Money order leaves couple


holding, paying for puppy sale


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
LAKE PLACID Vincent
and Liuren Gregg Bryant were
taken by a money order scam in
earl\ June that has left them
fighting to keep themselves
financially afloat ever since.
An odd series of correspon-
dence, including first a phone
call from a woman \. ho called
herself "Carol Campbell"
(claiming to be interested in-
buying a puppy, hearing
impaired, and from London,
England), followed by a multi-
tude of e-mailing back and
forth, culminated into big prob-


lems for the couple.
When Lauren Bryant. oi nei
of Allstar Pups, was first con-
tacted in MaN. ,the a-e of the
relay se r ice for the deaf b\ tmhe
caller miitially put her on guard.
Vincent Bryant said that it
seemed odd but. they, "decided
to give the person the benefit of
the doubt."
Then the e-mails started,
coming.
In the first e-mail received by
Lauren Bryint, the potential
buyer told her that it was really
nice speaking with her on the
relay call, saying, "You have'to
bear with me as I am hearing


i tipaired."
Later in the same e-mail.
Campbell wrote. "I used to
work for the United Nations
and recently lost my hearing
due to a mighty explosion at a
site \\here we were evacuating
civilians in Iraq l am recei ing
treatment rants both from the
Amencan government and also
the United Nations."
Catnpbell also promised that
"the pup v. ill be taken care of
just like a child and nurtured

Wal-Mart still on


horizon, despite-


ordinance proposal

By ELAINE SEDLOCK

AVON PARK Despite rumors that the plans for ne-". Wal-
Nart in A\on Park may be changed if the proposed Illegal
Inimigratuon Relief Act passes. \Val-Mart officials say other ise.
When questioned as to \whether or not the ordinance would
have any impact on the future \al-IMart. company. spokesman
John Simley said. "We can't comment on (an\ ones opinion of
the constitutionally of the ordinance But to suggest that its
passing could present a \Wal-Mart from opening indicate, a lack
of understanding of our business. No one has greater interest
than Wal-NMart in insuring that all our associates are authorized
to \work in the United States."
In reference to past infractions by Wal-Mart. Simley said. We
had a case where an outside \endor certified to us that all his
employees were properly work authorized, and w.e were hood-
\ inked The subcontractor responsible for that was Christopher
Walters."
The ordinance, which w would fine business o owners for employ -
ing illegal immigrants and landlords for renting or leasing to
them. has come under a lot of fire.
It %\s initial\ a mirror image of an ordinance proposed in
Hazleton. Pa.. said A.on Park Mayor Tom Macklin hmho
brought the idea to the city council.
Since then, much control ers\ has arisen and a \ anet\ of new s
media hae shown an interest. including CNN and the A i )-,/,-
Tunei.
Becnaushe ordinance as aing model of Hazleon haproposal.hen
many hate been waiting tb see what would happen when
Hazleton held its final \ote on Jul\ 13.
According to the Siidantld Speahtr. the ordinance passed ith
a 4 to 1 \ote.
Whether or not it w\ ill pass in Avon Park remains to be seen.
- At this time it appears that the majornt\ of the council are in slup-
S port.' '
City Nanager C.B. Shire\ said the city may modify the ordi-
nance based.upon the modifications which weie done by
Hazleton.
Councilman Doug Eason said. of comments made by cit,
attorney Michael Disler. "He said on FOX 13 News that he
thinks our ordinance violates the First Amendment Tell me what
part of that could possibly \ violate the First Amendment."
"I'\e never seen so many people comment. prob.abl without
even reading the ordinance. Nothing in the ordinance does any-
thing to illegals. It goes after the businesses and the landlords,"
he continued
Eason said of Hazleton's passing the act, "Apparently they 're
not afraid of the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) or the
'Southern Poverty Legal Center," and added that "two days ago,
the assistant director of Homeland Security said, 'We're going to
criminalize business owners who knowingly employ illegal
immigrants.' We're noi criminalizing them-- we're just penal-
izing them."

PARK

Lynn admitted that Earl
drank too much alcohol and
eventually met someone else,
while traveling the highways.
He left his wife and two chil-
dren to be with the other person.
Lynn and Earl divorced in 1982.
While separated, Lynn and
her children all felt they were to
blame for the divorce. Her chil-
dren were 10 and 11 when their
dad left.
"The kids always thought it
was their fault. Our daughter
was really hurt. Our son stayed
close with his dad," she said. "I
always thought-it was my fault.
I never knew why he left."
With the help of counseling,
Lynn was able to work, through
'her, feelings and help her chil-
dren. "'I went to counseling and
I found out it really wasn't my
fault."
Despite all the hard feelings,
L nn still loved Earl. "I always
loved him. I lo. ed him so much
and I \ias taught that when you
get married it's always forever.
I knew there was a good side to
him."
L. nn admitted that as long as
the other woman was in the pic-
ture she would never have
another chance. Earl's girl-
friend eventually left him. Lynn
moved on with her life and
dated several men during.the 13
years she was divorced and.
remained friends i th Earl.
It was their daughter's wed-
ding that brought them back
together, buy Lynn will tell you
"it was the Lord who got us
back together." As Lynn and her
daughter made plans for the big
day they notified Earl that he
would have to help.
"I told him that if he didn't.
pay for it, he couldn't come to
the; wedding," Lynn said. "He
agreed. After that, one thing led
to another."
Lynn was fortunate enough
to be engaged to a man who
wanted only the best for her and
respected her wishes when she*
chose to go back to Earl. "He
%&as a great guN. All he wanteded


was for me to be happy," Lynn
said about her fiance.
And happiness is what she
found. Earl and Lynn remarried
on June 3, 1993. Although,
Lynn was apprehensive in mak-
ing the announcement to their
children.
"I was scared how the kids
would feel," Lynn said. Their
children were delighted about
them being reunited.
In 1996, Earl had to retire
after getting too sick to drive
his truck. Lynn said he was not
producing enough white blood
cells and he almost had to be
placed in a wheelchair. She quit
her job as a cashier at a food
store to stay homeand take care
of her husband. It-* took four
years to recover and to this day
he is at about 90 percent of what
his normal blood cell count
should be.
Doctors have told him to
work out in a health club to
keep his muscles strong. The
Bosleys took the exercise seri-
ous. and have been training the
past several months for the
triathlon happening in Sebring
today.
Their religious upbringing
has kept their faith and mar-
riage strong. "Marriage is a lot
of work. You have got to really
lo\e somebody to make it
\%ork," Lynn said.
She emphasized that a couple
has to hae their otn interests
and at the same time share a
common ground \ ith their part-
ner. In addition to the triathlon,
Lynn and Earl enjo. riding
motorcycles, participating in
lawn nimoer races and attend-
* ing church at Bethany Baptist
Church in Avon Park.
Lynn's advice to all couples
is "you have to have communi-
cation, trust and believe in each
other."

Troutman set for Ivory Club speaker .


