AVON PARK With Tom
Macklin formally resigning as
mayor in order to join Max
Linn's gubernatorial campaign
by running for lieutenant gover-
nor, the political order at city
hall shifts slightly.
City Manager C.B. Shirey
explained that with' Macklin's
resignation, the city( charter
requires the deputy mayor to
take over the mayor's .duties
and responsibilities.


Shirey said Macklin is
expected to resign after
Monday night's city council
meeting.
That means that as of
Macklin's resignation, deputy
mayor Sharon Schuler becomes
mayor for the duration of
Macklin's term of office.
As it happens, both. Macklin
and Schuler will be up for re-
election in 2007.
The three remaining council
members Doug Eason,


Brenda
Gray and
George Hall
- are all up
for re-elec-
tion this

cycle and
have quali-
fled for the SCHULER

eral elec-
tion.

CLARIFICATION


Sunshine Citrus Nursery is
under a state-directed quaran-
tine following the Aug. 29 dis-
covery of canker. The affected
business is not 'Sunshine
Nursery, 817 U.S. 27 South, as
.reported Friday ,in the News-
Sun. The latter is a retail nurs-
ery that focuses on landscaping
whereas ,the Sunshine Citrus'
clientele is primarily grove
owners., ,
The News-Sun regrets this
error and is happy to set the
record straight.


In Friday's edition, an article
on drug testing in ,the three high
schools inadvertently omitted
one category of student liable
for the test. Students who
appear to be under the influence
also may be tested.
Tests quickly show a result.
For legal purposes, results at'
the school will be termed nega-
tive or non-negative. Only after
a test has been examined by a
review officer, will a positive
result be recorded. -

there are three challengers qual-
ified as well (there had been
four challengers, but Willie B.
Jenkins has withdrawn) -
Doug Barnard, Ed Dickerson,
and Joe Wright.
Because Schuler is now
mayor, a deputy mayor will
have to be picked by the city
council from among their own
to replace her. That means an
additional councilman will have
to be 'elected this year, because
the city charter requires a
mayor, a, deputy mayor and


three council members.
In other words, instead of
selecting the two top vote get-
ters in the city election, the
:three top vote getters will be
chosen in order to make five.
Shirey said the only issue not
entirely clear was the matter of
public notice. The city attorney
is researching whether, and
when, and how, the election
changes should be advertised.
Calls to Macklin and Schuler
were unreturned.


County reviews



Ernesto response


By .KEVIN i SHUT .
News-Sun
SEBRING In a meeting
that lasted 40,' minutes-
Thursday, Highlands County
staff discussed their handling of
Tropical Storm Ernesto.
According to minutes record-
ed by administrative aide
Michelle Drake, County
Administrator Carl Cool noted
that though the storm wasn't a
major event, the county was
able to exercise its Emergency
Operations Center.
The meeting apparently was
separated into two parts -
What went right? What could
have gone better?
Though the notes in the latter.
section are longer than the for--
mer, the suggestions for
improvements, centered around
items that can be tweaked to
improve the *emergency
response system rather than an
overhaul of any given part.
County staff (who have spe-
cific roles. during emergencies)
and participating or interested
members of the community
suggested changes such as
ensuring that shelter patrons
have a means to receive timely
situation updates; installing
wireless Internet to .county
.buildings: investing ifi air con-
ditioning at the pet shelter at
Avon' Park Holiness Camp
(which was not used during
Ernesto); and advising the pub-
lic that medical care is not
available at standard shelter
facilities. :
Cool and Emergency
Management Director Bill
Nichols were not available'
Friday for comment.
"I think I was the only one
who wasn't a county 'employ-,
ee," Preston Colby said. "That's
because they don't really want
criticism."
Colby, 'who founded and

"The Card Shoppe"-
GREETING CARDS
12 for $OO


operates Florida Public Safety,
said his company's main
income source is the military,
followed by work he does for
the Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
Colby criticized the county's
fax and.e-mail notification sys-.
tem, which it used during
Emesto to send periodic public
service announcements to the
media and service agencies.
"In 20041 I asked Bill Nichols
to take me off the fax notifica-
tion and put me on e-mail noti-
fication," Colby said Friday,
explaining that two different
public information officers had
,assured him that he was trans-
ferred to e-mail.
Corine Burgess. the county's
current public information offi-
cer, 'said several subscribers
contacted her Aug. 29. telling
her that theN weren't receiving
the e-mails.
The 'News-Sun, .during
Ernesto, received .Burgess'
fa'es but not her e-mail.
Colby said the county sub-,
scribes to a service that isn't
allowing the change over-from
fax to e-mail, and he suggested
that the EOC and county e-mail
are incompatible systems.
"It's -t picalls Highlands
County. do what's eas and it
never works." Colby said,
"alleging that the counts failed
to put properly plan and imple-
ment its emergency manage-
ment plan. "The) put good stuff
together and they send it out.
-But it doesn'tget to' you, how
good is it?"

Two local charities, Brewsters Coffee House

join forces for Highlands County outreach


.Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In creating a
new service to the community,
Bruce Rogers, owner of
Brewsters Coffee. House, want-
ed to use his business venture to
give back to the community. In
an effort to do so, Rogers con-
tacted Richard Reinhardt, exec-
utive director, .Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless Inc., and Jane
Breylinger, executive director,
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity; to assist in bringing,
awareness and .support to the
needs of the homeless.
"I volunteered in a soup
'kitchen not too long ago,"
Rogers said. "I can't understand
why one of the richest countries


in the world has a homeless
problem."
The homeless problem exists
not only in' Highlands County,
but throughout the country.
Homelessness issues are more
pronounced here in Highlands
County because of the desper-
ate need for, transitional and
affordable permanent housing.
Rogers, a mortgage broker
by trade, sees the need for per-
manent housing for everyone,
this includes those on the street.
He is hoping that by creating
awareness of the homeless need-
in Highlands County, other
companies will follow his lead
and support to this worthy
cause as well.
Brewsters Coffee House
offers a variety of specialty cof-
fee drinks, ser\ ed hot, frozen or
on ice. All espresso drinks are
prepared -, ith a signature blend
of coffees developed especially
for Brewsters by CrimsonCup,
an Ohio-based coffee roaster
and espresso bar consultant.
Brewster Coffee House also
serves fruit smoothies, gourmet
teas, chai; Italian sodas.- gour-
met hot chocolate and frozen


