Jones said the automotive industry

Like car tires, joints wear faster if

Alvarez said, explaining that the

AVON PARK Natural disasters and emergency
situations are an imminent threat to all communities at
all times.
It is never a matter of 'if' a community will be
impacted but rather when, how, where, what and who
will be affected and to what degree, and whether or not
they will be prepared.
Captain Preston Colby, of Florida Public Safety, and
contracted emergency manager of Avon Park, is striving
to prepare the city for whatever disasters may come.
He believes that establishing trained Community
Emergency Response Teams will better equip the city to
deal with any number of crises.
The CERT program was established to train people to
respond to emergencies in their community.
"There are countless ways in which CERT members
could be utilized," Colby said.
The idea is that when an emergency arises, public
emergency responders mpy be unable to respond imme-
diately; but a team of trained local' volunteers could
jump in to perform necessary responsibilities in the
interim.
According to a Florida Emergency Management
Agency news release dated May 29, 2003, CERT mem-
bers can give critical support to first responders, provide
immediate assistance to victims, and organize sponta-
neous volunteers at a disaster site. Additionally, they can
help with non-emergehcy projects to improve the safety
of the community.
CERT is considered a vital component of Citizen
Corps, President George Bush's community-based ini-
tiative to engage citizens in homeland security and com-
munity and family preparedness through public educa-
tion, outreach, training opportunities and volunteer
service.
Currently in Highlands County there are four teams,
two from The School Board of Highlands County and
two from South Florida Community College.
Colby knows that this is not enough. He hopes to
form one team from the city.
"So far, the only teams in the county are associated
with employers. I'm testing the waters, so to speak, try-

City officials overwhelmingly stand behind him in
this effort, and have agreed to fund $10,000 toward pur-

Training for CERT consists of a minimum of 20
hours of course work. However, Colby expects it to take

Committee recommends alternative for C.R. 635


By PHIL ATTiNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A citizen advi-
sory board wants county staff to
study at least one option for a
two-lane collector road through
Sebring Hills.
On Wednesday, the Long-.
range Transportation Commit-
tee asked to know the cost in
homes and dollars for another
route.
County Road 635 could go
west along Hammock Road,
turn north at Barn Owl Street or
Brunns Road, west at Howey
Road, north through Sebring
Hills West, and run west of
Sebring Country Estates to
Thunderbird Road.
County Engineer Ramon


Gavarrete said a preliminary
design and environmental study
would examine impact, includ-
ing possible noise on the neigh-
borhood.
"Sebring Hills roads aren't
collector roads," he said.
"They're residential."
Gavarrete said existing 50-
foot right of way on Sebring
Hills streets could take 30-foot-
wide pavement, but requires
curbs, gutters and off-site
drainage systems to handle
storm water runoff and reten-
tion, as required by the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District.
Don Hanna, planner, said
C.R. 635 would be a two-lane
road in the short-term. The 25-


year needs map has it listed as a
four-lane road.
By today's standards,
Gavarrete said, a two-lane rural
collector road must have a 100-
foot-wide right of way. He can
fit a four-lane road into 100
feet, such as where Sebring
Parkway meets U.S. 27.
However, he still needs to deal
with drainage.
For the proposed route
through Highlands Hammock
State Park, directly west of Golf
Hammock subdivision,
Gavarrete planned a 200-foot
right of way to provide a berm
and vegetative buffer between
the road and existing homes.
So far, the county has no
assurance the state will give up


that land.
Committee member Bill
Schaffer asked to have a sub-
committee look at the state's
linear facilities policy, to see if
there isn't some way to con-
vince state officials to swap
park land for the road.
Lesa Morey, Golf Hammock
resident, said members of her
community suggested taking
the road along platted roads
through less populated sections
of Sebring Hills to avoid the
state park entirely.
"You could start tomorrow,"
she said.
Morey assumed the need for
a road plan was to improve cir-
culation, not just to put in rural
collectors. Improving several


streets in Sebring Hills could
help carry more traffic, retain
residential character, and pro-
vide incentive for sidewalks
and bike paths, she said.
She also suggests connecting
the extension to Flare Road
(formerly Howey Road) to
reach U.S. 27.
Gavarrete said most large
road improvements are to move
traffic through an area, not in
and out of it.
Roberta L. Picket, represent-
ing Archbold Biological Station
for Dr. Hilary Swain, told the
News-Sun that west Sebring
Hills has pine flat woods, scrub
and wetlands, and could harbor
several threatened and endan-
gered species.


Building a road through there
could be very difficult, she said.
Some committee members
asked if using Sparta Road or
Lakewood Road as the'north-
south connection between State
Roads 64 and 66 would work.
Both roads are on the map for
improvement.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
county needs Lakewood Road,,
Sparta Road and C.R. 635 as
part of a grid network. Without:
one of them, the rest of the grid;
gets more crowded, he said.
He also said the plan to
extend Lakewood Road through
Orange Blossom Estates will'
already impact homes, just like
C.R. 635.


FHP to reconstruct scene



diagram for Meus case


By/PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING In light of
recent fele ised reports, the
Florida Higth'a\ Pairol has
ordered another accident recon-
struction for.the Je.in Claude
Meus case.'
Sgt. Steve Ashburn, an
investigator out of Tallahassee,
has been asked by FHP com-
mand, including Maj. Rebecca
Tharpe, over Troop F, to review
the data and construct a scale
drawing of a wreck that took
two lives on May 11, 2001.
Lt. Doug Dodson, public
information' officer for FHP,
Troop F, said FHP does propor-
tional diagrams, not to scale, of
wrecks. However, when Doug
Smith of, Fox 13 WTVT in
Tampa had Wiley Howell, a 25-
year traffic accident investiga-
tor for the Tampa police, recon-
struct the accident, Howell's
results differed with FHP.
In March 2006, attorney John
H. Trevena of Largo asked for

the diagrnari, which" Trdevenia
alleges mislead jurors into how
well Meus did or didn't steer
his ,truck at the speed he was
driving that night.
FHP has reported speed was
not a factor in the wreck.

investigation has not changed.
According to FHP, a semitrailer

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Laura Aho
Parsons, well-known theatre
choreographer from North
Carolina, this week joined the
faculty of the Florida! outdoor
drama theatre arts camp at
South Florida Community
Co llege
campus in
Lake Placid
from June
19-30.
Ori.gin-
ally from 4
Columbus, "" -
Ohio ,
Parsons
studied at PARSONS
Mount
Union
College in Alliance, Ohio, and
the Ohio State University in
Columbus. She holds a miner
of fine arts from the University
of Florida in Gainesville.
Parsons has choreographed,
directed and/or performed in


more than eight shows in New
York, regional theatre, Theatre
for Young Audiences, dinner
theatre, outdoor drama, TV
commercials and mini-series.
She has been chosen to join the
growing list of artistic person-
nel for the "Florida!" outdoor
drama being produced in
Highlands County.
She began her career in the
outdoor drama industry choreo-
graphing "Trumpet in the
Land" in New Philadelphia,
Ohio. Other outdoor dramas
include "The Legend of Daniel
Boone," Harrodsburg, Ky.;
"Tecumseh!," Chillicothe,
Ohio; "Anasazi, The Ancient
Ones," "Black River Traders"
and "Dreams and Drillbits" in
Farmington, N.M.; and "Horn
in the West" in Boone, N.C.
She is married to Christopher
Parsons, artistic consultant for
the "Florida!" drama company,
whom she met while working
on "Trumpet in the Land." They


