NStsll'.- n
SEBRING Delroy Blake. 10. joined Big Brothers
Big Sisters but. with 85 children on a waiting g list. it may
be a while until he gets a "Big" of his own.
Blake was among 20 children who toured Sebring
Regional Airport on Saturday and flew in a variety craft
provided by the Experimental Aircraft Association-
Youbg Eagles.
"It was kind of a good flight," Blake said, after exiting
Joe Bamhart's Long Easy experimental plane %with rear-
mounted propeller.
Lennise Scon, of Avon Park, watched as her son 'en-
tured off into the \wild blue yonder. Scott learned about
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast from a friend,
"who had heard about it from a friend.
"There's nothing wrong with good. clean fun and for
him to experience new things." Scott said, when asked
w\hy she enrolled him. "Somebody is there to give him
guidance other than me."'
She said Blake's father lives out of state. His in ol\e-
ment with his son is through phone calls.
Chris Quackenbush. 15, was with his "Big," Wayne
,NiMcFarland. of Sebring.
McFarland is the current president of the program's
local board of directors and has been Quackenbush's Big
Brother for five years.
"He's made me a better person." Quackenbush said. "I
Shave a better attitude toward life."
Work and farml. commitments as of late have meant
only monthly visits for the two. but typically the\ hang
out twvo or three times each month.
Acknowledging his own schedule. McFarland said
that that is one of the biggest objections he hears from
prospective "Bigs," that they're too busy with their own
families.


Big Brother Waayne McFarland from lehI, pilot George
Von Erschenbach and Chris Quackenbdsh. 15. talk about
Quackenbush's experience flying Saturday .

"Some kids don't have the ad\ antages that I had or that
my family has." McFarland said of his desire to fill a
need. "I believe in young people."
Half of the guys' time together is spent with
McFarland. his wife and their 13- and 16->ear-old daugh-
ters.
"'Sometimes. we just go out and do gu\ stuff." he said,
mentioning hunting. shooting, bosw ling. mos ies and fish-
ing.
"I taught him to fish." Quackenbush boasted.

Dilley alleges


county broke


state law


with lawsuit

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
t., res-Sun
SEBRING Roland L. Dille\ is asking the
10th Circuit Court to determine whether
Highlands County commissioners violated state
la%% in denying his rezoning request.
The nine-page appeal \was filed Oct. 6. Judge
Ellen S. Masters ordered Highlands Counts to
submit a response within 30 days of being
served.
County Attorney J. Ross MacBeth received
the notice Thursday and is re\ ie ing the docu-
ment. count> spokeswoman Corine Burgess said
Thursday .
"When \e '\ent before the counts. '\e com-
plied exactly with \\hat the count> has on the
books," attorney War\\ick R. "'Bud" Furr said
Friday, explaining that the appeal stems from the
Sept. 26 count\ commission denial of Dille\'s
rezoning request.
Citrus canker was found in October 2005 at
Dilles's 59-acre grose.s which \\as on the north
side of State Road 64 across the highvwas from
the Avon Park Executise Airport.
As directed bx the Florida Department otf
Agriculture. Dille\ destroyed his nurseri and
lost his property's agriculture value. Furr said in
the petition.
Subsequently Dille> has attempted to hase
the property rezoned to make it attractive to res-
idential developers.
Despite a June recommendation from the
county's joint Zoning and Planning Commission
and from staff in the Planning Department. the
board voted 4-1 to deny the request at its Sept.
26 meeting.
"I thought it should be a reverse issue." com-
missioner C. Guy NMaxcy said Friday. comment-
ing on his dissent from the majority. "My main -
thinking at that time was if this isn't a property
rights issue. I do6't knows what is."
Referring to Avon Park as "big brother."
Maxc\ said its airport should conform to the
conimunits around it. rather than try ing to force
landow ners to conform to its visionn of landing
larger jets.
Avon Park began a program in the late-1980's
to expand "Runma 41/22" from 3.500 feel to
5.363 feet. securing Federal A\ nation
Administration runway improvement grants to
do so.
"The airport has incurred substantial net oper-
ating losses for the last five \ears." Fun alleged
in the petition. "And. but for the existence of
Federal Aviation Administration grants, %would
not sur\i\e "
He said the city represented that it \would
."own. acquire or agree to acquire runway clear
zones" in accordance with federal la\s and FAA
grant requirements but has failed to do so.
A 1992 FAA grant of $436.000 was used to
acquire property at the executive airport's south-
west corner to extend Runssa\ 4/22. Avon Park
City Manager C.B. Shirey said Friday.

Sebring High celebrates

Hispanic Heritage Month


By TREY CHRISTY
N,.o Sun.
SEBRING Students at'
Sebring High School were
treated to something special on
Friday.
When entering the building
all of their senses %were delight-
ed --- from the hearitig. of
Hispanic music, to -seeing
Hispanic dancing and even
smelling, and later tasting vari-
ous dishes from many of the 20
Spanish-speaking countries
represented at the Hispanic
Heritage Month celebration.
This is the first time there has
been a special event at Sebring
High to celebrate the month,
originally a week set aside by
President Lvndon B. Johnson in
1968 then expanded in 1988 to
a monthlong celebration from


Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The reason
for starting in the middle of the
month instead of using one cal-
endar month like African
American History Month in
February, or W'omen's History
Month in March, is that Sept.
15 is the anniversary of the
independence of five Spanish
speaking countries Costa
Rica. El Salvador, Guatemala,
Honduras and Nicaragua.
SMany of the Spanish teachers
at Sebring High School led in
the celebration, including Sonia
Rivera. She said not only teach-
ers but "all of the Spanish stu-
dents helped put on this e' ent
by making banners to represent
each individual country."
All of the 20 Spanish-speak -

Commission continues discussion on Pearce Homestead


By MATr MURPHY
News-Sun
The historic Pearce
Homestead remains the main
topic of discussion for the
Highlands County Historic
Preservation Commission.
At their regular monthly
meeting Thursday, the commis-
sion discussed ideas brought
forth at the Sept. 28 public
workshop, and continued to
work out a plan to present to the
county commission.
Chairwoman Catherine
Cornelius presented several
ideas, including making the
property a county park run sim-
ilarly to Highlands Hammock
State Park. The park could, in
theory, feature a visitor center
in the main house, tours of the
1900's era farm, citrus trees, a
refurbished barn, and maybe
even a few animals.
A public dock and boat ramp
have also been proposed for the
property, although space issues
would have to be worked out.
Ecotourism, which was
brought up multiple times at the
September workshop, could
also be a. prominent feature of
the estate. Riverboat tours of
the historic Kissimmee River
could be set up, as could fishing
tournaments in the river.
Commission member Keith


Hunnicutt said the restored
property could attract people
"willing to rough it a little.".
Commissioner Marguerite
Skipper said the schoolhouse
could be divided half for a
restaurant and half for an exhib-
it on historic schoolhouses.
William Swann, commission
vice chairman, said it would be
"tough to break even" on the
park, but that this should not be
a deterrent. The area should be
a service to county residents, he
said, citing libraries and parks
as other county-run enterprises
that don't necessarily make
money but instead serve a
greater public good.
Hunnicutt echoed this point,
saying that expecting parks and
recreation projects to make a
profit is "absurd."
County acceptance of the
$500,000 grant proposed by the,
South. Florida Water Manage-
ment District is a "viable alter-
native to sitting there watching
the grass grow," Swann said.
"If the place is well-used and
people are excited about it,"
Cornelius said, "isn't that what
the county is trying to do? To
provide a service?"
County Commissioner .Guy
Maxcy, liaison to the. group,
said the proposal needs to be
presented in a way that basical-


ly leaves the county commis-
sion with no choice but to
accept.
He presented three scenarios
outlining the fate of the home-
stead. If someone gets involved
and does something with the
project, Maxcy said, they will
"enjoy the rewards from it." If
the county (or anyone else)
doesn't get involved, however,
the project is destined "to go to
heck in a handbasket. And that
would be a tragedy."
The commission also dis-
cussed finding partners to help-
share the costs.-Involving other'
counties in the area was men-
tioned, and Okeechobee County
has reportedly shown some
interest in the project. The city


of Okeechobee is actually much
closer to the property than
Sebring, so its involvement
would be' an important part of
the project.
Audrey Vickers, who previ-
ously served on the county
commission in the 1990's and is
running against incumbent
Edgar Stokes in District 2 this
time around, mentioned the
Seminole tribe, the Florida
Atlantic University Jupiter
campus, and the Florida
Cracker Trail Association as
entities that might partner with
the county.
The commission is also
.working out questions on
access, parking and getting the
word out about the homestead.


They said they're planning on
asking the county commission
to give them three to five years
to work out how to procure
grants, develop a plan to fix up
the property, and figure out how
best to utilize the property.
Cornelius emphasized the
future value of the property,
regardless of whether planned
developments work 'out. The
future value of the property is
believed to be several million
dollars.
"This thing's got value," she
said. "Even if you sell it after
five years, you'll get the money
back."
"Give us three years,"
Hunnicutt said. "You owe us
that."


He said the $500,000 would
be enough to sustain the proper-
ty for at least three years, .and
more likely five.
The key now is to convince
the county commission that the
project is a worthwhile'one.
The next step in the process
is the second public workshop.
The Oct. 26 meeting starts at
2:30 p.m. at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center,
Room II.
After receiving more public
input there, the group will con-
tinue discussions on the home-
stead at its Nov. 9 meeting. The
commission plans to .present its
plan for the Pearce Homestead
to the county commission at a
December workshop meeting.


