Communication issues between local, state
and national entities during disaster situations
came into sharp focus after the terrorist attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001.
To address these issues, President George W.
Bush'issued a directive through the Department
of Homeland Security on Feb. 28, 2003, estab-
lishing the National Incident Management
System. The Sebring City Council officially
adopted NIMS at its Oct. 3 meeting.
The NIMS system is designed to insure that if
a federal or state agency responds to a local dis-
aster in Highlands County, all responders will use
the same terminology and command structure.
Some applicable incidents on the Federal
Emergency Management Agency Web site
include terrorist acts,. and kind of natural disaster
(floods, fires,'hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.), aircraft
accidents, hazardous material spills, nuclear acci-
dents and war-related disasters.
For Sebring city officials, the adoption of the
NIMS system will require some' significant
changes.
"It's a very extensive sN stem that requires a lot
of ongoing training," Sebring City Administrator"
Bob Hoffman sad.
Scott Noethlich, Sebring's assistant, city
administrator, said :the new system is useful,
because "if you -have another (Hurricane)
Katrina, everyone's on the same page.
"But it requires a fair amount of time, and the-
oretically a fair amount of expense."
NIMS training comes in two parts. The first
requirements are beginning courses' designed to
give background information on the ne" sstem.


These courses, can be taken in person or online.
"Then there are additional courses that are
classroom-based," Noethlich said. "Those cours-
es are scenario-type courses, where you get
involved in doing a mock disaster-type event."
During the 2007 fiscal year, governmental
agencies and tribal units around the country are
expected to implement the advanced, in-person
training courses for people who would be in
charge. of a command center during an event or
disaster.,
Noethlich. said the program is "an unfunded
mandate in a way." While the beginning courses
are offered online, the city has to hire a trainer to
come in and teach the advanced training courses.
The money for the trainer has to come out of the
city's pocket unless they can get grant money or
find a course being taught elsewhere.
Noethlich. said the city hasn't hired trainers
yet, but will probably do so in January or
February in order to allow other city and county
agencies to participate.
The Sebring police and fire departments are
fully trained in both the online and in-person
training courses. Hoffman said. Public works and
utilities are currently\ in the process of getting the
necessary training, and the city has set up a
Thanksgil ing deadline, for the two entities to
have the online training completed, according to
Noethlich.
The federal government puts pressure on cities
and municipalities to complete the training by
withholding money. If a city entity doesn't com-
plete the training, Noethlich,said it's likely that
state and federal disaster preparedness funding
will be withheld.

Sebring changes Carousel of Lights


Live activities

moving off the
Circle

By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
The Sebring Christmas
Carousel of Lights has been a
fixture on the Circle for the past
10 years. For this year, howev-
er, slight changes will have to
be made.
While the light display itself
will stay on the Circle,- live
activities such as Santa, puppet
'shows, games and concessions,
will be moved to the loi next to
The Hive nightclub.
"I'm happy to say that we've
basically outgrown the Circle,"
Jon Spiegel, coordinator of the
Carousel of Lights, said at
Tuesday's City Council meet-
ing. "The electrical system out
on the Circle has basically been
maxed out."
He said Progress Energy had
to come out about three or four
times last year to replace major
parts of the electrical system.
Spiegel told the council that
the moving of the live events
was necessary because the grass
in the Circle was still recover-
-ing from last year's events.
'The foot traffic was wearing
down the, grass due to the
amount of people coming but to
see the show and the display,"
Spiegel said. "You can still see
where the lines for Santa were'
from last year." ,
A new addition to this year's
Carousel will be a large com-
puterized light board that will
synchronize the music and the
lights. The board, which will be
82 feet long and 9 feet tall, will
be put up against the Wall Street
alleyway;
Wall Street, from the edge of
The Hive nightclub to North
Commerce Avenue, will be

closed from the end of
November until the end of
December. Spiegel made this
request because of safety con-
cerns.
.Spiegel made two requests to
the council, both of which were
granted unanimously.
His first request was that the
section of Wall Street from the
edge of The Hive nightcluhib to
North Commerce Street be
closed from the last week in
November until the last week in
December.
Traffic, such as delivery
trucks, that want to use Wall
Street, '\ ill instead use the city
parking lot 20-25 feet from
Wall Street. However, this
'shouldn't be much of an adjust-
ment, Spiegel said, because
most delivery trucks use the
city parking lot anyway
because it's easy to maneuver
through.
Spiegel's second request was
closing the parking spaces next
ito the lot on Commerce Avenue
from 6-9 p.m. during the
Carousel. Parking will be avail-
able there during the day and
after 9. This needed to be done,
Spiegel said, to improve visibil-
ity for kids who might be run-
ning around in that area.
Spiegel said the move of the-


live activities will not affect the
light display on the Circle.
"You will not see any reduc-
tion in decorations," he said.
, The sidewalks on the Circle
will be roped off during the dis-
play so that people will not
walk on the grass.
Also, a 5-foot by 6-foot
portable stage has been com-
pleted for use on the Circle. The
stage will be used for Heartland
Idol and other activities, and the
Special Events Committee will
store and maintain it. The stage
can ho,.4 up to three people.
Also at Tuesda 's meeting:
The council killed an ordi-
nance tiait wouldd have raised
the maximum height of fences
for front and side yards from
four to five feet. Fences around
swimming pools and in back
yards of residential properties
can still be a maximum of six
feet tall.
The council also approved
demolition of five Sebring
houses that had fallen into dis-
repair, been. condemned, and
been recommended for demoli-
tion by code enforcement. Four
of the houses are located in the
'Highlands Homes subdivision
off Kenilworth Boulevard. and
the fifth is located on Cle\ eland
Road. '

Knights of

Columbus to

celebrate

Columbus'

Day Monday
SEBRING The Pope John
.XXIII Council of the Knights
of Columbus is honoring its
patron. Chnristopher Columbus,
on Nlonda.
.H \hen the Knights of
Columbus Were founded in the
1880s, by Father Michael
McGivney, it was decided to
adopt a name associated with
America rather than a tradition-
al name from church history in
Europe or the Holy Land.
McGivney founded the order
of Catholic men for the original
purpose of providing security,
and chantr for the families of
%working men of New Haven,
Conn. In those times,. working
men were subjected to haz-
ardous working conditions' and
many died from industrial acci-
dents and sickness. .
Columbus was well knoit n
as the discoverer of the new
vorld. Columbus, an Italian.
sailed for the kingdom of Spain
because the Spanish ro\al fam-
ily paid for the expedition.
Columbus %was a devout
Catholic and part of his plan
was to spread Christianit. to
the new world. He brought
priests with him on his voy-
ages. .
In 1492, Columbus discov-
ered the Americas and knelt in
prayer in gratitude to God, His
name was selected for the new
order of Catholic men in honor
of the Catholic discoverer of
America.
To celebrate Columbus Day
in Highlands County, the
Knights will award Series I
Bonds to the first babies born
Monday at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center and
Highlands Regional Medical
Center. In addition, 400
Columbus coloring books will
be distributed to local schools
in Highlands County to help,
spread knowledge of
Columbus.

