didn't get very excited about it. Looking
for something of greater interest, he
found Vex Robotics.

it was ';bl e t[i-r heads," but he bought
it anyway.

he just let. the kit sit in the room.
"I gave them the green light to use it," he
said, "a few looked at it but didn't get
enthused. Then ; couple of kids emerged

'Charged' with

having a big heart
By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Joe Jenkins, 36, had an
unfortunate motivator when he agreed to
be jailed by the Muscular Dystrophy
Association during its upcoming annual
fund-raiser.
Diagnosed in mid-April with what is
most commonly known as Lou Gehrig's
Disease, or Amyotrophic Lateral
Sclerosis, the idea of helping raise
money for the cause of MD hit too close
to home to:say no.
The upcoming Lock-up at the
Kenilworth Lodge will be from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. Wednesday, June 14.
Melissa Pfeffer, prograth coordinator
for MDA, of Greater Sarasota (of which.:
Highlands County is a part), said the
money raised will go to local services to
provide wheelchairs, leg braces, voice
assistance devices, monthly clinic visits.
for members, support groups, and
research for treatments and cures.
"We recruited Joe over the phone,"
Pfeltc sid, "hut we didn't know he had.
ALS."
Jenkins is one of more than 300 fami-
lies served by MDA in the Greater
Sarasota area, she said.
MDA covers 43 different neuromus-
*culri Jiseases,. including ALS.
tPieellc e'.plained that for the lock-up
they call, people from lists of names
compiled over the years.
"We tell them there is a warrant out
for their arrest because they've been
accused of having a big heart," she said.
"If they don't want to participate we ask
for names of others who may be guilty of
having big hearts."
All who contribute names are placed
in our "witness protection program," she
laughed.


Great lots in
Sebring. Build your
dream home. Bring
offers!

Joshua, 9, Jennaveve, 4, and their dad Joe Jenkins pose for a picture at 'Burger King in
Sebring.


How to help
To contribute to Jenkins' bail fund, make checks payable to MDA and mail them
to the Highlands Hammock rangers' station at 5931 Hammock Rd., Sebring. 33872.
To help start a local ALS support group, call lenkins at 385-0151.
To be arrested for"having a big heart." call MDA at (941) 951-7890 for a par-
ticipation packet and information about how to register online.


Each "jail bird" picks time to be
arrested, booked-and detained for an
hour.
"We pick them up from their place of
business and drive them to the
Kenilworth and take them back when
they are released," she said.
Each arrested has to raise $2,000 bail
money to get out.
"The goal is to raise it ahead of time,"
she said. "But if not, we sentence them
to some hard phone time."
When asked how many people could
be held in "jail" at a time, Pfeffer said
they have had as many as 40 at once.


"At breakfast, lunch and afternoon
snack time we serve jail house grub pro-
vided by the Kenilworth," she said.
It was only. by happenstance that
Jenkins learned of the fund-raiser.
"I was at Liberty Home Health Care,
my wife's office, and they called to ask
if anyone there wanted to do it.- and I
said, 'Yes,'" Jenkins said.
ALS, he said, is not really MD. Even
though it is like other forms of MD, he
said it is set apart by its severity. Even-
so, it is represented by MDA.
"People can live a long time with
other types of MD though it is often


with a lot of pain," he said. "But not with
ALS."
The pain is certainly there, but muscle
deterioration in ALS progresses much
more quickly, giving patients an average
prognosis of two to five years, Jenkins
said.
Jenkins is a Florida native, born in
Stuart, raised in Broward County, and
part' of four generations of native
Floridians.
He and his wife of many years,
Sondra, have two children living at
home, Jennaveve, 4, and Josh, 9. They
live at Highlands Hammock State Park
where Jenkins has worked as a park
ranger for four years.
He also has a 17-year-old son, Alan,
living in Lakeland.
He said that the news of his disease
has been difficult for the family, espe-
cially Sondra and his oldest.
Jenkins. said that he told his wife
recently, "We can either go through this
holding hands, smiling and being happy,
or we can go through it holding hands,
crying and sobbing about it. 'I like the
first option,' I told her. And she agreed."
He said that it is easy to take life arid
health for granted, and that once upon a
time he did, thinking he was invincible.
Now he knows differently.
The only way he knows of to keep a
positive attitude i the midst of his situ-
ation is .to "dig down somewhere deep
and try to find a way to do what you
have to do."
One thing he hopesto do is form an
ALS support group in Highlands.
"'I would like to start a group here
because I've talked to three or four peo-
ple who have (ALS) in this area arid
think that having a support group would
make everybody feel better," he said.
His hope is that a group will emerge
for people dealing with this disease,
whether patients, family members, or
friends, so all will have others available
to relate to their situations.

and the kids make and grow
things to sell there," he said.
The culinary arts class makes
fresh baked goods; the horticul-
ture students grl\i plants, veg-
etables, trees, and 'flowers; the
woodcraft class makes picnic
tables, chairs, benches, and
other hand crafted items.
"And we have regular cus-
tomers," Zeegers said.
.The Academy also does a
community bicycle project.
The Avon Park Police
Department donated about 70
bikes to the Academy and the
auto mechanics class refur-
bished them, giving them back


to the community at Christmas
time like new.
"We worked on them year-
round and right before
Christmas we asked Avon
Elementary and Park
Elementary's guidance coun-
selors for names of people who
were in.need. I took the kids to
these houses and they gave the
bikes, to them. When they saw
the kids get the bikes and their
excitement, I could see the
expressions on the faces 0f both
the givers and receivers. That is
restorative justice," he said. -
Ten' bikes were also delivered
by Zeegers and.his students to

what they did," Zeegers said.
For another project, the culi-
nary arts and digital publishing
classes teamed up, the first
making cookies, and the latter
making cards.
"We took them to fire depart-
ments, the News-Sun, the police
station, nursing homes, Wells
Motor Company, Big T Tire,
and other places and delivered
them: So 'the kids are making
and giving and .feeling good
about themselves, building self
confidence," he said, "which is
.what restorative justice is all
about."
Additionally, the students
volunteered to help the
Emergency Operations Center
with hurricane. relief efforts
after the 2004 storms and have


accumulated 27,000 hours of
community service over the last
five years.
"This is the Department of
Juvenile Justice's top award,"
Zeegers explained. "It is one of
our bigrest accomplishments

to be associated with the people

SEBRING Sebring police
have charged the driver in a
SunTrust Bank robbery from
April last year.
SOn Tuesday, May 23. author-
ities in Sarasota found and
arrested Anthony Armstrong,
25, of Palmetto. on a bench
warrant charge of robbery for
his involvement in a heist on
April 26, 2005.
That day, at 1:52 p.m., a
Hispanic male about 40 years
old, in a striped polo shirt, blue
pants, white shoes and a red
cap, walked into the SunTrust
Bank at 3601 U.S. 27 North and
handed the teller a note


demanding money.
She filled a bag for him and
he apparently fled on foot.
Police combed the nearby Wal-
Mart parking area, along with
Highlands County Deputy
Sheriff Kris Ahler and blood-
hound Chief. They also looked
inside the store and checked
customers going in and out of
the store.
They did not find the man.
Sarasota County officials
found him by April 29, 2005.
James Garvey, 48, of Sarasota,
was arrested by Venice police
and implicated in a string of
armed robberies from Sarasota
to Punta Gorda.
Sebring Police Detective Sgt.


Curtis Hart said fingerprint evi-
dence helped link Garvey to the
robberies. He also had the same
method of operation: Using a
driver for quick escape and
wearing a different baseball cap
for each robbery.
Garvey reportedly has been
convicted in federal court and
sentenced to prison.
.Authotrilie ere able to link
Armstroig to Garvey.
According to Hart. Armstrong
didn't go into the bank at all,
but he allegedly implicated
himself.
Investigators don't think
Armstrong was involved in any
Florida west coast cases; just
the Sebring robbery.

a brush fire from Sunday after-
noon in Lake Placid.
Starting between 4-5 p.m.
Sunday, May 18, one anda half
acres of brush caught fire
between a Discount Auto Parts
store and Placid Arms
Apartments.
Lake Placid and Highlands
Park volunteer fire departments
responded. Both the Highlands

had to close U.S. 27 for 35-40,
minutes because of smoke.

Obituary policy-

Forest Area Supervisor Tim

ly "human-caused;" it wasn't
natural causes. Investigators are
still looking at it, he said.
Elder said the south part of
the county between State Road
70 and Glades County got sig-
nificant rain last week, but the
rest of the county is still dry.
The drought index, on a scale
from 400-800, is still 600.
He anticipates lightning

fires in the next few days, and
asks people to be very careful

It's geared toward career pro-
fessionals with a Bachelor's
degree or higher looking to
transition to teaching, Rego
said.
In 2006-2007, Florida will
need about 31,000 teachers, he
said. To help fill the need, the
state is offering a number of
incentives to people moving
into the field.
For example, President
George W. Bush signed the
"Higher 'Education
Reconciliation Act of 2)-5" on
Feb. 8, 2006. It made perma-
nent certain teacher loan for-
giveness provisions in the
Taxpayer-Teacher Protection
Act'of 2004.
The new law allows teachers
to gel student liain.- foiai\ eri up
to $1 .5 i11. for certain full-time
_,econd1i& s% .cho! math and sci-
ence teachers. It also-authorizes
up to $17,50'u forgiveness for
highl -qualified full-time ele-
nientiar and secondary school
Exceptional Student Education
teachers.


To quihlit\. a teacher must be
teaching children with disabili-
ties that correspond to the
teacher's special education
training and must also have
demonstrated knowledge and
teaching skills in the content
areas of the school curriculum
he or she is teaching.
In .addition to. that, teachers'
who began teaching after Oct.
30, 2004, may be eligible for up
to $5,000 loan forgiveness, so
long as they meet the definition
of a "highly-qualified" teacher.

Dancers pay tribute to the troops


By BRIANA WASHINGTON
News-Sun
AVON. PARK Can you
imagine 120 dancers, ranging in
age from 3-21 and at various
levels of expertise, on the South
Florida Community College
stage all at one time?
. That is just what Amy Sims,
owner of Step by Step Dance
Studio in Avon Park. plans to do
during a seven-minute dance
tribute to the troops. This dance
will be dedicated to the ones
who are serving now and the
ones who have served, risking
their lives to protect our free-
doms from being taken away.
During the Friday dance
recital, there will be 44 dance-


numbers in different styles
ranging from ballet, tap, jazz,
lyrical, hip-hop, and clogging.
Each class, from pre-dance to
level six, will do about three or
four numbers, according to
Sims. Two of those dance num-
bers will be fun ones one in
which the dads will dance with
their daughters and then, of
course, the troop tribute.
Sims said that moms who
weren't involved with the stu-
dio were bringing in pictures of
their husbands, who were
deployed. Those pictures will
be used for the slide show to be
shown during the recital. She
also said there have been a


number of people from the
community who have brought
in pictures of loved ones, from
all over the nation,, who are
serving or have served as well.
Sims came up with the idea
for the troop tribute because her
brother-in-law, Bain Sims, is a
sergeant in the National Guard
1-278 out of Tennessee. He has
been home since November.
Amy Sims wanted to pay a spe-
cial tribute to him and the other
soldiers past and present.
This is the 14th annual recital
that the studio has performed. It
will begin at 7 p.m. Friday in
the SFCC auditorium; general
admission will be $7.

