County shuts the door on



occupational license taxes


By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County
businesses, will get a cumulative
$120,000 tax break next year with
the repeal of the Occupational,
License Ordinance.
Governor Jeb Bush, in June,
signed House Bill 1269, which
changed the name of the "local
occupational license tax" to "local
business tax."


Highlands Cou nt Administrator
Carl Cool, at the July 11 county
commissioners' meeting, said some
business people mistook the occu-
pational license (as it was common-
ly called) as a license in a particular
field, such as construction.
But, the occupational license was
really just a tax and the state and the
counties regulated various trades by.
granting licenses to those who
passed a comprehensive test.


This confusion lead to the state's
cliangi2ng the wording from n'licens-
ing" to "tax."
The county staff recommended
that the commissioners repeal the,
ordinance rather than rename it;
which it did at Tuesday's regularly
scheduled meeting.
Notices, that were due to be sent'
in August, reminding businesses to
rener. their occupational licenses,,
will not be sent this year.

So, if a homeowner pulls a permit for roof work'or

all workers and sub-contractors are properly'licensed.

homeowner is responsible if the insurance or workers'

SEBRING, FLORIDA
VOLUME 25/NUMBER 10


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING If the state-
ments used in, a recent
Highlands County impact fee
presentation were any indica-
tion, the Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce was one
of several endorsers of the pro-
posed ordinance.
But, that's not the case cham-
ber executive director Dan
Andrews said Friday.
"They stated the Greater
Sebring Chamber of Commerce
endorsed the impact fees,"


Andrews said. "We recognize
the need for additional funding
to support future growth, but we
did not say we endorse the
impact fees as they're written."
On July 11, Andrews
released the chamber's position
on impact fees on behalf of its
board.
In his cover letter, Andrews
commended county administra-
tor Carl Cool and the commis-
sioners for their "time and
efforts over the past three
years" in trying to find a viable
solution to growth.


But, when that quote was
pulled from the cover letter and-
included on the slide "Impact
Fee Endorsements" under the
heading, "Sebring Chamber.
Supports Impact Fees," mem-
bers of the" chamber took
offense.
"We take offense that they
took the liberty to take half a
sentence out of our statement
and presented it on a slide," he
said. "Don't go chopping it up
and ,using bits and pieces of it.
We think that's unprofessional."
In the position report, the


board made four recommenda-
tions:
1. Impact fees should be
introduced in multi-year phases
and in a manner that does not
deter short-term or long-term
economic development;
2.Impact fees should balance
the needs of the county with
their affordability to commer-
cial and residential developers;
3. All appropriate, fair and
feasible credits and exemptions
should be considered and
implemented in an equitable
manner that reduces excessive


burden on residential and com-
mercial property owners; and
4. Impact fees contemplated
for commercial development
should be minimized to such an
extent that future projects are
not threatened and that all man-
ner of amortizing the. payment
of these fees should be explored
and allowed as authorized by
law.
But, in the slide presentation,
those points were summarized
in bullets that took out the meat

Members of dance clubs from Tampa, Orlando and New Smyrna joined local dancers to kick up their heels at the Kenilworth Lodge in
Sebring over the weekend for the eighth annual Avon Park Beach Boppers Club's Summer Splash and Boogie.



Dancers bop till they drop


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County rocked this weekend as
the Avon Park Beach Boppers
Club bopped, shagged and
twisted the- time away at its
eighth' annual Summer Splash
and Boogie weekend.
The fact that the local c Ib Li
made up of two people at this
point, John Grill and Janice
Adams, doesn't matter in the
least.
The Avon Park Beach
SBoppers are part of a loose net-
work of dance clubs throughout
the Southeast that hold dance
parties celebrating shag, bop
and swing, or just 'about any
kind of dancing.
That is why their motto is "A
Cirele of Frnend "
And it's why there was no,
trouble in filling the dance
floor.
S"We don't 'care what people
dance with us, as long as they
dance," Joyce Lucas said. She
joined the Splash and Boogie
party from Tampa where she is
active in the Tampa- Bay
Boppers.
There are at least eight bop-
per clubs in Florida.
Some clubs in larger cities
hold weekly events, and have
dancing instruction available
for participants.
Avon Park's holds two par-
ties a year, the last weekend in
July and the last weekend in
March.


Roger Weiss and Jan Lang (left) came down from Orlando to dance. The bop and the shag are both
called 'slot dances' because dancer only move on a straight line. When dancing bop, the dancers move
from side to side. or eastto west; when dancing shag the dancers move back and forth, or north and
south.

The federal government
plays a critical role in-reducing
the cancer burden on this coun-

passed legislation that cut the
budget of the National Institutes
of Health for the first time in 35
years and reduced funding for
cancer research for the first
time in a decade. Ambassadors
will work to restore and
increase federal funding, for
lifesaving cancer research and
programs at the National

National Cancer Institute, and
the Centers for Disease Control

Thor Log: Huffing and puffing through California's heat wave


Every week, the News-Sun

No TV, no phone, no air, but
satin sheets. Spent the night
chasing my pillow from slip-

Arrived so late last night I
didn't get any shopping or laun-
dry done. It was afternoon
before I got on the trail. Passed
about 20 people just off the
trail. They all had exactly the
same tents and chairs, camped
on little flat sites that looked
like some sort of campground.
Red stopped to say "hello,"
,but they only put up their hands.
Found out later that they were
on a "silent quest."

My package had not arrived

restaurant and laundry facili-

They picked me up and took me

Camped alone.

Did a 12-hour day today,
6:30 to 6:30, with 80 percent of
the day in the trees and the rest
in lava flat areas.
I was thankful for the trees.
The temperature was in the high
90s.
I took about one and a half
hours for lunch near a spring -
a pipe coming out of the moun-

Hiked 13 miles after lunch to
the next water source: A small
creek about a half mile off the
trail.
I had seen several deer dur-

feet from my camp were having
a fight. It lasted for some time.
They just kept running around

Red, Gary and three new hikers

store just to keep cool.
On the way back to the motel
I crossed a culvert and saw two-
heads peeking out: Raccoons in
the water. I guess they were just
trying to keep cool, too.
I only have one pair of pants
and it 'is difficult to do laundry.
What to wear while washing
them is the problem. Red called
and offered to do .mine with
hers and Gary's. Problem
solved. A big towel will work as
long as I stay in the room.


Brown was found guilty in
1997 for failing to secure a
building permit.
The brothers were given until
the end of June to appeal the
board's decision and mid-July
to pay their respective $500
fines.
The Browns did neither and
registered mail sent to them was
returned unclaimed.
Selke points out that there are
others, guilty of similar offens-
es,. and over time they are even-
tually run out of the county.
The key to avoiding being
taken.advantage of by-a dishon-
est contractor is to, ask for refer-
ences and to. see credentials.
Fr.Lnk Surer. who's been in
the construictin business 'in
Highlands County for 30 years'
said it's not worth risking cost-
ly liability and shoddy work-
Smanship to save $200 dollars
from an unlicensed contractor,
"Years ago, I could bring in a
paper bag with my plans and
get a permit," Sutersaid. "Now,
it takes a stack of papers."
Despite the volumes of
paperwork. Suter said the
process protects the home
owner and is worth it. .

