Proposed tax


increase


benefits state


not district

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
,\,:/I :. Si."li
SEBRING Stmmni time is budget time for
The School Board of Highland, County,. but it is
the state that determines the action. Th:it is
because the amount of money a district gets for Its
operating budget is established by the state.
In addition, in order to recet'e state tunds, the
local district has to raise a state mandated amount
generated by local property taxes.
For example., the state legislature has allotted
Highlands Count y $80 million a \ear to operate its
schools, but a portion of those funds have to be
generated through a local property ta\. The state
currently contnbutes $53I million and the district
contributes $27 million
The ne"\ budget would shift responsibility so
that the state would contribute less. and the district
coninbutes more.
In other words. the school district receties no
extra money trom the ta\ increase
"These numbers are an esumate of what the
local effort \\ill be." Mike eA\er t. the school dis-.
net's director of business and operations. said.
"Next \week we'll hear the real number m which
comes from the state i.
Tuesday night, in order to meet its obhlation.,
The School Board of Highlands Count\ set a ten-
tatie ta\ rate of $s 212 per $1,000 of assessed
\aluation, an increase of .0'77 ov'er the 2005-2006
budget's tax rate of 8 135
Because there is a ta\ increase, the first in a
couple of years, the board hopes to use a portion
of it as collateral for a 1$45 million certificate of
participation. That mone\ would he tsed to bu\
property for a ne\\ elementary, school, building
additions on some campuses. and remiod-tfing
classroomni
The loan is necessary\ since others turned down
a half cent increase in the sales tax in NMa\ of
2005. The larger amount of money that ta\ \ would
ha\e raised would ha'e gone to building nev\
schools and improving 'current ones.
The tentative budeet for 2006-07 totals \$165.3
million, a 41 percent increase over the $1 17.1 mil-
hon budget of 2005-06. That total includes oper-
ating funds, capital impro'ementi funds, grants.
food seir\cerevenue and other local revenue
sources
NMone\ from the state lottery accounts for less
than 2 percent of the school district's budget.

Ken New, of Avon Park, and Matthew Schult and Heidi Crutchfield, both of Sebring, demonstrate proper drafting techniques during their weekly Wednesday morning ride. New
and Schult (left and center) show how cyclists typically draft off each other, which can result in a 60 percent decrease in effort exerted much like NASCXR. Crutchfield, a co-
owner of Quest Training Center & Spa, which is a sponsor of the Heartland Triathlon, demonstrates the 15 feet that triathletes must keep between themsehes and other cyclists.
Triathlons are a lest of individual fortitude, which precludes the cooperative use of drafting. To avoid penalization or disqualifications, triathletes should maintain a three-bike
gap. Crutchfield and New are members of the Highlands Pedalers, which also is sponsoring the race.

Commission approves $250,000 for theater


Heartland Heritage
must secure USDA
loan, donations first
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Highlands County commission-
ers on Tuesday approved a res-
olution that would grant
$250,000 to the Heartland
Heritage Foundation for a per-
forming arts amphitheater in
Lake Placid.
"We've been working for
some time to turn the dirt,"
Doris Gentry, of the Heritage
Foundation, said.
Like other construction proj-

$600,000

from state
Special to the News-Sun
The Florida budget, recently
signed by Gov. Jeb! Bush,
included more than $31 million
assigned to expand and
improve local parks across the
state. Funded through the
Department of Environmental
Protection's Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program, $600,000 will go to
Highlands County to assist
three local park projects and
enhance nearby communities
by increasing outdoor recre-
ation opportunities and improv-
ing public access to Florida's
natural resources.
"Recreation areas play an
important role in Florida's
economy, drawing both resi-
dents and visitors to the state's
natural resources," Bush said.
"Through Lran't funding from
the state, counties throughout
Florida have the opportunity to
expand .ind improve pairk.'f ,.
- Highlands Counit\ projects
funded in this year's budget
include:
Sports Comple\. Phase .1
and II, Highlands Count) -
The funds will be used oh a
softball field, soccer field, foot-
ball field, picnic facility, bike
patih. sidewalk, lighting, rest-
rooms and landscaping.
Lake June Park,' Phase
yVII, To% n of Lake Placid --
The funds will be put to use on
baseball field lighting, a play-
ground, soccer field, fishing
pier, batting cages, and the ren-
ovation of the playground and
picnic facilities.
"Through FRDAP grants
Florida's natural resources gain
additional protection," said
DEP Secretary Colleen M.
Castille. "Investments made
today to conserve the state's
cultural and recreational assets
preserve Florida for future gen-
erations."
-Administered by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, the Florida
Recreation Development
Assistance Program is a com-
petitive grant program, provid-
ing funds to local communities
for public outdoor recreation.


"For it is God's
will that by doing
good you should
silence the ignorant
talk of foolish people.
Live as free people but
do not use your freedom
as a cover-up for evil.
Live as servants of God".

ects throughout the region, the
amphitheater was delayed when
four hurricanes tore through the
county in two years.
Further delays were caused
by- the "red tape" of pursuing a
U.S. Department of Agriculture
loan.
"We know he's out -there and
eventually: we hope to have
him," Gentry said, expressing
the foundation's desire for a big
money donor to fund the proj-
ect, name the theater and help

them circumvent a government
loan.
The $250,000 from county
taxpayers is contingent on
matching donations from busi-
nesses and individuals and the
approval by USDA of a $4 mil-
lion loan.
"I really support this proj-
ect," Commissioner Barbara
Stewaft said, explaining that her
question about the foundation's
projections and budget are to
avoid future "requests from tax-,

payers."
To date, the county has grant-
ed $130,000, according to,
Stewart.
One of the selling points for
the commissioners is the money
the amphitheater is expected to
return to the county.
According to Commission
chairman Bob Bullard, consult-
ant Scott Parker, of the
University of North Carolina,
said the state's sole all-year,.
outdoor theater is expected to

Bullard said the county cur-
rently has two legs in its eco-
nomic stool. ,
"Oranges and old people" are
the two legs currently support-
ing Highlands' economy, he
said.
The third leg, yet to be fully
developed, is tourism.
"It'll put heads in beds,"
Eilleen May, president, Greater


Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce, said. "That's what
we want."
Stewart, in voicing her sup-
port of the amphitheater, gave
kudos to Gentry for the founda-
tion's interest in children; which
prompted an observation from
Louise England of the
Economic Development
Commission.
"There's not only a financial
return, there's the human return
as well,'.' England said.

