SEBRING Build more

Actuall\. according to a
stiudi b', Randall Tratel
M.uketinge the totirists are
already coming. Fine dining
tlit topped their list of what
amenities they'd like to see
Highland. Count', add.
.I'm convinced that ever\
-Almett.ian is tIning a stressed
out. miserable existence." Judy
Randall sjid Thursday during
her presentation to members of
the Touiismt Detelopment
Council. explaining that
Highlands Counti has what
Sacationrers seek "We're seeing
a decline in attendance to
attractions.'"


Instead of Disney World. Sea
World. Cypress Gardens and
Busch Gardens. ira,.elers
increasingly frequent places,,
that offel "'unstructured leisure
tire." said Randall. '. ho owns'
the marketing tirm hiued by trhe
tounsm council to study tisi-
tors' impact here
The study as presented can
be confusing. if not misleading
in some areas. because the data
collected %%as presented as a
one-year snapshot of activity ,
including seasonal oione month
or more i visitors as %ell 'week-
enders.
Some acti itie. such as golf-
ing. appear to hate a less-sig-
nificant impact on tourisn-m than
what hotels offering golf pack-
ages would suggest


The reason, in this case. is
that hotels and motels are
lumped together and the golt
figures are w altered dow. n.
"'When you think about hat,
it night hate been skewed a
bit."- Highlands Cou'intI.
Commissioner Barbara Stew art
said.
The data. however, can be-
retiev.ed indiiLduall', Ste\artX
said, after visiting with Randall

Stet art and commissioner
Andrew Jackson joined 3U-35
members of the toui ism coun-
cil. Sebring and Lake Placid
ofliciil, and others during the
tw o-hour presentation of
Randall's findings
Randall conducted 40 "'inter-
cept" interview ws throughout the


counts in June and 37 telephone
interilens from a pool of 835
inquiries provided by the
tourism council. She audited
the council's operations, etalu-
ated the count 's hotel/motel
in entuor and conducted a "per-
spective of the tourist" recon-
naissance of Highlands Countt.
In addition to comparisons
w ith state and national data,
Randall re% iew ed the marketing,
material used here and recom-
mended a 17-point strategic
action plan.
One of those recommenda-
tions was to increase the tounrst
tax.
"This is money your resii-
dents don't haie to pa),"
Randall said of the tourist ia.\.
which she said is lowa relatit e to


other communities.
According to Ra'indall.
Highlands Count, households
realized a $464 ta\ relief in
20015 $i66 i local sale' ta\
and 39.s in state sales tax.
Don ElItell appeared to
shake his head "ino"" hen
Randall asked hoteliers if
*increasing the tourist ta\ votuld
hurt rentals
"I \as sitting ne\t to a hotel
owner and I tried looking
around: there didn't seem to be
ani shock." Stew.art said "It
bears e\anining "
Sebring councilman and
business owner' John Gilfftin
agreed that iincreasing the
tourist tax is .worth a look, but

Volunteers
needed

AVON PARK A year
after Hurricane Katrina, .
Habitat for Humanity con-
tinues long-term recovery
efforts to help low-income
families rebuild along the
Gulf Coast.
Those living in Highlands
County during' the 2004 hur-
ricane season can sympa- -
thize with those affected by
the wrath of Katrina, to a
certain degree. Some fami-
lies locally were displaced
due to the impact of those
disasters. Local government
and community leaders
sprang into action to provide
assistance to all residents as
quickly as possible, prior to
the federal agencies coming
into the county.
Though Highlands did not
suffer as great a loss as most
families in the Gulf Coast
states, residents found them- *
selves caught off guard and
somewhat ill prepared for
the number of storms within
'that six-week period.
~ Habitat otlici.i jiid ol-
unteers are thankful for all
the assistance provided, but,
the organization still needs
volunteers to provide help-
ing hands to build new
homes for families in need.
Many volunteers who nor-
mally help Habitat have
been diverted to the Gulf
Coast states, to help in those
efforts.
Lowe's and the Pepsi
Bottling Company have
already signed up for work
days this month; but more
hands are needed to provide
this service to the communi-
ty.
It is known that you can-.
n.ot have community without
unity, therefore Habitat is
pleading with every able
bodied person to join forces
with a cooperative spirit and
a common goal, in this all-.
out-effort to eliminate sub-
standard housing. There are
still 20 Federal Emergency-
Management Agency travel
trailers in the county.
To find out more about
this rewarding experience
giving back to "your com-
munity," give a call to the
local Habitat affiliate at 453-
9695.

SEBRING SpringLake
Improvement. District on
Wednesday approved a pay-
ment of more than $70,000 to
cover Sandra Tyrrell's attorney
.fees in its failed eminent
domain bid in May.
On Thursday, Celeste F.
Adorno, Eminent Domain
Bureau chief for- the Attorney
General's office filed a four-
page emergency motion to
modify the permanent injunc-
tion awarded to Tyrrell in 2002.
The window closes today on
a potential revenue source via
$100 million in federal grant
money made available by
Hurricane Wilma for which
SpringLake would have quali-
fied had it taken the necessary
steps to become a member of
Highlands County's Local
Mitigation Strategy work
group.
On Sept. 1, 10th Circuit
Court Judge Ellen Masters
denied the improvement dis-
trict's request for emergency
relief citing, "telling" testimony'
that its attorney fees exceeded
what it spent on engineering
solutions and that sufficient evi-
dence wasn't shown to proe
.that SpringLake residents are at
.greater danger than Tyrrell, who
also lives, within the
SpringLake district.

