Wounded soldier hurt by Army's $700 bill


Payment wanted for
stolen field equipment
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Former U.S. Army Sgt.
Daniel Eslinger left active duty service
early after sustaining an injury when his
convoy was attacked in Iraq in March
2005.
But, the final, blow didn't come until
June 1, when he opened his mail.
"When I got the letter in the mail I
assumed it was another award to put up
on the wall," the 25-year-old Sebring
native said, explaining that soldiers rou-
tinely receive end-of-tour awards when
they complete their enlistment. "Instead,
it was a statement of finances o%%ed. It
said I owed $701.77."
On March 20, Eslinger xas leading a
convoy of gun trucks to Baghdad
International Airport when a civilian
, vehicle struck his at full speed, he said.
Assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division,
Eslinger was a squad leader in a compa-
ny-level gun truck platoon.
As such, he was riding in the front
passenger seat when his vehicle came
under attack by the civilian vehicle,
which struck his door injuring his back
and left shoulder.
He was taken to a combat hospital
about 13 miles south of Baghdad, where
he was held for a few hours before being
flown to Landstuhl, Germany, on a C-
130.
"Over there, 13 miles is forever," he
said, recalling, the events that led up to
his early discharge.
He said he was in Germany three or
four days then he was flown to Dwight

Recreation department



gets new ride in old bus


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON .PARK- There's a
new bus in town, and children
participating in the city's sum-
mer recreation program will
soon take it for a spin.
The School Board of
Highlands County has trans-
ferred a bus to the city's recre-
ation department, giving partic-
ipants the freedom to go on
more outings than ever before.
"In the past," Parks and'
Recreation Director Tony'
Anderson said, "we had to rent
vans from Enterprise anytime
we wanted to go anywhere, and
it was very expensive."
Due to the tight budget con-
straints under which the depart-
ment operates, not having its
own transportation has severely
limited activity options.
"This will really enhance our
program," Anderson said. "It
will provide a better service for
parents and allow us to do a lot
more for the kids. Now we'll be
able to take them on a trip any-
time we want to."
Anderson foresees trips to
places such as. the library, the
fire department, the Children's
Museum of the Highlands, a
possible barbecue at the newly
beautified Donaldson Park, and
other such outings.
Roy Wright, director of the
school district's transportation,
said transferring the bus was
something that The School
Board of Highlands County
voted to do when Anderson
made the request awhile back.
"Usually when we get rid of
a bus," Wright said, "the pur-
chasing department auctions it
off. But we can routinely trans-
fer property between agencies,
and the board made the decision

Steve Kempe, of K&B Enterprises, paints a bus Saturdai morning

Avon Park Recreation Department. The bus was donated by the
Highlands County School Board and will help provide transporta-
tion for the recreation department's summer program.


to do that in this case."
The bus will sport a fresh
coat of white paint and red let-
tering identifying it as "City of
Avon Park Recreation
Department," thanks to the
work of Steve Kempe, a city
firefighter who paints vehicles
as a part-time job.,
Anderson said, "I'd like to
thank the school board for their
generosity. We will keep main-
tenance for the bus in the budg-


et and take good care of it and
use if for as long as we can."
While the bus is wonderful to
have and will serve as a tremen-
dous benefit, one thing it does-
n't have is an air conditioner,
which is not in Anderson's
budget at this time.
Anyone who would like to
donate an air conditioner unit
for the bus or help pay for one
can call the recreation depart-
ment at 452-4414.


Three arrested



after second



home invasion

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
S.VON PARK For the second time in just nine days, two
home invasions have occurred in Avon Park both targeting
senior citizens.
Two men RaNmond Charles Stevens. 39. and Donald W.
Cady. 34. both of Avon Park were arrested after breaking into
the home 6f an elderly couple,in the 300 block of Grove Circle
at 2 a.m. Friday. The victims were a hus-
band, 65, and wife, 62.
Using a crowbar to break into the door,
Stevens made his way through the house
with Cady. According to police reports,
noise from inside the % victims' bedroom drew
their attention. Ste\ens entered the room.
Turning on the light and seeing thit the vic-
timni were in bed, he raised the crowbar ,,;
above his head, telling them not to move.. -
He asked them where their money was, CADY
saying that if they told him, no one would
get hurt, police said.
Reports indicate the victims told Stevens
that their wallets were in the kitchen. Under "
his orders, Cady went to search them out.
:Finding the wallets in the kitchen, he took
the cash and then ripped the phone out of the
kitchen wall.
Prompt reporting of the incident helped
officers' to apprehend the suspects quickly.
"A number of officers were responding,"
Police Chief Frank Mercurio said. "Some STEVENS
were on the scene and some were driving
through the streets in the area looking for the
suspects."
Even though they had no description of the four-door, gray.
1995 Mercury that the perpetrators were driving, police officers
spotted the vehicle,speeding out of the area and pulled it over,
Mercurio said.
Stevens and Cady were found in the car with the cash. They
were positively identified by one of the victims.
After ha\ ing been read their Miranda rights, both confessed
their in ol\ement in the invasion, saying that they had a drug
problem and did it to get money for crack cocaine, a report said.
Mercurio said, "They. (suspects) were staying at Steven's
mother's home on Grove Circle while she is away, and had met
the couple at the community pool earlier. They felt they (vic-
tims) would be easy victims."
Both Cady and Stevens have an extensive criminal past,

Cancer survivor includes


triathlon training in recovery


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The waters
were calm Friday afternoon
before seven triathletes took to
the waters of Lake Jackson for a
training swim.
Led by Heidi Crutchfield, the
group set their sights on a blue-
roofed home, slowly propelling
themselves through the water.
Among them were Steve
Gordon, a Sebring doctor'who
is recovering from his second
bout with leiomyosarcoma, a
cancer of the soft tissue.
.. I just consider this part of
my recovery," Gordon said, sit-
ting at the dining room table at
his ex-wife's home, on
Lakeview Drive on Friday as he
discussed the upcoming
Heartland Triathlon While he
,waited for the swim.
In 1994 he was first tdiag-
nosed with cancer -- a tumor
on his left kidney -- after he ran
Disnev's inaugural marathon.
Despite the cancer, he ran the
marathon again in December of,
the same year, he said.
-After recovering from the,
cancer, Gordon began cbmpet-
ing in triathlons at the behest of
Eric Moore, a" local business-.
inmn and friend who Gordon
-met running the marathons.
"Eric had a lot to do with get-


ting a lot of us into triathlons,"
Gordon said, referring to the
local tri community which
included those who swam with
Gordon on Friday Joan
Siracuse (his ex-wife), their
daughter Alana, Jim Griffin,
Crutchfield, Jeff Carlson and
Francisco Espaillat.
Gordon began competing in
various events including what
he considers his greatest
accomplishment, the 2003
Escape From Alcatraz.
I "It's a very challenging
race," he said of the California
venue.
In December 2004 he again
faced cancer, this time two large
lesions were found on his liver.
"The past year and a half was
taken by various treatments and
surgeries," he said, joking that
he has few remaining organs to
donate. "To be able to do this
(Heartland Triathlon in July) is
,a celebration."
i Gordon, despite training ata
beginner's level as he recuper-
ates, is one of the coaches. tfor
the Florida Hospital tri training
A team which, meets at 6 p.m.
Thursday at the Sebring loca-
tion until the race.
"Today's 'pace is -going to
depend on Alana," Gordon said,
explaining that this was his
daughter's first. open-water


Heartland Triathlon registration

Early registration for the Heartland Triathlon closes
Thursday. To register for the race, which runs the morn-,
ing of July 16, participants can go to www.active.comn or
send the brochure to the Ridge Trails Association, the
benefactor of the race, at Box 7993, Sebring, 33872.
Race categories include elite, age group,
Clydesdale/Athena, fat tire, novice and relay. However,
those registering online will find that Active.com doesn't
have a category for the relay event, a problem the steer-
ing committee is trying to fix, Cherie Starr, tainting coor-
dinator for the triathlon, said Tuesday.
Dan Andrews, event chairman, will contact
Active.com to fix the problem but by Thursday there still
was no provision for signing up as a relay team.
Local residents are encouraged to bring hard-copy
registration forms, with a list of team members, to any
Florida Hospital fitness center (there's one each in Avon
Park, Lake Placid andreebringg),,,er,.to th6"Greater
Sebring Chamber of Cdmmerce-office on the- Circle.
A separate'registration issue pertains to the "pasta
bash" the night before the race, which will feature
Olympic gold medalist and motivation speaker Sheila
Taormina at Kenilworth Lodge. Seating is limited and
advanced reservations for the $12 dinner are encour-.
aged. Active.com doesn't support registering for the -
pasta bash, so those wishing to attend need to pur- "
chase their tickets (which go on sale Monday) at the
Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce.'

swim.
Like her father and mother,
14-year-old Alana is training
for the Sebring triathlon,
Actually, Siracuse is training
for the Lake Placid, N.Y.,
Ironman distance race with
Crutchfield, Gordon said, not-
ing that Friday's nearly-mile
long swim across Lake Jackson
was excessive for July's
"sprint" distance race here.
Gordon and Alana swam near
each other, pausing on occasion
to make sure they could see the
others.
A boat piloted by Dan
Hammock trailed the group
ready to provide relief for tired
swimmers.
Before they got in the lake,
Gordon predicted that his
daughter would need to get in
the boat after about 10 minutes.
"I can't believe my daughter
beat me," Siracuse said, about
35 minutes later after she
reached Alana 'who was stand-
ing in the chest-deep water.
Alana climbed aboard the
boat while the others did a five-
minute, high-tempo swim
before joining Alana.
"I haven't swam since 2003,"
Gordon said, during the ride
back.
In January, Gordon experi-
enced complications and
weighed 138 pounds. Now, he's
about 178 pounds.
"I wa, skin and bones." he
said. "I really) had a tough time
recovering at that time."
Siracuse'was a source of sup-
port for him.
"I've had tremendous sup-
port, especially from Joan,"
Gordon said. "She's been there
through everything."
But family, friends, neigh-
bors and even patients, were
reliable sources of moral sup-


port too.
"You never really know
where your support isgoing to
come from when you fall on
tough times." he said. "That
support especially for a cancer
pauent is. Wlless- `,

