A few weeks costs $28,000


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING Scenic Highway will
cost $28.000 more %when resurfacing
begins next week.
Better Road. had a "non-binding"
contract with Highlands County for
fiscal %ear 2005-2'006 that left the
gaTern meant with no recourse when
the contractor walked away citing
high fuel costs and more-lucrati\e
state jobs.
"They just left us for state work."
Highlands County Road and Bridge
Superintendent Bruce Van Jaarsveld
said Wednesday,. explaining that
Better Roads" bids historically come
in significantly\ lower than its compe-
i uion. "Where we're at right now is a
contractor \\ ho alked off the job and
is the low% bidder again."
Last ear's contract with Better
Roads \was $64.25 per ton of recycled
asphalt. The contract this year is for
S,83 per ton. \ ith the next closest bid-
der coming in at $110 per ton. Lane
Construction. \\ho is doing the U.S.
27 cum-lane extensions in Highlands
Count\ for Florida Department of
Transportation. submitted a bid of
S142 per ton.
"It makes a good road." Van
Jaars,,eld said of the 20 percent reces-
, cled asphalt, explaining that virgin


asphalt is too expensive to use an3\-
more and concrete is not an option at
SJ 00 per y.ard.
Scenic High\way. which \\as fully-
rebuilt, has been ready for resurfacing
for two to three weeks.
Allegedly walking off the job
toward the end of th,' isc ;l year and
waiting a few %weeks. Better Roads
left the county. nith twro projects
hanging in the balance, and no\w is
charging 29 percent more for the
same jobs.
The new contract, however, allows
*Better Roads to negotiate the rate
should oil prices increase more than 5
percent at the port. Van Jaars\eld said.
%which should gixe the company
incentive to not %walk away again.
Better Roads first bid for the
Highlands County contract around
1973. Joe Turner. the company's pres-
ident. said Wednesdas.
It has been awarded the contract
"on and off" through the years.
"O\er the last four to five months.
liquid asphalt cement increased about
75 percent," he said. "That's a huge
impact on our business. Obvtously,
%we're not looking to go out and do
projects out of our ow\n pocket."
Turner said the company agrees to
provide a specified amount of asphalt

Bookstore \will begin a weeklong sale Monday running through
Saturday Oct. 21.
Sale tables \\ill be set up on the sidewalk. spilling out from the
store at 100 N Museum Ave.. during the store's regular hours
"It's worth a stop," Lucy Derkman said. She is the president
of the Friends of the Avon Park Library. and is one of the man\
volunteerss working the sale.
The Friends need help to make room for newer books.
One hundred percent of \\hat the Friends collect goes back to
the library. either in the form of extra programs, sern ice up-
grades, or getting the word out. Derkman said. For example the
Friends had raised $25.000 toward the recent renovations, dedi-
cating several years' work to the goal. More recently it had a
chamber mixer at the library\ to show off those renovations.
The library trusts the Fnends, Derkman added. That is one
reason the library releases so many quality discards to the book-
store to sell, and why there will be all kinds of books, on all
kinds of subjects, available at the sale.

Artist Amy Grant


headlines gala

By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun ,
SEBRING The Florida Hospital
Foundation has brought in big musical names
in the past to its annual gala and this year tops
them all %when Grammy Award-w% inning artist
Amy Grant x\ill be performing Tuesday, Nov.
7, in South Florida Comnmunity College audi-
torium.
Grant has sold more than 25 million
albums during her nearly 30-year career. She
received a star on the Hollywood, Walk of
Fame in September, making her the first artist
with a background in contemporary Christian
music to receive the honor. Grant has had six
Billboard No. 1 hits, four Top 5 hits, and two
songs in the Top 10.
During the concert, Grant will be backed
by a 45-person symphony orchestra. Having
the orchestra backing her up is a type of per-
formance she loves.
"I'm amazed at the capabilities of all those
people to create an amazing musical land-
scape," she said during a media teleconfer-
ence Thursday. The orchestra "breathes new
life into the music."
Grant and her husband.
country music superstar
Vince Gill, are in their
se,,enth Near of marriage.
She said thee survived
"any bumps in the road"
in their marriage because
both understand the ups
and do%% ns of the music
lifestle.ANT
Grant has four children GRANT
\%ith Gill. and one step-
daughter. With both parents on the road. the
kids' experience growing up %\as decidedly
different from most.
Because of all the time the kids spent tour-
ing. these all "learned to walk on a bus. and
half of them were potty-trained on a bus."
Grant said. "That life is so familiar to them."
Grant still cherishes her time \with her kids.
\ which is part of the reason %why she now only-
tours one week a month. During the %week
she'll perform three to five shows. which
gives her a chance to spend the majority of
her ttme at home in Nashville. She doesn't
think she'll ever be going on a full-fledged
tour again.
Spending time \with her children is still
important to Grant, so much so that she %will
be lea\ ing Highlands County at the crack of
da\\ n the morning after her concert. Why? So
she can fl\ back to Nashville to make corn-
husk dolls w ith her youngest daughter.
She say s her children do have musical tal-
ent. although sometimes they're reluctant to
showcase it. Grant's 16-year-old daughter
,,anted to sho\% her musical ability to her
mother. Hoove\er. she wouldn't let her mom
look at her while she sang.
Despite not being able to watch her. the
proud mother \\as %ery impressed with what
she heard. "I w\as so moved." Grant said. "Her
voice is beautiful."
Besides her tour schedule. Grant is current-
ly working on a new studio album in

SEBRING Every year the
Highlands County Landfill
burns the equivalent of $1.6
million in diesel fuel.
Based on $2.60 per gallon
retail, the figure was one of sev-
eral numbers provided Tuesday
to the Highlands County Board
of County Commissioners dut-
*ing a presentation about ways to
convert landfill gas into rev-
. enue.
Decomposing organic matter
in solid waste at the Arbuckle '.
Creek Road landfill produces,
the gas., which is mostly,
methane and, carbon dioxide
w ith trace elements of oxygen
and up to 10 percent nitrogen
The methane -- w which is the
same as methane in natural gas
-is burned off at the landfill, a
practice that adheres to
Environmental Protection
Agency guidelines but sends
,potential income up in smoke.
Well, not smoke actually.
Methane burns clean and clear.
heat waves at the top of a stack
are the only e% idence.
An accelerated decomposi-
tion process at'the county land-
fill extends the facility 's life
and produces increased levels
of methane a renewable
resource that can produce elec-
tricity, fuel vehicles, make
asphalt or be used in any of se\ -
eral other innoeatm\e methods.
"Where do \ou %\ant to go
from here is- our question to
you," Solid Waste director Ken
Wheeler told .the ,board after
ou[itII]mng the three approaches.


24,000 miles per year at three
miles per gallon), the vehicles
would pay for their conversion
in 2 1/2 years. At $1 per gallon,
that time would be stretched out
to five years.
During fiscal year 2004-
2005, county vehicles con-
sumed 44(0,000 gallons of.
diesel and 319.000 gallons of
"gasoline, according to data pro-
vided by Wheeler.
Miller esumated next year
the county land fill will produce
enough methane to account for
54 percent of the county's fuel
consumption.
Having re-hired a contractor
that the count) claimed put
state projects -ahead of local
work. ovr nng and operating an
asphalt plant that would utilize
burning methane to dr\ the
aggregate seemed to be the
favored method., with Wheeler
pro% iding a detailed handout.
With total capital costs esti-
mated at $4 million. Wheeler
predicted a $1.7 million annual
sat ings w ith an asphalt plant he
said \would show a return on
in estment in 2 1/2 \ears.