SEBRING They the
people who believe Jean-
Claude Meus should not be in
prison agree on everything
, but how to get there.
Meus was sentenced to two
concurrent '15-year terms in
September 2005, for causing a
crash on State Road 64 in May
2001.
Nona Moore, 40, and her
daughter Lindsay, 6, were
killed when the tractor trailer
Meus was driving rolled over
on top of the mini-van, they
were in. Meus was convicted of
having fallen asleep at the
wheel and causing.the Moores'
deaths.
What may surprise some is
that many of Moore's family
believe Meus should be free.
They have worked for his
release for years.
The family feels so strongly
in fact that members are terri-
fied of doing anything that
might hurt his current chances'
before an appeal, court.
In response to the call for a
rally Saturday, Dana
Christenson, Moore's sister,
said her family had decided "to
quietly, patiently and persist-
ently wait for the court" to
work through its process "to
free an innocent man."
In fact, Moore's family was,
so concerned about the negative
publicity a large gathering
might cause, Christenson said,
that, "We do not feel that a rally
or demonstration would for-
ward our purpose (the freeing
of Meus from prison). We will

"(SpringLake) could not
obtain permits to construct a
dike, raise a driveway, or force
water north into Arbuckle
Creek," Joe DeCerbo,
SpringLake Improvement
District board president, said in
a June 9 letter to the South
Florida Water Management
District citing a 2002 report
from hired engineer Gee &
Jenson. "(SpringLake) ... wants
to comply with the mandate
within the legislation that creat-
ed us to provide flood control
and because of the current
injunction We need options as to
what can be done."
In July, the district hired a
new engineering firm, Craig A
Smith and Associates.
DeCerbo said Adorno was
asked to be the lead attorney
with Donald Ifemke assisting.
Flooding reached near-cata-
strophic levels in:recent weeks
after more-than-average rains

24-hour period.

adjacent property coupled with
rain prior to and after Emesto


continue to work with the 'legal
system to help Jean-Claude."
Patricia Austin, who said she
was a truck driver herself and
had felt drawn to the Meus case
for that reason when she heard
about it on the news, has joined
the fight to free Meus lately.
Austin has a different take on .
the rally she is instrumental lu
organizing.
"I think it will have a posi-
tive affect," she said.
S"Sometimes things just can't be
done on their own. I think this
is a case where people need to
know and care.
"It's all positive stuff," she
added, referring to the rally and
reading off signs that were
ready to go signs with slo-
gans like, 'America stands for
justice', 'Let freedom ring', and
'We stand with you Jean-"
'Claude'.
"My heart aches for the fam-
ily," Austin said, "I want to do
'the correct thing on .this. The
rally will be filled with prayers,
several pastors will be speak-
ing. I don't want to worry
(Christenson). I can reassure
her that (the rally) will be
peaceful and respectful."
Whatever happens, the Meus
case is now before the District
Court of Appeal of Florida, sec-,
ond division. That court has to
rule on issues having to do with
the trial's process and might
result in the call for a new trial.
Austin said the rally will be
Saturday with the permission of
the Wauchula city .hall and
police department. It will be
from noon to 2 p.m.. at the
Hardee County Courthouse.

wheelchairs firsthand next week Police seeking three robbery suspects


Special to the News-Sun
The Ridge Area Arc Self-
Advocacy Committee recently
elected new officers for their
second year.
The first issue on this year's
agenda is "Sensitivity -
Wheelchair Days." Next week
at the Ridge Area Arc. Day
Training Center, the individuals
served will participate in
groups. They will find out what
it is like' to be confined to a
wheelchair and depend on
another person to take care of
your every need. Henry
Broxton, president of the com-
mittee, knows firsthand what it
is like and will preside over the


program. Broxton will explain'
the program to every partici-
pant. Their aim is to .make
everyone aware of the difficul-
ties not being., able to do things
for him/her self, and to treat
people in wheelchairs .with
respect and kindness..
The committee's next project
will be "Holidays Without
Stress." They want to help their
friends learn coping techniques
so the holiday stress and/or
loneliness won't interfere with
the joy of the season.
Self advocacy is speaking up
for oneself, becoming leaders,
working together, and making a
difference on issues that are


important to each per-on. W\th
these beliefs, the individuals
served by, Ridge Area Arc
formed their committee to
ensure each person is a self
advocate. They believe ini not
letting their difficulties get.
them down or keep them from
\ hat the) are going to be doing.
Most importantly, the group
teaches them to not forget who
they are.
.Ridge Area Arc, 120 W.-
College Drive, is a non-profit
charitable organization that _is
providing a continuum of serv-
ices for individuals with devel-
opmental and other disabilities.

Friday, Sept. 8
Left Trout Lake on FS Road
23. Most of the day was spent
hiking up and around Mount
Adams. Saw a group of snakes
all intertwined on the path.
Mating season? Not sure what
kind, but not rattlesnakes. '
Was sitting having my lunch,
when I heard this loud noise
and saw a brown plume of what
appeared, to be smoke. I stopped
for a few seconds and it started
again. This went on for some
time.
Mt. Adams being a volcano, I
thought it was about to erupt.
After giving it some thought, I
decided it was rock slides.
Whatever it was, I decided it
was best to move on.
Walked a log across a mud
river the color of chocolate.
Later, I reached a water spring
out of an old lava flow clear
and cold.
Saw only one person all day
a lady riding her .horse. We
visited for a while.
.I camped at Midway Creek
alone.
Saturday, Sept. 9
Woke up at 6:30 a.m. to soft
rain on my tent. Zipped up the
tent and went back to sleep until
,7:30. Rain had stopped.
As the day .passed, it got
colder with a strong wind.
Hiking in Goat Rock
Wilderness, there are big rocks
that look like small logs in the
path. VerN difficult walking.,
Beautiful scenery with .val-
leys, waterfalls and trees --
ufitil I got above the tree line.
Dark caught me well above the
tree line. I decided to catnp
rather than try walking in the
dark. Found a small, but not too
rocky place to set up my tent.
The wind was blowing really
cold.,
Nature called about 4 a.m.
and I \ent outside: No wind,
fuLJ .Nwoon and I'Jfe, degrees
_ \iramer. Standing alone on top
of the mouintaiin% \ith a full
moon was so peaceful and
quiet. Special time.