SKILLS
Continued from 1A
Fowler said, noting that it will
take several thousands of dol-
lars in donations to run an inde-
pendent office.
After Fowler's pitch,
Murphy began the first lesson.
She began with the basics, iden-
tifying a victim and getting per-
mission to render aid, and pro-
gressed to CPR, with each les-
son building upon the previous.
Regardless of one's level of
training (a person should never
attempt to render aid beyond his
or her qualifications) :there is
al\ias1i something that can be
done, and action is vital, she
said
"If l.perorm CPR, iFm'OK,"'
Nlurpy- said. dunne a discus-
-sion about Good Samaritan
laws. "The law's going to, cover
me because I'm trained for that.
If I break out my pocket knife
and say it looks like your pinkie
needs to be cut off, that's not
OK."
Fowler added that a lot of
what the Red Cross teaches is
"common sense" but people
sometimes skip over basic
steps, which is why mnemonics
such as "CCC" and "ABC" are
used.
When encountering a poten-
tial victim, it's important to
"check" the scene (for hazards.
that would hinder the rendering
of aid) and the victim, ensuring
he or she will allow you to help.
After assessing the situation
"call" 911 or designate a caller.
Finally, "care" for the person's
injuries based on your level of
training.
If the victim doesn't want
your help, Murphy said the
thing to do would be to call 911
and then stay with the victim
until help arrived or the person
changed his or her mind.
Under certain circumstances,
implied consent is assumed,
such as when a victim is uncon-
scious or a child,
"You're going to do a head to
toe examination of the person,"
Murphy said, noting that for
children it's less threatening to
check from toes to head.
When sending somebody to
call 911, have them return with
information such as how long

Victoria Perez, of Lake Placid, practices rescue breathing Monday
during an American Red Cross CPR course in Sebring. Perez
received the CPR training in conjunction with an online course in
'life management' for Florida Virtual Schools,


before an ambulance arrives.
"Of course, they're not going
to,know how long the ambu-
lance is going to take," Murphy
said, explaining that it's impor-
tant for the caller to come back
so the rescuer knows whether-
911 was reached. The caller
also can help upon his or her
return.
Shock, conscious and uncon-
scious victims, and choking
also were part of the CPR class.
Airway, breathing and circu-
lation, the ABCs, are necessary,
to check (in that order) when
somebody is unconscious,
Murphy said.
Getting intimate with their
dummies training man-
nequins that have chests that
rise and fall when rescue
breaths are applied the class
learned how to watch, feel and


listen for breathing.
"What do you do if I have a
pulse but am not breathing?"
Murphy asked the class..
Congratulating the woman
who answered "rescue breath-
ing," Murphy posed her next
question.
"What if I don't have a pulse
but am breathing?" Murphy
asked.
That situation is impossible
because if the heart fails other
organs will shut down too.
"'It's a trick question," she
said, as she segued to CPR.
A person's health is contin-
gent upon the "chain of sur-
vival" a four-step process that
begins with early recognition of
a heart attack, early CPR, early
defibrillation and early
advanced medical care.

lator, portable machines that
shock a -stopped' heart into
pumping again, are becoming
more affordable at about $2,000
each and are more readily avail-
able as part of a business' first
aid kid than in the past.
"'These are important but
they're not a replacement,"
Fowler said of AEDs, which are
relatively easy to use and come
with instructions. "But, old-
fashioned CPR is what's going
to make people come around."
Victoria Perez, 16; of Lake
Placid, took the Red Cross
course as part.of an online class
she's taking this summer for
Florida's Virtual Schools.
It was her first time to
receive CPR training, whereas
others were there to renew their
certifications.
Where Perez's mind was a bit
more open, some of her coun-
terparts had to adjust to changes
since the last time they quali-
fied.
CPR compressions, formerly
15 with two rescue breaths,
increased to 30. And the differ-
ences for children were discard-
ed (except for the amount of
pressure exerted), Fowler said.
The change came in April, so
the course of instruction wjas as
new to the trainers as, to the
trainees.
"It. was challenging," .Perez
said. "It was very experiencing.
I learned how to save some-
body's life."
The class ended with a 20-
question written test (the stu-
dents had already demonstrated
proficiency in practical exercis-
es).
Perez missed two questions.
"I thought she was a good
teacher for being only an
intern," she said of Murphy.
"And, I liked Glenn's stories.
Some of them were shocking
and some were just interesting."
But, despite her new life-sav-
ing skills, Perez said she'd pre-
fer to never have to put them to
use, as Murphy suggested at the
beginning of the evening.

SFCC introduces teacher training program


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Florida is fac-
ing a huge shortage of teachers
over the next decade or so due
to teacher retirements and the
demands of the class-size
amendmnerni. It is estimated that
as many as 30,000 vacancies
statewide will have to be filled
in the next 10 years. .
Currently. the state uni' ersit,
s\ stern is noi iiimin- out teach-
ers quickly ent.:ugh to meet the

College 1i< moving to help
address the issue.
Beginning ii September it

training pto,'r.ini designed lii


individuals, who want to switch
careers but are already fully
employed.
"If you have a B.A. (bachelor
of arts) and some time," David,
Sconyers, dean of arts and sci-
ences, said, the program can
prepare you for the classroom.
"Classes will mostly meet on
Saturday for intensive ses-
sions, and on a few evenings.
Indi\ iduals should be qualitled
for a te.achin, certificate in a

SFCC has turned to the tri-

retired pnncip.,Is and master
teachers to ser' e on the faculty, .

The SFCC prgram will be in

Colleen Raffari has already done the next to impossible teaching physicians how" to teach so she's at
ease facing her newest challenge. Monday she begins a nemi chapter, directing South Florida Communil3
College's Educational Preparation Institute. The program is designed to lake people iith non-education
degrees and prepare them as cla sroom teachers.


er enrollment as word gets out
abh lit the program.
Vivianne Wa1ldron, coordina-
tor of human resources for the
school district, is excited about
the program.
"It isn't a degree program."
she said. "but another alterna-
tive certification program with
the structure to deal \ vith all the


very necessary issues like class-
room management, instruction-
al strategies, assessments, and
educational foundations.
"We see it as another pool of
teachers From what I know of
the training. I think the (teacher
trainees i %ill get the tipe of
training the\ need to.be suc-
cessful in the classroom."


