application


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Highlands County com-
mission chairman Bob Bullard confirmed
Tuesday. that if something appears too good
to be true, beware.
During the steering committee meetings
that led to workshops. public hearings and
eventual adoption of impact fees. one thing
was agreed upon completed applications
submitted to the planning department on or
before Dec. 31 wouldn't be subject to the
so-called pay-as-you-grow fees
Deemed exorbitant and a crow% th killer by
developers and an all-but-mandated neces-
sitS bN some commissioners and counts
staff. the fee Ntructure was adopted at a
compromised rate of 25 percent for seen
functional areas i(which include la\\
enforcement, correctional facilities, emer-
gence medical services, fire ser ices, parks
and recreation, transportation and libraries.)
and 50 percent for schools, based on figures
provided b) Tindale-Oliver & Associates.
"I should have known that it was going to
come back and haunt us," Bullard said dur-
ing a several-hours long workshop that
mostly dealt with .the definition of a com-
pleted building permit application, but also
addressed how impact fees are calculated
for residential properties gross square
footage or living spaces. either under roof
or subject to air conditioning.
Several developers spoke during the
workshop. arguing that it is not their fault it
bureaucratic red tape at the counts and state
levels slow s the permitting process.
"They're just looking for a -as to get
around impact fees." Bill Youngman coun-
tered. arguing that there was no apparent
limitation on how long a completed but not
permitted application could sit in the coun-
ty offices before expiring. "Ever\ dollar not
paid by an impact fee is paid, b a taxpa'.er."
Carl Cool. county administrator, said it
takes about three weeks from the ume an
application is initiated until it is approved.
prompting commissioner Barbara Stewarn
to suggest having applications in as early as
Dec. 1.
"It. is our opinion that we have not
received a complete application until all the
items on this checklist are submitted," Cool
said early in the discussion, referencing a
15-point residential permitting checklist
that requires approval by five departments
zoning, planning, health, county engi-
neer and 911 addressing.
The form and process have been in place
about 10 years, a similar guide tor business
construction (with additional state agencies"
approval required) has been in use since
1997.
To the chagrin of developers John
Borgemeister. Gregor> Arnone, Jeff Parker
and others at the meeting. the board was
close to appro% ing a police clarification that
would have called for two sets of approved
draw. ings for residential permits, based on a
memorandum dated Oct. 4 that %%as given to
the board by Helen McKinney of the build--
ing department.
But, after much consternation, from the
builders, the commission was made aware
that the requirement for "approved" plans
Nwas in the Oct. 4 memo onlN, and not in the
checklist provided to the public for the past
10 Nears.

SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center is get-
ting ready to start a $3.5 million
emergency room renovation
project, which will almost dou-
ble the size of the existing ER.
"The emergency department
is the front door to our hospi-
tal," Chief Nursing Officer
Allison Mulholland said. "And
we need to make it easy for peo-
ple to come and access our
services.
"The patient is the focus of
all our decision making, and so
if I had to look at why we're
doing this, it's for the patients
that we're here, to serve."
The renovation, which offi-
cials hope to start Wednesday,
Oct. 18, will in effect divide the
ER into two sections one for
the more critical patients and
the other for less critical ones.
The area where the ambu-
lances pull into now will be the
new area for walk-in patients
when construction is complete,
and the ambulance bays will be
moved to the other side. The
trauma side of the ER will
include a seclusion room,
which allows direct observation
for psychiatric patients, as well
as private rooms. This section
will be in an area that used to
house an intensive care unit.
The area is designed so nurses
can directly see all the rooms ,
from the center.

Ordinances need more work


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY.
News-Sun
.AVON PARK Flashes of
frustration occasionally raised
voices during Monday night's
city council meeting.
The subject was code
enforcement ordinances, 'with
the city council, agreeing that
-the ordinances needed more
work.
Every council member spoke
to the issue in the course of the
meeting. Members reminded
city staff and the audience that
they N antt.Ih new ordinances
to be designed to deal meaning-
fully tith overcrowding and
negligent absentee landlords.
That is because the. ordinances
are meant to solve problems
brought on by. migrant popula-
tions flowing through the city.
The discussion was charged
with emotion.
Councilman George Hall
was unhappy. with what he
characterized as vague and sub-
jective language in the ordi-
nance. "Some language is so
general it won't help," he said
at one point. "The wording just


,scares me."
Hall wants verN specific lan-
guage used instead. He is hop-
ing for sets of objective stan-
dards and tight definitions. As
an example, he suggested citing
a building owner it 25 percent
of a building's paint is peeling.
"There are a, few places
where we put in specific lan-_
guage," he added, "and I think
that's great."
Mayor Sharon 'Schuler
agreed. "It's not strongenough
to get us where we want to be,"
she said.
She added, facetiously, to
laughter in the audience, "I'd
like to arrest everyone," when
the issue of sanctions was
raised. She went on to say that
research had shown the city
could attach liens to vehicles
and boats, adding that they may
be towed off of private property
by the police.
This is important, supporters
of the ordinances say, because it
makes it more likely the city
can successfully pressure a
landlord into code compliance.
However, language regarding


the lienf'procedure will have to
be added as it is not an element
now.
The city's' new attorney .
Gerald Buhr, warned' council
members that objective criteria
isn't always possible. That is
because 'the legal discussion
rests on a subjective measure:
Does .(an action) interfere with
another's property or happi-
ness?
Buhr sgid that while he
thought there %as "no perfect
%way" to write the ordinances.
"they can be tightened up.Y
Hall asked when the council
could expect to see rewritten
ordinances. He was told by the
first council meeting': in
November.
Councilwoman Brenda Gray
asked City Manager C.B.
Shirey to make sure the city.
was living up to its own codes.
Some city properties, she said,
were not properly mowed. T6
insure compliance from others,
she said, it was essential that
the city be in compliance as
well.


Fire department sets grand opening


LAKE PLACID The Lake
Placid Volunteer Fire
Department will host a grand
opening Saturday of the
restored Lake" Placid Fire
Department.
The department will be serv-
ing 200 hot dogs and iced teas

strations during those hours

response, emergency medical
services back up and other serv-
ices for the Greater Lake Placid

teers who are certified in vari-


ous firefighting and search and
rescue areas service the Lake
Placid area.
The fire department suffered
severe damage during the 2004
hurricane season. Its restoration

ing and meeting areas, a kitchen
and a sleeping area. The station


has the' future in mind with

then move to that area and con-
struction will begin on Phase 2,
which is supposed to take about
60 days. The goal is for the
entire project to be completed
in 180 days.
The hospital is waiting on
final- approval from the city
before they begin construction.
They have already made all the
preliminary preparations,
including ordering new equip-
ment and moving everything
out of the soon-to-be demol-
ished rooms.
Renovating the existing
structure will cause "minimal
disruption to our operations,"
Thomas said, "plus it's some-
thing that we can do quickly
and quickly realize the benefits,
rather than doing a brand new
ER where we might be under
construction for a year or
longer.",
But the project is hot just a
remodeling. All equipment,
from the floor to the ceiling,
will be replaced.
"Every faucet, every every-
thing will be brand new in that
emergency room," Border said.
Hospital officials believe the
project will be of enormous
benefit to the community.
"We're very excited, about
this project and about the
improvements and upgrades to
the hospital," Border said: "Our
employees are telling us ho\\
excited they are, and I think the
community should be very
excited.
"This is their hospital. 'It

Negron joins local candidates at forum --'- -. "