The handout delineates asso-
ciated expenses of building and
operating a plant from operator
salaries to transportation esti-
mnates depending on location.
Suggested sites included the,
landfill -and George Boulevard,
both already owned by the
county.
"The county has a hole-in its,.
pocket," commissioner C. Guy
Maxcy said of the current prac- -
Lice of burning methane. '
He commended Wheeler for
taking a pro-active approach to,
find ways to save taxpayers'
money -. ,
Bullard agreed, calling it
"thinking outside the box." and'
said the savings (which are
based on current data) "will
only gro'% over time."'
Also. the amount of methane
produced \\ill increase as the
. county grows.
"It's a \mn-\in situation just
to be able to produce our o% wn
asphalt and pa\e our roads,"
commissioner Edgar Stokes
said. questioning the legality of

discussion: bioke out between'
Jeff Williams and Jean Jordan
at, the Planning and- Zoning,
*Board meeting Tuesday ni2ht
At issue was the subject of
Minimum lot sizes for the dif-
ferent residential classifica-
tions..
Williams presented reworked
figures from those presented at
the prior board meeting. By
making the lots slihtil\ smaller.
Williams said. developers could
get more units onto an acre.
SFor, example, by rerthnoing
eight feet of depth, from .140
feet to 132 feet, in the RI AA

"category, illiamns said,, a
developer could fit one mote
unit. for a total of three onto an
acre. instead of 2
But Jordan pointed out that
the proposed house sizes. esti-
mated to-be betweeri 1.000 and
2,0lf square feet, are out-of-
date and too small.
Typical homes bein2 built
oda\, she said, averaged
between 3,000 and 5.000
,. square feet. That meant many
houses would eat up" the entire;
lot, leaving 6nly the minimum
setbacks, seven and a half feet,
between buildings.


People may be used to living
close together in Bromard or
NMiami-Dade. Jordan said, but
in Highlands County the\
expect elbov\ room. and sp.cc
for a s\\ imuning pool or to park
a recreational vehicle.
The audience of one, Darren
Kopta. of Kopta Construction,
admitted to being torn over the
issue. .
On one hand he liked the idea
of larger lot sizes, but as a
-builder understood the desire to
fit another unit per acre.
He did agree with Jordan that
houses are being built much
larger these dats. The smallest
house he is working on is more
than 6,000 square feet.
'Uthiniatel\. Kopta said, the
county needs to have a arieti
of lot sizes, and housing types.
to suit ew er one.

Crist promotes free wireless


AMBER alerts program in state


Plenty to celebrate

-U .,., .,_ .


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE -
Attorney General Charlie Crist
announced Thursday that his
office is helping bring free
Wireless AMBER Alerts to
more Floridians, making it eas-
ier for citizens to assist in
efforts to locate abducted chil-
dren. Crist said the Attorney
General's Web site will now
feature a direct link to sign up
for the free wireless service, in
a move designed to raise public
awareness of the Wireless
AMBER Alerts initiative and
encourage Floridians to sub-
scribe to the service.
The Attorney General's
Office is joining with The
Wireless Foundation, the
National Center for Missing &
Exploited Children and the U.S.
Department of Justice to pro-
mote the Wireless AMBER
Alerts initiative. The AMBER
Alert program was created in
1997 when Dallas-Fort Worth
broadcasters teamed up with
local law enforcement to devel-
op an early warning system to
find abducted children. The
program has grown so that now


90 percent of Americans with
wireless devices may receive
localized AMBER Alerts as
free text messages, instantly
raising awareness of recent
child abductions and often pro-
ducing valuable information on
the child's whereabouts.
"Every minute a child is
missing is a minute too long,"
Crist said. "We must take every
action possible to help ensure
that children are safely returned
to their loved ones as quickly as
possible. This program saves
lives."
AMBER stands for
"America's Missing: Broadcast
Emergency Response" and was
also named after Amber
Hagerman, the Texas girl whose
abduction and murder led to
creation of the Alert system.
"It is our hope that by enlist-
ing the more than 13 million
Florida wireless /subscribers in
the Wireless. AMBER Alerts
Initiative, we can greatly
increase the likelihood of
recovering an abducted child
during this critical time period,"
said Steve Largent, president
and chief executive officer of


CTIA-The Wireless Associa-
tion and president of The
Wireless Foundation. "Wireless
technology has given us the
ability to become the guardian
angels of our communities, and.
I urge Florida residents every-
where to sign up today."
"We can all help keep chil-
dren safer by participating in
the free .Wireless AMBER
Alerts program," added Ernie
Allen, :NCMEC president and'
CEO. "To date, more than 300
children have been successfully
recovered as a direct result of
an AMBER Alert, and we hope
to bring even more children
home with the help of Florida's
citizens."
Subscribers can sign up for
free text message alerts through
the Attorney General's home
page at www.myfloridalegal.
corn or through the Wireless
AMBER Alerts home page at
www.wirelessamberalerts.org.
Crist encouraged Floridians,
to access the site and subscribe
to the program in an effort to
continue keeping Florida's chil-
dren safe.

planning and zoning board does
not have approval authority
over plats, the board simplified
the recording of "the final plat,
now requiring only the signa-
tures of the mayor and the city
clerk.
The other change came about
as a result of a landscaping vari-
ance.
Prior to Tuesday night, regu-
lations required businesses to
build a concrete wall, with a
planted buffer yard, .between
their commercial property and


next door residential property..
After some discussion, dur-.
ing which the issue of eye sore
businesses, like junk yards, was
raised, the board voted to
.change regulations. Businesses
may now choose to create either
a wall or a foliage buffer,
including hedges, but does not
have to do both.
In the event residential own-
ers have difficulty with cut-
through traffic, however, they
may request a green vinyl barri-

Florida Division of Forestry launches new initiative


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE -
Commissioner of the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Charles H.
Bronson announced-the launch
of the Florida Division of
Forestry's, new public aware-
ness initiative: Your Forest.
Managed. This initiative teams
landowners across the state
with their county forester to
ensure the future health of
Florida's forests. This is the
most comprehensive outreach
in the Division's 79 year history
and will significantly influence
the shaping.of Florida's private-
ly owned forests for decades to
come.
With Florida's population
expected to reach more than 18
million by 2020, preparing our
privately owned forest lands to
accommodate an upcoming
record growth rate is at the core
of the initiative. Currently 'the
state loses 1,200 acres per week
with land use expected to grow
by 40 percent during this time.
Presenting further need for the
initiative, large acreages of land
formerly owned by one individ-
ual are being broken up into
smaller parcels and sold to mul-
tiple owners. This changing of
hands is introducing new forest
land owners who may not have
the information necessary to
properly manage their property.
The increase in number and
variety of' landowners ,has
required foresters to develop
innovative ways to communi-
cate with a changing and
diverse group of people--the
overall effort: to promote-
healthy land management.
Your Forest. Managed. is
Designed to help Florida's coun-
ty foresters connect with the,
landowners in the districts they-,
serve. The centerpiece of the
campaign has' been cleverly
named "OAK," which stands
fori Outreach Action Kit. OAK
consists of a comprehensive
landowners manual, brochures,
promotion al items, displays and:
an interactive Web site, all of
whichh are available in both'
English and Spani;.h These
tools are expected to help forest
_ .landowners make sound deci-
sions when it. comes to their
propertN. Secondary clmpo-
nents include gras'.-roots, public.

