Bears, feed on town garbage


By KEVIN J. SHUTr
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID In 10 days, Highway Park Estates
residents have reported three -incidents of bears roaming
their neighborhood.
"We know there's bears down there," Chad Allison, of the
Florida Fish.and Wildlife Conservation Commission said
Friday. "Histonrally and currently, this is prime black bear
habitat."
But, increased development and growing populations of
humans means fewer places for the bears to live.
Coupled with poor practices by the people whose homes
abut their natural habitat, scary if not dangerous encounters
can occur.
"All three of these reports were, 'bears in my garbage,'"
Allison said of the Lake Placid calls. "My response is
'Secure your trash.'"
Allison suggested storing waste cans in the garage or a
tool shed, or people can call FWC and ask them to fax plans
for a secure receptacle.
If it's not bears, it could be bobcats, fox, raccoons or coy-
otes.
"Anything will get into your trash," he said. "Florida has
amazing wildlife. But, Florida has, what, 1,000 people mov-
ing in every week?"
Allison said most displaced animals die, that they don't
pack up and relocate as do people.
Though the bears typically are not aggressive, Allison
said the mostly-nocturnal creatures should not be
approached or fed.
"They're pretty timid," Allison said.

The Florida black bear, like other wild animals, are being
driven from their natural habitat like the deer spotted along
U.S. 27 between Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center
and the Sebring Parkway. Three complaints of bears foraging
in garbage in the Highway Park Estates have logged in the
past 10 days.

Black bear fast facts
Home range: 50 square miles for.adult males and 10
square miles for adult females.

Habitat: They prefer thick swamps, forested areas with
dense understory vegetation, pine flatwoods and sand pine
scrub.

Getting



down to



brass



tacks

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Work continues on devel-
oping an interlocal agreement between the
county commission, the municipalities and
The School Board of Highlands County.
Tuesday afternoon Jim Polatty, develop-
ment services director for the county com-
mission, spent time discussing the issue
.with the school board
)n interlocal agreement is designed to
increase communnnication and coordinate
action between local governmental entities
especially regarding growth and the chal-
lenges gro\\ th brings.
To make sure, in other words, that an
area's leaders are talking to each other and
V.orking together toward a commoi:n oal.
Historica.ll,. growth simply happened
with little thought or planning as to impact
or consequences In ;ome cases, develop-
nlent \J a ,ilhi ed to oitstrip' resources or
infrastructure. in othei cases. governments
clinched poortl financed programs to deal
ith population growth, v.hich failed
when fundmin tell short.
Some Florida counties are struggling to
solve long festering problems of over-
'crowded roads or classrooms. Others face
significant:debt.
This is why a -component of the new- .
planning process, created b\ the state le-
islature, requires local gooernnients to
show how they v i 11 pay for what they pro-
pose. .
One revenue stream that communities,
are considering is to have some of the
costs of growth paid for by the growth
itself in the form of impact fees.
Impact fees, however, are narrow in
design.N I onn-, raised by them may only be
spent on 'infrastructure needed as a direct
result of population growth.
For example, if a school district has to
add classrooms to a school because of the
class size amendment, that cost is largely
on the district. But if classrooms need to be
added to a school bectiuse more children
have moved into the district, then impact
fees can be used.
It gets more complicated than that. In
order to ensure smIoith progress, two new
elements have been added to public plan-
ning concurrency and adopted level of
service. .
Concurrency is defined as the necessary
public facilities and services to maintain
the adopted level of service.
Those facilities -should, be developed at
the same time new housing is, so that when
families move into a new development, the
schools are open and ready, the roads are.
paved, and public utilities are in place.
Level of serx ice refers to the standards
set for that service.
For example, at the school board work-
shop Tuesday afternoon, members
engaged in a discussion regarding portable
classrooms.
As part of the interlocal agreement
process, the board will have to prepare an
inventory, reporting the permanent capaci-
ty of existing public school facilities as
measured by student stations (the actual
space in a room).
The sticking pqint regards the use of
portables as permanent classrooms.
The state allows portables to be counted
as permanent provided they have covered
walkways and certain other amenities
required by state statute and have been in
use four years or more.
But at least one member of the board,
Wendy Renfro, is dead set against allow-
ing portables to be counted as permanent.
No portables period, she said in response
to the proposed interlocal agreement,
which allows for the state standards.
Mike Averyt, director of business opera-
tions, said at the workshop that, "We don't

Amendment

made to move'

fresh fruit
LAKELAND An inter-
im rule amending require-
ments for the movement of
fresh fruit from Florida was
announced toda\ b\ the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
(USDA i Animal Plant
Health Inspection Sen ice.
The need for the interim rule
arose after the Jan.. 10
announcement that the eradi-
cation of citrus canker was
no longer possible in
Florida, leading to a new
science-based approach for
managing the disease.
This interim rule provides
the greatest level of certainty
to safeguard other citrus-
producing states from the
introduction of citrus canker,
while also allowing the con-
tinued utilization of
Florida's export markets.
If.citrus canker were
detected in another citrus-
producing state, according to
the USDA, this interim rule
provides a framework to,
establish an appropriate reg- .
ulator) response based on
the nature of the outbreak.
In addition, the interim rule
allows fresh fruit that would
not otherwise be eligible for
interstate movement to be
delivered to a port for imme-
diate, export if the shipment
meets the entry conditions of
the importing country.
The amended require-
ments became effective Aug.

SEBRING With the 2006-07 school year begin-
ning in less then two weeks, incoming seniors need to
remember this year is different from those in the past.
While school board policy has long held that to be
named a valedictorian or salutatorian in a graduating
class, a student must have attended the same high
school a minimum of five consecutive semesters by the
end of the first semester of his or her senior year. The
calculating of Grade Point Averages wasn't done until
the end of the third grading period in March.
This year, the Grade Point Averages also will be cal-
culated at the end of the first semester, so valedictori-
ans and salutatorians will be determined by December
- of course providing that the students maintain their
grades throughout the year.
This move, the school board believes, will equalize
opportunity and make the process of class ranking fair-
er.
"ElerNone has a first semester." school board mem-
ber Donna Howerton said. referring to the fact that,
some seniors have completed the more difficult core of
academic courses b\ the second semester, and take less'
demanding electives, or are off campus in work pro-


grams.
Here is how a GPA is calculated:
Every nine weeks, grades are issued numerically as


percentages. They are:
Outstanding progress
Above average progress
Average progress
Lowest acceptable Progrn
Failure
Incomplete
All incomplete grades
grades within 10 days.


