'Unity' protest


planned to


oppose illegal


immigration


ordinance

* Oidincance as propi'sed to city council, see 2A.,
By ELAINE SEDLOCK
AVON PARK -Business o% ners, property ow n-
ers. and citizens are encouraged to participate in a
protest from 8-11 a.m Saturday in front of City Hall
on Main Street.
"Anyone not agreeing to Mayor iTomi Macklin's
proposed Illegal Immigration Relief Act who ish-
es to say 'No' to the ordinance, please attend." said
Patricia Austin, organizer of the demonstration.
"We're going to walk up and down the street in
front of cit. hall with signs, flags or anything to
show that we do not \'ant the ordinance to pass." she
said.
The protest is not limited to city residents or busi-
ness ow ners.
"We are asking the people of Highlands Count\
and surrounding counties to also come out and show
their support b\ saying 'no' because Lou could be
ne\t." she said.
It is her belief that the ordinance would destroy
the economy\ of Aon Park.
"\\e won't be able to grow\ or maintain business-
es in this tow\ n if the ordinance is passed." she said
"W\Ve don't want people to think that illegal immi-
grants are supposed to be here. But. we should tri to
help them find a %\a to become legal. not try to run
them out of to"wn. The\ should not have to like in
fear. This is the land of opportunity and freedom,
i nch is %hat A.-mci.ca i'. all about Tliis oidinance
is unconstitutional and could affect our community
in a negative way.".
Business owners are asked to attend at any time
during the protest.
Austin believes that closing the doors of busi-
nesses during this time \would ser\e as a powerful
demonstration to the city government.
Landlords and property owners. '\ho could also
suffer from the ordinance, are in' ited.
Austin thinks that Macklin is overstepping his
bounds b\ proposing this law.
"A job this big and nation'% ide cannot be correct-
ed overnight. But the federal government will cor-*
rect the problem in time." Austin said. "I worked
%with men and women in Iraq \ho are over there
fighting for our freedom e\ery day. and it just makes
me so sad to see this happening here." "
Petitions will be available to sign.
"Come and.say no Lruted we can do this,." Austin
said. :

AVON PARK Mayor Tom

campaign to see that the city of
Avon Park is relieved of the
burden of illegal aliens.
'Tm real particular about,
how I use the word immigrant."
he said. "limnumrants hate
amailed themselves to the legal,
process, embraced the culture,
and are Amencans. To use the
word inunigrant with the word
Illegal just rubs me the wrong
w ai People w\ho came here to
be an Amencan are privileged
to be an imninugrant not an
illegal alien."
Wiien asked to define termi-
nology in the. proposed ordi-
nance, Macklin could not do
ihat .
"I've made no secret to the
fact that from the onset, amend-
ments pan be offered to this
ordinance just like any other.
Anyone.who's been around
and, e\en passitel\. paid atten-
tion to how things are done,
would know that changes are
regularly made to these."
When asked if people could
be aiding and abetting by sell-
ing to illegals, Macklin said,'
"I've said that it would not pro-
hibit illegals from going to buiy
products.
When. talking abput the part
of thte'dirfarh'd addressing for-

was never his intention to hold
any company or parent compa-
ny liable for anything that hap-
pened prior to the ordinance.
The part of the ordinance that
says 'no less than a penrod of
five years from its last offense,'
She admitted could be interpret-
ed in that way.
"It is not my intention to
make it retroactive," he said..
Alacklin said people could
take this ordinance literally,
word, for word, but he ihas
always talked about what he

When people take a look,
they'll want to come back.
We're going to take it up to the
next level," Sherry said.
Fishing has been a hobby for
Sherry since his grandparents
introduced him to it when he
was 3 years old. He loves the
outdoors, and shares that with
his sons Matt, 25, and Nick, 23.
Sherry says his "other" job is a
contractor of Comcast Cable in
Illinois.
"I've always stressed to my
sons 'no money, no fun.' First
you must establish your career
and make a living," he said. ..
Sherry has been a profession-
al bass fisherman on and off for
nine years and went full time
last year. In Florida, he's fished
on .Lake ;Okeechobee, Lake
Toho, and the Harris chain. He
will be adding the Ranger line
of bass boats at Outback USA,_
"We'll be offering a guide
service later and setting up sem-
inars with pros from, all over the
U.S., Australia, Japan'and Great
Britain. The techniques and
knowledge will appeal to all
ages. I also plan to offer benefit
tournaments to help kids and
give back to the community,"'
Sherry said.
General :Manager Skip Dent
has been in the marine business
for 30 years.
"We're expanding, with a
new 3,000-square-foot mainte-
nance facility for our mechan-
ics, and a big (5,000-8,000
square-foot) new showroom
featuring bait and tackle and
boats. Depenrding on permit-

ting, we're hopeful that it will
be a real showcase by the end of
this year," Dent said.
Outback.,USA specializes in
bay boas,. flits boats and deck
boats and is the second largest
Bentley 'pontoon dealer in
Florida. They are "presently the
largest bait and tackle dealers in
Highlands County, offering arti-
ficial and live bait such as shin-
ers, minnows and worms. As a
full marine store, the staff can
service all boating needs and
supply any necessary parts. In
addition', Outback USA- gives
on-lake instruction and service.
It not only picks up and delivers
boats, but it can also store them
for the winter guests.
Dent leconlmends if any-
one's interested in a boat, for a
perfect fit they should first
determine exactly how it will be
used whether for fishing
only, cruising, skiing or pleas-
ure. For the first boat, be sure
it's affordable. The next ques-
tion is how much a person, will
use it. It's also important to buy
-local and bond with a dealer
who knows how to take care of