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
The Highlands County
Homeowners Association host-
ed a litany of political candi-
dates at its Monday meeting.
Each candidate gave a three-
minute opening statement, and
then took three questions from
the audience, made up mostly
of seniors.
A synopsis of each race:
U.S. House District 16
Democrat Tim Mahoney was.
unable to attend the meeting,
but new Republican challenger
Joe Negron spoke at the meet-
ing.
Negron viewed the event as a
job interview, and he stressed
that "this election is not a refer-
endum on Mark Foley."
He served in the state
Legislature for six years, and he
chaired the Appropriations
Committee for the past two
years.
"I know that Florida isn't just
South Beach and Disney World"
and gated communities,"
Negron said. "It's also a place
where people grow things and
raise cattle, and I understand
this part of the district. It's
important to me."
On the issue of immigration,
Negron said that those who
want to come to' the United
States "need to wait in line. You
don't cut in front of ,other peo-
ple, and we shouldn't, reward
illegal behavior."
Negron and Mahoney have
two debates scheduled current-
ly, on Oct. 24 and Oct. 26.
Negron challenged Mahoney to
a series of eight debates, one for'
every county of the district, in a
letter sent Tuesday. Mahoney
has yet to respond. :
Negron closed his comments
by saying 'that, if 'elected, he
will be accessible to the citizens
of Highlands County.
"I'll be here every single
week,",he said," and if I'm for-
tunate enough to win, you'll see
me after that loo."

I believe that we need people in
Tallahassee with fresh ideas,"
she said. "But most importantly
we needed someone there with
real-world working experience,
a proven record of leadership,
and an ability to solve prob-
lems.
"I believed I was that person
then and I still believe that
today."
Grimsley said her four key
issues were education, agricul-
ture, business issues, and health
care. She stressed the impor-
tance of vocational education at
the high school level for those
who might not go to college. .
Grimsley touted the passing
of a bill that she said gave
school districts the flexibility to
implement vocational training,
so that a student can graduate
with a high school diploma and
certification fort a vocation,
such as auto mechanic.
Grimsley also discussed the
nursing and teacher shortages in
the county, and also said she
would do something about what
she described as the state's
"health care crisis."
Her challenger, Democrat
Zane Thomas, said he was run-
ning because of the lack of
leadership in the country today.
"This country is in trouble,"
Thomas said we'rer e heading in
the wrong direction and we
need new leadership that i's
going to fix some of these prob-
lems."
Thomas served overseas in
the Navy' for 25 years, and he
initially moved to the area to
spend more time with his par-
ents and grandparents. He said
during his time in the military.
he didn't have a political phi-
losophy.
'Thomas said education was
his top priority, and he would
look closely at the way money

useful because it took the bur-
den off local taxpayers. He said
the current rate is 'too low," but
was set that way because they
needed time to look and see if
that was the proper rate.
He also said the county was-
n't growing like they thought it
would, and commissioners need
to look more closely at the
budget.
Conda Ruckman, one of the
two challengers in the race, is
running to "rebel against the
amateur communistic policies
of Highlands County govern-
ment," according to his cam-
paign flyer.
He wants to eliminate the
bureaucracy of the county, and
.doesn't trust current politicians.
Ruckman said he had infor-
mation on the county taxes and
impact fees in his possession. "I
have plenty of information in
black and white," he said.
He wondered why the com-
mission gave Albertson's gro-
cery store, a $500,000 grant to
come in 1996, and said "now
we have impact fees. We're
going the other way."
SThe third challenger in the
race, Audrey Vickers, touted
her experience as a county com-
missioner and in the newspaper
and publishing business. .'
Vickers. who preioiusly
served as a county commission-
er from 1990 to 1994, said she.
"would have done a lot more'
(research) on the impact fees


than one year."
She's for focusing on preven-
tion in health care, as well as
increased "family and commu-
nity involvement" in education.
All three candidates were
asked whether they would
approve of the county taking

Bates grew up in Lake Placid,
and has been involved in sever-

He said growth in the county
is "inevitable, but I think we
need to manage and control that
growth so we don't become
another Orange County."
He touted his preparation as a
major reason why he would be,
an effective commissioner.

How does inflation affect those


approaching or in retirement?


Special to the News-Sun
One of the biggest unknown s
facing the America's bab.
boomer generation is what
affect inflation %will have on an
individual's retirement when
they reach retirement age.
The Federal' Reserve
Chairman Ben,Bernanke chose
not to increase the federal inter -
est rate last month, 'after a long
rate-raising campaign that
began more than two years ago.
The fear of inflation could
prompt more increases later.,
Does the fear of inflation
affect how pre-retirees or
retirees plan to maintain their
standard of living in retire-
ment?' Absolutely. With both
inflation and life e\pectancy on
- the rise, the state of the econo-
my will have a dramatic impact
on a retiree's standard of living.
What may look like a sizable
retirement account today may
shrink substantially in value
over the years due to inflation.
As an example, if inflation
were to increase by a modest 3
percent per year, a person retir-
ing today at age 60 on a yearly\
income of $40,000, will need
more than $72,000 by the time
they're 80 to maintain their
standard of living.
"Inflation is a new problem
for 'us today. because of the
explosion in life expectancy,'"
stated financial 'advisor Phillip
Statler, president of Highland
County based Statler Financial
Services Inc. "If a person retire"
at 65 and lives until he's 90.
then there is a good chance thatI
the value of their yearly income
from their retirement accounts
will be cut in half, and maybe
cut in half again because of
inflation."
As a comparison, 'take into
account the recent rise in the
cost of gasoline: Two years ago
a gallon of regular gasoline was
$1.76. During the summer it
was hovering more than $3.05 a
gallon. At that rate, by 2016.
American's could expect to be
paying more than $6 a gallon.
An additional factor to be con-
cerned with is the rise in med-
ical costs. Costs continue to rise
above inflation figures as baby
boomers enter retirement.
According to "CNNMoney" a
typical retired couple will
spend on prescriptions,

when it was estimated to be
$190,000.,
When asked if one can plan
ahead for the risk of inflation in
retirement, Statler responded


with, "Yes, one can prepare
themselves for the inevitable.
Although it's impossible to pre-
dict the actual rate of inflation
over the next 10 or 20 years,
people can take proactive steps
to ensure they've built an 'infla-

Skids greased for Zenons


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The nominee
for best place to watch the
Zenon Awards Anthony's
Lounge.
With a flat screen television
behind the Highlands Little
Theatre bar and free flowing
(though not free) spirits, Jackie
"The Bomb" Scheil found her-
self busy serving cheer to tuxe-
do-clad men and women
dressed to the nines for the
affair capping arduous five-play
season.
"I'm always out here in the
bar," Scheil said, declining
knowledge when asked about a
presenter at last year's awards
who allegedly was drunk.
Taking timeto define "best"
and "supporting," Pete Pollard
feigned intoxication during his
comedic delivery of the award
for best supporting actress,
prompting the question posed to
Scheil.
Compared io Hollywood's
Oscars and New York's Tonys,
which can seemingly go on for-
ever, Highlands' Zenons was-
relatively short at three hours
and it flew by with an entertain-
ing "Walk thru Broadway" a

of Highlands Little Theatre's
most precocious and experi-
enced clowns: Phil Attinger.

The entertainment included
songs from 14 Tony 'winning
musicals, including a medley
from. Kander .and Ebb's
.Chicago.", sung by the cast
members who % ill present the
Broadway hit as the opening
sholt of this No ember.