Christopher Tuffley,


Trading stress

for calm
This, week presented a new
challenge working with a
board certified hypnotist.
Clearly I wouldn't be able to
hypnotize anyone myself,
which meant someone would
have to.hypnotize me.
I wasn't quite sure how I
felt about that.
On the one hand, there was
a strong sense of curiosity and
a hope that hypnosis v. would be
useful in gaining control of
sell-defeating habits.
On the other hand, there
was an embarrassment to
admitting an interest in h\ p-
notism in the first place. and a
fear of the loss of control.
And \\ ho knew hov. able
the h pnotist would be'
In an\ case. because it's ni\
job. I prepared to "go under"
when Jon Spiegel. a board

-Hypnotist



Addressing the subconscious mind


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Hypnosis.
The word brings up images of ticking clocks and
swinging pendulums.
Of men with piercing eyes and Vandyke beards,
speaking in German accents.
Or of people tricked into some kind of public torn
foolery, such as checking like a chicken.
The truth about hypnosis, Jon Spiegel said, is sim-
pler and without mystery.
Spiegel has been practicing hypnosis for eight
years. He is certified by the National Guild of
lHypnolsis. .
"Many people think hypnosis is a form of
mind control that it means surrender-
ing to a hypnotist, he said
"Some people think hypnotism
brin2.s on a zombie like state-of-
mind, that \ou don't remember
anirhin\. But that's not so
Basicall\ all hypnosis is self-
h\ pnosis. As in other things.
hutimans do it better \\ ith
practice..
Spiegel explained that


the mind has three levels: The unconscious mind
where there is no thought at all for example, like
after being hit in the head; the conscious mind we
think with; and the subconscious mind.
Spiegel said the subconscious mind records all.
thoughts and emotions from the moment we are born
until the moment we drop. It's something like a file
cabinet, he said, empty in the beginning, and over-
flowing at the end.
But when we are young we often misunderstand the
facts that led to a filed emotion.
That means. Spiegel said, as adults, we often replay
a childish tape filled with bad information, leading to
-useless, even self-destructive, actions, over and over
again.
Hypnosis, Spiegel said, is a way of getting
into that file cabinet and putting int updated.
more appropriate information. rI.
nib -The hipni tist t cai a li"O. butl irOnl\ iti
'-'he subject's co peraiion. I mplnt post-
hi- pnotic 'si2ge_ Ltionh to help ran iiidi-
-.. \idual break had .li.hils
Bad habits are eas\ to pick tup
Spiegel said it onl lakes doinm
a habit.


So the post-hypnotic suggestions are designed to,
promote alternative behaviors. In addition, the hypno-
tist can implant triggers to encourage change.
For example, say someone wants to quit smoking.
A hypnotist, by relaxing that individual into-a recep-
tive state and addressing his subconscious mind, can
implant the idea that the sight of the color red, or the
sound of clinking glasses, will send a wave of well
being throughout his body.
In other words, when the individual stops at a red
light, the sight of that light will remind the individual.
to feel good about not smoking.
Hypnotism has been useful in recalling lost memo-
ries as well, Spiegel said. And it is used by some ath-
letes to improve their performance.
Spiegel started out in a hospitality career, working
in re-staur.nits and night clubs. After a while he got
tired of the late hours and looked for a new career
path In college. \\here he studied business, Spiegel
hd been hN pnotized during j stae sho\\. The experi-
ence had lascinated hirri. and % hen he looked for a
chansne, becomn,- a hi pnoiisi seemed the natural
choice
Spiegel has an office ajt he Spiegel Chiropractic
Clinic. 121 N. Frankln St. He can be reached at 385-
518 I. Cal for an appointment.


KAT\ R.-. Si'ir.tl,-*',S/News-Sun
,Ion Spiegel, a board certified hypnotist,
demonstrates eler thing a hypnosis is not.
In fact, Spiegel says. almost everyone
spends lime in an hypnolic like stateevery-
day. For example, e'er gel out of lour car
and find you can't remember the rile?
You were in a semi-h3 pnotic state. ,

SUE ANN CARPENTER/News-Sun
Alex Olson, of Central Pawn in Lake Placid, shows some of their power tools for sale.




Customers cash in




at CentralPawn


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondenit
LAKE PLACID-If you need cash quickly,
Andy Olson can help. He and his wife Alex
recently opened Central Pawn.
"We're like a bank for people that don't have
great credit, work history, or need approval with-
in the hour," Olson said. When someone enters a
transaction with him,-his license requires that he
gets a thumbprint, signature and driver's license
identification. He also notes the serial number on
the product to be pawned so the police depart-
ment can check that it's not stolen.
Pawned products are held 30 days. If not
reclaimed, they then move into the front show-
room to be sold. People coming here to buy
expect to buy name brand products for half price.
Besides anything to do with a car, like radios,
tires. etc he has scuba gear, jewelry, a motorcy-
cle, exercise eqtipmefit, DVD's, guns; mi sical
instruments, fishing gear. lain mothers, air com-
pressors, clocks, roller blades, video games,
Christmas decorations, cash registers, paintings,


STRESS-
Continued from 11A
voice, and used brief touches
of his fingertips to my col-
league's forehead and arm to
reinforce specific points.
My co-worker, who deserves
credit for volunteering without
notice, said he wasn't able to
entirely relax, especially know-
ing we were all starring at him.
I was luckier several days
later; when I went for a follow-
up visit to Spiegel, and had
him hypnotize me in the calm
of a darkened, mostly quiet
room.
A white noise machine was
turned on, and soft, electronic
music played in the back-
ground until we began, at.
which point it was turned off.
Spiegel sat me down in a
comfortable, encompassing,
softly padded, rocking chair. It
was almost like sitting in a pil-
low with arms.
My arms were supported on
the arms of the chair, my feet
were flat on the floor.
He began by asking me to
relax just exactly as he had
my colleague. We focused on
one limb at a time. First one
arm then the other, finally the
entire body. In stages, with my


power tools, amplifiers, goblets, and even bullet
proof vests.
"It changes weekly. I buy and sell every day.
It's an outlet for people who don't want to be.
'bothered with a yard sale. If people have some-
thing they aren't using, it's a great way to make
space in the house. I normally check Ebha and
can give about 25 percent of the value of the.
item," Olson said. Licensed and regulated by the
state, he charges interest if the person returns to
redeem the item within 30 days.
Olson was a manager with DeWalt power tools
in Chicago for 22 years while his wife had always.
been a stay-at-home mom with their three kids.
When the DeWalt plant closed; they decided to.
move to Lake Placid to be near his retired par-
ents.
"Since Alex said she wanted to work, this is
great for us to be together and share," Olson said.
Central Pawn is at 714 U.S. 27 South (next to
Royal Palms Bowling Center). Hours are from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For
details, call 699-9006.


