SEBRING Summertime is a busy
time for school administrators. It is
when they do most of the planning and
preparation for the coming school year.
That's why,. when School
Superintendent Wally Cox makes
administrative changes, he does so in
the summer.
Cox tries to shift his assistant princi-
pals on a regular basis. He does this
based o'p his personal experience.
I worked for five different superin-
tendents before becoming one myself,"
he said recently. "When I look back and
reflect on my own career, I see how
working for so many different people
really helped me although I didn't

"Each had a different leadership
style, so I learned something different

better leader.

National Incident Management

System now federally required


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK --The devas-
tation and loss of life, along
with the confusion and chaos
that transpired during and after
the terrorist attacks on Sept.
11, 2001, led President George
W. Bush to request the devel-
opment of a National Incident
Management System.
His request was carried out
by the Secretary of Homeland
Security and released in March
2004.
NIMS, a standardized sys-
tem,, was established to facili-
tate emergency incident needs
efficiently and effectively. It
covers preparedness, training,
response, communications,
organization, and everything in
between.
Captain Preston Colby, con-
tracted emergency manager for
Avon Park, briefed the city
council Monday, explaining
the concept of NIMS, its bene-
fits, who should acquire NIMS


certification, and the impor-
tance of compiling to federal
regulations.
Put simply, the implementa-
tion of NINIS should ensure
that responders. as ,well as
those in management or
authoritative positions with a
direct role in emergency man-
agement and response, are on
the same page This includes
emergency medical services,
hospitals, public health, fire
service, law enforcement, pub-
lic works/utilities, skilled slip-
port personnel, ,and other
emergency management
response, support, and volun-
teer personnel.
Examples of private sector
and non-governmental person-
nel who should receive NIMS
training, according to Colby,
are the America Red Cross,
The Salvation Army, and emer-
gency communications servic-
es.

Questions linger despite lawsuit settlement


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Sun 'N Lake
Improvement District settled a
lawsuit Monday brought
against it by members of its
community.
During a special meeting, the
board of supervisors voted to
adopt the settlement agreement
that brings to an end the Sept.
12, 2005, suit alleging the
January 2005 development
agreement with National
Recreational Properties was
void because it wasn't properly
approved by the board.
Plaintiffs Rex Bond, Bob
Schaeffer, Rusty Carino, Jeri
Canale, and Steve Marabel
allege in the petition for injunc-
tion and other relief that the Sun
'N Lake board of supervisors
violated the state's ethics code.
"Neither (Robert) Severino
nor (Marvin) Fischer made the
required full and public' disclo-
sure of their financial interests,"
the plaintiffs said in the peti-


tion. "By failing to disclose
their interest in the so-called
'50-50 club,' their interests in
Florida International Yachts,
nor their ownership of privately
held interests in agreements for
deed with NRP for land in the
districts"
When the suit was filed with
the 10th Circuit Court in
Highlands County, Schaeffer
was president of the board of
supervisors and Severino and
Fischer. were members of the
board.'
, Severino is now the board's
president and Fischer is the dis-
trict's general manager, a full-
time position.
The lawsuit sought to block
the recall election that resulted
in the shuffled board, claiming
NRP votes were invalid because
it wasn't paying assessments as
do other property owners.
The plaintiffs also alleged
that the district had no authority
to waive lawful assessments, as
was apparently done in Section"


3.05 of the development agree-
ment, which stated, "the district
shall waive and not impose or
charge any operation and main-
tenance fees, charge or assess-
ments" on NRP-owned proper-
ties.
In addition, the development
agreement required the transfer
of 750 lots per year as NRP
improved portions of their units
or 10 years after the sale to
NRP, whichever came first.
But, with a lawsuit pending
against the district, National
Recreational Properties said it
would be unable to secure the
bonds necessary to fund devel-
opment, NRP's Greg Spiro said
at Monday's meeting, which
attracted 60-70 members of the
Community.
Though NRP wasn't a party
to the suit, it had a vested inter-
est in the outcome, Spiro said in
explaining why it agreed to
amend its Jan. 27, 2005, land
sale and development agree-
ment.

the clients at Visions, ADT Inc
began reading the. newspaper,
as part of their daytime, pro-
gram.
Learning about American,
troops in harm's, way, they
wanted to make a difference.
Visions Director Barbara
Cook happened to have a niece,
Sgt. Lori Hunter, stationed in
Ira4., Cook contacted her and in
no time at all the clients were-
nmaking their own cards for the
troops and sending them for
.special occasions, like
Thanksgiving, Christmas,
Easter and Mother's Day.
The clients designed their
cards on computers.
Kevin Butler, the 'computer
trainer, said, "Some can type,
some cannot, but, they 'all con-
trolled the content."
Hunter works in supply. As
time went by, she told Cook


beai able.
That's \%hen the second
phase of the program began.
Thanks to volunteer donations
and Cook's budgeting, once a
month the clients help shop and
pack up a carton of supplies to
send to the soldiers. They send
things like Chapsticks, Wet-
ones, ,tooth paste, deodorants,
and-lots of hard candy and gum:
Those last two items are
extremely popular as they help
in the hot and dry climate.
For close to two years now,
the people at Visions have been
diligent in their humanitarian
effort. No one there, especially
the clients. ever expected any-
thing in return
They were, therefore, caught
by surprise, when an American
flag arrived in Tuesday's mail.
Sent by Hunter on behalf of her
unit, it had been flown in com-
bat at Mosul, on April 9, 2006.

On Flag Day, the special
American flag was hung proud-

prepared 'patriotic decorations
in honor of the flag and the
country. They sang patriotic
songs, like the national anthem,
and "I'm a Yankee 'Doodle

Cook hopes someone might
donate an indoor flag pole to
the program, so the flag can be
properly displayed all the time.

gram coordinator who helped
organize the card and package
campaign, is an adjunct teacher

Board president Robert
Severino, voting to accept the
settlement agreement, said he
opposed "from the beginning"
settling the lawsuit as a "matter
of principle," but he felt that,
overall, it was in the best inter-
est of the district -to put this
matter behind it.
"I think we need to move for-
ward like (supervisor) Charlie
McHale said," Severino said.
The settlement relieved NRP
of previous obligations to con-
tribute up to $375,000 for efflu-
ent water reuse on the district's
two golf courses and to set
aside 40-60 acres for an "educa-
tional facility."
The settlement deleted four
paragraphs pertaining to the
accelerated transfers of 750 lots
per year.
Beginning in November,
NRP-owned land will be sub-
ject to the same operation and
maintenance fees levied by the


district as other property own-
ers.
In addition, NRP's $2 million
contribution to a new clubhouse
was reduced to $1,225,000.
The settlement agreement
does not address claims that
certain members of the board
and/or employees who are
members of a "50-50 club"
and/or Florida International
Yachts apparent real estate
investment groups violated
state ethics codes.
It also prevents the parties
from revisiting, any issues
. brought forward in the lawsuit
or from speaking with the
media regarding the settlement.
James F. McCollum, the
Sebring attorney who represent-
ed the plaintiffs, was compen-
sated $25,000 by NRP, accord-
ing to the settlement.
In settling the lawsuit, none
of the parties conceded its orig-
inal position.

