about choosing the perfect book.


Time is money for reader


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Cherrie Fox's
third-grade students have a
broad range of interests from
dirt bikes to the Revolutionary
War.
But one shared interest, at
least for the past couple of
weeks, was a cash incentive to
read.
"I read about the
Revolutionary War on
Wednesday," 8-year-old Kelsey
Asumen said, explaining that
her, reading interests include
educational and research books.
"I want to learn more about it."
Meanwhile, 'Rotarick
Baldwin, 9, turned the pages of
Dirt Wheels magazine,' an all-
terrain vehicle rag.
The Walker Memorial
Academy students in Fox's
class spent their afternoon on a
field trip to Bookland at
Lakeshore Mall, where they
were allowed to spend money
earned through reading.
"We wanted them to 'Get a
Reading Fever,"' Fox said,

Don Bates on

retirement from

county board
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands Soil'
and. Water Conservation
District honored Don Bates for
his years of dedicated service
with a luncheon at Chicanes on
Wednesday. Bates was appoint-
ed to the board in November
1991 and was appointed chair-
man in January 1995.
He tendered his resignation
from the board so that he could
run for Highlands County com-
missioner for the District 4 seat
that is currently held by Bob
Bullard. Bullard is not seeking
re-election.
Bates spoke to the board,
staff members and guests about
the difficulty of resigning from
the soil and water board. This
was one of the hardest decisions
he had to make, he said. .
Bates highlighted the many
projects and programs that the
district has been involved with
over the past 60 years to help,
landowners, other organizations
and agency partners to protect
soil, water, and other natural
resources. He spoke about the.


explaining her mission and the
program's slogan.
By keeping a log of how
many minutes they read each
night, the students earned play
money -that was converted into
real money before going to the
bookstore.
Wearing white T-shirts
emblazoned with their own slo-
gans, the children canvassed the
bookstore's magazine rack,
juvenile section and discount
books.
"You see how excited they
are," Dora Smith, mother' of shy
9-year-old Christian Smith, said
as'she helped her son' find some
books. "I think this is great."
With video games and televi-
sion that can consume her chil-
dren's attention for hours at a,
time, Smith said the reading
program was. a welcome diver-
sion.
"I'm seeing a lot of Magic
Treehouse books come
through," Judy Williams, a
store employee, said, as a child
walked up with an intermediate
reader Magic Treehouse.


Wearing a T-shirt witI
clever slogan, "Books are

OBITUARIES
Strnll amonp 10 venues at


Gallery Walk in Sebring


SEBRING Whoever said that it's dead in
Sebring in the summer hasn't been down to the
historic district the last Thursday of each month.
There they would find a large group of people
strolling around the downtown Gallery Walk
venues enjoying music, refreshments and fine art.
The next Walk is from 5-8 p.m. Thursday.
The September theme is "Creative Kids at
Gallery Walk." Entries from Florida Hospital's
Kids Day T-Shirt Contest will be exhibited
around the 10 venues, with the winning entry at
the Highlands Art League. Each child who par-
ticipates will have his or her work on display at
one of the stops. The winning entry will be the,
featured art on the shirts for the Hospital's 5K
race next month.
There is also a Mystery Nursery Rhyme Game
with different clues at all of the venues. When
people solve the clues to recognize the Nursery
Rhyme, they may fill out the entry for the gift
basket drawing. Leave an entry at any of the mer-
chants. The winner will be notified Friday. The
basket will be valued at over $200 this time with
great goodies from 10 places.
The Walk began in February with five stops
and has 10 on the map for September. The big
news this month is that the LK Artworks Gallery,
who has coordinated the walks every month, has
moved,to its new location. It will be open at 104
North Ridgewood Drive, and the owners are
looking forward to unveiling their new location,
new artists and "Little Treasures."
Co-owner Jim Kegley said, "We are really
excited about our new space and know the
Gallery Walk regulars will love the larger room
with high ceilings. Our former space was so
small that many times people had to wait to come
inside."
The LK Artworks Gallery Exhibit will be
"Prolific Palms," featuring palm-related art from
many of their artists. Barbara Albin, will be in
town to launch her- new and amazing "Palm
Angels" series; come. and meet "Abigail" and
"Barb." Chila U. Smith will be exhibiting a few
of her new Highway 27,' Florida scenes. Betty
Heim has hung two colorful watercolor palm
paintings including the one chosen to represent
the Fine Arts Festival last year. Entertainer Steve
Jones, a favorite on the Walks, will be outside,
weather permitting. Since it's "Creative Kids at
Gallery Walk," there will be fruit pizza in addi-
tion to adult fare.
A new venue this month is next door at- 108
Ridgewood the ABC Scrapbooking Store. The
creative owners have donated something really
special for the gift basket: Stop in and observe
some of their Thursday evening scrapbooking
technique class. After a brief Visit and nosh, move
- on to Photography by Mike, 112 Ridgewood-
Drive.
Mike Sawyer is becoming a real wizard at the
computer aspect of photography, and always has
some new creations for visitors to view. He has
some enhanced photos from the recent "Love
Bug" Cruise and a new slide show.
New this month is a must visit store The
Great Atlantic and Pacific Tee Shirt Company.
It's at 239 Ridgewood Drive, on the comer of
Pine Street. Owners Paul and Linda Macke sell
wonderful silk-screened shirts, so they are the
perfect spot for displaying some of the kids, T-
shirt designs. If no one has ever seen the indus-
trial embroidery machines create art on clothing
and hats, they are in for a treat since they will
have them stitching out designs for all to view.

Just up the street at 619 North Pine is Miss
Ruby's Den. Betty and Butler Smith always have
a changing array of antiques and collectibles as
well as African masks and original art. Stop in to
chat and enjoy some great snacks and more Kids

