SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 9/NUMBER 31


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID More than a month after a
Florida Highway patrolman was broadsided by a semi,
the trooper has been issued a ticket.
Trooper Joshua J. Zahller, 32, was flown to Lee
Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers before being released
March 23.
Zahller continues to recover and hasn't returned.to
work, FHP Lt. James F. Potter said Thursday afternoon.
IAccording to Sgt. George R. Taunton, who investi-
gated the accident, Zahller was eastbound on State
Road 70 in a marked FHP Camaro at 4:50 p.m. March
12.
Frank Hodo Jr., 34, Avon Park, was following the
trooper in his sod-loaded tractor-trailer as they drove
toward U.S. 27.
Francine Kitt, of Port St. Lucie, was behind Hodo in
an sport utility vehicle when Zahller "suddenly" pulled
to the right side of the highway then attempted a U-
turn, she told the News-Sun after she was interviewed
by troopers at the scene.
Hodo said he swerved to avoid the officer but didn't,
striking Zahller's driver side at about 40-45 mph.
Kitt, a truck driver herself, said she was amazed that
Hodo kept the truck upright and out of the trees that
lined the north side of the road.
Not only did he keep the truck on its 18 wheels,
Hodo managed to bring his rig out of the ditch and back
onto the shoulder of the westbound lane.
In a press release Thursday, the FHP announced that
Zahller was cited for improper U-turn.
"Good," Kitt said after learning of the disposition.
"He should get a ticket."
When asked, Potter wouldn't comment as to whether
the trooper faces internal disciplinary action.
"In this situation he's treated like any other citizen,"
Potter said. "He has three options. He can pay the fine,
go to court, or attend a safe driving school if that's
offered."
Hodo who's been without his truck since the acci-
dent and who learned of the outcome of the investiga-
tion from a reporter on Thursday expressed relief
that he can move forward in filing his claim.
"It's been so much hassle with them," he said, refer-

encing to his insurance company, through which he has
full coverage on his truck. "They just released the
police report. My insurance company doesn't want to
do anything until they get the report."
Hodo said the company is waiting to see who was at
fault for the accident before issuing any checks.
In the meantime, he's had to forego the $800 the
truck grosses daily for the past 39 days and perform his
own,.:-1 s .


"I just about almost got it fixed," Hodo said. "If .1
was at fault, I could understand but I wasn't at fault."
Now that the report has been finalized, Hodo said
he's going to see how long it takes for his insurance
company and the state to settle.

they own two tractor-trailers one is being leased and

Schoolboard splits on kindergarten center


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING As of Feb. 13,
there were 968 kindergartners
attending Highlands County
public schools.
The four Sebring elementary
schools Cracker Trail, Fred
Wild, Sun 'N Lake, and
Woodlawn account for 450
of those students. Sun 'N Lake
Elementary School has an addi-
tional 98 students not included
in that total because, technical-
ly, they live in Avon Park.
With a total student popula-
tion of 3,101 children, Sebring
elementary schools are filled
and overflowing.
"We need some relief," Fred
Wild Elementary School
Principal Ruby Handley told


school board members Tuesday
afternoon.
Only Sun 'N Lake
Elementary School has room
for more portable classrooms,
and it already has an enrollment
of 815 students.
More children are predicted
to enroll next year.
In short, the dilemma faced
by district officials, is how to
bring more classes online
quickly; and efficiently, as
money is tight.
Other school districts have
converted empty box stores into
schools or learning centers, so
Highlands County looked into
turning the former Food Lion
Building & Shoppes of Sebring
at 3560 and 3570 U.S. 27 S.
into a kindergarten center.


That way garten rooms at the schools
could be used to house other
classes.
The rationale hinged on time
- the building could be con-
verted for use this coming
school year --and cost -.at
approximately $7.5 million, it
was about half what a new
school would cost.
During discussion at
Tuesday's school board work-
shop, some concerns, and dif-
ferences of opinion became
clear.
"I have a lot of concerns," J.
Ned Hancock said.
Hancock was concerned
about the center's location,

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
The school district is considering placing a kindergarten center in
the former Food Lion Building & Shoppes of Sebring. Critics have
many concerns, including placing young students near such a high
volumee traflic location. Supporters feel needs could be addressed,
and that the property will only gain in value over time.


Valedictorians


...and salutatorians


-In to take their bow


Sebring High School valedictorians (from left) Pranav Navin Deshpande and Niktel H. Patel share vale-

SEBRING For four years
their lives have revolved
around books and study.
They've been focused and goal
oriented.
Now, with only a month to
go before graduation, the
changes that face them are
beginning to sink in.
This year's class of 2006 rip-
ples with excitement, trying on
the idea that next month at this
time they'll all be alumni.
And as they have throughout
their careers, this year's vale-
dictorians and salutatorians still
lead the way.


Valedictorians are first in
their class, salutatorians are
second.
At Sebring High School,
there was a tie this year. Two
longtime friends shared the
valedictory honors.
Nittel H. Patel and Pranav
Navin Deshpande each have a
grade point average of 5.40.
Rather than devolve into a
pointless competition, they
decided to stick together, a
decision their parents support-
ed.
Their high GPA is possible
by taking advanced placement
and dual enrollment courses,

that they should ingest more

"dehydrated." The writer sin-
cerely apologizes for the typo-
graphical error.

Highlands County Sheriff's Office Randy Labelle explains that two semi trailers were seized during
Wednesday's marijuana bust in Lake Placid.


Lake Placid cannabis crop



was 'ready for harvest'


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A local
man is in jail under a $500,000
bond on charges of growing
cannabis and possessing more
than 20 granls of cannabis with
intent to sell.
Israel Rodriguez, 54, of Lake
Placid, is facing those charges
and possession of drug para-
phernalia, after Highlands
County sheriff's. deputies acted
on a citizen's tip.
At 11 a.m. Tuesday. April 18,
members of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Special
Investigations Unit and an
agent of the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement, met
Rodriguez at his home, 4701 W.
Josephine Drive.
While searching his property,
.they found two semitrailers,
still on their axles, a vehicle
box, van container and a box
van all being used as growing
houses, reports said. The con-
tainers housed a total of 107
cannabis plants with r6ot sys-
tems and ranging in height from
12 inches to seven feet.
Deputies allegedly found
other paraphernalia, such as
growing pots, bamboo sticks in
-the-_plant-pots holding.,upiooL..
systems, high-pressure sodium
bulbs and ballast lamps, and

However. they found no cash
in the operation, according to
Lt. Greg Pearlman 'with the
investigations unit.
Deputies are still investigat-
ing whether or not the rigs were
assembled on site or brought in.
They were tucked into the,
woods in scrub, and hard to
find, Pearlman said.
From the time he received
the tip to the time they arrived
at the house was about a half
hour. It was fresh information
they wanted to act on quickly.
It was fortunate, Sheriff's
Capt. Randy LaBelle said.
Based on the prime condition of
the ,plants, the ripeness of the
buds and their size, he alleges
that Rodriguez was preparing to
harvest and process the crop.
"We beat him to it," LaBelle
said.
In his experience, cannabis
growers tend to cut plants
before they get so large, he said.
Easily, each plant could have
netted $5,000-$6,000 per
pound, LaBelle said. Easily, the
crop could have been worth $1
inillion. LaBelle and Pearlmann
said. .... ; .. .. ...,...
.-Peartman-said-the-setup-was


way beyond "basic gardening."
Each "growing. house" was
lined with Milar film, had even-
ly spaced sun lamps on timers,
as were the irrigation systems.
The plants were growing in
pots and supported by bamboo
poles, Pearlman said, with natu-
ral soil and fertilizer, and cli-
mate controls. Each trailer had
one or more five-ton air-condi-
tioning units placed underneath,
pumping in cool air through
holes in the sides of the trailer
to offset the- heat from the
lamps.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Rodriguez
allegedly said -the trailers all
belonged to him, and he grew
cannabis for personal use.
Affidavits said he also pro-
vided paperwork showing he
was the lessee of the property.
There was one person living in
the house with him, LaBelle
said, but Rodriguez allegedly
said that person was not
,involved.
LaBelle thanks members of
the Road and Bridge
Department for bringing in a
semitractor to haul off the trail-
er, and a.fprklift to pick up the
air-conditioners.

