Navy could



begin live



ordnance



exercises



in 2008

By KEVIN J. SHUT '
News-Sun
AVON PARK The U.S. Navy is expected to
resume live ordnance bombing exercises at the
Avon Park Air Force Range in about two years.
The Navy announced Thuirsdj tir.i ,isianti
Secretary of the Na\) t!nstili[ions and
Environment) B.J. Penn ,i.2ned a Record of
Decision to do so.
"We want to point out that Avon Park is becom-
ing a vital part of Department of Defense training,"
Dick Cutshall, APAFR range operations officer, said
*during a phone interview Friday from his MNI.cDill
Air Force Base office.
Cutshall, a civilian Air Force employee who 'has
been with APAFR for about 20 years, divides his
time between Avon Park and Tampa.
Live ordnance training ceased at Avon Park short-
ly after World War II, when the use of B-17s:
decreased.
,According to Boeing, which manufactured the B-
17 "Fl, ing Fortress," only a few remain.
"Most were scrapped at the end of the war," infor-
mation at Boeing.com said. "Some of the lais Fl\IngE
Fortresses met theirend as target drones in the
1960s destroyed by Bocing ...'ni.ic missiles "
S i\ th ile ci,,ing of Putei .i Rico's Vieques
Bomribin- Range in M a\ 2003. thCl N.e'. inciea:ed
ItS tIse o' Florida rtLtes *
Before the Nji\ be-ins ussing li\c ordnrnce, the
Air Force must issue its own Record of Decision,
which would state that it concurs with the Navy>s
choice of APAFR to augment ranges at Pine Castle
inoirth of Orlando) and Eglin Air Force Base in the
panhandle, Jim Brantley, media relations officer for
U.S. Fleet Forces Command, said Friday.
In addition, the Navy will have to secure funding
and build infrastructure at the Avon Park range -
towers, electronic scoring systems, and targets.
"The' earliest would be the summer 2008,"
Brantley: said, of when systems would be in place
for live ordnance runs.
SA the APAFR becomes an "esncintial"' element in
.the Defense Department's training plan, Cutshall
said the Avon Park economy stands to gain from the
personnel who will come here in various capacities
to support the exercises.
The Navy has already been using the range for
several years for inert target practice.
Whether the Navy will assign any permanent per-
s.onnel.such as a liaison officer, remains to be seen.

News-Sun,
AVON PARK The small
town of Avon Park's proposed
Illegal Immigrant Relief Act
drew the attention of Tampa
Bay news media Thursday.
Reporters wanted to know
what the town folk thought of
the ordinance proposed by
Mayor Tom Macklin. His pro-
posal would crack down on
landlords renting to illegals,
fine employers who employ
them, and make English the
official language of the city.
Macklin told the News-Sun
that first and foremost he
hopes the ordinance will help
to clean up neighborhoods.
"We've had complaints for
years and years about over-
crowding with immigrants,"
he said.
Macklin said efforts .to


enforce zoning regulations
have failed, in part due to the
Highlands County ,Health
Department, which has been
operating by a different set of
rules.
"They issue residential
migrant housing permits for,
five or more residents and.
local 'zoning regulations,
allows four non-related occu-
pants per home,' Macklin
said, calling code enforcement
a nightmare.
After having asked for
changes in the Florida statute-
to help the situation and get-
ting no response, Macklin felt
something needed to be done.
"There have been com-
plaints about 15 people living
in one house with one bath-
room, having to urinate and

New software lightens load, improves safety


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Sheriff Susan
Benton burst with enthusiasm
Thursday as she explained the
new computer software the
office had acquired.
The new software, "Smart
Cop," eliminates an enormous
amount of work, which previ-
ously consumed both time and
money.
Benton said, "Before, from
the time dispatch received an
incoming call to the time of
booking, the same information
had to be entered a minimum of
seven times. Now dispatch puts
in the information at,the begin-
ning and it is never entered
again except for editing."
Bonnie Gregg, director of
911 communications, explained
that when a call comes. in it is
assigned a CAD (computer


aided dispatch) incident num-
ber.
."If you see a suspicious vehi-
cle with a tag number, there is a
field for us to enter that," she
said. "That way when an officer
has to write a report, he can pull
it up and just add the details
without having to re-enter the
data."
Another useful component of
Smart Cop is the Master Name
Index, which provides instant
identification information.
"With the click of, a mouse
you can get all the history on an
individual, including every-
thing from date of birth to war-
rants, arrests and jail history,"
Gregg said.
. Smart Cop also allows dis-
patchers to see what units are
where.
When 911 calls come in, a
map displays where the call


originated and dispatchers can
also view, by color, a list of,
units on the roads, their loca-
tion, the type, and status.
"That way if a unit goes from
busy to available you get a visu-
al on the screen by a change of
color," she said.. "You also
know at a glance how many
there are, what zone they're
covering, and which division
they are with."
Benton said the officers will.
have the software to use in their
patrol cars sometime in the near
future.
"This will allow -them to
spend more time on the road
doing what they need to be
doing and less time doing
paperwork," Gregg said. "They
will be able to put information
in by themselves and pull up.
information right away about a
person or a vehicle instead of


having to call dispatch."
Another benefit for the com-
munity, as well as for law
enforcement officers, is the fact
that response time will be
quicker once the systems are
installed in patrol cars.
"An officer will be able to
see on the map where 911 calls
come from and where the next
call is in his zone. That way, if
he sees that there's, a serious
incident in another zone he can
position himself closer in case
backup is needed. Also, if he
sees that a call on'one end of his
zone is already being attended
to, he can go to the other end to
respond more quickly if a call
comes in from there," Gregg
said.
No shortcuts were taken dur-
ing the process of selecting and
obtaining the shortcut-provid-
ing software.


Gregg said they shopped
around a lot before choosing
Smart Cop.
"Our Information Services
narrowed it down to about three
programs and, each company
gave a presentation. Every divi-
sion attended the presentations
for a couple of days and then we
voted," she said. "It took us
probably six months to select it
and then another couple months
to get everything and comply.
with what we needed."
Gregg said it is as important
to them as it is to the rest of the
public to do what they can to
keep up with the growing call
volume.
"We need to be able to
respond to and take care of
whatever needs to be taken care
of," she said. "This is our coun-
ty too, and we want it to stay,
nice and be safe for everybody."

"A citizen saw something out
of the ordinary 'and called Avon
Park Police," Chess said,
explaining that 35-year-old
Luis Valdes, a Mexican nation,


al who resides in Wauchula,
was found "down the road" in a
shed with a pistol.
Chess wouldn't disclose the
address where Valdes was
apprehended.
Valdes was one of two men
who'allegedly entered the busi-

"No," Chess said, when

Valdes. "He was dropping the
money as he ran."
Keith Chaney, an employee,
was on the shop's porch when a
customer left, saying men
inside had guns.
"It happened so quick," he
said, 30-40 minutes after being
shot at and chasing the. sus-
pects. "We were all waiting to
get paid and go home."

regarding the armed robbery is,

EDITOR'S NOTE


The trip to Sarasota this past
Monday was meant to be the
perfect completion of a greatly
successful Women's Eposium.
The women who made the
trip were treated like royalty by
all involved, and had the oppor-
tunity to meet a few exception-,
al and exciting individuals.
These people inspired us with
shared hopes, dreams, experi-
ences and life lessons. They did
so because they knew they were
among friends, and what was
there, would stay there.


In our zeal to share every-
thing that was felt and
occurred; to help you, the read-
er, 'feel' the powerful emotions
that were felt by all of us that
day, we broke a few confi-
dences, and made some very
regrettable and hurtful com-
ments. To those who were unin-
tentionally hurt and offended
by these comments, we offer
our most sincere and heartfelt
apologies.
The trip was awesome and
greatly appreciated.

Seniors, caregivers vulnerable during OBITUARES


catastrophe; prepare for disaster


Special to the News-Sun
Americans will long remem-
ber the natural disasters that
ravaged the Gulf Coast, but
Mother Nature's fury can strike
anywhere at any time of the
year. Hurricanes, tornadoes,
earthquakes, power outages,
floods and snowstorms are no
respecters of age or economic
status.
And when catastrophe comes
calling, seniors and family care-
givers are among the most vul-
nerable, according to the
American Red Cross and Home
Instead Senior Care, the
nation's largest provider of non-
medical home care and com-
panionship for the elderly. "We
saw firsthand during hurricanes
Katrina and Rita how seniors
could be at greater risk than
other demographic groups,"
said Victoria Melvin,
Preparedness Expert for the
American Red Cross. About
two-thirds (67 percent) of the
623 victims of Hurricane
Katrina identified so far from
the New Orleans area were over
60, according to the Louisiana
Department of Health and
Hospitals. ,
"But it's not just hurricanes.
Natural disasters impact seniors
and their families in various
ways throughout the country
each year," Melvin added."
"At the local level, we know
that a disaster can be deadly for
some seniprs because of physi-
cal and other limitations,"
according to Judy Laws, owner
of the Home Instead Senior
Care office serving Polk and
Highlands counties. "That's
why we're always ready to help,
seniors prepare for any kind of
emergency that could threaten
their health or safety." Home
Instead Senior Care hires non-
medical caregivers who go into
seniors' homes to help keep
them independent as well as
assist them in a time of crisis.
Consider these examples
from across the United States:
-A caregiver in Indiana rode
out a killer tornado with a sen-
'"ibr in her home, comforting her
until the danger passed,
When a massive blizzard hit
Colorado, a caregiver traversed
dangerous streets to make sure
an older adult had everything
she needed to survive.
A Home Instead Senior Care
franchise owner and his care-
giver team canvassed the city
checking on their senior clients
when a blackout shut down
New York City.
During Hurricane Katrina, a
Home Instead caregiver drove a
senior client with Alzheimer's


