WAUCHULA A trial date
has been set for suspected mur-
derer Michael Branham, but
whether a key state witness can*
testify may cause a delay.
Branham is accused of
killing his wife, Janette L.
"Jani" Branham, 36, on July 26,
2005.
Judge Susan W. Roberts,
10th Circuit Court, set the trial
for Oct. 9, anticipating a five- to
seven-day hearing.
"Your honor, I don't know
that we're in a position for a
trial if we still have this issue,"
Assistant State Attorney
Stephen K. Houchin said
Thursday during a video con-
ference with the Polk County-
based judge.
The issue, for which Roberts
said she's issuing an order to
deny, is whether Jim Kelly, an
attorney, can, testify to state-
ments allegedly made by the
defendant a week before' the
shooting.
"He's an- attorney who repre-
sented 'Mike on civil issues,"
Houchin said, explaining after
the hearing that Branham
allegedly tbld Kelly that he was
going to kill his wife about a
week earlier. "Our position is
that that's not covered by the
attorney-client privilege. Their
(the defense's) position is that it
is."
After receiving the written
order denying Kelly's testimo-
ny, Houchin said he'll decide
whether to appeal her decision.
Branham appeared Thursday
in an orange jail jumpsuit with
his attorney, Lawrence D.
Shearer. of Lakeland.
Jean Branham. the defen-
dant's mother, and a flie-nd
attended the hearing. .

Morning stand off ends without incident


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Brains not
brawn led to the three-hour. no
injuries conclusion of a stand
off Thursday in the 1,000 block
of Killarrnie Avenue.
Robert Yutng., 40. of
Sebring, was taken to a region-
al mental health facility for
evaluation, Highlands County
undersheriff Col. Terry Lewis
said.
"This one was brains and

that no weapons were used in


Young's surrender at 8:18 a.m.
At 4:48 a.m. Youn's., 18-
year-old son called 911.
The call "came as a plea for
crisis intervention," Sheri lt
SuLan Benton said in a press
siatemnlei. "His father had been
drinking heavily, and the sub-.
ject appeared to be injured and
was bleeding."
Lewis said the 18-year-old
left the home and went to a
neighbor's house down the road
to call the police.
"That was-a very smart move
on his part," Lewis said. "You


can see the poienri:il for vio-
lence escalating in a situation
like this."
The son told auithoriiies his
father appeared injured and was.
bleeding. In addition, he told
them v.eapons are kept ini the
.house.
When Young surrendered,
however, no weapons were
found on or near him, Lewis
said.
After Young gave up, his
injuries appeared superficial

VOLUME 9/NUMBER 42


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Members of the Lorida Volunteer Fire Department extinguish a mobile home fire Thursday evening on
Upsom Road in Lorida.


News-Sun
LORIDA Lightning might
be the culprit in a trailer fire
Thursday evening on Upsom
Road, just off of Hicks Road in
Lorida.
Lorida Volunteer Fire
Department Chief Gerald
Martin, talking in the remaining
drizzle of a passing electrical
storm, said there were no appar-
ent injuries.
The fire was called in about
5:15 p.m. by Derek Maddox, a
Montsdeoca Ranch employee,
who was on his way home and
decided to check the ranch's
property.
"It was lightning for an hour
and a half real bad out here,"
Maddox said. "I saw smoke
when I was driving by and
called 911."


While Maddox called for
help, he said a friend of his,
Justin Hartt, was coming to
look at hunting dogs at an adja-
cent residence.
"He knows the people who
live here," Maddox said, indi-
cating the smoldering home.
"We ran up to the house to
check it, he busted a window
out and yelled into the house."
The men attempted to toss
items from the porch but had to
retreat when the flames
engulfed the trailer.
Martin said the center por-
tion of the house was fully
involved when units arrived.
It took the crews 15-20 min-
utes to bring the blaze under
control.

SEBRING Members of
the Downtown Merchants &
Professionals' Association met
Wednesday night at the Samich
Place on the Circle.
It turned out to be the final
meeting of the organization as
is, because members voted 9 to
1 to merge with the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
With the chamber's resources
and larger membership, down-
town merchants and profession- .
als stand to gain a great deal
with the merger, Dan Andrews,
executive director of the cham-
ber, said before the vote.
He added that a vibrant and
busy ,downtown benefited
everyone.
The merger was never in
question, and only two real
objections were offered.
Some individuals were con-
cemrned that-by joining a larger
group. the smaller one would be
swallowed up.
Andrews said that the associ-
ation's board of directors would
become a sub-committee within
the chamber. He said this would
provide downtown merchants
and professionals with an effec-
tive voice within the organiza-
tion. He added a merger would
also give them more clout as the
chamber has a larger member-

for the upcoming Heartland Idol during a lunch meeting in Sebring.


ship and a successful newslet-
ter:
The other issue raised was,
what would happen with the
Heartland Idol perhaps the
best known of the downtown
merchants and professionals'
special events.
4A complex program to bring
offt successfull, the Heartland


Idol has been Diane Hirsch
Walker's reason for being ever
since her. grandfather died: It'
had been his idea to have an
American Idol type talent con-
test locally in the first place.
; And she admits she is deeply
involved, emotionally as well
as practically. She answers
questions and.solves problems.


Thedidea of turning over the
talenti contest to strangers who
might not appreciate its impor-.
tance, or cut her out, of the
process worried her tremen-
dously.. :
With reassurances from,
chamber officials, and a second
meeting between them, and the
Heartland Idol Organizing


Committee Thursday afternoon,
Walker's fears were put to rest.
She will continue to head the
Idol event.
This story was not without
ironies.
Neither Walker, nor her
mother, Debby Hirsch who
owns Unwrap The Party, the
family business belong to
either the Downtown
Merchants & Professionals'
Association or the chamber of
commerce.
And Unwrap the Party,
which uied to be located on
North Ridgewood Drive near
the Circle, is now out on U. S.
27.Andrews was respectful of
Walker's generosity. "We don't
turn away volunteers like that,"
he said.
Unwrap the Party's address
would be kept on fliers or
posters with, information
regarding' the Heartland Idol,
although the chamber of com-
merce will also be listed as a
registration site.
But Andrews wants people to
know that while .the chamber
believes in promoting Sebring
as a community, when it comes
to promoting individual busi-
nesses, the chamber is first and
foremost responsible to its pay-
ing members. Walker and the.
Heartland Idol are a special
case.

