Buti. like Aver', t. director of

That's because FISH num-
bers are measured based on
space and student numbers.

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Siun
Betty Podmore, of the Sebring Woman's Club, discusses the annual Dress A Doll program, in which vol-
unteers sew clothes for 180 dolls and bears.


Woman's Club in big need of


volunteers, material for sewing"


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING They say it's a
:dying art, but the Sebring
Woman's Club continues its 40-
year tradition of sewing outfits
for dolls and bears.
"We kind of run an assembly
line on the bears' clothes,"
Betty Podmore, chairman of
the club's Dress-A-Doll com--
mittee, said. She explained that
the bears are somewhat easier
to dress than the dolls. "We
dress the bears mostly in little
boy clothes."
At four hours each, it takes
the 12 volunteers about 720
hours to make dazzling dresses
for 100 dolls and debonair duds
for 80 bears.
Wachovia Bank buys what
will later become a coveted
companion for an underprivi-
leged Highlands County child.
The Woman's Club clothes
each, using basic patterns with


a custom touch reflecting an
individual seamstress' personal
touch.
"Everybody designs their
own clothes as they make it,"
Teresa Wildey, one of the vol-
unteers, said.
Some of the dolls get ribbons
in their hair, volunteer Alberta
Steffens said, showing off an
example.,
The bears are returned to the
bank, which displays them on a
Christmas tree through the hol-
idays at its North Ridgewood
Drive branch in Sebring,
Just before' Christmas,. The
Salvation Army volunteers dis-
tribute the plush toys through-
out the county.
Committee members use
donated material and sewing
notions when available, and
buy whatever else they need
from their own pockets.
"We're getting a lot of fabric
from peoples' attics," Wildey


said, explaining that they
receive interesting designs that
often are conducive for the pint-
sized apparel.
Podmore said buying the
spools -of thread necessary to
have a broad range of colors
can get expensive, when the
spools are $1 each.
"Donations are a big plus" to.
the proirann-i. she said. Also, it
takes six weeks for the %olun-
teers to sew, something that
younger, generations aren't
skilled in.
Volunteers several women
who help clothe the dolls aren't
club members are always
needed.
Of particular need, Podmore
said, is a serger, a sewing
machine tool that covers stitch
work with a more eye-pleasing
seam.
For more information, to vol-
unteer or donate, call Podmore
at 385-2605.


Special to the News-Sun
LAKELAND Did you
know that eating dinner fre-
quently with your children
could substantially reduce their
risk of substance abuse?
The Drug. Prevention
Resource Center is teaming
with the Florida Office of Drug
Control to encourage Floridians
to make a pledge to eat-dinner
with their families on Family
Day, Monday.
Family Day A Day to Eat
Dinner with Your Children -,
was created by the National
Center of Addiction' and
Substance Abuse in 2001 as a
national effort to promote fami-
ly dinners as an effective way to
reduce substance abuse among
children and teens. Family Day
promotes regular family activi-
ties to foster parent-child com-
munication, reminds us of the
value of parental enigagment
and encourage- parents to make
family dinners a regular feature
of their lives. Family Day is
celebrated each year on the
fourth Monday in September '
' Family dinners are about
more than just sharing a meal.
Research by CASA consistently
finds that the more often chil-
dren eat dinner with their fami-'
lies; the less likely they are to
smoke, drink or use illegal
drugs. The con\ersaions that


go hand-in-hand with dinner
help parents learn more about
their children's lives and help
them to better understand the
daily challenges they face.,

Children and teens that have
frequent family meals:
Are at half the risk for sub-
stance abuse compared to teens
who diner with their. families
infrequently ...
Are. less likely to have
friends or classmates who use
illicit drugs or abuse prescrip-
tion drugs
Are' more likely to get bet-
ter .grades in school. Have
lower levels of tension and
stress at home ,
Are more likely tosay that
they can confide in their parents
and that their parents are proud
of them .
Are more likely to be emo-
tionally content and have posi-
tive peer relationships
Ha'e healthier eating
habits
Are at lo\\er risk for'
thoughts of suicide .
Are less likely to try mari-
juana or have friends who .use
marijuana .
Family Day is riot just for'
families. It is a day for all to
celebrate, including businesses,.
religious' organizations ...and
community groups. The srm-n


Monday
bolic act of regular family
meals should be promoted and
celebrated inside and outside
the home throughout the year.
Begin making family dinners
a regular feature of your daily
routine. Visit www.floridafami
lyday.com to pledge to have
dinner/ with your loved ones on
Family Day Monday.

in brief


Council adopts

millage rate,

budget for next

fiscal year
SEBRING The
Sebring City Council.offi-
cially adopted the city budg-
et for the next fiscal year at
a public hearing Wednesday
night.
At the meeting,, the mill-
age rate was kept at 6.5
mills on the dollar, which
has been the rate since 1998.
However because of the
increase in taxable. income
in the city of Sebring, the
city' actually has more avail-
able tax revenue to work
with.
The city has more than
$3.7 million in available tax
revenue for this fiscal year,
an increase of of almost
$900,000 over last year.
There had been talk of low-
ering the rate to 6 mills, but
that talk was put off until
next year's budget discus-
sions.
The budget will go into
effect on Oct. 1.