10 ways to help seniors


prepare for disaster
Follow ing are 10 wa\ s that seniors. their families and care-
givers can prepare for a natural disaster, according to Home
Instead Senior Care and the American Red Cross
Be informed. Contact the local emergence management
office or American Red Cross chapter to learn about the most
likely natural disasters to stnke sour area.
Complete a personal assessment A senior should deter-
mine \\ hat he or she can or can't do before. dunng and after a
disaster. Make a list of those needs and resources that can
meet them. The following Amencan Red Cross publicauons
should help: Prepanng for Disaster for People \% ith Disability
and Other Special Needs A4497), and Disaster Preparedness
for People with Disabilities (A5091 ).
Make a plan. Schedule a family meeting to assess your
needs in an emergency\ and develop a plan of action Include
in your plan key people in your life such as neighbors.
fnends. relau\es and professional caregivers wsho could
help. Remember to include pets in your plan.
Know where to get information during an emergency.
either through the local television, radio or NOAA weather
radio. Have available a batter\-operated radio Different
alarms are available to notify people with medical condition,
of impending disaster, such as a strobe alarm for the hearing-
impaired.
Discuss multiple escape routes. Like all families and
households, seniors should develop at least two escape routes.
one out of their home in case of a fire when they need to get
out of the home quickly and out of the area in case they need
.to evacuate their communmt\. iThe local emergence manage-
ment office can tell you escape routes out of the community
Designate a place to meet other relates or ke\ support net-
work people outside the house, as well as a second location
outside the neighborhood, such as a school or church. Practice
the plan at least twice a \ear.
Know when to 2o or to slay and howa to make the deci-
sion to slay or leae. When deciding to e, acuate. older adults
should go sooner rather than later. BN waiting too long, they
may be unable to leave if they require assistance from others.
Assemble a disaster supplies kit. Ha\e an eass-to-carrt
kit with three days non-perishable food and water with an

disease with the permission
of the client's family to
Georgia for two weeks to
escape the onslaught of the
storm.
Long-distance family care-
givers, whose loved ones live
hundreds of miles away, may be


at a particular disadvantage
when it comes to preparing
their seniors for disaster and
being there to help, Laws
added. That's when a profes-
sional caregiver can be particu-
larly crucial. "Regardless of
whether they have family close


by or not, seniors and their care-
givers are at increased risk in a
disaster if they have not made a
plan," Melvin said.
In a Kaiser Foundation
Family Poll, conducted in
September 2005 at the
Astrodome and other large
facilities in Houston after
Hurricane Katrina, nearly half
of those surveyed (45 percent)
said they did not leave New
Orleans because they were
physically unable to go or they
were caring for someone who
couldn't leave.
"We believe that seniors
were most affected during the
storm," Melvin said. "Census
2000 figures indicate that
before the hurricane, 54,000
people in the city of New
Orleans self-reported having a.
long-lasting condition that
made dressing, bathing and get-
ting around their home difficult
and those individuals are often
seniors," she said.
"More than 107,800 said that
they had a condition that sub-
stantially limited basic physical
activities such as walking,
climbing stairs, reaching, lifting
or carrying. The hurricanes
were a stark reminder of the toll
that disasters can take on unpre-
pared seniors."
Advance preparation is a key
to ensuring that local seniors
are ready for the unexpected.
"The best protection for seniors
and caregivers is to take action
now to prepare for an emer-
gency and make a plan of action
long before any emergency
arises," Melvin said.
Family caregivers.play a crit-
Sical role in this process, said
Laws. "The main thing for sen-
iors and families to do right
away is assess what the senior
would need in the event of a
disaster. If someone, requires
additional assistance they
should identify a team a per-
sonal support network such
as neighbors, relatives and
friends,. who will help.
.',Seniors, their family and care-
gik ers should organize that plan
around every place they might
be during the day or the week,
such as a library or community
center," she noted.
Communication after a disas-
ter strikes should be a vital
component of such a plan. "The
local telephone lines often are
overloaded in a disaster,"
Melvin said, "but long-distance
lines may be working. Seniors
should always have an out-of-
town contact number available
to call after a disaster to let
someone know they are OK."

Gallagher releases annual Top 10 Fraud List


2005-2006 Top 10
cases add up to nearly
$15 million in losses
Special to the News-Sun
Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, has
released the Department of
Financial Services' annual Top
10 Fraud List summarizing 10
of the costliest or boldest secu-
rities, financial and insurance
fraud scams investigated by the
department's Division of
Insurance Fraud (DIF) and
resulting in convictions in the
fiscal year that began July 1.
2005, and ends June 30. These
10 cases represent nearly $15
million in fraud.
"The department is commit-
ted to tracking down and root-
ing out fraud to protect the citi-
zens of Florida," said
Gallagher. who oversees the
department and the DIF. "We
are proud that our enforcement
efforts have led to lower auto
and workers' compensation pre-
miums, as well as higher rates
of incarceration and we will
continue to aggressively pursue
these criminals."
During the past year, the
department's fraud division has
made more than 740 arrests and
won more than 560 convictions.
Convictions are up 70 percent
over the previous year and jail
time is up. more than 25 percent.
Gallagher said that is due to
hard-hitting investigations,
stronger penalties and two pros-
ecutors dedicated to auto insur-
ance fraud.
The top 10 fraud cases show
fraud is not only costly but also
dangerous. In one case, six peo-
ple died as a result of an
Appalachicola doctor over-pre-
scribing pain medications and
in another case, post-hurricane
construction workers were put
to work without workers' com-
pensation coverage. In other
cases, disabled and elderly citi-
zens were exploited. The
department offers up to $25,000
for information that directly
leads to an arrest or conviction
in a fraud scheme.
The "department .also con-
ducts public education cam-
paigns, including "Verify
Before You Buy," that have
been used as models by other
states. By logging on to
www.fldfs.com, consumers can
verify state licensure of an
agent, broker.or company; file a
complaint; read brochures on
various topics from life insur-
ance to viaticals; sign up for the
CFO's weekly consumer
newsletter eViews and get
answers to financial questions
based on their specific needs at
either the Senior Resource
Center or Your Money, Your
Life.,Those without access to a
computer can utilize the same
services by calling the depart-
ment's toll-free consumer'
helpline at (800) 342-2762.
The release of the annual Top


10 Fraud List follows the 15th
annual Florida Insurance Fraud
Education Council Conference
(FIFEC) held last week in
Orlando. The department is a
member of FIFEC and helped
host the three-day event for
hundreds of insurance fraud,
investigators and prosecutors.
During the conference, DIF
Detective Michael Byrne was
named FIFEC Investigator of
the Year.
The Department of Financial
Services, Division of Insurance
Fraud, investigate fraud in all
types of insurance, including
health, life, auto, property and
workers compensation. To
report information about this
case or any other possible insur-
ance fraud case, call the depart-
ment's Fraud Fighters hotline at
(800) 378-0445.
As a statewide elected officer
of the Florida Cabinet, Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher oversees the
Department of Financial
Services,' a multi-division state
agency responsible for manage-,
ment of state funds and
unclaimed property, assisting
consumers who request infor-
mation and help related to
financial services and. investi-
gating financial fraud,
Gallagher also serves as the
State Fire Marshal.
- The department's 2005-2006
Top 10 Fraud List follows:
First Do No Harm
Dr. Thomas Merrill of
Magnolia Medical Clinic in
Appalachicola was convicted in.
January of 98 felony counts
stemming from his over-pre-
scribing of controlled .sub-
stances to patients, six of whom
died of drug overdoses. Merrill
was found guilty of 18 counts
of wire fraud, five counts of
defrauding health care benefit
programs including two
counts that charged that death
resulted from the violation -
and 75 counts of dispensing or
distributing controlled' sub-
stances including four
counts that charged the deaths
resulted from the use of drugs
distributed by the defendant.
Sentencing is pending, but
Merrill could be ordered to pay
:more than $1.5 million in resti-
tution.
Classic Ponzi Scheme
Two Palm Beach County
men were each sentenced to 25
years in prison after they plead-
ed guilty to what detectives
called a classic Ponzi scheme.
Thomas A. Masciarelli, 48, of
Palm Beach Gardens, and
Steven P. Petrarca, 55, of Lake
Worth, each pleaded guilty this
past March to racketeering
(first-degree felony) and in May
the two were sentenced for
defrauding more than 30
investors in Florida and Rhode
Island. Masciarelli and Petrarca
convinced investors to invest in
American Real Estate Investors
Inc., a company that purported


to invest in local real estate.
Investors were promised a
return of up to 9 percent. The
investigation found that
Masciarelli and Petrarca never
invested the money as promised
and instead diverted $1.2 mil-
lion for their own use.
Preying on the Elderly
A former insurance agent
who organized an elaborate
bait-and-switch scheme that
systematically defrauded more
than 1,200 South Florida sen-
iors will spend 30 months in
prison. At his January sentenc-
ing. Brian Lee Shechtman, of
SHollywood, was also sentenced
to 15 years probation and was
ordered to pay more than $1.4
million in restitution. Shecht-
man's scheme targeted senior
citizens between the ages of'75
and 94 to switch their health
insurance to lower-cost poli-
cies, over-billed them and then
applied the money to additional
life insurance policies without
the victims' knowledge. There
were multiple schemes at play
and several of .the victims had
to dip into their life savings to
pay medical bills that they
thought were covered. .Some
lost their homes. Two of
Shectman's cousins were also
ordered to spend time in prison
for their les in ih, scheme.
Empty Promises
Two men who sold empty
promises and bogus health
insurance plans to tens of thou-
sands of people in Florida and,
43 other states can be assured
themselves of one thing -- they
will spend time in prison. The
principals of TRG. Marketing.
LLC Carmelo Zanfei and
William Paul Crouse were
sentenced last August to two
years and four c, .ar in prison,
respectively. Zanfei and Crouse
marketed a bogus health plan,
claiming that the self-insured
plan was exempt from the
licensing- and certification
requirements of state law. The
health plan -was insufficiently
funded and failed to pay m41l-
lions of dollars of claims,
resulting in financial devasta-
:tion ;for ;the customers who
believed they had valid health
insurance. In addition to their
prison -sentences, Zanfei and
Crouse were ordered to serve
20 years probation and to.joint-
ly pay restitution of nearly $3
million and investigative costs.
A Friend Indeed
Charles "Gary" Cowden, of
Sanford, is facing six to eight
years in prison plenty of
time to think about how he
bilked a friend and several oth-
ers out of more than $1 million.
The investigation began in early'
2005 when the. department
received an. allegation that he
sold fictitious annuities, valued
at $50,000, to a friend. Cowden
was arrested fot grand ihefti and
a search warrant was executed
at his home office. As a result of -
.that search, he was charged


with an additional count of
grand theft and uttering a forged
instrument stemming from the
discovery that Cowden had sold
other fictitious annuities in
excess of $1 million. Cowden
pleaded guilty to numerous
felony charges and will be sen-
tenced in July.
Sing it from the
Rooftop
A Louisiana roofing contrac-
tor who came to Florida to prof-
it from hurricane-damaged
homes in Central Florida didn't.
do himself or his workers any
favors. Todd Woods, owner of
A-1 Construction, presented
certificates of liability insur-
ance to a local roofing contrac-
tor, the city of St. Cloud and
Osceola County, but when it
was discovered the coverage
was valid only in Louisiana.
Woods leased five employees,
- including himself through
two employees leasing compa-
nies.
Trust Fund Tackle
Her boss trusted her with his
mail, phone calls and business
accounts, but clearly shouldn't
have. Louanne Hickey used her
access to steal 'more than
$140,000 from accounts and
intercepted mail, teicplhoinc
calls, notices and information
from banks intended to notify
her boss John Galletta Jr., an
attorney in St. Johns County, of
the matter.
A 'Churning'
Sensation
Tampa Insuranrce Agent
Herman Roger Letch\.ortlh III
"churned" up a big mess for
himself. Churninie. -the indus-
try term for an agent ui' or
creating a new policy only to
earn the commission.
Letchworth churned, up thou-
sands of dollars in fraudulent
commissions forhimself by pil-
fering money from existing cus-
tomers' 'policy premiums and
falsifying life insurance appli-
cations for nearly 60 customers
in Pinellas and Hillsborough
counties.
A Cash Infusion