Sunday, Sept.10
Woke. up to a great Sunday,
morning' filled with sunshine;
not as cold as the day before.
; Hiked down to below the tree,
line and found a big white tent
with horses and mules outside
it. No people, up. Must have
been a group up for horseback
riding. The trails can 'be used
for that. People seem to do that
a lot where roads are close by.
Bow hunting season saw
two hunters with bows. Said
they were hunting elk. Sure


buy supplies. Had to replace the
tips on in\ hiking poles. Rocks
had worn them down.
According to the Pacific
Crest Trail Web site, there is a
big fire at Stehakin, .and the
town is being evacuated. They
bused all hikers there back to
the trail. Not sure what to do
\tith anr supplies I shipped
there.
.The fire is still burning the
last 40 miles. Haye no idea at
this lime what I will do at the
end; Would be sad to hike this
far and have the last 40-60
, miles closed.
, Some hikers say they will
hike through fire or riot. I
hin1k that is c laz\ If the trail is
closed I Will honor this.
I rested today, bought sup-
plies, did laundry and will head
back to the trail tomorrow. I ate
two pounds of rice plus slaw
and potato salad for dinner.
Should be enough meat to last a
few days. ,
Weather said- rain at the
lower elevations with show at
the higher ones ,on. 'Thui;qday.
Guess winter is coming. ,


hope they can tell me from an
elk. '
I was walking along and.
heard this great noise in the
woods. Had no idea what it, was
until I saw. a. group of long-
haired white goats. Guess that's
why it's called the "Goat Rock
Wilderness."
Hiked all da\ with' a great
view of Mt. Rainer. Reached
, White Pass on U.S. 12 about 3
p.m. Notmuch food at the little
gas station. Several hikers were
there. Some hitched into
Packwood for a room and a hot
meal'. Others stayed at the lodge
and.ate whatever they could get
at the gas station.
Was happy to 'see my. parents
had been to Yakima and bought
ribs and roasted chicken withh
cole slaw and potato salad., We
spent the night at the Sky
Lodge.
Monday, Sept. 11
Started hiking at 730 a.m -
had a 30-mile day planned. It
was mostly :valleys, meadows
and lakes until noon %.-:,II
Saw about 20 bo,. hunter.
all looking for elk. Ne\er sai
an elk, but I did hear one early
in the morning.
Caught up with seven or
Eight hikers.-We all stopped by
the lake for lunch. One -
"Ancient Britt" a 55-year-
old from the' United Kingdom,
decided it was a good time to
take ,a swim in the lake. As is
his habit, he stripped off his
clothes, even though there were
three women present.
The .terrain was a lot steeper
in the afternoon. I completed
my 30-nule hike at Chinook
Pass ait about 6 p.m.

that food and beverages also be
taxed.
"In that situation, I'd have to
look at it," he said, noting that
the tourist tax doesn't affect
local residents whereas a tax on
food and drink would.
Dining, shopping and sight-
seeing topped the list of activi-
ties when outsiders visit the
county 47 percent, 44 per-
cent and 58 percent (respective-
ly) of those surveyed by phone
participated in one or more of
these.
Of those interviewed, half
walked around downtown
Sebring and a third said they
visited Lake Placid's murals
and/or visited Highlands
Hammock State Park.
Forty-one percent went to the
Sebring International Raceway.
"Does it surprise you that
they're shopping that much?"
Randall asked, noting visitors
also "just like riding around and
looking at the lakes."
Dining, shopping and enter-
tainment, or as Randall dubbed
it "shoppertainment," are
key-elements of the village con-
cept that she said would suit the
three cities here well.
"They're going to find it,
either in your backyard or
somewhere' else," she said of
the growing popularity of the
everything-in-walking-distance
atmosphere of villages."
Add a body of water (pond or
lake, stream or canal) to the
mix, she said, and you have "a
people magnet -that will not
end."
Sebring councilman and
business owner John Griffin,
pointing out that tourism peaks
in the winter, said one reason
the lodging tax was implement-
ed was to help all local busi-
nesses in the summer.
He asked Randall how could
the tax be used to accomplish
that.
"I would really worklwith the
three communities to grow and
develop the downtowns"
Randall said. "The thing with
travel and tourism is that you
can alwAys make lemonade
from lemons. This issube"about'

"If they meet us, if they see us,

There's an ill wind blowing and
we're going to hoist the sails
and catch that wind."
The Linn campaign is man-
aged by a very experienced
group who has had success run-
ning third-party candidacies.
Douglas Friedline, Linn's
campaign manager, managed
Jesse Ventura's historic victory
in the Minnesota governor's
race. Russ Verney, director of
operations for Linn's campaign,
helped form the Reform Party
in 1996 and worked closely
with Ross Perot's groundbreak-
ing 1992 presidential campaign.
But Linn did not ask them to
manage his campaign. Friedline

Figuring the 'tax relief?

The economic impact of travel and tourism in
Highlands County for 2005 is $464.33 "tax relief" per
household.
The math:
6,303 x 365 = 2,300,595
Hotel/motel rooms multiplied by days in a year equals
available room night.

2,300,595 x 65.2 percent = 1,499.988
Rooms available multiplied by the 2005 occupancy
rate equals total rooms rented tor the year.

1,499.988 x $216 = $323,997,408
Rooms rented in 2005 multiplied by visitors' average
daily spending equals how much was spent by tourists.

$323,997,408 x 1 percent = $3,239,974
Total tourist expenditure multiplied by local sales tax
equals local sales tax collected from tourists.

$3,239,974 --48,846 households =$66.33
Local sales tax divided by household in 2005 equals
local sales tax "relief" per household.

$3.239,974 x 6 percent = $19.439,844
Total tourist expenditures multiplied by the state sales
tax rate equals state taxes collected from tourists.

$19,439,844 + 48,846 = $398
State tax revenue from tourists divided by the house-
holds here equals the state tax "relief" per household.

$66.33.+ $398 = $464.33
Local and state taxes from tourism add up to equal
$464.33 of "tax relief" per Highlands County household.