ROBOTS
Continued from 1A

his students had in meeting his
challenge that he went to
Principal Pam Burnham.
"She was so impressed with
it that she bought another kit,"
he said.
Having two robots allowed
the class to engage in competi-
tions something being done
nationally with Vex at higher
levels, including college.
"It was great for the kids,"
Wenst said. "The first competi-
tion we had two teams and the
kids picked a driver for each.
Then we had a competition
where each student got to drive.
It was like a round-robin, allow-
ing every student an opportuni-
ty to control a robot."
Though Lego Mindstorms is
geared for primary schools,
Wenst believes that Vex pro-
vides elementary students an
interaction at a much higher
level.
"It promotes reading and fol-
lowing directions, problem
solving, math, and science -
all of which are basic to the
FCAT," he said.
Though locally he may be
virtually alone in this philoso-
phy, at a national level he is
supported and commended by
renowned technological experts
and educators.
Tom Atwood, editor and
chief of ROBOT magazine,
recently featured a review of
the Vex Robotics Design
System by MythBusters (a
Discovery Channel show).
Jamie Hyneman, Grant
Imahara, and Adam Savage,
were surprised by the product,
its versatility, and easy use.
"I was expecting to turn my
nose up at a do-it-yourself
robotics kit from Radio Shack,"
Hyneman wrote, "But guess
what? The VEX System kicks
butt."
Fellow MythBusters echoed
his sentiments..
Atwood, who recently
attended the 2006 Robotics


Education Symposium at
Georgetown University in
Washington DC, said that
teachers like Wenst are critical
to the advancement of technolo-
gy.
"Any robotics taking place
anywhere is worthy," he said,
"especially at an elementary
level."
He explained that our coun-
try is falling way behind others
in the area of technology and
that it's a very important issue.
"Introduction to robotics in
early education, elementary,
and middle school levels has
been shown to enable kids to
learn technical concepts much
earlier, even years earlier, than
ever thought. In middle and
high school it helps kids to
determine which technical dis-
cipline to pursue," Atwood said.
"It is a catalyst and a stimulus."
He further maintained that
robotics is the key to infusing
the United States with more
technically-pointed people
"which we definitely need in
order to equip the country for a


technology boom."
He said that robots are ideal
because "they are pro-educa-
tion, pro-equality (boys and
girls have an even playing
field), and pro-family there-
fore they are pro-American."
Dr. Ken Barry, founder of
RoboEducators, and assistant
professor of secondary educa-
tion at California State
University at Northridge, com-
mended Wenst for his efforts to
get more teachers and students
to utilize robotics in the class-
room.
"I think he's doing some
wonderful stuff, because tech-
nology is often lost in schools,"
he said. "Vex is a wonderful
platform to work with."
Barry, who had been working
with NASA in their Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, said that
as an educational specialist he
had been going to schools and
talking with students about
what they do, and that students
were very curious about what
was being done with robots.
A non-profit organization


called FIRST (For Inspiration
and Recognition of Science and
Technology), founded by inven-
tor Dean Kamen, has programs
nationwide which encourage
children to engage in robotics
competitions.
"One of the things Kamen
often said," Barry recalled,
"was that 'you get what you
celebrate.' So if we don't cele-
brate (robotics) we won't get it.
If we celebrate it with them
they'll want to do it more."
Barry also said that a major
benefit of robotics in education
is that ordinarily many abstract
concepts are taught in school,
but robotics makes these con-
crete.
"If they use a robot they can
see it, feel it, and know it in a
better way," he said. "What we
do in education often is to
remove creativity from kids.
(Expert educators) say that if
you put a dot on the board of a
fourth-grade classroom and ask
the kids what it is they will
answer, 'It's the eye of a drag-
on,' or 'It's the hub of a giant


wheel' very creative things.
But if you do the same thing in
eight-grade they'll call it a dot
on a board. We seem to sap their
creativity throughout school
and robotics brings it back in a
way that is fun, is never done,
has no right or wrong answers,
and brings a relevance to light."
Joel Carter, vice president of
marketing for Innovation
FIRST, Inc (who recently pur-
chased rights of Vex Robotics
from Radio Shack), said that
during the 2005 FIRSTVEX
Challenge (a pilot competition),
there were 17 regional teams
participating and all but one
were high school teams.
"A junior high team placed
second because they. were
familiar with robotics in their
classroom," Carter said. "Even
more impressive was the fact
that the first place team went on
to become national champi-
ons."


Wenst said that he isn't sure
why more teachers aren't show-
ing interest in using robotics,
but that it may be due in part to
cost, fear that it is too big of a
challenge, and principals with a
lack of vision.
"A principal with vision can
pull this off," he said. "Pam is
100 percent behind: this and
willing to go beyond the basics
and be supportive."
It is his hope that others will
join in his efforts to launch
enthusiasm and participation in
this exciting method of teach-
ing.

Farmers reminded of June 1 deadline


,. ..';i r ,i.' News-Sun
GAINEs'ViLLE -
Agricultural producers have
until June 1 to sign up for the
2006-crop, Direct and Counter-
cyclical Payment Program
(DCP), said Kevin Kelley,
SED.
USDA will accept late-filed
DCP applications through Sept.
30, if accompanied by a $100
late fee. Producers will be
unable to apply for 2006 DCP
payments after Sept. 30. Sign-
up for the 2006 DCP began Oct.
1,2005.
"I encourage farmers and
growers to sign up for DCP by
June 1. by visiting a USDA
Farm Sei'% ice Agency office or
by using the convenient online
DCP c-iice." Kelley said.
"This program plays an impor-
tant role in providing producers
income support."
The program provides pay-
ments to eligible owners, oper-
ators, landlords, tenants, or
sharecroppers on farms
enrolled for the 2002 through
2007 crop years. There are two
types of DCP payments direct
payments and counter-cyclical
payments. Direct payments are
tied to acreage bases and yields.
Because direct payments pro-
vide no incentive to increase
production of any certain crop,
the payments support farm
income without distorting pro-
ducers' current production deci-
sions.
Counter-cyclical payments
provide support counter to the


* cycle of market prices as part of
a "safety net" in the event of
low crop prices. Counter-cycli-
cal payments for a commodity
are only issued if the effective
price for a commodity is below
the target price for the com-
modity.
The 2002 Farm Bill requires
producers sign annual contracts.
through 2007 to participate in


DCP. Producers may choose not
to participate in DCP in any
year. USDA has issued more
than $28 billion in DCP pay-
ments to producers since the
program began in October
2002. ,
Producers may also sign up
for DCP online at

FIGHT
Continued from 1A

SpringLake and the Highlands
County tax collector to recover
that money.
Originally awarded about
$1.2 million, after several
appeals the class members
received $350,000 1/3 of the
original judgment, according to
court records.
At the same, Tyrrell sued for
an injunction to prevent
SpringLake from pumping
water onto her land.
The injunction case was set
aside until the disposition of the
class action case.
In 2002, a jury said
SpringLake was trespassing on
Tyrrell's property and awarded
her $50,000 in damages.
A month later, a judge grant-
ed an injunction against
SpringLake, restricting how
often the community could run
its pumps.
In 2003, because SpringLake
had the responsibility to protect
its residents, Tyrrell agreed to
let them run one pump at a time
for 15 minutes with an off-cycle
of 45 minutes, not to exceed 90
minutes total in a 24-hour peri-
od.
SpringLake violated this
agreement at least once and had
to pay almost $13,000 in dam-
ages after Tyrrell sued the com-
munity.
SpringLake petitioned the
court for a flood easement in
2005, evoking its eminent
domain powers.
"We would like for this to be
the conclusion to a long dis-
pute," Kevin Ashley, Tyrrell's
attorney, said Friday afternoon.
"It largely depends on the dis-
trict."
Robert Frank Aquilina,
SpringLake superintendent,
wasn't out of his office Friday
and was unavailable to com-
ment.
Ashley said SpringLake has
three options appeal the case
and hope for reversal or
remand, re-file the case, or do
nothing.
Langford left open the possi-
bility that the improvement dis-
trict try again to secure a flood
easement if it does its home-
work.
If no action is taken,
SpringLake must continue to
adhere to the injunction on
pumping and face fines if it vio-
lates it.
"Eminent domain is hereby
dismissed without prejudice ...
should the petitioner decide to
undertake further studies and


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sandra Tyrrell showers Nelson with love recently at Lakeside
Stables. Tyrrell learned Wednesday that a judge ruled in her favor,
denying SpringLake Improvement District a flood easement over
her 38 acres, which means she can now proceed with repairs to her
barn, home, and driveway that she had been holding off on pending
the outcome of the eminent domain case against her.


complete further investigation
that addresses the deficiencies
found in the present proceed-
ing," Langford wrote in his
decision.-
Langford said SpringLake
"exceeded its authority and
abused its discretion" because it
failed to thoroughly investigate
an alternate route (by pumping
directly into Arbuckle Creek),
costs (seeking an easement that
wouldn't consume all of Tyrrell
38 acres), environmental fac-
tors (flooding her property
which includes horse stables
and her house, both used in run-
ning her business -
SpringLake Stables), and safety
(what would happen to occu-
pants, guests, and others during
flooding by SpringLake).
Of the 38 acres sought as a
flood easement, nine acres are
considered uplands and
Langford questioned why no
engineering studies were sub-
mitted to show why that land
needed to be included.
John Underwood, an apprais-
er who testified for SpringLake
said during the April 26 hearing


that Tyrrell's property was
worth $317,500 and the value
of the easement was $48,000.
"(I) find this appraisal to be
far below what would consti-
tute a good faith deposit,"
Langford wrote. "The petitioner
requests the right to be allowed
whenever it wants, and for as
long as it wants, to be able to
submerge respondent's total
property."
Having awarded $12,966.25
in damages in 2000 to Tyrrell
when SpringLake violated the
pumping injunction, Langford
called the $48,000 flood ease-
ment appraisal "not valid."
"She's had a lot of guts to
continue the fight," Ashley said
of his client.,"This decision .was
out of the ordinary" (for emi-
nent domain cases).
Tyrrell said she was happy
with Ashley's performance
through the years.
"He knew what they were
doing is .wrong," she said,
adding that he "felt guilty" for
having to bill her in certain pro-
ceedings. "It's against the law
to flood somebody out."