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The next
speaker of the Ivory Club will
be Florida House District 66
Representative Baxter
Troutman.
He currently serves on the
agriculture committee, business
regulation committee, commu-
nity colleges and workforce
committee and the legislative
commission on migrant and
seasonal labor. He also serves
as the vice chairman on both the
state administration appropria-
tions committee and the state
resources council.
The Winter Haven
Republica whose district
includes parts ,of Highlands


County, plans to seek a third
two-year term in the Florida
House.
Among
other things,
he will try
P again this
year to get
Njthrough a
bill creating
"virtual
School dis-
tricts," a
TROUTMAN new educa-
tion tech-
nology that would allow stu-
dents who .iie ill or otherwise
unable to attend classes in a
regular school ,room to work
from home and take online
courses.


Troutman has also pledged to
work for a bill that would allow
day labor agencies to offer their
employees a choice between a
check or a voucher card that can
be used for cash right on the
premises so that workers would
not have to go elsewhere to
receive cash. It would set limits
on what employers can charge
employees for check cashing or
transportation.
"We're looking forward to a
comprehensive update on what
they have been doing and what
they plan to do this next session
in Tallahassee," Ivory Club
chairman Steve Roberts said.
The 39-year-old Troutman is
one of three grandchildren of


the late citrus baron and one-
time gubernatorial candidate
Ben Hill Griffin. Cousin J.D.
Alexander serves in the Florida
Senate and another cousin, U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris, is run-
ning for the U:S. Senate.
He is the owner of an
employment agency .and has
investments in citrus.
The Ivory Club sessions are
held at Homer's Restaurant in
the Sebring Square Shopping
Plaza on the third Thursday of
each month and are open to any,
citizen who wants to be
informed and ask questions on
the issues. The meetings begin
promptly at 6 p.m. Those wish-
ing to eat should come at 5 p.m.

Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, confirmed
Spencer's report that hogs, wild
or not, are considered livestock.
Harpis said Fish and Game
doesn't deal with the wild hogs
that are destroying property
here.
Instead, she referred the
News-Sun to the agency's Web
site, which has a list of
approved hog trappers, who
charge fees in most cases.
Property owners; she said
have the right to trap and per-
form euthanasia. Night hunts
with spotlights are possible
with permits, but aren't typical-
ly allowed in residential areas.
"The hogs ate right up to the
entrance to the pens and
stopped," Larry Suggs said. "I
would say ,the hogs have been
in pens before."
Suggs contacted I.W. Glisson
to set up a pen in his mother-in-
law's backyard, which the hogs
rooted to destruction.
Based on estimates he's
received, Suggs expects to pay
$3'000 to resod his mother-in-
law Valerie Wallace's lawn.
- One of the concerns of Suggs
and other residents present
Thursday was that the hogs
were being released at
Highlands Hammock State.
Park.
When contacted Friday
morning, Glisson said he does-
n't release them.
"I give them to people ... or
churches who want them for
barbecues," Glisson said.
"They're good eats."
He uses corn and molasses to
lure the hogs to the cages,
which he checks daily and
keeps stocked with water for
humane reasons.
Glisson doesn't charge for
his services, where other trap-
pers might.
"I don't even charge for the
corn I leave out," Glisson said.
Glisson's pen at Wallace's
house has been there for three
weeks but hasn't landed a hog.
"I guess one could say
they're-in hog heaven," Suggs
said, joking that the pigs are
enjoying the free corn, tearing
tp yards and avoiding the traps.
His concern is, if the hogs are
released, they're becoming
accustomed to the routine and
know to avoid the cages.
"Mainly, they're just destruc-
tive," Glisson said. "They're
not going to catch or bite any-

There are those who fear the
unknown consequences such
an ordinance could bring about,
but Eason believes that things
can only get better.
He cited complaints, includ-
ing many of "people so over-
crowded in houses that they're
'doing their business' in their
yards," and one of a woman
who "woke up and discovered
a man laying in her yard passed
out drunk." ,
"You're not going to know
what will happen (if the o~ri-
nance passes). But I think we
should have the courage to
stand up and try to change this
mess," he said.
The final public hearing for
the ordinance will be at 6 p.m.
Monday, July 24, at the Avon
Park Community Center, 300
W. Main St.


eled Lakewood Road.
By the meeting's close, the,
residents committed to a tele-
phone campaign beginning
with their commissioner, C.
Guy Maxcy, and other county
officials, including their con-
gressman if need be.
"I'm going to get with (coun-
ty administrator) Carl Cool and
animal control and see what the
county can do," Maxcy- said
Friday morning, in a phone
interview. "This is the first time
I've heard of this problem."
By Friday, Suggs and.
Spencer had spoken with
Maxcy..
Maxcy said he advised Cool
of the problem.
"I took that as a hog got pret-
ty aggressive," Maxcy said,
relating Suggs' story that a hog
chased a man trying to, get his
paper.
The community is looking
for answers, help and other
homeowners experiencing. this
problem.
Jerry Petraska said, "All of
the preventative measures
*we've done electric fences,
cages haven't worked."
Suggs volunteered to be the
point of contact and can be
reached at 385-3705.
"I realize we're encroaching
on their land," Suggs said. "But
Sebring is growing at an ungod-.
ly rate and these hogs are start-
ing to threaten people. We have
a problem on our hands."

body, unless a baby shoat is
involved and there's a mother
sow."
But, Spencer reports that a
tusked boar she calls "Mr.
Psycho" will stare her down
from 10 feet. Suggs said a
neighbor walked out to get his
paper -and was chased off by a
wild pig.
Glisson said the pigs are
looking for food by rooting up
the lawns. They eat the roots
and worms.
"I've woken up and seen as
many as eight or nine of them
standing by the fence," Spencer
said.
The swine come after 9 p.m.
and leave before 6 or 7 a.m.
Spencer and other residents
believe the problem started in
May, a few months after nearby
brush fires sparked new vegeta-
tion in their wake.
Bert Wode, who lives on
Alan Street, is concerned about
children who live in the area or
come to visit relatives.
"They're quiet," her husband
Claude Wode said of the hogs.
"We had the seven of them in
our yard the other night. When
you walk out there in your yard,
you're easy prey for them."
In addition to the destruction

lacking any care and love from
me at any point."
She even vowed to send pic-
tures periodically so that
Lauren Bryant could see that
the puppy was loved.
This,' according to Sgt. Rod
Dilling of the Lake Placid
Police Department, is a com-
mon ploy used by scam artists.
"Crooks try to establish cred-
ibility through saying what a
good person they are," Dilling
said. This tactic is used to make
the victim ihore trusting and
easier to deceive.
Also in that e-mail, Campbell
informed Bryant that she would
be sending her a money order or
certified check to cover not
only the cost of the puppy,
$600, but also the added cost of
pick up and shipping.
"So please, as soon as you
receive the money order or cer-
tified check, go and cash them
immediately,,deduct the money
that accrues to you, and send
the balance to the head office of
the company that handles the
shipment in London, England,
via the nearest Moneygram or
Western Union agent in your
area. Deduct the Western Union
charges from the balance and
send the remaining to London,
England, immediately," she
wrote.
This, according to Dilling, is
another common ploy.
"I've worked as a 'detective
for eight .years, and have
worked a lot of these types of
scams. The bad guy finds, espe-,
cially online, something for sale
and the buyer may e-mail back
and forth for awhile. Even
though you have a price for the
item for sale, they say that they
will send a money order for a
greater amount for any number
of reasons.
"What they're doing is
counting on the time they know
it will take the bank to discover
that the check or money order is
counterfeit. They ask you to
wire the extra to them right
away 'and next thing you know,
you've sent good money after
-bad," he said. "By the time the
-bank realizes, it's too late-
'and they have no recourse but

