new random drug testing policy taking
effect in all three high.schools.-

first tested: Cox at Sebring High School.
Bible at Avon Park High School and
Hollinier at Lake Placid High School.
"The programs are up and running."
"Hollinger said.
Roughly 10 percent of all the students
in a school's random testing pool will be
selected every week that means seven
students at Sebnng High School: six stu-
dents at Avon Park High School: and
five students at Lake Placid High
School.
Testing das w ill be selected as ran-

time the test is taken x\ill 'ary randomly.
And the names of students tested are
returned to the pool. so anyone might be
picked more than once over the course
of the year.
Only certain students are liable for
random drug tesung. Students vho drive
on campus. athletes, members of extra-
curricular or co-curricular acti\ cities and
students who hate volunteered or
\whose parents had volunteered them for

Those students' names are entered

Lambert and Turner read the immedi-

Tests that show a positive result are

A moment of silence to honor the victims of

hour of music followed, as the third of four qual-
ifying rounds in the Heartland Idol competition

contemporary music. Fi\e more singers sur-ived
the tight competition and advanced to the Oct. 5
semifinal round.

SEBRING The
Highlands CountN Board of
County Conmmissioners
added a pay raise Thursday to
the proposed budget despite
cries from the public that the
28 percent ta.\ increase is too
much for the people to bear.
During the first public
hearing on the proposed
2006-2007 budget, four resi-
dents expressed their concern
that taxes and spending are
too high while e protection of
the "little gu." is too low.
"The state has gone be ond
our means rilht now." said
Victoria Bond, of Lake
Placid. "Who's going to rep-
resent the little gu'? Who's
going to represent us?"
Bond. and others %%ere
unhappy with the ad valorem
decrease from 9 mills to S.5
mills. responded to
Commission Chairman Bob
Bullard's explanation that
much of the counts's epen-
ditures are state mandated.
Her property taxes
increased by S4.L000. Bond
told commissioners C. Guy
Maxcl Edgar Stokes.
Andrew Jackson and Bullard.
Barbara Stew art wasn't
present.
"The state cut your taxes
by pushing dow.,n the obliga-
tion to pa\" for Medicaid. the
juvenile justice system and
other programs. Bullard said.
explaining that the commis-


sion is limited to setting prop-
ern "'Taxes and controlling
spending.
To achieve the level of re\-
enue of fiscal \ear 2005-
2006, the count\ could have
rolled the village back to 6.6.
"I1 look at it as ou
increased it from 6.6 mills to
..5 mills." Bill Sides. of Lake
Placid. said in protest of the
budget as proposed.
Preceding Sides were two
members of the Sebring
Historical Society. Martin
Kahn and its president Rob
Fritz. \\ho asked the board to
increase the historical
archivist's hours to 40. which
is 11 1/2 hours more than
\ hat %\as budgeted
Cool explained that the
position pre iously w\as 20
hours per week. but was
increased for the proposed
budget when the society
asked for an additional 8 1/2
hours.
"You're opening a huge
can of %worms." Bullard told
the commissioners when
NMaxcy. Stokes and Jackson
expressed their support of the
increased hours. "I'm just

SEBRING The primary
election results were all but
official Thursday afternoon.
The canvassing board certi-
fied 13 of the 16 provisional
ballots cast Tuesday, changing
the vote count but not the
results reported Wednesday in
the News-Sun.
Of the three rejected voters,
two,weren't registered and one
was convicted of a felony in
2000 in Pinellas County,
according to Joe Campbell,
supervisor of elections and a
member of the canvassing
board.
"He had a Highlands County
case in which he was adjudicat-
ed as rinot guilty by reason of
insanity," Campbell said, noting
that. Highlands County judge
and canvassing board member
Anthony Ritenour discovered
the disqualifying 'conviction in
Pinellas County.