Amid resupply runs between
the bar and the liqueur closet,
Scheil had the opportunity to
overhear a broad range of con-
versations from a man's mili-
tary service in Iraq to a banter
about bosoms.
What she didn't hear was that
she and Ellen Lemos were
picked for one of the four
Zenons given for Board Service
for their "endless efforts run-,
ning Anthony's Lounge." .
"It's Scheil," she said to
nobody in particular, upon hear-
ing her name mispronounced.
"S-C-H-E-I-L."
After confirmation from bar
patrons 'that her name was
annotmced as a winner, and at
their urging, Scheil zipped from
the lounge to center stage to
accept her accolades.,
Other equally important
behind-the-scenes awards for

Farm Service Agency announces


2007 program sign-up period


Helping keep high schools drug free


Special to the News-Sun
GAINESVILLE -
Enrollment for the 2007 Direct
and Counter-cyclical Payment
Program (DCP) continues
through June 1, announced
Kevin L. Kelley, state Farm
Service Agency executive,
director in Florida.
Farmers are encouraged to
sign up for the program through
the online DCP sign-up service
where they can choose payment
options, assign crop shares and
sign and submit their contracts
from any computer with
Internet access. DCP partici-
pants can also view and print
out submitted contract options
at any time through the online
process.
"Producers will find .the
Internet-based DCP sign-up
service convenient and very
user friendly," Kelley said.
Agricultural producers can
also visit any USDA Service
Center or their administratively
assigned center, to complete
their 2007 DCP contract.
Following the June 1 deadline,
USDA will accept late applica-
tions through Sept. 30, 2007,
with a $100 late fee. While
DCP participants must sign
DCP contracts annually, pro-


ducers can choose not to partic-
ipate in the program in any
given year.
The electronic DCP (or
eDCP) service saves producers
time, reduces paperwork and
speeds up contract processing at
USDA Farm Service Agency
offices. It is available to all pro-
ducers who are eligible to par-
ticipate in DCP and who obtain
eAuthentication accounts. The
service has strict security meas-
ures to protect participants' pri-
vate information.
The electronic service is
available by going to
www.fsa. usda.gov/FSA/webapp
?area=online&subject=land-
ing&topic=dcp on the Internet
and clicking on "Access eDCP
Service." To access the service,
producers must have an active
USDA eAuthentication Level 2
account, which requires filling
out an online registration form
at www.eauth.egov.usda.gov
followed by a visit to ,the local
USDA Service Center for iden-
tity verification.,
USDA computes. DCP pay-
ments using base acres and pay-
ment yields established for each
farm. Direct payments provide
no incentive to increase produc-
tion of any certain crop,


because the payments are not
based on producers' current
production choices. Producers
receive direct payments at rates
established by statute regard-
less of market prices.
For 2007, eligible producers
may request to receive direct
advance payments based on 22
percent of the direct payment
rate for each commodity associ-
ated with the farm. USDA will
issue DCP direct advance pay-
ments beginning Dec. 1.
Counter-cyclical payments
provide support counter to the
cycle of market prices as part of
a "safety net" in the event of
low crop prices. These pay-
ments are only issued if the
effective price for a commodity
(which takes into account the
direct payment rate, market
price and loan rate) is below the
target price for the commodity.
Counter-cyclical payment rates
vary depending on market
prices.
For more information on
DCP, a fact: sheet may be
viewed online at: www.fsa.:

AIR
Continued from 9A
As an employee of Float
Planes, Carlaccine is moving
toward an endorsement to
instruct would-be sport avia-
tion pilots. Specifically, he'll
be an empathetic mentor to
aspiring flyers with handicaps
of their own.
In addition to instruction,
Float Planes sells a variety of
new and used aircraft in cate-
gories including three-axis,
sport, powered parachute and
weight-shift.
It's this latter function that
resulted in what Okun
describes as the "first time ...
ever" that a paraplegic has
flown cross-country in a
weight-shift trike.
The company sold an
Aeroprakt 22 three-axis plane
to a California customer.
"We have this airplane that
somebody bought and we have
to deliver it," Carlaccine
explained. "The only way to do
that is to fly it out there ....


ZENONS
Continued from 6A
Heather Boyce pleased the
capacity, crowd with "Here I
Am," from "Dirty Rotten
Scoundrels; Loraine Biron star-
tled the audience with
"Special," from Avenue Q.; and
Kelly Pelham and Josh
McGhee projected tenderness
in their duet from Wicked, "As
Long As You're Mine."
Chris Moore demonstrated
he could sing as well as act and
dance when he sang Billy Joel's
"Innocent Man," from "Movin'
Out" while Deborah' Parker
proved she was still in touch
with her cheerleading skills
when she danced and sang
"New Attitude" from
"Menopause" with Tammie
Pollard, Kirstin Taylor, and
Marcia Ward as her back-up
.trio.
The final two numbers of Act
I of the 21st Zenons were
"Purpose," another "Avenue
Q." song, performed by Chris
Martin and danced by Lkdia
Ford, Sara Heacock. Tara


Then, somebody said, 'Hey
Jim!'"
Plans were made for
Carlaccine to fly his trike
while John Long flew the A-
22. But Long's plane isn't
ready for delivery.
So, Long will fly another
craft instead to support
Carlaccine's flight, which was
elevated from secondary to pri-
mary mission.
"The thing that's difficult
about the trip is not the physi-
cal, it's the psychological,"
Okun said, explaining that the
flying trike exposes its passen-
ger to the elements, which can
be taxing. "It was never intend-
ed to be a long-distance craft."
While Long will provide
technical and moral support, .
Okun said Carlaccine's cumu-
lative experience makes him
the "father" of the trip and
he'll be responsible for opera-
tional decisions during the trek
to the West Coast, with stops at
air shows in Arizona and
California, and over the Grand
Canyon on the return leg.
Okun allotted two months


Henderson, Kathi Jahnke,
Annie Noethlich, and Lucia
Tolosa, .and "Once Upon a
Time," from "Brooklyn The
Musical," performed by Patty
Young with Stephen Gercken,
Josh McGhee, and Kelly and
Sarah Pelham.
Act II opened with an ener-
getic production number from
"The Boy From Oz," "I Go to
Rio," sung by Phil Attinger and
danced by Heather Boyce,
Stephen Gercken, Chris Hayes,
Wes Hollan, Chris Martin, Josh
McGhee, Sarah Pelham, Ashley
Richardson,. Jenny Rowe, and
Lucia Tolosa. This number was
choreographed by Ashley
Richardson, who also did the
-choreography for the other
number from. The Boy From
Oz," "She Loves to Hear the
Music," performed by Kathi
Jahnke and Ashley.
Art Harriman was in his ele-
ment rendering of "Love
Sneaks In," from "Dirty Rotten
Scoundrels" and Chris Hayes
wowed his, audience with
"Can't Take My Eyes Off of
You" from the 2006 Tony win-
ning musical "The Jersey
Boys."


for the journey. The trike runs
on standard automotive fuel.
With an 18-gallon tank and
cruising speeds of 60 knots,
Carlaccine can fly about six
hours between fill-ups.
He chose the trike because it
best accommodates him with
an easily accessible cockpit.
Brake and throttle controls
were moved from the floor-
board to the wing's control bar
- modifications that better
serve him on the ground than
in the air.
"You're only handicapped
on the ground, and in your
mind," Carlaccine said,
explaining that once airborne
he leaves his disability as well
as his wheelchair behind.
His wheelchair is the one
aspect that is keeping him
being a 100-percent independ-
ent pilot he can't bring it
with him on the trike.
He tested a specially-made
saddle bag, in which he put his
chair but found that it blocked
the radiator and caused over-
heating. Okun said a solution
to that hurdle is in the works.