Lauren Gregg, of Lake Placid, talks about a money order she
received in June that turned out to be counterfeit.


to come after you and freeze
your account."
This is exactly what hap-
pened with the Bryants.
Campbell sent a
TravelersExpress MoneyGrani
International Money Order in
the amount of $2,700 to Lauren
Bryant on June 8.
Still skeptical, Bryant con-
tacted ,the sheriff's office in
Lake Placid before taking the
money order to the bank, but
was told that the department
was closed for the month of
June.
"So I took it to the bank
(Wachovia in Lake Placid) that
same Thursday and deposited it
into my account," she said. At
that time, she said the bank
teller told her the money order-
would be cleared by the follow-
ing Monday at midnight and
accessible by Tuesday morning.
Still uncomfortable, Bryant
decided to go back to the sher-
iff's office the next day, June 9.
"I told them that I had to talk
to someone, that it was very
important," she said.
With her, she had a copy of
the money order and a printout
of the first e-mail she had
received from Campbell.
"The officer told me, 'If it
clears, then what's the prob-
lem," she said. "He acted like
he thought I was crazy."
But, come Tuesday, Bryant
called the bank and said they
told her the money was avail-
able. So, she went to the bank
and took out the money she had
promised to wire to Campbell's
"agent. :
Immediately,' she went to

where she had sent $2,000 to a
Olatunji Yusuff Segun, the
name she had been given by
Campbell. With the service
charge, the total paid to Western
Union came to $2,114.
Unfortunately, Vincent
Bryant discovered Friday morn-
ing of that week that jn bank
lingo, "cleared" and "funded"
mean two different things. He
discovered while doing some
online banking that their per-
sonal account had been frozen.
After some investigating, he-
learned that "by federal law,
banking institutions have to
fund money orders that are
deposited.
"But you ask anybody what it
means if a bank 'clears a money
order' and see what they say. I
didn't know cleared doesn't
mean 'cleared.' No one, not the
bank, or the officer, told us that
there's a difference between
'funded' and 'cleared.'"
That lesson will not be soon
forgotten by the Bryants, as it is
being drilled into their heads
daily as they juggle paying their.
bills, keeping checks from
bouncing, and striving to come.
up with the money to pay back
to the bank for its incurred loss.
Dilling said the first thing
people need to ask themselves
in a situation like this is, "Why
does this person trust me with
all this extra money to begin
with?"
Money order fraud is a lot
more common than people may
think.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring Jibrary
was founded by the Women's
Club of Sebring and run by vol-
untee i from that club for the
first four years of its existence.
It was located in the base-
ment of the Sebring Board of
Trade now the chamber of
commerce on the historic
Circle.
The library became so popu-
lar-and busy the city took it over
in 1923, hiring its first profes-
sional librarian.
In 1968, the librar), moved to
its present site, but the original
building was smaller, and the
entrance laced Highlands Little
Theater parking' lot, -and was
reached b\ a step flight of steps.

eye; while behind the scenes a
storm of people are in frantic
motion.
Stepping out from the calm
eye of the orderly stacks and
stepping into the main room
was a shock.
Desks were piled high with
books, video cassettes, papers
and all kinds of things.
But Schilling knew her way
around her desk.
What seemed a disorganized
mess to me, was in order and
made perfect sense to her.
Sometimes she even gets the
desk top clear. But that doesn't
last long. Like she said, there's
always something else to do.
For example, processing
incoming books and DVDs and
so on, back into the system.
I learned there is a bin
behind the wall where the
return book slot is. It is lined
with thick sheets of foam, but,
books still rumble and crash
loudly falling into it.
Every item is inspected, then
scanned back into the data
base. If there is damage the
item %t ill be put aside for
repair, and a comment logged
onto its listing.
Items have to be inspected
because some people do
remarkable things..
"We have most\ great
patrons." Schilling said. "'But
' you wouldn't believe ho:
some people damage books
and other things. Absolutely
horrible." And of course, she
added, what damage was done,
it was never done by them, so
they saN.
She told a story of one da\
hearing a volunteerr making a
distressed semi-screaming
noise and qui\ering by the
intake desk.
Schilling could tell from
across the room that something
was very wrongg .
She rushed o:er and saw

"ands she said. pouring out of a

been returned. So man\ ants

Estela Patrick jokes with patron Eddie Heriberto-Arocho. He was renewing his library card at Sebring
Library. The renewal is simply a chance for the library to be sure its data is up-to-date. Patrick, who is a
library assistant is one of four who man the desk. Another assistant spends all, her time. cataloging books.
That is entering information into a data base. The information is the same as what was kept in old-fash-
ioned card catalogs.

No one asks for a whiplash
injury they are nearly always
a surprise and rarely the fault of
the victim. But they are very
common. In fact, more than I
million rear-end collisions
occur every year in the United
States.
Most cases of whiplash are
minor and heal within a few
weeks with the proper care.
Unfortunately, a small number
of patients about 20 to 30
percent, of, whiplash cases -
become chronic and lead to
long-term discorhfort,
Whiplash consists of some
classic symptoms. Usually, the
symptoms occur immediately
after the crash, however some-
times they may take weeks or
even months to appear.
Here's a list of the most com-
mon symptoms: headache,
neck/shoulder pain; dizziness
and muscle spasms.

How did it happen?
The key to recovering quick-
ly from your whiplash injury is
to understand how it occurred.
It's hard to sort out the truth
from the myths of whiplash.
This article is to help you
understand how you were
injured and hdw you can get
well.
Your spine supports your
body weight, aids in movement
and serves as a passageway for
your spinal cord and nervous
system. The spine is made up of
25 mobile bones, or vertebrae,
that are individually designed
for specific roles. Each vertebra
is separated by a tough disc that
cushions the bones and allows
flexibility and movement. The
spine, as a whole, with it's
many bones,, ligaments and
discs, is capable of'very large
motions. But each individual-
joint by itself allows a specific
number of degrees of move-
ment.
The neck is the most flexible
part of the spinal. It allows your
head to move in practically any
direction. But, it's fle\ibilit\.
also. makes it the area of the
spine most vulnerable to injury.
The key to the movement of the
cervical spine (or neck region)
is what is known as the facet
joint, which is part of each neck
vertebra. All of these neck facet
joints moving together make it
possible for the head to move


tient'