Grimsley, Children's Services Council

join forces against truancy concerns


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Members of
the Children's Services Council,
were so concerned about truan-
cy issues in Highlands County
at their spring meeting that they
created a sub-commiittee to
explore possible solutions.
That sub-committee met
Wednesday morning, at the
Children's Advocacy Center.
Joining the sub-committee was
State Representative Denise
Grimsley.
Grimsley attended because
policy regarding school atten-
dance is created by the state
legislature, and she x% as there to
be briefed on the subject
Members of the sub-commit-
tee told Grimsley about the
complexity and seriousness of
the problem which .often
rests in the hands of parents
who have no interest in their
children's education, or actively
work to sabotage it.
Educators throughout Florida
are dismay.ed b\ current police
The i say ii is one.of the inris
permissi\ e of states in terms of
attendance requirements. :.
For example, in Maryland,
secondary student 'have to.
attend school at least 94 percent
of the time. In Califomia a stu-
dent who has three full day
unexcused absences. or is lardy
or absent for a 30-nunute period
without an excuse .on. three
occasions is truant.
In Florida, on the other hand,
students are allowed 15 unex-
cused absences every 90 calen-
dar days, meaning a student
may skip school for a total of 30
unexcused absences a year,
Worse, students are allowed
another 15 days of excused
absences every 90 calendar
days as kell. That means a stu-
dent can rnuss two months of
school and not'irigger any con-
sequences.
Except, perhaps. for low
scores on the Florida
Comprehensive e Assessment
Test. which pull a school's per-
centages do%\n. :
Then there is another issue,
having to do with students who
are 16 or older. Parents are no
longer responsible for a child's
school attendance at that time,
and the school, therefore, has
no leverage to deal with them or


the students. Those students.
sometimes hang out at school's
witihoiit any intenuon of mneet-
ing academic obligations, dis-
rupting classes, setting a bad
example. Yet, Grimsley ,, as
told, it is very difficult, some-
times impossible, to \ ithdra'., a
student from the system.
She \xas told about various
consequences that could be set
into place, like withholding
grade credit, or hating teachers

by the

Motor Vehicles, is the only
meaningful deterrent to truancy,
9he was told.
Two representatives from
the State Attorney for Orange
and Osceola counties traveled
from Orlando to attend the 9
a.m. greeting.
Janie Uglione works on tru-
ancy issues and found otit about'
the meeting when she was surf-
ing the net exploring the sub-
ject. It was mentioned inyan
article and got her attention.
In her research, lighone said.
she sees a general worldwide
trend of schools having trouble
keeping their teens enrolled.
Here in Highlands County,
truancy rates are slightly. lower
than state averages.
At the state" level 14.8 per-
cent of students missed 21 or
more djas of school in 2(104-

Avon Park High School has
the most serious absentee prob-
lem; 23.1 percent of its students
missed 21 or more days of
school in 2004-05. Of the sec-
ondary schools, Sebring High
School had the lowest truancy
percentage. only 6.5 percent.

discussion, Grimsley said she

Prayer vigil planned for eve of final reading of ordinance


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun,
AVON PARK Ministers
and people of diverse faiths
throughout the community will
be uniting in an ecumenical,
peaceful, prayer vigil from 6-7
p.m. Sunday at Donaldson Park.
"This is open to anyone who
wants to attend but is intended
to be prayerful and peaceful,"
said Nancy Powers, of the
Florida Catholic Conference, in
Tallahassee.
Powers was asked to speak
on behalf of Father Jose
Gonzalez, of St. Catherine's


- -.low-

Catholic Church in Sebring,
because of her expertise in deal-
ing with statewide and national
policies concerning farm work-
ers and foreign immigration
organizations.
Powers has been communi-
cating with people all over the
state who are concerned about
what is going on in Avon Park.
She fears that most people real-
ly don't have the scope of
knowledge and understanding
of the immigration process nec-
essary to formulate an accurate
opinion on the proposed Illegal
Immigration Ordinance.


. "Many an immigration attor-
ney can't distinguish and deter-
mine with certainty whether or
not a person is legal by looking
at the paperwork. I think the
average American is not aware
of how complicated it is," she
said.
She said many times a person
can go from legal to illegal sta-
tus without even knowing it.


"There are lots
why people might
tus and they ma
out, then in again,'
From a religious

concerns is family unity and
that the existing immigration
process isn't family friendly.
"There are millions who are
here legally but have a family
member who is not. There are a
lot of complicated situations
and it's a great injustice to say
we should just kick people out
of town or country when fami-
lies would be split up by that,"


s of. reasons she said.
be out of sta- She explained that there are

s perspective, family, possibly for years,
of their main because their status has
changed from legal to illegal.
"We're not favoring illegal
immigration," she clarified.
"What we're saying is that this
ordinance is not just and doesn't
S sole anything "
Pov\ers said that's why reli-
gipus communities from differ-
ent traditions. have joined
together to support a compre-
hensive immigration reform.
"This would reduce illegal
.immigration by creating an
dr immigration system that func-
ears tions in a timely manner and
-b addresses the realities of


demand and available labor,"
she said.
Powers called the ordinance
"problematic in a number of
ways," saying, "There are a lot
of misunderstandings."
In reading articles and edito-
rial letters, she said there are
many who say, "What part of
'illegal'-don't you understand?
Please, these people are crimi-
nals."
"That's just not true," she
said. "The people who most dis-
like the current immigration
system are the illegal immi-
grants, because they don't want
to be illegal they don't want
to live in the, shadows in fear
and insecurity," she said.,
"Some people claim they
aren't against legals, only ille-
gals. But experience tells us that
this will result in racial profil-
ing of people kvho look or
sound like an illegal immigrant.
If business owners were to be
penalized for hiring an illegal,,
then they would probably err on
the side of safety, leading to dis-
crimination."
Powers said that the ordi-
nance is too broad, leaving too


much open to interpretation.
"Aiding and abetting is men-
tioned with some examples,"
she said. "But it would be easy
for someone to think that they
should not sell to or do business
with possible illegal immi-
grants."
She further stated, "This kind
of thing is so divisive and is
counter to Judeo-Christian val-
ues."
Powers believes that what
these immigrants need is com-
passion and understanding -
and for people to make an effort
to help reform the current sys-
tem.
"God didn't draw the lines on
the map," she said. "Not that
they shouldn't be there but
change the law, don't punish the
people who are victims of cir-
cumstances they didn't create."
She suggested that people let
their senators and congressmen
know that they are in support of
comprehensive reform.
The ordinance will come
before the council for a public
hearing at the Community
Center at 6 p.m, Monday.

pay for the missing gear, which
didn't seem fair to the former
soldier.
"He made a personal call to
me and said, 'You're not paying
anything,'" Eslinger said
Tuesday, recalling his conversa-'
tion with Foley on Monday. "I
stopped everything I was doing.
It kind of resolves your faith
and confidence in politics."
Foley cautioned Eslinger
upon their first meeting, saying
that he would drop the investi-
gation like a hot potato if he
'learned that Eslinger hadn't
provided the full story.
"I didn't want to go after the
Army if there was more to the
story than he was telling me,"
Foley said, explaining his cau-
tion: "We're asked to do things
for- our constituency daily.
Seldom do I get personally
involved."
Foley said Eslinger
approached him at the hotel,
saying that his grandfather had
described the congressman as a
"Man of action" which more or
less bound him, to step up on
behalf of the former soldier.
"Send me a bill if you're
going to send anybody a bill,"


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Daniel Eslinger, of Sebring, is
all smiles Thursday after learn-'
ing Monday that he will;hot be .
required to pay a $700 bill he
received from the Army for gear
lost during a tour in Iraq.

