Craig Sutter is retiring as the "Ne%%s-Sun" p-oduction manager and %ill be taking to the road as a truck driver. He goes from driving school (right) to checking the newspaper as
it comes off the press. Joe Abandola started last week as Sutler's replacement. Sutter still finds time to stop in and make sure all is running well.


Longest running 'News-Sun' employee hits the open road


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Back then. he was a
wei-behind-the-ears 20-3 ear-old press
operator.
Craig Sutter survived eight publishers
and countless 'editors, reporters and
advertising representatives during his
33-1/2 years with the News-Sun.
SHe first came to the paper when it was
the Scbring News in 1972. as a six-week
replacement, filling in for the paper's
sole pressman.
Sutter, who is retiring as the News-
Sun's production director as of Friday,
came down from the Ocala Star Banner.
A month after helping out here. Sutter


was offered the That 's the
job. The Sebring -
News presstran
for hom he filled in had joined the

"What the hell, I'm at the bottom of
the. ladder in Ocala," Sutter said, recall-
ing his decision to seize upon the
advancement opportunity he saw here.
"I'm up for it."
Leaving the News-Sun for a truck-
driving career. Sutter managed nine peo-
ple four piessmen and t1ic people in
pre-press, who are responsible for build-
ing the advertisements and dummy
sheets that become the newspaper.
Sutter, who said he'd have been a

got into the business through a friend's
father, a pressman in Ocala who suggest-
ed that Sutter apply for a vacancy.
Recalling ,.hat a friend had once told
him, Sutter likened the newspaper busi-
ness to driving a truckload of dynamite.
"Once you have that excitement in
your blood, it's hard to get rid of," he
said.
That excitement, Sutter explained,
comes from 33 years of not experiencing,
two identical days.
"There's never a dull moment, other
than waiting," Sutter said, making a


friendly dig at reporters and photogra-
phers. "Waiting for outlines."
While sitting in the breakroom Friday,

The seven-judge panel, like
the television show it's pat-
terned after, were given the
opportunity to comment on
each performance.
Unlike the Simon Cowell tal-
ent show, Heartland Idol's
judges offered constructive crit-
icism and words of encourage-
ment, avoiding any words that
could hurt.
"You look hot," Rooter Rush,
a judge, told Felicia Dyer, of
Avon Park, complimenting her
attention to wardrobe.

Langford was chosen during
a special election held among
the judiciary following the

Herring, who will step down
Jan. 1. Herring's term as chief:
judge expires June 30. making
it necessary to elect a chief
judge for the 'remainder of
Herring's term.
Langford ,said Friday, "I
want to .thank all mny fellow
judges for their confidence and
support in ,electing me to, serve
as their chief judge, I look for-
ward to working,with them and-
the other constitutional officers
that interact with the courts to

Langford first worked in the
state attorney's office, and then
ran a private practice before'
becoming a county judge in'
1987. Two years later, he was
made a circuit court judge.

Those are 'cases dealing with

As noted in 'last year's
Champion program, "he. also'
'walks the walk' in his daily,
duties as a guardian of justice in
the judicial system."
The chief judge exercises
administrative supervision over

special program opening day.
In addition to' 15-minute,
"break the ice" sessions with
their teachers, students will
attend special assemblies and


listen to a motivational speaker.
All school administrators
hope parents can give their chil-
dren a good start to the school
year. They hope all students get
a full night's sleep on school
nights, and that the children
have access to a nutritious
breakfast.
Schools do provide breakfast
at no cost to all students, as
result of a federal program.
Each school has a slightly
different bell schedule, because


bus schedules differ. Learn
when a school's tardy bell
rings.
Educators say getting chil-
dren to school on time is a very
importAnt, step to a quality edu-.
cation.
Typically elementary schools
are under way before 8 a.m. -
most about 7:40 or 7:50 a.m.
Secondary schools typically
start a little later, around 8:10
a.m.

Water managers open stormwater


treatment area to alligator hunters


Special to the News-Sun
With only their dark snouts
and heads visible above the
waterline, American alligators
often manage to ,elude even thd
most dedicated daylight
observers. It's a different story
at night when the reptiles'
glowing yellow eyes easily
reflect the glare of a high-pow--
ered spotlight.
Soon, that knowledge will be
put to use by hunters as they
spread out across Florida's
marshes and lakes to take thou-
sands of alligators for meat,
hides and trophies.
For the first time, 50 of those
hunters have the opportunity to
test their skills in STA-5 in
Hendry County, an 8-square-
mile stormwater treatment area
created by the South Florida
Water Management District as
part of the Everglades restora-
tion effort.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission will let hunters take
100 alligators out of STA-5
over nine weekends in August,
September and October. A
small percentage of the .abun-
dant aquatic-loving lizards,.
about 1 million can be found
statewide, are hunted annually
following regulations set and
monitored b%- the FWC.
The district's stormw~ater
treatment area is one of four
new land areas approved for
alligator hunting by the FWC
this year, said Jeri Williams,
public hunt area biologist !for
the FWC's south region.
The district agreed to open
the %wetland area as part'of its
continuing commitment to
broaden land access for public
recreation, said Fred Davis,
division director for. land stew-

hardship.
For the last few years, the
District has welcomed hikers,
bird watchers and duck hunters
in the wetland southwest of
Clewiston off Blumberg Road.
There are plans to add public
restrooms and a parking area on
site in 2007.
There are also boat ramps at
STA-5, an area designated by
the FWC as alligator harvest
unit .406, but hunters aren't
allowed to use motorized boats
at the site to help them capture
and kill alligators. Alligators
can be. hunted on foot from the
levee banks or 'from boats that
,can be paddled or poled.
The boating restriction is
designed to prevent motors
from stirring up phosphorus in
the stormwater treatment area.,
Stormwater treatment areas are


constructed wetlands designed
to reduce levels of the growth-
stimulating nutrient in surface
water flowing into the
Everglades. High levels of
phosphorus encourage the over-
growth of non-native, species,
altering habitat for Florida's
native plant and animal life. ,
Alligator hunting in STA-5 is
scheduled on-" Frida. and
Saturday evenings of Aug. 18
and 19, Aug. 25 and 26, Sepr. 4
and 2, Sept. 8 and 9, Sept.. 15
and 16, and on Oct. 6 and 7.
Hunters with perndks to take
alligators frQm STA5. but who
didn'tcaptute their limit of two
!alligators, can try again Fu da ,
and Saturdj\ e\eninii, of Oct.
13 and 14, Oct 2 1.1Iand 21, and
Oct. 27 and 28.
Camping is not allowed in
the stormwater treatment area.