DIF Detective James Kappel
received a tip that Michael
Andre Griffin of Tampa. was
approaching patients at St.
Anthony's Outpatient Clinic
and offering $100 a week and
grocery coupons to seek HIV
infusion treatment at North
Tampa Medical Center- Kappel
went to the clinic and was
approached by Griffin, who
offered the detective $100 a
week and a $50 Kash and Karry
credit card if he agreed to get
the treatments. Later, in a tele-
phone call, both Kappel and
DIF detective John Womer
were solicited to get the treat-
ments and a $30 massage three
times a week was added to the
offer. Using a DIF vehicle
equipped with audio and video
recording devices, the detec-.
tives met with Griffin and were
again solicited. Last October,
Griffin pleaded guilty to patient
brokering and was sentenced to
151 days in county jail. Griffin
provided information that lead
to additional arrests by the
Federal Bureau of
Investigations and the Federal
Department of Health and
Human Services for $6 million
in fraudulent Medicare and
insurance billings.

to create driver licenses for
impostors to present at area
climes for treatment of alleged
injuries from auto crashes. The
crashes occurred on paper only
and the ringleader was paid
cash by several personal injury
clinics for "patients." The insur-
ance companies quickly learned
that there had been no real
crashes involving their insureds
and no payments were made.
Ultimately, the clinics were also
being bamboozled since they
would not have paid in advance
for these imposters if they were
hot going to be able to collect
from the insurance companies.
In effect, the ring was only
interested in pocketing the bro-
kering fees for the impostor
patients, knowing full-well that
follow up visits could never
occur, since the patients were
imposters. A sales associate at
the auto lot suspected to be the
conduit for the stolen identities
was arrested on unrelated
charges of transacting insurance
without a license and posses-
sion of cocaine. As a result of
this investigation, 14 individu-
als have been arrested and 12
have pleaded guilty. Detective
Jerry Brown was the lead inves-
tigator.

Thor Log: Jagged rocks, slippery snow and slow going


Each week, the News-Sun -
will reprint a log by Thor
Knutson, hiking the Pacific
Crest Trail from Mexico to
Canada. Readers can follow
Thor's hike online with maps,
photos and video at
www.thorhike.com.
June 18-19
No bus Sunday and a long
way back to the trail, so we
stayed over. Found someone
with a small pickup to give us a
ride Monday.
It took two trips to get us and
our gear to the parking lot at
Onion Valley Camp Ground. By
the time everyone arrived, it
was 5:30 p.m. Facing a steep
9.7-mile hike to the trail, Barns,
Janetor, Krispie, and I spent the
night to climb tomorrow.
Tuesday, June 20
The hike up Kersage Pass,
with full food pack, was long
and 'tiring. We called it a day
and camped beside Bull Frog
Lake frozen when we went
to Independence, but now most-
ly melted.
We decided to try fishing: Me
with a hook and line, no pole;
Krispie with a reel on a hiking
pole. The fish must have really
been starving. We caught about
14. Cooked some of them on a
stick over the fire. With a piece
of foil and some olive oil, we
cooked a few more in the coals.
A beautiful location a val-
ley with a lake surrounded by


high mountains good com-
pany, food and a fire.

Hiked over Glenny Pass,
with two miles of soft deep
snow, very-steep sides with long
drop to the valley. The most dif-
ficult so far. Slow going.
We camped by a swinging
bridge across a river with white
water. At least there is a bridge.
Snow is patchy here. Nothing
green showing yet. I never
knew we had these kinds of
mountains in the United States:
High with jagged edges and
'unbelievably spectacular.
There are no words to describe
them. You would have to see
them to understand.
We met "Crazy Horse" from
Virginia sporting dread locks
below his waist. He hiked the
Appalachian Trail last year.
Thursday, June 22
Crossed Pinchot Pass at
12,130 feet. It was heavy snow,
but I could slide down the ice
on the other side for about 500
feet.
The south fork of the King
River had large rapids: Fast and
deep. We hiked about 2.5 miles
up river to find a better cross-
ing. Still, freezing cold snow
melt water touched the bottom
of my backpack. I wore a pair
of sandals I bought in town for
crossing rivers. They kept my
boots dry and my feet from get-
ting cut on rocks.


Friday, June 23
Crossed Mather Pass at
12,100 feet. It was very steep
and narrow with heavy melting
snow cover making the rocks
slippery. Slow going. Had to
make sure one foot was holding
before moving the other one.
We reached Deer Meadow
before stopping for the night.
Saturday, June 24
Today was Muir Pass. Muir
Trail has combined with the
Pacific Crest Trail for several
days. The approach, ascent and
descent to Muir pass were one
large snowfield.
We spent the night on top of
the pass, in a stone hut. Not sure
if we were supposed to use it,
but it was there and too tempt-
ing to pass up.
We only covered 14 miles
today. We left Janetor and
Krispie behind. Bams, Crazy
Horse and I plan to pick up sup-
plies at Vermillion Valley
Resort and they don't. They
will hike slower,'but we will all
meet after Vermillion.
Sunday, June 25
From the hut, we had five
miles of snow to Evolution


Creek. Hiked upstream for a
crossing. Water still up to my
backpack.
Found some wild onions
growing along the creek. Picked
them to make onion soup with
my noodles for dinner.
It rained for about half an
,hour, enough to get everyone
wet.
Mosquitoes have been bad
for the past two days. Deet
helps, but they are a real pest.
We saw three deer today.
They came within 10 feet of us.'
Didn't seem to have any fear of
people. Haven't seen any bear
since entering the Sierras.
Hiked 20 miles before find-
ing a place to camp. It wasn't a
very good one, but too tired to
go further.
Monday, June 26
Hiked another 20 miles to the
boat dock to Vermillion Valley
Resort. The last boat went at
4:45 p.m. and it was 9 p.m.
before we got there. There was
less snow today and easier
walking.
Saw a small animal, called
"pika,"I think,,licking the han-
dle of my hiking pole for salt.
I'm sure he found plenty with,


all the sweating I've done in the
past weeks.
More rain and mosquitoes.
Almost out of food. One break-
fast bar and a package of noo-
dles. Looking forward to the
boat at 9:45 a.m. Used the cell
phone to touch base with par-
. ents.
Tuesday, June 27
Arrived by boat to Vermillion
Valley Resort, on an Alpine lake
about the size of Lake Jackson.
It's considered one of the most
beautiful wilderness resorts in
the high Sierras. They have a
restaurant, grocery store, rustic
motel and tent cabins.
The first place I headed was
the restaurant for breakfast:
Eggs, steak, biscuits and gravy.
For lunch I had my first ever
fish taco. Either it was really
good or I was very hungry.
Picked up my food shipment
and- new pants and shirt.
The clothes I'started with were
in really bad shape. I'll spend
the night here and move on
tomorrow. They let us use a
four-cot tent cabin for the night.
Rain again : this evening.
.They say it rains almost every
afternoon. Lishmrning is a prob-


lem when you are high and in
the open with no cover.
Wednesday, June 28
After the thunderstorm
passed, a guest built a fire and
we all sat around drinking a few
cool ones and swapping stories
until late. The cook from the
restaurant had a few too many
and was sick, but recovered
enough to cook breakfast.
I think we all woke at the
same time. A huge clap of thun-
der vibrated across the valley
followed by a downpour, which
lasted most of the morning. We
took the afternoon boat rather
than start hiking in the rain.
My food bill for the short
stay was $130, including a not-
so-good hamburger at $10.
Crazy Horse decided to stay
a little longer. Barns and I,
along with 14 others, crossed on
the 4:30 p.m. boat. We'll only
hike to the first river crossing.
Were told the water level would
go down over night.
It's a 29-mile hike to the road
into Mammoth. I think most of
us will go there. A dry room
(not a tent) for a day or two
would be good. We should meet
Janetor and Krispie there.

Red Cross deploys to


flood victims in New York


Special to the News-Sun
The American Red Cross has
deployed local volunteers to
help run shelters in the flooded
areas of New York.
Intense rain over four days
drenched the eastern coast from
Virginia to New England, and
residents are now dealing with
dangerous flooding. Thirty-
eight American Red Cross shel-
ters have opened in New York
to deal with the 13 counties
affected. Additional shelters
remain on-standby if flooding,
conditions worsen.
Evacuations continue as ris-


ing waters and the floods in,
New York, New Jersey and
Pennsylvania have forced many
families to leave their homes.
The American Red Cross is
also recruiting volunteers for
training for future disasters.