Breakfast kicks off Disability Mentoring Day


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
AVON PARK The most
important part of a wage-earn-.
ing, tax-paying employee's day
is breakfast.
With that in mind, ,the
Jacaranda Hotel on Avon Park's
Main .Street will host the kick-
off breakfast Wednesday for
Disability Mentoring Day,
which Ridge Area Aic is coor-
dinating throughout the county
with the help and support of
numerous businesses and gov-


eminent offices.
"It's about experience and an
opportunity," Cameron
Barnard, Arc director of
employment services, said of
'the awareness raising effort.
Businesses in Highlands and
Hardee counties will open their
.doors to Arc clients who are
exploring their "options in the
job market.
For some, Wednesday may
be ,a tour at the Sebring
Regional Airport, Everglades
Seasonings, Sebring Raceway,


Lockwood Aviation or the Four
Points by Sheraton Chateau
Elan.
"Not everybody participating
will ever a job,"' Barnard said,
explaining that those who are
eligible will enjoy an opportune
time to explore their interests.
Employers, too will benefit
.by getting a brief-insight into
Arc's employment program, that
includes coaches who help
clients adjust to new work envi-
ronments.
While the day of mentoring


comes around but once a year,
Arc conducts its program con-
tinuously with several partici-
pating businesses that regularly
employ Arc clients, Barnard
said.
"I tell people I've probably
washed every dish in this coun-
ty," she said. of the challenges,
and rewards of being a coach.
After' the breakfast where
mentors will meet their shad-.
ows, the pairs will return to
'their respective businesses until
noon.


Future firefighter?


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
McKaylah Mann, 1, of Sebring, isn't sure what to think
about trying on a firefighter's helmet last Saturday afternoon
during fire safety day at the Home Depot in Sebring. Mann is
the daughter of West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department
chief Scott Mann. Home Depot along with West Sebring
Volunteer Fire Department,,the American Red Cross and the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office provided nearly 200 kids
with free fire safety tips, picture i.d.s, fire truck tours and the
opportunity to build their own a fire truck bank.



City candidates discuss forums


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Avon Park,
residents will have an opportu-,
nity to hear from the hopefuls
on this year's municipal ballot
at a special candidate's forum.
. The program will be broad-
cast live over AM730 WWTK
Monday night, the Cohan
Radio Group's nest talk-station.
"We feel this will be a very
important program for the citi-
zens of Avon Park.. People who
cannot attend for whatever rea-
son will be able to hear the can-
didates and the issues," Cohan
Radio Group president Peter
Coughlin said.
The candidates will have an
,opportunity to speak to the
issues that currently are being
considered by the council and
also are looming in the future.
"We plan to discuss such
things as growth, budget priori-
ties, code enforcement and a
number of other hot button
issues which have been making
headlines here in the past few
months," Cohan Radio News
Director Barry Foster said.
Foster will be asking the ques-
tions.
The program is being put on
by the Ivory Club, an informa-
tional group in Highlands
County. Foster will continue the
practice of accepting written
questions from the audience
that may be used to address cer-


tain issues.
"\e'\ e found sometimes the
questions can be emotional or
subjective, so we try to distill
them to the issues and ha'e the
candidates respond." he said.

OBITUARIES


TREY CHRISTY/ News Sun
Members of the Reading First program at Woodlawn Elementary School are (from left) Brenda
Shinholser, Teresa Franchio, Megan Gonzalez, and Linda Alexander. Shinholser, Franchio, and Gonzalez
are the team leaders for grades kindergarten through second grade, respectively, and Alexander teaches
third grade and is sitting in for her team leader Freda Hoffman (not.pictured). Together the four,teach-
ers have 80 years experience in the school system.


Reading comes first at Woodlawn


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
SEBRING Imagine a stu-
dent struggling to understand a
subject in school.
Whetherthat subject is math,
history, or science, the student
has a better chance at compre-
hending what the textbook is
trying to teach them if they are
able to read at their grade level.
Students that lack good reading
skills at an early age are less
likely to do well in school in the
future. This reason is why the,
federal government started the
Reading First program. The
program gives certain elemen-
tary schools that apply for the
program the opportunity to
receive funds and allocate them
toward a reading program as
part of an initiative to focus
teaching students from kinder-
garten to third grade how .to
read, not only: at or above their
grade level but also to reduce
the, amount of students that are
at high risk and are reading well,
below their grade level.
The students at Woodlawn
ElementarN School are showing
vast improvements in this. their
fourth ear ithli .the prggranm
- and the statistics show it. When
starting the program, about 60
percent of students had a read-
ing comprehension level at or
above their grade level. As of
last year, that number rose to
just under 75 percent, an amaz-
ing jump of 15.15 percent. This
is a huge gain even when com-
pared to the students in the
other schools across, the nation


that also participated in this
program, showing a rise of only
5.3 percent in the 319 schools.
The same can be said for stu-
dents deemed "high risk." The
number of high-risk students
fell from a starting percentage
in the 2003-2004 school year of
a little more than 25 to a sur-
prisingly low 8 percent, 'a drop
of an astonishing 16.8 percent
compared to 5.82 of all students
in the program across the states.
The program starts in kinder-
garten where teacher Brenda
Shinholser, in her 32nd year of
teaching, is seeing a vast
improvement in her students
thanks to the way the program
-is set up and the funds that the
school is receiving. It's not just
the money though, it's the way,
things are done. ,
"We are able to develop
strategies early and look at what
the students. are struggling with.
We put students in groups and
focus on the needs of the group.
This way, students get individu-
alized instruction for the things
they have trouble with the,
most." Shinholser said.
She is the team leader for the
kindergarten level, with a team
leader at each of the grade lev-
els, kindergarten through third.
All team leaders attend a four-
day reading academy to learn
strategies to pass on to students,
and each grade level has week-
ly teacher meetings to discuss
strategies to help the students at
their specific -grade level
improve their reading compre-
hension. ,


RSVP needs volunteers


SEBRING The Retired
and Senior Volunteer Program
of Highlands County, which is
sponsored by Nu-Hope Elder
Care Services Inc., is looking
for volunteers who are interest-
ed in history, art, or the envi-
ronment.
If anyone likes history and
knows a good deal about the
tale of Lake Placid or would
like to learn more about the
town, come to the Lake Placid
Historical Society Depot
Museum.
If anyone prefers to "pro-,
mote the appreciate, study and
development of the arts," vol-
unteers are needed at the
Highlands Art League in
Sebring.


CHECKPOINTS

These are the dates and loca-
tions that the Florida Highway
Patrol troopers will be conduct-
ing a driver license and vehicle
inspections:
Week of Oct. 13-19 Airport
Road at Peters Road and South
Main Street at Citrus Avenue.
Week of Oct. 20-31 -
Golfview Road and Highlands
Boulevard and Sparta Road,
1/4 mile north of State Road
66..
Recognizing the danger
present to the public by defec-
tive vehicle equipment, troop-
ers will concentrate their
efforts on vehicles being oper-
ated with defects such as bad
brakes, worn tires and defective
lighting equipment. In addition,
attention will be directed to
drivers who violate the driver
license laws of Florida.
The patrol has found these.
checkpoints to be an effective
means of enforcing the equip-
ment and driver license laws of,
Florida while insuring the pro-
tection of all motorists.


If anyone would like to help
keep this area's environment
special by using physical or
mental talents, there are oppor-
tunities at Highlands
Hammock State Park' and
Florida Atlantic University's
Riverwoods Field Lab. The
state park is in the western part
of the county and Riverwoods
is in the eastern part.
In order to sign up through
RSVP, a candidate must be at
least 55 years old. The individ-
ual. volunteer stations provide
training and inform volunteers
of any special requirements
needed to perform jobs.
For more information, con-
tact Kathleen Montgomery at
382-2134.

Teresa Franchio, the team
leader for the first grade, said
the Reading. First program
helps' "make the reading pro-
gram more sequential and nar-
rows it down to what the stu-
dents need."
The communication between
the team leaders of each grade
Ais important because the pro-
gram allows them all to work
together. After all, those first
graders will be passed on next
sear to10 Megan Gonzalez. -the.
second grade team leader, and
knowing what the students are,
reading and the skills they have
learned so far is important to
their development as students
and as readers..
Another thing that teachers
find attractive is the programs
90-minute reading block -
time set aside for reinforcement
of reading related skills, that
takes place not only in grades
kindergarten through third, the
grades affected by the program,
but all the way to fifth grade. A
condition of the grant is that the
students must show improve-
ment through standardized test-
ing, and with the results of the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test and Scholastic
Assessment Test 10, Woodlawn
Elementary is looking forward
to another year as a Reading
First school.

Highlands County Board of County Commission District 2


Conda E. Ruckman


Editor 's
note: Prior
to. the pri-
mary elec-
tion in
September,
the News-
Sun asked
county com-
mission and.
school board candidates a num-
ber of questions. The candi-
dates were asked to keep their
answers to 400 words and were
given a deadline to submit their
responses.
The News-Sun published the
questions and responses prior
to the primary election for those
races that would be decided in
that .election. The responses
from the other' candidates'
appear here since that seat wiill
be decided Nov. 7.
The News-Sun will republish
the responses front the two can-.
didates in the District 4 race in
a future publication.

How- do you :feel about
funding growth?
Permit fees for new construc-
tion plus the added revenues for,
new residents and businesses
with their ad valorem 'taxes'
have supported reasonable gov-
ernment for many years.


How will impact fees play
into the future planning for
Highlands County?
These fees are intended to
promote more bureaucratic
government and to allow politi-
cians to exceed the amount of
spending they have appropriat-
ed in their annual budget. They
will in no way benefit the pub-
lic with so-called "governmen-
tal services."
As some of our local officials
have confessed: "These fees
will not be used. for construc-
tion, but for greater borrowing
capacity." To eliminate the
"gobbledygook," this means
these fees, will be used as collat-
eral for creating more debt for
taxpayers to repay.
.What do you see as the
biggest problem in Highlands
County right now? What
would you do about it?
Overgrowth of governmental
control and using scare tactics
.for more disguised 'taxes for
socialized programs. All coun-
tN taxpayers are burdened with
financing trivial social pro-
grams to benefit the govern-
mental bureaucracy. and ,their
friends.
We must separate our public
"needs" from our government's
"wants."

