VOLUME 9/NUMBER 46

AVON PARK From the ashes of
the Illegal Immigration Relief Act rose
the Concerned Citizens of Avon Park.
A group of about 40 people mostly
Hispanics interspersed with a few blacks
and whites gathered Wednesday
evening at Taqueria Merlo y Tienda
Mexicana on Main Street.
"CCAP," Tito Garay, an Avon Park
resident and owner of Avon TV Center
said, voting on the name he preferred for
the fledgling advocacy group. ''I think
we can say that quickly."
Garay later in the meeting would be
elected to a one-year term as the CCAP's
first president.
"Today, we are here to give thanks to
everybody who helped at the beginning
'and to celebrate a victory," Juan
Montoya said, at the meeting's onset
before sending out a warning. "'But,
nobody knows when the monkey is com-
ing back with a different dress."
The victory Montoya was celebrating
came July 24, when the Avon Park City
Council defeated the Illegal Immigration
Relief Act by a 3-2 vote.
The ordinance would have made
English the official language for all city
government business and would have
punished businesses and landlords who
"aided and abetted" illegal aliens by hir-
ing or pro\ iding hoingnga to then.
"There's not enough space, in your
paper to correct all the misconceptions
about this ordinance that has been in .the
media," Mayor Tom Macklin said on the
Saturday\ before the council defeated the
ordinance.
Patricia Austin, an Avon Park resident
who is home on medical leave from Iraq
where she's an Army contractor. organ-
ized several.protests and a prayer vigil in
the, weeks leading up to the council'vote.
* "Avon Park is the slum city of
Highlands Counlt.\." hhe .aid "\Ve hane-
Ssins here that say. 'Walk and shop A\on
Park. Where is there to shop "
Austin said on& of the reasons she
brought this group together %\ a,. to beau-
tify the city, to bring it up to the. same
levels as Lake Placid and Sebring.
She also designated July 24 as a day
of celebration and said plans are in the
works for annual \ictor\ parties on that
anni'ersar, date.

Detective Kevin Shireman posts a sign for information about a house fire, which turned out to be arson
at 1129 North Ridgewood Drive, Sebring.

SEBRING State Fire
Marshal Detective Kevin
Shireman suspects arson in the
fire Tuesday that left a family of
seven without a home of their
own.
Having spent the previous
.two and half days talking to
neighbors and sifting through
ashes, Shireman hung a
"Wanted" sign on the mailbox
post at 1129 N. Ridgewood


Drive on Thursday, asking for
information and offering a
$2,500 reward from the Florida
Committee on Arson
Prevention.
"He gave me some people of
interest," Shireman said,
explaining that James Craven
believes that somebody who
doesn't like him may have set
the fires.
Because of the investigation,
Shireman didn't want to dis-
close details of the fire.
"I'm only going to say that it
was intentionally set in the liv-


ing room,"' Shireman said,
declining to disclose an exact
location or what fuel source
might have been used.
Such information,. he
explained, is something only
the suspect or suspects would
know and its release could
cloud the investigation.
"These doors were secured,"
Shireman said, when asked if
the Cravens. might have left a
door unlocked. "The fire
department had to do a forced
entry."

A graduate of Florida State

1982, he became involved
with the Seminole Booster

"Words can't describe what

who has worked with him for
years. "He has served as presi-

New budget



approved by



school board


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun '
SEBRING The School
Board of Highlands County
passed its budget for the 2006-
07 school year Tuesday night.
The total millage rate of
7.909 that members approved is
slightly lower than the rate of
8.135 for 2005-06.
This means a property owner
\ ill pay $7.91 for every $1,000
of valuation.
For example, the owner of a
house assessed at $100,000
after the homestead exemption,
paid $814 in school taxes for
2005-06.'This year. the same
owner will pay less, only $791,
should the house retain its earli-
er assessment.
An active real estate market
over the last couple of years
means some homes- have
increased .in value.
Because of increases .in valu-
ation, the board expects to raise
more than $5.8 million, well
over $1.7 million from 2005-
06.
The difference will act as
collateral so: the school board
can borrow $45 million' to be
used for capital impro% ements.
Those additional funds raised
by higher valuations are not a
windfall, however. That is
because the state balances its
contributions with those made
b) the local community. If the
community raises more money,
the state allocates less, so the
total amount a district receives
remains about the same.
Funding has increased at'the


state and district level, as edu-
cators attempt to solve prob-
lems of absenteeism and under
achievement.
The bulk of the new budget
of $174,933,436.51 will go to
day-to-day operations and capi-
tal improvements, although
over half the capital improve-
ment line comes from the $45
million loan. Salaries and bene-
fits take up 82- percent of the
general budget, which h totals
almost $90 million.
The school district will spend
more than $50 million on
instruction and support.
For example. 45 and a half
teachers (sonie are. part-time)
have been added to school fac-
ulties, and 13 new suppon per-
sonnel, including eight more
custodians.
'The board also created a new
position, coordinator of career
and technical education, at the
district level to help implement
its new vocational education
policy.
All in all, the district will be
spending $6 million more dol-
lars on instruction and support
than it did in 2005-06. That
includes $113,670 spent on in-
seraice training for teachers,
about $32.000 more than last
year. -
The school district's share of
state lottery proceeds in 2006-i
.07 ill be $901.257. or 1.1 per-
cent of the total general find
revenue. Those dollars will be
used to support various district
programs.