Kiwanis outfit CAC with


video conferencing equipment


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING When Jeff
Roth, director of the Children's
Advocacy Center, was
approached by the Kiwanis
Club of Sebring he knew exact-
ly what to say.
The club, which had already
sponsored a child's. safe inter-
view room at the center, had put
on a successful golf tournament
and other fund-raisers, and had
money to give away. The mem-
bers were looking for a good
cause and called Roth to see if
he had any ideas.
He did.
Many of the children who
arrive at the center face difficult
court experiences, he said.
Some have to' confront the indi-
viduals accused of abusing
them, or get caught between
warring parents. For many chil-
dren, he added, especially the


very young, the formal opera-
tions of a court can be intimi-
dating at best.
What the center needed, Roth
said, was a way to provide a
safe place for a. child to testify
or answer questions during a
deposition.
Would the Kiwanis be inter-
ested in helping- the center
obtain the equipment needed to
video conference? He asked,
making it possible for children
to testify from a child friendly,
safe, environment.
The club agreed to help.
,Grace Owens is on the
Kiwanis board and was presi-
dent when the club sponsored
the safe interview room.
Providing the needed equip-
ment as an add-on to the
Kiwanis sponsored room "was.
a perfect match," she said.
And that is how the $8,000
state-of-the-art video system


arrived at the center.
It can connect the individuals
at the center with any court-
room in the 10th judicial cir-
cuit, as well as the state attor-
ney and other relevant offices.
Reciprocal cameras and micro-
phones mean conversations
may be conducted in real time.
The large television screen,
during a typical exchange, can
be segmented into quarters, so
up to four different parties may
participate at one time.
If a child is needed as a wit-
ness or for a deposition, some-
one on their behalf, typically,
the guardian ad litem, may now
request a televised exchange.
The request will have to be
approved by a judge.
As the system was installed

By KEVIN J. SHUT
News-Sun
AVON PARK -The home
where an elderly man allegedly
killed his wife then himself was
shrouded by a motion-activated
camera and lights.
While responding to a 911
call at 225s N. C Hill Road
where a man told dispatchers he
had killed his. wife, Deputy

informed that operators heard
several gunshots and then quiet.
"I noticed all of the windows
were covered with board,"'
Miranda wrote in a report
Thursday, explaining that he
positioned himself west .of the

DRUG
Continued from 1A
result.
Results are not referred to as
positive until the non-negative
result has been reviewed by a
medical officer employed by
the drug testing company. This
is because non-negative results
are not always a positive sign of
illicit drug use.
For example, in one of the
two non-negative results, a stu-
dent was found to have been
under a doctor's care, taking a
prescription medication as pre-
scribed. The medicine had
showed up as an amphetamine
on the test.
With the other non-negative
.result, the reviewed test was
determined to have been accu-
rate, showing the use of mari-
juana. That student had to for-


feit a week of privileges and is
attending six weeks of special
counseling at no cost to the stu-
dent or the student's family.
Only two students have been
tested for appearing under the
influence so far this year. Both
students were observed to be
disoriented and unsteady on
their feet.
In one case the student was
found to have a medical prob-
lem linked to diabetes, a condi-
tion the student and the stu-
dent's family had not known he
had.
In the second case, an already
troubled student was found to
have ingested a homemade
LSD concoction. The mixture
made the student so disoriented,
the student had to go to the hos-
pital for a stomach pumping.
,Hollinger said the district has
added -a second, breathalyzer,
test to check for alcohol use


when students are thought to be
intoxicated..
There is a difference in terms
of consequences, between those
students in the random drug
testing pool, and those students
tested because they appear
under the influence of a drug.
Test pool students are riot
liable for criminal action or
expulsion, students found under
the influence are.
With the program only in its
third month of operation it is
too early to judge its effective-
ness, Hollinger said.
However, he added, there is
an encouraging sign by Oct.
4, 2005, 10 students had faced
expulsion hearings for drug use.
By last Wednesday, there have
been only three expulsion hear-
ings involving drug use.
Hollinger .reported that stu-
dents' and parents' reactions
have been overwhelmingly pos-


itive, especially after questions
regarding the selection of stu-
dents and privacy issues were
answered. For example, parents
wanted to know why all chil-
dren aren't tested.
The selection is random,
done electronically. Schools are
constrained from blanket test-
ing whole populations because
there has to be a reasonable
rationale for a test. Playing on
school teams, or participating in
student government or clubs is
considered a privilege, not part
of the ordinary school curricu-
lum. That means schools, with
parental approval, may set con-
ditions on that participation -
the. drug test being such a con-
dition. The district, Hollinger
said, is pushing the envelope by
including students who park
their cars on campus. However,
because parking is a privilege,
not a right, those students may


be included.
Regarding privacy issues
Hollinger said, in essence, par-
ents have a need to know if their
child is in danger.
As for students, Hollihger
said those to whom he" has spo-
ken have been in favor of the
program, or unconcerned about
it.
Another student had looked
forward to the tests, Hollinger
added, because the student
thought they were blood tests


and liked needles.
The student who moved
Hollinger the most, however,
was not from Highlands
County. He spoke of a young
high school student who had
appeared before the White
House's special conference.
That student said she liked the
drug tests because they gave her'
a reason to say no when she was
with her friends at parties and
was asked to join in drug use.


Wauchula man killed in Avon Park accident


News-Sun
AVON PARK A 78-year-
old Wauchula man died Friday,
night in an accident at the inter-
section of Sunpure Road and
U.S. 27, according to a Florida
Highway Patrol report.
George M. Emmerton was
westbound on Sunpure Road
and was. trying to cross the
highway and enter the south-
bound lanes, Cpl. Albert H.


Middleton wrote in his report.
Emmerton's Jeep was stuck
by a northbound Dodge driven
by Nasima Shamim, of Temple
Terrace.
Shamim and her three pas-
sengers suffered minor injuries.
Seat belts were in use by the
victim, Shamim and her front
passenger, but not\by her two
back seat passengers,
Middleton's report noted.


DEPUTY
Continued from 1A
tion of property and physical
violence are just some of the
signs of domestic violence dis-
cussed at a Peace River Center
seminar on Friday.
Highlands Sheriff Susan
Benton and State Rep. Denise
Grimsley spoke to a group of
60-70 health care professionals,
law enforcement officers and
other victim advocates from the
area.
But, the highlight of the sem-
inar was Rhissa Briones' first-
ever performance of "The
Yellow Dress," a one-woman
play that brings the gradual
transition of blissful courting to
violent relationship to center
stage.
During the 30-minute drama,
Briones played the role, of
"Anna" a high school senior
who falls in love with an all-
around good guy who eventual-
ly becomes her killer.
"It just came out of the blue
and I didn't know what to do,"
Briones' character tells the
audience, explaining the
"sweet" boyfriend began to
swear at her, demean her.
Beatings followed the verbal
and emouonal abuse. "I just
- wanted it to stop. but things
kept getting worse."
After passing out while being
choked, "Anna" broke up with
the boyfriend, who later apolo-
gizes, trying to make up.
The character declines get-
ting' back together, but joins her
ex-boyfriend in a car ride to
hear him out.
"I fell for it, I got in the car
with him," she said, explaining
that he would beat her to death
and leave her body in a ditch. "I


guess he knows now I stopped
loving him."
According to domestic vio-
lence, data, w6men attempting
to leave a batterer face a 75-per-
cent increased risk of serious
bodily harm or death.
"The health costs are stagger-
ing," Joy Kruppa, Peace River
Center director of victim servic-
es said during a presentation of
state and national statistics.
In addition to $4.1 billion in
direct health, costs, domestic
violence is said to cost employ-
ers from $3-13 billion annually
from lost productivity, sick
days, business disruptions and
the need to. recruit and replace
employees who can't hold a job
because of an abuser's interfer-
ence.
According to a 2005 Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, the state had
120,000 domestic violence
cases.
"It's decreasing or leveling
out," Kruppa said of the state
numbers. "But in the tri-county
area Polk, Highlands and
Hardee it increased 5.6 per-
cent."
That increase could be attrib-
uted to anything from increased
awareness (which results in
fewer unreported cases) to pop-
ulation growth.
Domestic violence tran-
scends race, gender, culture and
socioeconomic status.
Offenders and victims include
the unemployed as well as
white collar professionals.
The 41 "certified" centers in
Florida provided shelter and
outreach services .to more than
64,000 victims during the fiscal
year that ended June, Kruppa
said.
.Numerous government and
non-government services are


available, from victim compen-
sation funds to vocational reha-
bilitation to employ uneducated
women or those long-absent
from the workforce.
But, for somebody not famil-
iar with the system, especially
when language is a barrier, the
task of seeking help can be
daunting. ,
"The .staff at Safe House
always looks forward to a visit
from Linda Astacio," said Debi
Gulbrand, domestic outreach
coordinator for Peace River.
Center, during a special award
ceremony honoring, the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office employee. "Her ability
to interpret coupled with her
gentle spirit makes her invalu-

