Sex-offender


tracking bill


may tighten


local laws

Highlands tighter

than Florida rules
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Americans may soon have much
tougher laws on sexual offenders.
Late Thursday night, the U.S. Senate unani-
mously passed the Sex Offender Registration and
Notification Act. It included a provision by
Senator Bill Nelson of Florida to provide federal
grants to states and local governments that start
their own programs to track and monitor sexual
offenders.
Nelson's provision was named after Jessica
Lunsford, of Homosassa, and Sarah Lunde, of
Ruskin, two Florida girls who were murdered last
year by sex offenders who had been released
from prison.
Since the House of Representatives has passed
a similar measure, sex-offender legislation
should be headed soon to President George Bush
for his signature.
Specifically, Nelson's provision will require
the U.S. Attorney General to oversee $30 million
in grants over three years to support local pro-
grams that get tougher on sexual offenders and
predators.

SEBRING Despite the total loss, four people escaped with-
out injury when a fire gutted their a mobile home Friday morning.

SEBRING A flyer is cir-
culating among educators in
Highlands County.
It says: "Out of 100 high
school freshmen, 67 will gradu-
ate from high school. Thirty-
eight will go to college.
Twenty-six will remain in the
second year of college.
Eighteen will get a degree with-
in six years."
This news comes at a time
when it is estimated 85 percent
of all individuals will need at
least some post secondary
schooling in order to be suc-
cessful in the increasingly tech-
nical work place.
According to Willard
Daggett, who founded the
International Center for
Leadership in Education and
whose work is being embraced
by Highlands County educa-
tors, bachelor's degrees in sci-
ence and engineering make up
60 percent of the total degrees
earned in China.
Five percent of the degrees
earned in the United States last
year were in science and engi-
neering.
According to Daggett, this
year China alone will graduate
350,000 engineers.
By 2010 it is predicted that


90 percent of all of the world's
scientists and engineers will be
in Asia.
U.S. enrollment in science
and engineering has dropped by
12 percent in the last five years.
Nearly one-half of all United
States enrollments in science,
technology, engineering and
mathematics are students who
are not U.S. citizens.
In 1975 the United States
ranked third in -the world in the
percentage of its students who
received degrees in science and
engineering. Today the United
States ranks 17th in the world.
As if those figures weren't
sobering enough, last year more
than 51,000 Florida high school
students who should have grad-
uated in the class of 2005, failed
to do so.
At least 30 percent of the
state's students don't graduate
in four years.
There has been a documented
drop in academic skills, and an
increase in ninth-grade failure.
After teen pregnancy,
Algebra 1 is the number one
reason students drop out of high
school.
In Florida there is only one
guidance counselor for every
419 students.
It is important to remember
these problems are nationwide,

School to learn more about what to expect next school year during a

and not just Highlands County's
alone.
But educators in Highlands
County are determined to find a
solution.
Actually, Wally Cox, school
superintendent, members of the
school board, district and
school administrators and
teachers all say there is no sim-
ple answer or single fix.
They have been attending
model school conferences, and


reviewing the latest research to
come up with a useful response.
From teachers taking in-serv-
ice workshops, to parents mak-
ing sure their children get tutor-
ing, many people are working
to turn the bad news around.
One significant area of weak-
ness has been the transition
years children have to negotiate
as they advance in particular,

painting. Many of the activities
combine several arts and crafts
to let children explore different
media. All sessions will be held
at HAL's Education Center,
back of the Highlands Little
Theatre.
Back by popular demand,
three classes in Themed Arts
and Crafts are being offered this
year: "Under the Sea," "Up in
the Sky," and "Down on the
Farm." The Farm session will
accept children as young as age
4.
"In the themed classes, the
kids use a variety of techniques
to complete several projects
that illustrates the theme,"
HAIL ,Manager ahd Interim


Camp Director Tara Hughes
explains. "Last year, for Up in
the Sky, they created beautiful
solar systems with painted
backgrounds and sparkling stars
and planets. They were so
proud of them."
HAL has' gathered a top-
notch group of teachers for its
summer faculty. Many are
artists drawn from HAL mem-
bership, and others are educa-
tors or professionals from the
community. All are experienced
in working with children.

ing from one facility to another
where they have to develop
friendships and relationships
with new teachers all over
again. In addition, the work is
usually much more challenging
and different. Students who
were used to success may sud-
denly find themselves strug-
gling.
This is why all three high
schools are instituting a new
program called Freshman
Foundations this coming school
year.
The goal is t6 create a safe
environment while building a
collaboration between students
and faculty. The students will
be taught how to manage time,
and study effectively, and learn
public speaking. The idea is to
promote a healthy self-esteem.
By building a relationship of
trust with each other and adults,
the young people will be better
able to learn.
The faculty and administra-
tion will make the course work
relevant. For example, reading
will be taught using geography
as the content matter.
When students trust their
teachers, and understand the
relevance of what they are
learning, the rigor and com-
plexity take care of themselves.
Freshmen Foundation also
aims to help students begin to
think about their future, and
plan realistically so they can
reach attainable goals.
The district is also using the
work of Flip Flippen, a psychol-
ogist who has done extensive
research in education. He advo-
cates capturing kids hearts as a
way to work with them.
In order to accomplish this
ambitious agenda, freshmen
will study in a separate part of
the campus, and work among
themselves. They will be creat-
ing social contracts, and devel-
oping self-discipline.
Teachers are excited about
the possibilities and plan to
come together .over the summer
to discuss the many ppsshbili-
ties. '

Coldwell

Banker to

sponsor

Drama Camp

student
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Coldwell
Banker Highlands Properties
became the first of Highlands
County businesses to sponsor
an aspiring theatre student for
the outdoor drama arts camp to
be held this summer at South
Florida Community College
campus in Lake Placid from
June 19-30.
"When the company found
out that I was working on the
project," said co-chair Rita
Youngman, also a Realtor at
Coldwell Banker, "they asked if
they could sponsor a student
who might not be able to pay
his own way. The fee of $295 is
certainly a bargain for all that
we will be offering in this first
drama summer camp." But, she
said there are some young peo-
ple who might not be able to
afford it.
"This is a wonderful way for
our local county businesses to
not only support the arts, but to
help train our young people in a
field that they might not other-
wise have the opportunity to
explore," she concluded.
Doris Gentry, president of
Florida' Heartland Heritage
'Foundation, which is producing
the outdoor drama and sponsor-
ing the first county-wide theatre
camp this summer, commends
the immediate response by
Coldwell Banker.
"This is no surprise, howev-
er," Gentry said. "Highlands

to our educational and cultural
needs. We welcome other busi-
nesses who are willing to sup-
port this new program of eco-
nomic opportunity and cultural
enrichment."
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 also will
have outstanding recreational
and educational opportunities,
including a swim party, an
archaeology dig, a backstage
tour of Highlands Little Theatre
and picnics.
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 the 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.
The map fee also will include
two field trips. On June 22, stu-
dents will be transported to
Highlands Little Theatre Where
executive director Vanessa
Logsdon will conduct a unique
backstage tour. On June 29,
Anne Reynolds, outdoor drama
board member and former pres-
ident of Kissimmee Valley
Archaeological and Historical
Conservancy, will coordinate a
session on early Florida history
and an archaeology dig on the
prominent Blueberry site adja-
cent to the outdoor drama site.
Fee for the two-week camp is
$295, which includes sessions,
lunches, snacks, field trips and
materials. The camp runs daily,
Monday through Friday, from 8
a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration will

slots are filled.

Thor: Hiker calls in from 1-10 near Palm Springs


By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Thor Knutson
has reached Interstate 10 near
Palm Springs.
As of 9 a.m. Pacific Standard
Time, Friday, May 5, Knutson
was at a Laundromat at Motel 6,
washing his hiking clothes.
He's covered 206 miles of
the Pacific Crest Trail, which at
first he thought wasn't that far,
until he worked it out for
Florida.
"Shoot, that's Sebring to
Georgia," he said.
He planned to stock up some
extra food to see him to Big
Bear, about 69-70 miles away,
as well as eat lunch before he
left Friday. He figured on hik-
ing for an hour or two in the
dark that evening.
In Southern California
desert, it's easier to hike early
and stop a couple of hours
under a cool rock for lunch
before finishing. Friday was in
the mid-80s with a 17 mph
wind.
"That should help a little bit,"
Knutson said.
Bams
Knutson hiked the first week
of May with "Barns," another
through-hiker he met at Mt.
Laguna.
They caught up with each
other twice. Barns was with
another hiker, "Ryan."
Ryan got off the trail and
skipped the San Jacinto Moun-
tains. Knutson figures Ryan
will stop after Big Bear where
he has a drop box with a lot of
equipment.
Barns hiked the Appalachian
Trail last year, so he's only had
a six-month hiking break, com-
pared to Knutson's six years.
"His hiking legs are pretty
good," Knutson said.
Knutson has just begun to get
used to hiking every day.
Starting early
Knutson is glad he started in
April: Water is plentiful. Creeks
that only flow every five years
'have water, helped by two years
I of rains.

Thor Knutson sits on a snow capped rock near a creek, taking a
break on the first 206 miles of his hike.