Woman survives break-in by


knife-wielding ex-boyfriend


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK A man breaks into a home
and threatens his ex-girlfriend with a knife
Wednesday.
Avon Park Police Officer James Parker
responded to. a call on North Anoka Avenue
where Mary J. Weaver, 34, claimed that her ex-
boyfriend had broken into her home and cut her
with a knife.
According to a police, report, Efrain M.
Vazquez, 34, had previously told police that he
and Weaver had been living together at the Anoka
residence for six years, along with four children
two shared between them and two of whom he
had custody. The relationship had allegedly
ended in June.
While Weaver lay sleeping on the couch in her
living room Wednesday morning, Vazquez
allegedly snuck into the home through her bed-
room window, went into the kitchen, and found a
serrated knife.
Weaver told police that she awoke while he
was in the kitchen but was still lying on the couch
when he entered the living room, according to
police.
Vazquez then allegedly put the knife to his
own neck, telling Weaver that he was going to
kill her and then himself. He then jumped on her
and pinned her down, placing the knife to her
neck and threatening again to kill her and take his
own life.
Weaver, in an attempt to stop him from slicing
her throat, told police that she tried to wrench-the
knife from Vazquez, afraid that he would kill her.
In the process, she allegedly cut her left thumb.
After receiving the injury, Weaver said that
Vazquez yelled at her and accused her of having


another man in the home while still holding her
on the couch, refusing to let her call for help.
According to the report, the defendant then
fled, running through the back yard and on to the
900 block of West Circle Street where his beg-
ging convinced a.homeowner to let him inside.
The homeowner allegedly told police that she
could tell that Vazquez seemed paranoid and
excited. She said that she asked him to leave sev-
eral minutes after he entered the home, at which
time he went into hiding in her garage.
A knife suspected to be that taken from
Weaver's home and used to hold her was found in
the kitchen sink of the West Circle Street home in
which Vazquez sought refuge.
The homeowner told police that she did not
own the knife and that it was not in the sink
before Vazquez came into her home. The police
report stated that the knife did not match others in
her home.
After finding the knife, police showed it to
Weaver who identified it as the one that had been
held to her throat.
Vazquez, whose jeans allegedly had what
looked to be blood stains on them, admitted to
having washed the knife in the home on Circle
Street and leaving it there so police wouldn't find
it.
Weaver told police that Vazquez had told her
that he had been watching her home all night long
and accused her of having another man inside the
residence.
He was arrested at 9:58 a.m. and charged with
domestic burglary (occupied dwelling armed);
kidnapping; and aggravated battery, as well as
tampering with evidence.
Further details were not available from the
Avon Park Police Department. ,

Miracle milestone celebrated





44.

L .












KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Baby Edwin Diaz attends a candlelight vigil on his behalf at Vision Community Christian Church
in Avon Park Wednesday in honor of his first birthday. His grandmother and grandfather, Diana
and Jimmy Acevedo (from left), and great-grandmother Sonia Patton, encircle him. Currently
awaiting life-saving multiple organ transplants, Edwin's birthday, June 29, was a miracle mile-
stone, nearly unheard of for a child with the rare disease with which he was diagnosed at birth.
Megacystis hypoperistalsis microcolon prevents proper function of the bladder and digestive sys-
tem. His battle for life has drawn the attention of the community, many of whom have been pray-
ing for his healing and collecting donations for his medical needs. Vision Community has raised
more than $10,000. 'I thank God for this church,' Diana Acevedo said. 'They have done more than
I'd ever have imagined. This was the last church I'd expect to have done this because we're not
members. But they've opened their doors to us and done so much.' To donate to Edwin's fund,
make checks payable to Highlands Independent Bank with Edwin James Diaz on the memoiline
and mail them to 8332 Pine Glen Road, Sebring, FL 33876.


American Red Cross seeks students,

instructors for health and safety classes


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING You walk into a
room and find someone on the
floor, apparently unconscious,
or you witness an accident'that
has injured a coworker or a total
stranger. Would you know what
to ,do?
The American Red Cross
Highlands County Service
Center wants to help. Health
and safety trainers can help
businesses, schools, homeown-
ers associations and private
individuals to have as many
people as possible certified in
first aid, cardio-pulmonary
resuscitation, and the proper
use of'a:n automated external
deifibi illUti:rr. u-!! :i; .
-Knowirig how to periorni the'
skills isn't enough. Training
include_ how to assess a situa-
tion, asking for consent to care
for someone, contacting emer-
gency medical services early
and providing the care needed
until those services arrive.
Art Harriman, service center
director, not only wants to bring
'people in to take classes, he
needs people to teach them.
Right now, the county has 50
people trained as instructors,
most assigned to their employ-
ers. About 10-15 of them teach
outside of work and about five
make up his corps of volunteer
instructors.
"We need to increase the
number of classes, but also the


number of instructors who will
teach off hours," Harriman said.
That includes not only first
aid and CPR instructors, but.
also babysitting class instruc-
tors. Some versions of the class
teach CPR and first aid training.
Even people who have been
trained need fresh training. The
Occupational Safety and Health
"Administration recommenda-
tion is to retrain people every
year. Techniques have changed.
At one time, a person gave a
breath with every 15 chest com-
pressions, now it's two breaths
for every 30.
Harriman has taught CPR for
miCore t[hi. 25"years; even while
a teacher in both public aii d pri-"
vate school. He's used it only,
four times including once on
the highway at a motor vehicle
accident.
It's also very easy to forget
the physical effort needed to
perform CPR exercises in train-
ing may last for two minutes
straight, he, said. In reality, a
person may be doing CPR five
or seven minutes before emer-
gency medical services arrive,
Harriman said. It can't stop
once it starts.
SEven in the best of times,
that's a critical amount of time
to give CPR, Harriman said.

or emergency medical services

person, Harriman said.
"You feel inadequate even
when you are doing it. You

'Am I doing& it right?'"
Harriman said. "Without train-
ing and retraining, I wouldn't
feel confident to do it."
Harriman said all new par-

for the sake of their children.

Annual butterfly census


scheduled for Sunday


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Butterfly fans
will be gathering at Highlands
Hammock State Park at 9 a.m.
Sunday for an annual butterfly
count.
Alana Edwards, president of
the Atala Chapter of the North
American Butterfly Associa-
tion, said the first count done at
the park was in 1998.
The process, which is done in
similar fashion to a bird count,
is intended to generate an idea
of what butterflies are out there
and to educate the public,
Edwards said.
She said that around 5D) to 55
species have been identified at
the park so far.
The number of butterflies
counted annually has decreased
recently, though Edwards is not
quite sure why.
Betty Podmore, who has her


own butterfly garden and is a
member of Highlands County's
Butterfly Friends, said the area
is losing butterflies due to pesti-
cides and a lack of plants neces-
sary for butterflies to lay eggs.
"Native plants are being lost
and butterflies need certain
plants for nectar, and also have
to have the exact host plant to
lay eggs."
Podmore, who likes to take
advantage of every opportunity
to educate the public about
these fascinating creatures, said
most people don't realize how
little they actually know about
butterflies.
"They taste with their feet,"
she said. "That's how they
know where to lay their eggs.
Our club tries to make people
more aware of butterflies' pat-
terns and help keep them going.
Just putting out the right plants-
makes, all the difference in the


world. The more people know
about them, the better."
The count will not only offer
volunteers the opportunity to
get out and walk through the
beautiful park, but will also be
educational.
"Anyone can come and
help," Edwards said. "We have
a lot of fun and people learn a
lot."
Although all are welcome to
participate, including children,
Edwards cautioned that it can
be very hot and is a long walk.
People can leave any time they
desire, but the event generally
lasts until around 1:30-2 p.m.
Participants are advised to
bring hats, suri screen, insect
repellent, water and lunch.
For more information or to
sign up, call Edward's Butterfly
Hotline at (561) 706-6732.
Regular park entrance fees of
$4 per vehicle will apply.

