SFCC's Dual Enrollment Program


benefits high school students, parents


South Florida Community College, in
conjunction with the school districts in
Highlands, Hardee and DeSoto counties,
offers qualified high school students oppor-
tunities to earn high school and college'
credit simultaneously. Known as the dual
enrollment program, options include an
academic program of study, a technicalpro-
gram of study, or SFCC's Adult High
School.

Academic Dual
Enrollment Program
When Mark MacNeill was a student at
Avon Park High School, he knew he want-
ed to be a pharmacist. Realizing that he
would need college level algebra,
trigonometry and calculus to reach his goal,
he obtained approval from his guidance
counselor to take math courses through
SFCC's dual enrollment program starting in
his sophomore year.
MacNeill designed an educational pro-
gram that best suited his career goals. When
he graduated from high school, he applied
his college credits to an associate in arts
degree from SFCC and then transferred all
credits to.the University of Florida, from'
which he earned his doctorate in pharmacy
in 2006.
MacNeill is one of several hundred high
school students who have participated in
SFCC's dual enrollment program since its
inception in the mid-1990s. To qualify for
the program, students must have a 3.0 grade
point average, achieve passing scores on
one of three placement tests accepted by the
state of Florida, and be age 15-17.
It's not just students in public high
schools w ho can participate in the program.
Qualified students attending private high
schools also are eligible.
Lowell Baker, who attended Heartland
Christian School, enrolled in the dual
enrollment program and took enough col-
lege credits that he qualified for his associ-
ate in arts degree from SFCC atthe same:
time as he 'was awarded his high school,
diploma. .He transferred his credits to,
American Uninersits in Washington D.C.,
where he earned a bachelor's degree in
political science. Now in his third \ear of
law school at Florida State University.
Baker said he attributes his choice of stud-
ies and his career plan; to "the love of gov--
ernment which Dr. Robert Fitzgerald. (now
retired SFCC professor. Social Sciences),,
instilled in me, %wheh I was still in high
school."
Sti Guthrie. principal of Avon Park High
School and parent of three students who
were dual enrolled, likes to impress upon
parents the financial benefits of the pro-
gram. "All students receive free tuition, and
students in public high schools also get
textbooks for free. So even parents who are
struggling financially can enroll their stu-
dents in this program," Githrie said.
. Guthrie's son, Brian, who graduated
from high school in 2004, found his dual
enrollment courses challenging. "You had


'Meeting once a week rather than five times a

week at the high school and having outside

assignments gives students a more realistic

view of college life.'
BRUCE WYSE, South Florida Community College adjunct instructor


to pay close attention in class, read more,
and do homework every night. I acquired
good study habits as a result," Guthrie said.
Students take courses either at their high
schools or on one of the SFCC campuses.
Instructors are required to have graduate
level degrees, including at least 18 hours of
graduate level credit in the field they are
teaching.
Adjunct instructor Bruce Wyse teaches
college English to dual enrolled students
one night a week at SFCC's Lake Placid
Center. "Meeting once a week rather than
five times a week at the high school and
having outside' assignments gives students a
more realistic'view of college life." Wyse
said.
While Wyse ,has only high school stu-
dents in his course, dual enrolled students
who take courses on the Highlands campus
in Avon Park.attend classes alongside col-
lege students. "That pro% ides them with an
even more meaningful experience." said
Erik Christensen, chairman of the natural
sciences department, and former instructor
in the dual enrollment program at A\ on
Park High School.
High school students can even partici-
pate in SFCC's Honors classes. Dr.
Charlotte Pressler, Honors Program direc-
tor, has a high regard for these students.
"The3 are self-directed and intellectually
curious," she said.


Technical Dual
Enrollment Progranm
\\-hile many students apply dual enroll-
ment credits toward college degrees, other
students want to pursue more technical
careers in an occupation that requires spe-
cific skills, focused know% ledge, and hands-
on training. Students who prefer college
courses that prepare them for entry-level
employment and lead to vocational certifi-
cates can enroll in the technical dual enroll-
ment program.
To be .eligible. students must be 15-17
.ears old have a 2.0 grade point average,
achieve e passing scores on the Tests of Adult
Basic Education, and obtain approval from
their high school guidance counselors.


SFCC Adult High School
Dual Enrollment Program
Home-schooled students and those who
lea e the public school setting can partici-
pate in the, dual enrollment program


through SFCC's Adult High School
Qualified students take courses on the col.
lege's Highl hands campus.
To qualify for this program, students
must be at least 16 years old, have a 3.(
grade point average, and achieve passing
scores on the College Placement Test
Students wishing to transfer from home
schooling programs must be in compliance
with state of Florida home education
requirements.
Ashley Zandy.-opted for the SFCC Adul
High School dual enrollment program ir

One of her trends. who had attended higl
school with her. passed away. Zand3 did
not want to return to that school. because
she had too many painful memories. So sh<

"I really enjoyed the college setting. The
resources, like the computer labs and tht
library, were excellent. It %was also helpfu
to have access to the counselors to help
decide on a career." Zandy said.

Thor Log: Too much down time may catch up


Every week, the News-Sun
will reprint a log by Thor
Knutson, hiking the Pacific
Crest Trail from Mexico to
Canada. Readers can follow
maps and video of his progress
at ThorHike.com. He started in
April, and is now north of Lake
Tahoe, Calif.
Monday, July 17
Kept waking up during the
night. At one time I saw light
coming over the mountain and
thought it was time to get up. It
was the moon.
I was up at 5:30 a.m. and
walking by 6 a.m.
Met a man about 35 walking
south from Crater Lake. When
he started he weighed 350
pounds. He has lost 90.
Crossed Donor Pass today. A
lot of history here regarding the
wagon trains going west A lady
that lives in the area told me
that for years she has collected
things that were discarded by
wagon trains. She said so many
things were left behind that they
are still easy to find.
Just after leaving her, I hit a
big area of snow, slipped, and
planed down the mountain. Was
able to stop before ending up in
the mud at the bottom. Saw the
lady laughing.
I reached U.S. 40 early and
decided to hike the four miles
on to Interstate 80. Better
chance of, getting a ride into
Truckee for supplies.
I had trouble finding a motel.
Staying at, the Truckee Inn. I
think the town must have an
ordinance regarding signs.
McDonald's sign is only about
6 feet tall.
It seems I spend about as
much time hitching into town
for supplies as I do hiking. The\
Appalachian Trail was much
closer to the towns and easier to
get supplies.: Towns all seem to
be miles off the Pacific Crest
Trail.
Tuesday, July 18
Had. breakfast at McDonald's
and headed for the highway.
When I got to the off ramp there
.was a sign posted: "No
Hitchhiking." I waited a little
ihile. hoping someone wotd.
i fck me up before 'the.plice'&"
rived. No one-did. r
I called home to see if there
was a cab company in Truckee.
They picked me up and took me

back to the trail for $20. It was
noon by the time I was able to
start hiking.
I hiked 12 miles and reached
one of the two shelters on the
whole trail a two-story cabin
where six hikers were taking a
break. Red, Gary and Crazy
Horse were there. I camped on a
ridge with them.
When I got into my tent last
night, I found that I had lost my
flashlight: Very small and fits
on my head. I hope I can find
another one in Sierra City.

