1988 and 1992 Olympic reams. lifelong
swimmer Sheila Taonrmna persevered.
In 1996. before a "'home crowd" in
Atlanta. Taormina earned the gold

Her accomplishment over defeat is
inspiration enough.

Taormina said.

"I remember thinking that by 1991
I'll be reured." she said dunng a recent
phone interview. explaining that after
college she expected to quit competi-

Professional athletes and elite ana-
teurs share in the same highs and low\s
that no\ ice athletes experience in their
exercise regimens, Taormina said.
"But, I've neuer gone through long
periods of wanting to quit," she said.
And yes, despite her achievements,
the Olympian has had her own doubts
"I've been blessed," she said.
explaining that most of the pressure she
faces is self inflicted. "God gave me a
gift. If I don't use it to the best of my
ability, it should have gone to some-
body else."
Her gifts include the ability to mon-
\'ate.
In a recent interview with his sponsor
Softride, elite triathlete Patrick High, of
Sebring, credited Taormina w ith inspir-

The reminder to never give

for Heartland Triathlon 'Dream Team'


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The Heartland
Triathlon is seven days away
and rumors are surfacing that a
"Dream Team" will be fielded.
Information leaked to the
News-Sun in June from sources
close to the event's steering
committee suggest that
O1\mpic gold medalist Sheila
Taornuna. a keynote speaker for
the pre-race pasta, bash
Saiurda'. will anchor this so-
called dream team. !
"Who kno,, s what the future
has in store," Taormina said in a
recent interview, when asked
how the Heartland Triathlon
race fit'into her schedule.
Taormina earned her gold as
a member the U.S. Olympic
4x200 meter freestyle relay
swim team at the 1996 Games
in Atlanta. In 2000 she returned
to the Games in Sydney,
Australia,. and took sixth place
in the women's triathlon.
In addition to her training for
the Heartland Triathlon,
Taormina is gearing up to bid
for a spot on the U.S. Olympic
pentathlon team.
"I'm really, in 'many ways,
ready to retire," the 37-year-old
athlete and motivational speak-
er said. "But for this little chal-
lenge."
Accomplishing her "little
challenge" would mean that she
achieves competitive excel-,
lence in some new sports -
shooting an air pistol; fencing'
epee style and equestrian show'
jumping.
The other two legs of, a pen-
tathlon, in which she- has
already proven herself, are a
200 meter freestyle swim and a

run.

Shutt is the "waking up to real-
ity" member of the dream team...
His training, unlike his dedi-
cated teammates, consists of
late night partying, sleeping-in
until it's too hot to ride and cut-
ting back from two packs a day
to one.,
"I'll be ready!" he snapped,
snarling at the suggestion that
le might not be ready by Jul\

race is still seven days away.
That means I have.at least two
good days to prepare. Well,' if it
doesn't rain."
When pressed, Shutt admit-
ted the only reason he even
likes to cycle is because, in that
circle, it's OK for a guy to
shave his legs.
"Hey, before you leave, can
you fetch me another milk-
shake?" Shutt asked, not so
rhetorically, at the interview's
conclusion.
To date, he has not been seen
on a bicycle.

News-Sun staff writer Kevin J.
Shutt is thankful for the opportu-
nity to be -on Olympian Sheila
Taormina's relay team with John
Negley. Contrary to the spoofed
comments in the story, Shutt has
trained (some). Though he'll give
his all during the race, like his
teammates, Shutt hopes to just
have fun with his fellow Highlands
County aspiring athletes.

"Even at the very end in the
hospital Kinsley continued to
be very strong," Cox said. "Just
an hour or less before she
passed away she cracked a joke
at me. I just thought, 'That's my
girl so full of life, yet so
close to death:'"'.'
Though the loss has been
hard for the family especial-
ly Kinsley's older sister, Jamie,
whom Ila said "worshiped the
ground Kinsley walked on" -
it is their hope that people will
continue to keep their Kinsley's
name alive by helping other
families as they gg through sim-
ilar hardships.


"My memories of Kinsley
hurts inside my heart because I
want her to be here," Cox said.
"But those memories of her
make me smile because she was
just so fun and so funny."

Red Cross plans health, safety classes


The American Red Cross
Highlands County' Service
Center wants to help people
prepare to handle health, and
safety issues.
Health and Safety trainers
can .help businesses, schools,
homeowners asociations and
private individuals- to have as
man\ people as possible certi-
- fied in first aid, cardiopul-
monary resuscitation, and the
proper use of an- automated
external defibrillator.
Knowing how to perform the
skills isn't enough. Training
includes 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.
Once a person once gave a
breath with every 15 chest com-
pressions, now it's two breaths
for every 30.
Harriman has taught CPR for
more than 25 years, even while
a teacher in both public and pri-
vate school. He's used ii-onlh
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
training may last for ,two min-.
utes straight, he said. In reality,
a person may be doing CPR
five or seven minutes before
emergency medical services.
arrive, Harriman said. It can't
stop once it starts.
Even in the best of times,
that's a critical amount of time
to give, CPR, Harriman said.
During a hurricane in a shelter
\nLthour po%%er, phones. a nurse
or emergency medical services
,available, a person, trained in
CPR may be the only difference
between life and death for a
person, Harriman said.
"You feel inadequate even
when you are doing it. You
worry if you can do it better.
'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-

ents should have this training;
for the sake of their children.
Whenever he's invited to a baby
shower, he gives free CPR and
first aid classes as gifts:.

Special to the News-Sun
A set of new rules has gone
into effect that provide
improved protection for con-
sumers who contract with pest
control companies for termite
service.
-. All contracts issued by pest
control companies for termite
control. must now clearly tell
consumers if the contracts
cover subterranean termites,
drywood termites, or both,
according to Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson. If they don't cover
Formosan termites, a particular-
ly aggressive form of subter-
ranean termite, the'.'c6opany
hjis to clearly\ state tbato-r...
"The 'average,, homeowner'
may not understand that there
are differences in the types of
termites that can invade their
homes as well as differences in
the kinds of protections that
address each insect," ,Bronson
said. "We have found that many
people do not realize they are
not protected against one or the
other until their home is dam-
aged and it is too late
Another important change
that goes into effect immediate-
ly .is that companies that per-
form only "spot" treatments
post that information on treat-
ment stickers in the structure.
Existing homes may be treated


