SEBRING Lake
Josephine has an additional 120
acres of shallow water shore
habitat but not all its residents
can freely enjoy, yet.
A six-month drought and the
completion of a six-month proj-
ect on the lake south of Sebring
came together to leave more
than 30 residents of the
Buttonwood Bay mobile home.
community high and dry.
"We're looking for solu-
tions," said Beacham Furse, an
aquatic resource manager for
the Florida Department of Fish
and Wildlife Conservation.
Furse managed the program
that began in November and
was completed mid-May to
enhance the shallow water
shore habitat by drawing down
invasive weeds.
Lake Josephine comprises
three basins east, center and
west.
Temporary dams were erect-
ed, allowing Furse's crews to
drain the center basin. When the
eradication project there was
completed, he drained the west
basin into the center.
The final dam between the
west and center basins was
removed Tuesday, causing the
water to retreat from its banks
in, the east basin on which
Buttonwood Bay is situated.
"The motors are in the muck,
they're going to be damaged,"


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Dale Hertweck discusses the low level of Jackson Creek Canal on Friday as Jim Duncan looks at the
boats left high and dry when a dam was removed on Lake Josephine. The men live in Buttonwood Bay,
where the residents say they weren't duly notified of the action that would cause the canal to shrink.


said Jan Jones, president of the
Buttonwood Bay Homeowners
Association, as she and other
residents of the community
convoyed in their golf carts
along Jackson Creek Canal.
The canal also receded from
its banks following Tuesday's
removal of the west basin dam,
draining at an estimated rate of
one-inch per hour.
Buttonwood residents want


to know why they weren't noti-
fied about the specific date so
that they could have moved
their boats (of the 31 stuck pier-
side in mud or inches-deep
water most are pontoon boats)
to the community's storage site
or to another lake.
"We've not found anybody
here that was notified," Jones
said, acknowledging that her
association and the Lake


Josephine Association (of
which Buttonwood is a mem-
ber) knew from public hearings
that the project was scheduled
for completion about mid-May.
"We don't know how long it's
going to be until the boats float
back up."
Furse said the public meet-
ings began in 2000 and includ-
ed the various communities that
might be affected, including

Troopers investigate a fatal single-vehicle accident Friday at State Road 17A and Oak Park Avenue, where 16-year-old Cristal
Eugenio, of Avon Park, was ejected from the Cadillac Escalade. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Eugenio was
wearing her seat belt and the driver, Everado Hernandez Cruz, 23, of Avon Park, wasn't.



Avon Park teen dies in accident


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Whi le Avon Park High School seniors
were celebrating the beginning of their lives after graduation
Friday night, se eral mourned the loss of a fellow student
who died in a vehicle accident earlier that day.
Cristal Eugenio. 16, ofA\%on Park. died Friday afternoon
after a single-vehicle accident tossed her from a 1999
Cadillac Escalade. Eugemo. \\lho reside, at 1200 W. Kersey
St., \\;as pronounced dead on arrival at Highl.ind Regionall
Medical Center in Sebring, according to Florida Hight\a%
Patrol Cpl. G. A Freiinutih report.
Eugenio jlst finished her freshman year at Avon Park
High School. She was a member of the Avon Park High
School Chorus.
The accident occurred about 1:30 p.m. at SLate Road 17A
about one-tenth of a mile west of Oak Park Avenue.
"I saw the man cradling the woman's head in his arms,"
Bob Chapman, of Sebring, said.
Chapman was westbound on S.R. 17A when he saw the
eastbound maroon sport utility vehicle veering into his lane.
"They looked up and seen me and did a sharp correction


to the right," Chapman said, speculating that the driver
Everado Hernandez Cruz, 23, of Avon Park, was reaching
down to change the radio station or CD. "They vere not
speeding." -i
Cruz's vehicle went through the yard
at 116 S.R. 17A, collided with a chain
link fence and rolled over into Jose
Martinez's backyard at 1659 N. Oak Park
Ave.
"She was up against the house w hen I
got to them." Chapman said pointing to
an area %%here the dirt had been disturbed
and a pair of women's white high-top

lay.
Cruz was flown to Tampa General
Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition as of
Saturday.
The FHP report indicates that Eugenio was wearing her
seat belt, but Cruz was not.
According to Freimuth's report, charges are pending the
outcome of the investigation.


meetings specifically for
Buttonwood residents.
He said the drought has
caused Josephine to be six td
eight inches lower than normal.
"It went down another foot as
we predicted it would," Furse
said, explaining that this projec-
tion was relayed to the commu-
nity. "That affects everybody on
the lake."
But, according to Bill Jones,
residents outside Buttonwood
seem to have received the spell

absent from their respectivJ
docks. I
In hindsight, Furse said he
could have been more proact e
in getting the word out.
"We should have gone house
to house," he said. "Maybe
that's just something we failed
to do."
Furse is working with Clell

ist for Highlands County, tc

Ford was out of town Frida
and couldn't be reached fo,
comment. A message was lefj
with his office.,
"We planned the project so
that it would end at the begin1
ning of the rainy season," Fursd
said. "But that just didn't hap<

Winding Waters

one possible

concern
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING If Highlands
County is losing wetlands to
development without proper
mitigation, a local advisory
board wants to know.
If so, they want to know why.
With so much development
going up in Highlands County
in recent months, and more
requests for land-use and zon-
ing changes, members of the
Natural Resources Advisory
Commission want to be sure the
county is working to preserve
scrub and wetland habitat.
At Wednesday's meeting, Dr.
Reed Bowman, biologist, said
the county should consider
making people mitigate for
clearing land with habitat of the
type used by listed species,
even if such species are not on
site.
Co-chairman Mike Sawyer
agreed. but commission mem-
bers were divided on whether a
person should clear when listed
Species .are not present. A local
ordinance, they said, could
help, as long as people obey it.


Still, they voted to ask coun-
ty commissioners to amend the
ordinance to have people pro-
vide mitigation if they destroy
habitat for listed species.
In regard to wetlands, Erin
McCarta with the Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation
District noted that the county
still has natural resources objec-
tives in its comprehensive plan.
She wanted to know if the
county had mapped its wet-
lands.
Janice McCarthy, planning
staff for the advisory commis-
sion, wasn't aware of the coun-
ty having done that. Jim Polatty,
Development Services director,
said the county has usually left
enforcement up to state agen-
cies.
Kurt Olsen, environmental
consultant, said a lot of people
aren't checking with the
Department of Environmental
Protection, but instead are just
clearing their land.
Typically, a developer or
land clearer needs a permit to
go into wetlands, Olsen said.
State agents in Punta Gorda
usually don't come unless they
are called with a complaint, he
said.
Dr. Hilary Swain, biologist,
said she would like to hear from
the state how many wetland


permits they have issued in the
last two years, to see if regula-
tion is taking place.
One place of concern is the
Winding Waters property on the
south end of Arbuckle Creek
and the north bank of Lake
Istokpoga, traditionally known
for wetlands, flood plain, ham-
mocks and wildlife. The county
considered buying it for conser-
vation five years ago for
$750,000, but concerns about
the cost being significantly
more than appraisals trumped
any deal on the 152-acre prop-
erty.
At the time, County
Commissioner Edgar Stokes
noted the land had sold twice to
potential developers for more
than $1 million. Though the
original plat from SpringLake
has expired, that wouldn't stop
another developer from pur-
chasing it and re-platting it, he
said.
Apparently that's happened,
Polatty said. A developer is try-
ing to figure out how to develop
the property now.
A wetlands subcommittee
will discuss the countywide
issue 4 p.m. Wednesday, May
24, at the Highlands County
Engineering Department train-
ing room, 501 S. Commerce
Ave., Sebring.


'Miss Mickey' retiring



after years of counseling


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Fred Wild
Elementary School is losing
one its most storied characters
at the end of the school year.
For 30 years JoAnne DuBose
has been counseling children
and gro% n-tups :like.
In fact she's ben at Fred
!-Wild so long ishe's now coun-
seling the children and grand-
children of students she worked
with when she first started.
What sets her apart from
other dedicated guidance coun-
selors, however, is the lengths
she will go in connecting with
students.
As a counselor for children,
"I wondered what I could use so
that kids wouldn't be afraid to
approach me so they could
level with me and tell me what
they needed to," she said. "I've
loved Mickey since I was a lit-
tle kid, and it just seemed a nat-
ural choice."
Which is how, since about
1996 (she's been doing it so
long she's no longer quite sure
when it began), she has dressed
up as Mickey Mouse com-
plete with the ears, white gloves
and yellow, oversized feet.
Students call her Miss
Mickey, even out of costume,
and she loves it. "You could be
called a lot worse," she said
with a laugh.
Co-workers call her commit-
ted, loyal, conscientious and
caring.
"She's deeply spiritual, and
just a wonderful friend,"
Sharon Culverhouse, a data
operator who works with her,
said.
"If you're stressing, she can
calm you," Juliet Lowe added.
She is the resource teacher who
will take on some of DuBose's
responsibilities next year. "One
hundred percent, she puts oth-

JoAnne DuBose, otherwise known as Miss Mickey, has been counsel-
ing students at Fred Wild Elementary School for 30 years. She will
retire at the end of this year, to her co-workers' regret. Dubose
began dressing up as Mickey Mouse years ago in an effort to put
children at ease. Now she is known as Miss Mickey.


ers ahead of herself."
DuBose is also famous for
teaching students about the let-
ter M using Mickey and
M&Ms to bring home the les-
son.
On the subject of M&Ms
Valerie Cunningham, who
works as DuBose's right hand
("well, at least a few fingers")
said DuBose keeps candy, espe-
cially chocolate, on hand to
reward and to soothe. "And it's
the good chocolate," she said,
"not the cheap stuff."
But far more important, she
added, was Dubose's ability to
connect with the children.
"She's so positive and very
encouraging."
While everyone knows she's
earned her retirement and
knows her husband Danny and
their three "gifted kitties" -
Spunky, Kokomo and Ibony -
will love having her close, no
one really wants to see her go.
"She's fixture," Lowe said,
"and we're not coping very
well."

A trashy accident


OBITUARIES


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
There was quite a mess to be cleaned up after this semi hauling trash tried to pass a semi hauling
oranges while both were northbound on U.S. 27 Friday afternoon 4.1 miles south of State Road 70.
The trailer of the trash truck clipped the trailer of the fruit truck, causing the trash truck's trailer
to overturn and spill its contents into the median, while the fruit truck left a 100-yard trail of
oranges down the highway. The driver of the trash truck, David Araujo, of Kissimmee, was taken
to Florida Hospital Lake Placid with minor injuries, state troopers said. He was charged with care-
less driving. Phillip D. Williams, of Davenport, was not injured.