Cool raises bar on triathlon goal OBITUARIES


By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sun
SEBRING They' had
enough people for a quorum
Saturday morning but the only
voting that was done was with
their feet.
A handful of Highlands
County and Sebring officials
got together with other aspiring
athletes for a 7 a.m. ride around
Lake Jackson and a "quick" run
through downtown, both routes.
following the courses laid out
for the Heartland Triathlon, set
for July 16.
"In your mind, you go
through 'No, I can't do that' and
I couldn't," Carl Cool,
Highlands County administra-
tor, said after finishing the 18
miles of cycling and running -
15 and 3.05, respectively.
When Patrick High, a world
class amateur triathlete and
Sebring resident, gave his
trademarked triathlon presenta-
tion during a Noon Rotary Club
meeting a few months ago,
Cool wasn't in shape enough to
seriously consider running the
race.
"It intrigued me," he said,
explaining that the race regis-
tration forms sat on his desk for
a week or two as he slowly con-
vinced himself to try the tri.
Since thkn, Cool. has lost 10
pounds and upgraded from his
."fat tire' mountain bike to an
entry-level Trek road bike with
"skinny" tires.
"I bought this bike because
Dan (Andrews) said it would
make a tremendous difference,"
Cool said, pedaling along
Scenic Highway toward
Manatee Drive with Mark
Andrews, Dan Andrews,
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce executive director;
Dr. Francisco Espaillat, Jeff
Carlson, president, Sebring city
council; Mike Willingham,
Sebring Regional Airport exec-
utive director; and Greg
Stupinski, former Sebring
Airport Authority chairman.
Vicki Pontius, County Parks
and Recreation director, and her
sister-in-law Darlene Zelen-
tano, an avid runner, began with
the men at the Sebring Civic
Center but fell behind on their
less-efficient mountain bikes,.
which are less efficient than
road bikes.
"I wish I'd never gone,"
Pontius said afterward. "I'm
depressed now. I pedaled with
all I had and couldn't keep up
with them guys."
Pontius and Zelentano, like
Cool and about 100 other coun-
ty residents, are first-time
triathletes.
Pontius works out daily and,
since committing to race, has
added training in at least one

leg of the triathlon every day.
"I'm not an overachiever but
I like a challenge," she said,
explaining that cycling turned-
out to be harder than she antici-
pated.
On Friday, Pontius joined
Cool and Willingham at the
Kenilworth Lodge swimming.
pool.
"I was amazed because he
never stopped," Pontius said of
Willingham, a seasoned triath-
lete who's had to back off of his
running due to a knee, injury.
"He went back and forth, back
and forth for 30 to 40 minutes
non-stop."
She added a little insight to
Cool's motivation.
At a recent Parks and
Recreation Advisory
Committee meeting, members
joked about entering. A week
later, she said, fie was regis-
tered.
"Carl is very competitive,"
Pontius said. "He's taking this
very seriously."
Cool's initial goal, like
Pontius', was to just finish the
event.
After Friday's swim, he rode
15 miles and ran about three.
"Now, I want a respectable
finish," Cool said, confirming
that he can complete the race


distance.

far more than the Heartland
Triathlon committee could have
hoped for in its inaugural sprint
race.
"It's really rewarding seeing
the lifestyle changes that are
being made," Andrews said,
noting that many people, Cool
being one, have told him how
much better they feel about
themselves now that they are
exercising.
Even if the only race they
compete, in every year is the
Highlands County triathlon,
Andrews said many have com-
mitted to maintaining some sort
of an exercise schedule.
Through race weekend,

training and use of its three fit-

tered for the triathlon.

McCollum vies for Florida Attorney General


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Bill
McCollum, who represented
Floridians in Congress for 20
years, now wants torepresent
their interests as Florida's
Attorney General.
He visited Highlands CouAty
on Monday, first at' the
Highlands County Homeown-
ers Association meeting, then at
a luncheon at American Service
Title and Escrow Inc. on South
Commerce Avenue, Sebring.
McCollum said the Attorney
General represents state prose-
cutors in criminal appeals in
state and federal courts. He also
appoints a statewide prosecutor
to pursue organized criminal
activity that crosses judicial cir-
cuit boundaries.
Within .the office, the
Victims' Services Division
serves as-an advocate for vic-
tims and victims' rights and
adniinisters a compensation'
'program to provide financial
assistant to innocent victims of
crime.
Consumer protection is a
principal: focus, including
Medicaid fraud arid other forms
of financial exploitation. The
Attorney General enforces the
Florida Deceptive and Unfair
Trade Practices Act and the
Racketeering Influence and
Corrupt Organization Act
(RICO), as well as state and
federal anti-trust laws.
He also investigates com-
plaints of discriminatory behav-
ior and civil rights violations.
Predators
Top of his list of ,concerns is
sexual predators and. Internet
pedophiles people who go to'
online chat rooms and lure chil-

dren to meet them away from
home.
"Everyone tells me there are
not enough resources to deal
with this," McCollum said. "I
will make sure Florida has the.
toughest laws and enforcement
in Florida." ,
Abuse/fraud
Elder abuse or scams are' a
major concern for McCollum,
especially for family. However,
the Florida Attorney General's
office has the responsibility to
go AfCl fratitd
Identity theft is another prob-
leinm, not only when the thief
steals money, but when the thief
sells the idenriut) to an illegal,
immigrant or terrorist,
NlcC-olliinL said. .
The most fraudulently pro-
duced' document is the Social


Security card, he said. He'd like,
to have it as counterfeit proof as
a $100 bill.
. Along those same lines,
McCollum is concerned about
making Floridma safe from ter-
rorism by controlling who is
coming in.
When Congress or the:
Legislature passes an immigra-
tion law, he pledges to do what
he can to strengthen the border.
He'd like to, see U.S.
Customs officials not only
catch falsely documented immi-
grants, but .also inspect all
SeaLand containers, before they'
reach the United States'.
Eminent domain
Recently, the Florida
Legislature passed laws to pre-
vent 'eminent domain from
being used to secure private


land for commercial or residen-
tial development. Someone will
-test that law, McCollum said.
"When they do, I will guar-
antee, under the new law, I will
intervene for the people of
Florida," he said.
Litigation
', Also,,McCollum would like
to have litigation and lawsuit
reform, especially for. such
ihin_', as class-action suits.
One, for example, was
against the Epson because its
desktop printers had. software
that said ink cartridges were
low before they Were out.
McCollum received a letter
in the mail inviting him to be a
party to ,the suit. Though he
might have received a few dol-
lars back, the attorneys, he said,
would haye gotten thousands, if


not millions of dollars.
Background
A native Floridian, Bill
McCollum, 57, was born in
Brooksville and graduated
Hernando High School. He
earned his bachelor's degree
and law -degree from the
University of Florida.
He served active duty in the
U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1972.
In 1992, he retired from the
Naval Reserve as a commander,
having served 23 years as an
officer in the Judge Advocate
General's Corps..
McCollum was first elected
with President Ronald Reagan
in 1980 and represented the
people of Central Florida for 20
years. In 1989, he founded the
House Task Force on Terrorism
and Unconventional Warfare
and served on the Intelligence
Committee.
In the aftermath of the Sept.
11 terrorist attacks, Gov. Jeb
Bush appointed McCollum to
serve on the 11-member Florida
Domestic Security Advisory
Panel.
Today, McCollum serves as
president, and chairman of the


Healthy Florida Foundation,
chartered in 2002 to find con-
sensus on long-term solutions
to the nation's health care sys-
tem.

Highlands County citizens arrested


By AARON MURPHY
Special to the News-Sun '
SEBRING County
Commissioner Andrew Jackson
was escorted away in hand-
cuffs,' but it was for a good
cause.
Jackson was not a hardened
criminal on that day' He and
others were taking part in the
Muscular Dystrophy Associa-
tion's annual "Locked Up For
Good" event, which this year
took place at the Kenilworth


Inn. This year's' event was-
attempIing to raise $25. 1i_0i for
the charity. ,
Some volunteered to be
handcuffed and escorted away
from their places of work in the
police cruiser. An Avon Park
police officer proudly pointed
Out those who volunteered for
thistreatment.
The participants also were
booked and forced to have their
pictures taken ,in black and
white prison garb.


It seemed that.the "inmates"
were having: fun as they were
forced to call friends, confess to
them that they were in jail and
needed their help to get, out.
Each inmate had to'call his or
her friends to raise $5, $10, $20
or $50 donations, in order to
raise money for their bail. The
donl ion limit made it fun,
because it meant nobody could
just call one or two people to
shell out $1,000.

McFarland elected president of Big Brothers Big Sisters


SUSAN FOSTER/News-Sun
Political activist Max Linn (center) talks with Renee and Ronald Plummer of Avon Park at the
Ivory Club meeting Thursday night. Linn, president of Floridians for Term Limits, discussed the
ideas for preventing elected officials from becoming career politicians and the development of a
third more fiscally responsible national, political party. He .was the latest in a series of
informational guests offered by the club, which meets at Homer's Restaurant on the third
Thursday of each month. July's scheduled guest will be Florida House Representative Baxter
Troutman.