Running is still painful for
him, he said, explaining that he
works out in, each event -
swimming, cycling, and run-
-ning twice a week now.
"I pretty much have to walk .
and jog a lot,". he said. "But on
the swim and bike I'm coming

Kircher retires and 'cuts


tie' with sheriff's office


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Det. Sgt.
George Joseph "Jay" Kircher
has initiated a new tradition at
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office.
On Friday, Criminal
Investigations Supervisor Lt.
John Chess cut Kircher's neck-
tie to show he will no longer
have to wear one. Kircher has
retired after 22 1/2 years.
Undersheriff Col. Terry
Lewis brought the tradition
from the Sarasota County. Cut
ties get tacked to the bulletin
board to show how many
deputies have retired.
Kircher took a good ribbing
from his fellow deputies during
a party in his honor Friday
afternoon.
"Starting tomorrow," Under-
sheriff Col. Terry Lewis said,
"every day is Saturday."
"Not according to his wife,"
quipped Deputy J.P. Fane, who
later presented Kircher with the
Fraternal Order of Police
Retirement Award.
Lewis said Capt. Booker
Johnson, over Law
Enforcement Support Services,
was the deputy who took
Kircher's fingerprints on Nov.
20, 1982, for an employment
check.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Highlands
County Ivory Committee will
hear Max Linn from the Florida
Citizens Against Term Limits at
its regular meeting Thursday.
Hot on the heels of a vote in
Tallahassee to withdraw a
measure to extend legislators
term of office, activist Max
Linn plans to stop in Highlands
County to discuss that and other
initiatives put forward by his
group.
The controversial measure
would have seen legislators try
to extend their terms of office

County included
Special to the News-Sun
Congress has agreed to give
$5.2 billion in disaster relief to
Florida 39 counties, includ-
ing Highlands and other
states hit by hurricanes last
year.
The money is included in a
broader $94.5 billion spending
bill approved by House and
Senate negotiators Friday
morning. The vast majority of
the money included in the sup-


Kircher was hired anyway,
deputies joked. Fane quipped
that he is probably still wanted
somewhere.
Dedicated
Lewis said Kircher joined the
auxiliary in 1983, while work-
ing at Seminole Tire, then
became a full-time deputy
under the late Sheriff Joe
Sheppard.
In the mid-1990s, Kircher
joined the Special Response
and Tactics team, and soon
found it was a young man's
business, Lewis said.
Before that happened, how-
ever, he was the agency sniper.
Sheriff's Counsel Mike
Durham said Kircher's nick-
name with the road patrol was
"Dr. Blind."
Compassionate
Kircher has ia reputation for
making extra effort to help vic-
tims recover stolen goods or
their sense of safety. His
employee file contains as many
as four dozen letters of thanks
or congratulations, Lewis said,
joking that Kircher probably
wrote three dozen himself.
"I needed all the help I could
get," Kircher joked.
One letter said Kircher plain-
ly enjoys his career, with com-
passion for people and a pas-


through a ballot referendum. As
it.was, the Florida House voted
103-14 and the Senate voted
down the measure that would
have extended term limits by a
26-14 margin.
Linn said the margin of vic-
tory for their movement shows
a total surrender and feel they
have the momentum to win the
war against career politicians.
He launched the "Eight is
Still Enough" under the banner
of Florida Citizens Against
Term Limits. Linn and the
Citizen's group also are spon-
soring a voter initiative to end


sion for his job. Other letters
said his compassion for burgla-
ry victims, whether he could
recover their property or not,
helped them heal.
Honest
In October 1991, former
Sheriff Howard Godwin
received a letter from a burglary
victim thanking Kircher for
retrieving stolen items and
helping the victim load them in
his car at the sheriff's office.
Lewis read that Kircher gave
the victim a business card
telling him to call if he needed
anything. The victim reached in
his wallet to do the same, and
thinking the victim was offering
money, Kircher said, "Oh, no!
You don't have to do that!"
"You can't make this up,"
Lewis said.
Alert
While working security at the
12 Hours of Sebring, he once
"stunned and stopped" a couple
of offenders from escaping
from the raceway. He received
praise for "quickness and alert
action," Lewis said.
Kircher said he had to use a
fist, and it hurt. Chess joked
that Kircher actually used a
beer bottle.
Dedicated
Kircher was ready to retire


taxpayer funded pensions for
legislators.
Another, called "Eight &
Out," would prevent legislators
from running for office after
they have served their full
eight-year term. The idea there
is to prevent politicians from
switching office to skirt the
intent of the term limit law.
Linn will make his presenta-
tion in the meeting room of
Homer's .in Sebring...Square
Shopping Plaza at 6 p.m.
Thursday. Dutch treat dinner
starts at 5 p.m. The public is
invited.

gation efforts and public servic-
es.
"Many people in Florida's

gling to recover from last year's

He also enjoys riding his

his colleagues often.

said.

USDA imposes state-wide quarantine


Special to the News-Sun
LAKELAND The U.S.
Department of Agriculture
informed interested stakehold-
ers on June 6 that a statewide
quarantine will be imposed on
the shipment of fresh Florida
citrus fruit to other citrus-pro-
ducing states next season.
While this quarantine may
prove devastating for some
Florida citrus companies whose
primary markets are other cit-
rus-producing states, the
Florida citrus industry recog-
nizes the USDA and Secretary
of Agriculture Mike Johanns'
efforts to find a solution to the
challenges presented by citrus
canker. Florida Citrus Mutual
also recognizes Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture


and Consumer Services Charlie
Bronson for his efforts on this
issue, and his commitment to
finding solutions to re-open
these markets in future seasons.
"Secretary Johanns has
shown tremendous support for
the Florida citrus industry dur-
ing his tenure with the USDA,"
said Jay Clark, Florida Citrus
Mutual, interim' executive vice
president/chief executive offi-
cer. "We are confident that the
USDA will continue to seek
solutions to allow us to once
again ship to all of our trade
partners."
The quarantine will allow the
continued shipment of fresh
fruit to non-citrus producing
states and other countries under
certain restrictions. The rules


governing the quarantine are
expected to be published by the
end of this summer.
Citrus-producing states cur-
rently represent approximately
five percent of Florida's domes-
tic fresh fruit market, and
approximately 2.5 percent of
the overall fresh fruit market.
Florida Citrus Mutual,
founded in 1948, is the state's
largest citrus grower organiza-
tion with more than 10,000
members. The Florida citrus
industry provides a $9.1 billion
annual economic impact to the
state, employs nearly 90,000
people and provides more than
650,000 acres of greenspace.

Panther Youth Partners teens


are making good on goals


Special to the News-Sun
As graduating seniors learn, the much-antici-
pated world of adult freedom can swamp them in
unforeseen responsibilities.
Three recent high school graduates are facing
those responsibilities with confidence, having
learned how to handle real-life challenges and
prepare for college and the working world
through the Panther Youth Partners program.
Tameka Williams, Jackson Frenot, and
Lakeesha Hillard learned how to manage a
monthly budget, balance a checkbook, and devel-
op some of the job skills they'll need in their
future careers. Most importantly, the 18-year-olds
agreed, weekly meetings with a mentor over the
past few years have kept them focused on contin-
uing their education in colleges throughout the
state.
Panther Youth Partners is funded by the
Heartland Workforce Development Board Inc.
and administered by South Florida Community
College. Eddie Cuencas, the program specialist
based at SFCC's Highlands Campus in Avon
Park, said Panther Youth Partners serves' ninth-
through 12th-graders who come from low-
income families or who are performing poorly in
certain basic skills, such as math and reading.
The year-long program begins in July with a
two-week Panther Youth Camp,. where partici-
pants learn practical life management skills and
begin exploring careers they find appealing. They
research careers at SFCC's Career Center and get
additional tutoring in reading and math at SFCC's
Tutoring and Learning Center (TLC).
Once the school year begins, they meet with a
mentor each week. If they need additional tutor-
ing to pass their classes, the mentors provide it or
arrange it through another teacher. They continue
to discuss their long-term career goals, such as
attending a college or vocational school, and par-
ticipate in job shadowing in fields that interest
them. In June, they close the year by reviewing
their accomplishments at another two-week
camp.


The program's overall goal is to help teens
graduate from high school and send them off into
the world prepared for college or work. Each par-
ticipant's performance is measured.by his or her
scores on the College Placement Test (CPT),
something colleges typically consider when
admitting prospective students.
About 90 students have been enrolled in
Panther Youth Partners over the past year.
Nineteen graduating seniors were recognized at
the year-end banquet in June.
Some participants have made remarkable
accomplishments, Cuencas said. "For me, the sat-
isfaction comes from seeing the ultimate product.
It's working with someone who is faced with
challenges and having the great feeling that you
contributed to their success. The community feels
the impact."
Williams, of Avon Park, found value in discov-
ering the possibilities that await her in the work-
ing world and learning the practical steps she
must take to turn her dreams into reality. She
learned that setting goals gave her something to
strive for.
"Having, goals keeps you from wandering
around life, trying everything, because you don't
know what you want to do," Williams said.
"When you set goals and you reach them, it
encourages you to set another."
As Williams revealed in her address to her
peers at the Panther Youth Partners annual ban-
quet recently, she set the goal of achieving a 4.0
grade point average during her senior year.
Despite the demands of raising her newborn son
and her struggles to keep up with her coursework
while finishing her education at home, Williams
ended the year with a 4.3.
After job shadowing at Avon Elementary
School, the Avon Park Teen Parent Program and
the Avon Park Community Care Center, Williams
became interested in nursing. Having graduated
from Avon Park High School in May, she plans to
begin taking prerequisite courses in hopes of
being accepted into SFCC's Nutirin._ Pr,:,r.ini.