Supporters

wave flags
SEBRING Friends of
Max Linn plan to gather for
a show of support for the
Reform Party hopeful and
his lieutenant gubernatorial
candidate, former Avon Park
Mayor Tom Macklin.
They will be at the inter-
section of U.S. 27 and the
Sebring Parkway from 5-7
p.m. today waving American
flags and the trademark
lime-green campaign signs.
Interested people are invited
to come or call 382-0229 for
more information.

Thor Log: Stretch of wet, cold rain leads to pulled muscle


Each week, the News-Sun
prints a log by Thor Knutson, in
Washington on the final stretch
of a Pacific Crest Trail hike
from Mexico to Canada. Visit
ThorHike.comfor maps, photos
or video.
Wednesday, Sept. 13
Left Chinook Pass walking in
the clouds: Wet, cold wind
blowing. Just as I was leaving,
about seven hikers came walk-
ing out of the cloud.
About an hour and a half
later, the sun came out. Still
cold and windy, but not wet.
Hiked 22 miles to the Urick
Shelter (one of two on the trail)
a cabin with a loft and a Ben
Franklin stove. No wood near-
by, and we were all too tired to
look for any, so no fire. Still
great to sleep inside out of the
wind.
Thursday, Sept. 14
Woke to rain. Kept waiting
for it to stop before getting up. I
knew if.I packed my tent wet
.almost everything in my pack
would get wet. Nothing is
worse than getting into camp


and having to sleep in a wet tent
with damp or wet sleeping bags
and clothes.
Finally gave up and left at
7:30 a.m. It was really nasty -
rain changing to snow, and
snow changing to sleet and
back to rain again.
My feet were so' cold, I
couldn't feel them. Put on an
extra pair of socks. They were
wet, but it was still a little
warmer.
It was so cold, I was afraid to
stop to eat. Had to keep moving
at a fast rate to keep from freez-
ing.
At about 3 p.m., the sun came
out and I was able to stop for
lunch.
Did 28 miles today. Spent the
night at a U.S. weather station.
Camped outside under a light
- thought it might be warmer.
Kept waking up all night think-
ing it was the sun coming up.

Friday, Sept. 15
. Woke up to rain again. Left
camp at 7:30 a.m. Rained all
day. No view. Just the trail and
rain. Everything wet. 'All the


bushes on the trail kept dump-
ing water on my feet.
Reached Snoqualmie Pass at
3 p.m. a room at the Inn, a
bath, dry clothes and food. Still
raining and 40 degrees.
Supposed to be raining tomor-
row.
I will move on as this seems
to be the forecast for the next
week.

Saturday, Sept. 16
Left Snokomish and hiked 23
miles in the rain. Was supposed
to stop, but didn't.
Reached my campsite to find
it was full of horses tied to trees
-and there was a large white tent
with a stove pipe coming out of
the top, but no people.
This was the only source of
water for some distance.
Backtracked a short way,.found
a flat spot, put up my tent and
started to cook in my tent, out
of the rain.
The horse owners (hunters),
came by and asked if I was all
right. I assured them that I was.
They went back to their big tent
with a stove and I stayed in my


little wet two-by-six-foot tent.
Sunday, Sept. 17
Woke up unable to move my
head. Tried to stretch, but mus-
cles went into a spasm. I tried
working it for a couple of hours
with no improvement.
Finally had to make a deci-
sion: Turn around for a day and
hike back or go forward for two
days. Took the two days for-
ward, taking Motrin every three
to four hours. Had muscle
spasms all day, sometimes
bringing me to my knees.
It's still raining. I hiked until
9 p.m. trying to make it out the
next day.
I was in too much pain to
look for a camping spot..
Camped in the middle of the
trail.
Haven't seen anyone all day,
but not alone tonight. Have a
mouse for company.
Monday, Sept. 18
Stopped raining during the
night, but 10 minutes after I got
packed, it started raining again.
Rained all day.' Could only
see the trail.


Took Motrin every four
hours. Finally made it out at 6
p.m., when I was supposed to
meet Yogi and Squatch at
Skykomis. It was 15 miles, but I
decided to go ahead and hope
they were still there.
As my ride drove into town,
they were just leaving. Visited
for a while. Yogi and Squatch
did some filming, asking me
about the trail.

Tuesday, Sept. 19
Down day today. Was hoping
for improvement with the mus-
cle problem. It's now 5 p.m.,
and it's somewhat better, but


still giving me a lot of prob-
lems.
The next section is five days.
Most of the section is an alter-
nate route. According to the
data book, the trail is impassible
due to mud slides in October
2003 with the bridges over huge
fast-flowing rivers and creeks
down.
There are alternative routes
that are steeper than those on
the trail. I doubt I can make it
over steep trails for five days
carrying a'30-plus pound pack
with my pulled muscle.
Will have to make a decision
tomorrow.