cremes..
"Our signature drink is a
Brewsters Mocha. We can make
this drink hot, iced or frozen.
It's made with our custom
espresso blend, milk, white
chocolate, swirls of caramel
and topped with whipped
cream." Rogers said.
Brewsters is part of a grow-
ing network of independent
coffee bars thai participate 'in
CrimsonCup's Quality Certifi-
cation Program. CrimsoniCup
developed this program for
locally oned coffee bars, like
Brewsters, that are committed
to practicing consistency in
their business while enriching
their local communities.
Brewsters is one of three stores
in Florida that participate in this
program.
From 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tuesday, Brewsters will hold its
official grand opening across
the street from Lowe's'at 1905
U.S. 27 North in Sebring. A,
portion of the proceeds will be
donated to the Highlands
County Coalition for the
Homeless. Inc. and Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity.

Department
Special to the News-Sun
The Highlands County
Sheriffs Office has been noti-
fied 'that it has received
approval in two program areas
of highway -safety funds: child
passenger safety and speed con-
trol.
The Child Passenger Safety
Program 'grant will fund the
purchase of. mobile fitting sta-
tion and 300 car seats that will
be taken to public events,
schools, day cares, and remote.
locations where families reside
that might not have access to, or
knowledge of the program that
provides safety seats, educa-
tional materials, and demon-
stration of proper installation.
Robin McIntyre, crime pre-
vention-'specialist said, "Traffic
crashes are the leading cause of
death in children in Florida and
this initiate is a priority\ of the
Community Traffic Safert
Team."
Mclntyre looks forward to
getting the trailer equipped anid
on the' road in the nemt couple of
months.
Sheriff Susan Benton .said,
"Local law enforcement offi-
cers have been enforcing child
restraint tolations. hich has
resulted in an increase in the
number of child restraint cita-
tions. I hope that through this
program we are able to .get the

ling up our kids, saving lives
than issuing citations. Further,
the mobile unit makes this pro-
-gram more accessible for the
entire community."
There is a misconception, that
as long as a child is in a car seat
they are safe, but the reality is
children riding in improperly
installed child restraint devices
and seat belts are four times
more likely to experience
abdominal and or head trauma.
It, takes a certified technician to
teach the technique. There are
several folks in various agen-
cies throughout the county who
will be assisting in the program
along with certified sheriff's
office personnel.
The Speed Control Program
grant is in the amount :of
$25,878 and %will be used to
purchase fi e radar units and
foul laser units. ,..
Benton said. "This request is
in response to the conrunulities'
demand for traffic control."
In the past \ear the number
-of citations increased from
3.016 to 8.068. According to
Major Mark Schrader. this was
accomplished by empo\\ering
the patrol deputies to work on
traffic enforcement utilizing the
minimal equipment that was
eaailjble. Adding these nine
devices will help ensure that
e\erN squad of deputies has
adequate equipment. allowing
for additional coverage and
concentration on speed \iola-
tions ~ within schools zones and
residential areas. while units
continue to work U.S. 27.


According to Deputy J.P.
Fane, it is good, to have both
types of equipment. One is tar-
get specific and hand-held mak-'
ing it more mobile, where as,
the other is a mounted unit and
is a beam that is lane specific.
Which one is used depends on
the work detail.
Benton- said, "Having the
equipment in hand is not
enough; we will continue .to
educate the'public on the dan-
gers that cause traffic related
crashes and fatalities due to
speeding and, aggressive driv-
ing. This project funding will
help us towards accomplishing
.one of'five .agency goals:
Enhance the safety .of
i-ighlands County roadways
through enforcement and edu-
cation. Working to meet these
goals will lead to our vision of a
safer Highlands County."

MEMORIES
Continued from 1A
television set, planes had,
crashed into the World Trade
Center and something terrible
was happening.
Hollinger said the meeting
ended abruptly, with everyone
rushing to the lobby where tele-
visions had been set up.
"Everyone was in shock," he
said. Even knowing that Florida
wasn't under attack, he said,
"everyone just wanted to be at
home."
He made contact with the
district before leaving Tampa to,
be sure that if crisis interven-
tions were needed, it was under
way.
As for the students, a most
unscientific survey found most
of today's high school students,
who were in elementary or mid-
dle school at the time, were
either unconcerned initially -
most had only a hazy idea of
what the World Trade Center
was, or how important or
very confused.
And teacher reactions, as
reported by students five years
later, varied from carefully
ignoring the unfolding event to
focus on normal class work, to


MACKLIN
Continued from 1A
ness would be conducted in
English and municipal docu-
mnients would be printed in
English.
During that time,, Macklin
was inundated with requests to
be on national radio and televi-
sion programs and fielded calls
from reporters across, the state
wanting to know more about
the effort and the reasoning
behind it. ,
Through it all, Linn was
impressed at the mayor's ability
to handle the media while con-
tinuing to articulate the strong
stance against the wave of ille-
gal immigrants that are flood-
ing the country.
Moreover, Macklin's munici-
pal abilities and the understand-
iag of the problems small com-
munities : face. in dealing ,with
state bureaucracies ranging
from the-Florida Department of
Transportation to the State
Department Iof Community'
Affairs drew interest from Linn
whose -stated goal is to "shrink
government and, nullif'v the
control of the special interests
he says now. dominate govern-
ment.
The call to ask Macklin to
run as his lieutenant governor
came Tuesday.
,"I could not have been more
surprised. I would have liked to
accepted immediately but there
were some things I had to con-
sider before I could accept,"
Macklin said.
His greatest concern was for
the city -of Avon Park. Although
he had stated he would not seek
re-election, Macklin still felt an
obligation to his last year in
office.
"'I felt I was leaving them at a
critical time," Macklin said.
Prior to accepting the offer,
Macklin spoke with only a few
close friends, but it was Avon
Park City Councilmen Doug
Eason who helped him make
his final decision. ,
"The one that really con-
vinced me to accept was Doug