Raffati uses experience

to head new program
Colleen Rafftai. \ho today lea\ es the position of director
of the Highlands di ision of the Early Readiness Coalition of
Florida's Heartland to transfer to South Florida Community
College. \ ill be in charge of the teacher training program.
She is perhaps uniquel.1 suited tor the post. having made
the shift from one career to another herself.
Originally form Michigan, Raffati began her career as a
respiratory therapist and wound up coordinating a two-.year
respirator\ therapist training program
That e\penence sent her back to school. She earned a mas-
ter's degree from Nlichigan'State Uniersity and then did fac-
ult\ development training for example. %working with
physicians to help them become better teachers in medical
school.
That was followed b. a stint administering a kindergarten
through high school Healthy Start program in California pub-
lic schools. "It as a more expansnie program than the one
\we hat\e here." she said. It in\ohed social %workers,. nurses
and other support staff located at six different school sites.
Three \ears ago Raffaut moed to Florida and became the
first director for the Highlands Count\ division of the Early
Readiness Coaltion. That role made her the mid-wife for the
birth ot the \iluntars Pre-Kindergarten program approved by
\.rers in 2002 and put into place in 2005 so she has been
thitough the challenge of putting a plan into action before.
Toda\ is her last da.y w ith the coalition. MNonday she takes
up her nic\ duties at the college.
Raffatl said that the four- county Early'Readiness Coalition
i rrembers are Highlands. Charlone. DeSoio. and Hardee
cot)ntiesI is engaged in reorganization. As a result, a perma-
nent director wt ill not be named at this time Jeanne Gnffith,
cun-ently deputy administrator, will serNe as acting director in
the intennim.

A&W turns National Ice Cream Day into summerlong celebration


SEBRING Across the country on
Sunday fans of frozen treats will be cele-
brating "National Ice Cream Day."
But at A&W Restaurants, the party will
just be getting started as the chain kicks off
its summerlong "Float Your Papa Combo
for Free" promotion on Sunday.
From July 16 through Sept. 2, any A&W
- customer who orders a Papa Burger Combo
(including a Papa Burger, fries and a drink)
will receive a free drink upgrade: A&W
will make the drink a float, free of charge.


A&W is located in Lakeshore Mall.
"The A&W brand was founded in 1919,
so we have a very long and very cool rela-
tionship with ice cream," said Tim Matis,
director of marketing for A&W
Restaurants. "We consider ourselves
experts in both summertime fun and Sweets
& Treats, arid we don't think a single day is
enough time to do justice to celebrating ice
cream. So we're extending the celebration
through Sept. 2 with our 'Float Your Papa
Combo for Free' offer."


The "float upgrade offer" applies to other
soft drinks as well (although the root beer
float is far and away the most popular float
flavor at A&W). So for those who prefer
other float flavors over root beer floats,
A&W will be happy to oblige.

Customers who grew up with A&W
Restaurants remember the Papa Burger, the
patriarch of the Burger Family that made its
debut in the 1960s but disappeared from the
A&W menu at many locations years later.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Ensuring a

Multiple community partners
in Miami-Dade County have an
opportunity to lead the nation in
aligning systems that serve our
youngest children and their
families. With a collaboration
that began several years ago,
The Early Childhood Initiative
Foundation, Miami-Dade
County Public Schools, the
Lastinger Center for Learning
of the University of Florida and
the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's
'SPARK project, come to the
table with significant resources
to support the PK-3/Ready
Schools effort. These. organiza-
tions are willing and committed
to collaborate to bring PK-
3/Ready Schools to more than
200 elementary schools in
Miami.
Florida has laid the founda-
tion with its universal voluntary
prekindergarten program.
However, in order for children
to get the most out of growing
.public investments in early
learning, we must follow,
Miami-Dade County's lead'in
aligning standards, curriculum
and assessment from prekinder-
garten through kindergarten and
into the early elementary
grades. That's the PK-3
approach.
The PK-3 approach involves
pro hiding voluntary, full-
school-day prekindergarten for
all 3- and 4-year-old children
and full-school-day kinder-
garten building on the pre-
kindergarten experience. The
curriculum focuses on social
skills and self-disciipline as well
as reading and math and
emphasizes a *collaboiainie
effort between families and'
teachers:


better future for Florida's children


Research sup-
ports the PK-3 FLORIDi
approach. A study
reported in the David La
Journal of the Donald I
American Medical and Dr.
Associati o.n Jone
tracked 1,500 dis-
advantaged minor-
ity children in Chicago for 16
years. About two-thirds of the
children participated in a com-
prehensive preschool program
where standards, curriculum
and assessment were aligned
with kindergarten through third
grade. Called Child-Parent
Centers, these programs were
part 'of the Chicago Public
School System. The study
found that CPC participants
were almost 30 percent more
likely to complete high school
than a comparison group of
equally disadvantaged children.
Forty percent fewer CPC partic-
ipants '1e hei Icd bh.L in school
or placed in. special education
and CPC pjrlicipa.nt had 41
percentfewer arrests for violent
crime. The study shows that the.
prog rm can generate long last-
ing results and benefits.
The CPC program deinon-
strates ho'w the PK-3 approach
works to imp'ipi e the hi'iac.,
and math skills of all children,
especially English language
learner-s .nd ho".-minc.e chil-
dren. The pioiram strengthens
children's social skills and
motivation to help them suc-
ceed, reduces the need for spe-
cial education services and
reduces the "fade out'' effects
often found in prekindergarten
only programs.
The PK-3 approach encour-
ages principals to build 'strong