SEBRING The word from
the Recreation and Parks
Advisory Committee is if you
want it, ask.
The county is setting up
impact fees, which can buy land
or construct facilities that resi-
dents want, including parks and
recreation.

A recreation impact fee could
be countywide. Robert Wallace,
vice-president of Tindale-
Oliver and Associates Inc., has
suggested setting up districts
around Avon Park, Lake Placid
and Sebring to collect fees for
use in those parts of the. county.

Ned Hancock, chairman of
the recreation committee, wants
everyone with an interest in
recreation to let county com-
missioners and recreation com-
mittee members know what
impact fees they want to help
pay for it.'
"If we don't hear of a need,"
Hancock said, "(we'll) assume
there is none."

The first county workshop on
impact fees is June 13. After
that, the county will have a pub-
lic hearing on June 27, to take a
vote.
Each year, the county allo-
cates $500,000 from the capital
improvement plan for recre-
ation. Of that, $332,000 is ear-
marked to pa) debt on bonds
issued to build the Sebring
sports complex and Windy
Point Park on Lake Istokpoga.
The recreation committee
recommends how the county
should spend the rest' -
$168,000.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said the committee would
have the best knowledge of
what recreation the county
needs, but Hancock said com-
mittee members must hear from
residents and advocates to
know wharpeople want.
For a long time, it was soft-
ball. It ma\ still be, Hancock
said. Both he and 'committee
_member. Joe. Collins-saidMax.


Long Recreational Complex is
"maxed out."
Collins said the county
should focus more on league
play than tournaments, but
Walter "Rocky" Ellingsworth
Jr., manager of the new Sebring
sports complex, said tourna-
ments support operations and
maintenance costs so league
players can have nice fields.
Impact fees could help other
sports and activities, such as
hiking -and cycling trails, by
purchasing right of way.

When it comes to outlining
what the county already has,
Hancock prefers to count public
'facilities only, but Avon Park
City Manager C.B. Shirey said
a swimming pool a 2,000-per-
son gated coihmunity, for
instance, serves 2,000 people
who won't need a public pool.
Mike Martino, executive
director of the Highlands
County Family YMCA said the
YMCA board wants to build a
pool. He wants it enclosed for
temperature control through the
winter and summer.
It will need residents' sup-
port first, he said. Otherwise,
there's little incentive to build
it.
Other proposed needs, along
with hiking/cycling trials are
tennis courts, access to certain
lakes, and even an all-terrain
vehicle recreation area, which
alone could require several
dozen, if not more than 100
acres to be usable.

Cool said ATVs are a good
sport for those I ho do it safely.
The county has' conservation
land, but ATVs can't ride there.
Wheels will tear up, soil and
endangered plants.
Recreation and Parks
Director Vicki Pontius plans to
visit an ATV area in Ocala to
learn how tracks might inte-
grate with environmentally sen-
sitive areas. There are rules to
work out, she said, such as
whether or not people may ride
at night, how to police
entrances, and how much peo-
-ple-might-paydor admissiohn '

Health officials educate 200


people
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sunl
SEBRING At the sugges-
tion of her daughter who is
employed by the Highlands
County Health Department,
Bonnie Rawlings joined about
200 people Wednesday for the
Pandemic Influenza Summit.
"This is something we really
have to be prepared for so we
can understand what they're
talking about," Rawlings said,
as she and her son and daugh-
ter-in-law Robert "Bob" and
Dee Rawlings nibbled on fresh
fruit and fried chicken wings
while they waited for the pre-
sentations to begin. "This will
give us the information we
need."
Dr. Paula Thaqi, county
health department director,
opened the summit and was fol-
lowed by Florida Secretary of
Health Dr. M. Rony Francois,
Highlands County Emergency
Operations Center Director Bill
Nichols, Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services representative Dr.
John Crews and Dr. Dian
Sharma, chief of the Florida
Health Department Bureau of
Epidemiology.
Each spoke on a different
aspect of pandemic influenza
- from general preparedness to
what is a flu pandemic.
"You hear things and you just
don't know who or what to
believe," Robert Rawlings said.
Francois said effective plan-
ning on the local level and
proactive surveillance and
tracking on a global level would
help to mitigate whatever niate-
rializes during a flu pandemic,
which is said to be inevitable.
"As much as we like to be in
control none of us are in control
of Mother Nature," he said,
explaining that the "only thing"
that has prevented a pandemic
is that the H5N1 strain of avian
influenza (bird flu) lacks the
ability to transfer .from human

To the rescue


on pandemic influenza

Rawlings and her son Robert Rawlings, Wednesday at the Agri-
Civic Center, where about 200 members of the community gathered
for a Pandemic Influenza Summit.


structure have to occur," Dr.
Marc Siegel wrote in his book,
"Bird Flu: Everything you need
to know about the next pandem-
ic" in which he suggests media
and government are over-hyp-
ing the threat of a pandemic -
because of the "next big story"
factor for the media and
because government agencies
can secure increased funding
with less. public scrutiny. "This
form of H5NI appears to have
been around since the 1950s ...
We don't' know how many
thousands have developed anti-
bodies to this virus and not got-
ten sick from.it, so it may not be
as deadly as it seems to be to
humans. ... If it mutates suffi-
ciently to infect us' routinely, it
may do so in a way that causes
it to be fai le<. lethal."
According to the World
Health Organization, there have
been 196 cases of humans
infected with avian flu since
2003, with 110 of those result-'
ing in death.
"These numbers do not sug-
gest the human population faces
an insurmountable threat from
this virus," Peter Doshi said in a
March 2 21. column for i,,
Christian Science Monitor.
In it, he quotes flu scientist
Peter Palese, of the Mount Sinai


School of Medicine in New
York, who told the New York
Times in a Nov. 8, 2005, article
that the H5N1 virus has been
"around for more than a dozen
years, but it hasn't jumped into
the human population" because
it probably can't.
"Dr. Palese points to studies
of serum collected from rural
Chinese populations 'in 1992,"
Doshi wrote, noting that "mil-
lions" of people had "natural
antibodies" to H5N1. "This
suggests they had been infected
anid recovered without becom-
ing noticeably or extremely sick
- not the outcome one would
expect from a virus as feared as
this one."
Doshi claims that the "over-
all diS. LIusSiln"' of a flu pandem-
ic lacks "disagreement, criti-
cism and skepticism" which he
called "the bedrock of science."
"Hope is not a strategy,"
Francois told the Highlands
County crowd. "It's about pre-
paredness not panic or politics."
According to Sharma, the.
federal government allocated
$3.9 million in tax money to
Florida which began such,
plep.,n.,i ..,n. in 1998 and is-
working on a .10th revision to
the plan.


