Batz tapped as new fire chief


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Lt. Brad Batz, who's
been with the Sebring Fire
Department since 1990, was nominat-
ed to succeed Chief Ken Haynes, who
retires May 31.
"You have to be firm but fair,' Batz
said during an interview Monday with
the fire chief selection committee, cit-
ing outgoing Haynes as his best
example of what a supervisor should
be. "Chief Haynes has really showed
me a lot in his ability to listen ... to
have an open-door policy."
Haynes, who had no voting power,
attended the open meeting and said
Batz, 36, has the support of the
department.
The committee Margie Rhoades
and John Griffin (both city council
members), City Administrator Bob
Hoffman, and City Clerk Kathy Haley
- voted unanimously to elevate Batz,


who was the only
"in-house" appli-
cant.
Had they not
selected Batz, the
committee would
have opened the
application pro-
cess to non-city
employees. BATZ
"'We expected
more applicants,"
Hoffman said after the meeting,
explaining that other qualified lieu-
tenants declined to apply after the city
decided to make the chief's position
an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. job.
The change from shift work to stan-
dard hours Monday through Friday
would have interfered with side busi-
nesses, which are dependent on an
officer's days off between shifts.
Haynes, under the current system,
works a shift rotation as do the fire-


fighters at his department.
Mayor George Hensley Jr. joined
the committee in questioning Batz.
'Hensley, who wasn't a member of the
selection committee, will recommend
Batz as Haynes replacement' at the
council's May 2 meeting.
Eschewing his bunker gear, Batz
wore a shirt and tie to the interview,
during which he discussed his back-
ground, career high and.low points,
achievements, and leadership style.
."I grev. up Io blocks away from
the 135th Sirect Mianii-Dade Fire
Department," Batz said, 'explaining
that his career, more or less, began
when he was a member of the Fire
Explorers program for children. "I
was one of those little kids who said
he wanted to be a fireman and actual-
ly stuck with it."
When asked if being a fire chief
had always been a goal of his, Batz

Banquet brings laughter, tears and $53,924.25


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Lake
Placid High School's FFA chap-
ter had a lot to celebrate
Saturday night at its annual
awards dinner in the school's
commons.
The chapter was rated 24th'
out of 280 chapters in the state.
At last summer's FFA con-
vention, it brought home 11
awards, including eight individ-
ual proficiency awards.
Proficiency awards are won
by students who spend time
after school working in a partic-,
ular agriculture specialty.
For example, Quinton and
Zach. Birge were both state
finalists in landscaping.
Melinda Franklyn was a state
winner in small animal care,
and Tyler Loft was a state win-
ner in forage production.
The chapter was a power-
house on the livestock circuit.
Many of its members attended
jackpot shows in the months
leading up to the county fair.
In jackpot shows an animal
does not have to be sold, so stu-
dents can gain much needed
experience in livestock show-
manship by working with the
same animal over time. By the
time the student and animal
team arrive at the Highlands
County Fair, they are both able


to do their best.
Following are some of the
students and the awards they
earned over the course of the
year.
Nine members showed hogs
at the Highlands County Fair,
which had 95 hog entries this
year.
The Lake Placid FFA senior
chapter took top honors when
Randall Gillard's hog was
named Grand Champion Hog,
and Grand Champion Carcass.
Rachel Barber was named
the overall Grand Champion
Hog Exhibitor..
Brittany Guadino, Roxanne
Landers, Tia Hodges and
Shelby Hill, who isn't yet in
high school, each showed
lambs at various shows during
the year. At the South Florida
Fair's lamb show, Guadino was
Grand .Champion Senior
Showman, and Hill was named
Grand Champion Junior
Showman.
All four girls received blue
ribbons for their lambs at the
state fair.
Seven members exhibited
beef heifer at the Highlands
County Fair. They swept the
field.
Shannon Prescott had the
Reserve Grand Champion
Senior Heifer Record Book.
Hill had the Grand Champion

Junior Heifer Record Book.
The record book is a journal
that is a precise history of the
animal in question. From its
breeding, to its diet to its med-
ical history, the book must be
accurate and all-inclusive.
Barber was named Grand
Champion Groomer and Grand


Champion Heifer.
Leah Harvell, president of
Lake Placid High School's FFA
chapter, was named -Grand
Champion Senior Heifer
Showman, Reserve Grand
Champion Groomer, and had
the Grand Champion Senior
Record Book. She also was


named the Grand Champion
Beef Heifer Exhibitor.
Jamie Carroll, who showed
the FFA chapter's heifer, Panda,
won the Reserve Grand
Champion Heifer. Panda is an

Developer



withdraws



proposal

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
Attorney Warwick "Bud" Furr, representa-
tive of Roland Dilley and Son Inc., brought to
the city council two topics, for discussion
Monday.
First on his agenda was the consideration
of the purchase of the Dilley property off of
State Road 64 across from the Avon Park
Executive Airport.
"Due to canker found in November of
2005, Dilley's property is now nothing but a
wasteland," Furr said. The th6 %ing business
had to be burnt as miindaied by the .U.S.
Department of Agriculture when canker is
found.
A developer, who had previously proposed
an elaborate gated community, has with-
drawn; but due to many serious issues regard-
ing the airport, Furr said the Dilleys have pro-
ceeded to move forward.
"They have filed 'a request for rezoning
from agricultural to medium density residen-
tial with the county," he said.
Even though the city is not a part of 'this
particular equation anymore, Furr said, "We
just wanted to give them a status report
because the same issues that prevented this
development the incompatibility with the
runway and adjacent land are still there,
and we wanted to make them aware that they
will eventually, at some point, have to decide
how they will handle these issues."
John Barben, chairman of the Avon Park
Airport Communit3 Rede\ elopineni Agency,
said of the seven uggetuons piceented by
Furr, two were not acceptable
"He had some good ideas, but closing the
airport or >hortening the runinv, are not
options for economic reasonss" he said.
"People really have no idea the positive
economical impact the airport has on this
city," he said. "Just recen.ri,. Senator J.D.
Alexander said the airport is an 'economic
driver' and told me to call him if we needed
any help."
Barben said that Furr's suggestion of
extending the runway to the southwest was a
good one "except that power lines would
then have to be moved, which would be a big
deal." He also said that by changing the direc-
tion of the runway, they would only be mov-

Write this down: Writing scores have gone up


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Scores for the
writing' portion of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test have arrived. The news for
coihty schools has educators,
students and parents dancing in
the aisles as scores have raised
substantially across the district.'
In order to pass muster with
the state this year, students had
to score a 3.5 out of six points.
Only 56. percent of fourth-
graders scored that well last
year. This year 72 percent did;
an increase of 16 percent.
Last year "73 percent: of
eighth-graders scored 3.5 on the
test; this year 79 percent did -
an increase of six percent.
Some schools catapulted
ahead.
Lake Country Elementary
School improved its students'
writing scores by 35 percent.
Park Elementary School, which
has been fighting to break away
from a "D" rating for several
years now, improved its stu-
dents' scores by 31 percent.
"I'm really thrilled for my
schools and my teachers,"
Wally Cox, school superintend-
ent, said. "It's the teachers who
make it happen, with the sup-
port from school and district
administrators."
Joyce McClelland, pnnciplal
at Park Elementary, couldn't
stop smiling Tuesday. "We're
.floating," she said. then added.
"I attribute our success to our


teachers. They spent the sum-
mer training to teach writing,
and on their own time, not on
days under regular contract.
"So our teachers were pre--
pared coming into the year. And
they were passionate about
helping our students. They were
so motivated, and worked so
well as a team, that their stu-
dents couldn't help but rise .to
the challenge."
But it wasn't teachers alone,
McClelland hurried to add.
Parents were just as important.
For example, when fourth-
grade teachers created work-
shops for parents, which were
conducted at night, parents
turned out to gain insight and
help.
And when fourth-grade
teachers created a two-day-a-
week after-school tutoring pro-
gram, parents responded by
making sure their children
attended.
For 12 weeks, Andrea
Albritton, Linda Slicker, Gail
Penfield, Erin Longshore, and
Tracy Lee tutored about 45 stu-
dents from 2-4:15 p.m. two
days every week.
"You know those kids
weren't always thrilled to be
there," McClelland said, with a
soft smile. "It was parental
commitment that kept them
coniing back time after time ".
Another element that helped
students do better. was the spe-
cial care taken to support spe-
cial education students.