Brantley said the Air Force and
Navy eventually will issue a
Memorandum of Understand-
ing, in which the branches will
delineate what they need and
who will fill those needs.
Such a memo would address
particulars such as staffing
requirements.
The Navy will hold three
exercises at APAFR each year,
with as many as six possible
according to operational needs
of the military.
The exercises are 20 days
long, Brantley said, explaining
that consists of 10 days of fly-
ing and bombing, seven days

defecate outside," he said.
"From a housing perspective
we want to make it difficult for,
illegals to find housing within
the city. If landlords can't rent
to them, they'll have to find
housing elsewhere."
Macklin stressed that he is
not singling out Hispanics, say-
ing that the ordinance would
apply to all illegal immigrants.
"Just last week they arrested
seven alleged terrorists in
southwest Florida and they
already know one was an illegal
from Haiti," he said. "It disap-
points me that people are trying
to make this an English,
Spanish, Mexican thing. It's
not."
To those who argue that we
already have federal immigra-
tion laws in place, Macklin
said, "I don't see federal mar-
shals running around enforcing
laws. Everything starts from the
bottom locally and works its
way to the top. We have to be
able to enforce things our-
selves."
Of those residents polled by
the News-Sun, the vote was
split.
Warren 'Alex' Jobes said,
"I'm for the ordinance because
I think that people should be


for cleaning the range and re-
filling crates, and a three-day
buffer-for contingencies.
Brantley said the exercises
will originate from carriers in
the Gulf of Mexico or the
Atlantic Ocean, where sailors
build and mount the bombs to
the jets and missions are gener-
ated, implemented and man-
aged.
The F-18 Hornet will be the
primary platform from which
bombs will be released.
Cutshall said the bombs fall
into three categories the
MK82 at 500 pounds, the
MK83 at 1,000 pounds, and the
MK84 at 2,000 pounds.
The weights indicate the
munitions' overall weight, not


fined for* i
housing or
employing ..
them. I'm .'I
not against t
them being
here, but
want them
to beJegal. I
don't think JOBES
they should
have any
special dis-
pensation.
They need
to learn our
language
too. If we .K ,
go to
France or ,
England,
we don't DANIEL
expect them
to learn our
language."
Bonnie Daniel agreed, "I
believe that if illegals come to
Florida or the United States,
they need to speak English and
pay taxes. We have rights and
pay taxes, and they should pay
the same price for the same
rights as we've been paying for
years."
Others, however, weren't in
favor of the ordinance.
Lucio Anaya, owner of
Anaya's Produce, said, "I think
the ordinance is bad for me.
This county has temporary resi-
dents; when they leave, my


the amount of explosive in the
warhead, he said.
"That's the big change,"
Cutshall said of the Navy's live
bombs, adding that the Avon
Park-based Florida Army
National Guard's Multiple
Launch Rocket System battery
has been firing live ordnance
for many years.
The Air Force will not bomb
here, he said, explaining that it
chose to use its ranges further
west, in and around California.
"The community support that
we get is very, very important,"
Cutshall said. "It's important to
the military leaders who pick
where they are going to operate.
For the most part, this is
America's military."

NEW King said,
"Nobody

ers' situations and why they
came here. They may have
come to get their, lives together,

before you penalize them."
There are still others who are
not sure what to think about the
ordinance.
Joyce New said, "I feel very
sorry for those that come and
don't have legal status. But I
don't know what the solution
would be."
The second reading of the
proposed ordinance will be at
the next council meeting at 6
p.m. Monday, July 10.


ROD details decision to bomb


Live ordnance
exercises to return to
APAFR
By KEVIN J. SHUTr
News-Sun
AVON PARK The bomb-
ing range at Avon Park was
selected from nine candidates to
serve "all components" of the
Navy's air-to-ground training.
Avon Park Air Force Range's
selection was announced
Thursday with the release of the
Record of Decision signed by
the Navy on June 21.
The Navy's Record of
Decision is a 35-page document
that is a tab to a larger docu-
ment. The ROD is signed by
B.J. Penn, assistant secretary of
the Navy for installation and
environment.
Distance between carrier
strike groups and ranges, range
dimensions and airspace were
the three parameters the Navy
used in determining how best to
meet the needs of its Fleet
Readiness Training Plan.
"APAFR -was the only range
that met all three parameters,"
Penn said in the document, not-
ing that other options were
explored employing models
and simulators, building a new
range and using inert or practice
rounds only. "These options did
not "meet the purpose and need
of the aircrew training enhance-
ment objectives because they
do not create the same high-
stress training environment
and/or emotional conditioning
required for combat deploy-
ment overseas."
With the selection of Avon
Park, the Navy analyzed six
training alternatives with
APAFR.
"Each of the six alternatives
provided a different mix in the
use of proposed HE targets on
Foxtrot, Echo, Alpha and Alpha
Plus (ranges)," Penn said.
These uses include the con-
tinued use of inert rounds on
some ranges and non-bombing
maneuvers such as search-and-
rescue.
Having considered its


options, which included not
expanding the Navy's use of
APAFR for high explosive
bombing runs, the Navy chose
to use the Alpha Plus target
placement area for live ord-
nance exercises.
The 1,162 acres of the Alpha
Plus range are in the center of
APAFR, which "reduces the
effect of training on the natural
and human environment, both
on and off the base" according
to the ROD.
In making its decision, the
Navy addressed airspace, noise,
range safety, soil, water, air
quality, land use, recreation,
wildlife, socioeconomics, cul-
ture, hazardous waste manage-
ment and military activities.
"Based on a review of the
impacts, there will not be any
disproportionately high or
adverse impact on minority or
low-income populations," Penn
said, noting that the greatest
impact to people will be in the
form of noise, safety, land use
and recreation.
The ,document lists two
plants that would be adversely


affected by high explosives -
hairy jointweed and pigeon
wing, federally listed as endan-
gered and threatened, respec-
tively.
Twelve animal species that
dwell or have been known to .
occur at APAFR are on the fed-
eral endangered or threatened
species list but the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service said the
Navy's decision to bomb here
would have "no effect" on the
Everglade snail kite, the sand
skink, the bluetail mole skink
and the Highlands tiger beetle.
Likewise, bombing here "may
affect, but is not likely to
adversely affect" the red-cock-'
aded woodpecker, the wood-
stork, Audubon's crested
caracara, the bald eagle and the
Florida panther.
The ROD includes several
mitigation measures to monitor
and address the various areas of
impact.
Jim Brantley, media relations
officer for the U.S. Fleet Forces
Command, said the Navy is still
about two years away from
dropping live bombs at APAFR.


What to expect

What to expect when bombing resumes at the
range, situated in the northeast corner of Highlands
County:
The Alpha Impact Range will be the location for a
high percentage of live ordinance exercises.
88 percent of sorties (including bombing missions)
will occur between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.
Six major Navy exercises, lasting from one to two
weeks, will occur annually. The Navy will use the range
as a part of its COMPUEX pre-deployment unit
exercises used' to certify crews. That time period.
includes time for advance parties to set up and 'exit
crews to cleanup. Sorties will not fly for the duration of
a two-week period.
From 762 to 1,497 MK80 Series bombs (MK81 are
Navy 1,000 pound bombs, MK 82 and 84 are Air Force
.500 and 2,000 pound bombs, respectively). The
bombs can be designated GBU (Guided.Bomb Units)
/if tail fins and nose guidance systems are put on.
The next step before bombing resumes at the
range is the completion of Pentagon-level paperwork
that define support roles between the Air Force and
Navy,


CHECK
Continued from 1A
FedEx.com," he said, "which
doesn't mean that we get the
package and then ship .it
overnight. It looks like this time
it took about a month."
Demaree also said that they
had been contacted by Barbara
Waters at the Avon Park
Wachovia Bank.
"It appears there is an inves-
tigation and that people are
looking into it," he said.
On his end, Demaree could
see that the package had first
gotten into FedEx's hands in
Jackson, Tenn., and was then
forwarded to Memphis on June
14 and finally delivered to Gill


on June 15.
"There's a problem with the
situation because they shipped
about 65 packages out of that
location in Jackson on June
14," he said. "But we don't look
inside packages, we just ship
them."
Gill called the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office on
Thursday, and Lt. Jess Purvis
said Friday that a report had
been made and that the matter
forwarded to the Criminal
Investigations Division who
will be looking into the forgery
part of it.
Friday Gill asked for a copy
of the check. He said Waters
couldn't give him a copy of it
and didn't know where the
check was at the time.
Gill is frustrated because,


although he knows it isn't the
bank's fault that the check was
bogus, he now can't access his
money.
"The bank said they have
frozen my account in lieu of
what I may or may not owe
them. But I, can't set up a pay-
ment plan because they told me
I don't owe them any money
yet," he said. "I.can't pay my
rent, buy food, or anything
because I can't access my

Gill's mind is whirling with
unanswered questions.
"Who sent it? Why did he
send it to me? Where did he get
my information? How did he
make the check so official look-

I'd like to have answered," he
said.

TOFFIN' IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


A classic
I once dreamed of becoming
a mechanic.
I even tried to make it hap-
pen.
I attended Miami Lakes
Technical Education School in
Miami Lakes and studied how
to maintain and repair out-
board motor engines.
I wanted to work with boats.
So I got job in the parts
department of a marina and
prepared for an opportunity to
be promoted to mechanic.
Here is why I am not a
mechanic today.
At the time, my wife and I
owned a battered 63
Volkswagen Beetle. The king-
pins in the wheel assembly had
gone bad. My wife suggested I
save us money and change.out
the kingpins myself.
I bought all the parts I need-
ed, including a Chilton's man-
ual and went to a rent-a-bay. It
took me most of a morning but
I got the job done with no
pieces left over.
I was a proud and happy
camper.
Then, about six weeks later,
the car developed brake prob-
lems %i.I\ beyond my ability to
even think I could-fix them. I
took the car to the local V\\
specialist.:.
He called me in only a hour.
'Who have you been taking
this car to?" he asked.
"Why?"

Glisson Animal Supply gets Purina Mills award


Courtesy photo
Jimmy Sims, the new service manager at GHC Motorsports in Lake Placid, sits on one of the
stores motorcycles. Sims comes to GHC Motorsports from Davie in March with 12 years of auto-
motive technical and modification experience. Every bike that comes in is worked.on with preci-
sion and respect. The service department is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through
Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3:30'p.m. Saturday.To make an appointment, call 699-2453.