Nichols thanked the audience
for their attendance.
"When you prepare yourself,
you're one less person I have to
worry about taking care of," he
said, explaining his role as
being the "systematic manage-
ment of emergencies."
The county has a comprehen-
sive plan for emergencies such
as hurricanes that Nichols, with
input from the public health
officials and others, is tailoring
to accommodate an influenza
pandemic.
For those attending such as
the Rawlings, the take-home
information came from Thaqi
who explained that the flu
virus, avian or otherwise, can
be carried and spread up to
three days before a person
begins to exhibit symptoms.
"People can actually spread
the flu when 'they're feeling
good," she said, explaining that
the flu can survive on hard sur-
faces as long as 48 hours.
Thaqi estimated as many as
212 deaths should a pandemic
reach Highlands County, with
nearly 33,000 people here
becoming infected and more
than 600 requiring hospitaliza-
tion.
Estimating a 30-50 percent
infection rate in the county,
Thaqi warned of school clos--
.ings and business disruptions.
In anticipation of such a sce-
nario, the state is recommend-
ing people cache three weeks of
water and non-perishable foods,
packaged indiiiduall) when
possible.
In addition, prescription
medications should be stock-
piled as medical facilities may
be overwhelmed during a pan-
demic, Thaqi said. During .j
recent interview, however, she
said doing the same with flu
vaccines would likely prove
futile as it's unknown whether
current vaccines v.'uld uedt the
bird flu in hui.i'ns..

Twins reunite at Highlands County Blood Bank


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK The
Highlands County Blood Bank
doubled their pleasure Monday
as identical twins, Mickey and
Montie Dowling, donated side
by side.
The two have been donors
since 1962, when they first
donated blood while attending
Huntington College in Mont-
gomery, Ala. They have been.
giving the gift of life now for 42
years.
"This is the first time since
we were in college that we've
donated together and this
weekend we're having our 40th
college reunion," Mickey said.
Montie, of Lake Placid, sug-
gested they donate together
while Mickey was here visiting
from Tucson, Ariz.
Originally starting out as reg-
ular blood donors, they now are'
apheresis donors and are also
on the American Bone Marrow
Registry.
Apheresis is a process in
which blood is first removed
from the donor, the main com-
ponents are separated, one or
more is kept, and the blood is
transfused back to the donor.
These components include
platelets, red blood cells, and
plasma.
"Sometime in the 1970s,


KEVIN SHUTT/News-Sun
Phlebotomist/apheresis technician Terri Mclean begins apheresis on Mickey Dowling Monday at the
Highlands, County Blood Bank as his identical twin, Montie, relaxes during the procedure.


Montie told me he was donating
platelets and asked if I had done
that," Mickey said. "I hadn't,
but started doing it then."
Terri Mclean, phlebotomist
and apheresis technician at the
blood bank, said that the
platelets, donated by the broth-
ers would benefit cancer


patients or burn victims.
According to information pro-
vided by Florida's Blood
Centers, cancer patients need
blood and blood products on a
regular basis while receiving
chemotherapy and/or radiation
- one to, two, transfusions of
platelets per week. Up to 10


donors are needed for just one
transfusion of platelets, creating
a high demands for that particu-
lar blood product.
Burn victims can. require 20
units of, platelets, and open
heart surgery patients need an
average of six units of platelets
and red blood cells.


Statistics show that every
three seconds, someone
requires a unit,of blood and that
one out of three people will
need a transfusion in their life-
time. This is why blood banks
and centers everywhere need
donors to step up and offer the
gift of life. Unfortunately, only
about five percent of the eligi-
ble population donates.
Montie said that when he
comes to donate they take
'whichever components they
need. "It doesn't matter to me
as long as it helps someone," he
said.
Carmen Selander, branch
manager of the blood bank, said
that the demand depends on the
blood type.
Mickey said that he and
Montie have 0 positive blood,
the most common blood type of
all.
"There is always a need for
type 0 blood," Mclean said.
What they take during
apheresis also depends on what
the donor is eligible to donate at
the time.
"Platelets can be donated
every two eek,, blood cells
every. 56' days, and plasma
every four weeks,". Mclean
explained:
Montie comes to the blood
bank in Sebring every two
weeks for apheresis.


"I like to volunteer," he said.
"And this is the easiest thing in
the world to do. Think about it
- we have a ready supply of
something that can be life sav-
ing for someone in need and our
bodies regenerate it so quickly."
Mickey feels the same way.
"Most people would proba-
bly give,if they knew about the
opportunity how it can bene-
fit others and that there's noth-
ing to be aliaid of," he said.
Selander said that the, good
thing about apheresis is that
when the process is completed
the blood products are "transfu-
sion ready."
Selander said that they have a
pretty good donor base, but that
many of them are winter resi-
dents and will be heading home.
for the summer months.
"We really need to recruit
more donors at this time," she
said.
Often people assume that
they aren't eligible to donate for
a number of reasons; but the
only way to be sure is to check
with the blood center.
Screening for eligibility is
simple and includes a review of
an individual's medical history,
and a mini-physical. The center
encourages people to at least
come in to see whether or not
they can donate before dismiss-
ing the notion.

Your Dead Horse Quiz results
To calculate your score give yourself 10 points for every "yes"
answer, then subtract five points for every "no" answer.
Your score will fall into one of five categories which will most
closely describe your present mind set (dead horse) or the onset of
dead horse syndrome (a warning sign that a dead horse is about to
adopt you for some time). There are as many breeds of dead hors-
es as they are women willing to ride them. Details on these types
of dead horses can be found in the book.

Score 140 to 200
Denial
You are in definite denial that you're on a dead horse. You are at
the starting gate for the run of your life and you're sitting on a dead
horse. Think about it. You'-re unhappy, but you say, "Why change
now? I'm doing just fine." You can't possibly win this race if you
can't even get out of the starting gate. Your horse is dead. You have
been trying to give this horse mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. It is
dead. Dismount! You need the book ASAP. The first chapter you
should read is Sitting Comfortably In The Saddle Of A Dead
Horse.
Score 80 to 140
Passive
You know you are on a dead horse, but hope no one will notice.
The race is about to start but some .how you think if you smile, sit

Scott Jahnke: All the right moves


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING-Scott Jahnke is
14 years old and in the eighth
grade at Sebring Middle
School. But on July 1 he'll be
dancing his heart out at the
Kennedy Center in Washington
D.C.
Jahnke's been dancing since
he was 3 years old, and has
been in Dance Unlimited for the
past six years. When his moth-
er performed in "La Mancha" at
the Highlands Little Theatre,
Scott worked backstage. Then
with "Steel. Magnolias," he
helped with the set. After this
taste, he performed in
"Brigadoon," "Music Man,"
and is currently in "Seven
Brides for Seven Brothers." His
favorite form of dance is jazz
and lyrical, then ballet, hip hop
and tap.
"When I dance, it makes me
feel passionate. If I've had a
rough day, I put myself into the
steps and just focus on that.
And when there are happy
times, I let myself go crazy,"
Jahnke said.
His mother feels Scott is
driven to dance and act, and that
he's had tor overcome a lot as a
serious male dancer. She is
proud, excited and looking for-
ward to his career. Now he has
an opportunity to attend
National Performing Arts Camp
for a week in Washington, D.C.,
on June 25.
Robert Black, new to the area
and HLT has not only per-
formed at Broadway Palm
Dinner Theatre, Naples Dinner
Theatre, national and interna-
tional tours, he's also had TV
appearances. When Black cho-.
reographed "Seven Brides for
Seven Brothers," he felt Jahnke

ated for him. "He is very ener-
getic and focused. I feel the
camp can give him discipline, a
more structured performing arts
setting and show him what it
actually takes to make it in that
'profession," Black said.
Because Black had previous-
ly taught at camp, he recom-
mended Jahnke for this oppor-
tunity. "Choreographers from
Broadway are assigned to each
camp. Usually.they're working
on a show and practice with
these kids on getting the kinks

Want to help?