..'.'N o,"


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Joyce McClelland, left, principal of Park Elementary School, and Josefina Quinones, assistant principal,
stand by a banner given to them from the language arts team. The congratulations are for the school's
leaping improvement of 31 percent in the writing portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.


Brenda Anderson and
Aliceann Andrus, special edu-
cation teachers, made sure that
their students were not only
academically prepared, but had
whatever special equipment or
support they needed.
For example, some special
education students require a
scribe in order to % rite down
their thoughts. Anderson and
Andrus made sure a scribe was
at the iest site on time.
At Hill-Gustat Middle


School, where students
improved performance by six
percent, Principal Dave
Robinson is equally excited.
"We're so pleased," he said.
Not only had 86 percent of the
school's students scored 3.5 on
the test, 70 percent had scored
4.0 or higher.
"It took a language arts team
and three years of hard work,"
he said, and credited a writing
program designed by the late'
Janet Pipon for much of the


success.
Even at Sun 'N, Lake
Elementary School. a solid "A"
school, the mood was opti-
mistic, although it slipped five
points, from 73 to 68 percent of
students scoring 3.5 or higher.
"We're not making any
excuses," Diane Lethbridge, the
school's principal, said. She has
already had i"No excuses" but-
tons made for teachers to wear,
and she sees this as an opportu-
nity to rise to a challenge.


"We're not going to waste
time with making excuses. Our
language arts team has already
met and defined different areas
where we need to refocus,
including changes in materials,
scheduling, and retraining
staff," she said.
One reason she is so opti-
mistic, she added, is that the
school hasn't actually lost
ground. While the school hasn't
grown the overall number of
students scoring 3.5, the num-
ber of students scoring 3.7 or
higher has remained the same,
so the school has a solid plat-
form from which to launch into
a newly re-calibrated program.
With schools helping each
other .-- for example, Park
Elementary School teachers
were able to attend an important
writing workshop held at Lake
Placid Elementary School, and
Avon Elementary School is
looking into adopting Park's
tutorial program for its own stu-
dents educators throughout
the district brim with enthusi-
asm.
They aren't the only ones.
"We're enjoying this," said
McClelland, "but it is the chil-
dren's' excitement and the look
on their faces (that really warms
your heart). It's wonderful to
see the children's pride and
need to share. They are coming
up to anyone just to tell them
how well they did on the test." ,

Former teacher charged with


molesting 13-year-old student


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun ,
SEBRING An Avon Park'
woman stands accused of sexu-
ally molesting ,a student when
she taught band in Okeechobee
County.
According to the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office, Shanando Ashley
Jacksofi, 30, allegedly began
molesting a 13-year-old girl
shortly after starting work in
October 1998 as band director
at Yearling Middle School.
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies assisted Detective Ted
Van Deman of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office in serv-
ing an arrest warrant on Jackson
last week.
Jackson is charged with sex-
ual battery on a child, lewd and
lascivious battery, and lewd and
lascivious or indecent act. Total
bond was set at $100,000.
The investigation began Feb.
10 when a former student, now


an adult, said that Jackson
touched her inappropriately and
engaged in sexual activity with
her eight years ago and for sev-
eral years after that, allegedly at
both the school and Jackson's
home.
After leaving Yearling
Middle School in 2004, Jackson
was hired on Aug. 2, 2004, by
the Highlands County School
District.
She taught for a year at Hill-
Gustat Middle School.
Principal David Robinson at
HGMS said Jackson did a "fan-
tastic job" during her time
there.
She resigned on June 10,
2005, to pursue a career in law
enforcement and was working
at the Avon Park Correctional,
Institution. That employment
has been terminated, prison
officials said.
Lee Dixon; Okeechobee
County assistant superintendent
of schools for administrative


services, said the allegations
came as a surprise.
Jackson came with good col-
lege references and grades from
Valdosta State University in
Georgia. She started Oct. 15,
'1998, and proved effective in
each evaluation.
There were, very few com-
plaints, he said. She enhanced
the band program, got kids
involved,, arid even helped
recruit new teachers from her
alma mater.
This most recent case is the
third time in the past 15 years
that teachers in the Okeechobee
system have been accused of
inappropriate behavior, Dixon
said.
The others were male teach-
ers, once in the early 1990s and
again in the 1997-1998 school
year, Dixon said. The first
involved male victims and led
to a confession. The second
involved three female victims
and led to a conviction.

County contracts for




Cappuccino at libraries


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Stacy Leaphart (right), who teaches first grade at Sun 'N Lake Elementary School, swears by her Smart
Board. The cutting-edge technology uses a computer, projector (left on the table), and wired 'smart'
board to bring the Internet into the classroom. Vicki Payne (left) is an intern who plans on lobbying for
her own Smart Board when she finishes school and becomes a teacher.


Smart boards lead to heads up thinking


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Stacy
Leaphart,' her intern Vicki
Payne, and their 20 first-grade
students love their Smart
Board. They all work together
at Sun 'N' Lake Elementary
School.
"It's totally changed the way
I teach," Leaphart said.
In fact, the school has
embraced the new technology,
including the Parent Teachers
Organization, which has raised
money to buy some in addition
to those provided by the district
and the school's principal,
Diane Lethbridge.
The majority of the school's
teachers have at least a modi-
fied version of the equipment.
That is because the full package
- consisting of a Smart Board,
a lap top computer, projector
and speakers costs about
$6,000, so some creative
rethinking had to be done to
provide a greater number.
The technology provides two
major improvements to the
classroom. One is the access to


the vast reservoir of educational
resources available oh. the
Internet and the ability to bring
them via computer 'directly to
the students., The other is the
excitement it engenders in chil-
dren.
Teachers currently each have
a computer work station in their
classroom. And while the Smart
Board is a valuable edition -
students can move letters with
their fingers, and wnrite- and
erase with "magic" pencils and.
erasers the classroom's regu-
lar white board works just as
well. The students simply use
the computer mouse instead of,
their fingers, and write and
erase with the classroom's regu-
lar markers and erasers.
This means that more teach-
ers can be provided with
enough technology to take
advantage of the most impor-
tant advances, Internet access
and classroom participation.
"It's amazing," -Leaphart
said, "how well behaved the
children have become. No one
wants to lose a turn 'at the
screen."


It is easy to see why.
The system provides a sound
track with each lesson, includ-
ing read aloud stories; voice
over prompts, sound effects and
music.
Because students see, hear
and touch, the technology
opens up countless new oppor-
tunities, including simulated
field trips, Leaphart said.
Another ad antnice is the size
of the images, as big as the chil-
dren, they grab and hold'the
student's attention,
Leaiphurt is enthtsiasiic
about the' equipment She
recently gave a presentation
before the school board
extolling its virtues. She hopes
to create a folder of lesson plans
from which other teachers can
draw.
For example, she said the
elementary arithmetic textbook
series used by the, county has
lesson plans for each of its texts
posted on the Internet.
In fact, she said, the amount
of. free material available to
teachers is mind boggling.