Unidentified man flies off motorcycle


News-Sun
ZOLFO SPRINGS Charges are pending
against an unidentified who was listed in critical
condition following his motorcycle crash Friday
morning, reports show.
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Larry H.
McClellan Jr. said the rider of a 1994 Kawasaki
motorcycle "was uncooperative (and) he would
not identify himself."
The man, for whom the FHP doesn't have an
age or address, wasn't wearing a helmet and was


flown to Tampa General Hospital.
McClellan said the motorcyclist was east-
bound on State Road 64 at 11:20 a.m. when he
went off the road and collided with a driveway
culvert.
The Kawasaki went airborne and the rider was
ejected.
He carried no identification, the trooper said.
By Saturday, FHP headquarters said they still
hadn't identified the man.

'Ride of Silence' pays mute testimony to cyclists' presence


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Sebring
Ride of Silence one of many
held throughout Florida, across
the United States and in six
countries was a quiet suc-
cess.
About 15 people. mostly
members of the Highlands
Pedalers, arrived at the Sebring
Civic Center for the informal
10-mile ride around Lake
Jackson to memorialize fallen
cyclists and raise awareness
among motorists that public
roadways are to be shared.
"Aren't there any ladies?"
asked Doris McGill, of Sebring,
as she approached the spandex
and Lycra-clad cyclists on their
high-dollar carbon-this-and-that
bicycles.
Wearing a straw bonnet, flo-
ral print blouse, slacks and san-
dals, McGill provided a stark
contrast to the rest of the group.
She needed help retrieving
her vintage fold-away bike
from the back seat of her com-
pact car, into which she wres-
tiled the unfolded bike by her-
self.
"I'm recently widowed,"
McGill said, explaining that she
learned of the ride from a News-
Sun article. "I needed to get out
of the house."
The Ride of Silence was
atypical for the club riders -
the maximum speed was 12
mph and no talking was
allowed, adding a solemn
touch.
It began in 2003 when a
Dallas man orchestrated a ride
to honor a friend who had died


maintained McGill's 5-1/2 mph
pace.
"I've been meaning to do that
with somebody," the 74-year-
old rider said, explaining that
she wanted to complete a lap
around Lake Jackson. "And
your article said that it would
wait for the slowest person.
That would be me. I like to ride
a cycle better than walking."
However, at McGill's pace
there was concern that the
group which rode on the
street as much as safety would
permit wouldn't complete
the trip around the lake before
sunset.
Having ridden 2-1/2 miles,
McGill turned around on the
U.S. 27 North sidewalk across
the highway from the News-Sun
office. Laura Maibauer, a regis-
tered and licensed dietitian with
Highlands Regional Medical
Center, rode back with McGill.
"They were pretty nice,"
McGill said, dismissing any
notion that she might have been
"intimidated" by the fancy
clothes and fast bikes of the
other riders. "One guy even
said, 'I spent all this money on
my bike and I didn't even get a
bell.'"


"beautiful flowers and such"
that they encountered.
"I was surprised to see my
next door neighbor," McGill
said, referring to Maibauer.
"She plays ball with her dog in
the yard when she gets home."
Neither was aware that the
other shared an interest in rid-
ing bicycles.
"Laura was nice," McGill
said.
Having dropped her neighbor
off at the Sebring Civic Center,
Maibauer continued counter-
clockwise along Lakeview
Drive, until she encountered the
original group, joining them for
what little remained of the ride.
As the riders hung out in the
parking lot, impressed by
McGill's effort and accomplish-
ment, she drove up from the
beach, waving out her window
as she drove home.
She did some yard work
before retiring for the evening,
McGill said, explaining that
though she may have been
slower than the rest, she's no
less capable.


She and her husband used to
ride together but it's been years
since she last rode five miles in
one shot, not since her children
were young.
Woody McGill died just shy
of their 57th wedding anniver-
sary and before their son gradu-
ates from high school in a few
weeks.
Terrill Morris, of Morris
Funeral Chapel and a past pres-
ident of the Highlands Pedalers,
invited McGill to attend the
club's meeting at 7 p.m. on the
first Thursday every month at
the Kenilworth Lodge.
Morris also handled the
memorial service for her hus-
band Woodrow "Woody"
McGill, who died in March.
While difficult to gauge what
effect, if any, the ride had on the
community, it was obvious that
the silent riders were seen.
Most motorists gave the large
pack ample breathing room
when passing and cheers out-
numbered jeers by those who
felt it necessary to honk, wave,
flash their high-beams, or yell.


Doris M. McGill, of Sebring, rings her bicycle bell Wednesday
evening at the behest of her new fan club the Highlands Pedalers
Bicycle Club. Where spandex and Lycra were the apparel of choice
for most riders, McGill chose instead to wear a bonnet, floral print
top, slacks and sandals for the 10-mile trip around Lake Jackson
during the first Ride of Silence held in Sebring to honor fallen
cyclists and raise awareness that cars and bikes share the road.

while riding, struck by a bus' standard time for Rides of

Thor Log: Exchanged boots for shoes


Each week, the News-Sun
will reprint a hiking log by Thor
Knutson, hiking the Pacific
Crest Trail from Mexico to
Canada.
Tuesday, May 9
Feels good to sleep in in a
real bed. Had to take the bus to
town or walk 1.5 miles to the
post office. No walking today'.
Had to pick up my shoes at
the post office; Stupped boob
home. Won't need them until
mid-June. ,
Found a library; checked my
Web site. John Roy has done a
great job.
Bought supplies before I ate.
Hope all will fit in my bag. Got
a roast chicken for dinner. Ate
the whole thing. Meat sure
tastes good after all those dried
noodles.
Wednesday, May 10
Five hikers staying at the
motel. Discovered we could
hire a van to take us back to the
trail for $3 each.
Everyone had things to do
but me, so I went to breakfast,
then back to the room for a nap
while waiting for the others. We
arrived at the trail about noon.
Trail seems to be leveling
out: Not so many steep grades.
Hiked 10 miles. Camped with
five from motel and two people
from Germany.
Thursday, May 11
Still have over a mile to go
before I stop. Will be a 23-mile
day.
Trail still good: A few steep
climbs and down hills. Most of
the afternoon was through
burned-out areas, perhaps a
couple of years old.
Blisters feel much better with
shoes instead of boots. Pack is
heavy with all the food I
bought.
Weather's nice. Looks as if
all of us will camp together
again tonight.
Friday, May 12
Started hiking at 6:30 a.m.,
following creek about 250 feet


below.
At 11:30, I found a hot
spring. Took shoes off, soaked,
and swam about three hours.
Barns, Andy, Crispy (man) and
Janitor (woman) made it to
springs and wanted to stay. I
was ready to move on.
Hiked until 10:30 p.m. a
28-mile day. At 2:30 a.m., I
heard the others: Had decided
to6" lke under full moon a.nd
sleep during the day.
I was off the trail far enough
they couldn't see me. Gave
them a scare by making an ani-
mal noise. They decided to hike
a few more miles.
Saturday, May 13
Had a hard time getting back
to sleep laughing their reaction
to me scaring them. They kept
going to a park about two miles
past my camp.
Feet sore today with blisters


as large as two quarters.
Couldn't get any speed, only 2
mph. Reached Interstate 15: A
McDonald's, gas station, and
Best Western. Had three burg-
ers, fries and many Cokes.
Get a room to rest my feet.
Surprised to see Crispy and
Janitor already there: Got a ride
from the park. Knew they had-
n't passed me.
Crispy's shoes and feet were
torn up from the nighttime 30-
mile hike. He's waiting for a
shoe shipment before hiking
again.
Rocks here are sharp and dig
into shoes and clothes. Have
holes in the seat of my pants.
Can order smaller size: These
are getting too big.
Sunday, May 14
Bams came to the motel
about 8 p.m. last night. Today, I
left everyone there for lunch at

Mahoney visits district with




veteran Sen. Max Cleland


Hears veterans'

concerns in

Sebring
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Tim Mahoney
wants local residents to know
issues in the rural part of
Congressional District 12 will
get heard.
That's if they help him defeat
incumbent U.S. Representative
Mark Foley.
Wednesday, he and former
U.S. Senator Max Cleland of
Georgia stopped in Sebring at
Sandy's Circle Cafe and
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post
4300.
Cleland, 63, a disabled
Vietnam War U.S. Army veter-
an and Democrat, said
Washington, D.C., has one
party in charge of the White
House, Congress, and the
courts.
Quoting Gen. George C.
Patton, Cleland said, "If every-
body is thinking the same thing,
somebody isn't thinking."
Whether all Republicans or
all Democrats, it undercuts the
balance of power, he said.
"If we can change 15 seats in
America, we can take back the
U.S. House," he said.
Mahoney said the current
Congress has forgotten working
Americans whose "kitchen
economy" is not doing very
well. Floridians have $1,000
less in income, 650,000 of them
have no health insurance or pay
53 percent more, thanks to the
current administration, he said.
Military
Mahoney said his father-in-
law, at 19 years old, helped
clear the beaches at Normandy
and his father was in the U.S.
Army Air Corps.
Mahoney told the crowd at

PHIL ATTINGER/News-Sun
Former Senator Maxwell Cleland (center) of Georgia greets supporters of Tim Mahoney (standing,
right) at a breakfast gathering Wednesday at Sandy's Circle Cafe in Sebring. A disabled Vietnam veter-
an, Cleland supports Mahoney in his bid for District 12 against incumbent Representative Mark Foley.
Also on hand were (from left) George Bennett, staff writer with the 'Palm Beach Post'; Zane Thomas,
preparing to run for Florida District 77 against State Representative Denise Grimsley; and Patrick
Hogan, chairman of the Democratic Executive Committee of Highlands County.


the VFW post that soldiers in
Iraq and Afghanistan are as
good as any American veteran.
"I am not soft on defense,"
Mahoney said. "I will make
sure they have absolutely all
they need."
Cleland added that the cur-
rent military policy has under-
mined domestic security. The
U.S. National Guard should
have been reinforced New
Orleans, he said, not been sent
overseas.
Immigration
Mahoney said it pained him
to see illegal immigration paint-
ed as a Mexican issue, when it's
really about border security.
Rather than turn 11-20 million
undocumented workers into
felons, Mahoney wants guest
worker programs where immi-


grants learn English and line up
behind others for citizenship.
Cleland also favors border
controls, because the 9/11 ter-
rorists, he said, came in through
Canada.

