Troubles



exposed in



facilities



department
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING -The difficulties faced b\
complex\ organizations working \itih public
money were on display Tuesday night as
members of The School Board of Highlands
County prepared to tole for the 2006-07
school and district adiniistrators salary
schedules.
Unlike the pri ate sector. \ here indi., iduals
bargain separately oser compensation issues.
the public sector has to bargain en masse. This
means there are times of frustration for over-
seers when ani Individual may or may not be
fulfilling his or her responsibilities, because
the overseers' hands are so often tied.
Because board member Donna Hov\.enon
could not resolve her concerns about one
administrator, she said it \\as w ith great reluc-
tance she would be unable to take action on
the salary schedules for all district administra-
t[rs.
Board member \Vend\-Rentro. sain the
issue put her between a rock and a hard place
and that she meant nothing negan'e against
district administrators. supported Howe\rton
who mo' ed that the district-based adninitiia-
tors be pulled from the salary\ schedule.
That motion \\,a defeated b\ the other
board members. 3-2. as \as a second motion
by Ho\\etMon that tried to separate the facili-
ties coordinator from the group as a s\hole.
Howerton wan\lted to delay ain raise for that
individual until an inquiry t into his effectit e-
ness w'as done.
.t issue Ho erton said. is a problem of lox
morale at the facilities department and the dif-
ficulty the department is ha' ing in retaining
its trade specialists.
One aspect of the problem is the differential
in pa> bet\\een vsorking for a private contrac-
tor. or v.orking for the school system
But another issue. How\erton said. was how
disconnected the coordinator ot the facilities
department had become from .working condi-
tions in the field.

SEBRING James "Ron"
Bryant of Wauchula was
expecting a new granddaughter
for his birthday. What he wasn't
expecting, was the need to
deliver little Sarah Elizabeth
Long himself on the side of
State Road 66.
Rhonda Long of Zolfo
Springs began to experience
labor pains on the afternoon of
Aug. 15, although her due date
was almost two weeks away on
Aug. 27, the date of Bryant's
42nd birthday.

Russell,. both employed by

Early

Learning

Coalition
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Governor Jeb
Bush has appointed Andrew
Bible chairman of the Early
Learning Readiness Coalition
of Florida's Heartland.
The coalition, which includes
Highlands, Charlotte, DeSoto
and Hardee counties, is respon-
sible for preparing children 5
'years old or younger for school.
It oversees and administers the
.funding provided by the staie
legislature for the Voluntary
Pre-Kinderarten and School
Readiness programs.
Local readiness offices coor-
dinate the private schools that
provide the education. which is
funded by taxpayer dollars. It is
one of 31 similar coalitions in
Florida. Its budget in 2005, the
first year of operation, was
more than $14 million.
Bible, who comes from a
long line of educators, is the-
"black sheep" banker of the
family. His father, Jim, is the
deputy superintendent of
Highlands County schools.
A Heartland native, Bible
attended local schools, graduat-
ing from Sebring High School
in 1991. He attended the
University of Florida and
earned a bachelor of science
degree in agriculture, and a mas-
ter's degree in business admin-
istration.
He is the chief financial offi-
cer for the Heartland National
Bank.
Bible is also currently treas-
urer of the Greater Sebring
Chamber of Commerce and a
director of the RotarN Club of
Sebring. In the past he has been
president of Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity.
Bible and his wife, Susan,
have four children ages 8, 6, 4
and 2.
The Bibles own and operate
Sebring Florist.
Bible was already on the
coalition's board when its
chairperson, Erica Scheips-
meire of Bowling Green, had to
step aside because of time con-
straints.
While the VPK program has
been successful in its first year,
with increased numbers of stu-
dents attending more schools in
its second year, the coalition
itself, made up of four counties
with divergent needs, has expe-
rienced growing pains.