What: Send Scott Jahnke to National Performing Arts
Camp, Washington D.C.
When: For one week beginning June 25
Cost for camp: $1,200
Send donations: Highlands Little Theatre is accepting
donations for Jahnke at Highlands Little Theatre, P.O.

ance will be attended by family,
members of the House and
Senate, American University
professors and faculty, celebri-
ties, talent agents and choreog-

So far Jahnke has $500
toward the cost of the camp, but
$1,200 is needed to attend. To
help him achieve his dream,
HLT is accepting donations.

SEBRING Leadership
Highlands Class of 2005 toured
various aspects of the media
industry offered in Highlands
County Thursday.
The News-Sun was one of
those stops where members of
the class were able to see the
actual production of a newspa-
per, literally from the front door
where they were greeted, to the
back where a special section
featuring the graduates was
printed and pulled off the press
for them to take home.
There are 22 members finish-
ing this year's class. According
to Leadership Highlands
Executive Committee
Chairman Gregg Stupinski, the
group can only enroll 25 people
in the class and if a member
misses more than two classes
they can't graduate. Ever since
Leadership Highlands was
introduced in Highlands County
in 2000, there, are more than
enough applications for the
class and some have to get
turned away. He did add that the
selection committee tries to
make sure and choose leaders
from all three cities to get a
good cross-section of the coun-
ty.
The class starts with an
overnight retreat in September
and meets every month for one
full day. In addition to media,
the group learns about govern-
ment, law enforcement and the
county, agriculture, social serv-
ices, arts and health care.
President of this year's class
is David Flowers; vice presi-
dent is Art Harriman.
Stupinski, a 2001 graduate,
said the purpose of Leadership
Highlands is to "cultivate the
current .iand future leaders in the
conimminiiqI[ "

OopsSausage politics


Recently our
president met with GUEST I
the : leaders of
Mexico and Barbar
Canada in Cancun.
One response from
President -Bush I
found to be a very chilling
observation. Asked about U.S.
Senate and Congressional
debates, he replied to the extent
- that our political system is often
.. akin to making sausage.
Referring to the old sa)mng it
isn't pretty to watch how they
make it. if so you wouldn't eat
it.- ..
I voted tmice for President.
Bush. I have felt badly when it
seems he is attacked when he is
candid and attacked when not
for being insulated or secretive.
The rock, hard place, of a
perennial political squeeze.
Such pressure we apply to our
political leadership can't be a
good thing for the country.
The reason I found the
sausage analogy so disturbing
was that it flashed me back to a
conversation from years ago
with a man from India. I had
read headlines about that nation
testing a nuclear %weapon and
the national media seemed to
report it with .some dismay. I
asked him if he felt his country
,orned any about possible
sanctions from the United.
States.
"Sanctions, don't work." he
replied. "When you stop trad-
ing something because of a
sanction, other counties rush to
provide it."
Now if the mal was right or
wrong I don't know. I do-know
though that it is very easy for'
situations to get oth of hand and
very hard to try and fix when
they do. ,
Take for example the recent
flap over domestic spying by
our government. People fall on
both sides of the issue making
very valid points. Yet many
times I don't wonder if the
debates .are not masking an
uglier problem not often dis-
cussed openly.
It's no secret that certain
large corporations have
engaged ini routine and hard
core surveillance of U.S. citi-
zens that have been deemed
unflattering or problematic for
their image. In a market driven
economy as ours when often
image is valued more than the
reality, the conditions are espe-
cially fertile, for breeding the
loathsome habit. As % ell as nat-
urally occurring in a dictator-
ship economy. Not onl\ are
U.S. citizens spied on to inves-
tigate them if a risk of embar-
rassment to a corporate leader
might happen, but also spying
overtly to create a climate of
fear, intimidation to quash the
target's free speech. In some
cases it has been used for plain


COLUMN

a Bailey


old garden variety
pettiness, paranoia
or revenge by a
disgruntled captain
of industry.
With such tac-
tics, it would be


too far a stretch to believe a dis-
gruntled political person might
not simply share their woes
with a corporate friendly to fix
for them. How ternbl nice and'
neat. Not 6nly do no. hands
appear dirty, no laws prohibit-
ing domestic spying appear
broken, but by effectively out-
sourcing a situation the magical
result is that all clouds have
fled from the horizon. Rather
godlike actually, which might if
left unchecked, delude a person
that perhaps they really are
God! And that "Bruce.
Almights" was based on their
true story.
If an inherent danger of too
cozy corporate friendlies and
government officials exist to
outsourcing of spy exists, it
would be the same way some
have said that sanctions against
a country are circumvented.
:. So are we a nation that really.
does believe that don't ask,
don't tell, coupled with don't
look, don't see mentality is the
way to organize our political
process? Does it really matter
how or where information on us
is obtained? After all, 'most
thieves locked out of a front,
door will certainly go through
the back door if not locked.
I am not complaining against
the business dictum informa-
tion is power. It's a cold hard
fact..Yet a competing cold hard
fact is when laws are routinely
ignored, a society breaks down.
I am troubled at the alarming
pace American privacy is being
lost to schemers to further per-
sonal insider agendas. Allowing
them to spy on, intimidate and
otherwise silence the people
supplants real democracy with
a shabby facade.
A cabal of the few, who if
some of their riskier experi-
ments go awry would merely
shrug it off with impunity.
"Oops. Sorry. My bad. That's
business."
Small solace to the millions
of John and Jane Q. Public
when their children's future has
been stolen and mangled.
If our form of debate with
elected leadership is a process
like making sausage, we need
to be more careful that rat poi-
sons aren't being slipped into it.
The cliche goes that the spouse
is one of the last one in town to
know of an affair going on,
when it comes to the decision
making process of our elected
leaders, the American people
should not be the last ones to
know if they are being

The old story goes that a vis-

local, "How do I get to

was, "Practice, man, practice!"