Panther Youth Partners participant Tameka M\illiams, of .-%on Park. use. SFCt.".s Tulniiig and
Learning Center to brush up on her math skills through Math.com. The new graduate of Avon Park
High School is preparing to take the Scholastic Achievement Test with the hopes of starting classes at
SFCC in the fall.

Betty Bynes (left), a business teacher at DeSoto High School, has been a mentor to Lakeesha Hillard
through Panther Youth Partners. Having graduated from DeSoto High School, Hillard wants to attend a
culinary arts school.


Through Panther Youth Partners, Williams
developed her own career portfolio, which cata-,
logs each task she must perform in order to attend
nursing school.
"Panther Youth Partners helps you figure out
what kind of career you want," Williams said. "It
helps you with job skills and employment."
Being able to meet weekly with a series of
mentors was invaluable to Frenot, a recent gradu-
ate of Hardee Senior High School. His football
coach, John Sharp, steered him into the program
and became his first mentor.
The multi-talented Frenot had always planned
on 2,-'in: ito college but admits he never had a
concrete plan for d ing th.ii until his coach began

Youth Partners came from having opportunities
to make friends with her peers in the program.
Until then, because of a speech impediment and
her participation in DeSoto High School's
Exceptional Student Education program, she had
struggled to connect with other students, accord-
ing to her mentor and business teacher, Betty
Bynes.
"She enjoyed interacting with the other kids,"
Bynes said. "She wanted to be with them all the
time; and they looked after her, too."
For her job shadowing exercise, Hillard tended,
to preschool children at the Early Clildhood'
Center in Arcadia. Once her two weeks were
over, she 'oniinuidJ ni0luneerin:. at the center for


F .1, 4'.L

another year. During that time, Bynes watched
the shy teen come out of her shell.
Eventually, Hillard decided she had other inter-
ests. Having graduated from DeSoto High School
in May, she is looking into attending a culinary
arts school with the hopes of becoming a chef.
"We'll continue to monitor her for one year,"
Cuencas said. "Lakeesha is a very bright girl and
has the ability to be extremely successful."
"I feel like I'm ready for the world," Hillard
said.

Planning jobs out in their heads


WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

Trimming

away history
Here was another assign-
ment where I didn't get to do
any work, except for directing
traffic for less than five min-
utes.
But that doesn't mean noth-
ing happened, it did.
I spent time this week in
Avon Park with Travis
Crosson as he cut down a tree.
Recently widowed, the
property owner was in no
mood to take chances with
large trees in powerful storms.
One tree in particular, a
large oak that stood at least 45
feet high, towered over her
roof and branched into the
power lines that ran along the
road. ',' ..,' -

AVON PARK Like many
others before him, Travis
Crosson backed into his life's
work.
In college he had majored in
business, but upon graduating
began working out at the Avon
Park Correctional Institution on
the 4 p.m. to midnight shift.
In 1996, he began to work
part-time for a tree service com-
pany. He told his wife Dawn
he'd bring in a little extra
money to help pay the bills.
These are famous last words,
because by 1999 he was work-
ing trees full time, and now he
hires others.
He loves what he does, and
wouldn't trade places with any-
one. "We go to work and make
people happy," he said, "and
there's nothing better than
that."
While there are tree service
training programs, Crosson
warns they're only useful up to
a point.
"It', like going to the police
acade mi," he said. "It definitely
helps, bLt you don't really learn
.an thin 111111 until you're out in the
public..
,"That's because no two trees
are the same, and no two spots
are identical."
He said good sense and a
good work ethic were more
important than education.,
"You could be a Ph.D. and
you could end up killing your-
self or someone else," he said.
"It's really a lot of paying atten-
tion."
Tree trimmers plan a job out
in their heads, before they make
their first cut.
They are like surgeons or
b0t'licerl or really good barbers,

team leaders, "Stick"
Chambers.
"Stick can look at a tree and
tell you limb by limb, and in
what order, he's going to cut it.
That's something you can't
learn in school" Crosson said.

"That kind of skill only
comes with e\perience." he
said.
Still this is one job where a
general knowledge of physics
and algebra can be a big help.
And botany doesn't hurt either.
Crosson doesn't like cutting
down trees just for the sake of
the cut. He said he.has mi.n 11,ii'

Sometimes, however, the tree
will threaten,a house, or c.atie

Ci:, ,?rn s.id the best way to
trim a tree is to raise its clion

HISTORY
Continued from 13A
end of a stick (maybe 10 to 15
feet long) and a light power
saw he could hold in one hand.
, In the mean time another
,worker, "Stick" (named for the
'saw) Chambers, worked on the
limbs that had grown into the
power lines.
The main reason Crosson
,didn't want me to work on this
tree, is that it required experi-
enced hands.
It turns out a person can
.greatly control how a limb will
fall by the way it is cut.
For example, they were
,using a cut Crosson calls a
breaking jump cut.
Cutting on the front of the
bottom side of a branch, he.
makes a cut only partly
!through. Then moving the saw
1a couple of inches to the side,
e makes a second cut at the
back of the bottom of the
branch, also not all the way
,through. The branch breaks
from its own weight, and the
distance between the cuts
,cause the limb to jump as it
'breaks free. That means the
limb falls straight down.
Which in this case meant it
'missed the power lines.
The noise, while this is
going on, by the way, was
tremendous. Everyone work-
ing, except for me, wore pro-
tective ear gear. Each head set
,had an antenna sticking out of
,it. I thought that meantithe
'head sets were also walkie
talkies. Instead they were
radios, so the men can listen to
music while they work.
But the noise is so loud, you
couldn't hear yourself speak
.even if you had walkie talkies,
The men use hand signals
instead.
For example, tapping the top
,of your head means, "Move.
your butt quickly," because, of
course, something is about to
'hit you on the head. ,
; Actually the men have a
,shortcut word they use for dan-
,ger Crosson said this term
is universal among tree trim-
,mers through out the country
- the.\ yell "headache" to
each other be.au'c'.'bf coue
(tai's hai\t you get when
-onmethine hit \ou i the
'head.
Crosson said he and his fam-
ily use, the word generally for
,any kind of danger.
I did get a chance to ride in
the cherry picker, when the

This is a cherry picker's view of the world. The arm can extend to
65 feet, but Tuffley only went to 55. This shot was taken at about the
45 foot mark.


tree was 90 percent down, and
Crosson had the time to
indulge me.
The first difficulty was just
getting into it. The bucket is
very deep something I was
thankful for as it rose up into
the sky. There are steps in
strategic places to climb to its
rim, but from there I had to
swing my legs over and into it.
Keep in mind the bucket, even
when resting is over six feet
from the ground.
Any way, I got my bottom
resting on the rim and one leg
swung up when the second leg
kind of got stuck. Try as I
could, I couldn't swing it up
high enough. This was partly ,
because I was afraid of falling
backward, and partly because
my left leg was hanging inside
the bucket, still a good foot off
the floor.
Crosson had to come to my
rescue. He grabbed the outside
ankle and pulled it inside. At
that point I rather heavily land-
ed both feet. One of them on
Crosson's toes.
That turned out to be the
easy part however: Going up
was the trip. becatise'\.e Ii js
'kept on going \\e zipped
through my comfort zone in
seconds.
By the time the slender, tiny,
skinny, puny, toothpick of a
hydraulic arm was fully (I
thought) extended at 55 feet,


we were so far up I could see
to Hardee County in one direc-
tion and Polk County in anoth-
er. City hall looked like a little
girl's doll house.
The only reason I didn't
scream was I kept my camera
to my eye shooting pictures. It
was as if it distanced me from
the height and kept me safe,
because when I lowered it' to
really look, my palms started
to sweat.
Even so, I thought I had
kept my cool and hidden my
abject terror.
Imagine my chagrin when
we were back on terra firma
(getting out was easier, like
getting out of a pool), when
Crosson told me he hadn't
taken me up the final 10 feet
because "it really feels eerie,"
and he'd known from my face
I'd already had enough.
It turned out to be quite a
.day for a man who didn't do
anything but tremble. In some
places this would be work.
,


SEBRING Recently th e
Embarq Corporation reopened
32 retail stores across its 18-
state territory, after a two-day,
marathon makeover to pull
from history the old Sprint col-
ors and swap them with Embarq
.green.
With the reopenings, cus-
tomers can see and experience
the company's complete portfo-
lio of products and.services -
from voice products to Internet,
from entertainment and data
services to wireless and gaming
products all in a new retail
setting.
"The store change-out is
more than visual. We're bring-'
ing common-sense ideas, reli-
able service and a renewed
commitment to the communi-
ties we serve," said Dan Hesse,
chairman, president and chief
executive officer of Embarq.'
"We invite people to visit our
stores to experience full-serv-
ice, integrated communications
products and services that,
when combined, offer new
ways for our customers to
enhance how they communi-
cate,' enjoy entertainment, play
electronic games and share
information."