Then, Long's water broke, and
Bryant knew it was no flu bug
that was causing her grand-
daughter's discomfort. Long's
father was called to take her to
the hospital.
"I don't know. what I was
thinking," Ron Bryant said. "I.
was in a hurry and I thoughtthat
the best thing to do would be

Florida Heartland Hospital. If
I'd known, then what I know

"By .then Rhonda was sure
that the baby was going to come
any second, and I was thinking
she was right. The woman on
the phone told me to pull over
and make Rhonda lie down on

I did. I pulled over near Lake
Josephine and put the van in

News-Sun, Friday, August 25, 2006

TheScooBardofHihlnd Cn-


Alvin Connei
Editor's note: The News-Sun
asked questions of important
issues to the candidatesfor The
School Board of Highlands
County. They were asked to
keep their answers to 400 words
of lessfor each question. Today,
those questions for the District
1 candidates appear on this
page. District 5 candidates will
appear Sunday. Although
Richard Norris is running
unopposed for his District 4
seat, he was also given the
option of responding to the
same questions. However, the
News-Sun has not heard from
him. Some candidates did say
they had not received their list
of questions, mailed out more
than a week before the dead-
line, in a timely manner, but all
other candidates did reply.

1. How will impact fees fig-
Sure into your future funding?
If there is too much impact it
will affect future growth. If
there is no impact we will not
be able to keep up with the
demarids.
2. What are your thoughts
on the Kindergarten Center,
where all Sebring kinder-
garten students will be
brought together in one facili-
ty for instruction? What
about transporting the stu-


Wally Randa
1. How will impact fees fig-
ure into your future funding?
The advantage of impact fees
isit is a tool to collect addition-
al revenue to help lessen the
impact of growth. However,
because it's not a predictable
revenue 'source, it can't be
bonded. Issuing bonds allows
our district to build today for'
tomorrow's needs while paNling
only 3.5 percent interest rather
than 15 percent construction
inflation costs.
2. What are your thoughts
on the Kindergarten Center,
where all Sebring kinder-
garten students will be
brought together in one facili-
ty, for instruction? What
abiuti transporting the, stu-
dents? Are there any alterna-
tives?
I would never support any
program that caused risk or
increased risk to a single stu-
dent. My questions during this
debate were regarding trans-
portation. My principals
assured me our kindergarten
students would be safe. If you
knew our principals like I do,
you would trust them as com-
pletely as I do.-
3. Is the graduation rate
here acceptable? If not, what
should be done to improve it?
If a single student drops out.
that's one too many. We have
begun drop out preTention from
the very first day of kinder-
garten. By insuring students
earn each promotion, we are
reducing the chances,of anyone
being behind by the time they
reach high school. This year we
created the Freshman Founda-
tion at our high schools. This is
another tool to focus and invig-
orate our students to earn their
diploma.
4. Do we have a truancy
problem in Highlands County
schools? If so, how do we deal
with it?
The truancy problem is state
wide. State law allows a student
to accumulate up to 50 unex-
cused-absences before a princi-
pal can begin any action. That's
ridiculous. I am working on a
task force with law enforce-
ment, legislators and cornmunI-
ty leaders.to create a bill.for
action in Tallahassee.
5..At what level should a
student be expected to declare
a college major/field of inter-
est?
I changed majors during my
junior year at University of
South Florida. I believe the
ninth grade is a good place to..
begin .focusing on a field:-
However, focusing and, being
locked in are very different. As
long as we teach the relevance


of high school subjects, stu-
dents can apply their knowl-
edge to many areas. Since this
high school generation's life
expectancy exceeds 80,-you
don't really have to 'know
exactly what you want to do
with the rest of \our life at age
';16. I's our job !o prepare them
to take ad antage of opportuni-
ty.
6. What is the role of voca-
tional education in the school
system?
Vocational ed, or career tech


dents? Are
there any
alterna-
tives?
I think:"
it's a good
idea, but I
have some CONNER
concern
about the
location on.U.S. 27; also trans-
portation since lots of kinder-
gartners' parents drop off/pick
up.
3. Is the-graduation rate
here acceptable? If not, what
should be done to improve it?
Yes, it is acceptable.
4. Do we have a truancy
problem in Highlands County
schools? If so, how do we deal
with it?
Yes, try to identify why kids
are not interested in school.
5. At what level should a
student be expected to declare
a college major/field of inter-
est?
Junior or senior high school;
unfortunately lots, of students
graduate and have no idea what
they want to do.
6. What is the role of voca-
tional education in the school
system?
, The role of vocational educa-
tion is to help find vocational
interests.


