September as a national day of remembrance
for military and civilian personnel listed as
prisoners of war or missing in action.

Woody's gets new owner


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Sebring resident Logan Gray, 7, plays a video game called 'Burnout' Saturday morning at his home in
Sebring. Gray said he just got his library card Friday and plans to borrow games from the Sebring
Public Library as soon as they are available.




Library cooperative




to offer video games


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
.SEBRING The Heartland Library
Cooperative already offers much more than,
books to its patrons. DVDs, videos, and CDs are
all available to rent.
Get ready to add video games to that list.
The library will offer video games for check-
out beginning Nov. 18. The goal, is to draw a
younger crowd into see what the library has to
offer.
"We lose the middle school and high school
age kids," Gabrielle Turner, technology trainer
for the library cooperative, said. "We're trying to
figure out how to get them in the library"
The library has applied for a grant for funding,
but in the meantime, they need games from the
general public. .
"We're taking donations for games now,"
Turner said. "for anyone %\ ho % ants to drop them
S'offat tie.library.'
.f: '-Newer' *games. fir 's' tims such as the
- PlaySation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and Xbox
360 will be a large part of the program. But dona-
tions of all games, both old and new, will be glad-
ly.accepted.
"Any kind of donation of any kind of game
will help," Turner said.
The video game program will start in the
Sebring branch. If it proves successful enough,
they then hope to expand it to the Avon Park and
Lake Placid branches.
However, non-Sebring residents need. not
worry. The library has a system in place where
people can request materials from other library


branches, and these materials will include video
games starting in November. Upon request, the
materials. from Sebring will be. delivered to
another librarN branch.
The library doesn't plan to loan out game sys-
tems. Turner said they are, however, looking to
hook up systems such as the Xbox 360 and the
PlayStation 2 in the library, so that kids can try
games out before they borrow them.
To kick off the new program, the Sebring
Library will be hosting a lock-in for middle
school and high school-aged kids Nov. 17. The
lock-in, which'will be free, will begin at 6 p.m.
and go until 6 a.m. the following day.,
The library plans to set up gaming systems and
computers around the building during the lock-in
to give the kids a chance to try' out the games.
Then when the kids leave the next morning, they
can check out up to five games.
When the librarN opens at 9 a.m. Nov. 18, the
games that are not checked out will become -part
of the library's general circulation. s
Checking oht' 'games will work the same as
checking out DVDs or videos. Up to five games
can be checked out at a time, and they can be kept
for up to two weeks. After the two weeks, games
can be rechecked.
The library also plans to obtain ever-popular
strategy guides for some of the more complicated
games.
The library's goal is to have 1,000 games by
the time of the lock-in.
"We plan on getting 50 to 100 kids here on the
17th," Turner said, "and we want them to be able
to take five games home apiece."

ent types of entertainment. It's
now time to add comedy to that
list. .
The Four Points by Sheraton
Sebring Chateau Elan is now
featuring Comedy Wedne sda. .
Each Wednesday evening,: the
hotel presents a buffet, fol-
lowed by two comedy acts.

thing for people to have some-
thing to do in Sebring." Shawn
Telesky, the hotel's food and
beverage director, said.
This Wednesday's show will
feature South, Florida resident
Laurie Anne Fondiler. as the
opening act, and Tony Boswell
as the headliner.
Boswell, no stranger to the
comedy scene, began in 1986,
arid has since gone on to per-
form more than 3,000 times,, He
has performed his stand-up act
in cities like Chicago and New
York, and he's been 'seen on
"Comedy 'Central" and in
movies. like "Meet the Parents."
The Comedy Wednesday was
the idea of Reinhard Haubner,
general manager of the hotel,
who wanted to revisit the idea
of a comedy show at the hotel.
'Wednesday's show will be,
the seventh one, and previous
acvt have gone over very well
with the crowd.