"Mrs. Juve has been the cata-
lyst for the HAART program,"
Connie Tzovarras said Tuesday
night as administrators and
teachers were recognized for
bringing the program to life.
Tzovarras is the coordinator
of the exceptional student edu-
cation department, and HAART
stands for Highlands Advanced
Academics Rising Together.
"(Juve) came prepared with a
written proposal that looked a
lot more like a dissertation for
doctoral studies," Tzovarras
said.
She praised Lethbridge as the
"quarterback ... who guided,
directed, encouraged and prob-
lem solved every aspect of
HAART this year."
Three school principals -
Rick Demeri, of Cracker Trail
Elementary School, Diane
Lethbridge of Sun 'N Lake
Elementary School, and Darrel
Bryant of Lake Placid Middle
School also were recognized
for their support and input.
Mary Asciutto, who works at
the district, and Marty Orr, an
outside consultant, also were
recognized as having been
instrumental to the program's
success.
In fact, Highlands County's
work has been noticed and
praised at the state level.

that 10 teams throughout the

various communities, targeting
6- to 12-year-olds.
Eunice Welch, program
director at the Sebring Boys &

conducted by the temporary

the children'typically see there.
"They all enjoyed it," she
said, explaining that summer

TUF`FF 9 IT

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley


Hated the math,

loved the job

I loved this week's assign-
ment, working with Dick and
Allora Couture at Couture's
Art & Framing Shop in
Sebring.
Framing is a job I'd be
happy to do.
It has a Zen quality I found
very relaxing. It was the kind.
of work that so absorbed me,
when I looked up at the clock,
I was shocked to see that two
hours had gone by I'd
thought it was only 15 min-
utes.
But the work does take a lot
of specialized knowledge, you
have to be patient and willing
to learn a great deal.
And you have to be adept at
math. I mean really adept,
excellent even.
That's because the key to a
good frame is in the measur-
ing, and everything gets meas-
ured more than once. That is,
there are two measurements to
each component of the frame
- the inside and the outside
edges so actually you are
measuring dozens of times.
I took a print with me
because I thought the Coutures
might not let me work on an
actual customer's prized work
of art (I was right). The print I
took in was best shown off by
usin_ tV.o dttferenr mats. One

Retirement just not meant to be


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Dick and Allora
Couture had retired.
She had sold her boutique, he had sold
his advertising agency. They'd sold their
home in Louisiana, bought a recreation-
al vehicle, and for five years traveled all
over the country.
Dick and Allora Couture had retired.
Then they moved to Lake Placid to
build a home. They made friends with a
man who made picture frames working
out of his home. He had a stroke and
could no longer work. They bought his
business for something to do.
First they worked out of their house.
'The business prospered. In fact, it
became so successful it outgrew their
home.
They opened a site in downtown
Sebring.
Before they knew it, the business
grew even bigger. By 1999, they were
moving to U.S. 27 in Sebring.
Suddenly, they weren't retired any
more.
And they weren't just framing pic-
tures either, but also selling art even
commissioning it, and acting as agents
for artists like Robert Butler, one of the
original Highwaymen artists.
Couture's Art Gallery & Custom
Framing Shop is the kind of place where
a customer can get decorating advise as
well as products and service.
They have original art and quality
prints, both framed and not'.
They also have metal and wood three-
dimensional wall art, sculptures and silk
trees and flowers.
And art supplies as well..
They can frame just about anything
under the sun, no matter how challeng-
ing.
For example, one proud grandpa had
the tail, beard and feet of his grandson's
first turkey kill framed.

Allora Couture is doing the all important measuring, in preparing for the framing process. She also inspects the finished product.


showcase military medals or a gradu-
ate's tassels, they do every day.
The Couture's specialize in conserva-
tion framing. That means they know
how to help protect irreplaceable works
of art or family heirlooms from Florida's
humidity and mold.
The Couture's have access to all kinds
of framing materials from all over the
world. Sophisticated imports from Italy
and Brazil hang side-by-side rustic barn-
wood from Texas, and they sell less
e\pcrini', e read\ -nmde frames too.


For three years in a row "Decor
Magazine" has voted them one of the top
100 art and frame retailers in the coun-
try.
Couture's is a family business. Allora
handles the front counter. She's the first
to see the piece needing a frame, and
guides the customer through the selec-
tion process.
She, is also the last one'to handle the
firnished product it's not framed until
she says it's framed said her huahjnd
Dick urinil recen'ii[\ constructed all the'


framing, but Sandy Fogelman now has
most of that responsibility. She has been
in the business for 25 years.
Fogelman came here from Largo
looking to slo\\ dow n.
Given the Couture's track record,
she'd better watch out.
Couture's Art Gallery & Custom
Framing Shop is at 2045' U.S. 27 S. It is
open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday
through Friday. and from 10 a in. to 3
p m. Saturday. The telephone number is
386-0029.

Continued from 11A
cream matching the negative
space in the picture, the outer
one a blue matching the bold
graphic action of the print.
That meant there were four
components to measure, the
two mats, the frame, and the
part of the picture which was
going to show.
A quick digression about
color. I've had this print for
several years, having bought it
at a garage sale for a dollar. It
came in a ready-made alu-
minum frame with an olive
green mat. Looking at it, all
this time, I saw the print as
black on tan. But take away the
olive green mat and the print is
a definite dark blue.
The change in color startled
me. Looking at it now, I can't
understand how I ever saw it
as black.
That's just to say color is an
amazing thing, and another
area that requires a lot of expe-
rience to master.
In any case, having deter-
mined the various dimensions
needed -- "measure twice, cut
once," the ancient but wise car-
penter's saying goes well with
this profession the time
came to do the actual work.
First the print had to be dry
mounted onto a piece of foam
core, that's a stiff, thick board.
A piece of what looks like old-
fashioned waxed paper is laid
.out between the foam board
and the print, and all three are
put into a machine that works
like a large rectangular dry
cleaner's ironing press. That
fuses the paper and board
together, making it stiff and
less apt to tear, wrinkle or
bend.
If the frame's not ready-
made, then the sides have to be
cut from sticks that are about
10 feet long.
The machine is really cool
because it isn't a saw. Instead
it has a V-shaped blade that
bites into the wood a little at a
time.

Dick Couture is operating the pneumatic nailing machine. For safe-
ty, so no one hammers a nail into a finger, it operates with a finger
button on each side.


The operator moves the'
blade in and out using a hand
piece, and makes the blade cut
by using a foot pedal. You
have to raise your leg pretty
high, then step on the pedal
driving it down. It takes a fair
amount of effort, and on a real-
ly hard wood would be quite a
workout. .
What I kept forgetting, and
it could have led to a disaster,
was to back off the blade after
each cut. Otherwiseit sticks to
the wood, and can cause it to
crack.
Cutting the mats turned out


to be simple. That's because a
computer does all the work. All
I had to do was type in the
.measurements, then stay out of
, the way.
Putting the sides of the
frame together, was another
step that required careful atten-
tion.
Not only do you have to be
sure the edges are in exact
alignment, but you have to be
sure the nails won't go through
the wood.
Wood frames are made using
glue and nails. The nails look
like little Vs because'they are

designed*to go into two differ-
ent pieces of wood at the same
time.
They are hammered into
place by a machine which has
grips to hold them in place,
and a round, soft hammer head
that's operated by push but-
tons. I had to spend time mak-
ing sure the pieces of frame
were properly in place, held
still on a plate. Then I was sup-
posed to move the plate in
order to hammer in a series of
nails. I had to be careful to
move the plate enough each
time so I didn't hammer one
nail on top of another. While
on some thick frames that's a
good thing, on, the thinner
wood I was using, it would
have driven the nail through to
the other side a bad thing.
This was a step I only did
one comer of. I was so slow
and inept, Dick took over.
Then came the most danger-
ous, for the framer, step in the
process cutting the glass. At
Couture's they have a glass
cutting frame attached to a
wall. It a has the always need-
ed measuring guides, and a
glass cutting wheel which is
operated by hand.
The danger is in handling
the glass after it has been cut.
When framing a picture
there are different kinds of
glass to chose from; various
grades which protect the art-
work from damaging ultravio-
let rays more and more effec-
tively. Some of those grades
require special attention,
because there is a proper inside
and outside which can't be'
mixed up.
After putting all the pieces
together, the final step is to
glue a backing onto the picture
to keep out the dust, and attach.
the hangers and wire.
Dick recommends using two
hangers equally spaced on the
wire, as the\ 're better at keep-
irig a painting hanging straight.

Manage yard pests responsibly


This is another in a series of
articles written about the new
area urban conservation pro-
gram called Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods.
Populations here in South
Central Florida will probably
double in the next 20 years.
This means the number of
homes also will double bringing
more yards to care for and more
pest management. Due to the
concerns about health, the envi-
ronment, and pesticide resist-
ance, pest control practices
once taken for granted are now
under scrutiny. Regular preven-
tive insecticide spraying is still
common for some pests but
may be unnecessary. Healthy
plants can usually defend
against or tolerate pest attacks,
while beneficial insects, birds
and other natural controls often
suppress undesirable insects.
Here are some ways to avoid
pest problems in your yard.
Choose insect and disease
resistant plants that can tolerate
conditions in your yard; native
plants are best. Once plants are
established, go easy on fertiliz-
er and water. Too much can
cause excessive growth making
plants vulnerable to some
insects and diseases.
Mowing grass too short and
severely pruning trees and"
shrubs weakens them, inviting
pests. Leave three to four inch-


Lending a hand


es when mowing
your lawn and prune
shrubs selectively.
Encourage benefi-
cial insect by mini-
mizing the use of
broad spectrum pes-
ticides and spot
spraying the affected
area only and not the
whole yard.
Try to identify
pest problems before
they get out of hand
by walking through
your yard twice or
more a week and
look at plants.
Common plant pests
in Florida include

aphids,


mealybugs, scale, whiteflies,
thrips, mites and caterpillars. If
you see curled, rolled or
deformed leaves, mold on
leaves or stems, you are likely
to find a pest lurking some-
where. Sooty mold on leaves is
a telltale clue to an infestation
by what are known as piercing-
sucking insects such as aphids.
These insects secrete a sugary
substance called honeydew, on
which the black-colored sooty
mold fungus feeds and grows.
The sooty mold does not injure
a plant directly, but if excessive
can block sunlight from leaves,
reducing,photosynthesis.
Tolerate some insect damage
and leaf disease as no one can


maintain a pest and

Should you need to

plant first try to sim-
ply remove the infest-
I ed plant part; or if
; they are large, slow
moving caterpillars
ING try picking them off
by hand. Should you
ON need to use a chemical
pesticide use one that is
selective to your prob-
2nds lem or better yet use
Vaster insecticidal soaps or
horticultural oils, both
rlers of which work to
reduce populations of
sucking insects. Products con-
taining an extract of the bacteri-
um, known as bacterium
thuringiensis, take care of cater-
pillars. Try to apply these mate-
rials during the cooler part of
the day to avoid plant injury
and always follow the instruc-
tions on the label.
The Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods program is
being implemented through
your local county extension
service in Highlands,

ties and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319
funding from the U.S.

Agency through the Florida

Thaddeus Cohen, Secretary Department of
Community Affairs.
TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS
AND PERSONS
The Department of Community Affairs will au-
thorize the Florida Housing Finance Corpora-
tion to submit a request to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) for the release of Federal funds under
the HOME Investment Partnerships Program
(Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Af-
fordable Housing Act of 1990) for the follow-
ing project:

purpose of constructing 96 unit apartment
complex at the proposed 'location 0i"- ,oulrl
Care Lane, Sebring, Florida using
$5,425,000.00 of HOME Funds.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
It has been determined that such request for
release of funds will not constitute an' action
significantly affecting the quality of the human
environment and, accordingly, the Department
of Community Affairs has decided not to pre-
pare an Environmental Impact Statement un-
der the National Environmental Policy Act of
1969.
An Environmental Review Record pertaining
to this project has been made by the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs which documents
the environmental review of the project and
more fully sets forth the reasons why such
statement is not required. This Environmental
Review Record is available for public exami-
nation and copying, upon request, at Florida
Housing Finance Corporation, City Centre
Building, 227 N. Bronough Street, Suite 5000,
Tallahassee, FL 32301-1329, weekdays be-
tween the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.,
excluding holidays.
PUBLIC COMMENTS ON FINDINGS
All interested agencies, groups and persons
disagreeing with this Finding of No Significant
Impact decision are invited to submit written
comments for consideration to Kimbell Love,
Director, Division of Housing and Community
Development, Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs, 2555 Shumard Oak Boulevard,
Tallahassee, FL 32399. All such written com-
ments received on or before 15 days of this

ing.
NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE
OF FUNDS
TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS
AND PERSONS
On or about 15 days from the date of this ad-
vertisement, 'the Department of Community
Affairs will authorize Florida Housing Finance
Corporation to submit a request the U.S De-
partment of Housing and Urban Development
to release Federal funds for the project descri-
bed above. The DCA is certifying to HUD that
Thaddeus Cohen, in his capacity as Secretary
of the Department of Community Affairs, con-
sents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal
courts if an action is brought to enforce re-
sponsibilities in relation to environmental re-
views, decision making, and action; and that i
these responsibilities have been satisfied. The
legal effect of the certification is that upon its
approval, Florida Housing Finance Corporation
may use the HOME Investment Partnerships
Program funds, and HUD will have satisfied
its responsibilities under the National Environ-
mental Policy Act of 1969 and related laws
and authorities. HUD will accept an objection
to its approval of the release of funds and ac-
ceptance of the certification only if it is on one
of the following bases: (a) That the certifica-
tion was not in fact executed by the Certifying
Officer of DCA; (b) that the responsible enti-
ty's Environmental Review Record. for the
project indicates omission of a required deci-
sion, finding or step applicable to the project
in the environmental review process; (c) the
grant recipient or other participants in the
project have committed funds or incurred
costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before
approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d)
another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40
CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding
that the project is unsatisfactory from the
standpoint of environmental quality. Objec-
tions to the Release of Funds must be pre-
pared and submitted in accordance with the
required procedure (24 CFR Part 58) and may
be addressed to Environmental Staff, U.S.
HUD, Atlanta Office, Five Points Plaza Build-
ing, 40 Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA 30303. All
objections must be received by HUD within 15
days from the time HUD receives the Respon-
sible Entity's request for release of funds and
certification, or within the time period speci-
fied, whatever is later. Potential objectors-
should contact HUD to verify the actual last