Is there anything broken in
the governmental process and
if so what is it and how would
you fix it?
Everything we do is dictated
from higher government. The
very first article of our Florida
Constitution, Section 1, states:
"All political power is inherent
in the people."
The flow of this dictation
needs to be reversed,-and let
government know what we will
and will not tolerate.
The bottom line is: Do we
want "democracy" or "dictator-
ship?"
In terms of county govern-
ment administration, how will
we address the changes?
Such' as Carl Cool's retire-
ment?
, The county administrator is
the main reason for excessive
governmental control and
socialized spending. It's time to
replace all his socialized ideas,
-and. return to the democracy
that made this country great.
Although law\s are made by fed-
eral and state legislatures.. they
are interpreted and implement-
ed entirely different by local
governments.
What role should the coun-
ty play in regional growth?
Democracy is a tool to help
man abide by the laws of
nature. Our American govern-

ed at that time. Hopefully, this
can 'be accomplished by a
Human Resources process that
does not include hiring a
$30.000 consultant to tell us
how or engage a "head hunter."
What role should the coun-
ty play in regional growth?
Highlands County,. as the
largest count) .in the Heartland
area of south central ,Florida,
should take a leadership role
because these daN s require gov-
ernment working together at all
costs.
Partnerships \%ith the cities,
schools. colleges and other
community groups will be
required if the region is to grow
steadily and properly and offer
a good quality of life to its resi-
dents.

How do
you feel
S.., about fund-
f in mg growth?
.- One of the
N. responsibili-
ties of the
county com-
mission is
funding
growth, a very necessary part of
preparing for the future.
Although it's never an easy
task, we are focusing a lot of
time and energy on developing
the most fair, equitable and effi-
cient method of funding growth
in our community.
How will impact fees play
into the future planning for
Highlands County?
Impact fees on new construc-
tion is a mechanism for raising
funds for building infrastruc-
ture to support the new growth
in our county. New people.
arrive daily and decide to stay.
Those new people require more
roads, law enforcement, fire
rescue, emergency, medical
services, libraries, parks and
recreation, and educational
facilities to name a few. The
people already living here pay
ad valorem taxes to pay for
these services. If new growth
requires increases in these serv-
ices, the new. construction
should help pay for the increas-
es.
What do you see as the
biggest problem in Highlands
County right now? What
would you do about it?
Growth management is one
of the biggest problems I see for
our county. Unexpected
growth, unfunded mandates and
constitutional amendments
have put our schools in a bind;.
and our county has to come iup
witlt solutions to these prob-
lems.
We need to generate more,
funds to build more classrooms.
We need to meet regularly with
our legislators to convey this
message. We also need to help
educate voters when an issue is
on the ballot.that will affect our
budgg t. m ,..: *. n,
Is there anything broken in,
the governmental process and
if so what is it and how would
you fix it?
I do not look at our county
government and see anything
broken, but there is always
room for. improvement in any
organization including county
government. We have to be'
earnest in our attempts to make
things better for our county res-
idents. We must continue to
evaluate ourselves and all coun-
ty staff to recognize the areas


needing the most improvement
and be proactive in needful
areas to prevent problems that
could arise.
In terms of county govern-
ment administration, how will
we address the changes?
Such as Carl Cool's retire-
ment?
As for Carl Cool's retire-
ment, when that occurs we
would, of course, advertise,
interview and choose the most
qualified applicant for the posi-
tion. We are continually train-
ing employees, preparing them
for upward mobility, so that
they are ready to advance to
department heads. When an
opportunity to advance occurs,
these employees are better pre-
pared to compete for that posi-"
tion.


What rolp should the coun-
ty play in regional growth?
Local growth, is our primary
concern, but regional growth is
also a very important issue. Our
county works in. many different
areas in regional growth. We
are members of the six-county
Florida Rural Economic
Development Initiative. One of
our commissioners is chairman
of the (Central Florida)
Regional Planning Council. We
are members of the three-coun-
' ty Heartland Water Coalition,
out of which came the
Heartland Water Alliance,
which has been doing a study
on water availability. We are
one of a nine-county Coalition
for Responsible Management
of Lake Okeechobee.
All of these organizations are
dealing with and making deci-
sions that effect regional

Progress on Kissimmee River restoration continues


Special to the News-Sun
Building on the success of
the first phase of Kissimmee
River Restoration, construction
crews have returned to the
Kissimmee Valley to restore
another four miles of the
Kissimmee River to its historic,
meandering, habitat-rich route.
The second phase of
Kissimmee River Restoration
construction will fill in more
than 1.5 miles of the C-38
canal, the channelized
Kissimmee River, recarving
and restoring four more miles
of the historic river route. The


next phase of construction is
now under way and scheduled
to be completed in 2007.
The multi-phase Kissimmee
River Restoration, led by the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and the South Florida Water
Management District, will ulti-
mately reconnect more than 43
miles of meandering river chan-
nel and restore 40 square miles
of floodplain wetlands.
"In terms of sheer geograph-
ic size and the number of
species that this project bene-
fits, Kissimmee River Restor-
ation is among the largest


ecosystem restoration projects
in the world," said Dennis
Duke, chief of the Corps'
Everglades Division. "As a
forerunner to the massive
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan, this effort
continues to set new standards
for measuring restoration suc-
cess."
The first of four phases of the
Kissimmee River Restoration
project was-completed in 2001.
The first phase filled- in 7.5
miles of the flood control canal
and restored flow to about 115
miles of historic river.

Park Elementary School kindergarten students get up close and personal with a lesson in fire
safety Tuesday afternoon in Avon Park as they watch kindergarten teacher Jean Brown spray a
fire hose at a Dumpster. In honor of National Fire Prevention Week, the Avon Park Fire
Department gave tours of its truck and handed out fire safety coloring books. Students spent the
week learning tips to keep safe.such as how to call 911 for help and to stop, drop and roll in case
of a fire.

during an emergency and there
record important plan informa-
tion on their emergency com-
munication, cards." Home

"When an emergency
occurs, the first thing people
often reach for is a phone tc

RUCKMAN
Continued from 5A
ment was intended to be a neu-
tral force, promoting the will of
the people; being the referee
(like they do in ball games),
deciding what is fair and equal
for the people they represent,
not competing in the game
itself.
In a ball game, the referees
do not get involved in. playing
the game; they interpret the
game's rules and regulations,
fairs and fouls, and penalize
wrongdoers.
True growth in a democracy
is based on the ownership of
land, factories, and other means
of production by, private indi-
viduals who compete with one
another to produce goods and
services for a free market. The
size of government should be
limited to what is produced by
this free enterprise system.

With the proposed exten-
sion of the Sebring Parkway,
What issues have arisen and
how should they be
addressed? Explain.
See the Florida Statutes
Chapter 336 entitled: "County
Road System," as well' as other
transportation laws, and see
how the county has taken mil-
lions of dollars of "Transport-
ation Trust Fund" money and
spent or traded it elsewhere.
(Documentation of many of
these projects will be made
public during my campaign.)

What role should
Highlands County govern-
ment have in illegal immigra-
tion?
According to our federal
Constitution, and laws,


Highlands County has no
authority in restricting any free
trade, travel, or other commer-
cial activity between our neigh-
boring counties or states. The
Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion has authority over every
form of commercial surface
transportation between the
states. In 1940, Congress added
water transportation to the juris-
diction of the ICC.
Illegal immigrants are a
national border issue. If you
disagree with your U.S. legisla-
tors, vote them out.

Define your role as a coun-
ty commissioner.
A true independent has no
particular agenda, other than to
implement the will of the
majority of the people he repre-
sents. Every individual
deserves to be heard in order to
arrive at a best bottom line solu-
tion for every situation or
occurrence that requires a rule
or policy change affecting his
or her everyday life and culture.
My main objective would be
to reverse the flow of dictation
to the people and put the public
back in charge of their business
and private affairs.

How many hours per week
do you have to devote to the
county commission position?
Being flexible is part of pub-
lic service and being retired,
there is no set time limit on
availability.

Is there any other topic or
issue that you feel the county
commission should address,
or that you plan to tackle
while in office?
(1). Commissioners should
vote favorably on more issues
for. the people they represent


rather than for what benefits
governmental bureaucracy.
They should not be judge and
jury on details other than the
requests at hand.
Example: Recently an indi-
vidual was denied rezoning for
construction on agricultural
land condemned by govern-
ment for citrus canker. County
commissioners were more con-
cerned about safety zones on an
airport runway across a state
road from his property, than to
be of help to him. What is
Federal Aviation Admini-stra-
tion, Department of Transpor-
tation, Occupational Safety &
Health Administration, and.
insurance companies, etc. going
to do if county commissioners
assume all their responsibilities.
Instead of lending a helping-
hand, and receiving legitimate
tax revenues from upgraded
commercial property, they want
to pass impact fees (big bucks
on a gamble for something that
may never be constructed).
(2) Because of our over-
grown government's dictatorial
demands on private enterprise,
many of our businesses .have
gone overseas, and are now'
producing and sending their
goods back to us. The state of
California has surveyed over 3
million cargo containers stock-
piled there' from imports, main-
ly from China, with no means
of disposal. They did pass a law
restricting stockpiling these
containers adjacent to residen-
tial areas. Although this is cur-
rently someone else's problem,"
we must address the issues in
our own homes and neighbor--
hoods before we can save a


STOKES
Continued from 5A
growth.
With the proposed exten-
sion of the Sebring Parkway,
What issues have arisen and
how should they be
addressed? Explain.
The sky-rocketing land val-
ues in our county is one of the
major issues in the proposed
extension of the Parkway. The
biggest problem is acquiring
the land. We are trying to nego-
tiate with the land owners to
ensure that they get a fair and
equitable. purchase price, while
also representing the tax
payer's interests.