Fire Prevention
Week is here
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING National Fire
Prevention Week is thirogh
.Oct. 14, so there is no better
time than now to educate
homeowners and their children
on fire safety. .
According to the U.S.
Consumer Product S.ifet\
Commission, home electrical
fires cause more. than 500
deaths and 5,000 injuries each
year.
"National Fire Prevention
Week creates the perfect oppor-
tunity to spot possible fire risks
inside your home," said Bob
Hodge .of the Mr. Electric of
Central, Florida franchise.
"Education and awareness help
avert electrical hazards, so it's
important to keep electrical
safety in mind throughout the
entire year."

tising campaign is slated for
2007 that will support overall
awareness of the important role
foresters play.
"At the heart of this initiative
is a desire to assist Florida's
forest land owners by providing
sound counsel on how they can
best manage their land to meet
their individual needs,", said
Mike Long, DOF director.
"New landowners need to know
that the beautiful land they just
bought won't stay that way on
its own welcan help."
Forests cover almost half of


Florida's total land area more
than 16 million acres. Private
landowners own more than half
of that total land and claim over
half of Florida's raw timber
supply. As the state's top
agribusiness, the forests indus-
try has a total economic impact
of $16.5 billion. Impacts on
tourism and recreation claim
about six billion and exports
outside the sate represent 50
percent of total industry sales.
The Diyision of Forestry has
45' county foresters in 15 dis-
tricts whose job it is to help p'ri-


vate non-industrial landowners
with 10 acres or more develop
land management plans and
execute proper management
practices. To locate a forester in
Highlands County, visit
www.yourforestmanaged.com.
"The days of sitting on a
front porch with a landowner
discussing their 500 acres over
a glass of sweet tea is coming to
a close," said Mike Renwick,,
the Leon and Gadsden county
forester. "The 500 acres that
one person owned a few years
ago is now dozens of partial,


10 to 200 acres, all owned by
different individuals and that's
a little more sweet tea than we
can drink. Your forest.
Managed. gives us the tools we
need to communicate with a
larger group of people."
Florida's forests provide the
environment with clean air and
help reduce air pollution and
provide habitat for wildlife and
a diverse plant population. In
addition, forestlands are critical
to purifying our state's water
supply, providing a water filter-
ing system that affects the


drinking water of 90 percent of
Florida's population. Proper
forest land management is criti-
cal to maintaining this lifeline
to the state.
The Florida Division of
Forestry is committed to pro-
tecting Florida and its people
from the 'dangers of wildland
fire and manage the forest
resources through a stewardship
ethic to assure they are Javail-
able for' future generations.

tant initiative at www.your-

Highlands Regional adds state-of-the-art CT scanner


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center has
added a state-of-the-art multi-
slice computed tomography
scanner to its facility.
The new Brilliance CT scan-
ner features advanced technolo-
gy that produces split-second *
high quality images, permitting
doctors to see more anatomical


detail in a fraction of the time
needed for the other tests.
The hospital purchased the
Philips 16 Slice Brilliance Pro
CT Scanner to offer sub-mil-
limeter thin slice images that
provide extremely fine detail to
help physicians identify pathol-
ogy not visible with conven-
tional CT units.
"This new CT scanner is an


example of Highlands Regional
Medical Center's commitment
to provide the best that technol-
ogy has to offer to the commu-
nities we serve," HRMC's
Chief Executive Officer Robert
Mahaffey said. "Having this
kind of advanced technology
right here improves the quality
of care patients can receive in
their own community."


The 16-slice CT scanner
works.much like traditional CT
scanning machines, but with
improved speed and image
quality. With the 16-slice CT
Scanner, procedures that used
to take 10 minutes or more to
perform, now take about 60 sec-
onds. The ultra fast scanning is
especially beneficial in trauma
situations and in treating criti-
cally ill patients. The new scan-
ner takes 16 pictures, or slices,
of the body per revolution, up to
four times the number taken by
other scanners.
The high number of "slices"
results in detail so fine that
technologists can' now produce
' images of the body that show
detail such as wrinkles in a
patient's skin. All this takes
place in multicolored 3-D
images.


Patients needing a CT scan
will find that Highlands
Regional's new scanner offers a
much more pleasant experi-'
ence. With much faster scan
times patients will usually be
asked to carry out one brief
breath hold during each scan.
"Older patients and those
with breathing difficulties or
other health impairments will
really appreciate the shorter
exam times," Kathleen Border,
director of marketing and pub-
lic relations, said. "We'll be
able to. complete the appoint-
ment much faster, and their doc-
tors will be able to access
detailed, definitive results."
With this new CT scanner,
HRMC radiologists will be able
to more effectively detect a
range of life threatening illness-
es, including heart disease, can-
cer, stroke and lung, disease.


The possibility of discovering
diseases in an early stage when
a wider array of effective treat-
ment options may be available
will help physicians make an
accurate diagnosis, and recom-
mend the most appropriate
treatment for their patients.
All CT scanners use X-rays,
however the new Brilliance
scanner uses a significantly
lower amount of X-ray energy
than many of the other compa-
rable CT systems on the market.
"It's state-of-the-art technol-
ogy in CT scanning," said
Spencer Thomas, chief operat-
ing officer at HRMC. "The
images are sharper and the
information it can provide for
physicians is just amazing."
For more information or to
schedule an appointment, call
385-6101. '

"The first stage of the project
is recording basic song ideas,"
Graflt said. "Being a mom, life
is just busy." -
Grant just released a new CD
and DVD combination of a life
performance in Fort Worth,
Texas. This project was signifi-
.cant for Grant because Fort
Worth was the site of the first
paid live performance in her
career, back in 1978.
"I remember that a lot of peo-
'ple were there and 'I was
shocked that that many people

.sang the 11 songs on her first
record. but felt guilty that she
didn't sing more. "I thought 'oh,

during conversation,:
"It seems to me that it would
be an excellent fit," Bullard
said, noting that the landfill is a
good location for a plant, the
fuel is readily available and
there's at least one end user, the
county. "We're saving millions
of dollars (in conserving land-
fill space through accelerated
decomposition) and you're tak-
ing a by-product of that savings
and trying to find a way to save
more."
In an interview with the

Grant says her new album is
meant "for people that enjoy
live shows. They're not looking
for perfection."
The project is her first live
album in 25 years.
Grant said the recording
industry is "totally different"
than it was when she started
back in 1977.
"It was a time when ugly
people could sing. beautiful
songs, as my friend Chet Atkins
used to say," Grant said. Now
the music industry has become
much more visual with the
advent of television channels
such as MTV and VH1.
The Internet also has -had a
major impact .on the industry.
"Now, anyone who likes music

Grant said.

the county could produce it for
about $57 per ton (which 'in

$1.7 million savings annually.
But just as important, the
county wouldn't have to rely on
Better Roads or other contrac-
tors to 'put the finishing touch
on road construction. Van
Jaars\eld said.