Andrew Jackson, the third
member of the board, wasn't
present Thursday because he
was taking depositions.
But, with two of three mem-
bers present, the board was able
to move forward with certifying
the ballots.
Campbell said provisional
ballots came after the 2000
election, when phone lines were
so busy precinct workers could-
n't call the supervisor of elec-
tions' offices to verify the status
of a voter who was unable to
produce identification.
To accommodate voters in
such a situation, they're
allowed'to fill out a ballot that
is placed in secure packaging
aind held to a later date.
The voter in question is given
three days to prove that he or
she is legal.
During that time, Campbell
said his office took the initiative
to verify the provisional ballots,


deeming 13 of them as quali-
fied, registered voters in
Highlands County.
In so doing, the canvassing
board opened the ballots sealed
in "secrecy sleeves" and ran
them through the machine that
scans the darkened ovals and
registers votes. -
The provisional ballots were
grouped by the precinct from
where they were collected.

After the board's meeting
Thursday the official results
will be forwarded to the state
election office, where they have
to be by Tuesday.
The only thing that could
change the final numbers ,is if
the convicted felon proves by 5
p.m. today that his 2000 convic-
tiori has been exonerated- and
that he is legal to vote,
Campbell said.
"If he doesn't show up, then
we don't have to have another


meeting," Campbell told
Ritenour, .at the conclusion of
their meeting.
Should the voter appear and
another meeting is required,
Campbell will notice it on the
Government Center's bulletin
board.
As of Thursday, the all-but-
official results for Highland
County:
Republican ticket
U.S. Senator Katherine
Harris, 3,844, to' William
McBride, 2,270;
Governor Charlie Crist,.
4;707, to Tom Gallagher, 2,402;

college, scholarships, $7,500;

School impact fees set at 25 percent


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING As The School
Board of. Highlands County
liaison to, the Impact Fee
Steering Committee, Wendy
Renfro pushed for full imple-
mentation of the fees.
On Tuesday, after months of
discussion, debate and' delay,
the Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners adopt-
ed the schools impact fees;. but
only at 50 percent of what
Tifidale-Oliver and Ass-ociare
said would be necessary to"
build new schools as the, county
grows.
"Portables as a level of serv-'
ice is not acceptable to our,
board," Wally Cox, schools
superintendent, said Tuesday
during a public hearing on,the
impact fee ordinance
Whether to consider the.use
of portables was a factor in two
impact fee studies one by.
Tindale. retained by the county,
and the other by Government
Solutions' Kirk Sorensen, hired
by the Highlands County Home
Builders Association to refute
the former.
Tindale projected the growth
bf Highlands County schools
without the use of portables,
whereas Solutions included
them because they represent the
current service level.
Renfro, speaking Tuesday,
said the.county was on track to
eliminate portables until the


Class Size Amendment, passed
in 2003, mandating a student-
teacher ratio to 24-1..
"Anything less than 100 per-
cent and we're going to contin-
ue to-back up," she said.
At 100 percent of the Tindale
stfidy, potential builders of sin-
gle-family homes from 1,501-
2,499 square feet would have
paid $5,801 for school impact
fees in addition to the seven
other fees of $2,317.28, for 'a
total of $8.818 28. ,,
As passed, future' homeo\i- -
ers can expect to pay $5,217.78
for the same type of dwelling.
It an August interview with
the News-Sun editorial board,
school board candidate Andy
Tuck (who was elected during
Tuesday's primary) suggested'
that school impact fees aren't
the best funding source.
"I don't see our schools
bursting at the seams like some
people seem to be telling us "
he,said.
Citing a grow th rate the pre-
vious 10 years of about 1,000
.children, Tuck predicted there
wouldn't be enough growth to
justify a nek, school.
Because impact fees can only
be used for new schools, not for
improving existing schools, 'he
said whatever money collected
would be tied up.
He'd rather revisit the 1/2
Scent sales tax, which was
defeated recently.