AVON PARK For those '
wondering about the fleet of
vehicles parked along State
Road 64 at the Avon Park
Executive Airport, they are part
of Bill Jarrett Ford-Mercury's
inventory.
"I went to C.B. Shirey and
asked if he'd like for us to lease
the land from the city, which
would relieve me, from having
to move them all to one of the
other out-of-town locations.
and bring some revenue into the


,00


city," Jarrett said .
The council was consulted
and a 3 to 2 vote in early May
sealed the deal with Jarrett. The,
city agreed to charge 14 cents
per square foot for the 42,000
square feet of property.
This amount, according to
John Barben, Airport
Community Redevelopment
Agency chairman, is the going
rate.
"They didn't get any sweet
deal or anything," he said.
Barben also said the property
where the vehicles are being'


stored is clearly outside of the
runway protection zone and no-
Federal Aviation
Administration safety regula-
tions are being compromised.
This win-win arrangement
came with one caveat, Jarrett
explained.
"At any time during the (May
2006 to April 2007 lease peri-'
od), if there is ever a need the
airport has which conflicts with
our use, given reasonable
notice, we would vacate the
property," he said.

WWII hero honored on Fourth of July


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING An American
war hero was honored on
Independence Day for his role
in keeping America free.
Tommie McGuire is a World
War II flying ace who had shot
down 38 Japanese fighter
planes by the time he was him-


self shot down over the
Phillipines in 1945. With his
guns jammed, he had crashed
while attempting to distract
attacking planes away from his
wing man. He was awarded the
Medal of Honor for his bravery,
and McGuire Air Force Base is
named after him.
As it happens, McGuire grew


up on the shore of Lake Jackson
in Sebring. He moved into his
maternal grandparents home
when he was 5 years old and
went on to graduate from
Sebring High School.
He is the only Highlands
County resident to date who has
received the Medal of Honor.
At 8 a.m., on the the Fourth of


July, McGuire's sacrifice was
remembered with a flag dedica-
tion ceremony at the Elks
Lodge 1259, at 10 Kenilworth
Boulevard.
It turns out McGuire's child-
hood home once stood in what
is now the Elks parking lot.
About 20 years ago a memo-
rial stone was placed in the


parking lot to commemorate
where McGuire had lived.
Over the years, however, the
site has become sadly neglect-
ed.
Joseph Wortman, chairman
of the veteran's committee at
the Elks Lodge, noticed it one
day and began a campaign to
clean it up.
Elk members enthusiastically
endorsed the idea, and a portion
of the profits from a large
garage sale were. dedicated to
installing two flag posts at the
memorial stone.
The Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post 4300 honor guard,
and an honor guard made up of
Sebring policemen and sheriff
deputies participated in the
event.
Highlands County Commis-
sioner Barbara Stewart spoke to
the audience of about 50 indi-
viduals.
In her remarks she looked to
history for inspiration, remind-


ing her audience that, the nation
had repeatedly been .through
difficult times and survived
each one.
Stewart stressed the impor-
tance of remaining optimistic
and confident in the face of
enormous challenge.
She reminded the audience
that with the help of people like
McGuire, the nation had always
triumphed in times of trouble.
Stewart said that every gen-
eration has made sacrifices -
her own son would soon be in
Iraq but it was important to
remain calm in the face of dan-
ger.,
While she worried, she said,
"We remain optimistic. We
remain looking toward the
future. I am confident we'll be
able to continue defending our
freedom.
"Pray for our young people,
and middle-aged people who
are fighting for our-freedom in
the Middle East."

memorial to Major Tommie McGuire, U. S. Army Air Corps, who is Highlands County's only medal of honor recipient. He served in the
Pacific Theater during World War H. McGuire grew up in a house that stood where Elks Lodge 1259's parking lot is now at 10 Kenilworth
Boulevard. Members of the lodge began a campaign to refurbish the memorial, which had become neglected and forlorn.

inflicted.
Lewis said 22 units were
called in and two negotiators,
Lt. Tim Lethbridge and Deputy
Rob Gunthorp, were able to talk
Young into coming to the door.
"We were expecting a long


day," Lewis said, explaining
that a three- hour conclusion is
not considered a long time.
"Time and the ability to talk is
key."
Lewis said the reason for
having 22 units on scene was to
keep the neighborhood secure.

The deputies had phone con-
tact with Young until 6:45 a.m.,
when the he allegedly made


"alarming comments."
The undersheriff said there
were no injuries to members of
the Special Response-Team, the
son, Young or nearby residents.

Lewis also added that there is
no history of domestic violence
or similar such incidents prior
to Thursday's stand off.
"Alcohol was very much
involved," he said.

Thor Log: Sore from hiking


passes, sprinting to bus stop


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.


Thursday, June 29
Hard hiking yesterday.
Camped alone Past Duck Lake
and had the best night's sleep in
a long time. Most of the other
hikers stopped at the lake. Less
mosquitoes away from so much
water, plus I went to bed early
and woke about 6 a.m.
Crossed Silver Pass today.
Heavy snow. Several river
crossings. I'm getting tired of
taking off my boots and putting
them back on, so I'll just cross
S with my boots. My feet get wet,
but don't hurt from the cold.
When I camp, I take my wet
boots off and put dry socks and
. sandals on.
SBarns decided to take a side
trail to Rainbow Falls and the
hot springs. I stayed on the trail.
rid ApKC Met a hiker called "Forbidden
idersU Donut" and another called
"Restless Wind."


- - Friday, June 30
Started hiking at 6:15 a.m..
Want to get into town early.
Most of the day was level or
downhill. I reached Reeds
Meadow at 10:30 a.m. The bus
- was at the store, so I sprinted
the last part to catch it. Found
out later there was no hurry;
they run every 20 minutes.
I got off the bus in Mammoth
Lake, caught another bus into
Mammoth and a trolley to
Motel 6. It's good Motel 6 has a
washer and dryer but I wish
they'd put shampoo in the
rooms. Always have to find a
drug store to buy a travel size
before getting a shower.
p No hikers staying at this
motel. I know some are in' town
but not sure where.


Floridians prepare for hurricanes


Special Wtfhe News-Sun I
The Florida Legislature has
recently approved the "Florida
Comprehensive Hurricane
Damage Mitigation Program,"
which will offer free home
inspections and matching
grants up to $5,000 for home
improvements (hurricane pro-
tection) to qualified homeown-
ers.
Accordifig to My Safe
Florida Home, Home
Inspection & Matching Grant
Program, the homeowner must
apply and obtain approval in
order to receive a free home
inspection. The listings below
define the guidelines for this
program:
"Floridians whose homes
have undergone a wind certifi-
cation and hurricane mitigation


inspection approved by the
Department of Financial
Services will then be eligible to
apply for matching grants up to
$5,000."
"A Floridian whose pri-'
mary residence is a single-fam-
ily, site-built home with an
insured value of less than
$500,000 and who has a home-
stead exemption will be eligible
to apply for a free home inspec-
tion.'"
"A Floridian possessing a
homestead exemption whose
primary residence has an
insured value of less than
$500,000 and is a unit in a resi-
dential building of up to four
units will also be eligible to
apply for a free home inspec-
tion. All unit owners in a resi-
dential building must agree to


participate in the program to be
eligible for free inspections."
"Properties not eligible for
free home inspections include
mobile homes or manufactured
homes, second homes, rental
properties, apartments or busi-
nesses."
If the homeowner does qual-
ify, examples of what the funds
can be used for include installa-
tion of storm shutters, roof
improvements, upgrades to
existing roofs and exterior
doors and the reinforcement of
roof-to-wall connections.
For more information on the
program, log onto mysafeflori-
dahome.com. Additional infor-
mation and applications for free
home inspections will be avail-
able in August.