Local radio enthusiasts share their

passion for technology, public service


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID On-air
demonstrations,' satellite com-
munications and emergency
preparedness activities 'are on
tap for' members .of 'the
Highlands County Amateur
Radio Club as they gear up to
celebrate Amateur Radio Week
June 19-26.
During Amateur Radio
Week, enthusiasts will put on
demonstrations, give talks to
community groups and take
part in other activities to raise
awareness about Amateur
Radio. The week culminates
with the annual preparedness
exercise called "Field Day,"
June 24-25. Field Day is spon-
sored by the American Radio
Relay League, the national
association for amateur radio.
During Field Day, operators
are set up in local parks, at
s opping malls, or even in their.
own backyards and get on the


air: using generators as battery
power. Field Day was designed
to test operators' abilities to set
up and operate portable stations
under emergency conditions
such as the loss of electricity.
"We want the community to
know that in the event of an
emergency, we will be ready to
assist in any way we :can,"
Darrell Koranda said. "While
people often think that cell
phones or other communica-
tions technologies have
replaced ham radio, we can still
provide an important communi-
cations service that others
can't."
Field Day is a serious test of
skill, but it is also a contest for
fun and the largest "on-air"
operating event each year.
During the weekend, radio
operators try to contact as many
other Field Day stations as pos-
sible. More than 30,000 ama-
teur radio operators across the


/P La.-


county and Canada participated
in last year's event.
The Highlands County
Amateur Radio Club will hold
Field Day at Istokpoga Park on
U.S. 98. Look for the Field Day
sign at entrance. Participants
will be setting up 10 a.m.
Saturday and begin operation at'
1 p.m. until 1 p.m. Sunday, June
25.
"We hope that anyone who is
interested in seeing what
Amateur Radio is all about will
come out for Field Day,"
Koranda said.
Today there are more than
670,000 Amateur Radio opera-
tors in the United States and
more than 2.5 million world-
wide. To find out more 'about
Amateur Radio or how you can
get started, contact Darrell
Koranda at 4-7 -0226.,:
Information also i a.i ailable b

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The board of
directors of Florida Ridge Big
Brothers Big Sisters elected M.
Wayne McFarland of Sebring to
serve as board president at their
2006 annual meeting. This is
the second time McFarland,
owner of Diversified Financial
Services, has been elected to
this office. He has" been a board
ihember since 2000 and also
volunteers as a Big Brother.
Tom Griffin, owner of
Griffin's Carpet Mart, was also
elected board secretary. Norma
Wynn, assistant facility admin-
istrator for Avon Park Youth
Academy, will continue as
treasurer.
In her annual report to the
board outgoing president
Jeanette Stupinski reported that
thanks to the success of
January's SnowFest event,
grants from the Children's
Services Foundation and The
Matred Carlton Oliff
Foundation, the agency was
able to meet its financial goals
for the year.
It also was reported that 96
percent of the 74 students who
participated in the Bigs In
Schools program improved or
maintained their academic
standing through the, school
year.
The biggest factor in pro-
gram growth continues to be the
lack of sufficient numbers 'of


volunteers. While 21 children
in Highlands County were
matched with a Big Brother or
Sister, more than 30 children
are still waiting to be matched.
Florida Ridge Big Brothers
Big Sisters is a United Way of


Central Florida member agency
that provides mentoring support
to children and teens in

Golf resort sponsors tournament to help save baby


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Baby Edwin
Diaz, son of Crystal Acevedo
and grandson of Jimmy and
Diana Acevedo, is still awaiting
the multi-viceral transplant he
needs to live.
Born with a rare disease,
megacystis hypoperistalsis
microcolon, little Edwin's blad-
der doesn't function properly
and his digestion of food is
impaired.
His family is grateful that
finally, after much effort, the-
University of Miami's Jackson
Memorial Hospital agreed to
accept Edwin and perform the
surgery as soon as the organs
come available.
Though the Acevedos do not
know the exact amount they
will need to raise, they know
the cost will enormously exceed

NIMS, when properly imple-
mented, should insure that
operations, procedures, and
communications flow smooth-
ly, regardless of the type or size
of incident, number of agencies
and/or organizations involved,
or area affected.
Colby explained that when
NIMS is implemented; respon-
ders are able to work more
effectively and efficiently while
managing domestic incidents
regardless of size or complexity
- including catastrophic, acts
of' terrorism and natural disas-
ters.,
Failure to comply with
NIMS requirements, Colby
explained, would result in loss
of federal funding and grants
needed.
It took, only the mention of
withholding of funding to gain
a unanimous vote from the
council to comply.
Colby said there are different

SpringLake Golf Resort, of
which Crystal Acevedo and her
grandparents, Bill and Sonia
Patton, have been longtime
employees, is holding a fund-
raiser golf tournament for mem-
bers/spouses, and employees of
the resort..
The cost to enter is $15 per
person and includes lunch and
prizes.
During the tournament, play-
ers will have the opportunity to
advance to'the 150-yard marker
on the 15th hole for a donation
of $5 each increasing, the
odds of an eagle on a par-4
hole.
Participants must sign up for
the tournament by Wednesday,
June 28, in the Legends Bar at
the resort. Teams will be drawn
and posted on the bar's tourna-


courses recommended depend-
ing upon the individual's posi-
tion and the role they would
play in an emergency situation.
He and City Manager C.B.
Shirey had previously decided.
they needed to inform the coun-
cil of the issue, as there are
deadlines to meet the various
stages of compliancy.
Agencies both in Avon Park
and other departments through-
out the county have already
been taking NIMS courses.
"We are 100 percent compli-
ant," Police Chief Frank.
Mercurio said. "Anytime multi-
ple groups or disciplines are
participating in an event, there
must be unified command."
He is requiring all of his
sworn officers to take the train-
ing.
The fire department is also
on target with NIMS training,
according to Mercurio and.
Shirey.

we've used for the past 50 years
don't work anymore," Pete
McDevitt, a Sebring Airport
Authority board member, said.
"We'll pull it from wherever
it is," he said, explaining that
corridor money is available.
"There's all kinds of ways to do
things."
But, raising taxes is one of
them, McDevitt said, calling
taxes a "cop-out."
Willingham said the airport
is helping to facilitate an East-
West Corridor here, but would-
n't specify how, other than play
the role of cheerleader.'
"We need to keep the project
moving. forward and not let
everybody get too focused on
the cost," he said. "We need to
focus on the vision. If we built
today what we have the money
for, we could build only five
miles of that (Corridor)."
The state doesn't have
enough money to complete
projects- already on the long-
range plan.
When the East-West discus-
sions began 18 months ago,
estimated cost of the 130-150
miles of Corridor was about
$1,.5 billion, half of the current
estimate that is expected to
increase with time.
Joe McClash, a Manatee
County commissioner and
advocate of the highway that
would terminate in his county,
said 25-30 years have elapsed
since the state last constructed a
divided highway Interstates
4 and 75.

;New projects must pass the
economic feasibility test -
after 12 years the new road
must be able to meet 50 percent
of its debt service (interest);
after 22 years meet 100 percent
of the debt service; and after 30
-years have the debt paid off.

Getting an

ear full

They warned me.
"Take care of your ears," Bill
Serey had said.
He is a scuba diving instruc-
tor and with Martin Schnell
owns and operates Fear Not
Scuba Inc.
"If you can't clear your ears,
don't go diving," Serey had
added.'. "It's too painful. Clear
them every few feet, it comes
*easier that way."
You'd think, given that those
words are scribbled into my
notebook in my own handwrit-
ing, that I would have followed
the advice when the time was
right.
You'd think, given that
Serey speaks in a drill
seriejnt's bark, that the words
would have made an impres-
sion.
Especially as how Serey had
assigned me my own diving
partner and tutor, T.J. Phalon,
who repeated the message at
least twice that I remember.
But what can I tell you?
\\ hen you're doing something
tfor' the first time, especially
something that's complicated,
exciting and a little bit danger'-
ous, it's easy to make a mis-
take.