A 90 to 100 percent
B 80 to 89 percent
C 70 to 79 percent
ess D 60 to 69 percent
F 0 to 59 percent
I O
will be ,changed to final


.. Each grade is assigned a number of qualitA points.
An A is worth four points, a B three points, i C two
points, a D is worth one point, and an F is a zero.
A student's GPA is calculated.lby adding, all of the
quality points earned and dividing by the number of
credits attempted.
For example, a student who took four courses,-get-
ting two A's, a B and a.C \ would earn a GPA of 3.25.
An additional .04 is added to a student's GPA for,
each honors, Dual Enrollment, and/or Advanced
Placement course successfully completed.
For instance in the example mentioned, if one A was


earned in a honors course, and the C was earned in a
dual enrollment course, .08 would be added to that stu-
dent's GPA increasing it to 3.33. That is the "weighted"
GPA.
Students taking Advanced placement courses have to
take a standardized exam which is administered nation-
ally.
The exams are scored one through five. A three is a
passing score, but the more demanding colleges and
universities typically require a passing score of four or
five in order to get course credit.
However, should a student earn a passing grade from
his. or her teacher, but not pass the standardized exam,
they would still get the .04 weight added to their GPA.
Mary;Hutchison, 10th grade guidance counselor at
Avon. Park High School, said Advanced Placement
classes were, "a win-win situation. They give students
a more rigorous curriculum, which gives them a taste of
college level work. And there is no risk, provided they
complete the course work satisfactorily, becauseeven if
they don't do \ell on the standardized exam at tie end
of the course it % ill not count against them. or affect
their GPA."
Advanced Placement classes are open to under class-
men as well as seniors.

Remember

When The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
. serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

victimization. However, as the
program has gained trust within
the community, victims not
only receive support personally
but they gain courage and
strength to participate in help-
ing the justice system work,
which in many cases initiates
the healing process. If victims
cannot recover mentally and
physically from the crime, it is
not uncommon for secondary
effects to surface such as bro-
ken families, lost jobs, and
financial instability.

With the age demographics as
they are, that puts nearly 52 per-

ing that victims know that help
is available, and consequently
the sheriff's office is seeing that
more victims are willing to seek
help to recover from the after-
math of the crime committed
against them. As victims of
crime gain strength, hope, and
realization that their rights will
be protected, criminals lose
ground and are less likely to re-
offend against that same person.
The grant comes from the
Department of Justice as a
result of the 1984 Victims of
Crime Act to the state of
Florida. The Florida Office of
the Attorney General, Division'
of Victims Services administers
the program and awarded
Highlands County $39,010 last
year and has increased the fund-
ing to $104,057 for fiscal year
2006/2007 as a result of the
sheriff's office request.

Barbers


Service and skill key elements


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING There are two basic ways to make a
living as a barber, own your own shop or work in one.
Barbers who work in other people's shops may
either work on commission, or rent a chair.
At the Sebring Square Barber Shop the barbers rent
their chairs. Each barber has claim to a particular
chair and is provided some storage space.
While they are, in a wa\. self-emplosed, they are
obligated to be sure there is another barber working at
that chair if they need to take off at a time they would
have been on duty I
Sebring Square has eight chairs. During the season
all eight chairs are manned, but in the slower month s
of summer, only six chairs are manned.
The group of men and women: who work there have
accumulated almost 300 years of experience com-
bined,
Most.of them come from families of barbers.
They all have a good.time at work.
For example. Earl Kranitz has been cutting hair
since 1957. He became a barber with the encourage-
ment of his father-in-law who was one.
Krantz learned his trade in Illinros bt cutting the
hair of street people who were encouraged to come to
the barber school. Laterhe had his, own shop in
Tampico.,
When long hair became popular in the mid-1960s,
business fell off, and Krantz had to broadefi his busi-
ness, becoming a photographer as a sideline;
Eight \ ears ago' when his wife for health reasons
had to mo e. to a warmer climate, the couple relocated
here, because they had visited the area and enjoy ed it
Being a barber is social work, in the sense that

person is outgoing as well as skillful."

"'The Air Force picks it up e\ery Monda.." lie said.
Then he \waited a beat as everyone wondered %\hat the

-"The, use it to build hair planes." Berry chuckled.
The Sebnng Square Barber Shop is open from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Fnda\. and from 8
a m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. It is at 170 Sebnng Square.

EDGE
Continued from 11A
It turns out we've been that
way a long time.
According to www.barber
pole.com, our most ancient
ancestors thought good and bad
spirits entered our body
through our hair. The only way
to get the bad spirits out was to
cut the hair. So from the earli-
est, pre-historic days those
people who tended hair were
considered special and highly
revered.
Given the early emphasis on
the power of barbers to help or
hurt the body and soul, it's not
too surprising that as the cen-
turies passed the profession of
barbering became intertwined
with early medicine, which
was itself born out of supersti-
tion.
During the early medieval
period, in the time known as
the dark ages, the clergy were
often the only ones with any :
education. As such, many had
become physician practitioners.
They were aided by barber
assistants.
In 1163, the Council of
Tours in France, prohibited the
clergy from continuing in that
role because it dealt with draw-
ing blood out of a body-and the
council considered that sacrile-
gious.
With the loss of the clergy,
the assistant barbers stepped in
and took over the task blood-
letting, one of the primary
treatments of illness at the
time. By 1450, barbers and
physicians shared the same
guild and professional group.
Blood letting, by the. way,
became the treatment of choice
because the ancient Greeks
thought the body was kept
'healthy by balancing four
humors blood, phlegm,
black bile arid yellow bile.
Blood was believed to be '
created by the liver. When peo-
ple overate, it was thought, the
liver would make too much


blood., which then hjd to be
drained off.
In fact, as late as 1799, when
George Washington had been
ailing with a throat infection
for some time, his doctor acci-
dentally bled him to death
while trying to cure him.
Barbers were considered so
important by the European
royal houses in the 15th and
16th centuries that they contin-
ued to be revered even as the
field of medicine slowly grew
apart, becoming more sttuc-
tured and based'in real science.
The father of modem sur-
gery, Ambrose Pare (1510-.
1590) began his career as a.


barber surgeon.
Henr) Vlii of England,
decreed that barbers be allowed
four crimninjal corpses a year so
they could Id practice dissection.
But by the end of the 18th,
century, medicine had firmly.
established its own sphere of
interest and barbers were rele-
gated to tending hair.
The traditional barber pole is
a holdover from that bloody
beginning. The white and red.
- sometimes White, red, and
blue '. sinppcd poles repre- ,
sent the bandages, blood andI
veins of blood letring.