Two great venues at the Highlands Art League
"will be worth the trip to Lakeview. The Yellow
House is hosting an opening reception for Artist
of the Month Owen Jolly. He is a gifted, award-
winning artist who was born in Jamaica and now
lives in Highlands County. He is a contemporary
painter with a strong foundation in classical art.
His large works in oils, pastels and watercolors,
are mainly of people and in the Front Gallery. He
will be teaching pastel classes at the art league
this fall. Also be sure to see the winner of the
Kids Day T-shirt contest on display at the Yellow
House.
Follow the signs at the art league next door to
the museum education building. It's behind the
library and has much to offer Gallery Walk
patrons. Among the artists demonstrating their'
talents will be Betty Francisco and Shirley Stone.
Both are art league instructors for the fall and
.winter classes. Anne Watson, who coordinates
the classes for the art league, is a talented painter
who teaches a very popular oil painting class at
the league. There will be an exhibit of the teach-
ers, works as well as some of the "Creative Kids"
works.
Tosheba Fashions, 115 West Center, has a spe-
cial treat for visitors this month. One-stroke
painting artist and instructor Judy Nicewicz will
be on hand painting beautiful designs on denim
or other clothing items. She can paint whilepe'o-
ple watch or participants can special order any
design they wish. Francisco also has the gift bas-
ket on display that will be given to the winner of
the drawing, so solve the mystery and enter.
New this. month to the Walk is the Circle
Salon. It is located upstairs at 211Circle Park
Drive. Climb upstairs to see the work of Rebecca
Owens, a jewelry designer from San Diego, who
creates chunky, funky, trendy, semi-precious
stones and sterling silver,'one-of-a-kind earrings,
bracelets, necklaces and anklets. Her momr Char
Thompson also from San Diego, will have her
collection of inspirational one-of-a-kind gift
cards with words from poetry writer Lois
Chazen. Candy Gilles of Candy's Creations will
exhibit her beautifully designed silk flower
arrangements, bouquets and grapevine wreaths.
Salon owner Lois Chazen is planning music,
festivities, food and beverages and has promised
a few of her all natural Aveda. products for the gift
basket.
Returning this month is the Gene Brenner
Pottery and Crafts Gallery, 104 Circle Park
Drive. It was a part, of the first Gallery Walk in
February. The gallery has never looked better
with fresh paint, lots of new wheel-thrown pot-
tery, ceramics and several new lines of fused and
blown glass. If no one still hasn't figured out the
Nursery Rhyme, the Brenners can also give a
clue.
Participants may visit the venues in any order,
choose to play the Nursery Rhyme Game or just
visit with friends, make new ones and enjoy an
evening of fine art and entertainment. Casual
Florida attire is -always acceptable. Maps are
available at all locations or on the' Web site at

The Veterans Housing and
Opportunity and Benefits Act
of 2006 was enacted on June
15. Under this Act, the Veterans
Administration is authorized to
provide Specially Adapted
Housing to assist eligible veter-
ans Who are temporarily resid-
ing in a home owned by a fam-
ily member. '
The assistance would be in
the form of a grant to assist the
veteran in adapting the family
member, s home to meet his or
her special needs.
Any veteran who is entitled.
to compensation for permanent
and total service-connected di s-
ability under the following con-
ditions is entitled to a maximum
SAH grant of $50,000 of which
up to $14,000 could be used in
adapting a family, member's

The act changes the one-time

used once, even if the full
amount was not used.
A veteran ma\ now use his or

of the Act of Aug. 24, 1935.
Agriculture Secretary Mike
Johannes authorized the use of 1
$250 million from Section 32
funds in October.2005 for crop
disaster, livestock, tree, and
aquaculture assistance.
The Livestock Indemnity
Program provides payments to
eligible livestock owners and
contract growers who incurred
the death of livestock due to the
hurricanes. The Feed Indemnity
Program provides payments to
eligible livestock owners and.
cash lessees who suffered feed
losses or increased .feed costs

in action."
Adomo had no involvement
with the injunction case until
attorney Donald Hemke lost the
emergency relief hearing Sept.
1.
She requested another emer-
gency hearing Sept. 14, citing
several county officials' dire
warnings.
But, the rains have slowed
and the borrowed pumps have
changed the situation there. ,
A non-emergency hearing
has been tentatively scheduled
for December.
One of the issues plaguing
SpringLake is the question of
who has control over the pump-
ing permit South Florida
Water Management District or
the court.
As part of Adomno's renewed
request to modify the injunc-
tion, she is asking the court to
revisit inverse condemnation,
which 'was one of the counts
when Tyrrell .brought her suit
against the district in 2000..
Kevin Ashley, Tyrrell's attor-
ney, said the court dismissed


the count before the case went
before a jury.
The ruling, which at the time
was in SpringLake's favor, was
made because the judge said the
statute of limitations expired.
In requesting inverse con-
demnation, Tyrrell claimed that
SpringLake had already seized
her property due to the flooding
she was suing them over. But,
the court said that the flooding
had been ongoing for more than
four years, essentially ruling
that she waited too long to
make that claim.
Adorno, in her motion, .said
September's flooding which
occurred due to the combined
events of- Ernesto and
SpringLake's adherence to the
injunction created a new
case for inverse condemnation,
unrelated to any prior claims.
Ashley said Thursday he did-
n't know-' what to make of
Adorno's argument.,
As of Friday, both attorneys
were in agreement that an emer-
gency situation does not exist at
SpringLake.

TOFFIN IT

SChristopher Tuffley


You can't

trust a horse
New s-Sun Executi\e Editor
Romona Washincton envied
me this assignment. learning
about being a barn manager at
the Heartland Horses &.
Handicapped barn near Ridge
Area Arc on College Dni\e in
A'on Park.
She grew utip around horses
and io\es them. More to the
point, routine chores of horse
care. a burden ot work for
some. ha\e been a treasured
hobbi to her.
NIs sister \.as the 'ame wa)
When she \\as a teen.
NMe. Not so much.
NMl problem with horses
begins lv.ith a lie. Visiting a
friend o\er a iseekend while a
sophomore in high school. I
twas asked b\ his mother if I
had exer ndden a horse.
At that point my horse
experience was confined to
riding the nierr -go-round. and
it was of those horses I \jas
thinking when I said yes.
I \was a childhood Robin
Hood and Lone Ranger fan. I
had dreamed of riding a horse
all mi life i m\ sister. youngerr
than 1. hadn't started riding
yet I I\as afraid m. friend's
mother wouldn't let me go on
the ride if I said no.
I should of knowv.n there w as
a reason she w\ worried.
It turned out that riding a'
horse was a lot different from
h'at I expected b\ which I
mean it %was a lot further off
the ground.

HORSE
Continued from 11A
I was nervous right from the
start, but all went well. My
friends rode ahead, and the
,horse, seeming to understand
my inexperience, was content
Sto walk. Until, that is, we
arrived at the final section of
trail the section leading
down to the stables and their
nice, clean stalls and fresh food
and water.
No wonder the horse began
to pick up speed, despite my
hollering whoa. No wonder he
ended up in a full gallop, slip-
ping and sliding as he went,_.
oblivious of me on his back.