FIRE
Continued from 1A

He wasn't sure what caused
the fire. The state fire marshal's
office was notified, he said.
The resident, a woman with a
child in her pickup, arrived and
was parked down the road from
her home.


I have reached the Ansel
Adams Wilderness area.
Yosemite National Park is next.
Saturday, July 1
Red and Garry are at the
motel. A hiker by the name of
Bill had to be hospitalized for a
day. Not sure why, but he is
leaving the trail.
There are five or six others in
town. Heard that Krispie and
Janetor were somewhere in the
area. Someone said they have a
friend that lives here. The oth-
ers tell me Bams didn't come
into town.
I am doing laundry, eating
and resting. Found a spa close
to the motel and got a massage.
Muscles in legs and
buttocks are really sore from
hiking the passes. My leg mus-
cles really need a day to rest.
Going back to the trail
tomorrow. It may be a few days
before I can make contact
again.
Sunday, July 2
After talking with the spa
receptionist while waiting for
my massage, they gave me a
$20 discount after learning I
had been a spa manager for sev-
eral years. The receptionist also
insisted on giving me a ride
back to the park today. From
there, I took the bus back to
Reds Meadow and the trail.
Met up with Red and Gary
and hiked over Island Pass, but
it didn't have nearly as much
snow nor was it as steep. Crazy
Horse was in camp tonight
along with six other hikers.
While cooking dinner a deer
came into camp. I have never
been able to get a picture of a
deer. They always get away
before I can find my camera.
I had only been asleep a short
time when I heard these heavy
footsteps. I thought it must be a
really big animal of some kind,
but a few minutes later I saw a
headlight and realized it was a
late hiker.


A firefighter, updating the-
chief, said they were in the
process of contacting the
American Red Cross to help the
family.


Monday, July 3
Hiked over Donahaugh Pass,
and am now in Yosemite
Park. You can tell a camp-
ground or hotel is near by the
number of day hikers. Saw
between 20-30 hikers today.
You can tell day hikers from
through-hikers: They look
so clean.
I got pulled over by a park
ranger today. He checked my
park pass and my bear contain-
er for my food. I know Crazy
Horse had no bear container.
Hope he made it through OK.
Called my journal in from
Tuolumme Meadows using a
land-line phone. Didn't go into
the resort of Yosemite, but kept
hiking. Found a note on the
board at the little store from-
Bams,- Janetor and Krispie.
They went into the resort for the
Fourth.
- Met a hiker called "Weather
Carrot." He has hiked the
Appalachian Trail and the
Pacific Crest Trail, and made
films of both. Said the resort
was a mad house.
Jesus said, "If you hold
to my teachings, you will
know the truth, and the
truth will set you free. If
Jesus sets you free, you
will be free indeed".

The death of patriotism


On ,'this past GUEST I
Fourth of July UT
most patriotic ..
Americans X a\ed endy
flags, set off fire-
works had a family '
barbecue, anrd genuinely
enjoyed the freedoms that are
the birthright of Americans
everywhere. Founding father
Thomas Jefferson warned.
future generations that "the tree
of liberty must be watered with
the blood of patriots and
tyrants, from time to time:".
:The freedom we still enjoy'
was purchased with the blood
of patriots, and from time to
time despots and tyrants have.
threatened our freedoms.'
America's patriots stood in the
breach by defending those freer
doms with their own blood.
Patriotism means love and:
devotion towards one's home-
land. The word derives from the,
Latin word "Patria," meaning
"the land of our fathers." But
today being a patriot is similar,
to having family values, it is a
word that means whatever one
wants it.to mean.
Politicians eager to score
points against the administra-
tion find no conflict in calling
the U.S., government corrupt
and dishonest. This is a very
serious charge, but elected
members of, the government
regularly bandy it about, and
they know full well that by
doing so they are aiding and'
abetting to what should be our
common enemy, of "Islamic
jihad ideology." This disloyalty
to our American government by
our elected officials is so com-
mon, that we now have labeled
it as ACE. That is short for Aid
and Comfort to the Enemy.
A prominent American enter-
tainer made headlines with her
comments to a British tabloid.
Natalie Maines, lead singer for
the Dixie Chicks, equated patri-
otism with pandering, she said,
"A lot of pandering started
going on, and you'd see sol-
diers and the American flag in
every video. It became a sick-
ening display of ultra-patriot-
ism." She went on to ask, '\Why
do you have to be a patAot?


About what? This
COLUMN land s our land?
.. WhN ? You can like
Griffin r. a
where sou live and
like your life. but
as for lo ing the
whole country ... I don't see
why people care about patriot-
ism."
Instead of being horrified at
the thought of someone so
blessed expressing such ingrau-
tude. Nlaines comments
spawned a national debate oer
"what a patriot is all about. In the
final analysis. it apparently isn't
about much.
Adislo al official of the go%-
ernment recently leaked opera-
tional details about a secret
United States, terror fighting
program to the New York Times.
The administration pleaded
with the NYT not to reveal it.
The editors at the NYT rejected
the administration's plea and
ran the story anyway.
The administration (which is,
by' the way, the United States
government) said the leak
caused serious damage for our
ability to trace sources of fund-
ing for terrorist organizations.
You can be sure that this leak,
will cost more American lives.
That is the textbook defini-
tion of treason. Had the NYT
revealed the plans of the D-
Day invasion in 1944, the edi-
tors would have been impris-
oned as spies and shot. Today
the government can say, "That
is classified," and the NYT can
say "No it's not" and that is the
end of it.
In 2006 America, putting
one's party ahead of one's
country is what passes for patri-
otism. The last time that hap-
pened in America it prompted
Abraham Lincoln to repeat the
Biblical truth that "a house
divided against itself cannot
stand," but then America wasn't
already engaged in'an external
global war then, we are now,
and' our survival is in the bal-
ance.
Almost five 'years after the
terrorist attack of Sept. 11,
;2001, American forces are still
in 'the battle field. If this, were
See DEATH, page 17A


Since Tuesday was the
Fourth of July, there were just a
few traditions that I could not
escape from writing about. It
always seems, at least in my
family and friends setting; that
whenever there is a tradition or
function there will be food
involved. Perhaps this is just a
great coincidence or it might
have something a little bit more
tied down into it.
Whenever I sit down to have
a talk with someone it always
tends to be either over food or
at the kitchen table. And when-
ever we have traditions, like the
one Tuesday, there always
seems to be some form of deli-
cious delights laid out for uis.
So, to get down into the heart
of the issue I decided to do a lit-
tle research upon traditions and
their foods. I first did this to see


MURPHY'S LAW
Lindsey Murphy

if I was the only person out
there with a wacky family. Yet,
come to find out, there, are
many of you out there. In fact,
when I Googled it, there were
tens of thousands of. Web sites
promoting such things. It seems
as if whenever people gather,
there is bound io be some form
of grubbing taking place.