RSVP asks for

more library

volunteers
,The Retired and Senior,
Volunteer Program, which is
sponsored by Nu-Hope Elder
Care Services Inc., works with
a number .of community part-
ners.
The Highlands County
library system is among the
group of RSVP's volunteer sta-
tions. Volunteers perform a
variety of functions that help
the libraries bring services to
residents of the county.
Currently, the three libraries
which are located in Avon Park,
Lake Placid and Sebring are in
need of a number of volunteers
to fill jobs. Primarily, volun-
teers are needed to organize
and maintain the libraries.
Each librarian has its own
focus for its volunteers and will
train them. Depending upon the
library, a volunteer may be
asked to shelve books, prepare
items for circulation, locate
items, clean, mend, rewind
tapes, empty book drops, etc.
If anyone is at least 55 years
old and has some spare time,
consider volunteering at one of
the libraries through the RSVP
program. Just contact Kathleen
Mills Montgomery at 382-
2134, ext. 315 or Nancy Kim
Graves at ext. 314 to sign up.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Modem day changes to a classic board game


Monopoly. In the days before
video games and the Internet, it
was the game. You could use up
an afternoon competing with
your family members for
becoming the king (or queen) of
the game.
I admit there were times I
would even play the game
against myself. I'd have a
"nice" player and a "mean"
player. It was many years ago,
so I don't remember which
player won more often. But it
was fun.
I knew some guys that got
extra money for the game.
They would write to Parker
Brothers, claiming they had lost
their Monopoly money. They
were sent more. In the end, they
would have huge stacks of the
colorful bills to peer over as
they played.
We have ,a couple of
Monopoly sets around, the
house here. There is the classic
game, with all the tokens and
cards and properties e\erNone is
familiar with.. We also have a
Star Wars version of the game,,
which should come as no sur-


Change is'

needed in office
Editor:
The letter of July 26 con-
cerning change is needed in the,
office of Highlands County
Animal Control by Mark
Griffin was so very true.
For years, residents of the
subdivision Sebring Acres in
Venus have complained to
Highlands Countl Animal
Control about a dog "hoarder"
keeping in excess of 35 dogs on
a one-acre lot. The owner lies
in her car and the mobile home
is inhabitable. The dogs run the
streets and howl, bark and defe-
cate everywhere.
This o%% ner has no electricity
and hauls -water in from the
Venus Clubhouse.-The stench,
of feces proliferates the air and
the complaints have gone unan-
swered.
Keith Albritton (Animal
Control director claims all the
dogs are licensed and %accinat-'
ed and that a local veterinarian,
can prove this. I sa\. prove that
Mr. Albritton. Prove to the
owners i hose property. values
have plummeted because you
allow "The Dog Lad\" to
remain) that these whining.
barking dogs are well cared for.
Yourinvestigation into these
'complaints is so mishandled
and misdirected. What about
Sour peace and quiet enjoyment
of our property? Animal
Control's failure to act has
taken this right a'\a\ from us to
enjoy our neighborhood.
Can one legally ha\e. let's
say for instance, 50 dogs on a
one-acre lot? Sounds like an,
ordinance is missing, to prevent.
this. Commissioners, are you
listening? Where, is the divid-
'ing line between running a ken-
nel and just hoarding?
In any other city, when a
"hoarder" is found who cannot
give the care for this quantity
of pets, the pets are taken and.
adopted out to new homes.
The owner maintains a P.O.
Box in Sebring and claims she
does not live on site in her pick'
up truck, but she does. You say
she has a receipt for a generator
to get water, but where is it and
why have .ou not satisfied the
fact that there is no running
water on this property? I guess
your investigation missed those
facts.
I sincerely hope that County
Administrator Carl Cool and
Commissioners (Bob) Bullard,
(Andrew) Jackson, (Barbara)
Stewart, (Edgar) Stokes and (C.
Guy) Maxcy keep Keith
Albritton in retirement and
bring in someone who can
clean up the messes in: the
Highlands County neighbor-
hoods and truly perform
"Animal Control."

One customer is

no more
Editor:
I am a stalwart defender of
free market capitalism and free
enterprise. I am also an enemy
of down-right greed, selfish-


prise to anyone LAUPA
who knows us. LAUR
And I have two
computer versions Laur
of the game one
on my personal dig-
ital assistant, and a
Star Wars one that has been
installed and uninstalled on var-
ious computers in the house.
The game just has that kind of
lasting interest for people.
Of course, the rules, of the
game can change depending on
who -plays. There's the "Free
Parking" rule, where fines and.
such are piled in the middle of
the board and awarded to the
lucky player who lands on the
Free Parking space. There's the
players loaning each other
money rule, or deals such as,
"I'll give you three free lands
on my railroads if you don't.
make me pay your rent." Of
course, if you play MonopolN
for blood, as I tend to do, you
tend to be stingy with such
deals.
I bring this to your attention
because apparent a change is
coming to the classic game. In

debit cards.


Britain, players
will no longer
have to keep track
of colorful play
money. Instead,
they will have I
am not kidding -


Apparently the. game will
include a hand-sized scanner
that players can swipe their
debit cards through. And this
version will not be restricted to
the English Hasbro, the
company that now owns
Monopoly, is considering the
same change for the American
version.
Part of me understands the
change. In real life, debit cards
have become the payment
method of choice for a lot of us.
I know I write very few checks
anymore thanks to my debit
card. Now that many fast food
places take plastic. there are
fewer places where it is cash or
nothing.
I -still carry cash, though not
that much. It's just hard to get
out of the habit of having the
green stuff in my purse.


I'm not sure how I feel about
Monopoly changing the mone-
tary system, though. I mean, it's
one thing to change the,names
of the properties ind maybe
some of the Community Chest
and Chance cards (how many of
you would really miss the
"You've won 2nd prize in a
beauty contest" card? Be hon-
est). But no paper money?
No colorful money to organ-
ize in front of you, part of it
tucked under the edge of the
board? You could figure out
your net worth fairly quickly.
Do you need to keep swiping
your debit card to figure out if
you have enough money to buy
Boardwalk? What if some child
loses the scanner? Don't think it
couldn't happen.
The geek in me finds the
debit card idea interesting. But
the Monopoly fan in me would
miss the paper. So I think I will
be old fashioned in this case.
Do I owe rent for that?