eyes lightly closed, I began to
sink into deep relaxation.
It wasn't so much that I
couldn't raise my arms when I
was asked to do so, it was
more like I had no interest in
raising them. I felt at peace.
Slowly I stopped thinking
and focused more closely. I
found myself thinking, over
and over, like mantra, "Give it
up, give. it up." The outside
world faded away and I began
to notice my breathing.
Throughout the experience I
was alert and clearly heard
Spiegel's voice.
Spiegel's goal was to get me
'to focus on positive affirma-
tions and changes. I was told to
image a favorite scene, either
one from real life or made up. I
was to focus on the imagery
and make note of how I felt.
Concentrating on my scene I
said I felt at peace and happy.
Go back in time, Spiegel
said, go back to a moment
when you felt the same way.
I immediately thought of a
time when I was 5 years old,
wearing German lederhosen
and a Roy Rogers six-shooter.
We paused as Spiegel had
me focus on the positive feel-
ings, then back again he want-
ed me to go.
And to my surprise, what.


floated to my mind power-
fully, like I was holding up a
snapshot and could see it a
vision of my parents out shop-
ping, my father holding me, an
infant in his arms.
-What did I feel? Spiegel
wanted to know. I'm snug and
happy, I replied.
Spiegel kept reinforcing the'
good feeling.
Then came a challenge.
Keep in mind, I'm sitting in
a half dark room, quite limp,
with my eyes closed.
Think about a stressful situa-
tion, Spiegel said, using his
voice to create a rising tension.
The stress is getting greater, he
said, it's bad, it's worse, it's
awful.
By this time I was breathing
heavily, almost panting. Part of
me was safely watching, anoth-
er part of me was sweating
bullets, as if the stressful,
moment I was thinking about
was real.
Then, just when I didn't
think I could bare another sec-
ond, Spiegel turned the tables.
Sharply tapping my forehead
with his fingers as he told me
to picture my peaceful scene,
he banished the stressful event,
wiping the mind, so to speak,
with the positive image.
When I feel that kind of


stress in the future, he said, I
will think of the calming image
and that will steady me.
Then he directed me to: touch
my thumb and pointer finger
together. When I do that now,
he. said, that earlier, wave of
good feeling will flow through
me and I \% ill f6el stronger and
calmer.
' Amazingly, several days
after the single session, I'm
finding relief. Hypnotism has-
n't stopped the urge. for exam-
ple, to smoke which still
comes after seven months
without a cigarette but it
seems to have made it easier
for me to get past the urge.
Definitely I have a more posi-
tive outlook in general, and
when I touch my thumb to my
pointer finger I do feel a wave
of positive, calming emotion.
But Spiegel made it clear
hypnotism isn't magic. It won't
cure a bad habit in one session.
It is simply a tool, useful for an
individual who really wants to
change.

rience at a barber shop. For

adjunct instructors have worked
as principals or assistant princi-
pals. Twice a year, in the fall
and spring, students will com-
plete a 15-hour internship dur-
ing which they will observe a
teacher who is compatible with
the subject matter and grade
level they wish to teach,
EPI students will be able to
log onto the college's Desire-2-
Learn computer network. They
will have access to the
Microsoft PowerPoint presenta-
tions, Internet sites used in their
classes, discussion boards with
fellow students, and e-mail. In
some cases, students will
receive instruction and file
homework assignments online.
Graduates of the EPI pro-
gram will receive their, teaching
certificates from the Florida
Department of Education once
they ,pass the Florida Teacher's
Certification Exam.
To be accepted'into the EPI,
students must obtain a status of
eligibility letter from, the
Florida Department ,of
Education and apply at the


SFCC Registrar's Office.
Afterwards, they will receive an
application for the EPI from
Rafatti.
Tuition for EPI classes is
roughly equivalent to the cred-
it-hour classes, offered in the
associate degree programs.
Like college students in other
programs, EPI participants will
be eligible for some types of
financial aid, including Pell
Grants. Military veterans can
also apply for a Troops to
Teachers scholarship through
the U.S. Department of
Defense.
So far, approximately 40
people have shown an interest
in attending the EPI, Rafatti
said. Some are middle-aged
people looking to change
careers and, a few are retiring
military, but the majority are
recent college graduates who
are now thinking seriously
about teaching.
For more information, call
Rafatti at 784-7403 or send e-
mail to rafatlic@southflorida.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

Crowded, crushed;
but peaceful
I don't like being in large
crowds of people with. the
pressure of bodies closing
in. Perhaps it's the memory
of congested subway. sta-
tions and being packed as
tight as sardines in the
trains. But, even in a cele-
bratory crowd, I'd rather
stay on the fringes then be
pressed into the center of
activity.
I recall a visit to a theme
park some years ago on the
Fourth of July. A happier
gathering would have been
hard to find. When it came
time to leave, everyone con-
verged on the exit. We
couldn't even see our feet.
Our noses were inches from
the backs of those in front
of us. We couldn't move
left.or right. Once in our
car, we breathed a sigh of
relief only to be hemmed
in on every side by all the
exiting vehicles.
I dofi'i think I'm particu-
larly claustrophobic because
I'll still participate: like rid-
ing an ele\ ator even though
I'd rather take the stairs.
But, being part of the multi-
tudes is only one way to
experience crow ding and
crushing.
We can feel similar emo-
tions financially pressed,
squeezed and overwhelmed
with how we'll manage. Or
perhaps stifling circum-
stances are closing in
around us and pulverizing
our confidence.
This is a good time to
look at another cro" d that
pressed and crushed on
every side. The story is
found in the Bible in Mark
5: 25-34. It tells of a ...
woman \hlio had suffered ,
w\ith hemorrhaging for 12
years. Many doctors hijd
tried to help her but she
went from bad to worse.
One day when a crowd
crushed in to see Jesus, this
woman thought to herself
that if she could just touch
the edge of his robe, she
would be healed. And, so,
she made her way into the
center of the crowd until
she could stretch forth a fin-
ger to touch his hem.
Immediately\. Jesus felt
healing poter energized,
and leading him and he
asked who had touched
him. Taking in the scene,
the disciples couldn't
believe the question. Others
may have been touching
him, but this dear woman
touched him in faith and
that elicited an immediate
response.
When the woman admit-
ted she had touched him,
she fell trembling at his
feet. Jesus responded,
"Daughter, you took a risk
of faith, and now you're
healed and whole. Live
well, live blessed! Be
healed of your plague,"
from Verse 34, The
Message.
In the midst of such a
pressing crowd, Jesus was
peacefully able to respond
to a woman of faith. Two
lessons emerge. One, to step
out of our crushing circum-
stances with that kind of
faith; two, to allow the Lord
to equip us with peace that
spills over the circum-
stances of life.
Then victory is ours.
Selah.

'Son shine. Women

with Issues' birthed
By JAN MEROP

SEBRING It's amazing how some-,
thing ne\w and meaningful can be birthed
in a person's soul when the\ are doing
an ordinary task.
Pastor Barbara Robinson, of Avon
Park's. Christian Community Outreach
Ministry was talking a typing test at
South Flonda Community College when
heir nind took a side journeN.
"I was typing away when the Lord.
began ministering to me,-' taking me
back to mir childhood and right up until
now. He showed me how he had deliv-
ered me. But,, he also made clear that
some issues were suppressed issues I
hadn't realized were still, there."
Robinson said.
At that point. Robinson said the Lord
prompted her that she had to deal %%ithl
those issues. He gate her a \ vision to help
other hurting %women %who are going
through the same or w orse.
A song came to mind about how 'the
sun will shine after a while. And %when
;he got home she got busy writing a pro-
gram and proposals to. request funding
through foundations in order to move
ahead with a ministry to hurting women.
"Sonshine. Women with Issues" is the
res lt of that vision. It meets from 6-8
p.m. Sunday at the' New Testament
Church and Mission in downtown
Sebring.
"I got busy handing out flyers and,
sending, out invitations from my exten-
sive data base developed from working
in the community with women, children
and families for approximately eight
years," she said.
The first meeting had seven women
and she expects that to double and mul-,
tiply in the weeks to come.
"One woman came along as a guest
and asked for three invitations to give to
other women she knows. God is putting
a stirring the spirit of these women,"
Robinson said.

