VOLUME 9/NUMBER 32


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The
SpringLake Improvement
District is using eminent
domain to acquire a flooding
easement covering 38 acres of
Sandra Tyrrell's property.
SpringLake superintendent
Robert Frank Aquilina and
Tyrrell, proprietor of Lakeside
.Stables & Boat Rentals, are
awaiting Circuit Judge J. David
Langford's ruling after a day of
testimony during an order of
taking hearing Wednesday.
At issue is
whether the
$48,000 that
SpringLake
is offering to
pay for the
easement is
a "good
faith" valua-
'tion for the
TYRRELL unrestricted
flooding
rights.
In her opening statement,
Celeste F. Adorno, assistant
attorney general and eminent
domain -bureau chief from
Tallahassee, explained that
SpringLake is a political subdi-
vision created in 1971 that has

SEBRING The 'Long-
range Transportation
Committee recommended a
future road plan, if County
Road 635 has an alternate
route.
The vote Wednesday was
split, 6-5, with member Bill
Shaffer abstaining. They only
want the road extension
included if the route can con-
nect State Roads 64 and 66
while evading Golf Hammock
subdivision and, Highlands
Hammock State Park.
Chairman Curtis DeYoung
.said he always understood the
road would use the eastern
edge of the park, and not touch
Golf Hammock. Residents at
Wednesday's packed meeting
didn't believe that.
Sally Pals of Golf
Hammock asked if her neigh-
borhood would be the next
choice if. the county can't get
the state land. Her husband, Al
Pal, said St. Johns, Mich., had
the same problem where U.S.
27 enters that town, and had to
relocate the highway to ease
congestion. He asked if the
county has looked at that
option.
Neighbor Deana Lewis
asked if the county considered
Parnell Road in Hardee'
County a possible route, since
officials there plan to widen it.
DeYoung said it's too far west
to work as a local collector
road.
Ultimately, the decision
rests with the county commis-
sion. Even if they want the
road in the same location, the
trustees of the Florida Internal
Improvement Trust the
governor and cabinet -
would have final say on swap-
ping land from the park,
DeYoung said.
Dr. Hilary Swain, biologist
and advisor to the Florida


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Defense attorney Kevin Ashley, of Lake Wales, allows assistant attorneys general Michael Takac and
Celeste F. Adorno to look over an aerial photograph of his client Sandra Tyrrell's property, on which the
SpringLake Improvement District is tying to get a flood easement by invoking its eminent domain rights.


flooding on its 3,800 acres, on
which 1,447 homes and busi-
nesses are situated.
The pumps, which discharge
to an Arbuckle Creek tributary,
allegedly flood Tyrrell's proper-
ty, which occupies a flood zone.
The creek's stage (water level),
rain patterns and hurricane


activity are said to play a role in
how much and for how long her
land is inundated with water.
Kevin A. Ashley, a Lake
Wales attorney representing,
Tyrrell, called eminent domain
an "awesome power" that his
client acknowledges.
SpringLake has but questions


whether the community's board
of supervisors gave serious con-
sideration to their options.
"They did a very poor job of
seeking alternatives," Ashley
said during-opening statements,
suggesting that SpringLake
opted for eminent domain out
of convenience. "They didn't


Cabinet on such issues, said
requests to take public conser-
vation land for a project are
long and arduous, requiring
officials to show the road is
vital and that all other alterna-
tives were exhausted.
Highlands Hammock State
Park is one of the jewels of the
park system. State officials
pay particular attention to
what happens there, Swain
said, especially with regard to
habitat loss or traffic flow in
and around the park.
Golf Hammock resident
Richard Morey pleaded to
keep the park whole.
"Some things are worth
driving by or around, not
through," he said.
Wife Lesa Morey said the
state park route was defeated
four times in three years when
commissioners in 2001 voted,
twice against the road and told
staff to develop a plan without
it.
Warren Hall, a former mem-
ber of the transportation com-
mittee, said. county staff
pushed very hard .to include
the road .on the. map.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said he
and County Administrator
Carl Cool pushed for the road
because local traffic would use
it avoid future congestion on'
U.S. 27.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said the commission voted
five years ago to take the road
off the capital improvement
plan. Whether or not the road
would get built has hurt land
values in Golf Hammock, he
said, in his district. He wants it
off the map until issues get
sorted out, and the commis-
sion discusses it.
"I think it's needed, but if
you need to take 20-30 homes,
I won't support it," Maxcy
said.

Adorno, assisted by assistant
attorney general Michael Takac,
called four witnesses -
SpringLake superintendent
Robert Frank Aquilina; Kent
Stephen Calabrese, SpringLake
resident and member of its
board of supervisors from 1998
to 2005; David ,Hamstra, an
Orlando-based engineering
consultant; and appraiser John
R. Underwood Jr.
"Regardless of what I came
up with .... in every case the
assessment by 'SWFWMD'
was that a permit would not be
granted for us to perform any of
those functions," Calabrese
said, explaining from the wit-
ness stand that as the board's
legal liaison he had spent up to
200 hours researching how to
alleviate the flooding issues
facing SpringLake and Tyrrell.
His ideas included laying
pipes across a wetlands area
known as "The Island" to dis-
charge the pumps downstream
of her property, building a dike
around Tyrrell's property, and
digging-out the old creek bed
that borders her land to the
north.
Where safety was a concern
with the pipes Calabrese said
state officials worried that the

Heartland Junior Idol contestant


disgruntled over lack of music


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun ,'
SEBRING --' Fourteen children from
Highlands County entered round two of the 2006
Heartland Junior Idol Thursday evening at Circle
Park.
But of those 14 only 13 sang. .
"It was so horrible I left there crying myself,"
Martha Wentlandt said in a phone interview after
the contest.
She said her daughter, 12-year-old Taylor, was
prepared to sing Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just
Wanna Have Fun" dressed up in fishnet stock-
ings, denim skirt, and a leather motorcycle-style
riding cap but learned that the disc jockey was
having trouble finding her song.
"Things happen, I understand," Wentlandt
said, explaining that her daughter .registered for'
the contest Tuesday and was toldthat Double K
Entertainment would have the karaoke version of
Lauper's song.
She said Taylor spent the next two days learn-
ing the song. "
As her turn to sing came, she was the third
contestant in the junior division, the disc jockey
still couldn't find Taylor's song and Wentlandt
told event coordinator Diana Walker that she was
pulling her daughter out.
"She comes up to Taylor and says, 'You're


going to have to sing a cappella,'" Wentlandt
said.
Walker told the News-Sun that Wentlandt got
"pesky" with her at her suggestion of Taylor's
singing without the music but the problem "was
out of my control."
"Her daughter said, 'But mom I don't know
the song,'" Walker said. "I said, 'If she doesn't
know the words how can she sing the song?'"
About half of the contestants sang a cappella.
"A few chose to sing a cappella," Walker said.
"As for the others, I haven't heard" if there was.a
problem finding their music.
One of the problems encountered, explained
co-coordinator Don Elwell, was that the disc
jockey lacked current tracks popular'with the
Junior Idol crowd, though he seemed to have an
extensive catalog.
Disc jockey Double K, known to Elwell and
Walker only as "Kevin," volunteered his servic-
es the past two rounds but after Thursday's show
he informed Walker that he wouldn't be there for
the May 11 semifinals and finals.
"He had personal matters come up that were
beyond his control," Walker said.
She will be soliciting another disc jockey to
provide karaoke support for the final round.
In the junior division, Sydney Hitt. 10, of

SEBRING A muck fire
that has been monitored since it

according to Corine Burgess,
public information officer for
v the Highlands County Board-of
County Commissioners
The underground fire; locat-
ed between. Arbuckle Creek
Road and the Sebring Airport,
initial began at Hartt Ranch
during a prescribed burn.
Originally it was contained to a
50-acre area and has since
spread to 600 acres, said
Melissa Yunas, wildfire mitiga-
tion specialist for the Florida
Di vision of Forestry.
S% Both Burgess and-Yunas said
there is currently no threat to
life .or property. However,
Burgess issued a public service
announcement Thursday warn-
ing. that residents of the
SpringLake area should expect
to, feel the effects of smoke
through today. She advised peo-
ple with breathing conditions to
.prepare for the possibility of
smoky conditions in the area.
Burgess also stressed the
need for people traveling on
Airport Road-and U.S. 98 to.