ket. I am also very much of the
opinion that people who hate,
people, or who just can't stand
people, or hiho just ha'e great
trouble relating to people.
shouldn't be :in jobs that
involve them directly\ -\ith cus-.
tomers. Remember 'the old'
'"Peanuts' phrase:,"I don't mind
people: .it's humans I can't-
stand." : .
S It would go better \\ith busi-
nesses if the\ took the time to,
place "work people" in areas
away from people and place
"people people" in areas of,.
precisely people. But % hen this
is not done, then it is the busi-
ness that suffers, alongside the
rest of the employees, for the
store's earnings is also their
earnings, right?
But I also despise businesses
that trick their customers, either
by deceit, or by withholding
vital information from the cus-
tomer. Sometimes this informa-
tion is not withheld, but it is
given in a plethora of minutia
wording so extensive, that it
would take an entire weekend
just to read and decipher.
So, several years back, here
in (a store) of Sebring, I began
purchasing their money orders.
Wow,, they only cost 49 cents.
What the store didn't tell you is
that if you lose the money
order, it then will cost you close
to $11 to retrieve, versus what it
costs at the USPS, some $2.50,
give or take. But, hey, that's OK
.. who loses a money order,
anyway?
But then something else hap-
pened: I purchased (a) store
credit card. Great, since I am
fairly well disciplined with
cards, -this should 'work out
well.
Not so. Actually, it worked
out horrendously! Because my
monthly 'payment on the card
was late a few hours, a day or


two, I %as hit with a $25 penal-
ty. I don't mind a penalty, but...
25 bucks worth? That hit me
hard. I then returned the card.
x\ ith a note that said: "you will
not do this to me again."
But I forgae Ithe store) ...
until it did it one more time.
iThe last time. as far as l-ni con-
cerned. 'i ith this particular,
Sebnng store. Up until then, the
store had, always cashed my
miserable $190 '\eekl) j.ob
check when-I purchased some-
thing at the store. This time
around, though. the cashier
charged me $3 for the service.
I countered .by referring to
the past procedure of not charg-
ing me. so the cashier called the
floor assistant manager. The
floor manager says they don't.
anymore, so I requested my
check back and asked to disre-
gard my request. This floor
assistant went away for a few
minutes, then returned, with a
sour look on. her face, the kind
of look that speaks volumes,
such as ... if you don't like it,
eat it."
She says to me that the $3
check-cashing fee cannot be
altered, since it was already "in
the computer." I see, said the
wise man.
People like this poor public
relations woman, this "work
person,"' alongside' her boss:
'"work person," shouldn't be
involved ith people, as I said
at the beginning. In other
words, hey -, what's three
bucks, huh?
So, to make a long story
longer, the store, via these two
people-despising employees
(whatever their reason for
despising, but their face surely
is not one of charity, believe
you me), got my measly $3.
And the store lost, on a yearly
basis, some $250 constant and
consistent, good ol' American
money. It has been two years


no%\ since that occurrence.
The stupidity of employees
\\ho cannot handle relations to
the benefit of their business,
not to mention just plain com-
mon courtesy to others, makes
them eat their hearts out. They
are self-destructive beings.
S\hose finite souls are the end
of the stick when it comes to
human civility and respect.
Thus, for the sake of "ripping
off" this "vile customer" of his
one-time $3, the store has
deprived itself and its corps of
employees, of $250, yearly.
Someone needs to read Dale
Carnegie's "How to win friends
and influence people."
I trust this short essay will
help our business community
to better understand the impli-
cations of pure selfish proceed-
ings and lack of common cour-
tesy in people-dealing and help
our younger generation of
entrepreneurs to become suc-
cessful not at despising cus-
tomers but in being servants
to the community they so much
.depend on for their livelihood.

Editor:
Lots of people- have helped

John Clark at A.G. Edwards.
He has helped me with so many
things. He and Linda (who also

Being among fans and their football fantasies


We are approaching my
favorite time of year, football
season. I love football, particu-
larly college and professional
football. I have been a
Washington Redskins fan for as
long as I can remember, and the
Colts have always run a very
.close second.
I tried to get into the Ravens
for a season, but to me "A
Brown by any other name is
still a Brown." Every time I
donned that purple jersey, I felt
like I was wearing a sign that
read, "Kick me. I.am an idiot."
Besides, the Ravens jersey has
'GRBAC' on the back, so I
probably earned some punish-
ment just for that. I feel much
more at home in my burgundy
and gold.
I loathe the Dallas Cowboys.
Always have, and always will.
I. greatly admire Roger
Staubach as an individual, but
when he was the Cowboy's
quarterback, I wanted him hit
hard and on the bench. Besides
Tom Landry, who was a good
person and good coach, albeit a
Cowboy's coach, I universally
dislike all ex-Cowboys and all
future Cowboys.
Since the Carolina Panthers
joined the league, I root hard for
the Colts (the real Baltimore
team, regardless of where they
are located), Redskins and
Panthers. I have tried to get into
the Falcons, especially since
they picked up Michael Vick,
who is a Virginia Tech product.
The problem is, Vick and .the
Falcons remind me too much of
the Sampson/Lamp/Raker-era
UVA basketball team. All prom-
ise and potential, and no timsh.
I just cannot handle that much
disappointment again


As far as college football
goes, I like University of
Virginia and usually Virginia
Tech (too many thugs on the
team lately). I dislike Maryland.
I like Brighm Young University
and Utah, but not Utah State,
Wyoming and Air Force. I like
Louisiana State University,
University of Louisiana at
Monroe and University of
Louisiana at Lafayette, but dis-
like Arkansas and Auburn. I like
Florida, but not Florida State
(no death threats, now). I like
University of Richmond (yes,
they have a football team), -but
not the College of William &
Mary. I like Arizona State,
Tulsa and Arizona, but not Penn
State and Syracuse. I like
Stanford, University of
California at Los Angeles and
Cal, but not University of
Southern California or any of
the Big Ten teams or Big 12. I
like Tennessee, Southern Miss
and Vanderbilt.
I In other words, when it
comes to football, I am an opin-
ionated, nearly, fanatical man.
Someday, maybe I will get help
for my problem.
Several years ago, a few
friends and' I got into Fantasy
Football. I do not remember
why exactly, but we quickly
became. hooked. Suddenly, we
found ourselves interested in all
of the games, not just the ones
that involved our favorite
teams. It has greatly heightened
our enjoyment of the sport.
This past season, we had 12
teams in 'the North and South
league. Heavy on newspaper
executives, (three publishers,
one circulation director, one
general manager, a sales man-
ager and a major accounts rep-


resentative), the
league also includes AMA
two architects, a
managing under-
writer for a major
finance corporation,
a "business consult-
ant" (give me some
money to come, and &
more to leave), two
teenagers and a man CHIP'S
handicapped with
severe cerebral palsy. Mosby.
They come from Wiggir
New York (north), -
Pennsylvania
(north), Maryland
(north), Virginia (sduth ... yee
haw!), North Carolina (south)
and Florida (really south).. We
have team names like the
Ragin' Rebels, Qtastics, Florida
Huskies, Diggle's Coterie (I
don't know either, so don't ask),
Wiggskins, Frednecks, the
Maulers, Sherman's Troops
(why not just throw dirt in-my
face?) and the Surfer Dudes, to
name a few. We are highly com-
petitive and are locked in an
endless struggle to out think
and out coach the other "team
managers" or "owners."
Last year, I had to play my
son-in-law one week to take
first place in the regular season,
and then my son the next week
to hold first. Trash talk can get
pretty personal, but not offen-
sive. Allow me, to share a few
actual quotes from last season:
From me to my son: "Son, I
love you, but this is football and
I must crush you like an ant."
From my son to me (after he
beat me in the championship):
"Ah, so the student becomes the.
teacher. Really, you played a.
good game ... just not good
enough."