"The public needs to take
ownership of this referendum,"
Tuck said, arguing that reduc-
ing the school ad valorem mill-
age would offset the sales tax
'burden while encouraging
increased spending.
The money, collected from a
1/2 cent sales tax, he said, could
be applied to technological
updates in existing classrooms,
rather than for new schools
which may never be built:

Citrus canker found at nursery


Quarantine in effect
until-affected plants
destroyed, re-inspect
By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sim
SEBRING The owner of a local nurs-
ery confirmed Thursday that citrus canker
was detected among his product.
Floyd Lilyquist, owner of Sunshine
Nursery, 2424 U.S. '27 North, deferred
questions to the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services'
Division of Plant Industry.
"I want to take a few days to collect my
thoughts," Lilyquist said.
Ray Royce, executive director, of .the.
Highlands County Citrus Growers
Association,-said members of the associa-


tion -were notified to check their groves if
they purchased from the nursery in the past
three-months.
Department of Agriculture spokes-
woman Denise Feiber said the nursery is
under quarantine until Lilyquist destroys
the infected plants and a follow-up inspec-
tion shows that the canker is eradicated.
The citrus canker was discovered Aug.
29 during a routine inspection of Sunshine
Nursery. Samples were analyzed and
department pathologists confirmed the
canker Aug. 31, triggering the quarantine.
"I don't know what percentage have
canker or not," Feiber said..
She said the nursery is home to 40,000
in-ground trees and 224,600 seedlings.
"It appears to be a month-old infection,"
Feiber said, explaining that canker can
spread rapidly.
Lilyquist's business is shut down as the


quarantine forbids him from buying, selling
or in any way moving citrus until he shows
the canker is gone and the Department of
Agriculture, lifts the quarantine.
Feiber said her department will continue
to monitor the nursery.
"In the past, depending on how fast you
move, something like that could be taken
care of in a matter of weeks," she said,
when asked what the soonest Lilyquist
might expect to resume operations.
Nurseries will be required to grow citrus
trees in protected structures beginning in
January, Feiber said, explaining that the
legislation was passed to protect the indus-
try not only from canker but other diseases
and the insects that carry them.
"It spreads very easily, especially in hot
rainy weather," Feiber said, explaining the
need for quarantine. "That's were we are
this time of year."

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Where are the young people learning to drive?


As I grow older I find myself
asking certain questions that I
might not have asked before.
One of those questions
comes as the result of having a
young driver in my house now.
Still six months away from get-
ting her driver's license, Briana
is a very thoughtful and cau-,
tious driver. If she doesn't stay
that way, her license will be
longer than six months coming.
But because of her learning
and practicing the rules of the
road I have paid more attention
to young drivers on our high-
ways. In fact, if I didn't have
my eye out for some of these
youthful drivers I might have
had a wreck or two recently.
Take for example the other
day. I was headed to work and
just as I was coming up to the
red light at Hammock Road, a
little white Suzuki Aerio literal-
ly sped up and squeezed in
between me and the semi trailer
to my left. The nose' of my car
X as nearly at the rear end of the
trailer but somehow this young
man decided to take a chance
and squeezed his compact car
right in. Had I not been expect-
ing it, I probably would have

maintained my original speed
and not slowed down enough to
allow his car in.
As I sat there at the red light
with the white Aerio in front of
me, I watched the driver and his
four passengers laughing and
carrying on without a care in
the world. I wondered what
their parents would think had
-they been the ones driving my
car.
I also wondered about the
young man sitting in the middle
of the back seat. He seemed to
be the .one having the least
laugh out of the situation. I
wondered if he was a little.
shaken by his friend's driving


offense.
I have given my daughter
some pretty strict rules to fol-
low when driving. Hopefully
she'll follow them. If not, she
knows she will risk losing the
privilege to drive.
I wonder why driver educa-
tion is no longer a required
class at the high school. I paid a
little extra and sent my child to
the summer class, *but I also
know that not all parents are
willing to do the same.
At first I thought I would
teach Briana to drive myself.
After all, I do a pretty good job
of driving. (I don't want to hear
any snickers from the peanut
factory.) But, after the first c6u-
ple of times -behind the wheel
and after seeing some of the
other behaviors of young driv-
ers, I thought differently. It was
time to sign her up and I'm so
glad I did.
The thought of something
happening to her because of
something. I failed to instruct
her of properly was too much to
think about. I want her to learn
everything she needs to know
before being turned loose on the
roadways!