education is
the. future.
Technology
is literally
exploding
all around
creating
new and RANDALL
exciting
care er
opportunities. We are expand-
ing our career tech program in
conjufiction with SFCC. I fore-
see dual enrollment career
classes in the near future.
7. What is a productive cit-
izen? How do we prepare our
students to become produc-
tive citizens?
A productive citizen is one
who obeys the rules, treats oth-
ers with respect and exercises
their constitutional responsibili-
ty to vote. We still teach stu-
dents, right from wrong.
Unfortunately, society is teach-
ing them it's not wrong unless
you get caught.
8. If you could fix or change
just one issue in the school
system and funding is not an
issue, what would that issue
be? How would you fix it
under the current system?
I would fix the "aj\ our siu-
dents dress. I believe \ou need
to dress for success.
Unfortunately, fashion has
more influence.
9. Are teachers burdened
by paperwork? If so, what
can/should be done to mini-
mize it?
Yes!' We have,established a
task force comprised' of teach-
ers and administrators to identi-
fy any paperwork that is dupli-
cated or not essential.
10. How are we going to
negotiate the generation tran-
sition on the administrative
end of the schools?
Wisdom and experience are
difficult to replace. We continue
training and giving experience
to qualified personnel. Every
generation has experienced thi.
same problem. The people who
are contemplating retirement all
replaced people who were irre-
placeable.
11. What should be done
about poor .or ineffective
teachers? How are they iden-
tified?
The union has assured us
poor or ineffective teachers
need to be dealt with. I'm in
favor of working with a teacher
who needs and desires
improvement. If that teacher
fails to respond, then their con-
tract should not be renewed,
period!
12. Should parents be
allowed to choose what school
their child attends? If not,
why? If yes, how would you
execute that?
I do not believe such a pro-
gram is workable in a large
county with schools spread out
geographically like 'ours.
Transportation time alone
would be detrimental.
13. How many hours a
week do you have to devote to
the school board position?
I am a school board member
24 hours each day. I take phone
calls day and night as well as
answering questions any time


7. What is a productive cit-
izen? How do we prepare our
students to become produc-
tive citizens?
A productive citizen is a stu-
dent who. contributes to the
well-being of their community.
By taking ownership of their
community.
8. If you could fix or change
just one issue in the school
system and funding is not an
issue, what would that issue
be? How would you fix it
under the current system?
Better system of communica-
tions between schools and com-
munity.
9. Are teachers burdened
by paperwork? If so, what
can/should be done to mini-
mize it?
Yes. Try to offer'means to
reduce it to free up lime for
other important tasks.
10. How are we going to
negotiate the generation tran-
sition on the administrative
end of the schools?
Try to recruit home grown
students to come back .to
Highlands County, develop into
future leaders to produce next.
generation of leaders.
11. What should be done
about ,poor or ineffective
teachers? How are they iden-
tified?
Evaluate, -then offer assis-
tance to help them improve.

Deadline looming for Wings around the Circle


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Officials of the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce have revealed that

by the time the entries close on
Aug. 31,"'he said.
Some of the individual mem-
bers of McGruffs and the
Florida Cracker BBQ teams
have returned entry forms for
this first-ever wings cookoff.
There will be only two cate-
gories for the judges, barbecue
wings and hot wings.
The five-member judging
panel is an impressive list of
dignitaries including Sebring
Police Chief Tom Dettman,
Kevin Shutt of the News-Sun,
morning disc -jockey John
Meder at 99.1FM WWOJ, Bill
Rettew of the Highlands Today,
and Greater Sebring Chamber
of Commerce Executive
Director Dan Andrews.
Hill said since the event was
announced last month he has
had numerous calls from those'
interested in being the first win-
ner of the event, which he sees
as having statewide and even
international implications.
But primarily, the idea is to
create more interest in down-
town Sebring.
"I \as born in Sebring and I
want to see activities on the
Circle. Food is the kind of thing
that brings folks out," he said.
The contest will be held

Be wary of bees
Special to Ith iNe'as-Sun '
\ Africanized Honhe Bees
"(AHB) -.' also called
__ :"Africanized bees" or "'killer
bees" .-- are descendants of
southern African bees imported
in 1956 by Brazilian scientists
attempting to breed a honey
bee better adapted to the South
American tropics.
When some of these bees
escaped quarantine in 1957,
they began breeding with looal
Brazilian honey bees, quickly
multiplying and extended their
range. In the past decade. AHB
began invading North America.
Africarnzed bees acquired the
name "killer bees"' because
they will viciously attack peo-
S pie and animals' \ ho unwitting-
ly stray into their territory,
often resulting in serious injury
or death.
It is not necessary to disturb
the hive itself to initiate an
AHB attack. In fact,
Africanized bees have been
known to respond Viciously to
mundane occurrences, includ-
ing noises or even vibrations
from vehicles, equipment and
pedestrians.
Though their venom is no
more potent than native honey
bees, Africanized bees attack in
far greater numbers and pursue
perceived enemies for greater
distances. Once disturbed,
colonies may remain agitated
for 24 hours, attacking people,
and animals within a range of a
quarter mile from the hive.
According to the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services without
properly managed honey bee
colonies, agricultural produc-
tivity would suffer and without
the pollination that managed
European honey bee colonies
provide, a third of the food we
eat in Florida would disappear.
What can you do to create a
safer environment?
Teach children to use cau-
tion and .respect all bees and
other insects.
Teach children to notify a
teacher or adult if they find a
nest or swarm.