the crowd, according to

Night fright with seniors


When the sun goes down, seniors, fears often take center stage


During the day, dementia
regularly sends the 86-year-old
woman into states of confusion.
But at night, her situation wors-
ens considerably.. In the dark,
she is terrified and often doesn't
know where she is or whom
she's with. Across the city,
another woman about the same
age also fears nights. It's then
that she wonders who might
know she's alone and if they'll
break into her house and rob
her.
Whether the causes are phys-
ical or psychological, or related
to diseases .such as Alzheimer's
disease or other dementias,
nighttime can be a frightening
time for seniors, especially
those who are living .alone.
Many of these problems that
occur with seniors at night are
rooted in the physical changes
that take place as the result of
aging. And those issues are
often connected to sleep disor-
ders.
In a 2005 Gallup poll of
1,000 adults over the age of 50,
less than half of those surveyed
(32 percent) reported getting a
good night's sleep all seven
days of the week. And yet,
respondents ranked good sleep
as more important even than
interpersonal relationships.
This Gallup study revealed a
number of factors to explain*
sleep problems including that of
worry, according to. Dr.
Harrison Bloom, senior associ-
ate and director of the Clinical
Education Consultation Service
of the International 1 ,.iigc ii\
Center USA in New York
City. Bloom, a geriatrician, is
interested in efforts to help sen-
iors and healthcare providers
identify solutions to sleep-relat-
ed disorders in older individu-
als.
A local seniorcare company
has discovered that one answer
is companionship. "T7heseniors
- that we serve ofteri face chl-iil-,
lenges at night that can disturb
their sleep as well as their peace
of mind,") said Judy Laws
owner of the Home Instead
Senior Care office serving
Highlands and Polk counties.
"That's why our caregivers are
regularly called upon to provide
overnight care for seniors -to
assist them with the anxiety that
can set in at night." Caregivers
help with various non-medical
tasks such as companionship
and are available daily from a
few hours to 24 hours.
Seniors, sleep problems are
rooted in many sources. "There
are physiological changes
occurring with age, such as a
decreased amount of time spent
in some stages of sleep;" Bloom
said. "And many tend to have
diseases that can make sleep
difficult. For instance, people
who suffer from congestive
heart failure can't rest in a flat
position, and the pain of arthri-
tis keeps some awake at night.
Medications for certain diseases
also can impact sleep, and blad-


10 ways to help seniors

Dr. Sonia Ancoli-Isael. pro-
fessor of psychiatry at the
University of California at Sain
Diego and-director of the Sleep
Disorders Clinic at the Veteieans
Affairs San Diego Healthcare
System, agrees-it's not neces-
sarily the aging process that dis-
turbs sleep, but rather those
changes that accompany getting
older. "In addition to those
medical illnesses and medica-
tions common in older adults,
there can be psychiatric prob-
lems and changes in circadian
rhythms."
: Circadian rhythms are. body

Israel conducted a study five
years ago that exposed patients

homes to either morning- or
evening bright light in an effort
to adjust the body's circadian
rhythms. Both techniques
improved nighttime sleep.
Even though research is help-
iig to identify solutions, statis-
tics indicate that more seniors
are searching for medical reme-
dies to sleep problems.

toms that, in particular, should
not be exaggerated in seniors
who already are confused due
to Alzheimer's disease or other
dementias. In fact, those symp-
toms can wreak -nighttime
havoc in the lives of seniors and
family caregivers, according to
Dr. Sharon Brangman, profes-
sor of medicine and division
chief, Geriatrics, at SUNY
Upstate Medical University in
Syracuse, N.Y.
"I have an 80-year-old
Alzheimer's patient who is very
anxious and nervous during the
afternoon. She then naps in
,front of a television in the
evening and doesn't want to
sleep at night," Brangman said.
"Her husband is her primary,
caregiver, and he's exhausted at
the end of the day. But he's
afraid to sleep at night because
she might wander. When she
goes to sleep, he often lets her
sleep until noon. We've tried to
encourage him not to let her
sleep during the day, and sug-
gested activities for her and
respite breaks for him."
While the issues s.ir, Lndin'j
older adults with dementiia-
related illnesses are very differ-
ent fion- orders and physical ailmentcl,
all of those factors can con-
tribute to the psychological
j.if ie, 1li ,ei e iol' mai y experi-
ence at night. "Many seniors
undoubtedly are anxious
because :he knov it's harder to
reach help at night," Ancoli-
Israel said. "And there's more
time to think about the things
that miglt be ."*-ii, wrong."
That's why companionship
can help with the anxiety that
often accompanies nighttime
problems, according to Home
Instead Senior Care. "The 86-

Abstract & Title celebrated its
grand opening with a ribbon
cutting ceremony Thursday
afternoon.
Crossroads was founded in
2004 by Michael and Gavin
McAuley. Michael brings near-
ly 40 years of title experience to
Florida after starting several
successful Abstract & Title
companies in Upstate New
York. In 2005, Crossroads was
proud to bring on board Jeffrey
H. Morris, Esq. An attorney
with more than 30 years of
experience in real estate law,
Morris now manages the clos-
ing department for Crossroads.
Morris brings a level of profes-
sionalism and thoroughness that
few Florida title companies can
offer.
,Crossroads separates itself
from other companies by pro-
viding an attorney at most clos-
ings. From the smallest residen-
tial refinance, to large commer-
cial transaction, Crossroads
makes sure that its clients,
interests are protected, and
ensures that the closing process
will be run smoothly and pro-
fessionally from beginning to
end.
With strong support from the