LAKE PLACID. -- Ruth.
SHeckman, principal of Lake
Placid High School. introduced
the school's new assistant prin-
cipal to members of The School
Board of Highlands Counti on,
Tuesday night.
Michael Hale\ has been hard
'at work at the school since July
10 .
He comes to Lake Placid
from Broward Count\y where he
was the' Air Force Junior
Reserve Officers' Training
Corps instructor' at Coral
Springs High School for nine'
years.
Prior to teaching,' Haley hadl
a 20-year career in, the Air
Force becoming a senior master
sergeant (E-8). He specialized
in aircraft maintenance and
earned ani associate degree in
metals technology while in the
service.
,,He went on to Emory 'Riddle'
'Uni'ersity where he took a
bachelor's degree in technical
management and a\ nation safe-
, 'tv . .
Later he earned a ,master's
degree in educational leader-


ship from Nova University.
As, a father in the. military,
HaleN became in\ol1ed in
coaching tee-ball and soccer..
He noticed how difficult it was
to get parents to volunteer. At
the same time he found working
with young people rewarding
and took on a larger role him-
sel.
He began to judge Junior
ROTC drill meets. on week-
ends, and so-became familiar
w ith the work Junior ROTC
does.
He 'was so impressed, by
both the program and 'the stu-
dents it attracted. that when he
retired Haley applied for a
R Junior ROTC teaching position.
"'As a matter of fact," Hale}
said, "ROTC isn't reallY about
the "military. People have the
mind set that the students join,
the service, but that is ,what
recruiters do.
"(High school) students do
not join. Instead the\ learn
about leadership" and ho"w to
survive in the real world. They
are taught life after school
skills, like ..how. to write
resumes,. conununicate effec-
tivelv. or how to appl\ for cred-


School

it.
"As an Air Force Junior
ROTC instructor. I \uore a uni-
form, but was working for the
Brown% ard Count\ school board."
Some people couldn't under-
stand his choice. With his train-
ing and experience Haley could
have entered the civilian air
industry and earned a high
salary.
'In fact, when he was first
hired at Coral Spnngs the prin-
cipal was convinced Haley \%as
only marking time until he
could get a job in the industry.
Haley had to convince the
pnncipal that he was'exactly
where he wanted to be.
And not onl] did Hale' sia\
for the long haul. he became
interested in ho\w schools work
Sand became progressively more
invol ed ith administrative
issues. After several years, he
began to take on some adminis-
trative functions at the high
school, and \\ ith his masters he'
looked for an actual position.
With famdil in Aton Park,
Haley was fanuliar \kith the
area and so he applied to Lake
Placid when GarN Jenkins
retired earlier this sear.

Rebuilding begins for family,


who lost home to arson fire


By KEVIN J. SHUTr
News-Sun
SEBRING 'When Ed
Palmer walked up to Tracy
Craven and handed her some
cash, he didn't know that her
family just learned that they
were victims of arson.
Palmer had just gotten out of
the hospital and his wife
Suzanne Palmer drove him by
-1129 N., Ridgewood Drive,
where a fire Tuesday afternoon
consumed the family's three-
bedroom house that was con-
verted into four to accommo-
date all seven of them.
"God. bless .you," Tracy,
Craven said to Ed Palmer.
He wasn't looking for recog-
nition and didn't want to say
how% much he gave the Cravens,
"\Ve read it in the paper and
just decided to come by,"
Palmer said. "It's a tough thing
with school starting."
For the family who lost their
home Tuesday to a fire, the
icpudiding has begun.
"We know they're going to
i r / -


need furniture and kitchen uten-
sils and stuff like, that," Art
Harriman, executive director of
the Red Cross' Highlands
County. office, said on
Thursday. "The place was just
gutted inside."
His office responded to the
Craven family's disaster, pro-
viding .food and clothing on
scene .and will help with the
first month's rent when the fam-
ily finds a new place to li\e.
James and Tracy Craven, and.
their four children, were out
paying bills Tuesday afternoon
when they were returning from
a ba&k.
To alleviate their fears, Tracy
Craven said she had James
drive to their home. But, they
soon discovered it was their
house that was on fire.
"They didn't need a place to
stay," Harriman said, explain-
ing that normally the Red Cross
will provide shelter at a motel
until other arrangements could-
be'made. ...


With both sets of parents liv-
ing in the area, Tracy said
Tuesday they'd have some-,
where to lay their heads..
Currently, the family is stay-
ing with hei mother.
So far, friends, families and
coworkers have. contributed a
queen-sized bed, some clothing
for the girls and toys, ,
"My son has already gotten,

alike.
Plans are to park the show
vehicles in the fenced-in area
along the front straightaway,
which normally holds motor
homes during the annual run-
ning of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring. Just as during the
races, vendors will be set up
along the midway, with parking
in the grassy areas.
The Heartland VW Club has
been soliciting vendors and also
will establish "swap spots" for
those wishing to buy, sell and-
trade new and used parts and
even cars. The vendors spaces
will be free for a 10-by-20
space. A small fee will be
assessed for more space.
The raceway VW exhibition
will be what is known as a
"show and shine" event, mean-
ing that trophies will be distrib-
uted'by popular vote, instead of
the group hiring professional-
judges to come in and rate the
different entries.,


In addition, the participants
will have two different opportu-
nities to win trophies. Once at
the track, then again at the
downtown cruise,
Barry Foster, who is master
of ceremonies for the monthly
cruise, is looking forward to the
daylong event at the raceway as
the perfect lead in to the
Saturday Nite Cruise.
"As I understand it, they're
going to wind things up
about 4:30 p.m. then come in to
the Circle en masse. The way
the historic sports cars do for
the Circle of Speed and the
Taste of the Race each March.
We'll already have the music
going on and the cookers for the
Wings Around the Circle event
so the parade lap will add a lot
of excitement," he said.
After the trophies are award-
ed downtown, at 7:30 p.m. the
VW Club will host its second
annual vintage parts and acces-
sories auction.