-. -




prior to being sold, especially
when pre-sale inspections show-
some termite activity. Sellers
may opt for a less expensive
spot treatment rather than a full
treatment. Until now the treat-
ment sticker did not have to
specify that it was a "spot"
treatment. ,
'This is- especially important
for, home buyers," Bronson
said. "Buyers of existing homes
may be told that a house has
been treated before they buy it,
but not informed the treatment
was only to a limited part of the
building. Now they will know if
the treatment was full or par-
tial."
ilhcir changes in the co.,.inl-if
fule require that pest .cntrol1
companies retreat infestations
covered by a contract within 90
days .(180 days for multi-unit
structures). Previously there
was no time limit on when the
service had to be provided.
Companies are now also pro-
hibited from denying re-treat-
ment or repairs if they were
aware of a construction defect
or other condition conducive to
termite infestation, such as a
water leak and did not inform
the property owners and allow
them to repair it.
Nearly all 'contracts have
limitations and' exclusions
under which treatment or repair
does not have to be done, for


example if there is a plumbing
leak. Prior to this rule change, a
company could be aware of a
defect, collect renewals for sev-
eral years and then deny re-
treatment or repairs when they
became necessary. Pest control
companies have a year to
chanLe theii contracts to reflect
'these requirellient
"The practices these rules
require are already' common to
all good pest control compa-
nies, but' we need thede rules to
prevent a few from taking
advantage of contract loopholes
and not protecting consumers
from termite damage," Bronson,
said.
Bronson says the rule change
information is particularly valu-
:able to consumers. right now
because July is the drywood ter-
mite season and homeowners
need to take steps to protect
their homes from these damag-
ing pests while at the same time
protecting their rights in pest
control contracts.
Consumers can get more
information on termite protec-
tion, the difference between
subterranean or drywood ter-
mites, or file a complaint
against a pest control company,,
by calling (800) HELPFLA
(800-435-7352) oi by logging

their upcoming race.
Democrat Eric Copeland is

won't get much attention until
after the Sept. 5 primary.
With an annual budget that
now surpasses $352 million, the
agriculture department retains a
wide variety of responsibilities
ranging from checking the
accuracy of fuel pumps at serv-
ice stations,' inspecting the
state's meat, poultry and citrus
and managing the state's forests
and consumer protection pro.-
grams.
"His big mission has been the
citrus canker program, which
has been a catastrophic failure,"
said Copeland, who concedes
his agriculture background is
limited to visits to his grandpar-
ents' Illinois farm during his.
youth. "We've spent more than
a billion in state and federal
money and (face) perhaps
another billion in pending law-
suits."
It's not the first time Bronson
has had the citrus issue lobbed
his way by an opponent. Four
years ago, Miami school librar-
ian David Nelson tried a similar
tactic, but it didn't stick to the
affable Bronson. The decade-

Harris to have surgery to remove ovarian mass


Associated Press
TAMPA U.S. Rep.
Katherine Harris announced
Friday she will undergo surgery
later this month to remove an
ovarian mass, which will be,
tested to determine if it 'is
malignant.
=- The 4'9-3acr-old C'o'nLic-
woman, who is campaigning
for the Republican nomination-
for U.S. Senate, will visit
Walter Reed Army Medical
Center in Washington'Monday


for preoperative testing, said
her campaign office said in a
statement.
"Doctors say it has low risk
for malignancy," said Chris
Ingram, Harris' campaign
spokesman. r c .' :
A minimally invasive surgi-
cal procedure to remove the
mass is scheduled for July 17.
Doctors will test it to see if it
is malignant or benign.
Harris said she was looking


forward to a speedy recovery,

rare political specie since he
claims not to aspire to higher
office. His two Cabinet col-
leagues, Attorney General
Charlie Crist and Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher, are battling for the
Republican nomination for gov-
ernor.
Copeland originally wanted
to run for the CFO job, but
deferred to Tampa-area banker
Alex Sink, who is unopposed
for the Democratic nomination
in that race.
"It's time for a change and
time for Democrats in the state'
to make a little bit of our own
sunshine," said Copeland, who
knows he'll have far less to
spend on getting his name
known. "We've got to do it one
handshake at a time."
Copeland, however, has no
illusions abput the amount of
help he'll get from the party. He
has reported.$106,000 in cam-
paign contributions, while
Bronson has received more than
$800,000 as they prcpal f.i t[Il
Nov. 7 general election.
"I didn't get into 'this race
with the idea the Democratic
Party of the state is, going to bail
me out," he said. "We're up
against it when it, comes to
fund-raising in this state."
State Democratic Party
Chairman Karen Thurman con-
ceded the party might not have
a lot of money in a race where
its candidate faces an
entrenched incumbent.
"Part of the resp'onibilii\ of
entering the race is to be able to
gather support and raise money
to promote themselves,"
Thurman said.
I Nelson faced the same hand-
icap when he challenged
Bronson in 2002.,

SEAT
Continued from 1A
years,' and been the secretary
for the Istokpoga Marsh
Watershed Advisory Committee
for 14 years.
He is on the board of direc-
tors of the Highlands
Independent Bank.
Bates is running at this time
because BuJllard stepped down
and people had come to him
asking him to run.,
"I see a void with the depar-
ture of Bob Bullard," he said. "I
want to continue what he had in
mind. I haven't always agreed
with him, but he's been an
excellent leader."
Bates sees the county facing
several crucial issues in the next
few years, most of'them having
to do with growth, or preparing
for it, or dealing with its reper-
cussions.
S He is particularly. concerned
about the county's road system.
It is too difficult to reach
U.S. 27 from the east or west he
said, adding that it would only
get worse as developers put in
more tracts, v which would' have
to funnel more traffic into
already cro% ded arteries.
He also believes' the -county
will have to find a way to help
with what he called, "work
force housing" and quality .of
life issues. He hopes the county
can retain its current, more laid-
back, more rural lifestyle.
"It's a desirable place to
'come to," he said. "Wehave to
guard against wrecking it."
He hopes to enlist volunteer.
citizens in that battle. He points
out that there is a great deal of
retired talent who might be
enticed into helping or planning
the future.
Bill Sayles
Bill Sayles was born in
Bloomington, Ohio, 67 years
ago.
He went directly into the
army from high school, retiring
as a first sergeant in 1980. For
most of his career he was sta-
tioned in Germany and dealt
with supply.
Following his retirement, he
joined the civil service and con-
tinued to work for the army in
Germany.
As a civilian he was a recre-
ation specialist and oversaw 14
different facilities on various
army bases,- all serving children,
and youth from 6-19 years of


age.
He has studied bookkeeping
at Ohio State University, but
did not graduate.
Sayles and his wife of 39
years, Kreszenz she prefers
Cindy, moved to Lake Placid
seven years ago; after reading
about the town in an English
language newspaper in
Germany.
Settling in at Placid Lakes,
Sayles became involved in the
community and eventually
found himself serving on the
board of directors, first as vice
president, then, for the last three
,years, as president.
"It's in my blood now," he
said with a laugh, when asked
why he was running at 'this
time.
He cited -concerns about
growth and affordable housing
as being two issues of particular
interest to him.
Regarding specific plans,
Sayles said he would be pre-
senting more detailed ideas in
. time.
Bullard's decision to step
down had caught him by sur-
prise, Sayles said. He had only
just, made his decision and
wanted to be able to put more