feel, in her mind she thinks
she's doing the right thing."
Mack was gone when the
News-Sun showed up at her
request. She arrived shortly
thereafter, in a compact black
pickup, springs and foam show-
ing were the upholstery had
worn through or been ripped
away.
The bed of her truck was
loaded down with a bicycle and
four 30-gallon white plastic
drums.
"I want the dogs saved,"
Mack said. "That's my only
concern. Obviously, they're
condemning my property. I
don't care."
She doesn't deny that her
property is in a state of disre-
pair, "horrible" she said.
Fourteen years ago, her pack
was 12 strong. But, over the
years, she began "accumulat-
ing" dogs and puppies as
friends brought strays to her.
One thing led to another, of
course, and they bred.

snapped to being read in the
paper in about 45 minutes.
Back 'then, color pictures,
were taken to Lakeland for
color separation. Now, it's done
in house.
"Back then," Sutter would
walk to Alex's Circle Bar and
Grill for breakfast, lunch and-
dinner. Now, Alex's is no more.
"It was just a great place with
wonderful people," he said,
mentioning owners Alex and
Julie Szabo. "All they served
was beer, wine and great food.
Bein single, that's where I ate
every meal."
Every meal until he met his
wife Judy at Highlands Little
Theatre, where he had a role in
"Pure, as the Driven Snow," the
first show when the theater
opened in 1974.
"Judy has been quite sup-
portive," Craig said qf .his
school-teacher wife's adjusting
to 'his crazy hours. "We learned
to make the best use, of* time
when we had it."
The Sutters didn't have any
children together. She had a
daughter from a previous mar-
riage.'
Romdna Washington, execu-
tive editor of the News-Sun,
worked with Sutter directly for
the past 20 years. Before that,
their paths crossed about once a
week when she worked at the
sister publication, Avon Park
Sun
Well-aware of Sutter's
daughter, it wasn't until about
three years ago that Washington
learned he was Jenny's stepfa-
ther and not her biological dad.
"He is a very loving father,"
Washington said, pausing to'
wipe the tears she could not
contain. "He is very devoted to
his family, to his wife. I thought
that was so cool."
Before she came to know
him, Washington was scared of
Sutter, thinking he was unap-
proachable.
Having gotten to know him,
she would rather not see him
leave, describing Sutter as a
team leader and dedicated
employee who is willing to do
whatever it takes to ensure the

said. "But that wasn't too easy."
Nor has been keeping up
with the poop.
Mack, who said she ,once
owned a cleaning service then
laughed at the irony, said she
fell ill six to eight months ago to
a brown recluse spider bite that
led to something resembling
gangrene in her left foot.
Refusing her doctor's order
to be admitted to a hospital,
Mack said she used what little
energy she had to come out and


paper is put to bed.
"He's not supposed to leave,"
she said, looking away toward a
window. "That's why he and I
don't discuss his retirement."
Lee Smith worked with
Sutter for 27 years in the press-
room, Smith arriving in 1979.
Washington describes Smith
as Sutter's right hand man.
"His daughter calls me 'big
brother,' Smith said, explain-
ing that their families became
close.
"Craig is straight up," he
said. "He would never ask you
to do something that he would-
n't do himself."
A self-taught guru, Sutter
was the go-to guy who mas-
tered all the new hardware and'
software that passed through
the paper's offices, Washington'
said.
His replacement, Joe
Abandola, hails from the The
Daily Democrat in Fort
Madison, Iowa. He brings with
him 24 years of experience.
having worked his a) up from
route driver to production direc-
tor.
Abandola has been employed
at seven papers before coming
here, bringing with him the best
of what worked else where and
lessons learned from what did-
n't.
"Joe is probably the best
thing that could have happened
to this place." Sunter said, tip-
ping his Matt Kenseth ballcap
to his successor. "He. brings a
wealth of knowledge in press
and pre-press. With the help of
the staff, he is going to take the


feed and water her dogs.
But, what was already an
overwhelming task consumed
her, she said, and, she fell
behind.
Mack said she brings about
120 gallons of water to the
property daily. She feeds the
dogs a high-protein diet.
"Anywhere from 200-300
pounds a day," Mack said, not-
ing that she gets the 27-percent
protein dog food at Tractor
Supply Company in Sebring.

future and all the growth we
know is coming, we hope is

Now, Sutter is a wet-behind-
the-ears.- student of South
Florida Community, College's
Truck Driving Academy in
Avon Park, where he is learning
how to maneuver fully -loaded
18-wheelers and keep 'the. logs
that will keep him legal ..
"I'm a map-aholic." Sutter
said, describing his lo\e for the
open road. "I'm getting into,
truck dri\ ing to see the commu-
nity through the 'windshield.
.(Truck drivers) see;- literally
thousands of sunrises and sun-
sets, whether it's prairies or
mountains."
In the short three months that
Publisher Mosby L. Wigginton
Jr.. has worked with Sutter, he
too acknowledges the hard
work done by the retiring pro-
duction manager.
"I am going to miss Craig.
We ha\e a great relano-nship
-He is the onl\ gu\ around here
that understands nmy 'remember
back in 1975 ...' newspaper sto-
ries. He has witnessed signifi-
cant change during his tenure in
newspapers.
Wigginton appreciates
Sutter's desire to live out the
dream of driving a big rig.
"I kno'\ he is looking for-
ward. to driving the big rigs. He
has the same look in his eyes
w hen he discusses his newN call-
ing that he had when coin-
fronting a particular[\ challeng-
ing productionn problem. He'll
do well," Wigginton said.


An employee there con-
firmed Saturday that Mack
spends about $100 per week,
usually on 17 bags at 52 pounds
per bag.
Her dogs, every one of them
has a name, appeared visibly
healthy, considering the filth
that lived on, in. and around.
"A lot of the dogs have
mange, are worriy," Smith said.
Next door neighbor Ken
Reeds, who lives at 461
Earnhardt Drive, was happy to
see the county had "finally"
decided to do something about
Mack's property.
"It's worse than an SPCA
(Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals) kennel over
there," Reeds said, watching the
commotion from his yard.
"How come nobody believes
me that there are a lot of ani-'
mals in there?"
Reeds bought his property -
a few acres with a mobile home
in the middle three years
ago. He said some of the previ-
ous om ners had moved because
of Mack's situation: Her land
helped him get a decent deal on
* his, he said.
There's bad blood between
the two.
Reeds said he .spent his first
year trying to be neighborl,
making suggestions and offer-
ing to help.
Mack denies this, countering
that he coaxed her dogs with
food at the same time e\ern day
for two weeks, only to call ani-
mal control when their pavlov-
ian response led them to his
house.
Reeds said it's not true.
Reeds said Mack's love for