* -. .-
Water caches, like this one, help
keep the loads lighter to carry
along the way.
In addition, the weather is
cooler. That takes less water. On
one "6-liter stretch" of the trail,
he only needed three.
Without water caches, he
said, he'd have to carry eight to
nine liters. Hikers behind him
will suffer the most, because
creeks will dry up soon, and so
will water caches.
Knutson has seen two
snakes, but no rattlesnakes or
large animals.
Scaling high and low
At one point' two or three
days ago, Knutson and Barns
were 9,000 feet up, hiking
through 12 miles of snow in the
San Jacinto Mountains.
In snow, Knutson and Bams
only covered 12 miles all day: 7


a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The next day
it was all downhill from 9,000
to 1,500 feet, where the San
Andreas Fault splits the moun-
tains.
Knutson and Barns did 20
miles that day: Two hours in
snow and the rest below the
snow line.
By Sunday (today), he
expected to be back up 9,000
feet.
After Big Bear, it's lower ele-
vation with little or no snow for
100 miles, so Knutson will
switch back to tennis shoes.
Catching breath
Hiking mountains feels steep
because it's hard for Knutson,
being from Florida, to catch his
breath. Once he gets above
7,000, he notices the difference,
and stops for a minute every 10-
15 minutes.
He said when you can't keep
a steady pace going uphill, it's
better to slow down and take
your time.
Treeless
The views most days, every
day, all day long, are the biggest
difference from the
Appalachian Trail, Knutson
said.
"If you got a view (on the

because you popped out of the
trees.and could see something,"


he said.
On the Pacific Crest Trail,
hikers go several days without
seeing a large tree. The draw-
back: Without shade, the sun
shines all day long.
Knutson puts on sun screen
on at least twice a day and lip
balm every two to three hours.
Ice axe, hiking pole
Knutson never found the ice
axe he accidentally left at a
campsite.
He hoped someone would
bring it to the Annual Day Zero
Pacific Crest Trail Kickoff,
April 28-29, in Lake Morena
County Park.
No one did.
"It probably made some-
body's day when they found it,"
he said.
He bought a new one, for
$75, in Idyllwild. It attaches to
the top of his hiking poles and
saves packing weight. Plus, he
doesn't have to choose between
the axe or the pole.
"If I fall, my ice axe is right
there," he said. "It's better than
the old one, anyway."
Thanks for support
Knutson appreciates all the
support people have sent via e-
mail. He hasn't sat in front of a
computer since he left, but he's
read a lot of them in his mail

Knutson also thanks John gets a good phone signal, he

BILL
Continued from 1A

"This is what we need -
tougher laws and this is what
the fight is all about," said
Jessica's father, Mark Lunsford,
in response to the bill's passage.
"This honors both girls, but
should also serve to remember
all kids those not mentioned
by name."
Nelson said Friday that his
provision will help Florida's
new program and encourage
other states to adopt similar ini-
tiatives. A Florida law enacted
last year requires lifetime track-
ing by global positioning satel-
lites.
"Funding is key in making
sure tougher laws are effec-
tive," Nelson said.
Highlands County doesn't
have any such system, yet, but
ankle bracelets are not unusual.
Electronic monitoring tech-
nology consists of satellite sys-
tems and a tracking device
worn around the ankle. When
the wearer is in the wrong
place, parole officers and police
can be alerted.
Nationwide, there are an esti-
mated 380,000 registered sex
offenders in the United States,
and authorities say the where-
abouts of thousands are

Tuesday night
SEBRING Democrats in
Precinct 25 will meet at the
Democratic Headquarters at 6,
p.m. Tuesday to discuss organ-
izing strategies for the
November election.
Democrats who vote at the
Church of Christ of Sebring
Parkway are encouraged to

about the meeting or upcoming

unknown.
Beyond Nelson's provision,
the Senate bill creates a nation-
al database of sex offenders,
rather than state-managed
records. The legislation tough-
ens current laws by requiring
monthly in-person registration
by sex offenders, with failure to
register constituting a felony.
Sharon Burch, certified law
enforcement analyst with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, knows of only one sexu-
al offender who had to ask pro-
bation to turn his ankle bracelet
off so he could go to the sher-
iff's office to re-register.
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies personally check once
a month on the addresses of the
seven predators living in the
county, as well as once every
three months for the remaining
101 offenders.
That's more than the state of
Florida requires twice each
year for offenders and once
every three to four months for
predators, Burch said.
Even before Sheriff Susan
Benton was elected, while lieu-
tenant in charge of the Criminal
Investigations Division, she
wanted sexual offenders
checked more often, Burch
said, especially since the exact
number of sexual offenders in
the county fluctuates almost
daily.


FIRE

to rest.
He'd only relaxed for about
five minutes before his wife
Wendy McSwain Strap came in
and asked him if he wanted
some coffee, he said.
I She had just started to make
it, he said, when there was fire
and smoke coming from the
bedroom.
He tried to put the fire out
and remove the blankets and
mattress, but it was too late.
Within minutes, the fire had
spread to the entire house.
He was glad the children,
ages 5 and 3, were with their
grandmother Thursday night.


'Funding is key

in making sure

tougher laws

are effective.'
U.S. SENATOR BILL NELSON

In Highlands County, all sex-
ual offenders have to re-register
twice each year, and get new
photos taken, if necessary.
Those on probation and
supervision also are checked by
the Department of Corrections
on a regular basis, with updates
made to the Florida Crime
Information Center computer
records.
Deputies keep close tabs on
sexual offenders, Burch said, by
knowing home and work
addresses; home, work and cel-
lular phone numbers; vehicle
make, model and license infor-
mation, and even personal con-
tact information for employers.
Also, the sheriff's office puts
out a periodic catalog listing
sexual offenders' names, photo-
graphs, addresses and offenses.
. Sexual offenders can move
around a lot, Burch said. When
any predator changes an
address, deputies personally go
out to "paper neighborhoods"


Terry Strap said he was rent-
ing the home. He had just
moved north from Miami.
Chris Horton and Theresa
McNee, also there, had stayed
with the Straps for about a
month and a half.
Horton worried McNee
would have slept through the
fire if he wouldn't have gotten
her up and out.
The Straps both lost every-
thing they had, including identi-
fication, except that his
Denny's work uniform was not
in the home at the time. His
transportation his bicycle -
was lost in the fire, he said.
Charles Andrews, incident
commander with the Highlands
CountN Fire Service, confirmed
there were no injuries from the.
fire. The call came in at 8:20


with flyers, Burch said.
Sometimes that's done with
offenders, too.
The reverse 911 system also
helps. It contacts people within
five to 10 miles, and perhaps
further away than that.
"It's pretty much a full time
job to keep track of where they
are moving," she said, 'but I
feel comfortable being a mother
myself that we are doing the
best to keep the citizens and the
predators safe."
Back when Jessica Lunsford
and Sarah Lunde were killed,
there was a lot of concern on
whether that could happen in
Highlands County. In addition
to all the parents calling in, sex-
ual offenders called in to ask
whether or not they were safe.
Burch advised them that the
best thing they could do is not
to get into trouble.
She also tells them, that if
they have something going on
in their lives that might inter-
fere with complying with the
law, they should let the sheriff's
office or their probation office
know about it.
If anyone has questions about
local sex offender monitoring,
Burch asks them to contact the
sheriff's office at 402-7200.

press information from Sen. Bill
Nelson's office.

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


An utterly

disgusting job

If you're eating while read-
ing this, you might want to
switch to the sports page and
come back when you're done.
That's because alligators
and crocodiles are similar to
crabs their meat is deli-
cious, you just don't want to
know how it got there. But of
course, I'm going to tell you.
Allen Register, who owns
and operates Gatorama, feeds
his reptiles a two-course diet.
Part of the food is a protein
rich, grain based, large kibble,
dry food. The alligators adore
it.
However, it is very expen-
sive, so Register supplements
the dry food with raw chicken.
A moment for a little biolo-
gy.
Alligators and crocodiles
have conical teeth. That means
they can grab and hold onto
their prey, but can't saw off a
bite like we can.
Instead, holding onto their
meal with their powerful jaws
(which can apply 3,000
pounds of pressure per square
inch), they twist their heads, or
in the water twirl their whole
body, to tear a piece off. Then
they swallow it whole.
Being animals who spend a
lot of time in the water, they
have a valve in the back of
their throats which -4hus ito

It's simply gatorlicious


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
PALMDALE There are 23 differ-
ent breeds of crocodile, only two differ-
ent types of alligator. The United States
is the only place where both crocodiles
and alligators are native inhabitants.
The American crocodile is very rare
and can only be found in the Key West,
Florida Bay area. It is on the endangered
species list.
The American alligator, once thought
to be on the edge of extinction, can be
found throughout the southeast. From as
far north as North Carolina, and as far
west as Texas, the American alligator
has made a strong comeback.
It thrives in Louisiana and Florida;
particularly in Central Florida.
In fact, Allen Register, who owns and
operates Gatorama, a business built
around alligators, said there isn't a body
of water in Florida that doesn't have an
alligator in it.
For example, on Lake Istokpoga 714
alligators, measuring three to six feet,
were recorded in 1994. In 2003, that
number had tripled to 2,206.
In 1986, alligators were redefined
from endangered to "threatened due to
similarity of appearance." This designa-
tion is to provide protection to endan-
gered crocodiles, by regulating alligators
and the trade of alligator products.
The state allows alligator farming,
hunting in season and the trapping, by
designated professionals, of nuisance
alligators.
Alligator farms are regulated by the
Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission, and
the United States Department of
Agriculture. These agencies oversee the
treatment of the animals, their harvest,
and the handling of the meat and hides.
Because a farm's waste water is so
rich in nutrients that it can effect the sur-


rounding area, alligator farms have to
purify their waste water using retaining
lagoons, and land filters just like a dairy
farm does.
At Gatorama, alligators are raised in
covered tanks, called grow out houses,
which measure about 20 feet in diame-
ter. They hold enough water for the alli-
gators to be comfortable and the insides
are coated with a gel-like substance to
decrease the risk of injury to the alliga-
tors' hides.
Upwards of 400 hatchlings are put in
one tank, then as the alligators grow
larger, they are shifted to different tanks,
with fewer animals in each shift.
In the wild, an alligator grows about a
foot a year. That is primarily due to the
weather, Register said. An alligator's
body has to be at least 70 degrees for it
to be able to digest food. In a pinch, in
the wild, an alligator can make five
pounds of food last a whole year.
But for farming to be cost effective, it
is critical for an animal to gain weight
quickly.
By keeping the out grow houses in the
90 degree range,, the young alligators
remain hungry and gobble up the high
protein food they are fed once a day.
That means an average farmed alliga-
tor will grow about two feet, sometimes
even more, in a year.
They are typically harvested when
they measure four to five feet, or are
about 2 years old.
To harvest, the alligator is removed
from the out grow house and shot in the
ear with a .22 caliber handgun. The head
is cut from body, and the animal is then
processed. Register harvests about 1,000
alligators a year.
Until recently, Register said, the farm
and the public attraction component of
his business brought in about the same
amount of revenue. But hides have so
.dropped in value that now the public