Tax cuts
Mahoney calls tax cuts a
"false choice."
America, he said, has enough
funds to solve its problems, if it
lives within its means.
However, he doesn't support
cutting programs like veterans'
benefits, foster care, or kids"
breakfast programs, but would
like to do away with "earmark"
programs, otherwise called
"pork projects."
Last year, they totaled $29
billion, he said; this year, $26
billion.

Church/State
America's culture of -reli-
gious tolerance is based on a
common belief in a higher
power over all people,
Mahoney said. He wants a strict
separation between church and
state.
The only people he trusts to
teach his daughter to pray are
his wife and his minister.

Privacy
There is a true war on terror,
Mahoney said. One man from
Westin was killed by a bomber
in Israel. An easy solution is to
take liberty in the name of secu-
rity, he said, but it's wrong.
"I will find ways to improve
security without taking liberty,"
Mahoney said.

will be breaking ground at 2
p.m. Wednesday, at 600 W.
College Drive.
The ceremony celebrates the
coming Health and Science
Education Center, which is
scheduled to open in the fall of
2007. Construction should


begin in July.
The two-story building, con-
taining over 51,000 square feet
of classrooms and laboratories
will cost about $10.9 million. It
will be one of the largest build-
ings on campus, sitting on Lake
Glenada's shore by the Dental
Education Center.
Ninety-five parking spots
will be added to accommodate
the extra traffic.


The building, which has been
years in the planning, will be
home to an expanded nursing
program and a new two-year
radiological technician course.
The college plans on dou-
bling the number of nursing
graduates.
General biology, micro-biol-
ogy, anatomy, general chem-

of the eight science labs.
Dr. Norman Stephens, presi-
dent of the college, said that
SFCC is one of four colleges
that joined in a consortium to
construct the new building.
By sharing information and
using the same design and con-
struction techniques, all of the
colleges have saved on the cost.
At the same time, by using local
construction companies, each
school keeps its autonomy.
Matthews Construction will
manage the construction in
Highlands County.
"We worked well together,"
Stephens said of the consor-
tium, "and it made all the dif-
ference."
Once the new building is in
place, the college will remodel
the old space to create a larger
boardroom and more adminis-
tration offices. The goal is to
create greater efficiency by
bringing administrators into
closer contract with each other.

Crist launches investigation


into phony phone charges


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE -
Attorney General Charlie Crist
announced Thursday that his
office has launched an investi-
gation into five telephone com-
panies for placing unauthorized
charges on consumers' bills.
Charges for an Internet shop-
ping service have appeared on
phone bills sent to BellSouth,
Sprint, Verizon, 'AT&T and
SBC Communications cus-
tomers, triggering the investiga-
tion into what might be a case
of "cramming." Cramming is a
practice that bills for extra serv-
ices without the customer's
knowledge.
Crist's Economic Crimes
Di vision began the imestigia-
tion last \eek after the


Tallahassee Democrat detailed
the charges that several Sprint
customers found on their bills.
The $12.95 charges are for a
service called Email Discount
Network, which supposedly
offers members a discount for
Internet shopping done through
the company's Web site.
Further investigation revealed
that BellSouth, AT&T, SBC
Communications and Verizon
customers also found the unau-
thorized charges on their bills.
According to Florida Statutes
Ch. 364.604, phone companies
are responsible for third-party
billers who place charges on the
phone bills.
"These secret charges were
placed on bills in hopes that no
one would notice," said Crist.


"In this case, someone did
notice and we will investigate
fully to make sure Florida cus-
tomers are not forced to pay for
services they did not order and
do not want."
According to the Southeast
Florida Better Business Bureau,
a number of complaints have
been filed against the
Plantation-based Email
Discount Network as well as
VoiceMail, a company that
shares Email Discount's mail-
ing address and employs simi-
lar billing practices. Crist
encouraged any consumers who
believe they have similarly
inaccurate charges on their
phone bills to call his Fraud
Hotline at 1-8669-NO'-SCAM
(1-866-966-7226.)

Jessiman
The Artist of the Month at

of images with a subject matter mi
of flowers and butterflies. She

photographing weddings,
where she says, "I can always
find a flower or two with the
bride being the prettiest bloom
of all!"

interested in the digital aspect,
so she combined the element of
catching just the right shot with
,digital technology, creating a
masterful piece of art. Some of
her work depicts the romantic,
feminine side of nature, and a
flair of ambiance, an expres-
sion of cybernetic romance.
This month Jessiman was
also awarded the 2006

nomination in the category of
Abstract at a prestigious live
online awards ceremony recog-
nizing excellence in color pho-
tography.

TU i- F

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Cooking is

not for sissies
Call me a male chauvinist.
Until this week when I thought
of kitchen work I thought
women's work and easy.
I mean how hard could
cooking be for heaven's sake?
I do it at home all the time and
it's no big deal.
Open the jar of peanut but-
ter and spread the jelly. If I'm
feeling in a gourmet sort of
mood, I even toast the bread.
So I thought, you know, I'd
be working indoors and using
tools like slotted spoons and
quilted oven mitts. It would be
like a day off.
I don't suppose I'll amaze
many of you when I say I was
humbled in the Fred Wild
Elementary School kitchen on
Monday, but you can color me
surprised.
Turns out cooking for 800
people is an ordeal not for the
faint of heart. In fact, it was as
exhausting as roofing.
And it wasn't just because
the pots and pans are big, and
therefore heavy and hard to lift
when full although they
are.
Or because there is a monu-
mental amount of cleaning to
do that involves scrubbing and
mopping although there is.
No it was all that and much
more.
The fact is, there is no rest

Hard


work


brings


benefits

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Being part of
a food service team is extreme-
ly rewarding.
But be prepared to work
hard, because it is physical and
goes on non-stop. It is not a
job for the lazy or the slow.
Sound basic arithmetic skills
are a must, because there is a
lot adding, subtracting, multi-
plying and dividing.
And of course, a love and
understanding of children is a
must.
The work load comes from
the large number of people
served.
"With about 750 lunches and
up to 375 breakfasts, we're
busy," Anna Woodham said.
She is the food service man-
ager at Fred Wild Elementary
School. This is her first year at
Fred Wild and to be a manager,
but she has worked in school
kitchens for 17 years.
It was important, she empha-
sized, that people understand
how much team work is
involved. While there are spe-
cialties, bakers for instance,
everyone has to know how to
do everything because it is crit-
ical to keep the food line mov-
ing. That means-everyone has
to work well together. If some-


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Star Rivera stirs the black-eyed peas, enough to feed 800. She started as a temporary worker, hired
through Sunshine Staffing, but has been a school board employee for seven years. Fred Wild Elementary
School in Sebring has a team of six school board employees. Two of them are hard at work by 6 a.m., the
others come in at 7 a.m. Two temporary workers come in at 9:30 a.m.. Everyone works until 1:30 or 2


thing needs to be done, then
someone has to up and do it.
Having worked together for
a year, the women are as grace-
ful as dancers, only moving at
a breakneck pace.
For example, Kathy Snyder
bakes all morning then works a
cash register as the children
come in for lunch. Sylvia
Walton will be slicing can-
taloupe one minute and count-
ing milk containers the next.
Woodham's job is the most
complicated as she has to keep
track of menus and inventory
as well as supervise food pro-
duction. She has stacks of
paperwork to do. Her work day
starts as early as 5 a.m.
Most of the women (there
are also many men en|lo1ii -d
in food service) at Fred Wild


said they were attracted to the
job because the schedule was
perfect for people with school
age children.
However, the benefit pack-
age offered even to part-time
workers is generous enough to
attract many.
A general worker I, the entry
level position, currently pays
$7.92 an hour. Any worker
under contract to work four
hours a day also earns a benefit
package that kicks the hourly
wage up to be worth $21 an
hour. That includes health
insurance, sick days and retire-
ment.
The district pays $5,836 in
health insurance for each con-
tracted food service employee
every year.
At Fred Wild the regular


crew is aided by two part-time
workers who are hired through.
private agencies. They are not'
contracted school board
employees, but-are sometimes
hired when openings occur.
That is how Walton made it to
a school board position. She
has been working in school
kitchens for 26 years.
Despite the challenges,
Woodham said, "You know
what? The ladies don't com-
plain."
Then she smiled. "My only
pet peeve is don't let me run
out of food. I try to make sure
I order enough in the begin-
ning. I don't like the words
short or run out. I always have
a back-up because I am not
going to rui out of food."

Riverside Bank customers can 'Swipe, Sign & Win'


Special to the News-Sun
FORT PIERCE Riverside
Bank has launched a campaign
promoting the use of the .debit
card "signature" option.
Choosing to sign for debit
card transactions rather than
using a Personal Identification
Number protects consumers
from "shoulder surfing," a prac-
tice in which identity thieves
look over a consumer's shoul-
der to steal access codes and
other personal information for


unauthorized debit and credit
card transactions. To encourage
customers to take advantage of
this benefit, the bank is entering
those who choose the signature
option into its "Swipe. Sign &
Win" contest. Riverside Bank
customers using their debit
cards between now and May
31, 2006, are automatically
entered into a drawing for a
2006 Ford Mustang when they
sign their receipt to complete
the transaction.


"Forty-six percent of
Americans jhink an identity
thief could steal their password
or other personal information
by shoulder surfing," said Jeff
Merwin, executive vice presi-
dent and director of retail bank-
ing for Riverside Bank. "Yet a
simple decision like choosing
the credit option and signing for
debit card purchases can stop
this kind of identity theft."
Founded in 1982, Riverside
Bank is one of Florida's largest

Lake Placid Bait and Tackle reels them in


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID-Inspired
by her father, Brynda Porter
recently opened Lake Placid
Bait and Tackle.
Her parents own a bait and
tackle store in Fort Lauderdale
and from the age of 13 Porter
road her bike nine miles to
work there every weekend.
"I grew up in this business
and met so many pros like
Shaw Grigsby and Hank Parker
on the circuit back then. It was
a mom and pop store, which is a
dying breed. Today I'm the
mom running this one since my
husband is attending the police
academy," Porter said.
Her husband retired from the
Marines (as part of the security
force for embassies) and Porter
is thankful for the six years
experience of living overseas in
Japan, Egypt and Berlin.
Excited to be permanently set-
tled in Lake Placid, now she's
instilling her love of fishing to
her 11-year-old Kevin and
8-year-old Jessica.
"We're working our way
around all these lakes and boat
ramps in the area," Porter said.
Porter carries the newest
tackle, but nothing frivolous.
She said, "All these hooks,
worms and lures really work.
After all, a fisherman is only as
good as what hefishes with."