have three sons, all of whom
are in the performing arts.
In the two-week drama camp
- open to those of middle

onto another car.
"Two people lost their lives
out there that night," he said.
On the night of May 11,
2001, Meus lost control of his
loaded semitrailer at the junc-
tion of State Roads 64 and 636,
seven miles east of Wauchula.
The trailer toppled onto, a
white van, crushing Nona
Moore, 40, and her daughter
Lindsey Moore, 8. Two other
daughters survived.
Meus, now 41, was convict-
ed in Au2usi 2003 of two
counts of ehicular homicide-
and sentenced on Sept. 13,
2003, to two concurrent 15-year
-sentences.
Trevena states the diagram
served only to support a theory
that Meus fell asleep behind the
wheel, and should have been


inadmissible.
The answer from Assistant
State Attorney Victoria J.
Avalon on March 28 was that
the diagram alone was not
enough to mislead the jury,
since they also have to consider
FHP Sgt. Owen T. Keen's testi-
mony of the measurements and
calculations he made at the
scene.
, Also, Keen was accepted a
witness allowed to give opinion
in testimony about traffic
wrecks, Avalon said, and thus,
the defense could not object to
his opinions or theories.
Dodson said FHP did .every-
thing they could over the last'
five years to make handle the,
case thoroughly..
"It's pretty much in the
court's hands now," he said.

Avon Park home


invaded Wednesday


By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sun
AVON PARK Police offi-
cers are searching for two or
more suspects in a home inva-
sion robbery.
"There were at least two
white male perpetrators who
fled the scene in a light-colored
sedan," Avon Park Police Chief
Frank Mercurio said in a press
release following the
Wednesday afternoon incident.
As of Thursday, police didn't
know the make or model of the
getaway car.
Two marked and a few
unmarked Avon Park Police
Department vehicles lined -the
road in front of the home at
North Palm Drive, where Ann
and Kenneth Hawbecker were
allegedly robbed at 1 p.m.
"We're not allowed to say


anything at this time," Ann
Hawbecker said Thursday in a
brief phone interview.
She would not confirm or
deny' that the suspects were
pepper-sprayed.
A Highlands County ambu-
lance remained in front of their
residence as police hung crime
scene tape but Mercurio, 'who
arrived there about 2 p.m., said
there were no injuries.
When asked about the use of
pepper spray by either the vic-
tims or the suspects, Mercurio
said he didn't know.
"They knocked on the door
and were let in the house," he
said, refusing to elaborate.
Mercurio asked that anybody
with information regarding this
home invasion contact Sgt..
Michael Rowan or Detective
Jacob Bratten at 453-6622.

Freshmen encouraged to P.A.S.S.


News-Sun
AVON PARK Summer
has arrived for public school
students in Highlands County.
The faculty and staff at Avon
Park High School want parents
to know they have prepared an
exciting and fun-filled summer
enrichment camp experience
available exclusively to all in-
coming freshmen free of
charge.
Called P.A.S.S. promoting
academic student success the


camp will run from 8 a.m. to 1
p.m., starting Tuesday through
Tuesday, June 13,
Breakfast and lunch are
included in the program.
In addition to field trips and
guests doing performance read-
ing, there will be mini-classes
in arts and crafts, team building,
and reading and math as well as
activities like reading softball
and math basketball. There will
also be swimming.


Students who qualify for bus
transportation during the regu-
lar year may request it ,for the
summer camp. However,
school administrators ask that
parents deliver their children
the first day. Buses will bring
the children home that after-
noon.

The school asks parents to
register their children today,
although they may still register
Tuesday, the first day of camp.

SEBRING Becky Fleck,

"We (at management infor-

the data and helps schools make
decisions, but we have a gap;
no person or team who have the
time and knowledge to mine the
data."
An individual whose job is to

and negative, would be very

ers alike, Fleck said. By creat-
ing that kind of context the
manager would help principals
focus their energies and target
their battles.
While members of the school
board were receptive to the
idea, they had some reserva-
tions.
Both J. Ned Hancock and
Richard Norris wondered in ,
which department -- curricu-
lum or management informa-
tion the manager would
work, and Hancock was con-
cerned the outcome might mean
more work for teachers.
The added information, he
pointed out, might mean more
is requested of the classroom.
"If I'm going to support
something like this, I need to
see a finished product. I have to
see where it's going and how
it's going to help the individual
teacher," he said.
There was also discussion of

creating a central data ware-
house, a place where educators
could retrieve archived infor-
mation.
It is increasingly important to
be able to have ready, everyday
access to data, as data now
drives instructional changes,
Fleck said.
She added that more and
more assessments are required ,,
all -the ,time, creating an ever,
increasing data pool.
No action was taken at the
meeting.

Gallagher urges residents to prepare for hurricane season


Take advantage

of tax savings
Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE Tom
Gallagher, Florida's chief finan-
cial officer and state fire mar-
shal, is urging Floridians to take
advantage of the Hurricane
Preparation Tax Free Holiday,
going on now until June 1 when
the 2006 hurricane season
begins. Gallagher also
announced that the Department
of Financial Services' is offer-
ing a Hurricane Toolkit to help
homeowners organize their
financial information, so recov-
ery can begin more quickly in
the event of a disaster, along
with a checklist they can use to
review their insurance coverage
with their agent.
"Another active hurricane
season is in the forecast and,
while we can't control the
weather, we can control its
impact on our lives," said
Gallagher, who as CFO over-
sees the Department of
Financial Services and as state
fire marshal' oversees search
and rescue operations when the
state's Emergency Operations
Center is activated.
"It is vitally important to take
personal responsibility now by
stocking up on supplies and
preparing your home, your
finances and your' family,"
Gallagher said. "The more we
prepare now, the quicker we
will be able to respond and
recover from any potential hur-
ricane."
The tax holiday is intended to
provide an incentive for
Floridians to stock up on items
like flashlights, batteries, gener-
ators and, storm shutters, and is
expected to generate more than
$41 million in tax savings. For
more information on items
included in the tax holiday, visit
www.fldfs.com and click on
"Hurricane Season 2006."
Eight storms struck Florida
in 2004 and 2005 and damaged
an estimated one in five homes.
To help lessen potential hurri-
cane damage, the ,Legislature
and governor earlier this month
approved $250 million for
inspections' and matching grants
to help Floridians enhance their
homes so they can better with-
stand a storm. The department
is currently working to imple-
ment the program, and
Gallagher said the program is
expected to be in place by early
fall.
In addition to taking advan-
tage of the tax holiday,
Gallagher is urging homeown-
ers to use the department's new
Hurricane Toolkit to organize
their financial information. The
toolkit will help jumpstart the
recovery process should disas-
ter strike.
"We've learned to take steps
to minimize the physical dam-
age storms can inflict; however,
many of us may not think about
being financially prepared for a'
storm," Gallagher said. "This
toolkit will provide the finan-
cial tools you and your family
will need to recover from a dis-
aster."
The department has also cre-
ated a checklist, available at
www.fldfs.com, designed to.help
Floridians review their cover-
age with their agent and under-
stand what their policy covers
and what their potential out-of-
pocket costs could be.