Crist, Davis maintain substantial leads MIGRANT


By BRENT KALLESTAD
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE A new
poll of likely voters shows
Attorney General Charlie Crist
leading Republican rival Tom
Gallagher by 23 percentage
points in their race for the
party's gubernatorial nomina-
tion with-voting for the fall pri-
mary now less. than four weeks
away.
In the Democratic contest for
governor, U.S. Rep. Jim Davis
of Tampa leads state Sen. Rod
Smith of Alachua 47 percent to


19 percent among 319 likely
voters. However, neither had
strong backing as 60 percent of
Davis' supporters and 70 per-
cent of Smith's said they might
change their minds.
"The candidates are still such
blank slates to so many voters
that anything could happen,"
Quinnipiac University Polling
Institute's Peter Brown said
Wednesday about the Demo-
cratic contest.
It was the first time Quinni-
piac narrowed its polling for the


primary contests to voters who
said they were likely to vote
between the state's early voting
start of Aug. 21 and the actual
primary date, Sept. 5.
Crist was favored by 55 per-
cent of 340 .likely Republican
voters compared to 32 percent
who said they preferred
Gallagher. Crist also led among
all registered Republicans, 47
percent to 29 percent.
"Things look great, but we
can't take anything for grant-
ed," Crist said Wednesday.


kATkR.- SiMMriONS'Nc .S.J,
Members of the A'on Park Citi Council listen closely Monda3 night as about 95 people filed to the cen-
ter of the Community Center to %oice their opinion on the proposed Illegal Immigralion Relief Act. The
ordinance failed by a vote of 3-2. 1 I",

this to be true."
"Contributes to Overcrowded
classrooms and failing
schools. Aas edited to read,
"contributes to overcrowding of
classrooms."
In place of "Subjects our hos-
pitals to fiscal hardship and
legal residents to substandard
qualitN of care." Macklin w rote.
.'sublers area hospitals-'.-and
local# health care provided. to-

our neighborhoods and dimin-
ishes our overall qualitN of
life," was replaced with "assists
in the- deterioration of residen-
tial neighborhoods and an over-
all decline in the quality of life,
in A% on Park."
Macklin didn't want to
remove the entire section
because he felt-it necessary to
include a reason for the ordi-
nance.
Other changes were made.by


both Macklin and Schuler to the
portion of the original ordi-
nance that had caused fe.ar and
concern .lamoiil1 business o n-
ers.
"I wanted to clear things up a,
little and eliminate some of the
vague wording that had caused
people in the business conui-Li '
nity to think they would have to
verify legal status to sell some-
one a Coke," Macklin said.
The revisions to this section
1xould let, business uoners
know that theN .were only1
required-to verif\ a prospective
elnplohee's'mployal e tai6s 6
"as defined by United States
Immigration. Law, the
Immigration and Naturalization
Act, or bythe Secretary of
Homeland Security."
"They know what that means
already because that's what
they're supposed to be abiding
by anyway," Macklin said.
Schuler and Macklin both
removed from this section,
"Aiding and abetting shall
include, but not be limited to,

the hiring or attempted hiring of
illegal aliens. renting or leasing
to ille al aliens."
Neither of the revised ordi-
nances significantly altered the
section of the original/ ordi-
nance dealing, With landlords.
Schuler's actually remained the
same, and Macklin's simply
changed the wording from
"Any person or entity that \ io-
lates this shall be subject to a
fine of not less than $ 1.000," to
the' more x ell-defined, "An\
person or. entity that 'Miolates
thi provisio i shall be subJect .q;-.
SW'ie iw',$)OO per da\. Each
%enfied illegal alien shall be
considered as a separate viola-
tion."
Although rumors are already
beginning to surface claiming
that Macklin is planning to push
this through again ne\t month,
he said he is not.
He does hope that something
\ill be done to deal w ith the
issues of illegal aliens in the
city, which he still -maintains
are serious issues.

Continued from 1A
by last year's hurricanes or
withered by a subsequent
drought. Either way, the debate
is illustrating how the congres-
sional stalemate over what to do
with the country's estimated 12
million illegal immigrants is
playing out beyond
Washington, with "no end in
sight.
"People are just terribly
scared," said Barbara Mainster,
head of the Redlands.Christian
Migrant Association, which
provides child care and educa-
tion for workers' children. "The
uncertainty of all this hubbub
over getting an immigration bill
and the antics out there have
made people more frightened
than I've ever seen them in the
33 years I've been doing this."
The labor buzz started earlier
this month, when a newspaper
reported fruit boxes harvested
and tallied were falling dramat-
ically short of projections.
Some. growers and industry
advocates said millions of
oranges could rot on the trees
because workers were afraid
and no one was around to pick
them.
'A day later,, Florida
Agriculture CommisSioner
Charles Bronson said the entire
$9 billion industry would suffer
if Washington lawmakers
couldn't reach a compromise.
Gov. Jeb Bush said it was
"interesting" amid so much talk
about the problems illegal
immigrants are causing in the
country.
For obvious reasons, it's dif-
ficult to ever determine how
many illegal immigrants and
migrant workers actually are
around. There's no census and.
unlike other industries, no regu-
lar projections of employment.
Most of the information comes
from people like Mainster who
help the workers...
She hasn't heard of any flee-
ing to escape immigration
arrests or seen any evidence,
there are fewer this year.