Foley said in. his June 2 letter
opening the congressional
investigation, explaining that
the financial charges levied
against Eslinger appeared puni-
tive on the surface.
The communication was'sent
to the Army's congressional
liaison and on Monday Foley
received a call from Army
Chief of Staff General Peter J.
Schoomaker.
"It seemed to be more of a


clerical error than somebody
going after (Eslinger)," Foley
said, explaining that
Schoomaker called the situation
a miscommunication among
those involved in the original
investigation of Eslinger's
missing or damaged equipment.
"It's a weight lifted of his
shoulders," Foley said of
Eslinger. "He was bouncing off
the walls yesterday."
In addition to help 'from
Fpley, Eslinger said retired Col.
Zane Thomas came to his aid.
"We sat down over dinner
several times and chatted about
old war stories," Eslinger said.
"He more or less brought me to
the realization of what was cor-
rect and wasn't correct (about
the paperwork)."
Even when facing the debt
before he was absolved of any
wrong-doing, Eslinger said he
felt no ill-will toward the Army.

HOGS
Continued from 1AN
setbacks.,
Beth Bohan, who's twin
daughters Laura and Amy
Bohan ride horses on the their
grandparents' (the 'McAnlys)
property, said Polatty's propos-
al was most fair because it
would allow those affected to
have direct input.
Bohan, the Wacks and their
daughters were friends for
years until the hogs became a
divisive issue.
Bohan said the pigs stir an
instinctual fear in their daugh-
ters' horses, preventing them
from effectively training in the
arena they built with clay from
out of state.
"We thought the horses
would 'get used to the smell,"
Bohan said, explaining that,
while a younger horse did,
older "set in their way" horses
such as Lightning haven't.
Laura said hogs spook the
horses as would the scent of a
black bear.
A 4-H volunteer, Bohan sup-
ports and believes in the life
taught through agriculture pro-
grams. \
"Their FFA program is just
as important as our 4-H pro-
gram," Bohan said.
Amy Wack is a member of
FFA whereas the Bohan girls'
are in 4-H, separate programs
with similar goals.
Her issue with the Wacks'
pig pen isn't because she dis-
likes hogs. She doesn't. Rather,
it's a safety issue for her daugh-
ters.
For several years, the
McAnlys and the Bohans toler-
ated the pigs next door until a
riding incident resulted in a


smashed riose for Laura.
The Bohans said one of the
Wack's hogs allegedly scared
the horse but the Wacks said it
could've been anything that
caused Lightning to rear back.
At one point. Bohan asked
the Wacks to' work together,
each family agreeing to run
their respective animals at dif-
ferent times to mitigate prob-
lems.
Bohan said the Wacks
wouldn't cooperate.
"I feel like we're failures
because this couldn't be solved
between us," Bohan said, walk-
ing, through her mother's pas-
ture from the fence at the Wack
property to their stable.
"We made sure a barn could
be built," said Bettie McAnly,
explaining that husband Bill
obtained the necessary permits.
"Zoning works. If the checks
and balances are followed,
there aren't any problems, I
would think."
A call to the county building
department showed that no per-
mit was pulled for construction
at 2005 Schlosser for a pig pen.
"The only reason it has been
working is because the zoning
department works on a com-
plaint-driven process," Wack
said, saying she wanted to steer
clear of the riding accident that
seemed to ignite this.
Whether the ordinance is
modified to allow daughter
Amy Wack to continue raising
pigs at their Schlosser property
is inconsequential, Wack said
her mission now is to ensure
that "all children have a right"
to raise pigs.
"That's the beauty of having
a place to keep a pig," Wack
said. "It makes it that much eas-
ier to take care of it."

BMX rider, unless he or she
later joins a racing team.
Youngsters who do not have
all the equipment are still wel-
come to give it a try. There are
always a couple of extra bikes
and helmets available for new
kids who want to see if this is
the sport for them.
"We do this for a limited
time, but if a kid really wants
to ride and the parents can't
afford a bike, we will help
them find a used bike and get
them started," Jones said.
BMX is a family sport, and
the parents of the riders play a
crucial role in keeping local
tracks open and active all.year.
"This track could not func-
tion, without the help of the
parents," according to Jones.
"All work at the track is per-
formed by volunteers, no one
is paid to do anything."
Volunteers help maintain the
track, work at the concession
stand, work on the bikes, help
organize the races and keep
statistics. During the races,
parents watch from the towers
placed throughout the track to
assure that every rider is safe
and in compliance with the
rules.
The riders themselves are a
big part of track maintenance.
They know how to groom the
track and how to build the lifts
for the jumps.
"They love their track so
much that they work on it.
Everyone does what has to be
done. No one comes here just
to sit and watch," Jones said.
Officials agree that track
condition is one of the most
important safety factors in rac-
ing. The Avon Park staff works
to pro\ ide a track that is rid-
able for the beginners and still
challenging for the older, expe-
rienced riders.
"'We cut down the size of the
lifts to make sure the kids go
forward and not straight up,"
Jones said. He estimates that
this cuts about 75 percent of
the risk. Keeping the clay sur-
face smooth and covering it
u\ ith tarps to minimize rain
damage keep the track safe for
- every t) pe of nder.