JOB
Continued from 13A
keep them from drowning
when they open their mouths
under water.
That means they can only
swallow with their heads held
up in the air.
It also means that sometimes
what they are trying to swallow
is too big to fit through the
open valve. So they hold it in
their mouth until it rots and is
squishy enough for an easy
gulp or they wait for the
whole animal to deteriorate to
make for easier tearing into
smaller pieces.
Either way, when it comes to
food, alligators aren't picky. In
fact, the more decomposed the
meal, the better they like it.
Which brings us back to the
chicken.
Register buys chickens by
the case, and lets them age
until they're ripe.
I mean dripping, stinking
ripe.
The odor of these chickens
is as sweet as perfume, but
with a nasty bite that turns the


stomach.
Put it this way, if an odor
was visible this one would be a
messy, bloody car wreck the
kind where you don't want to
look, but at the same time you
can't turn your eyes away.
As much as the smell nause-
ated me, I found myself breath-
ing it in.
It hung in the air and clung
to my clothes. I still smelled it
on me in the late afternoon,
long after I'd gotten home.
Handling the chicken was
utterly disgusting. They were
wet enough, in their own juice,
to make sucking sounds every
time I lifted one up.
My job was to take chickens
from the cardboard boxes and
put them whole into a powerful
grinder. They came out the
other end looking a little like
sausage stuffing.
The ground up meat landed
in a large wooden box, and we
used shovels to mix in the dry
alligator food.
Then we shoveled the mix
into five gallon plastic buckets
and carried those, in an adapt-
ed golf cart, to the grow out
houses where the alligators are


The chickens Christopher Tuffley is slinging into the grinder are aged to an alligator's liking, but
humans find them disgusting and dangerous. The smell was overpowering sweet, sticky and very
unpleasant and the chickens were so juicy the gloves didn't feel like much protection.


farmed. There we put shovel-
fuls into each grow out house
where the alligators swarmed
up to eat it.
, This was by far the most dis-
gusting task I've had to do for
this feature.


Even though I was wearing
surgical gloves I didn't feel
protected. At one point my
hands felt soaking wet inside,
not just outside the gloves. I've
worn latex gloves before and
know that hands sweat, but in
this case I became irrational
and convinced the chicken
juice had run down into the
tight fitting glove and soaked
my skin.
Of course it hadn't, but for
once I could identify with
Howard Hughes and imagined
vast armies of salmonella
germs running up my arms.
Throughout this Register


stood back laughing. "This is
the best job you're going to
never want to do again," he
said.


He was right.
I was just proud I hadn't
tossed my cookies.
Despite the stomach churn-
ing diet, alligator meat is truly
tasty and nutritious. According
to the Florida Department of
Agriculture, a four ounce por-
tion has about 145 calories and
is 97 percent fat free. Compare
that to the same amount of
skinless chicken breast which
has 170 calories, 21 percent
from fat.
Alligator meat should be
thawed in a cold refrigerator as
thawing it at room temperature
makes the meat mushy. It
should be cooked through so
the juices run clear and there's
no hint of pinkness when you
cut into it.

Next week Christopher
Tuffley visits Layes Tire Service
in Avon Park and learns how
the rubber hits the road. For
details on how to be featured
in a Tuffin'It With Tuffley fea-
ture call 385-6155, ext. 528.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Young alligators crowd around at feeding time in their grow out house. The house's cement floor and
walls are heated by pipes carrying water heated through solar power. The water is kept warm to keep
the alligators hungry. Here,.they are eating their favorite food, a special dry kibble high in protein. Then
they are feed ground up chicken mixed with more kibble. Gatorama goes through 14,000 pounds of
chicken every month.

-Register-said- alligator meat
is gaining in popularity. Farmed
alligator meat is delicate and
slightly sweet in flavor. The tail
produces the greatest amount,
but alligator ribs and tenderloin
also are popular.
, For example, every couple of
weeks Register ships 60 to 70
pounds of frozen alligator meat
to the Double Musky Inn in
Girdwood, Alaska. The Inn spe-
cializes in Cajun cuisine, and
sells a lot of Florida alligator.
Gatorama has hundreds of
alligators on display and living
comfortably in large man-made
water ponds. It is one of the
sources for alligator eggs.
The state runs a program in
the wild as well. Since 1994,
Register has been elected by
fellow alligator farmers to coor-
dinate and lead the state's annu-
al alligator egg collection. Open
to only the first 30 farmers to
sign-up, 50 percent of all found
eggs are distributed for future
harvest.
Register is clearly fond of his
alligators and crocodiles. He
has the largest breeding colony
of crocodiles in the country.
He said the animals, which
have a brain the size of a lima
bean, can be trained. One
group, Reptile Amphibian
Training Enhancement, is
working with crbcodilians for
entertainment companies like
Walt Disney.
"Alligators are cool,"
Register said, adding that his


reptiles can tell the difference
between the red shirts he wears
when feeding them or cleaning
their habitats and the turquoise
dress shirts he wears when per-
forming for an .ilelice "
He told dlof onenal-igator

Fire Marshal asks residents to practice arson awareness


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING With extreme-
ly dry conditions in central
Florida right now, firefighters
and fire investigators want resi-
dents to use extreme caution
with fire.
May 7-13 marks National
Arson Awareness Week. This
year's theme is "Wildfires
Arson Preparedness and
Prevention."
Part of the goal includes
focusing public attention on
wildfire arson, particularly on
the wildland-urban interface.
Arson is an intentionally set
fire, not accidental. Even if a
fire wasn't meant to cause dam-
age, the person who set it could
face arson charges.
Arson and other uncontrolled
wildland fires pose a serious
threat to lives, property, and
natural resources in rural and
sub-urban communities. It's
particularly hazardous on the
wildland-urban interface, where
structures and other human


development meet, or intermin-
gle, with forests and grasslands.
Preventing, mitigating and
preparing for wildland fire is
important to protect lives, mini-
mize property loss, and ensure
firefighter safety.
Community and individual
involvement is critical, accord-
ing to the United States Fire
Administration and Interna-
tional Association of Arson
Investigators.
Control fires
When people live in a wild-
land interface, such as many of
the homes in rural central
Florida, they should build fires
away from trees or bushes and
have a way to extinguish a fire
quickly and completely.
They should also never leave
a fire, or a cigarette, unattended.
During the current dry condi-
tions, however, outdoor burning
is not permitted.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
A group of five Korean Rotarians have been visiting Florida for two weeks now. They have been
spending time in Highlands County, staying with local families. Four of the men are high school
teachers, so they have spent time at local schools like Sebring High School and Heartland
Christian School. They have also toured Ridge Area Arc to see example of education for the
handicapped, and spent time at South Florida Community College to learn about career and
vocational and continuing adult education. They will be heading to Orlando today to attend a
Rotary Convention there. Pictured here while visiting the Avon Park Museum are (from left)
Kim Hyun Ho and Ro Tae-Jong. Renee Bennett (right), who is hosting two of the teachers, was
escorting them around town.