A



e


teams of teachers.
iFORIUM Because it requires
teachers to have the
wrence Jr., qualifications,
emberton knowledge and
Clarence skills to teach all
?s Jr. grades from
prekindergarten
through the third
grade, teachers will all be on the
same page and thoroughly'
understand the development of
the curriculum across grade lev-
els and ages: This enables par-
ents to build long-term relation-
ships with these important
adults in their children's lives.
To help qualified teachers make
a career of early education, we
must pay them what we pay all'
other elementary school teach-
ers.,
According to the recently
released Child Well-Being
Index report, the rise in 9-year-
olds' math and reading per-
formance :as .measured by the
National -. Assessment of,
EdTucation Program ('.'the
nation's report card"), corre-
sponds .' nitl the,' dramatic
expansion, of prekindeigarten
since the mid-'90s.-Schools that
use the PK-3 approach are more
'likely to see ll children reach
fourth grade equipped with the,
skills needed to learn at a high-.
er level, narrow the achieve-
ment gap thetieen groups of
children and meet federal
requirements under the No
Child Left Behind, law. The\
also improve e. er\ child"'
'chance of ,graduating high
school and becoming a produc-
tive member of their communi-
ty.
These educational advance-
ments Itransl.ite into significant


societal gains..PK-3 stimulates
the coordination of funding
streams and makes more effi-
cient use of public resources for
early and elementary education.
The investment in early educa-
tion programs has a potential
return rate of 16 percent by
reducing costly grade retention,
special education placements,
teen birthrates, crime and incar-
ceration.
In order for our children to be
successful in school and in life,
we must invest in the earliest
years of learning. Model early
education programs like the
PK-3/Ready Schools can have
powerful and long-lasting
results; they prevent serious
societal problems and produce
significant economic returns.
These programs enable children
to reach their full potential. We
must change the way out educa-
tion system works from the bot-
tom up. The key is to build a
bridge between pre-kinder-
2arten and the K- 12 s stem. We
can do this b inmestngin PK-
3 for all Florida's youngest chil-
dren.

Another side to Avon Park
While it may not make the :national news like the cur-
rent turmoil over illegal aliens, there's something else
going on in Avon Park that desert es attention, especially)
since it happens at a time when normally nothing hap-
pens. "'
The Depot Museum, 'operated by the Historical
Society of Avon Park, has started what it calls. its'
"Special Summer Sunday Series." This is a free Sunday
afternoon program featuring a x arietN of speakers talking
on a variety, of historical and current topics.
So far, they've held sessions on the "new and
improved" Avon Park Public Library: and on the Golden '
Days of Radio. This Sunday, the Avon Park Veterans
Honor Guard offers a patriotic ceremony, with the muse-
um itself following suit with several militaryexhibits..
Over the coming Sundays, programs will be offered on
Highlands. Hammock, State Park and the Civilian,
Conservation Corps, how to write your family history,
Hotel Jacaranda, the Kissimmee River restoration proj-
ect, even a Kids Day. And museum officials are hoping
one Sunday can be devoted to the Avon Park Air Force
Range.
All this happens during our "lazy days of summer"
and on a Sunday afternoon yet.
Goes to show what a little creativity can do.




Fireworks were Spectacular

wonderful Fourth of July


Editor:
Over the years, the city of
Avon Park has had its problems
and criticisms, but it is making
progress like downtown; the
"new" library and Donaldson
Park. Another case in'point-was
its July 4 fireworks display.
On.that evening,, in "perfect"
weather, my son, my compan-
ion and I settled into our
favorite viewing area on the
grass on the west side of Lake
Verona.
The fireworks were a great
show. Even before the super
finale I concluded, in my mind,
that I could imagine no .other
place on earth where the weath-
er, the fireworks, or the view-
ing could have been better.
My congratulations and sin-
cere thanks to the city, Wally
Randall and his "crew" and to
everyone who contributed to
their effort. You did yourselves
and I suspect a whole lot of
viewers proud!

friend to many

Editor:
Personally, I do not know
Julia Newell what I do know
is no employee in NMark Foley's
office ever spoke curtly to any-
'one.
Ask a veteran about Mark'
Foley. Prior, to Mark Foley's
diligent work over, the years,
veterans traveled to St.
Petersburg'or Tampa for treat-
ment or' medical attention,
There is now a- veteran's med-
ical clinic in Sebring due to
the enormous efforts of Mark'
Fole\.
Having spoken to many
offices in Highlands County.
exemplary attention by the staff
in Mark Foley's Sebring office
is practiced daily. The compas-
sion for your concern is afford-

this faithful and respectful
service for every resident will

While the public anxiously
urges Congress to find a solu-
tion to the immigration crisis, it
lingers on. Even the people in
Texas might be mystified by
President Bush's "talking the
talk," but not "walking the
walk" concerning border pro-
tection.
He has.... allowed millions of
illegals to cross our border for
over five years, while claiming
to pursue efforts to "man the
borders," while simultaneously
actually reducing the border
patrol and refusing to fund
existing agencies to catch and
deport those illegals. In fact,
while periodic arrests of a few.
dozen illegals make headlines,
- the release of those same ille-
gals, just hours later; do not.
He consistently brags about
the great economy, while
remaining silent about the mil-
lions of jobs lost due to out-
sourcing, or those of reduced
pay without benefits, thus
impoverishing the American
workers (the middle class). He
does not talk about chief exec-
utive officers' salaries increas-
ing from 40-times to 400-times
that of working people, but he
has talked about hard-working,
family-oriented illegals having
a right to support their families,

even though they are here ille-
gally with stolen or fraudulent
documents .(Social Security
cards; driver's licenses, etc.),
used to obtain those jobs. He
talks about catching and fining
employers who hire illegals,
while failing to arrest even one
thus far.
He has talked about jobs
Americans won't do, then
about jobs Americans don't do
(catch the, subtle difference?).
Then.he insists on bringing in
foreign' professionals to fill
jobs because American profes-
sionals refuse .to work longer
'hours and accept increased
responsibility for less pay. Note
the emergency rooms at hospi-
tals have a 40 percent increase
in cases because more and
more Americans cannot afford
health care (no longer a bene-
fit)., Hospitals have already
gone bankrupt treating illegals
for free.


Yes, this economy is great
for those CEOs, executives and
the upper 15 percent earning
$100,000-plus, but it has .been a'
disaster for, ordinary working
people, those who used to earn
$25,000 to $50,000 a year, now
earning $12,000 to $20,000 a
year.
That great economy was
boosted by the housing boom.
Millions of couples took
advantage of the five percent
mortgage rates for. five years. It
was .part of the American
Dream, to own a home. Both
parents or partners were work-
ing to make this dream come
true. Sadly, one's job was out-
sourced; the other had to take
reduced wages to compete with
those illegals. Does this sce-
nario sound familiar? This, of
course, endangered their new
mortgages. These new home
owners discovered they had
balloon-type mortgages that


allowed increased rates of 25
percent, 50, even 75 percent.
,So, not only were these' work-
ing Americans faced with out-
sourcing and reduced wages;
they were faced with a double
whammy of increased mort-
gage rates. President Bush
never talks about that:
Thousands losing their homes.
Such data would becloudd" that
great economy.
It has been stated often that
President Bush's credibility is
in question, but he continues to
espouse this great economy and
his "stay the course" policy on
Iraq. Both Iraq and Afghanistan
are in a state of crisis. Is it not
curious that the only super
power and most powerful
country in the world is at a
standstill in this War on Terror?
That we are not admired any-
more as a result of Abu Giraid,