Gallagher said consumers
should understand whether they
have "replacement cost" or
"actual cash value" for a cov-
ered loss and what their
deductible would be under each
potential peril. In addition,
homeowners should strongly
consider adding flood insurance
and law and ordinance coverage
to help pay for rebuilding an
older home to meet current
building codes.
Gallagher said Floridians
also should:
Inventory your household


items, including receipts, pur-
chase dates and serial numbers.
Photograph or video-tape your
possessions. Keep copies of this
information and your insurance
policies in a safe place and keep
the originals in a safe deposit
box.
N Write down the name,
address and claims-reporting
telephone number of your
insurance company, which may
differ from your agent's contact
information. Keep this informa-
tion in a safe place and make
sure you have access to it if you


are forced to evacuate your
home.
Designate a relative or
friend who lives outside of the
area or the state as a family con-
tact in the event of a disaster.
This is the person your family
should call if they get separated,
during a storm.
Buy the materials you need
to secure your property and
minimize your losses. Cover
your windows with shutters, or
stock up on siding or plywood.
Store. gasoline for genera-
tors safely. Store only as much


gasoline as you will need to
operate your generator for 72
hours and store the gasoline
away from any source that may
produce heat or a spark.
Condominium owners should
note that state law forbids
bringing gasoline into a multi-
residential unit, and that using a
generator on a balcony is not
advisable because deadly car-
bon monoxide fumes could
seep back in through an open-
ing in the balcony door.
Create a disaster survival
kit. Each member of your fami-


ly including pets should
have their own survival kit that
includes water, food, extra med-
ications, flashlight and batter-
ies, photos of other family
members, contact numbers,
cash and/or credit cards and a
change of clothes.
For more tips or to download
the Hurricane Toolkit or check-
list, visit www.fldfs.com and
click on "Hurricane Season
2006" or call the Department of
Financial Services' Consumer
Services Helpline at 1-800-342-

FCAT scores frustrate and exhilarate


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING This year's
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores have
just been released.
To paraphrase Charles
Dickens, the results are the best
of news and the worst of news.
There are individual schools
that show tremendous improve-
ment, yet the district as a whole
still lags behind the state, and
the state remains well behind
national levels. -
For example, fourth-graders
across the state lost ground in
reading. And at the state level
only 46 percent of eighth-
graders. 40 percent of ninth-
graders and 32 percent of 10th-
graders are reading at grade
level.
,In Highlands County the'
numbers are even worse. Onl\
40 percent of eighth-graders. 34
percent of ninth-graders and 27
percent of 10th-graders are
reading at grade level.
In other ords, reading profi-
ciency is dropping as students
progress through the system.
By the 10th grade in
Highlands County, less than a
third of the students can read at
grade level.
Just as disturbing, given that
science and technology are a
major focus for the state's
future economy, are the FCAT
science scores.
Science is tested at the fifth,
eighth, and 11llth grades.
This year, at the state level,
35 percent of fifth-graders, 32
percent of eighth-graders, and
35 percent of 11.th-graders per-
formed at grade level.
Highlands County students


did not do quite as well.
Only 30 percent of fifth-
graders, 28 percent of eighth-
graders, and 34 percent of 11th-
graders are at grade level.
That means close to two-
thirds of the students were not
at grade level in science. Worse,
not one 11th-grader in the state
* scored a 5, the top level, on the
science test.
Math scores showed better
progress, but the numbers are
still disappointing.
For every advance at the dis-
trict level, there, was a loss.
For example, third-graders
continued to. : show. steady,
improvement. From 66 percent
performing at grade level in
2005 to 69 percent this year.
But fifth-graders remained
static at 49 percent over two
years, and. fourth-graders
slipped back, a percentage point
to 60 percent: performing at
grade level this ear.
Onl\ at the 10th-grade level
:does the district do better than
the state; 67 percent of
Highlands County students per-
formed at grade level versus 65
percent at the state level.
But that still means only two-
thirds of 10th-graders are profi-
cient in math at their grade
level.
There were points of light
within all the dark news.
For example, Park
Elementary School, which has
been fighting back for years,
has gained traction and shown
remarkable progress.
Third-graders vaulted for-
ward; 76 percent of them are
reading at grade level, as
opposed to just 52 percent of

them doing so last year.
Their math improvement is
just as exciting, 61 percent per-
forming at grade level this year,
as opposed to only 48 percent
last year.
Fred Wild Elementary
School also showed a solid
advance in third-grade math.
Seventy-nine percent of its stu-
dents performed at grade level
this year as opposed to only 62
percent last year.
All four middle schools show
improvements in sixth-grade
reading and math scores, but
only Sebring Middle School
showed improvements in both
- at the eighth-grade level.
Becky Fleck, coordinator of
the management information
systems department, wants peo-
ple to remember that the FCAT
tests different groups of stu-
dents each year. That is, a third
grade one year is not the same
the next. That means comparing
one year to another has limited
usefulness. A general trend,
reflecting teaching and admin-
istration practices, can be dis-
cerned over time, but that typi-
cally takes years to develop.
One way of tracking children.
referred to as cohorts
because they travel through
time together is to put subse-
quent years together. That way
it is possible to see if the same
group of students are improving
over time.
For example, 61 percent of
the students who were freshmen
at Sebring High School in 2005
were performing at grade level
in math. Sixty-eight percent of
the same group were working at
grade level in 2006, an increase
of seven percent.


However, underscoring the
difficulties facing educators,
parents and students, that sane
class lost five percentage points
in reading at the same time.

initial certification, continued
inservice training members also
will be necessary.
CERT training teaches peo-
ple to do many things, the first
of which is to identify the types
of hazards most likely to affect
their homes and communities.
"The most likely hazards
here are high wind damage
from tornados, hurricanes and
tropical storms; wildfire evacu-
ations; and fresh water inland
flooding," Colby said. "Low
water crossings are a hidden
danger for people who use them
frequently and are unsuspect-
ing."
He explained that 12 inches
of rain in .Highlands County
would cause havoc that people
here haj\ ne\er seen.

ment toward quality care.
Patients aren't billed for it's
use.
"It doesn't change our surgi-
cal technique," Beissinger said,'
explaining that Stryker is an
enhancement in joint replace-
ment surgery, not a new way of
performing them. -

JOE SLIVA, associate CERT instructor


said.
A video showed live footage
of people driving during times
of fresh water inland flooding.
People repeatedly made wrong
choices, putting themselves and
others in danger. It was obvious
that people do not know instinc-
tively how to respond under
such a situation and that often
they respond in exactly the
opposite of what would be
deemed safe practice often
even ignoring barricades.
"CERT members are able to
man barricades and assist vic-
tims without endangering them-
selves," Colby said. "And dur-
ing Hurricane Floyd in North
Carolina, they found that

they're all doing very well,"
Alvarez said.
And, at $25,000 to $50,000
for total knee replacements:
(prosthetic type and duration of
post-operative hospitalization),
the doctors are optimistic that,
from a financial standpoint, the
patients will fare better.
"The trick of knee replace-
ment is alignment," Sonni said.
"If one joint is inside or outside'
it will wear out faster."
Without Stryker, inaccurate,
replacements are more probable
and misaligned joints can fail
within five years.