Did I mention that the trail
was steep, deeply rutted and
strewn with stones?
Of course I fell off the horse
in a spectacular way, and was
so quickly surrounded byso
many frantic adults no one
thought to get me back up in
the saddle.
I can assure you it didn't
enter my mind. To this day one
leg is slightly longer than the
other.
But'that's the reason I still
have a healthy distrust of hors-
es. And this is why I was a tick
uncomfortable arriving at the
barn Thursday morning.
Horses are big. That's the
first thing I remembered.
Even ponies are big think


Ongle) hopes more people will find the value of riding horses. She
said individuals don't have to have catastrophic disabilities. For
example, she believes those suffering from depression can benefit, as
well as children with attention deficit disorder. "We still have room
on Saturdays.' she said. And volunteers are alua.s welcome.

a sense of the size differential.
But their world was a

As barn manager Joy
Ongley and I moved down the
line of stalls with our pails of
feed, an almost musical, posi-
tively choral, neighing began
which was joyful in tone.
It turns out horses are a lot
like dogs. They have distinct
personalities, and their intelli-
gence runs the gamut from
dense as a post to sharp as a
tack.
And like dogs, when they
are eating, even the most affa-
ble among them has only a one
track mind. I wouldn't get,
between the hbrse and its din-
ner dish, let's just put it that
way.

Except, as Ongle. pointed'

I mucked out a stall v iti a
pitch fork that looked more
like a giant, bright red Afro

health or treat ailments.
It turns out dealing. \. ith e

Horses are prolific makers of

horses are high maintenance.

Ranger suits up for Fire Strike Team
Ranger suits up for Fire Strike Team


Park Ranger Scott W.
Paterson began working at
Highlands Hammock in April
2005. Scott, a 1976 graduate of
Sebring High School, has been
married to his wife, Marie, for
15 years. They have one son,
one grandson, and another on
the way. Scott's lived in Sebring
for nearly 42 years, but you
can't call him a native since he
was bom in Flint, Mich. He did
grow up in Fort Myers Beach
though, and the whole family,
including his parents, Francis
and Frances' Paterson, still
reside here in Sebring.
Scott
S c o t t
said he
remembers
coming out
to the
Hammock
as a kid,
and always
thought the
rangers had
THE REAL an interest-
ing job. As
FLORIDA he grew up,
___ he worked
Dorothy Harris in con-
sttruc Lion,
restaurant
management, retail manage-
ment, and eventually for the
Department of Corrections
Scott said, "I always wanted
to work outdoor-s and I really
missed working in the commu-
nity. I knew I needed a chance.
Working here is so peaceful.,
This job causes me no stress at
all, when I compare it \ ith in
previous one." Later he added,
"I just look do% n the road and
see a doe and her fawns;, cross-
ing over, and the stress melts
away."
Scott also likes that his
grandson tells him, "-Grandp.."
now you've got a cool job.".
Scott seems to wholeheartedly
a2ree, since he's loved this park
since he was just a.young boy
: himself. Scott laughed and said,
"Why I've been in Sebring for
so long that I can remember
when U.S. Highway 27 was just
two-lanes."
His favorite way to enjo\ the

Do you like animals?
If you are like me, it depends
on the type of animal. For
example, I love my cute beagle,
who at this moment is snug-
gling next to me as I type this
column. He is smelling quite
nice thanks to the bath he just
had, though he probably doesn't
appreciate it. On the other hand,
I am taking a dim view of the
mosquitoes that apparently
have been snacking on me this
evening.
There are some animals it is
hard to hate. Pandas are an
example. I mean, come on, can
you think of anyone that does-
n't like pandas? My cynical 17 -
year-old doesn't even dislike
pandas.
So perhaps I can understand
why a man by the name of
Zhang Xinyan might have felt
like hugging a panda bear at the'
zoo. This does not, in and of
itself, explain why he did so.
Well, the four pitchers of
beer Zhang consumed before he
went to the zoo might go a long
way' to explaining why.

chairman of the Highlands

participating in our senior's-
voter registration assembly at
Sebring High School on Sept.
21. -
In addition, I want acknowl-
edge Joe Campbell, supervisor
of elections for Highlands
County, and his staff for con-
ducting the registration.
Finally, to the Democratic

not participating (maybe that is,
why we are the minor party).

Editor:
It has been my great pleasure
to deal with this very good
organization. I purchased a
Scion XA from salesman John
Cruz and Sean Faber. My expe-
rience with these two men and
with Jed in service has been so
very excellent. Mr. Faber has
been transferred to the Nissan
dealership, so therefore I have
dealt with John Cruz since
then.
My Scion XA is a wonderful
vehicle. I have been impressed
with the car's performance,
comfort and reliability. The
service department is very
responsive and thorough. The
training, politeness and knowl-
edge of everyone involved is
terrific.
Alan, you have a wonderful .
organization and are to be com-
mended for your leadership.

Apparently after
his liquid refresh-

to the nearby

Beijing zoo.
Somehow he got
into the panda enclosure and
came 'upon a 6-year-old male
panda named (I am not kidding)
Gu Gu.
Zhang had seen pandas on
television and noted that they
appeared to get along with peo-
ple quite nicely. He then decid-,
ed he wanted to give the panda
a nice hug.
Have you ever seen the
Discovery Channel television
show "Mythbusters?" The two
hosts of that particular show
constantly warn the viewers not
to try what they, are about to see
at home. Such a warning proba-
bly should have been put on the,
TV show Zhang saw about pan-
das, though after four pitchers
of beer he might have forgotten
it.. '
Anyway, Gu Gu was startled
to see a drunk man, trying to hug


him. So, he did
what any startled
wild animal might
do in such a situa-
tion: He bit Zhang


in the leg.
Zhang was a bit
perturbed to be spurned in such
a manner, so he kicked the
panda. Gu Gu then bit his other
leg.
Now, at this point, you or I,
or, anyone else who had not
indulged in four pitchers of
beer, would have figured it was
time to put major distance
between us. and the ticked-off
panda. Not Zhang. He decided
what was good for the drunk
was good for the panda and he
bit back.
, Well, to be accurate, he bit
the panda's back. Zhang later
observed that the panda's skin
was "quite thick." Since Gu Gu
apparently escaped injury, it
would seem human teeth \%ere
no match for it.
At some point, some tourists
noticed that Gu Gu had compa-
ny and alerted a zookeeper, who


sprayed the panda with water to
get if under control.
Zhang was hospitalized. The
article I read about the incident
did not indicate if Zhang was in
trouble for trying to get up close
and personal with Gu Gu.
According to a zoo official, Gu
Gu was off the hook punish-
mentwise, something that ought
to comfort the critter.
So, the lessons of this tale? I
can think of several. One, the
only safe panda to hug is a
stuffed one. Two, panda skin
beats human teeth.
Third lesson? The only good
decision one can make after
four pitchers of beer is togo to
bed and swear off alcohol for
the rest of your life. Better yet,
decide not to even have the first
pitcher. Had Zhang learned the
third lesson first, maybe he
wouldn't have stitches up and
down his legs.