Astacio, Benton's full-time
victim advocate, .helps victims
of violent crimes navigate the
complex social services web.
From July to September, 108
victims passed through her
office. Of those, 49 were pri-
mary (the man or woman bat-
tered) or secondary victims
(often children who witness the
violence) of domestic abuse.,
"Education is so important
for the community if they can
just know where to point peo-
ple," Astacio said during an
interview Thursday.. -.
Victims referred b [ la%%
enforcement or those who come
on their own accord are briefed
on what is available to them
which includes counseling, gas
and food vouchers and safety
plans in case they'return totheir
abuser or the abuser finds them.
SAccording to the arrest report
of Thompson,. the Hardee
County deputy, he allegedly
called his ex-wife's cell phone
and warned, "You have two
minutes to get David (Lightsey)


out of my home and away from
my kids."
Moments after she told him
to leave her alone' and to not
call again, he allegedly was
pounding on the front door.
"(She) played approximately
15 messages left from Eric,"
Altier said in her report.
Deputies monitored a call
from the alleged victim to
Thompson, during which he
acknowledged his presence at
her home and banging on, the
door but denied knowledge of
Lightsey.
"-David who?" he allegedly
asked her. "Who are you talking
about?"

Raising pigs the


natural way
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
'.. 5,'
A\VON PARK Jim Wood is a real estate and mortgage bro-
ker. comfortable in a coat and tie. As it happens he is also a pie
farmer. mai, be the only pig farmer in Highlands Counti and he is
just as comfortable wearnng v.orn meanss and y.ork gloes: ma\ be
ei en more comfortable.
Wood grew. up on the Dressel Dajr\. and had worked in agri-
culture in a number of lob'. before going into sales and building
a successful career.
But he missed farming.
\\ hen he bought a tract of hea\ ijl\ wooded. \ irgin land six
\ears ago out off of State Road 64 he wasn't sure % hat he
\\anted to do \ ith it except he knew\ it would be something to do
-. ith livestock
He didn't ha\e enough room for cattle or horses, and in an\
case theN\ would be more work than he wanted to handle on a
small scale.
What got him thinking about pigs \was the difficult\ he and his
v.ife. Sebnrin High School A.ssistant Principal Debbie \Wood. had
had gerting piglets for their children \hen the children wanted to
raise them to shoe.
So that's ho"\ the operation started out. breeding piglets for
children to raise and sho'i at the fair.
He did that for fite \ears.
As of this Seal. howe\er. his operation gre" to a nes dimen-
sion. He has 20 brood sod s and several boars and is working to
build up and perfect his breeding stock.
But that means more and more pis ha',e to be culled fron-, the
herds and that means more and more pigs are going to the butch-
er. That is one reason he joined the Madison Pork Farms coopera-
tj, e.
He raises his animals in accordance ,ith an all natural pro-
lgram under the auspices of the Uni\ersit\ of Florida. It is a mi\-
ture of high tech and old fashioned. Gone are the crates and the
medications. especially including antibiotics.
Left to li\e out in the air. free to snuffle and graze. his pigs are
remarkable' health\. Which. it turns out is saying a great deal.
Pigs are fragile and vulnerablee to diseases and germs. Before \is-
'tors enter Wood's pens the\ are asked to take off their shoes and
don rubber boots.
That's not to protect the visitor, but to protect the pig from
an\ thing a visitor's s-,hoes might be carrying.
"It's been a true adventure.' Wood said. "\We are a farrow\ to
tinish operation selling directly to the customer. We produce meat
year round. Although because of the heat "e try not to deliver in
Jul, and August. We sell a finished product $150 for a quarter
pig; $250 for half a pig. and $500 tor a \"hole pig."

FARM
Continued from 1l1A
second life is in real estate, is a
member of an all natural pork
cooperative. He also is part of
a University of Florida pro-
gram working to create all nat-
ural, sustainable, family farms.
The goal is to use nature, not
fight it, and even more impor-
tantly, to keep small farms
from dying out.
Certainly Wood's pigs have
an idyllic life. It's only fair.
These pigs are headed for the
dinning room table, although
they won't be aware of sitting
on it when they get there.
They spend their days eat-
ing, sleeping and wallowing in
mud. Pigs wallow, by the way,
because, like dogs, they can
only cool their bodies by panti-
ng. Shade and mud are necessi-
ties.
Wood is proud of the quality
of his meat. He said that all
natural pork is marbled and
retains more water, making it
juicer and more tender than
commodity pork.
It made me think 9f a scene
from a movie where a man is
ordering lobster in a restaurant:
"Don't boil this lobster in
water," he says. "Put it in a pot
and pour a nice white wine
over it. Slowly, slowly turn up
the heat. By the time it's at a
boil he'll be pickled and not
feel a thing. He'll be relaxed
and die tender enough to melt

in my mouth."
Or words to that effect. But
what I thought was, no wonder
these pigs produce a tender
pork they live a stress free
life.
I learned some things I never
knew.
For example, they graze. I
mean just like cows and horses
do. In fact, a small herd of pigs
can pick an area clean. For
example, they love palmetto
palms. First they eat the leaves,
then they eat the stalks, then
they dig up the roots and eat
them. Wood is seeding new
pastures for them.
I learned that pigs are not
Soft and cuddly, or at least not
the ones in Florida. As a city
kid, the only two pigs I've ever
known were fictional. I speak
of course of Wilber from E.B.
White's book "Charlotte's
\\eb." and Babe. from the
mo\ ie "Babe." I thought of
pig ajs being cure and comfort-
mna. like a stuffed animal. but
,mart and a little li\cher.
\Vas I disappointed.
In one pen a laige boar came
o\er to ha'\e a look. I had
stepped o\er the electrified
i\ re. so I could get closer to
him. He \,as an. thing but cute.
covered in a thick coat of mud.
and drooling. \\ hen I reached
out to pet him I \%as shocked to
find his hair stiff as a bristle
and Aer\ coarse. It almost hurt
to stroke it
And the fellow\ v.as solid.


