Baby's life hangs in balance


Doctors come

through with

offer of surgery

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING A baby boy, whose fam-
ily lives in the SpringLake community,
was facing what would appear to be cer-
tain death -when a Florida hospital,
which was capable of performing a life-
sji ing '.ur'er',, refused to accept him.
Ed, in D)iaz ~ .is born with a rare dis-
ease knovn as megacystis hypoperistal-
sis rmcrocolon. which prevents proper
!tin, I".,Otun;' ul the !h!.].-!.Jer and digestive


system.
At 10mnonths old, he lus jlread\ li\ ed
longer than many with this condition.
According to an article at www.thefe
tus.net, only about 6 percent li\e to see
their first birthday.
Whether or not Diaz reaches that
milestone remains to be seen; but finally
his name will be added to a donor wait-
ing list.
"He needs a bladder, intestines, and a
liver. But he isn't on the organ transplant
waiting list because in order to get on the
list you have to have a surgeon to do-the
procedure and a facility in which it will
be done," Diaz' grandmother Diana
Acevedo said last \ eelk.
After spending the majority of his
young life in Tampi General Hospital,
where he has undergone sr. surgeries,
.cedui said that they ":eric tenered to


The Uni\ersitI of Miami's Jackson
Memorial Hospital.
"They (Tampa General) had sent him
home saying there was nothing they
could do for him about two months ago,"
Diana Acevedo said.
That was when hospice stepped in -
something that only happens when death
is imminent.
"We had little hope at the time. Then
we found out about this specialist at
Jackson Memorial Hospital the only
place in the state able to do the surgery.
But our balloon was busted because they
said they couldn't see him."
Jackson Memorial Hospital a high-
ly 'recommended facility has every-
thing necessary to perform the multi-vis-
ceral transplant.
In January 2005, according to an
0 _ihidi,-Sientel 'artcle- -found by


Acevedo during one of her many online
research sessions, an 11-month-old
Japanese boy was gieen a liver, pan-
creas, stomach, small and large intes-
-tines, and a spleen at the University of
Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Another article at the same Web site
told of another multi-visceral transplant
on a baby from Italy done at the facility.
Diaz' grandmother and his mother,
Crystal Acevedo, 20, weie frustrated by
the fact that they were facing losing
Edwin because, as they explained, the
hospital wouldn't agree to accept the
medical coverage the baby had, saying
that he was "out of their district."

waited for her baby's e'.ami nation b\ his
local pediatrician, Dr. Praveen

SEBRING It is that time
of year the clocks have been
set forward, major league base-
ball's season has begun, alliga-
tors are laying their eggs, and
graduations are just around the
comer. It is spring.
That can mean only one thing
- the Alan Jay Automotive
Network is taking names for its
seventh annual car give-away
contest.
A high quality, previously
owned, Chevrolet Cavalier will
be given to one lucky winner at
each of Highlands 'County's
public high schools. The draw-
ing to be held .during gradua-


tibn ceremonies.
For fun and school spirit,
Alan Jay makes an effort to find
automobiles in each school's
color.
These cars are a gift, not on
lease. All a student has to do is
pay for insurance.
If the insurance is covered by
the parent's policy, then the car,
for legal reasons, will be in the
parent's name. Otherwise there
are no strings attached.
Cars only are given out; no
cash substitutes.
.Randy Leonard, operations
manager for Alan Jay
Automotive Network, said the
contest is most rewarding when
a student's life is changed by


winning.
For example, last year, one
winner would not have been
able to go to culinary school in
south Florida if he hadn't won a
car to get him there.
Any high school senior wish-
ing to enter the contest has only
to bring a copy of his or her
third quarter report card to
Saturn Of Sebring at 400 U.S.
27 N.
Alan Jay staff will go over
the report cards. Each student
will receive a certified ticket for
each A earned during the first
three school quarters. Four
"A"s four certified tickets,
24 "A"s 24 certified tickets,
and so on (final quarter "A"s


could not be included due to
logistical difficulties).
Leonard has coordinated this
program for years, with the help
of Kay Russo.
"Of our many programs," he
said, this is one of my treas-
ured ones."
He feels sure that the pro-
gram has provided students
with a reason to earn better
grades. "The number of A's stu-
dents earn has increased pro-
portionately over time. I think
that proves it's, an incentive."
Leonard added that this is not
the only program Alan Jay sup-
ports that, in fact, the com-
pany and the company's owner,
Alan Jay Wildstein, are 'deeply


committed to education and
young people.
"For the third year we are
doing presentations in schools,
teaching sophomores and jun-
iors how to buy and finance a
car wisely," Leonard said.
"We provide two cars to each
high school's driver's education.
program. And have adopted the
Fred Wild Elementary School.
"In addition we are a big
sponsor of the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce
Scholarship program."
All report cards have to be at
Saturn of Sebring at 400 U.S.
27 N., by Friday in order to be
eligible.

Law Day becomes time to


remember good servants


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING This year's
Law Day celebration took a
more somber tone from last
year.
Circuit Judge J. David
Langford said it well at Friday's
Law Day Luncheon at the
Sebring Civic Center by stating
the Highlands County Bar
Association "suffered two real-
ly great losses" last year: Judge
Clifton Kelly, and Bar
Association President Jani
Seamans Branham.,
For natives of Highlands
County, "Judge Kelly was 'The
Man,'" Langford said. He had a
love for the common man and
simple justice.
Branham, who received the
Judge Clifton M. Kelly Award
at last year's Law Day, three
months before her death. want-
ed to see attorneys and judges
teach civic involvement to stu-
dents.
Also, in the year before,
Judge Kelly died, she took time
to visit him before and after he


had heart surgery both in,
Orlando and at his home in
Lakeland.
"She'll always have a place
in my heart for that," his son,
attorney Jim Kelly, said. "She'll
be in the hearts of a lot of folks
here."
This year, the Judge Kelly
Award went to atiorne\ Robert
Swaine for his work with chil-
dren through Teen Court, 'not
only in Gadsden County while
he was in college, but also in
Highlands County. He was glad
to know Judge Kelly in his life-
time, but didn't have words to
express his thanks ,for the
award.
County Administrator Carl
Cool received the annual Law
Day Award, because of his
work balancing the needs of
county government, law
enforcement, the courts, and
other government branches.
Cool had nothing to, add,
except his pleasure working,
with all of the various local
government entities. '
Attorneys, also honored


Nancy Thomas for her work
organizing the event each year.
She said Highlands County,
though such events, builds
some excellent citizens.
Also, Florida Supreme Court
Chief Justice Barbara Pariente
returned, not only to honor
Branham, but to interact with
students during the Law Day
events.
Pariente hopes Americans
can remedy the 'fact that only 59
percent of adults can identify
the branches of government,
and less than half of those can
explain separation of powers.
She said 75 percent of high
- school students don't realize
their First Amendment rights --
or oppose them or even
oppose judicial review of laws.
Judges must have that power,
to ensure laws are fair and
impartial; Pariente said. Such
involvement with the law has to
start at the community level -
taught in the schools.
"We value this,' Pariente
said. "Even if it's not on the
FCAT, we value this."

eral Michael Takac said that if,

Outdoor


Drama to


sponsor


summer


camp
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Chris
Parsons, artistic consultant of
Florida Heartland Heritage
Foundation, announced this
week that the Florida outdoor
drama company will sponsor a
theater arts camp this summer
to be held at South Florida
Community College campus in
Lake Placid from June 19-30.
"As the FLORIDA! outdoor\
drama moves toward its inau-
gural season," Parsons said,
"we will be having many distin-
guished performance artists and
technicians, craftspersons and
design specialists becoming
available in our county. The
board of directors felt that spon-
soring a camp would be a good
educational use of these talent-
ed individuals."
The two-week'program will
.be open to those of middle
school, high school and college
ages and will offer sessions on
acting, directing, music, dance,
voice/speech, sound, lighting,
costuming, stage. combat, set
building, scene painting and
make-up. Students will also
have outstanding recreational
and educational opportunities,
including a swim party, an
archaeology dig, a backstage
tour of Highlands Little Theatre
and picnics. :
Two prominent Lake Placid
businesswomen volunteered to
serve as chairwomen of the
camp: Debra Rutledge, former
o6\ ner of Hair Works, and Rita .