forward, backward, sideward
and rotate.
The bottom line on whiplash
is this: Your body was not
designed for the abnormal
motions that occur during a col-
lision. Normally, when your
head moves forward and back-
ward, all of the vertebrae partic-
ipate within the normal physio-
logical range. Whiplash, how-
ever, is not normal motion.
During a collision, which
takes place in about the same
time as a snap of your finger,
your head is thrown backwards
so forcibly and quickly that
your body does not even have a
chance to respond.
As said earlier, the facet
joints allow smooth, controlled
forward, backward, sideward
and rotational, motion of the
head and neck. And each joints
participates to aid this motion.
Let's look at what happens to
your neck during the four phas-
es of a collision.
Phase 1 You're' sitting in
your car, with your head and
neck positioned normally.
Phase 2 Immediately after
impact, the car seat shoves your
back and chest forward. This
results in your spine straighten- -
ing.
Phase 3 Next, within just- a
fraction of a second, your head
and neck are thrust backwards,
while your chest is still moving
forward. These two parts of
your body are yanked in oppo-
site directions. This results in
sharp bending in just one or two
joints in your neck. Instead of
the joints moving together, all
of the stress is focused in one
small area of your spine. This
bending in certain segments of
your neck can easily damage
intervertebral discs, sprain facet.
joints, as well as strain liga-
ments and muscles.
Phase 4 Finally, your head
is thrown forward, ending the
whiplash motion.
Although many different
parts of your body can be
injured in whiplash, the' very
latest scientific studies show
'that it.is the bending of the
spine that causes the most harm
All of .the most common
symptoms of whiplash can be
traced either directly or indi-
rectly to the trauma your neck
experiences. Four major tis-

As part of hurricane preparations, consider volunteering


Sp.roal i Inil.l' u ,.S0 1
ORLANDO-As Floridians
prepare themselves and their
families for another hurricane
season, government and non-
profit officials are urging them
also to prepare to help others if
a storm should strike the state.
"Generous volunteers meet
essential needs. Their ureless
efforts help supplement %what
government programs pro% ide."
said Scon R. Morns. Flonda
long-term recover. director for
the. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
"Volunteers tackled the chal-
lenges of last ,ear's hurricane
season head on: and %we encour-
age a redoubled volunteer effort
this year. And to make disaster
.t olunteerisni more effective.
residents should consider how
and where to volunteer now,
before a storm strikes. "
Close cooperation among
federal and state officials and
nonprofit organizations is criti-
cal to successful disaster relief
and recovery efforts. For its
part, FEMA uses voluntary
agency liaisons to assist volun-
tarn agencies "with federal assis-
tance programs, coordination
with other volunteer organiza-
tions. donation management.
and identifying special needs
populations.
Volunteers have proven
indispensable in past disaster
response and recovery efforts in
Florida. Last year's hurricane
season was met w ith a wealth of
donations and volunteerism
from Florida individuals and
organizations. In 2005, volun-
teers staffed phone banks, dis-
tributed emergency food and
water, and cleared debris in
response to Hurricane Wilma -
and the other hurricanes that
tested Florida residents during
the 2005 season.
In many cases, olunteerism
that w as initially a response to
Hurricane Katrina both to the
devastation along the Gulf
Coast and evacuees who came
to Florida after the storm -
dovetailed with Wilma response
and recover\ initiatives.
Volunteer efforts from past hur-
ricanes, and the networks
developed to speed those
endeavors, proved vital and
were strengthened even further
by last year's response.
"Given Florida's recent his-
tory of hurricane activity, we
are especially aware of the
value of neighbors:, helping
neighbors those who volun-
teer their time and talents to
rebuild Florida communities,"
said Craig Fugate, director of
the Florida Division of
Emergency Management.
"Volunteers are the unsung
heroes that truly help change
outcomes in the recoverN
process., urge all Floridians to
get involved. volunteer. and
make a difference in their
homelow ns."
According to statistics com-
piled by Volunteer Florida, the
Governor's Commission on
Volunteerism and Communiti
Serve ice, during the 2005 hurri-
catneseason, some 112,600 vol-
unteers contributed 4.7 million


hours of ser\ ice state% ide. The
total volunteer contribution in
response to Florida's 2005 hur-
ricane season, including in-kind
donations and total volunteer
hours. \\a.s valued at $105.6
million (up from an estimated
volunteerr contribution of $102
million in 200-41. Those partici-
pating in the volunteer efforts


included faith-based groups.
United Wa% chapters, local vol-
unteer centers and hunger-relief
organizations. Those affected
bh the 2005 hurricanes received
5.8 million meals prepared or
donated by volunteers.
Corporations, relief organi-
zations and private individuals
donated 7.9 million bottles of


water and nearly 257,000 bags
of ice for hurricane relief. In
addition to these efforts inside
the state, many Florida volun-
teers traveled to other areas of
the countrN affected by hurri-
canes during the 2005 season.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Plunging into

the depths
Years ago, our family
went on a glass bottom boat
ride. The surface scenery
was beautiful. But there was
a world taking place beneath
us that % e '. wouldn't ordinar-
ily see.
Looking into the depths
of that clear body of water
was amazing. Suddenly our
eyes were riveted on the
treasures beneath rather than
those on the surface. After a
time, our guide instructed us
to pay careful attention.
Within moments, he took,
our boat over an area that
was suddenly clearer and
deeper than where we had
been before. We couldn't
believe our eyes. And we
realized that this was only a
small glimpse of the amaz-
ing wonders of these partic-
ular.waters. We could onh\
imagine what divers experi-
ence in the depths of the
sea.
Since I anm less than com-
fortable in the \Jater. such.
an epenence % ill net erbe
mine. Instead, I rely on the
feats of under%- %ter divers to.
bring back thrilling stories
of their escapades.
The same may be true of
plumbing the depths of
God's character of know-
ing him in ways that are far
more personal and trans-
forming. Ho.% et er. getting
there means lej\ ing the
comfort of a surface rela-.
tionship and being willing to.
look deeper during times of
testing and trial.
If we keep our eyes on
the circumstantial surface.
%te'll mr;iss the hidden \\on-
ders of the truths God has to
teach us. \\e'll miss know-
ing himr in '\a s that onhl
come %'.hen our boat lea\es
one depth of disco) erN 10
explore one sull deeper
Those times of faith-
walking are more demand-
inc than our "e\erida\"
faitfih-%alk For some it may
come as time of financial
distress loss of a loed one,
illness., relational un':ertain-
tN or self-doubt: not to men-
tion man\ others.
But in e\erN situation. it's
as if God is car inm out a
deeper place 'thin us. As
he does his \ork and %ke
open ourselves to what he
\. ants to teach us, he fills
that opening with himself.
Then we're given a glimpse
into a facet of his character
that te didn't haie before.
For example, we may
know more of his Father
heart \% hen one of our ow n
is hurting. If %e suffer the
loss;of a relationship, we
can.know the extent of his
love in wanting to restore
our relationship with him.
When one of our o: n prodi-
gals comes home. \e share
in the bubbling joy of his
heart when a sinner repents
and comes home.
"Oh, the depth of the
riches of the wisdom and
knowledge of God," based
on Romans 11:33, NIV.
Plunge more deepl\ into
the eternal, unfathomable
depths of our Lord. Selah.