her dogs is true, that her attempt
to provide them care is sincere.
"I truly think Connie loves
the dogs and she truly thinks
she's helping them," he said.
Nonetheless, Reeds said
Friday was a "big day" because
the nuisance was being
addressed, after two years of
calling county code enforce-
ment and animal control offi-
cers.
Other residents, most of them
he said, have made the same
phone calls and have written
letters for years.
Reeds believes the rise in
property values and the increase
of residents from coastal com-,
munities was the impetus for
the county commission to take
action.
A few hundred feet from
Mack's property, Reeds trailer
is perpendicular to her fence
line. He used to sleep in the
bedroom closest to her yard. He
moved to the other end, and
incense continuously fragrants
his home.
"I like her, I hope she stays,"
Reeds said, calling her a strong,
smart and independent woman.
"I just want her to flush her toi-
let.",
With ACOs on her property,
catch poles in hand and reluc-
tant dogs at the other end, Mack
appeared at once relieved and
concerned.
She was relieved that some
good might come from all of
this, that her "babies" might
find good homes.
Mack % as'concerned that her


m


dogs might be put down.
"I'm for life," she said, when
asked if euthanasia was prefer-
able to her dogs' current situa-
tion. "Yes, the conditions are
horrible, but the dogs look
good. I want them to have a
home. I don't think being put
down ... no."
Animal control said the dogs
were wild, that they were
untouched by human hands.
While Mack was absent, the
dogs were out of sight. Those
that were encountered by the
ACOs were'timid.
But, with her return to the
property the dogs showed them-
selves. Several of them stood at
her side.
Mack left the property about
8 p.m., when the county left for
lack of sunlight and lack of
space in their truck-mounted
cages.
She returned early Friday
morning to feed the, approxi-
mately 100 dogs that remained.
"I'm upset and sad," she said.
Mack would like to see her
dogs adopted out to good
homes. Or, she'd like to get as
many back as she can.
If anybody can assist her in
either goal, she asks that they
call her at 414-2359 or her
friend Randy Johnson, 202-
0260.
The Animal Control Office
couldn't be reached for further
comment Saturday afternoon.
"Oprah Winfrey, I need your
help!" Mack said Friday.
"Doesn't she make dreams
come true?"

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
A'" i'.-Sun
SEBRING Tae Kw'on Do is a
Korean mamal art beine taught irn
Highlands.
Formalized as a sport in the
1970s it has evolved oer hundreds
of ears as a martial art for self-
defense. It uses strong blocks., kicks
and punches to disable opponents.
Val Henry. a *master instructor
and owner operator of NMartial Arts
America. ha,s studied the art for 35
%ears. He studied in Korea with
Grand Nlaster Dr. Jung Hv.an Park.
Henrm and his 15-\ear-old son
Hank recently just returned from a
two-%week actionn in Korea where
the\ met Henr\'s erand master.
While there, the grand master test-
ed Hetrn and he was promoted to
the next beltl leel. Henrn is nov. a

instructor. Hank is a third lelel
black belt.
He is credentialed by the World
Tae K%'on Do Federation v.hich is
based in Korea.
In addition. Henrn is certified as
a referee. In fact. be served as a ref-
eree in 1988 during the Seoul
Olmpics w hen Tea Kw on Do
made its debut as a demonstration
"port.
He then coached American team
for the World Championships in
1994. The team came in second
behind England. but the team's
indi% dual members earned nine
medals, the most of all the competi-
tors.
Henr\I was introduced to Tae
Kw\on Do b. his older brother 'w hen
he w.as a teenager. At first he stud-
ied the martial art for himself
While he trained he brokered real
estate and 'went into marketing. It
wasn't until the 1980s that lie


turned his passion into his 1ocadion
He started out in a Dojang i g m i
in Lakeland and moved to Sebnng
from there in 19S88. He has been at
his present location. soN0

Kenilworth Lodge since 19S9.
Tae Ki on Do is an art of the
mind as much as of muscle.
Practicing it. Henr\ said. can
increase concentration and develop
focus.
It also helps condition the bod\.
and dei'elp muscle tone. he said.
and it helps de\ elop endurance.
Henr, has created an after-
school program w, which mn\es aca-
demic tutoring, w ith Tae Kwon Do

Henr. said. "'The Christian faith
is \er\. ver strong in Korea. The
percentage of Chittians is higher
than that of the old Buddhist reli-

To become an instructor an indi-
v idual has to have risen to the sec-
ond Dan to teach under super' i-
sion. One has to reach the fourth
Dan to be able to teach as a master.
Each level requiies more from the
participant, bint age is not a require-
ment.

KICKING
Continued from 11A
the opponent.
Before an individual
engages in sparring sessions,
however. certain set blocks and
kicks and defensive punches
have to be learned.
That is why each class.
begins w ith warm-up sessions
where the athletes go through a
set; of exercises. in\ ol ing five
basic categories of blocks or
kicks.
These exercises are done in
a standardized, rhythmic way,
much like a musician plays
scales as a way'of preparing
for a performance.
The fingering. or arm and
leg movements, are identical
%whether plans i scales ora a
mnelod. whether doingg'warm-
up exercises or engaged % ith
-,an opponent.
Henry, .who. owns and oper-
ates Martial Arts .America.
Assigned Rand\ Paeplow, a
first degree black belt. to take
me to one side and tutor me on
the essential beginnings.
In his other life. Paeplow% is:
the director of South Flonda
S Commnunit. College's Lake
Placid Center. It turned out to
be a good thing he had a back-


ground as a teacher.
That's because I was a diffi-
cult study.
It wasn't that I didn't tr\.
But I ha e problems with left'
and right. Routinely\ I'll point
and mean right, but say left. Or
vice versa.
And I ne\ er really mastered
the art of coiling a line, back in
the da\ when I was a seaman
because I couldn't keep "clock-
wise" in my head. Or better
put, the concept never inade it
as far as my arms.
This becomes pertinent to a,
high and dn Dojang (a, gym
\ here Lie Kwon Do is prac-
ticed'i because my job at
Martial Arts Amenca was to
cop \ the % ay Paeplow moved
his arms arid hands, and ho\\
he spread his feet while
looking in a mirror. No matter
ho\\ hard I tried. I'd end up
getting mN arms backwards
\\ ith the %\ rong hand up. or I'd
leave out motions, and just in
general had a real hard time
gening the knack.
'. Een after Paeplo%
explained \%hat e-er\ move .
meant, so it made a little more
sense because ever\ mo\e
is a block one would use i'.
under attack, or a punch or a
kick to use in self-defense -I
still had trouble.
For example. the first set of


exercises are inside blocking
movements. That is, we moved
the inside of our armvis a if to'
repel an attack. We started with
both hands in fists held togeth-
er in front of us at about the
groin level. Then, sharply, the
left hand is brought up to the
ear, while the right fist is,
drawn back snug to the waist.
,.: Then. just as sharply and
quick, I was supposed to ,
reverse the fists, and have the
right one high and the left one
low.
I think. ,
I never really quite, got that
one right.
E en after we did it three or
four times.
Even while a 5-' ear-old as
doing it over and over again -
with ease -~ jstf a few feet
a.al from me.
It \as just that my~eyes'and&
brain-and nervous sNstem and
outer limbs were not in sync as
I tried.to translate the motions
reflected in the mirror.
I looked like a marionette
handled b% a drunk, as I tried
chopping the airtokeep up.
For some reason, I had a
slightly easier time getting into
the s% ing of the. kick drills.
Except that in order to have
any kind of a chance in a fight,.
I'd hae to restrict m\ self to
opponents three feet tall or,

shorter. It was embarrassing
that my highest kick was lower.
than the standard lot kick.
I was amazed at how much
of a xworkacut the small amount
of exercise was. In fact I was
wringing wet and breathing
hard by the time \\e finished
four'of the'five set preparation
exercises.
We skipped the fifth exercise
which included high kicks
because Paeplow had seen my
strugglee w\ ith the low kicks and
was kind.
, Of course if he and I had
been sparring. I'd have lasted
all of two and a half seconds.