Park and associate CERT

people need to have good judg-

"If you get hurt you become
part of the problem," he said.
"People need to have the sense.
to know when they aren't capa-
ble of doing something."
These examples are only a
smidgen of what CERT trainees
will learn.
"Through training, they
demonstrate commitment and'
acquire a basic post-disaster
skill set," Colby said.

ing more about CERT or attend-

more the lifespan of the
majority of the population that

Sonni said it might be anoth-
er 15-20 years before this tech-
nology is improved upon.
Harding said FHHD is the
only facility in the region with
this technology and it's the hos-
pital's hope that it becomes a
referral center for hip and knee
joint replacements.
"There's a certain amount of
out-migration going on in
orthopedics,". he said, noting
that this machine might help to
counter that.
Referring to Alvarez's analo-
gy, Harding posed the rhetorical
question, "You wouldn't have

Continued from 1A

Highlands 'Regional, for a
long time, was Highlands
County's premier hospital,
Mahaffey said, but it was
caught off guard when Florida
Hospital built its facility, and
got forgotten by corporate offi-
cers.
He's out to change that.
Good service
First, Mahaffey said any
patient- who has a comment,
good or bad, his door is open
and his phone on 471-5800.
"I need to hear (it)," he said.
Mahaffey plans to train every
employee on guest relations,
have nurses spend more time
getting to know their patients,
and work with physicians to
make sure they support the hos-
pital.
"People don't wake up in the
morning and say, 'Goody, I'm
going to the hospital,' "
Mahaffey said.
However. thev come to hos-
pitals for nursing care and want
to, be served by a happy staff
who cares about them. If staff
doesn't treat patients well,'
patients don't return.
"I love what I do," Mahaffey
said. "People should like what


they do. It becomes infectious.
People do a better job when
they all work together."
He wants nurses to look pro-
fessional in white uniforms,
and feel 100 percent ready for
each day. They worlk 12- to 13-
hour days, but he wants them to
do their best in eight, then go
home to their families.
"Family has to be No. 1," he
said. "The job can be second or
third. It's the only way."
Bringing staff
Every location has problems
hiring people to move in, he
said, but that's not an excuse for
not finding good people. To get
more nursing professionals, he
plans to provide moving
allowances and investigate all
possible housing options.
"If I have to go and build a
house myself, that's what I'll go
out and do," Mahaffey said.
Expanding out
Mahaffey said people also
will see a whole new emer-
gency r6om.
He has yet to meet with
county commissioners, the hos-
pital district: board, or other
local officials about plans for
the Sebring; Parkway or to
expand the hospital. Still, the
hospital has to grow, he said,
and if adjacent land is for sale,
he wants it.

Lessons


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It started with
one teacher, her class, and one
National Guardsman.
Jennifer Brinling teaches
kindergarten at Woodlawn
Elementary School and her
brother is Spc. Ryan M. Drury.
After he left Avon Park for Iraq,
Brinling had her class draw pic-
tures and write messages to
Drury, knowing that pictures
and a "Hi," or "Be safe" would
bring a smile not only to her
brother's face, but to everyone
he shared it with.
"Ryan loved receiving and
sharing those. It cheered every-
one up through the holidays
when they were down. He said
it felt 'great that somebody back
home was thinking of them. He
was amazed at how well they
wrote and how grown up they
seemed in their letters, and they
were an inspiration to him,"
Brinling said.
Principal Kaye Bowers
decided Woodlawn should
adopt Ryan as their school's
soldier. In addition, other
employee's soldiers were
adopted. Data Operator Karen
McClelland's nephew Spc.
Kenneth Jordan Dean was one.
"Lots of kids his age are in
our family. I'm really proud of
him, miss him and hope he
comes back safely,"
McClelland said.
Cafeteria baker Hazel
Duncan's son Anthony Love
was another soldier adopted.
"Now he's back in Georgia.
and is fine. He was so thankful
for this effort and still has all
their mail. When he came here
for a visit, he thanked the kids
and teachers. He is a blessing 6

Brown said.

Sunny's

Improvement

Program
Finally, I've found my
motivation for making the
changes in my lifestyle that I
need to be making to get
healthier. I am hoping that
some of you will join me in
this effort, and together we
will become more (well,
actually less) of the people
we want to be next year.
Drop me a line on my e-mail
and let me know that you're
with me on this project.
A couple of years ago, a
group of us got together and
supported each other in our
weight loss and lifestyle
changes. At that time, I lost
more than 25 pounds. As
most ofus do when we don't
make it a lifetime change, I
gained the weight back over
the next two years. I can
wish I hadn't fed myself so
well, but that doesn't change
the fact that I put every
spoonful back into my body
all by myself.
Honestly? When I was
losing the weight, I didn't
kid myself that I could eat
what I wanted at each meal
because the next meal I
would eat less. Each meal
became a victory in over-
coming my self-destruction.
My other problem with a
healthy lifestyle? Finding
physical activities that I
want to do more than once
this decade. I love dancing,
swimming, ice skating, yoga
and reading. Guess which
activity I do the most? I
have all the excuses ready
for why I can't do the things
I enjoy and end up, as
always, snuggled up with
that good book I've been
dying to read. Truer words
may have never been writ-
ten.
While listening to
Delilah's show tonight
(radiodelilah.com), I heard
an ad for "Steps To A
Healthier Florida" at mys-
teps.org/default.htm. This
Web site is funded by a
grant for Hillsborough and
Pinellas counties. Because I
previously lived in Temple
Terrace, I followed the
Hillsborough link first.
Staggering statistics I found
on
mysteps.org/relatedlinks.htm
is "this year, in the United
States, more than 1.4 million
new cases of cancer will be
diagnosed and over 500,000
will die from cancer. Of
these 500,000 deaths, 30-7,0
percent will be related to,
diet. People who eat five or
more servings of fruits and
vegetables daily have half
the risk of developing cancer
as those who only eat one or
two servings a day."
So, what are we going to
do? Walking five more min-
utes a day is a great way to
start getting healthier, build-
ing up to 30 minutes a day.
Write down and post your
Improvement Program.
Support the local citrus and
agricultural industries by
eating more vegetables and
fruit. Pray. Stay hydrated.
Keep moving and motivated.
Become someone's
Improvement Program part-
ner. Eliminate firsthand
smoke. Smile at someone
new. Hug at least five
friends a day.

Jack Ingerick is a Woodlawn
Elementary School crossing
guard who smiles and waves ...
and feels he always gets a lot

Inspector Lamar Forbes with the
Sebring Police Department is Ingerick's
boss and had several good things to say
about him.
"He likes kids and is a father figure
to them, faithfully showing up come

Ingerick enjoys seeing people, he said, while

'The Da


Vinci Code'


book better than movie


Since its' release in 2003,
Dan Brown's novel "'The Da
Vinci Code" has spent a record
160 weeks on The New York
Times best-seller list. It has sold
43 million copies worldwide
and has been translated into
more than 40 languages.
This was good.
Good enough, in fact, to war-
rant interest from Academy
Award regulars Ron Howard
and Tom Hanks. The director
and star were booked, a mas-
sive budget was allotted and a
May release date was circled.
Add to the equation the
thriller's controversial, theolog-
ical content and the film's suc-
cess, was so assured it was
almost unfair. Christians, and
non-Christians would line up
around the block to be either
amazed or insulted, but they
would undoubtedly watch.
Seemingly unbeknownst to
Howard, the translation that
truly mattered was the one from
book to screen. Unlike the "rose
line" (or prime meridian) so
central to the film's plot, the
path was not conspicuous and
straight.
Although the performances
are somewhat pedestrian, the
casting is brilliant, and the film
feels promising for the first 30'
minutes. Hanks plays Robert
Langdon, a traveling professor
who is introduced at his semi-
nar in Paris as an expert in reli-
gious symbology. While sign-
ing books, he is accosted by a
French agent who escorts him
to the Louvre where one of his
contemporaries has been mur-