Medical records are avail-

Thursday. firefighters with
the Division of Forestry from
Highlands. Arcadia. Glades,
and Okeechobee % worked -to
douse visible flames as they
climbed small trees and shrubs.
Four engines, a soft track, and a
helicopter were being used to
dump water.
With no immediate threat,
Burgess said the only concern
would be long-term if the fire
gets close to homes on the south
end of the ba\ head.
Currently, Yunas said that the
fire is three-fourths of a mile
from any residential houses.
"A fire break (a line through
vegetation made to keep the fire
from spreading) was put in a
.couple of month, ago, 'which
could be used as' a, road for
pumpers to get in and put it out
if it ever threatens the homes,"
Yunas said. "Right now the
wind is in our favor."
Because muck fires burn

of the fire, her car was home at
that time, and she had not been
at work since the blaze.
At 11:07 p.m. Monday,
Highlands County dispatchers
got word of the fire at 105
Beauchamp Street in tropical
Harbor Mobile Home Estates,
Lake Placid. The home was
quickly engulfed in flames.
Firefighters from the Lake
Placid, Highlands Park and Sun
'N Lakes South volunteer fire
departments responded along


with Emergency Medical
Services, but she didn't survive.
Reportedly, two pets also
perished in the fire, but
Shireman did not know if Fire
Investigator Lt. James Pirson
had evidence of that.
- Shireman also could not say
if the home had adequate smoke
detectors. Mobile homes, par-
ticularly older ones with alu-
minum siding, Shireman said,
tend to hold in heat like an
oven. Smoke detectors made of


plastic would be destroyed.
He'd need eyewitness
accounts from friends and rela-
tives .about what fire protection
was in the house, Shireman
said.
Pirson was able to tell the fire
started in the living room, he
said.
The fire marshal's office and
sheriff's office were working
hand-in-hand to resolve the
case, he said.

Speedy trial. It often takes
longer than 175 days for attor-
neys to set depositions for wit-
nesses in a case, he said.,
In Chisholm's case, trial
would have been June 28, but if:
it takes too long to get ready,
the defense can file a notice of
expiration. If granted. the trial
then has to take place within 15
days, but that's usually if the
delay was caused by the state,
not the defense.
Kromholz didn't need to
depose prosecution n witnesses in
Chisholm's case, but the
defense may want to depose
them. ,

Branham, Lee
Two other old cases, both of
which have alleged confessions.
involving shooting deaths, are
still awaiting to get trial dates.
The case .against Michael
Branham, accused of killing
wife Janette Seamans Branham

has been held ip until. July 6.
The judge in the case has not

Lakeland attorney Lawrence. D.
Shearer to suppress evidence
against his'client.
According to depositions' in
the case, Branham made state-
ments to Lakeland attorney'
James Kelly about four days
before the incident where he
allegedly spoke of killing his
wife.
The judge has not yet ruled
on whether r or not prosecution
can use those statements made
to his attorney. ,

,EDUCEDIV,


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING John H. Trevena of Largo,
attorney for Jean Claude Meus has asked
for evidentiary hearings on four parts of his
trial.
On Thursday, he filed a response to the
State Attorney's Office answer to an order
to show cause from. the circuit .court in
Hardee Counth a month ago.
Trevena asked the court to throw out
Meus' conviction and sentence because he
had ineffective counsel.
On May 11, 2001, driving east on State
.Road 64 at night with a semitrailer loaded
with tomatoes, he swerved to avoid hitting
a van at State Road 636. The trailer rolled
onto the van, killing Nona Moore, 40, and
her daughter, Lindsey, 8. Two other daugh-
ters Surx\ied.
Meus w as convicted in August 2003: of
.two counts of vehicular homicide and sen-
tienced Sept. 13, 2003, to 15-years in.pfison.
Trevena's pre% ious claims included alle-
gations that trial attorney James Franklin
failed to. find and use evidence and, witness-
es, to challenge a particular juror, to object
to admission of a crime scene diagram, and
to object to a question from Assistant State
Attorney John Kromholz about Meus'


speed at the crash location.
Last-month, the state responded to the
court's order to show cause, arguing that
Trevena's previous claims didn't meet the
legal standard for a evidentiary hearings.

Witness/evidence
Trevena states Franklin failed to call wit-
nesses who to show Meus had. more ,than
four hours sleep before the wreck.
Logs from Six L in Immokalee allegedly
would have shown Meus six hours to load
his truck, Trevena stated, and would have
gotten at least four hours of sleep there.
Dianne Warren, security supervisor at,
Six L, allegedly would have corroborated
this, as would Pierre Lascase, who was with
Meus the day .and morning before the
wreck.
He said Lascase drove with Meus to
Immokalee from Kingsland, Ga., and could
have said Meus slept in his berth nine hours
before dnving
What's more, Tre\ ena said the attorney
should have called Juan Otero, ,a volunteer'
Firefighter who arrived at the scene right
after ithappened, knew the intersection,
had seen about 100 wrecks, had experience
in accident reconstruction and had driven
trucks for two years.


One of the jurors allegedly "high-fived"
another juror for gening picked. Trevena
states Franklin should have challenged the
juror.
Allegedly the same juror said all traffic
fatality cases should be charged as crime:.
A diagram used by a Florida' Highway
- Patrol officer allegedly was not to scale and
mislead jurors into how well Meus did or
didn't steer the truck at the speed he was
driving that night. .
Trevena states the diagram 'served only
to support the theory that Meus had fallen
asleep behind the wheel, and was inadmis-
sible.
Trevena also argues Franklin should
have objected to the trooper giving an opin-
ion on what speed Meus was driving or
what speed was safe for 'the intersection.
Allegedly, the trooper said on 'the record
that speed \ as not a factor.
Finally, Trevena amended one claim
regarding alleged misconduct '.b'
SKronmholz. Allegedly, Krombolz contacted
Franklin suggesting he contact civil attor-
neys and the victims' family for input on
plea negotiations in the criminal case.
Trevena states that violated Meus' right
to a fair trail, but Franklin allegedly never
told the trial judge about it.


Semi driver hits crane on U.S. 98; one hospitalized


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LORIDA -A Lakeland man'
was flown to Homes Trauma in
Fort Pierce after being ejected
from his crane Thursday morn-
ing when it was slammed by a
semi on U.S. 98.
Paul Gregg Jr., 26, Lakeland,
was listed in serious condition
late Thursday.
The crash occurred at 9:10
a.m. about 10 miles south of
Lorida at Lock Access Road.
"I just bought my truck two
weeks ago," Juan Caceres, of
Plantation, said, explaining that
he was overtaking the crane


southbound on the two-lane
highway. .
With blood on his legs and,
his left. elbow bandaged,
Caceres stood next to his over-
turned truck, explaining that the
crane turned left-in front of him
at Lock Access Road.
"This guy just crossed in
front of me," he said, explaiin-
ing, that he was headed home
with an empty trailer. "No sig-
nal. Nothing. He just turned. I
tried to skid but it was too late."
Caceres' "reefer" truck a
refrigerated trailer -struck the
crane's cab, ejecting its driver.
Caceres' truck tipped over


onto the driver's side and slid
.about 100 feet, stopping 30-40
feet from and parallel to a
Gulfstream Natural Gas System
valve station.
Chris Calvert, Gulfstream
district manager out of
Palmetto, said there is minimal
risk of a valve station being
damaged enough to result in the
discharge of natural gas.
The site is one of several
such safety and maintenance
work stations along the 240
miles of underground pipeline
in Florida.