Camp out at library with a good book


One of the good things about
keeping up with friends from
your childhood is eventually
you realize that they're the only
ones sharing your memories.
Such is the case with a girl-
friend who knew me from early
elementary days. Her recent e-
mail talked about a Northern
Michigan church camp we both
attended. Her memories were
triggered by the outdoor smells
after a thunderstorm. She was
fortunate enough to be able to
go to camp a number of sum-
mers, while I only got there one
summer and one short winter
weekend, but we both agree that
the camping experience was
unforgettable'.
Were you ever a camper? My
daughter the nurse volunteered
at an area summer camp for two
weeks every year for some 15
years and she agrees that the


camp experience was
so powerful that
there were tears at
the end of every
camp week. One
camp director told
me that they regular- I
ly had to locate and
counsel reluctant
campers who didn't LIBRAi
want to go home.
There are many Car
ways to enjoy the HCa
camp experience, es
including day camps,
weekend camps and
camping on your own. Kids will
get a kick out of "Camp Rock
'n' Roll," "The Case of Camp
Pom-Pom," "Camp
Saddlebrook," "Camp
Trouble," "Camp Ghost-Away,"
"Camp 'Big Paw," "The Camp-
out 'Mystery," "Camp
Kikapoo," "'Camp Crocodile"


'olyn
selink


or "Camp Knock
Knock." Don't laugh
at the silly camp
names, there's a
much-loved northern

Is all that lawn necessary?


This is another in a series of
articles written about the new
area urban conservation pro-
gram called Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods.

Why do you really have all
that turf grass area? Was it there
when you purchased the home?
Do the rules and regulations of
your homeowners association
specify a certain amount of
lawn area? Do you want a nice
grassy area for the kids to play
on? Speculation is that. the
expansive lawn areas were,
started by the European aristoc-
racy as an indication of their
-wealth. The lawn was a status
symbol that spread to the
United States when our popula-
tion became wealthy and had'
enough leisure time to emulate
their European ancestors.
By far the most .questions,
askedd.,pf me and the Master
- Gardeners are in regard to lawn,
problems and care Should you
assess the cost of the care of
your yard the turf area will


probably be the most
expensive. Of
course, lawns do
have their good
points; they are
pleasing to the eye
and they act as a
buffer by absorbing
runoff and pollu-
tants.
If you are ready to
let go of some of
your turf area; you
may want to do a'
phased approach
such, as expanding
the existing planting
beds outward,

Strohauer chosen as Artist of Month


LAKE PLACID .- The
crafter of the month for July at
the Caladium Art & Crafts Co-
op is Berneita Strohauer.
Strohauer has been sewing,
quilting, knitting, crocheting,
embroidering, doing needle-
point and counted cross stitch
for many years. As a child she
learned to make dresses in
grade school on a treadle
sewing machine. She -took
sewing classes in high school
.arid her parents bought her an
electric sewing 'machine for
graduation.


After she married, she began
sewing and knitting for her
family. She tailored three wed-
ding gowns, suits and pants for
bridal parties.
Strohauer has been doing
counted cross stitch and needle
point for 30 years doing numer-
ous seascapes, landscapes,
china portraits, flowers and
birds. One of her latest achieve-
ments, "Tranquil Church" is on
display at the Caladium Art and
Crafts Co-op. It took Strohauer
approximately, 800 hours to
complete. She also specializes


in winter and Christmas scenes.
Her latest endeavor has been
"Ivy," a counted cross stitch
clock, truly a collector's item.

remaining cypress wetlands.
If you are putting in some
new turfgrass use Bahiagrass as
it is more drought tolerant and
pest resistant than St. Augustine
and therefore you will use less
water and pesticides.

YOU' "IT"

Tw'o of the most common children's games are
"Tag" and "'Hide and Seek." where the object is
to avoid being tagged or even seen (in the case of
Hide and Seek), by the person who is "it." The
person w ho is "it" is imagined to have some type
of stigma attached to them, to the point wherewee.%
c. can't even let them touch or look at us, Tti,
Sorts of games highlight the importance of our- J
not wanting to be seen as different by others. No
one wants to be "it." and even children seem to
feel this strong sense of wanting to be like
everyone else. And although this fear of being
different actually is a reflection of our wanting to
follow the crowd, isn't there something more
special about being trnily ,unique? We should
celebrate our individuality and work
passionately at beco unique person all
of us arie, instead c that we \\ill be
thought of as eccentr it odd. We should
learn to love and e isue our individual
eccentricities that Go ,'en us, especially if
the\ are part of our 'f. And most of all,
don't be afraid of "it r right; you're "it."
And you're terrific! [

Overcoming mealtime isolation


Special to the News-Sun
According to the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration, there
are numerous barriers to seniors
achieving proper nutrition.
These include financial con-
straints to food purchases;
adverse reactions to medica-
tions (for instance, affecting
appetite); or medical problems
that limit shopping/cooking
abilities or interfere with the
enjoyment of food.
However, one of the most
prevalent of these barriers is
also one of the most readily cor-
rectable: social isolation. The
FDA's Growing Older, Eating
Better brochure (online at
www.fda.gov/fdac/fea-
tures/296_old.html) indicates
that seniors who live by them-
selves may be too lonely or
unmotivated to cook nutritious
meals for themselves. Others
may not know how to cook --
especially widowed men whose
wives handled food preparation


in the household.
Thus, isolation often results
in seniors attempting to meet
their dietary needs by snacking
- perhaps on unhealthy foods
- or just skipping meals alto-
gether. These poor nutritional
habits can result in a diminished
quality of life; longer times of
recovery from illnesses and
injuries; and increases in the
cost and frequency of admit-
tance to hospitals or other care
facilities.
However, the FDA suggests
that simple companionship and
a bit of well-placed assistance
can help lonely seniors get back
on the right track to good nutri-
tion.. For instance, family mem-
bers, friends or neighbors, or
professional caregivers can
check on or even join sen-
iors to ensure they're eating
nutritiously and regularly.
Another good idea is for these
"interested others" to prepare.
these meals for seniors.


Use


'Tufts Food


Guide Pyramid'


Caregivers providing meal
assistance to seniors should fol-
low slightly different nutritional
guidelines than the ones in use
for younger adults. The "Tufts
Food Guide Pyramid for Older
Adults" (online at
,w w.fda. g'ov/fdac/fea-
tutes/296_old.html) uses as its
base not a grain/cereal level -
as with the USDA pyramid
designed for younger persons
- but instead a foundational
requirement suggesting seniors
drink at least eight 8-ounce
glasses of water or certain other
non-alcoholic beverages .daily.
The guide to this. pyramid
(online at


nutrition, tufts., edu/pdf/guide-
lines.pdj) explains this is
because seniors tend to con-
sume insufficient fluids, due
principally to a diminished
sense of thirst.
The Tufts Food Guide
Pyramid for Older Adults then
moves up through the following
levels: grains and'cereals; fruits
and vegetables; dairy products,
legumes, lean meat and fish,
and eggs;, and fats and sugars.
Finally, this pyramid is topped
with a vitamins/supplements
"flag." This item another
that does not appear in the
younger persons, USDA food
pyramid -- is a response to the


fact that seniors frequently
require additional calcium, vita-
min D, and vitamin B12.
So, most isolated seniors can
still meet their nutritional needs
successfully, though they may
need some help and guidance in
order to do so. Just remember a
few important tips. First, lonely
seniors often will benefit from
having company during meal-
times, or in some instances,
receiving assistance with meal
preparation. And second, who-
ever is preparing these meals
should consult the Tufts Food
Guide Pyramid when consider-

Agricultural Research Service gives update on brucellosis


Research Service is the
research branch of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture. In
the past, its work has brought us
products such as Deet (used to
repel mosquitoes) and
Superslurper, the magic stuff
inside of diapers that can soak
up many times its own weight
in water. Its monthly publica-
tion, "Agricultural Research,"
highlights some of their current
projects.
Diseases are a constant con-
cern in agriculture. Billions of
dollars are lost annually to plant
diseases such as head blight of
wheat, gray leaf spot in corn,
and fire blight of apple, as well
as threats to animals such as
brucellosis and tick fever.
During the past 10 years,
emerging and re-emerging
pathogens have become a major
health concern. Researchers are
coming up with better ways to
prevent the spread of disease
from wildlife to livestock by
vaccination.