PRECO holds emergency management


planning conference for area counties


Special to the News-Sun
WAUCHULA-- In a contin-
uing effort to develop and
refine the interaction between
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive (PRECO) and local emer-
gency management offices, the
cooperative held its second
annual Emergency Manage-
ment Planning Conference on
Friday, at the main headquarters
in Wauchula. PRECO is an
electric distribution utility serv-
ing 10 counties in the Central
Florida area.
Emergency management rep-
resentatives from four counties,
Hardee, Manatee, Osceola, and
Polk were on hand to discuss
PRECO's power restoration
plan and how it affects their cit-
izens. Brad Kimbro. PRECO's
vice president of marketing and
member services, led the meet-
ing, outlining the cooperative's
planned response to deal with
catastrophic hurricane damage,
should it occur.
The two-hour exercise
involved an overview of
PRECO's hurricane plan and a
question-and-answer period,
allowing the county officials
and the cooperative to gain a
better understanding of each
others methods and protocols.
Kimbro shared, "The knowl-
edgewe gain in advance of ah

Thor Log: Got milk, ice axe in Agua Dulce


Each week, the News-Sun
will reprint a log by Thor
Knutson, hiking the Pacific
Crest Trail from Mexico to
Canada.
Sunday, May 21
When first got to town, saw
an old man with cowboy hat
and boots riding a mule and
using the other one to pack sup-
plies, charging people $20- to
have pictures made with him'
and the mule.
Janitor and Crisper came in.
about noon. Told me a note. on
the bulletin board said an .'ice
axe was found and mailed to the
Saufleys the axe I left behind
at Kitchen Creek.
The Saufleys had all 22 of us
hand over laundry, and gave us
clean sweats and flip-flops to
wear. They washed all our
clothes for us. Makes you
believe in the goodness of
mankind.
Was cloudy and cold all day.
Hope it lasts next week when I
hike the arid foothills of the
Mojave Desert. Back on trail
tomorrow.
Monday, May 22
Woke up to a cold rain.
Didn't stop until middle of the
afternoon. Had a 24-mile hike
to reach water. Decided to wait
until morning.
About 30 people at the camp
site. Someone offered $200 to
anyone who could drink a gal-
lon of milk in an hour. A girl
from Germany and I decided
we could. I made it to within a
pint and had to stop. She got
within a cup when she lost it.
Seems milk is slow to digest.
Janitor, Crispy, Barns and I
have decided to team up for the
next section of the hike: Meet in
the evenings. If one doesn't
show, someone will go looking
for them. We'll depend on


water caches.
Tuesday, May 23
Had a good breakfast before
hitting the trail. Barns, Janitor,
Crispy and I walked down the
road looking for it, but after
about an hour, decided we'd
missed it.
After an hour walk back, we
finally found it, but Bams and
the others decided that it was
too late to start. They returned
to the Saufleys. I'd had enough
dov.n time and decided to con-
tinue. ... -
In.the c.arlI e\ening. I found
a camp with the man with
mules and two other hikers, but
the area was infested with ticks.


I kept walking. No good camp
site until 9 p.m.
Long day.
Wednesday, May 24
A noise woke me in the mid-
dle of the night. All I could see
was two large shiny eyes look-
ing at me a large cat of some
kind. My tent didn't give much
comfort. I stayed still until it,
went away.
When I picked up my pack
this morning the frame broke:
New pack with less than 500
miles.' Called. parents. to.:send-
old pack from the Appalachian
Trail hike. Will be Saturday
before I reach a town to pick it
up. Will make do until then.

With all the rain, creeks are
full of water. Supposed to be
dry. Low 80s, not as hot as sup-

Some hikers are taking the
middle of the day off and hiking
in the evening. I prefer to keep
hiking. I can see the snakes in
daytime, and nights are cool -
better sleeping.

Web site set up for questions about information theft


Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans
Affairs has recently learned that
an employee, a data analyst,
took home electronic data from
VA, which he was not author-
ized to do. This behavior was in
violation of VA policies.
This data contained identify-
ing information including
names, Social Security num-
bers, and dates of birth. for up to
26.5 million veterans and some
spouses, as well as some dis-
ability ratings. Importantly, the
affected data did not include
any of VA's electronic health
records nor any financial infor-
mation.
The .employee's home was
burglarized and this data was
stolen. The employee has been
placed on administrative leave
pending the outcome of an
investigation.
Appropriate law enforcement
agencies, including the FBI and


the VA Inspector General's
office, have launched full-scale
investigations into this matter.
Authorities believe it is unlike-
ly the perpetrators targeted the
items because of any knowl-
edge of the data contents. It is
possible that they remain
unaware of the information
which they possess or of how to
make use of it. However, out of
an abundance of caution, VA is
taking all possible steps to pro-
tect and inform our veterans.
VA.is working with members
of Congress, the news media,
veterans service organizations,
and other government agencies
to help ensure that those veter-
ans and their families are aware
of the situation and of the steps
they may take to protect them-
selves from misuse of their per-
sonal information. VA will send
out individual notification let-
ters to veterans to every extent
possible. Veterans can also go


to www.firstgov.gov to get
more information on this mat-
ter. This Web site is being set to
handle increased Web traffic.
Additionally, working with
other government agencies, VA
has set up a manned call center
that veterans may call to get
information about this situation
and learn more about consumer
identity protections. .That toll
free number is 1-800-FED
INFO (333-4636). The call cen-
ter will be open beginning
today, and will operate from 8
a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through
Saturday as long as it is needed.
The call center will be able to
handle up to 20,000 calls per
hour.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
R. James Nicholson has briefed
the Attorney General and the
Chairman of the Federal Trade
Commission, co-chairs of the
President's Identity Theft Task
Force. Task Force members


have already taken actions to
protect the affected veterans,
including working with the
credit bureaus to help ensure
that veterans receive the free
credit report they are entitled to
under the law. Additionally, the
Task Force has met to coordi-
nate the comprehensive Federal
response, recommend further
ways to protect affected veter-
ans, and increase safeguards to
prevent the reoccurrence of
such incidents.
VA's mission to -serve and
honor our nation's veterans is
one we take very seriously and
the 235,000 VA employees, are
deeply saddened by any con-
cern or anxiety this incident
may cause our veterans and
their families. We appreciate
the service our veterans have
given their country and we are
working diligently to protect
them from any harm as a result
6f this incident.


Answers to some tough questions from veterans


I'm a veteran, how can I
tell if my information was
compromised?
At this point there is no evi-
dence thatany missing data has
been used illegally. However,
the Department of Veterans
Affairs is asking all veterans to
be extra vigilant and to careful-
ly .monitor bank statements,
credit card statements and any
statements relating to recent
financial transactions. If you
notice unusual or suspicious
activity, you should report it
immediately to the financial
institution involved and contact
the Federal Trade Commission
for further guidance.

What is the earliest date at
which suspicious activity
might have occurred due to
this data breach?
The information was stolen
from an employee of ,the
Department of Veterans Affairs
during the month of May, 2006.
If the data has been misused or
oiherv ise used to commit fraud
or Ldenuti thih crimes, it-Jis
like!i that \eierans may notice
suspicious activity during the
month of May.

I haven't noticed any suspi-
cious activity in my financial
statements, but what can I do
to protect myself and prevent
being victimized by credit
card fraud or identity theft?
The Department of Veterans
Affairs strongly recommends
that veterans closely monitor
their financial statements and
visit the Department of
Veterans Affairs special Web
site on this, www.firstgov.gov
or call 1-800-FED-INFO (333-
4636).

Should I reach out to my
financial institutions or will
the Department of Veterans
Affairs do this for me?
The Department of Veterans
Affairs does not believe that it
is necessary to contact financial
institutions or cancel credit
cards and bank accounts, unless
you detect suspicious activity.

Where should I report sus-
picious or unusual activity?
The Federal Trade
Commission recommends the
following four steps if you
detect suspicious activity:
Step 1 Contact the fraud


department of one of the three
major credit bureaus:
Equifax:. 1-800-525-6285;
www.equifax.com; P.O.. Box
740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-
0241.
Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN
(397-3742); www.experian.
com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen,
Texas 75013.
TransUnion: 1-800-680-
7289; www.transunion.com;
Fraud Victim Assistance
Division, P.O. Box 6790,
Fulerton, CA 92834-6790.
Step 2 Close any accounts
that have been tampered with or
opened fraudulently.
Step 3 File a police report
with your local police or the
police in the community where
the identity theft took place.
Step 4 File a complaint
with the Federal Trade
Commission by using the
FTC's Identity Theft Hotline by
telephone: 1-877-438-4338,
online at www.consumer.gov/
idtheft, or by mail at Identity
Theft Clearinghouse, Federal
Trade .Commission, 600
Pennsylvania Avenue NW,
Washington, DC 20580.

I know the Department of
Veterans Affairs maintains


my health records electroni-
cally; was this information
also comprised?
No electronic medical
records were comprised. The
data lost is primarily limited to
an individual's name, date of
birth, Social Security number,
in some cases their spouse's
information, as well as some
disability ratings. However; this
information could still be of
potential use to identity thieves
andiwe recommend that all vet-
erans be extra vigilant in moni-
toring for signs of potential
identity theft or misuse of this
information.