News-Sun, Sunday, September 17, 2006


MEUS
Continued from 1A
truck driver with the requisite
white', beard and truck-stop
belly, drove the cab of his 18-
wheeler to the rally.
Holding an orange protest
sign while Lee Greenwood's
"Proud to be an American"
closed the rally, he said Meus'
situation is "a bunch of bull."
"You can have a wreck that's
not your fault and you still lose
your license for 90 days,"
Fairfield said.
Fairfield joined about 75
people from Highlands and
Hardee counties who listened to
two church pastors call on God
to return Meus' freedom.
Patricia Austin, who organ-
ized the Free Meus Rally,
promised that Saturday's was
the first of many.
"We'll do 200 if we have to,"
Austin said. "We're not going
to quit now."
Austin, of Avon Park, organ-
ized several rallies during the
summer to protest her city's
attempt to address illegal immi-
gration via an ordinance that
would have punished landlords
and business people who know-
ingly lease to or employ illegal
aliens.
The measure failed, and its
chief proponent, then-mayor
Tom Macklin has since
resigned his post to runfor lieu-
tenant governor on the Reform
Party ticket with Max Linn.



BALLOT
Continued from 1A
other amendments on the
November ballot need only a
simple majority to pass.
In discussing why he sup-
ports this amendment,
Alexander discussed trains and
pigs.
"A single individual can
spend millions of dollars to put
something on the ballot," he
said, explaining that a woman
with a penchant for pigs used
Florida. which had only one pig
farm at the time, to send a polit-
ical message to Arkansas.
Likewise, he said the bullet
train initiative would have man-
dated millions in taxpayer
money for his constituents who
had a "slim to none" likelihood
of riding the rails outside of the'
occasional leisure trip.
Amendments often pass due
to a lack of voter education on
the issues at hand. Calling the
constitution the backbone of the
state, Alexander said it should
not be easily altered.
, "Outside special interests
have begun to abuse this
process and place too many
things in the constitution that
should normally be enacted by
the legislature, like pregnant
pigs." Grimsley said.
She said that, once on the
ballot, the special interests
bombard voters with informa-
tion that may not be relevant to
Sthe issue.
"For example," she said.
"Commercials about dogs and
cats' were used for the pig
amendment."
Amendment 4 would man-
date that 15 percent ($57 mil-
lion) of the 2005 tobacco settle-
ment payments to Florida
would be used for education
and awareness. In subsequent
years, that figure would be
adjusted for inflation.
Whereas other amendments
on the ballot were initiated by
the state legislature with 60 per-
cent approval from the House
and Senate, Amendment 4 was
initiated by a special interest
group Floridians for Youth
Tobacco Education.
More than $1 million was
spent with California-based
PCI Consultants to pay profes-
sionals to collect signatures,
according to
YoteSmartFlorida.org, which'
bills itself as a non-partisan
voter education resource.


Top contributors include the
American Cancer Association,
Florida Division, which' gave
$1.5 million; the American
Hearth Association, out of
Dallas, which gave $495,000;
and the American Lung
Association of Florida, which
gave $175,000.
"This amendment presents a
problem because it limits the
ability of the legislature 'to
make key decisions to meet the
needs of Floridians on a year-
to-year basis," Grimsley said.
Grimsley and Alexander sup-
port tobacco education via the
settlement money, though not


"She is so passionate about
this," Sam Varis, pastor of New
Covenant. Worship Center in
Avon Park, said of Austin
before he got behind the podi-
um and energized the .crowd.
"She's the reason we're here."
Varis said he was amazed
something like Meus' convic-
tions could happen in America,
a man sent to jail for an acci-
dent.
"It's not a black thing," he
said, calling for feedback from
the crowd. "It's not a white
thing and it's not an Hispanic
thing. It's a wrong thing."
Hot dog and snow cone ven-
dors were at the ready in the
parking lot west of the court-
house, empty during the
speeches then busy afterward.
"I was hoping to see more
truck drivers today," Zolfo
Spring resident Hope Wright
said, standing under the shade
of her snow cone trailer
awning.
Wright grew up with Moore
and her younger sisters Dana
Christenson and Beth Jahna.
"It was terrible, she gave so
much to the community,"
.Wright said of Moore's death.
"We used to 'be at each other's
houses all the time."
Wright wanted to give back
to Moore's daughters and
Meus' son, Jonathan Meus who
turned 14 Thursday, so she ear-
marked at least 20 percent of
her proceeds from the rally to a
fund set up for them.
"I feel so drawn to this," she