teachers who saw the event as
history and turned on classroom
television sets to watch
throughout the day.
Emily Eshelman, now a jun-
ior at Sebring High School, was
in the sixth grade at .Sebring
Middle School.
She remembers another
teacher rushing into the room
and the television being turned
on. When first period ended,
she moved on to another class,
but she remembers televisions
being on all day, even in the
cafeteria during lunch.
"I knew the Twin Towers
were in New York," she said,
"but I didn't know they were
that big, or connected to so
much.
"The hardest part," she said,
"was trying to explain it to. my
little sister who was 3 or 4 at the
time. We finally just said some
mean people had crashed planes
into the two buildings."
Brittany Klobuchar, who
now teaches 11th-grade English
at Sebring High School, was
still working her way through
college in 2001.
Her job was about a block
from the school in Bradenton
where .President George W.
Bush was visiting that brilliant
late summer morning.
"Police came shutting down


the street," she said. "Sarasota
'Airport was nearby with Air
Fdrce One. There was a lot of
commotion, but we had no idea
(about what was going on). My
boss made us watch the news,
which was scary, scary. Being
so close to the president, we
were afraid we might be the
next target."
Cheryl Smith, the reception-
ist at Sebring High School, had
a closer brush with Sept. 11
than most.
Her son, Lt. Col. Rob Smith,
on active ,duty with the Air
Force, had been in the Pentagon
Sept. 10. In fact, he had done
business in the office where the
hijacked jet liner plowed
through just 24 hours later.
Smith said knowing her son
had been in the area, but not
knowing exactly when or if he
was still there, made the day
one of frantic worry.
Kules, for one, worries that
as time passes the seemingly
indelible memory of Sept. 11
will falter'and fade.
"In the beginning we were
alert," she said, referring to ter-
rorist threats. "Now, with time
passing, we don't even act like
we might be attacked again. I,
don't think we should be com-
placent."


SUSAWNFOSTER/News-Sun
Gubernatorial candidate Max Linn speaks to the Ivory Club at,
a meeting last June. It was at this meeting that he met Avon Park
Mayor Tom Macklidi. This week. Linn selected Macklin as his run-
ning mate on-the Reform Part) ticket.,


Easbn. Doug had told me I
could make a greater difference
as lieutenant governor and. if I
didn't accept, I would d regret it
the rest of my life.". Macklin
said .. .
After speaking with Eason,.
Macklin left a, message on
Linn's answering machine that
simply said, "Let's do this
thing." ,
Still, Macklin had to wait
until Thursday evening to get
Linn's reply. Linn had told him
he was considering four other
people for lieutenant governor
but that he was waiting for,
Macklin's answer before mak-
ing his final decision.
The official announcement
came on Saturday at a rally in


Daytona Beach, Linn's reasons
for selecting Macklin were
glowing with confidence over
the mayor's skill in handling
tough situtions. .
"Tom Macklin is the perfect
choice. He had a proen record
of leadership in government
and he has sho" n he has the
courage to stand up for %%hat he
believes in, even when facing
tough and highly controversial
issues," Linn said.
Macklin said they will be
opening a headquarters for the
Max Linn campaign in
Highlands County and anyone
wishing more information can'
call 382-0229 to find out when
and where the opening will 'be
held.

SEBRING When Tropical
Storm Ernesto looked.to hit the
northern :Gulf Coast as a hurrii
cane on the anniversary of
Hurricane Katrina, the
American Red Cross called for
volunteers. to get stationed in
advance.
When the storm instead
looked to hit Florida as a hurri-
cane, local volunteers stood
ready while the American Red
,Cross had semitrailers and
emergency response vehicles
stationed around the state to roll
as soon asithey were needed.
Even when Ernesto weak-
ened into a tropical storm and'
ended up dumping just rain on
parts of central Florida, volun-
teers in several American Red,
Cross chapters, including the
Highlands County Chapter,
stood ready to roll out and
assess damage from flooding,
run phones to give information,
and distribute supplies, if need-
ed. /
The Highlands County
American Red Cross Service
Center called out 67 volunteers
and more than 50 percent of
them responded.. Volunteers
drove out in rental vehicles to-
investigate flooding and possi-
ble flooding in, Venus, the
SpringLake district, Lorida. and
other low-lying' areas.
Fortunately flood damage was
minimal there, as 'ell.

Volunteers did respond to a
call to open storm shelters in
Highlands County, and gained a
high level of respect from coun-
ty government and emergency
management officials.
"They did an excellent job,"
said Art Harriman, service cen-
ter director. "They did what
they were asked, stayed until it
was finished and then helped
with the aftermath."
'Polk County damage assess-
ment crews even rolled out on
Sept. 1 to help the Highlands
County -service center assess,
possible flood damage in trailer
parks and subdivisions. For
now, although there continues
to be flooding on Old State
Road 8 in Venus with one house
affected, arid some street and
golf course flooding in the
SpringLake district, east of
Sebring, no houses have beeh
affected. Red Cross volunteers
continue to monitor the


SpringLake situation, since it
could turn into a health issue as
floodwaters compromise sew-
ers.
As always, the American
Red Cross encourages people to
go through their disaster prepa-
ration and make sure they have
secured their homes against
wind and debris damage,
stocked supplies for during and
after the storm, arranged evacu-
ation or sheltering plans, and
are prepared to offer assistance
in their communities, if called.
More information is available
online at www.redcross.org, or
through your local American
Red Cross office.'

TUFFIN' IT

WITH TUFFLEY.
Christopher Tuttley

Keeping law

and order
There are timines when an
occupation is so complex\ and
intricate. fraught v.iih such dif-
ticult issues that impact so
man', dier'erient people. \ouL
lIsi know- goino in. \ou're
going to lea'e somethingg out.
That absolutely applies to
the life of a police officer.
o which I tr, to describe here
The first thin I learned, in
an afternoon of riding .'%ith
Lake Placid Police Sergeant
Rod Dillinm:. is that there is a
grove. ing professionalism ith-
in police departments in gener-
al. ih. ich began sometime ago.
For example., it used to be
that a promising '.aunig mlan -
because the, were all men -
could apprentice %,ith thie
department so to speak. and
learn on the job. or at the
department' expense.
Those da.\ are gone.
At the le.ist. police officer
candidates are expected to
pass and w% itl competition
being \v.hat it is. pa'-s v. ith fl,,-
ing colors a 960 hour
course at an accredited public
ser% ice academic like the one
" at South Florida Communiit
College. Aw on Park
while e each police force w\ill
ha'e its o'. n iset of rules and
procedures, certain areas have
been careful\ engineered. soo
different police departments. at
different levels ,orf government .