Issues and strategies
Some of the issues facing women
today are how to set boundaries, how to
deal' with co-dependency, anger manage-
ment, etc. But, the underlying causes of
these behaviors are many such as, rejec-
tion by. society, broken relationships,
molestation, rape, abuse and substance
abuse.
"Women must deal with their own
particular issues that hinder them from
going forward. I want to. help them do
that, through biblical principals and the
power of the Holy Spirit," Robinson
said.
She cites a verse of Scripture found in
Psalm 107: 20, NKJV, which says, "He
sent His word and healed them, and
delivered them from their destructions"
And another found in Malachi,4: 2,
"But to you who fear My name, the Sun
of Righteousness shall arise with healing
in His wings; and you shall go out and

grow fat like stall-fed calves."
Based on these biblical principles, she
is busy writing curriculum, preparing
power point presentations and develop-
ing the program from the ground up.
.She is an ordained minister and has
extensive experience working with the
homeless, ;\ omen in jail, families in
need and all types of situations which
lea'e many hopeless and on the fringes
of society.
She has been gifted with the ability to,
discern when people are hurung, even
when they may be in a professional role
and able to wear a mask. And, though
she may notbe able to confront their par-
ticular problems at the time, she can be
an intercessor and pray for them.
Besides these credentials, her own
background helps her identify with each
woman and speak of the deliverance she
has received.
"If these women can understand that
Jesus Christ is their deliverer and hand
every issue over to him; they, too, can be
set free. Prayer, praise and the power of
God are our weapons and will bring
healing," Robinson said.
One of the best strategiesl,to nurture
healing is when women open up and talk
about the issues that are at the core of
keeping them captive.


"'As the\ do this, a new freedom
comes to them and eventually the\. too.
want to reach out to help others in heed.
"For example, one woman still
grieves the loss of her son and has had a
problem forgiving God for taking him.
Then recentfh she also lost another fam-
ily member. She's ready to join this pro-
gram and experience deliverance She
was so happy to receive my call and has
expressed an interest to.help with other
arms of the ministry."
Robinson said that when women share
and open up, they become a part of the
outreach to others. As the women join
hands with her, they'll be able to do
things together.

Taking healing to next level
There are many other faith-based out-
reach programs in the community that
can help provide the next level of train-
ing or counseling.
"We want to become one voice for
these people. They will need employ-
ment and training," she said.
Robinson wants to bring hope back
into shattered lives. There are lots of
resources for women. Some will need
counseling: Those with low self-esteem
will need assertive training. Using other
faith-based 'ministries will help

Robinson mo\e these ladies to the next
le\el.
Ministry can be extremely draining
requiring tough lo\e at times. But, by
accessing other existing ministries, the
load is shared and more help and train-
ing is made available.
She also sees the da\ w hen the\ may
be able to go to the legislature w ith cer-
tain \women's issues to get things done
that % ill better lines and communities.
"God told me that I would be the
mother of crack addicts and the dow n
trodden and that he would supply and
pro\ ide the means." Robinson said.
She cites that man\ of the problems
that hurting womenand their fairulies
face come from the fact that men are
absent. Thus, another ministry to the
men "Pulling a Brother Out" is being
birthed as an arm of "Sonshine. Women
with Issues."
"Our men aren't in their rightful place
in the home. community. and %workforce:;
thus. putting the women tnder much
stress," Robinson said.
Consequently, 'women are. carrying
the, whole load trying to be the
provider and caregiver to their children
- trying to fill the roles of mother and
father,
"That stress trickles into the work-
force. The pressure'and stress is taking
its toll on women's health,",she said.
Her ministry also extends, to the jail
\\ ith %women trying to put them on the
right road before they are released.

Community cooperation
'She is extremely) grateful for the sup-
port and help of Mike and Pat Karl and
their willingneIs to open the New
Testament Church and Mission. on
Sunday evenings for "Sonshine. Women
with Issues."
"The time is right," Robinson said,
"and I am so excited about this outreach
to help women deal with their issues.
This is a community thing. It's. beyond
me.".
Christian Community Outreach
Ministry Inc. is tax-exempt and wel-
comes donations.
"We are also in need of a building to
provide better services for the many
needy families," Robinson said.
"Sonshine, Women with Issues" wel-
comes all women in the .community.
Questions can be directed to Robinson at
873-6778 6r Mike Karl at 385-0035.


Pastor sets sights on getting men on right track


New.ts-Sun
SEBRING Pastor Barbara Robinson, of Avon Park's
Christian Commumnty Outreach Ministry. is getting some
help with a new program, "Pulling a Brother Out."
In essence, her desire is to pull men off the street comers,
give them the training and help they need so that they can
take care of their wives and children with good jobs and pay.
In addition, she's getting some men who are willing to
reach out to the males in jail to nurture life-changing faith
and attitudes before they come out. Then she wants to con-
nect them with the help they need to mainstream into socie-
ty as ex-offenders who want to live fruitful lives.


"We have pulled in 17 men from the streets already and
are offering them the opportunity to get training and employ-
ment through Workforce (Heartland Career Connection
System). We want our men off the street. We want to see the
cycle broken so that they won't live like that anymore."
Separate classes for men and led by men who are ex-sub-
stance abusers and spirit-filled ex-offeriders are already in
the works. Men who would like to be part of this healing
minister) are invited to call the 24-hour prayer and counsel-
ing line at 873-6778 or write to Christian Community
Outreach Ministry Inc.. P.O. Box 46. Avon Park, FL 33826-
0046.


Phot b., IJNMEROPN, .-Sun
Women with issues are finding a solace and help in receiving the 'Son' shine of God's love through praise, worship, prayer and the ministry of Pastor Barbara Robinson as she
helps them deal with those issues from which the, need deliverance.

Practice good cell phone etiquette while in public


* News-Sun correspondent
Pauline Au Yang provides eti-
quette tips for readers on the
last Sunday of each month in
the Lifestyle section.

The proliferation of cell
phone use within our. society
and the lack of cell phone cour-
tesy displayed by users has
revealed in a survey that 80 per-
cent of Americans think that
cell phone users are disrespect-
ful, disruptive and thoughtless
to those around them.
This insensitivity is evident
in every aspect of society.
Doctors, nurses, teachers,
lawyers, real estate profession-
als, religious leaders, politicians
and our youth. No one is
exempt.
During the altar at a recent
religious event. A minister went
out to respond to a cell phone
call. Important to note that God
would have contacted him in
the spirit. The call he answered
was from another being.