T) picall\ books are marked

'Don Brusha, Avon Park's
librarian, said.
The most common reason a

instead.
The 'library does withdraw
duplicate copies of books that
were once in heavy demand,
needing multiple copies, but
now are not.
Books that have new editions
also are pulled from the collec-

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


From the editor


I've explained before that I
get mail from time to time that I
can't necessarily use, most fre-
quently it is copies of stories
from other publications that
someone is wanting reprinted.'
Copyright laws prohibit me
from being able to do so.
But, what I can do is tell you
about some of those things.
One of the notices I recently
received was from a Sebring
woman who asked that I not
printher name. She shares this:
"A car company can move its
factories to Mexico and claim
it's a free market.
"A toy company can out-
source to a Chinese subcontrac-
tor and claim it's free market.
"A major bank can incorpo-
rate in Bermuda to avoid taxes
and claim it's a free-market.
"We can buy
computers/printers from
American companies made in
Mexico.
"We can buy shirts made' in'
Bangladesh.
"We can purchase almost
anything we want from 20 dif-


AT RANDOM

Romona Washington

ferent countries.
"But, heaven help the elderly
who dare to buy their prescrip-
tion drugs from a Canadian
pharmacy. That's called un-
American. And you think the
pharmaceutical companies
don't have a powerful lobby?
Think again."
Then I get a phone call from
Marlene Mroz in Lake Placid
who tells me the story of her
son, Robert Millwood of Cedar
Lake, Ind., who became the
unfortunate victim of a "lot-
tery" scam to hit the area.


's


stack of mail


According. to the Northwest
Indiana Times, the check
claimed to be from a legitimate
bank but the problem came.in
the fact he was to deposit the
check only after first sending
his own check or money order
to an out-of-country company.
The figure was attractive -
$4,970 in winnings, but he
needed to send $2,800 to cover
expenses and taxes. I wouldn't
be able to send in that kind of
money even if I was getting
nearly $5,000 back.
Anyway, Mr. Millwood did
the smart thing. He simply
called Cedar Lake police and
took,the letter back to the post
office. Then he told the story to
the newspaper, hoping to warn
others to not fall victim to the
scam.
There area lot of nut cases
out there who will do what they
can to steal from the hard work-
ing residents, the retired 'resi-
dents and those who are barely
getting by. Thank goodness
these scams are brought out in
the open by potential victims.


And finally I want to thank
Sharon Jones, who is now
working at South Florida
Community College and is ter-
ribly missed here in our news-
room. She shared with me that
the "dating rules" I- made my
own and shared last week origi-
nated with comedian Bill
Engvall.
I received a number of phone
calls and e-mails from readers
who enjoyed the column. I
agree with one caller who said
that holding hands and seeing a
romantic movie are things we
have all done in our teen years,
but if you've heard some of the
stories I've heard about what's
taking place in the movie the-
aters you'd understand the rule.
A little hand holding is OK,
but the romantic movies is
something I might let her go to
with a date once she hits 21.

Romona Washingtonr is execu-
tive director of the News-Sun.
She can be contacted by e-mail
at editor@newssun.com or by
phone at 385-6155, ext. 516.

Great places for

Voters thanked

for support
Editor:
I would like to express my
gratitude to every person who
voted for my husband, Tom
Macklin, in past elections as a
candidate for past council seats
and the mayor of Avon Park.
Tom gave up his position as
mayor of our home town to run
for lieutenant governor along
with Max Linn for governor of
the state of Florida.
It was not an easy decision,


o- ~

but we feel this is the best time
to bring a change in our state
government. Through a third
party, we hope to bring the gov-
ernment away from special
interest groups and back to the
people.
Most people in the Avon
Park community know how
hard Tom has worked for the
good of all. Once Tom made a
decision, he never relented that
decision for the good of just a
few -- no matter how much
they pressured him. If he
changed his mind about some-
thing, it had to be for the good
of all concerned.
This is a time when we need'
to come together and vote for
the interest of the people in our
community as well as our state
and country: We all have a say
in who is elected but only if
you vote on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Anyone who would like
more information about the
Max Linn/Tom Macklin cam-
paign can check out their stand
on issues at the campaign's
Web site at www.maxlinn.com.
If you would like to help
with contributions or volunteer
with the Friends of Max Linn
campaign, please contact us at
382-0229.
I am proud and .honored to
be the wife of Tom Macklin. I
will support him through all of
the changes in our lives and
look forward to future chal-
lenges.
Tammy Macklin

'Humor' too

much to take

Editor:
A line was crossed on the lat-
est episode of "The New
Adventures of Old Christifie"
last night (Oct. 9). Christine's
theory \%as that it is bad parent-
ing to take a child to church.
She ranted about her ex-hus-
band and his, live-in having
taken her son to, of all places,
church. The boy later pleaded
with his moin to take him to
church again. She fought it,
much preferring to take him to
the zoo.
The situation went dow% nhill
from there. Of course, she
finally did take the boy to
church and the "laughs" just
kept corning. -as she didn't
! krow4he first thing about hb\o
to react to the service.
Christians are supposed to
accept this "humor" with nary a
twitch or an outcry.
.On top of the Rosie
O'Donnel diatribe against
Christians on "The View"
recently, one wonders just how
long it will be before we are
jailed for our devotion to the
One who taught us the Golden-
Rule and Love One Another as
a way of life.
Should the subject of this
ridicule have been any other of.
the world religions, there
would have been rioting in the
streets' this morning. The great
possibilities of television have
been so badly corrupted by the
Antichrist -that ,, perhaps
Christians need to rethink the
support they have given to the
sponsors of such filth. But in
the end, we know that Christ
will still be on His throne lorig.

The state of

bur country
Editor:
I recently received a person-
al letter from Senator (John)
McCain who is a graduate from
the United States Naval
Academy spending 22 years in
the military, retiring as a cap-
tain, With his background, I
think we can accept him as a
true patriot.
I'd like to share some of the
information with you that he
shared with me. I had heard
some of these things, but the
source was not dependable.
He stated, most Americans
don't know that our nation's
military is smaller than it was
during Desert Storm and I
might add, the task before us is
much greater. A quote, what
happened the eight years before
President Bush took office was
one of the fastest, most shock-
ing unilateral disarmament's in
American history. And now, as
Sept. 11 has demonstrated, we
are increasingly vulnerable in a
world filled with terrorists and
potential aggressors. A few
facts:
The elimination of most of
our most critical aircraft, F14,
F15, F117, FA18 and BIB
increased at an alarming rate in


.These are some of the things
that are robbing, us .weapons
and, man power to keep our
nation and our children safe.
The nation's defense budget
with little, concern. for how it
will endanger our American
personnel and all Americans in
the years to come, potentially,
endangering our security and
our freedom. Some of our sen-
ators and congressnen are out-
raged at these unpatriotic acts.,
Right now, most of our con-
gressmen are responding to
%these special interest groups.
On election day, I pray we
will be informed and vote these
out who only, think of self
instead of what is best for the
nation see you at the polls.
They do listen to the voter.
Pray for wisdom, keep your
eyes and ears open. Let's do
our best to correct what needs
correcting. May God guide
each of us.