L.
rt


From me to my
new son-in-law:
"Kevin, welcome to
the family. Please for-
give me for the beat-
ing you are about to
receive."
From my son-in-
law to me: "I prefer to
let my players do my
SHOT speaking for me.
Good luck. You will
. 'Chip' need it."
on Jr. From the Winter
-" Haven publisher to
his circulation direc-
tor: "Son, I hope you
realize I have to beat you like a
red-headed stepchild."
From the circulation director
to the publisher: "In all due
respect, those are big words
coming from someone in last
place. Please don't fire me for
beating you, which is virtually
guaranteed."
From the consultant to every-.
one else: "I have a great new
idea which would enable each
of you to increase your net
worth ..." (by the way, he is no
longer in the league).,
Most interesting was this
exchange between a newspaper
general manager and one of his
sons.
From the dad. "For some rea-
son you feel the need to hold
onto three tight ends when you
can only play one per week. I
am in dire need of a tight end.
Why do you continue to ignore
my trade offers ?"
From the son: "Because I
don't need your stinking second
string quarterback (Mark
Brunell).""
From the dad: "How about
Derrick. Mason and Nate
Burleson? I'll trade both of


them to you f6r Chris Cooley."
From the son: "Keep dream-
ing, dad."
I From the dad: "You have
three tight ends! This is a good
deal. Why not?"
From the son: "Because I
don't need them. Besides, they
suck."
From the dad: "I see, but you
do need to use my car, right?"
From the son: "A few more
weeks of you losing and you'll
offer to buy me a car."
From the dad: "You're really
funny. I think a little less TV
and Playstation 2 is in order.'
Maybe your grades would
improve."
From the son: "I'm telling
mom you're trying to cheat
me!"
I am telling you, this, stuff
gets into your blood. You can
feel the pressures and frustra-
tions of the game. You ache
when your players are injured.
Two seasons ago, I had
Peyton Manning as my starting
quarterback and Marvin
Harrison as one of my
receivers. That was the record
setting year for Manning, so I
had a number 6+6 scores (six
points for a touchdown by
Manning, six points for a touch-
down by Harrison). I killed
everyone in the regular season,
but lost in the championship
when Maiining tanked in New
England (I knew I was in trou-
ble when they showed him
looking over the New England
defensive line with "deer
caught in the headlights" eyes).
Last season, they made sure I
did not get Manning and I
ended up with Carson Palmer.
He had the hot hand all year and
took me to the regular season


championship and the Super
Bowl, before going down early
in the game, out for the remain-
der of the season with torn liga-
ments in his knee. I lost to my
son and his Wiggskins.
We use Yahoo! Sports for our
fantasy league because they
have great stats and record
keeping, and more importantly,
it costs nothing. Check it out.
We have two slots available
in the league this year. One guy
was ousted for trying to sell us
his services (using the league
site to conduct business is a
strict no-no). The other ran with
his tail between his legs
because he couldn't swim with
the big boys.
We are looking for more can-
non fodder. Oops! I mean, we
are looking for a few people to
join our league this year. If
you're interested, write to me
and tell me why we should
admit you.
Are you ready for some foot-
ball?!?

PAUSE AND CONSIDER


Jan Merop

'Maintenance
agreement
Recently, our printer/scan-
ner/copier died. I hated to
spend the money to replace
it; but, was pleasantly sur-
prised by the significant
drop in price since our last
purchase several years ago.
A maintenance agreement
was offered to protect. us .
against the inevitable break-
down of the machine. But
the lower cost of the copier
seemed to negate the need;
though on other purchases
the judgment call may be
the opposite.
' It's a given that our pos-
sessions will need mainte-
nance. The agreement has us
pay up..front for what may
or may not happen later.
Like the old saying, "You
;can pay me now or N ou can
pay me later.",
Possessions are not the
only things that require
maintenance. So do our bod-
les. '
If w ,don't maintain a .
level of care in what we
feed it; how we exercise it; ,
and, how\ we groom it, its
inevitable breakdown w ill
come a lot sooner. Though
the aging process continues.
L we can live a more optimal-
ly healthy lifestyle with
proper nutrinon, exercise
and attitudes.
The same is true for our
spiritual health.
Acknowledging God in
our lives and coming into
..relationship with him
through faith in Christ does-
n't mean we can become
"couch potatoes" spiritually.
SMaintenance is necessary.
In fact. the tery. thing that
initiated that relationship -
a prayer to Almighty God -
is the tool privilege, really
that maintains a deep and
satisfy ing relationship with
him.
Such maintenance is like
the tune-up on a car: the
upkeep of a home: or the
deep breathing of a bod ,
that's exercising. The oppo-
site means the car rattles and
breaks do%\ n faster: the
house sho%\s signs of neg-
lect: and shallow breaths of
existence replace exuberant
living.
Trying to lite strong spin-
tually \\lthout prayer is like.
trying to live physically
w without breathing. What is it
about praNer that keeps us
spiritually strong?
Liken it to a climb in the
Rockies. .The air is thinner
there and one must abcli-
mate and d rink plenty of
water to make the climb.
But, the air is also purer,.
sweeter and more in\ igorat-
ing.
So it is when we ascend
to God inpra er. We.come.,
into his holy. pure presence.
We drink freely .of the .
Living Water: We know the
sweetness of communion
with the One who created
and redeemed us by his
grace. And we leave there
invigorated -- knowing in
Shimwe can do all things.
"Prav continually.'" as
seen in 1 Thessalonians 5:
17, NIV.. .: ,
In other wqrds, be in the
habit of calling on the Lord
an attitude of a thankful
heart that is continually .
mindful of his presence.
This spiritual maintenance
agreement guarantees the
peace of God that passes
understanding. It's one we
can't afford to be without.
Selah.

* Fitness. Ever itry it?
It requires conninntment, consistency
and some creativity to achieve lasting
resiilts loving the training as much as
the benefits. Couples who exercise their-
souls can't peer inside and watch the
process. But their marriages reflect a
more confident. loving posture.
The first Sunday of each month,. the
News-Sun itiill feature a series of true
stories compiled bhr correspondent Jan
Merop. They're designed to encourage
you to stretch,'tighten and tone the soul
of your marriage. Ready? It's workout
time!

