5N1)'
is diagnosed by testing the
blood for. antibodies to the
H5N1 strain," Siegel wrote in
his book, an excerpt of which
can be found at www.NPR.org.
"The test is 100 percent accu-
rate, though it doesn't tell how
sick a bird (or person) is.
Transmission from bird to
human is possible but rare ...
and it has existed in birds for
many thousands of years."
Despite frequent mutations,
which changes its genetics and
thus its resistance to vaccines,
Siegel argues that the bird flu
"rarely goes through the
changes that allow it to routine-
ly infect mammals."
Siegel suggests that humans
are protected by what he calls a
species barrier.
"This form of H5N1 appears

them succeed in their first
triathlons.
"If (Eric or Patrick) hear that
a group of people are going out
to ride their bikes, well they'll
get on their e-mail and pass that
information along," Starr said,
explaining the support role of
the group and the spontaneous
training opportunities.
"They're going to need to learn
how to balance that flow of
swimming, biking and running
training and not over train."
Short of registering for the
race, participants have no obli-
gations to the fitness center
afterward.
However, should these new
athletes decide they want to
continue racing toward better
health, Starr said she'll waive
the $50 sign-up fee for gym
membership.


"There is an active investiga-
tion and all news releases and
information are being directed
to the Avon Park Police
Department," he said.
Due to the Easter weekend,
government offices were
closed, which will delay further
information until Tuesday when
another press release is expect-
ed from Mercurio.
According to records
obtained from the Highlands
County Clerk of the Courts,
Moody had never been in trou-
ble until recently when he was
charged with battery domestic
violence on March 2, 2006, to
which, he entered a plea of not
guilty.

Pandemic Influenza Summit

6 p.m. Wednesday
Highlands County Agri-Civic Center, 4509 George
Blvd/, Sebring.
Refreshments will be served.
The summit is being held to inform the Highlands
County community about what to expect, what to do, and
how to prepare should a flu pandemic occur.


to have been around since the
1950s," Siegel said. "And in the
eight years that it has infected
millions of birds (1997-2005),
documented human cases have
been rare."
He cites 150 clinical infec-
tions with 70 deaths: as 6of- the
book's January 2006. publica-
tion.
"In the wake of (Sept. 11,
2001) our leaders have been
playing chicken little," Siegel
said, pointing to past concerns
about anthrax,. West Nile,
smallpox, and SARS. "In. each
case we were warned that. we
had no immunity and could be
at great risk. In each case there
was no accountability going
forward, no 'We're sorry, we
got this one wrong but we just
wanted to prepare you just in
case.'"
Thaqi. said past flu pan-
demics resulted in more than
600,000 deaths in 1918, about
75,000 in 1957 and 1958, and
34,000 in 1968.
From 1990 to 1999, the
Center for Disease Control said
seasonal flu viruses were'
responsible for an annual aver-
age of 36,000 American deaths.
She said "best guesses" of
the CDC and the World Health
Organization estimate a 2.5-
percent death rate among those
infected in the next pandemic.
"We want to emphasize to


people to get their flu shot
every year," Thaqi said.
In addition to Thaqi and her
slide show presentations,
speakers will include Bill
Nichols, emergency manage-
ment director; Dr. John Crews,
of -. -the --.-Depar-tment--.oi
Agriculture and Consumer
Services; and Kevin Roberts,
Highlands County human serv-,
ices director.
The summit will address
potential consequences and
ways to prepare for an influen-
za pandemic or other catastro-
phes.
"That preparedness is never
wasted," Thaqi said.

the most," Seymour- said,
explaining that her core. group
is 20-25 people and are nmosd\
;"snow birds." "But *we. allow
our volunteers to. help where
they're most comfortable."
From cooking, to mopping,
those who volunteer their time
will find that it takes a lot of
manpower to keep the center --
which houses up to 20 boys and
girls from six to 12 years of age
operating.
"I think it's very important

for, I call them transplanted
grandparents, to get a chance to
grandparent," said Barbara
Black, a volunteer who was at
the center on Thursday helping
Seymour to organize and pack
the welcome kits.
Most volunteers want to
spend time with the children, a
good thing Seymour said, but
often they're asked to help with
more mundane tasks.
"There's a lot of demand on
the .staff," Seymour said,
explaining that the paid
employees have paperwork and
other adininislialije job that
could be handled by a volun-
teer. "I would like to see (the
staff) spend more time with the
kids than on menial things. The
staff become their interim fami-
ly. ... The more time they can
spend with them, the better a
rapport they can build."
Donna, Doubleday came on
board as director in January and
she praised the work of
Se6ymour and the other volun-
teers:
'The volunteers here are
essential to our existence,"
director Donna Doubleday said.
To become a volunteer, call
the center at 382-0007 or call


Seymour at 314-0223.
In addition to filling out an
application, prospective helpers
are asked to submit to a back-
ground check and to be finger-
printed.
Other than that, Seymour
said, there are not other require-
ments such as education or min-
imum time commitments.
"A big heart," Black said,
adding one more requisite for
the work she loves.
In addition to more volun-
teers, whom Seymour said she
continually needs, she's solicit-
ing area business to help with
summer activity programs by
providing funding, facilitating
outings, or donating coupons'
and other goods or services.
Though the children stay at
the shelter for a relatively short
time,, the center needs to fill
nine 'weeks, between school
semesters.
Seymour is sending letters
out but is open to new ideas.
'In addition to a "Gross Party"
because "kids like gross things"
she envisions a day on a farm,'
Starts and crafts, camping, hiking,
boating, horseback riding, golf-
ing or anything that might
enrich the children's lives and
hold the boredom at bay.

Paperwork keeps crowd buying


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Sale day is just
the tip of the auction iceberg. It
takes weeks of work with a
large crew to be ready for the
auctioneer.
"You don't have a good sale
without a good crew," John
Martz said.
Martz owns, operates and is
the voice of Insight Auction,
5000 State Road 66.
"It takes weeks to put (an
auction) together, culminating
in a one day sale,'; he said.
"Fourteen or 15 days of
advance work on an item that's
sold in 60 seconds.
"The clock is always ticking,
because we have to be ready,
and we can be overwhelmed
with truckloads of consign-
ments delivered at the last
minute."
Martz and his crew hold an
auction every other month. He
specializes in farm and heavy
construction equipment, but
will sell nearly anything,
although furniture and house-
hold items generally aren't
worth the bother.
Insight Auction handles,a lot
of government surplus. The
School Board of Highlands
County and the sheriff's office
routinely dispose of items
they've either replaced or worn
out.
"Everything has its own little
niche," Martz said.
For example, Crown Victoria
-Fords used by many police
departments as cruisers are,
extremely popular in Central
and South America for use as
taxis. Dealers come uip from
Miami to bid on them.
Whatever the item, every-


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
As the auction got and heavy, more ring men are brought into pla3. Isaac Martz, younger son of Insight
Auction's owner, in a plaid shirt standing behind the jet ski, points to the latest bidder. The two gentle-
men in white cowboy hats are keeping track of bidders along the sides, and encouraging them to stay in
the competition. One bidder, a cell phone held to his ear, is bidding for someone long distance.


thing has to catalogued and
numbered. Then each item has
to be cleaned or prepped for the
auction, and put into place.
Insight Auction organizes its
sale by category not number.
This means, for example, all the
tractors are together, all the pal-
lets of engine parts, all the auto-
mobiles, etc.
This makes life much easier
for prospective buyers, but
means extra work for the auc-
tion's crew.
That's because every sale is
recorded by hand as it happens.
The item number, the buyer's
number' and the. winning bid
are recorded by Linda Doyle,,


Martz's sister as she stands at
the scene. Because items are
listed numerically but sold by,
category, Doyle has to flip
through dozens of pages to find
the correct place something
which is difficult to do because
the auction's .pace is so quick.
She has to be dead-on accurate
each time.
That's because sale results
also are recorded separately and
in real time on computer, so that
by the time the buyer arrives at
the' pay window, the clerk
already knows what the buyer,
has to pay.
But, 1 he bLur 'disagrees
'ith that figure, something that


only happens rarely Martz said,
the amount recorded by Doyle
by hand on the spot, is the fig-
ure which settles the issue.
The recording of sale results
is only part of the paperwork.
Every titled vehicle requires
close attention. -A jacket a
large envelope made of manila
stock is created for each one
on sale. It contains all the nec-
essary information: The vehicle
identification number, ,mileage,
color, year, make and model.
The seller must sign the vehi-
cle's title, which is put in the
I.-icl.ci ifhr ,ltilion house-then
theoretically owns the %chicle