Stand up and

support morals

Editor:
This problem with Foley and
those young boys working in
Washington D.C. certainly is a
disgrace.
What about the American
Civil Liberties union taking the
scouts into court to allow
homosexuals to be scout mas-
ters? No out cry' there and these
young boys are a lot younger,
than those young boys working
in Washington. D.C.
When are the Democrats
going to have an outcry on our
courts allowing homosexuals to
be scout masters? And why are
not those judges told to resign
their position?.
Our elected officials in the
Republican party are to resign
because of what happen with
Rep. Foley, claiming he is


harming young children. But
not one Democrat is speaking
out about the ACLU wanting
homosexuals as scout masters
and there are millions of little
boy scouts in harm's way, and
Democrats even help with their,
money to support the ACLU.
If its harmful for those
young boys working in
Washington D.C. and the
Democratic outcry don't vote
Republican because of the.
mess ... and if Republicans vote
.democratic because of this
mess and ignore the facts, one
of these days scout masters will
be permitted to be homosexual
. by our liberal courts. There will
be millions of this same inci-
dent as with Foley with young
boys.
What about the mess if the
ACLU wins their case in court,
to have homosexuals as scout
masters, then the Republicans
ought to be ashamed of them-
selves as you are to stand up
and support our moral stand in
the Republican Party not allow-
ing the Democrats to convince
you that all Republicans are
immoral.
Ask the press why they 'are
not bringing out about the
ACLU, that their court case
wanting our courts to rule
homosexuals are to be scout
masters while claiming the
Republicans do. not care about
young boys in harm's way.
Ask the Democrat why there
is no outcry in their party with
the ACLU taking the scouts to
court have homosexuals for
scout master ... and all those
boys under the age of 15 in
harm's way before you listen to
their cry to put the Republicans
out of office and put the
Democrats in. After All all
those young scouts and their
parents are their constituents.

'Censorship is never dead. It can always rear its

ugly head.'
RICHARD SEAVER, editor in chief, Arcade Publishing, 2004


the 1990s. Thousands of our
military men are on food
stamps.
The army's strength was
reduced by 10 divisions and a
total of 630,000 men after 1989
and our overall forces were cut:
in half. The average age of our
Air Force aircraft is more than
25 years old and still climbing.
Our armed forces have been
robbed of hardware, training
and incentives.
As a result, there has been a
massive exodus of highly.
skilled individuals from our
military.
Shocking disarmament has
occurred for two reasons: First,
for eight years, :the Clinton
administration consistently
underfunded our nation's
defense requirements.
Second, congress is not
spending our defense dollars
where they are most needed.
Billions, of dollars continue
to be spent, not to increase
defense readiness, but on low
priority pork barrel projects.
I am a United States Naval
Academy graduate, serving 22
years in the military, retiring as
a captain. My experience indi-
- cates' that current defense
spending is not enough and too
much of it is being terribly
wasted.
The C-130 is a propeller-
driven aircraft used .to drop
paratroopers, deliver troops,
weapons and ammunition near
the front lines in a conflict.
Over a 21-year period, the Air
'Force requested five of these
$50 million airplanes. They got
262 because they are built in
the home district of some of
our most influential congress-
men.
A $ 1.5 billion ship was
funded that the Navy doesn't
need or want. It was built in the
state of one of our most power-
ful senators. Last year the
defense budget included $12.6
billion in pork barrel projects.

A moonlight ride down a dirt road


There was a full moon when I
was driving home late Saturday
night. It was after midnight, but
the moonlight was so bright that I
was tempted to do something
totally uncharacteristic.
Faithful readers know that I'm
afraid of the dark, or more accu-
rately, what might be in the dark.
I have been known to freeze up
like molasses in December dur-
ing power outages, and I keep a
ready stock of candles for just
such an emergency. Knowing
what I do about myself, imagine
my surprise when the thought
occurred to me to turn off the
headlights and see if I could drive
down our one-mile-long dirt road
using only the moonlight to navi-
gate. So I did it, and after I got
over being amazed that I could
actually see to drive, I started
soaking in the ambiance.
"Wow," I breathed, "this must
be what it felt like to be a pioneer'
woman."
The slender dirt road is lined-
on both sides by dark trees and
high weeds, and I imagined what
it must have been like to. live dur-
ing a time when lights weren't a
convenience that we took for
granted. I forced myself to leave
them off, pretending that I was in.
an open wagon using nothing but
my instincts and maybe the guid-
ance of a trusted horse to get
home.
I eased along at about five.
miles an hour,, pretending that I
was coming back late from town
with supplies ... a lone female pit-
ting herself against the elements,
so to speak. Defying wild ani-
mals and maybe even mythical
country monsters from behind
the steering wheel (reins). A dark'
shape bounded into the road,
paused briefly, and then scLiuled
down into the weeds on the other
side of the road, and I felt my first
stir of concern. Could have been
a possum, I thought, and then


DIRT ROAD DIARIES

C.J. Mouser

shuddered at the mental image
this thought conjured. Possums
are ugly and scary in broad day-
light; at night they're positively
hideous with their rows of teeth
and death grin.
With the lights off, the night
sounds seemed to come at me
with double the intensity they did
before. I could hear'a half-dozen
different varieties of frogs, croak-
ing their .way to romance.
Crickets chirped, and off to the
side of the road, branches
snapped and weeds rustled,
which of course could only mean
one thing ... I was being stalked
by Bigfoot.
I swallowed around a lump in
my throat and held my breath, my
hand hovering 'over the headlight
switch. All I had to do was just
flip it on. But I was in character
now; I was a pioneer woman, and
a pioneer woman couldn't have
just reached down and flipped oh
a light. What would she have
done? Probably xkouldn't have
put herself out there ini the dark
alone to begin- Xithh. wiith the
frogs, crickets, snapping branch-
es and rustling weeds. And even
if she did, she would probably
have nice, big shotgun b. her
knee for protection All I had \'as
a Zippo lighter and an umbrella
:.. the fold-up kind.
I eased to the side of the road,
peering into the ditch with mor-

bid curiosity. I didn't realize how
far I had eased.over, until the dri-
ver's side mirror caught a branch
from a nearby bush. It snapped
free, slapping me in the face and
I squealed like a child. The dark
shape bounded back across the
road and my heart stopped in my
chest.
By now my nerves were in a
twisted knot, and turning on the
headlights was no longer an
option. Enough of this pioneer
woman nonsense; they invented:
lights for a reason, and I was born
after they were invented for a rea-
son. I twisted the knob, flooding
the road with the light from the
high beams, fully prepared to see
the. bobcat or bear that. had been
stalking me along the side of the.
road, and I got almost all the way
to the yard when the dark shape
loped back into the road and
stood there wagging its Jtail, its
tongue hanging halfway to the
surface of the road, and grinning
at me..
"Stupid dog!" I yelled, and
Mooch whined and wiggled all
over, expressing her joy at seeing
me, even if I was yelling at her. I
pulled up in the yard, safely in
the glow of the yard light, and
opened the truck door,, which
engaged the dome light. I patted
Mooch on the head and walked
up on the front porch where yet
another light was blazing, along
with the additional light that was
spilling from the house windows,
and sighed in satisfaction. Like I
said, they invented lights for a
reason ... and I was born after
they were invented for a reason.