What is the Department of
Veterans Affairs doing to
insure that this does not hap-
pen again?
The Department of Veterans
Affairs is working, with the
President's Identity Theft Task
Force, the Department of
Justice and the Federal Trade
Commission to investigate this
data breach and to develop safe-
guards against- similar inci-
dents. The Department of
Veterans Affairs has directed all
VA employees complete the
"VA Cyber Security Awareness
Training Course" by June 30,

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Resting in

the answer
"A friend loveth at all
times," Proverbs 17:17. I'm
thankful for friends who
have lived this truth.
Lately, four of them have
been teaching me an even
deeper truth; that of resting
in God in the midst of per-
sonal tragedy; demonstrat-
ing triumph and growth:
I met one of them when
we were single parents. We
supported each other like
bookends. Later, we both
were blessed with remar-
riage.
Unfortunately, just before
then she was diagnosed with
multiple sclerosis. Later, a
few years after their wed-
ding, he died from cancer.
Still she praises God for his
blessings andipresence.
Another came to, the Lord
through our friendship and
became a strong witness -
raising her family of five to
know the Lord.
In the last two years she
has been in and out of
comas, unable to speak or
walk naturally suffering
from an unnamable illness.
Yet she believes God will
heal her in his time. They
have rejoiced at every sign
of progress, even the few
words she speaks clearly,
"Love Jesus. Love the Lord.
Love church." But, recently
there's been a reversal and
the future is tentative at
best.
One constant friend and I
shared the joys of young
motherhood. When my mar-
riage crumbled, she stood
by me, encouraging me spir-
itially, emotionally. W\ hen
Ken and I married, she
shone as my matron of
honor delighting in our
new family.
On Sept. 11, 2001, her
26-year-old son died in the
second tower of the World
Trade Center. The ache of
ongoing grief has her cling-
ing to Jesus Christ as she
shifts the x eight of pain to
his shoulders and learns new
dimensions of faith and
praise.
Another gracious friend
attended the same church
with me our children,
only a few months apart in
nursery. She never aban-
doned me in my singleness
and gently advised me to
wait on the Lord. At the
beach near her home during
a July 4 celebration, Ken
proposed to me.
For the last 18 months,
she has been suffering the
debilitation of ALS (Lou
Gehrig's disease). She can't
speak or swallow and is fed
through tubes in her stom-
ach. Though extremely
fatigued, she cherishes vis-
its, kindnesses and can still
write.
In her last note, she
praised God, recounting all
his goodness, saying, "I am
blest beyond measure."
These precious friends
leave me breathless. Yet, I
know they wouldn't want
me to marvel so much at
their faith, but in the One in
whom they rest. He knows
their wounds and holds
them in the palms of his
wounded hands, bestowing
healing love and strength to
their hurting hearts.
They are living examples
that in life's tragedies, God
isn't the problem, he's the
answer. Selah.

Dad returns home

from Iraq to see his

daughter graduate
By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
renae Blanchette had accepted the fact that her
dad would not be able to be home for her
Sebring High School graduation.
Last year, Rob Blanchette, a dually certified law
enforcement/corrections officer in Highlands County
and shift supervisor at the Highlands County Jhail,
investigated an opportunity to go to Iraq as a civilian
in order to train the Iraqi police.
After several family meetings and much prayer, his
wife Ruthie and children Brenae, 18, Bobby, 15 and
Brian, 25, who lives in California, agreed to support
Blanchette irn his calling to be a part of the larger pic-
ture in assisting Iraq to rebuild.
"We had been praying about it from the beginning
- that, if it was God's will, he would open the doors.
And, if not, close the doors," Blanchette said.
This conversation came up often with the family.
So many things could have happened that could have
prevented his going.
"It was neat because, instead, the, doors fell open
and it was so obvious," he said.
The issue of Brenae's graduation was not just a
passing thing.
"We talked in depth about these things," Blanchette
said. "If she had said that she needed to have me here,
I wouldn't have gone." But; according to Blanchette,
his daughter said, "I know you have to do this."
Even though it was a family decision, it was hard to
let him go. However, they believed in him and what
he was doing knowing he's "built for this sort of
thing." They sent him off with their support and bless-
ing.
He left, in January with no
idea whether coming home W
for graduation would even be *
an option I lh.' r. after .
several months in Iraq, he
came to the understanding
that the possibility existed. .
"It didn't fall in my lap. I '
had to find a way. But, the
people I work for are very
understanding and sympa-
thetic," he said. ,
Once they knew his rea-
sons, there wasn't any ques-
tion as long as everything
worked out tactically. By
being straight with them, they
were straight with him and it
tame together.
"The next eight months
will seem pretty long,"
Blanchette said, "but it's been
a fair trade."

Pulling off .....
the surprise
When Blanchette's mother
flew home from a visit in .
Arkansas, she "happened" to '
arrive at Orlando
International Airport a few :-
hours before Blanchette's .-
flight was due in. His mom .
suggested that she and his
adjust wait for him. k
"When we got home, Mom
came in and told the kids to
come out to the driveway.
because she had something .
for them," Rob said'.
Thinking it was a gift from i s
Arkansas, they followed her
out only to be stunned to see
their dad sitting in the car. y
"It was pretty neat,"
Blanchette said.

Family togetherness
a nd support
Blanchette admits to being S
an "introverted" adrenaline --
junky. Being in his presence, "
one doesn't sense the intensi- ;
ty that usually accompanies ..
one who relishes taking risks. ..
But a little about his military
background helps complete
the picture.
"The mindset of somebody
who has been in the military '
makes them more prone to do
something like this,"
Blanchette said.
In the 1980s, he was in the
Navy six years; and in the
1990s, he was in the Army .
four years as an enlisted sol- ""--
dier cavalry scout. Part of .,.
that time was as a commis- -
sioned officer after going ;-i-. '-'
through Officer's Candidate ,--'-
School to be an intelligence

daughter Brenae during her graduation at Sebring High


He likes the idea of being in the mix and to be part
of the big picture of rebuilding Iraq. Even with bullets
flying past his head and bombs exploding around him,
it adds to the whole draw for him.
Blanchette knows he couldn't do any of this if it
weren't for the blessing of his wife.
"I can trust her with everything. She knows me and
my feelings of wanting to help and serve the country."
With their prior military history, they've seen quite
a bit. She was used to him being gone. However, this
time they've been settled in Sebring for 11 1/2 years
together. So she had to draw on her faith and call
upon those reserves deep within herself and make a
new adjustment.
"My wife is wonderful and a very capable woman.
Though % e work well as a team, I know I can trust
her to take care of things at home. She understands
my calling and steps in and does what needs to be
done in my absence. This gives me peace of mind and
makes my job easier," Blanchette said.

Keeping in touch
The Blanchettes are a close-knit family and even in
normal circumstances touch base frequently with each
other. However, they may be talking to each other
even more since he's been overseas.
"Cell phones and e-mail have kept us in touch more
than twice a day. Twenty years ago, it was three
months before mail got through," he said. "I'm gone,
but I'm here electronically."

Challenges of the job

were first met by intensive training training which

ON RAW!,~

.. ........


Blanchette's job is to train
the Iraqi police to help them
understand the concepts of
being an Iraqi police force in
a democratic environment.
"'We are helping them to
understand the concepts of
human rights. We are using
both mentoring and teaching
skills," he said.
Blanchette lives with them
12 hours a day. The officers
live at the police station three
to four days at a time. All of
the nitty-gritty daily details
and the patrolling are oppor-
tunities for mentoring.
To deal with the language
barrier, Blanchette and anoth-
er teammate share an inter-
preter.
"I am fortunate to have a
fine man as interpreter -
someone I can trust with my
life," he said.
Ironically, the interpreters
don't use their real names.
Blanchette's interpreter wears
a black mask in order to hide
his identity (though
Blanchette has seen him face
to face).
"If he were to be recog-
nized as one who is helping
the good guys, his life and
the lives of his family would
be endangered."
The irony of this whole
war is that it's hard to tell the
good guys from the enemy.
"Insurgents have infiltrated
the ranks of the Iraqi police
and army. There are local
merchants throughout Iraq
that sell uniforms, weapons
and vehicles and often that is
how the enemy has gone in
and done something,"
Blanchette said.
Blanchette said that rough-
ly 95 out of 100 police are
trying to do the right thing.
They've developed good rela-
tions with these Iraqis know-
ing they'd lay their lives
down for them; However,
there are a small percentage
of radicals trying to disrupt
the process which they deal
with on a day to day basis.
"Quite honestly, you don't
know who they are and that
is the scary part."
Consequently, whenever
they go out it's in a tactical
situation where they assume
they will be shot at.
"So I wear body armor,
carry a semi-automatic rifle
and have a pistol on my leg.
It's very likely to be assault-
ed. So, because of security

ELIZABETH WALKER/News-Sun
New board members of the Sebring Historical Society, Robert
Freeland and Gary Harnage are Sebring High School graduates and
are shown here prior to a board meeting. They look forward to shar-
ing and learning more about the history of their hometown.

'I was born in Sebring, grew up
in Sebring and am very interested
in its history.'
ROBERT FREELAND


In 1959, Gary Harnage and-
Kaye Wolfe were married in
Sebring Church of the Brethren
and they have two children:
Michael, in Virginia and Linda,
in South Carolina. '
His electronic training led to
a career with U.S. Boeing
Aircraft and McDonald
Douglas Aircraft in Cape
Canaveral. Retiring in Sebring,
he became active in his church,
and volunteered with the
SHARE food program for five
years.
Harnage decided to investi-
gate when he saw the Sebring
Historical Society announce-
ment of its fund drive in the
newspaper. The idea of a fund
drive using a painted wooden
model of the former Sebrine


High School stirred his imagi-
nation; he had to' see it.
Once inside the Sebring
Historical Society Archive, he
was intrigued with Sebring's
history displayed before him in
looseleaf notebooks and panels.
The history of his hometown
was right there. And there was
this enthusiastic, knowledge-
able lady Carole Goad -
there to guide him through it.
When she mentioned, volun-
teering, he readily agreed. He
has been recording data in the
computer, assisting wherever
needed and is pleased to
become a member of the board.
For information about the
High School Model and the
Archive hours open telephone

Teach children at young age about


Dear Pauline:
I am a young mom and is
curious to know, at what age
should I start to teach my 6-
year-old daughter manners. She
is developing some attitude, and
I don't want to wait until things-
get out of hand.
Young Mom
Dear Young Mom:
The first five years of a
child's life is called the forma-
tive years, this is the time when
they echo adults and children
around them. They follow by
example. Beyond saying please
and thank you. Say I'm sorry
when in situations that warrant
an apology. Greet visitors
politely at your home.
Compliment her when she does
nice things. Sit with your legs
close. Cover your mouth with a
napkin when you cough. Don't
allow any name calling.It's
never to late to start.
Dear Pauline:
My daughter who is 10 looks
older, and she likes to wear
clothes that her teenage sister
wears. However, that's not my


problem. My problem is that
there are adults around us that
keeps calling her "Sexy.",
Although I tell them to call her
by her name, they still insist on
calling her "Sexy" while saying
that I am old fashion.
Disgusted
Dear Disgusted:
It's inappropriate to refer to a
child in a sexual manner,, that
term of endearment must be
given to adults. Such references
could attract undesirable atten-
tion. Tell the adults that if they
can't call your daughter by her
name, then you'd prefer if they
didn't speak to her at all. And
by the way, your 10-year-old
should be wearing age appro-
priate clothes. Based on how
you allow your daughter to
dress, could this be a part of the
problem?
Dear Pauline:
How many times should a
person wash their hands on
each visit to the bathroom?
A Local Reader
Dear Reader:
Wash your hjnds twice,


Serving

before and after you use the
bathroom. The hands should be
washed with soapy water, then
dried. Using the paper towel
that was used to dry your hands,
turn the faucet and shut the
'water off. You should never use
your bare hands to open a pub-
lic restroom door following
your visit. Reason, in a high
traffic bathroom where
strangers frequent, not every-
one washes their hands.
Therefore, contaminated hands
will leave the door knobs con-
taminated, allowing the spread
of germs.