Eliminate potential nest-
ing sites. .
Check walls and eaves of,
structures.
Close off wall, chimney
and plumbing-related gaps that
are ignore than an eighth of an
inch large.
N* Cover rain spouts, vents,
etc. with an eighth of an. inch
hardware cloth.
Watch for regular entrance
and exit routes used by swarms.

As troubling, Howerton said,
was the difficulty she had in
trying to find out why that as

A situation like this is typi-S

But month' ago Howerton
worried .about how the consis-

the board. "This has been going
on back some years," she said.
"There is a problem. We are
losing employees."
In her role as a,school board
member, in other words,
Howerton felt obligated to look
at the situation more: closely.
Two months'ago she brought
her concerns to the superintend-

Barea currently has three clients that she cooks and
cleans for. doe. errands and laundry and for whom she
handles medicine checks Shirley Magerkurth was
Barea's first client and describes Miagerkurths as "the
perfect couple."
Shirley and Bill NMaerkurth came to Tangle%\ood

Riverside

National Bank

ranked sixth
FORT PIERCE Cindy
Robbins, president arnd chief
operating officer of Riverside
National Bank of Florida.
announced recently that the
American Bankers Association.
in the May ABA Banking
Journal, named Riverside
Banking Company as a "Top
Performer" for'2005, in the pri-
vately held domestic banking
institution group with greater'
than $3 billion in assets.
Riverside ranked sixth
nationally in their category
based upon 2005 Return on
Average Equity results. The
category includes non-publicly
traded banks, thrifts, and hold-
ing companies with more than.
$3 billion in total assets.
Wholly owned financial insti-
tutions that are subsidiaries of
public non-bank financial serv-
ices companies were also
included.
"This ranking reflects two
significant accomplishments.
First, reaching total .assets of
over $3 billion for the first
time, thereby 'qualifying
Riverside for consideration in
this group. Second, the sixth,
place ranking in our first year
of consideration demonstrates
the solid performance and man-
agement of the bank as com-
pared to like size peers from
across the country," Robbins
said. "It's proof that putting
people first doesn't just make
for good customer service, it
also makes good financial
sense."
Founded in 1982, Riverside
Bank is one of Florida's largest
and fastest-growing, independ-
ent and locally owned commu-
nity banks. Riverside cares for
customers by offering banking,
mortgage, trust, and investment

ered with a hometown style of
service. The company has over
$3.75 billion in assets, 54

.. offices, 55 ATMs .and more
than 1,000 employees thiough-
out 10 Florida counties.

Baseball. Some' call it the
quintessential American pas-
time. "Kill the Umpire!"
"Three strikes you're out!"
Both are phrases borrowed
from baseball but used -by
Americans liberally to express
their feelings in other situa-
tions.
Of all the many songs written
about baseball, the most famil-
iar is "Take Me Out To The
Ballgame," which is traditional-
ly sung during the seventh
inning of many games. It took
Jack Norworth 15 minutes to
write the lyrics while'on a train
ride to Manhattan, and Albert
Von Tilzer ,put the words to
music. And the last line of
Ernest Thayer's classic poem,
"Casey At The Bat," is enough
to bring a tear tothe eye of most
hardened sports fans; "There is
no joy in Mudville mighty
Casey has struck out."
Simply put, this is how the
game is played; a bunch of men