Shawn Griffith, builder and
now assistant track director at
Avon Park, is one of the people
who helped design and build
the track. Griffith has been rid-
ing since he was 13 years old,
and works with all of the rid-
ers, teaching them the skills he
had to learn the hard way.
"When I was growing up,
we didn't have a track like this
where I lived. We built jumps
in our own yards and just went
out and did it," he remembers'.
Griffith still rides and was suit-
ed up and ready to go with the
older riders.
Griffith's son Brandon, now
8 years old. has been riding
since he was 3, and was one of
the first kids to ride the new
track at Avon Park.
"He went out there as soon
as we finished and went
around the track on a little
clown bike," Griffith laughed.
Griffith's wife Tracy volun-
teers at the track, sometimes
working at the concession
stand, other times as score
keeper during the races. She
says she is just starting to learn
the registration system on the
computer.
Her parents, Loui and Andy
Bishop, come out every time
father and son ride. Andy likes
watching the kids get together


and have a good time.
"There is a competitive
atmosphere, but it's not like
being on two different' teams,
where there is rivalry. The.kids
who come up here laugh and
joke with each other," Bishop
says.
Loui Bishop says she loves
to watch them jump: "The way
they do it is different from any
other type of riding. Buit when
you see it for a while, you:real-
ize it is not as dangerous as it
looks." ,
"Jumping is not an event at
the BMX track," Mark Jones
adds. "Jumping is play time.
BMX is a bicycle racing'
sport."
'All the parents, track work-
ers and volunteers agree that
BMX riders are a family
among themselves. The riders
'get together and practice off
the track. visit one another's,
homes, and welcome new kids
readily.
"If they see you are really
trying. that's all they care
about. You don't have to be
great. you don't have to be
'cool' even the sh\ children
become part of the group. If
you have a genuine interest,
you are in," Jones said.
"It's a great sport for high-
energy kids.'"

Time is critical

To say the Illegal Immigration Relief Act pro-
posed in Avon Park is a hot topic is an understate-
ment.
What started quietly as a proposed ordinance dur-
ing a city council meeting has since grabbed -the
attention of the state through Tampa area news sta-
tions and the nation through The New York :Times
and CNN.
As proposed, Mayor Tom Macklin's ordinance is
too vague.
The ordinance, stipulates that any "for-profit" enti-
ty, including "acts committed by its parent company
or subsidiaries," that helps an illegal alien or illegal
immigrant will be denied a business permit. renew-
al of a business permit, city contract or grant for no
less than five years from its last offense.
It goes on to identify the terms of "'aiding and
abetting" and lists some offenses but throws in the
vague terminology of "not be limited to."
Red flag.
Those offenses include "the hiring or attempted
hiring of illegal aliens, renting or leasing to illegal
aliens, or funding or aiding in the establishment of a
day. laborer center that does not verify legal work
status,"
With that, we, have no problem. However, who
defines what the phrase "not be limited to" means?
When does that definition need to be known and to
whom?
To go further, .the ordinance stipulates that any
property owner or renter/tenant/lessee in control of
the property will also be in violation if they know-
ingly allow an illegal alien to "use, rent or lease their
property."
Second, red flag.
Does the term "use" mean that if an illegal alien is
visiting family and spends the night or-a couple of
nights on holiday that the person in control of the
property will be in violation?
The fine for such violation is listed as being. not
less than $1,000. Is that per person. per day, per
- month, per infraction, a total?
In the ordinance, Avon Park is declaring that
English will be the official, language of the city.,
Unless mandated by the federal government, the
state or the city, all "official city,business, forms,
documents, signage, telecommunication or electron-
ic communication devices" will be done in English
only. This could be a time and cost saving measure
by the city. and it is about the only thing in the pro-
posed ordinance with which we agree as written.
The only question we have is. will there be a grand-
father period for those who may be legal citizens but
still not speaking English?
The purpose of the ordinance is understandable.
but the problem lies in the way it is written.
Macklin said the proposal has nothing to do with
race. We believe him. Instead, he says it has every-
thing to do with addressing very legitimate and sub-'
stantiated problems that have plagued Avon Park for
many years. For that, we applaud him.
Macklin brought this concept before the city
based on a similar ordinance before the city council
in Hazelton, Pa. Hazelton officials passed their ordi-
nance last week.
The word "illegal", speaks for itself. By definition,
it means "prohibited by law."
"Illegal immigrants" should be dealt x% it h by the
law, not by city officials. Perhaps those who "aid
and abet" should be dealt with as well, but who will
police them if our law makers and enforcers can't
deal with the illegal immigrant situation as it is?
Last week, 61 "fugitive aliens" living in various
cities throughout Florida were 'arrested by U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation
officers assigned to, the Miami Field Office Fugitive
Operations Team. All of those detained are being
held awaiting to be deported from this country, so at
least something is being done.
America is made up of immigrants. We have long
referred to this nation as a melting pot, but we need
that melting pot to be those who ha\e gone through
the proper channels and received their citizenship
status. That's a no-brainer. How to make that happen
is the question.
S Macklin may be on to something, but more
thought needs to be given to the proposal as pre-
sented. To his defense, he has referred to this as a
working document ... a place to start. What we need
to make sure is that those businesses that have made
their homes inside the city limits are not going to be
punished for something they have no control over.
Eyes in the city, the county, the state and the
nation are on Avon Park right now. The city ... and
Macklin ... can either shine or make a major mess of
things.


Getting a solid understanding of the facts about
this controversial ordinance and its implications is
critical. Monday night's council meeting/public
hearing will be our chance.

opportunity, we need to speak
out regarding how the govern-
ment is going to spend our fed-
eral tax dollars. For example.
embryonic stem cell research
funding has been on the table in
Washington, D.C. As our sena-
tors have tossed this around. it's
our money the.',e been play-
ing with.
Why should the federal gov-
ernment use our federal tax
money to pa. for science that
involves the destruction of
human life? Thankfully,. our
president has asked the same
question.

making moves
Editor:
The Sebring Storm girls'
softball team, Dixie Belles ages
14 and under, left Sebring from
Albertson's parking lot on July
16 at, noon to head for
Columbia, S.C., in order to par-
ticipate in the International
Association of Softball World
Series.
What a wonderful event for
these, girls! They have played
their hearts out for the past sev-
eral months, and they got the
reward of an invitation to the
World Series.
I \wonder how many in our ,
community-knomw about this?.'I--
also %wonder. will there be any
publicity from the press?
There was a great article
about Avon Park High School
standout pitcher Amanda
Tindall. Did you know that
Amnanda's.sister Amber Tindall
is also a. pretty good pitcher,
too? -Amber is a member of the
Sebring Storm and is but one of
many reasons w%.hy the girls are-
heading to South Carolina.
Just wondering ...