SEBRING Visitors to the
county libraries soon may
notice a familiar aroma.
In the past two weeks, coun-
ty commissioners have
approved two requests to either
purchase coffee vending.
machines or allow library sup-
porters to provide the beverage
to library patrons.
On Tuesday, commissioners
approved a
proposal to
have the
Avon Park t.
Friends of
the Library

Gold ,Cup

bre wing
and dis-
pensing service.
Mary Myers, director of the
county, library ,' steiim. .id it's
a way to bring in users and give
them something many of the
commercial bookstores, like
Barnes & Nble. have offered
for years.
Almost all new libraries have


it now, she told commissioners.
It's a self-service cash-operated
machine that brews coffee, and
dispenses it.
The county has already
bought a machine for the Lake
Placid library; Sebring's
machine is on order.

Equipment needed
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart had reservations about
the proposal when she first
heard it two weeks ago, espe-
cially when she figured the
county should use its funds to
provide facilities and not
amenities.
Each coffee machine was
budgeted at $5,000 each for the
machine-and supplies.
For the Avon Park Library,
since the support group would
provide the coffee service,
Myers asked to reallocate the
$5.,000 for various pieces of
equipment.
. Commissioners approved
chairs for a study corral, an
auditorium speaker and public
address system for the meeting
room, theater sound and a larg-
er projection screen for the
mo\ ie ,,erie, program, and eight
flat-panel computer monitors


for the Internet stations.

Liability concerns
Bob Jamison, deputy clerk of
the courts, askid if the library
needed to bid the service out
and if Myers had dealt with any
potential liabilities from people
actually serving the beverage
on site.
Rick Helms, director of the
Office of Management and
Budget, said the Friends of the
Library would donate money
back to the library from coffee
sales. However, County
Attorney Ross Macbeth said the
county needs to have an agree-
ment, so Helms said he could
bring one back to the commis-
sion.
Jamison said it would also be
important to have a certificate
of insurance on file, in case
someone gets sick from any-
thing they drink.
While commissioners agreed
that they would like to have an
agreement, Commissioner Bob
Bullard remarked that it was
sad having to askif citizens
would sue the county for pro-
viding a service.

Expo to engage teenagers with


healthy alternatives for life


By KEVIN J. SHUT

SEBRING Teenagers
hang out at malls.
So, the. Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Alliance is going to
Lakeshore Mall for Teen Expo
2006.
S"That's where the kids want
to hang out," Susan Buelow,
alliance coordinator, said.
From 2-6 p.m. Saturday, May
6, Highlands County teenagers
and their families will have the
opportunity to be entertained by
aivariety of performers from
Christian rappers "A Few Good
Men" to a martial arts demon-
stration by Val Henrr and tod

area teens engaged in health.

"It's about their futures."
Buelow said, e\plainirig the
alliance's message. "lt's abott.
minkiig good choices and .not
getting sidetracked."
. While pre\enting pre'nanc\ "
i. the ultimate goal. Bueloh\
said her mission includes edu-
cating children and their parents
about associated behavior -
alcohol, drug usage and truancy
- that could warn of potential
journeys down a negative path.
"Why-risk it?" is not only a


hypothetical question posed to
teens who learn the. ramifica-
tions of their actions, it's this
year's expo theme.
"We address good and bad
risks," Buelow said. "We talk
about good and bad friends."
Some nsks haje short-terln
ramifications, such ;as playing
hooky and. getting detention
when caught. Others are felt,
down the road such as having
unprotected sex, which could
result in pregnancy, sexually
transmitted disease, or both.
Buelow said babies cost
about $120 a week for the par-
ents, ard tax payers spend more
thjn $82 1.000 annually to sub-
sidize 80 percent of theteen
parents in Highlands County
who, require 'financial services
purchasing car seats, WIC,
,and health care.
"It's like I told the Rotary
Club, 'You think you don't
have an thing to do with teen
pregnancy\ but you pay for it
through your taxes,"' she said.
Blielow said Highlands
County ranks 23rd in the state
for teen ,pregnancies and the
state is sixth nationwide.
"Everything comes to a head
in May," she said, explaining
that it's the last chance to give


teens the information they need
before they leave for college or
*enjoy the summer. '"I think
teens are very receptive to this,
kind of message."
The message at Teen Expo
will be subtle, Buelow said,'.
In addition to pertonnances,
area 'businesses jnd organiza-
tions will highlight their teen-
or fanil -oriented programs as
%%ell as pro ide actiiitie.s to
engage those who stop ,at a
booth.
Buel o said the alliance is
abstinence-based but when
teens ask about birth control she
gi\es them factual ansi'.eis.
"It used to be boas \'.ere
ignore interested in se.' Buelhiv .
said, explaining ho\\ times have,
changed ho\\ educators tackle
the seemingly tough topic.
"Now, girls are more aggressive
in risk) beha\ ior."
And, despite a desire to try,
she said parents often miss .the
opportunity for candid sex
talks.
"I think parents today try
harder (than parents did 20-30
years ago) to address these.
issues," Buelow said. "But they
don't continue to explain the
'whys.'"

Homeowners helped by visiting volunteers, Habitat


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING --Many hands do
make light work.
Saturday was living proof
when a team of Americorps
National Civilian Community
Corps members, Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity
volunteers, a five-member team
from Sebring Health and
Wellness Center, and local resi-
dents joined forces on a Habitat
home.
Karen Gammage, publicity
director of Habitat, said that
when they arrived at the site
there was nothing more than a
. foundation.
"After a prayer at 8 a.m. and
briefing by the construction
manager, Alan Ball, we began
working at about 8:30 a.m. -
and by 1 p.m. the home was
totally framed out, trusses were
up, and all the perimeter walls
were in place," she said.
"I was ecstatic totally
overwhelmed and completely
pleased," Gammage said. "This


is what you call a 'Community
Day.'"
Tracey Hughes, media repre-
sentative/partnership initiator
for the Corps' southeast branch,
said that the group of nine
members, ages 18 to 24, have
been working in Highlands
County for a month or so help-
ing Habitat.
"We've worked on 10 differ-
ent sites, doing everything from
digging out foundations to put-
ting on the final touches on
houses," she said. "It's been
really exciting and the feed-
back and support has been won-
derful."
Hughes said that various area
restaurants, church groups, and
other organizations have
brought food for them every
day, for which they are very
thankful.
"The Red Hatters made lunch
for us Friday with little notes in
each," she said. "We all loved
that it was really special."
Community Day was
arranged by Hughes, with the


assistance of Rachelle Pickens,
in order to increase awareness
of Habitat.
"We wanted to bring out
some new faces and get some
new arms to swing hammers,"
said Dave Ponce, Corps' team.
leader.
Wednesday will be the final
day for the Corps' work in
Highlands County. From here
they will head to Slidell, La.,
for hurricane relief efforts.
Ponce said the team helped
run an American Red Cross
shelter immediately following
Hurricane Katrina.
"We lived and worked in the
shelter helping .cook for vic-
tims, offering shoulders to cry
on, listening to them, and basi-
cally doing whatever we could
to help them," he said. "This
trip was physically taxing, but
that one was intensely taxing
emotionally."
Homeowner, Linda David-
son, couldn't have been more
appreciative for the efforts of


the Corps members and all the
others who came out for
Community Day. Having been
on the waiting list for a Habitat
home for two years and work-
ing at accumulating her 400
hours of required sweat equity,
she was overwhelmed with
emotion as the day unfolded.
"It makes me cry," she said.
"I can't believe this is really
going to happen. God has
blessed me, and all of these
people who I don't even know
have come to help."
Davidson will live in her new
home with her son, Noel
Davidson, 14, and will share it
with others as well.
"My brother, Perry Bright
who lives in a group home at
Arc, will be coming to stay on
weekends," she said. "And my
two grandchildren, Alex and
Anna McConniel, will be here a
lot too.
Alex, 3, even hammered a
nail into the door, helping to
build 'the house, Davidson said.