If you aren't stirring a pot,
you're peeling cantaloupes, or
washing pans or making cook-

Lake Placid Bait and Tackle owner Brynda Porter scoops up some worms for fishing,


the area lakes and can even line
up a guide for any request. For
new people who want a relax-.
ing hobby, she likes to start peo-
ple out.easy, with a telescopic,
or even a cane pole for $10. She
even encourages people to
bring in a photo for her Local
Catch Bragging Board.
The live bait.consists of shin-
ers, night crawlers, red worms
and crickets. Porter carries rod
and reel combos that are ready


"Good choice," she said
gently, time after time, herding,
the students along.
And there are choices to be
made.
What side dish, for instance,
or whether to pick the alterna-.
tive meal of peanut butter and
jelly and goldfish crackers.
I was lucky the day I was
there. We served a McRib like
barbecue pork sandwich and a
peanut butter cookie with sides
of fresh fruit or tossed salad.
That meant I only had to put
a sandwich and the cookie on a
plate actually a Styrofoam
ira ,. ilMII them ,' es money.
bec.ti e there is nio clean-up.
When I rciiirned on Tuesday
tu Lake photographs, lunch was
chicken and rice with black-
eyed peas. That meant Lynette
Pringle, working the line, had a
scoop in each hand, one for the
chicken and rice, one for the
black-eyed peas, and ,*as fill-
ing each plate with a single
sweeping movement.
Her kind of accuracy and
speed only, comes with experi-
ence. I'd had problems keeping
up with an easy dry meal to


to go. There are not only name-
brand hooks like Matzuo, but
she also packages her own more
affordable types. Name-brand
plastic worms like Mann's Hard
Nose is a hot seller.
"I have my 'wish list' and
when I have enough requests, I
get them in. I like to help .the
small person, because I know
there -are lots of people that
have to fish as a food source.
Best of all. is that fishing brings


serve.
Now there is a short break
between classes,, but it's not a
break from work for the
servers.
Let me put it this way. There
was a Charles Adams cartoon
in the New Yorker magazine
years ago. A man is feeding
pigeons. Over several frames
more and more pigeons
descend, until you can't see the
man. Then in last frame the
pigeons fly off, and all that is
left of the man is a skeleton.
Well, that's what the line
looks like as two classes of
hungry students go through it..
It means the short break is
spent replenishing the food,
working double quick.
The milk cooler especially
has to be restocked.
There are four types of milk,
all 2 percent or no fat:
Chocolate (the run away best,
seller), strawberry, vanilla and
plain. But you can't just sling
the milk half pints into the
serving case, you have to
inventory them first. So you
run back to the walk-in cooler,
count out and record the num-

Chamber celebrates commerce


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
Sebring's chamber of com-
merce gathered at the
Restoration Center Thursday
night to celebrate a year of hard
work. The mood was festive
and relaxed.
Mike Carter, outgoing presi-
dent of the chamber, pointed
out that part of the celebration
reflected a growing economy.
He said 32 grand openings
have taken place in the preced-
ing year, about three new busi-
nesses a month.
He looked forward to the
opening of a new welcome cen-
ter and chamber presence on
U.S. 27 in what has been the
'Highlands Today offices. He
quickly added the chamber's
main office would remain on
the historic Circle.'
Carter was pleased that the
chamber has increased its com-
munity activity, citing the spon-
sorship of the Christmas Parade
and Race Week's Circle of
Speed.
Carter took over as president
unexpectedly and in tense times
a year and a half ago. His pred-
ecessor and the chamber's


Jaron Nash is graduating form Sebring High School. He looks for-
ward to a career as a registered nurse anesthesiologist. He received a
scholarship for $4,000. With Nash are Mike Carter (left), outgoing
chamber president, and Dan Andrews, chamber executive director.


executive director had left
office with little notice. He had
to step into the breech.
Incoming chamber president,
South Florida Community
College President Norman
Stephens, praised Carter and
thanked him for his work.
Stephens said members
would build on the foundation
created by Carter and Dan
Andrews, the chamber's execu-


tive director, by partnering,
stewardship, and commitment
to community.
"We' can only imagine what
lies ahead on the road untrav-
eled," Stephens said. He added
that by working together to
secure and maintain advances,
the community could create the
outcome it wished for.
Other individuals were hon-
ored for their contributions to


Sebring and the chamber of
commerce.
They are:
* Directors of the Year -Mike
Kirouac and Susan Jones.
* Volunteer of the Year -Tony

The Last Chance may

be the best chance


By PAULINE AU YANG
Special to the News-Sun
The United Way Helping
People in Crisis team recently
visited The Last Chance Ranch
in Venus, a non- profit institu-
tion for male juvenile delin-
quents.
Although the institution
serves juveniles, this is not a
boot camp, but a learning envi-
ronment where under the guid-
ance of the Florida Environ-
mental Institute staff, the resi-
dents learn skills that will assist
them to re-enter the community.
They receive training in respect
to manners, weights, computer,
farming, building and mainte-
nance, furniture designing, culi-
nary skill and General
Equivalency Diploma (GED).
Executive Director Jimmy
Davis said, "We create a special
environment that treats every
youth that enters our program
as a worthwhile individual
with three important character-
istics warmth, discipline and
a job."
Two of the residents shared a
letters filled with the hope that
other young people will be able
to learn from their mistakes.
One resident, Brandon, is
from Riviera Beach, in Palm
Beach County. He wrote, "I am
15 years old and I have lived a
life of crime and violence. My
crimes were mostly assault and
battery.
',"I know that I have a prob-
lem controlling my anger and
people can easily set me off.
For example, while attending
school my 'homeboys' and I
had a fight with the principal;
this was my first charge. Then I
went to an alternative school
for hard-to-handle students.
"After this I had some family
problems. My dad and I didn't
get along. We got into it one
day, and I was arrested for
assault. That was the charge
that sent me to Florida
Environmerital Institute (FIE).
While at FIE, I had some prob-
lems with my behavior and atti-
tu.de. I found myself disrespect-
ing staff and placed on behav-
i6ral work detail. I also found .
myself in several altercations
with my peers.
"As a result I was sent to the
detention center. After being
there for 21 days, I started
thinking this is not for me. This
is not the way I want to go out.
I want to go home and be with
my family. That being the case
I decided I am going to start
doing the right thing. I knew
that this was not going to be
easy but I have made up mind
not to blow a second chance I
have been given to get myself
together.
"My plans for the future are
varied. When I graduate from
the program I plan to return to
high school and play school
sports. I hope to earn a scholar-
ship in football and basketball. I
am also interested in a career
with the naval academy. What-
ever happens in the future, it,
does not include a life of crime.
I am finished with that. That
kind of life is left behind. Being
incarcerated is not for me. I do
not ever want to lose my free-
dom again., so I have to make a
change.'
Deontae is 16 and attended
Lakewood High School. "After
attending Lakewood and
before, I was chilling in the
street, smoking weed and sell-
ing it. My 'homeboys' and I
were doing anything and every-
thing for money--breaking
into houses and sellingwhat we
took from the house, robbing
people and jumping people all
just for money. No! This does
not make me feel like a thug or
a gangster. This is just life for
people like me.
"Many people say finding
jobs is a good thing, but for
young people like me who are
into drugs, money and girls, it
is hard to find a job. ... By
being a person about drugs and
money, I am now an inmate and
student at FEI, the Last Chance
Ranch.
"I have been here for nine
months and a few days. So far I


have gotten better in manners
and respect, good leadership
and social skills. My current
rank is Buck-A-Roo and soon
to be a Ranch Hand. I will be
released in June. ..
"I would like to be a game
designer or a massage therapist,
Doing either one of these things
will make me happy. Later in
life I would like to get married


and have six kids. Hopefully,
they won't have to go down the
same road as I did. ...."
Last Chance Ranch which
receives financial contribution
from United Way, is on a large
farm with vegetables, roosters
and hens, pigs, goats, horses,
donkeys and dogs. To learn

Liza Jackson, one of the Postal Food Drive coordinators, stands
with the truckload of food items collected during the recent
'Stamp Out Hunger' food drive run by rural carriers, clerks,
managers and other volunteers. The Sebring and Avon Park post
offices collected about 55,000 pounds of food during the food
drive.


Goin' Postal collects over 1 ton of food to

complement local 'Stamp Out Hunger' drive


Special to the News-Sun
The generous citizens of
Highlands County again
showed their tremendous sup-
port during the annual National
Association of Letter Carriers
Annual Food Drive on May 13.
In order to assist the carriers
in their quest to surpass last
year's estimated collection of
46,000 pound, the Goin' Postal
locations at 3609 Sebring
Parkway and 461 S. Commerce
Ave. collected food for the two
week period preceding, May
'13th. The net result was a wind-
fall of donated food, far exceed-
ing the expectations of the
Goin' Postal staff.
In all, Goin' Postal collected
approximately 2,755 pounds of
food, both in their stores and on
Saturday's collection, thereby
contributing to the success of


the local estimated collection of
55,000 pounds of food.
All of the donated food stays
right here in Highlands County,
thereby benefiting our own res-


idents in need. Beneficiaries
include the Salvation Army,
New Testament Mission,
Church Services in Avon Park,
and others.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



'Smart' moves by those college kids


My oldest son
John is back from LAURA
college for the
summer. This Laur
means there are
suitcases in my
den, empty cereal
bowls have proliferated on my
kitchen counters, and our dog


Perky has been in heaven.
John made straight A's this
last semester in college, which'
he will tell you is no mean feat.
If you look at his grades, you
would come to the conclusion
that he was quite smart. You
might rethink that if you had
been in our house this past
Wednesday.
I have to break here and
describe the dinner hour on
Wednesday in the Ware house-
hold. Because we attend Bible
Study on Wednesday evenings,
dinner often is a rushed affair
with people gulping down, food
so as not to be late. Add to this
the fact that John, James, and I
had spent a couple of hours pre-
vious involved in an important
computer game and we were in


'S LOOK


a


even more of a
hurry.