Hobby that requires

knowledge is safe,

but can be

dangerous
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY ,
News-Sun
SEBRING Bill Serey retired
after a career as a police officer and
military diver.
Originally from Kentucky, he
moved to Highlands County when his
wife Tanya accepted a position with
Florida Hospital Heartland Division.
Not a man content to sit around the
house although he loves taking care
of their two daughters, Lauren, 9, and
Lindsay, 11 he soon found a partner
and opened a scuba diving school.
Now he and Martin Schnell have
Fear Not Scuba Inc. up and running,
with several younger divers coming
quickly on line to be additional
instructors. That means, Serey hopes,
that soon there will be no wait for any-
one wanting to learn how to dive.
It is a hobbN that requires special
knowledge, good health, and a serious
attitude while it.is safe, it can be
dangerous.
Serey :regrets that Hollywood has
made so many movies with scuba div-
ing in them. On the one hand he said,
they make it look too easy. On the
other hand they make it look too scary.
In fact, Serey says, with proper
preparation scuba diving is not only
fun, it's addictive. It's even great for
kids he said.
One of his di'e masters, T. J.
Phalon, Who is a candidate to become
a diing instructor, agrees.
Phalon had li\ed life high and dry
\%hen he met Sere. about two years
ago. At that time he'd never been div-
ing at all. No\\ his dai job supports his
dating program and he has been on
Diore Ling isnt hep.
Diing isn't cheap.


Serey said it's roughly equivalent to
snow skiing in terms of cost, both for
initial equipment and paying for get-
ting to the slope or the reef.
And it does involve a lot of science
that has to be taken seriously. Gauges
and computers help a lot in planning a
dive and enjoying it successfully, but
it is essential to have a sound under-
standing of the theory behind the prac-
tice.
Why is water pressure so important,
for example, and what to do if some-
thing goes wrong 40 feet underwater.
That is why responsible dive
schools have a mixed approach to
teaching.
Textbooks are used in the begin-
ning, Serey said, then video tapes, as
well as lectures. That's because no two
people learn the snme way, and he
needs to know everyone gets the mes-
sage.
Then the actual water training
begins in the, shallow end of a
swimming pool.
After about' 18 hours of instruction
on dry land, and about 18 hours of
highly controlled in-water.training, a
novice diveris ready for two super-
vised open water dives.
With an open water certification, a
diver may procure air fills and diving
equipment and dive independently,
although not alone.
Fear Not Scuba can get people that
far for about $400. Buying one's own
equipment costs about $1,000.
Fear Not, which shares a store front'
with a paint ball company\ but is in no
way connected with it, is at 3650 U. S.
27 South. That's at the old Food Lion.
which The School Board of Highlands
County is planning to purchase.
. Shop hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday;
The telephone number is 402-2100.
Serey and his divers are often in the
\jiaer ejrl\ in the morning and late in
the anternuon, kae.,i messagsi_ uJ

Martha's Beauty

Salon reopens

SEBRING Martha's
Beauty Salon has been serving
Highlands County for 20 years
and has recently reopened its
doors on East Center Avenue,
after closing following the
2004 hurricanes.
Martha's Beauty Salon is
owned and operated by Martha
and Serafin Ramos of Sebring.
A ribbon cutting will take place
at 4 p.m. Monday at 127 E.
Center Ave. in Sebring.


FULL
Continued from 13A
gears, and hit the accelerator all
at the same time, not to mention
braking and steering. There was,
an overwhelming amount of
things to think about and
remember. No wonder Dad
ended. up screaming as we
jerked slowly forward.
Well, putting on all the very
cool scuba diving gear, and
wading out into Lake Denton
had a similar effect. Plus there
were a lot of distractions.
For instance, I couldn't get
over how much I felt like I was
in a James Bond adventure -
to be bobbing in water way over
my head, with a tank strapped
on my back listening to the
sound of myself breathing, sur-
rounded by other water-slicked
heads, all strangely quiet.
And it was especially cool
when the other divers each held
up their air release valve,
squeezing the trigger that vent-
ed air out of their buoyancy
vests, so each smoothly sank
out of sight w Nih a. hissing
sound and effervescence of
bubbles. Ii % a just like being'
in a sci-fi movie.
I 'was, SpongeBob-eager by
the time Phalon gestured that
we should descend. I couldn't
wait to raise up my air valve
and sink like a stone.
Only I'd forgotten how fast
stones sink. ,
Asit happened, two things
occurred simultaneously. I hit
the bottom of the-lake, 20 feet
down, just as my ears burst into
pain:
I don't think I've ever experi-
enced anything quite as terrible.
If you'd pounded a sharp spike
into each ear it wouldn't have
been more painful it was
enough to render me stupid.
For a moment or two all I
could do was feel it. Then out of
the haze I saw Phalon making
the OK sign with his fingers,
the rest of his body a giant
question mark. "Are you OK?"
he was saying.
It took another moment to
remember the signal he had
taught me, to use if there was
trouble. But I finally waggled
my hand like you do on dry
land if you're saying something
is only so-so. Then I pointed to
my ears.
I'm a little foggy on the next
two or three minutes, but I think
Phalon had me holding my nose
and trying to pop my ears,
while he took control of my air
pressure valve and got me back
up to the surface.
There, the :pain. greatly
reduced, but my ears still didn't
pop, and they felt like they were
full of liquid.
'Just about then I suddenly
tired out, like a car abruptly
running out of gas. It looked a
long distance to the shore.
On' the point .af panic I
remembered the buoyancy vest
and pumped more air into it.
Instantly I was floating more
freely.
But I told Phalon I'd had
enough and we flipped on
backs, letting the vests support
us as we slowly paddled our
way back to land.
That was on a Friday.
Saturday I thought I was just
about back to normal.
Then came Sunday, rain and
a definite change in barometric
pressure. I woke up to a wicked
ear ache in my left ear, which
didn't get better.
By Monday I was calling
friends for advice. They all


insisted I see a doctor.
Turns out the ear drum,
which protects the inner ear
from the outside world, had
been sucked in by my rapid
descent into the lake. Instead of
being convex, in other words,
the ear drums were now con-
cave.
The doctor felt the main rea-
son they hadn't:"popped" back
into place was that I had aggra-
vated the eustachian tubes,
swelling them shut so the ears
couldn't equalize. He pre-
Sscribed anti-biotics and steroids
and told me to be patient the
cure would have to arrive natu-
rally when the tubes opened


up..
That was four days ago. My
right ear is decidedly better, but
my left still gives me problems.
In spite of the kerfuffle, if I
could I'd go back to diving
tomorrow, it was that much fun.
I highly recommend it.
But for heaven's sakes go
slow and pop your ears often.

Happy Father's Day to all
the dads out there. I hope your
families remembered you and
your day is a pleasant one.
Meanwhile, I want to talk
about some homeowners. This
is of interest to fathers. My dad
had a workshop in our home in
Jacksonville where he did stuff.
And I am sure some of it had to
do with our house, I just can't
remember any of it. This is
because children never think
too much about home mainte-
nance. They are too busy
destroying the home or ignoring
the home to think about it being
maintained.
Now sometimes guys do
things that are not conducive to
good home maintenance.; I am
thinking specifically of Norin
Enrique, of California. It seems
that earlier this month Enrique
detected gold in his yard with
what the article called a "gold
detector."
Now I had not even known
there was such a thing as a
"gold detector." I have heard of
metal detectors that can find all


Wright makes

the right mark
Editor:
I received a letter that I am
sending you a copy of; a letter
that my son sent to me. I
believe you will agree with the
letter. It goes to show that we
need to start to have guts again.
To me, it shows to us all what is
wrong with us and the nation.
S"This pastor has guts!
Thought you. might enjoy this
interesting prayer. given in
Kansas at the opening session
of their Senate. It seems prayer
still upsets some people. When
Minister Joe Wright was asked
to open the new session of the
Kansas Senate, everyone was
expecting the usual generali-
ties, but this is what they heard:
"' Heat'enl Father, welcome
before you today to ask your
forgiveness and to seek your
direction and guidance. We
know your Word says, 'Woe to
those who call evil good,' but
that is exactly what we have
done. We have lost our spiritu-
al equilibrium and reversed our
values.
'We have exploited the
poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and
called it welfare. We have
killed our unborn and called it
choice. We have shot abortion-
ists and called it justifiable. We
have neglected to discipline our
children and called it building
self-esteem. We have abused
power and called it politics. We
have coveted our neighbor's
possessions and called it ambi-
tion.
'We have polluted the air
with profanity and pornogra-
phy and called itfreedom of
expression. We have ridiculed
,the time-honored values of our
forefathers and called it
enlightenment.
'Search us, Oh God and
know our hearts today; cleanse
us from every sin and set us
free. Amen!"
"The response was immedi-
ate. A 'number of legislators
walked out during the prayer in
protest. In six short weeks,
Central Christian Church,
where the Rev. Wright is pas-
tor, logged more than 5,000
'phone calls with only 47 of
those calls responding nega-
tively. The' church is now
receivifig international requests
for copies of this prayer from
India, Africa and Korea.'
"Commentator Paul Harvey,
aired this prayer on his radio
program, 'The Rest of the
Story,' and received a larger
response to than any other he
has ever aired. With the Lord's
help, may this prayer sweep
oyer our nation and whole-
heartedly become our desire so
that we can, again be called
'one nation under God.' "
Dick Nelson
Sebring