"Never have Ibeen in such a fulfilling
job," Elaine told Peter (a: fact he was
happy about for .his wife).
However. as Peter's health continued
to detenorate. Elaine knew she may be
trying to juggle too many things: job,'
care giving, doctor appointments and
household responsibilities. So, she
talked with her boss and he advised her
that she would know when the time was
right to take a leave of absence.
When calls from home to the office
increased, Elaine knew the time had
come. Eventually, however, the leave of


absence turned into
being home full-time.
Peter's needs
increased and Elaine
stepped into life at
home enjoying the
freedom from outside
responsibilities.
Peter suspected his
time was short. He
was not one to live in
denial and was pre-
pared for God to call him home. He had.
settled, his standing with God many
years before. So, that'part :of his house
was in order.'
'He also cared deeply about the wife
he loved and wanted to leave his earthly
house in order, too. But, Elaine resisted.
"I can't get enthusiastic about doing
such a chore," she cried.
But he, remained insistent and she
forced herself to follow his leading..He
directed her in the tedious task of.getting
important papers organized and put into
a folder. She dreaded digging through all
those military papers. But, she -also
needed to know who to call in the mili-
tary when he passed away. They had to
update their wills. He even instructed her


to pre-plan both their
funerals and write
their obituaries.
"Peter was %ery
concerned about my
well-being after he
would pass."
He wanted to be
sure there %was provi-
sion for her once he
was gone. He thought


ahead about those
things so that everything would be well
for her. Today Elaine thanks God that
her husband showed his love for her in
such a ay. .
"It saved nie' so much stress.' "He
planned ahead because he knew that it
would be stressful, even though at the
imed it was a'lotof work to ,put it all
together.:",, '
When he died. she knew where every-
thing was and, in her grief and numb-
ness, wasn't required to take care of
details and make decisions. That had
been done already. .
By cooperating with her husband in
an unpleasant task, she gave him a gift.
Peace of mind for a caring protector.

Check out best sellers online at library


The New York Times Sunday
Book Review Best Sellers list is
posted weekly at Sebring
Library and available on your
home or library computer at
www.nytimes.com/pages/books/
review. The librarians of our
Heartland Library Cooperative
usually have ordered these best
sellers and they are available
for checkout or reserving.
Check the area of Recent
Releases at your library to see
what's on the shelf, but realize
that most best sellers won't be
on the shelf; they'll be in some-
one's hands: Reserving a book
using the online catalog
involves having your card and
your password. Simply search
for the book, the author, or the
subject, click on the line of
information you want, put in
your card number (no spaces),,


and your password and place
your reserve to come to the
library of your choice. What's
so great about the Polaris sys-
tem is that you can reserve a
book in Avon Park, pick it up in
Sebring, and return it in
Okeechobee on your way to the
coast.
Some books don't make it to
the top 15 Fiction/Nonfiction
lists, but the reviews are good
enough to be on the Editors'
Choice area. Recent books
making it here and also into
your libraries are: "Alentejo
Blue,'" the second novel, of
Monica Ali; "Revolutionary
Characters: What Made the
Founders Different" by Gordon
S. Wood; "The Toughest Show.
on Earth; My Rise and Reign at
the Metropolitan Opera," by
Joseph Volpe; "The Bronfmans:


The Rise and Fall of
the House of
Seagram," telling how
the Canadian liquor
dynasty built a fortune
from Prohibition and
squandered it in
Hollywood; and "Big ,
Coal: The Dirty Secret
Behind America's
Energy Future," with LIBRA
Jeff Goodell critiquing
the consequences of C
America's surprising He
reliance on coal.
Whether you are a
devoted mystery reader, need-
ing Large Print, a history lover,
a listener of rock or .highbrow
music CDs, a weekly DVD
browser, or into audiobooks,
your- libraries will have new
materials for you to take home.

Have you
watched "20/20"
enough to recog-
nize anchor John
Stossel? Enjoy an
evening with him
as you read "Myths,
Lies, and


Downright Stupidity," his ques-
tioning of conventional wis-
dom. Another anchor/host, Tim
Russert, of "Meet the Press" has
written "Wisdom of Our
Fathers," containing readers'
letters about their fathers,
received after people read Tim's


first book, "Big Russ and Me."
What's the timeworn state-
ment money makes money?
So fame also can translate into
money, as seen in the new book
"Dispatches From the Edge,"
by CNN correspondent
Anderson Cooper who has cov-
ered such catastrophes as
Hurricane Katfina,. and the
tsunami in Sri Lanka. Having
also been one of the many
reporters covering the, war in
Iraq, Cooper's book pretty
much describes the trials and
troubles of reporters working in
dangerous places on our 'big
blue marble.
No flash in the pan, three
nonfiction titles have been on
the NYT Best Sellers list for
over 63 Weeks:
"Freakonomics," "The World is
Flat" and "Blink." The fiction


side of the Best Sellers list is
much more volatile, with titles
seldom staying in the top 15 for
more than eight weeks. Fiction
writers with list longevity
include John Sandford's "Dead
Watch," James Patterson's
"Beach Road" and Patricia
Cornwell's "At Risk." You'll
find a shelf or more in your
library dedicated to .each of
these best selling authors.

What to look for when buying new plants


This is the time of year when

Soil: A


vital natural resource


Soil is a vital natural
resource. Soil is the resource
that most terrestrial life depends
on directly or indirectly for sur-
vival. Just think, if it weren't for
soil, agriculture our main
food source would not exist.
The study, of soils is called
pedology. It is derived from the
Greek words pedon and logos,
meaning soil and reason.
However, there is a tendency to
simply use the term soil sci-
ence.
Soil .formation is influenced
by many factors that are classi-
fied into five major categories:
The type of parent (source)
material, the climate under
which the soil components have
existed since accumulation, the
plant and animal life in and on
the soil, the relief of the land,
and the length of time the other
factors have interacted.
The five soil-forming factors


are interdependent. Soil forma-
tion begins with the degradation
of the parent material. The par-
ent material, or bedrock, is
unconsolidated, chemically
weathered mineral, rock, or
organic matter. Precipitation,
temperature, humidity,_ and
wind are the climactic forces
that act on the parent material to
form soil. The relief of the land
greatly influefices how wind
and water act upon parent mate-
rial components as well as the
types of plants and animals that
inhabit the area.. Animals,
insects, bacteria, and fungi and
other plants furnish organic
matter. Differences in the
amount of organic matter, numitri-
ents, structure, and porosity of
soil are caused by plant and ani-
mal actions.
Time is an important factor in
soil formation. The ph sical
and chemical changes brought