What role should
Highlands County govern-
ment have in illegal immigra-
tion?
The county government does
not have a role in illegal immi-
gration except as an employer
because illegal immigration is a
federal issue. As an employer,
the county requires every
employee to, complete an 1-9
Employment Eligibility Form
that requires every person that
is not a U.S. citizen to produce
documents to prove that he or
she is indeed a legal resident.
Those documents are verified
by the state.
The county also has a build-
ing enforcement official that
makes sure that every contrac-
tor doing business with
Highlands County, and who
hires labor, has the proper,
authority to do so. This is, also
verified by the state.

Define your role as a coun-
ty commissioner.
A county commissioner is a
spokesperson for the county on
a state and local level. They
make and carry out policy.
They are law makers respond-
ing to arising issues and how
they affect their community,
proactively as well. as reactive-
ly, and work to manage those
issues so that they have a posi-
tive impact on the community.
They are charged with develop-
ing and maintaining a responsi-
ble budget that meets the needs
of the county within the limits
of available resources. A county
commissioner should be rea-
sonably available to help their
constituents when there *is a
need.
How many hours per week
do you have to devote to the
county commission position?
I am in a position to be able
to devote as many hours as nec-
essary to the position of county
commissioner.


. Because there are so many
veterans coming to Highlands
County, we need to do more to
meet their growing needs, such
as medical needs, vocational
rehabilitation, housing needs
and local transportation...
Another issue brought to our
attention in the last two years is
a need to better manage storm
water- run off. I anm working
with the South Florida Water
Management District to get
more structures in place to help
this situation.

"We depend on FAA and

Transportation) grants but
we're no different from any
other airport in the state,"
Shirey said in response to state-
ments made in the petition, to
which Avon Park is not a party.
"Without the grants, we would-

"The city airport has impact
outside its political subdivi-

that triggers a state 'requirement
for the county and Avon Park to
enter into interlocal agreements
and establish a joint zoning
board which he said they
haven't. 'The city took these
actions arbitrarily, without
notice to businesses and home-
owners and without public

their adoption.

county issue.
Define your role as a coun-
ty commissioner.
A county commission sets
policy for the wide ranging
services provided by local gov-
ernment agencies. They should
be current on local problems,
offer vision for the future,
retain control of spending and
be current on the laws.
Commissioners are charged to
make changes when necessary
as well as providing rescue
efforts during disasters. They
should oversee short and long
range planning.

As many as necessary as I
will not be working in my pro-

Is there any other topic or
issue that you feel the county
commission should address,
or that you plan to tackle
while in office?
There are many possibilities
for new issues or topics which
will arise. At this time, I have

more timely date and with
more knowledge.


has been scrambling to draft an
airport ordinance that addresses
the not-so-new requirements of
the runway extension.
In 1990, Highlands County
adopted its comprehensive plan
and in 2003 adopted its future
land use map, which was updat-
ed in December 2004.
Furr said neither the plan nor
the map makes reference to
clear zones or runway protec-
tion zones outside of Avon Park
Executive Airport.
"They superimposed on the
plan an airport zoning restric-
tion that doesn't exist," Furr
said. "They don't have the right
to ignore a zoning application
that comes before the county
that complies, with the .compre-
hensive plan and the future land
use map."
He called the move an illegal
amendment that violates state
planning and development reg-
ulations while circumventing
public notice and hearing pro-
cedures.
Shirey; confirmed that Furr
notified the city. under the Bert
Harris Jr. Act. that Dillev might

utke legal action against the
city. As required by law, Avon
Park notified the. Attorney
General's office- and the
Department of Legal Affairs
No other action is required
by the city and Dilley hasn't
filed suit.
"We're exploring several
options," Shirey said, noting
that he met with an FAA repre-
sentative last week.
Property acquisition to bring
the runway protection zones
back onto airport property was
among the. options discussed,
he said.
Furr noted, in his brief and at
workshops and public hearings,
that the FAA has been conspic'-
uously absent from county
commission meetings.
"They're looking into it,"
Furi said, summarizing his dis-
cussions with the FAA since
August. "They've been absent."
Kathleen Bergen, FAA
spokeswoman, said her
agency's role is to pro ide
guidelines,. leaving ordinance
issues to local governments.

Attitude counts more than skill


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
,v s.-S, u
AVON PARK Jim Renfro is a Flonda native.
Don't let the fact that he s'as born in the state of Maine
fool sou he arrived in the heat of summer and his
parents had only escaped to the North for a short
respite.
He gre\s up in the heart of A'on Park, at the corner
of Verona and State streets, and he loxes it here still.
One recent morning Renfro's phone neser stopped
nnging, pro ing he is his o\ n boss. and of a company
' ith a long and successful business. He and his crews
at Highlands A\ iatlon refurbish airplanes. That ty pical-
Iy means the, take the machines complete. apart and
put them back together again better than the were.
The\ ha\e been doing that for more than 30 \ears, ever
since Renfro founded the company out at the airport in
1974.
It is painstaking work because so much depends
upon the ssork being done properlI.
For example. individual aluminum rivets sometimes
ha\e to be taped off and primed separately from the air-
plane's outer skin, because the\ don't hold the paint
%ell.
Renfro hadn't set out to cet into this business of
details and narro", parameters.
He had learned ho"\ to fly' "anting to be a pilot for a
major airline. But the timing sas off. He couldn't com-
pete %%ith flyers from the military. \\ho logged hundreds
of hours .,ith sophisticated. cutting-edge machine
and "\ere returning home from Vietnam and the Cold
War.
That didn't discourage him. hos e' er. from finding a
\\a.s to still sork ssith planes. which h is ho\\ he found d

Working on planes. hose\ser. turned out to be ven
different from flying them: it is all grit and little glam-
our.
Which is s\h,. shen Renfro looks for help. he looks
more for attitude than skill. Skills can be learned, he
said. but a good attitude can't.
"The labor pool available here iin Highlands
Counts. i is marginal at best." Renfro said. dunng an
inter\ ie" in his office. He looks through a \'indos\ into
the company's main "\ork area. but makes a point of
sta. ing out of the .as. "I make ms living on the tele-
phone." he said. as he gestured to%%ard the ssindow.
"the,, do the dirt\s ork."
He paused a moment in thought then added. "lAs a
society j '\e have devalued labor. I tried to use the col-
lege ibut no one useful applied Sixty percent of the

labor is grunt work." he added. whetherr the labor is
pulling out chairs or removing old paint. "You ha'e to
have passion for the ssork."
Prepping and painting airplanes are similar to auto-
nioti'e body sork, although the size and scale are
grander the paint booth at Highlands A'iation. for
example. is a converted hanger.
While there are idiosyncrasies unique to airplanes.
the type of \\ork and its end results aie the same.
Most refurbishing jobs take 30 day s. or about 1.000
hours, to complete. Some jobs have taken as long as
three to four months. It all depends on the size of the
plane, the depth of the ssork involved, and on occa-
sional, unselcome surprises.
Detailed check lists are kept of every part removed
and replaced. including light bulbs, and the Federal
As iation Authority has, the, final say .on most issues.
especially if significant changes are being made to the
interior, like adding seats or 4 galley.


Surprisingly, Renfro doesn't see much of a long term
future for a%'iation refurbishing in Highlands Counts
He sees the work going to Cuba, once the reign of the
Castro brothers ends.
In the meantime, he is proud to pay \.hat he charac-
terizes as the best trade wages in the county. Most of
his crew members hase been with him for at least 10
sears. and a few for more than tmo decades.
Renfro's business has gross n o'er the years. It no\\
takes up a substantial corner of the As on Park airport.
"Flying is no longer a rich man's club." Renfro said.
and airports ha'e become important to an area's econ-
omn as more and more small businesses are using pri-
'ate planes to travel commercially That means the
A'on Park airport, %%ith its ready access to State Road
64 and U.S. 27. is even more efficient than the Sebring
.airport, .he..spjd. As.business America flies more, the
airport could become the region's best intangible
resource, bringing that business to Highlands County.

Continued from 11A
pany operating out at the Avon
Park airport.
He was referring to the hub
organization used by so many
of the giant airlines. Put sim-
ply, because a company's
planes are all serviced at the
same hub, its planes have to
travel to and from it before
going anywhere else. That
means most commercial flyers
have to change planes at least
once to get to where they are
going.
But the lack of ambiance
also is certainly true. When
actors can shill one product on
television, for example, by.
making fun of an airline's
peanut policy, then you know
airline-service is an issue.
What is developing in the
place of better service on the
large commercial 'carriers, is a
rise of the number of private,
turbine engine airplanes.
Private plane safety has ben-
efited from advanced technolo-
gy. In addition, prices are drop-
ping after a period of steep
increases, and more amenities'
are a% ailable on smaller planes.
Airplanes that are less
expensive initially, and easier
to maintain in the long-run, are
attracting the attention of
smaller companies. Especially
ones that have individuals trav-
eling often to smaller, out-of-
-the-way destinations. The com-
bination of less expensive
plane and customized flight
plan has led to a virtual revolu-
tion in business travel. The day
of the four to 12 seater has
arrived.
Besides the convenience,
Renfro said "Airplanes are
time machines."
For example, they are ideal
for the citrus and ornamental
horticultural companies whose
representatives travel routinely
across Florida. Instead of week
long road trips traveling farm
to farm, they are able to work
in one county all day and
return home for dinner in
another.
But all of this fl\ ini means
maintenance has to be done.
; Enter Renfro .nd hIns crews.
- "We're in the hfc and -afeir\
business, Renfro said. He
pointed out that, unlike a car, a
plane can't pull over to a
shoulder in the sky, should
something go wrong. There is
no give in aviation he said,
everything has to be right the
first time.
Planes undergo four differ-
ent levels of maintenance over
lime. Renfro sjid. The deep
inspection is lVNpicalk, sched-
uled for a plane's major overall
in an effort to save time and
work. It is at this time that the
plane is taken completely
apart.