Sayles quickly added, "I.
have the highest respect for Bob
Bullard, and I'd like to be quot-
ed on that."
"I want to be a part of a com-
mission that helps people," he
said. "The \%hole time I was on

to do that.
"Growth is going to happen.
We need it, but we need to have
more control over it.
"My favorite saying.is, 'You
have to change with change, or
change will change you."
Sayles indicated one reason
he is running is because he
hopes to bring people together.
"The: whole time I've been
president and \ ice president (of
the Placid Lake board) my
motto is 'What we cannot do
alone, we can do together,'"' he
said.
Then he added, "I will sign

NEGRON
Continued from 1A
"One of the number one
issues on people's minds are
sexual predators who use sites
like Myspace.com to prey on
children," he said, praising the
work of Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd, who recently head-
ed up a cybersting operation,
leading to 20 arrests and the
continued 'investigation, of
about 100 others.
Negron said that if elected,
his priorities would also' include
protecting consumers from
fraud, identity theft, and price
gouging, as well as other con-
sumer related issues. All of
which are important to the citi-
zens of the Sunshine State.
Furthermore, Negron said he
is a strong proponent of person-
al freedoms.
"We don't get our rights from
the government," Negron said.
"They are inherently ours we
just give the government some
limited power to serve and pro-
tect us."
Though not something
addressed on his Web site, or in
his campaign literature, Negron
said that immigration is another


hot topic among citizens of
Florida. "
"The public wants someone
to make sure that citizens don't
get run out of the gym,. so to
speak," he said. "Florida is a
welcoming state, but people
feel you should come here
,legally. The way I describe it is,
'If you take your kids to Disney
and wait three hours for a ride
and someone comes along and
cuts in line, it's just natural to
want to physically hurt them.
There's nothing discriminatory
about it.'"
He believes that immigrants
should comply with the laws of
the land, as required by all legal
residents.
Negron has Grimsley's full
endorsement.
"I believe that he's well qual-
ified for the position and as a
representative and chairman of
appropriations, particularly
judiciary appropriations, he's
very well versed in rule of law,"
she said. "Most impressive
about Joe is that he will always
give direct answers, whether
good or bad. In political life.

(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 of 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 Dump or a wet/dry vacuum.


iar with state governmental
issues."
During his campaign,
Negron has made it a point
when visiting a new area to
check out every Chick-fil-A and
courthouse in that order.
Unfortunately, none of the
three counties he toured on
Thursday offered his preferred
dining experience, but at least
all had courthouses.
"Courthouse architecture is a
hobby of mine," he said. "I've
been to about 50 out of 67 in the
state and have to say that this
(Highlands County's) is one of
the most attractive and most
efficient in terms of use of
space."
Anyone wishing to learn
more about Negron, his cam-
paign qualifications, experi-
ences, and stance on various
issues, can visit his Web site at
www.joenegron.com.
He assures voters that he will
work hard for them in the court-
room leading prosecution and
law enforcement efforts, and
that as a Cabinet member will
strive to safeguard Florida's
financial security and: unique
environment.

Crystal Nails polishes a new image


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Security system installers need to be able to fold themselves into knots. Tim Rossmann, who is installing
a carbon monoxide monitor, has one foot resting on a ladder rung and one foot resting on a hot water
heater. Scrunched into the back of a walk-in closet, he was leaning one way, and having to work by twist-
ing to his right.


BULGE
Continued from 11A
way around the air-condition-
ing duct work to arrive at a
junction where the houses
wings came together. That's
where we had to drop to our,
knees and crawl through a
small hole to get to the control
box.
.Only I didn't.
I should have taken a hint,
from Rossmann before we,
even started. He had emptied
his pockets telling me he didn't
want to lose anything.
What he wvas also doing was
getting rid of anything extra so
he could fit in small spaces.
.And believe me, if the bulge of
a wallet makes a difference,
you can imagine how small the
space is.
But there I '%as. mN pockets
bristling w ith pens and note-
books, a honking big camera
with flash attachment hanging
around my neck. no waN would'
I get through the hole intact.
And remember, %we were bal-
anced on the narrow edges of
two-by-fours, on the othei side
of a dry wall ceiling.
I stayed put and waited for
Rossmann to reappear.
Later. dow% n below, standing
on a ladder in a bedroom clos-
et, one foot resting on a hot
%water heater, one shoulder
lodged into the comer w here
the ceiling and %wall met, his
head tucked back at an angle in
order to see. Rossmann con-
nected the wire that ran to the
carbon, monoxide monitor.
I wasn't helping him as a


courses\ to his client.
Here we were, in her house
first thing in the morning. But
it wasn't onl\ that.
She had a 5-month-old baby,
had only just moved in and
the movers had been a week
late so there were boxes
scattered all over the house, in
variouss stages of unpacking.
Two %women were helping her
as we scuttled about.
There she was, alone among
strangers, in a house she was
still finding her way in.
The only option was to get
the job done as quickly) as pos-
sible. That left me out of the
picture, because I don't care
lho\\ skilled a person is.'the
first time \we do any thing, we
tend to be slow) er in doing it.
And I'm not so skilled. So
Rossmann did the installation.
As he worked he tried to
explain to me ho\w the system
worked.
(I kept thinking magic.)
But this is what I learned.
Security s\ stems of this r.pe
ones -which ha'e an interac-
tike component are operated
through telephone land lines
(cellular technology is on the
wa\ but that's another story i.
T) pically, phone sen ice'
runs from jack to jack.
Rossmann said it's called a
dais\ chain anything wrong
effects the system all down the
line.
In'the past. Rossmann said,
security systems were wired'
into a home in that way and
because it is less expensive.
s6me developers still fa'or the
method.
The drawback. Rossmann


said, is in troubleshooting -i
the problem can be an) where
on the line.!
The ADT system Safew a\
Protection installs, Rossmann
said, uses a different method.
Called structured wiring,
each component is \%ired
directly into a central control
box not to be confused with
the keypad w which controls
nothing.
Structured wiring makes
verN sophisutcated sy stems pos-
sible.
The future holds a pronuse
of more than burglarN or fire
alarms. Rossmann said He
talked of a day \ hen houses
will be able to regulate their
0\\n temperature and refrigera-
(ors \ ill communicate \ ith
their owners.
But I couldn't help thinking
ias Rossmann talked of a sleek
.science fiction future) about
Athe poor human being who
%would still have to s \eat and
squeeze into an impossible
space, at an incredible angle, in
an old-fashioned way. Just to
make all that fantastic.