IDOL
Continued from 1A
Flack classic "Killing Me
Softly." Vega's "nice, husky
voice" as described by judge
Marnie France was key in her
advance to the second round.
Andrea Mathis, 43, of
Sebring, took the crowd to
church by singing the gospel'
song "Hold On." Mathis was,
like Allen, able to get the crowd
fully involved in her perform-
ance. Mathis even had her fam-
ily in the audience singing
backup vocals for her.
The final contestant to
advance was Virginia Leach,
29, of Sebring. Her powerful
rendition of the soul classic
"Natural Woman" impressed
the judges enough to get her
into the semifinals.

mistakes a homeowner dan make regarding
planting of trees, shrubs and plants, that it is
a definition plus when an expert is available

Just such an expert will be the featured

Because the current is so low
(lower than a .commercially-
available defibrillator), any
deaths that have occurred
simultaneous to a.TASER inci-
dent likely were caused by trau-
ma other than electrocution.
Such deaths are attributed to
something called "excited delir-
ium."
"In all probability they were
on their way to death anyway,"
Fane said, explaining the term
and noting that law enforce-
ment was called because of
some kind of incident.
TASER International stands
behind its product, backing
departments with $10 million
liability coverage for each use

works to clarify and the local

Already some adjustments
have been made to the docu-
ment which will be approved or
denied at a special school board
meeting at 3 p.m. Thursday.
The approved report must be
received by the department of
education by Tuesday, Oct.10.
The school board has already
pretty much signed off the par-
ticulars, although" there was
some tweaking done at the
Tuesday workshop.
For example, the process of
closing on the property for the
kindergarten center, at 3560/70
U.S. 27 S., is well under way.
The board and district adminis-
trators have geared up for the
fast lane, expect to close soon
and are confident the extensive
remodeling, planned with
teacher input, will be ready for
the 2007-08 school year.
There were questions at the
workshop regarding the wis-
dom of paying to build covered
walkways to portable class-
rooms that are scheduled for
removal in the same five year
plan that calls for the walk-
way's construction. Board
members agreed to have the
walkways pulled from the list.

However, Fane said, some
departments throughout the
country may have paid "vic-
tims" of police brutality, where
an officer was proven to exces-
si.el) administer the TASER.
To protect against this, the
weapons have software that
record the time and date of each
firing, its duration and other
factors such as temperature and
humidity.
Connected to a computer, the
X26's log can help internal
investigators determine
whether a suspect's allegations
of abuse are legitimate.
Fane said, such information
could. be used to sanction
overzealous officers or catch a
criminal in a lie.
In addition, each cartridge

probes that have a range of up
to 21 feet) can be expended

to wait and see where the coun-
ty's development really occurs
over the next two or three years
before investing in property.
A 20 acre site, along
Memorial Drive, has already
been earmarked as the home for
the next elementary school to
be built in the northern portion
of the county.
Board members will almost
certainly approve the setting
aside of $1 million to buy that
site when they vote on the five
year plan Thursday.
Newly elected to the school
board district five seat, Andy
Tuck was at the workshop.
In a telephone interview two
days later, he found the five
year plan well thought out gen-
erally, but wondered if the price
for the new school site, at
$50,000 an acre, was too high.
"I'm still just sitting in the
meetings as a taxpayer," Tuck
said. "I'm not privy to behind
the scenes. But, as a person
who knows a little bit about real
estate, well, in a nutshell; .I
think that's too high. There
aren't a lot of properties selling
for that amount. I hope we're
not sending the wrong mes-
sage."
Averyt, when reached about
the subject, said there are limit-
ed places to put a school, which
can affect the price.
For one thing, he said, a
school has to be located where
the largest number of its intend-
ed students can walk to it. That
means out-of-the-way sites
won't do. Ease of water and
sewer hook-ups are of major
concern as well.

Reid, staff offer

wonderful care

Editor:
Sometime back I wrote an
article about Heartland,Pain &
*Rehabilitation Center. It was
about Dr. Reid and his staff. I
told about the good that they
did for me.
The old saying about
"cares." Well you took them to
Jesus and he took them all
away. The same goes for Dr.
Reid and his staff in this way.
Pain, you take it to Dr. Reid and
his staff and they will take the
pain away.
You may laugh at what I am
about to say. I call them angels
because angels do care and that
'is what the group does.-Oh yes
I must not forget Magic Fingers
(I can not remember her name).
She is.tops too. I love them all.
God bless them for what
they do.

Bigs make a

major decision
Editor:
On behalf of the board of
directors, staff and all the
Littles and Bigs we have
served, I want to express my
deep appreciation to the com-
munity for the support it has
provided Florida Ridge Big
Brothers Big Sisters over the


years. I also want to share some.
exciting news.
Since 1987 Florida Ridge
BBBS has worked hard to
recruit enough volunteers, cre-
ate meaningful community
relationships and raise enough
money to keep up with the
growing number of Littles who
- are'waiting to be matched with
a Big. It has been a struggle.
Because agencies our size
face this constant struggle for
survival everywhere in the
country, BBBS of America has
recommended and encouraged
smaller agencies to merge. The
resources, both programmatic
and financial, that larger agen-
cies can make available are
helping to ensure that children
living' in smaller communities
will still have a chance to have
a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Our concern has been to
make sure that the children of
Highlands County can continue
to get a chance to have a Big
Brother or Big Sister.
After much discussion and
careful consideration, the board
of directors of Florida Ridge
BBBS voted to merge with Big
Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun
Coast. The merger became
effective on Aug. 1. The Sun
Coast agency operates a very
successful 'program in the
counties of DeSoto, Manatee
and Sarasota. The main office
is in Venice. This is really good
news for the children w6 want