Griffin said the study was
well presented and included
data important to help the coun-
ty grow its tourism.
He said the village concept is
already in place in Sebring,
- with its boutiques and eateries.;
"We would like more of the


man who could deliver a third-
party victory.
"The voters in Florida are
looking for something differ-
ent," said Verney, who was
present at Thursday's event.
"Florida is an evenly split state,
with low voter turnout and peo-
ple looking for something dif-.
ferent. I thought if there were a
charismatic and energetic can-
didate that would speak plain
English to thevoters, it could
ignite them.
"I looked into (Linn) and
watched some of his term limit
speeches, and I got very excited
and contacted him. I told him I
think this is the independent
race in the country this year and
I'd like to be a part of it."
Verney also acknowledges
the difficulty in running a cam-
paign against two well-funded,
party-supported opponents.
"Each of our opponents will
raise $30-50 million a piece, so
we can't compete on TV, it's too
expensive. We have to compete

limited customer base of Java

"The biggest problem in
Sebring is getting people to

getting restaurants'that will stay

grass roots."
Getting Linn's name out
there requires a lot of legwork.
This week alone, the Linn cam-
paign made stops in Daytona
Beach, Miami, Orlando,
Tallahassee and Panama City.
"The biggest challenge of the
campaign is making the public
aware that Max Linn is in 'this
race and is a ,viable choice,"
Verney said. "We're giving peo-
ple a third-party choice other
than the same old Republican
and Democratic choice. We're
giving people an alternative."
Verney said that Linn's suc-
cess as a small businessman, his
charisma, and his ideas will get
him elected.
"Linn put a million dollars of
his own money into the cam-
paign, so it's not an unfunded
campaign," Verney said. "And
he's certainly a very eloquent
and motivating speaker."

student held back because so
much work had been missed.
Hollinger and Main made it
clear that students needed good
attendance, habits set early,
because avoidance only gets
worse in high school.
The seriousness of both the
issue, and the proposed solu-
tions, was reflected in how far
some individuals traveled to
attend the meeting, and how
many different agencies sent
representatives;
From Detective Janie
Uglione, of the state attorney's
office in Orange County, to
Gabriel Read, a concerned citi-
zen with -the Optimist Club,
more than 20 people gathered to
brain storm, give advice and
generally keep the progress
moving forward.
In fact, because there ,is a
confused delegation of authori-
ty in truancy cases at the judi-
cial level, and an outdated defi-
nition of what denotes an habit-
ual truant -' 15 unexcused
absences in 90 calendar days -
there is a high degree of frustra-
tion and desire for reform. One
of the first things that needs to
be changed, Hollinger said, is
that definition a student
should be flagged with only
five unexcused absences in 90
calendar days.
Both Senator J.D. Alexander
and Representative Denise
Grimsley attended the meeting.
Actually, Grimsley and her
staff have been working with
the sub-committee, developing

the new language for the state
statutes concerning the issue.
But as soon as the meeting
started, those attending were
warned about how unexpected-
ly complicated and nuanced the
issue was.
Alexander said that proposed
legislation had to be well
thought out and written. He rec-
ommended conferring with the
Florida School Boards
Association for example, and
reaching out to the courts. He
made it clear the work would
take months, not weeks, and
Surged everyone to be patient
and thorough.


stand little chance of victory.
But, according to Verney, the
Linn campaign is different.
"Some (third-party candi-
dates) will run because they
want a newspaper clipping to
give their grandkids," Verney
said, "and some will run
because of one specific issue.
"And some will run because
it's a legitimate opportunity to
challenge politics as usual, and
that's what we have here."
The key to victory, according
to Verney, can be found in the
voter who plans to stay home
on Election Day.
"Winning depends upon
motivating the person who is
not intending to go vote
because they don't like the
choice of the evil of two
lessers," Verney said. "Seven to
9 million people are not plan-
ning on voting in November. If
we can motivate 2 million of
those to vote, we have a chance
of winning."


He warned that language has
to be specific, and proposed
actions clear and precise.
Alexander said educational
issues are taken up by two com-
mittees in Tallahassee. One
looks at the financing of
schools. The other looks at pol-
icy.
He said he had not made a
study of educational policy, but
would familiarize himself, to be
of more help in the future.
One of the most difficult
problems to solve, Hollinger
said, was what to do with par-
ents of minor children who
willfully withhold them from
school.
Judicial responsibilities,
divided between two different
courts, the county and the cir-
cuit, make it often impossible to
intervene, Hollinger said.
Wally Randall, a member of
the school board and a former
child support enforcement offi-
cer, said administrative differ-
ences, agreed to between the
school board and the judge, in


advance, might create an oppor-
tunity for direct action through
a carefully spelled out guideline
the judge could follow.
In the end, the meeting stood
as a progress report.
The general assessment: A
good beginning.
Kevin Roberts, executive
director of the Children's
Services Council, as well as*
director of human services for
Highlands County, was only
slightly disappointed. He had
been hoping to take action to
the Children's Services
Foundation for its endorsement.
Instead he pledged the cdun-
cil to continue the work. "The
priority is the wording," he
said,- "What will work at the
state level." And getting it right
the first time.
That also means collecting
good data, Alexander said, fig-
ures rather than anecdotes, try-
ing pilot programs, and reach-
ing out to statewide, involved
agencies.

Continued from 1A
utilities system it purchased
several years ago. That is slated
to be connected to the munici-
pal system, creating a loop that
extends down Memorial Drive
as far as Valerie Boulevard.
"This fits right in with the
city's master plan," Shirey told
the council right 'before the
members agreed by consensus
to go ahead with the grant
application.
Then-Mayor Tom Macklin
said it was exactly the type of
project the state had encouraged
cities to seek out for such a
grant. Macklin resigned his
position as mayor after the
meeting in order to run for lieu-
tenant governor on the Reform
Party ticket with Max Linn
seeking the governorship.
After the meeting, Randall
discussed some of the reasons
the board had determined to
build a two-story facility.
"Our current facilities 'are
sprawled over the land and that
presents several problems,"
Randall said, pointing out four
main reasons why the board
decided to build' a two-story


facility:
1. More efficient use of the
land. A two-story building takes
up less space and the remaining
land can be used for recreation,
gardens or other types of envi-
ronmental studies.
2. Two-story buildings are
more secure because they have
fewer entrances and exits.
Currently, schools have open-
air corridors and entrances and
exits exceed the number of
classrooms, which makes sur-
veillance difficult.
3. Climate control. A two-
story building needs only one
central heating and air-condi-
tioning unit. Sprawling class-
rooms may require several
units.
4. It saves money because the
school board's architectural
firm already has the plans for
the facility and the board would
not have to pay for the develop-
ment of a new plan.
School board chairman Rich
Norris said School-B has only
been discussed at workshops
and the exact location has not
been determined.
"It could go in east of
Sebring or it may also be locat-
ed more to the south. It
(School-B) is not part of our


five-year work planand we
have other things we have to get
on line before we can take any
action," Norris said.
Tentatively, School-A will be
financed through a $45 million
loan from the state, which is
based on current property taxes.
Shirey said the grant could be
as much as $750,000 depending
upon how many jobs were cre-
ated by the new construction.
Exactly where the water line
will come from has yet to be
determined. Shirey said the city
currently is considering three
options. One would be to
extend the line on Memorial
Drive, which now ends at the
intersection with College Drive.
A second plan would see the
city come down U.S. 27 and
extend service from the main
municipal water system. A third
would be to upgrade the former
Sebring Ridge system and run
that line north.
"We still have a lot of num-
bers to run before we make any
kind of decision on that," he
said.