Just to provide a little humor
into your life and perhaps
something you can relate to, the
top "traditional food stories" (as
I like to call it) are here for you
to enjoy.
First on the list is the classic
story of a loving aunt. You see,
my sister and I. .have some
rather odd food allergies that
has made'it difficult for us to eat
like "regular people." So, in
order for us to "have mashed
potatoes and salads like the.rest
of the family at various dinner
times, my aunt would always
make two forms of such items.
One would be for the rest of the
family, the'other would be made.
with ingredients that we could
have.
The next one includes the,
favorite dish situation. Like
anyone else. I have a special


dish that I just love when a cer-
tain family member makes it.
And in order for that person to
make it, I used to believe that a
little "sucking-up" had to take
place. I would tell her the
sweetest things, meanwhile hop-
ing she would make my dish.
Later I learned that this did not
need to take place, but just ask-
ing for it will do.

Whether you are food fanat-
ics or never noticed it until this
point, let it be, a part of your tra-
ditions. For it is sweet to look
back upon such things in loving
remembrance. (Plus the left-
overs are delicious as well.)

Remember the Sunday summer siesta


When the thermometer peaks
to the 90s on a Sunday after-
noon. there is no other alterna-
tive: Take a nap.
Lazy. long Sunday afternoon
naps. Especially during the
summer, and particularly when
you turn your air conditioning
to "lo\" they. replenish'
heart. mind. body and soul.
I wouldn't be surprised if
there is not some government
studNy indicating that naps
reduce stress, increase good
cholesterol, improve your
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test scores and
,clean out the kitty litter pan.
Speaking of kint Inter. con-
sider' your family feline (if you
have one) oti the fine art of nap-:
ping: :r ,
Find a place to hide.
Banish all guilt. Take as
many guilt-free hours as you
desire.
Nap often.
Give anyone and everyone
who disturbs your zzzzzzzz's'
with "the look.," showing con-
tempt and reproof
My favorite time is right after
lunch, following -church. It's"
been a good day in the Lord.
I've nourished my soul; how.
it's time to replenish the body.
However, other people may
desire to nap after pursuing
other activities: Boating with
family, 'spending some ddwn-
time with friends or gardening.


In any case a nap
afterwards would be J
of great benefit.
NMl theory is nap-
ping helps the diges-
tive system. or ,
may be it's \ ice versa.
In any case. %when
tummies art fulleth. ,
they beget eyelids
that becometh hea'i- GRANT
elh. which maketh
bodies to desireth to Kathy
lie-eth down and --
resteth. II'm sure this
saying is in Pro\erbs
of the King James Version,
somewhere).
Another proverb pops to
mind: -He, who fails to take a
Sunday afternoon nap will find
himself face dow% n in the dinner
pot roast." Pro\erbs 26:14,
KGV ilKathy Grant Version).
The length 'of time for a nap
is insignificant. It can be a 10-
minute 'catnap," 'although I
find that to be an oxymoron.
Cats are known to sleep away
.half of their nine lives. Naps
also can spill ober into past the
dinner hour, almost until bed-
time. .
'Ooops. Missed the Sunday
evening service again.
. Now don't go blaming your
pastor for setting you' up for
your afternoon nap. However,
I've seen many an eyelid droop
and many a head nod and bob
as I scan the congregation.


hard to bring a mes-
sage from the Lord.
It's unfair. Mabbe
)our minister %would
'like to take a nap in
the middle of one of
his sermons.
Even the Lord
himself rested on the
S TOME seventh day after cre-
tion. So. a little
I Grant Sunday afternoon
--- nappy-poo would not
hurt us either.
I like to imagine
our loving heavenly Father
humming a lullaby as he brush-
es our cheeks with a kiss and
tucks us into bed. Perhaps he
longs, as earth\ parents do. to
smell the sw eetness of our hair.
To him we probably look hke
little angels when We sleep.
But, oh, are we a handful when
we wake up.'
I often wonder in this accel-
erated society, if the Sunday
afternoon nap is outdated.
Somehow, as Americans, it
seems as though we need to be
"doing" something. We're a
goal-centered, .list-keeping,
schedule-making, perfectionist
society that rewards the worka-
holic.
When was the last time you
heard about Fred getting a cor-
ner office while climbing his
career ladder for napping on the
job? Or how many of you have,


'Freedom of press and speech, of course, are funda-

mental in our COnstitution, and we had better all

live up to. thatand see that it is lived up to by others,

or our Constitution is in deep trouble, and so is our

democracy.'
WALTER CONKRITE, former CBS News anchor, 2004


cheered and applauded
Gertrude for taking. a Sunday
summer repose?
In all my years I've neter
heard anyone sa\, "That
HarxeN. Out of all his good
qualities. I admire the most the
way he naps on Sunday after-
noons.
Call them Sunday siestas.
Call them first da\ of the week
dozing. Call them a state of'
weekend indolence. Call them
what \ou want. But, take one.
for heaven's sake.
You need'the rest. I see those
dark circles under your eyes.
You deserve snoozing for a cou-
ple of hours on the "weekend.,
Asforme, I and my cat, Miss
Hannah Banana, will stretch out
on my bed for a, summer's
Sunday slumber and turn the
thermometer to "low."
See you in my dreams.

DEATH
Continued from 16A
World War II, it would be over by
now, but five years into this war we
still don't seem to be able to admit
to whom we are at war with. We are
allegedly fighting international ter-
ror, but terror isn't a thing, or an
enemy, it is a tactic.
The 'fire bombing in WWII of
Dresden, Germany, was designed to
install terror within the enemy's
population, thereby destroying their
will to fight. The atomic bombing
of Hiroshima and Nagasaki used
the same tactic, with the same goal
in mind. It is a tactic; whether or
not it's an enemy depends on by
whom the tactic is employed.
Our enemy is defined as one who
is guilty of planning, aiding or
committing an act of terror, but to
this point in history the word terror
is loosely defined, as is family val-
ues, patriotism or marriage. We
define our enemy by his tactic and
until he deploys his tactic by attack-
ing, he is not a terrorist, and there-
fore not yet an enemy.
In a conflict in which interroga-
tion might save a city, the rules of
engagement, are those of normal
law enforcement, not the rules .of
war. While American forces battle
the Jihadists, they are required to
reverence the idolatry that spawns
them. Our military bases have cen-
ters of Islamic studies where U.S.
guards take sensitivity, training to
learn how to. handle the Koran,
without defiling it, and yet it is this
book that teaches Jihad.,
Every year the White House
hosts .a Ramadan feast. Last year
instead of Christmas cards, it sent
out cards proclaiming Holiday
Greetings, so as to not offend
America's Islamic .population.
Jihad is a Muslim doctrine.
Jihadists are Muslims who take it
seriously. Until there is a recogni-