Etiquette dictates that cell
phones must be surrendered
whether it's in glove compart-
ment or in a pocket book. That
device should never be on your
person during church services.
The wife of another minister
had been abroad and on her
return she called her husband,
the minister during the sermon.
Would you believe it, he
stopped the sermon and pro-
ceeded to talk to his wife.
Returning to his sermon he
explained that. she wanted to
know, about something in the
closet. Churches do have board
members, deacons, secretaries
and special assistants who can
be placed on notice to respond
to emergency calls.
It's unacceptable and disre-
spectful to be text messaging,
checking messages or playing
games while in church. What
happened to the Bible and the
hymnal? Remember to surren-
der your cell phones before
services begin.

don't want to be deported,
because this has been happen-
ing. We are losing our harvest.
Which means that orange juice
prices will increase. These
politicians and their rules you
don't see any of their children
harvesting the crop."
One Nextel user was over-
heard saying, "Yo! what you
doing? Nothing. You pick up
the kids yet'... on you way don't
forget to stop by the pharmacy
to pick the prescription and the
card."
The conversation continued
beyond ear shot.

While a woman was on her
cell phone, she proceeded to
loudly .discuss the contents of
this deceased person's home
and bank account. She said he
left a tidy sum .... the furniture
in the home is priceless ... I
don't think the kids know the.
value and are too dumb to
notice ... they are more interest-
ed in the bank account. The fur-
niture could fetch a pretty
penny.
One caller was overheard
saying, "The oranges are spoil-
ing ... the migrant workers are
scared to pick them ... they


In a theater, a loud musical
ring tone disrupted the theater.
A male voice responded,
"Where you at." Silence, fol-
lowed. Male voice. "Well! we'll
meet you at Why Not about 11."
Silence.
Frustrated patrons across the
country have complained tocell
phone companies about the
high incident of cell phone
insensitivity. The companies are
listening. Sprint is now
installing cell phone booth for
users to respond to and make
calls, in privacy without disturb-
ing others or sharing personal
information. These booths' are
similar to ones used with tradi-
tional phones.
Remember practice good
social skills every day. Be
thoughtful'of others.
Finally, July is the month'
designated as National Cell
Phone Courtesy Month. This
was started by Jacqueline
Whitmire, director of the Palm
Beach school of protocol and


etiquette consultant for Sprint.
Whitmire said, "Poor wireless
etiquette can have a negative
impact on how you are per-
ceived both professionally and
socially."
Thanks to the Noon Time
Kiwanis for the invitation to
speak about cell phone courtesy
on July 5. It was an enlighten-
ing event.

Litterbugs need to clean up their act


Where is the proper place to
dispose of a dirty diaper?
Evidently someone thought it
was the library parking lot, out
of the sun, under our county
van. What are the odds that the
parents aren't keen on recy-
cling, either? I'm pretty sure
they have never checked out
"Litter the Ugly Enemy: An
Ecology Story" or "Let's Talk
Trash: The Kid's Book About
Recycling." Maybe
Okeechobee Library's
"Sanitation Worker" would
open their eyes, or how about
Hardee Library's "Where Does
the Garbage Go?" or "I Drive a
Garbage Truck." It could be a
biography, albeit a fictional
one, titled "Trashy Town,"
where little by little, can by can,
Mr. Gillie, the trash man, cleans
up his town.
Inform yourself and become
more aware of. the society
around you by borrowing
Hardee Library's "The Throw-


away Generation,"
which discusses the
trash problem in this
country, caused by
both people and tech-
nology, and suggests
ways to cut down on
what we throw away,
or reserve their book
"How on Earth Do
We Recycle Plastic?" LIBRAR
Does it bother you
to find cigarette butts Car
in front of your Hess
library, littering the
sidewalks, roadsides,
and even on your lawn? DeSoto
County Library has an eye-
opener in its video "Earth
Daze." As Professor Iris
explores nature, he demon-
strates the importance of pick-
ing up garbage and keeping our
planet clean.
"Garbage Land: On the
Secret Trail of Trash" examines-
the many sources of pollution
and raises the. question of


;Y

oe
sel


whose responsibility
it is to avoid such dis-
asters as was record-
ed in "Love Canal:
Pollution Crisis." For
those who have for-
gotten that particular
mess, the Love Canal
neighborhood in New
York State, was built
LINES over the buried site of
a chemical dump and
lyn the leaching chemi-
link cals contained in
-" decomposing metal
barrels caused serious
health problems for dozens of
families, as it poisoned the
environment.
So we have the deliberate
burying of chemical wastes, the
littering of the ground, and also
burial at sea, as exposed in "A
Citizen's Guide to Plastics in
the Ocean: More Than a Litter
Problem." "Waste War," owned
by the Hardee County Library,
examines the different and


increasing levels of waste pro-
duced by industry and society.
"Waste Disposal and
Recycling" is a look at such
waste disposal problems as
overflowing landfills and haz-
ardous waste. Our county land-
fill department oversees an
award-winning landfill opera-
tion for Highlands County that
should make all of us proud.
Those big recycling bins are
really helping our landfill by
pulling out of the weekly trash
pick-up -tons of paper, card-
board, cans and plastic. But
there are always those who just
won't cooperate, who are, well
trashy. Case in point "The
Great Ringtail Garbage Caper"
by Timothy Foote. A group of
desperate and daring raccoons
organize a bold hijacking
scheme when a pair of efficient
young garbage collectors
threatens their lush food supply.
Yes, there is a book whose
title would lead us to believe


those raccoons had some influ-
ence on the writer. Check out
DeSoto County Library's "In
Defense of Garbage." But my
favorite story has to be "The
Wartville Wizard", whose lead
character fights.a town of litter-
bugs by magically sending each
piece of trash back to the person
who dropped it.

istrative secretary of the
Highlands County Library
System. Library cards are

Incredible edible native plants found in Central Florida


n This is another in a series
of articles written about the
new area urban conservation
program called Florida Yards
& Neighborhoods.
You may not realize it but
some of those carefree native
Florida plants and trees are edi-
ble; at least parts of them are.
So if you'are thinking of replac-
ing some. of your lawn with
plantings' of native plants,
shrubs and trees why not put in
something you can eat.
The red mulberry (Morus
rubra) has edible berries that
may be eaten fresh from the tree
or you can make mulberry pie,
sauce, jam or jelly. The mulber-
ry tree is deciduous so it will.


lose it leaves during the winter
months. It is a medium size
shade or background tree with
large, rough textured, showy
leaves and it fruits in the spring.
The delicious fruit also attracts
birds and other wildlife..
We usually think of purslane
(Portulaca olefacea) as a weed,
but remember a "weed" is only
a plant out of place. Purslane or
fatweed makes a wonderful
ground cover and its succulent
leaves and stems may be eaten
raw in salads or steamed. The
flavor is said to be similar to
green beans, watercress or
spinach.
Gallberry (Ilex glabra) is an
evergreen shrub whose leaves
may be used to make great tea


without caffeine. ".
Gallberry is a mem-
ber of the holly fami- P A
ly that grows from
three to seven feet in
height and can be
used as a screening or
background plant. gS
The showey black- -
fruit provide food for
birds in the winter-
time. To prepare the SIJ
leaves for tea, dry
them and then roast Higi
in an oven until gold- Count
en brown. Steep them Gar
in boiling water for _
two minutes and
enjoy.
The flowering dogwood
(Comus florida) is a small tree,


growing from 15 to
," .,. 25 feet tall. The tree
was not used for
l food, however, the
Indians stripped the
young branches and
F chewed them to clean
- their teeth. The juice
ir. of the twigs is useful
in preserving gums.
flowering dogwood is
ISON a popular ornamental
that does best in partial
lands shade under pine or
oak trees. The beauti-
enMaster ful flowers in the
e spring are followed by
equally attractive,
bright red berries in the fall.
The fruit is well liked by many
birds and animals.