side of the airport. Doing so
would solve one problem, yet
create another of the same kind.
Ultimately, Barben said,
there are issues that need to be
ironed out, but they are working
on them.
"Jimmy Dilley and I talked
about this the other day and we
both agree that the citrus issues
and land use issues will work
out somehow," Barben said.
Both serve on the Florida Citrus
Canker Technical Advisory

'Pool King' breaks



out on his own


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID After
working for other people and
building pools for 36 years,
Robert and Kim Burroughs
,moved to Lake Placid and
opened their own business,
Aquatic Design.
They moved from West Palm
,where Robert Burroughs built
high-end pools. At the upscale
Hawk's Landing, he installed
rock waterfalls, entryways,
fountains, pools, spas, slides
"and underwater tables.
"These were people who
wanted all the bells and whis-
dle., like a six-by-six area water
let where you can swim against
the current," Kim Burroughs
sjid.
With their children now
gro. n, they decided, to break


out on their own, although own-
ing a business is a big step.
"My husband's known as
'The Pool King.' It's an art to
him," Kim Burroughs said.
Aquatic Design can design,
remodel, make repairs and serv-
ice pools. The Burroughs give a
free estimate and are always
happy and excited to incorpo-
rate the customer's ideas and
challenges in order to create an
"aqua dream," whether it
resembles -an oasis or a beach-
style entry. Some popular.
trends are the sheer-descent or
vanishing-edge pools, as well
as Greek pillars. For example,
when baseball star Jose
Conseco wanted a unique pool
built for his kids to enjoy,
Burroughs made volcanoes and
bridges a part of it. .

recently hired Burroughs to
build a pool at his new home in
Sebring.
"We were looking for a pool
builder,- and Ken Poe, our
builder brought Aquatic Design
to our attention. We sat down
with Burroughs on a Saturday,
told him what we wanted, asked
him to give me a design and
show me some photos. The next
Saturday, we met again. He hit
it right the first time. I like peo-
ple who do what .they say.

Carter's .pool has an under-
water sundeck which is great
for leaning back in a lounger
and also is safer for kids
because, of the six-inch-deep.
water level. There's intimate
seating in another corner, com-
plete with a table and a water
feature. A n aterfall a, small
slide and Jacuzzi also are inte-
grated in the pool.
"Best of all, it's deepest in
the middle, so we can add a vol-
leyball net for our kids and
grandkids' enjoyment," Carter
said.
Aquatic Design is a member
of Highlands County Builders
Association, and its Diamond
Brite finish has a 10-year war-
ranty. In addition, Burroughs
offers consultations for those
who want to build their own
pool and pull their own home-

This week is National Infant
Immunizatioh Week.
It is an annual observance to
educate parents, caregivers,
providers and communities on
the importance of timely infant
immunization.
Infants and young children
are particularly vulnerable to
infectious diseases. In the first
24 months of life children need
more than 80 percent of their
vaccinations to protect them
from diseases, disabilities and
death. Immunizations are
extremely safe thanks to med-
ical research and ongoing
review by doctors, researchers
and public health officials.
Nearly 1 million children in
the United States are not ade-
quately immunized and each
day, 11,000 children are born in
the United States who will need
to be immunized against from
13 vaccine preventable diseases
before the age of 2.
Immunizations are safe and
protect children, families and

Southern Pine Beetle Prevention

Program for landowners to begin


Foundation assists teen parents


Special to the News-Sun .
Florida- Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that
beginning May 1 the depart-
ment's Division of Forestry will
offer a new Southern Pine
Beetle Prevention; Cost Share
Program to eligible non-indus-
trial private forest landowners.
The goal of this program is
minimize southern pine beetle
damage in Florida by helping
forest. landowners reduce the
susceptibility of their pine
stands to this destructive insect
pest. Periodic southern pine
beetle outbreaks in Florida have
resulted in millions of cubic
/feet of pine timber killed on


many thousands of acres. Forest
management practices, such as
thinning and prescribed burn-
ing, can improve the health of
pine stands and decrease their
likelihood of developing south-
ern pine beetle infestations.
The new program offers up
Sto 50 percent cost reimburse-
ment for pre-commercial thin-
ning and prescribed burning
treatments and a fixed-rate per,
per acre incentive payment for
landowners who conduct a first
pulpwood thinning. The pro-
gram is limited to 44 northern
Florida counties located within
the range of the southern pine
beetle.. Qualified landowners
may apply for one approved
practice per state fiscal. year.


The minimum tract size
requirement is 10 acres and
funding requests may not
exceed $10,000.
For an application and more
information on program
requirements and procedures,
visit your local Division of
Forestry office. Contact infor-
mation for the .county forester
office in your area is available
at www.fl-dof com.
Applications cannot be sub-
mitted before May 1 and will be
evaluated on a first-received,
first-served basis. The program
is supported through temporary
grants from the USDA Forest
Service and will be offered only
as long as funding is available.

Heartland Telcom Pioneers donated heart pillows to Florida Hospital Lake Placid. The Rev. Juan Colan
(from left), hospital chaplain, accepted the pillows from Doris White, Violet Barton, Richard White,
President Pat Jones and Bernice Hernandez.


"When I finally decided I was in need of hearing aids, I
dropped by the office of Lampe and Kiefer. Roseann sat
down with me and explained the tests she would run and the
different types of hearing aids available. After receiving the
hearing aids, I returned when I felt the need for adjustments.
I am associated with the Florida High\\ a) Patrol Auxiliary.
A couple days before we had weapons training. Roseann
adjusted the compression and knee point. With this adjust-
ment I w a's able to hear all instructions from the range mas-
ter. but not have a problem w ith the noise from the w capon.
After training was complete. I returned
and she readjusted the aids to their orig-
inal settings. I have always been able
to see Roseann when necessary, even .
if it is late in the day and a last minute
visit. She and Bonnie are always there :.
\heni I need any help. I have been rec-
ommending Lampe and Kiefer to
friends with hearing problems." ,.

Is blood t

The "blood type diet" theory has
.gained a lot of attention since Dr. Peter
;J. D'Adamo published his book in
,1996 entitled "Eat Right For Your
'Type." The book's basic premise is
:that Type O's are the dominant, hunter-
,caveman type that require meat in the
:diet, that Type A's are docile vegetari-
:ans, and Type B's are dairy-eating
omnivoress.
Dr. Sir Michael Williams, a clinical
'nutrition specialist with a doctorate in
:immunology, microbiology and bio-


ype diet hype?


I:-


LIFESI
Charleen
...