Life filled with


change, challenge


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
LAKE PLACID Except for a
moment so brief as to almost not
coLunt. Rod Dilling has al%%as been a
police officer.
An arid hunter. born and raised in
v. western PennsyllanJa. Dilling began
hi; lav. enforcement career as a game
v. arden there.
Since rransterrng omer into police
vork he has held just about eterN
position. taced just about every kind
iof situation. and is certified to teach
just about eery la'w enforcement spe-
ciah\.
He is a mentor as well as instructor.
h:ho ride' road patrol one da\. and
compiles statistics the next.
He carried in Highlands Count\ in
198S. prepared to go into business
\ iah his father. But the excitement and
regard of a la\A enforcement career
pulled him back.
He first joined the Sebring Police
Department. then mo ed to the
Seminole Reser\ation and worked
%%ith the lat\ enforcement department
there He finally returning to
Highlands Countv and became a
detective with the Lake Placid Police
Department He's been there eter
since
Currently he is Lake Placid's ser-
geant, in charge of field training.
ainong a mi., riad of other duties.
Being a police officer in todaY's
v\orld presents challenges. he said.
Not the least of % which is the challenge
of getting a job.
Screening for police officers is \ig-
orous and intense. Dilling said. He
speaks from firsthand kno ledge, as
[lie person % ho does the screening.
Police. departments' ha'e tighter


requirements than the United States
president% does. lie said. with a
wicked laugh.
He said one chief v.ould permit
someone who had experimented with
marijuana before [urning IS to apple
for a sworn position. But if a person
were 20 or older, he considered then-,
an adult..and eten a puff at a part\
would be enough to disqualifN them.
NMost important. Dilling said. -%ere
people who could practice being neu-
tral. fair and impartial Ar the same
time. he said with emphasis, a person
can't be too much of a social worker.
"Especiall\ in child abuse cases, or
alleged rape cases.'" he said. The offi-
cer has. to be cold -b. .khich he
meant not pulled in emotionally so
he or she can collect evidence and sort
out true facts.
T\o areas departments traditional\
don't explore, but Dilling feels strong-
1\ that they should, are dining ability,
and \nuing ability.
Dillng said lie would prefer being
able to ride w ith an officer candidate
for a dai to see %%hat their habits are.
Do the\ tailgate' Speed' Dri'e too
slow ? It's critical to know. he said. and
often too late when he finds out.
Just as important as drit ing skills.
are itine skills. Not onlr does a
police officer ha\e a lot of recordkeep-
ing to do. it is all a matter of public
record and subject to appraisal in
court.
A poorly written report could lead
to a guilt_ parts escaping justice, or an
innocent person being snovwed und&r.
Report writing is so important it is
covered in most police academy\ cur-
nculum. but that doesn't mean. Dilling

Continued from 11A-
said, that every candidate
writes in a way that can be
understood.
Today, the occupation of
police officer .is considered
more professional than ever
before. Even sgo, the drive to
require college degrees has,
slowed in recent years. ,
Dilling said this is partly
because' the kind of people
attracted to police work are
action oriented; many are not


willing to wait through four
years of book v. ork.
That doesn't mean police
officers don't get training.
The old days where men
were trained on the job are
largely over. Lake Placid, for
example only accepts applica-
tions from men and, women
who have completed a public
service academy.
Police departments will cus-
tom train their officers in their
own methods.
Typically. new, police offi-
cers make in the low $30,000.'

There is an increasing effi

The second thing I learned
almost as quickly. was some
what humbling and a little
scary, in an Alfred HitchcocI

Having been a public sch(
teacher, and hat ine covered
The School Board of

years, I thought I had a gooc

I knew, in other words. jus

same. is.
Only I really\ didn't.
Because I had never really
considered just how a\wesonm
police power is.
Here's Hitchcock's twist -
he said once, words to the
effect, that policemen are
frightening because they \\ei
the onl\ people who when tl
said, "'come ith me," you
couldn't say no.
That snippet came back tc
me as Dilling described just,
how important maintaining a
corroborated, unbroken chain
of evidence is.
He used the example of a
traffic stop. It's an arrest he
said. catching me by surprise
When a police officer sig-
nals you to get over and stop,
you have to, Dilling explain
And you must produce the
Documents he asks for, your
license, registration and proc
of insurance. And you can't
leave until the officer tells yo
can. An thing less than corn
pliance can result in handcul
and bars.
In other words, because a
S police officer's work can stri
indi iduals of their freedom,
Dilling said. that police office
had best be sure of his or he:
facts.
That is why the unbroken
chain of evidence is so critic
and why police equipment h

calibrated on a regular basis.


The e\ idence must be above

Police work. in other 'words.
r- is often for keeps.
What I remember the most
len riding with Dilling. is how I
b. struggled to keep up with him.
We were both sitting in the
car. By keeping up I mean he
was such a source of informa-
S dtion, delivered with such ener-

Aging can affect getting enough rest


If you've started waking up with the
birds dr even before the birds you
may not be getting enough sleep.
With age, changes in your sleep pattern,
health and lifestyle may contribute to Sleep
difficulties, such as extra-early rising. Even
so, you still require about the same amount
of sleep as you did in the past. The amount
of sleep needed varies from person to per-
son, between seven and eight hours per
night is average.
Identifying and treating the cause of
sleepless or restless nights may help you
get the amount and quality of sleep that you
need. The Mayo Clinic Health Letter lists


three common changes during aging that
can affect sleep:
Normal changes in sleep patterns: As
you age, you spend more time in lighter
sleep. The clock in your brain speeds up,
creating the desire to go to bed earlier, so
you can wake up earlier, too. Try to resist
the urge to retire early. Spending time out-
doors in the evening can help you stay alert
longer.
Changes in activity: Physical or social
activity promotes a good night's sleep.
Being less active can affect sleep.
Changes in health: Chronic pain,
depression, stress, hot flashes, or the need


to urinate frequently can disrupt sleep. So
can some medications, nicotine and alco-
hol.
In some cases, simple lifestyle changes
may result in better sleep. Limit time in bed
to when you're' sleeping. Avoid naps or
limit them to no longer than 30 minutes.
Exercise, but not too close to bedtime.
Limit caffeine, alcohol and nicotine.
If you feel rested and alert' during the
day, you're probably getting enough sleep..
If you're fatigued or ;it's hard to coricen-
trate, take action to-reclaim a good night's.
sleep. If simple changes don't help, ask
your doctor for advice.