The entertainment for Act II
ended with the "Spamalot
Medley", "Feeling Good" from
The Roar of the Greasepaint,
the Smell of the Crowd, beauti-'
fully rendered by Pete Pollard,
and the "Chicago Medley" as a
preview of next year's opening
show.
Special Thanks was given to
the Hansen Foundation for-their'
continued financial support of
the Zenon Awards Program and
to Mike Carter of The NCT
Group CPA's anJ his staff who
have, tabulated the Zenon
results and kept the secrets until
the envelopes were opened.
The production team of the
21st annual Zenon Awards
included: director, Patty Young;
administrator, Jennifer Wester-
gom; mentor to director Young,
Pete Pollard;' announcer, Steve
McDaniel; stage manager, Stan
Epling II; stage right, Danny

lighting technician, Heidi
Hoffman; sound design, Epling;

McMillian: pre-party coordina-
tor and decorations, Kathi

McHugh.


Whether his sojourn breaks
or establishes a record is some-
thing he's leaving to Guinness
to determine.
When he and Long depart
Friday, his goal will be to
enjoy the trip.
. "I'm just a guy," Carlaccine
said, acknowledging that he's
neither a pioneer nor innovator
-just a guy who loves to fly.
"I guess I don't get it when
people fail to understand how I
had to get back in the air
again."


STORAGE
Continued from 1A
sionally stop work to ask.their
teacher questions. The students
are interested and have a real
investment in the finished
product, and this excitement
and enthusiasm comes through
in, their commitment to them-
selves, each other and local
area people to receive their
project, to do the best job and
make sure they do it right.
Nothing is prefabricated, as
Brown pointed out, it's merely
"a bunch of sticks" that they
turn into something more, and
over time their project takes
shape and comes closer and
closer to being the finished
product.
The current storage unit
under construction is going to a
local Avon Park-Habitat house,
so the kids also have a sense of
pride in giving back to the
community and making a dif-
ference.

approved in big pasteboard
boxes," Cool said, noting that
some probably have been aban-
doned.
Contrary to a citizen's con-
cern that there was no time
limit on completed applica-
tions, Bullard explained that
state statute requires builders to
complete their application
process, paying for and picking
up their permits, within six
months of having the design
plans approved.
"We've- been lenient on this
in the past ... but we're going to
have to go by the letter of the
law now," Bullard said Tuesday
evening.
In addition to defining a
completed application, the
commissioners clarified that
residential properties will be
defined in square footage calcu-
lated from "living areas" that
are serviced by an air condi-
tioner.

Myan's Nails & Spa adds a special touch


Truongs offer
manicures, pedicures,
massages and nail
artistry
By SUNNY K. ZENGLER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Myan's Nails & Spa
offers the personal touch of customer serv-
ice in manicures, pedicures, massage and
nail artistry.
The owner/manager of Myan's Nails &
Spa is Hung Truong. Truong stated the
reason he chose to start his business in
Sebring is because he and his staff could
provide the best nail arid spa services in
the area.
MNl\ oal henry finishing my schooling
was to beautify one lady at a time,"
Truong said. "The things that make us dif-
ferent froni our competitors are we are
young and bring a fresh taste to the indus-
try. Our .taff is \ery artistic and creative.
and we bring a personal touch to every,
one of our sert ices. Our bottom line is
being a family business and offering )ou
the best in to n." Truong said.
Truong has been pleased %%ith M\Nan's
growth in the six months the\' e been
open in Sebring. Een thouihli other shops
may be located in higher traffic ,areas.
"ord of mouth" customers have built
S '.lan\'s reputation in the market. "People
will go out of their %%ay to get the be-'t
services or products." Truong said. Being
in the Sebnny historical district has pro% en
beneficial. avs iani of the Circle's bui-
nesses refer clients to Ml)an's, ais %ell as-
satisfied clients N ho find the free accessi--
.ble parking to be a big plus.
NMlan's Nails & Spa offers a discount to
semnors and students. A st tdent identifica-
Lion card "\ill suffice to receive the student
discount. If a lady ilhes to claim being
more than 55 years old. the MNIan's staff
Iill not argue about granting a discount to
her. according to Truong's % ife Tracy. One
thing both Hung and Tracy are LIno- n for


is their tremendous senses ol humor. The\
both enIo\ the jokes
their customers bring .
them and look forward y goa
to sharing them with
their clientele. finishing
"W while opening a

thing to do because of

all m\ effort to a ser\ ice and know there
will be a rew ard in return. A smile from
the customer or an expression of gratitude
gives me more encouragement to strive for
excellence. Truong said.

tomner_," IKatlue Weed said \ith a bit grin.
Weed went on to explain she had an aller-
g\ to some of the standard nail care prod-
ucts and has found MNyan's to be helpful in
caring for and beautifying her hands. Hung
Truone then gaPe a quick explanation of
the difference bemteen acr\ li? nails and
gel nails, and his technique for application
that makes the proces'- e\cn better. He said
that gel nails are actually
the fastest sern ice a\ail-
when able, but onl ift you get
it right. Hung Truong
my uses a brush rather than
a tube so there are no
was to lumps in the application.
The gel actually acts as a
ne lady sealer and prevents
staining or discoloration.
Some of the ser, ices
featured at lM\an's Naiis
HUNG TRUONG & Spa include three dif-
ferent levels ot pedicures.
and leg massages, full
sets and tips. nail repairs and fills, and
one-of-kind hand-painted nail designs.
Leather pedicure chairs that massage and
'i brate a customer's back whilee their feet
are being pampered is an extreniel\ relax-
ing experience at M\an's.
Working previously as nadl technicians
in Michican and Cocoa Beach. Trac\ and


Hung. respecuiel., are happ. to be in
Highlands Counts. Trjac wanted to "settle
dow n and ha\ e a home," and thought
Sebring to be a great place to make that
happen. Hung chose Sebring because of
the mobile home. recreational eluhicle and
senior communities here. Their original
plan w\as to be able to provide sert ices for
seniors ho v. ere unable to go to a shop
because ot transportation or mobility chal-
lenges. The logistics and legalities of a
mobile workshop. how\exer, made a sta-
tionary shop necessary. and so. NMlan's
Nails & Spa came about.
Truong personal3 selects a \er. eclectic
collection of Eastern and Western back-
ground mtsic to entertain as well. A light
bo\ for both hands and feet is a unique
serve ice for those in a hurry. While a cus-
tomer is letting their nails dr\. the. can

discussed in these, articles are
summarized on the new "Club
Red Card" that you will receive
the next time you register to

ably memorized:

tion is eligible to donate, yet
only 5 percent actually do

reduced risk of heart attack,
stroke and cancer ;.
You can donate whole
blood every 56 days: that's up
to six times a year
. Red cells have. a shelf life
of 42 days; platelets only 5 days
Save more lives by donat-
ing platelets up to 24 times a

fused within 72 hours after col-
lection
M Every three seconds a pint

One pint can save tip to
three lives
S Your donation can, trans-
fuse up to four babies.
The most important fact of
all is: The rarest blood type is
the one that is hot available
when it is needed. '
Of the blood types, 37 per-
cent of our population has 0