'The Da Vinci Code'
gets




dered. Upon investigating the
body, Langdon meets the vic-
tim's granddaughter and gov-
ernment code-cracker Sophie
Neveu, played by French
actress Audrey Tautou. Her
grandfather lies splayed on the
ground in the configuration of
Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man with
an enigmatic pentacle drawn in
blood on his chest. Neveu
secretly informs Langdon via


cell-phone message that he is
considered to be the prime' sus-
pect and must escape.
So begins the murder/mys-
tery that sends the two on their
European scavenger hunt.
As Langdon and Neveu romp
through Paris pursued by
French police and an albino
monk, they seek sanctuary at
"the mansion of Sir Leigh
Teabing (Ian McKellen).
Teabing is an expert on grail
history, and more than happy to
,enlighten our heroes and the
audience with his hypothesis:
The holy grail is not the literal
cup of Christ, but the bloodline
of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
Brown's book pulls in the
reader and his historical argu-
ments are set in the frame of a
suspense novel. The film suf-
fers from an almost complete
reversal of this strategy. By
emphasizing the adventure, the
compelling historical tidbits
and flashbacks feel like boring
lectures. As if aware of this,
Howard jumps from several of
these Da Vinci lessons to sud-
den action that will make you
jump. Unfortunately, it only


works because we've been
lulled to sleep by the high-brow
Power Point presentations.
To those, seeking a faithful
rendition of the novel, the adap-
tation is fairly accurate. The
understated romance between
Langdon and Neveu is eliminat-
ed, and some irrelevant scenes
and characters have been dis-
solved.
For anyone interested in the
theory of the Christ/Magdalene
bloodline who hasn't read the
book, start there. Regardless of
whether you believe the idea
has merit or-is a load of horse-
feathers, it may invigorate your
faith or open your eyes.
The movie will close them.

A frown takes more effort than a smile


Mark Twain said, "A smile is
understood in all languages.'" I
have learned this true. I also
have learned that a frown is
understood in all languages. A
smile can lift a person's spirit
and encourage others, but no
one is encouraged by a frown. I
understand that it also takes less
facial muscles to smile than to
frown. Frowns can make
unwanted wrinkles in your face.
The dictionary states,' "A
frown is to contract the brow as
in displeasure or concentration;
to look on with distaste or dis-
approval. A facial expression in
which the corners of the mouth
turn downward, indicating dis-
pleasure." A frown quickly
shows displeasure or negative
reaction. You can speak without
a word by using a smile or a
frown. Example: "How was


your day?" No need
to use words just a


f


facial expression of a j
smile or a frown will j,
give the answer. :.
Also, I have learned '
that a frown is a natu- ,
ral reaction given
without much prac-
tice, but a smile is a
conscious reaction VER
from within. The spin
same dictionary
states, "A smile is a VM
facial expression in -
which the corners of Verlor
the mouth turn "-"
upward, indicating
pleasure."
Now let me ask you a ques-
tion, which do you prefer, a
frown or a smile? Notice that
when you leave a person who
smiles you are refreshed, but


.




LONG'S
TUAL
AMIN
SCarrell


when you leave a
person who frowns
you are resentful.
This means that a
smile or a frown can
be contagious and
quickly effect others.
So when you see
someone without a
smile, give them one
of yours. When you
see someone 'with a
frown make an effort
to see it change into a
smile. Anyone can be
a negative person,
but it requires charac-
ter to become a posi-


tive person who refreshes oth-
ers.
Paul stated, "I have
learned...to be content,"
Philippians 4:11. Notice that he
was not always a contented per-


son but he learned to be content.
Being content is not normal, but
it is a choice. Each day you
must choose to be content.
One more question, how -
many contented Christians do
you know? It is important for .
Christians to show on their
faces what is in their hearts. The
world needs to see something in
our lives they do not have.
What will people see on our
faces this week, a smile or a
frown? Practice it now, smile,
see it did not hurt you.
Now let's put on our happy
faces and go tell Oxford. You
will be glad you did.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING Graduating
seniors weren't the only people
waving a fond farewell to their
schools this spring.
Senior educators, and the
people who have long support-
ed them, waved a fond farewell
too 57 in all; combined,
they've given Highlands
County 1,406 years of service.
Their leave has been bitter-
sweet, for many of these indi-
viduals were fixtures in their
schools or departments. Those
wishing them well wonder how
they will ever be replaced.
And not just the, well known
teachers like 'Sandra White,
who taught chorus at Sebring
High School, and Sara
Hernandez, who taught busi-
ness education at Lake Placid
High School. They both have
been honored as teacher of the
year for their schools. White
was nominated for the Judge
Kelly Champion of Children
award.
Everyone knows how much
they and the other teachers will
be missed.
There are wonderful, hard
working people behind the
scenes who will be just as hard
to replace. People who have
kept the schools running, the
supplies coming, and the stu-
dents fed..
Take Nina Adams, Coordi-
nator Rodney Hollinger's right
hand in the district's depart-
ment of student services. She is
leaving after 36 years. Or Gail
Umperovitch in accounts pay-.
able with 31 years of service, or
Mary Sherrill Mathews who
has worked asa secreiarl in
exceptional student education


since 1968. She was responsi-
ble for seeing that students'
records were correctly recorded
and filed away. As for her
retirement, "We have no plans
at the moment," she said.
Or take Susan Evans who
drove a bus for 20 years. Or
Ozzie Smith who has kept the
busses rolling since 1989. Or
Carolyn Randall who has been
getting students back and forth
from school safely since 1979.
She was talked into her job by
her 'sister-in-law and loved
every day of it. "I drove the spe-
cial needs kids, and that was
great," she said.
Take Mary H. Williams who
cooked for 24 years. Or Linda
Graf who has been cooking and
baking for Highlands County
children for 32 years. She start-
ed to work in school kitchens
as a substitute when her son
was in kindergarten now
he's 40 years old. As for how
she will spend her retirement,
Graf isn't too sure yet, but she
thinks she might work as a vol-
unteer in a nursing home.
Despite the loss of experi-
enced personnel, the rhythm of
life beats on. 4
For example, Graf's daughter
Lorrie Beerbower carnies on in
her footsteps. She manages
Park Elementary School's
kitchen.
Here is the list of retiring
personnel:

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Sara Hernandez was among the 57 retiring school district employees who were recognized for their hard
work Tuesday evening by Wally Cox, school superintendent, and members of the school board.
Hernandez has been teaching since 1978. She was named teacher of the year at Lake Placid High School
in 2006 for her work teaching business education. She created a student bank, an actual lending and sav-
ing institution, run by students during lunch time.