Domestic violence victims need not endure alone


Emotional,

financial help is

available
By PHIL.ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In 1994, Cyndi
Dassinger was the only
Highlands County Courthouse
clerk to file emergency requests
for domestic violence injunc-
tions.
Now, she's one of two.
"We're understaffed," she
said Monday at the Law Week
free seminar on domestic abuse
laws.
She sees more reports
because under Florida's
Violence Against Women's Act,
domestic violence victims only


need "reasonable cause" to say
they may be harmed.
Get away
Dassinger said state or local
agencies refer victims to the
clerk for a domestic violence
injunction, but the person must
swear an oath that she, or he, is
in fear of imminent danger from
another.
Dassinger said Clerk of the
Courts L.E. "Luke" Brooker
makes sure requests get to a
judge by the end of the business
day. Likewise, if judges grant
an injunction, it's sent to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office immediately to be served
on the person in question.
Often the other party is in
shock at getting it, Dassinger
said, so a deputy: must read


injunctions aloud.
Write it out
When people come to
Dassinger, they start telling her
what happened. She has to force
them to write it down. A judge
will only grant an injunction
based on what is written in the
complaint. If it's not written,
the judge can't consider it.
"I stop them from telling me
because they'll think they
already told it," Dassinger said.
By law, she can't write it for
someone. People who don't
speak English need to bring a
translator to write it for them,
she said. ,
Hearings are usually in 15
days 9 a.m. Thursday. If
the request meets legal stan-
dards for domestic violence, a


judge grants the injunction,
which it starts immediately.
Get help
The.clerk, sheriff's office and
Department of Children and
Families can refer someone to a
victim's advocate program,
such as the Highlands County
Safe House, for emotional or
financial help.
However, Dassinger said
most victims only want the
injunction.
Even though the Florida
Victim's Compensation Fund
gathered $114,370 in 2005,
local victims asked for and got
$45,000 for counseling, med-
ical expenses, or loss of
income.
The remaining $69,000 went
elsewhere,,Dassinger said. She


LeConey to landlords: Don't take law into your own hands


* Mobile home lot rental a
complex set of laws, coming
Sunday
By PHIL AlTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING After two
years of hurricanes, several
landlords and tenants have vis-
ited the Highlands County.
Courthouse Law Library for
help dealing with each other.
Each case is different, but
Florida law provides tenants
and landlords with some gener-
al rules.
'Scott LeConey, attorney with
Swain. Hams, and Sheehan in
Sebnng. told visitors to
Tuesday'_, Law Week seminar
on landlord and tenant law that
the best way to prevent disputes
and resolve legal matters-quick-
ly is a written lease.

tract, sertinr terms for rental:

and orderhl and using appli-
ances responsibly: No drying
socks in the o'en.
Tenants are also expected to
conduct themselves in a civi.-
lized manner, LeeConey said,.
e en though that's somewhat
haid lt. detme :
Repairs
During the hurricane, nmin\
tenants wanted to stop paying
rent until the damage was fixed.
They have to give notice,.
LeConey said -- e\ en d.i\ s at
,least -- if they v ani to conimtinm
renting the d%%elling ajfte
repairs are done.
If the dwelling is "untenable"
uninhabitable the..tenant


is allowed to move out and hold
right to the dwelling until it's
fixed, again. \\ ith proper notice
The tenant, must also give
seven days notice before ending
a lease when a landlord isn't
doing maintenance or not meet-
ing other obligations, LeConey
said. .
Typically, a landlord will lose:
the tenant or incur aijbilitm if he
or she doesn't fi\ problems. so
it's in their best interest to do
so, he said.
Access
A landlord ma\ enter a rental'
unit without perrrision only in
an emergency. LeCone. said.
such s a lire or broken w\iater or,
gas pipes
Othci, ise. a landlord ni.st
request permission 'from the.
tenant 12 hours in advance to
-do repairs or maintenance. With
tenant consent, a landlord can
'isi with less notice, as lonP
and the tenant is home.L.,
If the tenant has not been
home for half the time of the
rental duration .- such as' 15
days of a monthly rental a
landlord can enter without con-
sent.

Eviction- *
Without written letse, fen-'
ants and landlords both hai\ e
l'ewer protections. LeConey
said.


Typically, failure to pay rent
only requires a three-day
notice. especially if the tenant
hasn't nude any mention of
problems on site.
Typically, Flonda law states
tenants must get notice of half
of the rental period before evic-
tion. For a \eekl- rental, that's.
seen dJ\S. '
The one thing landlords
should ne\er to is \\hat
LeCoriey calls -self-help reme-
dies," such as changing locks,
shutting off po% er or % ater (or
both), taking off the front door
or pittmin furniture out on the
' street. .
Doing that makes a landlord
liable for damages up. to three
times the rental amount for each
tenant. For a family of fi'e on a
It)0 per month rental. that's
$1,500 per person, or $7,500.
If an owner shuts off po..er,
he or she \%ill pa\ the reconnect
fee. ; ,
S"Don't do anm thing ito a tein-
ant) tintil the gu) in the black
robe (a judge) says, 'You're

wants more local victims to
take advantage of this.
Richard S. Pipkin, attorney,
said that any victim of crime,
who has insurance, can also get
copaynriets waived for medical
needs, once he or she is certi-"
flied as a crime victim by the
State Attorney's Office.

Follow law
Pipkin said anyone can call
police to a domestic violence
incident. Law enforcement
must investigate.
Florida statutes define
domestic violence as an assault
or battery (simple, aggravated
or sexual), stalking; kidnap-
ping, false imprisonment or an
act done causing injury or death
against a fellow family or
household member.
If officers determine domes-
tic violence occurred, someone
is going to jail, Pipkin said.
There is no bond, initially. If
granted, an arrested must have
no contact with the victim and


follow other conditions, such as
batterer's intervention.
Domestic violence starts as a
misdemeanor, but can become a
felony if severe, or if the victim
is under age 16 or over 65.
The law also covers dating,
sexual and repeated violence
injunctions. With repeat vio-
.lence, the victim doesn't have
to know the suspect. In a rare
case, Dassinger. said, a cus-
tomer stalked a cashier because
he thought he knew her.
Penalties include a minimum
five days in jail, Pipkin said, up
to several years in prison in
severe cases.

To report domestic violence, call
law enforcement or dial 911. For
an injunction, contact the Clerk
of the Courts, Highlands County
Courthouse, Room 102, at 402-
6723. For assistance, call the
Highlands County Safe House at
386-1167 or the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Victim's
Advocate Unit at 402-6855.