When the vehicle is sold the
title is transferred to the new
owner. If it doesn't sell, the title
is returned to the want-to-be
seller. No titles change hands on
sale day, however, that is done
later.
Taxes add to the paperwork.
"We collect a lot of the one
cent tax," Martz said. That's the
one cent ad valorem sales tax
which goes to. Highlands
County.
The tax follows the item. In
other words, a tax owed on a
vehicle follows the vehicle and
not the person who owned it.
This can hurt the county. not
just the new owner. For exam-
ple, if someone buys a bulldoz-
er and takes it to Polk County,
Highlands County would be out
of the tax it was due because
one county can't collect its tax
in another county.
"The amount of tax we col-
lect from a year of sales could
pay Carl Cool's salary," I r, I
said, referring to the county
manager.
All of this paperwork and
preparation means Insight
Auction has a large staff, most-
ly family. But the vast majority
of them only work part-time
and hold other jobs.
Martz's sons, Shawn and
Isaac, are auctioneers in their
own right, and his wife Barbara
oversees much of the mountain
of paperwork.
Insight Auction does a lot of
charity auctions every year,
'Martz said, including for the
March Of Dimes and the Wild
Turkey Federation.
The next Insight Auction will
be Saturday, May 20.

Grab it and go at




J & A Drive Thru


This is the sound topper. The auctioneer and a clerk sit inside. The topper is towed slowly down the
rows, stopping at a sale item,where the auctioneer uses the sound system to call out the auction. The
clerk sits at a computer with a sophisticated software program that makes it possible to record sales in
real time.

Continued from 13A
and collected as he popped
Hall's throat lozenges and
called out the bidding.,
Once we got going there
was no time to talk. Auctions
go very quickly. At one point
Martz left the sound topper and
joined his crew in the crowd.
Together they auctioned off
800 pieces of merchandise in
about eight hours.
It took concentration, team-
work, and weeks of prepara-
tion.
Ring men,' people who help
the auctioneer by keeping track
of the various bidders and
often help spur on the action
by using body language and
encouraging the bidders, work
inside the crowd. On this day
there at least 300 people
attending the auction.
The number of ring men
working at an item's auction
depended on the number of
people bidding. The liveliest
action needed three ring men.
I never did find a way of
tracking the action, and some-
6iimieO the auction was over
before I'd even figured out
'what people were bidding on
I noticed some people bid-,
ding on more than one item.
Martz explained there are peo-
ple who bid for a living, called
jockeys, they are hired by peo-
ple who can't be there in per-
son.
It turns out there is plenty of
suspense at an auction.
Bidding on any single item can
become quite intense, often

Heacock Insurance Group of

AVON PARK Jeni's on

into. a new book that is being

The author/publisher is

them what excited them about

prices.


unexpectedly.
For example, there was "a
tractor you wouldn't have
thought was good enough to
haul to the dumpster, but two
salvage guys bid it up to
$2,500," Martz said. The win-
ner took a screwdriver and
removed the vehicle identifica-
tion number plate, which was
all that he wanted. It turned out
the tractor, although beyond
usefulness, was a rare model
and the man had restored one
just like it, but it didn't have a
VIN plate. This was the only
way he could get one.,
Then there are the pieces
that draw more than ever
expected..
Martz told of a construction
crane, the most interesting
piece he's ever sold. Research
told him it was worth between )
$40,000 and $45,000. It was an
absolute sell, no matter what,
and he put a $50,000 reserve
on it.
That means he had to sell it,
but only if it made at least
$50,000. Otherwise he'd have
to buy it.
Right away he panicked, and
began to.plan a selling strategy
- let people bid for a bii. then
pause, and put [h ci.iie ,
through its paces t. entice
more interest.
But he didn't need to worry.
The opening bid was for
,$35,000, and in less than 35
seconds they were over the
reserve.
When the price got to
$70,000, it became a two man
bidding duel, with the winner
buying the crane for $86,000.
Martz laughed as he report-

around and sold the crane to
someone else for $115,000.
But as intense as the bidding
is, it's the auctioneer's show-
manship that creates the drama.
Martz, who had been in con-
struction before following his
dream seven years ago,
explained how auctioneers
have to go to school. Most of
what they learn is about laws
and regulations, tax structures
and.paperwork. But the fun
part is learning how to talk as
fast as they do, and with that
tell tale cadence.
Martz attended the Missouri
Auction School, considered the
best of its kind in the country.
"You're in tall cotton, if you
go to that school," Martz said.
Students have to count by
fives forward and backwards,
and repeat many different
tongue twisters as fast as they
can.
The main tongue twister he
mastered, was this: Betty
bought her some butter, but she
said this butter's bitter, if I put
it in my batter, it will make my
batter bitter so she bought a
bit ofbetter'butter, put it in her
bitlii bciter, and made,her bit-
ter batter better.
If you can say that fast three
times in a row, you might think
about becoming an auctioneer.

Christopher Tuffley will be
fattening up some alligators on
a farm next week. Any business
that would like to be featured
in Tuffin'It With Tuffley, can

SEBRING If you're in a
hurry and don't have time to
even get out of your car for a
few items,., the new J & A Drive
Thru is ready to serve.
Owners Joseph and Alisha
Bullington moved to Sebring
from Okeechobee two years
ago. While her husband is busy
selling policies for Highlands
County with Farm Bureau
Insurance, Alisha Buliington
said, "There were about five or
six of these 'drive thru coolers'
in Okeechobee, and I missed it.
I needed one here."
With two children aged 3
years old and 2 months,
Bullington felt this would be
great for other mothers like her-
self. Because it is often a hassle
to get what you need and just
go, this solves a lot of the time
constraints people confront
daily.
J & A Drive Thru is a 40-foot
by 60-foot metal building.
When a person drives through,
everything is visible on both
sides. There are coolers and
racks displaying items, and usu-
ally three workers each shift to
grab any item requested, so
people don't even have to get
out of their car.
J & A has fresh-brewed sweet
tea, beer, slushy drinks, Pepsi,
Coke and a variety of fountain
drinks on tap, juice, Starbucks
Frappicino, energy drinks and
water. There are not only ciga-
rettes and chewing tobacco, but
chips, jerky, pickles, sausages
and pickled eggs. It offers ice
cream, candy and boiled
peanuts (Cajun and regular).
Hot and cold sandwiches such
as ham and cheese, cheeseburg-
er, egg, tuna or chicken salad,
Cuban, Philly cheese steak and
burritos are available.
In addition it has doughnuts,
. eggs,' cheese, butter, sliced'
bread or buns and five-pound'

* More on Medicare Part D,
pages 23, 24A
By GAIL ENGESSER
Special to the News-Sun
On Jan. 1, 2006, the
Medicare Modernization Act
became effective. It provides
for prescription medication
insurance for people on
Medicare. Known as Medicare
Part D the program is intended
to help Medicare recipients
manage the high cost of pre-
scription medication. There are
minimum standards insurance
providers must meet in order to
be approved by Medicare.
All plans must have a value
at least as good as the basic
Medicare package and must
cover a minimum number of
medications. Plan benefits are
divided into stages based on
out-of-pocket expenses and
total cost of the medications.
Plans must have a formulary
available to the consumer.
These can be requested from
the provider. Many can be
found online at the plan Web
sites.
In Medicare Part D the
insured must pay a deductible
of $250 in 2006. After the
deductible is met the insured
pays 25 percent of the cost of
the medication. When the total
cost of medications purchased
is $2,250 the insured pays 100
percent of the.cost of the med-
ications until he or she has paid
a total of $3,600 out-of-pocket
on medications. At that point
the insured begins, catastrophic
coverage of 5 percent or $2 for
generic and $5 for brand med-
ications, whichever is higher.
While generic medications
are financially effective, only a
doctor can determine if they are
medically effective. Some
brand medications have
"Therapeutic Alternatives" that
may be brand or generic. These
may cost less that the pre-
scribed brand medication. A