Natalie Rosier receives


Black Belt Certification


FORT LAUDERDALE Natalie Walker
Rosier's success in attaining the Black Belt
Certification was announced recently by Keith
Stanback. director of Southern & Comms Area-
Sun Sert ices Americas.
Passing the Sun Sigma Black, Belt
Certification Exam is very difficult and many
individuals have been unable to, pass it. The
Black Belt Certification Rosier earned is the
highest grade level attainable in Sun Services.
The company is a billing service primarily
throughout North and South America and other
countries.
"Rosier worked very hard to earn this certifi-
cation. She studied statistics books; took online
courses, and actually sacrificed many of her
nights and weekends, so it would not interrupt
her day job. This accomplishment is added to a
long li,,st of achievements for Natalie and we are
very fortunate to have her as a ke\ member of our
team," Stanback added.
Rosier has been with Sun Microsystems. Sun
Services since Februars 1998. In 2004,. she
achieved Sun Sigma Greenbelt Cerification. In
December of 2004. she w as promoted into the
position of Sun Ser'ices Southern Area Black
Belt. Her project work leading to Black Belt
Certification include the follow ing:
A project focused on reducing the days to
bill, by instituting a simplified process by which
engineers submit T&MN. The existing paper
process %'as replaced b\ the electronic process.
The net result %%as reduced cycle time from 109
days to under 10 da.s. Primary project benefits
came from reduction in "no bills-too old." No
bills-too old are cases which were simply not
being billed, because the paperwork did not make
it through the existing process in time to be con-
sidered billable/collectible. The numerous delays
associated %with the hard copy'paper process %was
resulting in lost revenue. Project Benefits from
one year tracking were $4,039.308.
Another project was focused on developing
a T&M process for Sun's Top Account
Customers Many Top Accounts Customers had
various contractual agreements in place which
prohibited them from falling into the general
T&M process, and prohibited them from utilizing
the ne Iyv formed paperless process. Pnmar:,
project benefits were based on reducing T&NI
related credit memos on top accounts. The solu-
tion vhich was implemented included changes to
the invoices w' which are sent to our customers to
provide more detail. Additional changes included
a process flow. which allowed the top accounts to
utilize both the paperless process and the pro-
gram .due to. existing customer demand for
reversed.loop. Project Benefits from credit reduc-
tions still being tracked $450.7S2.


Natalie walker Rosier
Rosier also arranged electronic intra-country
conferences and tutoring sessions for Sun
Services, %which omitted former lodging and trav-
el expenses, as %%ell as time outside of the United
States.
Rosier pre\ iously held the position of Services
Account Manager at Sun prior to taking on the
Black Belt role. In addition to her Sun Sigma
Black Belt certification, she holds a bachelor of
science in computer science, from which she
graduated summa cum laude, and an master's in
business administration degree.
Rosier, the daughter of Ted and Vera Carson
Walker. gre,' up in Sebring. Her deceased grand-
mother was the owner, operator of Velda's
Golden Villas. Her grandfather. George Carson,
spent many years as a distributor for Tom's
Peanuts in the Sebring area. He is retired and still

History Lesson

5 Years Ago
August 5. 2001: Sebring's
Team Florida was knocked
into the loser's bracket of
the Dixie Boys 14-year-old
World Series when they fell
to South Carolina 12-6 in
Sulphur, La. Sebring found
itself in an 8-0 hole before
scoring four runs in the
bottom of the second
inning. Kiko Vazquez led
off the bottom of the third
inning with a solo home
run to left field to cut the
deficit to 8-5 and bring in
reliever Cameron Lewis for
South Carolina, but the
pitching change didn't
work to Sebring's favor as
Lewis scattered one run
and two hits over four
innings to.hold off Sebring
and get the victory.

15 Years Ago
August 7, 1991: Tim
Fanning smacked a three-
run double with two outs
in the top of the eighth
inning to propel Team
Alabama into the semifi-
nals, edging past
Highlands County 5-4 in
the Dixie Majors World
Series at Firemen's Field.
The game was tied 1-1
after seven innings, send-
ing the contest into extra
innings. The 'Bama bunch
rallied for four runs on,
doubles by Ray Henderson
and Fanning in the top ol
the eighth. Highlands '
County made the game
even more exciting in the
S bottom of the eighth. Jady
Hill led off the frame with a
walk, barren Lemler
reached on an error by
winning pitcher Jeff Henry
and Cruiser Crews singled
to load the bases. Raphael.
Armien walked in a run and
SteveMVloore, who finished
the tournament batting 5-
for-10, drilled a RBI single.

Lake Placid's Coleman hoping to be hood ornament


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKE PLACID Barb Coleman is
hoping the whole world will get a chance
to see her face. Or at least, the whole
NASC R world.
Coleman, 37, has been named one of 50
finalists in the Goody's Powder-sponsored
contest to be named the Mayor of Goody's
Country. .
The winner will enjoy the once-in-a-
lifetime experience of having their face
painted on Tonm Stev ari's No. S Dale
Earnhardt Inc Busch Series car and an all-
expense-paid trip for two to cheer on the
car in Charlotte at the NASCAR Busch
race on Oct. 13.
There's' also the chance to attend a \ IP
press conference etenrt \ ith Ton\ Ste"vart


at- the Talladega Superspeedway during
the weekend, of Oct. 6-8.
And Stewart is the reason Coleman
entered the contest, which required
entrants. to write an essay about the
headache remriedy.
"He's my mar." Colenman said of
Stewart, adding that she probably \ xould-
n't have entered the contest if any other
driver had been involved. -
Coleman said she's not concerned about
her face being on the hood of a race car.
unless that race car gets wrecked. that is.
"Are \ou kidding ne? I'd be ecstauc."
she said when asked ho'. it %would feel to
\win.

Tour de France

title in jeopardy

By JEROME PUGMIRE
Associated Press'
PARIS Flohd Landis was
fired by his team and the Tour
de France no longer considered
him its champion Saturday
after his second doping sample
tested postume for higher-than-
allowable levels of testos-
terone
The samples contained syn-
thetic testosterone. indicating
that it came from an outside
source.
"T ha\e received a te\t mes-
sage from ChatenaN-Mlalabr-\
lab that indicates the *B' sam-
ple of Flohd Landis' urine con-
firms testosterone v.js taken in
an e\ogenous wa\." Pierre
BordrN. wtho heads the French
anti-doping council, told The
Assoc iated Press shortly, after
the "B" saniple results e\ere
released.
Lab head Jacques De
Ceamrriz said the isotope test-
ing procedure \\as "foolproof."
"No error is possible in iso-
topic readings." he told the AP.
Landis had claimed the
testosterone as "natural and..
produced bt in', o',n rorgan-
ism." and once again main-
rained his innocence
"I have ne\er taken an\
banned substance, including
testosterone," he said in a state-
ment. "I was the strongest man
at the Tour de France, and that
is why I am the champion
"1 ill tght these charges
with the same determination
and intensuli that I bring to my
traninL and racing. It is noim
mi goal to clear my name and
restore v. hat I worked so hard
to achieve."
The Swiss-ba.ied team
Phonak immediately\ severed
ties with Landis, and the LiCI
said it \o uld ask USA Cycling
to open disciplinary proceed-,
ings against him. :
"Landis will be dismissed
\ without notice for \iolatine the
team's internal Code of
Ethics." Phonak said in a state-
ment. "Landis will continue to
have legal options to contest
the findings. However. this %\Ill
be his personal affair, and the,
Phonak team w ill no longer be
in olked in that." .
Tour de France director
Christian Piudhomme said
Landis no longer was consid-
ered champion, but the decision
to strp inm of his title-rests
uith the International Cycling
Linion.
"It goes without saying that
for us Floyd Landis is no
longer the w. inner of the 2006
Tour de France," Prudhomme
told the AP ina telephone inter-