When time is of the essence

Real reason to say no

A program that was brought to Highlands County after
seeing it work in another county may be here to stay and,
if so, is certain to help with the problem of children and
drugs.
Rodney Hollinger, coordinator of student services for
the Highlands County School District, shared the first
results of the newly instituted random student drug test-
ing program.
Hollinger brought the program to Highlands County
after being inspired by another school district's drug test-
ing program. He learned about that program, when he
attended a White House sponsored conference in
Orlando 6n the problem of children and drugs.
Hollinger talked briefly last week with the Highlands
County Coalition, a network organization dedicated to
helping local service agencies reduce drug use among
young people by providing conduits for communication
between them and hosting special events, like the teen
panels for middle school girls every year.
To date, 86 students have been tested for drug use; 39
from Sebring High School, 29 from Avon Park High
School, and 22 from Lake Placid High School. Typically;
six Sebring students, five Avon Park students, and four
Lake Placid students are tested every week.
Students who want to take part in team sports, or extra-
or co-curricular activities, or park a car on campus, must
register for the testing pool. Parents may volunteer their
children, and students may volunteer of their own voli-
tion..
A little more than half of all students are in the testing
pool Sebring has a little more than 800 students; Avon
Park just below 500. Lake Placid had the largest group
proportionately, 500 students. That's a good ratio of stu-
dents who are willing to participate. A sign that Hollinger
and the district are one to,a good thing here, thanks to the
students and their parents ... or maybe their wishes to
participate-in school functions.
Students who appear under the influence may also be
tested at the time they appear under the influence.
Hollinger said the drug test shows results in about two
minutes, and can detect six different categories of sub-
stances.
Of the 86 students tested so far, only two showed a
non-negative result. Results are not referred to as posi-
tive 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 a l aN s a
positive sign of illicit drug use.
One of the two non-negative results, a student was
found to have been under a doctor's care, taking a pre-
scription medication as prescribed. 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 accurate, showing the use
of marijuana. That student had to forfeit a week of privi-
leges and is attending six weeks of special counseling at
no cost to the student or the student's family.
-Hollinger said only two students have been tested for
appearing under the influence so far this year. Both stu-
dents were observed to be disoriented and unsteady on
their feet. In one case the student was found to have a
medical problem linked to diabetes, a condition the stu-
dent and the student'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 hospital for a stomach pumping.
The district has already 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 not liable for
criminal action or expulsion, students found under the
influence are.
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 hearings involving drug use.
Students' and parents' reactions have been over-
whelmingly positive,, especially after questions regarding
the selection of students. and privacy issues were
answered.
Parents have a need to know if their child is in danger
of drug or alcohol usage. For the most part the students
appreciate the testing or are unconcerned about it.
How effective this program will be can only be deter-
mined in time, but it's one sure step in the right direction
to helping give our children a real reason to say no when
with friends and asked to join in drug use.


Community

Editor:
The school district's annual
College Night event was Sept.
28 at the Ag-Civic Center in
Sebring. College Night is
attended by parents and stu-
dents from our county's three
high schools and area private
schools. This year's event was
very successful.
We had tremendous support
from everyone involved; high
school counselors and princi-
pals, the News-Sun, Highlands


Today and some of our local

When time is of the essence,
what are you to do? When your
days are numbered, where
should you turn? When time is
of the essence, what are your
goals and priorities in life? Do
they change?
For all of you who believe
that this life will never end, I
beg to differ with you. This life
is fleeting and you will never
know when it is your turn to
end.
This is not to be morbid, so I
hope that you do not think of it
in .those terms. Yet, if you
believe that you have all the
time in the world, you most cer-
tainly are wrong. You never
know if tomorrow is the day in
which your entire life might

change.
Here recently there have
been events that have happened
to people that I know that made
me realize how short, how
fleeting, our lives really and


truly are. In.one day, you could
be healthy and the next it has
ended. This has happened to
people who never expected it to
occur.
Again and again we hear
about what we would do if we
knew that this was our last day.
There has been everything from
songs to movies about this very
subject. Yet, how often do we
actually take heed to its mes-
sage? Very seldom, I know
many people would be living
this life a bit differently.
As C.S. Lewis stated, "The
future is something which
everyone reaches at the rate of
.60 minutes an hour, whatever
he does, whoever he is."
Time essentially does not


care who you are, where you
come from, what your career is,
or how you think you want to
live your life. It just keeps tick-
ing on and on and on.
So, I ask of you again, if time
is of the essence what would
you do? Would you decide to
finally give church a chance?
Talk to that family member in
which you have not done in
years? Resolve differences? Or
how about coming back to the
Lord?

Election is


drawing nearer
Editor:
The Veterans of Foreign
Wars Ladies Auxiliary of Post
9853 had the honor of Tom
Macklin who is running for
lieutenant governor for the
state of Florida, to be our guest
speaker at our regular Auxiliary
meeting, which was on Aug. 4.
With it getting so close to
voting for our choice of candi-
date Candidates if you would
like to write a letter to him or
her, the suggestion was made to
send your letter to the Home
Offices in Florida of the legis-
lator so they don't have to sit in
the Pennsylvania clearing
house for a couple of weeks to
be tested for unknown sub-
stances. If you have a fax, just
fax your letter right to the legis-
lator, this will save time and the
phrase "time is of the essence"
will certainly apply.

Heed JFK's

words in time
Editor:
"Since this country was
founded, each generation of
Americans has been summoned
to give testimony to its national
loyalty. The graves of young
Americans who answered the
call to service surround the
globe.
"Now the trumpet summons
us again not as a call to bear
arms, though arms we need -
not as a call to battle, though
embattled we are but rather
a call to bear the burden of a
long twilight struggle, year in
and year out, rejoicing in hope,
patient in tribulation a strug-
gle against the common ene-
mies of man: tyranny, poverty
disease and war itself. I do not
shrink from this responsibility.
I welcome it.",
These are the very words of
John F. Kennedy in his inaugu-
ral address on Jan. 20, 1961. He
was referring to the Cold War,
which did indeed go on for
years. Yet, in the end, America
was victorious.
Today, terrorism is a most
serious threat we all face. It,
too, will be a long struggle.
But, there are some who would
shrink from this responsibility.
Perhaps those whose voices
ring the loudest in favor of
withdrawal from this conflict
ought to re-read the words of a
man who feared little, dared
much and was truly a hero.

Are others

being hidden?
Editor:
As the drama plays out in
Washington, D.C., over former
Congressman Mark Foley I
notice that there seems to be no
interest in finding any other
members of Congress or staff
aides, who have or may still be
engaged in similar predatory
conduct.
From what I read, the
Congressional pages knew for
years to avoid Mr. Foley's
advances. Might there be an
attempt to limit the scope of the
damage and allow some people
to continue their behavior?

Maybe Congress is taking a
page out of the unofficial
behavior manual for the
Highlands County Courthouse,
where for years it was the'
accepted practice for the older
staff to prey upon the younger
women, if the women wanted
to keep their jobs.
As you may know not so
long ago a computer disk was
delivered to the other newspa-
per with details of this behavior
and it was not only not fol-
lowed up on, it was lost or.
destroyed. Fortunately, paper
copies still exist and should the
proper authorities want copies
they are available.
Maybe we can have some
social behavioral change and it
doesn't have to be at glacial
rates.