We must trust the voters


As Floridians, our lives have been
profoundly influenced by citizens
taking initiative to amend Florida's
Constitution. Citizens have limited
political terms, mandated smaller
classrooms, banned smoking in pub-
lic places, required universal pre-K, -
limited property tax increases,
required government in the sunshine,
and capped state taxes. All were
issues that Tallahassee politicians GUEST
refused to address.
Those same lobbyists and special Bill S
interests that block popular measures
in Tallahassee now want to make it
harder for the people to petition for
changes in the law. They want to require a
super-majority vote of 60 percent for the peo-
ple to amend the Constitution. Their effort,
Amendment 3 on this year's ballot, is nothing
more than a naked power grab by the special
interests that dominate Tallahassee's legislative
halls.
The citizen's initiative process is already
extremely difficult, but it is fair and the only
recourse the people have when Tallahassee's
special interests block popular issues. I know
this from personal experience. I served in the
Legislature for eight years. I watched tobacco
companies bury bills banning smoking in
restaurants and workplaces. I saw legislation
for smaller classrooms get killed in backroomi
deals. I know the hostility of most legislators to
term limits. I've witnessed big business crush
efforts to. raise the minimum wage. I've seen
how many elected representatives dislike hay-
ing to govern in the sunshine. I've heard the
government arguments against capping home-
owner's property taxes. None of these popular
initiatives would have become law if left to the
Florida Legislature. Each took an impassioned


C
u


group of citizens petitioning their
cause onto the ballot to get their
issue decided by the voters.
Amendment 3's supporters argue
that they 'are simply raising the bar
without taking, away the people's
right to decide. Under their logic,
Save Our Homes, Universal Pre-K,
and caps on the amount of taxes the
Legislature can raise would have
lOLUMN never become law, because each
- passed by a simple majority vote of
blette the people, not by a super-majority
- vote Amendment 3 requires. The
very Constitution we live under
today passed in 1968 by 55 percent.
If the special interests behind Amendment 3
succeed, Florida will be the only state to
require a super-majority vote for citizen initia-
tives.
Amendment 3 is nothing more .than a thinly
veiled insult, to the voters of Florida. It sends
the message that the majority of Floridians
don't know what is best for their state, and that
a minority of voters should be allowed to block
what the majority wants as law.
Floridians have a simple choice on Nov. 7.
They can either vote to trust the politicians,
lobbyists, and special interests by voting for
Amendment 3, or they can vote to trust the peo-
ple by voting against Amendment 3. I say trust
the people.

GALLERY
Continued from 9A
there was a spirit to the palm
and it inspired me to start
painting these broken trees as
angels."
In February :2006, the
Kegleys launched the first,
Gallery Walk to help acquaint
people in the community with
the fine arts venues in the his-
'toric district. Scheduled from
.5-8 p.m. the last Thursday of
the month, this event has
grown from four to 10 shops
and galleries in just eight
months.
In order to become a partici-
pant, the business "has to be
about 'art, or display works of
art, or have an artist in the
shop demonstrating some type


of art," Kegley said.
"Our art galleries seem to be
a big secret," she continued.
"A lot of people don't come
down here in the evening, and
I think this is helping people to
discover downtown Sebring."
Linda Kegley has donated
her considerable talent as a
graphic designer in producing
advertisements, flyers and,
news releases to promote this
monthly event. She has
worked tirelessly with the
Highlands Art League and oth-
ers in the fine arts conimunity
to make this a success
. "As this continues to get
larger, we are going to need
more help., We would like to
get more people to help with
publicity, distribute brochures
and get involved. And we
always welcome ideas.".


The Kegleys both said they
would love to see many more
artists and galleries come into
downtown Sebring. They ,
believe that numbers and vari-
ety create a thriving art com-
munity that will draw visitors
from both coasts.
"We are delighted to see
other galleries opening down
here," Linda said. "We arenriot
competitors, 'we are all partners
and we will all benefit."
The new LK Artworks
Gallery is at 104 N.
Ridgewood Drive in the
restored Buckeye Building in
Sebring.
Linda Kegley's work can be

to all of the artists currently on
exhibit at the gallery.

Lifestyle


Holy


Pickerel!
My folks and I went to
see "Canada's National
Parks," one of the trave-
logue films presented by the
Highlands County Kiawanis
as a fund-raiser. As the
filmmaker shared with us at
the beginning of the film,
the people in United States
seem to think they are the
only country in America. It
was wonderful seeing the
breathtaking beauty and
wildlife of our neighbor to
the north through the eyes
of a camera.
While I was growing up,
my family spent many
happy hours in Canada; my
grandparents had a cabin on
Chandis Lake, near
Georgian Bay, Ontario
(pc.gc.ca/pn- np/on/georg
indexx. .ap). I remember
going in Grandpa's boat
early in the morning (be fore
the fish woke up was what I
was told) and fishing for
breakfast. The red-%w inged
blackbirds '\ere beautiful,
and the canails looked as
soft as pussy wN illow s.
Those were the dais, we
followed a logging road'
into camp: had to shoo por-
cupines from the outhouse
(I have the picture to pro\ e
that one too); and ate blue-
berries until we couldn't eat
,any more. A memory from
that time is of my grand-
mother making red rose tea,
leading the tea bag in m\
cup, and I would read my
fortune on the tag.: ... .
Aunt \erna. ni great-
aunt. lo'ed frog legs: %e
ha'e a picture of her hold-
ing some of her "catch."
That's one taste I never
acquired
One summer we were
luckN enough to find a coui-
ple of sunken boats from
which we recovered the
propellers and portholes.
lM\ mom found fish wallpa-
per. draped a seine with
wooden floats around a
polelight, and used the net
and propellers as a room
divider. She helped me put
decals on plates and cups
that we set in our glass-
fronted cupboard I still
ha\e them buried some-
%%here in mn fragilees" I
e\en put decals on soaps-
that \ear and gave them as
Christmas gifts I sure
thought I %%as a big girl.
being able to do that.
_N\ grandfather took a
breathtaking photograph of.
the logging road v. hen the
leaves had turned the hun-
dreds of golden reds and
yellows of fall splendor.
That photo hune in a place
of honor in the grands,
home until their deaths.
Nlani fishing stories
based on the northern pike
and walleye that had been
caught were shared during
the evening relaxation and
recap of the da\ 's success.
My fa'onte storN from that
time was of the fisherman
who always washed his
- hands over the side of his
boat after baiting his hook.
One afternoon, he watched
in astonishment asa picker-
el jumped out of the water,
grabbed a red-winged
blackbird singing ona tall
cattail, and took him back
underwater for supper. The
fisherman vowed there and
then to never wash his
hands overboard again

Sandy's




Cat




Rescue:


Deliverance

from desertion
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
,i't''t ; : ".-S, l; ..,rrc,'[, .,ii t' i.,
SEBRING
S andra Harve\ knows what it's
like to need help. Especially ,
after a car accident put her in a
nursing home to relearn ho\ to
walk. talk. read. etc.
Harx\e\ used to professionally show
and train horses in Maryland. And
recently she was a volunteer at the
Humane Societ[ of Highlands County
\here she helped socialize cats for
adoption.
She and her significant other Sgt. Joe
Ossman. %k ho is a correctional officer.
ha\e always been animal loIers. So it
made sense to start the non-profit
Sand.'s Cat Rescue to alle\ iate the cat
overpopulation in Highlands County.
The\ spay. neuter, get shots and med-
ications for the 40-50 cats the take in.
"\"Without the help of our God. hel
couldn't have done this," Harne\ said
about Ossman.
Her cats range front 13 weeks to 7-8
\ears of age and represent a large selec-
tion of breeds: Flame-point Siamese.
seal-point Siamese. Hemmingc\a\
tabby. calico, tabby
and Russian blue.
"People dump
cats because of the
costs of tests and
shots. Spa\ ing and
neutering runs
$100-$200 plus
shots. There's no
clinic to get it done -
at a reasonable
price. Highlands
County doesn't
offer lo\w-cost spay-
ing and neutering. I
received seen calls
in one da\ to take
more cats and I
can't. I need to find .,
good adoptive ,
homes for the ones ":"
I have. and then I
can help more."
Hanre\ said. '
Harve\ indulges
her cats daily bv. working and talking
with them. She feels each one is unique
and has a distinctive personality. For
example. Bluebell is a 1-year-old
Russian blue, w\ho loves people and is
\er\ sweet Sir Cooper took a long time
to recuperate after being dumped. but is
no" health and spoiled. Silky is a 3
1/2 month old, domestic long-hair cali-
co w ho loes to talk to people. Sunny is
a 7-year-old. flame-point Siamese mrale
x\ho %\as rescued when his elderly\

o% ner died. "He'd be great for an older
couple \ ith no kids." Harte\ said.
Shelb\ L\iin is a 2-. ear-old calico.
She's a fat and siss' indoor cat that's
s\eet around kids.
Har\e"s visionn is to educate people
not to abandon cats. Although there are
no la'ks to present it, she feels a rescue
shelter is the humane \\a\ to go "I'd


loae to ha\e a climec where cats could
be spared and neutered. \Ve need a vet
if only for two days a %week. This would
help people % ho can't afford those
costs but %would adopt a cat. l'\e always
loved all animals and want to help these
cats. I want to pro\ ide a place to'keep
them until the\ can be adopted."
Hanrey said.