Coldwell Banker Highlands

"The SFCC campus in Lake
Placid offers a wonderful facili-
ty for the camp," said
Youngman, who met April 20
with Randy Paeplow, Lake
Placid center director, to final-
ize details.
"'There is a fine dance studio,
a computer lab, plenteous class-
rooms, an amphitheatre/choral
arena for our vocal and acting
practices and plenty of outdoor
space," she added. ,"And the
staff is so cooperative!,"
Students will ,have a choice
of six of 12 theatre programs
and will work as teams to pro-
duce a short, one-act play at the'
end of two weeks. They will
showcase their skills in a final
presentation at 7 p.m. Friday,
June 30, at the college. The per-
formance is free of charge and
open to' the public.
Rutledge, who is arranging
for student meals, among other
duties, said, "Our lunches will
be favorite meals of young peo-
ple such as pizza and chicken


nuggets and will be included in
the. cost of the camp."
The camp fee also will
include two field trips. On June
22, students will be transported
to Highlands Little' Theatre
where executive director
Vanessa Logsdon will conduct
a unique back-stage tour. On
June 29, Anne Reynolds, out-
door drama board member and

SEBRING County com-
missioners have rezoned grove-
land on the comer of Highlands
Avenue and DeSoto Road for
light-industrial use.
Kenneth Haynes, acting for
mother Marjorie Y. Haynes, got
8.5-acre parcel approved for
change Tuesday amid mixed
recommendations. The
Planning and Zoning
Commission said the county
should approve it. Development
Services staff said no.
Jim Polatty, development
services director, said the land
would be good transition
between Francis II Mobile
Home Park to the west of the
road and Jim Reed's Auto
Salvage to the east of the prop-
erty. He said commercial devel-

opment would be more appro-
priate.
Cliff Rhoades, attorney for
Haynes, said the site is excel-
lent for light industrial uses,
which include processing or
manufacture of food, electron-
ics, tobacco, jewelry, medical
supplies, household items,
leather, or liquors, or auto-body
repair.
He said the mobile home
park may "go by the way over
time."
Rick Ingler, representing the
Federation of Manufactured
Home Owners of Florida Inc.,
District 6, said the county needs
to consider notputting industri-
al uses near some of the coun-
ty's remaining affordable hous-
ing. Likewise, Lee Atkins of
Sebring said the mobile home
park is self-owned, so it's less
likely to disintegrate, and said
commercial would serve the
surrounding mobile home parks
better than industrial.
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart moved to deny the
request, in part because the
Housing Department had iden-
tified that area as a perfect spot
for affordable housing and is a
main entryway to the down-
town shopping and schools.
"This is almost a sustained
community by itself," she said.
"To introduce industry to this


area is not compatible."
However, no other commis-
sioner would second her
motion.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy
said he didn't want to micro-
manage that area. He believes
light-industrial, if built with the
right buffers,, will have a good
impact.
Commissioners Edgar Stokes
said he thought the parkway,
when built, will be a good
buffer. Rhoades said property
would have city water and
sewer, and the developer would
put in a 10-foot landscape
buffer along the completed
Sebring Parkway, which will
also take the first two rows of
trees from the grove along
Highlands Avenue.
Commissioners agreed to
that, but that didn't please
In,_le r
"I've very disappointed that
you don't take more upon your-
selves," he said. "(You) show a
lack of respect for these peo-
ple", '
. Stewart was thankful the
applicant was not asking for an
industrial park, but noted that
more intense uses have more
safeguards in the county code.
Commissioners voted 3-2 in
favor, with dissenting votes'
from Stewart and
Commissioner Bob B ulla rd.

Jail recoi

News-Sun
SEBRING Sheriff Susan
Benton has reported a lull in
inmate population.
During the last three months,
the Highlands County Jail has
averaged 372 inmates, well
below .the inmate capacity.
Over that time, the jail
booked in 1,788 people, but
released 1,660. Some of those
were multiple arrests, Benton
said, and most of those released
were either on probation, pre-
trial release or on the work
release program.
Benton warned county com-
missioners on Tuesday that a
lull is usually followed by a
spike in population.-Before that
happens, she hopes to recoup
some revenue by housing out-
of-county inmates at $50 per
day.
Major David Paeplow,

er, said the jail accepted 15

2nd Division U.S. Marine Band to



'invade' Highlands County in May


Special to the News-Sun
* SEBRING The 2nd
Division United States Marine
Band will return to the
Kenilworth Lodge for a full
weekend, of music and fun in
Highlands County. The 42
Marines, based at Camp
Lejeune in North Carolina, just
recently returned a seven-
mbnth long tour of duty in Iraq.
The 2nd Division also came to
the Kenilworth in 2004, and
were warmly welcomed by
Highlands County.
The band, led by Master
Sergeant Mark Michielsen, will
arrive in Highlands County on
Saturday, May 20. Their exact
travel itinerary hasn't yet been
confirmed, though officials in
Tallahassee are working on the
band's behalf to secure a mili-
tary airplane to transport them
to Sebring.
The highlight of the band's
visit will be a full band concert
at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 21. The
concert, staged directly in front
of the entrance to the historic
Kenilworth Lodge, is free to the
public. In 2004, the band played
a diverse array of selections;
ranging all the way from mov-
ing patriotic numbers to movie
themes, and the event's organiz-
ers promise that the set list for
this year will be every bit as
spectacular.
Madge Stewart, co-owner
and director of marketing for
the historic hotel, said, "The
band is very, very excited to be
returning to Sebring. They
promised a very entertaining
time with even a couple of
surprises for everyone who
sees the show. We had approxi-
mately 1,500 attendees at the
last show, and we're hoping that
with the positive word-of-
mouth advertising from those
who saw it we'll have over
2,500 people for the concert on
the 21st."
The portion of Lakeview
Dnre directly in iront of the
Kenil\ orth Lodge will, be
closed to traffic from 1-4:30
p.m. that day to allow for spec-
tators to set up chairs and view-
ing areas. Attendees for the
concert are encouraged to bring
chairs and wear their best red-
white-and-blue clothing to
proudly show their support at
the concert.
"After all of the positive
feedback we received when we
brought them down here two
years ago, inviting them back
for a repeat performance two
years later was .a no-brainer,"
remarked Don Elwell,
Kenilworth Lodge's general
manager. "We read and hear so
many negative things each day;
we don't get too many opportu-
nities as a community to feel
great about our military and our
country. Meeting these soldiers
and hearing them play in a
venue like this helps change
that. If you don't swell with

other special needs during the
band's upcoming visit. Any
organization wishing to support
the band's trip is asked to con-
tact Madge Stewart or Don
Elwell directly at 385-0111.
Stewart said, "The VFW
immediately volunteered to
host a dinner for the band,


which is greatly appreciated.
The band loved being there last
year and mentioned the VFW
specifically when they knew
they were returning again this
time. We'll be sure to publicize

LeConey: Mobile home lot rental complex


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING While owners
of mobile homes renting the
lots where they, live have most
of the same protections of
apartment or house renters, the
laws are far more complicated.
The biggest problem, said
Scott LeConey, attorney with
Swain, Harris, and Sheehan in
Sebring, is that the renters own
the mobile home, but may have
had them on site for so long,
they can't be moved.
Either the homes will fall
apart or new mobile home parks
won't accept them in their
building code, he said.
Several people came to
Tuesday's Law Week seminar
on landlord tenant issues; most
of them tenants. Many of them
wanted answers about mobile
home lot renter concerns.
Under Chapter 723, Florida
Statutes, a landowner only has
to pay the lot renter the
appraised value of the mobile
home, and if it's old, that price
may not pay for getting a lease


on an apartment or moving to a
new mobile home park.
There are provisions in the
law to notice tenants of the
owner's intention to change
land use or zoning, or to close
the mobile home park. Even
with legal protections, LeConey
said landlords still have the
right to evict people when they
no longer wish to rent the prop-
erty.
Now, if someone has a writ-
ten agreement, such as a "life-
time lease," the landowner may
be bound to that lease.
"That's ,still a contract,"
LeConey said.
Still, the landlord can change
the prospectus essentially
the mobile home lot lease as
long as he or she gives notice to
the residents, for such things as
lot rental increases for any rea-
son.
Land prices are one big rea-
son. Mobile home parks that
were once rural are now subur-
ban or urban land. When prop-
erty values go up, taxes go up,
and the rent collected may not


pay those taxes, so the landlord
increases the rent. .

Is that smell in your

home making you sick?