AVON PARK Owner Gary Nguyen and his
wife Natalie. Lee recently opened Crystal Nails
with the goal of comfort, cleanliness and service.
The setting is contemporary and exudes luxu-
riating relaxation, starting with a cool beverage
and hot towels. Their state-of-the-art chairs are
comfortable and relaxing, providing a back mas-
sage along with the soothing jet system of the
water on the feet.
"Women want to feel beautiful and a pedicure
helps. Everyone wants a sexy toe for summer,"
Nguyen said.
The five Spa Joy pedicure chairs are a state-of-
the-art pipe less system which keeps the pedicure
tub sanitized. Because it flushes away all water it
eliminates bacteria and prevents fungus.
"I'm very finicky about cleanliness and serv-
ice. Cleanliness was our first priority," Nguyen
said. .
The four certified nail technicians specialize in
ultraviolet gels (which give protection from the
sun's harmful ultraviolet ram s.) pink and whites,
acrylics, and nail art. For the manicure, the hands
are first cleaned and shaped. Hot towels relax,
and n\arm paraffin wa\ removes dead skin for a
softer, more touchable hand. The JUV gels create
minimal damage to a nail. Besides the beneficial
UV shield, they create a clear, shinN and natural
look.
"For special occasions and events like wed-
dings this is a great gift. In the office %women
want to look pretty and professional. When they
feel beautiful, they look more elegant and feel
good inside," Nguyen said.


A client has nail tips put applied Crystal Nail's in
Avon-Park.

Nguyen offers two types of waxing -4- honey
and sensitive skin. He feels any woman can ben-
efit from this. % whether it's a chin, eyebrows, lip
area, or legs that need special care.
" Also offered are 30-nunute or one-hour facial
massages. And the\ can specially treat acne and
facial dark spots.
"When a person has had a stressful, hectic day
or an emotional trauma. the\ can come here and
be pampered %ithi candlelght and music and a
relating atmosphere. All our products are natural
and fruit based. We scrub. cleanse, use masks and
loners, and end u nth the last step being a shoulder

-Think height, filler and spiller.
When you're creating flowerpots, con-
sider height, filler and spiller. Plant a
variety that will grow at least two,
times as tall as the container, fill, ift
with plants that will grow to no more
than half of the height of the taller
plants, -and then plant a variety ihat
will cascade over the pot.
When it comes to annuals, pack
them in. When you createflowerpots,
pack your annuals in because they will,
become root-bound and grow up and
over the pots. You'll get drama and. a
beautiful arrangement, according to
Kolls.-

wonderful tools available that can
make gardening .easier for anyone,
including seniors. Bud-Eze tools,
which can be found on the Internet, are
,a good option, as are bionic gloves
(Www.bionicgloves.com), according to
Kolls. In-' addition, the Arthritis
Foundation has a product and services
directory for senior gardeners and oth-'
ers with mobility problems. Log on to:'
www.arthritis.org.
Garden right outside your front
door or back door. Container garden-
ing allows seniors access to flowers or

vegetables in one pot and also gives
them the height .that helps make gar-
dening easier for them..

Decisions ... now and 10 years from now


A writer/editor that I know
talks a lot about making deci-
sions, especially when it comes
to the writing life.
"Decide where you want to
be 10 years from now," he has
said at least once. From there,
the theory is, you make deci-
sions on a day-to-day basis to
make that goal happen.
For example, I've decided
that in 10 years I want to be a
best-selling author. Now, if I
simply wait 1.0 years and then
start writing, it won't happen.
I'm having to make decisions
now regarding my use of time,
getting my act together, study-
ing and practicing so that by the
time those 10 years go by, I will
have the skills I need to achieve
that goal.
This, of .course, assumes I
don't write a best selling novel
before those 10 years are up.
Again, unless I decide to work
at it, it won't happen ever -
not in two years, five years, 10
years, or 50.


Impact fees are

necessary
Editor:
The numerous public hear-
ings have confirmed thi, con-
clusion: Impact fees are essen-
tial if the Highlands Coiuni\
government is to elfectliel)
plan for future grow th The
demand for infrastructure and
services will require funding
far beyond what current taxes
and fees will produce. It is
clearly evident that those creat-
ing the demand should help to
provide the resources to pro-
duce the required infrastructure
and 'services in the years to
come.
The current formula for fees,'
especially transportation, insti-.
gates sharp protests from
developers and others, claim-
ing that such large fees \will dis-
courage development and large
corporations froin coming to
Highlands 'County. This may be
true, but the reader should con-
sider the costst of the required
infrastructure and services
upon demand in coming ears.
Even when inflation and other
factors are calculated in. the
costs of those elements, they
will still fall short of the even-
tual cost of actual construc tion.
The. basic purpose of impact
fees is to ease the burden on
home owners and businesses
already here (some ha'e been
here for up to 50 earss, that,
have paid for others' infrastruc-,
ture during the ensuing' years.
-even after they have already)
paid for their own infrastrup-
ture in ) ears gone b ,
Yes, there is a concern that
the impact fees \ ill cause a
burden for developers and busi-
ness people wanting g to build in
Highlands Countsi: hoeter.
they must also remember the
"little people" and small busi-
nesses who received fuo- subsi-
dies when they c:ime here in
the past.
A key factor to note is that
the cost of future needs. 1ill be
greater than any. impact fee
schedule formulated by, the
county commnnission The time
to defend one's turf and/or to
grab for one's 'self whatever
profits at the expense of others
must come to an end. ;
The critical issue is that an
impact fee ordinance must be
enacted (with essential com-
promises) to ensure practical
growth and equal responsibility
for all. Highlands County can
be a role model for other small
counties in this state. Why not
aim for that goal?
This writer appreciates and
acknowledges the great effort,
time and energy those on the
impact fee committee and ,the
county commission and staff
have expended on this endeav--
or. Hopefully, the public, devel-
opers and business people will
harbor the same perception.