Hospice was the

needed comfort
Editor:
For the past two months our
family has had the privilege of
allowing Good Shepherd
Hospice to take care of my
father, Arnold Follien. Contrary
to the dictionary definition, of
hospice, which means lodging
maintained by a religious order,
there are other definitions that
immediately come to my mind:
caretakers, mother, sister, loved
one, friend, angels from God
and the list would go on and on.


Finding
Moving to a new
city is. never easy.
.Moving to a new
state is even harder.
I moved from
Knoxville, Tenn.,
-(yes, I'm a
University of
Tennessee graduate,
but don't hold it
against me) a little
over a month ago.
I'm just beginning
my second month as
a reporter here at the
News-Sun, and it's
been quite a wonder-
ful experience so far.


I've already learned plenty of
new things since I've been
down here, both about the com-,
munity and about myself.
And living in Florida is,
needless to say, a lot different
than living in Tennessee. For
one thing, this has been my first
experience with. lizards running
around everywhere. I'm still
not sure if I'm OK with that or
not.
I've also learned that hurri-
canes/tropical storms absolute-
ly scare me to death. I was
absolutely petrified during
Ernesto, a storm that ended up
being nothing: So whenever the
next big storm bears down on
us, pay no attention to the big
guy running up and down the


Sonne heie in be ecen would
be the \orid nurse.
I do not kno\ what e the
family of Arnold Follien, would
have done without our Hospice'
Team (Violet). Words cannot-
express our sincere gratitude to
Kirsten Soby, registered nurse.
You held a special place in my
dad's heart from day one. Your
compassionate spirit, my dad
spoke of often. Your medical
knowledge, gentleness and
never wavering spirit meant so
much to my mother and our
family.
When we had to have contin-
uous care, Michelle Hendry,


.lcensed.-pracical nurse. came
in. When her shift ended. \we
-hated to see her leave, because
she, was so gentle with dad.
Then in came Victoria "Vicki"
Neese, LPN, who fell right into
Michelle's and Kirsten's foot-
steps. We felt so fortunate, we
had the best care possible for
my dad.
It is obvious that this is not
just a job for any of you. You
have truly been blessed in your
life calling.
Thank you.

streets screaming. I'll
tire out eventually.
. I'm also apparent-
ly a jinx on profes-
sional sports teams.
My beloved Vols
went 5-6 my last year
there (not to mention
that very painful'loss
to the hated Gators
last week), and now
the Bucs and
Dolphins are down-
right awful. I blame
myself. Luckily, I
can't make the Devil
Rays any worse than


they are now.
A few other quick things I've
come to know about the area:
The ,people, of Highlands
County are incredibly nice and
helpful, which makes my job a
lot easier.
Electricity is incredibly
expensive. So is cable. And
telephone. And everything else
I didn't budget enough money
for.
Doing U-turns on U.S. 27 is
much more fun than I thought it
would be. It's like my own pri-
vate (albeit, not very good)'
roller coaster.
And I still haven't seen any
alligators. Maybe the lizards ate
them.
On a different note, the
Sebring Library is a fantastic

manipulate the public are most prone to denounce.'

place to go. (I haven't been to
the other branches yet, but I'm
sure they're just as good.) And
if you're there, look for "The
Great Deluge" by Douglas
Brinkley.
The book is an exhaustive
retelling of the horrific after-
math .of Hurricane Katrina.
Brinkley interviews just about
everyone imaginable to tell the
story, from those in the govern-
ment, to those who were out
saving people, to those that
needed saving. The book also
talks in detail about the sheer
destruction 'along the
Mississippi and Alabama Gulf
Coasts.
Brinkley is a ,vell-regarded
historian, and his book presents
the disaster from just about
every angle possible. It's hard
not to feel angry at the way the
government, both local and fed-
eral, completely failed the vic-
tims of the hurricane and flood.
It's a sad story, but it's a story
that needs to be told. Brinkley
writes in a clear, concise man-
ner and sums up the horrific
experience for many of the peo-
ple who suffered.
On a lighter note, thanks to
everyone who has helped me
out, and thanks to all of those
that will hopefully help out in
the future. I've really enjoyed
my time here so far, and I look
forward to the good times
ahead.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Slippery


footing
Water sports are not my
forte.
But tubing on a lazy
river in Georgia seemed
doable as long as I was
tethered to my husband
Ken's tube so we wouldn't
get separated. Just in case.
Besides Ken and me,
our party consisted of our,
firefighter son who had
just completed swift water
rescue training in Colorado
a far cry from this
slow-moving river; our
youngest son, daughter-in-
law and 18-month-old
grandson, who loves
splashing around his bath;
but bemoaned tubing for
most ofthe tho hours.:/
As we moseyed on
down the river more slow -
ly than xwe had expected.
our grandson snuggled
Sw ith momi or dad while:
reminding us- of his dis-
pleasure. And. our fire.-
fighter could ha'e '%alked
faster and dragged the tube
behind him. .
We worked a little to
free oursel hes from rocks
and even hit a few swifter
spots forthe tiniest of
Ihnlls. I was happy I'd
come: Net still gladto be.
connected to Ken's tube.
At the end of the jour-
nes. our children left their
tubes and climbed the
stone stairs ay to axw ait us.
Right about that time. Ken
redirected our tubes to gal-
landt rescue a stray one
floating b%.
He got out of the tube to
try and reach it. I remained
in mine. Until he said that
he w ished I'd get out and
help him. I'd done that
before, so. wh\ not?
Mind you. he %was stand-,
ing in water just barely
above his ankles as the
nrer's depth had been
most of the \wa. So, I
stepped out confident, -
onl\ to sink to mn chest in
the murkiest. slimiest
s\\ater I'd ever encoun-
tered.
No matter \ hat I did. I
'couldn't get m\ footing.
When I tried to get back in
the tube. it flipped over my
head and pushed me down
again. I was quite the spec-
tacle. I'm sure. I begged
my rescuer son to pull me
up o\er the rocks which
he flatly refused to do not-
ing their unsafe, sharply
jagged edges.
Sizing up the situation,
Ken let the other tube go
and concentrated on our
son's calm instructions -
getting me to where I
could stand and climb
back into the tube. I -was
drenched and embarrassed.
but not hurtn. .
Recently. Read
Proerbs 12: 4 in The
Message, which says,;
"You can't find firm foot-
ing in a sw amp, but life
rooted in God stands
firm." -
Immediately. I remem-
bered how I telt that dav.
Where it was rocks. I had
Firm footing, but, slipped
in the slimy water hole.
This experience accom-
panied by this verse paints
a picture in my mind that
reaffirms the security of
rooting my life securely in
God, my Rock. Selah.