Minimum-care

standard a must
Editor:'.
No one wants to go to,
or place a loved one in a nurs-
ing home. In fact, any of us
could be in that situation.
Sometimes folks require -care
that only a nursing home ,can
pro% ide. In that case, nursing
home residents deserve good
care so that their days may' be
lived with dignity and comfort.
Residents of nursing homes,
according to research, require
nearly three hours of care per
patient per day for adequate
attention to the' needs of
hygiene. feeding and mobility.
If you consider what time is
required to feed someone three
meals a day, bathe, change
'linen, move from bed to chair
and back, change position in
bed to prevent' bed.sores, three
hours per patient per day is not
a lot: of time. Prior to 2001,
nursing homes w ere required to
staff at about two hours per
patient per da\.
Ini 2001, the Florida .
Legislature mandated through
Senate Bill 1202, a gradual
increase to require 2.9 certified
nursing assistant hours per
nursing home resident per day.
Although the first two increas-
es to 2.6 hours were funded, the
governor and the Legislature
have postponed implementa-
tion of the 2.9 staffing require-
ment for three years in a row.
The governor's proposed budg-
et for Fiscal Year 2006-2007
does not fund the issue this
year and the governor is con-'
sidering repealing the staffing
requirement altogether.
( As a result of the increased,
hours of care, complaints and
untoward incidents have
decreased proving that more
time to care for patients pro-
vides 'better care. The care that
patients deserve is the next-
step. After all, these are our
parents and grandparents. Next,
it could be me. The governor
and the Legislature promised to
fund completely 2.9 hours of
care and they have gone back
on'their word. This seems,,to
me to be a callous disregard for
the care and dignity of our most
frail citizens, elders and the dis-
abled:
Insist, that the 2.9 hours of
care staffing standard be fund-
ed in. the 2006-2007 budget,
and do not allow this mini-
mum-care standard to be taken
out of the law. Please call
Representative Denise
Grimsley, 385-5251, and
Senator J.D. Alexander, 800-
444-9747, and let them know
that we care about our frail and
disabled citizens. Please ask
them to fully fund 2.9 hours per
patient per day in nursing
homes.

oTS OF the end of that year
TH I noticed that some
of my thoughts
Hannum were registering in
German. I was get-
ting it. I once had
the privilege of
attending a concert by the late
violin virtuoso Fritz Kreisler. It
was in a small hall where I
enjoyed a close view. You can
bet he was not wondering
where to put his finger next; his
-eyes were closed and there was
pure ecstasy in his expression.
He was willing the melody, and
his trained reflexes did the rest.
Closer to home: most of us
have learned to drive a car. In'
that process, a time comes
when we no longer have to
think which pedal makes it go
and which makes it stop, and
how much to turn the wheel to


negotiate a certain turn. (Well,
not for everyone: some still
drive their cars into the fronts of
buildings.) But most of us reach
a point where we just think
where we want the car to go and
the necessary manipulations
come automatically.
The classic case for me was
mastering the crosswind land-
ing in an airplane. The process
goes like this: "Gotta get that
upwind wing down just enough
to sideslip the same amount as
the sideways drift. Oops, gotta
feed in just enough opposite
rudder to prevent a turn and
keep the plane tracking straight
for the runway. Now hold it
until you nail the runway with
that upwind wheel, then let the
other two touch."
Understandably, the low-
time pilot is thinking through
each'step of this procedure with

ve got it
sweaty palms. I did. But after
several thousand hours in the
air, my reflexes handled the
details; my will directed the
results.

I have begun to feel that the
reason I do not think and act
"Christianly" in all circum-
stances is lack of practice. If I
would just remind myself upon
every occasion to meet unpleas-
ant relationships with the love
of Christ, thinking more of the
needs of the other, and commit-
ting my own case "to Him who
judges righteously" (1 Peter
3:23), it should in time become
automatic. So far it hasn't. I
need more practice. May all
who read this pray for me!

Is the 'decider' V M m


a great one?

Editor:
As he gave a ringing
endorsement to Secretary
(Donald) Rumsfeld, Bush
reminded us common folk that
"I'm the decider and I decide
what is best...."
This is the same "decider"
who has already plunged this
nation into a conflict from
which we may never recover
and the same sterling judge of
performance who recently
avowed "you're doing a heck-
'uva job, Brownie" to another
of his political hacks.

Editor: .
How do you say thanks to so
many wonderful people 'who
helped us (the AmVets Ladies
Auxiliary and the Sons of
AmVets) at Post 21 put on our
Easter egg hunt, for our local
children. We had 43 children
there and thanks to Taylor
Rental for donating the Air
Walk, the children had a lot of
fun..
The Brown Bag Auction was
a huge success thanks to Ken
Hall and Jim Neel. The Easter
dinner went well thanks to the
volunteers. We have raised
$1,700 for the Make-A-Wish
Foundation, but without all of
you we could not have done it.

'In my more than three decades in government, I

have never seen anything approaching the degree to

which information flow from scientists to the public

has been screened and controlled as it is now.'
JAMES E. HANSEN, director NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 2005


the passion play in Wauchula,
"The Story of Jesus." It was the
-most ,extraordinary presenta-
tion that I have ever seen. The
staging was perfect. It made
one think: that they were really
there in Jerusalem,: 'with
camels, horses, sheep, chickens
and ducks .
The buildings looked very.
authentic; the sandy ground
like the desert. I was particular-
ly impressed by the costumes.
I have never seen any more
authentic, even on television.
The Roman soldiers and their
tunics were a work of art.
From the beginning, (the
birth of Jesus) to his crucifixion
and finally the resurrection,
made you think that you were
living in that time. More people
than I were moved by the pro-'
duction, and I witnessed the
woman sitting in front of me
crying with compassion.
I would recommend anyone
Swho hasn't seen this play to see
it, and if they can't get tickets
for this year, to make it number
one on their agenda next year.
Kudos to all the volunteers that
took part in the play. You did
well:

betrayed.
Asking hard questions that
are returned by solid answers
rather than vague flippancy is
our right that seems to have
been lost. The others can't be
far behind since the "use it or
lose it" law has prevailed
throughout history. It makes lit-
tle sense to me that we are send-
ing troops overseas for free-
dom, as those of us back here at
home appear to be throwing
that very freedom away to comrn-.
mercial tyranny.
At the local level, our Sheriff
(Susan) Benton sought a strate-
gy from Highlands County and
then worked hard to implement
the specific things people from
the community said were the
priorities to them. The amazing
feature of such an act though is
she actually set about doing the
work and reporting measurable
results. A report card that was
volunteered rather than the typ-
ical way of on purpose, speak-
ing in generations. You know
the "God, country, mom, apple
pie, American way song" elect-
ed officials sing. We heard a
very refreshing tune that was
"tell me what you want, we will
do it and here are the results so
far for you to tell us if we are
good or bad in the job." My
point is that for state and
national politics, which song
should not be an option.
We the People, citizens and
press corps are being forced to
rush about tryingto get infor-
mation. Waiting for some
scraps to be tossed out as
though we are a bunch of chick-
ens being fattened up for their
Sunday retirement dinner.
Rather than our rightful place at
the head of the table as being all
lumped together as bums. May
I suggest that it isn't the people