Neither have migrant worker
advocacy groups in Immokalee
and Dade City, two citrus-rich
areas in South Florida and on
the Gulf Coast, respectively.
"People are worried, but peo-
ple are here to work," said Julia
Perkins, a staffer with the
Coalition of Immokalee
Workers, adding that threats of
immigration raids is nothing
new. "I1 don't think that's keep-
ing people from the fields,
those kinds of fears. They
would have kept them from the
fields all the years before now."
Ben Norris, a citrus grower
with about 1,000 acres, doesn't
know, what's keeping workers
from fields, but his checkbook
insists something is. Norris said
he was fortunate to get his late-
season oranges picked, but it
cost a 50 percent premium in
some groves. Harvesting com-
panies told him there weren't
enough workers, and the ones
they did have wanted better
pay.
"You had to pay whatever it
took almost, because if this
crew left they didn't have
another one to put in the space.
It just boiled down to there
%wasn't as much labor to go
around," he said.
Steve Sorrells, whose
Sorrells Bros. Packing Co. Inc.
owns 5,000 acres and manages
another few thousand, said he
definitely had trouble finding
labor even though he's able
to use a legal guest worker pro-
gram. He did find all 328
employees needed, but it was
tougher this year.
However, as Sorrells notes,
labor is always short this time
of the season because migrant
workers have already moved on
to other jobs. It's not usually an
issue because most years there's
no work, but it matters this \ear
because the late-maturing crops
weren't ready to be picked until
now. ,
'"When you start getting into
June (migrant farmworkers)
have to start looking for a job,"
Sorrells said, adding that labor
was also tight earlier in the sea-,


son. "They follow the crops
up."
The other variable is just how
many oranges should be com-
ing in, because the crops that
may be left on trees are based
on estimates, not actual counts.
So if the U.S. government's
production estimates were high
and they have been so far,
resulting in several downward
revisions most of the fruit
some think is still on trees never
existed.
After two heavy hurricane
seasons, this year's crop is the
worst in more than a decade,
but the U.S. government put it
slightly better than last in final
estimates.
But this late in the season,
the Citrus Administrative
Committee has already stopped
keeping track of how much is
arriving. Based .on reasonable
estimates of picking and haul-
ing, by mid-month it could eas-
ily have been a quarter to half
of the up to 6 million boxes of
oranges feared to be wasted.
(The entire state's crop is
expected to be 151 million
boxes, each of which weighs 90
pounds).
The scores of workers will
keep shimmying up ladders and
slinging 80-pound shoulder
bags of fruit as long as the pro-
cessing plants will take them.
But even with the harvest
over, the immigration debate
will continue.
Juan Penajero, a 34-year-old
picker on a work visa from
Guanajuato, Mexico, just hopes
it will eventually open doors
instead of raising fences.
"I think the situation with
immigrants ,trying to stay here
is no longer a political issue or
a legal issue; it's a human issue
for hard working people given
the permission to live a better
life for them and for their fami-
ly," he said.
"As humans, we deserve
that. Everyone wants that."

Clifford the Big Red Dog sniffs out fun


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Medical care
has gone to the dogs.
. Actually, Clifford the Big
Red Dog went to Florida
Hospital Heartland Division on
Wednesday to visit children and
promote. the hos pitil's upcom-
ing Back to SchoQl Fair.
"Woof!" Clifford said, when
asked how his visit was going.
Communicating with
Clifford \<-as challenging if one
didn't speak "-dog." Despite his
love of books, he doesn't speak
English, or Spanish for that
matter.
"You know, Clifford's big
thing is all about reading,"
Florida Hospital wellness coor-
dinator Sara Rosenbaum said.


Rosenbaum served as
Clifford's seeing-eye human
and was mostly successful in
preventing the red-furred, bi-
ped canine from bumping into
door jams, elevators and peo-
ple.
Clifford bear hugged
Highlands County commission-
er Barbara Stewart after a brief
discussion about dog house
prices and impact fees when
their paths crossed on his way
into the fitness center's day care
room where four youngsters
played while their moms exer-
cised.
"Ruff, ruff," he said, talking
to twins Allison and Joseph
Franza, 5, Jaydee Grice, 6, and
John BaR ron. 5.
The children %%ere star-struck


when the television and bed-
time book superstar made his
surprise appearance.
"Cool!" Joseph said, after
receiving a goodie bag from
one of Clifford's aids (like most
Hollywood types, Clifford was
escorted by a large entourage
of attractive assistants and
annoying paparazzi).
The bags were filled with
folders, loose-leaf paper, pens
and pencils, said Cilth\
Albriat.,ni, Florida Hosplial's
director of communications and
marketing.
The same bags will be given
to school-aged children at 2
p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6, at the hos-
pital's mall during the Back to
School Fair.

.hours old and her older siblings_
Katelan, 8, and Tony Jr. 6.'
"I like it," Tony said of
Clifford's show, as he hugged

room. Clifford danced his \\'a


to the pediatric floor.
"Look, he does the soft,

correcting herself. "Excuse me.
I meant the soft paw."
Albritton said that on
Tue'sd;\. the children's ward
had about 30 patients. All but
one w'ere released by Clifford's
t visit Wednesday. And, at 10
years old, he felt he was "too
,old" to have his picture taken
,with the PBS star.
"What's up dawg?" Mark
Schuffert. pediatric nurse man-
ageir, asked Clifford, throwing
him a high five.

Editor' note: A Florida it si-
Sdent was recently stung over
100 liies bd' ihese A.frican bets.:
Depiu' J.P. Fan sbinnitted thi
follow ing in place' ot liis i'eeilar
Highway Hotline counmn.
The Flonda Department of-
Agriculture and Consumer
Services is the regulatorN
agency responsible for protect-
ing the beekeeping or apiary
industry. With the pollination
that managed European honeN
bee colonies provide, one-{hird
of the food we eat in Florida,
would disappear.
WithoutT properly managed
honey bee colonies, agricultural
production ity would suffer. But
there would be another serious
outcome Africanized bees
could easily move into areas
without managed colonies.
Though the Africanized bee is,
established in Florida, through
education, trapping programs
and the .help of managed
European honey bee colonies,
we can attempt to keep
Africanized bee populations
low. We can learn to live with
them, as we have learned to Ii\ e
with other' dangerous stinging
insects such as the imported fire
ant, yellow jackets and others.
Africanized bee history
Africanized honey bees were
brought to Brazil in the 1950s
for testing as possible alterna-
tives to the gentle' European
honey bee because of their rep-
utation of being hardy in tropi-
cal environments. Some were
accidentally released and then
spread throughout South and
Central America and Mexico.
S, Soon after, they migrated to
the southwest U.S. Africanized
bees most likely entered Florida
on cargo ships or shipments
from Central and South
America.