School Auditorium.
Following the three-day

be the grand finale.
World renowned clowns
from all over the country will
attend, having served as lectur-
ers for the Escapades. These
famous clowns also will per-
form alongside seasoned
clowns, and brand new clowns
alike.
Albin "Big Al" Pelski, show
chairman, said,that folks can
expect lots of fun.. ,
"This will be an all star show
- unprecedented. We did this
two years ago and it was stand-
ing room only," he said. "The
feedback; was wonderful from
the audience." ;

Linda 'Snookie' Peck, of Avon Park, and Shirley 'Joy' Glenn, of

"I want to encourage people

meet the clowns," Pelski said.
"And everybody who comes

mal balloon to take home."
Those who attended the first

"They were fantastic last

Pelski is .also enthusiastic
about a special mime routine by

"They have been working on

Chinese student discovers love of science in physics


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK At first
glance, Jian Wen seems like the
typical South Florida Com-
munity College student: balanc-
ing classes, busy with home-
work, and trying to.choose the
university he'll attend once he
completes his associate in arts
degree this summer.
But the polite, unassuming
young man has a remarkable
story. Having come to Sebring
from China eight years ago, he
became convinced of the value
of education and, one step at a
time, is using it to change his
life.
Initially, Wen's future seem-
ed to be cast. As a teenager, he
arrived in Sebring with his par-
ents, Ming Tong Wen and Bab
Yu Xie, to work in his uncle's
restaurant in Sebring. Today at
age 23, he is heading into a dif-
ferent profession. He sees him-
self as a researcher in the field
of engineering, inventing prod-
ucts that protect the environ-
ment.
Wen has come a long way
from the shy young man who
found himself uprooted from
the fifth-largest city in China,
Guangzhou, to small-town rural
America, who dropped out of
high school to work, and who,
eventually, came to SFCC look-
ing fort a way to fit in and
improve his circumstances.
"I was kind of lost back.
then," Wen said of his early
teenage years. "I was totally
different. I was a quiet' child
already. I didn't have many
friends."
The transition was a culture
shock,, he said. After spending
his freshman and sophomore
years at Heartland Cl:tiian i
School. Wen dropped out to
work full time. Recognizing his
need to speak English fluently,
Weri began taking English for
Speakers of Other Languages
iESOCL classes at SFCC Once
his ability to communicate in
English improved, he came

Jian Wen stands in front of the South Florida Community College Media Center, where he spends much of his time studying between classes.,
Wen knew little English when, as a teenager, he came to,the United States from China. Now, the math whiz is preparing to complete his asso-
ciate in arts degree and then pursue his bachelor's degree in engineering.


back to SFCC to earn his
General Equivalency Diploma.
The new high school gradu-
ate then enrolled at SFCC with
the expectation of getting a
degree an associate in arts
degree in business. Once he
took a physics class with Erik
Christensen, chair, Natural
Sciences, his plans changed
again. He got hooked on. sci-
ence.
"He showed me how interest-
ing science can be and how
physics can be applied to every-
thing in your life. YoU can" do
something with it, and help
other people," Wen said. He
decided to major ill engineering
instead.


The respect between student
and professor is mutual.
Christensen, for his part,
describes Wen as a model stu-
dent who is currently maintain-
ing better than a 100 percent in
his University Physics II class.
"He's the kind of student
who makes teaching a pleas-
ure," Christensen said. "He
comes up with probing, in-
depth questions. He works well
with other students in the labs.,
He likes seeing how math can
be applied to real life. That's
-what physics is all about."
Wen's hard work and intelli-
gence was -acknowledged re-
cently at SFCC's annual Awards
Day. He received two awards:


for being the outstanding stu-
dent in Calculus I and
University Physics I and II.
Even as he has pursued a col-
lege degree, Wen has dealt with
family obligations. He met and
married his wife, Hong Fei Qu,
and then took time off from
school to make the legal
arrangements for her to join
him in the United States, a
process that took about a year.
She now helps him by driving;
him from their home in Sebring
to calculus and chemistry, cla"ss-
es 'he is tlkAiii .at PolklCom-
munity College and Nassau
Community College in Sara-
sota. He uses the time to study.
In the meantime, he is apply-


ing to the schools of engineer-
ing at the.University of Florida
and the University of Michigan.
If he ends up in the north, he
envisions himself enjoying
something he has rarely experi-
enced: snow.
"Southern China is very
warm," Wen said, much like
Florida. "I want to go some-
where different. I like cold
places."
Even more, he wants to use
his education to benefit others.
'"Restaurant work is hard ork,
and you help one person at a
lime." \\en sjid, "'\ith engi-
neering ou can have an impact
on man\. people, all at one
time."

Harder Hall not

threatened with

foreclosure

By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Harder Hall is
not being threatened with fore-
closure, according to property
owners.
City attorney Mike Swaine
on Thursday did not substanti-
ate that statement. Swaine said
a routine letter (required in the
original agreement) was being
mailed out Friday requesting
certain financial information
from Harder Hall owners and
that it has nothing to do with
the council meeting Tuesday
night.
Council member Margie
Rhoades asked that the city
make sure of its time lines for
the payment of the loan and
other things that might be a
concern, "such as work stop-
page. There doesn't seem to be
anything going on and make
sure that we are covered."
City records keeper Barbara
Hines confirmed Friday that a
total of $72,920 has been paid
in interest on the Housing and
Urban Development loan, that
payments are made as billed
and that they are current.
"In our original agreement
with HUD and the city of
Sebring we were told that those
payments would begin in 2006;
however, in 2005 we were
informed that they would begin
earlier and we have complied,"
Kevin Taylor said.
Pat Taylor added, "As to the
rumor of there being no work
going on at Harder Hall ... of
course, there is working going
on. However, Harder Hall busi-
ness was not on the city council
agenda; if it had been we would
have been invited to respond to
these rumors."
General Manager Ross
Burke said they. are shooting
for a fall opening. ,
Pat Taylor reports that work
in progress includes: bathroom
installations of black and white
marble banjo vanities with
white-porcelain inset vessels
(sinks) and unique stainless
steel faucets. The floors are
being covered v. ih diagonal
patterns of 12-by-12 tile with
4-by-4 key inserts. The walls
have white tile with the key on
diagonal.
Forty-four standard rooms in
the north wing and 22 rooms in
the tower are receiving this
bathroom treatment along with
white marble flooring.
The Taylors also said that the
carpet and furniture have
arrived for the great room, the
lobby and all of the north wing
and the tower. The custom-
made bar and front desk as well
as the custom-made restaurant
bar have arrived.

Alan Jay debuts 2007 Cadillac Escalade


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING With an alu-
minum 6.2 liter Vortec V8
engine, 403-hp and 417 pound-
feet of torque, a driver would
expect the 2007 Cadillac
Escalade to lean into the curves.
It doesn't, said David T..
Scott, sales and leasing consult-
ant with Alan Jay Cadillac. It
drives like a Coupe de Ville.
A single frame construction
makes it more stable in curves
and bumpy roads, Scott said. A
computer-controlled road-sens-
ing suspension with auto-level-
.ing helps keep the car level,
even with heavy passenger,.
cargo loads or while towing.
Plus, StabiliTrak, an electronic.
stability control system with
"rollover mitigation," senses
conditions that could result in
losing control, including poten-
tial rollovers.
It then adjusts braking and
power to shift the center of
gravity to the opposite side of
the car.
General Motors also'
increased distance between the
Wheels three inches in the
front-and an inch in the rear -
for greater stability.,
Scott said the' Escalade also
has no front-end lift or back-
wheel spin during hard acceler-
ation.
Randy Leonard, operations
manager for the Alan Jay
Automotive Network, said the
brand .has worked hard to keep
core customers while attracting
younger drivers.
The 2007 Escalade has
chrome accents, top to bottom
the. roof rack, side mirrors
door handles, grill, trim, run-~
ning board.; and i heels. The
all-new interior ill staN unique

to Cadillac, Scott said. General
Motors won't adapt it for any
other make. -
Pete DuPriest, sales and leas-
ing consultant with Alan Jay
Cadillac, said several Escalade
buyers immediately outfit it
with larger wheel rims and tires.
Cadillac will now offer those
larger rims and wheels as an
option, allowing customers to
keep the-Cadillac emblem and
style.
Estimated fuel economy\ is 3
miles per gallon in the city anid
197 on the highway, although
official Environmental Protec-
tion Agency estimates are not
available. DuPriest estimated
mileage at.14 in the city and 18
on the hiehrm aY for an all-wheel
drive Escalade; 18 in the city
and 24 on the highway for two-
wheel drive.
Second row seats now lean
back much further and rear
seats fold for storage space.
DuPriest showed how the
automatic opening/closing rear
hatch stops and goes back up if
it encounters at. obstacle, like
his head.
Another safety feature, side-
impaqt airbags, deploy at the
point of impact, and then on
both sides for all three rows of
seats. The thinking, DuPriest
said, is that a car hit from the
side will slide into another
obstacle, and passengers need
to be cushioned.
Like most Cadillacs, the
Escalade has OnStar and XM
sateUite r dio \%ith a 14-speakert
surroiun'found sN tern. It also