Be proud of all

of our heroes
Editor:
An open letter to the family
of Polk County Sheriff's
Deputy Vernon "Matt"
Williams and his police dog
Diogi:
May the Lord walk with you
through this time as you got up
today and started on your way.
The same as you do each time,
have breakfast, some conversa-
tion, walk your K9 deputy and
kiss your family goodbye.
There was no way to know it
would be your last ...
The lives he took, the family
pulled apart with grief, the offi-
cers are all in shock of a man
who did not care. All that's left
"now is giving honor to those
who serve and put their life out
there to protect us. \We only
ask that through our prayers
and caring, we can ease some
of the pain. We are all here to
help each other.
But those who hate and have
no respect for the law and our
rights, they will pay for this at
Judgment Day. That seems far
away but if you believe in our
Lord, you know that it will


come to pass. Until we see our
loved ones, we must believe
they are our angels and will
watch over us until we are with
them once. again. No .more
tears, no more sorrow, no more
pain and joy and love will once
again rule our lives.
How hard it is to forgive. If
we are to be forgiven, we must
also forgive. It is not an easy
thing to do for someone with
no respect for life. We must for-
give them. We want to be able
to face our own judgment and
the Lord knows it's hard on us.
This has been a terrible
month for the families who
have lost their loved ones. We
must raise our hands to Heaven
and thank God for the time we
had with those we loved. Thank
God they're at peace with him
and waiting for us to rejoin
them in our mansion in the sky.
God be with you all and our
prayers are with you. I have
walked in your shoes and know
how hard it is to forgive. It took
me a long time but I too want to
be reunited with my loved
ones. I had to fight the feelings
of hate. I've put it in our
Heavenly Father's hands; I
pray you can.
Be proud of our heroes. They
gave their lives for the safety of
others and that makes me swell
with pride. The children and
adults who have lost their lives
over time each and every day,
it's so sad we have to live and
die like this.
To all the families who have
lost their loved ones to these
terrible people, innocent chil-
dren school shootings, drunk
drivers who have taken the
ones I loved and others who
have endured this pain we
have no way of understanding
why. I pray for all of us. ...
To those from all schools
where innocent children have
lost their lives, the Pennsylva-
nia Amish children who never
knew what crime was, we must
protect our gifts from God.
This is so uncalled for...
We thank you police, sher-
iffs, highway patrol, EMS, doc-


tors, nurses, news people that
inform us caregivers. Missing
children, bring them home, the
elderly who suffer. We love you
.all and want this-all to end, so
we can get back to our happy -
home life. Our service people
who lose their lives for us to
help us be safer.
The funeral was a show of
the dedication of each officer
and K9 officers. I know Matt's
family will miss him dearly. ...
the families of these officers
are heroes too as they live with
this every day and know what
can happen. They stand tall
next to their heroes.
All we can do is thank you
for allowing your loved ones to
do their job. ... We care. We say
thank you and send our prayers.
Our Heavenly Father takes
over now and he will watch
over each person's loss.
To the deputy who was hurt,
God be with you and yours and
may you go on. You are out
there for us. Without you all,
we would be in so much trou-
ble. All we can do is thank you
from our heart....

able Evil always gets
the the limelight
sub-
n of Editor:
t of I just knew there was going
to be a big deal made out of that
ally (Lakeland) cop killer being
blic shot 68 times. The evil losers
am- always seem to get the lime-
om- light of mistreatment no matter
aire their deeds.
sub- Well I would like to put this
take whole situation' in perspective
the of real life. The cop killer used
that the element of hidden surprise
as to take down the deputy and his
the dog. He knew the deputy: was
nty, not aware he was armed and
and ready to kill, which gave him a
hey second element of surprise.
ages And finally we all know police
officers, are trained to appre-
ame hend and bring to justice first
for :and use deadly force only when
the necessary. These circumstances
dety added up to a suicide mission
cast for our unwitting deputy.
h it Also the killer, according to
TV all accounts, did not kill with
'an- his first volley of rounds. No,
)rice he executed the deputy with
ing. two head shots, but what for?


Why not run and leave a
wounded deputy? He wanted
his pistol and ammo. This
behavior is very familiar to
some who know combat and
war-like tactics for survival.
Now consider the armed
deputies moving into this dense
jungle-like area searching for
the killer. Yes, they are in great
numbers because they don't
want to miss an area. They are
heavily armed with automatic
assault rifles because if they
have a fire-fight, it will require
many penetrating rounds to kill
someone deep in the under
brush, very much like the jun-
gles of Vietnam.
The killer who is hiding deep
in the brush still has two ele-
ments in his favor. He can use
surprise as he lays in wait and
again he knows these law
enforcement officers cannot
shoot on sight. They must try to
apprehend first.
This mission almost sounds
suicidal for maybe at least one
deputy.
Yes, when they find this guy
he's going to lose big time in a
gun fight. But with this jungle-
type terrain it is very possible'
for a determined killer to get
off the first shot and easily
make it a head shot.
Soldiers in the jungles of
Vietnam had a better chance
thin these guys When looking
for the enemy. They didn't have
to say 'do you want to give up
before we .shoot.' In combat,
this kind of situation with pos-
sible known enemy. positions is
handled by an air :strike'or
artillery anLd then shoot any-
thing that moves.
So when we look at what
happened we, should think of
the bravery 'of these deputies.
The\ are just like us with fami-
lies and the desire to continue
to live. They and all services
that protect the public have a
job description that may result


in death at anytime. We should
be proud and grateful for their,
service.
In regards to the media atten-
tion about this poor guy getting
shot 68 times may have an
upside. It may deter a few crim-
inals from shooting at law
enforcement officers, because
they don't want to become
Swiss cheese also.

Foley's case is

a big deal

Editor:
I couldn't believe it when I
read the letter by Dean
Johnson, "What's the big
deal?" (News-Sun, Oct. 4)
referring to the actions of
Republican ex-Congressman
Mark Foley, who was sending
sexually implicit -instant mes-
sages to teenage boys, some as
young as 16, they were former
pages .in Congress, since at
least 1997. Ironically, Folty
was the co-chairman of the
"Congressional Committee for
Missing and Exploited
Children." The fox guarding
the hen-house.
Mr. Johnson is the
spokesman for the local
Republican party, as such he,
and they, are condoning the
reprehensible actions of Foley,
. The Republicans started the
impeachment process for a
Democratic president, married,
who had, I admit, a stupid affair
with an adult woman. But it's
"no big deal" for Foley to send
dirty letters to young boys
because he's a Republican. I
wonder what their reaction
would have been if it was one
of their teenage sons that had
been the recipient of those mes-
sages, would they say "what's
the big deal"?
What ever happened to their


mantra of "Family Values" and.
their anti-gay agenda?
Mr. Johnson did have one
sentence correct when he wrote
"Get others to lie for him."
Which is exactly what the other
Republican members of
'Congress were doing for Foley!
Rep. Tom. Reynolds (R-New
york) reiterated his assertion.
that he told House Speaker
Dennis, Hastert (R-Illinois)
about Foley's behavior in the
spring of this year.
Remember this is the GOP
better known as the "Grand Old
Prevaricators."
In their latest, show of arro-
gance the Republicans are try-
ing to blame the Democrats for
Foley's actions. ... '

Comments in

book offensive
Editor:
Ahmed Deedat (deceased) in
his book, "Christ In Islam,"
lists on page 7 some references
to Jesus in the Quran: Jesus, a
righteous prophet (vi. 85); not
crucified (iv. 1.57); not God (v.
19, 75); not son of God (ix. 30);
no more than apostle (iv. 171;
v. 78). In another of his books,
"Crucifixion or Cruci-fiction,";
chapter 14 is titled, "Jesus Not
Resurrected." The theme of this
whole book is that Jesus did not
die on the cross and, therefore,
was not resurrected from the
dead.
As a Christian, Ahmed
Deedat's statements and those
of the Quran, are highly offen-
sive to me., So what do I do?
Tear 'up the Quran? Burn in
.effigy Ahmed Deedat? Wish
the death of Muslims? Deface
a picture of Muhammed?
Protest with posters "Death to
Islam"? No, of course not, for
what would this accomplish?