Other priorities

taking place
Editor:
Many of you may remember
that I am involved with the
Grandparents, Raising Grand-
children Support Group in
Highlands County. The group
is still out there but not as
active as it has been in the past
but I do hope that this changes
in the near future.
One of the members, Margie
Whitbeck, has graciously
offered to work at getting the
group back into full swing. She
can be reached at 452-2702 if
you wish to help or join.
Myself, I have come to real-
ize that I am not Superwoman
and have had to learn to say
those dreaded words, "I can't
do it all." With my own health
problems flaring up, my father
having health problems, and
my children needing more of
Mommy, I have learned to pri-
oritize.
Another priority to me is
continuing to advocate to have
Jean Claude Meus freed from
that prison cell where he should
have never been put into in the
first place.


Even though he is not yet
married to my sister Rebecca,
he is a member of our family
and dearly missed. Our visits to
the prison are painful. Seeing
this very gentle man amid hard-
ened criminals for just being in
the wrong place at the' wrong
time stabs at my heart.
Although still among the liv-
ing, I have taken a back seat
with the GRG group and would
appreciate any help that you
can give to Margie. I can also
be reached for advice-and sup-
port for those raising grandchil-
dren at 382-3511.

Should America

be in Iraq?
Editor:
You all remember the
Swiftboat campaign against
Senator John Kerry during the
2004 election.
They are back, but this time
with very little press coverage,
which shows that the Vets for
Truth can abe a vital campaign
against Rep. John P. Murtha in
his. election in the 12th district
in Pennsylvania and the press
is not going to let the world
know just how powerful the
Vets are during,elections.
So it's no concern of you in
Florida?
It should be, as a man spoke
out against the Iraq war in
hopes that some think he will
end up being nominated for
President of the United States.
Rep ... John P. Murtha
Observe how people can
speak out and it can be done
very cheaply. Go to www.boot-
murtha.com and find out what
is happening to Rep. John P.
Murtha who thinks his election.
in the 12th district is a sure


thing ... .and will eventually
end up with the public knowing
everything about Rep. John P
Murtha that would show do
you really want him as the
President of the United States?
Are we suppose to be in Iraq
and its importance of being the
cradle of civilization, could be
the destruction of the cradle of
civilization if we do what Rep.
John P. Murtha and a lot of
democrats want us to do ..
abandon Iraq and let the terror-
ist take over and spread further
into the world?
Israel is the nation most
often mentioned in the Bible;
the second is Iraq, but is called
in the Bible as Babylon, Land
of Shinar, and Mesopotamia.
The word Mesopotamia
means between the two rivers,
moye exactly between the
Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.
The name Iraq, means country
with deep roots. Indeed it is a
country with deep roots and is
very significant country in
Bible.
To find out the facts look up
Genesis 2:10-14; 2:7-8; 3:1-6;
10:8-97; 11:1-4; 11:5-11; 11:31
24:3-4; 27:42-45; 31:38;
Daniel 1: 1-2 and 2:36-38; 'and
Acts 7-24.
The greatest revival in histo-
ry was in a city in Iraq -
Jonah.
The events in the Book of
Esther took place in Iraq.
The book of Nahum was a
prophecy against a city in Iraq.
The book of Revelation has
prophecies against Babylon
(Iraq's former name) -
Revelation 17 and 18.
No other nation, except
Israel, has more history and
prophecy associated it than
Iraq.
America is typically iepre-
sented by an eagle..
Koran (9-11) For it is written


that a son of Arabia would
awaken a fearsome Eagle. The
wrath of the Eagle would be
felt throughout the land of
Allah and lo, while some of the
people trembled in despair, still
more rejoiced ; for the wrath of
the Eagle cleansed the lands of
Allah; and there was peace.
(Note the verse number)
Does God want Iraq free? If
the Koran 9-11 predicted
America the eagle to cleanse
the lands of Allah so there will
be peace, will God's will pre-
vail, or those who seem to think
that there is no God, so there-
fore God's will cannot be ful-
filled?

Developing hope, freedom and friendship


By SUE ANN CARPENTER

LAKE PLACID

huge project this year. In
cooperation with Pensacola
Rotarians, representative es % ill
be in Costa Rica from July 22 to Aug. 5
unloading and delivering books and
wheelchairs.
It all started three Nears ago in
Pensacola when Gar\ Ca' asos and
Pastor Carl Dickerson of St. Luke
ILnited Methodist Church traveled to
Costa Rica as part of their church mis-
sion. While there they met with mem-
bers of Alaltiela Rotary who wanted
partners for a community service proj-
ect.
The Alaluela Rotar worked with
lan)ous charitable organizations to find
and screen children wheelchair recipi-
ents. On their return home Ca\ asos and
Pastor Dickerson felt it was such a
worthwhile project that the\ decided to
Join their local Rotan and promote the
\ wheelchair project.
In the last two Nears, the Pensacola
club has shipped 560 wheelchairs to
Costa Rica. W\\hat started as one book
for pach child w ho recei ed a w\heel-
chair, has turned into a project of
librarN books, plus educational and
teaching aids for 71 schools in the area.
The cost of the shipping alone is
$2-4a,001. This container's contents are
valued at $t100,000. It holds school
books and 35 special-needs wheelchairs
for children Gary Cavasos moved to
Lake Placid three years but continued
to participate with his Pefisacola church
and Rotarians, making trips to Costa
Rica
Last : ear, he joined the Lake Placid
Rotarn ia 5i0-.ear-old club with 33
members and in% ited Dickerson to
come and speak to area Rotarians, urg-
ing them to take up the wheelchair proj-
ect ajs aell. The Lake Placid Rotarians
rose to the challenge and so far have
raised $12.000 for this project, and in
Jul\ a total of si\ members will travel
to Costa Rica to present the ,wheelchairs
and books: President Luis Ojeda, GarN
Caj.isos, Verlon Carrell. Paul Elliott.
Murk Elliott. Margaret Callahan. Rose
Bell and Merr) Cresswell. Non-
Rotanan Charles Re. nolds also \\ill
participate.
On last Near's trip, the wheelchairs
\were distnbuted in front of the cathe-
dral in the town square of Alajuela to
disabled children. Their mothers carried
these children, w\ho at home must crawl
or drag themselves around Most are
enrolled in a special school provided by
the go\ ernment w here the\ get therapy
and treatment Likes were changed that
da\ not onlN for disabled children
and families, but the local community
and all participating Rotanans.
"I cannot describe the impact it made
on my life to make these friendships
and to work together on these projects.
I can't find the words to capture the
depth of this experience." Dickerson
said.
Unfortunately last year one mother


This mother holds her daughter who did
not receive a wheelchair. She came with
her daughter to receive a wheelchair, but
her daughter uas so severely disabled she
was not able to sit in a regular wheel-
chair. After that experience, local Rotary
members began seeking a donation of
specialty wheelchairs which they received.
The chairs were recently shipped to Costa
Rica and a team of Rotarians are travel-
ing to Costa Rica July 29 to Aug. 5 to fit
the chairs to the children. This child will
be among those who will receive a special-
ty wheelchair.