As I drop my children off at
school of a morning I watch as
they struggle to get their back-
packs out, but I see other kids
hunch their backs over to sup-
port the weight of their own
backpacks.
Briana; my sophomore,
asked me the other day to get
her backpack for her since she
had other things to carry in. I
agreed and thought I'd be sly
and just grab the bag from the
driver's seat.
Forget it.
I had to get out and go round,
the car to get the thing out. It
made me wonder just how'
much it actually weighed.
And there are days when
Daniel's backpack are not real
light. He's in fifth grade so I'm
sure that will change as he
moves on up the ladder.
I had each of the children
stand on the scales twice to
make sure I had a good reading
on their weight. Then I had
them put their backpacks on
and get back on the scales.
I was shocked.,
Briana's backpack weighed
22.7 pounds, and she informed
me that it didn't have all of her
booksin it.
Daniel's bag waslighter at
11.6 pounds, but still... .
Since then I have looked at,

it's people and environment, 'I.

In essence some 30 years'
ago Westinghouse Corporation

said water had to travel approx-
imately two miles of filtration

the solution is to dig a hole, dig

'Shore up' more

foundations
Editor:
It was very good news to
read that The School Board of
Highlands County members are
seriously planning to build
two-story schools. The cost of
land is so prohibitive that it
makes perfect sense, and all the
other noted advantages only
sweeten the pot, so to speak.
I was thinking that they

school' as, they either are going
to school or leaving school. I
never gave much thought,
before to the poor posture of a
lot of the teens, especially the
girls, but now I think I under-
stand.
Briana doesn't, stand as
straight as I am happy with.She
knows that and is reminded
fairly regular by myself or my
-mother. Even some of the
women at church have encour-,
aged her to stand, straighter.
Though I will admit that piano
and, flute lessons, as ell as
Junior ROTC have been a big
help.
I guess- I don't understand"
why schools have ,so many
lockers and the students aren't
able to use them.
I-know there is a movement
to keep the children from using


the lockers,. unless absolutely
necessary. I did sign Briana up
for one when she was on the
swim team. She doesn't like to
use it because it's. so far out of
her way.
Maybe I'don't have a reason
to complain since she does have
the option, but I can't help but
wonder how this way makes it
any better for the students than
the way it was when 'I was in
school. We had lockers .and we
understood that they could be
searched at any tifne. No big
deal.
I'm not sure what it is, a case
of "if it's not broke, don't fix'
it," or "when I was your age
(fill in the blank)." ,
I just wish their was a way to*
make it better.
Something else that is a bit
disturbing is lunch time.
Briana and I were talking the
other day about the school
lunches and she asked why
everyone is so concerned about
obesity in children when they
have started offering ice cream
at lunch again.
Goiod question. '
I usually pay for my kids'
lunches in two-week intervals. I
know how much. they cost and
just right out a check every
other week. Last year,. before
the second week was even up I
would get notes sent home with


Daniel telling me that he owed
money for lunch.
That told me one of two
things was going on: Either
someone else was getting lunch
charged to Daniel's account or
he was getting extra food that
he didn't necessarily need.
Now, before, anyone starts
yelling. I know that growing
boys tend to eat more, but I
don't always agree that cookies
or chips are the right thing.
I finally had to write a note to
the lunch lady and tell her that
the money he paid his lunches
with was for lunch only. If he
wanted something else, or if I
felt he needed anything else, I'd
gladly send extra money with
him.
So far this year %e haven't
had any problems, but the year
is young.
The only other concern 'I
have is when I hear complaints
from Briana that by the time she
gets to lunch all of the food is
gone. That's another sore sub-
ject, but one I'm still trying to
figure out:
Any ideas?

school's foundations (perhaps
similar to what was done to our

another floor could be added to

It would cost considerably
less than purchalisg new land,

already in good locations. All

Don't want to

lose WINK-TV

Editor:
Yesterday, I received a rather
disappointing e-mail from Gary
Gardener, general .manager of
WINK-TV. Gary stated that
Rod Dagenais, area vice presi-
dent, Comcast of West Florida,
had informed him by letter that
effective Oct. 24, Comcast will
no longer carry WINK-TV as
its CBS outlet in the Lake
Placid and Sebring cable sys-
tems.
We will lose contact with
another Southwest Florida ouf-
let and be forced to have anoth-
er Tampa station that doesn't
know that there is anyone liv-
. ing south of the Interstate 4
corridor. Our area relates geo-
graphically to the west and
southwest communities rather
than the Tampa Bay area. The


only reason we have a Fort
Myers NBC outlet is that so
many of the Comcast cus-
tomers complained: that they
lost the nightly "Wheel of
Fortune" and Jeopard pro-
grams.
WINK-TV has excellent
news coverage of the south-
central Florida area and has the
best weather reports and fore-
casts for Highlands County. It
would be a shame to,lose what
I consider to be our best local
station.
This is, another. action by
Comcast to offer the least serv-
ice, for a high price without
regard to what their customers
really want. Does anyone ever
wonder what happened to the
channel 78 local weather?
Comcast said after several
years, "it was a mistake, Lake
Placid should have never had
the station" and dropped .it!
They didn't drop the price of
their cable monopoly.. ,
If you don't want to lose
WINK-TV, contact Comcast.