Bird watching and the

great brown pelican

bellican,
He can hold in
his .beak enough food for a
week- "' ', :
And I wonder just how in the
hellican
Limerick by Dixie Lanier
Merritt-.
I'm not sure why the pelican
intrigues me, but it has ever.
since my mother recited that
limerick to me when I was a
child. Squirrels hold acorns in
their cheeks, kangaroos carry
their young in a belly pouch,
but pelicans hold fish in their
beak:
How does it feel to hold a
bunch of fish 'in your mouth?
Does it tickle? It probably feels
pretty good to that majestic
bird.
On a recent trip to Daytona
Beach my grandchildren and I
sat on the sand, they in skimpy
bathing suits and I in jeans and
shirt topped by my large
brimmed sun hat, while 'we
watched the brown pelicans
come and go.
Pelicans are large birds: three
feet tall, with a six-foot
wingspan, and yet weigh only a
little over 20 pounds when full
grown, because they have air in
their bones. This also makes ,it
impossible for them to sub-
mbrge themselves in water,
which is why they must sky
dive to catch fish.
They fly just above the
water, looking for schools of
the tiny fish we humans don't
eat, and then soar up into the
sky, only to dive back down
again from as much as 60 feet
plunging their bills as deeply as
possible. After filling their
pouch with water and fish,
they'll float gently on the white
caps and allow the water to
drain off before swallowing the
fish left behind. Sometimes a
few fish drain off too, but the
friendly sea gull is usually close
by, sometimes even riding on
the pelican's back, so he can be.
available to grab off those
excess morsels before they -hit
the water and swim away.
Pelicans don't walk on dry
land so much 'as waddle,
because of their large webbed
feet, which are invaluable for
moving about on top of the
water. When they meet a friend,
they puff out their pouches,
point their bills to the sky, and
shake their heads from side to
side. They seem to be saying,
"Hello, how's the fishing
today?"
There are two types of peli-
can. The brown species live


A SAYS near the ocean in
ftOllo places such as
Daytona Beach,
*. Ryan where we spent a
delightful after-
noon. During the
mating season, the
males can be seen dancing,
bobbing up and down, and'
showing off in order lto catch
the eye of their lady love.
Something like the young
men we see on the same beach-
es during Spring Break.
Once a mate has been cho-
sen, the female will dig out a
simple nest by revolving her
body in the sand until, it's the.
right depth and width. Then
she'll settle into it and begin
laying her eggs.
The white pelican is a little
larger than the brown, species
and can be found inland near
lakes. They build their nests in
short trees, which are usually
crowded with other pelicans,
sort of New York tenement
style.
Pelicans tend to steal twigs
and other nest building supplies
from each other, so the male
and female must take turns
going for food while they're
waiting for the eggs to hatch.
The adults fly in flocks, but
,young pelicans gather together
in pods, and I found it interest-
ing that no adult pelican will
care for any babies that are not
their own.
Pelicans have been in exis,
tence for thousands of years,
without changing in appear-
ance. The fact that they've been
around for so long is not sur-
prising, since they have no nat-
ural enemies and as a result
have no sense of fear.
In fact, these birds will often
accompany fishermen on their
trips out to sea. All that is nec-
essary to keep them coming
back is to toss them a fish now
and then.
Many stories have been told
of friendships developing
between pelicans and fisher-
men, although I doubt they can
be domesticated; I mean the
.birds, not the men.
After the trip to Daytona, to
watch the brown pelican, and
reading many books on the sub-
ject, I'm more curious than
ever.
Maybe next year when the
grandchildren come to visit,
we'll take a trip to the
Everglades to spend an after-
"noon studying the habits of the
white species, because the peli-
can is indeed a wonderful and
fascinating bird.

dent and a contributing colum-

Tips for r
Parents are the most power-
ful influence in preventing gang
membership, drug use and other
risky behaviors in their teens.
Be involved in your teen's life
and staying alert to signs and
symptoms of risky behavior
you can help your teen seek out
positive relationships and stay
away from gangs and drugs.
Specific ways to help are:
M Talk to your teen about the
dangers of gangs and drugs.
Explain to your child that he
or she should not:
* Associate with gang mem-
bers.
* Attend parties or social
events sponsored by gangs.
* Use hand signs, symbols or
language that is meaningful to
gangs.
M Intentionally wear clothing,
including specific colors, which
may have meaning to gangs in
your area.
Monitor your teen
Know who your teen's
friends and meet their parents.
Know where your teen is and
what he/she is doing during
unsupervised time. Set clear
rules about what teens are
allowed to do, where they are
allowed, to go and who they are
allowed to go with. If your teen
has a cell phone, have him/her
check in periodically with you,

Highlands Hammock State
Park is not the friendly neigh-
bor that they would try to make
you believe.
On County Road 635 there is
not a single road going east or
west for over a seven-mile
stretch from State Road 66. to
Hammock Road, County Road
634. There are more than 700
people depending on this road..
There used to be a count\ road
about half way, Vaughn Road,
that could have been used in an
emergency, but, the state park
but up a barricade. What did
the county get in return?
I do not use the path along
Hammock Road but I enjoy
seeing families walking with
their children, groups bicy-
cling, and people rollerblading.
But where the path enters the
state park I'm told the state
park made them put the path
right next to the road very
stupid and dangerous.
About six years ago a 16-
year-old girl camping in the
park was hit and killed walking
on the side of the road inside of
the park by a driver using CR
634. The person responsible for
putting the path right next to
the road should be fired and
neyer be able to hold any kind
of government job. It's not a
case of what could happen; it
already has.
Who authorized putting
speed bumps on a county road?
For those who do not know, the
road going into the state park is
actually County Road 634.
You do not have to pay to go
through the state park. As you
go west on Hammock Road
you see a big sign saying CR
635 to the south, but nowhere
do you see a sign telling you
that the road through the state
park is County Road 634. This
is a short cut to Zolfo Springs.
If many more people started
using that road I believe the
park would be more willing to
trade for a thin strip of land
along the east edge of the park.
In case of a big fire in the
state park more than 700 peo-
ple. could be trapped. A little
over one month ago, a brush
fire on the east side of 635 had
the. road blocked with fire
fighting equipment. People had
to go back to Hammock Road
then east to U.S. 27 then south
to State Road 66 and than west

to 634 a trip of more than 25
miles as there is no better way:
to get around this blockage .
If the park continues to be'
stubborn, put up signs letting,
people know that it is OK to go
through the park. Encourage
every one to use the short cut to
U.S.. 17 and Tamp'a, then see
how long before they beg you
to take a thin strip of land in
exchange for the road through
the park.
At most state parks that I've

steps immediately .to move that
dangerous path away from the

Memorial Day must be com-
memorated.
Soldiers in uniform, a 21-
gun salute, bugles playing
"Taps" ... these are special
ways we honor a military veter-
an at their funeral. The gunfire
salute is an ancient ceremony
that was adopted in 1875.
"Taps" was composed in Camp
Harrison's Landing in 1862 to
replace "Tattoo." Volleys over
the grave originated from an
army custom of halting battle
to remove the dead from the
battlefield; once each army


cleared its dead, three volleys
were fired to indicate they were
ready to resume battle. This
remains a meaningful ritual
today, symbolizing the battle of
life is over for the person who
has died, but the battle of life
must continue for those living.
Changing the date merely to
create three-day weekends has
undermined the very meaning
of the day. Sacrifice is mean-
ingless without remembrance.
The citizens of America owe
their freedom to all who have
given their lives for us, to be
"free." It only takes a minute to
say "thank you" to those who
gave their lives so I can have
mine.
I want to tell you a true story.
My husband (who was in the
Korean Conflict) and I were in
Winn Dixie, he was in his VFW
uniform. This man came in and
saw my husband and he saluted
him. This only took a second,
but I want to tell you this
brought tears to my eyes.
GI's do not choose where
they serve or what foreign pol-.
icy they must enforce. No
American death is too insignif-
icant to remember when that
life was lost.
Perhaps this most profound
tribute of all was made on the
first National Memorial Day
observance in May 1868 by
then General James A. Garfield
when he said, "They summed
up, and perfected, by one'
supreme act, the highest virtues
of men and citizens. For love of
country they accepted death,
and thus resolved all doubts
and made immortal their patri-
otism and virtue."