Pay attention to

the candidates

Editor:
Election Day is fast
approaching; let's pay close
attention to the news, debates,
etc. Even though %e can't take
news verbatim, we can learn by
watching. Preparation .is the
key.
We do have some' important
issues that need to be
addressed: homosexuality,. gay
marriage, abortion, pomogra-
phy, pedophelia, Social
Security, immigration to name
Sa few. If we listen closely, we
will be able to know who
stands for what hopefully.
As responsible citizens, we
need to take a close look at
each of these.
Immigration is affecting
every segment of our society.
We cannot afford to pay taxes
to take care of all these people.
We are continually building
more schools and still can't
provide the space needed. Our
emergency:rooms stay, full, the
social programs are overbur-
dened and the list goes on.
We are a compassionate peo-
ple, bui our s stem is drastical-
ly overloaded; the laws of our
country are being ignored. We
are allowing some of the very.
things that make this country
great to be broken down. When
we can no longer take care of
our own, we will certainly not
be able to take care of others. It
is completely, out of balance.
There is a legal way to immi-
grate and ,.laws should be
respected and enforced. We-
need a limit on how many are
allowed to maintain a balance.
I truly hope we will elect
leaders that will resolve this
problem with fairness to all.
"God has really blessed me
,not to be on continual medica-
tion, but there should be a limit
on how much these drug com-
panies can charge. It is way out
of reason.
Our Medicare' should be
strengthened as well as the
Social Security system, which
has served us so well for so
many years. Our system does
not need eliminating; it just
needs greedy hands kept out of
the till and all monies kept for
benefits.
Let's all keep our eyes and
ears open and with the help of
the good Lord, try to elect lead-
ers who can and will correct
these problems; so we can all
have a better life.
May God give us. wisdom
. and help us to be an example
for Christian-godly living.

get out on a dia-
mond shaped field
and throw. balls at
each other.
Sometimes one of


the players hits the
ball with a bat, and
it goes flying off into the air. If
it lands in the bleachers among
the fans, they all scramble for it
so they can take it home 'as a-
souvenir. But the rest of the
spectators either cheer or sob as
though their pet dog died, while
the man who hit the ball runs
around the field until he reaches
the. place where he started and
is warmly congratulated by his
teammates.
My favorite team is the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the
first time I saw them play I
became an instant fan. They lost
that day (10-0), but that didn't,
dampen their enthusiasm or
mine. Some thought my choice
was not the best and tried to
convince me to choose another


team by reciting
statistics of their
losses, but I saw a
bright future for
them and have


remained .loyal.
Since 1998 the
Devil Rays have called
Tropicana Field in Tampa their
home. That first year, season
tickets sold out, but later their
popularity began to wane. With
the beginning of the 2006 sea-
son, their new owner,- Stuart
Sternberg, began turning things
around for the Rays, and as a
result of his efforts they win a
lot more games than in the past
and when they lose, it's by a
smaller margin. This is encour-
aging.
According to what I discov-
ered after : !ping in 'baseball
history' on the Web, Alexander
Joy Cartright devised the first
set of rules and regulations way
back in 1845. Unforrunatel~ for
him. in 1907 a special commis-


.


- .


sion concluded, "The game of
baseball was invented by Abner
Doubleday."
However, the original field
designed by Mr. Cartright
remains the same. At least he
can take credit for that.
I prefer to watch baseball on
television, rather than from the
bleachers, because people don't
jump up and down in'front of
me in my living room and I like
the instant replays.
Cheering for a favorite base-
ball team is an American tradi-

ETPS is much

needed relief

Editor:
I would like to thank Rene
Smit and his staff at Personal
Rehab Inc., in Lake Placid; for
the hearing, kind and compas-;
sionate treatment they gave me
,during m\ recent ph sical ther-
apy session.


I suffer from back pain relat-
ed to scoliosis. Previously
received physical therapy sesJ
sons %ere helpful, however not
as effective e as this last course of
treatment. The addition of
ETPS leciric Therapeutic
Point Stimulation) which h is
a combination of -local motor
point, 'trigger point and acuther-
apy point stimulation with a
low frequency current pro-


vided much greater pain relief.
PersonalRehab offers a com-
plete range of physical therapy.
I would recommend them to
anyone needing any type: of
physical therapy.. They can be
reached at 699-6929 in Lake
'Placid or 385-1406 in Sebring.
Do not suffer, gi\e them a
call.