:chemistry, agreed with the blood type
-diet and adds that altering your diet to
:conform with your blood type is actually linked
,to longevity, physical vitality and emotional
strengthh. He said that your blood type determines
.your susceptibility to illness and your ability to
*fight off disease. "Blood type is a factor'in our
'energy level, the efficiency with which we bum
'calories and our response to-stress." He said that
.since we have mapped the genetic code, we have
'unlocked a whole new field of research which
*connects genetics with blood type.
However, Martha- McKittrick, a registered
'dietician and certified diabetes educator, said,
,"There is no scientific proof that different body
.)ypes. or blood types for that butter, need special
-diets." She admitted that some people believe
:the\ feel beer \ hen the\ follow the dict for their
Blood type, and "if you feel better on the diet,
:then follow it." McKittrick also is a certified fit-
,ness instructor who specializes in weight control,
'cardiovascular health, diabetes, sports and gener-
.al nutrition. She advocates that people follow
,whatever diet makes them feel better, and
'acknowledges that different people feel better on
different diets. Some people feel better when they
follow a low carb diet, whereas others feel better,
: ,on a high carb but low fat diet. She suggests that
,you experiment to see what kind of diet makes
'you feel best.
D'Adamo wrote his book based on research
:that was initially inspired by his father's theories
,on the importance of blood types in predicting a
'person's biochemistry. This led him to identify
'the genetic fingerprints, of the four blood groups,
,0, A, B and AB, and link them with four opti-
.mum diets.
D'Adamo believes that blood types can be
traced to the evolution of mankind, and,-each
blood type contains the genetic information from
"our ancestors' diets and ways of living.
It is interesting to note that this information
-still affects many of us today, particularly our
-immune systems. Our unique immune system
Recognizes invading substances, and one method
'of determining whether a substance is alien to our
:bodies or not involves the use of antigens.
'Antigens are chemical markers found in the
'blood. Each blood type possesses different anti-
:gens to detect foreign invaders, and once recog-
'nized, the immune system is able to eradicate
Them by producing the necessary chemicals, hor-
'mones, white blood cells and antibodies.
The immune system also produces antibodies
,to other blood types. For example, Type A will


'"'" have antibodies to blood Type B and
Type B will have antibodies to Type A
blood. This explains why Types A and
B cannot exchange blood.
Antibodies are also produced to cer-
tain foods, and it is the four blood types
which schedule the immune system to
tolerate different kinds of foods,
according to D'Adamo. Each blood
AVERS type is programmed to accept the kinds
of foods that were the major part of
n Stroup their ancestors' diet- thousands of years
- ago.
Whether a blood type accepts a food
or riot. depends on the factor called
"lectins" which are low carbohydrate protein
molecules. found in most foods. These have
agglutinating (sticking) properties, which allow
them to attach to other molecules and other mol-
ecules to attach to them, much like pieces of vel-
cro.
The power of "lectin agglutination" can be
seen in the assassination of Gyorgi Markov in
1978 by Soviet KGB agents. Initially, the autop-
sy could not find an answer to his death, but a
thorough search revealed a gold bead permeated
with a chemical called ricin in Markov's leg.
Ricin is a toxic lectin extracted from castor beans
and is so potent that even the tiniest amount can
cause death by agglutinating red blood cells into
large clots and blocking arteries. This is an
extreme case and thankful. -ani uncompromising
immune, system generally protects us from most
lectins.
Lectins in food are blood type specific and if
incompatible, the lectins can agglutinate the cells
and cause reactions within the body. For exam-
ple, a lectin protein found in milk is not benefi-
.cial to blood Type A as it cannot be digested. It
may result in an immune response of histamine
which causes the body to produce antihistamines
and may produce an allergic reaction. This often
causes inflammation in the lining of the stomach
or it may. be absorbed into the blood stream and
cause problems such a's irritable bowel syndrome
or liver/kidney irritation. Another lectin is gluten
which causes inflammation of the villi in the
intestines of some people.
The key to' health is to avoid the lectins that
agglutinate your particular cells, and D'Adamo
has based his research on identifying which foods
are most suited to which blood types. In our next
article, we will talk more about the different
foods and blood types. In the meanwhile, remem-
ber to schedule your appointment to donate blood
or aphoresis. Check the schedule published
weekly in this paper for the destination of "The
Big Red Bus" in and about Highlands County.
For more information and to schedule your
appointment to donate, call Florida's Blood
Center at 382-4499.
Thank you for giving the gift of life.

Good Shepherd Hospice


volunteers honored at lunch


SEBRING More than 50
Good Shepherd Hospice volun-
teers were honored on April 4
as part of National Volunteer
Appreciation Week.
"Volunteer recognition is'
something we try to do in small
ways everyday," said Kristin
Harmoh, volunteer coordinator
of Good-Shepherd Hospice in
Highlands and Hardee county).:
"At least annually, though, we
hold a special event to show the
volunteers just how much the\
mean to us."
Volunteers .and guests were
treated to an Italian-themed
luncheon at the Four Points
Sheraton Chateau Elan, and
were recognized for their amaz-
ing accomplishments in the last
12-months.

' 1 .


"These incredible individuals
pro ided more than 4.100 hours
of -service .last year,, touching
the lives of more than 500 local
Good Shepherd Hospice
patients and families," Harmon
remarked.
Volunteers work side-by-side
with staff in numerous capaci-
fies providing office assistance,
companionship and respite for
patients and families in their
homes, nursing homes or assist-'
ed living facilities, and per-
forming community outreach
and education. The theme of
this year's event, "Our Picture
Isn't Complete Without You!"
highlighted the many ways vol-
unteers impact the organization
and make it possible for Good
Shepherd Hospice to provide


care for anyone' in the commu-
nity, regardless of their ability
to pay. Several staff members
spoke to the volunteers about
the ways in which their own
jobs would be different .if not
for the volunteers, and the high-
light was a lasting tribute to
their commitment to making,
the most of life.
Each.person received a puz-
zle piece and signed it and then
it was assembled into a lasting
picture that will be displayed in
the Sebring office.
"Volunteers are a vital piece
of our puzzle and a vital piece
of our community. Each one of
them truly makes a difference
in the lives that they touch,"
Harmon said.

Keep Shrimp



Fresh

Delicious,and easy to prepare, shrimp is a traditional
Florida favorite. Many Publix stores offer both fresh
and frozen varieties, so keep these pointers in mind
when handling and storing shrimp at home.

Thawed or fresh shrimp should be firm and free
of strong odor.

Shrimp may be refrigerated up to two days from
the time of purchase.

Shrimp may be frozen up to one month, but never
refreeze previously frozen uncooked shrimp.

Upon your request, the Publix Seafood
department will gladly steam or devein your
shrimp.

On Friday March 31st, 2006 the Cancer Care Center in Sebring cel-
ebrated their 20th anniversary here in Highlands county. Dr. C.H.
Amar Inalsingh and Dr. Prahab Ray have been in practice since
1986. Along with this celebration came the announcement of the
merger with Dr. Inder Bhutiani and Dr. Hee Yoon, Radiation
Oncologists from Highlands Regional Oncology Center in Avon Park
joining their practice. All physicians and dignitaries from the county
were invited to this gala affair. Since early2004 the center has
offered the latest technology in radiation treatment for
cancer...IMRT. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is a
new technique of delivering Radiation Therapy that can improve
cure rates while reducing harmful side effects. It is thought to be one
of the most important advances in cancer therapy. We are proud to
announce an addition to our existing 'state of the art' technology
equipment arriving in June 2006. We will be offering a spiral CT
canner for visualizing in 3-dimensions the exact tumor location for
treatment and sparing the surrounding areas. Using only 'state of the
art' technology, our staff of highly trained, board certified medical
professionals, strive to make our patients visits to the Cancer Care
Center a partnership in winning the fight against cancer.