John decided he
Ware did not want any
baked chicken for
dinner. Instead, he
elected to micro-
wave a can of soup. He pulled
out a deep blue bowl and filled
it with chunky pepper steak
soup.
To his surprise, when he
opened up the microwave, he
found the bowl had cracked in
two and his soup was covering
the glass plate on the bottom of
our microwave. Also in the
microwave was the spoon he
had apparently left in the bowl
when he put. it in the
microwave.
Now, if putting a metal spoon
in the microwave is not enough
to qualify as less than smart,
keep reading. John decided he
was really hungry, so after he
picked out the two big pieces of
glass that had once been a bowl,
he proceeded to eat the soup off
the glass microwave plate.
As an adult and a mom, I nat-


urally expressed concern about
possible glass in his soup.
John's response was that if he
started choking I would know
there was glass in the soup. He
is fine as I type this and it looks
like there was no glass in his
soup. Still, it's not something I
would recommend.
However questionable John's
actions might have been, they
do not compare with the actions
of one Stevie Spencer. Mr.
Spencer was painting at his
home in North Carolina when
he took a break to have a, ciga-
rette. Now you might think that
the smoking alone would be
less intelligent than eating soup
from a broken bowl. But wait,
there's more.
After finishing his cigarette,
Mr. Spencer decided to douse
the butt into a bowl he had
placed on the coffee table. He
thought it contained water.
Somehow it had slipped his
mind that the bowl contained
paint thinner, not H20.
The-paint thinner ignited.
The fire spread to some papers.
Spencer got his wife out of the


house and then tried to battle
the blaze with a hose. By the
time firefighters came to the
house, it was too far gone to
save.
Finally I can't end this col-
umn without talking about the
college student in England who
had too much to drink. While
drunk, he somehow managed to
climb 100 feet up into a pine
tree. Once up there, he fell
asleep.
The student woke up
wrapped around a branch, hav-
ing avoided somehow falling
out of it. He used his cell phone
to call for help. According to
the article I read, it took eight
firefighters 90 minutes to get
the confused man out of the
tree.
' Remember as you read these
tales: these people are not pro-
fessionals. And you shouldn't
try any of these things at home.

dent. She can be contacted by

Pay attention to

the laws passed
Editor:
Last May I wrote about our


government letting us down
since 1973, the time of the last
real gasoline shortage. In the
news recently, our government
has been letting us down longer
than that., That is, the very real
problem of illegal immigrants.
*- Our president and congress
have said they will do some-
thing about it. Why not five
years ago? 20 years ago?
Where is Will Rogers when
we need, him? That beloved
philosopher/comedian of de-
cades past talked about every
thing. "I never met a man I did-
n't like," "All I know is what I
read in the newspaper," "So
live that you wouldn't be
ashamed to sell the family par-
rot to the town gossip." He
often chided congress; a good
one: "When congress makes a
joke, it's a law and when they
-, make a law, it's a joke!" That
one was far more, prophetic
than anyone knew at that time,
or since.
Our congress passed some
laws, rules, etc. concerning
immigration many years ago..
The joke has been that hardly
anyone in our government paid
any attention to those laws.
Now we hear of government
officials estimating from 11 to
20 million illegal immigrants
now in our country. Their esti-
mates are no better than mine.
Now they are .going to do
something about it. No, I'm not
a betting man. First they need
to find out who is who. Then
they need to make legal those
who show they can begood cit-
izens and allow for sponsors
for those who can and will
become good citizens. Many of
those; who are good workers
and of. good character, really
should become citizens. Rules


,, need to be changed.
I urge everyone to support

Be aware of

Editor:
I want to talk to ladies. Heart
problems are not just for men.
You need to be aware ladies
that we lose more women from
- this heart problem. If you are
short of breath, sweats, it could
be an intense crushing or a
tightness in your chest, even a

mild tightness in the chest.
There are even silent heart
attacks. Be aware of changes in
your body. The pain could radi-
ate to your, back or arm, short-
ness of breath has even been
confused ,with indigestion.
Sweating, nausea these are a
few symptoms, you need to let
yourself know. He will do an
EKG electroo cardiogram) of
the heart. .
Dr. Rai) Tangunan took my
EKG, then called Dr. C.B.
Patel. He did an echo gram and
stress test. Because of lung
problems I could not go on the
tread mill. He called Dr. Story
out of Orlando to do heart
catheterization.
The 4th of April my result
was a triple bypass open heart
surgery. The 7th I was in
Orlando having my surgery
with Dr. David Spector. I never
thought I'd have heart surgery.
If you have these symptoms
please see your doctor and let
him arrange these tests. I'put it
off afraid I was just complain-
ing over nothing. If it had not
been done I would not be here
to care for my handicapped son
or celebrate Mother's Day this
month. I cannot stress enough
how important it is to note any
unusual pain or discomfort,
tired, not able to do your regu-
lar jobs. Don't wait. This was
always thought to be related to
men.
I had three blockages. They
took veins from my legs to go
around the three clogged arter-
ies. Fats, junk food, stress is the
main culprit.
Our heart gets starved for
oxygen. We are in trouble.
Last week I ended up in the
hospital for three days. I was
given new medications to help.
This does not mean my heart is
damaged. It's just irritated.


There is a lot of people
involved in this- surgery. You
are bruised from all the han-
dling. It's common to have this.
All I can stress to women,
please be sure you check out all
the signs and get .help now,
Don't wait like I did, it's better
to be safe than sorry.
I had pericarditis (that's the
sack around the heart, gets
inflamed).
It takes six to eight weeks or
longer to start- feeling better. I
pray everyone listens to me and
has it checked out and God
bless you all. I thank all the
.wonderful doctors and nurses
who helped in my recovery.
They are very special people
and are there for you.
The care I received in
Orlando was the best, also here
at Florida Hospital. I'm forever
grateful for all of you.
Thank you for allowing me
to write this. I pray if you do,
have any signs you will have it
checked out. Remember, there
are heart attacks with no signs.

radio tags broadcast the unique
identifying number of the item
to any compatible reader within
a range, from a few inches for
credit cards, up to 20 feet for
merchandise tags, and up to

Electronic passes with RFID

driven that year.
The FDA has called for

Microchip implants has been
prophesied for many years
now, and a close reading of the
Book of Revelation and other
scriptural references will make
clear what is happening. The
move toward globalization and
the use of microchips to replace

12 months is

more like it
Editor:
The article you had on 12
days of Hurricane Prep was
very informative, but I have to
share this very important extra
thought, especially with the
people at the American Red
Cross.
The idea of buying one of
these items each day to take
advantage of the sales tax break
is wonderful, but they failed to
mention that a loan would
probably be necessary to allow
many folks to afford such a list
of items. Unfortunately there
are a number of us that couldn't
buy these items over a 12-
month period, due to limited
finances. Perhaps there are
other suggestions that are less
costly.
None of us wants to be a hur-
ricane victim, but there are fac-
tors besides the storm itself.

this year my assign-
ment is a constant
substitute teaching
schedule, which is
fine with me because
of all my "irons in the
fire" teaching,
writing, keyboards,
and keyboard instruc-
tion.
She was right-
"right on," as we used
to say.
What I would like
to see is teachers
swap classrooms once
in a while, teachers


At the last bell just
a few days before
public schools broke
for the summer, I left ,
a classroom and ,v
dodged students
headed for home.
They moved as if an
unseen force was
driving them on at
breakneck walk to WRI
reach the yellow and
black district school Cn
buses and the rows Ric Li
of cars, pickups and Ri Lil
SUVs, waiting for
the surging throng.
I was going in the same gen-
eral direction, so I flowed with
the flow, as they say.
When I got to the administra-
tion wing, where the classroom
key would hang on the back of
the door to the office of the
bookkeeper, I strolled down the
short hall and saw a friend.
We had one of those brief
Nice To See You conversations
that probably lasted about a
minute.
On a visit from the district
office, she asked me how I liked
substitute teaching.
How do I like being a "sub?"
I like it.
She said, "You know, I have
always told new teachers that
they should spend a year sub-
bing.".
"I've learned a lot," I said.
"I bet you have," she smiled.
Others gathered around and
our short chat ended, just as
quickly as it had begun.
I hung the key on the back of
the bookkeeper's door and
smiled. I said a goodbye to the
bookkeeper and headed out the
back door of. the administration
wing, on the way to my car, on
my own way home from anoth-
er day at school.
Last year, I taught full time;


for me and for the kids who
come to school.
I have a little speech I've
given a few times. It goes
something like, "I'm here to
protect the learning atmosphere
for the students who are here to
study and learn." If a student
tries to take over the classroom,
he or she is escorted to the
Office of Dean.
I am encouraged by the
results of middle school experi-
ments that separate boys, and
girls. In a California school dis-
trict, within 30 days of "sepa-
rate but equal" learning envi-
ronments, the aggregate per-
centage of test score increases
averaged to about 10 percent,
within one month.
From a school-teaching fam-
ily, I am just as puzzled as you
are about the lack of respect for
our public schools.
"Bloom Where You're
Planted" seems to sum it up for
kids who are just beginning the
journey from childhood to
adulthood.
"Begin Where You Are"
could be another one.
It helps to meet these kids,
get to know these kids, try to
relate all the things subs are
supposed to do.
And then, there were the
times when the teachers left les-
son plans that asked me to actu-
ally teach.
Hey, if you want to know
what is .going on in our class-
rooms, park in the school park-
ing lot and find the administra-
tive office, sign in, put on a vis-
itor's pass and check us out.
See and hear for yourself for
what you are paying.