Protection-detection
Apiary inspection plays a
vital role in Florida Agriculture
as FDACS inspectors work to
prevent the introduction and
establishment of honey bee
pests and diseases. The depart-
ment has the most comprehen-
sive state program (e.g., num-
ber of inspectors and traps) to
prevent the further accidental
introduction of unwanted
Africanized bees. FDACS

along with other stakeholders
formed the Africanized Honey
-Bee Task Force to educate first
responders and other targeted
group., on AHB emergencies.
The, Honey Bee Technical
Council. established by Florida
Statute. has developed stan-
dards for requeening colonies
and 'reconmrended bees man-
agement practices., ,
Industry's efforts
To discourage Africanized
bees from nesting, beekeepers
are: .
Placing managed hives 'in.
public parks. and on prit ate
lands if Africanized bees
come into an area to forage and
don't find adequate food
because of managed colonies in
the area. they \ ll move on.
Requeening their colonies
with EHB .queens this
ensures hives do not become
infiltrated with AHB queens.
Creating a safe environment:
N1 Teach children to.use cau-
tion and respect all bees and
other insects.
Teach children to notify a
teacher or adult if they find a
nest or swarm.
Eliminate potential nesting
sites.
Check walls and caves of
structures.
Close off wall, chimney
and plumbing-related gaps that
are more than 1/8-inch large.
Cover rain spouts, vents,
etc. with 1/8-inch hardware
cloth.
Watch for regular entrance
and exit routes used by swarms
during spring, summer and-fall.'
Avoid an attack:
Prepare a safety plan for
your home and work place.
Meet with neighbors to
increase community awareness
and preparedness.
Obtain bee sting kits (over-
the-counter or prescription).
Remain alert for bees.
Look for bees in work areas
before using power equipment;
Walk away and stay away
if you see a swarm or nest.
Run away in a straight
line, cover your face and eyes
and hidein a car or house if a
bee or swarm begins to chase
you.

SHEILA SAYS

Sheila E. Ryan


I remember the exact
moment I fell in love with
Florida. Love at first sight
works with places as well as
people. Standing in my friend's
driveway I looked up at the
dark sky and saw a million
bright, white stars. So clear I
thought I could gather them for
a bouquet. This was nothing
like the smog-filled sky of the
city I'd grown up in.
I suddenly felt I had found
something I'd been looking for.
but didn't know the name 'of.
By the time I reached my home
up north a feNw days later, my
plans were made, and it wasn't
long before I took up residence
in Sebring. The transition was-
n't as easy as I thought it would
be, but I've never been sorry
about my decision.
In the last few years I'Be
begun to take an interest in the
politics and history of Florida.
and T suppose you could say the
honeymoon is over. the rose
tinted glasses hae slipped a lit-
tle and although my lo\e and
devotion are still in place. I'm
more interested in the basics
than I was before. I did some
research at the library and on
the' Web, and became more
intmgued than eter. I'd like to
share %with you a little of what I
disco% ered.
For instance. Florida became
the 27ih state of this great
nation a long time aeo. on
March 3. 1845. You're probably
aware that Tallahassee is the
State Capitol. but did \ou know
,Florida's current population is
16 million and increasing rapid-
ly?
Take notice Ot the increase in
trucks carrying building con-
struction supplies; It's a deid
*giveaway. Of the 67' counties

est. It must be pret-
ty small, because
I'm unable to find it
on my map. Of course I bought
that particular map when I first
arrived in 1988, anid have been
-patching it with tape ever since.
Union must be under one of the
many ripped creases.
Florida boasts no mountain
ranges and is basically a flat
Peninsula, which makes some
bicyclists hesitate to do much
riding here since there .is a
shortage of hills to coast down.
Walton Count) boasts the high-
est point in the state, which is
only 345 feet. That's hot much
of a coast at all.
Jeb Bush is the go% ernor, and
he's also President George
Bush's kid brother. Can that be
considered nepotism?
The Seminole Indian Tribe
did not come into existence as a
political entity in Florida until
1957, and is comprised of the
many tribes that inhabited most
of the southeast portion of the
United States as far ,back as
12.000 years ago. Most of these
tribes are represented in the
casinos that dot the landscape
from Miami to the panhandle.
Back in the 1800's the bene-'

several enterprising business-
men to relocate from the north.

homage to the Suwannee River,
which meanders in a southwest-
erly route across the state on its
way to the Gulf of Mexico.
The state reptile is the alliga-
tor, which was also on the
endangered species list for a
while but has made a remark-
able comeback. Stories about
these reptiles nibbling away at
the human population are some-
times front page news. Listen
closely; the alligator cannot be
domesticated, and should not be
fed delicious marshmallows or
other tidbits from people's
-hands. The tiny brained, mighty
jawed alligator doesn't know
he's not supposed to bite the
hand that feeds him.
SI almost forgot, about the
Florida state flag, which dis-
plays two diagonal red bars on a
white field. The state seal in the
center features a Native
American Seminole woman
scattering flowers, a steamboat,
a cabbage palmetto tree, a bril-
liant sun, and represents the'
state as being the land of sun-
shine, flowers, palm trees,
rivers and lakes, which it defi-
nitely is.
Florida is the most popular
state for retirees, of which hap-
pily I am one. There is so much
more to discover about the his-
tory and growth of this. great
state that Nou may hear from me
again on the subject. but at least
for no\, you and I both know a
little more about Florida than
we did before.

Taxpayers

deserve answers
Editor:
Have you enjoyed the beau-
tificatioi along the streets and'
highways in Lake Placid? Or
have you been too busy trying
to dodge the potholes and'
washouts in the streets?
It is a disgrace to spend so
much money on sod, trees and
shrubbery and also for the irri-
gation required, when we have
streets in such terrible condi-
tions. It's like having a mani-
cure and pedicure and leaving
the arms and legs broken.
It shows very poor manage-
ment of taxpayers' money. Isn't
it time for our county commis-
sioners and town councilmen to
let the taxpayers know that our
interests and safety are more
important than just looking
pretty?
Of course we can look at-the
flowers and palm trees while
- we wait for a tow truck to lift
our car out of the holes.
Also, many of us want to
know about the work the coun-
ty has done for the Florida
Outdoor Drama Theatre?
Should taxpayer money have
been spent to build their nice
paved driveway? Or all of the
other work done there?
County men and equipment
were there for several weeks'
doing grade work, clearing
scrub and piling sand. It has
since grown up in weeds.
Money wasted? Has the county


taken on the project for some
reason? Has there been an audit
of any kind to let the public
know %%here their donations
have been used?
.That group is also always
asking for donations, but there
has been nothing done on the
property except the work the,
county did months ago. They

keep advertising to sell more
seats. Well folks,' there are no
seats there to add on to.
Why should the county even
consider giving that group
$250,000? Is Highlands
County supplementing the
retirement incomes for those
few people involved in that
project? Every year we get the
same song and dance about the
theatre "opening next year."
Always waiting for a grant!
Why should they expect a
grant?
With all that has been donat-
ed, the public has expected to
see something positive happen-
ing on that property. How many
people are on the payroll?
Highlaiids County does not
need to be involved in a private
enterprise. Keep the $250,000
to use/,for all of the people.
Road repairs should come first.
Think about it.