Brucellosis, an
infectious disease of
both animals and
humans, has been
nearly eradicated in,
the United States,
mostly through coop-
erative .federal and
state programs begun
in 1934. But its
spread through
wildlife has rekin-
dled concerns in cat-
tle producers, who
suffer sever econom-
ic losses when their

herds are infected.
Research on immunizing bison,
elk and other animals in the
wild against brucellosis is
essential to agriculture because
cattle can get the disease
through close contact with
infected wildlife. Researchers
are seeking better ways to
remotely inject free-ranging
bison with RB51, the most


effective vaccine
available against bru-
cellosis in cattle. This
recent work involves
testing a new version
of a biodegradable
projectile. It has a
hollow chamber that
can be filled with
vaccine incorporated
into a gel. The vac-
cine-packed bullet is
fired into the animal's
muscle tissues, main-
ly in the legs. The
vaccine is released,
.and the casing, later


dissolves inside the animal. The
National Park Service is con-
ducting an environmental
impact study to gauge whether
this new projectile can be used
in Yellowstone National Park to
vaccinate free-ranging bison
against brucellosis. So far it's
proving to be effective..
Another disease' that was


eradicated in the United States
is tick fever. But ticks that
transmit the disease are still
found in Mexico, and keeping
them from crossing the border
requires strict inspection stan-
dards and pesticide treatment of
all live cattle imported from
Mexico. In the past five years
there has been a significant
increase in the numbers of
fever-tick infestations. Since
prime tick carriers are hoofed
wildlife species such as deer
and elk, scientists have devel-
oped a device to apply pesticide
to deer. They call the device a
"4-poster." It has a bin in the
center from which small
amounts of whole-kernel corn
enter feeding ports located near
each end of the device. When a
deer inserts its muzzle into a
port to feed, it must tilt its head,
and neck in a way that forces
contact with a pair of paint
rollers saturated with pesticide.
Later, when the deer grooms
itself, the pesticide spreads


enough to protect its entire.
body from ticks. Initial results
indicate that the 4-poster will be
useful for controlling cattle
fever ticks on white-tailed deer.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



Operation Guyana a taste of heaven


Believe it or not, I am actual-
ly writing this column from a
hotel room in Guyana, South
America. When it is finished I
will be able to e-mail it to the
newspaper to be published on
Sunday. Isn't technology
grand?
I am in Guyana at the
moment for the same reason I
was in Guyana last year: A.
medical mission trip. Don, the
boys and I have traveled with
others here to spend the week
running a medical clinic and
sharing the gospel of Jesus
Christ with thosewilling to hear
it.
We are at midweek as I type,
this. We have persevered
despite the surprises that crop
up on a trip like this. Surprises
such as 80 children for Vacation
Bible School. Five of us man-
aged to maintain a sort of con-
trolled chaos for the hour, and
everyone survived it.
.But something I thought
about and decided to, write
about was an answer to people
who think that I and the rest of
us here are some kind of super


Support for

Macklin's issue
Editor:
We have been following the
situation in Avon Park in
regards to the immigration
problem, and strongly support
Mayor (Tom) Macklin.
It takes a lot courage to make
changes, and Mayor Macklin
has an abundance of courage.
After a lengthy phone call with
him, we were extremely
impressed with his sound rea-
soning and even more con-
vinced that he is moving in the
right direction and certainly
should .be supported in his
efforts!

Predictions

being made
Editor:
On March 4, 1933, in his
inaugural speech, the greatest
president this country has
known, Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, made the statement,
"All we have to fear, is fear
itself."
Now. 73 years later the fear
factor is once again being used
by Karl Rove to influence vot-
ers. Rove is one half the brains
behind the. presidency. Re-
member the last time we had
*the color coded "Terror Alert?"
It was just before the 2004,
election. We haven't seen it'
since. So where did Rove get
the idea of making the public,
cower in fear of being attacked
and denigrating his opponents?
Why from his idol, who said
"Voice or no voice, the people
can always be brought ,to the'
bidding of the leaders, that is
easy. All you have to do is tell'
them they are being attacked,
. and denounce the peacemakers
-for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to, danger.
It works the same in every
country." Hermann Goering,
Hitler's-second in command of
the Third Reich, ;
The other half of the brains
is Dick Cheney, who in January
this year, made this statement
while defending the adminis-
trations illegal eavesdropping
program by raising'the specter
of terrorism: "As 'long as
George W. Bush is President of
the United States, we are seri-
ousrand we will not let down
our guard." In other words,
were here to stay!
Which leads me to make a
prediction:
Before this power mad.
administration .is due to leave
office we will have another cat-
astrophic event and Bush will
declare a state of war-time
emergency and no presidential
elections will be held. The
president will remain in power


beings for doing AURA
this that we are U RAS
really doing things
and experiencing Laura
things that average
people wouldn't
put up with.
Maybe they're right. Maybe I
have too high an opinion of the
average person. But it doesn't
seem that this is very difficult.
I admit it isn't a vacation.
We work. We work in a hot
country with no air condition-
ing. other than the wind God
sends and maybe a fan or two
for the people inside a room. At
the end of the day, I feel gritty,
sweaty and tired. I have bug
bites all over my ankles.
The vans we travel in also
lack the electric air condition-
ing we take so much for granted
in our cars in the United States.
They also appear to lack
shocks, given some of the jolts
we have experienced.
We are in a third world coun-
try. There is poverty all around
us. We deal with people with
problems every da., Some of


S LOOK

Ware


the situations I
have found out
about in talking
with people are
heartbreaking. You
can get discour-
aged, realizing you


can't fix everything that is
wrong.
And yet...
We are in a hotel that has air
conditioning, a bathroom with a
toilet and hot water, and free
Internet access. We have more
than enough food to eat. The
people we meet greet us warm-
ly.
Sunday we worshipped, at
someone's home. We met
underneath a lean-to outside.
Very different from %what %we are
used to. No electnc lights, no
carpet. No air conditioning:
But the people there were
dressed in their best and greeted
us with love. We started singing,
and the songs we sing in the
States were sung here too. The
accent might be different, but
the meaning was the same. In
spite of being hot and tired, I
felt a joy singing with my,


brothers and sisters under the
lean-to. I felt a connection.
This, I think, is a taste of what
Heaven will be like when
Christians from around the
world are together forever.
And even though we can't fix
everything, we rejoice in what
we can do. People are treated
for their ailments. They are
taught first aid and hygiene.
They are taught the Gospel.
And sometimes, people
respond.
And I have to admit when I
see my sons cheerfully and
without complaint step out of
their comfort zones and serve
others, it.gives the mother in me
tremendous joy.
Am I an abo'e average per-
son for doing this" I am not sure
I am. Perhaps, if more people
realized that what I gain from a
trip like this far outweighs any
of the inconveniences,. they
would consider doing like% ise.