Back-to-back AKC-licensed shows set for Zolfo Springs


Special to the News-Sun
ZOLFO SPRINGS Dog
show participants are canine
athletes. The participants never
complain about or negotiate
salaries. They never take per-
formance enhancing treats or
biscuits. They even love the
fans who jeer them.
There are few sports events
where the public can meet and
greet the athletes before and
after the big game. Conform-
ation dog shows are the only
sport events where the selection
of the winners always comes
down to the last second.
Dogs are champions when


they earn 15 points and win two
"majors," which translates into
beating a substantial number of
their own breed. The number
varies from breed to breed. The
title of "champion" can take
many months to earn.
There are 165 breeds and
varieties recognized by the
American Kennel Club that are
eligible to participate in differ-
ent types of licensed dog
shows. The Heartland Dog Club
Inc. of Florida (HDC) is hold-
ing back-to-back AKC-licensed
shows on Saturday and Sunday,
April 22 and 23, at Pioneer
Park, Zolfo Springs. The shows


feature conformation, obedi-
ence and rally events.
Rally, a new AKC dog sport
(since Jan. 1, 2005) is taking the
nation by storm. It is a success-
ful stepping-stone from the
AKC Canine Good Citizen pro-
gram to the world of obedience
or agility. Rally is fun and ener-
gizing for both the dogs and the
handlers. It is new to the HDC
shows this year.
A Rally course includes 10-
20 stations. Scoring is not as
rigorous as regular obedience.
Communication between the
handler and dog is encouraged
and "perfect" heel position is

not required, but there should
be teamwork between the dog
and handler. The main objective
of Rally is to produce dogs
trained to behave in the home,
public places and in the pres-
ence of other dogs.
AKC obedience trials
demonstrate the usefulness of
the purebred dog as a compan-
ion to man. Each dog competes
for a qualifying score that indi-
cates the dog has performed all
the required exercises correctly
for a particular class. The dog
must earn three qualifying
scores under three different
judges to earn the obedience
title for its level of competition.
Conformation has one dog in
each breed that is Best of Breed
each day. The owner, breeder, a
friend, or a professional handler
shows each dog. Any handler's
goal is to be invisible, moving
in such a way as to highlight the
dog's best attributes. Like
coaches, dog handlers may give
their dogs a pep talk before
entering the show ring. The
Best of Breed in each breed
competes in one of the seven
groups. The first place winner
in each group meets in the Best
in Show ring. Only one dog
emerges as the Best in Show for
that day.
Conformation dogs compete
against each breed's standard,
not each other. The national
club representing each breed
writes its breed's standard. The
dog, in the judge's opinion, that
best represents that breed, that
day, wins. Each standard varies
from breed to breed, depending
on the function the dog was
bred to perform, often includes,
but is not limited to: size; ihi,
the coat should look including
acceptable colors; the number
of teeth; the size and shape of
the head; and general tempera-
ment.

Knutson hits Pacific Crest Trail


Sun, rain, snow,

pain and

adventure await
By PHIL ATrINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING --. Thor Knutson,
of Sebring once described hik-
ing the entire length of the
Appalachian Trail as "starving
himself."
Hikers actually consume
twice as many calories as an
average active person to main-
tain body weight muscle tone,
and a steady pace.
In March, Knutson set a pace
for himself on a week-long, 87-'
mile training hike in Appala-
chia
Friday, he continued thai:
pace on the Pacific Cresi Traai:'
Mexico to Canada through
California, Oregon and
Washington state
He plans to finish by
October.
About 3,000 people, start the
Appalachian Trail each year.
Less than 10 percent finish,
however about 200-300 people,
total, hike the Pacific Crest
Trail.
Knutson took eight hours to
go 15 miles on the Appalachian
Trail. Fellow hikers told him
that's equivalent to 25 miles on'
the Pacific Crest Trail: It's not
as steep.
Knutson had to' register for
the whole Pacific Crest Trail, to
get in all national and state
parks and climb 14,494-foot
Mt. McKinley.

thor Knutson pauses March 22 atop Springer Mountain in Georgia
before starting an 87-mile training trip along the Appalachian Trail.
Now. he is hiking the entire 2,626-niile length of the Pacific Crest
Traii, starting in the desert a :h. California-Mexico border.


Desert
It starts in tie desert, 50 feei
from the Mexican border: "Hot,
with eight .1o,- of rat-
tlesnake.'
Along with snakes, Knutson
may see bands of illegal immi.-
grants without food or water.
The water situation is his
biggest concern. Appalachian
hikers see two or three water
sources within 15-20 miles. In
the desert, water is 28 miles
apart. For that part, he'll carry
six liters of water each day,
about 1.5 gallons or 16 pounds.
He'll wear all-white clothes
and shoes with built-in sun-pro-


tection factor, but will also
carry rain gear. Two years ago,
it rained three days straight in
the desert.
Mountains
'Once : Knutson reaches
Kennedy Meadows, north of
Mojave, he'll pick up a mail
package with an ice axe and
bear container a bear-proof
food container.
It's required in national
parks. Without it, he'll get fined
$250.'
,He's always tied up his food
in trees. There are a lot of
stretches without trees, but
bears are rarely seen above the.

Hiking Appalachians may be overkill for Pacific Crest
^ .b i


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Thor Knutson
of Sebring has revisited the
Appalachian Trail that he hiked
in 1999.


This time he didn't take on
the whole thing. Knutson hiked
March 21-27, covering 87 miles
from the start at Springer
Mountain, Ga., to prepare hois
gear and self for the Pacific
- Crest Trail.
Everything is ready, he said,
He intended to cover more
distance, but it took more time
than he figured, thanks in part
to the trail being rerouted
through longer, rockier and
steeper paths, and the trail
being busier.
Sleeping bag
When it takes 15-20 minutes
to get warm inside a sleeping
bag, comfort is a major f.ici'r,
Knutson likes to rollover and,
sit up in his sleeping bag, so he
doesn't have to get out of it
before he's done with breakfast.
The bag he took was too tight.

The ice axe will help if he
slips on Sierra, Nev., snowcaps,
and as a weapon, if he actually
needs one.
"I'd rather have an ice axe
than a knife any day." Knutson
said.
He does have a knife a
key-chain miniature Swiss
Army knife.
Injuries
Hikers get blisters, scrapes,
tendinitis and 'stress fractures,
which is why Knutson did a
"pre-hike." Any stress fractures
he got and he got one -
should heal up and not bother
him again..
He's also given himself plen-
ty of time to finish the Pacific
Crest Trail, so he won't have to
keep up a difficult pace:
He'll bring multi-vitamins
for nutrition, but Knutson also
has "Vitamin I" .- Ibuprofen
- to relieve pair and help him
sleep.

Food
Knutson will carry food, but
will buy most of his food along
the way in California. It has
more stores for trail hikers.
He'll have about four "food
drops" in the mail along that.
part, and about 10-12 through
Oregon and Washington state.
Most hiking food is pow-
dered or dried, like Gatorade.,
Lipton meals, Stove Top stuff-
ing, or Ramen noodles, he said.
For a quick meal, he said, a
Snickers bar is a hikers' best
friend.

Plans fall into four categories


By GAIL ENGESSER
Special to the News-Sun
The participating insurance
companies have developed
plans based on the basic Part D
plan as written in the law. The,
plans fall broadly into four cat-
egories. All the plans use the
catastrophic 'coverage as
defined in the law. This is 5 per-
cent or $2 for generic and $5
for brand medications,
whichever is higher.
In general, the monthly pre-
mium is based on the amount of
benefits offered by the plan.
Many of the insurance compa-
nies offer two or three plans
that provide for increasing ben-
efits. Florida has 44 plans avail-
able. All the plans have been
approved by Medicare. '
The 'basic' plans follow the
Part D guidelines. They have a
deductible and 25 percent co-'
insurance until the gap. The
deductible may be less than
$250, but it cannot be more.
When the gap occurs may vary
from plan to plan; some as early
as $1,875. Total cost none later
than $2,250. In the gap the co-
insurance is 100 percent.


SIGN
Continued from 17A
doctor can determine whether
the alternatives are medically
acceptable.
'After May 15, the only rea-
sons coverage can changes if .
one moves into a long-term
nursing home care or if one
moves into an area that is not
covered by the insurance com-
pany.


The generic and brand cover-
age with the gap is the second
type of planri. There may not be
a deductible for these plans.
Generic and brand medications
-.are covered by a co-pay from
$2 to $7 depending upon the
plan. During the gap there is
100 percent co-insurance.
Catastrophic coverage is the
standard as defined in Part D.:
The generic and brand cover-
age with no gap for generic
medications increases the cov-
erage. There may not be. a
deductible. Generic and brand
medications are covered by a
co-pay in Stage 2I In the gap


generic medications continued
to be covered by a co-pay or co-
insurance. Brand medications
are not covered and have a 100
percent co-insurance. Cata-
strophic coverage is 'standard.
The generic and brand cover-
age with no gap increases the
coverage again. There may not
be a deductible. In this type of
plan generic and brand medica-
tions are covered by a co-pay or
co-insurance during Stage 2. In
stage 3 both generic and brand
medications are covered by a
co-pay or co-insurance,
Catastrophic coverage is .stan-
dard.