He made think of a young_
actress 'vho in an interview
was asked what it was like to
tickle Arnold Schwarzennegger
in a movie scene. She said it
was like tickling a rock. ,
That's exactly what the pig
felt like a scrub brushy
rock.
And they are big. Not as big
as horses thankfully, but way
bigger than any dog.
And they weigh a ton. Well
not quite, but they weigh hun-
dreds of pounds and are ani-
mals to be treated with respect.
At one point the boar whose
ears I had been scratching
began digging in the dirt.
Wood immediately had me
back away and step out of the
pen. Digging is a sigh of men-
tal distress, and he worried
what the boar might do.
They rarely become aggres-
si\e. but an unhappy animal
%weighing hundreds of pounds
is not to be taken lighil..
Wood kno\'. his. pigs. Each
ha, a different personality and
each herd has a pecking order
"The\ are mischie\oit,." he
said. "'3ou ha\e to mrnitain
good fencing. The\ \\ill dig
out list like a do, \\\\."
Calling a group of pigs a
herd. bN the \aa. describes
them %ell. They mo\e in
groups. usually\ follo"i ing a
leader.
In one pen 12-%Neek-old
piglets caromed at a gallop,
thundering from one end of the


corral to the other as we moved
among them. When we
stopped, so did they, gathering
into such a tight bunch at a
safe distance from us I won-
dered if any in the middle of
the pack ever died of suffoca-
tion.
In fact, most newborn pig
deaths are due to suffocation,
only from the mother when she
accidentally rolls over on them
while sleeping or while they
are eating.
I spent the better part of a
morning .with Wood, following
him around. In truth there was
little to do beyond filling a
large garbage can with a
University of Florida formulat-
ed-teed and distributing itf
among the different pens.
Wood was observant as we
moved around, checking on the


medical breakthroughs

in the fight against Breast Cancer.

pigs in general, examining the
fencing, making note of what
needed maintenance. He said it
took months of hard work to
get the operation up and run-
ning. In the early days it was
like holding down two full-
time jobs.
But the farm has been
thoughtfully and carefully laid
out. Every element is in'bal-
ance with another. While there
is always something to do, in
many ways-the farm takes care
of itself. Wood can maintain it
comfortably by spending an
hour each morning and evening'
and all of Saturday there. And
he has part-time help.
We spent the morning in
constant motion, but moved at
a leisurely pace. The place
encouraged it. The pigs, even'
the frantic babies as the heat


grew, slowed to a halt, digging
into shade cooled sand, or hid-
ing under bushes.
The excited snorts that
greeted breakfast faded into
quiet and the ruffled leaves
gently rattled over head.
"It's almost like (the farm)
gives your life a purpose,"
Wood said in that sound filled
silence. "It's an important part
of my life, and my family's
life. My children love their
memories. I walk the perime-
ter, (taking t all in and) thank-
ing 'God."

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Around the nation for bad parenting


Being a parent is a tough job.
Anyone who has had to go nine
rounds with a stubborn toddler
or listen to the outraged protests
of a teenager in full-blown ado-
lescence understands this.
I sometimes smile when I
hear those who are childless
judge those of us who are in the
thick of it. The childless some-
times have a superior attitude
that lasts until their first darling
shatters their misconceptions,
along with their Ming vase.
Anyone who is a parent also
knows no one gets it exactly
right.
Show me a parent, and I will
show you someone who has at
least once let their child eat ice
cream for dinner, screamed
when they shouldn't have, or
bought off a temper tantrum
with chewing gum. But some
mistakes are bigger than others.
I am thinking about Lemuel
and Julia Redd, of Monticello,
Utah. The Redds have a 21-
year-old daughter, Julianna.
Back in August, Julianna was
about to be married to a man
named Perry Meyers., For rea-


sons I could not fer-
ret out, the parents
didn't want their
little girl to get
married.


LAURA'
Laura


The- parents tried
to talk their daugh-.
ter out of going through with
the ceremony, but she wouldn't
budge. The day before the wed-
ding, they offered to take her on
a shopping trip. They then pro-
ceeded to take her to Grand
Junction, Colo,, about 240
miles from Provo. During the
drive, they continued to try to
persuade her to call off the wed-
ding.
Once their daughter agreed
not to call her groom to be, the
parents returned her to Provo -
after the wedding ceremony
was supposed to have, taken
place.
Meanwhile, Perry Meyer
reported his bride-to-be missing
when she failed to show up for
a pre-nuptuil dinner. Now the
Rudds are charged with kidnap-
ping. Julianna and Perry got
married three days later.
Another case of highly ques-


S LoOK tionable parenting
takes us to Maine.
Nicholas and Lola
Ware Kampf got hit with
news from
Katelyn, their
unmarried 19-
year-old daughter: She was
pregnant.
What did the Kampfs do
when they were told this? What
court documents say they did is
kidnap their daughter, planning
to take her to New York for an
emergency abortion.
Katelyn managed to get loose
during a restroom stop in
Salem: New Hampshire State
Police caught the parents, and
they are facing kidnapping
charges.
In both cases, 'the parents
were wrong to take matters (and
their children) into their own'
hands. They broke the law and
overstepped their parental
authority big time.
But on some level I feel a
touch of sympathy for them.
Perhaps I wouldn't have 10
years ago. It's just that now I
look at my sons and while they


will always be my "children," I
see that they are less childlike
each and every day.
James, my 17-year-old, can
now pick me up actually lift
me off my feet. He, like his
brother, has been taller than I
for years. He is getting ready to
launch his first business and
isn't even out of high school.
Then there is my 19-year-old.
John has already taken steps out
of the nest. He is working on
business plans of his own as he
attends school in Tennessee.
His online gaming is taking a
,professional air, and every time
I'see him I see more of the man
and less of the baby I held.
I'm sorry, this was supposed
to be a funny column about bad
parents. Told from the point of
view of another parent just try-
ing to 'do the best she can, and
thus qualified to judge others.
I guess my heart got in the'
way.

Inside the world,
of real estate


Editor:
S Got a For Sale sign out in the
front yard? Is it collecting road
dust" Are \ou putting stock
market purchases on \our to do
list? Consider this: Real Estate
is the proven .appreciating
value for a. return on your
investment dollar, sometimes
for a fast turnaround or like
now, sometimes waiting.
We watched the breathless
run up in our local prices 2004
Sand 2005, on the heels of a 10-
year' gallop in appreciation for
S" all Florida's real estate. We wit-
nessed the events that put the
brakes on: bad weather, expen-
site gasoline and poorly leter-
aged speculation bu \ing. Who
hadn't anted to buy and sell
for a quick huge' return?
Interest had fallen so 'low that
the recent inching up was
painful too. Rates are teetering.
down\\ ard at the moment, how-
ever.
Remember the optimism
over Baby Boomers reaching
S -retirement deciding to settle
And young folks bought land
for their future,, dreaming of
sweet paradise or cashing in.,
Both these notions are still cor-
rect. Real estate is both the tor-
toise and the hare, The fact of
growing appreciation still holds
true.
Currently, yes, buyers fre-
quently need to sell to buy.
Prices may be set to cover both
mortgages, and equity loans:
Yes, home owner's insurance is
a bear. Appreciation, storms
and the threat of storms are tak-
ing their toll. Ad valorem taxes
for property without
Homestead exemption are way
up. Some say the Save Our
S Homes legislation that prevents
Homesteaded property, taxes
from going up more than the
cost of living index annually,
capped at three percent is forc-
: ing people to either' stay put or
shoulder the inequity of the
updated taxable appreciation
when buying.
If you own rental property
your taxes and insurance bur-
dens are stiff. The rental market
appears quite strong still. The
inventory for resale and new
homes is virtually saturated for
- the time being. The rezoning
flurry over proposed legislation
that failed and the now impend-
ing impact fees (see chart) cre-
ated a rush ,to build. Thus a
buyer's market!
Suppose you need to sell an
over extended house. You are
advised to sell low, or rent to
.break even and then, rent for
yourself within your budget, or'
get yet another job to support
your home. Foreclosure is not
considered an option. Sellers
must rely on price and presen-
tation to sell.
Now we hear that the median
price of a home has fallen
nationally for the first time in
11 years. It's done this six times
over the last 30 years. Sellers
,, take heart, buyers are arriving
daily. Agree to a long-term list-
ing agreement for best results.
Buyers rejoice! Shop the

Davis's brother
is a proud one
Editor:
I love my brother, but more
importantly, I respect him as a
leader, a public servant and a
family man. ia
When we 'were in school, I
watchedd as Jimn consistently
made top grades and was elect-
ed to numerous leadership
positions, including the honor
council at Washington and Lee
University.
SLater; he served Florida hon-
orably'as house.majority leader
in Tallahassee. When the citi-
zens of Florida sent Jim to
Washington to represent 'them'
in Congress, his fellow demo-
cratic representatives ,voted
him president,of the freshman
class because he was commit-
ted to bringing both parties
together for the good of 'the
country;
Not only is my brother a tire-
less public servant, Jim is a;
devoted husband, father, son
and brother. Peggy and Jim are
fixtures at their sons' athletic
and school activities.
On Nov., 7, I will proudly
cast my vote for the leader who
will best serve Florida.