Lanier Merritt.-' :
I'm sure it comes as no sur-
prise that orange juice is the
official state beverage. During
World War II concentrate
became very popular, but
frozen juice is now a multi-bil-

aroma is the state flower.
The majestic sabal palm is

Florida and several other
states have adopted the mock-

these beauties gather outside,
my front door to serenade me
with their lilting song.
The Florida panther was des-

blame this on the fact that hous-

One person

made decision
Editor:
This is what 361,000 men
have died for, .so we can hold
protest marches, burn the flag
and whatever. All it took was
one person-who had the decid-
- ing vote, that we. no longer
needd to speak English and to
have;illegals to live here.
SIam not opposed to immi-,
grants, just make therm legal
and speak English. : .
John and Betty Lou Nagy
Avon Park

I.City needs to fix

7Iblighted areas.
Editor:
I just saw a letter in the.
Highlands Today about some
place in Avon Park that had 14
or 15 people living with one
bathroom and a bunch of junk
cars. If this situation exists, the
city of Avon Park can correct
this. even a health certificate


doesn t authorize this.


In the past I ha\e had the
opportunity to talk to the health
department and just because
they issue a camp permit, it
doesn't mean the camp can
legally operate in the city. If the
zoning is %wrong the cit\ can
shut them down.

If. I remember right, the
paperwork from the health
department says. that it is the
homeowner's responsibility -to
ensure .they are in the proper.
zoning area. But hopefully
since the mayor -has brought
- this to, the state's attention
again, I feel a change will be
made that the permit cannot be
issued unless zoning allows it.
But, I want to re-emphasize


that the landlord ordinance
should cover issues like this.
But, the city must enforce it.
I don't remember if the city
is planning on hiring a city
planner or not, but for a city our
size, a city planner is probably
not required. What we need is.
somebody to ensure these
housing and rental issues are
handled; I would support that
before I would support a city
planner, or add those duties to
that person. :. ,.:

Summary: We really need to
fix the housing issue: the immi-
gration issue will probably
involve issuing work permits.
which will solve the legal issue.
The ke\ is to fix our blighted
areas. '-

While I was delivering food
a couple of years ago. I went
through some terrible areas in
our citN and it included all eth-
nicities, not just one. People are
right, it was hke being in a third
world country\ in that area, but
this wasn't restricted to one
race. MNl wife was with me and


I told her I %\as so shocked and
appalled; I believe I even men-
tioned it to city hall.
I think we all need to take
another look around the citr to
see all areas. I know I'm going
to look again.
Again. I'm not sure of what
is ultimately planned in the city
budget, but we have a city
manager, city clerk againn.

ager 01 think). code enforce-
ment and they want to hire a
citl planner, plus the other staff
to run the city. You can't tell me
that the city can't have one. of
those city hall ..positions to
ensure that. our rental housing
gets handled properlN: our city
isn't that big yet.

Three ignored

their duties
Editor:
It is to be fervently hoped
that the legal citizens of Avon
Park who voted the existing
- city council into office for:the
purpose of representing them
and protecting their interesLts
will not forget the three who
ignored that obligation and
instead allied themselves with
those who are here illegally and
the businesses that profit from
this invasion.
These three have obviously
forgotten that English is .
already the official language of
'our country. and that there are
presently federal laws- in exis-
tence mandating criminal
penalties for these employing
these illegal aliens, although
this administration, at the
behest of the business interests
that it is beholden to, refuses to
require cofnpliance with these
laws.
Since our government will
not enforce the very laws that
they have decreed, it becomes
incumbent on the citizens to do
so. .Mayor ITom) Macklin and
councilman iDoug) Eason
should be congratulated for
attempting to uphold the law of
the la%\ and represent those
w\ho place them in office and
should be re-elected, along
with three new members who
will remember what country
they are citizens of.

No one really

read ordinance

Editor:
I am a resident of the city of
Avon Park, a first-generation
American, the daughter, of 'a


Salvadoran legal immigrant
and bilingual. I was astounded
by many of the comments at
Monday night's ordinance
hearing.
Pro or con, it's always advis-
able to read and understand the
information beforehand. At
times I wondered if some of
these -speakers had ever even
glanced at the actual ordinance.
Nowhere in it did it state that
we, who speak Spanish, would
no longer be able to do so. It
stated that the city's official
language would be English,.
much the same way that,
English has 'been the official
language of -our state, since,
- 1988.
And it cannot be said that
this has made Florida in any
way exclusionary to non-
Anglophones. Twenty-one
other states have also made
English their official language,
as have cities throughout the
nation. One city, El Cenizo,
Texas, actually made Spanish
its official language and con-
ducts its lown's business as
such.
It's really a disservice that
this language issue was so terri-
bly and shamelessly convolut-
ed.
As to the employment issue.
illegal immigrants' presence is
a financial plus for their
employers, who get to pocket
more in profits by paying less
to illegal immigrants than what
the\ would have to pay legal
residents. "But no legal resi-
dent will do the work," you
say?
Then how about doing what
other industries are doing in the
same situation: increase wages
to attract employees and keep
the "'ork force legal. And if you
don't like the fact that you have
to increase wages so much,
remind yourself that this is part
of being a business owner.