And despite all this, Cadillac
has found ways to lower the
price. The one featured in the
Alan Jay Cadillac showroom on
April 20 included a navigation
system and rear-view camera
- which can help a person see
the ball hitch of a trailer for
$62,000, The base price for the
Escalade, however, is in the
$57,000 range.
Alan Jay Cadillac has three

weeks and has another -13
ordered.
A long-wheelbase, Subur-
ban-length. Escalade ESV
model ,sill follow later this
year, as will an Escalade EXT,
based "on the iChevrolet
Avalanche, using the Midgate,
which allows, it to switch
between sport utility vehicle
and pickup.


-S..-~-"""" --""S


Trimmed in chrome from the roof rack to the running boards, Cadillac's 2007 Escalade combines com-
fort and st le %%ith cargo capacity and stability. An aluminum 6.2 liter Vortec V8 engine produces 403hp
and 417 pound-feet of torque, but a single frame construction makes it more stable in curves and bumpy
roads. Plus, StabiliTrak, an electronic stability control systemwith 'rollover mitigation,' senses condi-
tions that could result in losing control, and adjusts braking and power to shift the center of grasilt to
the opposite side of the car, reducing the risk of rollovers.

Several months ago, a7M
friend of mine gave me an
animal print blouse and
khaki colored slacks to wear u
with it. This outfit has
become one of my favorite
sets of play clothes.
Last weekend, the lunch
bunch visited Solomon's
Castle (solomonscastle.com)
in Ona. Mr. Solomon and
family ensured that we4 .-
enjoyed our visit, first with
the scrumptious food (andF_

displayed throughout the
grounds delighted me; I
thoroughly enjoy puns. The
versatility of his talent is
overwhelming.,

Always look for the good in life


I once heard someone's defi-
nition of a pessimist. It went
like this, "A pessimist is a man
who wears both a belt and sus-
penders and still expects his
pants to fall down." I try to be a
realist, but If you remember
years ago in the infancy of
space travel that many people
were skeptical about space trav-
el. Even in my youth after man
had walked on the moon, I
remember wondering if it was
just some Hollywood illusion.
"If God had intended men to be
on the moon, he would have put
them there in the beginning."
Richard "Pek" Gunn, who
was the poet laureate of
Tennessee, said, "I passed a
sand lot yesterday, some kids
were playing ball: I strolled


along the third base
line, within the field-
er's call. 'Say, what's
the score?' I asked
the chap. He yelled
back, 'There's no one
out, the bases are
loaded and they're 42
to nothing.' 'You're
getting beat, aren't
you my lad?' And in
no time flat, he
answered, 'No sir,
not as yet, our side
ain't come to bat.' "
Regardless of what
happens in life, look
for the good and usu-

ally you will find it. A positive
thinker does not refuse to rec-
ognize the negative, he refuses
to dwell on it. Positive thinking
is a form of thought, which


habitually looks for
the best results from
the worst conditions.
It is always possible
to look for something
good, to expect the
best for yourself
although things look
bad. The remarkable
fact is that when you
seek good, most of
the time you will find
it.
What's the score in
your game of life?
Forty-two to nothing,
or haven't you come


to bat yet? You see one attitude
represents defeat, 42 to nothing,
the other represents positive
thinking, we haven't come to
bat yet.


I remember when I coached
little league baseball, my think-
ing was and I tried to convey it
to the kids, don't swing at wild
balls or you may make an out,
but go down swinging.
I hope as I get closer to enter-
ing the sunset years of my life, I
will always have a positive out-
look. I haven't come to bat yet.
My best wishes to you.
"All things work together for
good to those who love God, to
those who are called according
to His purpose," Romans 8:28

Lake Placid students meet 'Top Model' Murphy


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID Across
the school gymnasium from the
News-Sun table, Lake Placid
Middle School students leaned
closer to meet a true celebrity,
someone on par with a finalist
in the American Idol competi-
tion.
At Wednesday's Career Fair,
girls and some boys -
quickly recognized a tall, stun-
ning woman entering the huge
room that was filled with
dozens of career choices.
Shortly after 10 a.m., Lake
Placid Middle School teacher
Rick Murphy escorted his
daughter, Christina Murphy,


into the crowd of milling chil-
dren and adults. A few feet
inside the gym, a group of girls
surrounded Christina Murphy
with photographs she gracious-
ly autographed to the delight of
her young fans.
After all, Murphy graduated
from a high school, not far from
Lake Placid Clewiston so
her national status as a leading
contestant on UPN's "Top
Model Four" reality show
meant many students were
awaiting her arrival at the fair.
Besides, not many middle
school career fairs feature an
internationally recognized
model who considers the
Mercedes-Bend Fashion Week


competition on par with the
Super Bowl.
To those girls and boys -
who might be considering mod-
eling as a career, she advised
that they be "smart about it and
avoid scams that ask you to pay
thousands of dollars to become
a model.
"You just have to be persist-
ent and try hard and knock on
doors. There are going to be
tons of times that you are going
to hear 'no,' but some of them
say yes to you."
You might get somewhere if
you are "really meant to be in
this business."
Her tips included "being true
to yourself, be well-grounded,

'I think it's important to follow
your dreams, but keep education
in mind as well:'
CHRISTINA MURPHY, 'Top Model' contestant


and keep your family close by
because you're going to 'need
them in this tough industry."
Something of a. hometown
girl who has had modeling in
her sights since she was about 6
years old, Murphy described
her parallel career paths -
modeling and a college degree
in fashion marketing and public
relations.
On a break from her West
Coast obligations, she hap-
pened to be nearby and accept-
ed her father's invitation to par-
ticipate in this event.
Is it possible that from a rural
area of central Florida an aspir-
ing model has a chance at a
modeling career?
"I know when I was this
young, I don't remember hav-
ing something like this Career
Day in high school, and model-
ing isn't considered a- first
choice for.a career like doctors
and nurses and teachers and so
on, which are all great profes-
sions, but I think they're adding
outside things, so this a great
opportunity for kids to have a
diverse opportunity of careers
to chose from."
At the age 'of 19, she signed
with a European agency and
modeled for her first time, an
international contract that kept
her busy for nearly three years.
Returning to school, she
began her pursuit of her double
major at Florida State
-University.
Top Model took an interest in'


Murphy then, and, as she put it,
"That was that."
Of course, during conversa-
tions with her father, she real-
ized that having a career option
made sense. She put it, "I just
think it's important to get an
education and get a degree
because you never know how,
long this modeling situation is


going to last for you, it's such a
crucial industry, I mean, you're
in one moment and out the next,
and you may come back in or
you may not."
Not all models make enough
money to live on for the rest of
their lives, an important consid-
eration for teenagers blessed
with marketable looks.
"I think having a degree to
fall back on is important in any
industry," she said.
Otherwise, life becomes a bit
like playing the lottery.
She said, "I think it's impor-
tant to follow your dreams, but
keep education in mind as
well."