Why not attack

with no defense
Editor:
The Republican spin.
machine, although badly worn
through constant use since this
administration took office in
2000, has been put into over-
drive once again. Foley.wants
to hide his actions behind a
claim of alcoholism. Since
these egregious activities have


46


apparently' taken place since
2003, why should we not also-
'conclude .that the rest of his
activities while in office were
likewise affected?
As is standard procedure in
this administration, when there
is no defense... attack!
Although it has already been
shown that several high-rank-
ing, prominentt republicans
were aware of Foley's actions,
their primary response was to
hit the "talk radio circuit and
blame the Democrats. Rather
than accepting any responsibil-
ity for their own lack of func-
tionality in addressing Foley's
criminal activities, their only
concern was and is keep-
ing Republicans in control of
the government.
It is only a matter of time
before the spin-masters try to
blame' Clinton for Foley's
actions. Remember, however,
that Monica was of legal age, a
willing participant and of
the opposite sex.

Europe ready
for expansion
Editor:,
Over the last few years we
have watched closely as the
European Union has emerged
as a growing world power.
Europe's economy has grown
steadily and can boast of a
Gross Domestic Product larger
than. the United States'. The
European Union now encom-
passes more than 460 million
people, stretching from the
Mediterranean to the Arctic.
Next year it will expand its bor-
ders east all the way to the
Black Sea.
The foundations of this pow-

erful alliance were laid in
the aftermath of World War
II; when much of Europe lay
in ruins. In order to prevent
another bloody war, steps
were taken to unite the
nations of Europe politically
and economically. In 1951
six countries (Germany,
France, Italy, Belgium,
Luxemburg, and the
Netherlands) signed the
Treaty of Paris which cre-.
ated the European Coal and
Steel Community.
In March 1957 these same
six nations signed. the
Treaties of Rome,, which
created the Etiopean
Atomic Energy Community
and the European Economic
Community. These three
multinational organizations
were collectively referred to
as the European
Community. The six original
members were then joined
by the United Kingdom,
Ireland, and Denmark in
1973, Greece in 1981, and
Spain and Portugal in 1986.
In June 1993, a milestone
treaty was signed in the city
of Maastricht, Netherlands
that made the Treaty of
Rome obsolete. The
Maastricht treaty established
the basis for a common cur-
rency, a common judiciary, a
common foreign policy, and
a common military. So by
the time Austria, Finland
and Sweden joined in 1995,
the European Community
had transformed itself into
the European Union.
In 2004, two years after
the launch of euro banknotes
and coins, the European
Union welcomed 10 new-
member states, bringing the
total'number of members to


25. Bulgaria and Romania
'have signed accession
treaties and are set to join
the European Union next
year. Meanwhile, Turkey,
Croatia, Macedonia, and
several of the Balkan states
have also petitioned for
membership.
While the borders of
Europe expand, the battle
over the new constitutional
treaty continues. The current
draft of the European Union
Constitution is an enormous
document (474 pages in the
English version) that is sup-
posed to streamline the gov-.
emrnment. All 25 nations were
supposed to ratify the docu-
ment before next. month's
deadline. However both the'
French and the Dutch have
voted to reject the constitu-
tion.
The defeat of the constitu-
tion, particularly in France,
catapulted the European
Union into crisis mode. The
French rejection has left
many wondering what will
happen next. Although
Europe's politicians have
been hesitant to admit it
publicly, it is clear that the
European constitutional
treaty 'is dead in the water.
So what happens next? The
consensus seems to be that
French and Dutch voters
have done little more than,
simply delay the inevitable.
Efforts are already being
made to resuscitate the con-
stitution several ,of
Europe's leaders have sug-
gested implementing the,
changes by drafting a treaty
that could be approved by
national parliaments, effec-,
tively sidestepping around
unpredictable national refer-
endums.
Despite some, setbacks,
the European Union contin-
ues to grow both politically
and economically. The value


of the euro has risen steadily
since entering circulation in
2002. Today the euro is chal-
lenging the dollar's position
as the world's reserve cur-
rency, a privileged status
that has been held by the
dollar ever since the Bretton
Woods agreement over 60
years ago. It has been sug-
gested by some that the
European Union may be the
revived Roman Empire.'
Thus it is interesting to note,
that the introduction of the
Euro is the first time since
the days of Caesar and the
Roman Empire that Europe
has had a common currency,
others. have tried, most
notably Napoleon
Bonaparte, but none were
successful.
At present, approximately
two-thirds of world trade is
conducted in dollars and twQ
thirds of central banks' cur-
rency reserves, are held in
the American currency -
which remains the sole cut-
rency used by international
institutions such as the
International Monetary,
Fund. This. confers 'on the
United States a major eco-
nomic advantage: the ability
to run, a trade, deficit year
after year. The United States
always spends more than it
earns, whereas the rest of the
world always earns more
than it spends. A rapid move
away from the dollar
towards the euro could have,
,a 'disastrous effect on the
U.S. economy.

The strength of the dollar
is closely) related to the fact
that oil, the most important.
commodity traded in the
world, is priced in U.S. tiir-
rency. The majority of coun-
tries that are oil importers.
have to buy their oil in, dol-
lars, which :forces them to
keep most of their foreign


currency in dollars.
However that could change.
In recent years the move-
ment toward buying and
selling oil in euros has been
gaining momentum. Both
the Iranian and Russian par-
liaments have recently dis-
cussed adopting the euro for
oil sales. Russia has already
entered into negotiations
with Germany over the
establishment of an
exchange to sell oil futures
in euros. Furthermore, statis-
tics recently published by
the oil cartel Organization of
the Petroleum Exporting
Countries show that Russia
has surpassed Saudi Arabia
as the world's biggest pro-
ducer of oil. Meanwhile,
Iran has proposed the estab-
lishment of an international
commodity exchange for the
express purpose of trading
oil,, petrochemicals and gas
in various non-dollar curren-
cies, including euros.

It would seem that the
European Union is position-
ing itself to 'surpass the
United States as the domi-
nant world power. There are
still many obstacles the
European Union must face
on the road to solidarity, but
in the' .eyes of some they
have already accomplished
the imipo'ible The once'
impenetrable wall between
east and west, communist'
and free, is now gone, and in
its place is 4. growing eco-
nomic and political force.
To be able to compete
with the abundance of
wealth, power and resources
of more than .460 million'
people, we might have, to.'
combine our resources with
Mexico, Canada, Central
and South America just to
survive.