Injustices are

too numerable

Editor:
Injustice has been done and
another one is in the making.
Recently an article in the
newspaper described that a
teacher was stopped by a police
officer. She was stopped while
driving in an area, known by
the police, to have high illegal
drug activity. A search was
made, drugs found, she was
handcuffed, her car was
impounded and she spent the


night in jail. The teacher tem-
porarily lost her job and had to
pay $300 to get her car back.
All of this happened because
she had no proof on her person
that the drugs had been pre-
scribed by a physician.
The teacher, who lives
across the street.from the police
station, requested that she, be
taken home, where she had
proof that the drugs were pre-
scribed. But, why was' she
stopped in the first place? The
news article made no mention
of a traffic violation.
Later, in a statement to the
newspaper, a police representa-
tive made no reference as to
why she was stopped. If the
teacher was stopped simply
because she was in an area.
known for illegal drug activity,
this was the injustice.
Now, concerning an injustice
in the making. There has been
ongoing articles in the newvspa-
per about the flooding of
Spring Lake and the problem of
draining that area.
According to many articles
in the newspaper, one way to
get rid of the water is to drain it
across land, located on
Arbuckle Creek. This land is
owned by Sandra Tyrell who
has'been successful in limiting
and stopping the water flow
across her property. This has
been done with lawsuits; by her
and court orders in her favor.
Now, according to an article
in the newspaper, "eminent
domain" comes into the pic-
ture. Celeste Adorno, an emi-
nent domain specialist with the
state .attorney general's office is
studying what can be done.

with a goat that would not stay
inside the pen, to hold conver-
sations with chickens and act as
a midwife for pigs.,
So it came as no real surprise
when I became unreasonably
enamored of a new bull that
appeared in the neighbor's pas-
ture one day.
The ,minute my daughter
Jenny saw the bull she also was
instantly attracted to him.
"Mom, he's beautiful isn't
he?"
"Yes, he is."
He was a massive, coal-black
animal, with short curved
horns. We later learned that he
was a Limousin bull, and
despite his intimidating size and
apparent disregard for humans,
Jenny immediately proclaimed'
him "Fernando," and never
failed to speak to him if he was
anywhere near the fence as we
came and went.


Fernando was typical in his
bull behavior; although Jenny
and I greeted him faithfully, he
never,chose to reply or give the
slightest indication that he-
knew we were alive. That didn't
stop me from talking, and
sometimes singing to him,
though, as I passed.
"Can you hear the drums,
Fernando?" I quoted the song
by Abba as I drove slowly past.
"I remember long ago another
starry night' like this ... in the
firelight Fernando."
' He would chew his cud and
stare with acute interest at a tree
or clump of weeds, and I would
laugh at myself for my silliness.
Fernando chose a shady spot
under a tree near the pond as his.
resting spot and would lie there,
usually with a cowbird or two
perched on his back, and think
about whatever it is that bulls
think about.
Then one day, Fernando was-
n't under the tree near the pond.
I wondered about this but was-
n't alarmed. Maybe, God for-
bid, he had found a new resting
spot where we couldn't see him.
The next day I learned that
Fernando had died. I couldn't
have taken the news any harder
if he had been my bull, but the
worst was yet to come; I had to
break the news to Jenny. I told
her when I picked her up from
the school bus stop .that after-
noon.

"I have bad news," I said
without preamble.
"What is it?" She got settled
in the passenger seat and gave
me her undivided attention.
"I know why we haven't seen
Fernando. He died."
"How do you know?" She
was in denial right away; I
could see in her eyes that she
suspected I could be wrong.
"I have it on good authority."
SHer face fell and she fixed
me with the saddest look I have
ever seen.
"Why did he die?"
"I don't know."
There was a long silence and
then ...
"I'm really going to miss
him," she said finally.
"I will too," I agreed.
Of course that was putting it,
mildly, and I chided myself for
once again getting attached and
allowing myself to be heart bro-
ken over the loss of yet another
farm animal ... one that didn't
even belong to me. But I also
know that it's hopeless, and it
will happen again because I just
can't help getting attached.
Maybe it's- not such a big
deal, this getting attached thing.
Maybe it's what I'm supposed
to do and maybe despite his
apparent indifference Fernando
knew that he had.two dedicated
fans and approved.
Well ... maybe that's a
stretch, but in the immortal
words of Abba ...
"If I had to do the same
again, I would, my friend ...
Fernando."

Organizing

computer files
When working with com-
puter files, it is a great help
to understand the logic of
naming files. Creating fold-
ers and filing documents
into folders is fairly simple.
Originally,'computers
could only, accept filenames
up to eight letters long.
Extensions are three letters
following the dot. A list of
common software exten-
sions would be: .doc, .wpd,
Atxt, .jpg, and .xls. These
extensions belong to Word,
\\ord Perfect, WordPad or
Notepad, a digital photo and
Excel Spreadsheet, respec-
tively. .
When s i-.a create a file,
your computer automatical-
ly assigns an extension to
that file's name that reflects
what softw are prograni you
were using when \' ou creat-
ed the file. For example, if
you are using Microsoft
Word to create a word pro-,
c essine doticument. the sal\e
function % ill default to file-
namnie.doc to indicate this -
ile is a \\ord document.
To organize all those doc-
uments you ha% e pre%. iousl

aging. .