Beverly Schlehuber has been prepping airplanes for 16 years. She takes special care when stripping
paint off the aluminum, especially on rounded edges, because it is easy to burn through the metal.

With commercial flight increasingly inefficient for the ira'eler. and the cost of private flight dropping,
more and more companies, even small ones, are buying and maintaining their own airplanes. That's
good news for companies like Highlands Aviation, a home-grown business with a nationalclientele.


It is Highlands Aviation's
job to deconstruct the plane.
Piece by piece, everything is
removed and inspected, until
only the frame and outer skin
remain. And the outer skin is
stripped clean dov.n to its rin-
el;s
Then, just as slowly and
carefully, everything is put
back together again.
Some things are rebuilt from
, scratch. For example, the seats.
Those are made by gluing
strips of FAA approved foam
to custom, fit the chair seat and
back. Then the leather, or other
fabric, covers are made by
hand and installed.
Everything has to pass strin-
gent codes, meant to protect
those in the air from every pos-
sible malfunction.
Housed in a series of hang-
ers one hanger is a giant


paint booth and tucked into
the comer of the airport,
Highlands Aviation is well'
away from the bustle and
whine of the nearby highways.
E\en thoulih the crev'.. 'ere
i":'rkiing under tnht deadlines.
I didn't sen- e anl\ .a ilIeti or
undue stress. In fact, the
relaxed atmosphere- reminded
me of easier, pre-fear days,
when airports were' places


where people and machines
freely mixed; joined in the
search for adventure and fun.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS




Moles and mother's nerves


Executive Editor According to my Encarta dic-
tionary, a "mole" can be defined
)TT DRESSEL as a growth 6n the skin. It can
ports Editor also be a burrowing animal or a
spy, but I don't run into those
kinds of moles as often as the
skin kind.
- James, my youngest, has col-
lected a number of skin
growths. He was not born with
them, but they have been with
him for a long time. He has tol-
erated them over the years,
though there were a couple he
S found more irritating than oth-
ers.
One was on the tip of his
right earlobe. He hated that one
and often threatened to cut it off
himself given half a chance.
Naturally, we wouldn't let him
do such a thing.. Instead, we
a decided to get a qualified physi-
cian to do the deed.
This was not simply because
: James was tired of the moles.
Seee moles that look funny
make doctors nervous. Some of
James" moles looked f'unn
o enough that a doctor decided

they needed to be
removed. As in cut
off.
I asked James if
he minded if I

watched. My
macho teenage son assured me
that he didn't need me, but I
could watch if I wanted.
I figured I could handle it.
This wasn't major surgery.
Contrary to popular belief, I
don't faint at the drop of a hat.
I'm a tough gal, right?
So on the scheduled ,day I
pulled James out of school (he
found this the high point of the.
deal) and drove him to the dod-
tor's office. Don met us there..
The doctor prepared by-
drawing ovals around the moles'
that were destined for the knife.
Two of them were on James'
torso, one was on his temple
and of course there was the ear-
ring.
First the doctor injected a'
local anesthetic to numb the
areas around each mole.
Anyone \\ho has been injected


with a local anes-
thetic knows that
sometimes it hurts
enough to make
you wish you had


anesthesia for it.
My macho son surrendered his
machoness and grabbed my
hand. Had I not been there, he
would have probably put a dent
in the exam table with his grip.
- Then the doctor started cut-
ting.. He began with the ones'on
the torso. These were not shal-
low cuts they were deep.
With blood. Exposing what lies
beneath the skin (I will not go
into any more detail than that).
It was not until -the doctor
was stitching up the second
torso cut that I realized I was
quite hot. I could probably have
toughed it out, but I had a bad
feeling about it. So I substituted
Don's hand for mine and got a
glass of water. The nurse \\as
kind enough to provide a chair
for me and I watched the rest of
the surgerN from there.
Of course, Don \\as not both-


ered by any of this. The blood
and stuff didn't faze my hus-
band in the slightest. A good
thing for his patients, I guess.
By the time we finally left
the doctor's office, James had
stitches on his ear, his temple,
and his torso. While his shirt
covered the ones on his body,
the stitches on his temple and
ear were visible for all to see.
Or so we thought. I know of
at least one person who looked
straight. at James and talked
with him without even noticing
black thread on his head and
ear. I'm sure that means some-
thing, but I'm not going there
right now.
By the time you read this,
James will no longer be in
stitches. He wanted me to
include graphic' descriptions,
but I think I will quit while Iarii
ahead.

Another award

for 'Grease':


Editor:
We were iso pleased to read
that "Grease" recently won 10,
Zenons, and Best Play. for
Highlands ; Little Theater's
2005-2006 season. Congratula-
tions to all of the winners, and
S especially Tammie' Pollard,
Heather Boyce and Chris
Hayes. "Grease" was the first
play at the theater that we've
attended since moving to
Sebring a year ago. and we
were v er imnipressed.
We think that perhaps anoth-
er award, "The Show Must Go
On .Award." should be also&
awarded to the talented cast
and crew. During -the SaturdaN
afternoon matinee performance
we 'xere attending. the theater
was hit by lightning during a,
thunderstorm, and the entire
sound system was ruined.
While' sitting in the darkened
theater, most of us were think-
ing that it \as over for the
- afternoon. Much to our delight,

however, the talented, spunky
cast and crew' decided to! finish
the perfoniance Nithotit any
microphones and with music
from an on-stage, small boom


box!
We left there feeling so enter-'
tained and grateful for that very
"professional" group of actors.
That truly was an unbelievable


first Little Theater experience
for us. Thank you again and
congratulations to all.

Another look a


As I hover over
this keyboard, I tend
to realize that it's not
the writing I do, but
the re-writing. And it
isn't always what
I've just written that I
pursue to change.
Sometimes I dig
through my files for L0
something long lost
in the annals of my NoT
records and come up
with an article, Lou M
although having suc-
cessfully been pub-
lished, that I for some reason or
other, lacking something else ...
something added. Something
changed. Something different.
I do this often. I will sit here,
browsing through an old story
and proceed to type. When I'm
done, it's a narrative of different
events. An entirely different
story altogether. Such is the
case of an article I had pub-
lished back in '94. It was enti-
tled, "You're all wet, Sarge."
In that article, I had explicit-
ly described the general charac-
ter and appearance of our Cadre
... the sergeant in charge of our
basic training in Camp
Blanding. I presented him on
paper just as we G.I.'s viewed
him: A. six-foot-four, buck
toothed, 250 pounds, who was
as "hard as nails," as most of us
put .it. He never smiled or
wavered an inch, even after
accidentally walking slain bang
into a creek while stepping
alongside our column as he
marched us over a bridge. .
He climbed out of that stream
like nothing ever happened ...
although he was soaking wet
from top to "tippy toe" and con-
tinued calling our cadence.
However, we had fallen out and
were bowled over in hysterics
until the corporal standing by us


BOOK

fingacci


brought us back to
formation again. That
incident seemed to
always come up dur-
ing conversations
among us until our
training was complet-
ed.
We called him
"Bunny," by the way,
although never to his
face.
I remember think-
ing that Bunny, or
Sergeant Behrens,
which was his real


name, may have just been put-
ting on a show for us. And
though, tough as he appeared to
be during our basic training, he
was stem enough to make us
young recruits "hate his guts"
so to speak. But he turned out to
be an all right guy after all.
It was late spring in 1944. I
hadn't even turned 18 yet, and
our training was at an end. The
war in the Pacific was still
going strong and in Europe, the
Allies were battering the
Germans all over France. That
was the area, by the way, where
most of us ventured for the
Battle of the Bulge.
Anyway, right after break-
fast, Bunny blew his whistle. A
signal call to formation and as
usual, a perfect formation it
was. Then, Bunny called us to
"at ease."
Captain Black addressed us
formally and gave us congratu-
lations. Then Sergeant Behrens
stepped forward to express his
feelings on our achievement. I
can never' forget his words
when he said, "You have done
me proud and it's been a long
haul since coming off that train
a few months back and you're
ready for what lies ahead ...
hopefully.
"Some of you have been bit-


t Sarge

ter about the way I treated you
... but it's my way. I hope you
will overlook it ... the way I
overlooked being called ...
'Bunny.' "The shock waves hit
us. He smiled; those buck teeth
just shining there in the sun-
light.
Through the murmur of voic-
es throughout the ranks, aston-
ishment overcame us. He knew
all along and never said a word.
"I have been going through that
sort of thing," he said, all my
life, so I would not let it bother
me none, here."
Then he said something that
really started us. "Do you
remember the time when I
walked into the creek?"
Somebody piped up. "That
wasn't planned, was it?"
"It sure was," Bunny
answered. "It was the third time
I did that."
Throughout all the comments
and laughter in the ranks,
Captain Black piped up, "The
sergeant has a way of pulling
you boys out of the slumps now
and then." Then he looked at,
Bunny and motioned him to
continue.
"I'm proud of you," Bunny-
said, "and I'm sure you will do
a good job, wherever you go. I
wish I were going with you, but
I cannot, as I have more men to
train. I will think of you often ...
all of you." There was a great
murmur in the ranks. As his
head turned, I could see tears
welling up in his eyes and I said
to myself, "This guy's got some
compassion after all."
I never saw him again after
that, but throughout the ejrs I
would be reminded of Bunny
and I would wonder.