Just because you think it's gone after
a few minutes ... it is still there ... your
air is contaminated. Before cranking
up the air conditioner this summer, are
you going to have your system
cleaned? Clean systems produce clean
air and lower electric bills. For as little
as $14.99 a vent, a free estimate, and a .
better summer is just a call away.

Unlike devices seen on infomercials which promise to clean your air
with high priced, technologically advanced hardware, Autumn Breeze
offers a service that makes sense, to the cleaning lady in all of us.
Contaminants need to be physically removed in order to "disappear"
from your air system and breathing environment. In most cases this
requires intense chemical treatment and extraction of mold, bacteria,
and other odor causing sediments that are causing the contaminated
environment. It is estimated that over 70% of the homes in Central
Florida have air systems producing air that is detrimental to human

Blood supplies
running short
SEBRING All blood
types have fallen critically
low in Highlands County.
Blood supplies must be
replenished immediately to
avert any shortages at local
hospitals. April has already
started out slow and with
summer fast approaching the
fear is that this trend will con-
tinue.
Florida's Blood Centers -
Highlands is asking that any-
one who is eligible to donate
to do so. Collections are down
200 units so far this month.
To donate blood, a person
must be in good health, weigh
a minimum of 110 pounds,
and be 17 years of age or
older. There is no upper age
limit for donors meeting all
other eligibility requirements.
As a benefit to the donor, a
mini health check, which
includes evaluations of blood
pressure, iron level and cho-
lesterol, is performed to help
the donor maintain good,
health. The entire procedure,
from completing a short med-
ical history to drawing blood
and resting afterward with
refreshments, takes approxi-
mately 30 to 45. minutes.
Publix is giving a $10 gift
card to every donor.
For more information about
locations and hours for donat-
ing call 382-4499.

Krishnadas, of Sebring, she
said, "Everyone who meets
Edwin falls in love with him."
She questioned why a hospi-
tal so close would try to send
her son to an out-of-state hospi-
tal for something that could be
done near home, yet bring other
patients from across the world
for the same surgery.
"Mom told me that Jackson


Memorial is going to give us a
referral to another state's hospi-
tal," she said. "Why would they
do that when he's on Medicaid
and 'Children's Medical
Services, which are funded by
J this state. That just makes it
Al AMA more expensive. Here makes
more sense."
Crystal Acevedo praised both
her mother, and her father, Jim
Acevedo, for all they have done


w* to help her.
S -- ..- "They have been great. I
don't know what I'd have done
*- . - without their help," she said.
S_ She doesn't take advantage
.- of their support, but she does
S appreciate it.

Charles Seamans dries his eyes alongside his wife Kathy (left) and daughter Mary Wiltgen'at Friday's
Law Day Luncheon at the Sebring Civic Center while Circuit Judge Peter Estrada (far left) reads from a
plaque commemorating Jani Seamans Branham, who died tragically last July, just three months after
she received the Highlands County Bar Association's Judge Kelly Award for excellence at last year's Law
Day. Since then, the Highlands County Bar Association has named a scholarship in her honor.

Reportedly, she was shot and

County, awaiting trial.
Circuit Judge Peter Estrada,
serving on the Law Day com-
mittee along with Thomas,
attorney Linda Rodriguez-
Torrent, and other local attor-
neys, said having a bigger and
better Law Day each year was
Branham's dream.
"When I saw the (how the)
number of kids and posters and
essays increased," Estrada said,
"she will live .on in Law Day."
Her mother Kathy Seamans,
who was in town with
Branham's father Charles and
other family. members, said
although Branham grew up in
Iowa, her Florida family was
there.
"Jani was a family person,"
her mother said. "She believed
the family is the basic unit of
society. Domestic violence is a
family issue."
She then told how a father

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Diana Acevedo holds her 10-month-old grandson ai Sebring Pediatrics Friday while his pediatrician, Dr.
Praveen Krishnadas, reviews his records during an examination.


"I look at it like this," she
said. "Edwin is my baby and
my responsibility and I tell
them that but they've come
out of pocket a lot and offered
me a lotof relief."
After all the emotional ups
and downs, never knowing
from day to day whether Edwin
would live or die, whether they
would have to run back to
Tampa General (which they had
to do many times), whether he
would get his'name on a donor
waiting list or die trying, the
family has been given hope
once again.
"This afternoon I called
Jackson Memorial again and
spoke with Ms. Ferguson (a
representative at the hospital),"
Diana Acevedo said. "I told her
that I am not satisfied with them
referring me out of state. 'I've
got articles showing you've
done these transplants for peo-
ple out of the country so why
should we have to. go out of
state?' I asked."
Later, while the News-Sun
was awaiting a return call with
an answer as to why the hospi-
tal was denying Edwin and.
what exactly it would take for
them to accept him, Diana
Acevedo received another call.
"Dr. (Tomoaki) Kato, a sur-
geon at the hospital who does
these surgeries, called me and
told me he was going to hold a
meeting and that he didn't think
they should deny Edwin," she
said.
Finally, at 3:40 p.m. Friday
she received the greatest news
of all.
"Mr. Joaquin in financing
called me and said, 'I've got
good news for you. The hospital
is willing to admit him.' We go,
next week for testing. I am so
happy I am crying," Diana
Acevedo said.
She called her daughter to
share the good news, and said
that all of Acevedo's friends
were "screaming in the back-
ground."
Sometimes when this disor-
der is detected before birth dur-
ing a routine sonogram, a moth-

'If God takes him after all the efforts
I've made, then at least my heart and I
will be at peace knowing that I gave
him a chance to live.'
DIANA ACEVEDO, grandmother


er chooses to terminate her
pregnancy early. When asked
what she would have done had
she known about the condition
before his birth, Crystal
Acevedo said, "I would have
had him anyway my faith is
just like that."
She and her gjient., family
and friends, along with local
churches and people all over,
have been praying for Edwin,
and a lot of money has been
raised for his cause.
Diana Acevedo has always
said from the beginning that
prayer comes first and then the
money.


"If God takes him after all
the efforts I've made, then at
least my ,heart and I will be at
peace knowing that I gave himn
a chance to live," she said. "I
also owe a lot of thank yous to
a lot of people who have prayed,
and given money and support."
With newfound hope and b ft-
ed spirits, the family d\ IU no\w
embark on another stage of
their turbulent journey. A lot of
faith, strength, and stamina will
be required; but everyone,
including baby Edwin, have
proven to be committed to this
fight for life and are hoping for
a happy ending a miracle.

Allen Register, who with his
wife Patty owns and operates
Gatorama in Palmdale, pulled
my leg as I got out of my car.
I:had asked what to wear
and been told shorts and good
running shoes.
But nothing had been said
about a shirt, so I'd chosen a
vivid red Hawaiian with white
ind \ellov. frangipani flowers
outlined in black. It was just
what a alligator hunter would
wear, so I thought.
But Register took one look
at me and shuddered. "Get rid
of the red," he said. "Red's not
a good color to wear around
alligators."
"But it hides the blood
well," Patty said, as I blanched
and he rushed off to get me a
replacement T-shirt. It was a
:brighter red than the one I had
'. orn It turns out what alliga-
tors hate is frangipani flowers.
Or, to be precise, what alli-
gai',rs hate is anything differ-
ent. Which is why Register
wanted me to wear what his
staff wear when they're work-
ing at maintaining the alliga-
tors and crocodiles.
It da") ned on me then that I
was going to be working with
animals that make dairy cows
seem smart and adaptable.

Saving more than one endangered species


* This is the first part of a two-
part series.
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

PALMDALE Gatorama is
as much a hold over from
another era as the crocodiles
and alligators to be found
inside.
Created in 1957, at a time
when there were about 80 pri-
vate roadside attractions scat-
tered around Florida, it is now
one of only 13.
It is a laid back and peaceful
place.
The original owner, Cecil
Clemmens had let it run down,
and sold it in 1986 to David
Thielman, who, was retired
from the army.
Slowly he and his son-in-law
and daughter, Allen and Patty
Register, have brought the place
back.
The Registers bought the
attraction themselves earlier
this year, but have been operat-
ing it for almost two decades.
What Gatorama lacks in flash
and sizzle, it more than makes
up with personal attention.
Allen Register relishes educat-
ing the public, and enjoys tak-
ing time to answer questions.
It is the kind of place where
people. are encouraged to get
close to the gators, to the point
of actually holding one (little
ones, with their jaws taped"
shut).
In addition to hundreds, of
alligators and crocodiles -
which get along well -
Gatorama also has Florida pan-
thers, raccoons, macaws, a bob-
cat, ostriches and peacocks
along with an, assortment of
other critters.