Missionaries at work


Belize mission trip spans generations, develops bonds


By JAN MEROP
,' -I'.S luM :',.', '. ndt LI
SEBRING It didn't matter rf they were 14 or 85.
When the call %went out for volunteers to assist a mis-
sionary teacher in Belize. Central America. people of
all ages from Covenant Presbyterian Church
responded.
Two 14-year-old boy s, indch iduals and cou-
ples from 30 to 70 years old along with
perhaps the spriest of the bunch, an 85-year- -
old put their names on the list.
One of the participants, Dan Shaw% er. con- -
tacted the denomination's mission agency in
Atlanta to locate one of Covenant
Presbyterian's missionaries for a short-term
trip that %wouldn't require travel to the
other side of the world.
Nlissionars teacher and administrator
Carla Stelens in Belize was their
answ er.
Mark Breed, chairman of the -
missions committee %who had gone
on a short-term Nicaraguan tnp
several years ago. helped organ-
ize the trip to Belize %with Dan
Shawv er.
"I had never organized a mis-
sion trip before." Breed said. "So
' when 10 signed up. I was a little
discouraged as I had hoped for a larg-
er group."
However. Shawler \\as excited since he \
hadn't thought they'd get that man..
The Presbyterian Church of America a
fundamental, evangelical and conservative arm ,
of the Presbsterian Church thought 10 %was
great.
It was, a matter of perspective. And perspec-
tise %was something they would apply to the / .
%whole trip whether working and associating ''
w ith one another or with the locals.
"Our mission board in Atlanta reminded .,'

bus for a two hour tmp to Corozal on the North end of
Belize.
"This was an all-day affair." Breed said. "'And we
\were getting our first glimpse of the cultural differ-
ences.
But. as the \work week took off. the group was
bussed at 8 a.m. to their work site Concepcion
Elementar) School, the Christian school of Stevens.
After\vorking either in the school or outside, they
\were picked up at 2 p.m. to be driven to Xaibe where
they conducted Vacation Bible School. Then at 5:30
p.m.. they were bussed back to Corozal for the night.
A little reprieve from culture differences came \with
their air-conditioned motel accommodations.
Exhausted, the\ slept soundly and repeated the sched-
I ule the next day.
n Breed, an attorney in Sebring. is accustomed to sit-
e ting in an air-conditioned office behind a desk. His
s tools are his pencil and a computer keyboard and
e screen. Consequently, digging a 10-foot by 10-foot
s hole at eight feet deep for a future septic tank was a
r culture shock for him.
e "Not only am I unaccustomed to working in the
e heat, but their soil is not sandy like ours. Its gooey.
g clay like consistency\ is filled with rocks. And since
the ladies did the painting and staining of wood doors
and frames; and, since I'm not an electrician or a
plumber, the "pit' as we began to call it. was my
assignment."
Ho%\ easy to think about a backhoe thai could make
short work of such a project here in the States.
Instead, they took their pick axes and shovels and got
to work. Unfortunately, by Thursday of that week
\with si\ of them working, they'd only dug about two
feet down.
Another outlook that Americans are accustomed
to is how building is accomplished here.
"We start with an architect, go to the bank to bor-
row% money, build and eventually get a certificate of
occupancy before we can mole in. Not so there."

Don't be rude and speak



in unfamiliar language


News-Sun correspondent Pauline Au Yang
'provides etiquette tips for readers on the last
Sunday of each month in the Lifestyle section.

One woman asked, "Is it me or does anyone
else think this behavior is annoying, 'classless
and down right rude?"
"Have you ever been in a conversation and
have the discussion disrupted by someone flu-
ent in more than one language, but choose to6
speak in an unknown language to a-member of
your party?" .
It is disrespectful and insulting to the group,-
if the member of your party responds in an
unknown language.
When in the company of others and you are'
addressed 'by someone speaking-your native
tongue, respond in the language whichh is
familiar to your group. If the matter is private,
the correct thing to do is to excuse yourself:
from the group and speak to your
associate/friend. If the group cannot be privy
* to the conversation, then the matter should be
discussed elsewhere.

Foggy notions discovered in library


Although cooler weather has come
to the northern states, we really have to
consult our calendars to determine that
fall has actually arrived. Having few
trees and shrubs that drop their leaves
in order to go dormant, our seasonal
change is subtler. One of the signs of
fall is the morning fog. There, are dif-
ferent kinds of fog, but the main type
we seem to have on the way to work
(or breakfast) is steam fog, ,which
forms over water. Precipitation fog
also can form when rain falls into drier
air below the rain clouds. While the,
water vapor increases the moisture
content of the air as.it cools it, this sat-

urated air allows fog to form. Late in our winter,
when our skies are .clear and our nights are at
their- coldest, it is possible for radiation fog to
form. According to www.USATODAY.com, our
area of Florida garners between 20-40 days per
year of hea% N fog. while the Keys experience less
than 10 days per year.
Fog is such.a common weather occurrence that
writers for all age groups have incorporated it
into their titles and stories. Our Easy reader
books include one b\ the famous author and illus-
trator Tomie de Piola. "Songs of the Fog
Maiden." The fog maiden sings her songs before
.and after her nihitl. tra\els over the e1rnh
Expressing the common fear of being unable to
see in a fog, author Joanne Ryder's book "Fog in
the Meadow" has a fog rollin' in, causing anxi-
ety t? the small meadow animals now hidden
from each other, until the nighthawk communi-
cates a comforting message to them from over-
head. "Fog Drift Morning" by Deborah K. Ray
tells about a. mother, and daughter who gather
blueberries: in the niit\ morning quiet at the
seashore. Fog on the water is one of the condi-
tions boat owners have to, cope with, so Consuelo
Joerns' book "Foggy Rescue" finds Benjamin,
Toby, and baby Mouse encountering unexpected
adventures at sea before finding their ship-
wrecked father and sailing home through the fog.
Juvenile readers have a number of titles to
enjoy "Fog .Magic,"' "Whispers jn the Fog" (a
Nancy Drew book), "Fog Island," "The Fog


Burns Off by 11 O'clock" and
"Footsteps in the Fog: Still More Not-
So-Scary Stories."
Prolific young adult writer Caroline
Cooney's addition to our shelves is
simply named "The Fog," or you can
take home the Leon Garfield book,
"Devil-in-the-Fog."
Where do you think this recipe book
originated "Fog City Diner
Cookbook?" My guess is Chicago or
San Francisco, but it could just as well
be somewhere .in Oregon or
Washington, all of which have more
than 60 days a year of heavy fog.
I don't know exactly how they work


it in, but these writers get all misty about their
titles: William L..DeAndrea's "Killed in the Fog:
A Matt Cobb Mystery," Dianne Day's "Fire and
Fog: A Fremont Jones Mystery," David Morrell's
"League of Night and Fog," Thomas Tessier's
"Fog Heart" or Andre Dubus III's "House of
Sand and Fog."
Two DVD titles worth seeing: "The Fog of
\War," 'the story of America as seen through the
eyes of former Secretary of Defense Robert S.
McNamara, who served under presidents John F.
Kennedy and Lydon B. Johnson, and "Murder!"
Amnesia is a fog of the mind, which, leads to the
con iction of an actress; for the-murder of her
actress friend. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, this
one keeps, you biting your nails to the climactic,
end'. ,
Amnesia: isn't the onl\ condition to cause
fuzzy thinking; take home "Out of the Fog:
Treatment Options and Coping Strategies for
Adult Attention Deficit Disorder."
Larry Beinhart tries to locate solid ground in
his "Fog Facts:' Searching for Truth in the Land of
Spin." Borrow this from Okeechobee County
Library by reserving the title.