Sports Editor guess I needed. a break and
wanted to make room for other

The number of people who
shared their thoughts with me
after last week's column on teen

in gear. First, I want to say
thank you for the notes and the
phone calls.
I want to share at least two of
those messages.
Jo Miller said, "I just figured
that all these children running
stop lights or just going through
stop signs was perhaps my

off it is very annoying for me. I
pray for'them to get where they
are in such a hurry to get to. I
am sure it is very hard to grow
up in these days they are living
in.

She was not aware the

others I have spoken to, agree
that driver's education should
be brought back into the
schools. After all, it is a lesson
for a life time.
Larry Pate, another reader
and friend of mine, pointed out
a very startling statistic. Since
March ,2003, when the United
States invaded Iraq, about 2,600
American troops have been
killed in combar and other war-

Received a note from anoth-

It was signed, "The folks

If you are homebound. and

From time to time- I get
requests from readers to reprint
articles from other newspapers.
I would be happy to reprint
many of them, but we also have
to abide by copyright laws.
The latest request came from
Alice Finkelstein, who spends
part of the year in Cottleville,
Mo., and part of the year in
Avon Park. She sent a copy of
an article out of the Community
News, a family owned and
operated news tabloid serving
St. Louis and St.'Charles coun-
ties. The article, 'Rebuilding
Iraq,' tells of work done by the
11th Marine Expeditionary
Unit, which is credited: with
helping bring peace and stabili-
ty to 2.5 million Iraqis in the
nine months it was there,
it is a good read, if you can
find it. As far as I can tell,
Community News is not avail-
able on the Internet.

Deception is tough


Men, what would you do if
Syou woke up the'next morning
.following your'wedding to dis-
cover that you had married the
wrong ,woman, and slept xn ith
her too? How would you react
when :faced,, with 'the
realization that ou can't annul
the marriage because you've
consummated it? Instead, you
are in love with the sister of the
woman you, married. What
would you do? :
Can you imagine' how con-'
fused, helpless and heartbroken
you'd be to knot\ that ,ou can-
not divorce her, because you
fear her father' who is an influ-
ential, powerful and respected
man in the community?
This is a true story of biblical,
proportion. Leah and Rachel
were two sisters who lii ed w ith
their father Laban. As it was
customary in those days, the
oldest daughter must be the
first one to be married.
Tall, ruggedly handsome.
Jacob fell in love with the beau-
tiful, curvaceous, younger sister
Rachel, and asked her father
Laban for her hand in marriage.
Jacob promised that in return,
he would work'as, an employee
for seven years. Laban agreed.
However, he had no intention
of allowing this marriage to
happen. Laban concocted a plot
with his eldest.daughter Leah to
fool Jacob into marrying her,
and she did.
In today's society we'd ask
the question, why didn't Jacob
know that he had married the
wrong woman? .
1. Brides covered their faces
with a veil which shielded their
face.
2. Biblically, sex before mar-
riage is, a sin.
3. Fermented grape juice
turned into wine and served at
weddings could have attributed
to Jacob becoming intoxicated.
4. The deception of his
father-in law Laban. -
Can you imagine Laban rais-
ing his wine goblet in a toast to
Jacob and his new bride, while
conniving?; She hid behind the
veil, sharing knowing glances
with her father. Both of them
might have even ordered
Jacob's wine goblet to be
refilled.


--qv'


Jacob confronted his .father-
in law about the deception.
Without, an apology, Laban
explained to Jacob that it was
their ,custom that the oldest
daughter get married first.
Laban ordered Jacob to contin-
ue the week-long wedding cele-
bration. and told him that he
would have to work an addi-
tional seven years as his,
employee if he wanted to marry
Rachel.
Jacob's love for Rachel was
so intense he agreed to Laban's
-proposition and was given
Rachel's hand in marriage.
Jacob married two sisters.
There are similar incidents
within our society where men
go bar hopping and while alco-
hol induced, take home an
unknown woman. The next
morning, they are shocked to
see what laid next to them.
Women, how would you
react to'such deceptive behav-
ior by' your sister and your
father? How would you feel
knowing that your sister stole
your man with help from
daddy? How would you react?
This. gut wrenching decep-
tion would be overwhelmingly,
difficult to handle. In today's
society the sister wouldn't hang
around, and if she did, it would
mean vengeance.
The indisputable fact is, if
we confess our sin to God and
believe that Christ died for us
we will be saved.-By doing this
we are born again, our minds
are renewed, we have taken on
the full armor of God and is fol-
lowing Christ teachings.
Our lifestyle should be a
reflection of Jesus.

An open letter to Senator
Mel Martinez:
Thank you for your Aug. 1,7-
reply to our letter ofJah. 30.
We, too,'honor our brate mili-
tary and appreciate all. they do
for us. The Avon Park Bombing
Range has been a good neigh-
bor over the years, and worked
with ecological groups to pre-
serve wildlife and plant life on
the range.
We are still very concerned.
however, with the weight of the
proposed bombs that. will be
used in an area that harbors
endangered wildlife and plant
life that can be found no where
else in the world. There is also
a very rapidly growing people:
population surrounding the
range. Do you think the smart
bombs are always accurate?
If the bombs destroy ourt.:
water quality it will also'have
an impact ,on your area of
Florida: and the Everglades.
Please, please bring this to the
attention of Congress and see
that it is debated no\\, before it
is too late.
We cannot fix the water
quality' that is destroyed or
bring back scrub jays, Florida,
panthers or other, wildlife that
becomes extinct. Surely 'there
are other areas of our great,
country that would better suit
the purpose.