BITES
Continued from 13A
with an attitude about anything
out of the ordinary, and I
would be the something differ-
ent. And there wouldn't be a
fence between us.
So right away I was a little
bit nervous.
Things rapidly got worse.
One of the chores we were
going to do, Register told me,
with the same kind of a grin
my editor gets when she's "
signing me up for something
particularly gruesome or physi-
cal, was rob a crocodile's nest.
I'd read that crocodiles and
alligators are very protective
mothers.
I'd read that they can run
faster than horses for distances
up to 30 feet.
Suddenly I was extremely
nervous. And it didn't help that
right around then I noticed
Register was missing the top
knuckle of his left middle fin-
ger.
And yes, a crocodile bit it
off.
It happened on March 23,
2004, when Register was
attempting to secure a 10 foot
crocodile's head. The rope he
had tied around its jaws
slipped just enough for the
angry crocodiles to be able to
snap down on Register's fin-
gers, breaking one and sever-
ing the tip of the other. It hap-
pened so fast there was no
time to react.
Register told the story
straight, then grinned and
added, "We served fingerfoods
for the anniversary this year."
I would have laughed but by
then I was too busy sweating.
That's because Register had
filled a five.gallon container
-with damp sphagnum moss
and it was time to go steal
crocodile eggs.
We went through a gate-and
down to the water where there
was a dirt mound that might be
a nest.
A good sized crocodile,
maybe a little over nine feet
long, stood guard.
Register's son Ben, who
works with his parents,
ad% anced 'with a long section
of PVC pipe. His job .\a s to
tap the crocodile on the nose to
back it off into the water.
The crocodile, however, had
another idea. She grabbed hold
of the pipe. For a brief
moment, man and reptile
played tug-of-war, but that
only lasted a couple of sec-
onds. With a.powerful twist of
her head, the crocodile ripped
the pipe from Ben's hands, and
retreated with her trophy.
She glared from the water.
Ben went for another section
of pipe.
Once he returned and stood
between us and the crocodile,
we started digging to find the
eggs, keeping one eye on the
irate mother.
Now there are several differ-
ences between alligators and
crocodiles. One of them is how
they nest. Alligators create
mounds using plant matter that
incubates the eggs as the plant
matter rots. But crocodiles
simply dig holes and then bury
their eggs. Both typically lay
from 30 to 45. Females will
lay eggs whether or not they
have been fertilized.
Crocodile eggs are about
half again larger than jumbo
chicken eggs, and oblong in
shape. Fertilized eggs have a
broad light band running
around the middle. They are
not leathery or soft like turtle
eggs, but aren't quite as brittle
as chicken eggs either.
The mother crocodile "

remained unhappy with our
efforts, and lunged several
times while we worked. The
first time it happened I thought
about panicking, but Ben
rapped her snout with the pipe,
and she fell back before I made
a fool of myself.
When she wasn't lunging,
the crocodile was hissing. It is
a terrible sound like air
escaping from a tire, only more
ominous it lifted the hair
on the back of my neck.
Register recovered 45 eggs
from the nest and we transport-
ed them to the incubation
room.
The room is hot, set at 90
degrees, and very humid.
Register keeps about a half
inch on water on the floor so
it's like walking into a sauna.
Crocodile eggs hatch in 85
to 90 days, while alligators
only take 65.
Register collects the croco-
dile eggs because eggs are a
delicacy for other animals in
the wild. One nest in the pro-
tected enclosure had.already
been destroyed by raccoons. In
the wild only about 2 percent
of all eggs (actually their con-
tents) survive to adulthood.
Gatorama is home to the
largest breeding colony-of
American crocodiles.

Real estate licensing education goes online


SEBRING -The real estate
.industry has been extremely
active in the past several years,
which has led to more people
wanting to enter the field of real
estate sales.
Florida requires that any per-
son engaging in the real estate
business be licensed with a
licensed and brokerage firm. In
order to obtain a sales associate
license, prospective licensees
must complete a pre-license
education course followed by
two exams. One local real
estate licensing school,
Otterman School of Real


Estate, has recently added
online Internet based learning
to its course offerings.
"It is difficult for some stu-
dents to take time away from
work to complete a day course
or set aside time for our evening
courses," owner Jim Otterman
said, "so we are helping make it
possible for those students to
get their educational needs met
as well."
-Through an affiliation with
RECampus, students can now
enroll in a variety of pre-
license, post licensing and con-
tinuing education courses at

Prospective participants are not required to secure a
teaching position to attend an EPI. Once they become

moves to semi-finals
Sam Lieske, 3, of Sebring, and his sister,
Sydney, 5, help release hundreds of blue and ',
white balloons Thursday night during the '
Heartland Junior Idol event on the Circle in
downtown Sebring. The balloons were spon-
sored by the Devereaux Foundation, which
works hand in hand with the Children's

recognition of Child Abuse and Neglect
Month, which is April. From the teen category
(below right), the finalists include Christopher
Allen (from left), 17, of Sebring, who wrote his
own song, 'Marry Me;' Casey Laughlin, 16, of
Avon Park, who sang 'If the Truth Be
Known;' and Jessica Dellacsa, 14, of Lorida,
who sang 'Can't Fight the Moonlight.' The
semi-final and final competition will be held
on the same night, with the event getting
under way at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 11, on the
Circle. The Heartland Junior Idol is spon-
sored by Alan Jay Automotive Network,

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Cart before

the horse
I wonder if our dream
will come true. We've been
living in our house almost
18 years hoping one day to
enclose our screened porch.
During the hot summer
and cold winter days, we
lose the use of it. The rest
of the year it,s one of our
favorite rooms as it refresh-
ingly .brings the outside in.
By enclosing it with
large, screened windows,
we would create a year-
round gathering place.
Also, by utilizing some of
the furniture from a den, it
would free up another room
for a guest room.
Discussing these
thoughts in the car one day,
I spotted an attractive
daybed at a garage sale.
Immediately, I thought of
the guest room we'd just
been talking about.
I doubled back, meas-
ured the daybed and, at
home, the space I thought it
could occupy until our
plans materialized. Then I
brought a check to the
owner to hold it.
At home, I excitedly
measured again just to
be sure. Then I measured
again. Oh, oh. I hadn't been
accurate. I'd made a big
mistake.
Not only had I purchased
something before the time
was right, but it would
dominate and severely
overcrowd a small living
space we used a lot. And
there was no guarantee
we'd see the fulfillment of
our dream room.
Eating humble pio, I
called the owner of the -
daybed who graciously
allowed me to come b) and
pick up my check.
The saying, "Don't put
the cart before the horse,"
kept coming to me all day.
And if not for the kind
understanding of the owner,
I may have had that "cart"
in front of a phantom
"horse."
I got to thinking about
other close calls like that.
And then I asked God to
forgive me for going ahead
of,him.
Yes. even in little deci-
sions like this one, God is
interested. When I brought-
him into the picture, I
remembered how he has
ah\ a\ s met my needs -
right on time.
I could see myself in
more stressful situations in
which God intervened at
just the right moment. Or
situations when he met
needs that I couldn't imag-
ine being met.
'Bible verses such as
those that promise that God
will supply all my needs
came to mind. I thought
about the verses that
remind me not to be anx-
ious about anything, but by
prayer and thanksgiving,
make my requests known
to God.
"Surely the arm of the
Lord i. not too short to
save, nor his ear too dull to
hear." (Isaiah 59:1, NIV)
Putting the cart before
the horse will get me into
Trouble. But, resting in the
Lord and trusting in his
pro\ vision is always benefi-
cial. Selah.