The time to act

is right now-
Editor:
Americans should declare
political and financial war
against all who promote a guest
worker program, an amnesty
for illegals and those who say
we cannot expel illegals.
Pressure needs to be applied to
all institutions who give aid to
illegals (churches, banks; ,
schools, businesses) who hire
illegals, and any who have fed-
eral or state or county monies
involved. i.e. tax exemptions to,.,
churches.
"We the people" must aci on

REFLECTIONS
Jan Merop

Stemcellre search. org/faci.."tr
eannents.linn debunks the myth
that embryonic stem cell
research is curing patients and
is better than adult stem cells.
According to them it has yet to
cure a single human patient. In
fact, it hasn't gotten that far as it
fails in animal testing.
But, adult stem cells "have
already produced 70 cures or
treatments for various condi-
tions including ... breast cancer.
IN mphomas. leukemia, arthritis.
heart damage. Parkinsons.
Sickle Cell Anemia and other
disorders."
A poll conducted by the
International Communications


Research debunks another
myth, that an overwhelming
majority of Americans want to
spend federal funds on embry-
onic stem cell research. Fifty-
seven percent favored funding
only research that won't harm
the donor.
What is at the core of this
issue? Is it merely politics? Or
is there a force at work within
the heart of mankind that would
cause the life of one to be val-
ued and another dispensable?
It's understandable to long
for a cure for one w ho is suffer-
ing. But. it's easy to be
deceived when cures and
preservation of life of one who
is isible, respected. loved and
part of our liBes is pined against
an embryo not visibly or emo-
tionallh connected to us in some
%%ay. In our society. the pre-
ciousness of that early begin-
ning stage has lost its signifi-
cance.
However, had'that person
%w ith the ailment not been given
his basic right from the embry-
onic stage to full develop, he
might ha'e been the one in
question. Would he ha'e want-
ed to be used for embryonic


research b. science? Or, would "
"he hope someone would speak
against the travesty of taking a
life for experimentation no
mater how small in order to
save another
Why extinguish life?
Consider again that it has been
scientifically proven that the
results do not affirm any benefit
to living patients; while adult
stem cell research proves the
opposite and there is no loss
of life.
The Bible takes a stand for
life as seen in Deuteronomy 30:
19. NIV. Here God sets before
his people life and death, bless-
ings and curses and cotnmalnds.
"Now choose life. so that you
and your children may lye...
for the Lord is your life:"
Taking a stand for life takes
courage in this day, and ae.
Thankfully, outr president hias
drawn the line .and'put his -veto
upon it.

reaching immigration ordi-
nance. will certainly move us
toward a militant posture, one
that %would cause great mistrust
and fear in our communist ..
that is. if it stands up to the
multiple lawsuits it will gener-
ate. Opposition has been
expressed by city businesses.
cmius growers, dairy farmers,
the Avon Park City Chamber of
Commerce, and local churches.
While I am sympathetic w ith
the frustration of city council
members when they are con-
fronted with citizen complaints
about the condition of certain
dwellings in the city, I would
caution our representatives to,
take a longer look at the.reper-
cussions of this ordinance and"
ask them to simply table the
motion, appoint a study com-
mittee, get accurate facts about
crime and crowding, and to
consider a simple solution
offered to the council a few
years ago ... namely a rental
ordinance.
In a workshop offered in
early 2000, code enforcement
officers from South Daytona
and Ocoee came to our county
and. gave a presentation on the
benefits of having an ordinance
that would have all those
whose business it is to rent
housing, obtain a business per-
mit. This would allow the.city
to cite landlords who do not
rent according to city zoning,
i.e., single family, multiple
family, etc. and it would
require landlords to maintain
their properties. It would, also
force renters to take care of the
property or garner fines them-
selves.
These two cities cleaned up
their blighted housing with this
law. And, after all is said and
done, housing is the issue most
cited as the genesis of this
impending immigration ordi-
nance.
As a former Avon Park City


Council member I can say that
my service was one of the
greatest honors of my life. The
fact that 8.000 residents of the
city placed their trust in the five
members of the council, always
weighed heavily on me.
My hope no" is that the
present members of the council
will continue to. earn the sacred'
trust of the people they repre-
sent, by enforcing laws already
available to them, and by the
passage of new laws that %will
ensure the dignity of all people.
By doing so, Avon Park %%ill

coming mat for all our busi-

The impact of Bullard'


Regarding a recent letter (in
another newspaper) concerning
what, if any, government losses
would be incurred if a fast food
restaurant delays a new facility
because of the new proposed
impact fees, I can give you
some estimates of losses from
my years in the fast food busi-
ness in this county and what I
estimate for today's numbers.
An impact fee of $100 per
square foot for a restaurant with
carry out which is what
Commissioner Bullard is trying
to force upon us makes
building such a building eco-
nomically unsound. If the cost
would have been $175 per foot
before Bullard's Bullet, the cost
afterwards becomes .$275 per
foot.
Does the owner charge more
for his food than the restaurant
down the street and explain to
the customers that Commis-
sioner Bullard said we have to
bite the bullet, so pay up? No,
he simply does not build the
building. Therefore, the county
does not get the $100 per foot
impact fee (which, is $300,000
to $500,000 for a 3,000- or
5,000-square-foot building) but
also does not get the property
tax on the million dollar land
and building investment. That
translates into about $19,870
per year in lost property tax
income or $198,700 over the
next 10 years.
The personal property (signs,
tables, chairs, flyers, grills, etc.)
would bring in another $5,900
per year or $59,000 over ihe
next 10 years. Sales tax on the
lost sales would require more
than $70,000 per year .or
$700,000 over the next 10
years.
Add to .these losses the lost
income to local residents, the
lost payroll taxes and the lost


income to the suppliers and
service companies (air condi-
tioning repairs, fryers, ice mak-
ers, parking lots, etc.) and the
loss becomes magnified beyond
my basic calculations.
This loss of county income is
not the only insanity .in
Bullard's Bullet. Why does the
carry-out food industry get beat
up so excessively? What moti-
vates a commissioner to single
out one industry?
Apparently, the "experts
from afar" hired by Mr. Bullard
think that some penalty should
be placed on any business that
tries to be accommodating to its
customers. If- the restaurant
owner makes the mother with
three children park the car,
unbuckle the three children and
take them in the restaurant, pick
up the food, take it back out and
buckle up the children and drive
away, somehow this justifies a
lower impact fee than the owner
who says, let me serve you in
your car. The stop at a restau-
rant was going to happen any-
way so she wouldn't have to
drive all the way home and
back to feed the children and
then continue her shopping or
doctor visit, etc.
So you just had a knee
replacement and can only get
out of the car with great diffi-
culty. You would like the bank
to have a drive-through window
so you wouldn't have to get out
of the car? Think again.
Your intelligent commission-
ers know better. You need the
exercise. Get out of the car and
walk. Bite the "Bullard Bullet"
because otherwise, the bank has
to pay the commissioners more
impact fees if they choose to
build a drive-up window onto
their bank. Go figure!
So you think this is free
money that is going to come