Breaking teeth-grinding habit


Special to the News-Sun.
Are you a teeth grinder?
Bruxism, the medical term for grinding,
gnashing or clenching your teeth, is an
occasional problem of little consequence
for most people. But for others, it's a' real
problem causing discomfort or tooth dam-
age.
Bruxism can occur during the do\ or dur-
ing sleep. The tendency to clench or grind
your teeth during the day is increasingly
being viewed as a habit, nothing more. It's
commonly believed that bruxism may be
related to but not necessarily caused by
- stress and anxiety..-
On the other hand, early morning jaw'
pain may be related to bruxism that occurs
during the night. Evidence suggests there
may be a relationship.-between. bruxisms
and temporomandibular joint diSoiders.
Bruxisms may also be an uncommon
side effect of some antidepressant medica-
tions, particularly selective serotonin reup-
take inhibitors. Some are citalopram'
(Celexa), escitalopram (Lexopro), fluoxe-
tine (Prozac), paro\ed ie i Pa\il,) and sertra-
line -Zolofi. ,
The Mayo Clinic Health Letter offers
tips to stop the grind:
Splint: or mouth guard: These dental
prostheses can be worn on the upper or
lower teeth, usually on a ongoing basis.


Your dentist can make a custom-fitted to shed a few pounds, but sometimes, it's


:splint for your teeth. 'Another option is to
purchase a mouth guard from a sporting
goods store. These are less expensive but,
may not be as comfortable as one made for
you.
Behavior modification: -Practice put-
ting your mputh in a neutral position behind
your upper front teeth where its placed
when you say the letter "n." Then separate,
your teeth slightly. Repeatedly relaxing-
your jaw in this way can help break the
teeth grinding habit. Use stickers or other
visual cues in your car, home or workplace
as a reminder to relax your jaw.
Medica.tion: If you wake With pain
from clenching or grinding, certain drugs
can be effective in managing sleep-related
bruxism. They include the benzodiazepine
drug clonazepans (Klonopin, others) and
tricyclic antidepressants such as nortripty-
line (Aventyl, Pamelor, others). If you take,
.an SSRI, your doctor may sutges Jdecrea'-
ing the dosage or possibly taking the
antianxiety drug biuspirone (BuSpar. other'
in addition to \ our SSRI.
Cogniii'ne beh\I ior,theraip\: In some
cases, bruxism may be strongly related to
.psychological stress, so, cognitive behavior
therapy could help.
Curbing Your Appeitei'.-You know
you should cut back on the amount you eat


just so hard.
The Mayo Clinic Health Letter offers a.
few tips that may help. you curb your
appetite and avoid overeating..
Don't .skip breakfast: You'll be less
likely to overeat at lunch' if you have a
breakfast that includes. high-fiber cereal,
whole-grain bread or fresh fruit.:
Eat slo l Savor each flavor and tex-
ture and remember it takes about 20 min-
utes for your brain to receive the signal that
you are full.'
Think small If you ah1 a s eat e\ er) -
thing on your plate, start % ith half the
"amount of food you.usually eat. To make
less food seem like more. have your main,
course on a salad plate or dessert plate.
Eat on]h when -ou are hungry: Stop
and ask yourself v. whether you'ree hungry or
just stressed 01 bored. Then eat- or don't
eat according..
Ride.out the urge: Cravings generally
pass, within seconds or minutes. Do some-
thing unrelated to food until the desire to
eat passes. Exercise is kan especially good
and healthy distraction.
. 1 o '\\ air occasional splurge. An occa-
sional lapse won't hurt you. In the long run,
it will have little impact on your lifetime
plan for controlling your appetite.

blame our politicians when
things go wrong. I do it, you do


it, and sometimes they deserve

destroy us simply because we
are Americans, are helping
those who tried to hurt us.
Sorry if you don't like reading
that, but it's.the truth.
Don't hate people because of

believe Sept. 11 was perpetuat-
ed by The Tooth Fairy and
Santa Claus.

Blame artists

for violence
Editor: .
Blame needs to be placed
where it belongs in regard to
violence. It belongs on those
who glorify gang violence such
as the so-called "artists" who
record songs, and their.produc-
ers, as well as the record labels.
'When cigarette companies
can be sued for causing cancer,
why can't those who cause the
cancer of violence be held
responsible? They indeed are :
creating a culture of violence,
perpetuating thugs and glorify-
ing death. But in reality, they
are getting rich off the-deaths of
our young.
Maybe if these artists are
held responsible for the satanic.
music and songs they sing. they
will then start to sing a different
tune.