as long as the state of war-time
emergency continues, the Bush
cabal will decide when, the
emergency is over. The govern-
ment will require tracking-
chips in everyone's passports,
national 'identification papers
will be required for train, boat,
or plane tickets. All persons
will be required to present their
ID papers when requested by
the authorities. These actions'
will be taken in the name of

Put thought .

into guns
Editor:
On July 2, the News-Sun ran
a column by (Publisher) Chip
Wigginton supporting the.
Florida law for concealed carry
of pistols.
The A&E channel's
"Investigative Reports" did a
program called Guns In
America awhile back. Using
FBI. statistics, ee cry five hours
a police officer is assaulted
with a firearm and every six
days an officer dies in the line
of duty.
"Investigati e Reports"
interviewed Athena and Jim
Mullin, a married couple. Both
were Chicago police officers
and both became far more crit-
ical of guns after Jim was shot
with a legally purchased gun
and became a quadriplegic.
According to Sgt. Terry
Shaw of the Illinois State'
Police, "People need to do
some soul searching when it
comes to buying a gun. When
that piece of lead leaves the
barrel, someone may die. Are
you willing and capable to use
that weapon to take another
life? If you're not, don't buy
the gun because anything you,
put in your hand can be taken


away and used against you."
The Violence Policy Center
did a study of similar law in
Texas and found that holders of/
concealed carry permits were
being arrested for a variety of,
crimes at a rate of two per day.
.Holders of. concealed carry
permits have committed seri-
ous crimes in Florida. The
Miami postal clerk who killed
another man, his own wife and
himself with a gun had a con-
cealed carry permit.
After Florida passed the con-
cealed carry law in 1987, both'
murder and rape rose for sever-
al years. By 1993, Florida led
the 'United States in. violent
crime.
Is it too much to expect that
a journalist like Wigginton
would know these things, or
research them, before he prais-
es the concealed carry law? Or
is his attachment to guns purely
emotional?

Information not

Editor: -
My father, Ross Johnson,
passed away on July 7 of this
year.
It was very important to the
family that the many people
who knew him were better
informed by the obituary about
his life.
Even though it was turned
into the paper on time by the
funeral home, the write up that
was turned in included that he
was preceded in death by his
wife, Loraine of 74 years; an
avid golfer and fisherman and


'There can be no real democracy if information is

controlled, manipulated and censored.'


that he passed a\ayv at. his
-home. This information was
excluded from the details.
So. I would like to suggest to
anN one who has an obiruarN for
the paper, to strongly monitor
the printing of your loved one's
life's information.

Band finishes a

great year
Editor:
Allow me to take this oppor-
tunity to say what a successful
year the Sebring High School
Band had during 2005-2006.
With just more than 100
members' (up from 65 the pre-
vious year),: this group of stu-
dents worked hard throughout
the year to earn awards and
acknowledgments.
They participated in the
fund-raisers each month to help
defray the costs of travel and
competitions. Besides staying
busy with performances, car
washes and sales, these stu-
dents had to rehearse their
music and keep up with their
grades., Some hold part-time
jobs. We highly commend them
for their achievements.
In an effort to recognize
these outstanding students, the
Sebring. Band Boosters
Association holds a banquet at
the end of the school year,
inviting not only all band stu-
dents, but their parents and
families as well. As you must
imagine, the SBBA could not
do this without help from the
community.
It is with much gratitude that
we offer a big thank you to all
who helped out. Winn Dixie
Inc. of Avon Park, where Tern

- I understand why impact fees
exist; I just don't particularly
like them.
I do like growth. I do like the
improved services and added
conveniences that result from
growth. I believe we can enjoy
growth without sacrificing the
beauty and allure of the area. I
believe, that additional bank
branches, dry cleaners, and
boutiques would add to the
appeal of the greater Sebring
area.
I could also be wrong, but I
don't think so. You see, I have
seen the nightmare side of such
things first hand. I hate to make
you sit through, another 'this
happened in Virginia' story, but
if you will indulge me this one
last time, I think the relevance
will become clear. Here goes ...
Back' in the early 1980s,
Petersburg, Va., was a city
experiencing consistent growth.
Home of Brown & Williamson
Tobacco, employment was high
and housing values' were
increasing. It was considered to
be Southside Virginia's retail
center, and a historic "Olde
Towne" area was in the early
stages of redevelopment, well
on its way to becoming a desti-
nation spot for dining and enter-
tainment.
The future looked great. So
great, in fact, that a mall devel-,
oper purchased land on the
southern end of the city and
announced their intended place-'
ment of a net malor regional
mall at the. location. The
\'irgirua Department of Trans-
portation announced then that
the plafined 1-295 would inter-


pact

sect 1-95 in that gen-
eral vicinity. Major
hotel chains began
construction in the
areas surrounding the
location of the new
mall.
The mayor and city
council felt they had a
guaranteed slam dunk
and began imposing
'impact fees', and
increased tax burdens
on the mall's devel-.
opers. The, forgot
one of the basic rules
of economics, 'you

charge what the market will
bear.'
As it became more and more
difficult for the developers' to
gain ground and move ahead on,
the planned project, neighbor-
ing Colonial Heights came call-,
ing. Rather than kill the Golden
Goose, they sought to nourish
it., They proinised not to assess
additional fees and taxes.
Instead, they offered tax incen-
tives, relocated wetlands .so as
to provide sufficient land for
development, and to begin cut-
ting a new exit off of 1-95 lead-
ing directly to the .ftereil 1ie. i f
the mall would locate there..
Colonial Heights, at best a
'bedroom community for
'Petersburg at the time and
located just 10 miles norih of
the orin !nal mnil location stole
the goose .and changed their tor-
tunes forever.
In addildinr, to the tour
anchor' jqnj rrend. .botiiqtiues
located v.iihin the enclosed
Southpark Mall, .idditmonal
retail', development took 'place


-ringing its perimeter.
S Wal-Mart, Circuit
City, Staples, Toys
'R Us, etc. quickly
followed suit.
Colonial Heights'
coffers' were over-
flowing from the
: sales. taxes, utilities,'
and real estate taxes
SHOT from the resultant.
residential develop-
. 'Chip' ments. All residents

-"" quality and quantity
of services.
In Petersburg,
Brown & Williamson had
closed its factory. Housing .al--
ues plummeted. The four major.
hotels were built in expectation
of traffic that never came. The
city's other enclosed mall;
Walnut Mall, lost its anchors to
Southpark Mall and struggled"
to survive for several years
before falling dacarit. as it sits
today. 'Petersburg has never
fully recovered from the greed- ,
iness of its leaders. Some peo--
ple say it is merely a bedroom
community to Colonial*
Heights' 'retail vitality.'
Ml fear is that the impact
fees now being imposed upon ,
businesses seeking to enter this
market will prove to be more.