Palms of Sebring plans 100th


birthday p;
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Law rence
Orvel Larson, who .ais born in
Ridgeway, Wis. on Apnl 27.
1906, will turn 100 ThursdaN.
From his eighth floor inde-
pendent living apartment at
The Palms of Sebring, he is
quick to give people a w arm.
triendl smile as he walks.
through the lobb) on his liaN
to dinner or to attend some
function in the aciv cities center.
Orvel and his w ife Rita
came to live at The Palms of
Sebring on May 5. 2004. after
selling their honie in Clermont.
He believed it would be better
to liv e in da retirement conmmu-
nity where care is.available
when needed. Also, Rita has a
sister in Avon Park, which
means family was nearby.
Orvel Larson graduated
from Hawthorne High School
in 1920. He took a mail order
class in purchasing and his first
job was with a manufacturing
company where he became a
purchasing agent. The
Depression came, however and
suddenly there was no job.
He eventually went to work
for the Madison Gas and
Electric Company, but his posi-
tion ended and Orvel was laid
off again. Fortunately, the pres-.
ident of the company played
golf and encouraged the golf-.
ing association to hire Orvel to
be the golf club manager until
another position became avail-
able at the gas and electric
company. He retired in 1971

Orvel Larson
after 37 years of service. He
said the greatest thing about
the Madison Gas and Electric
was the way they treated him
and he enjoyed working with
the customers. One customer
wrote a letter applauding his
service and congenial manner-
isms toward her. The company
then wrote a nice letter to
Orvel.
As a young lad and a
Lutheran, Orvel talked about a
time when he was very angry
with God because things
weren't going his way. He told
God he was going to "give him
up and turn away from the
church." The very next week,
he received a message that he
was wanted for the church b'as-
ketball team. All thoughts of
turning' away from God faded
and, as a matter of fact, he


vel Larson
soon met the woman who
woid "become his first wife.
Or\el went on to sere:'in sev-
eral positions in the church and
ne\er again thought of leaving
God.
Oriel has lots of stories to
tell and quite a felt words of
wisdom to share. 1-e will say,
"Don't get mad at people. Just
pray for them and forgive
them." His favorite Bible verse
is from John 14. terse 1: "Let
not Nour heart be troubled."
His favorite pastime is reading
the Bible as well as books
explaining the Bible and salva-
tion.
Orvel actually met Rita
many years ago when she
worked as a nurse for friends
of the Larsons. Several years
after his first wife had passed
away, he met Rita again and
the couple eventually married.
He said that Rita. took very
good care of him when he was
ill, now it's his turn to take
care of her. He does with great
care and loving kindness.
A 100th birthday celebration
is planned for 2 p.m. Thursday
in The Palms of Sebring's
Activities Center. His only
daughter will join other family
members and friends as well as
residents at The Palms for cake
and ice cream. No doubt, Orvel
will have some great experi-
ence to share.

Good scores, news

Scores for the writing portion of the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test have arrived and the
news is good for Highlands County.
The news for county schools has educators, students
and parents dancing in the aisles. Scores have raised sub-
stantially across the district.
In order to pass muster with the state this year, students
had to score a 3.5 out of six points.
Only 56 percent of fourth-graders scored that well last
year. This year 72 percent did; an increase of 16 percent.
Last year 73 percent of eighth-graders scored 3.5 on
the test; this year 79 percent did an increase of six'
percent.,
Some schools catapulted ahead. /
Lake Country Elementary School improved its stu-
dents' writing scores by 35 percent. Park Elementary
School, which has been fighting to break away from a
"D" rating for several years now, improved its students'
scores by 31 percent.
Joyce McClelland, principal at Park Elementary
School, said her staff .is ecstatic. "We're floating," she
'said, then added, "I attribute our success to our teachers.
They spent the summer training to teach writing, and on
their own time, not on days:under regular contract."
But it wasn't teachers alone, McClelland hurried to
add. Parents were just as important.
For example, when fourth-grade teachers created
workshops for parents that were conducted at night, par-
ents turned out to gain insight and help.
And when fourth-grade teachers created a two-day-a-
week after-school tutoring program, parents responded
by making sure their.children attended.
Another element that helped students do-better, was
the special care taken to support special education stu-
dents.
With schools helping each other for example, Park
Elementary School teachers were able to attend an
important writing workshop held at Lake Placid
Elementary School, and Avon Elementary School is
-looking into adopting Park's tutorial program for its own
students educators throughout the district brim with
enthusiasm.
Good FCAT scores translate into good news for
Highlands County schools and their staff and students.

Reversing practical


jokes on the kids


I'll admit it ... there is a cer-,
tain amount of malicious fun in
playing a practical joke on
someone. My kids have taught
me that.
I have been the \ victim of
wild stories, had them jump out
and yell boo at me, scaring me.
half to death, you name it. The
older they get. the better the\
are at it, and it occurred to me
that. he. I'm no dummy. I
have a -creative mind and
maybe it's time I use it to heap
some restitution upon these
pranksters \who take so much
pleasure in seeing me jump.,
squirm and blink in stupidity.
I started with Jake. and.I did-
n't plan the revenge, it just kind
of happened.
Jake's 16, knows e erything,
has mischief written all oler
him, and stavs in trouble. He
lives on. Little Debbie Snack
Cakes, potato chips and what-
ever fast food 'he can wheedle
money out of me for, which
apparently is the FDA
Approved Diet of a true
prankster.
I was cooking dinner when
inspiration hit. I saw my hus-
band through the window, com-
ing across the yard ... cussin'.
This is not a rare scenario.
He's always outside and always
cussin' about something, usual-
ly about something Jake's done.
Which was my first instinct;
what's Jake done now?
After a moment it became
clear that he was cussin' about
something else one of the
animals, the electric fence,
whatever who knows? I was
momentarily relieved, and then
I saw my chance to get even for
years of gray hairs. I had no
idea what was going to happen,
but I figured nothing ventured,
nothing gained.
I stopped dead still, staring
out the window and then turned
to Jake, who was draped over
the couch thoroughly engrossed
in "That 70s Show." Bless his
heart, he looked so calm and
peaceful, which made what I
was prepared. to do that much
more satisfying.
"Red alert, Jake!" I hissed.

'ard and he's cussin' .. and
calling your name."
This was'a very believable
situation for .him. If I'd said
there %as a three-headed cow
outside, come look ... he would-
n't have batted an eve. But this;
this reeked of credibility And I
am also know n tb run a little
interference for hiW on occa-
sion if I know he's',in trouble;
I'll give him a little heads up so
he can prepare himself. So, the
fact that I was warning him was
completely natural.
I I'm no rocket scientist but I,
understand something about the,
laws of physics, such as, a
human body in a prone position
must first become upright
before being set in forward
motion. Apparently this law
only applied when you don't
have a guilty conscience and,
expect to be called on the carpet
at any given moment without a
second's notice for some no-
good behavior you've been up
to.
The only thing more remark-
able about the fact that he pro-
pelled himself off the couch
using only the muscles in his
butt cheeks, was the fact that he
landed squarely on two feet that
were already moving like pis-
tons, which demonstrated the
old adage "hit the floor run-
ning" in a grand manner.
He was halfway across the
room, having gone from zero to
60 in under three seconds, (it's
amazing what a teenage boy
can accomplish if he thinks he's

From games to exams: A life lesson?

were once art projects, there are
now research papers and
exams. Where there was once
sugar, there is now caffeine.
So, that has led me to: this
belief: that with time comes the
continual, process of learning.
Just because school is down to


the last few days for me, and
last month for public schools,
should not mean that my learn-
ing needs to cease. In fact, it
should be ever so present, for it
is showing what I have learned
and accomplished through my
time at school.
As Henry L. Doherty once
put it, "Get over the idea that
,only children should spend their
time in study. Be a student so
long as you still have something
to learn, and this will mean all
your life."
I think this offers us a new
idea into the finals that many
students have to face. Sure they
may be hard, but it is one of the
things about growing up that we
must all face. Once school ends,
our learning should not cease to
exist.