I know there has been talk of
needing to put driver education
back on the high school curric-
ula and I for one am in total
support. The way I see it is that
some of the "mandatory" class-
es that they are now taking are
things they need just to earn the
"required" credits to graduate.
The classes are not likely to be
much help to them once they
are out of school, unless it is of
interest to their chosen major or
.career field.
However, teaching a young
person the proper way to drive
and all of the rules of the road is
something that will benefit
these kids, hopefully for the rest
of their lives.
Just know that I am one par-
ent who is in total, support of
putting this class back in the
high schools. I'm sure there are
a lot of other parents who feel
that their child's life is more
important than learning a for-
eign language or algebra or ...

Leno answers

his fan mail
Editor:
Remember,, a few weeks
back you had a picture on the
front page of the "Lifestyle"
section of your paper, a picture
of a garage door that was paint-
ed by an artist from. Lake
Placid. It was a picture of an.
old antique Packard car on the
door and also a gas pump and a
garage man next to the car.
After I read the article. I
thought I would send it to Jay
Leno, because I watch his late
show every night and he talks
about all his antique cars .and
motorcN cles he collects.
Last Tuesday night around 5
Sp.m.. my phone rings. A man
asked if I'% as Joan Mix. I" said
"Yes" and he says "This is Jay
Leno." I didn't know what to
say. After a second, I said "you
sound different than when you
are on TV." He says, "Well, it's
really me and I want to, thank
you for writing me and sending
the picture." I asked if he
would, show it on TV because
every Mpnday night he has
"Headlines" he. shows that are
funny and misspelled. He did-
n't think he would show. it
because it has to be funny and
make the audience laugh.
I wanted to keep him on the
phone but I couldn't think of
any .questions and he seemed
like he had other calls to make
so he said "It's been nice talk-
ing to you" and hung up..
So I thought I would let you
know that Jay Leno really
answers his mail. Sometimes
personally. I think he is really a-
funny, man and nice. I have lost
a lot of sleep being up until
12:30 a.m. every night but I go
to sleep with a smile on my
face.
Your picture ended up in
Burbank, Calif., and Jay Leno
got to see it.

Why has not an equal
amount of screaming been

has our media directed its news,
mainly at Israel for bombing

Why not

address issues?
Editor:
A lady wrote the best letter
in the editorials in ages! It
explains things better than all
the baloney you hear on TV.
Recently large demonstra-
tions have taken place across
the country protesting the fact
that Congress is finally
addressing. the issue of illegal
immigration. Certain people
are angry that the United States
might protect its 'own borders,
might make it harder to sneak
into this country and, once
here, to stay indefinitely.
Let me see if -I correctly
understand the thinking behind
these protests.
Let's say I break into your
house. Let's say that when you
discover me in your house, you
insist that I leave. But I say,
"I've made all the beds and
washed the dishes and did the
laundry and swept the floors;
I've done all the things you
don't like to do. I'm hard-
working and honest (exc ept for
when I broke into your house).
"According to the protesters,
not only must you let me stay,
you must add me to your fami-
ly's insurance plan, educate my
kids, and provide other benefits
to me and to my family (my
husband will do your yard
work because he too is hard-
working and honest, except for
that breaking in part).
"If you try to call the police
or force me out, I will call my
friends who will picket your

LETTERS
Continued from 12A
because you have a nicer house
than I do, and I'm just trying to
better myself. I'm hard-work-
ing and honest, um, except for
well, you know.
"And what a deal it is for
me! I live in your house, con-
tributing only a fraction of the
cost of my keep, and there is
nothing you can do about it
without being accused of self-
ishness, prejudice and being an
anti-housebreaker. Oh yeah,
and I want you to learn my lan-
guage so you can communicate
with me."
Why can't people see how
ridiculous this is?! Only in
America ....