necessarily at the amendment's
proposed level.
"The question is do we need
to spend $57 million on an'
advertising campaign rather
than on education," Alexander
said, explaining that the amend-
ment calls for a third of the 15
percent be used on advertising.
"My concern is the money is
not going to be effectively
spent."
Using Amendment 4 as a
likely example of why
Amendment 3 should pass,
Alexander said Amendment 4
will probably pass because it is
an emotionally driven issue.
However, allowing it to pass
would divert money from the
state's general revenue coffers,
which is used for schools,
health care, roads and "any-.
thing else," he said.
Amendment 6 would
increase the additional home-
stead exemption for low-
income seniors from $25,000 to
$50,000.
Low-income seniors are
defined as 65 year olds (and
older) with a household income
of $20,000 or less.
This amendment would
allow local governments to ease
the: tax burden of increasing
property valuations on, seniors
with a fixed income.
"Property. values have
increased dramatically since the
exemption % as put in place,"
Grimsley said. "It's time to,
restore the protections to their
original potency."
Floridians who qualify for
the Homestead Exemption are
relieved of property taxes up to
$25,000. County governments
have the option of protecting
low-income seniors up to
$50,000 under the current law.
If this amendment is
approved by the voters, coun-
ties would have the option of
offering low-income seniors up
.to $75,000 in exemptions.
Amendment 7 would grant
permanently disabled veterans
a property tax discount in direct
proportion to his or her level of
disability.
Disabled veterans receive
theirratings in 10 percent incre-
ments from 10 percent disabled
to 100 percent.
Thus, explained Grimsley, a
50 percent disabled veteran
would receive a 50 percent dis-
count in property taxes.
The amendment requires
proof of Florida residency at the
time of entering the services,
proof that the injuries are com-
bat related and other forms doc-
umenting honorable military
service.
The discount would apply to
qualified applicants who are 65
or older.
"We want to' do everything
we can to support our World
War II veterans and beyond,"
Alexander said. "We can never
do enough."
Grimsley called the amend-
ment a matter of principle.
"I believe these meaningful
savings will greatly improve
the lives of those who have
spent theirs protecting the free-
doms we enjoy," she said. "It is


said. "He absolutely should not
be in prison. He should-never
have seen even one day in
court."
After making his speech
where he said God sent Moses
to release the Israelites after
300 years of slavery, Reginald
Franklin, pastor of First
Missionary Baptist Church in
Wauchula, visited with the

with three large cups of shaved

"I don't think it's going to
hurt," Franklin said, responding
to the concern of Christenson
that such a rally might sabotage
Meus' chance for a new trial or
release.
Christenson told the News-
Sun on Thursday that her fami-
ly supports his release, but are
going to let it play out in the
courts.
"We want to show support, to
have the case revisited not to
throw stones at anybody,"
Franklin said, having ques-
tioned the Florida Highway
Patrol investigation. "In
America, that's our right." ,
After the rally's conclusion,
Austin. said she met with a few
truckers in the audience.
"They want to know when
the next rally is," she said,
explaining that those with
whom she spoke said they'd get

literally the least we can do.,,"
Amendment 8 came about
after the 2005 U.S. Supreme
Court decision in Kelb v. The
City of New London, Conn.,
and would require a govern-
ment entity that uses eminent
domain to hold the property
five years before transfer to a
private entity.
"I think there's something,
distinctly' un-American about
taking Paul's house to give it tp
Peter, just because we think
Peter will pour more revenues,
in the government's coffers,".
Grimsley said. "That's why I
served on the Select Committee
called by (House) Speaker
Allan Bense to decisively enact
laws and offer this constitution-
al amendment."
In Kelo, the court affirmed,
New London's use of eminent
domain to take property from a
private citizen to give to anoth-
er private citizen (or corpora-
tion) if the latter stood to have a
greater economic impact.
Adjacent properties were
sold willingly by their owners
but the Kelo property threat-
ened the project because the its
didn't want to sell.
The Supreme Court's opin-
ion in Kelo said economic'
development was as valid a rea-
son for eminent domain as pub-
lic use or purpose.'
"Sebring Realtors told me
pretty clearly that government,
shouldn't be able to take prop-
erty for some other entity,"
Alexander said, voicing his
support for the amendment.
Even'if Amendment 8 passes
in November, a provision
allows exceptions to the new
limitation with a 3-5 vote of the
Senate and of the House.
"I support this amendment
because I think it will re-instill
the people's confidence that
their government exists to pro-
tect their dreams and their prop-
erty," Grimsley said. "Not to
take it away."