to use active runway 22 for
take off. 'Instead of using run-
way 22.that had lights, the pilot
decided to taxi out and takeoff
on the first, runway he
approached., which was 26, that
had no lights. Runway 26 at
Blue Grass Airport is for small-
er aircraft and is only 3,500 feet
long. way too short for flight
5191 to safely clear. This par-
ticular commuter jet with a full
fuel load and 50 passengers and
crew required at least 5,000
feet of runway to safely rotate
off the ground. Runway 22 at
SBlue Grass Airport is at least
7,500 feet long and well lit.
This was the active runway that
morning, not 26.
I duplicated this flight on my
flight simulator and it clearly
shows that the pilots) had
ignored or did not see the large
runway numbers near the
beginning of the runway and
apparently did not notice that
their Horizontal Situation
Indicator and Radio Magnetic
Indicator panel .instruments
.'were both reading a heading of
260 instead of 220 degrees,:
This alone should have imme-
diately alerted the cockpit crew
,that they were on the wrong
runway. Instead, the pilot in


command, as I see it. assumed
that this (w rongly) first runway
he approached was the active
runway and just rolled out for
" takeoff. A fatal mistake on the
part of both pilot and co-pilot.
Both' pilots had been flying
that particular aircraft for some
time,, yet neither' of them,
according to earlier accounts,
bothered to run their checklist
prior to takeoff. If they had
taken the' time to run their
"Prior to Take Off" Check list,
they would have undoubtedly
noticed their runway in error.
Pilot error, 100 percent.
After the crash, it showed the;
aircraft perfectly in line with
the runway 26 some hundreds
of. feet into the fields beyond
that runway where it exploded
and burned. The NTSB recov-
ered the cockpit black boxes.
These cockpit recordings,
along with the statements ofthe
co-pilot may be able to make,
should %erify when this terrible
accident began and who was
responsible. The co-pilot was
the only survivor.
I feel when all the facts, of
,this crash are revealed, it will
clearly show that both pilots
failed to notice they were on
the wrong runway for takeoff.
In other words, they mis-man-
aged their cockpit instruments,
which resulted in this fatal
crash. This obvious cockpit
error cannot be passed off to
anyone but the two pilots.

:Vineyard


changes


era of


music style

By JAN MEROP

AVON PARK The
Vineyard movement developed
in the 1970s and created a new
kind of worship music that did-
n't resemble the hymnology of
most churches.
It "as an era of change in
music sty le and worship. Later
dubbed "contemporary
Christian music" it has been
and continues to be birthed by
accomplished musicians in the
Vineyard churches.
As they meet for practice
and %worship. they birth new
songs some musicians con-
tributing lyrics. others the
musical scores. The songs are
sung in the services.
However, Vineyard music
takes flight from its own
church services to other ven-
ues. Vineyard has the mecha-
nisms in place to get some of
the new worship songs to the
right people; such as, Integrity.
Hosanna! music. Eventually,
thex are sung by noted artists.
Eighty plus CDs have been
cut all songs that have come
out of Vineyard congregations.
In essence. Vineyard has pro-
duced a music industry within
the church itself.
Many will recognize such
titles as "Breathe." "Come,
Now is the Time to Worship"
and others being sung by
Christian artists such as
Michael W. Smith and groups
like SonicFlood. Local radio
stations across the country are
playing Vineyard songs daily.
Many churches incorporate
these songs into their worship
as well.
Recently. folks from
Heartland Vineyard Church
attended a regional Vineyard
conference in Cape Coral.
"'This gave them an opportu-
nity to rub shoulders with
Vineyard pastors from other,
states like Geor2ia. North
Carolina and Kentucky." Gerry
Wohlman. an ordained pastor in
the Vineyard Church. said.
"Also. our worship team lead-
ers attended special classes on
\oice. transitions from key to
key and other types of musical
instruction."
This has ignited a passion in
them to mo\e forward and has
given them access to other
Vineyard musicians. It was
interesting to notice how the
music created by the congrega-
tions from the various states
took on their particular sound:
such as. a touch of bluegrass
from Tennessee.
"Across Europe a Celtic
sound is heard and, we are
thrilled to see a cross-cultural
and cross racial synthesis
through worshipp" Woltman
said.

Heartland Vineyard Church: A



place to- experience worship


By JAN MEROP
Nieu'-Sun rirrespondCnt
AV ON PARK
Shen a small group of Christian
believers desired a specific
type of church in which the\
could worship. grow and reach
out to the community, they put feet to their
desires and contacted Vineyard in hopes to
bring it here.
In response to their request, Gerry
Wolrman. an ordained pastor in the
Vineyard Church, and his "ife Pat %were
asked to come to Highlands Count.\ to
plant a-small church and see if a full-
fledged Vineyard Church would 'work
here.
"'Typically, Vineyard churches thrive in
urban communities. We wondered if a
smaller suburban community like the
(Avon Park) Sebring area \would support
it," Woltman said.
It has taken about three years of prayer
with their core group, talking with people
in the community and starting small home
groups to introduce ne\w people to
Vineyard's mission and purpose. They'\"e
determined that it is indeed viable.
So they're set into motion the mecha-
nisms within the Vineyard denomination
for it to go forward beginning %with the
small core group of believers. Everyone
has a role and feels called to the ministry.
They're poised to take Vineyard's purpose
and mission to Highlands County.
Vineyard has 600 plus churches in the
United States and operates in 12 foreign


countries ,with several hundred in the
United Kinedom alone TheN are a
Christian Protestant organization and its
emphasis is on worship.
"Our purpose is to bring people together
in a church setting where the\ worship
God in song. in prayer and in teaching the
Word of God," Woltman said. "'Our ser' ic-
es draw' people who move w ith music."
The primary means of creating the
atmosphere of worship is mostly through
music. In turn. the Spirit of God is invited
mn through that [worship. Then based upon
the experience of hat happens at that
point. preaching and teaching take place.
Vineyard's roots had its origin in
Calvary Chapel. Though music plays a
large part in Cal\ary's worship serx ices.
the primary focus is on preaching the
Word first. Howe\er. Wolhman said that
when variouss Cal ary pastors and \ worship
leaders came together for Bible study and
prayer groups. music led the \(ay Most
\were dynamic musicians and as the\
would sit and play instruments and sing.
they sensed God's presence in a way they
didn't on Sunday mornings.
They wanted this type of worship to
occur within their congregations.
Eventually. Vineyard became an affiliate
of Cailary until it e%'entuall. spun oft
completely and became its own entity.
Consequently, the sequence and empha-
sis between Calvary and Vineyard differ
Vineyard's worship ser\ ices are centered
on in' iting the Spirit of God in through
-the music. In this context. the pastor


Courtney Allen. ofSebring, kneels beside !Rebekah Wahlgren who are both re-enacting Sampson and Deliah for the 3outh class.