tion that the war we are in is with
Islamic Jihad ideology we cannot
win. Declaring war against Islamic
Jihadist ideology means declaring
war basically -with the Islamic
world.
The heart and soul of the Wahabi
Islamic Jihad's culture is Saudi
Arabia and it is one of our strongest
allies. Yet, if Washington were to
fight to win, the first ones to feel
the American terror would be the
Saudis, the keepers of Mecca and
Medina. The house of Saud con-
quered Mecca and Medina because
they believe in the Wahabi teach-
ings, these teachings drove them to
drive the Hassimites who had been
for centuries the custodians of
Mecca out. The Wahabi driven
Saudis considered them not to be
devote enough to have that honor.
The global economy would grind
to a screeching halt and the result
would make the great depression
pale by comparison, that's why we
are fighting a war against an enemy
no one dares to name. But the real
reason is because if we name the
enemy we won't be able to appease
him by pretending the war is
against a small group of extremists.
The price of winning is just much
too high.
For much of the passed 60 years,
most citizens of' the industrialist
world grew up matured and retired
without personally hearing a shot
fired in anger. There has been
splendid little wars like the Faulklin
Islands or the on again, off again
Greek wars, maybe even a colonial,
insurrection or two, but most of the
wars fought in the last half of the
20th century were American wars.
Before the Gulf War, the rest of
.the world seemed happy to have
America serve as the world's
policemen. Then the U.S. smashed
what had been the world's fifth,
most powerful military force with a
bliss screen offensive that lasted
only 100 hours. That demonstration


of America power forever ended
any international support for
American wars. According to the
international community, no enemy
threat can ever again justify a full
American military response. They
say it would be like Chuck Norris
beating up a third-grader. Third-
graders armed with knitting needles
do considerable damage to a bound
and helpless Chuck Norris. Trying
to placate world opinion is one of
the reasons why America has taken
such an international black eye for
its wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Many in the United Nations are
always crying out that despite the
provocation and regardless of the
response, America is always wrong.
American successes are the result
of heavy-handed American tactics,
American failures are the result of,
heavy-handed American tactics.
In 1624, John Donne wrote that
"No man is an island, entire of
itself, every man is a piece of the
continent and a part of the main."
The United States of America
celebrated its 230 years of exis-
tence surrounded by declared ene-
mies and non-committed friends.
Like Israel, we have become an
island in a sea of nations isolated by
our policies and condemned by
friend and foe alike. We are a
nation, adrift unsure of. our culture,
our moral code, or even what we
hold to be more precious.
*As .Xmenca turns 230 years old,
the world has begun to wonder,
maybe 230 years is just about long
enough, and so has a significant
portion of the American political
left.
So happy. birthday America,
enjoy it while you can.

A right to fe


giving away
Warren Buffet, financial
wizard and chief executive SHE
officer of Berkshire Hathaway,
has donated $37 billion to The She
Bill and Melinda Gates


Foundation. Wow, what a tax
break for Warren.
But one has to wonder how he will ever
manage on the paltry few .dollars he has left.
Let's see, $44 billion take away $37 billion
leaves only $7 billion for Mr Buffet to live
on. How will he pay his mortgage? How
will he pay the gardener?
No problem; Mr. Buffet has 'no mortgage,
and admits he leaves his yard in a natural
state, letting it do whatever it wants to with-
out the benefit of a lawn mower. I read that
little nugget of information in his biography
and couldn't help but feel admiration for
anyone who would fly in the face of tradi-
tion and ignore the lawn.
I understand Warren Buffet still lives in
the suburban home he purchased many
years ago at a cost of about $45,000. Maybe
that's the way to amass a fortune; buy one
house, don't sell it, don't move to a more
affluent neighborhood when you've made
your first million, don't pa\ a gardener and
don't buy a lawn mower. Not keeping up-
with the Joneses can save you a lot of
money.
Many homeowners spend, thousands of
'dollars every year trying to keep their yards
looking as good as a billionaire's yard.
Armed with the knowledge that the wealthy


el good about


$37 billion


:ILA SAYS
eila Ryan


don't necessarily cut their
grass, they can now rest easy,
enjoy the weekends off and
donate the money they save to
charity.


When Bill Gates was build-
ing his fortune some said he
never combed hishair or paid attention to
the clothes he wore. That all changed when
he got married and his wife encouraged him
to get a haircut and put on a nicely pressed
suit. Both men ignored unimportant things
like personal appearance or yard mainte-
nance while fulfilling their destinies.
Of course, Warren did not simply run
over to Bill's house, hand him the check,
and then celebrate the occasion by clinking
two glasses of Pepsi Cola together. Their
plans have been in the works for a long
time, with innumerable. meetings attended
by hordes of attorneys.
No, matter how much or how little is
involved, money is like manure; you have
to spread it around if it's to do any good.
I remember watching my grandmother
write out a check to charity and as she
secured the flap on the envelope I asked
why she gave her money away to people she
didn't know. She answered quickly; "It
feels good."
* Warren Buffet must feel 37 billion times
better than that.

Fighting Flood Damage In Your Home


(NAPS)-When it's hurricane season, the
rough weather can come right into your
home. In fact, heavy, rains and high winds
combined can do tremendous damage
anytime of year.
The greatest natural threat to homes in
the U.S. is flooding. Even homes outside
high-risk areas are still vulnerable; as
many as a quarter of all flood insurance
claims are outside those areas.
Here are some ways you can minimize
flood damage in you home:
If you can do it safely-from someplace
dry-shut off the power.
Blot or mop up as much water as you
can, and wipe your furniture dry.
Loop the ends odf your'draperies through
a coat hanger and put the hanger on the
curtain rod to deep the ends off the wet
carpet,
Open cabinet doors, drawers, luggage
and other closed things to facilitate drying.
Pack damp books tightly to prevent
warping of pages. Large quantities of
books should be handled by a restoration
professional to avoid damage during the
drying process.
* Remember, an ordinary vacuum will do
little or nothing to help with water or water
damage, and using one to get rid of water
may even be dangerous. Use a sub-
mersible pump or a wet/dry vacuum.