This makes LAURA
sense when you
think about it, and Laur
not just if you are,
like me, seeking to
build a career writ-
ing fiction. All big goals or
decisions, if you will will not
happen without making hun-
dreds of little decisions on the
way.
For example, let's say you
decide you want to be skinny.
Now, for some people, such as
my oldest, that is not a hard
decision. For most of us, if we
decide we want to be skinny, it.
means making a whole lot of
other decisions. It means decid-
ing to exercise. It meafis decid-
ing to eat right. It also means
that a lot of us, who say we want
to be skinny aren't following
through with the decision
because we decide we like cake
better.
Think about marriage.. You
decide, one day, you want to
spend the rest of your life with


is LOOK

a Ware


someone. I wonder
sometimes if
young people real-
ize the number of


decisions you have
to make for that to
happen. You have to decide to
put up with that person's snor-
ing. You have to sometimes let;
them pick what to have for din-
ner. Sometimes you have to
decide to keep your mouth shut
when what you really want to
do is rip their head off.
It isn't deciding to marry that
does the relationship in. It's all
the decisions to make it long
lasting that trips people up in
the end.
We make small decisions
every day. We decide when we
will get up in the morning.
What we'will eat. will go. How we will spend our
time.
We choose what to read,
what to watch, who to spend
time with. Many of these deci-
sions are made without con-


sciously thinking about them.
Habits can be described as
small decisions we have made'
so often they have become
automatic.
That's scary if you think
about it. We make decisions
every day that will affect our
lives in the long term, and many
of them are made without our
giving them a second thought or
consideration.
Do you want to know what
your life will be like in 10
years? Look at the decisions
you are making today.
Do you want to change your
life? Think about what little
decisions you will have to make
for that to happen.
Then, decide. It may take 10
years to reach your goal. But
,make the right small decisions,
and you'll get there.

'^'I'MPW
Act


Try to be part

of the solution
Editor:
One of the writers in a recent
issue of the News-Sun seemed
to. be endorsing Ted Kennedy.
All we need for this country to
be- in a complete disastrou(,s
condition is to have a few more
leaders like .Ted KennedN.
Nancy Polosi and Hot ard
Dean, to name a few.
He \\as comparing the num-
ber of sei\ icemen in world d War
I to Our loss in Iraq. It seems to
me, that's like comparing
lemons to peaches. '
This. is a totally different
kind of war. Some things are
very much alike. We stayed
' until the job \wjs finished and
just as then. we have to consid-
er the consequences if we'don't'
finish the job.
Jtit recently, a group was
indicted for their plans to
destroy some of our most
important buildings; they were
linked to Al Quida. This war is
something we can't end by
bringing our service people,
home. It will continue whether.
or not we're there and is sure to
Reach our shores without our.
'.intervention. I
Indeed, it had already made a,
good start when we got
involved and I might add, it
was our president's ingenuity,
that caught the above men-
tioned group. Our president is.
not the cause of this war. He is
doing his best to keep our
country from more. turmoil.
I would hope we would all
try to be part of the solution
rather than contributing .to the
problem, which is what We're
doing when we send. a negative
message. I'm sure that encour-
ages the terrorists and is no
help to our people who are risk-
ing their lives to keep us safe.
When people expose things
that are being done to put these
criminals away who are con-
tributing to the war, that is very


detrimental to our purpose. Of
course, if the enemy knows
every .,detail of our plans. it
gives him a leg up They just
change their course of action..
That is sheer ignorance.
I News can be a help or it can
be a hindrance. No one can pre-
dict the cost of a war from the
beginning. Our president has
made it very clear that uki deci-
sions would not be :made by
plitic.s. 'I pai that none of us
will let politics influence how
we vote.
Things can be much worse
than the', are We are the deter-
iniung lacoi Think long and
hard before casting your vote.
and 'do a lot,of pray ing. We
have a lot of filth that needs
remo\ inli from our society I'mn,
sure our Lord is ter\ unhappy
about many thins in our socie-
ty. Pleasing him is more impor-
tant than personal gain. "Seek
ye first the kingdom of God

Nelson's office

comes through

Editor:
My name is Julia Newell and
I'm writing today to let every-
one in Precinct 15 and the sur-
rounding areas in the jurisdic-
tion of Representative Mark
Foley know just how much
"representation" we really
have.
I had a time sensitive prob-
.fem with a federal office and
wrote a certified letter to Mr.
Foley requesting congressional
assistance from him. This let-
ter was sent to his office on
June 9, 2006. I only had until
June 26, 2006, to respond to


'Bias, like beauty, is often in the eye of the beholder.

Facts are your firewall against bias.'

TOM BROKAW, former NBC News anchor, 2004


this problem. I,. rete,\ed my -
postal return receipt. on June
19, 2006, and then a phone call
on June 21, 2006, from' his
office representative advising
me that "She didn't think that
Mr. Foley's office could help
me because they did not have a,
good rapport with the Office of
,,Personnel Management".,
When I asked' her what this
had to do with me, a tax -paying
citizen, she replied that I just
tould not get a good result if
Mr Fole\'s ottice tried to help
me \ th this problem and that I
should contact Senator Bill
Nelson's office. I asked her if
she could send the letter on to
Senator Nelson's office and she
very cuh1Y told me that they
don't normally do that, but she
would fax the information to
Nelson's office. She called me
back totell me that she did send
the fax, however I never found
out what office she faxed the
information to since Senator
Nelson's assistant never
received it.
To say that I was taken aback
by this information is a major
understatement. I thought that"
my representative was sup-,
posed to "represent" his dis-
trict.'
I feel that this was due to an
article that appeared shortly
after Tim Mahoney and Max
Cleland visited our town in
May for a breakfast and meet-
ing with our local VFW 4300 to
let local voters know that
Mahoney was running against
the 'incumbent Mark Foley for
State Representative. I was
quoted as saying "Thank God
someone is finally running
against Mr. Foley." I still stand
behind my statement now more
than ever.
I contacted Senator Bill
Nelson's office and a ,lovely
lady named Marcie was
shocked when I explained what
had just happened with Foley's
office. She immediately offered
to assist me by writing a letter
on my behalf to OPM and did
so the very next morning. ,
This situation has solidified
my opinion of politics here in
this state and the nation.
Remember this at election
time!