To those in school, perhaps
that might make it a bit easier
studying for all of those finals
... perhaps. We all know that it
will never take the place of the
fun activities that we did in the
younger grades. However, with,
time must come change.
To those out of school, take it
easy on us. We are still learning
how to adjust to this concept. If -
it means that we are making the
transition into a life of learning-
then bring on those exams!
After all, we are now becoming
a student for life.

A very dear friend was killed
in Biloxi, Miss., while standing
on the sidewalk observing the
ocean.
The person who killed him
was a 17-year-old illegal
Mexican immigrant who was
inebriated while driving a car
without a license, crossing four
lanes of traffic, the median, and
hit my friend who was standing
on the sidewalk. This illegal
immigrant had been deported
twice before in the past.
My questions are:
1; Who allowed this 17-year-
old illegal immigrant back into
the U.S.A.?
2. Who loaned him the car to
drive?
3. Who gave him the alco-
hol?
Our dear friend leaves a wife
and four children plus several
grandchildren and mrainy
,friends -who '\ illn mourn the
passing of this fine Christian
man.
He worked all his life at the
Kellogg Company ini Battle
Creek, Mich., and from his first
day at Kellogg he contributed
to his retirement, plus raising
beef cattle on his small farm to
add extra income to his retire-
ment years. Now he is dead at
64 years of age and will not
enjoy his retirement years.
Does one not wonder why
there is such an outcry, against
illegal immigration?

Don't promote

tourism here
Editor:..
I am writing in response to
the most recent article regard-
ing the promotion of Highlands
County as a major tourist desti-
nation. This has been the focus
of a few articles already.
Most recently, 'William
Devane was in town to do a
promotional spot for the
'Highlands County Tourism
Council. This will be broadcast
over the cable network to pro-
mote tourism- in Highlands
County. The areas to be target-
ed are Miami, Fort Myers and
Naples.
Is it just me or has anyone
noticed we don't need to get the
word out. The word is out!
The very areas that are being
targeted is where a lot of the
people are coming from
already. Tourism generally* is
when people come to visit and,

then go back to their own town,
however, in Highlands County
it's m6re of a real estate frenzy
as,.te isltor don't go back
holie::they bu\ up all the prop-
erty and houses. This causes
housing prices and property
prices to soar. Housing prices
in particular are out'of control.
A young family just getting
started out cannot afford a
home of their own.
Don't get me. 'wrong,
Highlands County has a lot to
offer when it comes'to golf and
our abundance of lakes.
However, will anyone from the,
tourism council mention how.
far you have to drive just to do
any real .shopping. Our
Lakeshore Mall falls pretty,
short in the desirable shopping
category. Three major stores
recently pulled out of the mall;
they were replaced by useless
stores. One was a mattress store
that just took over, a bigger
space than it had before; the
other is used to display motor
bikes. 'Please.
It is lime to get off the "''greed
wagon" and start concentrating
on our own residents' who
pump their hard earned dollars
into this county on a daily basis
year round.' Then we can focus,
on promoting ourselves.
Just a few of the ways our
lives could be improved are:
Build affordable housing: find
funding for some 'sort of trans-
portation system within
Sebring; increase the wages;
instead of wasting money
renaming streets, build some
connecting highways that hook
up to major interstates and
turnpikes.
I am sure all of us could
think of something that could
improve our community, our
city and our county- besides
promoting ourselves as a
tourist destination. Remember,
more people brings more prob-


lems, traffic and crime. So be
careful what you wish for.

Issues that need

attention
Editor:
I was disappointed that
Congress was unable to resolve
the immigration conflict. This
is an issue that is affecting
many areas of our country; we
need a solution that will. be:
beneficial to. all and stop the
unlimited flow of illegals. As it
is. today, it is a drain on our
society.
I'm hoping that our president
will come up with a plan that
will keep our Social Security
solvent as it is. I don't feel that
the basic structure needs
changing, but we do need a
plan that will secure the funds
which are paid in. It should be
illegal for these funds to be
diverted to other programs.
These funds belong to the peo-
ple and should be maintained
for that which h they were
intended. It should be illegal
for these funds to be diverted to
welfare or any other program.
It should be mandatory for all
IOUs to be repaid and illegal
for them to be withdrawn for
any other purpose than benefits
to those who have paid into
these funds.
We should work toward pro-
tecting our American' heritage
through our legal system. There
are too many trying to force un-
American policies into our
country. We should not be
denied the privilege of freely
and openly worshiping the God
who has brought us to this
point by recognizing Christ-
mas as the birth of our Lord,
not being persecuted for our
beliefs and not having to

Time to remove

all gas taxes
Editor:
For years and yeais, govern-
ments, both local and state and.
the U.S. government, have rode
the driving public horse (car)
with tax after ta-x and the
motoring public has had to eat
it. Now the picture is changing.
The average working man
and woman in the United States
is unable to support these taxes.
and still be able to get to work,
put food oi the table or get the
kids to school by car pool.
Schools will have to raise
budgets for school bus gas.
It's time for all taxes on
gasoline to be removed.
Politicians rode the motoring
public for a long time but now
the time to find another cash
cow has come. Remove all gas
taxes before this tax burden
brings our economy to a halt.

Immigrants hang in the balance


Once upon a time,
the government of a
new nation put into
place three laws
designed to invite
immigrants across its
border and settle on
their new land that
was offered at bar-
gain basement prices
subject to little or
no taxation.
That these new
immigrants must
agree to learn
Spanish, become
Mexican citizens,


WRITER'S
Ric LilenbergMP
Ric Liljenberg


convert to Catholicism and
obey Mexican law seemed a
powerful marketing tool fol-
lowing Mexico's independence
from Spanish rule at about the
same time another new nation
successfully revolted against its
British king.
-One year before coloniaLrep-
resentatives signed the
Declaration of Independence in
1776, Spain had claimed virtu-
ally all the land west of the
Mississippi River.
In the etiriy 1800s, Mexican
leaders became concerned
about a new notion that earl\
United States settlers brought


with them into the
northern frontier of
what would become
an independent Texas
- remember, the
Alamo?
New York resident
and newspaper editor
John O'Sullivan,
wrote that his fledg-
ling nation had a
"manifest destiny to
overspread the conti-
nent allotted by
Providence for the
free development of
our yearly multiply-


ing millions."
O'Sullivan took the Mexican
immigration laws in stride.
After all, if God was guiding his
readers to ignore borders and
the laws of other sovereign
nations, who cared what other
governments had to say about
westward expansion? .
His readers were happy to
purchase cheap land in Mexico
and eventually claimed Texas.,
New Mexico, Arizona, and.
California for the United States
of America.
Nearly 200 years later, these
states along with Florida-
are resisting the millions of