Jokaroha's tour was a rooftop experience. Members of the band (from left) Joseph Jimenez; Katie Havery, Jordan Terrell, AlbertoGarcia, Rodney Havery and Harry Havery

Whirlwind tour for teen praise band


Jokaroha performs in

Washington, D.C.
By JAN MEROP
v ,, .. . ... I ., t,.. . ...
SE BRING Neither the biting March wind nor
fingers frozen from the cold could stop this deter-
mined band of young people from playing and singing
in the heart of this nation's Capitol. Though the
weather played tricks on them, they were not deterred.
Praises to God reverberated across the lawns and
around the bends to people waiting to tour the
Washington Monument.
Jokaroha, guided and led by Bible Fellowship
Church's Music Director Harry Havery is no stranger
to performing. The members of the band, Jordan
Trrrell. 16, keyboard/vocalist; Katie Havery, 16, bass;
Rodney Havery, 14, drums; and Alberto Garcia; 18,
gtiitart\ vocalist (and guitarist Joseph Jimenez, 18, who
was unable to accompany the band on this tour) have
played ait hlighlands H.immock State Park'min Sebrin,-..
See You at the Pole in Highlands Countn and mann
special events. They have three CDs to their credit
the latest comprised of original songs and covers
designed with this tour and young listeners in mind.
In Washington, D.C. iihe pla' ed t\\ o sets in about
three hours taking a short break in the sun as the
stage had been mosti, in the shade the whole time.
The temperatures had reportedly reached the low 50s;
but, with-the wind chill, the low 40s nipped bare fin-
ger tips. Not something these Floridians were accus-
tomed to handling. .
"The wind ho'.', led, music stands blew over and we
jctuall' had to chain the cymbals down. At first it was
painful playing with frozen fingers, Then we were
numb and playing by memory. Our fingers moved
slowly," Harry Havery said.
Passers by in Washington, D.C. thanked them for
their music and gladly received Jokaroha's newest CD
from Harrison Ha.very, 10, the youngest traveler
accompanying the band.
"Harrison was our promo mah," Harry Havery said.
"He gave away posters,, flyers and CDs to anyone who
would take one."
David Collins, 18, of Sebring, also accompanied the
group and filmed the complete tour. He helped set-up,,
tear-down and run the equipment at each site.

The right time
The idea of a tour was the brain child of Havery's
wife Dawn.,She had traveled as a teen with Living
End, a youth music group from her church in Holland,
Mich. She never forgot the experience and longed for.
the band to know the thrill of such a tour.
Then about a year ago, the Havery family traveled

guitar at Messiah Lutheran Church in Pennsylvania.

to Washington, D.C..
'.'When I saw the Sylvan Theater, all Dawn's
. dreams became my own. This ".'s the time Retiirni ri.
to Schrin_. I began the tedious orl. ol pl. p ning ainl
setting up a tour for the 2006 spring break," Havery
said.
Part of that monumental task included waiting and
filling out paper work for permission to perform in
Washington, D.C.'s Sylvan Theater.
On Sunday, March 19, they piled into the van
pulling a trailer of equipment and left Sebring. Their
first stop was in, South Carolina at College of
Ch.irlcston
Unfortunately, they set up, sang two songs and got
rained out. Tuesday, they moved on to'North Carolina
State University. Wednesday was the highlight in
. Washington, D.C. By Thursday, they were warmly
welcomed at Messiah Lutheran Church, Newtown
Square, Pa. This church had just begun introducing
modern praise music and other instruments. So
Jokaroha blessed and inspired them.

Shaping influences
As fast as it had begun, it was over and thleywere
on the road home. But, not without some life lessons
and experiences that have shaped them: Even some'
simple fun things like snow.
For some, this was their first experience .playing in
and handling snow. The documentary video of their
exploits prove they had a blast.
But the group also bonded in a way that has given
them a new appreciation for Christian friendships.
Some also came home with an awareness of their own
personal growth.
Jordan Terrell found the tour to be especially help-
ful in evaluating his future.
"This is what I plan to do professionally and it gave


me a taste of what it would be like. I loved it."
Alberto Garcia discovered that being stretched is a
good thin .
"For a long time, Harry has been encouraging me to
sing, believing iri e. Every tine he gives me an
opportunity. I take it and am a little more confident.
On the towi. he'd look at me and expect me to sing the
iejd on the spot. 'Because he has believed in mne, it's
getting easier and I enjoy it," Garcia said.
Rodney Havery has been a drummer for about four
years.
"This tour gave me a taste of what it's like to play
outside the local area. It was great," he said.
Bass player, Katie Havery, is the only female band
member.
"I enjoyed getting to know how it might feel when
a professional band travels. It was fun," she said.
David Collins hadn't been sure of the direction he
would take as he looked toward college.
"But, a couple of years ago, Harry asked if I'd like
to help with the sound equipment at Bible Fellowship
Church and I really liked it. The tour exposed me to
the video aspect of [his technology. This has been
really) cool bec aute it has shown me that I'd like' to
pursue electronic media as my major," Collins said.
One experience for Havery turned into a distinct
life's lesson. While planning the itinerary, he remem-
bers how he felt impressed not to schedule the first
stop the one that was rained out. But, he had so
wanted to stop there that he ignored the impression.
Once there, the weather man assured them of a
decent day in spite of rain on the horizon. However,
after faking all the time to set up, the rain came in
earnest. They played a couple of songs; but, had to
stop.
"We prayed and wondered what to do. When the
rain let up, we decided to give it another go: No soon-
er did we decide to try again, the heavens opened and
we knew we were done for," Harry Havery said.
"Now I know that for whatever reason, God did not
want us to sing there. He had given me an impression,
which I ignored. Then he sent the rain. I'll listen and
obey next timee"
But, one of the most powerful perceptions came
over Harry Havery in Washington, D.C.
[ There were certain songs that we've done for
years that were more meaningful there at the
Washington Monument.
"For example, 'Blessed Be Your Name,' by Beth
and Matt Redman, has these words as part of the
lyrics: 'Blessed be your name in a land that is plenti-
ful where your streams of abundance flow, blessed be
your name.' It almost made me melancholy to sing
those words at the Washington Monument knowing
how blessed we are and yet how much more we can
do," Harry Havery said.
See JOKAROHA, page 7C


The band met the biting weather head on and played their hearts out in Washington, D.C.'s Sylvan Theater.

Manage yard pests responsibly


* This is another in a.series of articles
written about the new area urban con-
servation program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods.

Populations here in South Central
Florida will probably double in the
next twenty years. This means, the
number, of homes also will double
bringing more yards to care for and
more pest management. Due to the
concerns about health, the environ-
ment, and pesticide resistance,, pest
,control practices once taken for grant-
ed are now under- scrutiny. Regular
preventive insecticide spraying is still
common for some pests but may be
unnecessary. Healthy plants can usual-

ly defend against or tolerate pest attacks, while
beneficial insects, birds and other natural controls
often suppress uridesirable isects ., ,,'
Here are rnome ways to avoid pest problems in
your yard. Choose insect and disease resistant'
plants that can tolerate conditions in your yard;
native plants are best. Once plants are estab-
lished, go easy on fertilizer and water. Too much
can cause excessive, growth making plants vul-
nerable to some insects and diseases.
,Mowing grass too short and severely pruning,
trees and shrubs weakens them, inviting pests.
Leave three to four inches when mowing your
lawn and prune 'shrubs selectively.
'Encourage beneficial insect by minimizing the
use of broad spectrum pesticides and spot spray-
ing the affected area only and not the, whole
yard'.
Try to identify pest problems before they get
out of hand by walking through your yard twice
or more a week and look at plants. Common plant
pests in Florida include aphids, mealybug's, scale,
whiteflies, thrips, mites and caterpillars. If you
see-curled, rolled or deformed leaves, mold on
leaves or stems, you are likely to find a pest lurk-
ing someWhere. Sooty mold on leaves is a telltale


clue to an infestation by what are
known as piercing-sucking insects
such as aphids. These insects secrete a
sugary substance called. honeydew, on
which the black-colored ,sooty mold
fungus feeds and grows. The sooty
mold does not injure a plant directly,
but if excessive can block sunlight
from leaves, reducing photosynthesis.
Tolerate some insect damage. and
leaf disease as no one can maintain a
pest and disease free yard. Should you
need to treat a badly infested plant first
try to simply remove 'the infested plant
part; or if they are large, slow moving
caterpillars'try picking them off by hand.
Should you need to use a chemical pes-
ticide use one that is selective to your


problem or better yet use insecticidal soaps or

What would be your suggestion as a
gift for a young teenage boy? Maybe
you're thinking a trip to Disney World,
his own computer, a BMX bike ....
OK, let's talk realistically. Matter of
fact, a most welcome gift for our new
teen was a set of colored pencils.
Many children and teens spend time .-
doodling and making fancy designs on .lI
paper, but some really enjoy much LIBRAR
more involved pencil-to-paper sketch-
ing. If you have a child or grandchild Car
who doodles, bring them on in to dis- Hess
cover a world of fun and ideas on our -
shelves dedicated to drawing (look for
741-743 on the spine labels).
The books on this area of art are as plentiful in
the juvenile area-as they are in the adult section
(and can be found under the same call numbers of
741-743). The juvenile afeas have several exten-
sive art series. Use the on-line public access cat-
alog (OPAC) to search for the series "Draw 50,"
"Ed Emberley's Big," How to Draw" or the "I
Can Draw" books. Tfere are books to help you
learn hiow to sketch sports figures, knights,
ghosts, spacecraft, cats, princesses, Pokemon,
Peanuts; monsters, even your own story.,
Other titles to take home include: "Drawing
With Your Fingerprints," "Drawing With
Objects," "Action Art," "Cartoon Magic," "Dare
to Draw in 3-D," "Dragon Art" and "Crazy About
Colored Pencils."
Our teen isn't the only one who spends a lot of
time studying scenes, people and objects. Sebring
Library has,been displaying the nature photogra-
phy of 14-year-old C.J. Guth III, all of April. This
talented teen already has displayed an eye for
design and an interest in the world around him.
Thank you to the Guths, for sharing his talent.
Perhaps you used to draw but found other
more pressing studies and work took its place.
Here's a title to get your confidence up, again -
"Drawing With Children: A Creative Method for