"E-Commerce Workshops"
Heartland Workforce is proud to partner with South Florida Community
College in providing assistance to owners of for-profit businesses (or those
interested in starting their own business) operating in Highlands, Hardee or
DeSoto Counties who wish to explore the possibility of establishing an E-
Commerce-based business (or expanding their existing business to include E-
Commerce capability). Two levels of training will be provided through South
Florida Community College at no cost to the business owner. Level one train-
ing will provide a basic overview of what is involved in getting a business
on the web. Level two training will provide a more hands-on review to
include site building, marketing strategies, hiring a host, and security issues.
Training attendees who have a business license in one of the three participat-
ing counties and start an E-Commerce based business (or expand their exist-
ing business to include E-Commerce capability) will be given the opportunity
to apply for a $250 E-Commerce Implementation Award. A maximum total
of 300 awards will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis. To be eligible
for the award, the business must be a licensed "for-profit" entity, the owner
must attend at least one seminar, and a verifiable E-Commerce website must
be established (by providing a receipt for E-commerce capability purchase).
Additional information will be listed on the application for the award.
Seminars are currently scheduled for the following locations:

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS




Crazy stuff that people do


If you had come 'into my
house sometime over the last
three weeks, you would have
wondered if a computer parts
store had exploded in our living
room. This is because in a
moment of insanity (or maybe a
few days of insanity) John and I
agreed to build three computers
for the family.
Don, told that this would be
so much cheaper than buying
machines that someone else
built, agreed to finance the ven-
ture. You can decide for your-
selves if he had a moment of
insanity.
So John and I ordered the
,parts and waited patiently, more
or less, for them to arrive. I say
"more or less" because we all
had a stake in this. John, James
and Don were to come out of
this' with new high-powered
computers, and I was to inherit
the computer John and I had
built a year ago. It sounds like I
lost out, but John's old comput-
er was light-years ahead of
mine. Besides, mine was show-
ing signs of being very sick, and
I was due for an upgrade.


Identity is

finally made'

Editor:
Finally, the President of the
United States ,'of America,
George Bush. has identified the
enemy. And he did.it on televi-
sion for the world to see, and
hear. His exact words were:
"This nation is at war with'
Islamic Fascists" He didn't
say terrorists, he didn't say
insurgents, he finally told it like
it is. .
iNlaybe now our nation can
rally, in a concerted effort, to
defeat this enemy and prevent
them from achie% ing their goal
of a %world-%wide Islamic state.
The time is now.

Fight is about

ruling the world
Editor:
It seems we have a conflict
on a new front not really
new. The Kathy Fountain show
had three spokesmen on her
show recently. One represent-
ing Israel, two from the Middle
East. one ot which was an
expert on foreign relations, the
other 'who referred to himself
as an American.
However. he was all in favor
of Israel's cease firing, which
would gie the Lebanese leader'
the option to continue as usual.
You decide whether or not he is
'an American.
I question whether or not,
everyone who has citizenship
papers is truly an American.
I have the utmost respect for
the other one. He seemed to be
very knowledgeable about
world affairs. The one in favor
of a cease fire seemed to think
it was the duty of the United
States to put a stop to Israel's
bombing.
The solution is very simple.
If Lebanon would return the
two soldiers they have captured
without provocation, I might
'add, that would put an end to it.'
It seems to me it is not their
desire to end the conflict, but to
be relieved of Israel's retribu-
tion.' If Israel %would cease the
bombing that would give them
time to come up with .a new
strategy.
Hezbollah seems to be tak-
ing orders from someone else
and Israel seems to be fully
aware of that, as was the expert
who was on today's panel.
Some of these countries have
made it very clear that, in their
opinion, Israel should be anni-
hilated. They are fighting a los-
ing battle; God promised those
people that land and He always.
keeps His- promises. He also


Now John and I
had learned some
lessons when we
built the computer
last year. We hoped
to apply those les-
sons to this project.


LAURA'S LOOK

We did, to the extent that we did
not make the same mistakes
. with the new computers we did
with the first one. We made
some brand new ones.
Now I -could attempt to go
into great detail regarding the
mistakes we made and the
struggles we underwent, but let
me put it in layman's terms:
things broke. Or they refused to
work even when we. were 99
percent sure we didn't break
them.
We lost sleep. We threatened
to kill ourselves. Or each other.
I seriously considered finding a
sledgehammer, but cooler heads
prevailed..
So we began the fun, game of
reordering parts and building
the computers v. ith the parts we
had that were cooperating.,
Each time we broke the news .to


Don about having
to replace parts, we
included the
mantra, "But it's
still cheaper!"
Bless my husband,
he took it all in


stride and us at our word. As I
type this we lack only one more
part and we can build the
patient man HIS computer.
And don't get'me started on
The Mystery of the Walking
Tweezers.
Now, John and I have
remained totally sober while
embarking on this path of
insanity. The same probably
cannot be said of some thieves
in Littlerock, Calif. Apparently
the persons in question decided
that it would be fun to steal
some U-Haul moving trucks
and wreck them.
The' reason police think the
thieves were drunk is that the
four dented trucks that have
been found thus far smell rather
strongly. Two of the trucks are
still missing. The thieves appar-
ently ripped a keN drop box off


of a concrete pillar that sat in
front of the U-Haul office in the
wee hours of the morning.
Then there is the mayor of
Blackey, Ky., who as far as I
can tell is a sober individual.
He' also has given away his
lawn mower and posted a sign
on the fence of hig property that
reads, "There are more impor-
tant things in life than tall
grass."
Mayor Mike Dixon says
flowers have started growing on
his lawn since he quit mowing
it last year. Birds and squirrels
have moved in. Dixon says he
didn't want to fight nature any-
Smore.
His constituents appear to
take it into stride. Dixon admits
that some people probably think
he's weird.
Maybe. But as I've always
said, sanity is an overrated state
of mind.