Aam O. and Evemarriage,






and the Battle of -the ,Sexes


Ever since ,Eve SHE
sent Adam out to H
get that apple, Sheila
because she could-
n't think of any-
thing else to make
for supper, men and women
have been battling. As soon as
Adam arrived back home with
the apple they sat down on their
dining room rock to make a
feast of it, but their meal was
postponed indefinitely by a ter-
rific bolt of lightning that rolled
into their cave, followed by a
thunderclap that shook the very
mountain they called home.
We all know who it was that
made the big fuss, but the point
is, neither one wanted to take
full responsibility for having
broken the rules, so they began
picking on each other. Eve
argued she merely wanted vari-
ety in the meals she prepared.
Adam insisted he planned to
throttle a rabbit for supper, but
Eve forced him to go get the
apple, so it was all her fault.
And so it has been ever since
between men and women.
The inability to understand
what motivates.each other leads
to many a quarrel in an other-
wise peaceful relationship.
Basically a man is a warrior,
and a woman, whether or not
she has a job, is a homemaker.
Actually because the man is a
warrior he is compelled to leave
home to fight battles, and very
often the woman must find a.
way to earn money until the
man returns. This upsets the
man sometimes and has a ten-
dency to wound his delicate
ego, but not badly enough to
keep him from joining in the
fun of going to war.
Once the man is home again,
he goes back to work, but is
frustrated to learn his hard-
earned money may be spent on
a new couch, which he couldn't
care less about. He feels the
money should be spent on a
new boat. The wife is frustrated
to learn that her husband does-
n't think furniture in the home
is important, but after some
wrangling a compromise is
reached. The wife agrees to buy
a less expensive couch so the
husband can put a down pay-
ment on a smaller boat than

Will be happy. This
KR yan sounds good, but
doesn't always
work. The truth is,
both feel cheated. Neither got
what they really wanted, and
this leads to more arguments.
We can blame all the misun-
derstandings that make up the
battle of the sexes on Adam and
Eve and the apple if we want to,
but it would be wiser if we tried
harder to understand each other.
Some couples turn to a mar-
riage counselor or psychiatrist
who will try to make it easier
for them to understand why
they're so different. For
instance, a man usually likes to
watch sports on television,
while his wife is interested in
soap operas, or possibly a con-
cert. She wants to vacation in
Yosemite Park; he votes for
shooting the rapids.
"What if the kids fall out of
the raft?" she asks.
"They'll have life jackets on.
Don't worry. It'll be fun. I don't
understand you. I'm planning a
wonderful, exciting vacation
for all of us and you're throw-
ing cold water on my parade."
She says, "Oh, but I under-
stand you; you're trying to kill
us."
Concessions are suggested,
suggestions are refused, and in
the end, another compromise is
reached. In the new plan the
children are sent to camp, the
husband shoots the rapids, and
the wife opts for the mall, the
beauty parlor and the theater.
Maybe this is the best way to

go. Too much togetherness can
be too much.
Einstein is quoted as saying,
"Marriage is an effort to make a
lifelong commitment from an
incident." That is scary, but if
each partner is granted the per-
sonal freedom to pursue his or
her own changing interests over
the years, without too many
restrictions, the marriage can be
a lot more pleasant and last
longer. Of course it would be'
best if neither attempts to taste
the fruit of forbidden trees, but
that's the gamble you take
when you experience an inci-
dent, and choose a mate for life.

Sleazy attire is not attractive


Girls are you dressed to lure
the guys or are you dressed to
be pure for God? What does
your attire say about you? If
your intention is tq lure, what
or who do you plan .on luring?
Do you know what the boys
think about the way you dress?
Do you know what they are
saying about you? They've
shared some of their feelings.
Boys feel that girls are not
wearing enough clothing. Boys
feel that the half naked attire of
girls is a distraction.
Boys said if girls only knew
what they were thinking, or
what is discussed in the locker
rooms, the park and other hang-
outs, they would be disgusted.
This is why boys who have sis-
ters they care about, don't want
them to dress like a hoochie, a
hoe, a hussy.
The boys speak about the
girls with the double rolls
exposed, and the unsightly.
stretch marks on their exposed
stomach. The comment are that
those are the 'marks associated
with motherhood.
Boys do discuss girls and not
all,,they say, is good. They talk
about the too short skirts that
give them eye access, with full
view. Boys say they don't need
to imagine, as everything is in
plain view and put on display.
They say "that's nasty."


Rehab helped in

speedy recovery

Editor:
I had a new experience last
January .and February, a triple
by-pass surgery, the first major
operation I have had in more
than 75 years. (News-Sun staff
writer) Christopher Tuffley has
already described a stay in the
hospital, so I shall describe a
stay in a rehab center.
The cardiologists have the
heart transplant and bN -pass
process dotn patl. so it as.
pretty much routine; however,,.
the one element I did not antic-
ipate was the swelled legs from
increased fluids from the two
veins taken from my legs. The
fluids built up much faster than
the medication could reduce
them.
I was sent home from the
hospital, a big mistake. I should
have gone straight to the Royal
Care Rehab Center to handle
the fluid build-up. The extra
five days it took to get into
Royal Care. meant five extra
days of pain. and immobility.
Near loss of legs for two weeks
was quite a shock. Constant use
of a walker was a saving grace,
in as much as walking was the
best therapy for my ailment, I
know now about robots that
take one, step at a, measured
time. Tasks that normally took
30 seconds now required two
minutes, but I was able to take
care of my personal needs;
some independence was
sacred. After all, there was no
place to go each day, the only
schedule was meal time and
vital signs medication time.
I wondered why the staff was
so cheerful. I was hurting!
I discovered "restless legs,"
a conditional consequence of
removing veins from the, legs to
complete the by-pass. It would
take about six months for the
vein system to re-establish
itself. Whereupon, the by-pass
was routine (I was up and about
the day after the surgery),
mobility was a problem. I could
not sit nor lie down for long
before the "restless legs" would
start and prompt me to get up
and walk; that was the only
time I felt-"good," circulation
took place and some fluid dissi-
pated.
The first three weeks at
Royal Care, I walked the long
two-and-a-half corridors 12
times a day at all hours; one or
one-and-a-half hours of sleep
were the most I could get at a
time for maybe four to five