Store employees spent the
weekend in intensive training
sessions to get up to speed on
all products and services in the
stores, while four-person multi-
functional employee teams
removed from the stores every
hint of Sprint "red" including
all collateral, literature, dis-
plays, interior and exterior
signs and products.
"Our employee volunteer
teams underwent in-depth train-
ing programs in which they
were taught how to properly
assemble displays and attach
new signs for a perfect transfor-

"Most companies hire outside
professionals to complete their
store conversions. But this is
our chance to show the local
communities where we operate
that we6 mean business. We are
committed to success; and
we're .going to show up and
prove it." ,
Over the course of the. next
year, Embarq will open new
lifestyle concept stores around
the country, focusing on
demonstrating how practical
innovation in communications
can enhance how. people live.


By December, the company
anticipates that 55 to 60
Embarq retail stores will be
open around the country.
Additionally, the company
plans to enhance the availabili-
ty of products and services for
business customers at the retail
stores. In June, Embarq will
unveil eight "store-within-a-
store" locations in select retail
areas for the sole purpose of
consulting with and customiz-
ing solutions for.business cus-
tomers. In July, six more
Embarq retail stores will con-
tain a business "store-within-a-
store", and, 10 more will be
added by the end of the year.
Embarq recently separated
from Sprint Nextel. As a result
of the separation, the company
is focusing its efforts on the
'development of new products
and services that are easy to
understand and competitively
priced. As a result of the separa-
tion, no retail jobs will be lost;
and Embarq is hiring sales asso-
ciates and customer service
associates for its stores.

Two theories abound as to edition Highlands County, which

thinks his two birds, who live in
his bathroom, are to blame.
That these birds are attracting
creatures he calls "meal moths"
into our humble home. I am not
sure how James says they
like the seeds and other things
ip the bird's feeding trough.
The other theory, which Don
and I think is far more likely, is
that some people keep leaving
the back door open. Some peo-
ple, (and by "some people" I
mean "my two teenage sons")
leave the back door open while
Perky goes outside to do what
we call around here. "his busi-
ness." Since Perky sometimes
also chooses to wander around


So, we have moths. Now
there may be some nature
lovers' reading this who think,
no big deal, moths are part of
the great Circle of Life and they
won't hurt you. All of this may
be true. Except for one thing.
One thing that makes these
moths the scum of the earth as
far as I am concerned.
They got into my chocolate.
I know. this because Don says.
they did. Don went into the
pantry and discovered (please
stop eating for a minute .before
you read this) a worm in some
chocolate. He says the moths
put it there. .
I am glad he found the worm


shares the chocolate


instead of me. Me finding a
worm in chocolate I planned to
eat would have elicited a
scream that would have broken
glass for miles. Plus I would
have had heart failure. But
knowing about it, I can handle
the situation calmly. Even
though this means war.
Because NO ONE messes
with my chocolate.
Lest you think this worms-in-
chocolate thing is something
new or strange, I refer you to an
article I found on rediff.com, a
Web site of news from India.
According to the article, dated
Oct. 18, 2003, a man was hand-
ing out candy bars to his col-
leagues to .celebrate his birth-
day. The party was ruined when
about half the candy bars were
found to contain, in the %%ords
of the article, "pale brownish
worms." The chief food inspec-
tor was informed.
For the brave (or strange)
among us, there is also the Web
site www. insectcandy. comn,
which sells -. I am not kidding
- edible bugs. Not only can you,
get chocolate covered ants, you


can get what they call an "insect
sucker," which is a lollipop
with a real cricket inside. A
great gag gift, according to the
site, or atreat for your next bug,
Halloween, or Survivor .party!
(Side note: How many peo-
ple do you know who hold "bug
parties?")
I live in South Central
Florida, which means along
with coping with hot tempera-
tures, alligators and potential
hurricanes I also have to share
my living space with various
insects. But I draw the line at
eating the critters. I like my
chocolate dark, plentiful and
worm free, thank you very
much. Worms need to live out-
side, where Perky can chase
them to his heart's content.
I could probably share more
about this subject, but I think I
will stop for now. This topic is
starting to bug me.

What's the

difference?
Editor:
To the'first base coach for.
Goin' Postal on Monday, June
5. After I finished my softball
game Monday night,. I came
over to cheer for some of the.
boys on the team. My team-
mates and I sat in the stands on
the first base side.
As we watched, one of your
players swung hard on a good
fastball and got a.little tangled.
It happens to me too. You
yelled down at himrn, loudly,
"What's that? We're not soft-
.ball players."
I was wondering coach,
could you explain the differ-
ence between softball and base-
ball players to me? Or, how a
ladO_-\ ton l'gan cattU J'bitehbil
rlavyr, to become a softball
player? The only real differ-
ence in the players that I know
of is that softball players are
,girls andi baseball players are'
boys.. We both practice hard.
We both fight to win. We both
lo\ e the game.

Murtha is not

fit for office
Editor:
We receive our home town
paper from Pennsylvania ,... I
notice there were very few let-,
ters to the editor against Rep.!
John P. Murtha's view on the,
Iraq War.
I was rather disappointed
more letters were not written
objecting to Rep. Murtha's out-,
spoken comments regarding his
view on the Iraq, war and our
soldiers, especially when
Somerset County was the place
that Flight 93 came down.
,. Could the reason be, .the
Somerset Daily American will
not print the letters they
received?
Or is the area blackmailed.
because Rep. Murtha is being
credited for bringing in jobs -in
the depressed area and fear of
being outspoken will costs
those jobs in the future.
Murtha has been elected 17
times and is up for re-election
again this coming election.
Thirty-three years of bragging.
he brought in jobs, but yet the
areas of his district are still
depressed.
First people are not aware
that when a company gets in
trouble with frauding the feder-
al government in federal con-
tracts, the federal government
penalties are to put their com-
pany's business in depressed
areas.
Back in the 1980's in the 12th'
district there were a few of
these businesses that were
brought into the 12th district,
but they did not stay very long.
But I was given a joyful
uplifting, when I received the
newspaper regarding the

Memorial Day activities and
found the number of areas that.
celebrated every war any
American. soldier, both male
and female, served celebrating
Memorial Day.
Especially the celebration on
the Somerset Court ,House
steps. It was noted earlier that
the "powers .to be" were can-
celing Memorial Day activities
because of lack of citizens
interest.,
A few veterans got together
-and this is what happened on
Memorial Day in the town of
Somerset.
1. A Somerset judge was the
speaker.
2. 300 people listened to the
judge on the steps of the court
,house
3. 1,300 people lined the
'streets to watch 30 units march
by.
This was all done in a very.
short time, when the notifica-
tion of canceling anything in
the town of Somerset to cele-
brate Memorial Day was
announced.
It should be noted that many
areas outside the town df
Somerset have their own
Memorial Day celebrations
also. .
I think that this is the answer
from the residents of Somerset
County both democrats,
republicans, and non-voters -
that Rep. John P. Murtha decla-
rations of the Iraq War is not
accepted in Somerset County,
Penn.
'Let's hope on election day,


.that Rep. John P. Murtha will
not receive the majority of
votes he has in other elections
and the women on the
Republican ticket who do
not have the same opinion of
the Iraq war and our Soldiers
serving to keep this country
free will overcome the
blackmail fears of jobs lost if
Rep. John P. Murtha's does not
go back t6 Washington D.C. as
his campaigns were always on
...to re-elect Rep. John P.
Murtha who brings in jobs.,

Who owns what

in the Keys?

Editor:
If you believe you own prop-
erty in Monroe County-Florida
Keys, it would pay you to
check immediately with the
court recorder in Tavemier or
Key West, since there has been
gaping and numerous discrep-
ancies in who owns what in the
Keys.
I have owned property there
since 1970, put a house on it in
1982, rented it in 1989, tried to
sell in 1995, only to find the
rental tenant owned it since
1995. They are still there.
Surprise! They have a mort-
gage of $300,000 on the place
in their name.
The sheriff to whomI report-
ed this strange occurrence
seemed to disbelieve, (think-
ing) this whole thing was a fig-


ment of my imagination and I
would rather believe that, if I
had not lost close to a million
dollars due to the bull market in
real estate in the Keys.
My place is located at 236
Orchid St., Tavemier, forgers
and all, right on Tavernier
Creek.

'Drop Dead'i

full of laughs

Editor
Over the many years the tal-
ented.' hard' rking volunteers
at the Highlands Liutle Theatre
have worked so hard to keep us
entertained, and. -amused and
their work goes on and on. I
have just seen their latest,
"Drop Dead" and believe me,
this one is really different.
We are shown what goes on
during rehearsals. I am not
going to spoil it by telling you
about it. I will just say that
from the time you are seated
until you leave, you are in for
surprises and lots of laughter. I
appreciated the stage setting,
.especially the "chairs" 'and join
in with the laughter; it will real-
ly raise your spirits. Fantastic
acting and Art Harriman, you
outdid yourself and I give you
my vote for the Zenon Award.
Looking forward, to the next
one, "Grease," coming in
August.