Story behind

POW/MIA flag
Editor:
In 1971, Mrs. Michael Hoff,
a Missing in Action wife recog-
nized the need for a symbol of
our Prisoner of War/MIAs.
Mrs. Hoff contacted the vice
president of Annin &
Company. After telling Mr.

'In my observation, any journalist

who has anything to say has had

the abundant opportunity to

relieve his mind. .
WILLIAM L. CHENERY, editor, Collier's, 1941'


Rives of her plight, he agreed to
design a flag. \ which became the
symbol to represent o 'ur
POW/MIAs. ,
On March 9. 1989. the offi-.
cial POWI/MIA flag was flown
over the White House.
Congress then set the third
Friday in September to be a day
of recognition to our
POWI ML\s.
SThe POW/MIA flag still
stands proudly\ beside "Old
Glory" in the U.S.. Capitol

POW/MIA flag will fly on

School starts Monday


The first day of the
school season is
Monday. While you
may have gotten a lit-
tle lax around', the
county's schools, now
is the time -to pay
attention to our .'
school zones. As I'm
sure you are aware
the traffic volume
around these schools HT
will increase substan-
tially the first week of J.P.
school. P ,-
As if traffic fines
'weren't high enough
already, you really need to
remember that in school zones
the fines for speeding are dou-
ble. Most school zones are set
at 15 miles per hour so driving
just six miles over the speed
limit will. cost you $105.50.
Increase your speed.to 10 MPH
over the posted limit and the
fine jumps to $255.50.
While you may find it hard to
believe, on occasion violators
have been cited for actually
driving 30 MPH over the post-
ed speed limit in a school zone.
That fine is a whopping
$555.50.
Keep in mind that you may
have to pay that fine within 30

and tips to help us out at the
beginning of this school year.
Pedestrian incidents are the
second leading cause of acci-
dental death among children
ages 5-14. In 1999, 559 pedes-
trians ages 5-18 were killed
after being struck by a motor
vehicle 109 of those deaths
took place during normal
school transportation hours in.
the 1998-1999 school year.
More school-age pedestrians
are killed in the late afternoon

Continued from 20A
deaths occurred at non-intersec-
tion locations.
In 1999, 260 bicyclists ages
5-18 were killed in crashes with
motor vehicles. The fatality rate
for these young bicyclists was
nearly double the rate for all
bicyclists. Most of the bicy-
clists killed or injured while rid-
ing were boys (80 percent).
Children are more likely to
die from a bicycle injury
between 4 and 8 p.m. (46 per-
cent) than any other time of day.
Normal school transportation
hours are the most dangerous
time of the school day for chil-
dren. In the 1998-1999 school
year, 864 children died between
the hours of 6-9 a.m. and 2-5
p.m.
The main entrance area of
schools is one of the most dan-
gerous transportation zones.
This area combines all of the
dangers listed above into a
compressed time period during
school transportation hours.


Increased congestion around
schools, as people drop off and
pick up students, requires extra
caution by drivers.
Parents often overestimate
their children's pedestrian
skills. Children ages 10 and
under should not cross an inter-
section without proper supervi-
sion. Children are at risk for
pedestrian injury because they
are exposed to traffic threats
that exceed their thinking skills.
Also, .children are impulsive
and have difficulty judging
speed and distance.
You should teach your child
to stop at a curb (or edge of the
roadway) and look left, right,
then left again for traffic before
beginning to cross. Make sure
children have safe play areas
away from traffic such as
fenced playgrounds and yards.
Also, teach children to stop,
look and listen for trains before
crossing railroad tracks and to
never play on or near the tracks.
If your school, drop-off zone
has heavy traffic (they all do)
reduce your speed and watch
for flashing warning signs. Be


alert to small children that may
dart in and around traffic in
these areas.
If you are in these areas,
ensure that your child isn't
allowed to walk unassisted until
they are clear "of the drop-off
zone. When you leave remem-
ber to still keep your speed
down until you have complete-
ly left the school zone.
Since this is just the begin-
ning of the. school year, let's all
agree to have the safest year
yet. Use caution when around
our schools. You finished
school. There is nothing going
on in life worth risking a child's
life.
Remember to drive defen-
sively and arrive alive. As we
all know this is a wonderful
community. Take your time get-
ting where you are going safely.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


A giving heart
He was about 7 years old.
He had entered the sanctu-
ary with several other chil-
dren on their way to Sunday
school class. Suddenly, he
stopped in his tracks. ,
The others went on their
way. He glanced their direc-
tion, but stuck to his mis-
sion. Pulling out his wallet,
he carefully dislodged sev-
eral dollar bills and dropped
them into the offering box.
Once accomplished, he
turned on his heel to join the
others.
No fanfare --just a sim-
ple act of worship on the
part of this child.
I stood in silent wonder.
His generous spirit moved
me.
Behind this boy's action
had to be a parent who
cared enough to teach him
how to manage money and
view it from a biblical per-
spective. If a child is taught
to manage moriey in a bibli-
cal manner, he w ill grow up
with that as a natural part of
,who he is.'
When parents instill in
their children that et er\-
thing they have, including .
money, belongs to God, it's
easier for them to under-
stand that they; are caretak-
ers of \what he entrusts to
them., And that's what a
steward is.
Being a good steward. he
will know how to give. sate
and spend appropriately.
Such training helps discour-.
age impulsiveness.
Yet. teaching generosity\
doesn't onl. affect how a
child handles mone\. It
trains him to think in wa\s
that prompt generous and
compassionate actions.
S"Give ana a yourlife;.
you'll find life gi\en back,
but not merely glen back
given back with bonus
and blessing. Git ing. not
getting. is the kway.
Generosity begets generosi-
ty," says Jesus in Luke 6:
38. "The Message."
Today's culture isn't very
interested in.giving or sav-
ing. Rather it is motivated
toward getting and, get-,
ting no\%. Credit cards have
made us think we have more
money than we actually I
have because we don't have
to w\ait to indulge our .
desires.
But, there's a big price to
pa\ when those cards come
due and the money) earned
does not cover the money
owed..Then out purchases
become burdens. And
indebtedness precludes giv-
ing and saving squelch-
ing generosity.
It all comes back to the
heart. 'That's w here motita-
tion is formed: attitudes are
developed and from %where
our actions spring.
"Above all else. guard
your heart, for it is the well-
spring of life," says
Proverbs 4. 23. N1V.
And, what exactly is a
wellspring? According to
Webster's Dictionary, it is
"the head or source of a
spring, stream, ri er. etc:
fountainhead" or. "a source
or supply of any thing, espe-
cially When considered inex-
haustible."
Something else struck me
about that little boy. It was
the look on his face. He was
purposeful, joyful and free.
He wore the reflection of a
giving heart. Selah.