If you can smell mold but not see it,
look for it above the ceilings or behind the
walls.
Don't open your windows if the humidity
outside is more than 40 percent; it will only
make things worse.
Don't hesitate to call in an expert.
Because bacterial growth can start almost
immediately, a professional response in the
first 24 hours makes all the difference.
You can get everything back to normal
fast with some help from the experts at
ServiceMaster Clean. Their local serv-
ice businesses are trained, equipped and
ready to restore your home after any dis-
aster, from water in the basement to fire
and smoke damage in the kitchen. When
the unforeseen happens, call
863-402-9040 or find experts at

Lifest e


Need a


green thumb
My front yard has finally
turned from being a sandtrap .
to a sparsely grass-covered
lawn again. This spring, I
kept threatening to dig it all
up and put in a pond, or sim-
ply have it paved and spray
paint it green. Actually, I am
still considering the spray
painting.
When I first visited my
folks, Sebring home at
Christmas, back in 1992,
their neighbor had poinset-
tias that grew to the top of
the house like shrubs.
There's a picture of a holiday
poinsettia tree at
h,ill i 11 it '. ,.it,i 'rg/wiki/
Poinsettia. I fell in love
right then and there with the
Sebring area'.
After the holidays last
December, I stopped at the
local home improvement
store and browsed through
their remaining poinsettias.
These were the' dregs of holi-
day plants; withered and bro-
ken, just waiting to die. I
picked out what I thought
-were the most likely to sur-
vive and took them to the
cashier. When she be'. ;'
ringing them up, I found out
the price was reduced from
$4.99 each (what my neigh-
bors paid) to 74 cents. I went
back and rescued the remain-
ing red and pink poiinitri .
Afte iinisin,' thlemn
through the long-lasting cold
spells we had. this, year, I sct
them against my hedges to
keep the wind from 'constant-
ly knocking them over. That
was the bet thing I could
havedone; they have
thrived. It also has inspired .
me to do something u ith my
flower beds.,
Let me be very clear, here
and now: I am not a garden-
er I iha e n' desire.to :bea
gardener. I do. however, love
flo'.v,eLI rd scents So. beinri
a homeowner. a .im t hinlkin

to stay away from invasive
and non-native Florida '
fauna, so Lantana is now off
my list.

'Superman Returns' makes a



great movie for men and women


I felt obligated, as everyone
in the newspaper business
should, to see "Superman
Returns." Two out of three of
the most popular comic icons
have chosen the profession as a
lodging for their anonymity and
a means for gathering evidence
and information. on wrong-
doers.
Spiderman has constant
access to some truly spectacular
camera angles: inverted images
of surprised criminals, snap-
shots from the 52nd floor, etc.
Superman's. reporting skills
may be lackluster, but in
Sebring, you'd better believe
I'd be flying along the track
conducting mid-Race inter-
views at 100 plus mph.
Batman has the best gig as an
independently wealthy million-
aire playboy, but he. always
seems to be inconveniently in
Gotham's public eye, shielding
his eyes from camera flashes
with buxom starlets hanging
from his arm. If he worked for
the News-Sun, he wouldn't have
these problems (sigh).
The alter-ego is an important
factor in the superhero equa-
tion. Like David Carradine's
character in "Kill Bill"
explains, "Clark Kent is
Superman's critique on the
whole human race." You could
even argue that, as far as acting
ability is concerned, playing
Kent is a much tougher task
than the Man of Steel. For this
reason alone we should
embrace the advent of Brandon'
Routh as a Hollywood some-
body. Mimicking Christopher
Reeves' aw-shucks nerdiness
from the 1978 version to a T,
Routh has no problem with the

"stoic hero" side of things
either..
"Superman Returns" does a
lot of borrowing from the 1978,
version, from the goose-flesh
inspiring trumpets of John
Williams' theme music to the
echoing voice of Marlon
Brando, there is a welcome
familiarity that an entire rein-
vention couldn't possibly
achieve.
That's not to say that this
new version doesn't tread on
new territory. As we move into


an era where the "superhero
movie" becomes an annual
summer event, we can see the
genre itself evolving.
Explosions and special effects
simply don't get it done any-
more. We're demanding, and
the studios are providing us
with, more substance and emo-
tion.
Some people may have a
problem with this in Bryan
Singer's "Superman Returns."
Make no mistake, this is a love
story.
As Superman returns to earth
after five years from investigat-
ing the destruction of his home
world, everything in his person-
al life has changed., Most
imponranil\. Lois Lane (Kate
Bosworth) has moved on with
her life, is engaged to a nice guy
(James Marsden) and has a con-
spicuously 5-year-old son. In
Superman's absence, Lane has
written a Pulitzer Prize winning
story entitled "Why the World
Doesn't. Need Superman," so
naturally, we expect a bitter
woman scorned when it comes
to the reunion.
Kevin Spacey plays Lex
Luthor, and although he sells
the bad guy with an edgy spike


of sarcasm and viciousness, at
times he seems to exist only
because we must have a villain.
Luthor has stolen crystal shards
from Superman's "Fortress of
Solitude" and plans to destroy
North America by supplanting
it with a new continent.
I'm not giving anything away
by telling you Superman saves
the day. The character has done
guys everywhere a favor by
providing a great date movie.
There's enough tear-jerking,
chemistry between Bosworth
and Routh for the ladies but a
healthy dose of fist-pumping.
laser-eye-blasting, car hitiing
stuff for the dudes.
As for this intrepid film crit-
ic/sports writer, I just have to
find the right costume.

Master of disguises come in various forms


S -We have all seen, movies
where the villain was able to
escape the authorities because
he wore some type of disguise
to trick his pursuers. It might be
a fake mustache and beard,
change of hair color, glasses, or
change of wardrobe. Whatever
the case, it can be said that peo-
ple can be tricked by disguises.
If we were to start searching
for the master of disguises, we
would not have to look any fur-
ther than the Bible. Because
God, in his inspired word tells
us aboutthe great master of dis-
guises. You know him better as
Satan.
Satan may be the master of
disguises because he has been
at it so long. He deceived Eve
into eating the fruit in the gar-
den way back when there were
only two people on the planet.


He didn't approach
her as a "bad guy" or
one that was "filled
with evil." He came
to her as one who had
all the answers and '4:e",
made bold promises.
He disguised himself .
as someone who
wanted what was best
for these two people. VElR
Did his disguise S II
work?' You better
believe it. Read Vn
Genesis 3:1-6 and -
see. Verlor
In speaking about -
false teachers and,
prophets in 2 Corinthians 11,
Paul says, "And no marvel; for
Satan himself is transformed
into an angel of light. Therefore
it is no great thing if his minis-
ters also be transformed as the


RLO


TAN


minister' of righteous-
N) ness; whose end shall
be according to their,
,* works," based on 14-
15. The master of
darkness is disguised
as light. Almost
unthinkable but
only because we
O 7 sometimes lessen the
ON S mighty power of this
TUAL master of deceit.
Have you been
MIN deceived by the mas-
-- ter of disguises? Do
Carrell you as a non-
"- Christian still walk
about thinking that
you will become a Christian
"some day?" Do you as a weak
Christian still think that one day
you will come "give all" to
Christ and have a real relation-
ship with him? Are you as an


unfaithful child of God still
blaming some other Christian,
for your fall out with God? If
you were honest with yourself,
and answered "yes" to any of
the above questions, the master
of disguises is fooling you right
now.
Isn't it time you took the
mask off of this force of terror?
Jesus is the answer, allow him
to help you.
"But thanks be to God, which
giveth us the victory through
our Lord Jesus Christ," based
on 1 Corinthians 15:57.

at Lake Placid Church of
Christ. He can be reached at

MATINEE
Continued from 1C
for waltzes, gospel hymns,
popular songs, or anything else
he fancies. Milne began his
musical career not as a pianist,
but as a French horn virtuoso.
He performed for the
Rochester Philharmonic and
the Baltimore Symphony.
When the performances were
over, the symphony musicians
would relax in a local saloon.
Often times, because he didn't
carry his horn around with
him, Milne found himself at
the piano, quickly learning
how to accompany the singers
and entertain the crowd. Since
then, he has grown into a well-
known and respected pianist
and authority on ragtime and
boogie woogie music.
International star Greg
Bonham will perform on
March 6. Originally from
Australia, Bonham's mix of
Aussie charm, versatility and
unique talent is the key to his
success. His high energy per-
formance, featuring his amaz-
ing stage presence, powerful
voice, and superb trumpet
playing has established him as
an international headliner. His
humor and honesty is a hit with
every audience, and crmtcs
have compared his sound to
Harry James and his incredible
high range to Maynard
Ferguson.