from the deep
pockets of the "out GUEST
of town" investors?
Think again. Just Norb
drive U.S. 27
through our county
and total up the
number of businesses, that are
locally built, owned and operat-
ed. They greatly out number the
"out of town, deep pockets."
And speaking of those deep
pockets, why are you spending
so many dollars in other coun-
ties, leaving your sales tax in
those counties, leaving your
restaurant tips in those counties,
buying your gas to get home
from those counties? Why?
Because those companies are
not here yet! So tell me how do
you interest them in investing in
our small county of only
100,000 population? With
incentives, that's how. So what
does our wise commission
chairman suggest? The
"Bullard Bullet!" Hit them with
a big, and, I mean big, impact
fee. In fact, make it one of the
biggest in the state of Florida.
That will attract new business-
es.
And what does Mr. Bullard
plan to do after he rams this
Bullet down our collective
throats? He is leaving town for-
Tallahassee before the impact,
fees take effect. That stinks!
If he is not willing to stay and
experience the damage to our
county for the next two to three
years, I believe he, should
recluse himself from the vote
on this matter. Otherwise, it
may look like there are ulterior
motives for his insistence on
shoving this on the community
so quickly and then disappear-
ing to Tallahassee for whatever
purpose he has in mind.
(Someone told me Tallahassee
does not have impact fees go

figure!)
And you say,

cave into the pressures of the
Bullard Bullet, those commis-
sioners will get replaced shortly
by new commissioners who
will adjust the fees downward
in the near future. So why
should a bank loan money on a
house they know will drop in
value when impact fees get
reduced?
The community has had too
little time to absorb the poten-
tial damage of this proposed
impact fee schedule. Another
six months to a year of study to
determine issues like levels of
acceptable service and at what


price and potential impacts on
the growth of the county are
reasonable requests.
Why can't we first get an
answer to "What is happening
to all the new monies flooding
into the county government
from the $2 billion increase in
property values?' Other means
of funding must be studied fur-
ther. What is the rush? Unless
you are leaving town!

Norb Walz is a Sebring resident.
Guest columns are the opinion of
the writer, not necessarily that of
the News-Sun.


"I'm not going to
Walz build a business so
how does it affect
me?" There are
several ways:
1. Any resident of this county
associated with the building
business, from flooring to shin-
gles to lawn mowing will notice
that the new work is drying up
and it won't be returning until
the rest of the counties in this
state have impact fees that
exceed or at least match ours.
Mr. Bullard puts us at the
third highest fees in the state of
Florida. That means that even if
you are a new employee at the
building department, who needs
the extra employees, if we don't
have people needing permits,
you may get hit by Bullard's
Bullet.
2. So you would like to build
a new house on a moderate
yearly salary. A starter home
with 1,500 square feet of air-
conditioned space will pay an
impact fee of $15,800 or over
$10.50 per square foot. And if
Bullard's Bullet hits you once,
it will hit you twice when you
go to the bank to borrow the
money. The banks will not
finance the $15,800 impact fee
because- there is no material
value to justify it and. the com-
parables will not support it for
several years. The Bullard
Bullet will hit you twice. And if
you think the builder will eat it
forget it. So either you come
up with an extra $15,800 or for-
get the new home!
3. The banks won't loan
money for something that must
be reduced to.a livable level in
the future to revive the growth
lost by Bullard's Bullet. Even if
there are two .other commis-'
sioners who are so passive as to

Group has

varied opinions

Editor:
The Republican Women of
Highlands County have a wide
range of opinions of the pro-


posed Avon Park Immigration
ordinance, ,therefore, as a
"group" we cannot take an offi-
cial stand on this issue at this
time.
We do believe that all com-
munities should step back and
review their-current ordinances
and zoning laws to. determine
whether or not they are suffi-
cient, and if more aggressive
enforcement of al laws/ordi-
nances might resolve a majori-
ty of the immigration problems.
We are united in supporting
smaller government, lower
taxes and more personal
responsibility throughout our
community.

There's a picture of
Abraham Lincoln I remem-
ber seeing that showed a
-young Abe lying in front of a
fireplace, ciphering on a
shovel with a piece of
charred kindling. The point
was being illustrated graphi-
cally that, even if you were
poor, if you were persistent
in your studies, you could
grow up to be president of
the United States.

Apparently, there's been an
urban legend circulating on

years about the space race,
and pencils
l iiin :.Sopes.coiflbsinies5i/g

seems that in the earls years
of space exploration, zero
gravity kept pens from writ-
ing. The story goes that
Russian cosmonauts simply
used pencils to solve the
problem, while the
Americans spent beaucoup
money.(read wasteful' to
come up v.ith a pen that
would write in space. This is
one time where there is a lot
more to an untrue story than
meets the ele.
According to the Pencil
Pages Web site at in wnwpen
cilpages.coin. the graphite
used in pencils could actually
damage the sensitive instru-
ments used for the space mis-
sions and endanger the
breathing of the astronauts
themselves. It turned out that
pencils were not the solution
to the problem at all. In actu-

and 3) in hot temperatures of
plus 150 degrees C in sun-
light and also in the cold
shadows of space where the
temperatures drop to negative
120 degrees C."

Dr. Vernon Morris admires a rare stamp from part of his exhibit displayed at "Washington 2006' where he received a gold medal and ribbon.