Confessions of a speed demon


I am in big trouble.
I feel I am one step
away from deja vu all
over again.
Ford recently
announced the
release of the Ford
Mustang Shelby
Cobra GT500. It has
450 horses with dual-
racing stripes. I
believe I am being
tempted beyond my
ability to resist.
A similar car, a
1966 Ford Mustang
Shelby GT350, in


white with dual blue racing
stripes, got me in a little trouble
when I was 14 years old.
My father was in the car busi-
ness. I learned to drive when I was
12, and was on occasion sent to
the store about a quarter mile
away to get groceries. My mother
did not drive, my father worked
long hours, and my older sister
had moved out, so I was the logi-
cal choice ... except I did not have
a driver's license. That, did not
seem to bother anybody at the
time.
I was taught to love cars, and I
felt comfortable around them. I
particularly loved cars with pow-
erful, big-block engines. I believe
that puts me in the same category
as 99.9 percent of all American
males.
In the fall ot 1966, my father
brought home a Ford Mustang
Shelby GT350 that he was driving
as a demonstrator. He drove my
brother and me around in-it a few
times, and, we both immediately
fell in love with the machine.
The thing was a work.of art! He
wouldn't let me drive it, of course.
It was new, was fairly costly. and


ready for that much
power. What??
One night, my parents
were out in the family
sedan, and the allure of
that beautiful machine got
to be more than I could
endure. I took my brother,
-who is one-year younger
HOT than myself and extremely
handicapped with cerebral
Chip' palsy, and strapped him
Jr. into the passenger seat of
- the beast, and got behind
the wheel. I just wanted to
drive it around the block a
few times. What would be the
harm in that, right? Wrong!
Things started off well enough.,
I had driven the family's '62
Fairlane several times with no
problem. I had never driven a stick
shift before, but was well accus-
tomed to the three-speed shaft
shift, so I was able to get it off the
curb and head down the road.
My brother was so excited that
he had trouble sitting up straight. I
was all teeth myself; grinning
widely and gripping, the steering
wheel tightly. I was in heaven. I
made the planned right hand turn,
then another. I should have made
that last turn to head back to the
house. Instead I went straight.
As I left .the neighborhood, I
was accelerating; the rumble of
the engine so incredibly satisfying
that I had to go even faster. The
extra speed came easily to the car,
but maybe less easily to me.'I
came to a left-hand turn, which I
took with a squeal of rubber, Onto
a road that ran perpendicular to
Broad Street, the main thorough-
fare in Richmond at the time. As I
made the turn, I looked over at
Mike, my brother, and he was


pushing his foot as hard as he
could against the floor. I knew
what he wanted, and so I com-
plied.
Now, I admit I wanted to press
that gas pedal as much as he want-
ed me to, but I still say I wouldn't
have done it had he not encour-
aged me. That's my story, and I'm
sticking to it.
The car leaped, throwing us
both hard against the seat, and we
flew down the road. It was incred-
ible! I tried to brake and slow
down as I crossed Broad Street
under a green light. Instead, I lit-
erally jumped the road, and bot-
tomed out as I touched down on'
the other side. I kept control of
the vehicle, which I still feel spoke
volumes about my driving ability.
Unfortunately, the Henrico
County policeman that was parked
at Bill's Barbecue, a favorite area
hangout, did not agree with me. -
Needless to say, I was stopped a
few blocks past the scene of my
stunt. I think I could hate bluffed
my way through it if my brother
had not ratted me out. He kept'
yelling, "14, 14, 14."
Although he was hardto under- '
stand, the officer got the gist of the,
message and I ended up throwing
myself on the mercy of the court. I
was 14 years old, with no license,
no permission to drive the car, and
initially charged with reckless
driving. To make matter worse,
my dad had the registration with
him.
I actually got off pretty easy, I
guess. I was not allowed to apply
for a driver's license until my 17th
birthday, which seemed like cruel
and inhumane treatment to me at
the time.
Although I loved the cars, I,


intentionally steered away from
Mustangs until I was into my early
40s, when I bought a used red
1984 Mustang GL 5.0, with white
convertible top. It only had 50,000
miles on the engine and seemed in
perfect shape. It burned to the
ground the next day, 16 hours after
I bought it. It was not covered for
fire. I figured I still had a little
time left on my sentence.
A few years later, I bought a
used 1991 Ford Mustang GT 5.0
convertible, burgundy with a
black top. That was a great car. I
drove it everywhere and never got
one speeding ticket. Obviously,
my debt to society had been satis-
fied.
I now drive a 1995 Ford
Mustang GT 5.0 convertible,
greenwith a tan top. That was the
last year they made the 5.0,
switching to the 4.6-liter' in 1996.
I love the car, which at this time
has more than 120.000 miles on it.
I figured it was all I would ever
need.
Now, we have the new Shelby
coming out and I'm feeling that-
same old draw. Trust me when I
tell you .that I am fighting. the
impulse with all of my. strength.
Oh, and for the record. I am a
very, very safe driver now, regard-
less of what my Wife, children.
extended family, friends and
employees say. I know how to
handle myself in an appropriate
manner.
I would just like to drive it
around the block a few times.

Highlands has a big heart
Editor:
I want to thank all the customers of Gates Petroleum
in Sebring and Lake Placid who participated in the annu-
al Big Brothers/Big Sisters Heart sale earlier this year.
Thanks to the hard work of the two managers and their
employees a total of $4,590 was raised to support our
mentoring services.
And what does this support? This past school year,
Florida Ridge Big Brothers and Big Sisters provided
one-to-one mentoring support to 21 children in our com-
munity-based program. Another 74 children received
academic support through our Bigs in Schools program.
In this program, Bigs meet with their Little at school dur-
ing the day. We are proud to report that 96 percent of stu-
dents matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister improved
or maintained their academic standing through the
school year.
We need more Bigs! There are currently more than 30
children waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister in our
community-based program. Another 30 children were
unable to receive academic support last year because we
did not have enough Bigs to meet with them. Anyone
looking to put a little fun into your life and the life of a,
child, should call us at 402-9001.
Thank you so much, all of you Gates' customers and
employees, for helping bring a little magic into a child's
life.
Gary Araujo

Brothers and Big Sisters.

Pastor Ron Norton, First Christian Church of Sebring, presents a $10,000 check to Jamie M. Steed (cen-

money will be used to assist in repairing the homes damaged in the 2004 hurricanes.

SEBRING Highlands
Emergency Recovery Opera-
tion Inc. was established in
2004 to address the long-term,
unmet needs of individuals liv-
ing within Highlands County
who do not possess the ade-
quate resources to make a full
recovery from the catastrophes
of 2004 and 2005.
To date, HERO has assisted
more than 350 clients by pro-


viding them with aid in the

canker compensation


Special to the News-Sun
LAKELAND U.S.
Secretary of Agriculture Mike
Johanns reaffirmed his recogni-
tion of the importance of the
Florida citrus industry to the


state's economy by announcing
the availability of $100 million
to compensate Florida citrus
growers and commercial citrus
nursery growers for losses
incurred as a result of the citrus
canker eradication program.
The announcement that
funds will be immediately
available to compensate citrus
nurse) growers will set the
stage for a vital-citrus nursery
industry to begin to reestablish
its ability to provide replace-
ment trees to citrus growers.
The nursery industry has lost
more than 60 percent of its
stock to the eradication pro-
gram, severely hampering
growers' ability to keep produc-
tion at an economically viable
level.
These funds will also allow
the industry to continue to
recover from the acreage losses
incurred during the attempt to
eradicate citrus canker, and will
be a business-saving event for'
some growers. The announce-
ment will cover a significant
portion of those remaining
growers awaiting compensation
for trees destroyed prior to the
decision on Jan. 10 to abandon
the eradication program.-
"This announcement further
illustrates Secretary Johanns'
commitment to supporting the
Florida -citrus industry, our
growers and nurserymen," said
Jay Clark, Florida Citrus
Mutual's interim executive vice
president/chief executive offi-
cer. "We are extremely grateful
to have the Secretary and the,
Administration behind us as we
continue to rebound from the
effects of citrus canker and the
eradication program."
Florida Citrus Mutual,
founded in 1948, is the state's
largest citrus grower .organiza-,

bers. The Florida citrus indus-

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Laundry can

be refreshing
My mom gave me the
gift of a soft teddy bear
holding a small tin can
filled with a candle. The
scent is called "Clean
Cotton." The picture shows
a white picket fence with a
clothes line and a basket of
laundry. Embroidered on
the bottom of one of the
bear's paws is a clothes line
with some laundry. The
other paw is embroidered
with a candle.
Simply leaving the can
open fills the room with the
smell of clean cotton that
has just come in from the
sun's warm rays.
Though the days of hang-
ing clothes out to dry on a
line are all but gone, this
scent reminds me of how I
enjoyed this "old fash-
ioned" method of drying
clothes.. Yes, I said,
enjoyed.
There was a sense of
accomplishment when I
pulled the clothes out of the
washer and hung them on
the clothes line. The creak-
ing pulley played its music
as it brought more line to
me when I pushed the rope
along with the clothes.
The breeze joined in the
song snapping the clothes
to attention and then waft-
ing :them along on its
breath.
But, I think the reason I
enjoyed this activity so
much was because of how'
the clothes smelled when I
reversed the action and
brought them in. I'd bury
m) face in the freshness of
the now sun-dried clothing
and inhale.
The refreshing scent
reminded me of ho\\
dependable God is. The sun
thai shines warming the
earth and brightening our
da.s: the breezes that blo\\
for our m\ Igoration, the
rain that falls and waters ill
I ing things; the scent of
his goodness refreshing my
senses.
Whether it is the scent in
the air after a rain or the
scent of newly dried
clothes, I am refreshed.
When I'm refreshed, it's
like being renewed. Like
the once bedraggled, wrin-
kled, w et piece of laundry,
I'm "fluffed up" and ready
for use again.
The Christian life may
have times when fog
descends and blinds us; or
storms whip up and threat-
en to uproot us. But, if we
keep pressing on, the sun
will shine again and the sea
will calm. And we will be
renewed.
In Romans 6:4 we are
told, "We also should walk
in newness of life." Then in
Romans 7: 6 it says, '"That
we should serve in newness
of spirit."
r recently learned that the
word "newness" can be
described as "freshness."
Kind of like those clothes
hanging on the line, we
allow the Son of God to dry
our tears, warm our lives
and breathe new life into
us. With his breath sustain-
ing'us, wp can walk in his
freshness like an everlasting
springtime filling the air
with hea enl fragrance.
Selah.