Editor:
Thank you to all the voters.

prevail in the Sept. 5 primary
race for Highlands County
Commissioner District 4.
I would also like to thank'my
worthy opponent, Jack Richie,


for his clean, positive cam-
paign. Jack and I both have a
fierce love of Highlands

November general election, I
would welcome his valuable
input to better serve the citizens
of this county.
My apologies to the resi-
dents that I have not yet per-

myself available to organiza-
tions to achieve that goal.
I look forward to serving all
the people -of Highlands

EQIP application deadline Dec. 15


A gallery birthday gift


Special to the News-Sun
A U.S. Department of
Agriculture program can help
farmers and ranchers pay for
conservation practices that pre-
vent erosion, improve water
quality, and provide habitat for
wildlife.
The 2007 Environmental
Quality Incentive Program
application period will remain
open until Dec. 15, according to
Jeffrey Woods, Assistant State
Conservationist for the USDA-
Natural Resources Consei' a-
tion Service in Flrida :
EQIP is a key program under
the 2002 Farm Bill that pro-
vides federal cost-share funds
to working farms and ranches
for conservation improvements.
Like all NRCS programs, par-
ticipation is voluntary.
Woods said for the l.it two
years, the deadline for the pro'-
gram lh.s been in Dec'ember "I
want to make sure tho'e ranch-
ers and farmers who -wish to
participate don't get buN\ with


fall work and miss the deadline.
"EQIP provides incentive
payments and cost-share funds
to private agricultural and live-
stock producers to implement
r conservation practices," Woods
r said. "It pronibtes agricultural
production and environmental
quality as compatible goals.
And, it is extremely important
for producers to note that the
application deadline for the
2007 Program Year is Dec. 15."
According to Woods, the
early deadline is a .Iontinuing
effort to improve the funding
*process.
The accelerated prugrm.nl cut-
off dates'v, ill allow producers
time to, complete practices dur-
ing the first years of their con-
tracts.
The earlier application dead-
line'date N ill help accommo-
date field %kork in preparation
for a project [, be done in the
fall as soon atier the\ finish
with crop' haiet in most
.cases.


"The accelerated process
makes coming, in to our field
offices early to meet with the
SNRCS staff more important
than ever," Woods said. "I
would encourage our farmers
and ranchers to come in and
visit with our staff now. We
know that producers that get in
early have more time to resol\ e
certain program or land eligibil-
ity issues."
EQIP, like tall NRCS pro-
grams, is a voluntary program
that is intended to yield high
quality. productive soils; clean
and abundarit xaier: health,
plant and animal communities:
clean air; an adequate energy\
supply; and %working farms and
ranchlands.