Pearce takes over at Heartland Motors


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING For 19 years
Scott Pearce has been selling
cars for someone else and now
he's purchased his own auto
sales business.
"Heartlahd Motors is the first
business I've ever owned. I
worked first at Blackman Ford
'(which became Sebring Ford)
and later Alan Jay. I'm very
excited about this opportunity. I
plan to have a million to a mil-
lion and a half dollars in inven-
tory. I'll also do consignmentt
and purchase vehicles. We'll
take all kinds of trade-ins:
boats and motorcycles. As long
as it's nothing to feed," Pearce
said.
He has spent his whole life in
this community, attending Fred
Wild Elementary School,
Sebring High School and South
.Florida Community College. "I
.always like to make sure every-
one is taken care of. When a car
is sold, they know my 'thanks'
means .a great deal to me,"


Pearce said.
Ginny Haymaker was the
previous owner of Heartland
Motors for 19 years,-and had
sold cars for 33 years. "Scott is
not only caring, knowledge-
able, and experienced about
automobiles, but also actively
involved in the community. I
trust and believe in him and
have great expectations for
Heartland Motors," Haymaker
said.
At Pearce's Heartland
Motor there will be all makes
and models represented. Some*
will be as low as $2,000 up to
current models. All will be pre-
owned vehicles with a 120
point, inspection covering! all
s\ stems and a certification.
Each will 'come with a six-
month, 6,000 mile warranty or
the factory warranty.
"We've got great sales peo-
ple: Bob Evans (formerly ,'.ith
Alan Jay) has 40 \.eus e.peri-
ence. David Scott was with
Alan Jay for five years. Danny
DeBose has 20 years experi-

Reggie LaDue has 22 years.
Rae Rothenberger is our
finance manager. She's been in
the car business for 27 years;
Together our team will have
over 100 years of experience,"
Pearce said.
Pearce believes he, has the
hometown advantage. With his'
reputation, and the quality and
price of his cars, he feels he'will
stand out. "I believe in honesty
and integrity. I lost my dad 11
years agb, and I treat v.onien
the .i. a. I'd want my mom treat-
ed. After all, they make 75. per-
cent of the business decisions,"
Pearce said.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

The delete key

of forgiveness
I meant to respond to an
e-mail that had come in.
But, the week had been
hectic.
When I xt as ready to
respond, the item was gone.
I scrolled the list again
knowing I had left it there.
Then I questioned"my hus-
band Ken.
"Oh, sorry," he said. "I
must have deleted it when I
was clearing the inbox."
My rising annoyance dis-
sipated when he pulled up
the delete file and the e-
mail appeared ready for
me to answer it. Saved by .
the click of a button
I ,wonder if that's how we%
sometimes for2i e. \\e say
we've deleted that item
from our memorN and are
not holding p grudge. Then
something happens and.
like the click of a button,
the offense is pulled up
from the delete file.
I guess that's wh\ when
Peter asked how many ,
times we should forgive
someone up to seen
times Jesus responded.
"I tell you. not seen times.
but setenty -se'en times,"
as seen in Matthe\w 18: 22.
NIV.
When we forgive. \e are
releasing the offender from
being accountable to us and
gi\ ing him and the situation
to God. \Ve free ourselves
and don't allow a root of
bitterness to spring up.
It's not like our memo-
ries go blank or %\e stop
being prudent and discern-
ing regarding trust. but wte
don't let that individual
hat e pow er ov er us. We
learn to be civil and courte-
- ous and see the person
through the eues of God's
love.
However. if we dredge
up the old delete file ,ith
accompany ing emotions,.
it's time to employ God's
arithmetic and multiple. our
forgiveness oer and o\er
again.
But. God's forgiveness is
different. When he foreiies.
he forgets. Does that mean
\\e don't pa\ the conse-
quences for our actions? We
all knot that there's fallout
and implications that natu-
rall\ follow.
However. God's forgie-
ness gives us a net lease
on life. As belle\ers. God
sees us through the right-
eousness of his Son. And
he is \ ith us through all of
the changes causing good to
come out of bad.
If we come back to him.
\ with dredged up sin, he
Slantts to knot\. "what sin?"
since he no longer sees us
cloaked in that garment. I;
once remember Come ten
Boom saN ing that when
God buries our sins in the
ocean depths. he puts up:a
sign that sals. "No fishing."
"For as high as the heav-:
ens are about e the earth, so
great is his love for those
\ ho fear him; as far as the
east is from the west. so far
has he removed our trans-
gressions from us." saws
Psalm 103: 12-13. NIV.
God deletes the whole
delete file. Selah.

Havery


attends


George


Washington


Teacher


Institute
By JAN MEROP

SEBRING Dawn Havery's excite-
ment is off the chans.
Chosen as one of 18 teachers from
Connecticut. New York, New" Jersey,
NMississippi and Florida, Havery, a Fred
Wild Elementary School teacher, spent
one veek at George Washington's estate
in MN. Vernon. Va.. attending The
George Washinrgton Teacher Institute.
"We were treated like George
Washington's gentry." Havern said. %with
a breathlessness that revealed the effect
this encounter has had on her. "It was the
most honoring experience I have ever
had as a teacher. It is the highlight of my
teaching career and nothing else will
e'er be as wonderful as this has been."
They ate on the finest
china and sipped from
delicate crystal One
evening during dinner.
someone played 18th
century instruments and
spoke to them about
music. Even an outdoor
picnic on Nit. Vernon's
%wharf overlooking the Potomac Ri'er
was done in style.
"It was like a four-star resort. The
teachers shared a fully stocked kitchen
w ith snacks and breakfast foods and the
rest of the meals were catered in or pro-
vided at the Nit. Vernon restaurant," she
said. : ,..
On their last day at MNit. Vernon. the
teachers were taken to the tomb for a
%wreath laying ceremony and learned
about Washington's final hours.
"I would love to see someone else
from Highlands County go to MNit.
Vernon next year." Ha\ery said.

The selection process
Havery. "\ho had been teaching first
grade at the time, noticed a brochure on
the staff bulletin board inviting teachers
to experience The George Washington
Teacher Institute at NMt. Vernon
"They were offering a study on the
life and character of George Washington
and 18th century history, for seo en da\ s.
Teachers were to be put up in private
housing that accommodated 40." she
said.
She didn't do anything about it right
away, but it kept calling her.
"I had been on a family vacation to
the Washington. D.C. area and my
favorite place was Nit. Vernon." she said.
Being an a\ id historical fiction reader
and history buff she could resist no
longer and pulled the brochure down and

investigated. She even e-mailed them to
discover ho'w fierce the competition
would be. She %%as encouraged to apply
for this all-expense paid %week a
dream to be sure.
One of the requirements %\as that she
be teaching at least third grade. She
approached the principal to see if she
could be assigned to a higher grade in
order to qualify. She w\as given a fifth-
grade class and proceeded to get her
resume together. obtain a reference from
her principal and present the reasons she
believed %would make her a desirable
choice.
She opened her heart wide in her let-
ter explaining that she was to be teach-
ing a higher grade and longed for the
experience so that her students could
benefit from it as well. She expressed
her loe for MNit. Vernon and shared how
she had previously been in the
Washington. D.C. and Virginia areas on
a family actiono, a missions trip to
feed the homeless and also to help guide
a tour of young musicians.
When she was chosen, she could hard-
l1 believe it.