Sandy's Cat Rescue has a large selec-
tion to choose from. Some are already
neutered and ha'e had their shots. All
of her cats are lovable and in need of a
forever home.
Contact Sandy's Cat Rescue at 314-
8832 to adopt a cat or make a contribu-
tion of food. liner or flea control prod-
ucts which h are gratefully accepted.


Learning how to become 'elder-friendly


E'This is the fourth in a series on the
Flohrida Confere'nce on.Agiiig.

By LARRY LEVEY
V. /,'*:* d- *:". u I .:., *njfl, .d t -
TAMPA This session att the
2006 Florida Conference on Aging
could have been titled. "Walk a Mile
in My Shoes." The idea behind it
was to give staff members of agen-
cies and facilities senr ing the elderly
"Senior Sensiti\ ty Training."
This means making staff more
aware of the kinds of bodily changes
that occur as older people age. It also
means being aware that they age at
different rates, that not, all elders are
the same, physically, emotionally or
psychologically. Becoming sensitive
to these matters may help one relate
and communicate better ith older
adults. ',
The session was not just a lecture.
It was a workshop. Participants were
divided into pairs for the,first series
of exercises. Here people tried on
different kinds of glasses, designed
to simulate various vision disorders
and to try to perform a task.
.After putting on the first pair of
glasses like looking through a'pin
hole participants then had to find


S ,tat lng i



several names in the phone book. No
luck. That, they found out, is what
glaucoma does to them.
With another pair, the\ had to turn
our heads from side-to-side to be
able to see what was in front of them.
That's what macular degeneration
does.
Another pair had them looking
through something like a sheet of
Vaseline. Welcome to the world of
cataracts.
And after putting on still another
pair, the. had to pick out several,
blue pills from a pill bottle. Guess
what? The green pills came across as
blue, thanks to a "yellowing" of the
lens.
Moving on, participants put on a
pair of gloves and tried to tie their
"grandson's shoelaces." They could-
n't. That's what happens when peo-
ple have arthritis.
And if they were the one watching
while the other was going through


the exercise. what w\as their first,
impulse? Why to jump right in and
do it for the person, night? But all;
that does is undermine the person's,
self-confidence and reinforce a feel-
ing of dependencts.
Hearing \kas another big issue. An
audio tape %kas played demonstrating
mild and moderate hearing loss -
and the disastrous effects of back-
ground noises. Participants \were told
that %%hen speaking to someone with
a hearing loss. look at the person,
speak slot and speak low. The
higher the pitch. the harder to hear.
And theI learned that when they call
those 800 numbers and follow the
phone prompts, they come at them a
mile-a-minute, too fast to respond.
For organizations wanting .more
information on senior sensitivity
'training, contact Linda Grassa, proj-
ect coordinator. Orange County
Office on Aging. Health and Family
Services. Department, 2100 E..
Michigan St., Orlando, FL 32806;
call (407) 836-6581; or e-mail
Linda.Grassa@ocfl.net.

Improving the image of the older
adult will be the topic covered next
Friday.


SLARRY LEVEY/News-Surn
Cindi Ryerson, who directs an adult day care center
in Fort Myers, tries on one of several pairs of glasses.
designed to simulate a variety of vision problems.
She was attending a workshop in 'Senior Sensitivity
Training' during the 2006 Florida Conference on
Aging in Tampa in August.

DiCaprio, Scorsese deliver goods in "The Departed"


In all the years that their two
careers have moved along on
parallel tracks, through the
same decades and similar acco-
lades, "The Departed" marks
the first time Jack Nicholson
has ever starred in a Martin
Scorsese directed picture.
That doesn't seem right, does
it?
Instead, Scorsese has teamed
up with Robert DiNiro time and
again to create some memo-
rable moments. Historical mon-
tages of American cinema for
documentaries or award cere-
monies inevitably contain
bloody images from "Taxi
Driver" and "Goodfellas,"
DiNiro's crazed countenance
trained at the camera. Lately
Scorsese has employed the
services of Leonardo DiCaprio
as his new DiNiro, getting rave
reviews for "Gangs of New
York" and "The Aviator."
The two have. struck gold
again in the riveting cop and'
mobster film "The Departed,"
the best film yet of 2006.
The phrase "powerhouse, act-
ing" gets thrown around a lot
when critics describe Scorsese
movies but his film has set a
new standard for the descrip-
tion. Without a weak link on the
cast the actors truly bring out
the best in one another.
"The Departed" is based on
the Hong Kong thriller-
"Infernal Affairs" and having
not seen that film. I can't offer
an opinion of ho\\ this rendition
stacks up. I do know that the
original is said to center more
on choreographed action
sequences rather than the per-
sonal tribulations of the charac-
ters Scorsese has chosen to

'The Departed'








,highlight, which is where the
strength of this film resides.
DiCaprio's performance as
Billy Costigan. the
Massachusetts State Police
Department's underco\ er agent,
is absolutely transcendent and
his best effort since "What's
Eating Gilbert Grape." After
leaving the police academy and
being convinced to take the job
as the inside man in Boston's


Irish mob, Costigan's moral
,quandary mirrors Colin
Sullivan's (Matt Damon).
Sullivan sits on the other side of
the fence, a young officer
groomed to be mob boss Frank
Costello's (Nicholson) inform-
ant on the good side of the law.
The dichotomy is clear and
compelling, begging the ques-
tion, which is worse? A good
man pretending to -do evil
things or a bad man pretending
to be good?
Costigan gets in as tight as
possible with Cotello who
never fully, trusts the volatile,
young man and consequently
keeps him esen closer. Damon
and DiCaprio. like Pacino and
DiNiro in Michael Mann's 1995
film "Heat," never share the
screen until the very end. mas-
terfully building the tension to
that fateful moment. What they
do share is the love interest of
police psychiatrist Madolyn
(Vera Farmiga.) \ho falls for the
charms of both men. Madolyn
is tortured by their lies, emo-
tionally battered by the constant
deception and eventually
retreats before everyone meets


their demise.
Mark Wahlberg, Martin
Sheen and Alec Baldwin round
out the cast of cops, each offer-
ing their own sublime take on
the embroiled inner-city Boston
police officer. No one ever lets
up, and neither does the story.
The violence in "The
Departed" is as vivid as any
you've ever-seen and the guns
really start popping toward the
end. Prepare yourself for the
abruptness of it,all.
Prepare yourself also for a
film that will leave you ponder-
ing the plot for several days
after viewing. "The Departed"
is that powerful.