DARK,
Continued from 11A
that the film would run through
the projector, to be collected on
the empty reel and rewound at
a later date.
How reels were smoothly
changed in the middle of a ,
movie I didn't consider at all.
Well, it turns out that pro-
jecting a movie is a cross
between precision engineering
and a Rube Goldberg machine.
I hope you remember, or
have heard of Rube Goldberg.
He was a humorist who invent-
ed unlikely machines where
one ordinary or bizarre step led
to another so a simple task
would be done mechanically in
a very complicated way.
For example, a rocking chair
might rock on a cat's tail,
which causes the cat to jump,
onto a stack of books, which
fall over, hitting a see. saw
which flips a plate into the air
which lands on its place mat on
the dining room table.
The projection system at
Fairmount,:and Jackson said
the other movie theater in tow n
has a similar system, is only
slightly less complicated than a
Rube Goldberg machine, and I
don't think cats are involved.
But it's only slightly less
complicated. Here's why.
Every two projectors share a
tower of round platters that
look like large plastic pizza
pans'.
But it is kery cool. and when
you get to understand it, it's
very practical as %well.
There are five platters in
each tower. Each movie, or'
projector. uses two platters.
But already I'%e gotten ahead
of myself.


By the way, when I
remarked how difficult it
seemed to me, his job was,
Jackson said it was only tough
until he memorized how it was
done. He said after that the job
was a comfortable routine, not
without risk, as we'll discover,
but really rather easy.
In any case. The movie
arrives divided into reels.
"World Trade Center," which
runs two hours and 15 minutes
and is longer than most filmhhs,
has seven reels, for example.
The projectionist's main job,
with the arrival of the one or
two new titles that arrive every
Friday, is "to build the movie."
That means he puts a metal
ring, sort of like a large crewel
work ring only much bigger,
and he starts to wind the file,
starting with the beginning of
the movie on the inside, and
working to the outside.
Every time he gets to a new
reel, he splices it onto the reel
before, until he has the entire
movie spliced and L% rapped as
onelong continuous piece.
A film lead is fed out of cen-
ter of the platter, through what
is called the brain. That is a
series of rollers and pulleys,
that feeds the film out to the
projector.
Here's where it gets really
interesting. Because each tower
serves more than one projector,
at least one of projectors is at a
distance from the platter. in a
couple of cases, more than 30
feet away.
So what the projectionists
does. is run the film out in the
open. from the platter to the
projector. The film, which runs
through metal guides, travels
along the ceiling for pan of the
'way. and along the baseboards
for another leg. Then there are


all kinds of up and dow n side
trips the film takes to make 90
degree turns, until it runs
across the lens. is Jit. and then
winds its w% a\ back across the
room again.
There it threads itself onto a
different platter, the intake
platter. where it winds up
again, from the inside out.
meaning it ill become the
feeder for the next showing.
But all this snaking film
through the air means you are
constantly\ ducking under
strands of motine film. or e\en

By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING -A father and son team, Daniel R.
and Daniel P. St. George, operate the newl\
opened Alternative Mortgage Funding Inc. ,

Beach. Daniel P. St. George, the son, just com-
pleted six years in the nulitary and is the loan'
officer. He served twice in the desert while in the
military. His father, branch manager Daniel R. St.
George has been a Realtor for 13 years and in the
mortgage business eight years. For the last five
years he's been a manager with Alternative
Mortgage Funding Inc., which has 1.30 branches
in Florida.
"Our new Sebring branch is fast and efficient
w ith friendly ser\ ice. \\e make it easy for people.
I like puiting a fan-ilN in the first home or.freeing
someone from credit card debt by refinancing."
said Daniel R St. George -
As a Realtor. Daniel R. St. George found that
lots of contracts fell apart because of glitches in
financing, and that's "that plunged him into the
mortgage business. He likes to make sure the
process is followed up and that there's a speed\
solution. He feels that his farmliaritt\ th the.
Realtor aspect is a bi g benefit to the home bu\er.