Editor's note:, According to
Snopes.com, the Rev. Wright's
prayer was a version of one writ-
ten in 1995 by Bob, Russell who
offered it at the Kentucky
Governor's Prayer Breakfast in
Frankfort.

ently there is such a
thing.
Before you go
out and invest in one of these
things, continue reading.
Enrique thought he detected
gold near his front patio. So he
began to dig. According to the
article, he only intended to dig
three or four feet.
Well, he dug deeper than
that. A lot deeper. After 10 days
of digging, the hole in his yard
got 60 feet deep. In the end,
authorities called a halt to the
search when they discovered,
that Enrique had two men using
dirt and a rope while inside.the
hole, which was not reinforced.
Enrique will have to pay for
an engineer to evaluate the 'iiu-
ation and probably have to pay
for the hole to be filled in Too
bad he never found any gold -
he could use it for this. "

is. But even I can
tell the difference
between four feet
and 60 feet.

Then there is the guy who
had an innovative solution to
his lawn mowing chores.
Instead of a lawn mower, he
had I am not kidding a pet
goat.- Before Buddy the goat,
Bob Perkins had sheep doing
the same thing.
* The goat, according to a
neighbor, was quiet and friend-
ly. Unfortunately for Perkins,
the town council has ordered
him to get rid of the goat. The
mayor of Manhattan, Mont.,
made the argument that if he let
Perkins keep his goat, other
townspeople, could have goats.
Anrid with the place growing,
the) couldn't allow that.
.Perkins is. not a happy per-
son. "I can keep two obnoxious
dogs, but not a cute goat," he is
quoted as saying. .


No word on where Buddy the
goat will go, though if he's
good at mowing lawns maybe
he could go into business?
If you guys decide to spend
Father's Day installing bath-
room fixtures, be careful what
you find in them. On June 8, a
homeowner found something
extra in a bathroom vanity he'd
gotten from Home Depot:
drugs. Fifty pounds of marijua-
na, to be exact.
It was not the only time a
Massachusetts Home Depot had
found a stash of drugs in one of
their cabinets. A total of five
cabinets were found to have an
illegal surprise, all in the space
of a week.
Authorities speculate that a
smuggling operation has been
discovered and disrupted. No
one has been caught yet.
May your Father's Day be
without these-complications.

Evils in society

are important
Editor:.
I was recently impressed
with the veracity of the
Democratic House Speaker. He
was criticizing the president for
even considering the amend-
ment prohibiting gay marriage
.with so many important issues
needing attention.
To me, it i's very sad to think
we have leaders who do not
think the evils in our society ..
are important. That's the equiv-
alent of' removing the founda-
tion from under our homes and
expecting them to stand.
Our president is working on
other issues; immigration and
taxes are of great concern to
him. One party can not accom-
plish the task. It takes both.
working together. It is time our
leaders woke up to that fact and
started working .to accomplish
the task they were elected to
do. ,
I have -recently. heard com-
ments in the news about turn-
ing our government back over


Marking the
I was three months pregnant
when I received the call that my
father had passed away, and
made the. trip, to Georgia with
my husband and my small
daughter. It was the first time
my adult siblings and I had
been together in several years,
so we sat around the kitchen
table in my grandmother's
house swapping stories about
Dad and other childhood mem-
ories.
My father used to play the
guitar. He and his friends would
to get together for impromptu
jam sessions and fill the house
with classic country music. We
listened to one of his tapes.
"You're going to the ceme-
tery, right?" my sisters asked'. I
had missed the funeral, and I
got the impression that they,
wondered how I was holding up
so well, being that they had
cried gallons since I had arrived
in Georgia and I had not shed
the first tear.
"Of course," I replied. I
couldn't have them thinking I
didn't care. Of course I cared. I


to the people. I think most of us
would like to see that happen.
Just because poll ratings are
lower for our president doesn't
mean we want all the evils in
our society ignored. If you had
a record of how the other side
, has voted, you could see, this is
a people lacking in morals.
Of course, you can't always
'tell by what is said. Some peo-
ple say one thing and uphold
thd opposite-any-thing to get
elected. I don't think that kind
of leadership will make our
country prosperous.
I'm so thankful Lthe war is
over there and not here. Ipray it
can. be resolved but I'm sure it
is a difficult with the insurgents infiltrating
the Iraqi 'police .'force, which.
makes it. almost impossible to
tell friend from foe.
It would be refreshing to see
the politicians run on their con-
victions and not on what they
think we want to hear just to get
elected. I don't think we have to
,be exceedingly farsighted to
realize that the evil surrounding
us is largely responsible for the
breakdown in our society.


Pornography has ruined
many young lives, contributed
to murder, kidnapping and rape
to mention a few. When parents
are so busy trying to make
another dollar they' neglect the
training of their children, they"
do not have the foundation to
realize the importance of home
and family causing an increase
in divorce.
We have many heeds in our
world today, but none are more
important than our children. If
they aren't taught right from
wrong with every influence for
good being deleted from our
society, what can we expect for
the generations to come?
I hope I never have to'live in
a society where every person
makes his own rules, but I'm
also concerned about future
generations.
God gave us a 'book of
instructions and the conse-
quences for not following it.
Let us pray that God will give
us the wisdom to elect right-
eous leaders.

death of a loving father

didn't know what I was think-
ing. How could I not care? But
why wasn't I crying?
"Good," they both said, "you
have to see what Larry did."
It was at that point that my
-sister handed me a little elf I
had given my dad for Christmas
27 years prior. The elf had
adorned the rear view mirror of
every vehicle he drove from
that day forward. Holding it in
my hand I was immediately
transported to the cab of his

through at about 10 p.m. to
remind us that a child should

she was not prepared to lose a

buried her. We cried and
hugged her and smiled with her
before she made her way back
to bed to continue to grieve.
The next morning dawned
cold and, rainy as I prepared for
the visit to the cemetery. I held
back, not yet ready to go, and
not sure why. I had arrived too
late to be there for the ceremo-
ny, what was the point really?
"You have to go. You have to
see what Larry did," my sisters
kept insisting.
The freshly turned red
Georgia- earth at the cemetery

better. I knew that when I got

shoes for weeks weeks to be
reminded of my trip to Georgia
and why we werit.
I was led past several tomb-
stones, watching fervently for
the one that displayed his name,
not wanting it to sneak up on
me, wanting to be prepared. We
turned a corner and my sisters
both stopped. I was confused.
I saw no headstone, only a
white guitar molded in con-
crete, standing on .its broad
base, wet from the rain. It was-
'n't until I saw the bronze plaque
set in the body of the guitar, that
I realized it displayed the name
I had been seeking.
I don't know when I hit my


knees exactly, don't really
know when I started sobbing
but sob I did.
My sisters both sighed in sat-
isfaction as though this reaction
from me was what they had
been waiting for, and I finally
discovered what my brother
Larry had done. He had dili-
gently fashioned the headstone
himself. It was as smooth as
glass, a perfect replica of Dad's
six-string Fender.
I understood then that I had
not accepted my father's death.
I knew he had died, but I had
not truly accepted it until I was
there, at his final resting place. I
also realized that it was not that
I didn't love him, or didn't miss
him, but that I was still in
shock. Suddenly I could hear,
the words to the songs he sang
me, the low rumble of his


laughter, the thump of his heart
on my cheek when. he hugged
me.
I was left to my tears, my sis-
ters giving me time to get con-
trol of myself. I don't know
how long I was there I do
know that when*I finally got to
my feet. I was chilled to the
bone and wet through and
through. I studied the gravesite
a few minutes more, said my
goodbyes and made my way
back to the car, memorizing
every detail of the cemetery,
and committing the name to
memory, for I knew that one
day I would return to visit my
father where he lay in the red
Georgia earth, under a concrete
guitar.