retailers ,\ ill find a i, a\ to reach

sider the 'e\orbitant' fees that

count\
I would just like to feel con-
fident that our county's leaders


deeply analyzed the risk/reward
of imposing heavy impact fees
before doing so.
Can we achieve the long-,
term goals that such fees are
meant to help achieve %u thout
resorting, to imposing the level
of fees currently under consid-
erjiion? I don't know. I would
hope so, but I have not
reviewed all of the numbers in
detail. People, who have studied
the data, and are better posi-
toned to knov., say that we can.
I hope to' see some of my
favorite stores, such as Target
and Best Buy, opening in our
are:i in the foreseeable future. I
don't like having to drive an
hour and a half to their loca-
tions in Vero Beach or Port
Charlotte.' .
I admitted in an earlier col-
umn that I could be selfish on
occasion. I hope you can for-
give me for that flaw.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
July 17, 1996: Strong
pitching and some timely
hitting were the stories in
the first round of the Dixie
Youth Majors (11-12) dis-
trict tournament as Avon '
Park shut down
Okeechobee Amertldap'5-',01-
. and Okeechobee Natioltal -
blanked Lake Placid, 3-0.
Avon Park's L.T. Galimba,
Jason Jordan and Keith
Haywood combined to
throw a one-hitter. Galimba
crushed a pair of awe-
inspiring home runs to
lead the offense for Avon
Park.
15 Years Ago
July 17. 1991: Pitcher
Ryan Adair tossed a splen-
did one-hitter over six
innings and teammate
Joshua Haas singled in the
winning run in the third
inning, helping Avon Park
to a 4-3 win over Sebring
at Max Long Recreational
Complex. The win evened
up the Dixie Youth District
6 baseball tournament set-
ting up a rubber match
between the two teams.
Adair led off the home half
of the third with a single to
left field. Haas then ripped
a clutch RBI to up Avon
Park's lead to 4-0 before
Sebring put together a
three-run rally in the top of
the fourth.

out nine Tallahassee Capital Park hitters in
a long relief stint to lead the Sebrinng 14-
year-olds to a 7-1 victor \ on SaturdaX\.
The first inning started out a little
painful for both teams as their leadoff bat-
ter %was hit by a pitch. Sebring's Josh
Cha\ is would capitalize on the situation
by starting things out with a huge RBI
double and Dewey Sebring would keep
things going by driving in Chavis %with a'
ground-out.

The second inning is when the bats of
East Lakeland appeared. Carlos Guzman

additional runs for a5-1 lead.
Trey Olier hit a huge home run over

Jackson nearly perfect


as Avon Park 13s win


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Ty Jackson of Avon Park delivers a pitch during his nearly perfect
no-hitter against T&T Baseball in the first round of the 13-year-
old tournament on Saturday.


Spring Hill upends
Sebring 13s, 8-3
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer .
SEBRING It was impos-
sible to tell at the moment of
impact, but when Ty Jackson
turned on a high first-pitch
fastball in the first inning, that
was it ,
It's a simple equation, but if
out hit a home run and throw a
no-hitter, the odds are in \our
favor. .
Jackson did both on
Saturday as Avon Park
thumped T&T (Poinciana) 11-
0.,
The titanic solo shot to right
center was all Avon Park would


have needed to defeat T&T, but
just to make sure, they added
another 10 runs in the fifth
inning for an 11i-0 mercy rule
victory in five.
As breathtaking as the
homer was, it was Jackson's
lively fastball that suffocated
T&T. Getting stronger as the
game went on, Jackson kept
T&T from hitting the ball out
of the infield and would ha\e
thrown a perfect game had it
not been for a first inning walk
of the leadoff batter (the only
baserunner he allowed).,
I've been working with my
grandad," said Jackson when
asked about his approach on
Saturday. "He was a really

Lovett was obviously.
Pleased with his team's pitch-

"Our pitchers threw a perfect

said. "'We went up 7-0 on one

ting. It's hard to complain.

After Lang retired Chipley in
order in the top of the first

and sweltering heat led to a
defensive meltdown by
Chipley in the bottom of the

McCoin throws


no-hitter for


Okeechobee
News-Sun
SEBRING Okeechobee's Mikey
McCoin became the second pitcher of the
day to miss a five-inning perfect game by
just one walk as he handcuffed the Sumter
bats in a 10-0 win.
Earlier in the day, Avon Park's Ty
Jackson had a five-inning no-hitter against
T&T Baseball, allowing just a leadoff walk
in the first inning.
McCoin, who struck out three, was per-
fect with one out in the fifth inning when he
allowed his lone baserunner, but still faced
the 'minimum 15 batters after getting the
next hitter to ground into a game-ending
double play.
Okeechobee got all the offense it really
needed with a two-run first, then blew the
game open with a five-run third, getting
five consecutive singles from Mikey
Watson, 'Justin Conrad, Ethan McWhorter,
Brant Harden and Scotty Jones to take a 7-
0 lead.
Two runs on three hits in the fourth
extended the lead to 9-0.
Tr-City 9
Oak Griner 1
Pitcher Trevin Hall went the distance and
kept the Oak Griner offense to a minimum
leading Tri-City to a 9-1 win over Oak
Griner victory.
Taylor Dunham singled in the bottom of
the first and scored on a Damion Lowery
.sacrifice fly to give Tri-City the 1-0 lead.
Christopher White had the big hit in the
second inning when he belted a two-run
double to score Eston Walden arid T.J.
Granger.

Continued from 1E
good pitcher and he's been working with
me all week to get me ready for this game."
A tight. 1-0 contest was blown wide open
in the fifth when a severe rash of errors.
broke out for T&T. Four fielding errors,
two wild pitches and a passed ball led to
Avon Park batting around and plating 10.
Most of the runs were unearned off of field-
ing gaffs. but Omar Torres and Lacy Turner
managed to grab a couple RBIs to-pad the
offensive stats. .
Matt Ri\era dre\\ two walks and scored
twice and Chad Marley scored twice at the
top ofthe lineup. Favienette Cotte drew a
pair of walks and scored a run as well.
Jackson's near-perfect pitching was the'
story of the day, though.. Jackson rarely fell
behind in the count and battled back when
he did, amassing 10 strikeouts and blowing

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun

Marion County really did put
43 runs on the board in just five
innings against Melbourne on

no-hitter from Keyvious
Sampson, John Thomas and
Jesus Valle while pounding out
22 hits.
Marion County scored 11
runs in the first inning and 13

however.

two-run homer and a triple. B.J.
Robinson walked six times and
scored six runs and Andrew
Stichter also scored six runs and
had a double and a triple.

proved to be. enough for a 2-1


load the bases. Little came
home on Hensley's ground-out
and Joey Staffieri added a RBI
single and Borecky drove in the
final two runs of the inning
with solid single to deep right
field to make it 13-0.

unearned runs in the bottom of
the third, with Baker and