Katie Amos. 12. of
Sebring. adds a bit
more color to her
monogram
pedestal art.






By JAN MEROP
:.V 10-S N 't il


SEBRING
g atie Savannah Amos. 12. is a
breath of springtime -
every season of the year. Her
bright, bubbly personality
and colorfully. fenunine
expressions from cloth-
ing, to art, to decorating her
room at home reflects a
deep, inner joy that is contagious.
At the tender age of 5, two. other
virtues began spilling over from her
heart compassion and generosity.
Katie and her family annually vaca-
tion,atia retreat in North Carolina in the
fall. It has been a family tradition since
Katie's mom. Victoria. was a child her-
self.
While there seven years ago. they
became acquainted % with a family from
Moldo ia. Russia.
Katie listened to conversations about
how this family had taken in orphans
and as a result had started an orphan-
age. Ho.wever. they were concerned
about how' they would heat their home
that winter and feed even one.
So. 5-year-old Katie dug out her
crayons and markers and began draw-
ing pictures. Without divulging why,
she 'went to other retreat guests to sell
her art earning pocket change for
each picture.
When she had about $3.75. she went
to the Russian couple. Peter and Anna
Fortuna, and presented the money to
help them with their needs at the
orphanage. This amount 'would actually
allow them to heat their house for the
%w inter.
The couple %was so moved by this
small child's compassion and generosi-
ty. they enveloped her in huge hugs:
and. thus was the beginning of a won-
derful relationship and Kate's con-
tinuing mission to use her creative art
talents to help the orphans in Moldovia.
To date. she has sent about $500.
Throughout the year. Katie creates
and sells her art as she did recently


'p.',. V"


at the Christmas in July event at the
Kenilworth Lodge. Sebring. A portion
of everything she sells goes to the
orphanage. But. when she returns to the
retreat in the fall. all the proceeds of
everything she sells there goes to the
orphanage.
"The people up there know me and
look forward to seeing whatt I'm doing
and the new things I have made," she
said. smiling at the thought of what that
w ill mean to the orphans.
In fact. the manager of the retreat
matches %whatever Katie earns, doubling
the blessing.
"One of the Moldovian children was
sick with TB tuberculosis ." Katie said.
"They ha'e to go to a special place for
treatment. Traveling adds to the expens-
es. I was able to raise awareness about
this problem at my school and other
kids donated money to help this sick
child. "
Katie believes in giving back.
"As I really think about it. I am so


blessed. I have a %wonderful family.
home, food. friends, clothing and lots of
opportunities I can get an education
and make something of my future. It's
the least I can do to gite back to some-
one else." she said sincerely.
Because of her earl% inuolhement in
helping others. Katie is cont inced that
e eryone can make a difference, no
matter %what age they may be.
"A lot of kids think you can't make a
difference. But. \ou can. You don't
hate to help someone half n'a. around
the world, either. You can help a neigh-
bor rake lea es."
Realizing she has been blessed %w ith a
great family and home, she still insists
that even if a person doesn't come from
the greatest home. there are other thOngs
to be thankful for in this \world.
"You get to go to school and you can
always give back a little. Little things
will make a big difference in sonme-
body's life."

Katie Amos (above) puts the finishing
touches on a new painting that she refers
to as more urban and eclectic a ne"
technique and style she just learned at
art camp at the Orlando Museum of Art
- an intensive weeklong experience. Her
artwork ibelow i carious shapes and

"'Nl mother is mny inspiration. She's .

tinilie" She 's always bright and

Consequently, this little blurirness ven-'
ture of mother and daughter is the per-
feet c)ontinIation in developing a close,
grow ing relation-hip. It ies them lots
of thing to: talk about ,' while spending,
time together.

faith, gofak and
dreams
.Katie can't even imag-
ine where she'd be with-
out God and her faith in
him. r
"As a Christian, we are
all called to go out and
help people. God blessed
me with the gift of art. I
love using my talent for
him."
Katie's thankful for the
way God opens opportu-
nities for her to use her art
to help others.:
S o"I wouldn't be any-
where without him," she
said, citing her favorite
verse, Philippians 4: 13,
NKJV, which,says, "I can.
*do all things through
Christ who strengthens
me."
And that includes sev-
eral more things that are
dancing around Katie's
mind and heart.
Katie has had the
opportunity of visitingthe
Habitat Global Village. While most
people are familiar with Habitat's work
in the United States, the Global Village
exhibitis t: work in other countries.
Thi", \, ouild be what Katie would like to
,et inI, olhed in next.
"\\hen ,,nu see how some families
are I i inc in huts and hovels and then
hi-v. that improves with the Habitat
home, it', amazing."
She ha, a heart for Compassion
International as well and is praying
about pos_,ibly sponsoring a child in
another country.
When asked if she would-ever like to
travel to Rumssia to see the Fortunas and
the orphans she has'been supporting,
she said it k would mean so much to go
visit and see a family whose life she's
been a part of all this time. But, at 12
\ear old. that's still only a dream.

ifcamnpliahmenta with purpose
Katie continues to take art classes
and explore various art forms; recently,

Hollyhocks: An old fashion favorite


One of my favorite flowers is the
.hollyhock, I can remember as a little
girl my grandmother had lots of holly-
hock growing along the fence, I love to
pick the seed and sow them. I haven't
seen any growing in Florida, but my
research tells me the grow in most
zones.
Hollyhocks are easy to grow and
will flower the first year if started early
indoors. More often though, they will
bloom the second year. You will love
the profusion of the single and showy
double blooms in a wide range of col-
ors include white, yellow, crimson,
pink, rose, and red.
Hollyhocks have heart shaped
leaves and bloom from July to
September in most areas. These tall,
flowers make great backgrounds, bor-
der or even fences.


Propagation:
Hollyhock are often start-
ed from seed. They can be
sowed directly into your
flower garden. The seed
germinates in two to three
weeks at 60 degrees. If you
start them indoors six to
eight weeks before the last
frost and they may bloom
the first year.
In the garden, they need
plenty of room. Final spac-
ing. should be 18-24 inches.
Give them plenty of room
for air circulation and mini--
mize rust and other disease.

How to grow:
Hollyhock like full sun

n


shade. They grow quickly to
a height of four to five feet
or more, depending upon the
4 variety you have selected for
your yard.
Hollyhock grow in aver-
age, medium wet, well-
drained soil in full sun. It fol-
Sl rates a wide range of soil
conditions and some light
shade, but will not tolerate wet
winter soil. Adding a general
purpose fertilizer once a
month will result in bigger,
- fuller blooms.