Where did


chocolate


originate?

News-Sun
A favorite flavor .of most
Americans, chocolate has
unique origins.
It began in the tropical rain-
forests of Central and South
American where cacao first
grew. Chocolate is made from
the seeds of the cacao tree, and
its journe\ from seed to sweet
is a long one, spanning many
centuries.
To the Aztecs and May'ans,
chocolate represented power,.
religion and romance. It was
expensive and a luxury. In fact
the cacao beans were .used as a
monetary unit. Theobrom
Cacao means "food of the
gods," and cacoa is the Mayan
word meaning "God food." It's
documented that the Aztec
ruler Montezuma II drank an
extra cup of chocolate before
consorting with his favorite
ladies. During that time choco-
late was not only drunk for
pleasure and perceived to,be .
health and nourishing, but it
% as even thought of as an
aphrodisiac. Perhaps that's
N\ hy chocolate is associated
with Valentine's Day.
In the 1600s chocolate was
introduced to Europe, where it
became popular as candy,
rather than merely a drink.
Later, in America, mass pro-
duction made it even more
popular and today it's a key
ingredient in many foods.
Sure, acne and tooth decay
have given it a bad reputation,
but there are 300 chemicals in
chocolate. Two in particular
are phenylethylamin and sero-
tonin which serve as mood
lifters. After eating chocolate,
there are detectable changes: A
rise in blood pressure, an
increase in heart rate ... and a
feeling of well being and
euphoria-... and of being in
love.


Sunita Halliday with the fin-
ished ballet slippers and a buck-
et of appealing chocolates for
ballerinas.

Carl Linnaeus, the
botanist who gave
chocolate its sci-
entific name, stat-
ed that the drink
markedly
improved three
medical condi-
tions: Wasting or
thinness brought
on by disease;
hemorrhoids; and
hypochondria


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING -.A gift of gourmet choco-
lates was enough to whet Sunita Hallida 's
appetite. '
She thoroughly dipped herself into the
knowledge of chocolate, recipes and spe-
cialty molds and applied her artistic talent
,to create her sweet treats.
While living in Homestead, her choco-
late sea horses, dolphins, manatees,
starfish, sand dollars, mermaids, whales,
fish, sea shells always sold well in Key
West. The caramel turtles, nut clusters,
peanut brittle or her coffee, mango,
pineapple, cappuccino and Amaretto-filled
'truffles are favorites in her gift baskets.
"Even my daughters, Kirstin, age 6, and
Stephanie, age 10, love being involved.
They want to learn and I give them direc-
tion. Stephanie entered her banana bread
and some gourmet chocolates at the
Caladium Festival and won several awards
last year. I'm very proud of her," Halliday
said.
Although Sunita's chocolate has a shelf
life of six months, she insists on making
her gourm-et chocolates no more than three
da.s beforehand so they are fresh for vari-
ous events such as birthdays, weddings,
annimersaries and holidays. She has done
chocolates for the News-Sun's Women's
Eposium, Valentine's Day, Easter baskets,
Kenilworth's Romancing the Chocolate
Show, and various women's clubs. She
provides gift baskets for Home Care
Solutions' clients and doctors.
On the big day of ballet recitals, there
are lots special choices made to order such
as roses, daisies, tulips and lilies in a pail;
musical notes, ballet slippers, chocolol-
lipop ballet dancers (on a stick.) She even
made a 3-D chocolate house complete
v. ith palm trees and a fence for Art on the
Water. ...
Recently she joined the Sebring
Chamber of Commerce and is looking for-
ward to creating special requests for fel-
low members. Chocolates are great as a
thank-you gift or a romantic enticement
and come in milk, white, dark and sugar-
free chocolate.
"What an indulgent hedonistic treat of
taste, aroma and texture. I'm looking for-
ward to Father's Day and of course will be
painting patriotic chocolate flags with red,
white and blue for the Fourth," Halliday


Sunita Halliday and her daughter Stephanie paint the finishing touches on an assortment of
chocolates heart-shaped, ribbon boxes, etc.


said while working at her home.
Halliday's great grandparents were from
India. She was born in Trinidad and
moved with her family to New York for
one year until they decided it was too cold.
That brought them to Fort.Lauderdale,
where she later met her husband. He was
born in New Jersey, raised in the
Bahamas, and then lived in Trinidad. He
had just sold his property and was visiting


Fort Lauderdale where they were intro-
duced and met 16 years ago.
"Isn't that romantic? The only thing that
would have made it more so would have
been if we'd met in a chocolate shop,"
Halliday said.
To order some handmade gourmet
chocolates for any special occasion, call
Halliday at 655-6616 or her cell at 243-
3198.

ARTS & LEISURE




Life and death occurs on wicked stage


By ROY RIEDY
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Friday
evening, June 2, Highlands
Little Theatre began its three
week run of its 146th produc-
tion, Billy Van Zandt and Jane
Milmore's travesty, "Drop
Dead," a mystery comedy.
The play within a play chron-
icles the adventures of a psy-
chotic director, Victor LePewe
"wonder child of the Broadway
stage" (Art Harriman) and a
felonious producer, Sol
Weisenheimer (Mac Byron), as
they attempt to work with a cast
of erratic actors that includes a
difficult television diva, Mona
Monet (Kristin Taylor), and a
linguistically challenged lead-
ing man, Brent Reynolds (Ken
Hall).
The dramatic personae of this
vehicle also includes an enkin-
dled first-time actor, Chaz


Looney (Chris Moore), a beau-
tiful, but bedimmed blond,
Candy Apples (Ginny
Feathers), and a deteriorating
and deaf actress, Constance

It's been a joke in my family
for years that I was born lacking

to give me directions to get

road ... I'm lost unless you say
"left" or "right." It's pitiful, but
there is hope. More than 600
titles in our Heartland Library
Cooperative deal with maps and
diagrams on every conceivable
subject, from travel to coral
reefs to cultures. If you have an
interest in rock collecting, sev-

about borrowing Okeechobee's
"Field Book of American Trees

Eastern diamondback rattlesnake dangerous


The eastern diamondback
rattlesnake is recognized by its
distinctive diamond pattern
with yellow borders. It has an
arrow-shaped head which is
much larger than its neck, and a
set of rattles at the end of its
tail. Rattlesnakes are pit vipers.
They have a pit between the eye
and nostril that detects heat and
allows the snake to sense prey
at night and an elliptical eye
pupil.
The diamondback is the
largest and potentially most
dangerous of the North
American snakes. They can
grow in excess of eight feet in
length, though six feet and less
is more common. Their average
weight is four to five pounds.
The diamondback ranges


from southeastern North
Carolina to eastern Texas and
south. It has been reported in
every county and many of the
islands in Florida.
Diamondbacks are an upland
snake frequently living in hol-
low logs, underneath palmetto
roots, or in gopher tortoise or
armadillo burrows. They will
occasionally forage in swamps
and marshes when water levels
are low. Diamondbacks are
excellent swimmers and are
known to swim between
islands. Rattlesnakes typically
feed on warm-blooded animals,
mainly rabbits, squirrels, rats,
mice and birds. They are an
ambush predator, waiting in a
coil for suitable prey to come
within striking distance. They


have been known to 1
wait motionless for a
week before taking a
victim.
Eastern diamond- A
backs have several
adaptive features.
The first is the nee-
dle-like fangs and the
poison sacs. The NEW
fangs normally lie
back until they open T
their mouth, which
causes the fangs to WATI
self erect. When they -
bite a victim the pres- Jennif
sure from the victim
on the upper surface
of the snake's mouth pushes the
venom from the sacs into the
fangs, this injecting the victim.
The venom is a complex of pro-


S
TH
ER
er


teins, some neurotox-
ins and some hemo-
toxins.
A second feature is
the rattle. The rattle
is a series of inter-
locking segments
that knock against
- each other when the
FROM tail is vibrated. The
rattle increases by
E one each time the
skin is shed.
SHED Rattlesnakes will
- shed one to five
Abbey times each year
- depending on their
diet. Rattles also
break and/or rub off with wear.
Consequently, they cannot be
used to age a snake.
The diamondback generally
sounds a warning rattle when
disturbed. They do not have to
be coiled to strike and can strike
in any direction from any posi-
tion, with and effective striking
distance of a third to more than
half of their body length.


. Eastern diamondbacks give
birth to nine to 15 live young
between July and October.
August is the most common
month for diamondbacks to
have young in Florida. They
young are 12-15 inches long
and fully capable of hunting on
their own. Females may not
breed every year. Rattlesnakes
may live to the age of 20.
Eastern diamondbacks have
large home ranges. Male home
ranges are known to encompass
as much as 500 acres. Females
have smaller home ranges.
During winter, rattlesnake
movements decrease. In the
northern part of their range,
they may stay in a burrow, often
grouping together for warmth.
But in the southern part of their
range, they will still remain on
the surface at least half of the
time.
Many herpetologists believe
the diamondback rattlesnake's
population numbers are declin-


ing due to a combination of
habitat loss, habitat fragmenta-
tion and both indiscriminate
and discriminate killings; some
snakes are taken for their skin
and/ or meat. Others are taken
because of the perceived threat
to the public. The real threat to
public safety is low. Annually,
an estimated 7,000 to 8,000
people get bit by venomous
snakes in the United States.
Most people get bitten because
they are trying to kill the snake
or get a closer look. The best
thing to do if you see a snake,
poisonous or not, is walk
around it giving a little berth,
six feet is plenty, and leave it
alone.