SEBRING Glisson Animal Supply has been
recognized by Purina Mills as a 2005 Top Hand
winner.
The dealership was recognized for the leader-
ship it provides to local cattle producers and for
recording large sales growth in Purina's exclusive
IM Technology cattle feed product line. The deal-
ership was selected from among hundreds of
Purina Mills dealers nationwide participating in
Purina Mills' 2005 Cattle Drive sales promotion
program.
Glisson Animal Supply will be presented with
a western art sculpture trophy and will receive
recognition in Purina Mills Publications.
Craig Cannady, manager at Glisson Animal
Supply, said that differentiating themselves from
the competition aided the dealership's success in
the program.
"This was something new in our area that
never existed before," Cannady said. "We found
that once we got rolling in the program, every-
thing fell into place.'We targeted our prospects
and then word began to spread. Now we have
someone calling everyday about the products."
Glisson Animal Supply received the award as
a result of its efforts to successfully bring Intake
Modifyinfg Technology to its market through pro-
grams like Sup-R-Lix, Accuration/Cattle Limiter,
IMPACT and Sup-R-Block. Research of intake
modifiers in the products shows that the cattle
only consume the amount of supplemental feed


that they need depending on the quality of the
forage they have available. This assures that the
cattle meet their nutritional needs, but the cattle
producer doesn't spend any more than necessary
for supplemental feed.
Cannady participated in specialized training at
Purina Mills' 1,200-acre LongView Animal
Nutrition Center, near St. Louis, as well as local
educational conferences to help his producers
keep records and track animal performance that
demonstrates the value of their new feeding and
management programs.
Purina's IM Technology controls what cattle
consume and how often they forage. Bulls and
heifers fed on the program develop efficient bone
and muscle growth without becoming excessive-
ly fat, which helps the producer achieve perform-
ance and economic goals. Breeding bulls devel-
oped and conditioned 'on IM Technology pro-
grams experienced improved breeding aggres-
siveness and reduced problems associated with
digestive upsets.
Purina Mills manufactures and distributes
nutritional products for commercial and compan-
ion animals nationwide. Purina Mills is permitted
under a license agreement from Nestle Purina
Petcare Company, to use the trademarks "Purina"
and the nine-squared Checkerboard logo. Purina
Mills is not affiliated with Nestle Purina Petcare
Company, which distributes Purina Dog Chow
and Purina Cat Chow brand pet foods.


CLASSIC
Continued from 11A
"The kingpins were put in
upside down," he said.
"Oh. Ooh. Thanks. I won't
go there again."
"Incompetent. Thief. Gives
us all a bad name," the special-
ist had said in disgust, then
remembering, "Do you want
me to fix them?"
"Yes please."
But I had dreamed the great
dream.
Of how eventually, hav-
ing paid my dues I would
own my own business, call my
own shots.
And that the work I would
do would make people happy,
and safer. Work I could look to
at the end of the day, and say,
"I did that." Work I would do
well enough to be respected.
I'd had a dream.
You'll forgive me if I 'vas a
little jealous when I walked
into Classic Car Depot and met
it- >,Miner. Stuart Best.' ,
He is living my dream.,. ...
Best has converted what was
once carpeted space, with an -
interior office, and turned into
an open, every inch useful
automobile shop.
One in which 'he can repair
everything but tires.
Best loves cars.
His dream is to work exclu-
sively on classic cars, but for
now he's happy to work on any
make or model.
He brings his long-legged
Jack Russell terrier with him to
work.


Jackie is laid back for a Jack
Russell and has a taste for rub-
ber shock bushings.
Best is comfortable in his
shop. He is thoughtful, and it
shows in the details.
For example, except for one
counter/cabinet and the car lift,
everything else is on wheels.
The walls of his office are tool
boxes and shelves, which can
be easily moved without any
notice.
And the place is spotless.
This is one of those floors you
can eat off of because it is so
clean.
Like I said I was a little bit
jealous.
Best was working on a 57
Chevy Bel Aire. In fact, it
belongs to his wife Joyce. He
was checking out the wheel
bearings, more proactive main-
tenance than problem solving,
everything seemed to be fine.
Right at the beginning he let
me remove the tire's lug nuts,
-but after that he took over
without seeming to realize he
;had done so.
He worked with the kind of
easy rhythm that is the result of
years of practice. Every move
counts.
The Chevy Bel Aire, which
has become the icon of classic
cars; wasn't as popular in its
own day, Best said.
In 1957, Ford was the popu-
lar car.
Best found it hard to
describe what makes a classic.
Antique is different from
classic, he said. Antique simply
means old. But classic. That's


Christopher Tuffley removes the lug nuts off the car. After that, he just watched at Classic Car Depot in Sebring.


something else.
"In the beginning, a classic
was usually a luxury car, but
that has changed. Now pretty
much any car can become a
classic. But it's usually some-
thing that stands out from the
rest something that touches
the heart."
In other words, a Ford Pinto,
an American Motors Gremlin,


a Chevy Vega any car can
be a classic to someone but
more usually, it's the cars with
personality that usually get
remembered, the cars with
style.
Take the Bel Aire. Best said
its lines were taken from the
F86 fighter jet:
"The headlights are like the
jet engines, there are rockets


on the hood, and the interior is
like a cockpit."
He doesn't hold much hope
for today's car models howev-
er. Too much plastic he said.
Too generic, they all look the
same. Except maybe the new
Pontiac GTO 6.0, V8.
"It's not the everyday car
everybody can drive," is how
he said it.


As for my 1991 Lumina.
"Future classic?" I asked. Best
looked at me with sympathy.
"Is it a van or sedan," he asked
and pause as if he'd said it all.'
Then seeing that I was expect-
ing a serious answer, he added,
"It will be an antique in two
years."
You'll forgive me if I was a
little bit jealous.

Judge throws out confession in Jessica Lunsford case


Associated Press
INVERNESS A convict-
ed sex offender's confession
in the kidnapping, rape and
killing of 9-year-old Jessica
Marie Lunsford can't be used'
in court, a judge ruled Friday,
but prosecutors said they still
have enough evidence to
move forward with the case.
John Evander Couey, 47,
confessed to detectives in
March 2005 and told them


where to find the girl's body
buried in his yard. But he was-
n't allowed to consult a
lawyer, as he repeatedly
requested. His defense argued
that violated his rights, so the
confession and the recovery of
the body shouldn't be admissi-
ble.
Circuit Judge Ric Howard
threw out the confession to
Citrus County sheriffs detec-


tives because they didn't let
him talk to a lawyer, which he
called "a profound violation
of one of the most bedrock
principles of criminal law."
But he said investigators
would have found her body
without the confession, so he
allowed it as evidence.
Howard also allowed two
exchanges in which Couey
seems to admit guilt.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

Explosions of

thanksgiving
Fireworks and patriotic
music what could be bet-
ter?
I love seeing the sky filled
with an extraordinary light
show such as we're privi-
leged to watch during Fourth
of July celebrations. When
just the right music accom-
panies the luminaries, my
heart beats a bit faster and a
sense of national pride wells
up inside. Tears threaten to
spill from my eyes.
This proud moment of
American patriotism
prompts another response,
thanksgiving thanksgiv-
ing for this great country
where we have freedom
unlike any other place on
earth. Thankfulness that we
can worship God as the
Scriptures teach the origi-
nal reason the pilgrims first
came to the American conti-
nent. Thanksgiving for those
who have been willing to
fight for that freedom and
are still doing so
So often the reports on
TV don't tell the whole story
the stor\ of lives being
changed in the countries in
which we still have a pres-
ence. Children, women and
,men now live without the
fear of cruel dictatorship.
Then there's the incredible
awareness that since the hor-
rific attack on our shores on
Sept. 11, 2001, we have
lived in safety as those
we lo% e hal e gone to fight
and keep us safe.
As we stand under the
summer sky watching in fas-
cination as it lights up in
beautiful artisuc explo-
sions. let thanksgiving
explode in our hearts.
There's an old hymn that
sets in motion the counting
of our blessings. Where do
we begin? Anywhere! And
watch %what happens.
Freedom religious,
government, speech, etc.
Personal freedom to
pursue careers, businesses,
home ownership and more
The blessings of sight,
smell, touch, taste, hearing
The beaut.i of nature
and freedom to travel from
state to state and beyond
Family relationships -..
parents, spouses, children,
grandchildren and extended
family
M Friends and the impact
they have on our lives
Health, nutrition, health
care
Abundance of food and
clothing more than we
even need
God has indeed blessed
America and Americans.
Once we begin counting our
blessings, it takes on a life of
its own and keeps multiply-
ing. When we get personal\
specific in counting our
blessings, an explosion of
thankfulness will erupt in
our hearts.
Above all else, thanksgiv-
ing to God should include
his saving grace through
Jesus Christ that he has
extended to each individual
so that we might be his chil-
dren.
"Give thanks to the Lord,
for he is good; his love
endures forever," I
Chronicles 16: 34, NIV.
Much like the explosions
of light in the sky on the
Fourth of July, explosions of
thanksgiving will light up
our attitudes, our counte-
nances and our actions. So
let the fireworks of thanks-
giving begin and watch
them multiply like a grand
finale. Selah.

Horoscope


SECTION C + SUNDAY, JULY 2, 2006


Look up, there's our flag.
We can count every star,
And the red, white and blue
Stripes..
How lovely they are.
Floating high, floating wide,
We can see it from afar,
Our flag, it's ihe flag,
We can count every star.


In the sun, in the wind,
Do its bright colors shine
Oh, look at that flag,
it is yours, it is mine

Remember, that flag flying high
Or laying at rest
Is our symbol of what makes our
Country one of the best.


NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


Honoring the


a'.
L -


* See more about the flag on page 8C.

The flag folding ceremony represents the same reli-
gious principles on which this country was originally
founded.
The portion of the flag denoting honor is the canton
of blue containing the stars representing the states the
veterans served in uniform. The canton field of blue
dresses from left to right and is inverted when draped
as a pall on a casket of a veteran who has served this
country in uniform.
In the Armed Forces of the United States, at the cer-
emony of retreat the flag is lowered, folded in'a trian-
gle fold and kept under watch throughout the night as
a tribute to this nation's honored dead. The next morn-
ing it is brought out and, at the ceremony of reveille,


Flag


run aloft as a symbol of the belief in the resurrection
of the body.
When the flag is completely folded, the stars are
uppermost, reminding people of the national motto,
"In God We Trust."
After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it
takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever remind-
ing people of the soldiers who served under General
George Washington and the sailors and marines who
served under Captain John Paul Jones who were fol-
lowed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed
Forces of the United States, preserving for people the
rights, privileges, and freedoms they enjoy today.