in leadership that are so bad, it
is the process that is so-bad?
Any employer that would
toss new and old hires into an
office and say OK now, I will
be back in four more years or
less and you had better have
done a good job, would soon go
out of business. As this is essen-
tially what we do, then perhaps
We the People will fold eventu-
ally too. In the younger days of
our democracy that may have
worked fine, but these days of
globalization has changed our-
needs while we have failed to
evolve our process with it.
Small wonder the middle class
of America is feeling pinched,
if we are adults now forced to
wear the shoes of childhood.
We should have a specific
agreed national strategy and
knock off the goofy partisan
sand kicking. We need to come
to some agreed upon goals that
are measurable, accountable so
we can get a report card. Right
now it seems we just hire these
folks, tell them to .go in and so
long as we hear of no major
crime against our God, country,
mom or apple pie we will be
thrilled. Moms aren't all in the
kitchen baking pies any more,
shouldn't it be about time for a
new recipe for national suc-
cess?
Corporatism, special inter-
,estism, pleasurism, defeatism,
the ism list of what' has usurped
the People's authority is end-
less. The list of what needs to
be done is not. We don't need
lobbyists and staffers .writing
policy or legislation. We can do
it ourselves and take back our
country and state. Except for
one small thing.
We will have to stop as com-,
munities in focusing on what
we don't want to .see happen
and come up with workable
goals that we do. Reduce these
to a written plan and send the
thing up the chair and expect an

update on how well, specifical-
ly the elected leaders, compiled
with what we want done.
So long as we allow our-
selves as Americans to be divid-,
ed from each other, political
leadership will remain divided
from the People. Like a cable
cut and the flow of power
stopped, we need to find a way
to protect our real democracy
from destruction. Wars, econo-
my, health ... we can all muddle
through that as a democratic
people. Not repairing our polit-
ical process and falling into
tyranny, that would not be
acceptable. Otherwise our chil-
dren might be outraged what we
allowed to happen.
And what would we say to
them?
Oops. Sorry. My bad. That's
politics as sausage."

the basics. because ..

many decades, have
joined together in
mutual support and
advocacy to promote
victims' rights and
services. It also rec-
ognizes the ongoing
efforts of countless
victim service
providers, justice
professionals, and
allied professionals
and volunteers who
selflessly dedicate
'their lives to helping
victims of crime.


For decades, crime victims
and those-who serve them have
joined forces to ensure that all
victims are aware of their
rights, and have access to the
many community- and justice
system-based services that can
help them in the aftermath of
crime. There are many pro-
grams in our community that
provide victims with crisis
intervention, counseling, sup-
'port, safety planning, and advo-
.cacy throughout criminal and
juvenile justice processes; and
our state's victim compensation
program helps victims recover
from the many costs associated
with criminal victimization.

According to John W. Gillis,
director of the Office for
Victims of Crime (OVC) within
the Office of Justice Programs,
U.S. Department of Justice,
"the victims services field has
guaied strength by having a uni-
fied \ ision, a unified voice, and
unified policies and practices to
'promote justice and healing for
crime victims.

"By 'putting victims first,"
our community recognizes that
crime victims are integral to
criminal, tribal, military and


juvenile justice processes,"
Gillis said. "And by speaking
out and sharing the 'power of
their personal stories,' crime
victims help us recognize the
hurt and harm that victims
endure."'

OVC "kicked off' 2006
National Crime Victims' Rights
Week in Washington, D.C.,
with its 4th Annual National
Candlelight Observance on
Thursday and its awards cere-
mony today.
Members of our community
are encouraged to promote
"Victims' Rights: Strength in
Unity" by joining crime victims
and survivors; victim advo-
cates, justice professionals and
many others during National
Crime Victims' Rights Week,
April 23rd to 29th.

Motorcycle specialty tag celebrates two

years of benefiting people with disabilities


Special to the News-Sun
Florida's only specialty
motorcycle license tag has now
raised over $330,000 for pro-
grams that assist people with
disabilities and help prevent
blindness. The "Show Your'
Colors, Show You Care" cam-
paign was .introduced to motor-
cyclists.in April 2004, With the
support of ABATE Florida,
motorcyclists across the state
were encouraged to purchase
the specialty tag, designed in
America's red, white and blues,
for an additional $15 tax
deductible contribution above
the purchase or renewal price.
All proceeds for the special.
tag benefit disability-related


organizations.
The Bikers Care tag hit its
peak month this March, selling
or renewing over 1,500 plates.
Across' Florida, over 22,500,
motorcyclists have showed
,their colors and showed they
cared through supporting the
Bikers Care campaign. Palm
Beach County has been leading
the way as the most active
county in issuing new plates.
The tag's legislation requires.
for The Able Trust, a non-profit
foundation dedicated to assist-
ing Floridians with disabilities
in achieving employment, to
distribute the funds equally to
Prevent Blindness Florida,, the,
Brain and Spinal Cord Injury


Program Trust Fund, the
Personal Care Attendant
Program and the Florida
Association of Centers for
Independent Living. Each
organization has received over
$60,000 to support its programs
since the tag was issued two
years ago..

'The Animal

Fair' memories
Growing up in Northern
Ohio, I had the wonderful
experience of visiting the
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
frequently -
clemetzoo.com. I would like
to believe Cleveland was
one of the first to restructure
their zoo into the natural
habitats that are now com-
mon. Years later, when I
moved to Columbus, Ohio, I
also visited their zoo.
Columbus is famous for Jack
Hanna and their animal nurs-
ery colszoo.org.
The Cleveland Zoo Web
site has video clips of the
snow leopard cub that was
born there June 2005.
Columbus Zoo is the happy
home of a new Northern
koala joey, firsf spotted in its
mother's pouch in August
2005. The father is from the
Milwaukee Zoo and the
mother from the Columbus
Zoo. Babies weigh less than
1 ounce at birth.
When I was in my teens,
my folks and I went to the
San Diego ZooI Iremem-
bered Joan Embery bringing
the animals to visit Johnny
Carson's "Tonight" show,
and looked forward to seeing
some of the stranger and
more exotic animals that she
brought to the world stage.
The Web site
//en. wikipedia. org/wiki/San_
Diego_Zoo has pandas, polar
bears and information about
more than 4,000 animals it is
commissioned to preserve.
In the 1980s, my room-
mate and I checked out the
Milwaukee Zoo while in
town visiting from Madison,
Wis. The highlight of our
day was the polar bears
playing volleyball in their
water tank. The tank has an
underwater viewing area
where %%e could iee the
beatt, js the\ frolicked. The
ihoiught of freezing water
almost sounded refreshing as
we melted in 90-degree
weather: The Web site has
pictures of baby grizzlies
and dali sheep milwau-
'keezoo.org/animal_attrac-
tions.html.
The Lowry Zoo in Tampa
has been named the Family
Friendly Zoo of the Year in
2005.- lowryparkzoo.com.
It has a new baby elephant
to visit, among the 1,600
animals that call the Zoo
home. While taking its virtu-
al tour on its Web site, I got
to see a couple of the
giraffes.
While looking at some of
the animal pictures on the
Lowry Web site, I found out
that "the tiger can only purr
while exhaling. It is capable
of leaping forward up to 16
feet, jumping downward 33
feet and jumping up and
over six foot obstacles. The
tiger is an excellent swim-
mer, and is one of few large
cats that likes to spend time
in the water."
In preparing to write this
column, I searched ,
Dogpile.com for the lyrics to
"The Animal Fair" -
fastq.com/~j bpratt/educa
tion/theme/animals/zoo.html.
Do you remember it?
Now I understand more of
why, when asked how my
day has been, I often
respond, "It's been a zoo
around here."