Year-round practices could lead to burnout for coaches, athletes


The state of Florida has always been
at the forefront of high school athletics
Look at any Division I football roster
from Montana to Maine and you're
bound to see a few former Floridian
preps. This hotbed of college recruiting
has churned out baseball, football and
basketball talent like few states in. the
union.
The recent baseball draft is an exam-
ple of the bounty of top-tier athletes we
produce here in the Sunshine State.
The region offers perpetual playing
conditions thanks to the weather we
enjoy and the wealth of quality pro-
grams scattered across the state.
Looking to stay on the cutting edge of
the national scene, 'the Florida High
School Athletic Association has made it
possible, starting this month, for coach-


es to have year-round
coaching access to: their
players.
The rule change has
sparked some criticism
from parents and pun-
dits v, ho fear doach and
player "'burnout" and
the temptation for ath-
letes to confine their
focus to one sport
Where players previ- JOCK
ously -%ere lin-ited to
playing sports accord- Marcu
ing to the season, now
they could potentially zero in on one
sport in multi-season leagues. One of
the concerns is that those athletes who
have chosen to concentrate on one sport
would have an experiential advantage

""


over those who have
distributed their talents.
Avon Park football'
coach and 27-year
coaching veteran
Earnest Perkins knows
.about the potential for
"'burnout" and how the
demanding football
schedule can take over
.ALES Can instructor's life.
ALES "When I was
-- younger, I was
Wilkins obsessed. I would leave
-- home at about five in
the morning and.get home at around
11:30 at night. My wife would ask me,
'Why don't you take a break?' Football
practice would end at 5:30 and after the
coaches and I would have our meeting,'


I would still be up in the office watch-
ing film, like that was going to make
the difference," said a chuckling
Perkins. "We'd still go 6-4."
The rule change will most likely
have a bigger impact on basketball and
baseball programs as opposed to the
football calendar, which is already vir-
tually year-round. The way the rule was
written previously, coaches were per-
mitted to coach their athletes as long as
the team was composed of less than 50
percent players from that particular
school. This brought about accusations
of recruiting when players would trans-
fer schools to reunite with off-season
teams.

S -* I'm still waiting.
- Thinking that maybe someone a little
closer might be more helpful, I called the
- FWC Lakeland office. Again, a very pleas-
- ant female voice listened to my request.
--- She asked a couple of questions and told
- me of a Web site. When I infonned her
- that it hadn't been of much help. she sug-
gested she %would have someone call me. I
-- am hoping it is someone who is well..
informed about the state's record large-
mouth bass files.
I'm still waiting.
I know there have been a lot of big bass.
caught in central Florida's lakes. Some of
them had to be monstrous. Frustrated, I
turned to searching outdoor magazines.
Florida Game & Fish was no help and the


W Having caught several large bass from
Highlands County lakes in the last few'
years but none for the record book has just
whetted my curiosity about record bass
catches in Florida. Does Florida keep a
record of the largest bass taken from
Florida waters?
I attempted to find that information on
Florida's Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Web site. To my dismay, I
found no real listing of the record class
largemouth bass. There was a list of
"Record Fishes," which contained only
two entries for largemouth'bass..
C'mon now, we are supposedly the bass
capitol of the world.
Not satisfied with the results I got from
the Web site, I called
the FWC office in
Tallahassee. A very
friendly voice
answered and advised
me that the informa-
tion I was seeking was
on the Web site and
proceeded to tell me,
how to find it. She,
OUTDOORS being very helpful, got
the Web site up on her
Lloyd Jones computer. Turned out
- it was the same
"Record Fishes" info.
I thanked her kindly as she promised to
have a more knowledgeable person call
- me.


Florida Fishing Regulations brochure has
nothing on record bass.
A final effort on the Internet at
espn.com/bass disclosed a listing of "the
largest of the largemouths." Out of 25
entries, there were 21 from California, one
from Georgia, one from Japan and two
from Florida. Like I said before, c'mon
man, we are supposedly the bass capitol of
the world.
The two from Florida were Riley Witt
with a 19-pounder taken from Lake Tarpon
on June 26, 1961 and Fritz Fnebel. who'
caught.a20.13-pounder from Big Fish
Lake on May 19. 1923. According to mN
information, Fritz Friebel's catch was
never certified.
There are some huge bass still roaming
around in our.lakes here in central Florida.
So why is it every time I hear about some-
one catching a near record bass, it is
always in California? I guess it's because
Florida anglers are not such braggarts.
One of the latest big bass reports came.
from California. It was a 19-pound, 11-


ounce monster largemouth taken by
'George Coniglio on March 31 while fish-
ing on Lake Mission Viejo, a private lake
open only to those who live in the commu-
nity.
Just a few years ago, George caught a
16-pound, 10-ounce bass. from this same
128-acre lake. His latest catch was taken
on a white jig with a black pork frog trail-
er.
After weighing, measuring and filming
his prize catch, Coniglio took the fish back
to \ here he caught her and released her to
spawn again and maybe someone will
catch her again later. Hopefully, she will
be a little larger and lot heavier.
Surely, Florida has some record-break-
ing bass swimming around in these beauti-
ful lakes. If you are lucky enough to catch
a real lunker, I'll be waiting to hear about
it while 'm still waiting to hear from the
FWC.

TALES
.Continued from ID ,
talking to coaches around the
state, is that we may not do
anything during the summer,"
said Sebring baseball coach
Hoppv. Rewis. The FHSAA has
no restrictions on the summer
season, which is why Rewis
.was able to lead his group to
the Dixie Pre-Majors World
Series in Thomasville, Ala. this
past week.. .
-'"Once school starts back up,
we could ha\ e a shortened fall
season. You know where (the
players) are and i4's a little eas-
ier (to keep track of them).
We'll lose some of them to
football, but you lose some of
them to vacation anyway in the
sunimer."


Currently, the only require-
ment for offseason high school
teams is that the leagues or
tournaments must be run by an
outside agency\ such as Dixie.
For Florida coaches, the
ideal goal will remain
unchanged: produce quality
student/athletes who are read)
for the real worldd while main-
taining compete ite excellence.
" "When I \\ s a younger
coach, I was very possessive -
lot m\n program. As I'\e
become an older coach. I've
ala\\s encouraged these
young men to pla\ another
.sport," said Perkins. "They
leant to miss football and it
makes a well-rounded athlete."