Almost a

My first trip to Florida
was when I was 9 and I
remember it very well. Two
places stayed in my heart
from that trip: St. Augustine
and Bok Tower (www.ci.st-
augustine.fl.us and
http://boksanctuary.org).
I Being a history lover,
Castillo de San Marcos was
a doorway to another age of
pirates and ghosts. In a
recent visit to St. Augustine,
I discovered there are nearly
20 companies operating
ghost tours within the "Old
City" (www.aghostlyexperi
ence.com/tours.html).
With music being such an
integral part of my life, Bok
Tower's carillon was a
majestic experience for me
as well. The setting w within
the acres of gardens provid-
ed a gentle oasis from the
scurry of crammining vacationn
Into a limited timeframe.
Speaking of music, till the
years I've played instru-
ments, "Di\ie" has always
been a part of my repertoire.
In fact, the staff at the
Hammock Inn at Highlands
Hammock State Park love to
hear me play it, because it's
the second song in ni\ clos-
ing medley. Although we
love our guests, the staff
does return earl\ in the
mornmin on Saturdays. so
"Dimie" is a snimbolic alarm
clock. Even some of our
regular customers recognize
when it's time to go home

SEBRING--In 1970. J Antablian* went to Amsterdam for a
S two-week actiono. He finally returned in 1995.
Born and raised in Ne%% York Cit. Antablan attended tme Art
':: Department of Rochester Institute of Technolog., then the prest-
gious Ne%\ York Studio School, a private art school funded b\
\Vhitne Museum and Museumnof Modern Art. "It was a unique
and wonderful experience For eight hours a da\. seen da\s a
week, we painted and %were critinqued All the professors were
painters who'd all been Pri\ de Rome winners," Antablian said.
At that time his work was not onl\ shown in exhibits but also
sold to pri-iate collectors in New York.
His overseas journey took him to West Africa, England,
Australia, and Asia. where he %%as an illustrator for advertising
agencies for 25 \ears. Dunng that time his specialty %as air"
brush painting. Before returning to the states, he spent a year in
halN learning the technique of fau\ art.
Recently\ he completed a mural of a person's prized car in the
garage. "I enjoy the process. Although it w\as hard work, it was
satisfy ing when done. I always learn something new on each
painting and prefer %working large scale," he said.
Now Antablian is leaning toward fine art oil portraits.. whether
of a person, or a pet. He is especially fond of painting horses. He
is a perceptual artist w which means a direct experience ith nature
as opposed to conceptual artists w ho tri to capture the imagina-
tion for instance, as seen with op art, neon lights, or video art.
"I'preter to paint like the great masters and the realistic painters
in a 'er\ detailed manner." Antablian said

Reading specialist writes children's book
By SUE AN CARPNTE


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
"' . ,,, ,. ,t.. ,m' t tdo
SE BRING Cynthia Dwyer is about
to give birth to "Four-eyed Philip."
It's her most recent book about bully-
ing and how it can bruise a child's heart.
"I moved to Highlands County for the
climate It's not too large, it's affordable,
and .' itlt easy access to either coast. Plus
my parents lived here seasonally for 20
years and are now permanent residents,"
Dwyer said. After retirement as a read-'
ing specialist at Indiana University and a
middle school principal at Kokomo,
Ind., her dream for retirement was to
wind down and have more time to write
her series of children's books. ,
However, she has to rise early to cre-
ate that time, because she's now
employed with the Highlands County
School Board. She travels and serves the
district from sixth to 12th grade as a
building-based reading coach. She
teaches reading and English and lan-
guage arts at a secondary level for teach-


Dwyer's tips to encourage children to read
According to the U.S. Department of Education. there are 23 million people who
can't read a help-wanted advertisement or this article.
In today's world. \ou have to be able to read to get an education. The more a child
reads, the easier it is. Here are some tips:
Visit the library. There's a fun-filled summer reading program for all ages.
Read aloud to Nour child every day. If traveling. encourage your child to read
the signs along the high ay.
Relate w watching TV to reading. Many programs and TV movies fie in with good
books. Encourage \our child to read about their favorite TV celebrities.
At the dinner table, read something out loud to your family: A news story, a
Bible ',erse, a poem, humor, history or anything. Each night let a different person
read a selection. Imagine the %wide range of subjects you'll cover in 365 days.


ers of grades fifth through 12th. In addi-
tion she is adjunct faculty at South
Florida Community .College teaching
basic-skills reading to freshmen.
Her first children's book was "Can
You See Me Now?" In it a grandparent's
birthday gift of a camera is the catalyst
for the relationship between young sib-
lings. The book helps children arrive at a
new understanding of their feelings of


others. It is published by Thumbprint
Press.
To encourage children and parents of
Highlands County to read, Dwyer is
offering a special get-acquainted dis-
count not only for "Can You See Me
Now?" but also for "Four-Eyed Philip"
- which will come out before
Christmas. Call 314-0078 or go to

DIVERSIONS



'Lady In'
There is a classic creative
writing exercise where every
member of the class is given
three minutes to begin a story
on a piece of notebook paper.
The- only limits are the bound-
aries of each student's imagina-.
tion. It can be an account of a
dream, a retelling of actual
memories or a complete fiction
conjured from the writer's sub -
conscious. After three 'minutes
of writing, the author passes the
paper to his or her, right where
the-next student continues the
story knowing nothing of the
original scribe's intentions.
This goes on in three minute
intervals until the paper makes
it's way around the room and
the stories are read aloud. The
class typically falls about the
place in hysterics as the tangen-
tial, patch-work stories take
bizarre turns through different
realities and moods. It's sort of
a fantasy "Mad-Libs" told
through a collective stream-of-
consciousness.
M. Night Shyamalan's
newest twist-o-rama "Lady In
the Water" is reminiscent of this
assignment in many ways. It's
the story of a pale and mysteri-
ous water-nymph named Story
(Bryce Dallas Howard) who
comes to visit a stuttering and,
withdrawn ,property manager
named Cleveland (Paul
Giamatti) at an apartment com-
plex called "The Cove." As
Cleveland tries to unravel the
mystery of "The Lady. In the
Water," several'of the apartment
tenants weave their way into a
confusing narrative stew full of
Asian bedtime stories, cross-
word puzzles and burned-out
stoners. The script is bogged-
down with awkward humor,
overlapped w ith a lullaby-sym-

1 M miserable

3 M -=Marginal
4 M = Magnificent
5 M = Masterpiece

'Lady In The Water',
gets




phonic score and ultimately
crippled by such kooky and
haphazard connections that the
film : becomes frustrating
instead of entertaining. Unlike
the creative writing assignment,
the audience is not in onthe
joke and, therefore, bored.
Cleeland takes in Story after,
she materializes at the side of
the pool one evening. After
slipping on the concrete, he
tumbles into the water uncon-
scious and is saved by the-
angelic )oung woman. Owing
her his life, he is compelled to
help her return to her home-
world Standing in their way is