Art on exhibit at Florida Hospital


SEBRING The Arts and

that artist Trent Frost has an
exhibit 'on display through Oct.
1 in the Sebring main lobby.
Frost is a native of southern
Vermont, the haunt of artist
Norman Rockwell and poet
Robert Frost. Frost began col-
lecting vintage cars at age 11-
and owned many of the, vehi-
cles depicted in these scenes.


Enriched in adolescence by
New England's local color and
for 30 years thereafter by the
untamed beauty of Northern
New York, Frost has given
expression to his board of treas-

Preparing a cool season vegetable garden


September is the perfect
month to start preparing garden
beds for fall season vegetables.
Growing vegetables in the
fall has several advantages. The
destructive insects aren't as
numerous and won't create as
much of a problem as they do in
the summer. You'll also strug-
gle less with weeds because the
weeds will germinate less fre-
quently and grow slower than
they do in the warmer seasons.
Of course, the cooler tempera-
tures make gardening work a
more pleasurable experience.
There are several things you
should consider before you get
started. Where do you want
your garden beds? Your garden'
should get five to six hours of
full sunlight in the middle of the
day. If you must compromise,
remember that fruiting vegeta-
bles like tomatoes, peppers,
squash and cucumbers require
the most sunlight. Leafy crops


like lettuce, broccoli, collards
and cabbage can stand more
shade. You should plant your
rows stretching north to south if
possible. This keeps taller
plants from casting shadows on
shorter plants.
Remember that the winter
months in our area are quite dry,
so supplemental irrigation
should be easily accessible. If
your house has gutters, you
should consider putting a rain
barrel at one of the downspouts
located near your garden. If you
install the' barrel on cinder
blocks to raise it above ground
level, you should be able to use
gravity to your advantage when
hooking a garden hose up to
your rain barrel. A garden hose
hooked up to my rain barrel can
get water to citrus trees located
50 feet away.
Soil condition is another
important consideration. If you
are creating a new garden, you


will probably need to
amend the soil.
Florida's sandy soils
may not provide all
the nutrients your
vegetables need. A
simple soil test avail-
able at the county
extension office will
provide you the
information you need NEWS
about soil pH. Most T
garden .crops will do
well with a soil pH of WATE
6.2 to 6.8. By having
the soil pH tested Jennife
prior to tilling the -
soil, you will know if
you need to add lime or sulfur
to adjust the soil to more alka-
line or more acid. With a hand
spade, take soil samples at least
six to eight inches deep from 10
different areas of the garden
putting each spade full into the
same bucket. Mix well and
remove about one cup of this


FROM

HE

ERSHED

'r Abbey


mixture and place in a
plastic bag. Bring the
bag to the extension
office located at the
Highlands County
Agri-Civic Center for
testing. The fee for
the first sample is
$2.50 and any sample
after that is $2. After
about a week you
should get your test
results and you can
start preparing the
garden prior to plant-
ing.
For a small garden,
you'll want to use a


shovel or spading fork to pre-
pare the soil to a depth of about
12 inches. It is important that
the soil is dry enough to turn.
You should remove any peren-
nial turf grasses and woody
plant material like roots or
stems. Any amendments recom-
mended by the soil test can be


tilled or spaded in at this time.
Compost or other organic mat-
ter can also be added. Animal
manure may be added, but you
should allow sufficient time for
it to decompose before you
plant. It will take at least three
weeks or more for this material
to sufficiently
decompose.
Adding organic matter pro-
vides many benefits to your
garden soil. It improves the
condition and water holding
capacity of the soil while
adding nutrients and beneficial
soil organisms. Organic matter
releases the nutrients slowly
and also releases acids when it
decomposes. These acids will
help change insoluble minerals
into soluble forms that the plant
can use. Having an active com-
post pile close to your garden
site will assure that you have a
constant supply of this valuable
soil amendment.


If you start preparing your
soil in September, you should
be ready to plant by the first of
October. You will be planting
what are considered "cool-sea-
son" vegetables. Some of the
most popular are broccoli, cab-
bage, carrots, cauliflower, col-
lards, lettuce, onions, peas,
spinach and turnips. You should
also broadcast a complete fertil-
izer (6-6-6) at planting time
even if compost was added.
Vegetables grow very quickly
and require a quick source of
nutrients for development.
Soil is the base for plant
growth, and much attention
should be paid to getting and
keeping it in the best condition.

resources specialist with the

BELIZE
Continued from 1C

In Belize, they need the
space and take it any way they
can get it. If there's a roof over
the building, they mno e in. as
is. And, so, the school was lit-
tle more than a shell, but open
and in session.
They worked in empty
rooms or even right in the
classrooms with the teachers
and students.
During.their breaks thiough-
out the school day, the children
would rush outside or to the
rooms to i% watch the teams at
work. Stevens had them all
laughing when she told them
the children like to see gringos
come down and work like
dogs.
However, local Belizeans
%worked on the job sites as w%.ell
And one of the places the)
really appreciated their help
\vas at Vacation Bible School.


VBS perspectives
Today in the States, Vacation
Bible School is quite a produc-
tion. Wonderful sets depicting
jungles, mountains and far
away places take time, staff
and immense creativity.
Children walking into these
settings are then mci\ed from
station to station for stories.
music, crafts, snacks arid out-
door activities. But in third
Nw world cou entries, simplicity suf-
fices.
"Our team \<-%a asked to
pack one suitcase for their
clothing and another full of
craft supplies organized by one
'of the participants, Audrey
Smith. She and her husband
Harold have served on the mis-
sion field in the past," Breed'
said.
The supplies consisted of.
consiructiou p.iper, glue. scis-
sors, cra, ons, mniarkers. glitter
and the like. Simple supplies
that brought smiles and delight
to these children %ho ha\e so
little.