A step back in time
Walking the grounds of George
Washington's home and being taken
bey ond the roped off aleas was a treat in
itself. One of her favorite moments was
spent sitting in the portico at the back of
the mansion overlooking the Potomac
RiJer on Sunday morning having a
quiet time of devotions w ith God and
thanking him for this incredible experi-
ence.
Book authors. Harnard-trained profes-
sors and others came and taught for an
hour and 15 minutes. They'd take a
break and the next speaker %would arrive.
Some of her favorite experiences includ-
ed the live history lessons presented- b
first-person characters.
"Martha Washington came and talked
with us. Since George Washington w\as
once a surveyor, an 18th centurN survey -

or ga'e a vern interesting lecture about
that.trade." HaverN said.
Deborah Simpson. a lady who pre-
tended to be a man and joined the
Continental Army during the
Revolutionary War. regaled them \ith
her story.
"Her charade \was up \hen she was
wounded," Hater4 said. "Then they
kicked her out."
The teachers were taken by chartered
bus for tours of the monuments in
Washington D.C. and Colonial
Williamsburg.
"While there. George Washington
came down the street on his horse."
Hav er said.
All heads turned as a \\oman innkeep-
er ran to Washington and cried out for
ne-ws of her sons w\ho were fighting. The
enactment \was so realistic: Havery and
the other teachers felt as if they'd
stepped back in time.
"Washington told the innkeeper to
hang in there and. then. "as on his 'ay.,"


she said.
Other character actors presented
thoughts on slavery. community life dur-
ing those times as \well as political repre-
sentati'es from the House of Burgessess.
Though the teachers didn't hate tests.
Ha\ery said they frantically took notes.
But, they are required to do a lesson plan
that is due by Sunday. Oct. 15. They also
had group projects: such as inter\lieting
some of the first-person characters.
One of the most compelling features
on the grounds of Mt. Vernon is a brand
new museum that till open in the fall. It
has five theaters. This addition will
make a tour of Mt. Vernon a full day
event rather than half a da\
"The museum curators gate us a pri-
vate tour. When you enter Valley Forge,
snow falls on \ou. When cannons roar.
your seat rattles. It r\ill even have a set
of George Washington's dentures on dis-
play like the Hope Diamond." she said
with a laugh.

Mild mannered and even, tempered
Charles took his laN off in stride. But,
when he told his new bride, she cried.
Her faith k% as fragile. How would they
make it? But, God proved his faithful-
ness b, supplying employment in only
three weeks,. bolstering her faith." '
Charles had a 13-year run with that
job: while e keeping his eyes open to other
possibilities. Thankfull\ when he was
laid off. he had .a job lined up %vith no
time lost.
Lillian thanked God for the smooth
ride and life went on.
Eight years later, Charles faced still
another lay off. In only three %weeks, he
%was happily employed: but it lasted only
two years before another layoff robbed


him of work.
These looked at each
other and shook their
heads. This was
becoming their per-
sonal. chronic trial.
This time. Lillian
picked up her faith,
%waving it like a banner
and declaring ,God
would supply their ,......... .
needs as he had done in the past.
"You've never had to wait more than
three {weeks for a new job," shesaid
encouragingly to Charles '
However, God had other plans to test
Lillian's faith.
Three weeks went by, no job. Three
months went by, still no job. A tremor of
fear crept in; shaking the branch of faith
she sat upon.
By now .they had two children, no
health insurance and Charles' continued
frustration searching for computer work.
Their savings dw% indled. Fretting and
fussing came easily: e'en giving into
feelings and words that hurt. The
upcoming holidays didn't help.
They leaned on prayer to. dissolve
*defeat and nurture hope.
Lillian loved donating to the needy
through the Thanksgiving baskets. at
church. However, this year they were
among the-recipients.

from friends w ho had-

before., A friend tem-
porarily supplied part
time office work for
>, ,,, .. Charles for several
months. Tears flowed. Thanksgiving
bubbled up.
Lillian noticed their daughter's blos-
soming faith as God worked through
.other people. Later, as a young teen. she
became that essel on short-term mis-
sion trips.
After nine long, months. Lillian
rejoiced when Charles found work with
a start-up company. Unfortunately. after
only 14 months, he was unemployed
again. The- day his work ended, her
teacher's aide position came.to a close
for the summer.
Here they go again, she thought. Only
this time they were both unemployed
and uninsured.
Within five weeks, however, Charles
found work with a computer company
that was right up his alley of computer
skills.
Though layoffs aren't fun, Charles
and Lillian testify to God's faithful pro-

Groovus performing concert at Highlands Hammock


It's time for the annual Music
in the Park concert series to
begin again at Highlands
Hammock State Park. The first
of our six concerts to be in the
2006/2007 concert series will
be from 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct.
21. and features the popular
local group Groovus.
This band plays jazz, rock 'n'
roll. Latin, blues and even some
country music, with most of its
tunes from 1950 to the present.
The band performed for the
park last fall, and are also fea-
tured around the community,
such as at the American Red
Cross' Red and White Ball.
Even if you haven't heard
them yet as a group, you might
actually have heard them per-
form with other bands. Let me
introduce you to this year's line
up so that you can see the tal-
ented performance that awaits


you.
Chuck White, band leader,
has been playing the saxophone
since 1972. He will perform on
the alto and tenor sax. "Fve
played all styles of music rang-
ing from country to classical,
from rock to jazz," Chuck said.
In addition to Groovus, you
might have heard Chuck play-
ing with the Highlandaires Big
Band, of which he is currently
president.
Tony Suazo, the lead guitarist
and vocalist, joined Groovus
last year. Tony attended the
Navy's school of music and
spent his naval career as a musi-
cian, composer and eventually
the fleet conductor. After retir-
ing from the Navy, Tony joined
up with Groovus and currently
writes, many of the arrange-
ments. He also provides the
sound system and studio. "I cur-


rently have two other
working bands' and
also perform with the
Highlandaires Big
Band," Tohy added.
Like Tony and
Chuck, drummer E.
Otis Love has been
performing for

Papier tole sculptures on display

SEBRING Sophie Mandzuk and her students are proud to
present an October exhibit, of Papier Tole (or "Paper
Sculpture").
This display is a unique, time-consuming art created from
intricate layers and textures of paper, enclosed under glass in a
three-dimensional frame. This art originated in France and in
English means "lacquered paper."' Subjects often include ani-
mals, birds, flowers, still-life portraits and scenery.
Mandzuk has studied in Canada at the Mohawk College and
has won many awards for her work. She is also a college-certi-
fied instructor in this art form and offers .classes locally in sea-
son.
This group will also be exhibiting their work in April 2007 at
the Seventh-day Adventist Church Fellowship Hall in Sebring.
To contact the artists, call Kathie Foll at 453-7196 or Mandzuk
at 453-7196.

A checklist for gardeners to go over this fall


Summer may still be with us
here in Florida, but autumn
temperatures will soon be on
the way. The shorter days and
cooler nighttime temperatures
of the fall are once again signal-
ing that the end of another sum-
mer growing season is drawing
to a close. As our vegetables
crops start to dwindle and our
summer perennials start to fade,
we. realize its time to start
preparing for the cooler months
ahead.
Gardening is a year-round
hobby, which requires specific
tasks at certain times of the
year, often planning for several
months ahead. Listed below is a
check list for fall.
Final pruning of cold sen-
sitive plants.
Groom roses to enhance
fall bloom.
Fertilize lawn, shrubs,
ornamental plants, mature cit-
rus trees and flowering trees.
Fertilize 'acid-loving
plants.