Questions to ask, things to consider


By GAIL ENGESSER
Special to the News-Sun
There are several things to
consider when choosing a
Medicare Part D Plan. These
are premium, medications cov-
ered and benefits offered. Not
all medications are covered by
all the plans. Further, some
plans have limits on medica-
tions while others do not.
Medications
Most of the plans have for-
mularies online and all of them
have phone lines for people to
ask questions. The formularies
list the medications covered in
the plan and tell what limits
may apply to any given medica-
tion.
Quantity limits: Only a spe-
cific number of doses may be
dispensed. This is typically a
30-day supply at the average
strenegh taken.
Prior authorization: The
insurer must give permission
before the medication will be
di:,pen'sed.
Step, therapy: The insured
must try other medications in
the class before this one will be
dispensed.
Non-preferred brand:, The
insurer will cover this medica-
tion but at a higher co-pay or
co-insurance. ,
Specialty medications: These
are the biological and.injectable
medications, excluding insulin.
The co-pay is considerably
higher than for brand medica-
tions.
Not covered: These medica-
tions are not covered- by the
plan. Many plans do not cover
diabetic supplies although they
do cover insulin. Each plan has
an exceptions policy as required
by Part D. The insured may
request an exception to any of
the limits that may apply.
Type of plan
The best plan is determined
by"the types of medications the'
insured is taking. After deter-
mining what plans coyer the,


U _


specific medications, determine
how many are generic and how
many are brand. Consultation
with a doctor will determine if
there are any therapeutic alter-


natives that may be substituted
for the brand medications.

Important dates to remember for sign up


By GAIL ENGESSER
Special to the News-Sun
Enrollment in Medicare Part
D began on Nov. 15 and will
continue until May 15 for those
who are 'already eligible for
Medicare. Those who were not
eligible for Medicare on Nov.
15 will have an enrollment peri-
od from three months before
eligibility to three months after.
Enrolling before the eligibility
date allows benefits to begin on
that date. After the eligibility
date, benefits begin the month
following enrollment.

During the enrollment period
it is possible to change plans
with no penalty. A record of
benefits already received will
be sent to the new plan
provider. After the enrollment
period ends it is not possible to
change plans until the next peri-
od begins. Once the enrollment
period ends it is not possible to
enroll in a plan until the next
enrollment period begins.
There is a penalty for not
enrolling in a plan. When some-
one enrolls after the first enroll-
ment period ends there will be a


alternative pharmacy claims.
The co-pay or co-insurance is
higher if a non-preferred phar-
macy is used. However, the
chain pharmacies are consid-
ered "in-network" whether they
are in Florida or another state..
Premium
, The cost of the premium will
vary with the benefits provided.
In 'general, the better the bene-
fits. ie hiliher tlie premium. -
N1.'t .ll1 prenmumI .are similar'

premium is not necessarily the
best choice.. Some plans have

one percent per month fee
added to the premium. Thus,
anyone who was Medicare eli-
gible on Nov. 15 and does not
enroll before May 15 will have
to wait until Nov. 15 to enroll.
At that time, the premium will
be increased by six percent (1
percent times six months).
Example: "A" does not enroll in
a plan by May 15 but does
enroll on Nov. 15. For a plan
with a premium of $24, "A"
will pay the premium plus
$1.44 ($24 x 6 percent) for a
monthly premium of $25.44.


The premium may be paid by
check or deducted from the
Social Security check.
Whether or not to
participate in
Medicare Part D
This is something to be con-
sidered by the insured. If an
employer or retirement plan
offers a prescription plan that
meets the Medicare minimum
reqitirmenicitsit is possible to
stay with that plan.
It is not required that
ledicjrc beneficiaries enroll in
a Part D Plan. However .,n', ,oiic

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

The heartbeat

of humility

and power
Long ago, my friend's
disabled daughter gave me a
gift of love to help me over
an emotionally painful time.
When I first met her, I
felt somewhat uncomfort-
able because I didn't know
what to say or do. Though I
shared my personal
heartaches with her mom, I
wasn't aware that her
daughter who couldn't
speak was taking it all
in.
Then she gave me the gift
- a mini picture album that
belonged to her with her
school photo in it. Her
expression of love humbled
and empowered me all at
the same time. It demon-
strated to me that love is
never handicapped.
In'my initial reaction to
her, I had been the handi-
capped one. But, in getting
to know her and having her
respond with this loving
gesture, I knew the cleans-
ing balm of humility and
the freeing power of love.
Today is Resurrection
Sunday the day when
believers in Jesus Christ,
God the Son, rejoice that
the grave could not hold
him. He had been mocked,*
beaten mercilessly, spit
upon and crucified.
Onlookers saw only the
handicap of defeat in the
hands of cruel men. But his
loving sacrificial gift would
save all who believe from
eternal separation from
God.
When I come to him in
believing faith, spiritual
rebirth is mine through the
power of his resurrection. I
must first meet him at the
cross, humbled that
Almighty God reached out
to little me and saw a wor-
thiness I didn't possess -
dying so I might live.
Then I lift my eyes arid
hands to the one who
sweeps me off my feet from
death to life because of
Christ's resurrection.
The heartbeat of a
Christian should exemplify
humility and power -
knowing who we are and
where we came from along
with knowing who we are
in Christ and where we are
going.
Walk in the sandals of
one of Jesus, disciples.
Brush away the tears of
doubt and pain with the
back of your hand. Soar to
heights unimagined when
the resurrected Christ looks
into your eyes.
When Thomas finally
saw the resurrected Christ,
he instantly dropped to his
knees declaring, "My Lord
and my God!"
That humility coupled
with resurrection power
emboldened Christ's disci-
ples. Their lives were never
the same again. Bui the
Lord looks ahead and
responds to Thomas.
"Because you have seen
me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have
not seen and yet have
believed." (John 20: 29,
NIV)
I pray our hearts will beat
with the faithful rhythm of
humility and power discov-
ered at the cross and the
empty tomb. Selah.

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Patricia Hill shares God's impact
on her life in her autobiography, "The Draft An
Interview with God."
She feels God drafted her for service and calls each
of us to report for battle in his army. She shares the per-
sonal moments in her life where a decision was made
to follow God or turn away. And each real-life applica-
tion is woven with biblical references.
The Lord first got her attention while she was living
in New York's Harlem. Age 5 was the beginning of her
conversations with God and her vivid dreams of
unfolding events. However, she didn't yet know her
purpose in life, nor have a permanent relationship with
God.
Originally Hill came to Florida after her divorce to
be near her family who'd already moved here. "I would
have stayed in New York, if the weather had been the
same. You can't beat Florida's sun and beautiful sky,"
Hill said.
It wasn't until age 40 that she wanted a real connec-
tion with God. That's when a friend invited her to the
Refuge Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the
Apostolic Faith in Sebring, where she's still a member.
"I felt like I'd been wandering in the wilderness for
40 years," Hill said.
Although bombarded with miscalculations, trials and
tribulations like divorce, financial security and illness,
Hill is the proud mother of Tiara, 15, Tameka, 17, Toni,
20, Lucinda, 22, and Jorge, 26, and two granddaugh-.
ters. When her daughter Tameka turned 14, she needed
a liver transplant.
"It was a two-year wait just to be placed on the list.
And we missed the first call because of a phone mal-
function. But we trusted and believed there had to be a
reason for that. We grew in patience, and when the ne \
call came, the donor was a Hurricane Katrina victim,
The liver transplant was successful, and Tameka juIt
completed her six-month checkup and is doing greai
*Her gift is music and singing. She not only express
herself by writing songs, but is also writing a book,"
Hill said.
It-was about that time that God told her to write tini
book. With no literary background, Hill said she to:.il-
ly relied on him. And he reassured her that he would
tell her what to do. "It took a year to write.the book and
about six months before the Internet Christian Divisinn
of Tate Publishing chose it," Hill said.
The "Draft An Interview with God" by Patrici.i
Hill is 200 pages and costs $12.95. It is available fr' in
the Christian Living Division of Tate Publishing. To
order a copy, call (888) 361-9473 or go to
www.tatepublishing.com. It also can be ordered fr.'m
bookstores or www.amazon,com.

ters Tameka and Tiara all help prepare a meal.