Agricultural Research Service discovers new mosquito repellent


The Agricultural Research
Service is the research branch
of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. In the past, their
work has brought us products
such as Deet (used to repel
mosquitoes) and Superslurper,
the magic stuff inside of diapers
that can soak up many times its
own weight in water. Their
monthly publication,
"Agricultural Research," high-
lights some of their current
projects.
The ARS may have found a
new mosquito repellent equal to
the power of Deet. A natural
compound called "callicarpe-
nal" passed tests that simulated
human skin. An old Mississippi
folk remedy led ARS scientists
to isolate the compound from
the leaves of American beauty-
berry, Callicarpa americana. As
long as a century ago, residents
were placing crushed beauty--
berry leaves under horse and
mule harnesses to help keep bit-
ing insects away from the ani-
mals. Eventually, some folks


there mashed the leaves and
rubbed the oily residue on their
own skins. A patent has been
submitted for callicarpenal and
a new round of tests will begin
on ticks. ARS also will develop
ways of producing large quanti-
ties of the compound, either
through synthesis or crops. But
don't expect to see this com-
pound on the market soon. It
still has to pass toxicity trials
before any testing on humans.
A new study links high car-
bohydrate diets to development
of cataracts. The study looked
at the eye health of 417 women
aged 53 to 73 with no history of
cataracts. Researchers conduct-'
ed eye exams and studied
dietary intake data from ques-
tionnaires designed to assess
the possible relationship
between volunteers' newly
diagnosed cataracts and their
average carbohydrate intake
over a 14-year period. Those
women whose average carbo-
hydrate levels were between
200 and 268 grams per day


were 2.5 times more
likely to develop
cataracts than those
whose intakes aver-
aged between 101
and 185 grams per
day. The current rec-
ommended dietary
allowance, based on


how much glucose NEWS
the brain heeds, is
130 grams for both TI
adults and children.
ARS scientists are WATE
studying which pota-
to management prac- Jennife
tices can improve
soil conservation and
groundwater quality. Potatoes
are heavily fertilized ,crops
grown on coarse-textured soils
that are susceptible to nitrate
leaching. However, researchers
have found that nitrate leaching
is minimized by following the
shallow-rooted potato crop with
a deep-rooted cover crop like
winter rye, malting barely, or
winter wheat. Cover.crops can
reduce wind erosion and protect


; F

HE



rT


groundwater by
recovering nitrate
from soil and irriga-
tion water. 'Deep-
rooted cover, crops
sequester carbon,
cycle nutrients, and
draw nitrate from far
down in the soil. A
FROM study showed that
planting a cbver crop
E increased subsequent
cum- potato tuber yield'by
SHED an averageof 1,500
pounds, per acre. The
Abbey results- show that
.. farmers can generate
income .of,. $60 to
$100 more per acre by using
cover crops;.
Eli Whitney's 1793 invention
to remove seeds from cotton,
the cotton gin, is a ideal\
knaowh invention that revolu-
tionized the cotton industry. But
perhaps not as widely known
are the inventions that have
improved our domestic gins in
recent years. The Cotton
Ginning Research Unit in


Stoneville, Miss., has patented
20 inventions in the past 35
years. The improvements.
include reducing the amount of
valuablee fiber ejected along
with..the .trash (leaf particles.
sticks, stems, etc), controlling
cotton- moisture levels and bjle
tie failures: :, : .
Less fiber is wasted in the
cotton, cleaning process with an
invention known as
"IntelliGin." As a result, bale
weight is increased bN eight to
10 pounds Other hint cleaner
improvements also add to the
amount, of. good fiber that is-
retained, Cotton farmers using,
the new technology. can typical-
ly save $3 to $6 per bale.
Maintaining proper cotton
moisture is critical for cotton
cleaning. handling, and fiber
qujalih preservation. Cotton
with high moisture content does
not handle or clean well and
degrades -during storage. Fiber
processed at low moisture is
more brittle and easily damaged
during ginning. Improper mois-


.ture levels are also hard on the
equipment and can cause exces-
sive wear. Researchers devel-
oped 'and implemented methods
to properly apply, measure, and
control moisture during pro-
cessing. Their efforts also
resulted in an industry-wide
reconimendation for final bale
moisture content.
Bale tie breakage repair costs
range from $10 to $45 a bale, an
estimated $8 to $36 million
annually. ARS invented a
de\ ice to make repairs easier.
The device recompresses the
bales only in the specific area
where the tie or ties. need to be
replaced.

Blanchette's pleased that the
Army takes care of the spiritu-
al side for the soldiers over,
there with an active chapel.,
"God is real over there and,
in some ways, his presence
may be even more detectable
because of the situation,"
Blanchette said.
Knowing God had placed
the calling on his heart to go,
taking all the family issues and
decisions into consideration -_
as well as the obvious risks of
such an endeavor -
Blanchette has no regrets.
"I am very happy to be part
of what is going on and I hope
the American people can be
patient. It's going to be a long
process. It took the United
States a long time to be what
we are and it will take them
longer than a year to become
what they are," he said.
Blanchette believes the
whole thing is good, but it
' ;won't happen over night.
S The Iraqis want success
and are trying to help us;
unfortunately, there are some
*who don't want that success
and do all in their power to
disrupt it. I'm proud to be part
of this. I don't regret my deci-
sion'at all."

What to look for in the ideal librarian


Melvil Dewey, known as the
Father of Modem
Librarianship, once said, "To
my thinking, a great librarian
must have a clear head, a strong
hand, and above all, a great
heart. He must have a head as
clear as the master in diploma-
cy; a hand as strong as he who
quells the raging mob or leads
great armies on to victory; and a
heart as great as he who, to save
others, will, if need be, lay
down his life. Such shall be
greatest among librarians; and,
when I look into the future, I am
inclined to think that most of
the men who will achieve this
greatness will be women."
(Library Journal, January
1899).
M\ predecessor.. Merry
Cress'\ell, ga\e this quote to
me on my first day as the new
Lake Placid librarian. I find this
quote to be inspinng because it'
lists the best qualities possible
in a librarian; qualities worthy
of striving toward in my daily
service to the Lake Placid com-
munity. Since I am new to Lake
Placid, I thought I would share
a little about my self and then
tell you some of the, exciting
changes that are occurring at
the Lake Placid Memorial
Library.
* I have eight years experience


in public library service and
have done everything from
ordering, processing and weed-
ing items in the collection to
director of a four branch library
system in Point Pleasant, W.V. I
have an master in science 'in
information sciences and an
Master in arts in comparative
literature with an emphasis on
Spanish and English literature. I
moved from beautiful West
Virginia to Lake Placid to be
near my family while continu-
ing my career in public library
service.'
Since coming to Lake Placid,
I have met some. of the nicest
people who passionately sup-
port the library. Foremost are
the volunteers who work behind
the scenes 'mnakine sure that
returned items are sheled. that
damages remsni are repaired and
helping the patrons find what
they are looking for. One volun-
teer, Olga DeBruler, has created
a beautiful Memorial Day dis-
play which is available foi
viewing through. June in the
glass display'case in the front
lobby area. Person. interested
in creating displays for public
enjoyment are encouraged to
contact the library at 699-3705
to reserve the glass case.
Another group that actively
supports the library is the Lake


Placid Garden Club.
It purchases and
cares for the beauti-
ful plantings outside
the library and mem-
bers have started dis-
playing their talents
inside the library as
well. Currently on
display is a sunshine
yellow variegated LIBRAI
bromeliad provided
by Lorraine Krestc
Tzoucalis and a floral
design with protea
provided by
Rosemary Brooks. Her family
sent the protea from Hawaii for
Mother's Day. The scarlet and
gold blooms are uniquely
shaped and work beautifully
with the variegated bromeliad
to brighten the library shelves.
Another addition to the
library's appearance that I hope
to add is a glass wall to, what is
current the multicultural sec-
tion. This area could then
become the Quiet Reading
Room, which would allow the
current Reading, Room to
become a children's area. I am
very excited about this possibil-
ity as it would allow the chil-
dren's librarian to hold story
hour and lapsit where patrons
could watch the programs but
the glass wall would muffle the


lY


S sound. I also would
like to add beanbag
chairs and other kid-
friendly furniture that
would accommodate
the after school kids.
"This change may
l1not happen before the
"Summer Reading
Program begins but
LINES hopefull will happen

iarris school year starts.

The kindergarten classes at Woodlawn Elementary School in Sebring were treated to a special visit
by representatives from MidFlorida Federal Credit Union. Chet Brojek and his wife Chris read
'Sakes Alive Its a Cattle Drive' to each of the kindergarten classes recently. The bank was promot-
ing the importance of learning to read and to sase. At the end of the story, each child received
their own cop3 of the book. Each child also was presented with a "Gatorsater' bookmark u which
they could take to MidFlorida and open a $5 savings account as a gift from the bank.

No matter what problem you

^ ..: an ans wer,
This week I want to build up
: %^ your faith. Lets take a look at
the book of Acts 3:6. It reads:
"Then Peter said. silver and
=- g- gold have I none, but such as!
I hare, give I thee. In the nanti!e
,',of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and wask
"Then Peter said to the lame man. such as I havt'
give I thee." immediately he went on to say "In
the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up
and walk."
In order for the lame man to walk he had to
have faith. He could have had doubt in his mind
and stayed in the condition his body was in. but
he had faith. He not only had faith, he had
works.
James 2:20 tells us. "but iiilt thou know, 0 vain
man., that faith without works is dead?" Faith in
a simple term means' bdi ng and knowing it's
there, but you have nit s.en the presence of it
yet. Remember there~ ,afji-oblem. that's beyond
the ability of Jesuisij h to cure. Don't be
satisfied with the pr Ti/ the situation you 're
facing. Be willing to ..4A p. Jesus stands right
in front of you with 6JrS"ms. Let him in.
Be encouraged!

Be proud of our flag

We want to thank Robert Hedenberg Jr. of Sebring for
stepping up and speaking out about the lack of a flag fly-
ing above one of Sebring's businesses. His concern made
us take a look at ourselves and remember that our flag
also was missing.
In fact, Roy Whitton of Lake Placid, and a member of
several veteran organizations, has been after us to replace
the flag that was taken down because of wear.
There are a number of businesses in Highlands County
not flying a flag, and even more disheartening are the
number of flags flying at both businesses and residential
homes that are tattered or faded so badly the red stripes
are now pink.
We must remember that the torn and faded flags should.
and must be discarded of properly.
On Monday, the Avon Park American Legion Post 69
and its auxiliary will have a combined Memorial Day
service at 11 a.m. Part of that service will be a flag dis-
posal program, under the direction of Past Commander
Dave Watkin.
We urge all business owners/managers and residents to
check their flags for this Memorial Day. Replace any that
are torn, tattered or faded and bring their old flags to the
post for proper retirement and disposal.
We also want to remind those flying the flag that
should the Stars and Stripes need to be replaced through
the year, the Sebring VFW has converted an old mnail bo\
that: sits on Maple Drive, two roads behind the Sebring
Police Department, where N ou can deposit your flag and
they % ill properly dispose of it.
The News-Sun pledges to Robert, Roy and the others
out there who truly care. that we will continue to fl\ our
flag and fly it properly. The rest of Highlands County
should do the same.