'a dembnic wolf made of sod
known as a "scrunt." The
"NeverEnding Story"-like crea-
ture stalks the complex waiting
for an opportunity to attack the
"narf" (this is'what we aree all-
ing Story's species) and- her
guardian, Cleveland. The silly
names are just one aspect of the
film that render the whole thing
incongruous. Seriously, how are
we supposed to avoid snicker-
ing at words like "scrunt" and
"narf?"
Story tells Cleveland she has
been'sent to encounter someone
in the apartment building who
is writer, and while he asks the
tenants who this person might
be, a Korean girl named Young-
Soon (Cindy Cheung) starts in
on the' ridiculous fairy-siory
that ties the movie together.;
This is where the film really
runs amok. As the main charac-
ters are sent on a scavenger
hunt to gather inconsequential
side characters for a desultory
ceremony, one gets the feeling
that the bedtime story is being
'made up as we go along, and
not in an Avant-garde, refresh-
ing way. Shyamalan seems to
repeatedly write himself into
corners where the best way out
-is. for Young-Soon to simply'
disclose another branch of non-


sensical poppycock and shoo
away Cleveland again.
What ensues is a lot of wait-
ing around, a lot of hissing over
the weakened Story and a string
of trial-and-error sorcery with
cereal boxes and Bob Dylan
songs (I swear I am not making
this stuff up).
Saving the film from the
dreaded "miserable" rating for
me is one solitary moment of
good acting from Paul
Giamatti. There is a touching,
teary scene at the end where
those who don't already know
what a brilliant actor he is can
catch a glimpse.
As for Shyamalan, who had
rebounded so nicely from
"Signs" with "The Village,"
"Lady In the Water" is a marked
step back.

Baptism from a different perspective


One of my favorite stories in,
all the Bible is the famous
"Walls' ,of Jericho" narrative
f_ found in Joshu.t Chapter 6. It
records how the city of Jericho
was shut up securely against'the
Israelites and how God' over-
came thJt fortress in a most
unusual way. God did' not
instruct, Joshua to build siege
towers or dig tunnels or do any-
thing el e that might have been
considered-as a common mili-
tary tactic of the time. Instead.
he simply commanded that the
Israelites march around the city
once a day for six days. Then'
on the se enth day he toldthemn
they were to march around the
city seven times, blow trumpets.
and shout. He-didn't tell them
what would follow, but had
already promised idshtia that he
had "given Jericho into your
hand." When the Israelites did
what the Lord had instructed.
the walls of the ct11 fell and the.
Israelites conquered it.
\\hati in the world does any


of the above have to
do with' baptism?
Nothing directly of
coarse, but indirectly
a great deal, for it
tells us how faith and
obedience bring to us
gifts that .we have no:
power to acquire our-
selves. If we ask the
question "Who made,
the walls of- Jericho
fall?" the answer'
should be obvious.
Clearly it wasn't the.
Israelites. The sound
of the trumpets or the
vibrations, of their


feet did nothing to weaken the
walls. Only the almighty power
of the Sovereign God smashed
those walls.
Yet, in another sense, the
Israelites did knock those walls
down. Not by their o"wn power
but by their belief. I imagine
that in the week the) marched
'around those walls they
received a great deal of taunting


by the people in' the
7 t city. "What are those
fools up to?" must
l F have; -been' asked
numerous times by
S the defenders. Yet the
Israelites steadfastly
believed, and that
belief blossomed into
VERL N'S obedience to a simple
VERLON'S if somewhat strange
SPIRITUAL instruction.
In our day, there is'
VITAMIN much confusion over
,.----- ; the act of baptism.
Verlon Carrell Some want to terA it
:. -----. a "work" and are
quick to point out


that we aren't saved by works
so therefore we aren't saved by
baptism. from Ephesians 2: 8-
10). Often these folks so dimin-
ish baptism that it isn't prac-
ticed at all by some believers. I
believe such folks are mistaken.
I agree that baptism doesn't
save us in any meritorious
sense. But there are clear bless-
ings attached to this act, from


Acts 2: ..38, Acts 22: 16,
Galatians 3: 26-27, that leads
me to believe we ignore or
diminish it at our peril. Even
Jesuqs includes it in the com-
mand to proclaim the gospel to
all nations, from Matthew 28:
,19. By submitting to bapusm as
believers we aren't trying to
merit God's grace at all but
simply expressing our faith in
God's grace so powerfully
demonstrated on the cross. Just
like the Israelites claimed
something they could never
earn by marching around those
walls, we too claim something
we can never earn by being
symbolically plunged into our
Savior's death, burial, and res-
urrection through the Divine act
of baptism.

History Lesson,
5 Years Ago
July 27,.2001: Avon Park
let a six-run lead evaporate
in the Dixie Youth'AAA
state tournament in.
Sebring and fell to Bartow,
which would advance to
the World Series .in
Bedford, Va. Avon Park,
collecting only three hits
and none after the third
inning, appeared to have
Bartow down for the count
after exploding for six
unanswered runs through
the first three innings.
'Avon Park appeared poised
to force a winner-take-all
playoff heading into the
fourth with a 6-2 lead, but.
four walks, one base hit
and two Avon Park errors
on wackyplays at third .. .
base ended the team's
dream.

Jr. retained his Florida title,
but El Gran Apollo was the
big winner in the profes-
sional wrestling match held
at Sebring High School.
Funk pinned Apollo in the
next-to-last match of the
evening to retain the title,
but Apollo came back in
the next match to pin 15
other wrestlers in a 16-
man, over-the-top-rope
battle royal to grab the
$5,000 purse. In the tag-
team match of the night, it
was The Assassins (also
known as The Masked
Samurai) who retained
their North American Tag
Team Championship title
despite losing to Sweet
Brown Sugar and Charlie
Cook. Since the loss was a
disqualification, the.title did
not change hands, much to
the chagrin of the fans
present.