By LARRY LEVEY
.. correspondent
TAMPA- E en bod. wants to live a long time-
but no one wants to g\o. old. That pretty much sums
up e,:ern one's ideas abotit aging.
However, as Dr. Tomn Mulligan from the Division of,
Geriatrics, Unilersit. of Florida, pointed out" at the
2006 Florida Conferenlce o:n Aging, there are different
ways of aging., -.
Mulligan said the usual sty le of aging results in .high
cholesterol. high blood pressure. diabetes. osteoporo-
sis, %a iih half this population spending time in a nursing
,lome. and dying between ages 70-80:. '
Successful aging. he said, involves staying healthy
for most of s our later years and adapting to chronic dis-
ease and liiing,well into and past your 80s.
Ho%\ etei. iou need to define successful aging for your-
self. NMulligan gave as an example a farmer-friend of
his s\ ho died in his 66s. But this man had said he want-
ed to die in his tractor and that's exactly what hap-
pened. "I call that successful aging," Mulligan said.
Looking at what he called the "real causes" of death
in America, he said number one is tobacco. at 19 per-
cent. Diet and inactivity account for another 14 per-
cent; alcohol, 5 percent; illegal drug use, 4 percent;


occupational and en, ironmental exposure. 3 percent:
ftearms. 2 percent: and irresponsible sexual behaltor.
"1 percent. , . .. ,
So. if \ou sant to promote unsuccessful agiii_2,
here's the prescription Smoke, drink a lot of alcohol
(although one glass of red sine a da\ is good), eat a,
high fat/high sugar,'lo% fiber diet, be sedentar, fail to
become immunized and harbor no motivation to
chance.
On the other hand, several steps can be taken to get
on the road to successful aging: Quit makingg and et[
flu shots. Also, watch } our diet "Obesity is now epi-
deimic in the United States," Mulligan said. "and obesi-
ty leads to high blood pressure, diabetes and heart
attacks." .
Cutting do\.n on calories, he said, improves immune
function improves heart function afid increases length
of life. adding that thin people, on 'ihe average, live
seen )ears longer than heavy people.
The ideal diet, he explained, is high in fiber, low in
fat and concentrated sugars and from 1,000-2,000 calo-
ries a day.
"Portion size is critical. Take four ounces, not 12.
And don't super-size." .

Next Frida'y the topic will be "Siic ~e'pil Aging:
Part II (the Mediterranean Diet and how to find a good
doctor)."

Pay attention! 'Black Dahlia'




plot extremely hard to follow


Some would argue that piec-
ing together the perplexing
shards of a quality detective
film are what make the genre so
appealing. This thug is connect-
ed to that dame is in cahoots
with those cops, etc.
Some would say it's the
atmosphere that draws one in.
Pained trumpet solos and coils
of cigarette smoke in glistening
black alleys make up the
intriguing world where make-
believe murders occur.
Everyone is sexy and tough.
Everyone is gruff and secretive.
Everyone is a step ahead of the
good guy until he unveils the
plot in a climactic omniscient
soliloquy.
Regardless of which perspec-
tive you subscribe to, everyone
is a fan of the moment it all
comes together. The conclusive
"ah-haaa" is what we expect,
the moment that leaves the.
viewer excitedly rethinking the
previous two hours or dismiss-
ing the story with a disinterest-
ed' wave. The ;true classics
refine this to a precise intersec-'
tion of emotion and plot
("Seven," "The 1 Maltese
Falcon," "Chinatown"), while
the disappointments fizzle and
fade. /
"The Black Dahlia," the
highly anticipated collaboration
between crime novelist Jame's
Ellroy and celebrated director
Brian de Palma, steadily and
excitedly pursues this
"moment." Raising the stakes
with multiple femme fatales, a
notoriously grisly Los Angeles
murder and more twists than a
plate of linguini, it is a movie
that demands unwavering atten-'
tion.
The film centers on a pair of

division gets hairy. This is the
moment in' the movie where
you should take out your
notepad, because the peripheral
characters and red: herrings
come flying from. all angles.
The dissected body of actress
Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirshner)
is discovered in an empty
Hollywood lot while our boys'
are tracking the activities of a
local pimp. Blanchard all but
abandons the film when he
becomes obsessed with the
"Black Dahlia," (named such
because she was always seen
wearing: black). In his absence,
tension of all varieties crops up
between Kay and Bucky, and
while Bucky struggles to stay
focused on he and his partner's
original assignment, he is
inevitably pulled into the
Dahlia case with Lee.
Bucky's own investigations
lead him to femme fatale num-
ber three, Madeleine Linscott
(Hilary Swank). It takes little
time for the two to fall into bed,
and though it's obvious she
can't be trusted, her true con-
nection to the murder is ulti-
mately not that intriguing. In
fact, so many superfluous cul-
de-sacs amount to nothing that
the resolution leaves you feel-


ing cheated.
There is no moment of "ah-
haaa," only a drawn out scene
of "huh?"
Like "L.A. Confidential," I
suspect "The Black Dahlia"
would take several viewings to
accurately map out the mystery.
But unlike "L.A. Confidential,"
this film zooms in on characters
with which we were only
briefly acquainted. Without' a
chance to gauge the shady
underpinnings ourselves,, the
moment feels like a wad of con-
fetti thrown in our faces.'
As a fan of. the atmosphere, I
found myself surprisingly satis-
fied with the experience, but I
certainly couldn't explain the
conclusion without seeing it
again.