Colton Hensle3, of A'on Park. walks the
character Rover to Heartland Dog Club.
Vion Park, for dog obedience school. Rover.
a Christian dog, visits children at Heartland
Vineyard Church on a "eekl basis to talk
about how he used to be a bad dog and is
no% workingg to be a Christian dog.

allows for God's Spirit to move among the
people who max discern a need. This
would take precedence before or o'er the
preaching if need be, as long as it does not
disrupt the service.
Vineyard is in Highlands County and
has. a unique profile of worship, Woltman
said.
They find themselves reaching out to
the disenfranchised from the church.
"For example." Woltman said. "people
who are not attending any church service
for reasons such as not feeling accepted, to
having been lied to. beat up in some ta\
or who have come out of situations %\here
they've been under overbearing elders"
Vineyard sees itself as an arm reaching
out and drawing these folks into a fellow-
ship where they can reconnect. This hap-
pens first in home groups so that visitors
can plug into a small group of people'and
be introduced to teaching and worship in a
simple, easy format.
It's a come dressed as you are, comrnfo(-
able atmosphere where music and teaching
are simple and down to earth. Eventually,
when they are comfortable, they can take
the hand of someone they now know and'
be introduced to corporate church worship.
"This is evangelism done a bit different-
ly by reaching out through small, dis-
creet, personal contact groups and then
bringing them to the church on Sunda. for

Save those beautiful shade trees


* This is another in a series of
'articles written about the new
area program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods.

Recently I heard a chain saw
roaring just down the block
from where I live. Upon further
inspection I found a neighbor
was having his beautiful shade
trees topped; not a leaf was left
on them and each tree had only
a few short branches left.
Apparently the threat of hurri-
cane damage from falling trees
has created a demand for top-
ping of shade trees. According
to Dr. Ed Gilman, our tree guru
and a professor in the environ-
mental horticulture department
of the University of Florida,


"allowing urban trees to be
topped is misguided and would
set back arboriculture in Florida
30 years."
If you are considering top-
ping your trees to prevent storm
damage please consider that
these trees, especially if they
are natives, have evolved to sur-
vive hurricanes. Topped trees
provide no shade until they fill
out again, therefore creating a
hotter urban environment, thus.
increased energy cost for air
conditioning, more stormwater
runoff, more leaching of nutri-
ents, more carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere, less habitat for
wildlife and they are not attrac- .
tive. Topped trees, are weak-
ened, becoming more suscepti-


ble to disease and
insect damage that
can cause death.,
Many environ-
mentally friendly
practices are avail-
able to reduce tree
damage starting with
proper selection- of .
trees. Some of the GRO
trees that are native
and better able to SEj
withstand wind dam-
age are cabbage Ed.
palms (Sabal palmet- -
to), live oak (Qfiercus
laurifolia), East
Palatka holly (Ilex attenuate),
Southern magnolia (Magnolia
grandiflora) and flowering dog-
wood (Cornus florida).


A


Proper tree place-
ment is another fac-
tor; placing taller
trees away from the
home and power lines
to prevent structural
damage should one
blow over in high
o winds.
Some reduction of
IN ^tree canopies can ,be
SON done using proper
pruning techniques.
yen Stop in at your local
- extension office for
information on prun-
ing landscape trees
and shrubs. They also have a
new brochure from the
University 'of Florida titled
."Assessing Damage and


Restoring Trees After a
Hurricane" which has excellent
information on tree recovery
should they be damaged by
high winds. You may also
obtain excellent information on
urban tree care at the University
of Florida Web site at
http://hort.ifas.ufl.edu/woody/st
ormprep.htm.
Large-maturing shade trees
are a beautiful part of the
Florida landscape. Their bene-
fits far outweigh the possibility
of storm. damage from high
winds.
The Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods program is
being implemented' through
your local county extension
service in Highlands,


Okeechobee and Glades coun-
ties and is partially funded from
Clean Water .Act Section 319
funding from the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.


Ed Ayen is available to
address interested groups such
as homeowners associations,
voluntary organizations and
clubs.. For further information
he can be reached by calling the
Highlands County Extension
Service office at 402-6540; e-
mail at edayen@ufl.edu; or

untangle doctrines that may
have become mixed up in their
minds," Woltman said.
Woltman asked God to
reveal to him what he is to
preach to this particular
Sebring flock entrusted to him.;
And, right now he is going

youth enjoy doing contempo-

CCLA activates,
nearly $4 million
--TALLAHASSEE
S'Students at Florida's communim-
ty colleges gained access
recently to $3.9 million in addi-
tional electronic databases, e-
journals and eBooks to assist in
.learning and research.
The, new resources are avail-
able via LINCCWeb (www.linc-
cweb.org), the \\eb-based
library information portal used
by more than 800,000 commu-
nity college students statewide.
LINCCWeb is operated by the


College Center for: Librair
Automation;; a prograim-of the
. state's Division, of Communit i
Colleges and Workforce
Edjucauon.
The Florida Legislature
appropriated funding for' the
new resources to be shared b\
all : community, colleges.
Representatives from each col-
lege collaborated to select
resources that meet the infor-
mation needs of today's stu-
dents.
"Until now, each college
used local funds'to license
resources .for: its students."
CCLA 'Executive 'Director J.


Richard Madaus said. "Because
of that, students at some col-
leges had access to significantly\
niore'online resources than oth-
ers. This new sitter ide
approach guarantees that e\erN
. student has convenient access
to the same valuablee resources
regardless of college' size or
location. LINCCWeb :is a\ ail-
ahle to students 24 hours a day,
whenever and wherever they
need it.
'"This is a tremendous leap'
forward and a continued indica-
tion of Florida's support for its
coniunit\ colleges. tieu" stiu-
dents and libraries," he added.