Girls with exposed thongs in
school, work and play, are a dis-
traction with sexual implica-
tions. There are boys who can't
wait for a break between class
so that they can get a quick
release.
Why do girls cheapen them-
selves without thinking of the
consequences? They live just
for the moment. Many things
they do are not carefully
thought about. Our girls are
empty, using every imaginable
method to get the attention
craved. "Some one wants to be
with me and if only for sex..
Well, that's my business," said
one girl.
Parents, we are raising, a
nation of positive-attention
deprived girls.
E\perts believe that these are
the behaviors of that inner
secret that these girls are striv-


ing for attention. Parents no
longer cook. Mealtime is a
quick run to the drive through,
for a "biggie size."
Dinner time is eliminated.
Work and after-school activities
are blamed for the declining
family time.
If you look at our society
today, there are angry girls.
Rebelling is America's silent
epidemic. "Girls in despera-
tion." "Girls gone wild." "Girls
acting stupid." Smart girls
"dumming" themselves. Girls
being "over-sexualized.".
"Bulimic girls." "Anorexic
girls."
Parents are unable to see or
learn more about their daugh-
ters because they are seldom
home, which can be attributed
to juggling work, church, night
clubbing, taking care of an
aging parent, taking care of
health challenges, along with
other extracurricular activities.
When they are home, time is
taken up with 'sleeping, doing
the laundry, cleaning, mowing
the lawn, taking out the
garbage, and other housekeep-
ing chores.
The impact of this on our
girls is that they are neglected,
and they feel the neglect. I have
had parents tell me that they,
were unaware that their daugh-
ters were having their penod,


to boys
mothers who did not know that
their daughter needed a bra. It's
as if a film has been built up
over their eyes and they can't
see that their daughters are
developing. It gives the feeling
that puberty crept up suddenly,
without warning. Yet, this
process occurs over a period of
time.
Our girls are not satisfied
with just material things; they
want a sense of belonging'. They
want their mothers to be there
for them, to listen without dis-
tractions, to listen without inter-
rupting, to affirm them, admit-
ting they are wrong when they
know they are wrong. One of.
the things, we as women have
difficulty doing is apologizing
to our children. If and when we
do, the apology is given with
reservation. What is this saying
to them?
It is saying that we don't
value them. All the material
things don't matter, if as parents
we don't place value on our
girls. Evidence shows that if we
devalue our girls, they will find
someone who makes them feel
valuable.

hours a day. I was called the
Marathon Man. The rest of the
time I would read or complete
personal business. Keeping
busy was also good therapy. We
had great neighbors who
brought the mail and newspa-
pers a couple days a week.
On my travels around the
facility, I observed early on that
I was one of the "well" ones at
the rehab center. The patients
were at varied levels of impair-,
ment, from about 95 percent to
25 percent. I was functional at
about 75 percent early on and
improving every day. Although
there was'some pain and immo-
bility, my condition was minor
compared to thbse around me.'
Therapy would resolve the
problem, which was only three
weeks long. ,
I had visited nursing homes
and rehab. centers before, but
this was the first experience of
"on-the-job" observation. From
the journeys around the center
at all hours, even the wee hours
of the night, I was impressed by
the numerous tasks performed
by the registered nurses,
licensed practical nurses, certi-
fied nurse's aides, technicians
and aids, tasks from a to z and
aa to zz.
The staff knew their patients;
the center was like a family.
There were characters and per-
sonalities. I was able to pick up
on "family jokes" here and
there and on the patients' idio-'
syncrasies. Patients had their
good days and bad days. Some
patients appeared to be inco-
herent and immobile, but all of
a sudden they would be quite
lucid and mobile.

be tending patients; even a
patient or two would be in the
hallway. Sometimes there
would be three or four staff
persons tending some emer-
gency.
My release in March was a
happy occasion, because I
could get the house ready for
my wife who was in another
medical facility waiting for me
to come home. It lasted only
two days. My relapse will be
detailed later.

Lipstick doesn't

help this pig

Editor:
In an ongoing effort to put a
happier spin on his Iraq deba-
cle, Big Bush sent Little Bush
and three other loyal republican
straight men on a rigidly script-
ed and carefully choreographed
excursion to some of the safer,
more favorable areas of Iraq,
thus being able to present a
suitably rosy account of their
experience. This is apparently
in line with the philosophy of
"see no evil, hear no evil, say
no evil," to which Bush should
have added "do no evil" three
years ago.
This is nothing but a contin-
uation of the effort by this
administration to minimize the
calamitous results of their inva-
sion of Iraq, and to keep the
attention of the public off of the
thousands of deaths and horrif-.
ic injuries that have ensued, as
well as the huge and rapidly
escalating cost in money of this

It is inescapably apparent.
that this' invasion had a great;

from the area than any humani-,

we must recognize that there'
are reasons, necessary and
noble, for making-the ultimate
sacrifice for our country, but .I
will never believe that they
include ensuring the obscene
profits the oil companies are
receiving nor the multi-million
dollar compensation and retire-
ment packages given to some
oil company executives.
This administration ignores
one important truism that the
citizenry is belatedly but surely
recognizing no matter how
much lipstick you put on the
pig, it is still a pig.

Combat high gas prices with proper tire inflation


This week has
been National Tire
Safety Week. Every
one of us that oper-
ates a motor vehicle
should pay attention
to our tires. The truth
of the matter is that:

three out of four driv-
ers wash their cars
while only one out of

sure.

of their vehicles
Only 15 percent of drivers
properly check their tire infla-
-tion pressure.
More than half of drivers
.55 percent incorrectly
believe that the correct inflation
pressure is printed on the tire
sidewall.
Two out of three drivers
don't know how to tell if their
tires are bald.
71 percent of drivers do
not check their tire pressure in
their spare tire.


Running tires 20

Treadwear grades are an

wear rate. The higher the tread-
wear number is, the longer it
should take for the tread to wear
down.
Traction grades are an indi-
cation of a tire's ability to stop
on wet pavement., A higher
graded tire should allow a car to
stop on wet roads in a shorter
distance than a tire with a lower

highest to lowest as "AA," "A,"

nature (for example, driving long
distances in hot weather), can
cause a tire to deteriorate, lead-
ing to blowouts and tread sepa-
ration. From highest to lowest,
a tire's resistance to heat is
graded as "A," "B," or "C."
Because tires may naturally
lose air over time, it is impor-
tant to check your tire pressure
at least once a month. For con-
venience, purchase .a tire pres-
sure gauge to. keep in your vehi-
cle. Gauges can be purchased at
tire dealerships, auto supply
stores, and other retail outlets.
Remember, the tire inflation
number that vehicle manufac-
turers provide reflects the prop-
er pounds per square inch (psi)
when a tire is cold. To get an
accurate tire pressure reading,
measure tire pressure when the
car has been unused for at least
three hours.
So how do you check your
tire pre-sure?
Step 1; Locate the correct tire
pressure on the tire information
placard or in the owner's manu-
al.
Step 2: Record the tire pres-
sure of all tires.'
Step 3: If the tire pressure is
too high in any of the tires,
slowly release air by gently
pressing on the tire valve with
the edge of 3our tire gauge until
you get to the correct pressure.
Step 4: If the tire pressure is
too low, note the difference
beth een the measured tire pres-
sure and the correct tire pres-
sure. These "missing" pounds
of pressure are what you will
need to.add.
Step 5: At a service stations.
add the 'missing pounds of air
pressure to each tire that is
Underinflated.
Step 6: Check all the tires to
make sure they have the same
air pressure (except in cases in
which the front and rear tirds


are supposed to have different
amounts of pressure).
Your tire maintenance check-
list:
Pressure: Underinflation
can lead to tire failure. It results
in unnecessary tire stress, irreg-
ular wear, loss of control and
accidents. A tire can lose up to
half of its air pressure and not
appear to be flat.
Alignment: A bad jolt from
hitting -a curb or pothole cani
throw your front end out of
alignment and damage your
tires. Have a tire dealer check
t4e alignment periodically to
ensure that your car is properly
aligned.
Rotation: Regularly rotat-
ing your vehicle's tires will help
you achieve more uniform
wear. Unless your vehicle
owner's manual has a specific
recommendation, the guideline
for tire rotation is approximate-
ly every 5,000-8,000 miles.
Tread:., Advanced and
unusual wear can reduce the
ability of tread to grip the road
in adverse conditions. Visually
check, your tires for uneven
wear, looking for high and low
areas or unusually smooth
areas. Also check for signs of
damage.
If you think you may have a

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
April 27, 2001: The Avon
Park Lady Devils secured
spot in the .playoffs by
beating Frostproof 7-1.
With a 16-4 record and the
top seed in the District 11-
3A tournament, Avon Park
was determined to keep
the Bulldogs from pulling
off the upset. With strong
pitcher Allison Kelly on the,
mound, a handful of
Frostproof errors and a
four-run fifth inning, the:
Devils would have little to .
worry about.