2007 EQIP program. contact

What I

meant was ...
A collection of friends
from different locales were
discussing the pronuncia-
tions of wvords like "'. ash,
oil, push and creek." It was
remarked that many times
one can tell what areas of
the country someone is from
by his or her rendition of the
above words.
We also talked about
some of the phrases we are
familiar with, such as my
grandfather putting some-
thing "in a poke" for us to
carry, %where someone else
might put the same object
"in a sack" rather than a
"bag" so we can "fetch"
something for a "carry -in."
We also talked about "red-
ding" up a room.
Knowing the origin of
some of the phrases we com-
monly use is a fascinating
subject to me, probably
because of my lo\ e of histo-
ry. A Sebring attorney is
responsible for me know ing
the er} mologt of "and the
Creeks don't rise Most
people think this phrase is
discussing the to\w n's water
le\el. It reportedly refers to
the Creeks Indian tribe and
their potential uprising in the
days of settling this country.
I should have knoi\ n that,
being an Ohio girl and all.
See details at lurp://ngeor
gia. oimL'7eteui.\/'03dec.hrnl.
The night before I 'was
lea\ ing for my Ohio week-
end. ms girlfriend called and
asked me to bring my shears
along so I could fix one tuft
of hair that \\as rTusbehav ing
in her'naturally curly hair.
Does it make you nervous to
think someone is going to
use "'shears" to trim your
hair. For me. that word con-
jures up an image of a
sheep's mottled skin or a
- Mohawk hairstyle. Are you
sure \ou trust someone you
don't know to stand behind
you and use shears on you?
One of my professors told
a story of ho'w completely
the commonly accepted
- meaning of a word can
change. She had spent weeks
preparing for a presentation
to a high school drama class.
After a stellar performance.
in her opinion, one of the
students approached her and
told her just how "'bad" she
had been. Mly professor said
she stewed for days after-
w.ards. airingg in her emo-
tional turmoil from anger to
despair in her complete fail-
ure to impress these stu-
dents Finally, in despera-
tion. she confronted the stu-
dent and demanded an
explanation of what specific
points in her presentation
had been so sadly lacking as
to earn a "bad" critique. She
said she wished for a video

MOPS: A place where





mothers can belong


By JAN MEROP
,u -Sun cor espondint1
A new Mothers of Preschoolers year is
about to begin.
Mothers of Preschoolers are invited to
attend the kick-off meeting. Thursday, Sept.
14. Meetings are from 9:30-11:30 a.m. the
second and fourth Thursday of each month
at First Presbyterian Church, 118 N. Oak
St.. Lake Placid, and for the first time, at
Grace Bible Church, 4541 Thunderbird
Road, Sebring (second church on the left).
The Lake Placid group will be headed by
Christi Bobo and the Sebring group by
Heidi Kaisanis. who also is the coordinator
along with a leadership team that has come
together to help her.
Katsanis is the wife of Pastor Andrew%
Katsanis of Grace Bible Church. She initi-
ated the first MOPS group in Lake Placid a
couple of years ago.
"When I first had my daughter Enuly, a
friend 'in Lake WVales asked if 1 was
involved in a MOPS group." Katsanis
recalled. "I'd never heard about it and so I
accepted her in. station to join in a meeting.
I remember thinking that Highlands Count%
needs this."
That v.as January 2004. By September
2004, she had started one in Lake Placid
%%here she lived at the time. This fall will be
the beginning of the third year and Katsanis
is excited about the expansion into Sebring
and the plans they have in place for the
moms.
."The numbers were growing in Lake
Placid and many moms were from Sebring
and Avon Park. So I knew we definitely
needed to start one in Sebring. Having t%%o
groups will encourage more moms to par-
ticipate while not having to travel so far,"
Katsanis said.
With as many as 30 moms and approxi-
mately 20 children some with siblings
already in school or tiny infants sudil need-
ing to be with mom volunteers. known
as Moppets, care for the children. This
gives the moms a two hour uninterrupted
time of fellowship, fun and learning.
Though the Lake Placid and Sebring
groups will be in separate locations, they
will adopt the same theme with a cumcu-
lum for devotion time. The two groups plan
to come together on special occasions.