Too many seat belts left unbuckled


S NEVER PAINT, SPRAY-CRETE OR
STUCCO YOUR HOUSE AGAIN!SM6


Recently local and
state law enforcement
agencies completed
the latest "Click-it-
or-Ticket" campaign.
Currently, Florida's
statewide safety belt
usage rate is 73.9 per-
cent (August 2005)...
This means that near-
ly one-quarter of
Floridians are putting
themselves at need-
less risk because they
fail to wear their safe-
ty belts.


HIGHWAY
HOTLINE
J.P. Fane


According to the
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles, more than
62 percent of the vehicle occu-
pants killed .(which excludes
.pedestrians, bicyclists, and
motorcyclists) during 2004
were unbuckled.
There is clearly much work
to be done.
Both the individual agency
and cumulative results for this
campaign were very impres-
,sive, During this time frame,
more than 700 citations were
written 'for seat belt violations
(there were 1,313 citations writ-


ten for seat belt vio-
lations in all of 2005
in Highlands
County), and there
were over 14 driving
under the influence
arrests made. Forty
outstanding warrants
were served, as well
as 25 drug arrests
were made during the
same time frame.
Please keep in
mind that this is only
a partial listing as I
do not have the fig-


ures for all of the
agencies involved.
It does show what a great
combined effort can transpire
when law enforcement contin-
ues to work towards a common
goal: Your safety.
Many people ask why such a
focus on. seat belt usage. Here
are just few of the facts and
reasons' on why:
Safety belt use is the single
most effective way to protect
you, coworkers, friends and
loved ones against injury and
death in traffic crashes.
Safety belts reduce the risk


of dying in a rollover crash by
up to 80 percent.
M Still, here in Florida, 2,179
passenger vehicle occupants
died in traffic crashes during
2004 and more than 62 percent
of those killed ,were not using
their safety belts at the time of
the crash.
Across the United States,
while only about a fifth of
Americans live in rural areas,
rural traffic fatalities accounted
for 58 percent of the nation's
total motor vehicle related
deaths in 2004.
While it was a wonderful
effort during this last enforce-
ment period, your law enforce-
ment officers are not going to
stop there. We are dedicated to
working as hard as possible to
save as many lives as possible.
As the old saying goes
"Remember the life we save
may be yours!"
With that* in mind we are
preparing to enter the very next
enforcement wave that is sched-
uled to start June 21 and run
through Aug. 17. It is called
Summer H.E.A.T (Heavy
Enforcement of All Traffic)


Mobilization.
Many motor vehicle crashes
occur during the summer in
Florida. The. goal of this cam-
paign is to remind Florida
motorists to be safe during the
summer and avoid becoming a
statistic by obeying all traffic
laws. Special- enforcement
efforts will target speeding,
impaired driving, and failure to
use safety belts.
I hope this serves as a gentle
reminder to please stay focused
while you are traveling on our
roadways. Stay alert to your
surroundings and keep in mind
the rules of the road. With sum-
mer here, many of us are think-
ing about various activities that
we are involved in. While you
are driving, with just a little
extra effort at concentrating on
the task at hand, we can all
arrive safely at our destinations.
Drive defensively and arrive
alive.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

The ultimate

father
Dads. They're tall and
slim, short and stocky; some
are younger, others are
older. There are dads who
have their own businesses
and dads who work for
someone else. Dads are usu-
ally competitive, but some
enjoy a good book to a foot-
ball game.
Dads may differ in a vari-
ety of ways; yet, there are
similarities that come with
the territory of being a male
with a family to care for.
But, all dads can be ultimate
dads.
An acronym of the word
"ultimate" will help see how
that's possible.
U equals understanding.
When a child can come to
his dad and express his
ideas, fears or dreams with-
out trembling, he has a dad
with an understanding heart..
L stands for loving. Love
takes many forms often
expressed in a dad, s desire
to protect and support his
family. However, it also
means time spent with his
children; tenderness of the
gentle warrior as he changes
a diaper or wipes away a
tear.
T equals transparent. This
simply translates to being
approachable. Dad is some-
one the childrenJook for-
ward to seeing, talking to -
knowing he's big enough to
admit mistakes, ask forgive-
ness and; yet, stand strong
for truth without compro- .
mise. No 'guesswork. They
know who he is.
I corresponds to insight-
fulness.: Children will bene-
fit from going to Dad to
receive instruction, help
w th s.l ing a problem or,
fi\ing that blioken bike. He's
happi to share wisdom,
skills and discerning percep-
tions to help his children
mature.
M equals masculinity.
Dads should be the men
God's created them to be
and lead lovingly and confi-
dently. Physical and moral
strength modeled for their
children will result in well-
adjusted sons and daughters.
A equals authority. God
has given men the role of
authority in the home. When
demonstrated in servant
leadership, dad encourages
his family to lean on his
strength and look to him for
direction and guidance.
T equals trustworthiness.'
A dad who keeps his prom-
ises, walks in integrity and
loves his wife unselfishly is
a dad in whom the trust of
his children dwells.
E stands for an example.
When all of the above traits
come together, dad will be a
man of character whose
example will not go unno-
ticed.
"Blessed is the man who
does not walk in the counsel
of the wicked or stand in the
way of sinners or sit in the
seat of mockers. But his
delight is in the law of the
Lord, and on his law he
meditates day and night,"',
Psalm 1: & 2, NIV.
The dad who walks with
God, the'Ultimate Father,
will more closely reflect the
Heavenly Father's irrmage to
his children.
Dads, be the ultimate.
Selah.

Father's Day not recognized until after Mother's Day declared


It's interesting to learn that
Mother's Day was celebrated
first, but the idea carried over to
a celebration of dads when a
young wife desired to honor her
widowed father, a Civil War
veteran who raised six children.
First proposed in 1909, sup-
ported by President Calvin
Coolidge as a national day in
1924, designated by President
Lyndon Johnson the third
Sunday of June, it still took
until a 1974 Presidential
Proclamation to make Father's
Day an annual celebration.
The. dictionary defines a
father as a man who begets or
raises a child. One of my
favorite Bible stories is com-
monly known as the story of the
prodigal son, but it is the father-
ly traits that make this story io
compelling. We see the father as
a good provider, we realize his
generous spirit in giving a
younger son his inheritance


before his own death, and the
picture of the father looking
down the road for his son's
return mirrors the love of
fathers' for children who may
have fled the home nest. The
prodigal son was remorseful,
but his father went much further
than he expected or deserved,
and called for the-best clothing,
a ring for his finger, and a feast
to celebrate his return. What a
picture of love.
Johann Schiller wrote, "It is
not flesh and blood but the heart
which makes, us fathers and
sons." Celebrate with us by
reading the Beverly Lewis juve-
nile book "Pickle Pizza," a
story of a boy hoping to sur-
prise his grandfather on
Father's Day. He tries both a
bird sculpture and a pickle
pizza and worries about the
acceptability of both gifts.
In "Best Man for the Job,"
we find Mitzi's father, heavy


and clumsy and not
her image of the ideal
father, wreaking
havoc in his attempts
to be a good dad, until
the true meaning of
Father's Day becomes
clear.
Elizabeth Stone's
lovely quote speaks
volumes. "Making the
decision to have a L[
child is momentous. It
is to decide forever to CO
have your heart go He
walking around out- -
side your body."
There are dilemmas
when it comes to this holiday,
as you will find in "Father's
Day Blues: What Do You Do
About Father's Day When All
You Have Are Mothers?"
Chapter book readers will
find the Arthur book "Arthur
and the 1,001 Dads," addresses
another problem kids face when


IN

ar
ss


Father's Day comes
around. Arthur and
his friends. try to
find a substitute to
attend the Father's
Day picnic with
Buster, whose father
is not around much
J: since his parents'
IARy divorce.
One of our lasting
IES memories from the
years my husband
olyn taught school is the
elink recognition night on
- the football field of
the team members in
that small rural
school. Everyone was in their
uniform and all the kids except
one had at least one parent
there. There was no hiding the
sadness and disappointment of
that one player whose dad had
"stopped off at the bar" and,
once again didn't show up for
an important time in his son's


life.
Journey with me to a far
away place as you watch our
video of "The Rifleman" with
two episodes of the rifle-toting
Lucas McCain and his son,
Mark, ranchers striving to
maintain a small spread in
North Fork, N.M., during the
late 1800s. Lessons in being a
dad were a part of every
episode.
Colonel Potter of the
"M*A*S*H" television series
had a wise thought about father-


hood when he said, "I don't
care how poor a man is; if he
has family, he's rich,"
Happy Father's Day to the
best of fathers.