Doctor turns hobby into




national gold medal exhibit

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
SSEBRING
D r. Vernon Morris, an orthopedic surgeon,
wanted a hobby at age 45 that would be a
diversion to medicine
Because history and geograph% were attractive
to him. he chose to be a stamp collector a phi-
latelisi.
1 "I knew what fun I'd had collecting stamps as a
kid but I had no disposable income. But now I
could do it well." Morris said.
That \% as 15 years ago.
His gold medal-winning stamp exhibit is enti-
tied "Fighting the Fed in Philadelphia: Carmer.
Local Post and Independent Mails. 1835-I167"
During that time there w.as an intense competition
from pnmate enterprise with the US Postal
Service. which caused a significant government
reduction'of postal rates and greatly improved. ,V
ser ice. This is usually referred to as 'diop letter"
mail and is a complex subject because changes in
legislation plus social and economic conditions '
affected them. His collection of these mid-19th'
century U.S. stamps is e\tremel\ specialized.
"It's the greatest stamp collection in the world
of this small area," Morrissaid..
The official stamp year begins and ends e\er'
August at "Stamp Show," often the largest sho,\ in
the \world. Morris won the grand award at
Philadelphia in 2002, Virginia Beach in 2003 and Karl Ro'e. Depult Chief of Staff at the 11hire House, ilefli pauses fora moment wit
Baltimore in 2005. Once a winner of a national Memorial Da. at the Ne" York Collector's Club meeting at the Army/Na., Club in
show, a person is not permitted to compete the stamps, and Ro'e gale a talk about his collection at the club luncheon.
other national shows that year. Those 30 winners
then face off at "Stamp Show" in the 'Chamnpion
of Champions." On an international le\el. each
country is restricted to a show once e\ers 0I ears.
Taking place for onls the 10th time- in United,
States history, this decade's international show,
entitled "Washington 2006" was at the D.C.
Convention Center. This was the largest philatelic
exhibition ever held in Amierica. Morris exhibit
was one of only 44 United States collections
allowed.
"This is like being-invited to Wimbledon to play
tennis. I'm in such good company. On. the same
floor there'san exhibit by the Queen of England
and one by the Prince of Monaco," Morris said.
This was the first time the Queen of England
had brought a portion of, the Royal Collection to
the United States.
This country's first stamp club was the New.
York Collector's Club. Because Morris is a mem- .
ber, while in Washington for the international
show, he attended a luncheon at the Army Navy
Club. Avid stamp collector Karl Rove, Deputy
Chief of Staff for the White House, was the speak- :7
er and presented a slide show of his patriotic
.envelopes from the Civil War period.
"I never knew he was into stamps and had such
a wonderful collection. It %%as a delight to have my
picture taken with him," Morris said.

Wilson ambles through 'You, Me and



Dupree' searching for purpose in life
According to the character .--- e A Want to go?
anda,, Dunree (Owen Wil. Son) '


everyone needs to release their
inner "-ness." For those of you
not hip to the suffix, the idea of
"-ness" goes far beyond. the i-
ching, yoga meditation or con-
templating your navel. It is the
dynamic philosophy encapsu-
lating the goofy schtick of the
irritating but lovable Mr.
Dupree.
The grinning Dupree ambles
through this lukewarm comedy
searching for his purpose and
settling on the self-help slogan
designed to help his best bud
patch up his marriage. Your
name "plus '-ness'" is the solu-
tion, and for Wilson, this is a
mantra that has suited his
pigeonholed career.
Wilson-ness has become as
recognizable as any fleeting
Hollywood-ness in recent mem-
ory, and the film latches onto
the theme with vigor. His slack-
er/hunk stereotype has finally,
played itself out and, having
lost momentum in "The
Wedding Crashers," come to a
screeching halt on an over-
turned 10-speed in "You, Me
and Dupree."
Shamelessly inviting com-
parisons to the aforementioned
wedding flick, the film opens
on a wedding in Maui, where
Carl Petersoh (Matt Dillon) and
his lovely fiancee Molly (Kate
Hudson) are about to tie the
knot. Dupree's entrance is a
ham-handed foreshadowing of
what's to come, as he exits a
crippled prop-plane on' the
wrong Hawaiian island to greet
the groom.


What: 'You, Me and Dupree'
When: 1:30, 4:15, 7 and 9:30 p.m.
Where: Lakeshore Cinema .8 in Lakeshore Mall, 901

As the party ensues, so does

ly literal trial by fire.
When the newlyweds con-
vene in the continental United
States for their happy life,
Dupree falls on hard times, the
generous 'couple take him in,
and we're off.
Wilson takes over-as "him-
self' for the first time in his
career. The character that has so
often played the foil to others
("Zoolander," "Starsky &
Hutch") is now front and center
and geared-up for two hours of
shenanigans. There are toilet
jokes, family-jewel jokes,
pornography jokes and stuffed
moose jokes. Dupree, of course.

couple within his aimless, irre-
sponsible lifestyle. Wilson

alter ego that we know so well,
but he's just not. continuously


funny enough for this film to
merit recommendation.
Like all fair-to-middling
screwball comedies, this one is
equal parts raucous and roman-
tic. The three characters get to
know one another and we get to
know Dupree, who settles on'a
career as a motivational speak-
er/author in the film's epilogue.
The ensemble works well
together, but one viewing is
more than enough.
There are movies you rush
out to see in the theater, movies
you wait for' on DVD and
movies you watch on Sunday
afternoons when they finally
make it to TBS. This one is the
latter.

Money can't buy some of the greatest gifts to man


George Horace Lorimer, who
for many years was the editor of
the Saturday Evening Post, in
Chattanooca. Tenn., wrote these
word-. "It is a good thing to
have money, and the things that -
money can buy, but it is good
too, to check up once in awhile
and make sure we haven't lost
the things that money can't
buy."
The things that money can't
buy would make a list that
would be beyond compare.
.Here are some things money
can't buy:
MoneN can't buy friend-
ship and companionship, it
must be earned. So often when
friendship is based on money,
when like money is, gone so is
the. friendship. The story found,
in Luke 15 is a good example of
this.
Mione\ ,can't buy a clear


conscience. No mat- -
ter how many things
we have the con-
science needs to be
clear. ,
Mone\ can't li
buy happiness. True
happiness comes '
through a -satisfied
mind. Paul had V,
learned that and said, VI
"What ever situation SPIn
I am in, I am con-,
tent." VlT
S..Money can't -
buy health. True Verlon
money can pay doc-. *
tor bills, etc., but it is
also true that rich folks also die.'
Reread Luke 16. Proper diet,
exercise and iving right are the
secret.
Mone\ can't buN beautiful
sunrises and sunsets. Only God
paints them w ith his o%\ n colors

LONG'S

and in his own ways.
Money can't buy
a beautiful forest with
its majestic trees. and
beautiful flowers.
Only God can grow a
mighty oak. Man may
plant the seed, water,
etc., but it is God who
causes growth to
occur.
Money can't buy
the beautiful streams
with their rippling
waves, or their
mighty torrents. God
formed them and set
bounds for them.