This school year, I've walked
into other teacher's classrooms
and looked around, looked at
the general layout of the class-
rooms, and spent a lot of my

if the teacher I'm subbing is a

The walls are filled with so

Any of those

Transportation committee to

view other C.R. 635 routes


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Following
directives from the county com-r
mission, local planners have
some alternative routes for
County Road 635.
Some alternative routes
could run through Sebring Hills
and, to a lesser degree, Sebring
Country Estates. While the
alternatives are very prelimi-
nary, they could affect a signif-
icant number of homes.
On Tuesday, county commis-
sioners ordered a section of the
proposed C.R. 635 extension on
the eastern edge of Highlands
Hammock State Park removed
from long-range plans.
In addition, planners under-
stood Commission Chairman
Bob Bullard to say he wanted
them to look at alternate routes,
get feedback on them, talk to
the Florida Division of State
Lands on a swap for right of
way in the. park, and run traffic
models without that section of
toad.
Also, commissioners wanted
planners to take the "cloud' off
home sales in Golf Hammock,
along the original proposed
route.
Planners will present prelim-
inary alternate routes to the
Long-range Transportation
Committee at 10 a.m.
Wednesday. The committee
meets in the Engineering
Department training room at
501 S. Commerce Blvd.,
Sebring.
Planner Don Hanna said
Friday that staff wanted to have
another workshop on the long-
range transportation plan, to
follow-up last Tuesday's dis-
cussion with commissioners,
however, they couldn't make
the deadline for May 23. There
won't be a meeting May 30. It's
Labor Day and the fifth
Tuesday of the month, when the
county commission will not
have a regular meeting.
The earliest county commis-
sioners can have a second
workshop on the plan is June 6,
Hanna said.
Alternatives?
Current options, besides tak-
ing the road through the eastern


edge of the state park, are as
follows, with some estimated
impact to homes:
* Crane Street. To widen
Egret Street south from
Thunderbird Road to Wren
Avenue, east to Crane Street,
then south to Hammock Road
would require buying 138 hous-
es.
* Puffin Street. To run a road
south off Cougar Boulevard for
a half mile to Sebring Hills
Phase 3 an undeveloped area
west of the subdivision then
southeast to the junction of
Puffin Street and Howey Road
(in Sebring Hills) and then
south along Puffin Street to
Hammock Road would require
buying nine houses and 341
lots.
* Heron Street. This option
would follow the same course
south from Cougar Boulevard
as the Puffin Street option, but
would head east on Howey
Road to Heron Street before
heading south to Hammock
Road. The county would need
to purchase 26 houses and 334
lots.
Viable?
Hanna said early studies
don't suggest an alternative that
is as viable as going through the
state park, if the state will trade
the land.
He said development servic-
es staff is also doing a proximi-
ty study, based on the presump-
tion that homes might lose
value by being within 300 feet
of a major collector road. That
would affect far more houses,
Hanna said.

One way?
Right now, the circulation
system in Sebring Hills behind
Lakeshore Mall is inadequate,
Hanna said. People already use
the residential streets as north-
south connectors.
When asked if creating one-
way streets through Sebring
Hills would help accommodate
more traffic, he said it's great
for getting traffic out of a con-
gested area, such as an urban
downtown. However, one-way
streets tend to destroy residen-
tial areas, and promote com-
mercial growth, Hania said.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop



Yield
Preparing to pull onto the
highway, I came to the yield
sign, slowed down and
checked the oncoming traf-
fic. I braked. What I had
seen in my side view mirror
and with a turn of my head
convinced me it was better
to wait.
But the person in the car
behind me didn't agree. The
honking horn was persist-
ent.
Still, I kept watch and
tried not to let this impatient
driver push me out before
the right time. My biggest
concern was that the driv-
er, s agitation would cause
him to try to get around me
and possibly cause an acci-
dent.
Rather than become flus-
tered, I prayed to make the
right judgment call. Only a
couple of minutes passed
before I was able to safely
pull out. But, it must have
seemed like an eternity to
the restless driver behind
me.
I'm convinced that
though he thought he could
see what was coming, he
wasn't able to see what I
could see from my perspec-
tive as the lead car.
That incident got me to
wondering if that's what we
do with God sometimes. We
see what we think is the full
view of things and bombard
heaven with our requests.
We're so sure of ourselves
and what the answer should
be.
But we get flustered
when God's answer is
delayed. We may even
shake our fists at the sky in
our impitieinie for-the
answer we feel we deserve,
Our agitation isn't rewarded
however.
We've brought our
request to God, but we
haven't rested in him. Just
tried to get him to move
based on what we can see.
He's up ahead. He can
see what we cannot. How
much better it is to trust him
and his eternal perspective.
Pushing our own agenda
would be a foolish decision
and cause more grief.
"Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him,"
Psalm 37: 7a, NIV.
That morning when the
break in traffic finally came,
I eased out only to watch
the other driver zoom past
and catch up with the cars
ahead. Once again the push
was on as he weaved in and
out trying to pass.
Sometimes we get to a
yield sign and can pull right
out. Even so, sometimes we
call on God and his answers
startle us'because they come
so quickly. But, when that
isn't the case, we need to
take care not to hastily
manipulate circumstances,
pull strings or ignore warn-
ings in order to achieve a
desired result.
Yield and wait patiently
on the One who loves us
and has our best interests at
heart. The results will count
for now and eternity. Selah.

win essay


contest

After reading through 80
entries, Nu-Hope Elder Care

winners of its essay contest
Thursday afternoon.
The winners, their placing
and the money they received
are as follows: Jessica Navarro,
of Cracker Trail Elementary
School in Sebring, first place,
$60; Jesus Fonseca, of
Lakeview Christian School in
Lake Placid, second place, $40;
Amanda DeRenzis, of Cracker
Trail Elementary School, third
place, $30 and Solange
Ganthier, of Lakeview
Christian, honorable mention,
$10.
These fifth-grade students
each wrote on "My Favorite
Older American." Here are
their winning essays as they
wrote them:



By JESSICA NAVARRO
There are many people in this
huge world, but there's one per-
son who I admire. This person
volunteered for the United
States 'Marine Corp, is very
independent in accomplishing
goals and is very loyal. This
person I admire is my wonder,
ful grandpa "Walter McGuire."
The reason I admire him is
because of these three things:
sets a great example for me and
it makes a good citizen out of a
person.
First, volunteering for the
service is like volunteering for a
nightmare. But my grandpa was
strong enough to realize it was-
n't a nightmare and it wasn't a
mistake. It was leading him and
his country to, victory, showing
what the American flag meant
and to save lives. My papa "He
volunteers to fight for his coun-
try and that's what he'll do."
This showed me that he was
brave, heroic and willing to risk
his life to save hundreds of oth-
ers. This touched me deep down

inside and so I admire him for
the courage he gave.
Second, my grandfather
always had a goal to accom-
plish since he was a lad.
Anyone in his family could see
he had more goals than the hairl
on his head. Of course, his
major goal was to finish high
school, college and raise his
children properly mannered,
right choice makers and as
brave and noble as he once was
and still is. Another one of his
goals is to be independent as
long as he can because he wants
to be able to do things on his
own.
Last, finding a loyal person is
pretty hard, but my grandfather
is not only giving and sharing,
but is also, believe it or not,
loyal. He helps his neighbors
who need assistance to the hos-
pital or to get up. He also opens
the door for people, is not a
back-stabbing friend and is an'
everyday helper.
He volunteered for the serv-
ice, is setting goals like crazy


and is helping everyone. My
grandpa has done such great
things in his life and has earned
to be my favorite person. Out of
this huge world, I admire only
him.



By JESUS FONSECA
Who is my favorite older
American? I don't know who's
yours, but I sure know who's
mine. He's a plumber and a
hero, a.k.a., fireman, Mr.
Charles.
He was our favorite plumber.
Any time we needed him day or
night, he was determined to get
the job done. One night we did-
n't have water to drink or fill
my dad's water gallons for my
dad's workers to drink and so
he came and fixed the water
pipe.
He was also a fireman, a fire-
man who worked 24/7 to save
people's lives. If he wasn't, my
house would've been burned


Christians seek answers to


By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Following the release of the movie,
"The Da Vinci Code," many questions will challenge
established beliefs about Jesus.
To answer those questions, First Baptist Church of
Sebring is hosting a CCN simulcast today at 6:45 p.m.
This event is designed for those who are already
Christians or are seekers and have already read the
book or seen the movie or are simply curious about
this phenomenon.
The 90-minute broadcast is hosted by Lee Strobel
and Mark MIttelberg. Dr. Erwin Lutzer will conclude.
Strobel is a former spiritual skeptic and author of
"Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Marry."
He was the legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and
has served as teaching pastor at mega-churches,
Willow Creek and Saddleback.
Mittelberg was the primary author of the
"Becoming a Contagious Christian Training Course,"
which has been translated into 20 languages and
taught to more than a million people worldwide.
Lutzer has been the senior pastor of The Moody
Church since 1980. His is a writer of more than 20
books and international conference speaker. His most
recent work is "The Da Vinci Deception."
The simulcast will wrap up with a live, interactive
question-and-answer session for the satellite audience.
The first simulcast, given close to a month ago, had
an impact on its viewers. It was designed mainly as a
training course for those in the ministry and laypeople
who minister.
The Rev. Dr. James Henry, pastor of First Baptist
Church of Sebring, actually read the book and attend-
ed the simulcast. "I'll go along with what George
Barna said: 'It was a very good mystery and abysmal
theology.' You assume in a novel that the background
is accurate but that isn't necessarily so. I doubt if I'll
see the movie, but I'll have to wait and see."
The Rev. Bill Cole, associate pastor of education at
First Baptist of Sebring, said "I'm not planning to see
the movie but I'm planning to read the book."


In fact Cole is leading a private Bible study on
"The Da Vinci Code" called "Breaking the Da Vinci
Code."
"We had seven tonight," he said of those who
attended.
"The biggest challenge is Dan Brown's claim that
the book is factual and clearly researched. All of his
'facts' are wrong."
For example in Da Vinci's painting of the Last
Supper, on the right hand of Jesus is the Apostle John.
Brown claims that really it's Mary Magdalene.
According to Brown, it was Da Vinci's way of indi-


when the forest was on fire. I
remember it as if it were yester-
day. The fire truck racing by
and Mr. Charles driving. He
parked the car and there I saw
him putting the fire out.
We would sometimes go dii
go-cart rides by his house and
do all sorts of fun things. My
mom would sometimes make
tacos for us to go on a picnic.
Mr. Charles had many prob-
lems, but he would always
solve them. He could solve and
solve, but he had one problem
he could never control, his
death of cancer. He died on his
anniversary. I owed him so
much, I didn't know how to
repay him and that's why I say
thank you in my prayer.