Opposite results are reaped


through revenge or forgiveness


The unimaginable
is now all too vivid.
The peaceful, non-
threatening lifestyle
of the Amish and the
innocence of their
children have been
shattered. They are
stunned, as are we;
and, we pray, weep
and mourn with them
for their extraordi-
nary losses.
Again and again
the unanswerable
questions of "How


REFLECTIONS

Jan Merop


can this be?" and "Why?" come
to mind.
From the many news reports
on television, radio and the
Internet, we have learned that
the killer sought revenge for
something that he hadn't let go
of for 20 years.
Twenti vear-.
Imagine the deep roots of bit-
terness, anger and hate that had
festered into this vengeful 'act-
against innocent, young victims
not even related to his memo-
ries?
Revenge.
It is the outcome of a putre-
fying wound in which the per-
son has not allowed the balm of
forgiveness to create healing,
scars. Though-scars may blem-
ish the smoothness of skin, they
are the result of inner and outer
healing.
Emotional wounds need to
be healed from inside and out-


side, too. But, all too
often the misunder-
standing of forgive-
ness makes that deci-
sion seem impossible
- when in reality it
disarms revenge.
Forgiveness.
The offended
party by an act of
his will relin-
quishes his perceived
right to revenge. In
essence he doesn't
hold the offender
responsible to him,


but'releases him to God.
The Bible is clear about this
when it says in Romans 12: 19,
NIV, "Do not take revenge, my
friends, but leave room for
God's wrath, for it is written: 'It
is mine to avenge; I will repay,'
says the Lord."
According to the Bible, it
cost God his only Son, Jesus
Christ, to provide forgiveness
to us for our sins. When that
forgiveness permeates us, we
are enabled to. forgive.
Forgiveness is not denying the
need for justice against those
who perpetrated harm; but from
a personal standpoint, it's trust-
ing God to'deal with the person
in his time and his way.
In this act, the offended party
is now open to God's healing
grace in his own life and he is
free from bitterness ahnd anger
that would seek to hold him in


bondage.
Nor does forgiveness mean
that the one offended must trust
the other party or continue in a
relationship. Rather, it helps
him let go of what will eventu-
ally destroy him and, in the
horrific actions at the Amish
one-room school house -
destroy innocent life.
In one of his suicide notes for
his family, the killer said that he
was angry at life and. angry at ;
God. That anger had seethed
inside though on the outside
he had successfully masked it to
family and friends for a time.
Remarkably, the Amish --
the offended victims of this
man's vengeful act -- are say-
ing things like, "Pray for ts" as "
they seek to forgive.and to pray
for his family. This is a costly
act of hunulity for grieving par-
ents and community an
ongoing process of a lifetime.
The diametrical extreme
between forgiveness and
revenge is jarringly evident.
The Amish know that choos-
ing forgiveness will nurture
beneficial outcomes rather than
the ugly -consequences of
revenge that they have been ,
forced to experience.

SECTION C + SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2006


NE\WS-SUN SEBRING, FLA.


If you lift

your hands
No words were necessary.
My little son ran to me
with arms upraised. I lifted
him up and hugged him. He
tilted his head back, looked
into my eyes and said, "I
love you, Mommy."
Other times, he'd come
with upraised hands for
comfort; or, to simply be
swung around for fun and
laughter.
Memories like those are a
glimpse away though.
they span for more than 30
years.
However, I remember,
another time when with
childlike expectation and
arms uplifted, he
approached a family mem-
ber. But that person patted
his head. Mv son awkw ard-
1l lowered his hands and
turned away, disappointed.
Uplifted hands are com-
mon in worship to God
They're an expression of
devotion, acclaim, honor
and praise. But, rumbling
around mi mind are ly rics
to a song that sa\ something
like. "If %ou Itft \our hands.
he %\ill lift you up."
SImmediately, the picture
of my young son comes to
mind. When he lifted his
hands to me. he expected
me to lift him up.
\'hat a likeness of God
that is for me a fresh wvay,
of looking at raising m\
hands in w worship. When I
simple want to worship and
tilt my head back and sa\. "1
love \ou," he is there for
me. :
Should I be downcast. I
can lift up mi hands and he
, will lift me up to comfort
and sustain me.
If I'm celebrating. I run ,
joyfully to him hands
upraised and know that
he \\ill sw'.eep me off my
feet and suing me around
happy to be acknot' I-
edged in e'erN aspect of mni
life.
But, how eas\ to mis-
place mni trust and experi-
ence disappointment
Perhaps even ith someone
close to me I go expecting
them to understand m\ heart
and. figuratively. I "lift myi
hands." Yet. I'm not uplifted
and supported. Rather I'm
let do%%n 'when they dismiss
my feelings.
I ha'e probably done that-
to someone else. Not truly
understanding or taking the
time to listen. I may ha'e
dismissed them with a pat
on their head. so to speak.
That is \hy the most -
important relationship \e
can cultivate is the one with
our Lord and Sal ior, Jesus
Christ. He never leaves us
or foisakes us and is altwa\s
present to uplift, comfort
and celebrate with us. And,
he will e' er intercede for
our deepest heart cries.
"Because your lo\e is
better than life, my lips will
glorify you. I will praise
you as long as I live, anid in
your name I will lift up my
hands," based on Psalm 63:
3-4, NIV.
Lift your hands and be
picked up. Selah.

famnuly ho supported and cared for her.
she also had friends like Susie \rhitehead
w dho organized meals to be delivered, ran
errands or \went %' ith her to appointments.
At the same time of Albriton's diagno-
sis. her daughter had been pronused a
horse for her 11th birthday. "She'd spent a
sear mucking out stalls and taking care of
horses on a volunteerr basis and I felt that
she earned it. But in reality that horse
helped me recover. There were so man\
new% things happening in our lies to figure
out and share." Albritton said.
Ricki said her horse. Cooper. helped her
mother a lot. "He's a happy horse, and he
seemed to know \\hat Momn % as going
through. It \as a shock to all of us when
she w\as diagnosed. Although I was a
child, an. one could tell it k\as serious just
b, looking at her. It was a helpless feeling
at first, and I watched d to see ho'\ she was
taking it I learned a lot from her, and am
glad it happened. Now Mom's ha% ing lots
of fun. She plays guitar, she took up
archers. \works out at the local gym, and
runs 5K races. She makes every minute
count," Ricki said.
"I sa'ed e'ery card received and kept
them out for those two years. The\ were

afraid of cancer or dying. Lots of good
things occurred." Diania Albritton said. She
made lasting friendships with women
older than 65 who also worked out in the
water at the Highlands Counts Family
YMCA. "When diagnosed. I'd al\. ay s
worked, so it was the first summer I ever
had so much time with my daughter. It
was a bold summer for both of us. When
she started school in fall, I told her it was
the best summer I'd ever had. I'm very
thankful for every thing that's happened.
Now I'm living the second half of my life
and I know\ it's important to have positive
people around me. That's why I like the

*Here are some facts about
rea'st' cancer:
.; 'Every two minutes a
.woman is diagnosed 'itth
breast,cancer.-
Si More than 211.000 new
cases of breast cancer are
expected this year.
..- Qne woman in eight who
Jives. to'age 85 will develop
brdast'cancer in her lifetime.
.::'- It's the leading cause of
'death' ,in women between the
ages of 40 and 55.
:. It's predicted that 1.600
Tn will be diagnosed %wth
breast cancer this year and 400
wil die.
.!. Seventy percent of all
breast cancers are found
through breast self-examns.
Eight out of 10 breast
lumps are not cancerous.
Mammography is a low-
dose X-ray exam that can
detect..breast cancer up to t'o
.y.ears'before it is lared enough
to be felt.
l" When breast 'cancer is
,found earl, the five-year sur-
'ial rate is 96 percent. There
are, more than 2 million breast
'cancer survivors in America
today.

'How to do breast
self-examnination
Here's three methods in howt
to do a breast self-examination:
In the shower: Fingers
fiat, move gently over ever
part of each breast. Use rour
right hand to examine left
,breast, left 'hand for right
breast. Check for an. lump.
hard knot or thickening.
Carefully observe any changes
fn your breasts.
Before a mirror: Inspect
your breasts with arms at your
sides. Next, raise your arms
high overhead. Look for an.
changes in contour of each
breast. a swelling. a dimpling
of skin or changes in the nipple
Then reset palm on hips and
pressdfirmly to flex your chest
muscles. Left and right breasts
will not exactly match ter "
.women's breasts do.
' Lying down: Place pillow%
under right shoulder, right arm
behind your head. With fingers
of left hand flat. press right
breast gently in small circular
motions, moving _erticall\ or
in a circular pattern covering
the entire breast. Use light.
medium and firm pressure
Squeeze nipple: check for dis-
charge and lumps. Repeat these
steps for your left breast.

Bookshelves stocked with ways to various plants


It's the fruit those with diver-
ticulitis avoid like the plague. I
refer to that fruit most pleasing
of taste and smell, the strawber-
ry. Did you know it is the only
fruit that grows its seeds on the
outside? Our book "Eat the
Fruit, Plant the Seed" gives
directions for growing plants
from the seeds found inside
avocados, papayas, citrus fruits,
mangos, pomegranates and
kiwis (but not strawberries).
Would-be 'strawberry growers
could take, home "Grow Your
Own Plants: From Seeds,
Cuttings, Division, Layering,
and Grafting" by Jack Kramer,
because, fortunately, strawberry
plants help us out by putting out
runners with the express 'pur-
pose of starting new plantlets.