Hovercraft rides like a dream


By KEVIN J.SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING A childhood
dream is fulfilled.
From a friend's lakeside lot,
on north Lake Jackson, Rob
Robinson launched his craft.
with a roar as he glided eight
inches over the sand, then the,
water.
"Once you've driven a hov-
ercraft, you'll never go back to
anything else," Robinson said.
with a smile as wide as
Ralphie's on Christmas Day
after receiving his Red Ryder
BB gun.
Robinson retired from the.
Army as a sergeant first class
after 22 years, including a
deployment to Afghanistan to
support Operation Enduring
Freedom. He and his family
recent\ moied to Highlands
County, where he's an Army


Junior ROTC cadre and wife
Tracy coaches grymnnastics for
the Highlands Count\ Family
YMCA.
Robinson is half-British (his
mother is Scottish) and he lived
in England for a % while when his
father deployed to Vietnam.
"I got to see ho\ercraff in:
England," he said. making ref-
erence to the fernes that shuttle
people and autos across the
English Channel. "Plus, I think
it's the James Bond-Johnny
Quest mystique. What guy
doesn't idolize James Bond ?"
With his reflective sunglass-
Ses and %%isp), longer-than-
SArmi-regulation hair blow ing
in the %\ind. he sort of resem-
bled a Bond character as he did
doughnuts on the "sater. using
body English to steer the craft.
"' read about them all the
time." Robinson said. e\plain-


"I got to see hovercraft in England

... Plus, I think it's the James

Bond-Johnny Quest mystique.

What guy doesn't idolize James

Bond?'
ROB ROBINSON, owner of The Dragon


ing that he brought himself up
to speed on hovercrafts after
. buying his a couple years ago at
an Okeechobee junkyard for
$50.
Typically, hovercrafts like his
go for $10,000 or more brand
new. 'After repairs,- rebuilding
and a new motor, Robinson
invested $5.000 into The
Dragon.


The two-stroke, 650cc motor
is for racing, he said, but the
six-bladed propeller isn't. The
hull of the craft is fiberglass,
which is surrounded by a skirt
made of heavy-duty plastic.
The propeller provides
propulsion and lift, diverting
1/3 of its force to fill the 64
cells of the skirt.
Should one cell rupture, the


adjacent cells over-inflate to fill
the void, Robinson said.
The skirt is divided into three
sections. To replace all three
would cost about $600.
He's had the hovercraft oper-
ational for about a month, hav-
ing put its restoration on the
back-burner for "more impor-
tant" things like moving here
and buying a house.
"In Florida it's registered as a
watercraft," Robinson said,
explaining that he stumped
local officers when he went to
register The Dragon. "It took
them off guard, they didn't
know how to register it. They
had to run back and look at their
books.".
Though the hovercraft can
run. over hard surfaces,
Robinson said he doesn't
believe that it's street legal.
"The water is more forgiv-
ing," he said, explaining that
he'd rather take it out on the
lake anyv a .


Five gallons of fuel at a 50:1
ratio of gas to oil allows him
about two hours of operation.
"I just want him to get it out
of his system," Tracy Robinson
said, explaining that her hus-
band is an adventuristt" who
always needs to be doing some-
thing. "Cleaning it and main-
taining it keeps him busy. And,
he's wanted this thing his whole
life."
Tracy Robinson said she has-
n't driven it yet.
"It's very hard to control,"
she said, preferring to let her
husband have his fun. "It's not
just get on and go. There's no
brake."
With pride, Robinson points
out that the British invented and
perfected the hovercraft.
"Right now, I'm just enjoy-
ing it," he said, when asked if
hie had any plans to make use of
the race engine he installed. "I
have no aspirations to race it."

ACTION
Continued from 1A
"We need a positive message
for a better Avon Park for all of
us," dairy farmer and licenses
attorney Joe Wright said to
applause, encouraging the com-
munity to attend all future city
council meetings and to "seek
out those sympathetic to our
cause and get them to vote."
At one point asking reporters
to put down their pens, Wright
promised the CCAP he'd run
against city councilman Doug
Eason if no qualified candidate
opposed him.
The CCAP agreed that their
biggest initiative would be to
get all qualified residents to
register to vote in whatever
jurisdiction they belonged.
They also said they would take
the initiative to help down trod-
den people in the city fix up
their homes, buying and apply-
ing paint and through other
projects.
A president, vice president,
coordinator, four secretaries
and a treasurer Were voted into
office.
"What we're looking for are
.qualified individuals to lead us
into the. future," Abner
Rodriguez said, declining to
take any of the offices. "Unlike
with the city council, your opin-
ion counts here."
Garay will serve as president
for a year. His vice president is
Diana Rodriguez and the treas-
urer is Jeff Williams, a local
businessman.
Austin will serve as coordi-
nator with assistance from her
four secretaries.
Standing in his electronics
store Thursday morning, Garay
discussed solutions to the prob-
lems facing Avon Park.
"The (city) council needs
input from its citizens because
the council has no profession-
als," Garay said, alleging that
none of the five council mem-
bers have training in city man-
agement. "I was hoping. some-
"body would come up and tell us
we had a professional in the
capacity of running our little
town.'"
His. plan of action 'is two-
fold . .
First, the CCAP must help
-the city address the problems
Macklin seemed concerned
ivith when he proposed the
ordinance.
"Code enforcement," Garay
said. "Too man. people in
houses and making sure the
town is kept clean."'
SBut, before enforcing the
code Garay said the citN needs

Concerned Citizens of Avon
Park President Tito Garay dis-
cusses his plans for the new
organization that grew from
July's protests against an Avon
Park ordinance.