S, . I . C:u s, phOl-
During a wheelchair distribution day in the Central Park in Alajuela Costa Rica. this mother was happ3 to get a new wheelchair for
her son.


%who arrived carrying her severely dis-
abled daughter didn't receive a %%heel-
chair because a standard model would
not accommodate her. Dickerson prom-
ised he %would do everything to get her
a %wheelchair. He e\en took a photo to
help find the nght chair and to be able
to identify her upon his return this Jul\
In the beginning, the Pensacola
Rotarians received chairs from a
Mississippi Special Needs School
where children had either outgrown or
could no longer use their wheelchairs
for vanous reasons. Together with the
church. volunteers transported and
stored them for a year while the
Rotarians raised funds and applied
matching grants from The Wheelchair
Foundation. Another Rotarian who
ow ns a medical equipment company is
able to custom design chairs for the
severely disabled w ho cannot use a
standard chair.


Want to help?

What: The Wheelchair Foundation, a nonprofit organization which deli\-
ers a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs, but
cannot afford one. For every $75 donated through Rotary. The Wheelchair
Foundation matches it for the total cost of one Nwheelchair.
You receive: A personalized presentation certificate, including a photo-
graph of a wheelchair recipient. It can be personalized as a gift in honor or
memory of a special person in your life. or to mark a special occasion.
Make checks payable to: Wheelchair Foundation, but send it to Gary
Cavasos. 2049 County Road 29, Lake Placid, FL 33852. Rotary batches
ddnations so that a full container can be serit.


The Pensacola Rotarians load a ship-
ping container for the Port of Limon.
Costa Rica where Alajuela Rotarians
received the articles, then host the
American Rotarians 'who'll arme for
distribution and presentauon to chil-
dren. Dickerson is especially excited to
present a wheelchair to the little girl in
the photo he's carried for a year.

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's


Chest' digs its hook into audience


In 1984, Stephen Spielberg
and George Lucas released the
second film of their lavishly
lucrative trilogy,, a project by
the name of "Indiana Jones and
the Temple of Doom." After the
title character's finer points and
phobias had been burned into
pop-culture consciousness in
"Raiders of the Lost Arc," all
roads were open to the powerful
filmmakers. They established
that, like James Bond, Indy
would finish every episode with
a new lady-fnriend, weave his
way in and out of booby-traps,
and suffer betrayal from -an
apparent ally.
They would also take the
exponentially larger budget and
put it toward lots of gooey spe-
cial effects and pyrotechnics..
This did not automatically
make the sequel better than the
original, just slimier.
Going in to see "Pirates of
the Caribbean: Dead Man's
Chest," it's almost too easy to
forget that there were certain
elements from the first film that
are impossible to duplicate. The
first is the irreplaceable
Geoffrey. Rush. I call this the
"Batman"/Nicholson-syn-
drome. As clever as your cast-
ing may seem for any subse-
quent sequel, you'll never out
do Jack's portrayal of the Joker.
The. same goes for Barbossa,
who was eliminated in "The
Curse of the Black Pearl."
Another key factor is the
killer twist at the end of the first
film. The revelation of Captain
Jack Sparrow as an undead
pirate gives the story that
exclamatory gut-punch that
keeps you talking about it for
days. Having already spent that
nickel, the sequel attempts to
make up ground with compli-

gets





cated connections. curses and
anamorphic man-beasts.- The
bad guys in the first movie were
crunchy. These bad guys are
moist.
If "Pirates 2" has an anchor
keeping it from swirling down
the drain, it's the Computer
Generated Imagery effects. It's
impossible to take your eyes off
the screen hen the crustaceous
Davey Jones (Bill Nighy) is
delivering his dialogue. Even.
close up, his translucent scaly
skin is convincing and layered,
reminiscent of the face-hugging


creature in "Alien." His fishy
shipmates derive their charac-
teristics from your favorite
aquarium creatures. There's a
hammerhead-guy, a blow-fish-
guy, and Will Tirner's (Orlando
Bloom's) long-lost father
Bootstrap Bill, who doubles as
starfish-face-guy. Everyone is
crusy,. barnacled and covered
with clams (yum).
As for our heroes, their alle-
giances to one another seem to
have suffered between the two
films. Captain Jack is the same
ungrateful scoundrel he was in
the first film, but now that he
owes his "life" to Will Turner, it
effects our perception. Johnny
Depp's, performance as the
boozy pirate is consistent, but
not mysterious or funny any-
more.
The romance between
Elizabeth Swann (Keira
Knightley) and Turner has been
reported to have been toned
down by Disney to make the
story more palatable. I'm, not
sure that it worked, but it defi-
nitely wasn't as intriguing as it
was in .te "The Curse of the
Black Pearl." Waiting out the
initial hook-up of the two love
birds is much more fun than
waiting out an interrupted Wed-


Do people sin alore?


This article was inspired
by the preaching of Scott
Waldron of One-Eighty
Ministries at Lake Denton
Camp.