Who is your best friend?


Most of us go through life knowing a lot of people, some of
whom we call our friends. But on rare occasions, we hook up with
someone who fits that "best friend" category. And that's what
we'd like to hear about from you, either someone from your past
or even today.
Who is or was your best friend? You know, the one you keep or
kept in touch with, shared your secrets with. after all those years
and all those changes of addresses.
The News-Sun wants senior citizens who are living in
Highlands County to tell about their best friends. How and why
did the two of you become "best friends?" What about that per-
son who keeps or kept the friendship alive? And what about what
keeps or kept the friendship alive?
You may have or had more than one "'best friend" but choose


just one to write about.
Limit your write-up to about 400 words or one computer or
typewritten page.
Drop off or mail the story to Cindy Marshall, Senior Scene
Editor. News-Sun, 2227 U.S. 27 S., Sebring, FL 33870 or e-mail
it to cindm.tnarshall@newssun.com. If you have a photograph'of
you and your best friend, submit that to us, along with a self-
addressed, stamped envelope so we can return it. Put your name,
address and phone number on yotw article and on the back of any
photo you send.
"Best Friends" will appear in the June issue of Senior Scene.
All articles are subject to editing for space, style and grammar.
Deadline for submission is May 8.
For details, call 385-6155, ext. 528.

ARTS & LEISURE


Slevin's


By MARCUS WILKINS
Movie Critic
A television trailer for
"Lucky Number Slevin"
describes the neo-noir action
film as "oozing with cool."
The preview moves through
clips of the pursed and squinted
Bruce Willis' pledging to kill an
unseen character, an attractive
colluding couple in an apart-
ment, a brooding crime boss
played by Morgan Freeman and
an assortment of weaponry. The
intertwined flashes of kinetic '
violence and snappy dialogue
might even make you think
"I've seen this particular kind
of cool ooze before." With films
like "Snatch" (2000), "Pulp
Fiction" (1994), and most
recently "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"
(2005), comedic/hipster-crime
cinema has completely estab-
lished itself as a specific genre.
Give the audience a high body
count, a twisting and cerebral
plot, and plenty of quotable pro-
fanity, and they'll leave the the-
ater stylishly in the know.
"Lucky Number Slevin"
director Paul McGuigan offers
a refreshing departure from
what has become formulaic. As,
the melodic* credits linger on
college ruled notepads and the
cast names unscramble, the
montage seems more suited to a
prep-school drama than an
action flick. The scene dis-
solves to an airport where
Willis sits in a wheelchair deliv-
ering quiet lines of dialogue to a
stranger. Surely this isn't the
shotgun-toting .assassin from

'Lucky Number Slevin'
gets




the previews.
* The hero of the story ig the
unflinching Slevin, played b3
Josh Hartnett. A self-pro-
claimed sufferer of "adorexia'
(an affliction rendering the vic-
tim impervious to anxiety)
Slevin finds himself misidenti
fled as Nick Fisher, accosted b3
gangsters and accused of owing
over $100,000 to two riva


gangs. As a young boy, Slevin's
parents were murdered in
response to his father's involve-
ment in a rigged horse race. For
the first 20 minutes, blood and
bullets fly and multiple anony-
mous characters are gunned
down, suffocated and beaten in
parking lots and dark back
rooms. .
Of course, this is to be
expected. Mobsters, bookies
and hit-men always lead to vio-
lence in film. "Lucky Number
Slevin" is unique in that the
orgy of carnage gears down to a
quiet thoughtful movie for the
next hour. We are introduced to
the spunky love-interest
Lindsey, played by Lucy Liu,
who barges in on Slevin and
proceeds to engage the protago-
e nist in her own brand of ama-
y teur detective work.
As Slevin is repeatedly kid-
napped and shoved into crime-
lair high rises, the dialogue
remains soft-spoken coupled
- with a soothing piano and harp
y score that gently heighten, the
g' climb to the inevitable gory cli-
l max.


Dutch Oven Society forms; hosts cooking demonstration


The acting strength of the
film resides in the warring
crime bosses. The always
superb Freeman takes a rare
turn as a villain named "the
boss." Freeman is both despica-
ble and likable, as is his more
melancholy counterpart "the
rabbi," played by Ben Kingsley.


The ever-present comic wit of
the script keeps things light, and
Hartnett's smug delivery as the
confident wrongly-accused hip-
ster keeps the viewer in his cor-
ner.
Slevin and Lindsey are
forced to team up and turn the
situation in their favor, and as
crooked snooping cops and
Israeli body guards join the
party, the story becomes com-
plicated, but never convoluted.
McGuian's film .does an
excellent job of using the con-
ventions of the somewhat
young genre to it's advantage.
Amid the frenetic gun-play and
crunching bones is an engaging
romance, a tormented orphan,
and a mysterious guardian
angel. It's a movie for those


who like familiar cinematic
ingredients served in unexpect-
ed courses. The threads of the
story piece together the past and
the present through flashbacks
and monologue, and although a
surprise ending is hardly sur-
prising. this day and age,
"Lucky Number Slevin" is sat-
isfying and worthwhile.


Marcus Wilkins studied at the
University of Missouri at
Columbia, Mo., earning a bach-
elor of arts in English with a
minor in film study. A self-pro-
claimed 'movie nut,' he enjoys
classic cinema as well as mod-
em, independent, and foreign
film. He can be reached at 385-

Easter stories unfold in library


LIBRARY LINES By
Carolyn Hesselink
All libraries will be closed
for the national holiday of
Easter. Just like the diverse cel-
ebrations of Christmas with
some homes emphasizing Santa
Claus and/or winter celebra-
tions, and other homes display-
ing the creche and reading the
story of the birth of Jesus, so
Easter also has become a mix-
ture of bunnies, eggs, candy,
new outfits and the historical
story of a tragedy turned to joy..
If you're looking to understand
the celebration of Easter, to
read about it with your grand-
children or children, or to find
material that will be at a child's
level, the library is the place to
begin.
History buffs will appreciate
our titles: '.'New Testament
History," "Great Events of
Bible Times," "The Bible as
History," "The Bible Story,"


"Beloved World: The
Story of God" and-
"People 'as Told
From the Bible."
Fiction lovers
need only go as far
as our recent releases
area to pick up the
new Ann Rice book,
"Christ the Lord: Out
of Egypt;" our fic-
tion stacks hold
"Mary's Journal: A
Mother's Story" and
"Two From Galilee:
A Love Story."
There are many


books that will appeal to adults
as well: "Easter," by Aileen
Fisher, tells the story of the res-
urrection and describes old cus-
toms of spring welcome which
are incorporated in the celebra-
tion of Easter. Catherine
Chambers takes a world view of
the holiday with Easter, from
the "World of Holidays" series,


which introduces the
holiday of Easter and
explains how it is cel-
ebrated all over the
planet.
The holidays and
celebrations series
includes the Mari
Schuh book "Easter,"
with simple text and
photographs describ-
ing the history of
Easter and the many
ways in which it is
celebrated.
For those of you


who loved his other books, you
will want to take home Tomi de
Paola's "Book of Bible Stories:
New International Version."
Marjorie Newman wrote her
book, "The Easter Story,"
telling of the last days of Jesus' .
life, as seen through the eyes of
a small donkey.
Movie .goers will want to
take home our DVD "The


Passion of Christ," or the CD
"The Passion of Christ:
Original Motion Picture
Soundtrack." Other videos in
our Heartland Library
Cooperative include "The
Resurrected Life:
Understanding the Meaning of
Easter;" and "King of Kings,"
the epic dramatization of the
life of Christ, from Bethlehem
to the crucifixion and resurrec-
tion.
. You read all the Left Behind
titles, but have, you read this
Tim LaHaye book "God
Always Keeps His Promises?
Since this holiday is preceded
by Good Friday, perhaps a time-
of reflection, of meditation..
. would be helpful. Take home
"His Passion: Christ's Journe)
to the "-Resunec"ion: Devotions
for Ever> DJV of the Year
Nururall\. we have j ton of
Easter bunny stores, of egg
decorating, and e\en making


wreaths of twigs and colored
eggs to 1ut spring -on your
walls. Everything from real rab-
bits in nature to some pretty
silly bunny stories can be found
in our children's Easy Reader
areas. We'll even help you with
our spiie sticker saying Easter
on those stories written for Lhiv.
important holiday.
"In your Easter bonnet, with
all the frills upon it, you'll be

parade." Irving Berlin, from

Going batty in Florida discovering true facts of these mammals


The University of Florida in
Gainesville has the largest
occupied bat house in North
America. It boasts a colony of
more than 100,000 bats. At
dusk it is a popular place to be;
the bats "wake up" from their
daytime slumber and all fly out
of the bat house within a time
span of about 30 minutes. I
highly recommend stopping by
if you're ever up in
Gainesville.
Bats are the only mammal
that can truly fly. Worldwide,
there are more than 1,000
species of bats. Florida is home
to 13 species. The most com-
mon are the evening bat and the
Brazilian free-tailed bat. They
are "colonial" bats and live in
large groups. These are the bats
most likely to live in a bat
house. Other common bats in
Florida are the yellow,
Seminole, and eastern pip-
istrelle. Yellow bats hang out in
dead palm fronds and Spanish
moss.