"I get a lot of .,atisfaction'from putting some-
one in a home. We're not o\erl\ priced, and in
. ct m\ prices are dictated by need. I %%ant it to be
a k in-\\ in situation and a ser\ ce to the con-mmu-
nit\." Daniel R St George said.
Daniel R St George has access to secondary
loans And that combined \itth State Housing
Initiatives Partnership, which allo\,s up to
$15.100 and closing costs for lo\\-income peo-
ple, makes it possible for a fardil\ v. ho other ise
might not qualify to own their home
"I love putting it together and making it %ork.
I loe interacting' -ith the buyers. sellers and the
i ial iiisliullion so people can ptichase a home."
Daniel R. St. George said.

ple taken advantage of or be mistreated. I \ ould-
n't do that we v.ouldn't want done to us." Danel

EDITORIALS/OPI N IONS


IA VVZk- ~J"1A is Highlands
Serving Highlands County since 1927 The idea started with a news
The idea started with a news
MOSBY L. WIGGINTON JR. ROMONA WASHINGTON item I reported on several
Publisher Executive Editor weeks ago. Regular readers of
this column may recall I talked
CINDY MARSHALL SCOTT DRESSEL about the Mobile Phone
Night/Weekend Editor Sports Editor Throwing World Championship
that had been held in Helsinki,
Finland. The competition
involved (as you might guess-
from the title) pitching cell
phones.
In the column I asked if this
... kind of thing would be a good
summer event for Highlands
- County. Residents here know
- there usually isn't a lot that
S-- goes on in Highlands County
S.. during the summer. There are
- a also not a lot of tourists.
,_ There is a reason for this.
S. The reason is that it is hot in
S Highlands County during the
.summer. Tourists usually do not
like to bake and sweat without,
S- anything to do, such as stand in
Line at Disney World. So we are
.- not exactly a draw for people in
August.
S-- Anyway, I decided to riun he
-. . idea by someone who has
,. .- shown.an interest in summer
S. activities. He also possesses a


18A


Well, I'm not quite sure how
it happened, but we quickly
morphed from a cell phone toss
to a general computer event.
Barry wondered how far one
could throw, as he put it, a CPU.
Now, I'm pretty sure Barry
was talking about the whole
box or tower that houses your
computer parts. That is a fairly
decently sized piece of equip-
ment. They can also be quite
heavy, so seeing how far one
could toss it might be interest-
ing.
Side note to my fellow geeks:
I know the CPU is the squarish
chip that sits on the mother-


thing.
Wouldn't you love to see
how far you can toss a comput-
er monitor? Or swing a mouse?
Or maybe how many blows it
would take for you to break a
keyboard in half?
Maybe you want something a
little less violent. How about
trying to see how fast you could
put keys back on a keyboard?
Bowling a mouse ball? Going
for the fastest Minesweeper
time?
Realize I came up with a lot
of this stuff just sitting here
watching TV. Think of what
could happen if I actually con-


summer and didn't use tourist
tax dollars (he's allergic to
them). I'm willing to do both,
which gives us until the sum-
mer of 2007 to plan.
So what, dear readers, do you
think? Got any ideas for this?
E-mail me at bookwormla
dy@earthlink.net or call Barry
on. his radio show and share
them! Let's have the first elec-
tronics Olympics in Highlands.
County! Be sure to bring fans.

Did you vote on Sept. 5? It's the
average Joe's chance to be heard and JANELLE
to get the "right" people into office,
or keep the ones who are doing so Janelle
well already.
I can't think of how many times
I've heard the average guy or gal say 'you.can't
beat city hall.' But \\hatt would happen if all those
people (and there are quite a fe\\ I did come
together and use their freedom and responsibility
to vote? Would our schools be different? Would
our cities be different? County leaders?. It on"i
be known until those folks exercise their free-
dom.
What better way to show our support for the
troops and 'their families who have sacrificed so
much, than to get out there and. vote? If you're
scratching your head and sayinf'g. 'well, I was
going to, just didn't get around to it,' etc., the

decided it "\as her

That's when she renewed her
lo\e of dolls and combined her
artistic inclinations.
Busing variouss molds, she
pours and fires the porcelain in
her studio kiln. She applies all

bodies and clothes, but %when
she be\els the eye holes and
finally sets the eyes, she's
determined that doll's special
personality. The eyeballs are of
glass or acn lic and come in a
\arieti of sizes. "-They're like
humans and their eyes are the
Sindow to their moods. Some
are pouting, crying,. sleeping.
etc. I always aim to make them
lifelike. \\When I set those eyes.
I stop and wonder w hat they
are thinking. And like painting
a portrait. I add accents and
highlighting to really gile

"I'm a perfectionist, and

Tufts said.