History Lesson
15 Years Ago
July 7, 1991: The
Highlands County Dixie
Majors host team for the
1991 Dixie Majors World
Series began preparation .
by splitting a doubleheader
against the Highlands
County Pre-Majors at Head
Field. The Pre-Majors
edged the older squad 4-3
in five innings to open the
series, then lost 10-3 in
seven innings in the sec-
ond game. Tavares "Slick"
Tate blasted a two-out dou-
ble in the top of the first
inning in the opening
game. The Pre-Majors
squad scored the game-
winning run in the bottom
of the fourth inning after.
consecutive singles by
Kevin Howard and Rocky
Cousins and a squeeze
bunt single with two outs
by Todd Schuler.

30 Years Ago
July 8, 1976: Ira Campbell
of the Highlands Coca-Cola
slow pitch softball team of
Avon,Park walked away
with two individual honors
as the team traveled to
Pahokee to play in the
Pahokee Bicertdennial
Invitational Slow Pitch
Softball Tournament. "Big
Ira" won the batting aver-
age trophy with a batting
average of .826 with 19
hits in 23 plate appear-
ances. He also won the
home run trophy with six
round-trippers. The Coca-
Cola team finished second
in the tournament, which
included 14 teams from
Frostproof, Belle Glade,
Okeechobee, Clewiston,

National forces

showdown

offense and some spectacular
leatherwork led to a snappy
game Thursday as Okeechobee
forced a winner-take-all cham-
pionship to be played tonight
by beating Sebring American
3-1.
Okeechobee pitcher Mark
Weir went the full six innings
and crushed a two-run home
run to center field in the first
inning, paving the way to victo-
ry.
It took less than 90 minutes
for Okeechobee to take care of
business, and although Sebring
American made steady contact,
the Okeechobee defense held
tough when it had to.
Okeechobee first baseman
Timmy Ferrell reached on a
walk in the first to set up Weir's
blast that ultimately would be
all they needed. Richard
Donagan added to the lead by
scoring in the second when
Brad Coleman ripped an RBI
single.
Sebring American toiled at
the plate, looking for chances
to score and falling short when
the best opportunities presented
themselves. In the third inning,
with Austin Blanco at third and
Alex Griffin at second, Zach

Howard hit an infield grounder
catching Blanco at third as
Griffin came wheeling from
'second. After Griffin retreated,
an errant throw toward second
into the outfield sent Griffin
racing back to third.
Okeechobee right fielder Noah


Wilcox had the play backed up
perfectly and gunned the runner
at third.

Sebring National

beats Lake Placid

for third place
By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Sebring
National defeated Lake Placid
5-2 to earn a spot in the state
tournament with a third-place
finish in the Dixie Youth
Majors District 8 tournament at
Durrah Martin Complex
Thursday night.
Sebring starting pitcher Kyle
Cunningham held Lake Placid
scoreless for the first three
innings, allowing just one sin-
gle. Gunnar Westergom threw a
1-2-3 inning in the fourth,
Jonathan Knight pitched the
fifth and Jared Cannon the
sixth.
Sebring played "small ball"
to move out to a 3-0 lead. In the
first, Seth Abeln doubled and
later scored on a passed ball. In
the third, Cody Spiegel singled
and went to second on a passed
ball. He stole third and scored
when the throw to third went
into left field.
Westergom led off the fourth
with a walk and moved to sec-
ond on a passed ball. He went
to third, on Abeln's ground-out
and scored on a sacrifice fly by
Knight.
Lake Placid cut into the lead
in the bottom of the fifth. With
two outs, Pike Cloninger drove

Local runners

on right track
I left Highlands
Hammock State Park on
Tuesday feeling pretty
good about myself.
Along with 140 other
people, I woke tip at
dawn's early light, dressed,
stretched and ran 3.1 miles
in the Firecracker 5K race.
As I drove out of the
Hammock Restaurant's
parking lot (my inner teen
decompressing to Linkin
Park), I passed an elderly
man who rounded the last
turn and was making his
way toward the finish line
about 100 yards away.
"Good job!" I yelled
over the music to him.
I finished well-behind
race winners Patrick High,
who posted a time of 17
minutes, 18 seconds and
Jessica Marlier who turned
in a time of 20:38.
Nonetheless, I was
happy my time was
27:20, nothing to brag
about really, other than
'besting my expectations by
three minutes.
Other than dry heaving
spumed by my 100-yard
dash to the finish, I felt
great and went home to _
prepare for what would d be
a 74-mile bike ride.
Aside from feeling well
physically after the run, I
felt great emotionally.
At first, I thought it was
the infamous "runner's
high," but I don't think I
was on the ground long
enough to achieve that.
After some reflection, I
think it was just being
there that felt good. There's
something inspirational, if
not satisfying, to see all
these like-minded individu-
als some avid racers,
others just starting.
I saw people of all
shapes, sizes and ability
out there. I knew some
from stories I've covered.
Others, I never saw before
and may never see again.
On Wednesday, I called
race coordinator Chet
Brojek to get the final
results for the paper.
It was then that I learned
the real story, which put
my personal finish in per-
spective.
Six-year-old Andrew
Savoye completed the 3.1
miles in 40:24. Then, there
was No. 1 ranked Senior
Olympian Tom McDonald,
82, who posted a 31:45 fin-
ish and W.H. Harward, also
82, who spent 49:15 on the
canopied asphalt that

The Fourth of July modified
scramble was played with a field
of 56 players (14 foursomes,
both males and females from 12
to 86 years old).
, All four players teed off, the
best drive was used by all play-
ers, But here's the twist, before
hitting, the next shot, 'one of the
four players had to be picked to
play the rest of the hole on their
own ball, using .their handicap.
The other three players played
the rest of the hole as a scram-
ble with no handicap. Both the
scrambling threesome's score
and individual scores were
totaled to give the team a com-
bined score for that hole..


Strategy played a big role in
picking the right person for the
particular holes. Each of the
players were allowed two mulli-
gans each for the round. The
players had an opportunity to
win a sleeve of golf balls on all
four par 3s by being the one
closest to the pin.

team of Greg Gentry, Jennifer
Martin, Jim Hays and Bea Kurtz
and the team of Ronnr