Not conducive

to betterment
Editor:
One of my greatest concerns '
is our need to clean up our gov-
ernment, more than ,that, we'
have a, real problem with immi-
'gration of these Muslims. It is
not conducive to the betterment
of our country to have these
people as professors in our
establishments of higher learn-
ing and perhaps, even worse, is
having Islam taught to our
small children. It is my under-
standing that this is taking
place in California already.
One doesn't have to be
exceedingly bright to know that
the formative years of life are
the first few years. Young chil-
dren are very impressionable
and should never be exposed to
this awful destructive teaching.
With this kind of indoctrina-
tion, it won't take long for the
American way of life, to be
completely demolished.
These are very deceitful peo-
ple and we need to take "that
into consideration in our deal-

ond class citizens. ,
When we are dependent on
these people for oil, which is a
necessary component to our
way of life, and we build hous-
es on the farm land to the extent
that we have to import our
food, this takes away our inde-
pendence and certainly makes
us vulnerable for disaster.
We need to remember that
the success of this country is
not our doing but God's and
when we ignore Him and try to
go it alone, we're headed for
disaster.
Chronicles 7:14 tells us to
seek His face, repent, turn from
our wicked ways, then He will
hear from heaven and heal, our
land. Let us all commit our
lives to Him and live daily to
glorify His holy name.
May God bless and guide
each of us ,daily. It is not possi-
ble for us to clean up this mess
without God's help. Live by the
Bible, communicate with Him
daily. Don't ask for what you
want, ask for wisdom to know


His will.

Crist changes

his position

Editor:
Republican candidate.
Charlie Crist just won the
Republican nomination for
governor of Florida. He is a
man who played a leading role
in' the official neglect .that
snuffed out the life of Ternri
Schiavo.
Many Republican activists
have already forgotten Crist's
role in her death. Some "con-
servative .media" outlets even
endorse him, what a shame.
Crist. had the authority to
save Terri's 'life but he worked
to ensure her death. Crist, like
most Republican politicians,
likes to play the role of
"Defender of Life" but actions,
Speak louder than words. .
You can always tell a phony
.on issues by what they do
rather than what they say, so
check Crist's records. Crist is,
the kind of power hungry
politician we don't .need in
America. He will do or say
anything to achieve power.
In 1998 when he ran for sen-
ator he thought it would serve
his. purpose .to be pro-choice,
meaning pro-abortion, 'he lost.


,Now he wants to 'be governor,
he is pro-life.'
He is a whatever- you-want-
to-hear person. I just hope
Floridians see this and keep
him from being governor.

Not much of a

choice is left
Editor:,
In your article, "What Has
Happened to the Election
Process?" by Sandra
Kicklighter, Wednesday, Sept.
13:
Yes, past voters are fed up
with all of the mud slinging,
but I for one, believe most vet-
erans feel that we d6n't have
much of a choice anymore.
Democrat or Republican,
there is no difference between
any of them, they all represent
big business and the wealthy,
not the voter.
Tax breaks for the wealthy,
while the average citizen has to
make up the difference in more
taxes.
Increasing property values-
so they can get more tax dollars
out of the average home owner.
Impact fees, did the voters
get to vote on impact fees? Did
the voters get to vote on base-

ball parks, or skateboard parks,
or more bicycle paths, which all
increases our taxes?
Did the taxpayers (voters)
get to vote on any of the issues
that will cost them more money
in taxes? How convenient.
The candidates all function
by one rule, "If you want to get
along, you have to go along,"
"Don't make waves, don't rock
the boat."
Not one candidate represents
the people. They all represent
big business and the wealthy.
I voted on the absentee ballot
because I do not trust the touch
screen voting machine. They
can be rigged, like the slot
machines in Vegas.
Not one issue was on the
absentee ballot. Why not? Is
this dirty politics or what?


A


Do you still wonder why
most voters don't bother to vote
anymore? Most of the candi-
dates and our government don't
care what the voters want any-
way. They all represent big
business and the wealthy.
Did the voters get to vote on
impact fees? Did the voters get
to vote on property tax increas-
es? Did the voters get to vote on
property value increases?
We do not have a democratic
form of government. We have a
cross between capitalism and
socialism.
In communist Russia, the
government stole the land from
the people. In America, the
government taxes the people
off of their land. So what's the
difference?
Now, do you still wonder
why most voters don't bother to
vote anymore?

Flirting


with filters
Finding a lost computer
document or file is much
easier if you have a clue
what you named it in the ,
first place. Following some
standard naming patterns
will help you maintain con-
sistent control over your
files.
I remember fondly those
English grammar classes
where we had to diagram
sentence structure. The
graphic illustration of the
way a sentence goes together
made sense for me of a very
complex language. When
first starting out creating
folders and files to organize
your docurn-,ents. I would
suggest di agranmming the
structure ot the folders \ou
wish to create. That will
speed your actual process,
considerably. iAs an aside. I
have also created folders in
my e-mail inbo\ in the same
manner and for the same rea-
sons: I can now find emails
quickly because thie\ auto-
maticall\ filter to their spe-
cific folders.) ..
Usinc genealoh.. e-mails
as my exariple. I ha e creat-
ed folders for each f ni\
family surnames I am
researching, as well as spe-
cific e-mail lists to which I
have subscribed. The e-mail
program I use, Outlook
E\pless. allows me to create
rules to filter mn e-niauls
directi, into the folders I"'.e
related I Mhi'light the e-
mail I vwant to tiler. click on
NMessae. then click Cicate
Rule >From MNessage The
Conditions of the Rule is
based on one of the follow -
in- the From line. Subject
line. To line. or Message
Bodi. What er criteria.
-meets otur condJtioin. such
as the e-mail is from a spe-
cific e-mail addies_. that bo\
is check arked and a defini-
nion of the condition is creat-
ed. Then. \iou choose the
AL'tiOl of our rule. such as
mo, inc it to a specific fold-
er. deleting. cop\ ing or for-
;v.arding the e-mail to s-ome-
o. e else The rule %would
look like this. when message

il it[.nt 1. move it to [he
Sunn\Z0__ 221 folder.
Once \ou'%e created the
rule. %ou don't need to keep
recreating it. 'ou also can
modit\ the rule to include
broader distinguishing char-
:cteristlcs. For e\aniple,
under m,. Genealog,,0Ohio
folder. I hate niodified the
ori-inal rule to include e-mail
from ni\ family Web site on