Build character through


books at local libraries


Youth Camp teaches about robots


Both school board
and county employ-
ees in Highlands
County have been
refreshing their mem-
ories and learning
practical guidelines
for living through the
program Character
Counts!, a monthly
themed program that
uses biographies and
other interesting facts
to help us remember
the character trait.
Since this is a nation-


l

a
LIBRARY

Caro
Hesse


wide program, adopted by
many cities, counties, and
school systems, I shouldn't
have been surprised to find its
subject adapted for our Central
Florida Sunday School
Convention. One of the general
seminars had the title "How do
I model character in leader-
ship?"
My notes include some
"don't forget this" ideas that
should be reflected both in and
out of our workplace. Howard
Hendricks, professor and chair-
man of the Center for Christian
Leadership at Dallas
Theological Seminary, is quot- C
ed, "The greatest crisis in the
world today is a crises of lead-
ership, and the greatest crisis in
leadership is a crisis of charac-
ter." Reputation is what you're
supposed to be. Character is
what you are.
I learned that the word char-
acter means to etch or perma-
nently mark over time. Just like
our faces. eventually show our
frown lines, so our character is
the sum total of' our good and
bad qualities, a reflection of
whom we are and what we do.
Building good character is
important because it builds
trust, promotes excellence,
strengthens our relationships,
increases our .influence, gives,
us perseverance, and results in a
clear conscience. Help yourself,
\ our loved ones, and those you
work with, by apple ing ihe
principles you'll learn from-
"The force of character: and the
lasting life," "The book of
virtues: A treasury of great
moral stoiies," "Character is
destiny," "Seeking solid
ground," "Flawless!: Our top
10 character defects and, what
to do about them," and "A call
to character."
More than one will recall
news articles that reflect this
title, "How could you do that?:
The abdication of character,
courage, and conscience."
Perhaps it's because they
haven't had parents who prac-
ticed the steps in "Being your
best: Character building for
kids 7-10" or took to heart "Too
much of a good thing: Raising
children of character in an
indulgent age." Our Heartland
Library Cooperative online cat-
alog shows we own "Books that
build character: A guide to
teaching your child moral val-
ues through stories" and
"Parenting to build character in
your teen."
Were you one of the many
who read "The seven habits of
highly effective people?"
Perhaps you didn't read
"Living the 7 habits: Stories of
courage and inspiration." Three
other titles to consider are
"'Everything to gain: Making
the most of the rest of your
life," "The quest for character"
and "The Ten Commandments:
The significance of God's laws
in everyday life." Here's anoth-


Computer classes

Computer classes are offered

Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee and
Okeechobee counties.
There are two classes avail-
able and are free of cost. There
is a basic and an advanced
computer class, taught by
Gabrielle Turner. To register all
a person needs to do is call the
library of their choice or stop
by the library and let them
know when you Will be able to

er title that is a clas-
sic, "Life's little
instruction book."
Whatever your polit-
ical opinion, a book
well worth perusing
is "When character
was king: A story of
Ronald Reagan."
SLINES Have you ever
repeated one of your
yn children's or grand-
link children's sayings?
..n Some of them end up
in magazines like
"Reader's Digest,"
or in the comics' section of the
newspaper. Here's one that
produced a whole book "If I
get to five: What children teach
us about courage and charac-
ter."
King David's character was
summed up in Psalms 78:72,
"So he led them with integrity
of heart ...." One more gem of
wisdom I thought worth hold-
ing up to the light to enjoy all of
its facets "the measure of
character is what you would do
if no one ever found out."
All Heartland Library

closed Tuesday for the holiday.

Defend back yard from mosquitoes


Tips to help keep

pests away
Mosquitoes can be an annoy-
ing, serious problem in man's
domain throughout Florida.
They, interfere with work and
spoil hours of leisure time.
Their attacks on farm animals
can cause loss of weight and
decreased milk production.
Somite mosquitoes are capable
of transmitting diseases such as
malaria, yellow fever and
dengue to man, encephalitis to
man and horses, and heart
worms to dogs.
One of the easiest ways to
reduce the number of mosqui-
toes in your back yard is, to
"uninvite" them. Here are a few
defensive strategies that will
help keep these unwanted
insects from making them
selves at home.
Eliminate breeding grounds.
Mosquitoes lay eggs in stagnant
water, so make it a high priority

to get rid of theses breeding
grounds. Check items that 'col-
lect water, such as flowerpots,
buckets, gutters, tarps, tires and
kiddy pools. Empty standing


water and store water collectors
in a dry sheltered location. Low
spots in the lawn that puddle
also can be mosquito breeding
grounds. Fill in these areas with
soil.
Change water in birdbaths
twice a week
Keep gutters clean and debris
free
Inspect window- screens.
Mosquitoes can enter your
home through almost any open-
ing, be it a broken window or a
crack below a door. Keep the
insects at bay by making sure
your screens fit well, and fix
damaged ones immediately. A
favorite place for mosquitoes to
congregate is in the coolness of
a garage. Shut the doors to keep
them out.
Yellow light. Light your
deck, patio or porch with yel-
low "bug lights." They don't
attract -nearly the number of
mosquitoes as incandescent
lights. Also, because mosqui-
toes are relatively weak fliers,


setting a large oscillating fan on
the deck or patio may make it
difficult for them to get to you.
Invite predators. When com-
bined with other control meth-
ods, the introduction of mosqui-
to eaters may keep populations
under control. Bats, dragonflies
and goldfish feast on mosqui-
toes. To welcome them to your
yard, put up bat houses, or add
fathead minnows or mosquito
fish.
No doubt about it, humans
are outnumbered by mosquitoes
on a warm summer night. But,
armed with this knowledge for
keeping them away, you now
have a fighting change.
Facts are, mosquitoes will
never be eliminated from our
lives they've been around
for 170 million years.

gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute

Sciences.

Serving Florida guavas and papayas at mealtime


Fresh Florida papayas and
guavas are available all year,
even in the middle of winter.
Serving these fruits makes any
meal or get together more fes-
tive. -
Papaya is a large, pear-
shaped fruit. They are prized
for their silky, buttery-soft flesh
and delicately sweet, musky fla-
vor. The flesh varies in color
from yellow to orange-pink to
rose and is so tender it can be
scooped out and eaten with a
spoon.
When shopping for papayas,
look for fairly large, yellow-
skinned fruit that yields slightly
to gentle palm pressure. Stored
at room temperature, papayas
that are still a little firm and
green will ripen and be ready to
eat in a couple of days. Avoid
papayas that are too soft or
whose skin is bruised or shriv-
eled.
Guavas are small round, oval
or pear-shaped fruits with then
yellow skin that may be blushed
with pink. The flesh may be
white, salmon-colored, or even
rose-red and tastes a little like
strawberries with a hint of
lemon. "The tin rind is fully edi-
ble.
When selecting guavas, look
for fruit hat is free of cuts and
bruises. Ripe guavas emit a
strong, sweet, fruity fragrance,
and the shells will give to a, ern-
tie squeeze. To ripen firmi
guavas, let them sit on the
kitchen counter for a day or
two. Keep in mirid that guavas
are thin-skinned and delicate


and should be han-
dled with care.
Loaded with fiber,
vitamins, minerals, ..
and antioxidants,
papaya is one of the
healthiest fruits you
can eat. It provides
folate, potassium, .
and a whopping 150
percent of your rec- NEWS
ommended daily T
allowance of'vitamin
C. Papaya is filling WATE
without being fatten- -
ing, so it's great for Jennife
pc',ple who are
working to control
their weight: a cup of chopped
fresh papaya has just 55 calo-
ries and it is free of sodium and
cholesterol.
. Guava is packed with fiber,
vitamin A and five times more
vitamin C than is found in an
orange. Guava is one of the few
fruits containing. lycopene, a
potent antioxidant that helps
lower the risk of heart disease
and certain cancers (watermel-
on and tomato are other exam-
ples). A cup of chopped fresh
guava has only 84 calories.
Use the following recipes to
add a taste of paradise to your
life without buying a plane tick-
et.

An inspirational thought
, -",, St. John 15:7. "-If ye abide in
in me, and my words abide in
you, ye shall ask what ve
wil, and it shall be done
. unto you." As we read the
S" waord of God, it is filled wiith
answered prayers from
Genesis to Revelation.
Jeremiah 33:3. will let vyou'
know if we call unto the Lord, He will answer ,
us. The answer we receive may not always bhe
the answer we're expecting. St. John 15.:7
gives is 'two requirements for answi ers to
prayer First. we are to abide in Him: that is,
to continue in Him. It means to remain in
Jesus' perfect will at all cost. Then, His words
will abide in you. That is saying to keep the
tbord of the Lord in .your heart. The ltbrd of
the Lord should be a vital part of our lifestyle
and us. \'e should befidle with and guided byv
the Mwbrd of the ZiJ we meet the two
requirements, the r will come. The
answer is so50imeuimtlediate. Peter
received ant immniet iSit'ier according to
Mattllhew /t,1423-31. 5isi'er is sometimes
delayed. The delay isti 'eVed prayers is

of Lazarus is' a g( mple of a delayed
answer to prayer.: mraged5!

Displaying i
f Because the United States flag is the sym-
bol of this country, it should always be dis-
played in the most prominent, most honored
N, position. No other flag should ever appear
more important.
% A. On awall: When the flag is displayed
on a wall, it should be displayed with the
I.- union uppermost and to the observer's left.
B. In multi-national flag displays: In the
United States, the United States flag is to be
displayed first to "its own right" fol-
lowed by the flags of all other countries (at
equal height and in alphabetical order) to the
left (observer's right) of the United States
S flag.
C. Among subordinate flags: When the
United States flag is among a group of subor-
dinate flags, the United States flag should be
at the center and the highest point the
position of prominence.
D. Displayed from a staff: When dis-
played from a staff, the flag should hold the
position of superior prominence, in advance
of the audience, and to the speaker's right
IL^


lag properly
(facing the audience). If other flags are also
displayed, they should be displayed to the
speaker's left.
E. On a pole: When several flags are
flown from the same pole, the United States
flag should always be at the top except
during church services by naval chaplains at
sea when the church pennant may be flown
above the United States flag on the ship's
mast.
F. On a lapel: When the flag is displayed
as a lapel pin, it should be worn on the left
lapel near the heart.
G. Among peers: When flags from two or
more nations are displayed, the flag code for-
bids the display of any nation's flag in a posi-
tion superior to another in time of peace.
Therefore each flag should be of approxi-
mately equal size and flown at the same
height.