When ,we sin do we do it
alone or do we take anyone
with us? Well, let's explore so
truths about the Word.
We are the body of Christ
right? The Holy Spirit lives in
us so that God can live through
us. God uses us to do his work
on earth. So back to the first
question it seems then that
when we sin we take not only
God, but the trinity with us.:
Think about that the next time
you sin. As born again
Christians we are to live as
Jesus lived on earth do as he
would do in every situation. We
are to be a witness to the world
as to God's unconditional love
and forgiveness. I'll get back to
forgiveness in a minute. Now of
course we are not and never
will be, on this earth, perfect
like Christ, but that is not what
the Bible calls for. God knows
that we will sin in some shape
or form. He commands us to try
and live our life like Christ the


best that we can,
being humble,
repenting of our sins,
and striving to be
perfect like Christ.
* So next time that
we curse, mistreat
someone, have a neg-
ative attitude. or
whatever sin, con-
sumes our lives use
the "Stop, Drop and
Pray" technique.
Stop whatever your
are doing or what you
are about to do, Drop'


COPS FOR
CHRIST

to you knees and pray for Gods
wisdom, direction and f6rgive-:
ness. They may have taken
prayer out of schools and the
'Ten Commandments out of
.public buildings but they can
never take away your freedom,
your First Amendment right to
stop and pray Whenever and
wherever you want to. Think
about, the sin you are or about to
commit and don't take God
with you.
Now' back to forgiveness.
When we sin everyone knows
that you can pray to God and
ask for forgiveness and your
sins will be forgiven right? Well


yes, but its not that
simple. I have heard
several people say
they don't understand
how God can forgive
person A for just
telling a little white
lie, and at the same
time forgive, person B
for murder,, rape,
etc... First of all, we
cannot just throw up
our hands and say,
"Lord I'm a sinner
forgive me" and
that's the end. The


bible says you must confess
' our sin, (not that you are just a
sinner but tell what your sins
are) to one another. That's right
you must detail to God what
your sins are in a real and open
conversation to get right with
the Lord. And heredis a side note
- he already knows what you
did, so don't try afid leave any-
thing out. Do you remember
when you tried to do that with
your mom and dad and they
already knew what you did,
,your punishment was worse
because you tried to hide some
facts already in evidence.. God
is your father and he knows


everything.
When you are u one confess-
ing your sins and asking for true
forgiveness you will rise feeling
wonderful, if you still feel like a
'heel, then drop back to youi
knees and ask God to talk to
you because he wasn't there the
first time You will know when
God is' in your presence. You
will feel love, relief from youi
problems and joy. If you feel
. anything else, it is not the spirit
of God that is With you, it is
Satan. Remember he is a master
of deceit and don't forget he
was an angel in heaven at one
time so he kno\ s how to act
like God to deceive youi. So
what do you do? Rebuke Satan
in the name of Jesus Christ and
ask God to be in your presence
and he will cast Satan away and
come to you. Be true to yourself
and to the trinity. God bless all
of you and America.

ding ceremony.
If it sounds like I'm ripping
this movie apart. I'm really not.
I'm ripping the story apart. The
visual product is entertaining
and beautiful. It's just that it's
impossible not to compare the
onginal to the sequel.
Some say director Gore
Verbinski has taken a page from
Peter Jackson ("Lord of the
Rings") by filming the sequels
simultaneously, but I liken it
more to ."The Matrix" trilogy.
The first movie was surprising-
ly successful so the next two
films were slapped together
with a gigantic budget like an
extravagant addition to a mod-
est home.
The architecture just doesn't
quite match, and the first one
will always be where you hang
your Jolly Roger.

6C News-Sun, Friday, July 14, 2006


Even adults can c


over


Do you remember a kid
yelling, "do ,over," when a
backyard home run ball inter-
fered with by a power line? Or
maybe in some board game
when a roll of the dice was neg-
atively affected and slid off of
the game board? I'm sure all of
us can recall times in our child-
hood when someone, either us
or a friend, yelled, "do over" for
the chance to do something
again hopefully with a better
outcome.
You know "do over" is not
just for kids playing games,in
the backyard. Big people cry for*
"do over" also. A failing mar-
riage, poor parenting, the use of
bad judgment and "empty-


headed" decision making
resulting in terrible circum-
stances all call for us as adults
to yell, "do over."
The Bible is full of people
who needed a second chance.
From Abraham, the father of the,
faithful and the friend of God to
Job the suffering saint of our
Savior, many characters looked
to the God of heaven for a "do
over." Yet, maybe none benefit-
ed more from Jehovah's mercy
than the "man after God's own
heart," Davjd.
, David's' story is one of our
favorite in the Bible. Shepherd'
boy turns into to giant killer to
king. Along the way he became
a great warrior and leader for


God. Being selected
by God to lead. his {,
people wp know
David was not an
ignorant man and
therefore knew the "
commandments of
God. And in knowing
the commandments
he also was fully VER
aware of the punish-
m'ents. But David SPII
also was very human
and therefore suscep- VIT
tible to all the weak- -
nesses of man. And Verlon
so as is told to us by .
the Holy Spirit in 2
Samuel 11-12 David sinned.
Although at the time he could


LO
RIT
AM
i7


probably convince,
himself of excuses
and all the "whys," he
later (Psalm 51) sim-
ply admits his sin'
'- before God. David
had committed adul-
tery with Bathsheba
and for all intents and
iN'S purposes had her hus-
band, Uriah killed (2
FUAL Samuel 12:9)., The
penalty for these sins
MIN individually and col-;
- lectively was death
7arrell (Exodus 20; Lev. 20).
- David knew it and
God knew it.' But do
you know what David really
needed? He needed a "do over,"


I Fa~~~ith -bae vet


a second chance. So when
Nathan the prophet appears to
David in 2 Samuel 12 .and
'.'opens David's eyes" to his' sin,
he also informs him ,of these
words, "you shall not die" (2
Samuiel 12:13). Now according
to the law, did David deserve to
die? Yes. Was what he did wor-
thy of death?. He admitted less
was worthy of death in 2
Samuel 12:1-6 when he would'
have had a mant put to death for
taking and killing another
man's lamb. But God gave him
a second chance. Maybe
nobody else would have but
the One who created the uni-
verse gave him a "do over."
What about you? Have you
been yelling, "do over" about
your shortcomings and sins?
Nobody is better at giving peo-
ple a second change than God.
Read your Bible and ask some


of God's best. Ask Peter, John
or Paul. They will all tell you
that God is the God of the sec-
ond chance. No matter what
your sins are. No matter what
others have told you or how
they have treated you. You can
have a "do over" because of
Jesus Christ. "Therefore, if any-
one is in Christ, he is a new dre-
ation. The old has passed away;
behold, the new has come. All
,this is from God, who through
'Christ reconciled us to him-
self," from 2 Cor. 5:17-18 ESV.
A clean slate ... better yet a
clean heart is available in Jesus
Christ.