Zen and the art of pool maintenance


As I may have
mentioned, my fami- A.
ly and I are relative .
newcomers to the A' J
Heartland, so we i
were all pretty excit- I
ed to be moving into I .
a house with a pool.
The only pools we
had had access to in
the past had been CHIP's SHOT
located at places like ----
Robious Racquet Mosby L. 'Chip'
Club or the Spring Wigginton Jr.
Ridge Community -
Center.
Granted, they were


nice, big pools with lots of cool,
crystal clear water. But to get to
them, you had to drive a couple,
of miles each way and tried to
time your visits to avoid the
"busy times." Once you were
there, you swam around for
awhile, then toweled off and
went home.
In our new house (new to us,
anyway), we not only had a big
pool right in our own back yard,
but a boat house, dock and
water access. It seemed like
heaven. We went right out and
bought floats, etc. We vividly
imagined our evenings and
weekends spent floating and
splashing in the pool. Man!
What a life!
I am sure those of you who
are native to the area know
where I am going with this.
A few days after taking pos-
session of the house, I noticed
some 'sand' in the.bottom of the
pool. The next day, darned if it
didn't look like the 'sand' had
multiplied, but was still not
concerned. A few days later, I
started to get a little worried.
Was I imagining things, or
had the.problem gotten worse?
The 'sand' increased greatly.
The water was still clear and


looked pretty good to
me, so I decided to
take the brush thing
and see if I could
push all of the sand
into one area -and
then figure out how
to work the vacuum
thing. Well, the water
turned very cloudy
and didn't clear up
by the next morning.
"You probably just
disturbed some
residue," my sister
told me via tele-
phone. "You should


take a sample, into a pool store
and have them test it for you."
The next morning, I stopped
by Pool Paradise, just a few
blocks down from the News-
Sun and handed my sample
over to Julie Kurtz, the propri-
etor.
"I have cloudy pool water," I
tell her.
"What kind of pool is it?" she
asks.
"Fiberglass, in ground," I
say.
"Is the water yellow or
green?"
"It looked like sand to me."
"So that wouldbe yellow?"
"Yep, but maybe only a light
yellow."
"What size pool is it?"'
I stare back blankly.
"Is it a big pool?"
"Not too big," I tell her,
"maybe 12-by-18."
She recommended that I take
a picture of the pool and bring it
with me the next time I came in.
"The size of the pool lets me
know how much water we're
dealing with, therefore, how
much treatment is -needed to
correct the problem."
She took my Tupperware
container of pool water and pro-


ceeded to perform her magic,
using various droppers and bot-
tles.
"You have algae," she tells
me.
"OK," I say.
She writes out a prescription
for the cure and hands it over. I
look down at it and again stare
back blankly.
"Do you have acid? It looks
like this," pointing to a gallon-
size jug of liquid. By this time,
I think she has caught on to the
fact that I may be more than a
little 'pool-challenged.'
"Nope," I say.
She continues asking about
all.kinds of things that sounded
very much like Greek to me,
things like 'shock' and 'algae
killer,' etc. She hooked me up
with all of the chemicals and
walked me through what I
needed to do over the next sev-
eral days. I felt very much like I
was back in chemistry class.
For the record, I hated chem-
istry.
My heart sunk when she told
me I needed to bring in another
sample of water after the treat-
ments were completed.
"You mean I don't just throw
these things in and everything
goes back to the way it should,
be?"
A few days later, l am back
with my sample and several
pictures from my pool. She
looks at the photos and
observes that the pool looks to
be considerably bigger than 12-
by-18.
"Yes, it is actually 18-by-
about-39," I tell her. I have
clearly established that I may
not be the brightest lamp in the
store, I believe.
To make a long story just a
little bit shorter, Julie has led
me through the minefield of'


pool upkeep. I walked in there
not knowing a thing, including
that there was an external
pump, an external filter, how
the circulating water helps
clean the pool (unless you cut
the switch off because you are
afraid of using too much water,
which of course I did), that the
floating chlorine thing is impor-
tant to keep filled properly, and
how to work a pool vacuum
(actually, I still haven't mas-
tered that art, but I'm feeling
bad enough as it is).
I think we are getting there.
My pool looks great, and I don't
see any weird stuff growing in
it. My family loves it.
I hope. you noticed that not
once did I complain about the
price of everything, partly
because I felt like it was actual-
ly pretty reasonable for all of
the stuff I needed, and mostly
because Julie showed the
Patience of Job in working with
me. Still,, she volunteered the
following advice, and this is the
true moral to the story: "It is far
more expensive to correct a
problem, than it is to maintain a
pool properly."
The old Midas commercial
came to mind, "you can pay me
now, 'or you can pay me later."
I swore to be diligent in my
attentions to my newly healthy
pool.
I have not traveled down to
the boathouse or dock. The
wood looks a little bleached out
to me, and I don't think I want
to know what it is going to take
to fix that problem.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Steadfast


and true
Accompanying the joyful
memories of our first year
of marriage are some
painful, stressful times. My
husband's childhood asthma
returned with a vengeance
that year and I was intro-
duced for the first time to
this debilitating illness.
I learned many things;
like remaining calm during
those episodes. My anxiety
only caused more distress. I
learned to watch for what
might precipitate an attack.
I tackled household clean-
finess with renewed vigor
when I considered that dust
could be a contributing fac-
tor. It took us three years to
figure out that environmen-
tal mold caused the worst of
the problems.
As I think back. I see
character traits in my hus-
band that really .helped us,
through those difficult
years: character traits that
ha\e steadily% deepened.
Though illness affects the
"\hole family, Ken took it in
stride, setting a wonderful
example for our sons and
for me. He didn't like being
sick and wanted his health'
back. But, he didn't letit
color how he treated us.'We
were never subjected to an
angry, unkind husband and
father.
He especially remained
steadfast and true to his
faith in Jesu Christ. I admit
that I questioned a lot of.
things during that faith-
walk. I tried to figure it out
and find solutions.
E entuall,. his steadiness
and trust spilled oer onto
me.
Together we started look-
S ing for the blessings and
watching for God's little
surprises along the way. The
Lord neter disappointed us.
It makes me think of
Joseph in the Old
Testament. How devastating
his life was in so many
waNs: His brothers sold him
into sla'ervy; he fell out of
favor with his master and
spent years in prison when
falsely accused. But. in all
of these circumstances, he
chose to steadfastly walk bs
faith.
When at last everything
came full circle. Joseph %was
put in charge of Egypt and
eventually saved even his
own family from famine.
When his brothers realized.
who he was and the authori-
ty and pow er he held, they
trembled in fear. Later, he
said to them, "Don't be
afraid. Am I in the place of
God? You intended to harm
me, but God intended it for
good, the sa\ ing of many
lives," based on Genesis 50:
19, NIV.
Though our circum-
stances were different, my
husband's attitude reflected
a similar faith and trust in a
God who would bnng good
from what had been trying
and often confusing times.
How good it is to look
into his.noble eyes and see
truth there. How wonderful
to feel safe in the midst of
life's storms because of my
husband's steadfast faith.
Today, on his birthday, I cel-
ebrate the steadfast, true and
noble character of my hus-
band and the joy it is to
share my life with him.
Selah.