people who want a doll are
adults. Tufts said. They may

"In this way it captures their

Her hobby is all the more

ARTS & LEISURE


Library gets down in the mouth


Celebrating 100 years


The Snapple Company not only
wants you to buy their products, they
also want you to be educated. Why else
would they print a "Real Fact" on the
inside of each bottle cap? At the very
least, their method ensures that
drinkers will first.look at the cap before
throwing it away, and, sure enough, I
found an irresistible piece of informa-
tion on my bottle cap. It said, "The LIBRnRI
mouth of the Statue of Liberty is three ID
feet wide." Car
Now most people think of the Statue ar
of Liberty's upraised 'torch, or her ess
crown, but her mouth? Do you remem-
ber one comic genius famous for that
part of her anatomy?'You will enjoy the biogra-.
phy, "Take it From the Big Mouth: The Life of
Martha Raye."
Most of us have smaller mouths than Raye, but
there's more to this part of us'than you may real-
ize, so take home one of the Human Body series,
"The Mouth," by Robert James, and get your
teeth around the anatomy of the human mouth,
plus information on the mouths of some animals.
Do you realize how often we use idioms (jar-,
gon, specialized vocabulary) about this part of
our,bodies? Ever heard anyone say, someone is
"tongue-tied," "don't give me any of your lip," or
he really put his "foot in his mouth?" Do you
remember being made fun of or criticized with
words-like "mouthy" or "motor-mouth?" Ann and
' Dan Nevins have gathered a collection of idioms
and their origins in their book "From, the Horse's'
Mouth," or share with a, preschooler Tedd
Arnold's laugh-out-loud book "Even More Parts:
Idioms From Head to Toe."
Kathy Caple writes about a common problem
'of teasing in "The Biggest Nose." Eleanor the
elephant is self-conscious about her large nose
after Betty the hippopotamus teases her, but she
overcomes her sensitivity when she realizes
Betty has the biggest mouth. Another common
problem is addressed in "Blabber Mouse.";
Blabber can't seem to keep his mouth shut, so his


o
e
*


friends gently teach him how to keep a
secret. Then there are those who don't
seem to mind their monikers as in the
Nancy Carlson series of the adventures
of "Loudmouth George."
Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones series,
number 3, tells it like it is, with "Junie
B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth."
Junie's kindergarten class has Job Day
t'LINES and Junie goes through much confu-
sion and excitement before deciding on
- .the "bestest" job of all.
lyln Two fun videos are "As Good As It
li~nk Gets," with an obsessive-compulsive
novelist, with Manhattan's meanest
.mouth, forced to babysit his neighbor's
dog. and that unexpected act of kindness puts him
back in* the human race;- and "The Horse's-
Mouth," a comedy about an eccentric artist,
recently released from jail, who stops at nothing
to get money.
When friends talk to friends, they pass along
both kudos and pans, so Godfrey Harris' book
may help your business flourish. Try reading "Let
Your Fingers Do the Talking: Word of Mouth
Advertising on the Internet."
Wile away an afternoon with our fiction
authors. Look for or reserve Saul Bellow's "Him
With His Foot in His Mouth and Other Stories,"
Donna Gershten's "Kissing the Virgin's Mouth,"
or Nancy Richler's "Your Mouth is Lovely."
If you're looking for a mystery involving polit-
ical big mouths, then Robert Campbell's "The
Gift. Horse's Mouth: A Jimmni Flannery
Mystery," is a great choice. It's big mouth', in big
trouble in the Windy City;, vith Campbell's "Hip-
deep in Alligators," "Nibbled to Death, by
Ducks," "In a Pig's Eye" or "Cat's Mleo ."

Retention pond improves waterways


A stormwater retention pond'
is supposed, to provide- a filter .
for potential waterway pollu-
tants. A well-built and main-
tained pond that.supports plant
life can significantly improve
the quality, of '. aiter draining
into Florida's waterways.
Think of shoreline vegetation .
along an., waterbed is the
..... dnes" of the x. aiershed
Desirable shoreline xege ion
can stabilize the soil, 1
protecting it from
waves and erosion and
uptake nutrients from 4'
runoff preventing.
them from entering the
waterbody. These
same shoreline plants
can help reduce pollu-
tahts ini the ground
water flowing to a GROW
stream or lake. A veg-
etated, tree lined SEAS
shoreline' also pro-
vides shade thathelps Ed Ay
to keep water temper-, .'
atures lower. Many
fish and other desirable aquatic
organisms prefer cooler temper-
atures. As water temperature
rises, its -capacity to hold oxy-
gen decreases. Unfortunately
many waterfront owners keep
their shorelines bare' or have
grass down to the shoreline.
This lack of a natural buffer
may contribute to shock loads
of nutrients and other pollutants
affecting the waterbody and
everything downstream.
You can help restore the lkid-
neys of your waterbody by
aquascaping your shoreline.
Desirable shoreline vegetation
should be planted close to' the
shore in the wide shallow area ,