Y
rol
se
.m


Adult Beginners, Too."
-. It isn't too late, everyone has pencils
and. paper, so come on in and take
home the start of an engrossing and sat-
isfying hobby. Cheek out "The Act of
Drawing; Approaches to Drawing,"
"Freehand Sketching," "The Art
Course," "Drawing," "The Art of
o?'. Responsive Drawing," "All About
LINES Techniques in Drawing," "Countryside
Sketching," "Bridgman's Complete
lyn Guide to Drawing From Life," "Pen
link and Ink Book" or "Anatomy and
-- Drawing."
If you think that doodling is a waste
of time, then you need to peruse our titles:


"Drawing Scenery for 'Theater, Film and
Television," "Fashion Design Drawing Course,"
"Architectural Graphics," "Chalk in Hand: The
Draw and Tell Book" or "Illustrating Children's
Books."
SIt is our sincere hope that you have taken
advantage of our free computer courses offered
year-round at every Heartland Library
Cooperative library. Three newer courses offered
at Sebring include e-mail, Microsoft Word. and
Internet. Avon Park Library will continue to offer
their classes on Wednesdays, Lake Placid Library
on Tuesday, and Sebring on Fridays, and
Tuesday afternoons. Once you get.comfortable
with Microsoft Word, then you may want to
check out our title "Word Processing: Drawing
With Word."

Biologist find bluespotted sunfish hard to count


Recently there was some
interest among some folks I
know to learn more about the:
different fish species that can be
found in lakes (besides bass that
is). The following article was
published in a recent
Lakewatch newsletter and
describes a little known sunfish,
the bluespotted sunfish, and the
difficulties biologists have esti-
mating population sizes.
Bluespotted sunfish are
extremely small fish with adult
sizes ranging from two to three
inches in length. They are a
dusky green olive above with
blue or silver spots in irregular
rows along the sides and fins.
There is a dark spot on the ear
flap not quite as large as the eye
pupil. Bars found on the sides
of juvenile fish are indistinct in
the adult: The body is deeply
compressed and the caudal fin
is rounded which separates this
sunfish from most other com-


mon Florida sunfish.
Bluespotted sunfish are
found in coastal lowlands from
southern New York to South
Florida. They are usually found
in dark or stained waters of
sluggish coastal streams,
swamps and lakes. They fre-
quent thick vegetation or sub-
merged branches and roots. The
major food items for the
bluespotted sunfish includes
small crustaceans, aquatic
insects, plants, worms, and mol-
lusks.
In a 1972 article from
American Currents (Issue 1,
Fall 1972), Robert T. Rosen
described the mating behavior
of the bluespotted sunfish. The
male builds the nest in thick
vegetation or filamentous algae.
The male then courts the female
into the nest to spawn. They
two fish touch and wave in a
dance over the nest. By the next
day the male pushes the female


out of the nest. The
eggs will hatch in
approximately 60
hours. Spawning in
the wild usually
occurs when the
water temperature
reaches 73 degrees F.
Int a study of 60
Florida lakes the
bluespotted sunfish NEWS
was found in 25 of
the 60 lakes sampled.
These 25 lakes WATI
included a wide vari-
ety of lakes in Florida Jennifi
ranging in size from 4 -
hectares to 5,580
hectares and in water clarity
form 0.4 meters to 5.3 meters.
These lakes tended to be lakes
with abundant aquatic vegeta-
tion.
. When biologists sample the
bluespotted sunfish in a system
there are several peculiarities
that this species presents. The


IS





mm


first problem has to
do with correctly
estimating the popu-
lation numbers of the
1-tE bluespotted sunfish
in a system. The
bluespotted sunfish,
when present, are
often too numerous
to estimate the true
FROM population size. So
HIE population estimates
for this species are
RSHED conservative at best.
Another problem
r Abbey when sampling this
-- species is in obtain-
ing accurate weights.
Accurate weights cannot be
obtained with normal fisheries
scales because normal fisheries
scales usually weigh only to the
nearest gram. The bluespotted
sunfish usually weighs less than
one gram. In the. study men-
tioned earlier, the maximum
weight obtained fro the


-g


Courtesy photo
Bluespotted sunfish are found in coastal low lands from southern
New York to South Florida.


bluespotted sunfish from the 25
lakes containing the bluespotted
sunfish was 2.0 grams.
Bluespotted sunfish are not
considered a sport fish and have
no comniercial \ af' other' tFi'ai
. forage fish for some top preda-
tors like 'the largemouth bass.
'The scientific name of the,
bluespotted sunfish describes
this species well. The genus is
enneacanthus, which means'
nine-spined, 'and the specific
epithet is glorious, which


means handsome. Therefore,
bluespotted sunfish make an
excellent aquarium fish because
-of their coloring. They are'
docile in nature and they get
along \ ell 'nth dther fish.

Tipping servers necessary; but sharing money not


* News-Sun correspondent
Pauline Au Yang provides eti-
uette tips for readers on the
ast Sunday of each month in
the Lifestyle section.

Question:
* I was asked how I felt about
waitresses/waiters having to
share their tips with other wait-
resses and waiters. Instead of
pocketing their individual tips
given to them for excellent
service?
Answer:
In many restaurants waiters
and waitresses earn $2.75 to,


$3.75 ig hour. They rely heavi-
ly o:ntips -15 percent or more.
However, I don't agree with the
tips' being shared. Why? The
person who gives, excellent
service, deserved the benefits in
gratuity. What if the others are
selfish, self-centered and have
poor customer service skills?
Do they deserve to benefit from
the rewards of excellent servic-
es given by their colleagues?
No! Why? Because they are
being rewarded' for being
unprofessional. Which means
that a waiter or waitress can go
to work daily with a nasty atti-


Serving'

tude ... didn't earn the gratuity,
but is enjoying the labor of love
that others have given.
Question:
My longtime massage thera-


pist went on vacation, so anoth-
er massage therapist substitut-
ed. I enjoyed the massage ses-
sion immensely and have decid-
ed to switch therapist. How do I


end the relationship? They both
work together.
Answer:
Breaking up is never easy.
Like all relationships, feelings
will be hurt. Be honest and
polite with your soon to be ex-
therapist. (Divorce is painful.)
Technically, this is what you are
doing. Tell this person you
enjoyed the sessions. However,
you were introduced to new
techniques by the other thera-
pist, and you find these methods
helpful. Let this person know
that you'll refer clients.
Awkward?, Yes. But there is no


need to beat around the bush.
Hopefully, grudges will not be
harbored. Don't forget to say
thanks for the past services.

JOKAROHA"
Continued'from 1C
A dream with a future
In her supportive role, Dawn
Havery encouraged the traveling
band. She helped with the driving and'
filming; -and, became the ear for the
band that couldn't interact with the


tourists. But, equally important, she
saw her dream come true.
"To watchthe kids play was a
dream fulfilled. I was so proud of
them, especially at the Washington
Monument. That was my proudest
moment," she said.
She was especially moved just to
know they could play Christian music
at the Sylvan Theater. And she wasn't


alone.
"Tourists came up to me and said,
'We couldn't believe we were hearing
this Christian music. We just had to
track this down.' Such comments
helped me see how the band was
encouraging., Christians in the area,"
Dawn said.
Others wanted to know where they
came from; how they were able to


manage playing at the Sylvan Theater.
They commented what a good band
they were and Dawn knew'they were
having an outreach.
She and Harry had talked about
doing a tour for years.
"I didn't think we'd ever do it. It
was along time happening, but it was
worth the wait," she said.
With the tour being such a positive


experience, this fulfilled dream now
has a future. They plan to do it again
next year changing only two things:
the length of time and time of year -
traveling for two weeks in the sum-
mer of 2007.
Would they. return to Washington,
D.C.? You bet. And mix some new
stops with the old. Even a state park
tour is a possibility.