Everyone admires someone.
The person that I admire tells
great stories about his child life,
spends time with me and he


served our country in the Navy.
The person that I admire is my
grandpa. He is 74 years old and
he's very special to me. My
grandpa is one of the best
grandpas in the world.
Caii you believe that ilmy
grandpa just had to tell his par-
ents where he was going and he
could go there alone. My grand-
pa says it was very different
when he was a child. Like in
one of his stories, all he had to
pay was a nickel to go to the
movies. You think that was
cheap today, but it was expen-
sive back then because if you
had a job, all you made was $12
a week. Back then it was a lot
safer than today, so the kids
could play without parent eye
contact. Like my grandpa, he
could go to the park and the
movies without his parents. But
today there are bad guys all
around so kids have to be with-
in parent eye contact. Also we
get a lot of money when we lose

casting that Magdalene was married to Jesus.
"The question arises where was John?" Cole asked.
That would leave only 11 apostles present rather than
12.
The piece of fiction focuses on the misconception
that Jesus and Mary Magdalene married and had a
child and that the bloodline continues to this day.
However, Brown claims that the Catholic church kept
it a secret.
Elaine Ables, of Zolfo Springs, is another person
who read the book and attended the first simulcast.
"(The simulcast) encouraged every Christian to read
the book. I think it's important as a Christian to read it
so we know what our response should be. I think to
defend our faith we should be informed about it. It's
controversial and contradicts everything (Christians)
know."
Bobbie Henderson, of Sebring, also attended the
simulcast. She added that she leaned more about how
uninformed non-Christians can be about the Bible.
"Christians need to study their Bibles more to respond
to those who are seeking answers."
Norma Page, of Sebring, said of the simulcast what
impressed her the most was "None of the historians
would back (Dan Brown, the author)."
She also was impressed with Dr. Paul Maier, author
and history professor at Western Michigan University.
Page does not intend to read the book or see the
movie. "I'm not a murder mystery reader anyway and
I didn't want to get irritated with things that speak
against the Lord."
Jenny Barrett, of Sebring, said she was "very
impressed" in the first simulcast with Maier. She
added, "I don't think there is anything wrong with
reading the book or seeing the movie. I just choose
not to."
Ken Schmidt, of Sebring, saw the first simulcast
but is really looking forward to today's broadcast. "I
think this one is going to be outstanding. You can use
it as a springboard as to what is fact or fiction. People
are looking for answers."

ARTS & LEISURE



Coming home can be a pleasant experience


New Avon Park
Library design
welcomed
Posthumously the great
American author, Thomas
Wolfe, in his manuscript,
informed us that "You Can't Go
Home Again." While in most
instances he has been correct,
he was happily less than accu-
rate with regard to our returning
to the remodeled and refur-
bished Avon Park Library. We
"came home" and fell in love
with it.
The design flowing from the
creativity of Suzanne Hunnicutt


of Chastain-Skillman and the
coordination of the interior by
John Cumming of CBA Library
Studio Inc. melded to form a
space of unique beauty and
functionality.
Upon entering the library a
vista of its entire depth is pre-
sented. As the eye is swept to
the back, the view is saved from
being boringly cavernous by the
accents on both sides. Beyond
the book drop on the right is the
new circulation desk. Its ebony
color fronted with accents of
shallow shadow boxes and
insets of welcoming clay
pineapple tops lends to the hint
of Southeast Asian decor
desired. The welcoming carved


pineapple theme also
is replicated on the
tower on the outside
as you enter the
library.
In the generous bay
opposite the circula-
tion desk is a forest of
see-through orange
bookshelves.
Contained on these LIBRAI
fascinating shelves -
are the juvenile col- Don
elections, the adult
audio-visual collec-
tions and the young
adult fiction collection.
Interspersed between these
wonderfully airy shelves are
task tables and settees. The


Never let a dream die


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Novelist
Sunny Serafino inspires readers
with stories of courageous
women and offers strength to
face challenges.
Set in 1950, "Beyond
Innocence" is her newest novel.
The heroine is Dorothea Fitz-
Simmons, a prim, proper
Bostonian who heads to New
York City in a fit of rebellion
for independence. She not only
discovers love, but is catapulted
into a web of deceit and danger.
Serafino's previous books
are "Secrets," the winner of a
2005 Florida Storytelling
Association/National League of
American Pen Women literary
award; "Echoes," winner of a
2004 Royal Palm Literary
Award for adult fiction;
"Shadows in the Heart;"
"Nobody's Child;" and "Pure
Gold." Her only nonfiction
work, "Following Daddy," is a
humorous biography about her
unconventional parents.
Serafino, 74, started writing
11 years ago. "Never let a
dream die. It may take time and

effort and study, but it's always
worth it. I had been a secretary
for 47 years and had to learn to
write. My main characters are
all different, but they are all
courageous and strong women.
They are always portrayed real-
istically and are faced with hav-
ing to change in order to grow. I
love contests. I recently entered
'Beyond Innocence' to a First
Chapter Contest and won sec-
ond place," Serafino said.
Serafino is a member of The
National League of American
Pen Women and served as past
president of the Vero Beach


branch. She has served on the
board of the Friends of St.
Lucie County Libraries and is a
member of the Treasure Coast
Writers' Guild, Florida Writers
Association and Morningside
Writers' Group, and also finds
time to teach creative writing.
Although she previously
lived on the east coast and had
successful books and signing,
she said she was drawn to this
area because it is a calm and
pretty escape. Her goal is to
contribute to the local area by
reaching out to readers and also
writers. Serafino is a profes-
sional speaker with Toastmaster
and often addresses civic and
church groups as well as
women's clubs and organiza-
tions on topics she writes about
- dysfunctional families,
domestic abuse, and yes, writ-
ing as a career.
Contact Sunny Serafino at
471-2065 or e-mail her at sun-
nyone@strato.net or go to

serafino. "Beyond Innocence"
is $17.95 and autographed
copies can be purchased direct-
ly from her.


walls of our
youngest readers'
section are filled
with small, colorful
tropical fish all
swimming toward
the main seating
area. On the right
beyond the circula-
tion and librarian's
RY LINES desk is the approach
-- to the entire fiction
Brusha section. At the
-- beginning on the left
are 10 Internet termi-
nals for public use,
which back onto four tables
with outlets for laptop comput-
ers and wonderful looking
lamps. Continuing back, the
wall is covered with an 8-foot
by 13-foot world map. One can
easily immerse oneself in geog-
raphy. Further back into the
addition are all of the fiction
collections, both regular and
large print. This area contains
all of the recent releases as well.
At the juncture of the new
east wing with north-south axis
of the building, the panorama of
the seating area is presented.
This large floor-to-ceiling win-
dowed area i tiled in faux slate


with an oval, central carpet
inlaid. The carpet is unique in
that it graphically represents a
rock-bottomed pond replete
with fish. Overstuffed wicker
chairs allow the contemplation
of the "pond." The room is fin-
ished off with lush greenery
supplied to us by the Founders
Garden Club of Avon Park. In
this area also stands the Friends
of the Library coffee stand
where for a dollar one can drink
oneself into a caffeine delirium.
Beyond the sitting area resides
the non-fiction collection, both
standard and recent release, as
well as the Spanish collection.
The magazine and newspaper
collections also are contained
therein. Task tables in this area
provide semi-quiet sites for
serious perusal. On the front of
the building is a separate
entrance for the Friends of the
Library book resale room.
Browsers are encouraged.
The Saturday afternoon film
series has restarted in our
expanded meeting room. A new
home sound system has been
mounted to give a near-theater
experience. The list of Saturday


films for the upcoming month
are as follows:
June 3 "Spare Parts," a
much-admired Slovenian
(English subtitles) film directed
by Damjan Kozole;
June 10 "Hawaii, Oslo,"
Norway's official Academy
Award selection, directed by
Erik Poppe and subtitled in
English;
June 17 "Anytown,
USA," a distinguished docu-
mentary by Kristian Fraga in
English; and
June 24 "Campfire," a
multiple film competition
award winner from Israel by
Joseph Cedar.
Films start at noon on each
Saturday the library is open.
They are free and all are wel-
come.
So there, we were able to
come home, and we're happy
about it and want to share that
feeling with you.

Don Brusha is the librarian
at Avon Park Library. He may
be reached by e-mail at
dbrusha@myhlc.org or person-
ally in the library.

Tips to keep pets safe from poisons


Dogs of all ages, especially
puppies, explore with their
mouths. This behavior often
lands them in trouble. Your ani-
mal may become poisoned in
spite of your best efforts to pre-
vent it.
There are many plants which
are considered toxic to pets.
Fortunately, there are relatively
few plants that, when ingested,
cause acute life-threatening ill-
nesses. Not all of the plants list-
ed are toxic to all animals.
Some may be toxic to one type
of animal, and not another.
Many, but not all, toxic
plants are not very palatable.
Therefore if given the choice,
animals will avoid ingesting
them even though they may be
prevalent in the environment of
the animals. Many toxic plants
rarely cause problems because
most dogs don't chew them -
the exceptions of course, young
puppies who are inclined to
explore the world with their
mouths, teething dogs may
chew on everything, and older


dogs that are simply
fond of chewing.
Toxic plants may
contain wide variety
of poisons. Reactions
to poisonous plants
vary from severe to
mild. Most cause
vomiting, abdominal
pain and cramps.
Some cause tremors,
seizures, heart and
respiratory and/or
kidney problems,
which are difficult to
interpret. Other
symptoms may

include swelling of the mouth,
lips and tongue that can make
breathing difficult or cause
asphyxiation. Mild symptoms
may include itching and rash.
To protect your pet, simply
use common sense and take the
same precautions you would
with a child. Although rodent
poisons and insecticides are the
most common sources of com-
panion animal poisoning, the
following list of less common


but potentially toxic
agents should be
avoided if at all pos-
sible:
1. Chemicals used
on lawns and gar-
dens, such as fertiliz-
er and plant food, can
be easily accessible
and fatal to pets if
allowed in the yard
unsupervised.
2. Plant-proof your
home. Plants are an
attractive part of home
decorating however
can be toxic to pets. Be


careful what you bring in and
monitor if your pet is getting
into it. Ingestion of almost
every plant can cause signs of
vomiting and diarrhea. Easter
lilies can cause fatal kidney
failure.
3. Poisonous household
plants include azalea, gerani-
ums, dieffenbachia (dumb
cane), lilies, mistletoe, philo-
dendron, bird of paradise
(seeds), bottlebrush (flowers),


caladium, calla lily, daffodil,
narcissus (bulbs), sago palm,
ball fern, baby rubber plant,
African violet, and jack-in-the-
pulpit, to name a few.
If you suspect your pet has
been exposed to a poison, take
60 seconds to safely collect and
have at hand the material
ingested. Detailed information
may be of great benefit to the
poison control center and your
veterinarian as they determine
exactly what poisons are
involved. Be as specific as pos-
sible not just pesticide but what
kind and active ingredients, and
a general idea of how much was
ingested. If you need to take
your animal to the veterinarian,
be sure to take with you the
container from which the poi-
son which was consumed or a
sample of the plant.