Some bat species eat fruit,
nectar, fish, and small verte-
brates. All Florida bats eat
insects (you won't find vampire
bats in Florida). Bats are benefi-
cial because they eat insects.
One bat can devour more than
3,000 insects in one night.
Most insectivorous bats eat
their body weight in insects
each night. It has been estimat-
ed that the 22 million Mexican
free-tailed bats roosting in
Bracken Cave, Texas during the
summer eat 250 tons of insects
each night, a large portion of
which are agricultural pests. It
is little wonder that bats are
considered the most important
natural controller of night-fly-
ing insects.
There are many myths and
misconceptions about bats.
First, bats are not blind. They
do, however, use a sophisticated
sonar system called echoloca-
tion. Bats do not attack people
and won't get tangled in your
hair. Bats are actually very


timid and mostly
ignore humans.
There are no vampire j-
bats in Florida, or the
United States for that
matter. Vampire bats
are only found in
southern Mexico,
Central and South -
America. Vampire NEWS
bats do not suck
blood. They lap it up T
from a scrape that
they make with their WATE
incisor (front) teeth.
Another common Jennife
misconception is that
all bats are rabid.
This is not true. Studies have
shown that less than 1 percent
of bats contract rabies and when
they do they usually die within
three or four days. They do not
become aggressive and will go
off 'on their own to die.
However, because they can end
up on the ground it is important
that people do n6t try to pick up
a bat that is lying on the ground.

The bat may bite in
self defense and
transmit the disease.
Bat populations

declining .
Disturbance or
destruction of roost
sites due to develop-.
FROM ment and vandalism
ROM is their greatest
E threat. Most bats liv-
ing in Florida prefer
SHED to roost in mature or
- dead trees or in caves.
Abbey However, many bats
are squeezed out of
urban areas due to
loss of habitat or take up resi-
dence .in buildings and become
the targets for abuse.
So what can 'you do to help
bat populations? If you are for- :
tunate enough to have trees
with Spanish moss growing in
them you can allow the Spanish'
moss to grow freely. If you have
palm trees which form a thick
thatch of fronds such as sable or


Washingtonian, you can make
them available for bats and
other wildlife by not trimming
the dead fronds. This will pro-
vide habitat for some of our
native Florida bats that will not
move into buildings or bat
houses and consequently are
being forced out of urban
areas.
You can also put up a bat
house. There are three alterna-
tives for'mounting a bat house;
on a post, on the side of a build-
ing or on a tree. The post is like-
ly the most desirable option. It
provides a great deal of flexibil-
ity on where the house can be
located. The second choice
would be the side of a building.
The only concern is that drop-
pings may start showing up on
the wall of the building. Bat
houses mounted on trees seem
to have the lowest occupancy
rate of the three choices. If a bat
house is located in a tree it
should be oriented in a way that
keeps branches from obstruct-


ing the entrance and allows as
much sunlight on the bat house
as possible. At least six hours of
sunlight is recommended. Bat
houses should be mounted at
least 10 feet off the ground (the
higher the better). If you do put
up a bat house, you will have to
be patient and may have to wait
two to three years for bats to
move in.
For plans on how to build
your own bat house go to the
following Web site: www.florid-
abats.org/BatHousePlans.htm.

Today we're celebrating the
greatest act of love shown, and
that is the atoning death o/ our
savior, Jesus Christ. The story of
S. Jlesus is a record of incredible
S love. less gave Himself so
S colmpletely and so willingly to'
such ulnitmaginable and
-- undeserved suffering that he .
iwoid never lbc quite the same again. \\'While this
ma Ibe difficult for us to comprehend, the personal
implication for each of us is this. God has provided
L costIly yet permanent means for our salvation.
JesIIs 'wais victorious over His accusers even though
the final victory came after much pain.
Our sins, as much as those of every person who
ever lived, were ithe reason Jesus wentt o the cross.
\'e did not drivc the nails into his body; but if w'e
were not sinners. He would not have had to die.
lesits 's victorious over 'deahli, the grave could not
hold hlim. Today Ive ceiebr' i.csuis' resurrection.
Because He lives. i'c caItflive also. His death on the
cross proved to us His gF&Pilovte. Accept Him today
Mand sharc thai same lovewith Him. Happy
Resurrection Sunday .v

Students at Lake Country Elementary School enjoyed an Easter

Amirah Sullivan (above from left), Alvin Smalls and Josue Ramirez
take a second to pose for a picture. First-graders Jarred Browning

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Crossing the street at any pace can be trouble


All of us have
probably had the .A
thrill of crossing a
busy street. Laur
Granted, many of
the streets in
Highlands County
are just not that challenging to
get across, even during season.
The exception is, of course,
U.S. 27.
I have had reason to try to
cross U.S. 27 on foot on occa-
sion. I am not the fastest person
on my feet even on a good day.
Nevertheless, with the help of a
traffic light and keeping my eye
on- the metal that rumbles its
engine mere feet from me, I
have lived to tell the tale.
Mayvis Coyle, 82, also lived
to tell of her crossing Foothill
Boulevard in the San Fernando
Valley. But she got something
unexpected when she got to the
other side: a traffic ticket.
No, she was not jaywalking.
She does not move very fast -
it is possible that she walks
slower than I do. While the light
was green when .she began her


's LOOK

traffic."


trek across the
road, it turned red
before she reached
the other side. So
the cop slapped a
$114 ticket on her
for "obstructing


The intersection in question
covers five lanes and is quite
busy. According to the online
article I read, someone
observed that one Friday the
light went from green to red in
20 seconds. Even high school
students had to run to get across
before the light changed. And
high school students as a group
are pretty fast.
The police defend them-
selves in this instance, pointing
out that pedestrian accidents
were above normal. They are
concerned with people staying
alive while making the cross-
ing.
The situation reminds me of
the trip I took to western
Canada a few years .ago. In
Canada, pedestrians will casu-
ally cross the street without


worrying about pesky cars, fig-
uring they own the road and
everyone is going to stop for
them. They put a lot of faith in
people's brakes in Canada.
I have to say I think throwing
a ticket on a woman who was
doing the best she could to get
across the road seems a little
excessive. I mean, if the cop
saw she was having trouble get-
ting across, couldn't he have
helped her across the road
rather than write her a ticket?
Wasn't he ever a Boy Scout?
Let me close the column with
two instances of crossing streets
and people who maybe should-
n't be running loose around on
them. I make no claims as to
whether they really happened or
not, but it would not surprise
me if they did.
First, there is the tale of the
man who lived in a semi-rural
area. This means he could live
in Highlands- County. He had
just moved into the neighbor-
hood, and found out that the
road he lived on had a "Deer
Crossing" sign.


He apparently called the
local township administrative
office to ask that the sign be
removed. Why? Because too
many deer were getting hit by
cars and he didn't want them
crossing there anymore.
Then there were the two
women who were crossing the
street. This particular stoplight
was equipped with a buzzer that
goes off when it is safe to cross
the street. One woman asked
the other what the buzzer was
for, and she was told it was to
let blind people know when the
light was red.
Appalled, she asked, "What
on earth are blind people doing
driving?"
Take care when crossing
those roads. Look both ways.
Obey the traffic signals. And if
you see me standing bewildered
in the middle of U.S. 27, get me
a Boy Scout.