Since hurricane season is now here,
some of us may have hurricane dam-
age to our landscape plants. I would
like to share some information for the
care of these plants. Hurricane dam-
aged plants should be cared for as soon
as possible. Small trees and shrubs,
particularly those uprooted or dam-
aged, should be securely staked in
their original growing positions. Until
the tree or shrub is reset, every effort
must be made to protect the exposed
root system and prevent it from drying
out. Soil, moist burlap sack or moist
sphagnum moss can be put on exposed
roots. Damaged roots should be
removed so the tree can be reset at
ground level.

Once reset, trees should be held in position
with stakes or guy wires. Trees with trunk diam-
eters less than two inches can usually be
anchored by two or three 48-inch, 2-inch-by-2-
inch wood stakes. The stakes should be placed
about a foot outside the root ball and inserted 18
inches into the soil. Secure the stake to the trunk
with ties made from wide, smooth material or
hose-covered twine. Trees two inches or larger in
diameter should be guyed with three or four
cables. Guys are secured to deeply driven short

Soil should be filled around the roots

Master Despite the fact that many trees and

S ricane, they may have been tossed back

around the major support roots. Where this has
occurred, add soil and water in it to eliminate air
pockets around the roots.
Broken branches should be sawed or pruned
from the tree or shrubs. Always make clean, even
cuts and remove only those' that are damaged.
Where possible cut branches back to major limbs
or the main trunk, cutting just outside of the
branch collar.

Alzheimer's caregivers often need help to cope


Special to the News-Sun
They are the forgotten vic-
tims of Alzheimer's disease and
other memory disorder illness-
es: the family caregivers who
toil each day caring for loved
ones who are no longer able to
care for themselves.
For them, stress is a constant.
It can even be a killer, accord-
ing to studies that have shown a
link between caregiving and
premature death, particularly
for spouses.
When these caregivers even-
tually burn out, emotionally or
physically, the lives of those
they are caring for often follow
suit. While most outreach
efforts target the sufferers of
Alzheimer's and dementia, a
local company Home
Instead Senior Care and a
national non-profit. advocacy
group are teaming up to help
their forgotten caregivers.
The unique collaboration
between Home Instead Senior
Care and the Leeza Gibbons
Memory Foundation has led to
the creation of www.caregiver-


stress.cornm and an online stress
tool that can help family care-
givers gauge their level of stress
and get help from a variety of
resources, many of which are
listed on the site.
"The caregivers are a huge
component in the lives of
Alzheimer's and dementia
patients," said James Huysman,
Psy.D., executive director and
co-founder of The Leeza
Gibbons Memory Foundation.
"If the caregiver, for instance.
starts drinking or medicating to
cope, or becomes ill or
depressed, the whole system
breaks down and everyone
involved suffers. That's why we
are gearing our efforts at The
Leeza Gibbons Memory
Foundation toward behavioral
research so we can answer the
question: If you educate,
empower and energize a care-
giver, how much does that
enhance or enrich the quality of
life for their loved one?"
That question, as well as oth-
ers, will have far-reaching
effects on an increasing number

have revealed that stress is a
problem that can affect the
health as well as the mortality

assistance is not provided.
For example, in a poll

more than 5,300 of Home

family members who care for a

percent of these family mem-
bers had significant to above
average stress levels at the point
they sought assistance.
A 2003 "New England

whom they were caring.
An earlier study ("Journal of
the American Medical
Association," Dec. 19, 1999)
also co-authored by Schulz,
who is director of gerontology
at the University of Pittsburgh,
revealed that family caregivers
caring for an ailing spouse were
63 percent more likely to die
sooner than those who were not
caregivers.

resources," said Judy Laws,
owner of the Home Instead
Senior Care office serving
Highlands and Polk counties.
"That's why Home Instead
Senior Care is partnering with
The Leeza Gibbons Memory
Foundation, not 'only to help
those with memory disorders,
but their family caregivers as
well. One common mission for
both of our organizations is to
provide a respite to weary care-
givers struggling to keep their
loved ones at home," Laws
said.
Home Instead caregivers go
into the homes and facilities of
seniors, often lifting the burden


and providing regular relief for
weary family caregivers.
Caregivers help with non-med-
ical activities of daily living,
such as companionship, meal
preparation, light housekeep-
ing, medication reminders,
transportation, errands and
shopping.
Gibbons' partnership with
Home Instead Senior Care, the
world's largest provider of at-
home non-medical care for
older adults, includes an educa-
tional campaign that features
the new, informational online
stress assessment tool available
to family caregivers at
www. caregiverstress.com.
According to Schulz, who
was instrumental in developing
the stress assessment tool, care-
givers who don't take care of
themselves can't care for oth-
ers. "This means eating right,
getting adequate rest, building
exercise into your schedule,
keeping up % ith s our own med-
ical appointments and reaching
out when you need help."
Signs of caregiver stress can
be both physical and emotional
and include disturbed sleep,
headaches, weight fluctuation,,
fatigue, anxiety and mood
swings. To gauge their level of
stress, family caregivers should
log on to the Web site to 'com-
plete the 20-question survey.


Developed by the Home Instead
Senior Care advisory board a
group of leading eldercare and
caregiver stress experts the
online stress assessment tool
also can help determine what
support caregivers may need for
themselves, including advice,
tips and resources. To take the
caregiver stress assessment test,
visit the site.

Is stress to much
Family members who take
care of loved ones with memo-
ry disorders need to take care of
themselves. And the first step
toward good health is recogniz-
ing your stress level. If you're a
family caregiver responsible for
the care of a senior with
Alzheimer's disease or some
form of dementia, take the
informational stress test at the
Web site to gauge how this
stress is impacting your health.
Here are four sample questions:
Upon completion of the sur-
vey, you'll receive a free stress
assessment, as well as tips,
advice and links to resources.

Instead Senior Care, go :to

more details about Alzheimer's
disease and other dementia dis-
orders, contact a local
Alzheimer's Association or go

Hairdresser and owner of The Hair Stall, Barbara Thompson, lets Shelby Hood, 4, of Avon Park, hold
the freshly cut pony tail of hair she so lovingly offered to donate to Locks for Love. Hood, who has never
had short hair, decided to have gi% e her, long hair to.children who have cancer.


Tears of pride flow when


4-year-old gets hair cut


FATHER'S DAY SPECIAL







Dai i
.,. , : : ," ,' ,. : . -' .f, ;


By SUNNY ZENGLER
News-Sun
AVON PARK Shelby Hood was all busi-
ness when she stepped into Barbara Thompson's
Hair Stall Thursday morning. Her hair was get-
ting shorn.
Her mother Ana Hood and grandmother Sue
Woodruff were not so calm about the upcoming
proceedings. Shelby, 4, has. been coming to
Thompson's salon all her short life for simple
trims, but this was the first time for a major hair-
cut. Her hair was pulled into a ponytail and at
least one-half of her long hair was clipped off. It
took less than two minutes to climb onto the
booster seat and have short hair.
"I can't believe all it took. was one snip,
Momma," Shelby said.
She was the only one not crying, including
Thompson, her stylist.
"Last Friday was her first dance recital at Step
by Step Dance Studio, and she had to wear her
hair in a bun." Woodruff said.


Between swimming and. the hot summer
weather, long hair became a burden. The previous
time Shelby visited the Hair Stall, she declared
she wanted her hair short, "like Daddy's." Ana
and Thompson scrambled to dissuade her. It turns
out that John Hood, Woodruff's son and Shelby's
father, loves long hair.
Thompson told Shelby that she would have to
get a written permission slip from her father first.
A program on the "Today Show," Locks of
Love's Web site (locksoflove.org) and articles in
the News-Sun were the impetus for the brunette's
generosity. About 80 percent of hair donations to
this Lake Worth non-profit organization are from
children. The hair is fashioned into wigs and
hairpieces for financially challenged children
with long-term medically-induced hair loss. It
takes six to 10 hair donations to make one hair-
piece. according to the \Web site.

History Lesson.
5 Years Ago
June 10, 2001: Third-
seeded Sebring Publix
overcame the heat and a
determined Lake Placid
Firestone squad to take a
15-13 win in eight innings
in the Dixie Boys county
tourney at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
Seventh-seeded Firestone
overcame a pair of four-run
deficits during the game,
but Publix pushed across
two runs in the top of the
eighth, and Dusty Campbell
sent the side down in order
in the bottom of the inning
to wrap up the win.

10 Years Ago
June.9, 1996: Buoyed by
the sparkling golf know-
how of a player off the pro-
fessional mini tour, a team
from Lake Placid fired a
brilliant 15-under 56 to win
the inaugural Jim
Blackman Ford Summer
Shootout at the Country
Club of Sebring. Lance
Wilton keyed the team of
Tripp Waters, Steve Davis
and Darren Sapp to victory
in the tournament staged
by the Lake Placid Jaycees
in a four-man scramble
format with 72 players in
the field.