Contemplating life after death not easy


While driving through town
recently, I' spotted a sticker on
the window of a passing truck.
The message from the obvious-
ly proud owner was:. "Is there
life after death? Mess with this
truck and find out." Even
though I had no intention of'
"messing" with his truck, the
little sticker did get me to think-
ing.
Life after death is a concept
that we don't like talking about
too much because it involves
talking about death. Sure, we
don't mind talking about heav-
en, but it's the "death talk" we
struggle with. The cold, hard
fact is this: We are all going to
die. The Bible clearly states in
Hebrews 9:27 that "everyone
must die once..."
Job 14:1-2 tells us that "man
that is born of woman is of few
days and full of trouble." We
have example after example in
the Bible of people who died.


From the great lead-
ers of the Old
Testament like
Joseph and Moses to
the forerunner of
Christ, John the
Baptist, right on to
the Lord Jesus him-
self. So people die,
but then what?.
The Bible speaks
often of eternal life;
that is, life beyond
this earth. In the
"golden test" of the
Bible, Jesus promises
eternal life. in John
3:16: "God loved the
world so much that


VERLO
SPIRIn

he gave his one and only Son so
that whoever believes in him'
may not be lost, but have eter-
nal life." '.
Scripture tells us of only two
possible dwelling places after
death. In Luke 16,'Jesus tells us
of the story of a rich' man and


poor man ,named
Lazarus. They both
.4 died. The rich man
was buried and later
; the text tells us that
he was in a place of
torment. It also tells
us that Lazarus was
in a place of comfort,
peace and rest, called
INS Abraham's bosom.
Jesus tells us in
IAL another place,
MIN Matthew 25, that he
would eventually
'arrell divide all of mankind
- into two groups.,
Those who have
never trusted in Jesus
would be cast into "outer dark-
ness" and those who have trust-
ed in Jesus would receivee the
kingdom God has prepared for
you..."
There is life after death. You
and I will live on after we
depart this life. Shouldn't the


primary question then be:
,"Where will I live eternally?"
The apostle Paul knew without
a doubt where he would go
when he left this earth in 2
Corinthians 5:8: "We are confi-
dent, yes, well pleased rather to
be absent from the body and to
be present with the Lord."
Have you put your trust in
what Jesus did for you 2,000
years ago on a cross? Have you
been immersed into Christ to
inherit all spiritual blessings?
Are you walking with him
daily?
If so, be as confidant as Paul
and look forward to that home-
coming in the sky. If not, turn to
Jesus today and heaven can be
yours.

St. Francis of Assisi
Episcopal Church
LAKE PLACID After a
relaxed summer, the church is
now back to a full schedule.
The llth Alpha Class has 35
members in attendance, includ-
ing four teens. The class, in true
Episcopal tradition, starts off
with a meal, then a 30-minute
video, then shares homemade
desserts and breaks into small
groups for discussion and time
of prayer.
St. Francis is also doing a
churchwide Bible study on the
Book of Acts.
The Daughters of the King is
an order for women affiliated
with some Christian churches.


Members undertake a Rule of
Life including prayer, study and
evangelism. The object of this
order is to extend Christ's king-
dom. M6re than 100 women
were at St. Francis for the
Diocesan Fall assembly for this
occasion. The women came
from 22 parishes from the sur-
rounding areas which were rep-
resented from the Florida
Diocesan.
St. Francis has also started
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew,
a counterpart of The Daughters
of the King, which will be in
effect in the next few weeks'.
During the summer, St.
Francis has become committed
with a parish-to-parish relation-
ship with an upcoming congre-
gation that presently meets in
the leader's living room
because of not having a church
facility of its own. This has all
come about through a trip to
Honduras that three church
members took earlier this year.
The' church will be having its
annual 'Anglican Angels
Christmas Bazaar Nov. 11, fol-
lowed by the church Talent
Show on Nov. 12. Tickets will


be available shortly. The com-
mittee is formed (with room for
more) to design, build and paint
the float for the yearly
Christmas parade.

sented. Carole Goad will sing

provide all piano accompani-
ment. Congregation and guests
are invited for refreshments in
fellowship hall following the
service. Special prayer is need-
ed for the Rev. Feman and
Marlene Gomez, missionaries
in Venezuela.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
September 22, 1996:
Frostproof tailback Travis
Heny wvon a battle, but
Sebring won the war.
Sebring's rock-ribbed
deferise answered the call
as the Blue Streaks upset
'the third ranked Class 3A
Bulldogs at Firemen's Field
28-27. The game came,. .
down to one play: Heniy's
inability to score a two-.
point conversion.
Otherwise, Henry lived up
to his billing as a bonafide
blue-chip college prospect
rushing for 309 yards on
25 carries for an average
12.36 yards-per-carry and
three touchdowns Field
position and ball control
were the keys to Sebring's
offensive success with run-.
ning backs Tim Lippett and
Malcom Jackson rushing .
for a combined 257 yards.
Henry currently plays for
the NFL's Tennessee Titans.

Am I cursed or not?