Good example

of waste


Editor:
Pertaining to all of the con-
troversy about extending State
Road 635 to Avon Park:
I would like to ask members
of the Florida Department of
Transportation and our county
commissioners just how many
truckers and other motorists
heading north or south on U.S.
27 are going to go out of their
way and turn on State Road 66,
drive another five- miles west,
to State Road 635,. then drive
another 10 miles north to State
Road 64 in Avon Park, then
head east another five miles, to
get back on U.S. 27?
I would guess none. Most
truckers and other motorists
'would stay on U.S. 27 and head
straight through, north or south
.on U.S. 27.
This is another example of
common sense and good judg-
ment by members of the
F.D.O.T. and our county com-
missioners and a waste of tax
payers' money.

It's all there for

a purpose

Editor:
Did you see in the recent
news 'where new information
has been found concerning the
deity of our Lord Jesus Christ?
This article tells how Judas was
Jesus' best friend and did not


betray Jesus but was only doing
what Jesus had told him to do.
Also that later he married Mary
a Magdalene and raised a family.
Of course, this is not Biblical
and will not affect a born-again
Christian, but will certainly be
confusing to a lost person.
My question to you is: Who
- would you rather believe, those
who walked on earth with Him

Satan has many servants but
'will never succeed. God is all

and He will be victorious.
When God created the world,
it was a perfect world. Then He
created man from the dust of

breath of life into his nostrils
and he became a living soul. He
saw Adam needed a compan-
ion; so, He caused him to fall
asleep and took a rib from his
side and made woman. He
placed them in a perfect garden
home with all the provisions for
a perfect life, but he wanted
man to have a choice like He
gives us today; He gave them
rules. When they broke the
rules, He cast them out of the
garden thus, sin entered the

vividly from ele-
mentary school Sheil
was Miss Knablin,
my first-grade
teacher. She taught
us to push our chairs back under
the table where they belonged,
when we were finished with
them. Papers, pencils, crayons,
and whatever else we used were
to be returned to their proper
place before we left the room. I
admired that woman enormous-
ly.
Now that little tidbit will tell
you a lot about my character. In

was my fate. In this
sort of marriage,
both partners


invariably feel the other should
change their ways, but at least
in our case, neither of us ever
succeeded in changing the
other.
I remember following my
husband around our -home,
picking his'clothes up from the
floor where he'd dropped them.
This was usually followed a
short time later, by a howl from
that long-suffering man,
because he didn't know where
I'd put them. He also had a
habit of leaving tools in the din-
ing room, because that was on
his way out, but I lugged them


to the garage. This was usually
followed by a louder howl.
'We. owned a construction'
company, and one day he left a
truck engine next to my desk
with instructions to "keep an'
eye on it." This kind of thinking
has always been a mystery to
me, but to him it made perfect
sense. To this day I can't imag-
ine what.he expected it to do,
maybe try to escape? That
motor was my companion for
several days, because it was too
heavy for me to move.
I must admit it behaved
admirably, never moving from
the spot, but it wasn't a wel-
come addition to my otherwise
orderly office. Eventually,
someone took it away to be

large dump truck and I'm sure it
was just as happy to be in its
rightful place, as I was to see it
gone.
I can't resist straightening
clothes on department store
racks while out shopping, and
although I'm not one whose
kitchen floor you can eat off, 1
do like things to be neat. My
video tapes and DVDs are
shelved alphabetically, and all
the books are arranged accord-
ing to content. You'll find aca-
demic volumes on the bottom
shelf, with fiction, biographies
and poetry on the shelves
above. I usually arrange them
according to size too, so they'll
have a nice symmetrical look.
I removed all the closet doors
in my home, so I can reach in
and straighten anytime I want
to. The clothes hangers are uni-
form in style and color, and are
placed an equal distance from
each other, and I number the
inside of my four pairs of iden-
tical sneakers with laundry
marker, so they won't get
mixed up. Canned goods in the
kitchen cabinets are ii-rred mo
the labels show, and leftovers


are stored in clear containers, so
I can see the contents at a
glance.
When something in my pos-
session outlives its usefulness,
and tends to clutter up the looks
of things, it goes out .with the
potato peels, or I take it to
Goodwill. I'm not a saver.-
I had the misfortune to visit
the home of someone who
turned out to be a Pack Rat. The
collections of flotsam and jet-
sam that covered floors, walls,
and even the stairs leading to
the equally crowded second
floor, left only a narrow path to
walk through. I almost passed
out.
Neatniks can't survive in that
kind of atmosphere. I wanted to
leave immediately, but stayed
out of courtesy to my host.
Once outside I breathed deeply,
and vowed never to return.
When I'm finished 'with a
chair I push it back neatly under
the table where it belongs, and
usually everyone else's too, as
though Miss Knablin were
watching, and grading me
accordingly. Wherever she is,
I'm sure she'd be pleased.

History Lesson
1 Year Ago
April 15, 2005: The Avon
Park boys track team won
the District 11-2A champi-
onship. Edging past Bartow
123-119, the Red Devils
were propelled by strong
performances from
Michael Taylor, Jorge
Gonzalez and Karl
Comadore. Taylor took first
in the 200 meters with a
23.28 time, Gonzalez won
the pole-vault and 100-
meter hurdles and
Comadore took the 300-
meter intermediate hurdles.

10 Years Ago
April 17, 1996: The
Sebring boys tennis team
won the Heartland tennis
crown in convincing fash-
ion, destroying DeSoto,
Avon Park, Hardee and
Lake Placid. Sebring's top
three singles players didn't
drop a game advancing to
the finals where Andy
McGuire, Eric McGuire and
Brodie Stephenson took
the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 cham-
pionships.

AP weightlifters have state title in sight


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK
They've been toiling in virtual
anonymity for years now -
countless hours spent in .the
weight room and a nearly infinite
number of times pushing a bar loaded with
an insane amount of heavy metal plates.
But if all goes according to plan Friday
in Gainesville, a quartet of Avon Park
weightlifters won't be so anonymous any-
more.
Seniors Alex Caldwell, Justin Wilson
and Leroy Sanders and junior Jason
Roman don't just plan on putting on a
good show in the Class 1A state meet at
Santa Fe Community College. They plan
on winning it.
It % would be an historic event. Not only
has no Highlands County team ever won a
weightlifting state title, there's never even
been an individual champ.
That will almost Lert.,inlh change on, .
Friday. Caldwell, Wilson and Sanders all
enter the meet ranked No. 1 in ihehi
respective weight classes, each 1 ith a pret-
ty good lead on the field.
"These guys have been such hard work-
ers and they sacrificed being on the


wrestling team because they knew they
had a shot and wanted to do it. Now, here
they are," said longtime coach Don
Hickman, who is excited about the
prospect of having not one, but three
champions.
'V We've been "That would be
f.mintsiic. It's
there before, something I've
always dreamed
We just have ,of ndoach
I R.Andolph i,
to go up MT\I-nd., and I are
holding our breath
there and do that it happens.
I've always had
what we 're people there, but
nobody's ever got-
supposed to ten one. It would
be exciting to get
do. three at one time."
And the best ,
.. USTIN WILSON thing is that none
liche three sen-
iors have to do anything out of the ordi-
nary to be in a 2ood position to win. All
they have to do'is continue the track
they've been on all season.
"We just want to make sure they get
their best lifts in that day," Hickman said.


"If they can just do their best, they'll blow
everybody out.
Caldwell has a 30-pound cushion in the
139-pound weight class, where Bland is
the No. 13 seed. Wilson's total is 20
pound, benier than anybody else in the
154-pound class, even though he is incor-
rectly listed as a No. 2 seed in the qualify-
ing list.
But Sanders is the one with an almost
mortal lock on winning the 169-pound
title, coming into the state meet a whop-
ping 45 pounds ahead of his closest com-
petitor.
"That's been my dream ever since I
started in ninth grade," Sanders said of
winning a title. "I plan on making it hap-.
pen. I'm just going to try to stay humble
and make sure I get my first lift. The first.
lift is the most important. I've got to make
sure I win it because I know stuff can hap-
pen at state. It's not an ordinary meet."
While Sanderm'-nmu ha\e the bighest
\xeiht totaflon trie team he qLicklI giN e.s
the nod to Caldwell as being the pound-
for-pound leader.
"Who do you know that's 130 pounds
and can bench 300?" he asked.