Problems:


Foliage is susceptible to rust, leaf
spot and anthracnose. Rust is a fungal
to partial disease that infects leaves and stems of


hollyhock. Lower leaves show the con-
dition first, and the disease progresses
upward during the growing season.
First symptoms appear on the leaves
as individual, yellow, circular spots
about one-eighth inch in size that
enlarge to one-quarter inch or more in
diameter. On the underside of the
leaves, swellings or blisters soon
emerge within these spots. At this
stage, the symptom resemble insect or
mite .galls found on many other plants,.
however, such galls are rare on holly-
hock. The swelling continue to devel-
op and in a few more day, they release
masses of reddish brown spores, cov-
ering the entire undersurface of the
leaf. Leaves that are heavily infected
eventually turn gray or tan and die.
.-Spider mites and Japanese beetle.
can also be a problem. Foliage can


become rather tattered and unkempt in
appearance when attacked by the
aforementioned insects and disease,
but the flowers generally are not
affected. May need staking particularly
if not protected from wind.

Reflecting on water management and conservation history


Many people are' unfamiliar
with the historical and current
roles of the Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District,
Highlands County Natural
Resource Department and the
Natural Resource Conservation
Service' (formerly the Soil
Conservation Service). These
three agencies share resources
at the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center on U.S. 27 South
of Sebring.
Conservation Districts and
the "SCS were established
nationwide in the 1940s, fol-
lowing the Great Dust Bowl, to
conserve agricultural resources..
Today these agencies still focus
primarily on agriculture, 'but
also work toward other ponser-
vation efforts of local impor-
tance, leading to the inclusion
of the county's. Lake
Management Program in our
office.
Conservation districts are a
subdivision of' state govern-
ment, there is one in almost
every county in the United
States, and activities are gov-
erned by a five 'nemiber elected
board of supervisors. In Florida
However, the state provides ,no
funding to the conservation dis-
tricth the HSWCD receives
funds only from sales of maps,,
aerial photos, and soil surveys.
Conservation district offices
and staff are funded by count,
government and our office cur-
rently consists of myself, office
manager' Jackie Baile\. lakes
manager Clell Ford and lakes
manager assistant Erin'
McCarta. We, also share space
and resources with the NRCS,
as most conservation districts
do. The NRCS is a federal


agency of the USDA
and has two employ-
ees located in the
county.
The HSWCD was
originally formed as'
the Istokpoga Soil
Conservation District
in 1942 and the initial
focus of the district
was to address flood-
ing concerns around
Lake Istokpoga. By
1946, the HSCWD'
covered the entire
county and-in 1955
the HSHWCD cod-
sponsored the first

Statistical information can be researched at library


Statistics can inform or con-
fuse, solve problems or muddy
the waters, and no clearer
example is that of Lake Placid's
paperback book "Florida Health
Care. in Perspective 2006."
Issues covered in the book use
statistics gleaned from the cur-
rent year to as much as four
years earlier.
Take the subject of births: in
2004 Florida ranked' fourth in
the nation, unchanged from
2003, and we also were fourth
in births to unmarried women,
first in the nation in births to
black teenage mothers and third
ranked in births to all teenage
mothers.
The newest statistics avail-
able on abortions are from 2002
and report Florida as-second in
the nation in legal abortions,
with infant deaths in 2004


ranked fourth, but our total
death statistics in 2004 ranked
second, down from first in
2003. The estimated deaths by
cancer and specifically prostate
cancer in 2005 "placed Florida
second in the nation, also AIDS
deaths in 2002 ranked us sec-
ond. Death in 2002, whether by
firearms,- motor, vehicle acci-
dents, or by any other accident,
ranked Florida third in the
nation. .The good news is
Florida ranked fourth in the
nation in the number of com-
munity hospitals and hospital
beds, but we,were also fourth in
hospital admissions in 2004. A
glimmer of hope comes with
Florida ranked first in hospice
patients in residential facilities.
The year 2006 was great as
we registered first in our nation
for Medicare and Medicaid
Certified Community Mental


Health Center, and
Outpatient Physical
Therapy Facilities.
Continuing a look at
the financing of
health care in Florida,
we were first in the
nation in 2003 for the ,
percent of total pre-
miums for family IBRnim
coverage health LIBRARY
'insurance paid by C
employees, and in CarH
2004 third nation- Hess
wide in persons not
covered by health
insurance. It shouldn't be a
secret to -anyone that Florida
was second in Medicare
enrollees in 2004. I don't know
what it was like this past year,
but in 2001 we ranked first in
per capital Medicare benefit
payments. Whether physicians
are in primary .care, medical


specialties, or surgi-
cal specialties,.
Florida in 2004
ranked fourth,
reflecting the graying
of our state.
So, how do we rate
in physical fitness?
We're third in the
nation in users of
LINES exercise equipment,
and golfers, and
lyn fourth in participants
link in running, jogging
or swimming. Pretty
good, eh? Well, the
bad news is Florida residents in
2003 were also ranked third in
alcohol consumption. But the
good news is we are eighth in
the percent of adults who are
former smokers. One more tid-
bit of bad news in 2003,
Florida residents ranked sev-
enth in the nation in percent of


adults with high blood pressure
and/or high cholesterol.
You read the papers, you
watch the news, so it shouldn't
be unbelievable that we ranked
40th in safety. belt usage in
2005. Our law enforcement
agencies have consistently
communicated the urgency of
saving lives when seat belts are
properly used, but how many
are listening?
What good are statistics?
They can give you a picture of
the progress our state has made
in health care, but they can also
show you the ,dark side of
health issues still festering in
our counties and towns. Health
information is readily available
at your libraries. Come to us forr
information on diseases, maga-
zines that delineate the healthy
life, addresses of agencies,
local, state; arid national, that


can help with a health issue,
books that help deal with sui-
cide, cancer or other life-threat-
ening events, and issues of
home care, long-term care, and
assisted living facilities. Advice
on everything from weather to
walking, surfing to stretching,
diet to donor, funerals to
fibroids, is available on our
shelves and online. Peruse our
newspapers, peer at our period-
icals, print out all sorts of infor-
mation it's here at your

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
August 14, 2001: Team
Florida let too many
chances slip past and
Texas made them pay at
the Di.ie Youth Malors
World Series in Madison
Heights, Va. Te'as scored
twice in the ninth inning to
take a 3-1 lead and elimi-
nated the Avon Park All-
Stars in their first ever trip
to the tournament. Florida
left 10 runners on base,
including the winning run
on second in both the sev-
enth and eighth innings
with the score tied 1-1
Luke Sedlock worked
seven strong innings
before leaving the game
due to Divie rules. Team
Florida was beaten 9-4 in
the opening round of the
tournament by Tennessee.

10 Years Ago
August 14, 1991: Avon
Park's (11-12) Dixie Youth
All-Stars opened the state
tournament with a 20-0
blanking of host Bellview,
but were eliminated follow-
ing a 6-1 loss to Hernando
and a 14-0 loss to Pace.
During the first game,
Avon Parlk out-hit the host
Steam 12-2, including four
home runs. Chad Pritchett,
who went 3-for-4, belted
back-to-back homers in the
third and fourth innings.
Avon Park got all it would
need in the first inning,
scoring four runs on sin-
gles by Mike Ruggiero,
Pritchett and Doug Lemler.