Editor:
It is indeed a sad state of
affairs that President Bush's.
credibility is at such a low ebb.
It is tragic that the working
American people are the vic-
tims of the policies resulting in
such shaky credibility. The fact
is that his administration has
done nothing to ,restrict the
flow of illegal aliens into the
United States. for almost six
years.
In his first year, Congress
provided funds for 2,000 new
border patrolmen; he author-
ized 200. It was a common
everyday event that. illegals
would- be apprehended,
"booked," then released into
the United States, never to be
seen again. Those who were
sent back across the border
would be back the next day or
two, so it was ironic when the
president stated that 6,000 ille-


,t I.y,' v.v,, ,, gals were caught everyday.
f5jects to That number is closer to 2,000
JjecLs to maybe, because the. same ille-
conduct. gals were caught three or four
times until they succeetled in

across.
The president's statement
that illegals were doing jobs
that Americans won't do was a
basic lie, because as illegals,
they were paid maybe $2 an
hour, which Americans won't
tolerate. Now he says ... "jobs
Americans don't do," a slight
variation, because he knew
"won't do" was a lie.
By the way, have you
noticed that the number of ille-
gals discussed today is 12 mil-
lion? Last month the figure was
20 million. Did 8 million go
back home?
Also, it is contentious that
those in Congress trying to pass
a Reform Immigration Bill
keep talking about immigrants,
where the issue is illegal aliens.
The fact that they have com-
mitted anywhere from one to
six felonies stealing documents
(ID theft) or using fake docu-
ments has been dismissed. The
Senate even passed an amend-
ment to allow those felons to be
pardoned and be allowed to
draw on past Social Security
payments. How many
American felons do you know
are "pardoned," then allowed to
draw on Social Security they
did not earn?
The reason the Senate is so
desperate to pass an immigra-
tion bill is that 80 percent of the
American people (the victims
of this farce) fault the
Republican Congress for the
jobs lost, for lower wages and
no health care for "regular peo-
ple." The president and
Congress has stalled for nearly
six years doing nothing to ease.
the plight of American workers,
while CEOs and executives
reaped huge profits and golden
(platinum) ,parachutes at the
expense of millions of laid-off


workers.
The gas crisis is only the lat-
est example of the heartless
impoverishing measures the
president and Congress have
foisted upon the American
workers. When the conserva-
tives state that the government
cannot do anything about gas
price increases, that is a lie,
also. Guess who is in charge of
that? Vice President Cheney,
who has his investments in
"blind trusts," has a hand in
what happens to oil policies.
He even has his own secret oil
executive committee, that
writes the policies for
Congress. Even after four years
of litigation, we still do not
know who the committee mem-
bers are.
Continuing with the immi-
gration issue. Not only do the
illegals do the jobs for less than
the minimum wage, they also
displace workers earning $15
to $25 an hour, like carpenters,
plumbers, apprentice electri-
cians, concrete workers, etc.
Those tradesmen are forced to
work for $8 an hour or be
replaced; they have families to
support, too. If that isn't
enough, the president claims
that the United States needs
foreign professionals to fill
nurse, doctor, pharmacy,
accountant and computer posi-
"tions. Why empty positions?
Because American corpora-
tions refuse to pay the ,prevail-
ing wage for those professions.
Nurses leave the hospitals
because the administration caps
Salaries, increases patient ratios
and adds extra duties, plus
more hours a day. Doctors are
supplanted with practitioners,
and restricted on compensa-
tion. The hospitals and medical
centers receive a greater per-
centage of funds from
Medicare, Medicaid and insur-
ance companies for medical
services.


... Another example how
even small businesses are
harmed by foreign labor and
businesses is the U.S. H1B
visa. Foreign businesses are
able to compete with American
small businesses with their
cheap labor. The American
businesses cannot compete
because they pay the prevailing
wage unless they, too, out-'
source their labor. In fact, the
Senate is about to expand the
H1B Visa Program, which will
squeeze out small business
here, or they will outsource,
because it is a matter of sur-
vival.
First, it was illegal workers,
then outsourcing of jobs, then
cheaper foreign professionals,
and now H1B visas for foreign
businesses to compete with our
small businesses. These are but
a few examples of how the
immigration crisis has impact-
ed the American worker and
consumer. Our government is
impoverishing our middle
class, or about'70 percent of the
people in this country. What is
most shocking of all is that
most of the American public is
not tuned in, is too busy surviv-
iog from paycheck to pay-
check, or has just given up.
If President Bush's credibili-
ty is at such a low ebb, how can
that be? November will provide
some answers.

Remember to

thank veterans
Editor:
On Memorial Day, May 30,
we honor a special group of
Americans the ,men and
women who served our country
and who gave their lives in the
service of their country.
Since the first shots were
fired in the Revolutionary War,
more than one million


Americans have died in the
defense of our liberty and free-
dom. They are still dying for us
today, in the conflicts, to main-
tain a safe and free America.
In honoring them today, we
recognize and appreciate their
dedication, courage and sacri-
fices. We also celebrate the
freedom they gave us.
Let us never forget that these
people our husbands, moth-
ers, fathers, sons and daughters
- had the same dreams and
hopes that we have today, but
when called upon to defend our
freedom they put aside their
personal interests and answered
a higher calling.
In dying for our country,
they passed on a great legacy of
liberty and freedom. They also
passed on to all of us, a com-
mitment to preserve what they
died for. It is a commitment
that each and every one of us
must take a part in fulfilling, a
commitment to America, to
enjoy our freedoms guaranteed
by the Bill of Rights, today and
always.
In doing so, we will have
lived the dreams of the
founders of our country, those
Americans who defied cen-
turies of tyranny with their
Declaration of' Independence.
These documents are the roots
of our Great America and in
them we find the character of
America, which is a determina-
tion to be free and remain free..
Let us honor those today and
as we, the living, ,fulfill our
commitments as citizens of this
great country, we make
America a .living memorial to
their, dedication, courage and
sacrifice. How thankful we
should all be to the,\eterans
who by their sacrifices and
dedication allow us .to stand
proud and humble in our free
country. Bless the service men,
and women who are fighting
and dying today for this free-


dom. They have all earned our
respect and we should be forev-
er thankful for sacrifices to
keep our America free.
So let us pause, today and
every day, and say thanks each
in our own. way, for the free-
doms we enjoy every day in
our great country, America.
On Memorial Day, a group
of, members from the Lake
Placid VFW 3880 Post anrd"
Ladies and Men's Auxiliaries
will be visiting the veterans
who live at the Lake Placid
Health Care Center to pay their
respects and give them a big
thank you for their part in
obtaining our freedom that we
share and enjoy today. If you
get a chance to visit them and
say hello, I am sure they will
cherish your visit. Be proud to
be an American. I am, are you?
God bless America, land of
the free, home of the brave,
now and forever more.