explained Sandy Spice, one. of the
artists whose works was. on.display.
"Our work is created ia_ hanging art,
like a painting. We try to achie e the
same elements and designs as a paint-
ing would have."
These works stand apart from much
of the "fabric art" produced in recent
years, which uses applique, and strips
or chunks-of materials applied to vari-
ous backgrounds.
Contemporary Quilt Art is construct-
ed like a traditional quilt: A top layer of
material which displays the design, a
layer of batting (padding) for fullness
and depth, and a backing to strengthen
the piece. The three layers are joined
together by stitching, just as in a tradi-
tional quilt, but this is where the simi-
larity ends.
Quilt artists use their sewing
machines as painters use brushes to
sweep across the canvas adding color,
shading, detail and background ele-
ments.
"I use up to 15 different colors of
thread to achieve the effects, I want,"
artist Linn Shimek said. "The details
and background objects are all sewn,
not appliqued. One of my designs had
stones in the background, and I built
them up by free motion stitches."
The best artists use a technique
called "free motion quilting" in which
the operator drops the feed dogs, the
parts of the sewing machine that control
stitch length and width.
"In free motion, you are in control of
your stitch," Shimek explained.
"You change as you move across the
fabric, working on different details.
Free motion fabric art is a very narrow
field few people do it.",
"Linn makes her machine sing,"
Spice said-of her friend Shimek.
"Skillful use of the machine plays a
big part in allowing an artist to create

complex\ designs." Spice said.
Spice. Shimek, Mary Seigrined and
Linda Davis have formed an informal'
group of Highlands County
Contemporary Quilt Artists, and have
been meeting and working together for
the past three years. While each pro-
duces her own individual type of fabric
art, they enjoy the camaraderie.
One of the group members,
Seigfried, creates whimsical sculptures
she calls "Wraptures." She starts with
tn ordinary object, like "a Barbie doll,
and wraps it in fabric and decorations
to create a character that springs from
her imagination. Fantastic animals are
another favorite.
"I try to find a subject that is out of
character 'City Chicken' is one

back again and again.
Spice and Shimek have been tradi-
tional quilters for more than 20 years.
While they still create an occasional
quilt "mostly for gifts for family and
friends" Shimek said that the chal-
lenge of creating fabric art that looks
like large watercolor paintings has
"taken over her life."
Inspired by the paintings of Georgia
O'Keefe, Shimek confessed to, being,
"possessed by large flowers." They are
her current passion when it comes to
creating her own designs. This is what
distinguishes contemporary quilt art
from traditional quilting..

admire flowers sent for their opening exhibit at Highlands Art League's Yellow House
gallery in Sebring. The quilted art pieces by Shimek is being raffled at the gallery.


". We are not using patterns, we are
.ding our own designing." Shimek said.
"The ideas come from within."
While inspired b\ artworkss, Shimek
creates all of her designs from living
flowers.
When a blossom catches her eye, she
takes a digital photograph and then
edits the image on her computer to
achieve the look she wants. Using
poster format, she prints onto sections
of her chosen fabric, which are glued to
card stock. The fabric sections are then
matched exactly to get an even image
for the final large piece.
Spice's works are more geometric in
form) but suggestive of Native
American designs and African tribal
masks. Like her name, Spice's color
palate is rich and earthy browns,
reds, golds, accented with sharp white
highlights. The backgrounds are subtle
and intricately worked to tie the ele-
ments together:
The exhibit will be on display for the
month of April in HAL's Yellow House
gallery on Lakeview Drive in Sebring.
This is Contemporary Quilt Art's first
group show, and these gorgeous origi-
nal works of art are affordably priced.
Spice said there is a lot of interest in.
this art form around the country, but not
much being done here in Central
Florida. The women would like to
expand their group.
"We would welcome other people
with like interests to join us, for discus-
sions, and sharing ideas and tech-
niques," Spice said.
Highlands Art League has established
a monthly Quilt Artist Focus Group to
encourage and support contemporary
quilt artists. Anyone interested in learn-
ing more about the techniques involved
in designing and creating contemporary
fabric art can call Spice at 465-0712.

All experience valley of depression


"Elijah was a man with a
nature like ours..." James 5:17.
When we compare our lives and
experiences with that of Elijah,
our seems rather drab and
insignificant compared with
his.
Didn't he stand before Ahab
the King and denounce him
face to face? Didn't he lift a
dead boy to life again? Wasn't
he victorious over four hundred
prophets of Baal at Mt. Carmel?
Didn't he carry the key to heav-
en's door for over three years?
And didn't he exchange worlds.
in a chariot of fire and whirl-
wind?
But brace yourself. There is
only a short distance fr6m the
mountaintop of victory to the
valley of despair. The bible
says of Elijah, "and he came
and sat under a juniper tree."
The victorious, hard fighting


prophet was very
much like us after all.
He too got down in
the dumps and felt
the dregs of defeat. .
Sooner or later we all $k
have sat under the
juniper tree. We have
all known our valleys

failures. We have

defeat. Maybe some
illness, or a rebel- VIT
lious child, a moral
lapse, a wreaked Verlon
marriage, a financial ""
set back. They come
in various forms and we like
Elijah feel alone, desperate and
like a failure.
How God dealt with his
prophet gives us art insight into
his love and care. Elijah was

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
April 20, 2001: Avon Park
native Hal McRae made his
managerial debut for the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays, los-
ing 9-1 to Boston. Having
managed for the Kansas
City Royals from 1991-
9494, the team for which
he played in the 1970s and
'80s, the Devil Rays posi-
tion was his second oppor-
tunity to prove himself at
the helm.
20 Years Ago
April 20, 1986: The Lake
"Placid girls softball team
tied Hardee for the .
Heartland Conference
championship by beating
the Wildcats 6-2. Both
teams finished the season
with 5-1 conference
records. The Green
Dragons finished with, an
overall record of 11-7 and
won three of their last four
regular season games.
Fifth-inning doubles from
Jackie Carpenter and Kris
Kessel' accounted for four
runs.
30 Years Ago
April 22, 1976: DeSoto
knocked Avon Park out of a
tie for the Heartland
Conference title, beating
.the Red Devils 2-1. Both
teams scored a run each
on errors and the Bulldogs
plated one more with a
double down the first base
line in the third inning. Billy
Young got the loss, going
the distance and giving up
four scattered singles and
the double. Mike Minard
had three singles for AP.

Devils knock out Streaks



to clinch spot in playoffs


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
PALMETTO -'To say Avon Park, has
Sebring's number this season might not be com-
pletely accurate. After all, each contest'between
the rival schools this season has come down to a
handful of defensive plays and close calls going
this way or that. There has been too narrow a
margin to say for certain.
It's probably ife to call it a trend, though,
after the Devils edged the Streaks for the third
time this season' with a 4-3 -Win in the District 10-
4A semifinals' on Thursday.
"My hair gets grayer and grayer when we play
Sebring," said Avon Park coach Mike Cobb,
whose team clinched a playoff spot and will play
for the district title tonight. "It's a hard working
group of girls we've got here and they're young.
They. need something like this to jump start them
into next year."


When the game started, it was clear the Streaks
were looking to turn up the emotional intensity,
. and the Sebring girls found another notch on the
volume dial in the first inning. .
Jumping on the scoreboard first was top prior-
ity for Sebring, and RBI machine
Avon Park Kendall Carson was happy to
oblige. With pitcher Nikki Helms
on second and Sami Lower on third
Sebriig after a pair of singles, Carson
turned on a pitch for a double that
put the Streaks.on top 2-0 and kept
the dugout screams at full blast.
Like the season series in a nutshell, Avon Park
had an immediate answer. Leadoff batter Julie
Lamb reached on an error and starting pitcher
Amanda Tindell moved her to second with a per-
fect bunt, bringing up the torrid Heather Barnes.