Mexicans pouring northward
into the lands that once upon a
time belonged to Mexico, and
might still belong to Mexico, if
O'Sullivan had not had the
providential vision that he pub-
lished in his New York newspa-
per.
The Mexican government
watched as this theocratic
notion removed their northern
frontier from its control.
It probably was destined to
turn out this way. After all, only
three European nations made
any real attempt at colonizing
the New World England, -
France and Spain, and to a less-
er extent the Dutch and the
Germans. Some have argued
since that the Great Motes of
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
have. had more to do with
O'Sullivan's coined phrase than
any prejudice against newcom-
ers different from those who
already live here.
So, about 200 years later,
Mexicans are pouring into the
United States of America to the
tune of about 12 million. They
are promised jobs and a chance
to live, in the nation that
Mexican military man. Santa
Anna, tried to prevent secession


from Mexico.
On May 14, 1836, he signed
a treaty that recognized the
independence of Texas; it was
officially added to the United
States on Dec. 29, 1845.
We are all nomads, I sup-
pose, moving again and again
in Jefferson's "pursuit of life,
liberty and happiness."
Happiness? ,
A former U.S. president,
Thomas Jefferson, had the
notion that Divine Providence
had set aside the new nation as
a pool of people who would run
after life, after liberty, and after
happiness.
And according to what I hear,
nothing has changed much
since these three European
nations began establishing
colonies in the New World.
And when I ,fly over the.
Great Plains, and the Great
Basin, I realize again how much
land Divine Providence gave to
the United States of America.
So, is there room for some
more people who would love to
live here?

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
April 24,1996: Former
Blue Streak All-State run-
ning back Jesse Sanders
was picked up bythe
Tampa Bay Buccaneers as
a free agent. Disappointed
that he was not drafted,,
but grateful for the oppor-
tunity in the NFL, the,
University of Tennessee
graduate was happy to be
close to home. "I was hop-
ing that if I got drafted it
would be in Florida,"' said
then 23 year-old Sanders.
"I'm ready to go into camp
to show them they made a
wise choice in choosing
me."
20 Years Ago
April 27, 1986: The Avon
Park Red Devils, as expect-
ed, won the district J'ase-
ball championship. '
Standout pitcher Thomas
Gordon pitched his second
no-hitter of the season,
striking out 17 and tying a
state record for shutouts
as the Devils beat Hardee
8-0. It was the fourth victo-
ry of the season for'the
Red Devils over Hardee
and the 10th district cham-
pionship in 11 years. Avon
Park moved to 30-2 overall
and prepared to take on
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney
for the regional title.

game at Head Field in Avon Park.


Abeln drives in seven as Sebring



bombards Booker in 10-4A opener


By MARCUS WILKINS ,
AVON PARK Tie Sebring Blue
Streaks buried 'Sarasota-Booker Monday
night 11-0 in the District 10-4A tournament
on the strength of Chaz Abeln's bat and the
dominant pitching of Rudy Levocz.
Abeln was a monster at the plate, boom-
ing a third-inning home run off the score-
board in left center at Head Field and fin-
ishing the night with seven RBIs.
"I can't say that I've ever had seven
RBIs before. Maybe in little league," said
Abeln.I 'Tm [eily just je'izd to put the ball
in play and rnake them lield a "


While -hitting the ball out of the park

Abeln did rope a two-run single.in the first
and a double in the fourth that
Sebring landed just fair and out of
reach of first baseman Luis
Santiago.
Booker Levocz did his duty in the
rout, mixing up his pitches
effectively and plowing
through the overmatched
Tornado lineup in going five strong innings.
Booker made a last gasp attempt to extend
the game in the bottom of the fifth, putting
runners on first and second with two outs.


Moving back to-'his reliable fastball,
L\Oc 'z struck out Jake Ha\n to- end, the
game and move Sebring into the semifinals.
The Streaks played error-free ball led by
the outstanding defense of J.C. Shoop. The
junior catcher blocked the plate in the
fourth after a passed ball when Booker's
Taylor Reed was caught between third and
home. Taking a throw from Abeln, Shoop
absorbed a collision with the significantly
smaller Reed in a cloud of dust. Two batters

High School Softball State Playoffs

Devils put up good


fight against Bartow

Game against four-time defending

state champs closer than expected


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Sebring's Timothy Wheaton qualified for regional in the 300-meter
intermediate hurdles.


News-Sun
BARTOW -- The Lady
Red Devils may have lost in
the first round of the Class 4A
state playoffs Tuesday night,
but they garnered a little
respect in the process.
Taking on mighty Bartow
- the four-time defending
state champion AMon Park
held the Yellow Jackets closer
than expected, falling 6-0.
"I'm proud'of them to play
Bartow like that," Avon Park
coach Mike Cobb said. "We
came out here with big team
jitters (when we) looked up
on the scoreboard and Bar
saw all of those state
championships. The
girls didn't stay with Avon
their game, but the set-
tled down as the game
went on."
Bartow did all of its scor-
ing in the first three innings,
getting a run-scoring triple
from Kara Rutenbar in the
first and a run-scoring
groundout in the second
before putting the Devils
away with a four-run third.
Elizabeth Howell led off
the third with a triple for
Bartow, and two hit batters
loaded the bases with no outs
before a potential double-play
grounder was booted into a
two-run error.
The Jackets tacked on two
more runs on a wild pitch and


a run-scoring grounder to go
up by six.
After that, however, Avon
Park pitcher Amanda Tindell
found her groove, getting
through the fourth inning on
just four pitches and retiring
the side in order in the fifth
and sixth innings.
The star of the game was
Bartow sophomore starter
Candice Howell, who struck
out 12 in six innings of work,
but Avon Park's Heather
Bares nearly stole the show.
The sophomore shortstop
had three hits to account for
tow half of the Devils' total
and also made three out-
standing defensive
Park plays to earn the appre-
ciation of the large
crowd.
"Heather had a great
game," Cobb said. "Heather
steps up to the competition,
and she stepped up above and
beyond tonight."
Bames came the closest to
scoring for Avon Park after
leading off the fourth with an
infield single and advancing
to third when Missy Lander
reached on an error. *
' But Carissa Smith's
squeeze bunt didn't get far
enough away from the play,
allowing the catcher to snag
the ball and tag out Barnes at
the plate to turn away the
Devils.lone scoring chance.

Tomlinson came in to pinch
run, Abeln hit his first RBI sin-
gle to open up a 4-0 lead.
Vazquez had an effective
offensive night, reaching base
and- scoring twice, as did
Shoop, who walked in the third
and was hit by a pitch in the
fourth. Shoop has moved
around in the batting order this
year, and served as table-setter
Monday night for the locked-in
Abeln.

field to clear the bases for a 4-0 Lake Placid lead
"These high school games, you rarely beat
anybody. Usually, teams beat themselves. This
team on the field tonight, they beat themselves,"
Coomes said, referring to Frostproof's six errors
in the game.
Delgado added another RBI to his total in the
third when he followed Brent Bierman's single
and stolen base with a single for a 5-0 lead, but


Sebring coach Hoppy Rewis
was pleased with the total team
effort, having virtually nothing
to complain about after the
game.
"We played well, even
though they scared us a little bit
because they've gotten so much
better since the last time we
played them," said Rewis. "We
needed Rudy to go the whole
game and he did, arid that helps
the team pitching "


Frostproof rallied: in the fourth with run-scoring
singles from Brandor Andre and Cody Barnes to
cut it to 5-2.
SIt didn't take long for the Dragons to get those
runs back, however. After Omar DeJesus reached
on a dropped pop-tip to die pitcher in the bottom
of the fifih. Steven Le~ine drilled a two-run
homer to left to pump the lead back up to five
runs, which is where it stayed the rest of the way.
"That one got out of here in a hurry. Anything
that travels that far ought to have a stewardess on
it," Coomes said,, borrowing a line from "Bull
Durham."