called the littoral zone. Allow
for-water level fluctuations and
plant depth tolerant species fur-
ther out. The bald cypress' tree
(Taxodium distichum) does
well.on the shore or in up to, six
foot of water. A shrub that does
well along the shoreline, but not
in the %% after. is the hibiscus (any
vyetty).. Plant' that do well in
moist soil or shallow water are
the golden canna (Canna flacci-
da), alligator flag
(Thalia geniculata) and
southern' blueflag (Iris
virginica). A plant that
does well in shalloWy
water, up to three feet,
is the swamp lily
(Crinum americanum).
Duck potato (Sagittaria
latifolia) can be planted
VING' from the shore edge to -
six feet of water. Items
;ON for deep water are
arrowhead (Sagittaria
yen lancifolia) and pick-
'"" erelweed (Pontederia
cordata).


Grasses recommended for
the shoreline plantings are sand
cord grass (Spartina bakri'l, and
soft rush (Juncus effuses). Deep
water grasses, six to 12 feet, are
spikerush (Eleocharis cellulose
and interstincta)' and paspalidi-
um grass (Paspalidium gemina-
turn).
Floating leaved plants, rec-
ommended are yellow water
lily (Nymphaea Mexicana) and
fragrant water lily (Nymphaea
oderata).

To be sure, not all cholesterol is bad. The sub-

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
September 18, 1996: Both
the Lake Placid and Avon
Park volleyball teams came
out unenthusiastically and
were swept out of their
respective gymnasiums.
The Dragons took on
Cardinal Mooney, staging a
frenzied second game
comeback before losing
16-14. The Lady Red
Devils battled LaBelle but
couldn't raise the energy
enough for a win.

The bleachers behind the south end zone of Firemen's Field sit in over a foot of water Friday night,

Selma.Younes (9) and Rachel Ashley of Sebring team up to block a shot from Okeechobee's
Tierra Allen Friday night.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING Giving a team like
Okeechobee free points is never a
good idea.
The Brahmans, who started the
* season ranked No. I in Class 4A
and are currently No. 5, don't need
any help to beat most teams their
size all of their four losses are
to larger schools like Sebring.
Unfortunately for the Lady Blue
Streaks, they were guilty of making
a few to many mistakes to give
Okeechobee those unearned points
in a 25-12, 25-18, 25-19 loss to the
Brahmans Friday night.
Despite the loss, which dropped
the Streaks to 6-8 overall, head
coach Venessa Sinness was point-
ing to the positive following the
match.
"They hit the ball well and we
didn't block the ball well tonight,


that's what hurt us. But we didn't
quit," she said. "That's the first
time we haven't done that all-year.
"All the other games we've been
down in before, we've quit and I
could have walked out after the
first game because I knew. Tonight,
we didn't quit and we played hard
until the end and I'm really proud
of the girls."
The Lady Brahmans (10-4) used
an 8-0 run in the first game to take
command and coasted the rest of
the way, but the Streaks made them
work for their other two wins.
Thirteen kills by Kelley Smiley,
12 from Tierra Allen and eight by
Erin Kersey proved to be too much
for the Lady Streaks, however,
especially without the services of
big-hitting Brittany Bullock, the
team's anchor at the net, who was

PLACID
Continued from 1D
as a 44-yard pass from Dickie
de Lama to Joey Lauteria set up
a short touchdown run from
Drew Zink.
One kickoff later, the
Dragons fumbled again and
Tampa Catholic responded with
a 20-yard Rodney Johnson
touchdown. The 17 unanswered
points in five minutes gave the
Crusaders the momentum, and
they added seven more on a 16-
yard de Lama touchdown pass
to Eddie Gonzalez just before
halftime for a 24-0 lead.
Running back O.J. Williams
kept the home fans cheering in
the second half as he turned in
the game's best rushing per-
formance. 'His 18 carries for
109 yards made up the bulk of
the offense, but Lake Placid
turnovers kept the Dragons
from making a legitimate
attempt at a comeback ' "
- The Dragons got in the end :
zone with 5:22 remaining in the
football game thanks to
Williams' longest run of the
night. Fighting his way through