Adelines present music

scholarship to Breed


Heart of Adelines Show
Chorus Chapter of Sweet
Adelines International gives a
$1,000 music scholarship to
Allison Breed, daughter of
Mark and Brook Breed.
Breed's plans are to attend
Samford University in
Birmingham, Ala., where she
will be enrolled in music educa-
tion. Her piano talent goes back
11 years and she has played the
flute five years. Her talent has
allowed her to receive numer-
ous scholarships to fund her
education. She's had a vision to


major in instrumental music
education for many years. At
Sebring High, she was in
marching band four years, band
colonel in her junior year and
' drum major in her senior year.
She is a big fan of opera music.
'Brook Breed says this was
God's plan for Allison's life
because doors continue to open
for her.
President Bette Killeen pre-
sented a mock check to Breed
with the actual check being sent
directly to the university for her
to use as needed.

Florida's rainy season is just now approaching


Lately we've been getting a
lot of calls into our office from
people concerned about the low
water levels in Highlands
County's lakes. Almost every
lake in the county is experienc-.
ing lower water levels, howev-
er, it is normal for the end of the
season.
Rainfall is the single greatest
factor affecting lake water lev-
els. Most lakes in Highlands
County receive inflow from
rain, the watershed's surface
water runoff, and/or groundwa-
ter seepage.
We are at the end of the dry
season. Lake levels are natural-
ly lower this time of year due to
very little rainfall. Lakes lose
outflow through evaporation
and drainage via creeks,
streams, .and water control
structures. Lower groundwater
levels result in a decline in the
amount of groundwater that'
feeds seepage lakes.
The good news: Florida's
rainy season is fast approach-
ing. June through September
are the wettest months, charac-
terized by frequent showers and
summer lightning storms. Lake
levels will start to rise as rain
'falls in the watershed and drains
into lakes. Seepage lakes also
,will have rising water levels
'because .rainwater- is -the pri -


mary source for
groundwater
recharge.
Lake water level
fluctuations occur
naturally and are
healthy for lakes. The
benefits of lower
water levels in lakes
include: drying of
exposed sediments
promoting faster
decomposition of
organic .matter
(muck), growth of
new vegetation on
exposed lake bottom
and in adjacent
marshes, improved

habitat for fish and other aquat-
ic organisms, and improved
water quality as a result of
increased plant growth. Lake
level fluctuations also prevent
the buildup of tussocks.
Tussock is a, very dense
growth of plants that takes over
the shoreline and expands out
into the lake. You also can't
boat through it. Tussock is very
expensive to remove. In 2001,
1,300 acres of tussock were
removed from Lake Istokpoga
at a cost of $3 million,
On some lakes, humans have
built structures to artificially
control.ake water levels, usual-
ly for flood control. Lake


structure,
ule..


Istokpoga is the per-
fect example..
Currently, the
U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers deter-
mines what level the
lake shall be at dur-
ing a particular
month. The current
schedule is based on
flood control, water
supply, and naviga-
tion, but not environ-
mental considera-
tions. The South
Florida Water
Management
District actually
operates the outlet
based on the sched-


, A paragraph in the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan allows the
USACE to consider changing
the schedule to include ecologi-
cal needs of the lake as a con-
sideration. The lake is currently
restricted to a two-foot fluctua-
tion, between 37.5 and 39.5 feet
above sea level, while the natu-
ral fluctuation ranged from 36
to 43 feet, averaging 3.3 feet
annually.
Today, the lake can no longer
be allowed above 39.5 feet
because the homes around the
lake would be flooded.


However, the lake could be
allowed to drop to 36 feet every
few years. Although ecological-
ly sound, a drastic decline in
water level may have economic
pitfalls.
Recreation on Lake
Istokpoga has a strong econom-
ic base in the county.
Many of the canals would no
longer be navigable if water
levels were to drop to 36 feet
above sea level. For this reason,
our office is currently evaluat-
ing how deep residential canals
need to be dredged in order to
remain navigable during low
water levels,
Another consideration of the
study involves testing the con-
tents of the sediments for haz-
ardous materials.

Divine guidance leads



Finney to new book


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Tracy
Finney had heartburn one
night and couldn't sleep: To
distract herself, she decided
to write a story.
Immediately the title, "God
Will Make A Way," came to
her and the words flowed.
Afterward, she printed it out
for her four kids Bethany,
12; Daniel, 11; Jonathan, 8,
and Moriah, 6 whom she
home schools. Finney stress-
es that being a wife and moth-
er is her most important
career.
In "God Will Make A
Way," 13-year-old Renee first
deals with her parents' death,
while later she is faced with
adult trials. This beautiful


_s_ Christian
Y,, romance has
a majestic
setting in the
Highlands of
Scotland and
is often told
with humor.
FINNEY She shows
that, life is
full of God's faithfulness so
that all obstacles can be over-
come.
The setting for her book no
doubt comes from personal
experience. She was born and
raised near Niagara Falls in
New York, and met her future
husband John when he attend-
ed his brother's wedding
there. He returned a year later
for a visit and they were mar-
ried within seven months and


moved to Isle of Skye,
Scotland.
Her husband was an evan-
gelist with Skye Bible Church
and they often shared their
home, food and friendship
with others. "I miss the
church work. It was beautiful
there, but cold and rainy. I can
still smell the wet grass. Our
first three children were born
there. Moriah is the only
Floridian," Finney said.
Finney hopes that this book
- her expression of God's
gift will encourage others
along life's journey and will
remind them that He- is
always with us and will never
leave us.
"God Will Make A Way"

Christmas in July comes to Kenilworth


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The historic
Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring
will present the eighth annual
Christmas in July Arts and
Crafts Show on July 8-9. It is a
fun arts and crafts show that
offers an excellent opportunity
to get a head start and avoid the
Christmas frenzy.
Artists and craft booths will
be on the verandah and in the
Kenilworth Lodge's three air-
conditioned meeting rooms.
The Plantation Ballroom, main
site of the show, is the original
hotel ballroom, built in 1919.
The historic lobby, with multi-
ple seating areas and a large
screen TV, is a perfect place for
spouses to sit and relax while
their counterparts enjoy the arts
and crafts show.
Admission to the show is
free. There will be several door
prizes given away at the end of


the show. Attendees bringing a
newspaper article or ad may
enter a special drawing. Snacks
and refreshments will be avail-
able in the "Dragonette's Cafe."
Lake Placid Dragonettes pro-
ceeds will help fund uniforms
and supplies.
The Christmas in July Arts
and Crafts Show is a favorite
place to find many handmade
items including adult and kids'
clothing, jewelry, photography,
art, wood folk art decor items,
gourmet foods, soaps, painted
glass items, gift items and
more. While there are a variety
of Christmas items, the show
also offers many pieces that are
appropriate for year-round use
or gift giving.
An arts and crafts show is a
particularly good place to pur-
chase gifts for that friend or
family member that "has every-
thing."

Reduce stormwater runoff


* This is another in a
series of articles writ-
ten about the new
area urban conserva-
tion program called
Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods.

Great strides have
been made here in
central Florida to
reduce what is called
"point sources" of
pollution such as
smokestacks and
sewage discharge.