solutions to the problem -
more apartments like the ones
being built on Hal McRae
Boulevard.
"We're just like Louisiana
right now," he said. "Louisiana
is breaking all the codes' right
now because there's. no place
for all the people to stay. If we
want to solve the problem, the
only solution is more apart-
ments."
On cleaning the community,
Garay said it was a matter of
talking to the people. .
'"You have to say some-
thing," he said, explaining that
he met with about 20 residents
of the Golden Age Villas, a
racially-mixed group of low
income families, who turned
around and cleaned up their
streets afterward. "The thing
was, nobody had talked to
them."
The biggest concern to the
city, Garay said, should be how
many apartments to build and
where.
He's been in business in
Avon Park since 1983, having
grown up "down. the road" in
Hardee County. Garay plans on
starting a new business resi-
dential construction contract-
ing., -
Pan toof hii plan is toopen
the lines of communications
between the cict and the CCAP,
many of whom feel .that
Macklin- pt on the table a *'
measure that has divided the
community.
."We will have to," Garay
said, e\plaining that he hasn't
.spoken to Macklin, despite the '
controversy that ensued' in Ju I.
"We will need to know from"


-(the city council) what are their
plans, to see if they coincide.
We don't want ordinances that
are unnecessary."
Speaking to private property
rights, he said he wouldn't sur-
render them without a fight. He
said the failed ordinance
required businesses to empower
the city to punish them.
"That's not the American
way," Garay said. "This is my
building. I bought it. I pay the
taxes. I'm not going to. let them
tell me what to do."
Having read the Hazelton,
Pa., ordinance that passed a
week before Avon Park's failed,
Garay said both "looked identi-
cal."
They weren't.
,"That ordinance can't be
enforced unless you break all
the rules," he said. "The illegal
part I didn't have a problem
with."
To set English as the official
language of the city would give
the impression to outsiders that
the community was racist, he
said.
"We can't say that our city
hall is a racist place," Garay
said. "Local governments rep-.
resent the people not the lan-
guage."
When asked if Americans'
should ignore illegal immigra-
tion, he said, "No, we can't look
the other way."
But, there's no easy solution
either, Garay. said.,
The country has three
options, he said, all of which
include closing down the bor-
ders to illegal entry, in the north
.as well as to the south -:decide
how many people it wants to
allow into the country legally to
take the jobs he. said Americans
won't do none. a fe\\ or
many. .
He also called for amnesty
for illegal aliens w ho already
lie withinn the country's bor-
ders, % ith pro\ iions that wouldd
require them to "earn" their cit-
izenship while felon-s wouldd be
deported.'
But, it's not an issue for local'
government, GaraN said. "I
think something made
(Mackliii) stray off the path."
The reason Avon Park and
the /rest of the country\ are in,,
their current predicaments,
Garay-'said,; is bec-urse of eco"-
nomics.
"That's the on1\ reason ille-
gals are here," he said.
"Because -w e benefit from
them."

The Fall Heartland Idol Compeution is just a few.
stanzas away from the first qualifying round of

and talented young lady who founded and executed
Sebnng's first Heartland Idol'?
She is Diana LNnn Walker. who moved from
Holl. ood to Sebring in 1997 As her first involhe-
ment with Sebnng recreation, -,he
organized the Jaycee Easter Egg
Hunt on the Circle and continued it
successful for four years.
By nature. Walker is a fun-lov-
ing person. She has to be. with a

The ide for the Heartland Idol competition devel-
oped during a platt ful. conversational banter with her
grandfather. Arthur \iera. a short time before his
death.
"I %as secretary\ for the Do\wnto\%n Merchants and
Professional Association and my uncle %%as president.
Both of our families had businesses in the downtown
area. WVe "ere always coming up %%ith new ideas to
market our little cotnmunirN. and my grandfather was
such a fan of all our craz, projects. Grandfather said.
*Wouldn't it be cool to do a singing contest like
American Idol.' I laughed at the idea." she said.


2006-07


GUZMAN


season


SEBRING The third
annual Heartland Idol. host-
ed by the Sebring Downtown
Merchants and
Professionals. will be start-
ing very soon.
The inaugural e\ent w\as a
huge success, bringing thou-
sands of people downtown
over the course of five


Months later at a marketing summit. Walker men-
tioned the idea. Vickie Jones. News-Sun senior ad,'er-
tising executive, jumped at the possibility and said the
newspaper would lo'e to help sponsor it. A few daNs
later, the Highlands Art League chairman called to sa\
that she would hke to see the Heartland Idol idea be a
part of their 12 Hours of Art & Community Festi\al
Finale.
After a few meetings and more community spon-
sors, the Heartland Idol was born.
The series of humcanes in 2004 caused frustrautons
and delays, but they managed to establish a $1.000
grand prize. Twenty-one semi finalists turned into 10
finalists. 10 finalists into fi'e. and Nell. Guzman was
crowned the first Heartland Idol in 2004.
The telephone at Unw\ rap The Party. w here Walker
assists her mother, began to nng constantly. It seemed
that many people wanted the Heartland Idol to sing at
their events. Walker e'en had a finalist sing at her
wedding.
Due to its success, the younger generation wanted
to be a part of the adventure and Heartland Idol Junior
Teen w\as created a few\ months later. It has recently
completed its second year.
The community and businesses grew so fond of the
event that the 2005 prize doubled to $2.000.
Walker said. "'Although our business has moved to
Highway 27. we are still big fans of downtown and
are emotionally. as well as physically, attached to this
event. We are not only the founders of the Heartland
Idol. but our store has become the headquarters for all
questions, answers, and applications.
"The event is still held downiow n, but due to our
hea\y invohement and knowledge acquired. we make
sure that e\ervything goes according to plan.
"Although my grandfather is no longer with us. I
am sure he would be proud of what I ha\e done with
his idea and I continue even show in his honor."