Greetings to Christians and non-
Christians alike. Sorry 'for being
absent, things come in life but anything
that I had going on is no excuse for me
not to find time to write and give you
words of encouragement.
There is a great Christian song title
"Be still and know that he is God."
Just remember that, we all need to stop
and know that he is God and we must
be obedient blessing or curses occur COP
depending on whether we are or not.. C,
Do you ever feel that you are under
a curse? Even feel like you and your Barry
family is under a curse? Well you -
might be. Why? Simply put according
to the Bible (which is God's word
breathed into the apostles who wrote it) because


you are being disobedient so stop. I am sitting
here writing to you after having another surgery,
talk about feeling cursed. Not to worry it was
nothing major I'll be back on my feet in a couple
days.
Well lets go to Deuteronomy 28:15-21.,
"However, if you do not obey the Lord your God
and do not carefully follow His commands and
decrees I am giving you today, all these curses
will come upon you and overtake you; You will
be cursed in the city and cursed in the country.
Your basket and your kneading trough will be
cursed. The fruit of your womb will be cursed,
and the crops of your land, and the calves of your
herds and lambs of your flocks. You will be
cursed when you come in and cursed when you
go out. The Lord will send on you curses, confu-
sion and rebuke in everything you put your hand
to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden
ruin because of the evil you have done in forsak-
ing him. The Lord will plaque you with diseases
until he has destroyed you from the land you are
entering to possess." I suggest you read the entire
chapter as it goes more. into the curses and how to
avoid them.
Wow, that is some pretty powerful and fright-
ening curses. So how can you avoid that simply
being obedient and following his commands. And
in that not only will you not be cursed but you
will be blessed, which I will explain in a minute.
Now 'remember this it is not only the Ten
Commandments you must follow but all his com-
mands which you can, only find by reading the
Bible. The Ten Commandments are found ;in
Deuteronomy 5:1-21. Read them, type them out
and print them to hang up somewhere as a
reminder. But there are other commandments
throughout the Bible such as Leviticus 19:18 that
says; "Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge
against one Of your people, but love your neigh-
bor as yourself." That's a hard one sometimes
isn't.it? This; is addressed several times in the
Bible arid in Matthew 5:43-45. He (Jesus) co-
mands you to riot only love your neighbor but
also your enemies this is Jesus talking, "You
have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor


R
Se
cS


and hate your enemy,' but I tell you;
Love your enemies and pray for those
who persecute ypu,. that you may be
sons of you father in heaven."
Here is another tough one, Matthew
7:1-2, "Do not judge, or you too will be
judged. For in the same way you judge
others, you will be judged, and with the
same measure you use, it will be meas-
FOR ured to you." So how would it feel to
FOR be judged as critically and harshly that
1iST you judge other people? You can
absolutely disapprove of what some-
chnable one does or how someone acts and
- rebuke them for doing wrong against
God, but don't be judgmental because
of your personal views we all have trouble
with that one, myself included. So what about
the blessings?
OK, now you understand that there are more
commandments to follow than just the Ten
Commandments. Now if you are obedient and
follow God's commands this is what you get.
Deuteronomy 28:1-8 says, "If you fully obey the
Lord you God and carefully follow all his com-
mands I give you today, the Lord your God will
set you high above all the nations on earth. All
these blessings will come upon you and accom-
pany you if you obey the Lord your God: You
will be blessed in the city and blessed in the
country. The fruit of your womb. will be blessed,
and the crops in the andthe young of your live-
stock the calves of your herds and the lambs
of your flocks. Your basket and your .kneading
trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when
you come in and blessed when you go out. The
Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up
against you will be defeated before you. They
will come at you from one direction but flee from
you in seven. The Lord will send a blessing on
your barns and on everything you put your hand
to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land
he is giving you," Wow, now that is what I want.
I know you do too. So read Deuteronomy and
search out God's commandments, throughout the
Bible.
Rule of thumb always do what is right, love
others as you love yourself and.follow the Golden
Rule: Do onto others what you want done onto
you. You will-easily follow all God's command-
iments if you simply do that because all his com-
mandments are about doing what is right and
love. Have a good week and I promise I will write
again very soon.

God bless you and yours and all that you do.

I'd ask "who cares," but

fan, it's nice to know that ran-
dom fans now know a thing or
two about my favorite team's
offense. Even I couldn't tell
you who's fifth and sixth on
the Denver depth chart at wide
receiver. Rotisserie fans will
rattle them off without batting
an eye, even if they're from
Green Bay. This didn't happen
before the fantasy era.
Unlike other team sports,
it's easier, to sit down and
watch a particular NFL game,
featuring teams you may not
care about, and enjoy the expe-
rience. You'd never catch me
watching a Royals-Rangers
game, or a Sonics-Bucks game,
but I watched the second half
of the Vikings-Panthers game
on Sunday completely enter-
tained. I don't need another
reason to watch a sport that


already has my undivided
attention, therefore, I choose
not to play in a fantasy league.
If you do, that's cool. I'm
not complaining. Anything that
fosters a community of
obsessed sports fans is, in my
opinion, a good thing.
But I knew things were
odd last year at a bar in down-
town Denver. Before a game
with the arch-rival Kansas City
Chiefs, I overheard a fantasy'
fanatic decked in orange and
blue utter the sentence "I hope
the Broncos win, but.I need
Larry Johnson to have a good
game."
Fantasy football or no, this
,was a warped, .twisted uni-
verse.