GROWING
SEASON

Highlands
County Master
Gardeners


But a more widely spread and
scattered source of pollution,
nonpointt source, pollution", is
threatening our ecosystems.
Dissolved pollutants can
reach our groundwater through
a process called leaching. Our
sandy soils in this 'area are cer-
tainly prone to leaching and
possibly runoff during the
upcoming rainy season. A prop-
erly landscaped yard, with good
mulching and a healthy lawn
can absorb stormwater runoff,
protecting Florida's natural
waters. Runoff that is not
absorbed often contain nitrogen
and phosphorus from fertilizers
that fuel algal blooms in our
streams and lakes. These
blooms smother natural vegeta-
tion, depleting oxygen, which
kills fish. More alarming, harm-
ful substances, such as house-


hold pesticides and
fertilizers, may leach
into our water sup-
ply, which can harm
people and aquatic
life.
One of the basic
concepts of a
Florida-Friendly
yard is that rain that
falls in your yard
should soak into
your yard. If your
roof has rain gutters,
aim the downspouts
at a porous surface so


water can soak into the soil and
not run down the street or pool
next to buildings. You may wish
to incorporate functional earth
shaping into your landscape
such as swales and berms which
can help divert runoff that
would otherwise rush from
your yard. If you have a water-
front property adding a mainte-
nance-free zone of native wet-
land plants to a berm or swale
will make your yard more
waterfront-friendly.'
Rain barrels or cisterns may
be used to capture rainwater.
The Highlands County Master
Gardeners have rain barrels
available for a small donation.
They also have information
available on how to build your
own rain barrel. Barrels are
great for hand watering, and
they are not mosquito breeding


grounds if the downspout fits
tightly and openings are
screened. Cisterns will store a
greater supply of rainwater that
may be used for non-potable
uses but require more engineer-
ing.
Whenever possible use
porous materials such as mulch,
gravel, brick and pervious con-
crete for walkways, driveways
or patios. They allow rainwater
to seep into the ground, helping
to filter pollutants and reducing
the amount of runoff from your
yard.
* Finally, use pesticides and
fertilizers wisely so they are
retained in the yard and do not
run off or are leached into the
ground water.
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program is
being implemented through
your local County Extension
Service in Highlands,
Okeechobee and Glades coun-
ties and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319
funding from the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.

Ed Ayen is available to address
interested groups such as home-
owners associations, voluntary
organizations and clubs. He can
be reached at 402-6540.

Blessings?

each of us every day. Sometimes, because of
our attitudes or outlooks on life, we either
do not recognize our blessings or we take
them for granted. A blessing may be as
simple as receiving a kind word from a
friend, or as wondefidl as awakening each .
morning to a nHew day. tWe may feel that '
some individuals receive more blessings fronr,
the Lord lhain others; hottweve,; perhaps they
may be just more aware of God's goodness
toward them. Just as "beauty is in the eye of
the beholder," blessings are in the eye of the
receiver Those who can recognize God's
blessings, may ask, "Why atm I so blessed?"
The answer is simple: God loves us. He
asks for nothing in return except our love
and for us to live o.'alives as He would
want. People who can recognize God's
blessings are niorei onikht and happier with
their lives. They ctTffacgept the good times

There's not a

lot of sport in

canned hunts
Just a short time ago, I read of this
fellow who was planning to offer
canned hunts of big game to hunters
through the Internet. The animals are
living on a fenced in ranch to prevent
their escape somewhere in the south-
west.
For a fee, the hunter could sit at
his personal computer thousands of
miles awdy and aim a rifle and pull
the trigger, all by remote control.
The carcass of the animal would
be butchered, cut, wrapped and
frozen. If wanted, the trophy head
and cape would be sent to a taxider-
mist for mouriting. There was an
extra fee for this service, making the
remote control hunt expensive.
This kind of killing is just another
convenience for busy wealthy
hunters who want to put a head on
their wall to boost their macho ego
without putting any physical effort
into a real hunt.
The person who would take
advantage of this kind of conven-
ience cannot be called a hunter. This
is, no doubt, the ultimate in canned
hunting.
Wanting a trophy big-game head
to hang on the wall of his den, a so-
called sportsman can join a club of

FIELD
Continued from ID
"I'd take chalk and sketch it,
then run to other side of the
field and look at it, take a pic-
ture and make sure it looks
right, and run close up again
and change it," explained
Ritter. "The first day I did it, it
rained and washed off every-
thing I'd done." Ritter laughs
at the lesson in outdoor
artistry. "You can see where I
put (permanent) marker up it
case it rains again."
The closest section to com-
pletion at the moment is the
right side, featuring a Dixie
Leaguer jumping over the out-
stretched mitt of a catcher, his
bold No. 19 jersey masterfully,
shaded and outlined in yellow
and light blue. Incomplete
scenes show a player jumping
exuberantly into the arms of a
teammate and a coach sitting
on a bucket gazing out onto
the field.
For a young mural artist
looking for inspiration,
Highlands County may be one
of the best areas in the country
to reside. Ritter has admired
the handsome exterior works
in the area and noticed the
variations in style.
"There's one specifically in
Avon Park (Sevigny and
Johnson Eye Care) with Babe
Ruth on it. It's an amazing
mural," added Ritter. "I've
gone all over to try and see


CANNED
Continued from ID
other wealthy sportsmen who
buy and fence several hundred
acres. They then stock the
enclosure with big game pur-
chased from breeders.
Not limited entirely to big
game, some such private pre-
serves also cater to bird
hunters and exist for the con-
venience of wealthy hunters.
Private club membership is
limited, through pricey dues.
Vice President Dick Cheney,
along with Texas senator John
Comyn, NFL Hall-of-Famer
Roger Staubach and seven oth-
ers were hunting pheasants at
the exclusive Rolling Rock
Club in Pennsylvania in
December of 2003. At this
canned hunt, it was reported
that Cheney killed 70 pheas-
ants before lunch.
The group shot more than
400 pheasants that day.
Employees of the private club
released pheasants on a hill
above the hunting party, who
were hidden in blinds below
and shot the birds as they flew
overhead.
Those who participate in
such hunts do not practice fair
chase, they are merely buying
the lives of their kill.
After lunch, the group shot
flocks of mallard ducks, which
were reared in pens to be shot
like clay pigeons. Without a
report on the actual count, it's
likely hundreds were killed.
Being an exclusive private
club for the wealthy, Rolling
Rock also has a world-class
golf course for a closed mem-
bership list.
In a canned hunting opera-
tion, fee-paying shooters blast
away at released birds and ani-
mals which often have no rea-
sonable chance of escape. The
bird shooting operations offer
pheasants, quail, partridges and
mallard ducks. The private

what other people are doing."
Using Sherwin-Williams
latex paint and a variety of
brushes, mixing the appropri-
ate colors is a task in and of
itself. Those who have chosen
Ritter for the task are clearly
not worried about the outcome.
They've given him practically
complete artistic license aside
from saving a little space for
advertising.
"It's halfway sacrilegious
for me because I've grown up
on this field," said Ritter in
jest. "When I was kid, we used
to play home run derby and if
we hit it over this wall (when it
was blank) we'd get a pack of
baseball cards. Still, it's kind
of cool to come back years
later and be able to do this."
The 21-year-old artist started
the mural May 25 and. has put
in over 50 hours planning,
sketching and painting.
Michelangelo worked on the
Sistine Chapel for 40 years
without ever really finishing.
Ritter has a more definite
deadline, looking to complete
the project by July 15.


club's employees plant birds in
front of the shooters or toss
them from towers towards
waiting shotguns. There are
probably 3,000 or more such
operations in the United States.
Those who favor canned
hunts will go wherever they
can find the most game and the
biggest game in a way that is
most convenient for them,
regardless of the cost. Canned
hunts defy the work done by
hunters intent on preserving
game on public lands. Now,
state game agencies have
begun awarding hunting per-
-mits to ranchers who auction
them off to the highest bidder.
A survey conducted by out-
door magazine Field & Stream
`found tlat only 12 percent of
readers supported hunting "in
enclosures or fenced-in ranch-
es."
The future of public hunting
looks dire indeed. Maybe we
need another Teddy Roosevelt.
Teddy chose a middle ground
.between traditional hunting
without restriction and the
alternative of private hunting
preserves protected for the
wealthy.