Alive!' shows

AVON PARK The ARP
Players of Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church ARP will
present a biblical depiction.
"Samuel Comes Ali'.e!" from 1
Samuel 1-19, in the fellowship
hall at the church W\Vednesday.
The performance %ill follow
the church dinner. which h begins
at 6 p.m. The Adult Bible
Fello~ ship. a Sunda) school
class for adults, usually meets
at 9 a.m. Sunday for a fellow-
ship and at 9:30 a.m. Sunday
for the Bible study, led by Tom
Christoph. TheC formed a group
of players and \\ill produce and
present the 19 chapters of
Samuel they have studied so
far.
The follow inDa have been cast

There is something very sat-
isfying about growing your own
plants. Whether you use paper
cups, plastic pots, or just scatter
seeds in the ground, your efforts.
will be more successful if you
take home "Seeds: the Ultimate
Guide to Growing Vegetables,
Herbs & Flowers" or "Growing
From Seed," one in the
American Horticultural Society
Practical Guides series.
Children especially enjoy
learning about nature, so take
home for them "The. Hidden
Magic of Seeds," the audio-
visual tape and book called
"Germination," or the let's-
read-and-find-out series title,
"Seeds bN Wind and Water."
Te\t and photographs
describe the many different,


ways that seeds travel and dis-
perse in "Seeds Pop, Stick,
Glide." And who hasn't taken a
walk, only to discover a number
of previously unnoticed hitch-
hiker seeds, on their socks and
pant legs? Unfortunately, those
sticky seeds never turn out to be
edible, but we do have seeds
(besides strawberry seeds) that
are good to eat, such as sun-
flower seeds or pumpkin seeds.
Speaking of pumpkin seeds. I
like "Pumpkin Circle: The
Story of a Garden," with
rhy ming text and photographs
that follow a pumpkin patch as
it grows and changes from
seeds to plants to pumpkins
ready to harvest, to jack-o-
lanterns and then to seeds again.
Children's author/illustrator


Eric Carle's "The Tiny Seed" is
a simple description of a flow-
ering plant's life cycle through
the seasons. Florida gardeners
know that our seasons are near-
ly opposite of those in the
northern tier of states. Many of
our winter plants, such as snap-
dragons and pansies, are sum-
mer plants up north, but could-
n't take our extreme summer
heat and humidity, and some of
our summer plants just can't get
a long enough summer season
for optimum growth anywhere
but in the South.
Make it easy on yourself by
planting for our climate. Check

Black pearl peppers demonstrates superior performance


The Agricultural Research
Service is the research branch
of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. In the past, their
work has brought us products
such as Deet (used to repel
mosquitoes) and Superslurper,
the magic stuff inside of diapers
that can soak up many times its
own weight in water. Their
monthly publication,
"Agricultural Research," high-
lights some of their current
projects.
A new cultivar of pepper
named black pearl was released
in 2005 and was recently hon-
ored as a 2006 All-America
Selections winner. The award
recognizes new flower and veg-
etable varieties that demon-
strate superior garden perform-
ance in trials conducted
throughout the country. The
black pearl is a robust plant and
resists attacks from many
insects and fungi and is remark-


ably drought-tolerant. Since its
release, more than 2 million
seeds have been sold.
Other new pepper cultivars
for future release include one
with spreading black foliage
and colorful upright peppers
with a spicy flavor. Another is
tall, growing as high as 3 feet. A
third, which produces fruit
around Halloween, has black
foliage and orange, pumpkin-
shaped fruit.. Breeding a new
cultivar takes 10-15 years and
involves making crosses and
submitting the resulting plants
to rigorous tests.
With fuel prices on the rise,
developing alternative energy
sources has become a priority.
Many states have been increas--
ingly taking advantage of wind
energy, a renewable resource.
Texas and Minnesota are
among the top five states pro-'
ducing wind energy. Wind
power today is generated by


turbines that use only
two or three very
long, sleek blades,
unlike the quaint,
multibladed wind-
mills that once sym-
bolized the West.
"Wind farms," clus-
ters of 50-200 wind
turbines 'producing
power to sell to elec- NEW
trick companies, are i
set in areas with
winds of 17 miles per WATI
hour or more. The -
turbines are huge Jennifi
machines, about the --
size of a Boeing 747
airplane, and can produce
enough electricity to power
more than 500 average homes.
Wind farm companies pay
farmers and landowners about
$3,000 per tower per year, and
towers are spaced about every
100 acres.
Farms in Texas are using


FROM

imnellers


solar energy to power
electric pumps for
irrigation and for fill-
ing water troughs for
cattle in remote loca-
tions on open range:
Researchers have
found that solar pow-
ered pumps are best
for pumping up
water from less than
100 feet deep, while
wind power works
better at pumping up
deeper water. For
both solar and wind-
driven systems,
primps that use
to lift water worked


better than those with pistons.
Ethanol is another alternative
fuel source. Ethanol is an alco-
hol based fuel made from the
sugars found in grains such as
corn, sorghum, and wheat.
Scientists are .working on
cheaper ways to make ethanol


by using all parts of plants and
trees. Researchers have found
inspiration from an interesting
source, shiitake mushrooms.
Scientists have copied a shi-
itake gene that lets the mush-
room produce and enzyme
known as .xylanase. This
enzyme helps convert decaying
wood into sugars that shiitakes
use for food. In the laboratory,
researchers successfully trans-
ferred the gene into a yeast,
which was then able to produce
xylanase, something it can't
normally do. Next they'll try to
modify the gene so it enables
the yeast, or some other organ-


ism to make more of the
xylanase enzyme in less time.
Such a boost in efficiency might
one day help make production
of plant-based fuels an even
more practical alternative to
petroleum products.

6C News-Sun, Sunday, October 15, 2006


LIFESAVER
Continued from 1C
bers and is a regular attendee.
She was presented this last
Wednesday the CeCe Courage
Award, which recognizes a
woman who displays a tremen-
dous amount of courage for
that month. The award was
named after Carolyn "CeCe"
Crane, of Sebring, who moved
from Key West last year. She
read about the club in the
News-Sun when it first started
and called Albritton to make
sure the meeting place was
wheelchair accessible.
"She's a cool lady. She has a
disability and she's so excited
about coming to this club that
she didn't let her disability
stand in the way of her coming
to the meetings," Albritton
said. "That takes a lot of
courage."
Therefore, each month in
honor of Crane a woman is
recognized with a bouquet of
flowers from Hobby Hill
Florist for showing courage.
Dawes was a perfect exam-
ple of someone demonstrating
courage. Her mother died 17
years ago from breast cancer,
her maternal grandparents also
died of cancer, and just last
month Dawes found out her
first cousin in Kentucky, who
is 36 years old, had a double
mastectomy because of breast
cancer.
"I was shocked with her.
She never had a mammogram,
she found it on her own,"
Dawes said about her cousin.
"When I am selling insurance,
I find people who have never-
had a cancer screening.
AFLAC pays for cancer
screening. I am a big advocate
for it."
Dawes stated that she know s
of three cases of local women
who did not have any screen-
ings done. Two are fighting the
dreadful disease right now, one
recently died.
The award was an honor for
Dawes, but most importantly
she enjoys attending the meet-
ings.
"This group was so;needed
in our community. The most
impressive part is that ladies of
l1l age-, are inmol\ed And-',
every person has so much to,,
share from the youngest at
age 21 to the oldest retiree -
they've all found it a valuable
networking tool. Lunch Club
Wednesday has snowballed
and as a result, many women's
lives have been affected in a
positive manner. I'm so glad to
be part of it," Dawes said.

Impacting others
Like Dawes, Albritton also
decided to go into insurance
sales. Because of what she
went through, she opened
Albritton Insurance two and a
half years ago to help others.
"It affected me, and I knew I
needed to help others and
could even save them money. I
have compassion for people in
pain. When people ask how
I'm doing I always say, 'better
and better.' We make a choice
every single day when we
wake up as to what our attitude
will be. Life gets so complicat-
ed. I now concentrate and
focus on living in the fioment.
I still write my goals. And I
feel everything happens for a
reason and a higher purpose. I
was given breast cancer and
am thankful for it. And Lunch
Club Wednesday was created
as a result of it," Albritton said.
Because she'd networked all
her life, she saw the need for a
"women only" group. Because
of the growth of Highlands
County, women are moving
here who want connections,
whether professional or just
friendships.
"Some women attending
Lunch Club Wednesday had
never spoken before a group. It
is a supportive sisterhood, with
everyone involved and full of
ideas. It's awesome how the
club has changed lives and
given women more power. I
want these women to discover


something I did how to find
your own inner strength. So
many lives have touched mine,
I hope I make a positive
impact," Albritton said.
Cove was definitely impact-
ed by Albritton's story last
Wednesday and it helped her
open up more and share her
personal experience with can-
cer. Diagnosed with breast can-
cer last year, she knows both
sides of the bedrails clinical
and patient.
"I worked during that time,
taking chemotherapy and radi-


ationn n an outpatient basis.
People were surprised when I
was diagnosed. I had no family
history, never smoked and was
healthy at 47. But it had been
six years since a breast exam. I
believed I was invincible and
was always too busy. In fact
I'd cancelled an optional can-
cer policy, believing it would
never happen to me. I'm a pos-
itive person, with lots of faith
and courage. My family is the
same, and now we're even
closer and appreciate our time
together," Cove said.
Cove advises people to
know your own body. "Don't
just hand it over to a doctor. Be
an active participant and stay
informed. Get a second opin-
ion. Ask if you don't under-
stand things. The old school of
thinking was doing whatever
the doctor told you, but they're
human too. You control your
destiny and are the most
important part of the team
when making decisions. I feel I
was given breast cancer to bet-
ter understand patients and to
be their advocate. I've grown,"
Cove said.
Cove feels coping with
breast cancer can be difficult
for some women with all the
stress today on outward
appearance. Losing a breast
affects your self image. "It's
just too important not to get a
breast exam. They don't catch
all of them, but lots. It's the
wisest decision to have,a mam-
mogram every year once you
hit 40," Cove said;
As for other members who
have been impacted by'
Albritton's networking club,
Rose Marie Tippins, of Lake
Placid, said "It's informative,
fun, and moves at a nice pace.
It's a great way to meet new


people."
Wini Quesenberry, of Lake
Placid, felt it was upbeat and
informative. "I was having one
of those days, and it lifted my
spirits."
"It's an opportunity to know
other women in business, to
not only share services but
knowledge. It's like a sister-
hood," Charlene "Charlie"
Stroop, of Sebring, said.
After Linda Woods husband
had cancer three years ago and
died, she found herself back in
the workforce as a Realtor.
"It's a great networking tool.
And there are always good
speakers to learn from. I wish
they met more often," Woods
said.
Lunch Club Wednesday
meets the second Wednesday
of every month. There is no fee
for membership, but the $10
lunch is a requirement. Doors
open at 11:30 a.m. and the
,hot/cold buffet starts at noon,
with the meeting from 12:15 -1
p.m. The meetings are in the
Elks Lodge 1529, which is
across from historic
Kenilworth Lodge. The $10
buffet includes drink, tax and
gratuity. Checks are accepted if
made out to Sebring Elks
Lodge. Call Albritton at 381-
8170 for reservations. Invite a
friend, or attend and make a
new friend.
After hearing Albritton's tes-
timonial, the audience was
given a pack of five Lifesavers
candies to take and share the
candy and her story with five
other women..This in turn she
hoped would empower 500
more women and then they
could become a lifesaver.