Purpose and mission
MOPS exists to nurture moms in this
phase of life.
"Sometimes being the mom of
preschoolers can be lonely and confusing."
Katsanis said.
MOPS wants to infuse moms with hope
accompanied by faith. By paricipaung in
ice breakers, everyone is comfortable. They
eat and fellowship together along with
playing games and creating crafts.
In smaller discussion groups the) talk
about issues and topics related to raising
preschoolers all with the goal of helping
them become better women and, in turn.
better moms. Participating guest speakers
cover topics relevant for the moms
"This is a place to make connections and
meet friends," she said.
Since this is an international organiza-
tion, moms who have already belonged to
MOPS in another location are able to con-


Children enjoy playtime under the watchful
care of MNoppets volunteers who babysit

DIVERSIONS


A bright ray of


Every year there is a movie
that serves as the front bookend
for Oscar season. Usually a tad
quirky, often independent and
always unexpected, the film
slaps you out of your summer,
fluff stupor and reminds you
that cinema can be art, not just
amusement. As the serious fare
begins filling up the multiplex-
es, you can expect to do some'
actual thinking at the theater, a
welcome treat in early
September.
For 2006, "Little Miss
Sunshine" is that movie. Not
that it's a "serious" movie, just
serious filmmaking.
It would be a disservice not
to start any discussion of this
charming film without herald-
ing the arrival of Abigail
Breslin, the 10-year-old actress
who redefines "stealing the
show."
Watching.a child actor turn in
an unforgettable performance
such as this is a rarity. Like
Anna Paquin in "The Piano" or
Haley Joel Osment in "The
Sixth Sense," Breslin glides
through the movie as if she's
always existed in that world,
interacting with her elder cast-
mates with memorable purity
and wisdom.
Breslin plays Olive, an effer-
vescent little girl who dreams of
winning the ; Little Miss
Sunshine pageant in Redondo
Beach, Calif. Like .the buoyant
garnish in the dry martini that is
her home life, Olive gives color
and Vitality to an otherwise
morose, dysfunctional family.

'Little Miss Sunshine'
.gets





resume, playing Oli e's father,
Richard Hoover, a motivational
speaker and self-help author.
who spews pompously opti-
mistic psychobabbleeven as his
career swirls down.the drain.
His world-weary father (Alan
Arkin),' frantic wife Sheryl
(Toni Collette) and hopeless
mute son Dwayne (Paul Dano)
are joined in their cluttered
Albuquerque home by Sheryl's
brother Frank (Steve Carell).
Frank arrives from the hospital


after a suicide attempt with a
broken heart and an expression-
less disdain for life.,
Olive receives word that she
is a finalist for the pageant and
despite the family's myriad of
problems, they pile into the
lemon-yellow Volkswagen van
for an impromptu vacation. .
The film cashes in on, its
most bankable resource, the
brilliant chemistry of the
ensemble cast. The most pre-
cious moments are. captured
when everyone is present,.
whether they're arguing over a
chicken dinner or bickering on
the road.
Richard's lip-service obses-
sion with winning is contrasted
by the omervhelming gloom of
the group as the situation goes
,from bad to worse.
Despite the somber themes of
suicide, drug-use and depres-
sion, Olive's glowing soul
steadfastly remains the family's
touchstone. Exuding an imper-
vious warmth, Breslin forces
the audience to smile and truly
feel when she's on the screen.
The script is driven by the
kind of subtle comic dialogue
that seems only exists in the


world of independent film and
with every stop on the road to
California, we come to know
the Hoovers as intimately as
two hours will allow.
There are several moments in
"Little Miss Sunshine" that are
sure to etch themselves in your
memory and inspire a grin long
after you've 'left the theater.
From a heartfelt motel scene
with Olive and her grandpa
about inner beauty to the dance
scene at the end that achieves
that elusive laugh/cry sensation,
this indie gem is a diamond in.
the rough.
Don't miss It, as it's sure .to
garner some Academy acco-
lades in March.