A large benefit oft using
the filtering rules is manag-
ing spam. I ha.e one of rni
rules that contains all of
those distineuishini verbiage
* of e-mails I don't ,.wanl to
receive, such as singles seek-
ing. ntortgages in Sebrinc.
h. hat's mn car aorth, etc.
Those e-mails are filtered to
a Junk folder that I.skim
once a Aeek. Most people
would just delete et ern thing
without looking at it.
Because computers are falli-
.ble, I ha. e t_' at least take a
-ander at those in case there
just might be something
there I really\ "ant or need to
read. It does happen. once in
a great while.

Reflecting on history


Lake Placid Drug Store opens in 1925
LAKE PLACID In 1925. the town of Lake Placid only had electricity% from 6 p m. to mid-
night. That was the year Lee Crews opened Lake Placid Drug.
A vear later, he married Lillian Dean. an elementary school teacher. She was also well know n for -
her homemade pies and home cooking served at the drug store's popular soda fountain:
Crewvs compounded most of his prescriptions of suppositories, powders., syrups and elixirs from
rawt chemicals. He treated both man and beast, and was often summoned from home in the middle
of the night. Although many changes have occurred, his onginal dream of helping patients is still
lovingly nurtured by his two generations of family members, dedicated employees and ne" own-
ers.
Lake Placid Drug Store is at 224 East Interlake Blvd. Telephone 465-2751. or go to its Web site
at ww\wu.refillr\.com. which is current\ under construction. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday
through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

DIVERSIONS




'The Covenant' is so bad you



should rent something this week


I wrote last week's column
brimming with glee as I chris-
tened the fall film season with a
four-and-a-half 'M' "Little
Miss Sunshine" love-fest. After,
that, I went to the Internet
Movie Data Base Web site
'(imdb.com) to look at the
upcoming releases and map out
the remainder of the month.
Like a famished nomad at
Barnhill's, I surveyedthe buffet
of celluloid delights making
note of the most- delectable
entrees.
Oscar regulars Scorsese, De
Palma, and Ridley Scott all
have new films on the way.
Robert DiNiro, Meryl Streep,
Sean Penn, Al Pacino, and
Hillary Swank will be coming
to dinner. There are period-
pieces, quiet dramas, 'psycho-
logical thrillers and political
intrigue epics from here to
December, and it.-looks to get
better and better as 2006 fades
away.
Back-to-back detective sto--
ries were supposed to usher me
into September starting on the
eighth, but "Hollywoodland"
did not make it to Sebring, and
I was forced to choke down one
last bitter spoonful of summer
goo. Flopping down in my the-
ater hair with a "'harrumph," I
defiantly crossed my arms in a,
quiet tantrum. How could
"Hollywoodland," the No. 2
movie in the nation, not show at
one of our theaters? Even
before the projector kicked on,
"The Covenant" didn't stand a
chance.
For starters, it's,far too simi-
Jar in style and ineptitude to

imagine.
There's the blue-eyed cutie-
pie (Laura Ramsey), a mysteri-
ous, dark-browed hero-type
named Caleb Danvers (Steven
Strait) and his crew of Ivy'
League warlocks with soap
opera names. The guys are the
descendants of the Ipswich
colony, a dwindling gang of
witches with ill-defined pow -
ers.
A new boy comes to town
with a lust for power looking to
knock off Caleb and absorb his
magic. Their eyes, flash yellow
and after that, all bets are off.
They can create spiders,
reassemble Mustangs, pull
telekinetic pranks on unsuspect-
ing coeds and throw blobs of
watery ... energy, I guess. It's
never really explained and you
never really care. Even the cli-
mactic duel is a "Matrix" rip-
off snoozer.
So for something different,
I'm recommending a DVD
rental this week in lieu of "The
Covenant."
Rent "Brick," starring Joseph
Gordon-Levitt of "3rd Rock
From the Sun" fame. It's a grit-"


ty detective film set in a subur-
ban California high school. It
centers "on Brendan (Gordon-
Levitt) and his murdered ex-
girlfriend Emily (Emilie de
Ravin). The script is taught, the
dialog is quick-paced and
loaded 'with 1940s Bogart-style
lingo, and the characters are
clever and engrossing. The con-
ceit is so stylish and unique that
you completely lose yourself in
Sits \ ord and forget that you're
Snatching high school students.
Released in 2005, it's the
best film I've seen in 2006.
Comparing "Brick" to "The
Covenant" is like comparing a
gum-drop to prime rib.

than a loving family. But this is
a transition. The Duncans seem
accommodating and I.think
we'll have a good relation-

Fellow employee Doroths
Day has been a clerk for 15
years. Although Dick Baker
has only worked there three
years, he came to them out of
retirement after 50 years as a
practicing pharmacist. '
Duncan's son-in-law, Sach.
Bralts is the business manager.
He was v. ith Eckerd 15 years
as district manager of 30 to 40
franchise stores. "'I could tell
which o- ners really cared It
was obvious from their
employees' attitudes, and een
the cleanliness. Those things
are w hat set Lake Placid Drug
apart. It's still a family phar-
mac> and a meeting place.

Stidhanm's are sticking' around
to see that we do." Bralts s.aid.
"'M\ wife Carin received her

ness at Florida State and is


now attending the University
of Florida Pharmacy School
which she'll complete in three
years. First she was a Seminole
and now she's a Gator. She
gets grief on that, but she sup-

past president of Florida

imsped here 10 years ago to
work for the Duncan's as their
managing pharmacist. He is
not only a third-generation
pharmacist, having operated
his ow n business for 20 years,
but his w ife and son are also
pharmacists.
"I met the Stidhams years.
ago in connection with.the
association. They have always
set exemplar> standards
throughout the .taie as-, to how
a community pharmacy should
be run. I'm excied about the
blending of both of these com-
panies and honored .that the
Duncans included me Our

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
September 14, 1986:, It
was as if the lape of the
1985 Avon Park-
Okeechobee game was
replayed at Memorial Field
in Avon Park as the bigger
Brahmans scored early and
coasted to a 14-0 win Just
as they had in the previous
year (a 17-8 Okeechobee
win), the Red Devils played
respectable football after a
shaky start but had trouble
scoring. Okeechobee barely
outgained the Devils. 166
yards to 153, but Avon
Park had nothing to show
for three trips nside the
Brahmans' 15.