News-Sun Night/Weekend
Editor Cindy Marshall con-
tributed to this story.


MammaMoo, portrayed by Cindy Marshall of Avon Park, passes out candies to ladies attending the
Lunch Club Wednesday meeting. Diana Albritton's mother Carolyn Coarsey (left) was given a special
gift from MammaMoo for being an outstanding mother while Albritton battled breast cancer. The cow
character added comic relief to a meeting that was focused on a serious subject matter.


It was a sea of pink as women from all over Highlands County attended the Lunch Club Wednesday
meeting last Wednesday. They came decked in pink in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This is just a few of the more than 110 women who participated.

Florida friendly landscaping


designed for developers, builders


News-Sun classified ads get results
385-6155 452-1009 465-0426


There is a great deal of build-
ing going on in the area; every-
thing from commercial to indi-
vidual houses to developments
to condominiums. Almost 100
percent of the building sites are
systematically cleared and
reshaped to fit, the needs of the
building. Very few noninvasive
native trees and shrubs are
retained. Retaining or restoring
natural areas provides habitat
for wildlife and minimizes
maintenance requirements.
"Right plant, right place' is
the key to Florida friendly land-
scaping. Plants that are appro-
priate for the site and are
installed properly are better
adapted, healthier and require
less water and maintenance.
Mulch the tree and shrub areas
to retain moisture and control
weeds. Use alternative mulch,
such as pine straw or bark,'
melaleuca, eucalyptus or recy-
cled material, instead of
cypress. This protects valuable
wetlarid habitats where cypress
trees grow. Limit maintenance


and water cost by using
grass only where need-
ed. Turf .should be less
than 50 percent of your
landscape area and use i
drought tolerant grass-
es such as bahiagrass.
Stormwater runoff,
rainwater that rushes
off yards and streets
carrying nutrients,
soil, pesticides. and SFJ
petroleum residue, is
a major source of Edi
water pollution.
When rain water is
retained and used by
plants onsite, it minimizes the
need for irrigation and reduces
runoff. Are there swales, reten-
tion ponds, berms and other.
landscape features that retain
runoff on the property? Is
rooftop runoff directed to
mulched or :planted : areas?
Another way to retain rooftop
runoff is to install cisterns or
rain barrels.
Properly designed and
installed irrigation systems use


IA
A


water more efficiently.
A sprinkler system
costs the typical resi-
dent from $4 to $10
every time .it operates;
or $32 to $80 per
month during dry peri-
ods. Still, some studies
indicate up to 30 per-
cent of outdoor irri-
WING gation is wasted. Use
SON drip, low volume or
micro-irrigation on
yen separate zones in
shrub areas and
water turf as needed
by installing a soil
moisture sensor or rain shut off
devise.
If the home borders a water-
front there should be no turf or
high-maintenance plantings
adjacent;to water. Use appropri-
ate low-maintenance 'ground.
covers and plants between the
lawn and shoreline to create a
fertilizer/pesticide buffer zone.
Use native aquatic vegetation in
the shoreline area.

12-3A win Friday night at
Firemen's Field. A couple of
uncanny bounces and bad
breaks changed the complexity
of the game for Sebring and
ruined its playoff hopes.
The Bulldogs took over on
dow\ ns at their ow n 25-N ard line
and needed just five plays to
cash' in as Tony Wallace ran
around the right side of the
Blue Streaks defense for a 48-
yard touchdown run. Arturo
Vargas' extra point kick raised
the lead to 7-0.% ith 4:26 left in
the opening period.
Sebring dro\e the ensuing
possession 59 yards in eight
plays before quarterback A.C.
\\ilson lost the handle on the
ball and Br. an \VW nck raced 99
yards for a touchdown The
announcer called it an intercep-

bad pitch.

the deficit in half at 14-7 with

The Bulldogs made the most
of the final three minutes of the
half, scoring two more touch-
downs Tony Wallace capped
an eight-play, 80-yard drive

zone. Vargas' kick raised the
lead to 21-7 and DeSoto had -all

BASS
Continued from 1D
4-pounder, I woti1d run all over
the neighborhood, showing it
off. It w as a big bass.'After liv-
ing here. and fishing here, I
soon learned that it takes a
really big bass to interest my
neighbor. He has an anno\ in,
habit of laughing at anything
weighing, less than 5 pounds.
According. to records I have
been able to dig up, the present
record largemouth bass caught
in Florida weighed 20 13


pounds. A.fellow b\ the name
of Fritz Friebel took it while
fishing in Big Fish Lake on
NMarch 19, 1923. Sorre. I don't
kino w here the aptl\ named
Big Fish Lake is.. .
The nesting season for bass
occurs in the first few months
of the yeai in Florida. The nest
is located sometimes in just a
few inches of water. but can be
found in water as deep as 5 to
6 feet. Spawning will begin as
the water warms up, but a cold
spell- can interrupt and delay
the spawtning process


Largemouth bas, are aquic .
predators. The\ attack and eat
smaller lish. including their
offspring.
Our tremendous number of
good, Iwell-stocked fresh%%ater .
lakes along with our super
x% weather add up to the best bass
fishing in the world, so get out,
and take ad antage of our great,'
outdoors and trN to get that tro- ,
phN bass.. ,

Accused Duke

lacrosse players

to speak out
Comments will air on
'60 Minutes' tonight
By AARON BEARD
Associated Press
DURHAM, N.C. Angry
they have been charged with a
rape they say they didn't com-
mit, three members of Duke
University's lacrosse team say
in an upcoming television
interview that the accusations
have hurt their lives and those
of their families for good -
even if they end up being
cleared.
"You don't know what that
does to me and to my family
and to the people that care
about me," said Reade
Seligmann, 20, who was inter-
viewed on CBS's "60 Minutes"
along with Collin Finnerty, 20,
and David Evans, 23. The net-
work on Friday released
excerpts of the interviews,
which are to air today and are
Seligmann's and Finnerty's
first public comments about the
charges.
A grand jury has indicted
them on charges of rape, kid-
napping and sexual offense.
Defense attorneys have strong-
ly proclaimed their innocence,
and Evans did so personally
following his indictment in
May.
The accuser, a student at
nearby North Carolina Central
University, told police she was
raped in a bathroom by three
menat a March 13 off-campus
team party where she had been
hired as a"stripper. *
"I never expected anyone to
get indicted, let alone myself,"
Finnerty said. "It's changed my
life, no matter what happens
from here on out. It's probably
going to be something that
defines me my whole life."
Evan said the accuser "has
destroyed everything I worked
for in my life" and "split apart a
community and a nation on
facts that just didn't happen and.
a lie that should never have
been told."
District Attorney Mike
Nifong, who has come under
fire in Durham and elsewhere
for his aggressive pursuit of the
case, was out of town at a con-
ference Friday. He has general-
ly refused to comment about
*the case.
Along with the three players,
the "60 Minutes" report
/ / includes an interview with Kim
Roberts, another dancer hired
to perform at the party.
According to the CBS
excerpts, Roberts contradicts
the accuser's statement to
police that the two women
were holding onto each other
when three men separated them
and pulled the accuser into the
bathroom. She said it didn't
happen.
That version of events is one
of several the accuser has told
police. Seligmann's attorney
has said they number at least a
dozen, and the details have var-
ied, including the number of
men who assaulted her.
Roberts also told CBS that
the accuser gave no indication
that she had been assaulted or
raped. "She obviously wasn't
hurt ... because she was fine,"
Roberts said.
But in an April interview
with the AP, Roberts said that
while the accuser arrived at the
party sober, she was so inco-
herent by the time the women
left the party that she was
unable to say where she lived.
Roberts told the AP in April
she was not in the bathroom,
"so I can't say a rape occurred
and I never will." She told
police the rape allegations were
a "crock" and that she was with
the accuser the entire time they
were at the party, according to
documents filed by the defense.

DRAGONS
Continued from 1D
downs in the final 35.6 seconds
of the first half to take the lead,
for good.
Both scores came the same
way, too, with quarterback
Conlin Veley hooking up with
wideout George Rasmussen.
The first was an 11-yarder to
make it 14-12, which was
quickly followed by O.J.
Williams' third interception of
the half.
On the final play before half-
time, Veley heaved a bomb to
Rasmussen, who was.well-cov-
ered inside the 5-yard line but
still managed to make the grab
for the score and an 18-14 half-
time lead.'
"When was the last time we
got a break?" Maddox said.
"Their safety was in good posi-
tion, but ju st misjudged the ball
and George made a good catch.
That's the first time we've had
something positive go our way
in a while.
"They went to sleep in the
first half for some reason. We
went over it on the chalkboard
at halftime and they did a better
job in the second half."
Lake Placid's next scoring
drive took all of one play a
64-yard run by Gist during
which he broke at least three
tackles. That made. it 25-14
with 5:16 left in the third peri-
od.
The Dragons sealed the win