History Lesson
1 Year Ago
July 13, 2005: Cody
Brownell shot a 1-over-par
73 in the final round of the
Sertoma Tour's third annu-
al Allstate Junior
Championship at Highlands
Ridge North, which proved
to be just enough to hold
off Matt Cornuet, his friend
and former Sebring Blue
Streak teammate, to take
the overall and boys 17-18
age group title. Cornuet,
who shot a 79 in the open-
ing round at Highlands
Ridge South and trailed
Brownell by five shots, ral-
lied with a 69 to finish at 4-
over 148. Jocelyn Dunn
was a runaway winner in
the girls 17-18 division
with rounds of 79 and 78
to finish 19 shots ahead of
Jessica Williams.

5 Years Ago
'July 13, 2001: The Sebring
Dixie Boys 14-year-olds
came out swinging against
Avon Park and kept on
swinging until they had an
11-4'win that forced a win-
ner-take-all showdown for

Don't ride off into the

Wlien the %ife.

the bills got to, be
too much for my,
dad's buddN Harpo,
he would d ask that
question aloud.
Weltl 'm happy, to

John Bedell


the sunset.
I imagine most Devil Rays
fans have thought about rid-
ing off into the sunset. An "'
evening at the,beach might be ..
more relaxing ,than rooting
for the home team at the ,
Trop. Some might prefer fish2
ing off the pier next to the
Skyway Bridge,.
Yet lately things are look-,
ing up for the Rays. Series
.wins against Boston and New
York made the recent home
stand one to remember.. The
new ownership and front
office are making moves that,
could pay off. ,
So I'm here to say to Devil
Ray fans, "Keep the faith!"
You can trust me. I am a
Detroit Tigers, fan.


Baseball fans
know the Tigers.
Just three years
ago, the Tigers
were the worst
team in mnajoi
.league baseball and
they came within
one gaimie of tying
the 1962 Mets for
the worst record
ever.
Today the Tigers
are in first place
and this fact was
even noted on some


editorial pages in a cartoon-,
that featured demons in a
frozen underworld shying.
"Apparently, the Tigers have
the best record in baseball at
the All-Star break."
Detroit has had 12 consec-
utive losing'seasons, which
trumps Tampa Bay's eight
losing seasons..But something
has happened in Detroit this
year.
Can the same thing happen
to the Devil Rays? I think so,
Itstarts with pitching.
Detroit has had the best
pitching in either league in
the first half of the season. By
the way, the Detroit pitching
coach is former Rays' pitch-,

13-year-olds will be at the front
grass field and the softball field
where the men's complex is
being changed up for our base-
lines and pitcher's mound, and
the 14-year-olds will be at the'
back grass field and the back

Scheduling has also been
reconfigured to deal with any
impending weather.
"Everybody plays on Saturday.
The games will start at 10 a.m.
and the last games will start at 3
so that we can get the games in.
If it does .rain, we still have
fields and time to work with,"
added Williams.
Daily passes are $5 at the
gate and $15 for a week-long
pass with free admission for
children 5 and under. Programs
featuring all 20 teams will be

Marion County is always strong
(and) Hernando County. is
always strong. They're usually
two of the perennial powers.
Sebring usually has a good
team and Crystal River is tradi-
tionallypretty good, so I'd say


they're all pretty 'dam good."
Jackson knows what it takes
for a group to succeed at this
level. A lot of it has to.,do with a
team gelling, at the right time.

*Detroit hurlers Jeremy
Bonderman, Mike Maroth and
Nate Roberston were all part
of the 2003 team that lost 119
games, but they have turned
things around with, the help of
All-Star starting pitcher Kenny
Rogers.
The Rays have their own
budding star in Scott Kazmir.
The 22-year-old lefty pitched
the best game of his career in
the recent home stand. His
complete-game, tw o-hit
shutout of the Red Sox was a
gem..
It certainly appears that
Kazmir can be the ace Now
the team needs to continue to
build the rotation around him.
It will probably take a combi-
nation of trades, minor league
development and free agents.
Free agents is certainly a
contradiction in terms. They
are not free. They are expen-
sive and they are often a big
gamble.
After their horrible 2003
season, Detroit needed a big
step toward respectability.
They took it by signing All-
Star catcher Ivan "Pudge"
Rodriguez to a four-year, $40
million contract. Pudge went to
Detroit because no other team
would offer such a contract.
Even the Tigers' owner admit-
ted that he had to overpay to
bring a quality player to the
team.
Tampa Bay will most likely
have to convince players to.
come. It is part of the process.
You have to spend money and
increase your payroll to be .
competitive, especially when
you play in the same division
js Ne\\ York and Boston.
You also have to be smart.',
One of the luckiest moves for
Detroit came a few years ago
when pouty slugger Juan
Gonzalez rejected a $150 mil-
lion contract because the team
wouldn't move in the fences of
the new stadium. Gonzalez
hated Comerica Park and was
eventually traded.
New Tigers general manager
Dave Dombroski has been
smarter with the owner's
money. He signed Rogers last
offseason and also signed
Magglio Ordonez, another All-
Star that was shunned by most

teams after.knee surgery.
Yet there are always, free-
agent failures. The Tigers had'
signed closer Troy Percival to
be a fixture in the bullpen. The
Rays' Johnny Gomes roughed
him up for a walk-off homer
last year in the Trop and soon
after, arm troubles ended
Percival's career.
The good news,for the Rays
is exciting young talent. Carl ,
Crawford is an amazing ath-
lete, the rare speedster with
power. Rocco Balaelli had a
terrific game in the win against
New York last Sunday.
One other key for success in.
Detrpit has been new manager
Jim Leyland. During spring.
training, Leyland told reporters
all the talk of player being
leaders in the clubhouse was
overrated.
"They are paying nie a lot :of
money to be a leader," he said.
He definitely came through
on that promise. One way he
delivered was on April 17 after
a lackluster performance in a
10-2 loss. In the clubhouse, he
lambasted the team and made

He has .been just the leader
the team needed. Can Joe '
Maddon be that kind of leader
for the Rays? It is hard to say

Yet it is wonderful to think
of how much fun it would be
to see the Rays in a pennant
race. Imagine: a young, hungry
club battling the Y.ml.ee? in,
Augustand September for a
division crown. You can
almost see the cameras focused
on an angry Steinibrenner as
Crawford scores on a Baldelli
single.
Keep your hopes up. It
'could happen.