A real gift from

school's angels
Editor : '
I was hesitant at first to write
this letter but now I know it is
what God would have me do. ,
I know people usually write,
editorials expressing a com-'
plaint or concern, but this letter
I hope :brings a smile to all who
take the time to read it,
We moved to Sebring from
upstate New York in October
20QQ2, unable to work any
longer due 'to injuries at the
work place. Sebring was our
choice due to family already-
'living here: '
Almost r'o N ears later I was
diagnosed u'ith skin cancer.
Thinking it was not going to be
a big deal, I had surgery 'in
October 2004. My wife, being
a former Christian school
teacher, decided to get back to
work to help with medical bills.
She chose to be a substitute
teacher, then eventually a full-
time para at Avon Elementary
School.
This position was art answer
to prayer. Often aftet substitut-
ing at Avon Elementary, she
commented that of all the'
schools she had worked at, this
one was unique. The teachers
were very helpful and friendlyL
and the students were very well
behaved.
Four months after my wife
started her full-time para posi-
tion, I needed another surgery,
Dec. 8 to be exact. Again, Feb.
2, 2006. Yet still another May
14. Throughout all of this, my
wife was 'shown an outpouring
of support and prayer of all the
staff at the school.
As I lay in .the hospital
recovering, the prayers and
cards began. On one particular
day, my wife brought home a
card signed by all the staff at
the school. Not only the card,
but several hundred dollars
tucked inside ... My wife,
daughter and myself just had a
good cry over such love from
the school.


Now I must tell

but I don't lei a da%

The beauty of women over 40


This for the men who dared
not to date a woman over 40,
choosing to date a younger tro-
phy like, clutch purse kind of
damsel young enough to be
your daughter, perhaps your
granddaughter. Someone who
giggles at every sentence while
pretending to be naive, as she
strokes your ego.
This also for that strikingly
hot, brilliant woman who has
aged with grace and has it all
together ... beauty, brains and
passion.
In case you missed it on 60
Minutes, this is also for all girls
around 40 and for guys who are
scared of girls over 40! This
was written by Andy Rooney
from CBS 60 Minutes.
Andy Rooney says:
"As I grow in age, I value
:women who are over 40 most of
all. Here are just a few reasons
why

Why such a

Highlands County commission

unquenchable thirst you have

The hot topics that you have,
let out of the bag so far are
impact fees and anincrease in
the sales tax. And I ask why?,
Wh) do we need $15,000 and
higher impact fees. on. new
homes and $100.000 impact
fees on new businesses? Then,
on top of that, you want .an
additional half percent increase,
in the sales tax. Why? ,
You have opted to' enact
every optional tax allowed by
state law. You.ha\ve enacted a 2
percent "tourist" tax and you
still need more. Why?
As most people know there
has been a dramatic increase in
property values in the county
over the past two or three years.
Real estate prices have doubled
and, in some cases, tripled and
then some. According to what
we learned in college econom-
ics, the average person. moves
about every seven years.
Therefore, I believe that there
will be about a 20 percent
increase in property tax rev-
enue this year and in each of
the next five or six years, which


will then total more than dou-

Hezbollah to lose in this pres-

directly involved and the
U.S.A: cannot allow Israel to
lose without becoming directly

Buses take to the streets as new school year begins


Signs of summer ending are
upon us.. Florida's tax free
school supply days are over and
we are getting prepared for
another school year here in
Highlands County. With that in
mind we should be preparing
ourselves for seeing many of
those bright yellow buses trav-
eling around during the week
days.
Did you know that even in
our seemly rural county each
school day 98 school buses will
begin transporting children on
160 bus routes?
Or buses will have approxi-
mately 1,700 stops to make, as
they will be transporting 6,500
school children from these
stops to school and back. Over
the course of the school year
our buses will have covered'
more than 1,500,000 miles to
complete their duties.
With this in mind I wanted to
remind everyone of "their

School buses and

five generations of
school children.
Although yellow HIG
wasn't adopted as the
school bus color until HO
1939, school buses
have been around J.P.
since 1915, about as -

In all that time there has been
an uneasy co-existence between
school buses and motorists.

dents, motorists must
stop too. But
motorists often don't
want to stop.
Motorists want to get
where they are going,
with- little interrup-
tion and as quickly as
they can.
Yet, in a 1997 sur-

- of the drivers inter-
Fane viewed felt that the
-- most dangerous
unsafe driving
behavior was passing a school
bus with its lights flashing and
stop arm extended. Passing a
stopped school bus was consid-
ered to be more dangerous than
any. other unsafe driving behav-
ior, more dangerous even than
racing another driver, driving,
through a stop sign or red light,
crossing railroad tracks with red
lights blinking, passing in a no-
passing zone, and speeding.
Listed are a few facts about this
subject;
Every year, approximately'
440,000 public school buses
travel more than 4 billion miles
and daily transport 24 million
children to and from schools
and school-related activities.
School buses account for an
estimated 10 billion student
trips each year.
By all measures, school,
buses are the safest motor vehi-
cles on the highways.
When comparing the num-
ber of fatalities of children ages
5 through 18 during "normal
school transportation hours," in
the 1989 through 1999 school
years, school buses are 87 times
safer than passenger cars, light
trucks, and vans.
From 1989 to 1999, an
average of 10 passengers were