Sebring

Second 12-2 loss to
Panhandle power
ends state title dream
News-Sun
EAST LAKELAND It
was eerily familiar.
Sebring, American, which
got knocked into the losers'
bracket of the Dixie Youth
Majors (ages 11-12) state tour-
nament by virtue of a 12-2 loss
to Bonifay on Sunday, got
knocked out of the tournament
by the same team and by the
* same score on Thursday in the
bracket finals.
Sebring was no match for
P Bonifay starter Kodi Russ, who
was one out away. from a no-
hitter when Buddy Mays sin-
gled to.left in the fifth inning.'
Corbin Hoffner then garnered
Sebring a measure of respect
with a tw\o-run homer to right
field to at least break up the
shutout.
Russ,, who struck out eight,
kept. Sebring from getting
through the batting order,
which in Dixie Youth includes
all- 13 players the first time
around, until the fifth inning.
"We faced the best that every
team's had. but tonight w a. just
one of those nights." Sebring
coach Daniel Ware said. "What
;made them decide to.put thbat,.,ai

less game in the third with four

error. Back-to-back RBI sin-
Sges from Ty and Kodi Russ

an error.
Ware was proud of the way
his team went down swinging.
"We told the boys this is
probably your last time up, so
swing for` the fences; make

He was also proud of the
support the team got from the
fans who made the trip to

SEBRING Early'Tuesday evening,
nearing the eve of the summer's biggest.
tournament, the Sebring Dixie Pre-
Majors All-Stars made it obvious how
much focus was being used on their trip
to the 2006 World Series.
"Hey, set up the field!" left fielder
Kyle Long barked out to his teammates
just before practice began at Firemen's
Field.
"You set it up," shouted Tony Vazquez
while playing 'flips','- the baseball ver-
sion of hacky-sack,- With four other
players.
,"Shut up and do some rehab," Long
fired back at Vazquez, who has been hob-
bled by an ankle injury for over a week.
And so is the essence of the Sebring
Dixie Pre-Majors clubhouse, a team for
the quick-witted and the reserved, the


young and the experienced, the brash and
the methodical, but never the easily
insulted.
Almost every player on the squad of
15- and 16-year-old headed to the World
Series in Thomasville, Ala., today has
played with or against the next for years
and never is their comfort level more
apparent than during warm-ups.
Girlfriends are easy targets for quick
jabs, as are injuries and batting slumps.
Memories are also criteria for abuse,
including those from the 2004 Dixie
Boys World Series when many of the
players on this year's roster were part of
the Sebring 14-year old team that furi-
ously ran to the state championship only
to be hammered in the World Series with
consecutive mercy-rule losses:
"It was a shell-shock," said catcher
Mike Jones. "South Carolina came out,
didn't talk any (junk) and played their


game and won and we need to do that."
"I think we were all just a little bit
nervous about it," admitted Long.
If nothing else, the losses gave those
individuals a new-found respect for the
talent in the other 10 states in the field.
"I think we're going in with a little
better of an attitude," Jones said. "I think
we went in last time a little cocky and we
know how it is now."
The losses also provided the team with
an important lesson of keeping things in
perspective.
Despite being just days away from
Dixie Baseball's biggest stage, practices
are casual and uneventful with nowhere
near the urgency or anticipation that the
team displayed before their trip to the
World Series in '04.
By now, they know better.

Tour de France

Failed drug test taints Landis' victory


Associated Press
LONDON Tainted at the
start, the Tour de France; may
Save been tainted at the finish,
too. ,
:, Floyd Landis' Tour de France'
victory was thrown into ques-
; tion Thursday when his team
said he tested positive for high
testosterone levels during stage
17, when the 30-year-old'
American champion began his
stunning comeback with a grit-
'ty charge into the Alps.
The Phonak team suspended
Landis, pending results of the
backup "B" sample of his drug
test. If Landis is found guilty of
doping, he could be stripped of
theTour title and fired from the
team.
Arlene Landis said her son
called Thursday from Europe
and told her he had not done
anything wrong.
"He said, 'There's no way,'"
,she said in an interview with
The Associated Press at her
-home in Farmersville, Pa. "I
S-really believe him."

Second-place finisher Oscar
Pereiro, who would become
champion if Landis is not
cleared, said he was in no mood
to celebrate.
"Should I win the Tour now it
would feel like an academic
victory," Pereiro said.
The Swiss-based Phonak
team said it was notified by-the
International Cycling Union
(UCI) on Wednesday that
Landis' sample showed "an
unusual level of
testosterone/epitestosterone"
when he was tested after stage


17 of the race last Thursday.
"The team management and
the rider were both totally sur-
prised of this ph.siological
result," the Phonak statement
said.
The 30-year-old Landis made
a remarkable comeback in that
Alpine stage, racing far ahead
of the field for a solo win that
moved him from 11th to third
overall.
Despite a degenerate hip-
condition iha[li ill require sur-
gery, he regained the leader's
yellow jersey two days later.

Continued from ID
being named to the News-
Sun's 2006 All-County team as
the Blue Streaks' closer with
five saves despite throwing just-
12 innings.
And Krause is finding the
same popularity in Wauchula
as the ace of Steve Rewis'
(Hoppy's son) staff at Hardee
Senior High School.
Throughout the previous high
school season, Sebring knew
just how talented Krause was
even before he joined the team
in the summer after he beat the
Blue Streaks twice.
"He's a really good pitcher,"
Ritter raved of Krause. "He's
pinpoint and his motion is the
same every time. He killed us
every time we played him."
Krause was added to the
team by chance by simply
being available after the sum-
mer ball program in WauchlIla
was dropped this year
"It's just kind of the way -
things worked out," admitted
Hoppy Rewis. 'There were
three or four other kids who
could've played for us and .
contributed but (Krause) was
available every time we needed
him and earned his way on."
Fortner, however, is learning
to start from scratch, transfer-
ring to Highlands County from
Sickles High School in Tampa.
A job opening and simple
dumb luck was the main reason
for the move. His father had
grown up in Sebring but
moved away to work in Tampa.
But after he began to grow
weary of. the fast-paced Tampa
lifestyle, a job was offered and
accepted, allowing Fortner,
Sickles' top pitching prospect
from the junior varsity pro-
gram, to jump right on the
summer squad before the state
tournament.
And while it's true that
Ritter has become the anchor

TRIP
Continued from 1D
"It's more relaxed this
year," admitted Jones. "Of
course, you're always going to
be nervous, but we just know
what we have to do now."
"It was fun and exciting and'
all going last time, but we
don't care about that stuff
now," said pitcher Cory Ritter.
"This year we're going to
win."
Even head coach Hoppy
Rewis agrees.
"I don't want us to get stuck.
on winning a state champi-
onship." he said. "I mean, as
far as I'm concerned we just
won the tournament and now
we're going somewhere else."
True to form, many of the
players share the samesenti-
ments of not over-hyping their
upcoming trip to Alabama.
"Hey, we should roll up
there in little baby Hummers '
that say 'Sebring' on the side,"
one player joked in the dugout:
to the delight of his team-
mates.
"Or just make cardboard
-ones and wear them on ouf'
sides like a. parade." .
No master hov exactly the
team will arrive to the ballpark
today for the opening cere-
monies, il is certain that it will:
be comfortable and modest.
After all, how a team enters
the World Series as this
Sebring team has learned,-
can go a large way in'deter-
mining how it leaves it.