25 Years Ago
April 29; 1981: Two runs

Junior College and a tripto
the state baseball tourna-
ment as the Panthers lell to
Florida College in a special
three-gamei playoff. SFCC
beat the Falcons in Temple
Terrace 7-4 the evening
prior, but fell twice by
scores of 11-8 and 6-5 in
the following games.

"Words can't explain how I feel,"
Bierman said. "My hit couldn't have

He can thank his coach' for a batting

Thursday.to tell Bierman that his stance
was too narrow.
"The first swing he had (after the

An age-old question: Who would you pick first?


One of the most frequently
posed questions in informal
sports conversation is the clas-
sic "if you were to start a team
from scratch, A. which plaJ ei
would you take?',4
Better than ho was the
best (fill in the blank ol all
time," it requires an e\tensi' e
knowledge of the athletes of
today and a certain degree of
prognostication. You must not


only have an opinion of who is
the best, but an opinion of how
good that player can become.
The "best-ever" forum
demands impossible compar-
isons of those who played long
-ago to those who play today.
Unless you are Darren
Daulton, existing in multiple
dimensions simultaneously,
this.cannot be done.
As an imaginary G.M., you


have the authority to choose
based on any criteria you deem
significant. Leadership, athleti-
cism, raw statistics or a play-
er's perceived pleasant person-
ality can be your pre-requisites.
Unlike the MVP selection
process, the success of a play-
er's team needn't matter, and
the consensus "best player"
may not even appear on your


With the dwindling populari-
.ty of the NBA, any topic to
stimulate conversation is
refreshing. Regardless, pose
this question in a room full of
sports fans and you'll find
everyone has two cents to con-
tribute.
For me, the basketball choic-
es come down to six players:

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Colt Williams connects, for a two-run single for the IBlue Streaks in the second inning of Thursday's win
over Braden River.


FINAL
Continued from 1E
lead.
Matt Devlin singled home
Albritton and then f Luke
Sedlock grounded to shortstop
to score Perry and the Red
Devils held a 4-0 cushion that
Sedlock would make stand up
for the night.
Sedlock tried to help his
cause with a two-out triple-in
the second. Albritton followed
with a walk, but DeSoto catcher
Daniel Price fired a strike to
second to catch Albritton steal-
ing to end the inning.
Chaviotius Gordon singled in
the bottom of the fourth inning
and Strange doubled to score
his teammate and end the scor-
ing at 5-0.
DeSoto's best scoring chance
came in the fourth. Price sin-
gled with two outs for the first
and only Bulldog hit and
Designated hitter Matt Heine
reached base on an infield error,
but Dustin Orr lifted' a long fly
to center that Albritton caught
for the final out.
When asked about pressure
in the championship game;
Jackson said the real pressure
was on in the semifinal game.
"This is the game," he said.
"Win, lose or draw tomorrow,
we play again."


Jackson referred to the fact
that the district winners and dis-
trict runner-up both advance to
the state tournament field of 23
teams.
' "Now we can relax and just
go out and play baseball," he
said.
' Avon Park and Sebring split
in their regular season games.
The Red Devils lost to the Blue
Streaks 3-1 at home and Avon
Park won 6-5 at Sebring.
Sebring 4
Braden River 2
In a game that was anything
but a showcase of defensive
skill, it was a clutch play in the
field that bailed the Sebring
Blue Streaks out of a jam and
sent' them to the championship
game with a 4-2 win over
Braden River in Thursday's
District 10-4A semifinals.
With the second of the
Pirates' two unearned runs
already across the plate and the
tying run on first, Nick
Maloyed made a running grab
of Kyle Phillips' line drive to
right, then threw a strike to sec-
ond base to double off the lead
runner for a game-ending twin
killing.
It was a much. closer finish
than expected, especially after
the Streaks scored three runs in
the second inning when two
errors set up Chris Welborn's


RBI single to right and Colt,
Williams' two-out, two-run sin-
gle to left.
But the Pirates got their first
unearned run in the fifth against
a tiring Chaz Abeln, who
walked Vincent Keen to, lead
off the inning and then allowed
his first hit. of the game, which
put pinch .runner Chris Garcia
in position to score on a fielding
error.
The Streaks got .out of that
inning with a 6-4-3 double play,
then tacked on a run in the sixth
when J.C. Shoop, who reached
base all three times he went to
the plate, led off with a single
and courtesy runner Justin
Tomlinsori scored .on a throw-
ing error.
Keen's single to lead off the
top of the seventh chased Abeln
for left Cory Ritter, who was
greeted by a single from Mike
Petrilla to bring the tying run to
the plate. A bad throw on a
potential double play allowed
the Pirates to pull to within two
runs before Maloyed made.his
play to end the game.
"They're a good. baseball
team," Sebring coach Hoppy
Rewis said of Braden River, a
Inst-yea.r school in Bradenton
' th nothing but sophomores
and freshmen. "They've played
really good here lately and
they're probably by far the most
iriproved."

Sweet trophies


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring residents (from left) Hayward Sanders, Adam Wallace, Hubert Holdman and Stanley
Holdman proudly show off the trophies that they brought home from the Sugar Festival horseshoe
competition Saturday afternoon. This is the fifth year the men have won the horseshoes event. The
festival, which takes place in Clewiston is an annual event, marking the end of the sugarcane harvest.


FIRST
Continued from IE
Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade,
Tim Duncan and Dirk
Novitski. Out of these players,
I'd take LeBron, although I
believe Duncan is the most
impactful player of the bunch.
Novitski offers incompara-
ble matchup problems, Kobe is
the scoring virtuoso, Nash has
the speed and leadership every
team covets, and Wade does it
all. My logic for taking James
hinges on age, potential, and
guard-play.
While Kobe certainly isn't
old, there's the prima-donna
complex to deal with. Quality
guard play improves total wins
more than any other position,.
and while it's hard to pass up
an aging Shaq and Allen
Iverson, James figures to get
better and better.
Big men must be fed the
ball, and ball-hogs like A.I.


have trouble distributing it.
For that same reason, evalu-
ating any football position
other than quarterback for this
game seems silly. However,
intangibles come into play,
mucking up the process like no
other' position in team sports.
The statistical king of the past
five years is clearly Payton
Manning.
Focus on championships,
and you have Tom Brady's
three-ring knuckle sandwich'
coming at, you.
Want explosiveness and
mobility? Michael Vick is your
man.
The NFL's LeBron James is
Ben Roethlisberger, a young
sturdy quarterback capable of
anything who's stock is rising.
He is my football pick.
Baseball is enjoying a mini-
era of youthful vigor. Young
stars are popping 'up every-
where, and in the next two
years we'll have a dozen new
superstars whose names we


barely recognize now. I like
David Ortiz, who may be the
most emotionally influential
player in any sport.
Alex Rodriguez's Hall of
Fame trajectory is certain and
Vladimir Guerrero offers m6fe
plate coverage than any hitter
in the modern game.
For me, the argument for
baseball's best begins and ends
with Albert Pujols. Young,
powerful, consistent, dynamic,
and charismatic, the defending
National League MVP has it
all.
I've tried this game with
hockey, but I've found it scat-
ters the room faster than a dead
rodent. Those who stick around
usually stare into space with
open, drooling mouths.
Try it at home. It's fun.