EDITORIALS/OPI N IONS


Gas wars put the blame of high prices on someone else


ocrvttg itmutu


S


All right, I have
SHINGTON heard all kinds of LAURA"
Editor suggestions on
what to do about Laurc
SCOTT DRESSEL the gas prices.
Sports Editor People are getting
upset as the price
of fuel gets higher and higher,
with no end in sight. ,
I've heard people suggest we
boycott certain providers.
Others have suggested we cut
our consumption by 3 percent.

_to buy drinks or other items at
places that sell gas, figuring
that doing so would show the
sellers our displeasure.
Frankly, I don't believe any
of these tactics will work. Call
me a pessimist, but I think gas
prices are going to go up no
- matter what we do, and we
might as well find ways to
- -* laugh about it, because if we
.. ._ . don't we'll have a lousy sum-
.-. mer."
One reason I have this atti-
tude is that I have been unable
'to discover who sets the gas


LOOK prices. No one
LOOK seems to be willing
to admit they are
Ware the person or per-
sons who say that
gas will be for X
amount a gallon.
Instead, everyone says the
problem lies with someone else.
It's the fault of OPEC. No,
it's those greedy oil companies.
No, it's the government with
their fuel taxes. No, it's George
Bush: (Granted, there are peo-
ple blaming George Bush for
the weather these days, but
that's another column.)
I have given some thought to
how the gas prices are set.
Given no one is taking credit,
I'm wondering if there is some
-kind of Gas Price Fairy that
goes from station to station and
by waving its magic wand it
sets the prices. I am not sure
what it looks like maybe like
that Wal-Mart smiley face, only
with jagged teeth. And green.
Another problem of the
whole gas situation is the small


fact that almost no one I know
of is planning to quit driving in
the foreseeable future. Sure, we
might try to cut back on our
driving here and there, but I for
one don't.plan to turning my van
any time soon. If you check out
the traffic out there, no one else
is in a hurry to trade in their
wheels either.
It is possible that some of
you are planning to stay home
more because of the gas prices.
If so, you might want to be
careful not to drive the people
who live with you too crazy. I
cite the true story of Joseph
Langenderfer and his 22-year-
old son Tim.
According to the news story I
read, Joseph was getting upset
at his son because instead of
doing the laundry, Tim was on
the computer playing games.
This did not sit well with
Langenderfer Senior, who
reacted in a somewhat bizarre
fashion: He produced a gun.
What happened after that is
disputed. Tim says his dad shot

'What is one man's amusement,

teaches another's doctrine.'
STANLEY F. REED, former U.S. Supreme Court justice,
1948


Vision is also

prevention
Editor:
The following is a letter I
sent to Chairman Bullard as it
relates to the Chapter 12 of the
Code of Ordinances with land
development regulations. The
issues noted below have been
discussed for at least the 10
years I have lived in Highlands
County:
The Vision Thing and
Chapter 12
The Honorable Bob Bullard,
Chairman of Highlands County
Board of Commissioners
I thought it might be better to
send you a letter with the ques-
tions I have concerning the new
Chapter 12 the board approved
Tuesday morning. These con-
cerns revolve around the vision
of a, future Highlands: County ..
for current residents, their
property and new residents.
I have been out of the loop
.for more than two months and
missed much of what,occurred
in that time, but I did attend the
last vision workshop in Avon
Park. As you know I ask obvi-
ous questions and hope to
receive obvious answers. Good
morning, I am Gabriel Read of
Avon Park Lakes.
1. Using County Road 635 as
a talking point, I would like to
know' if ordinances, regula-
tions, etc., are in place to
require and insure that the arte-
rial roads will actually be con-
structed in current and future
developments. We know that
property owners are supposed
to dedicate their highway for
infrastructure (roads, water and
sewer lines, etc.), but are the
laws and regulations in con-
crete forms to insure same in
Chapter 12? Will the new
impact fee formula be a part of
Chapter 12 and include the cost
of the demand for new infra-
structure developers create?
2. In your five-year compre-
hensive plan, are the arterial
roads mapped out before site
-plans are made, etc.? Will they
become an.automatic part of
any development according to
Chapter 12? The crying need
for arterial roads north and
south through Highlands
County is painfully evident as
County Road 635 illustrates. It

appears that moLt net de\ elop:
ment is ei, i'l U.S. 27., .
3. About five years ago, the
county attorney proposed a
frontage road parallel to U.S. 27
from Sebring to Lake Placid. It
got nowhere. What is the
chance on that proposal being
resurrected?
4. In reference to building in
wetlands and flood plains, are
there concrete regulations
restricting development in
Chapter 12? According to cur-
rent regulations, a property
owner must build at a specific
height above the water line.
SThis results in more recent
homes and businesses built
higher than structures built 25-
50 years. This can cause flood-
ing of those older structures,
which had no flooding prob-
lems before. What measures are
in place in Chapter 12 to pre-
clude those older structures
from being flooded during
heavy rains or hurricanes as a,
result of the new development?
Has the "corrected" Venus solu-
tion been incorporated into
Chapter 12?
I had suggested years ago
that real estate companies be
given a topographical map des-
ignating that certain areas of
Highlands' County are not
developable, that the county
and state would not'be liable for
any construction there, that all
prospective buyers ,be made
aware of said restrictions. That
has not happened. Has the,


county ever refused requests for
building in such areas ..'. like,
natural swamps? In Venus, for
instance?
Dade and Broward counties,
Pasco, Hillsborough and
Manatee counties in Florida
have annual flooding condi-
tions during the rainy season.
The same has occurred across
the country for nearly 20 years
because developers have been
able to buy low-lying lands
cheaply, fill in the land and
build homes and businesses.
without run-off procedures.
They made their profits and left
the new owners with the conse-
quences. Some even advised
the new, owners to buy flood
insurance so -that the govern-
ment (all taxpayers) would foot
the bill, over and over and over
again for reconstruction. In fact,
there was no place for the water
to go because those sites were
wetlands and flood plains.
Mitigation has been ineffec-
tive at best and a fraud at worst.
What concrete precautions are
in place in Chapter 12 to pre-
clude future flooding in older
developments in Highlands
County through such develop-
ments near or in wetland and
flood plains? Are such meas-
ures incorporated in Chapter 12
to preclude flooding of older
homes and businesses and run-
off into our lakes? Has the mit-
igation policy been analyzed
and acted upon?
In my neighborhood, the site


for a new home is over a foot
higher than the house nextdoor
built only two years ago. We are
at one of higher elevations, so
flooding is not a problem, but
there are areas in the county.
where flooding is. What is the
regulation for single home.con-
struction as opposed to subdivi-
sion construction for run-off?
For instance, run-off into lakes.
is prohibited, No?
5. There was a reference to a
tree ordinance at the vision
meeting. As you know, billions
of dollars were lost due to trees
falling on power lines and
buildings in 2004 and 2005. A
tree ordinance was proposed to
restrict the type of trees and dis-
tance from those power lines.
The objection raised was that
private property, rights would
be violated. The fact that. unre-
stricted growth of trees and lack
of maintenance of same result-
ed in billions of dollars of dam-
age to property as a conse-
quence of those "rights" ,seem
to have been dismissed. Are any
regulations included in Chapter
12, to at least reduce such
future destruction, other than
putting power lines, etc., under-
ground?
Mr. Chairman, the name of
the vision thing is also about
prevention of future harm and
destruction. I would appreciate
receiving the information
requested.