,AVON PARK There seem- to be a unifiing
theme throughout Highlands County as the sununer
winds down and teams begin preparation for the fall

Building lor the future.
The South Florida Community College women's
volleyball team is no exception, and while head coach
Kim Crawford knows expectations should be modest
for her ) outhful squad. she kno, s achieving in the

Ciaivtord ii rewards[ to her coaching approach "If'I'm
not ready to put the intensity into my drills and give
them that adrenaline and excitement, I'm wasting their
time." ..
. The Parntihets busy training schedule has. made time
a precious commodity. Takin.; advantage of ha' IIIng

(cklas.es begin on Aug. 23), the ladies ha.. e cramnied

gymnasium, it's no wonder Crawlford's
responsibiliies are a full-time job.
"She's v. orkin1 us hard, but v.e need
it." said sophomore Elizabeth
McLauchlin. "I like to be pushed. ,, .
We're working hard on blocking and
defense. Of course xu need io hat e
a little of e'ci\thin:, but I feel like we're e going to
have a strong team."

prise the eter.an leideirhip" core of SFCC and'are
the team's only lettirnhin. pla ers. Tihe 201115 team

Tricks for

catching bass

in the summer
Here v.e are in the letter half
of 'lTirnei el'. ith the ','.el. erin,
heat and humidity dit inng
everyone to seek relief in the
comfort ofair-conditionine
The bh.ts v. ill also be se.archinc
for shad) are.,s to escape mid-
day temperatures,
While old bucketmouth may
not perspire like q, he does
gets mil uncomfortable if
ne roarnm; the shallow I for too
long after sunup. The deeper
lakes afford the bass and other
fish a cooler area in their
depths' Shallo\er lakes give
the fish a haven from the sun
in v.eed beds and lily pads.
At timees, v'.e hear fishermen
cursing hi drilla and mniltoil as
they lose. a bass tangled in the .
tough, stringy vegetation, but
we need to remember that in
some lakes it is the only cover
the fish have. While those big
weedy areas can be intimidat-
ing, they are the favorite
retreat for big bass.
For any real success, anglers
need to look for deviations,
breaks and holes in the weed
beds. Take advantage of pitch-
ing to those breaks and holes
instead of indiscriminately
tossing a bait into the weed
bed. Using a heavy bullet
weight will take your soft plas-
tic lure down through the mat
to where the big bass are.
Big bass will roam the
edges, of weed beds searching
for bait fish. The hydrilla is a
haven for shiners, shad and
other fish and minnows that
make up the diet of bass.
Never pass up a chance to fish
those edges.
A weedless jig is a super
bait for slipping through grass
and weeds. Ordinarily, smaller
bass will seldom bother a jig;
it is really a big bass lure. In
deeper lakes where bass can
take advantage of the cooler
depths, I like to use plastic
worms or creature baits fished
slowly on the bottom. This is
also the place for big-lipped
crank baits. Use a fast retrieve
to get it down near the bottom,
then slow the retrieve to just
fast enough to keep it in the
strike zone.
Large bass will move into

STRENGTH
S* Continued from ID
* "The last two years, we had lineman and not
many skill people," he said. "This year, we're
blessed with about 12. skill people and only seven
S linemen. It's going to depend on a little bit of
luck, but we're in a lot better shape and a heck of
S-- a lot stronger than, the last two. years, so I don't
look for injuries to be a factor."
- For a team with such a short roster, the
- - Dragons are actually deep at quarterback. Senior
George Rasmussen and junior Conlin Veley are
each capable of starting, and neither one is con-
S^ sidered to be at the top of the depth chart. Both
will almost certainly take snaps in .each game,.
and Maddox said who is under center will depend
S* - on who the opponent is or \%hat the game situa-
b tion is at the time.
-- "They'll both play. Both of them have
strengths that we'll pla\ to," Maddox said.
"George can do certain things better than Conlin
and there's thin s Conlin can rdo better than
** S George. It's not really a competition between
* them It's about what can help us \\ in ball games
the most.


"It's a good situation because when I've got
one in there playing, I can talk to the other one
and explain things and they can see what's going
on so they'll know what to look for when they get
into the game."
Maddox has been coach football long enough
he, won two state titles, coaching in the
Panhandle to know that 20 players is not
exactly the desired amount of bodies one would
like to' have suiting up. But he also knows thai
having 20 players who have proven they are will-
ing to work hard is sometimes better than having
40 when only half of them really want to be there.
That's why he seems confident that this will be
the Dragons' best season in a while, one where
they can possibly finish over .500 for the first
time since 1999
"If this group stays healthy. we'%e got a chance
to win some ball games," Maddox said. "We're a
lot more athletic, we've done a lot of quickfiess,
speed and agility work since last year and we're
a lot quicker.
"We look athletic, which is something, we
haven't looked like in two years." ,
The Dragons open with the preseason kickoff
classic at Sebring at 7:30 p.m. Thursday..


BASS
Continued from 1D
shallow waters in the evening
hunting for their quarry. They
will remain in the shallows
until dawn. When the sun
begins to warm the water, they
will head back to the depths or
the weed beds.
Shallow-running spinner-
baits can be effective early in
the morning, using a slow
retrieve over weed beds. It
could be more even effective
with the addition of a trailer.
The shade from boat docks
and vegetation around the
banks will usually hold bass a
little longer in the morning.
The middle of the day is not
a good time to be out on the
lake. This summer sun is just
too much and a person can get
dehydrated very easily. This
can be a very dangerous situa-
tion. It would certainly be a
problem if a person needed
medical help and even more so
if that person were out there
alone.
As if contending with the
heat weren't enough, we now
Need to watch out for those
afternoon thunderstorms. A
thunderstorm on the lake is no
fun, as I found out a few years
ago when I was fishing a large
lake and not paying enough
attention to the weather.
I had crossed the'lake after
leaving the boat ramp. The
S cool breeze I was enjoying
S suddenly became a very strong
t wind. I put my gear away as
quickly as I could and started
Smy 10-horse kicker. The thun-
Sderstorm overtook me long .
before I got to the ramp.
I really thought the wind
t and rough water would whip
my boat over. It scared me
enough that I now pay atten-
S tion to the skies when fishing
and I hope you do, too.
Be safe, be aware and watch
those skies.

' Lacking in experience and
height, the Lady Panthers hope
to ride defense and teamwork
to success this season.
"I was a little %worried when
I moved that I would be by
myself a lot, but the team's
been great," said Birkemeier,
from Columbus Grove, Ohio.
"We're like a big family.
There's a lot of team chemistry
and everyone really gets
along."