Growing up one-half hour
southwest of Akron, Ohio,
meant seeing the Goodyear
Sblimps travel'overhead often.
These airships from a quieter
era' gracefully made their
way through the night sky
while spreading messages of
import to those of us rooted
to the Earth.
The Goodyear Air Dock is
adjacent to the foot of Derby
Hill, and across the street
from award-winning
Strickland's Custard Stand
(wwvi.siri kldiiii'.inifo.''a7 e cf
m?page_id=1057):
Strickland's always offered
at least J10 flavors of custard
ice cream, made at its shop
while you watched. "The
best custard contains natural
flavorings, has very little air
(which is why it melts so
quickly) and is made in a
machine that gentd churns
the ice cream rather than
whips it. It is dipped by
hand, not swirled (and aerat-
ed) into a cone from a
machine."
After ha\ ing bought \ our
custard creation, you could
stand in the parking lot and
catch up on local e~ ents iith
the hundred, of other con-
sumers flocking to
Strickland's. Or, you could
stroll across the boulevard
and find a grassy spot to sit
and watch the acti\ cities at
the Air Dock and/or Derby

Wilhernine Reimer had lots to celebrate
last Sarurday as family and friends gath-
ered for her 100th birthda\.

Although she used to speak English
fluently, within the past year Wilhemine
reverted back to speaking .German:
Because of her dementia Her son Karl,
of Sebrin.' shared information and sto-
ries about his mother's life
-"She has been a kind mother. She has
been a sweetheart all her life." Karl said
about his mom.. "Eerhone loves her.
She ne\er causes an\ problems. She is a
good woman"
Karl also noted his mother was a fair
\oman. "She alJa\s made sure her
grandchildren got all the same."

never smoked and onl\ drinks an occa-
sional beer. Other than the dementia.

MiH' t Siiii ,o ". .
SEBRING A festive crowd gathered at Cro;wnPointe Sehior
Living Community Monda to celebrate a major landmark in the
life of a tell-loved woman. Beulah MaelGordon Smith became a'
centenarian.
Smith lived those 100 years with strong faith, commitment to
family, ser\ ice to others, and lOts of hard 'iork.
The youngest of eight children, Smith was born Aug. 21, 1906,
and moved to Lakeland from Hertselle, Ala. with her family at the
age of 3. due to her another's health.
Smith was raised in a hardworking farm family where she
helped out. On the farm the family raised strawberries, oranges,
cows, chickens, turkeys and guinea hens.
Being the youngest of all her siblings, she had the privilege of
driving her parents around in their Model-T, as the others had
grown up and moved on and her parents didn't know how to drive.
"She \. as driving when she was only 9," her son, Buddy said.
Graduating from Lakeland High School in 1924, Smith married
her husband Luke in 1927. The couple had two children, Buddy
and Joanna.
"Everybody called them Aunt Beulah and Uncle Luke," Buddy
Smith said, "Even people who weren't related."
Beulah and the children traveled a lot because of her husband's
construction work.
"She' traveled. all over the country so she could stay close to
dad's jobs," Buddy said. "We'd get an apartment, trailer, tent, or
whatever sometimes for a few months --however long it took for
the job. We were pioneers all the way."
In the early 1950s, Buddy said the family built a house on Lake
June in Lake Placid (on property they paid $400 per lot for),
enabling her to stay at home more.
Wherever they lived, Beulah could be found keeping busy tak-
ing care of her children and everyone else around.
Of the family members present at the party, all agreed that one

Spoiler alert!


'Snakes On A


Plane' features snakes on a plane


The great thing about a title
like "Snakes On A Plane" is that
you don't have to ask the ques-
tion "how seriously. is this
movie going to take itself?"
Featuring three of the most
prominent fears snakes, fly-
ing and death the movie
leaves out only public speaking
from this list of farcical pho-
bias. If you wake up in the mid-
dle of the night shaking, haunt-
ed by nightmares of giving a
classroom' speech in. your
underwear, pull yourself togeth-
er. The real question is "how
seriously will you take this
movie?"
"Snakes On A Plane" is such
a blatant, cult, star vehicle that
it teeters on the chasm of B-
movie status. No one could
have possibly carried this
absurdity to term but Samuel L.
Jackson, and it was almost stu-
pid to give his character a name.
"Sam" would have been memo-
rable, but our hero goes by the
handle Nelville Flynn.
Here's the part of the review
where I usually go into a synop-
sis, but if there's ever been a
movie where the premise is
self-evident, this is it.
Like Jules Winnfield in "Pulp
Fiction" or John Shaft, Jackson
is our on-screen cool dude, and
no one delivers bug-eyed, fero-
cious profanity so eloquently.
Flynn is escorting a witness to
Los Angeles, where he will tes-
tify against a murderous crime'
boss.
Like "Poseidon," the film
then goes on to briefly sketch