Debating the DaVinci Code


Fair warning:
This column is
going to talk about
the book and movie
"The DaVinci


LAURA'S

Laura


Code." If you
haven't seen the
movie, read the book, or
perused the 5 million articles
about it and don't want to know
any details yet, you might want
to bail out of the column now.
Now to the topic. I had plans.
to talk about both the book and
the movie. Unfortunately, as I
type this, I have yet to see the
picture in question.
This is partially due to my
son John. He has gotten a job
this summer. Now don't get me
wrong, I am deliriously happy
that he is doing something more
productive than spending his
summer days playing computer
games. The downside of his
having a job is that he needs a
car to get to work. Since Don
already uses his car to get to
work, that means John appro-
priates mine.


It's why he died

on the cross
Editor:
I was listening to a tape
recording on the radio by Dr.
Ralph Neighbor, now deceased.
He was saying that before
Charles Darwin died that the
man got saved and was a .real
Christian.
Pastor Neighbor said that a
Rev. Fletcher called on Darwin
at the hospit.il where the main
was a patient during his last
days and found him propped up
on a pillow on his bed reading
the Bible in the book of
Hebrews.
He 'looked up at Pastor
Fletcher and said to him that
this book (Hebrews)' was the
most majestic book in the
whole Bible. "'J loe it and lead
it every day overhand over.
Then I read a letter where
Darwin's nurse, who was tak-
ing care of him when he died,
wrote to my science professor
and she said that Charles
Darwin remarked to her that he
could not understand why peo-
ple would believe in the idea
(e\ olutioni that he had when he
was a uoung man, since it was
so ridiculous.
But of.course. his fail\ has
made a lot of money from the
book he wrote, so they have
suppressed Darwin's conver-
sion to Christianity.
I suppose there are those of
you out there who would say
no way. But then this just
shows some of what God's
grace can reach down and do
for one soul.
After all, isn't that why he
went to the cross.
I remember reading about
the thief on the cross along side
of Jesus. Christ forgave that
man and told him that day he
would be with him in paradise.
Close call for both men'I'd say.
I can only see one sad thought
in Darwin and the thief's
minds. That to me is the fact
that they never had the oppor-
tunity to tell others of the
amazing grace and mercy the
Lord showed to them. If only
they could have lived a little
longer to tell others how they
could be delivered from a life
of sin and to experience in their
hearts the same joy and peace
they had.
Friend, don't laugh at these
two men. Rest assured, they
made it to the city. Will you?
To those of you that do not
know Christ as your personal
savior, don't cheat yourselves
any longer. God can give you
peace and a purpose in life that
you can enjoy forever. Don't
put off what Darwin and the
thief did. Stand up, be a man or
woman, confess your sins and
repent. This world has nothing


This too is not
SLOOK all bad, since I can
usually get him to
Ware run errands for me
as well and I get to
avoid the incredi-
bly hot. tempera-
tures we are "enjoying" this
time of the year. But it also
means I am somewhat restricted
in my domings and goings..
So I have not yet seen the
movie, "The DaVinci Code."
Nevertheless, since a lot of peo-
.ple say it is pretty close to the
book, and it appears from the
few clips I have seen of the
thing that it is making the same
claims, I feel somewhat com-
fortable talking about the sub-
ject. If I see the movie and I
change my mind about the
sameness thing, I'll get back to
you.
The reason I want to talk
about "The DgVinci Code" is
that a lot of people are taking
the book (and movie) very seri-
ously. Some are going so far as
to claim the "fact," Dan Brown


puts forth are true and seem to
want to take a fiction book and
weave a theology out of it.
Others decry the book (and
movie) as nothing less than a
blatant attack on Christianity
and Christians alike.
I do understand why fellow
Christians would find Brown's
message (if you don't want to
know it and are still here, get
out of the column now), that
Jesus married and had a child a
slap. After all, the very founda-
tion of the Christian faith is that
Jesus died and was raised as an
atoning sacrifice for the sins of
the world. Making him out to be
nothing more than a man, albeit
a good one, is contrary to what
we believe. I.will debate that
with anyone who wants to chat
with me on it.
However, I think people on
both sides of the coin are miss-
ing an essential fact in Dan
Brown's book and the movie
based on it. This fact is essential
to really understanding the
meaning and it isn't even in


code. Read very carefully, and I
will reveal this important fact.
Ready?
"The DaVinci Code" is fic-
tion.
Fiction, as in, "made up." As
in "not real." As in "pulled out-
of an author's imagination." As
in "imaginary tale." Is that
clear?
"The DaVinci Code" is an
international thriller which is a.
wild ride and a fast read. It isn't
something that is designed to
teach theology, and a lot of the
history the characters claim is
not based on reliable fact. It's
just something to read for enter-
tainment for a few hours.
You want theology? Try the
Bible. You want entertainment?
Try a,novel or a movie. Mix up
the two and you just wind up
confused.

Editor's note: According to

Lady Hope who reported to find
Darwin reading the Bible on his
deathbed. However, it has not
been determined if Darwin had
in fact become a Christian before
dying.

Return country

to the people
Editor:
There has been much specu-
lation about the, extremely
aggressive and controversial
political style and actions of the
Bush icdministlation and the
republican leadership.
Karl Rove is often identified
as the "architect" behind the
republican rise to power. Could
it be that he is merely a student
\of history? I read a very inter-
esting and informative article,
introducing a PBS documen-
tary on Joseph Goebbels that
provides a disturbing similarity
in political philosophy between
these "men behind the throne."
Many of the propaganda
techniques described in the
1940's U.S. Office of Strategic
Services report on Goebbels
are being used today by this
administration and the republi--
can leadership with chilling.
effectiveness.
The Big Lie, defined in the
article as "repeating a point
(true or not) often enough so


that it becomes an accepted.
distorted truth" was used in ihe
2000 republican, primary by
Bush to defeat McCain, and is
unfortunately Still an effective
tool today .
"Concentrate on, one enemy
at a time and blame him for
e ei3r thing that goes \ rong'" i,
another propaganda technique
identified in- the article that has
been the snateg. used by this
administration since Sept: lif,
2006. That tragedy has been
used to justify every thing from
the invasion of Iraq to the inva-
sion of our privacy to the slash-
ing of bur social programs.
"Never admit a fault or
wrong" and "never accept
blame" are two of Goebbels
techniques used to great advan-
tage by Bush, At one point he
acknowledged that mistakes
had been made and that as pres-
ident he accepted responsibili-
ty, but at no time in his te in in
office has he ever owned up to
any error in judgment or any
personal culpability for any of
his actions.
It is past time for the voter to
accept the fact that by our
acquiescence we have been
guilty of allowing these despi'-
cable practices to continue
unchecked. We must stand up
and voice our outrage and
objections in anyway we can!
We must return the peoples
government to the people!
C.E. Willson
Sebring

Why are some

above the law?
Editor:
Perhaps someone in your
readership can explain to me
why the members of Congress
hold themselves above the. law.
I am referring to the FBI's raid
on Louisiana Representative
Jefferson's Congressional


'I love freedom of the press. But that freedom does

not require me to answer every question you ask or

to respond to every issue you raise.'

MICHAEL STEELE, Maryland lieutenant governor, 2005


office.
As I understand the case, the
FBI has been investigating
wrongdoing by Rep. Jefferson
for over a year arid, as part of
their investigation, they uncov-
ered $90,000 in cash hidden in
a freezer in his home. I also
understand that the FBI "went
by the book" in this case. They
obtained a court order (search
warrant), which allowed them
to search the' representative's
office.
I read in the news today that
House Majority Leader Hastert
and Senate Majority Leader
Frist have both condemned the
raid as unconstitutional and
have "demanded" that the FBI
return any documents that were
removed from Mr. Jefferson's
office. Mr. Haestert has gone
even -further by adding that the
administration is to blame.
My question is, why.
Are members of Congress
above the laws that they enact
to govern the behavior of the
rest of us? The court, which is
part of the judicial branch of
government, obviously found
sufficient cause to grant the
request for the search warrant.
How is that action somehow
twisted to bring criticism on the
executive branch read that
President Bush?
Has anyone noticed that
Rhode Island Representative
Patrick Kennedy was not given
a sobriety test recently when he
crashed his car into a barrier in
Washington, D.C., even though
one of the police officers at the
scerie is quoted as saying he
smelled alcohol on Mr
Kennedy? Why? Is Patrick, like
his father Ted back in 1969,
when he crashed his car at
Chappaquiddick taking the life
of Mary Jo Kopechne, also
above the law? Had that been
me in either of. these cases I
would probably still be behind
bars.
Finally, on the Web page that
came up when I Googled
"Mary Jo Kopechne" there is
the following, which sums up
how I feel about these matters.
Amazingly, this was said many
years B.C. by the Greek
philosopher Plato: "The penal-
ty good men pay for indiffer-
ence to public affairs is to be
ruled by evil men."

It was more than a fishing trip


Knowing that I was new to the
area, and living out of a hotel, the
publisher of the (Winter Haven)
News-Chief kindly invited me to
join him and several of his staff
members at a fishing tournament
they were holding a few
Saturday ago. I said, "Sure, why
not?," although it had been sever-
al years since I had engaged in the
sport. Life always seemed to get
in the way..
Promising that he had me cov-
ered with food, gear and tackle,
he asked only that I make the

Chain ,of Lakes, and play traffic cop for
awhile as we got the participant's boats in
the water. He assured me that we would be
casting and reeling by 8 a.m. Other than an
llth-hour panic attack over not having a
Florida freshwater fishing license (fortu-
nately, Wal-Mart stays open for people just
like me), that is exactly what happened ..
and more.
The next morning I stood on shore, hav-'
ing checked live wells and ushered my
share of craft to their appointed starting
positions, and gazed upon the throng of
boats of all makes, shapes and sizes, appear-
ing and disappearing in the dense fog. The
scene reminded ne of that scene from "The
Longest Da\.'" when the shore batter\ com-
mander first sees the in asion fleets appear
before him. It was both beautiful and a little
awe inspiring at the same time. .,
A.s promised. follow' ing a mad charge of
tournament fishermen racing otf to their

boarded .a %ailing pontoon boat for a little

On tiat SLaturda\. m lltirit as a resident of


The Heartland, my thoughts were
about the many things I had seen
and experienced; and the won-
derful people I had met, since
4* arriving in the Greater Sebring
area. In one short week, I had met
/ and conversed with a plethora of
h influential community and busi-
ness leaders, saw high school stu-
dents rewarded for their hard
SHOT work and numerous achieve-
ments, attended ground break-

with events so tragic that they
brought tears to the eyes of veteran journal-
ists.
I found myself humbled by the kind and
gracious treatment I had received, even
though I was a newcomer to the area, alid
the overwhelming support the community
gives to the News-Sun. I sat in that pontoon
boat, on that peaceful lake, amazed by life's
blessings and challenges. ,
Later, I was impressed with the real joy
felt by the other fishermen for the gentle-
man that won the tournament. I was certain
he was well-known to the crowd because of
the way they had' erupted with applause

Firemen go deep to get victory


Knight hits 2 solo
homers, Mourer adds
2-run blast in 8-4 win
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING As the ball
shuttled farther and farther into
the distance and pitcher Cody
Ouverson slammed his glove
against his knee in disgust, it
was obvious it was going to be
a good day for the Firemen's
Jonathan Knight.
One inning after breaking
through for a lead-off home run
to put his team ahead 1-0 in the
bottom of the first, the righty
swatted his second solo shot of
the night his very next at-bat. At
the time, Knight had become a
one-man show for his team,
dominating on the mound as


well.
But three batters later, Zach
Mourer added to that lead with
a two-run tater his first ever
homer and the Firemen
never looked back on the way
to an 8-4 wash over Highlands
Today Friday night.
Knight finished the day 2-
for-3 with three RBIs when a
grounder on his final at-bat was
thrown into the outfield, allow-
ing him to round the bases
again. On the mound, Knight
also shined, striking out seven
of the first nine batters he faced.
But in the fourth frame,
Knight began to lose some of
his control and Highlalids
Today took advantage, plating
its first three runs.
Joel Orozco and Ouverson
both walked to open the inning
and advanced a base on a wild
pitch. After Orozco then scored


on another pitch to the back-
stop, Tyler Shingle drilled a sin-
gle to score Ouverson to make
it 4-2. He soon came home on
three consecutive wild pitches
to narrow the gap to 4-3.
Shingle finished 2-for-3 with
two runs scored.
The Firemen answered
immediately, however, scoring
another run on Knight's wild
third at-bat.
One inning later, that lead
grew when' Dane Maddox led
off the bottom of the fifth with
a walk and was followed with a
single by Jacob Hensley'and a
long triple by Mourer to chase
home both players.
Hensley then madd it 8-3,
scoring on a fielder's choice
before Highlands Today
bounced back with a run in the
sixth when Ouverson came
home on an error.

o. ell through 10 innings in what
would be aa rapid-riie pitchers'
duel by committee for both
teams. HiJhli ght-reel-quality
pla, in the field spiced up a
slow day offensively for both
squads. The: South's Nick


Hernandez struck out three in
the first to start the game, and
the entire South staff recorded
10 strikeouts on the day, as did
the East pitching siJ'f

seven stitches in his hand after
taking a cleat on Friday night,
picked up,the RBI single.