Mobile unit scans documents


News-Sun classified ads get results


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The newest
business for Highlands County
is a self-contained mobile unit
that visits business and scans its
documents while maintaining
top-level security.
Many businesses are
required by law to retain origi-
nal documents for a certain time
- usually up to seven years.
Businesses such as doctors,
attorneys, real estate, mortgage
and banking firms accumulate
large volumes of files over
time. These not only add to
administrative and storage
costs, but data is sometimes
hard to track down, with impor-
tant information often being
lost or misplaced.
Simple Document Solutions
Inc. solves these problems by
quickly scanning documents,
not only onto a hard copy CD,
but also a backup server system
that can be accessed via the
Internet. It then becomes the
original document so that the
paper can be destroyed. In addi-
tion, this is a cost savings for
the client because no additional
software or hardware is needed.
The hard copy or backup
copy of files can be maintained
off-site, or even out-of-state in a
secure location. This ensures
that the business will always
have access to their documents
and files even after a natural
disaster. Armstead also pro-
vides a secured Web site, which
can only be accessed by using
an authorized username and
password. These files and docu-
ments can then be reviewed
24/7. In addition, this can be
uniquely designed for each
client so that they not only
restrict access to files, but at


SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Paul Armstead, owner of Simple Document Solutions, Inc. at his cus-
tomized office in the utility trailer of his mobile on-site scanning
service


anytime they can modify or
restructure the document label-
ing without altering the actual
document.
Armstead feels people are
and should be much more sensi-
tive to security issues like iden-
tity theft. He spent more than
eight years in the United States
Air Force Security Police, hold-
ing a secret clearance. When he
moved to this area six years
ago, he worked first with the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office as a deputy, then in a
Special Operations Unit for two
years, and finally the Criminal


Investigation Division for the
last three years.
"My experience qualifies me
to properly handle and safekeep
all types of confidential docu-
ments. Besides, our future is
toward a paperless direction,
which is easier to manage,".
Armstead said.
Today people want and need
their infrastructure and daily
operating documents in a paper-
less form. They want to be able
to immediately access it at their
fingertips. Presently most busi-
nesses use the post office or
couriers to pick up and deliver


documents for an off-site scan-
ning service. And that creates a
lag time before the scanned
records are returned. But those
businesses that need to refer to
records daily don't have the
luxury of relinquishing docu-
ments even for that short period
of time.
"My high-speed scanning
service is very secure, conven-
ient, and practical. Their docu-
ments can be scanned monthly,
bi-monthly, or even weekly -
whichever works best for them.
I even give free estimates,"
Armstead said. Sometimes
businesses are unable to locate
documents when needed,
requiring many man-hours and
hundreds of files to search. He
can easily organize and set up
files for each unique business
application. His mobile scan-
ning unit is fitted with cameras
inside and out and all his ses-
sions are recorded for security.
He will soon be offering the
additional feature of an on-site
industrial shredder.
"In our area, there are an
abundance of elderly who have
an increased need of medical
care. For physicians, the client
information can be input into
files and scanned. Then the
information is the most updated
and accurate for that particular
patient,"Armstead said.
Simple Document Solutions
Inc. is mobile and will come
directly to an office to scan and
secure documents. Call 235-
0623 or toll free at (866) 764-
7362; or go to www.simpledoc-

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Nutrition

for the soul
It has been said that well-
ness is a journey not a desti-
nation. For 24 years, my
husband and I have been on
a wellness journey.
We embarked on it seri-
ously when the nudging
within his body turned into
a jolt asthma pushing
itself to the forefront of our
lives.
Isn't that how it often is
in other types of journeys
too?
When Ken and I first met,
the economy was in reces-
sion. Finding an affordable
house in our location was
impossible. Like a horse
sometimes nudges its owner
from behind, we felt prod-
ded to move further into the
country. Then, some years
later, we were jolted from
our reverie and almost cata-
pulted out of New Jersey to
Florida.
These physical moves
were accompanied by a
quest for wellness that was
developing steadily and con-
tinually. In order to nurture
our bodies, organic, whole
food nutritional supplemen-
tation played a key role.
Along with that, we learned
more about the working of
our bodies and the role of
exercise. To this day, I'm an
eager student learning better
ways of shopping and cook-
ing.
The body thrives when
provided nutrition that feeds
the cells. When we ignore
this truth, we aren't really
nutritionally sound. We may
feel full. But, wellness must
occur at the cell level
And so it i- '.% ith the soul
Soul health comes ,,hen
we nourish it with joy. If all
we do is pursue happiness,
it's like filling up on non-
nutritious food. Something
vital is missing.
Consequently, we're happy
for a time, but hunger pains
grip the heart for more -
longing to be satisfied.
Pursuing happiness may
take on many forms: mar-
riage, career, wealth or trav-
el to name a few. And, for a
,time, we may think we've
'found what will last. Until
reality sets in with that first
disappointment, unfulfilled
dream, loss of finances or
weariness of living out of a
suitcase. We discover that
happiness is as illusive as a
butterfly in flight.
We're hungry at the soul
level.
Jo) ,on the other hand
isn't dependent upon cir-
cumstances. It's the result of
being in right relationship
with God; of knowing his
rest, hope and purpose. Joy
is to the soul what proper
nutrition is to the cell. It
nurtures it and creates a
healthy vibrancy of spirit.
"You have made known
to me the path of life; you
will fill me with joy in your
presence, with eternal pleas-
ures at your right hand,"
Psalm 16: 11, NIV.
Those eternal pleasures
can be ours now. Eternity
begins when we come to
God in faith and receive his
free gift of salvation in
Jesus Christ. Joy takes up
residence in our hearts
because God resides there.
That's nutrition for the
soul. Selah.

State park trains its




museum volunteers


'Give 'em the pickle'
By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
T he folks attending the training sessions
for volunteer docents meaning hosts
:or hostesses .- at the Ci\ ilian
Conservation Corps Museum at Highlands
Hammock State Park in April learned a lot.
Through lectures and videos, they learned
something about the history of the park and the
history of the era of the CCC. Through ranger-

guided tram rides and walks, they learned about
nature, about the various kinds of plant commu-
nities found in the park, about its wildlife, the
damage caused by the hurricanes and how dan-
gerously dry conditions are today. They learned
all that the park offers the public, like trails and
camping and tram rides and concerts ... and
\ild oilnge pie. and theN learned .,boiu working
in the museum itself how to turn on the
audio-visuals, even how to clean the bathrooms.
But most of all, they learned how to relate to
visitors. They learned "to give 'em the pickle."
"Give 'em the Pickle" is the name of a cus-
tomer service training video shown during park
staff training sessions. The video had been pro-
duced by the owner of a chain of restaurants
who once received a letter from a customer
complaining he had asked for an extra pickle
with his sandwich and was refused. That inci-
dent triggered off a new way of looking at cus-
tomer service for the company.
That new way can be summed up as "It's not
what we sell, it's who we serve."
It's also the policy of Highlands Hammock
State Park.
As Jeanne Parks, assistant park manager, put
it, "If I have a visitor who visits the park only
once, I've failed in my job. I want people to
come back time and again."
She wants her staff including the volun-
teers to go the extra mile in their dealings
with visitors, to "give them the pickle."
Parks and the video stressed the need to treat
customers and visitors as though "they're the

to %w ork as volunteerss at the Ci ilian Conservation Corps
Museum at Highlands Hammock State Park.
"W\Ve'\e done a lot of camping. especially in state parks,
but this is the first time we've lived close enough to a park

The\ both agreed the staff did an excellent job with the
training' program. "Tess is more in to history than I am,"
Lee said. "so I'd like to teel more secure about that part of
it. I Also hope to be able to do some maintenance work in
the park He also admitted that when he retires, he'd like to
become a park ranger.
Sebring resident Grace Sagona, 85, who is already serv-
ing as a docent at the Museum of Florida Art and Culture at
South Flonda Community College, also signed up for the
training. She enjoys volunteering at the college and thought
working at the CCC Museum "would also be a very rich
experience. I like to keep my mind active."
She said that as a oung girl she spent "19 years of my
life camping. Camping is in my blood. And I know
Highlands Hammock State Park from when my own chil-

And Partt Llo\d, another new volunteerr who was bom in

she especially likes the idea of working in an air-condi-

Listen to her heart, not just her words


* Fitness. Ever try it?
It requires commitment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories compiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
,you to stretch, tighten and tone the soul

of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

"I'm afraid in that truck," Ruth mur-
mured.
She spoke so softly, Harold would
have missed it if he hadn't been aware of
her demeanor. He'd been toying with an
idea for a few weeks, but she had been
reluctant. So he had snowballed over the
warning signs.
Harold had received tickets for his
favorite college football team. Fitting it
into his busy schedule had been tricky;
justifying the fuel expense gnawed at
him. Soaring gas prices had him digging
deeper into his pockets with no end in
sight.
That's why, when the idea had come
to him, he excitedly shared it with Ruth
fully expecting her to agree. When she
bristled, he put it off.
After a time, the discussion waned


and he assumed she'd
agree in the end. The
game was just a few
days away; so, he
worked his plan.
Being a guy who
loved to solve prob-
lems, he was rather
pleased with himself.
However, in his
eagerness to get organ-
ized, he neglected to
run his idea by Ruth

again.
Her profession took her on the road to
various outskirts in the community. She
drove a dependable, but economic vehi-
cle. This car fit her like a comfortable
pair of slippers. No matter how far or
wide the trek, she drove there with con-
fidence first in God; but, also,
because she knew her vehicle and felt
safe in it.
A few days before the trip, she tense-
ly sat at the kitchen table studying for an
upcoming practicum test stressed to
the max with her workload. She was
unaware of what Harold was up to.
Outdoors, he had been removing her
things from her car and transferring
them into his truck and vice versa. Once
done, he came into the kitchen and dis-
closed what he'd been doing assured this
was a satisfactory arrangement.
That's when he heard her muffled
voice. He took one look at Ruth's face


and realized she not
only was inwardly
fuming, but she was
hurt.
Harold would have
liked to ignore the
obvious. In fact, argu-
ments in defense of his
plan rose awfully close
to the surface.
But, having been
married 40 years, sen-
sitivity to his wife's


needs arose. And the nudging of God's
Spirit wouldn't let him go. He took a
deep breath, whispered a prayer and sat
down beside her. Taking her hand in his,
he said kindly,
"I'm listening. Tell me why you don't
want to use the truck."'
That caring tone helped her reveal her
fears.
"It's stressful enough to find some of
the places I need to go, but at least in my
car I feel secure. I just don't feel that
way in the truck."
Ruth wasn't upset about him going;
she wasn't upset about the gas prices.
She just needed to be considered and
included in the solution. Within
moments, Harold switched the belong-
ings of the vehicles once again.
He had heard her heart and realized
that the few dollars he would save didn't
come near to the worth of his wife's
peace of mind.