Many help with

cemetery site

Editor:
Word that the latest official
siting of a new national veter-
ans cemetery % ill be less than
100 miles from the Heartland
, has come from the Veteran's
Administration on Friday. Ma.
19. The 466-acre cemetery
could be read\ for use, if
placed on a fast track, b) late -
2008. vets will be happy to.
hear. .
This action is in response to
the'fact that more than 400.000)
veterans li\ e \ thin 75 miles of
the area, h Inch is the fonuer


Hawkins Ranch in Sarasota
County,. located east of
Interstate 75 and bordered on
the north by State Road 72.
Aging World War II veterans
are driving demand for the new
spaces, according to the
Department of Veteran Affairs.
This is also time to recall
that Republican Congress-
woman Katherine Harris, with
family roots all over the south
central Florida area including
Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee and
Polk, which are part of her dis-
trict, has long promised to fight
for this and has now succeeded.
The new eastern Sarasota
County site was one of three in
the final selection process, but
the one that passed environ-
mental criteria. It is located
four miles from 1-75 giving
access to much of the state,
which now relies on Bay Pines
as its nearest cemetery for eli-
gible veterans and their spous-
es. Bay Pines' overcrowding
has limited new burials to cre-
mated ashes or remains.
Florida sites already in use
are also in St. Augustine,
Bushnell and Pensacola.
Selected with Sarasota are
new cemetery sites in
Jacksonville; Birmingham,
Ala.; Bakersfield, Calif.;
Philadelphia; and Columbia,
S.C.
This an important "conven-
ience for veterans and their
families and friends as well.
: Thanks to the entire Florida
SCongressional Delegation for
'the assistance offered.

Thor Log: Trekking through snow, rain, fog, and frogs


Each week, the News-Sun
will reprint a log by Thor
Knutson, hiking the Pacific
Crest Trail from Mexico 'to
Canada.
Monday, May 15
I carried 5 liters of water up
an 8,500-foot mountain yester-
day. No water until
Wrightwood.
Only place to camp last night
was the middle of the trail. Can
see snow on the next mountain
range.
Started hiking 6 a.m.; nine
miles to go. Cool day. Reached
town at 11 a.m.: Headache and
upset stomach.
Tuesday, May 16
Stayed with the Lopez's, who
let hikers stay for free in their
game room: Pool table, several
couches. Three other hikers
there.
Was ill most the night; feel
better. Washed clothes, bought
food, repacked. People ask if
the trail is safe: Yes, more so
than most towns.
Wednesday, May 17
Mrs. Lopez gave me a ride to
the trail. Started at 11 a.m.
Should have plenty of water for,
next few days.
Steep climb through snow:
3,000 feet in the first four miles'
Summit is 9,200 feet. This old
Florida boy can really feel the
altitude. Need to stop often and
suck air.
Just before reaching the top,
it started to thunder, lightning
and rain. Could see rain for
miles across the desert. Lasted
about two hours.
Near the top was an unusual
looking tree, with a sign: 1,500
years old. Took a picture.
At Little Jimmy Camp Site
near Little Jimmy Springs:
Fireplaces, tables, non-flushing
toilets, 7,500 feet, temperature
56 degrees and falling. Today is
384 miles.
Thursday, May 18
Had to detour: Mating season
for the yellow-legged frog.
Hiked 28.4 miles. "Odkey," a
lady in an RV hiked the trail in
1993, gave me two cans of cola,
"Whitey," male hiker from
Alaska, hiked the Appalachians
last year.
Camping at Ridge Top Vista:
-Desert view in one direction;
snowcapped mountains in the
other.
Dropped down to 6,600 feet;
will continue to drop for the
next two days. Nice day in the
70s,
Friday, May 19
Hiked 24 miles. Feet hurt.
Met three more hikers five in
camp.
A -loose rock or a mis-step
can cause problems. Hikers -,id
an older man fell along the river
with the high banks (300 feet),
and died. When he didn't show
up, his wife hiking ahead went
looking. Found him at the bot-
tom' ofthe cliff.
About 18 miles. into AuNoj


Dulce, where I'll pick up new
maps and supplies.
Saturday, May 20
At 2 a.m., some young peo-


pie roasting hot dogs woke me
up. Couldn't sleep, so I joined
them.
Started hiking 6 a.m., 15
minutes after the others. Sunny


day, but three hours in,
descended into cold, moist
clouds, no sun, until an hour
before Agua Dulce.
Very small town with a mod-


ern grocery and deli. Had a
hitching post with three horses
tied to it.
Was surprised to see
Hairman (from Belgium) sitting


outside having lunch. Spent
about four hours eating, talking
with him. He didn't go back for
the kick-off. Surprised I'm only
a day behind him.

"We've had some players come through
here, have an outstanding two-game series
and really increase their value."
Most players of this caliber are used to
the scrutiny. They've met the scouts and
have seen the flashbulbs all over the
Sunshine State. It's still an opportunity to
see how they measure up to the best the
area has to offer.
The infielders have to learn on the fly
how different players react and play the
game. At one point, Boca Raton-Spanish
River's third baseman Taylor Hilliard
turned to his teammate to introduce him-
self on the field. Lake Mary's D.J. Bissell
shook his hand, smacked him on the
shoulder with his glove, and seamlessly
fielded a grounder to his'left.
A subtle display of attitude, talent and
execution, none of which went unnoticed.

STRANGE
Continued from 1E
buckle down real hard on that.
I'm going to have to," he said,
adding that he's probably going
to major in sports management
or business management.
Fire baseball coach Jason
Beck and basketball coach John
Dunlap both said that Strange's
non-athletic attributes were as
important as anything he's done
with a ball or bat in his hand.
"He's just a lanky second
baseman that I thought would
fit well into our program and
he's just an awesome kid,
which was the main thing we
were looking for," Beck said.
"He's got somb speed and he
reminds me of Johnny Damon
the way he slaps the ball, but I
thought he fit in good as a per-
son, which is the main thing for
us."
"We're looking for character
and quality young men first and
foremost, and he fit that part
right away," Dunlap said.
"The first thing is how he
handles himself eye contact,
strong handshake, speaking
well then, obviously, his
skills. He can find a lot of dif-,


ferent ways to score. He can
shoot it long drive past people
and finish, he can finish over
people, he's got good ball-han-
dling skills and sees the floor
well. That was all a secondary
part."
Both coaches also said that
Strange, who is 5-foot-11 and
weighs 150 pounds after a big
meal, will have to work hard to
add both size and strength to
handle to rigors of college ath-
letics.
"We're going to work him
out at second the whole fall and
try to get him to gain some
weight and to learn how to play,
the college game and live that
whole college season," Beck
said. "It's no longer 25 games.
We just finished this year at 70;
so it's very demanding.
"A lot of freshmen hit the
wall about game 40 and then
it's downhill the rest of the
year, so we try to prepare them.
It's going to take him a little
while to get used to it, but once
we .get him built up, he'll be
fine."
Strange said he knows the
challenge will be a. big one.
"That's a lot of games," he
said. 'I'm going to get stronger;
so I think I can handle it."