The lead went right back to four runs in the top
of the second, however, when Mora walked and
scored on a wild pitch and Grimaldo singled and
scored on Bash's single to left that put the score
at 6-2.
Coca-Cola blew the game open with a five-run
third, getting RBI singles from Raney Sebring,
and Grimaldo, a run-scoring walk from Mora and
a run-scoring error off the bat of Tindell to take
an 11-2 lead.
Kaitlyn Ostrander came pn in relief for Alan
Jay after that inning and kept Coca-Cola off the
scoreboard the rest of the way, but the offense
couldn't manage a comeback off of Tindell, who
stck out si\
Alan Jay did score a pair of runs in the bottom
of the fifth to make the score more respectable.
Dino Lower reached on an error and came home
when Hershkowitz doubled to left. Hershkowitz
scored when Ostrander reached on an error, and
Alan Jay loaded the bases with one out, but
Tindell got a pair of ground balls to end the game.

Continued from 1E -
man in the eighth and finished
the day l-for-3.
Chris Marrero single-hand-
edly tied it for the South in the
bottom of the eighth. After belt-
ing a single and moving to 'sec-
ond on a Herbie Gutierez walk,
Marrero tagged up and took
third on a pop fly. The blazing
fast Marrero then raced home
after a passed ball for a play at
the plate that might've been
close had any other runner been
on third.
The South took the lead in
the ninth on the strength of their
two Miami-Monsignor Pace
stars. After David Monteagudo
singled to left and stole second,
Adrian Cardenas hit an RBI sin-
gle and moved to second on the
throw home. Marrero picked up
an RBI single with a hot shot to
left.
In the top of the 10th and
Ryan Puskar on first, the East's
Chris Puskar nailed a two-run
homer to left to tie it. It ended
as it begun, with the pitching
overmatching the hitting. The
East left the bases loaded to end
the 10th and the South left a
runner on second.
West 10
North 7
The West came from behind
in the sixth inning and held off
the North to take a 10-7 victory
home in the consolation game
Saturday afternoon.
St. Pete Northeast's Nicholas
Shaw went 3-for-5 with two
runs scored and a double and
Naples' Taylor Hashman scored
three times to lead the way for
the West: Each pitcher worked
two innings for the West and
combined for eight strikeouts in
10 innings.
The North scored first in the
third inning when Justin
Preckajlo walked and Joe
Bowen's infield single drove
him in. Derrick Robinson
picked up an RBI with a looper
to right field and tried to stretch
it to second but was gunned
down by West right fielder
Dylan Brown. Trey Cherry
tacked on two more for the
North with a home run to left in
the't& rth.
The West started off the sixth
inning down 4-3 when Mark
Sobolewski knocked- a single
into right. Orlando Bacon
reached on an error and Robbie
Shields was hit by a pitch to set
up Brown's RBI single. Joey
Tribou hit a sacrifice fly to
bring in Bacon and Brown
scored when Ryan Lockwood
reached on an error.
- The West continued to take
advantage of North mistakes to
add three more in the eighth and
carried a 10-5 lead into the
ninth. Ryan Durrence hit the
first wooden bat home run of

the tourney for the North, but it
was too late when 6-foot-8 inch
Tampa Riverview pitcher
Andrew Barbosa, who has
signed to play for South Florida
Community College, came in to
grab the save.
East 7
West 3
Friday's second game started
right on schedule and lasted the
full 10 innings. The West
jumped out to a 3-0 lead after
Qrlando Bacon reached on a
fielder's choice and Dade City-
Pasco star Robbie Shields fol-
lowed up with a single to left.
Dylan Brown put a charge into
a fastball that sailed to the
warning track with plenty of
distance to score Bacon and
Ryan Lockwood rapped an RBI
single to left scoring Shields.
After Hampton Tignor, who
reached on a third strike wild
pitch, scored on a passed ball,
the West was finished.scoring
for the day.
The East was extremely quiet
through three innings, going
through the expanded, 10-man
batting order only once in that
span. West starting pitcher
Carmine Giardina struck out
the side in the second to finish
with four Ks.
In the fourth, the East bats
came alive for five runs as RBIs
from Jason Stidhum, Max Sapp
and Matt Fairel's two-run dou-
ble sparked'the rally.
The East added two more in
the seventh for and the final
score was set at 7-3.
Highlands County fared well
on the night, as both Sebring's
Chris Welborn and Lake
Placid's Steve Levine produced
.hits and quality at-bats..
Welborn had an RBI single in
the seventh and almost beat out
a chopper to third in his second
plate appearance in the ninth.
Levine battled to a full count
and fouled off several pitches
but struck out in his first at-bat,
then drilled a single to left-cen-
,ter in the ninth.


Both players were welcomed
by rowdy hometown cheers
when they stepped on the field
for the first time.
South 5
North 1
A strobe flash of lightning
and a wall of misty rain moved
over Firemen's Field on Friday
afternoon, delaying the North-
South matchup for over an
hour.
While 'local coaches Dan
Coomes, Hoppy Rewis and
their band of Sebring under-
classmen situated the tarps, the
South team sat on a 4-1: lead
through four innings of play.
In the first of two games on
the day, virtually every pitcher
struggled through at least a tem-
porary bout of the control but-
terflies as the South took a 5-1
win over the North.
The South took an early lead
after Parkland-Douglas catcher
Sean Ochinko drew a walk with
the bases loaded. Moments
later, his teammate David
Christiansen darted home on a
passed ball for a 2-0 tally.
The North squad had. diffi-
c'ulty sustaining any momentum
offensively, hitting the ball
sharply and directly at position
players: time and again. The
South's pitching quartet of
Bryan Morgado, Matt Latos,
John Housey and Cesar Arias
allowed 14 baserunners all day,
but managed to xork then-,
selves out of several tight spots.
Fort Pierce-John Carroll
standout Colteh Willems was
sharp for his three innings,
racking ups strikeouts for the
North.
The South had RBIs again
from Christiansen and Ryan
Jackson in the second, then the
game's big blast from Miami-
Goleman's Victor Madrazo
over the wall in left-center.
Due to the rain delay, the
early game was' reduced to eight
innings, as opposed to the tradi-
tional FACA Classic' 10
innings.


Today in Florida there are more alligators
than ever and that is mostly due to its being on
the federal endangered species list for a couple
of decades beginning in the late 1960s. The
gator population at that time was estimated at a
little over 250,000. Today, there are nearly eight
times as many swimming in Florida's lakes and
streams.
During the same time period, humans have
been moving into the state at a rate of up to
1,000 persons per day. This mass invasion has
brought development of large areas of wetlands
that were once the alligator's domain.
Agriculture has pushed the alligator out of its
wilderness home through draining of hundreds
of acres of marshes and swampy wetlands. This
reptile, which can grow to an enormous size, has
been pushed, prodded and shoved into smaller
and smaller areas that just can't and won't con-
tain them for very long.
In the past few weeks,
alligators have attacked and
killed three people in
Florida, In the years since
1948, attacks by the toothy
.i monsters averaged about
i seven per year with 17
f human deaths recorded.
Why do we suddenly have
three deaths so close togeth-
OUTDOORS er? It is simply coincidence.
Everyone who lives,
Lloyd Jones works or plays around any
n body of fresh Jatier in
Florida needs to be aware of
the danger.,Alligators have been known to dash
out of the water to attack small animals. Able to
run 30 miles per hour, there is little chance for a
human to escape.:
This is the mating season for gators. They are
much more a.r,-ressi\e Lthn normal and will
fight to protect their territory. It i' a good idea to
stay away from the \% water's edge and not dangle
. your feet or hands in the water when boating.
And, needless to say, swimming in a lake
known to contain .alligiuiri'r is not the brightest
idea.
The city of Lakeland was repairing the shore-
line of Lake Morton and had to move 65 swans
to lakes Wire and Mirror while the work pro-
gressed. Several of the sw.an- disappeared. Upon
investigation, they found that allhguaors had
eaten nine of the swans since the first of the
year. A couple of others simply flew away.
Normally, all three of the lakes are free of
alligators, but during this mating season alliga
tors took up residence in all the lakes. Any body
of fresh water can enuce .a ro.n.miin alligator.
They are regularly found in retention ponds and

even in backyard swimming pools.
Several of Florida's lakes are tannic stained to
the point that visibility is limited to a few inch-
es. An alligator can stay under water for hours.
In some of our lakes, a large alligator could hide
in 2 feet of this dark water. This is one way they
ambush prey that use the banks close to the
water's edge.
The hunting and trapping season for alligators
has been extended this year in Florida due to
their large numbers. This may help in reducing
the threat, but using common sense and being
. a are of the danger when around the water can
do much more to reduce the attacks on humans.
It is pure foll) for a person to walk a pet
along the shoreline of anm lake or stream in
Florida. Wading while fishing is ex tremnel- dan- ,.
gerou., .~s one fisherman recently found out
while wading near an island in Lake Istokpoga.
He was lucky in that he only suffered j bile to
his leg. He could have suffered a more terrif ing
fate.,.
Alligators are an important part of Florida's
heritage and play an important role in the ecolo-
g9 of our state's \ etland. A better understand-
ing and broader knowledge of their behavior
u ill help insure that humans, and jlliaaor's-can
continue to coexist.

NOTES
Continued from 1E
Major League scouts than any
since its inception in 1993.
Scout consensus is that as
many as five players, will be
selected in the first round of
the draft from this tournament.
King planning to
make up for lost time,
Winter Park shortstop
Stephen King missed the tour-
nament due to an injured leg
ligament.
The standout player is off on
a whirlwind tour when he's
healthy, heading to Boston and
Washington, D.C., where he
will take batting practice with
the Red Sox and Nationals and
will most likely be taken in the
first round of the major league
draft next month.
Bat wars
The first two home runs hit
in the Classic came off alu-
minnum bats, but the final two


were hit using wood bats.
It was left to the discretion
of the individual player as to
which style bat they used dur-
ing the games.
Guns of the East
East All-Star catchers threw
out three base runners at sec-
ond in the Friday night game
versus the West.