Warm-up time
Getting one's own way may
solve the immediate need. But,
listening with one's heart and not
just one's ears, will resolve so
much more.

Sit-up and take notice
Body language, words spoken
under one's breath, eyes that mist
or can't look at one's spouse
directly all are signs that
something is amiss. Don't ignore
these signs. Lean into them.

Curl-up together
A gentle touch accompanied
by a tone of voice that says, "I
really want to know your
thoughts. I care about you," will
nurture open, heartfelt communi-
cation. The result will be trust,
peace of mind and renewed inti-
macy.

Soul fitness
"Be kind and compassionate
to one another, forgiving each
other, just as in Christ God for-
gave you." Ephesians 4:32, NIV.

English language can be very confusing for most people


When do you think of calling
your library? Some call us as
soon as they have a question,
but some only think of using
this free resource when they are
really frustrated. One such
caller had spent a good deal of
time trying to look up a word in
the dictionary, but you know
you can't find a word unless
you know how to spell it.
Making matters worse, the first
letter of the word was silent.
Don't let anyone tell you that
the English language is easy ...
it is filled with words that sound
the same but are entirely differ-
ent (see and sea, would and
wood), crazy spelling combina-
tions (vacuum, weird, phlegm),
and phlegm also is one of those
words which isn't spelled the
way its letters sound (phonics,
pneumonia, ptomaine), and
rules about too and to, its and
it's, which baffle many
wood/would-be writers.
American musician and
entrepreneur Quincy Jones
summed up the role of library
workers when he said, "Imagine


what a harmonious
world it could be if
every single person,
both young and old,
shared a little of
what he is good at
doing." So, call us
and let us share what
we know.
Thinking of silent
things, those who
watch court TV
know the mantra of
forensic science is
that though the vic-
tim is silenced, the

Behind Nine Shocking Cases,"
or "Who Killed- King Tut?:
Using Modern Forensics to
Solve a 3,300-year-old
Mystery.".
Take home Michael Baden's
"Remains Silent" for a sus-


pense-filled fiction
look at forensic sci-
ence in action. D.J.
Donaldson sets his
medical examiner's
practice in New
Orleans, calling it
"Sleeping With the
Crawfish." Stella
Cameron also has a
Louisiana setting in
"Cold Day in July."
Kathy Reichs goes
north with her story,
"Deadly Decisions,"


taking place in
Montreal (Quebec). Boston
medical examiner Maura Isles
plies her trade in Tess
Gerritsen's "Body Double" and
"The Sinner."
You can't forget the novels of
Robert Walker, with his FBI
medical examiner Jessica
Coran, because they all share a
common word: "Bitter
Instinct," "Blind Instinct,"
"Grave Instinct" and
"Unnatural Instinct."
Who gets the blue ribbon for
the most well known forensic


novels? Set in Virginia, with her
scrappy heroine Kay Scarpetta,
Patricia Comwell has written a
large body of work on forensic
science. You'll find her unset-
tling stories on sound record-
ings, as well as the printed
page. Prepare for a long night's
read with: "All That Remains,"
"Body of Evidence," "Black
Notice," "Cause of Death,"
"Blow Fly," "From Potter's
Field," "Body Farm,"
"Postmortem," "Cruel and
Unusual," "Point of Origin,"
"Last Precinct" or "Unnatural
Exposure."
For those of us who prefer
our deaths somewhat sanitized,
you have a lot to choose from.
Who hasn't enjoyed Earle
Stanley Gardner? Try another
of his "The Case of the
Silent Partner." Get involved
with Egyptian high jinks in the
Amelia Peabody series, by
Elizabeth Peters. Take home
"Lord of the Silent."

Dishing up healthy treats using blueberries


I love trying new recipes. I
find myself buying products
from the grocery store that I
would usually never buy when
I'm trying out something new.
One thing I try to do when I'm
shopping in the produce section
is buy fresh fruit and vegetables
grown in Florida. So I thought I
would share some recipes to
help you utilize blueberries
grown in Florida.
The next few months are a
great time to find fresh, Florida
grown blueberries. Studies have
shown blueberries are extraor-
dinarily good for you. Some of
the benefits include cancer
fighting anti-oxidants, memory
and eyesight improvement,
reduction of cardiovascular dis-
ease and stroke, and urinary
infection fighting.
The following recipes are
some of my favorite ways to
cook with blueberries. I also
like to throw blueberries into
pancake or waffle batter. If
you're like me, you'll want to


make sure to buy a few extra
containers of fresh blueberries
for anytime snacking.

Clermont's Blueberry
Muffins

1 cup oats, quick-cooking,
uncooked
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup coarse sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
F. In a medium bowl, combine
oats and buttermilk. Let stand
for 30 minutes. Add egg, brown
sugar, canola oil, flour, baking
powder, baking soda, salt,


almond extract and
vanilla extract. Mix
well. Gently fold in
the blueberries.
Spoon mixture into
greased muffin pans.
Sprinkle with coarse
sugar. Bake in a 400-
degree F oven for 18
minutes.
Yield: 12-15 regu-
lar-size muffins.

Capricorn: Be thankful
Aries (March 21-April 20) -There are only
so many hours in the day, Aries, and this week,
each one of those hours must be used in pursuit
of your personal happiness. Don't waste your
time on frivolous things.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Life is neither
kind or cruel; it's what you make it. You'll get
what you deserve this week, so don't blame oth-
ers if you don't get what you want.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) -You may have to
put certain plans on hold this week,
Gemini. However, it's likely you HORO
weren't really looking forward to
going out anyway. Stay home and pay Metre
attention to yourself for a change. Ser
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
Chances are, Cancer, you feel like
hanging out in your cozy shell this week. Don't
feel that you owe it to others to go to events that
you'd rather avoid. On the contrary, they owe you
a little space.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Most people don't
want to admit it, but not all relationships are ben-
eficial and sometimes it's simply for the best to
sever those old ties. You may feel down for a
while, but you'll be fine.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) There comes a
time, Virgo, when even you must be selfish, and
that time is now. At home and in the workplace,
put your own needs first, and don't feel guilty.


PARK
Continued from 1C
boss they are why we are
here." Further, all staff and
volunteers need to remember,
"You are the face of the com-
pany to every customer and
visitor you come into contact
with," Parks said.
And staff and volunteers
need to be consistent. "People
come back because they liked'
what happened the last time,"
Parks added. And staff and vol-
unteers need to work as team
and that means "going out
of your way to make each
other look good."

Docent training
This was the first-ever
docent training program held
by the park. "We need more
volunteers so we can keep the
museum open every day,"
Parks said.
Volunteering to be a docent,
she said, is ideal "for anyone
with an interest in history and
in nature and willing to spend
a da. a week this summer in
an air-conditioned building."


and show appreciation
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) i don't give up on
something just because it doesn't come easy,
Libra. More often than not, the most challenging
things in life bring the greatest rewards. Keep
working.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Don't allow your
emotions to cloud your sense. If you do, you'll
regret it later when you realize that you've been
bamboozled. You have to be ruthlessly logical
this week.


SCOPES

o News
vice


Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
It's high time that people took you seri-
ously. Just because you're easygoing
doesn't mean that others should feel
free to take advantage of you. That spe-
cial someone has a surprise for you on


Thursday.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Be thankful
for all you get this week, Capricorn, not everyone
is as fortunate. Don't forget to show your appre-
ciation to that special someone, as well.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) You'll find it
easy to apply yourself this week, so it's a perfect
time to work on something that's really important
to you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) It's difficult not
to let your legendary compassion get the best of
you, but you must be firm. No matter how much
you sympathize or want to help out, it's not a

Sun 'N Lake Elementary wins Quiz Bowl


SEBRING The fourth and fifth grade
Highlands Advanced Academic Rising Together
classes from five elementary schools in the coun-
ty participated in a Quiz Bowl Friday, April 7, in
the Smith Center at Sebring High School.
The host of the Quiz Bowl was Highlands
County Schools Superintendent Wally Cox. The
Quiz Bowl was the brain child of Betsy Veith, the
fifth grade HAART teacher at Fred Wild
Elementary. Veith coordinated the events with the
high school and Cox.
The participating schools were asked to form a
team of four students with an alternate and coach-
ing sessions were conducted at each school prior
to the actual contest. The questions for the Quiz
Bowl were formulated by the National Honor
Society of Sebring High School under the direc-
tion of Jeanine Haft. The 140 questions were cho-
sen from the academic areas, world knowledge
areas and current events.
The winning team, Sun 'N Lake Elementary,


was composed of students from Mary Comers'
HAART class. They were coached by Cassandra
Carter, Mollie Stephens and Comers. The school
had 33 students try out for the team and after
eight weeks of coaching sessions not one student
had dropped out.
The final team was chosen by judges from off
campus but the interest level stayed high and the
students took the try outs very seriously. The final
team was composed of Kate James, Clayton
'.Cooper, Taylor Tubbs, Shivani Stockhand, and
Morgan Heston.
The Woodlawn team composed of Ashley
Longabaugh, Jared Lans. Ethan Smith, Audrey
Wolfe, Robert Heston .And/Meaghan Brothers
came in second, they were coached by Stacy
Hooks and Heidi Stivender.
Other schools who participated in the Quiz
Bowl were Lake Placid Elementary, Lake
Country Elementary and Fred Wild Elementary.