Not the real thing, but

Packard sits in garage


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING -Gary Puckett
said his wife would not let him
buy a Packard auto, so ... he had
one painted on his garage door
instead.
' All his life Puckett has had a
thing for the Packard automo-
bile. "My father drove Packards
as long as I can remember, at
least, until 1953. My favorite
was the 1949/1950 Packard
Custom, the same as I had
painted on my garage door," he
said..
To compliment the Packard,
Puckett painted the garage like
a Texaco Service Station, com-
plete with a pair of authentic
gas pumps.
To. paint the image Puckett
wanted, he, contacted a local
artist who had painted a fantas-
tic Underwater scene on the
wall behind a friend's swim-
ming pool.
"It was so real that I felt I
was under water in a coral reef.
Jay Antablian is an amazing
artist," he said.
Antablian's portfolio
includes some illustrations he
did while working in Asia and
Australia as an illustrator for
advertising agencies.
"For my garage door, I
removed the overhead door and
built a double smooth front
swing out, old stylp garage
door," he said.
Working from an old photo
of Puckett, Antablian painted
the preliminary drawings on
masopite and then mounted it
on the garage door.
.'"He 'used an, old photo of me
when I worked d for -a Texaco
Service station back in 1958 to
place as. the attendant beside the
car..<..-.-....'- -- .-:-- .


A young Gary Puckett has been
painted on the door of Puckett's
garage. Jay Antablian did the
realistic paintings.


"The Packard is so correct so
that you could almost pick the
emblem off the grill. High
lights on, the grill and chrome
are wonderful," Puckett -iaid.
Take a look at the gaidge
from the street and passeri-b\
almost feel the car is read\ 10
drive out of the garage.
Antablian's talent includes a
wonderful ability to capture
animals, dogs and cats and
especially horses.
"After seeing what he did
with my door, I can \ Nisu'aze
others with their forte
motorcycle or antique car. His
talent needs to be ackno \ I-
Sedged." Pucket 'ai.d. ...

The flag and the Fourth


It did not escape
my notice that a
vote on a proposed
Constitutional
amendment to ban


LAURA'S LOOK

flag burning
occurred one week before the
Fourth of July.
In case you missed the news,
the Senate failed to pass the
amendment by one vote. One. I
don't want to hear anyone chat-
ter about how "one vote doesn't
S - matter" after this.
I've been doing a lot of
S. thinking today, about the flag,
those who might want to burn it
in protest or treat it disrespect-
S"fully, and our country. It seems
an appropriate column topic,
S given this week marks the
230th birthday for our country.
We live in a nation that
-- allows people to openly pro-
S claim their disagreement with
the government. I have won-
dered, for example, if Michael
Moore really appreciates the
freedom he enjoys in the USA

Editor:
Every day I delete and block
at least six to seven e-mails that
are selling watches, stocks,
etc., etc. These are all from
people that have entered my e-
mail address into their data
base.
I have never sold on eBay,
yet I continually get e-mails
from people on a screen that
looks like eBay wanting ship-
ping information, to get put on
my eBay mailing list or other
things. I never reply or click on
any of the items on that e- mail.
In checking with eBay, the item
number is not for real and eBay
states that they did not send out
the e-mail.
On the fraud or spam e-mail
there are many active topics
that you can click on like the
item number or the item for
sale ... but you do not want to
click on them as that locks your
e-mail address into their sys-
tem.
Forward the e-mail to
sp6of@ebay.com. They will
always thank you for reporting
the fraud e-mail ... but to be
honest with you, they do noth-
ing about it. The system is not
prosecuting these individuals.
The other day I could not
send out e-mails. I contacted
the help line by instant messag-
ing. I was asked if he could get
into my computer to see what
the problem was and I said yes.
He took over my computer and
controlled my mouse. He
opened up screens, changed
settings, and resolved the prob-
lem.


If they can go in and work
your computer from that end,
so can the people who are
wanting to clean out your bank
account or use your credit card
to buy stuff.
Leaving your computer on.
all the time, as I have been
doing is also a bad thing, as
they can get into your system at
night and you would never
know it. At least I saw what the
help line guy was doing on my.
screen, though I could not have
stopped what he was doing
even if I wanted to, other than
shutting off the machine and by
that time he would have
already installed a command
where by he could access my
computer any time my system
was on.
Not long ago I was selling
my truck and fifth wheel. I still
have a bad check for $25;000
here from a bank in Texas. Had
I gone through with their
scheme, I would have lost my
truck and fifth wheel as well as
$7,000 in cash. Anyone want-
ing more information on how
that scheme is operated, let me
know and I will forward you
the details.
Remember if it sounds too
good to be true, it probably is a
scam. And there is no one out
there giving away prizes and
money.

9/11" but would
have thrown him in
jail to boot.
It isn't right to
claim that our


country doesn't
support free speech. Pick up a
newspaper, turn on a radio, surf
the Web. You will find a great
deal of speech that doesn't sup-
port those in power. Ours is a
nation born of protest, and
protest is allowed to occur.
That brings us to the whole
flag burning issue. There are
few flag burnings by Americans
nowadays. Most of those who
bum the American flag as a
form of protest aren't even
Americans and wouldn't care
about a Constitutional
Amendment.
So what about those who are
Americans and want to show
their contempt for their nation
by burning a flag? Let me talk
to you people for just a sec here.
When you burn a flag in
protest, do you know what you
are burning? OK, this question
is for everyone besides the
smart aleck who replied, "A


Ava


red, white and blue piece of
cloth." Do you know?
You think you are protesting,
the leadership of our country.
But our flag represents far more
than that handful of Americans.
When you look at the flag,
you shouldn't just see the presi-
dent, the Congress, and other
leaders. Look closer. Do you
see?
Do you see the young faces
of soldiers who have paid the
ultimate price not only to
ensure our own freedom's but
the freedoms of others? Do you
see those, that have not been
killed in battle but nevertheless
gave of themselves?
Do you see the teachers that
work to educate the youth that
touch their lives in spite of low
pay and frustrations?
Do you see the policemen,
the firemen, who risk their lives
so, that you can sleep at night?
Do you see your neighbor?
The checkout clerk at your
favorite grocery store? The kid
who rides his bike in front of
your house?
Do you see yourself?

We must fight

for our freedom

Editor:
Reading over an article
appearing, Friday's paper (June-
23), I have a few comments to
make.
The article claimed the ultra
rich do not pay taxes ... You
mean that Senator John Kerry
and his wife Trease and Senator
Edward Kennedy do not pay
any taxes? Is the writer aware
there are more wealthy
Democratic Senators than
Republican Senators?
The writer must consider the
Kennedys as ultra.rich, as that
large family has lived,off their,
father's money making for
many years ...
The writer should look into
how the Kennedy family keeps
their wealth for years after
years and then maybe the
writer can follow the Kennedy
example and come under the
Ultra Wealthy..
If the writer's intent was to
stir up the Democrats to hate
the Republicans, the writer did
a good job, unless those
Democrats out there reading
the article have more knowl-
edge and passes off the
writer's information as propa-
ganda.
In my home town, the prac-
tices of the wealthy, who bank
their money, do not get the
interest but passes that interest
on to legal not-for-profit or
non-profit entities that are for a
good cause ... as no doubt tax
deductions.
Many of those not-for-profit
. or non-profit entities could not
survive with out the wealthy
contributions to help their good
causes.
I am going to write about
something more important then
the writer's article regarding
Haliburton getting billions of


dollars of our ta\ monies. It the
writer would look back, the
writer would find out
'Haliburton has gotten as many
contracts from the Democrats
as Republican administra-
tions.Contracts for our tax
monies are to be given to those
contractors who can do the job
and finish.thejob, and I 'aC the
Democrat and Republican
administration uses good com-
mon sense when giving the
-contracts to those who have
the financial background to
give the taxpayers their
money's worth.
Maybe the writer will take
the time to read some things
that are more important to keep
our country free, than those
where she seemed to find Bush
administration trying to destroy
our country.
Does everyone remember
that the Clinton administration
put our soldiers over in foreign
lands and. under the United
Nations command, which actu-
ally makes our soldiers merce-
naries, and they are still in
those countries years after the
battle is over.
There is a young man who
was a member of our Armed
Services that swore to uphold
the Constitution when he went
into the service to, serve his
country. He was sent over to
one of these foreign countries
and he was court martialed for
refusing to wear the United
Nations mercenaries symbols
dictated by the Clinton admin-
istration not by law.
He has fought 10 years and
has finally got his case in the
U.S. Courts of Appeals and for
the first time his case could be
heard on its merits. Now his
fate will decide the fate of
thousands of U.S. soldiers.
Congressman Ron Paul
introduced the following bill,
which was referred to the
Committee on Armed Services.


of July

When you burn a flag, you
don't just show contempt for
those in power. You show con-
tempt for your fellow
Americans, who like you want
this country to be a good coun-
try. And, if you are an
American, you show contempt.
for yourself as well.
Tuesday is the Fourth of July.
Whatever your political affilia-
tion, take a moment between
your picnics and your fireworks
to contemplate that, whatever
her flaws, our country still has a
lot of good to it, and does a lot
of good for her people and for
others. Our country also is one
of the freest in the world. Here
we can pray or not pray as we
choose, speak our minds or be
silent as we choose, agree or
disagree with our leaders as we
choose.
And if you must protest, can
you pick something else to burn
besides our flag?