College Football


It's time, Gators

The date was Dec. 1, 2001. To borrow a line from Don
McLean, that was the day the music died in Gainesville,
although nobody knew it at the time.
The Florida-Tennessee game is always supposed be in
September. That year, however, due to the 9-11 attacks,
the game was played at the end of the regular season.
The Gators came in 9-1 and a win would have propelled
them into the SEC Championship game and a likely shot
at the national title in the Rose Bowl.
KEPING Florida had won 12 of their last 15 against Tennessee.
S *nI u The game was in The Swamp. It was all set up for the Gators W
SCORE to make a run at their second national title.
*__Instead, Travis Stephens gashed the Gator defense for 226
Scott Dressel yards and Tennessee stopped a two-point conversion in the final
-.. two minutes to win 34-32.
Turns out that was Steve Spurrier's last game in The Swamp, at'
least while wearing a Florida visor. The Gators would go on to kill Maryland in the Y
Orange Bowl in January, and a short time later, Spurrier left to seek his for-
tune (misfortune, as it turned out) in the NFL.
And Gator Nation has never been the same.
Ron Zook followed with three straight five-loss seasons, and Florida
hasn't even sniffed the SEC title game since that fateful December
night.
Gator fans everywhere have to agree that that's been way too long
,of a drought. This is the 100th year of Florida football, and it feels
like it's been at least that long since the Gators were on
top.
Urban N'Meer said la;t year it was time
for the Gators to "take back the Sv. amp "
Now, it's time for them to take ba k
the SEC. And to do that. the\ ha' e to
start Saturday night in Kno\ ille. Tenn,
against those same Vo\'blnteers.
We \%ere spoiled. Gator fans. In the
1990s,, Fire SEC tiles and a national
crow. n % ill do that It's eas\ to forget
just how\ far the Gators came under the ,
Sisored one. The four seasons before
his arrival %ent 6-5. b-6. 7-5, 7-5.
That's 21 losses.
It took Spurrier's Gators until his
ninth seasonto lose that nan\ game.. .'.
By that time, an\ UF loss-was viewed
as an upset and sent Florida fans into 1a
frenzy. 1 ..
After the old ball coachpacked up
his golf clubs and left tou n. new Gator
tans found out just '.\ hat those of us. -
who hae been around for a while thit theoi\. assuming there \ il be S.00tO orange-
already kne' losing, especially in Sure, the offense looked good against and-blue-clad maniacs rooting for the

After bad start, Red Devils are rolling


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK Things have turned
around quickly for the Avon Park Red
Devils.
After an 0-2 start, coach Bobby Barben's
squad has beaten 10 of its last 12 opponents
after taking second in a six-teammatch in
Lake Wales on Thursday.
"We had a rough start. The first niatch
was a tri-match and Sebring beat us by 10
or 12 shots and the other team (George
Jenkins) beat us by one," Barben said.
. "We're playing OK. Wauchula wore us out
(Aug. 31) over at their golf course. We did-
n't play very smart and they played very
well. But other than that, we've been fairly
solid." :
Lake Region that got. the best of the
Devils on Thursday, but Barben was
pleased with the runner-up finish.
"We kind of blew up like we do at times,
but we played petty good considering the
competition," he said.
Johnny Sedlock paced the Devils
Thursday with a solid 40, followed by Clay
Davis with a 42, Chase Hunter at 45 and
Josh Summerfield \ ith 47.
On Tuesday it % as Matt De\ lin % ho led
the way, shooting a 40 at'.Pinecrest to

Sebring coach Wayne
Stapleford is understandably
pleased with his team's
progress, so far this season.
"Everything .as kind of fall-
en right for us," he said. "We
played Olympia, and they were
missing their No. 1 girl 'and it
would have been a much closer
match eif she was there.
Tue'da'. we beat Celebration
and I was, real pleased with
that."
The 171 the Streaks shot at
Celebration on Tuesday is the
kind of score Stapleford hais
been looking for from his
charges, and the %in there,
along with the victory. over
Olympia and a win over

proves the Streaks are going to
be a force at the district tough a-

"We've beaten Celebration
and Jenkins, two teams we've
got to beat to win district, arid
we know we can play with
Olympia," Stapleford, said.
"Our girls are starting to play
better.,
"Our young girls are starting
to come along. Camiel had a 42

seen her playing time increase
this season, put in a qutalit\ per-..
formance. :
Key kills from a T\Iung and
quality play from juniors Tara
Weeks and Darby Underwood
were also essential ito the.
Dragon victory.
"I was very pleased ith the
outcome, not necessarily how
we got there," said Jones.

Sedlock and Devlin to continue to lead the
team the-rest of the season. Sedlock is the
team's No. 1 player, with Devlin, Davis and
Summerfield battling for the No. 2 spot and
Adrian Jahna, Luke Sedlock, Austin Smith
and Chance Hunter all in the mix for the
other spots.
"Johnny and 'Matt are our captains,"
Barben said. "Johnny is really a sold, tough
'player. He's a good pitcher and is used to
adversity, so he's got that mentality. So
does Matt. They hang in their pretty tough.
They didn't play a whole lot of summer
golf. Clay and Austin did, and maybe
they're a little bit burned out right now, par-
ticularly Austin, but -they're both good
young players and I expect a lot from them
in the future."
Barben said he's riot sure what to expect,
when the Devils get to the district tourna-
ment, since their' assignment has been
changed for this, season, t6 District 16-1A,
which includes Lake Placid and Hardee as
w\eli as a host of southh west Florida'schools,
most of them pri% ate.
SWe' 1 play a lot of small private schools
over there in the'district, but we don't play
them during the course of/the year, so we
really don't know What our competition is
over there," Barben said.