To some the church means a
social group where they 'can
mingle with others of common
interests. To others it is a place,
a building. To others the church
is just another religious group. a
denomination among man).
S6me consider the church as
part of the "establishment." and
it thus is rejected. Many seem to
think of the church as some sort
of "keeper of morals" to set and
preserve 'moral standards in
society. Some do not consider
the church at all, it is not a part
of their thinking nor of their
lives. But what does the church
mean to you and to your life?
Jesus made a promise. "I will
build My church," based from
Matthew 16:18. What does that
church mean to you?'
Many people treat the church
as though it did not exist, until
they are faced with some crisis
in their family; then they call.
Many who regular\ attend
church use it as a slave for their
conscience while they spend the


rest of the week
"enjoying life to the
fullest." Enemies of
the church can hardly
be expected to have
the same view of the
, church as those w\ho
have committed their
lives to it. So what
does the church
mean to you? Let us
see in the Scriptures*
what it has meant to
others, so that, we,
might have the prop-
er view of it.
To the Jews, the
church was another
sect.


VERI
SPIRIT
VmIr
V erlon


When the Jew ish leaders in
Rome came to talk with the
Apostle Paul, they announced
the subject for discussion: "We
desire to hear of thee w hat thou
thinkest; for as concerning this
sect, we know that everywhere
it is spoken against" based from
Acts 28:22. The Jews.had sev-
eral sects among them and there


was intense rivalry
for power based from
Acts 23. The Jews,
who came to Paul
- a thought the Church of
Christ was just anioth-
er "sect" or "branch"
of. thee Jewish rell-
gion.
.ON The church Jesus-
btuilt was never
ITUAL designed to be a sect.
It was not planned to
iMIN be a part of Judaism,
- nor a part of anything
Carrell else. Jesus s said,
"'Behold, I make all
things new."
Revelation 21:5 sass that he
did not come into this world to
"put a new patch on an old gar-
nment."
Mark 2:21 and Hebrews 8:6
say. but to be the mediator of
the New Testament which is
based on a better foundation
than the Old (Hebrews 8:6).
Christ died on the cross to
establish the New Testament


based from Hebrews 9:15 and
thereby paid the purchase price
for his church based from Acts
20:28. The Jews thought the
church as just another sect. but
Paul showed that the church is'
not a sect, based from Acts
24:14. *
There are many today who
consider that same church to be
a sect or "denomination." But
Jesus never built a sect (denom-
ination), nor has he ever author-
ized one to be built. He prayed
for and commanded unity based
from John 17: 20.21; 1
Corinthians 1:10. That church
was not a sect then, it is not a
sect now. The allegation that is
was sect did not make it one.
and the same allegation today
does not make it one.

at Lake Placid Church of
C/hrist. He can be reached at

like they diet on sour pickles.
Look how the dear Amish peo-
ni.o htw,.7 chnrolrf-.a h het mnr,'l r


their extension of forgiveness.to
the man who 'took the life of
their children. How is this pos-,
sible? Do the members' neigh-
bors know they are Christians,
in any other way than the fact
they seem to go to church every
Sunday?
Article 12 reads as follows:
"We believe that all saved (peo-
ple) should live in such a man-
ner as not to bring reproach
(shame) upon their Savior and
Lord; that separation from'all
religious apostasy, all worldly
and sinful: pleasures, practices .
and associations is commanded
by God."
Now if someone did -not
understand, the previous para-.
graph, then they are invited to
. come and hear Lambert explain
what the church believes the
* Bible teaches about
S"Separation." The supporting
Scripture is 2 Timothl, 3:1-5; 1
John 2: 15-17; 2 Corinthians 6:
14-17; Romans 12:1,2.

bled in attendance last week.

hearing impairments joining the

section reserved for the hearing
impaired in front so they do not
have heads keeping them from
seeing the interpreter.

ple are now choosing to attend,
all children will -stay in the
sanctuary for the worship serv-
ice. However, a story just for
children, will be' shared from
the pulpit. During the sermon,

TALES
Continued from ID)
ground is just as frenzied but
not as detailed.. For them it's an
anonymous burst of motion,
the masses transforming into a
unified living thing.'
What is this creature? Who
are these "fans" and why do
they invest so much emotion in
an emblem?
I pondered this as I watched
my favorite club advance to
the NLCS for the third year in
a row. As a fourth generation
Cardinals, fan, rooting for the
birds is not really something I.
had a choice in.
Growing up in suburban St.
Louis, as soon as I was old
enough to comprehend what .
baseball was, I knew of the
Cardinals.
I have early memories of the
1982 World Series win. cry ing
-after the 1985 World Series
loss and stubbornly refusing to
talk to one bf my sixth-grade
teachers -\ho \was a Giants fan
during the 1987:NLCS.
For mi-y fir.t Major League
game. I saw\ the Cardinals play
the Montreal Expos at the old-
Busch Stadium on a muggy
day amplified by the swelter-,
ing Astroturf. Last week. I was
lucky enough to experience my
first game at the new baseball
cathedral in: St. Louis, an event
made even more memorable by
Albert Pujols' titanic game-
\. inning home run in the eighth
inning;
Water is vet. the world is
round and I cheer for the
Cardinals.


The fans of a pro

team' are the

Only folks whose

loyalty is

unwavering.

Of course, while, the Cards
were busy winning the game I
wasn't merely sitting in deep
contemplation. I was going
batty myself, calling friends in
Missoun to hi-five \ ia cell
phone and discuss how we
could possibly beat the Mets in
the next round. "We" could
beat the Mets with Albert's bat,
a suddenly energized young
bullpen and a continued effort
to play solid defense, while I
%would do m) part by watching
the gameson TV and hurling
deranged shouts at the screen.
It's a strange thing to love a
baseball team in these transient
times. The Cardinals ha'e
changed so much that it's vir-
tually a different squad from
the group that was throttled by
the Red Sox in 2004.
Woody Williams. once a
cornerstone of the pitching
staff and a quintessential
Cardinal, is now a Padre,
which led me to my next
thought: Who are the real.
Cardinals? Players so frequent-
ly float in and out of organiza-
tions it's getting impossible to
identify a team with a single
"player any more. Who are the
real Cowboys, 76ersor
Blackhaw~ks for that matter?


My answer is: the fans. The
fans of a pro team are the only
folks whose loyalty is unwa-
vering. That anonymous sea of
revelers behind the dugout are
the people who will continue
to wear Cardinal red long after
. the wheeling and dealing has
dismantled the 2006 team in
the offseason.
Alex Rodriguez, future hall-
of-famer that he is, is not a
Yankee. He's an entity in and
of himself, as are Shaq, T.O.
and the Rocket. They are mer-
cenary entertainers willing to
bolt at the drop of a hat. Some
of them stick around (Cal
Ripken), but most ballplayers
nowadays will play for two or
three teams before they hang
up their cleats.
I'm not bitter, but I'm not
naive either. It's invigorating to
attach your ego to.a franchise
and ride the roller coaster
through the playoffs. For years,
non-Cardinal friends of mine
have called me at the begin-
ning of every post-season to
wish me luck, as if I had a
hand in the outcome. That's
pretty neat.
'The bond between profes-
sional franchise and fan is
unique. Whatever the outcome
this October, I won't get a ring
or a long vacation after the fes-
tivities, I won't get to sulk in
the clubhouse, dogpile on my
teammates or get drenched in
champagne, but maybe I'
should.
I've earned it.