You could unknowingly be putting ."
your pets at risk by growing certain Al
species of plants. The greatest risk to -
your pet's health are being poisoned in .
the one place your pet is supposed to
be safest at home. Indoors, keeping
a pet safe is a lot like child-proofing I
everything. And the same precaution-
ary measures need to be taken in the ,
yard as well. GROV
Lots of dogs and cats like to chew
on leaves, stems and berries. Most of SEA!
the time, there's no ill effects. But
some plants can be toxic to 'dogs Highl
and/or cats; depending on the variety County
of the plant and the size and weight of Gardc
the animal, effects can range from mild --
oral irritation to poisoning.
You have a house full of beautiful plants that
you love, the problem is that your pet may love'
your plants too, at least in the gastro-delectable
sense. You don't want your pet to become seri-
ously ill as a result either. Learn which plants are
toxic and which ones are safe to have around,
pets.
Keep in mind though even if you have onhl
safe house plants in your home, ingesting an
e\cei\% e amount of the plant can cause vomiting
and/or diarrhea. If these conditions remain for
any length of time contact your etierinanan.
With excessive loss of body fluids, it is very easy
for your pet to quickly become dehydrated and
for other serious complications to develop.
Many people believe that all animals know
what is and what is not safe to eat. This is a seri-
ous and potentially fatal mistake.

The toxic chemicals of plants are
passed to an animal in one of two ways
by ingestion of plant material or by
superficial physical contact with a
plant or certain parts of the plant. If you
have ever had poison oak or ivy, you
are quite familiar with this latter
method of transmission. Some plants
are completely toxic; others have only
certain parts that are toxic, such as the
leaves, flowers, roots/rhizomes, or seeds.
Some plants contain toxins strong
enough to kill the animals other will
make them seriously ill and may lead to
death. Other plants, the toxic may effect
may depend on how much is ingested,
the size of the animal ingesting it, its


health and what else it has eaten that day.
If you are concerned about having plants
around your pet, here are a few suggestions for
'c-exist&ace:
l Place plants out of reach.- hang your plant
from the ceiling using a ceiling hook and decora-
tive plant hanger. "
For areas such as a patio or porch, a wall
bracket can be used to hang, your plant from a
higher location.
E If your pet is .insistent on digging in the dirt
of your flower pot, try double sided sticky tape
across the opening of the pot. They hate the feel
of this and it will help to train them that the
flower pot is not a fun place to play.

Avon Park Middle School Chorus travels to Sea World to perform at Soundwaves Saturday, April
29. The chorus had to go through an application process, send in pictures and video before they
would even be considered to be a performing group. The students rehearsed for six to eight weeks
in preparation for this event. After their noon performance, the students were able to spend the
rest of the day enjoying the sights and sounds of the park. Under the direction of Kevin Collier, the
Avon Park Middle School Music Department is being recognized as a quality group of musicians.
Collier is very proud of the hard work and dedication of the students that prepared and participat-
ed in this performance.

Continued from IC
John and Bernice Meek of
Sebring, both members of the
local chapter of the National
Association of CCC Alumni,
and both well into their 80s,
also took the docent training.
"We probably won't be able to
work on a regular basis,"
Bernice said, "but maybe we
can help out here and there."
Heading up the docent train-
ing program was Jeanne Parks,


assistant park manager at
Highlands Hammock State
Park. Assisting her was Ranger
Darrel Smith, former CCC
Museum curator, who offered
information about the history
of the park and the role of the
Civilian Conservation Corps.
He also led the trainees onto
one of the park's many trails
and on a tram ride for a
"behind-the-scenes" look at the
park. Handling the orientation
to the museum was the newly
hired museum curator Kyle
Mathes, who has a background


in archaeology and history.
And conducung another
tram ride as part of the docent
training was Ranger Scott
Patterson, who showed off and
explained the different plant
habitats found within the park,
with stops along the way to
view several mother alligators
and their offspring.
Former CCC enrollees John
Meek and Charles Shunk, who
attended several of the ses-
sions, gave the docents-to-be a
personal glimpse of life in the
CCC back in the 1930s.

SFCC graduate takes stock in future as deaf educator


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Looking into the future,
Michelle Kirkland sees herself teaching deaf
children how to communicate in American Sign
Language.
Looking back seven years, Kirkland remem-
bers when her dream of attending college
became a reality. Back then, Kirkland, a sixth-
grader, heard about the Take Stock in Children
scholarship program sponsored by the South
Florida Community College Foundation Inc.,
and she applied to it.
"I didn't think I would get accepted," she
said, and she was surprised to learn, one day
before the contract signing, that a Take Stock in
Children scholarship had been reserved for her.

Michelle Kirkland, one of the SFCC Foundation
Inc.'s Take Stock in Children scholars, earned her
associate in arts degree from South Florida
Community College one year after graduating
from Hardee Senior High School in Wauchula. She
plans to pursue a bachelor's degree in deaf educa-
tion.


The opportunity guaranteed that she would have
the financial support to earn a college degree,
and it paired her with Take Stock advocate
Debbie Hackney, who counseled her in making
the right choices about her education.
Now, the Wauchula native is about to see her
dream take another step closer to reality. On
May 9, during commencement at South Florida
Community College, she will accept her associ-
ate in arts degree in mass communications.
Although she is considering two colleges, she
anticipates that, by the end of the summer, she
will head to Jacksonville to complete her bache-
lor's degree in deaf education at the University
of North Florida.
Kirkland remembers the day she became a
Take Stock in Children scholar. She and the
other recipients and their parents were invited to
a reception at a local tea room, where they
signed contracts pledging to graduate from high
school, stay out of trouble, and maintain good
grades. By meeting those terms, Kirkland was
guaranteed to receive a 2+2 Scholarship, which
prepaid the tuition for her to spend two years at
a community college earning an associate's
degree and two years in a bachelor's degree pro-
gram at a state college or university.
By May 2005, she was well on her way to
claiming her Take Stock scholarship, having
graduated from Hardee Senior High School in
the top 10 percent of her class. Because she had
taken a full course load of college classes at her
high school campus during her senior year, she
had one year of college behind her.
Her career goals have changed since child-
hood. Once interested in the legal profession,
Kirkland became passionate about deaf educa-
tion while taking American Sign Language I and
II with Nancy Weems, who is also an SFCC sign
language instructor.
Kirkland practiced her signing skills by
spending two seasons as a deaf interpreter for
"The Story of Jesus," an annual spring passion
play staged in Wauchula, as well as other events.
She discovered that she liked working with chil-
dren while teaching a Sunday school class for
kindergarten through fifth-graders at Wauchula
Worship Center, spending last summer as a
camp counselor at the Hardee County Family
YMCA, and living with three younger cousins.
"It's a job, 'but it's like playing," Kirkland ,
said of her teaching experiences. "The kids are
fun to be .-ound. It'\ neat to have an impact on


their lives." covering what life has in store for her.
In addition to her Take Stock scholarship, "Without the scholarships, I wouldn't have

ties, and a year of housing at SFCC's dormitory I'll probably be back some day. I'll definitely be

Americans lost their lives in a

We also remember the plane
that crashed in Pennsylvania,
Fight 93, which may have been
headed for the Capitol building
in DC.
Like many of us, I am fasci-
nated by the story of Flight 93,
~- the one plane that did not hit its
intended target. While we don't
know everything that happened
on that airplane, we do know
that the passengers had learned
- about the other planes hitting
the Twin Towers. And instead
of waiting for death, they took
things into their own hands and
tried to take the plane away
from their captors.
Paul Greengrass must also be
fascinated by that flight,
because he wrote and directed a
movie about it, "United 93." I
saw it last weekend with Don.

there is a lot of jerky camera
movement. If you are prone to
motion sickness, you will be
feeling queasy before the film is
over. I had to close my eyes
several times and was thankful I
hadn't eaten a big meal before-
hand.
I will admit that, given
Hollywood's track record with
history, I wasn't sure what to
expect. I figured there would be
some dramatization we don't
know everything that happened
on the flight. But I had seen
"Pearl Harbor" and "Titanic"
and knew that they sometimes
had this thing about throwing in
a love story and fictional char-
acters into a historical event.
This does not happen with
"United 93." In fact,
Greengrass goes as far as to put
some of the people who were
on the ground that terrible day
into the film, reprising what


America needs

- a third party


Those on the plane are for the
most part no-name actors and
actresses. No one is really put in
a major spotlight indeed, the
first part of the film shows peo-
ple going through what they
think is a normal day. We, the
audience, know the day is going
to be anything but. However a
part of you wishes you can
change history, so these people
can go on in a normal life.
If you are looking for a polit-
ical statement, look somewhere
else. Greengrass shows us, for
the most part, just the facts. He
does not romanticize the hijack-
ers. He does not give us exten-
sive background on the passen-
gers or crew indeed, we do
not know much more about
these people in this film than
we would had we been on the
plane ourselves.
The film is intense.-1 found
myself weeping as passengers


.es, hoping
rough the
ckers, sus-
not. You
change the
his film to
ant touch-


.down on some runway, every-
one going home to spouses,
parents, children. But
Greengrass does not change
history.
I left the theater on shaky
legs. Don thought it was simply
the aftermath of my motion
sickness. I was not so sure.
Not everyone will be able to
see this film. If you can though,
it deserves to be seen. Not just
to remember the blow we took
on Sept. 11. It should be seen to
remember that normal people,
living normal lives, can do
extraordinary things.
The passengers and crew of
Flight 93 deserve to be hon-
ored. And in that, "Flight 93"
succeeds.

'Our press has never been cowed by

murderers.'