Men at age 19 and women at age 21 can go on missions with The Church of
Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
The men serve for two years and the women 18 months. Because this is at
their own expense, it is obviously a calling, requiring a deep personal commit-
ment of their belief.
From Highlands County. the following are presently preaching the gospel to
the world: Randell Antonio Betancourt left May 2005 for the McAllen. Texas

* Fitness. Ever try it. ?
It require _s commitientl, consistency'
and some creativ'irv to achieve lasting
results loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their
souls can't per inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident, loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month, the
News-Sun will feature a series of true
stories coinpiled by correspondent Jan
Merop. The, y're designed to encourage'

time!

Laughter in the walls needs to be a
reality not merely a concept. For when
humor accompanies difficult situations,
a light-hearted atmosphere prevails.
It didn't take Peter and Elaine long to
;figure that out. But. sometimes such pos-
itive vibrations come after unexpected
explosions.
Peter's health continued to deterio-
rate. Not only was he confined to a,
wheelchair, but now he had to go to dial-
ysis'three times a week.
This was a pretty stressful way to
spend three days of the week; both for
Peter and Elaine. Peter's appointment
was at 6 a.m. Consequently, Elaine
awakened Peter at 4 a.m., helped him


with his morning care
rituals, got him
dressed, fixed him
breakfast along with _"'{-
:being read\ herself to
get him there on time. a? "
Into the already e hec-
tic morning. she added
one more responsibili--
ty. Thinking ahead to
their evening meal, W1-
she began preparing graphicby:FREDKOE
some white beans. She
put them into Peter's favorite heavy ket-
tle he had loved using when he could
still get about. Turning them on high to
boil she figured she'd turn them off
before leaving and continue the process
when she got home.
Elaine dropped' Peter off at his
appointment and returned home. When
she opened the door, the house was full
of smoke. She quickly ran into the
kitchen to turn off the offending burner
- not completely taking in the scene
before. her.
Then she cried, "Oh, my birds," and
ran into the room where she kept her
cockatiels. Thankfully, they were still
covered up since she had left the house.
so early. She left them covered until she
could clear the house of smoke.
In an effort to get everything blowing


and clearing, she
opened all of the win-
,,, ,dows and turned on the
fans to suck the smoke
out of the house. Only
then did Elaine return
to inspect the kitchen.
The dismal scene,
included Peter's
,l^ favorite pot melted into
the burner. Dry white
HLEFREWSSUN beans. had popped out
all over the kitchen
when the water evaporated. To make
matters worse, when she lifted the pot,
the bottom stuck to the burner while the
rest of it lifted up. The remaining beans
cascaded all over the stove.
Once the smoke had cleared, she went
to the hardware store, bought a new
burner and returned to restore her
kitchen.
When she'picked Peter up she wasted
no time in telling him what happened. At
first he was scared the house had burned
down. But, after the shock wore off, he
, simply said, "That's my favorite pot!"
"This was one story I never lived
down," Elaine said. "But, thankfully, it
never became an offensive thing
between us (despite the loss of his
favorite pot)."
Rather Peter reminded her or told the


Warm-up time
A-sense of humor can be a saving
grace. Though situations in them-
selves may not be funny, a chuckle
and a silly grin can diffuse the a%%k-
wardness- and create a lighthearted
memory.

Sit-up and take notice
W-hen there are special needs, it's
easier to become serious and lose
some- of our fun-loving natures. In
marriage, a little humor helps a lot in
any situation.

Curl-up together
A serious incident turned humor-
ous will give you that knowing look
between one another when the store'
is about to be told or be remembered
providing another type of intima-
cy.

Scooping up some sweet, cool treats in library


If you'd come from a family
where mother always planned
the dessert first, then you'd.
understand why I have a sweet
tooth. Actually, I think every
tooth I have is a sweet tooth,
and my favorite dessert choice
has to be ice cream. How did
those pioneers live without it?
Thomas Jefferson traveled to
France in 1784 and was intro-
duced to a number of exotic
foods, such as ice cream, maca-
roni and cheese, and tomatoes.
Jefferson then introduced them
to America and we are forever
grateful for his willingness to
try new foods.
Colleen Reece tells us in her
book "What Was. it Before it
Was Ice Cream?," just what
goes into making this cold treat.
Other fact books to take home
are "Ice Cream Treats: The
Inside Scoop" or "Ice Cream:
The Cold Creamy Treat."
Check out oUr cookbook
shelves and you'll find most


have recipes that use
ice cream or give
directions on making
it. One example is
"Meals for Two in
Just 15 Minutes,"
which includes a
demonstration of
preparation of ice
cream crepes. Enjoy
our video "An Ice
Cream Show" that
takes you to ice
cream parlors from
Vermont to 'Hawaii.

to a farm where he finds out
what each of the animals does

G.C. Warner's Boxcar

"Ghouls Don't Scoop

Let your little one's imagina-
tion go to the dogs with the tale
"Spike and Cubby's Ice Cream
Island Adventure." Heather,
Sellers' shaggy dog story
involves two dogs getting
caught in a storm while trying
to sail to their dream destination
- Ice Cream Island.
Even a very grown up Janet
Evanovich works the cold stuff
into one of her fiction stories,


'First we need a cone, nice and crunchy, then we

need some ice cream, sweet and yummy. Scoop 'em

on, stack 'em on up to the sky. We love ice cream,

my, oh my!'

FAMILY VALUES

People often talk about t,,hi stance of family values.
sometimes e'en suggesting tbat he family is deteriorating.
It is perhaps true that the traditionala" family, composed of
one man and one woman joined in marriage and ha\ ing
children, is not necessarily the norm nowadays. In fact.
statistics indicate a significant increase in the nuimbei or
single-parent families, blended families, and othei
., tL(Fmatilons of the traditional family in our societytoday, .
necessarily a "deterioration" of the family, dris, '
:" y i ly structure merely changing to reflect the demriids
'f"Wod rn life? If we look to the Bible for enlightenment'
here. we are unlikely to find any unambiguous help

Firstly. the Bible itself illustrates an eolution in the concept
of the family. In the Old Testament., we see man\ examples
of polygamy, and kinship relations were certainlI not w hat
%we think of them today. .o marry each other and
how people "got married ,ged considerably o er
the centuries. In the Bibih Is us that "whoever does
the % ill of my Father in y brother, and sister,
and mother." (Matthew I ile it may be tempting to
see this as signaling Jesu for the nuclear family,
perhaps the more sensibi action is that Jesus is
trying to extend the cone family so that it includes
all of our fellow human that God must come
before family.