Fertilize palms,
correct magnesium
deficiencies of palms.
Yellowing of the older
frons is a symptom.
Watch for infesta-
tion of worms in lawn.
Watch for lace
bugs. White speaking
on tops of leaves, G
shiny black spots on ORO
the undersides. SE
Plant your veg-
etable garden. Anna
Start onion -
seedlings.
Divide flower-
ing perennials and bulbs.
Inspect your sprinkler sys-
tem. /
Irrigate, as needed using
restriction guidelines.
Continue composting yard
wastes.
In order 'to be ready to plant
in your garden during next
spring, you need to start prepar-
ing the soil sometimes in the
fall. To prepare your garden for
planting next spring, one of the


)WING

ASON

m Coley


most important things
is to spread and till
compost or peat moss
over your garden,
especially if it is a new
garden. Adding fertil-
izers and nutrients sev-
eral months ahead of
the actual planting will
help to ensure health-
ier plants.
Usually, a fence.
-sufficiently high and
close-woven to keep
out dogs, rabbits and
other animals should
surround the garden.


The damage done by stray ani-
mals during a season can equal
the cost of a fence. A fence can
also serve as a trellis for beans,
peas, tomatoes, and other crops
that need support. Before we
put a fence around our garden,
the rabbits were they're waiting
for me to finish setting out the
last plant and go inside, and
then the party began. They
always left their, thank you, to
help fertilizer,the next plants.


In most sections of the coun-
try, rodents of various kinds
damage garden crops, moles
and mice cause much injury.
Moles burrow under plants,
causing the soil to dry out
around the roots. Mice either
work independently or follow
the burrows made by the moles,,
destroying newly planted seeds
and young plants.
Garden pest such as weeds,
insects, fungi, viruses, and
nematodes, must be controlled
or the garden will not succeed.
Chemical controls must be used
carefully to prevent damage to
neighboring crops or subse-
quent crops. Make sure to fol-
low the instructions on the
label.


Anna R. Coley is a Master
gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute/

Getting

Florida's waters have always
been the home of the American
alligator. But with the current
population growth and develop-.
ment around lakes, especially to
Highlands County, human and
alligator interactions are
inevitable. Learning how we
can coexist with alligators, rec-
ognizing a threat to human safe-
ty, and knowing w~ho to call
when a problem arises is our.
responsibility.
First, to coexist with alliga-
tors there are a set of rules to
follow. You should never feed
an. alligator. Feeding alligators
in Florida is against the law.
Alligators will lose their natural
fear of humans if fed. Make
sure you dispose of fish scraps
in garbage cans and. not in the
water. Although you are not
intentionally feeding alligators
when you dispose of fish scraps
in water, the end result can be
the same feeding.
If you know of an area where
the feeding of alligators is
occurring or may occur, and
you have authorization to do so,
you can print and post a sigh

An actress portrays Martha
Washington.


HAVERY
Continued from 1C
The 'myth of George,
Washington's wooden teeth
was put to rest.
"They were either hippo
teeth or human teeth, never
wooden. And he didn't chop
down 'a cherry tree. That story
was told mostly as' a moral les-
son because, he was a moral
guy," -Haaren said.
George .Washington also
fought in the French and Indian
War. He, as an a\ id writer and
journalist from childhood.
The\ hate an amazing amount
of correspondence from when
he w roe to Martha and; other
people. These original docu-
ments are also on display.
"'That is why they are doing
these institutes, to show who
George Washington really
was," she said.

Comprehensive Assessment
Test preparation i- complete,
Ha'er\ is planning man\
avenues for presenting this
material to her students. She
also desires to do likewise for
her colleagues: nanmel., she
hopes to be a presenter in
February at 'Highlands
County's Six Hours of
Effective Training classes for
teachers.
She's confident that she can
present all she has learned from
a historical approach as well as
other ways. For example, she
can come, from a scientific
standpoint when talking about
Washington's teeth.
She can demonstrate his life
vocationally as she teaches
about 18th century-sitle stir-
veying.
",I x ant to make this a hands-
on experience for my students,"
Havery said. "I'm even think-
ing of dressing up like Martha
Washington."
Havery explained that vice
regents (trustees) purchased
and maintain the Mt.- Vernon
property and bring all of this
together for the teachers.
"They are forever interpret-
ing the property and doing
research. This. has been the
most awesome teaching experi-
ence of my life," she said.
And yet, she is already con-
templating making another pil-
grimage to visit San Salvador
next summer.
"I want to study leather back
turtles and bring back a scien-
tific experience to my stu-
dents," Havery said.
But. for now, she's eager to
get the word out about her
incredible journey so that other
teachers will catch the vision
and apply hopefully achiev-
ing a dream of their own that
will enhance their teaching
careers.

If you see an alligator, leave

kill,. harass, molest or attempt to
move an alligator. This is for
your safety; the potential for
being bitten or injured by a pro-

JEFF CANTWELL/News-Sun
Sebring quarterback A.C. Wilson weaves his way through the Okeechobee defense Friday night.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
touchdown run as he dove over
the pylon.
The biggest pass play of the
night came on Sebring's first
possession in the second quar-
ter. Quarterback A.C. Wilson
hit his biggest target tight
end Kyle Hoffner -- across the
middle. Hoffner plowed his
way to the sideline, trucking 67
yards to give the Streaks a 14-0
lead.
Going into the contest, the,
Streaks knew their toughest
defensive battle would be keep-
ing running back Lonnie Pryor
in check. Sebring did more than
that, completely nullif ing the
talented back and holding him
to 1 yard rushing on the night.
Sebring orchestrated 'its
longest drive of the night late in
the second quarter. After taking
over at the 50, Wilson hit
Hoffner again for a 31-yard
pass and the offense pounded
its way to the goal line, where
Wilson ran it in himself from 1
yard out.
After the homecoming royal-
ty ceremony at halftime, there,
was very little drama for the
Sebring crowd i. th'e 'second
half. L ,.
Without the running game as
an option,' the desperate
Brahmans looked to pass late in
the game. The strategy worked
intermittently until the
Williams' interception, which
effectively put the game away.
Despite the victory, Hamlin
wasn't overwhelmingly,
pleased with the performance
of the team. Still, a homecom-
ing win will get any coach
smiling, regardless of the route
taken.
"Every win's a good one. It
wasn't pretty, but it's a good
one," Hamlin said over the
echoing post-game snare
drums. "The defense played a
real good game. We seem to get,
some things going offensively
and then shoot ourselves.in the
foot. We've got to work on
that."
The Streaks hope to get the
running game in order before
next week's District 12-3A bat-
tle with DeSoto.
"DeSoto is always going to
be a good football team,"
Hamlin said. "They're going to
have good athletes and they're
going to get after it. We're
going to have to play our best
game of the season to win, no
doubt.",

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
yard touchdown pass with 29.7
seconds left in the half for a 12-
8 Red Devil lead at intermis-
sion.
The score hadn't changed
heading into the fourth quarter,
but the Devils began to pull
away with Cooper's 15-yard
touchdown run on the third play
of the final frame.
Two plays after David
Shoeman whose 76-yard
return to the end zone was
called back on a penalty got
the second of Avon Park's three
second-half interceptions, the
'Devils put it away when Hill
and Wyche connected for a 49-
yard touchdown pass with 8:11
left in the game.
"That Marcus Wyche is
something special. He really
keeps us in the ball -game,"
Perkins said. "And Virgil is
coming along."
The Dragons, who have 20
less players on :he roster than
the Devils, impressed Perkins
with their tenacity. Lake Placid
got 58 yards rushing from
Stephen Gist, 41 from Brown,
40 from O.J. Williams and 36
from Roytre Hill, but couldn't
find the end zone.
"I thought those 18 gu:,, on
the other side plai ed a heck of a
game tonight," Perkins said.
"I'm the new guy in town, but I
respect halkit the guy's doing
over there. They pla. ed well,
tonight."
That sentiment asn't exact-
ly echoed by Lake Placid coicli
Shaw Maddox.