Since the mission agency in
Atlanta had told them to con-
duct Vacation Bible School mi
Enghsh. they followed their
instrucutons. But, the mother
tongue is Spanish coming from
a Mai an descent.
"We learned a couple of
songs in Spanish and sang
those along \.ith the children.
They really enjoyed this and
appreciated that we could sing
in their language." Breed said.
-They're taught English in
school. but don't practice at
home rather speaking their
heart language."
Se eral moms stayed to help

word of mouth. The first day
they started out with 10-12.
kids. But, as the afternoon
wore on, the numbers grew to
30.
"Day by day the numbers
increased until by Thursday,
we had 100 children in a room
that was not designed to hold
that many. It was barely con-,
trolled chaos, but fortunately
we had enough moms to help,"
Breed said.
The children squished
together on 10 portable bench-
es. When it was time to do
crafts, they simply turned
around and kneelcd on the con-
crete. floor using the benches as
t.ibles and working in the natu-
ral lih ht

he let her finish the presenta-
tion sure thai she v.as doing a


far better job than he could.
"All the children then,
prayed together. Only the Lord
knows the results," Breed said.

Impact perspective
Trinps to third world coun-
tries don't just happen. The
planning must include getting,
the necessary shois such as
tetanus, typhoid, diphtheria and
taking malaria pills. Passports
had to be applied for or
renewed. And those who did
not have the money had to
raise $1,300.'
One member wondered if,
% writing a check for $13,000
would help them more than
sending 10 people down there
But it's a matter of impact
and perspecti e.
"Our presence meant so
much to our missionary Carla'
Ste'. ens. For her and those to.
whom x'e ministered, it blessed
them to know iwe'd giie up
acatiorn time and do menial
labor for them." Breed said.
The relationships w; ith the


local people and the children
could not have taken place if
only a check was sent.
'The kids 'iere just beautiful
inside and outside. They
seemed so pleased and loved
the crafts, no matter how sim-
ple.:They beamed and were
enthralled \\ith the colorful
things," Breed said. "To expe-
rience their appreciation and
sense how happy the\ were
that \,.c would caje enough to
come do\r n and spend time
\ ith them is priceless."
Spanning generations within
this [eam created a cohesive
bond and respect for one .
another. Eg erN one got along
%ell together Breed \ blessed to' hae his son Andrew
along as %\ell as his nephew\
Will Heston. who came ibh
Breed's sister Charlotte
"Who knows this maN
ha\e an, impact onn m\ kids for
missions one das and that
$1.300 \ ill hae multiple
returns on the original in\est-
ment.'" Breed said.

Th.it v- w h she believes this
trip was especially flituful for
the teens The) learned to see
lio\w other people lit\e: how to
get along and v.ork together as
a team Nlostil. she could see
the great joy they got out of
know inLi the\ ,ere cwntributing
to the well beinc of others.
:Will Heston celebrated his
14th bu-thd.a ithe day the\ left
for the trip.
"They .,an'. to me in the air-
port arid again on the plane.
The) almost sa.in a third time,
but I got them to stop." Will
said.
Will said that it wv.as really
worth going and .seeing another
culture firsthand. He especiallN
enjoyed pla ing '\ ith the chil-
dren at V'acation Bible School.
"The kids \eie so nice E\en
though the nl ma\ not liie in the
nicest houses or ha\e the things
,we ha\e,'" he said. "I ne\er
heard them complain. The\
seemed so content. The) uist
love where the\ hI\e "
He found it intriguing to lis-
ten in on then studies and hol\
they were leaning nouns and
pronouns like \we do here. Yet
*they had so much less to work
v with in their schools E\en their


desks and chairs \were beaten
up. And, no computers. In fact
, they would staln school w without
lights or the building being
completed.
"It made me more grateful
for the schools we ha'e here,"
Will said.
SWill \.as on pit duty. digging
the hole for the septic tank. The
dirt -\as so muck) it stuck to
their shoes.
"I came out ot the pit each
da\ two inches taller." lie said
with a laugh.
He w\as also amazed by. their
bathrooms which consisted of a
"wooden bo\ o\er a hole in the
ground The septic digging will
help get indoor plumbing for
di: school.
The teens. w\ho are cousins,
-,ere som exhausted at the end of
the day. the\ didn't e\en eat
supper Jist snacked in their
room and went to sleep
But. Will. too. \\as taken
imostl. b\ the irresistible charm
of the children. Eben the sim-
plest thing like blowing bub-
bles delighted them. He
%would gladly go again.
Andre\\ Breed. 14. agreed.
The children most definitely
touched their hearts.


"lM\ faiorJte time was when
%we were w working ,with the kids
n.ith VBS stuff. Tlihe really
loaed the puppet presentations.
\\e als.o played soccer %with
them which the', really liked."
Breed said
He could see ho\\ they -were
used to ha\ ini less stuff and
w\as amazed at how they did
school work while the building
continued to be under construc-
tion.
-"We tried to be somewhat
quiet know% ing the\ -\ere in ses-_
sion while we worked." Breed.
said.
But Breed %was no stranger to
the hard work of the pit and did
his share with pick a\ and sho\ -
el.
When asked it he \would go
back again, he said. "In a heart-
beat."
The friendships built in just a,
.week with the kids w,.ould easily
draw him back No that he could
continue working with them.
""It i\as sad to leave and see
all of them \. a\ing to us as we
got on the bus." Breed said.
For now. short-term missions
is something he'd like to do
again and. maybe, missions
could be in his future.

History Lesson
35 Years Ago
Sept.23, 1971: Astounded
by the outstanding ability
of Bo.Bo Weaver, the Blue
Streak fans saw Sebring
fall 37-7 at the hands of
the Punta Gorda Tarpons.
Weaver did everything a
player could do. He called
the signals on offense,
read the signals on defense
and gained 88 of the
Tarpons 168 yards rushing.,
QB Charlie Lanier stood
out for the Streaks, carry-
ing the ball eight times for
about 5.5 yards per carry.


Trivia Time
Of the 26 teams in the NFL
When Monday Night,
Football was first
broadcast in 1970,
which was the last
team to appear in a
Monday night game?