The American persimmon
(Diospyros virginiana) is a slow
growing deciduous tree with
delicious two inch orange fruit
when fully ripe. The tree. can
grow up to 50 feet in height
when fully mature. Two or
more trees are. necessary for
pollination purposes. Ripe per-
simmons are delicious eaten,
from the tree and can be made
into puddings and cakes, while
dried persimmons are like
dates. Enjoy it.
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program is
being implemented through
your local County Extension
Service in Highlands,
Okeechobee and Glades coun-


ties and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319
funding from the U. S.
Environmental Protection
Agency through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.

Ed Ayen is available to
address interested groups such
as homeowners associations,
voluntary organizations and
clubs. For further information,
he can be reached by calling the
Highlands County Extension
Service office at 402-6540 or e-
mail to edayen@ufl.edu, The

In 1961 an up and coming group called The Righteous Brothers

Few knew they were owned by a accomplished musician and

who referred to himself as "a fourth generation heathen," had. an
unexpected encounter with God. As a result, he walked away from

Life history of bay





scallops revealed


Last week, I featured recipes
using the Florida bay scallop.
This week I will go into more
detail about the bay scallop and
its life cycle.
Like clams and oysters, scal-
lops are bivalves. Its upper
valve, or shell, is a dark mottled
color,' occasionally bright yel-
low or orange, and its lower
valve is typically white. Bay
scallops may reach a shell
height of two inches and live
two years, although in Florida
their life span is generally only
one year.
The bay scallop feeds contin-
* uously by "vacuuming" or fil-
tering small particles of algae
and organic matter from the
* water. It does this by funneling
water over open pathways
called gills. One of these path-
ways takes in water and skims
'off particles, .while another
* expels the filtered water along
. with digestive wastes.
Scallops ,open their valves'
when feeding or breathing and
close them when predators
approach. The shell can also be
slammed shut to avoid silt,
N whichh can cog the animal's del-'
icate gills. Many tiny blue eyes
arrayed along the outer rim of
the shell detect movement near
the animal and serve as a warn-
ing system. Unlike clams, scal-
lops do not bury themselves in
Sthe sand. When threatened. the
scallop can swim backwards by
clapping its valves and.
Expelling water. rapidly. The
Sbay scallop spends most of its
life hiding in underwater grass-
es. A bay scallop has the
,remarkable ability to develop
both male and female sexual
organs; consequently, the scal-
lop produces both eggs and


sperm. An interval ..
occurs between the
release of' sperm and
eggs so that self-fer-
tilization is unlikely
to occur. This interval
helps to prevent
inbreeding.
Development of
the reproductive 'NEWS
organs is, influenced
by the amount of T
food available and
the surrounding WATI
water temperature. If
too little food is pres- Jennif
ent, 'the scallop will
direct all its energy
toward survival and will forego
reproduction.
A change in water tempera-
ture may trigger spawning. In
Florida, spawning occurs in the
fall when the temperature
drops, although elsewhere in
.their range, bay scallops typi-
cally spawn earlier in the year
when the temperature rises.
Each scallop is capable of pro-
ducing millions of eggs at once,
but the mortality rate is
extremely high. Only one egg
out of 12 million ma= sur\ ie to
adulthood.
In about 36 hours, the fertil-
ized eggs become tiny larvae
that float in the water for about
14 days before attaching to the
base of seagrass blades. At this
time, larvae are transformed
into juvenile scallops, common-
ly called spat. The spat gradual-
ly move up the seagrass blades,
out of the reach of bottom-
dwelling predators such as
crabs. But een then, survival is
uncertain. As many as 90 per-
cent of the spat will die within
six weeks of latching on to sea-
grasses. Those that do grow


S FROM
lHE
ERSHED
-r Abbe


large enough to avoid
consumption by
predators will even-
tually drop off and
fall to the bottom,
where they will
remain the rest of
their lives.
Even as adults,
scallops live a precar-
ious existence. A
variety -of marine
creatures, including
blue crabs, stone
.crabs, and whelks,
are able to pry the
scallop shells open
and extract the tender


meat within. Sometimes the
scallop can escape this fate by
swimming away. Occasionally,
the algae, tunicates, and other
organisms that attach to scallop
shells may conceal them from
predators,.
Bay scallops are very sensi-
tive to changes in temperature
and salinity. They are also vul-
nerable to changes in water
quality. Water made cloudy by
floating particles and sedi-
ments, referred to as turbidity,
can clog the scallop's gills. The
scallop can close its shell to
protect these gills for short peri-
ods but is unable to shut out the
dirty water for more than about
two hours.
Bay scallops w ere once plen-
tiful throughout Florida's west
coast but have virtually disap-
peared in some areas. An exten-
sive scallop fishery existed in
Tampa Bay 'as recently as the
1960s, but scallops are rarely
found 'there now. Charlotte
Harbor also supported a com-
mercial scallop fishery some 30
years ago. Scientists believe
poor water quality is responsi-


ble for these declines.
Currently, the most extensive
bay scallop populations are
located north and west of the
Suwannee River, particularly
near the fishing hamlet of
Steinhatchee and in St. Joseph
Bay.
Once a population is deplet-
ed, it may not be able to recov-
er on its own, even with
improved water quality and
restrictions on harvest. Scallops
are broadcast spawners,
sequentially releasing eggs and
sperm to maximize fertilization
by other scallops. If no other
scallops are nearby, reproduc-
tion may not be successful.
No commercial harvest of
bay scallops is allowed any-
where in the state, and recre-
ational catches are now limited.
Restrictions have been placed
on scallop harvesting in order to
enhance the natural recovery of
scallop populations.

cle include excerpts taken from

Canaries" written and distrib-

Commission and Florida

Walk away with hood health


Loren Barton was loading a
bag of birdseed into the back of
his car when he noticed his
untied shoe. Loren walked back
inside the store, bent down to
tie it and became short of-
breath.
"I remember when I could
get down on one knee to tie my
shoe," he said aloud to' no one
in particular. Someone was lis-
tening. "There was this skinny
good-looking gal behind the
counter," Barton said. "She told
me that she was that way too,
not very long ago. The woman
told Barton about the weight-
loss support group she attended.
The next Tuesday, 279-
pound Barton joined the same
weight-loss' support group.
"The members were very
friendly and answered my ques-
tions," Barton said. "They men-
tioned I could keep a food
chart, drink water and exercise
as a way to lose weight." Soon


Barton was using a rowing
machine, climbing- his base-
ment stairs, using portion con-
trol and tracking everything.
"I started out walking a mile
a day and worked up to as much
as 12 miles a day." he said.
Twenty-six weeks after joining
Take Off Pounds Sensibly.
Barton reached his weight-loss
goal with a loss of 79 pounds.
"I have received man\ a% ards.'"
Barton said. "TOPS members
sent me cards and encourage-
ment." Barton walked his way
to his ideal weight. He has no
problem tying his shoes.