IGNACIO BUNYE, Philippine press secretary,


Editor:
Seventy-five to 100 million
illegals will go onto the Social
Security rolls next month.
I accuse the sitting president
of these United States and his
administration of destroying
the safety net of all Americans,
i.e., Social Security, Medicare
and many other programs that
stabilize our economy that
were installed as safety nets for
American citizens.
The admitting of millions of
illegals, starting in 1986, under
the Reagan/Bush administra-
tion, aiding and abetting crimi-
nals and then giving amnesty,
encouraged millions more to
-illegally come into this country
from all over the world. They
came in many ways; guest
worker programs being one of
many.
Also at a time when millions
of Americans have had their
health care policies stolen by
corporations and the sitting
president took $1 billion out of
Medicare to pay health care for
millions of illegals from all
over the world.
Now the sitting president
and his administration plan to
give amnesty to 15 million
more illegals, or should I say-an
unlimited number of millions
since we have no borders.
I would remind the
American public that the presi-
dent has gone about the nation
for four years claiming he was
trying to save Social Security
and Medicare, but in reality he
has been aiding and abetting
criminals who have violated
our border and is now planning
to give amnesty to those same
15 million plus illegals, which
will draw millions more ille-
gals from all over the world, an
unending cycle of illegals.
There is no way our social
programs, designed to stabilize
our economy, can withstand the
many millions and no end in
sight to the many more millions
yet to come.
The end product is the
destruction of the American
government as we know it.
A government without bor-
ders or a sound immigration
policy can long endure.
The unending amnesty pro-
grams "Example of just one
Trust Fund."
Social Security, which cov-
ers you from the cradle to the
grave.
If 15 million illegals are
given amnesty and an assumed
family of five, which is very
conservative, then 15 million
times five, turns out to be 75
million new people put on the
rolls of Social Security.
This shows that no Trust
Fund in America can survive
these kind of numbers.
This is the very reason for
controlled immigration.
"Open borders," open to the
world, can and will destroy our
form of government.
I would hope that those
already on Social Security for
their primary living wage and

Bible against

open borders
Editor:
Senator Hillary Clinton (D-
NY) used the Bible story of
The Good Samaritan to justify
an invasion of a horde of illegal
aliens. Sen. Clinton is opposed
to a House bill that subjects
illegal aliens and those who
hire them to criminal penalties.
She said, "It is certainly not in
keeping with my understanding
of the Scriptures, because this
bill would literally criminalize
the Good Samaritan and proba-
bly Jesus Himself."
If Sen. Clinton had read the
Bible, she would know the
Good Samaritan story was
about a man willing to stop and
help a man who had been beat-
en and left for dead after a
priest and a Levite had walked
by the dying man and refused
to help. This has nothing to do
with illegal immigration.
If Clinton had read Nahum
chapter 3, she would have
learned that Prophet Nahum
warned Israel that their stub-
bornness and disobedience to
God was shown by the fact that
"the gates (borders, ports of
entry) of thy land shall be set
wide open unto thine enemies;
the fire shall devour thy bars."
(Nahum 3:13) Nahum showed
that open gates or borders,
which allow enemies easy
access to a nation, is a great
threat to that nation.
Moses said to the children of
Israel, "Thou shalt not remove
thy neighbor's landmark."
(Deuteronomy 19:14)
Moses further declared,
"Cursed be he that removeth
his neighbor's landmark."
(Deuteronomy 27:17).
("Landmark" refers to
boundary or border).
Moses also said "When the
Most High divided to the
nations their inheritance, when
he separated the sons of Adam,
he set the bounds of the peo-


ple." In (Deuteronomy 32:8) all
nations of men for to dwell' on
all the face of the earth and hath
determined the times before
appointed and the bounds (bor-
ders) of their habitation." (Acts
17:26) That God has separated
nations and expects them to
function independently of other
nations is also seen in the New
Testament (Acts 17:26). When
you lose your:national borders,
you lose your country.
We are told to be compas-
sionate to "strangers" (Deu-
teronomyi 10:19; Exodus
22:21). The United States has
been more compassionate and
tolerant of non-citizens than
any other nation.
Our leaders in both parties
want to reward law-breakers by
putting them on a fast track to
citizenship ahead of those that
follow the rules. We are told
there are, more than 12 million
illegals living in the United
States. Consider the following:
Three-fourths of population
increase are illegal aliens.
The Justice Department says
that 29 percent of our federal
prisoners are illegal aliens.
Congress reports that illegal
aliens cost state and local gov-
ernments $13 billion per year.
America is a nation of law.
Our supreme law is the United
States Constitution. Under the
constitution, a foreigner is not
allowed to even be in the coun-
try without our permission.
There is nothing in our laws,
that allows for illegal immigra-
tion! An illegal alien has no
"right" to citizenship or to live
here or to be here.
Illegal aliens disregard our
laws and burden our local and
state governments. They also
slap the face of those many
thousands of honest people
who obey the laws and are not
trying to create another
Philippines, Japan, South
Korea, China or England, here
in America. They simply want
to be an American.
We are being asked by our
leaders to ignore our laws and
compromise our security and
let millions of lawless people
invade our country! Watch
closely how your elected repre-
sentative vote. This invasion
could not happen without the
consent of our elected leaders.
Forget what they say, watch
what they do.

America is a

melting pot
Editor:
America is the melting pot
of this world and I pray it will
continue to be so. I do wonder
though, if folks really know
what that means. Put many dif-
ferent things into a pot and stir
it up real good and then pour it
out.
My father was a naturalized
citizen and in his later years, I
asked him why us kids were
never taught Italian. I will
never forget his answer. He
said he came here to be an
American, to speak American
and act like an American.
Not bad, considering his
schooling stopped after fifth
grade. His philosophy was very
simple. If you are going to be a
ditch digger, then be the best
ditch digger the boss has.
I have seen this man wade
through snow nearly waist deep
to get to work, and he always
walked to and from his place of
work everyday. He did this for
45 years supporting his family.
We were taught to be proud
of our heritage but always
remember, you are American.
I served 20 years in the
Army protecting the Constitu-
tion and rights of all
Americans. I do not remember
any place in the oath I took that
I must also protect illegal
immigrants. If you want to live
in this country, then 'enter it
legally, speak English and
become an American. This
country will never be defeated
by an outside source. We can be
defeated from within by those
people we vote into power. All
we need do to correct this is go
on line, use the phone, pick up
a pen, contact our representa-
tives, let them know what we
want and we want it now.
I do believe we would get
most of what we want, and
while you are at it tell them we
would not have a free society
were it not for veterans, so take
care of them.
Churchill said it best.
"Never have so few done so
much for so many" or some-
thing like that. It's still a great
country and the best one to live
in, but don't sneak in and
demand. You may get more
than you bargain for. God
Bless America.

Wake u j before
country is lost


Editor:
For some time, I have been
reading all the letters to this
paper, waiting for the light to
come on. No one has got it yet.
What if every country, who
has come to our shores, make
these same demands? How
many languages will our teach-
ers need to learn? This is the
United States of America, one
people, one language, one
national anthem.
When immigrants come to
America it is for a better life, to
fit in, to become American. We
learn English, we learn the
laws, we pull our own weight,
we support our local business.
Show me anywhere in America
where all the different lan-
guages are posted in stores, but
yet go to Wal-Mart; they have
Spanish posted all over, so
where is the German, Russian,
Mideast, where is the Eastern?
Enough, send the Mexicans
all home, we don't need them.
No country has the right to
come here and demand that we
change everything .utii1d for
them. They're guests here. It's
about time we remind them of
that.
And as far as who is going to
pick the fruit, they come here,
they pick a little fruit, then they
move on to your or my job.
Grove owners can get a
machine that shakes the fruit
from the trees; I saw this on tel-
evision.
Any affordable housing for
our low income families are
gone because the landlords are
now renting them out to immi-
grants by the truckloads. Where
they used to get $250 a month,


~ )~.r r


they now get $2,000 because
they rent by the person.
If their country is so great,
why are they coming here? We
need to wake up before we
have no country to wake up in.
We, all of us, need to write our
senators, governors and even
our president and let them
know how we feel about being
blackmailed by immigrants.
Don't hire any of them, don't
shop in their businesses. Who
needs who?
This is America. I don't care
what country we all came from
to get here, we are now all
Americans, this is not Mexico.
They have ruined their own
country, now they're here to
bring ours down also. How,
long do you think Mexico
would put up with us acting, in
Mexico, like the Mexicans are
acting here with us? It would
never happen folks, so why are
we letting it go on here?
Start writing, if we have to
start the election of new gov-
ernment, that will protect our
shores from invasion of a
neighboring country.

The Sounds of Sebring
Barbershop Quartet and The
Sebring High School Show
Choir.
The three groups donated
their vocal efforts and the
church facilities were provided
at no charge. The Sebring High
School Choir featured several
outstanding solo vocalists and a
teen barbershop quartet. A
Party of Four, closed the
evening's festivities.
One only has to watch the
faces of these performers to
realize that they really do enjoy
what they are doing. Judging
by the applause the audience
showered on these groups they
really felt well entertained. And
the more the applause the
broader the smiles became. It
was a truly entertaining two
hours.
I would recommend very
strongly that local residents
avail themselves of any oppor-
tunity to watch and hear any of
these local groups perform.
Rest assured you will not be
disappointed.
Thanks to everyone connect-
ed with this fund-raising effort.
It was a success by every meas-
ure. The venue, the performers
and the audience made the First
Annual Spring Fling a very
enjoyable success.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
May 8, 1996: Lefty Keith
Haywood pitched a ten-
strikeout two-hitter as
Avon Park Feed knocked
off Ronald Sevigny in Dixie
Youth Majors play. It was
Sevigny's first loss of the
season and would tie the/
two teams with identical 4-
1 records. Five years later,
Haywood would collect the
win for the Avon Park High
School team in the regional
semifinal game.