Be safe as you celebrate

The annual celebration
of this greai nation's birth
is quickly approaching.
Many of us will be plan-
ning a day fUll of activi- ..
ties. Belfore you start
planning did you know
that July 4 is the second
most deadly holiday peri-
od of the year just
behind New Year's.
In 2004, at least 253
people were killed in 'HO
alcohol-related traffic -
crashes across America
during the Fourth of July
holiday period. Of those,
225- fatalities involved a driver.
motorcycle operator or non occu-
pant with a blood alcohol concentra-
tion (BAC) level of .08 and higher
- the illegal limit in all 50 states,
the District of Columbia and Puerto
Rico. Last year in the state of
Florida, 42 people lost their lives
over the July 4 holiday.
That is why the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office joins with
other national, state and local law
enforcement .and highway safety
officials to work overtime this year
to remind anyone planning to use
alcohol while celebrating
Independence Day that "Buzzed
Driving is Drunk Driving" and to
always, remember to designate a
sober driver before the celebrations
begin:
With nearly half of all traffic
fatalities over the July 4 holiday
being alcohol-related, we are asking
everyone to help us get the word out
that buzzed driving is indeed drunk
driving and that the "just one more
for the road" attitude too often turns
into a disaster without the support of
a sober designated driver.
Too many people still don't
understand that alcohol oi drugs and
driving just don't mix. Impaired
driving is no accident nor is it a
victimless crime. Too many lives are


being lost and we need
everyone's help to stop it.
In fact. drlnk driving
S remains one of America's
S'deadliest problems.
S 1Overall in 2004, more
than 15,000 people died
in highway crashes
involving -a driver or
motorcycle operator with
WAY a BAC of .01 or higher.
Of those, nearly 13,000
.INE were killed in crashes
where the BAC was .08
Wane or higher.
Alcohol plays a major
role in motorcycle fatali-
ties. affecting those skills essential
to operate a motorcycle balance
and coordination. In 2004, 41 per-
cent of the 1,672 motorcycle opera-
tors who died in single-vehicle
,crashes had BAC levels of .08 or
higher. For fatal crashes in the same
year, a higher percentage of motor-
cycle operators had BAC levels of
.08o01 higher than any other type of
driver.
Fortunately, some of the tragedy
from drunk driving can be prevented
with a few -simple precautions
before going out.to celebrate:
Whenever you plan on using
alcohol, designate,your sober driver
before going out and give that per-
son your keys;
I If you're impaired, call a taxi,
call a sober friend or family member
to get you home safely;
M Promptly report drunk drivers
you see on 'the roadways to law
enforcement;
M Wearing your safety belt or
using protective gear on your motor-
cycle is your best defense against an
impaired driver;
While traveling to and from
celebrations on your -motorcycle,
remember to make yourself visible
by riding your motorcycle where
you can be seen to avoid a crash;

Let Friends Drive Drunk. If you
know someone who is about to drive
or ride while impaired, take their
keys and help them make other
arrangements to get to where they
are going safely.
Driving or riding a motorcycle
while impaired is simply not worth
the risk. The consequences are seri-
ous and real. Not only do you risk
killing yourself or someone else, but
the trauma and financial costs of a
crash or an arrest for driving while
impaired can be significant.
Violators often face jail time, the
loss of their driver's license, higher
insurance rates, and dozens of other
unanticipated expenses.
Remember that it isn't just the fire
works that can harm you this holi-
day. Don't let this Fourth of July
blow up in your face. Remember
Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving.
Designate your sober driver before
the celebrations begin.
This is a great nation and a won-
derful community. If you want to
celebrate, please take a few minutes
of your time to plan properly and.
thoroughly. Drive defensively, the
life you save may be. your own or
someone you love. Have a Happy
Fourth of July.

Highlands County i. ,:f's Office.

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
July 1,2001: Avon Park
pitcher John Paul Heston
was awarded News-Sun
player of the year honors.
Heston led the team with
an 8-1 record, a 2.31 ERA
and 53 strikeouts in 632/3
innings. Heston also played
first base when he wasn't
pitching, turning in a .396
average tied for third in
the county and led the
county with 35 RBIs, strik-
ing out only 10 times in
106,at bats.
30 Years Ago
July 1, 1976: Rotary cap-
tured the 1976 Avon Park
Little League championship
with a 2-1 victory over
Bagwell Lumber. The final
win gave Rotary a 12-2
record for first place in the
eight team league and
dropped Bagwell Lumber
to second place with an
1.1-3 mark. Rotary pitcher!
Dwayne Council struck out
11 Bagwell batters and
held them to three hits.
Larry King scored the first
Rotary run in the top of the
first. After Bagwell tied it in
the fifth, Ricky Oates
tripled and scored the win-
ning run on a passed ball.

DixieYouth AAA District 8Tournament


Sebring National holds

off Lake Placid to win

district championship
By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
OKEECHOBEE Lake Placid finally made the
Sebring National All-Stars break a sweat. But they
couldn't make them break their streak.
Lake Placid gave Sebring National its best game
of the Dixie Youth Majors AAA District 8 tourna-
ment Friday night bringing the tying run'to the
plate in the last inning but couldn't hand the
Sebring squad its first loss of the tournament, com-
ing up short in a 6-4 game that gave Sebring
National the district championship.
Sebring National had won its previous five tour-
nament games by an average of over eight runs,,
including a 12-4 win over the same Lake Placid team
two nights earlier.
Friday night was a little different, however, as
Lake Placid gamely fought back from a 4-0 dc-f it to
pull to within one swing of tying the game in its final
at-bat.
"I thought we gave ,them a good run tonight,"
Lake Placid coach D.W. Daum said. "That's the
closest anybody came to them the, whole toturna-
ment. We gave them a scare. We didn't go down,
without a fight."
The good news for Lake Placid is that Friday's
championship game was more for bragging rights
than anything else since both squads had .blediJ%
.Ituahitied for the state tournament in Mulberry.
Sebring National just gets to go into state with a
full head of steam, and they can thank pitcher Dane
Maddox for keeping that momentum.
Maddox went the distance and struck out 11, get-
ting several of those strikeouts when Lake Placid

final batter he faced after giving up a single to Paul
Cantwell, a walk and a two-run double to Tyler
Bertoniere that made it 6-4 in the bottom of the sixth
inning.

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
The Sebring National All-Stars celebrate with their District 8 championship trophies Friday night.


JUMP
Continued from 1E
"Dane is a bulldog," Sebring coach
Tommy Lovett said. "We kind of set our
pitching up where if we got this far he
would be pitching and fortunately it worked
out for us. It was his (game) to'win or lose."
Sebring almost broke the game wide
open several, times, leaving the bases'
loaded in the first inning and stranding 11
runners in the game, something that frus-
trated Lovett at times.


LAUGH
Continued from IE
Armstrong, they didn't leave
voluntarily.
Thanks to some Spanish,
investigators who seem to be
taking a page from their
BALCO counterparts in the
United States, the Tour de
France field was stripped of
some top names Friday when a
number of riders were banned
on the eve of the race.
Among them were favorites
Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso,
caught tip in cycling's biggest
doping scandal since customs
officials got lucky in 1998 and
found a large stash of banned
drugs in a team car.
The irony is inescapable. All
those years of chasing rumors
against Armstrong, and now
they end up getting the guys
who kept finishing behind him.


"We scored two more than they did and
that's all that matters," he said. "The kids
worked real hard for two-and-a-half weeks,
came together as a team and played really
well."
Sebring opened the top of the first with
consecutive singles from Cullen Lovett and
Ty Little, but could only push across one
run on Chris Hensley's fielder's choice.
Lovett singled and Little walked with one
out in the third and both later scored on,
wild pitches for a 3-0 Sebring lead, and
Little drove in a run with a fielder's choice
in the fourth to make it 4-0.


Both tour and team officials
moved quickly once Spanish
officials gave them details of a
raid earlier this year on a doc-
tor's office that turned up
detailed doping records for
various riders, and numerous
bags of blood.
Ullrich was riding in a team
van on the way to a previously
scheduled press conference
when he got the word that he,
teammate Oscar Sevilla and
longtime adviser Rudy
Pevenage were implicated.
. "We kindly asked our bus
driver to turn around and go
back to the hotel," team
spokesman Luuc Eisenga said.
If only Major League
Baseball acted so quickly with
the BALCO investigation.
Because if these guys were
members of the player's union,
they would still be at the start-
ing line Saturday,
If nothing else, the doping


scandal ripped open an already
wide open race in the wake of
Armstrong's retirement.
Whether anyone outside.of
France really cares remains to
be seen now that the most
compelling story line is identi-
fying who is cheating and who
is clean.
One of those cheaters is -.
or rather, was -David Millar
of Scotland, who was banned
for two years in 2004 after
admitting using EPO. Millar
returns this year, and should he
win it might prove -to
Armstrong doubters that the
race can be won without dop-
ing.
"This drug hunt in Spain
will be fantastic for cycling
because the new generation of
riders are gong to be aware
that doping is bad for their
health and the sport," a repen-.
tant Millar said.
Perhaps. Either that, or they


Lake Placid got back into the mix in the
bottom of the fourth after Cantwell and
Josh, Zahn led off with singles and pitcher
TI ler Carr, who struck out six in a com-
plete-game effort, drove them both in with
a base hit to left to cut Sebring"s lead in
half.
Joey Staffieri's check-swing single over
first base in the top of the fifth drove in
Jordan Baker to put Sebring ahead 5-2 and
Little capped off his big night at the plate
with an RBI single in the top of the sixth
that put Sebring up by four runs heading
into the final inning.


will find a new way to cheat
because the money is too good
and the glory is too great.
Armstrong, meanwhile, con-
tinues his fight to clear his
name. On Friday he reached a
settlement in his libel suit
against the Sunday Times in
London, and a few months ago
he won a $7.5 million settle-
ment over a bbnus an insur-
ance company refused to pay
him for his 2004 win because
of allegations in a book that he
used performance-enhancing
drugs.
So far, retirement is looking
pretty good for Armstrong.
Maybe the French were a lit-
tle too quick to bid him adieu.

For the local fishing out-
look, -I checked with some of
the fish camps on Lake


Istokpoga. Trails End.Fish
camp reports that even with
the drop in water level, bass
fishing has been very good. A
10-pounder was taken this past
weekend along with several
smaller bass. Anglers are also
bringing in good stringers of
bluegills and crappies.
Henderson Fish camp .
reports about the same with
good catches of bass and
bream. Though the lake is
down somewhat, the ramps at
both" camps are usable. The
Windy Point ramp is closed
and Mossy Cove Fish Camp
says their ramp is unusable.
Henderson's and Trails End
both invite you to come on
down. Their ramps are open
and the fish are biting.