AVON PARK No matter
what happens, at least the
Panihers can say they went
down fighting.
Friday night's 5-4 win in 11
innings over Palm Beach was
South Florida
Community College's
second straight one-run
win, keeping' their play-
off hopes, which seemed PaIm
dead just a few days ago,
alive for the moment.
The win tied the
Panthers with Brevard -
which lost 7-0 to Broward on
Friday at 9-14 in the
Southern Conference. That
means the season comes down
to two games for the Panthers,
one of which was played on
Saturday at Broward and the

final game on Tuesday at home
against Miami-Dade.
"We're back tied with
(Brevard), but they own the
tiebreaker with us, so in some
type of configuration in the
next two games, we've got to
finish one game ahead of
(- them," SFCC coach Rick
Hitt said.
."After all of this, it's a
two-game season."
each The I Panthers can
S thank some strong relief
pitching by Calvin
Brutus and winner Matt
Monnier and two clutch plays
in the final inning- one on
defense and one on offense -
by Dwayne Bailey for keeping
them in the playoff picture.

AVON PARK Even the
local wildlife came out to see if
the Lady Red Devils could finish
the regular season with a win
Friday night.
Midway through the game, a
gray fox came trotting down the
right-field line, having slipped
through a gap- between the out-
field fence anda gate, and took in,
a few pitches before Avon Park
coach Mike Cobb chased him
off.
What the fox saw in his short
stay was the Lad-, Devils in the
process of rolling to a 14-3, five-
inning win over Lake Placid to


end the regular season with a per-
fect record against the rest of the
teams in Highlands, Hardee and
DeSoto counties.

Devils


shut out


Booker

Albritton's bat,
Luke Sedlock's
pitching lead way
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK- It was a
busy night for three Red
Devils, in particular, and a
commendable team effort
for the remainder of the ros-
ter as Avon Park handled
Sarasota Booker 6-0 Friday
night.
The Red Devils
improved to 15-7 overall
and 9-3 in District 10-4A
play.
Starting pitcher Luke
Sedlock pitched what coach
Mort Jackson called "the
best game he's pitched this
year," keeping the ball on
the ground all night for the
shutout. Allowing only two
hits through seven innings,
Sedlock showed impecca-
ble control after walking the
first batter he faced. He fin-
ished the night with a
strikeout and only two
walks.
"Luke's been used spar-,
irigly because of injuries,"
said Jackson. "It's nice to be
able to rest our ace (Luke's
cousin -Johnny -
Sedlock), and Avon Paik
with Cory k
Topa out with 6 .
he, flu, we Booker
S.needed a good 0

"Johnny will
be able to go next week'
against Lake Region."
The bats stayed hot for
the Red Devils, who have
amassed 51 hits in three ball
games. Leading the charge
with a 4-for-4 night was
center fielder Lee Albritton,
who systematically distrib-
uted single after single to
left and center every trip to
the plate. Matt Devlin made
his presence felt with three
RBIs and Taiwan Perry
contributed with an RBI
single of his own in the top
of the seventh.
For'the defense, no one
had their number called
more than third baseman
Chavious Gordon. Totaling
seven putouts in the game,
Gordon had three ground
balls in a row hit his way at
one point, scooping them
.up and firing darts to first
baseman Johnny Sedlock.
Avon Park started its
scoring in the second inning
when Bo Comadore, pinch
running for catcher Paul
Conrad, rounded third on a
Ryan White sacrifice fly to
center field. After a quick
catch and throw to the cut-
off man by Booker center
fielder Brian Craycroft,

plate for the Dragons.
"We were trying to move some
people around and let some sen-
iors play some different positions
they've always wanted to play,"
Avon Park coach Mike Cobb
said. "We just kind of wanted to
do something. It's the last night
they'll ever get to play here
unless we come back after dis-
trict.
"We were just kind of playing
around a little. They came out
and made those errors and I went
back to plan B, and that was put-
ting my defense back in."

PARK
Continued from 1E
unusual errors and the girls
'capitalized on them in the first
inning," Lake Placid coach
Marilyn Jones said. "Avon Park
fought back there, and our
pitchers had a rough evening.
All in all, it's a good end of a
season for us becAuse we got
some" girls on base that really
haven't been on much this
year."
It didn't take long for the
Avon Park offense to overcome
the defensive lapses, exploding
for eight runs in the second
inning to take control. Heather
Barnes went 3-for-4 with four
RBIs and Jessica Cormier was
2-for-2 with a two-run triple to
lead the offense, which had
eight of the nine players who
came to bat getting at least one
hit.
"For having a day off from
school and not being in the
middle of things and laying
around the house, they played
OK," Cobb said, adding that
the win was a good lead-in to
the District 10-4A tournament
that starts Monday in Palmetto
with the Devils facing a Hardee
they've beaten easily twice this
season.
"I feel like they're ready,"
Cobb said. "I think our girls
will be pumped, expecting to
beat them."


SCOTT DRESSELINews-Sun
Avon Park's Jessica Cormier beats the throw to Lake Placid, second
baseman Darby Underwood in the second inning of Friday's game.


SiTRENGTH
Continued from 1E
"You've got to. be highly dedicated, stay
focused and work hard," Caldwell said when
asked how he got so strong. "I feel pretty posi-
tive I'm going to finish it out and win it. I wait-
ed three years to be ranked No. 1 and it's finally
come through."
If the Devils win the team title, however, it
will likely come down to the performance of
Wilson and Roman.
Wilson will be battling with Tanue Yanguoi of
Jacksonville Bolles, and the winner of that
weight class and the seven team points that
goes with it could decide the overall title.
"It could all come down to (Justin),"
Hickman said. "Last year, 23 points won it and
21 points got second. (Three titles) would give
us 21 points and we'd be in the running with
Jacksonville Bolles."
Any points Roman can score could also be
vitally important.


"Jason has the opportunity of sneaking tip.
there and placing for us,"' Hickman said. "If he
keeps improving, I think he has a shot of getting
sixth place, which would give us a couple more
points."
Wilson is unfazed by the prospect of having
the weight of a title shot on his shoulders.
"It's a good motivation because I've got to
beat him for us to have a legitimate shot to win,
but it's no pressure because I've been doing this
a long time," he said. "We've been there belfoi
We just have to g. up theic and do what we're
supposed to do."
If they do that, then a lot of people will know
that there's a pretty good weightlifting program
at Avon Park.
"We've been pushing these weights for so
long and we really don't get any recognition out
of it," Wilson said.
"But if we come back with a state champi-
onship, I think it will turn a lot of people's
'heads and-have a lot of people looking-atAvon
Park weightlifting .'"

DEVILS
Continued from 1E
Comadore came cruising to the
plate just under catcher Hinter
Davis, who couldn't quite turn
and tag him in time.
Booker made solid contact at
the plate all night, but couldn't
keep the ball away from the
Devils, who have been impres-
sive in the field since their
"defense only" practice April 9.
With the offense plugging
away as consistently as it has
been, coach Jackson might be
apt to make those fielding sem-
inars a regular part of the regi-
men.
"We're really excited. It's
good to be playing this well at
this point of the season,"
Jackson said. "We'll probably
focus on defense again on
Monday. After we did that last
week we had two really good
games defensively and then
had a little bit of a let up.
"The way we're hitting the
ball, we don't need to work on
that as much."


HOPES
Continued from 1E
we've kind of gone back to
early season play; we've
pitched well and found ways to'
'Vin games," Hitt said, referring
to his team's 20-5 start that was
followed by just two wins in the
next 20 games.
"They battled tonight. We
really battled pitching-wise and
got some key hits."
None of those hits was any
more key than the one Bailey
got to win the game in the 11th,
which came a short time after
the shortstop had saved a run by
snagging a hopper behind sec-
ond base and making the throw
to first for the final out to save
a run in the top half of the
inning.
"On a lot of days, in a lot of
situations and with a lot of
shortstops, that's a base hit to
center," Hitt said.
"He made back-to-back
clutch plays, on the defensive
side of the ball and then on
offense with the big swing."


MARCUS WILKINS/News-Sun
Lee Albritton hits the first of his four singles for Avon Park on
Friday.


Bailey's game-winning hit to
right field came with the bases
loaded after Billy Dobson led
off with a double, Brad Gooch
got a check-swing single up the
middle and Tyler Wright was
intentionally walked, and
capped a comeback for the
Panthers, who gave up an early
2-0 lead and trailed 4-2 heading
into the bottom of the fourth.
Wright led off the bottom of
the first with a double and
scored on a wild pitch and Nick
Polston added a run-scoring
single to put SFCC ahead by
two.
But Palm Beach got a run
back in the second, then scored
two unearned runs in a three-
run fourth to take a two-run
lead.
After Josh Welkes' RBI sin-
gle in the bottom of the fourth
Wright pulled the Panthers back
even by again scoring on a wild
pitch in the fifth after reaching
on an error, stealing second and
advancing on Bailey's single.