Death would send precious
souls into eternity without the
glorious gospel of Christ.
Apparently, some followers of
Muhammad have very little
hope in their message to con-
vert so they have to kill the
"enemy."
Equally offensive to me are
those who claim to believe in
Jesus yet compromise the Truth
of the gospel and facts of histo-
ry. If Islam does not like the
facts of their history, then they
need to change the way they
are writing history now. A tree

College works with high schools to help students transition


SFCC hosts

guidance workshop
AVON PARK -It's gettin-g
harder to remember the days
when there was a clear division
between public high schools
and colleges --even communi-
ty colleges.
What's clear today is there's
a distinctive blur between
kindergarten through 12th
grade and post-secondary edu-
cation, especially at South
Florida Community College.
And that's OK with the
dozens of Highlands,, Hardee
and DeSoto county high. school
and middle school guidance
staff meeting for last week's s
annual Guidance Workshop
hosted by South Florida
Community, College. Any and
all bridges the two camps build
now can only help the same
pool of students both groups are
trying to serve.
It's tough to keep up with all
the changes affecting education
and the impacts they are mak-
ing on the. career choices of
high school students, admits,
Hardee High School Guidance
Counselor Ron Beldin, who's
attended several of S FCC's
guidance workshops.
"We need to, take this time
out and share" new s of the con-
stant developments, Beldin said
during a break in the 14th annu-
al event, held recently. "We're.
in a partnership. The workshop
creates a two-way street for,
both .of us. It's: definitely the
right thing to do for both of us.
It's for thb benefit of the stu-
dents.'
For small rural counties like
.those SFCC serves, new state
mandates, increasingly narrow
the choices of curricula because
small high schools have such
limited resources, Beldin
added. Learning, about- the
growing number of SFCC pro-
grams gives everyone new
options to apply.
Dr. Rodney Hollinger, coor-
dinator of student ser ices.
Highlands County School
Board. agrees. "Our. counselors
get so tied up with the day-to-
day nuts and bolts at the K- 12
level; Sometimes we forget
about .what's accessible in our
own backyard." The daylong
workshop, reviewing the range
of programs SFCC offers high
school students "is a reminder"
that the high schools are not on
their own.
The college represents ,"a
strong economic engine" for the
three counties SFCC serves,
said Dr. Lea'ia Revell, vice
president of educational and
student services. The close col-
laboration between it and the
region's high schools ensures
college programs respond and
act quickly to the area's busi-
ness needs, particularly in terms
of technical instruction, and the
integration of high school stu-
dents and graduates into SFCC
programs.
Dr. Michael McLeod, dean of
adult and community educa-
tion', .outlined the number of
free tutoring services, many of
them grant-funded, available
not just to high school students
and its graduates. Many of them
benefit the entire family. As
examples, he pointed out. the
value of family literacy, the 93
percent success rate for, SFCC's
General Equivalency
Development for young par-
ents, and English as a Second
Language for students and their


families. The college also offers.
preparation classes for college
entrance exams.
New, programs are being
added all the time, pointed out
Kevin Brown, dean of applied
science and. technologies.' The
college's dual-enrollment
remains popular because ,it
i1llo s high school students to
complete *-for free many
college prerequisites., before
becomin- full-time simdents at
SFCC. ,where they can then
concentrate on their technical
courses .


SBrown said .the college's,
automotive certificate program
is being developed into a two-
year' associate'ss degree pro-
gram, and a, short-term con-
struction skills program is.being
developed, as well' as short cus-
tomer service AIlls p'ro:grani.
The Taser training benefiting
local police and corrections
programs is another example of
specialized training. The cQl-
lege is proi idiin i such tr:iifinF.
Brown, said. "Because people
asked for it." .
SFCC's standards for techiii-"


cal traininL remain demanding,
.Brown continued'. "These are
the jobs that offer good salaries
and benefits. They need to be
demanding it our graduates are
g6ing to survive in the world'"
of work. .
Technological advances are
being applied to academic
classes, too, said Dr. David'
Sco,:ers, dean of arts and sci-
ences.'. More classrooms are

Internet.' and instructors are

"'Studies are showing that
technical-based instruction
offers students a better educa-
tion than traditional face-to-
face lectures," Sconyers said.
The partnership SFCC enjoys
with its regional high schools
i elies on, a continual process,
noted Laura White. associate
dean of enrollment services and
tuni\ersit3 relations. .The part-
nership ensures that high school
students understand the choices
they now have and that SFCC
remains visible :at the high_

SEBRING The Highlands County
Community Coalition on Substance Abuse had
itsannual reception luncheon at Florida Hospital
Heartland Medical Center.
About a dozen key board members keep the
coalition on track to comply with numerous state
and federal regulations governing its operation.
Other members of civic and governmental
organizations were recognized for their signifi-
cant contributions to the cause of substance abuse
prevention among the. youth of Highlands
County. Florida Heartland Hospital, The School
Board of Highlands County and the sheriff's
office are major contributors to the cause, plus 35.
other county organizations.
Dr. Rodney Hollinger, school board coordina-
tor of students services and keynote speaker, pro-
vided statistical data confirming the successful'
reduction of drug abuse, generally and among.
students more specifically. Hollinger also intro-
duced a new drug testing program which had to
survive legal and social analysis arid'then gained


life through donations from the area, Rotary
clubs. A random selection system was formulat-
ed, which includes athletes, student drivers on
campus and volunteers. This is a "lottery" stu-
dents can "win" more than once to be tested (any
day, any time). It was an .informative presenta-
tion, a significant step toward prevention of drug
abuse in the schools.
For every complicated issue, there is a simple
solution-that is wrong.
The Highlands County Mentor/Tutor Program
is calling for volunteers to aid the students ho
need to achieve grade level in their studies. Call
Dr. Laura Van Horn at 47 ?-5662, Kathleen Mills
Montgomery at 382-2134 or Gabriel Read at
453-2859 for key details. The seniors, especially,.
have the skills, knowledge and experience these
students need to establish a solid foundation for
learning.
Congratulations to the county students % ho
aced the Florida Comprehension Achieverrieni
Test in reading, writing and/or science.

There are several ways radiation can be administered to the body.
After evaluating your condition, our physician will recommend the
most appropriate type of radiation.

offers these services:
* IMRT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy)

25-16 and 29-27

"Brittany %1as on fire
tonight." Sebring coach
Vanessa Sinness said. "Hannah
and Whitne\ both play a heck
of a game."
Lake Placid bounced right
back from the tough loss in the
marathon first game. The Lady
Streaks jumped out to an 18-7


lead. Sebnng tried to rally and
Aspen Kuhn's three serve ice
points cut the lead to 24-15 but
, Sebring failed to return a Green
Dragon hit for the 25- 15 loss.

Sebring girls roll; boys squeak in


Lady Streaks finish

15 shots ahead of

field to win title
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sr, :.! Edu',-,r
SEBRING Unlike their male coun-
terparts the day before, the Sebring Lady
Blue Streaks didn't haxe to go through the
drama of %whether or not they would
advance to regionals on Tuesday.
The only question %\as %\here in the top
three the Streaks would finish. w which
turned out to be night where they %wanted to
be at the top.
Led by a solid 75 from Jessica \\illiams,
the Streaks put together their best IS-hole
team score of the season with a 332 to grab
a 15-shot %win oer Celebrauon to take the
Distinct 9-2A championship at Sebring
Golf Course.
Lakeland George Jenkins took third
place to grab the final spot in Tuesday's
regional at Windemere Country Club in
Orlando.
The Streaks' score %%as eight shot's better
than they shot in \%inning their di vision in
the Ha%%kins-Cruichfield Invitational last
month.
"Other than two back nines for two girls.
eight out of 10 ninesi were really, really
good." Sebring coach Wayne Stapleford
said. "I broke it down and on the front
nine, if it %was a nine-hole match, \e'd
have shot 159. which is awful, a% ful good
for girls. We still shot 173 on the back nine
with a 53."
Heather Brownell shot 38-42-SO for
her best 18-hole score and a sixth-place
finish and Julianne Lind w\as "solid all daN
long," according to Stapleford. on her % a\
to a 41-41-82 for her best score.
Camiel White carded 42-53-95 and
Kayla Dunn had 43-53-96 for the
Streaks.