It's here! School bells are,
ringing and our children and
teachers are back in the class-'
room. I suppose'it is good for
.all concerned to get that "sum-
-- mer break" from the rigors of
school life. Yet the school of
life doesn't take any breaks,
does it? Someone once wrote,
"Life is the schoolroom of eter-
nity." That may be very true.
But what exactly are the "cours-
es" taught in God's school of
life? They may sound very
familiar to those who have,
headed back into the 'class-
rooms at our schools. .
1. Psychology (study of the
mind and behavior):'We all rec-
ognize that the heart (mind) is
the basis of behavior. Proverbs.
4:23 tells us that "whatsoever a
man thinketh in his heart, so is
he." Jesus told us in Matthew
12:34 that from within comes
evil thoughts. So we must learn
to have our hearts cleansed..
James 4:8 says, "Draw nigh


unto God ... and .
purify your hearts."
Obviously this will
result in pure behav-
ior.
2. Arithmetic (the
science of numbers):
We are told in God's
word to add to our
life faith, virtue,
knowledge, temper- VERI
ance, patience, godli- SIR
ness, brotherly kind-
ness and love, based VffI
on 2 Peter 1:5-9. God -
commands us to sub- Verlon
,tract the sins that "so
easily beset us,"
based on Hebrews 12:1. In 2
Timothy 2:15, it informs us that
we must rightly divide the word
of truth. And God expects his
faithful children to multiply by
bearing fruit in his Kingdom,
according to John 15:8.
3. Language (the science of
speech): The Bible emphasizes
the beauty of good speech. "A


LO




C


j-; word fitly spoken is
like apples of gold in
pictures of silver,"
according to
Proverbs 25:11. Jesus
is no doubt the
^ teacher of this
course: "And all ...
wondered at the gra-
cious words which
IN S proceeded out of His
|AL mouth," based on
I Luke 4:22.
MIN 4. History (the sci-
- ence of the past):
3arrell Tremendous lessons
- are provided for us in
God's word from
which we can learn from the


successes and failure of others..
"Now these things were our
examples," based on 1
Corinthians 10:6.


human relations): The Bible is
plain and clear on the manner in
which we treat one another. We
are to forgive others, according
to Matthew 6:14, we are not to
judge others unrighteously,
according to Matthew 7:1,
God tells us that we are to
love- our neighbor as ourself,
according to Matthew 22:29,
and the answer to it all; "do
unto others: as you would have
them do unto you," based on
Matthew 7:12.
Let's all be studying and try-
ing to succeed in the school of
life. Remember, there will be a
"test," based on Romans 14:12;
2 Corinthians 5:10.
There will also be a wonder-
ful graduation for all who will
listen and obey: the Master
Teacher, according'to Matthew
7:24-27; John 14:1-3.


By learning from the experi- Verlon Carrell is the minister at
ences of others, we can live a LakePlacid Church of Christ.,

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Sept. 9. 2001: Both Avon
Park and Sebring battled
valiantly in losing efforts
over the football weekend.
Lak'eland's George Jenkins
rushed for two quick
touchdowns in a span of
- 15 seconds late in the first
half to topple the Blue
Streaks 17-7. Up in Fort
Meade, the Red Devils
played much tougher than
they had the week prior (a
40-20 loss to Hardee) but
still ended up on the losing
side of a 16-13, rain-
soaked battle with the
Miners.

15 Years Ago
Sept.8, 1991: After the
unbeaten South Florida
Community College Lady
Panthers volleyball team
traveled to Lakeland to play
two games with each of
their conference oppo-
nents, they returned to
Avon Park for a match with
Webber College. The lop-
sided win over the Lady
Warriors left the Lady
Panthers with a mark of 3-
0. The win raised the sky-
rocketing expectations
even higher for a team that
finished the 1990-91 sea-
son ranked fourth in the
state and had spent a week
ranked in the top 10
nationally

Coach Speak
Earnest Perkins: "I level like we're
ready to step up a little more
offensively. Fort Meade on film looks
pretty potent and, of course, we're
not going to run from anybody.
They're very quick on the defensive
side of the ball. and wilh us still
struggling on offense, especially the
interior line, we're hoping to make
some adjustments to hopefully keep
up with the speed. Especially the
outside speed. I've got a feeling that
defensively we'll match up with
anybody in Highlands County"

make them stronger. They try to get