Reading and history are what make me tick


What makes me tick? Well,
that's hard to say. I like people
mostly, unless they're pushy and
if they are, I steer far away and
avoid them, like a plague. of
locusts.
Would you believe that my not
seeing people every day like I
used to, is the one and only thing
I miss since retirement? It is true
... sure enough. But I must reveal Lo
something of which I am very TI
proud. But before I get to that Nou
however, I should start at the -
Lou M
source.
What is it they say about start-
ing at the beginning? I've got to
go back a few years ... well, maybe a heck
lot more than a few years, like when I was
going to Public School 157 in Brooklyn.
One of the first things taught us there was
about the three "R's." Reading, writing and
arithmetic ... although I could never figure
out how writing and arithmetic started with


an "M." Arithmetic was a subject
that I was fair in ... not that I
liked it however, but I tolerated


El
ri7


Writing during the breast of
my lifetime was never my cup of
I tea. My interest would totally be
lost after a few lines of scrib-
bling. It wasn't until 1 slowed
down, mellowed sq to speak, that
I'S I1 started putting my thoughts
down on paper.
BOOK Reading. Now that's' some-
thing else altogether. I had a
ngpacci thing about reading stories about
the American west and the
American Indian and still do.
The history of our country also engulfs me.
I have read all of Louis L'Amour's 110
novels of the West and at one time had 70
of those in my collection among others,
including the writings of Zane Grey. Some
of those hard bounds are so old that I prefer
to handle them with care. I must say that I


have read those Zane Grey novels twice
over and am looking forward to reading.
them again.
My pet fascination is the Civil War. Not
because of the factions, mind you..I dbn't
care about that forasmuch it's part of our
history.
I'm real proud, as a son of a paternal
immigrant, to be married to someone who
has ancestral American historical heritage.
When we were in Maryland during the
summer of 1992, Dottie and I had the
unpleasant task of emptying her aunt's
house, since she was physically unable to
take care of herself anymore and we
brought her to Florida.
While doing that chore, we came across
some important historical family docu-
ments concerning someone., on Dottie's
paternal side of the family her great-
great-grandfather by marriage whose name
was William H. Gossler. On March 7, 1878,

at him. Dad alleges that the gun
went off accidentally. Inten-
tional or not, the -bullet struck
the wall a few feet from where
Tim sat. Tim, all thoughts of
computer games probably driv-
en from his mind, called 911.
The police came to the house,
arrested Joseph arid charged
him with attempted murder. No
word on if the computer was
hurt.
So if you are going to stay
home a lot while gas prices
soar, you might want to make
an effort not to irritate each
other. If you do start to find
yourself irritated by someone in
the house, you might want ,to
consider getting in your car and
driving somewhere for a bit. I
am willing to bet that however
expensive gas is at the moment,
it is cheaper than bail.

News-Sun, Sunday, April 30, 2006


HISTORY
Continued from 2D
he married Catherine Brown ...
Dottie's great-great-grandmoth-
er.
Having enlisted in Company
A, 107th Regiment of the New
York Volunteer Infantry, he
served three years as a Yankee
soldier.
He was discharged on June 5.
1865, and was 23 years old at
the time. His commander was
General S.K. Zook. On March
7, 1878, the pension that he had
been receiving for a gunshot
wound during the war was
increased to $4 a month.
There is more American his-
tory on Dottie's maternal side
of the family. Her mother was
related to General John Joseph
Pershing of World War 1. That
alone is something in itself. She
was a Wooten. I have found that
there are at least five variations
of that name in the family.
On Wednesday, Jan. 11,,
1995, my third article in the
series of that story was pub-
lished in the paper. That same
morning, I received a telephone


call from a lady who had just
moved to this town of Sebring.
She asked me all kinds of ques-
tions, wanting to know things
like my wife's first name; her
mother's first name and the
family background, etc. To
make a long story short, the
lady turned out to be somewhat
of a "kissing" cousin to Dottie.
I met the lady at a writer's
group the next day and she
enlightened me on a lot of
things about the Wooten family.
For instance:
Dottie's great-great-grandfa-
ther on her maternal side of the
family also served in the Civil
War. He was a Confederate sol-
dier who was captured during
the Battle of Gettysburg and
thrown into prison in Baltimore
for the duration of the war.
He had been badly treated,
poorly -clothed and fed. When
the war was finally over, his
captors opened the prison doors
and said, "You're free to go."
That's it!" He had to, get home
. the best way he could and with-
out food or funds. His home
was in North Carolina.
We did hear atone time that
the Wooten family tree was
traced back to Colonial times


and I mentioned this;to the lady
when we met at the Writer's
Group. By the way, her name is
Willodean Wooten Vance. She's
written under the name of
Willow Vance and has had a
few books published. The infor-
mation she furnished me is as
follows:
Dr. John Wooten was indeed
a surgeon on -the good ship
Mayflower when it brought the
Pilgrims to America and when
the people at Jamestown were
dying like flies, he was at his
wits end, but knowing 'how to
cope with this unknown mala-
dy, so he returned to England
for help. What happened after
that is anybody's guess.
So now you have it. In all
parts of this country, people are
still fighting the Civil War, both
verbally and nmientally.
This family is neither sympa-
thetic with the north or the
south. The war has long since
.been over. All we know is histo-
ry and now you know what
makes me tick.

The scripture states, "A child.
shall lead them." When 8-year-
old Jerrianne Carlton heard
about what seemed to be the
"fate" of death destined by doc-
tors for baby Edwin Diaz, diag-
nosed with megacystis hypo-
peristalsis microcolon, she
acted on "faith" and donated
her only dollar. She had no idea
that weeks later more than
$7,000 would be raised.
Asked about her generosity,
by the News-Sun, Jerrianne
said, "There are two reasons ...
1. The baby deserves to live. 2,
If this baby does not live, then
he will not experience the love
of God, and he will not realize
that Christ loves .him and died
for the sins of the world."
At a',three-day fund-raising
"Crusade for Life," church
services were held at Vision
Christian Community Church,
in Avon Park, April 19-20.
Delivering the. message on
Wednesday night, with scrip-
ture from Philippians 1:6,
Senior Pastor of Union
Congregational Church Bill
Breylinger said, "Because hurt-
ing and lost people matter to
God, we, must.make them the
priority of our mission to bring
them in, build them up and send
them out to be disciples." He

He quoted a scripture passage
that states, "Faith without

scripture passage came from

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
April 29, 2001: Despite
stranding :11 runners on
base, Avon Park plated
three more than Frostproof
to capture the district title
3-0. Lefty Keith Haywood
had, a complete-game,
nine-strikeout performance
and didn't give up a hit
until the fourth inning.
10 Years Ago
April 28,1996: Twenty-
four hours after securing
the program's first post-
season berth, Sebring's
softball team enhanced
their prospects by upend-
ing top-seeded Sarasota
Booker in the district
championship game. The
Blue Streaks scored their
runs in the first three
innings, then rode the
dominating right arm of
pitcher Stacey Tolar for the
win. Deanna Scott tripled
in the top of the second
inning with the bases
loaded and Sebring went
on to win 6-1.

a season-long mantra. In fact,
the very night before their his-
toric 4-2 victory over McKeel
Academy in Thursday's
District 10-3A championship
game, the Green Dragon's
weren't even 100 percent cer-
tain they were approaching
uncharted territory.
"I've asked everyone at fhe
school," said coach Dan
Coomes after Tuesday night's
win over Frostproof put the
Dragons in the final. "No one's
been able to tell me if we've
won the district before. There's

A little digging by

MARCUS WILKINS/News-Sun
Brent Bierman rounds third and gets a handshake from coach Dan
Coomes after hitting a three-run homer for Lake Placid Thursday
night.


DRAGONS
,Continued from 1E
fell \\ i th a thud in the final
round of that tournament to
-Sebring.
Comes has consistently
obserm ed that the key to wins
at this' level is most often limit-
'ing mistakes as opposed to
,offensive heroics.
0 "You don't usually win
"games at the highschool level.
You lose them. If you don't
:beat yourself, you'll be suc-
-cessful. These teams beat
'themselves," said Coomes in
'regards to Frostproof and
'.McKeel.
That being said, clutch
homers from power hitters
Brent-Bierman' and SFCC
signee Steve Levine played an
-undeniable role in the District
10-3A title.
If there is a word that suc-
cinctly describes this year's
Dragons, it's resilience.
SBouncing back from crippling
losses was a theme throughout
the season, and it was always
Simply a matter of time before
memories of those losses were
replaced by dramatic high-
.lights.
3 The final inning of Thursday
'night's championship encapsu-


lated the year for the Green
Dragons. Lake Placid took the
field with confidence, led by
Levine and an unwavering
team resol' e. After enduring
McKeel's offensive onslaught
and teetenng on the edge of
defeat, the last out \\as record-
ed, and the senior pitcher col-
lapsed in a heap of relief and
revelry.',
Despite what the humble
head coach will tell you, Lake
Placid won the district title.