Boys make it

to regional by

slim margin
By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING It was a pleas-
antly cool day at Sun 'N Lake
on Monday, but the Blue
Streaks were still sweating.
What should have been a no-
doubt trip to the regional tour-
nament turned into anything
but a sure thing as the District
9-2A tournament came to a
close. With three of the 11 team
scores in, Sebring had a 330
and was already in third place
- the final regional qualifying
spot behind Lakeland.
which had a 306+behind medal-
ist Logan Blondell's 2-under-
par 70, and Barrow with 324.
First, it was Lake Region
that put a scare into the Streaks.
only to come up one shot back
at 331. Then came the
Celebration team. which also
ended up just short with a 332,
bringing a huge sigh of relief
from the Blue Streaks.
"We were sweating bullets,
big time," Sebring coach John
Snyder said. "1 thought we'd be
in a fight for second. I predict-
ed Lakeland would be too
strong for the field, but I
thought we'd be in a battle with
Barnow for second, not worr -
ing about a photo fish for
third. That was shocking to
me.

SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
The Lady Blue Streaks have some new hardware for the trophy case after winning the district champi-
onship on Tuesday.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
finishing birdie-birdie-birdie and nearly holing
.out a chip shot for eagle on No. 18.
"On the 1.8th hole, her chip rolled and hit the
pin," Stapleford said. "If the pin would have been
out, it would have gone in. It was dead center.
Half of them fall, half of them don't. She'd have
been in a playoff for first place."
Lauren Benetti of Celebration won on the first
playoff hole against M.J. Audette of. George
Jenkins after both finished with 2-over-par 74s.
Stapleford said the Streaks will try- to play
Highlands Ridge North to get ready for the


regional tournament since the two courses, espe-
cially the greens, are very similar.
The real battle at regional will be for the sec-
ond state spot, Stapleford said, since Lake
Howell is a runaway favorite to win the overall
title'
"It's tough. You've got Lake Howell who shot
293 here in the Hawkins. They don't have just
four solid golfers, they have six or seven. For
somebody to beat them, they would really have to
have a train wreck.
"Then, it'S really up for grabs OIumpia's,
decent. Winter Park is decent and we're right
there "\ith them. If %%e can elinunate that ibadi
back nine and pull something around 320. 1 think
\\e'\e got a decent shot "


BOYS

having only one player break 80
were not what coach Snyder
had in mind when he decided to
host the district tournament on
Deer Run.
His son, Aaron, the No. 4
player, led the team with a 78,.
followed by Cody Watt with 82,
Roben Griffin and Duncan
Bralts at 85 and- Zach Foster
with 86.
"I think the wind played
some havoc based on the scores
that were posted, both from
Bartow and ourselves," coach
Snyder 'aid. "When you have
three out. of five players wvho'
pretty much consistently shoot
80. or lower shoot in the mid-
80s, that's pretty tough."
Having is son's round be the
key to getting to regional made
for one proud coach and father,.
however.
"Being a coach and a father
is a difficult position. There's
no doubt I'm proud of Aaron,"
coach Snyder said. "He was the
fourth lowest score of the day.
I'm happy for him going out
and helping the team."
To say the Streaks will have
to play better on Tuesday in the
regional tournament at
Windemere Country Club in
Orlando is an understatement.
In fact, coach Snyder, who
thanked Sun 'N Lake for host-
ing the Streaks this season, said
he knows the .odds of the
Streaks. advancing as a team are
long.
"Bartow and Lakeland will
be there there's our first hur-
dle and Olympia is favored
to win the state championship
and they're in our region," he
said. "We go from three out of
11 (teams) to two out of nine
(advancing)." '
Instead, coach Snyder will
tell his players to focus on their
own games and not worry about

sports, that would be a recipe
for disaster, but it works in golf.
"Individually, there's always
those two spots available," he
said. "You hate to say 'don't

all out for themselves. I'm hop -

MARCUS WILKINS/News-Sun
The amateur team celebrates with the Highlands County Ryder Cup after beating the pros by a point on Sunday at Highlands Ridge North.


Take one-point win to improve to 9-2-1 overall


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK It seemed
everyone wearing red was smil-
ing a bit wider than the folks in
purple after the amateurs beat
the professionals in the
Highlands County Ryder Cup, at
Highlands Ridge North on
Sunday by a score of 14/2-13'/2.
Employing the same format
as the professional Ryder Cup,
the two-day, 54-hole competi-
tion featured several of the
area's best amateur golfers ver-
sus some of the local pros.
The pros were looking to
repeat as champions .after last
year's 13'A.10'/2 win but it was
the amateurs who added to their
overall ininngn margin of 9-2-
1.


The pro team went -into the
last day of the competition
needing 14, points to tie and
retain the cup, but the amateurs
were a determined bunch.
"I think the competition was
a little stiffer this year," amateur
Mike Browning said.
"Highlands Ridge did a great
job of getting the course ready.
The course played out good, the
competition was good and the
professionalism was great."
, Saturday morning was the
four-ball match segment, in
;which the amateurs took a 3'-
2'_ lead. They increased their
lead to 7'/2-4/2 in the afternoon in
the alternate shot matches.
The pros flexed their muscle
in the singles matches, taking
six of the 13, but couldn't get to


14 for the tie to retain the title.
Captain Mike Wells was
wearing a grin as the day's last
golfers began to trickle into,the
clubhouse.'
"I was designated the captain
of the amateur team because of
my play in last fall's Highlands
County amateur," said Wells.
"Beyond that, I've never done
anything of this sort before and
we just, kind of winged it, but
every guy on the team, was very
willing to play when and where
I asked them to play and their
cooperation was just terrific.
The enthusiasm was at a very
high level and it was just very
enjoyable all-around." i
For the singles matches on
Sunday, Wells led the charge by
defeating Harder Hall pro John


Phillips 4 and 3 and Lake Placid
baseball coach Dan Coomes
was strong beating former PGA
Tour star Fred Hawkins 3 and 1.
Bagwell tournament champi-
on Steve Hall defeated Pete
DuPriest 2 and 1 and former
Sebring High School golfer
Cody Browhell beat John
Vickers 7 and 6.
The pros notched victories
when John Dean beat Vince
Liles 7 and 6, Andy Kesling
beat Gary Greenleaf 5 and 3
and Jason Beatty beat. Greg
Knowles 3 and 1.
"We're all kind of golf
junkies and this is just one little
experience on golf's way that
we can look back on %\ ith fond
memories," said Wells.

Quail workshop to be

held in Lake Placid,


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The once-
common call of bobwhite quail
in southern pine forests is less,
prevalent than it once was in
many locations. In a few places,
the bobwhite's call is still com-
mon; in others, it can become
common again with skilled
management.
That will be the focus of a
quail management workshop in
Lake Placid on friday, Oct. 20,
co-sponsored by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) 'and
Archbold Biological Station.
The workshop at the
Archbold facility will run from
8:30' a.m. to 3 p.m. and all
landowners and land managers
are invited.
The workshop will feature
presentations by quail experts
from Tall Timbers Research
Station, The Nature.
Conservancy, Archbold


Biological Station and the
FWC. The National Wild
Turkey Federation is also a
partner in the workshop.
Topics will include bobwhite
basics and the challenges,
obstacles and options for recov-
ery.
Presenters also will offer,
information on how and where
to get technical assistance from
both private and public conser-
Vation organizations.
Pre-registration is required
by Friday. The nominal regis-
tration fee is $6 and includes
lunch.
To pre-register and get direc-
tions to the quail workshop, call
Lee Taylor at (863) 648-3200.

management and other wildlife
related programs, visit