killed each year in school bus
crashes.
Most of the school bus
fatalities were in non-surviv-,
able. situations (the fatality
occurred at the point of maxi-
munm damage to the school
bus).
b From 1989 to 1999, an
average of 30 pedestrians were
killed each year while getting'
on or off school buses, 23 of.
which were children struck by.
the school bus. The other seven
pedestrians were struck by
another vehicle.
Most student pedestrian
fatalities in school bus-related
crashes occur when coming
.home from school during day-
light hours. School buses manu-
factured after Jan. 1, 1977, must
meet a series of strict Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards, which have proven
to greatly enhance the safety of
school buses.
School buses are required
to meet more Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standards than


any other type of motor vehicle.
The majority of those killed
in bus related incidents are chil-
dren, 5 to 7 years old. They are
hit in the danger zone around
the bus, either by a passing
vehicle or by the school bus
itself. It is illegal for a vehicle
to pass a bus with its red light
flashing.
Young children are most like-
ly to be hit because they:
* hurry to get on or off the bus,
* act before they think and
have little experience with traf-
fic,
* assume motorists will see
them and will wait for them to
cross,,
* don't always stay within the
bus driver's sight, or
* drop something as they get
off the bus and run into the path
of the bus to pick it up.
Teach your child to get on
and off the bus safely:
M When getting on the bus,
stay away from the danger zone
and wait for the driver's signal.
Board the bus one at a time.


When "getting off the bus,
look before stepping off the bus
to be sure no cars are passing on
the shoulder (side of the road).
Move away from the bus.
Before crossing the street,
take five "giant steps" out from
the front of the bus, or until the
driver's face can be seen. Wait
for the driver to signal that it's
safe to cross.
Look left-right-left when
coming to the edge of the bus to
make sure traffic is stopped.
-Keep watching traffic when
crossing.
Safety steps you can take:
Supervise children to make
sure they get to the stop on
time, wait far away from the
road, and avoid rough play.
Teach your child to ask the
driver for help if he/she drops
something near the bus. If a
child bends down to pick up
something, the driver cannot
see him/her and the child may
be hit by the bus. Have your
child use a backpack or book
bag to keep loose items togeth-
er.
Make sure clothing and
backpacks have no loose draw-.
strings or long straps, to get
caught in the handrail or bus
door.
Encourage safe school bus
loading and unloading.
0 If you think a bus stop is in
a dangerous place, talk with
your school office or trans-
portation director about chang-
ing the location.
As always drive defensively
and arrive alive. Help keep our
children safe by being vigilant
around school buses.

Hissing

gators
When I was moving to
Florida, I was vehemently
warned about alligators and
how ferocious they were. I
was reminded that I should
run in a zig-zag pattern if
ever confronted with an
attacking alligator. They
can run up to 30 miles per
hour, but only straight for-
ward. Like I'm going to be
able to remember to run
crookedly if anw alligator is
after me (www.nps.gov/
ever/eco/gator.htm).
Quentin Tobias Rex
(Q.T. Rex) andI settled
into my Tampa. apartment
quite comfortably. The
laundry faciliues were at
the main office. w which
fronted the largest lake of
the'complex. That lake also
claimed the largest alliga-
tor, a 12-footer. I never did
see him, but I did think I
met him one night.
QT and I hopped in the
car, %went to do laundry and
take a walk. It was just get-
ting dusk and we couldn't
see more than a few feet
ahead of us. Resie, bein2 a
curious cat, wanted to walk
down to the lake.
So started a tug-of-w ar
with me tr\in to walk
away from the lake. and
-.QT trying to walk to\\ard
the lake. This tussle contin-
ued for a few minutes.
Each time QT would tug on
his leash, he %would gain a
little more ground because
I couldn't stand to think I'd
be choking him otherwise.
By that time, night had
fallen. The lake and the
grassy slope leading down
to it %were completely
obscured b\ darkness. I had
moved closer to QT with '
the intention of picking him
up and carr, ing him to a
more lighted area of the
parking lot. Mind you, I
wasn't planning to carry 15
pounds of determined
claws and fur very far at
S all. Just as I bent down to
pick him up. I heard a loud,
hissing sound.
Now. \ou have probabb
watched as many scary
mo\ ies as I have. especially ,.
"Crocodile Dundee" and
the like. If so. you know
that a hiss is the sound an
alligator makes just before
pouncing on \ou. At least,
that's how it happens in the
movies: don't bet \our life
on it.
Remember Pepe Le Peu.
%ho would run in mid-air
v\hen he. was about to make
a bee-line? I heard that hiss
and 'screamed. Q T j u m ped
as high as mN shoulder
height and proceeded to do
his mid-air dance as a pre-
liminarN to scramming
outta there.
Imagine how foolish I
felt when I realized the
water sprinkling s\ stem
had started up and was
working just as it should,,
een with all the air that
was.being released (hiss- -
ing) out of the sprinkler
heads. '
If you can't, get enough
alligators, go see Gatorama ,
(www.gatorama.com/pic
tures.htm). ,