How to grow an edible


landscape out of containers


Just between you, me, and
"The Garden Post," I would
like to suggest growing an edi-
..ble landscape in containers.
Now I. am riot crazy, here me
.out. What better way to grow
edible herbs and' vegetables
than in pots. It would be low
maintenance, wouldn't take up
much space, and who needs
volumes of vegetables anyway.
The whole idea of gardening is
for it to be a labor of love, not
more labor than love. Such
small scale edible landscapes
can be practical as well as orna-
mental if properly\ and imagina-
tively done. -
Containers for- your edible
garden can be anything you
have on hand. Just keep in mind
that- the container needs. to be
sufficient durable and large
enough to hold the full\ grown
plant or plants, has adequate
drainage, and is estheticallN
pleasing to the e\e. This is done
b' having different container
heights and utilizing hanging
baskets Don't forget. lou can
also use different plant forms
such as upright, spraw,.ling and
mounding plants to help create
depth and height Leaf texture
and color also ~ ill add depth
and interest.
Another idea for \our edible
landscape is utilizing themes.
This would include herbs. scent
or texture. t \oour favorite %eg-
etables. There is nothing more
satisf.ine than ha ine fresh
\egetables and herbs from \our
own garden. What kind of \eg-
etables and herbs to grow
\ ould depend on the time of the
\ear and \our personal taste.
Before you start planting, fill
\our container, \\ ith soil media
but leave enough room at the
top for watering. Use any of the
prepared mi\es found at your
local garden center or mi\ \our
ow n. Incorporate a slow release
fertilizer of 20-20-20 or ou can
use a soluble fertilizer when
you water sour plants. Since
container depth and amount of
light \ ill dictate the frequency


of watering, here is a
sure method for
knowing when to
water. Stick your fin-
ger in the soil to the
first knuckle. If it is
moist, then you don't
need to water. If it
isn't then you do.
You are now ready
to enjoy the edible lTE GA
landscape you have POS
designed with the
vegetables or herbs, Dian
of your choice. Bon Dilger-J
appetite.

iting the Highlands
County Extension .

tion to help you. suc-

Hamli n. \ho got a d ell-

game. %as nearly\ speechless
because he \as so proud of his
team.

" you. do that in a week, two-days,

:That's because the\ belie ed

"I got.to looking at the ne'% s-

ball team. And ob i':'usl I.
knew..they had a iot of speed
and we had to contain it. The
kids did an excellent job.".
Hamlin also had to alter,his
game plan a bit after Lowe was
injured (6 carries, 27, yards),
and Smith was.knocked out of
the game after gaining 27 Nards
on three carries. Brassell. a lun-
ior. came in and rushed for 66,
yards oneight carries, including ,
a 38-\ard scamper that gave
Sebring a first-and-goal situa-

"And in the first half %\ere

%\e kept losing running backs
and that put us in the position.
% here it limited us on %%hat %-e

little bit.
"The penalties. Lord hate

more. And that'll kill us,
because they brought back a lot


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
alternating mostly between full-
back Jimmie Office and half-
back Onterrio McCalebb. The
Miners scored on their first
drive, moving the ball down to
the 7-yard line; but the Red
Devil defense was strong up the
middle, limiting them to a field
goal.
. Office built the lead to 10-0
when he broke free from 13
yards out on the next posses-
sion, but Avon Park closed the
floodgates from that point on.
For the Red Devil offense,
the running game struggled to
gain momentum all night long.
Held to-only 17 yards on the
ground, it was' clear early that
big plays through the air would
be Avon Park's best option.
Hill dumped a short.pass off
to .'running' back Kaneef.
Caldwell,. who scampered east
and west before taking it 61t
yards for ,an exciting: touch-
down run with 7:59 left in the
second quarter. The pass %as


the longest play of the evening,
followed by a 55-yard pass to
Caldwell that ended with a
fumble recovered by Fort
Meade's Antwon Burke.
Once again, it was the
defense that came through for
the Devils in the clutch. As the
Miners took over hoping to
score with 2:39 left on the clock
in the fourth quarter, defensive
coordinator Jermaine Wilson
paced the sidelines trying to
pump up his squad.
"What I've got going on'the
defense is 17 kids with a young
man by the name of Jermaine
Wilson and his staff," said
Perkins. "They do an excellent

The Red Devils prepare this
week for Frostproof and- the
focus' will most likely be on
adding some punch to a young
offense that has had some diffi-
Sculty moving the ball.
"If you smoke it in the right
direction eventually (the
offense) is going to catch fire,"
, Perkins. said. "Right now it's
just T.K. and the. babies. At
some point it gets better."

"The same thing that's been
happening for three years," said
Maddox, whose team has been
outscored 114-0 in its last three
meetings with Okeechobee.
"They turned on the lights,
those guys hit us in the mouth
arid we laid down and quit."
The night got off to an omi-
nous start for the Dragons when
'Okeechobee. recovered an
onside kick to open the game.
Three plays later, Timmy
Williams scampered in from 32
yards, out to make it. 7-0.
Williams added a 25-yard
catch, getting behind' a pair of
Dragon defenders in the back of
the end zone on a fourth-and-23
play, to make it, 14-0 with 2:36
remaining in the first quarter.
Pryor took over from there,
scoring on runs of 79 and 44
yards to put the Brahmans up
26-0 at intermission.
Okeechobee coach Chris
,Branham arid the Brahmans.
have been waiting for that kind
of game from Pryor.
"We've seen it coming," he
said. "He had a good night
tonight. He's just a great back.
He has very good vision and he
still has a couple more years.
He's only a sophomore, so
we're hoping to continue to get
great things set up for him."
The 'Dragons got inside the
Brahmans' 10-yard line twice


in the 'first half, but failed to
make it to the end zone both
times. After O.J. Williams
returned a kickoff 57 yards,
,Lake Placid faced a first-and-
goal from the 1, only to knock
the gearshift into reverse and
end up 30 yards away from the
end zone after a fourth-down
sack.
The other. scoring chance the
Dragons .had,

courtesy of an
Okeechobee'
fumble, ended
with a fumble

later.

10 yards in the
second half as the Brahmans
finished with 73 yards through
the, air and 391 yards total, one
yard more than exactly 10 times
what the Dragons managed on
the night.
"We've been working on the
passing game a little bit. We
can't just line up and let people
come right at us with eight or
nine in the box," Branham said.
"The quarterbacks and
receivers worked a lot together
this week and they played very
well together."