20 Years Ago
May 7, 1986: The Red
Devils' hopes of getting to
the final four and winning a
state championship were
dashed when Tampa
Catholic upset Avon Park
3-2 in the regionals.
Ranked second in the state
and with undefeated strike-
out ace Thomas Gordon on
the mound, coach Ronnie
Jackson fully expected his
team to move on. The Red
Devils' 30 wins that season
would tie a school record.
It was Gordon's last start
wearing the Avon Park red
and white.

Lake Placid coach Dan

"That was the whole plan,"

A tearful goodbye


SFCC's season ends with two losses at state


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
KISSIMMEE The tears
coming-out of Leslie Brewer's
eyes Friday night didn't match
the words coming out of her
mouth.
.The reason for the tears was
the South Florida Community
College Lady Panthers' two-
game exit from the FCCAA
state tournament at the Osceola
County Softball Complex. That
meant the 3-1 loss to Gulf Coast
and the 2-0, extra-inning loss to
Tallahassee were the last two
games that Brewer coach
Carlos Falla's first signee after
the softball program was estab-
lished in 2003 would play as
a Panther.
But Brewer was upbeat, even
if she didn't look the part thanks
to her overflowing tear ducts.
"I'm not disappointed
because I know everyone did
i. e thing they could to get to
that next step and everyone
gave it their all," she said.
"Next year, I know they're
going to do even better."
Considering where they
ended just their second season
of play,-Brewer and the rest of


the Panthers had a reason to be
proud. The fledgling program's
first appearance at the state
tournament resulted in an early
end, but had two games where
SFCC could have come out on
top with a couple of breaks.
The outfield error that
allowed Tallahassee score what
Gf Coast proved to be the
Guf Coast winning run in
-- the eighth inning
of the second
SFCC game was the
only one the
Panthers made
and, with the
"" exception of two
pitches that Gulf
Coast's Blythe
SFCC Golden' and
Debby Conner hit
for solo homers
three innings
apart to break a 1-1 tie in the
first game, Christina Morrow
was her usual solid self while
pitching the distance in both
contests.
Only the offense the stick-
ing point all season for the
Panthers seemed a little
overwhelmed, getting just two
hits against Gulf Coast's Stacie


David in the opener and four
hits against Tallahassee's
Brittani Phillips in the nightcap.
SFCC left four runners in
scoring position against
Tallahassee and in one night-
mare stretch had runners
thrown out, at home, third and
second in the third inning.
"We had two games we could
have won and we let them both
get away," Falla said. "We left
people in scoring position in
three or four different innings
and just didn't execute. We
were slow with the bats. We
didn't swing them well, we did-
n't approach stuff well.
"But it's a learning experi-
ence and that's what we're
going to chalk it up to. We had
a lot of nervous people out there
today."
Falla said one reason for the
offensive struggles was likely
the month-long layoff the
Panthers had between the end
of the regular season and the
state tournament.
"That was my fault, bad
scheduling," he said, adding
that he will stretch the season
out next year to avoid making
the same mistake.

Now those
Lake Placid sights are set for
S the more distant
future as the
Dragons returned
to earth with a crushing 11-0

hand at Sebring at all. Our

Two elements of street-

in Dyson Racing's favor.
The new car is built to new
LMP1 regulations and at
900 kilograms is more than
100 kilograms heavier than
the Lola EX257s the team

FAN
Continued from 1E
booming voice that is capable
of being heard in all parts of the
field.
At 55, Woodham has been a
fan of Avon Park sports since he
can remember. He played Little
League baseball when he was a
young boy and junior varsity
baseball in high school.
Woodham has been attending
a variety of sports events
including Dixie baseball, foot-
ball, soccer, college baseball
and even softball games.
He's also not afraid to lend a
hand, serving on the field
preparation crew at many a
summer baseball tournament
over the years.
"I mainly go to meet people,
talk to friends, and get to know
new people who come to Avon
Park from other states," he said.
Woodham said that his dad
used to watch games as well
and that there is a sign in his
father's honor on the wall at
Charles R. Head Field where
the high school baseball team
plays.


'I might holler at
a kid on the
field, but I don't
disrespect any
child, either on
or off the field.',
DAN "THE FAN" WOOHAM

Over the years, he has
encouraged kids to do their best
at whatever sport they are play-
ing and said that probably at
least eight of the boys he's fol-
lowed have made it to a profes-
sional level.
"Seeing boys make it to the
pros makes me feel good
because I know they stuck with
what they wanted to do and be,"
he said. "They didn't' waiver
and they succeeded."
The most important advice
he would give to youngsters
wanting to make a. career of
their sport is to "treat other
players the way you want to be


treated, play fair, practice hard
every day, and stay in shape."
He also believes that athletes
should let their competitiveness
be kept on the field.
Although the tit-for-tat rival-
ry between Avon Park and
Sebring high school's teams has
been ongoing, and some of the
off-field activities can be con-
sidered harmless, Woodham
believes that the "kids should
let their action be shown on the
field," 'not by vandalizing the
opposing team's field by paint-
ing advertisement signs,
dugouts, or other property.
"Doing that just fires up the
other team even more," he said.
Though Woodham is a die-
hard fan of Avon Park, he want-
ed to make it clear that there's
not a kid or a town Avon Park
faces that he doesn't respect.
"I might holler at a kid on the
field, but I don't disrespect any
child, either on or off the field,"
he said.
Woodham said he'll continue
to be at all the games he can
until he dies or can't get there.
"And I'm gonna live to be
100," he laughed.

weight. It certainly helps to be
running at 900 kilograms
because that's the weight
around which the car was
designed."
The current Lola also has a
much more powerful engine
than previous. But there have
been "some hiccups along the
way, most notably cooling
issues at Sebring. But Smith
says that was sorted out at Road
Atlanta just a couple of weeks
after the 12 Hours.
"As the engine would get
hotter, we would lose power,"


Smith explained. "Part of that is
the location of the air coolers on
the car. We know what the
problem is, and we've been
working in the wind tunnel and
on the dyn'o to i\ them."
Should Dyson Racing claim
an overall win at Houston, it
will do so against some familiar
faces. The Audi R8, with 47
Series wins since 2000, will
race in the next three ALMS
rounds before giving way to the
diesel-powered R10 TDI,
which won at Sebring. Dyson's
James Weaver and Butch
Leitzinger beat the R8 twice
last year. In addition, Autocon
Motorsports is fielding the
same Lola that Chris Dyson and
Andy Wallace ran last year. .
Smith also is wary of a cou-
ple of P2. entries: Penske
Racing's two Porsche RS
Spyders and the Intersport


Racing Lola B05/40-AER,
which won in class at Sebring.
"The American Le Mans
Series is fantastic because
you're always racing in mixed
company," Dyson said.
"There's always action on the
track. On a street course, the
closing rates on the slower cars
are magnified because of the
tight confines. Overtaking is
undoubtedly going to be diffi-
cult in Houston, but that's why
the race should be such a good
show. The organizers have done
a terrific job putting this event
together. They're experienced
and .they have listened to the
drivers' input, so I think it
should be a nice event for us."
The Lone Star Grand Prix is
scheduled for 8 p.m. CDT on
Friday in Houston. It will be
broadcast at 1 p.m. May 13
EDT on CBS Sports.

SFCC right fielder Leslie Brewer makes, a catch as second baseman
Samantha Waldron gets out of the way Friday against Gulf Coast.


SFCC
Continued from 1E
ues to rise on the curve it'- been
on the last two seasons, they
definitely will be back at, state
very soon, and Falla said most
of that rapid improvement
should be credited to the origi-
nal Panthers.
"My sophomores Megan
Monnier, Cassie Green,
Courtney Wallace, Kyndal
Tyler, Christina Morrow, Leslie
Brewer all of. those kids
have been wonderful," he said.
"It's, been a pleasure to have
them on this team and for them
to stick with us' for' the two


years and get us where we are.
"Without them, we wouldn't
have gotten here this year."
Through her tears, Brewer
said she couldn't have asked for
a better place to spend her past
two seasons.
"The friendships I've made
over the last two years, I know
we'll stick together and I know
I'll talk to them. They're all my
best friends. I have a team full
of best friends.
"I'm so glad I was the first
Panther," she said. "There's
nothing I would change about
my two years here."
Except for maybe the fact
that it had to end so soon.

DRAGONS
Continued from 1E
late) poor defense from Lake
Placid, and the Crusaders built
an 8-0 lead.
"I think, probably the nerves
got to us finally," said coach
Coomes: "We looked a little
stiff and our reactions were a
little ugly."
The Dragons had very little
offense to speak of, although
Levine finished his high-school
career with a 3-for-3 night at
*the plate, his final hit being a
.double he tried to stretch into a
:triple. Embodying the 2006
-Green Dragons' spirit, Levine
,looked to overachieve, only to
,be gunned down at third.

Now with a successful sea-
son in the books, the Lake
Placid Green Dragons look to
remove the "over" off of
"achieve" and develop a tradi-
tion where winning is expected
and goals become a bit loftier.
"Maybe we've gotten some-


thing started here. Sometimes
you just need to get past that
barrier," said Coomes.
"Maybe some kids around
here that should be playing
baseball will see this and say
'they're doing some good
things.'