By the flite the Lady
Pjintler's pl.\ their Inis ever
state ltornjiment game against Gulf Coast
Communin[ College on May 5 in
Kissimmee, it N.% ill ha:. e been one day
short of-a month since they last stepped
onto the diamond for a real game.
That's j lot of down time to fill, so
coach Carlos:Falla and the rest of the
South Florida Community College athlet-
ic department have oouen creative. The
baseball team, which narrowly missed
out on making thei postseason for the
third straight season, has been recruited
to help the softball players get ready for'
their postseason debut.
On Tuesday at 3 p.m., the baseball
players will play a softball game against


the Lady Panthers as a way to help the
girls get ready for state and also to sim-
ply help break up the monotony of a
month of practice. ,
"It's going to put pressure on them. '
The guys are much faster apd stronger,"
Falla said. "We're going to,go at it harder
Softball to throw them out.
"We might get beat, we
team to might not, but it's going to

team ery, The ball is going to come
Tuesday up (instead of down) and its
T3 going to come from a whole
at 3 p.m. different release point. The
first three or four times, they're going to
struggle with-'it." ..
Falla said there may be more practice
games between the two squads, with
increasing stress put on his team's
.defense like putting a runner on base
to start the inning -- in later meetings.


"We'll just keep adding pressure with
the baseball guys 1Which is going to make
it more difficult for us to get it done,"
Falla said. "It's going to be fun for both
sides. They can get an idea of what it's
like to hit a softball and we can get an
idea of what it's like to try to throw a guy
out at 60 feet."
Another way the Lady Panthers came
up with to help make the layoff go faster
is to take a little vacation. The team did-
n't step on the field last week.
"We had some nicks and cuts and
bruises that we took care of, plus it gave,
us an opportunity to get caught up on our
classwork," Falla said. "We needed some
time off. With all those weeks from
January until week before last, you get
tired."
Falla could see a difference in his
players after the break. "It's back to
being fun," he said, adding that the prac-

Highlands and

Polk counties

to battle it out

Challenge Cup to
be held May 20-21
By SCOTT DRESSEL
S .*I . : E J .i. .
SEBRING There's noth-
ing like a good rivalry.
That's why Sebring. Golf
Club pro Tom McClurg is fired
up about the upcoming
Highlands/Polk Counties
Challenge Cup, which will
send 24 local golfers to Barto%\v
-,r Golf Club to take on t\\o dozen-
of the best Polk-County has to"'
offer in a Ryder Cup-style
event May 20-21.
What makes the Challenge
Cup a little different, however,
is the fact that a division has
been. created especially for
what McClurg called the "Joe
Handicap" players,
In addition tolthe gross divi-
sion, which will pit pros and
scratch amateurs against each
other, there will also be a net
division where players can use
Uip to n 18 handicap.
"I think t[id'S going to bethe
real fun parn of' it," McClurg
said of the gross division. "The
(Highlands County) Rydei- Cup
eliminates about 80 percent of
the golfers in the county, where
this, thing eliminates maybe 10
or 20 percent."
The qualifying round for the
local team is April 29 at
Sebring Golf Club. The low 12
gross plus one alternate and the
low 12 net plus one alternate
will make the team.
"We've had 20 sign up so far
and had a couple say that they.
will play that haven't signed up
officially. We need at least 24
to have it," McClurg said,
adding that most of the golfers
signed up are in the scratch
division, so he's hoping more
average golfers will sign up.
"If we can get some of the
amateurs involved, this thing is
just going to blossom like the
Ryder Cup has here," he said.
The entry fee is $50, which
includes golf, cart and -lunch

The Inlersporl facing team "on the LMIP2 class and finished second ower-
all in the 12 Hours of Sebring.


Defending LMP2 champion
Intersport team isn't cowering
Special to the News-Sun
Intersport Racing hardly flinched last year
when Porsche announced its entry into the
American Le Mans Series LMP2 class with a
factory program.
* So it should come as no surprise that the
defending class champions won't cower
before Acura either.
Acura announced last week that it will con-,
test the American Le Mans Series starting in
2007. Multiple Acura-powered LMP2s from
manufacturers such as Lola and Courage will'


debut at the 55th Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring. That, of course, is the same race in
which Intersport Racing won the P2 class and
finished second overall last month, the high-
est finish ever for any P2 car in America's
greatest sports car race.
"Acura will be a great addition to the
.Series," said defending class champion and
team owner Clint Field. "When a factory team
comes on board, it provides a level of stabili-.
ty.
"For a small team like us, we have to use
everything as best as possible, and we do
quite well with what we have."
There is a rich history of privateer teams

Blasting her third triple in two
games, Barnes cut the lead iri

Lander 'stole second and third
and slid underneath a tag at
home after a wild pitch to put
the Red Devils up for good.
Not willing to go away qui-

Devils plenty to worry about in
the fifth. After the Devils added
another run in the third to make
it 4-2, the Streaks came out
swinging. Hannah Shoop,

attack with singles, loading the
bases for Priscilla Adams.
Adams ripped a single to left

The Red Devil defense;,
which has.been reliable all sea-,

to Barnes at short and another
fly to left stranded the bases'
loaded, and the Streaks walked'
off the field disappointed.
Sebring had a final shot to tie
it in the seventh with Shoop at
third and no outs, but Tindell
bore down and induced two'
ground balls and a popout to:
end the game.

Miallo)r Drooger hits a pitch from Christina Morrow during SFCC's practice on \lednesda .


CAGED.
Continued from ID
tices this week have been a
return to the past.
"We just went back to the
basics on e% ei thing. went
back to all the drills we did at
the beginning of the season.
We're just working on funda-
mentals all this week."
The long wait before state
isn't easy on the coach or the
players, particularly for sophlo-
more pitcher C h r st i na
Morrow, who threw\ the first
pitch in Panther history last
season and will throw the first
pitch in that first state game.
"I can't wait," she said:.
"We've had so much down
time with a lot of practicing


and no games. Right now,
-e' re just focused on getting
\\ here <\ e need to be."
Falla said making it to the
state tournament in just the
prog ram's second season was a
pleasant surprise and was way
ahead of the schedule he had in
his head.
"I figured it would take four
or five years to get there, just
knowing the conference we're
in. The four teams that leave
iOur conference are still there
Saturday runght and usually. one
or two are still there on Sunda\
battling for the state champi-
onship.":
Now that they're in, Falla
wants his team to show they
truly belong among the state's -
elite.


"We played six or seen of
the best teams in the ;iatv ij.'
,beat them. If we show up with
our A game like we did in
those games, we've got a great
chance at going a good dis-
tance into that tournament," he
said.
. "I'm not going to predict
that we'll win it, but I want to
be there more than one day. I
want us to go up there, win a
couple of games and evefi the
ones we lose, we're
respectable."
Morrow 'is also'hoping the
Panthers can extend their stay-
at state for as long as possible.
"It will be sad when it's over
because that means I'll go
home the next day," she said.
"I'll miss this place."