So, the next time we are

Bowfin: A relic species of a prehistoric



fish family in Europe, North America


SThe bowfin is a relic species
of a prehistoric fish family (the
primitive ray-finned fish); fossil
remains have been found
throughout Europe and North
America.
Today, the bowfin and gar are
two of the freshwater fishes still
extant that existed, almost
unchanged from their original
form, when the great dinosaurs
roamed the earth.
The bowfin is a relatively
large fish commonly measuring
between two and three feet and
weighing 5-10 pounds. The
bowfin is- a unique looking fish
that looks a lot like an eel with
a long dorsal fin along its back
and a single lobed tail. It swims,
in an undulating pattern.
Bowfins are, found in the east-;
ern United States. They also are
commonly known as mudfish,
which reflects on the fact that
they:are often found in muddy,


stagnant backwaters.
The bowfin has
unique adaptations
for life in warm, stag-
nant waters.
Although they prefer
clear water with
abundant vegetation,
they are tolerant of
silt, mud and higher
water temperatures.
The bowfin uses its
gas bladder for buoy-
ancy. (as other fish
do) and to inhale
atmospheric oxygen.
This allows the
bowfin to rise to the

water surface and gulp air 'to
augment the oxygen intake
from the gills. This feature
allows the fish to live in water
where dissolved o\ygen is
reduced by high water tempera-
tures or \egetati\e decomposi-
tion. But don'i be fooled; just


because bowfin are
residents in a lake
doesn't mean that the
water quality is poor.
Many anglers
don't consider the
bowfin a sport fish.
The bowfin, or dog-
fish, also is scorned
for their voracious
appetite in eating
both gamefish and
panfish of more
desirable species.
However, they battle
powerfully when
hooked, offering a
tremendous fight to


,the angler. Bowfin, when
caught, should be handled care-
fully. They are very pugna-
cious, and consider themselves
a match for an% thing includ-
ing a human being. Once in the
boat, they will make every
attempt they canat biting the


fisherman and they have a
mouthful of very sharp teeth.
Males are said .to turn
"bluish" when mating. .The
male bowfin roots a shallow
circular nest (15 inches to 3 feet
in diameter) in weedy swamp or
slough bottom in late spring.
The female then deposits the
eggs. The male fertilizes them
and guards the nest and fry until
the fingerlings can fend for
themselves.

tained in this article was

Looking back in history

of Latter-day Saints


In 1820, Joseph Smith, a
youth of 14, went to the woods
near his home in Palmyra, N.Y.
to pray.
He claimed God and Jesus
Christ appeared to him at that
time. Later, in 1823, a messen-
ger named Moroni, was said to
have been sent from God and
appeared to Joseph Smith in la
vision. Every September for
four years, Joseph returned to
that spot where he was taught
by Moroni to be a Prophet;
In 1827. Joseph received
gold plates from Moroni and
within 21 months, Smith's
translation of the plates was
complete and make up "The
Book of Mormon."
As prophet, teacher and
beloved leader of the Saints.

Histo Lesson
5 Years Ago
July 8, 2001: After twice
losing the lead through the
first five innings, the Avon
Park All-Stars used an
assist from Mother Nature
to score 16 runs in the top
-of the sixth inning lo way-
lay LaBelle 26-11 in the
first round of the Dixie
Belles State Tournament.
The Avon Park team and
fans were miffed because
they weren't allowed to
bring their own water into
the Sneads Recreation
Complex as they had warm
water and drinks for sale. It
was poetic justice when
the sky opened up and
Avon Park sent 21 batters
to the plate and took con-
trol of the game. Even the
rain couldn't stop Avon
Park, which scored all its-
runs on just five timely
hits, 11 walks and two hit
batters.

10 Years Ago
July 10, 1996: John Paul
Heston pitched a complete
game, allowing just two
hits and no runs over the
first five innings and his
defense committed just
one harmless error as the
Avon Park Dixie Boys 13-
year-olds rolled over
Okeechobee 8-3. Avon
Park took the lead for good
in the top of the first
inning, scoring two
unearned runs. Marc
Maynor led off with a sin-
gle and later scored on a
throwing error. Johnny
Harrison reached on a
fielder's choice and scored
on an error off the bat of
Will Jackson to make it 2-
0. Heston finished with
eight strikeouts and gave
up four walks and five hits.

when she scored 47 points in Lake Placid
to break Lucia Heston's school record.

game win over Okeechobee National in Avon Park.


She also helped Sampson earn

abl\ enough, came on the night the
Streaks hammered Fort Nleade 52-9 '
three days later to wrap up a 20-0 reg-
ular season, Sampson' first perfect cam-
paign.
That game was a typical Crumity per-
formance as she scored eight straight
points as the Streaks opened with a 20-0
run in the first four minutes of the game,
then helped several of her teammates add
to their point totals as the Streaks pulled
away even more for an easy win.


It was a win that Crumity will always
cherish, too.
"Going undefeated was special and
playing for Coach Sampson for three
years and being a part of his 300th win is
something I will always remember," she
said. "We had a good group of girls that
worked hard and I'm going to miss play-
ing with them."

WAIT
Continued from D
tion aided Hoffner's solid win-
ning effort, as McNew, second
baseman Buddy Mays, catcher -'
Taylor Townsend, first base-
man Danny Ware, and third
baseman Tyler Shingle all con-
tributed to crucial put-outs
down the stretch.
Another nerve wracking
error bug struck Sebring in
sixth as back-to-back miscues
put the tying and winning runs
on second and third.
With the fans on the edge of
their seats, Hoffner notched -
another strikeout, saving every
ounce of strength for his final
pitches. Crawford followed
with a bunt down the first base
line that was smothered by
Danny Ware who underhanded
it to Townsend for the tag at the
plate. A pop-up to third ended
the game, as Shingle hauled it
in, threw his arms in the air and `
ran to Hoffner and the rest of 5
his teammates.
"The last inning, I was just -;
putting all I had into it," said
Hoffner after the game. "I
throw a knuckle ball, but not'
toward the end. I was just try- S
ing to throw strikes." O