gets





out the passengers aboard the
flight, urging us to predict who
will be knocked off.
The mobster has released a
clutch of venomous snakes in
the cargo hold of the jumbo jet,
and although the film's token
reptile expert assures us they
don't typically attack unless
provoked, pheromone-laced
Hawaiian leis are driving them

nuts.
Flynn teams up with couira-
geous stewardess Claire Miller
(Julianna Margulies) while the
serpents slither in and. out of
every nook and cranny, forcing
the rapidly dwindling cast into
first class. The villainous vipers
harass a rude Englishman, a
snoozing-obese woman, a randy
young couple who have seclud-
ed themselves in the lavatory
and an airheaded Paris Hilton-
type with a toy dog.
Like a campy horror film,
"Snakes" plays by the rules
defined in the "Scream" frai-.
chise. All characters guilty of
sins carnal and chemical get
their just desserts. while the vir-
tuous and the innocent usually
make it out unscathed.
That's not entirely true. One
little boy suffers a nasty bite on
the arm (the impromptu surgi-
cal procedure is particularly
gruesome), while .the
Chihuahua, well ... let's just say
that pythons like Chihuahuas.
They also like airline pilots, and


the makeshift crew is forced to
perform a crash landing at
LAX.
The producers of "Snakes On
A Plane" have admitted to
adding language and gore to
really clamp down on the R rat-
ing. You'll get no argument
here that it earns it.
It is what it is: a preposterous
exploitation flick with fake-
looking snakes and uproarious
dialogue.
If this is your bag, enjoy. It's
genuinely funny.
If not, bail out.

The way to balance is Jesus


Paul wrote to his young com-
rade Timothy and gave these
timeless words of wise instruc-
tion: "Till I come, give atten-
i ion o reading, to exhortation,
to doctrine" (1 Timothy 4:13).
Later, he would instruct
Timothy to "Preach the word.
Be ready in season and out of
season. Convince, rebuke,
exhort, with all long-suffering
and teaching." (2 Timothy 4:2).
Clearly, Paul was'trying to
impress upon the young preach-
er the need to be balanced in his
work of evangelism. He was to
study, but he wasn't to give all
his time to study. He was also to
exhort others with the words
that he studied. He was also to
make sure that he lived out
(doctrine) the things that he
studied and with which he
exhorted fellow believers.


Likewise, he was to
rebuke and exhort. In
.all- these inspired
admonionisions\e can .
see the underlying
thesis was a sense of
balance.
There. remains a
constant need for dis-
ciples of Christ to
seek for balance in all VER
that we do. Loye for SPI
God must be
expressed by love for VJf
others (Matthew -
22:37-39). Love for Verlor
truth' must be
expressed with the
mind and -disposition of Him
who is the Truth (Joln 14:26,
Philippians 2:5). If we valiantly
stand for everything that is
good and right, even to the
point of sacrificing our very


ILO
In
TAl

C(


lives on the martyr's
altar, it all amounts to
S nothing if we are not
motivated by lo\e (1
Corinihians 13).
Balance is %itally
important to
Christian living.
There is always the
human tendency to
ON S, take reactionary
su. stances towards
those who are clearly
MIN at variance with the
spirit of the New
Carrel Testament. The only
- way< to. avoid this
danger is to examine
each issue, make each decision


and charter each spiritual
course with but.one view in
mind: Where is Jesus in all of
this?
When' we study the, Bible


with "Jesus-colored' glasses,
we will avoid much inconsis-
tency in the way we apply bib-
lical principles on a, practical
level. When our goal is only to; .
be well-pleasing to Him, we
will avoid Wasting our time
answering critics who 'have
nothing to do but point the fin-
ger.
When we ask, "What would
Jesus do in this situation?" we
clearly can not go wrong.
The way-to Jesus is not bal-
ance-the way to balance is
Jesus.

Lake Placid Church of Christ.