Last week I wrote my col-

the positive aspects of the expe-
rience. This week, now back in
the USA, I am going to take a
lighter look at our week in this
lovely third world country.
While doing this, I am going

good part of this column will be

As far as we can determine,
the virus that is the focus of this
column was an American one,
hitching a ride with an unknow-

team. That did not make it any
less of a problem.
Tuesday two team members

Editor:
Isn't it ironic that President
Bush used his veto power
Wednesday for the first time

research that he refuses to,
allow has the potential to save

hand he continues shipping our
young men and women to their
deaths in the quagmire that he
created in Iraq. As of'this date,
2,556 of our youth have died in
that hell-hole; thousands more
are seriously injured with no
chance for a normal life.
Isn't sending those service-
men and women, including
thousands of Iraqis, to their
death, or a living death. "cross-
ing a moral boundary" and a
form of abortion? They've
been taken from the wombs of
their families.
Those'stem cells are a micro-

in an orange grove near
Avon Park Cut Off Road.
Bullet holes were not only
found in the body of the
vehicle but also in tires as
well. There were bullet
holes in three different
places across the front of
the house, all being near
windows.
My daughter and her
husband have four children
being 13, 5, 3 and 1; which
all of them have windows
in their bedrooms as well as
a window in my daughter's
room.
Here is my problem and
dilemnia. A police report
was filed with no report
given to my family. The


Avon Park police that
investigated treated my
family more like criminals
than victims. My son-n-
law was told that he was
lying about the vehicle
being shot in his front yard,
they told him to tell the
truth and admit he was
driving the vehicle when; it
was shot. After seeing the
Paint from the vehicle on
the ground, they looked
further and found the bullet
holes .in .the ;house.
Question is, was he treated
this way because he is

Playing

For several weeks, they made
me think I was master of my
domain, king of my roost. Then
my wife and youngest daughter
completed the 14-hour trek south
with-the real power base of the
household, the big three, Charlie,
Little Red and Spyder, our three
cats.
They live very well at the top
of the Wigginton Family food
chain, or at least that is the.way it
seems to me. What they want,
they get. All three being some-
what. elderly now (13, 14, 15
respectively), I have probably
spent more in vet bills .than in
medical bills over the past year.
In addition to the nasty looks
cast my way when I make anti-cat
jokes (my favorite is, "We :have
three cats, which is four too many
for me."),. I am required to
address each by name at first sight
each morning and each' evening
upon arriving home. I must follow,
through with the obligatory
scratch under the chin, and not
complain when one of them wants
to stare me down while I am eat-
ing dinner.

and I dare not neglect my duty,
nor forget mi place.

departing family. He looks %ery


much like a miniature
lion to me, but he is the
least threatening of the
group. Red only gets
into trouble when run-
ning with Charlie, who
is an obvious bad influ-
ence on him. Their
attacks on innocent vic-
tims (geckos, squirrels,
rabbits, birds, Sp.deri
have the look of a well
organized military
operation, moving in
tandem, positioning so


as to provide support.
Spyder is formally a domestic
American shorthair calico with a
mottled coat, meaning she is pret-
ty darned ugly. She was the neigh-
,bor's cat, and was a frequent visi-
tor (and more frequent diner) at
our house. We have movies of our
toddler chasing her around our
house, giggling up a storm.
Spyder was also a- victim of
repeated abuse and neglect, some-
thing that frustrated m\ older
daughters greatly. She is currently
in the feline version of the "', it-
ness protection program" I guess.
because we ended up \ith her
several ears ago.
She is quiet and prefers to stay
to herself. basking in whateverr
sunn\ spot she can find. She can
also become extremely dangerous
when disturbed. She put a claw
into, my son's eye about eight
years ago, and my youngestt '
daughter 'has "'battle scars" all
o0er her arms from her deter-
mined attempts to hold her. The
onhl person she w ill let close to
her for long periods is mI niiddle
daughter.
My daughter expects me to
treat them like the\ were my chil-
dren. I tr) to tell her the\ are on!\
animals, but this just seems to get
me into more trouble I usually
jitst murmur Emni oaths of devouon
to them, as required, and then get


out as fast as I can.
My wife swears that this caste
systems is more my youngest
daughter's doing than hers, yet I
believe I have proof that she is
more interested in their welfare
than in mine. Case in point, I say,
"I have a great idea, let's drive up
to (name a place) and do the
tourist thing for the weekend." I
amti sure you know as well as I do
what the response will be, "that
. sounds like fun, but what about
the cats?" Not, "I know you need
a break and 'the ,trip would be
good for both (or all three) of us."
Although I have pulled it off a
few times, the problems are many,
and the questions remain -the
same. Who will take care of
them?' How can. we make sure
they get enough to ei[? Well, we
spent a small fortune on one of
those timed rotating feeders for
just such an occasion. What about
the litter box? We can use those
disposable ones, right?
In our new house, they own the
,Florida room. It is their haven. I
don't go out there. I try to give
them their space in hopes that
they will return the courtesy. As
the\ say, "not gonna' happen."
The minute I sit down to eat, one
of them is there looking up at me,
.watching me. Those glassy stares
are creepy, I have to tell you. I can
almost hear them thinking. "I
would not hesitate to shred you
like cheap toilet paper if I was just
a little bit bigger." You can look
into those little e)es and see the
v ild beast from which the\
evolved.
Ye&., I know\ where I fit into
things. Right now. I am the bigLer
animal and I will enjo\ the safer
that pro ides. I \ill also sleep
with one e\e open. because I
don't uu[t them for a second.

5 Years Ago
July 29. 2001: The team of
Greg Knowles, Mike
Cleghorn, Charlie Little and
John Palmer shot a 12-
under 59 at the Country
Club of Sebring to take
first place in the second
edition of the Sebring
Firemen Inc. Memorial Golf
Classic. The foursome won
on a match of cards over
the team of Wayne
Stapleford, John Dean,
Rich Banko and A.J.
Balding, also with 12-under
59. The winners carded
nines of 28-31, which
irclud .a., 'aglejl ..A,- "*i,
b: irie'.an.deven pars. The
eagle came on No. 4 (519-
yard, par-5) when Cleghorn
chipped in from the fringe
of the green from about 40
feet.

25 Years Ago
July 29, 1981: A small but
spirited group of Highlands
Swim Streak swimmers
attended the YMCA Future
Champs Swim Meet in
Naples, where 11 of the
local group's members
came away with 31 rib-
bons. The field consisted
of 378 swimmers from
nine teams in the south
Florida area. Jenny Shriner
took first place for the girls
8-under individual medley
and second place in the
freestyle. Shaune Crawford.
took second in the 10-
under boys 50 breast and
Michelle Shriner took sec-
ond in the 13-14 girls back
stroke.