Nelson closes strong for 3-under 69


Defending champion

Lamb three shots back
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Patrick Lamb will
have to play catch-up if he wants to be the
first player to defend the Bagwell Junior
Golf Tournament title since Ryuji Imada
won his third in a row in 1994.
Lamb, who is from Lake Wales and is in
the 17-18 age division, had five birdies
and five bogeys in an even-par round of
34-38-72 to open his quest for a second
straight title, but that was only good for
second place overall behind 15-16 age
group leader Derek Nelson of Palm Beach
Gardens, who shot a 2-under 33 on the
front nine and finished with an eagle on


the par-5 final hole for a 3-under 69.
The long-driving Nelson open ed with
seven straight pars before closing the front
nine with consecutive birdies, then
bogeyed the par-3 12th before a birdie on
the difficult 13th hole got him back to 2-
under. A bogey on the tough par-3 17th
had him 1-under heading into the final
hole, where the eagle put him'firmly on
top of the leaderboard.
In addition to his three-shot lead over
Lamb for overall honors, Nelson enjoys a
five-shot lead in the 15-16 division. Austin
Smith of Avon Park closed with three
straight birdies after a double bogey on
No. 15 to card a 74 and is tied with Rick
Briggs of Zephyrhills. Nick Thomas of
Bartow is in fourth with 76.
Lee White of Bartow is a shot behind
Lamb in the 17-18 group, with Phillip


Brooks of Avon Park in third at 79.
Sebring g Rock) Khiua leads the 12-14
di vision with a ,75, but was far from
pleased with his round after failing to fin-
ish strong despite shooting 1-under on the
front nine,
"I was 2-under on the 15th hole and
went bogey boge., double (bogey) and,
that.dropped me down to 75," he. said. "I
should have been at 70 or 71. I got a little
too aggressive on 15, on 16 I had a bad
bounce and 17 was just a bad hole for
mie."
Khara is one shot ahead of Bartow's
Drew Guffey and four in front of
Sebring's Blake Liles.

girls leader after shooting 34-41-75 for a

Miracle motivated for


24 Hours of Le Mans


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
The Miracle Motorsports team is hoping for better luck at next
weekend's 24 Hours of Le Mans than it had at Sebring in March
and at Le Mans last year.


Special to the News-Sun I
BRASELTON, Ga. As
Miracle Motorsports driver
Ian James described it, the 24
Hours of Le Mans "is a long
time."
He's just hopeful that this
year he'll get to experience
that duration in its entirety.
Last year, James was part


of the Winter Haven-based
Miracle Motorsports team
that made its inaugural
appearance at the famous 24
Hours of Le Mans June 17-
18. However, like with most
rookie experiences, the team's
showing involved a huge
learning curve.

Randall fans 11 in



complete-game gem


By SHAWN HINSKEY
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Pitching a complete-
game shutout is a great accomplishment
and doing it while racking up 11 strike-
outs against only four hits and four
walks is astonishing.
Alan Jay's Matt Randall did just that
Friday night against Heiring
Construction. Randall was on the mark
and never got off track leading Alan Jay
to a 5-0 victory.
Heiring's Dylan Heiring pitched a
solid first inning, shutting down the bats
of Alan Jay in a 1-2-3 top half of the
inning. But a slight slip .up on a wild
pitch in the second inning would allow
the first run of the game to score for
Alan Jay after a line drive hit to first by
Dylan Sanders was mishandled by the
first baseman.
Randall would then strike out the side
to take things to, the third with a slim 1-
0 lead.
After a walk and a single to get two
men on, Alan Jay's Michael Smrith
would hit a liner that would score a run.
Smith would score himself later in the
inning off of a Heiring wild pitch.
Both teams were contributing to mak-


ing the game a quick one, and it showed
in the fourth with both teams sending
three batters up, and all three of them
coming right back to the bench, with
Randall striking out the side for the sec-
ond time in the game.
Alan Jay would add the last two of its
five runs in the fifth. A single followed
up by a great double by Jesse Ouverson
would put the runners in scoring posi-
tion. Brad Torres would be the player to
take advantage, hitting a solid RBI sin-
gle. Three batters later, Alan Jay would
add another by getting a walk to score
the final run.
From the bottom of the fifth on it was
all pitching with no bats. Neither team
would be able to add any runs to their
total in the final two and a half innings
of play.
,Randall, however, would add his final
three strikeouts of the game with one in
each of the final three innings. The last
out of the game was one that had
Heiring almost scoring on a play at the
plate where Avierre Conner was called
out on a great throw from right field.
The win moves Alan Jay to 8-6 on the
season while Heiring Construction falls
to 4-11.

Coyotes have

It just seems a little strange
to be talking about coyotes in -

had told me'there w'ere coyotes
in Florida. I nodild hae
chalked it up to his having
failed geograph\, in the sixth

I thought it was the longest-
legged gray fox I had ever

seen a coyote loping rioncha-
lantl\ out of siLht in my rear-
view mirror.
According to a Florida
game \arden. these cousins of
our family\ dog are becoming a
very common sight in our
area. The warden, who was
trying to apprehend an injured
deer in my backyard, said that
a lady in the neighborhood had
lost a few of her pet cats to
coyotes.
(That brings up another
problem. That neighbor
shouldn't let her house cats
run loose. Domestic cats along
with feral cats kill far too
many song birds and other
small wildlife).
It seems the coyote till

MIRACLE
Continued from 1D
After qualifying 18th,
Miracle ironed out some minor
issues early in the race and was
running well until a major
mishap occurred. In the ninth
hour, the car left pit row with-
out a wheel being fully tight-
ened. As a result, the car soon
lost a tire while out on the
course and subsequently was
forced to retire.
"Our first invitation was
very hectic," confessed, team
owner and driver John
Macaluso. "To rush around and
not have your car ready for a
race as prestigious as that is
very frustrating.
"That's why we're so deter-
mined to do well there this
year."
Miracle returns to the 2006
event with the same driver
team that it had a year ago. The
trio of Macaluso, James and
Andy Lally are slated to drive,
while James Gue will be pre-
qualified as a backup driver.
"We are looking forward to
this race," said Macaluso. "It'll
be a good opportunity for us to
return and atone ourselves for
last year."
"The second time there you
can do so much with regard to
thought and preparation,"
added James. "It's an added
benefit having had that experi-
ence before, and I.think the car
is better prepared this time
around."
Although the LMP2 field is
deep, it doesn't include a pre-
dominant favorite a fact that
has the Miracle Motorsports
team eagerly anticipating its
second trip to Le Mans' Circuit
de la Sarthe.
"We have a good chance of
winning,"' James said. "If we
can get to the finish, I'm sure
we'll be in the top of the order."
The team suffered a gearbox
disaster at Sebring, finishing
dead last after completing just
52 laps.
Race on SPEED
Sports car enthusiasts the
world over will be able to see
more television coverage of the
24 Hours of Le Mans than ever

famous endurance race. runs for
the 74th time June 17-18 from
La Sarthe in the south of
France.
The green flag flies at'5 p.m.
local time (11:00 a.m. EDT) on
Saturday June 17 with the
checkered flag exactly one full
day later.
This year's worldwide audi-
ence will watch Danish-born
Tom Kristensen vie for an
unprecedented eighth Le Mans
,championship and his seventh
-consecutive. Last year,
Kristensen, JJ Lehto and Marco
Werner piloted the ADT
Champion Racing Audi R8 to a
two-lap victory.
SPEED, home to five
American Le Mans Series races
in 2006, will offer 20 hours of
live coverage from Le Mans.
SPEED's presentation begins at
10:30 a.m. on Saturday and
continues to 3 p.m. Coverage
resumes from 8 p.m. and con-
tinues beyond the end of the
race to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Bob Varsha, Leigh Diffey
and Greg Creamer will handle
the call of the race. Dorsey
Schroeder and David Hobbs
provide expert analysis and
booth commentary. Calvin
Fish, Brian Till, Andrew
Marriott and Chris Neville
report from the pit lane.
SSPEED reaches a total of 65
million United States house-
holds.
A total of 26 cameras will be
used to televise the race. In
addition, five cars will be fitted
with a pair of on-board cameras
to further dramatize the specta-
cle that is uniquely Le Mans.
And for the first time in 24
Hours of Le Mans history,, a
balloon, fitted with a close-up
camera will film unusual shots
from an altitude of 50 meters.

The eastern coyotes weigh
from 25 to 45 pounds. Males
are larger than the females and
both are usually grayish-
brown, though sometimes
nearly black with a patch of
white chest hair. Females reach
sexual maturity at 10 months
and breed once yearly. Litters
average six young, which are
usually born in a burrow origi-
nally dug by an armadillo or
gopher tortoise which was-
enlarged by the parents.
Dens are abandoned when
the pups are 8 to 10 weeks old,
though they may use the same
den in following years. The
young ones disperse when
about 9 months old and estab-
lish their own breeding territo-
ries. Some hang around near
their parents a little longer.
Coyotes like watermelons,
so they are likely to get
blamed for some of the dam-
age to melon fields caused by
other critters.
The potential impact on
wildlife, livestock and melon
crops can be cause for concern,
but like it or not, coyotes are
probably'here to stay.

Attempting to control coyote
damage can be very frustrat-
ing. Evidence suggests that
indiscriminate killing may
actually stimulate production
and further increase their num-
bers.
If lethal control becomes
necessary, it should be directed
at specific coyotes or toward
coyotes in a specific area.
Coyotes are able to withstand a
70 percent annual kill, so any
indiscriminate effort is likely
to fail. There is no closed sea-
son on coyotes in Florida,
meaning that they can be shot,
trapped or snared any time by
a person with a legal hunting
license. They are difficult to
trap and shooting can require a
bit of skill.
Recalling the Roadrunner
cartoons, maybe we should call
on that skinny, fast-moving,
long-necked bird to bring his
dynamite and help us get rid of
Wile E. Coyote. The cartoons
were fun but the truth is the
coyote is much smarter than
depicted. He will survive
regardless the methods used to
exterminate him. We can only
hope to control his prolifera-
tion.

management" for her slide.
"I got in the water (on No.
14) and should have taken a
drop, but tried to hit it out of the
water," she said. "I hit it back in
the water again. I was playing
good and got too cocky."
The tournament, which has
been shortened to just two
rounds this year, concludes
with today's final round, which
has an 8 a.m. shotgun start.