Lake Placid makes

unbeaten Frostproof

work hard for win
By MARCUS WILKINS
LAKE PLACID MNost coaches shi\ ama\ from
the phrase "moral victorr'."
Lake Placid coach Shay. _Maddo\. although he
didn't use those words specifically. knew Friday
night's performance \\.as just that.
After falling to running back Carlton Thomas and
the Frostproof Bulldogs 42-26, Maddo\ appreciated
the progress being made b:, his embattled Green
Dragon squad.
"These gui S. a hen theN made up then mind they
wanted to pla\, played \.ith a dang good football
team tonight," Maddo,. said after the game "'The
thing I've been complaining about the -w hole time is
that we weren't gi'.inig this kind ot r
Frostproof
effort. If we do that, we'll be fine pla ro ,
ing people in our league and our size." 2
That dangg cood football team" is
headed-up by a "dan'g good" ruling LakePlacid
back one of the best preps in the 26
countrI. actually Thomas showed a i2 W

his season total 1.332 through fi\e ati Mhlbem,
games. The lightnng-quick tailback .:'i Fnd3,.
gabshed the Dragons for .si' touch-
dowxns. including break-at.a. scores ol 73. 55 and
52 \ards.
Aside from tackling Thonias. Lake Placid looked
phenomenal in all phases Frida\ night. The defense
managed to secure t ho fumbles and minimize team
penalnes while taking advantage of Bulldog flags.
The blocking and running game were consistent and
speciall teams were solid.
A. steady attack of Stephen Gisit. \ho topped out
w ith 26 carries and b16 \ards. mo\ed the Lake
Placid orfense all night long. The Dragons made a
statement' earl',, taking the ball after the opening
kickotl for a 13-pla6. 6-1-\ard drite capped b\ a 1-

On the ensuting kickoff. E\aton Baile\ came up

14-1) lead, but the Frostproof defense buckled do% wn
keeping the Dragons out of the end zone after a first-
and-goal from the 10.

* DRAGONS
S Continued from 1D
Through one quarter of play,
Frostproof hadn't run one play
from scrimmage. It didn't take
long for the tide to change when
the Bulldogs took over on
S downs on their own 2-yard line.
After maneuvering for some
' breathing room, quarterback
Cedric Cox handed the ball to
Thomas who took three steps
and performed a nifty spin
move before taking it to the
house from 73 yards out.
The defensive star of the
night for Frostproof was
Rondell Walsh, who notched
three sacks for the Bulldogs,
including one that ended the
Dragons' fourth possession.
Frostproof took -over in
Dragon territory, driving to the
S 1-yard line where Thomas leapt
over a pile of linemen for his
second touchdown and a 14-7
Bulldog lead.
Lake Placid came out scrap-
ping in the third quarter,


attempting an onsides kick to
start the half. Frostproof recov-
ered, and three plays later
Thomas had added a 33-yard
touchdown run to his stat sheet.
The Dragons recovered
another fumble to take over at
the Bulldog 23, where an 11-
yard George Rasmussen run
and a pair of Gist handoffs set
up a 4-yard Rasmussen score.
The scoreboard read 21-14
Bulldogs, and the Dragons were
now a confident team.
But in the end, it was too
much Thomas and not enough
tackling. Three more long rush-
ing touchdowns from Thomas
put the game out of reach, and
although the Roytre Hill
punched one in, late in the
fourth quarter, the Dragons just
didn't have an answer for the
phenom.
"He's in a league of his
own," admired Maddox. "The
quarterback (Cox), is just as
good, they just 'don't have
enough chances to spread the
ball around."

SCOTr DRESSEL/News-Sun
Shaw Maddox tries to keep his
team fired up during a timeout
on Friday.


MADDOX
Continued from ID
It basically came down to
'the fact the Dragons couldn't
stop Thomas, but that puts
them in the same place as the
first four teams the Bulldogs
played and, likel\. the same '
place as the ne\i five (or more)
teams on the Frostproof sched-
ule.
The Dragons gave
Frostproof a fight, which is all
Maddox Wants.
"The people in this'commu-.
nity don't understand when I
say things in the paper about
(the players) not doing what
we tell them to do and not
playing the way they're capa-
ble of playing, but anybody


that was here tonight saw the
way we're capable of playing,"
Maddox said. "They sell them
short because of the past histo-
ry of Lake Placid."
The history of Lake Placid
football is not very good. Aside
from a 9-1 'record 20 years ago
and the 1998 district champi-
onship team that went 7-3, the
Dragons have had exactly four
other winning seasons.
That kind of strtilgle can
sap the life out ot a program.,
,-Maddox's challenge is putting
life back into the Dragons,
something he is fully capable
of doing. After all, you don't
win two state' championships in
' Florida without being a pretty
good coach.
As "wrong" as it is to say
this in our politically correct,


everybody-needs-a-hug society
of today, sometime,. the be ..
motivation is a good, swift
kick in the rear. That's what
Maddox has been N erball\ try-
ing to deliver thepast few
weeks.
It's a tried-and-true coaching
technique that has been used
by just about every successful
coach in the history of the
game. There's nothing more
dangerous than a team that is
ticked off at the coach or
anybody else and has somne-
thing to prove.
The Dragons were that team
Friday night.
"Things have change a
lot and not necessarily for
the better," Maddox said when


asked about the flack he's got-
ten for his motivational tech-
niques. "I hope these (fans) are
,bright enough to understand
that this was a different gear
they played in tonight. A lot of
people got after us this week,
ard this was a football family
that played."
Maddox is the father of that
football family. And, like any
parent, he can't always be a
nice guy. Sometimes, Dad has
to put his foot down.
But in the end, the family
ends up-stronger for it, which
is all Maddox wants for his
boys.

BRASELTON. Ga. With tw.o races left
in the season and trailing one ot the most
storied names in motorsports. this usually
would be a time to panic. Not so for
Intersport Racing. The independent team,
from Ohio is relishing the chance to go
head-to-head against Porsche and Penske
Racing at Petit Le Mans powered b\ Mazda
CX-7.
The AER-powered Lola B05!4U -has been
remarkable in recent endurance races in the
American Le Mans Series. Not oni\ are Jon

they also w\on in class at the M.lb1il i 12

the factory Porsche RS Spyders from
Penske.
"We ha\e very good people building our

champion. "Brian iAAlder heads up that
pack and he's 'ery good at [what he does
We look forward to longer races because
we have done well We certainly\ don't w. ant
to jinx ourselves."
Intersport enters the ninth round of the
American Le Mans Series trailing the tw\\o-
car Penske squad by 17 points in the class.


team standings with Field and Halliday
trailing Sascha NMaassen and Lucas Luhr by
5. Reliabilit and consistency ha\e been the
hallmark of the Intersport team through the
first eight rounds. [In addition to Sebing.
other class \wins came at Houston and
Portland as the Lola outlasted the RS
Sp- ders.
As the season has progressed, Intersport
has gained cpeed but the Porsches have
improved on reliability That puts a pienu-
um on performance for both teams in the
1.01i00-nlile/10-hour classic, especially con-
siderine the other competition at Petit: a
ne\. Radical SRY-AER for \an der Steur

"Whenexer we get into the car. we're
pushing as hard as we can tb keep up \\with
the Porsches." said Halliday, the winningest
female driver in Series history% w ith si\ \ ic-
tories.
"Last wear at Petit. we ran a really good
race and out strategy Ihas been our strong
point.
"For me, there's more pressure." she
added. "We ha\e to get some real results or
we' ie going to finish third, and that's not