Muddled 'Miami Vice' not very arresting


I've typed and deleted sever-
al sentences in an attempt to
avoid starting this review col-
umn with a hearken back to the
1980s. This is attempt number
four, so I will cop out and fade
back to when I was a kid sitting
cross-legged on the living room
floor in 1987 watching TV...
I .remember a few things
about "Miami Vice" the televi-
sion series. First of all, there
was the theme music. Those
synthesized Congo-drums still
get me playing "dash-key-
board" in the car and occasion-
ally it was all I needed from the
show before I was off to do
other things.
Of course, there was the
wardrobe in all its pastel and
cotton glory. There were also
cameos with Glen Frey wherein
they'd weave tunes like "You
Belong to the, City" and
"Smuggler's Blues" while
planes landed, boats skimmed
and Sonny, would scope the
babes on South Beach.'
I remember the energetic,
drug-bust episodes .being a bit
complicated for my 11-year-old
brain to fathom, but by show's
end, Crockett and Tubbs
worked it- out in a way that at
least had me thinking I under-
stood, and they even had a few
laughs on the way.
Aside from Sonny Crockett
(Colin Farrell) and Ricardo
Tubbs (Jamie Foxx), none of
those things remain in Michael
Mann's updated film version of
the hit show. In fact, precious
little of the city of Miami itself;
is even featured in the film.
There's a cursory shot of the
city skyline from a rooftop, a

we spend most of our time in
Paraguay, Haiti and Cuba.
Make that, we spend most of
our time confused in these loca-
tions.
The film gets cranking right
out of the gate, hurtling us -
ready or not into the under-

of Linkin' Park's "Numb" as
people we don't know start
doing things we don't under-
stand. Scowling and scanning
the crowd of revelers are the
wickedly-slick Crockett and
Tubbs going about their police
business. .
The discombobulating club
scenes are. interspersed with
scenes of a weasly informant,
who has been found out and is
frantically trying to flee Miami.
Dozens of mumbling cell-'
phone conversations tell us
things have fallen apart (so
, many, in fact, that it might
make an entertaining drinking
game) and Sonn. and Ricardo
are forced to go undercover to
upend.a drug cartel. As Tubbs
observes at a later point,,
"There's undercover and there's
whichh way is up." You said it,
buddy.
Cop flicks are supposed to be,
brain benders. I understand that.
Plot twists and turns as e i-
dence is uncovered and motives
are revealed are what make the
genre so appealing. It's not that
"Miami Vice" ,is hyper-intelli-
gent, it's just that it's so loaded
with indecipherable dialects,
jargon and drow ned-out dia-


logue that making your own
connections is nigh on impossi-
ble. Crockett's love-interest
Isabella has such a thick
Chinese accent that I had to
cock my head like the RCA dog
whenever she was on the
screen.
I kept waiting for a moment
of clarity when things w would all
come together in m) mind and
it never occurred. Eventually, I
just sat back and took in, the
shoot-outs and explosions.
"Miami Vice" is a film that
needs to be seen twice to fully
grasp. The irony is, it's not
exciting enough to warrant a
second, viewing. Without' a
notepad and an interpreter, it
probably wouldn't do you any
good anyway.

One of the greatest blessings
of this life is to teach, another
person concerning the unparal-
leled story of Jesus Christ. To
see one become enthralled with
his birth in a manger, his rich
and stoned life. his lo ing sur-
render to death and the
unspeakable reward that comes
with seeing that person, ,with
whom you 'have shared this
wonderful story of love,
become one of God's children.
In every,corner of the globe.
we need more Bible teachers. I
would dare. say that virtually
-every church could use more
.help in their educational pro-
grams. That is to say, they need
more teachers and teacher's,
aides.
Why the need? Or better yet,
why the shortage? Should not
people of God love to tell the
story of God? If we. had been'
saved from a burning building,
a flooded house, or some natu-
ral disaster, would we not want
to share that good news? Well,
we have been saved, and from a
more devastating dilemma than
any tornado, hurricane or bliz-


zard. We were saved
from death. Maybe
more clearly. stated.
we %were "raised from
the dead." Ephesians
2:1 tells us. "And Nou
He made aliie, Who
were dead in tres-
passes and sins."
Good New s,
indeed. VER
Now there is the SmI
motivation for teach-
ing, but what should Vqi
characterize, every -
Bible teacher? What Verlor
traits must each have "-
whether teaching the
nursery class or a class on the
deepest truths of the Word?
Teachers love
We will never feel a sense of
urgency to teach others about
Jesus until we love others in the
same way Jesus did. You know
the verses: "For God so loved
the world...", "Greater love has
no one than this, than to lay
down one's life for his friends,"
from John 3:16. and 15:13. A
teacher's love must be likened
unto that love. It must be a sac-

rificial love.
There is a commit-
ment when teaching a
Bible class or teach-
ing someone about
Christ in their home
There is the sacrifice
of time, effort and
preparation. There
must be the prayers
of lo e offered for
students. Paul began
each of his letters
reminding his "stu-
dents" that he loved
them and was ever in
prayer for: them.
When we love- our
students there will be


results. . .
Teachers live
"I discipline my body like an
athlete, training it to do what it
should. Otherwise. I fear that
after preaching to others I
myself might be disqualified,"
reads 1 Corinthians 9:27, Paul
knew every teacher was only
qualified when he or she would
"practice what they preached".
Every student who we come
in contact w ith, especially those


we have a part in bringing to
"Jesus, will be watching and
looking for that example to be
followed. They will not expect
- perfection, 'but shouldn't they
be able to anticipate a life that
mimics the one the\ have been
taught about from us? Paul
thought so. To his hearers in 1
Corinthians 11:1 he ,said,
"'Follow me as I follow Christ."
Teachers learn
An attribute that every
teacher must have is that they
themselves remain "teachable".
Study for yourself. Be sure
whatyou're teaching has its ori-
gin with God and not with the
tradition of your church. Study
new ways to present. truth.
Attend teacher training semi-
nars when possible. Tap into the
knowledge of other teachers.
Above all, allow' your teaching
to touch others because you
have learned from the Master.