Sebring turns



away Lady Red



Devils' upset bid


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING The Avon
Park Lady Red Devils don't
go down without a fight.
Frostproof found that out in
the season opener on
Tuesday, and Thursday night
it was Sebring's turn.
The Lady Blue Streaks
squeaked out a five-game
victory by a score of 25-19,
20-25, 25-23, 12-25 and 15-
12. It was Avon Park's second
five-game loss in as many
matches.
"It is focus and mental
toughness," Sebring Coach
Venessa Sinness said. "It is
hard to stay focused that
long."
After a see-saw third game,
the Lady Streaks certainly
lost their focus in the fourth
game. Avon Park jumped out
to a 14-1 lead behind the
serves of Nataly Berrios and
Danielle West.
Sebring fought back to cut.
the lead to 10-16, but some
powerful serves by Avon Park
junior Missy Lander
answered the Sebring rally.
Lander moved the Devils'
advantage to 21-11 and Avon
Park went on to a 25-12 win


'Avon Park is

real scrappy.'

VENESSA SINNESS,
Sebring coach

with the final point an ace
from Berrios.
Brittany Bullock got her
teammates on track in the
final game with a spike to
open the scoring for Sebring.
The Streaks moved on to a 5-
1 lead, but more strong serv-
ing from West pulled Avon
Park back into the game, at 6-
4.
Hannah Shoop had- three
straight service points to
move Sebring to a 9-4 lead,
but Avon Park answered
behind Kysi Wooden and cut
the lead to 9-8. Sinness called
for a time-out to talk to her
team.
Whatever she said worked,
at least for a while.
On the next point, Selma
Younes and Rachel Ashley
combined for a block. Ashley
then added a pair of hits and

Streaks drop Dragons


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID After a successful first
half, the Lake Placid Green Dragons looked like
the bully on'the block as they started their second
half stretches with some swagger.
Then the laundry came out and the Sebring
Blue Streaks took over as costly second-half
penalties andLake Placid mistakes turned a 16-7
halftime lead into a 27-16 defeat Thursday night
in the season opener for both junior teams.
Daniel Burnett thundered for 143 yards 6n 12
carries and three touchdowns, including a devas-
tating 75-yard gallop for Sebring, and the Streaks
managed to minimize their second-half miscues
just enough for the victory.

had a sensational night had several plays not been
erased with flags. A kickoff return for 60 yards
was called back and a touchdown run for 58
yards was deleted because of a clipping penalty.
Yet another clip took away a,.15-yard scamper
from the halfback.
The Dragons struck first in the first quarter
after recovering a Sebring fumble. Employing
nothing but the running, game, Lake Placid
moved the ball 40 yards in nine plays capped by
a 1-yard Navhri Brown. touchdown run. Lake
Placid opted for the two-point conversion on both
of their touchdowns, succeeding twice.
Sebring answered with the first of Burnett's
three touchdowns. set up by a Jamelle Fletcher

History Lesson
15 Years Ago
August 25, 1991: The golf-
ing cliche "drive for show
and putt for dough" took a
beating~in the 14th Barnett
Bank/Highlands Sertoma
Golf Tournament at
SpringLake Golf and
Country Club. The drives
off the tee of Wes Fisher
and Chip Neptune were like
money in the bank in the
scramble format of the
two-day tournament. The
Fisher-Neptune team fired
an 11-under-par 61, includ-
ing five straight birdies
ending their round, to win
the scramble portion of the
tournament by one shot
over the team of Mike Carr
and James Shondel, who
fired a 62. In third place,
one shot back, was the
team of Charley Hansen
and Mike Cleghorn, who
carded a 63.

DROP
Continued from 1D
pass to Caleb McGee that put
the ball at the 1- yard line.
Lake Placid's second and
final touchdown of the night
came through the air. Zack
Camble rolled to his right and
fired a strike to Avery Young for
the 20-yard score.
The' second half .was a much
closer physical contest than the
score might indicate, but as flag
after flag kept crippling the
Dragons momentum, it became
clear the more disciplined team
would come out on top..
As the third-quarter -horn
echoed into the night sky,
Fletcher rolled to his right and
found Gus Williams for a 14
yard touchdown pass. A missed
extra point due to a botched
snap, Sebring kicker Austin
Brady's only miss of the night,
left the score 16-13. .
Lake Placid fumbled the ball
right back and Sebring wasted
no time as Burnett added his
S75-yard bolt down the sideline


SCOiT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Zack Reynolds jumps on a fumble for Lake Placid Thursday.


to put the Streaks up for good. .
After Burnett's last score-
made it 27-16 with the clock
winding down, the Dragons
tried frantically to punch it in
one 1ast time. A nifty 15-yard


pass from Camble to Young had
Lake Placid scrambling back to
the line of scrimmage, but time
had expired and the long-wind-
ed referee whistles signaled the
end of the game.