By SCOTW DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Unlike some
things nearing their 30th birth-
day, the annual Highlands
Independent Bank/Sertoma
Golf Tournament just keeps
getting better with age..
This year's 29th annual tour-
ney. set for Aug. 26-27. is back
home again at Sun 'N Lake
after a one-year move to
Highlands Ridge. The return
has made everybody happy,
parucularl. the people who run
the ,event since both the Deer
Run and Turtle Run courses at
Sun 'N Lake share a common
clubhouse.
Highlands Ridge's two


courses, on the other hand, are
several miles apart, which made
for some logistical challenges
last year.
"It's great for e\eribodN."
tournament organizer Eddie
Freeland said of the return. "It
takes a load off us Seitomans,
too, because we've got one cen-
tralized staging area. There's a
lot of %ork put into this and a
lot of great people who help out
and I take my hat off to the
Sertomans last year because
they did a fantastic job last year
of running the tournament with
the length between the tWo
courses."
The tournament is the major
fund-raiser for the Sertoma


Club, which uses the funds to
help the speech and hearing
impaired of Highlands County,-
as well, as the Sertoma Junior
Golf Tour and the Boy Scouts.
As usual, the tournament will
feature the unique format of a
t%%o-m.in best-ball round on
Saturday and a tvo-marn scram-
ble on Sunday. with each two-
some getting to play a different
course each round.
Also, the Luau will again be
held Saturday night, featuring
live entertainment from the
California Toe Jani Band, open
bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres and
dancing. And, according to,
Freeland, the lineup of raffle
prizes is a stunning as ever.


-Freeland -said entries are
pouring in, and anyone who
wants to secure a spot had bet-
ter act quickly
"They're flowing in left and
right. I expect to be full in the
first week in August."
Jeff Fleeman and Steve
Ready of Polk Counts will be
back to defend their six-stroke
victory in last year's e\ent.
Freeland said, as well as the
usual contenders.
"The championship flight is
probably going to be stronger
this year than it's ever been," he
said.
Sponsorships are also steady,

da s in 98-degree heat and
dpzens.of rain delays % ill
change an man's perspective.
I love ice team too, but I
wouldn't eat a 50-eallon drum
'of it. ,
So here's a personal list of
fond memories from the my
first Dixie Baseball season as
we ride off into the sunset.'
The dnve to Okeechobee
typically included a stop at the
Shell station on the comer of
U.S. 98 and U.S. 27 to stock
up on snacks and Gatorade. By
the time I got to Lorida, I had
good idea of % whether thatifore-
boding storm-cell would dis-
rupt the schedule. Rain delays,

of its luster.
"Festivities" and "cere-
monies" would be loose terms.
Speculation of which team
member would participate in
the home run derby was'imme-
diately silenced when it was
learned that the opening cere-
monies wouldn't include a
home run derby this year.
That, however, has been the
least of the worries.
I realize how little that hype
and propaganda really means
in the whole scheme of things,
but the experience is half the
fun of reaching the World
Series. To any kid growing up
at Max Long Recreational
Complex in Sebring, Durrah
Martin Complex in Avon Park
or Lake Placid's Lake June
Park, the World Series is
almost holy; sacred ground.
At the very least, an experi-
ence that even the last place
team will enjoy because of its
novelty.
Team Florida was adamant
about maintaining their emo-

five Louisiana hitters got singles for two runs and
a pair of runs scored when .first baseman Tony
Vazquez's throw to the plate hit the bat sitting on
the ground near home plate and deflected away,
making it 9-6.
More bad luck hit Sebring later in the inning
when. Collin Brower hit a bases-loaded double
and Sebring catcher Mike Jones ran into the on
deck batter: after fielding the wide throw. No
interference was called on the play,, which
allowed tw o runs to score and make it 9-8.
A wild pitch later tied the score and Jones was
thrown out of the game after the umpire ruled he
made a high tag for an out at home.
Sebring manufactured its first.run after Krause
led off with an infield single that turned into tk\ o
bases on a bad throw. Ritter's grounder ad\ anced
Krause to. third and Charlie Peck's sacnfice fly


picture taken and some of the
most priceless shots I took this
year were of rowdy kids 2oof-
ing off in the dugout. Rabbit
ears behind your teammate's
head are always funny.
* 'This year I discovered
boiled peanuts. Head Field's
barbecue beef ',andw ich and
that nott:ine in the worldd is
quite as delicious aj a tried
Twinkie. More importantly,
could anything possibly be
worse for you? I almost had
Bill Jarrett believing that if you
could convince $ our self to eat
a batter-fried hot dog, what's
the dif ference?'. He took a bite
of his comdog and told me to
be quiet.
I'm hot sure how many
versions of "The Star Spangled

Leanne Rhymes' is the prettiest

sent him home to put Sebring up 1-0.
After playing small ball in the first inning,
Sebring turned on the power with two outs in the
second after Mike Jones singled and stole-second
with one out, but was thrown out at home trying
to score on Cor W.tt's. double to left-center.
Instead of being a rally liller, the out at the
plate. energized Sebring, which got a double
d.in the itird-hase line from Dustin Lang (3-
for-4, two RBIs); to take the lead. After a walk
and a hit batter loaded the bases, Ritter cleared
them with a double off the fence in left-center
and Peck picked up his second RBI with a single
to s.iake Sebring tok'a6-1 lead: ,
Three Lotui.sina errors made it 7-1 for Sebring
in the tourth before Louisiana scored a run in the
bottom of the inning despite Peck throwing out a
runner at the plate from right field to complete a
double play.
-Lang's RBI single and Krause's sacrifice fly in
the top of the fifth put Sebring up 9-2 before
Louisiana started its rally.


There are 'exeral players
who I'm looking forward to I
x\ atcluiin, at the next leIel and
beyond. Players like Ty
Jackson, Trey Olier, Daniel
Ware, Fat innette Cotte, Jos.e
.Azripe and Corbin Hoffner..:'
have given me a lot to write
about this year, as well as
countless others who have test-
ed my limits when it comes to
being an "impartial observer."
It takes willpower for an
unbiased reporter to keep from
cheering thee kids on when
they leave it all on the field.
C.,tchine a foul ball
make. i oNt feel cool. I don't
care who you are or where it
happens. I caught one behind
the backstop it M\a, Long this
year and a youngster from
Lake Placid ran upt'o me,
pumping his fist like an umpire
to shout "N\ toure outta' there.!" I
let him throw the bail back'in.
Just make sure to \%atclh out if
you're on the field snapping
pictures. Taking one off the


r)


camera lens is. not so cool.
There are times when watch-
ing Dixie games can be a test
of patience. If it looks like an
early evening is in store thanks
to the 10-run rule. that's when
a scoring rula erupts cutting
the lead to nine. When they rip
open the bags of Tidy Cat to.
dry out the mound, that's when'
the clouds roll in to soak your
scQrebOok.
But for the,kids in
Highlands County, it is their
chance to share' newspaper
space with Lance Armstrong
and LeBron James. When
issues of morality, justice and
community creep into the
sports page. these tikes remind
us why certain topics are worth
discussion and why hard work
and dedication pay dividends.
: This is why Dixie Baseball
is so important and why base-
ball is, so grand.