History Lesson
'5 Years Ago
August 5, 2001: Avon
Park's Luke Sedlock forgot
his baseball shoes the
night before the Dixie
Youth Majors champi-
onship game against
Chipley in Lakeland and his
mother had to go out and
buy him a new pair. In his
new black Nikes, Sedlock
went out and hit three
home runs, propelling
Avon Park to a 9-0 win and
giving them their first ever
Dixie Youth championship.
"It was all the shoes. I had
to get lucky shoes," said
Luke, who hit a two-run
homer in the first inning, a-
solo shot in the third
inning and another two-run
blast in the fourth inning
for five RBIs. The long ball
was Avon Park's friend the
whole tournament. Luke's
three home runs gave him
five in the tournament and
the team hit a total of 14 in
the five games. In the
championship game, pitch-
er Johnny Sedlock was just
as important, holding
Chipley to three hits and
throwing the only shutout
of the tournament.

25 Years Ago
August 5, 1981: Sebring
High's seven-girl cheer-
leading squad won first-
place team honors at a
United States Cheerleader's
Association camp at St.
Leo College, qualifying
them for the;national event
in Lansing, Mich. On an
individual basis, Fran Haas
and Susie Cole received
first- and third-place hon-
orsi respectively, during
the four day camp. The
entire squad Christine
Coghill, Susie Cole, Colleen
Doyle, Leslie Gray, Fran
Haas, JoAnna Handley and
Jerry Leach became eli-
gible for the USCA National
Grand Championships. The
four-day camp was spent
learning new cheers, pom-
pon routines, stunts and
pyramids while attending
sessions for individual
evaluation and'squad lead-
ership.

High School Football

New Devils' coach in high spirits


Perkins is pleased with

team's effort in offseason
By MARCUS WILK!INS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Streams of water muddied
the fringe of the Avon Park practice field on
Wednesday as the Red Devils went about their
drills in the sweltering heat.
The athletes. drained water-filled
Powerade bottles down their throats and
over their heads, but the sweat seemed
to burst from. every pore as fast as they
could replenish it.
Under the watchful eye of new coach --
Earnest Perkins, no one complained.
The Devils are starting to get in the PERK
football swing of things, but with the
advent of the first full-pads practice this after-
noon, the conditions only look to get hotter.
Seemingly imper ious to the heat, Perkins
was in high spirits..
"After we got the spring game concluded,
these young men hlavebeen in the weight room
at six in the morning, every morning. Once we


Th


got that established, I asked the guys to get jobs
.this summer," said Perkins. "I'm trying to not
only preach the importance of education, but
learning to have that self-reliance."
Perkins and his staff had the team divided
into several stations where they are laying the
foundation for defensive assignments, punt
returning and special teams and the grueling
trench work of the linemen.. Understandably,
the players were not all smiles. The
-. assistant coaches' shouts of "water
break!" were a welcome respite
throughout the camp during a session
that began at 3:45 p.m.
Even without the cumbersome equip-
: i ment, this is hard work.
iM "Since the spring our cardiovascular -
4S rates have gotten a lot better. Avon Park
has really turned the corner," added
Perkins.
Always quick to emphasize the importance
of off-the-field accomplishments, Perkins
swelled with pride when discussing the future
of tight end/defensive end Josue Ortiz. Class

Led high school team
to 58-17 record in her
three varsity seasons
By JIM METCALFE
spI : ',;ll I" II,, .",r''*'; l.. l!
KALIDA, Ohio The
Sunshine State \. as too much of
an attraction for Kalida senior
volleyball player Michele
Remlinger to pass up.
Last Friday afternoon, she
became the second Putnam
Counts iOhio) League \olley-
ball performer to sign to play at
South Florida Community
College. joining Columbus
Grove's Amy Birkemeier, who
signed April 4.
"Amy and I are good friends.
We've played on the same club
team for years," Remlinger, the
daughter of Keith, and Linda
Remlinger, noted. "The 'fact
that she is going there, as well
as my sister, Ashley, next fall,
and a cousin helps.
"As well, a player on our
club team from Clyde is going
there and perhaps a fourth,
Brittany Insley from Arlington.
Plus, my grandma and grandpa
are 40 miles from the campus. I
wouldn't be doing this if not for
them."
Remlinger changed her
mind,' backing out of a verbal
commitment to the University
of' Findlay, to attend the
Division I junior college.
"I was all set for Findlay I
had played for the club team
there for three years and liked
the coach a lot but a friend of
mine told me about South
Florida. I e-mailed the coach
there (Kim Crawford); she was-
n't allowed to e-mail me
because of my verbal commit-
ment," Remlinger explained.
"They flew me down for a
visit and I was just, impressed


with everything. I felt very
comfortable with the coach; she
doesn't have an assistant, and
she's a younger woman. The
weather kind of makes it nice,
too."
With only two players
returning, for the team next fall,
Remlinger feels she has a
chance for playing time, though
'nothing was discussed.
"I know I have to work on
my passing. I have to get
stronger so I can hit harder,"
she,said. "It is Division I, so it
will-be a big jump in competi-
tion and ability."
It also helped that the college
has a business major, in which
the soon-to-be Kalida graduate
plans on majoring.
"I'm really excited and
relieved about making this
decision. It probably will be
tough to go so far away from
home at first but with my fami-
ly and friends there, it should
make things easier," she added.
In Remlinger's three varsity
seasons, the Ladycats com-
bined for a 58-17 mark, includ-
ing a state semifinal appearance
in 2004. for a unit that finished
26-1. She holds the Kalida
career marks in block-touches
(807), solo blocks (271), kills
(674) and aces (74).
.Her coach at Kalida, Jeremy
Stober, reckons that the signing
was a reward for the time
Remlinger spent in the gym.
"We ask a lot of our players
and Michele spent a lot of time
in the off-season working on
her game. It's nice to see her get
a reward for that work," he
began. "We expect her to do
some great things down there.
We've had her talents on varsi-
ty for three years and that
included a regional runner-up
and an appearance at state. We

On the field, the Red Devils