Money can't buy inward
peace. Money can't buy good
character. It is a result of godly
living, putting 'God first in our
lives.
Mone) can't buy the beau-
tiful majestic, mighty moun-


tains with their misty hue as
clouds overshadow their tops.
Money can't buy the beau-
tiful painted deserts with their
might and power.:
Money. can't bay the roar-
ing river or the rippling brook
or the mighty oceans. Only God
owns the water.
I hope you continue this list
for yourself. As you do, you
will agree that among the things
money can't buy are some of
the most valuable treasures in
life. Some of the most beautiful,
mighty, great, splendid things in
the entire universe.
Enjoy God's creation. It is
his handiwork.

Ministers of various ethnicities team up


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK Attendants
were motivated and inspired as
several speakers preached at the
Community Center Saturday
during a daylong conference.
Though a variety of more
than five nationalities were rep-
resented among the guests and
:speakers, the resounding mes-
sages fell in line with the
event's theme, "Walking in
Power and Authority."
The event, which was more
like a revival, was organized by


Hilton Outreach Prison
Ministries. It has been held
.annually for more than- 30
years, Lilly Hilton said.
"It was just wonderful," she
said. "We had a great turn out."
Each minister spoke with
their own style, all exuding pas-
sion for their faith in Christ.
.Evangelist Sylvia Lunsford,
of Avon Park, preached from'
the pulpit, "If you lost your joy
you need to get it back. God is
coming soon for people without
spot or wrinkle. He's coming
for something that resembles


'God has told me several times,

'I'm not pleased' But he's a

redeemer.'
SYLVIA LUNSFORD, evangelist


him," she said. "God has told
me several times, 'I'm not
pleased.' But he's a redeemer."
Hallelujahs and amens filled
the conference hall.:
"Allow God to take chlroie


over your life because the battle
isn't yours," she continued.
After her closing, Lunsford
stayed to enjoy sermons of
other ministers.
Evangelist Shalondia


Williams worked up an enthusi-
astic sweat as she moved about
the stage preaching. .
"You can't walk into a
church and be empowered," she
said emphatically. "The book of
Acts says, 'But after the Holy
Ghost has come upon you, you
shall receive power. Power to
lay hands on the sick -and they
shall recover, power to speak to
mountains that come up in your
life."
The audience' came alive,
many jumping out of their seats
affirming their, faith in her.
words. .
"You'll have power to speak
"pe.ice" in t, ie s-torii 'rm.'" she
shouted 'Onl) G.,di enmptuer,
ith pov,.er aind inomiing.
l;anin 1ie '.'. jillji, ii -LoIId ithl


power, but not with anointing
- authorized and delegated by
God. Self must die. God has no
room for self."
In closing, she told the
crowd, "If I don't leave any
other message with you, I want
you to be empowered with
God's authority."
Other speakers shared similar
messages, and those who
attended left with lifted spirits
.and renewed faith. -
A break for lunch, as well as
other breaks and plenty of
praise and .i6r-liip. gave those
in attendance opportunities to
mix. mingle, and move about.

ng Dixie Pre-Majors AII-Stars celebrate with their stale championship trophy early Thursday morning at Head Field in Aion


History Lesson
5 Years Ago
July20, 2001: Sebring
American, down 5-3 with' -
two outs, a full.count, a
man on third and one of its
better batters at the plate in
Tony Vazquez, had a
chance to close the gap or
tie-it, but Avon Park pittihe r
-Johnny Sedlock calmed-his-
nerves and ended the
game with a strikeout, win-
ning the District 8 Dixie
Youth championship and
sending the team to the
state tournament in
Lakeland. The Avon Park
defense committed only
one error to Sebring's
three, an errant throw try-
ing to catch Colt Williams
at third. When the throw
went into left field,
Williams scored easily to
make it 2-1 Avon Park.
Sedlock hit his first home
run ever to lead off the
game.,
15 Years Ago
July 21, 1991: Nathan
Coomes went 2-for-3 and
drove in the winning, run
while right-hander Andy,
Kesling tossed a brilliant
five-hit shutout over six
innings to help Sebring to
a 6-0 victory over Avon
Park in the championship
game of the AAA Dixie
Youth District.6 baseball
tournament at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
Sebring, which won the
county title, in 1990. earned
a berth in the state tourna-
ment held in Lake City.
Coomes' RBI single in the
top half of the fourth
* inning broke up a score-
less tie. Danny Lobozzo led
off the stanza with a single,
but was forced out at sec-
ond when Kesling hit into a
fielder's choice. Both
Kesling and Rolando
Armien came around to
score on Coomes' single,
and a throwing error at
third base to take a 2-0
lead. ..

Sebring 14s can't recover

from first-inning deficit
BySHAWN HINSKEY
News Sun crr.'s ideiti .
SEBRING East Lakeland jumped out to an
early 4`0 lead and never look back to take a 5-3 vic-
tory and eliminate Sebring on Wednesday.
Sebring starting pitcher Gus Williams would have
a tough first inning, allowing four runs on four hits.
, One of those hits was. a two-run single by East
Lakeland's Chris Stovall. Stovall would be the final
batter Williams would face because Sebring would
bring in Josh Chavis, who quickly got Sebring out
of a jam by striking out two batters in doing so to
end the first
Sebring got its first run of theevening in the third
on a stand-up doublleS 'by Michael Smith, who
knocked in Chavis for the score. Chavis would shut-
down East Lakeland's offense again with another,
pair of strikeout.
East Lakeland was finally be able to get their first
score off of Chavis in the fourth. After walking the
first batter and then striking out the next two, Chavis
would give up a. hard hit RBI single to Ben
Freeman. Chavis would proceed.to get the next bat-
ter to ground out to end the inning.
'Sebring attempted a comeback in the fifth. After
the leadoff batter was hit by a pitch, Chavis added
another single to his stats, followed by two consec-
utive RBI singles.from Smith and Dewey Sebring to
make the score 5-3.,
That would be all that either team could score, as
the rest of the game was a pitching battle in which
Chavis would strike out 10, walk three, and only
allow one run in a six-inning loosing battle.