ESSAY
Continued from 1B
our teeth. But my grandpa only
got a dime or a nickel. That was
a lot to him. My grandpa has a
lot of stories like that, but those
were only a few.
My grandpa and I always
spend time together. We plays
games like Monopoly, go fish
and marbles. We have different
types of games with marbles.
Our favorite one is when you
use a shoe box and cut holes in
it. Then we try to shoot the mar-
bles into the holes. He also
takes me places like St. Pete
Beach. That was a really fantas-
tic time. We go on the Disney
Cruise together. On the Disney
Cruise we go in the pool togeth-
er. We play catch with a ball.
Then we have ice cream. Our
favorite kind of ice cream is
chocolate. Mmmmmm good!
At dinner we fight who gets the
turkey leg. But we really don't
fight, we are just messing
around. I love it when my
grandpa spends time with me. I
have a really fun time.
One of the most important
things my grandpa did was, he
served our country in the Navy
during the Korean War. He was
a Gunner Mate. A Gunner Mate
is a person who operated and
cleaned the big guns. The guns
were called three Inch 50s. He
traveled on a big air plane carri-
er for six months at a time. The
ship traveled to the
Mediterranean and hit different
ports every 10 days. He visited
ports such as Italy, Spain and
France. At the ports he toured
the cities and experienced how
other people lived around the
world. I'm glad my grandpa
served our country so we can
have freedom and live a normal
life.
My grandpa is very special to
me and his great stories, him
spending time with me and

being in the Navy are just a few
reasons why I love and admire
him so much. But, I have to tell
you although those reasons are
very important, the absolute
best reason I admire and love
him is that he is a great grandpa
and he loves me more than any-
thing in the world.





By SOLANGE GANTHIER
Generous, helpful and deter-
mined. These are the character-


istics of Arthur Paterson, who
we will c .Grandpa Pat,
because, of course, he is my
grandpa. In this essay I will
pick ,some of his characteristics
and tell you how he got them
and how he has used them to
become the respected member
of the community he is now.
First, I will tell you about his
generosity. Grandpa Pat is a
great supporter of education.
He donates a lot of money to
Xavier University, gives schol-
arships through organizations
like Guardsmen and helps
schools near him through his
business. The reason Grandpa


Pat is such a big supporter of
education is because when he
was only 10 years old his father
died and his mother became ill,
so he was never able to finish
school and gain the knowledge
he wanted to.
The thing I admire about
Grandpa Pat the most is his
determination, because even
though he was never able to fin-
ish school, that determination
has made him the wealthy busi-
nessman he is now.
Generous? Yes. Determined?
As always. Yep, this about sums
up why Grandpa Pat is my
favorite older American.

Pacheco brings magic and


illusion to Highlands County


SEBRING Magic by
Nelson & Company will be pre-
senting its first evening show
for the summer season titled the
"Alakazam Magic Show."
The public will have an
opportunity to experience an
evening of magic and illusion
like never seen before in
Highlands County at 7 p.m.
Saturday, June 17. This magic
extravaganza will take place at
the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center on U.S. 27 South.
"Most people are familiar
with my more intimate close-up
magic presented in the local
restaurants or corporate events
in town," says Nelson Pacheco,
award-winning magician. "This
is an opportunity to present to
the community our much larger
show filled with humorous
magic and large stage illusions
accompanied by state-of-the-art
lights and sound."
In addition to Pacheco and
his assistants, a special treat
featuring guest stars, Madam
Neesha and Abdulah Kranium,
international mind-reading duo,
will be performing their unusu-
al comedy mind reading act.

HistoryLesson
5 Years Ago
May 20, 2001: Ronnie
Johnston, playing in the
age 60-69 senior flight,
fired an even-par 71 to take
the lead after the first day
of play in the Highlands
County Men's Amateur Golf
Tournament at River
Greens Golf Course. Close
behind were Brian Bone,
Eddie Freeland and Greg
Albritton at 1-over playing
the blue course.

15 Years Ago
May 22, 1991: Kiwanis
scored five runs in the fifth
inning and staved off a late
Kopta and Bennett rally to
up its record to a perfect
8-0 with an 11-8 victory.
David Farmer had three
RBIs and Cedric Tate
struck out 14 over seven
innings to lead Kiwanis.
Justin Jackson led off the
fifth for Kiwanis with a sin-
gle, then made it all the
way home after a throwing
error. Bo Turner added an
RBI single, and Farmer's
biggest shot came in the
form of a two-RBI double
to left-center.

Spring Fling

A.C. Wilson throws for 333 yards, 2 TDs to

lead Sebring to runaway win in spring game


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
MULBERRY Consider the
Sebring offense officially two dimen-
sional.
Already in possession of T.J.
Williams, who rushed for 1,015 yards as
a sophomore last season, the Blue
Streaks unveiled a devastating
passing attack in Friday's spring Se
game at Mulberry as quarterback
A.C. Wilson completed 9-of-14 2
passes for 333 yards and two Mul
touchdowns and also ran for 52
yards and a pair of TDs to lead 4
the way to a 28-6 blowout.
"That was a lot of fun," said Wilson,
who will be a senior in the fall.
Sebring's first four offensive plays
were runs, exactly what the offensive
game plan originally was set to feature.
That all changed when wideout Sam
Robinson ran right past his defender and
Wilson dropped a bomb right into his
hands for an 82-yard scoring strike on
play No. 5.

"We read that the guy was smaller
than Sam and we knew Sam was athlet-
ic," Wilson said. "We saw it was a mis-
match and Sam stepped up and made the
play."
That set the tone for the night. All but
two of Wilson's passes covered 20 yards
or more and four of them went for 43
yards or more as the Streaks took
[ng advantage of the Panthers' porous
pass defense.
"We weren't planning on throw-
erry ing it that much," Sebring coach
SJared Hamlin said. We took what
they gave us and they gave us
some things in the passing game.
We were going to throw it a little bit, but
they gave us a lot and we took it.
"I was happy to see that. It's going to
help us out. We're going to have a good
running attack and if we show we can
throw the ball, that's going to help (the
running game)."
Sebring's second scoring drive was
also five plays, this time capped by
Wilson's 28-yard scramble into the end

'Sports Illustrated' honor a chance for Sebring High to make a difference


Sebring High School athlet-
ic director Terry Quarles sat in
anticipation.
While the featured speakers
at the ATLAS and ATHENA
Conference in Palm Beach
May 8 enlightened those in
attendance, the Sebring repre-

knowledge and crossed their
fingers. After the seminar, 17
Sports Illustrated schools
would be announced.
Back in March, Quarles
submitted an application on
the high school's behalf to the
SI program. For Quarles, it -
was an opportunity to get in on
the ground floor of a trail-blaz-
ing endeavor and set an exam-
ple in Highlands County.
Most importantly, it was an
opportunity to help kids.

Mulberry running back Kenard Baker (above) gets tripped up by
Sebring's Willie Lowe on Friday.

open on a crossing route and
outran the defense to the goal
line.
Hoffner added a 65-yard
reception on the Streaks' last
possession, which ended at the
1-yard line when Wilson took a
knee on the game's final play.
"Kyle helped me out a whole
bunch," Wilson said. "My two
main receivers are Kyle and
Sam and Kyle's been my main
receiver since JV, so I think
that's going to help out this sea-
son."
Hamlin was also glad to see
Hoffner get involved in the
passing game.
"We got our tight end
involved and our backs
involved and Sam caught a cou-
ple of balls, so we got several

people involved in the passing
game, and that's a good thing,"
he said.
The Streaks' defensive per-
formance was also a good
thing. With the exception of an
80-yard run by Ricky Parker
that set up Mulberry's touch-
down in the third quarter,
Sebring bottled up the Panthers'
wing-T offense and also got a
pair of takeaways.
"It's a toughoffense to stop,"
Hamlin said. "That's an offense
I hate to see. We don't get to see
that offense and it's hard for us
to prepare for it because we
don't show it very well, but
they did a good job.

Sebring's Sam Robinson (right) looks for a way through the defense
after catching a pass Friday night. Robinson caught three passes for
113 yards and a TD.


They bent, but they didn't
break and they made some
plays and caused a few
turnovers."
Williams finished with 67
yards on 13 carries and had a
47-yard scoring run called back


on a penalty.
In the junior varsity quarter
to open the night, Ronnie
Brassell carried the ball on six
of Sebring's eight offensive
plays, scoring on a 5-yard run to
lead the Streaks to a 7-0 win.

thought, 'My goodness, this is
serious.'"
With the recent explosion of
bad press steroids have attract-
4d through Major League
Baseball, it's almost absurd to
t think their abuse has been por-
trayed in a positive light. One
of the key observations made
15y the speakers is the subtle
(and sometimes not-so-subtle)
imagery in the media.
One particular ad campaign
from the automobile manufac-
turer Saab describes a new
engine as being "like your old
car, on steroids." Another illus-
tration depicts the once whole-
sofie images of Superman and
Wonder Woman as fit but real-
jstic-looking heroes replaced
by muscle-bound, veiny super-
humans.
* Even the downfall of Barry
Bonds, Rafael Palmeiro and
Sammy Sosa can be construed
as a result of their sudden, dis-
continued steroid use.
' One of the reasons the
ATLAS and ATHENA pro-
grams are so successful is that
they avoid the pitfalls that
doomed other curriculum


enhancers such as the DARE
(Drug Abuse and Resistance
Education) campaign.
Separating the students into
gender-specific groups makes
the process much more rele-
vant, and the student-led role-
playing is far more effective
than lecturing "Just Say No"
propaganda.
Appreciating the magnitude
of the epidemic and the unpar-
alleled research of Goldberg
and Elliot, additional funding
was provided by the
Department of Children and
Families and the Hanley
Center.
Florida became the only
state to award 17 schools, but
the increased odds didn't make
Quarles and her fellow Blue
Streaks less appreciative.
Quarles hopes her ambition
will be contagious when the
program goes into effect to
start the 2006-07 school year.
"I wanted to apply because,
although I don't think we have
a (steroid) problem here, we
have a responsibility," said
Quarles. "We can't just turn
our heads."
